MISS MARY E. GILLESPIE
Pea/? of Women
MISS GILLESPIE, supervisor of the
Conservatory of Music, is social dean
of women and hostess of North Hall. Under
her efficient supervision the Conservatory
has risen to a place second to none, for she
recently won an accreditation by the National
Association of Schools of Music for the music
department, a fact which Lebanon Valley
can note with pride. She is a familiar figure
at the various social functions throughout the
year where she presents a striking and grace-
ful appearance. Those who are intimately
acquainted with her find her a charming and
dignified hostess. The present rationing of
automotive supplies will affect her greatly,
for she has seldom missed a week-end in New
York during the opera season.
A. H. M. STONECIPHER
dean of Men
DR. STONECIPHER, dean of the College,
is also professor of Latin language and
literature. Tall of stature and gaunt in appear-
ance, he makes it a virtual necessity that we
look up to him. All who find occasion to solicit
his counsel find him a sympathetic listener
and of a placid nature. Dignified and quiet,
he still manages at times to display a most
delightful wit and a ready sense of humor.
Gardening and landscaping will occupy a
considerable amount of his time this spring
and summer, for he has recently acquired a
fresh interest — a beautiful new home.

dedication , . .
THERE are very few students on the campus of Lebanon
Valley College who have not, at some time or another,
become acquainted with Miss Gladys Pencil. Her duties as
Assistant Registrar necessitate contact with the student body,
especially at the semesters' end when one learns if those nights
spent in cramming were of any avail. The fact that she also
manages quite ably to play the role of chief Girl Friday to the
faculty members must not be overlooked. Consequently, m
appreciation of her myriad services so willingly and capably
performed, her friendly attitude towards the student, and her
wholehearted espousal of the cause of this institution, the
Junior Class respectfully dedicates the 1943 Quittapahilla to
a grand person, Gladys Pencil.
ALTHOUGH Miss Pencil be-
lieves that her office work
should be first and foremost in
her daily life, she still finds time
for a variety of outside interests.
She is a member of the Annville
chapter of the American Asso-
ciation of University Women,
besides belonging to other local
women's groups. Several hobbies
occupy much of her spare time.
Of special interest are her herb
garden and her scrapbook of
designs and floor plans of homes.
Currently, she is reviving an old
form of art work, accomplished
with paints and stencils, and has
already delivered a lecture on
the subject. Athletics is also an
important part of her recreational
program, for she often travels to
Hershey to swim and bowl.

MISS MARGARET ALICE WOOD ^ ^^^
Dea/t of South Hall P^2
WE, THE FACULTY of Lebanon Valley College do hereby memorialize
and express our profound regret over the death of one of our most esteemed
colleagues. Miss Margaret Alice Wood was notable for her courageous honesty,
her unswerving devotion to principle, and her keen intellect. As dean in charge
of South Hall she inspired respect by her wise governance and affection by her
kindly heart. As a classroom teacher her vigorous intellect, combined with her
breadth of experience, made her an opponent of all sham and false sentimentality,
and gave her discussions of social problems a realism that was scientific in more
than the academic sense of the term. Her absence will be keenly felt by her students
and colleagues alike; and the memory of the courageous fight of her last years
will be an inspiration to all who knew her.

democracy Is Keynote of Student Government
ORDER, order everywhere, or so it seems with four highly effective governing i^odies
on the Lebanon Valley campus. The dorm girls are under the jurisdiction of the
Women's Student Government Association, better known and feared by Frosh as the
"Jigger Board," while the day student co-eds follow the lead of the Women's Commuters'
Council. Delinquent dormitory males are tried before the stern and sturdy Men's Senate,
while men day students are kept in order under the controlling hand of the Men's Day
Student Congress. Each of these organizations is composed of representatives elected every
spring by the student body from the four classes and each is responsible for much of the
student's recreational program. Rec' hours, parties, and the annual Christmas banquet
belong in this category. The Student-Faculty Council serves as a medium for student-
faculty cooperation, and is composed of the presidents or representatives of the various
organizations on campus.

