SOUTH HALLHow, without malice murmuring glide thy current Oh sweet Kinnikinic of days gone by.
If thou art worn and hard beset with sorrows. Go to the woods and hills I—no tears Dim the sweet look that nature wears.

The greatest achievement of an educational institution is to raise the moral and spiritual level of its student body. Education is consecrated to the betterment of mankind, not to the training of a few selected leaders. In a democracy it is highly important that this fundamental conception be kept clear. No more serious mistake could be made than that our institutions of higher learning be organized and administered in the interest of the select. Education in our country must have as its objective the improvement of the intellectual and ethical perspective of the great mass of our citizens. We do not need holders of world’s records; we do need the intellectual and ethical elevation of all.
American schools and colleges are the best training grounds for citizenship. The American student entertains a high type of loyalty for his institution. This is one of the splendid things connected with student life. It is a splendid thing for these institutions to have the enthusiastic loyalty of these young men and women, but the chief significance of the kindling of these sentiments lies in the profound influence upon the lives of the students themselves.
The most sinister feature in the life of the American people today is their cynical contempt for law and government and the evident purpose on the part of great classes of our citizens to use government, not as an instrument of justice to all, but as a means whereby some class benefit may be seized.
Idealism is a priceless virtue. It is an attribute of youth. We must look to the young people of today—the students in our institutions of learning— to keep alive our idealism and to foster those sentiments of honor and loyalty without which our free institutions cannot endure.
Let the River Falls Normal School, its student body and faculty, always endeavor to create an institutional atmosphere in which all the higher qualities of citizenship may develop and flourish, and let there be placed first among these virtues, loyalty. And let this civic and personal virtue mean: loyalty to friends, loyalty to our school and loyalty to our country.
1L1KE to think of our Normal School as more than a pile of brick and mortar, more than a collection of class-rooms presided over by instructors, more than a body of men and women seeking to learn the fundamentals of the profession of teaching. To me, it is rather a great pulsating institution rich in spirit and tradition, reaching out its arms throughout the state, extending its sphere of influence year by year seeking to fulfill its mission and binding us to it in bonds of loyalty and love.
It is my hope that you, who go out this year into various fields of activity, will carry with you this conception of your Alma Mater, that you will look back with pleasure to the days that you have spent within her walls and that you will achieve the success that she would wish you to attain. May you, who will return again next year, catch the full spirit of the Red and White and carry on the duties that the outgoing class have laid down. In this, I offer you my heartiest co-operation confident that you will enter into the life of the school with an appreciation of the added responsibilities that you will be called upon to assume.

ALTHOUGH the duties of a dean of women differ somewhat according to conditions in various institutions, in general, these duties have to do with the living arrangements, the social, and the academic life of the young women students of the institution. Where dormitories are provided for women students, this branch of her work is comparatively simple and much easier to administer than where no such provision is made. The personal contact, which the dean of women establishes with students, makes it necessary to provide ample time and opportunity for personal interviews. Matters of health, social activities, and scholarship are continually being brought to her attention.
The young woman student is energetic and ambitious. She has a deep .st in life and is preparing to take an active part in the world's construc-Notwithstanding her apparent light-heartedness, and her devotion

O those old days! Those near yet far off days I Paged with dear legends, with memories of our School.
TO THE CLASS OF 1922
In planning and carrying out common enterprises you have received valuable training in initiative, in boosting class projects, • in forming good business habits and in doing something worth while for the school. If you make proper use of their training you will do yourselves and the world much good and your labors as a class shall not have been in vain.
You will need this training, need all that you have learned as students at River Falls to meet life's changing conditions. You are going out into a new world. The walls between nations are breaking down. Across the ruins, men are shaking hands. We are coming to think less in terms of our own particular country and more as citizens of the world. Here fortunately your education and training will help you. Your horizon is wider, your sympathies have been broadened. You can not only say "I am an American" but "1 am a man." Above the nations is humanity. That is your field. Let your motto be "homo sum."
Your adviser.THE SENIOR CLASS The history of the class of 1922 began in 1917 but it was not qntil last year that its activities assumed any place of importance in the life of the school. Since then a high mark of excellence has characterized practically every activity put on by the class of 1922. A great amount of talent has been shown by the students of this group. In every branch of athletics, in debating, oratory, and scholarship, our class has been well represented.
As we leave our Alma Mater we leave it to the Juniors of the present year and the underclassmen to uphold the honor and high standards of our school. We wish to see them perpetuate the progress and school spirit which is so evident here.
IK • We' wish'to thank our worthy president, Mr. Ames, and the members of the faculty for the faithful guidance which they have given us during our years- of school life here. Especially do we wish to thank our class advisor Mr. Whitenack for the services he has rendered our class. No matter how difficult the task to be accomplished he was always ready- to- lend a helping hand or give some good advice.
Time moves swiftly. The history of the class of 1922 has been written and the class itself as a material thing will soon pass out of existence. Its members go out into the world filled with the determination to do justice to the reputation of their Alma Mater, and ever mindful of the great duty which they have taken upon themselves in going out into the schools of the state as teachers. In the onward flight of time the class of 1922 will soon be forgotten, but fond memories of school life will live on and the members of this graduating class will go forward imbued with the true River Falls spirit ever loyal to their Alma Mater.

