"JOHN LOVES MARY" The play, written by Norman Krasna, has a timely plot, that of a soldier's return to "normal life." John Lawrence, an overseas vet of three years, is welcomed home by the charming Mary McKinley. These two are and have been equally in love with each other. John's life had been saved while he was overseas by his buddy, Fred Taylor. Fred returned home a year before John, and John brought him what should be a happy surprise—the news that he has married Lily, an English girl with wfiom Fred had been desperately in love. However, she could not hope to get to America for years unless as the wife of a G. I. John. He (John), of course, intends to get a quick divorce so that he can marry Mary and Fred—Lily. Little does he suppose that life has gone on for Fred to the point that he is about to become a father nor that senators and mothers and generals and Pentagon buildings can cause so much confusion. Bedlam reigns for an hour and some odd minutes, the curtain closes, a grateful cast attends a lovely reception, and everyone returns to "normal life," tired but happy.DRAMATIS PERSONAE Mary McKinley . .

ShealferWELL-WORN TRAILSJuniors Now that they have completed three years ot college life, the juniors pause to look back upon the many happy activities in which they participated and to glance into the magic ball and see what the future holds. Remember when Millersville became Lower Slobovia? That was the day the Juniors sponsored a Sadie Hawkins Dance and decided which male student had grown the best beard. Brooks Hall was decorated Dogpatch style. The highlight of the year was the Junior Prom, planned by the social committee headed by Dave Davis. With graduation only one year away, the juniors have begun to realize the responsibilities of their chosen profession and are looking forward to studentteaching. The class this year was headed by James Quackenbush, president, assisted by Howard Freeman. Elizabeth Annesley, and Raymond Dunlap. Miss Katherine Griffith and Mr. John Shenk served as class advisors. INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND SECONDARYry. Sophomores With the beginning of school in the fall the sophomores were faced with the task of electing officers to guide them through the year. Ray Roden was made president; Frank Schrack, vice-president; Ruth Bassler, secretary; Frank Petras, treasurer; and Bill Ketterman, historian. Having Miss Mary Elizabeth Dixon and Mr. George Anderson as class advisors, the sophs held a semi-formal, "The Harvest Whirl," the first big dance of the school year. Couples danced to the music of Don Peebles Orchestra in a gym gaily decorated v ith autumn leaves. The sophs also sponsored a talent show in which persons with special abilities participated for prizes. Having completed half of their college life, the sophs are looking forward to their next two years and to their graduation in '51.SECONDARYLIBRARY SCIENCE AND ELEMENTARY Freshmen After the great and dreaded mysteries oi orientation were completed, the freshmen, better known as frosh, realized they formed a vital part of college life. To aid the bewildered frosh in organizing themselves. Dr. Mary Brightbill and Mr. James Koken had been appointed faculty advisors. With their help, the frosh vested the title of president on Richard Freeman, with John Fenster-macher as vice-president, Alice Cogley as secretary, and Dolores Nobile as treasurer. In the sponsoring of an informal get-together, the frosh showed they possess the ingenuity, ambition, and skill which will enable them to have many successful activities during their college days.INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND SECONDARY PENN STATE FRESHMENWE ARE i UNITED IN PLAY Editor ....... ................Robert E.

STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER Charles Austin The bi-weekly, newspaper, the SNAPPER, endeavored to publish a more interesting and a more mature paper in this year of the '49ers. A more professional and outstanding publication was the editor's policy. A more uniform system of headlines, better features, more pictures, and up-to-date news articles aided in maintaining this policy. In order to give more space for complete coverage of campus activities, advertisements were discontinued. An attractive and official looking head replaced the previous one. To bring more news of other colleges, the SNAPPER carried on a vast exchange service and joined the Inter-Collegiate Press. Beginning the year with an undermanned staff, the SNAPPER later pulled from its shell with the aid of new writers. As no credits are given for the time spent in writing for the student publication, members of the staff who had served at least three semesters received award keys. With a thought for the future, the staff completed and had bound the back issues of the SNAPPER. Mr. Louis G. Jennings, advisor, aided the staff cooperatively and efficiently.Page Literary Society Merrill Heigel. Miss Esthor Lcnhardt, Arthur Reist, Anita Badua, Howard Freeman. William Seal. The Page Literary Society is the oldest chartered organization on campus. It was founded May 16. 1885, upon the proposal cf James Pyle Wickersham; it was named Page in honor of the great educator, David Page, first president of Albany State Teachers College, New York. Page began its activity as a debating society and it has continued to futther the interest of students in platform behavior through speech and music. In the past, Page has sponsored many contests in art, play writing, music, spelling bees, and tennis for the purpose of both cultural and physical growth. In recent years, it has promoted two student operas, Ruddigor and Iolanthe; it has purchased the football trophy presented to the untied, unbeaten football team, has furnished the music and speech departments with a recorder and loud speaker system, has contributed regularly to the Metropolitan Opera Company, and has helped to beautify the campus by furnishing bulbs to the Science Department. Page has supported the needs of each department in some material way, as well as regularly purchasing books for the library.J The officers chosen for 1948-49 were Arthur Reist, president; Merrill Heigel, vice-president; Anita Badua, secretary; and Howard Freeman, treasurer. The governing board decided to uphold the custom of monthly meetings, having programs of historic and literary significance as well as entertainment. In fulfilling the purpose of Page—to give the individual a chance to present himself before an audience and to help him gain the poise and self confidence necessary to him as a future teacher—the program this year centered about vocal and instrumental renditions, book reviews, and one-act plays. In October, the society presented a new Bible to the college for use in the chapel. Preceding the vacation, a Christmas program, in which Nelson Freidly, Catherine Shenk, Genevieve Warfel, Joan Graybill, Walter Ullrich, and Gloria Smith participated was rendered in assembly. An art contest open to all students was conducted during the second semester of the year, while the climax of activity was reached with the production of Pinafore, rendered by the music department, as the feature for Page's 94th Anniversary meeting on May sixth. The Page Literary Society has served the college well in the past, and it will endeavor to better that service in the future.

In the fall, Normal tested its ingenuity by trying to sway the Frosh to join it rather than its. rival Page. Normal presented each freshman with an information sheet containing a layout of the college campus and the telephone numbers of both the men’s and women's dormitories. No more time wasted trying to find someone or some place on campusl The large desk blotters distributed by Normal also came in handy. The final campaigning step for Normal was the reception. The Old Gym was the setting for the informal get-together. in October, Normal celebrated its ninety-second anniversary by having the noted author and lecturer, John S. Becker, as its guest speaker. Mr. Becker, who is known for his lectures on literature and economics, presented an address entitled, "The Name and Nature of Poetry." Musical selections were rendered by the choir and a flute soloist. Although leap year comes only once every four years. Normal's Sweetheart Dance comes around every year. This is a turnabout dance; that is, the girls ask the fellows. This year, the dance was held on. February 12. Brooks Hall was delightfully decorated for this occasion.

Study hours, signing in and out, mass meetings. hall meetings, night line-ups, and those always welcome fire drills are all part of living in the dormitory. In addition, housecleaning for Open House, teas. Parents' Day and a "Kid's" Party are some of this year's activities sponsored by the dorm girls. And don't forget that display for Homecoming Day! Many hours of hard labor were put into it. During the Christmas season, the girls were enthusiastic in decorating the lobby and the tree with greens, bells, ribbons, and lights. The governing body of the dorm is composed of two groups: Welfare sets up the rules and Directorate enforces them. This year's officers were: Shirley Frymyer, president; Kathleen Colestock, vice-president; Ruth Lopes, secretary; and Ruth Thiele, treasurer.Men’s Community Association The purchase of a television set for the canteen ranked highest among the achievements of the Men's Community Association this year. It was in the canteen that most of the men students spent their leisure time; it was there they could relax with coke and pretzels, play cards or table tennis, listen to the radio or watch television. Money for canteen equipment was secured through the sale of candy, peanuts, ice cream, pretzels, and soft drinks, and through the sale of displaced garments by Dick Eshelman, the college auctioneer. Dr. Clyde S. Stine, Dean of Men, joined the students in an occasional game of chess or pinochle. Ralph Kraft served as president of the association, Ray Kipp, as vice-president, Charles Korkuch as secretary, and Kenneth Williams as treasurer.

