7444 134 W M. It is a looking-glass for you, a grown-up Alice, 0 student at
Milwaukee-Downer College. You are the Senior looking backward on her college
career and realizing poignantly that Downer is to be rememberede-always. Or
you are the Junior beginning to understand more completely the subtle continuity
of tradition, the Sophomore still glowing with the warmth of association climaxed
during Hat Hunt. Perhaps you are the Freshman who, having spent a year at
Downer, already feels the far-reaching effects of new experience.
71:44 M W W. You are the heroine. We have tried to show not only how the
college has fashioned your way of life, but how you have actively influenced the
college. For one of the finest benefits of the small liberal arts college is the con-
tinual interest in the individual personality along with insight into her intellectual
needs. You are here, carolling with the Lantern Night singers or dancing at the
Junior Prom. As you turn the pages you will find yourself rowing in the shells on
the river or planning the All-college Mixer.
744 $4 yam Acme. We hope you will cherish it as the symbol of a never-to-be-for-
gotten year in your life. Because you know that Downer embodies a spirit that
can never really be expressed in words or photographs, you will enrich this year-
book by the addition of your understanding. This is your book because you have

This spring the " '49ers" took trowels in hand and explored the campus in their search for
the hot as eagerly as any prospector ever hunted for nuggets. Their enthusiasm was foreshadowed
.at Cabaret when everyone, Sophs included, learned how much they were looking forward to one
of our oldest traditions.
After Freshmen Week, their big sisters were willing to tell the school that the class of '49 would
deserve its royal purple jackets for spirit alone, the kind of spirit that inspired them to gather and
compose their class song right after First Hat Banquet. Now, at the close of their first college year
they've proved themselves a class of leaders unified in all their activities. And Downer is proud

The yellow class of '48. They seem to have the true Midas touch, since everything, except the
silver cups they've won, has turned to gold at their command. They took Regatta in a winning
stride, reached the top in swimming honors, and have sent their guards and forwards into many
a winning game.
But their versatility does not end with skill in sportse-our Sophs succeed in giving the impres-
sion of sophisticated upperclassmen, meanwhile reserving the lifted eyebrow and cold glance for
the bewildered Freshman. Since the Sophs may regret this phrase after "post Hat Hunt fraterniza-
tion" begins, we hasten to say that they really have "hearts of gold".
We haven't mentioned smoothness, but it's a part of our toast, and it can't be denied that
their own sparkling brand of attractiveness stayed with them even while they were plagued with
seven pigtails apiece.

And the ioys we share And the spirit here
Inspire us anew! Are memories to hold.

Beginning the year with the annual membership drive, the A.A. Board launched a itDouble
A Shoe Campaign". Signs saying "Don't be a misfit, buy an A.A. shoe" surrounded the board
members as they sold small paper loafers to the girls as tokens of membership. An interesting
collection of shoes used in specialized sports greeted students as they entered Merrill during that
week. The result of this effort was one of the largest A.A. Clubs in years.
At Hallowe'en time, A.A. took over Merrill again for a party complete with a treasure hunt,
fortune telling, bobbing for apples, games, and a hair-raising "spook-house" in the attic. Sec-
ond semester activities included a bowling party at the 'iY" in March, the annual Swimming Meet,
an ail-college Splash-party, a picnic, and, of course, Regatta.
Seasonal sports kept Downeris athletic activities going at top speed the year 'round, giving
to each participant the practice in teamwork and good sportsmanship which is one of the principle
gains received from college life.
Janet Bee was A.A.,s alert and capable president. Sammy Rubenowich served as vice-presi-
dent, Donna Peterson was secretary, and Betty Fass treasurer of the group.

Jim 'n Biking.
Each spring and fall these sports attract many Downerites. Hikers leave the campus almost
any hour in the afternoon and may be seen swinging along toward any of the scenic spots near
the college. Lake Drive, Estabrook Park, Atwater Beach, and Lake Park are points of interest.
Chief ttroute-planner" and chairmah is Merle Epstein.
Although biking is the "youngest" sport at Downer it is not lacking in ardent followers. The
exhilaration of rides through Doctor's Park and far into the country suppresses the unpleasant mem-
ories of flat tires and steep hills. tBut, incidentally, repair kits have now become a standard
part of equipmentJ Doris Campbell, Catherine Corlisle, Martha Rankin, and Martha Russell are
the members of the biking committee.

