Madison Whitewater Kau Claire Oshkosh Plattcville - Superior Stevens Point River Falls ------ Milwaukee Baraboo I.a Crosse Madison State Treasurer, MadisonTHE MELETEAN PRESIDENT J. H. AMESTHEMELETEAN [HE River Falls Normal School is one of the pioneer educational institutions in Wisconsin. Located in River Falls in 1875, the school has been an important factor in the educational development of Western Wisconsin. For many years, in its early history, the River Falls Normal School not only rendered an important service in the preparation of teachers for this section of the state, but supplied also general educational opportunities to the ambitious young men and women of Western Wisconsin. The purposes of the school in its early history are thus expressed by its president of that time, "The school offers professional, literary, and scientific advantages to teachers, and it affords facilities for all students who wish to improve themselves by reflection and study.” From the outset the school was marked by a spirit of enthusiasm and devotion to high professional ideals. Earnest and high-minded men and women impressed their characters on the institution to such a degree that their influence is felt down to the present time. A normal school is prc-cmincntlv a school for public service. More important than the excellence of academic instruction and the degree of professional skill attained, is the spirit with which its graduates go out into the field of service to which they arc dedicated. It is through the capacity of its graduates to perform a high type of service in the public schools of the state as teachers and as community workers, that the River Falls Normal School makes its contribution to the state. n a SIMULA. Pag« aThe Deans In spite of the fact that an increasing number of occupations is open to the young woman of to-day, a large number of capable young women continue to choose the profession of teaching. Without doubt, one of the reasons for this choice is that this profession offers many opportunities for service and for self-improvement. Young women realize that teaching is an occupation essential to the continuance of democratic ideals. They recognize the opportunity of service to the community, the state, and the nation through service to each individual who comes under their care. Young teachers also know that contact with childhood and adolescence brings them new interests, new problems, and a constant opportunity for growth. Teaching is not for those who are content with a meager preparation and no further study. The successful teacher is the one who does her work better and better ns time pusses, and who finds happiness in her ability to continue to learn IRMA IIATIIORN A. M. Columbia University and to grow. Hecausc of their high ideals and high professional standards, this institution is proud to send into the schools of Wisconsin its many young women graduates. II. K. HAYWARD A. B. University of Minnesota The office of Dean of Men was created in order to promote a closer relationship between the school administration and the men of the school. All matters pertaining to scholarship, social activities, and the living conditions of the men arc handled through this office. A check is made each six weeks on scholarship and those needing advice or assistance are called in for a discussion of their particular difficulties. The Dean of Women and the Dean of Men act jointly as advisors to the Student Social Committee which directs the expenditure of the student social fund. Rooming lists for men arc compiled by this office and matters concerning the relations between students and householders arc acted upon. The office is primarily designed to be one that will give the men of the school every assistance in insuring their welfare and comfort while in attendance at the River Falls Normal School.JAMES I. MALOTT A. M. University of Missouri Principal. Rural Department Department of Education ALFRED H, WEBSTER A. M. University of CIuchko WALTER II. HUNT Pit. M. Valparaiso University Principal. Principals Department The primary purpose of the normal school is to serve the state in training teachers for its common schools. In rendering this service it should pay special attention to tlic educational movements that arc continually presenting themselves for consideration. This service to the school is rendered through the Department of Education. It is the function of the Department of Education to aid in the organisation of the various courses of study offered by the school, to study the different educational ideas as they arc advanced, and to try these out, evaluate them, and pass them on to the school. The Department of Education formulates the body of educational theory for the school and furnishes the educational principles upon which the work in theory and practice is to be based. It renders to the school a service in educational theory similar to that rendered in practice hv the practice teaching in the Training Department.Department of Agriculture JOHN M. MAY B. S. A. Kansas Agricultural College Agriculture needs trained men more today than ever before in its history. The war has produced many changes in farming. It apparently stopped a comparatively long period of farm prosperity. For the past three years, agriculture has been going through a severe period of depression. New problems have appeared. the most important of which are distribution, adjustment of production to demand, credit and better marketing methods. There is an urgent need for men trained to cope with these problems and who can stimulate an interest in agriculture. The most effective and far-reaching work is with the boys and girls who will be our farmers in the next generation. The agricultural course at River Falls Is organized to train men for this type of work. The department for training of agricultural teachers was organized in 1912. The first graduating class had three members. Since that time 275 have completed the course, most of whom have become teachers of agriculture and science in Wisconsin. Forty per cent of the special teachers of agriculture in Wisconsin this year are graduates of this department. The work of a teacher of agriculture is varied. He must have a thorough understanding of the practical and technical phases of agriculture. He must have sufficient professional training to enable him to teach successfully. He must also . ROY K.

The aim of the department is to provide opportunities for training in these different phases of his work. For this purpose a farm of 110 acres is managed by tbc department which is used for agricultural experimentation and demonstration. A large herd of pure-bred cattle furnishes opportunities for judging, testing and feeding practice. A large shop building furnishes excellent facilities for mechanical training. Well equipped laboratory rooms are available for more technical instruction. Special facilities are provided for teaching experience. The River Falls High School conducts an organized course in agriculture, the teaching of which is done by senior students under careful supervision. The department has a program of outside activities including a Poultry and Grain Show, Live Stock Show and Field Day where opportunity is afforded in training for boys’ and girls’ club work ond community service. The agricultural department was the first organised department in the state to permanently adopt a three year course. With the prospects of the Normal Schools being granted the power to grant degrees, it is expected that the Board of Regents will award the department this privilege. A four year course with a degree would open an unlimited field for our graduates in this and other states, since many states now require a degree for high school teaching.RKXFOKD S. MITCH (.1,1, A.

