Babcock was for many years Director of the School ol Mines ami Dean ol the School of Kngincering at the I diversity ol North Dakota. I le did much pioneer work in develop inj uses for lignite coal and North Dakota clay. For these things he is well known. I'hat he also played a great part in outlining the plans for the the present organization of the State School of Science is not so genera ly I nown. For a lew years previous to 1922 the exact function of the Slate School ol Science was not very clearly defined. In the summer oi 1921 the State Board ol Administration requested Dean Babcock to study the State School ol Science and the other educational institutions in the state as well as educational institutions in other states and report hack to them his recommendations as to the function of the school. I le made this study during the summer and fall of 1921, making very extensive trips to study the educational systems of other states. I le made the final report to the Board of Administration in May, 1922, and this report was adopted by the Board of Administration, defining the future function of the State School ol Science exactly as written hv Dean Babcock. I le defined its function as a State Trades School and a Junior College of Arts and Sciences. This is the fifth year that the State School of Science has been operating in strict accordance with the plans of Dean Babcock. This has been long enough to prove beyond any doubt the high worth of Dean Babcock's recommendations. In recognition of his services in formulating the present plan of our school, this page is dedicated to Dean Babcock. BOARD or EE.DIEHL J. v.KlTClIEX wj. church berth , palmerGreetings from the Board O IT IS a pleasure for me to express briefly the feeling of the Stale Board of .Administration toward the State School of Trades and Industries. I am sure that I am expressing the thoughts of every member of the Board of Administration when I say that I believe the State of North Dakota is receiving a high rate of interest on its investment in this institution. You are doing a work that is tangible and immediate in its results. To train the young men and women of our state, and to qualify them for remunerative work, means, in a large sense, real preparation for good citizenship, the basis of which is self-reliance. With the growing complexity of our social and industrial structure, the necessity of preparing skilled workers, as well as thinkers, is apparent. The common criticism aimed at our institutions of learning, is that they do not adequately prepare young people to do any particular kind of work. While this criticism is only partially fair, it actually has come foundation in fact. In our mechanical age. it is surely important that society he constantly producing an army of skilled workers. The State of North Dakota is now thoroughly committed to carrying out the function designed by our fathers for this particular institution. The very fact that your population is drawn from all corners of the state, shows the general interest of the people of the stale in your institution. May I express on behalf of the Board of Administration the hope that you all work together, both faculty and students, to carry on the splendid work you have already so well begun. With your line new trades building and your earnest and skillful faculty, your future is indeed bright. Sincerely. R. B. Mi kniv. l.njhtti nTo tin: Sn m;. Ts of tiik Si. n: School m Sciknci:: TrII ; Agawasic Stall lias requested from me a brief statement for their 192S publication. It comes to me that this year has been outstanding from the standpoint of recognition the nature of the school has received from outside sources. I bis vear I believe we began to see tangible results of several years of work on the part of faculty and students. I-or several years the school has been struggling under difficulties to put over a plan that is cntirclx new in education. Phis plan was started without adequate buildings or funds and had to have its merits recognized he I ore funds could be secured. The quality of students secured to work out this new plan « I education has been unusual and the recognition of the plan had to come Irom the success of the students. The construction ol the New Trades Building this year is a substantial recognition of the success of the plan and ot the school. The dedication exercises of the New Trades Building and the publicity around that dedication made this success widely known. I believe that in future years the year 1928 will be recognized as the outstanding year in the development ol the State School of Science and that the class of 1928 will look back upon their year of graduation with much pride. - Frank II.

Student Cabinet is the most influential organization ami serves as the governing hotly of the school. It is composed of five members elected by the student body during the fall term of each year. The president of the cabinet must be. according to the constitution, a senior in the junior college department. The commercial, trades, high school, and winter term trades departments each elect a member to represent their department in the interest and governing power of the school. President Riley, cx-oflicio member of the cabinet, assists and advises them. Pile cabinet controls the student funds, arranges for the social activities. nominates the editor of the Small Pica; Agawasie: and appoints the business managers for the athletic association and the Penny Carnival. Members for this school year were: President. Donald Aird. junior college; Idah Williams, high school; Opal I.nick, commercial; Vern Doherty, trades; Donald I laggard, winter trades.

STAFF LOYOLA wole Kathleen QLILITZ DONALD AIRD E,I A A S KIN( 3 PICA MARGARET IIIOMAS CLARA BERNARD GEORGIA RECKERT WILBER El -MDAYThe Small Pica Al'TKK six successful years the Small Pica is still going strong! The primary purpose of the paper was to furnish a definite goal for printing students. It proved such a success and received such heartv welcome by the student body that it was voted the school paper. The term “Small Pica” may seem vague to the general reader. A few years ago a size of type, eleven points, was cast. Since twelve points makes a pica (a pica being a printer’s unit of measure) the eleven point was a point smaller so became known as “small pica”. The queer title is due to the fact that the paper was primarily intended for printing students. The Small Pica has tended to deviate from the conventional junior college news style because of the various departments in the school. The purpose of tilt paper has thus come to be a medium through which faculty, alumni and students are informal of the happenings of the institution. The mailing list of the Small Pica has grown from 900 to .5000 names, this includes the exchanges. The Small Pica has built up an exchange list from schools much larger than its own. Many come from long distances, representatives of these arc the karmin of the Montana State L”. and the Dayton Beach, Florida. Poland Chcstncy, editor, and Georgia Keckert. assistant alitor, have succeeded well in making a “go" of the Pica, but much praise is also due to the staff consisting of: Kathleen Quilitz, Margaret Thomas, I.ayola Wolf, Donald Aird, Kllis king and Clara Bernard, and the members of the journalism class who have given much of their time in making such a successful year for the Pica. Thirty-nineTill-. Kngineers proved themselves the most initiative this year hv being the first to organize. The dub held a social meeting every two weeks, subjects pertaining to electricity being discussed. Program and lunch followed. The purpose of the club was to bring a closer relationship between the trade students and an open discussion of modern trade problems in electricity. Officers for the year were: President, Martin Ilarff: vice president. Donald Aird: secretary-treasurer, I'.lmer Butcher; sergeant at arms, George Brewster. I' r y Honorary “S” Club ONK of the oiliest ami most active organizations of the school is the I Ionorary “S" Club which is composed of all those who have been awarded the Science ‘‘S“ for athletic achievement and also the athletic coach. The fundamental purpose of the club is to foster and maintain a high standard of athletics in our school. The Science ‘S” is the highest honor that can be conferred by the school for athletic achievements and is awarded to those who have played a required amount of time on any of the Science teams in inter-college competition throughout the season, and whose sportmanship has endured through that time. Members l the club this year are: h.dilie Achter, 1'rank Sykora. Kenneth Lckes, Marvin Strubcl. Del.os Williams. Clifford Johnson. Walter Kidcm. Donald Aird, Allan Weed, Joseph Skovholt, Louis Schmitt. Wilbur Lunday, Arthur Nelson. Gordon Canham. Llmer Butcher. Arnold Strand. Maris Beeson, Cilenn Walrath. fed McCullough, George Brewster, Orville Persons. Coach Bute is an honorary member and faculty adviser of the club. Fcrty-nnfThe Orchestra TI IK S. S. S. Orchestra is deserving a great deal of credit for the an tiring effort they have displayed this year in furnishing entertainment for assemblies and other school functions. The orchestra has been a school ogani .ation for several years and has grown to be a better organization each year, this year being its most successful. We can say more for the orchestra than any other organization in school for it was called upon to perform at practically every convocation and never failed to respond. Convocation speakers never failed to compliment our orchestra. Much credit for the success of our weckl programs is due to Mr. Masica under whose direction the orchestra lias reached its present form. Members of the orchestra were: Mr. Masica. violin; Lcandcr Schaffer; trumpet: Raymond Schaeffer, saxaphone; Roland Chestney, violin; Georgia Reckcrt, violin: l.ucylle Williams, piano; Roy Harden, trumpet: Mr. Condit, clarinet; David Nelson, sousaphonc. Since the picture was taken three new members have been added to the orchestra. They are: Forrest I .owe, bass: Bernard Hartman, trombone: I larold Burke, drums. I'orly-lwoThe Commerce Club Tl IK Commerce Club lias the largest membership «»t any ot the school clubs. Ii is composed of students carrying one or more commercial subjects. Any member of the faculty teaching in the commercial department is considered an honorary member. The club aims toward the promotion of interest among the students in the business world, to encourage a social spirit among the students and to have the members become conversant with modern, progressive business methods and systems, endeavoring by such means to raise and maintain higher standards of efficiency. The club has attained the most satisfactory results due to the fact that there is the spirit of cooperation among its members. Sponsors of the club are: Mr. Masica, Miss Walton and Miss Madden. The officers during the present year were: President. Olive Pederson: vice-president, Helen Kosck: secretary-treasurer. Joe llaily; publicity manager, kermit Mass.The Oratorical Club TIIK Oratorical Club was organized several years ago with the primary purpose of sponsoring an oratorical contest.

President Riley Musical Number - Arthur Nelson, Don Aird, Allan Weed Reading, “Behind a Curtain" - - Augusta Schmitt Violin Solo ..... Roland Chestney Musical Number .... School Orchestra Miss Lucylle Williams and her orchestra furnished the music for the dancing and those who did not join in this form of merriment spent the evening at cards. Above all, the object of the evening was accomplished—many new acquaintances were made. The pep and enthusiasm shown at this lirst party did much to insure the success of those succeeding it. Till IIALLOWI HN ball All the fo’k of spiritdom attended the Science I Iallowe'en party. (Jay anil carefree were they as they swayed to the enticing music produced by Miss l.ucvlle Williams’ orchestra. Some of the older and more solemn spirits entertained themselves at the steadfast game of cards, but were compelled to enter some of the more lively fun when they were strewn with gay-colored confetti by their mirthful comrades. At ten-thirty masks were removed and the laughing faces of school friends appeared smiling into other faces they thought to be some one else. The dancing program was interrupted at intervals lor a musical program. The I ligh School Quartette delighted the guests with two selections and later in the evening the Condit Sisters sang a lew of their amusing ditties. When the music ceased at twelve o'clock, the tairics slowly disappeared with gavety still reigning as their qmcn. Prizes awarded for costumes were: Most appropriate, rthur Nelson.

