September, 1937! Ambitious Freshmen came forth from obscure existence
in various high schools! One hundred titty-nine students, predestined for
greater scholastic and athletic achievements, Were enrolled in Millersville
State Teachers' College. On December eighteenth the Freshmen sponsored a
Christmas Dance, "The Mistletoe Shag," with the Blue Moon Orchestra-their
first social function.
Prior to the close of the first semester, an important meeting ot the class
was held, at which time the Freshmen representatives to the newly organized
Student Council were elected. Those elected to the Council by a popular vote
Were: Beth Stauffer, Edgar Clark, Gilbert Young, and Harvey Staufter. At this
meeting a motion was made by the class to purchase a scrap book in which
should be kept a record ot the four years' activities. Dorothy Brubaker and
Fern Everhart were appointed heads of this project.
The whirling Winds of March twenty-sixth brought to the foreground the
FreshInen's second social affair of the 1937-1938 college term. Cornprenez-
vous? Of course you do. That was the "Collegiate Hop."

We may not show it at all times, but We do have deeply imbedded in our
midst the future talent of M.S,T.C. ln the athletic World such outstanding
accomplishments as those made by Ioe Hogentogler, Dan Miller and Charles
Tomporowski, our Frosh Pigskin Carriers, are noteworthy, While our Worthy
ball Cagers are seen in the persons ot lake Shirk and Myron Hlywiak. Zip!
To be sure, we cannot omit such a fine sport as Wrestling, and our entries to its
realm are the three huskies, Dennis Myers, Paul Menkitis, and Earl Walton.
Although last, but not least, We have a real champion, none other than our
own tacttul, terrific, tennis smasher, Gilbert Young.

Nancy Meiskey, Marilyn Crook, Dorothy Brubaker, Mary Libby Reed, and Ruth

Dramatic talent also runs in the Frosh Line-up. Alma Smith and Herbert
Ennett kept us on the slate in "The Tailor Made Man" production.
Now, turning to literary ability, we cannot omit the constructive Work
done by several of our classmates on the "Snapper" Staff, namely: Nancy
Meiskey, Beth Stauffer, Florence Miller, and lune Budd.
The class, as a Whole, is merely in the first stages of its organization, but
did do several beneficial acts during the year such as, the purchase of
twenty-four recordings for the college electric phonograph which is used and
enjoyed by everyone.

Ding! Dong! Station SOPH on the air again. Through the courtesy of
lohn Ursprung, jovial editor of the "Touchstone," We present sundry flashes
and dots and dashes-news of the Sophomore Class. Attention! All fellow
students everywhere. Let's go to press.

And the ground was
one knows when that will be. All talent for this big broadcast of '38 was found
in the Sophomore Class. Bing Fornwalt, Flossie Miller, Snutty Smith, lim
Vermeychuk, Betty Brock, and Davey Booth helped make the show quite
entertaining. About this time dieting was quite popular as admission to the
cast was determined by feminine poundage.
-Ehemann and Rutherford garner due credit as basketball team wins
championship. Although only sophs, these two fellows contributed their
abilities to our court-chasers. lncidentally, Ehemann was high scorer among
-At the moment, the Social Committee is tearing things apart planning
for the Sophomore Hop. As ever, the sophisticated sophs intend to be different
and use a carnival theme.

WHAT WE DTD--
Who did shine! You've got it--the Class at thirty-nine. Breaking all
precedent, they chose for their prexy the iirst female gavel-'rapper in the history
of Millersville. Like a flash, they started the ball rolling and the dogs barking
when they started to roast them over a fire built in Gables Woods.
And did they eat-everything from corn and dogs to the mustard Mr.
Lingentelter found behind a tree, But they lived to carry on and gave us
one of the greatest dances of the year. The "Bowery Ball" they called it!
What a bowery and what a ball was held Within those gymnasium Walls.
With the modern swing rhythms of a hot band, the Gibblites took the whole
school and the faculty tor a gala evening of fun into the imaginary slums.
Again they break all precedents and hold a mid-year election, causing
much argument pro and con and a re-election of that same feminine leader.
All ready to go again-but wait a minute, a controversy about the method of
"Touchstone" Editor election is brought to light. These Iuniors don't fool

