THE SENIOR CLASS
Upon entering Millersville State Teachers College, we. the members of the Senior Class, found here a new life—a life which enabled us to put aside the fears of conflict— depression—atomic destruction—and moral decline which had descended upon the world, and to readjust ourselves to an educational goal in time of peace.
But as history repeats itself, our country once more finds itself in the midst of a grave international conflict: and again, a cross-section of our student body has entered the armed services to join with the numerous armies of the freedom-loving nations of the world.
It is to these courageous protectors of our freedom, who are stationed throughout the world, that we. the members of the class of 1951, humbly dedicate this edition of the Touchstone. May they, through their selfless sacrifices and unceasing labors, help create a blessed international peace, atomic construction, moral regeneration, and a brilliant new dawn of cultural development throughout a free world.1111DR.

Miss Mary Elizabeth Dixon
George R. Anderson
Miss Dixon lives by the philosophy that anything worth doing is worth doing well, and anyone who is fortunate enough to come in contact with this young lady knows that is true. In sports this is evident by the wonderfully successful field hockey team she helped coach this past year. This, by the way, is Miss Dixon's favorite sport along with tennis. Although this girls' gym teacher docs not play a musical instrument or act, she is very fond of scmiclassical and classical music and of the legitimate theatre.
Miss Dixon feels that her most valuable experience in her life was the two year period she spent in the Navy. She was a physical education instructor at Hunter College, New York, and, as such, was exposed to many different points of view.
Although Miss Dixon's life now centers around physical education—she hopes to be head of a department somewhere—she had planned to become a scientist. While she was going to Slippery Rock S.T.C., Miss Dixon worked at a chemical laboratory’ of a dairy products plant during the summer. Incidental information: she is very fond of icecream.
At present our class adviser is working on her doctorate at Penn State, which she hopes to get by next year. One of the policies that governs Miss Dixon's life is to set a goal to reach, and once she has reached it, set a higher one. Her goal now is her Ph.D. After this is reached—she isn't sure what comes next, but we know that it will be a worthy one.
In 1932, Mr. Anderson had to make a choice between becoming a professional musican or continuing teaching. It was fortunate for Millcrsvillc when the chose the latter career. Since that time, Mr. Anderson has proven to himself and to everyone that he was cut out for the teaching profession.
Mr. Anderson has had many experiences to draw from to aid him in being the excellent teacher he is. He worked his way through four years at Penn State and held many interesting unusual jobs—at one time or another he was a coal miner, a farmer, and a newspaperman.
While it is as a teacher of mathematics that Mr. Anderson holds his position here at Millersville, most of the students know him as the director of the college band. Mr. Anderson's first love is math, and his second love, running a close second, is band music. In this field also our class adviser has had some rich experiences, working under great men as Crcatore, and knowing personally Goldman, the band-master and Howard and Branson, conductors of the Air Corps and Marine Bands, respectively.
Mr. Anderson's policy is to try something new and different every five years. In 1945 he flew to California with a friend in a small two-seater (Mr. Anderson holds a pilot's license). This year he toured Key West with his charming family. What does 1955 hold for Mr. Anderson ? Whatever it is, we wish him the best of luck.SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
The Senior Class Officers: Historian, Shirley Breinig; Treasurer, Lee Meredith; President, John Michalcewiz; Vice-President, Joanne Weiler; and Secretary, Dorothy Morgan.
Our "Temple of Knowledge' is complete at last. We spent four years in building it, and as we look back over those years, we see how well our plans were executed. Yes, we experienced much pleasure and much work along the way. Now we stand here on graduation day and view our work, and we are not ashamed to ascribe our names as the executors of so great a task.
As freshmen wc were excavated and we laid our foundation for learning. We well remember the bewildering first days on campus. Those superior sophomores, juniors, and seniors did an excellent job of uncovering us. We were haughty fellows when we entered college, but after the first few days of orientation we had a hole in our ego deep enough for a sturdy foundation.
Our foremen on our foundation were Joseph Zigovitz, Gloria Smith. Frank Petras, and Mary Buckwalter. Joe’s assistants used their every resource to insure us of the best materials possible. Our foundation was a mixture of work and fun. Our first class—President Biemes-derfer's reception—freshmen tests—the Tug-O- War across the lake—the picnic in May—final exams—just to mention a few of the materials that went into the foundation of our "Temple of Knowledge."
Two semesters were completed and our building program was well under way. Our sophomore task was to erect the walls of our temple. Each stone of pleasure was carefully chosen and just as carefully laid in place with our mortar of work. Smilingly we recall some of the stones that were put into our walls. At the "Harvest Whirl" each lad and lass danced in a gayly decorated gym to the music of Don Pccblc’s Orchestra. Our Talent Show was a bang-up affair, and this was the year wc sponsored our first County Fair. Then there were the games, the meets, the teas, and, of course, more exams. We'll never forget our head stone-layer and those who mixed our mortar: Ray Roden, Frank Schrack, Ruth Bassler, Frank Petras, and Bill Ketterman. When May of 1949 arrived we had successfully completed half of our plans, the high stately walls of our "Temple of Knowledge" stood firm and erect.
Entering our third year at MSTC with our foundation laid and our walls constructed, we faced the problem of putting a roof on our temple. Ray Roden was selected head man for the job. John Michalcewiz, Barbara Mc-
Leod, and Ruth Bragg made sure that each tile which was put on the roof of our building was made of genuine fun and nailed into place with spikes of real work. We scarcely remember all the materials that went into our roof. However, some of it remains vividly in our minds. Early in the first semester wc held our annual County Fair. We decorated the old gym in gala colors with balloons, streamers, and fresh hay. We gave pies and cakes to the lucky prize winners. We sponsored another Talent Show. We participated in May Day. And then in the peak of our roof we planned the Junior Prom.
Before wc realized it, we were seniors! The thought was frightening. Three years had gone by and all that remained was two semesters in which to complete our "Temple of Knowledge." Wc elected John Michalcewiz, Joanne Weiler, Dorothy Morgan, Ixrc Meredith, and Shirley Breinig as our committee to plan the interior of our building. Wc entrusted the task of recording the plans which we had completed to Ethelanne Boden and Paul Mickey.
One piece of furniture that just had to be included in our building was student teaching. Aims, objectives, daily lesson plans, and unit outlines all became a part of our interior decorations. But our furniture was not all work. There were dances and games and many other pleasurable events. "Charlie's Aunt," under the direction of Miss Rebekah Sheaffer, was packed with laughs. All of a sudden we found ourselves putting the finishing touches to our work. Wc ordered commencement announcements, we were fitted for caps and gowns, and wc took our last exams. And last of all we placed inside our "Temple of Knowledge" our big Senior Week-end including the Reception and the Ball.
As we stand here on graduation day and dedicate our building to the education of society, we are filled with humble pride by the work which we have accomplished. Wc owe a great deal to our class advisers, Miss Mary Elizabeth Dixon and Mr. George Anderson, for their cooperation as wc planned and worked on our structure.
Yes, our "Temple of Knowledge" is complete at last. But it is complete only for today. Tomorrow we will begin to make new plans, to renovate, and to redecorate our building in order that wc might always keep our "Temple of Knowledge" in good repair.LEE ELLEN ALMONEY

Gladys Palmer"Charley's Arnit,” a three-act farce by Brandon Thomas, was a tremendous success when it was presented before a capacity audience November 18, 1950, in the college chapel.
The setting was Oxford University. The plot involved two young university students who were seeking the affections of a young heiress and her friend. Complications began to arise when Charley's Aunt from Brazil ("where the nuts come from") appeared. The audience was in an uproar for five minutes when Bill Kctterman made his stage entrance. He portrayed the rich old lady in an outstanding way. The entire cast worked hard and each showed acting ability which was "200% Perfect"!
Bouquets to Miss Rebekah Shcaffer for her untiring efforts in directing this production. Tribute should also be paid to: Ruth Bassler, student assistant-to-thc-coach; Theatre Arts, for their work on the sets; and all the committees who functioned so well. It can be stated, without exaggeration, that each member of the overflow audience found the play a thoroughly enjoyable evening's entertainment.