Ciuittie Publishes Vi Record
TDEFORE undertaking the task of editing the '43 Quittie, the staff was
-*--' warned by those experienced in the problems of yearbook work that it
would be "one big headache." But the members set out to debunk this idea
and to prove that editing the book could be a lot of fun and beneficial at
the same time.
The central theme connecting the book is its appearance as a scrapbook.
In this way the staff has endeavored to record by word and picture the events
and personalities commemorative of the 1941-42 college year at Lebanon
The success of the book would not have been possible without the co-
operation of the entire staff. Special mention should be given to Editor-in-
chief David Shaner and Associate Editor Howard Paine for those long after-
noons spent in the library conference rooms, to John Hampton for the many
hours spent in the darkroom, to Genevieve Stansfield for her splendid art
work, and to Donald Bartley for his capable handling of the business end
of the book.

THE who, what, why, when, where of the recorder of the "five W's" of campus activity — La Vie
CoUegienne, which has a staff of thirty members, is a weekly publication which appears every
Thursday at Lebanon Valley College, and is printed to serve and record collegiate events.
Snapshots from staff life:
Friday — "Would you give me the particulars concerning the dance on the twenty-fourth? It's
for La Vie."
Monday — Type, type, type.
Tuesday — 3.30 p.m. — "No lead on this. How many words in this article?" — 10 p.m. — "A few more
heads to write. — Take this to the printer. — Pick up the ads. — Get that cut."
Wednesday — Myerstown, here it comes. Some of the staff revel in printer's ink for the afternoon.
— 10 P.M. — "These proofs are read. — Do you have space for this flash?"
Thursday — 5.45 p.m. — "Did you see La Vie?" — "No, why? Am I mentioned?"
Headlines of the year:

World events warrant tips for students — by Dr. Clyde A. Lynch

Such moments and such headlines make up the life of the unsung heroes of the college paper who
work for the joy of it and receive only criticism as pay. They are the "power of the press" who see
that elections come off on time, that celebrities receive their due, that take the pulse of student feeling,
that "kabitz" from their vantage point, and that record Lebanon Valley's activities for posterity.
Girls Prove Themselves . . .
THE Clionian Literary Society was founded for the purpose that its name suggests, but
there have been some very definite changes made through the years that it has existed.
The second oldest society on campus, it has kept the name of literary society although its
function is now purely social. Since the girls' societies take the place of organized sororities,
they are patterned as closely as possible on this type of club. Clio has a list of rushing activities
that are presented every fall to welcome the freshmen girls. These include a hike, a tea, and
joint sessions that are held with the other societies. As a climax to the rushing season an informal
initiation is followed by an impressive formal ceremony presented by the sophomores. Activities
do not cease with the end of rushing season but social events continue to be sponsored through-
out the year. During the second semester of this past year Clio girls concentrated their efforts
in working for the Red Cross and in other projects to earn money for a similar reason. The
most important event of the society is the formal Anniversary Dance which was held this
year in the ballroom of Hotel Hershey where Clionians and their guests danced to the music
of Frank Taylor's Orchestra.

ALTHOUGH the last social organization to be established on our campus, Delphian is
nevertheless one of the most active. This year proved to be no exception. Its rushing
season included a gipsy hike, a tea made outstanding by the presentation of a colorful
fashion show with Delphian's own lassies as models, a joint session with Kalo, and finally the
initiation and welcoming party for the new members.
In addition to the regular meetings held the third Monday of each week in the society hall,
Delphian's social season was highlighted by its Anniversary Celebration which took the form
of a dinner-dance, held this year on February 28 at the popular Hotel Abraham Lincoln, Reading.
As has been the custom previously, special entertainment was provided for the non-dancers.

P/ay and dance Climax . , .
FOR seventy-five years Philo has been a prominent campus organization, always endeavor-
ing to maintain its fine reputation, as was the case this year. In conjunction with the
other societies, dances were sponsored for the freshmen and the school in general. These
novel interludes in otherwise dull week-ends were splendid ways of getting the new men and
women together, showing them the true spirit of comradeship and fraternity characteristic
of Philo. Not to be overlooked was the "colorful" initiation given the new members in an effort
to impress upon them the importance of the slogan, "Once a Philo, always a Philo." May
Day evening found Philo men, from freshmen to alumni, celebrating the most important event
of the year — their diamond anniversary. Under the capable direction of the anniversary presi-
dent the annual dinner-dance was acclaimed worthy of the occasion which it honored. The
evening before, "The Late Christopher Bean," by Sidney Howard, was produced with the help
of Clio, Philo's sister society.