around, though. Within three weeks it was all decided, and election returns
were posted. Eugene Bable is the one who is to carry the burdens oi the
"Touchstone" tor his fellow classmates. But not alone. Every enterprise must
have a business manager, and Mark Herr is the one. What a combination
this Iunior Class will have. lust in case it's not known to you-these two
men worked in these same positions on the "Snapper" this year and made a
mighty fine job of it. No wonder the Iuniors can shine.
Oh boy, here comes some more fun. Round and round they go, where
they stop, nobody knows. And that's just what happened when their roller-
skating party was held at the Olympia in Lancaster. lt was worth the thirty
cents admission to watch them, even it you cou1dn't skate. When they got

started on that slippery floor, they couldn't stop, and so they were destined
to skate forever and an evening in one big circle. Then there was that peppy
cheer-leader, Ioe Wolfe, by name, who couldnteven get started because he
was keeping such close company with the floor. What talent was discovered
that night that had long been hid under a bushel. lack Cox came shining
through with his when he put the Junior Prom over with a bit of gusto
and cheerio to the Iuniors. For now they are to rise one rung higher on the
ladder of their college career. Next year they will hold the always enviable
positions oi the Seniors of M.S.'l'.C. May they prove Worthy of the honor and
may We Wish them the best ot luck, the best of fun, and the best of success

THE 1938 TQUCHSTCDNE
Making a break from the past few years, "The l938 Touchstone" began
to change things in general early last fall. Even the administration helped
change things by presenting the staff with a new office-a gift which proved
a very valuable one.
After a numerous amount of gray hairs had surrounded the editor's head,
a new financial plan was accepted by the college, whereby each student
paid a year-book fee of one dollar, and the clubs paid for their cut and page
space. This plan proved to be the first practical one "The Touchstone" has
had in the past few years.
The staff, comprising students from the four classes, worked hard and
diligently, although there were a few who had to be coaxed for several months
before they handed in their assignments. However, a year of good-feeling
existed between the members of the staff, and friction was at a minimum.
Nevertheless, some trouble had to come-and it came from the advertising
department. However, along came Iohnny Garman at the same time, and
the machinery soon started working-in better shape than before.
Dr. Dean Dutcher, dean to the Class of '38, graciously accepted the adviser-
ship of "The 1938 Touchstone" and served admirably as such. On several
occasions, his timely advice was of incalculable value to the editor.

"Open house, girls! Look at that room! Who put that piece of paper on
my floor?" Even Mussolini's Home can't look any brighter than our dormitory
rooms did, after the girls had finished preparing for the annual room contest
and the first "Open House." And it was no wonder, what with all students
and faculty members invited to visit our rooms. That was only one of the
successful activities carried on by the government during the past year.
Every month the students met in the girls' reception room for a social hour over
tea cups. But the high point in our social year came when we entertained
fifty of our mothers on March 25-27, in the most successful Mothers' Week-End
in recent years. With the aid of the new recording amplifying system, the
dormitory governments have made our long winter evenings more pleasant,
for music has been indeed plentiful. More lenient privileges in a social way
for the underclassmen, and more healthful ones for the upperclassmen, took
away the pride in saying "we're seniors," and made us all more nearly equal.
Maybe "move-up day" lost some of its glamour for the lowerclassmen under
the new system of rules, but it didn't change for the seniors, as they left their
deserted seats to the iuniors.

