 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF MILLERSVILLE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE MILLERSVILLE Jhat erue Hands building a nation, hands working to keep that nation strong,—industrious hands, questioning hands, eager hands, comforting hands, helping hands, accomplishing hands,— hands steady and firm, leading and directing, struggling and creating, hands moving over an enrollment sheet, an examination book, a term paper, then hands making lesson plans, correcting endless sheets of yellow paper, molding young lives, finally masculine hands grasping a rifle, gripping the controls of a P-38,—hands in the schoolroom, hands in the home, hands in defense plants, hands behind the guns, hands everywhere, working ceaselessly, hands of America!—these must be our hands!  0 « N the D C a m u 3 MAIN ENTRANCE Lobbying is conventional,LIBRARY Developing the professional.BROOKS HALL Constructs stronger bodies.WICKERSHAM Instructs greater minds.SCIENCE BUILDING Promotes useful skills.EXECUTIVE Dr. Tanger, Mr. Stayer. Mr. McComssy. Mr. Symons DEANS 17DR. LANDIS TANGER President 18After having devoted forty-six years of his life to the teaching profession, President Tanger is retiring. Dr. Landis Tanger was graduated from Millersville State Normal School in 1898, and the Class of 1943 is happy to have such an illustrious alumnus ''re-graduating” with them. The Seniors extend to him their best wishes for his happiness. During his presidency, Millersville State Teachers College has made great progress. In 1929 when President Tanger took charge, the new elementary building was being erected, and in a short time was occupied. The next year this college was chosen to prepare teachers for Industrial Arts; it also became a member of the American Association of Teachers Colleges. The president's residence was built and occupied in the following year. In 1930 the Film Library was started. Among the improvements made within the next few years are the following: the removal of the porches from the front of the main building and the construction of the terraces, the opening up of the reception halls, adding the Day Student and the Library Science Rooms, the installation of smoketowers instead of the old winding stairs on either side of the administration offices, addition of the dining-room foyer, as well as the hallway between the bookroom and the offices. When a water shortage threatened, a well was drilled and an electric pump installed. In 1936 a new heating plant was erected to heat all the new buildings and to provide for expansion of the college. Brooks Hall, the new gymnasium containing a swimming pool and modern equipment, was built. Wickersham Hall was erected and its classrooms and laboratories were later fully furnished. In 1941 the new buildings were occupied, which enabled the college to discontinue the use of Recitation Hall, and to devote the entire Science Build- ing to Art and Industrial Arts. During these years the athletic field was leveled, the mud was cleaned from the lake, concrete walks were laid from Brooks Hall to Wickersham, a tennis court was built near the president's house, and two wings for a library and a recreation room, were added to the Elementary Building. The tangible improvements in the form of new buildings are easily measured, but other phases must not be forgotten. Under Dr. Tanger's capable guidance the sphere of influence of the college has been broadened. and Millersville State Teachers College has made great strides toward new and improved educational goals. When asked what his hope for the future of the College is. Dr. Tanger replied: "I hope that it will be adapted to the needs of war and post-war periods, and that those in charge v ill look forward to the centennial celebration in 1955. Finally, development in thorough mastery in the several fields of learning, a close and happy cooperation between the teachers of college classes and the supervisors of the training school, and a sympathetic relation with the public and its schools, will make Millersville a most outstanding college.” li 1 ...

Setting—Millersville State Teachers College. Characters—Graduating Class of 1943. Synopsis—Four years have passed since we enrolled at Millersville. These years have been eventful in our lives and in history. We have worked and played at college, had joys and sorrows, successes and failures. Let us look backward and review the outstanding events of our college years. Act I Remember the attention we received as “Freshies''? How bashful we were then! Willingly the girls wore green bands around their foreheads, and the boys wore dinks and played “choo-choo.” Patiently we served the upper classmen, and they in turn, as members of a literary society, begged our favor and membership. Then we passed out of the limelight, but not for long. After all, back in '39 Robert Dively, Robert Tompson. Jay Eshbach, and Raymond Bertolet brought fame to the football team and the class of '43. Later in the year, from our ranks emerged the following basketball stars: William Mahoney, Kenneth Herr,ALONG THE WAY David Neff, and Sidney Bitzer. Under the leadership of the class officers—Robert Dively, William Mahoney, Arlene Eshbach, Mercedes Flynn, and Louise Wall—we sponsored one of the year's outstanding dances. Much of the success in this, our first year at Millersville, was due tc the capable guidance of our class advisers, Miss Esther Lenhardt and Dr. Milton Stein-hauer. As Freshmen we certainly set the pace for our future years. Act II Whai a n.ght we spent in Dogpatch our Sophomore year! Daisy Mae and Little Abner, better known as Mary Sheaffer and Norman Sharpless, were there in person. And then there was the added attraction the Skunk Hollow Gang. That was some Hcedown! Alan Holliday headed the class that year and was loyally supported by an efficient staff: Roger Eisenhart, Mercedes Flynn. Norman Sharpless, and Winifred Cooke. We again sponsored a successful and outstanding dance. "Melodie Time.” Act III As Jovial Juniors we chose