William Martin Elwood Banks
Woy c Fornwolt. Senior Manager
M illersville’s football team was again guided by head coach John Pucillo. Directing the play on the field was head coach Ivan Poss” Stehmon. who was ably assisted by Edward ' Eddie'’ Haller. Wayne Porn wait was the senior manager.
The season began with the brightest outlook in many years for M illersville. Reporting to the veteran coaching staff were no less rhan twenty-five veterans along with a host of new material from the freshman class. In the pre-season drills the Block and Gold looked like a world beater with a big. heavy, rangy, veteran squad. But as chance would hove it Lady Luck forgot to smile on Millers-vilfe with the exception of two times because at the end of the season the victory column read two and the defeat column read five far M illersville.
The outstanding reason for the bad season was the fact that half of the Millersville squad was on the injured list the entire season. The record shows that the scores were close and it was a bad break that spelled defeat for the Black and Gold.
More interest and spirit was displayed this year than has been seen an the campus in many years. Millersville sported a fine cheering squad that kept the fans cheering continually, and much credit must go to this fine organization. The largest crowd that has turnedout ot Millersville in the post four years witnessed the homecoming gome.
In the initial gome of the season, Millersville clashed with Bloomsburg and after a slow start in the first half opened up and won the game by a 19-7 score. Millersville kicked off to Bloomsburg and after an exchange of punts, a pass put the ball on Millersville's 12-yard line. On the next ploy Hucknecht ran 12 yards around end to score. The extra point was good and Bloomsburg led. 7-0. The second and third periods were featured by the punting duel staged by Pincovage and Lehman. Millersville set three touchdowns up with aerials in the fourth quarter. Torok carried the boll on the first two 6 pointers and Wiest tallied the last one. Reese kicked an extra point to moke the score 19-7 in favor of Millersville.
In the second gome the Block ond Gold traveled to Slippery Rock, where they spent the entire first half in being slowly battered up. With the key men of the line out with injuries in the second half, the Rockets taking advantage of the breaks and Millersville's patched up forward wall, ran up a 38-0 score. In this game Millersville out-rushed Slippery Rock 15 first downs to II.
Taking to the road the following week, the Black and Gold invaded Montclair. New Jer-
sey. With Eddie Weist carrying the pigskin, Millersville ron roughshod over the Indions in the first period. In the second period the break of the game occurred. Weist broke a collar bone and from this point on everything was Montclair. The Indians scored a touchdown in every period from this point on. In the closing moments of the game the Black and Gold passing attack began to work and Reese's pass to Smith gave Millersville her 6 points, which fell short of Montclair's 18.
The Stehmanmen ptayed their best game of the year against the Mountaineers of Mansfield, who held the State championship. Mansfield kicked off to Millersville and the Black and Gold
23put on o 55-yard sustained drive that ended with Bernie Reese tossing a pass to Martin in the end zone. In the second period a bad kick set up the first Mansfield score. The remainder of the second period and most of the third period were featured by beautiful kicking by Pin-covage and Mansfield's Locke. A freak break late in the third period spelled defeat for Mil-lersville. A fumbled Millersville ball was caught by Mansfield's right guard. Taylor, who raced 50 yards to score the winning touchdown. Mansfield 12. Millersville 6.
Playing in the mountains of W. Virginia. Millersville won its second game in a 6-0 victory over Shepherd. The game, played on a very muddy field, was featured by punting, neither team's backs could get started on the slippery gridiron. Late in the fourth period. Reese passing to Eshback carried the ball to Shepherd's two, where a pass into the end zone was caught by Pincovage to give Millersville a 6-point margin.
Ploying before the largest crowd of the year, made up of many old grads home for Homecoming. Millersville put on a show of great strength in the first half to lead Shippensburg and then do an about face and collapse in the second half and drop a 20-19 score game.
With eleven seniors playing their last game for Millersville. the badly battered Black and Gold team dropped the final game to Kutztown by a 21-0 score, at Kutztown. In the game Millersville outplayed Kutztown 18 first downs to I I for the Golden Avalanche.