OFFICERS MEN'S CCMMUNITY
Herein is embodied the spirit ot the community more commonly known
as the men's dormitory. Dormant for years past, begins to show signs ot
coming out ot hibernation. Meetings are interesting. Parliamentary procedure
takes a back seat. "Bull-sessions" predominate. Ceremonial robes are rather
unique. Pajamas, slippers, and oftentimes dressing gowns are worn by the
dashing young "boarder." Shut-up is a by-word. Order is the lost chord
at meetings. Meetings are held in the M.C.A. room. More commonly known
as "Pinochle Haven." ls backing movement for a degree of "Master of
Pinochlef' Formed a mysterious "Committee of 1l." It is still a mystery.
Brought out its domestic tendencies by helping to furnish a reception room.
Amplifying system a project. "Hole-in-the-Wall" a major event. Has juris-
diction over a section known as "Bloody Alley." lts members enjoy good
literature so much that they carry magazines from reading room.

the process of refurnishing and beautifying the rooms has continued. The
club-room has metamorphised into a well-appointed living room with the
addition of chairs, tables, drapes, and rug. Not all the attention is centered
on government and interior decorating. Social activities occasionally come
to the fore. Highlights of this year's program were: Christmas party, Barn
Dance, and Food Sale. Special features are the teas which revivify the spirits
of this enthusiastic group.

Newly painted, the so-called "Hole in the Ground" looked rather inviting
last fall as the day-men took up their quarters for another year. The floor
soon was covered with paper, butts, and even freshmen, who did rather well
last fall by way of behaving-under V.C. headman Banzhof. However,
destruction soon occurred as the play-room of the boarders was joined with
the room of the day-men by the removal of the wall between. For once the
commuters had space to breathe-as well as study. Under a competent
athletic committee, an intramural football schedule was arranged, which
proved quite successful. So well was it supported that basketball and baseball
schedules were also arranged. As customary, the sunlight boys held a
smoker during the first semester, and some of the boys were quite uncom-
fortable from drinking too much-orangeade. The Student Council finally
organized, the fellows from the "Hole" decided against supporting the Council
financially. However, the other groups said yes, and the day-rnen had to
join in. They still want to know-what for?
Besides using their room for study, clothes closet, and lunch-eating, the
boys also found a little space for ping-pong tables, where many a historic
battle took place. Particularly engaging were the battles between lack Davis,
wit of Middletown, Dirt Rees, star athlete, and Bob Duffey, prexy of the day-clan.

The Society kindly revived the poor freshmen with ice cream sandwiches
after those very exhaustive tests in the Chapel. Page very graciously enter-
tained the new students at its annual Reception in the College Gym.
Well known for its outstanding educational and cultural presentations,
Page provided us a half hour's very delightful entertainment in the person of
Mrs. Irma Fapeano, soprano soloist and graduate of Westminster Choir School.
Still musically inclined, Page offered a student borrowed from the well-
known Curtis Institute to entertain us.
To create clean honest rivalry among our student body, and to teach them
to play for the love of the game, the Society sponsored the Men's and Women's
Singles Tennis Tournaments.
Using her own talent entirely, Page went far back into history and again
tried Brutus for the murder of Caesar.
lust to prove there is a Santa Claus, Page joined with Normal, her sister
society, in the Christmas levity presented in our chapel. At that time a few
of our notables received gifts.
Always keeping uppermost in her mind the mental and cultural welfare
of not only Pageites, but Normalites as well, this year Page added to her ever
growing library new books to the value of one hundred and sixty dollars.
Page celebrated her birthday on May I3, with every one of her eighty-three
candles beaming brightly.

"Your friend"-that was the slogan of the Y. W. C. A. this year. We
began to practice that doctrine by helping to make the new dormitory students
feel at home during Freshman Week. Then we labored strenuously with them
over the Fellowship Banquet-speeches and all. ln order to make our "Y"
life here more natural, the two Christian Associations agreed to pool their
efforts and ambitions for the year, beginning the drive toward a single organ-
ization. And so it was with the Y. M.'s aid that we played, discussed, and
worshipped together at the Wednesday evening services and the Sunday
Vespers. The school considered a new event, Parents' Day, and the with
the aid of all, sponsored it. Christmas came and we entertained, or perhaps
annoyed, Millersville for the first time with midnight carol-singing. On the
stage, we lived with the tramp in the Christmas play, "Christmas Destiny,"
and with "Anne of Green Gables" on Mother's Week-end. Then we formed
a little band and went out to pick some violets, forgetting broken backs as we
saw the pleasant smiles when we delivered them to the sick. What passed
between may have been calm and cool enough, but we began and closed
'the term with a crackling fireside service-epart of the spirit.