Larry Olewine to preside and Mary Sheaffer to be his assistant. Tim McCombs recorded the minutes. Leu Lutz balanced the budget, and Eleanor Vogt made history. “Mermaid Serenade,” with Mert Flynn as queen, initiated the social season, and the Orchid Ball was the climax. Norm Sharpless brought fame to the class as editor of the Snapper, and was the only Junior to be mentioned in “Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.” Act IV Scene I Then came our Senior year—the most eventful of all. This time we selected Bill Mahoney to be president, Maurice Hoover to succeed him. Bernice Metzler to write the minutes, Lou Lutz to hold the purse strings, and Bert Schmid to record the history Bill McCain and Louise Wall played the leading roles in the Senior play, “In a House Like This.” Scene II We now come to the last and final scene in our college career. Our number gradually decreased as many of the boys left tc join the armed forces. Dr. Steinhauer, who is now serving in the Navy, was succeeded by Mr. Bailey as our adviser. We have now completed our college education; and so with hearts both sad and bright, we, the Class of 1943, leave the portals of M. S. T. C. and go out into the world to do our share in building a bigger and better America of tomorrow. CLASS OF ’44 CLASS OFFICERSJUNIOR JINGLES President Thomas Entenmann Vice-President Betty LeFever Secretary Margaret Ankrum Treasurer .... Isabelle Huston Advisers Miss Diemer, Mr. Hovis This, the third page in our book of memories, has been one of success, happiness, and growth of intellect. These can be attributed to both our gracious faculty and our friendly classmates. "Do you remember when we tried with zealous care To find an able president to take the chair? And all the other officers v ho ruled so fair? Yes, our faithful class officers piloted our activities and made our class meetings pleasant. "Do you recall how many games of basketball We watched with glee? The Junior dribblers short and tall, Each played a game that never failed to please us all." We can't forget the full share of the thrills we received by contributing champions to all phases in the world of sports. Both boys and girls gave forth their efforts to make the Junior Class one of high standing. "Can you forget productions of Citamard plays, The characters the Junior thespians portrayed, The glorious beginning of their footlight days?” Indeed not. Clark Gables and Hedy Lamarrs were just as numerous in our class as in Hollywood. "Remember all the entertainments that have gone. Successful dances the Junior Class put on— Some swung and jitterbugged while others walked along?" The "Snowball” headed our list of social activities. This affair was an inter-class dance with the Sophomores. Thoughts of not being able to attend the "Snowball" made your blood freeze. Dancing to the hot tunes of Wally Spotts and his orchestra caused you to melt on the spot and left you standing in puddles of memories. "The talents of the Junior Class just soar, The athletes, thespians, and musicians galore. The nightingales with voices that we ail adore—remember?" Of course we recall the members of our class who loaned their voices to Mr. Porter to add to the Choir. Sharp or flat—never. A rustle of music, a tap, tap, tap of the baton, a lifted arm, and the sound of young voices rang through the Chapel. Of course we have representatives in the Orchestra, too. Always willing to lend their talents, this group has added much to make our programs enjoyable. Our school publications were blessed with Junior Walter Winchells. After hours of writing stories and columns the big moment arrived when the articles were published only to find the masterpieces guillotined by the editors. Our reporters got stuck in key holes and were stepped on in riots, but nevertheless, they brought back the news. We lay aside our thoughts of lighter things to cast our attention to something more serious and something that isn't easy to bear. We refer to the many of our Junior boys who were snatched from our midst and given positions which hold uncertain futures. Our boys are represented in all branches of our armed forces, and we are proud of them. Their job is far greater than ours, and they will be as loyal to their country as they were to their school. Let us not forget them, for they are fighting a battle whose end determines whether or not future Junior classes will enjoy the same privileges as we at Mil-lersville. "So hail and farewell to the Junior Class And may these memories n’er depart: When next year as Seniors at M.S.T.C. We'll keep them always in our hearts." 54CLASS OFFICERSSOPHOMORE SNACKS The fall of '42 found us marching across the campus of M.S.T.C. with a more confident air, ready to go forward into the strife of studies and tests. V hile the boys at the front perform their duties to the tune of "Pass the Ammunition," so we on the school front bear in mind the necessity to fulfill the requirements expected of us. Even though many have taken up the call of our country it makes us proud, but sometimes lonesome, for the contributions they offered in the limited time we spent together as a class. The restrict'd ban on pleasure driving did much to cause our social life to decline. While everybody was dreaming of "White Christmases" and other things, the Junior and Sophomore classes decided that they would dream something white in the way of a dance. The outcome was the "Snow Ball," held in Brooks Hall. Although our class roll has diminished, we continue to be represented in all social as well as scholastic activities. In the way of humor we collect credit for the first girl to take a dip in the lake through the ice. Having spent two years in the memorable halls of Millersville, we propose a toast to the continuance of our well-accelerated start under the competent guidance of Mrs. Brene-mann and Mr. Porter. 