THE 1938 MELETEAN !Published by the Students of the State Teachers College River Falls, Wisconsin VOLUME TWENTY-SEVENPCWCCD In building the 1938 Meletean we have had a double goal, to make the past real by means of photographs and to create an accurate and permanent record of the events of the year. We hope it will give pleasure now and in the years to come —a living memory of the spirit of River Falls.CONTENTS A d ministration Classes ActivitiesTHE PINES ON SOUTH CAMPUSTHE KINNICKINNIC AS IT WINDS THROUGH THE VALLEYTHE TRAINING SCHOOLBOARD OF REGENTS OFFICERS Edward J.

These men were Wulf, O’Brien, Lead holm, and Leon Larson at end; Staley at the tackle position; and Stuart Larson and Frank at center, the last named later being shifted to a guard position. Three men returned to bolster the guard positions, Cass, Gerhardt, and Carow. In the backfield. Captain Rendler returned to the fullback post. Hcrkal and Nickerson were at quarterback, and Blank, Cudney, and Bartz were at the halfback positions. Alfonse, a letterman from last year, was unable to report due to an injury received in an auto accident. New men who gave indications of being useful were Gille at guard, Dubbe at tackle, and Huffman at end. 90SEASON—1937 Torgerson, a member of the squad the previous season, proved to be a pleasant surprise, turning in a number of fine games in the backficld. What promised to be a most successful season was ruined by the worst epidemic of injuries that ever hit a Falcon team. The opening game of the season was with the Mankato Teachers, who were coached by Jim Carter, former teammate of Lowery at Purdue. The Falcons came out on top by a 21 to 0 score, although minus the services of Captain Rcndlcr. Blank also saw only a few minutes’ service due to injuries. Torgerson, who played fullback, played outstanding ball, scoring two of the Falcon touchdowns. Cudney scored the final touchdown on a twenty-yard run. Coach Lowery used nearly his whole squad, with the play of Torgerson, Bart ., S. Larson, and O’Brien standing out. The Red and White journeyed to St. Johns for the second game of the season, winning 12 to 6. Both touchdowns were scored by the Falcon ends, O’Brien on an end-around play, and Wulf on a pass from Herkal. The Lowery-coached men played one of the best games of the season against the Raiders, being superior in every department of the game except first downs, where St. Johns had a 11 to 12 edge. The Johnnies opened the scoring with a touchdown late in the second quarter.Cudney Blank S. Larson O’Brien L. Larson Torgerson SEASON—1937 The falcons were unable to penetrate their opponents’ defense until the final quarter when both touchdowns were scored, the last being made with only a few minutes to play on a fifty-ninc-yard pass and run from Hcrkal to Wulf. O'Brien, Staley, and Wulf gave an excellent account of themselves in the line. In the backfield, Hcrkal, Blank, and Cudney stood out. Rendler again failed to see much action due to injuries. The conference season was opened under the lights at Eau Claire. Playing on a muddy field, the Falcons were beaten 7 to 6. The Zornmcn scored early in the first quarter and the Falcons ten seconds before the end of the half. River Falls made fifteen first downs to four for Eau Claire, and gained three hundred four yards to Eau Claire’s seventy-four. For the third successive game Rendler was able to play but a short time. Outstanding for the Falcons were Dubbc, S. Larson, and Cass in the line, and Blank, Cudney, and Torgerson in the backfield.SEASON—1937 The annual homecoming game was played with La Crosse before the smallest crowd in years due to the bad weather conditions. The lighter Falcon team held the Indians to a 0 to 0 score. During the entire first half the Falcons were in their own territory. La Crosse held the locals without a first down during this period. During the second half La Crosse threatened to take the ball to the Red and White ninc-yard-linc on running plays, where they lost it on an incomplete pass. The Falcons' main threat came on Blank's sixty-eight yard run from his own tcn-yard-line to the opponents' twenty-second. Here the offense was stopped and Dubbe’s attempted field goal was missed by inches. Later on a pass, Blank to Hcrkal, was missed by the most narrow of margins. If it had been successful, the latter would have scored. O'Brien at end was the outstanding player on the field. Wulf at the other wing turned in his usual fine game. Staley, after a slow start in the first half, came back in the second half to make tackles all over the field. Rcndlcr, in the best condition he had reached so far in the season, turned in an excellent game.Frank, Bartz Gille Nickerson, Dubbe SEASON—1937 Ik a crublinc defensive rattle, the Falcons and Milwaukee played to a scoreless tic. Each team made seven first downs and gained less than one hundred fifty yards. Both teams were weakened by injuries, the locals starting without Hcrkal and Cudney and losing Blank and O’Brien before the end of the game, O'Brien being out for the remainder of the season. Rendlcr was the outstanding defensive star of the game. He was ably assisted by Torgerson and Bartz in the backficld, and S. Larson, L. Larson, Staley, Dubbe, Wulf, and Frank in the line. The last non-conference game of the season was played with Michigan Tech. The Falcons won this by a 9 to 0 score. Torgerson scored the touchdown and the Tech lads contributed an automatic safety. The locals garnered fourteen first downs to one for the Engineers. The Falcons were blocking in excellent fashion and this was instrumental in their winning. Cudney, Blank, and O'Brien did not see any service during the entire game. Hcrkal was forced out in the second half. Nickerson, who took his place, turned in a splendid game and was aided by Bartz, Rendlcr, Torgerson, Wulf, S. Larson, and Cass.SEASON—1937 Tub falcons’ third conference opponent was the Superior Ycllowjackcis. Severely handicapped by the absence of Wulf and O’Brien at the ends and Blank in the backfield, the Falcons nevertheless held Superior to a 12 to 0 score. Superior's speedy hacks were constant threats with Gentile getting away for forty-five yards, the longest run of the game. Captain Rcndler, Bart , and Cudney stood out in the back field, as did Gille in the line. Closing the season against Stout, the Falcons were victorious by a 20 to 0 count. Rcndler and Cudney each scored a touchdown and S. Larson blocked a Blue Devil punt, falling on it over the goal line for a touchdown. The locals made eleven first downs to Stout’s five. John O’Brien, senior end, was sent in for one play by Coach Lowery as a climax to his college career. Rcndler, Bart , Hcrkal, and Cudney played well in the back field along with Cass, Wulf, Lcadholm and S. Larson in the line. Six Falcons won positions on the all-conference teams selected by the coaches. They were Wulf at end, Staley at tackle, and Rcndler at fullback on the first team. Cass at guard, Stuart Larson at center and Cudney at halfback on the second team. At a banquet held Thursday, December 16, Stuart Larson, regular center for three seasons and an all-conference man, was elected captain for the 1938 season.