This was an outstanding year for the class of 1952, despite the severe blow of having two successive presidents, John Plymyer and John Workingcr, leave us for the armed services.
One of the gayest affairs of the year was the "Junior Snow Frolic," a Christmas party held in the old gym. Christmas gifts were everywhere—under the trees, in pockets, and hanging from the ceiling. Four trees, each one decorated by a different class, served to give a Yuletide atmosphere. These trees were judged by a faculty committee for originality, economy, and beauty, and a prize was awarded for the tree decorated by the Freshman Class. Everyone particiCLASS
pated in games, dancing, and caroling. Additional entertainment was supplied by the college students from all classes.
The biggest affair held in Brooks Hall was the Junior Prom which proved to be very outstanding with its sort lights and sweet music.
These affairs were made possible through the capable direction of the class officers: Kenneth Randall, president; Donald Bissinger, vice-president; Dorothy Puscy, secretary; and Joyce Mc-Craney, treasurer. Nancy Biliett served as historian, and Jane Ulsh represented the class in Student Council. Dr. Mary A. Brightbill and Mr. James Koken were the class advisers.

Casting off their freshmen togs, the sophomores quickly assumed the role of the aggressor in this year's initiation. They soon forgot the experiences of a year ago when many of them had downed orientation as an evil practice aimed at making life-miserable for the freshmen. On campus and in the dorm these advocates of orientation helped to keep the freshmen in line.
Although this is just their second year, the)- have already played a major part in campus activities. On Homecoming not only were they the only class to welcome the alumni with an attractive, original sign, hut they also made another contribution to the day's festivities in the form of pert Janet Bclscr who served as Varsity Queen.
Their main social event of the year was-
yes, you've heard correctly—"The Thing' (swiped from a song by that name). This dance was held in the old gym. which was gaily decorated with colored streamers. The music was provided by our own campus band. "The Drcamlanders."
Elected to shape the destiny of the class was Paul McCool, president. He was ably assisted by Shirley Evans, secretary; and Patricia Smith, treasurer. Working cooperatively with them were their ever patient and friendly advisers. Dr. Virginia Beck and Louis G. Jennings. The Class of '53 enjoyed sharing their plans with them and in the future hopes to continue this cooperation so that much may be accomplished in their remaining two years at M S. f.C.

We all heaved an audible sigh of relief when the Orientation Committee said, "That's all folks!," but actually, deep inside, we were just a wee bit sorry that our formal introduc-duction to campus life was over.
After our initiation period we soon realizedthat we were actually a vital part of Millcrs-vilie College life. To help us in the many problems that arose, Mr. Josef Krasley and Miss Coral Melson were appointed as our faculty advisers. With their help we organized our class of over three hundred members more efficiently and soon had a vigorous election campaign in full swing. The election returns found Richard R. Heckler as president; Robert Peffley as vice-president; Dolores Creamer, secretary, and Sara Brown, treasurer.
After the trials of organizing were over, we sponsored numerous social functions throughout the year which were packed with excitement and fun for all in spite of orientation and those horrible exams.

With a gayly decorated gym of bright balloons and crepe paper, and the danceablc music of Bob Rothfus, the Student Council made their first appearance of the year. Under the chairmanship of Gerald Hodge, "The Council Bounce,'’ first dance of the school year, enabled the students to become acquainted with the Student Council.
During the Christmas season the Student Council held their annual semi-formal holiday dance. In the middle of the Brooks Hall floor an eighteen foot, gaily decorated Christmas tree was to be seen. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, candy canes were given to those attending. Frank Frye's twelve piece orchestra from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, furnished the music.
Services offered to the student body by the Student Council are: the yearly publication of the "Black and
Gold Handbook," the Old Gym, disbursement of allocations. and general discussion and action upon matters arising in the administration of student government.
Each year one representative is elected to the Student Council from: each class, the Day Student Associations, and the Community Associations, and then a general election is held for the president and two representatives at large. The job of these selected students is to serve to the best of their ability the entire student body by way of student government. Each student upon registration at the college automatically becomes a member of the Student Association.
Officers of the Student Council this year were: Ronald Kiehl, president; Allan Eckert, vice-president; Janet Kurtz, secretary; and Lena Bortncr, treasurer.FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA
The local James Pyle Wickersham Chapter of Future Teachers of America is an active group on campus. Its purposes are to acquaint students with professional organizations and to prepare them for professional responsibilities.
The program committee did a fine job this year in making the topics of the meetings varied and interesting. Juvenile delinquency, the White House Conference for Children and Youth, and an analysis of the interview as well as specific school problems were among those subjects discussed in the meetings. Among the guest speakers were Clarence M. Ebersole, McCaskcy High School; and A. Landis Brackbill, Principal of Manor High School. The chapter sponsored an interesting chapel program in November at which time they presented Dr. Eugene Berlin, assistant executive secretary
for the Pennsylvania State Education Association. The final meetings of the year on May 21 took the form of a social activity which everyone enjoyed.
A membership of $2.00 is required which entitles a member to receive monthly subscriptions of the National Education Association Journal and the Pennsylvania State Education Association Journal. Besides this, a member is also entitled to junior membership in the two associations.
Future Teachers of America deserves well-earned recognition for its contribution to the students this year. The '50-'5l officers were: Paul Workinger, president; John Crabtree, vice-president; Dorothy Pinkerton, secretary; and Barbara McLeod, treasurer. Mr. Duncan and Mr. Torchia arc the advisers of this organization.“ElT THE 1951 TOUCHSTONE
Little consideration is given to the many hours of arduous work that is necessary for the compilation of a yearbook. Little recognition is given to those who work with the editors of such a publication.
We, the editors of the 795 Touchstone, wish to extend thanks and appreciation to those students and members of the administration, whether directly or indirectly affiliated with our staff, for their suggestions, information, and time directed toward the realization of our goal.
Special tribute is due several indispensable people our adviser, Mr. George R. Anderson and Carl Davis, who put much time and work into the photography; our associate editor, Miss Shirley Snyder, who took over a
difficult task and finished it beautifully; Franklin Price, who took over the business end of the book, upon Mr. Steffan's recall to active service, and did a bang-up job; and Ronald Kiehl, art editor, for many hours of fruitful labor. These people and their associates made this book possible.
To the Class of 1951 and the underclassmen, we offer this book as the final product of our labors. We have attempted to enclose within these covers those events and personages which we felt might, in the present and future, bring forth many pleasant hours of remembrance and recognition.

"At Millersville-Everybody Reads the Snapper.” If you want to know what's happening at Millersville State Teachers College and why. just refer to this source.
During the first semester, a crisis hit the paper, and it dropped from a semi monthly to a monthly publication. The Snapper is a four page edition printed on regular newsprint paper.
News to interest everyone is the objective of the staff. The front page is attractively headed and headlines are big and bold so that none are easily overlooked. All events—whether of the school itself, or of the personalities of Millersville—are well and interestingly written. Organizations of our campus are recognized by the paper.
The Snapper has an informative and busy sport s section. Under the leadership of Myron Dietz, Sport's editor, the staff never missed a touchdown, basket, goal or home run. And at Millersville—the Snapper recognizes the girls as athletes, too!
On the feature page may be found all types of eyecatching articles. There are stories pertaining to particular seasons and events of the school year. The poems arc written in true style-romantic, comical, philosophical—something to suit everyone. Personality sketches of different students are presented with each publication. And everyone looks to see if their name appears in the ”Tossing Tiilbet's" column.
The editorials were well worth the reading of every student and faculty member. Letters to the editor—
advisor is Mr. Louis C. Jennings.
The objective for any school newspaper is attained by the Snapper, for it is a paper by the students, of the students, and for the students.NEWS STAFF

Without doubt 1951 was a banner year for the Citamard Players. This statement is supported by two factors: ”Beau Brummel" and the club tribute to Miss Lenhardt.
