 _THE 1948 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIDB ELASS  TOUCHSTONE STATE lEACHERS COLLEGE M I L L E H S V LLE P E N N S Y LVA N I AWE REFLECT HIS EFFDRTS The transition from high school to college is never an easy one to make, and. even after this difficult phase is over, there are many other problems to be met. Consequently, we cannot express our appreciation in words to the person whose guidance has helped us make a success of our college years. Dr. Dutcher, Dean of the Social Studies Department, is that person to whom v e owe so much. None of us shall forget his thought-provoking classes made lively Bby his own inimitable sense of humor. As class dean and yearbook advisor, teacher and friend, he has allied himself with each senior. So it is to Dr. Dutcher we dedicate this book. r' hrst state normal I agAi nur «LfeaE”«MSj hoi ] eioScc Institute was rCl J HL i85 Made the first State Normal, 1859.

First picture—sweet, innocent little cherubs fresh from Mother's apron strings. And then . . . ah, ha! Like lambs led to the slaughter, we were oriented by those individuals who inhabit ethereal realms—upperclassmen. Oh, the degrading atrocities we were forced into! Carrying an umbrella when the sun was shining wasn't nearly so bad as wearing our clothing backwards and having make-up on only half our faces. Eating square meals and wearing toast on our ears lowered us to prisoner of war ranks. And that eternal regalia! But eventually the great white gods became appeased by our puppy-dog air and declared that we could again join the human race. All of this, plus the bewilderment of the Page and Normal rush, left us in a whirl. Dr. Dutcher and Mrs. Councilman, after serious consideration decided that, with the help of the Almighty, they would attempt to advise and direct us in the paths of knowledge for four years. Perhaps they've repented since then, but "what's done cannot be undone." At any rate, we're thankful for their unwavering kindness. A semblance of order was obtained with the election of our officers: Edward Donohue, President; Betty Edwards, Vice President; Mary T. Goldbach, Treasurer; and Mary Herr, Secretary. We began to feel more like a class, and a college class at that! But before the year was over, we had experienced for the first time, the joys of final exams.STAND . . The Sophomore year, under the guiding light of our president, Ann Foster, and her cabinet consisting of June Anderson, Gloria Vassil, and Betty Geisler, could be called our renaissance. We not only had college classes to bewilder us, but also that delight of delights—playground! Playground is that process by which you swallow one-half a lunch, plus one gulp of H-O and speed busily across campus to v atch little children at play. Under the keen observation of Mr. Beck-myer, we helped beautify the campus by adding one more tree. As is the tradition, we planted presents with it, not to be unearthed until seven long years elapse. On the social side of life, there was our February party, "Cupid's Tailspin," a direct result of the return of the male animal to the campus. It was highly successful. Remember the balloons and music—and the refreshments. As Sophomores, and upperclassmen, we had the privilege of having pretty and popular Betty Geisler and Ann Foster selected as Varsity Sweethearts. Our pilgrimage continued into our Junior year, with Walt Reese at the helm, assisted by John Holzinger, Gloria Vassil, and Anne Bossier. This was the year we became upperclassmen—at last—but we soon came down from our rosy cloud. Work, work and more work. We all went "unit crazy" from a course entitled "Curriculum Materials." Also, there was the little matter of observations to be made, written, and duly handed in. lies, big dances, Rat Races—a campus crov ded with people. We sponsored two dances ourselves—the Leaf Shuffle and our traditional Junior Prom. The year was over before we knew it! And then it happened! Almost with reluctance, we crossed the threshold of our Senior year. We trusted the leadership of out class to Elmer Hemburger and the publication of the yearbook to Babs Angle. June Anderson became Vice President, Romaine Boyer, Secretary, and John Holzinger our Treasurer. For the first time we came smack up against all the responsibilities of teaching. Were we nervous? You bet. But, our years of work were not in vain, for we emerged masters of the situation and enjoyed it! Appropriately we chose "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" as our "play of the year.” Thanks to Miss Lenhardt and the true-to-life Foster-Angle duet, it was a big success. The days went by so swiftly. All the last minute things to do and with it all, the ever-present "Wonder where we'll be this time next year?" Announcements, caps and gowns, our very last finals—and then the Senior Prom, biggest dance of the year. Finally graduation—a thrill we'll never forget. The dignity of the procession, the reality of our leaving the campus, and all our memories of friends and fun rush back. The lake remains mirror-smooth, the reflections of the past, sharp, but the reflections of the future still hidden in its depths. But college life also began to live up to all our expectations—football and pep ral-ALTA ACHESON Secondary Arrives bright eyed and cheerful from Quarryvlllo each morning . . .

