American schools and colleges have been dedicated to the democratic principle that education is for the betterment of the many and not for the training of a few selected leaders. It is highly important in this country that this fundamental concept of the purpose of education 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. It will be recognized that the stability of our political and social systems is dependent upon 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 interest, enrich the inner life and deepen the feeling of civic responsibility. The most sinister feature in the life of the American people today is their cynical contempt for law and government and the evident purpose on the part of great classes of our citizens to use government not as an instrument of justice to all. but as a means whereby some class benefit may be seized. The American student entertains a high type of loyalty for his institution. This is one of the splendid things connected with student life. The fine and enthusiastic support of loyalty which these young men and women have for their college has its chief significance in the kindling of these sentiments in the lives of the future citizens of the nation. Tn'imy-OntTHE COLLEGE THE River Falls State Teachers College was established in 1875. the fourth institution of its kind to be established in the State of Wisconsin. It consisted of one building located on South Campus. At the time of its origin the school had a faculty of nine members and an enrollment of two hundred fifty-nine students. During the first thirty-five years that it was in operation, the majority of the students were enrolled in elementary departments that did not require high school graduation for admission. The original building was destroyed by fire in 1897. The building now known as South Hall was erected in 1898. and until 1914 this building housed all the different departments. In 1914 North Hall was built. The executive offices, auditorium, gymnasium, and science laboratories were all located in this building. An addition to North Hall was added in 1928 and the training school department was moved from its old location on the third floor of South Hall into this new addition. More adequate science laboratories were equipped on the second and third floors, a modern swimming pool and large locker rooms were constructed on the first floor, and a hand ball court was built in a room adjacent to the gymnasium. The barracks which were erected during the World War have been used since that time for shops for the agriculture and mechanics department. However, the state legislature has made the necessary appropriations, and plans are now under way to erect a modern shop building on South Campus just west of South Hall. It is the plan of the committee in charge to have the building completed and ready for occupancy at the opening of school in September. 1930. Many changes have taken place in the curricula since the school was first organized. The policy of specialized courses was introduced in 1910. This came as a result of the demand for teachers trained in some particular branch. The rural department was organized the same year. This department requires one year of attendance for graduation and has grown until at present there are forty-eight people taking the training which prepares them to teach in the rural schools of the state. TuMMy-TlHOTHE COLLEGE SHE agriculture department was organized in 1912. It developed into a four-year course, and the graduates of this department were eligible for a bachelor’s degree. In 1928 they were granted the right to teach agriculture in the Smith-Hughes high schools. At the present time there are sixty men enrolled in the agriculture department. The department of elementary education, which consists of primary, intermediate, and grammar grades, requires two years of attendance for graduation. The primary department, which prepares teachers for grades one to three inclusive, has an enrollment this year of forty-one students. There are thirty-nine girls enrolled in the intermediate department, which prepares teachers for grades from four to six inclusive. The twenty-six people enrolled in the grammar grade department are preparing themselves to teach in the seventh and eighth grades. The junior high school department with an enrollment of ten. and the principal's department with four, have the smallest enrollment of any of the departments. The high school department has been attracting more students each year until this year it leads all of the other departments, with an enrollment of one hundred and eighty students in its different branches. In 1927 the title of the school was changed to the River Falls State Teachers College, and it became a degree granting institution the same year. Bachelor’s degrees are granted in agriculture, science, education, mathematics, history, social science, and English. The graduates of the high school department who have completed four years of college work are eligible for degrees. In its first year as a degree granting institution, the River Falls State Teachers College issued thirteen degrees. This number increased to twenty-six in 1929. Degrees will be granted to thirty people this year. At this rate of increase it is evident that in the near future all people who graduate from the River Falls State Teachers College will have completed a four-year course and be entitled to a degree.

Stratton THE SENIOR CLASS of the largest and most active classes that ever entered the River Falls ' Teachers College will graduate with degrees this June, 1930. Two hundred twelve ambitious Freshmen started an illustrious class history in the fall of 1926. They immediately became known by making up nearly one half of the entire state championship football team in 1926, and placed four men on the championship basketball team. In forensics as well they were active, helping appreciably to make a state championship debate team. The graduation of many students taking the rural course caused a decided decrease in numbers during the second year, but the same enthusiasm pre-dominated. Over one half of a stalwart football team were members of the class and the entire basketball team. A new and unusual prom was presented by the class in the spring. In the year 1928-29 the class of '30 was "ace high” throughout the state as well as in the school. Practically the entire football team was made up of these veteran athletes, and once more the basketball team were champions, with all the regulars members of the class of 30. Debating also received valuable assistance from the class. In June. 1929. a majority of the class' great athletes, along with many other loyal members of the class, were graduated. Everything looked barren for the fourth and last year, but once more the class came to the fore by providing four members of the championship debate squad and the school orator. The class was supplemented by outstanding men of former years, back to get degrees, and these newcomers fitted in to make an enterprising, competent, mature group of graduates. The last three Meleteans have been edited by members of this class, as well as the school paper. This unusual class will go down in history as leaders in athletics, forensics, dramatics, publications, and scholarship. During the entire four years the class has enjoyed perfect harmony in all its endeavors. This co-operation has been largely due to the competent and generous advisor. Dean Stratton, to whom the class accords the most sincere thanks. Tbirty-Sfx'tr)Martin Abrahamsen - - Wittenberg Agriculture Y. M. C. A. I. 2, 3. 4. Secretary 3, Cabinet 3. 4: Agrifallian 1. 2, 3. 4.

Mrs. Eide has guided this class during its college life by her helpful advice and suggestions. Ralph Peterson and Ben West were the able presidents of the first year and started the year right by giving such parties as have not been equalled since. The Freshman float won first place in the homecoming parade, and an artist, Kcrmit Christison, was discovered in their midst. The second year this class had a greater goal to work toward—the prom. Glen Lund and Clarence Alfonse were the presidents and continued the good record set the year before. With Gordon Grimm as prom chairman, everyone felt sure of a "bigger and better" prom. Margaret Fox planned and directed the decorations, which were worked out in Dutch scenes. The sky was represented by filmy blue paper, and Kermit Christison again showed his artistic ability by painting beautiful Dutch scenes all along the wall. Dikes were built up to meet these, and from these sprang many colored tulips. Probably the greatest achievement was a real Dutch windmill that would run. This gave the desired effect, so that one upon stepping into the “gym" felt assured that he was in Holland. Punch was served from this windmill by some little girls, who were dressed in Dutch costumes. The fans of the mill were lighted with different colored lights, and these, revolving, spread a gleam over the dancers. Don D'Amico's Orchestra from the University of Minnesota supplied music for this occasion. The prom proved a great success and was worth the efforts of the second year class. During this, its third year, the Junior class has found its number lessened by the graduation of a large group of two-year students. The class spirit has been undaunted, however, for under the leadership of Bernard Morton, the first semester, and Carl Neitzske. the second, the class has been fairly active. One class party, which was well attended, has been the only social event thus far. In athletics. Clarence Alfonse was football captain for this year and has been a letter man all three years. Clair Bartosh. Myrlen Altenburg, and Ray Wile have also won letters in football. In basketball. Myrlen Altenburg, Clarence Alfonse. Ray Wile, and William Turner have brought honor to our class. In dramatics, Margaret Fox and Bernard Morton have been outstanding. Scholastically the Junior class ranks very high, for it is always well represented on the honor roll.

Hill THE SOPHOMORE CLASS THE Sophomore class began its career in the River Falls State Teachers College two years ago with an enrollment of two hundred and one “green” but willing Freshmen,-who have since developed into a class of “cocky”, arrogant Sophomores, with an enviable reputation and a record to live up to in their remaining Junior and Senior years. Mr. Hill, our class advisor and friend in need, has "fathered” us through our Freshman days and helped us in our development as Sophomores through all our school activities. We wish again to recognize his capabilities in guiding the affairs of our school year. The outstanding social event of the year, the prom, was promoted by the second year class. Plans for the prom were carried out under the very efficient leadership of Carvel Morton, prom chairman, and a number of co-operative committees of Sophomores. The gymnasium was transformed into a flying field with the help of the clever brush of Marvin Pratt, who painted scenes of flying on the walls. The ceiling, latticed in graded shades of orange and red, made a fitting background for airplanes in silhouettes. The airport arrangement of the punch service was also an attractive feature. We were especially fortunate in getting Cec Hurst’s Orchestra from the Radisson Hotel. Minneapolis, to furnish the music for the prom dance. The Prom of 1930 will be remembered as one of the most beautiful and successful in the history of the college. Members of our class have made exceptionally good records in athletics, forensics, dramatics, and general leadership. Each time the Wisconsin State Champions of River Falls were crowned. Sophomores claimed high honors. The class has representatives on each of the championship teams in basketball, debate, and dramatics. In athletics, we feel that our outstanding men are the three co-captains of the state championship basketball team. Robert Sutherland. John Schlicht. and Edward Miller, and the captain-elect of the 1930 football team, Arnold Larson. We are especially proud of “Bob,” who was honored as the “quickest man on the basketball floor.” The state championship debate team included two of our outstanding "forensic athletes,” Horace Merrill and William Hawkins. Members of the second year class were on the dramatic team which brought new honor and publicity to River Falls. Margaret Burkholder and Florence Mueller were on the cast of “Just Neighborly,” which won first place in the state dramatic contest at Madison. FifiyNint Pearl Aaby Frederic Ring Amelia Y. W. C.

