The primary aim of the makers of this book has been to discover and record by word and picture those things that have made this year different from any other year and have given it the right to claim its own place in the chronicles of student life. Our secondary aim has been to record that commonplace but necessary information which is needed to make the record of any year complete.
We have enjoyed our task; we hope you will enjoy the book.SOUTH HALL

Thomas H. Skemp Im CrossePRESIDENT J. H. AMESStudents of 1941 are facing a future full of uncertainties. There is evidence all about us that the minds of men arc full of confusion and doubt. Should this be true? Confusion as to what? Doubt of whom?
We are certain of some great and abiding values. Whatever else democracy may mean and imply, it places a high value on the worth of the individual human being and his right to a voice in determining his own destiny. Is there doubt as to the worthiness of this ideal?
The young men and women in our colleges are conscious of the priceless value of freedom as enjoyed in our country. We shall not surrender to forces which would destroy it by establishing in the world a new order designed to elevate an economic and political system and to depreciate the individual. We are not willing to surrender that for which men have striven through the years. We will not discard this pattern of life to accept a new model.
Believing in ourselves and in the ideals upon which our social order is based, we must be prepared to defend these principles in order that the American way of life—our way of life—may not perish from the earth.

in the A” division and first place in the 11" divis.on. We into battle at the Red River Valley Tournament on Mardi 3. wne teams (Willink-Prucha, Clan man-Chapman. Lynch-Webb. and Raawe) made a worthy record. Prucha and Willink won six padtmman rounds but lost to Gustavus in thc quarter-finals. Lynch and Webb won six preliminary debates, thus qualifying for competition in the finals which Aberdeen won. inus this team placed second in that tournament. Individual entries in the contest were: in ex tempore argument, Prucha. Raawe. and Kramschuster. the latter placing fourth; in ex tempore speaking. Raawe; in poetry reading, Lynch, placing second; in discussion. Everett Chapman.
At the Stevens Point Tournament on February 21, 22. two teams (Willink-Prucha and Kramschuster-Lynch) each won six out of their eight debates. 1 he women tied for second place with St. Catherine’s.
When our four teams invaded St. Catherine’s and St. Thomas's Colleges (Prucha-Willink and Glan man-Chapman at St. Thomas’s and Wcbb-Raawc and Kramschuster-Lynch at St. Catherine's) for the Northwest Tournament on March 3, 1. 5, they finished the season, winning 60 percent of their tournament debates.
Between the various tournaments, our debaters were holding practice clashes with Hamline, St. Olaf, and Stevens Point. Paul Prudia and Everett Chapman met two negro debaters from LeMoyne College, Memphis. Tennessee, on February 27 in an inter-racial clash. This debate was held in thc auditorium before an audience of over 300.

The biggest event of the year for River Falls squad members was die Pi Kappa Delia Provincial Tournament held in River Falls April 5. Pi Kappa Della Presideni Prucha ordered squads right or squads left while our members took pari in many individual contests. Raawc won second place in cx-tcmporc speaking. Kramschuster first in women’s discussion and second in women’s newscasting. Webb first in women’s after-dinner speaking. Lynch second in poetry reading and fourth in oratory. Other entries were Chapman in men’s discussion. Glanzman in orators , and Martin in men's after-dinner speaking.
Throughout the year we admirably survived the many battles. True, there were a few casualties, but in general all came through better off for their experiences. It is only fitting that we award crosses for distinguished service to this year’s veterans who arc receiving their honorable discharges. They arc Paul Prucha, Everett Chapman. Keith Wurtz, and Don Martin.
We ended the year by invading the Eau Claire territory again for a speech contest on April 26. The results were: Kramschuster first in newscasting, Raawc first in ex-tempore speaking and second in impromptu speaking. Lynch second in oratory and fourth in prose reading and newscasting. Hopkins third in poetry and prose reading; Griffith, fourth in poetry reading. Added up, our points made R. F. S. T. C. winners of this tournament.

NELLE L. SCHLOSSERNIGHT MUST FALL
The annual thrcc-act play presented by the Masquers this year was Einlvn Williams' Night Musi Fall. It is a psychological thriller—the study of a coldblooded murderer whose deliberate and incredibly arrogant machinations
I wove very exciting across the foot-ights.
James Grunkc as Dan is a bellboy in a resort hotel remotely located in Essex. Having seduced Dora Parko (June Healy), maid at Mrs. Bram-son's (Georgia Hopkins). Dan is summoned to Sirs. Bramson's cottage.
Such is his charm that Mrs. Bramson is immediately taken with him, adding him to her household servants.
The murder of a guest at the hotel is traced to Dan by Olivia Graync. an unhappy niece of Mrs. Bramson. who elects to shield the boy. Dan, grateful but powerless in the grip of his homicidal instincts, plots the murder of Mrs. Bramson for her money. The police take him away to be hanged, leaving Olivia relieved but desolate.
Humor is added to lighten the grue-somcncss by the cook, Mrs. Terrance (Mary C. O'Connell). Hubert Laurie, played by Donald Martin, added a . touch by his extreme English manner, his love for Olivia, and his frequent visits to the Bramson cottage. Nurse Libby (Alma Sumner) and Bclsize. the detective (Albert Zahradka), add to the English atmosphere.
The play is an excellent study of character. It completely holds attention until the intense story has run its course. Night Must Fall is one of the best performances ever staged at River Falls, and a great deal of credit is due Miss Nellc Schlosser for the fine finish which marked the performance.

The senior class play which was presented in the Auditorium on May 22 was Thornton Wilder’s successful, well-known Our Town, unique in its complete disregard of scenery. Bare walls, back drops, ropes, ladders, and straight chairs represent streets, homes, choir loft and the corner drug store. The Stage Manager tells the life stories of the Webb and Gibbs families, and the towns folk of Grover’s Corners. As the play develops, the Stage Manager calls in the characters to enact scenes. Though the story follows many to the grave it is not a tragedy; it is simply life. It tells of the romance of Emily Webb and George Gibbs, beginning with their last year in high school, the marriage of Emily and George, and after Emily’s death in childbirth her reception by the dead in the cemetery. The theme of tnc play is presented in the philosophies of the dead and enlarged by the Stage Manager. Many towns|»eople who are in the cemetery are patiently and smilingly awaiting not “judgment" but greater understanding. Into their midst is led the bride, a little timid at first, desirous of going back to life. While the dead have enjoyed life, they are content and show no yearning to return. Yet those left on earth. Dr. Gibbs. George and others, pine for the departed ones. Our Town reaches into the past of America and brings back a way of life which is entirely lost to the present generation. We come to realize that living people, human beings occupied with their petty daily tasks and small thoughts, know little of true joy or happiness. Truth is to be found only in the future. The Stage Manager sums the play up in this way: The inhabitants of Grover’s Corners are seen "in their growin’ up. in their marrying, in their livin', and in their dying."
The play was under the direction of Miss Nelle Schlosser.

