The book you are about to read is more than a collection of pretty pictures and pert prose; more than a history of graduating seniors, their campus homes, organizations and activities. The Ferriscope does, of necessity, include these portions of student life. Over and above this, however, it is hoped that everyone who has been at Ferris Institute will find some facet of their life here reflected and that the book will recall poignant memo es. IN RETROSPECT Getting to know you Orientation Week Sunday, September 14, saw a host of new faces descend upon the F. l. campus, as the freshmen arrived with luggage and parents in tow. After be- ing welcomed graciously by their resident odviso housemothers, and orientation leaders, , . rust profuse and diffuse regulatio ' 0 their eager hands, they were gentl -. urted to their new living quarters. Wit- . os grimly clutching regulations, Iugg-o- ond parents in tow, they then affected a omewhut hurried settling down. Then, after bidding goodbye to parents and prom- ising to study hard and get plenty of sleep, they were once more welcomed to the campus, this time by President Spathelf in the new Student Center. Following this official welcome then returned to their dorms for the evening, tired but excited over the prospects of their adventure concerning the big modern campus and the many new and interesting people they had met. After a series of tests, physicals and drained pocket- books, the spirit of the tired but undetected fresh- men was invigorated by a weekend of dances, parties, and new found friendships. " 'nxx ! ' rm? ..- r Just a chat session Ringing of the Homecoming Bell Festivities for the Thirtieth Annual Homecoming began with the student body casting their vote for their favorite queen candidate on October 15 and 16. At the homecoming assembly the morning of October 17, Joan Ecclesine, JoAnn Giroux, Marcie Harmon, Connie Lewis, and Bonnie Peacock were announced as the five finalists in the homecoming program queen competition.

Reigning Royalty - Miss Bonnie Peacock Each one a queen. The evening festivities began with the traditional ringing of the Phi Sigma Chi victory bell. As the crowds gathered in the stands of Top Taggert Field the enthusiasm was invigorated by the pep rally contests. A new event introduced this year was a hula hoop contest, which proved to be very ex- hausting but left the crowds in rollicking laughter. After the queen candidates were driven by the stands in luxurious sports cars, President Spathelf an- nounced Miss Bonnie Peacock, the candidate of Delta Tau Epsilon, a omecoming queen. This was fol- lowed - . roaring onfire and the burning in ef -y of the College 0 inois team. The snake dance progressed from the otbull field to the annual Alpha Phi Beta all sch- dance in the dome room. Hollywood, here I come. We never stagger, we never fall. The remainder of Friday and the early hours of Saturday were consumed in the frenzied final pre- paration of homecoming floats and displays. In many cases the paint was hardly dry when it came time for the second annual pushcart derby and the homecoming parade. The annual gridiron tussle was fought between the Ferris Institute "Bulldogs" 4:-I BXUEW: IN and the Illinois "Blueboys."

As the couples and guests of honor, Dr. and Mrs. Korlis Kczerovskis and Mr. and Mrs. James Hintze,. danced to the soft, smooth music of Danny Baker and i 3' his orchestra, the Dome Room was transformed into a silver and white winter wonderland.

Miss Judi Dence was selected by members and facul- ty advisors of the fraternity from a field of five beau- ties to reign as the first Sweetheart of Kappa Psi. Judging was on the basis of beauty, personality, poise, grooming, and scholastic ability. After being crowned by the Dean of Pharmacy, Miss Dence ens ioyed the first dance with Warren Covington.

However it turned out to be only snow statues built by campus organizations competing for top honors in Kappa Sigma Kappa's Secohd Annual Snow Carnival. Although it hampered construction on the statues, the sub-zero weather failed to dampen the spirit of the students. Tons of snow and hundreds of man- hours went into these creations. Phi Sigma Chi, closely pressed by Omega Tau Omega, emerged victorious in the fraternity competi- tion for the second successive year with their creation "Moonscape". Among the sororities, Theta Tau Omega took top honors. In other areas of compe- tition Club 501, Carlisle Hall, and the Crimson and Gold Chorus entered the winners circle.

Kampus The "great white way" is transported to Ferris In- stitute for an evening each spring term as the cam- pus enioys its annual expedition into the world of show business. Kampus Kapers is the occasion. K. K. is produced by a Kampus Kapers Committee composed of representatives from the competing or- ganizations. Eligibility for entry extends to any recognized campus organization but, in the past eight years, only fraternities and sororities have pur- ticipated in the competition. Each participant pre- sents an eight minute show, traditionally top notch. Judging is done by qualified people drawn from various fields such as radio, television, eddcation, ad- ministration, and business. The coveted first-pluce trophy revolves unless an or- ganization is successful in capturing it for three con- secutive years at which time it becomes their perma- nent possession. The 1958 winner was Phi Sigma Chi fraternity with an original, musical show called "Life and Laziness." Kapers Each year the acts become more spectacular . . . each year scenery is more elaborate; dances are sharper; voices are clearer; but also each year the acts do become bigger and better, moving ever closer to professional perfection . . . and in so do- ing, develop the skills of direction and performance in the performers and provide exceptionally fine en- tertainment for the observers.

Formerly known as I. F. C. Sing, the name and competitive field were expanded to include both fraternities and sororities. Many hours of preparation precede this song fest and at the final outcome, a truly fine program of choral selections is presented. A panel of iudges, well-trained in musical matters, iudge the organiza- tions on selection of material, originality of perform- ance, and quality of staging. In 1958 the fraternity trophy was presented to Phi Sigma Chi, and the sorority trophy to Sigma Kappa Sigma. Greek sing is open to the public and is a non-profit performance. It is only one of the many events of Greek Week that helps to further the aims and ob- iectives of the fraternal system through mutual co- operation and efforts between the participating or- ganizations. 15 voices and a song The third of they was the date and the Big Rapids Armory was the place. The event? A "Japanese Holiday!" Donning kimonos and Oriental fans, the Freshman Pharmic class presented the student body of Ferris with one of the most outstanding events of the spring, the 32nd Annual Pharmic Ball. The Freshman Class officers and their advisor, Dr. Lloyd Poland, took charge of the affair, and, as in the past, six candidates for Phormic Ball Queen were chosen and voted upon by the student body. Fin- ally selected to reign as;queen of the spring ball was Marilyn Taylor, who was sponsored by Delta Tau Epsilon Fraternity. Dean of Pharmacy, Dr. Edward P. Clause, crowned the lovely queen in a ceremony which climaxed a successful evening. Those low, sweet mellow tones. Kw aL . sew. Pharmic Ball Candidate Miss Marilyn Taylor, a pharmic, was chosen Pharmic Bull Queen. Graduation Ball The climax of the 1957-58 social calendar at Ferris Institute was the first annual Graduation Ball, spon- sored by Sigma Alpha Delta Fraternity. It was Ferris' first strictly formal ball and was met with enthusiasm by all who attended. White dinner iackets and formal dresses were the attire for the evening as Brahm Ward and his ten piece orchestra provided the background music in the enchanting setting of the new Dome Room of the Student Center. President Spathelf and the department deans were the guests of honor and were seated at the guest table adjacent to the dance floor. In addition there were tables for the guests to enioy punch and hor- d'oeuvres on the sun porch and in side lounges should they tire of dancing or preferred to meet with friends. The highlight of the evening was the coronation of the "Queen of the Ball". Six contestants were sponsored by different organizations on the campus and TV personality Steve Allen through photographs sub- mitted to him in New York ruled as iudge. He report- ed that it was not on easy choice, but selected what he believed to be the most worthy candidate. After the introduction of the contestants and a word from President Spathelf, the big moment arrived and Grace Keller was crowned the Queen of the Ball; The dance was aclaimed a great success and another step in the transition of Ferris from a "have not school" to a college that can compete with any, both scholastically and socially. Coming years hold the promise of even finer events although this was truly a night to remember.

