Ames EighteenVALUES IDEAS regarding education change with passing years. Recently we have discarded many of our earlier conceptions as to the purposes of education. We have substituted what we call practical courses for the cultural education of a generation ago. This practical education, so called, is a part of our American materialism. It is difficult for us to conceive of the value of education apart from its material rewards. But what has American materialism accomplished other than to add amazingly to our physical comforts and conveniences? It has not promoted right living; it has not advanced morality. It will he recognized that the stability of our political and social systems are dependent on a trained and disciplined citizenry not so much in the science of making a living but in the art of living itself. Education must be concerned with the larger values in life. It must enlarge the circle of interests, enrich the inner life, and deepen the feeling of civic responsibility. A teacher training institution is dedicated to the service of the children of the state. It is highly important that such an institution should produce men and women whose spiritual natures have been enriched and made fruitful. “The soul is, after all, the thing of supreme and enduring worth.” Any institution which deserves a future must be founded on the principle that education is a social process whose aim is to produce not only useful and law-abiding citizens, but also those whose intellectual horizons have been enlarged, whose range of interests have been increased, and those whose sympathies have been deepened.

For some time the number of students in these courses was not large, and they occupied the rather indefinite position of post graduates as far as school activities were concerned. However, there has been a steady growth from a small group to a well organized class, assuming the leadership of school activities. The Third Year Class of 1926 has seventy-seven members, the largest group as yet to complete the three-year courses. Its history as a class began in September. 1923, when, together with students of other courses, it formed a freshman class of nearly two hundred and fifty. At the outset the class was fortunate in obtaining as class advisor. Miss I .alia, who has contributed to whatever success the class has achieved. Since its organization a high mark of excellence has characterized all its activities. It put on the Prom in 1924, and cooperated with the other classes in giving the Prom of 1925. It published the Mcletean of 1925, and then, in the rearrangement of class activities, assumed responsibility for the annual again, and published the present Meletean of 1926. It presented the class play in 1925, and, together with the Second Year Senior Class, will present the play in June, 1926. In every branch of athletics, in debate, oratory, drama, music, school publications, and in scholarship the class has its representatives. With the sound foundation already laid by Third Year groups, it is certain that the Third Year Classes that follow will perpetuate the spirit of leadership, progress, and service.

The members of the Second Year Senior Class, during their two years at River Falls, have contributed much to the school. With the other members of the Second Year Class, and the active cooperation of their advisor, Mr. Karges, they are at work on the chief project of the Second Year group, the Junior Prom, to be given May 19. Last year they cooperated with the other classes in the All-School Prom. Their names have appeared on the honor roll. They have been especially active in school organizations, many of them serving as presidents of these organizations during the post year. They have taken a prominent part in school activities, athletic, musical, and dramatic. Fifty-OneFifty-TwoMinnie Baardson Baldwin Primary Y. W. C. A., 1, 2. Violet Bates St. Paul, Minn. Primary G. 0.

Hershberger Assistant Coach As a sterling athlete Ted Cox has placed his name among the really great football players of Minnesota. Throughout his college career he proved to be a steady, fighting athlete, who never knew what it meant to give up. Although lie was handicapped hy injuries, he did that which many thought could not he done. “Stop Red Grange." In this Illinois game he broke through the line and got Red so consistently that the brilliant flash was unable to get under way for open running. As a result. Ted. as captain, led his gang forward to a great victory to the tune of twenty to seven. In basketball, Ted won his letter and was one of the reliable men in most of the conference games. In track, Cox and Shutte were the two men upon whom Minnesota depended for their points in the weight events. Letters in three major sports at a large university is the enviable record of our worthy coach. As a coach. Ted lias shown the same sterling qualities. The • prospects for a championship team were not very bright at the beginning of the season. Several letter men were back, but the outstanding need was a line. But Ted knew just how every position in the line should be played, so he began at once to build a line that would uphold the expectations of the backfield veterans. He directed the backfield through the assistant coach in the early season, and then rounded up the whole team for the championship game against Superior. The shutout scon-indicated the stonewall ability of the line, and the large offensive score indicated the fighting attack of the backfield. In basketball our record was not so enviable in games won. but the steady improvement of the team, and the sportsmanship developed in the games lost made it a very successful year. Prospects for another year indicate a higher percentage in the victory column. As a coach and as a man, Ted lias won a place in the hearts of the younger boys and girls, the students, the faculty, and the people of the community. Much of the success of the footbull team was due to the untiring efforts of Professor Hershberger, who acted as assistant coach. Mr. Hershberger came to River Falls with a record of several years as a very successful high school coach. Besides handling the second team. Mr. Hershberger did a great deal of work with all of the backfield men. His industry, loyalty, ami intimate knowledge of the game made him a great help to Coach Cox and an inspiration to the players. Not the least of his services was that of scouting games; lie always brought home the dope in the team lie scouted. One circumstance that makes Mr. Hershberger's work so highly appreciated is that he came here for only one year to take Mr. Hayward's work. If he had been on a permanent appointment, he could not have taken hold with greater enthusiasm. Much is expected of our baseball team under his inspiring leadership.