University of Cliicnn History Department of History and Social Science The Department of History ami Social Science is concerned with the organization and administration of nearly all of the available courses in History and the Social Studies. During the year sixteen distinct courses an offered. The aim of the teaching staff is to organise all of the courses around social objectives, and in both organisation and instruction to proceed from a scientific point of view. In history this means to give the student a realising sense of the past and a sound basis for understanding contemporary life. In Civics, Economies, and Sociology it means to give an intelligent conception of society—its origin, development, forms, functions, requirements, and weaknesses, and to help the student to a rational understanding of himself and his social membership. » Page J6Department of English I.LOVH CORI.F. A. M. University • .f (Mr Students may well hope for generous service to he rendered them in two very important ways. First, they should eagerly crave help in the development of the power to think directly and logically and the ability to express their thoughts not merely with clearness and force, hut with simplicity and grace. Second, they should find proffered them all the means possible to secure as their rightful heritage the treasures that scientists, artists, and poets have in past ages contributed for the happiness of mankind. It should hr theirs to know the truth that makes us free, to he stirred by those passions that lead to noble action. The Department of English seeks to render its share of that service. It tries to help men and women speak in fitting phrase the best that for the weal of others their minds and hearts can conceive and to bring to their own enjoyment the most exquisite intellectual luxuries the world has ever enjoyed.GLEN I . JUNKMAN I'll. II. University of Wisconsin KMMA J. OI.SON A. M. University of Chicago MARY B. McMILl.AN A. M. University of Wisconsin ROLAND VERRKTTE l'li. II. Ripon College Department of Mathematics Mathematics, as one of the exact sciences, develops power of concentration, systematic habits of study, and mental self reliance. Its demand for independent thinking, its unchanging, universally used laws, afford the satifaction of exact results whose truth can be checked. Its practical nature appeals to everyone, while its theoretical aspects attract those who gain mental pleasure in pure reasoning. Unlike many subjects, mathematics has a logical sequence that necessitates mastery of fundamental laws and principles before progress can be made. The mastery of its higher phases requires constant review and use of these fundamentals. So one’s progress in this field of endeavor can be definitely marked by increased power and skill. Mastery of mathematics by a few is responsible in no small measure for our technical and scientific progress. Our future development in all fields of human endeavor depends upon the continued mastery of mathematics by at least a few. The persons well trained in this field will be able to contribute no small amount to the progress of the race. Mathematics is, therefore, a subject of vital importance in our modern life, and it challenges and attracts all that is best in a student. This department offers courses for teachers of the elementary and secondary schools, and a completion of the academic work satisfies the requirements for many of the “Bachelor’s Degree” courses in the University. Almost every student who enrolls, comes in direct contact with the courses offered by this department, and some of the best paid teaching positions are offered to those who take their major work in mathematics. IAMKS I . JACOBSON . M. S. University of Wisconsin Physics RUDOLPH A. KARGES l h. M. University- of Wisconsin Chemistry II. E. HAYWARD A. B. University of Minnesota Biology Department of Science In the reading of ordinarily intelligent people nothing is more common than statements describing our time ns nil Age of Science. Certainly most of our ma-torinl prosperity and advancement is due to applications of Physical Sciences. At the same time it seems doubtful that intelligent thinking on scientific matters is common even among educated people. Possibly this is due to the fact that modern technology docs its work so completely that no mental effort is necessary to use its results. It takes little intellectual effort to turn a switch for the electric current or even to turn the vernier across the radio dial. The question might be raised as to whether we need any real knowledge of science so long as tile engineer serves us so fully. Hut when we see legislatures passing on the truth of organic evolution and when we sec every kind of fakir and pseudo-scientist prospering from the ignorance of our people, something may still be said for scientific education. In the Science Courses of this school, the main purpose is to train students to some degree of independent observation and scientific judgment. In all courses the emphasis is put upon the application of principles to ordinary human environment. Whether school training has had anything to do with it or not, the writer of this sketch takes this opportunity to bear testimony to the fine moral and intellectual qualities of the students majoring in scientific work.Department of Geography The Department of Geography seeks no justification for its existence beyond the fact that geography is a subject commonly taught in the grades and occasionally offered in high school. As long as this remains true, it is tile function of this department to train for the teaching of geography in the public schools. A properly trained teacher of geography has a keen appreciation of the commercial interdependence of mankind and the physical conditions which encourage or limit any of the vital industries. She realizes the practical importance of place geography as a preparation for intelligent work with atlases and reference books. She has some knowledge of the climatic regions of the world and the possibilities and limitations of each as the home of man. Above all, she has a sympathetic and unprej- STRATTON udiccd attitude toward the people of other lands than A. If. Michigan Normal College ||ef ©wn In addition to developing these mental attitudes, it is the aim of this department to give training that will enable the teacher to choose materials and to use methods that will make her work interesting and effective in the grade to which she is assigned. Department of Foreign Languages KRASMUS A. WHITENACK A. B. Rutgm College Three year courses in French and German are offered at River Falls. A person who has completed such a course is able to go out as a teacher of the language studied. This means a sufficient knowledge of grammar and ability to read fluently the ordinary French or German books used in high schools. It also means a fairly good command of the spoken language. There never was a time more promising for foreign language study. The nations arc drawing closer together. The radio will soon bring Paris and Berlin to our homes. In fact, right now, under favorable conditions, we are hearing concerts and lectures broadcasted from France and Germany.Department of Physical Education OTTO EGGEBRECHT A. IS. University of Wisconsin CATHERINE A. ROIIKRTY Slnic Normal School IjiCwf. Wia. Thu purpose of physical training is to cultivate qualities which will develop strength, skill, speed and mental concentration. The rapid response of the muscle to the will power, the ability to learn complicated coordinations, and the knowledge of the easiest and most economic way of performing difficult movements are some of the results obtained from physical training. During the last few years physical education has emphasi .ed corrective gymnastics. In the treatment by exercise, expansion of lungs by deep breathing has done much good to round out flattened chests: By adequate treatment exercises for flat feet, round backs, stoop and uneven shoulders are capable of improvement, and almost all, except the most resistant, are capable of complete cure. School hoards are appealing for medical inspection of the children to discover correctable defects and to prevent the spread of diseases. For this reason mensurcs are now taken to remedy them by exercise and play. 6 General bodily exercise and play is essential to growth ind health, and for fitting the student for his school work, and for his work and enjoyment in life after school. At the same time that education opens up the world and its activities to the mind, it should develop and strengthen physical vigor and endurance. Therefore we assert that physical education is an all-csscntial part of a rational education. S Ui p t pThe Department of Music It ih the aim, with the co-operation of the students, to make the Music Department of the Normal a "Service Station” for the musical life of the adjoining communities ns well as to serve the Normal proper. Many improvements have been made and the outlook is favorable for new equipment within the coming year. Several fine musical organizations arc sponsored by the Department of Music. Among these arc the Men’s MARVIN n. GliliRH Glee Club, Girls’ Glee Club, Orchestra, Band, and both Warren Conservatory of Muse Men’s and Girls’ Quartets. A Choral Union and Music Club are the latest additions to the musical organizations of the Normal. Arrangements have been completed whereby any one attending the Normal may take up private work in Voice, Violin, and Piano, and at the same time be assured that he is having the best in these different lines of musical study. Any student attending the Normal is eligible to membership in any one or more of the different musical organizations, providing of course he can satisfy the director in charge that his ability entitles him to membership. It is planned to broaden the scope of the music department as rapidly as conditions will permit, so that at no far distant date the Normal may be able to announce a Conservatory of Music, that will stand on a par with its other efficient departments. DOROTHY HATCH School of Unite University of MinnesotaThe Department of Art aims to present courses of the greatest possible value to students in the Elementary and High School Divisions in meeting the problem of teaching art in the public schools and giving each student in a usable form the knowledge that is essential in personal problems. The industrial world is demanding a more practical education in Art from our public school systems, and to meet this demand the ability to draw and design is more and more required of every teacher. The courses of the department arc constructed to meet this need, including instruction in perspective, illustration, principles of design and composition, lettering, applied design, color theory, primary handwork, methods and practice teaching. Appreciation of beauty as a cultural subject is especially stressed in a class in Art Appreciation. It is not enough for one to know of great pictures, pieces of sculpture or architecture, but personal taste should be developed so that all may enjoy the beautiful. Department of Home Economics The function of Home Economics is primarily to teach girls to cook and to sew. A better name for this work and one coming into very general use is Home Making, for its real aim is to prepare the girls for tlieir most important life work—the business of keeping house successfully—and to bring to them the recognition of the dignity of house work. This important work should begin early in a girl’s life, preferably in the fifth or sixth grade because at this time girls keenly enjoy every phase of home making and learn very easily to work with their hands. It is very important that the homemaker should know food values, foods suitable for children as well as methods of preparing them. These arc some of the things workers in Home Economics hope to bring to every fedicoL s. uj EDITH WEBERG State Normal School Stevens Point. Wisconsin I’ogt 33The Training School Department HENRY A.

Parker Junior High School The Alice Schultes Elementary School First, this department consists of about two hundred children. Second, it is organized as two separate units—the Alice Shultes Elementary School and the W. D. Parker Junior High School. The former is housed on two floors in North Hall. It has a critic for each grade and is under the immediate direction of the Elementary Grade Supervisor. The latter occupies the entire upper floor in South Hall. It has good laboratory and library facilities and is in charge of the Principal and three departmental assistants. The Training School is maintained for three main purposes: (1) To demonstrate, in actual classroom instruction, tile principles taught in the methods classes: (2) To provide observation facilities for practice teachers and others; (3) To provide actual practice in teaching under conditions approximating those existing in the average public school. The practice teaching is all done by seniors. The student spends his entire time in the Training School for one term. Here he is encouraged to form correct teaching habits and to develop sound professional ideals. His work consists of teaching, observing, making lesson plans, attending conferences, keeping records, and assisting in various ways. KUSSKLI. JOHNSTON A. B.

Wisconsin The Library The purpo.se of the library is threefold: to provide material for study, for recreation, and for inspiration. The collection contains hooks to satisfy the wants and needs of all tastes. One may soar to the heavens with Pegasus or explore the blue with the Knights of the Air, indulge in a dish of gossip with Chanticleer or in the meticulous descriptions of other Minorcas in the Standard of Perfection, sail the Seven Seas with Kipling or race the Mississippi with Mark Twain. There is a possibility to learn how to be a student while studying how to teach one, to inform oneself how to write a play and then how to see it. The resources are too numerous to mention and life is too short to exhaust the pleasures and profit of reading. ulj S.

With June, 1924, came the fiftieth anniversary of the River Falls State Normal School, founded, in 1874. For several years plans had been cherished for a suitable recognition of this occasion. Definite action was taken by the members of the faculty in the spring of 1923. An executive committee was appointed from faculty and townspeople: J. M. May, H. E. Hayward, W. B. Davison, Elmer Benson, J. II. Grimm, Mary B. McMillan, and I.ucilc Haddow. An historical pageant was decided upon as a most appropriate observance of the growth of the school and community. A production committee was selected from the executive committee and faculty members. The customary commencement events were to take place as usual, only on a larger scale. Officers of alumni dosses were notified and definite, organised efforts were made to bring back not only ns many alumni as possible, but former presidents and faculty members as well. There was n very gratifying response. Of the seven presidents this school has known, two found it possible to return for the reunion—President Emery, 1889-1893, and President Crabtree. 1911-1917—making with President Ames three presidents at the school for the occasion. The largest audience ever attending a River Falls commencement program honored the Commencement of 1924. The speakers and their messages were in keeping with the semi-centennial spirit: The Baccalaureate address was delivered by President John F. Sims, of Stevens Point, a former member of the River Falls faculty; the Commencement speaker was Judge Frank M. Nye of Minneapolis, a distinguished son of this community. The usual alumni banquet was made a community banquet and was attended by over five hundred. Forty-one of the forty-six classes, which have graduated from the school, were represented. One of the graduates of the first class, ’79, was present—Mrs. Hattie Powell Ensign. Others who were in the school at that time were here, among them Mrs. Anna Whelan of Mondovi, and Mrs. Mary Brown Sutherland of Eau Claire, who attended the school on the day of its opening fifty years before. Ray Erlandson, ’14, acted as toastmaster. Responses were given by Mrs. Ensign, '79, State Superintendent John Callahan, and Professor C. J. Brewer. Addresses were made by former presidents, J. Q. Emery and J. W. Crabtree. Page 104The Pageant Expectancy and suspense lingered in the audience of five thousand people, seated in the amphitheatre erected for the occasion on the southwest campus. Others poured in to be admitted. Alumni, friends, parents, neighbors—all came to honor the historical pageant which marked the zenith of the fiftieth anniversary celebration of June, 1924. In a few short hours the history of our Normal was to tome before the eyes and minds of all. The vibrant words of the Herald earried the big audience from the spell of that early June night to the days of long ago when River Falls was but the dwelling place of natural beauty untouched by human inhabitants. The Children of the Night danced before them. This very scene was then peopled with Red Men, who left untouched the beauty of nature surrounding them. To this group the French traders and the Jesuit missionaries came. The gifts Mother Nature lavished upon them were made visible in the Dance of the Seasons. The fall of 1848 arrived. Mr. Foster, our first pioneer, resisted the call of gold and California and utilized the blessings of Wisconsin. With the coming of his family River Falls’ first home began. Other pioneers arrived until a need was felt for shops, places of business, a church, and a schoolhouse. There was humor in the presentation of the Old I.og School, the schoolmaster, and the antics of the children; throughout it all, however, a hymn of thankfulness was raised front the hearts of the spectators for tile school that exists today. Soon, far too soon, the homely progress was interrupted by the appearance of Mars, the Spirit of War, who, with his attendants. Death, Famine, and Misery, charged rudely past the home where even then a marriage ceremony and celebration was taking place. The curtain was drawn upon the suffering of that little gathering. When Columbia enme to plead with the Spirit of River Falls, she responded with her best; the men of River Falls left to fight in the Union’s cause. Even from the disasters of war the Spirit of Education emerged triumphant. Though discouraged and blocked by the opposition of the hideous spirits. Ignorance. Superstition, Indifference, and Fear, Alina Mater, aided by the State and River Falls, was successful in her progress toward better things. A finer and larger school was erected in the “Old Academy,” and finally in 1874 there was founded the River Falls State Normal School. The first class to graduate from the newly established school underwent the dreaded regents’ examination, received their diplomas, and seriously accepted instructions from the schools first president. Mr. W. D. Parker. In 1897 with the burning of the Normal School building the first great sorrow descended upon the school. This period of our history was depicted by the Dance of the Flames. When the God of Fire and the Flames had disappeared and the last silvery wreath of smoke had vanished in this beautiful interpretation, times indeed were black. River Falls, however, rushed to the aid of Alma Mater, and they together determined not to “be defeated by the ruin of material structures. A larger and better building was erected in the present South Hall. The school journeyed on in its search for greater things. During this period of growth and activity a new building was added; North Hall was completed in 1914. Pact 105Again the call of Columbia, in challenge to the raucous note of war, brought forth a sacrifice from the River Falls Normal for the World War. Columbia came to place upon the Normal's Service Flag nine golden stars. The din of that war was horrible! At last came victory and peace, whose coming was celebrated by the Dance of Victory. The last episode of the pageant was beautifully symbolic of the further expansion of the Normal. Before the characters Alma Mater, Education, River Falls, the State, and their attendants—Knowledge, Truth, Romance, Courage, and Inspiration—passed a processional of Science, Geography, Agriculture, Mechanics, Music, Dramatics, Athletics, Literature, History, and Teacher of Teachers. Graduating students followed, to whom Alma Mater presented her attendants, Knowledge, Truth, Romance, Courage, and Inspiration. The pageant awakened within us a new appreciation of the progress made in these past fifty years in the school and the community; a progress not to be shared alone by the River Falls school and community, but typical of the whole West. Evidences of a successful institution were manifest in the authorship, the orchestration, the staging, and management of the pageant; in the director, the costumers, and the cast. River Falls can well be proud of her achievement, for without doubt the pageant was one of the finest and most successful ever staged. Not one minute’s delay marred the clock-work precision of the presentation. The pageant was written and staged with as its sole aim a presentation of historical fact as it appeared in the development of our locality. Its dramatic effect lay solely in this connection with actualities. Throughout it all we lived past history through vivid portrayals. PRODUCTION STAFF J. M. May -W. B. Davison H. E. Hayward M. D.