'Beau Brumtuela four-act literary antique by Clyde Fitch, was selected by Citamard as its play-of-thc-ycar. Under the expert supervision of Miss Rebckah ShcafTer. the group's high-voltage coach, this elaborate eighteenth century comedy of manners proved highly successful.
William Ketterman played the Beau and was supported by Marilyn Fleischmann, Dorothy Borbach, Joseph Lantzer, William Pctru, Nelson Freidly, and a host of other praise deserving players.
"Beau Brunnuellwas high lighted by the fact that it was dedicated to Citamard s grande-dame, Miss Esther Lenhardt. The club went all out to show its appreciation to this wonderful lady of the footlights. The show was ded:-E
catcd to her; the Beau led her down the as the strains of the Alma Mater floated through the chapel; she was presented with a $70 check and an orchid by Walter Ullrich; and the huge crowd rose in devotion to her. The entire ceremony was a surprise to Miss I.enhardt. thus her pleasure was multiplied.
In addition to the aforementioned activities, Citamard produced several one-act plays like "The Monkey's Paw" and "The PotboilerThe club again sponsored High School Drama Night, at which event visiting secondary schools “•resented one-act plays which were criticized •y capable judges.
I he thirty-eight Citamardians will not rest on past laurels. Already they arc anticipating bigger and better productions, and we know these W,n be realized, lor the dramatics club has always been known for its worthy activities Indeed, the play s the thing." Kormal Officers arc: Lena Borcner, Secretary; Richard Cocklcy, Vice-President; Richard Freeman, President; and Joyce McCrancy, Treasurer.
This was a great year for Normal Literary Society which began its ninety-fifth year on the M.S.T.C campus with its annual freshman reception in September. A gala night was enjoyed by all—both Normalitcs and Pageites. Movies and cartoons followed by informal dancing highlighted the evening of fun. Guests wore their favorite and more comfortable togs—jeans. Of course, there were refreshments, too.
In October, Normal celebrated its ninety-fifth anniversary by having Betty Finnan, fiction editor of Woman’s Day magazine, as its guest speaker. For her topic she chose 'VI Day with a Fiction Editor'’ Musical selections were rendered by a college vocal group and Mrs. Jane Gray Smith played several violin selections.
Normal s Annual Sweetheart Dance was again the bright star in Normal's social calendar. As customary, this dance was held in the Valentine month and the girls asked the fellows (even though this isn’t a leap year!). Brooks Hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Julia Metz was crowned Queen of Hearts.
Normal's officers and advisers have again carried on the society's tradition of excellent, worth-while programs. Officers were: Richard Freeman, president; Richard Cockley, vice-president; Lena Bortner, secretary; and Joyce McCrancy, treasurer.
Mrs. Roy Breneman and Mr. William Duncan are the organization’s advisers.

Mr. William Duncan Faculty AdviserPage Officers are: Sealed—Fred Willing, Vice-President; Miss Ether Lcnhardt, Faculty Adviser; Joseph Fink, President. Standing: Frank Weaver, Curator; Barbara Witmycr, Treasurer; Kenneth Randall, Curator."Rich in Truth"—this motto has constantly been supported by the many Patches who join the society’s ranks each year. That Page's programs have truly given its audience and members a rich and wholesome experience is a statement that even the most staunch Normalitc cannot deny.
This literary society is the prototype of all other societies on campus. Its existence dates back to IS55. when a small body of students of the Millersvillc Normal School met and organized a society. A charter was granted, and the society was named "Page Literary Society," in honor of David Page, then a prominent educator and author and the first principal of the first Normal School in New York.
The purpose of Page is 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 of America. In accordance with this worthy aim, Page first began its activities as a weekly debating society. Later it sponsored many contests in art. music, play-writing, spelling bees, and tennis, and in this manner provided for the cultural, emotional, and physical development of its participants.
In carrying out its activities this year, Page has contributed greatly to our college life. Its sponsoring of Fletcher Pratt, a well-known free lance magazine writer and author since 1925, was one of the most outstanding events. It purchased the music for "The Messiah” this year, joined the Metropolitan Opera Company, and greatly helped our various college athletes in advertising.
The regular monthly meetings were educational, lots of fun, and of great help to all of Page’s supporters. As much home talent as possible was utilized, and the musical and reading programs given by its own members were very successful. Many of the teachers had been drafted by Page, and many interesting and worthwhile talks were given by them as well.
Joseph Fink served as this year's president; Fred Willing, vice-president; Ethelanne Boden, secretary; Barbara Witmyer. treasurer; and Jerry Shervanick, curator. Special thanks to Miss Esther Lenhardt, whose guiding hand steered the society towards much of its success.
Page has served Millersvillc well throughout the ninety-six years of its existence. All can be proud of its record, and certain that its purpose, helping us to gain the poise and self-confidence necessary for us as the teachers of tomorrow, has been realized.
Standing before her library is Miss Esther I.enhardt who will retire this year after many faithful years of service.President... John Dougherty Vice-President . . Kugene Irwin Secretary... ..Eugene Moran Treasurer. John Michalcewiz
"Get your program here! Come on, you can't follow the game,without a program. Only fifteen cents!" When several husky varsity men come rushing up to you with these words, it isn't easy to say no. Just the same, it is a worthy cause, and the new fifteen-cent programs are very attractive with their full-color covers. They make swell souvenirs.
And when you stop to think about it, those guys with their black and gold sweaters and letters deserve some-support from the student body. They have put many gruelling hours into sports’ practices to give our teams improved records. They are tried and true men, for it isn't a cinch to get into the Men's Varsity Club. Every year the coaches of the different sports get together, not to have a stag party, but tc pick out the men they think ought to be taken into the club. Autocratic, you say? Not quite, because if the club doesn't approve of a recommendation, that man doesn't get in (But who has heard of anyone not making it?). The first year they get their letters; the next, their sweaters, if they deserve them.
But all it isn't work for these fellows. Twice a year they sponsor events here on campus that are well-known —and well-attended. In the fall it's the Varsity Drag" —just about the year’s top social event. It’s just a matter of which man has the strongest mangier grip when the group is choosing the Varsity Sweetheart to reign at the "Drag" and Homecoming Day festivities. Incidentally, the club makes all nominations and elects the Queen—no outsiders on this matter! When things are finally ironed out between members on the Queen deal, then they begin battling over the Spring Hop. Their planning methods pay off, since both of these events arc always successful, especially so this year, and the college appreciates the bone-crushing and rib-cracking that went into the planning.
Other activities? Oh, plenty. Who buys all the food that the Women’s Varsity Club sells at games? You guessed it! And Who edits and has printed these attractive programs? You’re smart!
All in all, here’s a swell bunch of fellow;, who make this campus kind of a nice place to attend.VARSITY SWEETHEART
Homecoming Day this year was highlighted by a new and eye-catching ceremony. Previously, the girl to be crowned the new Varsity Sweetheart was not revealed until the Drag. However, this year she was introduced at half-time at the football game.
To the tune of "If I Knew You Were doming I'd a Baked a Cake," she was carried onto the football field in a giant cardboard cake by 6 white-jacketed bakers. With a burst of paper and ' Let Me Call You Sweetheart" playing in the background, this year’s Varsity Sweetheart rose from the cake to lx- presented with a bouquet of roses and seated nearby to reign over the remainder of the game.
Varsity Club's choice this year was Janet Belscr, a pretty blue-eyed blonde from blizabethtown. Janet, a typical college coed—lively and full of fun—is a sophomore in the kindergarten primary curriculum. Janet is a familiar, snappy figure on the M'villc cheering squad— in fair or foul weather she's on the sidelines cheering the boys on to victory.
Black and Gold, Fight Fight! Black and Gold. Fight Fight! Black and Gold, Black and Gold, Fight, Team, Fight ! ! !’
