motto of Lebanon Valley College. To 
practice this motto's spirit would probably be more 
in conformity with the ideals of this institution's 
founders than to devote pharisaically many bombastic 
paragraphs of this preface to a half-hearted thesis 
elaborating upon its meaning. Believing in "Liberty 
through Truth," the staff of the Quittapahilla here- 
with disavows all other themes. 

When it became known on the campus that the 
staff had renounced nebulous themes, some individuals 
feared that the 1939 Quittapahilla might lack 
originality. The staff, however, determined to make 
this publication truly unconventional by presenting 
it frankly as an attempt to meet the genuine purposes 
and requirements of an annual. 

A year-book is intended to give immediate pleas- 
ure, to provide a pictorial record for posterity, and 
to advertise the College's merits as an institution of 
intellectual, spiritual, and physical development. 
Readers do not expect a dissertation dealing with 
some glorious abstract idea; neither do they want a 
historical treatise, a literary masterpiece, or an 
astronomical disquisition. What is required of an 
annual is a maximum of photographic record and a 
minimum of unnecessary discourse. 

To the excellent quality of this volume's photog- 
raphy, mute testimony is appealingly provided by the 
pictures themselves. Humor being restricted to pic- 
tures intentionally funny, it will not offensively in- 
trude upon serious subjects to mar the immediate 
enjoyment of the publication. When, also, the dust 
is blown off this book in the future, life-like images 
will correct the distortion of memories. Examining 
vivid reflections in the Quittapahilla, even those 
who have not shared the mirrored toil and pleasures 
of our campus will come to know life at Lebanon 
Valley College. 

The staff of the Quittapahilla believes that all 
who have entered into the multifarious experiences of 
this memorable period in our Alma Mater's history 
will find in this publication the spirit of Lebanon 
Valley College — "Liberty through Truth."

The President's Message 

The Galilean declared, 'And ye shall know the truth, and 
the truth shall make you free." In selecting Libertas Per 
Veritatem as their motto, the founders of Lebanon Valley 
College cognized the essential relation of the liberal arts to 

Science emancipates us from drudgery — but what price 
freedom? Personality is violated; ethical standards are de- 
stroyed; human relations are demoralized; international law 
yields to anarchy; mechanized warfare 
accentuates "man's inhumanity to 
man," threatening to make a shambles 
of modern civilization. 

Totalitarianism is throttling democ- 
racy; Ca:sar denies his regimented 
slaves the right to any other allegiance 
— even to their God. What a frightful 
debacle in the stream of human history ! 
What an anti-climax in man's long 
struggle for freedom ! 

Truth alone can save society from 
chaos: the saving truth is that the 
universe is friendly to the conservation 
of human values. The Soul of the Uni- 
verse challenges man to transcend his 
animality to become a co-worker in 
guiding society toward that "one far- 
off divine event, to which the whole 
creation moves." The Galilean reveals 
the way. 

Clyde A. Lynch, A.M., D.D., Ph.D. 


The Dean's Message 

I commend to you the motto of your Alma Mater : Libertas 
Per Veritatem — a most appropriate motto, for in it is contained 
the purpose of a liberal education. 

The first word expresses the most cherished ideal of every 
individual and people. All desire freedom: the high and the 
low, the rich and the poor, the learned and the unlearned, 
the good and the evil; but too little attention is given to the 
true means for its attainment. This is revealed in the other 
two words of the motto. 

It is through truth that real freedom 
is attained. But truth is more than 
fact. Truth comes as a result of com- 
parison and reflection and is to be 
found in the harmonious pattern which 
the Divine Mind has designed for the 
world. When you have found your 
place in this pattern, then you have 
found truth and freedom. 

In this greeting to you my fondest 
desire is that, as a result of your study 
here, you may prove the truth of the 
motto of your Alma Mater. 

A.M., Ph.D.

Men's Senate 


Gordon Davies 

Vice-President . . Adolph Capka 
. . Robert Tschop 

The Men's Senate is a governing body vested with legislative, 
executive, and judicial powers. The organization is composed of 
six Seniors, five Juniors, three Sophomores, and one non-voting 
Freshman who are elected to their positions from a list of nominees 
selected by the faculty. From the Senior representatives the mem- 
bers elect the president of the Senate. This year our Senate was 
headed by Gordon Davies, who carried out his duties very com- 
petently and conscientiously. 

This governing body formulates, with faculty approval, rules 
which are necessarv for good conduct among the male students of 
the College. In addition, it is the duty of the Senate to pass judg- 
ment on any infraction of the rules, to punish wrongdoers, and to 
make suggestions for improvement of campus and dormitory life. 

In cooperation with the W. S. G. A., the Senate each year super- 
vises the Football Holiday Dances, which have become quite 
popular on the campus. 

Since the success of a student-governing organization depends 
entirely upon the cooperation of all the students, every male student 
contributes to make our governing body worthwhile and successful.

Women's Student Government 

President . . . Hazel Heminway 
Vice-President . Wanda Price 


Helen Bartlett 
Agnes Morris 

Officially W. S. G. A. stands for Women's Student Government 
Association. The more popular name by which we know it is the 
"Jigger Board" — not a very dignified title, but shorter at any rate 
than the other. The duties of this Board are to make and enforce 
rules for the proper conduct of the "coeds" on the campus. It is 
composed of dormitory girls -with a day-student representative. 
They are first nominated by the Board, approved by the faculty, and 
then elected by the girl students. The Board elects for each of the 
girls' dorms a hall-president, who is particularly responsible for 
dormitory conditions. 

Hazel Heminway, this year's president, has very capably and 
efficiently carried out her duties, and has still retained the friend- 
ship of the culprits. 

Authority to grant various permissions that are within its juris- 
diction also rests with the Board. If any of the Board's rules are 
broken, the Board meets to discuss the case and fixes a penalty, 
usually a "man campus," "campus campus," or in more rare cases a 
"roomus roomus." To the uninitiated these terms may be unintel- 
ligible, but to the guilty offenders they are only too well known. 

The Board is, however, not only a Board of punishments, usually 
for the Freshmen, but in conjunction with its brother organization, 
the Men's Senate, it plans the Christmas festivities, Home Coming 
Day, and May Day.

Our Freshman Class was an up-and-doing crowd; we attacked things 
with unlimited spirit and enthusiasm. It seemed as if I were constantly 
being reported for some minor infraction of the rules and sentenced by the 
terrifying Jigger Board to some cruel and heartless punishment. 

I'll never forget our "kiddie" party. I felt so silly in my short dress, 
romping around playing children's games. And then the meal that topped 
off the party! We ate from soup bowls and used large spoons. 

As I have intimated, there was nothing of the timid soul in my make-up. 
Therefore, when a strike for a football holiday was called, I was the first 
to respond. We picketed the campus and paraded around town. It didn't 
get us anything but cuts; yet it was fun while it lasted. 

The Frosh Frolic, touched by the wand of our usual enthusiasm, was a 
credit to the class. I helped decorate. What a night it was! I think I fell 
in love for the first time then. It was altogether a red-letter year. 

Before I really became accustomed to being a Freshman, I found that I 
was a sophisticated Sophomore with ages of wisdom and knowledge at my 
command. I was almost a fanatical supporter of our now-victorious class. 
I cheered the "tuggers" on to victory on the banks of the Quittie, roared 
my support at our Soph-Frosh football game. Nothing was too much for 
me to do for the class. 

Events of this year passed so rapidly that I cannot even mention all of 
them. But, of course, I must not overlook the highlight of the year — the 
Soph Hop, that nautical dance at which conditions were perfect and I 
was ecstatically happy. 

Days raced by, entangling me in fun, studies, play, and work — and 
suddenly I was a Junior. First of all, I had a "little sister" on my hands 
and had to see that she learned the right and necessary things. This year 
was so busy that I often had a strange nostalgic feeling for my carefree 
Freshman days. 

The Junior Play consumed much of my time for a while. It was "Alison's 
House," by Susan Glaspell; even though I was in the cast, I can honestly 
say that it was beautifully done. I learned to know what being busy was 
when I began to work on the Quittie. I've heard unkind remarks about my 
help, but I certainly did work; and the result was a really fine Quittie of 
which we were justly proud, especially since it came out on May Day. 

The climax of the year was, without doubt, the Junior Prom. Its charm 
lay partly in the setting — the Hershey Park Ballroom — and partly in the 
orchestra — Paul Tremaine's — but mostly in the general gaiety and good- 
fellowship exhibited by everyone. It was a night I would gladly live again. 

The same round of activities kept me tied down very much as a Senior, 
and the novelty had become worn rather thin. When I began to make plans 
for Commencement, it was a pleasure. I think the caps and gowns look so 
smart. The Senior Ball will, undoubtedly, be the big event of the year, since 
it is to be exclusive; that always makes things more interesting. 

