MEN ' S GLEE CLUB During the first week of the fall qiiatcr each year, the Men ' s Glee Club is chosen by individual trial from over a hundred competitors. Men who are chosen are those who have voices both in tune and of good quality. After they have rehearsed twice each week during the fall quarter, the men are required to sing in quartets, and all who are able to do so are taken into the club for the winter cjuarter, From this group a small chorus of thirty voices is chosen each year; this chorus, known as The Iowa State Singers, makes an annual spring tour. This year a new organization, called the Varsity Quartet, was formed to make the tour. Members of the quartet are Robert Young, Don Austin, William Root and Gordon Smith. The Men ' s Glee Club, together with the Women ' s Glee Club and a large group of other singers from the campus, made up the Festival Choir of 350 voices, which gave the twentieth presentation of Handel ' s " Messiah " in December under the direction of Professor Tolbert MacRae. In addition to this, the club appears in their annual Campus Variety program, a Twilight Musicale program and at other college functions.

IOWA STATE RHYTHM CLUB Swing is the thing with the Iowa State Rhythm Club, a three-year-old organization which elects a person to member- ship only when he has proved himself to be a master swingster. Back in 1936 the club was organized to give the students who devote most of their time to playing in orchestras a chance to win some recognition for themselves since they have so little time to engage in oiuside activities pf other sorts. Limited to fifteen undergraduate members, the club works together as an orchestra unit and develops a highly individual style. Outside of their special rehearsal and program times, the individual members are scattered throughout a number of other cam] us band organizations. " Jitterbug " addicts of Iowa State heard a program after their own hearts when the Rhythm Club presented a Campus Varieties program on February 17. Wilma Highland, a former club member, did honors on the vocals for the evening. An enthusiastic audience crowded Great Hall and had a great time shaking shoulders and stamping feet in time with the " jamming. " Ted Rucckcrt, Ijcating oiu hot licks on his drum, and Bob Dix, blowing a torrid trumpet, won the coveted keys presented by the club each year to the two members showing the most ' I ' dji lira ' : I)i .

On March 24 Memorial Union played host to all of Iowa State at its first great open house. The Rhythm Club, pro- viding some of the most popular free entertainment, " gave forth " in Great Hall. The Green Gander gave recognition to many Rhythm Clubbers when the fall issue featured a dance band article by the club publicity manager, I ' ed Rueckert. Others were shown in characteristic poses in the accompanying pictures. In the spring, when the grass is a grab-and-a-half high and the ants run rampant through picnic food— if any— the club holds its aimual combination jam session and picnic.