The graduate Senior Class is the youngest class in the school, being organized in the fall of 1920, and since its birth it is recognized as one of the prominent classes of the school. It has tripled its membership since last year and made its influence felt throughout the school. We owe much of our success to our class advisor, Mr. Prucha, who has given us valuable advice and worked diligently with the. class officers throughout the year.
Even though we are the smallest class in school, our members have taken a very keen interest in all lines of school activity. We w£re well represented in athletics. In football we had Johnson, IVIelvin and Clapp on the regulars and Nohr, Moynihan, Stelzer, Paff and Seefeldt on the All-Americans. In baseball we had Melvin. Carlson, Davis and Fahland. Nor were we without representatives in girls athletics; Marion Sylvester starred here. In forensics we were represented by Howalt who was a member of the championship debating team. Our class also had the distinction of furnishing an occupant for the most important position in our school activities, that of Cheer Leader, which was very creditably handled by "Art" Paff, who kept up the school pep and enthusiasm throughout the year.
Besides athletics and forensics, we have members of our class which have distinguished themselves along the lines of science and research, namely, Larson, Reno and Buth.
One of the most talented members is "Andy," the class clown, noted especially for singing, jigging and impersonating. Our other president, "Art" Gordon, has ably filled a position on the Student Voice Staff. "Scottie" Williamson is noted for his popular jokes, and also holds the strings of the class pocket book. Other members of our class who have faithfully supported every activity of our school are Vance, Nottestad, Christenson, Slatter and Wilson.
The girls of our class have made up in quality and pep what they lacked in numbers; Stewart. Van Wyke, Sylvester and Rand have whole-heartedly fostered and stimulated a spirit which would be difficult to duplicate.
We claim the distinction of leading all the other classes in romances. Miss Stevenson, Mr. Howalt and Mr. Nohr being victims of Cupid’s arrow.
Some of our students left us at the end of the first semester. These were “Bill" Johnson, Roy Melvin, Percy Clapp. Clarence Nohr, Athol Monyhan, Ida Bell Stevenson and Florence Parsons.
We feel confident that with the foundation that has been laid, the following Graduate Senior Class will find it an easy task to take its place in all school activities that tend toward the making of a better school.GRADUATE SENIORSPage rt

We, the Seniors of tomorrow, cannot help but feel highly elated over the success of our class during the past year. We have been ably represented in all activities: literary, musical, athletic and oratorical.
Since September the thirteenth, we have been blazing our trails into the intricacies of Normal life. Coming, as we did, from all parts of the state, it was very difficult to make a definite inroad into school activities; but after we had organized, the bond of Juniorism became strong and lasting.
In uniting here, we not only united student with student, but we united into one great union, the choicest of the native Wisconsin element.
The Seniors have aided us greatly in the work of the past year, and we have a profound respect for them. When we grasp the reins of Seniordom next September, we hope that we may be bigger and better than those that have gone before; not because of a feeling of superiority, but because of the good will and experience handed down to us by the Class of '22.Page 75tt 'SPJ

River Falls has a most satisfactory record in forensics this year. Our debaters won the state championship as well as the championship of the Northern league. Our orator, Melvin Thomson, won third in the state oratorical contest. Our representatives have at all times had the united and loyal backing of the student body.
The work for the year began with the debate try-out the first week of December. From a group of twenty-five who tried-out for the squad, the following ten were selected: Melvin Thomson. Edward Casey, Alvin Howalt.
Landon Chapman, R. L. Liebenberg, Frank Allbee, Philip Mitchell, John Ger-retson, Gordon McConnell and Everett Smith. This squad immediately began work on the question for this year, "Resolved, That the Kansas Industrial Court law should be extended to the rest of the country through national law."
The annual triangular debate with Eau Claire and Superior was held March 3rd. The Falls' negative, consisting of Landon Chapman, Edward Casey and Frank Allbee, met Superior at the northern city and also they put up a valiant fight. They lost by a 2 to I count. The affirmative, debating against Eau Claire on the home platform, however, more than made up for the defeat by scoring an unanimous victory. Alvin Howalt, Rex Liebenberg and Melvin Thomson made up this team. The Eau Claire affirmative defeated the Superior negative at Eau Claire by a 2 to I decision. This made us champions of the Northern league for the second successive year.
Meanwhile Milwaukee and Stevens Point emerged victors in the debates in the other two leagues. Stevens Point eliminating Oshkosh and La Crosse, and Milwaukee, Whitewater and Platteville. A debate for the state championship was arranged. On March 31 our affirmative debated the Point at Stevens Point while our negative met the Milwaukee affirmative here. The Stevens Point affirmative journeyed to Milwaukee. Our affirmative won a very closely contested debate from the Pointers by a 2 to I decision while our negative came back with a bang and scored an unanimous decision over Milwaukee. These victories gave us undisputed title to the state championship. The winning of their championship was celebrated in proper form in a special assembly and at a banquet given by the faculty in honor of the debaters.
The state oratorical contest was held at Stevens Point March 17. Melvin Thomson, our orator, made a splendid showing winning third place with an oration entitled "The Greater Fellowship." Superior won first place and Milwaukee second. A male quartette accompanied our delegation to the contest.
Many of debate veterans will graduate this year; Thomson, Allbee, Howalt and Liebenberg will be missed next year. But with Chapman and Casey of this year's championship team, and Mitchell, Gerretson and Smith, alternates this year, back River Ralls should be very much in the running for the championship again next year.

COACH MITCHELL’S RECORD
Coach Mitchell came to us two years ago from
tation as a debater. At the time of his coming to
River Falls, forensics were at a very low ebb and a
winning debate team was pretty much of a curiosity. Due to his efforts. River Falls has made some remarkable strides forward in debating and oratory. Last year’s debate team won the Northern Championship and in all probabilities would have won
the State Championship if arrangements for such had been made. The record of this year's team is well known to everyone and needs no further com-
ment. During Mr. Mitchell's career here. River r a j.... a.

