 EDITOR . . . OLIVER GLANZMAN BUSINESS MANAGER . . . HAROLD DOORNINKiIhe 1942 Jteleiean PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE RIVER FALLS. WISCONSIN VOLUME 31DEDICATION To the men in the service—alumni, former students, and'our classmates—this 1942 MELETEAN is dedicated. In ever-increasing numbers they have left their occupations and the classroom to protect and preserve those ideals for which our country stands. Wherever they may be we hail them.We, too, on the home front have been alert. An accelerated program to enable students to complete their college work in shorter time, and courses to prepare them better for service, both at the front and at home, have been inaugu- rated. In Red Cross activities and war bond drives we have also tried to do our part.Decreased enrollment, departure from the cam put of students to enter the service, an accelerated program have been handicaps in this eventful year of 1941-1942, but the MELETEAN has tried promptly to adfust its plans to changed conditions, and presents this volume with the hope that you will find in it an accurate and interesting story in picture and word of a busy year.BOOK ONE . . .

The members, through many hours of hard work in practice and play, uphold the sport ideals and traditions of RFSTC. They never willfully act in such a way as to reflect discredit on any team of which they are a member and supporter. This spirit was particularly displayed this year despite the great handicap the teams confronted because ot the loss of men to the armed forces of this country. The outstanding achievement of the year was the making of a plaque in honor of the men from the club in the armed services who are graduates or undergraduates ot this school. This plaque will give the names of the men and the branch of service in which they are serving their country. The club provided the recreation room with additional trophies of championship teams and pictures of the teams.

The game was marred by frequent fumbles on the part of both teams and a general raggedness in play characteristic of early season form. Winona drew first blood as they executed a beautiful dropkick from the 35-yard line in the waning minutes of the first half. River Falls put over the winning tally in the third quarter by means of a sustained drive. A 30-yard pass from Trecker to Schmidt put the ball on the 2-yard line from where Boettcher plunged over on the first try. Trecker and Boettcher were the spearheads of the initial victory of the season, while the whole team showed pleasing spirit and charge for such an inexperienced aggregation, several of the starting Falcons having no previous college experience.

River Falls made its first home appearance on October 4 in a conference game against the highly touted La Crosse Indians, and once again the Falcons covered themselves with glory before going down to defeat by the score of 7-6. The highlight of the game came in the first quarter when "Doc" Schmidt, aggressive Falcon left end, stole the ball out of the arms of the astonished La Crosse fullback, Wilhelm, and streaked 35 yards down the sidelines to score. The attempt at conversion failed. The 6-0 score remained until midway through the final period when the La Crosse guns began to explode and the Falcons' lack of reserves began to have a telling effect. A 64-yard drive was culminated with Wilhelm going across from the one-foot line with the tying counter. Lupie, La Crosse right end, then gave the Indians the winning point as he coolly converted the extra point. Schmidt, Schulenberg, Lanners and Trecker gained the distinction of playing the entire 60 minutes for the second game in a row. Rasmussen also showed up well in the line despite a painful leg injury incurred in the Winona game a week previous. First down honors also went to La Crosse, garnering 13 to 4 for the Falcons. A week later on October 11 River Falls once more put pre-game predictions to scorn by holding a supposedly far superior Gustavus Adolphus team to a 13-13 tie in a thrilling contest at Ramer Field. 69Burton Boettcher Co-Captain William Trecker Co-Captain The Falcons started off in a manner that led the crowd to believe the boys from St. Peter. Minnesota were going to be completely "snowed under." Joe Oft scored the first Falls touchdown on a nifty 8-yard sweep around right end. Not content with a 6-0 lead, the local eleven roared back and scored once more after a long march. With the ball on the 27-yard line. Trecker hurled a pass into the end zone that deflected off the arms of Schmidt into the hands of the alert Babbitt. Schmidt converted and the score became 13-0. Immediately afterwards the Minnesota lads decided it was their turn to put on an offensive show and slipped over two touchdowns against the tiring Falcon squad, Coach Ronnmgs boys scoring their final tally in the closing minutes of the game, and thankful to go home with the resulting deadlock. Gustavus slightly outgained River Falls from the field, 222 yards to 196. The scrapping- Falcons continued their amazing play and in a night game on October 17 they subjected Superior to a 20-0 licking on the Yellowjackets’ home field. The decisive Falls victory was the worst defeat Superior had suffered for many years in conference play The Lowerymen began the scoring in the second quarter with an effective mixture of running and pass plays. Trecker raced to the 2-yard line after being on the receiving end of a tricky shovel pass, and from here Burton Boettcher lugged the pigskin over for the first score. The Falcons, however, refused to let up on their red-hot play at this point and put the game on ice by shoving over two more touchdowns. A rifle pass from Joe Oft to Schmidt in the end zone registered the second touchdown and Schmidt's conversion made it 13-0. With a thirteen point deficit against them, the Superior boys took to the air in a desperate attempt to score, but their efforts backfired when Trecker plucked one of their passes out of the air and set the stage for the final Falcon