THE CUMTUX 0 mhefeen smnaifzeal gdfy-deden Editor JOAN KROENING MIRIAM ABBOTT J Business Manager s X X s We 5m $id PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENT BODY OF MlLWAUKEE-DOWNER COLLEGE Milwaukee Wisconsin Foreword . . . We, the staff, have found inspiration for this 1947 Cumtux in the spirit of Milwaukee-Downer College and the ideals it represents. Aspiring toward dignity, beauty, and simplicity, we have tried to express these qualities through art, in order to symbolize their signifi- cance in liberal education. It is thus that we dedicate Our book to the class of 1947, honoring their leadership, enthusiasm, and achievement which have made them so much a part of our college. fihaty I'd! gkapman Memo: iqdtho'mclen and 141521;: 19,411 llall 5131 360k eamlmu and yd mmmmmmmm wwwmwg 2 .mywwwmiwwwog $1 2 0 M 2 1 .7. "m 2 1m d n d d mm W I. Met: Our college is fortunate in having a library at once functional and beautiful. Behind its planning and its organization was an inspirational force which has made it a source, not only of guidance, but also of delight for the students. Miss Maud Mitchell, for many years our chief librarian, gave of her ingenuity and interest to establish and organize the library, making her person- ality felt in countless details. We at Milwaukee-Downer will re- member Miss Mitchell for this. Many of us will remember 100, her whimsical sense of humor and her sincere interest in helping the students individually. Therefore, we render our tribute to her memory with warm appreciation of her service and devotion to the college. PRESIDENT EMERITA ELLEN C.

While recalling their freshman l'daze'l and the traditional events at Downer, many a soph- omore appears dewy-eyed and mellow. The immortal strains of l'Sonny Boy", "Hey Ba-ba re- bop" and the 'lCharacters Eight" will live forever in the hearts of the purple class, as will Senior Cabaret, Hat Hunt, and numerous other activities, both academic and non-academic. On occasions when that heartless and domineering attitude was necessary, the '49-ers proved that they could not only take it, but could also make the frosh quiver.

As early as freshman days, the class of '50 realized the class spirit, the close friendship of their sister class, the proud traditions, and the prospective good times Milwaukee-Downer has to offer. The new class quicidy adapted themselves, and took advantage of every opportunity to dis- play their true red spirit. The early enthusiasm carried through the entire year. Each college event received a supporting hand from the freshmen. It is not only their big sisters who swell with pride over their achievements, but now that this first college year of theirs is nearing the end, and initiation days are over, all classes gladly embrace the freshmen to Downer's fold. 61 Third Row: Grayce Forsberg, Marilyn Hockings, Joanne Huger, Mary Ellen Hess, Patricia Hamilton, Jean Lord, Jane?

During the past twenty- five years, Miss Briggs has given generous and devoted service to the College and has imbued in countless students her own qualities of sincerity, honor, and integrity. We at HMDC" offer Miss Briggs our heartfelt congratulations and thanks for her inspiring leadership. gentenm'al eelehdtion Milwaukee-Downer College took an active part in the Milwaukee centennial celebration in November. A booth prepared by the art department and featuring a large mural was erected at the city auditorium- The mural showed an aerial view of the college, surrounded by symbols suggesting the liberal arts. Demonstrations of plastic work were given at the booth during the two-day period. Alumnae of Milwaukee-Downer presented a clever one-act play as part of a civic pageant, ttPioneer Women of the Century." The play, HA College for WomeneHmfl," was written by Mrs. Gertrude B. Jupp and illustrated the obstactes to a college education which a young woman had to face in 1850.

