TENN OIEWINE AND DORN SAMUEL GEISSENHAINER• • Our college life began with the uncertainties and misgivings of a totolly no environment. We doubted, we wondered: and we wished for aid in helping us to find the wholesome college life. We found our counselors in the Deans of Men and Women. It is to Miss Ethel Jane Powell and Dr. C. M. Myers that we gratefully express our thanks, for taking us in hand during those dork hours is more than a devotion to duty: it is on expression of preeminence in guidance. Truly, they deserve the honor of being remembered forever os molders of tomorrow's educators and leaders. With us we will take a bit of Miss Powell and Dr. Myers, not only as a fond memory, but os a nucleus of our own tasks of counseling awaiting us. As a token of appreciation, therefore, the Class of 1947 dedicates this Touchstone to Miss Ethel Jane Powell and Dr. C. M. Myers.9 ftv}£ itrmfvvnfyrfr) jpj)£ vyaovgrIN SEARCH OF KNOWLEDGE CbitA SwMLng•cnoolrooea of Aoarica In a r ar whan tha obligation abicn rantFOR THE TIMES AHEAD THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES J. F.

Historian 20 J' dh (Os Wlahch Jjo (Shiny Jhss Jams -September, 1943! 46 studious, ombitious freshmen entered M.S.T.C. . . . our closs wos the smallest to enter in many years. It didn't talce long for the orientation committee to start working and for the freshmen to wonder what would happen next. However, we all survived and became better adapted to our environment as time went along. As we began our new life President Biemesderfer moved into the little "white house" across the lake and took over his new responsibilities. Our class advisers, Miss Hughes and Mr. Beckmyer. called us together and we elected officers; John Hess—president. Anno Mae Weaver—vice-president. Geraldine Izer—secretary, Esther Gannes—treasurer, and Jean Ward—historian. Towards the close of the year we held a party at Mr. Beckmyer’s home and there cemented the friendships which have lasted during our stay at M.S.T.C. and which we hope will lost for years to come. Our Sophomore year Russell Schreiber guided us with the able assistance of Pauline Rineer. Evelyn Fletcher was elected secretary; Margaret Wise, treasurer, and Alice Ankrum. historian. Our class became even smoller. os some took the accelerated course, a few transferred to other schools and others joined the armed services. In the early spring we got together with the Freshmen and came out with an informal party enjoyed by the entire school. It was during this yeor also that we planted our tree not far from the corner of the boys' dorm and buried gifts and letters nearby. What a time we will hove in 1952 coming back to dig up the "treasures." We entered our Junior yeor feeling wiser (?) and better able to assume our responsibilities. With Jean Ward. Olga Link. Mary Helen Morrin, and Geraldine Izer elected as officers of the flock, plans were launched for a food sole—an act that met with hearty approval on the port of both producer and consumer. During basketball season the closs took charge of a candy stand, replenishing the energy of exhausted fans. This year the Old Gym was redecorated and our class devoted much of its time and talent to that. The second semester some of the beys returned from the armed services and we had high hopes that many more would be with us the next yeor. One of the closs meetings was a get-acquainted party in the Old Gym, where we devoured hot dogs and cokes" and learned to know these new members of our closs. Behold the Seniors! This yeor our college has 730 students—quite a difference from the college of 180 that we entered as Freshmen. Of those 730 many are returned servicemen, two-thirds of whom are now seniors. Even though these men were formerly of other classes, we are glad and proud to have them graduate with us. In a very short while, we. too. will be passing out those gates as have others before us. The time has passed quickly, with practice teaching and school activities keeping us busy. With Don McGlothery. president; Bob Meek, vice-president; Margaret Wise, secretory, and Earl Eshlemon. treasurer, we set forward at our new responsi- bilities as the "dignified Seniors." Having chosen Jack Loose for our Touchstone Editor and Geraldine Izer os Business Monaaer, we feel sure that our yearbook will be a good one. Our first big event of the year was the Senior play. "Out of the Frying Pan." Will anyone ever forget it! On a cold November day Russell Schreiber. the first member of our closs to sign his teaching contract, also got the traditional ducking in the lake. Our lost semester wos our busiest one. with parties, teas and all the activities that go with graduation. At last the Senior Boll—and then the big day—Commencement—which we thought four years ago so far away. Amid the rejoicing we regret that we must leave M.S.T.C. But with us we take many happy memories into the future with the hope that we may help to build o better and happier world.ALICE ANKRUM Mathematics and English For moth problems, go see Alice: for Alice, go to lobby.

