STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE MILLERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIADEDICATED TO
THE TEACHING PROFESSION
Four years of teacher preparation: Do we know now why we want to teach? Before entering the profession we should be clear in our thinking. What do we expect from teaching? What arc we willing to give in return?
Teaching means preparing youth for a place in his world, not ours, by observing constant changes and attempting to see the youth's world as he secs it. Is there another profession so tuned to progress, forward living and thinking?
From teaching comes an enriched family life, free time to develop interests and leadership, constructive and creative work with young people, an easy access to self improvement and worthwhile associations both professional and social. No other type of work offers this combination of opportunities found in education.
With these our sincere beliefs, we humbly dedicate this record book to our chosen profession, a direct path to a full and creative life.

To the class of 1950:
Among the most cherished of man's possessions are his memories. Time and circumstance work startling changes, separate the dearest of friends, and conspire to lead us into strange places. Despite the best in-tentioned plans the associations formed during college years slowly but surely grow dimmer with the passage of time until they come to live only in memory.
This book will be your one best means of keeping alive in your garden of memories the voices and the faces of those who today are your constant companions, your closest friends, your trusted counselors. Its value will increase with the lengthening of the years.
To the graduates of 19 0, your friends at Millcrsvillc offer warm congratulations and follow you with every good wish for happiness and success wherever you may go.

The port of graduation—we drop anchor at last; and as wc do so, wc pause a moment to think what college has meant to us.
Four years! They seemed a bewildering eternity to four hundred confused freshmen poised on the brink of our chosen journey on the sea of college experience. Even more bewildering was our first introduction to this college life—initiation! But those days of square meals, sun dial prostrations, and that insufferable regalia were not to last forever. Smoother sailing lay ahead.
To steer our course mid the treacherous waters of freshman Jays, we chose Laird Robertson, Doc Savage, Penny Shepherd. and Chuck Benshetlcr.
There was the excitement of our first big college football games, pep rallies, ana Homecoming Day. College dances beckoned us, and even we frosh executed our own dance, "The Harvest Hop," rustic in theme and decorations, and rollicking in atmosphere.
May Day brought us the color and spirit of the Mardi
Gras—indeed, the glamour that we had hoped and dreamed we should find at college. Inevitably, and less glamorously, the close of the year brought us also our first college finals, an experience we hesitate to describe. Sad we were to see that first year draw to a close.
Three years! They seemed to prophesy much hap-pincss, for we were now orientated to college life and eager to make the most of the journey undertaken but a year before. Captained by Walt Ullrich, Chuck Bcnshetler, Mary Workman, and Arlene Snyder, we set sail for sophomore joys.
How important we felt as we watched the lowly frosh suffer the agonies of initiation! How eagerly we joined in helping them to feel its most poignant elements!
Our first orientation to our chosen profession awaited us in this year, the indescribable ecstacies of playground duty. Never shall wc fail to recall the five minute lunches and perpetual indigestion that accompanied it.
Two years! Where did they go? With Jim Quack-enbush, Hank Freeman, Betsy Anncsley. and Ray Dunlap at the helm, we set forth upon the third lap of our travels.
This year brought us joys that were not only academic in nature. Who could forget the night when Daisy Mac descended into our midst with Li'l Abner in tow, all because Sadie Hawkins Day had given the fair sex that glorious opportunity of annexing the man of her choice for a gala evening in Lower Slobbovia? Who could forget that great night when our wrestlers became state champions? Do you remember the Junior Prom ?
One year—it seemed unbelievable that one year only lay before us. We caught ourselves nostalgically wishing, even as we looked forward to graduation, that we might begin our trip all over 3gain. We called upon Dale Miller, Joe Seitz, Mary Workman, and Glenna Eshlcman to pilot us to our journey's end and entrusted to Dave Davis the responsibility of compiling the events enshrined in our ship's log within the pages of the TOUCHSTONE.
Wc knew the thrill that glows behind the footlights as we joined a bewildered Belinda in her adventures at "Ramshackle Inn.” To Miss Lenhardt we raise our hands in salute for guiding the cast to a successful performance.
Wc experienced again the festive joys of May Day—the "Big Time." All too soon the arrival of announcements, caps and gowns, and those final finals told us that the end was near. Our Senior Prom brought us to the crest of social happiness.
And now it has come—graduation day. We drop anchor at the end of our journey realizing that this is not an end, but a beginning. For a new- voyage begins tomorrow, a voyage upon the sea of life. It is our hope that as we embark upon it, we may lift anchor again with proper attitudes and sufficient knowledge to say with conviction, "We are ready—full speed ahead!"SENIOR CLASS ADVISORS
Miss Katherine Griffith Mr. John B. Shenk
Four years in college pass swiftly. An incoming class develops into the graduating group before we are fully aware of the great wealth of personalities involved. Friendships are formed that enrich daily living, and many created here will continue far into the future, despite time and distance.
Many different kinds of young people are brought together on a college campus. The healthy exchange of ideas, wholesome personal contacts, participation in dramatic, musical, and athletic activities, and the enrichment of experiences on social, spiritual, scientific, and professional levels tend to develop balanced people who can occupy worthy positions in a democratic society.
We, your class advisors, thank you for the pleasant classroom and campus activities you permitted us to enjoy with you. Serving as teachers of interested and interesting students is an enjoyable experience. Participating with them in appropriate out-of-class programs is a pleasure.
We sincerely hope that you profited immeasurably by your college career. We wish you the maximum of success as active, interested, and thinking teachers in your respective fields, and as liberal minded, democratically inclined citizens of your country and of the world. May you take with you and spread to your students and others with whom you come in contact those lessons of freedom, responsibility, equality, and understanding you had the opportunity to learn from the personnel and program of this college.JAY A.

To be included in Who’s Who, a student must possess a combination of qualities which testify to his contributions to the college. Among these, character, leadership, scholarship, and potentialities, are the four main criteria upon which final judgment is based.
An edition is published yearly, disclosing the names of students from American colleges and universities, who have been chosen to represent their particular schools.