After Nan Carrier, the cox
of last year's winning team
had received the traditional
dunking, the symbolic small
wooden car was presented
to the Seniors as a token of
their victory. Girls who
took their places on the
AlI-College Crew were
Janet Scudder, Sue Pasteur,
Margery Hunt, Phyllis
Hoppe, Ellen Zieper, Janet
Bee, Pat Vogel, Lois Gossert,
and Non Carrier, coxswain.
This year's swimming classes were
held at the HY", as in former years.
There were instructions in life sav-
ing, beginning, and intermediate
swimming. Advanced swimmers con-
centrated on perfecting water bal-
let forms for the swimming meet
held in March. This is a yearly
event of all-college interest. The
unusual theme of the 1946 meet
was Parade of the States. Manager
of this sport is "Toni" Housman.
Joy farm was the gathering place
for our enthusiastic riding group.
Once a week Downerites wound
their way along dirt trails, across
fields, and through streams on their
horses. At the end of the season a
competitive Horse Show was held
and the best riders were chosen to
make up the college and class
teams. A plaque was awarded to
Sue Ehrman whose skill had placed
her first. Other members of the
college team were Suzanne Sims,
Mariory McKillip, and Beryl Webbi
SUZANNE EHRMAN AND PARTNER
Every season at Downer is a lively one for sports. Girls who have never taken instructions
in archery, bowling, or riding have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of these and other
sports and make them a permanent hobby. Modern dance, folk dancing, and ballroom dancing
have become part of the schedules of many Downerites. Here are other favorites:
AUTUMN . . . means hockey. Players in the fall of '45 had a long schedule which they fulfilled
with both honest effort and fun. Downer played its arch-rival, La Crosse, and was beaten by
one goal. However, we retaliated to win over Lo Crosse's second team. The Sophs were unde-
feated champions of the inter-class tournament, while the Freshmen were runners-up with only
one defeat. In the all-stor Blue and White game, the Whites captained by Janet Bee were vic-
torious over the Blues, led by Mary Ann Pfeifer.
WINTER . . . brought basketball to the fore. Some of the more enthusiastic players formed teams
which competed with the Seminary girls on two Saturday mornings. Basketball skills were dis-
played in the inter-class tournament as each team eagerly strove to become the victor. The All-
star game, which brought many spectators to the gym balcony, ended a very successful season.
Ann Melcher managed the sport.
Bowling is another prominent sport during the winter months. This activity is considered by
some as a good substitute for Ry-Krisp because of the presenf "student pin-girl" system. At any
rate, this sport is a popular one as its long registration list will testify. Betty Panella is in charge
of bowling this year.
SPRING . . . sees a large number of archery fans headed directly for back campus with their bows
and arrows. The five future competitors of Dan Cupid who made the college team this fall are
Delores Froemming, Barbara George, Helen Harvey, Joan Kroening, and Phyllis Young. In the
lnter-class tournament the Seniors won first place in a very close competition; the Sophomores
were right in there with two points less. For those who did not compete in the tournament novelty
shooting was offered.

An example of our democratic living at Downer is found in our government which is "of the
students, by the students, and for the students". C.G.A. is a law-making and a law-enforcing
body. The governing officers are chose by the students and they preside at all the meetings of
the college group. Sara Sue Son is president for '45-'46; Ellen Zieper, vice-president; Pat Murphy,
secretary; and Geraldine Skinner, treasurer. '
Every student has the privilege of stating her views
in all group discussions, and, of course, we make use of
this opportunity quite frequently. Dress regulations are
defined, and all the "mores" of the college stressed.
This year marked the opening of the new HStu parlor
smoker". Extremely important issues are often consid-
ered by a combination of faculty members and stu-
With these privileges and freedoms we also have
some responsibilities which we accept knowing that it is
these which really entitle us to our self-government.
Through the dues which we pay to C.G.A. we see an-
other form of democracy working. Our money goes to
finance school and class activities. All of us who have
a keen interest in the changes and happenings in col-
lege life are active in observing and participating in
this sphere of living. Thus we are molding intelligently