The stately seniors in their caps and gowns led the way for the gay yellow, purple, and white of the underclassmen. After receiving their red banner from Luana Kamp, of the red class of '46, the new class of '50 broke through the solemnity of Colors Day with their high- spirited song which resounded throughout the campus. This new class felt themselves welcomed and received by the rest of the college, as the iuniors, their "big sisters", bedecked each with a red ribbon. All voices rose on high in a tribute to this new class, as their banner was raised to the top of the flagpole where it remained for the rest of the day. 60 7-0th225 ' Way For those men and women whose gifts built the foundations of Milwaukee- Downer, the fhirty-second annual Founders' Day was observed. For the honored occasion Dr. Russell J. Clinchy spoke on "Education With a Central Meaning". After the program a tea was held in Holton Hall Parlor for the faculty and students. Courtexy of Milwaukee Sentinel 67 Courtery of Milwaukee Sentinel lflixet On Mixer night, the college became co- educational for a few hours. The gym, Holton dining room, and Greene lounge were at their festive best and so were the girls. The decor- ations, planned around a music motif, added a special dash to the affair. In fact, this year's Mixer showed particularly good plan- ning along all lines. We may thank Elizabeth Thurmon and Beryl Webb for their graceful handling of this largest social event. Moan te$am41 Mountebanks have proved themselves tttroupers" in the best sense of the word. This year has proved their abilities to be ever-in- creasing along a variety of lines.

A good crowd always bundles up to brave the storm on Lantern Night, making the brisk air alive with music. Rafters of hospitals and homes for the aged and orphaned ring with the old carols. In groups of two and three, the lights of swaying lanterns trace the path of the singers from door to door. There is a thrill in performing the old tradition of Lantern Night, and in seeing its results in the happy faces of the listeners. eAuBtmda earnival Step right up-and join the carnival spiritethe Christmas spirit!

We at Downer believe that this is true. Each Downer girl has an opportunity to choose whichever sport she prefers. In full there is archery, riding, rowing, and hiking. In winter, swimming, basketball, and bowling are the chief sports. Spring is truly a haven for sports enthusiasts, with golf, archery, tennis, softball, rowing, hiking, and riding. The Athletic Association provides a sports calendar filled with exciting events. This year Downer- ites participated in the riding show, swimming meet, golf tournament, and our traditional regatta. The Athletic Association recognizes skill and good sportsmanship by awarding class numerals and letters. The Blue Blazer iacket goes to the outstanding senior athlete. Officers for this year were Janet Bee, president,- Pat Schaper, vice-president; Caryl Perschchher, secretary; and Joanne Mahkorn, treasurer. Miss Heimbach and Miss Hamilton served as faculty advisors of the club. 78 Milwaukee Jourrml Photo HtcAety One of the best loved sports of both spring and fall is archery. As the archery season progresses, Downer ttRobin Hoods" become more adept at hitting the bullts eye. Their skill is seen in the annual spring tournament. Those who made the college team are Bobby Ann Armour, Mary Jeanne Bacon, Carol Christoffel, Carol Humann, Helen Harvey, Sally Jackson, Betty Jermain, and Amy Uchimoto. 79 Riding Joy Farm affords thrills to enthusiastic Downer riders. Winding trails, streams, wooded areas, and expansive fields add to riding enioyment. At the end of each season a supper ride is planned in conjunction with the competitive horse show. The highest award, the riding plaque, was awarded to Towner Wilcox. The all-college team was composed of Beryl Webb, Patricia Pollock, Margaret Ann Snow- den, Towner Wilcox, and Margery Cobb. iqockey With autumn comes hockey and many an afternoon of fun on the Downer hockey field. This year, the yellow class was undefeated hockey champion. The aIl-star blue team tied the white team in an exciting game. The all- college hockey team included Jean Schaper, Beverly Bates, Eileen Weir, Charlotte Glass, Elizabeth Levy, Betty Foss, Norma Berg, Joanne Mahkorn, Shirley Olin, Bernice Larson, and Janet Bee. Team? Another favorite spring sport is tennis. Downerites practice serves and strokes for many hours until they are ready to play on the courts. Here is Betty Foss, one of Wiscon- sin's tennis champions, during an exciting tournament game. Milwaukee Journal Pb om M Each spring Milwaukee fairways are taken over by enthusiastic Downer golfers trying to improve their last summer's scores. The girls practice their strokes on the athletic field until they are ready to play on the beautiful green carpeted course of Lake Park or Lincoln Park. The season is terminated by gn annual tour- nament. Nancy Gruenhagen and Anne Needham were elected to the college golf team. 81 Regatta With spring comes Regatta at Milwaukee-Downer.