H'ttklxii'r I ful. r«e- A» Caraie (.Uoiroi) FOOTBALL SEASON—1915 LAST year when our grid heroes finished the season with an unblemished record, it seemed that our greatest anticipations had been realized, and little did we dream that another championship was in store for us so soon. But now when we look back upon the wonderful season we had this year and piece together the bits of football history, we can well understand and realize the reason. Championship teams are made through the efforts of not one man or eleven men, but through the efforts of a whole school, united together in one spirit, a spirit that fosters a determination to fight to the finish even though odds be great. It was just this sort of spirit that kept our team on the top and sent them full of light into every gumc. The same spirit pervaded our ranks last year, and perhaps the glory of the championship in '24 gave added incentive this year. A week before the fall term opened, Coach Cox sent out a call for the veterans in order that an early start might be made. Those who formed the nucleus for this year's team were Captain Matt Nelson, Paulson. Rademacher, Lowell and Lawrence Dawson, Pat Ingli, Quandt, and Heggcn. With the opening of school came a wealth of good material which gave promise for a successful season. Owing to our early game with Eau Claire, intensive practice was necessary, and the men responded nobly. With the able assistance of Mr. Hershberger. Coach Cox soon had a well balanced team under way. a team which stopped every conference foe and tied with the state champions of Minnesota, Macalester. The splendid record, which this team has achieved, will go down in school history as one of the greatest, and it b with pride that we shall remember the State Champions of 1925. Ei'jhUj’FourPaulson Captain-Elect QAPTAIN NELSON, Rade-macher, Ingli, Heggen, Quandt, Syverud, and Brooks played I heir last game for River Falls in the Superior game, and it is with regret that we view the departure of these men. For three year Nelson, Rademacher, Ingli, Heggen, and Quandt have played as regulars for the Red and White, and their line-up has of the tear work has always been a his keen sense of enabling bim to size up a and be ready to Quandt’s speed and ous man, and one feared by all our opponents. Ingli’s work on the line has always been of a stonewall nature. Rady’s clever defensive tactics will long be remembered, and Meggen’s ability to block punts bas put the Falls into position to score on numerous occasions. Quandt have made bim a danger- F.ight'j FiveRIVER FALLS 12.—MACALESTER iz I noli IN the first game of I lie season the Falls met iVlaea I ester and battled them to a 12-12 tic. Although their first game, the Red and White showed wonderful possibilities, the line holding up fine against the haltering of the heavier Macales-tcr backficid. Dawson early in the first half, hut the kick for goal failed. Both teams offered a strong offensive, hut the lines offered too much opposition. Collins and Zainjahn played good hall at the guard positions. Quandt Dawson made the second score for the Falls in the fourth quarter. The wet field slowed up the game somewhat, hut the brand of football which the River Falls team exhibited gave promise of a success- ful season. RIVER FALLS zz—LUTHER o THE Falls tucked another victory under their arm when they shut out the plucky Luther eleven in the game played on a wet field, which caused many fumbles and lowered the score. The Luther team, outplayed and forced to take a defensive stand the whole game, put up a praiseworthy showing. Brooks put over a nice dropkick for the initial score, but the team was unable to make another score until the third quarter when Coach Cox put in his first string, which straightway pro-ceeded to run up a decisive score. Wcnnerherg played a good game in the fullback position. Radkuacher IImxkn Ei'jht'jSixRIVER FALLS 6—EAU CLAIRE o SWINGING into smooth working order, the Falls opened their conference season by downing the strong Eau Claire aggregation 6-0. The locals received their first kick-off, and with seemingly little opposition advanced the hall seventy yards in four straight downs for the first and only touchdown of the game. But on top of this splendid beginning came disaster when Hademacher was lost to the team for good by a broken leg. Helwig took Rady’s place, but he too was forced out, his arm being dislocated early in the second half. The loss of two good ends was a bitter pill to swallow, but Gibson put up an excellent showing at that position, and continued to do so for the rest of the season. Several attempts to score by drop-kicking failed. Eau Claire was unable to work the ball within scoring distance, and the wonderful punting of “Ade" Olson was the only thing which kept the Falls from further scoring. Dawson Hei.wk; Eiyliti SevenRIVER FALLS 3—STOUT o A DROP kick by Gibson in the third quarter spelled defeat for Stout and put joy into the followers of the Red and White. It was the homecoming game of the season and the victory gave River Falls a nice lead in the conference race. Both elevens pul up a hard fight, the line work displaying unusually great strength. Weber showed up strong, breaking up many of Stout's offensive plays. Fcske also played a fine game, and at one time recovered u Stout fumble which put us in a position to score. Gibson at end played a of a game, and it was his edu-toe that won the battle. Jenson RIVER FALLS 9—ST. MARY'S 13 Gibson PLAYING against odds and also one of the strongest lines in the Minnesota College Conference, the Red and White nearly walked off with a prized victory, and only because of an unusually strong comeback was St. Mary's able to best our total of nine points, amassed in the first half. Early in the game Heggcn recovered a St. Mary's fumble under the goal posts and put the ball in a position for a dropkick which Brooks executed. In the same quarter Captain Nelson carried the ball over the line for the other six points. The second quarter found the Falls again within scoring distance, but unable to penetrate the strong defensive St. Mary’s line. Our visitors scored both of their touchdowns the last quarter by well placed forward passes, which the locals were unable to stop. Syvkxud Zamjahn EiyhtyEightRIVER FALLS 7—STEVENS POINT o Til K game a I the Point proved to be more of a kicking duel than anything else, Lowell Dawson getting away with some pretty punts, while Craney, of the opposition made some nice returns, keeping the ball well in neutral territory. The third quarter found the Falls with the upper hand, and by a varied offense of line bucks and a pretty pass from Dawson to Quandt, the champions put over the only touchdown of the game. The try for point was also made, making the score 7-0. Dawson’s kicking and Hcggcn’s defensive work were features of the combat. Jenson at tackle showed unusual offensive ability, and he also did some good defensive work. Brooks Eighty-SincRIVER FALLS 33— SUPERIOR o ITH a championship at stake, and playing their lost game of the season, the fighting Red and White eleven, all primed - for battle, handed Superior a defeat which showed very clearly the superiority which our team possesses over every team in the slate. Matt Nelson led his team-mates out to battle with a spirit that is unquenchable, and the game he played, the on Rainer Field, will Feske be old backed up the line to perfection, and w best of every opportunity. The whole tc of the season against Superior, with « in stellar style. Paulson was a stonewall at center, admirably. “Tarz” continually broke through, Superior team attempted.

