The general decorative theme of this hook suggests the famous Bad Lands. Division page pictures, procured through the courtesy of numerous friends, represent forms of activity, at present or formerly representative of North Dakota.
To all whose assistance and encouragement have helped to complete the 1930 Agawasie, the Staff expresses deep gratitude. We have tried to make the hook a record which each subscriber will take tic-light in reviewing. We hope that, through years to come, the Agawasie will serve to strengthen pleasant memories.Cir.JigK
Edi'torThe River Flows North
III! RLD River Hows north, calm and tranquil beneath the overhanging trees. Although we live so near it we seldom stop to consider the important part it has played in the history of this section. Along the west side of Lake Traverse there is a region where the waters hesitate, undecided whether to How north or south. Dividing at last, some of them find their way to the Mississippi, thence to the Gulf; the others How northward and join the Red River, to finally reach Hudson Bay.
At Breckenridge, Minnesota across the river from Wahpeton, the Red River of the North arises from the union of the Otter Tail and the Bois-de-Sioux. From Wahpeton to its mouth at Lake Winnipeg a distance of more than 186 miles, the Red River Hows almost due north, forming the boundary between North Dakota and Minnesota. Throughout its course it is navigable to small crafts.
The explorers and early settlers of this region found the Red River a natural highway which they could follow with comparitiv'e ease. To a great extent we owe the present development of this section to the river which provided the only course of transportation into the territory and was responsible for the carrying on of trade among those hardy pioneers who settled along its course. Fur trading posts had existed for years but in 1812 the Scotch Lari of Selkirk, by sending a group of people to Pembina, started the first settlement.
In the early days the red river cart, a rude, unpainted, two-wheeled vehicle drawn by a single pony or ox. was the common traveling conveyance. First used by individuals, it came to be commercially adapted in 1844, with the result that hundreds of carts united to form creaking, jolting trains which carried goods down the Red River Trail to the Mississippi. When this trade was at its height, about 6.000 carts participated.
From 1857 until the coming of the railroads, steamboats were used on the river but their importance rapidly declined thereafter, although throughout the remainder of the territorial period small boats and barges continued to be used for shipping of products such as wheat and lumber.c'North Dakota State School of Science

TO THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY:
It is indeed a pleasure to congratulate the student body of 1929-30 through the pages of the student annual, the Agawasie.
This has been indeed an unusually successful school year; the largest in the history of the institution. It has been one that has tried the facilities of the school and tested the capacity of the instructors. Practically every member of the faculty of this school has been required to do many things out of the ordinary and under rather trying conditions due to this increase of twenty-five percent in the student body.
This additional burden and inconvenience has been borne without grumbling and with a spirit of real co-operation.
The unusual increase in the number of students has brought about many problems for the student body and they have certainly responded with a wonderful spirit.
I am indeed pleased to be allowed the privilege of a page in the Annual to congratulate the student body and to express my appreciation of the co-operation on the part of the student body and faculty during this year.
Yours very truly,The State Board of cAdministration_
'Ipiii: State Board of Administration ex x ercises supervision and control over the activities of all higher educational activities in North Dakota. In 1922 the Board approved the plan of operation now in effect at the Science School. To the perfecting of this plan the Board has continually given encouragement and sup port; and, therefore, it is to them, in large measure, that we owe the present success of our school and the solid basis which promises so well for its future.J. li.

‘The Bad Lands of North Dakotai_
111 MOST picturesque spot in North Dakota is the Bad Lands, rising abruptly out of the level, seemingly unending, plains.
Daily French travelers called this region “Bad lands to travel through,” for they ditl, indeed prove to be bad to travel through, and the name has remained.
I he Bad Lands along the Little Missouri arc confined to a tract only ten to twenty miles wide and about two hundred or more miles along that river. Here river bluffs and buttes, often four or five hundred feet high, reveal horizontal layers of many beautifully colored clays and shales, alternating with bands of sandstones and often with black beds of coal. In the region south of Mcdora, where the slow burning of coal beds has baked the adjacent layers, the strata arc are often brilliantly colored in many tints of reds and yellows, with great masses of scoria, or natural brick appear in many places. Some of these gray faced, red topped buttes are interspersed with small level bottoms clothed in the silver colored, sweet smelling sage brush which attract many a traveler. The buttes, when not wholly naked, arc covered on their north sides, at least, with grass and sometimes trees, while the sunward-turned slopes are more precipitous and often aggressively sterile. When not capped with stone, buttes arc often conical or pyramidal: they erode rapidly, and arc barren and look like huge stalagmites.
Hie Burning Coal Mine is a thing of interest to all travelers. The coal vein has been burning for over fifty years and is stdl burning. Some places the burning coal can be seen red hot: other places white hot. It is possible and very often done, for a person to bake potatoes, pop corn, or do any kind of cooking on the ground because of its intense heat. Any person seeing this mine at night will surely be a supporter for the campaign to “Sec North Dako‘:t hirst."
For a long time North Dakotans have cherished the hope that the Bad Lands, one of the most amazing and interesting results of nature's vagaries, will be taken under the protecting wing of Uncle Sam as a national park. Surely if Uncle Sam finds funds to maintain national parks in other states, North Dakota should not be discriminated against, for the avoidance of the maintenance burden would amount to discrimination.rsi

v y CapturedSacajawea
NK Ol the most interesting stories in the history of our state is that of the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804. This party was sent out by President Jefferson to trace the Missouri river to its source, cross the Bad Lands and follow the best water communication to the Pacific Ocean. The flag hoisted over their winter camp, Port Mandan, on December 25, 1804, was probably the first American Hag to Hoat in North Dakota. It was during this winter encampment that Sacajawca and her husband, Touissant Charbonncau. a Frcnch-Canadian, joined the party. This Indian wife, bv birth a Shoshone of Wyoming Territory, was captured from her people when ten years of age, while they were in camp near Three Forks, Mont., by a party of Gros-Ventre, reared and named by them. Because of her devotion to her husband, she had confidence in the white men. who were making their way to the land of her birth, and with much eagerness urged that her presence in the camp with her child would be a means of protection to them, and her ability to talk with the mountain Indian a real help. She proved to be a good guide and after the wonderful journey to the Pacific Ocean was accomplished, she returned with the explorers over the same course, which has since been chosen by one of the transcontinental railroads as the shortest route to the coast. She remained in the Man-dan villages until 18.37 and then returned to her own tribe, at that time located in the Wind River country, Wyoming, and lived there until her death, April 8. 1884, at the Shoshone Mission.
The bronze statue of Sacajawca at Bismarck was designed by Leonard Cruncllc of Chicago, is of heroic size, twelve feet in height. The artist sketched the figure and costume at the Indian reservation at Klbowoods, N. D., where it was inspected and criticized in its early stages, and won the approbation of the Indians living there.
It was presented to the state on October 13, 1910 by the Federated Club Women and School Children of North Dakota.Pathfinder

