O the spirit of the modern
youth, inspired, enlightened,
awakened to the possibil-
ities embodied in the future,
this twenty-second volume
of the Bison is dedicated.
AY the manifold activities
and the ever-increasing per-
sonnel in this ascendant
stage of the State College
be truly reflected in this,
the IQBO Moclernistie Bison.
Scenic Beauty, an everfchanging pageantry of riotou
and subtle color, in its lovely nuances and
shadings, in its infinite depiction of nature's
handiwork. lends a delightful background
for the ultimate inst i l lin g of the
cultural in the life of the
individual. May the obvious
cultural value of physical
environment act as a
motivating force in
of the future

THE BOARD GF ADMINISTRATION
Our governing board rejoices with lyou, your stu'
I dent body, and faculty on the continued growth of
your institution. The substantial place of an institution
like yours in the economy of the state is no longer a
matter for debate. The place of the scientist and the
economist in agriculture as in other practical arts has
been more clearly demonstrated in the last decade than
ever before. Chemistry, which not so long ago was
considered an abstract science, is now recognized as the
most practical of all sciences. Plant breeding we now
know to be the basis of all practical developments in
plant species. Home economics is rapidly coming into
its own. The work of your experiment stations and
extension department grows in appreciation among those
interested in the development of our principal state resource, agriculture. Your
economists are called to Washington to give expert advice in the formulation of
tariffs affecting agricultural products. Your needs in the building line are coming
to be better understood by our legislative bodies. I am satisfied that your college
has a brilliant future. Your alumni body will continue to take increased pride
and interest in its development as the years go by. May every success attend your

Looking forward is always most pleasing to the mind just as distant views
are most pleasing to the eye. It is a very happy thought to make the development
of our college and its future the central theme for the 1930 Bison. Since the col'
lege was in fact created in 1890 we will be just 40 years of age in 1930. Thinking
of S0 years as the time for our Golden Jubilee, I shall attempt to look into the
future only up to 1940, realizing how far I may miss the mark in picturing our
development in that period.
First let us consider the student body, for after all the college was established
for the students and our first concern at all times is the welfare of the students.
Each year the number has increased from 100 to 150. By 1930 we shall have
approximately 1500 students and by 1940, when we celebrate our Golden Jubilee,
our enrollment will be 2500, as a minimum.
During this short period just ahead the faculty will increase by leaps and
bounds both in number and in preparation.
Turning to the buildings on the campus, by
1930 we shall almost certainly have added the
wings to Science Hall, rebuilt the power plant,
built at least one of the wings planned for the
central agricultural building and completed a
men's dormitory. Before our Golden Jubilee in
1940 progress in building will be realized in
all of the eight schools and the library.
This is not merely a dream, but a definitely
well worked out plan which is being brought
into actuality little by little each year and will
even more rapidly develop now that the pref
liminary adjustments have been made.

. ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
This brief reference to the Alumni and Former Student Association is dedicated
to the modern deity, Whoopee, and to athletic supremacy, both of which will
certainly invade our institution in due time if the theme of this book will make
the rightful impression on the readers.
The Alumni Association values highly the splendid democratic student spirit
manifested every place on the campus and which is so well illustrated in the title
and makefup of this book. In other words, it lauds the spirit of youth which
invariably stimulates institutions and everything else with which it comes in contact
to greater material and spiritual progress. Upon making your debut in the outside
world, the College Alumni Association solicits your affiliation, your enthusiasm, and
your interest in the organization, as well as your cooperation for promoting projects
which are in the interest of your Alma Mater.
While you are a student at this institution, you are urged to acquaint your'
self with the alumni program and the immediate
future needs of your school. After leaving
school you will be better able to work for these
matters. The Alumni Association represents the
will of the graduates and former students of the
State College. You are requested to feel free
to express your opinions to the organization, to
cooperate in keeping it modernistic, and to
help to promote college improvementsg efficient
personnel, better curriculum, better equipment,
better service, more buildings, and better college
sports. Always remember that when you better
your school, you increase your own assets.
DEAN OF MEN
Faculties may adopt rules for courses and grades, but they cannot create by
edict the elusive things called intelligence, integrity, honor, loyalty, and ideals.
The imagination, courage, and devotion of the few become, in a measure, the
possessions of all. Teachers raise questions, define issues, offer suggestions, set
personal examples, but, in the end, student leadership formulates the public opinion
which is embodied in traditions, values, and college community character.
For the future, I hope that a greater progress will be made in the deepening
sense of student responsibilities, that the good name of the college will always be
protected by proper student behavior, that business-like, honest methods in student
finances will always be approved, that a thoroughly honest attitude in scholarship
tests will always be supported, that an unwavering policy of good faith in inter'
collegiate agreement and of selffrespecting sportsmanship will be followed, that
appeals in behalf of worthy causes will be met in a generous way, that men and
V women who, from the world of thought and
action, bring you real messages of social
sympathy and spiritual faith will be heartily
welcomed, that these problems and many others
will challenge your sense of justice, your
courage, and your seriousness of purpose.
Personally I have full confidence in our
present generation of students. I believe that
the young men and women of our campus
will work together for a kind of college life
that will inspire its members to keener intellif
gence, more sympathetic comradeship, a more
vivid sense of duty, and a nobler sense of
DEAN CF WOMEN
Amongst the significant developments in recent years in educational institutions
has been a rather abrupt change in the attitude on the part of adults and especially
college faculty towards the problems that concern the young people in college.
Formerly after the registration period and perhaps a 'Lbig sister" tea or an all'
college mixer, both sponsored by the organizations, the college freshman was
left to go his own way. Not so today, however, for the freshman is, upon his
entrance to college, of tremendous importance. Everything possible is done to
help the new student find himself in his strange and bewildering environment.
Our own experience last fall in an orientation program is evidence of the success
of such an undertaking. From this small beginning we may look forward to an
orientation program which will supplement merely acquainting him with the
technique of college life.
Further evidence of the interest on the part of adults toward college students
is expressed in the interest manifest everywhere for the housing of students,
in the carrying out of a health program for the student body, in the supporting of
student activities on the campus, and in
inaugurating personnel work. The State College
is taking its place among forwardflooking instituf
tions in the development of these new adult
interests in the college youth remarkably well,
and there is no doubt that it will not continue
In these and other various ways the school
is making notable progress in improving condi'
tions for the student body. But the faculty
is not doing this alone. There is close co'
operation between faculty and students, there
is that keen appreciation and intelligent under'
standing of each other without which no college
Dice Stevens McCaul Scranton Thomton R. C. Miller
The modernistic note in college education in America was struck when Senator
Morrill laid the foundation which made possible college education in agriculture
and the mechanic arts. The School of Agriculture in this college has been ringing
the changes on that note ever since the college was established in 1890. That note
has been muffled at times as financial stress has limited the ambitions of a far'
seeing faculty and enthusiastic student body, but during the later years it has rung
clear and loud, inviting the youth of North Dakota to listen to this call: "Know why,
that will teach you how and when." As the L'why" is acquired, so grows the stu'
dent in the science of agricultureg as the L'how" and the 'Lwhenn develop, so grows
the student in the art of agriculture.
When the bell rings in the Department of Agricultural Economics, a sophomore
is found trying to strike a balance on a set of books in farm accountsg he is after
the "why" of financial success or failure. As the gong sounds in the Department
of Agricultural Engineering, a junior looks up from his task of designing a dairy
barn adapted to the climate of North Dakota. The whir of the bells finds the
senior in entomology intent upon the life history of the grasshopper in order that
he may discover methods for its control. The melody of this new note in edu'
cation is in tune with the tapftap of the hammer and the ripfrip of the saw as
AND ITS FUTURE
another junior builds his model poultry house. A proud freshman looks up from
his "close inspection" of a ring of fat steers just as this new note in education sings
out to him the reason why better beef steaks could be cut from steer No. 1 than
from steer No. 3, The senior, carefully weighing his colony of white rats from day
to day, listens more sharply than ever before to the "vitamin" note in animal
nutritiong vitaminfdeficient diets in man or beast have become real matter of concern
to this modernistic inquirer after truth.
The freshman, scratching his head over an English theme, learns to put his
thoughts in tune, the art of expression becomes an instrument on which he will
then ring the changes through his entire life. The sophomore, peering through his
microscope, discovers that the tiniest of notes may set into vibration mighty forces
for good or evil, for these minute bacteria with which he plays are potent forces
in agriculture, and he learns to direct the good ones toward useful ends and to
control the evil ones.
Physical, biological, social, and economic science ring out their notes of truth
in the service of that most modernistic of men, the farmer of North Dakota.

SCIENCE AND LITERATURE

Metzinger Whedon Doefr Hunsaker Hunter
The School of Science and Literature is the mixing bowl of the college. At
the outset of his career here, every student finds that he has many of his subjects
in this school, for all schools feel that their students must have English, and many
require mathematics, botany, Zoology or geology, while history, economics, foreign
languages, and public discussion, if not on the required lists of every school, are
among the popular electives. Most of these lines of work have their headquarters
and many of their classes in Science Hall, which is accordingly one of the crowded
buildings on the campus, so crowded in fact that both students and faculty are look'
ing forward eagerly to the completion of the remaining wing of the building at an
early date. Then it will be possible to bring back the History Department from
Engineering Building where it has been marooned in rather alien surroundings for
two years and to give the Geology Department space again in the building where it
functioned with botany and Zoology for many years in its earlier history. Students
of public discussion will continue to go for their work to the Administration Build'
ing where recent enlargement gives that department a unique and commodious
group of rooms centering about the Little Country Theater.
In addition to affording an opportunity to the students in the six other technical
and professional schools on the campus to master the common tools of their trades
AND ITS FUTURE
and have access to such elements of civic and liberal education as their curriculums
allow, the School of Science and Literature enables the student to lay the foundation
for professions not represented in the college or even in the educational institutions
of the state. Accordingly there are always registered in this school many students
who find in the equipment for teaching the natural sciences and technology their
opportunity to prepare for their professional training in medicine and dentistry.
Ordinarily two years are required for this preliminary work but three or four are
advised by some of the stronger schools. The two years of preflaw work are taken
here by many students. A business career is the objective of an increasing number,
for which they take one to four years with major interest in economics. As their
four years develop, a considerable number of students registered in this school ind
themselves most interested in high school teaching, for which they are eligible by
taking as electives at the college the education subjects required by the state law.
By choosing the advanced course in military some of the men on graduation secure
appointment as officers in the United States Military Service.
Thus the two or three hundred students registered in Science and Literature
ind themselves busy along side ten or twelve hundred students registered in the
technical schools and all at work under a growing faculty recruited from outstandf
ing institutions of the country. Students make valuable contacts and prepare for
many varied careers.

