All proper yearbooks, it seems, must be provided with a foreword and
a theme. Vast amounts of research have failed to unearth just why this
is so. Forewords sometimes explain the purpose of a book; but everyone
knows that a yearbook is a sort of condensed diary, photo album, and scrap-
book, and that it serves to freshen the memory of college life when one is
middle-aged and staid.
The problem of theme was attacked somewhat in reverse of the usual
procedure. Recognizing the near impossibility of doing anything really
new, we ignored theme entirely at first, and began by looking at covers.
Indians and log-cabins were looked at. Knights in armor and castles in the
air were contemplated. Icebergs and stylized representations of the atomic
age were inspected. There was a sunburst which we pictured on a brilliant
vermilion jacket. Somehow we just couldn't see it. There was quite an
assortment of charming death-heads which tempted us sorely. Finally we
saw one which we liked, and being possessed of the conviction that cover
and theme should match, we chose our Norse motif to go with it.
At this stage another problem presented itself. The road sign east of
Annville clearly spells Quitapahilla with one "t", and the printers told
us that this is the correct spelling. For years, here at Lebanon \^allev, the
name of the sacred stream has been spelled with two "t's." We were in
doubt as to whether to follow hallowed tradition, or to introduce the new-
form. After some discussion we decided upon the latter course.
These problems being solved, the Staff started on the Book itself, but
that, as Kipling would say, is another story.
Dr. Miller saved from destruction the very valuable historic
records of the Cornwall Furnace. In his recent doctorial thesis,
Dr. Miller devoted a chapter to the history of this monument of
dr. Frederick K. Miller
d Ed I CAT I OH
To FREDERICK K. "FRITZ" MILLER, Professor of History, we dedicate
the 1949 edition of the "Quittie." Those of us who have worked with him
praise him for his sincerity and thoroughness, in the classroom and out. As
a teacher of history he is the historian's delight. As an advisor to student
organizations, he is the epitome of help, guidance, and inspiration.

DR. aVDE A. iyUCH
Dr. Lynch, to all who are acquainted with him, represents the
zenith of college presidents. He maintains not only the dignity
necessary to such a position, but combines' with it the rare qualities
of amiability and geniality. Without a doubt, the eloquence of
oratory and conversation reaches supremacy in this, our capable
executive. It is with extreme delight and pride that we the students
salute him, our leader and friend.
MISS MARY £. GILUSPli
Miss Mary E. Gillespie occupies two of the
most important positions on our campus; Dean
oi Women and Director of the Conservatory.
Her advice and counsel are welcomed by all
because of her friendly manner and sincere
interest in student problems. Through her
dynamic personality and ability to organize,
the Conservatory has been raised to a level of
high distinction in the music world. Because of
her willingness to accept new ideas and chang-
ing trends, as well as her ability to mix her
work with her social life, she represents the
symbol of modern versatility.
dR. A. H. M. STONECIPHER
Dr. Stonecipher, by both his appearance and
temperament, exhibits dignity and friendliness.
For the many problems of guidance our dean
suggests workable solutions. He is not only
our advisor and organizer, but a scholar in the
true sense of the word. His characteristic chuckle
produces a feeling of ease in his presence. In
his genuine interest in student affairs and his
remarkable zest for living, our dean remains

The year which we are now completing draws to a close the undergraduate
history of the class of '48. There have been ups and downs and many thrill-
ing experiences had by all who participated in the activities of L. V.C. during
its rise from the dark days of 1944 to the sunnv present.
Ask anv member of the class of '48 to tell about the life at L. W C. during
the war. No men! that was the real trouble. Therefore no athletics or
dramatics — no nothing! In just three short years Lebanon \'alley has risen
out of the dust that surrounded it to be an institution twice its pre-war size;
to offer more courses in more departments than ever before; and to continue
to be one of the centers of citizen building that has exemplified it in the past.
The class of '48 has watched this progress. It has watched the lights go on
again on the second and third floors of the Men's dorm. It has seen Wash-
ington Hall rise from a seemingly meaningless hole in the earth. It has seen
Lebanon \'alley push forward scholastically, athletically, and socially to
attain a position far above its pre-war standards. This May marks the end
of the class of '48, but through the efforts of many of its members Lebanon
\'alley College has become a better place in which to studv and to live.

Junior Class History
The Class of '49 was the first class of which the vast majority of men students were veterans. The
spirit these men injected into the campus had an effect which will require years to restore the campus
life to the traditional college temperament.
These men, matured beyond their years, returned with a new, driving purpose. Education was
their goal and all efforts were directed toward that end. It is only fair to say that the social and extra-
curricular activities suffered greatly because of this factor. Campus leaders had great difficulty in
gaining active support for school projects, but professors were tickled pink to lecture and teach classes
which were very critical and thorough.
Gone were the days of the tie and dink, freshman rules, and the old college do-or-die. The Class
claimed the glory for the achievements of the outstanding athletes it possesses and yet, at athletic
contests was put to shame bv the lack of enthusiasm when compared to the spirit shown by the op-
posing school. However, the intramural teams showed a fiery competitive attitude in the axe league
and touch-football games.
The dances were not the hits it was hoped they would be as the heavy load carried by so few proved
too great and the helping hand of the bystanders was not extended.
The driving power behind the few successes can be credited to the clever co-eds. It seems that
the class of '49 is possessed of an extraordinary amount of talented femininity. They have starred on
the hockey field and basketball court; they have shown their literary talents and, most important,
have proved to be the factor which somewhat counterbalances the effect of the veteran.

