' ■J ' " t j? ?? - DR. FREDERICK B. McKAY His amiable disposition has won for him the devotion and friendship of all those with whom he came in contact. As fo ' mer head of the Department of Speech at Michigan Normal and sponsor of forensic activities, he was a constant source of inspiration to all those associated with him. Under his capable and ingenious leadership, AURORA staffs for the past six years have created year- books to be remembered by all. In appreciation of his tireless energies, steadfast purposes, and constant assistance, we dedicate this volume to Dr. Frederick B. McKay. P resident John M. Munson In 1933 John M. Munson, well qualified as an executive, returned to his alma mater, Mich- igan State Normal College, to become pres- ident. That the campus of this college has grown in size and beauty is attributable to the tireless and unceasing efforts of President Munson. FHis guidance and steady influence through these tumultous days has continued to keep for Michigan Normal the reputation of being one of the finest teachers ' colleges in this country. It is through his tireless interest that Michigan State Normal College is looking forward to new horizons in the peace to come. RDminisTPnTion With victory in sight, and a feeling of expectancy and tension in the air, it remains for our president, the deans, and the registrar to guide us through this quickening pace and to preserve the true calm and dignity of Michigan State Normal College. In the stately building, famil- iarly referred to by the students as the " Ad. Building " , lie the offices of the governing body where the needs of every individual on the campus are handled with equal care and consider- ation. Willingly offering their time and assistance are the faculty and the officers of the student administration groups. As We See Them AdmirLLstrative Officers It is in the administrative offices that the guidance and advisory affairs of all students are taken care of. With problems of straightening out program difficulties and scholastic progress e consult E. R. Isbell, Dean of Administration and C. P. Steimie, Registrar. Our respective deans, Dean of Women, Susan B. - , Dean of Men, James M. Brown, and Acting Dean of Men Elton Rynearson, help with our social and employment problems. Not only do they deal with the present stu- dent body, but also with those Normal students who have entered the service of our country. Both the Dean of Administration and the Dean of Men put forth tireless effort to keep in con- tact with these former students. It is only when we stop to consider the work involved in this department that we realize its tremendous value. Top to Bottom: Isbell, Steimie, Brown, Rynearson. Left to Right: Hill, Farnham. Klng—GoodisorL Heads Miss Morton, Mrs. Corr Miss Carson, Mrs. Baltzer. Put two hundred sixty girls into dormitories built for half that number with a third roommate bunking on the upper deck — result — a bedlam. Lights blazed far into the night as girls played just one more hand of bridge. Add snow parties, cabarets, and midnight snacks together — the sum is dormitory life per usual. The essence of our democracy is the house council composed of the girls representatives. Working with Miss Carson and Mrs. Baltzer, head resident and assistant respectively were,- Cheryl Steiner, president; Jean Bailes, vice- president and hHelen Rahm, secretary-treasurer. In King Hall Pauline Fisher, president; Mary Corsi, vice-president and Mary Bauer, sec- retary-treasurer orked with Miss Morton, head resident and Mrs. Carr assistant head resident. Bauer, Fisher, Eisenmann, Corsi. Willis, Rahm, Steiner, Bailes. Munson Heads Not to be outdone by the women on campus the Munson Men — shout out your numbers loud and strong — held a Christmas party — the first of its kind, that literally set the campus buzzing. The parties were big splashes. The checker tournament culminated in the awarding of the 100-year-old " Little Brown Jug " to Bob Euler. In addition there were chess and ping pong matches. To stimulate social activities, and assist in dormitory discipline, the Mun- son Hall Council was organized. The men are represented by Dick Gabriel, president; Sanford Silsby, secre tary- treasurer,- Bill Wilson, sports director,- Don Carlson, Dick Ross, and hienry Gillam. Mr. and Mrs. Gildenstein are the head residents. Upper Right: Mr. and Mrs. Gildenstein Top to Bottom: Gabriel, Euler, Logan Tlie New Dea Dorm Council DORM DIETICIAN With greater quantities of food on the ration listand many products unobtainable, the maxim, " Food Fights for Freedom " , takes on a greater meaning. The strength of a nation in war is dependent upon the health of that nation. By a skillful maneuvering of ration points, Mrs. Elliot, director of the residence halls, has maintained the high standard of feeding and serving the dormitories. Elliot Beerbower, Sno «, Bowen. McKENNY HALL The " Union " maintaining the true meaning of the v ord is the social center of the campus. Here students gather for " mixers ' , all- college parties, club and sorority meetings, all of which make up a vast social program. Miss Frances Forn- ham and Miss Myra Gratton have efficiently managed Charles McKenny hiall to make it truly our " College Home " . HEALTH RESIDENCE Located at the eastern end of the campus is the modern well equipped hHealth Residence. Dr. Glenadine Snow and her small but efficient staff are there to give students needed medical service. Familiar to most students are the heat and light treatments, physical examinations, and other services willingly offered by the staff. Gratton, Farnham Faculty LIBRARY Second Row: Litter, Bates Rosentreter, Cleveringa. First Row: Milliman, M., Andrews, Trabilcox, Milliman, D. During final exam " and term-paper time the library is o continual beehive of feverish ac- tivity on the part of students. Students are constontly searching among the reference books and periodicals for a little more information. Of great value to early elementary students is the collection of children ' s text-books on the second floor. The library staff, headed by Miss Elsie V. Andrews and v ell trained assistants, is alv ays ready and willing to help bewildered students. The speech department staff, though small in number, is nonetheless great in importance. To Dr. J. P. Kelly and Marion F. Stowe, oral interpretation and poise in public speaking remain still a necessity. The responsibility of training and coaching ' amoteurish freshmen in their public speaking and poetry reading is one that is grave indeed. Courses in public speaking and interpretative reading taught by these enthusiastic instructors have enabled Michigan Normal Students to enter inter- collegiate contests in debating, extemporaneous speaking, and in poetry and prose reading. SPEECH Stowe, Kelly ■. i| f - s " Sf ' " m Hh 1 K K ' " ' ENGLISH Second Row: Cooper, Sanders, Super, Wal- cutt, Barnes, Miserez. First Row: Hagle, Eckert, Magoon, Carey, Bal- lew. The ultimate aim of the department of Enghsh is the understanding and appreciation of hter- ature. Coupled with this is the goal of being able to express one ' s self clearly and concisely. In the rooms of Old Welch hiall. Professor Gerald Sanders heads a staff proficient in teaching courses ranging from Old English and Chaucer to courses in contemporary literature. Excellent period courses and courses in Amer- ican Literature are available to the English major. The required rhetoric course furnishes Ji ' rm foundation for more advanced courses in English Grammar and Creative Writing. In building an everlasting peace and better relations w ith nations of the world, it is essential that we reach them on the basis of their lan- guage. We can develop a genuine interest and enthusiasm for understanding their customs and ways of living. Language students will hove a great respon- sibility in reconstruction work of war-torn countries. The language department, under the direction of Mrs. Sobourin, inculcates in the students an understanding and appreciation of foreign language. Courses are taught in German, French, Spanish, Latin and Greek. Case, Wolfe, Owens, Sabourin, Magoon. LANGUAGE 10 SOCIAL SCIENCE Second Row: Engelsman, Alden, Waugh, Blacker- burg. First Row: Warren, Eric- son, Thomson, Fager- strom, Devol, Hubbell, Field. The Global war In which ' e ore engaged places a new stress on a knowledge of geog- raphy. Names of far av ay, apparently in- significant places loom into importance in head- lines. The staff of the geography department headed by Dr. James Glasgow is alert to all geographic changes affecting the environment and life of peoples of the land. The geography department instructs its students in v hy, where, and how people live. Of no small importance is the help it gives to students in interpreting the world news. Liberal education is based on an understand- ing of modern institutions and the forces v hich make up society. This knowledge cannot be built up unless we know how our institutions were evolved. This is the important work done by Dr. Simon E. Fagerstrom, head of the hHistory Department and his colleagues. Courses are taught covering the many phases of American History, Europe and the Far East, Economics and Sociology. Recently introduced were many courses in Sociology enabling students to obtain a Socio- logy major on a pre-professionol course. Glasgow, Hoy, Sill GEOGRAPHY 11 CHEMISTRY Brundage, Sellers. PHYSICS Elliot, Smith. Everyday ne A and important problems orise in the Field of chemistry. Perhaps this depart- ment is most prone to realize the new develop- ments because of progress of chemical v arfore. In the peace to come there will be more out- standing and far-reaching advances in chem- istry. Trained and specialized chemists ore in great demand today. Dr. hlorry S. Brundage, head of the