 SEMPERVIRENS Volume Two HUMBOLDT STATE COLLEGE Areata, Calif.'ii hi: ram —umminnmunuwPublished by Associated Students of Humboldt State College Copyright 1939 by Ray Pedrotti, Editor. Henry Trione, Business Manager.'ii hi: ram —umminnmunuwContents BOOK ONE Administration BOOK TWO Classes BOOK THREE Departments BOOK FOUR Associated Students BOOK FIVE Athletics'ii hi: ram —umminnmunuwI FOREWORD People collect many things. Some of us collect stamps, some old books; others save match folders, or precious stones. But how many of us save memories? There will always be stamps, books, and gems. But if we fail to collect our memories we will loose them forever This book is intended to be a collection of memories. We, the staff, hope that in the years to come this book will recall to you the many fine experiences of that year at Humboldt State in 1939. THE STAFF. ♦ »'ii hi: ram —umminnmunuwADMINISTRATION tPRESIDENT ARTHUR S. GIST A more ardent worker for Humboldt would be hard to find. President Gist has spent long hours planning ways and means of improving facilities on the campus. Always busy, he is never too much so to stop for a few words or to listen to a tale of woe from some disillusioned student. A noted speaker, he is constantly being requested for public addresses. Pity the poor man who tries to match puns with the President! The busiest man on the campus? Well, our nomination would be Dr. Homer Balabanis. When not teaching he is continually booked for lectures before various organizations throughout the county. His advice is alv ays being sought by students bewildered with the problems of college life. In the office of advisor to the student body he has met practically every student. An authority on the social sciences. Dr. Balabanis has always kept abrest of the changes in social relationships and has guided the addition of new courses to Humboldt's curriculum to meet these changes. Dr. Balabanis holds the honor of being known both as a hard task master and a fine humorist. Despite the former and because of the latter his classes are increasingly larger.Officers of Administration Mrs. Hadley, Dean of Women— Embarking upon a new stream of college life as fairy goa-mother to all college women, Mrs. Hadley has shown herself to be an able advisor to all their problems. She was instrumental in forming a branch of the Associated Women Students at Humboldt. Doctor Jenkins, College Physician ' Doc" to three hundred odd students, he has administered relief to the ailments of all of us from the lowliest Frosh to the mightiest of the football stars. He is as ready to daub some metaphen on a hammered finger as he is to set a broken shoulder. Mrs. Woodcock, Financial Secretary— Efficient manager of Humboldt State's financial matters, Mrs. Woodcock is one of those rare gifts to students who is never too tired or too busy to help in making every occasion a success. No matter what the activity or the hour she is always on hand, ready, willing, and cooperative. Miss Winkler, Assistant Financial Secretary "Em," assistant financial secretary to Mrs. Woodcock, has become a familiar figure on the campus due to her daily trips to and from the College Co-op and Commons where she collects their daily receipts. She v as always present at football games, plays, and concerts to take charge of ticket selling. Mrs. Brookins, Financial Secretary to the Student Body— In her exacting position of financial secretary to the student body, Mrs. Brookins keeps books for all student affairs, including the College Co op. Efficient, and friendly, she has a ready smile for every student that stops at her v indow. Mrs. Hadley Doctor Jenkins Above: Mrs. Woodcock, Mrs. Brookins. Miss WinklerOfficers of Administration I Mr Gravos Miss Chandlor Mr. Graves. Librarian- The task of maintaining an efficient, orderly library is no small one. but Mr. Graves does so with ease and in his spare time makes a permanent record of all college activities with the movie camera. Miss Chandler, Assistant Librarian— One of the most pleasing personalities to come to Humboldt's campus in recent years. Having traveled far and often she is full of interesting experiences. She has the strangest way of looking at disturbing students. So different. Miss Speier. Secretary to the President— A Humboldt trained student, it is quite fitting that Claire Speier should become secretary to the President. Capable, willing, and good natured, she is always ready to run off a few hundred programs or song sheets. Miss Clark, Assistant to the Registrar— Miss Clark came to Humboldt in the middle of the year to take over her present position. She is a quiet, demure person about v hom one knows very little. She maintains she is "just an ordinary girl." After office hours she plays cello in the Little Symphony Orchestra. Mrs. McKittrick, Registrar— "When will grades be cut?" is a familiar tune to Mrs. McKittrick. All the trials of course changes are well-known to her. But no matter how frequent or how insistant student demands may be, she is always a sympathexic listener and helper. Abovo: Miss Sp«ior. Miss Claric.

As Freshmen four years seemed like an eon of time, and now as Seniors, four years seem like the memories of yesterday. Four years of dunkings, of brawls and balls, of exciting games and exacting "little quizzes," of little strifes v ith one another, and of new bonds of friendship, have become stories to tell of the days "when I was in college.” Many of these graduates will become the teachers of tomorrow, some will become business men and women, and some will go on to other schools, but to every member of the Class of ’39 Humboldt will always be Alma Mater. Thrown into the task of practice teaching and other Senior duties, the class did not get their activities under way until the spring semester. Then, through a series of noon dances, card parties, popularity contests, and other concoctions of fertile Senior minds, the class raised over $100 for their class gift of a public address system. Senior destinies were guided by President Blanche Lowry, Vice-President Roy Grand, and Secretary-Treasurer Helen Connick.