THE purpose of the International Relations Club is to
instruct and enlighten public opinion. It aims to fix the
attention of students on those underlying principles of inter-
national conduct, law and organization which must be agreed
upon and put into action if a peaceful civilization is to be
restored. With this aim in mind the Club selected as its
theme this year, "The Relations of the United States in the
Present Conflict." Meetings were held the second Monday
of each month, \\ith all the members of the Club participating
in the discussions. Elizabeth Sattazahn was President of the
Club, and Professor Frederic Miller was Club Adviser. Other
officers were Samuel Beamesderfer, Vice President, and
Franklin Patschke, Secretary-Treasurer.

IN AN atmosphere of ammonia and aeici fumes
and amid violent discussions about ionization
constants or structural formulas one finds our
chemists hard at work under the guidance of
Drs. Bender and Porter.
Every month these students meet and in a
more formal atmosphere discuss the old problems
and recent advances in their field. The meetings
are varied. Sometimes guest speakers are featured ;
at other times the Club members themselves
present topics in which they are especially inter-
ested, and occasionally sound motion pictures
are shown which are concerned with various
aspects of chemistry. One of the most popular
activities of the Club ar? the trips to laboratories

THE Wig and Buckle Club
initiated the '41-'42 dra-
matic season by presenting four
veterans of the Valley stage and
a wealth of new material in an
interesting interpretation of Sir
James Barrie's "What Every
Forsaking his almost tradi-
tional priestly make-up, Dennis
Sherk hit a new high as the stern
politician, John Shand, whose
greatest fortune was his under-
standing wife, Maggie Wylie,
the Scottish lass "w'out nae
charm" but an overflow of "What
Every Woman Knows" about
ambitious, erring husbands — cur-
tain calls to Betty Minnich for
her skill and ease on the boards,
and for her Scotch dialect. The
two remaining veterans, Louise
Boger and David Gockley, as
Lady Sybil and Mr. Venables,
acted in a properly spirited
manner despite the fact that
their roles were not adequate
vehicles for their talents.
Of the newcomers, the stellar
performer was Mary Jane Fulton
whose acquaintance with the
French language and the char-
acter of Comtesse de la Briere
which she previously portrayed
contributed to a flawless per-
formance. Also making their
Valley debut were Jack
McFadden as David Wylie; Oscar
Seyler as James Wylie; Charles
Shelley as the sorrel-topped head
of the Wylie family, Aliek Wylie;
Helen Bush as the maid; and
Luther Robinson as the butler.