THE "R" CLUB
Undhr the presidency of basket bailer Jack King, the "R" Club again was prominent on the River Falls campus during the school year. The organization consists of those men who have won major and minor awards in some varsity sport. Most noticeable of their achievements during the year was their project for providing a recreation room in North Hall. Trophies were put on display, and painting on the walls by Charles Berg provided the correct atmosphere. A huge sign for the celebration of “Dad’s Day’ was also made.

At kamhk field, September 22, the lid was lifted off the 1940 football season with Coach Lowery's men taking a beating from the Gustics of St. Peter, Minnesota, 20-3. Excellent pass defense and hard charging by the line enabled River Falls to hold a 3-0 lead throughout the first half. All three Gustavus touchdowns were scored in the third quarter by Eastling and Tomilson, the former counting twice. Trcckcr at half and Schmidt at end played outstanding ball for the Falcons.
In the second non-conference game at Stevens Point. September 28. the Red and White bowled over a favored Point eleven. 13-6. With Boettcher and Trcckcr toting the pigskin, the Falcons scored first in the opening quarter. Dubbe’s attempt for conversion was good. A retaliation touchdown by the Pointers just before the half ended made the score 7-6. A second touchdown was added in the third | e-riod by the visitors, and the increased lead was never threatened.
Showing a merciless offensive drive, the Falcons polished off the invading gridders from Ashland on November 5 to the tunc of 17-0. Every River Falls man saw action in this free-scoring affair, the last non-conference game before the Superior Homecoming tussle. Boetteller scored twice, Krueger three times, and Babbitt and Thompson contributed one touchdown apiece. Northland's lack of reserves and weight in the line turned the game into a complete rout.

I.Ki) »y iiULA-Hii'iMfli) Captain Paquette, Superior's c lassy Yellow Jackets refused to be "speared” and won the Falcon Homecoming game, 12-7. The Red and White started out strong, drawing first blood on a recovered fumble on Superior’s 5-yard line. Boettcher rang up the tally with a plunge through tackle. Dubbe's try for the extra point was good. The visitors retaliated with a touchdown late in the first period after recovering Trecker’s fumble on the 20-yard line. River Falls tried desperately to score again, but the half ended just as the Falcons were in scoring position.
The third quarter was marked by a powerful 97-yard drive by Superior, Paquette again carrying the mail lor the counts. The remainder of the game was a see-saw affair, both teams playing excellent ball.
Each team had 12 first downs, and had the first half lasted a few minutes longer the score might have been reversed. The Falcon line held up well against a 200-pound Superior line-only once were they pushed back. Boettcher and Paquette starred for their respective teams.
On October 19 the Falcons, still smarting from the homecoming defeat at the hands of Superior, journeyed to Stout and spoiled their homecoming, 9-0. River Falls began to march immediately after the opening kickoff, piling up three consecutive first downs. On fourth down Captain Dubbe booted a beautiful field goal to give the visitors a 3-0 lead. The Falcons added another tallv in the second quarter when Peterson intercepted a pass and ran it back to the 21-yard line. Stout was penalized to the l-foot line, and Boettcher carried it over. Thus the half ended. 9-0.
The Blue Devils threatened several times in the second half, losing the ball in the third i eriod on the Falcon 17-yard line and again dose to pay dirt on a fumble. Colbreese and the Rafferty brothers did most of the ball carrying for the opponents in the third and fourth periods.
F.ach team had seven first downs, the Falcons gaining the edge on five intercepted passes. The Red and White fumbled seven times, four being recovered by the enemy. Boettcher played his usual outstanding game at the fullback post. Colbreese starred for the defeated Blue Devils.
Putting on an offensive splurge in the second half, the Falcons scored their second conference victory October 25 against Eau Claire, 19-8. Eighty dads were in the stands at Rainer Field to sec this knock-’cm-down, drag-'em-out battle. The Zornadoes drew first blood with a safety early in the first period on a badly centered ball. River Falls threatened twice in the first period and again in the second period.
Immediately after the start of the second half the Falcons scored their first touchdown on a 51-yard sustained drive. Boettcher, on fourth down, boomed over for the tally. The try for the extra point was good. Two more River Falls touchdowns came in the fourth quarter, one a brilliant 50-yard dash down the sidelines by Thompson, the other resulting from an unpremeditated lateral on the 10-yard line, Kroeger to Treckcr.Thc final marker resulted from a Hurry of Eau Claire passes, Perkins finally going over for the touchdown. A line buck for the extra point was stopped cold.
"Tuffy" Thompson at half was the Falcons' man of the hour in this victory. With him leading the attack. River Falls piled up nine first downs to Eau Claire’s six.
The Falcons were scalped in no uncertain terms on November 2 in the final conference game at La Crosse. 33-0. River Falls invaded the Indians’ territory with a chance for a tie for the conference title. Rut, though Coach Lowery sent in everybody but the water boy in trying to stem the onslaught, the Indians kept rolling up first downs, 16 in all. It was La Crosse's fifth straight victory and virtually clinched their claim to the conference title.
Poor pass defense and incessant charging by the Indians were the main causes of the slaughter. Smith, De-Voll, Wilhelm, and Lass were the backs who riddled the defense in handing the Falcons their wont defeat of the year. Time and again Schulenberg, Born and Dobbentein showed a lot of fight in this most hopeless battle.