Things began to happen as soon os classes started at eight o’clock. Due to the far-sightedness of President Ames and his helpers, committees had been appointed to take charge of the day’s events, so ot a special assembly at 10:30 their plans for a real celebration were announced: mass meeting, parade, victory bonfires, stunts, and a big informal victory dance. At two o’clock the whole school gathered in the assembly room to have a little organized display of emotion. It was a very good mass meeting, featuring Mr. Hunt’s snappy pep-talk. Professor Hayward’s cheer-leading ability, Captain-Elect Matt’s little tribute to Captain Mike, and Coach Eggebrccht’s explanation of how it happened. The parade formed immediately after the mass meeting, with a hay rack full of River Falls State Champs at the head, followed by a second rack full of loyal River Falls faculty members. All students marched behind. The first stop was at the hospital, where we tried to show Pat and Mike through the window how we felt about it all. After the parade an exhibition game between River Falls High School and the All-Americans finished up the afternoon. A big victory bonfire at 7:30 on the west campus was the occasion for more celebration. Then everyone went to the gym where every organization presented a stunt. There weren’t any judges, so we don't know whose was the best, but some of them were clever. The dance came next—strictly informal and exceedingly enjoyable. But, in the midst of it, the most dramatic incident of the day occurred. A gang of fellows burst through the doors, carrying Pat and Mike on stretchers. Everyone howled, of course, and the wounded heroes made their little speeches, and the quartet sang “How Do You Do,” and everyone was glad to see them. They stayed until the Mandarins played “Home Sweet Home,” "and so did we, all of us.” Then the great day was over. Everyone took part in the celebration—everyone felt as if the team had really done something—everyone was chuck full of pep and spirit and good will, and everything went off with a bang! It was one great day and one real celebration. All we want now are more occasions to celebrate state championships. rate titTHE STAG EMeletean Vaudeville “THE FABLES OF 1925” Normal Auditorium, February 26, 1925 Selections - -- -- -- -- Orchestra 1.

MITCHELL Coach Mitchell Not so ninny years ago River Falls ranked as one of the weaker Normals in debating. While its teams usually won part of their debates, the saying was common that "River Falls has the brawn, but not the brain.” Today the situation is different, and our Normal ranks as one of the leaders in forensics. The man responsible for this great change is Coach Mitchell. When he came here in the spring of 1920, interest in debate was at a low ebb. We had just lost debates to both Superior and Eau Claire, and the outlook for the next year was equally dismal. However, with Mr. Mitchell at the helm the next season the team went far beyond expectations and actually won the northern championship. The next year interest in debating reached a high level, and the team justified the interest by sweeping away all opposition and bringing home the first state championship ever offered in debating among the Wisconsin Normals. The next two years, while no more championships were won, the teams were of high caliber, and interest in forensic work continued to run high. Then this year the team again won the northern championship and barely missed winning the state title. Mr. Mitchell has been equally successful in other lines of forensic coaching. His orators have placed at the state contest three times in five years; while in extemporaneous speaking, a new contest, the River Falls entrant has placed once in two attempts. The reason for this unusual record is apparent when we consider our coach s qualifications for his work. He came here from Lawrence College, where lie had made an enviable record in debating. When he took charge of the Normal teams, he was not content to sit back and direct the debaters, but threw himself wholeheartedly into the work, really leading the teams, instead of driving them. Couple with this intense interest in the work his likeable personality, and the reason his teams always work so hard and are so well prepared is evident. With such a coach in charge of our public speaking department we can look forward to many more successful forensic seasons. Pag is Debate This was a most successful year in debate. More debates were held than in any previous year; all of them were well attended and enthusiastically supported by the student body; and we all but won the state championship. The try-out was held early in November, and the following were selected to comprise the debate squad for the year: Carleton Ames, Everett Smith, Margaret Bailey, Margaret Mc- Dermott, John Burke, Fred Wandrey, Wayne Taylor, Reynold Jensen, Frances I.ethlean, Mildred Ingalls, and Hoi lie Williams. The question selected for discussion was a very timely and interesting one—that of giving Congress the power to override Supreme Court decisions by a two thirds vote. Our first three debates were no decision ones with two of the Minnesota colleges. On February 18 we held a dual meet with Macalcster and on February 25 our negative met the Gustavus Adolphus affirmative. Fred Wandrey, Margaret Bailey, and Everett Smith (closer) comprised the affirmative team, while John Burke, Margaret McDermott, and Carleton Ames (closer) made up the negative. The conference debates began March 6 with our usual triangular debate with Superior and Eau Claire. Our negative journeyed to Kau Claire, while the affirmative met Superior on the home platform. Our teams were victorious in both encounters and thus won the right to represent the northern triangle in the state championship round. Our opponents this time were Plattcvillc, winner in the southern triangle, and Oshkosh, winner in the central. These debates were held March 27, our affirmative meeting Platteville at Plattcvillc, while the Oshkosh affirmative clashed with our negative here. We won at Plattcvillc , but lost out in a hard fought battle here. Oshkosh won from Plattcvillc at Oshkosh, thereby winning the championship and leaving us in second place and runners up. The teams which represented us this year undoubtedly rank among the best that we have ever had. Every one of the six did exceptionally good work, but Carle-ton Ames, Everett Smith, and Margaret Bailey deserve special mention. Only Wandrey and Burke of this year’s teams will be back next year. IffOratory The local oratorical contest was held in assembly January 18th. Catherine Chapman, winner of last year’s contest, again won first honors with her oration “The Role of American Women.” Miss Chapman was the unanimous choice of the five judges for first place. Everett Smith was awarded second place with “Our Endangered Liberty” as his topic. Miss Chapman again represented us at the state contest and did so very splendidly, winning third place in a field of nine. Superior won first and Oshkosh second. REYNOLD JENSEN CATHERINE CHAPMAN Extemporaneous Speaking The local extemporaneous speaking contest was held in assembly, January 20th. Four survivors of preliminary contests—Reynold Jensen, Carlcton1 Ames, John Burke, and Everett Smith—took part. The general topic for discussion was “The Constitution of the United States.” Mr. Jensen, winner of last year’s contest, again emerged victor, while Mr. Smith, winner of second in oratorical, also plaeed second in extemporaneous speaking. While Mr. Jensen did not place in the state contest, he just missed doing so, finishing fifth among the nine contestants. Oshkosh won first and Stevens Point second. WEARERS OF THE FORENSIC "R” The forensic “R” is a key awarded to our representatives in forensics upon a point basis. Five points arc awarded to an individual representing the school in oratory or extemporaneous shaking at the state contest, and five additional points for winning first, second, or third place in the contest. Five points are awarded to members of debate teams each year with an additional five to members of state championship teams. The wearers of the “R” are as follows: Forensic “R” (plain key awarded Laura Kellar '21 John Williams '21 Leo Shannon '21 Win Bird '23 Allan McAndrews ’23 for 5 points). Philip Mitchell ’23 Margaret McDermott ’25 Kenneth Preston ’25 John Burke '25 Honor Forensic “R” (key with one star awarded for 10 points).