Till ’. Junior College Club, one of Science’s biggest organizations, lias had a most successful year, both socially and educationally. The club was organized late last year under Mr. McMillans direction with the dual purpose of promoting among its members a closer friendship and a better understanding of those essentials which go into the makeup of a truly successful college student.
Membership in the club necessiated that the student be taking three or more Junior College subjects. The club met once a month and had very good and well attended meetings. Immediately after the programs were ended the floor was cleared and the rest of the evening spent in dancing. Refreshments were served to top off an evening of good wholesome fun.
The Junior College sponsored the nicest affair of the school year in the form of a formal banuqet and dance and concluded their activities for the season with an outing at the lake.
The officers of the club are Vernon Petty, president; I lazcllc Sampson, vice-president; Doris Stock, secretary and Roger Furhur, treasurer.
I laving gone through such a successful year the club is expected to he foremost among the social organizations of next year.Science Club
Tl IIS club was re-organized this year after a lapse of several years, with the purpose of fostering greater interest in the sciences and uniting the students through social functions. Students eligible to this club are those taking one or more of the sciences, Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Geology.
The Science club held its meetings once a month. Meetings were always well attended because interesting programs were given each time. These programs were varied, consisting of scientific discussions and talks and some musical numbers, given by members of the club, hollowing the business meeting and program, the remainder of the evening was spent in dancing.
William Denk used very good judgment in selecting refreshment committees, as all the members of the club will tell you.
The officers of the club were: William Dcnk, president; Claude Freeman, vice-president; Thomas McIntyre, secretary; Agnes Prihoda, treasurer; and Marvin Dchn, sargeanr-at-arms. Mr. W. |. Cavanaugh, one of our science instructors, acted as the adviser of this club.Electrical Club
T1IK Electrical Club has always been one of Science's most active clubs and was just that this year. Those having a membership in this club were students taking some electrical work. The Klcctrical Club met once a month, always having interesting and entertaining meetings and drawing a record attendance.
From any standpoint, educational or social, this club has had a very successful year. And did those electricians throw the good parties? Well, just ask anyone who was there.
The purpose of this club was to keep its members well posted on the modern advances of electricity and with this idea ever uppermost in their thoughts while planning their programs, they presented very good and educational entertainment.
'Ehis year’s Electrical Club officers were: Clarence Anderson, president; Alvin Stayton, secretary-treasurer; Arthur I hum, assistant secretary-treasurer; Shephard Jones, bouncer.
Mr. Hen Barnard and Mr. Carl Larsson acted as faculty advisers to this club,Mechanics Club
Till'! Mechanics Club has always been one of Science’s most active clubs and again this year, holds that place. This club was organized under the supervision of Instructors John Ness, Art Sampson and Karl Smith. Students taking Aviation, Auto-Mechanics, Bricklaying, Plumbing and Drafting and Estimating, arc eligible to this organization.
The Mechanics met once a month in the Gymnasium, where they conducted very successful meetings. Their business meetings were always followed by a “real time.” The boys got a real wallop out of boxing, pole-boxing, wrestling, basketball and all the rest of the “parlor pastimes.” After getting their training there some of the fellows performed at the basketball games.
Of course, John Ness and Art Sampson were there to preserve the dignity of the club at all times.
Following all this sort of strenuous entertainment, men must eat and they did, after all their meetings.
It takes good officers to run a club the way this one has beer, run and the mechanics owe them thanks for their effort. The officers were Bernard McConvillc, president: Howard Baker, vice-president.The Matrix Club
TIJK Matrix Club was first organized last year under the direction of Instructor H. B. Satterlcc, who re-organized the club this year. The idea of fostering greater interest in printing and journalism was the basis of their organization.
Members of this club met twice a month, holding one business meeting and one social meeting. Their programs were made up of discussions and talks on all phases of printing and journalism.
Students of printing and journalism were eligible to this club. II. B. Satterlcc, V. Currie and K. H. McMahon, instructors in printing and journalism, who acted as advisers this year, are honorary members of this society for life.
The success of this club is due greatly to the excellent leadership of its officers, Spencer Bro 4old. president; Orville Persons, vice-president; anti Marion LaBelle, secretary-treasurer.French Club
TI HS year the French Club, being composed of members of the French I, II and III classes, showed a marked increase in numbers.
Meetings of the French Club were held once a month at the home of a member or in the club room. All the efforts and talents of the troupe were called into play in effecting these educational and enjoyable meetings. Interest and enjoyment were displayed from the time La Presidcntc said “La Seance est ouwerte.” until everyone was laughing and saying “Donnez-moc Lc Chateau s’il vous plait, mademoiselle.’’
Members of this year’s club will no doubt remember the talent disclosed in the dramatization of Le Cendrillon, a French
This year’s officers were: Leona Holthusen, president; Kva Orcutt, treasurer; Harriet Divet, vice-president; and Lucile I latch secretary. The club was very efficiently sponsored by Madame lladcr.The Rifle Club
Till ’ Rilie Club was organized after Christmas under the direction of Mr. V. J. Cavanaugh and Mr. J. C. McMillan, who are great rifle enthusiasts.
We really wouldn’t want any of the members to hear about this but the reason for organizing the Rifle Club was to keep them from shooting holes in the water pipes and nicking the cement in the basement of the Trades Building. It was cheaper to furnish targets for these hot-shots.
All the Nelsons, Joneses, Smiths, and the rest of the small change joined forces and prevailed upon President Riley to let them set up a Rifle Range in the basement of the Trades Building.
The Rille Club met every Monday after school to “shoot things up a bit." The first Monday people were quite alarmed at seeing these maniacs running loose on the campus with guns slung over their shoulders but they got used to it.
This club turned out some very good shots and if you don't he lieve it. just let Ralph Jones, Kllis Jones or Agnes Prihoda take a shot at you.
The officers of the Rifle Club were Allan Christenson, president; Agnes Prihoda, vice-president; and Prank Frye, secretary t reasurer.
For its short duration, the Rille Club made quite a record and we hope that it gets an early start next year.Sacajawea Club
T1IK Sacajawea Girls Club was organized last year under the direction of Miss Ruth Reinhardt and was taken over and skillfully carried on by Vera Petersen, the Dean of Women. To the girls at the Science School, this club provides an excellent means of making acquaintances and also in gaining educational and social advantages.
During the year, the activities were arranged in accordance with the seasons, such as teas, dancing parties, hikes. Girls’ Kid party and what have you?
The Science Girls’ Kill Party was the main event of the year as every one will tell you. Kven some of the boys will tell you that, even though “getting in on it” is rather painful and hard on the trousers.
Gretchcn Cox acted as the president of this organization and Kva Orcutt was the secretary-treasurer. They were assisted by the following cabinet: Merle DeVan, Junior College, llildcgardc Dietz, Commercial, Alice Matuska, Trades, Kdythe Wold, 1 Iigh School, Marie Lconhardt, Town Girls’ representative, Adelaide Dufelmcicr, Dormitory Girls' representative and Mildred I lager, representative of the girls who board and room in town.“S” Club
SCIKNCK “S" Club lias in its membership students who have participated in athletics to the extent ol earning the letter “S.” The letter is symbolical of the highest honor awarded to the men who have played the required amount of time in intercollegiate games.
Its aim was to foster better athletics and greater ties of friendship among the players.
'I'lic “S” Club is re-organized each year by Coach hail Bute, who is proud of this, the oldest and one of the most active clubs at the State School of Science.
Members of the Club this year are: Karl Bute, honorary member and adviser, “Bud” Beeson, president, George Brewster, secretary-treasurer, Art Nelson, harry Fischer, Kddie Johnson, Merton Brady, “Babe" Persons, Marvin Dchn, I lecnan Summerville, Kcrmit Maas, Marvin 1 lausauer, Sheridan McIntyre, Krwin Frankc and 1 Iarmon hbeltoft.c
TIIIS Sextet is another of Science’s musical organizations that gained much favorable commendation whenever it appeared on a program.
The Boys' Sextet was organized and directed by Mrs. H. II. Blister, who this year directed music at the State School of Science. She found the boys a line group to work with, not only because they enjoyed it but also because they had good voices and previous training which enabled them to advance rapidly.
They were asked all through the year to sing at various entertainments. They sang at assembly programs and at many school activities as well as on programs in Wahpcton and out-of-town.
I'lle boys met regularly every Monday night for practice and met at Mrs. Blister's home at other times convenient to all of them.
Members of the Sextet were Alvin Olson and James 1 I i 11, tenor, Larncy Starin and Kdward Nelson, second tenor and La Verne Ottis and Harold Thompson, bass.The Orchestra
OUR Science School orchestra has always been a favorite on assembly programs and has called forth much deserved praise wherever and whenever it has been featured. We have a suspicion that Mr. Masica. the director, made a very thorough search for new “finds” because he surely did assemble a quantity as well as an excellent quality of talent in a hurry.
The personnel of the orchctra is larger this year than ever before. In the violin section there arc Peter V. Masica, director: Harold Thompson, and Michael Schcller; and the cornet section. Carol Stagcburg. Alvin Olson and Swan Peterson. The saxaphonc players were Klmo Nickisch and Clarence I Icrr. Ill wood Thomason anil El wood Finger played clarinets; Lyle White, llute; Ralph Trom, Sylvester Schaefer, trombones; Maxine Soudcr, drums, and Bertha Lcathart and Larncy Starin, piano.
Members who played in the orchestra all winter received a letter “S” with a lyre inscribed upon it.Girls Sextet
THIS State School of Science has many musical organizations this year and can indeed be proud of them because organizations like these are an asset to every school.
One of these groups of which the school is very proud is the Girls’ Sextet. It was organized and directed this year by Mrs. H. I I. Plistcr. The girls who sang in the Sextet were Klizabeth korf and Maxine Sander, sopranos; Agnes Prihoda and Leona Hoi-tluiseii, second sopranos; and Rosella Bernard and Grctchcn Cox, altos. •
Phe Sextet was requested to appear on many programs and they always accepted, having many clever numbers ready to sing when called upon. The warblers entertained the Science students at assembly programs and at school activities. They sang out of town at Kiwanis Club meetings, P. T. A. meetings and in Wahpc-ton at the Rotary Club and several Women’s club meetings.
One class period a week was used for practice, and the girls rehearsed as often as they could arrange at Mrs. Poster’s home.
Mrs. Plistcr deserves very much credit for the sextet she “turned out ’ and we hope that one is organized every year at Science.The Oratorical Club
T1 Hi Oratorical dub is one of short duration, being organized each spring term. The members arc students who are taking a course in Public Speaking and who all take part in an oratorical contest at the end of the course.
Members entering the oratorical division arc required to write and mcmori .c their own composition while those entering the declamatory division must mcmori .c and deliver a declamation. A medal is awarded in each event to the one judged the best.
The members of the oratorical club this year arc Florence Ras-sier, Agnes Prihoda, Grctchen Cox. Leona Holthuscn, I)e Verne Roscndahl, Kdward Nelson, Merton Brady, Roger Furbur, Maris Beeson, La man Morey and Orville Persons.Commerce Club
SC1KNCF. School has been able to boast of an up-and-coming Commerce Club every year and it is an accepted belief that it improves with age. This year's club has had a very successful year, perhaps due to the increased number of good students taking some phase of commercial work.
The Commerce Club in arranging its programs always had a definite purpose in mind: That of making their meetings educational and interesting as well as socially enjoyable, thus creating a spirit of friendliness among the members.
Several very successful parties were given by the club this year. 'The evenings of fun began with good programs, after which everyone danced to music furnished by the Science Collegians.
And when the eats committee hollered “Soup’s On” the real satisfying part of the evening’s enjoyment began.
The club owes a great part of its success to its efficient officers and advisers who arc: George Bracken, president, Percy Rudlang, vice president; Hazcllc Sampson, secretary; Horace Lahrcn, treasurer; Howard Dawson, sargeant-at-arms; Leola Kinn, publicity agent. The faculty advisers were Peter V. Masica, Grace Madden and Alice Walton, instructors in the Commercial department.The Home Economics Club
Tl IK 1 lomc Economics Club was organized under the guidance of Miss Donna Korkner, the Momc Economics instructor, file members of this club were students taking cooking or sewing courses at the Science School.
Meetings of this club were held every two weeks and were devoted to discussions of methods and kinks valuable to those taking Home Economics. Delicious refreshments were served at all of their meetings. The excellent instruction they received was put to use when they entertained at teas and dinners this year.
The members of the club were Miss Donna I'orkner, adviser; Alice Matuska, president; Hattie Marshall, vice-president; Sophie E m i I. secretary-treasurer; Mildred Iscrman, Mildred Grange, Rose Kinn, Cora Bale, Hnldis Gunness, Clarice Buus, Katherine Kastner, Grace Kuh, Carrie Stam, and Alberta Wolfswinkcl.
THE Glee Club was organized this year through a suggestion from President Riley who favored more music at the Science School. It was made up of boys and girls who had sung in choral groups in high schools and were interested in it.
Practices were held every Monday anil Wednesday evening except when the cold weather made it almost impossible to meet. Everyone enjoyed attending Glee Club practices and the members numbered about 50.
The Glee Club sang oil several assembly programs and at a District Teachers’ Convention held here. We arc sure that the students would like to have heard them many more times.The Old Plainsman_
HK photograph from which the picture on the opposite page was taken was loaned to the Agawasie by a friend. It represents a typical plainsman of early days. The scene is near old l-ort Abercrombie, a famous military outpost during the Indians wars. It was erected in 1858 by Lieutenant Colonel Abercrombie in obedience to government orders. In 1859 the Fort was abandoned but was occupied in I860, being rebuilt by Major Day. It was located on the west bank of the Red Riv'cr of the North, twelve miles north of the confluence of its two branches, the Bois-de-Sioux and the Otter Tail.
The Fort served as the gateway of immigration to North Dakota. And to the pioneer it was the best-known place west of St. Cloud, Minn. On the twenty-third of August 1862 hostilities began in the Red River Valley and several uprisings of the Indians occurred during the following months.
There were two main attacks on the fort, itself, one taking place September 3, and the other September 6, when the Sioux presumably of the Sisseton and Yankton band fought ferociously but were repulsed on both occasions.
'Fhe Fort was kept up until 1877, when it was abandoned, and the ensuing year the buildings were sold to the early settlers of that region who built houses and stalls of the material.
An appropriation of funds was obtained from the state in 1862 for the purchase of the old fort site to be used as a State Park and to be under the charge of the Richland County Old Settlers' Association and the State I Iistorical Commission.
fhe park is a six-acre tract located on the hank of the Red River. A pavilion has been erected here, from which a beautiful view of the surrounding country may be obtained.
Now that prosperity has crowned the work of many decades it is fitting that the younger generation should show their appreciation for the great struggle of our pioneer ancestors by such a memorial.cngawasie
Social Record of the Year
FIRST G ET-ACQU AT NTED PARTY
The night of Friday, September 27, was the date of the first big all-school party of the year. For the occasion the gymnasium was attractively decorated with streamers of red and black, the school colors.
Mr. McMillan took charge of the evening’s program. Several vocal solos were given by Irene Kinn, a former student of the school, and a recent graduate of the Columbia School of Music at Chicago, and also by Grctchen Cox, a Junior College Senior. The faculty committee attained their purpose to acquaint students with one another in a very clever and novel manner. A name-getting contest was featured and prizes were awarded to the boy and girl getting the most names. This contest was won by Doris Stock and Kenneth Albert.
President and Mrs. Riley led the Grand March, after which the dancing began. Ray’s Orchestra of Fergus h alls furnished the music. Later in the evening lunch was served, and after several more dances the party broke up to the strains of “Home Sweet I iome.” In every way the affair was a success and students eagerly looked forward to the remaining parties of the year.
The second party was “The Social Event of the Season.” Everyone agreed that the Science School students of '29 and ’30 were running over with spirit and enthusiasm. Never before have the students so whole-heartedly entered into the idea of the 1 Iallow-e’en costume party. Just about every country in the universe was represented in costume. Extremes such as Jack Frost and Satan, old-fashioned girls and little “kiddies,” and others were very much in evidence besides the usual number of Hallowe’en costumes.
In the costumes generally there was a good deal of beauty and a variety of novel effects. There must have been a hearty searching out of nooks and corners for appropriate apparel and the results certainly justified the search.
Mr. McMillan, Miss Walton and Miss Madden selected with a great deal of difficulty, the prize winners as all the masqueraders passed by them in a grand march. To those most appropriately dressed for Hallowe’en, prizes were awarded to Elfricda I Iartlebcn and Prentice Rice. For the cleverest, awards were given to Pauline LeMar and Percy Rudlang, who came in unusually well-chosen Arabian costumes. Those worthy l special mention wereAdelaide Dufelmeier, French Picrcttc; lul. Nelson, Little Boy: Rosclla Bernard, Old-Fashioned Girl; Marcella Jacobson, Turkish; Thore 1 lawk, Turkish; Marie Lconhardt, Sailor; Mrs. Mas-ica, Russian; Mrs. Larsson, Swedish; Howard Kilgore, Cowboy; Karlc Anderson, Basketball Girl; Jerome O’Keefe, Jack Frost; Gretchen Cox, Gypsy; Art Sampson, Clown; Mrs. McMillan, Old-Fashioned Girl: Joe Slagg, Spanish; Doris Stock. Gypsy; Sadie Larson and I .etta Shafer, Pirates; Hazel Sampson, Dutch; Art Nelson, Clown; Aurelius Raguse, Lady; Larney Starin, Schoolboy: Miss Petersen, Spanish; Karl Larsson, Swedish.
The greater part of the evening was spent in dancing to the music furnished by Ray’s Orchestra. Lunch was served at the end of the evening. All in all, the party was attractive, enjoyable, and well-worth remembering.
From start to finish, everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving party held on Friday, November 22. Dancing began at eight o’clock and continued until eleven thirty when lunch was served. Music was furnished by Ray’s Orchestra of Fergus Falls, who tempted everyone of Miss Peterson's disciples to “trip the light fantastic.’’ The large gym floor was fairly covered by a “just right” crowd of merrymakers. An enjoyable time was had by all although there was a shortage of the fair sex and many of the girls seemed badly in need of secretaries to keep their programs straight.
Phe card tables provided for those who did not wish to dance were well filled and the remaining onlookers found a great source of amusement in a new carrom hoard.
Old Man Weather did his level best to put the damper on the Christmas party but nevertheless the students turned out one hundred percent tor the event on the evening of December IS.
The beautifully decorated Christmas tree with its tinsels and lights proved to be a great attraction standing erect in the center af an altogether attractively decorated room.
The Gobi Coast Fntertainers furnished the music for the dancers while card tables were provided for those who did not dance. After refreshments were served the curiosity of the guests as to the contents of the many packages scattered under the spreading wings of the tree was satisfied when the gifts were passed among the crowd. Following this a general scramble was made for taxies to carry the guests to their residences.SliCONl) GCT-ACQUA1NTKD PARTY
The large number of new students enrolling alter Christmas necessitated another get-acquainted party which was held on the evening of Thursday, January 16. A group of downtown girls were invited to cover the shortage of “co-eds.” This proved to be a very successful way to cope with the problem of “too few femmes.”
'Pile Gold Coast Kntertainers furnished the music for dancing which constituted the evening program. The group of dancers surpassed in number any crowd of previous parties. Card playing was the pastime of the evening for those who did not care to dance.
ALL SCHOOL PARTY
The last all-school party of the winter term was held on Friday, February 28. Over two hundred and fifty students turned out even though the weather was very disagreeable, making this one of the most successful parties of the year.
A splendid program was prepared for an appreciative audience. Carol Stagcburg, newly discovered musician on the campus, played a trumpet solo entitled “Largo.” This was followed by two novelty whistling solos by Mrs. Palmer of Breckenridgc. She was accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Grover, also of Breckenridgc. Both of these numbers were very much enjoyed by the students.
Sally O'Neil, Fargo, a niece of Mrs. P. C. Olson, gave two acrobatic dancing specialties. They were “Tap Dance” and “Adagio.” Little Miss O'Neil "got by big” with the students.
The program closed with a violin solo by Harold Thompson entitled “Walter’s Prize Song.” Dancing began at 9 o'clock and continued until 1 1 o'clock when lunch was served. The Science Collegians, our own orchestra, played for the dance. The musicians deserve a great deal of praise for the wonderful way in which they progressed in so short a time.
GIRL’S KIDDI1-: PARTY, MARCH 14
Anyone looking in at the gymnasium on the evening of Friday. March 14, might have been tempted to believe that he had burst in on a recess period of a large kindergarten—for that is just what the State School of Science misses and faculty resembled.
The little kiddies arrived suitably dressed for the party at about eight o’clock. Seven members of the Fly family were there to receive them, and succeeded in banishing any trace of shyness which the little girls might have brought with them. The peanut hunt was staged. A decision as to who found the most peanuts
GIRL'S KID PARTY
could not he ascertained because some of the tomboys of the crowd ruthlessly took peanuts away from the sweet and weaker little girls. Other games, such as Farmer in the Dell, Pump,Pump Pull away. Prisoner’s Base, etc., were included in the evening’s entertainment.
After the Grand March prizes were awarded to: Rita Schaefer, cutest, Pauline LeMar and Leola Kinn, most original, Carrie Stam, best playmate (altho many children were apt to think she was too rough and tomboyish) and Gladys Havcrty, funniest. Lollipops were awarded to the following for honorable mention: Marion LaBelle, Agnes Prihoda, Elizabeth Korf, Haldis Gunness, and Inga Lcland.
Lunch was served at an early hour to enable the young children to reach home at the first sounds of the curfew( ?). Mot dogs, pickles, pop, candy, and ice cream (regular kiddie cats) were the refreshments for the evening. After everyone had confided to everyone else how many Eskimo Pies, Snickers, pickles etc., she had consumed, each little girl rushed home to get her full ten hours sleep.
TI IE STAG PARTY—M ARCl I 19
Wednesday, March 19, was the date for the most successful and the best attended Stag Party ever attempted at the StateSTAG PARTY
School of Science. Three hundred stags were in attendance. This included the Wahpcton Commercial Club, who furnished malt for the whole party.
A splendid program was arranged by the entertainment committee with lid. Nelson as chairman. Mr. Scffcns, Breckcnridge Minn., put on several magician stunts which were well received. The Breckcnridge Male Quartet also entertained the boys with several well chosen vocal selections. A novelty number was given by Arthur Thurn and Spencer Brovold, and a Gab best by Orville Persons and George Brewster.
After the program contests were staged with the men working for department honors. A tug-of-war, pie eating contests, sack race, drinking contest, and business men’s egg race comprised the events. The tug-o.i war was won by the Junior College, with the Aviators taking second place. 1 Iowever, everyone said that the pull between the Faculty and the Drafters and Estimators was a “dandy.”
Ivan kustad got high honors for the Aviators in the pie-catmg contest. Marvin Delm did his best for the Junior College but kustad was too much competition. Delm entered every eating and drinking contest staged. I larmon Kbeltoft and Ralph Jones did well when they succeeded in walking oft with two firsts for the Drafters and Estimators. Kbeltoft led in the nipple chewing con-Where To?
lest, ami Jones hopped across the line lirst in the sack race. Jim Murray pushed his hen fruit across the floor for lirst place in the business men's egg race.
After two boxing bouts everyone’s appetite was pretty well sharpened and it didn't take very long for the food to disappear. Malt, hot dogs, buns, ice cream, and doughnuts were served.
HOBO DAY, APRIL 26
The annual I I oho Day at Science was held on April 26 this year and it can truly be stated that it was the most successful event of its kind ever held at the school. The whole student body began their activities early in the morning when they appeared in regular “hum” regalia. There were many very good and unique costumes.
During the day vagabonds could he found on almost every street in the city asking for “handouts” at various residences or resting on lawns. In the afternoon the “hobos" staged their regular parade down Dakota Avenue. Then they all stopped at the Gilles Theatre, where they were given free admittance to the matinee. The whole gang then went to I Iawes Bakery to receive doughnuts. 'The Pastry Shop was the next stopping place and the “bums” were given candy. Kairmount Creamery generously gave them live gallons of ice cream. As they found it impossible to cat just this way they stopped at Bughee's Drug store and received a box of cones. Another march down Main street came to a stop at the Olympia Candy Kitchen where candy was passed around. Then they proceeded to the Wahpcton Creamery and each “hum” was presented with an Kskimo Pie. The army then crossed over to Leach and (iambic to procure bananas from the generous company. At Kraker's Recreation Parlors cigarettes were given to the gentlemen “bums.” The army began their journey hack to the “jungles,” the Science School campus. They were given a lift by the Whippet-Knight Garage who furnished them with cars. While up town the gang sang songs and gave yells for the places of business where they were treated so genially and generously. The hobos appreciated the way in which the Wahpcton Arms contributed materially to the day’s success.
Returning hack to school the remainder of the afternoon was spent in playing baseball. At seven o’clock supper was served to the “vagabonds” in the Burch Hall jungles. In the evening the group gathered at the gymnasium where they were entertained with a good program and dance. The W. 11. K. II. quartet of Brcckenridgc sang several good numbers which were loudly applauded by the “hums." Phis was followed with two banjo numbers by Spencer Brovold, after which Swan Peterson and Peter V.

