The successful functioning of this school is due to the efforts of this department to co-ordinate the work of the various units. Since its beginning fifty-four years ago, the school has continually expanded in resources and increased in service until this year it has become a Teachers College, regularly organized on a degree granting basis. The fostering of this growth has ever been the policy of those directing the work of the school. SeventeenRecent P. W. Ramer EighteeniSoarb of ftegentd OFFICERS Edward J. Dempsey -Edgar G.

Ames Twenty 3DEALISM is a priceless virtue; it is an attribute of youth. We must look to the students in our institutions of learning today to keep alive our idealism and to foster those sentiments of honor and loyalty, without which our free institutions cannot endure. American schools and colleges arc the best training grounds for citizenship. The American student entertains a high type of loyalty for his institution. This is one of the splendid things connected with student life. It is a splendid thing for these institutions to have the enthusiastic loyalty of these young men and women, but the chief significance of the kindling of these sentiments lies in the profound influence upon the lives of the students themselves. It is to be hoped that the River Falls Teachers College, its student body and faculty, will always endeavor to create an institutional atmosphere, in which all the higher qualities of citizenship may develop and flourish. Education is consecrated to the betterment of mankind, not to the training of a few selected leaders. In a democracy it is highly important that this fundamental conception be kept clear. No more serious mistake could be made than that our institutions of higher learning be organized and administered in the interest of the select. Education in our country must have as its objective, the improvement of the intellectual and ethical perspective of the great mass of our citizens. We do not need holders of worlds records; we do need the intellectual and ethical elevation of all. bf • . Ticc tn-OncJohn M. May Ticenlv-Two3£%R0FESS0R J. M. MAY came to our school in 1913 as an assistant in the Do partment of Agriculture, which had been started the previous year by Mr. Wells, who was then head of the department. Mr. May is a member of the gradu-ating class of 1910 of the Kansas State Agricultural College at Manhattan. During recent years he has been working for his master's degree at Cornell University. He is a member of Alpha Zeta, an honorary agriculture fraternity, and also the Cornell chapter of Phi Delta Kappa, a national education fraternity. Because of the decided success of Mr. May as a teacher in Nebraska and Minne-sota high schools, Mr. Crabtree, who was president of this school, selected him to come to River Falls as an instructor. Mr. Crabtree made both a wise and a fortunate choice when he chose this man for the position here, as has been evidenced by the progress and development of the Agricultural Department at River Falls since 1913. The department was moved, after lie Imd been here only one year, from the third floor of South Mall into the rooms of North Hall which are so familiar to all of us. It gained prominence at River Falls and recognition throughout this state. In 1918, five years after coming here, lie was rewarded for his devotion to the school and his constructive work by being made head of the department, whose expansion he had fostered. As we compare the two-year course of 1918 with the four-year degree granting course now offered, and the department of a few years ago with the present, which occupies a dozen very well equipped rooms in North Hall, we more thoroughly realize and appreciate the man who stands at the head of that progress. This year, through the combined efforts of the faculty of the department and President Ames, River Falls has been recognized by the State Board of Vocational Education as an institution qualified to train teachers for Smith-Hughes Agriculture Departments. Our school is now one of the two schools in the United States, other than universities, having this recognition. Because of his personal interest in the welfare of the men of his department, Mr. May succeeded in having a Smith-Hughes Agriculture Department made a pari of the River Falls High School. This make actual contact with that type of a department possible for the men of his department while they are at college. They do practice teaching in the regular agriculture classes of a Smith-Hughe School. They carry farm practice projects, supervise project work of high school boys, coach demonstration teams, and become familiar with the organization and methods of conducting a part-time school, in addition to their regular teacher training. Not only has Mr. May worked for the best interests of his department, but he has been an outstanding general asset to the school. His ability as a teacher has raised the standards of River Falls, and his intelligent guidance has contributed largely to the development of our school. The third-year class greatly appreciates the guidance and advice of Mr. May during our years here. We feel especially fortunate in having had him as our advisor, and we like him as advisor, as teacher, as man, and as friend. Rexford S. Mitchell A. M. University of Chicago Civics amt Public Speaking Dean of Men Irma Hatiiorn A. M. Touchers College, Columbia University Dean of Women aS we look back upon this school year I am sure we all feel bas been a good one. It has been our first as a Teachers College; our first in the new building. There has been a splendid spirit of co-operation and a fine atmosphere of friendliness at all times. We have won no state championships, hut our representatives in intercollegiate competition have always been near the top. We have had a good time, but huve not neglected our work. It has been an enjoyable, a profitable, a worthwhile year. I am glad to have hud a part in this year's activities. I am sorry that they are drawing to a close. I regret that I shall not be with you next year; I wish you all happiness and success. gif'll IS teacher-training institution, with its newly-acquired title vtU of Teachers College, is feeling the responsibility of living up to the prestige and the standards that belong to its new rank as a college. Perhaps the greatest test of the value of the training given in a Teachers College is the type of young person, be it young man or young woman, which the institution sends into the teaching field year after vear. Scholastic ability and skill in the classroom are not all that is needed to qualify one as a teacher. At a time when social conventions and standards of conduct are rapidly changing, it take clear thinking, strong conviction and high ideals on the part of young people to direct their living in a way that will bring credit to themselves and their institution as well as to give satisfaction to the community in which they expect to work. Most thinking people believe heartily in the modern ideas of freedom and self-expression, provided an understanding of the true ntcuning of liberty is coupled with this demand for freedom. A democracy places much responsibility for self-direction and self-control upon the individual. Young people of today who have had the advantages of institutions of higher learning arc qualified to carry with them, into their work, the teachings and ideals of their institution. To the graduates of the classes of 1928, go best wishes for their success and unbounded faith in their uhilily to live and to work true to their highest ideals. Tteenty-FoirE. J. Prucha B. S.

A. Karges iO V I I Thirty-Four)t Senior Class Htf’OH I lie first time in our history u fourth year graduating class appears in the mV pages of the Me!elean. The graduation of this class marks the beginning of an era in the history of the River Fulls State Teachers College. The member of this group will occupy a position comparable to that of the first graduating class in 1879. With the granting of degrees to these first candidates, our school lakes it rightful place among the Teacher Colleges of the country'. Nine year ago the Meletean. for the first time, contained a small section listing five student a Seniors in the three year course. With each passing year this class grew in numbers and importance. Two year ago this group had become o large and exercised so commanding an influence that it was given the active business and financial management of the Meletean. No one who has observed this growth and development can doubt that within a very few year the Seniors of the four year course will be u numerous and important group in our college. The same influence that led to the rapid growth of the three year department cl our school will permeate the growth of the four ycur courses. Chief among these influence is the demnnd for adequate training of high school teacher . Ten years ago Normul School graduates of good scholarship and personality were elected to high school positions after two years of training. Today the three year courses are regarded everywhere a only a passing phase of preparation for high school teaching. Each year the demand is becoming more insistent for complete training in a full four year course. For several year it ha been evident that the Normal Schools must offer a four year course or leave the field of high school teaching to others. Under the leadership of Senator Hunt the legislature of 1926 authorized the Normal Schools to grant degrees and changed their official designation to State Teachers Colleges. The River Falls school did not rush precipitately into this field. The school adminiRlration held that the future of the school and the best interests of its alumni domunded that quality of work and not number of degrees granted be the criterion in this new field. In some purls of the State it was feared that candidate for degrees in the State Teacher Colleges would be largely those who had failed in teaching or those who feared the requirement- of the University. Such has not been the case at River Fall . The present cla»» is composed of strong student and successful teachers. Its member have realised that merely attending school another year could not be made the basis of granting a degree. They have been not only willing but zealous to take the most advanced senior collrgr subject offered in their held. Without exception, the scholastic record made by tlir-e -eniors during their fourth year has been the best of their course. Under the leader-hip of President John Burke, they have upheld the finest traditions of the school in both academic work and in outside activities.. That the River Falls Teachers College will find its first class of four year graduates a credit and a support to the institution is the confident expectation of their class advisor.