Lawrence and Lowell Dawson, Quandt, Gibson, and Zamjahn: with the addition of Syverud, Landis, Jung, Price, and Brooks, work was soon started in earnest. In the first tilt of the season, the Falls dropped a close game at the hands of the St. Thomas quint, frequent fouling enabling the Tommies to outscore us. Against the Hamline aggregation the Red and White found more opposition, and lost by a more decided score. Cleberg starred for the Falls with six baskets to his credit. In the second game with St. Thomas, free throws again spelled defeat, for the locals outplayed their opponents most of the time. Superior came up here alter dropping a game to Stout, and with Peterson back of a good share of her shots, managed to put it over on the Falls. In the next three games our men seemed unable to work into good shooting form, and lost by close margins. In an overtime period. St. Mary's nosed the locals out by a single point, after the Falls had outplayed them the whole game. The game with Stout was a real battle, the Red and White showing that they were a fighting outfit. Stout found victory in the foul called during the last seconds of play. The final score was 23-24, with one point difference at the half also. When Eau Claire started out to chop off another victory, the Falls countered with a display of fight that scattered all her confidence to the winds. Trailing behind in a 14 2 score early in the quarter, when the half ended they were but a point behind. Dahl's uncanny shooting, however, kept Eau Claire in the lead until the final whistle. In both encounters with Stevens Point we found little difficulty in establishing our supremacy, and both games were won by decisive scores. Stout struck a snag in the!i last encounter with the Falls, and only after a stiff battle were they able to clinch their title of State Champions. Xiur Iff-Tiro Quandt is a man who has put in three seasons for the Falls. He will always be remembered for his aggressiveness and excellent guarding. A keen eye for the basket credits him with one and some times several neat ringers in nearly every game, and his ability to work the ball into the enemy’s territory has established him as an important cog in the Red and White machine. Quandt If one were to consider the number of games won and lost in judging the merits of our basketball team and their record, he would fall far short of the true estimate indeed. A glance at the scores alone would show that no game was lost by a very large margin, and that the majority of them were decided by a mere point or two. In the Stout game the Falls showed that they were able to battle on even terms with the State Champions, and winning from St. Mary’s and Stevens Point was no mean accomplishment. We are proud of the fight our men showed in every game they played, and their record will always be held as one, not so much of victories as of the spirit shown in upholding the standards of the Red and White. Beran's clever floor work and his fight-to-thc-finish spirit were responsible for much of the fight the team showed this year. He also proved to be a scoring factor in critical moments. His work in the Stout game will always be remembered. Behan Sindf-ThreeZamjahx carried the same old fight into basketball that he had in football, and because of this he was always a dangerous man for the opponents. His presence at the pivot position kept the team well balanced, and his aggressiveness put him into a position to score many times. Zamie pul Chaska on the map at River Falls. Zamjahx Because of injuries “Gibby” was unable to play in many of the games, but whenever he was in the lineup, we were assured of good brand of basketball from him. He handled the ball well, and played a strong offensive game. Dawsie’s work at guard will always be remembered with respect by the men of other teams, who have played against him. His ability to smother every offensive measure of the opponents in his direction kept the ball out of dangerous territory most of the time, and forced the opposing teams to long shots. Dawson Gibson Ninel ft FourPrice showed this year that he lias the makings of a mighty good man. and with this year's experience he should become an important cog in next year’s team. He is a good shot and plays a scrappy game all the time. We look for big things from him next year. Price This is the first year for JuNC also, and his appearances on the Red and While team have shown that he will, without a doubt, round out into a dandy guard. Clever and tenacious, he is a hard man to work the ball through, and he has shown that he can hold his own in a wholly creditable way. .luxe Collins’ ability to step into the game in a time of need gave him a chance to display his wares, which he did in a creditable fashion. He is a good man both to break up plays and work the ball into a scoring position. He will be with us again next year. Collins Xinely-FiveStanding—Brooks, L. Smith. Paulson. Fogo.

