TdE staff of the 1934 Touchstone was, from the outset, faced with a very difficult problem —that of producing a hook at less than half the cost of previous Touchstones and, at the same time, upholding the precedent set by them.
A less expensive hook called for a treatment which would not he a cheap copy of what the hook could have been if more money were available. The fact that the year 1934 marked the centennial of free public schools in our commonwealth offered an opportunity to do the hook in the style of a century ago and thus eliminate one of the most expensive items in hook production; namely, copper halftone engravings. However, the splendid co-operation of the various school organizations made it possible to include a separate section of these halftone illustrations.
All illustrations in the hook proper are done in the woodcut style, the method used, to a great extent, one hundred years ago. The paper is an antique finish, and the Bodoni type-face, popular at that time, is used in the printing.
This combination brings forth a book which does not aim to follow the traditional college annual. Sections have been broken down and advertisements have been omitted from its pages to be carried on through a bulletin board system. The staff has tried to make a book which will live on and be a cherished possession of each student.
To our faculty adviser, Mr. Burl N. Oshurn, who, though lie had no official connection with the class, very graciously gave much of his time and talent to the production of this work, goes the sincere appreciation and gratitude of the entire class of 34.

A CENTURY OF PUBLIC EDUCATION IN PENNSYLVANIA By Ralph Yoke
ON this on© hundredth anniversary year of free public school education in Pennsylvania, it is liltiri” that we devote these pages to a review of the progress made by education during the past century. It is our purpose here to present the highlights of the history of education from its beginnings to the present.
The law creating free schools was passed in 1834, but the seeds from which it grew were sown throughout the province almost two centuries before.
Since the most numerous early settlers of this state were the Swedes, Dutch. German, and Quakers, it is necessary that we know the attitude taken toward education by the first residents. In the early part of the seventeenth century the Swedes were reported to he better versed in the elements of knowledge than any other European country. Holland was the first nation of Europe to establish a system of public schools similar to the schools now known by that name. These four groups of people
curried their interest in education to the frontiers of Pennsylvania without knowing that they were luying the foundations of a great system of public instruction in a great commonwealth.
When the Second Assembly of the Colony met at Philadelphia on March 10, 1683 the following ideals were expressed in part:
“And to the end that poor as well as rich may he instructed in good and commendable learning, which is to he preferred before wealth. Be it enacted, That all persons in this Province and Territories thereof, having children, and all the guardians and trustees of orphans, shall cuuse such to lie instructed in reading and writing, so that they may be able to read the Scriptures and to write bv the time they attain to twelve years of age; and that then they he taught some useful trade or skill; that the poor may work to live. And in case «uch parents, guardians, or overseers shall he found deficient in this respect, every such parent or guardian shall pay for each child, five pounds except there should appear an incapacity in body or understanding to hinder it." This was one of the most significant laws ever passed in the state, and paved the way toward the building of our great educational structure. Although the differences in language and religion prevented the full realization of these ideals the parents provided such education for their children as they found most convenient.
As might lie expected, early progress was slow since the hardships of pioneer life had to he met and religious preju-

dices had to be overcome. The early scIiooIIioubcs were very simple and crude, poorly lighted and heated. The type of instruction was as crude as the buildings and facilities. Slates and pen cils and the blackboards were not used until after the Revolutionary War, and free texts could not he had until 1893. The teachers themselves were often poorly paid men whom society at large banned from its sphere.
In spite of the low standards of the teachers of early years, we find several men whose scholarly attainments and devotion to their work gave them outstanding positions of respect in their communities. Some of the best known were: Enoch Flower, who had been teacher in England for twenty years before beginning his work in Pennsylvania and Francis Daniel Postorius, first master of a school established by the Friends at Germantown in 1701. lie is described as having known seven different languages, a n d h c i n g w c 11 versed in science and philosophy. Christopher Dock, one of the greatest of the Germans, taught for over fifty years on the Skip-pack. His school was mostly patronized by Men non it es ami other plain German people.
As society in the commonwealth developed. the more progressive parents demanded that all children he entitled to a free education, since heretofore every child had not shared an equal opportunity. After years of struggle this sentiment finally led to the passing of the Free School Act of 1834. This Act was not passed, however, without first encountering some opposi-

tion. Several religious denominations were opposed to a secular education, separated from the churches, 'flic German people believed that mass education was dangerous, and that it would eventually destroy the mother-tongue.
During the first year that the free school system was in operation only 536 districts accepted the provisions of I ho Act. Today there are 585 school districts providing a free education for their children.
Along with the growth of the elementary schools has come the same gradual expansion of the secondary education program of the Commonwealth. The first school in Pennsylvania to he recognized as of secondary grade was the William Penn Charter School, organized in Philadelphia about 1689. During the next two centuries more schools ft d lowed this, the most typical of which were Kim her’s Hoarding School at Yellow Springs, near Phoenixvillc; the East Bradford Hoarding School, established in 1817. The French Creek Hoarding School for girls, was instituted in 1817. This last school was confined to no particular religious class. The enrollment consisted of twenty-five scholars; and the curriculum presented reading, writing, bookkeeping, English Composition, geography, ami needlework. ‘‘Politeness and good manners arc referred to as sufficient to regulate the children's deportment." Everything was done by rule; at the ring of a hell the scholars marched two by two according to their size to the refectory. At the close of the day the girls met together to hear a portion

of the Scriptures read. It was said that this was a company of girls perfectly satisfied and happy, and orderly in do portment.
Another early secondary school was the Newgarden Hoarding School, started in 1808, ami situated on the Lancaster and Newport turnpike. The school was originally designed to teach tnathe malic and science. Applications for admission were made from all parts of the union. Enoch Ixrwis was the teacher, and lie early furnished himself with the apparatus to illustrate his science clearly.
Some of his pupils themselves became teachers of distinction.
The growth of the public high school was comparatively slow. In 1860 tin •re were only six such schools in the state. In 1887 the legislature passed general laws authorizing the establishment of high schools, and by 1933 our state boasted of 1,215 high schools.
In the growth of our college and universities we find a source of distinctive and far-reaching interest. The University of Pennsylvania, the largest and oldest in the state, was founded by Benjamin I'ranklin, and was chartered in 1753. Its present charter was granted in 1791.
Although Moravian College started as a women's seminary in 1742, Dickinson College, chartered in 1783, in reality represents the first college chartered as such in Pennsylvania. Associated with the founding of this venerable old institution are such names as John Dickinson and Benjamin Hush, two of our state’s outstanding Colonial characters. The history of this college dates
Margaret M. Burke Phoenixville. Pa.
back to the very year in which Great Britain acknowledged the independence of the American colonics. The first chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society to he established in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was instituted here in 1887.
We might mention many of our other institutions of higher learning in connection with the history of education in the state, but we find our general efforts confined to the realization of the advancement made by all of our colleges and universities. Although today these institutions exist for the preparation of nil'll and women for practically every profession, we must not lose sight of tin fact that the founding of almost all of our early institutions of higher education was motivated by the desire of the various religious denominations to express themselves in the form of moral and religious education. At present Pennsylvania boasts of fifty-live accredited degree-granting colleges, exclusive of the Teachers’ Colleges.
Of particular interest to us at Mil-lersville is the provisions made by the state for the preparation of teachers. When the law of 1834 was established there were very few teachers available who were trained in accordance with modern teaching standards. The early colleges and aendeniics then in existence furnished a few teachers. It is interesting to note that both the colleges and academies received grants of money from the state on condition that a small number of young persons of poor families would be trained as teachers, free of charge. The great majority of the