It was i in this metropolis that he first won renown as a speaker. In the summer of 1923 Burke was given his high school diploma. Marquette University was his first step toward a higher education. Because this school was loo small to allow John to display his talents, he moved to River Falls. Here he was soon recognised as u man with great ability. Ilia work in forensics, agriculture, and in school organizations placed him as n lender in his class and in the school. After finishing the three year course, lie decided to teach school. During his year of leaching at Belleville. Wisconsin, he became so homesick for River Falls that he decided to come hack to his Alina Mater.

Liking the town and not wishing to leave the shadow of her ancestral home, she decided to attend the local teachers college. Here she became very active in school organizations and classes. She has been taking the high school course and intends to be a teacher of English. Her ability to apply herself and to pull down u good grade certainly ranks her among the foremost students of her class.

If, however, he is a typical Stanley young man, then that town is to be envied. After earning for himself high honors and a host of friends in the Stanley High School, he came to River Falls. He was scientifically bent and took the three year Science and Principals course. After finishing his three years of hard work, he secured the principalship of the Sheldon Stale Graded and Junior High Schools. He very ably handled that Eit ion for two years, and this year came back to his Alma Mater for his degree in Science. ile he has been with u» hr has made a fine showing. He has ranked well up in his studies; he has been a worker in the N. C.

Perhaps the biggest statement that can be made of any man is. "those of us who know him best like him most.” We can certainly say this of Gruber. His ready smile will always be his asset.

Her year in the .Minnesota College was not to her liking, so she decided to try a Wisconsin Teachers College. Stevens Point was her first choice. Here she graduated from the three vear science course. Her next step was to teach a few years in a Wisconsin school. After this she decided to gel a degree. Her aim was to prepare herself to leach biological science in a Smith. Hughes High School and. as she could do this at River Falls, she came here. Also. Alice says, while at Stevens Point she acquired great respect for the Falls, because we always beat the Point. She fell that -lie wanted to be on the winning side one year at least.

His line is agriculture, but nevertheless he is able to outshine most of the history and economics students in school. He was brought up in the quiet, peaceful college atmosphere of River rails.

While here he has been a very good student and has excelled in ability to get "A's." lie has been a very active member of the Agrifullian and the Y. M. C. A.

This fact has made evident that he not only has ability to do his stuff in the class room, but can equally well do it in actual practice.

Here she went to the grammar school and high school After two years of work at the Normal, she became discontented, and wanted to see what other schools were like, so she went to the University of Iowa. Edith liked the University, but her love for River Falls was greater. She knew that the old Normal was the ideal place to be. Because of thi she came back to be among the first degree students to graduate from this school.

Knowing the sterling qualities of the Teachers College, and realizing its possibilities, he immediately entered that institution and graduated from the two year course. Last year he returned and is now finishing the degree course. Red's long suit was music, so he joined the band and the glee club. Furthermore he is able to maul a mandolin around and give pretty fair exhibitions on it. Thi» fact he has more than proved in the school vaudevilles, in which he has taken part each of• his four years here. Red goes out as a teacher of history and social science.

Vice President • Thomas Barry Portia Hill Secretary Helen Hughes Floyd Mullendore Treasurer Donald Olson Faculty Advisor - Mr. May Forty-Four)t Junior Class hTHE Junior Class is a group made up of those students who are completing one of the three year courses for high school teachers and supervisors. This class begun its career in the IIIvor Falls Teachers College with about one hundred ninety students, but as a graduating class now there aic about fifty-two students. Many of the students that entered ns freshmen in 1925 have graduated from a one or two year course, which makes the present third year class smaller in number than the first or second year groups. As a large group the class began its career under the able guidance of Mr. May. During the freshman year it was rather difficult to produce many outstanding people, due to the fact that the upper classmen have the preference. However, to say that the year of 1925 was not prosperous for this group would not lie just. In public speaking proliably there was a larger representation than in any other activity, because four of the six debaters were chosen from this group, as well as the stale champion and interstate champion in extempore speech—Marshall Norseng. The football, basketball, and other athletic teams secured their share of plavrs. In order to prepare the various celebrations of the year, the freshmen gave their loyal support and efforts to make them a success. It was during the second year that the six debaters. John Davison, Marshall Norseng. Roliert Smith, Thomas Harry, Bernard Morton, and Donuld Olson, were the members of the stale championship team. Again Marshall Norseng distinguished himself by winning first pluce in the Stale Oratorical Contest and second in the Interstate Contest-With James I.andis us chairman of the prom committee, the prom of 1927 was considered a very great success. Among our members who are interested in dramatics, and are seen in the staging of the plays are the debaters and Velma Dunn. This group is musically inclined, with Herbert Chapman in the boys' quartette and Vivian Vassau in the girls' quartette. It was during this year that the school was exceptionally fortunate in gaining practically every championship in which there were any contestants. The class of 1928 can take much pride, because it was represented in the various contests and did much to cooperate in celebrating the victories. Two years had pa -d since the group entered as freshmen with no record, but as the third year went on the achievements were both marked and numerous. Although the first two years were extremely successful, it is during the third year that the most important events lake place. Forensics again have practically the same representatives. It is a privilege to have the captain of the football team. Kurt Wcnnrrberg. as a member of our class as well a Karl Weber. Flovd Mullendore. and Truman Glass, who played on the football team for three years. The two members of the basketball team from our number were Clayton Case and James Landis. The Melelran of 1928 is published by the class of 1928 with Vic Peterson as Editor-in-Chief and Marshall Norseng. Business Manager. The class play will be presented by members of this group together with the cooperation of the second year class. The scholastic standing of the Junior Class is very high, as shown by the large number of names on the honor roll during the three years. This group has never failed to respond to any call for cooperation in the progress of the school. • ForUj-Fi reDonald Bannister - - Glenwood City Science and Mechanics Milwaukee Stale Teachers College 1; Y.

In their second year, with the assistance of a very capable advisor. Mr. C. G. Stratton, and presidents. I.vie Lamphere and William Hunt, the class carried out its main project lor the year, the annual Junior Promenade, besides the participation on the part of individuals in the extra-curricular activities. George White, the Prom Chairman, with the assistance of Lyle Lamphere. Gerald Manion. Vivian Chlnnock. and Mable Thorpe, and other members of the class, put on a very unusual and successful dance in which the modernistic idea was carried out to the most minute detail. As individuals, the members of the second year class have made exceptionally good records in athletics, music, and in the leadership of college organizations. The athletic record of this class has been exceptional; of the eighteen letlcrmcn in football, twelve were members of the second year class. They were captain-elect Gerald Manion, Norbert Manion. Herman Hagrstad. William Hunt. Raphael Farrell. Le Roy Luberg. Frank Standish, Wendell Claflin. Max Klrmper, John MacDonald, and Olaf Jenson. Raymond Bliss was captain of the basketball team, which was made up of six sophomores, namely: Gerald Manion. William Hunt, Harold Segerstrom. Frank Standish. and Norbert Manion. who was elected captain for 1928-29. The base ball captain, Wendell Claflin. was also a second year man. In his team were six fellow-classmen. William Biss. John MacDonald, Norman Kahl, Raymond O'Malley, Gerald Manion, and Leo Schnur. Music was another activity in which this class excelled. Eleanor Borncr. Charles Consclnian. Hoyt Johnson, and Joe Cliopp were experienced members of the orchestra, and. with the exception of Eleanor Borncr, they were also members of the band. Mildred Thomson, pianist for the Young Women's Christian Association, was also accompanist for the girls’ quartettes, of which two members. Marcella Oilman and Claudia Vassau. were second year women. Agnes McClurg and Margaret O'Brien were members of another popular quartette. A large number of second year women and men took part in the dances and special features of the vaudeville. Archie Mueller and I Roy Luberg were members of “Henry's Quartette" which was the feature of several “Pep Fesis" and the vaudeville. In the organizations of the school. this cla« has had an unusual number of leaders. Mary Burke and Mary Catone were presidents of the Normal Catholic Association. Burton Karges was president of the Young Men' Christian Association. Gertrude Potter was president of the Young Women's Christian Association, and -lie was assisted by a cabinet of second year women with one exception. Norma Haunschild and Helen Hawkins were presidents of the Girls' Athletic Association. Elaine Forsyth and Evelyn Jenson were presidents of Aurlia. and 1-r Roy Luberg was president of the Lincolnian Debating Society. The editor of the “Student Voice.” Wroc Wolfe, had two classmate, on hi staff; Mary Catone was a news writer, and Elmer Ncl on was Business Manager. Besides participating in extra-curricular activities, the member of thi» da have not failed in scholarship. An unusually large number were on the honor roll each term. If the second year class has furthered in any way the spirit of our college, and if it has helped to place it among the leading colleges of the state, the class lias not failed to accomplish Its purpose in organization. 4 it v Sixty ThtrrWilma Aase Mondavi I Primary Y.