The future can be envisaged only by considering the past and contemplating
the forces and the trend of the present. Like the engineer who is often enabled
to draw accurate conclusions by extending a curve beyond the range of his data,
so may we, perhaps, by plotting against time the resultant of those factors that
have motivated and are motivating the School of Mechanic Arts, exterpolate its
trajectory beyond the limit of the present. Such charting beyond the margin of
the present indicates that the trend of the curve is distinctly concave upward and
is forming between itself and the base line a rapidly increasing area that is a
measure of growing achievement and service.
What, then, are the main characteristics of the ordinate in our graph, with
zero as the origin back in 1890, that shall justify projecting the curve into the
future and along the path indicated?
In attempting to evaluate our composite ordinate we find that the School of
Mechanic Arts has enjoyed a steady growth in students, equipment, and prestige
until it has become one of the larger and better equipped schools of engineering
in the North Central group of states. The success of its alumni, the readiness
AND ITS FUTURE
with which its graduates obtain promising positions in industry, the painstaking
efforts of an enthusiastic faculty, and the careful selection of equipment have all
contributed toward gaining merited recognition for the School of Mechanic Arts
as a good school of engineering.
The School of Ivlechanic Arts congratulates itself on being located in a region
where is found the best raw material for the making of engineers. The quality
is unquestionably here and indications point to the fact that the quantity will inf
crease from now on. That the demand for this forthcoming excellent supply' of
engineers will be sufficient is clear from a simple knowledge of the trend of industry.
Another important component which is certain to powerfully direct the
trend of our curve upward is that engineering methods and concepts are rapidly
Ending their way into business and nearly every walk of life,-even in government,
for an engineer has become the executive of this nation.
Viewed from any angle and measured by any standard the conclusion appears
obvious that, with a iust and fair share of the federal and state funds that are to
go into the future development of this college, the School of Mechanic Arts and its
future will be all that this forecast implies.

The future of any school or college will be affected naturally by the develop-
ment of the teaching profession of the country and, indeed, throughout the world.
What the next 25 years will bring forth of signincance to education, no one, of
course, can foresee, but that important developments will occur no one is likely to
deny. As society makes new demands for education, the schools must respond.
Change appears possible with reference to appreciation of educational values
both by teachers and by the public. The development of individuals rather than
the teaching of subjects is an ideal to be more fully realized in school systems. The
teacher of tofmorrow will, let us believe, be especially characterized by perception
of individual needs and values and be less and less mechanical.
In addition to change in instructional ideals and some reappraisal of instructors'
qualiiications, a change of economic status for the teaching group may be expected.
Nothing contributes so fundamentally and extensively to national Wealth as does
education, and the teacher has a valid claim to adequate allotment from the vast
social income. Readjustment of salary scales and better provision for support after
the retirement of the teacher may be expected through state and federal action within
the next few years.
AND ITS FUTURE
Applied to our own institution the foregoing views imply reiinements of prof
gram and expansion of work for the training of teachers, with promise of a steadily
increasing enrollment of students who see in education in the future one of the
greatest of iields of employment.
As the trend of the times is toward higher skills and factual and scientific
studies, colleges of our type should be found in the front ranks of institutions for
the training of teachers for the public schools. Perhaps no institution is better
fitted to contribute to scientific outlook through the public schools than is the
land grant college. More ample facilities will naturally come into existence as
time passes to cope with the increase in students.
A short look ahead shows very favorably for the work in education at the
college. More and more the public schools will be brought into contact with the
college through the presence of our graduates. With larger numbers, larger is
the opportunity of making contributions to those qualities essential for social hygiene
and the preservation of the best traditions of civilizationg for in the long run, as
teachers are, so is the state,
Future educators coming from class

A significant present day fact regarding the home is the fact that it is changing.
But the home today is a more sensitive social institution than we are wont to
think. It is true that it is moving away from what it was, toward something that is
to be, but, during this marked transition period of home and family, training for
home life has forged ahead and progressed by leaps and bounds.
The number of home economics training schools and departments has increased
and the number of women in training has more than doubled within the past five
years. The modern girl above everything else wants to be efficient and is willing
to analyze her own problems and think through her future, settling for herself
and the kind of training she needs for efficiency on her job. Because of the talk
we hear about women in business and women's economic independence we some'
times think girls of today are drifting away from home life and home interests.
Not so. There are today as many girls interested in the home and all it stands
for as there were 25 or even 50 years ago. In those periods women who did
not enjoy housekeeping were forced to do it anyway because that was
"woman's work," and it was practically the only place for her. Today, if a
girl does not like housework and does enjoy another interest more, she can conf
tinue her career and supervise her home. But she must be efficient. She must
know what home management, child training, and family feeding involves. The
necessity for this kind of information has made many women take up the study
AN D ITS FUTURE
of home life even though they continue a musical, art, or other classical type of
college education. Thus has home economics developed. The social and economic
phases of family life have attracted the modern girl. She knows she can likely
hire her cooking done, that she can buy almost as reasonably her clothing ready
made as it can be made in the home. But no one but she herself can manage the
family budget well, or train her children as she wishes them to be trained, or build
up the kind of home life and environment that meets her standards and approval.
The modern girl wants to be the manager of her home and every girl wants
a home sooner or later. She has all faith in the home and as deep a feeling for it
as did the girl in any past generation. In addition to this she is capable, trained,
and an independent thinker.
The greatest hope any home economics department can have today is to keep
an openfminded attitude toward our modern girl, keep abreast of her thinking
powers, and help her to see home life with all its modern trends and opportunities,
then give her the training which fits her into the home tofday and not try to fit her
into the type home of her grandmother.
The North Dakota State College has a modern course in home economics
arranged to meet the girl of tofday and the greatest value placed upon our stock
is that the graduates are making good and living useful lives in the state and country
wherever they are located.

Empedocles and other ancient philosophers regarded the four elements, air,
water, earth, and fire, as properties of primordial matter. Each of these elements
with its two of the four qualities, warmth, dryness, cold, and moisture, and ether,
to the ancient philosopher, furnished a sufficient basis to explain all phenomena of
Aristotle, the father of science, taught that reason alone cannot form science.
He observed things and propounded and discussed the general laws of nature. So
great was his dominance of thought that the spell or tradition was not broken until
the character of mind we have inherited today led us to rational thinking. It is a
simple state of mind which refuses to take any man's word as final. The appeal
today to observe, to investigate, to experiment, and to verify is the basis of every
Eightyfnine elements are the foundation stones of some 800,000 known different
combinations, whose diversity of utilization has touched every known human activity.
Medicinals, engineering materials, agricultural aids and conveniences, all manufactured
articles, home necessities and luxuries and, in fact, every inanimate object with which
we come in contact today has been created or has had its value enhanced by the
magic touch of chemistry.
Chemistry is the keynote in the arch of our modern civilization. Great as has
been its past achievements, the surface has only been scratched. Yesterday belongs
AND ITS FUTURE
to the mechanical engineer. Tomorrow more than today, as he builds on the
discoveries in chemistry, belongs to the chemical engineer.
The School of Chemistry and Technology at the North Dakota State College
has been doing its bit in furthering chemistry by giving to the country the best
prepared paint chemists. Eightyffive and three tenths per cent of our graduates
occupy positions as chemists, factory superintendents, technical directors, and
technical salesmen, with large industrial manufacturers of paints, varnishes, and
lacquers. Some four and five-tenths per cent are engaged in teaching chemistry in
high schools and colleges, while the remaining ten and twoftenths per cent are folf
lowing nonfchemical pursuits.
Through untrammeled imagination, verified by experiment, the modern chemist
has established the existence of the electron, the atom, and the molecule. From
the three elements, air, earth, and water which are not elementary in structure,
and through fire, a fourth element, a manifestation of energy, has the chemist of
tofday segregated some 89 forms of matter which constitute the structure of our
By 1940, the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the North Dakota State
College, the Department of Chemistry will have developed the Eelds of organic and
biological chemistry to as high a state of perfection and eminence as it now occupies
in the field of paint, varnish, and lacquertechnology.
Chemistry students and their workshop
Some 60 years ago there was discovered between the knees of a mummy,
disinterred from the Theban Necropolis, a scroll 22 yards long and about 12 inches
wide of yellowishfbrown papyrus of the finest quality. The date assigned to this
papyrus is about 1552 B. C. At this time Moses was tending the flocks of his
fatherfinflaw, Jethro, the Midianite, on the plains at the foot of Mount Horeb.
This papyrus contains recipes and the names of more than '7OO drug substances
used during that period for the alleviation of disease. Thus from time immemorial,
man, civilized or uncivilized, in all parts of the world has made use of animal,
vegetable, and mineral substances, termed by the generic name of drugs, to make
life more pleasant and comfortable for the sick and afflicted.
The health of humankind has always been and always will be of paramount
importance to every living being, irrespective of other factors which may enter into
life. So through the ages the art and science of the apothecary has functioned in
order that humankind may benefit by the progress made not only in the perfection
of remedies then extant, but also by the never ceasing search for more eiiicient
drugs and preparations.
When Egyptian civilization was at its height, pharmacy was practiced exclusively
by the members of the religious orders but, as time progressed, pharmacy became
a specialized calling and more stringent requirements were established to practice,
this profession. During the early part of the 13th century royal edicts cited
AND ITS FUTURE
speciiically the requirements necessary to practicepharmacy and from that time to
the present a definite control has been exercised by the various governments in
order that the health and welfare of the peoplefat-large may be adequately
This control of pharmacy by the state made it necessary that those who
practiced this profession be more thoroughly prepared educationally so it was
essential that a definite educational program be adhered to if the proper training
was to be obtained. From such a program there has been evolved the present
system of college training for pharmacists, and it is needless to mention that this
training has kept pace with the ever increasing requirements of the profession.
The present minimum curriculum in pharmacy of three years will soon be
replaced by a minimum of a four years' course due to the exacting requirements
now demanded of one who practices pharmacy. The biological and chemical
sciences have made much progress during the past few years and as pharmacy
utilizes these branches of learning quite extensively it is necessary that the future
pharmacist be well trained in these sciences in order to apply them to their
fullest extent. .
The future demands then that the pharmacist be well trained in such a
progressive institution as this.