Disraeli once said, 'iEvery production of genius must be the production of enthusiasm." He
wasn't referring specifically to the field of dramatics, but the Mountebanks have found it to be
a most necessary quality for success. Enthusiasm marked the beginning of the dramatic season
this year through the initiation of i'try-outs" for membership. As a result of the try-outs, the
Apprentice Players were organized and presented a "variety show" which not only dispiayed
their talents but proved a very satisfactory achievement for the year's first production.
The first important play on the club's schedule was given at the Shorewood Auditorium on the
first of December. When rehearsals began and production got underway the girls discovered there
is more to the stage than grease paint. They learned to hammer and saw, to build and de-
sign scenery. Some discovered the real meaning of the word "production", but after the effort
was finished and the show had successfully played to a full house, they breathed a sigh of honest
The Mountebanks were fortunate in having Miss Dolly Tharnstrom as their director, for it was
under her guidance that the members were stimulated to venture into new and interesting fields

of drama. Theatre excursions to view professionals, classes in make-up, posture, and costuming,
and one-act plays offered other fields for exploration. Miss Reber's work with the verse speak-
ing choir attracted both new and old participants in this novel form of interpretation.
During the rush preceding Christmas vacation, the club relaxed for an evening to enioy their
formal Christmas party and the reading of "The Other Wise Man" given by Miss Tharnstrom. To
make the gathering on even more memorable one, experiments in lighting and shadow plays
were blended with yuletide songs by Ellen Weiss.
Successful spring proiects included the ambitious productions of 'THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING
EARNEST't and 'iTWELFTH NIGHT".
It is almost impossible to state the limitations of a dramatic society, for there really are very
few. Drama is of all things. We have found that "all the world's a stage"; therefore, being an
actor requires the same spirit and zest which we must show for life itself.

O.T. means occupational therapy? Yes, thatls true; but any student of this profession at Mil-
waukee-Downer will probably tell you it means llovertime" as well. One of the activities these
busy girls sponsor in their extra moments is the O.T. club through which a unified spirit is created
between themselves and their consideration of professional fields which lie outside of college.
The monthly meetings were planned with this dominant interest in mind. For one of the first
programs the members were fortunate in having several alumnae from the class of l45 return
to give them an insight on iust what is in store for the O.T. during clinical training. At another
meeting the girls heard a speaker from the Good Will Industries outline its ambitioue program.
The girls will long remember the program presented by Mr. Lloyd Shafer, a Boy Scout executive,
who came from Fond du Lac to give a demonstration and lecture on the extremely interesting
art of Tin Craft. Another speaker who added to their enthusiasm for the field was Pvt. Dick Mossey

"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not movid with concord of sweet sounds, is
fit for treasons, strategems, and spoils."
This well-known quotation of Shakespeare might well have been the inspiration for our music
club. Members have shown during this past year that they have a true love for music, whether it
be manifested through instruments and vocal performances or simply by listening to worthwhile
recordings. To promote a greater interest in city music events, the Aeolian club acquaints its
members, by means of records and student offerings, with operas and concerts before they are
presented in Milwaukee.
The scope of this group is not limited to its own circle, for one of its primary aims is to instill
an interest in music in each student of the college. Members sponsor ticket sales for local musical
events and promote student and faculty performances in the chapel. The Christmas program by
the ensemble and glee club, the spring concert, and the musicales given at noon in chapel supply
a needed diversion from daily studies. With this wide range of activity in mind, one can readily
see why Aeolians are kept busy!
They were guided this year by Doris Meyer, president; Merle Epstein, vice-president; and Betty

Better than simply imagining a South American Christmas is actually having one! Spanish club
members were thrilled with their unusual adventures with this favorite holiday. The high point
of the festival was the Hpinata". iAs everyone knows, excepting those who do not study Spanish,

Another memorable event was the visit of Senora Guerra of Santiago, Chile. Downer Seno-
ritas did their very best to pour coffee and carry on a subiunctive-less conversation that evening
in Greene Lounge. Miss Guerra yielded charmingly to questions about South American people,
schools, music, and customs.
Our Spanish group has initiated plans for a joint meeting with other local student groups in-
terested in lbero-America. As we go to press, April has been set as the time for a lecture by a
representative of the Spanish-speaking countries. The success of this venture would heighten all-
college interest in the basic problems underlying Hispano-American relationships.

Christmas play. Three scenes from "Ein Neues Weihnachtsspiel aus Alter Zeit" were presented at
the annual HWeichnachtsfeier", after which guests were invited to partake in the 'Kaffeestunde".
A masquerade party at which members appeared representing characters from German liter-
ature was followed by a supper in Faculty Parlor. Other activities of the spring term included the
celebration of Shrove Tuesday or nFastnacht", in March, and folk-costumes party. The customary
picnic at Doctor's Park brought this season of exceptionally interesting programs to a close.