Still tingling with the excitement of underclassman activities, but already charged with the responsibility of their profession, the juniors can look to a future rich os has been the past year. Early in the fall, the Junior Closs rolled up its sleeves and planned a dance. Using an Autumn atmosphere the dance, The Leaf Shuffle, served both as a closs function and as a "get-together" for all the students. Needless to say. the Shuffle was a decided success. During the second semester the class was faced with the duties that befall the near-seniors. One of these duties consists of electing an editor-in-chief and business monager for the next Touchstone. The class elected Barbora J. Angle, associate editor of 1947 Touchstone, to the editorship of the 1948 Touchstone. The final and greatest event of the Junior Class was the Junior Prom. The juniors showed that the post-war Prom has nothing lacking in regard to splendor, pleasure, and sociability. 4647CLASS OFFICERS Ralph Kroff .......................................

The officers and members went into a huddle and came out with o top-rote idea. Their plan was to start the year off with a bang. With fireworks? No. with a dance! Every member hustled around moking posters, selling tickets, publicizing the gala event, and decorating. Before it was realized, the big day had arrived, and on that memorable evening of November 16th. couples were seen crossing the dance-starved campus to the Old Gym. Naturally they were going to the Pigskin Whirl! It was a howling success—dancing to Bob Lighter's orchestra—watching the wolves turn out in full force! After the excitement of the dance, the holidoys separated the class: but after the beginning of the second semester, the sophomores again began planning their spring event.

Orientation days were rugged ones, but the freshmen ore glad for having gone through them, and they can hordly wait to try their skill at next year s orientation! After heavy campaigning, class officers were elected. Strongly supported by the four hundred, the new officers set about to plan for a dance. The result wos the well-remembered Harvest Hop. a dance conceived and executed by the versatile minds of the Frosh, and decorated in o rustic theme, with music by Bob Lighter. It was o wonderful night, and the class is groteful to all who helped moke it such a success. There was one sad note in our year's medley of activities. The trogic accidental death of John Mayer was deeply felt by his class and the entire college. All in all. this was a happy year. Millersville and Penn State freshmen joined together in one united group ond moved forward happily, both scholastically and sociolly.

MSTC has every reason to be proud of its Snopper. 57cn ooFIGHT FOR TRUTH AND RIGHT True to trodition, Normol and its rival literary society got off to a fine start by presenting programs designed to secure the approval of the new students. Normal’s party for the freshmen took the form of a barn party, complete with hoy and hicks. There were no dull moments with Norm Sharpless as master of ceremonies. After the literary society election, many of the new members participated in the monthly meetings, bringing to Normal an influx of new talent. The Normol Literary Society held its Ninetieth Anniversary Program in October, and at that time presented the Glee Club of Cheyney State Teachers College. The year of 1946 was brought to o close by a discussion concerning the social life at Millersville. Because of the greatly increased enrollment, problems of getting acquainted and into "the swim of things" provided much material for debate, and furnished the student body with new ideas for improvement of their college life. The main Spring event was the Normal Sweetheart Dance, where cus-tomory procedure is reversed, the girls bringing the fellows. As Normol Literary Society draws to a successful close for this term, its members agree that this was a most enjoyable year. To Mrs. Breneman and Mr. Hovis go the thanks of all Normolites for their helpful advice. 61RICH I HI TRUTH After losing our president, Robert Hornish, to radio, our vice-president. Barbara Angle, took over the official reins. Page's first big event of the year was the reception for its new members. who numbered approximately one hundred and seventy-five. The reception. which was held September thirteen, was made up of a program in the chapel by severol of the Page members. A few songs ond a brief history of Page Literary Society were featured. A social hour of dancing and refreshments followed in the Old Gym. The second meeting was held at the regular chapel program for Friday. October fourth. A solo, a story, an hilarious impersonation, a Dr. I. Q. Quiz Progrom with real prizes for winning contests and a duet advertising the merits of Page made an enjoyable hour. "Around the World with Page" was the theme of another society meeting when Page veterans spoke about the foreign countries with which they hod come into contact. India, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Holy Lands were all discussed in a question and answer session. A Christmas meeting composed entirely of Freshman talent was held December twelfth.

For from that time on until four in the afternoon not much dust collects on the window sills because of lock of activity. Few dull moments are spent in the day student lounge (except during the week before final examinations). If at any time the atmosphere should approach a lull, strains of music from the famous Room R would surely revive any logging spirit. Then if, while one of the fair Millersville losses would be studiously engaged, hunger should strike unrelentlessly. a auick retreat to the candy counter would prove satisfactory.