Those peppy cheerleaders were at it again. With their constant vitality and high spirits the "8 lassies and a lad" were seen at every sports event of the college. Football games—cheering for a touchdown, basketball games—urging the players on, pep rallies—leading the school body in those victory yells—but it wasn't all fun for them either. Practicing for hours to gain precision and rhythm, seeing only snatches of a game, and plain hard work were all behind those yells—more reason why we were behind our faithful cheerleaders to the "nlb" degree—supporting them and our teams.
Much credit should be given to their able coach. Miss Dixon, and their energetic captain, Floyd Doner. As for the rest of the squad, it can only be said— Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar
All for the cheerleaders stand up and holler Yeah ! ! !”GIRLS’ VARSITY CLUB Club member. Anil who is it who is al-
ways waiting to sell you that program or appetizing hot ilog at the football games?—Why a Varsity Club girl, of course!
Those ’gals’’ who were hurrying around last fall looking for fourteen inch socks, turtles. Hys, and composing songs or writing proposals were only going through the initiation to enter this organization. Real work precedes this fun, however, for a varsity letter must be earned in cither field hockey or basketball. When three of these arc-earned by a member, she is given a black blazer trimmed in gold and bearing the club insignia.
Remember the slogan "Freeze out Kutztown"? Who could forget it? The Girls' Varsity Club made that famous on Homecoming Day with the miniature "North Pole" on the island of our lake. Igloo, penguin, and even snow caused much comment and earned the girls first prize for their unique decoration.
Speaking of earning things, the girls, under the capable direction of their of ficers, certainly deserve a word of thanks from all of us for their little services which we take so much for granted.

This year saw the formation of the Inter-Fraternity Council. This council is composed of Phi Sigma Pi, Alpha Phi Omega, and Iota Lambda Sigma Fraternities. The purpose of this council is to provide a means for better co-operation among the fraternities.
Members of the council are the presidents and secretaries of each of these organizations. The Intcr-Fratcr-nity Council acts only as an advisory body for the fraternities, making recommendations for cooperative action. The council is also charged with the care of the Fraternity Room which is used jointly by the three groups. This year, the major project of the council was the preparation of the Inter-Fraternity Ball.
Membership on this year’s council included from Phi Sigma Pi: Robert Mayer, president; Clarence Wcik, secretary; from Alpha Phi Omega: Rudolph Miller, president; James Eschbach, secretary; and from lota Lambda Sigma Curtis Gable, president; and Ronald Kiehl, secretary.PHI SIGMA PI
Phi Sigma Pi, a national honorary professional education fraternity for men in teacher training institutions, strives toward a dual purpose- that of advancing educational ideals through superior scholarship and of promoting closer fellowship and social intercourse among men of like ideals, interested in the same end, and striving for a higher social expression.
On this campus Sigma Chapter of Phi Sigma Pi was organized in 1934. New members are accepted through invitation only and must be exemplary upperclassmen with an overall scholastic average of at least 2.73. As part of his initiation, each candidate is required to write a thesis on his philosophy of education in his major field.
Candidates are initiated, via the usual paddlings and midnight walks, and formally inducted as new members at the beginning of each semester
A Christmas party was held for members, honorary
faculty members, and alumni just before the holiday vacation. A short address was given by Dr. Robb of the college placement bureau on the job situation for teachers.
The highlight of the year's program was the Inter-Fraternity Ball which also was Phi Sigma Pi’s Founders Day Banquet. The affair was a dinner-dance attended by the members of the various fraternities on campus and their alumni. It was, as it is every year, a huge success and proved very enjoyable to those who attended.
The officers for 1930-31 were Robert Mayer, president: Guenter H. W. Steffan, vice president; Clarence Wcik, secretary: Frank Schrack. treasurer; and Curtis Gable, historian. Paul Mickey served as chairman of the standing Social Committee and Mr. John B. Shenk of the Industrial Arts Department was the fraternity's faculty adviser.IOTA LAMBDA SIGMA
The Iota chapter of Iota Lambda Sigma fraternity comprises the best of our Industrial Arts students. The fraternity, which is the National Professional Industrial Education Fraternity, was installed on our campus in 1935. Its functions arc to provide for the professional growth of its members and for the recognition of outstanding •scholarship in the field of industrial education.
A minimum of twelve semester hours in industrial education courses is one requirement for membership eligibility. The Other requirement, which is the most difficult to meet, is a quality point average of 2.75 in industrial education courses.
In the fall semester, the fraternity initiated into its ranks ten new members. Following the formal initiation ceremony, a portrait of the head of the Industrial Arts Department, Dr. Burl N. Osburn, was presented. The portrait was painted by Gardiner Criswell of Columbia
who teaches at M.S.T.C. during the summer. It was hung in the Industrial Arts Building.
Each year, the chapter takes upon itself the completion of a project which »s presented to the college. This year, the project was the construction of a sign bearing the name of the old gymnasium. This sign was placed on the front of the building. As a means of procuring a name for this place where students have whiled away countless hours, a contest was sponsored by the fraternity.
This year's officers were Curtis W. Gable, president; Richard K. Shifter, vice-president; Ronald A. Kiehl, secretary-treasurer; and replacing Carl I.. Guss, who graduated in January, was Charles Wetzel, historian. Charles Wilde, who began the year as secretary-treasurer, was replaced upon his return to the U. S. Army. Advisers for the fraternity are Mr. Paul Eshelman and Dr. Norman Pendcrcd.ALPHA PHI OMEGA
To assemble college men in the fellowship of the Scout oath and law, to develop friendship and promote service to humanity’' This is the purpose of Alpha Phi Omega as set forth in the national constitution; and to be eligible for membership in this fraternity, one must be a Scout or a former one.
In keeping with its purpose. Alpha Phi Omega conducted a vast service program this year. At the beginning of each semester the fraternity operated the "Used Book Sales" in the old gym which resulted in substantial savings to the student body. Many members readily rendered assistance at the "Inservice Teachers” and "Atomic Energy" conferences by acting as guides and checking coats. The Homecoming Day program was suc-
cessfully planned and executed by the fraternity with Russell Maison as chairman of the program. By helping to extend the four freedoms to world, the fraternity took part in the "Crusade for Freedom" campaign and secured 465 signatures. The "Christmas Star" was again placed outside the dormitory and members ushered at the "Messiah." A.P.O. also played host to the "Senior Scout Ball" for the second year and sponsored a "Gibbers" Training Program." The "Ugly Man" contest to raise funds for charity brought lots of humor and fun to the campus.
With the motto—"Leadership—Friendship—Service" as a guide. Alpha Phi Omega successfully executed its varied and extensive program.
-Ml) KAPPA MU
With the acquisition of a greater understanding of mathematics and its place in our world today as its central aim, Mu Kappa Mu has completed another highly successful year.
l-ach monthly meeting was carefully planned by the program committee chairman, Richard Souser. One meeting was devoted to a demonstration of Monroe Calculating machines. In another meeting, the theme was "The Correlation between Biology and Mathematics.''
The display which Mu Kappa Mu produced lor Homecoming was one of its many campus activities. The club sponsored the Mathematics Conference for In-Service Teachers, during which a contest was held for the hand-
made teaching devices that were submitted for criticism and judgment.
l or the third successive year, Mu Kappa Mu invited all the high schools in M.S.T.C.'s service area to participate in a competitive mathematics test. The individual prizes offered were fifteen dollars, ten dollars, and five dollars, plus several honorable mentions. Through this type of activity the club extends its influence all over the campus and directly into our service area.
Richard Gxklcy. president; Steven Palkovic, vice-president, l.ee Meredith, secretary; and Neil Wolfe, treasurer; worked hand-in-hand with Dr. Lee Boyer, faculty adviser, to make this year an outstanding one m the history of Mu Kappa Mu.DELTA PHI ETA
Leadership- -Service—Scholarship—Character—These are the four "voices" which blend into the "harmony" known on campus as Delta Phi Eta. This year the "lucky thirteen" were initiated into the sorority. But "lucky" isn't the word to describe these girls. Before initiation, each girl was "auditioned" and accepted on the basis of her ability to harmonize" into the theme of the sister-hood.