This mystery farce in three acts by George Baston finds an elderly, rather eccentric spinster buying by chance a ramshackle inn, headquarters of a hijack liquor gang. Belinda Pryde’s life savings go to Mame Philips in exchange for "Ye Olde Colonial Inn" but Belinda buys more than she bargained for.
The seemingly inconspicuous handyman Patton shows through his furtive actions that he is the head of a large liquor ring. Unknown to Belinda, F.B.I. agents and members of the gang both have registered as guests which sets the scene for action that comes so fast as to be confusing. Trunks, closets and safes are filled with bodies and the air is filled with laughter as Miss Pryde begins to realize the truth. A touch of romance adds to the confusion and precipitates another murder but dear old Belinda is gay through it all.
Sowing the seeds of dissension among the gang and wielding a wicked bottle, our heroine clears the stage of hijackers and soon has the situation under control. The play's surprising yet humorous ending seemed a fitting conclusion to an enjoyable evening of drama.UNDERCLASSMEN

Entering the third year at M.S.T.C., the junior class reelected Raymond Roden, president; John Michalwicz, vice president; Ruth Bragg, secretary; and Barbara McLeod, treasurer.
Ever since this group entered Millersviilc, they have proven themselves a hard-working and interested class.
Much admiration is extended to the junior class for its many contributions, both educational and purely recreational. !
This year, early in the Erst semester, The Annual Country Fair was held by the class. The old gym with its colorful array of balloons, fresh hay, and streamers
really looked like the location of a good old-fashioned |
barn dance. Pies, cakes, and jellies were give away to lucky students, and plenty of entertainment was on hand.
Later in the year, another annual affair which was introduced into M.S.T.C. by this class was held, that being the Talent Night Show. As we look into the history of the junior class, we find that many worthwhile contributions have been made which were of benefit to the student body as a whole.

Facing their second year in college, members of the sophomore class were determined to make this year even more successful than the last. Their first big social event of the year, was the Autum Cruise, a dance which was held in Brooks Hall. The gymnasium was decorated with nautical trappings which created a shiplike atmosphere. At this affair, Glenna Reese was crowned queen of the good ship. "U.S.S. Millersville."
Another big event of the year, which this class sponsored was a 'Movie-Nite' held in the gym. One full length feature and a number of short subjects and comedies were shown. After this the chairs were removed and the audience danced for the remainder of the evening.
These affairs were made possible only through the capable direction of the class officers who were: John Plymyer, president; Steve Palkovic, vice president; Virginia Hampton, secretary; and Joyce McCrancy, treasurer. The chairman of the social committee was Doris Brown, while Eules Philips headed the publicity group. Elizabeth A. Falkenstine was chairman of the decoration committee.
Dr. Mary A. Brightbill and Mr. James Koken are the class advisors.
The class is looking forward to the next two years at M.S.T.C. when they' will be able to plan more and better events.

Wipe that smile off your face, Frosh, this is a serious matter. It took a while for us to realize that this would initiate us into the friendly atmosphere surrounding our new life. After four weeks of orientation, we were accepted as a vital part of the college life on campus, and, believe it or not, the upperclassmen became our friends!
After much campaigning and picture advertisement, we held our class elections The offices were entrusted to Roddy O'Day, president; Robert Morrison, vice-presi-
dent. Anne Cochrane, secretary, and Rebecca Frantz, treasurer.
Spring fever acted as an incentive for our class, and we sponsored a dance in March. It was the highlight of our first year of college.
This has been a happy year for all of us, in spite of orientation and studying for finals. To our Penn State freshmen, we extend a sincere wish for their success in the future.

The Varsity Club was organized in 1890, and has been welcoming new, broad-chested male athletes to its ranks ever since. Those beautiful black sweaters with the yellow M s" on them weren’t received by sitting on a bench, either. The sweaters arc given to those men who have earned two letters in the same sport. When the huskies are admitted to the club, they receive the Varsity Key.
Besides making up the teams of the many college sports, the athletes are active in other ways. During football season no one escapes from that question, "Have
you got a Booster tag, Mac?' It is also from the Varsity Club that you buy all those programs of athletic events that you attend.
One of the highlights of the group’s activities this year as always, was the Varsity Drag given on the eve-ning of Homecoming Day. The Varsity Sweetheart was also honored at the gala dance.
But all these activities couldn't have been accomplished as they were if it hadn’t been for the capable direction of Dale Miller as president. He was assisted by Alan Brace, vice-president; William Cushman, secretary; and Melvin Hunter, treasurer. The faculty advisers arc Coaches Pucillo, Fisher, Rupp, and Bishop.

Each year one representative is elected to the Student Council from every class, the M.C.A., the W.C.A., the M.D.S.A., the W.D.S.A., and a general election is held for the president and two students-at-Iarge. These students are obliged to serve, to the best of their ability, the entire student body in the student government.
In order to acquaint the student body with their Student Council, the first dance of the year, ' The Council Bounce," was sponsored by this organization.
Student Council's big project is the Old Gym. Those who have been here several years may vouch for the many improvements made in the Old Gym. This year.
new tables, chairs, cigarette stands, and entertainment facilities were added. Much has been done by the Student Council to improve the general appearance and serviceability of this building.
Other services offered to the student body by the Student Council arc the yearly publication of the ''Handbook," sponsoring of the annual Christmas Dance, disbursement of allocations, and general discussion and action upon important matters arising in the administration of student government.
Officers of Student Council this year were: Henry Huber, president; David Davis, vice-president; Ethel-anne Boden, secretary; Lena Bortncr, treasurer.

MEMBER INTERCOLLEGIATE PRESS
Of all the organizations on the campus, the Snapper, school newspaper, probably distinguished itself the most during the past year. Coming out with very little of the style evident in previous years, the new Snapper made innovations for which both students and faculty had high praise. The first great metamorphosis occurred last year when Bill Kettcrman and Bill Pctru were appointed coeditors-in-chief. In this capacity, they have worked out the newspaper policies now in practice.
The most obvious and eye-catching of the recent changes is that of the newspaper makeup. The shiny paper used in past years was relinquished, and, at present, the Snapper is run off on regular newsprint. The is-
sues are also larger, and a new and more attractive head has replaced the old one, adding much to its general appearance. Other policies have changed also. Headlines are varied and unusual, catching the attention easily. Better journalistic styles have been employed in stories.
The Snapper is sponsoring a drive to bring a foreign student to M.S.T.C., offering him a year’s free tuition, which is to be paid by the student body at large. Thus far, some funds have been raised. In February, the Snapper staff sponsored a show entitled. The Filthy February Follies,” the proceeds of which went to this cause.THE 1950
"Ye gads!” At last, we have finished four years of college, four years of happy, not to be forgotten times. The earnest wish of the staff is that the 1950 Touchstone will help to hold and bring back to you unchanged those priceless memories of life on campus.
Plans can not be executed, deadlines met, and a successful yearbook published without willing cooperation, so the editor takes this opportunity to thank the staff for their interest and initiative.
Special thanks to the Art Staff who did a good job on paste ups, a rather routine but costly job which most staffs leave to the publisher.