M, Anderson, Morrow THE SHORT COURSE IN AGRICULTURE John M. May THE department of agriculture offered a short course during the winter term for young men who have not found it possible to take a long course in agriculture. This course was designed particularly for those desiring to become testers for cow testing associations. There is an increasing demand in this state for young men capable of taking charge of these farmer organizations. County agents in nearby counties have frequently sent in requests to the agriculture department, asking for men qualified to do this work, and because of this the members of the agricultural department planned this winter short course. It may be of interest to know the work and responsibilities of those, in charge of cow testing associations. The tester is required to visit each farm once a month, and keep an accurate record of the production, feed cost, and net profit or loss for each cow in the farmer's herd. This information enables the farmer to eliminate all unprofitable animals, thereby increasing his profits. In addition to this, however, the tester must be qualified to give the farmers suggestions and recommendations in regard to the best rations to feed, and other management problems. Farmers are depending a great deal on the help received from these testers and a real opportunity for service is afforded those entering this kind of work. This course began January 6 and closed March I. Fourteen young men enrolled the first day and continued throughout the term. They proved to be a serious minded group, desirous of making the most of their opportunities. Carefully selected courses were offered, including Feeding Dairy Cattle, Testing and Record Keeping. Dairy Cattle Management, and Crop Production. The facilities of the college farm were available and used for a considerable part of the instruction. The aim was to make the course practical and of such a nature as would enable these young men to render real service in their future work with farmers. In addition to the agricultural faculty, assistance was secured from outside men. Mr. Sutton, in charge of testing work for Wisconsin, spent a day with the group, offering much in the way of valuable suggestions. Mr. Seyforth, Pierce County Agent, also gave some assistance. Ninety-EightEXTENSION COURSES James I. Malott THE organization of extension courses has been accomplished this year. It has been the desire of some members of the college faculty for some time to have such a movement launched at the college, as they felt it would give an opportunity for the school to extend its service to teachers in the service in the surrounding communities: but not until last September were any definite steps taken whereby such a service could be given. For several years the college has opened its library facilities to teachers in the communities near it. In this way many teachers have been able to take advantage of the opportunity thus offered. By this means it has extended its service to many teachers now active in the teaching field. The library service has been very valuable but has not rendered the full service that could and should be rendered to the ambitious teacher who is anxious to improve himself professionally and thereby render a greater service to the community in which he works. In order to meet this greater demand there were organized last fall two courses in the department of education which were given at the college to a number of teachers, principals, and one county superintendent. These classes met once a week at the college. Both courses were offered on Thursday. One class met at four each Thursday and remained in session until six or six-thirty. The second class met at seven-thirty and remained in session until nine-thirty. By this arrangement the students were required to take the same number of hours of recitation as in the same courses in the regular sessions. They also had the same library privileges as regular students. Students in these extension courses were required to register in the college and pay a fee in proportion to the work they received credit for. no student being permitted to pay less than one half of the regular fee, nor was any student permitted to take more than about five hours of credit. Thus, the work is made the equivalent of resident work in the college. This spring another class for five hours credit has been organized, and a group of high school teachers and principals, and a county superintendent enrolled. The aim of those members of the faculty who organized this movement is to bring the college and its opportunities to as many teachers in the field as possible. Xiotty-Xint  BEng A' m One of the most valuable phases of college life to the student is the activities in which he engages outside of his curricular studies. In these he learns to work with others for a common interest and to manage his own part in a common enterprise. River Falls has always encouraged and developed as far as possible these activities and is proud of the achievements of her young people in them. One Hundred OneRegistration days! How well we remember them—the bustle and the rush to complete the necessary business in order that we might find time to meet all our old friends and perhaps some newcomers, too. Thus campus life was begun with pep and vigor, and thus it has continued throughout the entire year. The Frosh found themselves caught in a rush during the first two weeks. Can we doubt the sincerity of their school spirit when we glance at these diligent students laboring over an intelligence test? What was the chief excitement during the fall months? Football! Ask the fellows: they went out full force despite the restrictions imposed. Pep manifested itself not only in. the team but in the whole student body and the faculty—fellows not in the game, girls, teachers—in fact, everyone was backing the team with every ounce of strength. It was that spirit behind the fellows that made them eager to win, but school pep was more than just inspiration: it was an asset to every game. Our cheer leaders were always on hand to spur on the enthusiasm of the student body and to direct the spirit and energy of any gathering. One Hundred TWoThe girls, too. got into the field of athletics early. Some of them are shown here in a game of field hockey. The lure of this game never fails to bring out a large group of participants. In fact this game has become organized to such an extent that several teams compete for honors. What a kick that was! Here we see the fellows in action during practice hours. Every day they were out: sometimes the weather conditions seemed almost impossible to cope with, but the team kept at work with the firm intention of winning the season's games. It was not only field work that counted in this, for there were many evenings given over to “chalk talks”. The excitement of that first out-of-town game—the conference game at Eau Claire—filled the whole school with pep and enthusiasm. The corridors in South Hall reverberated with the group yells of "Fight. Team. Fight” and "Rah! Rah! Rah! River Falls”. Students staunchly upheld the old River Falls colors by their acknowledged interest in the game. Before the departure for Eau Claire, the entire school, students and faculty, congregated between North and South Halls and gave the team a hearty send off. Hail! River Falls! Here again we see the boys on the home field. Out HundttJ Thrtt Football is not just a game of victory or defeat for the team—it means more than that. Sometimes during the game men are painfully wounded, but with grit and determination they keep on playing. It is true injuries sometimes occur that are obviously impossible to overcome by even the grimmest determination—broken legs, splintered ankles, fractured arms. Among our players thus injured early in the season were Clair Bartosh, Harry Kotleski, and Walt Hagestad. The incapacity of these men was indeed a severe loss to the team, for everyone of them was a major player. Note these three football veterans with their fellow veteran at Eau Claire, when the boys played there. Bucky, Harry, and Walt accompanied the team on all their out-of-town trips, lending their hearty support to raise the spirits of those playing. Tack Hammer, while playing a strenuous conference game, was unfortunate enough to break his arm. This ended his actual playing for the season. Tack was another excellent player, whose disability was a severe loss to the team. There were others who were crippled temporarily now and then, but with fighting spirit they came through and won victories for River Falls. On Hundred FourHome games were big events at the Falls—excitement ran high. The benches, the sidelines, and cars were always filled with spectators. By the end of the game each one was trying to aid in the winning of the game. In fact, the common phrase explaining a spectator’s enthusiasm, “he had played a pretty good game himself," was truly justifiable to judge by the cheering of the Falls people. Note our cameraman in action. It was due to his untiring efforts that we obtained the many views of the football season. Clever maneuvering on his part resulted in this excellent picture of the team in play. Our college band under the efficient direction of Mr. Schliep turned out at every home game and afforded the musical support which inspired the spectators as well as the team. The ever active G. O. P. members—an organization renowned in school for its sponsorship of pep meetings, pep programs, and pep in every way —usually took charge of the "hot dog" stands at the games. Between halves these stands were especially well patronized. After vigorous shouting and yelling for the team, the students were eager for refreshments. One Hundred FiveThe big event of the fall term was Homecoming—all the “old grads and lads" came back to make the River Falls spirit stronger than ever. This year Homecoming was in October, the twenty-second. On the Friday night before the game, a peppy mass meeting was held in the auditorium. Various speakers were procured from among the former graduates who once played college football here, and other speakers from the faculty were asked to talk. Here again the G. O. P. displayed their usual pep. for the members put on a stunt for the pep program. The girls wore red and white sweaters and skirts and red tarns to carry out the Falls color scheme. After this meeting the whole crowd joined in the torchlight parade. The ultimate end of the march was the bonfire. On the following Saturday morning at ten o’clock the big parade began. For the previous week the various organizations and classes in school had been planning floats for this parade. The band led, followed by the floats. The Freshman class took first prize for the best comic float, while the Y. M. C. A. took first for the best float of a serious character. Other floats were entered by the Y. W. C. A.. G. O. P., Masquers. Rural Life Club, Newman Club, Agrifallians, and the various classes. One Hundred SixPrizes were also awarded for the most appropriately decorated windows in the stores down town. Each student was urged to help decorate his rooming house, and in this case the prize went to the Krueger house. At one o’clock the G. O. P. girls met at North Hall and led the march out to the football field en masse, the others following. There was lusty shouting throughout the march as well as throughout the game. Between halves the students— old and new—joined in the snake dance on the field. An annual event at Homecoming is the G. O. P. banquet, the prime object of which is to welcome old members back. On Saturday evening the students. graduates, faculty, and townspeople attended the Homecoming dance in North Hall gymnasium. The hall was decorated in football regalia. At either end was a goal post—one for River Falls and one for the opposing team in the day's game. Wires were strung across the ceiling from which were suspended red and white footballs. Thus Homecoming proved to be a grand celebration for River Falls, and the new students were given an opportunity to become acquainted with students of former days. One Hundred SevenThe social room in South Hall has been used to especially good advantage this year—teas, lunches, parties, programs, and meetings. However, it served another purpose in November, when a pioneer exhibit was given. Here we have some articles used by the early settlers of River Falls—a spinning wheel, an old chair, beautifully woven spreads, yokes for oxen, a cradle, and others of interest. Then came the Christmas holidays with all their business and gaiety. The week preceding the vacation was especially active; there were parties of all kinds and even a dance or two. Consequently, the students left with happy memories. The weather was mild, and roads were fine, so travel by car was popular. However, the buses and the "try-weekly" accommodated many of us. Two weeks of vacation simply flew by and we were back again—this time for a long session before another break was in view. But there was basketball to take one’s interest, and what a thrilling season! A team composed almost exclusively of new men, but one victory after another until we had won another state championship. One Hundred EightSoon after vacation there was a carnival dance in South Hall. Students turned out well for this party, the informality of which made it especially pleasant. Throughout the winter months dancing seemed to be the main pastime: the debaters and Lincolnians put on a series of informal parties, to which those who attended always looked forward eagerly. Notice the snow. Can we believe now at the time of sunshine and green grass that only a few months ago we were shut in by drifts of snow and zero weather? Can we think that there ever was a time when we hated to venture forth for our eight o’clocks. or even our eight-fifty-fives? The skating rink this year was as popular as ever. Our students have realized that outdoor recreation has its place in winter also. The rink was made possible through the splendid work of Grant Chin-nock and the student social committee. In February there was the annual Meletean Vaudeville. Three or four weeks were spent in preparation for this, and a variety of acts, ranging from a prize fight to a toyshop revue, was the result. There were several dance choruses, solo dances, and vocal and instrumental numbers. On HunJrtJ Sin Mr. Jacobson’s physics classes apparently take science seriously. Notice the shortage of girls in the science department. Life isn't one continual grind, however, for among the most enjoyable events of the year are the parties Mr. Jacobson gives his classes at his home. There ought never be any question about boundary lines on our fair campus, for the way it is surveyed and resurveyed each year must render doubt impossible in case of dispute. We only hope the same conclusion always results. To carry about a transit and the other surveying paraphernalia always seems such an easy and pleasant way to pass away the time, but we know that these young engineers haven’t a snap by any means. In addition to the regular meetings the Y. M. is noted for its many informal gatherings. The annual retreat at the St. Paul Y. M. C. A. Camp always proves to be pleasant and valuable recreation to those who are fortunate enough to attend. There are very often joint meetings with members from other states. Their viewpoints have been most interesting and helpful to our organization. Not less interesting to cabinet members are the discussions held at the home of Mr. Jacobson.The library seems to be the room where students go to study as well as to waste time, visit with their friends, and make plans for good times. Saturday is the regular business day for the library. Students have more determination to study then because the hours are short, anyway. Practice teaching—what fun for the practice teacher on cold winter mornings, but she must practice what she preaches. Therefore, we note some of last winter’s practice teachers out with their pupils enjoying the frosty morning recess. Practice teachers not only learn how to teach most efficiently, but they also learn how to work with their pupils in outside activities —they plan Hallowe'en parties. Thanksgiving parties, and Christmas programs. The art room is one of the most attractive rooms in the college. Under the supervision of Miss Greene, art director, the very arrangement of the materials and articles in this room is an education in itself. Mr. Prucha’s office has been the scene for many discussions, agricultural and otherwise. Aside from these few moments of leisure after office hours, we find it a very busy place during the entire year. One Hundred ElevenPictures taken while students are in class always make them appear very attentive. Perhaps they realize the advisability of such attention. Winter had its bright side, too. For one thing there was the annual G. O. P. formal. The cold and frosty outside atmosphere was reproduced in the decorations which depicted a winter scene with suspended snow drops and icicles, barren branches and twigs, huge frosty icebergs, and a kind of winter moonlight. The next outstanding social event was the “R” Club formal early in March. What made this party exceptionally gay was that the team had just the night before defeated Superior to be proclaimed 1000 per cent champions. Former "R" Club members were invited to return and take part in the festivities. Can we remember that stupendous announcement made in assembly which concerned the banquet for the Y. M. C. A. cabinet officials? That was the initiation meeting for the new cabinet—it surely must have been a great success, if a feast means anything toward success. Do you recall quite distinctly that wonderful dessert—or was it a flight of imagination—the four or five layers of cake and filling, topped with whipped cream? One Hundred TwelveAnd then came the news that “Just Neighborly”, the Masquers contest play, had won first place at Madison. These victories meant a victory day celebration the following Monday. A committee on a victory day program produced entertainment for the entire Monday afternoon. It was thus that the team was shown appreciation. The afternoon concluded with a parade down town and some group yells on street corners. The gaiety was carried over into the evening in the form of an all-school dance—a continual tag affair. This brought out the largest crowd of any of the dances of the year. Everyone wanted to join in the fun of the celebration. At this time it was also decided to award the members of the team with gold basket balls. Was that the usual “blue Monday” we so often hear about? No! It was one of the brightest days we have had: everyone was happy despite the weather conditions. The remainder of that week was very unsteady and unbalanced. Between celebrating a victory, attending the high school basket ball tournament, and writing term exams—what was the effect on the student? Well, everybody was apparently glad that there were a few days between terms in which to recuperate from such strenuous days. One Hundred ThirteenWith the beginning of spring came the third term with its spring football and baseball. Football proved very popular —a large number of men went out and prospects for the season next year looked bright. Tennis and golf leaped to the foreground of interest also. Another sure sign of spring is the promenades of the foreign language classes with Mr. Whitenack, and the field trips in Mr. Stratton’s and Mr. Vogele’s classes. And then another championship! Our debate squads, after a splendid season, came out triumphant and won another first place. River Falls is immensely proud of its three victories this year. In order to pay tribute to the basketball team, the dramatic cast, and the debate squads, and their coaches, who have worked that these results might be attained, a banquet was held to celebrate the victories with the victors. It was a fine get-together. LeRoy Lu-berg acted as toastmaster, and, interspersed with song, we told the victors and their coaches how proud we were of them and how much we appreciated them, and they told us how glad they were to do it and how they appreciated what we were doing for them. On Hundred FourteenThe music contest, an annual spring event under the direction of Mr. Geere, always proves entertaining as well as educational. This year twenty-seven high schools in this district competed, and over eight hundred young musicians took part. Noise reigned supreme for three days, and then the honors were awarded at the final concert given by the victors. At this concert the college orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Schliep, presented some very fine numbers. The annual prom, given by the Sophomore class, was the social event of the spring term and a great success. North Hall gymnasium was transformed into a great airplane hangar with the airline of the airports of the world painted in silhouette along the walls—silhouettes of airplanes, skyscrapers, balloons, dirigibles. In the other decorations a color scheme of yellow was used—pale yellows shading into flame orange. The regular baseball season opened, and there were many volunteers. Although football and basketball seem to have a stronger grip on the interest of the students, still they turned out to baseball games unusually well—again that old River Falls spirit. One Hundred FifteenAnd so on to commencement and the end of 1929-1930. It is also the end of college days and campus life for many of us. Accompanied by many good wishes and much good advice we say good-bye to our Alma Mater and go our several ways, but always firmly fixed in our minds are the memories of happy days at River Falls. One Hundred SixteenATHLETICSTHE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT UNDER the direction of the athletic council the athletic department at River Falls has enabled every man in school to engage in some phase of athletics. This forward looking policy has been ably carried out by R. A. Karges. president of the athletic council, E. A. Whitenack. treasurer, and E. J. Prucha and W. H. Hunt, directors. Besides equipping our athletic teams with the best available supplies, they have sponsored the highest brand of athletics at River Falls. Their untiring efforts have been responsible for the varied and extensive program of intra-mural athletics between school organizations and classes, as well as the high school basketball tournament and annual track meet. Two state championships in basketball and two football teams that have twice finished second is the remarkable record established by Coach Klandrud during the two years he has coached at River Falls. His high school record was equally impressive. At the River Falls High School his basketball team won the district tournament three successive years, and finished fourth and second in the state finals. His football teams were just as successful. The last year he coached a team that was one of the two undefeated elevens in the state, teams of such high calibers as La Crosse. Eau Claire, and Central High of Minneapolis, being victims of his well versed eleven. By organizing class and organization teams in basketball, baseball, swimming, and tennis he has not only offered every man an opportunity for physical training, but much valuable material for varsity teams has been developed. Coach Klandrud is a leader in the new athletic policy which places the premium on sportsmanship and clean athletics. He has done much to bring this about by the sterling qualities which mark him as a builder and trainer of men. R. A. KARGES John MacDonald leRoy Luberg One Hundred EighteenTHE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT His friendly way, sincere manner, and remarkable method of handling players has gained for him the deepest respect and admiration of every man on the team, as well as the entire student body. Ably assisting Coach Klandrud were "Bong” Luberg and John MacDonald, two stars on the Red and White elevens for the last three years. "Bong" developed a scrappy, fast-charging line that more than held its own with every team it met. "Mac" had charge of the backfield men and under his able tutorage River Falls had two complete backfields that were versatile, speedy, and had a lot of punch and power. This year much of the success of our teams was due to our managers. Their long hours of hard work and faithful service were of untold value to the team. Yet few receive as little credit for their work and responsibility as do the managers. Earl McLaughlin and Mike Nelson, managers of our football and basketball teams, worked with the teams from the first practice till long after the final game and deserve much praise for their untiring efforts. School spirit and support of school teams depends largely upon the cheer leaders who have the enthusiasm, vigor, and devotion to spur the student body on to a high pitch of loyalty. Leonard Madison, with his "Are you ready, gang?” and Gorden Bohn with his characteristic enthusiasm did their share in arousing and maintaining that traditional River Falls fighting spirit, which has carried many teams to victory in crucial games. Their co-operation at basketball and football games, and assembly exercises has been a big factor in promoting the fighting spirit of the Red and White teams.