The Club all worked together and. at the end of the program, they went home with the satisfaction of a job well-done. As a contrast to our talents in the musical field, we had serious talks, too. Miss Powell gave us a review on the Puritans and Pilgrims in the book. Saints and Strangers, which proved very interesting and brought out the contrast of the Pilgrims and Puritans. For our Christmas program, which was the great surprise of the year, we had Christmas solos, an excellent talk on the Holy Land by Gordon Eby, who has spent some time there. As a final conclusion, we were visited by Old St. Nick himself, who gave us favors. We could go "on and on" on the English Club, but as a last statement it is appropriate to add that all our members (50 of them) contributed to the success, along with efficient and able officers. As a final remark the person who led us through our difficulties with a guiding hand and who did more than enough for our Club s benefit was the Club’s adviser, Dean McComsey. 76OcUiAihj (flub The Vorsity Club is on honorary organization open to those men who successfully won a vorsity letter in one of the five vorsity sports. This club was disbonded in 1943 for the duration of the war. With the return of the Marauders the club wos rejuvenated. Its purpose is to promote sportsmanship, leadership, and service in athletic contests. Eo h year our organization gives to the graduating seniors a gold varsity key. and a miniature ball of gold pertaining to the sport in which he participated. In addition to this award the club gives to any athlete who has won two varsity letters in the same sport a heavy black and gold woolen sweater. Each year the club holds two dances, the first of which is''the famous Varsity Drag, which is held Homecoming Day and is the social event of the year. The second dance is held in the Spring: at this time the Varsity Sweethearts are presented to the foculty and students. The Vorsity Sweethearts ore chosen for their leadership, scholarship, and. of course, it helps if HE is a member of Vorsity Club. The Sweethearts for this year were Pauline Rineer, Ann Eschbach. Betty Geisler. Ann Foster. Marianne Weicksel, and Doris Heisey. 77 __________________________________________________(publkihj. fommiibisi OFFICERS Norroon R. Shorpleu Doris A. Hoisey Jock W. W. Loose Lewis J. Copoldi Lynwood S. Lingenfelter The Publicity Committee, o standing committee of the Student Council, has os its function the gathering and dissemination of all news releases of college organizations, deportments, and personnel to the press. This work aims at keeping before the public the activities of the college, faculty, and students. The resultant publicity odds to the fame of the institution and its personnel and affords faculty and students additional prestige. In addition, parents, friends, and possible employers are kept aware of a student's outstanding activities. Moreover, actual practice in gathering and writing news releases and publicity moterial under faculty guidance gives participating students a wealth of experience helpful in advising school publications and teaching journalism. This year, for the first time, the work of the committee has been performed in conjunction with the college journalism course. Thus, the committee members receive academic credit for their contribution to the college.

M., but now classes were running until 5:00. It was finally agreed upon to meet at 7:00 in the evening, and. to everyone’s surprise. the attendance was greater than ever before. The club opened a successful year with a fashion show for the entire student body. Miss Patricia Fay. Penn State Home Economics Extension representative. gave an interesting lecture in connection with the fashion show. The Christmas meeting was strictly a social event with games, carols, ancf refreshments enjoyed by all. At the first meeting of the new year Dr. Robert Kemble, well-known child psychiatrist. spoke on problems of child guidance and provided the members of the club with much helpful advice. In the spring other lectures were heard on subjects related to education for children. The club climaxed a successful year by a joint meeting with the West Chester State Teachers College Primary Club. At this time the problems of both groups were discussed. 79(?JwiA MEMBERS OF CHOIR June Anderson, Alice Ankrum, Robert Arntz, Anne Bossier, Romoine Boyer, Merl Brightbill.