When the final day comes and I shall have been graduated from Lebanon 
Valley College, I will always think of my Alma Mater with many pleasant 
memories and will be eager to return to visit the scene of four such happy

I am the voice of the Junior Class, claiming my right to speak in this 
publication, an achievement of our class. Heed my voice while I recall the 
events that chiefly concerned us. 

It is fall of the year 1935. We are all strangers and explorers into the 
mysteries of college life. We begin the task of getting acquainted and find- 
ing our places in the scheme of things. Because of the absence of Frosh rules, 
an experiment being tried this year, we have no hindrance to getting ac- 
quainted; dating begins with a zest. Somehow we are not a group-conscious 
body and do not work well together. Perhaps it is because we are so talented 
individually or because we did not suffer hazing as a group and therefore 
failed collectively to acquire loyalty and responsibility instinctively. What- 
ever the cause, we must admit that we were not outstanding in our contests. 
We lost rather consistently, but at least we did it gracefully and like 

During that first year we learn how to study in a different atmosphere; 
we discover that we are not the lords of creation; we realize the joys of 
campus society, and meditate on why we are here, and what is the goal 
we aim to reach. 

Swiftly the days unroll with a brief, lingering sweetness. Then dawns 
the brighter sun of our Sophomore year. With it comes a new feeling toward 
the college. This year we really belong. We have our own particulat friends 
and duties, and are at home in our work. Briefly we relate summer ex- 
periences and soon get back into the groove. Classes, sports, clubs, plays, 
and dances captivate our minds. The opening "Y" reception, the Poverty 
party, Clio, the Soph Hop, the gay Christmas festivities, Delphian, Eclectic 
dance, the Frosh Frolic, Kalo, Philo, May Day, and the Junior Prom rush 
by in a pleasant whirl of good times. We are responsible for one of the 
events, the Pirate dance or Soph Hop. It was a grand success — except 
financially — with home talent appearing in a floor show. Remember the 
old-time tragedy with the hero, heroine, and the villain? And the terrible 
anguish lest the hero appear too late? 

It was a busy year, but we had fun. We were not yet too busy to give 
ourselves whole-heartedly to any passing fancy. Gaily the year became only 
a pleasant memory; we dismantled our rooms for the summer and said 
good-bye until fall. 

Back again full of zest for another year of fun and sober work. We are 
now Juniors with three important responsibilities — the play, the Quittie, 
and the Prom. These three are our special projects. 

The play, "The Women Have Their Way," is a novelty for the Lebanon 
Valley stage. It is a Spanish play and features, between acts, a lively Spanish 
orchestra. Work on the Quittie is still too near us to be viewed objectively; 
but we feel confident that, in spite of all the delays, the yearbook is one of 
which the class need not be ashamed. From all reports the Diplomats are 
a very good orchestra, and we feel that the Prom, still in the future, will 
climax our year of good times. 

In conclusion, I give you the Junior Class of '39! Our own class looks 
forward to greater pleasures and accomplishments in its last year on the 
Lebanon Valley campus.

"Muzzy" is a sincere and serious student, although he apparently can 
still find time to be warmly human. Perhaps, in the search for truth, which 
he indefatigably pursues in the laboratories of the Science Department, he 
has quietly discovered the science of living, which is, after all, something 
more of an art.

Another equally serious student of the sciences is Howard Baier, 
who, in between shifts at the restaurant in Palmyra where he is working 
his way through school, finds time somehow to become an honor student. 
If he has a fault, it is his almost religious zeal in the pursuit of knowledge. 
But surely the severest censure one could make on that account has the 
sound of praise.

We regard Helen as a No. 1 athlete. Her hockey playing gives an excel- 
lent cross-section of her entire personality — a good sport, a willing and effi- 
cient worker, a person who can be calm during exciting moments, and a 
girl who aims at her goal and hits it. But not for one minute would she 
fail to help anyone else to do as well or better, for with Helen others come 
before self.

Lest we seem to turn out none but scientific men, we introduce here a 
few words about "Beamie," who is what some of our tough friends back 
home call a "fight guy." By that we mean to say he stacks up entirely 
square. This is a rare thing, but not so rare as his unswerving devotion to 
his ideals, which are high and have already cost him no little trouble in 
his efforts to get through college and become a minister. 


History Pbilokosmian 

College: Band, 1, 2; Chorus, 3; L. W. R., 1, 2, 3. 

Herbert, the son of a minister and the elder of the Bowers Brothers, 
plans to follow in his father's footsteps. In the pursuance of his career he 
has come face to face with a necessary evil — Greek. Although the "Ana- 
basis" has caused him some worry, we have heard recently that he and 
Xenophon have made a truce. He is always neatly dressed and inevitably 
greets one with a broad, pleasant smile characteristic of his kind, warm

Her countenance is fair and her voice is soft, which is, as Dr. Johnson 
says, "an excellent thing in woman." Although quiet and unobtrusive, 
"Jerry" is by no means unworthy the attention her unassuming demeanor 
prevents her from attracting.

An eccentric chap with a flair, not to say a talent, for practical prankery. 
Charlie has done a little investigation of almost all available branches of 
knowledge with most unusual results, for, far from being a dilettante, his 
information is thorough and certain. And so, perhaps, it is not irrelevant to 
add that he plays, among other things, the xylophone. 


Business Administration Philokosmian 

College: Football, 1, 2, 3, Captain Elect, '38; Basketball, 2, 3; Baseball, 2; Men's

Known to students and townsmen alike as "Brownie," this important 
member of the football team has, by virtue of his athletic prowess and his 
never-failing and ever-voluble good humor, achieved a popular recognition 
that is accorded to few students. 

STANLEY BULOTA New Ringgold, Pa. 

College: "L" Club, 1, 2, Sec.-Treas., 3; Men's Senate, 3. 

"Bull," commonly conceded to be the strongest man on the campus, is 
naturally an athlete. He has achieved some distinction beyond that which 
rightfully belongs to members of the varsity squads, however, partly on 
account of his traditionally noble lineage. The Russian Revolution abol- 
ished anv emoluments he might have derived from his Muscovite estates, 
but he nevertheless enjoys a certain distinction in the name his friends have 
given him, which is "Count Veronsky."

Bill Clark's is "a high, dark spirit," of whom somehow or other great 
talents seem to be expected, although he seldom bothers to give any tangible 
proof of their existence. He never seems to notice that his suits need press- 
ing, and wears his hair long because he is firmly convinced that all barbers 
are idiots. 


Music Education 

College: Y. M. C A., Cabinet, 2, 3; College Band, 1, 2, 3; College Glee Club, 
L 2, 3. 

Bob is a prominent member of the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, which is as it 
should be, for his is a life that follows the hard and narrow path where 
rectitude and duty lie. Perhaps that explains why he is an acknowledged 
master of that most difficult instrument, the pipe-organ. 

LOUIS J. CONRAD Harrisburg, Pa. 

Chemistry Kalozetean 

College: Chemistry Club, 3. Society: Sec, 2; Minstrels, 2. 

Another science student, Louis differs from many of his ilk in having 
some interest in affairs which are not directly concerned with the imposing 
admixture of subjects which form the basis of his studies.

There are students and honor students, but few of either class are able 
to maintain a standard so consistently high in matters academic with so 
little apparent effort. If one were to infer from this remark that the chap 
under discussion lives as well as works, he would do so rightly. 

ELWOOD LE ROY DERR Harrisburg, Pa. 


College: Chemistry Club, 1, 3- 

Life holds many surprises for one who does not prefer to be a bystander 
at its procession. Hence, one may say that the reason "Woodie" Derr en- 
joys it is that he has never allowed his curiosity to become either sullied 
or sated, though he exercises it continually in pursuit of that elusive knowl- 
edge which lurks in chemical test-tubes.

It is not difficult in a few words to catch the character of Margaret Druck, 
for she is not given to those flamboyant mannerisms which inevitably 
attract the attention of the beholder at the same time that they repel it. In 
her living she exemplifies a rare piety, and, in learning, an industry which 
many less-vigorous students vainly might wish to emulate.

"Engle," as he is known to his associates, is the agreeable sort of man

and with such an air of ease that he might be said to be going some place

"Smitty" is at heart a joiner. For all-round sociability and general 
good-will, the college has seldom turned out his equal. Although he has 
had a tough struggle of it to stay with the game, and sometimes seems yet 
to be going down for the count, he always comes up grinning. We are in 
favor of him.

Besides that, however, he has the greater accomplishment of being a warm

The things one notices first about Strayer are an agreeable friendliness 
and his very quick sense of humor, which has a slightly sardonic twist. 
But when one gets to know him better, it becomes obvious that these are 
but the cloak of the real Strayer, whose interest wavers among a number of 
things which are considered the proper considerations of the genteel.