If you will read my letter from a year boclc. you will notice that your dear child has advanced one more step in the direction of his goal. It certainly was swell haunting the froshes" at the beginning of the year. Of course, no one could appreciate their initiation os much as we folks who have so recently advanced from those ranks. One feels so important standing along the sidelines watching the poor kids without having to take part in the demonstration. To be sure. I felt a little depressed when some familiar faces didn't turn up. but the new ones will hove to take their places.
It mokes me feel happy to tell you of certain outstanding students in the line of

extro-curriculor activities. Among the low-makers of Millersville. we find Edith Crockett. Meriel Beochom, William Martin, and Victor Mankin. Valuable players of the gridiron, almost half the boys. Mo. are James Smith. Dean Miller. Vincent Hanley. Donald Shingler, George Klemmer, Walter Waetjen, Louis Michener, Jack Youtzy. William Martin and Edwin Weist. Lyman Reifsnyder and Dean Miller hove taken their share of honors on the basketball court. But, of course, the girls have not been idle, either. Arlene Reath and Dot Kreider did double duty by way of the hockey field and basketball court. From Minnie Gruber's portrayal of Ruby O’Toole in "The Night of January 16th." we wonder if she has missed her calling.
And, Ma. have you read Hilda Adams’ new article on "Our World" in the "Snapper"? Not to mention the poetry by Millicent Jones and the gossip column by Helen Saylor. The Sophs ore really making the headlines not only in the "Snapper," but in assembling material for the "Touchstone."
Tell Pop that his money was well spent when he financed the O. P. O. Dance on the first of December. Everyone agreed that it was the success of the year.
Uh, Ma. enclosed you will find my latest report card (a straight I), and tell Pop that all donations are gratefully accepted.

The main objective of the Student Council is to promote cooperation and friendliness among the student body. To achieve this goal, the Council sponsors the annual Christmas Dance and the weekly Thursday noon dances. They also support many activities and events that occur upon the College Campus.
One of the highlights of the Council’s activities has been the sending of representatives to the second annual meeting of the Cooperative Association of Pennsylvania State Teachers Colleges. The delegates were: Fern Everhart, Vice-President of the Student Council; Betty Brock. Edith M. Crockett, and Dale E. Murphy, newly elected Vice-President of the Association succeeding Chorles N. Meole. This year Chuck represented Millersville at the establishment of a permanent association of Student Governments of Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania, which was held at Penn State. At this conference he was a member of the committee to draw up a constitution for this newly formed association. Later the Council sent a delegation to the New York Conference of the Eastern States Association of Teachers Training Institutions, at which time Dale Murphy was a member of one of the discussion panels.

30THE NINETEEN FORTY TOUCHSTONE
More than a year ago an election was held by the Junior class, which was the official "ground-breaking for the 1940 Touchstone. You are now in a position to view the finished product. If what you see and read in these pages is satisfying and brings bock pleasant memories, the staff will feel that it has indeed erected a fitting monument to the Millersville year of 1939-40.
Little more con be done at this time than to express a word of gratitude to all those who gave of their time and effort in this work. It
is not the designer, the builder, but the other fellow who was given a job to do and did it promptly and to the best of his ability, to whom we owe any success that we may have achieved.
To Mr. Uhrich we would express our sincerest appreciation for his valuable and most interested services, as our adviser. And with the same feeling we extend our "Thanks" to the entire faculty and student body, whose cooperation is proof of a whole-hearted support.WOMEN'S COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

