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 written it. A familiar scene in Lake Park enhanced by the first snowfall. e. g e 1 I O C I u O 11 O t I a e h L n I m IT. 0 S ..H.. a W d e I e V O c Y .N e h T Albert and McLaren Halls seen from Hawthornden. e. g .m 1 0 IT. 0.. .n n p S Y b d e m a ,H T. e W O T H a m p a h C W! y, z , ,6?

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 I they've proved themselves a class of leaders unified in all their activities. And Downer is proud of them.

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.

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. 32 Reprint From The Mltwaukee Journal NEWS OF THE AA CAMPAIGN WAS ON EVERYONE'S 'tTONGUE" 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. 33 Rayal'lla The trek to the river is on event in itself, for the cli- max of all athletic events at Milwaukee-Downer College is the annual Regatta held each spring. Two ingenious spectators see the eight-oared shells glide through the water from a vantage point. Each class proudly wears its class color as it rallies to its cox- swain's lusty cry of HStro eke!" 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. 34 Swimming 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. CHRISTIANA PETERS KW? ' 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 35 5710423 5W9; 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: ii? 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. 73L? 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. i? 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. 36 edleye QWW 14W Seated: Janet Bee, Ellen Zieper, Patricia Murphy, Sara Sue Son, Geraldine Skinner, Shirley Williams.

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- dents. 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 SARA SUE SON, President of CGA our lives of tomorrow. 37 Sealed: Rosalie Sutherland, Gloria Ki'zrow, Margaret Dunn, June Dolge, Shirley Vogt, Charlotte Glass, Barbara Cook.

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 satisfaction. 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 40 Mountembl Third Row: Gail Altman, Shirley Vogt, Delores Olson, Catherine Carlisle, Margaret Dunn, Winifred Watson, Helen Wittman, Gertrude Johnson, Joan Atweil, Mary lou Baldwin, Joan Frost, Joan Taxay, Carla Schuh.

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. Officers this year were Lucma Kamp, president; Janet Wilson, secretary; and Patricia Belton, treasurer. 41 emailinml 711qu GM Third Row: Winifred Watson, Catherine Carlisle, Shirley Williams, Jane Klinefelter, Jean Ebling, Carol Christoffel, Ann Melcher, Helen Wittman, Sully Roney, Janice Matthews, Dorothy Chamberlain.

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.

Dr. Studley graciously accepted an invitation to address the group on the subiect of "Psychoneuroses". He is the able director of the Shorewood Hospital and Sonitorium. To foster good-will with other O.T.s, the Downer Club held a ioint meeting with the students of Mount Mary College. The club has begun a correspondence with O.T. clubs in other schools of Occupational Therapy within the United States and Canada. Through establishing inter-club contact, students here are able to exchange ideas and also promote a student relationship with other O.T.s. This year's officers included Mariorie MacMichael, president; Muriorie McKilIip, vice-presi- dent; Barbara Loomis, secretary; and Helen Gedney, treasurer.

"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 Panella, secretary-treasurer. 8! 81M 5471mm! 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, this is a gaily decorated container suspended from the ceiling. When it is successfully broken it showers iigoodies" over all participantsJ 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.

McLaren Hall parlor was the informal scene of the monthly meetings of the Marie Wollpert Verein, the organization in which members have the opportunity of furthering their knowledge of the German language and of acquainting themselves with the customs and culture of the Ger- man people. This yearis events opened with the presentation of colored slides portraying the romantic Ger- many of yesteryear. Of course, the climax of the first semester's activities was the traditional 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. Miss Rossberg is the honorary faculty member and adviser of the German Club, and Edythe Klug officiated as president. Lotte Moritz served as secretary-treasurer. 49 fa eucle 4mm 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. This year the club officers were Shirley Hart, president; and Helen Croell, secretary-treasurer. 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. 51 3W HPost it by Wednesday noon' are familiar words to many of Downer's budding journalists.

KaJala With this year, the Kodak, oldest publication at Milwaukee-Downer, launched into its second half- century of existence as a literary magazine. Changes in organization and format have been slow but significant through the years, until today Kodak is a publication worthy of the high standards of the college. Presented to the student body and faculty four times during the school year, this magazine contains the best literary attempts of the staff, interested con- tributors, and students in composition courses. Essays, short stories, book reviews, poems, and editorials have recently been supplemented by small pen- and-ink illustrations. Miss Moriorie Hill of the English department is the new faculty assistant to the Kodak board. She has gained wide experience in publication problems in college, and this has aided in making her help sympathetic and direct. This year board members who served in special capacities were Rosalie Suther- land who prepared the cover designs, and Rosemary Froemming who acted as advertising assistant to Beryl Webb. Editor, BETTY DOMROSE Business Manager, BERYL WEBB y. Editor, CONNIE VAN ERT Business Manager, JANET WILSON 71w Gmlm The Cumtux staff early discovered that they had a long iob and a merry one. When visions of sugar- plums should have been dancing through their heads they mounted panels. Instead of spring fever they were caught in a rush of deadlines . Jan pointed to dollars and sense when Connie spoke of radical ideas. Miss Hadley's initial advice and all that followed was backed by experience and helped to lay a firm foundation for all our plans. Wartime shortages, for the most part, carried over through this year and so nearly every member of the staff had opportunities to demonstrate her ver- satility. This may not be a very businesslike remark, but we want you to know that we had a lot of fun! Seated: Dolores Kirschner, Patricia Schaper, Janet Wilson, Connie Van Ert, Sally Jackson.

WWW 121k Wm www' WW mew S E DR U ml A E F 74Wmn gawk 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- er's observance of its thirty- first Founders' Day. In an address in the chapel Dr. Carey Croneis spoke on HApprecicttions". A tea for students and faculty was held in Holton Hall Parlor after the progra m . 71w GWM Scene 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 of caroling. 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.

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 presented to prom-goers at ten-fifteen.

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- ful advice.