November 5. 1927—ami hoy. oh boy, what a party it was. It was one of those yo'i read about, but seldom attend. Coach Bute and his Knights of the Gridiron tossed aside their helmets and moleskins and signals were called for the staging of a party. The play was perfectly executed. There were no stars, each man performed in his highest capacity to show his lady guest a "best ever “ affair. What formerly was known as the handball court was transformed into a gala ballroom by the decorating committee—a proper setting for what was to take place. About 8 o’clock the guests began announcing their arrival. I hos? arriving early enjoyed a few rounds of whist and bridge. Skipper Bute, master of ceremonies, stepped to the helm at 8:15 by the football chimes and announced the memorable words "F.verybody dance!” It is always a pleasure to dance to the music of such orchestras as Ted Lewis’, Paul Whiteman’s and Waring’s Pennslyvanians. Alter a few dances the I Ion. Art Nelson favored us with two vocal solos acompanied by Allan Weed. Then what happened? No—you guessed wrong—cause the Skipper announced a "circle two-step.” Fun? Why man. we never had so much fun since the old cow died. While they were recovering from the two-step Don and Al rendered a couple of vocal duets before the multitude. No groceries were available and they escaped without injury. “Lucy" Williams then accompanied the group at the piano while they sang a few ensemble numbers. Dancing again to the music ol world famous artists, lor deviation, Lucy’s. Al’s and Loyola’s orchestra sat in for a couple of numbers which were all very well received by the Knights and Ladies. About 11:15 the feast began. "Do have some more sandwiches,” "Please, may I help you to some more cake, " I here s lots more ice cream, folks,”—just the words we all like to hear said when lunch is being served at a party. Those who "played their hunch” and didn’t eat supper Friday night were certainly in high spirits. More dancing and the last dance at 1 1 :d5 which finally ended in "I lome. Sweet I lomc". orly-rit liiTHANKSGIVING PARTY November 18, 1927 The party of parties, was the Royal Thanksgiving party, held at the gymnasium Friday, November 18. I he enthusiasm shown by the large crowd attending toward the various activities of the evening made the party a "whiz.” First on the program was a grand march led by Mr. and Mrs. McMillan. The boys and girls followed with their respective partners. A circle two step dispelled any possible gloom present. You should have seen the boys scramble for their partners. “Pat" I lemmer directed the dancers in their wild movements in his position as official caller—for he has a wonderful voice. In the course of the evening the “S" club sang "Go, Science, Go" and were so entertaining that they responded to an encore with the pep-inspiring song, "Washington Swing." An invitation dance was a novel feature for the party and the rest of the evening was spent in its entertainment. "S" Cl.LB PARTY December 2. 1927 Pile "S" club members held their first party December 2. 1927 in the handball room of the school gymnasium. Seventeen couples were present including Mr. and Mrs. Karl Bute and Mr. and Mrs. Petei Masica. Kveryone was out tor a good time anti they had it. Two features of the evening were the stunts and the moonlight walt es. The entertainment was provided for by the guests themselves. Several groups of guests were chosen from the crowd and each group pu. on an impromptu stunt, which included singing, dialogues, readings and silent vaudeville. The moonlight waltzes had been carefully planned and were distinctly out of the ordinary. Music was furnished by the Bell 1 lop Orchestra. Till- CHRISTMAS PARTY Friday, December 9, 1927 One of the gayest and most beautiful parties in the winter social season was the Christmas party held at the Science School gymnasium. The beautifying feature of this affair was the tall green tree standing gaily decorated in the center of the room and hoarding many small packages among its graceful branches. The curiosity of the guests as to I'urty-nincdie contents of these packages was satisliccl when, later in the evening. Santa Claus anti his helpers passed among the crowd. Walter Kelly, the popular Wahpcton tenor, sang several numhers as the feature of the evening. The remaining hours sped away while the students danced to the music of the “Bell I lop" orchestra, reluctant to leave when the drowsy tones of "I lomc. Sweet 1 lome" ended the party. FOOTBALL BANQl'FT January 12, 1928 At the annual football banquet, held at Burch I I all, Klmer Butcher, two year electrical student at the State School of Science, was elected loot-hall captain for the 1928-29 football season. I lis admirable skill in playing recommends him highly as a leader for the Wildcats. The prominent speaker of the evening was I. |. Cortright from the Agricultural College at Fargo. Mr. Cortright stressed the necessity of athletics in the life of the student. “Friendly relations between schools is necessary." said Mr. Cortright, “regardless of size or strength. Such relations make for better athletic events and better scholarship. We. at the A. C., have always had a friendly feeling toward the Science School. We hope we have more athletic contests. We are proud l the team that beat the Bison last Saturday. We know that that defeat will be lor the betterment of athletics at the A. C. Likewise, we are proud of Coach Bute, a former letterman and student at the A. C. For part of the success he has achieved, we take credit." Coach Cortright refuted the criticisms directed against athletics by people who claim that too much money is being spent in that direction. For every dollar spent this way. the public gets value received in amusement. F.xccpt for traveling expenses and incidentals, all the money is turned hack to the student body for the development of physical education. Mr. Cortright continued his talk with experiences of his own football career. I lis audience was highly entertained. Toastmaster of the occasion was Professor |. C. McMillan. President Riley took the position of “kick-off man" and started the ball down the field. Captain Achtcr gave a short talk on “Interference." I Ic was followed by Sykora who presented the football to Captain-elect Butcher. Coach Bute gave one of his famous between-halves talks and cone'uded his remarks with a survey of the season. Present at the banquet were: Coach Cortright, President Riley, Professor McMillan. Coach Bute, Captain Achtcr, Captain Sykora. 'iffyCaptain-elect Butcher, Weed, Canhain, Williams, Johnson. Aird. Nelson. Brady, Kidcni. Wilson, hekes. Summerville, Walrath. Pcschcl, Strubel. I .unday, Schmitt, Skovholt, and Persons. SI-CONI) GKT-ACQL'AINTKI) PARTY January 17, 1928 The winter term students were initiated into the social activities of Science at one of the gayest parties of the year. When the gymnasium doors opened at eight o’clock, the crowd began to gather and acquaintances were soon, made, thanks to the irristiblc music of Miss Lucyllc Williams' orchestra. Card tables provided fun for those who did not dance. Although there was no program, entertainment was furnished by a variety of dance specials. When "I lome. Sweet I lomc” was played at eleven-thirty, all took leave, looking forward to many more such fun producers. KUXTRICIANS’ PARTY January 27. 1928 Twenty-live electricians led their ladies fair through countless dances at their party held in the Triple “S” gymnasium. January 27. 1928. At half past eight the party seemed more like the annual stag instead of a dancing party—until a stream of chatter and laughter announced the arrival of the female element. Prom 9 until 12 dancing continued and when throats were dry. three large kegs supplied the needed Minnehaha Pale or grape punch. Ray Schaeffer’s Burch 11 all Six produced wonderful music and helped to make the Klectrician’s party one of the hottest of the year. PARTY January 31, 1928 Rather as a last minute sup rise to many, a party was hc!d at the Science School gym on the last evening in January. The softly shaded lights of many previous affairs cast their subdued radiance upon the dancing throng. The familiar faces of the I loyle experts again appeared in their places at the end of the hall and the usual jolly, informal atmosphere-pervaded. The Bell I lops furnished their syncopating harmonies with their usual vim and vigor, doing their bit in making the evening a success. Fifty-oneROTARY ASSKMBLY February 2. 1928 . ringing dicer from the Science School student body greeted the Wahpeton Rotarians as the business men marched into the assembly room on their annual visit to the school. In reply Dr. II. 11. Blister led a kotarian cheer for the Science School. After a few selections by the school orchestra, Allan W eed gave a talk n the Agawasie. I le gave a number of reasons why business men should support advertising pages in the annual, lie noted especially that this was the only request of financial nature the school makes upon the community. After his conc’usion the program was turned over to the business men. President kuss (lowland of the kotarians, was then introduced by President Riley. Mr. (lowland spoke of the local interest in the Science School and also gave a farmer's viewpoint of the benefit of our trades department. Next on the Rotary program was assembly singing led by Art Pauls rud. A special hit at this time was the vigorous rendition by the whole gang of “do, Science (io!” Kotarian “Chet" Dunham, known in Ins ultra-kotarian dignity as the Rev. C. I’. Dunham of the I irst Congregational Church, gave a talk on r iy-fw vocational education and guidance. The title for his subject was "Know Your Onions." The theme dealt with the comparison of educational and personal culture to onion raising with its problem of soil and cultivation. BOYS' STAG PARTY February 8. 1928 At the Stag Party held on February 8. the electricians held first place with fifteen points. The point-getters for the ohms and watts were: Art Nelson and Allan Weed, wheelbarrow race: Mutt Lambert, pie-eating contest: 1 I a r ft. wrestling. One point was also obtained in the tug-of-war. Auto-electricians and auto-mechanics were second with fourteen points. The point-getters for the spark-plugs were: VanI lorn, pie-eat- ing: Levno, obstacle: Peterson and Severson, three-legged race. One point was won in the tug-of-war contest. The printers and junior college tied tor third place.