Chapman Eighty-Six® fjr Jfrrgfjman Class 3N the fall of 1927 a slightly smaller group of Freshmen entered the River Falls State Teachers College than in the previous year, but, in spite of the handicap of being few in number, they were destined to establish a distinct place in the school. Enrolled at the first class meeting were two hundred twenty-one, who represented all parts of the state. At this meeting Ralph Peterson was elected president, and Miss Chapman wus made class advisor. Benjamin West was elected president for the second semester. The loyalty of these people, as well as that of the rest of the officers, has been deeply appreciated. Although somewhat timid at first, it wasn’t long before the Freshmen began to merit the attention of the upper classmen. Their pep and enthusiasm were first manifested in a very successful party. This was followed by a similar affair in each of the succeeding terms. Every activity in the school was loyally supported by the class. Two men, Clarence Alfonse and Merlin Altenburg, earned R’s in football. This was a comparatively small number, but many Freshman candidates gave the rcgulurs their much needed practice and will serve as valuable material for next year's team. In basketball one man, Merlin Altenburg, made his R, and a large number turned out for the Freshman team. In forensics the class was also well represented, seven going out for debate. Rochelle Farrell, Margaret Hellwcg, Gordon Grimm, and Bernard Shields were on the second debate squad. Eighteen went out for work in dramatics. Several of these took part in the plays put on this year. Band, orchestra, glee clubs, and quartettes all received much support from members of the freshman class.

In spite of this handicap, both the football team and the basketball team achieved unusual records of excellence. While neither team won a state championship, both were very near (lie top and were rated among the best teams in the Wisconsin Teachers College conference. Coach B. L. Stanley came to River Falls with an unusually successful record ns a couch of football and basketball teams. Mr. Stanley received his training at Notre Dame and taught the Notre Dame football system. Before coming to River Falls, he coached successfully on the Pacific Coast and in the South-West, and had recently served ns assistant coach at Notre Dame. His football team played an unusually strong and versatile game. The team reached the top of its form in the Superior and the La Crosse games. On account of poor health. Mr. Stanley was obliged to resign his position in the middle of the year, the coaching responsibility passing to Mr. Marshall Diebold, a Wisconsin basketball star. The 1928 basketball season was one of the most successful seasons in the history of the school, even though the team did not make a 1000% record. In spite of a great deal of hard luck in the way of sickness and injuries, the team was able to tie for second place in the Wisconsin conference. After having won from La Crosse in the opening game of the season, a close game was lost to the same team on the home floor with three regulars on the side lines. This defeat pulled the team out of a chance for first place in the conference. Although in the time at his disposal Mr. Diebold was not able to put into effect all the details of the Wisconsin basketball system, he did inaugurate many of the fine points of the Wisconsin short-pass game. The play of the team constantly improved during the season, and had it not been for a long series of injuries to players, the team would undoubtedly have duplicated its record of last year. l M One Hundred TiroBurton Karces Perry Adams ®f)e JHanagers «0 the managers of our athletic teams belongs much of the credit for our successful season. Our managers have no easy task nor have they positions free from worry and responsibility. A manager, who is a good manager, must be businessman, doctor, and errand boy of the team. It is his duty to check in or check out the equipment of all kinds. His records must show just where every article of equipment is at any time. He must arrange for the transportation of the teams when they play games out of town. He must arrange for the lodging and the meals of the players while they are away from home on a trip. His ability as a doctor comes into prominence when he cares for the bruises, sprains, weak joints, or any other minor ailment any member of the team may have. It is his business to know that every individual on the team has everything he needs. This year Burton Karges, the manager of our football squad, and Perry Adams, the manager of our basketball team, have very completely fulfilled the requirements of good managers. Each has worked hard at every game and at every practice from the time the team first met until long after the final gun of the last game. For one year they worked as assistant managers in keen competition with several other men of the school to earn the positions they have so well filled. There are, perhaps, few students who work as long, hard, and faithfully for their school as do the managers of a school's teams. In spite of this fact, there are perhaps few who receive ns little credit and recognition for their long hours of hard work and the worry that must necessarily accompany such a responsibility. Knrgy and Adams have had an important place in this year’s success in athletics. Because we feel that they have been slighted by the student body, we take this means of giving them a Rail, Rah, Rah; Rah, Rah, Rah; Rah, Rah, Rah; Managers, Managers, Managers!!!! One Hundred ThreeCfjrrr ieabera ®HE cheer leaders of any college are probably responsible to a greater degree than most of us realize for the school spirit existing in that school. We pride ourselves on being u school with a spirit of support for all our representatives who compote in contests. A student body docs not give this support spontaneously, as a rule, but must be spurred on by someone with a goodly measure of enthusiasm, initiative, leadership, and devotion to his school. Fortunately, this year we have had among us a group of cheer leaders, who have created and maintained a spirit that has caused us to rise to our feet and liberally exercise our lungs and vocal cords as a physical indication of the fact that we are back of our teams. Our leaders have made us cheer as a unit in order that our cheering might be most effective. Don Olson has worked hard and exerted himself in a large way to develop the support of the student body. His initiative, leadership, loyalty, sincere appeals for student support, and his pep talks have contributed much toward the maintenance and development of the traditional River Falls spirit this year. He will be missed when lie graduates in June. Buck White lias made us yell whether wc wanted to or not, and he has made us happy during trying moments of this year’s games. Buck's earnest, perpetual smile says that lie thinks everything will be 0. K.; his initiative, and his overflowing enthusiasm have made him a most essential wheel in the cheering machinery of this school. Margaret Hellweg has proved to us that girls can also lead the cheering of a school. She did not appear often, but when she did, she certainly got the support of the students. Wc hope to see her often next year, because we believe she can get a bigger rise front the men than can the other leaders. John Dzubay, Leonard Madison, and Kermit Christison also served the school in this way in a first rate manner. Wc expect to see more of them next year. The members of this group have devoted their time, energy, ability, and voices to the promotion of bigger and better cheers at games, massmeetings, parades, celebrations, debates, assemblies, in fact, whenever and wherever a cheer was appropriate. They deserve our appreciation. One Hutu!i'il FourBack Row—Cfa ia. Farrell. I’aulun. Knerr. Al aar Miiidli: How C. AlulUndort. KadewaU. F. Mallendore. Hagttiad. AUeabarg. luberg. O'MalUy.

