plAMLINg . 30 The Class of 1921 THERE is recorded somewhere in some of the remote secret memoirs of the college an ac- count which reads that on the Hrst day of the tenth month of the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and seventeen there arrived at Hamline University a new and numerous body of persons who came to be known as the "Clan of 1921." From the earliest accounts of this Clan or Tribe it seems that it was looked upon by the faculty and upperclassmen with much respect and with frequent prophecies as to the unlimited capabilities of this host. Almost immediately the Clan of '21 came to adopt the motto, "The Class That Does Things," and soon the Elders of the institution nodded their heads wisely and remarked, "I told you so. They are a great Clan." Accordingly the Clan at once set to work to organize. Sidney Kienitz was elected to lead the Clan as president, while Nadine Cyrus was the first Chancellor of the Exchequerg they being assisted by Franklin Christenson in the capacity of secretary. From then on activities have jammed every moment of the Clan of '21. A most wonderful party at the home of Dr. Innis was the chief social event of the fall. In the athletic world Schield, Ev Hanson, Klumps, Ray Smith and L. Thomas suddenly dashed into the foreground by filling berths on the varsity football team. The flag nish was held late in October, a well fought battle in which neither side could win. At the end of the first semester the class reorganized with Al Garrett masterfully at the helm. To Arthur McKeon were entrusted the treasures of the Clan, while Virginia Handy was elected to record the minutes of the councils About the middle of the winter the Green Button Club, a new and energetic freshmen girl's organization, honored the men of the Clan with an entertainment in the college Gym. While the women of the Clan were doing their part socially, Kratz, Robbins, Burns and Gainey were winning honors for the Clan and college on the varsity basketball combination, and Kienitz, Nall and Black were occupying the fore in the debating world. And then we should not forget Gove, Porter and Mildred Wood the musical "lights" of the college. The spring season started with a bang when the Clan of '21 defeated the class of 1920 in the annual Frosh-Soph cane rush. A weiner roast on the banks of the Father of Waters for the en- tire Tribe soon followed and then came the Mendota picnic at which the men entertained the Green Button Club. The year ended with the awarding of the baseball H's to Ray Smith, Knopp and Don Smith. When school convened last fall the Clan rallied around Hazel Edwardh as president. Virginia Handy was re-elected secretary and Russell Burns became the new treasurer. During the past year Schield fcaptainl, Silvernale, Ev. Hanson Ccaptain electj Kruse, Burns, and Gainey distinguished themselves on the football field. In basketball Kratz, Qcaptainj, Burns, and Gainey Ccaptain electj, occupied varsity berths. Again Ray Smith, Knopp and Don Smith won glory for the Clan on the diamond, while Burns and Hudson broke into the track world. In the social field the one big event of the year that stands out prominently above all others is the Sophomore-Senior Banquet given by the Clan of '21 to the class of '19 in the Palm Room of the St. Paul Hotel. Never was there a prouder host than the Tribe of '21 on this formal oc- casion, and never was guest more sincerely welcomed and graciously cared for. And last but far from least is recorded in the memoirs of the institution how the Clan of '21 did so nobly 'co-operate' with the other great peoples of the nation in the World War that has just terminated. In spite of the fact that the members of the Clan are young people, it was represented in all branches of the service, army, navy, and marinesg and has produced from its ranks such military geniuses as Lieutenants Potter, Schield, Palmer and Giere. X Thus it is with hopeful eyes cast toward the East that the Clan of '21 awaits the birth of l another college year. tu Ez 69 R ig L Xuges