The new snack bar. coke and cigarette machines proved popular additions. After the first hesitant, rather shy meeting of this year's Student Council representatives in the Faculty Lounge, many hot, argumentative sessions took place, but accomplishments were made. The first big obstacle facing the Student Council was the problem of allocating the funds collected by the Student Activity Fee. Sponsoring football games, publishing the Handbook, attending conferences, and sponsoring the Christmas Dance, as well as maintaining a stable student government, were projects of the Council this past year. Kenneth King served as president, Dale Miller as vice-president, Ethelanne Boden as secretary, and Christian Yunginger as treasurer. Faculty advisors were Dean Clyde Stine and Dean Ruby Boggs.OFFICERS Presidont . Vice Presidont Secretary Treasurer Doris Croswell . .

At the Christmas Party (above) the girls enjoyed decorating the tree, singing carols, listening to the talent program, exchanging gifts, and eating tasty refreshments. Cooperation and hard work were rewarded by a successful Cider Pour, Valentine Tea, and Spring Punch. At the final get-together, a picnic, the departing seniors laid upon the underclassmen the responsibilities for keeping the day student room a cheerful place in which to study, play cards, and make friends.

The Lutheran Student Association this year moved forward in fulfilling its purpose. It afforded a means whereby, the Lutheran students on campus could consider and act upon their common problems in the service of lesus Christ, in conformity with the faith of the Lutheran Church of America. The L.S.A. encouraged Bible study, prayer, church attendance, the development of a healthy social life, and the forming of strong Christian friendships. In addition, it aimed to develop a conscious need of Christ in facing modern life and contemporary problems and to build up a national and an international fellowship of Lutheran students. The club was served by Joseph Seitz, president; Kathleen Colestock, vice-president; Sylvia Plouse, secretary, and Franklin Auxer, treasurer. Miss Esther E. Lenhardt was faculty advisor, and Reverend Lebo of Trinity Lutheran Church, Millersville, was spiritual advisor. Left to right, first row: Joseph Pastelak. Josephine Weaver.

Newman Club The Newman Club, an organization of Catholic students on campus, has been affiliated with the National Federation of Newman Clubs since 1941. It has as its purpose the maintenance of a close contact between the Catholic college student and his Church. The bi-weekly meetings, held on Wednesdays in the Girls' Day Student Room, consisted of informal discussions, student reports, and addresses by outside speakers. Informal meetings, as the Christmas Party, were enjoyed. This year, for the first time, the club held a Spiritual Retreat. Reverend Anthony Kane, Lancaster, was the spiritual advisor. Josephine Weaver served as president, Louis Santone as vice-president, and Josephine Newman as secretary-treasurer.Student Christian Association The Wednesday evening meetings of the Student Christian Association offered inspiration, fellowship, strength, and fun to members of the organization. The spirit of the first discussion of friendship influenced the succeeding programs, whether the activity was Bible study, treasure hunting, or Christmas carolling. The S.C.A. distributed Christmas gifts to children in the Mennonite Home in Millersville. The veterans in the Coatesville Hospital received cigarettes and candy from the group. Again this year, the S.C.A. participated in the Spiritual Enrichment Week activities and sponsored the World Student Service Fund project on the campus. In the dormitory, girl S.C.A. members sold candy and Christmas cards. Whether singing around a bonfire, engaging in earnest discussion, enjoying a book report or speaker, seeing instructional films, praying in a sunrise service, or singing favorite hymns, the members of the Student Christian Association had a real need supplied.