score. Bob Mraz, substitute Falls fullback, galloped over from the 6-yard line and Schmidt's place kick made the final score 20-0. This game perhaps marked the high-water point in the Falcons play as every player that got into the game turned in a brilliant performance. The line play from end to end was a thorn in the side of the Yellowjackets all evening and the Falcon backs simply packed too much speed and shiftiness for their foes to cope with. Led by their devastating freshman fullback. Storti, Stout Institute put a damper on the October 25 Falcon Homecoming celebration by grinding out a 21-6 decision at Ramer Field. The first quarter saw the fighting local eleven battle on even terms with the much larger invaders. Stout began the scoring in the second quarter by means of a sustained ground attack, featuring the pile-driving Storti who. though hit many times, always refused to be brought down. The Stout ace carried the ball over from the 5-yard line for the first counter and the place kick by Andrews made the score 7-0. The Falcons then took over after receiving Stout's kickoff and marched to a touchdown, aided largely by Trecker's sparkling play. Trecker's passing and Boettcher's plunging brought the ball to the 5-yard line where Trecker knifed over from the 5-yard line as Rasmussen and Schulenberg had opened a fine gap in Stout's fast charging forward wall. Schmidt's attempt at conversion failed and the half-time score stood at 7-6. 70Harold Schmidt Damon Schulenberg The second half found Stout leading the way. The Falcons twice stopped Blue Devil advances to the Fall's five and one yard lines, but a Stout pass finally found its mark. Coach Johnson's squad made another counter in the final quarter as the huge weight advantage the Falcons had to give up in the line had a telling effect. Stout's sure-footed Andrews once more added the extra point with his accurate toe, establishing the final score of 21-6. On the following Saturday the Falcons found more opposition than they anticipated from the Zornmen of Eau Claire and had to be content with a scoreless deadlock in a tussle played at Eau Claire's Carson Field. Time and time agoin during the first half River Falls drove down within the shadow of their foe’s goal posts only to be repulsed by the determined defense of the underdogs. Likewise during the second half the Falcons outplayed Eau Claire, but found it impossible to push a winning tally into the end zone, and the game ended with the Falls having the ball within their opponent's 10-yard line. It was a great defensive game for the boys from Eau Claire and they deserve a great deal of credit for playing such a high spirited game as they did, as they had lost all of their encounters prior to this contest. Boettcher played his usual outstanding game as fullback for the Falcons and his effective line plunging accounted for much of the large amount of yardage piled up by River Falls. River Falls closed the season in a rather dismal way on November 8 at Ramer Field when they were the victims of a 23-7 shellacking administered by St. John's University of Collegeville. Minnesota. Cooch Joe Benda's boys scored their first touchdown before the Falcons realized what was happening. Shortly after the kickoff Winkler, St. John's left end. recovered a blocked kick on the River Falls' 28: on three plays the Johnnies lugged the ball to the 18-yard line from where Shanahan, opposing left halfback, scampered around right end to score. The try for the extra point was good. Shortly after this Coach Lowery's men began their longest march of the afternoon via the air waves and tied the score. Kelly pulled in a long pass from O. Boettcher to start the Falcons underway on their drive, and a few plays later he snared an aerial thrown by Tracker which brought the ball deep into St. John's territory. Tracker then scored on a well executed shovel pass from O. Boettcher. "Doc" Schmidt kicked the extra point and the half-time score then became 7-7. St. John's numerically superior aggregation came back with an unusually speedy attack in the second half and by means of sustained drives scored two more touchdowns and a fine 22-yard field goal. The Falcons were unable to cope with the pony backs of the invaders who constantly ripped off large gains that set up the scores. The game was the swan song for Peterson. Schmidt, Schulenberg, Trecker, B. Boettcher and Kelly of the Falcons, all of whom gave outstanding performances in their final debut. Kelly especially came in for noteworthy praise with his fine work at end, for he had seen little collegiate competition prior to this game. 71Emmett Kelly A terror to opposing linemen at all times was the terrific plunging of Burton Boettcher, star Falcon fullback. "Big Boettch" came to Rivor Falls as a sophomore after spending his initial collogiato year at Eau Clairo and immediately stepped into a varsity position. Testimony to Boettchor’s skilled play is shown by the fact that he was soloctod to an all-conference position in 1940 and 1941. He scored seven touchdowns in 1940 and was co-captain of the 1941 eleven. Another big gap that will bo hard to fill next yoar is tho position vacatod by the graduation of Harold Schmidt. "Doc” providod many a thrill for tho fans with his excellent pass catching and his ability to smash aside tho interference and nail the boll carrier. Porhops one of his greatost foots came in the La Crosso game this yoar when ho stole tho boll out of the arms of an opposing back and raced down the sidelines for a touchdown. "Doc" showod his versatility this year when he kicked the points after touchdowns and evon playod in the offonsivo bock-fiold on kick-offs. He is a throo-lotter mon in football and was chosen on tho all-conference second team in 1940 ond 1941. In the opinion of Coach Lowery, there was not a bettor guard in the conference this year than Damon Schulenberg, one of the sovoral Falcon athlotos that have motriculoted here from Wells. Minnesota. Dospito his lack of size. "Schule" was playing football