V 4e GIgM ________ 1956 Pn b atl STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Milleteuille, Pennsylvaniatf-OA WOSui It is our purpose in this hook to present life at Millersville State Teachers College as it really is. We have done this in several ways. First, we have tried to keep the hook quite informal. We have trie ! to achieve this by cutting down on the editorial side ami building up the photography. Vi c hold that to present the picture of our life on campus it is necessary to use more and more photographs. Second, we have eliminated a theme in the true sense of the word and just let the hook explain itself. Third, we have added a feature section at the end of the hook which shows us the facilities at our disposal in the form of our new residence halls and auditorium. It is our hope that everyone in looking at this hook achieves the sense of satisfaction that we of the staff have in presenting it to you.

ARTHUR E. GERHART Dr. Arthur IT. Gerhart resigned from the faculty of this college on June 1, 1955, after serving 27 years as a teacher of botany and biology and as head of the Natural Science Department. It i to him, in recognition of his guidance, his friendship and his service to the college, that this issue of the TOUCHSTONE is dedicated. A native of Bedford, Pennsylvania, he is a graduate of Bucknell Academy, holds u Bachelor of Science degree from Pennsylvania State College, a Master of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Chicago. Although descended from several generations of ministers, he chose teaching as his profession. He held several positions in high schools and college before settling at Millersville soon after the college was converted from a state normal school. Dr. Gerhart witnessed and took part in many changes in the college, both in curriculum and physical equipment. He became the first head of the Department of Natural Sciences after the sciences were departmentalized and served in that capacity for the final decade of his association with Millersville. Dr. Gerhart’s first interest was always in science and there was something about this interest that was contagious. Students found him to be widely read and well informed in many areas, and consequently enjoyed his lectures and conversations immensely. His extensive knowledge was mixed with a high degree of understanding and patience, and his very sense of humor made any hour in his classes pleasant as well as informative. As a teacher, » • he may well serve as a model to any Millersville student regardless of the student’s fields of interest. A man of depth and breadth in knowledge and understanding, a master of the use of language, a wise and kindly advisor, a man of rare good humor, Dr. Gerhart will never be forgotten by his students and associates. His presence is missed by those who were here during his stay, ami it is felt that those students yet to come will be deprived of a unique and enlightening experience in not being able to attend his classes. 7ElementsADVANCING (fleateA.

Four short years ago we entered M.S.T.C. under the shouts of the famous “What do you say?”, “Who do you love?”, and “Buttons!” How we hated those first two weeks and what fond memories we have of them now’! Our first year had just begun under the kind guidance of our advisors. Miss Beatrice Dalesman and Mr. Steve Namit. Much work together with much fun produced our first big project of campus life; we held the “Spring Festival” in Brooks Hall with the “Hall of Horrors” and “Dutch Sock Hop.” Our sophomore year brought the “'53 Hangover” held in the Rat Race. By this time we had had our chance at hazing the Frosh and we knew our way through the ins and outs of matriculation. This was also the year that Lyle and Roddy Halls opened 22 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS Seated, left to right: Geraldine Bcrkhcimer, Historian; Elaine Lelio, Treasurer; Barry Stein. President; Clark Taylor. Student Council rep rc.sent.uive; and Dolores Boyer, Secretary. their doors to us. What luxury after having lived in Old Main! And then we were juniors! The girls had the opportunity to be big sisters to the freshmen and help make them feel at home. Highlighting the year was our prom “Silver Bells" at the Hotel Brunswick. Also among our special events were an informal dance in Rat Race and a float for the centennial parade. And now our last year at M.S.T.C. has come to an end and with it some of our problems and hard work. Only the good and enjoyable remain in our hearts and memories; the Homecoming display which won us top honors, “Sabrina Fair”, the ball and dinner-dance at the Overlook Country Club, student teaching, and many others. And then the biggest day of all—graduation.4.Q4U 1 class adlaiio i Miss Datesman, an active member of the college faculty, is also a very busy woman in work outside of the college itself. Her home town of Columbia will vouch for that. After graduating from Hood College in 1931, she attended Syracuse University and MilIcrsvillc State Teachers College, and from here to Franklin and Marshall College in nearby Lancaster. Coming to Millersvillc as an instructor in the field of Library Science and also serving as assistant librarian. Miss Datesman in the fall of 1952 assumed the responsibility of being advisor to our class. For her very kind and generous assistance in all matters, the seniors express their deep gratitude. Steve A. Nam it, M.Ed. Serving in the capacity of advisor to the Class of 1956 is Mr. Steve A. Namit, associate professor of health and physical education, supervisor of junior high school health and mathematics. Besides being a teacher himself he also serves as a supervisor to seniors who may be doing their practice teaching in the junior high school. His role there kept him many times from being present at our class meetings themselves but he never failed to show his interest in our activities by being present at all our functions. It is for this that we, the Class of 1956, wish to express our thanks. 23A. JOHN ABRAMS Industrial Arts Havertoun “Sketch” . . . talented art editor of TOUCHSTONE and OPUS . . .

