 THE 1945 PRESENTED BY THE SENIOR CLASS STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE MILLERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA 1 I Dedication ★ It is not easy for us, the class of 1945. to forget the events which have startled the world since our entrance into Millersville. On that never-to-be-forgotten date, December 8. 1941. a Freshman class of about 75 sat in the chapel with the rest of the student body, and heard the President of the United States ask Congress for a declaration of war. Then we could see only dimly what the future held. But as the boys sitting next to us in classes began to leave, the seriousness of the situation impressed us more and more. Now. as we look backwards from 1945. we realize how the war has changed our college years, and what a different life those 23 boys who left to serve our country have led. It is difficult to adequately express our appreciation and loyalty to them for what they have done, but as an indication of our sincerity, the class of 1945 proudly dedicates this book to its former members now serving in the Armed Services of the United States.

Robert Thro-Introduction For the class of 1945, Millersville has presented three and four years that arc full of memories. Pictures of roommates and friends, favorite faculty members and classes, favorite campus spots and activities, practice teaching, parties and dances, are fresh in our minds. But in the next year and the next, they may grow dimmer. The Touchstone has been created with that in mind, and its aim is to bring back those memories. So. as you look through the book, just sit back and remember................. i FourGIRLS' DORMITORY AND RECEPTION HALL Source of memories of good times, great expectations, and congenial living.

TwelveI ThirteenSeniors MARIAN RANCK President MARY EBY Treasurer MARGARET STAUFFER Secretary ★ ' It's not so long now," we thought when we started our Senior year last fall. And it has not been long. Practice teaching, school activities and responsibilities have made this time fly quickly, and have brought us to the goal we set four years ago. Even though those years have been unnatural in many respects, we have all managed to have a good time. This year has been one of the best. Remember the Senior play. ''Love's Labour's Lost”? It is difficult to forget the unusual group of men who performed so nobly, the lovely princess and her court, and the fools with their wise sayings. Shakespeare might have turned a little in his grave, until he remembered that men used to play women's parts, and who is to say which is more proper? Then we repeated our old standby, a rummage sale, to raise a little more money. This time we traveled to Columbia and came back with a good profit. There still was not enough cash for a fancy party, though, so we decided to go to the other extreme for our entertainment. As a result, that hair-raising shindig. "The Clod-Hop.” provided the most fun and exercise in one evening that Millersville had seen for a long time. Who cared whether we knew how to do square dances or not! Our own versions were more fun. anyhow. What a mix-up there was when we tried to do the ones the caller called out. And they looked so easy! Cider and gingersnaps and apples supplied the very much needed refreshments. Second semester was a busy one as we tried to draw all our activities to a close. Caps and gowns, invitations, picnics, and farewell parties in addition to term papers and examinations, all led up to the grand climax. Commencement.

The number was a mere twenty-nine, but quality made up for quantity. Election of officers resulted in an all female quartet being chosen to carry the responsibility of making the Junior year outstanding. After a great deal of discussion and debate we came forth with the decision to hold a dance on January 13. 1945, in the old gym. In keeping with the other social functions of the year, the "Frosty Frolic was a strictly informal affair, with tickets at a modest price, and plenty of homemade cake, fudge, popcorn, pretzels, and soft drinks. Our St. Valentine’s Day food sale went straight to the hearts and stomachs of everyone. The tables in the outside foyer groaned tinder the weight of the delicious food donated by the students. The hungry line of students and teachers soon relieved the strain, however, and the Juniors cleared a nice profit. Throughout the year our class contributed to the activities, clubs, and functions of Millersville. It was the Junior girls" basketball team.

