THE STUDENT BODY OF
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.

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

ltis not only the vividness of the purple class which makes it an outstanding group in our
college, but their combination of enthusiasm, spirit, and determination is not easily surpassed.
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.
An excerpt from the sophomore class song summarizes the spirit of the purple classeHGive
a shout for the royal purple banner, Downer is the place for me!"

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.

M135 321'775' anniversary
On May 7, 1946, trustees, faculty, and alumnae gathered for celebration of Miss Lucia Rus-
sell Briggs' silver anniversary as president of Milwaukee-Downer College. 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.
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
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 day was bright and clear as the four classes walked grandly from Albert Hall into the
Horseshoe. 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.

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.

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.
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. The plays
given were of an interesting and successful
type. There was a new zest added to pub-
licity campaigns and clever finishing touches
evident at each performance.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow . . . Downer's Christmas spirit cannot be thwarted. A good
crowd always bundles up to brave the storm on Lantern Night, making the brisk air alive with music.

and three, the lights of swaying lanterns trace the path of the singers from door to door. There is a

Christmas Carnival meant an afternoon of shopping and funevisiting the side show and Soph-
omore Sallies, while munching taffy apples and pop corn. Merle Epstein and Nancy Bump combined
efforts to make it a favorite event this year with a good cause in view. All profit went to charitable
organizations as most of the "stock" was donated by Milwaukee stores.

It has been said that good sportsmanship is essential to a happy life. 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
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.

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.
Joy Farm affords thrills to enthusiastic
Downer riders. Winding trails, streams,

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

den, Towner Wilcox, and Margery Cobb.
With autumn comes hockey and many an
afternoon of fun on the Downer hockey field.

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.

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.

"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.

and the classic Antigone.

to use their hands. The products of their labors were used as Christmas gifts.
Dr. Studley, director of the Shorewood Hospital and Sanitarium, again honored the club with art

Here where the stubborn vines climb high
v About the walls, where each new day
Draws its deep shadows on the dial,
Where silent towers streak the sky,
Here dignity and wisdom stay
And speak their eloquent denial
Of formless fears. These are the days
When terror lies upon the earth,
The numbing tragedy of war,
When we must search the untried ways
To give the world its second birth,
More pure, more fearless than before.
The past repeats its warning to us now,
A somber voice, beneath the hcwthornts bough.

was 7 years young!
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.