It is impossible to say too much about our football coach. Having played at the quarterback position on Minnesota’s Championship team two years and turned out three championship teams at our Normal, we feel that in “Pinky we have the best coach in the state among the Normals. He knows the game as few men do', and above all he knows how to get the best out of a man. Those of us who never saw football until he introduced us to the game know best his ability to bring out a man's real football worth.
Few of us realize what the last season's work meant to the coach. It had been his dream and aim to turn out a State Championship team this year. He put all of his football knowledge and strategy into use last fall, but so numerous and repeated were the misfortunes that fell to the lot of the players, that it, apparently, was of no avail. Though another coach would have given up before the conclusion of the season, “Pinky's" pugnacious instinct and his affinity for the sport, refused to be subdued. As a result of this determination on his part, the season, which for a time was a most discouraging one, turned out to be a real glory. A glory which gave full compensation to those who had struggled valiantly throughout a hard season.
Those who were members of this year's team are proud to belong to the team our coach called “The Team That Came Back."
"Pinky" HaywardA Summary of the Season.
The football prospects began to loom brilliantly with the opening of the new school year. About fifty men reported for practice, among them several veterans and letter men of the previous year. The returned letter men were Capt. Ed Murphy. Percy Clapp. Roy Melvin. John Gerretson. Clair Morgan and Earl Fahland. There were several men from college teams, among which were Albert Butenhoff and Melvin Liplce from Ripon and Perle Clanton from the Lawrence College championship team of 1920. There was also a large number of candidates who had had experience on high school teams.
Coach Hayward does not need an introduction to the followers of River Falls teams, and his ability as a coach is unquestionable.
As assistant. Coach Hayward had Otto Eggebrecht. better known to River Falls fans as "Eggs," captain of the 1916 championship team of River Falls. He has had a year's experience on the varsity at the University of Wisconsin.
The first preliminary game was played on Ramer Field against the Shat-tuck Military Academy. The cadets went down to defeat of 7 to 0. Nearly all the men of the squad were used in this game.
On October 8. River Falls invaded the Gopher State to battle the strong Carleton gridders at Northfield. The Minnesota team just naturally seemed to have their own way and defeated the Falls 63 to 0. Morgan and Gerretson received injuries in this game that kept them off the squad for a part of the season.
St. Mary’s College team was the next victim who went down to defeat of 21 to 0. In this game our team showed considerable improvement over the previous games. The aerial attack was the outstanding feature of the game. The aerial attack also proved to be of considerable worry to our conference opponents later in the season.
This year the Normal Conference was put on a percentage basis over the entire state instead of being divided into a northern and southern section as in previous years. River Falls had a schedule of five games, two of which were played at home.
The first conference game was played against Stout on Ramer Field. Stout stepped into the lead the early part of the game with a touchdown, and scored again in the third quarter. River Falls scored in the second quarter.
THE ST. MARYS GAME
P tc IJ9Although the Falls held the small end of a I 4 to 7 score, no one will admit she deserved to lose the game.
The next game Oshkosh defeated the Red and White 14 to 2 at Oshkosh. This game was played on a muddy and soggy held, giving little chance for the team to put forth its best efforts.
Eau Claire was next in line and for the first time in several years were successful in defeating a River Falls team. Our opponents held the high hand the first half by scoring three touchdowns and as many goal kicks as compared with two touchdowns and one goal by the Falls the second half. In this game Raab won glory for himself by a 40-yard run for a touchdown. Several of the regulars were on the side lines during this game, and Bakke and White-nack, two new recruits, were in the line-up. This was the last game Morgan was able to play, as injuries kept him out the rest of the season.
With three defeats and two of the hardest games still staring them in the face, things were looking bad for the Red and White. However, the student body kept up a loyal support and spirit to a losing team that will be long remembered as the spirit back in 21. After fighting hard luck and uphill games all season, the boys staged a comeback that has never been equalled in the history of the school.
On November I I, the strong Superior team invaded Ramer Field and much to its surprise could no more than tie the score. In the early part of the first period the Falls scored a touchdown and a goal. The rest of the time kept the northerners fighting an uphill game. Superior tied the score in the latter part of the last period. Gerretson was back in the line-up for the first time since his injury in the Carleton game.
The last game was the big surprise of the season. Due to injuries. Raab was unable to make the trip, and for the first time in his football career Johnson was called upon to play the quarterback position. The Falls kept the Maroon and Grey on the defense a greater part of the game and just turned all dope upside down. In this game Whitenack made good by making a goal kick from the 40-yard line, thus saving the day for us.
Probably one of the biggest handicaps Coach Hayward had to contend with during the season was the large number of injuries, causing a change in the line-up from one game to another.
THE EAU CLAIRE GAMEPersonnel of the Football Team.
ED. MURPHY, Captain
The 1921 team was proud of its captain, for in him we had not only the best player of several seasons, but also an out and out clean player. Ed. proved to be our best ground gainer and when on defense no one ever got by him.
During the three years Ed. has played on the first term, we have never seen him lose his temper. He has showed his supporters that a man can play football clean, yet play it hard. He easily made the All-Conference Eleven. Captain Murphy will be missed in River Falls Football Circles.
"BILL JOHNSON, Captain-Elect
"Bill” was the best liked man on the gridiron. He was the hard luck member of the squad, but we have an innate feeling he will turn the table in that respect next year. Though out of the game for the largest part of the season, because of injuries, he was determined to get back into the game. He played halfback during the two years he was on the squad, but was forced to take the quarterback position in the La Crosse game, a position he most ably filled. Johnson had more speed than any other member on the team, and proved himself our best end runner.
We are glad "Johnnie" can be back next year, and we hope that as a captain he will pilot a championship team.
Playing his third and last season for the Red and White. Percy in his old position as guard played.up to his reputation in the "Falls" sport circles by more than doing his bit for .'-'Our Normal." - Always at the bottom of the pile and a whirlwind at stopping opposing forces, Clapp was ever on the job. The strength of the line was more sure and more dependable because; of his presence there. He will always be remembered by River Falls football fans as one of the surest tackles on any conference team. It was the good fortune of River Falls that he was able to be with us for three years on the Hayward eleven.
John Raab, playing his first year with the Red and White, displayed his football qualities as quarterback with excellent work. "Rabby" was always on the job and was always to be seen where he was most needed. The scoring element of the Hayward eleven was greatly enhanced by the work of the little backfield man. We are expecting great things from Raab in Captain Johnson's 1922 team.
Turner comes to us from the River Falls high school where he showed great football possibilities. These possibilities were more than fulfilled when he stepped into the position of left half on the Normal Eleven. Full of fight, pep and natural ability, he starred big in the back field. His ability with end runs, as a tackier, and to get through the opposing line makes Standish a most desirable backfield man, and, with him back next year, we have great predictions for next year's Championship team.
We take off our hats to Roy. Those of us who know him best know that he was one of the best sports River Falls Normal ever had on her gridiron. Having at heart only the welfare of the team, he proved himself ready to do
Page inPage its
Kb bit. and never considered Kb own personal gain. We wish more of that team spirit revealed itself in athletics. Roy possessed the necessary qualifications of a River Falls football player, determination, love of the game, and most important of all. the idea of sportsmanship. Roy never missed a single practice, and always gave the best he had. He was one of Hayward's skilled field generals.
In his second year on the local eleven. Clair proved himself invaluable in hb position as right end. Hb sure tackles, and his ability to break up opposing interferences was demonstrated throughout the season. Being disabled towards the close of the season. Clair was not able to play in the last two conference games of the year, nevertheless hb work of last year and thb year b pointed out as being of the best among the ends in the history of thb school.
While playing in hb second year on the River Falls Normal squad. "Jack" showed great ability as a tackier and as Standish's running mate. Being disabled in the game with Carleton College, he did not play all the games during the season, but in those which he did participate he showed great speed and tackling ability. He will prove a desirable asset to Captain Johnson's 1922 team.
Towards the last of the season "Ted's" football ability was discovered and he was put into the game for drop-kicking for which he had an unequaled ability. The last game of the season with La Crosse Normal was won by a score of three to nothing, the drop-kick being made by Whitenack from behind the fifty-yard line.
"Booty" came to us from Ripon College, where he had had considerable football experience, and thb. combined with his speed and ability to pick forward passes out of the air, won for him a regular position at left end. Hb speed enabled him to get down on punts, thus preventing hb opponent from receiving and advancing the ball to any extent. In him we had an all-around athlete. We are sorry that he will not be with us next year; hb loss will be keenly felt.
O. E. CLANTON
This was Clanton's first year at River Falls. During the first part of the season there was some uncertainty as to what position he should occupy, tackle or end, but he soon got a berth in the tackle position. He could be changed from tackle to end on short notice and be relied on to fill hb place. He was a valuable man to the team because of his ability to get through on defense and stop the rushes of his opponents. We shall miss him next year, for, aside from being a football player, "Clant" was well liked, and he also knew and showed football sportsmanship.
From the very first Lipke found and retained his position, that of right tackle, a place he filled most cred'tablv. This was hb first year for the "Falls," but he conceived what the River Falls football spirit consisted of from the very first. In him we had a clean, hard and consbtent olayer, and we believe he deserves the credit of being the best man at breaking up the opponent's interference. No one got through him for any gains. Lipke was well
liked by all the men on the team, and his cheerfulness put life and determination into the rest of the squad. We deeply regret the fact that he will not be with us next year.
Casey playing at right guard was a reliable man on the squad. He filled his position well, and could be depended on to do the best possible work whenever opportunity offered.
Coming to us from the local high school. "Pog” Moline filled the position of center with the ability of the true football player. He showed up this ability all during his work as center, especially at Eau Claire. With Moline back next year. River Falls Normal will have one who will be there with the goods.
This was Sam’s first year on the River Falls football squad. His combined weight, pluck and determination made him an important factor in Coach Hayward's machine. Sam made rapid improvements under Hayward s coaching. and we wish he could be back next year. Sam always advocated clean playing, and he never lost his head nor his temper. Sam always worked hard, and his efforts will long be remembered and appreciated.
Much credit must be given to the famous All-Americans who were organized just before the conference games. Under the able coaching of Mr. Eggebrecht, the All-Americans developed into a good team and represented all our opponents throughout the season.