Beginning its ninety-fourth year on the Millersville campus, Normal greeted the freshmen in September. The entertainment for the Normal "Get Acquainted Party" was the Gegirgs-Trachtcn Verein "Edelweiss." a singing and dancing group from Reading. Dancing and refreshments also shared the spot light of the evening. This program was to secure the approval of the new students on campus and lure them from Normal's rival, the Page Literary Society.
The Normal Anniversary also provided entertainment for the college in October. The Negro chorus from Chcyney State Teachers College, under the direction of Dr. C Leslie Pinckney Hill, gave a concert in the college chapel.
Normal held their annual Sweetheart Dance. T his is the bright star in Normal's social calendar and was held in the month of hearts—February. For this lovely dance the girls gathered all their courage and invited the boys.
The finale on the Normal calendar was the college band concert under the direction of the guest conductor, Guiseppc Creatore. Mr. Creatorc is a man of international fame and he provided a fine program for the college.The climax of the Sweetheart Dance was the crowning of the queen—Barbara McLeod!

This is the first year since 18 5, when Page was founded, that membership in one of the literary societies wasn't required—yet Page kept up its membership to what it's done in the past. It still remains an active-organization regardless of its age. Under the adviser-ship of Miss Esther Lenhardt, Page has contributed much to the welfare of MSTC.
Many varied and interesting programs were offered to the college this year. Two of them will probably not be forgotten for years to come. The first was a gentle satire on the opposing society's freshman welcome. Who doesn't remember the "Etruscan Hoop-Lo Dancers" who invaded the Old Gym that night? The second was the"RICH IN TRUTH”

big variety show "The Naughty November Gaieties." Held in the chapel, this new type of show on the campus was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Other entertainments throughout the year included the movie "Great Expectations," a Christmas program at one of the Wednesday chapel services, featuring all-Freshman talent, and a musical talent night.
William Seal, president of the literary society, did a good job of supervising and guiding the many activities of the year. He was helped by equally capable officers such as John Flat ley, vice-president; Esther Clay, secretary; Catherine Shenk, treasurer; and William Ketter man, historian.

"Curtain Time!" How those two words bring a thrill to the hearts and a lump to the throats of would-be actors and actresses pursuing their love of drama in M.S.T.C.'s Citamard Club.
This year’s club has seen the fulfillment of things long hoped for, especially in its new practice of inviting the entire student body to witness its monthly one-act productions and inviting them to share their thoughts and opinions on the plays presented through the use of rating cards. This new feature of Citamard enables the club to broaden its influence, attract potential talent, and receive helpful suggestion for improvement of its program.
President Bill Ketterman planned a busy, happy year for his co-lovers in dramatics, and it has been just that. From the time approximately one dozen slightly terrified new members endured the rigors of the most unique initiation antics in Citamard history until the curtain went down on the last one-act production of the 1949-50 season, life in Citamard was gay, glad, and dramatically delightful.
In addition to monthly business meetings and accompanying dramatic productions, Citamard sponsored the annual High School Drama Night in November, with
four high schools presenting one act plays or excerpts from full length productions with several other high schools being in attendance. After a critic discussed the plays with the individual casts, Citamard members entertained the groups informally in the dormitory reception rooms.
As an additional contribution, Citamard brought to the college campus, once each semester, an outstanding dramatic artist who presented his program for the entire student body.
A field trip was taken in the spring to Hedgerow Theatre for both appreciation and inspirational purposes.
By far the greatest event of the year, however, was the never-to-be-forgotten spring production of "The Admirable Crichton" with its all Fnglish cast. Who among us can forget the glorious moments of this Barrie masterpiece. And who among us can forget the untiring and self-sacrificing efforts of a most marvelous coach, Miss Rebckah Sheaffer.
Bill Ketterman was ably assisted in his direction of the club this year by Ethclannc Bodcn, vice-president; Marilyn Young, secretary; and Eules Phillips, treasurer. These four, guiding the Citamard ship of state, for their fellow shipmates, wish to launch a vote of thanks and appreciation to Miss Esther Lcnhardt, whose loyalty and service to the club will be remembered always by all those who participated in its activities.WOMEN’S COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Reading clockwise are WCA’s officers: Treasurer, Rulh Lopes; Vice-President, Shirley Younj;; President, Eleanor Oclschlager; Secretary, Jeanette Huber.
Hurry girls! Let's don't be late after such a big date! It's that midnight snack to top off a long, hard day!
Dormitory life—that never-to-be-forgotten experience of college days that we shall remember always! Even the mass meetings, fire drills, study hour regulations, and limited permissions will seem wonderful to us when we look back upon them in future years. And the little gab sessions in one another's room, which formed a vital part of our college education, will lx- the more dear because they will be memories tinged with true meaning.
The administration of the intricacies of dormi-tory living at Millersville is entrusted to the W.C.A., which in addition to taking care of rules and regulation, sponsors a busy program of activities throughout the year.
September brought the traditional Big-Little Sister Party, a special occasion in the junior girls' program of acclimating the new freshman girls to life at Millersville. In October W.C.A. sponsored a tea on Parent's Day, in order that the visitors might join in the atmosphere of friendliness and cordiality that is typical of M.S.T.C. Homecoming Day brought a unique display to greet the alumni, set up on the balcony above the main entrance to the dormitory. Pumpkins and corn stalks were arranged on the balcony, to form a background for a huge black cloth sign, upon which golden autumn leaves formed the welcome, W.C.A. GREETS YOU, in the school colors.
MEN’S COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Men living in the college dormitory are members of the Men's Community Association, an organization through which they reap many benefits. The pride of the M.C.A. is the "canteen" located in the cver-famous "dungeon,'' a popular gathering place in the evening. A television set, bought by the organization, is the main attraction. However, other forms of entertainment are offered, such as dart boards, table tennis, cards, and eating facilities where ice cream, candy, pretzels, soft drinks, and other food is accessible.
Through the sale of refreshments and through a yearly auctioning of unclaimed laundry, the
M.C.A. manages to make most of its profit. Auction night is'a gala affair—a part of dorm life never-to-be-forgotten.
Officers of the M.C.A. are: president, Charles Korkuch; vice-president, Ronald Richards; secretary, Joseph Fink; treasurer, John Flatley. Dr. Clyde S. Stine, dean of men, is the advisor of M.C.A.
Front left to right are MCA officers: Secretary Joseph Fink; Vice-President. Ronald Richards; President, Charles Korkuch; Treasurer, John Flatley; and Robert Benson,