Jenkins.JUNIOR CLASS "The Junior class is the most logical class in school to guide student affairs, Juniors have had one year as lowly Freshmen, one year as all-mighty Sophomores and two years to watch the conduct of upperclassmen. Since the Seniors are naturally too busy being Seniors, this leaves the Juniors as the most competent guiding class." With this thought in mind the Juniors of '39 planned a "Modern Reformation." In the words of the class president, Harold Langdon, "the Juniors are going to uplift the conduct and spirit of all upperclassmen, to make them better examples for poor Freshmen and pov ersick Sophomores." Under this standard the class drew up rules for entering Freshmen and made plans 10 have the student body accept these rules for next year's regulations. Stepping out of the Junior class slumps of the previous years, this class planned a Junior Prom and a class picnic. Scholastic honors were attained by Valerie Barker, Bessie Boehne, Mary Flocchini, and Herman Jones. The class also contributed to the fields of music and athletics, producing fine femaie musicians and super-women athletics. The varsity football team relied on Junior players, Edsall, Gomes, Henderson, Jones, Saunderson, Langdon, O'Donnell, and Thornton, wnile Lozensky, Saunderson, and Thornton formed the nucleus of the basketball quintet. Tennis, baseball. and track stars also arcse from the ranks of this class. The Junior motto has truly been "Make hay v hile tl e sun shines for tomorrow we will be Seniors."

SOPHOMORE CLASS After a year of silent suffering as humble Freshmen, the Sophs thought they had finally "come into their own." But they soon discovered they were faced with the herculean task of taming the largest Freshmen class in recent years. Only by hard work did the class save their battered prestige from the wreck of the Frosh-Soph Brawl. But the class rallied around President Art McGrath and the crisis v as passed in safety. Scholastic honors were captured by Catherine Caltoft, Helen Woodcock, Dorothy Fountain, Alberta Starkey, Neska Jeffers, Ellen Young, Henry Trione, Charles Arnold, and Fritz Fleischer. Sporting fans watched Art McGrath, A1 Biondini, Don Falk, Bus Foster, Ted Speier, and Gene Flocchini uphold the honors of the Sophomore class on the gridiron, court, diamond, and track. Betty Fay, Catherine Caltoft, Doris Gunderson, Jean Hood, James Rasella, Henry Trione, Willard Woodcock, Don Falk, and Rod Belcher v ere mainstays in the dramatic productions of the year. Although their ranks have been decreased considerably since the day they entered as Freshmen, the Sophomores face the future unafraid and look forward to their upper division work as another opportunity to prove their abilities. President Art McGrath received able support from Vice-President A1 Biondini and Secretary-Treasurer Mary House. Art McGrath. PresidentSOPHOMORE CLASS Front row: H Howard. H. Woodcock. C. Caltoft.

To begin with they brought one of the largest classes—especially on the male side—in recent years. After turning on their would-be persecutors in the Soph-Frosh Brawl and walking off with the honors in that fracas, they were indeed welcome guests at the Freshman Reception. The Frosh decided their return dance would have to 09 unique so they waited until they got a unique idea before they made any plans. At last someone put his love for the "funny papers" into print and the Frosh came forth with a “Sadie Hawkin s Dance." It was really swell. But social affairs were only a part of Freshman activities. The class had an excellent scholastic record. Outstanding in this field were Frances Nye, Frances Larsen, Mary Borne-man, William Arvola, Merwyr. Riddle, William Sherf, Verne Cooperrider, Loland Westerlund, Merricn Miller, and Susan Wiison. In music Marianne Lambert, Walter Carr, Verne Cooper-rider, and Bud Myers proved the Freshmen knew their sharps and flats. Athletic stock soared to a new high with the contributions of the Class of '42. Such stars as Len Longholm, Bill Lee, Glenn Goble, Moe Musante, and Marshall Rousseau were discovered on the varsity gridiron. With Bill Hodges as president, the Freshmen have achieved a small place in the niche of college life, have done their share in music, drama, athletics, and social affairs and now consider themselves ready to become an integral part of college without further delay.

COMMERCIAL GRADUATES Every year Humboldt's commercial department grows larger and more efficient. Many students are realizing that a knowledge of business methods is an asset in any line of endeavor. One and two year courses are offered in business and a new commerce-social science major with the A. B. degree is now being offered to students who want a four year course in this field. Graduates of the two and four year courses hold their exercises at regular commencement time with graduates of the other fields. Placement percentage is high and Humboldt graduates have become well established in the business and professional field. Officers of thi3 years commercial class were: Jean Underwood, President; Jeanette Anderson, Vice-President; Berta Haggmark, Secretary-Treasurer.SNAPS OF THE SCHOOL YEAR A couple of Freshmen.

Mr. Leo Schussman is in charge of the teaching curriculum. His is the task of laying the foundation on which a student may erect his house of learning. Doctor Vernon Tolle, a new member on the Humboldt faculty, has won for himself the admiration of students, faculty members, and the community at large. As Director of the Training School he has developed a spirit of democratic cooperation. The training school is essentially an activity school and the principle of making school life an actual living experience is kept before all the teachers. Ruth Bostor Henry Cluxton Belle DicksonDepartment of Education Miss Ruth Bestor is Supervisor of the Primary Department. She is advisor of the Kindergarten Club whose activities are concerned with bettering conditions in the lower unit. The Supervisor of the Upper Grades is Miss Belle Dickson. Hers is the task of guiding students who are doing their teaching to children in “that difficult age." The training teachers Miss Dorothy Williams, Mrs. Estelle Koch, Miss Eleanor McKay and Mr. Henry Cluxton have brought many practice teachers through the trials of those first weeks "down the hill.” Leo Schussmcm Dorothy Williams Estelle Koch Eleanor McKayFront row: A.