department and Dr. Sellers inculcate in their students the need for accurate and detailed observations in their laboratory experi- ments. Chemistry labs are filled with Bunson burners, test tubes, and the odors of chemical reaction. The physics department, headed by Dr. Horry Smith, teaches courses in the mechanics of heat, light, and sound,- flight astronomy; and laws explaining the phenomenon of the physical world. Students spend half their time learning the theories and the application of them. The remainder of the time is spent in the laboratory applying these principles and observing the results. Aware of the stress put on physics in modern warfare now, the faculty of this department impresses upon the students the even greater part that physics will play in the post-war era. 12 Mathematics are on integral part of our everyday life in addition to being indispensible to studies in physics and chemistry. Opportun- ities in our industrial development depend upon mathematics. More and more students realize the value of higher mathematics in an education. Courses in Analytical Geometry, Integral Calculus, and Trigonometry ore taught by Dr. Theodore Lindquist, head of the Mathematics Department, and his helpers. Business and insurance mathematics are taught for commercial majors to acquaint them with some of the brain tvA isters that confront the commercial world. hHardly a day goes by that every student doesn ' t feel the need for a greater knowledge of nature. The Natural Science department has well equipped laboratories to enable students to observe many phases of natural life. Stu- dents spend many hours, collecting, drawing, mounting specimens and observing under the microscope. Students taking courses in An- atomy, Zoology, Botany, Geology, and many other courses are taught the importance of natural science in our daily lives, by observing accurately natural life. Dr. Loesell heads this group of scientists. MATH Erickson,Schneclcenburger, Lindquist. NATURAL SCIENCE Best, Curtis, Loesell, Hick- man, Sturgeon. 13 ART Svvete, McAllister, Gill. An interesting place to spend a leisurely afternoon is the second Floor of the Ad. building, where the Art classes are taught. Fascinating exhibits of the work of classes in Life-sketching, blackboard drawing, commercial design, sculpturing and painting ore displayed. Rooms are filled with posters and murals done under the supervision of Professor Orlo M. Gill and his talented department staff. Classes in art appreciation are taught to Early Elementary students,- even students who are not art majors find these classes profitable and enjoyable. A trip past Pease Auditorium enables the student to locate the musicians on the campus. Professor Haydn M. Morgan, and the staff of the Conservatory of Music, prepare students for the Public School Music course, and for the Band and Orchestra courses. Music majors ore taught how to develop the various phases of music in the public school system. Equally as valuable to the future school teacher is the training received in the Choir. Throughout the year the Choir, Orchestra, and Band have given fine concerts which have served a two-fold purpose: providing musical enjoyment to concert-goers and valuable help to the musician. MUSIC Second Row: Morgan, Wlian, Lindegren, Ash- by, Fitch. First Row; McLellan, Wolff, Skinner, James. 14 COMMERCIAL Herrick, Springman. With the tremendous amount oF bookkeeping required to keep our armed forces properly supphed and equipped, people with trained business minds are greatly in demand. In this capocity commercial students have an important place in the winning of this war. The Commercial Department, supervised by Professor John Springman, trains commercial students in typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, business, economics, and many other subjects. Every student on the campus becomes familiar with this department through the handwriting course, hich students ore required to take before graduation. To introduce and train students into the many phases of home-making and home-management is the duty of the hHome Economics department under the fine direction of Miss Estelle Bauch. Presented to hHome Ec s are courses in meal planning, nutrition, food-buying, preparation, cooking, selection of materials, and making of clothing. A real test of the girl ' s knowledge of home- making is the one semester that all home eco- nomics majors must spend in the practice house. hHere girls have a chance to try out all the various subjects included under hlome Eco- nomics. HOME ECONOMICS Underbrink, Kelly, Bauch. 15 Industrial Art courses aren ' t all shavings and sa A dust as is shown in the exhibits of the Indus- trial Art Department. The creative genius, perfection, end artistic ability inherent in stu- dents is developed by the Industrial Arts depart- ment headed by Professor George A. Willough- by. In the changing and progressive trends in education, industrial arts is taking a greater place in the school curriculum. Students in this department realize the importance of their work in the public school curriculum. Appealing and practical courses ore taught in metal work, household mechanics, mechanical drawing, and other types of handiwork. The Physical Education Department, one of the most popular departments on campus, has a tremendous job. it aims not only to prepare students to be physical education teachers but also to provide every student with relaxation for study-tired and cramped muscles. Training in such sports as basketball, ping pong, volley ball, soccer, hockey, swimming, tennis, badminton, dancing, and community recreation activities are all part of the program of building sound bodies. Professor Joseph H. McCulloch heads the popular, energetic physical education depart- ment. Miss Ruth L. Boughner is director of the women ' s division. INDUSTRIAL ARTS Second row: Gildenstein, Willoughby, Chamber- lain, Turnbull First Row: Morrison, Hat- ton PHYSICAL EDUCATION Second Row: Marshall, Samson, Rynearson, Stites, McCulloch. First Row: Vossler, Bat- schelet, Boughner, - ar- ris. 16 RURAL EDUCATION Slovens, Savage, Smith, SPECIAL EDUCATION Second Row: Gildenstein, Hetmansperger, Mor- rison, K. Becker, Olds, Gates, Roser, Lord. First Row: Taylor, Swart- wood, M. Miller, Bentley, Bunger, Ring- man. Because of the crying need of teachers in rural schools, the department of Rural Education faces added responsibilities. The work of the rural school teacher is indeed an important one. hie is not only required to teach such courses as history, geography, arithmetic, reading, spell- ing, music, and many others to various schools grades, but he must also be a combination of recreational director and school supervisor. Realizing the work involved, this department has presented as many and varied experiences as possible to its students, so they will be equipped to handle all situations that arise. The fine laboratory school, named for hHorace hd. Rackham, houses the department of Special Education, headed by Dr. Francis E. Lord, and its equally important division, Occupational Therapy. Students in these two fields will play on increasingly important role in rehabilitation work during and following the war. Instructors at Rackham School not only teach college classes but also instruct the handicapped children in courses such as sight saving, speech reading and work with exceptional children. This laboratory school gives the student valu- able aid in teaching special classes. 17 LINCOLN Third Row: Pfeiffer, Rug- gles, Miller, Turner, Beal, Brown, Sulenta, Sveda, Mink, Turnbull, Cripps. Second Row: Brink, Becker, Roscoe, Martin, Fuer- stein, Austin, O ' Connor, Laing, Kirschbaum, Tow, Kiddoo, Kusterer, Binns. Third Row: Bruce, Studt, Savage, Van Ameyde, Munson, Vanden Belt, Dunning, Perrine, Butler, Laing. A short ride on the college bus to the Lincoln Consolidated School Finds the senior trans- formed into a teacher. One of the two labor- atory schools for M.S.N.C. students, it provides true situations in the training of future teachers. A r. Ben hi. Vanden Belt is the supervisor of this school, which serves a rural community, with grades from the first to the twelfth. A great duty is placed on the teachers in a democracy. The essence of a functioning democracy is an extensive educational system. During the war and the peace to follow, the duty of the teacher is a national one. Principal Leonard Menzi and the faculty of critic teachers, realizing this duty, direct pros- pective teachers in the art of great teaching. 18 EDUCATION Smith, Kelder, Garrison, Skinner, Marshall. In a college such as Michigan State Normal the Education department is most significant for the future teacher. This department, headed by Dr. Noble L. Garrison, instructs students in the principles of teaching, tests and measurements, the history of education, educational psychology, and public education in Michigan. Very important to the senior is the placement bureau headed by Dr. Leslie A. Butler. Through this bureau students are assigned to their practice teaching, a laboratory where they test their theories. Mr. Butler holds bi- Vi eekly critic meetings where constructive criticism is given to student teachers. APPLYING THOSE PRINCIPLES 19 In MenrLorlam EDITH ADAMS On March 3, Michigan State Normal College sadly recorded the death of Edith Adams, supervisor and critic teacher in the Kindergarten Department of Michigan State Normal College. Miss Adams was recognized as a teacher of rare understanding. Each child absorbed and applied in his own work her deep interest and sense of responsibility. She received her training at Michigan State Normal College, from which she was graduated, she also received an honorary degree at Miss Wheelock ' s Kindergarten Training School in Boston. In addition she studied kindergarten methods for several months in Europe ELIZABETH C. McCRICKETT Miss McCrickett shall be remembered for carrying the torch for public kindergarten education and for her long years of loyal service at Michigan State Normal College. The training that she gave to many teachers in elementary education and her many lectures will keep alive her ideals. Hers was a life of service until her death in November 1944. Miss McCrickett did pioneer work in the Northern Peninsula and was an instructor at the Normal University, Los Vegas. She taught English for six years at Detroit University. In 1911 she came to Michigan State Normal College to become supervisor of training in the third grade, a position she held until her retire- ment in June, 1942. 