STRATTON Class Advisor19Z| —MeletebN—® ®fje §?ear The forty-sixth year of our school approaches a close. Each passing year in the life of an institution appears very much as those that have gone before. Students come and students go. Each year a graduating class goes forth. Each year a body of new students is admitted to the institution. Changes in the personnel of the faculty are gradual. Campus and buildings present much the same appearance this year as last year. Ordinarily the administration of the school and the conduct of its work varies little from term to term. Is it true then that the year just closing is so like last year and the year before, and that these in turn are so similar to the many years that have gone before that we mistake when we speak definitely and positively of the year 1920-1921 as possessing any marked individuality? The life of our institution is complex. It is made up of the lives of six hundred individuals, from the smallest to the greatest and from the weakest to the strongest. The life of an institution is a reflex of the lives of the students and teachers who make it up. A school has a personality—a resultant of the personalities of the human elements comprised in its student and faculty body. The personality of the school changes as the years change. Each succeeding year brings to the institution hundreds of new personalities to be merged in a composite personality—the River Falls Normal School. The year has been marked by an earnestness of purpose in the labors to which teachers and students have jointly.assigned themselves. The quality of school work has been high. The year has been characterized by a high type of leadership in student organizations,—a leadership which has regarded service to the institution rather than personal advantage as its goal. . The Christian organizations of the school have exercised a marked influence upon the year. Under their leadership, students have been helped and inspired in the regular meetings of the organizations and through the messages brought to the school by special lecturers who have appeared under their auspices. The year has been characterized by keen competition in our athletic contests. A spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship has been marked in the large measure of success which has come to River Falls teams. In the field of debating our representatives have carried the institution to new and higher levels of success. The school spirit has been sound and wholesome. It has been free from narrowness and pettiness and has been characterized by a spirit of loyalty to the institution and a spirit of co-operation in all its enterprises. A spirit of courtesy and kindness has characterized our social relations, students and faculty. THE YEAR in an institution does not refer to a calendar unit; it signifies an epoch in the history of the institution, not a time period but a life epoch. | H. AMES, President.

Considerable difficulty was experienced in obtaining an appropriate name. The first appellation attached to it was The Third Year Senior Class. This name, however, was often confused with the third years of the high school department. As some of the members have not received diplomas from the school, the name. Post Graduate Class, was misfitting; so after some deliberation the present name was decided upon. Being at least one year the senior of the other students, the members feel themselves of rather keen excellence; nor is that feeling unjustified- At the outset, this class was very fortunate in obtaining as class advisor, Mr. Karges, whom none can dispute as being not only one of the most prominent members of the faculty, but also the main cog of a most active school. This class has reason for its pride because of the active part its members have played in the school activities. Among these we recall the basket ball squad of the last two years, and we immediately associate the names of the mighty Wausau trio, Wright. Melvin, and Olson. On the gridiron we see, in our memories of the last two championship seasons, the mighty figure of Hank Otterson. surrounded by classmates such as Bill Smith, Olson, Melvin, and Glenn Morgan. In baseball, Melvin and Olson arc featured again as playing the big role in Chandler s craek infield. In lines other than athletics, we find Wright featuring as president of this class. With Skifstad’s name we associate his work on the student Voice staff, and his loud part in the school orchestra. For the part played by Eleanor Newcomb we need only recall her excellent work among the Shenandoah Campfire Girls. Next comes Irene Larkin, the class musician, to whom the entire school is grateful. Three of the members, Evelyn Lord, Jane Campbell, and Albert Fuller, spent only a half year with the class, and although not as conspicuous as others their marks place them well up in the scholastic line.- Thales Webster finished his high school work here, so he has been a local figure for six years. It is his name that is readily connected with the Y. M. C. A. and Lincolnian, for which societies he has done some excellent work. Henrietta Simpson is a student of the highest type, and though quiet, in her way she has been one of the active members of the class. In the social and scholastic life of River Falls Normal we find Archie Anderson still playing the leading part. Last year, he was a member of the negative debating team, and this year he has been president of the student social committee, which under his able direction, has been a great success. Last but not least is Audrey Armstrong, better known as Speck. The name is fitting from a physical standpoint, but it is rather misleading when used to describe her abilities. For three years Speck has been a leader in the most active organizations of the school, haring held offices in Y. W. C. A.. Aurelia, G. O. P., the present class, and tne greatest, perhaps, editor-in-chief of last year's Meletean. We are well assured that with the sound foundation laid by the excellent work of this class, the next graduate class will be able to carry on with an even greater stride.

This modest statement must be true, for we admit it ourselves and if any skeptic remains unconvinced he should ask our class advisor, Mr. Stratton. Of the seventy freshies of an emerald hue who composed the class on that now far-distant but eventful day, only twelve brave souls remain to give us a concrete illustration ' of what five years in a school like the River Kalis Normal will do for one. They arc Helen Wasson, Irene Stewart, Florence Elliott, Ruth Fuller, Anna Hagestad, Lucilc Kay, lone Lundy, Zclla Scott, Willard Scgcrstrom, Gudrun Jahr, Paul Cudd, and Abel Benson. Our number was increased from time to time by people from high schools all over the state so that in spite of the members we lost, our class steadily grew to its present proportions. As freshmen, our group was distinguished for its pep and its classy basket-ball team of girls of which the only remaining member is Anna Hagestad. We have won the inter-class championship games in athletics for two years and put on a record-breaking Prom in our junior year. We have furnished a great deal of talent to uphold the reputation of the school as a developer of brains and brawn. Witness the following list of stars in their line. Class Presidents—First Year, Paul Cudd and Michael Dcmulling; Second Year, Turner Standish and Herman Moline; Third Year, Willard Scgcrstrom; Fourth Year, Jean Miller and John Williams; Fifth Year, Leon Venues and Percy Clapp. Student Voice—Harold Strocdc, E. C. Tlioncr, Paul Cudd, Tony Andrus, Irene Stewart, James Luther, Leo Shannon; Presidents of Societies, Willis Davis, Gladys Goddcn, Ernest Wilson, John Williams, Louis Sccfcldt, Bessie Rouse, Lucilc Kay. Debate and Oratory—Janies Luther, John Williams, Leo Shannon. Alvin Howalt, Laura Kellar; Yell Leaders—Everett Dc Garmo, Tony Andrus, and Percy Clapp. Football—Capt. Harvey Bliss, Percy Clapp, Joseph Gurnoe, William Johnson, William Quinn. Archie Morrow, Earl Fahland, and Dwight Chinnock; Basketball—Capt. Loyd Rice, Archie Morrow, Joseph Gurnoe, Dwight Chinnock; Girls Basketball—Honor McNally, Helen McNally, Anna Hagestad, Mae Brown; Baseball—Capt. James Luther, Lloyd Rice, William Johnson, James Carolyn, Willis Davis, Clarence Carlson, Earl Fahland. The class of 1921 hereby expresses its gratitude to the faculty members who have helped and inspired us in many more ways than they know, especially our class advisor who has given so much of his time, energy, patience, and talent to putting our class over the top. Many times in the years to come we shall look over the pages of this Meletean and every now and then a glimpse of the familiar face of a classmate will cause us to muse as follows: SENIORS 1921 Over the bridge of yesterday My thoughts have turned to-night. And out of the far off distance Comes a tender glowing light Which centers around the friendships That have lasted through time and tide, Though the chance and change of fortune Have severed our pathways wide. It may be that our earth’s to-morrows ■ Can find us no meeting place. And only in the hereafter I shall see them face-to-face; But when memory goes aroving And the choice of a pathway comes, I will choose the bridge of yesterday In the days when we were chums.