June Andorson Barbara Anglo Mile© Wonglasz Elmer Hemborger Vora Cloavos Each year the publication Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities selects a number of seniors from Millersville to appear in its current yearbook. Recommendations are made by a campus ‘nominating committee made up of students and faculty v ho consider outstanding effort and accomplishment in academic work, extracurricular activities and service to the school. These recommendations are then sent to the publisher who makes the final decision on those to be included. During the semester certificates of merit are presented to the students thus honored. The thirteen seniors chosen from the Class of '48 are representative of the outstanding students of this college. Their scholastic and social achievements throughout their years of attendance have been recognized by all. Students such as these do much to contribute to life on any campus.

Nor was it long ago that we as timid freshmen began to work out our college destinies. We've accomplished much in the fields of scholarship, sports, music—all the phases of campus life. However, hard work is forgotten as we remember our Forty-niner parties and dances, highlighted this year by the traditionally beautiful Junior Prom. This year, we are headed by that all-round guy, Ralph Kraft, whose cabinet consists of Vice President, Bill Keays, Secretary, Doris Cresswell, and Treasurer, Joe Pastelak.LIBRARY SCIENCE AND ELEMENTARY INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND SECONDARY t v LIBRARY SCIENCE AND ELEMENTARY SOPHOMORES Hallway up the college ladder, we, as sophomores, reflect upon these last two years. Looking back we see the good times we've had—the rigors of orientation, the class of the "four hundred," the memories of our Soph spring dance, and the hilarity of our second gala picnic. This year, we entrusted the leadership of our class to versatile Walt Ullrich, aided by Charles Benshetler as Vice President, Mary Workman as Secretary, and Arlene Snyder as Treasurer.  INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND SECONDARY PENN STATE FRESHMENFRESHMEN We lowly mortals will best remember the year 1947-1948 as one ushered in by rules and regalia. Venturing from home, we stepped into a world bounded by upperclassmen who did their best to orient us to college life, a seemingly endless process. But at last it was over and we emerged from the fray full-fledged college frosh. As a class we chose Joe Zigo-vits president, with Frank Petras, Mary Buck-waiter and Gloria Smith to help him organize. Immediately big plans began a'brewing, and we can't help looking forward to our next three college years.

Normal Literary Society started its year with a gala reception for the Freshmen, using the usual publicity campaign for luring people into the society. Signs were scattered over the campus telling Freshmen the advantages of joining the ''normal'' society on campus. Its rival society, Page, entered into the competition with a startling radio interruption during the program Normal planned for the Freshmen. However, Normal got its revenge by confiscating some of Page's equipment and placing reminders around Chapel when Page had its Freshmen entertainment. The next big event was the Normal Anniversary. All the members gave their utmost to make it a success. Janet Whitney, the author of the recent biography, Abigail Adams, was the guest speaker. She was very warmly received and enjoyed by those who attended. When the thirteenth of February rolled around. Normal was all ready with its annual Sweetheart Dance. A wonderful time was had by all. for the dance was a tremendous success. This being Leap Year, it was even more appropriate that the girls should dig down deep, and treat their dates to a big evening. Brooks Hall, cleverly decorated, provided the setting for the Normal formal. The year was rounded out with the scheduled monthly meetings and big plans were laid for next year's sequence of events sponsored by the Normal Literary Society.I I The Queen bostows her iavor upon a lucky escort.

For the first time in its long history, Page Literary Society can boast of having over five hundred members. This was no mere accident. It was the result of hard work performed by nearly every member of Page. This year, the rivalry between Page and Normal led to the most spirited campaign for members in many years. Page's first offensive was launched last summer when upperclassmen wrote letters to the prospective freshmen. On Saturday evening, September 26, Page held its annual reception for freshmen. The highlight of the reception was a talent show in the college chapel. The president, John Crowthers, welcomed the frosh to the campus, and greeted an enthusiastic host of loyal Page-ites. Upperclassmen, exhibiting their talents, provided excellent entertainment for those present. The group then proceeded to the Old Gym where they danced to the music of an "imported” juke-box, sipped "Cokes", and ate ice cream. Novel decorations based on the football field gave a jubilant atmosphere to the dance floor. BUI Ketlorman "O Solo Mios" to Doris Loary in the February Pago Program.