H. Hunt O. Eggebrecht E. J. Prucharhe Coaches COACH EGGEBRKCIIT A man’s worth can perhaps be best judged by his record. Certainly Coach Eggebrecht's record speaks for itself. "Eggs’ ” first reputation as an athlete was earned at Wausau. He began his school career at River Falls in 1915-16, earning his place on the championship team of that year. During the year 1916-17, he was elected to pilot the team to another state championship. During these same years he played center on the basket-ball team, and was an important factor in bringing a basket-ball championship to River Falls. Through persistent effort our coach made the Wisconsin University team in 1920. He began his career as coach at River Falls in 1921. Xot being satisfied with turning out a winning team that year, he placed on our records a championship basket-ball team the next year, which was followed this year by a championship in football. Coach Eggebrecht’s four commandments for a championship team are: fundamentals, co-operation, training, and principles. Certainly with such a code and such a coach River Falls is in line for more championships in athletics.COACH VERRETTE This is Coach Vcrrcttc’s second year at River Falls. He came to River Falls from Ripon College, where lie achieved a wonderful record in football. Not only was he a great football man, but he was considered one of the best track men in the state. He has ably assisted Coach Eggebreeht in football. As everyone realises the need of a strong second team for scrimmage, so that need was realised in the able coaching of Verrettc. full teams out for practice all year, it was necessary that we have a coach for the third team. "Andy’s” team not only scrimmaged against the first team, but also furnished the local high school some stiff practice battles. COACH ANDERSON Pagt 1381 F'r u n n □ A j I : [ 1 r i !( u H 11 r AI 11 - CAPTAIN SMITH, QUARTERBACK In spite of the fact that the goddess of ill luck chose Mike as her victim, it may be truly said that Captain Smith capped his football career in a blaze of glory. With phenomenal speed and side-stepping Mike proved the most consistent ground gainer in the three years he participated, and truly earned the reputation as the fastest back in the Normal conference. Mike was an ideal captain for our state champs. The esteem in which he was held by his team-mates and classmen was manifest when lie was borne from the field in the Eau Claire game. Incidentally there was left a vacancy at quarter as well as in the hearts of the Red and White supporters.FOOTBALL SCHEDULE October 4—Hamline .............. 0 River Falls October 11—Luther Plialen ...... 0 River Falls October 18—Stout .............. 10 River Falls October 24—Fort Snclling ....... 0 River Falls November 1—Eau Claire (Homecoming) 0 River Falls November 8—Stevens Point ........ 0 River Falls November 15—Superior ............ 0 River Falls 6 6 13 21 3 6 7 CONFERENCE STANDINGS Team Won Lost Percentage River Falls .......-......................... 4 0 1.000 Oshkosh 3 2 .600 La Crosse ................................. 2 1 .667 Milwaukee .................... :.......... 2 1 .667 Superior ......... ....:................. 2 2 .500 Eau Claire ? 2 .500 Whitewater v............................... 2 1 .667 Stout ..................................... 1 2 .334 Stevens Point ....... —................... 1 5 .167 Platteville .. 1 .200 Page noState Champions Top How—Eggcbrccht (Coach), Vcrrctte (Assistant Coach), Paulson, Hagcmann, H.