ON THE SIDE-LINESCoach Eggebrecht came to our Normal during the school year of 1915-1916 from the Wausau High School.
In football that season. "Eggs" won a place on first team and was especially good at making interference and receiving passes. He was chosen captain of the team for the following year.
In basketball "Eggs" played very efficiently the position of center. He was considered the best center that had ever played for River Falls.
That year we won State Championship in both football and basketball.
During the fall of 1916-1917, Captain "Eggs" piloted our football team through another successful year. Due to his superior ability he was given the position of left half and calling the
In basketball this same year, "Eggs" played his usual position of center. His ability at this work was incomparable. During this season "Eggs" never played against a man who was his equal.
This year the Normal again won State Championships in both football and basketball. We are sure that "Eggs" was in no small way responsible for bringing the championships to River Falls.
The next report that we have from "Eggs" is that he is making a wonderful success in Athletics at the Wisconsin "U".
After making a record for himself there, we now find him back at his Alma Mater wisely guiding the basketball team and handling physical training. Along with this he is planning to put out the best track and field meet this school has ever had.
We are indeed fortunate in having Mr. Eggebrecht back at River Falls.
COACH OTTO EGGEBRECHT
p t 1922 =
Coach Eggcbrccht, Luther. Bctzcl. Butenhoff, Cnpt. Carolan. Claflin. Hyatt. BergmanSUMMARY OF THE SEASON
This year we looked to Otto Eggebrecht as pilot for the squad of '22. Otto was back this year not as in previous years, as an athlete, but as molder of the basketball material. Otto's reputation as an athlete is beyond criticism, and we were glad to recognize in him the coach of our quint of '22.
The squad first assembled was composed of men with varied basketball experience. Of last year's men we had Carolan, Fields, Hyatt, and Melvin. Shortly after the early practice started, Betzel, captain of the team of '17, a player of old repute appeared to don the red and white uniform. Butenhoff, a Ripon college star, loomed up as our big hope in the center position. In Foster Claflin, a graduate of Mondovi High, was soon to be found a persistent player. Stanley Bergman of the River Falls High soon attained a berth on the squad.
At the close of the preliminary season, the squad was composed of the following men: Captain Carolan, Bytenhoff, Betzel, Fields, Claflin, Hyatt. Melvin, Bergman, and Luther.
With the old men as a nucleus and prospective new material, the outlook was altogether toward a successful season. The work-out at the first whistle took the old familiar course of short passing, pivoting and catching the ball.
River Falls lost her first game, which was played with La Crosse, but from this time on she made good. All her games were hard fought ones, and those she lost were all lost by a one or two point level by her opponent. By far the best games of the season were those played against Eau Claire on our own floor, and against Stout, also on our floor. These two games were characteristic of real basketball. Good floor and team work, speed, clean playing, good defensive and offensive on both sides, and accurate shooting when opportunity presented itself. We will have to wait some time before we see two such remarkable exhibitions of basketball again. That is the kind of basketball River Falls advocates—win or lose.
Eight men were awarded the official "R" and sweater. Captain "Jimmy' Carolan, 3 yr.; Betzel, 3 yr.; Melvin. 2 yr.: Captain-elect Claflin, I yr.; Butenhoff. I yr.; Field. I yr.; Hyatt, I yr.; and Bergman. 1 yr. Carolan and Betzel have played their three years, hence they have played their last games on the old Red and White.
Coach Eggebrecht has worked hard and long in putting out this year's team; too much cannot be said of his untiring efforts to put out a team characteristic of River Falls Normal School.