During the school year, the Y. M. C. A. exerted a marked influence on the
campus, beginning at the tall enrollment by extending a friendly hand of wel-
come and guidance to the new students. In conjunction with the boarding
men, the group converted the old "Y" quarters into the homey men's reception
room. Later in the fall, the first "Y" sponsored boys' dorm room contest was
held and met with surprising success.
An asset to the spiritual side of the "Y" was the inauguration of joint
weekly meetings. The union of the two "Y's" in planning these meetings was
largely responsible for their success. These get-togethers were usually of
religious character, and always merited student support by appealing to an
increasingly larger group. Programs were varied, and both open discussions
and music played an important part in them. The year saw the "Y" consider-
ably strengthened, and placed in a position to go forward toward school and
youth service of ever increasing value.

One of the first progressive steps taken this year by the local chapter was
to find a better meeting place. After roaming quite a bit, the remodeled "Y"
room was chosen as the haven oi the intelligentsia.
Tuesday Chapel programs were again presided over by the brethren, and,
after several months of planning, pleading, and philosophising, the fraternity's
jurisdiction was extended to Friday as Well as Tuesday. In this light, Mark
Herr did an excellent job as chairman of the Chapel Program Committee.
Following a precedent oi installing honorary members, Sigma Chapter
received Mr. Biemsderfer, Principal of Manor Township High School, and
Dr. Wray, of our faculty, as honorary members.
By way of a social whirl, Sigma Chapter combined with the local chapter
of Iota Lambda Sigma and sponsored an Inter-Fraternity Ball on April 9. The
ball was preceded by the annual dinner, whereat the president and the secre-
tary received their service keys for the hard labor rendered the brethren.

Iota Chapter, still in its infancy, is doing big things. A select group of
Industrial Arts men desiring fraternal brotherhood. Selecting Brother Howard
as vice-president of the Grand Chapter, gives Millersville something for which
to be proud. Membership for this three-year-old, some forty-five strong.
Iota Chapter set up a goal for which Industrial Arts men may strive. Gives
recognition to those worthy men in the field.
Well represented in Baltimore at the A.V.A. and Grand Chapter meeting.
Although the baby chapter, received recognition and respect when its presence
was made known.
Combined with the Phi Sigs to hold the first inter-frat dance on campus.
Four of our men advertised the field by their fine showing in the exhibit booth
at the State Farm Show.
Many leaders of the school in the classroom, clubs, and social functions
are Iota members. In a few words, naturally outstanding.

THE COLLEGE Cl-TCTR
Behold the Seraphic Chorus! These melodeers have given inestimable
service in many Ways. The first big event of the choral year was the concert
for Homecoming Day in November. Following close on the heels of this jam
session came the beautiful Christmas oratorio, "The Messiah."
ln Ianuary, the nightingales chirped for the Chase lecture and the School
Directors' confab. Their tintinnabular strains next made glad the hearts of
all maters in March.
The season's climax came With the Gilbert and Sullivan masterpiece,
"Rudcligore." The prima donnas oi this operatic review included Mary LeFevre
as the heroine, Anna Mary Smith as the charming but balmy Margaret, and
Kathryn Lederer as Hannah. The Carusorians were the popular Albert
Ebbert as a ripping tar ot the sea, Francis Spickler as Sir Buthven, alias Robin,
the farmer, and the versatile Robert Williams as Sir Despard.