through the Night" Wins
'Y'HROUGH THE NIGHT"— (i) A Ryer-
son and Clements mystery play; also (2),
to the Junior Class, the road to a dramatic
success. A successful play calls for con-
sistent rehearsals. Those for "Through
the Night" savored of several pinches
of humor. Of the latter, two are notable:
Paine's quixotic demonstration of the appli-
cation of a kiss for the benefit of Hans
Uberseder, and Dr. Struble's ingenious
"lip-buzz" telephone bell.
And now the finished product . . .
Lloyd Crall with his deep voice and
dignified carriage was excellent in the
role of Dii'ight Holbrook, well-to-do busi-
nessman murdered by his close associate,
the fiendish Calvin Driscoll — Hitlerian
mustache and all — the perfect part for
Howard Paine who cast creepy, ape-like
shadows as he stalked into his crime.
Genevieve Stansfield portrayed Sayre
Holbrook, the murdered man's niece, who,
after having tossed aside her polo-playing
fiance and childhood sweetheart, Gregory
Stanton — Franklin Patschke — generated
an interesting affair with Bunny, the
beautifully awkward handyman. An
"Oscar" to Hans Uberseder for his
Plaudits for Juniors
Mary Jane Forry Fulton turned in a fine per-
formance as Mrs. Alicia Keeje, Say re's pretentious,
talkative aunt who was delightfully successful at
vamping anti-crime conscious Bart Jessup, the
"one-man police force" who captured Driscoll —
appropriately handled by Jacob Rhodes. Honors also
to "Katie" Dunkle in the role of the play's "glamour
girl," Kay Stanton, Donald Bartley as Smith the
shrewd "Owl" of criminal notoriety, Doris Smith as
Roberts the maid, and Richard Immler as the
Adding to the success of the play was a new set
of scenery, one of the best ever seen on the L. V. C.
stage. Responsible for this new creation was Dennis
Sherk and his proficient crew: Frederick Frantz,
Walter Ebersole, John Hampton, and John Bam-
Credit should likewise be given to Dr. George
Struble for his masterly direction, and his skilful
coordination of the efforts of the cast and technical
PhilO'Clio's ''The White Steed"
WITH the assistance of such oddities as Dr. Struble's
"crowd noises," and a taped table leg, the Philo-Ciio
Thespians presented May Day Eve entertainment in the
form of Paul Vincent Carroll's play of the Irish Renais-
sance, "The White S-eed."
The play, based on an old Irish legend, dramatized the
conflict between the unyielding, elderly parish priest Canon
Matt — orchids to Dennis Sherk — and his ?iear-successor,
young, headstrong Fa(/)er5^aug/)?iessv' — Carroll Reed. Among
the latter's reforms were Nora Fintry, romantic, vivacious
parish librarian — ably accomplished by Martha Jane Koontz
— and Dennis Dillon, drunken, jelly-spined schoolmaster —
realistically unfolded by Bruce Souders. For the one great
scene between Dennis and Nora in the second act. Dr.
Struble was forced to revise the script to avoid a ludicrous
contrast between the sizes of the actors involved. Floda
Trout's performance as Canon Malt's nurse. Rose Ann, bore
the semblance of professionalism. Her Irish brogue was
master '"ully handled, and together with Dennis Sherk, high-
lighted the play.
Supporting were: Carroll McFerren, Isabel Shatto,
Mary MehafTy, Ellen Ruppersberger, John Chambers,
Harry Miller, Earl Reber, and Harry Fehl.
KalO'delph'm's ''Outward Bound"
ACCLAIMED as one of the best stage productions
-^*- in many years was the Kaio-Deiphian presentation
of Sutton Vane's "Outward Bound" which went before
the footlights, March 28, 1941, under the direction of
Mrs. Paul Billet and Dr. George Struble.
The critics were reluctant to single out any one indi-
vidual for praise because of the excellent workmanship
on the part of the entire cast. Especially noteworthy,
however, were Frank Shenk's comprehensive interpreta-
tion of a heavy role which included both a drunken and
an hysterical scene, and Richard Zentmeyer's indecisive
and dazed character. Laudations were also tagged on
Betty Minnich for her Cockney accent. Earl Boltz for
his inspiring prayer, and Joe Carr for his appearance,
mannerisms, and bearing. Martha Wilt, as Mrs. Cliveden-
Banks, showed great promise on the boards.
The cast consisted of: Scruhhy, Ralph Shay; Ann, Feme
Poet; Henry, Richard Zentmeyer; Tom. Prior, Frank Shenk;
Mrs. Cliveden-Banks, Martha Wilt; Rev. Duke, Earl
Boltz; Mrs. Midget, Betty Minnich; Mr. Lingley, George
Grow; and Rev. Thomson, Joe Carr.

fessor Edward Rutledge's demands for the best from every member in plenty of long evening re-

Jemmes add atmosphere and color everywhere they appear. Rehearsals at eight o'clock in the
morning find them all bright-eyed, wide-awake, and rarin' to go. Punctuality is their motto.
This organization furnishes a real added attraction at our football games and is quite independent
of the Boys' Band, except when masculine assistance is needed in tying neckties. Snappy drills and
swanky uniforms make everyone sit up and take notice. Then Memorial Day finds them in the front
ranks of Ephrata's annual parade. The girls are actually a fine group of selected musicians who enjoy
working hard under the capable leadership of Professor Rutledge.