.THEATRE ARTS CLUB
The Industrial Arts Theatre Club, an indispensible auxiliary to the Citamard Club, again showed its ingenuity this year in the staging of several plays.
Specializing in lighting and backstage technique, building new scenery and stage properties, the I. A. Theatre Club was responsible for the sets for high school drama night, the Senior Play, the Christmas Play, and the yearly Citamard production.
The organization, sponsored by Miss Esther Lenhardt, is made up of men in the Industrial Arts Curriculum, who arc especially interested in staging productions.
Not only are these men responsible for scenery, lighting, and stage properties, but they also control sound effects and other off-stage business, relieving the director of many responsibilities.
Receiving no remuneration for their many hours of work, these men are deserving of praise and recognition. This year’s officers were Joseph Koehler, director; Frank Prescott, Assistant Director; Earl Benevit, secretary-treasurer.OFFICERS
WOMEN’S DAY STUDENTS
The Women's Day Student Association, that group which provides a home away from home for our commuting women, has its headquarters under the veranda. The room which was painted last year has been kept in good condition by the girls. Freshly cut flowers arc placed about the room whenever possible with the colored watering can close by.
At the Christmas party the girls enjoyed decorating the tree, singing carols, listening to the talent program, exchanging gifts, and eating tasty refreshments.
The Halloween cider pour was a marked success as proven by the gallons of cider that disappeared down the throats of visiting males. The girls worked hard and displayed keen interest in all activities sponsored by the association. All members agree that the girls' day student room must be kept a cheerful place in which to play cards and meet with friends. There is even a minority who contend that the room was originally designed for study.

MEN’S DAY STUDENTS
The Men's Day Student Association, that group of men who commute to and from school, have established their lair in the basement of the old gym. In the way of entertainment the men have changed their activities with the changing world. Darts have replaced pinochle. Candy and coke machines have been installed for the convenience of the men; a walk to Pat's or the Coffee Shop would be out of the question! The room is conducive to study with the strains of ’Music, Music, Music" and Rag Mop” gently floating from the radio.
The men sponsored a chess tournament under the capable management of Milton Paul, a member and Lancaster County chess champ. All the students of the college were invited to participate.
Under the direction of Henry Kcncagy the men have made plans for improving the room.FUTURE
The January meeting of F.T.A., the topic of uhieb uas, "Hate You I Ltd Your Vitamins'"
The Future Teachers of America was organized on the Millcrsville campus in 1945. Since that time, its membership has swelled, until, at present, there arc 168 participants in the chapter.
Its main purpose is to inform prospective teachers about professional activities in the field and to arouse their interest for teaching.
A $2.00 membership fee is required. This entitles the student to regular subscriptions of the National Education Association Journal and the Pennsylvania State Education Association Journal. He is also entitled to junior membership in the two associations.
This year, the F.T.A. sponsored a course in camping with Mr. Roth instructing. Each year, F.T.A. also sponsors High School Senior's Day. In December observance was given to National Education Week, through the presentation of a special program.
That regal display at the front gate on Homecoming Day may also be attributed to this organization.
The 1949-50 officers of F.T.A. were Hobart Sapp, president; Franklin Auxcr. vice-president; Alcnc Jones, secretary; T om Park, treasurer.
Mr. William Duncan and Mr. Joseph Torchia arc the organization's advisors.