HadawaU football -yiTlIE 1927 football season was one of the most successful any gridiron learn lias VtU ever enjoyed at River Falls. Under the leadership of Captain Wennerberg and the guidance of Coach Stanley the Red and White won a reputation as a hard driving team. Both on the field and off the field they held the respect of their opponents. River Falls started the season by defeating Macalester 6 to 0. This game gave the home rooters an indication of the fact that the Red and White were in the conference race right from the start. Stout, Eau Claire, and Superior fell in rapid succession before the onslaughts of the Falls. To climax the season the home gridders tied the strong I.a Crosse eleven 13 to 13 for the Teachers College football championship. e One Hundred SixjfoortmU RIVER FALLS 6, MACALESTER 0 ii h jTOACH “CHICK” STANLEY made an impressive debut at River Falls when his KL crimson clad gridders defeated the strong Macalester eleven in the opening game of the season by a score of 6 to 0. Both teams were in mid-season form. Consequently, the Red and White rooters were treated to a royal game of football that balmy October afternoon. The break of the game came on a blocked punt. It was the elusive Segerstrom that blocked it. Captain “Kurt” Wennerberg then fell on the bounding pigskin behind the Macalester goal line for the touchdown that won the game. The Red and White used only a few plays and gained much experience for the Homecoming game ft with Stout. One Hundred Sewnhomecoming RIVER FALLS 19. STOUT 0 ®HE Homecoming game with Stout was the first conference game of the season. The Red and White displayed real football ability, and when the last echo of warcries died in the distance, River Falls marched victoriously off the gridiron with a 19-0 victory. In typical Rocknc style Coach Stanley started his second string squad. In the second quarter the shock troops entered the fray. Twice in this period they crossed the Stout goal in their victorious march. River Falls presented a stonewall line that was invincible to all onslaughts. On the offense it was the plunging of Claflin, the passing of Standish, and the running of MacDonald that ranked among the outstanding performances of the game. The old grads who were back for the game were assured that River Falls was again in the race for a fourth consecutive football championship. One Hundred Bight -tvfi. Jfoottiall RIVER FALLS 23. EAU CLAIRE 0 3N the second conference game the Falls swamped Eau Claire by a score of 23 to 0. This victory aroused championship aspirations at River Falls, since the Falls, Superior, and I.a Crosse were the only teams remaining in the race. The Red and White gridders were not forced to display any of their pigskin tactic- in the game. Straight football turned the trick for the home boys and did it nicely. The defensive work of the great crimson line was invincible. The fact that they held the Kau Claire team to only one first down during the game is proof of their ability. Captain “Kurt” Wnnerberg played an inspiring game, often going through the entire Eau Claire team to throw their backs for a loss.

However, when the battle was over, they were defeated to the tune of 12 to 0. River Falls again had cinched the Northern Championship. The game was exciting and hard fought. It was “Bud'' Manion and MacDonald who, after the ball had been worked down the field, crossed the goal of the Northmen for the deciding touchdowns. Time after time the Northmen were repulsed when they hit our line without gain.

When the Pointers marched on the field, they evidenced the fact that they were set for the game. Never in the history of the school hud they been victorious over River Falls. This was their big opportunity of the 1927 season. The break of the game came when an aggressive Pointer blocked a punt on the Falls four-yard-line. Although the Red and White twice worked the pigskin to the Pointers' ten-yard-line, the final drive necessary to win was locking. With these exceptions the game was evenly and furiously fought.

This game was by far the most exciting and hardest fought of the year. The Falls scored their first touchdown when they escorted the “pipkin' over the goal line on straight line plunges. However, La Crosse came back and tied the score by a series of line plays. But this did not stop the rush of the Red and White. With only two minutes of the first half remaining, Segerstrom received a pass and crossed the La Crosse goal giving the Falls a 13 to 6 advantage. During the last half the game developed into a punting duel. However, a Falb punt was blocked in the final quarter and La Crosse drove fifteen yards for the touchdown that tied the score. The running and passing of Standish, as well as the defensive work of Hage-stad, were the outstanding performances of the game. One Hundred ThirteenHv.»; Ko» tiiittins, Allenburg, Hunt. Cate.

On their western trip they played such schools as Carlcton, Macalester, Columbia College, Sioux Falls, North Dakota, The University of Minnesota, The North Dakota "Aggies," South Dakota Wesleyan University, Mitchell, South Dakota, and The University of South Dakota. All of these games were closely contested. The River Falls basketeers hit their true stride when they defeated the strong Macalester quintet by a score of 37 to 22 just before the opening conference game with La Crosse. With the exception of the addition of A1 ten berg, the Cuba City star, and the graduation of Captain Dawson, the team was composed of the same personnel that won the state championship the year before. y One Hundred FourteenRaymond Buss Captain JSasfeetball RIVER FALLS 28, LA CROSSE 24 IVER FALLS, under the guidance of Coach Diebold, won their first conference game with La Crosse. The game was well played and fast. It was the sharpshooting of Hunt, All-Conference forward, that kept the Red and White hoop-artists well in the lead. River Falls was never in danger. They led 18 to 11 at halftime and when the final gun cracked, they marched off the floor with a 24 to 28 victory. The splendid team work and aggressiveness of the River Falls team was the feature of the same.

Although the Eau Claire five put up a game fight, they were completely outclassed by the Falls sharp-shooters. The home boys took the lead at the start and were never in danger.

However, things did not fare so well with the home boys the second period. They showed the same dash and speed, but the ball would not go through the rim.

Saturday, June 4, was warm and sunny, the La Crosse running track was in perfect condition, as were the 114 contestants. In the first race run, an Oshkosh man broke the conference record for the one hundred yard dash. He ran it in the remarkable time of nine and four-fifths seconds. This time equals that of the largest universities in America. It was at this speed that the contest continued, one thrilling race after another and record breaking performances following in quick succession. River Falls, not a school of track enthusiasts, did remarkably well in not only winning two first, a second, and several fourths and fifths, but in setting a new state shot put record. “Winky” Claflin and the gigantic “Pee Wee” Weber started the River Falls scoring, taking first and second in the shot put respectively. Claflin set a new state record of 41 feet 11 inches. Weber then walked over to the discus ring and threw the disc far beyond the mark of his nearest competitor.

Arno Glueheisen and Ford Thurston did very well in the two-mile and one-mile runs, coming fifth and sixth respectively. Le Roy Luberg qualified for the finals in both the 100 yard and 220 yard dashes. He finished fourth in the “220".

The spring tournament of 1927 was one of the closest in both sections of any ever held on the local courts. Eight teams entered in the doubles and twelve individuals in the singles were so evenly matched that competition was at its keenest all the way through. The courts were in excellent condition throughout the season and slightly inclement weather failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the players in the slightest degree. Robert (Deak) Smith carried off first honors in the singles tourney, meeting as his last and most formidable opponent, Clen Hansen. The championship battle ran three closely fought sets, ending 5-7, 8-6, and 7:5. Both players were keyed to their best ability in the battle royal. The doubles tournament, equally close and equally thrilling, was open to students and faculty also, partners being drawn by lottery and elimination schedules carried out as in the case of the tennis singles. Overman and Rademacher carried the title, meeting Wesslen and Grahn in the finals. The championship games ran three closely fought sets, ending 6-8, 5-7, and 9-7. Sheer love of the sport rather than hope for reward prompted the enthusiasm in tennis, for no prizes were offered the winners except the name of “champion.” o it One Hundred Ttcenty-Ttco trimming; UK opening of n new swimming pool al (he college has greatly added to the advantages and facilities of the Departments of Physical Education.

It is not only back of girls' sports, but also behind all school activities. It also has its social side. Frequently the girls meet in South Hall gymnasium, and enjoy themselves dancing and playing gumes. Every year the association stages its masquerade dance. The biggest event of all is the house party on I.ake St. Croix which is held every spring. Participation in girls' athletics is encouraged by sweater awards, the loving cup, and the official R’s. The G. A. A. awards official “R” 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 kittenhall. Points are also earned by hiking, skiing, observing rules of personal hygiene, as well a« by placing in any of the various track events. A loving cup is also awarded annually to the girl who at the end of that year has to her credit the largest number of points after having won a sweater.