That is what the kindergarten children think and that is one of the purposes of the Kindergarten Club—to make it fun to go to school. The club was organized to interest students in the Kindergarten-Primary Department. This group draws members from first year students, up through seniors, the supervisors, and the teachers of the primary department. Its activities are concerned with bettering conditions in the lower unit. Meetings were held twice a month at which times the members made clothes for dolls, new covers for doll beds, and cushions for the kindergarten room. They painted and redecorated the furniture in the lower grades. Many useful contributions were made by the club members, and many toys were put in condition for use. Members point to their organization as the shining example of the fact that women can get along without men. President Blanche Lowry had an able cabinet in Vice-President Lanette Gregory and Secretary-Treasurer Virginia Vincent. Miss Bestor was the club's advisor.

Reorganized in 1937, the S. T. A. has become a leading organization in the field of education. Membership is open to student teachers and members of the Curriculum, and Teaching II and III classes. The enrollment for the past year was over fifty. The purpose of this organization is to establish and to maintain a high standard of ethics among student teachers, to promote friendship and understanding, to discuss problems pertinent to the teaching field, and to bring the students and supervisors together in social contacts. The society completed affiliation with the California Teachers' Association this year. Delegates were sent to the state meetings of this body. Jack Bartlett represented Humboldt at the Los Angeles C. T. A. convention and Marjorie Cropley attended the spring conclave at San Francisco as official delegate. Many graduating student teachers took advantage of the membership privileges offered by the California Teachers' Association. Monthly meetings at the home of one of the members were always well attended. Interesting programs centered on educational trends were enjoyed along with social games and refreshments. Officers for the year were Myron Schussman, President; Roy Grand, Vice-President; Helen Connick, Secretary; and Lanette Gregory, Treasurer.Harry MacGinitie Department of Science One of the finest departments in the school this division is faced with the difficult task of meeting the science needs of the teacher training courses and at the same time offer a two year curriculum for undergraduates in the various fields of science, such as pre-engineering, pre-medical, and nursing courses. Doctor Harry MacGinitie, head of the department, is professor of physical sciences. Although his courses in chemistry and physics are knov n as the toughest in college he has turned out some of the highest scholastic records in school in these fields. To almost every student on the campus he is just "Mac.'' Doctor William I-anphere is in charge of the botanical sciences. Doctor Lanphere made a lasting impression when he taught at Humboldt in 1936-37 and he was a welcome addition to the faculty this year. He was active in the Science Club where he is advisor and was instrumental in organizing the College Ski Club. Doctor Doris Gillespie Niles in charge of the zoology department is noted for her fine, informal classes. "Doc" has that way of making the student learn even if he doesn't seem to want to do so.

The Science Club, the youngest society on the campus, has become a lusty infant since its rebirth in the spring of 1938. This group increased their membership by one hundred per cent over last year. They revised their old constitution and streamlined their activities. The field trip to Redding. Chico. Mt. Lassen, and Davis last spring aroused so much enthusiasm and interest that a similar trip north to the Oregon Caves and Crater Lake was made this year. Besides noon meetings and Saturday field trips to points of interest around the county, the society held a dinner-business meeting in the Social Unit each month. Any member with a yen to cook was allowed to show off his culinary arts for the "benefit" of the others. These k. p. duties were taken over by both men and women and all members joined in making the affairs a social and gastronomic success. Officers for the fall semester v ere Harold Jenkins, President; Irene Paddock, Vice-President; Jean Hess. Secretary; Freddie Jackson, Treasurer. In the spring the following took over the duties: Walter Shocker, President; Valerie Barker, Vice-President; Virginia Frederickson, Secretary; Ardys Goff, Treasurer; Freddie Jackson, Historian. Dr. Lanphere has been advisor and he and Mrs. Lanphere have contributed much to the success of Sigma Epsilon Rho.Department of Physical Education With twenty-nine undergraduate majors in tow, the three members of the department of physical education carried on an extensive program of gym classes. Aside from this they were quick to encourage and aid students in carrying on intra-mural tournaments in minor sports throughout the year. The department is composed of Miss Ann V. Craig, professor of physical education for women and head of the department; Mrs. Monica Hadley, assistant professor of physical education for women; and Herbert L. Hart, coach of inter-collegiate sports and professor of physical education for men. Miss Craig came to Humboldt in 1931 and has been on the Humboldt scene steadily with the exception of a trip to the South Seas in the fall of 1934. She likes being a faculty member of a small school because it affords the opportunity of closer contacts with students. Interested in meeting the demands of regular college students, she does her best to see that the health office and physical education classes meet these demands. Mrs. Hadley also came to Humboldt in 1931 and has been a faculty member since that time. As a department member she believes that women's physical education should provide a wide variety in activities offered and should be built around the needs and interests of the college women and provide for individual development. As an instructor she believes that students should be guided in their choice of an activity and is always willing to give individual aid. She believes that students should develop skill in some chosen activity which can be continued in later life for the benefit of their physical and social development. Coach Hart was a newcomer at Humboldt this year. He was graduated from Purdue in 1918 and was awarded the Big Ten Conference Medal for his scholastic and athletic ability. While at Purdue he participated in track, football, and basketball, being elected captain of the basketball team in his Junior year. He coached at Mt. Morris, Illinois, for two years and at Monmouth Col-'ege for fourteen years where he instituted a strong intramural and physical education plan aside from major sport programs. He considers inter-collegiate athletics educational as long as it is conducted properly. In competitive training he operates on the theory that players that are v ell taught will win a sufficient number of games. He puts stress on physical education of students rather than physical development. He believes that athletics have a great carry-over value in later life in their encouragement of good health habits and in their training men to meet new and different situations. Ann Craig Herbert Hart Monica HadleyVesta Moxon. President Women’s Athletic Ass’n. The Women's Athletic Association has proved to be the most active organization of the college women. On the shoulders of this group rests the responsibility of all women's athletics and the majority of their social events. Humboldt women opened their activity program by greeting the high school delegates to the "Greek Olympics." At this time the W. A. A. was hostess to the girls from Eureka, Fortuna, Areata, Ferndale, Orick, South Fork, Hoopa, and Del Norte high schools. The Olympics was a variety arrangement of the annual play day. Bessie Boehne was general chairman. The mermaid members began the year with a splash— in the Freshwater pool. The annual swimming party has become a jolly get-acquainted time for old and new gals of the Association. Next came the Initiation Banquet under the efficient chairmanship of President Vesta Moxon. New talent was uncovered in the ranks of the Frosh and promised lots of competition for upperclassmen. The Sports Spread. Individual Sports Day, and Co-Recreational Sports Day enlivened college life during the Spring semester. Major sport events of the year were hockey, volleyball, basketball, and baseball with general managers Myrtle Boehne, Mary Flocchini, Virginia Belloni, and Bessie Boehne brewing up the enthusiasm. By popular demand the Steamboat Shufile was brought back again this year. Chairman Doris Waldron, aided by a lovely new moon and soft music, produced a fitting climax to the year's activities W. A. A. officers for the year included: President—Vesta Moxon. Vice-President—Bessie Boehne. Secretary—Helen Connick. Treasurer—Marian Swap. Point Chairman—Barbara Crnich. Song Leader—Marthabel Scott.