Because only four lettermen from the great crimson team of last year returned, the Red and White team was termed the "dark horse eleven” of the conference race. Leading the Red and White eleven was the inspiring fullback. Captain Alfonse. who was unanimously selected on the All State Eleven. Teamed with "Al” was the hard charging Captain-elect Larson at halfback. Johnny Schlicht. who played both quarter and half, completed the trio of backfield lettermen returning. The only line veteran to return was "Bucky" Bartosh, but a broken ankle before the Eau Claire game, kept him out for the season. Injuries were numerous throughout the year. Walter Hagestad, a speedy halfback, was out for the season with a broken ankle, and "Tack” Hammer’s fractured arm kept him on the sidelines after the Superior game. In addition Helixon and Kotleski, regular ends, were handicapped much of the season with wrenched knees. Two preliminary games, one with Carleton and the other with St. Olaf, gave the Red and White eleven their pre-season experience. CAPTAIN ALFONSE One Hundred TwentyTHE 1929 SEASON In these games Coach Klandrud’s eleven showed flashes of great power and indicated that as they developed into a smooth working team they would furnish a threat to All-Conference contenders. With the start of the conference season Eau Claire was trounced 18-0, and Stout followed in the wake of our victorious march when they were defeated 20-0. By virtue of their strong passing game the Superior Yellowjackets triumphed over Klandrud’s warriors by a score of 12-6 in a hard fought battle in the third game of the season. The next week the Red and White were still below par and Milwaukee succeeded in handing the Falls gridders their last defeat of the season by a 13-7 count. But. as the last echo of deated shoes resounded from Ramer Field, the Red and White team closed the season in a blaze of glory, when Captain Alfonse intercepted a lateral pass to beat our jinx. La Crosse, to the tune of 7-0. Letters were awarded to eighteen players: Captain Alfonse. Captain-elect Larson. Schlicht. Sutherland. Klimper. Warwick. Dawson, Hammer. La Dusire. Gerhardt. Krueger. Sirianni. Junchen. Claflin. Hemp. Lee. Helixon. and Wile. v-AHTAlN-i_LECT LARSON On HurrJetJ I K mvOr RIVER FALLS 18, EAU CLAIRE 0 CHOWING unexpected strength, the River Falls eleven opened the conference grid season by swamping the veteran Eau Claire aggregation 18-0. Never was the Red and White goal in danger. Eau Claire made but four first downs during the game, only one of which was made through the Falls line. The feature of the game was the sentinel playing of the River Falls reserves. Over thirty men were used in the battle and their performance under fire assured Coach Klandrud that his team would not be lacking in relief strength. Through an exchange of punts River Falls gained possession of the pigskin near midfield. After Klimper and Captain Alfonse battered the Eau Claire line for two first downs, a pretty 35-yard pass. Sutherland to Wile, placed the ball on the Eau Claire 3-yard line. On the next play "Al" escorted the pigskin over for the first touchdown of the season. Just before the half ended, a clever pass, Dawson to Schlicht, placed the ball on the 1-yard line, and Hammer hurdled the line for the second marker of the game. As the third quarter started, two elusive 20-yard jaunts by Dawson enabled Alfonse to slide off-tackle for the last touchdown of the game. Junchen Klimper Schlicht One Hundred Tuftitly-TwoRIVER FALLS 21, STOUT 0 21-0 in favor of River Falls was the result of the second conference game of the season with Stout. A wet field hampered the playing of both teams and resulted in many penalties and fumbles. Captain Alfonse. the plunging Crimson fullback, played a great game. The whistle had hardly blown when Hemp crashed through tackle and blocked a Stout punt on the Red and White 20-yard line. "Ar carried the ball over in three tries and added the extra point when he place-kicked the pigskin squarely between the uprights. Again in the second quarter through the hurricane efforts of Alfonse. River Falls made five first downs, and “Al” plunged over from the 9-yard line with the second touchdown of the game. The extra point was added when he plowed through the center of Stout’s line to make the score 14-0 as the half ended. The Falls scored again in the last quarter when Schlicht eluded all but the safety man for a 15-yard jaunt, after recovering a Stout fumble on the Red and White 25-yard line. Klimpcr, who had played a great game all afternoon, cut off tackle for the last touchdown and booted the final point with a perfect drop-kick.

The game was very keenly contested and it was one of the best exhibitions of football ever displayed on Ramer Field. The Red and White team rose to great heights in outplaying their opponents. They not only made fourteen first downs to Superior’s ten. but they tore the veteran Yellow jacket line to shreads. making one hundred seventy yards to Superior’s sixty-five from the line of scrimmage-The Norsemen started the scoring when they recovered a fumble on their own 40-yard line. and. aided by a 25-yard pass. Segel bucked over for the first touchdown. But the fighting Falls eleven came right back. In the second quarter Hemp ripped through the Superior line to block a punt which Hammer recovered on the Yellow jacket’s 8-yard line. Aided by splendid interference on the part of Alfonsc, who played a sensational game, Larson cut through tackle to even the score on the first play. However, Superior could not be denied. Late in the third a long run by Hcndricson and a 20-yard pass to MacGettigan placed them in position to score the winning touchdown on a reverse play. natter Ont llunditJ TuJirtiu-FourRIVER FALLS 7. MILWAUKEE 13 A 13-7 victory gave the Milwaukee Peds revenge for the 20-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of Klandrud’s warriors last year. Neither team did its scoring until the last quarter, although each had many opportunities. In the second quarter Sutherland was called out of bounds on a questionable decision when he eluded the entire Milwaukee team for a 50-yard run over their goal line. Great playing on the part of the Crimson line held Milwaukee for four downs after a pass had placed the ball on the River Falls 5-yard line early in the first quarter. Launching a strong passing attack coupled with end runs the Milwaukeeans were able to push over the first touchdown at the start of the fourth quarter. But the Red and White came right back when a 50-yard run by Dawson through the entire Milwaukee team placed the pigskin on the 4-yard line, from which position "Al" plowed through to tie the score. However, with less than two minutes to play the Peds elected to receive. They completed seven plays, five of which were passes, to score the touchtown that ended the fray just before the whistle blew. Hemp Gerhardt lee Onr Hundred Twetuu-FiveRIVER FALLS 7, LA CROSSE 0 DISPLAYING the best football of the year. River Falls routed the La Crosse jinx when they forced the "Keelerites" to take the short end of a 7-0 score. The home boys completely outplayed the Maroon and Gray in all phases of the game. Besides making thirteen first downs to their opponents' six. River Falls gained two hundred twenty-five yards from scrimmage while the best La Crosse could do was eighty. At no time in the game was La Crosse nearer than the 30-yard line, while on four different occasions the Red and White threatened the southerners’ goal from within their 10-yard line. Captain Alfonse's performance at both end and fullback was outstanding. The tide of battle changed at the start of the second half when "Al” sensationally intercepted a lateral pass on the La Crosse 20-yard line. After Schlicht made first down on the 7-yard line, Dawson carried the pigskin over for the winning touchdown. The long spiral punts that left Helixon’s toe did much to keep the ball deep in La Crosse territory. The steady passing of Gerhardt coupled with the consistent work of Sirianni and Claflin. did much to win the game and close the season successfully.

Zeddies Onr Hundred Twtntu-StvmSPRING FOOTBALL SPRING football has become a regular part of the athletic program at River Falls. Not only does the practice enable the coach to drill his men on the fundamentals of the game, but many pigskin aspirants arc given an opportunity to show their stuff. This enables Coach Klandrud to line up his players and plan his attack for the coming season. After three weeks of intensive practice, during which thirty members of last year's squad and ten new men reported, the squad was divided into two teams. Captain "Arnie” Larson, speedy, hard hitting halfback, led the Whites, while Johnny Schlicht. triple threat quarterback, directed the Reds for the annual battle with their traditional rivals. When Peterson, the Cumberland flash, skirted the Reds’ left end from the 15-yard line in the second quarter, the tide of battle shifted in favor of the Whites. Again in the third quarter Larson put the game on ice when he intercepted a Red pass on their own 25-yard line and raced unmolested for a second touchdown, making the final score 12-0 in favor of the Whites. New players and old players at new positions were watched with interest as the two teams lined up. Peterson from Cumberland, and Pauling from Amery showed a lot of speed and drive in the backfield. Woodward and Johnson from the local high school have shown a lot of promise at end and guard respectively. “Bucky” Bartosh and Kotleski. both held back by injuries last year, demonstrated that they will be hard men to keep off the regular squad. In addition. Holstrum has been shifted from guard to tackle and has shown a lot of fight and flash at this position. With such a galaxy of football material for next year and with fifteen lettermen returning, prospects for the coming season look very good. Much of the success of spring football at River Falls has been due to the capable assistance of two former stars who have made football history for Red and White teams. "Bong” Luberg, an aggressive guard who coached the line last fall, directed the Reds, while John MacDonald, stellar halfback and coach of last year’s shifty and clever backfield men. directed the practice of the victorious Whites. On Hundred Tuseniy-Eigh:PROSPECTS NEVER did River Falls receive such a galaxy of football material as this year. With only Captain Alfonse and Klimper graduating, prospects for 1930 look exceptionally good. Besides thirteen first year lettermen. there will be four junior lettermen returning. The entire line, which was a feature of both the Red and White offensive and defensive play throughout the season, is composed entirely of first year men and will be back intact next year. Gerhardt, who was selected on the all-conference second team, played center in veteran style. Krueger, a scrappy player, and Sirianni, who proved a tower of strength in the line where they flanked Gerhardt at guard, are both first year lettermen. In addition, Bartosh and Junchen, both lettermen. as well as Ditt-brenner. will be back fighting for the guard positions. Claflin. who was selected on the all-conference second team, and Hemp, who received honorable mention, were the regular freshmen tackles. Lee. another letterman. completed the trio of first year tackles. At ends Wile, the Cameron flash, and Helixon. who also earned a place on the all-conference second team, will return next year for their second year of competition. In addition. La Dusire and Hammer. reformed backfield men who have two years to play, finished the season at end. With twelve lettermen returning and all but two having two more years of varsity competition. River Falls is assured of a fast, hard-charging line that will make plenty of trouble for all opponents in seasons to come. But the Red and White backfield was also blessed with six first year letter-men whose performance was outstanding. Dawson, a deceptive passer and elusive runner, was a regular halfback. Warwick, another freshman, was both an exceptional passer and a dangerous open field runner. La Dusire, who finished the season at end. can give a very creditable account of himself as a blocking back, and Hammer, who likewise finished the year at end. was considered the hardest driving fullback on the squad. Besides. Walter Hagestad, a speedy, hard-driving back, will also make a strong bid for a regular berth next year. Much of the credit for the season's success should go to Robert Sutherland, the triple threat quarterback, who shared that post with the veteran. Johnny Schlicht. In addition to these freshman stars. John Schlicht. regular quarter or halfback, and the fastest man on the squad, will return, as will Captain-elect Larson, the best tackier and most consistent player on the team.