Although there have been no official projects or parties, we have poured our energy into school activities. Sports, plays, orchestra, choir, clubs, and playground all claim the Sophomore talents. Of course, we cannot forget to mention the very serious business of studying, too! Our class has a good representation on the Dean’s list. The forty-six freshmen who started out last year have been scattered quite a bit. Several are in a hurry to finish and. through the accelerated course, we have lost twelve to the Juniors. A few of our classmates heeded the call "Go west, young man." and transferred to other schools. The Marines. Navy, and Waves have also taken a number of our members, though we hope only for the duration. Those who are left have carried on in fine style. In the early spring we got together with the Freshmen and came out with an informal party enjoyed by the entire school. Low funds and "canned" music didn’t spoil the fun at that night club, and proved that it is not always the expense and show that make a good time. Here’s hoping we can have more such affairs in the future. ThirtyThirty-oneFreshman Class ★ ★ After donning our tarns and dinks and pulling them properly down to our noses, we had our long-awaited introduction to college life. The weather's reception was a damp and depressing one. hut not that of the Orientation Committee, for we plunged right into rules and regulations. Red lips stayed in the tubes, our hair assumed its natural straightness, and our noses reflected the rarely seen sun. Bow tics bobbed up and down, and our dinks were lifted with a polite "good morning." when we chanced to pass a fair or otherwise upperclassman. Three times a week we had our lineups for the entertainment of the whole school, in which we showed our hitherto unknown talents. We gave up our seats on the bus and gave up our sleep at night when someone yelled "line up. But all of this went toward adapting us to the environment we are to experience the next four years. The class had its first meeting with our advisors. Mrs. Councilman and Dr. Dutcher. and promptly organized. Meanwhile, our members began taking part in the school's activities and we were well represented in all phases of it. The first social affair which helped to erase the last traces of greenness and to greet our new freshmen was the "Turn Over a New Leaf" party. We have turned over many new leaves since, so watch us travel upward through the classes! BETTY EDWARDS Vice President EDWARD DONOHUE President MARY T.

Was it really a worthwhile undertaking? Nearly everyone seemed to think that it was. judging from the response to subscriptions, so with the backings of the student body, the yearbook was launched. The result has been the work of many; a staff that has worked long and hard, our capable advisors. Mr. Porter and Mrs. Smith, who gave very timely advice concerning finances and effective writing, and you. the students who have given your support in your interest and ready co-operation. We have tried to make this 1945 Touchstone one that will recall Millersville and the part you played in her activities, whenever you turn the pages. We sincerely hope that we have succeeded. ★ ★ ★ Editorial staff Lorna Eshlcmnn Osetta Groff Lois Landis Jean Nash Judith Osburn Evelyn Stoner Art staff Jack Loose Norma Byerly Florence Marklcy Business staff Elaine Duffy Beth Frost Marion Hays Janet Heilman Josephine Imbodcn Marion Ledgard Sara Weinhold Typing staff Mary Fulginiti Olga Link Doris Little Virginia Webster ★ STAFF Editor-in-chief...........

PEGGY JACKSON ★ Thirty-serf"1Snapper The 1944-45 war edition of the SNAPPER rolled off the press semimonthly. upholding the precedents established in normal times when the enrollment was tip-top. Even with fewer photographs and a cheaper grade of paper, a small but co-operative staff produced a publication that covered the news, provided entertainment and information in feature articles, and attempted to promote the general welfare of the school through editorials. The year’s innovations of which the staff is most proud include a series of biographies of early Millersville principals, presidents, and instructors, a chat on girls' sports, a commentary on the ups and downs, in and outs of the Industrial Arts Department. The make-up division ventured some new column layouts to gain more space for print. A news letter prepared by the Faculty Servicemen s Committee eliminated the need for sending the SNAPPER to our men and women in the armed forces. However, the excerpts from letters received by people on campus from M.S.T.C. students serving Uncle Sam were currently reprinted in the paper. To Miss Marion Spencer the staff extends its thanks for many hours of service as adviser. Always she stood ready to offer a suggestion, a needed correction, or a bit of sound advice in a helpful manner. ★ The following students composed the 1944-45 staff: MARIAN RANCK...............Editor-in-chief LIZZIE CASLOW............