Scores were also made in the pie-eating and wheelbarrow race. The ones next in order: Bricklayers, nine points: draftsmen, seven points: plumbers, six points: and commercial, three points. V I'i ty-tlir,-,'At eight o'clock the party started with a volley ball game between Science and the Wahpeton business men. Science came out ahead in both the games played. After the business men had withdrawn, Art Paulsrud led the gang in singing several songs. Then the stunts began with lien Barnard in charge. After exercise had sharpened appetites, the disappearing act came off and the way the weinies and buns made a fade-away was nothing short of a miracle. After the eats some entertaining was done by a few of the Burch I fall boys which included an accordian selection by the “Mountain Boy.” Don Moffatt, Aardald and Peterson tickled cleverly the strings of their various musical instruments and the Burch 1 I a 11 quartette sang several of their favorite songs for the enjoyment of their friends. • S“ CLUB PARTY February 10. 1928 The “S" club party held after the Jamestown game Friday, February 10, in the handball room was a huge success. The members of the club will boast about their parties long after they leave Science. Those present at the party were the members of the club, the second team, and of course, everyone had his lady partner. Flic cheer leaders were in attendance also. I ligh spirits prevailed because of the spectacular victory over the Jimmies. The orchestra waxed hot. notably during the circle two-steps, which aided most in pepping up the party. Ice cream and pop, left from the “S" club’s sale at the game, served as refreshments for the crowd. Skipper Bute was big hearted ami sold pop at half price. At 12 o’clock the party was declared post mortem and the “S" club members and their guests departed, thoroughly pleased with the evening. COMMKRCIAL CLUB PARTY February 17, 1928 The Commerce Club held its only party of the year Friday, February I 7. I 928. Lach member had the privilege of inviting a guest to the dance A rather unique program was followed. The lirst dance was to he given to the first boy to ask for it. The second dance was optional and the third ladies’ choice. This form was carried out throughout the entire evening_! with the aim of giving everyone an equally enjoyable time. Results were satisfactory. lifty-fourSWEDE RA-RA TWINS FORE US GIRLS GIRLS KID PARTY I-if tv-fivePARTY (U'.XT) February 28, 1928 Although a smaller crowd than usual gathered at the gymnasium on the evening of February 28, the majority of those attending had lots of fun. The size of the crowd probably due to the Lenten season. Card sharks played their expert hands at their end of the ball. Chcstncy's Bell 1 lops entertained and were encored repeatedly. Dancing started at 8:30 and ceased when the music died at 11. GIRLS KID PARTY February 29. 1928 For one whole evening the Science School girls discarded the more sophisticated airs and romped and played once again like the little children they used to be. When the doors opened at eight o’clock they were all there, sweet little girls and sturdy small boys. And what a hilarious time they had, joining enthusiastically when they played “Farmer in the Dell” or “Lemonade.” F.vcn old Grandpa forgot bis age toward the last and was as young as any of them, (jay colored horns were distributed among the kiddies and for a time the gym fairly rang with the noise they made. Then the kiddies were instructed to line up and march around the room, getting their refreshments as they marched past the serving committee. What wonderful eats—pop. gum. doughnuts and stickers—everything that kiddies love. Fifty-fixA suit case race between Thelma Olson and Lorenc Gardner was won by the former. F.vcryonc joined in the peanut hunt. At 10 o’clock Leonard Dahl presented himself and the rest of the evening the kids spent their time in dancing to the lilting tunes from the “Mountain Bov's" accordian. CARNIVAL March 16-17. 1928 Vea, Carnival! I wo nights of dance and revelry were those of Friday and Saturday, March 16 and 17 at Science. Bright lights, gay colors, and syncopating music all extolling the festive spirit of the Science school 1927-28 Penny Carnival. Ballyhoo men shouted their wares from all sides of the gym—some making their theme “Hats—hot dog, ice cream, and pop." Others persuading the crowd to play their games of chance. The wildman was present, repellent in his dirty pen. In the same booth sat the tinnest man alive, a victim of Burch I fall grub. Next came the fortune-telling booth where Madame I laug and her assistants reveled the future of their lager audiences. In the Devil’s rent, scares were plentiful. The hair-raising stories of the fiery creature were shocking to many. The dance floor, the main attraction of both evenings was we.I crowded. The Bell I lops doing their stuff with a vim. The feature shows, the Pollies and Sam n 1 lenry. were confined to to the first floor. This year’s Pollies took the form of a revue. Old King Cole (John Ness) was bored with the world and implored his jester (Jell Condit) to bring on some amusing form of entertainment. The jester did—and how! First he dragged in a chorus who wanted to know who their boy friend was. The king wasn’t interested. 'The Saxaphone Players I luce brought with them a lot of harmony. Still the old sovereign wore a grouch. After listening to a few discords from the "Mountain Boy’s harp, the king was about to dispose of him immediately, when the Jester hcsccchcd a second hearing. Still the light melodies played this time on the "Mountain Boy’s" accordian failed to chase the frown away. Two children sang and danced for his highness, only to draw a ghost smile to his lips. A great lady singer from the Grand Opera singing “Among My Souvenirs” was soothing, yet did not satisfy the longings of Old King Cole. Then a whirring sound—a crash of music—and in crept Mademoiselle Pomme dc Terre en Casserole, in the dance of the Seven eils. “She glided gracefully through the steps of “her” dance, while the Jester removal fearfully the veils, one at a time. The King smiled, then chuckled and with the removal of the dancer s •last veil he laughed as the mademoiselle made a Hying leap for back stage. 'The (irand Finale was an effective ending for this different performance. Sam n I Ienry, the other feature performance, was full of wise cracks concerning Sam’s quest for a wife. There was no action in this performance. The darkies talked over the radio and were only seen at the last, when they were introduced to the audience. The second night’s performance was a continuance of the first night’s Sam n I fenry show. The entire student body and faculty did their share in putting over this year’s Carnival. The carnival committee is to he warmly thanked for their efficient directing. They are: Roland Chestney. Opal I .nick. Ida!) Williams, Clifford Johnson, and Orville Persons. BASKETBALL BANQUET March 29. 1928 “Bud” Beeson, of Brcckcnridge, one of the outstanding stars of the 1928 Wildcat victorious basketball team was chosen captain of the 1929 team at the first annual public banquet of the team at Burch 1 fall. Thursday, March 29, 1928. Beeson played an exceptional game at guard on this year's team until injuries in mid-season forced him from the play. Malley Nvdahl. star of Minnesota’s championship football team, was principal speaker at the banquet and emphasized the value of clean athletics in the matter of building character. I lis talk was much appreciated and did much to make the banquet the success it was. Members of the team of 1928 were presented with their letters lor their work in basketball by Coach Bute, who complimented the team on the spirit displayed during the season. Sweaters were presented to Beeson. Strand, Schmitt. Brewster and McCullough. Capt. Achter. Johnson, I .unday and Strubel were presented with blankets for their services. Declaring that athletics make men, Mallev Nvdahl, hero of football, basketball and baseball at Minnesota I', told of many amusing incidents in his career in sports. 1 le congratulated the ildcats on their record of Fi ly-ninrthe past season, i he matter of winning every amc on the schedule is in-ilecil a record to be proud ol. Seldom is this accomplished. As I remem-her. Minnesota made that record during the season of 1918. This feat is remarkable especially in basketball when a team may be thoroughly in form one evening and out of form another". Nydahl gave many interesting reminiscences of games in the Big Ten. The main part of his discourse dealt with character building. I le told of the spirit of fun and comrad-ship in association ol athletes on trips and home games. “In point of character." he said, “athletics impresses the (|ualities of determination, persistency, sell-sacrilice. endurance, playing to win. sportmanship." I le illustrated these points by man;, interesting reminiscenses. In conc.usion he emphasized this point especially, “Always play the game to win—Ini' if you have given your best and lost, be a good loser. But play to win." During the dinner, music was furnished by the school orchestra. rt Paulsrud. Rotary District song leader, led occasional singing. Vocal numbers were furnished by Opal I.uick and the "S" Club |uartet. Alter dinner several short talks were given, preceeding the address of Mallev Nydahl. President Riley, speaking for the school, expressed pride in this season’s performance of the Wildcat team. Capt. P.ddie Achter look pleasure in recalling the line spirit and team work ol his fellow players, the line coaching of Karl Bute, and the support of the students and local fans, gave formal recognition to each man on the team, and linallv turned over the captaincy for the next year to Maris Beeson, who replied with a speech of acceptance. SixtyELECTRICAL CLUB PROUD-LIKE PHYSICS CLASS VISITORS PLUMBERS KING A"o JESTER Dr. II. II. Pfistcr. mayor-elect of Walipcton, congratulated the team and school and promised the continued support of the city. Coach Bute expressed appreciation of the team, explained the circumstances at the University which prevented the game with them and made awards of letters, sweaters and blankets. HOBO DAY April 20. 1928 I lobo Day, held annually at the State School of Science leaves a colorful memory of the student's school life. This year it was held Friday, April 20, 1928 and was unusually sucessful despite bad weather which hindered some of the entertainment plans. Classes were a riot of color throughtout the day. Long skirts, corn cob pipes and red noses prevailed in the scene. At 3 o'clock more hoboes joined the gang. Seniors from Walipcton and Breckenridge high schools were invited as special guests for the occasion. The cold weather prevented a game scheduled between the State I (oboes and the Wops, therefore the bums and skirts made their way to the gym where the “skiots" did their stuff at “kitten ball." At 6 o'clock word was passed around that mulligan was ready and oh!—the hungry hord of hoboes that came to feast. After everyone had had his fill they sat around the camp fire listening to “Blackic Jim" tell tales of real hobo life. “Blackic Jim" Kirkpatrick and “Slim Jim" Kirkby are the first real hoboes to be present at an S. S. S. hobo celebration. They enjoyed the make-believe bums immensely and “Blackic Jim's" talk on hobo life left something new with the guests. “I’m kin to the duck." he said. “We hoboes follow the harvest seasons like the birds follow warm weather and food. L’s bums get hungry once in a while anti will take anything to cat, but we don’t like the looks of that big lemon pie icing that falls from the sky. It means no stars to sleep under, and no warm earth to hug tight to. Brother Bos and Sister Bos. don’t be a bum unless you have to. Work hard and get your education. Remember that most hoboes become so because of a family quarrel, or lack of money and not because they want to." Prizes for the most typical boy and girl hoboes were awarded to Arnold Strand and Mary Whitson. A prize also went to George Brewster for having the longest beard of all the hoboes. Sixly-IW'jPRINTERS VISIT FARGO FORUM On March 6, students in the printing department motored to Fargo to visit the Forum during working hours. The class was conducted through the entire plant and was allowed to inspect all the equipment of “North Dakota's largest newspaper.” Since the call was made when the cven- $ixty-thrc(•ing edition ol’ the Forum was going to press, the students had the opportunity to view a daily newspaper shop during its most busy time. I hey followed the paper through the process of make-up and stem-type, and then were taken to the press room. I I ere they watched the paper as it was put on the giant press and marked its progress through the printing, folding, and mailing stages. The class found the trip both interesting and instructive and came back to their own printing shop with a clearer conception of the metropolitan newspaper in the making. This trip was made through the courtesy of the Forum.