The success of the junior class in its many tasks during the past year has to a great extent been due to the work of our class advisor, Mr. Whitenack. No matter how difficult the task to be accomplished he has always been ready to lend a helping hand or give some good advice. Through his efforts, the class has enjoyed a very successful year and bids fair to accomplish even more next year. The juniors made their “debut" into society at their Christmas party. Contrary to custom, this “coming out" party took the form of a track meet. The class was divided into four college groups: Ripon, Carroll, Lawrence, and Beloit Representatives of each college competed in the various events of the track meet Undreamed of athletic ability was_ displayed by various members of the class. The “standing Broad Grin" and the broad jump (big feet won this event), were some of the amusing events that took place. The rivalry between the colleges added.to the excitement A short musical program followed the meet; refreshments were served; and dancing occupied the rest of the evening. A cabaret scene was the unusual setting for the annual “Junior Prom.” Old rose and gray were the key notes of the color scheme. Old rose drapes divided the space around the edge of the floor into booths which inclosed a table and two gray covered chairs. The upper part of the gymnasium was cunningly concealed by rose and gray streamers interwoven. The lighting effect was, perhaps, what determined the success of the decorations. A small ligjit shed a soft glow over each table. The dancing floor was lighted by two large rose lights which hung at either end of the room. A "cozy corner” further accommodated the dancers. The dancing program consisted of twenty dances with five "extras." There were waltzes, fox-trots, and one-steps to the satisfaction of all. As every one went reluctantly home, there was only praise for the junior class. The class has taken a very keen interest in the athletics of the school, and is proud of its contribution to the success of this years’ teams. It was well represented on the Normal football, basketball, and baseball squads. Several of the outstanding players were juniors. Prospects for some unusually strong teams next year look good, when we are assured of the return of several senior athletes. These with the excellent junior stock will inevitably bring us the bacon. The junior class is like America—composite in character. Its members have come from various parts of Wisconsin and brought along a great diversity of intellectual gifts and valuable “experiences which give the class a versatile and interesting esprit de corps." It is interesting to note that the iuoiors enter enthusiastically into every wholesome enterprise of school life. Whether it is debating, athletics, oratory, or social events the class always has its representatives in evidence. This getting behind everything that keeps the name of River Falls in the van is an outstanding characteristic of our class. One of the junior slogans is “Loyalty to our alma mater.” Page 571921 ® —MeleteaN—® JUNIORS Page 5$m ® — MeletebM—® JUNIORS Page 59j9Z| — MeletebN)—® JUNIORS Paoi 601921 ® — MeletebN—€ JUNIORS Page 61192 ( —MeleterN—II JUNIORS Page 62VICTIMS OF THE KODAK 19Z( MeletebN)—® JUNIORS Page 63Krmhs Page 64j92l ® —MeletebK)—H Z )t £tgf) d)ool department In the early history of the Wisconsin Normal Schools very few other state-supported, teacher-training institutions existed. The high school, as we know it today, had not been brought to the people of our state, so that those who wished to teach either took examinations after private preparation, or entered the Normal School. With no secondary school superstructure. the Normal School courses were at first four years in length. People were admitted about as they are now admitted to the high schools. Various changes have come in the matter of courses of study, until, at present, we have a five year course in several of the normal schools, while others admit no students who are not high school graduates. River Falls still maintains this five year course. Candidates for teaching are admitted anywhere above the eighth grade and they are able to secure a Normal School diploma in five years. The first three years of this course is often called the High School Department. This department serves two important purposes. First, it is a pre-normal department. Students who complete the required studies are admitted to the junior class of the Normal School and there may enter any of the courses offered for teachers. Second, it affords a field for practice teaching for the students of the Normal School who are preparing to teach in the public high schools of the state. The course of study is very similar to a public high school course. It provides for thorough work in English, Agriculture, Science, History. Civics, Mathematics, and Vocational Subjects. Emphasis is placed upon the important features of those subjects that form the foundation to a good professional course for teachers. The work is administered as a part of the Normal School. One of the regular teachers acts as a principal who supervises the program selections of the students and aids in checking up the progress and attainments of the students. The subjects offered arc taught bv the regular members of the Normal School faculty, and practice teaching is carefully supervised and directed by these teachers. The department usually enrolls about one hundred students. These people come from the model school, from surrounding rural and graded schools, or from village schools some distance away. Usually those coming from a distance are people who have been forced to leave high school to work, and come to this school in preference to re-entering their local high school. As the student body is not segregated, a marked stimulation is experienced from the contact with the upper classes. During the first three years the mingling of the students with those of the upper classes develops a_Normal School spirit among them. Most of those that enroll in this department finish the Normal School and become teachers. Their social activities arc largely co-operative with those of the other classes. Their chief ambition is to become juniors. Their loyalty is for the RED and WHITE.

Not only must he be able to teach successfully, but in addition he is expected to take an active part in the agricultural activities of the community. The live agricultural teacher must have the courage and initiative to be a leader in his community as far as agricultural events arc concerned. With this in mind this department plans a number of outside activities during the year. The main purpose of these outside enterprises is to give the student actual participation in these events instead of talking about them. Two important events are carried out each year. During the winter, a two days’ crop and poultry show is held. The money needed to finance this show is raised by the students, a play being given for that purpose. Committees arc appointed to take charge of the advertising, entries, etc., under the direction of the members of the Agricultural Department. A number of educational exhibits arc arranged by the students, bringing out important points in regard to the value of milk, the plan of crop rotations, arrangement of farm buildings, soil tests, poultry exhibitions, and demonstrations. In the spring, a I.ive Stock Show is held. Beginning eight years ago with a few head of live stock, this show has grown until between two and three hundred head of only pure bred cattle are shown. It is the largest Live Stock Show in this part of the state. Students assist in preparing and showing animals for exhibit. They also assist in the entering of the live stock, and farmers frequently engage their ' services to help them fit stock on their own farms. By being in such intimate contact with these activities, it is felt that confidence in organizing and taking charge of such events in the communities where they may be located, will be greatly increased. Page 77j9Zl — MeleteaN—® AGRICULTURE agriculture at tfte iRiber jFalte iJormal j rljool The Agricultural Department at the River Palls Normal School was organized in 1912. Each of the Normal schools in the state was given the opportunity to specialize in some particular department. The Board of Regents, believing in agricultural possibilities here, authorized the president of the school to develop a course in agriculture. At that time the school had only one building and the agricultural work and also the chemistry was handled on the third floor. Only two teachers were needed. Professor W. S. Welds, now professor of agricultural education in the Massachusetts Agricultural College, was director of the course. Professor A. C. Kucnning. now County Agent in North Dakota, was the other member of the department. The first graduating class consisted of three members. One of these men holds a responsible position with the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Another is acting as business agent for a group of farmers in St. Croix County, while the third member owns and operates a large farm near River Falls. The teaching staff has been increased until now there are four men devoting their entire time, and three others doing part time teaching for the department. Equipment. The department is very well equipped now to do effective work. Laboratories and class rooms used for agriculture instruction occupy all of the lower floor and part of the third floor. A large, two-story, shop building furnishes ample facilities for giving practical and thorough courses in blncksmithing, carpentry, architectural drawing, concrete instruction, tractors, and tractor operation. The school owns and operates a farm of 100 acres. The farm is managed from a practical standpoint. A portion of the land is devoted to experimental work. Classes in agricultural chemistry carry out experimental plots, studying the use and application of fertilizers. Soil tests and analyses arc made. While the students are not required to do a great deal of actual farm work, yet they are on hand for much observation, and at opportune times, some of the practical work. A large bam was built last year and the school maintains a large herd of pure bred Holstein and Guernsey cattle. This herd is kept for the purpose of furnishing facilities for livestock judging and to give practical work in dairy testing, feeding, and veterinary practice. The herd sire is a son of Sir Pietertje Ormsby Mercedes 37th. This animal is considered to be one of the three best Holstein sires in the United States. He recently sold for $100,000.00. With a son of this animal at the head of the herd, the Normal School, in time, should have one of the outstanding herds in this part of the state. Method of Instruction. While the school has ample equipment for handling the agricultural work, yet, in order to give the prospective teachers a full grasp of the situation, it seems necessary that they be given an opportunity to study farms, crops, and livestock on surrounding farms. A large truck and two touring cars arc available for that purpose and frequently trips arc made to farms of successful farmers. Since considerable of the instruction in a high school must be done on the farms, it is felt that this practice will better acquaint the men with this method of instruction. The River Falls Agricultural Department occupies a prominent place in the agricultural education work, not only in Wisconsin but in the entire country. There is no normal school in the United States that turns out as many agricultural teachers as our own. Over one-half of the teachers of agriculture in Wisconsin arc graduates of the River Falls Normal School. Numerous calls come from Iowa, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Montana, and other states. There is a strong demand for graduates of this school. With the prospect of more buildings, the future of the agricultural work at River Falls assumes a very rosy outlook.

JOHNSON The Agrifallian Society was organized in 1912. It is one of the oldest organizations of the school, and its strength is recognized by the other societies. The organization fosters a spirit of fellowship, and equality, which cannot be obtained in any other way.. The society is of great educational value in that it affords the students taking the agriculture course, and all those interested in agriculture, a chance to participate in the discussion of modern farm problems. It also gives them a chance to exercise their ability in debating, public speaking, and parliamentary practise, besides affording social gatherings. The regular meetings consist of topics and news items of interest and importance to agriculture men. Most of the work on the program is done by members of the society. However, an outside speaker frequently appears on our program such as a county agent, or some man of experience who instructs and advises us in regard to agricultural matters. Alpng with the literary and debating work the members this year have compiled the “Agrifallian Yell,” a paper made up of items dealing with agriculture and its progress. It also contains stray bits of humor about the agriculture men in school. It is written by the different members of the society, and is Tcad at the regular meetings. This publication gives valuable information to the writers as well as to the audience, as the topics are up to the minute, and arc important in agricultural circles. One of the most important events of the year was the staging of the play, “Stop Thief,” in which members of the society took part. The proceeds of the play were used to finance the grain and poultry show, which is an annual affair, and is a big event in the life of the school and vicinity. It is entirely managed by the members of the society. The future of this organization looks very promising indeed. Wc arc confident that it will in the future, as it has in the past, continue to maintain the ideals and standards that have thus far been advanced toward the betterment of agricultural education in this institution.