20 21 Student AdnrLLnlstratLon. Travis Gillie Melick Everett Women ' s League Jean Gillie, President The Women ' s League is the college women ' s own governing body. Every woman on campus automatically becomes a member v hen she registers. Directed this year by its president, Jean Gillie, it took over definite campus problems and undertook to solve them in on efficient and constructive ' A ' ay. It is the organ- ization in back of all campus activities that makes them run smoothly and successfully. Jean was ably backed by her vice-president, Mary Ann Melick, v ho was also chairman of the Advisory Board. Betty Everett took charge of the secre- tarial duties, while Emily " Toot " Travis v as custodian of the treasury. During wartime on extra demand has been made upon the League. Red Cross work has been stressed, and various other irregular services hove been extended. Social events such as the hiarvest Hop and the Sunday Nite Supper for the January seniors were promoted by our women in office. This year all of our college vi omen who worked in connection v ith the League may take pride in what they have done as their bit toward the war effort and the college spirit. 22 League Executive Board To seek out the opinions end sentiments of the women students, to moke the desired decision, that is the duty of the League Executive Board. Since it has such o vast field to cover, its v ork is divided into two sections, the chairman of the sundry committees, and the members-at-lorge. Gertrude Wallace, in charge of assemblies, supplied programs of vital interest to women on campus. Director of Campus Sister activities, Pauline Pringnitz, helped the newcomers get the right start. General head in charge of clubs was Grace Riemenschneider, stressing war service activities for all. Always vital is the election committee, led this year by Jean Black. Jean Bailes was chief overseer of the news publicity, while art supervisor was Margaret . " Mouse " Gelow. Alberta Piazza headed the Service Committee. Margaret Kelly represented our local residents, and Ethel Pink and Jean Willis representatives from King and Goodison respectively. The Members-at-large worked along side the committee chairmen in hunting out college opinion and devising plans for improvement. These were Jean Black, Pauline Fisher, Yasuko Fujiki, FHelen Mueckler, and Ceil Valley. Third Row: Bailes, KenField, Holland, Kuhn, Piazza, Fisher, Fujiki. Second Row: Valley, Gelow, Steiner, Wallace, Pink, Mueckler, Riemenschneider, Preketes, Ellis, Kelly. First Row: Willis, Everett, Melick, Gillie, Travis, Black, Hayes. 23 League Advisory Board Second Row: Fry, Cahill, Rahm, Gehring, House. First Row: Van Nest, Davis, Mglick, Harding, Schweinfurth. The League Advisory Board is the council which deals with those women who infringe upon the rules of the League. As Vice-Pres- ident of the Women ' s League, Mary Ann Melick presides over this body, assisted by Linda Fry, hHazel hHording, Kathryn Gehring, Betty Cahill, Wilmo Schweinfurth, Betty Van Nest, Carol House, Jane Davis, hHelen Rahm, and Helen Nipcrko. The violator meets this board on a Wednesday evening to state her case. After a just hearing, this court hands out its decision in writing to the Dean of Women ' s office where the defendent con learn the outcome on the following Friday. Since the rules of the college are well-known by oil college women, they believe that the punishment delivered by the Board is entirely just and also necessary for a democratic way of government. Aside from its functionings as a court of hear- ings and decisions, the Advisory Board passed opinion on the regulations and laws set up by the Executive Board. The secondary dormitory councils are informed of all changes in rules and cooperate as a unit with the Board to avoid irregularities of verdict. The attitude with which the women carry out their duties as policemen is determined, yet considerate,- and the punishment, therefore, is generally taken with the spirit of I deserved it,- it won ' t happen again. " 24 The League Lends a Hand More than ever the Wo- men of MS.N C. have con- tributed to the service program sponsored by the Women ' s League. Realiz- ing the near end of the v ar all possible time and effort have been spent to aid this great day. Grace Riemen- schneider, general chairman guided Mary Bauer, Red Cross; Janice Bills, Nursery School,- Ann Gill, Gilbert hHouse; Irene Saterstad, Rackham School; Marise Tabor, Carver House; Sybil Showers, Girl Scouts; in their respective duties. Aside from these services, the cultural interests of our college women were token care of by Catherine Acker- man, who secured out- standing books for the League lending library, and by Barbara Keller, who ob- tained theatre and concert tickets for upper class wo- men at a special reduced rate. 25 Men ' s Union Arthur Aldridge Gabriel OFFICERS James Aldridge The Men ' s Union is the organization that governs the men here on campus. The Union, as its head department, has an Executive Board which wields an authority not to be ignored by our fellows, reduced in number though they be. In spite of the loss of many of the Normal men to the armed services during the past few years, the Men s Union has continued to function in as efficient a manner as possible, cooperating with the various organizations on the campus by putting over social functions as well as other projects and activities. James Aldridge, otherwi se known as " Stubby, " led his Union buddies, while Jerry Arthur backed him up in the office of Vice-president. Chief secretarial duties were executed in the best pen and ink fashion by Dick Gabriel. Ralph Kwiatkowski was caretaker of the funds and recorder of the Union ' s financial condition. 26 Union Executive Board McAllister, Loveland, Bonner, Black. Swing that paddle, Jim! Though small in numbers, the Men ' s Union functioned smoothly and effectively through its Executive Board. Guided by Dean " Bingo " Brown, it made as strong a stand as possible under the curtailed enrollment. At the annual men s freshmen assembly the A ' earing of the green pots was declared a " must, " or the Thursday night Swing Session " would be in order. Not to be forgotten was the Spring Breeze carried off in great style by the men of the Normal. The Board is made up of four members, one from each class. This year the Seniors had as their delegate, hlugh Loveland; the Juniors, Walt Bonner,- the Sophomores, Jim McAllister; and the lowly Frosh, Jim Black. 27 Union. Uses Ingenuity Adapt at meeting the present-day campus situation of draft-depleted ranks, tfie Men ' s Union carried on its activities with the tradi- tional Michigan Normal force and fervor. Early in the fall, the MUGS introduced the nev members to their conventions and pro- cedures by advising the " Wearing of the green. ' The Freshmen soon learned that a misstep on their part led to the zestful " Swing Session " where the power and the force of the MUGS were definitely felt. Upholding their leader- ship in campus affairs, they produced an out- standing Spring Breeze. Assemblies, athletic movies, and sport talks kept the fellows busy throughout the year. Though less represented, the vigor of the Men ' s Union is ever-present at M.S.N.C. 28 Social Committee Liddicoatt, Millar, Holland, Dohm, Rahm, Kuhn. The main responsibility of providing relaxa- tion for students fiod fallen to the Social Com- mittee. Advised by Dean hiill, its Social Direc- tor, the All-College Social Committee com- posed of Barbara hlolland, president, Lucille Kuhn, Secretary, Margaret Dohm, Mary Alice Liddicoatt, Jean Millar, Genie Morse, and hHelen Rahm, sponsored activities to relieve the tension of these days. Frequent " At hHomes, ' provided informal dancing, card-playing and recordings, creating a genera ' homelike at- mosphere. The gala Christmas Party added sparkle to the holiday season, with its fortune tellers, artists, games, and dancing. The tradi- tional Costume Party where participants for prizes come dressed as book, movie, or song titles added much to the calendar. Well remembered was the Chuck Wagon Picnic held m the Spring. Aside from initiating and sponsoring all- college events, the Social Committee stood ready to cooperate with other organizations in the promotion of their activities. It is to an organization such as our All- College Social Committee that we owe much of our college spirit, which is so hard to main- tain during war years. 29 Realizing that a greater responsibility is resting on the shoulders of fewer members, each class is putting forth tireless effort to uphold its standards. The Senior knows that the problems he is about to face are more vital than those met by the Seniors of the past. The Junior has an increasing awareness of the responsibilities of the ensu- ing year. The Sophomore has acquired an appreciation of the opportunities presented by our various service programs. The Freshman has quickly acclimated himself to his new environment, and follo ' wed the noteworthy example of the upperclassmen. Seniors Off icers: Adams, Fisher, McLarty, Gelow.