Sophomore Class History
Never in the history of Lebanon Valley has one class brought about so many changes — both tangible and intangible —
as the class which entered in September, 1946. In opening its doors to hundreds of ex GI's the college, in common with every
institution of higher learning in the country, felt the impact of a freshman class almost as large as its entire pre-war enroll-
With the expansion of the physical plant and enlargement of the faculty came other changes which were destined to
have a profound effect upon everyone associated with the college. Gone were many of the time-honored traditions long
held to be an indispensable part of campus life. Serious-minded Joe Veteran replaced easygoing Joe College as the personi-
fication of the average college student; and the freshman class, because of its size and maturity, commanded enough respect
to bring about virtual abandonment of freshman rules.
Early in its first year the Class of 1950 elected John Charles Smith to its presidency, and defeated the sophomore class
7 to 6 in their annual football game. The "Frosh Frolic" was held in the Annville High School gym in April.
At the beginning of this year the newly elevated sophomores reorganized, elected Sal Fiorello president, and set about
formulating a class constitution.
In November the sophomores dragged the freshmen into the Quittie to win the annual tug-of-war, and defeated a younger,
lighter freshman football team, 13 to 6.
Whether or not the tremendous influence the Class of 1950 has had upon the college in the two years just passed has brought
about changes of a permanent nature is a matter of conjecture — but it is certain that it will continue to have a profound
effect on campus life during its two remaining years at Lebanon Valley.

Vice-President William Miller
Secretary Elizabeth Zimmerman
Treasurer David Miller
freshman Class History
Almost equal in size to last year's record-shattering freshman class, the class of 1951 at first was uncertain
of its social status as freshmen. An abortive attempt on the part of the upperclassmen to revive some of the
defunct freshman rules met with defeat chiefly because the prestige of the veteran was still to be felt among
both freshmen and upperclassmen.
Shortly after the beginning of the school year the class organized and elected Robert Shultz as its president.
For the first time in many years the freshman class was spared the ritual of feigning shock and horror at
the drama of a not-so-secret campus murder.
As a class the freshmen have been at a disadvantage: the stiotlight has continued to focus on the predom-
inantly veteran upper classes.
Because of the fine cooperation on behalf of the male dorm students, the Senate, as a gov-
erning body, was able to "walk softly and carry a big stick" during the '47-'48 term.
Outside of a few minor incidents the male dorm students caused the Senators little concern,
thereby permitting much more freedom to each individual and allowing the Senators to
be freed from the role of "trouble hunters." The faculty gave fine cooperation to the Senate
during the past term, allowing the Senate to do just as it saw fit. By this means, much of the
traditional trivial friction between student and Senate, and in like manner, between Senate
and faculty, was eliminated.
Cooperating with the Jiggerboard, the Senate helped stage the Christmas banquet and
dance. The Senate also supervised the intramural program in football and basketball.
Jiggerboard, the organization referred to occasionally as the "Gestapo," is the Women's
Student Government Association. This group of girls entertains — usually Mondays before
dinner — a chosen few of the freshman girls and others who accidentally (to give them the
benefit of the doubt) break the rules made for them. Friendly, capable, and efficient, this
group corrects all shortcomings after having discovered them. Some of its more pleasant
activities include sponsoring the annual Christmas dance and "Gander Weekend."
Women's Commuters' Council
The duty of the Women's Commuters' Council, or W. C. C. as it is commonly known, is
to generally direct and control the women day-students and to try to solve their problems.
In the fall of the year a mild initiation and a test of the "L" Book were planned by them
for the new freshmen. The initiation was followed by a party for these same young women.
As is the custom, a Christmas party was held in the day-student rooms on December eight-
eenth. The Christmas decorations, put up by the freshmen, greatly added to the spirit of
the affair. Delicious refreshments were served. Christmas presents, which were exchanged
by the girls, were placed under the Christmas tree.
Another party was held on February thirteenth at which time the "Heart Sisters" were
On March fifth the day-students held their annual semi-formal dance in the Spanish Room
of the Hershey Hotel. This was, as usual, one of the high spots on the Lebanon Valley social
Ate/f's Day Student Congress
This governing body is composed of four seniors, four juniors, three sophomores and one
freshman. Its purpose is to promote day students' activities and to act as intermediary in
disputes between the students and the administration. This year the Congress, in cooperation
with the Women's Commuter Council, has held a dance at the Hotel Hershey, run a ping-pong
tournament, held the annual "axe league" and dealt with a number of issues arising from
problems peculiar to the day student. Also, upon obtaining faculty approval, the
Congress has rewritten its constitution so as to enable the students to nominate their own
candidates for election to the Congress.
The attempt to reinstitute freshman rules met with indifferent response from the students.
It is felt by the Congress that one way to engender more school spirit and solidify the freshman
class is to have a freshman program beginning in early fall.
Student faculty Council
The need for a centralized coordinating body on campus has become exceedingly im-
perative. The Student Faculty Council is now laying the foundations to alleviate this con-
dition. With the approval of its new constitution it hopes to do more than serve merely as
a channel to register dates for activities and as a clearing body for suggestions and criti-
cisms from the student body.
The Council is composed of a representative from each organization and three faculty
members. Its officers are Glenn Hall, Pres.; Karl Miller, V. Pres.; Elaine Heilman, Sec; Vir-
ginia Vought, Treas.