The Athletic Council
OEVERAL years ago the administration of Lebanon Valley
*^ College, feeling the need of a specific organization to deter-
mine athletic problems, proposed a committee to be known as
the Athletic Council. The membership of the Council is com-
posed of seven men. Professor C. R. Gingrich heads the group
as its chairman, with Dr. Amos Black, faculty member, and
C. G. Dotter, college alumnus, serving as secretary and treasurer
respectively. The Department of Athletics is ably represented
by Coach Jerome W. Frock. The college president. Dr. Clyde A.
Lynch, and Dr. AL L. Stokes and Professor Frederic Miller,
faculty members, complete this group.
The purpose of this efficient organization is to approve all
programs and to determine all policies. Under the guidance of
these seven learned men, Lebanon Valley athletics keeps ever
progressing toward better standards 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 meetings of the Council are called by the chairman at
which time the airing of numerous problems transpires.
Ever-increasing prominence is being gained by the Council in
the whole workings of the administration of the college. The
Council has fully proved its capability in the making and sup-
porting of the Dutchmen and has made itself indispensable.

INCITED by the fervor and enthusiasm of the "New Regime," the
1941 Flying Dutchmen of the gridiron stamped a most successful
season into the athletic annals of Lebanon Valley College. Albright
fell! The Lion's claws were clipped for the first time in seven years.
That victory in itself was enough to warrant a successful season. Yet
in addition, the "New Regime" "kept 'em flyin' " as the '41 eleven
crossed foreign goal lines often enough to conquer four and tie one
of the eight opposing teams.

THE smallest squad in Lebanon Valley College's athletic history, made up for the most part of freshmen,
lost their first two games to more powerful and more experienced teams. In their first game with Bucknell
University, Coach Frock's minions were the victims of two long runs in the first half, but came back in the
second to scare the very daylights out of the vaunted Bisons. In the second game of the season the Moravian
Mules defeated the Valley eleven on a pass interception in the last few minutes of play after the score stood 6-6.
It was in the spacious Hershey Stadium, as an enveloping mist painted haloes around the flood-lights, that
the Boys in Blue came to the realization that they were members of a powerful bail club. Running rough-shod
through the wavering C. C. N. Y. defense, the L. V. C. eleven piled up a total of five touchdowns to account
for a decisive defeat. In the early minutes of the traditional battle of the season with the lads from Albright,
the Flying Dutchmen had the game on ice as they mixed spinners, reverses, and passes to humble their Reading
rivals, 27-13. Riding high from their previous victories, the Frockmen journeyed to Chester, there to turn
in their worst performance of the season against a mediocre team, the Red and White of P. M. C. On the
following Saturday, smarting from defeat, the L. V. C. eleven came back to trim the Blue Ridge mountaineers,
19-0, with everyone but the coaches and managers seeing action. Although the Dutchmen were unable to
score in their encounter with the sons of Ben and John at Lancaster, there was little doubt as to the superiority
of the Blue and White. In the final game of the season, the Indians of Huntingdon were left stunned in their
reservation when the Flying Dutchmen pulled out for home after they had chalked up three touchdowns,
leaving the hapless Juniata College Indians scoreless.
Staley, Shay, and Schmalzer were stellar performers in the forward wall, while Ventresca and Matala were
big guns in the backfield. Captain Shay and Ventresca were mentioned on the Little AH American Team for
1941. Big "Hank"SchmaIzer was elected to captain the Flying Dutchmen of '42.

HERE'S a Band of which we
may be proud — and of which
\\(t are proud. Because of the un-
tiring efforts of Professor Rutledge,
this organization has become a
"stand-out" wherever it performs.
Its members malce an appearance
dressed in snappy blue and white
uniforms at all home football games,
and this year journeyed to the
F. and M. and P. M. C. tussles
at Lancaster and Chester. At the
Albright game the Girls' Band
combined with the boys to add to
the attractiveness of that unfor-
gettable occasion. The bandmaster
was veteran "Mac" McFarren,
while twirling the batons were
"Hon" Light and Gene Cohen.
The thirty-six musicians who
comprise the Band also provided
the basis for the student cheering
section, having introduced the
popular "Give us a Yell"
cheer. Their presence at the
games was a factor which
contributed much to the suc-
cess of the "New Regime" idea.
Besides attending the foot-
ball games, the Band also
presented its annual concerts
in Engle Hali and at the Forum
UPON the shoulders of
the student cheerlead-
ers this year fell the task of
stirring up L. V. C.'s dor-
mant school spirit. And
they succeeded to the ful-
lest. Through their efforts
and with the cooperation
of the student body, their
Zam ma- Zu !!! '
idea of a "New Regime" in school spirit went over with
Responding to "Bob" Dresel's call for recruits
were "Pete" Olenchuk, George Huff, John Schreiber,
Charles McConnell, and "Jack" Pruyn. Together
they worked out different formations for each cheer
and included gymnastic stunts in their drills. Pep ses-
sions were held on North Hall steps and in chapel during
the football season, and victory parades and bonfires
were also a part of the revised program. The fact that
the Lions of Albright, L. V.'s traditional rivals, were
dethroned proves that the idea of a "New Regime"
was a huge success.
W'hooping it up!

