Yet every yearbook staff undertakes the job of doing that very thing. The following pages are the result of the effort put forth by the 1937 TOUCHSTONE staff to give permanent form to the color and movement of a year at Millersville. However, as is often the case, events of greatest importance may defy classification. The history of Millersville for the year 1936-37 includes at least one event which may be termed "of greatest importance." A program of building improvement was inaugurated during the second semester. This work had been under way only a short time when the state department announced that appropriations for three new buildings had been approved by the proper authorities. The architects were appointed, and the problem of locating the buildings was worked out. Thanks to this action, a modern gym, a much-needed education building, and a new power plant will be erected on our campus in the near future. Thus the year 1936-37 has seen the making of real Millersville history and the beginning of the crystallization of vague hope into tangible actuality. JUNIOR CLASS SECONDARY GROUPJUNIOR CLASS ELEMENTARY GROUP When a class has furnished many of the campus organizations with capable leaders, and through not only its school spirit and elaborate social affairs but also through its intellectual pursuits has commanded attention as it progressed through three years, is it not justified in being proud of its organization? The class of 1938 looks with satisfaction upon its accomplishments and has high ambitions for a glorious senior year. OFFICERS: President: Williom H. Bolger Secretory: Jane B.

The class has directed its attention to many fields of activity during the year. It has loaned its talent to numerous dramatic, literary, and artistic organizations. It has contributed a number of stellar athletes to the several teams, and. above all, the class of 39 has maintained a fine interest in scholarship. OFFICERS: President: Mark R.

Frederick Beckmyer FRESHMAN CLASS ELEMENTARY GROUP ELEMENTARY GROUPFRESHMAN CLASS INDUSTRIAL ARTS GROUP September found the campus littered with an unusually large group of boys sporting gold dinks and girls wearing green head-bands. Within a few weeks these marks of "freshmanship" had disappeared, many new acquaintances were made, and new friendships were rooted. The historical Butchers' Broadcast gave the newcomers a chance to exhibit their talents. The former wearers of the gold and green have already gone far towards proving their worth in recitation hall, on the athletic field, and in the social life of Millersville.

Campus clubs and other organizations are to be congratulated on the varied and interesting broadcasts they provided from both stations. Student announcers carried on in the best Milton J. Cross manner. Thanks to Dr. Tanger, Mr. S. P. McComsey, and the tyro announcers, Millersville can feel proud of a successful radio season. jtf3BROADCASTS PRINCIPALS, “CHIMES OF NORMANDY" HE college choir with its sixty-four voices is the only choral organiza-| tion of the college. Within the past year, the members have submitted themselves to rigid training in order to reach their goal of better performances and larger audiences. Under the direction of Melzer R. Porter the choir presented THE MESSIAH by George F. Handel, on Sunday, December 13, in celebration of the Christmas season. Saturday, April 10, saw the choir members variously disguised for their roles in the charming light opera by Robert Planquette. THE CHIMES of NORMANDY. Both of these major performances were presented with orchestral accompaniment. Aside from the monthly vesper services, the organization also sang for the Lancaster County school directors and presented a concert in the Capitol Theatre, Lancaster. BAND With the blore of trumpets, the trill of reeds, and the rottle of drums, Millersvillc's "bigger and better" band ushered In the home stand of our Black and Gold fighting eleven. Under the oblc baton of Melzer R. Porter ond glorified by the presence of our colorful drum-major, Paul Bechord, this organization was foremost in stimulating a new spirit among the students. Pep meetings in chopel, Fridoy-night rallies, Home-Coming Doy, and other festivities were enlivened by the music of this ever-populor aggregation. The bond also made a fine appearance on foreign soil when it accompanied the team to Shippensburg. Local popularity wos agoin acknowledged by on appearonce in Lancaster's Welfare parade. The lotter part of the college year sow the members of Millersville's bond in concert roles.ORCHESTRA COLLEGE ORCHESTRA Dramatic evenings at Millersville would doubtless lack a certain air of grace were it not for the orchestra. Although it is small and not fully orchestrated, this ensemble of young musicians deserves more commendation than it usually receives. "The play’s the thing," but intermissions always pass more pleasantly when Mr. Porter's orchestra is present to set them to music.