Warwick, Sutherland BASKETBALL WITH the passing of the four main cogs of the 1929 team, the Falls possibilities for an outstanding record this season seemed slight. Co-captains Schlieht, Sutherland, and Miller were the foundation for this year’s team, being the only lettermcn back. Alfonse at guard, and Krueger playing forward both had had experience on the squad. However, when roll was taken, a world of new material answered the call. Such men as Johnson, rangy sharpshooting forward from Staples. Minnesota; Ed Warwick, Barron's high scoring forward in the Heart of the Lakes Conference: Helixon, another one of Marshfield's great contributions to River Falls athletics: La Dusire, all-state forward from Wausau: and Berven, center from Spring Valley, high scorer in the district, came forward to round out the team. Preliminary games with neighboring town teams showed doubtful signs of success. Then a trip into Minnesota to Gus-tavus and St. Olaf proved fatal. The return game with St. Olaf showed much improvement. Coming back after Christmas with a spirit of success, the Falls team marched to State Championship by winning fourteen consecutive games. One Hundred ThirtuTHE 1930 SEASON The Red and White decisively downed Macalester twice and Concordia once. The Falls were forced to the limit to down Concordia in the second game, when two overtime periods were played. The Marshfield town team, composed of all college stars, was turned back by Klandrud's men 45-20. when they ran up a 20-point lead in the first quarter. Cumberland’s pride team was trounced 40-29. The conference race was rather unique on the part of the Falls. This practically new team came through eight combats with no defeats. Three of these victories were won from Stout. Eau Claire, and La Crosse by a one-point margin. However, in the return games the Red and White cagcrs outclassed their opponents. When the River Falls team had played six games, they were assured of State Championship even if they should lose to Eau Claire and Superior in the last two. Coach Klandrud this year showed his true ability as a coach when he welded together this group of Freshmen into one of the greatest teams that has ever represented River Falls on the basketball floor. Co-Captain Miller On Handled 'Tbitla-OneRIVER FALLS 21, EAU CLAIRE 20 Co-Captain Sutherland the air, Eau Claire dropped through a the opening conference game of the year. RIVER FALLS. after losing three and winning one non-conference games fom Minnesota college quints, entered the conference race with Eau Claire on the home floor. River Falls' hopes for championship were not very bright with practically a Freshman squad, with the exception of the cocaptains, Schlicht, Sutherland and Miller. Early in the game Eau Claire took the lead and at the half held an eight-point margin. Bcrven made a free throw, and Sutherland got a bucket for the Falls' only scores in the first half. The Red and White were trailing 11-3 at the half. At the outset of the second half. River Falls fell further behind. The opponents sank another field goal. River Falls rallied in the last half of the game to overcome her handicap and gain a lead of 18-21 in the last four minutes. The leader of the rally again was "Stretch” Miller. The Eau Claire team found difficulty in guarding the local quint and "Stretch.” towering above them all. sank three field goals and two free throws. Warwick, with his knack of being where the ball is under the basket and open, found the hoop for two counters. In the closing seconds of the game, when the gun was in field goal, only to be defeated by one point. 20-21. in RIVER FALLS 36, LA CROSSE 33 RIVER FALLS defeated its next conference opponent. La Crosse, by what seemed to be an unbelievable rally in the last ten minutes. By so doing she remained one of the thousand percent teams of the Teachers College Conference with two games to her credit. The game started fast with high scoring and many personals. La Crosse scored an eight-point lead at the outset of the game. The invading Falls retaliated with six points, which was the closest the Red and White bronght their score to that of La Crosse until the final quarter. The half ended with River Falls bolding the light side of a 14-17 score. At the beginning of the second half the La Crosse team started their rally for what seemed sure victory, every man on the La Crosse team count-; ing five points apiece, bringing the score at the beginning of the closing period to 20-30. The team then becoming inspired by the necessity of winning this game in order to win the state championship, entered the final quarter with a powerful offense. The Falls ontscorcd the Kellerites 16-3 in that final quarter. Helixon led this sensational rally, scoring nine points in ten minutes. Sutherland was put out in the final minutes on personals. Schlicht was out before the first half was up. The team consisting of Freshmen, with the exception of "Stretch." continued the rally. Berven tied the count at 32 all. In the closing moments Warwick and Helixon clinched the game with a field goal apiece. The team came through in true River Falls style. It is this "never-say-die.” fighting spirit that in the past has made River Falls' teams feared by all their opponents. This game again proved the old statement of "a team that won't be beat can't be beat. ' Al.FONSE On Hundrtd Thirtu-TaoRIVER FALLS 29, STOUT 21 THE Red and While baskeicers journeyed to Stout highly doped to win and retain their lead in the Teachers Conference by adding the third basketball laurel to the crown of Alma Mater. The game was exciting all the way through, and was won by the supreme basket making ability of Co-Captain Miller. "Stretch." the towering center extending six feet six inches upwards, was the constant threat under the basket. He made fourteen of the twenty-nine points for the Falls, making six field counters and two counters from the foul line. Stout succeeded in making twenty-one points. The first half of the game was c'.ose. with neither team holding a comfortable margin. Peterson. Stout's flashy forward, made three field goals in this period to offset the three Miller made. The score at the half was 15-13 in favor of the invading Palls quint. The second half saw the weakening Stout team break under the powerful offense of the Palls’ hot-shots. Sutherland. Schlicht. and Warwick, led by "Stretch" Miller. The Red and White five tightened their defensive game. Stout could manage to get only three field WARWICK goals and three free throws, while the touted Peterson remained harmless on the score book. During this time "Stretch" counted seven points, while Sutherland. Warwick, and Schlicht each added a basket from play. RIVER FALLS 20, SUPERIOR 16 THE Superior Yellow-Jackets, with championship aspirations, invaded our camp with the determination to break through the invulnerable River Falls team for a victory. This they fell short of by four points, the Palls five emerging victorious by a score of 20-16. The Red and White defense reached its true form in this game. Starting with the opening whistle, evey Superior man was covered. Sutherland, as usual, received the tough assignment. Mestnick was well handled by Schlicht. Helixon's man. Collins, remained scoreless. Miller and Warwick kept the Superior sentinels from scoring, except for a long shot by Horyza. Superior, after the first few minutes, had an equally good defense. "Stretch" Miller was watched like a hawk. He was able to make only one tip-in in the first few minutes. There were only three field goals made in the last half, two by Superior and one by Sutherland of the Palls. Before the crowd had settled in their seats after the opening whistle, the local five started bombarding the basket to pile up a 12-2 lead. During the remainder of the half. Mestnick. Kean, and Horyza were dropping in long shots to bring the score to the more even terms of 14-10 at the half. Mestnick opened the scoring of the second half with the one tip-in of the half. Sutherland made a field goal and Schlicht a pair of free throws, enabling the Cardinals to remain aloft after the final rally of Superior, which brought them within three points of the Falls score. In the closing seconds Warwick sewed the game with a free throw. The final gun found River Palls alone on top of the Teachers College Conference. Ok HunJitJ Thinv-ThsttRIVER FALLS 17, LA CROSSE 16 IN a very closely scored but rather poorly played game. River Falls came through for the second one-point victory when they trounced La Crosse 17-16. The defense of the Falls was again the factor that saved the day. The La Crosse five were successful during the first period, and only the fighting spirit of the Red and White quintet saved the day and brought the victory. Kraft, the rangy center from La Crosse, opened the scoring with a field goal to which the Cardinals quickly retaliated with a long, fast pass from Schlicht to Johnson, who made a neat pot shot. Juel and Cashman of La Crosse came right back, and each counted from play, besides a free throw apiece. This left the Falls five trailing the downstaters 9-2. Sutherland dropped in a long shot, and Berven counted from the foul line to leave the score at the half 9-5. With the exception of Schlicht. the local lineup was changed when the second half opened. Both teams fought desperately, but a strong defense on both sides kept the score low. A free throw by Schlicht and a basket by Helixon were marked up. while La Crosse brought their score to 14. At this point "Suthy." "Ed" Johnson, and "Stretch" went in. and the fireworks started. Schlicht and Miller each counted from play. It was Johnson who came through with a basket in the closing moments to win the game. This left River Falls the only undefeated five in the conference race. RIVER FALLS 25, STOUT 24 ANEW and fighting line-up from Stout faced Klandrud's men in the return game at River Falls. The game proved to be one of the three one-point victories of the year for River Falls, when they were driven desperately to score a 25-24 victory. The defense of the Red and White five was not working properly in this game. They allowed Stout many easy tries at the basket. The Falls offense broke through the stout defense consistently, but to little avail, as the local cagers seemed to be off on their shots. In spite of this we succeeded in scoring 13 points in the first half to 10 points made by Stout. In the second half the game proved to be nearly fatal for River Falls. Haas. Peterson, and Cvengvos. Stout's hot shots, started sinking long shots at will. Tip-ins and side shots were made regularly. During the last half the Stout men counted seven field goals to bring their score to 24. Again it was Helixon and his basket-making ability that kept the Red and White cagers on top. He made three field goals in the last half. The Falls, thinking they had the game well sewed up in the final minutes, started the stall game. Two neat long range goals by Stout put River Falls in a precarious position. They remained in possession of the ball until the final gun. giving them six conference wins in six games. Coach Burbridge. the athletic director at Stoat, showed us in this game that hereafter members of the Teachers College Conference would find Stout teams offering stubborn opposition. KRUEGER One Hundred Thirty-FtRIVER FALLS 35, EAU CLAIRE 21 JOURNEYING to Eau Claire, the Cardinals played championship caliber basketball to swamp the midstaters in a deluge of baskets and cinch the undisputed state championship title by a score of 35-21. There was no outstanding star in this stellar contest. Each man had his share of the glory in both the offense and defense. Hclixon made 8 points. Miller made 7. Sutherland and Warwick each scored 8 points, and Schlicht made 3. Warwick started the offense, scoring a charity shot, but Eggleston retaliated with another for Eau Claire. Close guarding by Helixon and Schlicht held twenty-point Eggleston to only five points. Sutherland tipped in a nice field goal, but it was followed by a free throw and an under-the-basket shot to give Eau Claire their only lead of the game of one point. The second half was as gloomy for Eau Claire as the first, with the exception of a few minutes in the middle of the half, when the midstaters started a rally which cut down the Falls lead to eleven points. The final gun found the Klandrudmen emerging gloriously with the second State Championship basketball team under the two years of Coach Klandrud’s reign of sports. This was a very good record, since the team this year was composed of practically all Freshmen. They developed into one of the traditional invulnerable River Falls teams. RIVER FALLS 32, SUPERIOR 28 SUPERIOR, not having lost a home game in three years, was determined to continue their record by breaking through for a win from the undefeated River Falls team. Equally as determined were Klandrud’s five from the Falls that "Fights and Wins.” As a result of this great rivalry between schools and the perfect co-ordination of each team, one of the best games that has been played in Wisconsin "Peer competition was exhibited. The Superior foward wall was held down by "the sweetest pair of guards seen in this section." Schlicht and Helixon. who held the famed Mcstnich and Collins to a single field goal apiece the last half. Warwick, Sutherland, and La Dusire each held their men. "Sammy” Kaufman and Horyza. to two free shots apiece in the first half and two field goals in the second half. “Stretch” and Berven allowed the fast Superior center. Kernan. only one free throw during the game. The game was played on even terms the first quarter. In the second and third quarter the game appeared to be nearly a rout for the Red and White. Superior Yellowjackets were outscored 15-1 in the two quarters and enjoyed a score of 20-14 at the half. At the end of the third quarter with the score 28-15 in favor of the undefeatable Falls team. Sutherland and Miller went out on personals. This did not spell defeat: but rather, when the gun closed the season. River Falls bad broken the record of Superior's clean home games and remained undefeated in -the conference race. This game proved River Falls four points better than Superior. It dosed a season of seventeen games, with the Alma Mater winning the last fourteen games besides making the eighth state championship basketball team in eleven years.