56CLASS OFFICERSFRESHMAN FANTASY We started out sixty-eight strong, but Uncle Sam stepped in (or was it Hitler?), and now our number has slightly dwindled. But we still have the spirit and no matter how small in number we become we will carry on and keep up the traditions of good old Millers-ville. Freshman rulesl What memories those words bring back to us. Although we hate to admit it, they were fond memories, for at what other time could we look the way we did and still have friends? Everybody knew us by our tarns, armbands, and pins. No powder, rouge, or lipstick could glorify the girls' faces, and wearing hair in pigtails wasn't the most flattering hair-do a person could have. The boys had their share, too. Not many days passed without a few of the fellows being seen wearing some sort of sign around their neck making them stand out like a policeman on the Sahara Desert. Although we used to shudder at the sight of an upper classman wearing an orientation hat, we gradually lost our fears, and now we are able to count them as good friends. It wasn't long until we got into the swing of things, and each of us became familiar with the various college organizations. Our own class became organized under the ad-visorship of Miss Retan and Mr. Shenk. Miss Retan. upon becoming Mrs. Jarecke, left us, and we accepted as our new adviser, Miss Thompson. The big job of conducting the affairs of our class fell into the hands of the class officers whom we elected at our first meeting. George Brenner was elected president; William Rudewick, vice-president; Mary Reisinger. secretary; Jack Crowthers, treasurer; and Lois Hoover, class historian. Time passed quickly for there always seemed to be something to keep us busy. We worked, but we had our share of play, too. It wasn't long before we started making plans for what we wanted to be the highlight of our freshman year. We all worked hard for this occasion and in all respects it was a grand success. We called it the "Dog-patch Hoedown," and just as the name suggests, it was the real thing in barn dances. Plaid shirts and straw hats dominated the scene, and square dancing was a novel treat for everybody. Final exams came and went. Although they held a great fear and worry for most of us, we all managed to survive. After they were over, we could breath a little more easily and began to enter into the new semester's activities. It wasn't long before the Army got seven of our boys, namely, Herman Shiplett, Paul Gravel. Herbert Shindler, Charles Landis. William Gibbons, lames Fahs, and Kenneth Haberling. Although they weren't the first to leave from our class, they comprised the largest group to leave at one time, and we shall miss their good sportsmanship tremendously. Hats off to all of our boys in the armed services! We wish them the best of luck. Our class, although it will perhaps be one of the smallest classes ever to graduate from Millersville, expects to do a lot. We may not have quantity, but we have quality—watch us! President ........

S. T. C. Following that the Council distributed the contents of the treasury to the various campus organizations, set the intramural program into operation, and sponsored free dances. In general, with the help of the faculty advisers, this was the group that looked after the scholastic, financial, and social welfare of the student body. 61THANK YOU ALL” Editcr-in-Chief Assistant Editor Business Manager Thelma McCombs William McCain Mary Sheaffer TOUCHSTONE STAFF EDITORIAL STAFF Adviser —Miss Lenhardt Louise Althouse Norma Aston Alice Barnes Gladys Bartch Jeanne Biemesderf’r Warren Brannon Dorothy Buckwalter Anna Carroll Ethel Cauler Lorna Eshelman John Freiler Dorothy Jane Fulmer Edith Herr Miriam Huber Harold Huhn Reba Keener Virginia Kitch Louise Lutz Gertrude May Bernice Metzler Marian Moyer David Neff Larry Olewine Jay O’Neil Dorothy Pachelbel Jane Poffenberger Luella Reist Bruce Romb9rger Alma Sechrist Julia Taylor Robert Thompson Louise W'all BUSINESS STAFF Adviser Mr. Hovis Warren Brannon Dorothy Buckwalter Virginia Deen Jerry Detweiler John Freiler Clarence Griffiths Jane Hubbell Reba Keener Virginia Kitch Louise Lutz Doris McManus Jeanette Norton Violette Poggy Jeannette Potter Peggy Saylor Pearl Swan Ruth Wagner Christine Walther Best wishes to William Allabach and Stanley Schneck, elected business managers, now serving with the United States' armed forces.SNAPPER The following students, with Miss Marion Spencer as faculty adviser, composed the staff for 1942-43: Warren Brannon Miriam Huber Marian Ranck John Crowther Helen Courtin Bernice Metzler Louise Wall Eruce Rombergerj James O'Neill j Norma Aston Louise Ludwig ( Leon Martz f Editor-in-Chief Associate Editor Business Manager Boys' Sports Editor Girls' Sports Editor Stall Secretary Club Editor Photographers Circulation Manager Art Editors Feature Writers Laura Lee Sharpless, Ann Wolf, Mary Louise Bowman, Jennie Mandrille, Arlene Eshbach, Harriet Osburn, Peggy Saylor.

Because of the decreased enrollment in college for the year, the "Snapper'' was issued only semi-monthly instead of weekly as had been the previous custom. However, the actual working of the editorial board was not hampered very much, excepting by the loss of its Sports Editor, Charles Mowery. near the end of the first semester. Jack Crowther and Helen Courtin have, nevertheless, done a very capable job as sports editors. Besides circulating among the students, faculty, and a few others, the "Snapper" went to each of the boys in the service of the United States. From letters received by the editor it was gathered that these men had just as much joy in getting the publication of their Alma Mater as the staff had in sending it to them. The "Snapper" staff wishes to dedicate this page to Miss Spencer, v ho has done so much for the paper during one of its most trying years. )«Sr he AiilJ ersvi PUy a in rose on ' Saturday nigl md discord free . piny was a melodr model home in fjk omewhere | .. ,hrvn Waller i TJ?! bi I exeTli u '■ an tom b , ,t0 her »« lUib»nd ni I Bui A OeraM W«,0f husband’ • ,h0„, V I ??£ ?.......... ?T ? 1 ! ».» "" t; ■ ■ pert ',hn ,c,w«''lkr itece , ... tojb W )t. 1 .1 ; Ilfa'S+t lilt tf'lv (t0»S | ill'®'1 tnW lh(, y,p ...