teachers in 1831 were young men and women who had just completed the upper grades of the common schools. The professional training of the entire group of teachers was poor, to say the least. The inspectors of the school districts had neither the educational qualifications nor the professional foresight essential to the organization of definite and practical standards of teacher certification.
With the growth of discontent with this situation, attempts were finally made to provide hotter means of preparing teachers for their work. We at Millcrsville should he vitally interested in a report taken from the Pennsylvania School Journal for June, 1855, which stated that in the Lancaster County Normal School at Millcrsville, under the direction of County Superintendent James P. Wickersham, there were at that time approximately 150 students in the normal department and 170 pupils in the training school.
One of the most significant milestones in the history of education in this Commonwealth was reached when the Normal School Act was passed on May 20, 1857.
The provisions of this Act divided the state into twelve districts in which normal schools might he established, and set up a nuniher of requisites which a normal school had to possess. However, there was no state support provided, and the control and support of these schools were placed in the hands of private enterprises. Although a number of academies and county normal schools attempted to meet the requirements,
i 'i tv If
the Lancaster County Normal School at Millcrsville was the only existing institution that met the requirements for recognition as a State Normal School.
Definite State approval was granted to Millersville on December 3, 1859. The last of our present State Teachers Colleges to he established was that at East Stroudsburg, on March 23, 1893. The early enrollments were low, because of the fact that the education to he secured at these institutions was mediocre, the school year short, and salaries rather low.
From time to time the State made appropriations towards the building programs and running expenses of these schools. Finally, in 1911, the School Code provided for the purchase of the normal schools.
With the advantage gained h y State ownership, the schools began to make improvements in their property and in the opportunities they offered for professional preparation. At first only two year courses were given; later, three year courses were added in certain fields.
The splendid growth of these institutions continued until finally, in 1926. tin! State Normal Schools were authorized as State Teachers Colleges, with four year courses leading to degree of Hachelor of Science in education. One of the most noteworthy additions to the scope of work in the Teachers’ Colleges is the provision provided for specific training in special fields, such as art. commercial education, health education, music, home economics, industrial arts, library and kindergarten education.

gram of education would not he com plete without mentioning the growth made along the special lines of education. It is necessary to mention here the fact that in the School Code of 1911 provision was made for the education of mentally handicapped children. The Act provided that if the parents or guardians of deficient children between the ages of eight and sixteen years were not able to defray the expense, such children might he educated in some institutions outside of the school district at the expense of the district.
The demands of parents for improved health conditions in the schools led to the founding of the State Department of Health on June 6, 1905. The earliest type of health service consisted mainly of the examination of those children who were referred to us having symptoms of communicable diseases. One of the first steps in the program providing attention for the general health of school children was the provision for a physical examination of each child. This led to the employment of special school nurses. At the present time the State lias about five hundred nurses employed in its public schools.
In the school laws of 1911 physical training was included as one of the subjects that might he taught. Today many of the districts in the State have placed exceptional emphasis upon the health programs included in their curricula.
Much could he said about the growth of art and music education in our schools. Suffice it for us to realize that these contributions to the enrich-

ment of the child's everyday life have made steady and worthwhile progress along with the general academic routine. Today all of the elementary and many of the secondary teachers of the State are qualified to teach music in their classrooms. Public School Libraries, too, have grown considerably in the past decade and the new methods of teaching and extended curricula give promise of extending the service of school libraries in years to come.
Inasmuch as extra-curricular activities play such on important part in education today it might he well for us to notice that this type of student interest was unheard of in our earliest schools.
The progress of extra-curricular work was slower in the elementary schools than in the secondary. The demands of students for a program of activity to help broaden the experiences of school life led to the development of our present day program. Perhaps the earliest forms of extra-curricular activity was the literary society. Another early expression was the organization of student government. In 1777 the hoys at William Penn Charter School organized a court. Tin students of this school also showed a great deal of interest in journalistic activity. Perhaps the first printed student paper in America was The Athenian, published by the students at Athens Academy. Athens, Pennsylvania. These various forms of activity have grown into the present-day program of dramatics, debating publications, and athletics.

general it is only natural that grent changes should take place in the curricula of the school- . In the early colonial schools especially those controlled hy religious influences, tin classics were the main phase of the program offered for study. In contrast to this, the private masters devoted more attention to the practical subjects. The curriculum in the early academies, for the most part, was unorganized, and the students were usually permitted to select tin subjects which appealed to them most. The public high schools which developed later, based their curricula on those of the academics. The vast majority of them were one-curriculum schools. Since 1831, however, the changes in the program of study have been most significant and the present day curricula arc based upon the social and civic needs of life today.
Other noteworthy facts regarding Pennsylvania’s general educational progress can he mentioned only in brief here. The Pennsylvania State Education

Association has grown from a mere organization of teachers interested in forming a brotherhood to what is today the largest voluntary state association of educational workers in thc United States.
The need for remedying the irregular attendance situation gave rise to the law of 1895 which was the first compulsory school attendance law enacted in the Stule. Provisions were also made for the prosecution of parents in cases of non-attendance.
The facts then present the outstanding points of interest in the wonderful stages of advancement that education has gone through since the establishment of the earliest schools in the Commonwealth. We present with pride this review of the educational accomplishments of our State, and hope that the next one hundred years will witness an even greater program of expansion to meet the needs of our ever-changing democracy.

A REVIEW OF MILLERSVILI.E S FIRST EIGHTY YEARS
By Harold Zarfoss
LANCASTER County Normal School, established in the Spring of 1854, was the first Normal School in Pennsylvania to he recognized by I he state. After a thorough inspection by the State Superintendent of Schools and other outstanding notables in the field of education it was officially recognized as a State Normal School, December 2. 1859.
“This Institution is emphatically tho outgrowth of the present increased interest in education, especially in education by common schools.
During the Summer of 1854, a number of the citizens of Millersville, and its vicinity, desiring a more liberal education for their children than that furnished by the common schools of the neighborhood, erected a building for the purpose of establishing a school which they proposed to denominate the Millersville Academy.
In the Spring of 1855, learning that the County Superintendent desired a suitable building in which to hold, for the space of three months, a Teachers’ Institute, the Trusteesoffcred their buildings gratuitous-

ly, for the purpose, promising to supply any want of hoarding accommodations by private hospitality.
“The Institute opened on April 17, and, during the term there was an attendance of 135 regular Students. The results were of a satisfactory nature and pointed so clearly to a want of permanent institutions of like character, that the Trustees resolved to treble the size of their buildings and establish a regular Normal School.
“By the 5th of November the new buildings were ready for the reception of students. The experiment was successful and the number of students proved that the projectors of the school had not miscalculated its necessity.
“During the term, the number of students increased to over two hundred; nearly all of whom either are teachers or arc preparing to teach.
“It is admitted, among educational men, that Normal Schools arc necessary to perfect our system of education. A high standard of qualifications may he adopted by county Superintendents, hut without some source from which to obtain better teachers it involves the disagreeable necessity of causing many schools to remain untaught. The peculiar object of the Lancaster County Normal School is to offer the opportunity of careful training in teaching, and, thereby, elevate that profession and furnish common schools with well-qualified teachers. Its interest and those of common schools arc closely connected, ami, we hope to send forth teachers, who in honoring us, will