IN MEMORIAM We. the Class of 1956. are proud to dedicate this page in memoriam to a member of our class. Myron Allen Baxter. We deeply regret that we can dedicate it to his memory only. “John," as he was known by his classmates, entered Millersville with us in the fall of 1952. He was enrolled in the secondary curriculum and became an active member of our class, his main interest being in wrestling. In the fall of our junior year John entered the United States Army. Following his basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, he was assigned to an antiaircraft company at Fort Bliss. Texas. While serving in this capacity John was the victim of a most unfortunate accident. A group of workmen were dismantling a rocket when the acetylene torch they were using accidentally set off an explosion which killed John and two other men. He will live in our memory as a classmate who was interested in school, in life, and in achievement.

The girls of the class had corresponded with their “little sisters" and were ready to meet them and make the freshmen girls feel at home. A “Big-Little Sister" picnic, which was held in the Bat Race, served as a get-acquainted party. For Homecoming, the juniors made a unique display of lollipops and a laughing clown. Highlighting the year was the Junior Prom, the “Harvest Ball,” held in Brooks Hall on November 12. It was at this event that the TOUCHSTONE QUEEN, Michaelinc Santan-iello, was crowned. This and other activities were enjoyed by all and were under the capable direction of Gerry Zeager. To guide and direct the class as advisors were Miss Lula Dreshcr and Mr. Paul Eshelman.

Remembering their freshman days, they became willing and ardent supporters of the activities designed to have the class of ’59 initiated into college life. To guide and direct the class, Miss Louise Valter and Mr. Anthony Champa were appointed as advisors. Under the leadership of Curt Donat, as president, the class had an eventful year. At Homecoming the class gained recognition by Elaine Smith, one of its members, being chosen as Varsity Queen. The first social event sponsored by the class was a movie in the old gym. Other social events were held but highlighting their year was the Sophomore Prom on March 10.

In September the class of 1959 came to Millersvillc as the largest group of freshmen ever to graze our campus. To get them in the swing of college life, Student Council induced them to participate in a month of the traditional Millersville initiation rituals. After the first win of our 1955 football team, dinks and buttons were cast aside as one of the first of many souvenirs of college life. With Mr. Louis Jennings and Miss Mabel Moberg as advisors, the class organized and nominations for officers were held. The class was headed this year under the leadership of Fred Gould. Social events of the year include movies and informal dances in the old gym. Highlighting the activities was the Freshman From held April 14 in Brooks Hall.

Increased enrollment produced quite a problem. Realizing this,CounciI sponsored a week of freshmen activities. This included parties, dances, and movies, plus the traditional sale of dinks and tarns. Throughout the year bi-monthly meetings arc held and constructive and entertaining activities for the benefit of the entire student body are planned. Highlighting the year was the annual Sweetheart Dance held in February. This dance is free of charge to all students. Under very capable leadership and kind assistance from the two advisors. Mrs. Hill and Dr. Stine, Council was able to accomplish quite a bit this year and also helped to pave the way for the members of future years. Barry Miller President 70A shot of the annual Sweetheart Dance held by the Student Council every year free of charge for all Millersville students. This year the fabulous Teddy Rich orchestra provided the music for the dancing couples. Ruthic Foster reaches for a napkin as the other students watch.

Second row: Phyllis Hol .mueller, Underclassman Editor; John Abrams, Art Editor; and Hetty Taylor. Club Editor. This year's staff had quite a task ahead of them. They decided that they wanted to produce a hook that would contain more pictures than previous hooks had contained. They realized that this would involve more work for themselves, hut they were willing to undertake the task and to do a good job. The idea behind the book this year would be to show a true picture of life at Millcrsville at the start of its second century. Peggy Newman and Kugene Jones, both seniors, were in charge of this hook as editor and business manager respectively. Mr. John Shenk and I)r. Mary Brightbill acted as advisors. Betty Taylor, Club Editor, asks other girls on her part of the staff if they can identify some pictures.

In January of this year the first issue of the COLLEGIAN appeared on our campus and was quite favorably received.

This year was a busy one for the Women’s Community Association. In the beginning of the school year arrangements had to be made to accommodate freshman girls in Old Main. Because the enrollment was so large the entire old dormitory had to be used for the girls. During the year W. C. A. purchased a new sewing machine for the girls of Lyle Hall to use and the older one was reconditioned for the girls in Old Main. In the spring we had our formal Dinner-Dance with the dinner being held in the dining hall and the dance in Brooks Hall. This was one of the highlights of the year with the others being the annual Christmas party and the party at the end of the year in honor of the seniors.

Hopes were high for a successful season since several of the boys had been on the team in previous years. 122CHEERLEADERS Everyone realizes that cheerleaders are an essential part of any athletic team. This is so at Millersvillc. These girls, both Junior Varsity and Varsity, keep the action moving at all the athletic events.