Tl-lE COLLEGE BAND
Providing music for any event has been the chief activity of the Band.
Its busy time Was, of course, during the pigskin season when it strutted its stuff
for all games at home and traveled to Kutztown to bring spirit to the last game
of the season. Under the capable stick-Waving of the spectacular and goose-
stepping drum maior, Robert Williams, the Band was shown to advantage
many times during the year. On Homecoming Day, it presided at the concert
presented on the terrace previous to the game. Pep meetings at Friday
assemblies during both football and basketball seasons became more peppy
because of its presence. The Ground-Breaking exercises, which took place
in February, were enhanced by its music, and the Spring Concert in April
under Mr. Porter's leadership was quite successful. Student representatives
to the Music Committee were Mary Alice Breuninger and Robert Williams.
The personnel of the organization includes:
Clarinets: Richard Brenner, Charles Burner, Iohn Garman, Arlene tones, lack Shalter.

Roddy Scientific Society, with the largest club membership on the campus,
can be classified as one of the most active. A welcome address by the
President, Harry Hersh, opened the season, also, a few remarks by the adviser,
Mr. Beckmyer. The following meeting, a scientific initiation for old and new
members was enhanced by refreshments of cider, pretzels, and big apples,
fruit and otherwise. A bird contest was held, and the five lucky persons able
to name all the birds exhibited were awarded a trip to Perry Point at migration
time. -A season wouldn't be complete if Dr. lustin Roddy, namesake of the
club, didn't speak at least once. This year he spoke on the topic, "Minerals
Found Around Millersville," and, as always, he brought outstanding specimens
to illustrate his lecture. Prom the new members of the faculty came another
speaker, none other than Dr. Wray, who talked on "Scientific Research in
Education-What It Means and What It ls." He mentioned briefly various
methods of looking for truth, and then took up in detail our approach to truth
by means of scientific reasoning.
Harvey Rettew was elected to guide the club through the second semester.
There were times when a speaker could not be secured, and motion pictures
in the field of science were shown. Mr. Charles Morris Veachs, from Altoona,
spoke at one of the February meetings on "A New Theory of Energy." Student
members also provided interesting programs through single scientific demon-
strations. Some from this season: "Bird specimens," described by Harvey
Rettewp "The Making of a Depressions Plant," by Iune Hartranftg "Demon-
strations in Elementary Photography," by our campus photographer, Kenneth
Greenfield, and Paul Grebinger's "Discussion on Stars" in connection with
Christmas. A plan of the tree placement was made by a few of the club mem-
bers, and, by following this plan, the Roddy Scientific Society hopes to plant
more trees in the most appropriate spots of our beautiful campus.

After years of hoping, planning, and, perhaps, praying, there finally ap-
peared on our campus this year a practicing Student Government Body for
"all" the students. The egg from which the present "chick" was hatched was
laid last year, and has reached its current stage of development mainly
through the efforts of William Bolger. Bill's excellent work was recognized
by the student body through his election as first president of the Student
For once in their lives the students found a place where they could say
anything-or almost anything-and what things they said. Of course, all
the discussions were scribbled in the book by Frank Thomas, but things for
the most part remained secret.
A bit of diversion for the governors and governesses was a luncheon With
the administration over scrambled eggs-but eggs weren't the only things
scrambled at that luncheon.
ln a more serious vein,-for a one-year-old, the Council has acquitted
itself quite Worthily, and has proved that student governing can be a practical
thing at M.S.T.C.

writing, prose, or poetry. Another prize sponsored by the English Club is

which was originally organized for students majoring in English, but which
now welcomes anyone having particular interests in literary activities, is