Music lor dancing was furnished by the S. S. Collegians.
FOOTBALL BANQUKT DKCKMBKR, 4
The 1929 football squad met at a banquet held on Wednesday evening, December 4. at the Merchant’s Hotel. At last year’s banquet it was decided to do away with the practice of electing a captain for the whole season. Instead Coach Bute appointed a captain for each game, and then at the close of the season an honorary captain was to be elected. Marvin 1 Iausauer of Ortonville received the vote which makes him the first honorary captain to be elected under the new idea, (icorgc Brewster, Wahpcton, was awarded a trophy for the best blocking and tackling ability shown during the football season.
Announcement of the football lettermen was made at the banquet and the following men were presented with letters and sweat-M ■

The sextet consists of Lester Hill, Harold Thompson, Albert Olson, Larney Starin, Ed Nelson and La Verne Ottis.
Roy Merchant, Commercial Club president, in his talk emphasized the fact that the club was very interested in the work that the school is doing and also in the enrollment of so many students from all parts of North Dakota and from surrounding states.
Sheridan McIntyre, Agawasic Editor, gave a very interesting ten minute talk on the year book, pointing out that an early campaign had already yielded 305 subscriptions. He also explained that the students were all very interested in the book, wished to make it the best ever, and would deeply appreciate the advertising support of the local merchants. Professor F. II. McMahon also spoke on the same subject, showing that the Agawasic represented all departments of the school, was a prominent expression of student patriotism, and contributed materially to the growth of the school.
The directors of the Breckcnridgc Commercial Club and the S. S. S. faculty were guests of the club as was also Mr. Mark Forkner, Editor of the Cavalier Republican and Secretary of the North Dakota Press Association. I le was introduced, by President Riley, who acted as program director, and expressed his pleasure in visiting Wahpeton again and meeting so many old friends. I le spoke of his long interest in the Science School dating back to its very beginning and of his pleasure in observing its success. At the present time his niece, Miss Donna Forkner, is director of the Home Economics Department.
After the banquet the club members and their guests were shown through the shops and Main Building of the School. Students in the various departments displayed their work to a very interested audience. On this occasion many of the guests found their first opportunity to observe a Wright Whirlwind motor whichwas on display in the aviation department for thirty days. It was loaned to the school hv the Wright Aeronautical Corporation of Patterson, New Jersey.
BASKETBALL BANQUET MARCH, 25
The annual basketball banquet was held at the Merchant's Hotel, Tuesday evening, March 25. At this time George Brewster, Wahpeton. was elected honorary captain for the 1929-30 season. Announcement of those who received letters in basketball this year was made by Earl Bute. Lettermen are: Brewster, Nelson, Beeson, Dchn, Johnson, Hemmcrling, Ebeltoft, h'ranke and Persons.
Coach Bute made a very able toastmaster and introduced the speakers of the evening. Major Blister's talk centered around the fact that Wahpeton and the surrounding territory arc behind the Science School in everything they do, especially in athletic lines. There is no doubt that S. S. S. has 100% backing by Wahpeton people if they arc all as enthusiastic as “Doc.”
Instructor McMillan spoke on “Tradition” and the “winning tradition" the school has built up in athletics during the last few years. He said the school should and would continue to live up to these traditions.
Mr. Barnard, former S. S. S. basketball coach and electrical instructor here at the present time, praised the team for their success. Several members of the team also spoke briefly about the season’s play. They were Brewster, Nelson, Beeson, Johnson and Persons.
Guests other than the Wildcat team and speakers who were mentioned above wererThurn, Knutson, Scigcr, Brady, Elo, Herr, Trom, Peek, McIntyre, Lennon, Lawrence and Instructor Ness. The boys were rather disappointed when John Ness informed them that he could not tell them about his basketball career as he had told them about his football career for the simple reason that he had none.—People, fancy John Ness all togged up for a good, fast game of Basketball!
“S“ CLUB INITIATION, MARCH 27
Seven candidates were initiated into the “S” club on Thursday evening, March 27. The initiation ceremonies took place in the gymnasium. The new members who were initiated at this time were: George Brackin, Sheridan McIntyre, Jacob Hemmcrling, Irvin h'ranke, Marvin Dchn, Harmon Ebetoft, and Merton Brady.
The initiates went through a period of suffering the whole day. Large placards with clever sayings were pinned on their backs.livery time one of the poor boys met an honorable “S” club brother he was forced to greet him and bow with due reverence and respect. In case they refused to meet with an active’s smallest request it came back to them during the evening’s services. Each young aspirant found his way over to the aviation department, where he shaped out a paddle which was to be used on him later in case ol necessity.
Various stunts were performed by the boys during the day. George Brackin set up a scaffold affair and gave Henrick Ibsen his annual face washing and retouching. A sweet little novelty stunt was enacted with “Gus” Franke perched high up in a tree singing popular numbers in his beautifully melodious voice. Jake 1 Iemnier-ling sat on a rung of the ladder leaning against the tree, kept “Gus” there with a paddle, and attempted to whistle everything that “Gus” sang. Ebeltoft and McIntyre did a nifty job of cleaning up the front entrance steps. “Ebel” scrubbed the steps, with a toothbrush and water which he hail in a “goboon,” while “Mac” swept them after the entrance of everyonu visiting the main building. “Mutt” Dehn spent his spare time walking into classrooms, with a lighted lantern, searching for an honest man. Mert. Brady did well in the Girls’ Cloak room assisting the girls in removing their coats.
METER MEN'S CONVENTION
Forty-live metermen and speakers from northern and western Minnesota, North and South Dakota with the meter testing class of fourteen men from Science school made up the body, which attended the short course for electrical metermen held on April 10, II, and 12 by the department of electrical trades of the North Dakota State School of Science in cooperation with the North Central Electric Association.

'Phe Junior College Club’s first annual banquet ami formal dance was the most successful social function attempted at the State School of Science in recent years. Thirty-five couples attended the affair which was held on Tuesday, February 25, at the Masonic Temple.
Streamers of lavendar and green were artistically arranged to canopy the banquet hall. A center light was quaintly decorated as were the tables. The menu, dance program, and list of officers were printed and combined in a very attractive folder. Dinner consisted
of fruit cocktail, creamed chicken, mashed potatoes, buttered carrots, salad, ice cream, cake, and coffee, which was served in a praiseworthy way by the Methodist Ladies’ Aid.
Vernon Petty, president of the Junior College Club, acted as toastmaster of the evening, charming the audience with his wit and at the same time managing to introduce the speakers with great skill.
William Denk, who spoke on “Scholarship,” Orville Persons, whose subject was “Character.” Hazel Giddings, who talked on “Service,” Kdward Nelson, with a talk in “Leadership,” were all very interesting speakers.
Mayor Pfister, the principal speaker of the evening, impressed upon the club members the fact that they were fortunate in being able to attend school in this great day. He showed how different his college days were from those now, and also pointed out that the chances of being successful after leaving school are greater nowadays than they were a few years ago.

Plans are also under way and committees have been appointed for an outing at one of the Minnesota lakes, which will take place the latter part of May or the first part of June. All Junior College Club members are looking forward to the two remaining events of the season, which come too late to be given exact account in this year’s book, and are thoroughly satisfied with the work the club accomplished this year.
SCIKNCK CLUB PARTIES
The Science Club preferred to make each monthly meeting a party with a program, dance and lunch, and in this way had a very successful year.
At the first meeting, Tuesday, October 23, after a business session, an interesting and enjoyable program was given. ArthurNelson was first on the program, with two vocal selections, “A Perfect Day” and “Coming Home.” Agnes Prihoda then read a paper on the radio program given in honor of Edison's birthday anniversary. I'his was followed by two vocal solos by Ed Nelson, l ie sang “Roses of Picardy” and “Three for Jack.” Eva Orcutt, who had the opportunity to witness the National Air Derby at Cleveland last summer, gave an interesting account of it. Music lor the dance was furnished by the electric combination radio-phonograph which is owned by the school. After dancing, a delicious lunch was served.
Alter the business meeting on November 12, a good program was offered by the Burch Hall boys. Lester Hill sang two popular numbers, accompanied by Ha .el Giddings. They were entitled “Singin in the Rain” and “Who Wouldn’t Be Jealous of You?” I homas McIntyre followed with a talk on “Television." The program closed with two of Donald Gloege’s popular saxaphonc solos. Dancing and lunch concluded the evening's meeting.