Page hiThe Season HAMLINE............. 0 RIVER FALLS.............. 6 The opening game of the 1924 championship season was with Hamline University of St. Paul. As Ham line University ranked well toward the top in Minnesota conference circles, n hard game was expected. From the outset of the game it was apparent that neither tcum would score heavily. Throughout the first half both teams resorted to straight football, River Falls having the edge on her opponents. In the third quarter our line again showed its strength and set the fans in a frenzy. After a series of successful line smashes, short passes, and blocking of punts, the Falls backed the Ilnmlinites to their five yard line where they were forced to punt. Here Hcggcn broke through and blocked the punt, and Hecbink converted it into a touchdown. Pat Ingli’s attempt at goal fell short of the bar. Hamlinc came back in the last quarter and forced the Falls to their own two-yard line. Here a stonewall defense prevented them from making a touchdown. As the last whistle blew, River Falls led 6-0, having annexed her first game. LUTHER PHALEN.......... 0 RIVER FALLS.... 6 In a rather listless game, in which much ragged football was displayed, River Falls annexed her second victory of the season by defeating Luther College at St. Paul 6-0. The game was characterized by frequent fumbles, numerous penalties, and poor passing on both sides. River Falls, in a slump, seemed to contribute more than her share. Some of the Lutheran followers on the side-lines thought the game was a thriller, as they saw their orange and black warriors hold the conquerors of Hamline to the same score. STOUT ____________ 10 RIVER FALLS.__________ 13 Dismay was in the hearts of the loyal Stout supporters when their team went to defeat in the last minute of play of a very thrilling game. Their Homecoming was put to a rather sad state of affairs. River Falls started the first quarter with a rush that soon put the ball in a position for a drop kick. “Pat” Ingli booted the ball squarely between the goal posts for the first score of the game. The remainder of the first quarter was spent in tearing off 20 and 30 yard runs. At the beginning of the second quarter the fellows marched up the field and made first down on Stout’s six yard line. Three line bucks failed to put the ball over, so Captain Smith shot a pass to Maier who went over the chalk line unmolested. During the first half River Falls made seven first downs to Stout’s none, and 125 yards to Stout’s 20 from scrimmage. The third quarter was a repetition of the first except that further scoring was not accomplished by either team. In the last quarter, Stout pushed the ball down the field and made a place kick. Getting the ball again, they marched down the field and made first down on our one yard line. Two line smashes put the ball over the line and tied the score at 10 to 10. River Falls marched down the field and put the ball in position for a drop-kick. Brookes sent it between the bars, thus ending our first conference game with a victory of 13 to 10.RIVER FALLS 0 21 FORT SNELLING................ The practice game with the team from Fort Snelling was a repetition of the game last year with that team, except that the Fort had a much better team. During the entire game our goal was not in danger, the opponents only at one time advancing to our twenty yard line. The team played a good game, Heebinlc converting two blocked punts into touchdowns. Although Fort Snelling lost by a heavy score, the game was interesting from the sidelines. HOMECOMING GAME RIVER FALLS.........— 3 EAU CLAIRE................... 0 In a well earned but costly game. River Falls annexed its second conference victory at the Homecoming game, 3 to 0. By beating Eau Claire, River Falls retained first place with Oshkosh in the conference running. Our championship hopes received a severe blow when our captain, “Mike” Smith, rated as the fastest man in the Normal conference, suffered a broken leg and was carried from the field. From this period on it was win for “Mike,” and win they did. The first quarter was fought in favor of River Falls, Eau Claire being unable to gain n yard through our line. Ingli attempted a drop kick, but the ball went wild. The second quarter was a repetition of the first, see-sawing back and forth. Eau Claire advanced to our twenty yard line and attempted a drop kick which failed. The third quarter meant the well earned victory. The ball was advanced to Eau Claire’s fifteen yard line. “Pat” Ingli went in for Lawrcnz and sent a perfect drop kick between the goal posts for the only score of the game. From the time that Mike broke his leg until the end of the game, the River Falls team fought like demons, Eau Claire being unable to gain a yard. The biggest and hardest game of the season ended in a victory 3 to 0. Page 14} THE HOMECOMING GAMESTEVENS POINT. 0 RIVER FALLS... 6 River Falls Leads Conference The game with Stevens Point—the last on our gridiron—was played on a field covered with snow, the temperature being below freezing. In spite of the adverse conditions, fumbles were comparatively few and the closeness of the fight kept the side-lines on edge during the entire game. In the first quarter ‘ Pat Ingli received a broken bone in his “kicking foot" and was carried from the field to the hospital to share twin beds with “Mike." In the first quarter the Stevens Point team rushed our men off their feet. They advanced the ball to our one-foot line, but there they struck a stone wall. The remainder of the game was played in Stevens Point’s territory, the only score of the game coming in the second quarter when Maicr grabbed a pass for ten yards and Dawson plunged over the line to victory. The victory put our team in the lead in the conference as Oshkosh was beaten by Milwaukee Normal to 0. SUPERIOR............. 0 RIVER FALLS............. 7 1,000% Champions Displaying the old fight and dash that had characterized their attack all season, the River Falls Normal football team emerged victorious over Superior, 7 to 0, and again brought state championship honors to River Falls. The game was clean and fast, despite a slippery field. Every man on the team realized his part in the game and played a stellar game. Many fumbles resulted on the part of Superior, but Buck Gardiner, our “fumble snatcher," gained possession of most of them. Radcmachcr delighted in receiving about two-thirds of Superior's passes, grabbing them out of the air from all angles. Not once did the opponents threaten our goal line. This game ended our championship season. An enviable record was made, our team remaining undefeated at the hands of conference and non-conference opponents. Only one team crossed our goal line during the year. A summary of scores resulted in River Falls 62 points; opponents 10 points. Although “Mike” and "Pat" could not play in the last game of the season, they were ably entertained at the hospital during their month’s stay.The Team Nelson, Cap't-Elcct CAPTAIN-ELECT NELSON. FULLBACK River Falls was fortunate in having as capable a fullback as Matt to guide its football team to tile state championship in the absence of Captain Smith. Cool and steady. Matt showed rare judgment in selecting plays and scenting opponents’ plays through the line. Matt always played a heady game, and his superb work in backing up the line was deserving of much credit. The team of 1925 will have a. valuable asset in Captain Nelson. GARDINER, LEFT GUARD Buck held down the guard position in championship style. His aggressiveness and versatility made him an important cog in Eggcbrccht’s machine. This was especially evident in the state championship game, where Buck distinguished himself in knocking down and intercepting passes and scooping up fumbles. His inspiring words had a beneficial influence upon his teammates. Buck crowned his football career in the Superior game. GardinerQUANDT, LEFT HALF Quandt upheld the reputation of the Wausau athletes. There was a world of confidence in the team while Hale was in the backficld. Speed and dodging ability made him a dangerous open field runner. His line plunges were terrific, and when yardage was needed Hale would conn through head and shoulders over the mixup. In the championship game Hale distinguished himself with successive plunges for first downs. Hale has another year, which will give the Red and White a dangerous backfield. Quandt IXGLI, RIGHT GUARD Ingli was another hard luck victim of the squad. In the Point game previous to the championship game Pat was injured and joined Mike in the hospital. Ingli starred on the gridiron at Ellsworth. He came here last year and made his letter. This year Pat was shifted from end to guard where lie proved a fixture. Ingli's punting and drop kicking made him a valuable asset to the team. Red and White supporters will recall the exciting moments in the Eau Claire game when Pat was called back and sent the pigskin through the bars for the only score of the game. Pat will be back next year to help bring another championship to River Falls. HEGGEN, RIGHT END Heggen at right end completed the pair of fiasliy wings. Heggen added fire to the line with his inspirational words. He delighted in tantalizing the opposition and then bowling them over. It was not an uncommon sight to sec Harold breaking through to block punts. Heggen will prove valuable material for another state championship team in 1925.I.AWKENZ, RIGHT GUARD A team is ns strong ns its substitutes. With I.aw-renz in reserve the River Falls line remnined a stone wall whenever I.awrcnz was sent in. I.nwrenz participated in ninny games, and when injuries came, he proved the equal of the veterans. By hard work on the All-American and second teams, I.awrcnz convinced Conch Eggcbrccht that he was ready for a on a state championship team. He achieved his aim by playing the entire Superior game. Luwrenz MAI IS It, RIGHT HALF Wjhen the necessary yardage was needed Maier could be depended upon to advance the ball. In every game Maier came through with a long run. With graceful stature and perfect form it was a pleasure to see “Al” carry the ball. His stiff arm was deadly and “Al" left a mark wherever he hit. Getting in the air after passes was his meat. Maier has another year of conference football, and the Stanley boy will be material for another state championship team. Maier Hardie HARD IE, GUARD Hardie was another line reserve who soon proved the equal of the veterans. With Ingli out in the Point game Hardie went in and held down guard in great style. Hardie was irresistible on defense and deserves much credit for the failure of opponents’ line smashes to materialize. He wrought dismay to the opponents who fell into his clutches. We hope Hardie will be back again next year. Far wHAGEMANN, RIGHT TACKLE We had a pair of tackles who never met a better pair all season. Hagcmann possessed all the qualities of a real taekler. On defense no one went through him. With his powerful arms he threw all back alike who eamc his way. As a line breaker he was a human catapult. Art hails from Ellsworth where he learned the intricacies of the game. Though his first appearance on the Red and White, Art easily found a berth on the team with his all-around football aggressiveness. Hagcmann HEEBINK, LEFT TACKLE Hccbink was the real find of the team. Con-pleting his last year in school, Mike decided to take a whirl at football, and, lo and behold, what a wonder he proved to be! Mike was a tower of strength on the line and a deadly tackier. To block him was impossible. Game after game, Mike would pierce through and nip the play in the bud. His delight was to get in front of punts which on several occasions were converted into touchdowns. We regret that a man with such ability is to leave 118. Hccbink Budomachor RADEMACIIER, LEFT END End runs around River Falls this year were few and far between. In Rudy at left end a more compact bunch of football ability never trotted out on Rainer field. With a wealth of end material Rady survived the stiff competition and retained his old berth, where he ought to prove a terror next year. To bowl over men twice his size was his meat. Besides giving good interference, Rady made a mean tackle and was equally adept at receiving and intercepting passes. His hobby is to get down on punts and nail the man in his tracks. Page i.j6O’MALLEY, HALF O’Malley, a product of the local High, made a most impressive showing the first year out. With the drive and speed of a locomotive “Red” could tear off gains without any interference. He participated in nearly every game of the season, and his speed and drive gave him his cognomen “Red Grange.” With two more years the little Irishman ought to prove a terror in the Normal conference. PAULSON, CENTER Paulson came here direct from Mt. Iiorcb High School where lie won football fame. By hard work and conscientious training he won the important keystone berth, and thereby relieved Coach Eggebrccht of a huge problem. Paulson was a hard worker and played faultless ball all season, participating in every conference game. We arc glad “Walt” decided to come to River Falls, and with two more years he should develop into a star line man. Paulson Dawson, L. LOWELL DAWSON, QUARTER Dawsy was handicapped because of his light weight, hut his qualities and knowledge of the game forced his place on the team. When injuries deprived the team of its captain, Dawsy stepped into Mike’s shoes and held down quarter like a veteran and proved a dangerous man. His punting and line charges were an important factor in winning many games. In the Stevens Point and Superior games, Dawsy’s work will not soon be forgotten. Watch Lowell on the gridiron next fall. O’MalleyCAPTAIN BERGMAN Bcrgy’s record on the Normal team has been a long and enviable one. Last vear Bcrgy created a sensation on foreign floors as a running guard. This year Bcrgy was .shifted to the forward position and with Clcbcrg formed a pair of forwards that were a terror to opposing guards. In dribbling, passing, and pivot Bcrgy proved beyond a doubt the cleverest floor man in the conference. He was a strong offensive and defensive player. Unfortunately Bergman was declared ineligible, as he had played the maximum time, which caused our championship hopes to suffer.THE MELETEAN BASKET-BALL SCHEDULE Dec. 10—St. Thomas at St. Paul Dec. 13—Carleton at N orth field Dec. 18—Hamline at St. Paul Jan. 3—Alumni at River Falls Jan. 9—Superior at River Falls Jan. 16—St. Thomas at River Falls Jan. 23—Eau Claire at River Falls Jan. 24-—St. Mary’s at Winona Jan. 30—Stout at River Falls Jan. 31—Macalestcr at St. Paul Feb. 6—Stevens Point at River Falls Feb. 13—Stout at Menomonic Feb. 20—Eau Claire at Eau Claire Feb. 21—St. Mary’s at River Falls Feb. 27—Superior at Superior March 3—Augsburg at River Falls March 5—Stevens Point at Stevens Point March 7—Wausau All-Stars at Wausau CONFERENCE STANDINGS Team Won Lost Percentagi Oshkosh 8 0 1.000 8 0 1.000 River Falls 6 2 .750 Superior 4 4 .500 4 4 .500 Milwaukee 3 4 .430 Whitewater .. 8 4 .430 Stout 2 5 .290 Stevens Point 1 7 .125 Platteville 0 4 .000The Season RIVER FALLS............ 22 SUPERIOR.......... 12 Coach Eggcbrccht’s aggregation of basket cagcrs got a noteworthy start in their first conference game here by defeating Superior by a score of 22 to 12. A pleasing aspect of the game was the improved floor work and handling of the ball by our team. Superior had a well-balanced machine and showed flashes of clever floor work, but their shooting at close range was very poor for the few tries that they had. The game started out in whirlwind fashion. Superior's rushing offense speeded up the game, but they could not penetrate the strong "Falls" defense. Gronseth of Superior started the scoring by a foul shot. Heebink's shot from the court put our team in the lead which was never overtaken. A follow-in shot by Dawsy, a long one by Quandt, and a basket on the tip-off by Clcbcrg made the count 8 to 3. Coppy. who was sent in for Connally of Superior, sank two long tries, making the score 7 to 9. Bergy and Clcbcrg each scored a basket before the half ended. During the second half baskets by Bergy, Quandt, and Heebink brought the score to 22 to 12. The game was clean and well officiated. RIVER FALLS............ 31 EAU CLAIRE............ 34 Although the team suffered defeat at the hands of the strong Eau Claire five, they put up perhaps the host exhibition of comeback fight ever shown on our floor. It was the red-headed Olson who beat our team, for lie scored seven field goals and four out of six free throws. Eau Claire started the scoring with a field goal by Olson. Quandt then sank in his customary long one. Eau Claire took a strong lead, but after a time-out by River Falls, the score stood 10 to 11. The half finally ended 14 to 14. Long shots again put Eau Claire in the lead by 18 to 27. M ith the old fighting spirit and excellent floor work River Falls brought the score 30 to 31. Shots by Heebink, Bergy, Quandt, and Dawsy circled the rim but wouldn’t fall in. Horan of F.nu Claire finally cinched the score by a long shot in the last few seconds of play. Although Captain Bergman was under the severe handicap of a hadly infected toe, lie played a very strong game. Pate 153RIVER FALLS. 24 STOUT 16 The team added another conference game to their string by defeating Stout 22 to 16 on Stout’s floor. The game was rather slow and ragged, Stout’s floor work, passing, and shooting being very poor. Although the Falls displayed a good game of ball, their shooting at close range was rather poor. About thirty personal fouls were called during the game. Dawson started the scoring by a foul shot. River Falls ran the score up to 5. Two baskets by Stout and one by Captain Bcrgy brought the score 7 to 5. A shot by one of Stout’s men and a long one by Clebcrg gave the Falls the lead again. At the end of the half the score was 12 to 7 in the Falls’ favor. The second half opened with hard playing on both sides. Cleberg sank two foul shots, followed shortly by a field goal by Setter of Stout. Radke went in and added a count for Stout, but from this time until the end of the game the Falls forged ahead. Cleberg and Bergman sank them in at will. With only about four minutes left to play, Lawrence Dawson, Gibson, and Donovan were sent into the fray. The game ended 16 to 24. RIVER FALLS........... 41 STEVENS POINT.................. 13 In a one-sided game the team completely outclassed Stevens Point by a lopsided score of 41 to 13. Although the game was not fast, it was amusing from the spectator’s point of view. The field plays of River Falls were executed with timely precision which usually ended in u field goal. The game was clean, not more than two fouls being called on any one man. River Falls ran the score up to 8 to 0 before Stevens Point mode their first score on a foul shot by Williams which drew a loud cheer from the crowd. After a series of head-on collisions, bumps, and substitutions, the half ended 21 to 8. Stevens Point began the scoring in the second half by running their score to 13 before River Falls got a start. From this time on, River Falls scored at will. In the last few minutes of play, O’Malley, Zamjahn, and Donovan were sent into the game.RIVKR FALLS •23 STOUT... .... 19 Stout succumbed for the second time this year to our hoop artists by a score ol 23 to 19. Stout showed a better brand of basket-ball than in their previous game, but as a whole the game was slow and ragged. There was very little scoring in the first half. Cleberg and Quandt added most of the points for the Falls, while Allen and Setter scored for Stout. The half ended 9 to 10 in favor of River Falls. The Falls came back in the second half with a better brand of basket-ball. With the score 13 to 16, Setter soon made the score 16 to 16. Gibby broke the tic on a foul short, and River Falls broke away for sofc lead which they kept throughout the remainder of the game. Cleberg, with six field goals and three foul shots, was high point man of the game. River Falls received a stunning blow when her captain was declared ineligible by the Normal Athletic Board. The Cleberg to Bergman combination near the basket, which usually resulted in a score, was missing. Bergman was recognized ns the best all around basket-ball man in the Normal conference. RIVER FALLS........... 12 EAU CLAIRE---------- 22 River Falls hit a fast stride at the beginning of the game and piled up a lead of 8 to 2 before Eau Claire woke up. By means of free throws and a couple of long shots Eau Claire trailed at the end of the half 7 to 9. In the beginning of the second half Eau Claire’s shots from all angles pierced the net with no let-up. They piled up a lead which River Falls had no hope of overtaking. The locals seemed discouraged at this unaccustomed luck and could hardly make their free throws count. Toward the close of the game the coach sent all his subs into the game, but this did not help to break the spell. The work of Gibson the first half was decidedly pleasing; lie aided in the scoring with a long shot and two free throws. An unusually large crowd witnessed the game. Tapp and Hall officiated.THE MELETEAN RIVER FALLS.......... 13 SUPERIOR.......... 9 In a hotly contested battle the team administered a second defeat to the Su-perior Normal five at Superior by the low score of 18 to 10. The victory broke the tie between Superior and River Falls for third place in the conference. A neat basket by Heebink started the scoring. This was followed by a free throw by Donovun, and a field goal each by Donovan and Clcberg. The half ended 7 to 8 in favor of River Falls. Superior came back strong in the second half and ran up six points to their score. Gibson, who went in for Donovan, started the scoring for the Falls in the second half by a field goal. The score stood at 10 to 11 with River Falls still in the lead which they took at the outset and lield throughout. In the last few minutes of play Donovan sank a field goal which put the game on ice. RIVER FALLS.......... 28 STEVENS POINT...... 19 The team closed their conference schedule with the defeat of Stevens Point with a score of 28 to 19. The Point presented a more polished team than was seen here and played the Falls on nearly even terms the first half, which ended 12 to 11 in our favor. Both teams started u strong defensive game. Toward the end of the first half it deteriorated into a slow game, because of the close officiating on held balls and traveling. With Cleberg off on shooting, the Normal lost many chances to increase their lend. However, in the last few minutes of play, with Gibson in for Donovan, their score was rapidly increased. The shooting of Gibby was the outstanding feature of the second half. With three field goals and one free throw in the second half, and one field goal in the first half, Gibson was easily the high point man of the game. Pag 156The Team CLEBERG Clcbcrg proved a clever running mate to Captain Bergman. Elusive and shifty, Bike was hard man to watch, and his cleverness with the ball and lighting gameness gave the team its strong offense. Ability to locate the net from difficult angles at opportune moments helped the Falls keep the lead in many close games. Rushing in under the basket and slipping in seemingly impossible goals was Bike’s favorite piny. Clcberg should prove a sensation in the conference next year. Cloborg QUANDT Quandt, a veteran of Inst year, proved a most valuable asset to the team both on the offensive and defensive. Full of fight at all times, with dazzling floor work Benny started many drives down the floor for a goal. Hale had a knack of getting the ball off the bounding board and getting rid of it in jig time. Few opponents’ baskets were made from close range while Benny was in the game. He was equally adept at caging goals from beyond the middle of the floor, which made him a dangerous man to leave open. Quandt LOWELL DAWSON Dawsy came direct from the local high, where he won all state consideration as guard on last year’s champion high school team. Lowell worked well into Eggebrecht’s style of play and immediately landed the open guard berth. Though outweighed by heavier opponents, Dawsy made the best of them travel with his hard, clean playing. Dav sy will be one of the mainstays on next year’s team. Dawson pot I57LAWRENCE DAWSON Another guard of ability came to us in Lawrence Dawson, a brother and tcamnmtc of Lowell —the pair of guards that brought fame to the local high school. Injuries from football caused “Big” Dawsy a delay in getting out, but lie soon proved a hard hitting guard and an alternate for his brother. In many games Lawrence went in before Lowell even started, but in any event, it was Dawson for Dawson at guard. Next year the pair should constitute the Normal guards. Dawson DONOVAN Hv hard and persistent .effort Rollic closed his basketball career for the Red and White with two stripes on his sweater. In Donovan the team had a reliable player, who could be injected into the game at any position, where he would always give his best under any circumstances. 11 is eye for the basket wrought havoc with opposing guards. In the last home game Donovan crowned his career most gloriously, and in the Superior game the week following, Rollic again came through at the opportune time, which insured River Falls second place in the conference. Donovan HEEBIXK Starring on the gridiron in his first year out, Hce-bink looked like the man for the all important pivot position on the basket-ball team. Under the capable tutoring of Coach Eggcbrccht Mike developed into the strongest defensive center that has represented the Red and White. Though probably out jumped on the tip-off, it was not long before lie got possession of the ball. On defense Mike smeared play after play that was attempted through him. Ability to cage baskets proved him a dangerous man to leave open. Mike surpassed his mates in caging follow-up shots, which shows he was a hard consistent worker. Heebink Page 15SO’MALLEY As he was not out the entire year, “Red” did not get into the conference games. “Red” is a fast, hard worker and possesses tiic drive that makes him the dashing football man. Next year “Red” should prove a capable man on the Red and White squad. GIBSON Gibson is another product of the local high, and his wealth of basket-ball ability soon brought him a place on the squad. When Captain Bergman was lost to the team, Gibby proved a capable sub for his position. Gibby is a hard worker and a fast man on the floor and should prove a valuable man on next year’s squad. Zamjahn Gibson ZAMJAHN Zamjahn hails from Chaska, Minnesota, where he starred on the local high. He got into several games throughout the year and he showed that he is the making of a real star. Zamjahn should work well into Eggcbrecht’s style of play and make a strong bid for a regular berth next year. Page IS9Baseball Team Top Row: I,. Smith, Julian, Verrette (Coach), Ziebell, M. Smith.