render important aid in advancing the great cause of popular education."
The above is quoted from the first catalogue and circular of the Lancaster County Normal School, giving the precise reasons for its existence and way in which it was made possible through the good will and foresight of the citizens of Millcrsville. These people sow the possibilities; they were aware of the fact that a Training School for Teachers was necessary as a part of the progressive ideals for mass cduca-lion. To the present citizens of Millers villc and their forefathers belongs the credit of establishing and maintaining what now is one of the outstanding State Teachers Colleges in Pennsylvania.
Very little has been published concerning the history of the school, hut information can he gleaned from the old catalogues dating from the beginning of the school in 1854 to the present. These catalogues, it is interesting to note, are buried in the college vault for safe keeping and are as sacred to the authorities of the school us would he the original copy of the Declaration of Independence.
In the first catalogue, published in 1855, is printed the Valedictory Address given by D. G. Tres-sler at the first Normal School Commencement. Here we learn something new under the sun. 'I'lie length of the address prohibits its reproduction “in to-to" hut the first two paragraphs give an idea of its character: “Ladies and Gentlemen, Fellow Teachers: “It is with great diffidence that 1 appear before you under the present circumstances. My

selection for the honorable task you have imposed upon me, was as unexpected as it is undeserved. Many of my fellow-students and co-lahorers have both more experience and ability; and it is with sincere regret, on my part, that one of these was not chosen. Nevertheless, as your partiality has conferred the honor upon me, I will endeavor to say a few words in accordance with your wishes. First, however, accept my hearty thanks for the unmerited kindness.
“In the discharge of the duty which I have been appointed, 1 find myself without precedent. and compelled to strike out an independent course. I have been present at College Commencements and listened to College Valedictories; I have heard of such things as High School and Academy Valedictories; hut Normal School Valedictory is, “a new thing under the sun" in the State of Pennsylvania. The very name, “Normal School," is yet strange to our cars. It sounds like an exotic word, and so it is. Hut exotics may he naturalized, and so shall this word he and the things which it represents. The schoolboy looks puzzled now at the mere mention of it; the sober citizen asks inquiringly, “What docs it mean?” The school director listens silently and mutters, “Another new thing, I suppose?" The masses are pronouncing it over and over again to sec how it sounds; hut soon it will he the watchword, thrilling the ranks of the noble army of educationalists, echoing along all the branches of the common schools, and floating in broad letters upon the banner under which we

March. Pennsylvania perhaps has not the honor of being the first State to conceive it: hut the good old Dutch County of the State which has given a demonstration of its practicability and utility. The little village of Millcrsvillc has the proud honor of being a pioneer and a prime leader in the Normal School movement in this State.”
The reader may wonder how much the students were charged to attend this Normal School during its early existence. The school year was divided into two cfpial sessions, the first session beginning on the first Monday in April and continuing for twenty-two weeks, the second session beginning on the second Monday in October, and also continuing for twenty-two weeks. The students had three weeks of Spring vacation und five weeks vacation in the Fall. The charge for tuition in the common or higher Knglish branches was $7.50 for a quarter of eleven weeks.Studentswereeompelled to pay for all extras, such as language, music, etc. laitin, Greek, German and French cost $2.50 each. A course in oil painting was given at $6.00 extra: drawing ami penmanship $3.00; music lessons on the piano $8.00; use of the instrument,$.00. Hoard was $2.00 a week. Light and washing. $.25.
How many students today would approve of this required Classical Course as copied from the 1858 catalogue?

From an 1863 64 catalogue: “Millersvillc is a pleasant, rural village, situated three miles from Lancaster city. A fine turnpike road connects the two places, and omnibuses leaving Reese's Motel, near the Railroad Depot, connect with the principal trains. The fare from Lancaster to the school is fifteen cents.”
And concerning the government of the school there is hut one rule, viz:— Do Right.
The reason upon which is founded the particular regulations which it has been thought necessary to adopt may he found upon making an application of the two following principles: First, No student should he allowed to trespass upon the rights or privileges of another. Second, Privileges that all cannot enjoy should he granted to none. Several of the student regulations im-

posed during the Civil War and continued until quite recently were:
1. Kach student is recommended to provide himself with slippers, that in passing up and down the stairways or through the halls, he can walk quietly. No one must indulge in loud talking, whistling or other unnecessary noise in the buildings.
2. The use of tobacco in any form is strictly prohibited in the buildings or about the grounds.
3. The students shall repair to their riMuns at the ringing of the hell for evening study and not leave them without the permission of the teacher in charge; and, in twenty minutes, from the ringing of the retiring hell, all lights must he extinguished, and all noise cease.
4. Students are allowed to walk for exercise in the vicinity of the school, hut no one, otherwise, will absent himself, without permission from the Principal.
5. It is expected that the ladies and gentlemen of the In-st it lit ion will treat one another with politeness, hut no conversation between the sexes must take place in the I-ecture Room, in the Recreation Rooms, or in the Halls. At the close of the evening lectures or society meeting, all will repair immediately to their respective rooms. Neither sex will he expected to trespass upon that portion of the building assigned to the other.
6. No lady or gentleman attending this Institution, will walk or ride with a person of the opposite sex, except in case of necessity; and, then, only with

the permission of the Principal. No per mission will be given for parties or excursions composed of the two 6cxcs.
“The Male and Female departments are entirely separate, and will be judiciously controlled. Both sexes, however, meet in lectures ami in recitations; and we think the presence of each has a beneficial effect upon the other.
From the catalogue 1865-66, concerning state appropriations to students and graduates.
“By a recent Act of the Legislature, the following appropriations are made by the State to Normal Students and Graduates:
1. Each student over seventeen years of age, who shall sign a paper declaring his intent ion to teach in the Common Schools of the Slate, shall receive the sum of Fifty cents per week toward defraying the expenses of tuition and boarding.
2. Each student over seventeen years of age. who was disabled in the naval or military service of the L'nitcd States or of Pennsylvania or whose father lost his life in said service, and who shall sign an agreement us above, shall receive the sum of one dollar per week.
3. Each student who upon graduating shall sign an agreement to teach in the Common Schools of the State two full years, shall receive the sum of Fifty Dollars.
4. Any Student to secure these benefits must attend the school at least onn term of twelve consecutive weeks. These benefits arc to be deducted from the regular expenses of board and tuition."
The Normal School continued to

flourish and each year found the enrollment becoming lurgcr. Today the enrollment is approximately 600 students. With the steady increase in enrollment year after year came the necessity for larger quarters. A building program was started and each decade something new was added. The courses and methods of instruction were constantly changed to meet the demand.
The continued strides of the school were due not a little to the combined efforts of the seven men who headed and head the Institution. Dr. James P.
Wickersham was the first Principal of Millersvillc State Normal School and remained at the head until 1866. when he resigned to become the State Superintendent of Schools. He was succeeded by Dr. Edward Brooks, who served as Principal for a period of seventeen years, until 1883. Professor B. F. Shaub was then elected and remained for a period of four years. Dr. E. Orem Lytc served as Principal from 1887 until 1912. a period of twenty-five years. Dr. P. M. Harhold, now head of the Department of Education at Franklin and Marshall College, served as the school head until 1918. Dr. C. II. Gordinier was Principal from then until 1929, when Dr. Landis Tanger, former Superintendent of Reading Schools was elected as President.
Much credit must be assigned these men. some of whom gave the best years of their lives to see Millersvillc advance i nd take its place among the best colleges.