It is the purpose of the various clubs and orgonizations on the campus to bring together at periodic meetings those stu- dents who have like ideals, interests and abilities. Whatever the desire — a striving for common goals, the joining together on the basis of good fellowship, or a conven- ing to practice similar skills — this necessary portion of campus living is presented in the various programs and opportunities pro- vided by these groups. i ormal The bi-weekly rush toward the West entrance of Pierce hHall was proof to editor Jean Block and her staff that their efforts on the Normal News were not in vain — that the evenings spent typing, rewriting, proof-reading and transporting copy to the print shop were really appreciated after all. Though rather limited this year, the staff of the paper worked cleverly and efficiently meeting deadlines — usually. They ferreted out news of campus affairs, wrote timely features and even produced clever poems at times. Campus guys and gals read and clipped the News and wondered, as in years past: " Who writes grief n gossip? " As a new feature this year, copies of the Normal News were sent to a more complete list of appreciative hHurons in the service. JEAN BLACK, Editor, Dillon, Greenwell, Boiles, Schram, Buckberry, Kelly, Hovel. 58 Colkgc Mt ii Every other week, Merton Dillon, Business Manager, and his small ' — but efficient — staff, consisting chiefly of his sister, Mary Dillon, campaigned about town for advertisements to fill up the white space at the bottom of the six column newspaper and, incidentally, to finance the paper. Paying bills, calming irate subscribers who cursed the circulation manager, stopping and starting subscriptions, sorting back issues, collecting from local merchants, and keeping detailed accounts: these were the activities that occupied the business manager and his staff. In addition to maintaining the paper on a financially even keel, the business staff likevv ise did its share of writing copy and reading proof.

