To the Class of 1953:
Congratulations to each one of you on completion of the requirements for graduation and for the baccalaureate degree. Your friends are happy in your accomplishments and the college is proud to number you among the thousands who bear the Millers-ville name.
Of the greatest significance is the fact that you have chosen to be teachers. It is not idle phrase-calling to say that teaching is. indeed, a high calling. Our earnest hope is that you may be truly great teachers, blessing the lives of those whom you teach and that you will find yourself thrice blest in the happiness and satisfaction that comes from enriching the lives of others.

A parting sigh—a smile—a promise—and our college career has come to an end.
Some of our sighs arc for the years which have sped so swiftly since we first heard an upperclassman yell, "Who do you love?" Some sighs are of regret for the friends we leave behind. Others are of relief for the exams and papers we’ve completed.
President Joseph Glass
Vice-President Frank Coons
Secretary Patricia Smith
Historian Mary Jane Fetherman
Some smiles are of pride and contentment because we have accomplished what we sometimes felt was impossible. Some smiles are of gratitude to our Alma Mater and to our parents for the encouragement they have given us. But mostly our smiles and sighs are full of hope for the promise of the future.
Treasurer Kenneth KlineVirginia Beck Dr. Beck, a member of the History Department, devotes most of her teaching time to correlating historical affairs with the literary aspects in the World Culture Course. Besides teaching history she enjoys reading historical novels and biographies.
Dr. Beck received her B.D., M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. She has been on the Millersvillc instructional staff for seven years.
Away from school many of her interests center around her newly built home. She admits a weakness for the Ogden Nash type of nonsense, and chocolate, in any form.
For the j ast four years Dr. Beck has guided the many undertakings of the senior class.
Louis G. Jennings
Mr. Jennings, though bom in New Jersey, resides in ILancaster with his wife and three children.
A graduate of Franklin and Marshall and Duke, and currently working at the University of Pennsylvania toward his doctorate. Mr. Jennings came to MillersviUe six years ago as a member of the English Department.
Included in his experience is service in the Army in Japan. He held the rank of captain.
His interests include reading, music, and languages, and on the lighter side he enjoys good food, travel, eight o’clock classes, and last but not least, Jimmie Durante.
As our class co-sponsor Mr. Jennings has been of great assistance to us in reaching our goal as seniors.

On November 4, 1952, the student body was shocked when James Wagner, popular member of the senior class, was fatally injured in an automobile accident at Mount-ville. Jim matriculated to Millersville in September, 1949, after graduating from Annvillc High School. He was enrolled in the Secondary Curriculum as social studies major and a general science minor. His extra curricular activities included Page Literary Society and Future Teachers of America. He had been a meml er of the freshman basketball team, and a mcml er of the “Marauder" baseball nine for three years. Jim will always be remembered for his pleasing personality and sociability. In his free time, he could usually lx. found discussing some topic of current events over a cup of coffee. Mere words can not express our affection for Jim; thoughts of him will always be with us.
OFFICERS: Secretary, Mabel Kee-mer; Treasurer, Sereno Walbom; Vice-President, Wallace Evans; President, Alfred Marcello.
Upon returning to the campus in September, the Juniors immediately set to work on various projects for this school year. For example, the female fraction of the class became “big sisters” to the freshmen girls.
Parent’s Day was first on the calendar of events, followed by Homecoming. For the latter, many hours went into the preparation of an attractive display, which ended up hanging in Rat Race because of inclement weather.
The highlight of the year came on December 5, when the Junior Prom was held in the ballroom of the Hotel Brunswick. This was the first time, in a period of years, that the prom was held off campus and made strictly formal.

“What is it that goes on four feet in the morning, on two at noon and on three in evening?” asked the Sphinx. The answer to this riddle was “Man”, who creeps on all fours as a child, walks erect as a man, and leans on a staff in his old age.
As freshmen, the class of ’55 had to crawl in order to familiarize themselves with college life. As sophomores, they were on their feet and laying the foundation for a successful future at Millersville. This year they had charge of freshmen hazing. Another event was adding color to our campus by decorating the faculty garages on Homecoming Day. The highlight of the year was the “Barn Yard Brawl”, an informal barn dance held in the Old Gym.
In the following years, the class hopes to be able to stand erect, never reaching the last stage of leaning on a cane.