Graduation In proof that perserverance and faith shall triumph, the culmination of classes and study at Ferris Insti- tute came for the class of '58 on June 14th. Altho a long awaited event, its arrival brought mixed emotions for the impact of a four year campus environment is great. Each hopes that far more than a diploma had been gained from the college. Each one is also aware that the educa- tional process is ended but new books, new ideas, new people, and new adiustments lay ahead for all to meet. The traditional ritual of graduation with its proces- sion of honored guests, alumni, college officials, faculty, and seniors was an impressive spectacle; a symbolic ritual further emphasizing this proud mo- ment of tribute to those who met the challenge of higher education. vmwoado 1884-1959 t A gracious smile . . .

Yet, depending on one's position, this is 1he glad or sad situation found on our campus. Such a situation would prove catastrophic were it not for one salient factor. That factor is class, for what Ferris Institute lacks in quantity is off set by quality. To prove this point the Torch has chosen samples.

Spathelf 1952 - Dedicated to the ideals of opportunity and industry, Ferris Institute strives to instill in every student a thirst for knowledge, a desire for personal better- ment, and an understanding of our democratic so- ciety. To the degree that these ideals are assimilated, the men and women of Ferris are ready to meet the problem of an unstable world. In this hour of chal- lenge, the lamp of learning must burn ever bright- er, in the minds of "democratic" people; for we have no other choice. 31 President Dr. Victor F. Spathelf FERRIS INSTITUTE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT Big Rapids, Michigan March 25, 1959 This year's publication of the Ferriscope is privileged to be identified with our Seventy-fifth Anniver sary observance. We who comprise the Ferris community today, whether this be as students or as staff members, have an unusual perspective from which to view the developments leading to this important year. For us today, Ferris Institute is a place of vibrant activity. We are enthused with the many evidences of growth and effectiveness of the college whether these be of intangible or tangible nature. We are moved by a surging sense of challenge to the great opportunity of service which lies before us and, indeed, by the magnitude of the task of higher education of which we are a part, in years ahead. But our vantage point of perspective also clearly delineates the import of the original concept of a Ferris Institute and the philosophy which nurtured this idea in a creative fashion as W. N. Ferris and his wife carried forward the development of the school. The life work of these people has stood the acid test of seventy-five years of valued service. We can view with objectivity and appreciation the dedicated work of successive generations of faculty members, administrative officers, board members, friends and supporters of the school. Today's attainments could only be built on this base of human resources and their valued work. I have for purpo se of emphasis held the reference to students of today and yesteryear to last. These have been woven into the fabric of the se many years in an inseparable way. You are the reason Ferris Institute exists. At one point you are learners, at another point, you, too, are builders--builders of vital experiences which become a part of the Ferris tradition. Now, those who have gone before you are alumni of unusual loyalty, whose enthusiasm and support of their Alma Mater is a stimulating and assuring fact. These ranks you will one day join. I know I express for all of you a single, common thought--It is good to be a part of Ferris Institute in this Seventy-fifth Anniversary Year! Since 1' e 1y, Mr. Charles E. Fairman Mrs. Bess E. Fishman Board of Control The legislation which made Ferris Institute a state college in 1950 provided for an eight member Board of Control to look after the affairs of the college. It is this group of master craftsmen, who have guided the destiny of Ferris Institute in the last of its dynamic 75 years, and made our college a jewel worthy of its Diamond Anniversary setting. Members of the Board are: The Honorable Raymond W. Starr, Chairman; Lawrence W. Prakken, Vice- Chairman; Charles E. Fairman; Mrs. Bess E. Fishman; Eugene A. Ward; Judge William J. Miller; and Dr. Russell B. Nye. The eighth appointive member of the Board of Control was Col. Roy C. Vandercook, who died in February 1958. At the time the Ferriscope went to press, the governor had not yet appointed a replace- ment for Col. Vandercook.

Its establishment recognizes one of the most recent trends in higher education; that of providing specific training in two- year programs for recognized professional occupa- tions of an industrial and technical nature. Although only three years old, the Collegiate Tech- nical Terminal Division has a student body of over 150 students enrolled in the six programs: Industrial Chemistry, Commercial Art, Dental Office Assist- ant, Physicians Office Assistant, Environmental Semi- tation, and Surveying and Topographical Drafting. Ferris Institute, from its beginning, offered intensive training for the technical professions of industry, business and Science. The Collegiate Technical 3 Terminal Division is continuing this tradition and will expand its educational opportunites to other oc- cupational areas where there is a need for compe- tently trained persons.

The Commerce Division at Ferris has had the largest enrollment of any di- vision for the past several years. Several new de- gree and non-degree programs have been added to the Commerce program of studies in recent years. There are twelve distinct curriculums offered by the Commerce Division. There are 973 Commerce majors enrolled in these various curriculums. Six are degree programs, three are two year programs of study, and three are one year terminal programs. The largest area is marketing. The fastest growing area has been the B. S. in Business Administration degree with a 300cVo growth in the past two years. The Commerce Division has 23 faculty members with Dr. Stephen J. Turille serving as Dean of Com- merce. Co-operative internship is now in effect in the accounting, the marketing, and the teacher edu- cation departments. This allows students to receive real, live, practical experience in co-operative train- ing of their chosen field in their senior year. The work is carefully co-ordinated by Commerce faculty members with business firms and public schools. There are several active clubs in the Commerce Di- vision which cover all the maior areas of study. The Commerce Division at Ferris has graduated hundreds of competent business men and leaders. It looks forward to continued public service in its vari- ous fields. Thank you Doctor. 9? After teaching and administrative service in five college and university campuses, Dr. Stephen J.

His doctorate dissertation won the award in Chicago as the out- standing study in the nation for that year. Deon Turille, a man with a dynamic, energetic per- sonality, is always courteous to the never-ending stream of students, faculty, and parents, who keep his office one of the busiest at Ferris. In spite of the continuous demand he somehow found time to institute a number of changes which were beneficial to the Commerce Division. The accounting program has been strengthened, a new advisory committee in marketing added, the teaching program has been recognized by the national teachers organization, and the staff has been expanded thus permitting C O T ' ' more of the listed courses in the catalog to be of- ooperatlve ralnlng fered for the first time.

' , General Education The program of general education and pre-profes- sional training for students at Ferris was initiated in 1895 when instructional offerings were organized as distinct courses of study. Later this idea was given a more distinct form, when, in 1933, a Junior Cole lege and Pre-Professional School was organized as a part of Ferris Institute. This, however, was later incorporated into the lower-division programs of the Commerce and Pharmacy Divisions. As F-l grew it became clear that a separate unit was mandatory to: Ht provide students, regardless of course of study, the opportunity to enroll in cul- turally enriching general education courses and at to provide the student with the basic Foundation courses needed to enter a professional school. Pre- sent day developments and accepted practice in higher education gave support to the decision to or- Dr. James V.