Page ijiPersonnel of Basketball Team.
MARVIN CAROLAN, Captain
Cardan's three years' experience on the Red and White basketball squad, one of them on the State Championship team, was an important factor in the success of the year’s squad. With "Jimmy" at forward, the ball was sure to go through the ring. Starring in the Minnesota University game, "Doubre" won much fame. He well deserves the title of captain, for in him we found a leader in basketball circles. We often wondered at the ease with which he guided the ball through the air and into the basket. Captain Carolan has played his last game on the Red and White team.
FOSTER CLAFLIN, Captain-Elect
Claflin's presence on this year’s squad was regarded as an important factor. At running guard "Claf” never allowed the ball to slip by him. As an all-around guard he probably was the best River Falls ever produced. Regardless of the severe handicap under which he struggled, owing to an injury, he never failed to put anything but his best into the game. It never failed to thrill us when "Claf" rushed down the floor to receive the ball under the basket, and seldom did he fail in tipping the ball in. We are more than glad to know that Foster may be back next year as captain to pilot the 1923 basketeers.
Donald’s ability to play basketball was proved by the way he held the guard position throughout the entire season. With him at that position, it was impossible for an opponent to score. For endurance and ability to rush the floor. Fields was unequaled. Much was expected of Fields, because he had already had one year's experience on the Red and White squad under Chandler's able coaching. With Fields at his old position, we predict success for next year’s team.
Butenhoff. with one year's experience on the Ripon College Champion-shiD team, certainly held his place as center in this vear's sauad. Very seldom did anyone outjump him at center. "Booty" could be relied upon to tip the ball to one of our own men. When we consider every thing that goes to make up a basketball player, we have to hand it to "Booty." His consistent and efficient floor work was a remarkable feature. In making retrospection of the season we cannot recall a single instance when some one "got the best" of him. It is doubtful to us whether he will return next year.
Betzel also was a great factor in determining the success of this year's team. With two years experience on former Red and White teams, one of these a championship team. "Butche's" return to the Falls was highly regarded by basketball fans. Although not eligible for the first two conference games, he has beyond question shown his worth in the other conference games. He had not plaved basketball for several years, but he soon worked himself back into shape, holding his own at the forward position.
Betzel. having played his full three years, will also be absent when next year's basketball men assemble.
Page 133ROY MELVIN
Melvin was a player who never laid down on the job. Although he had opportunity to play in only two conference games this year he made a very creditable showing. He was small and light, but was very fast and had a keen eye for the basket. It was not safe to let him have an opening at the basket. Roy went big in his last chance to play for the Falls, and we will always remember his last game for the old Red and White. Due to the completion of his course, he left us to go to the University the second semester.
"The Kid" came to us from Ellsworth last year. This has been his second year of basketball for the Red and White, and though he did not receive his "R" last year, he nevertheless showed good form. He made his letter this year, and we want to see him back here next year to make another one. We feel that with two years’ coaching under our able coach, Hyatt can upset the dope next year. He has sufficient speed, is very shifty on his feet, and has an excellent eye for the basket.
Luther did not make his letter this year, but this does not make us underestimate him. He makes a good man at center, was an exceptionally good shot, and more than came up to our expectations. Luther has a physique which takes him a long ways. His endurance and pluck are two of his strong points.
We are counting on you, Earl, to put things across next year.
"Bergy" comes to us from the local high school, where he has had competent training on the basketball floor. This combined with his one year s coaching under Eggebrecht should make him a valuable asset to next year s line-up. His ability to play basketball was recognized by the members of the first team. "Bergy" was somewhat handicapped because of his size but he had lots of speed and pep to make up for what he lacked in weight. We feel confident that when next year’s men have assembled, "Bergy" will be included in the first team line-up.
THE SECOND TEAM
A good second team is one of the most essential factors in the turning out of a first team. Should no material for a second team be available, any athletic sport would be seriously handicapped.
It is on the second team that one finds men of unusual public spirit and men who will always do their bit. There is little if any glory in it for them, yet they enjoy the game and willingly take the knocks from the first team in order to help develop a winning team.
River Falls has always appreciated' the work of the second line teams and this makes the task of the second tearns a pleasant one.
The second team men in basketball were Egger, Raab, Cole, Miles, Weber, Hoffman and Clanton. They have been faithful advocates of the first team and they certainly deserve mention for their loyal efforts.
Page 133COACH CHANDLER
We all know about Coach Chandler’s ability to turn out winning basketball teams, but we had no conception of his ability as a baseball man.
There is no question that "Bill" turned out the best baseball team that has ever been turned out in the history of our school. Coach had an eye for picking his men, and when he placed a man on the mound, that was his place. If he chose a player to fill the shortstop position, we felt assured that man was best fitted for the place. Chandler had the confidence of all his men, a thing which is absolutely essential to success. Due to his visual powers he could see every error made, and knew how to correct the error. Perhaps his success in turning out such a strong team is due to a great extent to the fact that he knew how to play the game himself. During the summer he played a great many games himself, and it was a pleasure merely to watch him.
He was a strong hitter, a fast runner between bases, and tactful in stealing bases. When on the defense it was remarkable how his eye seemed to follow every move of his opponent. The men on the offense were never able to put anything across on him. Baseball fans, those who have seen real games, admit that "Bill" knew how to use his head
"Bill" Chandler n t ie ga" ®-
Chandler left us for Ames. Iowa, last fall, where he has made good as head coach in basketball there. To say we miss him is putting it mildly.