In a strenuous final match Waschatka nosed out Professor May and took first place. In the doubles Verrette and May defeated Hayward and Paul in a closely contested match. In the summer school tournament the honors were taken by the faculty. Professor May defeated Mr. Eggebrecht in the finals. With the new courts available this spring, tennis will undoubtedly rank as one of our leading spring sports. Doubles and singles tournaments for both men and women are being planned. Gallup Ykrrkttk Waschatka yinety-SevenSKATING THIS winter another sport was added to River Falls' illustrious line. This now project, the skating rink, luui seemed almost impossible for some time, but by the intense effort and enthusiasm of the Student Social Committee was at last successfully carried out. The idea was first conceived a few years ago, but given practically no consideration, as most every one was pessimistic about the possibilities of constructing a rink. Then last year the idea came to light again, this time being sponsored by the Student Social Committee. The committee pul aside money for the purpose, hut because a large number of students and faculty believed a skating rink would be unsuccessful, the plan again failed. This year, however, the new Social Committee started out with a determination to complete a rink under any circumstances. They made arrangements for money to be spent, had the city furnish the water and light needed, solicited professional advice, and with the cooperation of Mr. Spriggs, the construction of the rink was soon under way. Most of the work on the rink was done during the holidays and when the students returned from their vaculion, they were very much surprised and at the same time delighted to find it really completed. Plans were then made for a big celebration and when the night came the link was initialed with a bang. The band played, professional fancy skaters performed, stunts were pulled off, and then more than two hundred and fifty skaters joined hands in un all night's good time. From this night on crowds appeared on the rink almost constantly. The rink was constructed primarily in the interest of the students, but it proved to be the playground for practically all the people of River Falls, old and young. On one Sunday afternoon the crowd on the rink numbered around seven hundred people, which goes to show that at was successful. The value of the rink to River Falls is inestimable; it not only offers the opportunity to more people to lake active part in sports, but it also is a great factor in bringing excellent outdoor exercise to the students of the Normal School. The success of the project this year ought to inspire the members of the next year's Social Committee, and with that hope in mind, we feel confident that River Falls will have a lugger and heller skating rink next year. .Xinelt KwhlAlice Hacen Winner of the G.

It aims especially to bring more girls into active participation in athletic.-, and thus develop a sense of fairness and sportsmanship as well as to aid physical development. Any girl is eligible to membership in the G. A. A., but until she has earned one hundred points by becoming a member of an athletic team she is not an active member. The associate members take part in the social affairs of the association, but the active members handle all business. Social events lake place once a month ami are in the form of out-of-door picnics, sleigh rides, lohogganning parties, and stunt parties in the gym. An annual week-end camping trip is held at the Y. M. C. A. camp on Lake St. Croix, where the facilities of the camp accommodate a large number of girls. This feature is very popular, and has come to be one of the big events of the school year. Bktiiixe March Smith One HundredDuring I he year I lie G. A. A. has participated in a mmilier of outside activities sponsored by the school. At Homecoming and Championship celebration , the G. A. A. look an active part in making these events successful. The organization helped to earn money for the purchase of gold footballs for the championship football team. During the Stale Oratorical Contest the girls assisted in the furnishing of hcadipiarters for visiting delegates. The association is very active, with varied interests, thus appealing to many girls. The G. A. A. awards official "IP sweaters to all girls who have earned 600 points during their membership. Points are given for making class teams in any of the major sports of volleyball, basketball, and kittenball. Points are also earned by hiking, skiing, observing rules of personal hygiene, as well as by placing in any of the various Iraek events. A girl must work consistently for two years to earn the sufficient number of points, therefore it is an honor to be the wearer of the red "IP A loving cup is also awarded annually to the girl, who at the end of that year lias to her credit the largest number of points after having won a sweater. Since the organization of the Girls' Athletic Association in 1920. twenty-six girls have won the official “IP sweater. G. A. A.