They sponsor the commissioners whose first task was to help Freshmen become established in the dormitory last fall. One of the main events of the year was the Room Contest and Open House, which caused a great rush on the mops, dusting pans, and dust cloths. Open House gave the faculty, day students, and dormitory men a chance to see just how original and clever the girls really .ire, and the surroundings in which they live. Bimonthly teas were a feature of this year's program. The W.C.A. again furnished the magazines that have been placed in the girls' Reception Room from time to time. The main event of the year came when the mothers of the girls were guests during Mother's Week End. March 9-11. This much anticipated annual event was carried on despite transportation problems, and our mothers went home, well pleased after having been royally entertained. Fori uWomen’s Day Student Association Officers President ........................ JEAN NASH Secretary.............MARY RACHEL HOOVER Treasurer ...................... LOIS HOOVER While being gently shoved and prodded by someone's books and elbows, we stumble off the buses and pour into our lower domain, the Day Student room. Lockers are opened, and everything tumbles out. Just to be shoved back later with lunches and more books. What a jumble! "Did you get that awful assignment done?" "Oh heavens. I forgot my lunch!" "Guess what happened last night!” "Lend me your book for just a minute, please..........rake those things off the tables. You know they don't belong there.” "Hey. are you ready to go?" Conversation floats back and forth across the room and suddenly everything is quiet and serene. Since everyone is gone now. we'll show you our Day rooms. Under Jean Nash's committee and Miss Hoch's guidance, our lounge has taken a new view on life. Those draperies of undetermined length have been made over, the chairs have been recovered, the floor has been waxed where our running and dancing haven't permanently scarred it. and plants have been added just to prove something can grow down there. As a climax to our redecorating activity, the Day students sponsored an art contest. The lucky winner had the honor of having her masterpiece purchased and hung in a prominent place on our walls. Judging the entries of the contestants was a hard job. but the judges felt their decision seemed best in accordance with the room itself. Out in the lunch room, a coat of green paint and Pennsylvania Dutch decalcomanias brightened up the drab furniture. By the way. we earned some of the money for this at our food sale, which was well attended by day .and dormitory students alike. It was a complete success and we came out on top with a much-needed twenty-eight dollars. Then, to show off our new acquisitions and to try to encourage more, we sponsored a tea in our own living room in February, under the direction of our Social chairman. Doris Little. Comments received then make us feel that our efforts have not been in vain. Forty-oneMen’s Day Student Association President CHARLES BOMBERGER Vice President ..

Second semester brought more men to Millersville, and the housing conditions arc comfortably crowded with a registry of twenty-three men. Meetings of the group as a whole were held on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings of every month, when discussions of campus problems were held. Among the activities on the campus. M.C.A. conducted a boys' Ping-pong tournament in which Richard Keller emerged the winner. The open house held in conjunction with the W.C.A was a big success, and though there were no blue ribbons awarded, each room was worth a prize in any men's housekeeping competition. Keeping the spark glow-inq for the once powerful Men's Day Student Association was the chief interest of that group of this year. To perpetuate the organization, officers held token meetings at intervals in their temporary rooms in the Men's Dormitory. When men students from the nearby areas once more hold their place in the college, the Men's Day Student Association will be waiting for them.

EDWARD DONOHUE Government at MUlersville ts one of co-operation between students and faculty, but the main part of the responsibility is borne by the Student Council, a student-organized and student-controlled governing body. With legislative, executive, and judicial powers, its purpose is to furnish an opportunity for students to experience democratic government; to foster a co-operative spirit among the students and faculty members; to regulate those matters of student conduct which are of such a nature as to permit student decisions: and to constitute a medium for the expression of initiative and exercise of judgment in the management of student affairs. MUlersville is also a member of the Associated Student Government of the State Teachers Colleges of Pennsylvania. This was organized in order to promote a high degree of co-operation among the students, faculties, and administrations of the State Teachers Colleges. The 7th Annual Conference of the A.S.G. was held in October. 1944. at California State Teachers College. Miss Powell. Evelyn Fletcher, and Mary Reisinger attended the conference. At this meeting, ideas were exchanged, problems presented, and a lending hand given by each college in their solutions. Council had for one of its major projects this year, the decoration of the old gym. We discovered that it was a long, slow process in these days with lack of men. materials, and spare time. However, progress was made, and with this year’s council having the same project in mind, it is hoped that a noticeable change in the appearance of our recreation hall will come soon.