Plans began last summer with engraving, printing, and cover people. With the opening of school, the staff was chosen and work began on fac- ulty, class, and club pictures. Kay Frey and her assistants diligently created the murals. Photographers Hood, hHowe, and Murdock cleverly " shot ' campus activities. Kay worked out cover details. Lay-outs became real as dead- lines were met. Check, check, and triple check were made on copy. Throughout Professor Gill, the newly appointed advisor for the Aurora, worked side by side with the staff to meet problems of covers, film shortages, and earlier deadlines. Now it is yours. Another war- time annual has been assembled and finally placed in your hands. Despite anxiety over war short- ages and priorities, the loyal efforts of the staff have produced a symbol of the spirit on our campus, 1945.

Pi Kappa Delta is a national honorary forensic society that was founded in 1913 and at present has over 19,000 members. Its purpose is " to stimulate progress in, and to promote the interests of intercollegiate oratory, debate, and other public speaking. " Only students who have participated in intercollegiate debates, oratory, or extemporaneous speaking are elig- ible for membership. The Michigan Epsilon Chapter was instituted on our campus in 1921. On June third, 1944, the college and community joined Pi Kappa Delta in a dinner to honor Dr. Frederick B. Mc- Kay on his retirement. He had been sponsor of our chapter for twenty-three years. He was a teacher and friend to all the students,- he was beloved by all who knew him. This year, under the sponsorship of Dr. Joseph P. Kelly, the calendar opened with a never-to- be-forgotten chicken dinner and party. The annual initiation and honors dinner brought events to a close in May. Students qualifying for membership in Pi Kappa Delta were Jean Smith, Pauline Fisher, Joan Schrepper, and George Mitchell. 62 Second Row: Smith, Paynter, Fisher, Flaxington. First Row: Mitchell, Riehl, Kelly, Holland, Euler. Mixed Debate Mixed debates were permitted again this year by the Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League. Members of the Michigan State Normal squad, who represented the college in the annual intercollegiate speech tournament held at Michigan State College on February 17, were Borbra hHolland, Pauline Fisher, George Mitchell, and Joyce Riehl. The debate topic is chosen each year for all colleges which have chapters of Pi Kappa Delta, Tau Kappa Alpha, and Delta Sigma Rho, the three honorary forensic societies in our country, by a committee representing these societies and the National Association oP Teachers of Speech. The proposition for this yeor was: Resolved that the Federal Govern- ment should enact legislation requiring the settlement of all labor disputes by compulsory arbitration when voluntary means of settlement have failed, constitutionally conceded. In the tournament, the Michigan State Normal squad debated against Michigan State, Western Michigan College of Education, Wayne, and Central Michigan College of Education. Dr. Joseph P. Kelly is the debate coach. 63 Orators and Speakers Schrepper Smith Fisher The State oratory contest was held on our campus on March 9. The Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League Luncheon meeting was attended by Alma, Albion, Calvin, Central Michigan College of Education, hHope, Michigan State, Western Michigan College of Education, Wayne, and Michigan State Normal. In the after- noon, separate preliminary contests were held for men and women. A dinner in the evening honored Dr. Frederick B. McKay on his retirement from service in the M.I.S.L. Professor Seymour Swets of Calvin College talked on " Reminiscences. ' A twelve volume set of books titled Development of American Thought was presented to Dr. McKay by the League. Joan Schrepper from Michigan State Normal won first in the women s finals. The title of her oration was " stabat Mater. " John Steensma of Calvin College won first place in the men s finals, hlis oration was titled " What Does It Matter? " The State Extemporaneous Speech Contest was held on our campus on December 1. The topics were from two main questions: " Should We Have Universal Military Training After the War? " and " What Should Be the Post-War Treatment of Germany and Japan? " Jean Smith represented our college. The topic she drew was " Do We Need an International Military Force? " Dennis Sullivan of Western Michigan College of Education won first place. The winner of the freshman public speaking contest in the fall was Kimiko Fujimoto who spoke on " Freedom For Christmas. Doris Koyes won the freshman poetry contest. hJer selection was " I Grieve Not That Ripe Knowledge, " by James Russell Lowell. The twelfth Annual State Interpretative Reading Contest spons- ored by the M.I.S.L. was held at Albion College on May 5, 1945. Nine colleges were represented. The students representing Michigan State Normal College were Joan Schrepper in the poetry division, and Pauline Fisher in the prose division. Miss Schrepper tied Wayne for first place thus maintaining a twelve year record of placing M.S.N.C. in the evening festival. Fler selections were: " Faults " by Sara Teasdale, and " Steel " by Joseph Auslauder, for the afternoon contest. For the festival she selected " The Walker " by Arturo Giovanniti. Miss Fisher, the alternate for poetry, entered the prose contest. The book chosen was Antoine De Saint-Exupery ' s The Little Prince.