The I 921 Baseball Season.
The 1921 baseball season proved to be the most successful in our school's history. At the opening call for men. Coach Chandler found the camp well entrenched with veteran material. With the return of the entire team of the 1920 season. Coach Bill proceeded to round into form a winning team.
In Rice and Carolan he was sure of pitching ability of big form, while Luther had hopes of nursing a long lost whip into come-back form. Carlson was back with a scooping mit on the receiving end. The infield of the previous year was back intact with Ole on the initial sack, Melvin holding down the keystone in old form. Captain Johnson plugging short in flashy style, and Davis stationed in his old position on the hot comer. In the outer garden were posted Fahland of old renown, one of the alternating pitchers, and the find of the camp with the reporting of Gurnoe.
The opening shot came April 16 when the Luther Phalen invaded the home lot and took a decisive 10-0 drubbing. The one-sided score rendered the game void of characterizing thrills. The team took their southern training trip on April 18 by journeying to Winona. The purpose of the trip was to do battle with St. Mary's highly reputed nine and so they did. With Rice and Carolan doctoring lame wings, Luther attempted what was considered the impossible by going onto the mound. Jimmie applied the whitewash in a 6-0 manner allowing only five scattered hits. On April 21 the wreckers met their first and only defeat of the season which was administered by Hamline. A 5-0 dose tasted bad for Luther who breezed through the game in major league form. The game throughout was a battle royal between Smith and Luther as opposing moundsmen. Fortune smiled on the spitball artist that day, so he and his mates, though outhit almost two to one, emerged the victors. A return game with Luther Phalen resulted in an 11-3 win for the locals. Carolan and Rice pitched. Carlson swung the wicked club which featured the local attack. In a return game with Hamline on the latter's field, the Falls got the desired revenge by romping away with a 10-1 win. Luther held the St. Paul team well in hand while Captain Bill and his mates scooped up numerous difficult chances. On May 26 the team invaded the Northland to meet St. John's team at College-ville. The trip, which was a hundred and twenty-five mile'drive, was one not inducive to good playing when the team arrived. The effects of the long drive were clearly evidenced by the loose baseball exhibited by the Red and White. Luther who again was assigned to the mound had very little to show the Saints. Coupled with some good base-stealing and bits of timely hitting, the team squeezed through with a 5 to 4 victory. On June 2 the team played and won its final game from Macalester College over on Shaw field in St. Paul. The locals took an early lead when in the first inning they scored twice. The "Macs scored also in the initial frame but were never in the lead. From the first inning, the game ran in 2 to I style until in the seventh when the locals crossed twice more. With a three-run lead the Chandler tribe were so confident that in the ninth inning the "Macs" forced an extra inning game by tying the score. The Falls won in the tenth inning on three successive singles. Fahland's one hand grab of a fly in the tenth pulled the game out of the fire as two Macmen were in the path when the ball was hit. There is little doubt, but what the team of 1921 was one of the best balanced teams in college circles. as can be seen by the record it made. It had six pitchers and two catchers, backed by a good fielding and hitting aggregation. The members of last year's team that will be back this year are Carlson. Davis and Fahland. With these veterans back to form, the nucleus for the 1922 team, a winning season is expected.

High School Basketball Tournament.
The District High School Basketball Tournament was held at the Normal School here March 15, 16, 17. The winner of the tournament to represent the district at the State Tournament March 22, 23, 24.
The teams in this district to contend for places were River Falls, New Richmond, Elmwood, Prescott, Cumberland, Clayton, St. Croix Falls and Ellsworth.
The tournament opened with an exhibition of real basketball. New Richmond winning by a decisive score over Elmwood, and River Falls had little trouble in eliminating Prescott. Cumberland defeated Clayton the same day in a very close and fast game, while St. Croix Falls crowded out Ellsworth in another close but slow game. The second day Clayton beat Ellsworth, Elmwood and Prescott, New Richmond defeated St. Croix Falls and River Falls nosed out Cumberland in what proved to be the best game of the tournament. On the last day Elmwood and St. Croix Falls respectively eliminated Clayton and Cumberland. The semi-finals were played between Elmwood and St. Croix Falls, wherein Elmwood won out I 3 to 11. New Richmond and River Falls entered for the finals. The result being a decided victory for New Richmond in defeating River Falls 27 10.
New Richmond was easily the best team of the tournament. The defense was very strong, while on the offense their team work was characteristic in efficiency in handling the ball, passing it back and forth with quickness and precision.
Williams at forward played a most excellent game throughout the tournament. while McDermott as center outplayed his man at every point of the game. At the guard position, Hawkins is a hard player to beat. He guarded his man closely and did not permit his opponent to get clear for a shot.
River Falls took second place in the tournament, and made a creditable showing in all her games. Their defense was perhaps the strongest of any team, while they were very accurate in their shooting, except for their hard luck in the finals. Gibson at guard played a stellar game, showing wonderful ability at interception and getting the ball off the bounding board.
Driscoll at forward perhaps made more long shots than any other player in the tournament. He is very consistent in making long shots count.
The teams to represent the Normal districts at the State Tournament are:
River Falls—New Richmond.
Superior—Superior Central High.
Eau Claire—Eau Claire.
Whitewater—U. High of Madison.
Oshkosh—Fond du Lac.
In this state tournament Fond du Lac took the state, while New Richmond took second place, and if it had not been for New Richmond's hard luck in drawing, there is little doubt but that she would have taken first place, instead of coining second by losing out by a score of 21-19.

One of the largest societies in the school is the Agrifallian Society.
The purpose of the society is to promote an interest in Agriculture, and to discuss new problems of experimentation and research in the field of agricultural science. An effort is made to have every man take an active part in the meetings.
Meetings are held every other week, and interesting programs are rendered by members of the society. On many occasions outside speakers and educational films are obtained by the society. The programs deal, not only with the practical side of agriculture, but also with social activities which will relieve the monotony of farm life.
In all school activities the society takes a leading part. Some of its members are on football and basketball squads or on the debating team. The Agrifallian Society also holds the cup which was presented to the winning society in the extemporaneous speaking contest.
Every fall the society holds a poultry and grain show, in which the farmers and townspeople of the surrounding communities compete for prizes. Last fall between three and four hundred birds were entered. A large exhibit of grains, considering the year, was shown. The expense of the show is borne entirely by the society.
Another feature is the Annual Stock Show which is held in the spring. This show was started nine years ago and the number and quality of the animals shown compare with the best county fairs. Last spring two hundred sixty-five head of pure-bred cattle were on exhibition.
The big thing for the students is the Agricultural Field Day on which students give marketing demonstrations on poultry, dairy products, potatoes, and with this, educational exhibits, teaching important farm facts. Stock fitting and judging demonstrations fit the men who take part in this work to handle and meet conditions in their teaching and community work.

The Aurelia, a thriving literary organization of girls, is a society for promoting an appreciation of the best in literature. Entertaining, as well as instructive, programs are put on at the semi-monthly meetings.
One of the most successful social functions of the year was the joint Lincolnian-Aurelia dance.
The society is grateful to Miss Schlosser for her help and inspiration in making this one of the live societies of the school.

The Ukelele Club was organized in the fall of 1921 by a group of girls who desired to develop a greater musical interest in the school. A number of very interesting programs were rendered by the members of the club and were greatly enjoyed.
It is hoped that with the return of several of its members as a nucleus next fall, the club will have a prosperous year and become an established organization in the River Falls Normal School.