CKISC MM I yri - ...—i—- — V I Sixty-sevenThe Football Season AND with the tailing leaves came the football season. About twenty men responded to the cal! for football candidates and among them were eight lettermen. The material looked pretty good and Coach Bute hammered it into a fairly presentable shape before the season opened against I lankinson I ligh. There was a good supply of fairly husky linemen, but there was a noticeable lack of weight in the hackficld. The backlicld candidates were fast ami shifty, but none of them had the size to make them good line plungers. 1 he I lankinson game revealed some weaknesses which were remedied before the Wildcats went into action against Valley City. All in all. the season was quite successful. Science-tied with Moorhead, for second place in the conference. The 6 to II defeat at the hands of the Vikings cost the Wildcats the conference title. yixly-riyhlSCIENCES; IIANKINSON HIGH SCHOOL 6 'I'llv Wildcats started the season in a manner that augured ill tor any opponents whom they would meet during the 1927 season, by trampling on 1 lankinson high school to the tune of a HO to ( score. The Wildcats scored their lirst touchdown ten minutes alter the game started and from then on the result of the game was never in doubt. The line functioned well, but the backlield couldn’t remember the signals and this resulted in a loss of countless touchdowns. I lankinson played a stalling game and failed to make a lirst down from scrimmage during the entire contest. The high school boys put up a game light, but were no match for tlitir older and bigger opponents. I lankinson’s lone touchdown, which came near the end of the game, was the result of an intercepted pass. The team looked good, but the lack of coordination was sadly apparent at times. SCIENCE 0; VALLEY CITY 6 Valiev City destroyed the Wildcats’ hopes for a football championship by handing them a 6 to 0 beating on Science field. I he game was nobody’s during the first three quarters. Although the Red and Black warriors outplayed the Vikings for forty-five minutes, they were unable to push across any counters. The fourth quarter came and it looked as if the game would end in a scoreless tie. Suddenly a Wildcat tumbled and Taber, a Valley guard, had the ball and was racing over the goal line. It came so suddenly that no one realized what hail happened. I he ikings were playing “heads-up" ball and made good the only chance they had to score. With the count against them and about twelve minutes to go, the Wildcats filled the air with passes, none of which were caught by anyone. In this game the Triple “S" line showed worlds of power both on the offense and defense. The backlield worked will but they couldn't get through the Valley line for any consistent gains. The Vikings had a good team as other games later on proved. In this game their line setmed able to do its share, but their backlield could make no worthwhile gains at all. The Vikings appeared to lack condition and were easily hurt by the smaller Wildcats. The Bute men’s deadly tackling causal Valley to take eight time outs during the contest. SCIENCE 0; MOORHEAD 0 Two years ago the Wildcats played the Moorhead Reds to a scoreless tie on their own field. The game was played on a wet slippery field. This year the Wildcats went to the Spud town to avenge last year’s deleat. Sixfyniiubut tile Beds managed to hold them to a 0 to 0 tie. This game was also played on a wet field. When the Cats went out on the field, they left the football in the gym, but Bute threw them a snow ball at the same time, uttering these words, “1 lere—use this for a ball '—and they did. The game consisted mainly of kicking and fumbling, each team appearing to be equally adept at both these phases of play. Twice during the game the Scientists had wondcrul chances to score when they recovered fumbles. Once Kddic Achter picked up a fumble and started for the goal line. A touchdown seemed certain, but the field responded noblv to the cries of the home-coming crowd, and tripped Kddic up. Kach team tried to score field goals, but neither attempt came close. Another time one of the Pcd backs mishandled the ball and Sykora got his hands on it and set out for the Crimson goal. One of his team mates blocked him prettily and stopped Frank from getting his name in the Science hall of fame. The field was so wet and muddy that the Crimson of Moorhead and the Red and Black of Science looked the same. The Wildcats, though outweighed thirty pounds or more to the man put up a game fight and gave better than they received. I he ildcat backficld did their best, but the field was not to their liking and consequently they did not get a chance to make their speed and shiftiness tell. Moorhead had a big team and a good one. I hey played a clean game and showed a good deal of power, but they were also badly handicapped by the wet field. SCIKNCK 18; MAVVIU.K 0 Mayville fell before the Wildcats’ furious onslaught in a one-sided game on the Mayville field. The game was made interesting by the officials who were a couple of years behind times on the rules. I heir numerous Srvnityarguments made the game look like a debate. However, wonderful playing by all members of the team gave them a victory over the Comets and their officials. Achtcr kicked off to Mavville and they punted after a couple ot line plays netted them nothing. . series of line plunges and end runs, by the Science backs, carried the ball to the Mavville four yard line where the ball was lost on downs. Mayviilc threatened to score, but lost the ball on an incomplete pass over the goal line. From then on the outcome ot the game was never in doubt. Walrath took the ball to the four yard line and l.unday wmt over for the Cats’ first touchdown. The most spectacular play of the game came about five seconds before the end of the first half. Mavville punted to Butcher on his twelve yard line. 1 Ie reversed the field anil with the aid of excellent interference went across for a touchdown. Late in the game Weed intercepted a Mavville pass and added six more points to the tripple “S’ total. This game marked the passing of the Mayviilc Comets from the Wildcats schedules. Lack of competent officials at Mavville has caused several misunderstandings during the past three years, but we cannot blame this directly to the school and we still remain their friendly enemies. SCILNCL 52; LLLLNDALL 0 Captains Achtir and Sykora led their cohorts on to an overwhelming victory over Lllendale on the Science field during the latter part of October. The Dusties put up a game light, but were no match for the Triple “S" ball toters. The first half of the game produced some good football and at halt time the Scientists held a 13 to 0 advantage. Johnson starred the slaughter with a touchdown soon after the second half got under way. Walrath made one, Johnson repeated and Strubcl got another to bring the count up to 32. Weed got his touchdown by intercepting a pass and going thirty yards to count. (By the way. Weed seemed to intercept quite a few passes during the 1927 season.) Then Strubcl cut loose and scored two more touchdowns to bring the score up to 52 to 0. Coach Bute gave every man on his squad a chance to show what he could do. but after the ball started rolling. Lllendale couldn’t stop it, no matter how many Science subs were playing. Lllendale put up a nice fight, but they were no match for the hardhitting Science line and the clever quartette in the Wildcat backlield. Lllendale gave all they had and didn’t give up a bit until the gun went off to end the game. They took defeat with a smile and promised to do better Stt’fnlv-oiunext time. With anv luck at all. the Dustics should have a winning team next year. The yell team got going during this game and under the leadership of King and Williams they made an unbelieveahle amount ol noise. I he town people turned out well and gave the Red and Black support which was highly appreciated. SCII'.XCK 7; JAMKSTOWN 7 The Orange and Black tangled with the Red and Black and when the t'rav was done neither team had accomplished anything as far as games won and lost were concerned. Jamestown accomplished a good deal in stopping the small but determined Wildcats. Four times during the lirst half the ildcats had the ball inside the Jimmies’ four yard line but not once could they score. The half time came with neither team having anything to show for their exertions. Seven minutes after the beginning of the second half Gussncr blocked Johnson’s punt to score Jamestown’s touchdown. I he Scientists got down to business then and started for the Jamestown goal. After warding off two would he tackles. Butcher crossed the line and ted s place kick made the game even up. I he last quarter was a mad rush for extra points. Weed intercepted a pass but was tripped and nailed while getting to his feet. Near the end of the game ced tried to place kick anti came mighty close. The ball missed the goal post by about two feet. I his was the last game the Wildcats played. The game with Park Region was cancelled due to numerous injuries on the Parkies’ squad. During the 1927 season the Wildcats won three games, were defeated once ami were held to tie scores on two different occasions. They were in a tie for second place with the Moorhead Peds at the close of the season. During the last three years the Science football teams have finished in first, second, and third places in the race for the conference gonfalon. P.vcry man did his bit to make the season a success and no one player hogged the limelight. Bute’s chargers worked together as a unit and it was this coordination that enabled the Wildcats, handicapped by lack of si e and weight as they were, to make a success of the 1927 football season. Srvrnfy-tU’O• 3 Coach Bute UJ TIIIS year Coach Bute gave Science its third championship team since taking up the duties of athletic director here four years ago. While ‘.‘Skip," as he is known to the boys, has taught his teams to “play to win” he has never sacrificed sportsmanship in order to gain a victory. I 1 is teams have been characterized by their fighting spirit and by their cleanness of play. Year by year, as the athletic teams become better acquainted with the Bute system, they rise to greater heights in every field of endeavor. Behind these continued successes of Science teams stands the spirit of Karl Bute, a coach in a million and the best little man in the state. , vE3E3E Captain Sykoka No man played more consistantlv than did "Sylec". ;i CO-leadcr and center tor the 1927 Wildcats. Captain Aciitkk "Eddie" played a wonderful jjaine at tackle this year and the coaches showed that they knew Achter was good by giving him a l rrth on the All-Conference team tor '27. C A PTAIN-1 %I.KCT H UTC11K K "Hutch" was the most elusive half-hack in conference play this season and his open held running was of the highest order. He was also accorded a place on the All-Conference team. Seventy-fourWll.HIJR LUNDAY "Wub" was (he third Scientist to he named on the All-Conference. His deadly tackling helped to make him one of the best ends in the I. C. C. Marvin Strihkl "Tuhy” hit them hard and let them lay. He played a very aggressive type of football and was always in the thick of the light. Struhel was the fourth Wildcat on the 1927 All-Conference aggregation. Allan Wked "Al’s" work this year at halfback was even better than that of last year. His defensive play was wonderful. On the offense he would also help occas sionally by ploughing through the line. Jnesting style, for a few yards. I 0 V I Srrr ity-firtJoskpii Skoviioi.t "Joe" was shifted this year from guard to end. Although he was especially good at receiving passes his defensive work was also good. W.ALTIJR I'.IDKM "Cute" came hack to the fold after a lapse of one season. 