Warren is that red-haired, fiery-tempered ministerial student from 
Lebanon. Spending many hours in the day-students' room he has unusual 
opportunity to develop his powers of argumentation. Wherever one enters 
upon a group of day-students engaging in an argument, Strickler is usually 
there. Opposition to any of his religious or political views will always 
bring an immediate response from him. More power to him ! Furthermore, 
Warren is a fine fellow and a student.

Marianne lived abroad for a considerable number of years and speaks 
German as fluently as English — or at least so it sounds to our un-Teutonic 
ears. In the German Club play, "Einer muss heiraten," she was described 
thus: "Sie ist wirklich bezaubernd." Even if you don't read German, it 
is unnecessary to tell you what this means if you ever saw her. In addition 
to all this she is an accomplished manipulator of the bull-fiddle and a kind, 
human, and likeable person.

TUp SfClfiF of fllP There is more work involved in the production of a yearbook than is gener- 

tllC ally recognized. In fact, there is so much work to be done that any one indi- 
vidual, such as the Editor-in-Chief, should not be expected to do all of it 
alone. Even a super-man would be unable to cope with the time limits which 
are necessarily imposed upon the publication of a college annual; an average 
undergraduate — or even one with capabilities that are above the average — 
would be doomed from the very beginning to failure. 

Realizing the necessity for cooperation in making successful this venture 
of the Class of 1939, the members of the staff have been loyal and industrious 
in the discharge of their duties. Whatever may be the reaction of the reader 
to this annual, he should applaud or condemn the staff collectively. If there 
be acclaim, the staff will share it together; if there be blame, the staff will 
bear it together.

La Vie depicts just what its name implies — "college life" as seen through 
the eyes of the several student representatives who bring out the publication 
each week. Its scope omits nothing of interest that takes place on the campus; 
in fact, it is not even limited to local activities, but follows Lebanon Valley 
interests everywhere. Aside from its primary aim, it also provides an excellent 
opportunity for a thorough journalistic experience for those planning to enter 
any kind of literary profession. 

This year's staff has contributed much to the development of a high standard 
of campus journalism. Many innovations will remain permanent parts of the 
policy of Lebanon Valley College's weekly. Those who carry on this important 
work in the future may well profit by the example of Boyd Shaffer and his 
faithful co-workers.

This club, although a comparatively new organization on the campus, has 
firmly established itself as one of the few exclusive clubs. It is the desire of 
this organization to stimulate writing activity and to improve creative and 
individual thinking in the field of journalism. Of its sixteen members, there 
are two men and two women representatives from each class. To obtain mem- 
bership one must secure the approval of a manuscript which has been sub- 
mitted to be read and judged by the club. 

The club holds its meetings every third Thursday in the month at the home 
of Dr. and Mrs. Struble, when various members present a piece of original 
writing in the form of a short story, biography, character sketch, or any other 
representative of the varied branches of writing. Each author reads his own 
work before the group, to have it constructively criticized by the other mem- 
bers of the club. Occasionally guest speakers contribute to the interest of these 
meetings that do much to stimulate and develop interest in writing of an 
original nature.

T")f fvifPF^ Debating on the L. V. C. campus has attained a high place; because it tends 

JVcUalLlS to d eve i p ; n tne individual the invaluable art of public speaking, it promises 
to retain this place as an instrument of social and intellectual benefit. 

The girls' team, coached by Dr. Black and Dr. Stokes, was composed of 
Hazel Heminway and Louise Saylor, affirmative, and Elizabeth Bender and 
Jane Ehrhart, negative. Ella Mason was the manager, with Helen Bartlett as 
assistant. Their schedule included debates with Ursinus, Gettysburg, Juniata, 
Cedar Crest, Penn State, and Bucknell. 

The men's team was coached by Dr. Stevenson and managed by Calvin 
Spitler, with Raymond Smith assisting. The affirmative speakers were Clifford 
Barnhart, Carl Ehrhart, and Calvin Spitler; the negative, Raymond Smith, 
Marlin Espenshade, and Curvin Dellinger. Several interesting tours included 
debates with Western Maryland, Washington, Dickinson, Lincoln Catholic 
of New York, Wagner, Gettysburg, and Elizabethtown Colleges. 

The question debated by both groups was : Resolved, That the National Labor 
Relations Board be empowered to enforce arbitration of all industrial disputes. 

Relations Club 

President Joseph Thomas 

Vice-President Jack Moller 

Secretary Helen Bartlett 

Here is a club for those who are interested in foreign affairs and wish to 
broaden their knowledge of world politics. It meets regularly at the home of 
Dr. Stevenson, where lively discussions follow a chosen person's report on a 
topic of general interest. Usually these people are club members; occasionally 
they are guests. To keep its members informed concerning what is happening 
in the world, the club, a branch of the International Relations Club, receives 
books covering vital matters. Some of the members also belong to the Foreign 
Policy Association and this spring attended a Philadelphia meeting for the 
study of Latin America. In the spring the club brings its meeting to a happy 
conclusion by holding a supper hike. 

Since its discussions are always concerning up-to-the-minute problems, a 
solution for which its members are genuinely interested in searching, the 
I. R. C. is perhaps the most vital club on the campus. 

Life Work Recruits 

President Lloyd Beamesderfer 

Vice-President Thomas Guinivan 

Secretary-Treasurer Ethel Houtz 

Chairman of Deputations Paul Horn 

A group of students who are interested in active participation in religious 
affairs and who plan, as ministers, missionaries, or directors of church work 
in general, to make them their life work, the Life Work Recruits have regular 
meetings with a speaker and open-forum discussions. They regularly send 
deputations to neighboring churches. The students then plan and have entire 
charge of the service, with Conservatory students contributing the musical 

Although these services are helpful to the churches, they are more beneficial 
to the students because they provide practical experience in their chosen field. 
Dr. and Mrs. Richie and the Rev. ana Mrs. Wilt are the group's advisers, who 
guide and direct their activities. The Life Work Recruits exercise an important 
spiritual influence on the campus and acquire excellent training for future 
church leadership.

placed his stage knowledge and experience at the Club's disposal. Directoral 

duties have recently fallen to Dr. George Struble, Associate Professor of English, 

who quite capably maintains the high standards of the organization. 

The present membership of seventy-three persons consists of fifty-five club 
members who have been accepted into the Club; eleven general members who 
have taken an important role in a production or assisted technically; and 
seven letter or full-fledged members who have consistently done outstanding 
work in acting or staging. 

The unanimous support given the Club by the student body, together with 
the indispensable part which it plays on the campus, assures it a prominent 
place among extra-curricular activities. 

Der Deutsche 

President Calvin Spitler 

Vice-President Robert W. Long 

Secretary-Treasurer Theresa Stefan 

The German Club, ever since its founding in 1930, has progressed with 
surges of enthusiasm inspired largely by the ardor of its organizer and adviser, 
Dr. Lena L. Lietzau. It is she who, with the cooperation and support of the 
Club officers, plans the semi-monthly meetings always so diversified and char- 
acteristic of the contagious zeal and tonic of the Germanic spirit running 
through them. 

Activity this year was concentrated in the realization of a dream which 
the Club has cherished since the beginning — that of presenting a play entirely 
in German. The Club's best dramatic talent was called into play, while the 
directing was ably handled by a former member and alumnus, Robert Spohn. 
The finished product, Einer muss heiraten, met with such success that it was 
called to appear on other campuses as well. 

Great achievements are expected of the versatile German Club in the years 
to come.

To set a specific date for the initial organization of this Club would be

discontinued, only to be revived in a few years with renewed eagerness and 
increased membership. 

Presentations by various members at the Club's meetings are usually con- 
cerned with unusual or little-known biological facts, which often prove to be 
startling revelations running contrary to popular belief. 

Especially entertaining are the meetings at which former Club members, 
who have entered the medical profession, are present. Accounts from their 
wider experience never fail to cause reluctance to adjourn; they usually continue 
far into the evening. 

No matter whether the program is a field trip, motion picture, or lecture, 
it is always as educational as interesting. The Biology Club is an asset to its 
progressive department and promises to reach, in its evolution, a high level 
of extra-curricular life.

Chemistry Club 

President Henry Schott 

Vice-President John Groff 

Secretary-Treasurer Richard Moody 

The Chemistry Club, organized in 1932 by Dr. Bender, was revived this 
year by a group of students interested in new discoveries and theories in the 
chemical world of today. Its purpose is not only to turn attention to recent 
developments in the field of chemistry, but also to encourage students to adopt 
the scientific method of work and thought. 