It didn't make any difference whether the girls knew anything about volleyball or not, anyone who was willing to try came out and succeeded in making a success of it before the season was over. One of the terms in volleyball is “assist,” and sometimes there were some very frantic calls to “assist” as the ball approached the net. Practices were held in the south hall gym every Tuesday and Thursday evening after school under the direction of Nettie Grotenhuis, who was elected sport head. There were a large number of freshmen interested this year; so many, in fact, that two freshmen teams were organized. About the usual number of second and third year students responded for practice. After a number of practices had been held, the respective classes picked the captains of their teams in preparation for the tournament. The freshmen captains were Helen Nelson and Norma Anderson, sophomore. Ruby Solum, and junior, Lois Hunt. The first tournament game was played between the two freshmen teams, in which Helen Nelson’s team was victorious. The second game between the second and third year teams was won by the sophomores. A tea was given by the G. A. A. officers in Miss Smith’s office for the girls who had taken part in the tournament.

Practices were held each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon after school under the supervision of Ruby Solum, who was sport head. The freshmen, displaying their usual interest in athletics, surpassed the other classes in the number of girls reporting for practices. The second and third year classmen were somewhat handicapped by the fact that so many of the girls were taking practice in the training school. After several weeks of practices the classes picked their various teams. Captains wore elected in preparation for the tournament, which was held during the first part of March. The freshmen elected Frances Bonnoy, captain, the sophomores, Helen Hawkins, and the juniors, Ruth Foley. Much more interest was shown in the basketball tournament than in the volley ball tournament; so, from the first, it promised to be and was an interesting contest. The first game which was played between the freshmen and juniors was won by the freshmen. The second game between the sophomores and junior students was another defeat for the juniors. The championship game then resolved itself into a battle between the freshmen and sophomores. Both sides were eager to win, so the game was a hard one from start to finish. Two of the sophomore girls were disqualified for fouls, with only one substitute to fill the places. The sophomores were then outclassed, and the game ended in favor of the freshmen.

MITCHELL has completed eight years of service as coach of forensics in the River Falls State Teachers College. When Mr. Mitchell came to this school, interest and work in forensics were at a low ebb. Today as Mr. Mitchell leaves our school. River Falls stands second to none in Wisconsin in the forensic field. Coach Mitchell’s record here has been one of continued, triumphant progress. His orators have placed high in slate and inter-state contests. We are third in rank oil the stole oratorical cup which has been up for competition four years. Coach Mitchell’s men have put us in first rank on a similar cup for extemporaneous speech. River Falls leads the stole and inter-state leagues in extemporaneous speech. In the other branch of this work—that of debate—Mr. Mitchell’s coaching has been just as brilliant. In the eight years, River Falls teams have won six Northern championships. State championship contests have been held seven times, and Mitchell teams have won three of them! Of 28 conference debates held in eight years we have won 22. This year River Falls teams have debated in nine different states of the Union. Mr. Mitchell has put into the work not only his ability but also his attractive personality. The debaters year in and year out have felt that they have received more than debate training—they feel that they have been in contact with a fine personality. This spirit of confidence and loyalty inspired by Coach Mitchell has done much toward putting River Falls at the top forensically. Other schools have expressed not only their fear of Mr. Mitchell as a coach, but their respect for him as a gentleman. Truly, Mr. Mitchell has won for himself a great place in the history of the River Falls State Teachers College.

Although we did not win either state contest, we maintained our record of placing each year in both contests. John Burke with an oration “Patriots of Peace” tied for second in total ranks and stood third after the reranking. John Davison was awarded fourth place in the extempore contest. The local oratorical contest occurred January 12th. Four survivors of preliminaries, John Burke, John Davison, Donald Olson, and Thomas Barry, competed. Professor I. M. Cochran, of Carlclon College, the expert judge, awarded second to John Davison and first to John Burke. The local extempore contest was held February 18th. Thomas Barry, Donald Olson, Robert Smith, and John Davison were the preliminary survivors this time. The judges, Mr. Hanna, President Ames, and Mr. Mitchell, unanimously selected John Davison to represent us in the slate contest and awarded second place to Robert Smith. The state contests were held at Oshkosh March 16th with the results mentioned above. Donald Gleason of Oshkosh won the extempore contest; Frank Joswick, of Stevens Point, the orator)'. f Y One Hundred Thirly-OneRobert Smith Thomas Barry John Burke Debate ®HIS year’s debate program has been by far the most ambitious ever attempted by a River Falls squad. When the season’s schedule has been completed River Falls teams will have participated in over thirty-five debates with teams from nine different states; they will have discussed three different questions. The outstanding features of this year’s program are the western and southern tours, especially the latter. They are described in full elsewhere. The conference question for discussion this year was: Resolved that the United States should cease to protect by force of arms American capital invested in foreign countries, except after formal declaration of war. After a series of elimination debates the following were chosen last December to make up the first squad: Marshall jNorseng, John Davison, Robert Smith, Thomas Barry, LeRoy Luberg, John Burke, Peter Vig, Donald Olson. Five of these men were members of last year’s state championship and prospects looked good. Early in January the squad began a series of dual practice debates with the Minnesota colleges. Among those engaged were St. Thomas, Macalestcr and at River Falls, while a Falls negative, composed of John Davison, Donald Mainline. A barn-storm-ing team from La Crosse stopped off for a practice encounter. On February 24th a Falls negative met an affirmative team from St. Norbert’s college, West De Pere, Wisconsin, before the Roberts Commercial Club. The first conference debates were held March 2nd. An affirmative team consisting of Robert Smith, Thomas Barry, and John Burke defeated an Eau Claire negative team Lk Roy Lubbrg Olson, and Marshall Nors-eng, vanquished a Superior affirmative after a hard battle at Superior. The following Friday a two-man team, consisting of Marshall Norseng and Donald Olson, upheld the negative of the conference question against an affirmative from the State Teachers College at Moorhead, Minnesota, before the New Richmond high school. ?= £= One Hundred Thlrtv-TtcoJohn Davison Donald Olson Marshall Norsenc Sebate ®HE second round of conference debates occurred Monday, March 26th. Our affirmative went to La Crosse, while our negative met Milwaukee on the home platform. Here we sufTcred our first defeat in three years, losing both debates after hard battles. On the following Saturday occurred the big home debate of the season. A two-man negative team composed of Marshall Norseng and John Davison opposed an affirmative from Simmons University, Abilene, Texas. The Texans were on an extended northern tour taking them into Canada, and the Forensic Board was fortunate in securing them. The Oxford style of decision was used, the result being a tic. This debate completed the season save for the western and southern trips which are described elsewhere. River Falls loses five outstanding debaters this year, debaters who have done much to put River Falls on the forensic map. John Burke, Robert Smith, Donald Olson, Thomas Barry, and Marshall Norseng will have debated their last for River Falls when this book appears. John Davison, a veteran of three years, alone will be back. All of these men have made exceptionable records at the Falls, but Marshall Norseng deserves special mention. By winning the slate contests in oratory and extempore speaking in successive years and then placing in the inter-state contest in both, Norseng set an all time record, not only for River Falls, but for the state and interstate league. During his debate career at River Falls he has lost but one debate. The Falls is proud of Marshall and his record and will mis next year. The year’s ule, exclusive of the western and southern tours, appears to the right.

A team consisting of John Davison, John Burke, and Marshall Norseng, accompanied by Mr. Mitchell, is at the time of this writing on a three weeks debate tour of the south. A complete schedule of the tour will be found on the next page. All of the debates are to be by two-man teams, but, since both sides of three questions are to be discussed, three men were taken on the trip. Debates have been scheduled in six different southern states: Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois.