The Qitittie, like every other organization on campus this year, has suffered from the general
apathy; however, there are always a faithful few who are willing to work and sacrifice that
a dream might come true. Handicapped by the late elections, the staff, when finally chosen,
set to work with enthusiasm. After a while copy slowly dribbled in, lines began to appear on
blank sheets of paper, and the pile of photographs rose higher and higher. As the hectic
months passed — too quickly so far as getting an infinite amount of things done, too slowly,
inasmuch as the work seemed without end — the enthusiasm was slightly dampened, but
never the determination.
Bill Yingst deserves all possible praise. Not only did he serve as business manager, but
also solicited advertising, and performed many of the duties of an editor. Nancy Meyer is
especially to be commended for her carefully executed drawings, as is Beattie Meiser for her
splendid results with the advertising.
Bob Miller, George Ely, and Marycarol Salzman gave unstintingly of their time to help
with the layout, do an enormous amount of typing, and write some of the articles. Bob Miller
is also responsible for the cartoons. Ronnie Baker proved a very able, cooperative, and hard-
working sports editor, while Martha Miller and Glenn Hall were the mainstays of the writ-
ing staff. Bob McCoy went out of his way to help with photographs and informals during
the last minute rush.
All in all, the staff, though small, accomplished amazing things in the face of difficulties,
including a minor war with the Student-Faculty Council, and deserves the praise and recog-
nition of the student body.
La Vie Collegienne
La Vie Collegienne is put out by a handful of galley slaves whose toil is
never ending and never rewarded. Once a bi-weekly, then a weekly, the
paper's appearances this year have been more or less sporadic, according to
its financial status and the whims of its editors. Lack of funds, and lack of
interest on the part of the students during the second semester constituted
great handicaps for the staff, but it is hoped that matters will improve next

Wig and Buckle
It is to the Wig and Buckle Club that aspiring Thespians turn for outlet of their talents.
Among the younger clubs on campus, it was organized in 1935 and has been increasing in
popularity since its beginning.
Every phase of theater work is afforded to members of the Wig and Buckle Club. Mem-
bership participation in acting, directing, make-up, scenery, properties, or one of the other
activities connected with presentation of a play is required. However, any student interested
in dramatics is invited to club membership and the monthly meetings.
The club presented two one-act plays as part of the entertainment during home-coming
weekend. "Who Killed Me?" and "The Bronze Lady and the Crystal Gentleman" provided
a direct contrast to each other, the first being a serious study, while the second brought much
laughter from the audience.
As its major production for the year the club chose Eugene O'Neill's "Ah, Wilderness,"
which, under the direction of the club's advisor Dr. George G. Struble, was very much
enjoyed by the students
The newcomers to Lebanon Valley's stage along with the tried and true members have
cooperated to complete another year of dramatic activities.
This campus institution holds forth intellectually every month during the school year as,
at the meetings, the roll call moves inexorably on to each member for a reading of his latest
effort, whether his muse has worked or not.
On these Wednesday nights are heard original poems, essays, short stories, and literary
discussions where inspiration is the keynote and preparation is the password.
Criticism, by members, of each other's works, though vigorous and often unrelenting, is
nevertheless impersonal and constructive.
Creative endeavor is made more enjoyable by the informal atmosphere of Dr. Struble's
fireside and the hostess, Mrs. Struble.
Religious Coordinating Council
The Religious Coordinating Council has two duties to perform during the school year.
They are: the coordinating of all Religious activities on the campus, and sponsoring the an-
nual Religious Emphasis Week. The latter of these is the council's outstanding project.
Religious Emphasis Week on the campus is increasing in popularity each year. The council
is doing its best to meet the special needs created by the increase in the college population.
The council depends upon the student body to make its program a plus on campus. It is
one of the few organizations on the campus which, although directed by a few, is run by and
for the many.
It is composed of the following: President, Joseph H. Yeakel; Secretary, Erma Gainor;
Virginia Vought, Roger Keech, Joseph Smith, Alvin Hildebrand.
Philo's hope for a stronger organization has, in part, been realized. At the close of this,
its seventy-ninth year of existence, Phi Lambda Sigma has at last made its long-awaited
Early in the year twenty-two men were initiated into the society. In their honor a hay
ride and a joint dance with its sister society Clio, were staged. One of the year's outstanding
activities was the gala dinner-dance held by Philo and Clio. The affair took place at the New
Brunswick Hotel in Lancaster. Music for the occasion was provided by Johnny Adams' band.
During the year the new constitution was written and presented to the faculty for approval.
Pins and blue sweaters with gold insignia were ordered. The election of next year's officers
was held in April.
With the help of the foothold it has obtained this year, Philo hopes in time to regain its
former position of eminence on the campus.
Clio, observing its 75th anniversary, is theoldestof the women's literary societies. Through-
out many years it has possessed the ancient traditions of Minerva as its patron goddess, and
has retained the owl, the svmbo! of wisdom and the olive branch of unchallenged victory.
Clio's rush week was the scene of many activities. Members and their guests, the freshman
girls, hiked to the banks of the Quittie where they found a delicious lunch awaiting them.
The annual tea held in Clio Hall featured a fashion show which presented a wardrobe es-
pecially designed for the college girl on L. V.'s campus. The models were attired in clothes
for everything from hikes to dances. The hall was beautifully decorated with fall flowers,
leaves, and ivy, while candles on the table lent a romantic atmosphere.
During the past year Clio Hall has been redecorated and the constitution revised. It was
decided that in the future officers will not be changed at the end of each semester, but will be
retained for the entire year. Clionians look back upon the Anniversary dinner dance held
jointlv with Philo at the Hotel Brunswick in Lancaster with pleasant glowing memories.