Warner, Kotletki. Aliontt BASEBALL BASEBALL has been reinstated as a major sport at River Falls. This year the new baseball and football field was finished, making an ideal diamond, and practice was started at the close of the spring football season. Coach Klandrud began looking over his material for men to formulate a new nine. The graduation of the stars on last year's team left the coach a presumably difficult task. He soon found, however, that he had a wealth of material at his disposal. Nyht, veteran hurler from previous years, added strength to the Falls mound staff, while the capable Kahl completed the batteries. The batting of Helixon and Kotlcski was a great asset to the team. The fielding of Larson was outstanding throughout the year. Peterson played good ball at first. With Alfonse at short stop and Vuchetich at second, the infield was invulnerable. A game was scheduled with the Hudson city team and one with the Ells-worth team. The local nine easily defeated Hudson 7-9. The game with Ellsworth was very slow, with poor playing on both sides marked with many errors. The game ended in a victory for River Falls. These games were primarily to condition the team for the game with Concordia on May third. Concordia was one of the big teams among the Minnesota Colleges. The Minnesota aggregation came here after having trounced the touted St. Olaf team and scoring a decisive victory over the "U” of Minnesota. The game with Concordia was a complete victory for River Falls. Every man on the Red and White nine played faultless ball. There was only one error made by the local team. Nyht. the regular pitcher, pitched a shut out game, striking out eleven men. KabI kept the invading nine from stealing bases by his stellar catching. Both infield and outfield men played in “pro" style. Nothing passed the infield men on the ground, and when the ball did pass in the air. an outfielder was under it. Larson went back to the stands to snare one and rob the visitors of a home run. The athletics of the year at River Falls were gracefully climaxed by the brilliant showing made by the baseball team. On Hundred Thirty-SixSWIMMING THIS year saw the advent of a new form of competitive athletics at River Falls. Although the pool at the college is three years old. this is the first year that we have competed with any outside schools. Everyone in school uses the tank, because it is necessary to be able to swim to get full credits in physical education. A preliminary to the triangular tank meets with Stout and Eau Claire was held in the form of a class meet. The class swimming meet was very closely contested by the Freshmen and the Sophomores. The Freshmen held a slight advantage with the score at the end. Freshmen 39, Sophomores 35, Juniors 9, and Seniors 1. Hammer was the outstanding star of the meet when he placed first for the Sophomores in three of the six individual events, the plunge, the 40-yard freestyle, and the 40-yard backstroke. Krueger gave the “Sophs” another first when he made the best dives of the day. Hill gave the Sophomores the fifth first place out of six events when he swam the 80-yard free style to place ahead of Woolworth. Bartosh of the Juniors placed first in the 80-yard breast stroke. All this time the “Frosh" were piling up points by placing all the second and third prizes. Then in both relays, the 80-yard and the 160-yard, which counted ten points each, the “Frosh" placed firsts to win the class meet. From the talent found in the class meet the coach picked a team to compete in a triangular meet at Stout with Eau Claire and Stout. The local men were not very well organized when they journeyed to Stout; as a result the Falls mermen were decisively outclassed. In a return meet at River Falls on April 14 the Falls swimmers were again defeated. This time "Bucky” Bartosh placed first in the 40-yard free style and piloted the Red and White medley trio to victory with the aid of Earl Bartosh and John Hammer. The record made by River Falls in the first year of competition in swimming was better than could be expected when one considers the talent with which they were competing. The Red and White prospects for next year look bright, with Bartosh and Hammer coming back to form the nucleus of the 1931 team and the new material that is always discovered among the Freshmen. 0 1 llundtttl Thirty-StemTENNIS THE one spot on our beautiful campus which contributes more than any other to the outdoor life of both the men and women students of the school is the tennis court. There are always some persons playing and generally the four courts are filled to capacity during the fall and spring months. Tennis is one of the games that adds to the democracy of our school. Here we find the professors and freshmen matching their skill. In fact, the professors enjoy the game to such an extent that one court is cared for and used primarily by the faculty. The courts this spring have been worked into excellent condition. Last spring new backstops were put up to replace the old wood backstops. The 1930 spring tournament promises to be the most hotly contested we have had in recent years with such men as Vuchetich. Runkle. Prof. May. Prof. Prucha. and Prof. Williams measuring their skill. Runkle Karges vogele Out Hundttd Thir-.y EifhiGOLF ANEW form of inter-collegiate athletics was initiated into the "Ped” Conference this year. Golf is now the outstanding minor sport in school. During the winter, and when it was impossible to be on the course, aspiring Hagens found vent for their feelings in the basement of North Hall. A small fee was charged each golfer and a driving net was purchased. On the second of May a team, consisting of John Hammer. Richard Quinn. Frank Vuchetich, and Cecil La Dusire represented River Falls at Menomonic in a triangular meet with Stout and Eau Claire. One man from each school entered in each three, making four groups of three. The one that won the hole received one point and the one that made the low score on the round made one point. When the points were added up. the Falls four were trailing Stout by a score of 15-11. leaving Eau Claire 4. Return matches were held at each school and in each event the local men made creditable showing. May Klandrud Schlicht Om HunJtfJ Tkittw-s,THE ORGANIZATION LEAGUE SHORTLY after King Basketball mounted bis throne, eleven basketball teams were formed in order to give nearly every man in school a chance to play some basketball. Under the able direction of LeRoy Luberg the organization league proved to be the most exciting and closely contested of any intra-mural activities. Every team lost one game and every team won two g mes. When “Bong” made his call in assembly for organization teams to Report, he also included any group of fellows who were organized into a team. As a result of this he found three house teams and one independent team competing for the honors. ’ At the opening of the tournament it looked as if there would be a triple tie for first place after each team had played-'each other once. The Y. M. C. A., the Newman Club, and the “Ag” Seniors had teams composed for the most part of members who had some experience on the varsity squad. These teams met some unforeseen obstacles. The “Y” defeated the Newman Club, 26-12, in the first game of the tournament, giving them their only defeat. The cafeteria brought forth a team against the "Y” that handed the Y. M. C. A. their only defeat by a score of 15-12. The "Ag” Seniors were robbed of their championship aspirations when they were defeated four times; once in three overtime periods by the Gypsy Rovers, and by both the “Christian” teams. The Cafeteria dropped three games to the Newman Club, Ag Seniors, and to the Gypsy Rovers. The percentages of the games of the teams were no indication of the close games that were played. The Line’s lost several games by one point margins and nearly upset the highly heralded "Y” men by a score of 24-17. The independent Black Hawk team was composed of an elite group of ball players most of whom came from the local high school. They were successful in five of the ten attempts, holding the middle post in the percentage column. There were too many entrants from the Ag department, so it was necessary to organize three teams, making a Senior team, a Freshman team, and a Short Course team. At the close of the tournament the two religious organizations held an even percentage. This was played off at the Annual Carnival on April 2. The Y. M. C. A. again decisively trimmed the Newman Club to win the high honors. Bohn Madison Hbiting Ont Hundetd FortyWOMEN'S ATHLETICSTHE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Olton, lAntban Chinnoth. Farrell.

Hunt HTHE purpose of the Women's Athletic Association is to encourage participation of all girls in school in physical activity of some sort, to recognize ability of girls in organized sports, and to promote and further support worthwhile activities. Other aims of the Association are obedience to the rules of personal hygiene and the promotion of interest in topics bearing on women's athletic activities and sports. The Women's Athletic Association has always maintained high standards. This is especially true of the qualifications governing the membership of the association. In order to become a member of the Women's Athletic Association, one must have an average of “C." To maintain her membership in the organization, each girl must earn twenty-five points in a term, and have no more than two un-excuscd absences in a term. This year several girls have earned their sweaters. In order to receive this sweater each girl must have earned five hundred points. Points are earned through participation in athletic contests, hiking, swimming, skiing, and observation of health rules. MARY LOUISE BRANSTAD One Hundred Form-TwoTHE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION TN addition to the benefits which A are reaped from the organization the girls enjoy many social functions during the year. It is not an uncommon sight to see the girls start out on hikes after school. These hikes often terminate in wiener roasts. The girls have enjoyed several parties throughout the year. Not the least of the special functions sponsored by the organization is the annual camping trip at St. Croix Camp. The trip serves as a fitting climax to the year's activities. A great share of the credit for the success of the Women's Athletic Association should be given Miss Branstad. Although this was Miss Branstad's first year at River Falls, she certainly proved herself an efficient adviser and a splendid friend of the Women’s Athletic Association. During the first half of the year the following officers were elected: President, Clarice Olson: vice-president. Jennie Linehan; secretary, Rochelle Farrell: and treasurer, Esther Chinnock.

Douettpike FIELD HOCKEY A LTHOUGH field hockey is not usually a very popular sport, it seemed to hold a special interest for the girls last fall. This was evidenced by the large number of girls who regularly turned out for practice. Very soon after the first term had begun, one could see Miss Branstad and her hockey players racing down the campus. In order to distinguish the teams, the girls wore red, orange, and black ties. When it became too cold to play outside, the players were forced to confine the range of their hits to the limits of the gymnasium walls. Although this handicapped some of the “heavy hitters,” it furnished an opportunity to develop scientific hitting and team work. At the close of the season a tournament was held. There was keen competition. and a great deal of interest was aroused as a result. Mildrd Howe was chosen captain of the Orange team. Dagmar Pederson captain of the Blacks, and Esther Chinnock the head of the Pinks. The hockey season terminated in a “baked beans banquet.” The banquet was given by the two losing teams in honor of the winning Orange team. It was held in the cafeteria dining room. It was planned by Dagmar Pederson. She proved her skill as a coach and her expertness at giving orders. At this time Miss Branstad commended the girls on the fine sportsmanship which they had shown throughout the season. It was with regret that the girls saw the hockey season close. The good fellowship which had been developed was carried over into the other activities, and helped to make them a success. The following girls were chosen on the honor team and received one hundred points toward their sweaters. Esther Chinnock Marie Doverspike Luella Gregerson Ragnhild Haugrud Lucille Aitken Luella Hermanson Ruby Howe Gertrude Klein Edna Larson Dagmar Ryan One Hundred Forty-FourSOCCER WHEN Miss Branstad introduced soccer, it became popular at once because of its novelty. The girls were only too glad to wear out the tips of their tennis shoes if they could bring home some points for their team. Soccer is a game which necessitates in its players ability to kick hard and accurately. The primary object of the game is to succeed in kicking the ball over the opponent's goal without its being caught by the goal-keeper. The goal-keepers became quite skilled in guarding the goal. It took a player with quick wits and speed to pass the ball over the home plate. Some of the girls experiencd great difficulty in learning how to play in that it was hard to grow accustomed to stand and let the ball pass without making any effort to catch it. In soccer no player can touch the ball with the hands except the goal-keeper. She, however, can catch it. sit on it. or use any means she wishes to stop the ball from passing her goal. After considerable practice, some of the girls could have played in close competition with our football team. The accuracy and force evidenced in their kicking was indeed remarkable. The following girls received squad points: Marie Doverspike Gladys Eng Nina Hanson Ragnild Haugrud LUELLA HERMANSON Ruby Howe Mary Hylkema Viola Jones Gertrude Klein Eda Kreuziger Ida Kreuziger Ethel Lubick Marian Posel Dagmar Ryan Elsie Schorta Joyce Schwalen Jane Simonson Anna Warner Oft Hundred Fortu-FivtPederson.

Misseli, Void VOLLEYBALL AFTER the basketball season, volleyball was introduced. A larger number of girls came out for this sport than for any other. There were about forty girls out for the regular practices, which were held twice each week. Many of them had played volleyball before; consequently, a great deal of interest was shown from the beginning of the season. The first few practices were devoted almost entirely to learning how to serve the ball and how to return it to the opponents’ side of the court. After the girls had apparently mastered the fundamentals, the real games started. These games often became hotly contested battles as the sides were very evenly matched. At the end of the season the girls chose teams to determine the champions. The teams named themselves the "High Jumpers” and the "Heavy Hitters." The “Heavy Hitters,” however, did not live up to their name, as the "High Jumpers” succeeded in winning three out of the five games played. The same requirements were observed in volleyball as were in the other sports which were promoted by the W. A. A. A girl must be present at one-half of the practices in order to be eligible to receive the twenty-five points which are given as squad points. Seventeen girls earned squad points in volleyball. They are: Joyce Schwalen Elsie Schorta Dagmar Ryan Gladys Eng Lucy vennes Nina Hanson Eda Kruziger Ida Kruziger Cornie Amundson Gertrude Klein Neva budewitz Vivian Mayer Marian Posel Adele Deans Luella Hermanson Ruby Howe Luella Gregerson One Hundred Form-SixCrtgtrson.

Schn’altn. E. Kreazigtr BASKETBALL THERE was an exceptionally good turnout for basketball this season. The enthusiasm which was shown at the beginning of the season helped to make this sport a decided success. Practices were held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, beginning in December and continuing on through February. The first practices were merely technical drills, but the girls gradually developed some very fine team work. In order to earn squad points, each girl must be out for at least half of the regular practices. The following girls were eligible for twenty-five squad points: Adele Deans. Joyce Schwalen. Elsie Schorta. Mildred Ryan. Helen Lamson. Clarice Olson, Violet Hunt, Anna Warner. Eda Kreuziger. and Ida Kreuziger. During the last two weeks of the season a tournament was held. Each girl who had been out for the practices was chosen on one of the four teams. After the tournament. Miss Branstad selected an all-college team. The members were picked for ability, sportsmanship, special game and technique, and ability to play together. Members of the honor team will receive one hundred points toward their sweaters.

'30 On Hundrtd Fotly-EifhlMUSICMarvin D. Gedre William Schliep Cara Amelia Wharton MUSIC THIS year has been most successful in the history of the music department. Recently enlarged so as to offer a minor in music, it has become outstanding in the field of college activities. Besides providing the students with excellent musical instruction, it at the same time furnishes the college with culture and entertainment. The credit for the success of the year must go to the splendid faculty of the department. Every one of them is a teacher of known ability and experience. With Professor Marvin D. Geere, director of music, as voice teacher, the department can boast of the best in singing. Mr. Geere’s rich experience in the world of music and his striking personality make him a popular figure in the eyes of those who take work under him. His private instruction in voice draws students from a large territory. Miss Cara Wharton, former teacher of piano and organ at the MacPhail School of Music. Minneapolis, offers unusual opportunities for students interested in piano or organ. Professor William Schliep. who has had years of professional experience, appearing as soloist with many of the more prominent bands and orchestras of the Northwest, is excellently prepared to give instruction on all reed and wind instruments. Mr. Maxmillian Dick, a concert violinist and teacher of international reputation, offers instruction in violin of a quality that is rarely found in any of the smaller colleges. Mrs. Maxmillian Dick, a concert cellist and viola player of international reputation, is at present developing in River Falls students whose musical ability shows excellent instruction. The college maintains a twenty-eight piece student orchestra, augmented by several mature musicians from surrounding cities, who both play in the orchestra and aid in the development of the younger musicians. The college orchestra season consisted of eight concerts given in River Falls and surrounding cities, climaxing with a grand concert, with Mr. Byron Holtz as soloist, given at the final evening performance of the Annual Music Contest. The program was extremely well-balanced, containing a Mozart overture and a Mendelssohn piano concerto with orchestra, along with several lighter numbers. The college band of thirty-five pieces enjoyed a successful season, making fifteen public appearances. It is regarded as one of the most public spirited organizations of the school, responding readily with music at all school affairs. Of the newer organizations the string quartet has probably been most active. Steady practice and frequent public appearances have developed it to a degree that its talent has created a demand for its appearance in most of the cities of northwest Wisconsin. The violin choir and the instrumental trio. On Hundred FifluRunkle Christiansen Betterly Schliep (Director) THE 1929-1930 SEASON while not as active in school affairs, have spent much time in an intensive study of musical masterpieces, resulting in an excellent quality of chamber music. The mixed chorus, directed by Mr. Geere, is composed of eighty members. This organization is rapidly increasing in size, every new member adding enthusiasm to the group. Local concerts in school and in various churches of River Falls together with some out-of-town engagements comprise the number of public appearances which the chorus made. An outstanding program was given at a special assembly program prior to the Christmas vacation. On the final number the orchestra joined in with the chorus, singing a massive rendition of Gounod’s "Unfold Ye Portals" from "The Redemption.” The college mixed quartette, consisting of Margaret Kelly, soprano: Gretchen Grimm, alto: Wroe Wolfe, tenor, and Emmett Ausman. bass, has been very active. Under the direction of Mr. Geere. this group, augmented by Tom Runkle. violinist. Byron Holtz, pianist, and Carol Murray, soprano, has filled many engagements both in River Falls and out of town. Each term the music department gave a musical program in Assembly. The first term Mr. Geere. with Miss Wharton as accompanist, sang a program of delightful numbers, his rich baritone voice proving a real treat to the student body. In addition, a girls’ quartette and two freshman pianists rendered numbers. The second term's program was enthusiastically received. Mr. Geere presented several of his voice students in an interesting recital, and Miss Wharton was represented by very good pianistic showings on the part of the pupils whom she presented. Mr. Schliep presented his string quartette and his instrumental trio in what proved to be a revelation in the art of ensemble music. Outside musical talent was presented at various times throughout the year by the music department. Mrs. Overby, soprano of the famous St. Olaf Choir, sang a beautiful program here. Mr. Orville Wright, tenor of a New York stock company, sang to the student body one morning a splendid program. The program given during the third term was by Mrs. Durfee of Minneapolis. An annual feature of musical activity in the college is the Interscholastic Music Contest directed by Prof. Geere. Begun in 1925 with about 250 high school students competing, this affair has grown until this year over a thousand contestants coming from twenty-seven towns and. cities of northwestern Wisconsin were registered. The music contest, which is considered the largest competitive gathering of high school students in the state, proves to be a very great stimulus to musical education.