S3Arriving at Millersville like kings and queens, we soon heard the words that leveled our pride, but in the end made us a closer part of our Alma Mater. “Who do you love?” "Who were your ancestors?" We. the lowly freshmen moaned, "What next?" But before we knew it, two short weeks were over and the first football victor ' removed the regalia and ended the humiliations.
Miss Datesman and Mr. Namit were appointed faculty advisors after which a vigorous election ensued. Morris Hoffman was elected president; Donald Wilson, vice-president; Carole Sensenig, secretary; and Madeline Keneagy, treasurer.
Then came final exams, but soon the sun came out again and it was spring. Our first college year with its many memories was over.

55The 1953 Touchstone
As we, the class of '53, stand upon the threshold of the untried and challenging tomorrow, may the pleasant memories and associations of the past four years at Mil-lersville reflect their light into our path.
May the 1953 TOUCHSTONE, with its facts, faces, and events, help each graduate to carry a bit of Millers-villc with him, and in later years bring back those memories which crown the pattern of life—planning; accomplishing; and savoring in memory what has been accomplished.
The editors of the 1953 TOUCHSTONE wish to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to all who have helped to make this publication a success. May we offer special thanks to our advisors, Dr. Mary Brightbill and Mr. John Shenk, who suggested ideas which have developed into realities.

Back in the dark ages when college men and women couldn't speak to each other, the men would snap their fingers to attract attention from the opposite sex. This is how our school newspaper got the name. Snapper.
Today the paper's excellent format and news coverage attract as much attention as the l)eaux of yesteryear. Mary Ann Kraft, editor, along with a capable staff, revised the paper by adding new headings and faces. Shirley Walter’s column "It Actually Hapjjens”, and sports editor, Joe Glass’s, "Kaleidoscope” were outstanding features this year. Emphasis was placed on girls’ athletics by Dian Shearer, girls’ sports editor, and Bob Good’s artistic talent added a touch of humor. Another impressive feature of this year’s Snapper was the color print for the Christmas issue.
A successful year with a successful paper!

Following the custom of past years, the Student Council again sponsored the Council Bounce, first informal dance of the year, which gives upperclassmen an opportunity to see each other after the long summer vacation, and new students a chance to become acquainted with their fellow students.
This year, for the first time, Council sponsored the Valentine Dance, at which was crowned a Queen of Hearts chosen by a vote of the entire student body.
Other services offered by this body are the publication of the Black and Gold Handbook,
operation of the Student Union Building and allocation of student activity funds. Each student, upon registration, becomes a member of the Student Association.
One representative is elected to Student Council from each class and one each from the Community Associations, the Day Student Associations. The president and two students at large are chosen by general election.
Officers of Student Council this year were Paul McCool, president; John Forney, vice-president; Kenneth Stoner, treasurer; and Lois Parker, secretary.I
Future Teachers of America
The James Pyle Wickersham Chapter of the Future Teachers of America is primarily concerned with the task of training future teachers; training them in leadership to accept the responsibilities which they will shoulder in their chosen profession. Another purpose of the organization is to acquaint students with the professional teaching organizations working to advance the profession.
The program committee this year presented an
interesting, varied program, which included the showing of the film “What Greater Gift”. As usual, the organization sponsored the annual High School Seniors Day. The student directory, organized by F. T. A. members, was distributed during the second semester.
The membership fee of $2.00 entitles a student to monthly copies of the National Education Association Journal and the Pennsylvania State Education Association Journal.

Page Literary Society continues to make contributions to the college life at Millersville. At the beginning of the year, the society made the newcomers to the campus feel at home by sponsoring a reception for freshmen. An autumn theme prevailed, with dancing, entertainment, and refreshments as the highlights of the evening. Throughout this year the society sponsored other activities, culminating in the Page anniversary in
May, at which time a prominent speaker was presented.
Under the leadership of Frank Coons, president. and Mabel Keemer, vice-president, the society has prospered. Minutes were recorded and correspondence handled by Eileen Elbin, and the finances managed by Anne Cochran. The curators were Robert Good and Glenn White.

Sooner or later the thrill of footlights attracts many M.S.T.C. students. Having successfully passed a "tryout” test before seasoned Citamar-dians, they are soon cast in a major production under the creative direction of Miss Rebekah Shacffer.
Citamard serves the community, as well as the campus, for it is host to nearby teachers and pupils on the annual High School Drama Nights, when one-act plays are presented by the high schools for criticism.
Let Us Be Gay, this year's big Citamard production, proved the club has great talent, organization, and direction.