Ed. degree at Superior State College. He earned the M. A. and Ph. D. degrees at the State Univer- sity of Iowa, completing his graduate studies in 1948. Before World War II he taught science and mothe- matic5' in public and private schools in Wisconsin and Missouri. Since World War II he has served as Assistant Principal and Director of Guidance, Uni- versity High School, State University of Iowa; and Chairman of Science in the Department of Teaching, Iowa State Teachers College. For the seven years prior to his arrival at Ferris, he was employed as a Civilian Educator in Headquarters Air University, Montgomery, Alabama. Dr. Farrell has served as chairman of the Science Teaching Section of the Iowa Academy of Science. He was chairman of the Education Committee for the Iowa Mid-Century Conference on Children and Youth, and was a delegate from Iowa to the White House Mid-Century Conference on Children and Youth, Washington, D. C. in the dormitories, and through the cultural activities presented by the school for the students, In 1893, less a decade after the establishment of Ferris Institute, the first Pharmacy students were enrolled to prepare for the Michigan Board of Pharmacy examinations and subsequently to become registered as licensed pharmacists. Through the succeeding years this early preparatory course has gradually evolved into the modern four-year cur- riculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science of Pharmacy. Graduates of the Ferris Institute Division of Pharmacy are qualified to assume positions in rendering public health services to their communities. Pharmaceuticai education emphasizes both professional and commer- cial aspects and enables students to meet the present and future demands of their profession. Although the curriculum is constructed with particular emphasis on training retail pharmacists, many of the graduates use this training in sales-service opportunities for pharmaceutical manufacturers, in analytical positions in pharmaceutical production and control, and in re- sponsible positions in hospital pharmacies. The type of instruction received in the Pharmacy Division per- mits the graduates to continue post-groduate edu- cation, resulting in careers in teaching or in industrial research. Education in Pharmacy at Ferris Institute offers unlimited opportunities and rewarding and varied experiences to both men and women. g; g 21W W m: gig w exam . A Dr. Edward P.

A course in Linotype setting. One of the modern buildings which typifies the pre- sent day Ferris campus is the Trade and Industrial Center. This building encompasses 75,000 square feet of floor space on ground level. It was built and equipped at a cost of $1,450,000 in 1957 and presently houses classrooms and laboratories for 14 of the i6 trade-technical courses which are currently offered at Ferris. Students who enroll in the Trade and industrial Division may receive instruction along with labora- tory-type practical experience in each of the trade oriented programs. Highly qualified and experienced trade instructors conduct classes in the areas of Architectural Drafting; Auto Body Repair and Painting; Auto Machine Shop; Automotive Service; Heavy Equipment and Diesel Repair; Machine Tool; Mechanical Drafting tDie Designt; Mechanical Drafting Uig and Fixture De- signi; Printing; Printing Management and Supervision; Radio-Television Service; Color Television Service; Transmitter Service; Refrigeration; Heating and Air Conditioning; Visual Reproduction Technician; and Welding. The general obiective of the trade-technical courses is to train the student to be competent in his chosen field, in addition to developing desirable civic atti- tudes; correct work habits and a mastery of the essential skills of the trade; and to acquaint the student with the socio-economic aspects of the American economy. Any mature person with u seriousness of mind, on eagerness to learn, and who can profit from the in- struction offered will be considered for entrance. The past records from high school do not prevent potential students from entering, the criteria being that the student shall be required to prove his capabilities by maintaining a minimum of "C" over- age work while enrolled. A student is qualified for a Trade and Industrial certificate upon satisfactorily completing the prescrib- ed course requirements.

They played all their games to win, but the "break" never came.

Excellent condition, a strong pair of legs, and the "Nthll degree of endurance are only a few of the necessary criteria for a top performing track team. Since Coach Norman Bennett took the reins in 1958, the Ferris track team has won 11 of 14 dual meets 2.2;; . ' and has broken every record except the broad iump. Included in the new records was the all time scoring record established in a dual meet with Olivet, won by Ferris 118-13. The team also won the Northern Invitational at Marquette which placed them in com- petition with teams from Northern Michigan, Michigan Tech, and 500 Tech. It was in this meet that Ferris accomplished the amazing feat of placing the first four spots in the 100-yard dash. So strongly did the squad dominate the dashes, that not one team placed in the 100 against Ferris in the first four meets.

A well rounded schedule offers competition in foot- ball, basketbaH, bowling, volleyball, and ping pong. Over the years, the participation in such activities by the mass of students has been wide and vigorous. Student self direction has been encouraged with faculty guidance as a balancing factor. A balanced relationship between study time and play time has been. maintained. Under the guidance of Coach Frank Khras the Intramural program is rapidly be- coming one of the bigger activities on campus and the competition ran strong as closely matched teams vied for honors in intramurals. Last year, in one of the closest races in the history of this award, the Norman Bunker Trophy, the intra- mural alI-sports trophy among fraternities was awarded to Phi Sigma Chi at the 1958 lnterfraternity Council Banquet.

The lntertraternity Council is a co-ordinoting body between the eight fraternities at Ferris, established to guide fraternity interests and activities and to pro- mote the common ideals of Greek brotherhood. The Council also strives for improved communications be- tween fraternities and the other student organiza- tions, the administration, and the faculty. Membership of the Council is comprised of two repre- sentatives and one alternate representative from each professional and social fraternity on campus- Deltc: Tau Epsilon, Kappa Sigma Kappa, Kappa Psi, Omega Tau Omega, Phi Delta Chi, Phi Sigma Chi, Sigma Alpha Delta, and Sigma Mu Iota Organiza- tional Status. Greek influence has encompassed Ferris's campus so completely that this year every major event, except two, on the student's social calendar was sponsored by a fraternity or sorority. In student organizations, over 75 per cent of the maior offices are held by Greek men and women. in scholarship, the overall grade point average of the fraternity men was near- ly 0.2 higher then the all college average as an- nounced at the i958 lnterfraternity Council Scholar- ship Banquet last spring. To say that the fraternities at Ferris are active, then, is indeed an understatement. The people of the Inter- fraternity Council are proud of their scholarship. Though not a member of the National lnterfraternity Conference, Ferris lnstitute's IFC hos adhered to its Criteria and Decolog of Fraternity Policy. In order to re-emphosize the council's goal of scholar- ship, the IFC each year sponsors a "Greek Week" during the Spring Quarter. To open the week an IFC Scholarship Banquet is held and a revolving plaque is presented to the fraternity having the highest cumulative grade point average. Individual awards are given to the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior of each fraternity who has the outstanding scholastic record. The Outstanding Educator of Ferris is then honored with a Certificate of Merit.

Delta Tau Epsilon was founded at Ferris in 1956. The purpose of the fraternity is to develop character and leadership for the benefit of the individual, the community, and Ferris Institute. The brothers were very proud of their accomplish- ments during the 1958-59 school year. A winning Homecoming Queen, 0 second in the push cart derby, and o first-place float entry; the largest ever entered in any homecoming parade, were striking examples of accomplishment through the spirit, cooperation and hard work of the chapter members. A toboggan party, after game dance, intramural sports, parties, and smokers are only a few of the social events that the "Detes" enjoyed during the year. The spring formal, always a highpoint on DTE's social calendar again proved to be a notable success. Delta Tau Epsilon is planning and looking forward to future years as rewarding as this one. ,y m ER$ ': THIRD ROW, Left Ross Alexander, Bruce VonDerveer, Poul Benson.