Williams Drums Edward Ditzler Marimba Elizabeth Brock SNAPPER THE STAFF MARTLY attired and evincing a zestful spirit, a rejuvenated Snapper made its bow September 17. Making a complete break with our college papers of the past, this new journalistic effort was met with both approval and disapproval. However, as the college year neared termination, it was noticed that the students awaited with interest each issue of the paper. The editor and his staff feel justly proud to have instilled into the student body such a fine interest in school activities. Miss Marion Spencer has continued as advisor. STAFF Editor-in-Chief: John C. Ursprung Assistant Editor: Eugene P. Bable Business Manager: Robert V. DuffeyTOUCHSTONE THE TOUCHSTONE COMMITTEE With the appearance of the 1937 edition of the TOUCHSTONE, Millersville has its first all-college yearbook. The idea of an all-school book was first set forth by Mr. Burl N. Osburn in the spring of '36. In the fall, a committee headed by Mr. S. B. Stayer drew up a plan for publishing this type of book. The two provisions of this plan are: first, the TOUCHSTONE shall be financed by the four classes through the Student Activities fund; second, the classes shall elect annually a TOUCHSTONE committee, consisting of four seniors, three juniors, two sophomores, and one freshman. The classes adopted the plan. In the absence of Dr. Tanger, Mr. Dilworth named Dr. Dean Dutcher editorial advisor, Mr. Talbot A. Hoover as business overseer, and Mr. Osburn as technical expert. The committee of ten was elected A staff made up of members of the entire student body was chosen to work with this committee. Special credit is due Harvey Rettew and James Adams for the art work in the 1937 TOUCHSTONE, and to Kenneth Greenfield for photography. The TOUCHSTONE committee: seniors, Leah E. Burg (editor-in-chief), Joseph L. Pennington (business manager), Minda L. Morrison, Paul W. Weikel; juniors, Anna Kritscher, Robert V. Duffey, Robert F. Williams; sophomores, Anna Mary Smith, Mark R. Herr; freshman, Harry Lines.NORMAL LITERARY SOCIETY OFFICERS OF THE SOCIETY ORMAL Literary society inaugurated a busy year with an informal reception for the freshmen. Chapel programs and interesting presentations at regular meetings engaged her talent throughout the year. The many new books presented to the college library by this society have contributed much to the enjoyment of the students' reading this year and, Normal hopes, for many years to come. Normal celebrated her 79th anniversary on October 23. Hope LeBar Roberts, a keen commentator on current world affairs and a well-known poet, was the guest speaker of the evening. Albert S. Ebbert, '38. also entertained with several fine vocal numbers. President: Vice-president: Secretory: Treasurer: Critic: OFFICERS: First Semester Second Semester Charles O. Davies John A.

After she had captured the laurels in the campaign for new members, Page set a fast pace for providing entertainment throughout the year. Outstanding on Page's schedule of events were the Freshman reception, the fall tennis tournament, the Anniversary program, the Lincoln's Birthday chapel program, the art contest, and the joint Christmas meeting with Normal. Sanders P. McComsey is the faculty advisor to whom goes more than a considerable share of credit for another successful Page year.

A carnival and a spring fashion show were high-lights of a busy year for the day-student women. The room contest and the rummage sale will long be remembered by the dormitory co-eds. 1936-37 has seen the granting of two long-desired privileges to the boarding students. Through the fine cooperation of the administration and the men’s and women's dormitory governments, Millersville's dorm residents have continuous light circuit and are permitted to have radios in their rooms. These are the things that go far towards making dormitory life more home-like. Certainly boarding students of years to come will be as appreciative of them as we (remembering the days of 10:30 •’lights") have been.

Ping pong tables, radios, chess, and checker boards have been added to the equipment of the rooms and have attracted much attention. Such activities are especially appreciated by the dormitory men. The Men’s Community Association is also collaborating with the Y. M. C. A. in furnishing a reception room in the men's dormitory. A social high-light on the 1936-37 calendar was the Day Students' Frolic which the men and women commuters joined forces to put across. The men day-students also sponsored their annual wrestling show and dance with traditional success. Officers of M. C. A.: Officers of M. D. S.

A. offer a variety of activities. Both groups cooperate in arranging the Sunday evening vespers, while the Y. W. holds mid-week devotional services every Wednesday evening. The annual fellowship banquet was a colorful and enjoyable affair. This year the Mothers' Weekend play was GASOLINE GYPSIES. This production was a fine example of the type of cooperation which exists between the two "Y's.” The two organizations also sponsored the early-morning carol service at Christmas time. The citizens of Millersville have come to regard this service as traditional and appreciate the Christmas spirit which this custom helps to spread abroad.