Well, I believe—if you put on your strongest "specks" and take a trip down into the realm of Pluto (you remember the underworld, don't you?) you just might be able to see a few males occupying the place. Reason -why don't you know?- the greater part of the male portion of our student body is out serving Uncle Sam. However, the few remaining inhabitants of this once happy haunt are still "carrying on" in the same old way—ping pong, lost lunches, noise, and, of course, a great deal of work. 6tlWould you like to meet a busy group of girls? Right this way—to the Day Student Lounge. Oh yes, that's our busy president, Jeanette Potter. What's all the gaiety? Must be another "little moron" joke. That Shakespeare student over in the corner is Margaret Harsh, the vice-president. Aren't our rooms lovely? Just the place for a game of bridge between classes. And here are Mary Sheaffer, secretary, and Sara Eshleman, treasurer. What do v e do? Well, make yourself cozy, it's quite a story. Let's see— first of all. oh yes. the Freshmen, a little processing to get them accustomed to Millersville living. " 'Cuse please. Hey, down there, turn that radio down; can't hear a thing I’m saying.” Then there was the Focd Sale -mm-m—such luscious food—and the table was so pretty, too. "Is that a candy bar you've got? Nix, not in here. Rrd ants you know." Ch yes, I can't forget the teas. Such charming hostesses, such lovely decorations, and such good food. And then at Christmas we had a wonderful time at the Annual Christmas Banquet in the dining room. Talkl 1 should say so. This is the center of all the latest dispatches; just sit around awhile and you'll catch up on the latest campus gossip. Transportation difficulties, defense jobs, depleted our ranks, but didn't squelch, our spirit. And then came spring, birds, bees, flov ers and the love-bug. Oh, what a lifel WOMEN’S COMMUTING ASSOCIATION 07Men’s COMMUNITY Going along the corridor of the men's dorm one evening. I noticed my footsteps echoing behind me instead of the usual clammering steps of many rushing feet. "Say. where's Mahoney?" I asked. "In the army." "Well, how about Olewine?" "He graduated at semesters. Got a good teaching job." "McCain?" "Called last month. Pappy, too." Whee-e-e-e. "Out in the hall, fellows!" BLACKOUT! "Come on, do as they say. These M. C. A. boys mean business when they assist at these drills." All clear! All clear? It is clear to us that these men are bolstering the morale of our "campus front," continuing in their service to their college, preparing for the service of their country as soldiers and teachers. 68Women’s ASSOCIATIONS We would like you to meet the representatives of our dormitory—a swell group of girls who are both cooperative and congenial. First there is our President, Marian Moyer, who is the executive in general; next our Vice-President, Winifred Cooke, who tries to keep the noise in the dormitory down to the minimum; then our Sacretary, Ann Wolf, who keeps the | minutes and plans our social functions; and last but not least our Treasurer, Marguerite Sampsel, who handles the money and also supervises our efforts to swell the treasury. Representatives from each class, our two faculty advisers, and our Dean, complete the organization. Remember the fun we had preparing for open house? Oh, yes, and we must not forget the tea we had afterwards that was so well attended by the fellows. Then there was Mother's week-end when the Mothers took over our rooms and we took to other quarters. We all enjoyed having them and believe me the dormitory was spotless. There is also much to say about our business dealings. The selling of stationery and the swell card and game night both helped to replenish our treasury. The splendid work of the officers and the grand cooperation of each and every class representative plus the help of both our advisers and our dean have made this year a successful one full of both enjoyment and activity which we will all hold in our memories of Millersville. « »PAGE Let us turn back the pages oi Millersville history some eighty-eight years to May 16, 1855. The Normal School was just one year old at this time, and as yet had no campus organizations to serve the interests and needs of its young people. Those were stern days in the history of this country, and education reflected this sternness even in the character of this society and its extra-curricular activities. Cn May 16. 1855, the Page Literary Society was organized and named after David P. Page, the first principal of a Normal School in New York. Closely identified with the interest of the school, the society early began to afford excellent facilities for students to gain experience in public speaking, reading, debating and'music. Today it sponsors contests in art. music, and athletics, such as the tennis tournaments, which are open to all the students in the college. Occasionally an outside speaker is brought in, but the primary purpose of the society is to give individual members opportunities for self-expression, and to serve its purpose by strictly functioning as a literary society. During the years, Page has sponsored many noted speakers. Among them are Carl Sandburg, Lloyd Douglas, author of "The Magnificent Obsession." and T. A. Daly, the Philadelphia poet. Other outstanding events were the presentation of the Clare Tree Major Company, the opera Ruddigore, and the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, lolanthe. The most recent of the noted speakers to appear under the auspices of the society was Robert Tristam Coffin, the famous poet from Maine. Mr. Coffin v as our speaker at the anniversary meeting, held May 1942. This year Page continued its membership as usual with the annual reception for the incoming freshmen and new students. In keeping our national patriotic theme of saving for defense, Page gave each freshman and new student a defense stamp album with a defense stamp enclosed. The annual Page meeting featured a varied program of student and faculty talent. Miss Esther E. Lenhardt and Mr. Sanders P. McComsey are the faculty advisers. 