Kalo is again going strong after the interruption due to the war. Some of the highlights
for the year are: a smoker with Andy Kerr present to show movies of the East- West game,
the Kalo sign at football games (no opposition from Philo), the potential excitement of a
duel with Philo (dramatic of course), and then, the initiation with last year's pledges pre-
siding. Incidentally, they proved to be quite an ingenious group! Night of January 16th,
the play for Kalo-Delphian weekend, brought some new talent on the stage of L. V. C. The
biggest event of the year came in January with the invasion of the campus by Kale's new
idea— L. V. JACKETS, designed by Kalo.
"I want to be a friend of yours, zoom, zoom, and a little bit more." That's the way the
Delphians greeted their "rushes " with a hike to Kreider's, w^here the ceremonial candles
floated obligingly down the Quittie, and a tea, Chinese style, complete to tapestries on the
walls and fans on the curtains. The initiation was a gruesome event, but miracle of miracles,
In March, during the long-planned and awaited anniversary weekend, an audience-jury
gave the Kalo-Delphian cast of Night of January 16th its surprise climax. There are many still
debating that decision. Could a weekend terminate in any better way than in a ballroom
with happy couples in formal attire taking full advantage of the music of Johnnie Eckert?
And so, this year is remembered, not only for its successful social functions, but for the friend-
ships and ideals formed in so doing.