Normal Literary Society
Near the beginning of the new school year, Nonna! Literary Society held a meeting of which the main purpose was reorganization of the society.
The year’s activities l egan with the Freshman Reception held in the Old Gym. Dancing to records, entertainment and refreshments were provided at this affair. To celebrate the 97th anniversary of the society, the noted columnist and
author, Frank Brookhouser, was brought to the campus as guest speaker. In January, a talent show was organized.
The advisors of the society are Mrs. Mae Breneman and Mr. William Duncan.ABOVE: Kneeling: Witzcl, Wallace, Samitz Standing Shilling, Krimmcl, Pastelak, Clay, Reid.
Much of the success of any play production at M.S.T.C. must be accredited to the Theatre Arts Club, which designs and makes the stage scenery for all major plays. It assumes responsibility for lighting, sound effects, care of stage property and many other minor tasks important in the production of a good play. Evidence of the craftsmanship of its members is the sets for the senior play, the
Rcichard, Bigler, Hearter.
Citamard play, and High School Drama Nights.
Since the club's founding in 1939, accent has been on service to the school. Expenses for scenery are kept at a minimum, for the work is done by the men who charge only for the necessary materials. The members, who are enrolled in the Industrial Arts curriculum, are in the club because they enjoy being a part of a dramatic production.Industrial Arts Society
To meet the need for professional organization among the Industrial Arts students, the Industrial Arts Society was organized in 1932. Since then the society has become an active and growing organization of nearly 250 members. Having as its purpose, higher standards in the Industrial Arts Department and greater efficiency of the men in their profession, the Industrial Arts Society does much to encourage profesional study, as well as
service to the college.
It brings to our campus distinguished lecturers and craftsmen, and provides interesting and educational movies, lectures, discussions, and demonstrations. Under its sponsorship, the Industrial Arts Department’s library has recently undergone extensive enlargement and reorganization. The service, program, and social committees are the main functional bodies of this organization.

The Wednesday evening meetings of the Student Christian Association offer inspiration, fellowship, and fun to all those who attend. The members participate in many activities such as Bible study, discussion groups, Christmas caroling, and social meetings. The program this year featured speakers representing alt the major religions.
The S. C. A. distributes Christmas gifts to the
children at the Mennonite home in Millersville, and sponsors other worthwhile activities such as selling candy, Christmas cards, and stationery irf the dormitory.
Whether they are singing around a bonfire, enjoying a book report or speaker, praying in the Easter sunrise service, or singing a favorite hymn, the S. C. A. supplies a real need in the lives of its members.

The meetings, held every two weeks, include worship and discussion of religious matters. This organization tries to create a more thorough understanding not only of Lutheran beliefs, but of other faiths as well. Also, each year delegates are sent to the Gettysburg Area Conference of the L.S.A., at Gettysburg College, and a report of proceedings is made to the local chapter.
The monthly meetings of the Library Science Club aim to develop ideals of librarianship in relation to the home, school, and community. These future librarians discuss their problems, recent news in this field, and the various phases of library work. Librarians from the surrounding area are frequent guests of the club and share their experiences.
In the fall, the club members acted as hostesses for the Sixth Annual High School Library Conference. Spring found the campus as the center for the Eighth Annual Eastern Pennsylvania School Library Conference, the Library Science Club again extending all possible courtesies to visitors, ocial activities include a reception for new nbers, the annual Christmas Party, and a picnic he spring.

79Phi Sigma Pi
This national honorary fraternity for men in teacher-training institutions has as its dual objectives fellowship and scholarship. New members, appointed by invitation only, must maintain an over-all scholastic average of 2.75, and exhibit the attributes of leadership and character.
Five new members were admitted this fall. Initiation includes writing a thesis on the philosophy of teaching in their major fields, as well as certain other customs evidenced by broad oak
paddles, tired feet and sleepy eyes.
This year the club observed Arbor Day by planting a tree on campus. In the spring a delegation was selected to attend the national convention in Washington, D.C.
The M.S.T.C chapter is extremely proud of the fact that Dean McComscy is national secretary-treasurer of Phi Sigma Pi. Dean McComsey also serves with Mr. John Shenk as co-advisor of the M.S.T.C. chapter.