11 is work at running ends was sensational and small though he was. his opponents were never too hig for him to handle. Clifford Johnson “Johns" played fullback in a commendable style. Il«' was fast on his feet and could pass and punt along with the best of them. Srvnily-tixOrville Persons "Babe", besides being a good end. was the "Nick Altrock" of the Wildcat football team. Besides breaking up plays he busted dull care and helped to make practice as enjoyable as possible. DkI.os Williams "Big Bad Bill" was a bad egg at tackle, lie crashed through and busted tip plays in a manner wonderful to behold. Bill will be back in ’28 to help the good work along. Aktiu k Nelson With no previous experience to boast of. Art went to work and "learned himself how to play football." He did such a good job that he played several games at end and earned his football letter. I C I N« j cnty -St i i ’tGordon Can iiam "Alex" held down the other guard position in a way that pleased everyone. IIis play, while it was always steady, verged at times to the sensational. Glenn Wai.rath "Runt" started his football career at Minot but got here just in time to help the Wildcats along in their fight for the Conference gonfalon. Glenn called signals, passed and hit the line from his quarterback position. Seventy-rightBasketball Tllli 1928 basketball season marks the highest pinnacle any Science athletic team has ever readied, Under the able tutelage of Karl Bute the 1928 Wildcat basketeers went through a schedule ol lit teen games without a defeat. In doing so they annexed the Interstate Collegiate Conference title and also have a good claim lor the state title. The best game of the season came when the Scientists turned back the North Dakota State Bison in a torrid battle at the S. S. S. gym early in January by a 46 to M score. While no game was played with North Dakota University, it was not because of any reluctance on the part ol the Wildcats. In conference play the Wildcats deleated every team twice, excepting Mayvillc. Mayvillc was not on the I riplc S. schedule this season, but suffered reverses at the hands ol the teams that Science defeated decisively. In developing the team Bute combined an excellent passing attack with a tight man-to-man defense. Brewster, youthful iIdeat lorword. set a new conference record by scoring 188 points. Johnson and Achtcr also were among the first ten high point men. $f verity-nineSCI i: CK 42; PARK R KG ION 26 Inhibiting a last breaking attack that broke down the Parkic morale, the ildcats opened the 1927-28 season with an overwhelming 42-26 victory over the Park Region College, of Fergus Falls. From the time that the ildcats scored their first basket until the end of the game, there was no question as to the way it would terminate. In vain did Ciordcr, Park Region guard, dribble down and score time after time. In vain did the Parkie forwards bombard the Science goal from mid-floor. I hey were outclassed completely, and had it not been for Gordcr’s spectacular work, both on the offense and defense, the game would have been a massacre. Bute used all his squad in this game in order to get a line on their respective abilities. Brewster caged nine field goals and three free throws to lead his ildcat mates in scoring. Achtcr and Johnson were right back of him. I he Scientists made a large percentage of their shots good and their passing was above expectations for the first game of the season. The teamwork, while good, seemed to lack polish. SCIFNCF 33; MOOR I IK A I) 17 Not content wi invaded Wahpcton th the 0-0 football game at Moorhead last fall the Peds ready to do or die. I he basketball game was nearly the same, in most respects, as the football battle waged earlier in the fall. The crimson basketeers tore into the Wildcats with vim and vigor that spoke volumes of praise for their courage, but which in the end gained them nothing. Achtcr and his cohorts played a fast passing game which completely hafllecl the Peds. Moorhead was game and worked hard to stave off defeat, but they weren't quite good enough. They played a waiting game and took advantage of whatever breaks there were in their favor. The play, while fast, was very rough and players on both sides tumbled over throughout the game. Kvison, Baldwin, and Burton played a nice game for the Peds and did a good share of Moorhead’s scoring. I'he W ildcats continued their good play but were off form when it came to shooting. Part of this can be accounted for by the roughness of play. HighlySCIENCE 56; ALL STARS 22 'flic game with the All Stars was played during the Christmas vacation to give the Wildcats a little more chance to play together against good opposition, before the conference games commenced following the holidays. The All Star team was made up of former Science stars, together with men who were attending school elsewhere and who were home on their vacations. The Wildcats got going early in the game and there was no question at any time as to the issue of this contest. The All Stars played good basketball, but they did not have the teamwork. Their individual play was excellent. At the close of the game the Wildcats were leading the All Stars by a score of 56 to 22. SCIENCE 46; BISON 31 Playing the best basketball that has been seen at the Science gym for many a moon, the Wildcats outpointed the North Dakota State Bison. The game was full of thrills and the play was fast and clean. Beeson, former Breckenridge high star who joined the Science squad after the Christmas vacation, was one of the big guns for the Triple “S’ team. 1 le played brilliantly on the offense beside doing bis share to hold the thundering herd in check. McPherson. A. C. captain and center, was the main cog in the Bison offense and alter he went out on personal fouls the Scientists had things their own way. The Bison opened up and scored immediately after the game started. Lor a minute it looked as if they would have a runaway. But the Wildcats settled down to work, after they saw that while the A. C. had a good team they weren't invincible. Brewster scored heavily as did Beeson and Johnson. Captain Achter directed his team's play in a capable manner, and kept watch on McPherson. Lunday. time and again, warded off the State attack and kept them from scoring. On the whole the Wildcats play was smooth and well coordinated. hew were the had passes they made and few were the shots they missed. They were playing an uphill game for three quarters, but in the last Captain-Elrct lirrson Eiffhiy-outperiod, they broke loose and scored enough points to give them a 46-37 margin over their more experienced rivals. 1 his game demonstrated the Wildcats’ power and proved, beyond a doubt, that Science had a lighting outfit and incidentally, one of the best teams in North Dekota. SC 11'.NCI-: 50; MINOT 22 Pile Wildcats played a listless game of basketball the night they defeated the Minot Teachers 50 to 22 on the Science floor. Minot seemed content to bombard the Science basket from long range while the Wildcats in turn, had little trouble in penetrating the Beaver defense lor counters whenever they were needed. During the contest Bute used two complete teams and both of them were more than a match for the Western Pedagogues. When Minot got the ball they played around with it among themselves for a while before starting for the Wildcat basket and by that time there was a warm reception awaiting them. They made several spectacular shots from near the center of the floor, but these did not come often enough to make the game close. Conners. McDaniel and Pepke were high point men for Minot. The Minot team played a very clean game and few personal fouls were called on either team. I lowcvcr. they did not appear to rank with most of the teams of the Conference in strength. They had just won a hard game from Park Region the night before and this may account for their play here. Achtcr, I .unday. Brewster and Johnson led the Scientists in total points made. The rest of the men who played with them worked hard and deserve a large share of credit for their defensive work. SCIKNCK 36; VAI.LKY CITY 21 Valley City, sharers of the 1927 Conference title, were pretty confident that they would take the measure of the Wildcats when they met on the Viking floor, in January. In Valley City everyone was sure that the Vikings would have an easy time since they had won most of their early season games. They were due for a sad awakening The Vikings opened hostilities in an auspicious way by bagging two goals in the first forty-five Johnson Eifhly-Ju oseconds. The Wildcats called time out and talked it over. When the game was resumed things began to look better for Science. I he ildcats began popping away and the score began to mount, but the ikings weren t coming through as they had done at the beginning of the contest. Beeson, who was playing a hangup game at guard, had his knee badly wrenched and was compelled to leave the game. Schmitt took his place and carried on in the same manner that Beeson had been doing. The blue and red from along the Sheyenne weren't up to their usual form, but this docs not detract from the praise due the Scientists tor their fine work. The Vikings always have a good team and are the Wildcats deadliest and most feared rivals on the basketball court. This game gave the Butemen a decided advantage in the Conference race, as Valley City was conceded to be the big favorite for the championship. SCIENCE 29: MOORHEAD 25 The Peds nearly messed up Science’s chance for the Conference title when they played the Wildcats on the Moorhead Armory floor. I his floor was particularly suited to Moorhead's style of play. I he low ceiling kept the Scientists from bombarding the Fed basket from long range, and time and again their high shots hit the top of the Armory. I he Feds held on to the ball, rightly reasoning that the Wildcats couldn't score i! they couldn’t get hold of the ball. Now and then they would break and come through, but the Wildcats played steadily and kept them away from the baskets. The Scientists were handicapped by the loss of Beeson, and Brewster wasn’t up to his usual form because of an injured hand. Nem .ck's charges played good basketball and would have won had they been playing almost any other team, but the Scientists couldn’t give up. The Feds staged a rally near the end of the game that brought them dangerously close to the Scientist’s lead, piled up soon after the beginning of the second half. The lead, however, proved to be too large, and the Fed emerged from the fray, defeated. SCIENCE 47; ELLEN DALE 24 I lie Wildcats defeated Ellendale in a slow game at the Science gym. Bute’s proteges couldn't seem to handle the ball in their usual efficient manner and numerous fumbles were charged to them dur- Schrnift F.itfthy-thrtfing the contest. Lllendale played hard and their individual play was high class, hut they seemed to he strangers when it came to team play. The Ousties were fast and good at long shots. Their attack was confined to occasional spurts which were not frequent enough to be dangerous. Brewster was again high point man and Johnson was close behind him, Achter played a hangup game but had hard luck under the basket. Lundav and Schmitt played a steady game which was effective in keeping the Ousties away from the red and black basket. Strand, McCullough and Persons took the place of some of their teammates and the score kept piling up. Lllendale seems to be awfully unlucky in the Science gym. In the past three years they have been walloped three times by a margin of nearly 20 points each game. On their own floor they hold their opponents to much closer scores. SCILNCL 30; VALLKY CITY 28 Fighting gamely, but way off form, the Wildcats got lucky and managed to beat the Vikings by a 30-28 score on the local floor. Pile Vikings were a new team it seemed, as they were reinforced by the addition of Kckel and Burcbill. During the most of the game they held a small lead which had a bad habit of mounting at times. Valley played a clean, fast game and it looked like it was going to be bad for the Butemen, who couldn't seem to get going. With Valley holding an 8 point lead, Strand was sent into the game and he proved to be the spark that set the Scientists off. They fought determinedly from then on and soon afterwards went ahead with the count 26 to 22 in favor of the Red and Black. Valley City got hot and sunk three field goals in rapid succession, to give them a two point lead. With the finish getting dangerously close. Lunday came through with a field goal. Then Johnson went back into the game. I Ic intercepted a Valley pass near mid floor and dribbled down for a short shot that sewed the game up for the Wildcats. Lady Luck had smiled on the Wildcats. a I. mill tty Highly - "SCIENCE 36: PARK REGION 31 Park Region gave the conference teams something to think about when they battled the Wildcats almost to a standstill in the second half of the game played on the Parkie floor. I'hc tall Norsks were badly outplayed during the first half and the Red and Black went to their dressing room holding a comfortable 10 point lead. This lead proved to he the deciding factor of the game. The Preachers, led by the touslc-headed (iorder, came back with a mighty rush, after the rest period. The whole Parkie team came to life ami got going with Jensen, Ruud and (iorder doing most of the scoring. The Wildcats also got down to work and though their passing was inaccurate for the greater share of the time, they would break loose occasionally and go through for a basket or two. The defensive work of the Cats was up to par and the brilliant passing attack of the Lutherans was checked so they were never able to attain the lead. In the closing minutes of play Park Region bombarded the basket from all angles of the floor in a fruitless attempt to overcome the Scientists. But the ten point lead the Red and Black had garnered during the first half, coupled with their determined defensive work, was just a little too much for the Preachers and the Parkies had to be content with defeat. Park Region played a splendid game and while they did not accomplish what they set out to do, they came about as close to it as any other team had during the season. SCIENCE 20; JAMESTOWN IS In the raggedcst game that the Science fans had yet seen their team play, the Wildcats managed to eke out a two point