W. C. A.! Yes, initials are always a bit confusing, but W. C. A. stands for the Women’s Community Association, an organization of which the dormitory girls are justly proud. It is to this body of girls that we owe thanks for the efficient planning and managing of the various successful events carried on by the boarding girls. The W. C. A. began the year’s work when you saw the Junior Commissioners helping the freshmen adapt themselves to their new environment and aiding them to become acquainted with the various personalities and rules of the college. Next came "open house ' and the room contest, an event which everyone enjoyed. Then a rummage sale wos sponsored. It proved not only work, but fun for those who took part. With the help of the money gathered from the rummage sole the organization gave teas and purchased electric vac-kits for the girls to clean their rooms. The biggest and most important activity of the W. C. A. come with the preparation for Mother’s Week-End. Special entertainment programs were planned for the benefit of the visiting mothers. That week-end proved a huge success with few dull moments. The lost and most exciting function of this body was move-up doy. when members of each class were moved up to the next class and received the honor of having the privileges of the higher class just reached.
To Miss Lee. Miss Simerson. and Miss Terry, the faculty advisers of W. C. A., we wish to extend our hearty thanks for their guidance and judgment in helping us solve our problems and for all other suggestions they willingly contributed.
32Myriad coiorea pa|amas and oatnrooes converged in a room full of smoke; chairs scraping against the concrete floor; epitaphs floating fhrough the air; a general bustle of activity—all this was a part of a normal M. C. A. meeting. As sounds of. I've a bone to pick,” and 'shut up. ' are heard. Robert's Rules of Procedure are soon forgotten and are sent bock to the book shelf. However, out of this bedlam many improvements have arisen, such as the new lights over the mirrors and the light at the mail boxes.
The star boarders of the left wing also sponsored a basketball league, but seem unable to find adequate means of disposing of their money. How can we spend it?” Let's have a field day.” "Let's have a smoker.” The meetings hove been marked with the thoughts of spending money and of replaying lost fall's football games.
Look at the Kutztown game.” "Well, take the Mansfield game,” "How about the blocking”—and so on into the night.
With the new rules that the meetings shall be compulsory and held in the chapel, the affairs hove taken on o new dignity os normal attire is substituted for the "evening dress" worn formerly. In the future the events will be held the third Wednesday of the month at seven o'clock instead of ten os was the former custom. No motter what the rules, it is certain that for hours and even days afterward, the meetings will be relived and the axes ground in numerous bull-sessions throughout the dorm.

It’s the bright, cheerful, homelike otmosphere that greets the commuting girl as she enters the Traveling Girls' Headquarters. New choirs and lounges the latest publications, attractive decorations and a radio, all a girl could wish for to make her comfortable between classes.
In the seclusion of their rooms these girls relax from the grind, discuss dotes and make plans. In these leisure hours plans for such affairs os a Fashion Show. Barn Dance. Teas and Receptions are made.
This organization each year sponsors a reception for graduates of Lancaster City and County High Schools. However, their work does not stop there. In the fall after many of them enter Millersville it is the Commuting Association that provides for their comfort and welfare.

The inhabitants of the Underworld. contrary to their usual style, spent a reasonably quiet year.
Under the able commanding of Dave Booth and Bernie Reese, the incoming freshmen were properly dominated and subdued without the least signs of revolt. Fortunately all the frosh survived and were eventually absorbed into day student society. Some, however. rather slow in acquiring new habits, were not able to unconsciously litter the floor with paper bags and cigarette butts until at least two or three months after the opening of school. Others acquired the knack quickly and were soon as efficient as upperclassmen.
As usual, football, boseboll and basketball schedules were heartily supported. The details were ably handled by the sports committee headed by Ralph Diller. Played in the old day-student style, the basketball games in particular were hard fought with the victory usually going to the more durable team.
With an official table finally being made available, table tennis also come in for a major shore of attention. During the second semester, the Day Men entered a team in the Class B, City and County Table Tennis League. On the whole, the team made a good showing for itself and finished high in the final standings. Their only jinx seemed to be two young boys and the boys' mother.
As customary, a smoker was held the first semester with plenty of smokes and chocolate milk for all—who came early. The annual Barn Dance, sponsored in conjunction with the Women's Commuting Association, provided a chance to have a good time in old clothes.
Even with less noise and less dirt, the Hole is still not a place conducive to efficient study and the boys are looking forward to that distant time when they will be granted new quarters.