every minuto he was on the field and he usually spent most of tho aftornoon in the opposition's back-field. He is also a threo lottor winner and was given a berth on the all-conforonco first team. To Emmett Kelly, roserve Falcon ond for sovoral seasons, went the thrill of playing an outstanding game in his last collegiate appearance—-tho contest with St. Johns. In this game Kelly made several beautiful pass catches, one of which led to the only River Falls score of the afternoon. In addition Emmett proved to be a fine defensive player at all times. He was the recipient of one letter. Still another big loss by graduation from this year's football team is thet of co-captain Bill Tracker. Bill came to River Falls after spending a year on the regular freshmen team at Northwestern University. Triple-threat Bill was a thorn in the side of Falcon opponents for three years, his accurate passing, slippery running and fine kicking setting the stage for many a Falcon score. The pass combination of Tracker to Schmidt was a thing especially feared by all River Falls rivals. Bill was an all-conference man in 1941. 72McCardle Noyes Henry Schmidt Baird Brace Peloquin Storzer Paulson Lundmark Poppy Foss Deiss Boettcher BASKETBALL Letter Awards Voted by the Athletic Council in Basketball for the 1941-1942 Season MAJOR LETTERS Schmidt Peloquin Noyes Deiss Paulson Foss Baird Lundmark Poppy Henry MINOR LETTERS McCardle Brace Boettcher RESULTS OF THE SEASON CONFERENCE NON-CONFERENCE River Falls .... 37 Eau Claire 39 River Falls ... 67 Macalester 56 River Falls ... 32 La Crosse .... 56 River Falls ... 22 St. Olaf 48 River Falls .... 50 Superior 62 River Falls ... 29 St. Thomas 53 River Falls .... 28 Stout ..... 47 River Falls ... 29 St. Olaf .... 41 River Falls .... 38 Eau Claire .... 46 River Falls ... 42 St. Thomas 54 River Falls ... 39 La Crosse 48 River Falls ... 49 Macalester 68 River Falls .... 35 Superior 56 River Falls .... 49 Stout .... 46 CONFERENCE STANDINGS WON LOST Stout 6 2 Superior 5 3 La Crosse 5 3 Eau Claire 5 3 River Falls 1 7 Player Named on All-Conference Second Team Harold Schmidt, Guard 73Noyes Schmidt Co-Captain Peloquin Co-Captain With only four lettermen returning, the prospects for a successful quintet for the 1941-42 season were not bright. As in football. Coach Lowery found his array of basketball talent depleted by the armed forces. However, Falcon hopes received a still more stinging blow when Ken Rasmussen, stellar center, failed to return to school after the Christmas holidays. Some of the gloom over the Falcon camp was lifted when the Falls cagers began the season in a very auspicious manner with a 67-56 victory over a husky Macalester five on the local court. The Falcons appeared to be in midseason form as they caged forty-two per cent of their shots. A total of twelve Falcons saw action in the game. These included Peloquin, Rasmussen, Schmidt, and Henry, major letter winners, Noyes and Deiss, minor letter winners, and Paulson, Poppy, Lundmark, O. Boettcher, and Morrow, newcomers to the varsity squad. Ken Rasmussen proved that he was destined to be one of the finest performers on the Northwest hardcourts by pacing the Falcon attack with nineteen points. River Falls journeyed to Northfield, Minnesota, for the second contest of the season to meet the St. Olaf Lions and came home on the short end of a 48-22 score. The Oles, one of the pre-season favorites in the Minnesota conference, boasted an experienced outfit and had little trouble with the Falcons. The Falls' shooting form was in sharp contrast to the Macalester opener as they connected only eight times on seventy field shots. Ken Rasmussen paced the losers' attack with 8 points, followed by Henry and Deiss with four each. St. Thomas was the second Minnesota foe to defeat the Falcons in a week, as Ray Zukaitis sparked the Tommies to a 52-29 victory in a game played in St. Paul. The Fallsmen once more found it difficult to gain an effective scoring punch despite the fact that Coach Lowery used his entire traveling sauad of fourteen men in an effort to find the most effective five-man combination. Peloquin continued his fine play and led the local scoring with seven points. Our bucketeers once more took it on the chin from the rampaging St. Olaf quintet when the invaders defeated the Lowerymen 41-29 in a return engagement in the local gym. The Falcons kept on fairly even terms with the foe during the first half, as the score at the intermission read 21-15 in favor of the Oles. However, during the second half the set plays of the Norsemen began to click and with the aid of several pass interceptions they stepped out into a commanding lead. Farness, Ole forward, proved to be especially troublesome to the Falcons as he led the scoring by garnering 11 points. Led by their sharpshooting guard, Lund, Eau Claire turned back the attempt of the Falls to win their initial conference game when they eked out a 39-37 victory in a pre-holiday game. The score was deadlocked several times throughout the game, with Eau Claire holding a 20-17 advantage at half-time; however, the Falcons came back with a rush and grabbed a 22-20 lead. From here on the game was nip and tuck all the way. The Falcons' bid for a victory received a blow when Rasmussen went out on fouls in the late stage of the second half. In his last game as a Falcon, Ken led the local scoring with I I points and his effective one-hand shots from the side of the court were instrumental in breaking up the invaders' zone defense. 