The Rural club has for its purpose the understanding of rural problems. It aims to promote interest in rural education and supplements the rural course. Last year the club sent a delegate to the convention of the American Country Life Association at Kalamazoo, Michigan. The data which this delegate brought back to the Rural club was extremely valuable. This year the fourteenth annual Rural Conference was held on March 20, in the college chapel. Carl C. Taylor, advisor in rural sociology and economics to the National Department of Agriculture, was the guest speaker. Raymond Hovis, supervisor of the rural school in the training school, is the faculty advisor of the organization. officers President: Vice-president: Secretory: Treasurer: First Semester Robert N.

The 1936-37 Citamard season opened at Millersville with an evening's entertainment at which newcomers to the boards displayed their special abilities. Such an array of talent was uncovered that a new system of one-act play production was inaugurated. Volunteer directors chose their own casts. Each had complete charge of his own play. The result was that the club enjoyed a variety of well-produced shows throughout the season.CITAMARD PLAYERS The production of BERKELEY SQUARE came as a climax to this one-act play work. Citamard presented this delicate piece in the college chapel on February 20. Robert Williams handled the role of Peter Standish very commendably. The three feminine leads, Ruth Dissinger, Mary Joan Clodfelter, and Louise Gibble were satisfactory in their varied type portrayals. The entire cast, chosen by the try-out system, did a fine piece of work with a play that called for a delicate touch and a fine understanding.

Millersville's branch was established in 1935. The primory aim of the organization is to give industrial arts men an opportunity to grow professionally through the bonds of fraternolism. lota Lambda Sigma played a big part in the Industrial Arts conference which was held on the campus on April 10. SL President W Barton Johnson Vice-president: Elvin W. Diehl OFFICERS: Secretary-treasurer: Rolph S. Padon Historian: John A. KarsnltxINDUSTRIAL ARTS SOCIETY FRESHMEN ELECTRICIANS HE Industrial Arts society is an active organization made up of men enrolled in the industrial arts course. It engages in carrying out professional programs and projects, sponsoring social events, and rendering campus services in the interest of the college. At its monthly meetings, topics pertinent to industrial arts and related subjects are discussed. From time to time, guest speakers bring their viewpoints to the members' attention. This practice tends to broaden the industrial arts student's perspective of his field and of its work. The society benefited greatly this year through a revision of its constitution. This action was the result of a desire for improvement in the procedure of the business meetings. OFFICERS: President: Paul W. Weikel Vice-president: Charles 0. Dovics Secretory: Anthony R. Yuknavich Treasurer: William J. WornerINDUSTRIAL ARTS THEATRE CLUB The Industrial Arts Theatre Club is one of the most active organizations on the campus. This group has an important share in the production of the various plays given throughout the year. The club had its "big moment" in the staging of the annual senior class play. THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON. Other creditable staging and lighting effects were achieved in the Citamard player's BERKELEY SQUARE and the operetta, THE CHIMES OF NORMANDY. In order to get a conception of how modern, well-equipped theatres work, the club made an inspection trip to the Hershey Theatre at Hershey, Pennsylvania. It was decided that the set-up there was about "tops.'" Gcnerol monoger; Charles W. Buckley Assistant manogcr; Emory Edmunds Head electrician: Chorles O. Davies Assistant electricion: Anthony R.

Its semi-monthly meetings offered numbers featuring both college and outside talent. Under the leadership of Harvey Rettew, the first semester program committee arranged a highly successful initiation meeting, talks, lectures, and demonstrations of scientific phenomena. During the second semester, Irving Shelley guided the committee whose prize accomplishment was a mock trial staged at the February meeting, Oxygen successfully sued Hydrogen for divorce. A bird contest was held each semester. The winners were awarded an outing to Perry's Point to see the migrating birds.ENGLISH CLUB CREATIVE MOMENT NGUSH grammar and literature are the subjects of study of the English club. The group set two aims for itself this year. Frrst, emphasis was placed on personal development in the use of the language. Written, oral, and conversational English were the fields of endeavor. Each month a prize was awarded for the best piece of creative writing. The second aim was professional education. Programs built on this theme brought to the club speakers who told of the problems encountered in actual schoolroom practice. To aid members in the selection of fine books, the English club has two librarians, who present a list of outstanding books each month. At the close of the year a prize is awarded to the member who has done I he most reading. A new activity this year was the presentation of programs in county high schools. These programs were first approved by Sanders P. McComsey, the club's faculty advisor, and then by the members of the group. OFFICERS: President: Adeloide B. Ryon Secretory: Mary S. Rohrer Vice-president: Vivian L. Hoffman Treasurer: Josephine M. JuryTRAVEL CLUB TRAVEL CLUB AT HOME At home and abroad the members of Travel Club have wandered, learning about strange lands and peoples. Most of these trips were imaginary ones, but a field trip was also a part of the organization's activities during the year 1936-37. Mrs. Tanger presented one of the most enjoyable programs of the year which included an illustrated talk on her recent visit to Germany. Most certainly the members of the M. S. T. C. Travel Club will be able to travel more intelligently and derive more benefits from their journeyings than would otherwise have been the case because of the information gained in this club. Miss Wickey is Travel Club's official guide. OFFICERS: President: Dorothy H. Russell Secretory: Louise S. Welch Vice-president: Alice V. Coshmon Treosurer; Corolinc L.