T M E TO I C H S TO E
By Lester Sloth ower
ON a sunny clay, early in Sep temher of the year 1930, we received our true introduction to Millersville State Teachers College. Along with us came the inauguration of several new activities and ideas. This was the year that the Department of Industrial Arts, under the directorship of Mr. E. E. Howard, was established: the t wo-ycar classes were abolished, and our class was made the first to he composed entirely of four-year students; Freshmen Rules were brought into force, and we were decorated with green hair ribbons, ‘dinks’, black ties, black shoes, conspicuous badges and —oh — many other things.
Our first step as a unit was to organize under the leadership of Miss Hammond and I)r. Chandler. Lester Slothower was elected President; Bernard Grayhill, Vice president; Dorothy Yohn, Secretary; David McVcy, Treasurer. The class decided they did not care to work under a regular constitution hut preferred a more plastic form of government. The following year, Miss Hammond retired from school service, and Miss Simerson took the position of adviser. The officers for this year were: President, Bernard Grayhill; Vice-President, Luke Smelt .; Secretary, Betty Scott; Treasurer, Harold Rolin. At the cm! of the first semester the President resigned, and Kathryn Buckwaltcr was elected President for the following semester.
Beatrice Griuinger New Cumberland, I'a.
During the first three years we were somewhat socially minded. Our first affair was a card party in the Training School — then a Costume Dance — another party -a Barn Dance—a scries of parlies-a picnic—more dances —another party—and, finally, the Senior Ball.
While we were Juniors, the class officers were; President, John Shcnk; Vice-president, William Wilkinson; Secretary, Grace Spencer; Treasurer. Wanda Kalcncki. During this year, we elected our Touchstone Editor and Business Manager, who gained much knowledge by working with the 1933 Touchstone Staff.
For our Senior year. Miss Galon took the place of Miss Simerson as class adviser. The officers for this year were; President, Willmr Landis; Vice-president, Robert Luccy; Secretary, Wanda Kalcncki; Treasurer, Martha Dietz.
The presentation of our class play.
The Thirteenth Chair. met with remarkable success, a success which we owe to the capable direction of Miss Lcnhardt.
Such, briefly, have been the college experiences of a class which has done its best to add something, no matter how slight, to the character and reputation of M illcrsville.
We feel that our leave-taking will he a sad one, hut we have high hopes for the success that should come as a result of our four years of careful instruction in the school which early gained and shall always hold our respect and love.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
EVERYONE know Ihr traditional frc hinan, the shy, quiet novice at college, hut no one could have recognized this typical tudcnt on the Millers-ville campus in September of 1931. The first notice given the present Junior class in the Snapper road a follow :
“Credit must he given to Miss Haver-stick and Mr. Ling-enfelter. They have been very patient in bringing the yearling down to earth.” A Junior we enthusiastically admit the patience of our deans and as enthusiastically deny having been brought down to earth. Of course, our too ex-huherant spirits have been sobered, hut we still are definitely in the clouds of achievement. That we are different is not an idle hoant. We glory in superlatives.
Numbered in our class are the worst and the best in all lines of college endeavor, ami we prove that we are different by being proud of both. Let us consider some examples. Do we not have some of the most beautiful girls in the school registered as Juniors? Furthermore, some of the most fog-bound males in the world are members of our class. We are, one and all. dedicated to the task of surprising our teachers. For example, we practically flunk one course under Mr. McComsey and the next semester lose weight in studving for an A.
All this is really idle gossip, but we want you to get the general idea. Don’t try to classify us. You can’t win!
Ira Hall Ulilx. I’a.
Our social affairs have not always been exactly dignified — remember the Bowery Party? but they have been varied. We gave a silly Kitties Party, a gav Winter Carnival, and an ultrasmart Christmas Dance. About our p r o m we arc as curious as you.
In every club, in the literary societies, on the Snapper staff, on the football team, are active Juniors.
There arc also (must we mention them?) Juniors who are the despair of both faculty and classmates. As for scholastic achievement, we refer you with smugness to our teachers.
Many of our friends are to he graduated, and we sincerely regret seeing them leave. If we were the sort to be led we would deem the senior footprints worthy to be followed. However, since we arc originals, watch us blaze a new path as seniors!
SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
WE, a sophomores like to think that wc have attempted in our two years at Millersville to do those things which would help to raise the already high standards of the College. As we continue our course, wc hope to make our college life of such a nature that in future years we may look hack upon it with an approving eve.
With the assistance of Miss Powell and Dr. Stine, our class advisers, and under the leadership of presidents Anton Hess and Clyde Ramsey, we have completed two successful years. The interests of our class are varied, and we
Twenty-eightI : i
I II K T O I c: II S I O N K
have been represented in all types of college activity.
As a social force, tin sophomores can not be overlooked. The major dances we have sponsored, the Sports partv, and the Hollywood party, all met with great success.
Some of our members have distinguished themselves in athletics, inter-school and interclass. For two years the girls have claimed the intcrclass hockey championship, while boys and girls have held their own in basketball. Tennis and archery, too, have been great fuvor-ites with the girls.
We have taken part in all of the extracurricular activities of the College. Debating has become the major interest of several of our number, and many of the actors in the Citamurd plays are sophomores. Many of our class members, too, have become deeply interested in the work of the various clubs.
One of the aims of our class has been to uphold the scholastic record of the College. We feel that, to some extent, our past attempts in this direction have been successful hut wc hope that we may attuin higher levels in the future.
Our efforts have always been directed toward the furthering of the program of our College and it is our aim in the future to do everything in our power to add to our own success anil to that of the school whose welfare so deeply concerns us.
FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
WK, the class of '37 entered the portals of Millersvillc on September 11, 1933 with high hopes and ambitions for becoming successful teachers.Class meetings were held at which the following oflicers were elected: Raymond Shinglcr, president; Stanley Ccih, vice-president; Dorothea Foose, secretary; Marie Carr, Assistant secretary: Robert McComscy. historian.
The Vigilance Committee welcomed us with open arms. Hv the cud of two weeks, girls were seen with green hair ribbons and cotton stockings, boys were lipping dinks and wearing black or white stockings. During every noon hour the upper classmen could be sure of entertainment at our expense. Girls wearing odd stockings and carrying scrub brushes and buckets, brooms, pillows, and alarm clocks, could be seen walking around the campus. The tisli were disturbed by the steady plunge of men falling into tin lake. Each football game was announced by the appearance on our hacks of signs with the merits of the Millersvillc team well advertised.
Shoff entertained with a fancy jig to the tune of an ac-eordion; Art demonstrated thrapprovcd procedure for fishing in a fountain: the hoarding students learned the art of prayer; Arnold and Shirk tried to hide their identity by appearing in dresses and baby caps; the trees on the front campus were honored with the touch of our lips; and the tug of war across the lake gave a few

of u a cold shower. These anil many other delightful activities were brought to a climax by the pajama pnrailc. We all enjoyed this feature to the fullest extent except Geib who nursed for several days a black eye resulting from one of Mattie's wicked right swings.
The “Freshman Snowball” climaxed the social events of our freshman year. Under the supervision of the social committee, every detail was carefully handled. The programs were in the form of snowballs with each dance bearing the name of some polar rccrca lion. The gym was decorated in blue

and white, with silhouettes of reindeer adding to the winter effect. Even the traditional snowman was present. Snow fell throughout the dances, an entirely new occurrence at Millersville. Ogloos housed the faculty and the punch. The compliments received from the guests after the dance assured our class of at least one social success.
We are looking forward now to entering our sophomore year, during which we hope to make as much progress towards the attainment of our goal as we feel that we made during our freshman year.