Comprised of former Boy Scouts, this service fraternity most certainly lives up to its motto, "Leadership — Friendship — Service. Among its numerous contributions to M.S.T.C. each year arc the providing of ushers whenever needed and the placement of exhibits on the campus. It manages the used book store to help students keep that skyrocketing buget within bounds. At Christmas it places the big, lighted star on the tower of Old Main.
The officers for this year were George Purvis, president; Edmund Gress, vice-president; Richard Jones, treasurer; and Sereno Walbom, secretary.

Delta Phi Eta
Membership in Delta Phi Eta is a high achievement. The first requirement each girl must meet is scholarship—a 3.0 quality point average. She must also possess leadership—active participation in other organizations. Third, she must display service—to her classmates, her school, and her community. All these qualities lead us to the last requirement in which each girl has to excel— character.
The “red and white” girls are active in the dorm and on the campus. They sell doughnuts in the girls' dorm, work to make Homecoming a success, and pitch in with a willing hand whenever needed.ABOVE: Stchman, Pefflcy, Dcsch, Binkley, Shcaffcr, Graham.
Men's Day Student Association
This organization has its home in the basement of “The Old Gym,” and judging from the friendly chatter bursting from its walls, the M.D.S.A. is more popular than ever.
Each year the members help to improve the association. All the modern conveniences have been added—candy, coke, and cigarette machines for those lazy lads who just can't climb the steps. The strains of “O Happy Day” and "I'm Lone-
some" gently float from the radio. Further relaxation in this hang-out may include such strenuous physical and mental exercise as darts, checkers, chess, pinochle, and just plain loafing.
The improved atmosphere of the rooms contributes to the growing popularity which M.D.S.A. enjoys. There is even space provided for those unusual lads who occasionally feel the urge to study.

The Dr. John Roddy Scientific Society, named for one of the most revered science teachers of an earlier era, is an organization for students interested in the natural sciences. Each year the science department provides at least one program dealing with graduate schools and professional problems. Ideas for using their scientific training to gain added income during summer months were studied during the past year.
Doggie roasts, field trips, and campus projects, such as the identification and marking of all trees on campus, add life and good fellowship to the monthly meetings. In addition, films, slides, and trips to museums in the vicinity give valuable hints on methods of teaching and sources of material that will be useful to future teachers of science.
The only organization on campus named in honor of a living M.S.T.C. professor. Bassler Geographic Society was founded in Septeml er, 1947 to supplement the student’s knowledge of geography and to develop this appreciation of the subject.
Membership of this society consists of majors and minors, who hold monthly meetings in Room 11 of Wickersham Hall. Featured are guest speakers who have an unusual knowledge of some phase of geography and who lecture, lead discussions, and present visual aids.
This year's officers were Harry Jones, president; David Towers, vice-president; Dorothy Pinkerton, secretary; and George Purvis, treasurer, with Mr. Harry M. Bassler, head of the department, as advisor.

Bassler Geographic SocietyRat Race
Student Council runs the Rat Race, but it is the Lehrs—Mick and Floss—who make this ancient building seem like home. Keeping the lunch counter open much beyond the call of duty, they brighten the spirits of the bewildered freshman at his first Council dance, provide the patron of Council—sponsored movie thrillers with something to munch on, and revive the fainting barn dancer and the card shark. Many a Marauder claims the Rat Race as his second home. And such night hawks of the faculty as Miss Sheaffer, Mr. Jennings, and Dr. Berg pick up here the campus headlines over a ten-o’clock cup of coffee.
To the Lehrs, from all the classes and from Student Council, a hearty “Thank you.”