With eight lettermkn returning, all indications pointed toward a successful season for Coach Lowery’s cagcrs. Those veterans reporting for practice were Jack King, Ken Rasmussen, Fred Krocger, Stanley Palm, Stanley Peloquin, Harold Sclnnidt. Newell Olson, and Don Schwartz. Newcomers Harisson Henry, Charles Chapman, and George Noyes rounded out this year’s squad.
In the first game of the season the Falcons travelled to Northficld. Minnesota, to tangle with the St. Olaf Oles. The game was a disappointing one, ending with our five on the short end of a 80 19 score. Both teams played ragged ball, neither using the right strategy at the right time. Free substituting by Coach Lowery and the use of different combinations could not pull the game out of the fire.
River Falls bounced back after the Norsk defeat with a 54 48 win over Macal-cster College of St. Paul. Led by Kroeger, King, and Peloquin. the Red and White offensive finally started clicking, and they were able to pile up a comfortable 81-18 lead at half time. The Macs came back strong in the second half and lessened the lead considcrablv. Especially encouraging was the fine playing by Peloquin. filling Swede Nelson’s shoes at the guard position.
Playing in the new Baker Fieldhouse in Milwaukee, the Lowcrymen dropped a 54-81 contest to a powerful Milwaukee Teachers quintet. The Gulls used a fast break to great effect, and as a result took a lead which was never threatened by the visitors. Buchlcr. star forward for the Green and White, capped all scoring honors with 21 points. King, captain for River Falls, led the Falcon scoring with three buckets and five gift tosses.
The Falcons shook off the effects of the Friday night defeat in the Brewer City by pouncing on Concordia College of Milwaukee for a 47-22 victory. Kroeger played outstanding ball for the invaders, swishing the old bucket for 17 points. All around pep was exhibited by the smaller quintet, but they were unable to cope with the fine ball handling of the Falcons. River Falls held a 21-13 lead at the half.
In the last game before the holidays the Falcons squared things with the Norskmen of St. Olaf with a 37-35 triumph. It was guard ;’Speck" Palm who sank the winning bucket with seconds to go. The contest was played deliberately with little shooting, each squad trying to work in close for set shots. Peloquin took scoring honors of the evening with twelve points to his credit. The Oles led at the intermission. 17-15.
Fi.aying again on the home court, the Red and White lost a thrilling game to a determined St. Thomas five, 50-48. Had the Falcons got out of low gear earlier in the game, the complexion of the game might have been different. Only by superb playing were the Falcons able to lessen a 2.8-17 half time advantage. Kroc-ger hit the hoop from all angles, chalking up 27 points. His drive and deadly accuracy enabled the Falcons to stave oil a worse defeat.
River Falls chalked up conference victory number one in a hair-raising tussle with the La Crosse Indians, 62-60. The Lowerymen took an early advantage which was never relinquished. In the last few minutes the Maroons sank bucket after bucket to whittle away an eleven point lead to two lone digits. With the Red and White stalling for time, the welcome crack of the gun ended the game. Schmidt with 16 points and Wulf with 19, led their respective teams in scoring.
Again Falcon fans counted precious seconds as the Lowerymen came out on top with a victory over Stout, 46 44. Due to poor officiating, the game degenerated into a rough and tumble affair. Both teams fought furiously, and the lead changed hands time after time in the second half. It was froth forward Henry's three free tosses and two quick swishers by Krocgcr which finally pulled the game out of .the fire. “Frit ." again carried off scoring honors with six baskets and four free throws, good for 16 counters.
With two conference victories under their belts, the Falcons journeyed to Superior to meet the undefeated Yellowjackcts. Engdahl, Welch, Rehnstrand. and Co. showed tremendous offensive power in overcoming the visitors by a 58-80 score. With Engdahl leading a vicious second half attack with 17 points. River Falls was left in the dus.t. Kroegcr led the Falcon scoring with 11 points. The lopsided victors' definitely marked Superior as the leading contender for the conference title.
The Red and White dropped their second consecutive game in a non-conference tilt in St. Paul to the St. Thomas quint. 39-85. The rangy Falcons led throughout the first three quarters, but a final burst of speed overcame the tiring invaders. Spotty passing by the local peds led to their downfall.rELOQVIK
The zornmen of eau claire eked oui a close 43-41 victory over the visiting Falcons, the Red and White's second conference defeat. Only after the start of the second half did the Falcons wake up to the fact that they were out to win a ball game. But, after a scoring splurge which tied the score at 41 all with twenty seconds to go. Bye sneaked in uie winning bucket. Krenz led the Bluegolds offensive attack with 16 points. Kroeger and Schmidt paced the loser with 11 and 10 points respectively.
Our bucketeers took it on the chin again at Macalestcr. coming upon the short end of a 50-43 score. The Falcon defeat was due largely to the loss of Schmidt. Kroeger, and Palm via the foul route. The Lowery coached reserves could not cope with the final offensive drive put on by the Blue and Orange. Kroeger capped scoring honors with 17 markers.
Smarting from the close defeat at River Falls, the downstate La Crosse Indians really “turned on the heat" to set the Falcons down, 70-38. After a give and take first quarter, the Indians started rolling and swamped the visitors. In the second half the Indians scored 36 points to the Falcons' 18. Lupie and Kroeger tied for scoring honors with 18 points each.
The Falcons finally broke a losing streak in topping Eau Claire to square matters this season with a 60-55 score. Krenz again starred with 23 points, tossing in buckets from all angles to keep the invaders in the running. King and Olson scored 19 and 18 points respectively.
A spirited Blue Devil team knocked off the Falcons 54-44, to revenge an earlier defeat on the Red and White’s stamping grounds. Both teams set a blistering pace, especially in the second half. The loss of Kroeger, Olson, Rasmussen, and Schwartz via the foul route in the third quarter largely caused the Falcon downfall. Forward "Fritz” Kroeger set the pace for both quints with 17 points.
Scoring twenty-five counters, “Moose" Rchnstrand put on a one man show as the Superior Yellowjackets wiped out the Falcons, 76-58. The visitors had lost their only game of the season to La Crosse the night before, and they really took out their ire on the Lowerymen. As a fast breaking, smooth-working team. Ted Whereatt's squad is hard to equal. This game was the last of the season, and clinched Superior's claim to the conference title.BACK ROW—BOETTCHER, SCHULENBERC. JACOBSON. NELSON. HERMANSON. N.