THE THIRTEENTH CHAIR
By Esther Collins
THE senior class reached into the realm of the mysterious for its dramatic production when it staged The Thirteenth Chair hy Bayard Vciller. A splendid east acting under Miss Esther Lenhart’s direction succeeded in making this play one of the most successful of the season.
The murder of young Edward Wales during a spiritual seance held for thirteen guests at the home of the wealthy Crosby produces a tangled web of mystery which is disentangled, not by the self-confident Sergeant Donahue, hut by the sagacious spiritual medium, Madame La Grange. Frances Unruli in the role of Madame La Grange deserved praise
for her excellent performance, ami although John Shenk's part as Donahue elicited dislike for him, we recognized his dramatic ability more than ever. Frederick Tanger portrayed well the part of the unfortunate Wales, who, as is finally disclosed, is murdered hy Philip Mason, (Leon Dissinger). (The lovers) Esther Musser as Helen O’Neil, ami Ellis Keene as Will Crosby, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Crosby (Luke Smelt , and Kathryn Buekwalter) added a touch of the romantic to the play. The other members of the cast, including Naomi Hess, Betty Longenecker, Florence llulier, Kermit Gulden, Esther Collins, Harold Stinson, John Fox, Melvin Forry, and Willmr Landis, all acquitted themselves well.

PAGE LITERARY SOCIETY
“Rich in Truth" Blue anti Gold Founded December 8, 1855
THE Pape Literary Society has completed its seventy-ninth year as a vital element in the activities of the college. With its background of many years of rich experience, this organization is well suited to minister to our literary needs.
As usual, the first few weeks of the year were devoted to rushing prospective members of the society. On September 30 a reception was held. After a gratifying number of new members had been procured, an attempt was made to maintain their interest by offering interesting programs during the year.
One of the features of the year was an introduction to the N. R. A. Dr. H. M. J. Klein of Franklin and Marshall College gave us an enlightening discourse on the president’s relief plans. Included in
Mary E. Ross Lancaster, Ra.
our programs was a spelling bee, the winners of which were Grace Flick, and Ruth Dissinger. A panel discussion conducted hy several members of the society attracted a great deal of attention. Subjects such as, “Compulsory Chapel. ’ “Use of the Library,” and “Snapping” were debated.
The Page Anniversary, held May 11. was successful as usual. The main speaker for this occasion was T. A. Daly, whose dialect poems in particular arc familiar to everyone.
Aside from its regular programs the society renders many services to Millers-ville. An art contest was conducted and from the work of many participants, that of Hilda Frey, Margaret Herr, and Clyde Herr, was selected for prizes. At the same time, for those who were of a literary turn of mind, a one-act play contest was opened. Orpha Byler, Kathryn Buckwalter, and Anton Hess were winners.
'l'he Page Debating Team enjoyed a successful season, the main and most coveted victory being that over the Normal Debating Team. The Page team consisted of Genevieve Mann, Pauline Lichty, Gordon Longcncckcr, Charles Huhseh. and Henry Markley.
The officers for the year were: First semester. President, Paul Diller: Vice-president, Robert Weber; Secretary. Josephine Darmstaetter; Treasurer, Ella Rohrer; Critic, Harold Zarfoss; Curators. Helen Blaisse, John Diller, and John Shenk. Second Semester.

NORMAL LITERARY SOCIETY
For ecvenlv-scven years Normalites have been upholding their motto. “Fight for truth and right.’"
This year has been unique in the history of the society, in that many innovations have taken place in the monthly programs. Two outstanding speakers were Dr. Boyd Edwards, headmaster of Mcrcersburg Academy, and Dr. Hotchkiss, a missionary to Africa.
Musically, we have developed the
Normal Male Quartet and the Normal Mixed Octet; dramatically, our amateur Thespians have evoked many a laugh. The appearance of “Station N.
L.S." brought forth much favorable comment.

field, officer were elected, rule and regulation act up, music ordered; and cverv Wednesday evening set aside for gathering in the Chapel to sing. Starting slowly, the club worked several number to a concert standard and were at once in such great demand that a wider repertoire was necessary. The high point in the first semester was reached in the Christmas program given by the combined music clubs, in which the Men's Glee Club took a prominent part.
Not willing to do things by halves the club, under Conductor Butterfield's guidance, began planning to enter the state glee club contest in March. Work began in earnest: sectional rehearsals, and club rehearsals were hold with almost wearing frequency. The words, diction; pitch, and tone were drummed into the men until, from a group of inexperienced singers, music began to emerge that was worthy of an expert organization. At this stage in the club’s history they became a member of the Intercollegiate Musical Council and to prove the worth of their training, entered the contest at Temple University and placed third, being outdistanced by two veteran clubs of Penn State ami Temple.
The club remained active and continued to take part in programs of a high order, among which the Spring concert was most outstanding. A brilliant future can be seen in store for this new and active organization if the club displays in the future the enthusiasm which animated it during the year past.
The officers for the first semester are: President. Daniel Scner; Vice-president. Donald M. Huntsinger; Secretary-treasurer, Anton Hess; Librarian, Melvin Forrv. For the second semester: President, Harold Zarfoss; ice-president, Harold liable. Secretary-treasurer, Anton Hess; Librarian, Melvin Forry.