Thirty-two girls and three advisers got together last fall and formed the
present Travel Club. Although hampered by duties at school and other
things which made them stay in Millersville or other nearby places, the
Travellers managed to tour the entire world in the spare moments ot two
semesters. This world cruise was made possible through the lectures of
experienced travellers, who had already "been places and clone things."
Among the talks given: Miss Hughes' experiences at Monticello, Miss Adams'
tour to China: and Mr. Savage's five dollar iaunt from Maine to Florida.
By Way of covering local territory, the club Went exploring in nearby

tempted to present a lively program to its many members. "With What Books
Should a Rural Teacher Become Acquainted? How Can l-landcrafts Be Used
in Assisting the Retarded Child?" Such were the topics resulting in a sus-
tained enthusiasm and attendance throughout the term.
During the year the Club kept in constant touch with former members now
teaching, in order to acquaint them with our projects, including a one-act
Christmas cornedyp the innovation of an lnterest Group, working with balsam
woody and a spring outing in the Pequea Hills.
Climaxing our activities was the fifteenth annual Rural Conference, held
May 25. Through the cooperation of all Ruralitesy the guidance of Mr. Hovis,
Club Adviserg the support of alumni members: and the stimulating addresses
and discussions given by such leaders in Rural Education as Dr, Howard A.

Conference was declared a noteworthy event on the campus.

The Greeks had a word for it! But so did this illustrious group-and that
word is "Classical" After laboring under the ponderous name of Olympian
Council for a few months of the first semester, they decided to change the
name simply to Classical Club. The programs presented by the members
were generally inclined toward the Roman phase of the classical field. Two
highlights among these programs were the "book review" meeting and the
"stamp" meeting. At the former, several books, recently written, and dealing
with people and problems of ancient Rome, were reviewed and discussed.
At the latter, Dr. Cferhart spoke to the club and showed them his various sets
of modern stamps issued in commemoration of some ancient mythological
or historical event.
At mid-year the membership of the club was greatly increased. ln order
not to be outdone by any other organization, this "up and coming" group
followed suit and held a food sale. A question-bee was numbered among
the second semester programs: and, as a last and hearty "Vale" to the Senior
members, and a general "Good-bye for the summer" to the others, the Classical
Club closed its minutes with a rollicking picnic.

Hammers and saws, type and ink, a few more tools, and what do you

Our first meeting took the form of a newspaper correspondents interview.
What's your hobby? Where's your home town? What's your name? We
weren't long getting acquainted. My! Christmas already-come on, fellows,
we've the dorm to decorate. A few boards, some greens and paint, and up
goes a hearty greeting of the season. Well done! We again keep the plan
going and up to the minute. A New Year, and we get some facts from the

Sparks as long as your finger. Oh, no, they Won't hurt you. We've had it
proved to us in a demonstration on high frequency electricity. But from the
beginning we got a shock. Yes, summer is almost here. A hike over the
hills with a scoutmaster proves valuable to our crowd, even though we had to
see it in pictures. But remember, We may be camp directors one fine day,
and we'll need plenty of things to keep campers busy. Yes, the conference,
too. We did our part to keep alive that which We started. Lights, action,
camera, and we are oft to see a nickel made into five cents. Right here in
school, We see such films and many more to keep us in touch with the folks
next door. Nomination opened, now closed, elections over and leaders chose.
We hope next year that everything clicks. Ott goes the power, the wheels
stop turning, and hammers drop.

Although it works behind stage, the Industrial Arts Theatre Club is in the
foreground among campus activities. Dripping sweat and begrimed with
paint and sawdust, the "men-behind-the-scenes'' work hard and, at times,
incessantly to produce such sets as that for "Death Takes a Holiday," which
set, by the way, was designed by Harvey Rettew.
A decided advantage this year to the club was the newly installed lighting
control room which was guaranteed absolutely not to burn up-a decided
advantage over the "sweat box" formerly used.
Because oi their innate tendency to be green, freshmen are not allowed
to become members of this group. However, the upperclassrnen are-and here