They were Nelson and Cudney of last year’s squad, and Blank and Larson, members of the squad two years ago. Four veterans, who had been members of the squad for the past two years, also put in their appearance, O’Brien, Lcadholm, Martin, and Osborne. Fischer, a member of last year’s freshman squad, was also a candidate who had had some previous experience. Among the freshmen who soon stood out were Tarpey. King, Moore, Schwartz, and Palm. The return of Ward Randles to school at the beginning of the second term completed the squad. The failure of Russell Nystrom, this year’s captain, to return left the locals without a leader. Coach Lowery appointed captains for each game. The opening game of the season was played with St. Thomas College of St. Paul. A free throw by Cudney, with but two seconds of play remaining, gave the Falcons a 30 to 29 win. Coach Lowery made use of his large squad, twelve men seeing action during the course of the battle. Outstanding for the Red and White were Blank and Moore. Sokol, St. Thomas forward, topped both teams in scoring with eleven points. St. Olaf furnished the opposition for the second non-conference game. Inability to make free throws cost the Falcons this game by a 36 to 33 margin. Each team made eleven field goals, but the Oles made a higher percentage of their free throws. Blank led both teams in scoring with ten points. 98SEASON—1937-38 The third non-conference came was with Oshkosh. The Lowery men, after holding a four-point lead at the half, came back to swamp their opponents 53 to 33. Blank and Nelson paced the scorers with fourteen and eleven points respectively. St. Olaf was decisively defeated in a return encounter 44 to 28. Blank, Larson, and Tarpcy were the offensive stars. Cudney, playing at a forward position, turned in a good game. Particularly encouraging was the showing of the reserves, who saw a good deal of action in this contest. The pre-holiday scries of games was closed with a game with Macalcstcr. The Mac boys were behind for three quarters, but came through in the final one to chalk up a 39 to 37 victory. Blank contributed eleven points, as did Randles, who was playing his first game of the season. The first game after Christmas was a return tilt with St. Thomas. The Falcons made it two straight over the St. Paul boys, winning by the close score of 39 to 37. Randles scored twelve points to lead the Falcon scorers. The night following the St. Thomas game the squad traveled to Macalester, where they received a 31 to 24 setback. Blank with eleven points led the scorers of both teams. The Superior Ycllowjackcts, always a threat, furnished the opposition for the conference opening. The locals played listlessly throughout the first half and were behind 17 to 11 at the intermission. The Falcons came back strong in the second half to come through with a 42 to 40 win. Randles, O’Brien, Martin, CudneyKing, Schwartz SEASON—1937-38 Juel, superior's plash, topped both squads in scoring with fifteen points. Blank led the Falcons with ten points. The playing of Nelson at guard was outstanding, his passing being particularly effective. Stout's luckless Blue Devils almost upset the dope in the next conference game. The final score was 39 to 35. A total of twenty-nine fouls was called on both teams during the game. Blank led the scoring with ten points, followed by Cudney who had eight. Playing their third conference game within a week the Reds downed La Crosse 38 to 35. The Falcons had a 24 to 15 halftime lead. The game was very rough, a total of thirty-two fouls being called. The Falcon chances received a jolt when both centers, Larson and Schwartz, were lost by fouls, but the play of King, a freshman, was up to the standard maintained by the other two. Cudney, playing at a guard position was the offensive star, garnering a total of nineteen points. Led by Pedersen and Lehman, the Eau Claire Zornadocs handed the Falcons their first conference defeat by a 45 to 30 margin. Pedersen collected seventeen points while Lehman got 13. Blank paced the Falcon scorers with twelve points. Eau Claire showed the form in this game which enabled them to complete an undefeated conference season.SEASON—1937-38 The falcons in handing stout a 43 to 39 defeat were forced to stave off a last minute rally. Blank scored twelve points, closely followed by Cudney with nine, King with eight, and Larson and Nelson with six. Our hopes for a share in the conference title received a severe jolt when Superior handed the squad a decisive 47 to 34 beating. Although defeated, Blank managed to top both teams in scoring with fourteen points. Cudney contributed nine to the Falcon cause. Superior’s scoring was evenly divided with four of their regular men getting at least eight points. Staging a last minute rally, the locals handed the La Crosse Maroons a 47 to 45 defeat. Blank, returning to his home town, played a brilliant game, scoring nineteen points. He was given able assistance by “Swede” Nelson who garnered eleven. The game ended in an argument concerning Larson’s foul of Becker, La Crosse center. He was given two free throws, making one. The curtain was rung down against the undefeated Eau Claire squad. They kept their record unblemished, turning back the Falcons 53 to 28. Lehman, lanky center, garnered twenty-one points for his team. Blank paced the Falcons with sixteen points. This game concluded the career of Charles Cudney, who graduates in June.

The program was managed by Tom Rendler, with Fred Dubbe doing the officiating. Teams were captained by Staley, Bartz, Lu-ccnte, Marquardt, Torgerson, Hchnkc, Cass, Rundell, B. Erickson, S. Larson, Roberts, Hylkc-ma, and Frank. Each team played twelve games. As a result of a tie between Torgerson and Bartz in the league playing, a playoff game was held with Torgerson’s squad winning 28 to 25. Torgerson’s team also won the tournament which was held after the scheduled games. His team won over Frank’s by a close score of 21 to 20, with Tousley sinking the winning field-goal in the last two seconds. Medals were awarded to the Torgerson team. In the Big Ten scoring for the year Blaisdcll of Lucerne's team ranked first with a total of 115 points. The following men were picked as the leading all-around players for this year: D. Johnson (Torgerson), forward Harris (Hylkcma), forward Blaisdcll (Lucerne), forward Niccum (Larson), forward Kunny (Rundell), center Carlson (Bartz), center Frank (Frank), guard M. Erickson (Hylkema), guard Roberts (Roberts), guard 102INTRAMURAL HOCKEY Intramural hockey, under the tutelage of Mr. Setterquist, was introduced into the school's winter sports activities this year. About fifty men participated in the sport. Four teams were selected, captained by Fred Dubbe, Burton Ellig, Leo Foley, and Bob Wills. Captain Foley's squad held the upper hand throughout the winter schedule. Games were played on the newly constructed hockey rink located west of the college farm. Plans were under way for an intramural softball league. A large number of players had signed up for participation. Coach Lowery and Tom Rcndler were promoting the league. Rcndler, DubbeSetter qtiist (coach), Hermanson, Osborne, Morley, Lynda hi, Brownlee, Lyga, Bran diner, Dille, Harris Teeples, Larson, Hoagenson, Herbal, Hoey, Johnson, Blan , Readier, Moore, Ericsson, Getiinger BASEBALL With an eleven-game schedule to be played, baseball candidates began practicing outside April 19th. This year's squad was under the supervision of Coach Setterquist. Seven lettermen reported for practice. They were Blank, Herkal, Wulf, Johnson, Tceplcs, Rcnd-Icr. and Moore. From early season workouts it appeared that the lineup would he chosen from: catchers, Moore and Larson; pitchers. Blank, Teeples, Hermanson, Lyga, Brownlee, and Brandtner; in fielders, Wulf, Hoey, Johnson, Herkal and Hoagenson; outfielders, Rendler, Erickson, Osborne, and Gcttinger. Games were played with St. Cloud, Concordia, St. Thomas, Stout, Mankato, and the Stillwater Prison. In the first three games of the season. River Falls was victorious. Concordia Junior College was defeated 5 to 1. Blank allowed only three hits to the Comets. Behind Teeples, who pitched a four-hit game, the Falcons defeated St. Thomas 5 to 2. Blank won his second game of the season with a 3 to 1 victory of St. Cloud. He allowed only four hits. New red and white suits were obtained for this year’s college nine. 104Cudncy, Gillc, Sondergaard, Prncha, Cass, Devereaux Nickerson, . O’Brien, Larson, D. O’Brien MINOR SPORTS Minor sports, which began with added vigor last year, took another step this year in establishing themselves in the interest of the school. A formidable tennis team seemed likely with three veterans from last year's team back for competition, John and Dan O'Brien and Nickerson. Vying for places on this year’s team are Stuart Larson, Devereaux, Cudncy, Hchnke, and King. Schools on this year’s schedule include, St. Cloud, Concordia, Mankato, and St. Thomas. The team will complete the season by participating in the state tennis tournament at Stevens Point, May 27th. Golf was introduced into the spring sports program. Interested golfers began practicing early on the local course. A team comprised of Cudncy, Sondergaard, Devereaux, Prucha, and Gillc represented the school against La Crosse, St. Thomas, and St. Cloud. Plans were being made for the team to enter the state meet at Oshkosh, May 27th. About thirty-five enthusiastic boxers began working out in the gym early in the winter. Instructions were given by the veterans from last year’s team, headed by Don Staley. From this group Staley, Mills, Gherty, Wood, and Thocny were chosen to represent the school at the state meet at Superior April 8th and 9th. Staley, 225 pounds, and Mills, 135 pounds, lost by decisions in the finals. Gherty, Wood, and Thoeny were defeated the first night. Wood, Mal(i, Schlomann, Thoeny, Mills, GhertyH.