Another star was added to the seniors’ crown with their production of “Goodbye, My Fancy”, a three-act comedy by Kay Kanin, presented on November 21 and 22 in the College Chapel. Action centered around the return of a liberal Congress-woman, Agatha Reed (admirably played by Jean Graybill), to her old school for an honorary degree. Previously unrecognized talent was seen in the performances of George Doherty, as the New York war photographer (Matt Cole); Ann Goiab, as the dignified dean of women (Miss Shackle-
ford) ; and Janet Belser and Nancy Mengel, typical college girls (Ginny and Mary Nell). However, the whole cast gave a first-rate performance.
No tribute can express the credit due Miss Sheaflfer for her superb job as directress; the committees and the student directors for their unpublicized work; and the Theatre Arts Club for their cooperation in the stage work. As a result the play was a smash hit and the occasion a memorable one.
"Goodbye, My Fancy"
87M. C. A.
The dormitory men at Millersville have grouped themselves into an organization known as the Men’s Community Association. The men at M.S. T.C. have found that dormitory life is half one’s college life.
Besides the "bull sessions" in the rooms, the men find enjoyment in the canteen. Run by the students and located in the "dungon” (basement of the dorm), it is a retreat where the men watch television or play cards, chess, checkers, ping-pong. and darts. A refreshment counter dispenses soft drinks, ice cream, pretzels, and candy.
Meetings once a month are held in the canteen. Here any problems arising from the dormitory or school in general are aired.
laundry sales are also held throughout the year. Approximately once a month a smoker is held in the dining room, where a delicious dinner is served and entertainment is provided.
W. C. A.
President................Mary Jane Fetherman
Treasurer.........................Lila Lee Smith
Never let it be said there’s no fun at college. There’s work, and plenty of it. but the fun and adventure of living in the dormitory help to fill our four years of college with wonderful memories.
Remember the times we should have been studying. but instead we “gabbed” until the wee hours of the morning? Or the nights we sat in the hall after "lights out”? Those card games in the smoker, the 2:00 a. m. fire drills, the nights the phone kept ringing every five minutes, and the thrill of dressing for a dance—could we ever forget them?
During the year, W.C.A. sponsored numerous teas, including the Christmas Tea and the Senior Tea. At Christmas, the girls decorated a tree for the lobby entrance.
The girls’ dormitory is governed by two groups: Welfare and Equity. In addition, hall meetings and mass meetings arc held so that all residents can take a part in governing the dormitory.Interfraternity

The Interfraternity Council was formed for the purpose of promoting better co-operation among the fraternities on campus. Members of the council are the presidents and secretaries of the fraternities.
Acting merely as an advisory body for the fraternities, the council makes recommendations to them for co-operative action.
The major social event of the year is the Inter-Fraternity Ball.
This group is a member of a state-wide organization (composed of fifty-five colleges and universities ) desiring to gain firsthand experience in democratic processes.
This year I.C.G. sponsored Pennsylvania Week on campus, notably by conducting in assembly a debate on the issues of the coming election. Fourth-of-July oratory was totally eclipsed by the resounding phrases and blasting denunciations of Pat Haldeman, Phyllis Keeley, Russell Porter, and Jack Sheaffer, with Dr. Foster, advisor, as moderator.
The project of the April convention in Harrisburg was a model state legislature.

Xenophile, in case you are wondering, means a love of things foreign; consequently, this organization is the Foreign Language Club. The educational and entertaining meetings are open to all students and faculty on the campus. Outstanding programs include films, speakers, and songs in foreign languages.
The Rod and Gun Club provides fellowship for those interested in outdoor life. Member of the National Rifle Association of America, it provides instruction in the care and use of fire arms and schedules club shoots. Once a month the members gather and compete with each other. Twice a year shoots are open to the student body and prizes are awarded. ,

The English Club, one of the oldest organizations of M.S.T.C, has always numbered among its members the campus leaders. For many years it has brought well-known literary men to the campus and sponsored the showing of film versions of such classics as “Les Miserables” and “Pride and Prejudice". During the past year the members heard high fidelity recordings of the world's greatest poets, “Pleasure Dome" and the now famous “Don Juan in Hell’’ from Man and Superman.
This year, ten M.S.T.C. seniors were awarded recognition in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities.
A nominating committee, consisting of the college president, the dean of instruction, dean of women, dean of men, senior class deans, and secretaries of various campus organizations, chose the 1952-53 recipients of this honor.
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.

The ’52 gridiron season came to a close with a record of three wins and four losses yet in the eyes of the coachand student body the Marauders had a successful season. The team showed fine spirit and outstanding performance against some of the strongest small college opposition in the State.
Millersville opened with a bang to top East Stroudsburg 1-0. This was the first opening game M.S.T.C. won since 1948. Traveling to Lock Haven, however, Marauders fell prey to
the Bald Eagles 7-0.
The Santaniellomen returned to the home gridiron on Homecoming Day and romped over Kutztown 27-0. They followed through with another victory to squelch Cheyney 27-8. Ship-pensburg and West Chester, two undefeated teams, then moved in and trounced us 49-7 and 55-6, respectively.
In the finale, Mansfield held our boys to a heart breaking score 27-21, played on foreign soil.Wrestling