The cast was composed of a combination of historical characters and symbolic figures whose lines were interspersed with tableau, pantomime and music. The four episodes traced the history of the Pilgrim Fathers from their life in Holland through the embarkation, the period when the ship was anchored off Cape Cod, the period when Death, Disease and Poverty stalked over the land, to the time when Hope became triumphant over Fear, and the celebration of the First Thanksgiving. Among the historical personages in the cast and the people who took the parts were: William Brewster—Carvel Morton. William Bradford—Carl Neitzke, Elder Robinson—Wroe Wolfe. Winslow—Richard Mooney. Miles Standish—Charles Bush. Stephen Hopkins—Emmett Ausman. Giles Hopkins —Byron Holtz, John Alden—Don Zwickey. John Holwand—John Lloyd. Priscilla Alden—Margaret Fox. Mistress Allerton—Dorothy Johnson, Elizabeth Tilley—Evelyn Rhiel. Constance Hopkins—Arlene Howard. Mary Chilton—Maxine Blain. Prince Maurice, son of the Prince of Orange, was played by Fred Mattson. Those who took part of Dutch men were: Henry Hagen. Gordon Bohn. John Lloyd, and Wilbur Dehmer. The Dutch women were Mae Weisman. Bernice Sutherland. Dorothy Dretzke. Pauline Isaacson, and Jenny Linehan. Faith. Courage and Hope were Rochelle Farrell. Edith Peterson, and Jane Simonson. Death, Poverty, and Disease were: Wilbur Dehmer. Lyle Lamphere. Samoset—Harry Kotleski. Squanto—Edwin Warwick. another Indian—Ryan Laue. Children from the training school gave a Dutch Dance. The quartette was composed of Elaine Peterson. Carol Murray. Archie Mueller, and LeRoy Luberg. Bernice Sutherland sang the solo. Miss Wharton assisted at the piano. Colored lights thrown on the tableaus and pantomimes made very beautiful and effective pictures.

It was given' for the benefit of the Agrifallian Poultry Show. The part of Lancelot, the ambitious but poor young composer, was most ably handled by Bernard Morton, while Margaret Burkholder charmingly played the title role. She was the poor little servant in the cheap London boarding house of Mrs. Leadbatter, where Lancelot lived. He, sorry for the poor little servant, promised to take her away, but suddenly she inherits a fortune, and is next seen as a member of the smart set. where the elderly countess and her son have designs on her money. Lancelot, now famous, succeeds in winning her. The theme song for the play was composed by Byron Holtz. CAST OF CHARACTERS Director. MISS FLINT Lancelot, a composer..........................

The part of the adorable, yet poor little Irish heroine. "Peg.” who lived in New York, but inherited a fortune from a rich English uncle whom she had never seen, was exceptionally well handled by Margaret Fox. The situations which arose as a result of her being called to England to be reared in the home of an aristocratic aunt, furnished the audience with much amusement. The part of "Jerry," the titled young lover, was delightfully interpreted by Benjamin West. Archie Mueller as Peg's English cousin Alaric. charmingly handled the comedy. His willingness to even sacrifice himself and marry Peg in order to retrieve the family fortune, was a delightful bit of character delineation. Arlene Howard gave a fine interpretation of Ethel. Alaric’s headstrong sister, whose attempt to elope was prevented by Peg. Byron Holtz starred as the undesirable lover in this affair. Evelyn Rhiel played the part of Mrs. Chichester, the mother, with dignity and reserve. Emmett Ausman interpreted well the part of Montgomery Hawkes. the • Uncle's lawyer, who also succumbed to Peg’s charms. Mae Wiesman as the maid and Carvel Morton as the footman, each did a creditable piece of work. THE CAST Director. MISS FLINT "Peg"......................... “Jerry .......................

The production of this play brought to River Falls the state championship in college dramatics in the contest held under the auspices of the Wisconsin Dramatic Guild at Madison, on March 8, as the closing event of Dramatic Festival Week. The part of Ezra Carr, the quick tempered old father who caused his son to leave home, was the most outstanding piece of work ever done in the school. This part was played by Bernard Morton. Margaret Burkholder as Adna. his wife, who longed for the return of her son, gave a sympathetic and artistic interpretation of the part and lent strong support to the production. The pathos of her drab life, deprived of the comfort of her son because of the father’s ignorance and temper, won her the sympathy of the audience. The charming personality of Lyle Lamphere as the man who claimed to be the son, but against whom the neighbor had poisoned the mind of the father, captivated the audience and made them long for his acceptance in the home. His interpretation of the son’s devotion to his mother was extremely touching. His climax was powerful. Florence Mueller handled the part of the gossiping neighbor so realistically that the hatred and anger of the audience was intense. They could scarcely wait for her exit and anxiously hoped for something to happen to destroy her influence. In the District Contest at Menomonie, this cast competed with Stout Institute and Eau Claire Teachers College. In the State Contest they competed with Whitewater and Platteville Teachers Colleges.

Eva Davison Frank Rosenthal "SMILIN’ THROUGH” This charming romantic comedy was produced by the Masquers on May 15th under the direction of Miss Flint. Special scenery was built for the occasion, elaborate costumes were worn, and beautiful lighting effects added to the charm of the scene. The first act showed the garden in 1914 when John Carteret. Kathleen Dunganon's ageing and stubborn uncle, forbade her marriage to Kenneth Wayne. Pressed for an explanation of his unreasonable prejudice, he began the story of something that happened fifty years before. The second act flashed back to a time fifty years previous when Kathleen's aunt Moonyeen was about to marry Carteret. It was the wedding night when in this very garden young Wayne's father, wildly jealous and drunk, shooting at Carteret, missed him and killed Moonyeen as she jumped in front of her lover. In the third act. Carteret, still remembering that night in the garden, was firm in his opposition to Kenneth until the spirit of Moonyeen got a message across from the other world softening his stubborn heart. Then John Carteret died and joined bis spirit bride, while the young lovers were free to marry. Bernard Morton as Carteret. Margaret Burkholder in the double role of Kathleen Dungannon and Moonyeen Clare, and Lyle Lamphere in the double role of Kenneth Wayne and Jeremiah Wayne gave their usual strong and sympathetic interpretation of the intensely dramatic scenes. They, with Florence Mueller who played the part of Mary Clare. Moonyeen's sister, had composed the winning cast of "Just Neighborly". They were supported by an exceptionally strong group, each of whom had had previous experience in other productions during the year. CAST John Carteret....................................

One Handled Sixty-Two FORENSICS - t sgnaa aHHi Madhon Williams (Coach) Pttenon Lamplitfc Merrill Abtahamun Hawkini CroewO Motion FORENSICS THIS has been another "River Falls” year for the public speaking department of this college. River Falls has this year, as in the past several years, achieved those successes that have placed her. as a school, in the unique position of having won more victories and more state championships in the realm of public speaking than any of the other Wisconsin teachers' colleges. The forensic department has always contributed its share to those forces that make River Falls one of the best teachers colleges in the state. New and inexperienced men have been trained in forensics, but the same victorious results have been attained. Once again the debate teams have won an undisputed state championship, and once again the representatives in oratory and extemporaneous speaking contests have given creditable accounts of themselves. Forensics came into prominence early in October when Coach Williams made the first call for debaters. With a response of about twenty candidates. Mr. Williams began the coaching that developed the championship debaters. A series of debates were presented on the subject of the eighteenth amendment. These debates served as excellent stepping stones preparatory to the real work soon to be begun. The college debate question. "Resolved that the United States Should Adopt a Policy of National Disarmament." was selected in November, and at that time the real work of the debaters began. New men came out to join the ranks, and the squad was organized. The first meeting of the entire squad was in the form of a banquet at which twenty-two men and one brave young woman were present. The veteran debaters in the group were Morton. Abraham -sen. and Hawkins. The large majority of the rest of the squad were as “green" as any group could possibly have been. At this meeting Martin Abrahamsen was elected captain of the squad for the season. No doubt the piloting of "Abe", his personality, and his ability were large factors in the results of the season. Coach Williams had high hopes of achievement on that evening and expressed the idea that the squad looked good to him. Looking the group over (through the traditional smoke screen of debaters’ banquets), they probably looked like a group of "nincompoops" to the coach, but he saw the possibilities and certainly developed his squad in fine fashion. One Hundred Sixty-FourWilliam (Cocch). Lmbeeg. O'Connell .4brahamttn. Uorton. Crottvfl. Peterson. Merrill. HatCkini. Unditon. Xeilike. Chick :. Miller THE 1929-1930 SEASON FROM that time on the debate room became the place of constant "pooh-poohing” and hard work. The first series of debates ended with Morton. Bohn, and Penn the only undefeated team. The losers of this series were Hawkins. Dorgan. and Vruink. who demonstrated rare ability as head waiters at a banquet a few days later. After this series of debates a squad, consisting of Morton. Abrahamsen. Lamphere. Merrill. Hawkins. Crowell. Peterson, and Madison was selected. With this group Mr. Williams worked patiently and ambitiously until he had developed the teams that brought the victories to River Falls. They debated often, worked hard, received valuable coaching and improved a great deal. The debates were "hot" and hard fought before the season was over. The affirmative squad selected consisted of Lyle Lamphere. Horace Merrill. Martin Abrahamsen. and Leonard Madison, alternate. Their important practice debates were with Eau Claire. Moorhead, Concordia. Winona, and St. Nor-berts. This series of debates gave this team the confidence and training necessary for the conference debates to come. The negative team consisting of William Hawkins, Chester Crowell, and Bernard Morton, with Victor Peterson as alternate, debated Eau Claire. Moorhead. Columbia, and Winona teachers colleges for their practice debates. These debates trained the men. gave them debating experience and brought new possibilities of the question to their minds. In addition to the experience in debating, these debate trips were fine excursions and interesting days for those who made them. During this time "Bud" Morton was coaching another band of debaters. Those who weren’t selected as members of the first team continued their debate work. They formed teams and worked on the state high school question. These people debated most of the neighboring high school teams. The second team included Woods. Dittbrenner. Chicker. Walker. Deringer. Penn. Vruwink. Neitzke. Miller, O’Connell, and Frye, all of whom will be in school next year. The students trained in this group will, no doubt, be the recruits who will fill the vacancies on the first team left by the graduation of some of the veterans, as One Handled Sixty-Fivewell as make the first team debaters who remain in school work for their positions next year. The first conference debates were held March 7, when Platteville’s negative team met River Falls' affirmative here. The affirmative learn outclassed their rivals and received the decision by a score of 100 to 95. On the same day the River Falls negative (raveled to Stevens Point to meet the affirmative of that school with equally successful results. River Falls winning by a score of 100 to 96. Two weeks later River Falls affirmative met the La Crosse negative at La Crosse. This debate was the only defeat of the season for River Falls, La Crosse winning 100 to 98. When we consider the fact that River Falls shared with Oshkosh the honor of being the only schools out of nine to successfully uphold the affirmative, we marvel, not at the loss or the debate, but rather at the small margin by which it was lost. The next week the negative met Oshkosh’s affirmative at River Falls. This debate was, no doubt, the best debate of the season. Both teams were "well oiled" and the arguments were potent. The negative proved to have the River Falls "punch" and succeeded in convincing the judge that Oshkosh was slightly mistaken. They received the decision with comparative scores of 100 to 96. This debate left River Falls the title of "State Champions". The state oratorical contest was held at Platteville this year. LeRoy Luberg represented River Falls in oratory. He earned this privilege by defeating Abrahamsen. Merrill, and Wolf in the local tryouts. The fact that Luberg placed third in the contest, one of the best ever held in Wisconsin, indicates his ability as an orator. Luberg is a Senior and for four years has been interested in forensics, and has been on the debate squad three years. Bernard Morton defeated Madison. Penn and Crowell to represent River Falls as extemporaneous speaker at this state contest. Crowell and Merrill, winning second in extemporaneous speaking and oratory respectively, earned the privilege of accompanying the contestants to Platteville. Morton made a splendid showing and under more favorable circumstances, could have placed first, for he is a better natural speaker than were any of his opponents. For two years he has been the extempore speaker, and has always impressed his audience with his ability. He has debated with the college team for three years, helping to win a championship each time. He has never been on a team that has been defeated, a record only few men in this state can claim. This year he successfully coached the second team of debaters. "Bud" has a year left at River Falls, and "big" things are expected of him. If he can someday learn to say "thousands" instead of "billions" where billions is wrong, and to state the facts as they are instead of exaggerating them, he will be almost perfect. However, he can usually convince the judges that his figures are correct and that the opponents have the wrong information. To Captain Abrahamsen much credit is due. "Abe." being a Senior, leaves this spring after two years as a great debater. He has a smooth, pleasing delivery and locates suitable information to back bis statements. His last rebuttal speech has been much feared by all opponents, and rightly so. because if he could get the last word to the judge, his team usually won. The other two members of the affirmative were Merrill and Lamphere. Lamphere debated for his first season and as a first speaker has proved his worth. He was always thoroughly convinced that he was on the right side of the question and was a persuasive speaker. Merrill, better known among debaters as "Speedy", has a Om Hur.ittS SiMl$Sixkeen mind and a ready argument. He has been accused of speaking with a mouthful of warm mush and of being too fast among the co-eds. If he can live down the title of "Speedy", prove to the co-eds that he is a conservative, thoughtful, and careful young man, and can continue his forensic activities for the two years he has left at college, there will be many successful contests to come. The negative, of course, are rough, bloodthirsty, armed forces. Morton has been given some space; however, it is only just to say that he was more valuable to the team than can be expressed. Crowell, the second speaker, is a Senior who has entered forensics for the first time in college. He has a wide knowledge of history and his application of history to the negative arguments was very valuable this year. He is forceful, almost to the point of explosion, sufficiently sarcastic, and alert to inconsistencies. As a debater he got results. Hawkins has the distinction of being first negative speaker and also of having more inspiration for effectiveness. He was very closely associated with all the young ladies on the entire debate squad. Of course, the cows had to be milked and the people in China had to be protected, but even more important than either of those, the lady debaters had to be cared for. Bill has had two years of college debating and will probably have two more. He has made an excellent record in forensics, and if his "debater's inspiration" returns to River Falls (as we hope she will), great things can be expected of him. The alternates were efficient timekeepers during the season. They shortened and lengthened speeches as the occasion demanded by regulating the watch as they saw fit. They aided materially in increasing the debt of the forensic department and always were on hand at meal times while on trips. They encourage students to try out for the debate teams, as there is a chance to become a member of the team, or at least to become an alternate, and they say that an alternate can never again say that he hasn’t gotten something for nothing. The forensic season terminated with a banquet given for the eight debaters and the orator by Coach Williams. The banquet was an ideal termination of a good season. Under the characteristic screen of blue smoke, the River Falls speakers and their coach happily closed a wonderful season. Fine co-operation was given by the faculty of the school, who willingly acted as judges for practice debates and gave excellent and worthwhile criticisms. Those called upon most often were Professors Hunt. Hanna. Junkman. Karges, Hill, Mallott, and Miss Haddow. To them belong a share of the credit for the year's success. To Coach Williams belongs a large share of the credit for a successful year in forensics. He has developed the speakers who have brought glory to River Falls largely through his own efforts. He has the respect, admiration, and friendship of all the men with whom he has worked; and knowing him as a coach, as a faculty member, as a man, and as a friend has meant enough to the students with whom he has been connected to more than repay them for the time they have spent. He has worked hard and with much patience, and because of him the speakers have succeeded.