A. A. members arc athletic in nature, the organization sponsors two events that combine the social with the athletic. Holding to the old idea of a play-day with slight variations, the W. A. A. attempted this year for the first time to hold a tri-college sports meet. Stout, Eau Claire, and River Falls were to have competed in this meet; however, due to a previous engagement. Stout couldn't come. Competition in basketball, volleyball, pinball and swimming was the order of the day. The Eau Claire teams, displaying some fine skills and polished work, defeated the River Falls teams on a point basis to take home the Falcon Cup. This cup was donated by the River Falls W. A. A. It is planned to hold this play-day every year; the school first winning the cup three times is to keep it permanently. At a luncheon and social hour in the cafeteria ideas were exchanged. It was decided that the Eau Claire and River Falls groups would embark on a joint camping trip this spring. Every year the W. A. A. spends a week-end in May at the Y. M. C. A. Camp near Hudson. This year on the sixth and seventh of May River Falls and Eau Claire camped together. This idea of camping not only gives the women a chance to spend the weekend out-of-doors, but it also provides an opportunity for a week-end of sports. Boating, swimming, baseball and tennis get the major share of attention, but anything goes on this gay week-end Cabins for eight provide sleeping quarters, while a large mess hall a block or so away provides the food. If you're lucky or have anything to offer, you may be able to talk someone into carrying your meals down to you, otherwise you walk. A recreation hall with fireplace and piano serves as diversion on cold or rainy days. To everyone who has camped with the W. A. A. the day in spring most eagerly anticipated is camping day. Two sports of major interest that seldom get much space in print are baseball and tennis. In the spring these both occupy a great deal of the women athletes’ time, but because they arc so late, there is not much opportunity to mention them in the Melctean. However, the championship of the spring tennis tournament will probably be hard fought for by La Vcrnia Jorgensen, La Verne Jensen, Gertrude Peterson, and Eunice Manske. These four have all been either champions or runners-up. In the fall tennis tournament La Verne Jensen defeated La Vcrnia Jorgensen to win the title. MARY LOUISE BRANSTADHau n, Peterson, Parrish, Jorgensen, Griffith, Manske, Rhodey, Deiss, Creswell BASKETBALL The most popular sport on the women’s athletic program is basketball. Approximately fifty people engaged in this sport, with four regular teams competing in the tournament. These teams were captained by Phyllis Hawn, Leona Rhodey, Mildred Hennings, and Mary Griffith. The race for top honors in the tournament was interesting and close. All of the teams threatened the lead at times, but the Hennings' team held it after the first few games to win the tournament. Members of the winning team were: Bernice Deiss, Shirley Hendrickson, Effic Tobiasscn, Ardys Lundmark, Mary K. Prucha, La Vcrnia Jorgensen, Margaret H. Farrell, and Mildred Hennings. 108BASKETBALL HONOR TEAM Tiib honor team which is selected from the best players of the group consists of: Leona Rhodey, La Vernia Jorgensen, Dorothy Parrish, Lucilc Crcswcll, Gertrude Peterson, Mary K.

Bernice Lovell's team won the tournament by winning all games; Knutson's team placed second, losing only to the Lovell sauad; Rirkmosc's and Allen's teams placed third and fourth respectively. This game, introduced a few years ago, is rapidly gaining in popularity. The game resembles a combination of baseball and soccer, and is played on an indoor baseball diamond. Players picked for the Honor Team include: La Vernia Jorgensen, Mary Griffith, Elodie Knutson, Emma Svoboda, La Verne Jensen. Mildred Birkmose. Lucilc Greswdl. Mildred Pedersen, Eunice Manskc and Bernice Lovell. Sport manager for the season was Edith Stewart. 110Debs, Jensen, Striebel, Griffith, Anderson Pedersen, Tobiassen, Snow, Prucha, Lovell Stewart, Noyes, Birfynose, Rhodey HOCKEY Though the hockey crowd is small, it makes up in enthusiasm what it lacks in numbers. Two teams, captained by Lucile Creswell and Helen Pedersen, battled it out for supremacy. With three games left to play and Cres well’s team leading 4-1 in games, the Pedersen outfit tightened up to win the next three and even the series. In the play-off Pedersen's team won 2-1, making them hockey champions for the year. Because of the small crowd out for hockey, no honor team was selected. Emma Svoboda served as hockey sport head. ARCHERY Aroiiery has become a popular spring sport with the girls. However, it is chiefly an individual sport, with rivalry with oneself as well as competition against others as a constant feature. As a part of the physical education course for women Miss Branstad has been giving instruction to those who are interested in this activity. It is a sport which is easily learned. The girls, who have participated, eagerly look forward to their next session with the bow and arrow. BASEBALL Last spring the W. A. A. girls enjoyed a most successful season in baseball. A tournament was carried on, with La Vernia Jorgensen and Effic Tobiassen as captains of two teams. Many girls participated and evinced a great desire to continue the rivalry the next spring. However, due to the climatic conditions of this year they were unable to fulfill their places. The few times that they were able to meet on the baseball field showed a good turnout and a great deal of spirit and enthusiasm. Stella Tobiassen was elected sport head to manage this season, and she has chosen Leona Rhodey and Gwen Noyes to captain two teams.

Championship form has been shown not only in the state but outside; not only by the men, but also by the women. At the Wisconsin State Tournament, Dr. J. Henry Owens and Elmer Hehnke won the state doubles championship by defeating a West Allis team in the finals. Miss Louise Branstad and Eunice Manskc were runners-up in the women's doubles at this same tournament, being defeated in the finals by a West Allis women’s combination. At the Minnesota State Tournament, Dr. Owens and Miss Manskc were runners-up in the mixed doubles, losing in the finals to a Minneapolis team.BADMINTON River balls again showed its stuff by carrying off all honors in the college tournament held here the first of April. Stout and Winona, the other competing teams, were both eliminated in the semi-finals. In this tournament Elmer Hchnke and Eunice Manske won the mixed doubles crown, Mary K. Prucha and Leona Rhodcy the women's doubles title, Elmer Hehnkc and Dan O'Brien the men's doubles championship, and Mr. Hchnke and Miss Manske the men's and women's singles crowns respectively. Badminton is a coming sport in future collegiate competition, and River Falls can be expected to show up well in this growing popular game. Any school with a record like this can be very proud of it.