win over the Jimmies. While the Jimmies were right there when it came to spunk and light, they played terrible basketball and the W ild-cats were just a little bit more off form. Out of IS chances from the free throw line the Red and Black made only four good. Their shooting from the field was about as bad as their free throw shooting. The Wildcats, in some manner, managed to gain a 13 to 10 advantage over the Orange-clad upstaters. at the half. Everyone thought that the Wildcats would make a run-awav of the second half. They didn't. Neither team was able to count even when they had chances that should have been setups. They couldn’t connect. The game ended with the score at lily-fiv?17 all. In the overtime period, Jamestown scored a free throw and for a while it looked as though that one point would sew up the game. Brewster suddenly came to the front and scored a free throw and a field basket with but 30 seconds left to play. The string of wins was still intact. The Wildcats defeated Minot in a thrilling game on the Minot Hoor by a 37 to 33 count. I bis game marked the first struggle of the Wildcats’ three-day invasion of enemy territory. This last trip was to he the crucial test and on it rested the Wildcats’ hopes for the championship. Minot didn’t seem to have much at the beginning of the game and the Wildcats quickly took the lead. They had what appeared to be a nice safe margin when Minot began to get lucky. With three minutes of the first half left, the Beavers sunk several field goals in quick succession thereby cutting the Science lead to a whisper. There was no cause to worry however because the Red and Black were playing good basketball and were capable of doing even better in their usual second-half comeback. They did come back and got going when Old Lady Luck deserted the Scientists. At least it seemed that way. In quick succession, Achter and Brewster were ejected from the game on personal fouls. The loss of either of these men would have been hard to take, but the loss of both was a blow which nearly toppled the Scientists down the ladder. The players who filled in, Strand and McCullough, came through and together with Schmitt, Lun-day and Johnson, they managed to ward off the ferocious sallies of the teachers. This contest gives added proof that the Wildcats had an eight-man team, instead of the one or two man SCIKNCK 37; MINOT 33 When Jamestown played at Wahpeton, some of players said they had “Wahpeton’s jinx’’, and so it appeared. The jinx must have escaped from them some time prior to the time the Wildcats visited Jamestown. teams that arc the general rule. Opening with the brilliant attack that had kept them on top of the Conference heap, the Wildcats showered the Jamestown basket and at the same time SCIKNCK 41 ; JAMKSTOWN 7 Eighty-sixkept the Jimmies from showering the Wildcat basket, to score an impressive 41 to 7 victory. The game was a massacre. It was the worst defeat any team has handed the Jimmies on their own floor since time immemorial. Johnson's eagle eyes were bright that night and the fleet-footed forward accounted for 15 of the Wildcats’ points . Just behind him was Brewster who managed to count 14 points. Hanged behind them were the rest of the Science team, each doing his bit to add to the Wildcats' score and the Jimmies' shame. Jamestown was no match at all lor the Wildcats, and didn't have a ghost of a chance at any time during the game. True enough, they missed what chances they did get, but even had they been at their best, it would have taken all they hail to keep the Scientists down that evening. They took the defeat in a good-natured way. The Jamestown paper expressed the sentiment of the Jimmies aptly when it remarked, “There was no one at Jamestown College last night who could lick his weight in Wildcats’’. SCIENCE 49; ELLENDALE 26 With the Conference championship already cinched, the Wildcats journeyed to Kllcndale where they finished their season with a victory. The 49 to 26 score shows the comparative power of the two teams. The Dusties were game as usual, but couldn't stop the Scientists who were fresh from victories over Jamestown and Minot. In the first half they did not reach their stride, but still managed to gain a 25 to 16 lead at hall time. In the second half, Brewster went on a rampage and his Wildcat teammates followed suit. The Dusties were unable to weather this attack and the Triple “S" men scored 24 points to Kllendale’s 10. during this stanza. Brewster added 25 points to his total, during this game and this gave him the top place in the list of individual scorers in the Conference. In this game the entire squad of eight men saw action during the contest and each did his share to keep the Wildcats on top. McCullough Eighty-sevenSCIKNCK 38; ST. JOHN’S 28 Science iliiln't know how much St. John’s had. St. John’s didn't realize how much Science had. So everybody was pleasantly surprised when the Wildcats took the Johnnies into camp with a 38 to 28 victory. I his was the last game of the 1928 season on the home lloor and it was a fitting finish to a good season. The lads from Collcgeville were a smooth working, nice appearing team. They were very business like in their play. Some of their men were high-class performers. Lowe, former Minot high star, was a speed demon and it was difficult to stop him after he once started down the lloor. Durenberger, gaunt Johnny center, played a nice game but Achter kept him from doing much damage. The game was evenly fought throughout. At no time during the contest did either team have a safe enough lead that would allow them to stall. The Wildcats seemed to be making up for their performance against Jamestown, and they were out for blood. Not once during the entire contest did they slacken. They seemed to have regained their old “vim, vigor, and vitality.” They kept up a relentless attack which netted them basket after basket. St. John’s proved to he a better offensive team than defensive. But at that, their defense was good enough to make the Wildcats work hard for their points. h.ujUty •right —yThis amc added another win to the unbroken string of victories the Wildcats have nailed up in the last two or three years. The last defeat on the home Boor came early in '26 when Jamestown triumped over the Wildcats here. Since then no team has been that good, or that lucky.

HERE THEY AREX The Bobkittens’ Season Tl 11 - Bobkittens bail a fairly successf ul season, but they were so overshadowed by the powerful Wildcats no one noticed them much. They defeated the Indian school twice, Park Region Academy once and Moorcton once. They lost t« Park Region Academy. Hope High school. Lidgcrwood High school. Campbell High school and the Indian school. 1‘ach night they practiced with or against the first team. Sometimes these scrimmages produced good basketball and the Bobkittens always gave the first team a light. The personnel of the team varied from game to game and this detracted from the effectiveness ol the Kittens play. New men. and different combinations of men were being constantly tried out in the hope of developing a good second team. I he players were veri-near equal and one combination appeared to be about as good as another. The Bobkittens opened their season against the Park Region Academy team. They had an easy time and walked away with a to victory. Maas. Kitten center, was the big gun for the second stringers, while Brady. Weed and I .ekes also did good work. I he Park Region five lacked drive ami couldn't seem to do much either on the offense or defense. The Bobkittens got away to a good lead at the start ol the contest and kept adding to it throughout the game. Ibis game was plaied on Shu the Science lloor ami was a curtain raiser lor the Wildcat-Park Region game. I he Bohkittens invaded the I . S. Indian school and took the Redskins into camp with a 21 to 19 score. I he Redskins played last and hard, but didn’t have much luck in penetrating the Bohkittens' defense, while the Science hoys went through for shots continually. The only thing that kept the score down was the fact that the Kittens didn’t make a large percentage of their shots. Johnson. Palmer, Fidcm, Persons, and Aird were some of the new men who saw action in this game. For the Indians. Abraham and Perkins were outstanding. In a preliminary game to the Wildcat-Viking struggle. I lope Nigh school got going long enough to heat the Bohkittens dO to 16. The game started off well with neither team being able to take the ball through the other s defense. Fach team scored and for a while it was a see-saw affair. But this could not continue long. I lope's offense began functioning in brilliant manner and though the Bohkittens fought valiantly, they could not stem the tide. Frequent substitutions on the part of the kittens did not aid materially in holding down the lads in white and green. They continued to pile up the score and the Bohkittens’ spurts were ineffectual I his marked the first defeat the Bohkittens suffered and it seemed to destroy their morale. I he return game with the little Parkics saw the tables reversed. J he Kittens were cold alter the ride to Fergus and seemed to be dead on their feet. Flic Parkies made the most of the Scientists' errors and before the end of the game had run up a 17 to 6 count. Needless to say, the Kittens tried hard, but they were off form. I hey couldn't pass and they couldn't shoot. If one man broke down the lloor, he would find himself all alone facing several demoniacal, diminutive preachers. The Parkies counted whenever an opportunity offered and when it didn’t, they proceeded to make an opportunity. The second game with the Indian school was also played on their floor. This game was something like the first one. only the victory was a little more decisive the second time than the first. The Kittens worked well, handled the ball nicely and played a heady game of basketball. They drew the Kagles defense into the middle of the lloor and then cut around them for close in shots. ’The Indians were unable, to get any short shots and they were not lucky enough to make many long ones. The Bohkittens used eight men. and each fitted into the general teamwork without detracting from its efficiency. In this game the Scientists demonstrated real power and drive. It seemed as though they would get going at last. A indy-f' itrI.idgerwood came to Science and defeated the Bobkittcns 25 to IS in a hectic preliminary to the St. John's-W ildcat contest. 1 he Maroons exhibited a well balanced attack and defense. I hey had some good shots and potted away from nearly any place on the floor, making them difficult to guard. The Bobkittcns were looking shabby, but occasionally would seem to take a new lease on life and would make the game interesting for a while. These spurts did not come often enough to save the cause, and I.idgerwood added another victory to her long string. The Indians came to the Science floor and found it much more to their liking. The Bobkittcns grabbed a seven point lead right off the go. but the Kaglcs kept driving away and kept cutting it down until the end. Near the end of the contest the battle waxed hot with the lead alternating several times until Perkins tossed in a long one and Abraham followed suit. Phis gave the Redskins a three point lend and a 25 to 22 victory. The Kittens played the Moorcton Independents on their floor and emerged victorious with the count 20 to IS. I his was a battle in every sense of the word. Moorcton played a driving game sweeping everything before it. But the Kittens fell back on their cavemen tactics and proved a match for the brawny Independents. The game was close throughout and the referee called four fouls. As two fouls were called on each side, it must have been a fairly refereed game. I he referee was without tear or favor and also without discrimination or discretion. Campbell tangled with the Kittens and came out on top with a 25 to 12 count. This game was played on the Campbell floor with a Camp-referee officiating. This official, while very lax. managed to make the game amusing. I Ie saw nothing and though the Kittens were smaller than the Camels they were, nevertheless, a good match for them. Someone was on the floor all the time and most of the time the players were piled up two and three deep. The referee would occasionally blow the whistle to show that he was still boss, but these interruptions were too infrequent to spoil the fun. This was the most enjoyable game the Bobkittcns had. The Bobkitcns finished their season at I.idgerwood when the Maroons edged out a 24 to 24 win. Phis game was closely fought throughout from the time the Scientists scored the first basket until they scored the last one. I.idgerwood made most of their shots while the Kittens couldn't convert set-ups with any degree of regularity. I’.ach team went by spurts and at the half, I.idgerwood held a three point lead. Phis game was witnessed by the biggest crowd of the season. Ninety-fiveAllan Weed Hermit Maas "Al" played guard this year and did a good job of it. Occasionally he helped out in the scoring too.