A new organization, appropriately called the Social Studies Club sprang up on our campus this year. Majors and minors in the social studies field felt it worthwhile to have a club on campus in which they could share their interests in that particular field, and in which they could discuss the difficulties encountered m teaching social studies.
The aims of the Social Studies Club are to make the students more conscious of historical facts, to promote a better understanding of the present political situation, and to receive advice concerning the teaching of history.
Miss Carolyn County served as chairman of the organization this year. Advisors of the club are Mr. V. A. Champa, Dr. Virginia Beck, and Dr. Dean Dutcher.
ALPHA PHI OMEGA
Alpha Phi Omega, a comparatively new fraternity on campus, has shown, in the past two years, its intent to accomplish its aim- service. To be eligible for membership in this fraternity, one must be a Scout or a former Boy Scout. The purpose of the fraternity, as set forth in the national constitution is "To assemble college men in the fellowship of the Scout oath and law', to develop friendship and promote service to humanity."
This year, Alpha Phi Omega sponsored Homecoming; John Boyd was chairman of the event. The fraternity also sponsored a secondhand book service, a new innovation helpful to college students, and they also held a Scout Master's Training Course for local townspeople. Still another service offered by Alpha Phi Omega was extended to a Scout group in Royerstown, which was having difficulty in administration.
The successfulness of Alpha Phi Omega may be seen in its already impressive record and the swelling of its membership. Officers this year were: president, Frank Prescott; vice-president, Rudolph Miller; secretary, Herbert Waltz; treasurer, James Long; historian, Harold Groff.
Some folks may treasure memories of the little brown jug,” but M.S.T.C. guys and gals will long remember “the big brown jug” which welcomed students and alumni to Homecoming Day's "Cider Pour” in the Old Gym, sponsored by English Club and Delta Phi Eta.
January brought the initiation of eight new members; and as pledges walked about the campus adorned with big red and white hair bows and large identifying signs, many freshmen probably thought nostalgically, or otherwise, of the days of orientation when they were in much the same situation. Initiation lasted only a week, however, and a just reward came to the pledges in a gala initiation banquet at Howard Johnsons, after which the new
candlelight induction ceremony based on the four planks of the sorority—scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
Again this year the best "nuts” in the dormitory were the "doughnuts” of the Delta Phi Eta girls. Their sale enabled the girls to secure funds for the carrying out of various worthy projects.
This year's officers, Hannah Gcttz, president; Glenna Eshlcman, vice-president; Ruth Bassler, secretary; Janet Kurtz, treasurer; and Joanne Wcilcr, historian wish to thank faculty advisors, Miss Ruby Boggs and Miss Ethel Jane Powell for their sincere cooperation and guidance on behalf of all the club members.
members were accepted in the traditionally beautiful
With the feeling of fellowship governing its action, Phi Sigma Pi Honorary Fraternity this year lowered its point requirement for entry to 2.75. The brotherhood says this was done to enable more men to enter into the close friendship a fraternity has to offer. Only through invitation may one become a member, and those men selected were considered on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and character.
At the beginning of the school year, Phi Sig secured a tower room in which all the campus fraternities are invited to hold their meetings. Both the informal inquisition
and formal induction of new men into Phi Sigma Pi was held in the room this year. Of course the famous paddlings and "midnight walks" were again a part of the initiation.
Besides its monthly meetings, the fraternity presented the annual Christmas show which was held free of charge. The chapel program last December was a movie entitled "Scrooge." There was also a visit from old St. Nick, who was guided by Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
The officers for the 1949-50 Phi Sigma Pi were president, William Seal; secretary, Fred Stinner; and treasurer, Robert Mayer.Iota chapter of the lota Lambda Sigma fraternity was installed on our campus in 1935. It is a national professional industrial education organization and exists to give recognition to students for scholarship in the Industrial Arts field of education.
In order to be eligible for membership in Iota Lambda Sigma, one must have a B average and at least 2d credits in Industrial Arts subjects.
Each year, it is this fraternity's practice to complete a project to be presented to the college, which is a most worthwhile service. This year, these men gave to the
college a portrait of Dr. Burl Osburn, head of the Industrial Arts Department, in recognition of his contributions to the field of Industrial Arts education.
At present, there are twenty-four members in Iota Lambda Sigma. Officers arc C. W. Lubbe, president; Robert Benson, vice-president; Irvin Rose, secretary-treasurer (first semester); George Freeman, secretary-treasurer (second semester); Charles Korkuch, historian.
Mr. Henry Kauffman and Mr. Paul W. Esheiman arc advisors.
Mu Kappa Mu boasts a membership of sixty-five, the largest in its history. With its increase in size has come a new spirit of cooperation and unitary action that has contributed much to this up-and-coming organization.
The club’s homecoming display was an example of a product of well-coordinated effort. One of the projects to which the group looked forward was the trip to the Bureau of Standards in Washington, this spring.
Last year, Mu Kappa Mu originated a mathematics competitive test for high school seniors. The test was given again this year with awards offered at fifteen dollars
for the first prize, ten dollars for second prize, five dollars for third prize, and honorable mentions. In this way the club extends its influence beyond the campus, and furthers the interests of mathematics in the surrounding area.
Under the capable leadership of Fred Stinner as president, Robert Casper as vice-president, Lee Meredith as secretary, and Richard Cocklcy as treasurer Mu Kappa Mu has completed another year's growth toward the acquisition of a greater understanding of mathematics and its place in our world today.
Dr. Lee Boyer is faculty advisor for Mu Kappa Mu.STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Many students look forward to the Wednesday evening meetings held by the Student Christian Association, for they are friendly gatherings offering fellowship, fun, and spiritual guidance. Whether the group is singing, receiving a speaker, or having a social affair, there is always a general feeling that a real need is being satisfied.
Besides regularly scheduled meetings, the S.C.A. holds Sunday evening Vesper Services, consisting of a half-hour of hymns, prayer, inner solitude and thought.
Each year, the S.C.A. goes to the Mennonite Children's Home in Millcrsville and distributes Christmas gifts. As the Yuletidc approaches, caroling expeditions are made throughout the town by members of S.C.A.
S.C.A.'s activities and benefits are not confined to our campus alone. Each year, the group sponsors the World Student Service bund, the proceeds of which go to needy students and schools throughout the world. Spiritual Enrichment Week is but one highlight of the association’s calendar, which was so astutely fulfilled this year by the organization. Officers were Sarah Sen ft, president , Jane Worth, vice-president; Burnell Strausbaugh, secretary; treasurer, Sylvia Plouse.LUTHERAN STUDENT ASSOCIATION
Under the direction of its president, Earl Benevit, the Lutheran Student Association accomplished many worthwhile activities which contributed to the member's religious life. This organization cooperates with
Lutheran churches in the village and contributes each year to the college Spiritual Enrichment Week.
Miss Esther Lenhardt, advisor, has been affiliated with the Lutheran Student Association for four years.
The organization meets every two weeks —on Wednesday evenings immediately after the dinner hour. During this time a brief worship program is offered.
This year, the L.S.A. had films on mission work of the church; two displaced persons also attended meetings and offered speeches of special interest to the group, and general discussions were held concerning church rituals.
There arc approximately 30 members in the organization. A new feature of the L.S.A. was a project undertaken this spring. They sold postcards of college campus scenes to the student body and other individuals. A dinner was also held in St. Paul's Church as another spring function.
Since its affiliation in 1941 with the National Federation of Newman Clubs, the Millcrsville State Teachers College Chapter has been serving as a medium of contact between the Catholic Church and her members matriculating at M.S.T.C.
The primary purpose of the Newman Club is to maintain a close contact and relationship between its members and their church. This is accomplished principally through the bi-monthly meetings which are held in the Women's Day Student Room on the campus. At these meetings talks arc given relating to religious subjects followed by discussion periods in which the students participate. The meetings arc under the direction of Rev. Louis A. Creeden, chaplain. At various times throughout the year, the club has been honored with the presence of guest speakers, including priests and prominent laymen of the area.
The officers of the Newman Club who have served this year are: president, Charles Korkuch; vice-president, Steve Palkovic; and secretary-treasurer, Elizabeth Falkenstine.
The year was highlighted by several social events which were under the direction of the social committee of which Gerald Barger was chairman. Eugene Moran was chairman of the program committee for the past year.ENGLISH CLUB
The primary aim of the English Club is to solve English problems of student teachers, to improve functional diction among its members, to develop appreciation of contemporary prose and poetry, and to establish a common bond of English interest that will persist in the member s professional life-after they leave M.S.T.C.. Since the club's founding in 1933, monthly programs have been presented. This year, meetings were held every Thursday afternoon at -1:00 p.m.
Under the capable leadership of its president, William Petru, the club held a Christmas party, and in November. Dr. Lingen-feller, head of the English Department, and advisor of the organization, spoke on his summer activities at Breadloaf, where many contemporary authors met and discussed various problems. Dr. Lingenfcltcr has been advisor of the English Club since the close of the last war.
Other officers are: Jack Strausbaugh, vice president; Florence Lehman, secretary; Shirley Young, treasurer.
LIBRARY SCIENCE CLUB
The dub opened this year's activities by holding a picnic to welcome back old members and to greet those freshmen interested in the library curriculum. Due to rain, the picnic was held in the Library Science Room.
The Library Science Club meets monthly to develop ideals in library science as they apply to the public school and community through their discussions on library work, problems and news.
The club acted as host to the Third Annual High School Library Club Conference this year. Increasing interest is shown in this conference yearly.
A scries of Sunday evening book reviews were sponsored by this organization. A picnic and food sale are held by the club each year, the proceeds of which arc added to the library flower fund.
The officers of the club are Gerry Wolfe, president; Lena Bortner, vice-president; Dorothy Morgan, secretary; and Jane Hol-linger, treasurer.PRIMARY CLUB
The Primary Club is the student branch of the National Association of Childhood Education. Interesting and informative programs were planned for the entire year under the leadership of the advisor, Miss Charlotte Good, and Jeanette Huber, president. The programs this year offered interesting and helpful information, not only for those who are student teaching, but also for the future student teachers. Demonstrations in Music, Art, and classroom activities form the core about which the programs are planned. At Christmas, Miss Jenkins gave a piano recital, and Miss Lenhardt told a story, "The Song from Heaven."
A more varied type of program carried out the second semester featured a movie on "Infant Behavior” by Dr. GascII, a talk by Dr. Robert Kemble, psychiatrist, on behavior of children and their implications in school life, a talk by Mrs. Jane Grey Smith on the techniques and source materials for story telling, and a reading forum by the Primary club members.
The culminating activity of the year was a banquet held in Lancaster for the one hundred and ten members.
RODDY SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY
It was just last year—in 1949—that the Roddy Scientific Society again took its place among the extra-curricular activities on campus. The club was disbanded shortly after the start of the war because of the lack of men in the college, but it is now coming to the fore.
The reorganization was done mainly through the efforts of Hal Wcirich and George Wilson. Programs consist of faculty speakers, members of the club addressing the group, and movies. Chemistry lab demonstrations arc sometimes given. The Society is backed by three advisers: Mr. Caulwcll, Mr. Koken, and Mr. McCann.
The purpose of the Roddy Scientific Society is to aid in the advancement of knowledge and of interest in the broad field of science.
The officers who arc guiding the society to its former place on the campus arc William Cushman, president; Nelson Adams, vice-president; Alcne Jones, secretary; Henry Kcncagy, treasurer; and Robert Hostctter, historian.
COLLEGE RADIO ASSOCIATION
The Millersvillc State Teachers College Radio Association is a group of men who have banded together to pursue a common interest—that of radio and electronics. The main objectives of the Association arc the following: to foster interest in these fields on the campus, and to aid others in obtaining their amateur radio operators' licenses.
The Radio Association maintains and operates an amateur radio station in the tower of the main building, the call letters of which are W3QDC. The operators of this station are in frequent contact with other "hams” in all parts of the country.
Other activities of the Radio Association include service projects for the school, such as providing facilities for the broadcasting of announcements and music over the entire campus on special occasions. These occasions arc highlighted by Homecoming Day and the pre-Christmas season.INDUSTRIAL ARTS SOCIETY
The Industrial Arts Society since its inception in 1932 has grown into an active organization with 150 members. The purpose of this society is to encourage professional study and service to the college under the direction of the Industrial Arts Department.
It brings to our campus distinguished lecturers and craftsmen. This year speakers attended meetings giving demonstrations in plastics, whittling, and other topics of interest to those primarily concerned with this field of study. In February, an Ansco color film demonstration was given. Among the lecturers this year, was Dr. Picket, of the Industrial Arts Department at New York University.
Those students interested in Industrial Arts work, but who arc not enrolled in the curriculum, may become associate members of the I. A. Society. Alumni arc also encouraged to join.
Dr. Burl Osburn. head of the Industrial Arts Department, is advisor. Officers were: Melvin Hunter, president; C. W. Lubbc vice-president; Elwood Kramer, secretary; Fred Starr, treasurer (first semester); Frank Prescott, treasurer (second semester).