The areas of these activities in- cluded professional activities, social functions, athle- tics, and scholastics. Being a professional pharmaceutical fraternity, var- ious professional programs were sponsored enabling members to learn more about their field. These pro- grams include demonstrations, lectures, and movies dealing with pharmacy from manufacturing to retail- ing. Kappa Psi prides itself on its academic achieve- ments over the years. In the past year, several men were elected to Rho Chi, honorary pharmaceutical society, and four members were elected to Who's Who among students in American Colleges and Uni- versities. Although the pharmacy curriculum required much time for study, the men of Kappa Psi were among the first to support social activities on campus. This year Kappa Psi became the first organization at Fer- ris to sponsor a big name band for a dance. Over 500 couples attended the 9fh Annual Sweetheart Ball held on Valentines Day featuring Tommy Dorsey's Bond. During Homecoming the Kappas took part in all the festivities, including the competitive activities through the weekend. Durng the spring term, Kappa Psi sponsored the Kappa Karnival in which all cam- pus organizations got together for an evening of merriment.

The Kappa Sigma Kappa fraternity can look back on a year of growth and progress. it is an organiza- tion rich in realization of its obligations to its mem- bers. Recognition of these obligations has enabled the fraternity to make its new house at 716 Grant Street a real asset in which its members may work, study, live, and play in comfort. The success and achievement in activities such as Homecoming, the Millionaire's Party, intramural sports, the Winter Carnival and Kampus chers were made possible only through men taking the added obligation of responsible positions. Individual talents were utilized in an effort towards goals which were both individually satisfying and mutually gratifying. Exchange meetings with their sister sorority, Sigma Kappa Sigma, stags, rushing, and the Spring Formal were but a part of a full social calendar that helped to make the school year a wonderful memory.

FRONT ROW, Left '0 Right: Robert Plars, Steven Gold, David Kirshenbuum, Am Dean Rankin presents Sigma Mu Iota Organizational Status with their charter as a recognized fraternity. Sigma Mu Iota was founded on an idea, vision and dream. Early in the spring of 1958, five men gath- ered together. Each one of these men had the de- sire and initiative to work with one another, with one dream in mind, a fraternity of the campus of Ferris Institute. These five men also placed friendship, scholastic achievement, and brotherhood as their goals to attain. Jerry Rozan, Robert Pious, David Kwiker, Les Sigale and Steven Gold were the men who wanted to reach these goals. While talking over their plans, they discovered that others on the campus of Ferris had the same goals in mind. After much study and thought, six more men were invited to ioin. They were: Kenneth Sobie, David Kirshenbaum, Michael Wittenberg, Steven Rope, Sheldon Sinai and Lawrence Siegel. With the combined efforts of the eleven men, and with t h e. help, work, and encouragement of our three ad- visors, Mr. Herman Kosak, Mr. Thad Diebel, and Mr. Royal Klein, Sigma Mu iota was formed. Just having a dream was not enough. The first obstacle to overcome with the lnter-Fraternity Coun- cil. At the time they were applying for recognition there was another organization doing the same. After long deliberation the council decided on them, Simgc Mu Iota. With the approval of the Inter-fratemity ?ww-vg , r 2m . Council their next step was the Student Activities Council. This council was made up of faculty and students. After the Council questioned two members of the fraternity at great length, a vote was taken. Result? Unanimous in favor of recognition. With their approval Sigma Mu Iota proceeded to the of- fice of the Dean of Students and finally on to the President's office for his signature. Sigma Mu Iota is the eighth fraternity on the Ferris campus. Based on the foundation of brotherhood, loyalty, and scholastic achievement they will strive to be one of the best fraternities on this campus. ta." we ' W m.tumag t: ...... .- untrerrvv v...: n s: "VIHHINVIVHH ?VfTVIHHI Omega Tau Omega FRONT ROW, Left to Right: David Steel, John Raymond Gerdes, Rouglas Sovey.

Another highlight of this year was their annual pledge banquet held at the Wildlife Restaurant which was enioyed by all who attended. Omega Tau Omega and Delta Tau Epsilon formed a partnership this year and presented the Gerry Mulli- gan jazz group for the Annual Concert. Under this agreement, the D. T. E.'s. and the O. T.

The lotc: Beta chapter of Phi Sigma Chi has con- sistently stoocl among the top fraternities on campus and has proudly maintained a tradition of leader- ship and participation in college activities. During the past year the fraternity held close to its program of constructive pledgingeconverting raw pledges into the finished product of a graduating senior, not by humiliation of public initiation or physical maltreatment, but by suggestion and example in a high code of gentlemanly conduct, thereby aiding the pledges in attainment of scholar- ship, self-confidence, good personality, and partici- pation in campus activities. The pledge term is a period during which both actives cmd pledges have an opportunity to prove their unselfish interest and sincere willingness to learn, accept, and uphold the ideals of the fraternity. Each man received valuable experiences through participation in campus activities, and the fraternity was rewarded by first place trophies in Greek Sing, Kampus Kapers, Pushcart Derby, Tug-of-Wor, Snow Carnival, o'nd intramural sports.

It all began about 4:00 a.m., Sunday, June 22, when the fraternity house at 302 South Michigan was de- stroyed by fire. Fortunately, although five people were in the house at the time, no lives were lost and only one person incurred injury. All of the Delts were immediately notified and sum- moned to an emergency meeting which was held to discuss the possibilities of obtaining a new home. The Delts soon started negotiations with Dr. Victor F. Spathelf for the purchase of his home as a new fro- ternity house. After receiving a permit from the Big Rapids City Commission to use the home as o frater- nity house, the residence at 607 South Michigan was purchased and is now the new home of the Sigma Alpha Delta Fraternity. A very extensive remodeling iob was done, and the Delts moved into their new home in March of 1959. SECOND ROW, Left to Right: Crawford, Gene Hockemeyer, Horigan, Lysle Berizeemen, Charles Frederick Launitz, Frank Douglas Marsh, Eldon Storrs, Lawrence Adams, Although the acquiring of a new "homell was the maior issue of the 1958-59 school year, fall term found the Delts participating in the most gala Home- coming festivities to date and emerging with three first places in the sundry contests held over the week- end. Later in the fall term they sponsored a Hallo- ween party for the children of Big Rapids which was enjoyed by all and will undoubtedly become an annual affair. It is this sort of event which the Delts place high on their priority list because it not only brings pleasure to the fraternity and the children of Big Rapids, but is applauded by the community, giv- ing stature to the fraternity and Ferris Institute. The Delt-Beta formal kicked off the winter term in fine style. This was followed by an all school square dance which they sponsored. Participation was also enjoyed by all in the annual Winter Carnival. The pace did not slacken for the Delts spring term. included on the agenda was the move to their new. home and the participation in Kampus Kapers and Greek Week festivities. The term was climaxed by the sponsoring of the Second Annual Graduation Ball which proved successful beyond all expectation. All too soon graduation day rolled around with many Delts receiving their diplomas and terminating their stay here at Ferris. Brothers graduating are: Vern Cherneski, Dale Dunham, Ronald Elenbaas, Norman Fitzpatrick, William Golden, Donald Heilig, Keith Morrison, Jack Porter, Bud Stabbins, and Walter Welsby.