In presenting the work of the School of Religion, I am trying to direct
attention toward the future. Any reliable forecast of the future must be based
upon experience, past and present. It therefore becomes necessary to look
backward before looking forward.
The work of education in America was first undertaken by the churches as a
part of religious obligation. Naturally enough the Hrst efforts were directed
toward the preparations of men for positions of leadership in the service of the
church, particularly in the ministry and in the work of teaching, for the professions
of medicine and law followed after as necessary services for the public welfare.
The spirit of religion developed in this country was inevitably drawn to general
education, not only as the rightful privilege of the masses but as furnishing condif
tions indispensable for democracy.
The churches again led the way in the efforts for the spread of general
knowledge, and the work of the colleges was supplemented by the establishment
of schools and seminaries of grammar and high school grades. Inevitably the time
came for the force of this obligation to be so generally recognized that the greater
part of the burden was shifted to the state, so that education in all save a few
restricted fields is offered at public expense. Thus the enlarging scope of public
education has lessened the number of unoccupied fields left to the church until there
now remains little more than the specinc work of teaching religion, the techniques
AND ITS FUTURE
of religious education, the work of the ministry, and of training for ministry
leadership in the various kinds of promotional work.
The School of Religion at the State College was opened at the beginning of
the Fall Term in 1921. From its beginning this work has been conducted on the
same plan and under the same arrangement with the Agricultural College as at
the State University. During the first years progress was necessarily slow, but
during the last four years there has been a continuous and rapid increase in the
enrollment until the total class registration for the winter term of 1929 has
The history of education seems, therefore, to show clearly that by far the
larger Held for religious education among the college students lies in the coeoperation
with the state schools. Practically everyone recognizes that the teaching of religion
is distinctively the task of the church, and all of our state colleges and universities
are encouraging cofoperation from the churches by making a place for religious
education so given as an accredited part of the curriculum. The increased and
growing enrollment in the School of Religion has created a pressing need for
building class rooms and ofhces, and for an additional professor. The success in
the past surely indicates that the future may be faced with faith and hope.

Twentyffour years ago, Andrew Carnegie gave suilicient aid to the State
College to erect not only the first library named for him in the state, but, at that
time, the best building to house books in North Dakota.
Other departments on the campus have outgrown their swaddling clothes and
have stepped into larger garments, while the library is still trying to wear the
same costume that was designed'for it at its birth.
From a student body of 300, to a registration of 1300, from four buildings to
more than 20 structures, from one librarian to seven assistants, thus has history
been written since the first library was erected in 1905.
Now the walls cry out for expansion and the floors groan under the ever'
With the cofoperation of the state legislature, it is hoped a little remodelling
may be done on the 24-'year old garment, although within a few years it will be
necessary to erect an entirely new structure with all the latest equipment and
design, to greet the fastfgrowing student body.
AND ITS FUTURE
That the library is a popular center, in spite of its old clothes, is proved by
the fact that 800 students enter its doors, in one day. Some of these come volunf
tarily for recreational reading, while others, through the guidance of .their instructors,
trace the story of the past and, through the experience of the men of old, prepare
for the great game of life.
Fortyftive thousand volumes are at the disposal of the college community,
including not only books of ancient and modern times, but popular and technical
periodicals, publications of learned societies and institutions, as well as daily
and weekly newspapers.
Bulletins from every state in the union and 31 foreign countries come to the
library with every morning mail to aid one in solving perplexing problems.
Not only does the library serve the state within the building, but, by means of
the parcel post, it extends a helping hand to alumni, club women, and high school
students throughout North Dakota.
By means of better facilities, it is hoped to more adequately serve. Magazine
readers, reserve book inquirers, and reference book workers may be separated so
that more intensive study may be pursued.
Seminar rooms for clebaters will also be possible with a new addition, thus
giving the student every possible means to come in touch with the best that has
been thought and written.

Interest in the class of 1929, its-organization, and its possibilities needs no
apology. The following pages will attempt to describe, from a detached point of
view, the story in concise names of activities. To get a complete story of the
class of 1929 one would have to write the entire biography of every individual
in the senior class.
There is a romance in that eventful fall of 1925 when 390 freshmen enrolled
in this institution of higher education. Without a doubt we were as 'Lgreen" as
the usual run of a freshman class. Quickly we learned of the ways of those in
the upper classes, not with the intention of following the identical footsteps, but to
improve where possible. The record made by the class of 1929 in athletics,
scholastics, and extrafcurricular activities is a ,
matter which needs no apology or word of com'
mendation. The record will he its own justification,
As the members of the class of 1929 receive
their diplomas upon graduation and walk off the
campus into a much greater adventure we look
back on North Dakota State College and wonder
if we did do our piece of work well and
worthily. The future will answer.

We enjoyed a successful year as sophomores with "Baldy" Hays as president
It was during this year that the class of 1930 began to distinguish itself in ath-

In passing the halffway point in our college career, and looking back upon
a successful class history, we are inspired to ever greater success in our two
The junior class edits the Bison and the
editorfinfchief of the Spectrum is one of its mem'

events of the years, is sponsored by the junior class.
The ambition of a junior is to become a senior
and later, a graduate. Witli this object in view
we are equipping ourselves to meet the responsif
bility which we will encounter in life after college.

It is often said that the first hundred years are the hardest, but this is 'not
true of college life. We have passed through that first period and now find ourf
selves as sophomores with an outlook far better than we had during our first
year as freshmen. We have tried to be more than students. We are represented
in every activity, and, before our four years of Bison work are over, our class of
'31 will rank among the highest in every way.
With a foundation of two years' experience to build upon, and with a
personnel that would do justice to any school,
the sophomore class will do its share, and more
toward putting the North Dakota State College i
where it belongs, among the leading colleges of

If numerical strength has any bearing upon its future, the class of 1932 has
a bright prospect just ahead. Entering the North Dakota State over SOO strong,
one of the largest classes in the history of the school, its members were quick to
catch the spirit of Alma Mater. The class is fortunate in having as members
people who have distinguished themselves as leaders in all forms of activity. Already
the freshmen have become known in collegiate affairs. In athletics the freshmen
football and basketball teams were acknowledged to be promising material for next
year's varsity. Menibers of the class of '32 have become affiliated with the organif
zations for which they are eligible. In all we have made ourselves a part of our
institution, and what more can be expected of us?
Spirit such as has been reflected throughout
the year in all the many interests and activities
of the institution cannot but augur well for an
important and continued program of service.
KENNETH WY.ARD, President.

Believing that popular school election would only
defeat the purpose for the selection of eight
seniors Whose past accomplishments predict ap
promising future, a new method of choosf
ing these Representative Moderns was emf
ployed. Deans of the seven schools suhf
mitted a list of the three whom they
considered most worthy of the hon'

given to a committee of five facf

BOARD CF PUBLICATIONS
The Board of Publications, an organization of faculty members and elected stu'
dents, governs the two major publications, The Spectrum and The Bison. Its work
is to supervise the activities of the heads of the two staffs to a limited extent. It
approves appointments, elects the heads of the publications, approves the letting
of contracts, and is a true advisory body. This board provides a forum in which
journalists may officially review problems of local and general signiiicance.
During the past year the group has held bifweekly meetings of a business
nature in the form of noon luncheons in Ceres Hall. Managers of The Spectrum
and The Bison have been alternately regular guests at these meetings and have
assisted in the deliberations. The successful year was merited by the sympathetic
attitude of all concerned.
At the annual spring elections, three new members were added to the board.
Charles Brown was chosen as the freshman representative, Kenneth Piper as the
sophomore, and Adolph Pahl as the junior class representative. The original
personnel of this year included: Everett Walluin, presidentg Henry Presler, secretary,
A. H. Parrott and T. Wordeii Johnson, faculty members, and Sarah Moore and
William McRoberts, senior members. With the aforementioned additions to the
board and the automatically elected members who are the present heads of the
two publications, a worth while year is predicted.

COLLEGE AND STATE
One friend will come to see you five times each year even though you may
take up your abode in far off China, in some distant state, or in North Dakota.
This friend is College and State, and between its covers there will be news of your
Alma Mater and of your college associates.
Twelve years have gone by since College and State was first edited. In this
short while it has grown from a few hundred copies per issue to several thousand.
There is a special service College and State renders high school seniors of North
Dakota. Each spring, some time in April or May, a High School Senior Number
ispublished. This number carries a message from the college to the prospective
students. In this copy there are many pictures of buildings and of scenes about the
campusg and in it there also appear short items that point out the advantages offered
by North Dakota's Great College.
How well the College and State has rendered its services in the past is now
reflected in the notes of praise from alumni and by the everfincreasing enrollment
at the school. In planning this High School Senior Number, three points are
featured by the editor. These are: students attend this college because of the low cost
of attending compared with other collegesg because of the types of courses offered,
and on account of the location of this college in the metropolis of North Dakota.
Jessie McLachli11 Frank Hannaber
THE 1930 MODERNISTIC BISON
Despite the, fact that this 1930 Bison is essentially forwardflooking, one of the
primary reasons for its preparation was the mirroring of the events and the
personnel of the college during this school year. It is to be hoped that this annual
may provide a kaleidoscopic view of the activities, both curricular and extra'
curricular, which occupied the time of the instructors as well as the student body
during this present year.
More than ever an attempt to make the book truly representative was one of
the goals set. To a greater extent than before, this aim has been realized. Over
3,00 upperclassrnen are pictured in the classes section. A much larger staff has
been employed this year. Assistants were given ample opportunity to become fully
acquainted with the work on the year book. Whether or not this plan is a
success the reader alone may decide.