The members devote most of their time to the study of Roman life in an endeavor to gain more knowledge of classical times fhan that obtained in regular class-room work. Such supplementary material will certainly be useful in making language classes more interesting. A banquet in the best Roman tradition was a unique feature of the April convention of the Council. Miss Emily Snyder is the advisor of the Olympian Council. OFFICERS: President: Robert D. Slough Vice-president: John Buckwoltcr Secretory-treasurer: Alice B. GroffPRIMARY CLUB A get-acquainted party was the Primary Club's first social event in a busy year. Other programs were planned so as to be professionally valuable. They included a demonstration of Monkey Blocks; a talk by Dr. Cecelia Stuart, of the State Department of Public Instruction; a health program with talks by a child specialist, a nurse, and a physical education instructor; the observance of the Kindergarten Centennial; and the presentation of Marguerite de Angeli, author of HENNER'S LYDIA, in cooperation with Library Science club.

This group was organized not as a requirement. It came into existence as the result of a spontaneous desire on the part of the math students who saw in it an opportunity for leadership training and a means of broadening their knowledge in their major field. Interest in the formation of a math club was first evidenced in the math methods class. From idea to action was a short step. With Mr. Boyer, mathematics instructor as factulty advisor, the group met for the purpose of organization. A tentative constitution was adopted. Howard Stauffer was elected to the presidency, and Elwood Schreffler was chosen to keep the records. It was decided to make the society honorary since keys will be presented to members who have faithfully met the requirements. There are thirty charter members. Math Club’s semi-monthly meetings are in charge of various members of the group. On April 29, the club sponsored a program by the magician, William Whitenight. The advancement of the interests of mathematics may well be the slogan of Millersville s youngest organization.library science club ■PiHi.HnH ANNUAL INVENTORY Promotion of a professional attitude among the students of the library science course is the chief aim of the Library Science club. New methods, better library service, and professional aids are brought to the members' attention. During the first week in November, the group celebrated Children's Book Week with a radio program about new children's books and a meeting at which new juvenile books in the Training School library were discussed. Miss Ganser sponsors the Library Science club. OFFICERS: President: Adeloide B. Ryon Secretory: Fronces E. 8oir Vice-president: Morie A. McGinnis Treasurer: M. Irene Stauffervarsity club THE LETTER MEN To promote interest in athletics, to encourage sportsmanship, and to give due recognition to outstanding athletes is the triple function of the Varsity club. When a man has won a letter in one of the four major sports, football, baseball, basketball, or tennis, he automatically becomes a member of the club. Varsity club keys are given to all men who have been in the club one year. Sweaters are presented by the club to those men who have earned two letters, but the athlete must be a sophomore to receive this honor. Gold awards are given to senior members of the club. Funds are obtained by selling tags, pennants, and programs during the football season. Varsity club sponsors two social affairs during the year. They are the football dance and the Varsity "Drag." The Varsity sweethearts this year were Minda L. Morrison, Doreatha M. Hoffman, Estella V. Kurkowski, and Jane B. Wilkinson.BASEBALL WORKING OUT THE KINKS SCHEDULE: Millersville Bloomsburg Kutrtown Shippensburg Millersville West Chester Millersville Alumni ot Trenton ot Millersville ot Millersville ot Millersville at Kutrtown ot Millersville at Shippensburg ot Millersville Spring, 1937, found coach Pucillo guiding the destinies of Millersville's baseball nine. Bill Palmer, former Millersville baseball star, helped build up a squad that gave all indications of a winning season. Cooch: John Pucillo Assistont Cooch: Bill Palmer Managers: Charles O. Davies Paul W. Weikel Wilford BucherFOOTBALL SPRING TRAINING ITH the addition of Mr. Intreri and Mr. Haller to our coaching staff, the determined Millersville Eleven opened their season with a victory over Bloomsburg. Under Captain "Pop" Warner's gallant leadership the team surpassed last year's record by scoring three victories out of seven hard games. A record game was played by the team against the Shippensburg machine. Although the fray ended in a defeat for our team. Millersville had the distinct honor of being the first foe to score on our undefeated opponents. The season ended before a large Home Coming Day crowd, when our gridders met a stronger and faster Kutztown eleven. Two varsity men will be lost to the team by graduation this year: Elwood Gerlitzki and Ray Shingler. These two men have given unstintingly of their time and energy during their four years at Millersville. Their loss will be keenly felt. However, early spring work-outs have already given evidence of the fact that probably a snappy team will be "in there" fighting next fall when Ihe first whistle blows.FOOTBALL ACTION! 1936-37 Millersville Opponents Bloomsburg 9 0 California 7 12 Montclair 16 7 Mansfield 0 6 Shippcnsburg 6 19 Wilson 34 7 Kutztown 7 19BASKETBALL Dotter Rannels Wileman Pincavage Rutherford Smith Edmiston BASKETBALL Captain Bishop THE MANAGERS Millersville Opponents Susquehonno University 57 29 Wilson 51 27 Shippensburg 43 36 Bloomsburg 21 32 Mansfield 43 40 Kutztown 54 41 Trenton 77 36 Wilson 78 16 Monsfield 46 11 Susquehanna University 63 30 Shippensburg 52 29 California 37 34 Indiano 26 23 At the close of a very successful season, the Black and Gold five lay claim to the mythical state teachers college championship. Thirteen victories out of fifteen contests is a record which admits of no argument as to the justice of that claim. In their fifteen games Coach Pucillo's men scored 732 points, or an average of 48.6 markers per contest, while their opponents were able to score only 455 counters, or an average of 30.3, a game. The same squad, with the exception of their great captain, Richard 'Max" Bishop, remain to bear the colors for Millersville next year.