HANDICAPPED by poor practicing facili-
ties, laclc of experience, and limited re-
serves the Blue and White courtsters of '41-
'42 made a colorful season out of what might
be called an off-j^ear. During the season the
ragged Valley dribblers were the victims of
several high scores and yet they managed to
make the league leaders feel a bit uneasy on
more than one occasion before the final canto
was over. Losing a close one to Franklin and
Marshall in their first home game, the In-
trieri proteges were slow in getting over the
defeat. They crashed the winning column, how-
ever, when they bounced back to defeat Ursinus
on the Lebanon High School court after the
Bears had defeated them on their own court,
77-31. From that time on the listless Valley
quintet was unable to meet the demand of
outpointing their opponents, a necessary cri-
teria to chalking one up on the winning side of
The varsity lined up with George Smith
and Ralph Mease at the forward positions,
Harry Matala and "Don" Staley at the
guard slots, and "Steve" Kubisen at the pivot
post. Ralph Mease, coveted by every mentor in the
league, stood out like a blaze in a blackout in the
faltering L. V. hoopsters, capturing runner-up scoring
honors to the league leader, Haines of Bucknell, with
a season total of 168 points. Mease averaged exactly
14 points a game in ringing down the curtain on a
brilliant college career and definitely stamping himself
as one of the stand-outs of all time in the Eastern
Pennsylvania College Basketball circuit. In three
great seasons of basketball. Mease won the individual
scoring crown as a sophomore and twice finished in
the runner-up spot on mediocre teams. A compilation
of the other players' totals showed Kubisen with 85
for the season and Staley coming next with 72 markers.
Dorazio, C. Miller, H. A'liller, Neidig and Carbaugh
rounded out the '41-'42 squad.
THE "Yearlings under the tutelage of "Jerry" Frock counted off with
Schreiber at one forward spot and House! and Harriger alternating at the
other; Beshore and Beriont handling the backcourt duties; and Wasilewski
doing the jumping. On the records "Ben" Wasilewski showed up best with
a total of 104 markers for the season. Schreiber consistently hit the cords
for a term record of 82 points. Housel, who gamed m shooting accuracy
and in value to the team from game to game, was third with a total of 55.
Harriger, absent from the line-up for several games because of injuries,
garnered 30 points before the season ended. Beriont, coming to Lebanon
Valley from New Jersey between semesters, found little difficulty in gaining
a starting berth on the first year quintet. "Freddie" Beshore came to the
Annville school without having any previous basketball experience and not
only secured for himself a position on the club, but also developed into a back-
court student of parts as the season progressed. The Yearlings will un-
doubtedly prove an asset to the Valley courtsters of '42-'43.

THE Yearling slate shows a somewhat better
record for the season than the Varsity. At
times when playing a steady game of ball the
team looked like, and was, a winner, but then
again, throwing caution to the winds, on other
occasions they would invariably end up with
the higher score in the wrong column.
The most impressive victory of the '41-'42
season was chalked up against the young Dip-
lomats of Franklin and Marshall. Outclassed
and outpassed by the visitors in the first two
stanzas, the Blue and White first-year passers
looked helpless behind a 20-5 first-half score.
Coming back after the rest period the Frosh,
stepping up the tempo to something more than
waltz-time in the third and fourth cantos, racked
up 29 points to the Diplomats' 9 to win standing
up. On February 21 the Valley Yearlings jour-
neyed to Albright with the minimum of five
players due to a siege of injuries, and snapped
the nine-game winning streak of the Albright
Frosh. Wilting in the final chapter after putting
up a strong fight for their Alma Mater, the
Vaileyites dropped their final game to Albright
to close a mediocre season.