70LITERARY SOCIETY First Semester OFFICERS Second Semester Harold Huhn President Clyde Cover Mildred Bomberger Vice-President Richard Warfel Sara Eshleman Secretary Jean Keener Alice Barnes Treasurer Alice Barnes Reba Keener Critic Gwendolyn McCombs Jeanne Biemesderler Curator Marion Ranck Edison Engle Curator Luella Reist Curator Mary Jane Irvin 71 NORMAL First Semester Thomas Entenmann Walter Morris Isabelle Huston Helen Courtin Advisers OFFICERS Second Semester President Walter Greismer Vice-President Marguerite Sampsel Secretary Margaret Ankrum Treasurer John Kammerer Mrs. Brenemann, Mr. Hovis LITERARY SOCIETY Under the able leadership of Tom Entenmann and Walter Greismer the Normal Literary Society has completed another successful year. In spite of the loss of many of our members to the armed forces, the society has carried on in the true "Normal spirit." Our first big task this year was the campaign for new members. The initial steps to this goal was the writing of letters to all new students and the helpful attitude of the Normalites to these future members. Our efforts were not in vain for Normal has added nearly fifty new members in the past year. Following this campaign v as the Normal Reception lor the new members held in the old gym. One of the unusual events of this evening was the introduction of the Normal song—"Normal Forever" by the newly organized Normal Quartette. Our next big event was the Eighty-Sixth Aniversary meeting held on October 23. Mr. Guy Eaby, of the class of 1911, officiated. At this meeting the College Choir, under the direction of Mr. Melzer R. Porter and accompanied by Miss Frances Helm, sang several selections. Mrs. Lawrence Smith also rendered two violin solos, accompanied by Mrs. Marion Perry Torchia, class of 1935. The feature of the evening was a very interesting illustrated lecture by Mr. Allan D. Cruickshank, of the Audubon Society, on "Bird Life." At the regular meeting on December 4. a varied program of musical and literary talent was presented. At this time some of our new Freshmen members rendered solos. Kay Walizer gave a very impressive reading on the "Murder of Lidice." and John Kammerer reviewed "Geopolites." by Robert Strasz Hupe. The climax of a successful year was the annual girl-take-boy dance, "Valentine Varieties," held on February 13 in the old gym. Dancing to the strains of Howdy Blankman's orchestra was enjoyed by all who attended. One of the unusual attractions of this gala evening was the selection of • the King of Hearts. To our faculty advisers, Mrs. Mae Brenemann and Mr. Raymond Hovis, we owe much. Their patience and friendly helpfulness have guided us to the end of another successful year for Normal. 73Y.W. C. A. ' OFFICERS President Helen Spahr Vice-President ... Ruth Wagner Secretary Reba Keener Treasurer .. Bertha Wise Advisers Miss Margaret Swift. Miss Emily Snyder The Young Women's Christian Association affords wholesome fellowship and simple worship for those who wish to participate and those who are keenly interested. Usually in the fall, the "Y" is the first organization to extend a welcome to the Freshmen and help them get acquainted through "roasts, treasure hunts, and parties.” Throughout the year the "Y” provides special events for the benefit of its members. The annual banquet, held in October, was heartily enjoyed by all who attended. At Christmas time the combined "Y's” produced a Christmas play and held their annual Christmas caroling, followed by refreshments in the college dining room in all its gay festival decorations and cheery atmosphere. In March, “when spring was around the corner.” the ”Y” sponsored a Flower Tea. During Mother's Week-end the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. produced a play for the visiting mothers. The Y.W.C.A. also served breakfast to the mothers who did not wish to have breakfast earlier in the college dining room. When the violets lifted their lovely heads from the new spring grass, the "Y" girls picked them and took them to patients in Lancaster hospitals. Prior to Easter recess, early morning services were held down by the lake. All who attended gathered much inspiration from the loveliness of the morning and the reverence of the devotions. The events and happenings, as well as the religious fellowship and instruction, were faithfully guided and aided by the advisers, Miss Snyder and Miss Sv ift. 74Y. M. C. A. OFFICERS President Vice-President Gerald Detwiler Walter Morris Secretary- Treasurer William Englehart Vance Snyder The Y.M.C.A. at Millersville offers the students a variety of religious, social, and physical activities. These activities begin early in August when letters of welcome and friendship are sent out to all new students. To help these new students become acquainted the combined ”Y's" hold a doggie roast during the first week of school. This is only the beginning—the social activities for the year consist of parties, game nights, swimming parties, plays and many other similar activities. The Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W.C.A. combine to hold two weekly meetings. The Sunday meeting is in the form of a vesper service, while the Wednesday meeting may be of a religious or an educational nature. The students call on personal talents or various outside speakers to carry on these meetings. The Y.M.C.A. provides a well-furnished room where all students are privileged to go to relax, read, or to entertain their parents or friends. This room is provided with the latest magazines and a Sunday newspaper. The Y.M.C.A. offers the facilities of this room to any of the many campus organizations desiring a meeting place. With this varied program the Y.M.C.A. tries to instill a spirit of friendship, fellowship, and reverence which will long be remembered. 75IOTA LAMBDA SIGMA Iota Lambda Sigma Fraternity is a National Proiessional Education Fraternity. “Iota'' chapter is one of the thirteen chapters established throughout the country to recognize high scholarship in this field, and the creation and maintaining of a closer fraternal bond between the actual and prospective teachers, supervisors, and directors in this field. Due to war conditions "lota” suffered the loss of its adviser, Mr. Uhrich, and several outstanding members. At the annual fall initiation and banquet. Mr. Kauffman and Mr. Hovis became! the new advisers for the fraternity. Four new men were also initiated into the fraternity at this time. Several men are eligible to become members at the spring initiation and banquet. With the help of these capable advisers the fraternity soon began making rapid advances. On November 15 the fraternity presented the school v ith a new American flag for the chapel. Another highlight of the year was Dr. Boyer’s illustrated lecture, showing the relationship between mathematics and art. As one of the outstanding social events of the year "Iota," together with Phi Sigma Pi. and Delta Phi Eta Sorority, sponsored a dinner dance. These are a few of the activities carried on by Iota Lambda Sigma Fraternity for this school year. We are looking toward the future with confidence that "Iota" will remain as a leading organization on the campus, benefiting both the school and the members of the fraternity. 