"Memories Are Made of This." Yes, another fun-filied, successful, exciting year for the Betas to remember. First, the pre-homecoming dance started off the year with a iingle - putting money in the Beta's piggy bank. Then came Twirp Week, co-sponsored with the DTE's. Placing second in Kampus Kapers is an- other Beta memory. During Greek Week they placed first in the track meet and second in Greek Sing. And, remember the fun they had participating in intramural sports! Following the spring formal was Kappa Karnivul in which they sponsored a booth with the Delts, their brothers. They're bursting with pride because their sister, Elaine Burgess is in Who's Who. But they are equal- ly proud of all their wonderful sorority sisters whose friendship will be cherished always. 50 many fond memories e parties with the Delts, the heart-to-heart talks in the dorm, weddings of brothers and sisters, and the celebration of their thirtieth anniversary.

As the temperature fell lower and lower, the Lamb- dos couid be found with the Phi Delts, their brother fraternity, enioyinq joint meetings and an annual Christmas party. Snow brought enioyable skating and toboggan parties. Spring arrived with its magic touch and the Lambs were very excited because Kompus Kopers was not far off. During this rejuvenating season, the Lambs held 0 Silent Auction which proved to be very exciting. Next, the Greek Sing left this group, as well as the rest of the campus, feeling on a level with the birds. The climax of this lively season was the Lambda Spring Formal. If the sorority could speak, perhaps its statement would be, "Although we bid farewell to the graduat- ing seniors, we will always remember our wonderful experiences as sisters . . . may our friendships eh- dure forever."

The Theta's efforts during this year were well re- warded as they received first place for their home- coming float and first place for their snow statue "The Purple People Eater." The highlight of this year was the acceptance of Theta Tau Omega as an offi- cial sorority on campus which signified that they suc- cessfully met the requirements for sororities as speci- fied by the Panhellenic Council.

Tabulating debits and credits may seem dull to some students, but to future accountants, it is most fas- cinating. To augment their skills achieved in the classroom with intelligent and compatble co-curri- cuiar activity is the aim of the Accounting Club. In a pleasant, social atmosphere, the Accounting Club offers an opportunity for association with other accounting maiors and a meeting ground where stu- dents can benefit by the experiences and ideas of professionals in the field. The meetings provide a program of speakers from varied fields of accounting. These lecture and discus- sion periods give information and inspiration, thus encouraging students to reach for the goals that are so readily accessible to the person with ambition. During the past year the club, under the able leader- ship of President William Krueger, was instrumental in promoting good accounting among the felIows tend a girlD and good fellowships among the ac- countants. . As the members enter the business world and begin to apply their accounting training, the experience and insight gained in this co-curricular organization will be invaluable. With this in mind, the Accounting Club can close its books for 1958-59-very much in the black ink of success. The Kappa Eta cast of Alpha Psi Omega, the largest honorary DramatBCS Fraternity in the United States, was originated on the Ferris campus in 1946. Under the leadership of Dr. 0. Rossi, it now consists of over 26,000 members. Since 1946, the Kappa Eta cast has undertaken numerous theatrical productions in every phase of Dramatics. The hard work that is necessary in the field of Dramatics and the social atmos- phere of the theatre coincide to make Alpha Psi Omega the most active honorary fraternity on the Ferris campus. The fiscal school year of 1958-59 has brought new light to the theatre at Ferris Institute. With the addition of the new student center on campus, a new experience, from both the standpoint of dramatics and the school, took place in the production of "Tea- house of the August Moon." An experimentation of of "theater-in-the-round" was successfully tested in the fall term, and the winter term saw no let up in the rehearsal schedule. Alpha Psi Omega members directed and acted in seven one act plays. The full schedule includes "A Night at an Inn", l'The Valiant", "Box and Cox", "The Devil and Daniel Webster", "A Long Voyage Home", "Hands Across the Sea", and llThe Miracle of Saint Anthony". The coming spring term looks to be a promising one in which they have planned to produce "Valpone". Left to Right: Robert J. Bennett, Robert W. Franz, Richard E. Brown-Vice President. Alpha Psi Omega All the members of the Kappa Eta cast of Alpha Psi Omege would like to welcome and sincerely thank Dr. Lyle V.

The objective of the organization is to promote unity among the people on whom the future of the pro- fession of pharmacy rests. One of the unique features of the American Pharma- ceutical Association is a monthly publication, which is an integral part of one's membership. The Journal of the A. Ph. A. is published in two parts, the- Scien- tific Edition and the Practical Pharmacy Edition. In these publications are found articles to keep one apace with pharmaceutical progress and events. The highlight of activities conducted by the A. Ph. A. is the Annual Pharmacy Week Conference. Among distinguished guests attending this year's Conference was Dr. William 5. Apple of Washington, D.

A delegation from our branch attended the District IV Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky, this spring. Among those attending will be Richard Bashore who was elected Vice President of District IV at last year's convention. We also expect to have a group attende ing the National A. Ph. A. Convention to be held in August at Cleveland, Ohio. We wish to express our gratitude to Mr. James Hintze, faculty advisor, who guided the organization through a very interesting and profitable year. Automotive Since 1954 a group of automotive students and their instructors have been enioying a club known as the Automotive Safety Promotion Society, or more popularly known as the ASPS. The aim of the club is to better educate its members in the safety of driving and, through them, to better educate the public. If at the end of the year every member has improved his attitude toward safety and passed this knowledge on to others the aim of the club will be well on its way to fulfillment. The club draws its members from the automotive, diesel and body curriculums. The club is also interested in camous activities and they cooperated in sponsoring a homecoming queen candidate. . On the first and third Thursday of every month c: business and program meeting is held. At this time automotive movies are shown; outside sources such as the Michigan State Police, Sun Corporation and others are brought in to conduct safety programs and give much worthwhile information to the mem- bers.

This float depicted such activities as field hockey, basket- ball, softball, track and field, skiing and toboggan- ing, roller skating, swiming, bowling, archery, golf, tennis, volleyball, table tennis, and badminton. With the coming of spring they held their 2nd An. nual Sports Banquet and trophies, medals and awards were presented to deserving members.

The club also sponsors social activities which included participation in intremurats, the sponsoring ot a homecoming queen, and an annual picnic for the alumni of the club. The club .holds regular meetings every second and fourth Thursday of the month. Refrigeration Service Engineers Society The Ferris Institute chapter of Refrigeration Service Engineers Society is now in its third year as a campus organzation, the local chapter having been formed February 20, 1957. The outstanding accomplishment achieved in the year 1958 was the formal presenta- tion of the charter which gave them the distinction of being .the first student chapter in the International Society of Refrigeration Service Engineers. This char- ter was presented by Mr. Milton C. Larson, Regional Director of the International Society. The object of the organization is to further the educa- tion of its members in the operation, installation, maintenance, application, and servicing of all types of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. The Association has made many excursions to various Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Industries include ing The Acme Refrigeration Company, in Jackson, Michigan; The Norge Company, of Muskegon, Michi- gan; and the Bastion-Blessing Company, at Grand Haven, Michigan.