THE FRENCH CLUB PARTY
Although the French Club held many entertaining meetings at the homes of various members of the club and at school, two will be outstanding in the minds of the “Monsieurs” and “Mademo-selles.”
January 20, was the date that the French I students were admitted to the club. At this meeting several of the girls enacted the one-act play “Cinderella," in which they used French dialect entirely. The characters were played by the following: Sisters, Harriet Divet and Eva Orcutt; Cinderella, Gretchen Cox; Fairy, Leona Molthusen; Prince, Lucille Hatch; and Page, Agnes Prihoda. After the program cards and dancing were continued until eleven o’clock.
The Handball Room was attractively decorated for the annual French Club Dance which was held on h riday evening, May 2. The hall was made to resemble a hrench cafe, with several shades of yellow and orange streamers cleverly arranged. One end of the room represented the cafe proper, where punch was served at several tables under a brightly colored awning. The opposite end was just as attractive with its orchestra platform and lights decorated to carry out the theme of the party. I he remain-ing space was used for dancing. Streamers, from the ceiling leading to one covered central light, made a bright roof for the dancers. Programs were of parchment paper with yellow pencils. Favors consisting of crepe paper French dolls, cleverly hiding candy, and vari-colored paper hats were given to the members and their guests. Several specialties during the dancing program for the evening were: Jack Pfister, who gave several of his popular “Song and Dance" acts. Little Miss Phyllis Fleckenstein, who made a big hit with her audience in reading, dancing, and singing novelties, (she was costumed in clever little outfits for several of her numbers); and Kd Nelson, a member of the club very much in demand at school and outside activities during the past year because of his unusual baritone voice, who sang “The Ranger Song" and responded to an encore. Music was furnished by the S. S. Collegians. Patrons and patronesses were: Pres, and Mrs. K. F. Riley, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. McMillan, Mr. and Mrs. Al. Bader, Mr. and Mrs. W. I I. McClintock, Mr. and Mrs. Karl Bute, Miss Vera Petersen and Mr. B. 11. Barnard.
MECHANICS CLUB MEETINGS
During the entire year the mechanics found boxing and wrestling bouts the greatest entertainment after their regular meetings. Boxing on a suspended pole was the most fun of all and toward the end of the year several boys distinguished themselves in the sport.
The first meeting of the year was held on Thursday, November 14, with a very good attendance. Election of officers took place. Then boxing and wrestling bouts followed. A lunch was also served during the evening.
The date for the next meeting of the Mechanics Club was December 5, on Thursday, the regular meeting day. G. V. I lav-erty was the speaker of the evening choosing as his subject the “Dunwoody Institute" of Minneapolis. The talk was all the more interesting because of the fact that Mr. Haverty was employed by that institution for several years. An excellent lunch was served after which the meeting broke up at about I I :45.
In December the regular meeting took place on the 18th. Boxing matches featured at this meeting will be rememberedMECHANICS CLUB DANCE
by the mechanics for sometime. The main bout between Par Dcvitl and John Pechtl, ended rather disastrously when John received a black eye; and Pat a cut lip, which necessitated a visit to the doctor, who used seven stitches to repair said lip. G. V. I lav-erty gave an interesting and entertaining talk concerning various jobs for a machinist, and Art Sampson, Aviation instructor, told of the thrilling times he had experienced during his companionship with Ben Fielson in Alaska, where both were pilots: Fielson was in the mail service, and Sampson in passenger service. The meeting ended with a generous offering of good eats.
The remainder of the meetings were of the same nature, that is, with the exception of one, on the 20th of February. 'Phis was the gala event for the mechanics. Kach was accompanied by his young lady friend to the S. S. S. gymnasium where dancing and cards were the entertainment for the evening. Music was furnished by the S. S. Collegians and at eleven-thirty the plumbers, aviators, drafters and estimators, bricklayers, auto-mechanics, and their girls departed feeling that the evening was well spent.SACAJAWEA CLUB ACTIVITIES
The all women’s club of the school began their activities early in the school season with a hike anil lunch on Sunday, September 29. This was the form of a reception given by the old girls for the new ones, thus affording the girls a wonderful opportunity to become acquainted with one another.
At a meeting held on Monday evening, November 4, at Center Cottage, President Gretchen Cox appointed several assistants, after which girls were elected to represent the various campus groups on the girls cabinet. Miss Petersen, Dean of Women, gave a talk emphasizing character and ideals. The girls went to Burch I lull, for a time after the meeting, and enjoyed dancing to the combination phonograph-radio in the reception room.
“Sardines," a one-act play, was presented to the Sacajawea girls on Monday evening, February 9, by members of the club. The cast of characters for the play included: Doris Stock, Mat-tie Eaton; Carrie Stam, Lizzie Pike; Rosclla Bernard, Lucy Watkins; Florence Rassicr, Anne Carroll; Hildcgarde Dietz, Allrcda. All of the girls took their parts exceptionally well, and some fine talent was exhibited. Games of various sorts completed the program, after which tea was served by the cabinet.
The girls decided on a standard pin for the duh at the meeting on Monday, April 7. The pin consists of an Indian head with the letter “S” inscribed on it, all in silver.
Although definite plans have not yet been made, the last meeting of the Sacajawea club will be a picnic-outing, probably at one of the nearby lakes. The girls intend to make this their big event of the season.
ELECTRICAL CLUB ACTIVITIES
Although the club staged no spectacular social events at the meetings, members are well satisfied with accomplishments of the year. At almost every meeting several reels of moving pictures were shown during the program. Some of the pictures shown were: An explanation of “The Radio" and “Parts of the Electric Motor"; “Something about Switchboards;” “Manual Trick Assembly;" and “Through the Swithboard” put out by the Western Electric Company; “'Piers of Steel;" “The Panama Canal;” andLITTLE GERMAN BAND AT ASSEMBLY
“Cuba, the Sugar Country.” Games were played at the meetings. Occasionally musical talent appeared on the program and delicious lunches were served.
MOM]i KCONOMIC CLUB ACTIVITILS
The Home of Miss Donna borkner was the meeting place for the girls of the Home Economics club at their first social event of the season. The party, a Christmas affair, took place on b rid ay evening, December 13. Novel games formed the entertainment of the evening, prizes being awarded to the winners. Sopie Lmil carried away the highest honors. After a most delicious lunch, the packages were distributed, each member presenting another with a small gift. Miss b'orkner was the recipient of a vanity set presented by the girls as a small token of appreciation.
At another meeting held on Wednesday afternoon, bebruary 5, in the Reception room at Burch Hall, card playing and dancing made up the entertainment. A lunch was served.
The girls intent! to take a short outing during the latter part of May but nothing is definitely known concerning this event.Roosevelt in the Bad Lands
T WAS still the Wild West in those days, the Far West, the West of Owen Wistcr’s stories and Frederic Remington's drawings, the West of the Indian and the buffalo-hunter. the soldier and the cow-puncher. Thar land of the West has gone now, ‘gone, gone with lost Atlantis,' gone to the isle of ghosts and of strange dead memories. It was a land of vast silent spaces, of lonely rivers, and of plains where the wild game stared at the passing horseman. It was a land of scattered ranches, of herds of long horned cattle, and of reckless riders who unmoved looked in the eves of life or death. In that land we led a free and hardy life, with horse and with riHe. We worked under the scorching midsum.-mcr sun, when the wide plains shimmered and wavered in the heat; and we knew the freezing misery of riding night guard round the cattle in the late fall round-up. In the soft springtime the stars were glorious in our eyes each night before we fell asleep: and in the winter wc rode through blinding blizzards, when the driven snow-dust burnt our faces. There were monotonous days, as wc guided the trail cattle or the beef herds, hour after hour, at the slowest of walks; and minutes or hours teeming with excitement as we stopped stampedes or swam the herds across rivers treacherous with quicksands or brimmed with running ice. We knew toil and hardship and hunger and thirst; and we saw men die violent deaths as they worked among the horses and cattle, or fought in evil feuds with one another; but we felt the beat of hardy life in our veins, and ours was the glory of work and joy of living.”

- C2yz i-7'dL The Football Season
THIRTY men answered Coach Butes first call for candidates among them being six veterans from the 1928 squad. 1 hev were Brewster, Maas, Butcher, Persons, Fisher and Hausauer. With these men to form a nucleus prospects were very bright for a winning team.
The team that Bute put on the field for the opening game was one of the heaviest that had reprsented Science for a number of years. The average weight of the line was 174 pounds; that of the hackiicld 169.
In the seasons play the Wildcats won four games and lost two. North Dakota State Freshmen defeated them in a non-conference contest and the Moorhead Peds downed them in the championship game of the season. As a result the Peds won the Conference honors and the Wildcats were forced into second place.“Hutch'' Butcher
WILDCATS 41; PARK RF.GION 0
Science Wildcats inaugurated their 1929 football season with an impressive 41 to 0 conquest of the Park Region Lutheran eleven of Fergus halls. Coach Bute presented a line-up that was one of the heaviest developed at Science for years.
The Wildcats scored their first of six touchdowns a few minutes after the opening kickoff. Lranke broke through and blocked a Park Region punt. Gardner, the Wildcats baby elephant, fell on the ball on the one yard line. There was one strange thing that happened on the play. It wasn't hranke’s blocking of the punt because “Gus” blocked many during the year, but it was strange (or shall we say phenomenal) that the ball didn't burst open when “Dick" fell on it. At any rate the ball retained its shape and Brewster took it over for a touchdown on the next play.
From then on the Wildcats scored with little difficulty and soon ran up a comfortable margin. Park Region failed to get anywhere on the offense, the Wildcats forward line stopping their running plays cold and the Wildcats
“Babe" Personshacks thwarting their attempts to gain via the air route.
Incidentally we might add that the play on which Gardner fell on the hall was the only tense moment of the game.
WILDCATS 20; VIKINGS 0
Operating behind a ponderous and powerful forward wall, Bute’s classy quartet of pigskin toters tossed, ran and bucked their way to a 20 to 0 victory over the Valley City Vikings.
The Morrisonmen showed their reputed light during the first half by staging a rally in the closing minutes of that period which, with some nice runs by Jimmy Eckel carried them to within a few yards of the goal line. However at this point the Wildcat line put up a stubborn resistance and staved off the attack until the period ended.
Seemingly inspired by their past prospects of success the Vikings came back strong in the beginning of the second period in an effort to erase the 6-0 margin which the Science men held against them. Their rally was short lived, however, and they soon found themselves thrown behind their own
“Kenny" Mtms11Jnd" Bravkin
goal for a touchback. Brilliant runs by Dehn, Brewster and Butcher and some good passing on Hausauer’s part contributed another touchdown for the Triple “S“ men. A blocked punt recovered by Franke, diminutive Wildcat tackle, was responsible for the other counter. Fries for the extra points failed on all three occasions. The final minutes of play were characterized by the numerous attempts to complete successful passes. The Vikings making a last stand in an effort to score found their heaves closely covered and in most cases smeared. Wildcat attempts, although successful to a greater degree were insufficient to increase the then insured victory.
Once again the Skipper and his horde of moleskin clad warriors will wear the long extinct and nearly forgotten garter. May fashion never come to that again.
WILDCATS 0; FROSH 19
North Dakota State Freshmen invaded the Wildcat stronghold with feeling of confidence. They, having defeated Science in 1925, were deter-
"Clink" usemined to again return home victorious. Tradition proved to be true and again Science fell before a herd of young Bison by a 19 to 0 score.
Science aerial attack failed to function properly and their rushes were impelled by a heavy and brilliant yearling line. The Wildcats seemed to have a bad case of “Fumblitis” and were unable to catch many of the brilliantly placed passes of Captain 1 Iausauer.
'flic Frosh made most of their advances on w e 1 1 executed power plays, their passing attack being well covered by alert Wildcat backs. A feature of the game was the play by Bunt. McKay and Furguson for the Frosh. Brewster, Frankc and Brackin were the stellar performers for the Wildcats.
The game was featured with thrills, the biggest coming in the second period when McKay, a Frosh backfield ace, got away to a clear field in returning a punt, and was overtaken by 1 Iausauer a few yards from the Wildcat goal line.
SCIENCE 70; ELLEN DALE 0 A wild running Wildcat eleven scampered to a 70 to 0 victory over
“ Sytl ” I i’I arsonthe Lllendale Dusties. From the start the Wildcats had everything their own way. They hit the line, ran the ends, and passed effectively to keep the Kl-lendale goal in constant danger during the game.
The Wildcats obtained eight of their touchdowns on passes. (Thanks to Hausauer.) The heavy Science line opened great holes in the weaker and lighter Fllendaic forward wall to let the fast, hard-hitting Wildcat backs, through for long gains.
Brewster, the outstanding player, obtained six touchdowns for his team. T he work of Larry Fisher in the line was also commendable.
The Dusty quint could not penetrate the strong Wildcat line and were compelled to punt constantly. The Dusties were held to two first downs, one coming on an end run and the other on a pass. They never threatened the Science goal.
Many second string Wildcats were sent into the fray and they too kept the disheartened Dusties at bay.
“Ruhr" It nil sonWILDCATS AT MAYVILLE
WILDCATS 12; MAYVILLE 6
Bute’s fighting warriors defeated the Mayvillc Comets, at Mayville, 12 to 6. The game was played on a field covered with six inches of snow, making it hard for the players to pass or punt with any degree of accuracy. Brewster hitting the line and Dehn running the ends featured the offensive.
Both of the Wildcat’s touchdowns were scored by Dehn on end runs. Mayville made their tally on the last play of the game. Brewster attempted to punt but the kick was blocked when Eddie Johnson backed up in trying to block off his man and in doing so ran into Brewster. That’s one for Ripley’s “Believe It or Not.”
The Mayville Comets were unable to make much yardage through the heavier Wildcat line and were kept on the defense most of the game.
Disagreeable weather put the players in a lighting frame of mind, in fact several were ejected from the game because ol too much light. Some of the spectators felt the same way. This was especially true of John Ness and Sheridan McIntyre who should have been ejected from the park. ('There was no one as big as John at the game and as a result both “bail boys” stayed to see the end.)WILDCATS 0; PHDS 19
Moorhead Teachers, imdeafeatcd Interstate Leaders downed a lighting Wildcat aggregation 19—0 in a viciously fought battle. The defeat left the Science Club in second place for Conference honors.
The Moorhead Pcds used an affective forward pass to bring about the downfall of the Wildcats. Two of their touchdowns resulted from this baffling aerial attack.
During the entire game both teams played “I leads Up" football and waited for the breaks.
The Ped rushes were stopped Hat by a lighting Science line and it was this same line that kept Ingersoll and Robinson from making any great gains. Three times during the fracas did the Wildcat forward wall rally within their ten yard line to hold the Teachers from pushing the pigskin across.
Science was somewhat handicapped by the injuries of Butcher and Dehn, stellar backficld performers. Nevertheless, they took their defeat fighting gloriously to the end.
Moorhead scored their first counter in the second quarter on a pass, Ingersoll to Davis. The extra point was missed.
Bute’s men made their most dangerous assault of the game after the first Moorhead score. On a series of passes and bucks they carried the ball to the Teacher’s one-foot line, only to loose on a fumble the oval on downs.
f lic Peds scored their third touchdown by completing three successive passes to place the ball on the one-yard line. The Wildcats held for two downs but on the third Moorhead plunged over for the final counter.The Wildcats
ALTHOUGH the 1930 Wildcats did not win the Interstate Conference they did succeed in compiling just as good a record as the 1929 team did in winning the title. Last seas-son the Wildcats won 17 games and lost 4. I he 19 0 Wildcats repeated the performance.
Injuries and sickness hurt the Wildcats considerably. Brewster was taken ill a week before the Valley City fracas at Wahpcton and was in poor shape to play in the game. Beeson and Nelson, star guards, were out of the game several times during the season on account of injuries.
Brewster led the individual scorers of the Conference for the third year in succession with a mark of 134. This total was made in conference games only. During the entire season he made 213 counters.
In the three years that George has been at Science he has taken part in 54 games during which time he scored a total of 884 points. This is an average of 16 points a game.
Live of the nine lettermen have played their final game as Wildcats. The other four will return for another year of competition. Beeson, Brewster, Johnson, Nelson and Persons arc the men lost through graduation. Their places will be hard to fill.WILDCATS 34; ELLEN DALE 19
After three weeks of intensive training Coach Bute took hi squad of Wildcats to Kllendalc where they opened the 1929-30 season against the Dusties. The Wildcats won the game hv a 34-19 score.
During the first half the Wildcats were not hitting very good or else the Dusties were going like a four cylinder car hitting on six. (Visit John Ness in the Mechanics department and you will find out what it is like.) At any rate the Dusties kept right behind the Wildcats and would not allow the Butemcn to get much of a lead. 1 he Dusties thought they were in a whist game because every time the Wildcats made a basket they would follow suit. In the last few minutes of the first half the Wildcats began to “percolate.” The Dusties were short suited and couldn’t follow the Wildcats' play. As a result the “S" men held a 14 to 9 advantage at the end of the initial period of play.
In the second half the ’Cats continued to bombard the Ellcn-dale basket and soon ran up a good lead. The Ellendalc offense was not so good in the final period. Most of their work was done in
the first part of the game.
George Brewster could ? not hit the basket in the ( first period of play, only being able to garner one-free throw. George must have thought he was playing volley ball because he tossed the ball over the backboard many times in the first ill". (He used the backboard for a net.) owever in the last half he came back id helped the Wildcats “dust" off the ustics, by scoring six field goals.
WILDCATS 37: ABERDEEN 27
From Ellcndale the Wildcats moved to berdeen, S. I)., where they played the orthern Normal of that city. I Icrc they "ed their second win of the season by eating the Normal Wolves 37 to 27.
The first half of the game was nip and tuck. Both teams lived up to their name of Wildcats and Wolves by giving a demonstration of Darwin’s
lice sontheory ol the "survival of the fittest." At the end of the first half the Wolves led hy a scant one point, the score being 12 and 1 1.
In the second half the Wildcats came back with much zip and pep. What caused the change? Coach Bute must have given them some new theories. They ran their count up to 22 in a few min, utes before the Wolves knew the second half hail started. The Aberdeen coach used three complete teams but they were of no avail. Rocknc's theory of “shock troops” wouldn’t work here. In the final few minutes the Wildcats played a very slow type of game coupled with a fast break.
Marvin "Karl” Dehn had a long army coat on and when the boys marched down the Aberdeen streets every one thought that he was a salvation army man. Too bad he wasn't dressed as Santa Claus. He would have made some money for the boys.
WILDCATS 19; CONCORDIA 16
In a game packed with thrills from start to finish the Science Wildcats battled to a 38 to 31 victory over the Concordia College Cobbers of Moorhead.
At the sound of the whistle the Cobbers took the lead and remained out in front until the early part of the second half, when the Wildcats forged ahead to victory. The Concordia quint seemed to function smoothly in their passing attack and worked the ball nicely down the floor but could not connect n loop. After the first utes of play Concordia 3 and seemed pointed foi Science however, throu work of Brewster and 1 kept within a few points Cobbers. By several successful long shots the Wildcats crept up on the Cobbers and at half time were but three points behind, the Cobbers leading 19 to 16.
Bute’s men came back strong in the second half to completely outplay the Moorhead team. The Wildcats brought the ball up the court slowly and waited for the breaks. This style proved effective and they soon established a ten point lead. With a comfortable edge the Wildcats played a stalling game until the final whistle.
rith the six min-led 9 to • a win. gh the Fra like,
Brewster and Frank? were the scoring aces for Science, while on defense Nelson and Beeson showed up well. I lalmrast was the star for the visitors.
SCIENCE 45; AUGUSTANA 22
Science Wildcats defeated Augustana College 45 to 22 in a game marked by frequent fouling and listless playing.
Neither team seemed to have the necessary pep to make a good game. The Wildcats, however, were far superior to the South Dakotans. Although the Augustana quint exhibited a line pass formation, the heavy Wildcats kept them from working the ball under the net.
The outstanding players of the game were Brewster and Nelson for Science, and Johnson and Sonstegard for Augustana. Brewster registered 17 points for the Wildcats, while N. Johnson of Augustana got 12 points.
During the first half the Wildcats seemed to miss the net frequently, nevertheless, thev managed to emerge with a lead of 1 9 to 10.
At the start of the second period both teams seemed to pick up. The Wildcats steadily increasing their lead soon had the game “on ice." The Augustana quint never threatened the Wildcats thereafter.
72 The Wildcats played the game without
their star guard, Bud Beeson, and did remarkably well in holding the South Dakotans to a low score.
WILDCATS 27; PARK REGION 22
The first game after the Christmas holidays was played at Fergus halls with Park Region Lutheran College furnishing the opposition. Science went over to Fergus Falls expecting an easy game but were surprised at the team they ran up against. They managed to win by a five point margin the score being 27 to 22.
The game was very rough both teams using the rolling block and the Hying tackle to good advantage—for the other side. Thirty personal fouls were called, two Park Region men and one Wildcat being put out of the game for excessive use of football tactics.
Hcm merlin(jAt the end of the first half the Wildcats held a big advantage over the Parkics, the score being 16 to 5. In the second half the Park Region team scored heavily and had the Wildcats board of strategy worried. In the last few minutes the “S” men came through with several baskest and with these baskets insured a victory.
FARGO GRANDS 33; WILDCATS 27
Bute’s Wildcats lost their first game of the season here when they fell before the Grand Recreation team of Fargo. The Grands attack built around such star men as Bobby Rusch, former Northwestern star; Hermes and Blakely from N. D. State and Bristol Phillips and Powers, other college players, took a big lead in the first period of play and held it throughout the game.
The Wildcats could not get going during the first half while the Grands seemingly could not miss. The score at the end of the initial period was 17 to 6 with the Wildcats on the short end.
In the second half the Butemcn came back strong and cut down the lead of the Grands considerably. The Wildcats continual to play heads up ball and with five minutes to go the Grands held only a three point lead. An effective stalling game however kept their . small lead safe.
Nelson and Brewster led the Wildcats in scoring, the former getting 12 points and the latter 8. Rusch was the leading point getter for the Grands.
N. D. STATE 29; WILDCATS 22
Three vears ago the Wildcats defeated the Bison, at Wahpeton, by a 46 to 37 score. This year the Bison wcrc out for revenge. They succeeded in winning the game but did they get revenge? No, is the answer.
Three years ago the Wildcats won easily- This year the Bison were lucky to win at all, let alone the revenge. All during the game
until the last three minutes of play the largest lead the
NelsonBison had was lour points. That was at half time. Most of the time they had only a one or two point lead. Once in the first hall the Wildcats were leading by a 7 to 6 score.
The defeat was the second of the season but the game did not count in the conference standings as the Bison do not belong to the conference we do.
The Wildcats were unable to forge ahead but trailed close behind the Bison all the time until the last few minutes when the State registered three baskets by the use of stalling tactics. Aside from these closing minutes of play the game was practically even all of the time.
No, the Bison didn’t get revenge this year. Fate has decided to play a stalling game for at least another year.
SCIENCE 44; MOORHEAD 37
Moorhead, as a result of another Wildcat onslaught was forced to return home on the short end of a 44 to 37 score.
I he “S' men took the lead in the first few minutes of play and remained ahead throughout the game, although closely pressed by the Pcds at all times. In rapid succession, the Wildcats rang up nine points before the Nemzekites could realize the game bad started. Moorhead then spurted and reduced the Wildcat lead to a single point. After the first five minutes of play the count stood II to 10 in the Wildcats' favor. Play continued at a fast
clip with first one team making a basket and then the other. The home talent led 23 to 22 at the half.
Science came back strong at the bc-ginning of the second half and by a baskets established a ten point and continued to hold a corn-lead until the final gun.
Brewster and Johnson featured the Wildcats, while Gilpin, Mobcrg and Robinson were outstanding for the visitors. Robinson, no doubt, was the oustanding player on the floor. He was a tower of strength on defense and showed considerable offensive power to score 14 points for bis tea m.