74LaCrosse was the first team after the holidays to dampen the bid of the Falcons to get into the win column once more as they smashed out a 56-32 victory on the Indians' court. The Mississippi Citians took an early lead and never relinquished it. The half-time score read 27-19. Peloquin and Baird were the high scorers for the Falls; Lupie and Wulk for LaCrosse. Don LaBlanc put on a one-man show as Superior tripped the Falcons in the next conference game by a 62-50 count. The Lowery aggregation, however, made a struggle of it all the way and left the floor at the half, trailing by only one point, 31-30. However, the loss of "Doc” Schmidt in the second half was disastrous to the Falls defense and allowed LaBlanc to go on a scoring rampage once more. He collected 12 field goals for his evening's work. Peloquin and Schmidt perhaps played the best ball of their careers for the Falcons, collecting 14 and II points respectively and playing outstanding defensive games as well. Outscoring the whole Falcon team, Harlan Hesselman led the Champion Stout Blue Devils to a 47-28 victory over the Lowerymen on the Stout floor. The Blue Devils got the jump at the start of the game and set a pace that brushed the Falls off their feet, leading 28-7 at the half. River Falls came back to outscore their foes in the second half, but could not overcome the huge lead built up by the champs. Hesselman dropped 29 points by virtue of 10 field goals and nine gift shots. "Doc” Schmidt led the Falcon scoring by caging three field goals. River Falls once more turned thumbs down to the temptations of Dame Victory and went down to defeat at the hands of Eau Claire, 46-38, in a hotly contested struggle. Before the final whistle blew, six Falcons had been sent to the showers with four personal fouls, a good explanation for any defeat. Eau Claire built up a 24-14 lead at half-time after the Falcons had led in the early stages of the game. Accuracy from the free throw line enabled the foe to retain their margin in the second half. Schmidt led the Falls scoring with 12 points. Lehmen flipped in 18 counters for Eau Claire. Turning once more to a Minnesota opponent, the Lowerymen found a vastly improved Macalester aggregation too tough to defeat a second time, and as a result received a 68-49 shellacking on the Mac home floor. Paced by Rollie DeLapp, the St. Paul boys romped to a 45-13 lead at the midway period and coasted home the rest of the game on the basis of that margin. DeLapp rang up 24 points tor Macalester. while Landmark led the scoring for the Falls. In the last non-conference game of the season St. Thomas invaded the local court and inflicted a 54-42 defeat upon the Falcons. Once more the first-half jinx proved fatal to River Falls’ chances when the Tommies ran up a 30-12 lead in the first 20 minutes. In the second half splurge the Falcons out-scored their opponents, 30-24. Faxvog and Peloquin led the scoring of each team with 11 points apiece. Henry Foss Boettcher Lundmark McCardle PaulsonPoppy Baird Oeiss The Lowerymen next traveled up to Superior and took a 56-35 beating for their efforts. The Falcons defense was unable to cope with LaBlanc, star Yellowjacket center, who hit from all angles and garnered 31 points. The boys of Ted Whereat went immediately into the lead and held a safe margin throughout. No player of the Red and White was outstanding in scoring during this one-sided contest. Unable to erase a 10-point LaCrosse half-time lead, the Falcons fell victims to the Indians for the second time by a score of 48-39. The second half was played on exceedingly even terms after LaCrosse had grabbed a 25-15 lead at half-time. The Lowerymen gave an exceptionally good account of themselves throughout the game and gave a possible hint of what might happen in the last game of the season against Stout. In the lost encounter of the season, River Falls astonished the basketball fans of the Northwest by turning bock the Champion Stout Blue Devils, 49-46, on the local floor. The large crowd of Stout and Falcon fans were treated to an exceptionally fine brand of basketball, and the game was a thriller from whistle to whistle. The highly touted Blue Devils led, 24-22, at half-time, but the Falcons made good use of a fast break and always kept within easy striking distance of their foes. During the second half. Coach Johnson's boys found the inspiring play of the Falcons too much to cope with, and the Falcons went into a 47-42 lead with two minutes of play remaining. However, Hesselman and company thereupon added a brace of field goals to bring the score 47-46, but George Noyes then clinched the game by scoring on a shot from under the bucket. The game was the finale for Noyes. Peloquin, and Schmidt, all of whom played brilliant roles in the extremely satisfying win. Sophomore Harrison Henry came through with the brilliant play he had potentially shown in every game and led the Falcon scoring with 18 big points. Basketball will also suffer severe losses next year by the graduation of three stellar players. "Doc" Schmidt was the only member of the Falcon squad to be named on the all-conference team. Schmidt proved his versatility on the hardcourt by alternating between center and guard and was equally effective at both positions. He had a fine eye and scored many a Falcon point from far out on the floor. Coach Lowery took advantage of his rugged defensive play by putting him on the star players of opposing teams. "Doc" was a three letter winner in basketball. To George Noyes went the honor of being perhaps the leading cog in the Falcon's amazing triumph over the champion Stout Blue Devils in the last game of the season. He led the inspiring Falcon play by his beautiful snaring of rebounds and dropping in eight crucial points. Two of these counters came in the last minute of play, as he dropped in a bucket to clinch the Falls victory. Noyes proved to be a steady performer at all times and possessed an unusually fine shooting eye. He was a two letter winner. "Carrot-topped" Stan Peloquin was the steadiest player on the Falcon squad and. in addition, was the team's leading scorer. Red gave Falcon fans many a thrill with his accurate push shots and likewise gave opponents many a headache. Peloquin got his chance last year when he filled the shoes of Swede Nelson and has provea to be a star ever since. His loss will be keenly felt by next year's Falcon squad. He was a three letter winner. 76Kliszcz BASEBALL Kelly. Olson and Hageseth put a blight on he exceHent chances of R.var Falls.mprovmg attained last year.