After having been disbanded during the war, the Rod and Gun Club reorganized in the fall of 1946. Although primarily made up of hunters, the club does many services for the college which belies its name.
Everyone likes to see the squirrels running across the campus and climbing the trees. Most of these little animals were put here by this group of students. Feeders are also provided, and the club secs that they remain well-stocked in the winter with acorns and other food. The birds also receive their share of the fare.
This semester, after the lake had been deepened and cleaned, the Rod and Gun Club assumed the responsibility of restocking it with fish. Fertilizer was placed on the bottom of the lake until natural algae grows to supply food.
The group's other activities included practice and competition on an inside rifle range, and planned hunting and fishing trips.
The men who guided the organization through its many functions were Robert Frantz, president; Marvin Lantz, vice-president; Clarence Kling, secretary; Hobart Sapp, treasurer; and David Davis, historian.
BASSLER GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY
Named in honor of Professor H. M. Bassler for his service in the field of geography, the Bassler Geographic Society is a comparatively new organization on campus, having been organized in September, 1947.
The membership is made up of students majoring or minoring in Geography. The purpose of the society is to supplement the student's knowledge of geography and to develop his appreciation of the subject.
Regular meetings are held at which discussions, lectures, and visual aids promote geography interests.
The officers were president, Vincent A. Tritch; vice-president, Harold Cornish; secretary, Joseph Zigovits; treasurer. Marvin Lantz. Professor Harry M. Bassler is advisor of the society.VARSITY SWEETHEART
Each year the Men's Varsity Club bestows upon some lucky junior or senior coed the honor of being chosen Varsity Sweetheart, and the fortunate young lady is feted at the annual Varsity Drag, the fitting climax to Homecoming Day festivities. This year's sweetheart was blue-eyed, auburn-haired Lois Price of York County, a junior in the Secondary Curriculum.
Lois represents the typical college miss, full of life and fond of fun and good times, yet at the same time eager to get a real education from her college days. Appropriately, she has an avid love for sports and also manifests an active interest in good music, good books, and her favorite, French. She treasures the silver initialed bracelet bestowed upon her by the Varsity Club, and is justly proud and fittingly humble of the high honor accorded her.

GIRLS VARSITY CLUB
The Girls' Varsity Club offers social contacts, group loyalty and good sportsmanship to its members. To become a member of this organization, a girl must earn a varsity letter in either hockey or basketball. A black blazer piped in gold, and bearing the insignia of the club, is presented to each girl who has earned three varsity letters in one sport.
This year the girls maintained a check room in Brooks Hall during the wrestling matches, basketball games and dances. In conjunction with the Men's Varsity Club, the girls' club shared the responsibility of operating the concession stands at football games, selling programs, and ushering. As previously, the members entertained opposing teams.
On Homecoming Day, the Girls' Varsity Club proudly hung their large Welcome Alumni" display between the Girls’ Dormitory and the Old Gym.The members of the band had their spirits lifted and were filled with enthusiasm when they found snappy-looking new uniforms waiting for them upon their arrival at school in September. Attractiveness and spirit were added to the football games by this smart-stepping, streamlined marching band.
The band took part in the Christmas Program by playing several favorite Christmas carols. However, the band's brightest moment of this year was the annual Spring Concert presented on March 22. Guisscppe Creatore was guest conductor and Elvira Helal was guest soloist.
Behind the scenes of each successful performance were many hours of hard practice by members of the band. Through continual stress on practice, Mr. George R. Anderson, director, has improved this musical organization's contributions a great deal.
Student leaders of this year's band were William Hartman, student director; Dorothy Morgan, secretary; Lee Meredith, librarian; and Irene Gcn-bauffe, head drum majorette.ORCHESTRA