COACH WILLIAM ULLERY
of discouragement to the Dutchmen, for they received
their worst defeat of the season on April 28 at L. V. C.
at the hands of the same Elizabethtown team that had
defeated them in the opening tussle.
An overwhelming setback of 22-6 from the bats of
E-town's barrage brought the local team to its senses,
and when the Mules of Muhlenberg played host a
few days later, the Blue and White emerged victorious
with a score of 11-7. Frank Kuhn assumed the mound
duties for the home towners and pitched brilliant ball to
earn his first win of the campaign.
The Valley diamond men overacted the part of the
generous host when they permitted the Moravian College
nine to return to Bethlehem a 10-5 winner. At this point
the record for the season read five defeats and one victory.
Frank Kuhn again won himself a hurling victory by
pitching a commendable game against the University of
Delaware, coming out on top with a 5-3 score. The game
COACH William Ullery's baseball nine
of Lebanon Valley College started
the 1941 diamond campaign at Eliza-
bethtown, and engaged in fourteen con-
tests before the season reached its end.
Coach Ullerjr, serving his second term
as pilot for the Flying Dutchmen,
managed to have five encounters in the
winning column out of fourteen starts,
an average of .357 for the season.
The Blue and White team, suffering
from lack of timely hitting in the pinches,
initiated the opening contest on April 21
by coming out on the short end of a 5-4
score, after leading the E-town nine
until the late stages of the game.
The following game with Gettysburg,
played on their home diamond, proved
disastrous to the Blue and White when
the runs were totaled, for the latter
team again was defeated, 7-1.
On April 23, after the first two defeats,
the Annvillites were again set back by
the lads from Moravian on the Bethlehem
field by a score of 10-4. This result
seemed only to serve as another source
was close until the last stanza, but the Valleyites,
with good batting and superb pitciiing, defeated
the foe in the final stages.
Washington College rallied in the latter part of
the game to eke out a 1 1-9 victory over the Blue and
White on the former's diamond. Several days later the
hungry Ursinus Bears came up from Collegeville
and satisfied their appetites after a thirteen-inning
contest by crossing the plate three times while the
home lads fell short with two runs.
On May Day the 1 12th Infantry from Indiantown
Gap marched onto the Maple Street field but re-
treated on an 8-6 loss when their weapons proved
ineffective against the mound-work of a very de-
termined "Bob" Weiler. The Blue and White
batsmen unleashed their full fury on the soldiers,
pounding out ele\'en hits and giving "Bob" inspired
support in the fielding division.
Feeling confident after their defeat of the Army,
the Dutchmen traveled to Carlisle two days later, and
turned back Dickinson College, 7-5. "Art" Russo,
a rookie hurler on the Valley nine, curved them in
to effectively bewilder the Dickinson sluggers. He
was ably assisted, however, by timelj' hitting from
The Bisons of Buckneli next trotted to Annviile
and kicked up the dust, blanketing the Annviile
cohorts and administering a 9-4 defeat. Erratic
fielding, coupled with feeble stick-wielding at the
plate, spelled defeat and the downfall of the Dutch-
Following this set-back, the Dutchmen met the
Indians of Juniata at Huntingdon and were forced
to leave the banks of the Juniata after losing, 9-7.
Lebanon Valley humbled the Dragons of Drexel,
16-6, in the season's closer at Philadelphia. The
Drexel bats were helpless before the stellar hurling
of "Art" Russo.
Captain Frank Kuhn bore the blunt of the '41
pitching duties, with Russo and Weiler also coming
in for their share of the hurling. The infield was
rounded out with Harry Matala at first base, "Don"
Staley patrolling the keystone sack, Kern and Smith
at the hot corner, and "Ed" Schillo behind the bat.
In the outfield "Dick" Beckner, "Charlie" Miller and
Newbaker covered the outer greens.