Of the outstanding Literary societies at Millersville. PAGE has had a most successful year. The competent officers have given many of us happy memories to bo remembered and talked over.
As a standing tradition, the society influenced many of our Freshmen to become loyal Pagites. by rushing them off their feet with the dance and reception in the gym. Another of the activities sponsored by the group was the Art Contest, the prizes going to John Fisher, first place; Alva Eshlemon, second place: Leon Mortz, third place. To help the Metropolitan Opera Company in its gool for a million dollars, the Page Society sponsored a drive that included every organization of the school. Each group contributed two dollars. Alfred Thorpe won the tennis tournament, taking the title from "Dutch" Reifsnyder.
One of the most outstanding events of the year was the operetta, "lolanthe"— a Gilbert and Sullivan production: given on the night of the Page anniversary by members of the choir under the direction of Mr. Porter. To put the end to a glorious and prosperous season, the Society bought the R. C. A. Victor machine to be used by the College.
36NORMAL LITERARY SOCIETY
The Norma! Literary Society i$ an active organization on the campus and otters much opportunity to those of its members who are ambitious and interested in activity. "Be Normal Join Normal" is the slogon ail loyal Normalites sling at the Freshmen the beginning of each new college term, for the annual feud betwen the Normal and Page societies is one of the greatest moments of the college year in which we see keen competition ond good sportsmanship among all the students. Rush season adds that certain zest to the atmosphere that is ever present in any normal college of vivacious youth. Here are a few of the dates on the Normal calendar of the post semester that make all those freshmen who joined Normal, proud that they became Normalites:
Sept. 16—Reception for freshmen. Normal presented the "Campus Minstrels."
Oct. 20—Eighty-third Anniversary meeting. Dr. Michael Dorizas spoke on "The Importance of the Balkans in the Present Crisis."

The "Y" offers on opportunity for all students to find friendship in o progressive. Christian atmosphere.
To welcome the Freshmen, the "Y" sponsored a Get-Together Party, a marshmallow toast and sing. A fellowship banquet was held in October for all members. During the Christmas season, a play. "Mistletoe." was presented. Following the annual custom, members went caroling, after which refreshments were served by the dining room fireside.
The Tulip Tea. presented in March, was a huge success, marked by its attractive floral arrangement and excellent musical numbers. Participating in Mothers' Week-End. the play. "Daddy Long Legs," was given. Cabinet members were also busily
engaged in serving the Mothers' breokfosts in bed on Sunday morning. During Holy Week, special early morning services were held. And everyone who helped pick violets for patients in Lancaster hospitals were well rewarded by the pleasure these flowers gave. The closing service of the year, help by the lake, was quite impressive.
At the weekly Wednesday evening meetings and Sunday Vespers, problems interesting Christian students were ably discussed by faculty members, student leaders and guest speakers. At these times movies and displays pertaining to other countries of the world were shown.
Special "Y" tea rooms closed the leading ploy nights of the year.

Vespers by the Lake.' on announcement often heard in the dining room on Sundoy evening, reminds us of many an inspiring session on the campus, bringing us down to a more thoughtful pace in our rushed college existence.
Welcoming and helping every newcomer to get settled in college life so as to give him confidence in his new surroundings, is one of the distinctive ond pleasant duties of the "Y" members.
In the past few years the combined efforts of the "Y. M." and "Y. W." hove produced favorable results in such activities os the Vespers, ond the regular Wednes-day evening meetings, which vary from a pleasant social affair to on informal type
of worship service. Other activities include caroling at Christmas, Freshman Reception Dance in the fall ond the ploy. Daddy Long Legs," presented mainly for the entertainment of the Mothers on their annual college visit. The pre-Easter dawn service is a form of worship most profitable to all who attend in those early morning hours.
In the way of training for leadership a delegation was sent to the Student Christian Movement Conference held at Buck Hill Falls in the Poconos. Devotional services, discussion groups, and sociol activities are the keynote of such conferences to which many of the colleges of eastern Pennsylvania send representatives.
The candy man" about the Science Building and the "dorm’ has become on institution of the school, providing needed nourishment for all. The proceeds provide furnishings for the "Y" reception room use of parents and friends of the students. The addition of the musical chimes to the dining room was a present from our organization.