The names of two hundred forty-six men appear on the Military Roster in all branches of service. The old school followed with anxiety and with pride the great events in which these men were concerned and was honored by the part which they played in the great struggle. In memory of those of our sons who laid down their lives, we have placed in our hall a bronze memorial tablet bearing the names of these heroes. “THEY THAT DID LOVE AND WERE LOVED AND MERE IN THE SCHOOL WERE REARED IN THE MIGHTY STRUGGLE OF THE AGES FOR US FOR THEIR COUNTRY FOR THE WORLD WITH LOFTIEST COURAGE IN GLORIOUS DEATH WENT HENCE UNTO LIFE EVERLASTING.” With the return of peace our men turned their steps homeward. Graduates of the school came back to renew old acquaintances and under-graduates returned to complete courses. Under the liberal bonus law of Wisconsin, there vere enrolled in the school year 1919-20, seventy-one service men and in the present year forty-five. These service men have made a splendid record in the school. Twenty per cent of their number have places on the honor list of students for class work. They have been prominent in athletics. Fifty per cent of the foot ball squad, and four men of the regular basket ball five were sendee men. These men have been prominent on the school debating teams and have held with conspicuous success, important offices in student organizations. Important positions upon the editorial staffs of student publications have been filled with credit by men belonging to this group. These men have exercised a wholesome influence upon the life of the school; they have brought the benefits of their deeper experience; they have shown themselves to be men of character and have commanded the respect of all.

During the past year, the number of these men has been decreased, not due to anything within their control, but as a result of disabilities received while protecting that for which they struggled. To these men we pay our homage. The bonus paid by the state of Wisconsin is not an endeavor to compensate those who partook in the great World conflict, for their services and sacrifices cannot be estimated by a pecuniary standard. She knows that this she cannot accomplish, but it is the sole desire of the people of Wisconsin to help them .to gain the necessary knowledge to “Carry On.” In other words, she is still keeping faith. In doing this, she is likewise deriving great benefit, for each ex-service man given aid will increase the earning capacity of the state itself. This state distribution of a bonus to ex-service men in the form of educational aid is a means of solving one of the great economic, social, and political problems. The supplying of an education to the fighting, virile youth of the state fits them to compose a society that will protect humanity in the time of peace in the same noble and gratifying manner as in the time of war. Page 89Page 90 Page 011921 ® —MeletebK)—® One of the most influential organizations of the River Falls Normal School is the Young Women's Christian Association. This group of one hundred fifty young women has tried to assist materially in upholding Christian standards and has endeavored to promote Christian ideals of conduct and service in the every-day life of the school. This has been one of the banner years in the history of the organization here, as its influence has been felt in many ways. A vigorous membership campaign early in the fall culminated in a very beautiful and impressive candle-light service the first Thursday in November, at which time the new members were admitted. Besides its l cnuty this service is impressive because of its significance—"ext iiiguishing the candle of Self and lighting the candle of Service.” The N. C. A., Y. M. C. A., and Y. W. C. A. joined in a very successful reception for new students the first Friday evening of the school year. The Y. M. and Y. W. held a very appropriate and beautiful Thanksgiving Vesper service in the auditorium and have held several other joint meetings, some of which were followed by a social hour. The Y. W. C. A. took charge of the Christmas exercises at Assembly, giving a splendid Program. They served at a tea for J. Stitt Wilson, whose services they helped secure. hey have also entertained their members at several other social events, chief among which was the never-to-be forgotten “Kid Party." The Y. W. C. A. made a generous contribution to the Near-East Relief fund and they help support a missionary in Tokio. All the money used by the society is raised by dues and by chocolate sales except the missionary fund which is the result of voluntary contributions of two cents a week from members. The organization last summer sent as its official representatives to the Lake Geneva Conference, Shirley White, Isabel Scott, and Gladys Godden who brought back such a reflection of the spirit of the conference that it has permeated the work of the entire year and their enthusiasm and vigorous support have done much to give the organization the success that it has had. Plans arc under way to send an equal number the coming summer. Regular meetings have been held every Thursday night with very interesting and helpful programs at each. Most of the leaders have been students but several faculty members have given valuable assistance. The newest and probably best feature of the work this year has been the organization of a large Y. W. C. A. Bible study class at each of the larger Protestant churches of the city. Mrs. J. A. Mallott teaches the class at the Baptist Church. Miss Mabel L. Bridges at the Methodist, and Miss Irma Hathome at the Congregational. These classes have been very successful, since more than one hundred girls have enrolled and attend regularly. Words can not express the appreciation the Y. W. officers and members feel for the kindly assistance rendered by Miss Hathome and Miss McMillian. Thanks arc also due the advisory board, faculty members, and others who have helped make a success of the work this year. The Young Women's Christian Association of 1921, through the pages of the Meletean, pauses to take a long look back thru the years, and. as it greets the alumni of other days who worked in this organization, thank them for their persistence, often in the face of difficulties, which has made possible the opportunities of today, and to take a long look forward, down the years, and wish "Godspeed” to the many whom, we trust, will follow in our footsteps and carry on the torch which we intrust to their care.

These classes have a total membership of more than sixty students. The Young Men’s Christian Association has had a very successful year. The activities were well directed and the interest has been excellent. The membership is about one hundred fifty which is larger than any other normal schoo} in the state. At the beginning of the school year, the society took an active part in arranging for an all school mixer. Another event staged this year was a stag party. A part of the program consisted of a mock trial which proved to be intensely interesting. Under the auspices of this organization. Hon. J. Stitt Wilson gave a series of lectures on “Constructive Christian Democracy.” The lectures were of such excellent character that they made a very profound impression on the entire school personnel. Dr. Winfield Scott Hall also spoke to the students in a scries of lectures on “Social Ethics.” Professor J. P. Jacobson has given very much aid to the organization as its advisor. The officers also deserve much credit for the success of the association. Page 96J9Z1 MeleteaN PAUL BONNES .... MARIE MOYNIHAN . . LEPHARDA GAETZMAX . EDMUND REARDON . . President . . .

The music at assembly was led by the Chorus under the direction of Mr. Powers, and new books were purchased to facilitate the work. However, about the beginning of the second semester, a reorganization took place, and the Girls’ Glee Club was again brought into existence. After this the girls spent a great deal of time preparing their operetta which they presented March 33. This represented an evening in Japan. The first act opened by a number of Japanese girls visning O Hanu San, a young Japanese girl, who was about to celebrate her eighteenth birthday. Some amusement was caused by Chaya, her faithful servant, who appeared to be overburdened by work. The story was told in dialogue and songs, and contained many amusing situations. The second act. two American girls who were touring Japan with their governess for education and pleasure, were impelled by curiosity to enter the garden and while their governess was sketching, they slipped away. The Japanese girls resented the intrusion of a foreigner and awoke the governess, who had fallen asleep at her easel, and pretended not to understand her explanations. O Hanu San came to the rescue and invited the American ladies to remain as her guests and witness the quaint and interesting ceremonies. They accepted gratefully, and won the hearts of all During the busy days of practising Miss Hathorn and Mrs. Powers prepared a luncheon for the girls. They had a very enjoyable evening at Mrs. Powers’ home. Mr. Powers has worked hard, and under his efficient direction the society has attained a high degree of excellence.

At present it is the only organization in the River Falls Normal School which has as its sole purpose the fostering of pep. It is one of the chief factors through which this .school has secured and maintained its famous reputation for school spirit. New members were initiated into the society in November, making a total membership of forty-five girls. The newly admitted were put through a series of blood-curdling stunts on the evening of the initiation. The following week they could be distinguished from other members of school by the conspicuous absence of their curls and ear puffs. For several long days they were allowed no verbal or written communication with men (much to the indignation of the latter). The society meets in South Hall every other Wednesday night. Besides conducting the business of the organization, the girls spend the evenings fulfilling the purpose of the club. Clever posters, advertising the various athletic games and debates of the school, are made and posted. At football and basketball games, the girls appear in a group wearing their red and white costumes. They not only show their pep by cheering the teams, but also by clever stunts which they put on between halves. With Miss MacKcnzie as pilot, the G. O. P. has a promising future. May it continue the good work of fostering and maintaining the famous spirit of the River Falls Normal School. Page 103J92l — MeletebW—® Page 104Page 105Melete jW STUDENT VOICE ?