Stillwater TENNIS—GOLF Two of the biggest foes the Falcon golf and tonnis teams had to combat wore the shortage of equipment ond the acceleration of school programs. However, despite shortened schedules. Falcon prospocts in both of these sports appeared rather good. The outlook for the golf team was exceptionally bright with two freshmen. Foss and Prucha, supplementing Jacobson and Schmidt of last year's team. Sophomore Hugh McCardle rounded out the squad. Matches woro scheduled with the River Falls city team, La Crosse. Eau Claire and two with Stout. In tennis Coach Lowery was faced with tho problem of replacing King. Andorson and Palm from last year's squad. The nucleus of the team was formed around veterans Wessels. Willink and Junkman. La Crosso. Concordia. Eau Claire end Stout provided the Falcon opposition. Junkman Wessels Willink 77SPORTS With at least eighty per cent of the men students participating in one or more events, the intramural program for 1941-42 was run off in good style. Under the capable direction of Clifford Juedes a well rounded series of sports was presented and the various interests of all the participants were thus satisfied. Each active participant was given points for participation in the event while bonus points were given to winners or members of a winning team. Medals were given to the three students who chalked up the greatest number of points. The fall program began with the ever-popular touch-football. When the final results were tabulated the Skippers, captained by "Doc" Palon, were found to be on top of the six team standings. Other members of the championship squad were Drehmel, Wilson. Pap-penfuss, Zignego, Qualman, Schumitch, Maas, and John Peterson. Second place honors went to the Playboys led by Newell Olson. Other fall sports included horseshoe, crib-bage, table tennis, and bowling. The honors in horseshoe were divided between Howard Hull and Howard Chinnock. Junkman, Ott, O'Brien and Finstad all reached the quarterfinals in the cribbage tourney, but the matches never went beyond this point, the contestants all apparently fearing each other's strength. Eugene Hopkins took the table tennis championship after a lively tourney. INTRAMURAL 78Wessels Jacobson Doolittle Wilson Meehan Harlander Ubbelohde Willink INTRAMURAL CHAMPIONSHIP BASKETBALL TEAM The basketball league was unusually active with several powerful teams battling for top honors. Doug Harlander's Boilermakers finally emerged champions, as they proved their mettle in the round robin tournament. The Hoosiers. under the direction of Beyl, took second place. In the class tournament which followed, the juniors won first place honors by edging out the sophomores, 38-37. in a thrilling championship tussle. In the annual free throw contest Harlander led the field by dropping in 36 out of 50. Doolittle ran a close second by sinking 35. Swimming is a sport that has gained importance at RFSTC during the past few years. Freshmen physical education classes meet once a week for swimming ond the pool is open several times a week to the upperclassmen for recreation swims and mixed recreation swimming. In addition to this classes in life saving and water safety are conducted for prospective life-guards. River Falls sent a swimming team to the conference meet at Stout lost year, but due to current conditions a team was not organized this year. Team bowling wos abandoned this year because of the lack of participants, but four weeks of individual bowling were held in which Don Johnson led the field with a 163 overage, followed by Don Elkington with 151. Activities that remained to be finished in the closing weeks of school were checkers, volleyball, all school table tennis singles, mixed doubles in table tennis, shuffleboard. softball, and a track and field meet. Part of the winter program had to be cut short due to unfavorable weather for winter sports. Thus the plans for an ice hockey league and a winter sports carnival had to be abandoned. 79Lynch Sfronks Fellrath Raawe THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Katherine Lynch..................................................... ....President Margaret Stronks..................................................