Ruth Lopez.Men’s Day Student Association The Men's Day Student Association, the organization on campus for those men that travel to and from school daily, found its rooms in the basement of the Old Gym used more this year than ever before. The recreation consisted of that old standby, pinochle. Also could be heard the 15-2, 15-4, and a pair is six cry of the rabid cribbage player. The rooms contained coke, candy, and cigarette machines for the convenience of those lads v ho would starve or die of thirst rather than walk to the Coffee Shop or to Hill's for refreshments. The radio blared incessantly from eight in the morning until five in the afternoon with the emphasis placed ujx n the lilting hillbilly rhythms of the North Carolina Ridge Runners. Of course, space was provided for those lads who had to complete an assignment before class or who just desired to study. Authorities responsible for the success of the M.D.S.A. are Jerry Brooks and his associates.Delta Phi Eta In the fall five girls v ere seen on campus wearing pelite bows of red and white ribbons. These girls were pledges of Delta Phi Eta, the honorary sorority on campus. Membership is limited to those girls who rate high in scholarship, leadership, character, and service qualities. The pledges were made members of the group in a candlelight induction ceremony following a banquet held at the Spanish Tavern in Quarryville. The cry of "Doughnuts, buy your doughnuts,” became a familiar part of dormitory life this year. Delta Phi Eta girls found the business of selling doughnuts an excellent money-raising enterprise. With the funds obtained through the project, the girls took a trip to Rhodes' Spanish Tavern and carried on other educational activities. Delta Phi Eta held a homecoming of former sorority members on the evening of the Citamard play. The group had dinner in the college dining room and then went to see the play. Meetings were held monthly, concluding with an outdoor picnic. Miss Ruby Boggs, Dean of Women, and Miss Ethel Jane Powell, faculty member, served as advisors to the sorority. Margaret Whitcraft was president; Ann Lester, vice-president; Noreen. Weaver, secretary; Doris Creswell, treasurer, and Glenna Eshelman, historian.lota Lambda Iota Lambda Sigma, a national professional industrial education fraternity, has been on campus since 1935. It exists to give recognition for scholastic attainment in the industrial arts curriculum and to furnish students in the field an opportunity to grow professionally through the bonds of fraternalism. This year the fraternity initiated the largest group of neophytes in its history when it accepted thirty-two men into its ranks. The informal initiation requirements were changed. Each candidate, instead of making a cube to show his skill, now makes a wood carving of the fraternity key, which is in turn given to a graduating brother. Iota played a prominent role in making Homecoming Day inviting to alumni. It made a large sign to "welcome home" former graduates and presented a prize of money to the club making the best display for the occasion. Officers of the fraternity were Robert Zellers, president; Daniel Moyer, vice president; Robert Tuckey, secretary-treasurer; and Clay Givler, historian. (Top) President Daniel W. Moyor, Jr., inspecting the keys made by Iota candidates prior to their Initiation. (Above) Robert Tuckoy. secretary-treasurer: John Ziegler, vice-president; Daniel W. Moyer. Jr., president: Clay E. Givler, historian. Phi Sigma Pi "Assume the angle" was heard again on campus this year as Sigma Chapter, Phi Sigma Pi, initiated another group of neophites into the fraternity. Phi Sig's members were admitted only by invitation. Those men selected for membership were chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and character. There were two initiations; the first consisted of hoodwinking and paddling; the second was formal. In December, Sigma Pi presented to college students and villagers the religious 'motion picture, "King of Kings." Plans were made to secure a club room so that the fellowship associated with fraternities could be enjoyed. Sigma Chapter of Phi Sigma Pi is a national professional fraternity. It was organized at Millersville, May 14, 1934. Officers for '49 were: Henry Huber, president; Daniel Moyer, vice-president; Robert Tucky, secretary; William Loeliger, treasurer; Dean McComsey and Mr. John Shenk, advisors. Upper right: Neophytes stand at altentlon as they face the Board oi Inquisition.Varsity Club The Varsity Club, organized in 1890, has witnessed a gradual membership growth. This year, the club has fifty members. To become a member, an athlete must earn a letter in any one of the major sports. When admitted to the club, he receives a Varsity Key. After he has earned a second letter in the same sport, he is given a varsity sweater. When he leaves the club as a graduating senior, he receives an emblem designating the sport in which he has participated. In the fall, the Varsity Club members waged a campaign to sell booster bullions. The buttons were gold with black lettering reading, "I am a Marauder Booster." The buttons v ere found to be superior to the booster tags of last year. Varsity men interested in social as well as athletic activities, sponsored the Varsity Drag as the climax of Homecoming Day. In semi-formal attire, alumni and students danced to the tunes of Don Peebles' Orchestra. In the spring, the club sponsored the Club Varsity dance. Coach John Pucillo, athletic director, served as faculty advisor to Varsity Club. Assisting him were Coach Fisher (football), Coach Rupp (wrestling), and Coach Bishop (basketball and baseball).