This season Grant “Tick” Hurst, former wrestling coach at McCasky High School, Lancaster, coached the matmen while former coach Ted Rupp was on leave of absence studying in France.
At the end of their regular season meets, the Marauders compiled a record of 5 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. Victories were against Lincoln, Upsala, West Chester, Indiana S.T.C., and East Stroudsburg. Defeats were at the hands of Wayneburg and Lock Haven, and a tie was with Camp Lc-jeume. North Carolina.
Glenn Flegal established a new school record when he scored 5 pins in 8 tries in one season and
remained unl eaten this season. Seniors Jerry Shervanick and "Skeetcr” Kemp came through undefeated; however, Kemp was lost to the team by an injury in midseason. Another senior, George Doherty, assistant coach, lost one match, but is considered, along with Shervanick, as one of the finest wrestlers to wear the black and gold of Millersville.
Flegal, Doherty, and Shervanick entered the nationals this year at Penn State.
The Junior Varsity compiled a record of 3 victories and 4 defeats.WRESTLING SCHEDULE 1952-1953 Season

The 1952-53 edition of basketball at M.S.T.C. ended its regular season with an overall record of 11 wins against 10 defeats. Victories were recorded over East Stroudsburg twice, Shippens-burg, Lincoln, Lock Haven twice, Kutztown twice, Elizabethtown, Bloomsburg, and Mansfield. Losses were to St. Joseph, LaSalle, Villanova, Blooms-burg, West Chester twice, Elizabethtown, Waynes-burg, California, and Shippensburg. Winning the play-off with Bloomsburg, the team again this
year played in the finals with Geneva College at Juniata College, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania but were defeated.
Tribute must be paid to the co-captains, Kline and Stoner, who both played excellent ball. They were high scorers and fine ball handlers. We cannot overlook the fine showing of freshman La-batch. Ortlip, Fitzgibbons, and Weining. They will definitely l e an asset for Bishop’s future teams.I. V. Basketball
This year the J.V. team was composed of all freshmen and coached by Paul McCool and “Skip” Marcello. Their record was 7 wins and 7 defeats. There is no doubt that several of these boys will be varsity material next year.

Reviewing the 1952 season, we find the Marauders had a record of 5 wins against 4 defeats— in teachers college competition a 5-1 record.
The highlight of the season was a 3-2 victory over strong Bloomsburg, which can be attributed to the fine tossing of Norm Young, a freshman. Ex-seniors that are missed are Bill Wilson, with a batting average of .514; Walt Kreider, who had a splendid pitching record, and A1 Belczyk, who played errorless ball.
Ken Stoner, a senior, is the mainstay of this year's edition, with his fine hitting and excellent fielding at shortstop. Lowell Henry, another senior, is a capable fielder. Here’s wishing Coach Bishop and his men a successful season.

“A sport for every woman and every woman in a sport”, slogan of the W.A.A., expresses the ideals of the group.
Intramural competition is governed by a council of interested volunteers. The council assumes the responsibility of securing girls to serve as officials.
Basketball, volleyball, table tennis, swimming, foul shooting, archery and softball represented the collegiate sports in intramural competition this year. The fine participation in these tournaments demonstrated the enthusiasm of the girls not competing in varsity contests.
This year the team captained by Betty Weik won the basketball tourney, with other teams close on their heels.ABOVE—(left to right): Momma. Smith. Scacrist. Carol Wiizcl. Deulingcr. Evans, Parker.

The spirit characteristic of the girls’ athletic teams was again exemplified this season as the basketball team broke a losing streak and came through with several victories.
Evidence of the improvement of the team was the greater number of s]x?ctators attracted by the two home games.
Although some of the letter played games were lost, those played with Lebanon Valley will not easily l e forgotten. The “lady marauders” defeated their rivals 27-26 and 33-29 in two well-played games.
With the loss of only two seniors. Dr. Mary Llizatath Dixon and the team can look forward to another successful season next year.cates a steady improvement and cause for rival teams to “watch our (s) team” next season when the gals return to the field with the loss of only four varsity players.
Under the capable coaching of Dr. Mary Elizabeth Dixon, future hockey teams can look forward to worthwhile practices and successful seasons.

This year the “Lady Marauders” faced such traditional rivals as Lock Haven, Gettysburg, Shippensburg, Lebanon Valley and Albright, and added Elizabethtown to their schedule. The end of the season showed a record of two losses, two ties, and two wins, in that order; all of which indi- THE CONESTOGA