WYMAN 116DEBATE The river falls debate squad opened the new year with a debate tournament at Stevens Point, Wisconsin, on January 8. Marion Hawkins, Joyce Leonard, Daniel Dykstra, and Loell Larson participated in this tournament, at which the regular Pi Kappa Delta question was debated—Resolved: That the National Labor Relations Board should be empowered to enforce arbitration of all industrial disputes. Twenty-three students represented River Falk in intercollegiate debates. This extensive participation is in keeping with Dr. Wyman’s policy of permitting many students to obtain speech training. On January 14 Leonard, Hawkins, Martin, and Harris traveled to the College of St. Catherine's where they took part in “exhibition debates before public speaking classes." The following day Sirianni, Ghcrty, Larson, and Dykstra attended a preliminary tournament at St. Thomas College. On January 19 two teams, Chapman-York, Osbornc-Wcbert, went to St. Olaf College at Northfield. The following Saturday, January 22, Eau Claire Teachers College sponsored its annual debate tourney. Leonard-Hawkins and the Dykstra-Larson teams entered the "A" division and Ghcrty-Sirianni, Osborne-Wcbert teams entered the “B" division. The “A" teams tied for second place with Hamline and Eau Claire. On February 2 Central College from Fayette, Missouri, visited River Falls. Two debates were held with Sirianni-Ghcrty and Hawkins-Leonard debating. The fifth annual Red River Valley Tournament was held on February 4 and 5 at Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota. Hawkins, Leonard, Dykstra and Larson attended this tourney. Both teams won five decisions out of eight. Dual non-decision debates were held with Eau Claire on February 12. Harris-Martin, Deetz and Ronnigan represented the College squad. Aldrich-Wurtz, Molinc-Baker were guests of Hamline University on February 15. This year the debate squad extended the program to include the Whitewater Tournament which was held on February 18-19. Sirianni and Ghcrty represented River Falls. They debated Wheaton, Carrol, Oshkosh and Lawrence. For the first time River Falk debated the University of Minnesota. Hawkins-Leonard, Dykstra and Larson met the university teams on their campus. Then on March 7-8 and 9, these two teams and the Sirianni-Ghcrty combination entered the Northwest Tournament held in St. Paul. Over one hundred teams attended this tournament, which was and is one of the largest in the nation. The Leonard-Hawkins team went to the quarter finals of this tourney. Among the teams met were Nebraska Wesleyan, Doane College, Nebraska, South Dakota State, Augustana, Illinois, Stevens Point, Macalester and Concordia. Dykstra Leonard Hawkins Larson Osborne Ghcrty tyebertDeetg Moline Thompson Balder Ronnigen Martin Harris Downing Wert Wurtz DEBATE Three exhibition debates were scheduled for the women's (cam. The Hawkins-Leonard team met Macalcsicr at Ellsworth before (he Ellsworth Parent Teachers Association. On March 22 the women's team met the University of North Dakota at Hudson. Then on April 14 Miss Leonard and Miss Hawkins debated with St. Catherine’s College in an assembly debate in the River Falls auditorium. On March 19, 1938, Pi Kappa Delta sponsored its fourth annual “B” tournament. This tournament aimed to give experience to those debaters who had not debated in the Northwest Tournament. The veteran debaters acted as judges. Moline, Baker, Wurtz, Downing, Thompson, Wert, Chapman, Dcctz, Ronnigan, Wcbert, Martin, Osborne, and Harris participated. Dectz-Konnignn and Wert-Chapman teams won all their debates. Iowa State Teachers ranked first as a school in the tourney. The debate season was climaxed by the National Speech Convention held at Topeka, Kansas, on April 17-23. A new feature of the Convention was the Student Congress, modeled after the National Congress. Daniel Dykstra, president of the local chapter, served as one of the senators selected from the Upper Mississippi Province. Locll Larson and Frank Sirianni acted as representatives in the House. Miss Leonard and Miss Hawkins entered the debate division. It was the most successful convention in the history of the national forensic fraternity. The schedule of one hundred thirty debates makes this debate season the largest in forensic history. In addition to many exhibition debates the debaters entered seven tournaments. SPEECH ACTIVITIES River Falls delegates were sent to the Eau Claire Interstate Invitational Meet on February 19. Joyce Leonard won first place in the extemporaneous reading. Marion Hawkins won first place in the regional oratory. Grace Nelson entered dramatic oratory. Frank Sirianni participated in the Discussion Contest at Whitewater, Wisconsin, on the same date. Marion Hawkins and Frank Sirianni entered in oratory at the National Speech Convention at Topeka, Kansas.PI KAPPA DELTA The Wisconsin delta chapter of the Pi Kappa National forensic fraternity has completed a successful year. The chapter sponsored a high school debate tournament in November, a “B” squad debate tournament, and the league high school speech contest which was held on April 25, 1938. Five new members were added to the organization. Membership is granted in four degrees according to the forensic activity of the applicant. These are the degree of Fraternity, degree of Proficiency, degree of Honor, and degree of Special Distinction.

Up until last year new members were selected each fall by a system of voluntary "try-outs” judged by five Masquers appointed as judges the previous year. Last year an apprentice system was inaugurated as an experiment, by which it was hoped the selection of new members would become more accurate and scientific. The experiment failed to give the desired results, and this year the old system was restored. Those aspiring to membership were required to read excerpts from different plays with varied character types, give a pantomime, and demonstrate facial expression. Judgment in this type of tryout is based upon stage personality and interpretation in which enunciation, dramatic technique, interpretation, personality, and stage presence each count a certain per cent. These tryouts arc o| cn to freshmen and upper classmen alike. During the year any student who desires, whether he is a member of the Masquers or not, may try for a part in a play. If successful he is automatically admitted as a member of the organization. The main activity of this group on the campus is the presentation of plays. Activities in this line were started this year when Miss Schlosser, adviser and director, chose and cast the three act play, "A Bill of Divorcement” by Clemence Dane, for presentation during the fall term. As the presentation of a play of this type is a very complex affair, members of the Masquers who arc not in the cast assist by serving on committees in charge of lighting, properties, staging, tickets, and advertising. In the past it has been customary for the Masquers to furnish entertainment at two or three of the regular Thursday morning assemblies in the form of one-act plays. This year, under the supervision of the Student Senate, four organizations presented programs as part of a student organization program contest. The Masquers club entered this contest, and was awarded second place. A program of three one-act plays was presented in the auditorium Thursday evening. April 7. These plays were coached by members of the club. The plays which were given were “Big Game,” coached by Robert Platte, “Three Wishes,” directed by John Bradley, and “Grandma Pulls the Strings," produced by Robert Knowles. Meetings are held every second Thursday at seven P. M. At these meetings various programs are given. The feature program this year was a demonstrated lecture on the art of make-up by Professor Carlton Ames. Occasionally these meetings take the form of parties with dancing and refreshments. In addition to their work in the field of drama the Masquers are very active in other events of the school. Stunts and programs for the mass meetings and spring vaudeville arc always forthcoming, and there is sure to be a Masquers’ float in the Homecoming parade. The social side of this group’s activities is climaxed by their annual formal. This year the decorations transformed North Hall Gymnasium into a pirate ship with all the trimmings. Benet Greten furnished the music. In the spring the year’s activities are concluded at the annual formal banquet, at which time the officers for the ensuing year are chosen.A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT By Clcmence Dane CAST Margaret Fairfield........................Joyce Leonard Miss Hester Fairfield..............Olive Joos Sydney Fairfield..................Ruth Phillips Bassett......................Betty Jane Hogue Gray Meredith.....................Nevin White Kit Pumphrcy............................William Carlson Hilary Fairfield..................John Bradley Dr. Alliott.......................Edwin Baker The Rev.