Organized in 1945, the Psychology Club of Lebanon Valley has been ever growing in
strength and scope of activity. Although the club was originally designed for those majoring
in Psychology, anyone professing an interest in this field is welcome to attend and participate
in the monthly meetings. This year the club program included a revision of the constitution,
varied and interesting topics for discussion, and lectures — all pertaining to present day prob-
lems and opportunities in the many different phases of Psychology. In the future it is con-
templated that the club's activities will be supplemented by field trips, and that new books
will be added to the club library.
One of the most active organizations on campus, the Chemistry Club, under the energetic
and capable advisorship of Dr. Bender, provides both entertainment and enlightenment for
its members. Composed of students having an interest in the field of Chemistry, the club
offers them the opportunity of keeping abreast of the latest developments in the chemical
world. In addition to the "news," which is a part of every meeting, movies, guest speakers,
and actual field trips, give the members an inside view of the chemical industries. Through
the policy of having student speakers, the club offers its members the opportunity of gaining
valuable experience in the preparation and presentation of reports.
Student Affiliate Chapter of A. C. S.
On December 6, 1947 a charter was granted by the American Chemical Society to the
Lebanon Valley College Chapter of Student Affiliates. This marked the beginning of the first
organization on campus with national affiliation. The Student Affiliate Chapter is one of the
first places in which persons anticipating a career in Chemistry have the opportunity of work-
ing with those of like training and ambitions, thus starting the development of the profes-
sional side of the student.
Well organized under the direction of Dr. Bender, the Student Affiliate Chapter promises
to become a "must" for those whose interest is "better things for better living through
The Robin Hoods of the powder horn are represented on campus by members of the newly-
formed Rifle Club. The club boasts membership in the National Rifle Association of America.
Members may shoot on any N. R. A. range in the country. Intercollegiate matches are to be
planned and dreams of an indoor range on campus grow with the treasury. The shooting this
year was done at the National Guard indoor range in Lebanon.
Legionnaires of L I/. C
Although less than three years have elapsed since its inception, the campus veterans'
organization, for all intents and purposes, has ceased to exist. This year marked the disso-
lution of the Legionnaires of L. V. C. as an official campus organization, following a waning
of interest which began last year. It is possible that the disinclination of Lebanon Valley
ex-GLs to retain their identity as a campus entity is proof of their complete assimilation into
civilian — and particularly, college — life.
Before its demise the Legionnaires made an abortive attempt to petition the college to
extend the length of this year's summer session to twelve weeks instead of the six weeks
Plans for its annual dinner-dance were abandoned largely because of a dearth of paid-up
memberships. A last-minute fund-raising campaign produced negligible results, and those
who had paid their dues had them returned.
With the closing-out of its accounts, the brief history of the Valley's most exclusive or-
ganization came to its unpublicized end.
This year for the firs: time in a decade, L. V. C. organized a debating society. Rev. Souders,
the advisor, and Frank HufF, student manager worked hard to form some effective machinery
with the hope of a permanent campus organization.
Debating the accepted topic for this year, "Resolved, that a Federal World Government
should be established," the nuclear orators argued with teams representing Elizabethtown,
Lock Haven State Teachers College, Juniata, Albright, and Temple University.
Members of the society alternated positions on the teams in actual debating. In their many
sessions of argument, they managed to eliminate useless ideas and were able to include many
new thoughts in the debates.
In spite of their inexperience, the debaters have shown promise and expect to bring home
a few laurels for L. V. C. in the future.
Life Work Recruits
"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus — " Col. 3: 17.
The Life Work Recruits is one of the religious organizations on campus which carries on
a two-fold purpose. It seeks, first of all, to enrich and stimulate Christian activities within
the group through various religious programs. It endeavors to advance the spiritual atmos-
phere of Lebanon Valley College by a renewing of the mind and heart in the lives of all its
In addition to this, its members reach out to the Evangelical United Brethren Church, and
various other churches in this vicinity, where they send deputations to conduct special
musical numbers and the "spoken word." This service may only be for Sunday morning,
it might be for the entire day, or it might be a service during the week.
The Life Work Recruits have also carried on some social action programs this year. They
conducted a service at the Lebanon County Old People's Home in November and cooperated
with the Y's in a service at the Masonic Homes in Elizabethtown just before the Christmas

y. w. c. A.
The Y. W. C. A. is the outstanding religious group on campus for women. The activities
of the "Y" begin with a week-end retreat, held prior to the opening of school in the Fall,
during which time plans are laid for Freshman Week as well as for the whole school year.
During Freshman Week every effort is made to welcome the new members of our student
body and help them to get acquainted with one another and with the school. Throughout
the year the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. work in cooperation to present weekly Thursday
evening Fellowship Hour and Sunday evening Vesper services. They also sponsor the three
pre-holiday early morning sunrise services. In addition to the religious work the Y. W. co-
ordinates a social and recreational program and helps sponsor the Annual May Day fete. In
the spring the Y. W. C. A. has charge of Heart Sister Week and Mother's Weekend.