Among the most loyal supporters of all school activities are to be found the G. O. P. girls. As the name, Girls on Promotion, signifies, the purpose of the organization is to foster the school spirit and to back all other worthy school enterprises. With its membership of sixty girls the G. O. P. always stands ready to promote and aid athletics, whether it be by making posters to advertise the games or by attending the games and rooting for the River Falls team.

In this, the seventh year of our Camera Club, we have become one of the most useful and interesting organizations in this normal school. It is useful in that it furnishes many pictures for the Meletean, and it teaches us how to correctly operate a camera, develop films, print pictures, and make enlarge-ments for ourselves, and enables us to help others in the same processes.
Because the study of photography as an art is considered more important now than ever before, one of our aims is that members master the technique of photography in order to make the development of the study possible. Under the guidance of Mr. Jacobson's wealth of experience and enthusiastic interest, has grown a purpose, to produce our best with our camera.
Our Monday night meetings are enlivened by a spirit of co-operation and enjoyment in the other person's accomplishments.

The Civic Club is an open forum for the discussion of present day problems vital to society. It was organized in the spring of 1921. Even though a new society without the reputation of some of the older ones, it is. nevertheless. a very worthwhile organization. The Club has at least one social function for each semester. The first semester’s affair was a jolly one.
The meetings are held every two weeks on Tuesday at seven o'clock in the Society Room. The Civic Club is fortunate in having for its advisor. W. B. Davison.

The Normal Catholic Association is one of the most enterprising religious societies in the school. It serves a three-fold purpose by developing its members spiritually, mentally and socially. The whole-hearted support given it by the students insures its success and shows that it is serving a real need.
Officers for the first semester were elected last spring, thus eliminating any chance for delay by organization in the fall.
Regular meetings are held every Thursday. They are always well attended. Literary and musical numbers are usually given.
Father Dicoph has favored us with the use of the. church hall, as well as interesting talks. The second Sunday of each month is Communion Sunday for the organization.
The "Christian Mothers" have entertained and always are a helping factor to the Society. Social functions take their place in line with the many other fundamentals of a successful organization.

Although the Y. M. C. A. has not been very conspicuously thrust into the limelight of our school, it has accomplished some good things with the help of Mr. Jacobson, as advisor, and the state student secretary. Mr. Sawers. Mr. Jacobson is always ready to forward any good movement suggested. Mr. Sawers has, during the past year, given much valuable assistance in arranging drives and programs. ...
Each year the organization succeeds in bringing to the school s platform
one or more excellent speakers, among whom have been J. Stitt Wilson. Dr. Winfield Scott Hall and Dr. Long-brake.
At some convenient time during the winter months the society swings a rousing stag party. When the spirit of spring and summer creeps into young hearts, a joint picnic with the Y. W. C. A. is given.
The regular meetings carry a devotional attitude and are held weekly on Thursday evenings.
Each spring in June the “Y endeavors to send as many as possible of its members to the Geneva Conference. These men profit by the trip, and bring back new ideas and fresh
stimulus for the local group.

This school year found the Y. W. C. A. prepared to help promote the welfare of the girls in our school.
During the first few weeks of school an active membership campaign was carried on. The results of a campaign for the Near East Relief amounted to fifty dollars. We also help support a missionary in Tokio.
The "Kid Party" was one of the prominent social events of the year.
The following delegates were sent to he Annual Lake Geneva Conference: Elizabeth Adams. Mildred Anderson and Cloteal Gibson. Through
them the organization has been greatly benefited.

The optimist sees the doughnut and the pessi-mist sees the hole. You are an optimist, if. when you find a hair in the soup, you say, "Well, it isn’t everyday I can have hair in soup: perhaps it is a good omen." Again, so many people are distressed about their own forbidding visages. Console yourselves, for you can always find a more forbidding one. if you will only look around. Be an optimist, if only for your uife’s sake. If the bread is doughy, forget your feelings and talk to yourself thus. "Well, doughy bread is nice for a change, anyway.”
It seems that 1 am encouraging insincerity. But goodness knows there is a great superfluity of it as it is. Wc need optimists these days, so my final injunction to you is. "See the doughnut."

OUTRAGE BY MEXICANS.
Girl Kidnapped by Bandits. Selma Shennun. a Minnesota girl, was going to visit a special friend on the Mexican border. Being very courageous, she journeyed alone the last ten miles on horseback. When within three miles of her desination. she was seized by bandits. A lone traveler coming alone at that time, heard her scream for help. He urged his horse- along, but at that moment the horse shied. He could not reach her in time. The bandits and the girl had disappeared so completely. as if the Mexkan sun had reduced them to a grease spot.

Civilization is turning backward in its flight. How things will eventually pan out. time only will tell. As for me I only hope I am at rest in the boneyard when the clash does come. At one time people had some regard for law, but the present I generation seems to have little or none. A Min- I reapolis matron claims that galoshes are a necessity. Any fool knows that necessity knows no ,| law. There are so many so-called "necessities" these days, that you see people are continually dis- | obeying the law. And they get away with it. too.

The present decade will go down in history as I one of the most economical in America's history.
I am sure future generations will agree with me.

The women j who saved these relics are indeed fortunate.
This decade is marked by the striking fact that

men and women wear their hair in the eame fashion, that is, bobbed. The women were forced to this extremity because their hair has been a veritable battleground for rots, puffs, snarls, pugs and nets in past years. The bobbed hair is a tangible evidence of their efforts to preserve the remnants of hair. It is timely to say here that stenographers are worth more today than they ever have been in the history of the world. Their sense of hearing has developed so keenly that the boss rarely has to repeat when he dictates. Scientists claim that the absence of rats over the ears is undoubtedly the reason. This is probably the reason why business has picked up so astonishingly of late years.
In winter, even in small towns, women may be seen wearing enormous fur pieces, three-fourths of which trails on a sled behind her.