Each Tuesday and Thursday is set aside for such group sports as hockey, pinball, basketball, softball, volleyball-each in its season. Every Wednesday throughout the year is devoted to swimming. Besides these the W.A.A. encourages several individual sports. Members of W.A.A. are given points for all participation in sports. When a girl has a total of 500 points, she is eligible for a letter. This year five girls have earned this award: June Johnson, Vonnie Fellrath, Irene Reawe, Marjorie Dempsey, Alma Goltz. In order to retain membership a girl must earn at least fifty points a year. To senior girls who have been members of the organization for four years, awards are given. This year four seniors earned that distinction: June Johnson, Vonnie Fellrath, Irene Raawe, Joyce Chubb. Membership is open to all girls interested in sports. The group sports are well organized and supervised by members chosen from the organization. Sports heads are elected at the beginning of each new season, each organizing, supervising, and attending all practices of her particular sport. Ping-Pong Tennis Sanford Dempsey Froilend Greslie •IFellrath Chubb Patton Goltz Hovde Nelson Dempsey Miller BASKETBALL The intramural group sports for girls begins each fall with hockey. With eleven girls to a team, these teams compete against one another as long as the weather permits. There were not enough girls present to carry on a tournament this year: so the play was all informal. Pinball was a very active sport this year. After several practice sessions the girls chose teams and elected captains. The captains were Alma Goltz, Dorothy Sampson, and Geraldine Hovde. These three teams played a round robin tournament in which Alma Goltz' team won all their games. An honor team was chosen from the forty girls who played. Basektball, the winter sport, is usually the most popular, and this year was no exception. About forty girls participated in the games. Four teams captained by Geneva Bleisner, Dorothy Sampson, Marjorie Dempsey, and llene Hardy played three round robins. Geneva Bleisner's team was the winner, having won two out of three of these cycles. Volleyball is rather an in-between season sport, and. due to the change in the school curriculum and an early spring, it had a very short season. Spring and the close of school sports brings the softball season. This is another popular sport, for which many girls go out. No tournament is held: playing is done informally each time among those present. 82Sampson Goltz Dempsey Patten Hardy Hovde Lecheler Falbe PINBALL Besides these organized activities the swimming pool is open to all girls in school for an hour every week. Many girls take advantage of this opportunity, as they do all the sports. Parallel to group sports activities, a very extensive individual sports program is carried out. Numerous singles and doubles tournaments are held in each sport. During the winter such indoor sports as ping-pong, shuffleboard. duck-pins, badminton, bowling, and deck-tennis are popular. If enough persons become interested in these various activities. both singles and doubles competitions are held; if only a few are interested, only a singles tourney is organized. Our most popular type of tournament is the ladder, in which the object is to win your way to the top rung of the ladder. This year tournaments were held in nearly all these sports. With spring interest in outdoor activities such sports as tennis, archery, croquet, hiking, booting, fishing, and swimming are brought out. Usually in the spring some kind of camping trip is planned. A ploy day is conducted with Eau Claire, and port of the competition is in these sports. 83Kostus Hedlund Brace Snoeyenbos Willink Kramschuster Raawe Lynch Hayman Wheeler Webb DEBATE SQUAD DEBATE SCHEDULE 1941-1942 October 9 Discussion at Eau Claire Teachers Convention Eau Claire January 10 High School Discussion Contest Here Eau Claire Tournament Eau Claire February 6, 7, 8 Red River Valley Tournament Moorhead February 20, 21 Stevens Point Tournament March 2, 3, 4 Northwest Debate Tournament St. Paul March 7 Discussion on Inter-American Affairs Minneapolis March 14 .River Falls "B" Tournament April 5-10 National Pi Kappa Delta Tournament Minneapolis April 18 Webb Raawe Lynch Kramschuster WINNERS OF THE FARGO TOURNAMENT DEBATE tournament, February 6, 7, 8, our teams (Webb-Raawe, Kramschuster-Lynch, Willink-Snoeyenbos.

IN ACTION 86 PI KAPPA DELTA Glanzman Kramschuster Raawa Lynch Webb Willink Pi Kappa Delta is a national honorary, forensic fraternity. Local chapters are organized on college campuses. The purpose is to stimulate progress in and promote intercollegiate debate, oratory, and public speaking. Members are granted advanced degrees according to their achievements. The River Falls chapter, organized in 1936. sponsors a high school discussion tournament in the fall and a high school district speech contest in the spring, and a debate tournament for inexperienced college debaters. The outstanding event of this school year was participation in the National Pi Kappa Delta Convention which was held in Minneapolis from April 6-10. The local chapter was represented by two debate teams, one orator, one extempore speaker and a delegate to the Student Assembly. Three members of Pi Kappa Delta, Irene Raawe, Dolores Kramschuster, and Lois Webb graduate this spring. As veterans of so many battles, Raawe and Kramschuster will receive keys of the degree of Special Distinction, and Lois Webb, the key of the degree of Honor.

During the year it produces one three-act play and numerous one-act plays. New members are taken into the organization in the fall after a thorough test of their dramatic ability. Membership is limited to thirty-five. To retain membership each person must keep a high scholastic average, and he must take an active part in all functions of the organization. Points are awarded for various services, and a certain number must be attained each year. To the senior gaining the most points on award is given on Honors Day. Masquers close their year with a formal banquet, at which they elect officers and make tentative plans for the following year. This year the Masquers bought a seventy-five dollar bond to help our "defense drive." 95SEVEN KEYS TO BALDPATE By George M.