VOLLEY BALL THE volleyball season opened early in the fall, when about thirty girls reported for practice with Miss Roherty, and later Miss Smith, as coaches. Many of the girls were amateurs, but this did not prevent them from becoming excellent players before the end of the season. Practice was held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and later three teams were chosen for the entire group on the basis of class membership. After some practice, a tournament was run off on two successive afternoons to determine which class team would become the volleyball champions of 1925. The first game between the Freshmen and Sophomores was closely contested, but the final score was in favor of the latter. The winners then played the Seniors for the championship, and were again victorious, winning by a fairly large margin. This was the culmination of the volleyball season, which was very successful, inasmuch as a large number of girls participated and a wider knowledge of the game resulted. One Hundred Tu-oBASKETBALL THIRD YEAR TERM Lois Beers • Stella Pedersen CkCILE KELLY • A MCE Hagen Litiia Gregor • Ei.lkn Burke • Jessie Bolin Forward (Cuptaink Forward Side Coaler Jumping dealer Guard Guard Forwaid (Substitute) BASKETBALL is the favorite sport of a large number of girls, and the season of 1926 proved this most conclusively. The practices were conducted in a similar manner to volleyball practice, with the season ending with a tournament to decide the championship. The early practices consisted mainly in work on the fundamentals of passing, guarding, and shooting, hut later short scrimmages were held at each practice. Strict girls’ rules were observed, and the game was played On a three-court floor which necessitated six players on a team. Several practice games were played with the local high school team. The first game of the tournament was played between the Sophomores and Freshmen, in which only very close guarding on the part of the second years prevented the clever first-year team from winning by a larger margin than they did. The Sophomores met the Seniors for the second game, in which the Seniors won, contrary to all expectations. The rivalry was keen in the final game between the Freshmen and Seniors, with the Freshmen picked to win. However, by clever passing and accurate shooting early in the game, the Seniors established a four-point lead which was maintained throughout. By winning both games, the championship went to the Senior team. One Hundred ThreeOne Hundred FourFORENSICS One Hundred FireRex ford S. Mitchell A LARCH pari of the credit for our outstanding forensic record of this past year is most certainly due to the umiable personality, the practical methods, and the thorough work of Coach Rcxford Mitchell. We have in Coach Mitchell a man who can get the utmost work from the students who are interested in forensics. By his open-mindedness and congenial disposition he gets hold of every member of the squad. The debaters know that he is a “regular fellow,” and if Coach Mitchell makes a suggestion, that suggestion is carried out. Not only does the forensic student get a chance to work with an outstanding personality, but he gets a lot of good practical instruction in correct speech. Coach Mitchell made an enviable record in debate while in Lawrence College, and he demonstrates to us year after year, by the caliber of speakers he turns out, his ability to put across his knowledge of the art of speuking. Rather than thrust upon the orator a special style of delivery, the “dean” helps each one to develop and strengthen the style for which he is best suited. This up-to-the-minute style of training is most valuable to future men of all airs. The most helpful asset a debate team cun possibly have is a couch who knows the question to be discussed. Coach Mitchell thoroughly studied and had in mind the child lubor situation, and he made use of what he knew. When our debaters got a new child labor remedy or evil into -their heads und started off on a tangent, the conch was ever alert to get them back on the right truck. Me could argue on either side of the child labor question so effectively that it was hard in either case to disagree with him. The debaters were continually kept busy digging up figures, or reasoning out cases, in order that they might intelligently discuss the child labor problems with the coach. One Hundred SixBurke Norsenc EXTEMPORANEOUS SPEAKING AND ORATORY THE annual inter-normal oratorical and extemporaneous speaking contests were held at River Falls this year. On March 19th we had as our guests some one hundred and fifty visitors from our islor normal schools. Eau Claire led with a delegation of seventy, including two glee club , an orchestra, and two quartettes. The day began with a pep and stunt program in the morning followed by a luncheon for all our visitors in (he cafeteria at noon. In the afternoon occurred the extemporaneous speaking contest followed by a dance in North Hall gym. The oratorical contest took place in the evening, being preceded by a concert by some of the visiting musical organizations. Students and faculty alike entered into the spirit of the occasion and did their best to make our guests feel at home. Our representatives in the contests performed well before the home audience, Marshall Norscng winning first place in extempore speaking, and John Burke placing second in oratory. The topic for extempore speaking was “The Need for a Re-Alignment of Political Parties in the United States." Marshall's victory was clean cut, as he received first rank from each of the three expert judges. The judges for both contests were Professors Barnes and Weaver of the Public Speaking Department of the University of Wisconsin, and Professor Franzke, Head of the Department of Public Speaking ul Lawrence College. Donald Vetter of Stevens Point placed second, and Donald Gleason of Oshkosh third. Alvin Churchill of Superior won the oratorical with an oration entitled "The Moral Courage of the Frontier," while John Burke finished a close second with his oration 'The Rising Tide of Lawlessness." William Gavin of Eau Claire won third with "Visions and Ideals" as his topic. Mr. Norscng was also a successful contestant in the inter-state contest. He was awarded first honors at Macomb, Illinois, by a unanimous decision of the judges. It is significant that many of the contestants at this extempore contest represented institutions which have four-year courses. This has been a most successful yeur in forensics—a first in extemporaneous speaking, a second in oratory, and a state championship in debate is a record that future representatives of the school in forensics may well strive to equal. Ilnr IImillrrit NrrrnDEBATE THIS has been an outstanding year in debate. The schedules included more debates than ever before; our teams took part in thirteen no decision and four decision debates. The debates were exceptionally well attended and enthusiastically supported by the student body. We went through the season without losing a decision and we won our second state championship in five years. The tryouts were held early in November. It was decided that this year the squad should consist of fifteen instead of twelve members. Four of last year’s squad were back, namely, John Burke, Rollie Williams, Fred Wandrcy, and Frances Lethlean. The judges selected the following eleven to complete the group: John Davison, Marshall Norseng, Robert Smith, Donald Olson, Bernard Morton, Harold Walton, Thomas Barry, Scott Canney, James Casey, George Wilson, and Theodore Goble. The question selected for discussion was, “The Adoption of the Proposed Twentieth Amendment Empowering Congress to Regulate Child Labor.” After a series of intra-squad debates a series of no decision practice debates were held with the Hammond, New Richmond, and River Falls high school teams; all the members of the squad participated in these debates. Then followed a series of no decision debates with two Minnesota colleges, St. Thomas and Hnmiinc. At the close of this scries the teams that were to compete in the conference decision debates were selcctd. Marshall Norseng, Bernard Morton, and Robert Smith made up the affirmative team with Donald Olson and Frances Lethlean as alternates, while John Davison, John Burke, and Fred Wandrcy were selected as a negative team with Harold Walton and Thomas Barry as alternates. The remainder of the squad were organized into second teams. The first conference debates occurred March 5. Our affirmative met Eau Claire here, while our negative journeyed to Superior. On their way to Superior, our negative stopped off at Cumberland to meet the Cumberland high school affirmative in a no decision practice debate. Incidentally the Cumberland teams later won the state championship. Both of our teams emerged victorious in their first encounters; our victories gave us the northern championship and the right to compete in the state championship debates. The state championship debates were held March 30. Platteville, winner in the southern triangle, withdrew and the debate became a dual one with Stevens Point. Again our teams succeeded in winning both debates. Our negative defeated the strong Point affirmative in a very hotly contested debate on the home platform, while our affirmative walked away with a 100-87 decision at the Point. Thus our teams went through the season without suffering a defeat and River Falls became the first school to win two state championships in debate. (The first state championship debate was held in 1922 and won by River Falls). The winning of the championship was properly celebrated upon the return of the affirmative team. This year's teams probably rank as the best that have ever represented the institution. All did exceptionally good work, but John Burke and Marshall Norseng, the two closing speakers, deserve special mention. Eleven of the members of this years squad plan to return next year; only Wandrey, Burke, Lethlean, and Williams will be lost by graduation. While the loss of these four will be keenly felt, eleven experienced debaters should prove a strong nucleus for next year’s squad.