Movies of standardized industrial processes are shown, investigations into 
historical chemistry are conducted, and occasionally a trip is made to a mine 
or factory where members of this club may see chemical knowledge in action. 

In preparation for the meetings, several members are assigned topics to be 
discussed, which they thoroughly investigate. After each report the floor is 
open for questions. Thus many lively and spirited discussions are carried on. 

Dr. Bender, the adviser of the club, is a constant contributor of valuable 
information, his expert knowledge and his enthusiasm for an active organi- 
zation making the professor a valued guide in the lives of the Chemistry Club 

Commerce Club 

President John Gongloff 

Secretary-Treasurer J OHN Moller 

Business Administration students who were particularly concerned with 
practical business experience organized this club in 1930 under the able leader- 
ship of Dr. Milton L. Stokes. Its appeal is not limited to the business depart- 
ment alone, and any student who is interested is eligible for membership. 

The increasingly large enrollment of this club is due mainly to the interest- 
ing programs presented at its meetings. Informal discussions of modern eco- 
nomic trends characterize the majority of these assemblies, although govern- 
ment business men from outside sources are often called in to present their 
views on present business activities. 

Comments from graduates who have been members of the club during their 
college careers testify to the worth and value of this organization in fitting 
the business student for his life's work. Its high standards of achievement 
assure it a permanent place on Lebanon Valley's rostrum of extra-curricular 

The String Trio 

These three, consisting of a proficient pianist, Dorothy Yeakel; an excel- 
lent violinist, John Zettlemoyer; and a versatile 'cellist, Dorothy Zeiters, 
compose the Lebanon Valley College String Trio so much in demand for any- 
thing from chapel programs to club banquets. Certainly no other group has 
done so much fine work to make the Conservatory popular. 

These three work together very well and have developed with their con- 
tinuous practice, under the direction of Professor Carmean, an unusually large 
repertoire of light opera, classical, and popular music. Their excellent musical 
ability produces a gaiety of spirit which exceeds that usually created by such 
small groups formed on the campus. 


College Organizations 


College Orchestra 

Because of the wish expressed by many of the College and Conservatory stu- 
dents for more light opera and semi-classical music, Professor Carmean has under- 
taken to provide a pleasant fifty minutes a week by directing the College 
Orchestra in playing for public presentation, as well as for their own enjoy- 
ment, the effervescent melodies of Victor Herbert and other composers of the 
light-opera vein. The Orchestra also does accompanying work, such as the 
clarinet and flute arrangement of "Lo, Hear the Gentle Lark," and has done much 
in the way of testing new graded material for high-school orchestras. The 
ensembles which furnish dinner music for our banquets and thus perform a 
valuable service to the social life on the campus are also provided by the 
Orchestra. It is in a cooperative spirit that this group meets each week for 
the pleasure derived from playing their particular preferences in music. 

The Symphony 

"You know there is one thing that keeps a director from being discouraged 
by small instrumentation; that is the spirit and the energy which they put 
into their music. Sometimes I think that a little group does better with its 
small size and great spirit than a larger one would." According to Professor 
Rutledge, our little symphony exemplifies quality, not quantity. They do 
enjoy playing, and, like the Glee Club, do their best at all times. Versatile 
also as an accompanying group, they expect to play the Schumann piano con- 
certo at their Spring Concert. 

This unit, while containing the instrumentalists who strive for the best 
in the realm of symphonic literature, is not averse to trying the new and un- 
known. Any composition of any member of this and other organizations can 
find here a group who like strange nuances and ultra-altered chords, as well 
as the beautiful and simple works of the classic composers. 

With the advent of the open reception given to symphonic music by the 
people, we may expect an increased interest in this organization as well as in 
the many ensemble groups formed from it. May it grow and retain the respect 
which it already receives on our campus. 

L. V. C. Band 

Hail this fine group which has indeed popularity and prestige unbounded! 
At once expert musicians and general "pepper-uppers," they give any event 
that certain lift. They are supreme as a marching band, as evidenced by com- 
parisons made with others at recent football and basketball games. They don't 
bring home the bacon; they sell it to a satisfied gang of rooters. 

As for being able to fill the bill at a moment's notice, we recommend as an 
example last year's first rainy May Day afternoon. What group can give in a 
moment's notice an impromptu concert of such calibre? Only one with a lot 
of dexterity, an outstanding director, and a colossal, well-organized repertoire. 

These boys — and a few well-favored girls, they say — are certainly something 
for which a football team will clamor, a student body will cheer, and a faculty 
will heartily applaud. 

When they stride down the field in their natty blue and white uniforms, 
we can proudly say, "There goes the spirit of L. V. C, victorious in any game, 
regardless of the score." 



f-rif"1s' PtanH Down on the front stands, at one of our recent fall pigskin contests, a 

country cousin of ours looked over his spectacles, pulled his beard, and twirled 
his toothpick, saying, "B' gorry, they kin play, too." So they kin, and kin 
they march! Here L. V. C. so far outclasses most colleges and universities that 
we need only mention our Girls' Band intercollegiate stag-and-doe sessions to 
have a point immediately stacked up for the Alma Mater. By almost incessant 
practice, these lasses achieved results rarely attained by a group of feminine 
artists. They do what a great deal of university men's bands hesitate to do — 
appear in marching contests and win them, too. 

The appearances of the Girls' Band in chapel are warmly received and are 
anxiously awaited. Despite their annually changing personnel they consist- 
ently develop into a polished unit. 

There is a spirit of unusual cooperation in the way the girls manage food 
sales and dances in order to provide for the financial needs of the organization. 
The interest in this group shown by the student body is truly deserved by the 
Band which is striving to become larger and more important every year. 

Many years hence these young ladies will be heard speaking with pride 
that they belonged to that feminine complement to the boys' organization — 
the L. V. C. Girls' Band. 

Mixed Chorus 

This year the Mixed Chorus took its place with the other organizations of 
the campus in taking part in the annual Music Festival. They gave a premiere 
performance of Lawrence Curry's "Hymn to Art" and the anthem "Come 
Thou Long-Expected Jesus," to the tune of which Robert Clippinger has 
written the words of the well-known Wesley hymn. To climax their excellent 
program, they sang a concertized version of Bizet's "Carmen." The solos 
were taken by Christine Yoder, Mildred Gangwer, and Earl Caton. This 
group sings for the fun of singing, and at the same time develops itself into a 
public performing unit of which L. V. C. can boast. 

From the members of this group are taken those who finally form the Glee 
Club. Surely this is reason enough, owing to the fine opportunity and the 
extremely fair way in which try-outs are given, that all those who possess a 
fairly good singing voice should become members of the Lebanon Valley 
College Mixed Chorus. 

z -1 1 _ _ {""Inl-x "How Eloquent Are Eyes," the magnificent song by John West, expresses 

VHCC VjlUU (.fog thought of most people when they see this group of well-trained musicians 
closely watching their precise and unassuming director as he so dexterously 
cues them into those intriguing harmonies and chords. 

Their worthiness is evidenced by the fact that on the recent spring tour to 
Washington, Baltimore, Hagerstown, and other prominent music centers, they 
gained their place in the musical sun with the Westminster and St. Olaf choirs. 
Invitations too numerous to fill have been sent to them as a result of this very 
successful trip. Ministers, teachers, and musicians alike praise them in their 
ability to interpret those effective sacred masterpieces which they include on 
their programs. We can understand the precedent set by the King since we have 
heard the Glee Club sing the "Hallelujah Chorus" with the intense fervor that 
is necessary for this inspired work. 

Certainly L. V. C. has been raised to a higher status than ever before through 
the efforts of this admirable organization which offers an opportunity to all 
with abilitv to use their vocal talents in a definite and interesting way.

Vice-President Robert Clippinger 

Secretary Paul Horn 

Treasurer Ernest Weirick 

The "Y" is probably the oldest campus organization, dating from 1887; 
it is surely the largest, since it includes all men students. Although its primary 
purpose has always been to promote among the students the Christ-like life, 
the boundaries of its activities have widened to include the annual publication 
of the freshman guide, the "L" Book, and the big-brother movement which 
seeks to make the Freshman feel more at home by putting him under the wing 
of an upperclassman. 

Throughout college this Association is of value to the student. Through 
its cooperation with the Y. W. C. A., it helps the student to extend the bound- 
aries of his social circle and to develop his personality. The "Y" room in the 
men's dorm provides opportunities for reading, physical exercise, and other 
recreation. With such principles and accomplishments to the organization's 
credit, the success and long life of the Y. M. C. A. are certain to continue as 
in the past. 