The soprano of the sorority is leadership. This ideal is one which is characteristic of the members of Delta Phi Hta. The alto is carried by sendee—'Doughnuts for sale'—'Get your milk here’—Just two of the services
which Delta Phi Eta offers on campus. Blending into the harmony is the tenor, scholarship. To be eligible for the sorority a girl must maintain at least a quality point of average of 3.00. And as the bass is a necessity in any well-rounded harmony, so the sorority has adopted character as the basic "voice" in its theme.
Under the guiding batons of Dean Ruby Boggs and Miss Ethel Powell, honorary members, the officers of the sorority have worked hard this year to produce a more perfect harmony. The officers were Janet Kurtz, president; Dorothy Morgan, vice-president; Catherine Shenk, secretary; and Ruth Bassler, treasurer.STUDENT CHRISTIAN
Throughout the years, the Student Christian Association has contributed much toward the spiritual life of its members and other students on the M.S.
T.C. campus. The regular Wednesday evening meetings of the S.C.A. offer fellowship, spiritual guidance and inspiration, friendship, and fun.
The S.C.A. on the Millcrsville campus is the combined Y.M.C.A. and YAV.C.A. It has regional and national affiliation with the Student Christian Movement and has worked cooperatively with local college Y.M.'s, Y.W.'s, and S.C.A.'s in conference and social activities.
Vesper Services are held regularly each Sunday evening. This half-hour of hymns, prayers, meditative talks, and quiet music gives one spiritual strength and inner peace and quiet.
The Cabinet, composed of officers, committee co-chairmen, and advisers, plan the weekly programs and see that all S.C.A. activities are carried out effectively.
A variety of programs was scheduled on the year's calendar. The "Get-together Party" for the freshmen and old members in September ushered in another successful year of S.C A. activities. Ensuing programs included the showing of the film "One God; The Ways We Worship Him” speakers, singing favorite songs and hymns, treasure hunts, and a series of discussions, movies, and speakers on the topic of courtship, marriage, and family relationships.
Again this year, the S.C.A. participated in the Spiritual Enrichment Week activities and sponsored the World Student Service project on campus. They also participated in such community activities as Church Reception Night, community Lenten services, and knitting clothing for needy persons overseas.
As customary, S.C.A sponsored the annual Christmas caroling tour throughout the town.
Officers were James Miller, president; Jean Esben-shade, vice-president; Phyllis Mcngcl, secretary; Carolyn Morton, treasurer. Advisers were Miss Ethel J. Powell, Miss Coral Melson. Mr. William Duncan, and Dr. Paul Rummel.NEWMAN CLUB
It is ten years since our local chapter tirst became affiliated with the National Federation of Newman Clubs. In that time, this organization has served as a medium of contact between the Catholic Church and her members matriculating at the college.-
With Gerald Barger as chairman of the Program Committee, the meetings this year have accomplished much in helping its members maintain a close contact with their church.
At these bi monthly meetings, priests, informed laymen, and students give addresses which are openly discussed by the members.
Rev. William P. Bridy serves as Chaplain for the group and is a key figure m all discussions.
The Social Committee, headed by Steve Palkovic, is in charge of two events each year—a Christmas party and a spring picnic.
The officers of the club who have served faithfully and efficiently for this year are: Louis Santone. president: Jerome Shervanick, vice-president; and Joan Herr, secretary-treasurer.
LUTHERAN STUDENT ASSOCIATION
The Lutheran Student Association is one of the three religious organizations on the MSTC campus. Through varied religious activities it aims to contribute to the members' spiritual life. These activities arc conducted with the cooperation of the local Lutheran churches and their ministers.
The organization holds brief worship programs every two weeks. Probably the most impressive of these programs was held during the Christmas season when the members sang the familiar Christmas carols during their candlelight service.
Other activities included a series of meetings on Bible study at which time-leaders led discussions on the important books of the Bible. In November two delegates were sent to the Gettysburg Area Conference of the I..S.A. at Gettysburg College.
The year’s activities were guided by the adviser. Miss Esther Lenhardt, and the following officers: president, James Mohr; vice-president, Carolyn Morton; secretary, Susan Wentz; and treasurer, Larue Gluntz.MEN’S
In the men's dormitory here on campus, MCA is a watchword standing for Men's Community Association. The MCA is an organization that to the men means friendship and lots of good times for everyone. The meeting place of the Association is in the "dungeons' below the men's dorm. This spot is known to all as the canteen.
Here the men have set up a refreshment stand where soft drinks, pretzels, potato chips, ice cream, and candy arc sold in the evening. Also the group has pinched its pennies so that it could afford a television set. This year the boys invested in a brand new floor model set with a 19" screen. The old set was raffled off. The reason for the new set? So that more could enjoy the wrestling and boxing matches.
Some of the other activities of the Men’s Community Association are laundry sales and socials, in which free smokes are the order of the evening. Included in the social life of the canteen are card tables, dart boards, ping-pong tables, and checker and chess sets.
All in all, the Men's Community Association means but one thing to the men living in the dormitory—a swell gathering place with lots of laughs and good times.
The officers of the organization this year were Eugene Moran, president; Joseph Fink, vice-president; Curtis Gable, secretary; and Thomas King, treasurer.WOMEN’S
We've had some grand times in our dormitory life— haven’t we? We'll never forget the "bull sessions" we had whenever the opportunity arose or when time permitted them (when time didn't permit them, too). Who could ever forget those unwelcome lire drills at 2:00 A. M.??? Mass meetings, signing in and out, night lineups, room inspections, study hours are all part of dorm life.
Yes, and then there's always housecleaning for Parents’ Day in October and Open House in the spring. (But we do clean oftener than for these two occasions, really!)
September is always the month for the Big-Little Sister Party when the juniors treat their little sisters— the freshman girls. For Homecoming Day, the dorm girls decorated the front and side of the dormitory with black and gold pennants 3nd a large banner "It’s a Fall for Kutztown." The balcony was also decorated with cornstalks and pennants.
W.C.A. carried out several new activities this year. Notable among them were the fashion show in November and the monthly birthday dinners in the cafeteria. Colorful and attractive table decorations were planned by the birthday committee. Monthly teas were also planned in cooperation with the day students.
This year’s officers were: Lena Bortner, president; Dorothy Morgan, vice-president; Jane Ulsh, secretary; Jane Ritchey, treasurer.
Officers of W. C. A.—Reading clockwise: Jane Ulsh, Secretary; Dorothy Morgan, Vice-President; Lena Bortner, PresidentJane Ritchey, Treasurer.WOMEN’S DAY STUDENT ASSOCIATION
MEN’S DAY STUDENT ASSOCIATION
This organization has its home in the basement of "Ye Ole' Gym," and, judging from the friendly'chatter permeating its walls, the MDSA is more popular than ever.
These rooms offer stiff competition to Brooks Hall; walk in any time and chances are you'll find any number of sporting activities in full swing—darts, checkers, chess, and hearts all test the physical and mental prowess of our men. Football, baseball, basketball, or be bop keep the radio in almost constant use. A Halloween party. Pennsylvania week exhibit, and chess and checker tournaments arc only a few of the activities in its varied program.
We have the past officers, advisers, and members as well as the present ones to thank for helping the MDSA come into its own and improve each year. Our congratulations to Henery Kcncagy, president; Guenter Steffan, vice-president; Robert Mayer, secretary; Ken Harderode, treasurer; Joseph Torchia, faculty adviser, and members, each one of whom has made this organization so popular and worth-while.
At any time of the day from 8:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon, one can find much activity in the day student rooms which arc located beneath the veranda on front campus. Groups of girls can be found talking "fast and furiously," while here or there one can always find some student attempting to concentrate. The radio, and fashion magazines to which the association subscribes, give opportunity during moments of leisure. Card games (fourth for bridge!) are also popular.
The Women's Day Students are an active group on campus. Their various social activities during the year add much to campus life. Each year they sponsor several teas and a Cider Pour to which all students and faculty arc invited. The appointed committees act as hostesses at these times.