Rules for community living, study hours, permissions, and the races against the clock are just as much a part of dormitory life as teas, gab-sessions. Open House, and hostessing at functions on campus. Its busy program demanded the ingenuity and hard v ork of our president, Cleo Sheets. Each month featured a get-together with a catchy theme. A "Little Girls' Party" provided an opportunity for the freshmen to become acquainted with upperclassmen and with each other. In October, the warmth of I the lobby, gaily decorated with autumn leaves and yellow pumpkins, invited students in to the Hallowe'en tea. The girls offered their rooms and companionship to the representatives attending the State Teachers College Conference in November. Traditional greens, red ribbons, and a huge tree put everyone in the Christmas spirit. Our cocoa pour really hit the spot. Preparations for Open House and Parents' Weekend kept everyone busy till the end of the year.A rush of cold air and someone enters the "quiet, peaceful" Day Room. Groups of girls are gathered around the radio, on the couches, in the comers talking avidly while here and there a conscientious soul may be seen studying. Out in the locker room those who can't wait have already begun on their lunches. But, what’s new in the realm of the day students? Everyone is talking about the candy machine which has made popular that familiar saying, "Anyone got two nickels for a dime?" The Christmas party was a real success. Decorations and a tree made the Day Room look Christmassy and festive. Everyone exchanged silly little gifts, carols were sung, and (last but not least) refreshments were served. Food sale time came around under the guidance of Jane Keener, and every month a tea was held in a spic and span Day Room. The girls had a good time this year in the day room thanks to the work done by the officers and members of Welfare and Equity, who served them well.

The Millersville chapter of the Future Teachers of America enjoyed a successful year under the sponsorship of Mr. Joseph Torshia and Mr. Raymond Hovis. Evening meetings were held in Room R at which various teacher problems were discussed in the light of current methods. A number of speakers including campus personalities and authorities on the phases of teaching participated in the program, and gave pertinent suggestions to practice teachers. FUTURE TEACHERS QF AMERICA MEN'S COMMUTING ASSOCIATION Here is proof that the day student men do more than play card in those rare momonts between classes. For the first time our men day students have truly come into their own. Previously relegated to the lower depths of the dorm, they now have new, well-equipped day rooms complete with lockers and ping-pong tables in the Old Gym. Perhaps increased numbers accounts for increased attention. The day-men were headed this year by Prexy Bob Winters and his aides, John Holzinger and Dick Reese.MU KAPPA MU For tho first reincarnation of Mu Kappa Mu since the war. the mombors chose Ken King to be president. Ed Randier Vice President. Romaino Boyer Secretary .and Alta Acheson Treasurer Far back in the dim shadows of the past, in the year 1937, a small group of students allowed their instincts full sway, and from such an inauspicious beginning. Mu Kappa Mu was founded. Mu Kappa Mu, translated literally from the Greek, stands for the letters M C M, abbreviations for Mathematics Club of Millersville. After several years of being inactive because of the war, the Mu Kappa Mu has once more been organized by a group of forty interested students. Following a revision of the constitution, the club now 'con- sists of all those students who are majoring, minoring, or in any way interested in mathematics instead of, as in the past, only those people who were majoring in math. The purpose of the club is an acquisition of a greater understanding of and an appreciation for mathematics and also to make secure the high place of mathematics among the other sciences. Held monthly, the meetings consisted of lectures, reports, discussions, films and puzzles dealing with mathematics.STUDENT COUNCIL This year our student council had the honor of being host to student council representatives from the thirteen other state teachers colleges at the annual conference which was held on this campus. Taking place the weekend of November 21-22, the conference was designed to promote a better understanding among the colleges and to provide an opportunity for the discussion of common problems. Panel groups met for a general airing of such subjects as the student activity fund, campus grills, publications and freshman regulations. The visitors were also given an opportunity to explore our campus and attend several social functions. Allister Johnston is to be commended for his efficient engineering of the conference. Throughout the remainder of the year, our council played an active part in student affairs and rights. I S Sealed: Mary Goldbach. Waller Rooso. President. Juno Anderson. Secretary.