A need of having a better and fairer means of elimination of teams was soon realized, for it was a difficult task to pick out of the entire state only eight teams on the basis of games won to compete in this tournament. The idea of sectional tournaments for elimination to a state tournament was first actually effected by the River Falls State Normal School, being followed in later years by the other normal schools of the state. At the present time the state is divided into sixteen sections, the best teams of each section competing in a district tournament. The winning team of each of these tournaments is sent to the state tournament at Madison to compete for state honors.

Through participation in these sports there is instilled a spirit of co-operation and good fellowship. Under the capable guidance of Miss Rohcrty the G. A. A. lias become one of the foremost organizations of the school, and, owing to her inspiring leadership, it has fully accomplished its purpose. Volley ball is the first sport of the year. Competing teams are chosen from each class, and a tournament is held at the end of the season. This is followed in turn by basket-ball, in-door baseball, out-door baseball, track, and tennis. Tuesday and Thursday nights are the official times for practice, and each G. A. A. member is given the opportunity to become acquainted with these popular sports. As an added inducement to the girls to participate in these sports a sweater is awarded to each member who attains a specific number of points. These may be earned by taking part in athletic contests, hiking, winter sports, tennis, skating, skiing, and for the observance of the rules of | crsonal hygiene. Five sweaters were awarded last vear to honorarv members. Page I6fPage 165Volley Ball Team Top row—Paulson, Lindahl, Nygaard, Lunde. Bottom row—Tyvol, Beebe, Rohcrty (Coach), Holt, Lind.

W. C. A. is one of the most influential organizations on the campus. Its purpose is to uphold Christian standards and promote Christian ideals of conducting the every-day life of the school. The influence of this organization is felt in many ways. New members were brought into the organization in the early fall by a beautiful and impressive candle-light service. This service was very impressive because of its significance—each girl extinguishing the candle of Self and lighting the candle of Service. The first appearance the Y. W. C. A. made was in the work of the all-school mixer. By the combined efforts of the N. C. A., the Y. M. C. A., and the Y. W. C. A., the whole school was given a chance to get acquainted. The annual Kid Party was a great success. Other social meetings have been enjoyed. The Social Service Committee worked hard at Christmas time, so the more needy children of our town could enjoy Santa Claus. The Y. W. C. A. was represented at the Lake Geneva Conference by Ellen Lewis and Gladys Mason. Much help and inspiration was derived from this conference, and the spirit of the conference has been felt all through the year. I'oge 170The Y. W. C. A. Cabinet members were active on the committee which made plans for the Sherwood Eddy meetings. Interesting and helpful, as well as entertaining, meetings have been held every Thursday night. More C. A. this year in the hope that we could work out the plans of the C. C. A. So far they have been very successful. We were very fortunate to have a visit from Miss Rebecca Reid, the State Y. W. C. A. Traveling Secretary. She gave us many hints of how to make the co-operation of both the faculty and the students. We express our gratitude to faculty members, especially Miss Hatliorn and Miss Bridges, to all the advisors, and to the townspeople who willingly gave their services. of our meetings have been held jointly with the Y.

Again the Young Men’s Christian Association has played an ini| ortant part in the lives of the men of the school. Although the membership was not as large as it has been in previous years, the weekly devotional meetings were very well attended. This, we believe, is an evidence of the vital interest that the young men of the school take in the principles for which the organization stands. The weekly meetings have been devoted, for the most part, to talks and discussions of live problems confronting the men of the school. Cabinet meetings were held every week after the devotional meeting. The business of the organization was transacted at this time, after which a profitable period was spent in the study of Sherman’s “Jesus in the Records.” These cabinet meetings were most successful and it is hoped that they will become a permanent part of the program of the organization. As a Christian organization, we stand for honest class work, dean athletics, pure social relationships, and service to the other fellow.