Industrial Arts Theater Club The Industrial Arts Theatre Club, comprised of men enrolled in the Industrial Arts curriculum, is the counterpart of Citamard and is, therefore, responsible for the design and construction of the stage settings and properties used in the college productions. The club has completed seventeen years of service to the school and to Citamard. This year, it designed and built settings for "John Loves Mary," the production by the senior class, and for Citamard's "Death Takes a Holiday." For high school drama night and for monthly Citamard plays, the Theatre Club was in action. It met the challenges of unusual settings with skilled ability. To improve the stage, the club built and erected a new overhead lighting board. By putting up new benches and lights, the club improved the make-up facilities. Warren Miller served as stage manager, Harold Seltzer as treasurer, William Bricker as secretary, and Miss Esther E. Lenhardt as advisor.Citamard Spell “Dramatic'' backwards, and you have Citamard, an organization of young thespians interested in drama—in acting and in directing. This club boasts a membership of seventy persons, ten of whom were admitted after try-outs in the fall. At the initiation in December these ten actors and actresses used their dramatic talents to entertain other Citamard players. After the initiation, the program of dancing and refreshments was opened to the student body. Meetings were held in the chapel the last Tuesday evening of each month. At the meetings one act plays were presented, and business was transacted. Officers were Walter Ullrich, president; William Seal, vice-president; Ruth Lopez, secretary; and Ethelanne Boden, treasurer. They, with the excellent guidance of the advisers, Miss Esther Lenhardt and Miss Rebekah Shaeffer, concluded another act .of the pageant of Citamard.Death Takes a Holiday, given by the Citamard Players on February 15 and 16, was expertly coached by Miss Rebekah Shaeffer.

When Dr. L. S. Lingenfelter assumed the role of advisor to the English Club this year, he stated, "The club must function as a living organization, or we will give it a glorious funeral.'' The club moved into action, providing basic programs designed to satisfy all students interested in the appreciation of the English language. A get-together party with hot dogs and all the trimmings opened the year. The club held its traditional Christmas program, including carol singing, reading of Christmas stories, refreshments, and a visit from Santa Claus. A movie depicting the life of Thomas Grey was shown. Mr. L. G. Jennings gave club members an insight into the problems which English teachers must face in school situations. Officers of the club who, aided by committees, prepared the educational and social programs of the year were Florence Lehman, president; Alice Wagner, vice-president; Genevieve Warfel, secretary; and Jane Hollinger, treasurer.Primary Club The Primary Club, the organization for those students interested in Kindergarten-Primary work, acquaints the students who are teaching or will be teaching with the problems they will encounter in the profession. At one of the early meetings of the year, a new constitution was drawn up. With cooperation and faithful attendance, the club enjoyed a variety of programs—a lecture by Miss Jenkins on the subject of progressive education, a panel discussion on the problems of student teachers, story-telling, movies, a fashion show, and a banquet. The Christmas program, an entirely social gathering, consisted of a piano recital and the reading of "The Littlest Angel." Lurene Frost served as president, Eleanor Oelschlager as vice-president, Emma Lou Nist as secretary, and Shirley Weaver as treasurer. Miss Charlotte Good was advisor.Members oi the Library Club spent many hours working in the college library. As evidenced by the picture, other students also made use of the library facilities. Library Science Club « A party held in the Library Science room to welcome back old members and to greet those freshmen interested in the library opened the year's activities. In monthly meetings through discussions of library work, problems, and news, club members sought to develop a greater understanding of the relationship between the library, the public school and the community. In October, the club sponsored the Second Annual High School Library Club Conference. An increasing interest in this conference was shown by the attendance of more schools this year than last year. The club was host to the Fourth Annual Eastern Pennsylvania School Library Conference in April. It was attended by school librarians and interesting personalities in the library field. As in previous years, the club sponsored a series of Sunday evening book reviews. President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer OFFICERS ............ . Mary Jacobs ................