EVELYN FLETCHER JOANNE MANIFOLD . OLGA LINK LOUISE LUDWIG ........ Critic LIZZIE CASLOW The Normal Literary Society is one of the busiest organizations on our campus. This society was organized in 1857 for the purpose of aiding students in developing a greater and more varied ability in public speaking, reading, dramatics, music, and the social graces. Each month a regular program is presented in which any member of the literary society may and does display some of his talents. A number of recent books have been purchased for the Normal library this year by the Society. Our first outstanding activity of the year was the reception for new members, which took place in the College Chapel, followed by a hayride and doggie roast. Dr. Sylvester K. Stevens. State Historian, was the speaker for the Eighty-eighth Anniversary meeting. The November program was set aside for the freshmen to display their many talents. Roy Bitzer. as master of ceremonies of the Amateur's Amateur Night, made quite a hit. The Society is proud to present to the student body and faculty various speakers of distinction. The main speaker of the year was Mr. Ramsey, war correspondent, who toured the battlefields of the world and depicted the conditions and feelings of our American as well as other Allied soldiers. His vivid descriptions and predictions were enjoyed by everyone. Forty-fourPage Literary Society First Semester ★ ★ ★ Officers Second Semester OZETTA GROFF . . . . President ...

Some were wise enough to know that pennies were Common Sense and the pins were Bachelor's Buttons. We discovered talent plus when the new freshman members had charge of .1 program. The Rooscvelt-Dewey debate was one of the outstanding Page activities. The Gay Nineties meeting, especially the "Bicycle Built for Two" number, was a delight to all Pageites. This year the Page Literary Society marked its ninetieth birthday with its anniversary program on May 11. Page was organized May 16. 1855, and named for the first principal of the first Normal School of New York. At the first meetings Pageites debated such topics as. 'Why is smoking tobacco agreeable?” “Docs the Mississippi flow up hill7 ' Can you imagine trying to prove the affirmative for these? How times have changed in ninety years! I i'orly-fivcDelta Phi Eta Sorority ¥ ¥ ¥ Delta Phi Eta. the girls' honor sorority, was organized at Millersville on May 1. 1941. The membership, which at present totals thirteen girls, is limited to those persons who have achieved a quality point average of 2.5 or better and who are outstanding in qualities of leadership, character, and services. This sorority strives to establish excellence in scholastic endeavor and to be an inspiration to the undergraduates of the college. During the past year, the officers of the sorority were Margaret Stauffer, president; Patricia Wilson Woemer, vice president: Harriet Osburn. secretary; Marjorie Rambo, treasurer; and Lois Hoover, historian. Active members of the sorority entertained the alumnae at a ''get-together" on February 10. This was the first alumnae gathering, and everyone hoped that more would follow. This year Delta Phi Eta was faced with the question of joining a national sorority. Several offers were considered seriously, with the hope that one could be found that upheld the organization's original standards of scholarship, leadership, and character. It was hard for the members to decide whether or not they wished to lose individuality in a larger organization or to become a functioning link of a worthwhile honor sorority. Forlysix ) Student Christian Movement ★ ★ Officers MARJORIE RAMBO ....................... President MARY HEISEY...................... Vice President MARIAN JONES ......................... Secretary LAURA COLEMAN ....................... Treasurer The Student Christian Association is not a new organization on campus, but a merger of two older ones, the Y.W.C.A. and the Y.M.C.A. It is a co-ed group of Christian students and faculty. ‘'Our purpose as a Christian Association is the creation of a lasting fellowship among students and faculty who have a desire to come to an intimate knowledge of God and to spread this knowledge throughout our campus and community through Christian action." The main activities of the organization arc informal discussions held each Wednesday evening and Sunday vesper services. After sending letters of welcome to each new student, the S.C.A. sponsored a get-acquainted party the first week of school. November brought the annual banquet with our guests. lone Sikes, representative of the State Teachers Colleges on the Board of Christian Education of the Presbyterian Church, and David Noss, fellow member of the S.C.M. from the Lancaster seminary. Students and faculty exceeded our goal in raising money for a World Student Service Fund Drive to help prisoners of war and students less fortunate than ourselves