'22 One Hundred TenMUSIC One Hundred ElevenTHE YEAR IN MUSIC AMERICAN education demands the culture of music, and .it is the aim, with the co-operation of the students, to make the Music Do par I men I of the River Falls Normal a “service station” for the musical life of the adjoining rural communities as well as to serve the Normal proper. Many rural districts have been visited this year in the way of furnishing musical programs for the schools and meetings of various Parent-Teacher Associations. Many improvements and additions have been made in the Department of Music, and students attending the Normal have unexcelled opportunities for the study of singing and voice culture, piano, organ, violin, cello and band instruments. Classes in history of music, harmony, and public school music have been formed and have interested a great many students in this line of study. The Department of Music is responsible for seven musical organizations, which include the men’s glee club, girls’ glee club, girls’ trio, string trio, orchestra, band, and mixed chorus, any one of them being capable of fine performances. Besides these organizations the members of the music faculty present many programs throughout the year both at home and abroad. We cannot tell how much the future holds in store for the Department of Music, but when we consider the fact that nearly three hundred members of the present student body arc interested in some form of music study or activity, we prophesy that within the next few years rapid strides will be made which will tend to strengthen further the present fine curriculum of the institution.

Despite its recent organization it has appeared more frequently during the past year than any other musical group, proving thereby that its services are indispensable. The origin of the band is the outcome of the Homecoming celebration in the fall. At that time the need for such an organization within the school itself was felt and a group of enthusiastic members responded to the call for volunteers. So successful was the first attempt that it was agreed that the band should become a permanent institution. Within a few weeks two of the leading organizations on the campus, the G. 0. P. and the Agrifallians, pledged their support to the band and set to work to provide uniforms, earning the money in various ways. On February 9 the band gave its first formal concert in uniform. It was a splendid success both musically and financially, and we felt that at last our band was established. It will doubtless do much in the future to create a loyal, enthusiastic school spirit and so fulfill its primary purpose.

The orchestra has performed at many programs and special occasions, and has proved itself a capable and necessary factor in the musical activities of the school. One Hundred SixteenDRAMA One Hundred SeventeenTHE YEAR IN DRAMATICS THE work in dramatics this year has been unusually interesting. For class room work the drama class produced three plays, The Rivals, She Sloops to Conquer, Twelfth Night, as well as scenes from Much Ado About Nothing. For an assembly program, given January 7, six members of the drama class presented a one act play, Our Aunt from California. Doris Frcdcrickson, a member of the class, wrote an A. B. C. Playlette. which was so popular that it was repeated muny limes for nearby community gatherings. During the fall three one act plays, The Ruling Class. Action, What They Think, were given for the benefit of the Athletic Association. On the ninth of April, twelve students under the direction of Miss Schlosser staged Polly With a Past, by Middleton and Dolton. This play, given for the benefit of the Agrifallian Society, was so thoroughly enjoyed that it was repeated, April 16. 'file try-out is in progress for the senior class play, which is to be given Monday of Commencement Week. The play will probably be chosen from one of the following: To the Ladies, Daddy Long-Legs, Only 38.

Latta Co-worker and Friend of Class and Staff One Hundred Thirty-TwoTHE MELETEAN WITH ihe publication of the 1926 Meletcan we are issuing the fifteenth volume of the school annual. The first volume was brought out by the Cla . of 1912. Mis Jennie Wiescnthal was editor-in-chief; Robert Moser, now superintendent of schools at Cumberland. was busines manager; and Homer ElertMin. now of Try on. North Carolina, one of the art editors. It is interesting to note Mr. Elertson's progress in the field of art. During the past winter he has given three exhibition of his paintings: one of a group of forty-three canvasses in Albany, a second exhibition of the same group in Washington, and an exhibition of four of bis largest pictures in Brooklyn. The annual was given its name by Harvey Fletcher, one of the athletic editors. Harvey Fletcher luter gave Ins life in the service as a reconnaissance officer in France. A weekly paper, the Badger, bud formerly been published by the school, and the year hook was in a way an outgrowth of this. However, the staff did not wish to keep the name, since it was that of the unnuul published ut the University of Wisconsin, so the I.ulin word for badger, and the scientific name of the Kuropcun badger—melcs—was chosen, und from it was formed—Mclctcan. As the life of the school lias broadened, und new activities und organization have developed, the Meletcan has kept pace in its growth. In 1919 tho first student directory was issued os a private busine-s enterprise by a student of the school. The next year the NJeleteun. recognizing the desirability of issuing a directory as a school publication, look over this work, and transferred the advertising material from the annual to the directory. Since then no advertising material has appeared in the annual. This is a most desirable feature and one sought by all annual builders, but rarely attained because of the financial necessity of making the advertising pay in part for the book. The Meletcan staffs are to lie complimented for their successful solution of the problem of eliminating advertising material from the book, and at the same time gaining the financial assistance that it brings. The Student Directory has also grown until it is a complete handbook of school information, the compiling and publishing of which is no small tusk and might well be the work of a separate staff, but lias always been carried on by the unnuul staff in addition to its other work. The present year book is the first to be issued by the Third Yeur Glass. In the readjustment of class activities it became necessary for one class to issue the book two year in succession, and that has been the work of the Cla of 1926. With one exception, however, there has been no duplication of members of the two staffs. The 1926 Mclctcan is a true school product. The theme of the book is one closely related to the institution—the greater school of the future a expressed in the service of the teacher. The art motif and design have been taken from those found on the campus and familiar to every student. The art work, from the cover design to the las: cartoon, has been the work of students. It b hoped that the book b a true cxprc i»n of the spirit and individuality of the River Falls Normal School, and that it will mean to you— «ur School."