Future Teachers Of America With leadership training as their objective, the James Pyle Wickersham Chapter of the Future Teachers of America actively promoted this year a program designed for student participation in this phase of their professional training. Their biggest undertaking was the sponsorship of a state conference of FTA chapters for the purpose of organization on a statewide basis. This meeting led to the organization of the Pennsylvania Future Teachers of America. Mr. Joseph Torchia and Mr. William Duncan, sponsors, were instrumental in the planning of this conference, and were largely responsible for its success. Members worked untiringly on the various, phases of the program and as a result gained valu- able experience. Approximately two hundred delegates from colleges, universities, and high schools throughout the state participated in panel discussions, elected state officers, adopted a constitution, and made plans for the next convention to be held at Shippensburg STC. Miss Alice Wagner, member of our chapter, was elected the first state secretary. Mrs. Wilda Freebern Faust, National Secretary of the FTA, served as the principal speaker and as a consultant throughout the affair. Local programs included the writing and adoption of a constitution, lectures, interviews, discussions and the sponsorship of the annual high school senior day.First Row: Wade Brightbill.

Graduating members of the club who have met specified standards receive a black blazer which bears the insignia of the club. Social contacts, good sportsmanship, and group loyalty are found among the club members. As previously, the girls' club joined the Men's Varsity Club in operating the concession stands at football games. The girls also helped to sell programs and to usher. When each organization prepared a display to welcome back the alumni on Homecoming Day, the Girls' Varsity Club placed a reproduction of its insignia on the fence facing the tennis court. It also invited former club members to attend a dinner given in their honor. During the second semester the club took over the check room at dances.

Girls’ Varsity Club The Bassler Geographic Society, organized last year, encouraged the study and appreciation of geography. By acting as a clearing house for the exchange of ideas and experiences between students and authorities of geography, it functioned as an additional source of information and education for students majoring and minoring in the field of geography. This program was accomplished by lectures, discussions, and movies. Mr. H. M. Bassler, in whose honor the Society was named, acted as advisor to the group. Nelson Adams served as president, Wade Brightbill as vice-president, Franklin Auxer as secretary, and James Bom as treasurer.Realizing the need for some professional organization among the Industrial Arts students, the members of the Industrial Arts Department in 1932 organized the Industrial Arts Society. The aim of the society is to establish professional contact with men in the field and good fellowship among the students. It is through the Service, Program, and Social Committees that the society has been able to function. This year many interesting and educational projects such as movies, lectures, panels, and discussions were presented for the benefit of the college in general.

Band A peppy and enthusiastic group of band members returned to school in the fall prepared for a hard football season. The smartstepping, streamlined Marching Band added attraction and spirit to the games. With harmonious and peppy rhythms as a background, the band performed difficult and colorful drills with precision. Two concerts were given by the Band in January, one to upperclassmen and one to freshmen. At the time the TOUCHSTONE goes to press, the Band is preparing for its Spring Concert. Behind the scenes of successful performances were many hours of hard practice by the band members, the able direction of Bandmaster, George Anderson, the student direction of Wilbur Savage, and the secretarial work of Dorothy Morgan.Done no r CHOIR MEMBERS Bard, Belly Weicksel, Marianno Keneagy, Henry Bassler, Ruth Wolfe.