In order to give a larger number of students a chance to actively participate in debate, n squad of eight was organized under the direction of Marshall Norseng and Mr. Mitchell. After a series of try-out debates the following were selected to make up the squad: Rochelle Farrell, River Falls; Gordon Grimm, River Falls; Carl Amundson, Elk Mound; Helen Hawkins, Hammond; Marjorie Hughes, Hudson: Martin Abra-harnsen, Wittenberg; Bernard Shields, Hammond, and Margaret Hellweg, Hudson. A series of debates with nearby high schools was arranged. It included debates with Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Hudson, and Hayward. The second teams made excellent showings and as a result of the experience gained should prove valuable members of the first squad next year.

This year, the third of its practice as a college custom. Homecoming’s perfunctory riot was a most hilarious and successful achievement. Typical of previous similar exhibitions, the grand demonstration of pandemonium staged October 14, a scene from which is pictured on the page opposite, was carefully and quietly planned fully a week before its actual culmination. This, however, was not known by the student body, for to the school as a unit the walkout is purely a spontaneous demonstration and, once started, is accomplished in a matter of a few minutes. Nevertheless, clever propagandists set the stage, oil the machinery, and explode the “bomb" which starts the riot. At noon on Friday, October 14, the college campus radiated an atmosphere of tension. Five hundred students, loaded to the core with an effusion of pre-Home-coming pep, restlessly convened for afternoon classes, hoping for something, anything, to happen to relieve the awful suspense. It happened. The shrill gong for classes had hardly sounded before a deeper throbbing sound replaced the hateful summons to duty. The drum!!! Upper classmen knew the language, and prepared for what was sure to come. Some of the frosh suspected, and fidgeted uneasily with dire misgivings as to what course to pursue: others, not knowing what it was all about, merely wondered. Profs either grinned or frowned knowingly. They, too, knew the language, and either evidenced open or feebly disguised inward approval, for even Profs enjoy a holiday. The nucleus of what was soon to be an entire college personnel marched down across the campus, gathering volume like a snowball rolling down hill. Into South Hall and into each classroom the cavalcade filed, shouting or singing an incoherent “On, Oh Falls." Emptying the entire building in a matter of minutes, the procession swarmed upon North Hall, where a similar evacuation took place. The training school alone withstood the ravaging horde, though eager juveniles yearned to join the carefree procession in its march downtown. Down through the city marched the procession with skipping and snake dances rippling down the long colorful line. Downtown an impromptu mass meeting on the busiest corner on Main Street announced to the people of River Falls and the world in general that another Homecoming celebration had begun. Back on the campus a few sophisticated bookworms remained to pay tribute to the god of learning. In the training school a little corps of practice teachers struggled vainly to keep school going while rebellious youngsters made life a nightmare. But nevertheless, school was “out.” The walkout was a most annoyingly glorious success. S. S. i( v One Hundred FWv-SixOne Hundred Fifty-Seven omrcominB J 11KN the old grads came back to their Alma Mater for the Homecoming Celebration of 1927, they found the old River Falls spirit welcoming them. Mammoth crowds, wonderful weather, and a happy co-operative student body merged to make this fiesta the biggest and finest in the history of River Falls. The celebration was officially begun by the usual Friday evening, spirit-radiant pep-fest. Probably no livelier mass meeting has ever been held in the college auditorium than that meeting where stunts, speeches, songs, and novelties were featured. The assembly room was packed far beyond its seating capacity. Senator Hunt presided, and the platform was fi led with enthusiastic graduates. Kvery one who was called upon respondel with an interesting talk, which showed that our alumni follow the Red and White athletes almost ns closely as they formerly did when they were attending classes here- Much credit is due John liurkc, who was general chairman of the Homecoming of 1927. He spurred students to act ion and kept the spirit at the highest possible point during the entire event. The celebration gained momentum, which swung the happy throng through the evening torch light parade. More than 300 mammoth torches lighted the streets for the parading crowd. The parade terminated on one of the comers where more cheers and stunts were staged before the entire populace of River Falls, for at that time everyone was on- the streets. The entire city was dressed in Homecoming splendor. The streets, store facades, and the college buildings were decorated in the traditional red und white. A host of novel and artistic ideas appeared in the gay decorations of the downtown business establishments. At 'ten o'clock Saturduy morning an exceptionally large parade came into prominence. Tho variety of floats reflected a quality of beauty, wit, and originality heretofore unseen in this vicinity. The unity with which this school works was expressed in the fact that every organization, many house gangs, und some individuals prepared floats for this big parade. The frosh with "The Spirit of River Fulls” were awarded first place by the judges. The G. A. A. received second, the N. C. A. third, and the Clothes Pin Club carried off all honors for the comic float. The Albert llurvey Fletcher Legion Post commanded the admiration of the home people and visitors olike when they appeared with their long line of trucks, tractors, and other equipment. Rainer Field was packed to its fullest capacity long before the game was scheduled to begin. Army blankets, robes, fur coats, and other means of keeping warm were in great abundance and every one was set for the big combat. The drum and bugle corps of the local post added much to the spirit of the 5000 people who massed at Ramcr Field to watch the Red and While battle with the Stout aggregation. The corps paraded the field to the applause of Stout and River Falls alike. The game was hard fought and very fascinating. Everyone viewed it with keenest interest. However, at no time were the Red and While in very great danger. The cheer leaders and band were in good form and the team got the support that gives them the drive to win. The evening's events began with the bonfire ceremony, which offered several innovations over previous years in the way of stunts and talks. The bonfire was attended by loyal students and alumni. The celebration officially epded on the floor of North Hall Gymnasium where the Homecoming Ball was staged. The floor was filled to capacity and a peppy orchestra furnished the kind of music that affects the feel. Here the grads really met each other in the same old River Falls atmosphere. The dance might truly be called a glorious crowning of a great day's festivities. —M. C.

In the crowd was one of our cheer Icadri . and soon the hotel lobby wa resounding to the roars of the "locomotive’' and the beautiful strain of the Pledge Song, much to the amazement of the usual lineup of traveling men and salesmen, and to the extreme discomfort of the adjoining cafe. After the game the team enjoyed a delightful Thanksgiving dinner at one of the hotels. _ It was here that the announcement wa made that the bus would have 10 start from the station promptly ul ten o'clock. With this the dinner broke up and everyone started out with the intention of doing and seeing as much u possible before ton o'clock. Some went to the movies, others went to tho dance. And of course a certain select few were forluuulc enough lo have dates with some new found friends. Ten o'clock came around; about eight fellows appeared at the bus station. Eleven o’clock came; tho number had increased to twelve. Thanks to the accommodating bus driver, however, u tour was made of the theaters, hotels, bowling alleys, cafes, dance halls, and all the private homes suspected of harboring passengers with the result that shortly after midnight the bus left I .a Crosse with about twenty-five passenger . The return trip was a perfect sequel to Paul Revere'a memorable ride, except that a stop was not made at every farmhouse—however, this much is certain, that they did raise every farmer and villager on the route.