around the world. To begin the Christmas festivities there was the annual Christmas play, a student production of Dickens' Christmas Carol. The Christmas spirit was spread outside the campus by caroling and giving gifts to the children of the Mennonite Home Second semester went by in a whirlwind of activity including a large part in the Mother’s Week End program, the Flower Tea. a three-act play "Come Rain or Shine." and Sunday breakfast for the visiting mothers. The following week the S.C A. organized its efforts to produce a Spiritual Enrichment week end on campus. The school year was not ended until we had scoured the surrounding countryside on a scavenger hunt and picked violets for hospital patients in Lancaster. i 4 Forty-sevenICitamard and Theater Arts ★ ★ ★ Officers President ................ LORNA ESHLEMAN Vice President............... LOUISE LUDWIG Secretary ................... GERALDINE IZER Treasurer........................ NANCY CLIME Adviser ...... MISS ESTHER G. LENHARDT Unhand me. you villain!” "Aha. me proud beauty!" "No more shall you frighten beautiful ladies, you cur! Take that and that!" With these stirring words our hero foils another of the attempts of that black-hearted knave to collect the rent. Amid applause and cheers, the curtain falls and another triumph has been scored for the name of Citamard. Twice monthly the eager beavers of drama —those enthusiastic disciples of Thespis, gather together to learn the fundamentals of play production. Two major events of the past season were the party of November 10. when all new members were initiated by means of various tortures, and the annual Citamard play. The latter was presented on February 10. a Charlie Chan thriller. The House Without a Key." by Jean Lee Lathem, dramatized by Earl D. Biggers. Richard Keller portrayed that polite. Confucious-sounding gentleman who solved the murder case with the help of the rest of the cast Lizzie Caslow. Florence Markley, Nancy Clime. Russell Schreiber. Edward Donohue. John Walker. Mabel Short. Betty Jane Lewis, Rose Himmelreich. Virginia Kilgore. John Lantz. Dorothy Waters, Roy Bitzer, and the able direction of Miss Lenhardt. Of course. Citamard would be unable to produce such successful plays without those sturdy props of the Theater Arts Club. Under the direction of Arthur Ricci, the president, the members of the hammer and paintbrush organization set up and construct scenery, manage stage properties, change scenery, manipulate the floodlights, and carry on in general all the backstage work that is necessary for a successful production. 'ITiese men behind the scenes have also made possible the other dramatic presentations on the campus, with the help of Miss Lenhardt. the adviser. We of Citamard and Theater Arts are grateful for the untiring efforts put forth by our adviser and dramatic coach. This year Miss Lenhardt celebrates her twenty-fifth anniversary of directing plays at M.S.T.C. We salute her for her excellent work, and wish her success in the years to come. Forly-nincMusic Department Another year slips past on Wings of Song" at M.S.T.C Neither the war nor the lack of male voices could prevent Mr. Porter from organizing his choir of 60 girls' voices. An all-girl chorus was a new step in college history, but Mr. Porter was ready to make changes when necessary. The result was gratifying. Mr. Porter and the choir were acclaimed for their line singing when they made their first appearance at the Normal Literary Society Anniversary Meeting. In addition to our pianists. Ruth Powell and Arlene Sann, Mr. Porter added an orchestral accompaniment which won favor when it made its debut at the annual Christmas program. The Holiday Concert had a wide variety of traditional and modern selections. However, the male members of the college were interested in music, too. Would Mr. Porter help the boys organize an octette? Yes. Mr. Porter would, if the boys would promise to practice faithfully. The usual comment on campus was I want to hear this." And we did hear the octette one Friday afternoon on the chapel program and applauded the boys back for three curtain calls! They sang later for the English Club and the School Directors' Meeting. For the latter program the girls chorus was on hand also to complete the program with several impressive numbers. This year our orchestra has dwindled—but the essential material was there and heard while helping the Senior and Citamard plays tune up for their yearly performances. Then spring came, and the girls' sextette turned to thoughts of practicing for the annual spring concert. The sextette, dressed in pastel evening gowns, were delightful—especially in their interpretation of "What Can the Matter Be?" in a truly Andrews Sisters' style. The spring concert is always an enticing affair—lovely faces—colorful gowns—well-trained voices—and lively numbers contrasted with our great musicians' well-loved selections. The choir should be commended on their faithful participation in Tuesday chapel programs. Many new anthems and hymns were introduced and many old favorites were repeated (especially No. 3—Mr. Porter's favorite—and ours too, if we would only admit it!) Of course, in order to fulfill the many engagements, the girls have to faithfully attend Thursday evening choir practice. Although Mr. Porter in desperation insists that he has to "tear his hair and throat out''—we can say. "Thanks. Mr. Porter! This successful musical year shows that your efforts were not in vain." Fifty-oneEnglish Club ★ ★ Officers President ........................ LOIS LANDIS Vice President ............ EULA MAE BENDER Secretary......................... DOROTHY HERR Treasurer ............................ JESSIE FEHL Yes, "The Rains Came exactly four minutes before our fall doggie roast." However, we were undaunted. We tried again and succeeded. The day of our postponed "doggie roast" was well worth waiting for. This first "get-acquainted" party of the season was like a "delayed-action bomb"—a long time getting started, but effectively carried out. Mrs. Mark Stine, our first guest speaker, gave a delightful review of Stephen Vincent Benet’s "Western Star.” At a following meeting the freshmen members of our club contributed their many talents for our entertainment. Everyone enjoyed the piano, vocal, and violin solos. One petite freshman proved to be a very interesting story teller. The clever charades for book titles kept everyone guessing. |What book title would you think of if you saw before you a girl nonchalantly holding a razor blade? You’re right! It would be "The Razors Edge.”) Our adviser. Mr. McComsey. entertained us with his Christmas story for our holiday meeting and the college men’s octette were our welcomed guests. "The Thurber Carnival." reviewed by one of our own members, struck the humorous side of our personalities. Sketches and cartoons added special interest to the review. On the same program—continuing on the entertainment side—was our active and efficient vice president’s "Truth or Consequence Show." (What consequences!) Mrs. D. Luke Bicmcsdcrfcr was our special guest reviewer in the second semester. Her personality won everyone’s interest and attention. "Spring Moods" brought back the outdoor spirit again and the English Club signed off with the crackling fire of their final doggie roast. Fifty-twoSpeech Choir ★ ★ ★ Officers President......................................LOIS HOOVER Secretary .................... VIRGINIA KILGORE Treasurer.......... JESSIE FEHL The purpose of the speech choir is to gain an appreciation of poetry through group participation. The choir originated in a Summer School speech class. Members of this class enjoyed this concerted participation so much that they asked to continue their work in the fall. Since then the speech choir has become an established club on the campus of Millersville. The work of the speech choir this year was centered around two Pennsylvania Dutch children and their mother. The children asked their mother 'wordly'- questions, and she tried to answer them In her fashion. However, when Mom'' was at a loss for an answer, she asked the aid of the choir, and in unison they gave the answers. When Jacob asked "Mom." "What does a clock have to do with speaking up ?" she referred the question to the choir, which answered with the selection "The Kitchen Clock.'' which tells just what a clock has to do with courting. Postcards of various campus scenes were printed and sold to help swell the treasury. Fifty-threeLibrary Science Club it it it Officers President ................... MARY HEISEY Vice President ........ FRANCES KELLER Secretary-Treasurer ... LAURA COLEMAN Just eleven strong! These tcacher-librarians-to-be have had a busy year learning about books, cataloging, and library management, but have pulled through smiling. One of the highlights of the monthly meetings was Miss Hoch's talk on library decoration. The girls contributed to the meetings with book reviews, quizzes, games, and food—a grand Christmas party. What excited girls those Juniors were when they returned from New York' They went on a sight-seeing tour of the big city and visited the Public Library as well as other points of interest to a librarian. Everyone was quite green with envy when they told us about it on their program. Once again the club sponsored the Sunday evening book reviews, which have become an annual project. This year Dr. J. A. Hogan. Dr. Donald Englert. and Mr. Lawrence Smith were among our guest reviewers. The members are Laura Coleman. Mary Heisey, Frances Keller. Harriet Osburn. Marjorie Rambo, Marian Ranck. Nancy Clime. Mary Rachel Hoover. Helen Shultz. Betsy Stehman. and Nancy Wood. Fifty-fourPrimary Club ★ ★ ★ Officers President ............. JOSEPHINE IMBODEN Vice President.............. ELAINE DUFFY Secretary ................ RUTH BERTOLLETE Treasurer .................. JEAN WALKER One of the largest organizations on the campus, the Primary Club aims to help its members understand the primary teaching field, and its pleasures and satisfactions as well as its more serious problems. Under the guidance of the primary supervisors, led by Miss Hoffmcier. the group has had an inspiring series of meetings this year. October led off with a Hallowe'en party, where members constructed masks from paper plates, learned folk dances, and had a rollicking good time all around. In November, with Christmas in mind, at a handicraft meeting, some very clever and intriguing presents were made out of practically nothing. Then at the Christmas program a very enjoyable hodr was spent in listening to a recording of Dickens' "Christmas Carol and cutting out Christmas tree decorations from patterns. The next meeting was along a more serious line, and Dr. Myers of our own faculty lectured on the subject of adjusting the subnormal child. This he followed up in the next meeting by actually testing individual children for our observation. Mrs. Smith. Miss Hughes, and Miss Frey pictured the influence of their respective departments of the library, music, and art in the primary grades, at the March meeting. A former member of our faculty and supervisor of the kindergarten. Miss June Smith, school psychologist of Lancaster County, spoke to the group in April. The annual picnic in May brought the successful year to a grand climax with games and plenty to cat. Fifty-fireClass History ★ 1941-42 As wide-eyed freshmen, we pulled the usual number of boners in the usual style. Just think! We were the first class to see Wickersham Hall and the new gym in action. Parties . . . parties . . . parties! I There was a barn dance, a treasure hunt, and a doggie roast—all in one week! For the first time in history the whole school was present at the Orientation Dance. Our first political adventure cleared up and found Robert Biemcsderfcr as our "big" chief and Vance Snyder as our little' chief, while Gwen McCombs kept our records and Hattie Osburn kept account of the money we didn't have. We did enjoy wearing our regalia until after Homecoming Day in the middle of November . . . honest! Then came December 7. 1941 ... No one will ever forget that day . . . half the fellows stayed out the next day to enlist. Guess we weren't so green after all. judging by the success of the Shamrock Shuffle . . . can still hear Chet Lincoln's music cverytime the dance program pops up. 1942-43 How we did enjoy hearing Robert Frost reading Mending Wall" and other poems, just as the leaves were turning brown. Didn't see how we could get along without "Lingy" to teach us grammar when wc learned that he was enlisted in the Army . . . Miss Snyder soon showed us how. Social life was at an ebb this year . . . with so many fellows gone and all. Why arc Sophomores always so insignificant? 1943-44 Marian Ranck watched over us this year with the able assistance of Mary Eby. Mary Heisey kept an account of us while Bette Donnalley (Miller) balanced financial accounts. We were eager for that first peek at the amiable Dr. Biemcsderfcr. our new college president. Long about May wc shook off our apathy and held a food sale, and a splash party with ‘‘wieners" afterward . . to say nothing of the rummage sale and the planting of the oak tree. Remember how all of us beamed with pride at the unveiling of Mr. Talbot Hoover's portrait which "wc had had painted '? 1944-45 To be sure of having a superior annual this year, wc chose Harriet Osburn as Editor-in-chicf and Frances Keller as Business Manager. The experienced hand of Marian Ranck led us down our final path. Margaret Stauffer became Secretary and Mary Eby balanced the books. Anybody have some rummage? . . . There was another sale . . . this time at Columbia. Were “love's labour's" really lost? ... or did you miss the senior play? Dignified (?) seniors let down their professional hair and had a rip-roarin' good time at the Clod Hop (as who didn't?). We're certainly proud of those seven who made Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Never saw so much food disappear as fast as it did at our January food sale. Then came midyear graduations, which took away three ... we hope to see them again in June Getting measured for caps and gowns, graduation announcements, etc., can only mean one thing, we're almost through! What a swell farewell party we had! No. we won't ever forget it. or our dear old Alma Mater. With impressive Baccalaureate and Commencement services we found ourselves actually finished and ready to face the world. Well, almost ready . . . There were still those last visits and goodbyes. Never mind, we'll all be back someday for our 25th anniversary, so. until then, so long. Sirty-oneDirectory ★ BUCKALEW. FRANCES Oxford.