With the capable leadership of Carl Furniss and the sponsorship of Dr. Dean Dutcher, Sigma Chapter of Phi Sigma Pi enjoyed a prosperous year of activities. In the course of the year a total of twenty-one new members were initiated at two meetings set for that specific purpose. A large amount of time and effort were expended in making these initiations duly impressive.
Of interesting meetings, we think first of the November meeting at which time the brethren were guests in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stayer. At this time Mr. McComsey gave us a brief history of our organization. In December we had the pleosure of listening to Dr. Hull present a talk on Parliamentary Practice. Resulting from this talk was the formation of a group, under the leadership of Dr. Hull, for the study of this subject.
The Fraternity continued the practice of supervising the Tuesday chapel programs. In addition to the services rendered in the chapel the organization seriously considered the possibilities of a chapter of The Future Teachers of America for our Millersville students.
Last, but not by any means least, the Sigma Chapter was highly honored by having one of its faculty members. Mr. McComsey. selected as a Grand Chapter officer. National Counsellor.

Iota Lambda Sigma is the honor fraternity created for the outstanding men in the Industrial Arts Field. The Fraternity's three major objectives ore recognition of professional training, scholarship and the creation and maintenance of a closer fraternal bond between actual and prospective teachers.

• 2THE SNAPPER
Who hos a "Snap" for the "SNAPPER”? This hos been o common expression the post year, os there have been several new columns, in these various categories: "Jest Confusion.” "On the Pan," "Campus Stroller." "Your Rambling Reporter, and the "Campus Kibitzer." What makes these articles unique is the fact that this is the first year that the feature columns have had most heads. Also, this is the first time in the history of the paper that there appeared two different and artistic sports heads. Special notice should be given to the poetic minded and the foreign interested. especially to Hilda Adams praise is merited for her intellectual write-ups on Our World.”
As yet there is no state convention for the student publications of the State Teachers Colleges. Perhaps in the near future we will be sending a delegate or two
to one of these proposed conventions. Editor Murphy attended the Eastern States Association Conference at New York this spring. He was on the college publications panel discussion.
Because of the tremendous worth the series of faculty articles hos been to the students, the idea was continued this year. The editoriols this past year have been such as to make us more mindful of our supporting college activities whole-heartedly. This has been an asset to both faculty ond students.
Through the cooperative spirit of the staff, the paper has improved journalistically ond scholastically. May next year's edition show even greoter progress. Here's to the splendid work achieved by the staff of '40.

Hoving mastered the difficulties of organization. Mu Kappa Mu elevated itself to even greater heights than those already enjoyed in its short life of three years. The club, under the able guidance of its president, William Hetrick, and its energetic adviser. Dr. Boyer, has discussed many interesting topics pertaining to mathematics and to the teaching of mathematics.
Many outstanding goals were set for the club this year. Though it was impossible to attain all the objectives, enough were reached to warrant another successful school year. One of the outstanding issues which has been discussed is whether or not Mu Kappa Mu should become affiliated with The Notional Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Should the club moke this affiliation it will be the first of its kind to
belong to such an organization. In connection with the affiliation the club wos honored by hoving as a guest speaker. Dr. Atherton, State Representative for The Notional Council of Teachers of Mathematics, who very interestingly presented some highlights on the teaching of mathematics. Mr. Biemesderfer. Principal of Manor Township High School, enlightened the mathematicians at a later meeting in an informal discussion on important views pertaining to what the field of mathematics expects from the individual member when he becomes a teacher. In a still later meeting Mr. Ranck, who teaches mathematics at the Manor High School, added his personality to a short talk and open discussion on some of his experiences os a teacher which might help the members to prove to some little fellows that r is a Greek letter that equals 3.14. not something good to eat.
Thus was concluded another successful year. Plans were well laid so that next year will find the club still progressing to greater attainments.
It is not that Mu Kappa Mu has the distinction of being the only club on the campus to serve refreshments at each meeting that mokes it progressive, but the fact that every member is willing to do his share.