Nelson THE Student Voice is a weekly publication, appearing on the campus each Wednesday of the school year. The staff has attempted to give interesting and accurate accounts of campus activities, as well as to report the doings of faculty and student body. Two special editions were issued during the year, the first featuring our Slate Championship in Football, the second our success in the State Oratorical Contest and our State Championship Debate Teams. To give the students of the neighboring high schools some idea of college life at River Falls, 1,800 of each of these editions were printed and sent out to them. On the whole, comments would indicate that the year has been a very successful one for the Student Voice.

Its duty is to provide entertainment for the student body. The matinee and evening dances that have been given during the year are the result of the efforts of this committee. But it is the construction of the skating rink that should really bring to us the realization that the Social Committee is alive to the interests of the students. This new project was the special contribution of this year's committee to the usual social activities of the school. In the further interest of the students the committee is proposing an all school picnic to be given in late spring. It believes that such an event is the desire of the graduating seniors especially, ns this will give them at least one more opportunity to hove a rollicking good time. It is the hope of the present committee that future members will still further increase the number of real social activities for the normal school students.

A series of student-led discussions was carried on as a joint project of the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A., wherein the students discussed such problems as: “Where do we need new standards?”, “How honest shall we be?”, and “Correct social relationships between men and women.” A measure of the success of the discussion groups was due, we feel, to the help gained from the Minnesota Student Conference in the spring of 1925, where the Y. W. C. A. had eight representatives, and from the Student Conference at Northfield, Minnesota, at which nine River Falls students were present. Such leaders as Bruce Curry, Sherwood Eddy, Henry Van Dusen, Margaret QuayTc, and Frances Williams have brought much to the lives of the people attending the conferences, which has helped to make our organization vital on the campus. The spirit of service was manifest at Christmas, when the organization, under the leadership of the Social Service Committee with Mrs. A. N. Johnson as advisor, filled Christinas boxes which were sent to a community in northern Wisconsin. We have learned that these boxes furnished the only Christmas cheer these people knew this year. The girls in the Y. W. C. A. have taken an active part in all phases of the work, especially in the weekly meetings. Thus they have come into closer fellowship with one another while endeavoring together to live Jesus’ law of love on our campus.

Winenkomy WE feel that during the past year or two we have been unusually favored at River Falls. Through conventions and conferences it has been the privilege of many of our men to come into intimate contact with such men as Sherwood Eddy. Pitt VanDusen, Bruce Curry, Stitt Wilson, Glenn Clark, Kirby Page, and many others of national and international reputation. Conferences of the type that we attended at the University of Minnesota last spring, at Lake Geneva in June, at North field in November, not to mention our own sessions with Sherwood Eddy and G. ' • Aldrich, have left an impression on our lives that is beginning to express itself in action. During the past year the usual weekly meetings have been held. In the main the program at these meetings has consisted of a student-led devotional service followed by a purposeful address by members of the faculty or by prominent students or by outside talent. One prominent feature of this year’s program has been our joint meetings and discussions with the other Christian organizations. Our group discussions on problems vital to men and women on the campus have stirred our thinking more perhaps than we arc willing to admit. The opening joint mixer in September and the annual stag party in February were unusually successful. The weekly prayer service on Tuesday morning has been a source of power. It is of interest to point out that of the five men in the cabinet of last year who were graduated last June four at present are devoting their entire time to Y. M. C. A. work, while the fifth is doing a fine bit of volunteer work with the Ili-Y group. There is some satisfaction in realizing that the activities that we are trying to promote here are giving men a vision that places service to God and man at a high level.

Its purpose is to help the members mentally, socially, and religiously. The fifty members are among the most influential of the student body. They are active in all the interscholastic activities, besides having an enviable record in inter-organization athletics. The guiding influence of our faculty advisor, Mr. Glen P. Junkman, is a great asset to the organization. Rev. Father Fassbender has increased the success of the society, not only by making possible many parties in the church parlors, but also by giving a course in apologetics during the season of Lent.