Although four of the regulars oil (he 1940 baseball team were lost through graduation. Coach Clifford Juedes molded a very fine team before the beginning of the 1941 season. Especially promising among the rookie newcomers were catchers Mraz and Sellulcnberg, third baseman Drchmel. and outfielders Poppy and Bratberg.
La Crosse, conference winners last year, again looked to be the strongest as the season began. However, this spring all the conference teams seemed stronger on the whole, and the prospects were for some very close battles on the diamond.
The Falcons opened the season on April 25 with a 4-2 victory over Stout. Peloquin was in rare form for the winners, allowing two hits and striking out 15 batters. Freshman Bob Mraz drove in three of the Falcon runs with two of the six hits. Again sterling pitching took the spotlight as "Boone" Hermanson of the Red and White handed Concordia college of St. Paul a 2-0 whitewashing. "Boone" allowed only two hits, while his mates nicked Concordia's Ellinger for seven. Mraz and first baseman Kelly each had two base hits.
In a lopsided game the Falcons tripped the Zorn-coached base bailers of Eau Claire by a 9-1 score. Peloquin pitched splendid ball as the Falcons won their second conference victors'.
The fourth game of the season was played at the Minnesota prison at Stillwater. The Falcons proved their strength by slugging their way to a 12-3 victory.KING ANDERSON
Tennis and coi.f drew much aueniion as spring athletic activities on the River Falls campus this year. Prucha, Schmidt. Thompson, and Ed Jacobson were the veterans returning to round out the golf team. King. YVcsscls, Willink, Palm, and Anderson were the mainstays of the Falcon netters.
Against Stout the linksmen got oil to a fine start as they won the match. 8i £ to Si J. Prucha shot low game for the winners with an 80. The tennis squad was not so fortunate, as they were nosed out by a strong Stout aggregation. 1-3.
Concordia was the first victim of the River Falls tennis team, as they were snowed under by the Falcons, 5-1. The match was played on the Red and White’s home court.
On May 12 Charlie llare, former Davis Cup player, put on an exhibition on the Falcon courts. Hare once defeated Fred Perry, tennis all-time great. Many of the surrounding high schools attended the exhibition to see how tennis is supposed to be played.
Other tennis and golf matches were held with the colleges in the Northern Conference. The contests were on the same afternoon that the baseball team played its games against those various schools.

Again the intramural procram, under ihc able guidance of Clifford Juedcs, was very successful during ihc school year of 1940-41. Over two hundred men look pan in ihc various activities, carrying out the theme of the program—Participation for All —A Sport for Everyone. The games were spread over a broad field in order to touch the interests of most of the men students at River Falls.
As in previous years, the program was operated on a point basis. Points were given to every participant in that sport, plus bonus points for being on a winning team or a winner in an individual event. Medals were given to the three students who chalked up the greatest number of points. Awards were also given on Recognition Day to those four men highest in their respective classes.
A grand send-off was given to the program with the sport that attracted eighty-eight men—touch football. Al Dempsey's "Maulers” came out on top of the heap with six wins and no defeats. Other members of the squad were Collier, Ou, Dcetz, Brookes. Ferries, “Norm" and Warren Larson, Lloyd Johnson. Warren Nelson, and Bill Madden.
Cribbage was next in line on the fall program. "Chuck" Rohr showed his expert ability with the pasteboards by copping first place honors. Collier was runner-up.
Table tennis was again a popular sport as fifty men took part in the class events, twenty-two in the doubles, and thirty-one in the singles tourney. Class winners were Douglas Clarke, Paulson, Arts, and Don Martin. In the doubles Clarke and Lundmark walked 'Off the champions, and those same two frosh battled for the all-school singles championship, Clarke finally emerging the victor.
The basketball league drew ninety-nine men out on the hard court. The Dubbe-Dicrmcicr outfit won the round robin tournament, and Brooke’s bucketccrs came through to take the playoff. The "Skunkhollowcrs,” captained by Dubbc and Dicrmcicr, captured all honors in that event.
A revived event, the free throw contest, was won by "Orv” Thompson, who sank thirty-six tosses out of fifty. Forty-nine men participated in this novel sport.
During the winter months the swim decathlon was held. Roger Bodin and Allen Hanna were the victors. A regular swimming squad, under Captain Bodin, has been organized by Mr. Juedes for the coming year.
Checkers, volleyball, and bowling started out the spring intramural program with a bang. Drehmel proved to be the brainiest of the mental giants at the checkerboard and defeated F. Reynolds in the championship series. W. Larson's "Thoresons" copped first honors in volleyball, and Fond du Lac’s Joe On and his boys were the tops among the "maple-busters.” Bowling is a sport which is becoming increasingly popular among both men and women students at RFSTC.
On April 15 the intramural tennis matches were begun. This activity attracted nineteen players on the courts.
At the time of this writing, only seventy men, forming five teams, have signed to play softball. This is a much smaller number than last year, when nine teams took part in the backdoor tournament. However, the teams this spring arc more evenly matched, and the prospects are for some lively games. Play began on April 28.
Topping off the year’s intramural program were the track decathlon and the horseshoe matches. In the track activities each man was required to take part in eadt of the ten events: the fifty, one-hundred, two-hundred-and-twentv-yard dashes, shotput, broad jump, high jump, discus, hop-step-and-jump, push-ups, and the baseball throw for distance and accuracy.
The program was scheduled for completion on May 16.nOHIIF.RSTF.IN
The falcon leather-i ushkrs came through again this school year with flying colors. Boxing centered around individual efforts, no definite team being organized. Gordon Barto, light-heavyweight, Orville Peterson, welterweight, and I.e-land Dobbcrstein, heavyweight, were especially active.
At the Red Wing annual Golden Gloves Tournament in February, Barto and Dobbcrstein cracked through to win the finals in their respective weight divisions. A tired Peterson was outpointed in a close bout, despite the fact that he won the first two rounds.
All three pugilistic footballers, by virtue of their showing at Red Wing, next climbed into the ring at the Minneapolis tournament. Hard luck again trailed Peterson as he lost the opening battle to "Patsy" Fillipo. Though lie downed his opponent in the second round, Fillipo bounced back to win the judge's nod. Barto and Dobbcrstein waded through to the semi-finals in the light-heavyweight and heavyweight divisions. Clyde Rasley, however, threw too much leather for Barto, winning the decision. Dobberstein also lost by a technical knockout to the 245-pound giant of Brainerd, Minnesota, "Thor" Thorstcnson.
The boxing squad, coached by Chief of Police Dan Linehan, loses two men through graduation, Peterson and Maki. Although welterweight Maki did not take part in the Golden Gloves events this year, he has piled up a fine record during the past three years.In no small degree did these people contribute to the pleasure and success of River Falls’ athletics, by looking after the condition of the team on the one hand and the pep of the students on the other. Nine rahs for them!

This organization capably directs the iniranuiral activities of the college women. Membership is open to all those who wish to participate in any of the various activities. Each Tuesday and Thursday periods are held at four o'clock which are devoted to activities alone. At the beginning of these periods, practice sessions arc held which later on develop into rousing tournaments.
At the start of the school year a novel party was organized to interest the freshmen and others unacquainted with the W. A. A. for prospective membership. This get-together was in tlic form of a hay-ride. After reaching their destination, a bend in the Kinnickinnic River, the crowd of fifty girls gathered around fires for a watermelon and popcorn feast.
With this enthusiastic start, the association began a successful year's program. Equipment for basketball and kittcnball was bought. Each month a social meeting was held, giving the members a chance for folk dancing, a Hallowe’en party, skating, and picnics. Also a business meeting was held once a month.
In February the traditional play day with Eau Claire was held. River Falls reversed the usual procedure of the last three years by coming out the winner for the day. Basketball, table tennis, swimming, and relays were the competitive games played. An army-navy theme was carried out.
In May the organization planned a camping trip on the St. Croix River, which was held jointly with the Eau Claire organization. Tennis and archer)' tournaments was also a part of the spring program. The culmination of the activities of the year was the spring banquet, held in honor of the graduating seniors and the girls winning a letter through the intramural competitive point system.Golu.