Maltese got off to a hail start this year, but showed determination and flight that was surprising, l-'ew of last years' team returned and nothing was done about organizing until late in January. The girls turned out and worked hard, but never had more than two practices a week. These were usually short ones. The Maltese deserve credit for the way they played the game. Although they failed to win a game, it was not through lack of endeavor. They pased well and guarded well. I here were no dead shots on the squad and so consequently they failed to tally enough to win. In the greater part of every game they completely outplayed their opponents. The girls were good sports, took defeat with a smile and kept on trying. 'They truly typified the “Science Will l ight" spirit which is characteristic ) of all Coach Bute's teams. After two practices the Maltese played the Wahpeton High school girls’ team on the Armory ffoor and were defeated 25 to 5. The Science maids weren’t able to penetrate the Wahpeton defense during the first half, while the Wops, led by Dorothy Hill, piled up a nice lead. In the second half the Science girls got going and made the game a hot affair. iHtlysrvtH They couldn't make their shots good and as a result, lost. The game was a good one. contrary to what the score would indicate. The second game was played with the Breckenridge I ligh Red Sox, on the Science lloor and the Maltese were again defeated. The Science girls played good hall all during the lirst half, hut the Red Sox managed to gain a live point lead l y half-time. In the second half the Maltese had posession of the hall most of the time and carried it into enemy territory time and again only to miss the basket. Though the shooting was inaccurate, the Maltese team showed great improvement over that displayed in the Wop contest. 'The final count was 19 to 8 in favor of Brccken ridge. The Maltese finished their season with a second defeat at the hands of the Breckenridge I ligh Red Sox. In this game the team played basketball, and they were on a par with the Red Sox throughout the game. The only thing that defeated them was their inaccuracy around the basket. They took the game away from Breckenridge right at the start, but the Red Sox made good what opportunities they had to score and finally won. Viola Kinn Viola’s play stamped her as a guard of marked ability. I 111 I. MS koSKK Helen got the tip-off from opposing ‘.enters most of the time beside playing a fast floor game.

Science fans arc confident that the Wildcats will make things tough lor the other schools at the Conference track meet which will he held this year at alley City. The Scientists have shown strength in the dashes, hurdles and runs, but no weight men or jumpers have yet shown enough ability to make them contenders in the lichl events. Sykora has been working with the discus and is rapidly gaining distance, but he yet has quite a ways to go before he can be considered as a point-getter in competition with the other six schools. I leatherton has been playing around with the shot and can put it well over 30 feet. 1 le has the si e and build ol a good weight man and should improve a great deal before the meet is held in May. Butcher is getting up higher day by day in the high jump and may be able to get high enough to wreck some one's hopes if he can keep up the good work. “Syk is also plunking the javelin through the air for over a hundred feet and lie is hound to improve, (iohrick looks good in the mile and Maas. Canham. I'.idem, seemed destined to help Johnson out in the dashes. Persons ami Williams have also done good work in the longer runs and will undoubtedly be heard from. SinflyninfJohnson Herd Track, 1927 THE 1927 track meet was held May 22 at the Moorhead State Teachers college. Seven schools of the Conference were represented and most of them brought large squads to the meet. Coach Bute took Weed and Johnson to Moorhead and between them they won 6' i points and placed third in the meet. The track was slow because of heavy rains which hail fallen shortly before the day of the meet. Johnson showed speed enough to eclipse the Conference records in the 440 and 220 yard dashes. In winning the 440. he defeated Grey, of Jamestown, who had never been defeated at this distance. Weed and Schaumhcrg had a nip and tuck battle in both the mile and half mile events. The terrific pace they set drew them away from the other runners. Weed set the pace for the first event, but Schaumhcrg had his way in the half mile—his final dashes netting him first place and Weed second. Allan was forced to take two steps to Schaumhcrg's one in order to keep up the pace set. Johnson also tied for third place in the high jump, but lost the toss for the medal.

Ont Hun,ire,I QnfTennis T1 IK most popular place on the campus during the spring term is the tennis court. Deserted may he the classrooms, and deserted may he the gym. hut the tennis court is continually thronged with would-be Tildents and WiUses. Last year Science did not enter a team in the Conference tournament because of conflicting dates. This year the outlook for a good team appears to he fair. King, Kckcs. Kidem and Aird appear to he the best among the men. All of these men play a good game, although none are experienced players and they have off days during which they don’t look so good. It is too early to tell the real strength of these men on the court. No doubt they will live up to the Science standards if they get a chance to play Conference foes. King plays a hard driving game; Kckcs places well and drives hard; Kidem plays a steady, consistent placement game while Aird mixes them up. All in all there is some good material for an excellent tennis team if it gets coaching and practice. The girls look good and while most of them are fairly new at the game they are improving rapidly with time and practice. The best tennis players among the women are Margaret Thomas, the Kinn twins. Bernard and Wolf. These girls play a slower and steadier game than the hoys do. Thomas and L. Kinn drive hard and keep their opponents back around the base line, while V. Kinn, Bernard and Wolf have an easier style of play and take advantage of their opponents' blunders. Kacli year a school tournament is held and the men and women's singles champions are chosen by elimination. This tournament is (juite popular with the students and there are usually a large number of entries. An elimination tournament, sponsored by the Koyal Typewriter company, who is awarding a miniature key, will take place late in May. Onr it nil ml TiroBaseball, 1928 TIIIS year the sports were shifted around so that Arnold Strand managed the baseball team. Weed and Johnson had charge of track work and Captain-elect Butcher supervised spring football. Coach Bute gave some of his time to each of the sports and supervised all of them. The outlook for a good baseball team is unusually bright with an abundance of promising material in sight. Several lettermen have returned while new men have shown up excellently in the workouts which have been held up to date. I'he pitching anil catching jobs have lured many candidates. Charley Patterson and Bill 1 leatherton look good on the mound, while Kckes. Gohriek and Strand show up well behind the bat. I idem. Williams. Summerville. Skovholt, Trembly, Nelson. Weed, Johnson, Brave, and 1 lard on are trying out for inliehl positions while Sykora, Airtl, Persons. Brady. King. I.ueck, Burke. Lowe, and Maas are working hard for berths in the outlicld. This is the best turnout baseball has drawn for several years and things appear bright for an unusually good season. (iames have been scheduled with Jamestown. Valley City and Mav-ville. I liese teams are reported to be the best in years so perhaps it’s a good thing that the Wildcats are showing up well.

I'. K. Diehl. Onr IIiniilrfil VrA Visit to the Trades Building Tl IIS year marked the beginning of a new era for the trades department at Science. The opening of the new $65,000 trades building is a symbol of the progress Science school has made in the lie Id ol vocational instruction. This opening came at a time when the winter term students were coming in and demanding larger shops and more materials. The building itself is. as I)r. Prosser said, “one ol the best ol its kind in the United States," and Science holds it as a tribute to Dean Babcock through whose recommendation and efforts the trades department of our school was established. The largest enrollment in the trades school is, naturally, during the winter term. Then it is that the printing presses and linotype machines hum continually during the day turning out the Pica, posters, ads, and various kinds of student work. Auto mechanics are busy tearing apart engines, differentials, and transmissions, inspecting the various parts, receiving instruction, putting the parts back together again. When this is completed the instructor rechecks the work, either giving his O. K. or pointing out the defects to the student. Klectricians arc engaged in hooking up lighting connections, getting shocks, winding armatures, testing batteries, wiring houses, or climbing telephone poles hooking up transformers or repairing wires. 11 their desire leads them into the study of radio they are found hooking up sets and tuning in on the dance orchestras all over the country. I his is one nice thing about the study of radio. In another room we liiul students busy drawing lines, erasing them, redrawing them again; or, they may be computing ligures involving all kinds of mathematical manipulation of ligures. These are the drafting and estimating students. The plumbers are at work soldering joints ami wiping tlum, fitting pipes and testing their connections. In another room we find the bricklayers busy on walls, chimneys, and fireplaces. At the time of this writing they have just completed a miniature house complete in all details of their department. Besides the actual trade work there are also many mathematics classes during the day. These are especially for the electrical students whose vocation demands a much more thorough understanding ol mathematics than does any of the other trades. We will travel through the trades school watching each department carry on its work. We will see a world of industry turning over the great wheels of accomplishment. Mach day the men and women (as in Long- (Jin IIinnlml Sixfellow's “Village Blacksmith") embark on the sea of practical experience and emerge each night confident and houyant in hopes of applying the the knowledge they have acquired (.luring the day. They are filled with the spirit of “doing" and will go far in furthering the industrial fields into which they are to enter. KU'.CTRICAL 1)1 IWRTMl'.N'I Mr. Barnard has developed this department from one struggling for existance to the largest trades department in the school. The enrolment in the electrical department increases every year, which is a perfect tribute to his untiring efforts. It might be said that this department is one of the trades school's greatest assets and drawing cards. 1 herefore in our trip through Science's “little world of industry" we shall first visit the electrical department. This is located on the second floor of the new building. I pon entering the armature shop we find men at work rewinding armatures, wiring switch-boards and repairing motors. 