The question selected for the year’s debates was: Resolved, that Congress should repeal the Esch-Cummins Transportation Act. Twenty-two debaters, nineteen men and three women, competed for places on the squad. The tryout was very closely contested, and showed a wealth of debate material. The judges selected the following for places on the squad: Melvin Thomson, Edwin Schrocdcr, John Williams, Laura Kellar, Galen Kirscher, Alvin Howalt, Leo Shannon, Edward Casey, and James Luther. Work for the debates began immediately after the Christmas recess. Kirscher withdrew early in January, leaving but eight on the squad. Early in February the squad was divided into negative and affirmative teams. Luther, Thomson, Williams, and Miss Kellar composed the affirmative while Howalt. Shannon, Casey, and Schrocdcr made up the negative. The first debate was a no decision one with Carleton College held at Northfield, February 8. River Falls upheld the affirmative, Carleton the negative. Our team consisted ot Luther, Thomson, and Williams. The team showed up well against the collegians and gained valuable experience for the debates to follow. The annual triangular debate with Superior and Eau Claire was held March 4. Our Affirmative met the Superior Negative on the home platform. Superior came with an imposing record of having won on both sides of questions for a number of years and confident of another victory. This time our affirmative team consisted of Laura Kellar, John Williams and Melvin Thomson. The debate was very closely contested, but Superior finally met defeat, our team winning by a 2 to 1 decision. Our Negative journeyed to Eau Claire. Edwin Schroeder, leader of the team, who had been threatened with mastoiditis for several days, was obliged on the afternoon of the- debate to go to the hospital for an operation. This necessitated an eleventh hour change in the line-up. Howalt now became opener, I.co Shannon second speaker, and Edward Casey leader and closer. Each man rose to the decision. These two victories gave us the northern championship. This win was appropriately celebrated at a banquet given in honor of the debaters by the faculty. In oratory the interclass contest was held on January 20 in assembly. Melvin Thomson, with an oration “Violence or Reason" won first, and John Reno with “The Eternal Question," second. The state contest was held at Platteville, March 18. Thomson was awarded sixth place, Oshkosh winning first, Superior second, and Eau Claire third. Taken as a whole, the year in forensics has been a most successful and encouraging one. We hope next year to be state champions in debate as arrangements have been made for a state championship debate. Four of this year’s squad, Howalt, Casey, Schroder, and Thomson, will be back next year. With these four as a nucleus for next year’s squad, prospects are bright indeed. Page no'ATHLETICS MeleterN)J92( ® — MeletebK)—® Jjaptoarb’S l ccorb Coach Hayward, who has piloted football at this school for four years, came to us from the "U” of Minnesota. Previous to his debut in local circles “Pinky" was for two seasons a featuring protege of Doc Williams, the far famed football coach of Minnesota University. In the wee, grid warrior. Dr. Williams readily saw the makings of a clever back. In 1911 “Pinky" got off to a big start with the Gopher team early in the season, in a game with Ames University. In this tilt the little half got away for a forty-eight yard dash which won him great prominence in Minnesota circles. In the fall of 1912, the diminutive half was again on duty. After playing the early part of the season at a half-back position, Hayward supplanted the mighty Tollefson at quarter. His final season in which he played at quarter was one of exceptional brilliance. The coach came to us in the year of 1916. In obtaining this noted gridder for coach, River I'alls got a man who has placed ns in a position .of great prominence in football. During Ins first year here lie put out a team which won the state championship in a title tilt with Milwaukee 22-7. In 1017 lie again put forth a team that won the northern championship. The only defeat suffered by the 1017 team was from La Crosse in the state championship game. During the S. A. T. C. year, when the coach was in the service, football did not enjoy its usual prominence, but was revived in 1910 to its old standard. With the return of many old stars from the service, the 1010 team were northern champions. La Crosse won from River Falls in the title clash by a 14-0 score at La Crosse. With only a few veterans with which to build a team last fall, the coach produced a very polished machine that was again a title contender. After winning the northern championship the team played Oshkosh, the title holders of the South. Oshkosh copped the claim by a close score of 6-0 in the hardest game of the season. It is very doubtful if Mr. Hayward will resume piloting duties next fall as he has expressed his intention of dropping the coaching game. Due to his incomparable record made here, we arc well warranted in earnestly desiring to retain him, as we are assured that his retention will mean the carrying on of the great reputation in football that he has so nobly established for the school.j92l —MeletebK)—$ l c0utne of Jfootfaall Reason The football season of 1920, which marked the closing year of a four year Hayward regime, was one of the most luminous seasons of the little coach's career at this school. With the usual River Falls spirit behind some good football material, coach Hayward produced one of the best teams in the annals of River Falls football. For the last two or three years Normal Schoot football has been drawing some of the best football men in the country. Hence, regardless of public opinion, the Wisconsin Normal Conference has risen to a plane in football that is placed next to the Big Ten Conference, and the Normal teams arc the equal of the best that the northwestern colleges can produce. The first call for football men issued Sept. 15 brought out about thirty men most of whom were very unfamiliar with football togs and tactics. For two weeks the coach experienced promising additions comprising many of the veterans of the previous year. After two weeks of work with the squad, Coach 11 ay ward pitted them against an all star alumni team featuring old stars such as Pcanie Morrow, Lcs Kay, Babe W’igen, Bill and Doug Smith, Art Dodge, I.ovcll, and Simms. The all stars put the team to a veritable test by holding them to a scoreless tie. The team opened the season by journeying to Northfield, Oct. 3, where for their first opposition they met the mighty Carlcton aggregation who won last year's championship of the Minnesota College conference. In this game the Hayward men played the champs to a scoreless tie in one of the closest games ever staged on Carlcton gridiron. The River Falls defense was already showing great strength, but urgent need for a well rounded offense was very evident. The next game was with St. Thomas on Ramer field Oct. 9. The cadet team composed of such stars as Everett McGowan and Mohs gave us one of the most exciting games of the season. This game which gave the Falls a 6-0 win was marked by some very clever football by both teams. It was in this game that the great Chinnock to Gurnoe aerial attack sprang into prominence. With fifty seconds to play in the first half, a forty-yard heave from Chinnock to Gurnoe on the ten-yard line netted the lone touchdown that inserted the winning six points. The game at Superior was the first game of our conference schedule. The soggy and wet condition of the gridiron made fast and shifty football almost impossible. The Red and White came thru with a win on another long pass and ten yards of plunging thru the opponents’ line. Score 7-0. The next big game and that which created great interest among all football enthusiasts was the La Crosse game. For several years. La Crosse has been our mightiest and most worthy football opponents. This year as usual the Maroon and Grey invaded our camp with a fast and shifty grid team. The game was a very snappy brand and contained all of the excellent features of the annual River Falls-La Crosse game. With memories of a defeat in the championship game of the previous year, the Red and White fought hard for a 7-0 win which came on a long pass late in the first quarter. Stevens Point came here with one of the best teams that has ever represented their school. Possessing a large team with great driving power, the Point battled Hayward's men to a scoreless tie. It was a game composed of many thrills and clever football tactics which on several occasions looked good for a touchdown by each team. These drives, however, failed to materialize and a 0-0 score resulted. After winning the northern championship, the Falls eleven met Oshkosh, winners of the southern title in the championship tilt, Nov. 20, on Ramer Field. The Southerners possessed a team of long, rangy men of great drive and well versed in the old grid game. The game sec-sawed for three quarters with neither team having an edge. The down-staters possessed a superb aerial attack in which lay their hopes for a win. With only five minutes to play, the invaders finaljv shot the pass which gave them a 6-0 victory. The Falls made a final threat to score in the last few minutes but the whistle sounded before the great drive could produce. The Oshkosh team was a great machine and must be accredited as being veritable champs as their victory was well earned. Page US1921 ® —MeletebN—® Page 116i9Z ® — MeletebK)— personnel of tf)e football £?quai MURPHY Although he played in big form during the season of 1919, the mighty captain elect has. by his great playing last season, leaped into our hall of fame and won for himself the distinction of being the greatest among the great. We are forced to confirm coach Hayward's statement that Murphy is the best of Red and White grid production. He played in his ever smearing form at his old tackle position during the first part of the season, l.atcr he was. through necessity, shifted to full back, where he proved not only a wonderful tackier but an all around football wizard. The election of “Marsh" to pilot of next year's team is hailed with great enthusiasm, as we are well assured of Murphy captaining a state title team. BUSS Captain Bliss, who will ever be known in "Falls” sportdom as one of.our greatest of grid fame, has played his final game in our circle. It is due largely to his able piloting and high brand of football that the season of 1920 ranks among the best of successful seasons, and made possible the dedication of Ramer Field by a championship team. Stub has played three years in Red and White togs, during which time he has played the big role in the widely known Hayward line which is reputed as the best in college circles. Stub's playing has without doubt won a permanent position in recollections of the gridiron past, and we greatly regret the loss of a captain who carried the River Falls hopes to within a lone touchdown of realization. OTTERSON Centrally located in a line that so greatly featured the Hayward regime we find Hank Ottcrson, who for two years has most admirably filled the pivot position. Hank's playing has been featured as that of one of the most consistent of Red'and White players. During his two years’ career as center he bore the brunt of opposing offensives in the most valiant manner. During his two years of playing, he was ejected from the line-up only once, that being caused by an injury received in the championship game, the last game of his career. Hank's place will be a big one to fill and he will be one of Captain Murphy's most missed • idekickers when they line up next season. CLAPP During the last two seasons, much of the attention of River Falls grid action has been focussed on Clapp, our porky tackle. For two hard but luminous seasons the big boy has plugged the most battered portion of the line to such perfection as to win him state wide fame. It was the old “talk it up and go in and smear 'em” spirit that always evidenced that Clapp was in and going. Because of the fact that prospects for Percy's return are brilliant, we are well justified in possessing soaring hopes for Captain Murphy’s 1921 team. JOHNSON "Bill" Johnson started the season as a Hayward protege who had never played the game and knew little of the gridiron and its environment. It was in Johnson that the coach saw wonderful football metal which was well displayed toward the end of the season. He possessed great speed, and after losing the rough edges he made the appearance of a real