With the bright, snappy days of September and October comes the first call to the sturdier of the fair Amazons for field hockey. Primarily a game calling for endurance and roughness, hockey does not have a large following. However, to the enthusiasts who do play, black and blue marks and bumped shins are of little consequence.
Two teams were formed, captained by two veterans, Marie Tromm and Alma Goltz. No tournament was held, but these bi-weekly games were of the rough and tumble variety. Leona Rhodey was sports head for the six-week season.
Thirty-one ;iki.s, responding to the urge for action, came out for hit-pin baseball. Plenty of action and fast passing characterize the game played on an indoor diamond. The game is played somewhat like baseball with the exception that the pitcher rolls a soccer ball on the floor, and the baiter kicks the ball instead of using a bat. No regular teams were formed, but the competitive spirit ran high. Manager Marie Tromm capably led the sport through a successful season.
Basketball, the best-liked sport of the River Falls women, seemed to have fallen into a slump. Twenty-four girls turned out, and after learning the fundamentals in practice sessions, two teams were selected. Dorothy Parrish and Leona Rhodey were named captains. Departing from the procedure of past years, no tournament was held, but interest in the game was by no means dimmed. During the latter part of the season, exchange games were held with the Girls’ Club of the River Falls High School. Vonnie Fellrath piloted the basketball season.INDIVIDUAL SPORTS
This year has seen a tremendous increase in the interest in individual sports. Perhaps this is due to the fact that a game may be played any time the participants wish instead of wailing for play at a definite period.
One of America’s favorite pastimes, bowling, became the winter season's greatest hit. Every Wednesday at four o'clock the girls.gathered to learn and practice the game. When they became organized, four teams were selected. These teams included: Mary Lowe, captain, Kay Guanella, Helen Bollum, Bertha Wormet, Rochelle Devine, and I.eona Rhodey: Dorothy Parrish, captain, Adelaide Scheide, Esther Solhcim, Bernice Deiss, Audrey Anderson; Peg Monteith, captain, Margaret Parrish, Mary John Shuel, Vonnie Fellrath, Marlys Lowe; Joyce Schwalen, captain, Kathleen Mulheron, Helen Riedel, Marie Tromm, Irene Hophan. The big five at the end of the season included: Mary Lowe, Dorothy Parrish, Bernice Deiss. Peg Monteith, and Leona Rhodey. Although no 200 s or 300's were rolled, many of the girls became more adept as the season advanced. With such a successful start, bowling will undoubtedly become one of the outstanding individual sports.
The ping-pong table in the South Hall gym rarely has a moment’s rest. Table Tennis enthusiasts play steadily from fall to spring at any time when they have a free period or a ten-min-minutc rest. A ladder tournament was organized with twenty girls playing. Alma Sumner came out the winner, with Alma Colluin running a close second, and Margaret Stronks third.
Every spring in (he physical education classes lennis is offered. Because of this, many arc eager to perfect their game and the tennis courts arc always crowded. With practice even the beginners become skilled and a tournament is the natural result. Last spring a novel doubles tournament was held, with each experienced player choosing an inexperienced player for her partner. The veterans who play for the uncontested title this spring arc Neca Bleisncr, Alma Goltz, and Alma Collum.
Archery is fast becoming a popular form of recreation among the girls. Although the season is short—it is confined to the last five weeks of school-much
enjoyment and pleasure arc received by its followers. Likewise, badminton is a favorite recreational sport during the indoor season. This year a mixed doubles tournament was held, with Ted Gleiter and Alma Collum receiving the title. On Wednesday the swimming pool is open to all girls who wish to participate. Several splash par-lies were held throughout the year.

The student senate, a student governing body consisting of eleven members, seven of whom are elected by the student body at an assembly meeting during the second week in May of the previous year, and four of whom arc acting as class presidents, is organized to assume the responsibilities and duties pertaining to student activities and matters primarily concerning the student body. A more democratic student attitude is thereby stimulated.
Working in cooperation with the Student Senate is the Student Faculty Relations Committee consisting of six Student Senate members and five faculty members. This committee aids in maintaining satisfactory relations between the students and the faculty.
During its five years of existence the Student Senate has assumed many and varied responsibilities. Some of these arc: the election of the editors of The Student Voice and the Meletean, the publication of the freshman handbook, the purchasing of music for the N. Y. A. orchestra and the phonograph, and magazines for the men’s union, women’s social room, and health cottage, the sponsoring of social activities, the enforcement of the payment of class dues, the nomination of candidates for Homecoming Day chairman. This year the Student Senate sponsored a Mother’s Day which was organized by the YWCA. It has also begun equipping a studio to be used by the Meletean staff.
Among the important sub-committees of the Senate are: the social committee, which has charge of all social functions financed by the Senate, the organization committee which organizes a calendar of meeting dates for the organizations of the campus to minimize conflicts, the auditing committee whose duty it is to audit the books of the organizations of the campus, a concessions committee which grants concessions to the various organizations and individuals to prevent duplication, and an assembly committee which assists in selecting the assembly programs for the year.
This year a charter was granted to a new campus organization. The Latin Club.

The social committee, a sub committee of the Student Senate, consisting of eight members, two from each class, selected by the Senate to work with a Senate representative, made arrangements for and took charge of all social functions financed by the Senate throughout the year.
Outstanding social functions began with the Homecoming dance Saturday, October 12, featuring the music of the popular Joe Billo. Donald Martin was general chairman of all Homecoming activities. Virginia Griffith, Amanda Florness, June Tweed, Geneva Bleisner, and Verle Straud were selected by the Senate as candidates for Homecoming queen. June Tweed was selected queen, with the remaining candidates as attendants.
The Student Voice was granted a date for a party on October 23. Lois Webb acted as chairman in charge. Under the direction of Orland Born a Hayloft Jamboree was arranged by the F. F. A. on November 16. The first formal event of the year, using the Christmas theme, was sponsored by the College Masquers on December 14 with Jack Howard's orchestra.
A pre-Christmas party, featuring Paul Leland and His Northern Gentlemen, was held on Thursday evening before vacation. After the Christmas holidays, permission was given by the committee to the following groups for parties: the YWCA for the puff-pant prom, the YMCA for the bean soup party, and the freshman and sophomore classes for class parties.
The social register for the spring season indicated four outstanding social events. First, the all-school masquerade; second, the Student Voice’s 25th anniversary party arranged by the social committee; third, the final formal of the year, the spring prom, given by the Junior Class. Nat Towles’ music was presented in a southern plantation setting. As a climax to the spring activities and the social program of the year, a spring frolic, proposed by the Student Senate, was held on the college campus. This consisted of an afternoon of intracollegiate competition in outdoor sports, and a campus barbecue followed by a tennis court dance.
Opening the women’s social room to both men and women at frequent intervals, and the cafeteria service during dances in South Hall, were innovations that proved successful.