"Stepping forward" fittingly describes this large campus body. A smaller
unit joined a larger and broader group-Millersville Primary Club became a
part of the Association for Childhood Education, the nation-wide organization
for progressive primary club members and primary teachers. When one
joins the campus organization, one automatically becomes affiliated with the
Association for Childhood Education and derives such benefits as admittance
to all A. C. E. meetings and the publication, "Childhood Education," sent to
all club officers. Ways of making this invaluable monthly magazine avail-
able to all club members is a serious problem confronting the group.
During the year, some very profitable programs were presented. Miss
Lyles, Director of Elementary Education in York, and Mrs. Iesse B. Dotterer,
fulfilling the same position in Cheltenham Township Public Schools, were two
outstanding speakers for the season. Annually, the spring banquet tops off
the season's social activities.

its time delving into the professional problems of the library world. With
the fervent spirit of all book-lovers, they also perused and discussed their

Introducing the staunch and sturdy marauders of the Millersville sports
kingdom! These progressive huskies constitute the members of the one and
only athletic club on the campus.
Among the masculine musclernen at M.S.T.C., this organization causes
extraordinary interest and has as its members outstanding individuals in our
world of sports. To the interest, cooperation, and willingness of the "Varsity
Gents," Millersville owes its recognition in such fields of sports as football,
basketball, baseball and tennis.
Then, too, we all know of the Varsity Club's prominent work in social
entertainment. The "Varsity Drag" was unanimously crowned "the" dance
of the college term. Lasting remembrances oi the "Drag ot '37" include the
introduction of the "Big Apple," enacted in a football field background under
a canopy of over-hanging pigskins.
Supporting the wearers ot the are the "Booster-ettes," Frances Bair,
Florence Cargas, Estella Kurkowski, and Louise Welch. These saucy little
co-eds were chosen by the Varsity Men and acclaimed "Varsity Sweethearts."
To these worthy heroes who earn their credit by the sweat of the brow,
we are indebted for our athletic success and prevailing accomplishments.

gave a talk to the club and distributed pamphlets on the etiquette of riding.
tVery appropriate, We should say.l During nice weather, moonlight rides are
indulged in. After much falling around, off, and on horses, the club has