Dana Kinsman and Miss Helen Garvin consists of the A Cappella Choir, the Little Symphony Orchestra. Men's and Women's Glee Clubs, besides the music curriculum. The choir, orchestra and glee clubs are under the direction of Mr. Kinsman, while Miss Garvin is in charge of the teacher training music courses. The Little Symphony Orchestra consists of college students and talented members from the surrounding communities. This year the Little Symphony accompanied "Hansel and Gretal," an ope- retta given by children from the College Elementary School and directed by Miss Helen M. Garvin. The Humboldt College Chorus presented Felix Mendlesohns oratorio "Elijah" on February 21 and 22. The Chorus consisted of the A Cappella Choir and the combined glee clubs. The guest soloists were Mr. Paul Johnson, tenor, from San lose, Mr. Joei Carter, baritone, from Stanford, and Mrs. J M. Garrison, soprano, from Eureka. The alto soloist was Miss Marthabel Scott of Humboldt State. The orchestra accompanied the oratorio.A CAPPELLA CHOIR Front row: M Mangum, J. Gregory, M. Wing, I. Carrington, L Swan, M.

Once an actor in Humboldt State productions, he now became the director of these productions, completing the cycle of rising from pupil to master. Theodore J Little was the man who thus became the guiding iight of an activity which is an integral part of Humboldt State College. Under the direction of Mr. Little, the Humboldt College Players presented three plays this year. Two were decidedly "different'' plays — varying from the standardized type of drama in both audience appeal and in production. The first was "The Night of January 16," a courtroom drama in which the audience represented the court room, while on the stage were judge's bench and counsels tables. A jury was picked from the audience and actually decided on the verdict of the trial of "Karen Andre." The second production of the year was "Yellow Jack," an historical play based on the war against yellow fever through the years. In this play, a setting approximating an Eliza- bethan stage was used—the action taking place on different levels without a realistic setting. The final play of the year was a light comedy, ' Her Master's Voice.' which was also presented at Chico State College as part of the annual play festival with Chico and San Francisco State. San Francisco visited Humboldt in the spring to present "George and Margaret." A short radio drama, "The State vs. Joe Miller." was presented by the College Players over station KIEM and at assemblies and for lodges. John Van Duzer, technical director, was responsible for the novel setting in "Yellow Jack" as well as for all scenery in Humboldt College Theatre productions. As in the past, the smallness of the stage hindered construction of elaborate sets, but as usual, the production department elicted much favorable comment for its more than adequate work. All in all. the department of drama contributes much enjoyment for students who take part in its plays, and for the students and the public v ho attend them.P. Elmore, C. Hine, B. Inskip, B. Unsoeld, R. Belcher, C. Speier, J. Hooven Alpha Psi Omega Alpha Psi Omega, the National Dramatic Fraternity, is the only national society represented at Humboldt State College. The Humboldt cast, Beta Alpha, has been active since 1931 when its charter was awarded. Membership in this society is awarded after the candidate has played several major roles in college dramatic productions. Members of the Alpha Psi Omega now at Humboldt are Sherman Washburn, Beryl Unsoeld, Laverne Elmore, John Van Duzer, William Inskip, Estelle Preston Koch, and Claire Speier, old members, and Carol Hine and Roderick Belcher v ho became members this year. Prominent among the activities of Alpha Psi Omega is the entertainment of visiting players at the play festivals with other state colleges, held annually at Humboidt State. Because of its small membership. Alpha Psi Omega attempts to sponsor no social events for the public at large, but rather restricts its activities to meetings and parties within the group itselt. Several of these gatherings were held during the year at which the phases of the theatre were discussed with a view toward the better interpretation of roles taken by the members, and toward a better understanding of the principles of acting and production.