From its conception, the Beta Mu LiChapter has endeavored to promote scholarship ewithin the pharmacy division by presenting awards .1 each spring to the outstanding sophomores and by ' sponsoring various educational programs throughout the year. 1 Membership in Rho Chi is by invitation, and is limited to those persons in the top 200A: of the senior class i with a grade average of at least 3.00. Members are ' initiated in the spring and fall of each year and the outstanding sophomore awards consist of Taber's Cy- clopedic Medical Dictionaries. Officers for this year have been: Leo Bueche President Charles Smith Vice President Amy Lou Moore Secretary-Treasurer Ross Alexander Historian Dr. Norris Dunhum FGCUHY Adviser Founded in the Fall of 1957, Sigma Pi witnessed a significant growth of membership during 1958-59. This was due, in part, to the extension of member- ship to sophomores and freshmen in accordance with Delta Sigma Pi requirements. To be considered for Sigma Pi, a Professional Com- merce and Business Administration Fraternity, an in- dividual must be a male student enrolled in a four- year Commerce degree program. Maintenance of a 8- average is mandatory while on the Ferris cam- pus and a student shall have completed at least one term at Ferris. A maior accomplishment during the year was the petitioning for membership in Delta Sigma Pi, Na- tional Professional Commerce and Business Adminis- tration Fraternity. In accordance with regulations of Delta Sigma Pi, a six-month waiting period is re- quired and was completed by Sigma Pi in early 1959. When Ferris becomes accredited by the North Central Association, Sigma Pi will then be eligible to become a chartered chapter of Delta Sigma Pi. In the annual directory of "Who's Who Among Stu- dents in American Universities and Colleges", the following members were recognized: Dale Allison, John Doneth, Kenneth Elenbaas, Nor- man Fitzpatrick, Beniamin Griswold, Oliver Krueger, Donald Kuenzel, Roy Nelson, Donald Rossetter, Thomas Scholler, and Norman Larson.

Spathelf Chapter of the Student National Educa- tion Association, a small but active group of future teachers under the sponsorship of Dr. Robert L. Hitch. By meeting with teachers in the field and viewing several films depicting the responsibilites of edu- cators, this professional organization experienced a rewarding year of learning tirst-hand what is ex- pected of the beginning teacher. Since the organi- zation is a part of the National Education Associa- tion and the Michigan Education Association, it par- ticifJated in state and regional conferences. As Ferris grows and a greater number of students enroll in teacher education, SNEA will also expand to include all who are interested in supplementing their education by membership in this professional organization. Both, areas of teacher education of- fered at Ferris, Science and Commerce, are repre- sented in SNEA. The officers are: President ...................................... Leonard L.

In May, 1958, the name was changed to Today's Secretaries. Upon returning to school last fall, the members worked diligently on a float and entered it in the Homecoming parade. At Christmas a demonstra- tion was given by Martz and Shapley on the art of gift wrapping. Later in in the year, two second year Cosmetology students gave an interesting de- monstration on the proper use of make-up, hair care, and manicuring. Again this year, the girls enioyed hearing a talk by a representative of Kelly Girl's Service from Grand Rapids on office procedures. Many other interesting programs were presented throughout the year on different phases of business including a field trip to the Gerber Company in Free month. The NOMA Spelling Contest was sponsored by the club in January. In May, at the annual banquet held in the Student Center, awards were presented to students for outstanding achievements in the secretarial department.

' L Acting as a focal point for the social activities of Bulldog athletes, the Varsity Club actively promotes functions at which campus athletes can become bet- ter acquainted with each other. The club also per- forms various services at campus activities, both ath- letic and academic. The functions of the club itself provide interesting activities for its members. These include the spring picnic and banquet plus occasional outings for the entire group. Those fortunate enough to win a varsity letter can gain a life-time pass to all Ferris sports events by ioining the Varsity Club. This year for the first time all Varsity Club members of the past will unite for a softball game and picnic with present members. It is hoped that this will turn into an annual affair by which athletes can maintain contact with their teammates and get to- gether for reminiscense of the old times when they battled on Top Taggert Field.

It was founded by fourteen Jewish stu- dents in the fall of 1957. Since that date the Jewish population on campus has tripled, likewise have the activities of the organization. The Jewish students at Ferris Institute participate actvely in athletics, social functions, and religious services of their faith. Highlighting their activities were the Ugliest Man On Campus Contest, 0 rolier skatng party, and a banquet of the end of the year. The purpose of the club has been to create a feeling of brotherhood among Jewish students on the Ferris Institute campus. Business meetings were held to dis- cuss organizational participation to attain this goal. Every Frday night throughout the school year, reli- gious services are held. For the past two years serv- ices have been conducted by Mr. Maurice Rosen, pharmacy student from Chicago. The officers heading this years activities are: Mr. and Mrs. Royal Klein Advisor Maurice Rosen President Harold Stulberg Vice President Monte Cohn Treasurer Joanne Fink Secretary Wesley Foundation The Methodist Church is represented nationally on state college and university campuses through its ministry to students known as the Wesley Foundation. Ferris Institute now has a vital unit of Wesley Founda- tion on its own sparkling new campus. Each Eunday evening at 5:00 p.m., between fifty and sixty young people gather at the new "Wesley House" located at 268 South Warren Avenue, which is the Wesley Foundation Student Center on the campus. This house is the result of the giving of Michigan Methodists in their efforts to establish a "student center" on each of our state colleges and university campuses. Wesley foundation seeks to minister to the needs of Ferris students spiritually, intellectually, and socially. The programs and activities are, therefore, geared to provide a full and balanced approach to all these basic needs. Reverend Robert E. Willoughby of First Methodist Church is the Minister-Director of Wesley Founda- tion. Mr. George Berry is Assistant Director. Both Mrs. Willoughby and Mrs. Berry provide additional leadership.

Gamma Delta is the religious organization of college students of the Synodical Conference icomposed of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the Wisconsin Synod, the Slovak Evangelical Lutheran Church, and the Norwegian Synod. But it is not limited to students of these churches alone. Any and all students are welcome to attend. The founders of Gamma Delta, sensing the intellect- ual and spiritual problems confronting students in American college and university life, realized that there was a need for a collegiate organizaton, in- ternational in scope, through which we might attack our common problems. But while ct nationally inte- grated program has many advantages, there is much variation among the campus uses as to size, numbers of prospective members, administrative en- couragement or opposition, physical facilities, and the vague property of religoius consciousness. In order to meet this situation, each chapter is al- lowed a great deal of flexibility in its administration of the Gamma Delta program, and there is a wide variation from chapter to chapter in the extent of training and indoctrination that new initiates are given. Nevertheless, a universal need exists for mak- ing membership in this religious fraternity. It is to- ward this goal that the Beta Phi Chapter has set its cums. Intervarsity Christian Fellowship Founded in 1877 at Cambridge University, England; the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship is now active in twenty-one different countries. I. V. C. F. is an in- terdenominational organization designed to supple- ment the student's campus religious life through prayer and Bible study. The Fellowship's first branch in America was established at Harvard University in 1947. From there it spread rapidly throughout the United States and Canada to bring the total number of chapters to nearly 600. At its Tuesday night meetings, I. V. C. F. presented special speakers, Bible studies led by the members themselves, and group discussions to answer the questions regarding the problems of a student's spiritual udiustment at college. Believing that there is a definite need for Christian fellowship and fun, the Ferris chapter of I. V. C. F. planned one of its meetings each month as a social period.

The Newman Club had five regular meetings during each term of the academic year. The fall-term meetings featured guest speak- ers; winter term meetings consisted of a five-film series on marriage; and spring term featured a com- bination of films and guest speakers. In addition to its meetings, the Newman Club sponsored dances, three Communion Breakfasts throughout the year, a toboggan party, and a combined "Splash Party" with Central Michigan College's Newman Club. The Newman Club also had its own intramural basket- ball team. Mary's Parish to provide campus mass each Sunday morning for Catholic students. The Newman Club cooperates with St. A major feature of the year was the ground break- ing ceremony for St. Paul's Chapel and Catholic Student Center. Construction was begun in the fall on the $150,000 building which will be located east of the Campus Heights development. The building is expected to be completed for the opening of full term, 1959. 1 Marion Stroh, Adele Rydeski, Bernadine Owsinak, lawrence Kirby, Veronica Pudelko, Dyann Harbaugh.