"And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."
The Y. M. C. A. has always been a dominant force in college affairs. The Men's "Y"
Cabinet has tried to plan a well-rounded program, physically, morally, and socially on the
Lebanon Valley College campus. Each year it sponsors Dad's Day, keeps the "Y" room in
the Men's Dormitory functioning and cooperates with the Y. W. C. A. and faculty in spon-
soring the activities of Freshman Week as well as various programs throughout the school
year. The " Y " has done its best to create a richer Christian spirit on the campus . The programs
have been geared to the needs of every student, and its aim has been to be a benefit to the
entire student body in every possible way.
freshman "Y" Cabinet
The Freshman "Y" Cabinet consists of members of the Freshman Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A.
who work together as a unit under the guidance of their advisors, Hattie Cook and Harry
Hoffman. They helped to arrange the activities for "Heart Sister Week," "Mother's Week-
end," and "Dad's Day," and took charge of the Vesper Services and Fellowship Programs
assigned to them.
Members of the Cabinet are: Pat Riihiluoma, Florence Dunkleberger, Detty Edelman,
Dorothea Lynn, Jeanne Stine, Nancy Lutz, Miriam Fuller, and Ruth Gluck of the Y. W. C. A.,
and John Heck and Glenn Woods of the Y. M. C. A.
The American Red Cross College Unit provides an organization through which students
are enabled to help to plan and administer their volunteer activities in the community, na-
tional, and international Red Cross programs.
Participation of Lebanon Valley students is under the guidance of the Lebanon chapter
of the Red Cross. Members of the campus unit have gained experience in the development
of a sense of social responsibility through the opportunities they have had for acquiring
skills in planning, participation, and administration of civic activities.
One of the services of the Lebanon Valley unit this year was a class in swimming and
water safety. Members served as instructors for students and others who were interested in
this phase of safety.
An outstanding achievement was the work done for the Veterans' Administration Hospital
in Lebanon. The Conservatory's dance-band and other campus talent cooperated in bringing
entertainment to hospitalized ex-GI's. A number of card-parties were sponsored at the hos-
pital for the patients.
Children at the Jonestown Orphanage were guests at an Easter party held for them by the
The feeling that their work is appreciated by those to whom the Red Cross extends a help-
ing hand will continue to keep the Lebanon Valley College Unit a motivating force for ser-
vice to campus and community.
Appearing for the first time this year, the Radio Workshop is one of hundreds of similar
organizations which have sprung up on college campuses throughout the nation as the result
of the war-proven value of radio — not only as a powerful cultural, educational, and enter-
tainment force, but as a career worthy of the consideration of college graduates.
With thecooperationofStationWLBR in Lebanon, Workshop members have had an oppor-
tunity to study the intricacies of commercial radio through actual broadcasting experiences.
At the time of his enrollment in the Workshop each member is placed in a specialized group
according to his interest in one or more of the manifold aspects of radio production, such as
script-writing, announcing, producing, dramatics, music, or sound-effects. Under the guid-
ance of WLBR staff personnel, and faculty members with radio experience, members are in-
structed in the preparation and production of a variety of types of radio programs.
Although its primary purpose is to provide its members with a practical working-knowl-
edge of radio. Workshop broadcasts have had a secondary effect in bringing Lebanon Valley
College into the homes of the people of nearby communities, thereby further acquainting them
with the college.
Der Deutsche Verein
This year witnessed the rebirth of the Deutsche Verein, which for several years had been
extinct due to World War II. The club is under the able advisorship of Dr. Huth, a new
German professor on L. V.'s campus.
Since the reorganization meeting of the club, the group has sponsored varied activities.
Meetings are held semi-monthly, at which the German language is used in conversation,
German songs are sung, and interesting anecdotes are related by those members, who through
war service, have had the opportunity of visiting Germany.
The outstanding project of the first semester was the presentation of a German Christmas
play. Das Krippenspiel. The cast was well chosen, costuming was extremely realistic, acting
was superb — in short, it was judged an overwhelming success by everyone present. The pro-
ceeds from the play were contributed in their entirety to the World Student Service Fund.
The second semester was devoted to the broadening of the members' appreciation of Ger-
man culture through the medium of several Kaffeeklatschen and other interesting programs.
During the Kaffeeklatschen German phonograph records furnished background music for
German conversation over the coffee cups.
This organization has been the means of renewed interest in German tradition and culture.

The Symphony Orchestra is the most advanced of the instrumental music groups on Leba-
non Valley's campus. Membership in the orchestra is indeed an honor, making any Conservite
swell with pride at this attainment. The Symphony concerts are anticipated by Conservatory
students, alumni, and lovers of good music.
Members are taken from all classes, the criteria of selection being the ability of the student,
and the needs of the orchestra in maintaining well-balanced instrumentation.
The concerts given in the past year, including such compositions as the "Overture to Ober-
on," by Von Weber, and Morton Gould's "Revival," were among the most difficult ever per-
formed by the group. Professor Rutledge's demands for the best from every member, both in
class periods and in long evening rehearsals, seemed to intensify each one's determination to
present a highly successful performance.

The Glee Club deserves much praise, borh for professional-like performances, and for the
beautiful blending of its trained voices. This organization gave programs at Reading, West
Lawn, New Holland, Philadelphia, Allentown, Lykens, and Millersburg, which were in-
cluded in the spring concert tour. The Glee Club was also heard in a Sunday afternoon con-
cert at the Forum in Harrisburg, and was featured in the Spring Music Festival.
The annual tour is a highlight of the year for members of the group, and is packed with
good times (remember Asher and his umbrella?), good food, and good folks. It provides
bull session material for weeks afterward.
A great honor was paid the Glee Club in being chosen to represent Pennsylvania at the
Meeting of the Eastern Division of the National Music Educators Association, which was
held at Scranton, Pa., last spring. "Dry Bones," and all the other fine numbers were met
here, as elsewhere, with enthusiastic approval.
This smart-stepping, streamlined group furnishes a real added attraction at our football
games, and the girls work hard to perfect the colorful drills that are performed. Occasionally
we hear a sour note, but practice (even at 8 a. m.) makes perfect, is their motto.
Under the capable baton of Professor Rutledge, the Girls' Band add that "extra touch"
to all appearances of combined bands.
Worthy of much praise is the precisely-coordinated Marching Band, which enlivens all
our football games. The band provides harmonious and peppy strains for the college rooters,
and at the same time performs the drills with precision. Behind this scene are many hours of
This year under the direction of Bandmaster Rutledge and the twirling Drum Majorette
O'Donnell, the band was better than ever.
The Concert Band, which is supplemented by concert instruments, presents an equally
striking picture in their blue and white uniforms; and their concerts receive much praise
from critical audiences.
The Lebanon Valley College Chorus, which is made up of approximately 100 voices, is
a credit to Professor Rutledge's skilled leadership. The Music Festival performance included
Mendelssohn's oratorio. The Elijah, and was notable for fine interpretation and fervent spirit.
Thursday afternoon rehearsals may feature a Conserv Formal skit, or even a generous
visit from Santa Claus (in the person of Dick Moyer), and are open to all Conservatory stu-
dents and any other interested college students.