A teacher in this field has to be aware of curren: events in the fields of politics, economics, world affairs, and every phase of social relationship. Humboldt is fortunate in having a social science department that is alive to any changes in these lields. Many an interesting, as well as instructive. filibuster has been held to discuss some new labor law or to investigate Hitler's latest purge. Doctor Homer P. Balabanis, head of the department, is cne of the most thorough and exacting examiners in school but his classes always sparkle with bits of humor (See page 91). Doctor Raymond Fisher takes care of the history, geography, and American government courses. The classes of Homer Arnold cover the fields of philosophy, mathematics, and surveying.I Department of English The English department is conducted by Maurice Hicklin, professor of English, and Mrs. Elma McCann Folsom, associate professor of English. Professor Hicklin has been a member of the Humboldt State faculty since 1925. With the exception of three years during which he taught half time and carried on administrative work as dean of the lower division the other half, his services have been confined to this department. Formerly in active newspaper work and at one time owner of his own newspaper, he has directed Maurice Hicklin I Elma Folsom the college news service and has been the advisor for the student paper. "The Lumberjack," since he joined the faculty. In conducting classes in English and journalism. Professor Hicklin is interested in getting each student to develop his special talents. Mrs. Folsom has been the other member of the English department since 1930. She graduated from the State College of Washington and has has done graduate work at Stanford and the University of California since becoming a member of the Humboldt State faculty. She believes that English has two important contributions to make to general education, namely, to increase students' power to think straight, and give them a better understanding of life through a knowledge of literature. In conducting classes in literature she likes to get students to consider it an art and to cultivate their own expression.Adella Johnson Department of French Miss Adella ("Madamoiselle") Johnson has the difficult task of coaching students through French courses. With classes ranging from the struggling beginners to the more advanced “eleve” Madamoiselle is continually occupied. Several delightful French luncheons were held in the south end of the Commons and many a student stopped to place his hand to his ear when he heard those French songs as sung by Humboldt Frenchmen. Miss Johnson was also advisor for Chi Sigma Epsilon, the scholarship honor society. Department of Art An important phase of modern teaching is the field of art. With present day emphasis on self-expression and individuality, art offers an excellent means of attaining this end. Mrs. Stella Little has the task of teaching students the principles of art and the means of guiding a child's work along these principles. Many students are enrolled in the advanced art courses preparatory to the major in art. Stella LittleCommercial Department The Commercial Department was started in the {all of 1930 with an enrollment of 15 students. Since that time there has been a steady increase in enrollment each year. The enrollment in the one and two-year commercial courses for this year was 82. The department staff is composed of two members. The department head is Bert F. Wilson, professor of commerce. Miss Imogene B. Platt, assistant professor of English, is the other member. Professor Wilson is a graduate of Stanford University. He has had several years experience as a California high school principal and 15 years successful business experience. Bert Wilson Miss Platt is a graduate of the University of Washington and has carried on post graduate work at Stanford. Aside from her duties in the commercial department this last year she taught a class in Spanish and was head resident of the dormitory. Vocations have become highly specialized today and are operated largely along business lines. Success in almost any type of work today is founded upon two things: a good general education, and specialized training in the particular line of work desired. Professor Wilson and Miss Platt believe that a commercial course given in a college offers the student an unusual opportunity to secure this two-fold type of education, and. at the same time, avail himself of the cultural and social advantages of college life. Imogene PlattHorae® Jenkins Department of Industrial Education Receiving students from many different fields with different objectives in College training, the department of industrial education under Professor Horace R. Jenkins has a three-fold aim: to prepare prospective grade school teachers to conduct classes in shop work, to aid all students to meet the demands of community service, and to give them an understanding of the industrial process which is so important in modem life. A wide range of classes have arisen from these demands and are all conducted by Professor Jenkins. Aside from the general phases of wood construction, metal work, and ceramics, the department turned out over twenty pairs of skiis and six boats this year. Professor Jenkins has built up a line of Drivers and Delta machinery in the 20 years that he has been here and is now looking forward to classes in aeronautical engineering. Professor Jenkins, known as "Pop' to all his students, likes to have several informal parties a semester for each of his classes. Apart from his departmental duties, he has sold an average of five articles a year for the past ten years to national publications, including The Popular Science Monthly. Department of Home Economics The home economics department undei the direction of Mrs. Ellon Walter offers a number of elective courses of general interest to women students enrolled in any department. Mrs. Walter joined the Humboldt faculty in 1929. In 1934 she left the faculty but returned after a four-year absence. In conjunction with her duties as associate professor of homo economics, she has directed the College Commons and supervised home economics work in the College Elementary School. Mrs. Walter believes that home economics makes its contribution to a broad general education through the direct application of the arts and sciences to the building of a philosophy of personal and home life and through providing vocational and avocational opportunities. She believes that courses best developed to fulfill these purposes center around personal and family relationships, economics, child development, food, clothing problems, and home management.

Associated With President Nick Barbieri at the helm student affairs sailed along on a comparatively calm sea of rallies, assemblies, dances, and political meetings. There were the usual number of debates on financial matters and a meeting or two enlivened by the old social unit question of "to be or not to Students be?” Sherman Washburn, as Vice-President, was always the efficient, well-mannered chairman of the Board of Control. Doris Gunderson filled the office of Secretary and Fred Hibler took care oi the Treasurer's office. Sherman Washburn, Vice-President Fred Hibler, TreasurerS. Washburn. D. Gunderson, H.