For the first time since the war there were enough men to balonce the women's voices. This yeor there are about 80 members in the choir, mony of whom ore returned veterans. The choir opened a successful season with the presentation of Handel s Messiah, which was traditional for many yeors. With the decline of students it was dropped for several years. Aside from preparing for weekly chapel programs, the choir spent all its time from September on the Messiah. This famous oratorio was performed on Sunday. December 15. before on audience which overflowed into the lobby. It included people from all ports of the state. After Christmos the choir began preparation for "Spiritual Enrichment Week' and "Mothers' Week-end." The next outstanding event was the May Day program for which the choir sang. It closed its season as usual with the baccalaureate and commencement progroms. Although comparatively inactive during the first semester the Girls Sextette mode a number of successful oppearances in the latter port of the year. This group, composed of Marianne Weicicsel. Betty Geisler, Margaret Thomas. June Anderson. Anne Bossier, and Virginia Gehrnon. sang not only at school affairs but also at various programs throughout Lancaster County. Credit for the success of these musical organizations is largely due to the able leadership of the director, Mr. Porter. Sacrificing many personal engagements. Mr. Porter has untiringly worked to bring results which met his high standards of musical excellence. MELZER R. PORTER Conductor 83OAch AJUva Each Wednesday afternoon from four to five o'clock, strains of music can be heard coming from Room R. This harmony is produced by the College Symphony Orchestra, under the labor of Mr. Porter during its weekly rehearsal period. The fine rendition of orchestral selections at the various dramatic productions is evidence of the many tedious hours of preparation spent in enlarging its repertoire and developing its skill. Among these true musicians of the campus are some who have appeared os soloists or with small groups on many campus programs. Many helped augment the professional orchestra that ployed for the annuol Messiah presentation. Several were active in La Core, the campus dance bond. To Mr. Porter we extend the sincerest thanks for his contribution in moking this organization a successful one. 84RICHARD ENGARD Drum Mojor Personnel rotter of tho bond includes: M. W. Brightbill, H. Hohn, J. Jones, R. Nowharf, W. Savage, B. Strossbaugh, R. Reed on the trumpots; M. Garner, I. Henly, T. Kunsmon, H. Porter, R. Porter, and R. Rumborger on the trombones: D. Egner, R. Egner, H. Illingsworth, D. Huber, E. Krone, and J. Hollinger ploy the baritone, tubo, and horns; C. Good, E. Hemberger, J. Jackson, D. Kolt-z reider, J. North, and J. Seitz ore in the percussion section; J, Unstead, E. Aston, H. Borell, N. Gorver, L. Goss. J. Kennedy. C. Tressler, H. Trout. E. Davies ploy the clarinets; R. Dorn, P. Graved, E. Fletcher, and H. Zerflng ploy the saxes; and D. Hoke, G. Parkes, and G. Gerlach ore in the flute section. The Touchstone applauds MSTC's first post-war band. Local newspapers, reporting the Marauders’ 1946 football schedule, were unanimous in commending the band’s execution of involved drill between the halves of home gomes. The director, Mr. George R. Anderson, filmed the band from the sidelines during its halftime performances and used these colored motion pictures for instructional purposes at subsequent band rehearsals. A novel arrangement coming from the student cheering section was the popular yell-with-bond, in which both band and student body participate. In addition to inspiring the Marauders, the band has appeared on chapel programs and participated in "pep" rallies. A swing arrangement of Swing Low. Sweet Chariot," proved to be popular in the chapel appearances of tke band. As the Touchstone goes to press, preparations are being made for a spring concert season. This splendid organization is the result of capable leadership and the devotion of its members. 85 o COCh Lhiny BEAT KUTZTOWN! CRUSH LOCK HAVEN! Mow ’em down, Boys! Energetic, vigorous antics of our cheerleaders surely give the Marauders an extra shove when the goal post looms near. Pretty and full of pep. the girls prod the team onward to victory, and, occasionally, stimulate the slow ones in the bleachers. Long will the echoes of their cheers ond yells remai i in the memory of the students, and when they return os alumni on Homecoming Doy, again the familiar yells will greet the Marauders of the future.» Afternoon games Night game ♦To be played at Gladfelter Stadium.

(BcdthJi up With the war over and boys returning to the campus. Millers-ville was once again able to field a baseboll team into intercollegiate competition. While not up to the best representation for the college, the team at least gave Coach Puciilo a chance to loot over his material and plan for the years to come. Tho schedule, made rather late and hurriedly, was only one of eight games, all with State Teachers Colleges. Even with competition in the same class os our coilege. the team did not do so we I. since they only won one game out of six. Two of the games were cancelled because of wet grounds. Coach Puciilo made his first coll for candidates for the team in the last week of March, and had to hurry the boys into shope because the first game was scheduled for the 12th of April against Bloomsburg. The first cell brought forth the botterymen. who are os follows: Pitchers: James Phy. Clavin Stott. Dick Peters. Joe Pod-lesney, and Ken Willioms: Catchers: Doncld Jones, who was captain: Forrest Guth, and Paul Crowley. About a week later the rest of vhe squad reported for practice. Those reporting for infield and outfield positions were: Malcolm MocFarlan, Horry Henly, Roland Williams. Micha.'l Kushick. Joseph Postolok. Joe Rodriquez. John Holtzinger. Lee Brubaker.