Daily life on the campus is recorded in the Spectrum, olhcial semiweekly
newspaper of the North Dakota State College, which celebrated its 32nd birthday
in December. The paper was founded in 1896 as a monthly, grew into a weekly
in September, 1907 and remained so until its change to a twicefafweek policy in
May, 1925. Changes inaugurated last year in makefup were carefully adhered to
throughout the year in the belief that they were for the betterment of the paper.
The exception made to the following of the policies begun by Richard Hackenberg
was the using of streamer heads only when the importance of a story so demanded
and not as a semiweekly occurrence.
The organization of a new staff which had no mere figureheads for staff
members has been an innovation in this year's Spectrum. Perfection has not been
attained, yet the editor has endeavored to make use of two very ine sports writers,
an able society editor, and a real feature writer.

STATE COLLEGE ENGINEER
The State College Engineer appeared first on the campus as volume one,
number one with Walter Booth as the first editor. This was in the spring of
1926. Editors who have succeeded the initial editorfinfchief are Harold Hulett,
Carl L. Olson, and William Rundquist
As the official engineering publication of the school, The Engineer is published
quarterly during the school year by the students in the School of Mechanic Arts.
That it is a truly representative engineering journal is well evidenced by the fact
that large engineering industries are willing to use its pages as, a medium for
national advertising. Student articles and articles by former graduates make up
most of its contents. Only authoritative matter is allowed for publication, hence
it is of value both informatively and as a means of keeping the school constantly
before the engineering alumni.

Papyrus Ebers is the authorized publication of the students in the School of
Pharmacy. This news sheet which is issued every three months during the school
year was originated in 1926 as a multigraphed issue copy of three sheets financed
by the North Dakota Pharmacy Club. Today Papyrus Ebers is a 24fpage issue,
selffsupporting magazine of which any school of pharmacy might well be proud,
for it clearly exemplifies the work done by students of the North Dakota State
College School of Pharmacy.

THE LITTLE COUNTRY THEATER
It was in the days of Billy Pester, popcorn and peanut vender, that my interest
in the drama first was aroused. Billy was an unusual character. He was a short,
swarthy, corpulent Englishman, with an iron gray crinkly beard and a pair of soft
blue eyes. He was about four feet, nine inches in height and always walked with
a cane because of a paralytic stroke. He owned a small shack on Main street.
The city fathers had permitted him to place his dwarfed structure on a prominent
corner over an old cobble stone gutter. For a great many years he controlled all
the popcorn and peanut sales in Bowers' Opera house.
One day, in the fall of the year, on my way to school, Billy beckoned me to
come in and see him. Upon my crossing the threshold, he looked up at me and
said, l'Son, how would you like to see every show that comes to town as well as
earn a few pennies for school clothes?" He then explained his proposition with a
characteristic precision, emphasizing the fact that there would be a lot of good
plays coming to town. Like any other boy, for all boys like shows, my impulse
prompted me to accept his offer.
It was in the days when road shows like L'Romeo and Juliet," "The Merchant
of Venice," K'The Lady of Lyons," l'Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," "East Lynne,"
"Way Down East," "Short Acres,' and many others didn't mind stopping over
and playing a night or two, and even sometimes a week, here and there, regardless
of the size of the town. After an attendance at several of the shows, it wasn't
long before my interest in plays was larger than my popcorn sales. Billy noticed
this and when we would check up at night after a play, would occasionally smile
and tell me to do better next time. V
GETS BEHIND SCENES
Frequently the manager in the box office would ask me to take a note back
to one of the leading characters in the play, or the stage manager. While waiting
in the wings for an answer I would not only see a great many things behind
the scenes, but also hear many pertinent statements. It was a rich experience to
come in one's life at an age when his mind is easily impressed. That, together,
with the opportunity of not only seeing some genuine home talent productions, but
also taking minor parts in many of them, like Brismouche in 'LA Scrap of Paper,"
inspired me to seek further light in the Held of drama elsewhere. In consequence
of the same, while a student at the University of Wisconsin, I came in Contact
with a great teacher in the person of David Bowler Frankenburger, an ardent
admirer of Edwin Booth. A
"Old Frankie," as he was known on the hill, often told me that the greatest
thing in life was to take the insignificant and make it signiicant, that simplicity
was greatness even in the theater. This made possible more than anything
else, The Little Country Theater, the first laboratory of its kind to take on that
name in America as well as Europe and the Orient.

Dear Mr. Arvold:
It must indeed be gratifying to you to
arrive at the fifteenth anniversary of your
Little Country Theatre.
We are greatly interested in the work
you are doing and the ambitious program
you have for this occasion.
The hope and future of the drama in
this country lies in the hands of such
groups as yours. We, of the professional
stage are so hedged with economic diffi'
culties. Each year our problems become
greater. A revolution led by these younger
groups will have to happen before an ad'
justment of the theatre and audience can be
brought about. Speed the time!
Congratulations to you for your splendid
share in the work.

I only wish I could accept your invitation

I regret exceedingly that I cannot be
present at the celebration of the fifteenth
anniversary of your Little Country Theatre.
I have always regarded this as one of the
most significant and in every sense of the
word successful experiments in quite un'
trodden but potentially rewarding fields that
I have any knowledge of and have taken
occasion to refer to it with admiration
often, both publicly and privately. May
it go on and on and on.

Harold Fog as Peer and Constance Melchoir as Aase in The
Little Country Theatre production of Peer Gynt. The native quality
of gesture and movement which these players brought to the stage
made up in expressiveness for any lack of professional training. The
auditorium was lillcd for two nights with people from every section
of the state, some of them coming 300 miles to see the performance
and hundreds were turned away, proving there is both the demand
for good drama and the ability to do big things in the country as
well as in the city.

Twentyfsix years of service in the field of music, such as the undersigned has
had in this institution, has been an experience accorded to but few men. Begun in
a small way with only fourteen men on April 14, 1903, that experience has
broadened and deepened until it has touched the lives of several hundred young
men and women.
Music, one of the divine arts, lifts its devotee to supreme heights in life-both
moral, intellectual, and spiritual. The cultural side of the art is recognized in all
classes of society along with painting, sculpture, literature, and dramatic art. The
educated man or woman of to-day must be as familiar with musical growth and
changes as with the other arts. The practical side of the art gives to the student
the pleasure of expressing himself either alone or in groups-of association with
Others in ensemble and a knowledge and skill as a means of a livelihood.
Such has been the twoffold object in the 26 years of delightful service. That
it has not been in vain has been repeatedly demonstrated in the hundreds who have
gone out from the department to all parts of the world. Out of memory's storef
house can be conjured familiar faces from Maine to California, from Canada to
Florida, in Europe, China, Africa-a host of the "old boys" of the past 26 years.
A vision of the next 25 years sees hundreds more flocking to a new Music Hall,
a large symphony orchestra, larger and better bands, oratorio choruses, glee clubs-
a wonderful outlook for continued and increasing service. ,

Housed in its own twat-'storied brick building on the campus, this department
of the College has grown by leaps and bounds. Starting in Old Main in what is
now The Little Country Theatre, it soon moved to the southeast basement room
in Science Hall. It then went into the old first wing of a tofbe chemical building
standing between Main and the Engineering Building. This building was later
moved north and west, raised to two stories, remodeled, and is now Music Hall-
a beefhive of activity, crowded beyond capacity. With two piano teachers, two
violin teachers, a voice teacher, and the director teaching all the wind instruments,
the building is indeed a busy place. For lack of room and teaching force many
students cannot be accommodated. The past winter over 270 different students
received instruction in some form or other during each week. Some were in the
building every day, some three times a week, some only once each week.
The department specializes in the practical training of the various branches of
music, leaving largely the cultural side to the Conservatories. The time is not far
distant, however, when the class room theory and the laboratory practice will go
hand in hand to a well rounded musical education here at State College.

Traditional for their size, influence, and festivity as have been past Bison
HomefComings, the 1928 event eclipsed all former celebrations in respect to those
characteristics. Under the supervision of Mr. T. W. Thordarson, secretary of
the Alumnae Association, North Dakota State College accommodated over 6500
people on October 25 and 26. Alumni came from all over the northwest, Seattle,
Wash. and Schenectady, N. Y. contributing their share to the crowd of merry'
makers. Tremendous advertising possibilities were realized in the broadcasting of
the mass meeting by radio station WDAY, whose influence is felt in all parts of
the United States.
Preparations begun long in advance were in the hands of Mr. T. W.
Thordarson, general chairman, Prof. Homer Huntoon, chairman of campus decoraf
tions, Lt. Frank Ross, chairman of parade' arrangements, and Everett Wallum,
rooter king. These were given valuable assistance by many who contributed a large
part to the ultimate success.
Arriving on the campus Friday evening, the many alumnae were greeted
with the elaborate light scheme and decorations all aglow. Upon attending the
pep rally in the armory at 7:15, they soon conceived of the growth of this school
since their departure, for the armory was packed. A huge pep rally, talks by
former alumnae, and the Gold Star Band aided in the remarkable sendfosif.
The crowd at the rally adjourned to north of the armory for the bonire
where the band played and yells were led as the fire burned low. As the fire
dwindled away, the crowd made the annual march downtown.

The joint bands parade
Saturday morning alumni were busy looking about, and the students were
active getting their floats ready for the parade which moved off for Broadway at
10:45 meeting the University aggregation and band at the Great Northern Depot.
The parade, one of the best ever formed for a home-coming, was distinctive in
humor and theme. Thirtyftwo floats made the cavalcade enjoyable to the thousands
who gathered to witness the event.
A futuristic float sponsored by the Sigma Theta sorority took first place in
the contest. First place in the group costumes was won by the Art Club, while

The Bison were defeated by the Nodaks 18 to O in the afternoon before a

Approximately 250 alumni, faculty members, and guests attended the annual
banquet, which featured the Saturday night's activities. The banquet also was the
occasion for a housewarming for the Lincoln Log Cabin.
The alumni banquet was followed by two dances, one in the Main Building
for the older alumni, and one for the younger alumni and college students, held
in the armory.