Prdmoa THE STUDENT VOICE THE STUDENT VOICE, a school newspaper published weekly by the students of the college, has as its primary aim the publication of news that is news and news that the students of the college want. The editorial policy of the Student Voice is to advance school spirit, to boost worthwhile organizations, and to help make River rails supreme in every field of endeavor, including all forms of sports, debate, dramatics, and scholarship. The Voice, in addition to its college circulation, has an outside circulation approximating two hundred. For this reason it has also been the policy of the editorial staff of the Voice to include any information in each publication which would be of interest to alumni or potential students at River Falls. This year the editorial staff of the Voice has found itself somewhat handicapped in living up to the ideals that it has set for itself due to the fact that over one third of the funds to be used for the publication of the paper were tied up so that they could not be used. In spite of this fact, it has been found possible through the untiring efforts of the business staff to print more than two thirds of the usual number of papers. Instead of being a weekly paper it has been found necessary to publish the paper every other week, so that the ideal of news as news was not reached. Mr. Eide, who has been the advisor of the Voice for over three years, was away on a leave of absence after the first term. Into his place stepped Mrs. Eide, and the work of the Student Voice was carried on without a hitch. Neither the editorial staff nor the business staff are offering any apologies for the paper this year. It is their belief that they have served the students in the best manner possible under the circumstances. They hope and expect to be able to serve the students doubly well when the next college year begins.

In the selection of the theme of the book—Modern Youth—we have stayed within the realm of the college and made it the book of the school of today in every way possible. Several departures from the customs of former years have been made. The book has been made an all-school book, and the staff made up of representatives from all classes, instead of from the Junior class alone. The policy of placing a few members on the staff as assistants with a view to giving them experience for regular work next year has been adopted. This will be still further carried out next year. The staffs of the past have set a standard which we have tried to attain. All members of the staff have given the very best cooperation in an effort to make this yearbook a success. It is the intense interest, knowledge of the work, and untiring efforts of Miss Latta that have made possible the publication of this book. —the Editor.

The organization through continued growth and development has become the most outstanding student organization of its kind in the state. This year more emphasis than ever has been placed on the executing of a program of service to the student body. To more efficiently achieve this aim, a new organization of the cabinet was employed. The four regular officers remained the same as in former years. The men who had the honor of holding these positions were: President, Leonard Madison: Vice-President, Clarence Nyht: Secretary, Lyle Lamphere; and Treasurer, William Turner. The new arrangement of the cabinet, as devised at the outset of the season, divided the entire cabinet into five committees, namely: Campus Service: Chairman. Victor Peterson, Arno Dittbrenner, Horace Merrill, Carl Wolf, Adolph Salquist, and Earle Sanford: Finance: Chairman, William Turner and Richard Mooney: Social Activities: Chairman. Carl James P. Jacobson One Hundred Seventy-SixTHE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION Neitzke, John Hammer, LeRoy Luberg, and Leonard Warner: Weekly Meetings, Chairman. Clarence Nyht, Martin Abraham-sen, Lyle Lamphere, and Marvin Pratt: and World Fellowship. Floyd Miller. With this arrangement a well rounded program was made possible which fulfilled the purpose to which the Y. M. C. A. devotes itself. The first day of school found old “Y” men throughout the campus assisting the new men students. The Big Brother work was continued until the Freshmen were well acclimated to the school life here at River Falls. Much of the success of the All-School Mixer which was held the first Friday of the school year is to be given to the Social Activities committee of the Y. M. C. A. The Campus Service committee arranged visits to the students who by misfortune were ill. The Social Activities committee supplied the men students with various sorts of recreation. The outdoor stag parties, and the fellowship suppers gave the members opportunities to come in contact with each other and with faculty members in a manner otherwise impossible. The weekly meetings this year were of inspiration and benefit to everyone attending. The regularity of those attending was an indication of the values which the members realized. Dittbrenner.

We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task we seek to understand Jesus and follow Him. In order to emphasize the spiritual side of life the Y. W. C. A. has attempted to bring before the girls of the college a varied and inspirational series of programs. The candle light service at which the new members were taken into the association was the first meeting of the year. This concluded with the installation service for the new cabinet. Under the leadership of Mrs. Justin Williams, the cabinet started Lewis Browne's This Believing World. During the sessions, many thoughts were brought out in our discussions with Mrs. Williams as to how we could more happily lead a full and creative life. It was also the pleasure of the Y. W. C. A. in February to entertain Miss Hamilton, the state Y. W. C. A. secretary. She met individually with the cabinet members. and at a Valentine Tea given in the social room met many other Y. W. girls. The cabinet Training Conference in April was perhaps the climax of the year’s program. It Irma Hathorn On Hundred Stcmiy-EigktTHE CABINET AT BALSAM LAKE THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION was a convention of the cabinets from Eau Glaire. Superior, Stout, Stevens Point, and Northland Colleges which, with our own. spent a week-end of spiritual fellowship. On Saturday night of the conference a Geneva banquet was given for the visiting cabinets and all of our Y. W. girls. Among our guests were Miss Hamilton. Miss Saddler of New York. Miss Beech of the University Farm School, and Glen Clarke of Macalester College. The delegates left on Sunday afternoon, feeling that the conference had given them something which they would have otherwise missed. The Christmas party, the joint meetings with the Young Men's Christian Association and the Newman Club, various musical programs, and inspirational meetings led by students or local speakers have portrayed somewhat the wideness of contact of the Y. W. C. A. During 1930 we have attempted to find through social and spiritual relationships a glimpse of.“The Gleam’ which it is our privilege to follow as an outcome of a growing knowledge of God.

Junkman THE NEWMAN CLUB Our Newman Club has done much toward cultivating an intelligent and sympathetic understanding among its members and the students of other organizations. Its sixty-five active members are interested in following Cardinal Newman's splendid example of encouraging “diviner feelings, kindred with the skies." The variety of interests in our meetings, held every Tuesday evening, has secured a large attendance and brought us nearer to our goal. We are especially indebted to faculty members and outside speakers who have contributed to our discussions. Mr. Karges gave us the Protestants’ views on establishing understanding relationships among the various religious sects. Mrs. Eide delighted us with an account of her experiences in traveling through Italy. Father Rice of Hudson discussed the establishment of the Vatican City. Father Beaudette of Somerset told of his interesting adventures in studying birds. The remarkable musical ability of Miss Kelly and Mr. Holtz was enjoyed by the Newman members One Hundred EightyTHE NEWMAN CLUB as well as members of other organizations eager to hear them sing and play. The keen interest, loyalty, and initiative evinced by our officers has proved them able representatives of our organization. The officers this year have been: Presidents. Mark Saxton and Mary Greeley: vice-presidents, Earl McLaughlin and Benjamin Sirianni: secretary and treasurer, John McDonald. Joint meetings, consisting of musical programs as well as those of a more serious nature, with the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. have done much to remove intangible religious barriers still existing among many members of the student body. Our social events are always heralded enthusiastically. A feeling of good fellowship was established at the Mixer held in the basement of St. Bridget’s Church, sponsored by Father Fassbender, and the picnic supper at Glen Park. The summum bonum of our social life was, of course, the annual banquet at the Gladstone Hotel. Mr. Junkman, our able advisor, and Father Fassbinder extend, with the club, hearty greetings to all Catholic students contemplating attending this school. Kelly, Kinney Koiletki. LaDutire.

Seitzke THE AGRIFALLIAN SOCIETY The Agrifallian society, whose membership includes all students interested in agriculture, is an organization for the purpose of giving its members practical experience in public speaking and parliamentary practice. It also gives its members training in organizing and arranging programs for the various club movements, such as the boys and girls 4-H clubs. Future Farmers of America, and farmers’ clubs and institutes. The agricultural department of the River Falls Teachers College was recognized three years ago as a training unit for teachers under the Smith-Hughes act. Since then we have enjoyed a rapid growth and development. This is perhaps the most successful year the organization has had. Arno Dittbrenner acted as president during the first half of the year. Mr. Dittbrenner is a Junior and worked ceaselessly to further the interests of the organization. The other officers were: John Lloyd, vice-president: Victor Peterson, secretary, and Adolph Salquist, treasurer. During the second half of the year, Marvin Hanson, a Senior in the depart- Arthur N. Johnson One Hundred Eighty-TwoTHE AGRIFALLIAN SOCIETY ment, acted in the capacity of president. The rest of the administrative force consisted of William T urner, vice-president, Clarence Holstrom, treasurer, and Adry Herring, secretary. Meetings were held twice a month on Thursday evenings at which interesting programs were given. A great deal of musical and dramatic talent was brought to light at these meetings. A quartet was organized which consisted of Wroe Wolfe and Marvin Hanson, tenors, and Norman Kahl and Chris Hanson, bass. Besides furnishing music at the regular programs this quartet sang at the poultry show, farmers’ institutes and other entertainments. The social activities of the organization included two joint parties with the Rural Life Club. The first dance was held shortly after Christmas and was in the form of a hard times party. Prizes were awarded for the best costumes. On March 22 another dance was given in the South Hall gymnasium. Joe Chopp's orchestra furnished the music for the occasion. A few old time numbers played by Cecil Scribner added spice to the evening. In the early part of the fall the Agrifallian assisted in arranging the program for the boys’ and girls' 4-H Club Achievement Day for Pierce and St. Croix Counties. One Hundred Eighty-Three C.