Kappa Delta Pi, the second largest honorary society in the world, is the goal of every prospective teacher. Since its establishment here in 1922, Pi Chapter has given to the college many services, not the least of which has been the raising of a generous loan fund through efforts of loyal student and faculty members. During the current year, the chapter, besides sponsoring its annual banquet, tea, the alumni breakfast, and a mock-interview meeting, presented several valuable informal discussions of which perhaps the best remembered was the Howard Blackenburg definition of Liberal Education. 65 Third Row: Dillon, Baumann, Kelly, Steimie, Carlson, Allan, Kuhn, Kwiatowski.

Stuart Lathers and a group of students decided that they should meet together informally to discuss current campus and world-wide topics. These meetings became so important to them that they wanted to carry these as a tradition for future students. As a result each year. Sophomores with a high scholastic achievement, initiative, and general helpfulness in campus activities are admitted into the Stoic Society. Each year, students v ho are worthy receive ten scholarships from the funds of this organiza- tion. Mary Bauer, Jerre hialladay, Marise Tabor, and Neil McLarty were the recipients for this year ' s awards. 66 — -ninmn unjiriirrii r, C io V and Orchestra CHOIR Beatrice Adams Doris Andrews Sally Ball Marion Barrowcliff Atho Bennett Evelyn Bircholl Merrelyn Bird Frances Biggs Phyllis Bower Devonne Branstetter Andrea Burke Elizabeth Buswell Irma Butcher Jean Butler Phoebe Butterfield Ardis Cabot Marion Capron Norene Cook Mary Casey Sally Davis Mary DeChantal Viola De Lanois Eloise Duriez Mary Edgar Valerie Edvs ards Beverly Eurek Elizabeth Everett Madeline Falahee Norma Foulkner Alta Gable Reno Gillespie Mildred Gingell Elizabeth Glass Patricia Graham Doris Greenwell Virginia Herbst Dorothy h ighstreet Nancy Holshoy Nancy Hopper WilJogene Hotchkiss Carol House Joan House Neva Jones Doris Kays Lois Kennedy Margaret Ketchman Ruthann Kortier Ruth Kuhlman Dorothy Leng Mary Lou Ruth Layman Nancy Le ark Alice Lindsay Joyce Mclntyre Joyce McKeatchie Doris McNabb Ullen Mills Winifred Netcher Janet Olson Rosalie Osgood Barbara Parish Patricia Peitz Phyllis Perkins Ruth Peters Betty Petredean Blanche Pettit Delphine Pleski Loree Presnell Pauline Pringnitz Gene Purdy Rebecca Horger Audrey Haycock Donna Hennigar Mary Ann Scafosci Ernestine Schattenhein Patricia Shear Marion Shimp Sybil Showers Jean Siterlet June Small Mary Smith Virginia Smith Dorothy Spicer Kathryn Stabile ORCHESTRA Sandra Riopelle Marjorie Rogers Mable Rowlson Marion Stark Marjorie Sturmon Barbara Teeple Beverly Thomas Mary Tull Ruth Wesson Mary Wilbur Patricia Wilson Jean Willis Lois Wiseman Margaret Zick Evelyn Austin Sally Ball Phoebe Butterfield Donald Carlson Mary Jane Casey Hugh Cooper Mary Edgar Valerie Edwards Cynthia Everett Margaret Everett Elizabeth Green Glenadine Haas Dorothy Highstreet Elaine Hunt Franzi Isbell Jean Karlin Johnson Nathan Jones Clarence Kemp Dorothy Laing H.

' With this encourogement the College Choir of ninet ' -eight members meets at Pease Auditorium every Tuesday and Thursday night at 6:45 p.m. Under the direction of hiaydn Morgan the girls spent many hours studying and singing some of the best compositions in the field of choral literature. That their efforts were not in vain was proved by the suc- cessful programs they gave during the year. At the annual Christmas concert on December 7, the choir feotvred Margaret Petredean, soprano, and Mary Alice Liddicoott, violinist. The choir worked jointly with the College Orchestra in presenting the annual Palm Sunday concert March 25, the Spring concert May 10, and in providing music during Commencement Week. Vocal groups for the year consisted of two girls ' ensem- bles. The girls were selected from the choir because of their musical ability. They song for various college and community functions during the year. The orchestra had a year of achievement under the capable direction of William Fitch, who came to Michigan State Normal College this year after having taught at Kansas State College and the University of Michigan. In addition to the above concerts in conjunction with the choir, the orchestra gave a series of Sunday afternoon concerts. Singing or playing, harmony reigns at the meetings of the Music Club. Social activities were also enjoyed at their monthly meetings. Activities were led by Donald Carlson, pres.; Marion Capron, vice-pres.,- Virginia Smith, sec ' y.-treas.

Pan-hfellenic decides the policies of the sororities, fixes the dates of the events of the rushing season, regulates other activities involv- ing all sororities, and encourages the sororities to take an active part in college functions. Instead of the individual sorority teas that hove usually been the first official rushing parties of the season, a joint formal tea was sponsored under the auspices of Pan-hHellenic. The Education h our, which precedes each rushing season, is another activity sponsored by Pon-hHellenic. At the Scholarship Dessert in the Spring, Pan- FHeiienic presents its scholarship to a local sorority girl which rotes high in scholastic achievement and leadership.