The North Dakota State College R. O. T. C. unit was inspected by Major
Lockett and his staff on May 7 and S. Cadets will remember with pleasure the
ine May mornings that graced the annual event, as will the many townspeople
who gathered to watch the movements of the smart platoons. The occasion was
an exciting one for all who took part, as they felt a justifiable pride in the large
presentation, having spent months in preparation for the event. Not only had each
cadet studied his manual, but he had risen early on cold April mornings for the
daily, earlyfrnorning drill. During the spring months the unit had been handicapped
by unfavorable weather and were forced to drill often in the armory. A week of
rifle cleaning preceded inspection. With their burnished weapons and snappy
uniforms the batallions made a truly, militaristic appearance.
Major Lockett conducted the inspection of the unit on Monday, May 7, at
which time practical drills and ceremonies were reviewed. On .Tuesday the
theoretical work was gone over by the inspecting officer. '
The unit assembled at 7:40 Moiiday morning, was reviewed and inspected
by the Major. From 9 to 11 a. m. companies and platoons were designated to do
close order drill, calisthenics, and mass commands, guard mounting, main parade,
pitch and strike shelter tents, display equipment and extended order drill. At
11 a. ni. an hour's exercise m tactics completed the forenoon.
Monday afternoon was taken up with classroom inspection of juniors and
seniors. Practical examinations in sketching and machine guns at the armory

The satisfactory review of the Gold Star Band
was given at 3:15 for the juniors, At 4:15 the seniors took similar exams.
Facilities for instruction and training of the unit and condition of property,
R. O. T. C. organization, activities, and reports began at 5:15 p. m.
Freshmen and sophomore cadets took their examinations in the morning.
Musketry and automatic rifle was the nature of the practical test for sophomores
at 8 a. m. The freshmen started their examinations at 10 a. rn. with a theoretical
quiz in the barracks.
Major Lockett's interview with President John Lee Coulter at 1:30 p. m.
Tuesday concluded the inspection.
In speaking of the inspection Captain Smith said: "I feel that the unit will
receive a distinguished rating in the annual event since it has steadily improved
in the last three years." He pointed out that the inclement weather which had
kept the platoons indoors throughout most of the spring drill periods had failed
to handicap the cadets in their inspection.
The views held by Captain Smith proved correct. The unit received a
"very satisfactory" rating, in the words of Lt. Frank Ross.

As a result of the accurate shooting accomplished by the Bison rifle team
during the past season, the chances for capturing the National and Hearst Trophies
are even brighter than they were last year when the North Dakota State College
marksmen, coached by Lieutenant Ross, captured the National Championship.
Fire was completed in the shooting for both trophies with the Bison total above
that of last year. In the national competition fired a year ago, the rifle team made
a score of 7622 compared to a total of 7677 points made in the four stages fired
this year. The results of these matches are not known as this book goes to press.
During the winter the Bison gunmen shot a total of 62 matches, winning
52 and losing ten to make an average of .838. The average made by the
team ranks among the highest in the intercollegiate competition. .
Lieutenant Ross's aces completed firing for the Hearst Trophy April 10,
making a total which should rank well up with the strongest competitors. The squad
was divided into three teams, the first team scoring 879, the second 857, and the
third 816 points, making a total average of 831.
Participants in the first team were: Watson, Ballard, johnson, Schoessow, and
Dvorak. Second team: Glson, Barks, Basset, Palmerlee, and Bothem. Third team:
Piper, T. Palmerlee, Vern Smith, E. Schoessow, and Lee.
Last year riflery was made a major sport at this institution.

Charles C. "Casey" Finnegan, one
of North Dakota's foremost high school
football coaches for the past 10 years,
I was named athletic director of the
North Dakota State College last year.
lg Q Finnegan graduated from Ripon col'

active part in all athletics. He coached
in Wisconsiim and at Grafton. In 1917
Finnegan went overseas where he won
honors for gallantry in action.
Under the new plan of athletics,
Finnegan took over complete charge of
the physical education department and
was assisted by Stan Borleske, head
football coach, Leonard Saalwaechter,
head basketball coach and track coach,
Bob Lowe, frosh coach, and Pat Purf Coach Borleske
cell, hockey coach.
Athletics under the directorship of Casey are in a reasonably healthy and
growing condition. Intercollegiate relations with other universities and colleges
are in the following sports: football, basketball, track, tennis, hockey, and cross
country, while a big intramural program is enjoyed in basketball, baseball, track,

Before the game ended every substitute had faced the
Blue Warriors who furnished plenty of fight in competition
which failed to stem the Yellow and Green attack. During
the contest the varsity had a chance to show what it had, and
it had enough to please the spec'

There were two battling elevens on the Dacotah field
October 6, when the Superior Normal held the Bison to a
scoreless tie. The invading football team was tooted as
having a most powerful team and a smooth running offense.
The Superior team lived up to pregame reports and exhibited
a deceptive quick passing and hidden ball running attack
which caused the Bison plenty of trouble.
In the last few minutes of play of the first half, Leo
May brought the ball within
inches of the goal. The whistle
stopped the play before the Bison
could score. The Bison outplayed
and made more attempts to score
than their opponents.

the Cardinals 7 to 0. Leo May charged over the line to
score the Bison counter and Chief Pariseau kicked the goal
for the extra point. In the second half the Wisconsin

scoring, so Thistlethwaite sent in

Defeating the University freshman elcx cn for the first time since the conf
ference ruling of freshman football, the Bison yearlings rounded out a good season
on the Dacotah field November 2, in a decisive manner 18fO. This victory of the
Baby Bison evened accounts for the defeat that was handed them early in October
by the Flickertail frosh on the Nodak Held with a 13 to O count.
Coach Bob Lowe, new freshman football mentor, took charge of the freshman
squad in September and though his squad was handicapped by many injuries,
developed one of the smoothest running grid machmes ever to cope with the
varsity's attack in the often scrimmages of the long tedious football season,
Nineteen frosh gridders to receive the coveted "193l" at the close of the
season were: ends, Carl Miller, Leo Thomasson, Stanley Raymondg tackles,
James Law, Harold Dale, William Folendorf, guards, Arnold Kauffman, Alan Moe,
Alvin Hong, Roderick McMillan, centers, Frank Secora, Dan Regan, quarterback,
Donnie Walsh, halfbacks, Cy Lonsbrough, Johnny Fisher, George Fairhead, Alfred
Jaeger, Blair Seitzg fullback, Sam Westgate.
Of these probable candidates to make a strong bid for next year's varsity
eleven are Secora at center, Roderick McMillan at tackle or guard. Big Jim Law
ought to make things pretty rough for the varsity tackles, and Carl Miller should
be a strong contender for an end berth. Sam Westgate, Cy Lonsbrough, and
Fairhead are outstanding backield men, while Donnie Walsh showed up well at

Closing the season in a tie for second
place in the North Central conference,
speaks well for the North Dakota State
basketball team. Fans were anything
but optimistic as to the results of the
season from the scores and the per'
formance of the team in prefconference
games. A dismal season was in view,
but Coach Saalwaechter was not to be
discouraged, and daily drilled his
basketball enthusiasts until he had a
team that was a threat to any five in
the conference. The climax of the
season was reached when the Bison de'
feated the muchly tooted nomads of the
U niversity of North Dakota, who
boasted one of the greatest basketball
teams in University basketball history.
The Bison started the season in an
unimpressive manner by defeating the
Vikings 19 to 17. After this victory the

Bison were victorious but
only after a two overtime
period game, The Bison
trailed at the half, but in
the inal half traveled at
a tremendous pace to
stage a great comeback
and tie the score. The

to decide the game, so
another session was needf
ed to prove the Bison
During the Christmas
holidays the Bison basketball team took
a barnstorming trip and met with
teams in Illinois and Niinnesota. The
first stop of the tour was at Galesburg,
Illinois where the Lombard quintet
managed to eke out a win over the
Bison 29 to 25. The dribbling of Pete
Gergen was sensational during the tilt.
Wishing they were in Peoria, the Saalf
waechter basketeers met with Bradley
Polytech. The Peoria five proved to
be a powerful aggregation and the
Bison fell before their atf
tack 37 to 19. Next the
Yellow and Green basket'
ball team stopped at Def
catur long enough to lose
a close game to Millikin
28 to 24. Already the
effects of the hard tour
were beginning to tell on
the Bison. In poor conf
dition and suffering from
the holiday influenza epif
demic, the North Dakota
cagemen battled Illinois
Wesleyan. The game was '
battled evenly until a
rally gave the Deacons a
37 to 22 win. The Bison
met the Rockford Ma'
sonic team in the last
game of the Illinois tour,
and were defeated by the
Shrine quintet 39 to 32.
Gilly Johnson who played
before fans of his home
town was given a big
ovation when he graced
the court. Tired and
worn from the strenuous
Illinois tour, the Bison
invaded Minnesota and
stopped at Austin for a
two game series with the
Mix Brothers Indepen-
dent cage team. The first game was
played at top speed and the reserve
stamina that was lacking in the Bison
ranks due to the strenuous trip proved
to be the reason of the downfalll of
the Sally crew. In the last stages the
Austin loopmen won 30 to 24. The
second battle was even more fiercely
and evenly waged. In the last 30
seconds of play a gift shot awarded to
the Austin quintet was heartbreaking
to the Bison. The Independent team
won 32 to 31. Before ref
turning to the school the
Bison met Augsburg col'
lege only to end the tour
with another setback and
with a 36 to 28 count.
So the holiday bas'
ketball trip was closed
without a single victory,
but nearly all of
the contests found the
Bison offering their op'
ponents an even battle
Q throughout the first half,

team play of the opposif
tion together with the ef'
fects of the strenuous
trip caused the wilting of

though most of the scores
were very close and the
opponents had strong
teams, fans were pessimisf
tic as to the outcome of
Resuming school activf
ities the Bison basketball
team took a weekis rest
and lay off from basketf
ball, before settling down
to some real concentrated
basketball practice. With
the experience of a varied
type of defenses and offenses gained
through the holiday trip, the Bison pref
pared to enter the conference race
with Morningside. The night that
Saalwaechtefs men met the Maroons,
the Bison played a great game of
basketball to win the contest 38 to
21, and surprise the pessimistic fans.
The floor work of Boby Hahn was a
feature of the game, and Cecil Bliss,
who can ind the hoop with ease when
on, was high point man with eight
baskets. Encouraged by
their victory over Mor'
ningside, the Bison pref
pared to go on their conf
ference trip which carried
them through the lower
part of the North Central
Conference race. At Ver'
million, the first stop of
the southern tour, the
Bison easily won the mix
with the South Dakota
University 29 to 17. The
Bison showed their super'
iority throughout the
game. johnny Smith
In the return engage'
men t with Morningside
at Sioux City the Bison
were not so successful as
they were in their first
encounter with the Ma'
roons and dropped the
tilt 36 to 32. By win-
ning, the Maroons upset
the proverbial dope
bucket and evened up ac-
counts for the decisive
victory of the Bison a
There was a desperate
battle at Brookings, but
the Jackrabbits, who were
destined to be the conf
ference champs, remained at the top of
the title race and were victorious over

would indicate, the spec' I
tators were wild and had
little time to sit back
quietly but were kept on
their toes just as the two
powerful q u in t s were
throughout the g a m e.
The Bison after trailing
behind the Bunnies staged
a great comeback to win.
And then before the
classical University tussel,
the Bison were given time
out to fairly swamp the
Augsburg quint 41 to 22.
And in this victory there
was that sweetness which
comes through revenge.
The climax of the season was reached
in THE or at least one of the most
exciting basketball battles ever staged
in the old Armory, when the Flickerf
tails' championship hopes wilted before
the Bison attack 27 to 26. With a
minute to play, Hahn scored the win'
ning gift shot, and the North Dakota
State basketball team clinched second
in the conference race. The game was
played before a packed and hollowing
Armory. But the second
night the University of
North Dakota had ahot
bunch of basket shooters
who fairly blasted their
way to a 37 to 18 vicf
tory to avenge the 27
to 26 win of the Bison.

