A Step up the ladder of Success
The drama department initiated it
by the presentation of the three act
,play "Dark of the Moon" by Howard
Richardson and William Berney.
Enthusiasm in drama students is
reflected in attendance at plays.
"Public response is good," says
Ernest P. Mauk, head of the drama
department. "During the 10 perform-
ances of 'Summer and Smoke' in the
Little Theater bungalow, we had an
attendance of only 390. 'Dark of the
lVloon,' the first play in the new
building, brought in 1,600 persons in
In agreement with Mauk's view is
Duane Ament, drama major. Al-
though he attended two other col-
leges before coming to Valley, Ament
says that equipment at Valley is "the
best I've ever used in my theater
Not only the actors but also the
college musicians experienced the
thrill of using a new building for the
first time. And this building is not
just another classroom building with
a piano moved in.
Of the new building, Richard
Knox, head of the department, says,
"It is the most beautiful and func-
tional music building in the city."
Spaciousness of the new building
was expressed by Diana Ingalls,
music student, when speaking of the
"great feeling of not being so
Students.and teachers alike feel
that new spirit has been added to the
department along with the new
building. The ability, of being able to
use any one of the five teaching sta-
tions without conflicting with the
other four is appreciated by Valley's
musicians after use of the small
bungalow across Ethel Avenue.
Replacing the two temporary
bungalows used as a cafeteria is a
spacious new cafeteria with large
dining rooms, small dining rooms and

Traditional college bull sessions
over a cup of coffee are always in
progress during the school day.

VALLEY'S NEW LIFE continued
From the opening of school, faith-
ful fans cheered a losing football
team through the long season under
the leadership of yell king Gary Pat-
terson. They were rewarded for their
enthusiasm, however, when basketball
came along and the Monarchs boasted
a winning squad.
Enthusiasm, not only in athletics
but in all facets of college life, has
been in evidence this year at Valley.
Possibly the new buildings helped
revive the school spirit Valley was
known for when the college first
In this school year 1961-62, the col-
lege campus has begun to take on an
air of permanence. The many arcades
join the new buildings and establish
a mall at the heart of the campus.
Buildings for special activities have
provided modern permanent facil-
ities to replace the bungalows of the
Monarchs, '62 version, will remem-

new drama building, the first one of
its kind on a junior college campus

Typical of Valley's
instructors is Dr.
Aura-Lee Ageton, who
is always happy to be
of help to students.

Athletes at Valley held a second
official dedication preceding the first
basketball game. They felt that the
guest speaker at the original dedica-

heart in it. Speaker at the original
affair was Dr. Robert Maynard
Hutchins, who abolished football
when he was president at the Uni-
versity of Chicago.