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL Executive Council and Board of Control The Ex-Council (as it is called because the word "executive' takes too long in this age oi speed) is the guiding force in student body affairs and especially financial matters. Although the cash reserve was cut to the quick the Council managed all transactions in a business like manner and the student body credit is still "plenty good." The usual problems of gambling and general roudiness presented themselves to this years Board but were met with experienced hands and all in all student conduct was maintained at an excellent level.

"No paper this week, fellows," was lack's only reply as he strolled off down the hall. But, of course, when students and other enrollees were leaving classes the next period, there was the paper and there was Ellis with that "the-paper-always-comes-out-on-time" look. The Lumberjack had many trials and tribulations this year. A change in the Lumberjack staff and also the change in the staff of the Areata Union, where the Lumberjack went to press, were some of the major headaches for the editor and faculty advisor. Mr. Maurice Hicklin. With the aid of the news reporting class and the able help of the sports editor. Red Belcher, and the assistant editor, John Thornton, the Lumberjack was published once a week with complete campus news coverage. Martin Cabalzar replaced Keith Emenegger as ousiness manager for the spring semester, Emenegger having graduated to a position with a county publication. Bob Madsen, Valerie Barker. Esther Ritola, and Lolly Scholl deserve praise for their special reporting. lack Ellis, Editor. Martin Cabalzar, Business Manager Rosie Ivancich, Exchange Editor. Front row: J Ellis, V. Barker. L.

"Sempervirens” — "always living." This indicates a perennial state rather than an annual state-even if this is a yearbook. It was this thought that forced ye editor and ye staff to keep going during periods of dark discouragement. Jim Hall spent so much time in the dark room he couldn't see to do his French when he finally came out. Jim made over 700 pictures for this year's book before the final 250 were separated from the chaff. Sherman Washburn was his assistant. Doctor Lanphere and Doctor MacGinitie deserve a vote of thanks for their help in the photography department. Henry Trione did a thorough job on the business end with Keith Emenegger as assistant during the early part of the year. When the annual went to press the staff put up the "DO NOT DISTURB” sign and heaved a long sigh of relaxation as they tilted back in the easy chair and just rested for once. Jim Hall, Photographer.

Chi Sigma Epsilon The smallest but perhaps the busiest society on the campus is the upper division scholarship society. Chi Sigma Epsilon. In the fall the society gave a program of music and readings for the purpose of raising funds for their scholarship grant. These programs have made a reputation for themselves and are always well attended and well liked. Mrs. Gordon Manary, of Scotia, donated her services to the society and was presented in a dramatic reading. The proceeds from this program also went to the scholarship fund. From this fund Chi Sigma Epsilon presents each year a scholarship to a graduating senior of Humboldt or Del Norte counties. At the fall pledging assembly two new members were elected. Valerie Barker, Junior student, and James Hall, Senior student, were the candidates. The Honor Luncheon was held following the assembly ar.d the Initiation Dinner the following week. The society claims the distinction of having the only active alumni participation on the campus. These Initiation Dinners are always well attended by the alumni members. In May the society held their spring honor assembly. Honors from various campus organizations were presented at this time and pledges to the Rousers, the Sophomore honor society, were announced. Two informal social teas, one in the fall and one in the spring, were held in honor of those students making semester honors.Front row: C. Arnold, F Fleischer. Back row: D. Gunderson, C Caltoft, D. Fountain. Rousers The Rouser society is made up of the eight high Freshmen of the preceeding year as announced by Chi Sigma Epsilon, the Rouser s parent organization. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship, participation in extra curricular activities, and character. Last year's pledges were Charles Arnold, Catherine Caltoft, Fritz Fleischer, Dorothy Fountain, Waldo Gossard, Helen Woodcock, and Ellen Young. The Rousers' activities consist almost entirely of cooperating with Chi Sigma Epsilon in their pro- jects. Under the leadership of President Doris Gunderson, the society had charge of decorations for all programs, luncheons, and teas. They were in full charge of the Honor Luncheon for the new Rouser pledges. During the first semester the society lost Waldo Gossard v ho transferred, and in the spring Ellen Young left school. Those remaining, however, worked hard on all activities and maintained high scholastic records.Snooky Edsall, Vice-Pros. Fred Jackson, Sect.-Treas. The Men’s Association The Men's Association is the He-man club at Humboldt, being one of the few organizations on the Campus exclusively for men. Meetings were held several times a semester in the auditorium and the society's chief functions were found in the social upheavals of the year. Officers elected the first week of the school year were Francis Givins, president; Snooky Edsall, vice-president; and Fred Jackson, secretary-treasurer Membership tallied a hundred and fifty strong. Starting out the first semester, the association sponsored a "Heilo Day" during which students wore cards on the front of their shirts with the word "Hello" and their names and classes printed on them for the benefit of new students. Next came the Faculty Dinner held at the Bella Vista in honor of the new members of Humboldt State's Faculty. During the month of October football was in full swing and the Association remained quietly behind the scenes; then out of a clear sky it announced the first Jam Sossion ever to be held in Northern California. John McGrath was chairman. With the best local swingsters obtainable and, also, the best refreshments the jitterbugs held forth on Sunday, November 6, in the auditorium. Most of the members were concerned with basketball in November and December and let their social talents lie dormant until spring vacation. Immediately following their return they released a one act play entitled "Henry's Mail-order Wife." directed by Fred Jackson which proved to be the dramatic upset of the year. Parts of the two women therein were taken by men. On May 12th they held their annual Bam Dance in the gym with Jim Cady as chairman. The rafters rocked to the tender notes of Elmore's band and when the shuffle of twittering feet was stilled at the wee hour, the dance was proclaimed the best ever. The Men's Picnic came next and this was their last act of the school year. Rod Belcher was chairman and tooted before hand that it would be bigger, better, and "wetter" (?) than ever. It was held on the exclusive glades near Riverside and the truth of its greatness never reached campus opinion.GIRLS' DORM Front row: D. Fraga, A Harrington. E. Johnson, M. Kemp, M House.