C. A. is on organization of the Catholic students and faculty members of the school. It is one of tl : largest and most active organizations of the school and has for its purpose the developing of its members religiously, socially, and mentally. Weekly meetings are held throughout the year. At these meetings arc given a variety of programs which include talks on religious matters or topics of the day, musical selections, instrumental and vocal, and various other numbers appropriate for the occasion. Members of the society have the privilege of contributing to these programs. Many outside speakers and entertainers appear on the program throughout the year. Catholic students have an excellent opportunity to appear before an audience and acquire the knack of public speaking before an appreciative audience. This is optional with the students; the N. C. A. only wishes the presence of all its members at its meetings. The N. C. A. has many social affairs throughout the year which insure good lively times to its members. Picnics in the park, a big Christmas party, as well as many other parties at the church basement and elsewhere afford ample amusement for all who go to them. To the untiring efforts of our active advisor, Mr. Prucha, as well as our priest. Father Fosbender, much of the success of the organization is due. Father Fosbender extends to the N. C. A. the privilege of the church parlors and all their conveniences, where many good times are had. In the organization athletic contest, the N. C. A. has made an enviable reputation. Last year her athletics carried off the organisation basket-ball and baseball championship, and this year they bid fair to duplicate this feat. X. C. A. members also take an active part in the social and athletic affairs of the school. Her members have furnished excellent talent to the debating squads, athletic teams, and all other activities of the school. Pag 174Page 175Page 176 G. O. P. First Semester Donna Brown Ellen Lewis Thelma Segeksthom Ursula Gauvin OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Second Semester - Donna Brown Bernice Siieldrew Alice Dunn - Harriet Beede Miss Roherty, Faculty Advisor The G. O. P., one of the largest girls’ organizations of the school, stands for "girls on promotion." The society stands ready to enthusiastically support all worthy enterprises and activities of the school. The fact that this support is so freely given rates the G. O. P. 100% in school spirit. One of the aims of G. O. P. is to encourage interest in current events by talks and discussions at the regular meetings. Through the study of etiquette, poise and self-confidence are strengthened. This knowledge is applied at teas, dances, luncheons, and other social functions which they give throughout the year. The elements of parliamentary practice are studied and applied at the meetings. The society not only fosters good fellowship but also aids in enabling its members to strengthen their ability to adapt themselves to their environment. The outstanding social events of the year are the G. O. P. ball and the alumnae banquet. There arc many other events that promote their social life. The G. O. P. stands for work too. As the society must have funds to carry on its activities, the girls pull together and earn money for their society. At the time of the Stout game, the girls not only earned enough money to enable them to go with the team but they also served lunelies to the rooters on the train. All G. O. P.’s feel that the helpful suggestions of their loyal advisor. Miss Roherty, have been of great value in promoting the spirit of the society.ragemmTHE MELETEAN Civic Club First Semester OFFICERS Second Semester Sylva Hunt President Charles Habkck John Pokier - - Vice President - Hulda Swedburo Irma Mitciiki.l Secretary and Treasurer - Lorene Brackix Mr. Davison, Faculty Advisor The Civic Club is the only organization that maintains an open forum. Its membership is very democratic; in fact any student in the school is eligible to membership in the Civic Club. The purposes of the Civic Club are many. Some of them are: to make one more tolerant of the ideas of others as well as to be able to express his own ideas; to teach one correct forms of parliamentary practice as well as to instill confidence in speaking. Some of the subjects discussed at meetings of the Civic Club this year were the Ku Klux Klan, Marriage and Divorce, and Evolution. We surely were fortunate in having Mr. Davison for our advisor. His broadminded attitude toward all civic questions helped us to secure a fair and unbiased view of things, which we could not have had otherwise.Edwin Pulling Stanley Gunnks Myrtle Strand Margaret Prosser Hazel Heyer Judith Carleson OFFICERS - President Vice President - Secretary .: ?; - - Treasurer - - - - Chairman Program Committee - Member of Social Committee Mr. Mai.ott. Faculty Advisor The Rural Life Club is an organization composed of the members of the Rural Department of the school. The purpose of the organization is to give to its members training and experiences which will be valuable to them as teachers of the rural schools. The social aim of the Rural Life Club is represented in the practice which it provides in planning and presenting its programs. A part of several of the meetings held through the year is devoted to parliamentary practice. The organization also aims to develop a broader knowledge and a greater appreciation of literature, art, and drama. Many discussions of such topics are held in the meetings. The main and most important object of the Rural Life Club is to promote ability to speak effectively before a group and to present a speech in the proper manner. The meetings of the organization are held regularly the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. Under the skillful leadership of Mr. Malott, our advisor, the year has proved n success; Page SiLincolnian First Semester OFFICERS Second Semester Fred H. Wandry President - Fred II.