70 President OFFICERS Philip Douglas Vice-President John Freiler Sec.-Treasurer Gerald Detwiler Historian William McCain Advisers Raymond Hovis, Henry Kauffman PHI SIGMA PI President Vice-President Secretary Assistant Secretary Treasurer Sergeant-at-Arms Historian Sponsor OFFICERS Lav rence Clewine John Freiler (second semester) William Allabach Warren Brannon ....................Walter Morris Robert Rill Vance Snyder (second semester) Gerald Detwiler Harold Huhn Dr. Justus Hull SIGMA CHAPTER Phi Sigma Pi Fraternity is a national educational fraternity for men in teacher training institutions. The fraternity's major objectives are the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge, the application of professional skill in promoting the race, and the fostering of fraternal fellowship within its ranks. Under the capable leadership of Lawrence Olewine and John Freiler and the sponsorship of Dr. Justus Miles Hull, Sigma Chapter, Phi Sigma Pi. enjoyed a rather successful year, taking into consideration the number of men who left for service in the armed forces. During the year six new members were initiated. Two banquets were held this term, by the members in Hill's College Tea Room. Aftsr the first of these a very impressive informal initiation was held. The Dining Room Foyer served as the ritual room. Members of the fraternity, both faculty and student, composed the degree team. At one meeting of the year Mr. Shenk, faculty member, presented his ever popular lecture and demonstration on hypnotism. This entertainment was interrupted, however, by the shrill sound of the blackout siren. An outstanding project of the year was a Phi Sigma Pi news letter edited by the chapter brothers and sent to the members in the service. Campus gossip, news, and favorite jokes were included in this publication. 78One of the organizations on the campus vital to our war effort. Mu Kappa Mu. presents an opportunity to discuss various phases of mathematical practices and problems. Although losing many members and officers because of the war. the club has gained in prestige and attendance. Contrary to the usual custom, girls have been admitted this year. Three of our officers left at semesters, Leon Martz. president; Robert Brown, vice-president, and Dalton Landis, treasurer. The first two entered the armed forces and the third was graduated. In this highly technical war, mathematics plays an all-important part. One of the highlights of the meetings was a talk by Dr. Boyer on the uses and applications of mathematics in the Army and Navy. He illustrated his talk by showing many of the typical problems one meets in gunnery, navigation and the like. Other interesting meetings are typified by presentation of senior membership papers and a talk enumerating and explaining our mathematics library. Many of our members are either in the Army, Navy, or Air Corps Reserve, and the realization that math will constitute a large part of their training has caused an increased interest in the subject. Those who cannot serve in the armed forces play a vital part in the national program by assuming positions vacated by teachers who joined the services. All this has aided in our purpose of bringing about an intensified consideration of mathematics. President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer OFFICERS Donald McGlathery .................

Though still in its infancy, the sorority has managed to establish itself this year as a flourishing organization on the campus. Only junior and Senior girls who have an average of 2.5 are eligible for membership. After a student has attained the required average, she is judged according to her character, service, and qualities of leadership. Delta Phi Eta has been doing its part in war work, too, by selling war stamps on chapel days. Another project which was started this year was the arrangement of bulletin boards in some logical order. At one very inspiring meeting this year, Mrs. Tanger talked to the group about former Millersville graduates who have become outstanding in their fields. We discovered that Millersville can proudly claim famous people from nearly every walk of life. Mrs. Tanger did extensive research on her subject, and showed us letters and photographs from the people about whom she spoke. In February, Miss June Smith, who helped organize the sorority, entertained the Delta Phi Eta members at a dinner party in her home. The year of 1942 moved smoothly under the helpful guidance of Miss Powell and the following officers: President ..................................

There was great interest shown in the nursery school which was the main project of the club. This work was started with the loyal support of the elementary school advisers. The aim of our project was to help the war effort by keeping the pre-school children so the mothers would have more leisure time or could help to take a more active part in this work. Children ranging in age from tiny tots to three and one-half years or four years attended the nursery school, which was open every Thursday afternoon from one o'clock to five-thirty o'clock. While at the school the children played games, had stories read to them, had a rest period, and were served orange juice. However, because of the smallpox epidemic the nursery school was disbanded. During our monthly meetings the club had the following speakers Miss Davis gave a demonstration and talk on the "Correct Way of Bathing and Dressing a Baby," and Miss Caton's topic was on the "Feeding of Babies." The club has been an active member of the "Association for Childhood Education." As a member of this association, the club receives literature monthly and this is put in the library for general reading.