Milwaukee-Downer's French Club necessarily restricts its membership to those who 'tparlez-
vous", and it is, therefore, one of the smaller clubs on the campus. An excellent opportunity
is afforded those who wish to learn conversational French and practice French customs.
Greene Lounge was the scene of the monthly meetings of Downerts Cercle which has been
very active throughout this year. Mlle. Amelie Serafon, former faculty adviser, attended the No-
vember meeting and was most happy to accept the group's donation to the French Relief to buy
milk for French children.
Fortunate French children awake on Christmas morning to find not stockings hung on a fire-
place, but candy-filled wooden shoes under the mantle. "Mademoiselles" here observed the
traditional manner of celebrating Christmas and found that the shoes prove a satisfactory sub-
stitute. The evening of the Christmas soiree the group gathered around the fireplace while
Miss Dart read Daudet's Les Trois Messes Basses.
Club members munched crepe suzettes at the traditional Mardi Gras on March 5. On other
occasions they played bridge, read one-act plays, and learned French songs.

Miss Dart, honorary member, acted as faculty adviser.

The friendly living room of Sabin Hall, often enhanced by a glowing fireplace, lured new
and old members to the monthly meetings of HHome Ec Club".
The club was organized in 1925 with the membership open to all students maioring in Home
Economics. Programs and proiects are designed to instill enthusiasm and professional pride in
the many phases of the field. For example, Miss Edna Anderson and Mrs. Breta Griem told the
girls of opportunities in textiles and business for the Home Economist.
A social event circled on calendars of music majors and Home Ec maiors alike was the Christmas
party they shared. Special decorations and refreshments plus appropriate yuletide music made
the evening a successful one.
The tea shop at the Dragon's Breath Carnival is traditionally sponsored by this club. The
"candy 'n spice 'n everything nice" could be traced directly to the careful planning of the Insti-
tutional Management class.
Program chairman for the year was Patricia Murphy. Doris and Marie Neuswirth were social
chairmen. Miss West was faculty adviser for the club. Betty Jay served as president and June
Dolge as secretary-treasurer.

Our Colors Day Procession was damp but undaunted as it made its way around the horseshoe
and into chapel. Untimely showers made this the first indoors Colors Day since the recently grad-
uated purple class received its banner four years ago. Marna Becker presented the enthusiastic
,49ers with their color and the new wearers of the purple promptly gave us another Spirited class
song for our repertoire.
Arranged by the Co-chairman Joanne Hamburg and Marilyn Davidson, our Mixer was en-
hanced by the hues of brilliantly scattered leaves, two orchestras, and fewer uniforms. This event
fittingly preceded a full social season guided by the social committee.
A truly dignified occas-
ion was Milwaukee-Down-

lantern Night Carolers are symbolic of the Christmas spirit that seems to carry itself through
the singing halls into the heart of every Downer girl. Our first peacetime Christmas in years
was given the glory of a new tradition, the all-college Christmas party, and an old tradition, that
The custom of singing the lovely old songs of the season to those who live in the various in-
stitutions of the vicinity attracted scores of girls. Grateful for the few wistful flakes of snow
and the frosty evening, we left Merrill Hall early in the evening. Connie Keyes led our singing
while Edythe Klug arranged our visits and supervised the service of that unparalled hot chocolate
and those quick-vanishing cookies. Lanterns, courtesy of Studio Club, of course.
Everyone is hopeful that our all-college Christmas gathering, will, like our caroling, become
an annual affair. The evening was gaily ushered in by Christmas banquets for dormitory and
city students alike. In chapel we listened to an interesting talk on art that has been inspired by
the Nativity. It was illustrated by many excellent slides. Then groups of formally-gowned faculty
members and students wandered into pine-scented Holton Hall Parlor to partake of the steaming
wassail there. As the evening ended many paused before the time-mellowed fireplace and felt
they knew some of the true charm of the Christmas season.

t'DANCING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND"
Miraculously, it snowed that night and we stepped from one winter scene to another when
we entered the Crystal Ballroom to attend the Wintergreen Prom. Members of the committee forgot
their afternoon session in blue jeans as they, too, viewed with appreciation the masses of greens
that lined the room. We swirled the bouffant skirts we had so carefully unpacked after Christmas
vacation and prepared for a carefree evening.
Beryl of the Titian hair and green ballet shoes donned royal white and silver and was officially