Wednesday evenings are S.C.A. nights, nights when a group of students join in real fellowship to enjoy well-balanced, worthwhile programs. The S.C.A. reception for the freshman inaugurated the year with a large, enthusiastic turn-out for the program of games and refreshments. One Wednesday evening, busy members canvassed the campus for the items on a scavenger list. Highlighting the first semester, S.C.A. contributed Christmas gifts for distribution to the children of the Mennonite Home in Millers-ville. The last Wednesday before vacation the S.C.A. went carolling in the village, then returned for a late snack. Those who attended the Easter Dawn Service will remember its impressive simplicity. Among the outstanding speakers, was John Joseph from Bagdad, who described the religious background of his native country. Spiritual Enrichment Weekend was sponsored by all religious organizations on campus. In connection with similar organizations on American campuses, the S.C.A. raised money from contributions by students and faculty to support the World Student Service Fund. A get-together climaxed the year's activities.LUTHERAN CLUB The Lutheran Club, sponsored by Miss Esther E. Lenhardt and advised by Reverend Lebo of Trinity Lutheran Church, has become, in the course of this year, an active campus religious organization. Meetings were held on Wednesday evenings on campus, special meetings being held at Reverend Lebo's home. Millersville was host this year to a conference of Lutheran delegates from other colleges. Social affairs supplemented lectures and discussions, making this a worthwhile year. Frank Auxer. as prosident. organlzod tho mootings o! (he club, assisted by Mary Jacobs.

Meetings were held each Wednesday in the Girls' Day Student Room, one of which was devoted to the formal induction ceremony for new members. The Christmas meeting consisted of an informal party. Catholic Forums held in Lancaster were attended by interested club members throughout the year.PHI SIGMA PI Twice yearly a very unusual performance takes place on front campus. It's the Phi Sigs noisily initiating new members a la the paddle. All this is only a prelude to the formal initiation at which the hapless neophytes defend their lengthy theses on the industrial arts program.

Among the new members were three from the industrial arts faculty, the Messrs. Yard. Eshelman and Shenk. The Iota chapter of Iota Lambda Sigma, a national, professional, industrial arts fraternity, was installed on campus in 1935. Headed by James O'Neill first semester of this year, its second semester officers were Richard Fisher, president; Don Jones, vice-president, and Earl Rice, secretary-treasurer.Miss Lenhardt's right hand crew! Indispensable to the successful dramatic productions on campus, the theatre club figures out all the intricacies of stage setting, lighting and arrangement to provide the right background for the plays. Unseen by the public, the men arrange the transitions in time and location by their unique talents. The Theatre Club carried the action of the senior play from a liner in mid-ocean to a boarding house in Paris, a comparatively simple task. But all the ingenuity and skill of Dick Engard, stage manager, Herb Hurst, his assistant, and Walt McDowell, lighting specialist, were required for the production of Hilton's "Lost Horizon”. Skilled technicians were responsible for the extravaganza of lighting and impressionistic scenery which made the play so effective.

Spell ''Dramatic” backward and you have the name of the organization known as the Citamard Players. The purpose of the club is to study the presentation and production of plays, and to stimulate and arouse interest of the student body as a whole in dramatics. When the call for new members was issued in September, a large group of talented freshmen responded. Thirty-three of them were accepted, bringing the total membership of the club to approximately seventy-five members. On October 17, Citamard's initiation party for its new members was held in the Recreation Hall. Dramatic skits and pantomines were performed by the newcomers to the club. Refreshments and informal dancing, open to the student body, climaxed the affair. Four schools responded when invitations were sent for Citamard's annual High School Drama Night, which was held November seventh. These youthful entertainers presented one act plays, or scenes from larger productions. Citamard members served refreshments after a critic discussed the plays with the casts.Miss Brinklow.

With a liberal sprinkling of fun in a serious purpose, the club got off to a good start in early fall with a get-together party, complete with hot dogs and all the trimmings. At another meeting, the program,. chairman arranged for a movie dealing with exerpts from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" and "Macbeth" to be shown to those attending. At Christmas time, the English Club featured its traditional program of Christmas stories, poems, legends and carol singing. Members of the club contributed their time and talent to make this a memorable program. Miss Emily Snyder of the English department, presented a very thorough and enjoyable discussion of Samuel .Shellaberger's current best-seller, "Prince of Foxes" in a special book review meeting. By analysing the background of the period as well as the highlights of the plot and characters, she introduced the book in relation with similar historical novels. A series of impromptu skits called Fun Night kept the participants and spectators on their toes one memorable evening.