The annual Christmas Party is always a big event, the girls decorate their lounge in a true Christmas spirit. This year they had a huge Christmas tree which reached to the ceiling. Carol singing, exchanging of gifts and refreshments (food, that is!) are part of this affair.

A comparatively new organization on campus, the Radio Association, is a group of men who have a common interest binding them together—that of radio and electronics. The purposes of the club are to cultivate an interest in this field on the campus, and to aid members in obtaining their amateur radio operators' licenses.
The association maintains a radio broadcasting station (here at the college). Their headquarters are on the ground door of the men's dormitory. From this point the members of the club arc often in contact with "hams" in all parts of this country, and other parts of the world at times. The call letters of the Radio Association 3re W3QDC.
Other activities of the group include service projects for the school, such as providing the equipment and manpower necessary for the broadcasting of announcements and music on the college campus at special occasions, such as Homecoming Day and the pre-Christmas holiday season.
ROD AND GUN CLUB
The Rod and Gun Club, in its revamped position as a result of a com-piete overhauling in 1950, is now a compact group of twenty-two active members striving to make the club a significant one on campus. Under the able guidance of President Richard Freeman, the meetings of the club have been revitalized to the extent that one hundred percent attendance has been achieved.
The Rod and Gun Club are chartei members of the National Rifle Association of America and arc in the process of forming a rifle team for the purpose of competing in the NRA Intercollegiate Program. The members of the team arc-picked from the club's ranks; members posting high scores in intra-squad matches are chosen to represent the club in intercollegiate competition. Intrasquad matches are held on the club's own rifle range in the basement beneath the men's dormitory.
The officers of the club for 1950-51 were Richard Freeman, president; Gordon Leftingwell, vice-president; Clermont Bubb, secretary; and Allan Gray, treasurer.INDUSTRIAL ARTS SOCIETY
The activities of the Industrial Arts Society during the year have again contributed toward keeping the standards of the Industrial Arts Department high. This society helps to make the men of the Industrial Arts Curriculum more efficient in their profession. With a membership of nearly 200, the clun had an ample amount of power to carry out a solid program of professional study and service to the college community.
A highlight in this year's program was a demonstration on the ancient art of whittling given by Reverend Bare of Lancaster. More material for thought and study was supplied by a talk given by Henry Kauffman of our Industrial Arts Department who ably shed some light on the rigors of having a book published.
A project which has been undertaken by the club, and in which an appreciable amount of progress was realized during the year was the enlargement of the Industrial Arts Department's library. The fact that most of its members were aspiring to a career in the teaching profession was always kept in mind when the various activities were planned.
Dr. Burl Osburn, head of the Industrial Arts Department, is adviser. A major shakeup of the officers of the club occurred when its president, Charles Wilde, was recalled to the service of his country. Following his departure, the officers for the year were: Charles Emery, president; Harold Huber, secretary; Jerome Shervanick, treasurer; and William Wenker, historian.THEATRE ARTS CLUB
Behind the scenes of the plays presented in the chapel is the Theatre Arts Club. This organization, whose function is the staging of dramatic productions, is an auxiliary to Citamard, whose adviser is Miss Esther Lcn-hardt. The Senior Play, the Citamard production, and all other dramatic events depend on their ingenuity for
Consisting of a score or more men in the Industrial Arts Curriculum, this organization possesses the necessary talent for building scenery, taking care of stage property, lighting, producing sound effects, and many odds and ends that must be attended to in a play.
The club has been in operation since 1939, having at present Dr Pendered as its adviser The expense that would be incurred by purchasing the scenery and props and by paying for the labor and talent provided by this organization would be considerable. Like the actors in the plays they present, they enjoy their work and receive no remuneration tor it.
The '50-'5l officers of this versatile and indispensable organization were Paul Reid, director; Luke Brosius, assistant director; Charles Wetzel, secretary-treasurer; and Ralph Dyson, electrician.PRIMARY CLUB
The Association for Childhood Education, a student branch of the International Association for Childhood Education, concerns itself with the problems of the kindergarten and elementary grades.
The adviser, Miss Charlotte Good, and the new officers were introduced to the new and old members of the association at a "Get Acquainted" meeting in the fall. Other interesting and informative programs were planned by the president, Jane Ulsh, and the adviser.
A panel discussion, led by last year's graduates, was held in November. Their topic was "Problems of a Beginning Teacher." At Christmas, Mary Ann Schmcll and Miss Jenkins gave a piano recital, and Mrs. Biemes-derfer told a Christmas story. At the last meeting of the first semester, the Laboratory School supervisors conducted a demonstration on the use of construction materials.
Miss Marie Vattcr, a teacher at the Lancaster School for Retarded Children, spoke at the initial meeting of the second semester on the topic, "Retardation of children.” Later in the year a film, "Johnny Learns his Manners," was shown. The year’s activities closed with a banquet held in Lancaster for the members.
Other officers for the ‘5 )-'51 school term were: vice-president, Shirley Weaver; secretary, Mary Ann Wood; treasurer, Clarice Strassburger; and program chairman, Barbara SmithLIBRARY SCIENCE CLUB
The Library Science Club opened its school year with a weiner roast to welcome back old members and to greet those freshmen interested in library science.
Monthly meetings provide for discussions of library problems and thus aid members in developing a greater understanding of the relationship between the library, the school, and the community.
The club sponsored the Fourth Annual High School Library Club Conference this fall. It was very well attended by many schools in this area. The club was also host to the Sixth Annual Eastern Pennsylvania School Library Conference in the spring.
A series of Sunday evening book reviews were sponsored by the club.
This year's activities were steered by the following officers: Mrs. Virginia Boyd, president; Barbara Witmycr, vice-president; Maxine Gross, secretary; and Sarah Senft, treasurer. Miss Ganser served as club adviser.
Again this year, the English Club conscientiously followed its primary aim of providing basic programs designed to satisfy all students interested in the appreciation of the English language.
The initial meeting of the school year was a weiner roast in the picnic grove. Another club social was the traditional Christmas program, including carol singing, reading of Christmas stories, and refreshments. At the October meeting. Dr. Brightbill told the members about her experiences during her visit to Mexico.
The English Club proudly sponsored the visit of a contemporary literary figure to the Millcrsville campus. Under the able direction of their club adviser, Dr. Lingenfelter, the English Club was able to secure John Holmes, Tufts poet, as a guest speaker in November. Last year, John Ciardi, Holmes' student and another promising contemporary poet, was a guest speaker at M.S.T.C.
Officers were: William Mink, president; Marilyn Young, vice-president; Helen Witmer, secretary; and Mrs. Lillian Broome, treasurer.BASSLER GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY
This organization completed its fourth successful year on the Millersville campus. Named in honor of Professor Harry M. Bassler, Director of the Geography Department here at Millersville, the society strives to supplement the student's knowledge of geography and to develop his interest in the appreciation of the subject.
The membership of the society was composed of majors and minors in the held of geography. Meetings were held each month featuring a guest speaker, with an unusual knowledge of some geographic subject, who lectured, led discussions, and usually presented visual aids to enrich the members' understanding.
The club's treasurer, Allen Clay, entered the United States Navy early in the year, so his duties were taken over by the secretary, John Elbin. Other officers were Thomas King, president; and Rudolph Miller, vice president.
RODDY SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY
During this, the third year since its reorganization in 1949, the Roddy Scientific Society held as its aim the advancement of a greater understanding and interest in science.
Under the leadership of Thomas King, president, the society participated in several outstanding campus activities. Among these activities were the society's Homecoming display, assistance with the Conference on Atomic Energy, and the establishment of correspondence with alumni members. Another contribution which the society made to our campus was the equipping of the biology laboratory with black shades for use during film projection.
Other officers of the society are Robert Hostetler, vice-president; Phyllis Men-gcl, secretary; John Elbin, treasurer; and Henry Kencagy, historian. Faculty advisers for the society are Mr. Caulwell and Mr. Koken.SOCIAL STUDIES CLUB
Introducing—a new organization on campus—the Foreign Language Club.