Many tiring hours were spent in rehearsals where endless repetitions led to skilled harmony and perfection. Under the capable direction of Mr. Melzer Porter, the orchestra members worked tirelessly and faithfully in adding charm and color to campus activities. For the presentation of the Messiah by the college choir, the orchestra acted as accompanist. It rendered the overtures and between-the-acts music for the senior and Citamard plays. Students in the orchestra enjoyed the friendliness of the group and the means of giving expression to their musical talents.WE’VE TAKEN MANYSPORTING CHANCES nmm mim gmm HHItWe went through The first call for candidates was issued August 30 and fifty-five reported for the early training. Gone were such stalwarts as Hubie Peters, Dick Reese, and Mike Wenglasz, but to fill their shoes were some fast-stepping boys from the surrounding counties. Among the fifty-five that reported were thirty from last year's squad, eighteen of them lettermen. The squad was under the tutelage of Coach John Fischer and his capable assistant, "Bemie" Santaniello. Pre season injuries cropped up during practices and, as a result, some of the boys were placed on the less active status. "Copper" Kraft, trainer, was charged with the correction of such injuries. The 1948 edition of the Marauder grid team opened under the lights at Columbia with a good representation of students and fans. The team struck a lightning-like thrust in the third play of the contest for a quick lead over East Stroudsburg. However, Stroudsburg scored in the second and third periods and the game ended 137. The next game saw the Red Raiders of Ship-pensburg, who were favored to top the Marauders, proceed to out-man and out-play the hapless Black and Gold. Again the chapel bell did not toll and the Marauders were still rarin' for their first victory. Journeying to Lock Haven for a night tilt the Marauders again returned with the short end of the stick. The Marauders then missed in their attempt to subdue the favored Bloomsburg Huskies in their meeting in Gladfelter Stadium. Playing before a good-sized homecoming crowd, Millersville earned a hard-fought 14-6 decision from the visiting Kutztown eleven as "Gabe" Geiger made two long runs of 90 and 70 yards each. The Fischer-men were slow in the fiist half and didn't show much spirit. It was in the closing minutes of the second period that the Kutztown Avalanche scored their only tally after they unleashed a splendid aerial attack. With improved form and vigor the Marauders scored twice in the third. Rider College, West Chester, and California all took the measure of the Black and Gold with scores of 13-6, 33-13, and 31-13, respectively. (Firs! row) Workingor, Wagner. Farka . Schmidt. Heckard.

The finale, a 65-64 overtime victory in which our arch rivel, West Chester, was squeezed out in Brooks Hall, will long be remembered. From a twenty game schedule the Bishop men turned in eleven wins, garnering 1058 points. Whitey Korkuch, with a total of 254 points in 20 games, was high scorer, averaging 12.7 points per game, with Depoe, 186, and Pecuich, 177, following. The Marauder schedule on the road which opened with Geneva, Westminster and LaSalle Colleges proved too tough for the boys, though all games were hard fought. The Explorers of LaSalle College, one of the nation's leading ball clubs, found unexpected trouble with Bishop's zone defense which enabled the boys to lead LaSalle most of the first period, falling behind 25-23 at the half. Reserve strength and speed stopped the Marauders 65-52 even though they out-scored the varsity and held 6' 9" Larry Foust to six points. Whitey Korkuch took honors with 21. The team hit its stride and every man was a standout in the 66-46 conquest of E-Town. The Marauders held Keath, one of the leading scorers in the country, to ten points.The squad will miss stellar Captain Mike Pecuich, twice selected as all-state teachers college guard, whose adroit ball handling and ability to set up plays was the key to the team's success. Also finishing his last season will be Johnny Wenglasz, steady, reliable forward. (Back row. loft to right) Todd. Bernhardt, Depoe, Capt. Pecuich. lor-kuch. Weaver. Coach Bishop.

Home 12 Shepherd College Baseball, the king of them all, reared its head on Millersville's campus as the local nine prepped to meet some tough competition. Returning to the diamond for the Marauders were seven varsity holdovers from the 1948 season. Comprising this group are: William Cushman, Kenneth Dombach, Raymond Dunlap, James Todd, George Vengrin, Harold Weirich, and John Wenglasz. Coach Max Bishop contends that the outlook is fair for the 1949 season. "What v e lack in long ball hitting," says the diamond mentor, "we will have to make up in consistent hitting." Again this year he hopes to rely on the pitching arm of "Hal" Weirich and the consistent hitting of Jim Todd to put the needed punch in the local’s attack.WE HAD AN IMPRESSIVE RECORD TED RUPP Coach Since the inception of intercollegiate wrestling at M.S.T.C. two years ago, the teams of Coach Ted Rupp had compiled the record of thirteen consecutive victories. Twenty-five candidates, eager to keep this rather phenomenal win streak intact, reported to Coach Rupp for the forty-nine season. Heading the list of returning lettermen was Captain Lymon "Beans" Weaver, 136-pound member of the original 1946-47 team. Other lettermen included Bob King, 175 pounds, an undefeated sophomore, and Bob Miller, a junior, at 121 pounds. Among the freshmen aspirants who proved their weight in gold were Jerry Shervcmik, Bob Herbert, Don Bissinger, Eddie Barnes, Pete Yasenchak, and Jerry Barger. The 1949 mat edition opened the current wrestling season as they downed Gallaudet College matmen by a 29-3 score. For their fifteenth and sixteenth consecutive wins they overwhelmed their less experienced opponents Shippensbu g and East Stroudsburg Teachers. The Marauders went on to make a clean sweep of Wilkes College and Kings College for their 17th and 18th wins. At 18 straight an experienced, unbeaten Lock Haven wrestling team snapped the victory string by a convincing but hard-earned 19 to 9 count. By virtue of three decisions the Marauders remained within striking distance of the Bald Eagles until the concluding bout, in which Dick Smoker fell prey to the brute strength of his 230-lb. adversary, John Mullins. Victories 19, 20, and 21 saw M-ville down Clarion, Indiana, and West Chester S.T.C.'s by nominal margins. To climax a highly successful season the Marauders captured the seventh annual State Teachers College Wrestling Tournament at Brooks Hall as they took four first places in the finals to dethrone Lock Haven, the 1948 champions. This year's win by the Marauders was particularly impressive as it marked the end of a six-year domination by Lock Haven and that this was the third year of collegiate wrestling at Millersville. As the time for the finals approached, Millersville had six out of its eight entries still in the running. Final team scoring for the tournament was as follows: Millersville 37, Lock Haven 35, East Stroudsburg 12, Indiana 12, Edinboro 11, West Chester 11 and Clarion 6.