36THE HONOR SOCIETY
Those students who have attained two and one-half honor points for each credit hour for at least one term are eligible for membership in the Honor Society. A small silver "R” is the emblem of membership. Those who have received two and one-fourth honor points for each credit hour and have no grade below a "C” are awarded a gold “R" upon graduation. Only about seventy-five students have achieved membership in this organization.
This society functions chiefly as a social organization, meeting once each month. There are no dues, and the programs are prepared by various committees appointed for the purpose. Paul Prucha and Virginia Griffith arranged two of the parties. One of the most interesting programs was one in which Miss Arbuthnot read the Greek play, “Iphigenia in Aulis." The final event of the year was the picnic at Glen Park, at which time the officers were elected for next year. The first meetings after the beginning of each term, which are informal social gatherings, are mainly to welcome the new members. Whenever necessary the committees are assisted by Mrs. Eide, the adviser.
For Homecoming, Mildred Hillstad, Margaret Bendix, Shirley Walker, Oliver Glanzman, Charles Rohr, Arthur Stickt, and Arikl Nielsen constructed the float. This float, “The Fish,” won first place in the Homecoming parade among the organization floats.

fAMES I . JACOBSONTHE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
Through its numerous activities, the Student Young Men’s Christian Association has in this, the twenty-seventh year of continuous service on the River Falls campus, fulfilled its purpose to offer to the men in college an opportunity to unite in the development of Christian personality through wholesome social and religious participation, to cooperate with other colleges in a worldwide fellowship, and to influence thinking toward a Christian solution of campus, community, and world problems.
A large part of the success of the YMCA program is due to the weekly cabinet meetings and to special cabinet training. Several cabinet members attended the Lake Independence meeting in April and the Lake Geneva Conference in June, where the River Falls program exhibit was on display. Y retreats for the local cabinet were held the first week end in May near Amery, and during the week before school started last fall at the home of the adviser, Mr. Jacobson. Weekly meetings of the cabinet were held after the Monday night meetings. The senior and junior cabinets met on alternate Sunday mornings at the home of the adviser for breakfast, followed by a discussion period of vital student problems. When Mr. Jacobson was a patient at the University of Minnesota Hospital in the fall, meetings were held at the homes of Professor Janies I. Malott and Dr. R. A. Kargcs.
The first activities of the YMCA for the year 1940-1941 were concerned with freshman orientation. It distributed a pamphlet of information for the freshman men concerning their college interests. In cooperation with the YWCA it sponsored the freshman mixer and the freshman breakfast. The latter was held the second Sunday in the college cafeteria. After the breakfast the freshmen were escorted to the churches of their denomination.
The Y Associations were honored last fall by the visit of Mr. Claud Nelson to the campus. Mr. Nelson is director of the World Student Service Fund which is used to aid needy students in China and Europe. Another guest of the chapter was Mr. Bob Johnson, regional YMCA sec-re tar)'.
The regular Monday night meetings were continued this year as a main feature of the program. Besides having speakers appear at these meetings, panel and group discussions and debates were also held. Several times during the year the YMCA quartette participated in the programs.
The February series of group discussions, sponsored jointly by the YM and YW, supplemented the regular meetings with opportunities for participation in leisure time activities, or discussions of world affairs, student problems, book reviews, and parliamentary procedure. The series was closed with a panel discussion of "Does the Campus Give a Fair Chance to All?”
The activities of other departments included the deputation department, which presented programs at ten different meetings during the year, mainly for PTA’s and for church services. The Hi-Y department met with members of the training school each Thursday afternoon and carried on a program of varied discussions.
The YMCA built the traditional float for the Homecoming queen. An outstanding social event, the twenty-fourth annual stag party, was held in February. The social department also sponsored an open-house meeting at the beginning of the second term. The "Y Alumnus” was sent to 180 former cabinet members three different times during the year. The religious department presented the Christmas and Easter vesper services which were held in the college auditorium and Congregational Church, respectively. The annual installation banquet, at which members of next year's cabinet pledged their support to the organization, was held in April.

IRMA IIATHORNTHE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
The Young Women's Christian Association aims to provide a feeling of good fellowship among the women on the campus and to help them build a character and personality well adjusted for living. The local group is a member of the Young Women’s Christian Association of the United States and is a participant in the World Student Christian Association.
The governing body of the YWCA is a cabinet composed of four officers and nine chairmen who act as committee heads to direct the various activities of the year. An advisory board of three members is chosen by the organization on the three-year plan, whereby one new member is appointed each year and an old member completes her three-year service period. The present advisers are Miss Alma Rausch, Mrs. John Knapp, and Miss Mabel Bridges. Miss Irma Hathorn is the faculty adviser. Any woman on the campus may become a member of the group, providing she states her intentions of upholding the purposes of the organization.
On alternate Monday nights the organization meets for a recreational or educational program. Features of the year were the addresses by Mr. Justin Williams and Miss Alma Rausch, the February discussion meetings held jointly with the YMCA, and the worship services.
The organization began its campus service by sponsoring in cooperation with the YMCA and the Student Senate the freshman mixer the first evening of the school year. As another part of the orientation program, the freshmen were entertained at a breakfast. Old members acted as big sisters to the freshman girls on the campus by helping them find their classrooms, by introducing them to new friends, and by attempting to create a home-like atmosphere for them the first weeks of school. The campus sisters entertained the little sisters at a tea to which the faculty women were invited.
Several new projects were initiated during the year, and many old ones were continued. Many girls volunteered their services in Girl Scout work by acting as hike leaders, by giving handicraft demonstrations, and by contributing to various other activities. A book review group was formed under the direction of Louise Kelly and Marjorie Jerdec. Joyce Schwalen directed a sewing club and later was in charge of knitting for the Red Cross. The YWCA orchestra, directed by Alma Sumner, made its debut at the election meeting. In connection with the Mother’s Day program, girls from the organization made and sold corsages.
Recognition beyond the local campus continued to be gained. For the first time, the fall area conference was planned to be held at River Falls with the local girls as hostesses. The conference was cancelled because of bad weather. Several members attended the celebration commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the YWCA on the University of Minnesota campus. The local organization was asked to plan the vesper service at the annual spring conference held at Ihduhopi, Lake Independence.
Jeanne Treadwell, Lorrcc Hclgcson, Marjorie Thompson, Carol Whitaker, and Mildred Fleming attended the spring conference. Verna Annett attended the summer conference at Lake Geneva. A former cabinet adviser, Mrs. Justin Williams, was appointed to the position of area counselor for the Wisconsin and Minnesota region.
The Puff-Pant Prom was the highlight of the year in social events. Other important features of the social program were the teas and parties planned by Berdeena Miller.
Much of the success that was realized can be attributed to the weekly meeting of the cabinet and to the spring retreat, where the plans for the year were carefully outlined by the new cabinet members under the supervision of the advisers and the old cabinet.

142FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
The Collegiate Future Farmer Chapter is an organization for men who are majoring in agricultural education. It is the largest organization in the college. Its aims arc to prepare prospective teachers of vocational agriculture for duties of advisers to the high school chapters in their work.
This year the organization, with its 128 paid-up members, had the most successful year in its five-year history. The events that the chapter promoted were more successful than they ever were in the past.
The Collegiate Chapter began its program of work for 1940-1941 by sponsoring a high school judging contest, with Robert I-lccbink acting as general chairman of the event. Grantsburg won the contest over thirty-two other schools that were represented at the contest. The rural school fair, under the direction of Hiram Thompson and Harold Mattison, held for the purpose of giving the near-by rural schools an opportunity to compete for school and individual awards in booth and crop exhibits, had the largest number of crop exhibits in the history of the fair.
The Collegiate Chapter took an active part in the Homecoming celebration by having three of its senior F. F. A. members act as chairmen for the occasion. They were: Donald Martin, general chairman, Robert Thorcson, chairman of the mass meeting, and Merton Timmerman, chairman of the Homecoming parade. The F. F. A. also received the first prize for the stunt it put on at the mass meeting. Myron Grosskopp acted as the chairman for the Homecoming stunt. The Homecoming float, originated by Erwin Ziclke, also received high honors in the parade.
A Hayloft Jamboree was the social event sponsored by the chapter. Orland Born acted as chairman; Erwin Zielke and Archie Johnson deserve much credit for their original decoration of the college gym as the interim of a barn.
The F. F. A. Officers' Day, under the direction of Eugene Wycoff, was held in December. The purpose of this conference is to give the high school chapters an opportunity to train their officers for their duties in their F. F. A. work. Another connection the Collegiate Chapter had with the high schools was the trips the collegiate degree teams made to surrounding high schools. The Collegiate Chapter sent these degree teams out to various high school chapters to elevate the members of those chapters to the degree of Greenhand or Future Farmer. The teams were under the leadership of Orland Born, James Ness, Edwin Bergstrom, and Keith Wurtz. This year the chapter sent out these teams more frequently than ever in the past years of the chapter's existence.
One of the biggest events that the organization promoted this year was the River Falls Inter-County Poultry, Corn, and Grain Show. Frank Swanson, with the aid of Ernest Brickner, directed the exhibits. The chapter worked in connection with the River Falls Booster Club.
Other items on the program of work of the chapter were: the annual mid-winter F. F. A. banquet, with Bernard Kjelstad in charge of arrangements; F. F. A. speaking contest, under the direction of Keith Wurtz; F. F. A. plays and panel discussions, under the leadership of Robert Rudcsill, and parliamentary procedure presentations, by groups led by Merton Timmerman and Richard Delorit.
The school year was brought to a close by the annual F. F. A. picnic, with Ensor Monette in charge of arrangements.

The purpose of the Science Club is to keep in touch with modern developments in science, to promote the scientific altitude, and in all ways possible to stimulate an interest in scientific subjects. It attempts to bring to its members those phases of the scientific field to which formal classes, due to limited time, cannot give a great deal of attention. Thus, it supplements the regular class work of several departments by devoting its time and effort to those developments which open new avenues for thought and action in the field of science. The club's membership is made up chiefly of students who have majors and minors in science. This year meetings have been held every two weeks on Thursday nights in the chemistry lecture room. Attendance is not compulsory, neither is it restricted to members only; anyone interested is invited to attend the meetings.
This year, as in previous years, the programs consisted mainly of educational films obtained from the United States Bureau of Mines at Pittsburgh. The films shown were: The Story of Asbestos, Carbon Monoxide, The Unseen Danger, Follow the White Traffic Maker, Through Oil Fields of Europe and Africa, Coppc) Mining in Arizona, The Story of Gasoline, Wildwood: a 100c o Mechanized Aline, From Mountains to Cement Sacks, Steel liars and Structural Shapes, Construction That Endures, and Glimpses of Texas.
In addition to presenting these worth-while educational films, the Science Club has brought to the campus a number of speakers and demonstrators. A representative of the Majestic Welder Manufacturing Company of Minneapolis gave a demonstration of electric welding. Mr. Ncwhousc, representing the Northern States Power Company of Eau Claire, gave an interesting lecture-demonstration on lights and color. The feature attraction of this meeting was a demonstration of black light. Mr. Lawrence Hope, the district conservation warden, spoke on wild life and fish game laws. Mr. M. B. Monsen of the Eau Claire division of the Northern States Power Company gave a lecture-demonstration on safety with electricity.
The value of the Science Club lies in the appreciation it gives of the ever-increasing role of science in shaping the lives of human society. For this reason it is hoped that its popularity will continue to grow in the future as it has in the past.

146THE MATHEMATICS CLUB
The mathematics club is an active organization which gives to students interested in mathematics an opportunity to discuss topics and problems to broaden their knowledge of mathematics. The programs were conducted by the members of the club every two weeks.
In addition to the regular meetings, the club attempted to keep the bulletin board in the mathematics room provided with mathematical puzzles, quotations, problems, and biographies of famous mathematicians.
Mildred Birkmose, president, had charge of the regular meetings, except during the winter term in her absence as a practice teacher in Hudson, when Thomas Kliszcz, secretary-treasurer, presided.