Ferris Playhouse The Ferris Playhouse, under the direction of Dr. Lyle V. Mayer, began the fall term of the 1958-59 year with the smash hit "Teahouse of the August Moon" presented in the Dome Room of the Student Center. With the addition of the Dome Room a unique type of arena staging was adapted for the use by the Ferris Plyhouse. The essential features of this type of staging are that the acting arena is in the center, with the audience sitting on all four sides of the stage. The Ferris Playhouse feels that the intimacy of the arena permits the audience to enjoy plays of such subtley that they could not be projected in a regular theatre. The Playhouse also feels that arena type productions makes a greater impact on the audience which adds to the play. These are some of the reasons why the Ferris Playhouse has adopted the arena type staging. Throughout the entire year the Playhouse presented numerous one act plays.

Does he feel that this island is between two vast oceans and should he venture off his island he will be engulfed by the swirling waters that beat upon its shores? Does he feel that his island position is a difficult one to hold and that the densities and enigmas of the two oceans create problems insoluble for the islander? Yes, the student has these feelings often if he is active in student government. Student government is the co-curricular island be- tween the curricular affairs of the classroom and the extra-curricular activities of social life. In assuming this position the student government certainly does not claim the maior .role in the area of curriculum nor is it the maior social-tunction sponsoring organi- zation on campus. The role it does play however, is a vastly important one directly in the center of these two "oceans". The first realization of this position came last year when the good ship Student Council set off in its his- toric voyage. As mentioned in last year's volume of this publication, it was a social function year of the Student Council. This year has seen a clearer definition of position by student leaders in the form and structure of the All-College Student Government. FRONT ROW, Left to Right: Kenneth Dernbach-President, Dennis Nystrom, A. C. S. G. grew out of the dreams, ideas, and plans of many people from many sources. Transition is never easy but the officers and members took stock of the task, rolled up their sleeves, and set to work with a gusto. When the dust clears, S. C. S. G. of 1958-59 will have accomplished much. Student government will be a three branch organi- zation: executive, legislative, and iudicial, a concept so new it is so vital in cementing relations with the administration that students now have much more weight in the affairs of the college that are so much their responsibility. The Senate, made up of repre- sentatives of housing units and maior organizations, gives more students a voice in their government than ever before.

Committee meeting Government-Senate Most organizations work their way to a place of re- sponsibility after several college generations of lead- ership and service to a campus, but not so with the Student Senate. Its task was to take a plan set down a on paper and make from it a strong student govern- 5w ment capable of assuming this responsibility. With 7 a a i ,t g few traditions of the past to rely on, it has been a .- u year of new committees, new plans, and new ideas. Senate members developed an everyday appearance am of efficiency as their routine brought them in contact . ; i .E with the public and human relations, campus action, I ' ' i; i and the fields of culture and education. The purpose E of their endeavors was to keep the members aware i . of campus needs by discovering and expressing stu- is 23mm dent opinion, conducting aII-campus proiects, coordi- 1?; noting student activities, and seeking practical solu- tions to college problems. Delegates ably represented the A" College Student Student leaders and faculty members dine together at leadership Banquet. Government at numerous conventions and seminars . throughout the state and country, particularly Sena- ' g . - tor S. John Byington, former student body president who is now Chairman of the Michigan Region of the I National Student Association and Chairman of the National Executive Committee. As they worked to make the student body more aware of its purpose and activities, the Senators were rewarded by the knowledge that they performed a service to their constituents and improved life in the campus community.

'm The Concert Band presented three maior concerts during the year and performed for several other college functions. The Winter Concert featured Byron Autrey, co met virtuoso as guest soloist. This was the first time in recent years that a nationally noted soloist had appeared with the band. The Concert opened the first annual Festival of Arts at Ferris Institute. The Bulldog Marching Band, under the direction of Mr. Dacho Dachoff, conductor of bonds, and direc- tor of music, had one of its busiest seasons in the history of the college. The Band presented six outstanding musical half-time shows during the home football games and became known as the Bulldog Marching Band. For the second year, Wil- liam Kurtz performed as drum major.

BulIdog Marching Band at Briggs Stadium in Detroit, featured in half time show in celebration of Ferris Insti- tute's 75th Anniversary. In retrospect, the outstanding achievement of the Bulldog Marching Band was its appearance at Briggs Stadium in Detroit, Michigan before a capa- city crowd of over 56,000 spectators. Featured in the half-time show in celebration of Ferris Insti- tute's 75th Anniversary, the show was telecast and broadcast over television and radio in Michigan and The Symphonic Brass Ensemble - Dacho Duchoff, Con- ductor Appeared at the Festival of Arts Banquet and the Spring Assembly Pop Concert.

Mr. Duchoff was the guest con? ductor for the half-time show and the band received a thunderous ovation for its performance.

It is the highest recognition that members of the band can bestow upon a fellow member whose leadership, character, and service to the bands was above and far beyond musicianship. This was the second year of the award with the first award in 1957. This award went to Roland Ream, senior Commerce student from Big Rapids. The Men's Glee Club enjoyed an exciting and successful year performing publicly at the Christmas Concert, Winter Concert, and Spring Assembly and Popular Concert. They also presented several programs at banquets and other college and civic functions. Organized last fall for the first time, the Womens' Glee Club was featured at the Christmas Concert and the Spring Assembly and Popular Concert. It is under the di- rection of Mr. Richard H. Lockwood. 144 The Crimson and Gold Chorus had one of its most successful years. Under the direction of Mr. Richard H. Lockwood, the chorus was featured at the Thanksgiving Assembly, Annual Christmas Concert, Spring Concert, Baccalaureate, and climaxed- its activities with a two-day singing tour of East, Cen- tral Michigan. For the first time the chorus was featured in the one act American Folk Opera, Down in the Valley by Kurt Weill. Student soloists joined with the chorus in memorable performances as a part of the Festival of Arts.

The Ferriscope Staff On a warm spring night at the Publication's Ban- quet, Editor Charles Antor and Assistant Editor Ro- bert Sawyer were announced. Immediately they began to overflow with ideas which were scribbled down and filed for the coming year. As always, the preceding summer was the time for thinking up and discarding themes and ideas, and that was when our Editor began his work. Finally in the fall, a layout book tucked under his arm, he took over the big desk in the new office in the Student Center Build- ing. Work, work, work! The staff industriously started off the year selling books in the registration line. As weary fellow-classmates approached the exit, they were stopped with the question, "Say, have you bought a Ferriscope?" Copy writers pounded the typewriters and racked their brains for the right word to finish their assignment while others plunged knee- deep in aiphabetizing and filing photos and check- ing names. After much work had been done by the editor and his staff-heads, the dummy book and major details were completed. For the first time, a metallic inlay on the cover and a two-color process on the inside pages were used along with an increase of twenty- four pages to improve the book further. On April 15, the earthquake arrived, and Ferriscop- ites dashed out to avoid the mad rush made by the Editor for the printers', completed Ferriscope lay- outs in hand.