Dorothy Jane Fulmer George Caley Citamard began a busy year by discovering fourteen neophytes with an ability for dramatics and a desire to perform. These were informally received into our folds at the annual Citamard Party held November 6, 1942. The regular trip to Hedgerow Theatre had to be cancelled for reasons we all know. Our club meetings, which are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month 'round about 4:15, were livened up by several one-act plays. Ther first, an original by our own treasurer, was called "Wait.'' We will long remember the second, "Sit Down to Supper," in which Isabelle Houston so skillfully played the gruff, old game warden. Two of the others were "Let’s Be Cuckoo" and "The Bird on Nellie's Hat." 82INDUSTRIAL ART THEATRE CLUB Play Night carne on April 9. 1943, when th© two best plays of the year were given in competition. A danc© in the rickety, old gym followed. Lest we forget February 6. 1943. was the date "The Torchbearers" led us through a riotous evening. It was great fun for cast and audience alike. Here we might pause to thank Miss Lenhardt for her kind guidance and the Theatre Arts boys for their willing staging of all our productions. We appreciate your support. With that, the curtain falls to rise again next fall. On what new scenes and with what new actors wo cannot tell, but of one thing we are certain— it will go up againl S3The governing body of the choir, orchestra and the band is the Music Committee. It consists of representatives from these three organizations. Tom Entemann is the capable chairman, with Ruth Wagner as the efficient Secretary-Treasurer. Other members are Margie Ankrum, Frances Helm, Robert Barrow, and Melzer R. Porter, adviser.

Porter, assisted by Frances Helm at the piano, the college choir has successfully completed another year's engagements. At the annual Christmas concert on December 13, a wide variety of traditional and modern selections was presented to an appreciative audience of students and friends. Again, at the Normal Literary Society's anniversary program, the choir was one of the features of the evening. On January 28, the Board of School Directors was entertained during its morning and afternoon sessions by several religious and secular numbers sung by this versatile choir. In addition to these varied activities, the choir has greatly added to the Tuesday chapel programs by leading the singing and presenting familiar anthems. Of course, in order to fulfill all of these duties, the choir has to practice diligently, and members are to be congratulated upon their faithful attendance at rehearsals and performances. v- THE BAND THE ORCHESTRA SPEECH CLUB OFFICERS OF SPEECH CHOIR President Vice-President Secretary-T reasurer Historian Director........... Betty Utz George Caley Marjorie Rambo Kay Walizer Esther E. Lenhardt '"Mumbo-Jumbo will hoo doo you.” "Spare-the-rod! spile the child!” These are the echoes that iloat from room thirteen in Wickersham. The blending of the light, medium, and dark voices lends a new interpretation to poetry, not only for those who participate, but also for the audience. In previous years, the Speech Choir rendered variety programs, ballads, and a full-length presentation of Hiawatha. These were given at high schools in our surrounding communities and in our college chapel for Mothers" Weekend. This year, the group gathered material for a pageant of the history of the Speech Choir in Literature. An introduction together with a group of illustrations. was compiled for each period. These, woven together, presented the complete history. As we are pioneers in this particular field, we hope to help spread this movement to more people. It is our endeavor to stimulate in others a new interest and appreciation for poetry and speech work. Thanks to Miss Lenhardt for her ever faithful guidance! 87INDUSTRIAL ARTS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer OFFICERS FOR 1942-43 Sydney Bitzer Roger Eisenhart James O'Neill Clarence Griffith Operating under the strain of a greatly reduced membership enrollment, due to conditions caused by the war, the society has nevertheless carried on under the able sponsorship of our Industrial Arts faculty advisers. Dr. Csburn, Mr. Kauffman, and Mr. Shenk. The society's year of activity began with an interesting inter-member discussion of summer jobs that had been recently completed by the club members. Our second milestone of the year was a clever and entertaining talk given to us by our former Industrial Arts Director, Mr. E. E. Howard, on the relation of Industrial Arts to industry with a few of E. E.'s humorous jokes thrown in for good measure. Again our activity machine moved on to include 88SOCIETY a meeting v hich featured Mr. Kauffman with his witty speaking and interesting collection of pewterware. Mr. Kauffman brought with him many of his fine pieces and gave us inside tips on the identification and quality of pewter. At our next meeting we were privileged to have Mr. Uhrich who offered us a very informative talk closely allied with the war effort, namely, Gearing of the Public School to the War Effort. Considering the difficulties that our school has had to undergo and the privileges we have relinquished, we may still say that our society has enjoyed an active and interesting year, let's hope that next year will bring an equally successful program. S9 I b=bcYes. the Rural Club gained a great deal of interesting and very valuable information this year even though gas was rationed. Miss June Smith, former Kindergarten Supervisor here, and who now is Supervisor of Special Education in Lancaster County, gave us an insight concerning her observations of people in the teaching profession and the Special Education Program. Since this club is organized for the primary purpose of aiding prospective teachers in studying and solving practical rural problems, we have striven to execute this purpose by means of various panel discussions at our monthly meetings. Some of these include the most modern methods and procsdures to be used in a rural school. With Mr. Hovis as our able guide, we had been very successful in carrying out our aims for the year. Everyone seemed gratified with the knowledge they had obtained and felt as though they v ill be much better prepared to meet rural problems. Then, too. Rural Club has also another advantageous and likeable side. Food—good and plenty of it—seems to be a friend to all of us. Among these highlights, there was the food at the Hallowe’en party in October, and above all, the very generous supply at the annual outing. This club's activities were topped by a hike and an outing in May when everyone had a "super-duper” time.