At the close of the first semester, language majors and minors decided to try to organize a club in which they could share their interest in their field. After a very successful first meeting, the club elected Allen Eckert as president; Frank Schrack, vice-president; Vivian Stone, secretary; and Lenore Charnigo, treasurer.
The primary purpose of F. L. C. is to bring together language majors and minors as well as other students interested in languages. Through varied programs, F. L. C. aims to give every language student at least an acquaintance with the languages other than his own major or minor.
Miss Emily Snyder and Mr. Theodore Rupp arc advisers to the club.
The Social Studies Club began its second year on the MSTC campus this fall. The guiding lights of the organization were its president, Robert Mayer, and Dr. Virginia Beck, adviser. The club made it possible for majors and minors in the social studies field to share their interests and to discuss the teaching of social studies.
The club was in charge of registration for the Atomic Energy Conference held at MSTC in November. They also participated in decorating the campus for Homecoming Day.
Again this year, the members conscientiously strived to carry out their aims and objectives: to gain and promote a better understanding of the present political situation, to make students more conscious of historical facts, and to receive advice concerning the teaching of history.
Other officers of the club were John Plymyer, vice-president; Grace Gamble, secretary; and Elizabeth Falkenstinc, treasurer.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLUBCHOIR
That "Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast" is a well-founded truism when one listens to our choir burst forth in song. Under the able direction of Melzer R. Porter and Mrs. Joseph Torchia, the choir has served the college faithfully and well throughout the many years of its existence.
Every Thursday evening without fail we listeners could hear in the distance the beautifully blended tones which characterize our choir at its best. Its director and members gave up one evening a week, often more, so that we, too, could reap the benefit of its labor. They realized that long, tedious hours of patient practice are necessary for them to produce such enjoyable programs, which ranged from chapel hymns, a production of Gilbert and Sullivan, a Bach Choral Fugue, to an inspiring chorus from Handel's "Messiah.”
The choir had a full and varied schedule this year as always. Its ninety-one men and women sang at many chapel programs throughout the year. The annual Christmas concert was a salient feature of its work. The major portion of the ''Messiah” was presented in December, with solos rendered by Sidnic Ann Walker, Shirley Snader, and Patricia Gehman, sopranos; Sara Rudy, Dawn Moser, and Ann T. Johnstone, altos; John A. Myers, tenor; and H. Nelson Friedly, Jr., bass.
In addition to this, the treble choir sang for the Lancaster Musical Arts Society at ’the Iris Club in February. "The Blessed Damozel,” by Claude Dcv-bussy was performed. With such presentations, one can sec what kept our Thursday evening warblers occupied.ORCHESTRA
Music! Music! Music! The sounds emanating from Room R every Tuesday afternoon may not at all times be the sweetest music this side of heaven, but they do represent the tireless and faithful work of our twenty member orchestra. The eavesdroppers may squirm at the somewhat torturous ordeal known as the tuning-up exercises, but when Samuel S. Harnish raises his baton and the strings, woodwinds, percussion, and the brass blended together, the net results are a pleasant melody and a satisfied listener.
The orchestra rendered musical selections for the senior play, various Citamard productions, and junior high school chapel programs; they furnished the musical background for the Choir’s performance of the "Messiah.” The director and members deserve the thanks and congratulations from us all for their fine work throughout the year.Every Monday and Wednesday around four o’clock many of us have heard the Millersville State Teachers College hand practicing for its concerts, pep rallies, and football drills. The band faithfully attends and marches at all home football games. It gave a magnificent display of its talents on Homecoming Day. Playing "If 1 Knew You Were Cornin'. I'd a Baked a Cake," the band formed a heart on the football field and Varsity Sweetheart, Janet Belser, broke through a decorative cake placed in the center of the heart.
Much credit goes to Mr. George R. Anderson, director of the band, for his patience in making our band what it is. Lee Meredith, a senior, was elected student director of the band this year. Joyce
McCrancy was elected secretary, and Gladys Hartzel served as head majorette.
On January 10th the band gave a fine chapel performance playing a varied program.
The annual spring concert of the band was given in March and played before a capacity audience. Edwin Franko Goldman, a nationally known bandsman. was guest conductor. It was a great experience to be able to hear our Millersville band under the baton of such a fine musician; but even greater was the feeling of those who actually played under the inspiring director.
We are proud of our band at Millersville and rightly so.I INEMEN
First row: Hoover, Zinkavick, Bissingcr, Irwin, Paviglianiti, Chiccino, Wcik. Second row: Walls, Overdorf, Lemon, Harcelrodc, Stone, James, Smith, King. Third row: Croce, Binkley, Graham, Woodruff, Garland, Applegate. Alexander, Hockcnbrogh.
The 1950 football log at Millersville is one that coaches can hold out as an example when they urge a green, losing, team to plug until they begin to click. At the halfway mark in the season it looked as though the team wasn't going to garner a single victory. Then came the cfash! With six defeats to their credit, the boys began to click and were able to win their final pair of games by the convincing score of 25-6 in each encounter.
The first of the victories was brought to the victor)1 starved campus on one of the most successful and eventful Homecoming Days in the history of the school. It was against Kutztown and it featured the sparkplug passing of Patsy D Amico and fine carrying of Frank Neail and Gabe Geiger. Outstanding also were an interception by Ken Harclerode and a pitchout to Klugh for a sensational run around right end for a tally. The second victory came against Mansfield which was also a well played game.
This turnabout did not come through the working of some miracle, however. Hard luck had played havoc
with the Marauders all through the season.- Many of the players had turned in great performances before the two victories. Notable was the fine job turned in by Tom Heckard against West Chester when he played both offensive fullback and line backer. The three seniors. Gene Irwin, who received the most valuable player award, "Stump'' Garrett, and George King played outstanding ball all the way. John Smith, Luther Stone, "Clutch” Weik, Bob Peffley, and Don Klugh always did well. Their ranks were joined when D'Amico began hitting Applegate and Alexander more frequently. The line with Garland and Wilson or Heckard backing up were beginning to squelch more attacks. Linemen like Chiccino, Croce, Hoover, and Walls were beginning to work well. Under the guiding hand of Coach John Fischer, Millersville was acquiring a winning team.
Next year will probably be a great one in the annals of Millersville football history if grades and draft arc-kind. This green squad will have been moulded into a strong capable nucleus of a team which will be able to "bring home the bacon" frequently.
First row: D'Amico, Garrett, Carabba, Geiger, Letrinko, Peffley. Second row: Caddcn, Art , Randall, Wilson, Grill, Neail, Heckard.Dougr

A string of brilliant performances interrupted occasionally by "low” nights—this describes the 1950-51 season of the Millersvillc basketball team. The heights were familiar to our squad, while the depths were not entirely unknown. As a whole the season was extremely successful with a final log of 14 wins against 6 losses.
The season was begun on a dizzying height with a 101-49 rout of Kings College of Delaware and ended similarly with a double victory over our proud arch-rival. West Chester. Between these accomplishments we hit peaks such as double barreled victories over Shippensburg and a very formidable East Stroudsburg five, a rout of Elizabethtown to establish county supremacy, and a staggering 103-59 score over Kutztown. We also hit a few'depths such as a loss to LaSalle made possible by
very poor foul shooting, defeats at the hands of Blooms-burg and Indiana, a heartbreaking loss to Elizabethtown while Pete Kramer was out sick, and the lowest point of all, a loss to lowly Kutztown.
Tribute must be paid to all the squad, both the varsity and the JV's who lost only two games. The work of our twin guards, Kline and Kramer, aided and abetted by A1 Belczyk was great. Rebel Weaver and Captain Bernhardt were outstanding in their senior year, as was the remarkable improvement of Lin Price. Giant Ed Griss-inger was steady and dependable at the pivot post, and Cake Alexander helped greatly when he was able to play in the latter part of the season.
We are looking forward to more of these banner years from Coach Max Bishop and his squad.