broken by the participation of a brass quartette, the Girl ’ Glee Club, the Men’s Glee Club, and the orchestra, in addition to the Choir. The repertoire had been planned in two part , contrasting in their effects. The brasses sounded the opening notes for the first half of the program in two Barb Chorales. The Girls’ Glee Club sang a group of three numbers including another chorale from Bach and an Alsacian noel. Sloop, Gentle Dove. Selections from the Messiah were chosen hv Miss Hughes and Vernon Arnold for their respective vocal and violin solos. The contribution of the Men's Glee Club consisted of Nevin’s, Let Vs Now Even Vnto Bethlehem.x w ever beautiful Lo, How a Rose E'er IRooming of Prae-torius, and O Come, All Ye Faithful. The climax of the afternoon was reached in the thrilling and artistic rendition of The Shepherd's Story of Clarence Dickinson, sung by the combined Glee clubs with Clarabel Elder, Arthur Tempest and Donald Huntsinger as soloists. The college orchestra played two selections before Dr. Tangcr’s reading of the Christinas story.
The triumphant note changed to one of tranquility as the lights were lowered and the choir entered in a procession, singing and carrying lighted candles. During the next half-hour Mr. Butterfield directed them in an excellent interpretation of his own recently published cantata entitled The Christ Story.
In spite of dreary weather the Chapel held a crowd of over five hundred appreciative listeners who went away impressed by the spirit of the service.
THE COMMUTING WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION
THE Commuting Women’s Association has completed another year of constructive and important work. It has carried out more fully its first and foremost purpose—that of creating a feeling of deeper understanding among the day-student girls and of developing in those girls a loyalty to college activities.
During the past year the association has established a new type of freshman commission composed of ten Junior girls whose duty it has been to help the freshmen girl through her first year of college life. This is only one of the (»er-vices the association has rendered the
This organization has contributed also to the social life of the college by cooperating with the boys’ day-student association in the arrangement of several attractive dances.
The Commuting Women's Association
is yet in its infancy but it is growing stronger each year; and wc feel that it will always hold the same place of importance in college life that it holds today.
MEN’S DAY-STUDENT ASSOCIATION
The first meeting of the Men's Day Student Association was held September 20, 1933. when the following officers were elected: John Shenk, president; Paul Dillcr, vice-president; George
Fifty-twoI 9 :i 1
T H K T O
Broske, secretary; ami Stanley Charles, treasurer.
The many accomplishment in the short time of the organization's existence prove that little time was wasted in getting to work. Up to this time, the Day Students have sponsored a Day Student Party, held on November 17 and a hoxing show, held in the gymnasium.
Not only have the Men Day Students sponsored social events, hut they have made great strides toward improving the Day Room. The room has been completely metamorphosed! The improvements include higger tables, a better lighting system, a pencil sharpener, waste icecptacles, comfortable deckchairs, and a radio. These new conveniences were properly initiated at the “Smoker" held at noon on March 7. Coffee, cigarettes, radio music, and speeches l»y the faculty were provided for the students enjoyment.
On March 16, 193-1, the day students and their friends danced to the tunes of Jimmy Fackler’s Nevonians in the College Gym. Decorations should have pleased the Irish, for they were in keeping with St. Patrick’s Day.
If the activities for this first year can he used as a criterion for coming years the Men’s Day Student Association should have a very successful career in front of it.
WOMEN’S COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
The Women's Community Association, organized in 1923. has made great progress during the brief period of its existence. The association has two governing bodies. Welfare and Kfpiity, which arc composed of faculty advisers and representatives of the student body.
Welfare Department: Esther Collins, president; Ruth Fox, vice-president; Alice Raub, secretary; Esther Withers, treasurer. Senior Representatives: Mar-oric Calkins, Beatrice Grissingcr, Ella Rohrer, Frances Sipc. Junior Rcprescn-
tatives: Sabina Bard, Elinor Willits, Editor Wood. Sophomore Representatives: Esther Bear, Ruth Thcophel. Freshman Representative: Elizabeth Meyers.
Equity Department: Esther Collins, president; Ruth Fox, vice-president; Alice Raub, secretary. Representatives: Frances Un-ruh, Margaret Smith, Dorothy Moyer. Advisers:
Miss Conard, Miss Terry, Miss Caton.
Besides conducting student affairs in an efficient and systematic manner, the organization has improved the social life of the students.
Teas arc held every two weeks and recently a radio has been installed in the Lobby.
The Association hopes to continue its work in the future and to add as much as possible to the happiness not only of the dormitory girls but of the entire student body.

The Student Council, now known ns the Men’s Community Association, was first organized in February. 1930, the first semester of the school year and served for 1930-1931.
Realizing the great need for student participation and self-government, the students this year decided to re-organize. The result was the establishment of a new organization, known as the Men’s Community Association. It is to he hoped that the Association will prove to he permanent in nature and will serve as an active and vital part of the college life.
The officers elected have been as follows: First semester 1933: President,

Lester Slothower; Vice-president, Grove Sollcnbcrger and Harold Stinson: Secretary, John Fox, Treasurer, Lennard Dodd. Second semester: President, Luke Smoltz; Vice-president, William Otstot and Jones Irvin: Secretary Klvin Troutman; Treasurer, Clarence Kenoll.
The Commission system at Millers-ville, entirely original here, was worked out about ten years ago. A discussion of the system was Millersvillc's contribution to the meeting of the Eastern States Association of Professional Schools for Teachers, held in New York City in 1929.
By experience the system has become more unified and efficient. There are a minimum of ten commission girls, formerly chosen from all of theupper classes but beginning with the term 1933-34, the commission was made a Junior project.
The purpose of the commissioners is to acquaint the now-girls with their surroundings, introduce them to the life of the college, and help and guide them throughout the year.
'I’lie commissioners for 1933-34 are: Chairman. Dorothy Moyer, Lucille Hall. Beulah Ilereeran, Elizabeth Hosier. Margaret Howat, Ethel Lvtlc, Alice Rauh, Gail Tobert, Elinor Willits, Esther Withers, Edith Wood.

Y. W. C. A.
From the first day of school in the fall to the last day of school in the ?pring, yea even in the summer months, the “Y” girls are striving to serve the students and faculty of Millersville.
A jolly treasure hunt around campus opened the year's events. This was closely followed by a doggie roast nnd a get-together-welcome party for the Freshman Class. At the close of the drive for new members, the annual banquet was held in the Dining Room Annex.
A few weeks before Christmas the annual bazaar in the “Y" room helped to solve gift problems. A Christmas play. “The Least of These,” was given for the student body on the Wednesday before vacation. As usual a group of carollcrs. including any students who desired to accompany the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. cabinets, sang through the village.
The two Christian Associations entertained the mothers on Saturday of Mothers’ Week End hv giving the play “Only 38” in the College Chapel. As in former years breakfast was served in the girls' rooms on Sunday morning. On the traditional Violet Day the girls picked choice bouquets and took them to the hospitals in Lancaster. Vesper services were carried on with spirit this year, the Y. W. C. A. being responsible every other Sunday.
Several innovations this year have proved successful. Among them arc the selling of stamps and postal cards in the dormitory, the placing of blue candles in clear glass candle sticks on the dining hall tables for Sunday supper, and the rotation of the Wednesday meetings after this fashion: Music, Bible study, World fellowship, and Social, in addition to the regular devotional service.

I he Rural Club was started in 1923 and since then has grown to he the largest club on the campus. One of the most important things the club has done is to conduct an annual rural school conference. Besides this, thu Rural Club has bought for the rural training school a piano, radio, victrola, film projector, and a library including book-case and one hundred books. For the county rural schools the club has furnished circulating box-libraries and during the past two years has conducted a rural school library survey. Among the many activities of the club this year were the Rural School Library Survey; the Rural Conference, ut which the guest speaker was Dr. Brunner of Columbia University; the annual outing along the Susquehanna; a doggie roast; tag day; food sales; a garden project; a Christmas party; and the sending of delegates to the National Conference at Blacksburg. Virginia.