The rural life club, an organization of students in the rural department, attempts to increase the knowledge and understanding of problems which confront all rural teachers. Special emphasis is placed on problems which beginning teachers are apt to meet in actual teaching. In addition, the organization provides a means of bringing the rural students together, so they may become better acquainted and at the same time provides programs that give practice in management and organization. The programs feature educational topics of interest and value to the rural teacher. Membership is voluntary; however, the services and values of the organization gain membership from practically all of the students in the department. This year the rural department was greatly strengthened through the addition of a new personnel member, Mr. C. L. Eg-gert. Director of the Department.
The success of the club depends greatly upon the program chairman. The duties of the program chairman are divided on the half-year basis. Audrey Anderson held the responsibility the first half of the year; Elvera Warner directed the program activities during the latter half of the year.
Meetings were held regularly on the first and third Thursdays of each month. During the first half of the year many discussions were held concerning the new socialized methods of teaching and training which are being introduced and adopted by many rural schools. These discussions were mainly led by Miss Mabel Jorstad, adviser of the Rural Life Club, Mr. C. L. Eggert, and Mr. J. O. Karpen, Superintendent of Schools in Dakota County, Minnesota, who presented an address on tne “new era” in rural methods of leaching. Special features of the first half of the year were an interesting talk concerning the desirable qualities which successful rural teachers must possess by Mr. Ihlenfeldt of the State Board of Education and the Rural Education Conference held on the campus in November.
One of the important phases of the rural work is the six weeks practice teaching period in the rural schools of Pierce and St. Croix Counties for sophomore students of the department. During this time the cadet teachers do all the teaching and take over all the responsibilities which are expected of a rural teacher. Their work is closely supervised by the teacher in each school and the rural faculty staff of the college. Many of these students live in the country during this period and share in community life. Schools in which students practiced this year were: the Her-um School. Miss Agnes Iverson, teacher; the South Rush River School. Miss Esther Obcrg, teacher; the Donegal School, Mrs. Stanley Birkel. teacher; the Boardman School, Miss Blanche Sias, teacher; the Valley View School, Miss Nora Owens, teacher.
On May second and third the club sent a delegation of twenty-five members to the Country Life Convention at Madison. Several of the members participated in the panel discussion held at this convention. The club concluded a successful year with the annual banquet for returning alumni and present members, and a breakfast hike.

The palette club is an organization of students interested in furthering their knowledge and appreciation of art, and those who arc encouraged to develop techniques, crafts, and special interests through the club. Its membership is not limited to persons taking art courses.
Meetings were held in the art room in South Hall at seven o’clock on the first and third Wednesdays of every month. The president, elected the preceding year, presided over these meetings, which consisted of a discussion of the business of the club followed by talks, demonstrations, or a period of work on individual projects.
These individual projects proved to be interesting and varied and included crafts such as the making of belts, scrapbooks, photograph albums, Christmas cards, and other Christmas gifts.
Besides the individual work carried on throughout the year, the club sponsored an exhibit of a group of original water-color paintings done by the noted American water-color artist, Frederick Whitaker. This proved to be one of the year’s highlights, since countless students, faculty, towns| cople, and training school children viewed the exhibit during the five-day presentation.
Another major accomplishment of the club was the painting of the athletic mural by one of the more talented members. Charles Berg, on the walls of the men's recreation room in North Hall. The Palette Club carried this type of work further by finishing a mural started by the advanced art class.
In January the Palette Club held a joint meeting with the Mathematics Club. Leonardo da Vinci’s life and his work in dynamic symmetry were discussed. One other meeting of special interest was that devoted to the art of puppetry. First a talk was given explaining the making and working of puppets. Members of the club were then shown the effectiveness of the finished product by being entertained with a short marionette act.
The last important event of the year was the annual breakfast picnic and supper at Miss Greene’s apartment.

For sigma chi sigma, 19-11 marks ihe second year of its campus life. Its threefold purpose, suggested by the three Greek letters in its name, is: to promote the social life of die individual member, to promote culture, and to render a definite service to the college. Only sophomore, junior, or senior girls who arc enrolled in a four-year course, who have been enrolled in school one year previous to their entry into the organization, who maintain a scholastic average of 1.5, and who possess desirable personality and ethical traits, interests and a capacity for leadership, are considered eligible for the organization. Of the forty candidates for membership this year, only nine new members were actually admitted. All members are eligible to receive the official green and gold shield-shaped pin adopted by the society this year.
An advisory board of three persons, at least one of whom must be a faculty member, is chosen by the organization to serve on a three-year plan. The senior member will be replaced each year by an adviser elected by the group. Mrs. Walker D. Wyman, who was chosen to serve the position left vacant by the resignation of Mrs. J. H. Owens, Miss Helen Loeb, and Miss Catherine Lieneman are the members of the advisory board.
Various activities were designed for the year to promote the social life and cultural interests of each member. These included teas, buffet suppers, and parties. A rushing tea was held in the social room October 24 for the candidates for membership. Following a four-week pledge period and an impressive candlelight initiation service at the home of.Mrs. Wyman, a buffet supper was served in honor of the new members. Open-house was held for the alumnae members at Miss Helen Loeb’s apartment after the Homecoming game. On January 10 the members attended the performance of Kirsten Flagstad, soprano, appearing with the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra conducted by Edwin McArthur. A campus tea in honor of the faculty women and a formal commencement banquet given by the members for the graduating seniors complete the calendar for the year.
A scholarship is awarded on Honors Day by Sigma Chi Sigma to a freshman girl who displays outstanding capacity for leadership, scholastic ability, and personality traits.

The honor of being the newest campus organization goes to the Latin Club. It has chosen for its name Senatus Populusquc Romanus. usually shortened to S.P.Q.R.. meaning the Senate and the Roman People.
The club is designed to meet a two-fold desire of the members: to broaden students' background in classical antiquity and to try out activities which might be carried out in high school Latin classwork. Membership is open to all students that have studied Latin and arc interested in the club. Meetings were held bi-weekly, the minutes being kept in Latin by various members. Don Babbit was selected as permanent program chairman. New committees were selected to assist him with each program.
Several very interesting programs were held. Early in February the members gathered in Miss Arbuthnot's apartment to hear a radio discussion of the works of Lucretius on the program. The Invitation to Learning. At other times Roman education and the educational theory of Quintilian, the first Roman school teacher, were discussed. On April twenty-third a skit, showing the lives of Romulus and Remus, was presented by way of celebrating the birthday of Rome on April 21, 732 B. C. At another time, with the cooperation of Latin students in the training school, the skit, A Day Without Latin, was presented to show the value of Latin. At this time songs were sung from the book, Carmina.