Room R is the base of operations for this talented little group, 3nd Tuesday afternoons is the time when they can be found rehearsing diligently. The overtures and incidental music between acts arc always welcome at the Senior and Cicamard plays.
Because the Messiah was not given this past Christmas, the orchestra did not perform, as has been the custom in previous years. However, the group did offer its talents at the May Queen celebrations which were held.
The Orchestra may be small, but it is a friendly group of students who enjoy following their musical interests together.COLLEGE

On almost any Thursday evening that you arc around the college, listen carefully and you can hear the beautifully blended tones of the choir floating out to you. Giving up an evening a week, and quite often two. doesn't bother these singers. They know that producing pleasurable music requires long hours of patient practice together, and it is enough reward for them to know they have mastered a difficult choral fugue by Bach, or a mighty chorus from the Messiah by Handel.
This year, as always, the Choir gave its annual Christmas concert. Instead of the entire Messiah being presented, a varied program of well-known Christmas music was offered. Everyonef

who attended—and there was a very large audience—enjoyed it immensely. But the Handel oratorio was not forgotten. The "Hallelujah” and "His Yoke Is Easy” choruses were rendered in the Choir’s usual stirring way.
Soloists for the concert were Francis Reh-meyer, soprano, Mary Workman, alto, Hugh Porter, tenor, and Pickering Reynolds, bass.
Everyone is acquainted with the group’s process as shown in the weekly chapel programs. There is hardly a Wednesday goes by that the students are not entertained with an anthem.
Then in January the lovely Girls’ Glee Club, made up of the soprano and alto sections of the Choir traveled into Lancaster to sing for the Iris Club.ATHLETICS

The football log of the Millersville Marauders for the 1949 season reads: one victory, eight defeats. Behind this poor record, however, are certain facts that should be known.
Hampered by injuries, lack of replacements, and the lightest squad in the Teachers Conference, Millersville was a target for the other teams in the circuit, but the Black and Gold put up a terrific battle in every contest, while only two games were rather lopsided affairs. It was without doubt, the pluckiest squad this college has seen in years.
In the opener, East Stroudsburg won 13-0, yet the boys from the Poconos were unable to make a first down until the third quarter.
The following weekend, a light Marauder squad upset a powerful Shippcnsburg eleven, 14-7, after spotting the Red Raiders a touchdown in the first few minutes of the game.
Playing before a large crowd in their initial home game, Millersville almost made it two victories in a row, but the Bald Eagles from Lock Haven triumphed in the last thirty seconds on a 25-yard field goal.
After traveling to Bloomsburg and coming out on the short end of a long score (32-7), the Black and Gold returned home to meet a hot-and-cold St. I'rancis outfit. Although the score (19-7) would seem to indicate that the Frankies had an easy time, actually the game was
fairly close. Ten costly fumbles ruined all the Marauders chances for a possible victory.
The interest over the West Chester game was as high as usual, but a heavy rain dampened everyone's spirit, and the Rams, capitalizing on the weather, their weight, and an abundance of material, won going away, 26-0.
The coldest day of the football season saw the Black and Gold drop another hard-fought battle to a stronger Kutztown eleven, 21-13 The score showed the usual story- the visitors had too much weight and reserves.
Playing before the Homecoming Day crowd, an inspired Marauder team nearly upset a vaunted California eleven. With the score 7-7 at the half, both teams fought on even terms until the Californians pushed over the winning touchdown.
With a spirit unparalleled in years, had the team more weight and deeper reserves, the total picture may have been differently drawn; in fact, it might even have been reversed. Notable individual performers were many: Geiger, Miller, O'Day, Chryst, Morgan, Connors, and the ►cam’s outstanding player, Frankie Groff. A potentially fine passing combination was exhibited in Patsy D Amico and Cake” Alexander.
Credit must be awarded to the team and to the coach-ing staff for their courage and determination.
We hope that next year's team will have the same fighting spirit this team exhibited along with more weight and reserve strength.From the standpoint of the record, it was a dismal season, hut the second guessers had a fine year. There were enough breaks, both good and bad, to provide plenty of material for three hypothetical victories. With a few "if we had gotten a block here . . "if we had tried a pass there . . and Millcrsville imaginably comes out on the long end of the score.
The toughest break and the best example of the type of luck characterizing the season was in the Lock Haven game. With the Marauders leading 14-13 in the closing minutes of the game, good coaching called for Millers-ville to try for a touchdown rather than a field goal.
since a field goal would have been worthless had the Bald Eagles crossed the goal line again. In line with this reasoning the Marauders tried for the touchdown but missed; Lock Haven kicked a field goal, however, and the final score became just one of those things."
Second guessing any game we lost by two touchdowns or more approaches fantasy and leaves the field of speculation. But the fact that many of the games were not won in a manner so convincing as to preclude any theorizing indicates that if the team's depth and weight equaled their spirit, the paper record might have been more-respectable.
First row: Groff, Morgan, Noel, McCoach, Harclerodc. Second row: Trainer Zigovit . Chryst, Connor,
Peiras, Dutcher.(First row) Coach Rupp, Willing, Barger, Herbert, Miller, Shervanick. (Second row) Waters, Meys, Senft. Thier, Yascnchck, Bissinger. (Third row) Manager Shoemaker, Pfrommcr, Doerr, Doherty, Kemp, Manager I.ingg. (Fourth row) Schmidt, Maurer, Price, Grander, Watkinson, Dyson, Manager Moran.
You might say that Coach Rupp's squad of huskies had a fairly successful season. You might, that is, if you are somewhat pessimistic. Since this reporter is not, he will say that a record of 7 wins to 1 defeat and a runnerup slot in the Pennsylvania State Teacher’s Tournament is a very good record. It is probably the best record of any of our competitive teams, for it compares favorably with the basketball team's record. The one defeat was no discredit to the squad because Waynesburg was as tough an aggregation as we have seen 3nd though our boys did their best, the Waynesburg grapplcrs just did a little better.
In the tournament, Barger, Doherty and King came through with firsts; Miller and Waters took seconds; Kemp, Meys and Doerr gave us thirds. The boys garnered 33 points to finish only 7 points behind first place Lock Haven.
The outlook for next season is particularly bright. We will probably lose only Miller, anti in the 121 pound class we have an excellent replacement in Jerry Shervanick. It old man injury doesn't hit us, we should have a season equalling, if not surpassing, this past season.Pole Yasenchek, 145 lb. Middle Atlantic A.AM. Champ.