Ann Wolf Kathryn Schenck Esther Boyd Miss Ethel Thomson “Golly, it's mighty dark!” "Brrr, it's cold.” “Did everyone get up?” "I certainly hope we didn't forget anything." You hear these same comments every time the Travel Club has a breakfast hike, a favorite pastime of the girls belonging to the club. Due to transportation difficulties the club didn't travel much, but they made up for it by giving parties and breakfast hikes. In February, the girls were given a description of the routine duties of a WAAC by Lieutenant Richardson of the Woman's Army Auxiliary Corps. This meeting was open to all the girls who were interested. Lieutenant Richardson s talk was very educational a d appreciated by all who attended. In the spring, the club went bowling. This being a favorite sport of quite a few of the girls, they naturally had fun trying to beat the others and laughing at the beginners. Mrs. Walter Jareche, our Miss Retan, acted as adviser to the club until she left in January. The girls enjoyed having her as their adviser and certainly regretted to see her leave. Miss Thomson, who took over all Miss Retan's work, is now adviser to the club.

The English Club, true to form, sponsored the appearance of Robert Frost, one of America's most famous poets. Dr. Frost especially endeared himself to his audience with his delightful side remarks—little conversations with himself (thrown in free of charge). Because of the lack of transportation facilities, the program committee decided to use the talents of some "prophets without honor" on our own campus. During the year the Club presented a variety of programs. Mrs. Tanger read some of her favorite poetry in her charming way; Dr. Gerhart held us enthralled with his lecture on his hobby, stamp collecting. EspeciallyCLUB interesting was his collection of Japanese stamps. (By the way, that collection is for sale. Anyone bid $1200?) The Christmas Party found us all blindly groping and puffing to blow out the elusive candles. Next the Club climbed aboard the Magic Carpet -it needed no oil or tires--piloted by Miss Snyder. We visited England and Scotland, paying a special visit to the home of Sir Walter Scott. Club members contributed to the meelings by attending, by singing, by reading poetry or giving recitations, by playing musical instruments, and by enjoying the refreshments!

In the fall, the lassies played hockey. If one were near a hockey game, he would hear the crack of the hockey stick, and see the gleam of the white ball as it streaked across the field. While the girls are busy with hockey, the boys try their hand at intramural football. The freshmen team is the strongest and gives the others a hearty scrap. The seniors are well in the race with the freshmen, but their old age and lack of manpower cause them to fall from first to second place. But didn't you have fun, boys? Whistles blowing and horns tooting! It's time for basketball. Come on gals let's shoot that old ball into the basket! Watch yourselves Juniors, the Seniors are on your tail, and they nearly plucked your cock feathers in that last game. But all's fair in a basket-BASKETBALL ball gam©. W© had a very good tim©. Thanks to all th© girls who participated and I hope you get your awards someday. The boys’ basketball teams surely played a hot tournament until the armed forces stole their manpower and teams. What they played they played hard and had an excellent time. Hoist that net it's time for volleyball. Boy listen to that noise! It sounds like "wimmin". It’s coming from the gym. What’s going on over there? It’s girls' volleyball! Gee. aren't we the slick jakes? We run five volley ball games on Mondays and Wednesdays and we are finished by 5:15. Our manager surely is doing her job faithfully and we do have very good referees, timekeepers, and score-keepers. You can’t pull the wool over their eyes. My, some people surely can squeal and make a noise. Listen to ’em, will 'ya? Along with our volleyball tournament, we are running a ping-pong tournament. There surely is a line-up and the gal who wins is going to have a scrappy old time getting there. More power to you, who ever you are. Let's hear the click of that ball and the whack of that paddle. Come on gals serve that ball. What about softball? Are we going to have four teams? Oh. come on we must! It’s a favorite sport. All we need is a ball, bat and players. Who will it be—Freshmen, Sophomores. Juniors or Seniors? Do we have time for badminton and shuf-fleboard? Oh come on let's try. Don't say there is not enough to do. Come on rustle your bones, pack up your kinks and squelch your winks long enough to have a nice old time in intramural sports. We have a committee which functions, advisers who stand by us and guide us; we have equipment and space, the time after school, and an award for each one who succeeds in the race; we’ll have plenty of fun if you all will come and take part in our intramural program which is going someplace. Yes, we can have more if there is a demand for it. Not only do we need mental work, but physical as well. So dress up in your shorts and join in our sports; you may not always win. but in four years you earn a pin. 100 £ff w ?y • .mmunc. | yt } 0 £y . . . aiming high INTRAMURAL ... happy reflections. . . rolling on the green ACTIVITIES ... volleying for victoryShelley Lancaster, Pennsylvania » « Your College Photographer 100COMPLIMENTS L.