vet. With an additional season, "Johnnie” will fill in the lineup as the Arnie Oss of River Fall . MELVIN Melvin at quarter back went big during the absence of Smith, whose shoes he filled in a veteranlike manner. "Mel" is a hard and tenacious worker, and we credit him as being one of the most game of the gang. Melvin is not of the most giant type of football men. hut his speed and judgment greatly offsets this handicap. He has played two years on Hayward’s squad, and has done much toward its success. Page H7Page irS MeleterN)1921 — MeletebN—H Personnel of tfje Jfootball quab QUINN Quinn playing at right half acted as a good running mate for Johnson. Full of fight, pep, and Irish gameness that either sent him through or over, Bill went big in the back field. His shiftiness and speed placed him as a big cog in Hayward’s carrier system. Wc have great hopes of hailing Bill’s bull dog scrap back on Rainer Field with the championship team of 1921. OLSON Olson, or rather our hard luck half, was back again but only to be followed by a heap of miserable mishaps that handicapped him throughout. During the season of 1910 "Ole” was put on the disabled list by blood poison in his leg. In the first game this season he suffered an injury to an ankle which prevented him from showing the fight, speed, and other good football qualities that he possesses. GURNOE It was from the little city of Hayward, Wisconsin, that we received Gurnoc, peer end of Wisconsin Normal football. With Joe wc acquired the greatest scoring element of the team. Playing at left end, he figured big on the receiving end of the best aerial system of attack ever displayed at River Falls. The St. Thomas game featured Gurnoe’s debut into the limelight when he nulled in a forty yard pass for the winning touchdown. By similar tactics lie spelled defeat for the Superior and La Grosse teams. Besides his wonderful offensive playing, Joe stepped into great prominence by his deadly tackling yid also his drop kicking and punting. MORGAN Claire Morgan went big in playing the big part of being one of Hayward's pair of un-matchablc ends. This was Morgan’s first year on the Normal eleven, but he loomed as one of the best defensive ends that ever donned Red and White togs. He was a lighting demon and as a sure tackier he was a source of great worry to any and all opposition. Morgan’s presence on the team next fall will no doubt send River Falls' stock skyward. CHINXOCK Dwight Chinnock, better known as “Dorgan,” played a heavy part in our football show last fall. He played in a regular guard position, but featuring his afternoon performances were his mighty leaves of the pigskin. He earned great prominence on the passing end of the point getting “Chinnock to Gurnoe combination," which will long be remembered in River Falls gridiron. SMITH Smith’s injury during the 1919 season was keenly felt as he was lost to the team for the entire season. However, the Little General came back this year and by his manner of manipulating the grid machine, he well earned the title of field general for the Hayward forces. Bill possesses a clever football head and his size aided him greatly in getting thru holes that weren't. Page ngPage 120J9Z( — MeletebN—® Personnel of tfic Jfootfaall Ifequab FAHLAND Having had the experience of one year under the coaching of,Mr. Hayward, Fahland entered the game last fall as a veteran intent upon retaining his position. He evidenced the old time form that gave great promise and later materially gave us a line plunger that could hit the line as few full backs. He played the game with the old time fight and vim that found a hole, or tore one through, when there was none to be found. Fahland played a vigorous and snappy brand of football, and we all regret the fact that he has fought his last battle for the Normal. GERRETSON Gerretson was one of the fastest gridders that we possesses!. He was a lineman and a fullback who was on any occasion capable of stepping in and substituting whenever needed. During the latter part of the season John went big. showing wonderful smearing ability at a regular guard position. Gerretson’s speed and deadly tackling made him a tower of strength on the kick off or punt. With two years of experience at football, he will prove a big factor in the 1021 team. WILL Will was on duty at the assembling of the gridders last fall as an aspirant to a guard position. After playing on the squad of 1919 he had considerable knowledge of the game, which aided much in his showing of last fall. Altho Jack did not win a letter he was a big factor in the line which coach Hayward pitted against Carleton and Superior. VENNES Vcnnes played a big part in football circles last season. He entered the game last fall with slight knowledge of it, but with a great willingness to learn, so with a marked determination he took some great strides toward football prominence. With great vim, aided by a good football physique, Vennes made a very plausible showing at a guard position which he ably filled during the latter part of the season. KEIFER Kiefer hailed from Wausau, where he had acquired a deserving reputation in high school football circles. Prospects loomed when Al. stepped into a backficld position as fullback. Early in the season his plunging ability plus great familiarity with the_ position marked him as a great find. About the time that Al got in condition to show his worth, he was hit by a bit of ill luck that shattered his hopes for a big season. During scrimmage in a light practice game, he dislocated his shoulder. With this injury, AL was almost forced to take the count as it stayed with him throughout the season. He played in parts 01 games, but the odds were too great to compete with. We have great hopes of Kiefer’s ability to stage a comeback during the season of 1921. DAVIS Davis played his first year under Hayward coaching as one of the prominent figures in first team opposition. Altho he had had some football experience, he entered the game as practically a new hand. He showed much ability, however, by his rapid improvement in the line. He proved himself to be of the staying kind, and had he gone out for football in 1919 he would probably have held a permanent berth in the line. Davis is expected to return next fall, which will add greatly to the personnel of next fall’s team.

It is the opinion of the writer that the day is far in the distance when an athlete of Morrow’s type will appear on the athletic horizon of River Falls Normal School. As a guard on three River Falls basketball quints his work has been remarkable. During the past season he cut a wide swath in conference circles as a guard of the first magnitude. His absence from the ranks will be keenly felt when the Red and White athletes resume hostilities next season. Ducy Wright’s work at the pivot position was high class throughout the entire season. He possessed unusual skill at close range shooting and also a marked adaptability in converting his mates' niissfircs into counters with his clever "follow in” tactics. Besides these valuable qualifications lie possessed the happy faculty of being in the right place at the right time, a quality which can be used as proof of a player's knowledge of the game. Wright's only handicap was his lack of poundage. In Rice, Coach Chandler had an athlete that .added great strength to his machine both on the defense and on the offense. Rice is the hard working, "tearing in” type of player that adds momentum to a team. As captain of the squad he acquitted himself with glory during the past season, lie is a tireless worker and is familiar with every phase of the game, being held in high esteem by his team mates. He made an ideal pilot and was largely responsible for the splendid spirit of co-operation that existed among the players. Carolan, who acted as a running mate to Gumoe all season, did not possess the speed of the Indian, but made up for what he lacked in this line with his shiftiness and uncanny juggling of the ball. The nimble southpaw possesses an unusual style, and proved a puzzle to the opposing guards who seemed unable to solve his unique methods. His brilliance was dimmed slightly in the final game of the season when he failed to come through with his customary brand of basketball. It would be difficult to imagine Jimmie going scoreless in any contest when at his best. He hung up an enviable scoring record during the past season. scoring 58 field goals and 54 free throws for a total of 170 points out of the 446 made by the team. Gumoe, in his first season as a River Falls athlete, proved a sensation. He came to the school with a big reputation, having scintillated in high school circles and also on the far famed Great Lakes basketball team. Joe proceeded to make good from the start on the Red and White quint and kept bettering his brand of basketball as the season progressed. He was easily the speed demon of the squad, and by virtue of his great speed and cleverness with the pivot and short pass he was extremely valuable to a team of the Chandler type. Besides playing a slashing floor game he possessed a keen shooting eye and figured prominently in the scoring column all season. He distinguished himself in the historic Eau Claire game by scoring 4 of the 7 points that brought victory for his team in the last five minutes of play. He also played superb basketball in the championship scries with Oshkosh. Page 12719Z( ® — CiELETEflK) — ® personnel of tlje iBasfeetball jfeciuab Melvin was a member of Chandler's 1920 thousand per cent squad, so his return this year went far toward placing a winning team in the conference. With one year of experience at using Chandler tactics, he made a very commendable showing when called to fill the shoes of Carolan or Gurooe at a forward position. Altho handicapped on size and lacking the experiences of the other two forwards, “Mel” gave us a wonderful exhibition of fight and tenacity. Melvin was not a letter man of the 1920 squad, but with a keen determination he fought his way very descrvingly into several games this year including one half in each championship tilt. Few letter men are more deserving of the much prized sweater and letter than he. In Olson the coach had another athlete of the 1920 squad who held the Falls basketball stock high throughout the season. Being well versed in the short pass method of play, he filled the utility part little short of perfection. Ole’s best appearance was made as a substitute at center, but his size and speed made him a player of great worth in any position. Olson is our hard luck athlete. This season his usual trend of luck endowed him with two weak ankles which resulted from injuries in football. Regardless of this the big boy got into several games and his work spoke well of a worthy basketball player. Chinnock is the third River Falls man whose work loomed on the 1921 team. He played on the local high school team for two years and last year was a member of our famous second team. Chinnock started the season at a regular guard position in which he made a very creditable showing. With the return of Morrow at the beginning of the second semester. Chin had to give way to the “Old Guard” whose place none could fill. Dorgan played several games in which he went big. Chief among his performances was the Minnesota game where the long boy sunk two from distant angles. Chinnock's natural ability on the basketball floor plus a keen eye for long shots made him an ever dangerous opponent. In Hyatt we received more evidence of the caliber of basketball men that Ellsworth can produce. For several years the Hub has given us many stars among whom were Reed, Rice. Kreuger, Vezina, and Peterson, and this year her donation came in the form of one Hyatt. AI made a good appearance from the l eginning which won for him a permanent berth on the squad. Altho Al did not make a letter he made a good showing in all tilts into which he was injected. Hyatt is a hard worker and with thi year's experience he is expected to look big when next year’s basketball men assemble. Fields, who came to us at a late hour, having entered at the beginning of the second semester, hails from Red Wing, Minnesota, where the veritable material for the basketball floor is produced. He played on the Red Wing State Championship team of 1920 so is a man of considerable basketball knowledge. He well complied with all expectations by immediately winning a berth on the Chandler squad, iclds has much natural ability, backed by a physique that will carry him far. With his return next year we expect much, and predictions are great for Captain Carolan’s 1921-22 team. Page