Downer students learn about the workings of democracy through the College Government Association. This association of students is the Iaw-mqking body of the school and, by permitting the girls to air their views, has been instrumental in bringing about beneficial changes. An executive council, consisting of class presidents, heads of committees, heads of halls, president of the City Students' Organization and the elected officers of C.G.A., functions as a committee to work on various proposed proiects. CONNIE VAN ERT, PRESIDENT OF C.G.A. The more radical issues are discussed by a faculty- student council before being brought before the school. The inspiring Nativity puppet play which highlighted Christmas festivities this year was brought to Downer chiefly through the efforts of this council. Smoking rules, dress rules, freshman razzing, loans to social committee to help finance dances, and the sponsorship of school and class activities, all come under the jurisdiction of C.G.A.! This governing body is a live functioning group and by watching it in action on campus, Downer Cole lege students come to realize the true meaning and application of democracy, which in itself, is one of the most important parts of a college education. 83 Third Row: Ru'h Mehring, Shirley Glaubifz, Betty Fass, Marian Chrislenson.

Kodak As in the previous fifty years of its existence, the Kodak this year had its lens focused on the best literary attempts of student writers. Four times during the school year, staff members gathered in the Kimberly office to select, edit, and proof read the contributions of fellow Kodak workers, inter- ested class mates, and students in composition classes. In addition to presenting the purely literary efforts of its contributors, Kodak has aimed at awakening an increased interest in world affairs among Downer students by presenting editorials and articles on significant world events. Working with the stuff this year were Miss Mary Louise Cameron and Miss Harriet Sweetland, faculty advisers, whose suggestions and help straightened out many of the publication problems facing the staff. Estelle Hausmann and Jane Rumpf handled the art work while Rosemary Froemming, business manager, was assisted by Jean Sauer.

Mrs. RusseH Jupp, faculty spon- sor, offered instructive and sympathetic advice whenever it was needed. Helen Stetler and Jean Olsen were chiefly responsible for the feature material printed, while Marion Barnes and Eliza- beth Lovetand shared laurels in regard to the verse. The original cartoons of Estelle Hausmann again played an im- portant part in the papeHs make-up.

"The drama's laws the drama's patrons give, For we that live to please, must please to live." Dr. Johnson well expresses the sentiment of every Mountebank in this couplet. Under the inspiring leadership of Miss Ruth Reber and Miss Gloria Cerrato, whom we are happy to welcome to the Department of Speech and Drama this year, the club has worked with zest and vigor. The apprentice players demonstrated their initiative by entertaining the group with a sparkling variety show. They have also learned the 'iins and outs" associated with successful production. The enthusiastic Mountebanks under the stimulating guidance of Miss Cerrato have spent many enioyable hours working behind the scenes, as well as playing before the footlights, and have reason to be pleased with numerous accomplishments: a well-equipped scene shop, on improved costume room, green room, make-up studio, and new ticket office. 90 lfloun teh'nlj Third Row: Peggy Fehleisen, Janet Huber, Dolores Kirschner, Anne Needham, Mona Dizon, Barbara Schuerch, Jean Stofts, Elaine Berger, Mona Weisberg, Shirley Morse, Jean Olsen.

In 1853 e when the City of Milwaukee was 7 years 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 in the past, this outstanding bank serves not only as faithful guardian of its depositor's funds, but as an active partner in the continuing progress of the community.