Jeanne Treadwell Stage and Lighting....Stanley Atkinson, June Johnson, Merle Michaelson, Joyce Chubb "What's he a sayin1, Lige?' "I'll get you for this." 96In "Seven Keys to Baldpate" Dean Gordon, as William Hallowell Magee, made a bet with Merle Michael-son. the owner of the Baldpate resort, that he could write a first class mystery story in twenty-four hours. The only thing Magee asked for was the quietness offered by Baldpate. a resort in the mountains, in the dead of winter. Mr. Quimby (Albert Zahradka), who was the rather ignorant caretaker at Baldpate, and his wife (Alma Sumner), opened the old resort and welcomed the half-frozen Magee in the middle of a bitter cold night. Magee learned from them that there was only one key to Baldpate in existence, and that there was a crabby old hermit (Glenn Cole) near by. From this Magee proceeded to write the play which the audience saw in the two main acts. Thomas Hayden (Glenn Snoeyenbos), the president of the Asauewam-Reuton Suburban Railway Company, had agreed to pay a vast amount of money for a certain city franchise; a franchise that the political crowd at Reuton had no power to grant. Bob Hotal, as Jim Cargan, the crooked mayor of Reuton, and his man "Friday," Lou Max (Norbert Snider), were going to cheat him out of this money and use it for campaign funds to fight the opposition party at the next election. If Hayden were to sue to get his money back, they were going to expose him for entering into an agreement which would be nothing short of bribery. Joe Klucerich, as Bland, Hayden's right-hand man, has the money in a safe in the Baldpate resort where Magee is trying to write a story, but has many interruptions. The first interruption was the appearance of Mary Norton (Marlys Lowe), the newspaper woman who had got wind of a story, and her companion, Mrs. Rhodes (Georgia Hopkins). Mary Norton and Bland both had keys, thus with Magee's key, there were three keys to Baldpate. One by one, Peters, the hermit, Myra Thornhill (Annette Gantenbein). and Jim Cargan. who were all involved in the money deal, appeared, and all of them had keys to Baldpate! So far there were six keys to Baldpate. With the seventh key. the owner of Baldpate came in, and he revealed to Magee that these people were not real crooks, but actors. The joke was on Magee. He found out. however, that Mary was the genuine article and fell in love with her.THE LITTLE PRISON Directed by June Johnson Scene: An elevator in a department store.

A more democratic student attitude is thereby stimulated. During the years that this organization has been in existence it has been assuming more and varied activities. Some of the annual duties are: the election of editors of The Student Voice and the Meletean; the publication of the freshman handbook; the organization of the school calendar, scheduling organization meetings: the purchase of magazines for the men's union, women's social room, and the health cottage: the enforcement of the payment of class dues via the "blacklist": nominations for Homecoming chairman: supervision and maintenance of the bulletin board; care and maintenance of the radios in both buildings: and sponsorship of Recognition Day. It is the duty of the Senate to ratify all social events scheduled by organizations; to audit their books and grant charters to new organizations. This year the Senate purchased equipment for the kitchenette in South Hall, and two new flags for the auditorium. It conducted the selection of outstanding students for recognition in "Who's Who Among College and Universities of America." The Student Senate held a Dad’s Day in honor of all fathers of the students. It also provided for the mailing of the school paper to all our men in the service. To do our bit for defense the Student Senate set aside two weeks in April for a "defense drive" and set the goal at $1,000. In less than two weeks this goal had been passed! 101Doolittlo Bloisner Nicol Dyer Monteith Harlander Lynch Miller THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OFFICERS Theodore Miller Geneva Bleisner Duane Doolittle Lester Dyer MEMBERS Emily Gilbertson Robert Nicol Katherine Lynch ..Chairman Theodore Miller Margaret Monteith Rita Salmon The Social Committee, a subcommittee of the Student Senate, consisting of eight members, two from each class, selected to work with a Senate representative, makes arrangements for and takes charge of all social functions financed by the Senate throughout the year. Members take turns at assuming responsibility for the numerous school dances. A social calendar is made out for the year, and all social functions have to be registered on that calendar. This committee is organized early in the fall in order to be able to function during the first week of school. During this week it sponsors the all-school dance. Football season is accompanied by many social functions. The biggest event is the Homecoming dance. This part of the Homecoming celebration is the work of the Social Committee. This year an excellent orchestra, Guy Dileo, was engaged for the occasion. Following the Li'l Abner theme, a Sadie Hawkins dance was given, the girls asking men for dotes and dances. The Christmas holidays would not be complete without the all-school Christmas party. The gymnasium is decorated in holiday style and a good orchestra hired. This closes one-half of the social season of the school. The orchestras engaged this year have been exceptionally good. Many new groups were hired as well as the old bands we have engaged before. To close the thousand dollar defense drive this committee sponsored a MacArthur dance. An orchestra from Macalester furnished the music. Admission was defense stamps or bonds. Two other outstanding parties were the Valentine and spring tennis court dance. The latter is held on South Hall campus; the cement tennis courts become the dance floor. These parties are all in addition to the usual week-end dances. During the winter many dances were held after basketballKulstad Jacobson A. Johnson L.