The basketball season of 1937-33 came to
a close with Millersville State Teachers Col-
lege being recognized as Mythical State
Teachers Champions for the third time in
four years. Due to the able leadership of
Captain Ice Wileman and the instructive
guidance rendered by Coach Pucillo, the
Marauders were successful in turning back
twelve opponents, while they dropped only
two contests. Climaxing this outstanding
record, the Black and Gold scheduled a con-
test with Long Island University, one of the
best outfits in collegiate circles. The 1600
fans, who witnessed the game, saw Millers-
ville go down in defeat 56-43 only after dis-
playing a brand of basketball rarely seen
in these parts. Coach Clair Bee, tutor of the
Blackbirds, remarked that Coach Pucillo's
quintet was the best team Long Island de-
feated this season.
Four seniors will be lost to the squad for
next year-Captain Ioseph Wileman, lohn
Rees, Richard Todd, and Morris Bannels.
Captain Ioseph Wileman and Coach Iohn Pucillo
Hereafter follows brief summaries of the
more important games.
December 7, 1937. West Chester at West
Chester. Won. 31-30.
This evening found Ioe Wileman and Pete
Edmiston running wild. Pete's floor-work
and Ioe's headwork in detecting a fifth time
out for West Chester helped immeasurably
to win the game. Seconds after Ioe had
calmly sunk the charity throw, which re-
sulted from the technical foul, the game came
to a hCIIOPY ending.
Ianuary 22, 1938. Kutztown at Kutztown.
lt was a heavy-hearted basketball squad
that returned to Millersville on the night of
Ianuary 22. lt all came about as a result of
cr defeat at the hands of a Kutztown ball club
which played a type of ball never practiced
at Millersville. Unable to cope with the rough
tactics displayed by the Golden Avalanche,
the Marauders dropped the tussle in the last
few minutes of play, 44-45. Polischak, a
Maroon and Gold forward, paced the way
for the victors with 17 points, while George
Ehemann led the locals with 13 markers.
Ianuary 24, 1938. West Chester at Lancaster.
A determined group of Millersville cagers
set out on this Monday night to duplicate a
feat which they had accomplished earlier in
the season, to defeat West Chester. That is
exactly what happened. Coming back after
a first half, which presented a picture of
despair to Millersville fans, the Marauders,
led by George Ehemann with 13 markers,
placed themselves in a 32-32 tie with the
Chesterites with only a few minutes remain-
ing to be played. Shortly afterward, lake
Shirk crashed through with a beautiful one-
handed shot, clinching the victory for Millers-
George gets the tap-as usual.
February 4, 1938. Kutztown at Lancaster.
Avenging their only defeat suffered this
far, the Millersvillians applied the pressure
to the Golden Avalanche and succeeded in
conquering by a rather comfortable margin.
Gaining an early lead, the Pucillomen, led
by Ehemann and Todd, held this lead
throughout the fray with a 30-16 victory as
the outcome. Close guarding and rough
tactics on the part of both squads featured
February 18, l938. Bloomsburg at Blooms-
burg. Lost. 36-37.
Allowing the Bloomsburg quintet to gain
a five-point lead on them by the end of the
first half proved disastrous to the invading
Marauders. While Millersville outscored
their opponents in the second half, they were
lacking one point when the final gong
sounded. Iunie Buckles, forward, paced the
way for the Bloomsburg victory with l0
markers. lt was the second loss for Millers-
ville during this season.
February 26, 1938. Shippensburg at Lan-
caster. Won. 55-40.
Millersville chalked up its tenth victory of
the current season at the expense of a fight-
ing Shippensburg five. Coach Pucillo's
charges started out in whirlwind fashion to
garner ten points in the first four minutes
of play. After this, their offense slipped
slightly and the game assumed an interest-
ing aspect and the fans were treated to some
real basketball. Rees, Ehemann, and Shirk
contributed 13, 12, and 12 points respectively
to the Millersville victory.
Gene tried hard, but it rolled out.
March 5, 1938. lndiana at Millersville. Won.
ln a fracas marked with plenty of excite-
ment and accurate passing, the Black and
Gold quintet clinched the Pennsylvania
Mythical State Basketball Title, and closed
one of the most brilliant seasons ever wit-
nessed in the basketball history of Millers-
ville. While the Marauders may have held
a slight edge throughout the game, the rival
squad appeared rather evenly matched and
provided an abundance of competitive court
tactics. George Ehemann, Gene Rutherford,
and Dick Todd led the locals in the scoring
department with l3, l0, and 10 points each.

initial grid fracas of 1937. Two fumbles by

October 16. Montclair at Montclair. Won.
Continuing after a two weeks' absence
from competition, the lntrierimen traveled to
Montclair, New lersey, and met the Teach-
ing Indians of that city. After four quarters
of nip and tuck football, the locals were
successful in scalping the Iersey warriors by
a very narrow margin. Frank Torok, hefty
Millersville fullback, plunged across the final
marker early in the first Canto to give the
Marauders their only touchdown of the day.

Octobgs-E 23. Mansfield at Millersville. Lost.
Again displaying a decided weakness to
combat an aerial attack, the Millersville grid-
ders succumbed to a wide-awake group of
Red and Black pigskin toters from Mansfield.
While this Parents' Day game was played
on an extremely muddy field, there was
plenty of good football to make the shivering
crowd sit up and take notice. Twice Matty
Shimshock hurled the oval into the waiting
arms of Tom Manley, who crossed the goal
unscathed. Outstanding for the locals, was
Frank Thomas. Thomas, an end, hammered
away at the defense for substantial gains.
October 30. Trenton at Millersville. Won.

From the time the opening whistle sounded
until the curtain call, the Marauders scored
almost at will. Playing one of the best games
of his final year at M. S. T. C., Captain Earl
Houtz accounted for two of the touchdowns:
one by way of an eleven-yard run, and the
other when he received a pass from lohnny
Pincavage. Frank Torok and lake Shirk were
responsible for the other two, while Bob Lid-
dell, Shell Ehringer, and lack Cox registered
the four extra points.