I) dmWILDCATS 42; DICKINSON 28
Science Wildcats played two games with the Dickinson Normal Savages, at Dickinson, winning both encounters by comfortable margins. It was the first time that any athletic competition was held between the two schools.
In the first game the Wildcats started out at a fast clip and soon held a good lead. The Savages didn’t appear so very ‘'savage.” They let the Wildcats score almost at will and at the end of the initial period of play the invaders held a 22 to 8 advantage. In the second period of play the Savages were out to show what their name stood for. They put on a spurt that netted them live baskets and brought them within a few points of the Wildcats total. Science took time out and talked things over. After this intermission the Savages lost their savagery and Bute’s boys breezed along to victory.
Just before the game the boys paddled ‘(ins brankc because he wouldn’t carry their suit cases, that being part of his initiation into the “S" club. The paddling did “Gus” good because he stepped out and made 18 points during the game. Maybe it would be a good idea to spank some of the boys all the time or all the boys some of the time. It worked once, it might again.
WILDCATS 29; DICKINSON 19
Dickinson Savages were not so “savage” the second night and the Wildcats had an easy time downing the Slope Region team. It was the Wildcats fifth conference victory of the season.
I he first half of the game was practically the same as the previous night, the Wildcats getting a big lead and then taking things easy the rest of the game. I he score at the half way mark was 19 to 9. In the second half the Savages forgot the “firewater’ and as a result did not have anything to give them a spurt. They were thinking about getting out of the game with their scalps intact.
FrankeBecause there were no shower baths at the Armory "here the game was played the boys had to go to the hotel and launder themselves. 1 here was only one hath tub so they got together and sang that old favorite, “Singing in the Bath I ub. brankc, Dehn Beeson and Brewster formed a quartette. I hey all sang the song but only one of them was singing, “Singing in the Bath I ub, in the bath tub.
WILDCATS 35; CO. 11., 1 8
On the return trip from Dickinson the ildcats stopped off at Jamestown to play Co. H., national guard team. I he ildcats had little trouble , disposing of this team, saving themselves for their encounter with Valley City the following week.
Several minutes elapsed before the first score of the game was made. Beeson dribbled down the right side of the court and then stopped to book pass to Brewster. Instead of Brewster getting the ball the sphere went through the basket for the first counter.
By the way, that was the best single basket shooting done this year. There are few players other than Ben Turpin that can look one way and shoot another. Of course “Bud" can make his eyes do strange things so we don't know if he was shooting where he was looking.
Jamestown is “Gus" Franke's home town and he did his stuff in great fashion that night. He and Brewster worked together in many plays that culminated in baskets.
On the way to Jamestown from Dickinson the Wildcats ate on a Northern Pacific diner. When the meal was finished the waiter brought on the finger bowls. Only Coach Bute's close guarding kept Dchn from drinking the contents of the bowl. The rest of the boys benefited by the act and during the rest of the trip governed themselves accordingly. Every one was glad to get off the “Dakota Division"—except “Gus.”
PersonsSCIENCE 45; PARK REGION 32
The Science Wildcats continued their string of victories at the expense of Park Region College, winning by a 45 to 32 score.
Alter the first few minutes of play the Science men piled up a big lead and continued to hold this lead throughout the game. The game was rather slow and uninteresting because there was a lack of close competition. It was one of those “Same Old Story" games, where Science won. Many second string men were sent into the game and did remarkably well in holding the Parkies.
The half ended 22 to 8.
In the second half Bute let the second string men play most of the time and it made the game more even and interesting. Scoring was about even, but the game still lacked the pep and snap to make t a good contest.
Brewster led the Wildcat tossers in points with a total ol 14; while Jacobson was the leading Park Region man with 13.
WILDCATS 41 ; ELLEN DALE 23
The battling Scientists defeated the Ellendale Dusties, 41 to 23, in a game played at the Science gym. It was the second time this season that the Wildcats defeated the Dusties.
The game was slow at the start with neither team scoring very rapidly. After a few minutes Science forged ahead to a four point lead, and held this margin until shortly before the half, when Ellendale tied the count. At this point the Wildcats defense tightened and held the Dusties to 8 points. The Science offense clicked better, making it possible to garner 18 counters.
Dchn and Brewster led the ildcats offensive. Eddie Johnson proved a tough obstacle to elude when the Ellendale team attempted to score.
Ellendale had hard luck in the game, Hugh Ackcrt and Gil Moc, Dustie aces, getting sprained ankles in the early part of the game.
Both teams had tough breaks when under the basket missing the basket by close mar-gins.
EbelloftWILDCATS 34; VALLKY CITY 23
In one of the greatest battles of the season the Valley City Vikings fell before the slow and deliberate playing of Bute's Wildcats. The Wildcats, after trailing at the conclusion of the first half, came back in the second part of the game and completely out-played the Vikings.
During the first part of the game the scoring was fairly even. The Wildcats spurted for a few minutes and took the lead with a 14 to 8 total. This was short lived however, the Vikings coming back with a spurt to lead at half time by a 16 to 14 count.
In the second half the Wildcats swept over the Vikings like a steam roller crushing rock. Brewster made a short shot that tied the count and then the Wildcats surged ahead to victory. In the final few minutes the 'Cats used a stall game to good advantage.
Many Science students attended the game, a special bus being chartered for the occasion. Ater the game the students paraded around the town. It was a great evening for some of the boys. For the students that went home on the bus the evening proved too long. What a night! What a night!
MOORHLAD 40; WILDCATS 22
Moorhead Pcds handed the Wildcats their first conference defeat of the season by a 40 to 22 score. The Wildcats played a brand of ball that was exactly opposite the caliber that they displayed the previous night when they defeated the Valley City Vikings.
Moorhead was a jinx for the Wildcats this year as far as athletics were concerned. In football the Beds defeated the Cats in the championship game and then again in basketball the Peels were the team that put the Wildcats out of the running.
In this encounter the Wildcats played a flat footed game and as a result the Moorhead team got the ball on nearly every tip-off. At the end of the first half the Pcds had a 20 to 9 lead.As the Wildcats “steam rollcrcd" the Vikings the night before so did the Peels steam roll the Wildcats. Robinson and Moeberg were down the court in a hurry and played the Wildcat off their feet.
Had the game been played on a different night than the one following the Valley City game the result might have been different. As it was the Wildcats were a bit over-confident.
The floor at the Moorhead armory was very slippery and as a result many of the boys went on their “ear.” Dchn, (none other than Karl) took several beautiful spills. Marvin evidently thought that he was swimming around. He undoubtedly should have been put in dry dock to be given a complete over-hauling. As far as that goes all the Wildcats needed a rebuilding after the game.
VALLKY CITY 32; WILDCATS 24
Science Wildcats lost to the Valley City Vikings, at Wahpeton, in one of the strangest games ever played on the Science floor. The defeat cost the Wildcats the conference championship.
Valley City took the lead in the first minute of play caging three baskets from long range in rapid succession. They then proceeded to play a stall game, keeping the ball in the back court until the Wildcats closed in on them, and then making a quick break for the basket. The Vikings piled up a big advantage in the first part of the game but the Wildcats came back and were trailing the Vikings by only three points when the half ended. The score was 1 7 to 14.
In the second half the Wildcats fought an uphill battle all of the time. They stayed right behind the Vikings but passed up the several opportunities that would have put them out a-hcad. 1 lad they taken the lead the game would have been much different.
In the last four minutes the Vikings, who were still using their stall game effectively, came through with
three bakets and made the Johnsongame safe as far as they were concerned. Brewster was in poor shape for the game, illness keeping him in bed most of the week. Beeson and ITanke were forced out of the game early in the first half because of personal fouls.
WILDCATS 25; MINOT 24
Minot Beavers nearly upset the Wildcats in the first ol a two game series at the Science gym. The Wildcats were not playing up to form displaying a very poor brand of basketball. Stalling was necessary in the last minute in order to keep the Beavers from winning.
The first half of the game was very slow. The Wildcats thought that they were at a funeral. Coach Bute was thinking of sending rocking chairs out to the boys fully equipped with foot rests, etc. At the end of the first half the Beavers led by one point the score being 11 to 10.
In the second half the Wildcats forgot all about easy chairs and came back to take the lead from the Beavers and establish a good margin. In the last few minutes the Beavers made several baskets and again threatened the Wildcats’ lead. Science stalled until the gun barked ending the game and giving the Wildcats victory by one point. Well the old saying is this “One is as good as a hundred.”
Marvin Dchn was the only Wildcat that played up to form in this game. He was always rushing up and down the floor (trying to watch his man) in an untiring way. His attitude was “catch me, Fni a butterfly." Any one attending the basketball games during the winter will know what the writer means.
WILDCATS 26; MINOT 18
Science Wildcats had an easier time disposing of the Minot Beavers in the second and final game of the series. In the first few minutes the Minot team had the advantage of the play but thereafter the Wildcats took the lead and never relinquished it.
Minot made the first basket of the game and then continued to pile up a small lead. The Wildcats came back and took the lead away from the Beavers and at half time were leading by a 12 to l) score.
In the second half the Wildcats increased their lead to a point where there was no danger of defeat staring them in the face. The final count was 26 to 18.Brewster was high point man for the Wildcats with a total of 14 points. Nelson and Beeson proved a tough pair for the Minot offense to elude.
WILDCATS 32; KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS 30
During the regular basketball season the Wildcats played many fast and interesting games but it remained for one of the postseason encounters to show the fans what a truly great game is like. The Wildcat-K. C. game was one of the best ever played on the Science court.
During the first half the game was not very interesting. It was just another game for the members of both teams. The small crowd that attended had little pep. Everybody was quiet. At the end of the first half the Wildcats held a 21 to 1 1 lead.
In the second half play picked up considerably. Play was more exciting and faster. The K. C. team came back and tied the count. K. C. followers went wild. The Wildcat fans showed their loyalty and sent out cheers of “Fight! Team! Fight!” The lead changed hands several times in the last few minutes. At the end of the regular playing time the teams were even and an overtime period resulted. In the overtime period the Wildcats won out.
An interesting sidelight of the game was the fact that four of the K. C. team were former basketball stars at Science. Past, present or future Wildcats put up a good scrap anywhere.
WILDCATS 41; BUECK. LEGION 20
Science Wildcats closed their basketball season with a victory over the American Legion quint of Breckcnridge. I he game was slow and uninteresting from every point of view.
Science took the lead at the start of the game and remained in the front through-out. At the end of the first half the Wildcats were leading 20 to 1 2.
The second part of the game was much like the first the play being ragged. At times the Wildcats would click like a well timed machine. When they were hitting right the Brcck. team had no chance and the ’Cats piled up scores.
Science cheering section gave the veterans on the team a long yell during one of the “time outs.” The “Freshman” also got a yell. The “Freshman” was none other than Marvin “Karl” Delin, “The boy that made good in the big time.” “Karl” was a little peeved about being called a “freshman” hut the people at the game received quite a kick out of the thing. (By “thing” the writer means the yell, not Dchn.)
The Bobkitten’s Season
BUTE’S 1930 edition of baby Wildcats has been one of the most successful seasons any Bobkitten team ever had. They played eight games, winning five, losing two and tieing one. The Bobcats won one game from Lidgerwood high school, two from the Park Region Academy quint, one from Wahpcton high school and one from the Tap-A-Kcg fraternity team. One game with Wahpeton high school ended in a tic. Campbell high school was the only team that heat the Kittens. They turned the trick twice.
They opened their season by playing a tie game with Wahpeton high school. This game was featured by a great second half rally by the Bobcats. At the end of the first half the Wops held a 17 to 3 advantage but the Bobcats came back to gain a 20 to 20 tie at the close of the battle. Because of the lack of time the game was not played off.
Park Region Academy furnished the opposition for the second game. The Bobcats took this game by a 20 to 17 score. Bill Brady and Larry Fisher starred for the Bobcats.
Science Bobcats lost their first game of the season to Campbell 20 to 10. Campbell held the edge throughout the entire game.They led at the end of the first period of play with a 10 to 7 count. Brady again led the Bobcats in play.
In their fourth start of the season the Bobcats downed the Wops 15 to 9. The Bobcats outplayed the Wahpeton boys in all departments of the game. l lo and Brandt were largely responsible in keeping down the Wops score.
Park Region Academy fell before the ‘Kittens for the second time when they came out on the short end of a 22 to 16 score. The Park Region team held the upper hand until the final few minutes of the game when the Bobcats put on a rally that netted them victory. Brandt was the outstanding man for the Bobcats.
Lidgerwood high school fell before the Bobcats in a game at Wahpeton the Science team scoring a 16 to 8 victory. Lauren , and Lennon were the outstanding players on the floor.
Campbell high school won their second game from the Bobcats by gaining the long end of a 27 to 7 count. The game was played on the Campbell floor. McIntyre, Muse, Hemmcrling and Sam Dawson are products of Campbell high school and it is no disgrace to be beaten by a team that has such illustrious men among its backers.
In the final game of the season the Bobcats defeated the Tap-A-Kcg fraternity team by an overwhelming 22 to 8 score. Lennon and Brady were the stellar performers for the Bobcats while Brackin and Brandt were the best for the ‘Keg men.Spring Athletics
Spring football, baseball and tennis were the sports indulged in during the final term of the 1930 year. Coach Bute held spring football practice for three weeks during the month ol April. J his was followed by baseball and tennis for the remainder of the term.
For the first time in its history. Science had spring football. Coach Bute felt that this was necessary in order to get a line on material for next year’s team, and also to teach many new men the game. Over thirty candidates turned out for the practices. Much of the time was spent in teaching the fundamentals of the game. At the end of the regular training period a hard scrimmage was held with the Wahpeton high school team. The showing that the boys made in the scrimmage was very satisfactory to everyone.
Baseball games were played with Mayville, Park Region, Moorhead and Wahpeton Indians. Palmer, a veteran from the 1929 team did the hurling for the Wildcats. Lennon was on the receiving end. The rest of the team was made up of Brandt, Butcher, Brady, Persons, DeMesy, Rudlang, Thurn, Flo, Salic, and Beeson. Cold weather at the start handicapped the team considerably. Considering the conditions the team played and practiced under, one can say that the season was fairly good.
Tennis playing was somewhat handicapped also because of the fact that Science had but one court to play on and this made for crowded schedules. The Wahpeton city courts were used considerably by Science students and this helped to cut down the crowded conditions. Prihoda and Viola and Leola Kinn were the best of the fair sex. Fisher, Beeson, Johnson, Freeman, Peck and Lennon stood out among the men players. During the spring a tennis tournament was held, both the mens’ and women's singles matches being played.dsbe cadgdwdsie
o4 Treasure Under the Earth
IGNITK deposits in the state of North Dakota are confined to the western ha 11 of the state where the workable beds are included within an area of approximately twenty-eight thousand square miles.
Without doubt lignite was used by ranchers and others prior to 1884, the first recorded date of extraction procedure, at which time the Northern Pacific railroad operated mines along its line.
North Dakota produces yearly well over one million tons of lignite with a value of about four million dollars. 'I'lie quantity of lignite in North Dakota is so great that the supply may be considered as practically inexhaustible. Single beds whose extent and thickness have been determined arc known to contain billions of tons. A very conservative estimate of the quantity is five hundred sixteen billion tons.
The workable coal beds, or those over four feet in thickness, which are present in western North Dakota, arc known to number no less than one hundred. Only a few of these are found in one locality, and many of the different coal beds are probably contemporaneous or nearly so. In most cases the lignite seams outcrop along the sides ol the valleys or in buttes, and generally only those coal beds arc known to be present which are near enough the surface to be exposed where streams have eroded their valleys through them.
Many of the coal beds have burned out extensively and very few of the thicker ones have wholly escaped burning. Some were doubtless set on fire by man, others may have caught from prairie fires, but it seems probable that spontaneous combustion has been the chief cause. The heat of the burning lignite has baked and changed the overlying clays and either burned them to red or pink clinker or entirely fused them in clay:like masses which are a distinctive feature of the Pad Lands.Treasure
departmentsThe Junior College
It is interesting to note that this Junior College is one of the lirst of its kind to he organized in the United States. That we have the honor of attending a school which is a pioneer in its line is shown by the fact that at the time of its inception in 1905 there were but two other public Junior Colleges in this country. Proof of the movement’s success is given by the fact that there arc now -J00 Junior Colleges in this country and also that we consider it the ideal place to continue our education in preference to universities or other four-year institutions. When we attend a Junior College we attend a distinctly American institution.
Although the trade department in the past few years has included the majority of the students registered at Science, the Junior College is not to he outdone. With the recent addition of College courses in electrical and aviation engineering this group has been appreciably increased. Its members have organized a live and active club to promote various social functions; they have been prominent is sports and other activities, and add noticeably to the general spirit of loyalty to the school.
We arc proud of the fact that the instruction in all courses is on the same high level as that offered at any of the universities or colleges with the added advantages of smaller classes, more individual instruction and the opportunities to associate with young men and women preparing for positions in most every walk of life.
Phis year the Science Building was rcmodled and new equipment added in order to give the students of Science even greater opportunities for real preparation for their life work.
Phis year's chemistry class is unique in that it boasts of but one girl member, Rosclla Bernard—we imagine Rosella caused her mother endless trouble by using chemical terms such as “sodium chloride” and “acetic acid" for the common household materials which they represent. Rosella, by the way, is a member of the Agawasie staff.
The rooms devoted to chemistry are on the second floor of the Science building where the students have access to a well equipped laboratory and classroom under the direction of Mr. Cavanaugh. The laboratory is stocked with a very adequate supply of chemicals and modern apparatus for excrimental work. It is also well ventilated and provided with hoods for the removal of gases.BIOLOGY LA BO HA TORYThe class this year consists mainly of second year college electrical students including Bill Denk, business manager for this book. Other notable “chemists' are Bud Beeson, outstanding guard and basketball letterman for the past three years; Sheridan McIntyre, editor of this book; Elmer Butcher, our little quarterback who furnished us so many thrills during the football season: and Alvin Stavton another member of the Agawasie staff.
When Tommy appears with his cap at a careless angle, his sleeves rolled up and his face beaming with satisfaction, we know that he has made a good catch of frogs for dissection in biology. Can’t you just hear one of the female members of the class saying, “Oh! Look at the nasty bugs!” as she grows pale, picks up her dissecting intruments and prepares to do the “dirty work"?
Biology, under the able direction of Mr. Cavanaugh is taught under the same principles, for which all the departments of the Science School are noted, that is, to offer standard University courses and to feature such parts as can best be practically applied. The classrooms and laboratory are located on the second floor of the Science Building. The laboratory is unusually well equipped and the student can make the best of his opportunities.
The biology class boasts among its personnel several members of “Who’s Who" including Gretchen Cox, who was elected Miss Science; Agnes Prihoda, most popular; Marion LaBclle, cleverest: Dorothy Stumpf, best scholar; Mildred Hagar, most