Due to accidents and the like, it va« found necessary to pick up several Falls-bound individuals who had fallen by the wayside, so that when the bus pulled up alongside of North Hall it expelled thirty-five passengers from it lists. Everybody tired, but everybody happy. “How was everything at home?” “Oh. same a ever. How was La Crosse? “La Crosse! Say. you should have been there! I • . ■ One Hundred Sixty9 One H u nil red Sixtv-Onc®fjc Cxotmtf of December 16 Hr OUH hundred excited, homesick, hilarious college students rushed to the depot the Friday mP before Christmas to board the three-twenty passenger for Hudson. River Falls had for three days been snowbound, and for two days students had been leaving town as best they could, because of their fear of not being able to hang up that Christmas stocking with papa and mama- On this particular Friday the little engine of the “peanut limited" with its extra regalia of two or three cars had to stop before it reached the bridge to work up enough steam to make the Inst lap to our depot. No one bemoaned the fact that there wore two weeks of freedom from assignments and eight o'clocks before him. The crackcr-hox depot was overcrowded with happy college folks and baggage. The ticket agent found life interesting, for once, but far from pleasant, because a two-hour, strenuous, mad scramble for tickets and checks was on. Iluggngc, bundles, boxes, and luggage of all kinds was piled high in the waiting rooms and on the platform. Many of our sophisticated seniors, wise to the ways of the mad Christmas rush, had taken precaution' by purchasing tickets and checking baggage that morning. With expressions of I told you so" they leaned back to enjoy the sad predicament of the panic stricken frosh. “Here she comes" was the frequent announcement of the designing individuals who envied those who had become nicely settled, waiting for the train. Everyone “piled" out with sighs and groans of relief, only to realize that it was a “Wolf. WolP story. When the passenger finally did pull into the Falls, many unfortunates were too nervous to even attempt boarding it unaided. They were merely swept along by the crowd and bodily carried up the steps and “plunked'' into the nearest scat. Several of our enthusiastic mule students nobly assisted the engine by pushing it off for a good start. After an interminable ride, the train came to u dead standstill at North Hudson. Here several minutes were spent wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year- After breaking away from those final embraces, the crowd dispersed into trains headed for the four directions- The student body was broken up into contented, selfsatisfied groups, who settled down for that last lap toward the old home town. Baggage was transferred, roommates were hugged, lovers were kissed, and "Merry Christmas" was shouted for the last time in 1927, und college friends were separated for two weeks. In each passenger was now a group of students who soon changed the cars into ball rooms. Portable viclrolas, mouth organs, accordions, banjos, and various kinds of instruments provided jazz music, and couples were soon stepping the light fantastic up and down the aisle. Several of the more sober-minded students waited until Saturday to take their leave from the old college town. Their farewell was not so boisterous nor complicated and they were able to find comfortable, uncrowded seats for which they could feel very thankful. These students probably had fewer complications, but they missed a large part of college life. There is something fine and pleasing about a noisy, rushing, happy group of well-wishing college friends. A still smaller number of even more sober-minded friends decided to spend their vacation in River Falls. Probably they enjoyed their vacation, but they missed the thrill of a lifetime— going home Christmas.

The medieval manuscript has been the basis of much of our planning, and we have tried to carry out medieval ideas throughout our art work, priming, and cover design. One Hundred Sixty-Eight )t iWeletean fUST to what extent we have succeeded in building a book that pleases you, we leave to your judgment. If you are dissatisfied with our efforts, we have failed. , If, however, you like the book, then, thanks to Miss Latta. She has generously given of her time to the making and planning of this book in order that it might be a success. If she could have received perfect assistance on the part of the staff members, we would have had a perfect yearbook to submit to the students and faculty at River Falls. With Miss Latta as permanent advisor, the Meletean will soon become the unique college annual of this north country. One Hundred Sixty-Sinemt tubent 'Voice Elmer Nelson STAFF Wroe Wolfe ....

The outstanding work of the fall term was the putting of the skating rink in condition for the use of the public. Because of the assistance of the City Council, we were able to make many improvements which heretofore were impossible. Through the co-operation of the Forensic Department, we were fortunate in obtaining Dr. Cochran of the Carleton College Faculty to give a number of readings to the student body. Throughout the year, it has been the desire of the Social Committee to have a special dance corresponding to the masquerade of last year. This year for an attraction we secured Joe Peycr’s Orchestra. In addition to the dance during the spring term, we are making plans for an all school picnic to be held sometime in Besides fostering these four major projects the Social Committee has put on many matinee and evening dances. f [■'; V) One Hundred Sere t1hThre 0 J I ft f I u 4) 71 All or Kergei Troyer htullendore Wennerberg U’ Goble Peterson Toy lor Nyhl Harding Johnson Luberg Fenton Lampkere Mooney Brlggson Diubay ©oung Jflpn'S Christian association CABINET Burton Karces.......................

I trie key F««KT How Mr. Jncobsoi ©. m. c. a. flTHK program of the Y. M. C- A, during the school year 1927 28 was marked hy several new and unique features, which contributed much in making the Y. M. C A. not only the largest organization on the campus, but also one of distinct service to the students of the school. An enlargement of the cabinet to include six new positions made possible more widespread contacts with actual campus life and built up a strong nucleus with which to carry on the program of the “Y.” Feeling that perhaps the greatest distinctive contribution of the Y. M. C. A. should he the building of Creative Christian Personality, we have placed more emphasis than ever before upon the spiritual values of life. This was accomplished chiefly by means of well planned and carefully conducted devotional services. Joint devotional meetings held with the Y. YV. C. A. and the N. C. A. on various special occasions replaced the joint discussion meetings of former years. During the second week of school in Januury Dr. Arthur Rugh spent three days with us. discussing personal und campus problems. The beauty and sincerity of Dr, Hugh's Christian character left u distinct impression and an uplifting influence upon all who came to know him. In order to better understand international problems and to appreciate the view points of peoples in other lands, several foreign students were invited to River Kails to speak on various phase of the international situation, I hi chan S. Teja from Indio gave us some Orientul criticisms off Western Christianity; Mr. Iwao Kukushima. a Japanese, spoke on Japanese und American relationships. Walter S. Watson, an American who served on a 'indent commission to Russia in 1927. gave us an insight into many phases of modern Ru «ian life. Five delegates were sent to the Cake Geneva Summer Conference last spring, two men were sent to the Student Volunteer Convention at Detroit during the Christmas holiday , and eleven members off the cabinet attended the Cabinet Training Conference at Mcnomonie. In a social way the Y' continued to take a leading part on the campus. The opening att-•chool mixer in September, the annual l»ean soup festival or stag party, and the joint picnic with the Y. W. C. A. und N. C. A. in the spring were unusually successful Altogether, considering these points and the fact that 135 men—two thirds of the men in school__are “Y members, cerluinly it can be -said that this has been a most successful year for the River Falls Y.” One Hundred Sreentp-FireV I?oung Women's Christian gfafeforiation Gertrude Potter Stella Pedersen Madce Martin • Thelma Hovde Mabel Jacobson Florence Walker Thelma Mears Marie Strevey Miss Hathorn - CABINET President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Devotional Chairman IP’or Id Fellowship Chairman Social Service Chairman Social Chairman Faculty Advisor Power Pedersen Martin Hovde Jecoltoa Mears Walker Survey U ij 1 ll .17 i One Hundred Seventy-Sixi. m. c. a. i $ v s The Y. W. C. A. opened its program for this year by joining with the other Christian Associations in sponsoring an all school “mixer,” September 16. Later, an impressive candle-light service was held in the auditorium. One hundred and twenty-nine girls joined the Y. W. C. A. that night. Every Tuesday evening an interesting discussion was held. The unique idea of conducting a “Charm School” attracted many girls other than regular members. Several joint devotional meetings were held with the Y. M. C. A. The girls showed a true Christmas spirit by making novel gifts which they sent to the poor children in Cade’s Cove, Tennessee, and to the County Poor Farm at Ellsworth. They also made things for the children’s ward in the local hospital. This organization is not without its parties. A gypsy party for all the girls in school was given and proved to be a great success. Dime Day was another unique idea. The girls offered to press trousers, black shoes, cut hair, darn socks, or give manicures for a dime. The installation service at which the new cabinet members assumed their duties was a delightful service. Toward the end of the school year the three religious organizations held a joint picnic. Throughout the year the Y. W. C. A. has been raising a fund to send two girls to the Geneva Conference this summer. f , - 15 I IV-I i Id W One Hundred Seventy-SevenMary Burke Rhinehart Gruber iSormal Catholic Association OFFICERS First Semester Second Semester Mary Burke......................President - - - Rhinehart F.

Under the direction of our able advisor, Mr. Junkman, our society has completed one of its most succsesful years. Regular meetings were held every Tuesday evening and varied programs were given. These programs consisted of talks by Father Fassbendcr, musical selections, group discussions, and numbers given by students. A number of parties were given throughout the year for the enjoyment of the members and their friends. The parties were usually held at the church parlors where the students received a very hearty welcome from Father Fassbendcr. We believe that our organization has made all our members better acquainted with our religion, improved our ideals, and has made us better accustomed to the shouldering of responsibilities, and has given us valuable practice in addressing an audience.