1 best- are intensely interesting and painstaking jobs. Many concerns and individuals in the community bring their armatures and motors to our electrical department to have them repaired. These furnish the material lor our students and as the instructors inspect all the work before it is turned out ol the shop the people are assured of an okayed job. Our lliniiliiii Sr fenPassing from this room to the inside-wiring room we become immediately interested in what is going on. Kaclt two students have been assigned a “house’ and are busy wiring it. This work holds much lascina-tion for the electrical men because l its practicability. I I ere someone is hanging a chandelier, another is hooking up a porch light, and still another is putting in wall sockets. Besides the actual trade work the students in the electrical department have mathematics classes wherein they learn the how and why of electricity. To an outsider such an inscription as “K equals IK ” is meaningless, but to the electrical student it is the fundamental law of electricity by which he works. Science is especially fortunate in obtaining such able instructors as it has. Being highly prolicient in their respective vocations they can better instruct and aid the novice, as the student is when he first enters the class room. During the three or live months—as the student’s course may he—he starts out rather in a haze as to what it is all about, but before bis course is over he has an understanding of electricity, has confidence in himself and is eager to go forward with his work. I he electricians this year are to be highly commended for the work they have done in laying the conduits in the new trades building. This work was done entirely by Science electrical students in a thorough and complete manner and at a great saving to the state. This work gate the men a wealth of practical knowledge that will prove unsurpassable. Klec- ()nf UunArnl F.itjhltrical students arc daily called upon to repair work about the campus. ()nc of their jobs early in the year was to install a new electric toaster in the dormitory, lay the wires and hook up the switches. Many ol’ last year's students left in June to accept jobs all over the state as metermen or general electricians. The members of this year's group are certain to lind positions waiting for them when they complete their training at Science. I K I NTIN(i This department probably leaves the deepest impression upon the mind ol the visitor of any of the trades courses. It is the only sell-paying department of the trades school and occupies the entire west wing ol the new building. I he variation »I sounds caused by movements ol revolving wheels, the steady rumble ol the presses and the clicking ol the linotypes. immediately set us conscious of the air ol accomplishment that pervades the shop. I lerc, at a glance, we can sec every step the student goes through during his period of acquiring skill in the printing vocation. We lirst inspect the press. It is from this that the Small Pica comes into existancc each week, the catalog that is printed each spring, and tins book. The Agawasic, which is really their masterpiece and which lor the last three vears has been printed in our own department. I hese three jobs do more to advertise the school and especially the printing department than any other feature. The Pica now has a circulation ol approx- Onf 111:nilrnl :n ■imatclv 2500 which wc believe is the largest circulation of any paper from a school in our division. On the west side wc see the students setting up job work, such as posters, ads, weekly convocation programs, forms used in trade and commercial courses, invitations and announcements. Several new series ol type have been added this year which give the students basic familiarity with the various styles of type. After setting up the “assignments" they run them off on the job presses. This part of the printing department is under the supervision of Mr. Satterlee whose many years of practical experience, coupled with his six years of service as head of Science’s printing elpartmcnt. ranks him as one of the most capable of instructors in his vocation. We now pass into the linotype room. This part of the trade is under the instruction of Mr. Condit. This is his lirst year as full-time instructor at Science, but previous to this lie has been part-time instructor of mechanics for four winter terms at Science. I lere the students lirst learn the linotype keyboard by practicing on what is known as a “dummy keyboard." After they become familiar with the location of the keys they are advanced to the “live" machines, where the Small Pica, Bulletin, Agawasie and other publications of the school are set in type. Our new shop is a wonderful improvement over the old shop in the main building—but no more wonderful than the growth ol the printing (fur II uiuli n! Trndepartment itsell. Science is not only proud of her new. spacious shop, but ol the type of students enrolled in this trade. This department has furnished Science with an unusual amount of talent this year. Chestney is a member l our school orchestra, editor of the Small Pica. Carnival manager, and a member of the Agawasic Staff. Strand was a member of our undefeated conference basketball champions, (iohrick has been traveling about the state whipping the boxers in his weight division. "There are a number of other members of this department who have added to Science's activities. Ben Brave, a full-blooded Sioux Indian, an especially talented editorial writer, has brought much fame to himself and to the school this year through his personal demonstration to the answer of the question: “What Is to Become of the American Indian? . |)KATTIN(i AND KSTIMATIN i “I p a little more. Now down some. Over to the right. There." Mere are men using the surveyor's compass. Others are bending over their desks making drafts, drawing plans, and ma. ], ..g the Arabic figures endeavoring to arrive at estimates. Our visitors must keep in mind that a carpenter is not the only one whose labor is employed when we set out to build a house. I'irst of all there are plans to be drawn and submitted for approval. Then we must have an estimate of how much the whole thing is to cost us: how much more or less it would cost if we were to change our plans a little. Then after we decide upon the On? Hun,he,I Elrx'cnplan there are the various plans to he drawn for the workmen and submitted. These must all he perfectly accurate at all times. We do not wonder that the men are wholly taken up with their work when we enter. Mr. Anderson, the instructor in the drafting and estimating department, moves from desk to desk approving, correcting, and explaining the work to the men. I'.acli has individual attention. After making his drawing, the student starts calculating the price of construction. Thus we see him conceive the idea, draw the picture, make the plans, and estimate the price of construction of various types of buildings, large or small, with that same consistant accuracy. Very few really appreciate the value of this department because they do not stop to think just how important a role these men play in the great program of construction that sweeps over the country. More men enroll for this work every year at Science. That is ample proof of its importance in the business world. AL'TO-.MKCI IAN ICS f'iiibw arrive, during the course of our journey, at the department where nun are at work repairing that machine that is continually threatening the life of the pedestrian—the automobile. During the winter term this is a very busy place. To adequately take care of the students this department is divided into two parts, the actual garage where men work on cars under the supervision of Mr. Smith, and the machine shop, which is under Mr. I Icmrner. Om I (unit'll Tut IvrLveryonc runs a car but very lew can li one when something goes wrong. 1 lie world is hill ol "would-be mechanics" and we appreciate linding one once in a while who can tell us what is the matter with our machine when we take it to him. Science realizes the need ol men with a true understanding ol the mechanism ol an automobile, and this department lias its course so planned that the men can acquire during their course a thorough understanding ol the branches ol auto mechanics which thev desire to know. Local car owners often send their cars to the department to he overhauled or repaired. Besides these. Science has obtained some machines lor the students to practice on. The men do this work free of charge because of the experience it gives them. 'The work is gone over bv the department supervisor and recheckeel. thus giving it an . K. belorc the car is released. We would like to remain in this department and get pointers on what to do with our machine when it refuses to go hut we must continue on in our journey. RADIO This is the second birtlnlax ol our radio department. Last vear a number of the electrical sMidcnls desired instruction in this field and the course was introduced at that time. Mr. I anberg. an electrical student at Science, is in charge ol the department this year. Radio is now one ol the loremost subjects ol the day and in this de- Onr HurJreJ Thirteenarc always in contact with the rest of the world. At all times of the day a student can tune in his set to some station and continue his labors to the strains of some hot orchestra while the students of other departments arc laboriously toiling under the instructors’ piercing glances. But all is not concerts in the department either, for the students are there to gain knowledge ami many are the hours spent bending over the set hooking up condensers, couplers, tubes and battery connections. I hen too. there is that abominable thing called static to be eliminated. Students are always seeking new means ol doing away with static and it tin-day ever comes to one of our worthy students whin be can lind some means of continuously eliminating those unbearable sounds be will In-ranked with I'.dison in the field of electrical accomplishments. PLUMBING To reach this department we must go over to the old trades building. I lere we find men at work caulking pipe, cutting, fitting and soldering joints. Like the electrical students the plumbers have their “houses which they eijuip with till the fixtures of their trade. Some are studying plans while others are busily engaged installing faucets, sinks, hath tubs, etc. We note the business-like atmosphere that prevails and would like to spend hours watching each student as he installs each fixture. ( in II mull ill I' in In'llI lie plumbing department lias been continually called upon ilii year by the Wahpoton Plumbing and I leating Company. Inc., lor men to accept temporary positions with them and do plumbing jobs in Wahpeton and in the surrounding community. )ur plumbing students have been able to take advantage o! these opportunities to appl themselves and the grade ol their work has been highly commended by their emplovers. Science is always on the lookout for such openings lor its students and this year the plumbing department lias answered many calls. KKICKI.AYINC Leaving the plumbing department our journej. leads us to the bricklaying room. This is a spacious room occupying a newly built addition to the old trades building. Mere we lind Mr. Svenneby instructing bis students in the various diversions ol the bricklaying vocation. The class usually works as a body and go about their work much as a bricklaying crew working on a job. I bis creates a line spirit ol cooperation among the lellows and is helplul to both the instructor and the students. On this particular day we are very fortunate in limling the men at work on a house. Some are building the walls, while a lew others are setting window sills. A ten loot lireplace is being erected within the walls of the building, while oil to one side a cbimnex is last nearing completion. Many such houses are built during the school term and each time On i I Inn,hid I if tit ntile students are pu;: to work erecting a different part of the house. This gives them experience in each individual Held of the trade. Among the other activities o! this department are the building nl foundations for buildings and silos, buildmg cisterns, and catch basins. Thus the student starts by learning how to mix mortar and finishes his course a certified bricklayer. Bricklayers now command a very high salary for their work. This sign lies the importance of their vocation. Science strives not to turn out as many bricklayers as possible, hut efficient workmen, capable of accepting a job and holding if—men who will he builders of permanent nr mor-ials—emblems of their workmanship. si ; WING We arc now ready to make the last lap of our journey through Science’s “little world of industry.” We now go over to Burch I I a 11 where the domestic science department is found. I lerc Miss I'orkncr is teaching her classes the arts of dressmaking. I his course is so built up that students can take it for either high school, junior college, or trade credits, his is the only totally feminine class on the campus. The “fairer sex” are instructed in all the departments ol designing, sewing and dressmaking in this class. Starting out by doing little odds and ends they finish their course planning, designing and completing the larger products of their art. I lere they arc allowed to make clothes lor ( hn If mull ill Sixtrfiithemselves ;iikI often local housewives bring up jobs to be done. In this way the students receive the lineal ol irainmg and a little financial compensation lor their labor. Among the other accomplishments is the art ol hemstitching. This puts the linishing touches on a great deal of articles today ami is a decidcdlv useful leature for all dressmakers. Who knows but that the girls we see working here now may someday be the fashion designers of the world. We see them today as students— perhaps next time we meet they will be the leaders in the dressmaking trade—or competent housewives. I hus our journey thru Science s “little world or industry-’ comes to an end. We have gone from department to department watching men and women working diligently, striving to make themselves lit to enter the business world not as a mere cog in the machine, but as prominent factors in the directing of the course of the machine. We did not go from city to city—merely from building to building and class to class. Our journey cost us nothing but we have seen much that broadens our scope ol knowledge as to just how the trades departments m;et every obstacle that confronts the tradesman and how he is taught to meet and overcome it. Science is always turning out men who are to be builders and you have just setn the process through which it takes students from the novice to the expert.

And that is one of the reasons why we pay so much attention to the quality of goods we sell. It is so easy to skimp on a lining, or substitute infenor leather in the inner sole of a shoe. But then we would not be running an honest business, and it would gradually crumble to ruin. Selling honest merchandise at a fair price is more than an ideal with us.