Coach Ted Rupp's Millersville wrestling squad climaxed an extremely successful season by decisively winning the State Teachers College Tournament. The Rupp-men piled up 43 points against 29 for West Chester. 26 for Lock Haven, 16 for Edinboro, and 8 points for Indiana. Individual champions were taken for the victors by Jerry Shcrvanick, Johnny Meys, Bobby Brown, Doppy Doherty, and Tucker Waters. Millersville's Skeeter Kemp and Bob King took third places and Pete Yasenchak garnered a fourth place. Eight points for falls rounded out the Marauder's scoring in winning their second State Teachers College title in the past three years.
The season's log shows seven wins, one loss and one draw in the nine dual meets wrestled. Lock Haven held a patched-up Marauder line-up to a 13-13 draw in one of the season s best home meets. Against a strong West Chester team which nosed out Lock Haven 15-14, the
Ruppmen recorded a decisive 23-7 victory at the Ram's own gym. The remaining six wins were breezes for our powerful squad.
The lone defeat suffered by Millersville was at the hands of a powerful Wayncsburg team which had two national A.A.U. champions in their lineup. Our squad held the powerful Westcrn-Pennsylvania team to a 14-12 score and tossed a definite scare into their camp. Actually each team won four bouts, but the margin of victory for Waynesburg was a fall recorded by national champ, Tony Gizoni, over the Marauders' pride and joy, Jerry Shcrvanick. This was the first time Jerry had been pinned in his entire career and ended a long streak of dual meet victories stretching through high school and college.
The student body says, "Hats off!" to Ted Rupp and his boys for a brilliant season. The outlook for the future is exceedingly bright—providing Uncle Sam's last word isn't too decisive.

Heralding the coming of spring on the Millersville campus was the sharp crack of baseball bats against horsehide. Yes, baseball season was back and hopes ran high for a successful record.
This season Max Bishop was relying on the ability of returning lettermen Ken Stoner, Gene Irwin, John Michalcewiz, Rocky Moran, Al Eckert, and Bill Wilson plus the moundwork of veteran pitchers Jim Mohr and Walt Kreider. Good results were also expected for Al Bclczyk, a transfer student with an excellent pitching record at his former school. These men formed the nucleus of this year's team.
Climaxing the 1950 baseball season was Jim Mohr's exciting 3-2 win over West Chester. With two men out, Eckert, on third by an error and a hit from the bat ol co-captain, Jim Todd, scored on a wild throw on Wilson's grounder This game alone, which was played
right down to the last inning on our diamond, was enough to make the season a successful one from a statistical viewpoint. The ledger at the end of the season read six victories and five defeats. .Upon closer examination, however, we find grounds for claiming that the season was more than merely successful. The fact that the hitting was consistent rather than laden with power made the record more meritablc. The victory over West Chester proved the ability of the team to come through when the chips were down, while the win over Elizabethtown added to the local prestige of Bishop's boys.
The season's leading batsman was clean-up hitter. “Hips" Vengrin, who sent many hard drives down the base lines Bill Wilson and Ken Stoner, a freshman, also wielded consistent sticks. Co-captains, Jim Todd and Bill Cushman, lived up to their functions as steadying factors with timely hits and versatility afield.
1950 TENNIS SQUAD
First row: Newcomer, Moyer, Emery, Mayer. Second row: Coach Pucillo, Barnhart, Huber, Rcvene, Harkins, Manager Keays.
The 1950 edition of the Millersville tennis team enjoyed a successful season, posting a record of four victories and three defeats. Among the victories was a pair over Shippensburg Teachers, while Kutztown and Indiana also fell before the Marauder courtmen.
Leading the team, from the standpoint of records, was "Easy Ed" Moyer. Ed lost one match in his senior year, the only blemish on an otherwise perfect record compiled in his final two years of collegiate competition. Steady (and often spectacular) "Chuck" Emery, playing in the number one singles spot, met the toughest of opponents,
but always played a fine brand of tennis. The colorful team of Hank Huber and "Frenchy" Revene added greatly to the exploits of the squad.
The outlook for 1951 is definitely not bright. Coach Pucillo must replace such stars as Moyer, Revene and Huber, all of whom graduated. As an added blow Sam Harkins and Al Newcomer will not be around for next season. Returning to form a nucleus for the '51 squad are ace, Chuck Emery and reliable Red Barnhart. Who knows-perhaps the gods that regulate the outcome of tennis seasons will be kind to Millersville.GIRLS’ HOCKEY
"Hey gang, let's go—we just ’gotta' win this game!" Yes sir, ’Ole Dan Webster' would need to publish another dictionary to provide us with enough appropriate adjectives to describe our girls’ hockey team—the first undefeated, untied hockey team in Millcrsville's history! ! Scoring 31 points to only 2 of their opponents, the girls proved their worth by defeating Lock Haven, Lebanon Valley, Gettysburg, Shippensburg, Albright, and Moravian Colleges.
Not stopping with such a fine school record, however, these gals went on to compete in the All-College Tournament associated with the U. S. Field Hockey Association and the Central Pennsylvania and Mid-Eastern Tournaments. Three girls—Shirley Haebecker, Virginia Hampton, and Janet Thompson then went to Rochester, N. Y.
on an ''adventurous'' trip to compete in the National Tournament.
Hard work, co-operation, and fast playing—opposite-traits of the girls' mascot, Barly, a turtle named for the co-captains, Barbara McLeod and Shirley Myers, who are seniors—really helped the team 'bring home the bacon.'
Although the clatter of sticks hitting balls, the shouts of the team, and the glitter of victory has faded for this year, these kids who made the top and stayed there couldn't be less than tops with us all.
And so to Miss Griffith and Miss Dixon, the two untiring coaches, to the 'so-often-forgottcn' managers, and, of course, to the team members, we can only say, "Golly, gang, thanks millions for earning a record of which we at MSTC can all be proud!"
First row: Coach Griffith, Ruth, Hampton, Co-captain McLeod, Co-captain Myers, Thomson, Wiley, Assistant Coach Dixon. Second row: Higgins, Bclser, Mclick, Evans, Ulsh, Puscy, Ulmer, Read. Third row: McCullough, Haebecker, Wenger, Hasslcr, Black, Schork, Ward, Wiebush, Sea vers. Fourth row: Manager Metz, Manager Clerk, Manager Long, Bailey, Rogers, Anderson, Hagy, Dehart, Manager Trimble, Manager Groff.GIRLS’ BASKETBALL
First row: Shearer, Thomson, Co-captain Warner, Co-captain Ulsh, Shenk. Second row: Ulmer, Denlingcr, Smith, Black, Anderson, Sweitzer. Third row: Manager Eaton, Brown, Golden, Sauer-haum, Craft, Weaver, Coach Griffith. Fourth row: Manager Hartzcl, Parker, Mehring, Spangler, Haebecker, Wiebush.
Swish—the ball Hew through the air, bounced once or twice on the rim, 3nd then dropped through the ropes lor another basket! And so ended a tough season for the MSTC lassies.
Hard luck and rough competition were both against the girls this year, but they didn’t let that daunt them. In spite of it all, their energetic spirit and unceasing pep proved that they had the will to win, but could also accept defeat without a discouraging word. Their opponents—Albright, Elizabethtown, East Stroudsburg, Gettysburg, Lebanon Valley, Lock Haven, and Shippens-burg, may have won the game itself with more points, but our gals’ won, too. They won for themselves the feeling that they had tried their "darndest," worked and got that so vital team co-operation and spirit, and had a lot of fun besides. And to the rest of us here— well, they proved that they could take a defeat in their stride' and profit by the mistakes made. It is for that reason that we can be assured that with the return of many of the Varsity and Junior Varsity members, we can look forward to a more successful season.
To the seniors—Kay Shenk, Mary Alice Warner, and Phyllis Mengel, who won't be back to help towards that goal, go our good wishes, and to everyone—the coaches, the managers, and the team we want to say ’thanks’ for all the hard work and for ‘giving your all' when the ‘chips were down'.MILLERSVILLE COLLEGE COOPERATIVE STORE