tx j9Zi 61ft — MeletebM—® ebieto of 1921 Badfaetball Reason Though dimmed somewhat by the two unexpected reversals at the hands of the strong Oshkosh quint in the two concluding games of the season for the state championship, the 1921 basketball team was nevertheless replete with brilliant performances in the hoop and net art. Prior to the championship series the 1921 team Mazed a flaring trail, and had established a record that clearly outshone its 1920 predecessor. Out of 15 starts the team had won 13 victories, most of them by top heavy scores as compared to 8 victories in 13 starts by the 1920 state championship aggregation. Including the Oshkosh scries the 1921 squad dropped but 4 games out of a total of 17, which is one defeat less than the 1920 team suffered in a 15 game schedule. The 1921 team scored 446 points to their opponents' 282. The 1920 champs scored only 299 points to their opponents' 236, which is another comparison favoring the 1921 crew. The final downfall of the Chandler machine in the two championship tilts can perhaps be attributed to a prolonged season more than any other factor. It is extremely doubtful if the husky southerners could have taken the measure of the Chnndlcritcs had they shown the form in the championship games that they showed against l.a Crosse, Eau Claire and Superior, but the characteristic short pass game had apparently lost its old zip. Indifferent shooting from the free throw line also aided materially in losing the final game. I.tke last season, the team, besides playing conference games, engaged some of the strongest teams in this section of the country. All of these, with the exception of the two University games, resulted in easy triumphs for the red and white. The first game of the season was played against the Minnesota Aggies and resulted in a 47 to 12 triumph for the Falls quint. The next two games were played with the Wisconsin and Minnesota University teams. Due to the lack of preliminary practice, the team was unable to show its true form in either game, the first going to Dr. Mean well's crew by an 8 to 28 score and the second to Minnesota by a 13 to 28 count. From this time on Coach Chandler’s crew did not drop a game until the Oshkosh series. The first conference game was played with l.a Crosse. La Crosse had previously played a close game with Wis., and a 20 to 15 victory registered by the red and white came as a big surprise to the local followers. The next victim to fall before the attack of the Chnndlcritcs was Harry Gammon’s A. C s, This team had scored a victory oyer the 1020 champs and were out to duplicate their previous accomplishments, but Capt. Rice and his mates were hitting a terrific pace and galloped away with a 43 to 11 win. In the next game Stout Institute put up a stubborn fight but succumbed by a 19 to 11 score.. Following this slight scare, came the hair raising Eau Claire battle that came near messing things up in the Chandler camp. With 5 minutes to go the locals were trailing by a 16 to 11 count A phenomenal comeback by the home pets enabled them to squeeze out an 18 to 17 victory over their formidable foe. The Minneapolis Y. M. C. A. was next to fall.. The game was played on the night following the Eau Claire game and was one of the biggest surprises of the season. The mill city aggregation came down with an impressive record behind them and owing to the strenuous tut engaged in by the locals on the previous evening. they were conceded an even chance of winning. But contrary to expectations the red and white machine functioned perfectly and grabbed off a 39 to 10 victory. In the next game.' Superior gave the Chandlerites a stiff battle, but were obliged to take the short end of a 20 to 25 score. Hibbing Junior College fell on the following evening by a 33 to 18 score. On the following Friday night. La Crosse played a return game here. The affair terminated in a second defeat for Coach Keeler’s boys. The game was fast and clean throughout with the Red and White tossers holding a clean cut edge over their rivals, at all times. The final score stood 39 to 17 in favor of the Falls. In tnc return game with Stout the Chandler five did not meet with as stiff opposition as the initial contest, but romped away to a 38 to 16 win. The St. Paul A. C. quint was next beaten in a return game by a 27 to 15 score. Superior came next with a second defeat. Coach Loop’s proteges gave a fine account of themselves but could not stop the Ipcal scoring machine when it got under , way. The last conference game on the schedule was played with Coach Phillip’s Eau Claire aggregation. Owing to the closeness of the initial contest between the two teams, an immense crowd of fans turned out to witness the battle. In strong contrast, to the previous nip and tuck affair the locals experienced no trouble in downing the Phillip proteges. The score at the conclusion of hostilities stood 30 to 10 against the invaders. Prior to the Eau Claire game Coach Chandler had accepted a challenge from Oshkosh Normal to play two games to decide the state title. The first contest was staged at Oshkosh and resulted in an easy triumph for the southerners. The Chandler crew got awav to a bad start and although they succeeded in throttling the Oshkosh scoring machine after the first twelve minutes of play had transpired, they were unable to overcome the heavy lead piled up by their opponents during that fatal period. The final score stood 20 to 8 against the Red and White. In the return game the Falls quint played Coach Whitney’s charges on even terms, but poor shooting form, from the field and also from the free throw line, gave the southerners an 18 to 13 triumph and the state title. Page ijo|9Zl ® — MeletebN—® When coach Chandler issued the call for baseball men last spring it was answered by an entire new squad as none of the letter men had returned. The team composed' of veterans of the game looked big. The infield was a high calibered combination and with the consistent slab work of Rice and Carolan the team played winning baU throughout the season. The first two games were won by 3-1 and 3-0 scores from Mud. Odcnwald, the Hudson portsider, who is now filling a regular berth with Tris Speakers’ champion Indians. Owing to a light schedule, the team had little chance to get to going in best form before the season closed. Out of the six game schedule, the nine lost only one game, that being to Macalcstcr. With every man back from last year’s team, the team this spring will look big in their performances most of which arc scheduled with Minnesota college nines. Standing: Fahland, R.

Outside of the first day openers, which were somewhat unbalanced, due to the rather unusual outcome of the drawings which resulted in the mating of the stronger teams with the weaker members, there was not a dull spot in the entire tourney. Some of the outstanding features of the two day session was the formidable brand of ball produced by the Elmwood aggregation, the surprising come-back of the Hudson five after-a mediocre start, and the downfall of the much-noted New Richmond crew. The latter event was the big upset in the tournament dope and branded the scrappy orange and black athletes as the champion hard luck team of the tourney, the one point elimination being the third of its kind to befall the ill fated northerners in as many years. The four openers played on Thursday afternoon and evening resulted in the elimination of the Clear Lake. St. Croix Falls, Osceola, and Cumberland team by New Richmond, Hudson. Prescott and Elmwood respectively. The losers put up a game fight in each case, but were unable to cope with their more experienced opponents. In the Friday morning semi-finals, Prescott was favored to win over Hudson by virtue of its decisive triumph, over Osceola as compared with Hudson’s rather indifferent start against St. Croix Falls, but coach Kellerman’s boys came back strong and handed the Prescott aggregation a tasty trimming. The New Richmond-Elmwood affair, the outcome of which had become somewhat problematical after the first day demonstrations of the two teams, resulted in a 10 to 9 victory for coach Moser’s proteges. The game was by far the most exciting of the tourney and was a hotly contested affair in which the outcome remained in doubt until the final gun. In the evening finals, Elmwood made it three straight and copped the first honors by downing Hudson by a 13 to 7 count, while New Richmond beat Prescott by a similar count for third place. After the final games came the presentation of the tournament trophies to the four winners by President Ames of the Normal. The winner of first place was presented with the usual silver cup and gold, silver, and bronze basketball emblems were presented to the players on the first, second, and third teams respectively, while to the fourth placers was presented the tournament hall. Following the presentation, coach Chandler made known the personnel of the first and second all-tournament teams as selected by himself and coach llayward. On the first team. Williams of New Richmond and Thompson of Hudson were chosen as forwards, B. Bucholtz of Elmwood as center and Heffron of New Richmond and Gardner of Elmwood as guards. The performances of these athletes wore high class throughout and in each case the player rated the honor conferred upon him. Williams, the doughty little New Richmond forward, although handicapped hv his lack of poundage, easily won for himself a claim to one of the forward positions by his scrappy, aggressive floorwork and by his ability to take advantage of the slightest misplay on the part of an adversary. Thompson, the Hudson center, to whom was assigned the other forward position. showed a keen eye for the net and possessed more than average speed. He was a finished dribbler, and showed marked ability in eluding the opposing guards by his change of pace and dodging tactics. B. Bucholtz, the Elmwood center, who was elected for the pivot position on the mythical quint, easily out-ranked all other contenders for the position. 11c is the tireless type of performers with a dangerous shooting eve. Heffron, tne sturdy New Richmond guard, won his guard position by his effective work in breaking up rival teams’ offensives. 'He is not the finished, classy type of player hut possesses the happy faculty of being on the right spot at the right moment. Gardner, the blond southpaw of the Elmwood aggregation, won the running guard position hands down. He possesses an unusual and unique style, and employed the fake pass with remarkable success. His speed and dodging tactics, combined with his other valuable assets, mark him One of the stars of the tournament. The second tournament team consisted of Olson of Hudson and A. Fisher of Elmwood at forward. McDermott of New Richmond at center, while Fisher of F.lmwood and Giebler of Prescott were the guards. Paye 137gUfjletic Council The function of this council is that of directing the athletic policy of the school and providing funds with which to carry out the schedules. With that object m view, the council has proceeded in such a manner as to deserve great commendation from the entire body of R. F. X. S. followers. The financing of the athletic activities of the school is a most burdensome undertaking. The work of the council this year has been especially commendable. Owing to the tremendous increase in the price of material and traveling expenses, the task of financing has been an especially big one. By shrewd manipulation, the board solicited, with the loyal support of the faculty members and business men. a purse of six hundred fifty dollars which went far toward meeting the athletic expenses of the current year. With such loyal contributions and continued good patronage of town and school folk at all games, this year has been a great success financially, and a victorious one for the teams. The attainments of this body have been well demonstrated by the success of our players and by the fact that there has never been a game cancelled by this school from lack ot funds. Nor has there ever been any hesitation about bringing the best teams of the state before the River Falls fans. With a firm belief in the highest brand of athletics, these moguls have done their utmost to give us the best of skill tourneys. l or championship contests, this council has brought teams from the most distant part of the state. During the last two years, these men have given us three championship games, two in basketball and one in football. . 1 be personnel of the council consists of five faculty members whose names speak preeminence in many lines of school life.