beautiful; and Tommy McIntyre, cutest. We also find Kd Nelson, cheer leader and Leona 1 lolthuscn, Agawasie staff member. Evidently a great number of our prominents are interested in knowing just what “makes the animals click”.
Only to mention the library should bring back fond memories to the minds of most of us, who have spent so many enjoyable hours there. Whether these pleasant hours were spent in mental communion with the authors, who are so well represented there, or whether they were spent in the more audible communion with our “pet femme” we shall not venture to say; yet we must admit that the words, “let's have it quiet please” are not entirely unknown to us, and wc have no doubt that Miss Mi rick is secretly hoping for increased “parking space” in the halls.
All in all wc arc proud of our library; proud of its wide selection of books and magazines, which include anything from maga-THE LIBRARYzincs of ;i high literary type to those of a technical nature lor the printer, electrician and plumber; proud also of the line works of art which decorate its walls and proud of our efficient librarian who s often aided us in our selection of reading material.
In addition to reading material the library has acquired a line collection of antiques including lanterns, guns, a warming pan, wool carder, foot warmer and pistols which were formerly the property of Mrs. 1£. H. Carter and were given to her niece and nephew. Miss Alice Persons and C. (i. Persons; not to forget the sword fish of which instructor John Ness is the proud possessor, and which is also part of the collection.
“What did you get lor that total?" A common question in the accounting department, asked again by Hildegarde Diet , as she laboriously tries to strike a balance of her books. A dozen varied answers and then the familiar clatter of numerous Monroe calculators reminds us that rechecking proceedings are in order. The Kinn twins arc an auditing lirm in themselves although there is some question as to which is to be considered the senior partner. They after the fashion of Amos and Andy, “check" and “re-check" until at least two sets of books are identical. The Norsemen, Bol-gen and Johnson, arc scratching their heads in an endeavor to try and figure out how they arc going to declare dividends alter the fashion of their worthy predecessors in the candy business, Peck and Brady Inc. They arc in hope the “No Credit" sign, so much in evidence around their domain will be at least one factor toward that goal. Peek, in another corner, is trying to find out what Mert Brady did with the last four bits they have collected on the Accounts Receivable. McIntyre has a hot job, so hot in fact that he has had to shed his coat and enlist the aid of instructor Masica in order to try and gain his end. His colossal task is that of figuring out the “what with" and “where from" with which the numerous hills attributable to this publication arc to be met. Let's hope he has been able to eliminate the Bad Debt account.
Feeek! ! and it’s all over. The Office Training department lias been photographed and Rita Schaefer will not have to again undergo the ordeal of being “shot" by the cameraman.
Before the filming instrument can be removed we find ourselves in the atmosphere of a typical “big business” office. “Libby” Korf is again busy filing the accumulation of manuscripts of the clay. 1 Iorace Lahren and Izctta Bronson have a mimeograph assignment which must be gotten out today. Irene Tollerude is confronted with the problem of finding that seemingly non-existing error in the Cash Book. Transcription proceedings are taking up the time of the Buus sisters, Gail Dohman, Mildred Grange. Myrtle Oes-trich, Marie Leonhardt, Rita Schaefer and Leonard Bolgcn. l .etta Slraefer and Sadie Larson have several rolls of business music from the president’s office to transform into that reputed type of neat and effective business letter for which they arc noted.
Miss Madden, much in the manner of a floor walker, sees to it that work leaving the practice office is of such a character as to be an asset to the Office Training department of the State School of Science.STENOGRAPHY
?(’ $;v”ce: -“ Bang! Another almost perfect copy has been disfigured for life. “When will I ever catch up.” Thus thinks Tommy Kadlac as he carefully passes judgement upon the possibilities of wielding an eraser over that abominable mark. A misguided linger has been guilty of leaving this ruinous evidence on what might have been a coveted “perfect copy.” No, the careful scrutiny of Miss Walton will never allow that one to go by, thinks the Lankin lad and with a disgruntled look he inserts a sheet of paper preparatory to another attempt. Almost as bad as practicing a music lesson only there is a chance once in a while to sneak in a few words with Hammerschmidt or “Doc” Bidgood. If it wasn’t for some of these girls such as Gladys Haverty and Grace Larson, with their everlasting racing and some of the other speed merchants, among them Doris Stock, it wouldn’t be so hard to keep up. Well, such is life and if our nerves hold out the day will soon come when we will he able to throw out our chests and much after the manner of an army officer display our decorations for what might be termed bravery as well as proficiency. And maybe we will he able to get a chance at that new portable which is to be presented at the end of the term to some premier, and will he proud, member of the Commerce department.bhe cyimwasieTrades
Pimc ami again throughout the school year, this question was asked by people from all departments of the school: Why arc our printers always so deep in thought? The answer remained unsolved until we were enlightened by a visiting printer who spoke at assembly. 11 is statement was as follows: “You printers have a hard time thinking what a hard time you would he having if vou had a hard time.”
The printing shop had the reputation of being the most noisy shop in the school—hut the reason is obvious. This is the one trades shop in which the fair sex will he found. Then, too, above the clatter and chatter could always be heard the commanding voice of Babe Persons showing his authority as a second year student. Babe, however, would be entitled to a certain amount of credit for working after school hours if Adelaide had not chosen to be a journalist. And Adelaide says she would have had better grades if Babe had not returned for the second year's work. The presence of these two folks wasn't conclusive to good work as far as Merle was concerned. Merle devoted a great deal of time attempting to convince “Mista" Rustad that he should take up printing-
“Krenchie” LaBelle believes in the old slogan that “if you smile, the world smiles with you.” Her everlasting smile was always welcomed in the shop. During the noon hour, she would often endeavor to make her smile permeate into the other shops, especially the plumbing shops. Of course, we can not leave out “Major” O'Keefe. He was generally known as the shiek of Science, and though he did good work in the printing shop, we arc of the opinion that he could have done much better work if he would not have spent so much time trying to persuade girls to become journalists.
The electricians this year were an exceptionally busy group, even though Karl Larsson laments that the young men are getting lazy “like the English.”
Nevertheless, idleness is not tolerated in the armature winding department and instructors Barnard and 1 lawk were constantly on guard to see that there were plenty of live, practical jobs lor students interested in this line of work. One of the largest jobsCOMPOSING AND PRESS ROOM
LINOTYPESRA DIOARMATURE WINDINGtackled by this group was the rewinding of a large street car armature from Bismarck, but innumerable smaller armatures and motors were wound throughout the year. The inside wiring group was given the job of wiring and repairing their room for the meter testing convention this spring, and the armature winders gave those who attended, a demonstration on how to locate and test for various motor troubles.
The second year students were goaded on to greater efforts by Karl Larsson who considers it bis duty occasionally to shower bis ire on those unfortunates. Nevertheless, we again have the usual number of practical men going out to fill those positions which only Science trained men can properly fill.
The electricians continue to bold their own in the realm of sports. They boast on the basketball squad: Art Nelson, a valuable man on the team for the past three years; Hddie Johnson, who plays the various positions with equal skill; Jake Hcmmerling, best foul shooter on the squad; Jud Brewster, who was again high scorer in the conference, and Gus Frankc, who proved himself a worthy addition to the team.
Nor were the electricians lacking on the football team. Mere again we find Johnson, Hemmerling and Brewster, in addition to “Butch" Butcher, our elusive quarterback, and I Iusc, a good man on the line.
“Station S. S. S. broadcasting. The next number on the program will be “That Doggone Radio" sung by the entire company"— and Science goes on the air!
You have just been listening to a program broadcast from the radio room of the Science School by means of the short wave experimental transmitter which was built by the radio department under the supervision of Mr. Anderson and Mr. Denk. Many of the parts of the transmitter, including the power supply operated from an A. C. line were built by the department. Several tube testers and an instrument for determining the characteristics of tubes were also built. Considerable attention was given this year to the study of new types of A. C. tubes and their testing, as well as the newer developments in the radio industry.
In the latter part of the year, experiments were begun with a photo-electric or light sensitive cell. It was used chiefly as a laboratory experiment, showing its operation and possibilities along commercial lines.
A new course in Radio Physics offering college credit was in-troduccd this year for students taking college electrical engineering. Although Instructor Anderson found considerable difficulty in keeping the headphones from "Peg'Gardner's cars during the lecture period, this group made rapid progress in radio theory and also tried to learn about television and the talkies.
Our aviation shops probably attracted more attention this year than any other department in the school. Hardly a day passed but some visitors were present to see what was being done in this new field of work. Students from various parts of the country were attracted to this school to make up the total of forty-five people enrolled in the department during the year.
We were pleased with the comment made by a representative from Washington, D. C., who made this statement: “The aviation department is on a fine working basis; there is not another trade school set-up in aviation which is like it. It is efficient and unique.”
The “aviation gang” devoted most of their time to practical production work. One Waco 10 airplane was completely built, one Curtis Robin wing was completely rebuilt, ten other wings were built or rebuilt, and OX 5 motors, “Hissos”, a “Liberty” and an OX 6 were repaired and put in running condition. Besides this, they made about ten pair of airplane skiis.
Art Sampson also offers Hying lessons to all students who wish to take time under him, and Bill Dcjacghcr became a “soloist.” Bill took a ten hour course, and when he soloed, he kept up the school tradition anil did a good job.
While the Commercial students were “sparking," day in and ciay out, about the halls of “Old Main” the auto electricians were busily engaged in coping with sparks from the Auto Electric shop. Second year auto mechanics devoted most of their time to a study of the intricacies of various electrical systems. Our worthy aviators also trecked over to the auto electrical shop to “learn somethin” about ignition systems. It was in this department that “Mac” alias Ben McConville got his first experience as an instructor. I le was called upon to take over the reins while Instructor Hagncson was out for several weeks because of illness. “Mac” got along very well and has considered entering the teaching profession. The Reber brothers shocked many of their buddies out on the aviationaviation assemblingAUTO ELECTRICshop floor hut were always content with, shocking each other in the Auto Electric shop. The mechanics will remember “Mike" ami “Ike" who always furnished bits of humor during the dull moments in the day.
The auto mechanics in both old and new trades buildings spent the year shooting trouble. Occasionally they wandered over into the Aviation Department but for only short periods at a time. Rivalry existed between the departments and it seems that the auto mechanics preferred to have the aviators “stay at home;" the aviators felt likewise. It would not be well to set forth in this annual just what they thought of each other. The auto mechanics and aviators were evenly represented at the Mechanics Club meetings and were given every opportunity to settle matters on the “greased pole," the “mat," or the ring.
Above all we must not forget to give due credit to Art Kilgore who furnished considerable entertainment for Karl Smith's auto repairmen. Early in January a person, no other than E. J. Riley, joined the ranks of the mechanics. All students proceeded cautiously for a time wondering what affiliations this young man might have with “Prexy". The forty fellows enrolled in the Auto Mechanics course devoted most of their time to the complete overhauling of cars in need of repair. One of the mechanics spoke for the group when he said, “We were looking for plenty of practical work and, boy! we sure got it."
John Ness and Pat 1 Icmmcr divided up on this trade for necessities sake. There were so many students there this winter that John did not know what to do, so Pat I lemmer was called on to help. We didn’t know if Pat was of any help in the machine shop, so we asked JJohn Ness, lie immediately told us that Pat was the best machinist that ever hit this country, we went and asked Pat what he thought of John and strange to relate, he said the same thing. We will have to admit that Pat could tell more and better stories than John, but for hat matter, we have yet to see the first one that can keep up with Pat.
“Pat" Manning was usually the main attraction in the machine shop, and it anything unusual happened to harass the instructors, Pat could usually explain the matter. In fact, when Pat didn'tC9 be
show up for class, John Ness instead ol being angry, seemed positively relieved.
Nearly every trade in school was at some time of the day represented in the machine shop, and these classes were not on exactly the best of terms. The instructors were kept on their toes all the time to prevent an auto-mechanic from wrecking a timing disk an aviator was making, or to prevent an aviator from wrecking an armature an electrician was turning down.
At that most students agree that machine shop was the best class they had, and this is the one class they looked forward to. The reason for this was that there were so many students enrolled that it was impossible to keep all of them busy all of the time, so most of them offered the excuse that they had nothing to do: or if they did, they said somebody else was using their lathe, and they could not work just then; so they would go to have a smoke—and most likely forget that they were supposed to have a class.
O X Y-ACKTY LKN E WELD IN G
“Add my name to the list of welders." This was one of the most common requests made by trade students after instruction in oxy-acetylenc welding was added in January, to the variety of trade courses offered at Science. The request came from aviators, auto mechanics, auto electricians, plumbers and electricians who were anxious to learn how to manipulate an oxy-acetylenc welding torch.
Demand for instruction in this department proved beyond a doubt that a popular course of training had been added at Science, wherein the instruction was of real value to the various mechanics and tradesmen. It didn’t take very long for the students in the shop to line! out that it takes time and constant practice to develop correct habits of skill in the welding of various metals and alloys. Instructor Olson demanded neat, acceptable jobs; lie gave freely of his time in “breaking in the gang" as very few had had previous experience.
The aviators spent considerable time on typical jobs that the ground mechanic should he capable of handling satisfactorily. The mechanics handled automobile repair jobs that arc common to every garage. Those who took instruction in welding maintained that they could not mend anything except “broken hearts"—and we all know that many were crushed beyond repair the past year.
AUTO MECHANICSWELDINGPLUMB TNG
Under the tutelage of' instructors I Ioppert ami Diet ., many kinks of the plumbing trade were ironed out in the shop and plumbing class rooms.
We could truthfully sav that brotherly love reigned supreme if it were not for the James brothers. The difficulty lay in the I act that 1 Iarvcy wanted to do the repair work, and he expected Kato to keep him supplied with tools and material, krom information obtained, we arc ready to believe that Ernie Sondrol learned two trades while he was with us. It seems that the James brothers and Ernie kept up housekeeping apartments and Ernie was nominated chief cook. We cannot vouch for his progress in “Home Economics,” but he made a good record as a plumber.
At times this winter, we wondered why the radiators didn r give off more heat on the cold days, but our curiosity was appeased when we learned that fireman Dahlgren had turned plumber.
Jorstad maintained that he could have made more progress and better grades if the “darn aviators” hadn’t “swiped” the plumber's torches continually. You see, Jorstad didn’t want Alc to he the Star of the group.
The boys appeared drowsy at times and their excuse was that Instructor Hoppert’s assignments for night work were too long. They didn’t feel that plumbers should be expected to work nights. 1 lowcver Dietz said that not once did he catch Elvin Nappen nap-pin’. We don’t just understand him.
Our friend of the north, Walter Kcuring of Lampman, Saskatchewan spent considerable time singing praises of his home land, but he hail to admit that they must come to the States to learn “sanitary plumbing.”
It is admitted that we had a good gang in the plumbing shops ibis year, and the instructors arc looking forward to their return.
The trowel wicldcrs went to work this year in a shop that was “fixed up” purposely for them. Most of the hoys in this shop got their biggest treat by surrounding huge breakfasts; as a result, all but two or three of them chose to spend the first two periods of the morning in the Drafting Department where they could rest on the drawing tables until the pancakes had settled. The story is also told that one lad, Bricklaying Johnson, by name, consumed such heavy breakfasts that he was forced to return to bed after the morning meal and then did not report for work untilnoon. We arc also informed that Johnson's habits did not appeal to Coach Svenneby.
Carl Huether had the reputation of being the fast “brick-slinger” in the gang and many of the hoys were nursing worn-out linger tips trying to keep up with him. Victor Blue maintained that Huether’s speed kept him “blue" throughout the course.
Ole Nygaard was the hoy who didn't like “drafts” so he pen suaded Thecde to assist him in bricking up the lower windows in the shop. They did a neat job but Dick Sparrow wouldn’t be surpassed so he conferred with klimek and both decided to leave something as a “memory of this year’s class.” When they had finished, Karl Smith’s Auto Shop was provided with a good tool room. Karl says that he will make it a point to send Sparrow a box of candy next Christmas as a token of appreciation for what the bricklaying hoys had done in helping him prevent the further loss of tools.
Interviews with the bricklayers proved conclusively that they enjoyed the work immensely except for one thing: They didn’t like the idea of having to change shoes before reporting to the weekly assembly.
110MK KCONOMICS (Sewing)
“1 low little of the cares and worries of a housekeeper you who click away at typewriters know.” This statement was made by Car-lie Stam, our brilliant and energetic seamstress, and this statement was seconded by all the other future housekeepers.
The students kept the full force of sewing machines continually humming with the making of clothes for outsiders, themselves, various ba .aars and aids. Then the aviators—if it isn’t a right wing to make a cover for, its an aileron, or tail surface. One day, Alice Matuska was heard to say. “My faith in Aviation is decreasing day by day. 1 wonder if I’ll ever get that title I deserve for making wing-covers.”
Under the careful guidance of Miss I'orkner, who sees to it that the seams are correctly made, the wings properly sewed, and Vernon Petty’s trousers beautifully patched, the girls have little time for gossip. But at that, some of the girls still have to puzzle out how the hemstitchcr works.
Gus Raguse was often heard to murmur about the unfairness of the aviators. 1 le would like to know how he can possibly find an excuse to travel over to Miss Korkner's sewing class like the aviators do. I le is now seriously thinking of joining the aviation classBRICKLAYINGEVENING CLASS FOR BUILDERSif Ik can make Art Sampson promise to let him make all of the
wing covers. .
"During the winter term, the ranks ol the would-be sewers
were raised too. There was one period every day in which this
whole group as together with their sewing, hemming, seaming,
stitching, singing, laughing and talking, and seeing that this class
was made up of girls we think it was mostly talking.
EVENING SCHOOL FOR BUILDERS
When we look over the past year we are inclined to feel that Gottfried Anderson, our genial instructor of Drafting and Estimating, should he christened with a new middle name. After a thorough search through Webster’s, the word “Indefatigable” seemed to he the most appropriate and fitting for him. Anderson evidently didn’t feel that the supervision of the building of the new Wahpcton school plus the handling of classes at Science from 8:00 a. m. to 4:00 p. m. furnished enough work, so he strutted forth and enticed fourteen local building tradesmen to enroll in an evening of this group were held on Tuesday and Friday evenings. In class in Plan Reading and Estimating for builders. The meetings commenting on this new activity, Anderson said that his one and only problem was to try to hold Bill McClintock and Fred Finch in class on certain evenings when the Wildcat Basketball team was in action on the home Hoor.
Seriously speaking, however, this class is unique in that it marks the beginning of an adult education program for tradesmen which is to be expanded yearly as the need arises. There is no question but that the greatest immediate return to a local community comes from the organization of evening classes for adults who are in need ol additional knowledge and help in their respective trades. Certainly such a program brings about equality of opportunity inasmuch as it provides instructon and help for adult tradsemen at a time when they need it and can use it.