When it was learned that Mr. Crabtree had accepted the invitation to be the honored guest the preparations for Homecoming were begun with great enthusiasm. Bob Johnson was elected chairman of the Homecoming committee by secret ballot in assembly, a position which he filled in his customary efficient manner. You sec him with a pair of lovely charmers toward the bottom of the page. He was ably assisted by Niles Grunke, chairman of stunts; Frank Sirianni, float chairman; Bob Kettel-kamp, chairman of street decoration; Norman Sodcrstrom, chairman of campus decoration, and many others. Two former coaches were present to greet the student body. Mr. Swenson, our first and largest coach, is shown with Mr. Lowery, our present and smallest coach. Mr. Swenson was athletic director during Mr. Crabtrees administration. He resigned and is now educational director at Stockton, California. Otto Eggebrecht, at top, was a member of the football team from 1915 to 1917. He returned to River Falls in 1922 to serve as football coach for two years. He is now in the automobile business at Wausau, Wisconsin. Also featured were the members of the class of 1912, the graduating class of President Crabtree’s first year at River Falls. 138Former faculty members also present were Rexford Mitchell, a former debate coach; Ray Erlandson, a former teacher of forensics; and Miss Mary 13. McMillan, a former instructor in mathematics. Homecoming began with the reception of former President J. W. Crabtree at 3:00 P. M., October 15, in the Social Room. At 8:00 o’clock the mass meeting started in the college auditorium. The first event on the Homecoming program was the coronation of lovely Harriet Campbell as queen of festivities by Robert Johnson. Attending the queen were Helen Hickox, Ruth Moen, Laurainc Isaacson, and Ruth Phillips. The queen had been elected from the above group of girls at assembly by the student body. The ceremony, accompanied by a fanfare of trumpets, a march, and the pledge song, was quite impressive. A new feature this year was the rooters club, an organization promoted for the purpose of giving volume and vigor to our cheers. A distinctive red, tasslcd Mexican hat was offered as an inducement to join the club. The club sat in a body and was very effective at the mass meeting. 139Mr. Hum, who was master of cere monies, introduced the speakers and stunts that made up the program. Mr. Crabtree was, of course, an honored speaker. Members of the class of 1912 and some of Mr. Swenson’s old athletes were introduced by President Ames. Other speakers were Otto Eg-gebrecht, Bert Swenson, and Rexford Mitchell. Stunts were given by the G. O. P., the German Club, and the Masquers. The G. O. P. with their parody of "Ten Little Indians” won the first prize of two dollars. The yelling was conducted by several cheer leaders, the best of which was "Red” Jones who reached the top of his form Homecoming Night. After the mass meeting the traditional torchlight parade was held. The parade went down Main Street, ending at the bonfire at Ramer Field. A stunt by the W. A. A. and yell leading by “Red” Jones were featured. Unfortunately Saturday dawned rainy, rather a let down from the peppy start at the mass meeting. The parade came off late, but considering the handicaps it was a good show. The throne-like Y. M. C. A. float with the Homecoming queen and attendants was the outstanding feature. The Mathematics Club took first prize in comic floats, with a team of "gunny-sack ' oxen and a covered wagon. 140The first prize was awarded to the Sophomore Class for depicting “stump warfare” between the Indians and the pioneers. The F. F. A., with their ear of corn, carried away second honors. Other good floats were shown, including the freshman covered wagon, the colorful model T from the boys who stay at Brandts, and the hospital for sick Indians drawn by a pony. Reunion luncheons were held: among them the Y. M. C. A. at Professor Jacobson’s home and the Y. W. C. A. at the college cafeteria. The football game was held at 2:00 o’clock, Saturday, October 16. Regardless of the rainy weather there was a good turn out. In spite of dampened clothes and spirits, the marching band, led by Burr Wiger, put on as fine a performance as we have had in years. Unfortunately the game did not. come out so well. The best that we could do was a scoreless tic. The annual football dinner was held at 6:00 o’clock. All lettermen of President Crabtree’s time were invited as guests of the school. At 8:30 the Homecoming dance began. The music was furnished by Tom Gates and his orchestra. 141142143Two new functions on the social calendar which helped to promote the social side of school life were the Masquerade, and the Winter Sports Coronation and Ball. Along with the regular school dances and organization formats, terminating in the Junior Prom, these additions kept the social life on a high standard. The R Club, composed of the letter-men of the college, worked diligently without the aid of the feminine touch to make a success of their formal, which was held April 23rd. The all-school masquerade was a joyous success. A capacity crowd attended this affair. It was held April 1st. Prizes were awarded. The feuding Wymans and Williams won the group prize. Carlton Ames and Rachel Aldrich were named the best dressed couple. Hilbert Jones, the Prussian soldier, was the most comical man. The Winter Sports Coronation and Ball was held February 26th with Fred A’fonse and Leona Rhodcy king and queen. The dance followed the coronation, with the king and queen doing a solo to start the affair. Other regular dances on the social program included frequent all-school informal dances, Homecoming dance, G. O. P. formal, Masquers formal, and Junior Prom. 1441938 saw an innovation in assembly program presentation. During the major part of the second semester entertainment was furnished by student organizations, entered in a prize contest sponsored by the Student Senate. The first to appear, and also the prize winning group, was the Honor Society with their full hour radio program, consisting of everything from an excellent trio to a complete orchestra. The F. F. A. group gave a Professor Quiz program. River Falls style, complete with prizes and awards. Masquers became quite original with the “feudin’ ’n a fightiiv ” marriage of Hepsibah Williams and Bodaccous Wyman. The Student Voice presented a comedy. Shortly after Christmas the Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. presented at a regular Monday night meeting a very excellent temperance play in which Muriel Taylor, Norman Soderstrom, Joyce Odell, and Willard Lane carried the parts. Leona Rhodey and Fred Alfonse were elected Winter Carnival Queen and King and crowned at an impressive ceremony on South Hall campus iu the latter part of February. One of the interesting assembly programs of the year was presented in April by a group of entertainers who sang and played the bells. 145Every coeducational institution has its inseparable couples. At River Falls they can be seen almost any where and any time. The periodical library is one of the favorite haunts, but most any place will do. Brandt drives her to and from school and Ruthie seems to be looking for someone. Tuck was so engrossed in what Mrs. Eide was telling him that he didn’t even see this one being snapped. Glen’s expression here is a far cry from his pugilistic countenance. Hiking is a hobby for some and Lucille takes off her stockings to go wading. When the dean of men and the registrar look like this, someone’s welfare must be involved. This snap was taken the day before the spring valentines came out. Students do many things for recreation. Flash and Polly like to box, Howard plays hopscotch with a group of the fairer sex, and H. J. H. Hank makes use of some youngster’s wagon on which to do his daily dozen. Leona was really amazed to sec the photographer. Christie is one of the most pleasing and accommodating characters on the campus, also one of the oldest. The picture of the surveyor is a good study in concentration. Bill Lane and the girls on the sidelines both seem to have something to makes faces at, only why so different? 146The most popular gathering place in college for the girls is their South Hall Social Room where they play cards, read, study, or just gossip. Ruth Sampson makes what to us seems like a perfect reproduction of “The Song of the Lark.” Among the many hobbies that college boys have is Colonel’s colony of white mice. Boys and girls alike participate in the most popular hobby in college, hiking. With the excellent opportunities that the creeks and hills around the Falls afford the student body, jaunts in couples or groups are very common. Winter or summer one finds students strolling down along the creek or up on the mounds. In the spring as soon as the snow leaves and until late fall any evening will find many groups of picnickers up on the mound or down by the forks. Wiener and marshmallow roasts are popular ways of spending an evening for the organizations of the college. In the winter the hills around the campus furnish splendid slopes for skiing and tobogganing. This season under the direction of Lor-rie Knutson a very fine toboggan slide was constructed on one of the mounds north of town. The slide was put to enjoyable use by many groups during the mild winter of 1937-38. 147Axiosc the outstanding features of (he R. F. S. T. C. are (he boarding dubs. The original “Fox's Club grew un(il (his season i( had (o be divided into (wo sections of fifty boys each. The dubs are of a cooperative nature, the boys furnishing the food and paying a small sum per week for the cooking. Eddie Cass is the chief steward, by election, of both clubs. Assisting him at Foxes is Fred Brechlin, and at Macs is Marcel Nelson. Of the private boarding and rooming houses Fry's with its annual Christmas party is typical. Typical alio was the one A. M. call to a sleepy-eyed photographer to take the picture. Each year at the conclusion of the football season the athletic council treats the players to a banquet in the college cafeteria. Over fifty men and faculty members attended this year's event. Not at all apart from college is the freshman and his unrestricted appetite for study. After spending all Sunday afternoon and evening reading the funnies and Colliers, Maki finally knuckles down to Ted's Chemistry at 11:30 P. M. Exemplifying the work of advanced Physics students this group of Heat boys constructed their own apparatus care fully enough to get very accurate results.