With Coach "Andy" Kerr, former Colgate University master mind, at the helm, Lebanon Valley
College experienced its best season in almost ten years, winning five games, losing two, and tying one.
It was a hectic and thrilling season made especially memorable bv its utter unpredictability and topsy-
turvy twists and turns.
Squeaking past Moravian, 21-20, in its opening contest, the Blue and White was resoundingly
thumped 41-0, by Franklin and Marshall, but then went on to chalk up four straight victories,
including a well-deserved and very satisfying triumph over the Albright Lions, 31-7.
The highlight of the season, along with the victory over Albright, was the Dutchmen's sensational
13-7 upset of Scranton University, a team which seemed slated for a bowl bid until disaster struck it
in the form of a Blue and White thunderbolt.
The low-water mark of the year was the 41-0 lacing handed out by the rough-and-ready aggre-
gation of Franklin and Marshall and the stunning 20-6 jolt delivered so neatly by the Juniata Indians;
but the redeeming factor in the whole picture was the acquisition of "Andy" Kerr as head coach and
the thought of his return next year with almost his entire squad. The future appears bright, indeed,
for Lebanon Valley's pigskin warriors.
Brilliant line plav by Captain Paul Mateyak, at tackle, and guards Walt Gage and Bill Keeler featured
the activities of the fast, hard-charging forward wall, while the superb passing, kicking, and general-
ship of quarterback Herb Eckenroth provided the outstanding magic in the backfield as well as kept
the Valley grid machine moving.
Walt Gage, speedy sophomore guard, whose "educated toe" was solely instrumental in one Blue
and White victory, was honored in the All-State selections by being picked for the All-State third team.

Encountering the keenest competition in years, Coach Ralph Mease's "mitey mites" redeemed
what might be called a spotty, although fairly successful season, by their positively colorful and at
times, sensational performances. Off to what seemed like a fine start, the Flying Dutchmen dropped
two games after winning their first two, then won another, floundered and dropped three more straight,
bounced back with an impressive 80-64 victory over Moravian, and went on to conclude a rather
successful but erratic season.
Of the five games that the Mease-men lost early in the season, four of them, with the exception of
the LaSalle debacle, were dropped by a total of only ten points.
Leading the way for the Dutchmen were Captain Rinso Marquette, a veritable whirlwind at guard,
and Flashy Floyd Becker at forward, whose colorful floor play and uncanny shooting highlighted even
the dullest games and worst defeats.
Fine support from Bobby Hess, Hank Dijohnson, and Marsh Gemberling added to the sharp-shoot-
ing of Marquette and Becker, and a plentiful supply of reserves that grew stronger as the season pro-
gressed hold glittering promises for the future.
The low point for the team was its engagement with LaSalle College's crack artists of the court
who dazzled the fans with their brilliant shooting and slippery-smooth passing. Working together
like a well-oiled machine and possessing tremendous height, the LaSalle quintet completely out-
classed the Dutchmen, whose prestige was partially restored by their performance against Moravian.
Playing a free, wide-open style of ball with the accent heavily on offense, the Mease-men outpointed
Moravian's supposedly point specialists, beating them at their own game, 80-64, to distinguish them-
selves for the first time during the year.

Junior Varsity Bas/cetba//
Under the splendid tutelage of Coach Danny Seiverling, Lebanon Valley's Basketball understudies,
the Junior Varsity, chalked up a very successful season with but two losses to mar the record. Playing
a steady, deliberate brand of ball, the Junior Varsity ran up scores that made even the Varsity stand
up and notice them.
Starting at one time or another on the team were Larry Kinsella, George MayhofFer, Charley Zim-
merman, Jack Hoak, Ray Kline, Charley Witman, and Bob Fischer. Kline eventually moved up to
the Varsity and was succeeded by Witman and Fischer, who held down the pivot point alternately.
Although Kinsella and Zimmerman bore the major brunt of the scoring, the team was well-balanced
with everyone proving a potential threat.
With these players and the varsity holdovers, Lebanon Valley's team for the coming season will be
a threat in the Middle Atlantic Conference.

Turning in the best record in baseball in the history of the college, the Lebanon \^alley College
diamond stars posted an impressive eleven victories as against but two defeats for its 1947 season,
as the Blue and White found itself knee-deep in all material except pitchers.
Although handicapped early in the season by the loss of Marsh Gemberling, the Dutchmen's stellar
hurler, Charlie Miller, and Herm Seigel stepped into the breach and filled it in fine form. Handling
the hitting chores were Hank Dijohnson, Al Hildebrand, Rinso Marquette, and "Shorty" Fields.
Coach Ralph Mease's Dutchmen ran into trouble only twice during the season, dropping one game,
8-3, to a very fine Franklin and Marshall outfit, and losing the other one, 8-7, to a scrappy Juniata club.
Composing the first nine were Charlie Miller, Herm Seigel, and Marsh Gemberling, pitchers. Hank
Dijohnson, catcher, Alvin Hildebrand, first base, Rinso Marquette, second base, Bobby Hess, short-
stop, Jim McGraw, third base, and Floyd Becker, "Shorty" Fields, and Walt Gage in the outfield.