With a final record of 15 4, Max Bishop's Marauders finished their most successful season in a decade. As tall and as ably coached as most of their opponents, the Marauders swept through a tough schedule highlighted by a smashing victory over an
N.I.A.B. tournament-bound Westminster aggregation. (As this is being written, Westminster is seeded number one in the tournament.) In eleven games of Teachers College competition, the Marauders met defeat twice at the hands of their nemesis West Chester, and were rudely upset by the off-and-on Bloomsburg Huskies. In outside competition the Marauders lost only to high-rating national invitation tournament contender LaSalle, while conquering Geneva, the aforementioned Westminster, and this county opponent Elizabethtown, the latter bowing in both games.
Since only the veterans Korkuch, Todd, and Depoc who served as this year's nucleus will be lost by graduation, Millersville's prospects for next year areas bright as usual. Hershey, Weaver, and Kramer will lx- juniors; Kline and Alexander, sophomores. With these seasoned players as a core to which a few men from the J.V.'s and the freshmen prospects can be added, the Black and Gold should show real power
The high-scoring J.V.'s, displaying speed and accuracy completed a season of 14 wins and 2 losses in running rough-shod over an assorted competition.
Captain Ken Depoc.First row: Moran, Irwin, Michalccwiz, Charles, Eckert. Second row Coach Bishop, Wcnglasz, Cushman, Brenner, Todd. Dunlap, Lafferty. Third row: Managers Hunter, Orstcin, Werner, W. Krcider, Wcirich. Miller, Weik, Manager Federico.
Baseball, that evcr-popular spring sport, reared its head on Millersvilic’s campus as the local nine propped to meet some tough competition. Returning to the diamond for the Marauders were seven varsity holdovers from the 1948 season. Comprising this group arc the following: William Cushman, Kenneth Dombach, Raymond Dunlap, James Todd, George Vengrin, Harold Wcirich, and John Wenglasz.
Coach Max Bishop contends that the outlook is fair for the 1950 season. "What we 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" Wcirich, and the consistent hitting of Jim Todd to put the needed punch in the local's attack.GIRLS’ HOCKEY
First row: Coach Griffith. Thompson. Wolfe, Workman, Oelschlagcr, Pusey, Ulsh, Coach Dixon. Second row: Slaver, Manager Bushey, Hampton, Schork. Higgins. Styer, Wiley, Dort, Bclscr, Huber, Myers. Third row: Evans, Sporkin, McLeod, Groff, Ruth, Ulmer, Levan.
Although the shouts and cries of the girls' hockey team have long since died down, the girls have earned themselves a record well-worth remembering. Showing an improvement over last year, the gals with the sticks'' kept a neat slate by gaining victories over Shippensburg and Albright, tying Lebanon Valley and Gettysburg, and dropping two hard-fought contests to Lock Haven.
Such "first ladies" as' Virginia Hampton, Arlene Hubert, Barbara McLeod, Shirley Myers, Eleanor Oelschlagcr. Dorothy Pusey, Janet Thompson, Jane Ulsh. Marion Wolfe, Jane Wiley, and Mary Workman, led the M.S.T.C. team throughout the hockey season. Far too little credit is given to these "unsung heroines" who gave of their time, energy, and spirit to build an impressive name and record of which the students of our college could be proud.
Not to be outdone by their older sisters, the Junior Varsity took another step up the latter of success by winning two and losing three of their games. Having been only the second year that our school was represented by a Junior Varsity Team, these gals too deserve a round of applause 3nd a word of encouragement.
To the coaches, Miss Griffith and Miss Dixon, the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams, and the hard-working managers, Marion Smith, Alden Gieek, Julia Metz, and Nancy Bushey,—go congratulations for a job well-done.GIRLS’ BASKETBALL
First row: Shenk, Warner, Ulsh, Young, Thompson, Hampton. Second row: Manager County. Shcrer, Glcim, Mengcl, Harrison, Billet, Clay. Third row: Levan, Ulmer. Kilmer, Holz, Pickle, Sauerbaum, Sebastian. Fourth row: Managers Worth and Borncr, Evcrhardt, Dubson, Blaney, Golden, Coach Griffith, Manager Ruth.
Facing such strong opponents as Elizabethtown, Lock Haven, Albright, Gettysburg, Shippensburg, and Moravian Colleges, the Lady Marauders had a tough schedule from beginning to end.
Even though they traveled the road of victory but a few times, the girls, hampered by some injuries, really went all out for the school and put their hearts into the game. Possibly if the student body had offered more support the team would have come home with the crown of victory more often than it did.
Because of the many tough breaks, the girls deserve additional credit and honors for keeping up their spirits and going into each game with the desire to win.
Members of the junior varsity team, which will one day take the Varsity’s place, equalled their older teammates in initiative and persistence.
We wish to express thanks to our two fine coaches—Miss Mary Dixon and Miss Katherine Griffith, who gave much encouragement and time to the guidance of the team, to the managers, Carolyn County, Lee Bortner, Sara Jane Worth, and Mary Ruth, who so often do not receive a word of appreciation for their watchfulness over the team; and of course, to the team themselves for giving their all through a difficult season.TENNIS 1950
Left to right: Cams, Moyer. Revene. Huber, Emery, Manager Kcays.
The outlook for Millersville's colorful tennis squad is very bright for this season. The team is bolstered by four returning lettermen. Coach Pucillo has the services of “Hank” Huber, Paul Revene, “Chuck” Emery, and Ed Moyer to form the nucleus of his 1950 squad. Also much help will come from the fol lowing men: Robert Gerhart, Carl Bernhardt, and four or five promising freshmen.
Interest in tennis has risen to new heights in the past four years at M.S.T.C by the colorful display of tennis from such players as: Easy Ed" Moyer, a senior, who will try to stretch his string of six consecutive victories on through to the end of the 1950 season; Paul Revene, a senior, better known as Trenchy" will hope that his feet hold up this season so as to enable him to notch a few more-victories; "Hank" Huber, a senior, who plays a steady and consistent game; and finally "Chuck” Emery, a sophomore, who gives tough competition to those opponents who face him in the No. 1 spot.-ARROW SHOE STORE