In May 1933 the club sponsored a eonfcrencc in honor of the tenth anniversary of the graduation of the first Library Science class. Many alumnae were present as well as librarians in the district. The morning session consisted of speeches by Miss Ethel M. Feaglev. Library Consultant of Teachers College. Columbia University; Miss Alice R. Brooks. Librarian of Drexcl Institute; Miss Meta Schmidt. Librarian of Over-brook High School: and Miss Susanna Young, Extension Librarian of Pennsylvania State Library. A luncheon followed the session, at which Miss Esther Risscr, a member of the first library science graduating class, acted as toast mi stress.
This year the club has not undertaken any large projects. It has, however, enjoyed several interesting meetings, one of which was the magazine meeting. Each girl came representing a particular magazine and the members guessed who she was. Another one consisted of a lecture on printing by Mr. Oshuru of the Industrial Arts Department. At one meeting Miss Howard, Librarian in the Training School, gave the group a talk on new hooks for children. The club has supplied the library with flowers, through a fund raised from food sales.

sisting of a formal program, which included topics of interest to English teachers followed by discussions. By providing an opportunity for the discussion of the many problems which cannot be discussed in classes, the English club meets a very definite need at Millersvillc. Some of the purposes of the organization are: 1. To solve problems of active student teachers. 2. To propose better teaching methods. 3. To make clear all grammatical difficulties met with hy any member of the club. 4. To cause English Majors to he conscious of a common
bond in their work in college and in the field of English after graduation. 5. To impress upon all members the important of reading contemporary contributions to the English field. 6. To acquaint members with material that will he of current value.

The Travel Club was organized in 1930 by Miss Wiekey. It is sponsored for the purpose of stinlying the various countries and their special points of interest. The club also aims to bring outside speakers who have visited various countries.
Since we can't all travel extensively, and many of us don't appreciate the historic and significant point of interest which arc easily accessible, we aim to take as many short trips as possible.
Since the organization the Travel Club has journeyed to Valley Forge. Gettysburg. Indian Echo Cave. Harris- Fredrick E. Tanker

THE Snapper, as we know it today, originated three years ago, when, under the editorship of Everett Wilson, it was changed from a monthly literary magazine to a weekly newspaper. Under the two succeeding editors, Cloyd Criswell ’33, and Frances Unruh ’34. the paper has continued to advance in excellency and importance, until today it occupies a pre-eminent place in college activities.
Ability in English composition i“ made the basis for election to the Staff. At the weekly meetings of the Staff the policies for forthcoming issues are discussed. After this Miss Marion Spencer, faculty adviser, conducts a class in methods for high school publications.
The recording of college activities is the first service rendered by the Snapper. In addition to this there is an editorial section which serves as a medium of expression for both faculty and students. as well as a means for reflecting modern educational questions. The theatre column and the column of the “Rambling Philosopher" are the other literary features of the paper.

THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE
TIE Vigilance Committee, the governing body controlling the Freshman boy , started to function four year ago and since then has remodelled itself in many respects. The duty of the committee is to help the incoming freshman adjust themselves to their new environment and to see that they obey for a certain time rules which arc imposed upon them to help them become acquainted with the upper classmen and faculty.
When a freshman steps over bis bounds, the committee has the power to punish him. There arc certain things incoming hoys must learn to do ami certain things they must learn not to do. Some arc timid when away from home; some are too aggressive; and both conditions need to he corrected. Many embarrassing situations arise, hut, all things considered, most of the men enjoy freshman rules. It is all in the make-up of college life and who doesn't expect a little ha .ing?
The Committee this year was entirely different from those of other years. Heretofore, it was composed only of sophomores, hut this year it was composed of men from each of the upper classes, the chairman being a senior. All meetings were held privately and followed court-procedure, with the chairman as the presiding judge. Since the committee wished especially to avoid antagonizing any of the students, decisions were made very carefully.
There is no part of one's college life that stands out more distinctly in later years than one’s freshman year. For this reason, we feel that freshman dnys should he pleasant ones. May all the Vigilance Conunittccs-to-comc try to make life pleasant and entertaining for the incoming “grecnies!”
FOOTBALL REVIEW OF 1933
TIE appointment of John Pucillo as Head Coach of Athletics met with the approval of the entire student body. The candidates, too. showed their appreciation by turning out early for practice. The initial call for candidates netted the new maestro twenty-eight pigskin minded applicants.
(’liable to cope with the many duties thrust upon him so suddenly. Coach Pucillo appointed as his assistants Earl Reist ami Leon Dis-singer, both of whom were ineligible to play because of the four-year rul-ing. Heist took charge of the hack-field and developed several combination which took the oval pellet across the goal line in every game but the last one. Dissinger took charge of the ends and made a valuable discovery in Michael Kufta. Coach Pucillo supervised these divisions and also took charge of the line. He produced a line which will live forever in Millersvillc history, remaining an unbreakable harrier in each of the six games.

High star, reported, as did Gcrlitski. Shinplcr, Shorb, McCaslin, Ditzlcr, Zepp, Tempest, Updegrovc, Gantts. Brackhiil, Wciklc, and Miller. Ml of these new men proved invaluable, as their services were demanded through out the season. The veterans who reported were Captain Stinson, Hastings. Trout, Broscy, Robinson, Charles, Tan-ger. Smelt , Rother-mal, Devlin. Jacobs, Noble, Kufta, Dodd, Kelly, ami liable. These warriors, many of whom have won fame in former years, served as a nucleus around which Coach Pueillo built a winning aggregation. Coming out with high score in four out of six games, these men gave Millersvillc the best team that the present student body has ever seen. They were scored against only in two games, once in the Lock Haven feud and three times in the West Chester contest. The 1933 season was one of the most successful seasons in football for years.

WE BLOOM OVER BLOOMSBURG!
In this game Millersvillc planted the seed that was to bloom later into four beautiful bouquets, each with a radiance so dazzling that the two withered stems which lay in their midst were unnoticed and forgotten. Kufta, a new discovery from the coal regions, figured in practically every play in this game. He thrilled the fans time and again with his spectacular tackles. The Millers-ville touchdown came near the end of the game when Stinson brought the hall to within one yard of the line. On the next play Robinson took the hall over
by employing an end run. It was the only score of the game, but Millersvillc threatened to score several times and proved to all and sundry that she had a ball club worthy of note.
LOSE TO LOCK HAVEN!
The score column showed Millers-ville 0, Lock Haven 6, but it takes more than that to tell the talc of this meeting. The visitors scored late in the third period when the local Snappers were pretty well spent. Good reserve material might have saved the day. but alibis cannot discredit the one touchdown on Lock Haven, for they deserved it. Millersvillc tried hard, even the last few minutes of play and gave hope to the local faithful that the Black and Gold toters might yet win or tic the score; but this was not to be! The referee ? whistle chilled all such aspirations. It was a good game and left little doubt in the minds of our loyal rooters that, had this been played later in the season. Millersvillc would have emerged the victors.