With the return of such veterans as Captain Mervin Miller. John German, and Robert Duffey, and the addition of Henry Buckwalter, winner of the Page fall tournament. Coach Beckmyer had plenty of material with which to build a winning squad.

S. T. C.'s calendar of women's sports. Under the tutelage of Miss Wickey and Jeanne Barnes, student-expert of the bow and arrow from Lancaster, a goodly number of girls were seen on the campus aiming for the center ring. This club, which for a few years was missing from our activities, has again attracted many of the coeds. A good way to learn how to aim your darts, girls!VOLLEYBALL In early autumn, the girls' sport program began with the outdoor volleyball tournament Sixteen teams, all with eyes set on the championship, entered the lists. After an exciting series of rivalries, the Toppers, captained by Madalon Witmeyer, subdued Alta Slaugh’s Altonians with a 21-1 score. MEMBERS OF THE WINNING TEAM ARE Madalon Witmeyer Betty Weaver Ruth Jacobs Edith Carper Eileen Kehr Eleanor Worst LoVcrne Foutz Kathryn Hocker Dorothy Dick TUMBLING CLUB 1936 VOLLEYBALL CHAMPS — THE TOPPERS Gracefully curving through the air and o’er the mats, the Women's Tumbling clubs roll into action weekly at M. S. T. C. First there are the beginners who, after much hard work and practice may reach the advanced club standards. At joint meetings, both groups are taught the technique of modern dancing by Miss Wickey. By the way, the theme song of the tumblers is "Roll, roll, roll, yourself gently down the mat." JUST BEFORE THE TUMBLEHOCKEY THE VICTORIOUS BULLIES The most closely-contested tournament of the fall athletic season was on the new hockey field where fourteen interclass teams fought resolutely for one of the highly prized "M's." In the final elimination between two sophomore teams, the Bullies rampaged till dusk to conquer the Mysteries, 4-1, in a thrilling fray. BASKETBALL Girls' inter-class basketball came to an exciting climax this year when the lists had been narrowed to one sophomore and one freshman team. The play-off went in favor of Edith Carper's sophs. The freshman team showed a fine spirit and put up a plucky fight for the coveted letters.TOUCHSTONE ADVERTISERS HILL'S TEA ROOM, Millersville, Pa.