The purpose is to promote the best interest of the college and to act as an agency through which the students may voice their desires. This organization is composed of eleven members, seven of whom arc elected by the student body at large and four of whom serve as class presidents. The general election is held not later than the second week in May at which time the members arc selected for the following school year. Since the Student Senate has been in operation only one year, much of its work has been confined to matters of organization and regulation. The Student Social Committee was reorganized by the Senate, and its parties and disbursement of funds was made subject to the Senate's approval. The Senate also drew up a social calendar at the beginning of each term giving the dates of important social events and assigning time for organization meetings during the following twelve weeks. Campus concessions of various types were regulated by this organization, the object being to prevent duplication. Nominees for Homecoming queen and Homecoming chairman were selected by the Senate and submitted to the student body. A student cheering association headed by Mildred Pedersen and Frank Sirianni was another feature of their work. An ice carnival was also planned and sponsored by the Senate, and, although King Winter prevented the outdoor events, the carnival dance was a huge success, so, no doubt, ice carnivals will become annual events. In addition to these activities the Senate often acted as the agent of the students in making requests of the proper authorities. At present the Senate, as part of a freshman orientation program, is working on a booklet which is to be given to all freshmen at the opening day of school. This folder will contain numerous items of helpful information, such as house regulations, names and purposes of the various college organizations, a classroom directory, and a program of events for the opening week of school. The Senate has constantly tried to represent the best interests of the students. In doing this they have held assembly “kick sessions” at which time the students were invited to make suggestions and voice criticisms. Numerous ballots asking for student opinion were also submitted to the assembly in order that the Senate might be guided by the desires of the majority of the students.Lindh Condit Peabody THE HONOR SOCIETY OFFICERS Gordon Condit.....

It functions chiefly as a social organization, monthly parties or other activities being held for the enjoyment of the members. The organization originated in the custom of the faculty giving a tea for the honor students. Later this group met for other activities, and from this beginning the organization developed as it is today. Mrs. Bide serves as faculty adviser for the group, and her helpful suggestions arc often responsible for a successful party. A hike and marshmallow roast on the mound furnished the first activity of the school year. Parties since then at which various games have been played have been held in the Social Room. It must be admitted that the Honor Society has not undertaken any activities requiring very great intellectual effort, but the idea has been that the members were looking for a good time rather than for a mental workout. However, the artistic ability of manjr members was severely tried when it was necessary for them to keep score at the "Yap' party. The legendary characters, King of the Bean, Queen of the Bath, and Knight of the Garter were chosen and crowned at the Twelfth Night Party. The King had the power of requiring services of his subjects. This privilege was used to full advantage. At another party members were entertained with games such as box-hockey, fiddle-stix, and cards. The need for taking contributions at parties ended when the Honor Society was fortunate enough to win the student assembly program prize of varied entertainment. Under the direction of Marion Larson and sponsored by Dr. Kettlekamp’s "Kill or Cure,” the program featured Carlo Millcrinski’s Red Hussars, vocal and instrumental numbers, the Winchcll of the campus, and a death-defying skit. Adept announcing and skillful advertising were sprinkled liberally throughout the program, which also boasted several musical numbers composed by Society members. "Kill or Cure” received such favorable publicity that repercussions were heard for several months afterwards. Later in the year a Scavenger Hunt was held. An odd array of articles varying from baby carriages to football players was brought in. Other activities, including a picnic out of town, arc planned for the remainder of the school year. The work of planning the lunches and entertainment for the parties has been carried on by committees of members who have been very successful in providing enjoyable recreation. The emblem of the Honor Society is a small silver “R”, to which any member is entitled after he has had his name on the honor roll for one term. A gold "R” is the reward for all who, at the completion of their courses, have earned two and one-fourth honor points per credit hour and have no grade less than C. Those having earned only two honor points per credit hour receive honorable mention. MARGARET CHAPMAN EIDEKnutson, Getlinger, H. Elliott, Whitemarsh, F. Elliott, Benson R. Johnson, Johansen, E.

JACOBSONTHE YOUNG MEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The student y. m. c. a. at River Falls is not only a local organization, but is affiliated with the National Student Y. M. C. A. The purpose of the organization is to offer to every man in college an opportunity to participate in a program for the development of Christian personality, and to influence the thinking of the college toward a Christian solution of campus, community, and world problems. The Monday night meetings are usually opened by musical numbers and a short prayer. The main part of the program consists of a talk on some important subject by a speaker who is informed on the topic. This year a number of men in different professions talked on one subject; namely, "What Should Students Be Thinking About.” Some of the speakers in this group were Dr. Karges, Mr. Ames, Reverend Zoerb, Dr. Nash, Mr. Malott, Mr. George Gallos, Dr. Wyman, Mr. Hall, Mr. Lamb, and Mr. Behlmer Carisch. Later in the year a panel of college men from our own campus gave their own opinions and comments on the subject of war and pacifism. This was followed by an address on the same subject by Mr. Phillip Meighan, a student at the University of Minnesota. Mr. Robert Johnson, the North Central Area student secretary, visited the campus in April and addressed the members at a Monday night meeting. This year a Junior Hi-Y Club was organized in the training school under the sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A. and the direction of Myron Johansen. The club consists of interested boys from the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. This club, with the aid of the Y. M. C. A. cabinet, sponsored a Christmas party for the pupils in the college training school. The Hi-Y Club along with the Junior cabinet, which was organized mainly for freshmen college students, were perhaps two of the outstanding features of the Y. M. C. A. program this year. The annual stag party with the traditional "bean soup” was held during February. This was well attended by the men students and the faculty. The program consisted of athletic activities and a mock trial. Various activities were sponsored jointly with the Y. W. C. A. Among these was a freshman mixer held in the evening of the opening day of school. This gave the freshmen an opportunity to get acquainted with each other, with some upper-classmen, and with members of the faculty. Also a joint series of discussion groups were held during the month of February. Four topics of interest were discussed under the leadership of students assisted by a faculty resource man. Three vesper services were sponsored jointly by the two "Y" groups on the campus. These services were held at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. They consisted of individual worship led only by organ music. The fall and spring retreats were held at Big Lake near Osceola. Mr. Robert Johnson, the area student secretary, was present on both of these occasions. These retreats arc held for the purpose of giving cabinet training and planning the Y. M. C. A. program. The annual student "Y” conference was again held at Camp Ihduhapi on Lake Independence. A large group from River Falls attended. This conference includes in its membership student organizations in northwestern Wisconsin and in Minnesota. This year the student conference which is held at Lake Geneva each summer was attended by Professor Jacobson, Bob Johnson, Edwin Baker, Glenn Benson, and Myron Johansen. One of the outstanding events of the year in the student Christian field was the National Assembly of Student Christian Associations at Oxford, Ohio. This assembly was held during the Christmas holidays, and was attended by Professor Jacobson, Franklin Elliott, and Bob. Johnson. The River Falls student Y. M. C. A. presented an exhibit at this assembly which showed the complete program of the organization. Many favorable comments were received on the exhibit, and many students received ideas from it to take back with them to their home organizations. Open house was held in the Men's Union at the beginning of each term. These meetings were social occasions only and ended with refreshments. The Y. M. C. A. again built the float for the queen in the Homecoming parade. Also the annual Homecoming banquet was held. This was well attended by many former cabinet members. The final meeting of the year was the installation banquet at the Congregational Church. Ten new cabinet members, and next year’s officers of the organization were installed at this time. 155THE YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION CABINET Olive Joos Mildred Pedersen Alice Lien Lillie Ahlgren Mary Griffith Elza Lou Hanna Betty Jane Hogue Joyce Leonard ...........President ......Vice-President ...........Secretary Treasurer Mildred Le Page Mae Nelson Gertrude Peterson Phyllis Soderstrom Mrs. Williams .