Y. W. C. A. 

President Lucille Maberry 

Vice-President Helen Bartlett 

Recording Secretary Amy Monteith 

Corresponding Secretary Helen Netherwood 

Treasurer Hazel Heminway 

The Y. W. C. A. is a Christian organization that strives to maintain true 
values of religion on the campus. All women students receive full membership 
when they take the pledge and receive their pins at a very impressive candle- 
light service held at the beginning of the school year. Delegates are sent to 
various seminars at other colleges to meet and discuss problems of common 
interest. A "Friendly Hour" for girls is held on Sunday evenings and a mid- 
week prayer service. Lucille Maberry has been a very successful president and 
has done much to make the "Y" a vital part of campus life. 

The "Y" opens its program with a well-planned Freshman Week. Although 
it participates in many other events, Heart Sister Week and Mother's Day are 
its special projects. Besides joining with the Y. M. C. A. to hold a Hallowe'en 
dance, this year it held an International Bazaar. To maintain a friendly spirit 
on the campus, the Y. W. C. A. stresses social activities as well as those prima- 
rily religious. 

Women's Athletic 

President Dorothy Kreamer 

Vice-President Catherine Mills 

Secretary Mildred Haas 

Treasurer Carolyn Roberts 

This infant association boasts remarkable accomplishments, chiefly through 
the efforts of Miss Henderson, with the capable and willing cooperation of 
Dorothy Kreamer. With a point system of membership and direction by 2 
Cabinet consisting of officers and sports leaders, the Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion reveals the fun and value of sports. Chiefly emphasized are intramural 
sports; still, a number of very interesting trips have been made to Philadelphia 
to learn from all-American stars how hockey should be played. "Play Days" 
are becoming more popular since personal grudges have been eliminated and 
girls play for fun. 

The W. A. A. held a novel Sample Fair at which they distributed everything 
from a cup of hot coffee to yardsticks. Plans for a formal dinner after an initia- 
tion supper hike have been discussed in prospect of a spring formal next year. 
Already the organization has brought renewed interest in sports to Lebanon 
Valley's campus.

Kappa Lambda Sigma, organized in 1877, was the second literary society 
for men on the campus. This socially progressive group has followed the 
modern trend of college societies. With a great deal of eagerness, they strive 
for the promotion of fraternity, companionship, and amicability. Kalo, 
founded as a rival to Philo, takes a very active part in the campus social life. 
This society participates in the opening program of the four societies and has 
joint sessions with both Clionian and Delphian literary societies. Through 
the smoker, plav, and anniversary dinner-dance, the Kalos unmistakably exhibit 
the feeling of "When-good-fellows-get-together." 

The dramatic talents of the Kalozetean and Delphian literary societies this 
year were concentrated in the modernistic production "Rossum's Universal 
Robots," by Karel Capek, which was acclaimed as something to be long 
remembered in Kalo's eventful history. As a climax to the anniversary week- 
end, the Kalos and their ladies dined and danced in the traditional way in the 
Hotel Hershey's spacious Spanish Room. Kalo's aim is to grow more prominent 
during the years ahead in literary, dramatic, and social circles on the campus.

Clionian Literary Society, established sixty-seven years ago, is the older 
of the girls' societies and bears a misleading name. It has outgrown its original 
purpose and now has a purely social function. Preserving the ancient tradition 
of Minerva as its patron goddess, it still retains the owl as the symbol of wisdom 
and the olive branch of unchallenged victory. 

Meetings are held in a room in North Hall that has just been repapered and 
refurnished. The culmination of the various events such as a fall hike, a tea 
for new members, interesting meetings and joint sessions, is reached with the 
anniversary dance. For the last two years this has been held at the charming 
Hershey Hotel. In the spring Clio joins with Philo to present a play, which 
this year was "Three-Cornered Moon." Through its manifold activity, Clio 
accomplishes the society's purpose by enriching members' social life

Delphian is the youngest literary society on the campus, sixteen years ago 
organized as a literary club, but its original purpose since altered to become in 
nature purely social. 

The society has an assembly-room on the first floor of South Hall the use 
of which it generously extends to the American Association of University 
Women, debating groups, and other organizations. In the spring even a lively 
ping-pong tournament was there conducted. 

For its own members Delphian frequently holds "open house," with boys 
as invited guests. It has a well-planned program of hikes, teas, and meetings. 
Delphian's social opportunities are climaxed by an anniversary dance, this 
year held at the Harrisburg Civic Club. A number of alumni attend, and the 
event usually proves to be a truly gala occasion. Each spring the society joins 
with Kalo to present a play; this year "Rossum's Universal Robots" was 
produced. Thus Delphian creates a friendly atmosphere with its membership 
of girls who desire a well-developed social life.

smokers for Freshmen true comradeship has been nurtured.

The membership of the Athletic Council is composed of eight men, 
including four faculty members — Professor C. R. Gingrich, Dr. M. L. 
Stokes, Dr. E. H. Stevenson, and Dr. R. R. Butterwick. The Department 
of Athletics is ably represented by Coach Jerome W. Frock and Coach 
Emerson Metoxen. The college president, Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, and one 
alumnus, Mr. C. G. Dotter, complete the group. 

The purpose of this efficient organization is to approve all programs and 
to determine all policies. Under the fatherly guidance of these eight learned 
men, Lebanon Valley athletics keeps ever progressing towards better and 
higher goals. By founding such an organization, the administration has 
been relieved of the burden of problems that develop in connection with 
athletics; the Council has fully proved its capability to handle these prob- 
lems efficiently and has made itself indispensable. 

More credit is deserved than is generally given to these men for their 
handling of Lebanon Valley's problems. They played a big part in the 
making and supporting of the Dutchmen. Through their supervision, the 
coaches were quite confident they could turn out good teams. 

Although the football season was not so good as some in the past, the 
team had a good average; the basketball season far surpassed many Lebanon 
Valley records. Even greater achievements may be expected in the future, 
and Lebanon Valley rooters can feel quite confident that all of them will be 
interesting and representative of the high standards of sportsmanship which 
are promoted by the Athletic Council. 

i 92 ], 



In September of 1934, the present head of Leba- 
non Valley's Athletic Department, Coach "Jerry" 
Frock, came to the campus to succeed "Hooks" 
Mylin, who is now coaching at Lafayette. Coach 
Frock formerly was a loyal student of Lebanon 
Valley and was graduated in the Class of 1925- 
After graduating he served as line coach for several 
years at John Harris High School in Harrisburg. 
A success at John Harris, he came to Annville to 
set up a record of sixteen victories, seventeen de- 
feats, and one tie in his four years of service. His 
teams usually up to par, Frock trained several men 
that could easily represent the country in foot- 
ball. Also coaching Freshman basketball, Coach 
Frock is regarded by the students as a true friend. 


Another graduate of L. V., Coach Emerson 
Metoxen, better known as "Chief," also returned 
to the old stamping-grounds to turn out good 
teams and good men. Metoxen graduated in 1927 
and began his coaching career at Glen Nor High 
School and York Collegiate Institute. 

"Chiefie" has trained many good men during his 
years of experience. Even when his teams did not 
compare favorably with others, he always man- 
aged to have one or two men that rated among the 
best in the country. 

In 1938, "Chief" surprised L. V. fans and turned 
out an ace basketball quintet. He also has done a 
good job in baseball by turning out teams that 
ably represent the school.

BUCKNELL vs. L. V. C. 

Oct. 1, 1937 

The Flying Dutchmen opened their season with a 13-0 defeat at the hands 
of the Bisons of Bucknell. The experienced players pulled every type of 
play they knew; but, having such a small range of plays at this time in the 
season, they were forced to rely on straight-line tricks and use of fast end 
runs. Although the Dutchmen mustered a valiant fighting spirit, they 
could not form a sufficiently strong defense to halt the Bison onslaught. 

The game was not a total loss, however, since many of the Freshmen 
players received some experience at the hands of the Bisons which proved 
of value later in the season. 

Score: 14-0 MUHLENBERG vs. L. V. C. 

Oct. 9, 1937 

With a strong supporting section from the student body in the bleachers, 
the Dutchmen ventured upon the Muhlenberg gridiron with some hope of 
evening their initial defeat at Lewisburg. The game began with the Mules and 
the Dutchmen running each other up and down the field. Finally the strain 
of this procedure became too great for L. V., and they allowed themselves to 
be kicked by the Mules to the tune of 14-0. Neither defense was strong, 
while both offenses were very powerful. Numerous fumbles dominated the 
game, offering many opportunities; however, no fumbles were the cause of 
a touchdown. The first touchdown was a result of Kress's blocked kick; 
the second, an end run. 