It is the oldest men’s organization in the school and has a membership larger than that of any other literary society. The purpose of this organization is to stimulate and promote interest in the various phases of agriculture, and to give its members training in debating, public speaking, and parliamentary practice. Meetings are held every other week, and interesting programs are rendered by members of the society. On many occasions outside speakers and educational films are obtained by the society. The programs deal not only with the practical side of agriculture, but also with social activities, which relieve the monotony of farm life. One of the big events of the year is the initiation of the freshman members. Every fall the society holds a Poultry and Grain Show, at which the farmers and townspeople of the surrounding communities compete for prizes. Last fall between six and seven hundred birds were entered, which is an increase of over twenty-five per cent over the preceding years. Likewise, the crop exhibit showed an increase of nearly fifty per cent. This goes to show that a greater interest is being taken in agricultural activities. Another feature is the Annual Stock Show which is held in the spring. This show was started fourteen years ago, and the number and quality of the animals shown compare well with the exhibits at the best county fairs. The outstanding event of the year for the students is the Agricultural Field Day. on which students give demonstrations and educational exhibits, teaching important farm facts. Stock fitting, marketing, and judging demonstrations prepare the men who lake part in this work to handle and meet conditions in their teaching and community work. After the field day the Annual Agrifallian Banquet is held, for which several outside speakers arc obtained. At the banquet Field Day activities are promoted, and also the places are awarded to those winning in exhibit and demonstration work. This year we inaugurated a High School Stock and Grain Judging Contest. Three high schools took part. Bruce High School won first place, being coached by William Wickclman, a former president of the Agrifallian Society. The boys and their coach were entertained by the school. One of the most important events of the year was the staging of the play. "Polly with a Past,” the proceeds of which were used to finance the Grain and Poultry Show, which is entirely managed by the members of the society. This year suits for the band were purchased through the efforts of the G. 0. P. and the Agrifallian Societies. The future of this organization looks very promising indeed. We are confident that it will continue in the future, as it has in the past, to maintain the ideals and standards lhut have thus far been advanced toward the betterment of agricultural education in this institution.

A motley group, to say the least, And yet I sensed in purl A friendly sort of fellowship That warmed and cheered my heart. Twas registration day, of course, And to us older fry The hard-earned dough which needs must Departed with a sigh. But not so with our younger friends, Who had but reached the mill; They cheerfully dished out their cash And even got a thrill. Oh, youth, if thou couldst only sec The things that lie ahead, How different would thy actions he! How small would be thy head! Those early days that soon must pass— The joy, the grief, the gloom. The frantic efforts of the youth Who finds in vain his room. The first few days pass rapidly. But then to shunt our joys Come pangs of aching homesickness To many girls and boys. Life’s journey here is stony, rough. And hearts must be like chrome To bear the pain, forget the train That waits to take us home. From serious to frivolous We start the year out right By meeting all the other folks At North Hall Friday night. A mixer full of pep and stunts That makes us feel at home And leaves us with ti lighter heart And sweet thoughts in our dome. Remember the third-year parly. The classy music heard. When the Junkman-Whitenack duo The harps of heaven stirred. One Tlundred Slxtp-FovrWe all remember vividly Our fighting football crew And what a record they achieved— Just what we knew they'd do. They tied up with Macalester, Champs of our sister state. And Luther bowed to our attack; Theirs was a sadder fate. And then Homecoming day arrived, Clean full of autumn zest; A day on which the Red and White Must meet another test. 1 The morning parade was peppy, Its spirit filled the air And gave the team the extra steam Which put Stout in despair. We battled Eau Claire and heat them And left them in chagrin; Although we lost old “Rady", His spirit helped us win. St. Mary’s game we hold with pride; They found we're quite a joint. The next week we surged farther on By cleaning up the Point. Now mind you, friends, with every game More hacking was the cry, And old Superior in dismay Found out the reason why. Three times eleven was our score, Superior's score was naught. We spent the next days to extol What our champions had wrought. Now we must needs seek other lines Of many other different kinds. From Ramer Field to other things That any busy Normal brings. The Grain and Poultry Show was held Some time back in December; Its closeness to our different rooms Helps us to well remember. Then basketball broke into light And furious games ensued. St. Thomas nosed us out by points And Hamlinc heal us too. One Hundred Sixty-FiveSi. Maty's beat us by a point— Our men were far the best— And when Si. Mary's came up here— Oh, well, you know the rest. Then Christina came at last. Balm for aches long endured. No tales of "what I did ai school" Can longer be deferred. Hut in vacation days, it seems. The time Hies far loo fast. And back to learning’s open door-Our footsteps lead al last. To folks of different lines of sporl A welcome thing. I think. Through efforts of the Normal school We had a skating rink. Right here let us put in a word To praise our worthy band. They gave us lots of peppiness. When pep was in demand. Tito mtisicalr they gave was fine: Tito hand looked mighty slick; And credit we must surely give To her who wields the slick. We can’t forgel the vuudcville; It sure was lots of fun; The singing and the dancing Were worth another run. An’ hr udder, you rememba Dat minstrel show oh ours. Dent jokes and classy singin’; Dcy sho' deserves de flowers. March was u month of action. Besides the minstrel show There came the high school tournament. As well you all must know. And lest excitement dull our minds, Thus lead our thoughts astray. The thoughtful brains with careful pains Gave us exams each day. Exams! ah me, pray let me sigh. But I dare no retort. For I am hut a will-be grad And life is very short. One Hundred Stxlv-SirI he OvuTortf Be While in this reminiscent mood. Our memory brightly gleams; The shade of Clay would doff its hat To our debating teams. And, too, we vividly recall The oratory bee, When from each Normal school there came A group well filled with glee. They came out strong against Eau Claire. Superior was their meat. And then to cap the climax The whole state they did beat. Each school brought something musical-Whate’er they had at hand— Some brought a glee club full of pep, And others brought a band. Then Marshall brought the bacon home, And after him Burke came. It certainly made us feel proud To bag this noble game. The balmy days of spring arrived. The fever got us all; The signs were very evident In every nook and hall. Seniors began to think of jobs; The world seemed to call us; Commencement loomed not far away-Dcparturc from this campus. Fond memories of River Falls, In our minds'll e'er he fixed. And in high place among them all The year Twenty-five and Six. Ml H. ■ ' -fs-V .
