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."

Huqqie shows 'em how. 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. The weaker sex are also strongly upholding their stand in athletics.

Nancy Meiskey, Marilyn Crook, Dorothy Brubaker, Mary Libby Reed, and Ruth Nestleroth are doing excellent work in representing us. ,- 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. stone.

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.

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 Sprouts Bob stands by. 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.

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.

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.

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. 50 , N ,ng , , Www. ..

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.

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. 'cl 52 MENS COMMUTTNG ASSOCIATION OFFICERS President ,.........,.........,.,......................

I ames Adams 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. t L 53 .Tf1'liIif .tfffiif "in" 'II' ' I" ' I T Y ' Peeping into Page's Diary-Page gave a warm welcome to all Freshmen -sent each one a letter brimming full of Page and her Virtues. 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. OFFICERS Second Semester: First Semester: President ,........... .,............,....

Cf venerable old age, the Normal Literary Society celebrated its eighty- first anniversary. This celebration ushered in the annual Home-coming Week- end by presenting Dr. Arthur D. Cfraett, who delivered the address, "Claiming Our Heritage." Ardent music lovers were captivated by the baritone, Mr. Robert Tilberg, whom Normal sponsored at a chapel program this year. Normal's climax for the year was the Normal girl-take-boy "Sweetheart Specialty Dance," held during the season when Cupid shot his arrows. Book-lovers turn their steps to the right alcove of the library, Where, by the accumulation of new volumes each year, the Normal Literary Society boasts proudly of its fine collection of scholarly works.

"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. 56 l l ' f-N-f1.' 773. Q.-ff cgi fi THE Y. M. C.

W alter Spory 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. 57 PI-II SIGMA PI OFFICERS .A,:..4.5, President .........,..............,.........

W illiam Bolger 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.

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.

G1 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.

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.

Day student rooms and boarding student rooms alike etfuse, on that day, the usual rabble which is the outcome ot the printed word of the college sheet. Representing the spirit and ideas of the college, "The Snapper" plays its part in the lite ot every student by inform- ing him about college lite-its ups and clownsy also, its low downs. This year "The Snapper" improved with the addition ot several feature columns under the heading ot Book Browsing Club, Scents of Nonsense, and Cinema Views and Previews. A full page was devoted to sports, and several contests were carried on by that department. Pictures illustrating the news, and photos of popular campus students were other major features. Cartoons also added interest and humor to the paper. Carrying on the reform started by lohn Ursprung in '37, Editor Bable pushed his weekly a few notches higher-and k next year's "Snapper" will be even from the c better. 55 urrent outloo RCDDDY OFFICERS First Semester: President .,........ ,.......

Mr. Frederick Beckrnyer GG SCIENTIFIC SCCIETY 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. 67 STUDENT CCUNCIL , OFFICERS ..

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 Council. 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.

This world cruise was made possible through the lectures of experienced travellers, who had already "been places and clone things."

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.

Gladys Reclcay Faculty Adviser ........,. Miss Emily Snyder 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. tl lt 73 INDUSTRIAL ARTS .

But look, what's this? 74 INDUSTRIAL ARTS SGCHETY 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.

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.

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.

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. MEMBERS Freshmen: Dan Miller and Charles Tomporowski.

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. Lost. 44-45. 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. Won. 34-32. 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- ville, 34-32. George gets the tap-as usual. February 4, 1938. Kutztown at Lancaster. Won. 30-l6. 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 the fray. 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. 51-43. 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.

Coaches lntrieri and Pucillo, the Millersville 20-6. Marauders were successful in winning three of their seven scheduled games. While this is less than fifty per cent, statistics show that the Black and Gold gridmen outscored their opponents, 61-59. Those lads, who will be lost to the squad next year because of graduation are: Charles, Ehringer, Houtz, lohnson, Snyder, Walker and Warner. While this naturally will be a big loss to the tearn, the coaching staff will have an experienced group of jun- iors and sophomores to depend upon, plus Unable to cope with the strong aerial at- tack displayed by the Bloornsburg "huskies," the Marauders went down in defeat in their initial grid fracas of 1937. Two fumbles by Black and Gold carriers paved the way for 12 of the twenty points scored against them. Millersville's lone touchdown was scored late in the fourth period on a twelve-yard run by Norvin Whitmore, a substitute back, after Ioe Hogentogler had recovered a Bloomsburg fumble. those freshmen who will register in Sep- ternber. Following is a brief resume of each game on the 1937 card: The captain's booting form. March, march on clown- Take that man- Beat it out- October 16. Montclair at Montclair. Won. 7-6. 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. It was Bill Warner's accurate toe that gave He looked before he leaped. By a shoestrir1g-- Alma Mater. Nice and easy- the Millersville club their one point margin of victory as he kicked the extra tally. Mont- clair's score was registered by fullback Ioe Hughes on a line buck. 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. 28-O. The Sunday paper of October 31 carried sports page headlines as follows: "Millers- ville Teachers Topple Trenton 28 to O Result" .. .L E lack Cox Iohn Aderhold Frank Thomas George Grove Frank Torok Norvin Whitmore Back Center Back Guard Back Back ' ,mag ji, . - ls - Iohn Pincavage Elwood Smith Iarnes Vermeychuk Donald Shock Henry Counsman Paul Miller Back End Guard -"Countians Play Heads-Up Ball, Display Power." And that really tells the story. 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. November 6. Shippensburg at Millersville. Lost. 7-0. Although they were inspired by a Home- coming Day crowd of some 1000 "grads" and Back Guard Tackle the extra point. For the Marauders, Don Shock was the most impressive. Playing at the quarterback post, Shock made several safety tackles which prevented the Raiders from scoring further. November l3. Wilson at Wilson. Won. 20-6. invading the ranks of the Wilson Teachers in Washington, D. C.p the lntrieri coached aggregation performed before a fair-sized Wilson Homecoming Day crowd with a 20-6 victory as the outcome.

Three times did the Black and Gold boys halt the march of the visiting gridders inside their own l5-yard marker. In the second period, however, Iohnny Bay's pass to Frank Mastro- cola was completed and the Upstaters were successful in scoring both the touchdown and Bing at work- A bit of necking- They didn't- Look out, lake. Team, team, team- ing into the pay dirty in the third period as Bill Whitmore plunged through the Owl's line from the six-yard marker: and again in the last canto-this time with the honors going to lack Cox on an eight-yard run. Bill Warner and Shell Ehringer added the two extra points via the boot. November 20. Kutztown at Kutztown. Lost. 7-O. Bringing their football season to a close the Millersville Teachers dropped a "heart- breaker" to the Golden Avalanche of Kutz- town when the latter scored in the last few minutes of the final quarter via the air route. rr AV. ,. i.,, No good. Rising action. Oh, for a slingrshot. A-blaze with spirit. Knock it down. After playing heads-up football for three full quarters, the Marauders fumbled and the MacGovern-men were quick to recover. Beauty DeMatteo crossed the line into the scoring zone after he had received a pass from Bodnarilc. The point after touchdown was booted by DeMatteo. lack Cox, by virtue of several long runs, along with Frank Thomas, outstanding in the tackling depart- ment, were out in front for the locals.