Kodak is teaching her to pay the bills. Phyllis Weikart . . . All Holton swooned when Capt. Wei-
kart came to see his little sister; our potential Phi Bete looked dreamy at Prom, her room's an ad-
vertisement for Bates. Louise. Wesle . . . Note the change from Weezy to Leslie, it's most confus-
ing; Ginger bids 0 no-trump and Les will make it for her every time. Oh, by the way, she's our
new CSO pres! Marjorie Wiles . . . Medical students prefer blonds, so Mariie had some pro-
fessional help with that course in Physiology. A perfect hostess and a thoughtful guest. Janet
Wilson . . . Those 15 months in the ETC . . . ugh! Can quote on and on from CBS, Dear Ruth,
Morning in Iowa, and anything else you might suggest; owns a red coat and hat that must have
been designed by Schiaparelli.
Mabel Wong . . . Oberlin once laid claim to her, possesses a dry and intriguing sense of humor,
and whisks herself up to the Art book store at any imaginable moment. Bernadette Young . . .
Bernie's memories of Waikiki are somewhat obscured by our violent snow storms, but the inter-
ior decorations of her room serve to remind her and fascinate everyone else. Phyllis Young .
Our recommendation for one of the most enthusiastic of Downer's O.T.s, one of the few who
smiled at Anat. The little green book went to press and Downer was impressed! Elaine Zarne
. . . TMy, what big eyes you hovel", a very fortunate asset in the speech field. Elaine would
like to go to New Yorke-soon!

Shout for the green of Downer Green is the class we sing to,
For 47's green! For strength and courage high.
We'll make our class a record, Green is the flag we cling to,
The best you've ever seen. Our banner 'gainst the sky.
We'll fight for green and Downer, We'll stick to our class color;
True to our class wetll be. Wherever we may be,
Forever wetll hold close to our hearts, We'll shout that were the emerald class,
The green of M. D. C. The green of M. D. C.

As Shirley Ann Vogt and Margaret Creighton Edmondson left the chapel on April 8 they
received the hearty congratulations of their friends. The Delta Chapter of Wisconsin of Phi
Beta Kappa told the results of its sixth annual election, and these two seniors had been chosen
members-in-course. Assistant Professor Louise Saxe Eby, chapter president, mode the announce-
Shirley maiored in languages and Margaret in art. In addition to maintaining high scholastic
averages, both girls participated in many extra-curricular activities during their four years at
Downer. Shirley assumed the editorship of Kodak in her iunior year, has participated in the
activities of French Club and International Relations Club, and has held the presidency of Spanish
Club. Margaret is the president of Studio Club and has taken part in activities of Mountebanks,
German Club, and the Athletic Association.
Miss Margaret Kaser of the class of 1933 was the alumna elected to membership. After grad-
uation from Milwaukee-Downer College, she received her M.$. at the University of Wisconsin in
1934. She received her Ph.D. at the University of Colorado. Since that time she has divided her
time between teaching and research, publishing numerous articles in the field of Bio-chemistry .

Our skies were bluer than your walls were red
Against them in the sun. Through mist and snow
Or block against a sky of night or lead,
Solid, secure, and ours. Now we go.
With patience almost infinite you drew
Reluctant minds, confused, unwilling though
We were, to crystal channels where we knew
The deep, sure certainty of fact. And now we go.
Our hearts were lighter for the words you said
Of faith and courage as the day drew near
When doubt, of wonder born and reason bred
Would challenge all you taught us to revere.
Thank God for faith in this dark day to know
Your strength behind us ever. Now we go.

FOR YEARS TO COME
Satisfaction for years to come is assured by plumbing fixtures and fittings
that bear the name "Kohler". They have the timeless beauty of clean-cut
lines and good proportions. Utmost practicality is assured by easy-to-clean,
lustrous surfaces, smooth and hard as polished glass, and by durable pre-
cision-made working parts. Kohler quality, at no extra cost, is important
to you when you build, buy, or remodel.
Among the types and sizes of Kohler fixtures for bathroom, kitchen, wash-
room, or laundry, you will find matched sets or individual pieces that are
right for your needs. Your master plumber will gladly help you with use-
The 73-year-old tradition of Kohler quality is safeguarded by the fact
that production is concentrated at one great plant, where coordination is
achieved through unity of supervision. Kohler Co., Kohler, Wis.

young, with a population of about 20,000ethe
Farmers' and Millers' Bonk opened for business in a
small one-room office at 204 East Water Street.
From that beginning has grown the First Wisconsin
National Bank of today - largest bank in the state
and one of the oldest e-with 13 convenient offices
at your service throughout the city. And today, as