In October the group sponsored a High School Library Club Conference, highlighted by the appearances of Marguerite DeAngeli and Janet Whitney. The conference, the first of its kind, received recognition from the American Library Association. In November, the club officially accepted all freshmen and sophomores interested in Library Science by revising the Constitution. Anyone entering the lobby in December was aware that something special was being held — the annual Christmas Party sponsored by Miss Helen Ganser. As in the past, the group held Sunday night book reviews. Climaxing the year's events, the group journeyed to Kutztown for the third annual library conference.VARSITY SWEETHEARTS ( I It has long been the custom of the Men's Varsity Club to choose representative co-eds who act as Varsity Sweethearts throughout their college years. Selected as sophomores, these girls become the hostesses and guests at club affairs and assist in selling booster tags. Upon graduation, the girls receive a gift from the club. The Sweethearts this year were: Betty Geis-ler and Ann Foster, seniors; Marianne Weicksel, junior; Arlene Snyder and Rose Mae DeVerter, sophomores. The mighty hunters and expert anglers on campus have an organization all their own—the Rod and Gun Club. Amid sympathetic listeners, they swap yarns and compare experiences to their hearts content. Meeting time was also devoted to speakers, exhibits and movies along game preservation and conservation lines. The officers for this year as they appear on the picture: Arthur Reist, Richard Young, president, and George Clapper. ROD AND GUN CLUBPRIMARY CLUH Gay posters announced the monthly meetings of one of the busiest organizations on campus, the Primary Club. One program was devoted to a display of Japanese souvenirs collected by Mr. Jennings while he taught in an Air Force school in Japan. An- other program featured Mrs. Smith's discussion of the art of story-telling. The clubs most extensive activity was the collection of books for a treasure chest for European children. In February a banquet "just for fun" was held at Lehr's. First row: Oelschlagor, Smith. Bonham. Workman. Shirk. Herr, Kurtz. Hopslottor. Buckwaltor. Woavor. Francos. Frost. Connor. Socond row: Arnst.

This scene took place before every football game in the fall as the members supported both the team and their treasury. They also shared half honors with the Girls' Varsity at the game refreshment concessions. Varsity Club, a well known college organization, is made up of the letter-men on campus. The meetings, held in Brooks Hall, are famous for their heated discussions as various athletic and scholastic problems are ironed out. The Varsity Drag, held on November fifteenth, was one of the big semi-formal dances of the year. Attended by many alumni, it featured Andy Kemer's music and very appropriate and colorful football decorations. The Club Varsity, held in the spring, although not so highly publicized, was just as successful. Count on the Varsity men to be both athletic and social successes!BASSLER GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY This year on campus marks the inauguration of a new organization, the Bassler Geographic Society. Students interested in the study of geography banded together to form a club and named it in honor of Mr. Bassler. the college geography mentor. Elmer Bodie was chosen the first president, aided by Tom Roberts, Por-sia Palumbo, and Robert Biemesderfer as cabinet. At their monthly meetings current geographical discoveries and problems were discussed, and a number of speakers were heard. h First row: Nelson. Mr. Basslor. advisor. Palumbo. Bodio. Roberts.

At the end of the year, graduating members receive blazers in recognition of their sports activities. The club joined the Men's Varsity Club this year in manning the concession stands at football games, and later helped sponsor the hilarious Football Team vs. Girls Hockey Team game.THE FOUNTAIN The swifl pace of col iege years reflected upon quiet campus scenes.REFLECTIONS on MUSICCHOIR MEMBERS June Andorson.

Strains of sweet music issuing from room R announced the presence of Millersville's concert orchestra. This group, under the capable direction of Mr. Porter, supplied musical backgrounds for many college activities as well as giving an independent program in the Freshman Chapel. The orchestra provided the overtures and between acts selections for the senior and Citamard plays. In December, augmented by a group of Lancaster musicians, they accompanied the solo and choral singing for the annual presentation of the Messiah. Other activities and commitments throughout the year gave the orchestra a varied and full schedule.mrr= BAND Here comes the band, featuring the obvious talents of Majorettes Irene Genbauife. Doris Leary, "Honey" Hubbard and loan Young, lod by tho long-striding Drum Major. Dick Engard. with Morvin Jacobs and Goorgo Clapper. The band in uniform makes a stirring picture marching by in black and gold. No one could help feeling proud of our band this year. Thanks to Mr. Anderson's leadership and the hard work and cooperation of the members it has become once more a spirited part of campus life. The novel drills and synchronized marching added color and zest to the home football games. One of the attractions for Freshman chapel was the band concert at Christmas time. Everyone joined in the Christmas feeling when the band featured a medley of traditional carols and then accompanied the group singing. All year the band worked hard to make the Spring Concert the ringing success it was. Special numbers, solos and feature selections, as well as delightful arrangements of old favorites and stirring marches thrilled the listening audience.BROOKS HALL The expression of physical vigor, of the fun and excitement of sports.REFLECTIONS » on SPORTSA STURDY TEAM MET Tuesday morning, September third, fifty-eight candidates for the 1947 Marauder football squad were put through their paces in the initial workout. To meet with an early starting schedule, Coaches John Fischer and Bernie Santaniello called practice one week earlier than usual. There were regular workouts morning and afternoon, and blackboard drills each evening. The squad quickly rounded into shape and played two pre-season scrimmages with Lebanon Valley College and Pennsylvania Military Academy. Throughout the four weeks of arduous training every man on the squad was primed for the opening game with Albright at Reading. Pennsylvania. At eight P.M. on Friday, September twenty-seventh, 1947, the Marauders kicked off to open the campaign. The next three hours were probably the most thrilling ever witnessed by Millersville fans. Trailing 13-0 at halftime. Millersville came back and scored twenty exciting points to earn a well-deserved victory. First row: Fischer. Connor. Breitcgan, Nool. McCoach. Wen-glas. Brenner. Smokor.