ALTHOUGH starting the season with
only one hold-over on the squad, the
L. V. C. netmen showed to advantage over
their more experienced opponents. Their
courage and will to win was perhaps ex-
emplified best in the Elizabethtown match
when, working behmd a 4-0 disad\'antage,
they emerged the 5-4 victor. The men of
the chalked court also nosed out a much-
praised Albright team, 5-4, in another

AT THE beginning of this school year the idea
■^ *• prevalent in the minds of the veteran mem-
bers of the Blue and White Fencing Team was
that a tough schedule lay ahead of them and
that preparation should be made accordingly to
meet it. Consequently, "Dick" Phillips, acting
in the capacity of coach, issued a call for recruits,
new equipment was purchased, and workouts
were begun m the gymnasium.
As the year progressed, however, the
campus foils and sabers men decided
to forego the idea of preparing a team
to meet representatives of other colleges
sponsoring this sport and instead to
devote their time and effort to a
thorough mastery of the rudiments
and then attack the finer points of foil
and saber play for the sheer enjoyment
of the sport.
This small but ambitious and indus-
trious group consisted of four holdovers
from last year's squad, "Dick" Phillips,
"Herm" Fritsche, "Ed" Stansfield, and
John Chambers. Newcomers were

Tl /"HEN Old Man Winter's activities

due to the College's program, got into

Since inter-dormitory competition
seems to solicit greater interest than
inter-class games, the former was chosen
to start the season. The Day Student
aggregation seems to have been blessed
with basketball stars from all the towns
in the valley, for they pushed off with a
bang and followed through to come
out at the top of the league.
The Honor Squad, under the leader-
ship of Mary Johns, had a rather light
schedule which included competition
with Albright, Shippensburg, Elizabeth-
town, some high school teams, and on
the annual Play Day held on our
own campus. These games were
marked by a friendly atmosphere and
good sportsmanship, the qualities for
which the Squad strives.
W. A. A. Offers Variety of Sports
THE Women's Athletic Association's maxim, "Every girl in a sport, and a sport for
every girl," is the best possible summation of the purpose of the organization — to
give not only the most slvilful lassies an opportunity for participation in sports but
the less experienced players as well.
The requirement for membership is a specified number of points which may be
acquired by participation in both inter- and intramural sports. An annual spring
spree marks the initiation of new members and the awarding of former members who
have gained enough points to earn a letter, or a pin as the case may be.
The sports program offers variety throughout the year — hockey, tennis and soccer
in the fall; badminton, table tennis, basketball in the winter; volleyball, softball,
archery and again tennis in the spring. This group is devoted primarily to the develop-
ment of good sportsmanship rather than high-scoring teams.
Hockey Takes the field
THE Hockey field this year attracted a record number of co-eds from all four
classes, and a super-record number from the freshman class. The girls turned
out to practices at every available opportunity to have a good time, and at the same
time to master the techniques of the game.
This season was quite a successful one in comparison with preceding ones, as the
team chalked up a victory a larger number of times than it went down in defeat. The
record was not surprising to hockey fans, as the season opened with a number of
experienced upper-class players to serve as mainstays for the team: Mary Ellen Klopp,
hockey leader, "Pete" Geyer, Jane Stabley, "Vi" Snell, Mary Johns, Margaretta
Carey, Martha Crone, as well as a number of sophomores.
To neglect mention of the Frosh would be a gross omission, as this year was the
first in the history of hockey on campus that enough first-year girls appeared to or-
ganize a freshman team. It was not a group to be overlooked either, for they lost
only one of the games they played. Hockey served to continue the spirit of camaraderie
along with rivalry.

To the 1944 Editor of
'V^OURS is the task to prepare another school
annual which will serve as a record of the activities
of your class. If your yearbook means anything, it
must be not only an accurate record of activities, but
what is more, it must reflect something of the spirit
of your class. Carefully turned phrases and good
photographs and drawings can be so utilized as to
make an interesting record. In your job as editor,
you are challenged to produce something which will
increase in significance as the years pass.
Since 1878 we have been engaged in the art of
the printed word. Through the years we have built
a business based on high standards and high ideals.
As a result, we are able to place at your service a
staff of experienced designers, skilled craftsmen and
well-informed representatives who are always avail-
able to discuss your problems with you.
Our representatives will be delighted to discuss the 1944
edition oj your annual with you and your adviser. Let us assure
you that an interview obligates you in no way. To further ac-
quaint you tvith the art of printing, ive suggest that you visit us
here at the Mount Pleasant Press to see what we do and how we do
it. Write or telephone us for an appointment .