Alpha Slgnna Tau Highlighting this year ' s activities for the Alpha Sigs were active participation in the League Service Program, two successful rushing seasons, and informal gatherings of the members. The Alpha Sigs were proud of the fact that one of their Seniors, Joyce Riehl, received a State Board Scholarship. June Kellner received recognition for her outstanding League Service at Rackham School. Our national president, Mrs. H. E. Staehle of Columbus, Ohio, who visited Ypsilanti, was impressed with the fine work the Alphas weredoing in League Work, in campus affairs, and in the growth of the chapter during the last four years. Social Service plays a prominent part in the Alpha ' s activities. Besides Red Cross donations and other work, a generous allowance was set aside for the W.S.S.F.,- clothing, toys, and games were col- lected during the year to be sent to the Pine Mountain Settlement for needy children. The Alpha Sigs are looking forward to getting together early this summer for a v eek of fun and recreation at camp. 78 ALPHA CHAPTER OFFICERS BETTILOU ROTH BARBARA KELLER .

Delta Sigma Epsdon Community service, war work, and fun kept the Eta Chapter busy and happy this year. In spite of all the extra curriculor work, the girls didn t neglect their classes, and like true Delta Sigs managed to keep on top in everything. They divided their time betv een Community houses. Training centers, and Nursery schools in connection with the Women ' s League Service Program. Many led girl scout troops,- while others served in the motor mechanics corps. War bonds were purchased, and salvage was collected to be used in government hospitals for occupational therapy. The S. S. Delta Sig was the theme of the informal party given during the fall rushing season. It rivaled the second informal Movie Studio party for the most successful one of the year. Living on in the memory of all the members is the fall week-end that was crowded with a hayride, a weiner roost in Sleep hdollow, a football game in Ann Arbor, the College Treasure hHunt and in- formal visiting. This has been a happy and successful year for Delta Sigs. 80 ETA CHAPTER OFFICERS BETTY VAN NEST JEAN BLACK JANE DAVIS JEAN CAMERON MARILYN BYRNES President Vice-President Recording-Secretary Corresponding-Secretary Treasurer FACULTY ADVISOR Miss Chloe Todd PATRONESSES Mrs. J.

Tketa Lambda Sigma Success has again marked the Theto year. Since the Thetas have a group estabhshed for social purposes, many activities spotted the calendar, including Friday night suppers at McKenny, and two auspicious rushing seasons. Who will forget the one ring circus, complete with elephants, tumblers, and a rousing band? Gaining recognition is the Theta Inn, and a buffet supper which climaxed rushing season. Long to be remembered are the Mother ' s Day Luncheon at the Cojntry Club, theAlumiae Lunchaon at McKenny hiall, and the final party, the Senior Farewell. Not to be overlooked is the service program carried on by the girls. Each one contributed her share to the W.S.S.F. Another donation was given to the Red Cross. Gifts were sent to the wounded veterans at Percy Jones FHospital. Welcomed back from overseas duty with the A.R.C, was Mrs. B. Lewis, formerly Gene- vieve Fox.

This was our 50th anniversary year. To help us commemorate this occasion, we have had visits from distinguished alumnae. A tea was held for Mrs. Myra Bird Bowen and Mrs. Bertha Ronan, our founders, who visited us in January. Mrs. Ruth Neidig, Pres. of A.E.S. and Pres. of the National Council of Pi Kappa Sigma soror- ities, Mrs. Julius Season, and Mrs. Ruth Lerch came in March for an active day with us which included a luncheon and a tea. Even though the war has affected sorority life. Pi Kappa Sigma has been active in campus life. Red Cross Activities, and social affairs-. Bridge parties, a sleigh ride, theater party, a Mothers ' Day Banquet and many other hours of fun together have given us many happy memories of 1945. 84 ALPHA CHAPTER OFFICERS ALBERTA PIAZZA MADELINE WINNER DOROTHY TERHUNE ANITA COOPER .

Instead of the annual formal dance given in previous years, the alumnae chapter in Detroit entertai ned the Alpha chapter with a dinner at Frame ' s and a stage play at the Cass Theatre. Also, picnics, skating, Christmas, and rushing parties have made the year an unforgettable one. Educational functions of the year included talks on etiquette and personality and lessons in bridge playing given by our patroness, Mrs. E. J. Rynearson, and dancing instructions by Miss Augusta hiarris, our faculty advisor. Sigma Nu ' s service work has been proficient. Christmas packages were sent to the soldiers of the Percy Jones hHospital,- sweaters and socks were knit for the Red Cross,- frequent visits were made at the Blood Bank. The alumnae chapter purchased artificial limbs for soldiers of the Percy Jones h ospital. We are looking forward to another successful year. 86 ALPHA CHAPTER OFFICERS CATHERINE BARON President VIRGINIA RENAUD Vice-President CAROLYN PREKETES Secretary FRANCES JEANNE Treasurer FACULTY ADVISOR PATRONESS Miss Augusta Harris ACTIVE MEMBERS Mrs. E.

Blood donations, hours at the nursery schools, community centers, and Girl Scout troops showed Sigma ' s willingness to serve. In support of national projects, Tri-Sigmos sent gifts to the wounded nurses at a Denver hHospitol. Each Sigma will long remember the fall weiner roast, the spagh- etti supper, the Christmas party, the tea given by the patronesses, the marvelous January week-end at White Lodge, theatre parties, and spring picnics. Outstanding events were the two successful rushing seasons, the Christmas Sing with Sigma ' s traditional " Twos the Night Before Christmas, " the official alumna visit of Lucille Morrison of the Notional Council, the Founders Day celebrotion, and lastly, the Senior Farewell where secret sisters were discovered and good- byes said. 88 OMICRON CHAPTER OFFICERS MARION COWARD CEIL VALLEY LOIS CHALMERS .