Through years of change and progress, not always at her best, The Aurelia has grown along with all the rest; Till now she ranks in station with others of her kind. And takes her place in school life—none better can you find. Much praise is due Miss Schlosser, who through the year has been Not only our advisor but a true and loyal friend. She guides us in our pathway ns she fills her chosen role, And always keeps before us Aurelia’s aim and goal. While study, work, and knowledge arc three factors of success; We feel that pleasure also is a factor like the rest; And so in sleigh-rides, parties, and programs of moment. In picnics, dance, and banquet, our merry hours are spent. Page 1S4 Page x8$Agrifallian First Semester Mkrrill Halrox Hrxry Pederson -John C. Burke William Moo he OFFICERS President Vice President Treasurer Secretary Mr. Johnson, Faculty Advisor Second Semester Clayton Holmes - Karl Miller Ledyix It. Mjaaxka - Elmer Koenig The Agrifaliian is an organization of the agricultural students of the River Falls State Normal School. It is one of the oldest men’s organizations in the school, having been established in 1912. At first meetings were held once a month. On account of the growth of the organization meetings arc now held every first and third Thursday of each month. Its object is not only to stimulate interest in agriculture, but also to give public speaking and parliamentary practice. This year marks the greatest success in the history of the organization. We have had some unusually fine debates. The grain and poultry show, put on in December, 1924, was very successful. More than four hundred exceptionally fine birds were exhibited. Some of these birds would offer very strong competition to those shown at any of the larger poultry shows. One of the features of the poultry show was the large number of exhibits shown by the boys and girls. The exhibits of grain were also of very high quality. Some very good samples of corn and small grains were shown. The Agrifallian also helps put on a Stock Show and put on an annual field day in May. The field day last year, 1924, was very successful. Demonstrations and educational exhibits of great value to the future agriculture teachers were given by the agricultural students. After the field day the first annual Agrifallian banquet was held. The future of the Agrifallian looks promising indeed. We hope the Agrifallian will continue in the future, as it has in the past, to do its bit in helping River Falls Normal maintain its high standing in agricultural education in Wisconsin. I'ogf iS6The Student Social Committee OFFICERS Wayne Taylor - - - - - ■ - - - President Paul Rosenburg Vice President Ellen Lewis -.....................................- Secretary Lawrence Dawson - Treasurer The object of the Student Social Committee is to promote all social activities in the school. This year, contrary to former custom, the members of this committee held office throughout the year. Through the help of the McDowell Club it was made possible for the Social Committee to offer the students a high class musical entertainment by securing Leo Kruczek. a noted violinist of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, to give a recital. Plans were under way to make a skating rink on the old athletic field, but due to unforeseen difficulties in carrying this out it was dropped until next year. The students have enjoyed the numerous sunset and evening dances that the Social Committee has financed. This year, because of the readjustment of the classes, the Committee is to put on the Annual Prom, which we hope to make a success. Page iSSLooking Back-1924-25 We, who will soon pass from these peaceful portals forever to east our lot with the rest of the countless pedagogues, will little note nor long remember all that we attempted to learn here, but we can never forget some of the things we did here. We turned out en masse to yell ourselves hoarse or to freeze to death at the football games, even though we knew not the difference between the goal posts and the referee; and our efforts could not have been in vain, otherwise how could our team have downed one strong adversary after another? The big event of the fall term was Homecoming, when we decorated everything with the beloved red and white and paraded through the town to make our continued existence known to the town people and to show the old grads that the old school was still carrying on. We listened to profound litterings about their love for their “grand old Alina Mater,” and marvelled at their fervent bursts of oratory. After this the school settled down to its usual routine of love, labor, and loss of sleep, until we were again jolted out of our lethargy when our heroes of the grid-. iron brought us glory and renown in the shape of a state championship. We did our best to show our appreciation by staging a celebration royal. Although some of the faculty were skeptical, we took things into our hands and for one. whole, perfect day we exalted our Invinciblcs. It was truly wonderful—Moco’s speech, the feminine football team, the parade, the bonfire, and the dance where even our battered warriors, Mike and Pat, were present. Although our girl athletes arc not heralded by many, nor is their fame broadcasted, nevertheless a number of the fair sex have a wicked eye for the basket as well as ability to execute well-planned plays with machine-like precision. It probably seemed to many that Mr. Vcrrette was out of his element when he took it upon himself to assist Miss Rohcrty in coaching the fair ones in the art of passing and shooting, but he carried on quite creditably, despite the fact that an unprecedented collision or two occurred. South Hall gym was the scene of many a lively game of volley ball and basket-ball which furnished thrills galore. The personnel of both the senior and junior teams is indeed made up of individual hoop artists, although they arc perhaps not known ns such by many of the student body. I’age 190Wonderful indeed is the dramatic talent of various members of the school-— truly convincing was Grace Cotts in her role in the play, “A Full House,” and if we hadn't been so well aware of her ability to act, we might have been tempted to think she "didn’t know nothing." Her talent is versatile—certainly words were unnecessary in the clever act of the Mclctcan Vaudeville, "A Story Without Words. The "Limericks” with which the "Dumb Quartette" so charmed the audience at the same entertainment would have indeed been "too deep” for unlearned listeners, as they suggested, had it not been for the clever interpretations of the prim performers, accompanied by their superior knowledge and practice in the art of bowing. Term examinations struck terror in tlic hearts of even the supposedly brilliant, but evervone managed to survive, although many stated their intentions of taking a correspondence course in "How to Find Fifteen Minutes to Study While You Attend Normal.” What a wonderful rest Christmas vacation was to tired brains! But strange as it may seem, the majority returned more tired than they went, but whether from physical or mental exercise, we cannot judge. During the winter we came across "Dizz” Smith, “King" Ames, "Peg” Bailey and others of the bunk-shooting variety, gesticulating wildly or shouting hoarsely at the empty chairs of the auditorium, but surely these efTorts were not in vain, for they were winners in the wordy battles with Kau Claire and Superior. These masters of the mighty minds who matched their wits against those of the representatives of Oshkosh and Plattcville came out as winners of second place in the state. It was to be regretted that the cruel hand of fate so arranged things that Peg Bailey had to debate against Platteville, when Oskosli might have proved so much more interesting. No doubt the trip to Platteville was quite enjoyable, though, with such handsome and talented young men as Fred Wandrey, Wayne Taylor, and Prof. Mitchell as company. “Dizz’ ” one lament lias always been, “I’ve never felt the kiss of love, nor maiden’s hand in mine,” but we fervently hope that this one great ambition was realized, for it is rumored that an orator of the fair sex from Eau Claire quite captivated him. At least he returned flat broke, which is quite conclusive evidence that there must have been a girl in the case. Taking it all in all, we, who, as we said before, are passing on, think that the year of 1924-25 has been one of “great things done by great people.” So say we all.Pane 19.AFTER DARK INJUSTICE IN OUR SCHOOL The men in this school don t think it’s fair—they believe they ought to be allowed to have light wine as long as Dan Wile has his "Beers.” THE MORNING AFTER Reynold to Neil: "Have they nice-looking furniture at her house?” Little Jens: "I dunno—I didn't turn on the lights to see. Grace Cotts (speaking of scenery): "Gee! I think the hills around River Falls are wonderful.” Fern Gauvin (dreamily): "Yes, and isn’t the South Fork romantic? I just love Brooks.” HEARD AT THE COACHES’ APARTMENTS "Eggs” to Verrettc: “■Heads I go— tails you stay home.” And Otto went. Prof. "Jake” (explaining water hammer) : "Water hits the side of the container, thereby making a loud noise.” "Jens” (with great foresight): "Why, one could use those for baby rattles, couldn't he?” The most necessary book for Normal is Dad’s cheek book. IF HE HAD ONLY KNOWN Janitor: "Arc you coming up here tonight, Mr. Eggcbrccht?” "Eggs”: "No, why?” Janitor: "Oh, the music teacher has orchestra rehearsal, and she wondered if anyone with a key would be around to lock the building.” "Say, how much does a fool weigh?” "I don’t know." "Why don’t you get on the scales and find out?” "Dizz”: “Only fools are positive.” "Peg”: "Arc you sure?” "Dizz”: "I am positive.” Liquor improves with age; the longer you keep it the better it is for you. Figure this out. Holding a mirror in front of Jack Ulrich, Prof. Jake said: "Did you ever see anything like that before?” Carl: "How arc you feeling?” Bclislc: "Rotton.” Carl: "Whassamatter?” Frank: "Got insomnia.” Carl: "How come?” Bclislc: "Woke up twice in Prof’s class this morning.”WE ADVOCATE— FOR A GREATER AND BETTER NORMAL: Sound-proof walls and doors on the music room, which would give Mr. Stratton the chance to "hold forth" without the usual disturbance. Traffic cops in the upper corridor of South Hall. We venture that better parking places could be found than this corridor. An official badge for faculty, so that some members will not be mistaken for students. Quiet hours for study in the library. (Incidentally, this will include the ejection or muzzling of Bill Williams during said hours.) Publishing a paper bi-weekly which would contain assembly announcements. More light in the hall leading to the cafeteria. Regulations which forbid the giving of "A’s” to students who laugh at stale jokes. Method which will eliminate the "practicing” of speeches by our debaters. (This is done for the sake of long-suffering roommates, some of whom we are afraid will become desperate.) The enlargement of the post-office lobby to accommodate the number of faculty members who arc accustomed to hold their evening siesta in that place. Better train service to River Falls. (We have heard the wails of home-sick freshmen.) Some system that will allow students to find time to study. HOW TO GET MARKS As you go each day to classes Working for your daily mark, Take a look at those about you History, Math., and Latin sharks. Not the lad who found a horseshoe Not the worker night and day, But the bird who spreads it even, Is the one who draws the “A." You may memorize your lessons You may bluster, boast, and brag, You may flatter your Professor, And attempt to work a drag. But remember this, I pray you. On the final judgment day Only he who spreads the salve on Will pull down a final "A.” WAIL OF THE PRACTICE TEACHER I would not sit in an instructor’s seat. Or hurl a professor’s bunk; Let me live in a shack By the side of the track And just gather junk! Pag 194Page 195To the Champs of 1924 Now listen, my children, and I will tell Of a football team that has played well; ’Twas in the year of twenty-four. They won the state championship—what could you want more? As they beat the other teams all to. Thus it starts, and—well. These exalted heroes of the cleat-torn turf were raised to the level of the stars. This is indeed fact and not fiction, for are they not the bright and shining lights of our glorious and far-flung training camp? These heroes toil not, neither do they flunk!! Figuratively the less worthy men stand with doffed hat and bared head when one of the Heroes approaches and proud indeed is the chosen maiden whom he deigns to escort across the trodden paths of our campus beautiful. Theirs has been a round of hard work and begriming toil, but it has also been a round of triumph, from the time Conch "Eggs’ sounded the first call early in September until they, grim, seasoned, hardened veterans, made Superior bite the dust. They are indeed worthy of having their names written in letters of living light, but we have to admit that that is beyond our power, but we will do our bit to have their names go down in the annals of history, even though it is done with printers ink. Therefore, we submit the following list of the names of Our Heroes, the Champions of 1024, together with distinguishing features of each, which will help you to more easily recognize them: MIKE SMITH—Quarter-back and Captain of pep meeting joke artists. HALE QUANDT—Halfback. An authority on de-“ Bates.” FRANK RADKMACHER—End. A comedian whose musical talent has at last been uncovered. WALTER PAULSON—Center. A member of the Sons of Nor wav Society of R. F. N. MIKE HEEBINK—Tackle. His failing seems to be short-sightedness, or perhaps a short memory. At least, he has a hard time to distinguish Ella Mac’s house. DAVE HARDIE—Our Gladstone Gladiator. HAROLD HEGGEN—End. Bun buster, musician, poet, and parlor athlete. ART HAGEMANN—Tackle. A regular cave man, it is rumored. BUCK GARDINER—Little, but oh, my!—(we admit this is trite, but it says what we mean). LOWELL DAWSON—Halfback. He’s called “Little Dawsv,” but gets by with Mildred. ALVIN MEIER—Halfback. “Lonesome and Blue”—for the last few months. MATT NELSON—A collector of jewels, but his prize one is a "Ruby.” RAY O’MALLEY—The “Red Grange” of the Normal Conference. PAT INGLI—A good student, but a wonderful lover. HAROLD LAWRENZ—As good a man on the football field as on a davenport. Page 196RADICAL CHANGES IN ASSEMBLY HOUR!!! (A suggested by mutual sufferers) Students demand: Public-speaking requirements for assembly speakers. Cushions on the seats. Automatic checks for long-winded speakers. Advance censorship by a student committee of all assembly speeches. Handy stimulant to keep speakers alive. Pillows for the faculty sleepers, with snoring regulations. Faculty demand: Serving of a cup of coffee before going to assembly. Prohibition of gum chewing—(the uneven rhythm makes the faculty nervous.) Advise students in front-aisle seats to study during assembly hour as well as other students. (The faculty have intimated they realize most people put in the time to good advantage, and do not wish to deprive students in the front-aisle seats of the same privilege.) Lives of football men remind us, We can write our names in blood, And, departing, leave behind us, Half our faces in the mud. NORMAL’S SEVEN WONDERS I wonder if I’ll get a bid? I wonder where he gets his money? I wonder how she can afford such hats? I wonder where he learned to bluff? I wonder if he thinks no one suspects him ? I wonder if she thinks the powder doesn’t show ? I wonder if we’ll have a test tomorrow ? Jftb. l.M lolt in his fr f-de n_ "LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WAIT UNTIL”— Seniors pay their class dues. Juniors arc satisfied with their marks. Prof. Hanna quits riding a bicycle. Clemmons grows up. Torpcy and Thoen have a quarrel. Turner laughs. Shorty Halron loses his smile. HEARD at THE GREASY SPOON: Bill Hoort : There's a fly m my co‘ nnowles YYe'll, don’t get it won't dnnK much. .» Page 197Page 198IT IS RUMORED: That Mr. Hanna is becoming a trifle bald-headed. That Fred Wandrcy no longer has the reputation of being a confirmed bachelor. That Bartlette Xuttrcll has a few brains. That Peg McDermott is an Irish from New Richmond. That Ted Kexcl and Thelma Best have occasional dates. That there has been a little talking in the library of late. That “Dizz” Smith rules the Student Voice staff in a high and mighty manner. That Beach Pearson is a collcgiatc-looking man. That Jack Burke has the makings of an orator. That "Mac" Madison is the Romeo of Colfax. That “Toots” and "Dode” arc good pals. That Irma Berktold has a leaning towards high school basket-ball men. That Mark Morton’s vocabulary contains a few cuss words. That “Fran” Sharar is a shark at calculus. (Ask Pat.) That Lldclla Hull believes that variety is the spice of life. That Elmer Beran is developing a sarcastic “line.” That there is a little time wasted in the Physics lab. That Glen Gallup thinks he is lion among the ladies. That “Moco” is a notorious character around school. That “Gib” Meyer is rather unsophisticated. That Charlie Habcck has become studious. That spring weather is uninspiring to study. That Jack Jennings has developed a case. That Eugene Brown is becoming a uke artist. Lois (to applicant for position on “Voice” staff): “Did you ever read proof?” Willing one: “No, who wrote it?” “WE DON’T HAVE IT HERE” Finals, finals, everywhere. With drops and drops of ink, But never a prof, who’ll leave the room And allow a man to think. We have our mighty football yells And some that sound quite nifty, But the universal Normal yell. Is “O, Dad, wire me fifty." Page WAs a fitting close to the last chapter of our book we wish to thank all those who have in any way helped us in the building of our annual. Whatever success we have achieved we feel that we owe to the hearty co-operation of staff members and all others who have aided us.