The governing body of the organization is the cabinet of twelve girls, four of whom arc officers. The other eight act as committee heads, directing the various Y. W. activities. This year an advisory board was elected rather than a single adviser as the organization has formerly had. Members of the board are Mrs. Justin Williams, chairman. Miss Irma Hathorn, Miss Mabel Bridges, and Mrs. Jesse Symcs. The regular Monday night “Y” meetings this year were devoted to projects and to programs. A dancing class for beginners, a knitting class, and dramatics class were among the early group projects. At Christmas the girls cooperated successfully in a social service project. February discussion meetings, sponsored jointly by the Y. W. and the Y. M. C. A., were concerned with problems of vital interest to college students. A “Co-ediquette Lab” and a spring style show were other projects. Musical programs, speakers, an amateur hour, and informal discussions were featured at other regular meetings. This year a new form of worship service with a background of organ music was initiated by the two Y’s on the campus. Vesper services effectively using this type of worship were held in the various churches at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Harriet Campbell acted as organist. Finance projects this year included hot dog and candy sales, serving refreshments at school dances, and the sale of school pennants and stickers. Outstanding social events of the year were the freshman mixer, the campus sister tea, and the annual PulT-Pant-Prom, attended by 100 girls. Our traveling secretary, Eleanor Dahl Fairchild, was a campus guest twice during the year. Y. W. C. A. cabinets from the student organizations at Eau Claire and Mcnomonic were entertained at River Falls. An important undertaking this year was the beginning of a Geneva fund from which girls can borrow to attend the Y. W. C. A. conference at Geneva. Other conferences attended by Y. W. girls this year were the area meeting at the University of Minnesota and the spring area conference at Lake Independence, Minnesota. IRMA HATHORNFUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA Myron Johansen ..

The organization feels that a wry successful year has just been completed and that it is a valuable asset to the agricultural department. Alumni have passed favorable comments on the organization, saying that it is a very essential part of the education of a vocational agricultural teacher. Collegiate Future Farmers chapters arc chartered by and arc under the authority cf the state associations of the Future Farmers of America. The sole purpose of such chapters is the training of prospective teachers of vocational agriculture in their duties as local advisers of high school chapters. The purposes as drawn up by the constitution of the local chapter arc: To develop competent and constructive rural and agricultural leadership, an appreciation of wholesome companionship, and the ability to cooperate harmoniously and successfully, efficient leadership for young men’s organizations and an interest in the problems of agriculture and farm life. To strengthen the confidence of "the trainee in vocational agricultural education in himself and his work; to create an appreciation of the intelligent choice of farming enterprises and an interest in the improved use of leisure time. To train for better home and family life and to improve the rural home and its surroundings. To develop an appreciation of intelligent cooperation in economic activities; to promote thrift among students of vocational education in agriculture; to encourage and improve scholarship. To encourage cooperate activity and effort among students in vocational education in agriculture; to develop character and personality in students in vocational agricultural education. To encourage organized recreational activities among students of vocational agriculture. To develop an appreciation of the efficient management of farm business.

Membership is voluntary, but it has been customary for all students in the department to be members of the club. Miss Jorstad is the faculty adviser. Regular meetings are held the first and third Thursdays of each month. It is the plan of the club to provide programs that give practice in organization and management and that feature educational topics of interest and value to the rural teacher. The programs were under the able direction of Margaret Erickson for the first half year and of Florence Freier for the last half of the year. These girls have devoted much time and effort to giving to the programs the valuable features that they have had during the year. People outside the club who have assisted in providing the educational aspects of the year's program are Miss Latta and Mr. Malott of the college faculty, Mrs. Malott, Mrs. Patton of the training school, and Mr. Paul Gleiter, supervising teacher in St. Croix county. In addition to the purely educational programs the club enjoyed in December its annual Christmas party, featuring games, refreshments, and presents from the tree. In February several members of the freshman class presented the humorous play “Pepping Up the P. T. A." In April the first ten sophomores to secure teaching positions entertained the club with a picnic at Glen Park. One of the important phases of the rural work is the placing of all second-year students in rural schools of Pierce and St. Croix counties for a six weeks’ practice period. During this time the students live in the community, share the regular classes and the work of the school and attempt to crowd into the time allotted as many as possible of the experiences that they as rural teachers will need. The schools chosen for practice this year were the Oak Grove School, Mayme Larson, teacher; the Clifton Hollow School, Lillian Woods, teacher; and the Herum School, Florence Jensen, teacher. During the first six weeks of the winter term the following people were in the practice schools: Vivian Lindus, Ardyth Grupc, Marion Anderson, and Margaret Nelson at Oak Grove school; Margaret Erickson, Marie Hetrick, Joyce Snow, and Edith Stewart at Clifton Hollow school, and Russel Larson, Elwood Linder, Lu Verne Johnson, and Violet Lubnow at Herum school. At the end of the six weeks these students returned to the college to take practice in the training school, and the remaining group went out for rural practice. These were Marcia Nelson, Velma Livingston, Mary McCardle, and Isabel Murphy at Herum school and Ellen Selvig, Effic Tobiasscn, and Stella Tobiassen at the Clifton Hollow school. In spite of complaints heard occasionally about the cold and the inconvenience of country life the practice teachers enjoyed the work and the friendships made in the rural communities.

Membership in this organization is open to all students who arc taking courses in science. Regular meetings of the club are held on alternate Tuesday evenings in the chemistry lecture room. Fourteen meetings were held during the past year. At most of these meetings educational films on some phase of science were shown. At each of these meetings one of the faculty members from the science department discussed and explained the film being shown. Most of the films which were shown were borrowed from the Bureau of Mines of the Department of the Interior in Pittsburgh, while some of them were owned by the Wisconsin Conservation Department, and one was secured through the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The moving pictures shown during the year included the following: The Story of n Gasoline Motor, The Story of a Storage Battery, Through the Oil Lands of Europe, Nickel, Maying an All-Steel Automobile Body, Mushrooms of Wisconsin, Game Birds of Many Nations, Evolution of the Oil Industry, Maying a V-lype Automobile Engine, The Romance of Rubber, Fishing, Spring and Summer Wild Flowers of Wisconsin, Vacationland. One of the interesting features of the program this year was the programs which were sponsored by the different departments of science. In each of these programs students from the department put on demonstrations of some of the more spectacular and unusual phases of their particular science. The first of these departmental programs was sponsored by the department of physics on January twenty-fifth. The program consisted of demonstrations of the photo-electric cell, the cathode ray oscillograph, and discharges through gases. Many things were shown which were of general interest and were of the type used chiefly in the advanced physics courses. The program of the chemistry department was given on March twenty-second, and the biology department gave its program on the nineteenth of April. The program of the physics department was given a few weeks later at a P. T. A. program in Hammond. The year’s activity was ended by a tour through the Ford Motor Company's assembly plant in St. Paul late in May. About forty members made this tour, and the group was conducted through the plant by a special guide provided by the Ford Motor Company. This tour covered the entire plant including the glass factory. Plans for the club for next year include moving pictures and out-of-town speakers. The Science Club has grown each year since it was started three years ago, and it is expected that it will continue to become more popular in the future. ROY E.