The "L" Club is composed of athletes who have received their letters from the Director of Athletics
in one of the three major varsity sports. In order to be eligible for membership a sports participant
must meet the requirements set up by the Athletic Council for a varsity letter award. He automatically
becomes an "L" Club member upon receipt of this award.
The main function of the "L" Club is to raise money to purchase sweaters for its members. It is
one organization that solicits no money from its members. The group works as a whole to build up
its award fund.
This past year the Club had charge of the football programs and by this medium raised enough
money to meet all expenses. On November 15 the annual Homecoming Dance was held in the Ann-
ville High School Gym, and in early May the annual "L" Club dinner was held, at which time senior
awards were presented to the following graduating athletes: Benny Penturelli, Herb Eckenroth, Jim
McGraw, PeteGamber, Marsh Gemberling, and "Rinso" Marquette.

The candidates who reported for the 1947 hockey season consisted of a few experienced upper-
classmen, and several willing but inexperienced freshmen. The prospects for the season looked glum,
but the new^ and capable coach ordered persistent practice and gave excellent advice which resulted
in a semi-successful season.
In the first game of the season the girls suffered a defeat at the hands of their opponents. Profiting
by the mistakes made in the first game, they were victorious in their second encounter. After having
had their first taste of victory, the girls began playing as a powerful unit, and at the close of the season
the team had won two and lost three games.

The 1947-1948 girls' intercollegiate basketball season could be classed by the onlooker as a very
poor one. However, the spirit and enthusiasm which made the girls stick by the team in the face of
many defeats, compensated for the lack of victories. The characteristics of true sportsmanship and
sheer enjoyment of the game were displayed by everyone who participated in the sport.
Intra-mural basketball gave all girls who were interested in basketball a chance to display their
ability and also to earn those needed athletic points.
Here's hoping next year's basketball team will show as much spirit and enthusiasm as their pre-

Women's Athletic Association
The Women's Athletic Association consists of the girls on campus who are interested in sports,
and who have displayed this interest by earning the required number of athletic points for membership.
Founded in 1937, the W.A.A. has come to be one of the largest women's organizations on campus.
Under the capable advisorship of the new physical education instructor, Mrs. Drescher, a program of
varied indoor and outdoor sports and activities has been introduced. Doris Hyman, a popular and very
enthusiastic senior, was its able and well-liked president.
During the past year the W. A. A. sponsored "Club 13, " a night club dance, held on Friday, Feb-
ruary 13, in Annville High gym. That evening will be remembered as one of the most entertaining
of the year. The association also sponsors two hikes throughout the year, the spring hike being the
annual initiation hike at which time new members are taken into the organization.

After three hard years of planning and perspiration, one dream of the not-so-long-ago-organized
Cheerleaders has at last been realized: new uniforms. To that they — and they hope the whole student
body — say Hallelujah! This year, for more practical functioning, the squad has been cut down. Plans
are being made to set seven — three boys and four girls — as the official number, with a freshman squad
trained in the fall to replace any outgoing members.
Those in the Senior Class agree that this year the spirit and support of the student body have in-
creased immeasurably. For a while they were nearly discouraged . . . but who ever heard of Cheer-
leaders being discouraged?
"Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges" is a nation-wide honor organization to which,
every year, ten seniors from Lebanon Valley College may be elected. This year's outstanding seniors
are: Melvyn R. Bowman, Mary Jane Eckert, Mary Elizabeth Frank, Nancy Elaine Heilman, Theodore
D. Keller, George Reynolds Marquette, Thomas J. Schaak, Virginia M. Vought, Rhoda Mae Ziegler,
and Robert A. Zimmerman.
Representatives are chosen from both the College and the Conservatory. Selection is made not
, only on the basis of scholarship, but also for service rendered to the school in the campus activities
and all honor and social organizations of which the student may be a member. One of the features
of the organization is the Student Placement Service, through which the students are recommended
to American employers who are seeking capable college graduates to fill positions.

for the afternoon. However by noon the sun shone through and the May Day program went on as
Set in a background of riotous color the pageant of King Richard and Robin Hood was enhanced

as maid of honor, made their appearance. For the first time the identity of the Queen and her court
had been kept secret until shortly before the proceedings. The Queen and court presided over the Swan
Lake ballet as interpreted by Miss Jesse Haag, producer, director, and choreographer for the program.
The impressive and colorful may pole dance followed by the recessional comprised by the entire cast
concluded the ceremonies.
The crowning of Queen Pearl bv Robert Zimmerman as King Richard, the lively fencing match,
gay antics of the tumbling clowns, and thrilling archery contest with John Henry Light as Robin
Hood will remain as highlights to a successful May Day — 1947-