Pagt mBOOST YOUR COLLEGE
A College is what it is made, nothing more. It can be a powerful, beneficial influence, or it can be a destructive influence. Faculty and students largely determine that. The only possible means through which our college will achieve its highest good is through the loyal, hearty support of those who help shape its destiny. Each one of us has some influence, small though it may be upon the significance of River Falls in the world.
If each one will earnestly strive to make the activities of his school increasingly successful the Normal School must grow steadily in its capacity to accomplish the purpose of an education. If each one will boost his college by diligently preparing his lessons and by coming to and remaining in class as |.l»rco»chC™dREA.hLic much awake as possible, the scholastic standing will Director undergo distinct changes for the better. It each stu-
Hoidoibonc University. dent will boost the athletic teams by giving all he
has either in the way of actual playing or in encouraging those who do play, and do the same boosting in every other college activity, River Falls will stand as a landmark to the successful training of the capacities of each student. If every student will be courteous and friendly to the students of his own college and those of other colleges, a far more loyal and happy spirit will prevail. The only road to a greater, more capable and influential River Falls is the road of uphill climbing, the steady and active boosting on the part of everyone taking a part in the school life.
Boost, and watch River Falls grow along these paths most desirable.
Yours for a greater and bigger River Falls State Normal School.
Carl Eggebrecht, 16.
GREETINGS FROM A FORMER STUDENT AND TEACHER To Meletean Editor:
Your kind letter asking me to drop a line as an alumnus of River Falls Normal came to my desk while I was on a trip to Chicago and Boston in the interest of the association.
I surely appreciate your letter and the breath of cordiality and well wishes it brought me from my old Alma Mater.
Having served in a dual capacity as both student and teacher, my affection for old River Falls is perhaps deeper than those who have not had this same opportunity.
We alumni, though miles may separate us, are yet vitally interested in the old school. We watch her successes, we cheer her victories, we rejoice in her growth and development—we mourn over her defeats and sorrow in her trials.
The added years bring new opportunities for service and larger responsibilities in the training of more skilled and competent teachers. I am sure we shall find River Falls ever maintaining her leadership in turning out well trained. loyal, self-sacrificing men and women, capable and eager to train and mould aright the lines of the future generations. This is the spirit of service —the spirit inbred into every loyal son and daughter of the old Red and White.
With all good wishes to you and my many friends.

TO THE 1922 MELETEAN STAFF
It always gives me a queer, rather lonesome feeling to be addressed as an alumnus, but 1 was glad to hear that the Meletean is well under way. 1 am more than anxious to see this year's book.
I wonder if this year's graduates realize how fortunate they are. It is a fine thing to be able to say that you are a River Falls State Normal School graduate. No matter where you go, someone seems to know what a real school is. 1 hope that each one of you who goes out this year, will be most successful and use to the greatest extent the many gifts which the Normal has given you.
There are so many greetings that I would like to send to the students, faculty and alumni that I can only wish them the best of good wishes. 1 know that so many alumni will be sending in greetings for publication that one from me will not be missed.
1 would gladly have sent a snapshot for use, but just to prove that I've been too much of a Westerner to have a good one taken. I'm enclosing one of two “old maid' school "inarms of Troy, all ready for a hike.

OH I YOU 1922 MELETEAN STAFF
Hello, everybody! That word illustrious got you too, didn't it? A canny bunch this Meletean Staff. Greetings to them and to all the friends still at the good, old school, as well as to those scattered far and wide who have spent all their “mad-money" for a 1922 Meletean. Laura E. Kellar, '21.
TO THE CLASS OF 1922
There is something quite indefinable about River Falls State Normal that always makes me glad that I am one of her graduates. 1 sincerely hope that each member of the class of '22 will continue to do the work he has begun. May each one realize the value of our Alma Mater and feel the keen interest in her that is so characteristic of River Falls alumni.
Helen Lampson, '20.
TO THE MELETEAN STAFF
It is with great anticipation that 1 await the publication of this Meletean by the Class of 1922. Through this medium, we shall be brought back into that realm in which was spent two of the most prosperous and enjoyable years of our school life.
1 express appreciation to the staff and class for this publication which marks the greatest accomplishment of your school career.
Accept my wishes for the best book of our school s history.

A SONNET TO NATURE
O, Nature dear, how wonderful art thou Who takes good care of everything that grows.
Who kens where every stream and brooklet flows And eyes the farmer who his way doth plow.
Who lists the merry songster on the bough.
Whilst all the flow'rs, and fruits, and trees do show The vigils that thou dost o'er them bestow To keep all foes abashed before them now.
Yet ever when I gaze into your world.
It brims me full of ecstasies untold.
The rose-buds, sweet, with petals still unfurl'd.
They are to me full worth their weight in gold.
And shylark's soar upward in pathways curl'd To all the world their merry lay unfold.
—Joyce Taylor.AT THE SETTING OF THE SUN
"It isn't so much what we do As what we leave undone.
That gives us the bit of a heartache At the setting of the sun.”
Moat of us are prone to take too much for granted where the actual doing of things is concerned. We decide that some future date will do just as well for the performance of certain seemingly unimportant tasks. As a matter of fact, people often have no intentions of carrying out this plan, and even purposely avoid thinking about it until it is too late. ‘Til live just as long if I do not do it,” is the excuse frequently given. Of course our lives will not necessarily be shortened physically because of neglected duties, but reaction is bound to assert itself in some way. This reaction is reflected in the character of the individual. Hence, we need to keep in mind that “reputation is what men and women say of us; character what God and the angels know of us.”
Because of this habit of postponing things or of half-doing them, we fail to enjoy the worth while things in life. We fail to make ourselves and otheis happier by neglecting to perform the needed service; consequently at the “setting of the sun” there is an ache in our hearts, which may account for our gloomy or unsatisfied state of mind.
The “setting of the sun” does not necessarily mean old age. In the life of the student it may be represented in the weekly tests, final examinations, or even in the daily recitation. Then it is that the truth of these immortal words comes home to many students, and they experience the bit of a heartache “with sincere resolutions to do” things in the future.
Dear fellow seniors, our sun has reached its setting only to rise again on a rosy horizon of new experiences. Let us strive to keep this horizon a rosy one as we stand on the brink of a new life, even though we know that the panorama of pictures, both bright and sad. which rise before our eyes, as we glance back on our school days, will be repeated in this new life.
Our work has been mingled with pleasure, a pleasure resulting from close contact with our teachers and fellow students. We cannot yet fully realize the decided role that our school has played in our lives. But it has stored our minds with such knowledge as will enable us to more “wisely improve the present, and to go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with manly hearts.
"To thine own self be true And it must follow u the night the day.
Thou const not then be false to any man."
Then and then only, will true happiness be ours, our hearts less heavy with the burden of aches at the final “setting of the sun.
Zelma Lomnes, 22.THE END