Bourdelais. who is an active worker in the industrial arts field gave on address in his usual style. At several meetings motion pictures were shown, presenting subjects of particular interest.
Perhaps the most active individual occasion of the year wos the trip token by Carl Furniss under the sponsorship of the society to Suffern, New York. Ho had on interesting time at The School of Living, a social experiment that may prove to be f great interest to industrial arts teachers.
All the activities of the Society ore not limited to the benefit of is members clone.

Primary Club is of great importance to all Primary Students. They have found
it to be a source of invaluable help. The active members regret that more
Secondary Students do not attend their meetings, because they are o help to all
who attend them.
During the year the Club sponsors speakers who are prominent in various phases in the field of Education.
This year Dr. Psyche Cottell. who is a practicing psychologist in America, conducted an achievement test upon a child of superior intelligence in the Kindergarten.
Dr. Edwin B. Twitmyer. who is prominent in the field of speech, conducted a speech test on a child with defective speech for the benefit of the Club.
The Club tries to select speakers who touch oil phases of Primary work. Mr. Paul Eshelman, Supervisor of Music at Manor Township, spoke on Music in the Grades."
Another speaker whom Primary Club was fortunate in securing was Miss Helen Witmyer. who is an Assistant Director of Elementary Physical Education. Miss Witmyer gave us some very helpful suggestions on Physical Education in the first Three Grodes.
At the close of each year. Primary Club has a banquet. At this banquet the club always tries to have a speaker who is prominent in the field of Education. This year's banquet speaker was Dr. Cecelia B. Stuart, who is Director of Elementary Education in Pennsylvania.
Primary Club has many members but not nearly so many os it should have. Why don't some of you students come around and see how interesting it really is?

Yes. we may be small in numbers, but in spirit we compete with the larger campus organizations.
Our membership is composed largely of those students interested in French and Latin and it is around these two subjects that the theme of our programs center.
Various Roman customs, holidays, marriage and funeral ceremonies and of course Roman mythology with all its intricate intermingling of fact and fancy, all these offer material for the most fascinating research, to say nothing of the vast treasure stores of both Latin and French literature. Although our programs are usually rendered by the club members, an outside speaker is occasionally presented. These speakers hove proved to be both instructive ond entertaining, for not only is the practical side of our field emphasized, but we also profit by the observations of persons of training and experience.
Some of our annual activities, in addition to regular monthly meetings, ore the food soles, our Christmas party, and the annual doggie roost for which, inspired as were the Romons by the coll of the great outdoors, we betake ourselves to some nearby beauty spot.

Roddy Scientific Society has for a number of years been recognized as one of the outstanding organizations on the campus. This year it has not only held that distinctive honor, but has achieved greater heights through its activities.
At the annual initiation meeting in September the science majors were in charge of demonstrations in five fields of science: Astronomy, biology, chemistry, nature study and physics. Following these presentations a test was given and prizes were awarded to the three people having the highest scores. These people were: Ruth Dusman, Florence Klinger and Carl Youtzy.
It was the goal of the program committee, headed by Kenneth Stehman. to bring to the College scientific programs of more value and interest. The first was pre-
60RODDY SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY
sented through the co-operation of the Lancaster Tuberculosis Society and the College's Health Department. It consisted of three reels of motion pictures on this disease. Another program featured Dr. H. Justin Roddy at which time he spoke on the subject. "Vagaries of a Hobbyist." The committee's climaxing presentation was a show in the College Chopel on April 19th by the Bliss Electrical School of Washington, D. C. In addition to these special items the committee was given, through the courtesy of Dr. Steinhauer. the services of the film library.
The second project which Roddy sponsors annually is that of planting flowering bulbs. This year Page Literary Society contributed through the purchose of many new varieties. Under the leadership of Bill Brenner the committee planted more than one thousand new bulbs.
The Society's third project was that of naming the trees and large shrubs on our campus. Chairman Bob Beshore was in charge of the group checking on these names. After this check was completed, both the common and botanical names of each specimen were stamped on tags. Members of Roddy believe that through conspicuous placement of these tags the rare trees and shrubs will be something other than just a name to our students.
In the line of Society business, the big project of the year was revision of the constitution. Under the industrious leadership of Richard Borman the committee changed the membership rules os well as other points. The result was a more modern constitution by which Roddy Scientific Society will be THE campus organization.