ZeddietTHE AGRIFALLIAN SOCIETY An all-day program was given in the auditorium consisting of educational talks and musical selections by members of the college. A committee of Agrifallian students took charge of the lunch which was served in the gymnasium to about five hundred boys and girls. After dinner the club members paraded through the business center of River Falls. The Poultry and Grain show, which was held in January, was a decided success and was attended by an unusually large crowd. The exhibits of poultry, turkeys, geese, ducks, and grain nearly filled the gymnasium and were the best which have yet been shown. Mr. Hayes from the University of Wisconsin judged the exhibits. A program was given in the auditorium for the farmers and surrounding school children who attended the show. One of the most important events of each year is the Agriculture Field Day which is held in the spring. The students from the surrounding high schools who are interested in agriculture are invited to attend. Each Senior coaches a demonstration team and prepares an exhibit on some timely subject. One Hundred Eighty-FourTHE AGRIFALLIAN SOCIETY A stock judging contest is usually held, in which the high school teams compete for high honors. A stock show is also held in which the freshman and sophomore classes select animals from the college herd and feed and prepare them for exhibit. This spring the regular field day plans were changed and an all-day conference was held instead. The seniors in the department arranged exhibits in which they showed plans for teaching the different high school agricultural classes. Text books, reference books, bulletins and illustrative material were shown. This work is of especial value to a beginning teacher. Prominent educators in agricultural work were called in to lead discussion groups on topics or problems which confront the beginning teacher. The guests who attended the conference included: George P. Hambrecht, state director of vocational education, L. M. Sasman, state supervisor, and Ivan Fay, teacher trainer of agriculture in Wisconsin. A banquet was held in the evening in the parlors of the Lutheran church, which was thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. One Hundred Eighty-FiveMabel jorstad Gordon. Httmanton. Bictt ingen Cloutier.

Larrabee THE RURAL LIFE CLUB The Rural Life Club is made up of all those students taking the one year rural course at the River Falls State Teachers College. These people are interested in promoting better and higher education in our rural communities, believing that the hope of the future lies in its young people. One of the main features of the rural department is its practice training schools. There are three of these model schools: one the Centerville School, one the Kinnickinnic School, and one the Liberty Hill School. The respective critic teachers who have faithfully cooperated with Mr. Mallot and Miss Jorstad during the past year are Mrs. Stinson, Miss Garley, and Miss Nichols. The training which the students get through practice teaching in these schools is the actual experience needed to prepare them for next year. Meetings of the Rural Life Club were held each alternate Thursday night. Much talent has been mani- One Hundred Eighty-SixTHE RURAL LIFE CLUB fested among this group at the regular Thursday evening programs and interesting lectures were heard. There were several outstanding events which took place during the past year. The little red school house which served as the annual float for homecoming will long be remembered by the graduating class. The Rural-Agrifallian parties will probably remain as bright lights of the year for a long time to come, as will the Rural Life Banquet held on April 30th. Besides the annual picnic many of the Ruralites joined the St. Croix Country Excursion to the Twin Cities, May 12th. All in all, this has been a good year. Much credit is due to the heads of our department. The officers for the first term were: President, Joseph Gordon: vice-president. Leonard Hermanson; secretary, Tena Brettingen: treasurer, Ernest Cloutier; second term, president, Neva Budewitz: vice-president.

Flint THE COLLEGE MASQUERS This organization, which has as its purpose the interpretation of modern drama and the preparation of members for coaching dramatics, has spent a very busy year. The meetings have been devoted to the interpretation of plays and skits by the members, and lectures on and demonstrations of stage craft, stage setting, stage lighting, make-up, and directing, given by Miss Flint, the faculty advisor. In addition to the bi-monthly meetings, The Masquers have carried out a heavy dramatic program under the able directon of Miss Flint. The following plays have been presented in the Auditorium : November 27—A Thanksgiving Pageant. December 11—‘‘Merely Mary Ann.” January 30—‘‘Just Neighborly.” February 5—“Peg O’ My Heart." February 19—“The King’s Breakfast,” “The Daily Doesn't," for the Meletean Vaudeville. April 2—“Murder," a skit for the Carnival. April 9—A one-act play contest coached by students. May 14—“Smilin’ Through.” June 9—Senior Class Play. One Hundred Eighty-EightTHE COLLEGE MASQUERS Besides the Auditorium productions, “Just Neighborly” was presented at the Stout Institute Auditorium in Menomonie on February 21st, where in competition with the Manual Arts Players of Stout and the Strut and Fret Players of Eau Claire State Teachers College, it was awarded first place in the District Contest of the Wisconsin Dramatic Guild. On February 28th the play was produced at Hudson for the Order of Eastern Star, and on March 8th. “Just Neighborly” was awarded the State Championship in the Wisconsin Dramatic Guild Contest for Colleges, at Bascom Hall in Madison. The beautiful bronzed medallion, the trophy won at Madison, has been placed in the corridor of North Hall. The most delightful social event of the year was the St. Patrick’s Day banquet given by the Masquers in honor of the winning cast, which consisted of Bernard Morton. Margaret Burkholder, Lyle Lamphere and Florence Mueller, with Harry Kotleski as electrician and Miss Flint as director.

P. has become as proverbial as our pledge song. This distinction has been earned by the eagerness with which the “red-and-white girls” have responded to the appeals for promoting school activities in the face of seemingly insuperable difficulties. Our members are keen to serve by encouraging pep in athletics and forensics, and taking an active part in dramatics and literary work. To the problems of homecoming was given all the zest of traditional endeavors and achievements with the added incentive of attaining something infinitely finer. Our homecoming dinner for alumnae G. O. P. sisters has become as much a part of the festivities as the torch light parade. Adhering rigorously to the laws of our constitution we chose new members, and a tea in their honor was given in the social room. This proved a successful start for our social life. A few weeks later the initiation was held, and twenty new members were Alberta m. Greene One Hundred NinetyG. O. P. admitted into the organization, making a total of forty members, all to act whenever called upon, as always true of G. O. P. members. The G. O.

This year we introduced an informal dancing party in the spring, and we hope to make it an annual event. Several of the alumnae returned for this party. Other delightful parties as well as picnics followed. Our Thursday night meetings were devoted to the discussion of Travel, which was chosen for our topic for the year. In connection with this topic we had some especially interesting talks on literature and music of different countries. At one of our special meetings a party was given in honor of Miss Haddow, who was taken in as an honorary member and presented with a G. O. P. pin.

West One Hundred Ninety-OneTHE STUDENT SOCIAL COMMITTEE OFFICERS Jacob Fogo.......................- - President LEO Krueger.........................Vice-President MARGARET Fox........................Secretary CLARENCE AlfonsE....................Treasurer Miss Hathorn........................Advisor THE Student Social Committee. with Miss Hathorn as faculty ad visor, is composed cf twelve members, three representatives from each of the four classes. The committee receives a part of the budget fees to enable it to promote the various social activities of the school. A number of matinee and evening dances have been sponsored throughout the year, and this year the committee also helped finance the Sophomore Prom. Due to the untiring effort and work of Grant Chinnock a skating rink was built and maintained during the winter months. Co-operating with the faculty committee the Student Social Committee has made it pos- sible for the student body to hear several noted lecturers and be entertained by some excellent musical programs. Among the assembly programs sponsored by the committee were the lecture. “The Teacher as a Filling Station.” delivered by Dr. J. C. Lawrence of the University of Minnesota. and the musical program given by Mrs. Beulah Lockwood Dur-fee. president of Minneapolis Alumni Club of Mu Phi Epsilon national honorary music sorority. The Social Committee has tried to offer a variety of entertainment and sincerely hopes that it has succeeded in its efforts to meet the desires of the students with their varied interests.

The freshmen are running here and there, asking if so and so gives hard exams. They are all afraid of getting one of the dreaded Fs. The upper classmen go around with smiles of confidence. Why shouldn’t they smile—they are prepared—And How! The football men always wear their lucky sweaters, and yet people say that athletes aren’t superstitious. Exam time offers a splendid opportunity for the faculty to make some lifelong friends—they make the most of the opportunity. Some of them seem to think the freshmen are writing for their Master’s Degrees. One sad incident occurred last year. Mr. Malott refused to excuse "Bosco” Farrell, because “Bosco” had three broken fingers—so “Bosco” removed the tape and wrote his psychology test. The freshmen are informed that Mr. Hill’s exams are easy if you know every man in his history and can write a page on what each one of them thought about every topic of importance. A sure way of getting a good mark in history is to tell Mr. Hill that Wisconsin is too far from Texas to amount to anything. Mr. Hanna and Mr. Williams are very liberal markers. They give till it hurts—yes. hurts a fellow’s chance of not getting a “valentine.” Miss Latta’s tests are easy—easy to fail. If you get a D in European History or Comparative Government, throw out your chest—you're a smart boy. One Hundred Ninety-FiveTHE GRAIN AND POULTRY SHOW OVER 450 entries in cockerels, cocks, pullets, hens, old pens and young pens, several dozen guinea pigs, not to mention sixty or seventy bushels of corn and small grain combined to make the ninth annual poultry and grain show, held at the north hall gym December 12 and 13, a cackling success. The fact that free crates were furnished by the management inveigled the Scottish farmers of the surrounding territory to bring in the pride and joy of their poultry yards to display before the innocent and unsuspecting public. The show was held under the auspices of the college agricultural department, and, as is characteristic of functions sponsored by this department, the show went off without a hitch—if we can except the fact that some young imbecile opened up the chicken coops in search of eggs and unconsciously forgot to close them. The dean of men willingly and gracefully released the interested students from all classes, while they were donating their much needed services to the two ceremonies, and all accommodations, from blanketing shivering nags to installing foot scrapers for the members of the Ag department and rural guests, were taken care of by them. Advertising was amply taken care of by the chickens and turkeys. In the auditorium, community singing enjoyed by the Ag department and others interested could almost be distinguished from the continuous cackle and gobble below. Without a doubt the annual grain and poultry show is one of the high lights of the school calendar. On Hundred Stntitr-SixTHE CARNIVAL CARNIVAL days come around but once a year: come out and see the Hawaiian maid do her hula hula dance: attend the prize baby show in the Northwest. Right this way. folks—tonight’s the night. Have your fortune told by the unbalanced Madame Know-It-All, who never misses her guess by more than ten points. Come on everybody, try our Hot Dogs and Eskimo Pies—both are excellent stimulants: we aim to satisfy in any way at any cost—hot and cold. Just take your choice. What would satisfy you? There’s also the fish pond and the candy booth. But above all there's jitney dancing—all you want for a nickel per dance. Come on, folks, right this way! Such the ardent and widespread advertising campaign for the spring carnival. This affair also sponsored one of the latest Parisian style shows. The most recent creations of the famous designers were very cleverly displayed by some of the collegiate models in school—French flares, butterfly bows, capes, and jackets were among the most favored designs. Beach robes were highly featured. Of course, there were several creations for the modern infant, too: blue romper suits apparently are in again this year. The faculty quartette, in rehearsal throughout the year, finally consented to favor the students with a few of their selections, but it was with difficulty that these selections were procured. Since the excellent appearance of this quartette on this highly estimable occasion, they have been receiving invitation upon invitation for other dates, but as yet none have been accepted. On HandrtdMUSIC CONTEST ISN’T it strange how interested the college students are in hearing glee clubs. mixed choruses, bands, and orchestras coached by teachers who perhaps are out for their first year—teachers who were once college pals. The music contest surely draws an audience—even classes are cut in order to attend, and that in itself is a very unusual occurrence, for students are always eagerly seeking and swallowing knowledge in the classroom. But a music contest without their decisive judgment? Never! Music, music everywhere. And all the walls did shrink. Music, music everywhere. But not a place to think! For music irr North Hall, And music in South Hall, Then music in both halls volleys and thunders! Classes were skipped to avoid any blunders! Such are the good old music contest days. One Hundred Nineiy-EightTHE PROM I simply have to start reducing for the prom. Do you know, I tried on my formal—and. well, I can scarcely breathe comfortably in it. How could I ever manage to dance?” Pre-prom conversations ran thus among the girls, followed by two or three weeks of rigorous dieting and equally strenuous reducing exercises. But the result is truly worth the price, for the elaborate gowns, jewels, and pinching shoes add unbelievably to the success of the affair —and although aching feet may make the dancers weary, no one condescends to complain. Among the fellows of the school we hear phrases such as: "Now. whom would you suggest that I ask? Is she able to dance well? You know 1 hate like everything to ask someone whom I have never asked before. Think about it! Why I have been thinking about it for the past two months, but I haven't a date yet. I’ve considered asking a girl from the cities—a keen woman and can she ever dance!” Isn’t it strange the amount of excitement and worry a prospective event like the prom can create among the students? About three weeks before the date set for the affair, the actual decorating must begin. Everyone turns out actively for this! So? But listen, the president of the sophomore class, realizing the necessity of quick work in the last two or three days, calls a meeting and demands the presence of each one in the class, so that the work may be accomplished. Perhaps out of a class of a hundred and fifty students, all follow orders save a hundred and forty-eight. Why? Oh. they're so rushed you know—simply haven’t time to work on prom decorations.