The monthly programs are entirely student-presented by members of the club. In addition to the regular meetings this year’s members of the club have attempted to keep the bulletin board in the mathematics room provided with timely mathematical history, mathematical quotations, suggested reading and various puzzle problems of interest to those taking mathematics. At Homecoming the Club entered a comic float in the parade. This float, a diminutive covered wagon pulled by two large burlap-covered man-propelled oxen, won first prize in its class. Varied programs were presented at the regular monthly meetings. At the first meeting, October 13, Ruth Nelson presented a review of the brilliant, but tragic, life of the French mathematician, Galois, who died at the age of twenty-one. Following this four sophomores, Loren Lund, Carl Miller, Donald Monson, and Willard Klugow matched wits in a mathematical “Professor Quiz” contest patterned after the popular radio program. Loren Lund was presented with first prize. On March 10 Ralph Baker discussed “Linkages" with the aid of many mathematical devices he had constructed. At this meeting Gilbert Mattson reviewed the life of James Joseph Sylvester, English mathematician, who was interested in this subject of Linkages. The annual Christmas party was held December 8 in the South Hall Social Room. A Newtonian roll call, a sentence-bysentence history of Newton’s life, was followed by a mathematical game originated by Loren Lund and Nils Sondergaard. Following refreshments, Lucille Stricbel directed the singing of a song, “Mathematics,” which she had composed. At the January meeting Kenneth Heideman told of the life of Ernst Edward Kumnicr, a German mathematician, important in the field of Theory of Numbers. Mathematical puzzles and card tricks were demonstrated by Carl Miller. On February 23 Harold Fjeseth went somewhat into the field of science and presented an interesting biography from the recent book Madame Curie. David Wicken presented an interesting review of the chapter on "Graphs' from Lancelot Hogben’s Mathematics for the Millions. At the March meeting Loyal Joos showed how to construct “Magic Squares” and presented some which he had constructed. Congruences and how they are used in solving puzzle problems where one has a linear equation in two unknowns were shown by Russell Gettinger. At the following meeting Marcel Nelson discussed the life of Karl Friedrich Gauss, and Reynold Pederson told about “Railroad Curves” and other engineering problems. At the last regular meeting Reuben Hermanson discussed “Mathematics of Navigation.” As usual the year's program dosed with a picnic enjoyed by a large number of Mathematics Club members. The following committee was in charge of program planning for the past year: Russell Gettinger, chairman, Ralph Baker, secretary, Loren Lund, and Nils Sondergaard. 165Peterson, Severson, Hilyar THE PALETTE CLUB THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL Gertrude Peterson.............................Chairman Dorothy Severson...................Secretary-Treasurer Betty Hilyar Miss Greene..................Adviser Jeanne Brakken Franklin Elliott Gladys Mcrstrum Betty Hilyar Frederick Johnson Joseph Hyde MEMBERS Vera Klimper Norma Marek Ruth Mocn Edna Moline Gertrude Peterson Catherine Salmon Dorothy Severson Paul Somsen Jean Susan Gee re Shirley Swann Meta WrightTHE PALETTE CLUB The palette club is an organization of students with a mutual interest in art for the purpose of increasing their understanding and appreciation of art as well as encouraging the development of technique, crafts, and special interests. The executive duties are taken care of by the executive committee. The chairman of this committee presides over the general meetings. Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at seven o'clock in the art room. During the first weeks of the school year the last year’s members met for some outdoor sketching in charcoal, supper with Mi's Greene, and election cf cfhcers. Later in the term new members were admitted to the club, making a membership of twenty. One of the major activities of the organization this year was the making of a calendar with an original linoleum block print, illustrating some phase of school life for each month. Various themes were suggested and selections were made for the design. The linoleum blocks were completed, and the calendar came off the press shortly before Christmas. They were sold on the campus. Another activity was the decoration of the buildings at Christmas time. Under the sponsorship of the Student Senate and with some help from ocher students the halls were given a festive Christmas atmosphere. Pine cones in brilliant colors, evergreens, and crepe paper in the traditional red and green were used. An imitation of a large stained glass window was erected in the hall just beyond the Social Room, and lighted Christmas trees stood in both buildings. This is the first year that the buildings have been decorated at Christmas. The Christmas spirit was stimulated by the festive decorations on the campus. Members were allowed to work on individual projects for several meetings. Beaded purses, carved wooden plates, soap carving, and other handcraft products were made. One meeting was devoted to sketching heads and faces with emphasis on securing a nice play of light and shadow. Another meeting was given to the study of water color technique. Miss Greene demonstrated the modern technique, and the members tried their hands at producing the different effects which she had procured. Last spring the club subscribed to an art magazine, “The Art Instructor,” which we received monthly and kept in the art room for members to read. Many valuable suggestions and much worthwhile information was obtained from it. The year closed with a picnic and the election of a chairman for the following year.

O. P. The celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the G. O. P. in the spring of 1937 brought much inspiration to the present members of the organization. Charter G. O. P. members who attended the anniversary banquet gave an interesting picture of the early club. Having as their main purpose the promotion of school “pep,” the G. O. P. girls of 1912 devised ingenious money-making schemes, and spent their funds in accompanying River Falls athletic teams on conference trips. These enthusiastic coeds, gayly dressed in the school colors, helped to cheer many a former Falcon team to victory. From these early beginnings as a “pep" organization, the G. O. P. has developed many broader purposes. In addition to fostering school spirit, the club now aims to support all school activities, as well as to establish high standards of character and social development within the group. The members of the G. O. P. at their fall meeting held at Miss Greene’s apartment, decided to make the influence of their organization even more vitally felt on the campus this year. In line with this policy the club took an important part in the celebration of the sixteenth annual homecoming. Dressed as fierce Indian braves the G. O. P. girls won first prize for their stunt given at the all-school mass meeting. The G. O. P. banquet was attended by an unusually large crowd of alumni who had returned for the special Homecoming activities. Fourteen new members were taken into the G. O. P. immediately before the Christmas recess. The pledges were entertained by the old members at a tea given in the social room, and they were subjected to some highly original initiation rules devised by their cruel older sisters. Qualifications governing the selection of G. O. P. members include high scholarship, personality, a wide variety of interests, and leadership ability. All G. O. P. members must maintain a certain scholastic standard. A preference is given to the girls who are in the four-year degree courses. The main event of the year was the G. O. P. formal. In order to prevent a crowding of social activities on the spring calendar, the dance was given during the winter season. A fairyland of cotton snowflakes was the artistic setting for the affair. Both socially and financially the formal was a complete success. G. O. P. members found useful outlets for the surplus funds which the organization had in its treasury this year. As a token of appreciation for the kindliness of their adviser, the girls presented Miss Greene with a gift. Three colorful hassocks were given by the club to the social room. Other funds of the organization were used to pay the expenses of the members who went to the city to attend a play. During the spring term the G. O. P. turned to the cultivation of social abilities. Several of the meetings were used as instruction periods in the learning of contract bridge. The G. O. P., very capably led by Mildred Pedersen, concluded a successful year with the annual commencement luncheon held in honor of returning alumnae and the present graduates. 169D. Johnson, Hichpx, N.

It is open to all students interested in the German language or in German customs, arts, and personalities. The aims of the society are various: to afford those interested in German an opportunity for social contact, to develop skill in using and understanding spoken German, to gain a knowledge of German life, customs and arts, and to promote an understanding of contemporary German history and an acquaintance with great German personalities. The programs and activities throughout the year arc designed to carry out these aims. Due to many conflicts we have been unable to have as many meetings this year as originally intended. Yet a few programs and activities are outstanding. At one of our most successful meetings Dr. Catherine Licncman gave an interesting account of her previous summer in Germany, emphasizing the customs of the people as she observed them. We were also delightfully entertained by the German band. This year Die Deutsche Gesellschaft presented a stunt at the annual Homecoming mass meeting. It involved folk dances with music by the German band. The largest social function which the club put on this year was a dancing party for all the members and their guests in the South Hall gymnasium. Group singing of German songs comprises an enjoyable part of each meeting. It is also customary to play various German games such as “Sind Sie mit Ihrcn Nachbar zufrieden? ’ and “Schnitzclbank” to enliven the social hour following each program. The club has no regular dues, but is privileged to make small charges for refreshments and other incidentals as the need arises. This is to encourage a wide membership. Much interest in Die Deutsche Gesellschaft is due largely to “the grand old man of the campus,” Herr Whitenack, who is our highly respected adviser. His ready wit, versatile knowledge, and linguistic fluency made him a favorite speaker. E. A.