Score: 7-23 DELAWARE UNIVERSITY vs. L. V. C. Oct. 16, 1937 

The local team hit the Delaware gridiron more determined than ever to 
rack up a win. Therefore, as soon as the whistle blew, they hit their stride 
and hit it hard. With the aid of the Rozman magic toe and a super-charged 
support from the rest of the crowd, L. V. scored the first victory of the season 
to the surprise of everyone. Rozman was not the only highlight of the game. 
Kress also scored a 6-pointer, while Davies and his wall of colleagues did an 
excellent job in allowing Rozman ample time to boot the ball between the 
uprights. This game gave the whole campus a more optimistic view of the 
Dutchmen's chances for the season. 

Score: 7-0 ST. JOSEPH'S vs. L. V. C. Oct. 23, 1937 

The team went to Philadelphia with a reasonable expectation of victory, 
but the jinx of bad breaks and numerous injuries haunted them so persistently 
that once again they had to face disappointment. 

The general trend of thought concerning the matter was that the team had 
the necessary goods, but, for some reason, didn't seem to be able to click. For 
that reason, the fact that they had been breaking up along about the 20-yard 
line, the team devised a new attack. They started using a steady drive up to 
that point and then calling on Rozman. This type of attack was good but 
unreliable in wet weather due to a water-logged ball.

Before the stands packed with Homecoming Day visitors, the Dutchmen 
handed P. M. C. a close defeat. The ball was kicked all over the field, danger- 
ously close to both goal-posts on various occasions. Lebanon Valley had the 
ball in scoring territory many more times than their opponents; however, bad 
handling of the ball and the wrong breaks stopped them every time. One time 
Dave Rosen cracked off tackle to take the ball to the goal-line; P. M. C. cracked 
back at that point, forcing him to fumble behind the goal-line, and the ball 
came out to the 20-yard line. But when the smoke of battle had cleared, the 
home team pulled out with a 3-0 victory.

UPSALA vs. L. V. C. 

Nov. 6, 1937 

Followed by a strong supporting section confident of a win, the team went 
to East Orange, N. J. The game had its ups and downs all the way through, 
with neither team gaining the advantage. When it was almost time for the 
final whistle, the score was still 0-0, and fans were preparing to go home, once 
more disappointed, when suddenly Rozman, having dropped back for a field- 
goal, booted the ball over the uprights with his educated toe. Almost before 
the score-keeper had time to hang up a "3" under L. V. O, the finish-gun 
cracked, amid cheers and salvoes of applause from the stands.

L. V. C. 

Nov. 13, 1937 

In this, the game of the season, the dope sheets have it that the Dutchmen 
went down to a 16-0 loss, thanks mostly to a muddy field. The popular idea 
was that the locals might have won on a dry field, but didn't stand a chance 
in the muck because they weren't used to playing that way. Rozman found 
himself unable to kick a water-soaked ball, and Kress discovered it was im- 
possible to pass it. For these reasons line-plays decided the game, and Albright, 
having a stronger and faster charging line, emerged from the slime victorious. 

Score: 0-16 

JUNIATA vs. L. V. C. 

Nov. 20, 1937 

The Flying Dutchmen ended the season in a victory of 16-0 over Juniata, 
which brought their average for the year up to 500. 

Chris Walk gave rooters a considerable surprise, and simultaneously revealed 
his possibilities as a back for next year's team, when he pulled a side-step, 
stiff-arm twirling maneuver, followed by a reverse through Juniata until he was 
finally downed a considerable distance from where he started. However, his was 
not the only outstanding play of the game, for most of the team were perform- 
ing in top shape; for instance, Captain Davies, who had quietly been playing 
a competent game all year without showing off, stepped into the limelight. 

Scoring seemed to take place almost automatically; and, once the game was 
over, the team joyfully abandoned their armor, thinking no doubt of the 
possibilities for next year.

Five minutes after the initial toss-up, L. V. set a terrific pace that had

passing that held the crowd bewildered was the keynote of the fast-breaking

Jan. 12, 1938 

The Bullets surprised the Yalleyites with a slow but effective offense and an 
air-tight defense. The Dutchmen, somewhat inexperienced with such methods, 
were unable to cope with the situation; the result was their first defeat. 

Weems and O'neall led the attack for the Bullets, and their sinking of long 
shots from any angle completely broke up L. V.'s defense. 

Score: 31-40 DREXEL vs. L. V. C. Jan. 15, 1938 

The Triumvirate of Artz, Billet, and Frey was the main scoring threat, 
being supported by Rozman and Kress. 

L. V. took an early lead, and the score at half-time favored the Dutchmen 
22-10. Drexel's only challenge came about the middle of the last half, but the 
Valleyites put on a final spurt to win by a margin of 9 points.

URSINUS vs. L. V. C. 

Feb. 1, 1938 

The Valleyites' floor-action was far superior to that of the Ursinus five, but 
the accuracy of Keene could not be disputed for he sank them from the most 
peculiar angles. 

Lebanon Valley constantly set the pace, led by Ralph Billet who tallied 
16 points. The game was a moral victory for Valley and should be put down 
in the records as their only undeserved defeat of the season. 

Score: 42-46 


Feb. 3, 1938 

Excitement ran high throughout the entire game. "Doggie" Julian's men 
carried the battle the first half and led at the half-way 29-24. 

Returning to the floor with new stamina, Lebanon Valley tallied in rapid 
succession to take the lead 34-29. 

With the score in the closing minutes 42-41 in favor of the Mules, Chief 
Metoxen used some excellent strategy and substituted "Bob" Artz. Artz 
immediately tallied two field-goals and a foul shot to end the game 42-46. 

Score: 55-69 


Feb. 5, 1938 

Although L. V. C. trailed at the half by 2 points, they returned to the court 
with new fire, ignited again by the triumvirate of Captain Billet, Artz, and 
Frey, to down the scrappy Red Devils. 

Valley was closely pursued by the Reds and led by barely four points with 
four minutes to go. The tide turned definitely after a time out and another 
victory graced the books.

ALBRIGHT vs. L. V. C. 

Feb. 9, 1938 

Frey again led the attack for the Dutchmen with a total of 18 points. This 
game was played on the Hershey Sports Arena floor which added to the home- 
sters' victory. A fast-breaking offense put the Valleyites out in front. 

Albright threatened once in the second stanza, only to be left behind in the 
final minutes by a sizeable margin. This game definitely proved the value of 
Valley's offensive style, peculiarly adapted to a large floor. 

Score: 38-61 

URSINUS vs. L. V. C. 

Feb. 12, 1938 

The fact that a previous defeat at the hands of the Bears spoiled their record 
seemed to prove a spark for the high-scoring Raymie Frey, who racked up a 
total of 34 points to break the league record. He attempted only 38 shots and 
scored 34 points, an approximate percentage of 500. 

It may be added that the team displayed excellent floor-work and the entire 
quintet showed a super-performance of passing and handling the ball. 

Score: 48-63 FRANKLIN & MARSHALL vs. L. V. C. Feb. 17, 1938 

The Valleyites held the lead throughout the game, being supported by the 
scrappy Artz, who tallied 12 points, and Raymie Frey, who racked up 28 points. 

At the close of the second half the Dutchmen clicked to leave the Diplomats 
far behind. A surprise attack was launched earlier in this stanza by F. & M., 
but the effort was in vain.

L. V. C. 

Feb. 19, 1938 

Although the Dragons fought hard, they could not stop the little whirl- 
wind, Bobby Artz, who tallied on nine field-goals and two fouls for a total 
of 20 points. The old triumvirate of Billet, Frey, and Artz showed good form 
in racking up six successive baskets. 

This victory, plus the defeat of Gettysburg by Albright, placed the Metoxen- 
men in the Eastern Pennsylvania League lead for the first time in many years. 

Score: 39-25 


Feb. 23, 1938 

For the second time in the season, the Gettysburg Bullets dropped the 
Valleyites back to second place. They displayed an air-tight defense that broke 
up the Dutchman's fast-breaking offense. 

The score was 24-11 at half-time, favoring the Bullets. The G-burgers 
returned to the court stronger than ever, while the second-half rally which 
was expected of the Valleyites failed to materialize. 

Score: 61-64 


Feb. 26, 1938 

This was perhaps the most exciting game of the season and kept the crowd 
constantly in high spirits, for it was indeed a demonstration of real Basketball. 
The Valleyites came off to a good start and held the lead until near the end of 
the fracas. Then the Mules seized the lead by one point, and in true Artz style, 
Bobby again came through to score two field-goals as the game ended.

ALBRIGHT vs. L. V. C. 

March 5, 1938 

Taking the lead early in the game, Lebanon Valley was never headed for 
the remainder of the fracas. This was another exhibition of consistent ball- 
playing, displaying good technique in shooting and handling the ball. 

In this game Frey scored 16 points, making his season league total 190 and 
breaking the league record of 172, which was achieved by Cal Heller, formerly 
of Lebanon Valley. 