This beautiful spot was chosen by Mr. Joel Foster, the first white man to visit this region. He came here from Illinois in the fall of 1848. by way of St. Paul and Stillwater. While resting in Stillwater, he heard of the productiveness of the Kinnickinnic Valley. On inquiring further into the matter, he was told that the rich land lay near the beautiful falls of the Kinnickinnic. With the aid of a guide, Mr. Foster explored this section of the country. He found that it was a fertile valley, with the added advant e of being a healthful place in which to live. The valley, however, was already inhabited by two tribes of savages, the Chippewas and the Sioux. This proved to Mr. Foster that it was a good place in which to settle. Mr. Foster returned to Illinois in the same fall for the purpose of securing supplies. He brought back with him, in addition to the supplies, a negro boy as a companion and servant. They spent their first winter in the cave on the west side of what wc know as the Glen. Logs were split, up into boards, which they nailed across the opening of the cave to keep out the cold and snow. The next winter they passed in a log cabin which they built the previous fall. The first real settlement was made when Mr. and Mrs. Duncan McGregor came here in the fall of 1849. They purchased a piece of land from Mr. Foster, and lived with him during their first winter here. Other settlers soon followed, among them being the Powell brothers, the Cox brothers, Alva White. G. R. Griffen. G. W. Pratt, J. A. Short, and H. A. Farnham. As the number of settlers increased, a name had to be found for the town. This work fell into the hands of Captain Joseph Wood and Clark Green. After some deliberation they decided on the name "Greenwood,” this being taken from their combined names. By this name it was known from 1S53 until April 1858, when by an order of the County Board it was changed to "River Falls”; on account of the confusion of the mails, a single name had to be selected. "River Falls” seemed to be the most appropriate one. The first town meeting of River Falls was held on April 4, 1854. At this meeting there were sixteen voters, who voted the taxes of the year to be twenty-five dollars. In the same year Joe Foster built a saw mill on the south branch of the river. Three years later the first local paper was started by the Taylor brothers. This paper now bears the name of "River Falls Journal." In 1850. River Falls celebrated the Fourth of July for the first time. Several mills were started about this time, together with a blacksmith shop and a hotel, showing the rapid progress of the village. Manufacturing was greatly helped by the completion of the railroad between River Falls and Hudson on October 26, 1878. This event was celebrated with much festivity. The churches of the village sprang tip rapidly as the number of settlers increased. A Congregational Church was started in 1855, with seventeen charter members, and with Rev. William Gill as pastor. The Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in 1857, under Rev. Miles Lewis. The First Baptist Church was first organized as a branch of that church in Hudson, in 1857. Rev. A. Gibson was appointed to take charge of this church. In 1878, St. Bridget’s Catholic Church was erected, but it did not have a resident pastor until 1887, when Rev. M. Connolly took charge. A Protestant Episcopal Church was organized in 1871 under the leadership of Rector Charles Thorpe, a missionary from Milwaukee. The First United Lutheran Church was organized in 1890 under the leadership of Rev. I.ee. Page N5J92i ® —MeletebN)—® The last church to be organized at this time was the Ezekiel Lutheran Church. It was organized in 1895, by Rev. P. K. Mclang, who died the next year. The progress along educational lines was rapid and natural to a progressive community. The first school house was built in the fall of 1854, long before the railroad was built, on a site donated by the Powell brothers. This building cost over five hundred dollars, which was raised by subscription among the citizens. In 1850 a joint association known as the River Palls Academy Association was formed by some of the citizens. In the same spring they erected a building where the High School now stands, with Benjamin Wilcox as its first principal. This was maintained as an Academy until 1800, when school district number one bought it for a public school building. It burned in the fall of 1879, and a temporary building was put up until the next year, when a permanent building was constructed, with Prof. A! H. Weld as its first principal. In July, 1871, the Board of Regents for Normal Schools made a tour throughout this section of the state with the view of finding a suitable location for the fourth Normal School. River Palls was decided upon as a desirable location, but no action was taken until January, 1872. The contract for building was let in January, 1874. Mr. D. R. Jones, of Madison, drew up the plan of the building, which was erected under his supervision at the cost of over sixty thousand dollars. The site for the Normal School had to be donated, consequently Mr. Brackett, who was to furnish the land, deeded the site to the state. The amount to pay Mr. Brackett was raised by subscription among the citizens of River Palls, who paid him the following fall. In 1805 a school fund was created, which helped to keep up the school financially. The school was opened In September, 1875, with W. D. Parker as president. The faculty was small, but contained some excellent instructors. Prom the beginning, the Normal School has enjoyed a steady growth, and has always had the hearty support of the people of this region. Its influence was greatly felt throughout the state as it was the largest normal school that had as yet been established in Wisconsin. The other normal schools, located in Platteville, Whitewater, and Oshkosh, were smaller and contained less modern equipment. In the summer of 1889, President Parker’s health gave way, therefore he was forced to resign. His vacancy was filled by Mr. J. Q. Emery, who served faithfully for four years. At the end of this time he resigned, and Mr. John Hull, of Illinois, was appointed to take his place. He remained but one year, however; in the summer of 1894 Mr. Parker was re-elected to the office of president. The progress of the school at this time would have been very noticeable had not the building gone up in flames. On the evening of November 29, 1897, the people of the town were called upon to help put out the fire at the normal school building. In spite of the heroic efforts of the firemen, the building fell in ruins, together with most of the movable property. Through the kindness of the citizens, the classes were able to continue their work on the afternoon of the day after the fire. Churches and public halls were placed at the disposal of the faculty; the school flourished in spite of the many difficulties. As the winter was exceptionally mild, no trouble was experienced in getting from one building to another. In September of the following year, the old building was replaced by a better and more modern building which still stands. It contained all modern conveniences, such as electric lights, gymnasium, baths, physical apparatus, and a system of telephones. Under the whole building a basement was constructed, which contained the wardrobes, janitor’s living rooms, the baths, and the machinery, and coal house. On the first floor was located tli'e model school, eight or ten practice rooms, and the office of the supervisor. The second floor contained the assembly room, the library, the main office, and eight recitation rooms. The assembly room was located in the room which is now the library; Mr. Davison’s rooms served as the library, while the main office occupied what is now the girl’s Test room and the office Page 146J9Z| ® — MfletebN—® of the Dean of Women. The physical and chemical laboratories, the museum, and the drawing rooms were all situated on the third floor. As the new agricultural building, now known as North Hall, was completed in 1914, the model school, assembly room, physical and chemical laboratories, the president's office, and the men's gymnasium were all transferred from the old building into the new one. This left more room in the old building to be utilized for other purposes. The progress of the River Falls Normal School is very well shown in all lines of activities, but especially in the development of its agricultural department In 1912, the Blood tract of fifteen acres was added to the campus, which already consisted of ten acres-The Burnett tract of thirty-two acres was added in 1913, while about forty acres was added to the normal farm in 1917. The modem dairy bam and milk house were completed in 1920, increasing the value of the farm very much. The barn is equipped with electric lights, waterworks, twin silos, and stanchions and stalls for the animals. The dairy herd supplies milk to many of the citizens of River Falls. The main object of the school is to give the students agricultural training by practical experience and work. This school is now the main school in Wisconsin for teachers training in agriculture, under the law giving federal aid for vocational agricultural instruction. In 1920 the new athletic field was completed. It is located about two blocks east of South Hall. The new field, which is called "Ranter Field,” in honor of our regent, Mr. Rattier, has several advantages over the old field. One of these is that the ground is elevated on two sides, giving a larger crowd the privilege of seeing the games. It is also in a better location, being on the public highway, and contains a larger place for parking automobiles. The prospects for the future advancement of the River Falls Normal School are very promising. A central heating plant, costing about WO,000, is to be installed during