Cooke, San ord, Miller, Elmblade Sgrifallian ®HE Agrifallian Club, whose membership includes all students of agriculture, is an organization for the purpose of providing training in public speaking, debating, and parliamentary practice. The regular programs of the year were formerly put on by a committee which was usually appointed at the preceding meeting. This year a program committee was selected for each meeting at the beginning of the year, each senior acting as chairman of one committee. On several occasions members spoke on various timely topics. At other times up-to-the-minute questions were debated. Up to the present time the society has had no pin or insignia at any time. This year a standard insignia was adopted for the society. Public work in which the club engaged was in assisting at the Farmers’ Institute held in January. A large share of the detail of caring for and arranging exhibits was carried out by Agrifallian members, and they attended lectures in large numbers both days. A Poultry and Grain Show is planned and managed by the students of the Agriculture Department under the supervision of members of the agriculture staff- The next public appearance of the club was to assist in the Agricultural Field Day held on the College Campus in May. The students put on demonstrations, which arc coached by senior students, prepare educational exhibits, fit animals for show, and carry on various other types of work not possible in the class room. The speaker for the banquet of the evening was Mr. L. M. Snsmnn. In every way the club has proved itself a valuable adjunct of the School of Agriculture and interest promises to remain just as keen for another year. With the establishment of the four year course leading to a degree, and the improvements now being made, the future of the Agrifallian Club looks promising indeed.

Pnsmk Mural life Club IPHE Rural Life Club is an organization made up of students taking a rural course. y The aim of this club is to train its members to be leaders in rural communities and to make the rural school take its place in the social life as well as the educational life of the community. To accomplish this, we have had regular meetings every two weeks with a variety of programs, consisting of parliamentary practice, debate on a rural subject, readings, recitations, addresses, and music, both instrumental and vocal. As has been customary in past years, we held our annual banquet in November in the cafeteria. We were very fortunate in securing State Superintendent John C. Callahan as the speaker of the evening. He gave a very interesting talk on a subject interesting to us who plan on teaching in rural schools. The county superintendents from surrounding counties were also guests at this occasion. Another outstanding social event of the year in this organization was the Leap Year Valentine party to which we invited members of the Agrifallian Society and professors in the Agriculture Department and their wives. The evening was spent playing games, with a trip to the theater to see “The High School Hero,” and refreshments. This being Leap Year the girls of the R. L. C. planned the party and did the escorting to the show. A trip to the Minnesota state prison at Stillwater is now being discussed, so possibilities are that such an interesting and educational trip will be made in the near future. One Hundred Eight!

Hoe! g. € . ITHE G. 0. P. has had the usual success this year in all of its activities. A new system for taking in members was begun this year and has proved very successful. By this system the new people are kept one term as pledges before they can become real members. During the first term ten pledges were picked from the girls who have previously attended school here, and were initiated at the end of the first term. For the second term fifteen girls were selected from the Freshmen, who were initiated at the end of that term. By this system the girls become acquainted with the organization before they become real active members. As usual this year, the G. 0. P. was ready at any time to back the school in all its activities. At the pep meetings and games they were found in a body with all their pep with them. Last year the G. 0. P. bought the picture, “King Lear." for the training school, but it was not framed at that time. This year they framed the picture and presented it to the Junior High School, where it now hangs in the English department. Turning to the social side, we find equal success. At Homecoming the annual G. 0. P. banquet was the usual success, with many old grads hack. In November was held an informal dance in the Society Room, which was attended by about eighteen couples. The week before Christmas the G. 0. P. girls together with the members of the Lincolnian were entertained at a Christmas tea by Miss Greene. On January twenty-ninth occurred the annual G. 0. P. formal, which was an unusual success. The gym was decorated in colonial style with old rose and gray as the color scheme. The last event of the year was the annual banquet on Commencement Day, for which many old members were back. r. yr One Hundred Eighty-Seven LeRoy Ll'bekc John Burke Kncolnian First Semester OFFICERS Second Semester Le Roy Luberg • President • John Burke Lewis Troyer - • - - - Vice President - Lyle Lamphere Foster Mitchell - Secrelary-T reasurer Hoyt Johnson Faculty Advisor Mr. Mitchell One Hundred Right’ ■RightB«k l(o- T .r t.

The society fosters and promotes true River Falls school spirit and backs all school activities. Its members are among the most influential of the student body. Meeting arc held every other week at which the business of the society is transacted and interesting programs including debates and speeches are given. Special meetings of the year include the election of officers and the traditional initiation ceremonies. The Lincolninns have during the past year taken an active part in all pep meetings, added much to the Homecoming program, and have distributed school booster badges at appropriate times throughout the year. The society sponsored the play ‘Three Wise Fools,” the proceeds from which went to defray expenses for college debate. Each year the organization, with the school’s interest at heart, entertains the visiting high school students who take part in the District Oratorical Contest held at River Falls. The Lincolnian Debating Society has earned for itself the name of being one of the most active organizations in school. The society's success has been due in a large measure to its able advisor, Mr. Mitchell. One Hundred Ki'jhty-SinrOne Hundred Ninety3 Chronicle SEPTEMBER A.

There I should not meet with any of the three classes of people whom I cannot tolerate: those who say, “Give me Juicy Fruit or give me death,” those who read sub-titles at the movies, and those who eat the frosting from their cake and then reproachfully view the cake itself. There the teachers allowed to enter would be cautioned, “Abandon that pedagogical attitude, all ye who enter here.” There I might find an abundance of good literature and bad books, but none of Emerson’s works. There I might find friends and companions and classmates, but meet with none of the horrors of rows of desks within red brick walls. Would not this be paradise? NOTICE I have taken the exclusive agency for the new maximeter just invented last week. I am in a position to furnish the entire student body with this wonderful device of which every student has long dreamed, but never hoped to see perfected. For the benefit of those who do not know, the maximeter is a very delicate apparatus designed to separate the facts from the bull of any Profs lectures. —Marshall Norsenc, Sales Manager. FAMOUS LAST WORDS I’m sorry, but I already have a date. But Prof., I didn’t hear your question. But central. I've already dropped in a nickle. Listen, Heem, I stopped at that intersection. I have a little pony Thai is lots of help to me. And when I write my final tests, keep it on my knee. And if the questions bother, I fust glance upon my card; Cause when you've got a pony, The tests are never hard. Tiro II uiulrtd SixTHE FIFTH YEAR CLASS To those whose undying loyalty to college traditions has prompted them to remain on our beloved campus for a fifth year, enrolling in courses a second or third time, if need be, to occupy themselves with scholastic endeavor, we dedicate this page. It is they who perpetuate the school's traditions. They lubricate the school’s machinery from one generation to another — verily they are the oil cans of the institution. We humbly doff our hats to this honor legion, among whom are our friends—Frank Rademacher and Theodore Olson. FOUND River Falls is a good place to attend college. Eight o'clocks are not entirely pleasant. Graduation isn’t nearly as much fun as we thought. It doesn’t pay to run for a street car or a girl, there will be another one along in a minute. It doesn’t pay to stag it to the Prom. College days may be nice, but college nights are nicer. The good looking girls already have dates. A scene of beauty from the windows of the Meletean office. The small boy who has caught a strange dog, and the fisherman who is looking for a place to keep his worms may be the justification, but we raise the question. (o)Ma love the college faculty From Prexy to Dick Eide. They made me what I am today— hope they re satisfied. It cost my daddy plenty To keep me here in schoolf And now “Good-bye” to profs and pats— I hope Pm no darn fool. Tiro Hundred SevenTtco Hundred Eight y HI II i l.l. R 1 i jnuijp