‘The Weddtng of Rain-in-the-Face
This is the Sioux Our fathers knew.
IONISERS now living remember when Red Cloud terrorized Minnesota, when Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and many other followers roamed the Dakota plains. Their last notable battle was the annihilation of Custer's force at the Little Big Horn, June 25, 1876.
Our peaceful looking friend whom we see getting married on crutches is reputed to have personally killed General George Custer and to have cut the heart from the breast of Colonel Tom Custer, the General’s brother. This savage act was done in revenge for the imprisonment of Rain-ln-The-Kacc on conviction of murder of white men several years before. The news having gone east that the grisly trophy was the heart of General Custer, Longfellow wrote “7'hc Revenge of Rain-in-the-Face” under this impression.
Longfellow tells of the ambush, the battle and the High? of the Indians as other forces appeared.
“Hut the foemen fled in the night And Rain-in-the-Face in his flight Uplifted high in air As a ghastly trophy, bore The brave heart that beat no more Of the white chief with yellow hair.”
As a matter of fact the body of General Custer was the only one left unmutilated after the battle. Rain-in-the-Face in later years met a minor, ironic punishment, as narrated in the story accompanying the opposite picture.
“Chief Rain-in-the-Face and wife taken on their wedding day at Standing Rock.
“In 1877 while Rain-in-the-Face was hunting buffalo, his horse fell and a Colt revolver he got in the Custer battle was discharged hitting him in the knee. I le was thus crippled for life with a stilHy drawn up knee. The crutches were presented to him by his friend I). F. Barry.'’
The photograph is copyrighted by Mr. I). F. Barry and re-printed here by his permission.
Rain-in-the-Face, after the Custer battle lied to Canada. I le returned and surrendered to General Miles in 1881. lie lived quietly on the Standing Rock reservation until bis death September 12. 1005.C9 he