With the aid of outside speakers, slides, movies, ond informal discussions, the members of the Travel Club have attempted to satisfy their desire for and interest in traveling.
The activities of the travelers opened In the fall with a breakfast hike that proved a complete success. In December, Mrs. John Pucillo entertained the club at her home in the form of the annual Christmos Party. Although the Valentine blizzard caused us to cancel all our arrangements to attend the Ice Follies at Hershey. we came through with a skating party at the Olympia. The fun we had there, and its success exceeded our wildest expectations. As a finale to a delightful year, the club planned an all day trip which was taken in the spring. Among the places visited were: Valley Forge. duPont, Gettysburg and Philadelphia. And we don't want to forget our week-end at Kepler Lodge. This affair is always the biggest event in the year for Travel Club, os it meets the demands of the girls who want to go places.
The Travel Club has endeavored during this past year to uphold its position as one of the wide-awake campus clubs, and to odd its worth to the affairs of the College.

THE 1940 BASKETBALL SEASON
Millersville's crock coge team gained recognition as Mythical Teachers Champions of Pennsylvania for the fourth straight year during 1939-40. Under the clever guidance of Coach Pucillo and the leadership of Captain George Ehemann. the Black and Gold chalked up fourteen victories while dropping four contests. The Puccillomen went through their Teacher College games undefeated, chalking up eleven straight wins and their fourth straight championship. Playing outside the Teachers ranks. Millersville met some of the country's outstanding teams. In this deportment the Black and Gold won three and dropped four.
The complete record shows that Millersville had one of the best seasons in its history, winning fourteen gomes against four defeats and piling up a total of 946 points while they held their opponents to 768. Much of the credit must be placed on Coach John Pucillo’s shoulders, because he has coached Millersville to five championships, four of them consecutive in the years 1936-40. Credit is also due Captain Honk Ehe-mon who scored 304 points; he was closely followed by Dutch Reifsnyder with 235 points. Other men deserving due credit ore Gene Rutherford. Howard Dotter. Al Dettinger. Bill Mahoney ond Joke Shirk. Richard "Dick' Brenner looked after the squad os Senior Manager.
In the initial gome of the year the Black and Gold bowed to a big La Salle College team in Philadelphia 35-17.

Juniors! Juniors! That we ore. And every junior has one outstanding completed accomplishment to boost of for this year. Namely: That he has withstood the grind of one full semester of playground supervision without becoming a nervous wreck. Yes, it was quite an experience playing leap frog, baseball, Chinese checkers and jumping rope with the younger generation.
Since ployground was a part of our work, we will skip the toilsome side of college life and show you how we spent some of our leisure hours. In October, we felt the first spark of ambition to arrange a social get-together, so we gave you the Junior Diary Dance. The theme of diaries proved quite interesting for the decorations and the well-known La Casa Orchestra furnished the music.