Attempts to clarify the situation officially received growls and snarls from an uncertain figure lodged next to the telephone awaiting the final word. In June it came. The staff breathed a sigh of relief and felt the warm satisfaction of a iob completed. Deadlines, seemingly impossible because of unlocat- able pictures or unwritten copy, had been met . . . the goals that had seemed so distant had become a reality . . . only the distribution remained. This is the yearbook story, and at its final outcome, a truly improved Ferriscope has been produced. On a warm spring night the new editor-in-chief, Wil- liam Golden and associate editor, Blair Lyman, were announced. Immediately they began to overflow with ideas which they scribbled down and filed for the coming year. Before anyone realized, Septem- ber was here again. The Torch office came to life. Doors w'ere'opened, cobwebs dusted away and the office cleaned. Work! Work! Work! The Torch serves two very valuable functions on campus. First of all, and probably most important, it transmits news-club activities, intramural and varsity sports, social events, cultural functions, students opin- ions, the latest administrative mandetes, Greek gos- sip, and of course Gabby. With all these features it is probably unnecessary to say that one of the highlights of every Friday is the distribution of the Torch to all parts of the Campus. There is, however, another very important and some- what related function which the Torch serves. It's offices in the Student Center have become a sort of "window to the world." What better place on campus is there to exchange the latest "unprintable" gossip? Can you think of a better place to find out the identity of the Homecoming Queen before she is crowned? Is not the Torch office the best vantage point from which to observe the efficiency of the All College Student Government, and its officers? Yes, if its information you want, check with the Torch.

VxMacddo g I 4100 I STRY 1884-1939: The seniors witnessed the last events of Ferris's ac- tivities and waited to begin a new episode in liv- ing. Their college life had been rich and full, so in retrospect, it was not surprising to find that it had sped by so quickly. lrrevocably passed the last formal, the final Homecoming, and the end of exams .... and the ultimate goal - graduation; ex- huberution counterbalanced with sadness, independ- ence tempered by anxiety, certainty offset by doubt- fuiness e with these mixed emotions, the seniors received their diplomas, the symbol of a college edu- cation. They were now ready to go out into the world and so close another chapter of their lives which will live on through friendships, loyalties, and knowledge and experienced gained in these for- mative years. 149 Seniors Larry G.

During the past year we have heard much of the 75th Anniversary. The Diamond Jubilee was cele- brated by the Institute with many cultural and social events. The Ferriscope presents a pictorial iourney from 1884 to 1959. The itinerary leads us through what has been. We meet the students who molded our traditions and gave us our heritage. We see how they lived, how they worked, and how they played. respect 183 184 F Woodbridge M M sx Nathaniel Ferris Those today, who believe that the purpose and philosophy of American education is "opportunity for the many rather than the selected few" will gain inspiration from the Ferris story. Ferris Institute founded by Woodbridge N. Ferris in 1884 in the isolated northern Michigan town of Big Rapids was dedicated to this principle and to a program of practical education. After 75 years of operation The faculty in 1892; Mrs. Pease, Mr, and Mr. Wesse Hellen Gillespie Ferris and with more than 80,000 alumni this institution has a tradition of educational experimentation. Often referred to as the "people's college," its contribution to Michigan education is widely acclaimed. With the now present controversy over "who shall be educat- ed" being debated across the land, the Ferris exper- iment provides a meaningful case study.

The answer to the question of why this school was a success becomes a definition of the founder's phil- osophy. Called an opportunity school from the first, the theory of limitation of enrollment ?o the upper decile or upper quarflle of any particular group was entirely foreign to its nature. The whole spirit of the school was antagonistic to any philosophy of class education. ,9 P:?WM WA n1 .o-l rm-u-wy-p. QM A. $2; F. 1.

Ferris Teacher-Training Class, October, 1924 An educational program such as Ferris envisaged had to have flexibility and practical characteristics to meet the varied demands of a heterogeneous stu- dent body. The programs therefore, were developed at Ferris Institute out of the needs of the people. Since many of the students who entered Ferris come without formal high school training, the Institute at the very beginning developed a high school prepar- atory program for those students which readied them for college work either at Ferris or at other institutions of higher learning. Many were taught to read and write as a result of the program, and many were taught a useful occupation. President Brophy receives first yearbook in 21 years, May, 1951. Commercial Room, October, 1923 Ferris's belief in the ability of people to succeed when properly motivated and directed also was the primary reason that the Institute became well known for its service in education rehabilitation. Through the years students having poor academic records in high school and in colleges and universities were referred to Ferris Institute. Successfhl redirection and salvaging of many of these students is shown by their fine records and successful careers. Pharmacy lab in the Old Main. The raising of the tower Chow Time, hen and Now. ugh- Bi A They certainly didn't starve then, Chow time is the same then as now. Nor do they starve now. In 1949 by legislative act, Ferris Institute was made a part of the public system of higher education in Michigan and is now numbered among the ten public institutions 6f higher learning in the state. In adopting it into the family of state colleges, the legislature of Michigan has said the nature of Ferris as it had operated traditionally in scope, philosophy, and cur- ricular pattern must be moihtained. As a result the story of Ferris Institute as a public college has been one of growth and dedicated purpose on the part of all connected with the institution to build a New Ferris including all that was unique and purposeful from the past incorporated with 20th century ideals and needs of education. Now with on enrollment exceeding 2,800 full-time students, Ferris continues to answer its traditional mandate, not to on unsophisticated lumbering and agricultural society, but to a 20th century industrial, technical and business society. The falling of the tower The Ferris campus in 1958 191 1884-1959' An institution must have a precise, recognizable, effective personality in the total aggregate of its resources to have a positive impact upon individuals. It must have clear purposes and goals if it is to be both effective and eloquent in its appeal to student interest. It must have a spiritual quality of its own, strong and vibrant, if it is to loose the inner spiritual wellsprings of the individual students which in the final analysis is the real person we are dealing with-and not what we think we see or would like to believe the person is. Let us then say what we are. Let us do what we say in the most effective manner possible. Then let us take all the pride of workmanship of the artist who is perfecting the image of his mind's eye as we work from clay to day. We cannot live in the past. We can part from nostal- gic impulse, only properly deal with the past as it has a contribution to make to the present and primar- ily the future, for the present is too soon past! The heritage of spiritepurpose-and early effort is, however, such a treasure. It is our task to give that, and all that we can today add, such implementation in terms of modern knowhow, experience and aspera- tion as will render this heritage the more meaningful and effective.

There is much I wish to say, many things I'd like to tell you, hopes ideas,- comedy, and tragedy; but these are lost, woven into every page. This year, for all of us, has been crowded with panic and pressures and occasionally a tiny piece of pride. To all those who helped I give a grateful thank-you and especially to the following people: To Dean Rankin who served as advisor of the yearbook, for his patience with me in listening to my whimes and whines, for his careful scrutiny of each page, and for his daily word of encouragement. To Mr. Charles Crawford who spent countless hours proofreading our copy, catching our incomplete sentences end our typing errors, and for being a human thesaurus. To Mr. Deupree and his photographers for being where I wanted them when I wanted them, and then printing my irregular, unthought of size pictures. To the members of the student Publications Advisory Committee who entrusted in me the position of editor and the duty to put out the '59 FERRISCOPE. And finally to the staff members for performing the essential but' dreorisome tasks and acting like they really enioyed them. Chuck Antor, Editor at x 200