|iiartcr the Black anil Golil uniform became a frequent visitor at the goalposts. Coach Pncillo used many substitutes, all of whom gave a creditable account. Shingler got off early for a touchdown, followed by Yingcr, who ran 45 yards for a six-pointer. It was our second victory of the season and acted as a tonic on the student body.
KUTZTOWN K RUM BLED!
At this Dutch institution Millersville is considered a serious rival. Our past success on the gridiron ran the mercury high on this thermometer! Pucillo had his charges in condition and primed for the battle, which turned out to he little short of a massacre. Millersville had no trouble in accounting for its three touchdowns thru the sparsely settled hackfield of the opposing team. Kutztown fumbled often and at critical times. Each of the Millersville hackfield men carried the hall at some time or other, and each came through with gains which earned the commendation of Coach Pucillo. Many substitutes were used, some of them playing as much as three-quarters of the game. The final score was 18-0.
ALUMNI SEE SHIPPENSBURG SINK
Hundreds of alumni braved the November colds to sec and thrill to victory over Shippenshurg by a score of 12-0. At the opening kick-off Shingler ran the pellet hack to the 20-yard line where for the next ten minutes a battle of punting took place with neither team gaining any profitable advantage. It was a very cold day and many fumbles were made from which Millersville manufactured touchdowns. The passing was better than it had ever been before, especially the Shingler-to-Stinson combination which worked for several long gains. Shippenshurg was completely baffled and stood in awe of the renovated Millersville team. The Titanic sank in clear water!
WEST CHESTER W INS
Millersville closed a most successful football season at West Chester, although «hc dropped a 19 to 0 verdict to her traditional rivals. The Snappers were outnumbered and outweighed and had little chance of coping with the mighty Wescott-co ached outfit, who were playing strong teams all seasons and meeting with a large degree of success. Our hoys fought hard to the last minute even though they knew they had little chance of coming out victorious.
Basketball is considered the greatest
of indoor sports at Millersville. This interest may he accounted for hv the fact that Millersville for the past eight years has been able to produce teams that play a superior game. This year the basketball team, by winning ten out of thirteen games, continued the past high standard of play.
At the beginning of the season. Mil-lersvillc boasted of some good reserve material. Injuries, however, forced out of play two of the most promising players — Bishop with a broken finger, and Yingcr with a bruised shoulder incurred in football.
The coaches, as a result, were forced to rely on the five regular varsity men who had played together for the past three years. Three of these varsity men (Captain Fox. Stinson, and Bender)
will graduate, leaving a large assignment to he filled next year.
The men who carried the brunt of the play were all veterans with training and

experience. They knew the habits of each other and worked so well as a unit that their play inspired the reporter of the Bloomshurg daily paper to comment as follows: “A hunch of athletes from Millersvillc Teachers College who looked like greased lightning on a basketball court, dropped in to town long enough to defeat the Bloomshurg Huskies by the score of 45 to 41. They outpassed the Huskies, one of the very few times Bloomshurg has been out-passed this year. Their passing game was so fast, their shooting so accurate that they dominated the play for the remainder of the half." The type of play taught by the coaches was a combination fast break mixed with a slow one.
It was most successful in penetrating the opponents' defenses.
The school officials, the faculty, and student body hope that the same type of basketball may be continued at Millersvillc. This can be done only with the strongest type of co-operation on the part of the Alumni. We, need new prospects every year, if Millersvillc is to continue or surpass her present achievements.

BASEBALL, REVIEW OF 1933 SEASON
Even as early as the spring of 1933 a new feeling in sports was created at M. S. T. C. The first product of this new feeling was Millersvillc's greatest baseball team. The team was organized on the spur of the moment, when several baseball-minded athletes approached the Director of Physical Education. John Pucillo, and asked him whether or not he would assume responsibilities as coach. The genial Pucillo, noticing the extraordinary interest and willingness of the boys, readily consented to act as their guide. 11c told them, however, that uniforms and equipment would not be supplied by the school.
From a wealth of material that included many veteran players from the well-organized Lancaster County league, and incidcntly, the cream of its pitching staff, as well as many enthusiastic players who have not had the opportunity to display their wares, the new Coach selected a team that made baseball history at Millersville. They won all three games of their schedule, which was short because of a late start in the season.
This year a bigger and better baseball season is anticipated, if such a thing is possible. New uniforms and equipment are furnished by the school and a new diamond is being made in the rear of the Elementary school building, our back Campus being too small a field for the Great American pastime. A larger schedule is being made and the Touchstone Staff regrets that they will be unable to record the results in this year's book, since these pages go to press long before the season is over.
Last vear's results are as follows:

consequently the beginning of a new major sport at M. S. T. C. With Devlin twirling sensational hall and the hats of Trout, Hershey, Brubaker, and Styer resounding with well-placed hits, our hoys were able to turn in a creditable 4 to 1 win. “This game,’ as Pucillo later said, “convinced me that Millcrsville could and would have a great baseball team.”
The complete schedule follows:

MILLERSVILLE WINS OVER WEST CHESTER
A favorable headline if there ever was one! Not only did Millcrsville heat West Chester by a score of 9 to 5, hut we also collected interest on that football score last year. Devlin again pitched a brilliant game, and succeeded in striking out 10 opposing batsmen. This was our greatest win! in any season!
KUTZTOWN OUR THIRD VICTIM
This third and last game was a beautiful exhibition of baseball. Not until the ninth inning did Millcrsville succeed in scoring the winning run when Sollen-herger singled to left field to score Kelly. The score was Millcrsville 3. Kut .town 2. Thus ended a short but successful season. The following men won their letters in baseball: Brum, bach, Robinson. Styer, Palmer, Trout. Brubaker, Sollenberger, Hershey, Devlin, Rothcrmai. Kelly and McVcy.
The tennis team this year has been more active than for some time past. Since tbc weather was unfavorable to a great deal of practice, the men played under a great disadvantage in the opening matches. The team this year was chosen on the basis of the rankings of the 1933 all tourney and includes: Vernon Arnold, Elwood Caulcr, Earl Heck-endorn, Donald Horst, Ellis Keene, Garner Klair, and Samuel Newkirk. Prof. Frederick Bechmycr again served as faculty adviser and coach.
“The one ice love the whole year
The one who is willing and able to do. She shall be Queen of the May."
With this poem as its guide, the stu-dent body this year elected Naomi Hess the Queen to grace the throne at the Spring Festival. Proceeding from the lake, accompanied by a group of attendants composed of the former Queens of the May, the Maids of Honor, and the Court of Honor, the Queen came to the throne. Because she most nearly represents the qualities which characterize our ideal young womanhood — grace, beauty, poise, courtesy, modesty, courage, strength, gaiety, precision, self control, humor, and sportsmanship. Various groups portrayed these qualities in song and dance in her honor. The climax was reached when the Queen w’as

SENIOR BALL, 1934
The Senior Ball of the graduating class of 1934 took place in the College Dining Room on Friday, May 25. Dan Gregory and his twelve piece orchestra from Harrisburg furnished the music. The Dining Room was transformed to represent a Night Club and the class owes thanks to Miss Salomon, who, like a clever magician, plotted the transformation. The novelty of the setting, the charm of the music, the enthusiasm of both Seniors and guests, combined to make the last social function of the Class of '34 one of its most successful.
Mr. Wilbur Landis, president of the class of 1934, opened the Class Day exercises on Monday, May 28, with an address of welcome. “The Bridal Chorus,” “To Thee Oh Country,” and “Come to the Fair,” sung by a Senior chorus, added to the spirit of lightness and welcome. Through the eyes of Betty Longeneckcr the group watched the progress of four years of this renowned class. A dance hv several Senior girls prefaced Rostand's play, "The Romancers” the cast of which included Florence Huber as Sylvette. Ellis Keene as her lover Pcrcinet, and Leon Dissinger as Bcrgamin, the father of Pcrcinet. Supporting these were Melvin Forry, Basquinot, and John Shenk, Straforcl. The denouncement of the Class Day program was sounded in the singing of the Class song, written by Edvthc Morris. The students and their guests then adjourned to the terrace to drink punch and to dance.