Now that the league season had been completed, L. V. looked forward to 
their rival tilt with Bucknell. 

Score: 78-55 

BUCKNELL vs. L. V. C. 

March 9, 1938 

The final game of a successful season came to a rather unhappy climax, for 
the Bisons could not be stopped in this, their last game on the old gym floor. 
This was an upset in which the homesters showed magnificent form and were 
truly deserving of a victory. 

In spite of the defeat in their final game, Lebanon Valley completed one 
of the most successful seasons in the history of the College. They ended second 
in the league but broke many records which had been established. The team 
is to be commended for the terrific pace set against its opponents.

ASEBALL, 1937 

Lebanon Valley's 1937 diamond season was not a big success, for the 
college won only four games and lost six. 

The first two games with Palmyra A. A. and Albright were postponed 
on account of rain. The team's first appearance on the diamond was a good 
one, and they sent Susquehanna back to Selinsgrove with a 6-1 defeat. 

In the first league game, Lebanon Valley fell to the dust as the pitcher, 
Paul Billett, was knocked out of the box. L. V. seemed half asleep in this 
game, allowing three stolen bases that later tallied and counted in the 
8-0 defeat by Gettysburg. 

On May 7, Lebanon Valley encountered Ursinus for another league tilt 
and again was defeated by three runs, 2-5. Valley played a better style ball 
than Ursinus but could not cash in on the breaks. 

The next game was better, for L. V. beat Moravian 6-3. Billett's pitching 
was better, and Valley's batting and fielding were more up to par. 

In the last home game, L. V. lost a hard-fought game to Muhlenberg, 
6-5. As three days before, they again fielded the ball very well; but this 
time their ability to bat in the runs was not great, and errors also marred 
the game for L. V. 

May 17 was a bad day, and L. V. was defeated by its arch-rivals, Albright, 
11-5. Errors and lack of hits took their toll from the Valleyites. 

Two days later the Valleyites began to climb the winning ladder again 
by defeating Bucknell 6-2. 

Again, two days later, they took their worst beating of the season by 
Mount St. Mary's College, 2-12. The defeat was again partly credited to 
a total of six errors. 

The last two games of the season were league games and were hard- 
fought. Valley beat Drexel, 6-4, at Philadelphia, but dropped a close 
game, 6-5, to Juniata at Huntingdon. 

Only two players were lost from the '37 squad, P. Billett and Poloniak. 
Metoxen is expected to turn out a good team this year.

ENNI S, 19 3 7 

The 1937 Lebanon Valley tennis team swung into action with a good 
start by defeating its neighbors, Elizabethtown, 6-1. 

The team was idle for the next week and a half and was forced to post- 
pone four games on account of rain. This rain seemed detrimental because 
the next scheduled game was a defeat, 8-1, by the racketeers from Bucknell. 

With the month of May swinging into season, the Valleyites also swung 
back into form to chalk up a fairly good record for the season with eight 
wins and five losses. The next three games in schedule were easily won. 
On May 4, the crew of swingers defeated Juniata unanimously 9-0, and 
two days later nosed Drexel 6-3. Again playing Juniata on May 7, on Ann- 
ville soil, the boys quelched the Huntingdon wielders 8-1. 

The Valleyites three days later played host to Franklin and Marshall, 
who set the Dutchmen down to the tune of 2-7. Still playing host and still 
in line for defeats, Lebanon Valley on May 12 chalked up another by 
Muhlenberg, 3-6. 

On the following day, L. V. emerged from the defeat column to get 
back easily into the wins at the expense of Moravian, 7-1. 

Their next game was canceled on account of rain, so that no court su- 
premacy was decided between Dickinson and Lebanon Valley. 

Rain seemed to be a bad factor for the Valleyites because, as earlier in 
the season, the boys took another drubbing, 9-0, at Lancaster. 

Lebanon Valley's racketeers did not wind up their season with a bang 
as her basketball and football players did. Their final game with Albright 
also spelled defeat, but not an easy one. The Valleyites gave them a run 
for their money, but dropped the meet, 3-4. 

The Valleyites lost three men by graduation — Donmoyer, Snell, and 
Kinney, but the '38 season promises to equal, if not surpass, last year's. 
Still possessing Shenk, Umberger, Shapiro, and Evelev, who wield a mean 
racket, the boys ought to turn in a good season.

A demonstration game was played in December between Lebanon Valley 
and Shippensburg, at Harrisburg, in order to give prospective referees their 
national and state examinations, as well as to clarify new rules and discover 
team faults. 

The season officially opened with a game with Annville High School, which 
was lost. On February 26, Cedar Crest came with three teams and defeated the 
home teams; it was observed that Lebanon Valley girls are gracious hostesses 
and good losers. 

A similar day of basketball was enjoyed at Dickinson, with Lebanon Valley, 
Bucknell, and Susquehanna participating. The day included games, a banquet, 
swimming, and a tea. On March 19, the team went to Moravian, where, 
although they lost, they were very royally entertained both at the school and 
later at "Jackie" Jagnesak's home. The inter-school season ended with a 
home game which was won from Albright. 

Jeanne Houck as basketball leader did well in arranging these games and in 
organizing a class tournament. The games proved very exciting and left the 
Senior-Junior team the victor. 

Basketball at Lebanon Valley is played because it is a fine sport and because 
such physical activity is desirable; it is not the object to hammer out a strong 
team. When basketball is played in this way, more girls can enjoy it, and its 
place as a popular sport is assured.

IRLS' HOCKEY, 1937-38 

In a brief review of the season, the trip to Philadelphia for a hockey week- 
end stands out as first in importance. There the team, proudly dressed in new 
tunics, played with other schools and was excellently coached by ail-American 
stars. Even though it meant giving up their Homecoming Day activities, none 
of the lucky eleven complained. Well worth the sacrifice was the fun and ex- 
perience there received. 

A similar trip to Cedar Crest with hockey stressed, not for score but for good 
playing, was another highlight. There were also games with Shippensburg 
and the Harnsburg Hockey Association. Lebanon Valley's policy is, however, 
not one of a hard-fighting varsity; rather it is good hockey and a chance for all 
to play. 

To carry out these ideas a very interesting series of games between the 
Senior-Soph team and the Junior-Frosh team was carried on. The latter were 
the victors, but excellent hockey was played by both. 

The season was brought to a close by an informal dinner and general dis- 
cussion. The girls proudly cherished pictures and souvenirs of trips as well as 
memories of many happy hours spent out-of-doors. Reluctantly hockey was 
given up for the year, but the team and the college are all set for a fine season 
next year.

<J\tay Day 

May 8, 1937! And a beautiful, bright, sunny day it was, that day 
of festivity and gaiety, of many smiles and much buzzing enthusiasm. 
This spirit typified the day of "Ye Merrie Carnival" until 2 p. m., 
when, with little or no warning, the L. V. C. campus was drenched 
with a veritable belated April thunder shower. 

Lebanon Valley had, nevertheless, a team of gentlemen in blue and 
white who, that day, with reeds and brasses, battled the blighting, 
battling efforts of Pluvius. Their efficient, impromptu concert caused 
more favorable comment from the alumni, parents, students, and 
faculty than the band members will ever realize. 

One week later, under a clear blue sky, which remained so through- 
out the afternoon, was enacted "Ye Merrie Carnival." 

In ancient times the carnival was the season for banquets. Scenes of rash 
and romantic vows were made by the lords of the feast and their friends. 
After the banquet came the dance at which time all men made merry. 

On this day, in more modern fashion, the group gathered on the 
green as of old, to honor Her Majesty the Queen and her court. Dull 
care was thrown to the winds while all the participants did the initial 
dance on the green grass of L. V. C. campus. 

Next came the processional, which included the Queen, her court, 
and all the May-pole dancers; the processional had been written and 
arranged by Miss Helen Butterwick. 

In true ceremonial form the stately Queen, Lois Harbold, was 
crowned by the lovely Maid of Honor, Ruth Buck. The pair were a 
perfect nucleus about which to form a beautiful and handsome court. 

Reigning auspiciously from her throne, Lois beckoned for enter- 
tainment, and immediately it was announced by the booming voice of 
that open-mouthed and quick-witted Orator with the Silver Tongue, 
Louis Straub, while he twisted his handlebar mustache. A spectacular 

i 115}- 

<JWay Day 

group of pirates, headed by Jean McKeag, 
entered with a bold song and a brave dance. 

As a fine contrast, this was followed by a 
unique ball dance. Free of care, the dancers, 
gowned in delicate tints of yellow, green, pink, 
and blue, passed their colored balls in time 
with the gay music. 