john Brady I
ries and the close of the
basketball season. The first
game was characteristic of
all Bison-Nodak athletic
struggles. The Bison enterf
ed the contest in a some'
what weakened condition.
Big Leo May played the
first game but was in a
weakened condition due to
illness. After a torrid bat'
tle the verdict went to the
Nodaks 53 to 30. The Bif
son .staged a rally which
had the possibilities of terf
minating in a win for the
Bison, but was cut short by
the iinal boom of the gun. In the second
tilt Leo May did not enter the first half,
but in the second stanza the big fellow
was found in the lineup, and played a
wonderful game in spite of his illness. The
second game, played to decide the state
championship went to the University by a
37 to 25 score. This game as the
others proved to be a hotly contested
game that was not won until the last
few minutes of play. In both games
the brilliancy of Pete Gergen stood out.
He was the defensive ace
of the contests and was
a big factor in the Bison
offensive play. In the
University t i l t s Pete
marked himself as one of
the closest and best
guards in the confer-
ence. Captain B o b b y
Hahn closed his basket'
ball career playing his
usual wonderful floor
play. Bobby was here,
'V , there, and everywhere.

tunity to witness the

Hfth game of the seaf
son at Mandan. Before
many of the legislature,
the Bison team recruited
chiefly from junior and
sophomore classes, were
defeated by the Univerf .
sity 33 to 25. The
North Dakota State
team was composed of
Leo May, Johnny Smith,
and Gil Johnson, sophomores, and Pete
Gergen and Cecil Bliss, juniors. Brady
and Dutch Hermes were the only
seniors who had the opportunity to
battle against the Flickertails. Neither
Captain Bobby Hahn nor Matt Braus
were able to be in the lineup.
Following the season Peter Gergen
was elected captain of the '29f'3O bas'
ketball squad. The lettermen were
Captain Bobby Hahn, forward, Cap'
tainfelect Pete Cergen, guard, Cecil
Bliss, forward, Matt
Braus, center, Leo May,
center and forward,
Johnny Smith, forward,
John Brady, and Gilly
Johnson, guards. Of these
eight only three will be
lost through graduation.
Captain Bobby Hahn
finished as one of the lead'
ing forwards in the conf
ference. Hahn's speed and
brilliant floor play was
outstanding during his
career. Matt Braus after
subbing the greater part
of his basketball career
developed into a dependable center, and
will be missed by next year's squad.
john Brady, whose basketball play at
North Dakota State was cut short by
two years of play at Wahpeton, devel'
oped in a short time into a consistent
and steady guard.

This Pep Club was founded at this college for the purpose of creating more
spirit within the student body and of providing entertainment at the games played
by the "Bison," The club membership is limited to SO members during basketball
season and to 100 members during the football season.
During the past year the organization inaugurated a new plan for the holding
of office. Under this plan officers are elected preceding each season of major sports.

What the freshman basketball squad was lacking in material was made up for
in spirit and enthusiasm. The feature of their season was the fourfgame series with
the University, in which the Flickertail Frosh won two games, the Bison Yearlings
won one, and one game ended in a tie. Despite the fact that the University won
the greater majority of the games, the Baby Bison basketball team was considered
to be of as strong a calibre and one that showed much promise in the formation
of future varsity teams.
The Hrst two cage contests between the University Frosh and the Bison Frosh
were held at the University. The Flickertail yearlings won the first tilt 28 to 22.
In the second game the two teams battled on such even terms that the score ended
28 to 28. It was impossible to have an overperiod to definitely decide the fray,
because the Bison cagers had to catch the Fargofbound train.
In their first game of the series in the college Armory, the Flickertail Frosh
easily defeated the Baby Bison 37 to 20. In the final game the Bison Yearlings
fought an uphill battle till they established their superiority 27 to 22. Other games
of the season were played with the Waldorf whom the Baby Bison defeated once,
and at whose hands they met two defeats. The Bison Frosh defeated the Concordia
team 31 to 14.
Those on the frosh basketball squad are: George Fairhead, Eric Nordstrom,
Paul Bunt, Thor Johnson, Vernie Goodwin, Blair Seitz, Sam Westgate, Leo
Thomason, John Walker, Robert Freeman, Carl Hanson, Clifford Westgaard, Walt
Olson, Alfred Jaeger, Clair Peterson, Cy Lonsbrough, and Donnie Walsh.
Following the basketball season Coach Saalwaechter took charge of the frosh
and sent them through drills with the hope that the promising frosh cagers might
greatly strengthen the varsity squad next year.

H When the hockey season rolled around it
found the Bison without a coach. Captain Smith
who founded hockey at the North Dakota State
college and whose fine coaching and eiforts raised
the winter pastime to a major sport was relieved
from duty at the college by the war department
and left the college without a hockey coach.
Pat Purcell, well known sports editor, ably
took up the duties of hockey coach and capably
filled the vacancy left by Captain Smith, When
Purcell issued the call for hockey practice, he was
greeted by many stars from last year. After pracf
tice sessions the Bison pucksters left for a strenu'
Put Purcell ous trip to meet Minnesota and Wisconsin teams.
The Bison pucksters opened their tour with a victory over the Fort Snelling Sextet
2 to 1, in an exciting two extra period game. The Bison showed themselves
superior to the Snelling Icemen and registered the 'first counter. In the second
quarter the Soldiers evened up the count with a determined attack. The game
remained a tie, so an extra period was in order, still another period was needed
before Johnson, eluding the opposing puckmen, gave the Bison the lead which they
maintained. The next opponents were the University of Minnesota, whose powerful
sextet crushed the Bison puck chasers 12 to 0.
Leaving Minneapolis, Purcell took his band of puck followers to Milwaukee
where the Bison hockey team had a disastrous two game series with Marquette.
The Bison lost to Marquette the first night 12 to O, and the second night 11 to 1.
The lone counter of the Bison was scored by Johnson. The work of McRoberts
as goalie was outstanding and because of his numerous stops the scores of both
games were held down.

After a rest Coach Purcell took his tired Yellow and Green clad hockey team
to Madison for a two game series with the University of Wisconsin. The rest
proved a stimulant to the team, who, however, were in a crippled condition. The
Bison hockey team started gamely and gained a twofpoint lead in the first two
periods. A third period rally gave the Badgers four scores, which enabled them
to win 4 to 2. The smart oiensive play of McDowell and Captain Johnny
Johnson, and the defensive work of Bill McRoberts were features of the game.
The following day the Wiscoiisixi pucksters continued their wins and defeated the
tired Bison 8 'to 4. In the game both teams resorted to offensive hockey and were
kept at top speed throughout the contest because of the cold weather. The flashy
Johnny Johnson, scoring three of the Bison counters, and McGrath starred on the
offense while McLachlin outshined his mates on the defense.
After the Wiscoiisin series Coach Purcell's battered hockey men started on
their homeward journey and stopped off long enough to meet the strong St. Mary's
Sextet. Tired from their strenuous trip and crippled, the Bison were defeated by
the Redmen 10 to 2. The cold weather handicapped the play of both teams and
the contest was not so fast as games previously played by Purcell's Band of Icemen.
The game .with St. Marys college ended the sevenfgame tour of the Bison.
Although the Bison hockey team only won one of their seven games, the prowess
of the Bison hockey team was not discredited, for the trip was strenuous and the
Bison were pitted against some of the strongest teams in the Northwest and in fact
some of the greatest teams in the country.
Knight Enlncr Lcmdhlom Bollman
Coach Purcell's favorite lineup was as follows: johnson, center, McDowell and
McGrath, Wings: McLachlin and Landblom, defense, and Bill McRoberts, goalie.
Spares to make the trip were,Knight, Bollman, and Hagen.
Cf this year's hockey team Captain Johnson, McDowell, McRoberts, Hagen,
and Landblom will be lost to the squad. During the season's play Harry
McLachlin showed the greatest improvement of the members of the squad, while
Bill McRoberts rounded out a great season as goalie. In the two games with
Marquette, Bill made a record of 112 stops. Members of this year's squad who
will be back for next season's play are McGrath, Bollman, Knight, and Joe
Blakeslee, who was out most all of the season because of injuries. Despite the
fact that the Bison hockey squad will lose a great number of stars, fans look forward
to a good season because of the strong influx of freshman stars.
The freshman hockey squad had regular practice sessions and held games with
Fargo high school and Moorhead puck teams. Cf the Baby Bison Burton Kilbourne,
Bob Anderson, and Byron Steffarud are probable contenders for the vacancy left in
the wing position. Selmar Quam, and Tubby Brown are two promising defense
players, and Jimmy Konen, a coming goalie. .
The North Dakota State Hockey team is in the Northern Intercollegiate Hockey
Association, and next year will again meet leading teams in the Northwest. With
the incoming freshman and veteran stars, Coach Purcell should develop another
good hockey team. This year the squad was handicapped by the heavy snows. The
size of the squad and the strenuous trip also accounted for the defeats of the season.
In the very near future when North Dakota State college will have an
inclosed hockey arena, home games with Marquette, and Universities of Wisconsin
and Minnesota will be on the schedule, and hockey will rise to great heights as a
popular major sport.