At the start of school the Athletic Dept. found its hands tied when it looked around for material for a football team. Not being able to find the necessary men, football was canceled. When It came to basketball things were a little brighter, hiere it got the " Go " sign. This year Mr. Rynearson took over the coaching job assisted by Bob hiarvey. At the start of practice it looked very promising for the cagers so a tough schedule was made up including State, U. of D., and Wayne. Only four upperclassmen — Copt. Dick Ga- briel, John Shadford, Charles Opie, and hlugh Loveland took part. The remainder being fresh- men, made up the bulk of the team. None of the regulars were over six feet, but before the sea- son was very for along the team lost four of the starting five players. Freshmen Jim Miller, Ralph Bullis, and Bob Geddis joined the Army, while Dick Gabriel dropped out because of physical reasons. Later on the team lost Dale Reid At this point Coach hHarvey became the player coach. The team that finished the sea- son v os one that lacked the ability needed to win in college, but it did have fight. The boys always gave their all, but it just wasn t enough to in. There v ere two players ith plenty of ability m Bob Harvey and Bob Bently. hHarvey aver- aged about 14 points a game: Bently about 11 . Schefler, Beebe, Klempp, Shadford, Opie, and Heusel alternated as the re- mainder of the regulars. 93 At the beginning of the semes- ter it was doubtful whether M.S.N.C. would be able to have a baseball team. But along with good spring weather, came pros- pects for a good team. Practice was started early in the gym, and soon moved to the field house. Five former lettermen returned to the squad; the remainder con- sisting of freshmen or players who had become eligible. Returning lettermen were Charles Opie, John Shodford, FHugh Loveland, Bob hiarvey and Dick Gabriel. Prospects for baseball looked good for the Hurons. Coach Mc- Culloch declared that Gabriel and Harvey would form one of the best batteries in the state. The remainder of the team was groomed from boys with high school or sandlot experience. These were hHank Gillam, Len Sweet, Bob Multhelar, George Mitchell, Bob Schaffer, Bill Havel, Len Logan, and Bill Wilson. With a pretty strong team in the offing, a tough schedule was prepared. Games were booked with Michigan State, U. of Detroit Wayne, and Romulus. Meanwhile games with U. of M. and other service teams are in the making, depending upon the outcome of the team. As this book goes to press, it remains to be seen just how well the Hurons will do. The boys have hod a lot of fight and spirit in their practice, and we are confident of a successful year for the team. 94 Baseball I ' f ' .. •«M » §fe : =Sflrt; Left to right: Havel, Schaffer, Shadford, Gabriel, Opie, Multhaler, McCulloch, Logan, Gillam, Mitchell, Sweet, hiarvey, Loveland.

First Row: Scott, Crouch, Miss Botschelet, Travis, Schvi einfurth, Hughes. W. A. A. Spring camp, as a leadership training course, and as final big event climaxed a highly success- ful year for the W.A.A. Without the guidance of Miss Botschelet and the cooperation of the students, this would have been impossible. To sponsor intramural sports for women, to offer a varied program of activity to all women on the campus, to cooperate with the Men s Intramural program in providing opportunities for co-recreational activities — that is the pur- pose of the Women ' s Athletic Association. The year 1944-1945 has been a busy one for the W.S.S. Board, composed of President, Emily Travis; First Semester, Vice-President; Second Semester, Vice-President, Wilmo Schweinfurth; Secretary, Barbara Crouch; Recorder, Morion Hughes. This year ' s successful and inclusive intramural program was divided into four seasons: fall season, hockey and archery; first winter season, volleyball, swimming, fencing, and badminton; second winter season, basketball, ping-pong, and swimming; spring season, outing, softball, tennis, and swimming. Each year " M " letters ore awarded to those active members who have completed three seasons of sport participation. Also, on honor award of an " M " pin is given the outstanding junior and senior woman most active in W.A.A. A new feature In the award system will be the presentation of the " Victory Cup " to the dormitory totaling the greatest number of team championships. All of these awards are presented at the Annual Banquet vv hich takes place In the late spring. 96 Gordon Jeanne Scott Harrison Copp Bush Mossor VanNest Miss Batschelet Schweinfurth Dcvis Siddcll Travis Manning Hughes GiNie Crouch Fall Season. A familiar sight on a fall after- noon was to see girls racing toward tfie atfiietic field wearing shin guards and carrying hockey sticks. When they arrived at their destination, you could see girls running up and do n the field. They were getting " warmed up " for a game of field hockey. This year, under the cap- able management of Betty Van Nest, the hockey season came through with flying colors. The team from Goodi- son Hall won the tournament. Archery, the other fall sport, also hod a large turnout. Through the diligent work of Pat hiarrison, several girls learned to hit the ' bull ' s eye. " This contest was individual- istic. Soccer was available as a side light. HOCKEY ARCHERY SOCCER 98 1st winter Season VOLLEYBALL FENCING BADMINTON Volleyball proved to be o very successful season with Betty Manning OS capable manager and out- standing enthusiast. The tournament was on by King Dormitory. This was followed by fencing; everyone " lunged into it with the usual enthusiasm. Frances Jeanne, as manager, stimulated a lot of interest so that those participating had a " piercing good time. W.A.A, Badminton held its usual interest under Janet Copp s compe- tent leadership as manager. Many a night the gym was filled with crys of fervor over a good " drop shot " . The follo ' A ' ing were winners of the finals: Jean Pearen, singles,- Thurley Fdipple and Jean Pearen, doubles. 99 2n.d Winter Season An enthusiastic basketball season competently managed by Mary Mos- scr was a huge success. A double elimination tournament was con- ducted. The winner of the " A tournament was Pat Murphy ' s team from Goodison. The " B " tournament was won by a King Team with Cynthis Everett as captain. Jane Davis as Ping Pong manager put new life into this sport. Many nights were spent watching a swift game when contestants battled for top honors. Swimming club, the Niades, was another success. Patricia Siddall, who acted as manager, did a fine tob. The club activity was divided )etween form and rhythmic swim- ming. BASKETBALL PING PONG SWIMMING 100 Spring Season TENNIS SOFBALL OUTING In spring a young girl ' s fancy turns to thoughts of W.A.A. outdoor sports. " Willie " Schweinfurth per- formed on excellent service in run- ning the Softball tournament, when King and Goodison competed. Tennis offered many girls the op- portunity to display their talent. Jean Gordon supervised the elimination tournament. Betty Scott carried out o successful season of outing. The girls spent many hours enjoying nature through hikes, cookouts, and other outdoor activities. These three sports marked the termination of another successful year for the Women ' s Athletic Associa- tion. 101 Impressed upon the minds of all will be the years spent at M.S.N.C. Approaching the first days as timid freshmen until that last walk up the steps of Pease Auditorium as dignified seniors. The teas, parties, weekends and a million things to do -the sports, school spirit, pep rallies, gala Christmas fortnight, serenading in the court, picnics and spring in Sleepy hHollow — missed by all of those who have post- poned their college days until a later date. All the little things that hove happened — all the good times enjoyed — mount up until that last final farewell. Abblter, Paul - Navy Allord, Franklin E.