Humboldt State football began its so-called ' third era" under Coach Herb Hart, who came to Humboldt from Monmouth College, Illinois. With only three weeks of practice under their belt, the Lumberjacks, relatively inexperienced but willing, took on Southern Oregon Normal in the first game of the season and defeated the SONS 18-7 in a game marred by ragged play. In the next game Humboldt travelled to San Jose to meet the high-scoring San Jose State Spartans. San Jose scored 2 touchdowns on the ground and five via the air route to rout the Lumberjacks 48-0. Humboldt came back from this defeat to meet California Polytechnic in a thriller that found Cal Poly breaking a 6-6 tie with a touchdown pass in the last 10 seconds of the game to win 13-6. Then, after two defeats in a row, the Lumberjacks finally started clicking and upset the favored St. Mary's Frosh 19-0. This was State's best played game of the year. The following week Humboldt took to the road once more, this time to meet the Chico State Wildcats. Working to overcome an early lead, Humboldt played good ball and went on to win 13-6. In the final game of the season the Lumberjacks again had to come from behind to defeat a very strong Oregon Normal team 20-12.—r Gomes. Ellis, Honderson HUMBOLDT—18 SONS—7 The inexperience of the Humboldt team showed up throughout this opening game of the season, but the Lumberjacks superior power and passing attack overcame the Ashland team. In the first quarter Humboldt broke the ice when Nick Barbieri scored on a short lunge after a sustained drive sparked by Barbieri and Snooky Edsall. Humboldt's two other scores came via the air route, Barbieri and Bill Lee each throwing a touchdown pass to Bill Farber. Oregon's score came as a result of a bad pass from our center. The backfield play of Barbieri, Lee, and Edsall was outstanding while in the line Farber, Musante, and Gomes were bulwarks of defense Fumbles and numerous offside penalties marred the showing of the Hilltoppers.Above: Monoweather—null said Above. left: Goble, Madsen, Gomes As staunch as the Republicans.

HUMBOLDT—0 SAN JOSE—48 Just out of Humboldt's class—that was the story of this game, Humboldt's worst defeat within recent years. Using five teams, Coach Dud de Groot of the Spartans threw everything in the book at the Lumberjacks. However, Humboldt was not outclassed as much as the score would indicate. The Spartans took advantage of Humboldt's weak pass defense to score five touchdowns on passes, but could not penetrate the Humboldt line consistently. The old standbys. Farber, Meneweather, and Gomes played fine ball and the whole team did as well as could be expected against a school with ten times the enrollment of Humboldt. The game dealt a hard blow to the Lumberjacks when Moe Musante, star freshman guard, was put out for the season with an injured knee.HUMBOLDT—6 CALIFORNIA POLY—13 “One ol the most thrilling games on a Humboldt gridiron"—this was the opinion of the spectators who saw the Mustangs break a 6-6 tie in the last ten seconds of the game with a long pass. Humboldt scored first when Len Longholm, frosh backfield star, led a drive to the Col-Poly goal and scored from the one yard-line. Throughout the rest of the game with Barbieri throwing and Meneweather running, Humboldt threatened but could not score. In the third period. Solway, fleet Mustang half, took a reverse and ran down the sidelines 67 yards to pay dirt. The game appeared to be a cinch tie when in the last ten seconds, Hess lofted a pass to Solway in the end zone to administer a heartbreaking defeat to the Lumberjacks. Meneweather, Longholm and Barbieri shone in the Humboldt backfield while Langdon, Farber and Givins turned in strong line games. Another highlight was the open field tackling of 135 pound Biii Lee.

MARY'S FROSH—0 The Lumberjacks really redeemed themselves in this, their best played game of the season. Humboldt grabbed an early lead when Barbieri passed to Meneweather, who side-stepped his way to a touchdown. In the second period, Givins ran fifteen yards to score on an end-around play, after Barbieri's passes brought the ball to scoring territory. The third score came on a pass from Lee to Givins, good for fifteen yards. The game ended with the ball in possession of the Humboldt reserves on the St. Mary's one-foot line. An outstanding feature of this victory was the play of five of Humboldts freshmen. Bill Lee, Glenn Goble, Len Longholm, Cap Torp and Marshall Rousseau. HUMBOLDT—13 CHICO-6 Renewing an old rivalry after dropping this game from the schedule for a year, the Lumberjacks invaded Chico and came through with an impressive victory over the fighting Wildcats. Chico drew first blood when fullback Kollenborn sneaked through center and ran 31 yards to score. The conversion attempt was blocked. Humboldt came back to score three minutes before the half ended with Earl Meneweather running 8 yards around end to the goal line. A Barbieri pass to Henderson was instrumental in setting up the touchdown. When Nick passed to Meneweather for the conversion Humboldt took a lead that was never relinquished.