WILDCAT POLO TEAM SWAMPS THE NOMANS
In spite ol' the terrific cold, and slowed down by a muddy field, the Wildcats grappling squad won a decisive .8 to 88 victory over the hated rivals of the North. The battle started with Johnson sending the ball through both arches to hit the stake for the first blood. Brewster recovered and after shaking oil' all pursuers, made a long shot from mid-floor. In the second round, Brackin knocked a nice hit, making it possible for Red to throw his man and gave I'etc Masica a chance to put the ball in the side pocket for the second counter. Here the Nomans rallied and a -10 yard run with an uppercut and straight right, left Summerville hanging on the ropes. Major O'Keefe returned the ball to the one yard line, and holed out in one, causing the crowd to demolish several sections of the new asbestos bleachers. Here the Wildcats once more rallied and Elo paddled madly around the track to advance the lead by use of the breast stroke and back-hand swing. Dehn smashed over the basket with the use of a half-Nelson and the Wildcats emerged victors from the contest in great form. Mr. Cavanaugh is much pleased with the showing of the Rifle team in this contest.

If an Eastern College professor had not discovered one of his STARR students reading a magazine of the BRAND that tells of thrilling adventures in the wild and wooly west this story would never have been told. He took the obscene literature from the student and gave him instructions to gather MOORE DADA on Greek philosophy. But the gaudy covered magazine lying on his desk amid the weighty volumes of philosophy fascinated him. He tried to HARDEN himself against the temptation to peruse its contents. He would not DEHN to appear interested in the vulgar matter in the presence of his students but when they left he decided to read the magazine and censor it. In this decision LIES the cause of the Professor's awakening spirit o! adventure. Tales of the PETTY adventures of SQUIRES and KNIGHTS he had read but they were tame in comparison to the stories 01 LEERing GUNmen and blood and GORE that he read in the thrilling magazine.
His imagination was fired; he saw himself HUNTing big game in the West. He joined the Isaac WALTON League and listened to the LIES of EISHERmen and HUNTcrs with absorbing interest. He heard vague rumors that Wildcats and Bobcats roamed the campus of the Stats School of Science in Wahpeton. North Dakota should be the scene of his summer vacation activities. He would go WESTENSEE real Wildcats!
It was hard to concantrate on Greek philosophy for the remainder of the school term but he kept silent for he DURST not excite the derision of hie students by letting them know about his change of heart, nor would he tell the henPECKED husbands whom he knew, his intentions for they would surely turn GREEN with envy and his bachelor independence would MADDEN them.
He purchased a GUNN, a college ‘‘flivver,” a FRYEing pan and othci supplies. Then he GLADIy BIDGOOD-bye to all the PERSONS whom he knew and started out to raise KA1N.
he traveled over many a HILL ar.d BUTE and road of STONE. The water in waysids streams was RILEY but he quenched his thirst with lemon SOURS that he bought in the small BKKGs along the way. He was KING of HUNTers, an expert EISHERmen and was HANDY at COPPIN” food from FIELD and stream.
When the professor came to Hors-sshoe Island near Breckenridge, he saw s WOLF glare at him with BALEful eyes but he did not disturb it for he was HUNTing big game. When he crossed ovsr the BLUE waters of the Red River, he began to inquire the way to the Science School campus, lie said he was looking for the Wildcats. People gazed at his unshaven countenance and mentally concluded that he too looked just like a Wildcat.
When he came to the Science School campus, he parked his RUSTAI) flivver beside Art Nelson’s limousine, took his GUNN and marched about with a LORDIy HERR. As he stood before the Gym, GUNN HANDY, he heard a terrific din that sounded like the roar of savage beasts.
“WhaVs that?” he asked the MAJOR. “Oh, the Wildcats are in there,” answered the Major and the professor trembl’d. But when the door burst open, he could only STARIN wonder for the Wildcats were only a pack of hungry athletes on their way to join the bread line at Burch HALL.

Coach Bute had quite a battle teaching the new manipulators of the pig skin the fundamentals of the cruel game of football.
Jrst before ths crucial game with Wahpcton High. Coach Bute was sneaking to his men who were assembled in the huddle, "Now men, he said, "lb’ idea of the game is to kick, scratch, bite, pull and foul your opponents every time you get a chance. If you can’t kick the ball kick the opponent.”
With these words Coach Bute slapped Captain Major O’Keefe on the back, handed him the hall and ordered them on the field.
"To Hell, with the ball, "replied O’Keefe, tossing it to one side, "Lets get on with the game.”

DISASTROUS KIRK BLAZES Al) BUILDING
A cigar carelessly tossed into the wastebasket of Riley’s office resulted in the burning of the first ten floors cf the Ad building last n'.tc. All the antique furniture and rooms for which the building was known across the country, were destroyed. A huge crowd gathered around the blazing structure and in a spirit of joy and jollification thoughtlessly tossed passing Fords into the fiainss to assist the firemen. At the suggestion of the Deans, Cavanaugh and Petersen, the party was turned into an all-college weiner roast. The dormitory gladly contributed the r.scessary dogs. Every one seemed to
enjoy themselves in spite of the fact that all the semester grades were de-
stroyed. Classes will be held in telephone booths until the new million dollar structure is built.

HIL1. GIVES DANCING INSTRUCTIONS“The Old Pathfinder”
One Sunday morn, on picnic bent, On final fishing; trip intent,
To Minnesota in a hurry Went Mac and Satterlce and Currie, And Sat he knew the way to take To got ’em quickly to Beers Lake; Let’s rather say, he thought he knew it.
But when the test came, how he blew it!
For, turning right instead of left,
Of every guiding mark bereft,
They rambled south, they rambled north
And cast and west and back and forth, Till, wearied of the maze and sick, They stopped and hailed a local hick.
Unto the rube said Shortcut Sat,
“I wonder where in hell we’re at?” To Shortcut Sat the rube says he,
“I don't know where in hell you be, And judgin’ by your face I wonder How you get anywhere, by thunder!”
“Where goes the road ?” again Sat led. “It goes both ways,” the farmer said, “But if you go the way you came And find a good road take the same. If ye take one ye think is wrong Ye may get somewheres. Well, so long.”
Following these directions lucid They took took some winding trails and deuced High hills and—short the tale to make—
They finally came unto Beers Lake, And ate some sausages and bread And then drove home and went to bed.
Surprised was Currie, also Mac,
That Sattcrlee could get them back In time to hit a little hay Before there dawned another day. This moral makes the story’s close: “Follow a road map, not your nose.”

2nd Bell: Because when you get the first one the rest are easy.

Mr. McMillan: When do leaves begin to turn?
LaVern Ottis: The night before
Art says: She wasn’t a pilgrim, but she sure made progress.
Karl Larsson (in his meter testing class): When the cat’s away the mice will play.
Eddie Johnson: Yeah! Maybe the cats didn’t have such a punk time either.
Dada: Did you get a hair cut? Snyder: No, I just got my ears moved down an inch.
She: Haven’t I met you before? Bud: Possibly, sometimes I get a little careless where I go.
McNotch: I started out on the theory that the world had an opening for me.
Eddie: And you have found it? McNotch: Yes, I’m in the hole now.

Palmer: Art just dealt himself

Nelson: Listen Irish, don’t try and pull your crooked stuff on me. I know what cards I dealt you.

LENNON WIRES P.D.Q.BABE MAKES HIS DEBUT
Tho Agawasie has decided to favor the folks with a few pointers on the leading institutions ot the campus. Just to build up a good healthy interest in this sort of thing, we're net going to give it to you all at once - - both barrels at once is too many.
Before we plunge into this thing, we’d like to correct a false impression due to a rumor which has been spread about to the effect that the Tap-A-Kegs arc operating a still in their basement. Anyone can see the falsehood of it by watching a truck (Tut, tut Ccrisa, it’s only the milk man) unload in front of their house at eight-thirty every morning.
Well, the Tap-A-Kegs are all right, that is, they must be, as nobody has as yet been able to figure out just what was the matter with them. The boys have their large “army” and “Big Gun” Brackin to manage to keep the club m the limelight once in a while. By the way, folks, the “army” roll at the last census numbered 36,749 in round numbers, and next week they start the round •obin system of Tap-A-Keg tag smokers so that by the fall of 1930, both actives and pledges will be in a position to call each other by their given names, instead of using the rather terse epithets now employed.
“I’m not doing this on my own account,” said the forger as he passed oval- the bad check.
Eddie Johnson gives this view of what ho gained in school: Well, anyhow I’m holding my own; I didn’t have a thing when I started and I haven't anything now.
Brovold: What’s your name? Frankc: Gu—Gu—Gu—Gus. Brovold: All right, I’ll call you Gus for short.
“Red” DeMcsy: What's that hole doing in your pants?
Thompson: Showing my underwear.Evolution
Aire six—Father gives Willie roller skates.
Age twelve—Father gives Willie bicycle.
Age eighteen—Father gives Willie college education.
Age twenty three—College gives Wiilic diploma.
Age twenty four—Father gives Willie job.
Age twenty four years, three days —Father gives Willie up.
Mr. Dopey McNotch Bordwick thinks that a ring in a pig’s nose means that he is engaged.
Judge: How many times have you got up before me?
Currie: Don’t know. At what time do you get up?
D:hn: What’s the height of your ambition ?
Brewster: Don’t knew exactly but she comes about to my shoulder.
Vera (relating to her travels): And in Florence I visited the Pitti Palace.
Ben: Oh, did ’urns?
The Latest Excuse
“You can’t flunk me, professor. Pm insane."
“He is only a coal dealer’s son, but oh! how he can keep things warm."
“She’s only a tire dealer’s daughter but have a squint at her attire."
“He is only a surgeon’s son, but he himself is some cut-up."
A woman’s mouth is usually compared to a rose-bud, but a rose-bud is usually closed.
“She is only a banker’s daughter, but she can certainly draw the interest."
Gus Raguse was seen, at dinner one night, joining a small group of friends who were in the midst of an animated discussion.
“Oh, Mr. Raguse!” exclaimed one of the ladies. “You are just in time to settle our argument. What is the most beautiful thing in the world ?’’
“A beautiful woman," replied the gallant Raguse, without hesitation.
But his companion seemed shocked at his levity. “1 contend," she said, seriously, “that sleep is the most beautiful thing."
Gus: Well, next to the most beautiful woman sleep is.

ORTH Dakota, during the recent years of her progress, has discovered a new industry in which she can compete with the other states of America. It has been found that this state with her vast prairies, large grain fields and good climate is especially well adapted to turkey raising.
Most of the turkeys produced in North Dakota, that is, in this part of the state, are raised in small groups. There are,however, numerous large turkey ranches distributed throughout the northern parts in which flocks of from two upward to five or six hundred arc herded about in much the manner of cattle or sheep. A good profit, ranging from one to several dollars per head, has acted as a very great stimulant to the turkey raising industry with the result that ever increasing numbers arc being marketed each year.
It must be admitted that the northwestern turkey does not yet command the choice price on the market but it does command one of the highest. Maryland and Virginia birds arc rated highest and northwestern fowls follow closely, outranking in price that offered for those from the bar and Middle West and South.
Turkey shipments from Richland county alone have increased more than twelve per cent during the last year thus exemplifying the statewide trend in the industry. In Cass where turkeys were shipped in small local shipments a few years ago they are now sent eastward by carload lots where we can be proud of seeing them blaze forth on the holiday menu as “Roast Young North Dakota Turkey.” The domesticated turkey which is raised in North Dakota is derived from the Mexican variety. It has lost the grace, agility, and brilliancy of color so characteristic ol its ancestors but in other respects it has been but little modified. In habits it is still a half wild creature though it has been domesticated for four centuries.Doesn ’t He

Up to Date Mary
Mary had no little lamb.
Like she had long years ago.
Hut she has a pair of calves,
That she delights to show,
They go with her to school each day As faithful calves should do,
Where Mary draws a teacher’s pay, For imparting knowledge true.
Ye pedagogues of other days Would deem her calves too shocking, But Mary says it always pays To buy a high priced stocking.
And Mary wears expensive gowns, That arc very light and airy,
Not so showy for their cost,
Hut they show a lot of Mary.