Then ogoin in Moy with the find round-up of college activities for the year, we donned our best bib and tucker to make the Junior Prom something special os is the tradition for all Junior Proms.
Our men in sports of outstanding accomplishment hove been Dan Miller—football: and Ray Schwalm. Bert Sherker ond Ed Wiest—baseball. In dramatics. Ann Buckwalter made medals in “The Night of January 16th.' Student Council has os its Junior representatives Fern Everhart and Dole Murphey. On the Snapper'' Staff, we are represented in the persons of Dale Murphey. Editor-in-Chief. ond Beth Stauffer, assistant editor. On the Touchstone Staff we ore represented by Beth Stauffer. Roy Dungan, John Shorb and Dorothy Little help Mr. Porter in his band. On the whole, our classmates are found in every activity carried on about the college.
The highlight of the year was the election of the 1941 Touchstone heads.
After much consideration. Harvey Stauffer was elected Editor-in-Chief. and John Shorb was elected Business Manager. Congratulations fellows! We knew you'll produce another fine book for the college to be proud of. The next time we see you folks we'll be Sophisticated Seniors, and then before we know it we ll be pedagogues. In concluding, moy we express our appreciation to both Miss Hoffmeier and Dr. Gerhart for their guidance and help during the entire year.
Foil ! The closh of hockey sticks owokens memories of the post year's populor sports. Hockey to start with but King Winter ployed o prank on the 1939 ployers by covering the hockey field with a blanket of snow before the play-off between Juniors and Freshmen could be ployed.
Millersville was hostess to Kutztown, Shippensburg and West Chester at the annual Hockey Ploy Day. As a referee and guest speaker, an All-American Hockey Player was engaged. Each team was represented by some players from each school, so that the girls were ploying with and not ogoinst each other. Our Freshmen girls surprised us to the extent that four of them to one Sophomore made up the winning teom. Members of our Board of Trustees were ardent rooters. The busy doy was climaxed by a tea. at which the usual Millersville hospitality prevailed.
Turning our attention from hockey to basketball, we find some unique names tor the teams that were made up of members from each class. A Junior teom. the No Namers. was the champion. The two most valuable players from each teom were chosen by the members and class played ogoinst class. Here ogam the Freshmen surprised us by coming out on top. Not only were the girls enthused over these two sports, but many came out for volley-ball, archery and badminton.
Next year the Women s Athletic Association will be established. Separate maintenance and the fact that it is not under the present Athletic Association will make the new W. A. A. a form of club. A greater enthusiasm is expected, os there will be a definite goal toward which the girls will be workirtg.
As the Juniors were the most enthusiastic sportsters this year, we are looking forward to greater things from those 1941 Seniors.

9?THE SANDS HAVE SIFTED
Diplomas in hand, our forward steps take us slowly through the silent portal of the stotely chapel that has heard our lost farewell. What now? That is yet to be seen—! ! As the winds, our many paths differ, some to lead toward the goal of fame and success, while others find temporary posts along the way. Only we. the beorers of the torch, can do our years of preparation justice.
But—never let it be said that our doings won't be recorded as history. On the able shoulders of Henry Buckwalter. this senior year, we have placed our problems that in some way showed through to a "silver lining."
In the proper senior style, the Sophisticated Swing opened our social season with the falling of leaves. Odd, but in its place. "Holiday" drew mid-winter cheers credited to the dramatic efforts of ambitious senjor thespians. As a fitting climax, the "Miracle of the Ages" will be witnessed at the Senior Ball.
To our deans. Mrs. Councilman and Mr. Bossier, the entire class offers thanks and grateful appreciation for their guiding hand and genial understanding.

ANDERSON PRETZELSSIGNIFICANT FACT, too obvious to require much elaboration, is the growth of the Campus Publishing Company. From seven to seventy yearbooks in three years, to make us the largest exclusive yearbook publishers in the east.
One way to explain it is to say that Campus in not an engraver, a printer, or any other type of processor, but a service organization well acquainted with the "ins and outs" of yearbooks; co-ordinating all the phases of yearbook planning and processing. Not being a processor, we can cover the field more completely. There is no budget too small or too large in which we are not interested, nor any reproductive process that we cannot supply — letterpress printing, engraving, offset printing, or gravure.
Using these processes to the best advantage, we now make available five different means to a good book. In letterpress printing, “MASTER-PRINT” and “ENGRAV-PRINT." In offset printing, “MASTERTONE" and “VELVETONE"-and in gravure, “REGENTVURE."
All five, from start to finish, are handled alike, receiving the same “Perceptiplan" servicing; specialized handling of your yearbook from the “infant idea” to delivery of a fine finished edition.
All five are Campus books through and through.
These five — differing in price only as they differ in desired effect and budget limitations — possess in full those superiorities in appearance, economy, and general effect that have, in three years, made Campus the leading service organization that it is.