Passing and pass defense were telling factors in the victory of the Lumberjacks. Chico completed only one pass during the game.

HUMBOLDT—20 OREGON NORMAL-12 In this see-saw game, Humboldt defeated a team v ith a ground attack and defense, stronger than that of San Jose; however, superior passing and pass defense again was the deciding factor. The Wolves jumped into an early lead when Meeker, halfback, raced 51 yards to a touchdown. Humboldt came back to take the lead when Barbieri passed to Meneweather. the play going 37 yards to score. In the second half, the Wolves powered their way 45 yards to a touchdown on straight drives through the middle to again take the lead, 12-7. This was overcome when big Harold Langdon, tackle, raced to the end zone to fall on a bad pass from the Oregon center. Earl Meneweather finished his Humboldt football career in a blaze of glory, running through the whole Oregon team 40 yards for the final score of the game. This was the last game for four of Humboldt's finest football players, Earl Meneweather, Bill Farber, Bob Madsen, and Nick Barbieri. The loss of these men will be keenly felt, but a great many first stringers and reserves will return to form a strong nucleus for next year's team.Abovo: Cal-Poly shifts to the right.

Coach Hart stepped in and took over the reins of what was to become one oi Humboldt s best teams. Humboldt won five and lost three college games and won seven out of eight games to win the championship of the Humboldt County Independent League. SOUTHERN OREGON NORMAL SCHOOL In this series, Humboldt took its first college double-header in several years by defeating the foes from the north by scores of 46-32 and 40-19. At no time in either game did the SONS threaten the Humboldters led by Givins, who scored 16 and 15 points in the games CHICO STATE Chico showed a tight zone defense which the Lumberjacks could not penetrate in the first game. With Schleuter leading the scoring, the Wildcats won by a score oi 35-32. In the second game. Humboldt was able to cope with the defense of Chico and won easily to the tune of 43-32. Lozensky was the scoring star for Humboldt in this game. Upper loft: Seidell. Center, above: Lozonsky. Upper right: Saunderson. Left: Biondini. Lower left: Givins. SAN FRANCISCO STATE Humboldt again took a double victory in this series by scores of 38-23 and 51-33. Fifty-one was the highest score ever made by the Green and Gold in college competition. The Gaters fought gamely, but were no match for the offensive thrusts of Givins and Lozensky of the Lumberjacks. It was in the second game that Humboldt played their peak game of the year.T SAN JOSE STATE Travelling to the prune city to face the high powered Spartan team, Humboldt lost its only double header of the season by scores of 57-40 and 44-31. Both games saw Bendeich of San Jose "hot" and the Spartan fast break working to perfection. Humboldt never got going at the pace they reached in the San Francisco series, and consequently never had a chance. Givins was the only consistent scorer in these two games. Kncoling: W.

' I 5 STATE COLLEGE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT Held at San Jose during Christmas vacation this tournament, the first of its kind ever attempted, brought together the seven state colleges of California in competition. The games played were 20 minutes, or equivalent to a half of a regular game. San Francisco proved to be the best offensive team with Humboldt tied for second; Chico was the best defensive team, while San Diego walked off with the honors in wins and losses. The first night the Lumberjacks defeated San Francisco 23-22 and tied San Jose 21-21. The next night, San Diego came from behind to nose out Hum-bold by a score of 22-20. In the second game of the evening, Humboldt beat Santa Barbara 22-18. On the third night Humboldt walloped Fresno 31-13, and lost to Chico 17-13.

Humboldt s outstanding performers were Vern Thornton, who took three second places in the shot, discus, and javelin; Don Mahan, who took tv o seconds in the sprints; Alvin Biondini. v ho took a second in the high hurdles and a fourth in the lows; and Wally Lozensky, who scored in the mile and two mile. While Humboldt v as defeated their shov ing was very creditable for the small squad. Later in the season, the Lumberjacks met Southern Oregon Normal in a dual meet at Albee Stadium in Eureka. When the relay was over Humboldt was on the long end of a 102-29 score. Thornton was high point man with four firsts. Mahan took three firsts. Lozensky won the two long distant runs, and Edsall captured firsts in the 880 and broad jump. Baseball Tennis Again this year Humboldt State's netsters made a barnstorming tour of the San Francisco Bay Region, playing various college teams. Last year the college defeated the Armstrong Business College team and while not winning made good showings against San Mateo Junior College and the San Jose Tennis Club. This year, for the first time, Humboldt entered into intercollegiate baseball competition. Games were played with Santa Rosa Junior College both at Santa Rosa and at Eureka. Earlier in the year, Humboldt defeated last year's champions of the Redwood League. Samoa-Arcata, by a score of 11 to 10. From now on Humboldt v ill have a regular collegiate baseball schedule. Archery Under the tutelage of Mrs. Hadley, archery was again a favorite sport with Humboldt students this year. Many developed into good shots and now draw a bowstring with the best of them. Archery attracted more participants than any other one sport at Humboldt ever has.Front row: C V ilson. S. Edsall. P Elmcre, A Biondini. L Seidell. F Saunderson. ! Henderson, B. Sherf.

The chief function of this group is to award letters significant of athletic prowess. This year the Block H Society established set rules for the awarding of letters, replacing the old hap-hazard method of awards. This year, also, the group was able to award letters for baseball and track—for several years neither sport has been carried on in collegiate competition. Still a young organization, the Block H. Society bids fair to become one of the most active groups at Humboldt State College. Officers during the past year were: President ......................................