Still playing the football of its capability, the Marauder squad held Mansfield, 1946 champions. to a scoreless tie. In the next six weeks, bad luck struck the team with disastrous results. Millersville fell before Lock Haven 14-0, and the following week was swamped 37-0 by Bloomsburg. A victory over Rider College on October twenty-sixth kept the fans interested, but successive defeats by Shippensburg and Kutztown all but discouraged even the most faithful. Regardless of past events, the Marauder squad worked hard and literally astounded the football experts by holding a highly favored West Chester eleven to a six to nothing victory on that sea of mud. Millersville rose to its greatest heights during this game and won everyone's acclaim. The record reveals two wins, a tie, and five losses, but the season closed with the Marauders holding and deserving everyone's respect.

The Marauders trailed 21-17 at half time but the La Salle Explorers increased their pace and Millersville v as on the short end of a 63-47 count as the final whistle blew. Another strong aggregation, the Westminster Titans, chalked up a 60-52 victory over the Millersville quintet in a closely contested game. The Marauders showed good form but the highly rated opponents were unable to be stopped by the local courtmen. In Teacher College completition, Kutztown nosed out the Marauders 43-39 as the Golden Avalanche put on pressure to eke out a victory in the final minutes of the game. Millersville then trekked to Mansfield where they dropped a 59-45 decision to the State Teacher Mythical Champions of last year. DUR BASKETEERS SET A A twin pointer by Franny Larson, with one minute of play remaining, enabled the Marauders to defeat the Lock Haven Bald Eagles 42-40. Finding the range, the local basketeers trounced the Bloomsburg Huskies 47-39 to get back into the teacher college race. This victory was followed by an upset over the Shippens-burg Red Raiders by a 42-39 count. In avenge of a defeat handed them by the Titans earlier in the season the Millersville cage men clicked to upset a favored Westminster quintet 64-61 in an overtime period. Ray Dunlap sank a twin pointer with 30 seconds of play remaining typing the coun4 at 55 all to send the game into an extra stanza. The courtmen chalked up their fifth straight victory by displaying effective passing and shooting to down Lock Haven 45-37 for the second win over the Bald Eagles. The nucleus of the team is built around veteran performers from last year's squad which include: Captain Bob Schultz, Mike Pecuich, Ray Dunlap, Ken Depoe, Whitey Korkuch, John Wenglasz, Jim Todd, and Andy Drabick. Newcomers include: Frank Weaver, Jim Mahoney, Don Ross, and Bill Garrett.

"In spring a young man's fancy turns towards thoughts of" . . . baseball. This was true at Millersville; twenty battery aspirants answered Coach Max Bishop's call for the first practice. Brooks Hall became the scene of much activity as fellows unlimbered arms that were unused throughout the long winter. The remainder of the squad reported March 20, 1947, for the first outdoor practice. By April 7th, they were ready for their first game. The Baseball Marauders, captained by Don Jones, won five of the nine games, although the second game with Shippensburg was rained out. Highlighting the season was the double victory over West Chester, the first, a brilliant shut-out by Hal Weirick.GRUNT AND GROAN This year Coach Ted Rupp was greeted by an enthusiastic group of wrestling hopefuls, headed by a nucleus from the 1947 squad. Veteran grapplers returning included Lyman 'Beans'' Weaver, a hundred thirty-six pounder who was honorary captain of last year's highly successful squad, Dick Smoker, ace heavyweight.