the summer of 1921. With this plant, all of the buildings will be heated front one center, making it possible for the work to be done much more efficiently. The basement of South Hall is to be remodeled in the near future, thus eliminating the crowded conditions in that building. The state governing boards of education have recognized the need of River Falls for a new training school building as ranking the first in the state. If appropriations for building purposes are made by the legislature, this building, which will cost about $230,000 will be erected just east of North Hall. It will have an cast front, corresponding to the front of North Hall, and will be connected with it. The construction of a new building will give more room in North Hall for the science and agriculture departments. We hope soon to have this building, as it will be a decided benefit to the school and community. Page 1471921 ® —MeletebN)—® VL )t eternal (Question How must I live? What must I do to have life and life more abundant? That is the question that man ever asks; that man must ever answer. That was the question of the ages. That is the question of the .hour. Come back with me through the ages and sec man’s answers to this eternal question, man’s solutions to the problem, and you will see the onsweep of humanity from savagery to civilization. Come back from this age of action and turmoil, from this vast universe of to-day to the small contracted world of yesterday, when man fought with knotted club; when he was a beast of the field. See him, crouching savage of the wilds, bowing before wood and stone in an attempt to learn how to live; terrified as he imagines a hostile spirit in every tree, in every cloud, in every wind; or now, transfixed with awe, gazing into the heavens that swarm with his own fear-made demons of fury, gods of superstition. Before these evil creatures of his own imagination he is helpless, paralyzed by ignorant fear. Before good spirits of his own imagination he wastes his life or is lulled into idle dreaming. See him in his desperate struggle for existence, groping among Nature’s mysteries, trying in some way to understand himself and his surroundings in order to better his conditions of life. Although enveloped in darkness and ignorance, his weak and cowering soul feels a divine mystery hovering about him always. See him blind and ignorant, vainly attempting to solve the eternal question, as he staggers under the yoke of superstition. In order to propitiate his deities, we see him lying on spiked beds of torture, or prostrate oil the burning sands of the desert, arms outstretched, face downward, worshiping some unknown god. Here is a lone soul, crouching on a pedestal, dreaming of Nirvana as joyful life rushes on. Here we sec one offering gifts and sacrifices to his gods. In all this we see the desire to understand and be understood, to propitiate, to atone, to pay with the body for the sins of the soul. Ignorance! Failure! The morals and religions of the world are the dramatizations of man’s solutions of the great problem. All people, in every epoch, crystallize their convictions concerning what they deem most worth while. And these dramatized beliefs and practices have been codified and sloughed off as people have advanced in knowledge. New discoveries and new experiences bring new conceptions of what is worth while. New doubts threaten old faiths and new faiths succeed old doubts. Thus doubts and faiths build new answers and mould religion and morals. Whether these answers are for better or for worse, whether they enrich or degrade life, depends on whether they are founded on knowledge or on ignorance of great truth. Men's progress from savagery to civilization, from life unsatisfactory to life more abundant, is one long struggle against ignorance and superstition. The early Egyptians and Hebrew's believed in revelations through dreams. To-day we look to Science to reveal Nature and her wonders. Science holds vast secrets whose discoveries will revolutionize the thought of all humanity; they will enable us to control disease, thus saving millions of lives; they will take from superstition its last prop, ignorance, which holds it up to deceive mankind; they will foster knowledge and ennoble conduct; they will clarify and simplify religious theories. As knowledge increases, mystery disappears. To-day we worship and idealize knowledge of Nature, of human nature, of industry and of government. We see the divine in art, in music, in science and in literature, in that which helps to beautify and enrich life. We see the divine in the Scriptures as they help man solve the great problem of living. For ages we have seen the divine in the new truth and divinity in the discoverer. He is divine who reveals some truth, some law of Nature which uplifts humanity. Yesterday, Page 148 9Zi ® — MeletebK)—® Edison caught a glimpse of truth, and to-day a million homes arc lighted and cheered by magic current. Yesterday, he toiled in New Jersey, to-day his creation in the lonely ranch house in the Wyoming hills cheers and delights the weary folk as they listen to music by the world’s great artists. Lincoln faced millions of black souls and declared that “No man is good enough to govern another man without the other man’s consent." That is the truth that stirs the heart of a democratic humanity. Roosevelt’s “Square Deal” has inspired continents. Darwin and Spencer, standing at the dawn of the modern age, saw the truth in evolution when they explained that nothing is, but everything is becoming. Confucius, lone voice from the past, cries out, “There is no salvation by proxy. There is no atonement for sin. Each man controls his destiny by his conduct and by that alone." And therewith was uttered an answer to the eternal question. Jesus of Nazareth, the greatest moral reformer the world has ever known, said, "1 come that you might have Life and Life more abundant.” Jesus, the man,-stands out among all ages and peoples as one of the most commanding personalities of our race, as one who has revealed the profoundest of truths. The lone voice of Jesus proclaims through the ages, man’s eternal need of tender human sympathy and faith in the unseen forces of Nature. In that way he saw the perfection of life. These are but few of the specific instances of innumerable cases where humanity has been helped and made happier by sympathetic understanding and revelation of truth. When man shall understand his fcllowman; when he has a deeper insight into Nature; when he lives up to his principles; then shall we see on the horizon of the world’s progress, the dawn of a new era, an age of new revelation, an age in which man shall do right, not because of fear, but because of a sense of justice; because he has learned that he can work more harmoniously with Nature and indirectly with God. He will see that personal life is the only field of human activity, and the perfection of that life, the only salvation. He will have a truer philosophy of life, a higher standard of morality. His will be a religion of knowledge, endeavor, service, and conduct that will go hand in hand with science and all advanced thinking; whose creed is rooted and grounded in eternal laws and truths. This will be the source of his inspiration for right living. It will create in him a desire for knowledge; a desire to do right that will be followed by action. As he resolves in his own way to foster the world’s finest sense of justice, of purity, of truth, and the obligation of man to man, he will answer that eternal question, “What must I do to have life and life more abundant ?” JOHN C. RENO. Page mJ9Z1 ® — MeletebM “iSn ©be to tfje tilnljonoreb anb tilnSuiiB” Listen, my children, and you shall hear. Of the Normal scrubs,—not Paul Revere. This is a poem of men you know. Just keep your seats I'm going slow. Before I'm thru you’ll know the scrubs For each man now gets dues and rubs. From end to end I will get them all, Thin man. fat man,'short and tall. There were seven in front and four behind Plus Papa Chandler’s master-mind. His name is Art, he is from Elk Mound— A small man from a smaller town. To see him play will make you laugh. But no flics sit.on Arthur Paff. A star observer is Herbie Kelm, Who stands up slim like a stately elm. Plays come fast and plays come slow But Bliss would hit him, and down he’d go. Nohr and Seefcldt at the guards did play Many a time they saved the day. Breaking thru the 1st team line And getting their back-lield from behind. At center, “Forensic" Casey, the oval spun. Hugging the ball was to him great fun, Irish he is and now there's no mistake. He is there at ‘football, fighting, and debate. At left-tackle we played a Swede, He hit them hard, he did indeed He is a hoy from a stalwart race Do you know the guy with the girlish face ? A fighting end—“Scotty" Goddcll When he got the ball, he’d run like -- everything. Tall and stately, with golden hair; With the feminine sex he is also there. Roberts at quarter took Parker's place Who joined the Reg’s with their slower pace, I or touchdowns from passes he is a wizard. But in Robert's town he is a blizzard. From Hudson, we have "Kitty” Kat the Pug He knocked out Stout with an awful slug. From left-half position he would carry the ball That is, he would if he didn't let it fall. Right-half Cairns, we call him “Doc" When the 1st team punted, he would try to block. Water and pills at the games he would carry; Now a Brewer s daughter he threatens to marry, lie went to Madison for the above we believed But that slick old “Doc" had us all deceived. For Daddy Chandler’s well known smile c would work for hours and run more miles. He used a bag of artful tricks To give the Reg’s some terrible licks His little daughter made the scrubs all glad. But our pep that lucky day made Hayward mad. Now I will stop, it is getting late— i . J d ?n 1 wam to n,eet my fate.