The "Racketeers" hampered by bad weather had little time to practice, but they made use of every available opportunity to loosen their arms. Rounding out the squad are the following men: Carl Bernhardt, Richard Cams, Robert Gerhart, David Gould, "Chuck" Emery, Marvin Levin, and Robert Rankin. At this writing the Marauders have scored their initial victory over Lincoln University, 5-2. Wins were scored by Captain Huber, Brightbill, Moyer and Gould in singles while Emery and Gould combined to take the first of the doubles. Fortunately, for Lincoln U. the second was called because of rain. SCHEDULE April 5 Lincoln University Away April 22 Shippensburq S. T. C. Homo April 27 Kutztown S. T. C. Away May 3 Shippensburq S.

From the initial response to the call lor candidates Miss Griffith selected a squad numbering thirty players including such veterans as Alice Anderson, Naomi Madlem, Amelia Miller. Barbara McLeod, Shirley Myers, Eleanor Oeschlager, Miriam Walker and Mary Workman. "Namar," a turtle, was adopted by the team as mascot. "Namar" is a derivation from the names of co-captains Naomi Madlem and Mary Workman. During the 1948 season the M.S.T.C. team enjoyed the fruits of victory two times and tasted the sting of defeat once. In four contests the team had to be contented with draws. Moravian College for Women and Gettysburg were decisively defeated, 8-1 and 6-2, respectively. Meeting West Chester on the hockey field for the first time, Millersville lost its first and only game during the past two seasons, 5-1. Two games with Lock Haven and a game with Lebanon Valley College were deadlocked, 2-2, while in a free scoring game, the Lancaster County Field Hockey Association was held to a 4-4 tie. Millersville was represented by a junior varsity team for the first time this season. Although the team could win only one game and lost five, it is anxiously looking forward to next year.

Bragg, Coach Dixon.Sink many a basket With the 1948-49 basketball season long gone but far from forgotten, Millersville's "Queens of the Court" can look back on a season marked by three wins and six defeats. Though this record may not seem too impressive, the whole story can only be told by those of us who saw the girls lose some heart-breakers like the Lock Haven game. The girls won two games from Lebanon Valley and one from Elizabethtown while losing two games to Lock Haven, and one to Gettysburg, Albright and Elizabethtown. Ruth Bragg and Peggy Whitcraft proved to be able co-captains for this year's squad. Co-captain Bragg was high scorer for the team with an average of ten points per game. She scored 25 points in one game against Lock Haven, but even this didn't bring M.S.T.C. the victory. Scoring honors were also earned by Ulsh, Fretz and Vogel. Hats off to the coaches, Miss Griffith and Miss Dixon, who did a fine job and are looking forward to a better season next year with sixteen returning lettermen. A word of appreciation should also be given for the fine work of the managers: Jane Worth, Carolyn County, Lee Bortner, and Alden Cheek. (First row) Warner. Fretz. Ulsh. Bragg. Whitcraft. Patterson.