The North Dakota State cross country men under the leadership of Russell
Weiser swept to their second consecutive North Central cross country title at
Brookings, defeating the South Dakota State harriers 9 to 4 taking second, third,
fourth, and sixth places.
Bankert of South Dakota State ran a beautiful race to come in irst. Russell
Weiser, veteran of last year's championship team, came across the line closely
following the winner. Ches Rhimes, a newcomer to cross country last season,
finished third, while Walt Nelson, one of the veteran champs, was clocked a few
seconds behind Rhines to take fourth. Virgil Weiser finished fifth. The gruelling
race was fast and was run under ideal conditions.
Before the conference meet, Coach Saalwaechter staged a school meet to decide
who should take the trip. The meet was held between halves of the Nodak and
Bison freshman football encounter. In the home meet the runners finished in the
following order: Roy Jordre, Russell Weiser, Virgil Weiser, Caroll Anderson,
Walt Nelson, and Ches Rhines.
Cross country medals were awarded to Jordre, Anderson, and Rhines. Weiser
and Walt Nelson won their medals in previous years. The above six comprised the
squad which made the trip to Brookings for the conference meet.
Before the conference meet the third annual Minnesota cross country race was
held at Minneapolis. Behind the capable pacing of North, the Minnesota team
defeated the Bison runners, 38 to 17. Russell Weiser was the first North Dakota
runner to cross the line in fourth place. The Minnesota hill and dalers won the
first three places. The time for the threefmile course was 16 minutes and
27 seconds. -
The ive men to make the trip with Coach Leonard Saalwaechter to Minneapolis
for the encounter with the U were the two Weiser brothers, Virgil and Russell,
Walt Nelson, Jesse Reynolds, and Roy Jordre. In a practice meet held previous
to the Minnesota engagement, Russell Weiser took first place with Virgil Weisei'
second. Reynolds, jordre, Clark, Molitor, Kilbourne, Baldwin, and Allen finished
in the order named.
When Coach Saalwacchter gave the iirst call for cross country men he was
greeted by the veteran holders of the cross country conference title, Walter Nelson
and Russell Weiser, and nine other experienced runners. Soon the squad was
increased to 25 and attractive meets further increased interest in the sport. To
further strengthen one ol' North Dakota's minor sports, a new cross country course
was laid out for hill and dalers, who conditioned themselves nightly for the fivefmile
grind. The new course provides a slight hill and dirt road so that the course ranks
with those of other schools. The new route extends from the campus to the El Zagal
golf course and around the track, a total distance of five miles.
Although the Bison harriers lost to Minnesota, the cross country season was a
big success, in that the second consecutive North Central conference championship
was won, interest in the sport was increased, and the general plan of the cross
country season was greatly improved. At the close of the season six lettermen were
recognized by the Board of Athletic Con'
trol. Those who received the Coveted
HN. D.'s" were Virgil Weiser, Caroll
Anderson, Chester Rhines, Roy jordre,
Russell Weiser, and Walt Nelson. All these
runners will be on deck this fall for the '29
cross country season.
Next fall with the veterans back and
with the best schedule ever arranged since
the beginning of the sport at the college,
cross country racing should rise to great
heights, The usual home meet, and annual
conference meet will be on the card. The
customary dual meet with the University of
Minnesota, and meets with Marquette and
the University of Wisccuiisin, one of the
leading Big Ten cross country teams, will
probably be arranged on thc schedule, With
such attractive meets on the schedule, the
cross country sport, embarking on its fourth
year as a minor sport in thc college, should
gain a foothold at the North Dakota State Cmfh Saalwagfhtey

1928 Track Squad
VARSITY TRACK 4
Although no conference championship was won, Coach Saalwaechter's regime
as North Dakota State's track coach was a very successful one. Before the season
wasunder way, interest was running high in the sport that was revived only a few
springs ago by Coach Saalwaechter.
The Bison track aggregation opened the season by defeating the Vikings and
the jimmies in a trifmeet at Valley City. The order of Hnish in the meet follows:
North Dakota State 63 2f3g Valley City 36 1f3g Jamestown 53, The running of
Ole Sand was the big feature of the meet. He negotiated the century in 9.9
seconds and turned the 220 in 23.1. Following this victory the Bison met the
Valley City Teachers' cinder men again in a dual meet staged on the Dacotah
Held. The State College tracksters scored an overwhelming victory over the
Vikings by the margin of 87 U3 to 43 2f3. Baldy Hays had a good afternoon in
the field events and took first in the broad and high jump and in the pole vault.
With two victories tucked away, Coach Saalwaechter took his track men
up to the University to engage them in the irst dual meet with the Nodaks since
1919. In the struggle the Bison emerged victorious with a scant margin.
Coach Saalwaechter then took 11 of his tracksters to the North Central Con'
ference Meet. The North Dakota State team finished fifth and demonstrated that
they would be heard from in future years. Jake Wahl, Herman Zeissler, and
Walt Nelson scored for the Bison.
Track is growing and will soon be a prominent sport in the school. When
the Bison went to press, stars such as Sand, Peschel, Konichek, and Baldwin
were preparing for the 1929 spring season.

With only one defeat to mar their record, the Delta Kappa Sigma basketball
team won the interfraternity basketball championship. In winning the title the
Delta Sig Quint piled up a record of 13 victories. The only reversal of the
peason was met at the hands of the Kappa Psi Five winners of last year's campus
The Interfraternity League was run off in two rounds with each team meeting
every opponent team in the league twice. The close of the iirst round found the
two classiest teams, the Delta Sigs and Kappa Psis, in a tie for first place, each
team having six victories and one defeat. The Kappa Psi, with one costly defeat at
the hands of the Theta Chi Five closed the first round by taking the destined Delta
Sig Champs in an exciting tilt. In the second round before a large number of fans,
the Delta Sigs by close guarding outsmarted the pharmacists to win a battle, which
was considered the championship tilt, 22 to 14. The Kappa Psis dropped a third
game to give the Sigs a clear claim to the permanent trophy.
Members of the regular Delta Sig quint were Captain Joe Blakeslee, who was
coach and played guard, Neal Baldwin, centerg Floyd Viel and Carl Miller, for'
wards, and "Chuck" Arneson, guard. Other members of the championship squad
were Harry McLachlin, guard, Don McCain, Freddie Williams, and Art Cramer,
Basketball continued to be the most popular intramural sport on the campus,
and the interest in the games played in the Armory ran high. The brand of
basketball played by the fraternity teams was exceptionally good, and the games
were hotly contested with the usual characteristic rivalry. Bassett of the Theta
Chi quint was high point man of the season with 93 points.
The Delta. Kappa Sigma Champions
By defeating the Alpha Kappa Phi fraternity, holders of last year's title, in
the irst two games in a proposed three game series, the Y. M. C. A. ball tossers
won the campus league baseball championship.
The baseball teams on the campus were divided into an American and National
League. The four teams in the National League were Alpha Kappa Phi, Theta
Chi, Alpha Gamma Rho, and Delta Kappa Sigma. In the American League the
teams were Sigma Phi Delta, Y. M. C. A., Kappa Sigma Chi, Kappa Psi, and
Alpha Sigma Tau. Each nine met the opponent teams in their league in one
game. The "Y" baseball team had little diiiiculty in defeating all their opponents
in the American League. The Kappa Phi nine met with stiff opposition and had a
tie game with the Theta Chi sluggers before they managed to top the National
The undefeated National and American League leaders met in the final
championship series on the college diamond very near the close of school. In the
first game, the "Y" nine had little difficulty to win 5 to O from the Kappa Phi
team. Ben Gorder, Kappa Phi moundsman, pitched a nice game for the losers, and
Lenny Friberg, receiving Gorder's heaves, played a bang up game. jerry Gardner,
best pitcher in the league, had a fast and slow ball with a great varietyvof curves
to win for the HY." The second game was closely contested, and remained a tie
until a sacrifice hit clinched the campus league title for the "Y" with a 2 to 1
Members of the championship "Y" team are: Marv Tobias, shortstop, Denio,
fielder, Gast, center field, Gardner, pitcher, Karges, fielder, Bumman, first base,
Wellhausen, fielder, Dvorak, catcher, Quinnild, third base, Nelson, second base,
and Wallace Slavick, pitcher.
T. M. C. A. Baseball Nine
With only a slight margin over their nearest rivals, the Alpha Kappa Phi
fraternity, the Y. M. C. A. track team won the intramural track championship
on the Dacotah Field and Track in the spring of 1928. To win, the "Y" tracksters
counted heavily in the dashes and long distance runs.
The teams in the order they finished in the race for the championship are as
follows: Y. M. C. A., 57, Alpha Kappa Phi, 35 U25 Alpha Sigma Tau, 33,
Theta Chi, 29, Delta Kappa Sigma, 12, Alpha Gamma Rho, 12, Kappa Psi 6.
As the points show the meet was closely contested, and the spirit of the meet
ran high and overshadowed any previous intramural meet in the number of conf
testants and in the rivalry and results of the events. The Kappa Phis made a
desperate attempt to gain their third victory, which would have given them perma'
nent possession of the cup.
Ole Sand, dash man for the HY," broke the tape in the 100 and 220fyard
dashes, far ahead of his opponents. In the middle distance runs, Konichek, running
for the Sigma Taus, was stellar and took first in the 440'yard dash and halffmile
run. Mueller of the "Y" team took the mile and two mile. Joe Blakeslee, star
Delta Sig trackman, won iirst in his favorite event, the pole vault, and in the low
hurdles. Jake Wahl, Kappa Phi weightman, took iirst in the shot put and discus
throw. Other iirsts in the events are as follows: 120 high hurdles, Pembleg broad
jump, Hays, high jump, Zeisslerg javelin throw, Schmidt, halffmile relay won by
Alpha Kappa Phi. Coach Saalwaechter was well pleased with the meet, which
brought out a galaxy of track stars.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT-
In the last three years a steady and increasing number have graduated with a
minor or major in physical education. Many of these students are now teaching
physical education alone or in combination with other subjects. Still others have
decided to further their study and are now taking graduate work in those uni'
versities which offer a master's degree in health education as well as at the
National Playground Association.
At present we are working on a more progressive and extensive athletic
campaign. In addition to the intramural, class, and sorority games in the various
sports, we have introduced a newer type of competition between all of the required
freshman and sophomore training classes.
This year we have added two new sports to our program: archery and

The WOmC11,S Athletic Association is composed of all women students who
are interested in athletics. It was formerly a closed organization but better results
have been obtained by making it open to all women who have made the required
number of points.
All of' the athletic activities of the college Women are under the control of
the association. Its purpose is to promote a broader interest in athletic sports, and
to create a spirit of good sportsmanship.