With a "Yip-pi-kah-yo-ki-ya," the cowboys appeared in full regalia — lassoes, chaps, and 
sombreros — and beckoned for their sturdy partners, the cowgirls. Then they all hurled their 
lassoes and courted in true cowboy and cowgirl fashion. 

The clowns next occupied the stage with their silly and inane capers, to the glee of the young- 
sters and the merriment of all onlookers. 

Perhaps the most impressive scene of the afternoon was the conventional May-Pole Dance. This 
was more colorful than usual as there were three May-poles instead of one and, it may be added, 
the ribbons formed a neat, striped pattern which betrayed not a single mistake in the routine of 
the dance. Somehow we feel that this, the traditional dance of May Day, was most successful 
on this festal day of days because of that careful, intricate winding about the poles and because 
of the carefree abandon of the young men and ladies who took part in the dance. 

A group of Sophomores next gave 
their interpretation of a Greek hoop 
dance which was an excellent exem- 
plification of grace and agility. They 
seemed to have completely caught 
the spirit of the Greek lasses who 
used to twirl their hoops on the vel- 
vety green down, in finely esthetic 
exposition of Terpsichorean art. 

An Oriental feeling next pervaded 
the atmosphere of the day. The Glee 
Club, formed from the Boys' Band, 
set the mood of the dance by singing 
Ketelby's "In a Persian Market." 
The solo dance, which included magic 
incantations and ritual over an in- 
cense burner, was beautifully inter-

preted by Lucile Maberry. She was ably supported in her dance by a group of five Sophomores. 
The effect produced was greatly enhanced by the exotic music of the Band. 

A group of fine-looking militarists next greeted our eyes. Nine young soldierettes, dressed in 
uniforms of red and white, strutted by on the field with their leader, Lucy Cook. 

Making their entrance on the field next were the fairies, flitting over the soft green carpet in 
sheer white gossamer gowns. Lovely to look at, they, too, filled the air with the delicate feeling so 
familiar on this day symbolic of the entrance of summer and the dismissal of care and worry. 

Finally, as in the beginning, all participants danced on the grass, giving a fitting climax to a 
happy holiday. 

Lest we forget, we owe much to the group of Peasants Gay, who, under the direction of Ernestine 
Jagnesak, performed various duties such as selling and taking tickets, distributing programs, and 
vending other sundry wares; and to the flower girls, who provided many a petaled decoration 
for young men's button-holes. 

To the many, many folks who wondered about the identity of Tony and his 
monkey, we will disclose this secret — they were none other than "Don" Worley 
and little George Rutledge. 

Final tribute we pay to the committees and organizations who planned and 
arranged the details of the carnival so efficiently, and especially to Miss Esther 
Henderson, the power behind the May Day throne, who wrote and directed 
probably the finest May Day program our campus has ever known.

A group of musicians representing each class is chosen annually on the 
basis of personality traits and accomplishments that combine to make them 
outstanding people in the Conservatory. 

Individualism is evident at a glance: Catherine Coleman, excellent flutist 
and one of the few Freshmen in the Glee Club; Philip Lester, Sophomore, 
filled to the brim with good nature, fine trombone music, and quiet, forceful 
habits of leadership. 

Jean Marbarger, Junior, is a coloratura soprano with an unusually wide 
range, whose progress has been phenomenal. Robert Clippinger, splendid 
organist, a perfect combination of musicianship, intelligence, and an unas- 

i 118 

suming attitude, a Junior, knows what to do and does it. Amy Meinhardt, 
a Junior personifying conscientiousness, exhibits a capacity for incredible 
amounts of work while maintaining her reputation as a polished pianist 
and an honor student. Robert Smith, wittiest of persons, is a versatile 
musician with especially great talent for organ and bassoon. 

Among the Seniors are Rita Mosher, outstanding piano soloist, who is 
continually in demand as an accompanist and to whom music study is a joy; 
Emily Kindt, performer on unusual instruments, L. V. C.'s first bass clarinet- 
ist, and an extraordinarily talented marimba player; Cecil Oyler, cornetist, 
mature in his ideas, who possesses the keenest sense of humor and a superior 
ability to understand people; and Lucille Maberry, who has shown for four 
years genuine ability in campus leadership, which is probably responsible 
for her being one of the very finest of student teachers.

"The Women Have Their Way," a new Spanish play by the Quinteros, 
was produced on December 8 by the members of the Junior Class, in Engle 
Hall, with Robert Spohn, an alumnus of the college, as director. 

Jean Marbarger, in her role of Concha, handled her characterization master- 
fully, as did Anna Morrison as Dona Belena, a dowager. Benjamine Goodman 
took the role of Don Julian, a priest, while Vincent Naugle, as Sacristan, and 
Clarence Lehman, as Guittara, played comic parts. Helen Himmelberger was 
Santita, a comic character. Marianne Treo and Alice Richie in the parts Angela 
and Pilar, respectively, were two pretty girls. William Clark played Pepe 
Lora, the villain, and Franklin Zerbe was a doctor. Nellie Morrison took 
the part of Dieguilla, a servant girl, while Mae Mulhollen handled the 
part of a village girl. 

The play has as its setting a small Spanish town where a love affair is 
brought about through gossip. The two young people, portrayed by June 
Crum and Robert Strayer as Juanita and Don Adolpho, were married in spite 
of themselves because "the women had their way." 




The Steele-Mitchell play, "Post Road," two hundred performances of which 
were applauded by discriminating New York audiences in 1934, was presented 
by the Wig and Buckle Club on Monday night, November 22, in Engle Hall. 

The action, which dealt with a gang of kidnappers, took place in a tourist 
home. Dorothy Kreamer topped off her brilliant stage career at L. V. C. in 
the role of the old maid who owned the tourist home. 

Her brother-in-law, George, was played by Vernon Rogers, while the part 
of his domineering wife was capably handled by Betty Bender. Curvin Thomp- 
son did a commendable job of portraying the hypocritical minister. Many 
scenes were stolen also by Robert Tschop, who has become a familiar sight 
on L. V. C.'s stage. 

Among those taking minor roles were Margie Bordwell, Myrtle LefF, 
Laureen Dreas, Mary Spangler, Mildred Haas, and Doyle Sumner. 

Paul Horn and Henry Schott were in charge of the exceptionally numerous 
properties, stage setting, and electrical work. 




May 14, 1937 — Remember the date? Surely you couldn't have forgotten 
the Junior Prom! It is the long-awaited social function that climaxes all the 
activities of the year. All who like to dance count the days impatiently until 
it comes, bringing with it a flurry of preparations. Why does everything 
seem to go wrong at the last minute? At last you are ready, and with your 
date (who seems more wonderful than ever) you start off for the dance. 

Traditionally the Prom is held in the spacious Hershey Park Ballroom, 
where you go with feet a-tingle. Paul Tremaine and his Lonely Acre Orchestra 
are gallantly playing for your pleasure. What a beautiful sight is presented 
by the gaily dressed crowd circling the huge floor with the colored lights 
overhead lending a rosy hue to the scene. Laughter and happy voices are 
heard as old friends greet one another, for many alumni have come back for 
this big dance and many happy memories are recalled. 

During the evening the Clio trio composed of Misses Maberry, Cox, and 
Hoffman sings and makes us all proud of the Conservatory. Then Emily Kindt 
artistically plays her marimba. And so the dance goes on. 

Finally comes the culmination of the pleasant evening. "Pete" Fridinger, 
Prom leader, and Jeanne Houck step forward to lead the promenade. Professor 
Carmean planned it and helps the young couple to lead the intricate figures. 
It is all great fun, even though the fast walking proves fatiguing. Once more 
Pete and Jeanne start dancing. The dance continues until twelve o'clock, when 
the end must come. 

Now the Prom is history, but everyone had a good time and is grateful to 
the Junior Class whose members worked so tirelessly to make it a success. 
The Junior Prom will always be remembered as one of the most pleasant eve- 
nings of our eventful years at Lebanon Valley College. 



HE editor is particularly grateful for the 
moral support of the student body, the 
helpfulness of the Junior Class, the sym- 
pathetic interest of the faculty, and the 
cooperation of the entire staff. 
To Dr. George G. Struble, the editor is indebted for 
much valuable counsel and innumerable kindnesses; to 
Mr. W. E. Rowe and J. Horace McFarland Co., for the 
countless ways in which they assisted technically; to 
Mr. W. C. Gadd and the Canton Engraving and Electro- 
type Co., for aid in planning and constructing the book; 
to Zamsky's Studios, for the excellence of the annual's 
photography; and to Mr. L. P. Clements, for the use of 
several cuts. 

On behalf of the whole staff gratitude is expressed to 
the former editor, William F. Clark, not only for those 
products of his pen retained and used, but also for his 
enthusiastic plans which might have materialized, had 
he not found it necessary to tender his regretted