This is a game which has developed hy leaps and bounds on this campus
in the last four years and has won a permanent place on the Coeds calendar of
major sports. This is due, primarily, to its adaptability to our erratic climate.
Soccer may be as successfully played on a snowfcovered held as on the dry sod
of late fall.
The games are played during the noon hour. Keen competition was felt
this year due to the more skillful playing and the more evenly matched teams. The
freshmen and sophomore teams made a grand 'fight and some of the games were a
struggle from start to finish. However, the juniorfsenior team was the victor. From
the three teams, those making the varsity squad are: Camille Alfred, Helen Ballard,
Georgina Brindle, Ruth Delileinhaus, Rosemary Frost, Eleanor Gieseler, Frances
Hedner, Bernice Hurmence, Kathryn Knerr, Sarah Moore, Dorothy Moflitt, Lucile
Odenwaller, Lorissa Sheldon, Minerva Streed, and Aletha Wi1111.

Basketball is the favorite major sport of the year. Practice began the first
week of November and continued until the class games began in the middle of
February. Records were kept of all the girls who came out for practice and
they were required to come out a certain number of times before they were
eligible to play on a class team as well as a sorority team.
The seniors are the titlc holders of the interfclass tournament. The juniors
and seniors were a tie up to the last games and then the senior team speeded up
their pace and came through with a victory. '
The intersorority gamcs were exceptionally interesting this year as more pep
and enthusiasm were shown by all the participants than any preceding year.
Perhaps this is due to the cup that was put up for the winning team by the
honorary physical education sorority, Delta Psi Kappa. This cup is in competition
until some sorority team wins it three years. Of the six sorority teams and one
nonfsorority team which took part in the tournament, the Sigma Theta quint

1 Varsity 'Team
A damp and cold spring did not provide an appropriate setting for a proitable
baseball season. With a beginning retarded by inclement weather and a conclusion
hurried on by the close of the physical education classes, this always popular sport
was not allowed to reach its height during the past season.
In the intramural games which were played off rather late in the spring, thc
junior class team proved to be the superiors in the national sport.
A team representing the best players in the tournament comprised those girls
who showed up as outstanding in their respective positions. Although several
freshmen proved to be good in the game, none were chosen on the mythical
varsity nine. Two sophomores, two juniorsfseniors, and five juniors made up
the personnel of the allfcollege batsmen whose names follow: Georgina Brindle,
Ruth McKi11non, Aletha Wiiin, Ruby Oscarson, Christine Rud, Ruth Henning,
Hazel Heald, Grace Sjordal and Helen Ballard.
Coeds Strike While the Ball is Hot
An Egyptian dance group
The dance recital, which is an exhibition of the type of work which is
being done by the girls taking physical education, took place the second week in
May in the Armory.
There were about 125 taking part and it was a very colorful affair. The
dances that were given were learned by the girls in the gymnasium classes during
the year. The costumes were all made by the ones who wore them. But all the
work was under the supervision of Miss Cole which is the sole reason why it was
such a big success. The dance recital has been given three years now and each
year the attendance has increased proving its success, and the work on the part of
the girls taking part and Miss Cole, the director, is highly appreciated.
A distinctly different note was carried out in the spring recital by the arranging
of the dances into groups, each of which represented a type of dancing. The
presentation in dance of the Mardi Gras was beautifully done. This feature was
given as the finale of the program and was most effective.

The Student Commission is the legislative body of the students at the college.
Matters of student opinion. student regulation, student activities, student welfare,
and student government are handled by the group. The Student Commission is
composed of seven commissioners and the president. Each commissioner is
responsible to the commission and the commission, in turn, is responsible to the
student body. In this way all student activities are supervised and held
responsible to The Student Commission.
During the past year we have attempted to create more class spirit and a
spirit of democracy in the student body. Various "all colleges" have been
sponsored to replace the parties given only for the "Creeks" The traditional "Gay
Cat Dayl' was filled with new and interesting events. A "Sports Dance" at which
the students arrayed themselves in sports attire was an innovation.

Automatically upon registration all the women students of the State college
become members of the Women's League, the governing body of which is the
Women's Senate. The Senate consists of two representatives from each of the
college classes, two from the high school, and two from the college at large. This
group meets the last Friday of each month to discuss problems concerning the
women's activities on the campus. In the past year the Women's Senate has
secured satisfactory rest room facilities in Science Hall, the Chemistry Building, and
Ceres Hall. They had no small share in securing the new walk to Science Hall
and the drinking fountain in the college Library. Their most recent undertaking
is a series of talks for the women of the college on social contacts.

College has something fully as valuable to offer outside its class rooms as within,
and that something consists of human friendships and relationships which form the
basis of a better understanding of our fellow men.
The College "Y" offers many opportunities for the students to form human
contacts. It has a reading table well supplied with all the latest magazines cover'
ing a big variety of fields, a well selected library, and a student recreation room.
Through the athletic program, the "Y" furnishes good wholesome exercise in
ideal surroundings, thus supplementing the campus athletic program.

The Young Vxfomenfs Christian Association is an organization open to all
women students of the college, irrespective of creed. The new purpose of this
group is uto realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God,"
and, in order to realize this new life, the organization endeavors to encourage and
develop the spiritual side of the students life and to offer opportunities that will
result in new contacts among people.
Much of the success in carrying out the program the past year was due to
such prominent speakers as Dr. Jamison, Miss Scurloek, and Mr. Bone, who led
small discussion groups of interest to the student body. The organization sponsors
various social activities during the year, such as The Big Sister Movement, The
Freshman Dinner, The "Y. M.fY, W." Mixe1's, The Cofed Prom, and The

The Art Club is an organization composed of girls who have shown interest
and special ability in art. The purpose is to aiford the students of all departments
an opportunity for self expression, to stimulate a further interest in art, and to
bring the students together in a social way. During the past year the club
sponsored an Art Exhibit, an Artists' Ball, and an entry in the Homecoming
Parade in which it was awarded first place for group costumes. The Misses
Dorothy Hatch and Nancy Elliott, as faculty members and advisors, have done
much to promote interest and to aid in the work of the club.

tion Club. In contrast to open membership, a student must have an 82 per cent

functions of the club.

The early history of the College Engineers Club is reminiscent of the time when
the whole School of Mechanic Arts was confined within the walls of the lone brick
building which now is Cld Engineering.
At that time the club was called the Lyceum of Engineers. Since then its
name and organization have changed several times, having grown consistently with
the growth of the school. Throughout these years of gradual development, the
motives, aims, and ideals of its founders have remained intact.
The College Engineers' Club is a professional organization whose membership
consists of the faculty and students in the School of Engineering and has as its
object the promotion of a spirit of fellowship within the organization and the
fostering of fraternal cooperation within the profession.
Each year the club sponsors the annual Engineers' Wild West Ball and the
Engineers' Cpenfl-Iouse. At present the club has a membership of approximately 150.

carries articles of general pharmaceutical interest.

The Saddle and Sirloin Club was founded at North Dakota State College
March 15, 1928 by members of the Livestock Judging Team representing the col'
lege at the International at Chicago that year. During the war the club was
inactive because of the small enrollment at that time.
On January 10, 1922 the club was reorganized and a new constitution was
drawn up. The object of the club is to promote interest in animal husbandry,
in particular, and in agriculture in general. The club truly crystallizes the sentiment
of the student body in the School of Agriculture. The Saddle and Sirloin Club
sponsors the Little International Livestock Show and Fitting Contest among other

No formal organization is attempted in the Writers' Club, which first appeared
as an institution on the campus last December. It is merely a social group of
wouldfbefwriters who meet informally every two weeks to work together for the
good of all. Membership is limited to twenty. A student in any year of college
may be elected by vote after submitting a. manuscript for the inspection of the
club and faculty members.

pretty little pebbles in the yard. He later was the original
owner of the Kimberley diamond mines, richer than fabled

And, what is it worth? The old German phi'
losopher, Kant of Koenigsburg, wroteg "There is no
good in the world but the good will." If this is true
then good will is worth whatever it may cost in time,
trouble and money.
To obtain good will, a light and power company
must have character, just as an individual must have
-character if he is to have the respect of his nieghbors.
It must have spirit. Something in addition to
the material properties and bodily labor must be put
into the enterprise to make it live.
The history of the light and power industry is
one of character and spirit. The price of good will
has been great, but the resulting public confidence has
made it Worth while.

CODA-CONTAINING THE PROVERBIAL
Forwardflooking is this 1930 Modernistic Bison and forwardflooking
was its editor who throughout the year anticipated with pleasure the writing
of this page. E
Even though at numerous times when one was in the depths, it seemed
that this page in the book would never be reached, but here 'tis. And now
that the conclusion is attained, one is, tritely enough, not animated by this
fact. In retrospect the year .seems to have been most pleasant.
The completion of the annual was made possible not merely by the
continuous and hard work of the staff. External forces were also influential
in the preparation of the book. Again Mr. Carl Herdeg of Knight Printing
Company and Mr. A. A. Segal of the Bureau of Engraving, Minneapolis,
proved to be indispensable to the inexperienced editors. These two men
have grown to be mainstays of the Bison Staffs through their willingness
to cofoperate to the fullest extent. Mr. Roy Corbett, college photographer,
and Mr. A. R. Scherling and Mrs. Hoff of the Owl Studio are responsible
for the photography in the Bison. Their fine cofoperation is appreciatively
acknowledged here. Moreover the staff of the 1930 Bison must next receive
praise and gratitude. The staff proved to be an unusually faithful one,
although most naturally not all of the staff members were true workers.
Right now one can even appreciate the shirkers. These shirkers at least
acquaint one with a class which makes up a goodly part of our world.
Thanks to all others who were of assistance during the year completes my
It is my wish that the class of 1930 finds in its Bison a record suitable
for its achievements and an enduring reminder to keep alive the fires of
friendship which were kindled at the State College.
The satisfaction of completion is mine-the book is yours.