The first service is offered to new students in school during orientation week, when freshmen are given assistance and entertainment in that first week away from home. Programs are held every Monday night to which speakers are invited to discuss such vital problems os "The Church and War," "The Basis for a Permanent Peace," "Military Training," "Student Honor." and many others. Another part of the program consisted of Sunday morning discussions at the home of "Prof. Jake." The YMCA climaxed the year with a "Religious Emphasis Week" which they sponsored jointly with the YWCA. Miss Jennie M. Doidge was the guest speaker and adviser for the week. Much credit must be given to the members of the cabinet who plan the meeting and who continually strive to train themselves in leadership through the various meetings and discussions they attend. noFleming Sumner Fellrath Hophan Stronks Whitaker Monteith Rustin Dahlquist Thomson Setter Solheim Treadwell THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Margaret Monteith.....President Anita Setter..........Secretary Jeanne Treadwell..Vice-President Vonnie Fellrath ......Treasurer ADVISORY BOARD Mrs. John Knapp Miss Alma Rausch Mrs. Donald Elert CABINET Helen Rustin........................................Bulletin Board Chairman Mildred Fleming..................................Finance Chairman Marjorie Dahlquist.................................Music Chairman Alma Sumner......................................Program Chairman Irene Hophan.....................................Project Chairman Carol Whitaker.................................Publicity Chairman Margaret Stronks..................................Social Chairman Marjorie Thomson...................Social Room, Worship Chairman Esther Solheim......................................Social Service Chairman Miss Hathom ..................................Adviser The Young Women's Christian Association began the year by sponsoring a freshmen mixer for the new girls. Each member chose one of these girls as "little sister" to help her become acquainted with the school and its activities. It also acted as hostess to the Area Conference in the fall at which twelve schools were represented. Various discussion groups were held and a guest speaker invited. The girls had lunch together at noon and a banquet at night. It was one of the most important undertakings this group has ever attempted, and it was very successful. The projects sponsored by the YWCA this year were a dancing class, a knitting class, various vesper services and a "Religious Emphasis" week. The Puff-Pant Prom, a strictly feminine delight, was more successful and more unique than ever this year. Margaret Stronks was the general chairman of arrangements. Several of the girls attended the Spring Area Conference at Camp Ihduhapi in Minnesota. The girls who attended the Lake Geneva Conference were Jeanne Treadwell. Anita Setter. Mary Louise Jacobson, and Vonnie Fellrath. At the spring retreat the program for the coming year was outlined by both old and new cabinet members.

Sophomores were elected in March and initiated into the organization in May. Its aim is to attain professional and social improvement in elementary teaching through discussions, social projects, and a study of problems common to all. Such speakers as Mrs. Ritchie, who talked on her doll collection hobby: Mrs. Prucha, who spoke about some of the phases of teaching; and Miss McGregor, who demonstrated children’s books were guests this year. During Book Week the members attended the book institute in St. Paul where they learned many interesting methods and displays to be used in making books appeal. The activities were carried on with the organization aim in mind—to attain professional improvement. All this information the girls hope to use in their own future teaching experience. The social activities of the club were concluded with a picnic in the spring, held on the site of the first house in River Falls, which Mrs. Frank Rnn described so well in her interesting talk on pioneer days here.

All students enrolled in the primary department of this college are eligible to membership. The first project of the ACE this year was a book exhibit held during the latter part of Book Week in November. Each girl worked on some part of this display, to which the community and out-of-town guests as well as the students were invited. A second project has been a story-hour on Saturdays for children in the community of ages four to nine. Members of the ACE told the stories and gained some valuable experience in presenting and working on this project. Other interesting activities of the ACE have been book reviews concerned with primary education, a Christmas project, and a "studio" night. Again this year undergraduates of the River Falls chapter will honor the graduates with a May breakfast. 13Atkinson Kliszcz Michaelson THE MATHEMATICS CLUB OFFICERS Thomas Kliszcz............................................President Stanley Atkinson................................Secretary-Treasurer Merle Michaelson..........................................Assistant Mr. Kirchen....................................Adviser Mr .

The students themselves act as leaders and do the research necessary for the discussion. During the year each student participates at least once in planning a meeting and carrying on the discussion. Some of the topics chosen for group appreciation this year were: magic circles and magic squares, nine point circle, the theory of complex numbers. Famous men whose biographies were read were: Euler, Nicoloi Labochiviski, Rene Da Cartes. Napier, Professor Gibbs. The club attempts to discuss past mathematicians as well as men of contemporary importance. Members produce puzzles and problems which they think the group would like to try. Some of the highlights of this season were the Homecoming activities: the annual Christmas party, and a "welcome-back" party for Mrs. Eide. Mrs. Eide who has formerly been the adviser of the Mathematics Club was gone during the first two terms of this year. In her absence Mr. Kirchen took over the duties as adviser to the group. 114Timmerman La Ra Chubb Bendix SIGMA CHI SIGMA OFFICERS Joyce Chubb.........................

Membership is selected from all eligible sophomore, junior, and senior women. Those eligible are girls enrolled in the four-year course who have attended River Falls at least one year. They must maintain a 1.5 scholastic average. Fifteen new members were formally initiated last fall. The club is advised by a board of three. Each year the senior member is replaced through election by the club. Two of these members must be from the faculty. The senior member this year is Miss Helen Loeb, who has been an excellent adviser since the formation of the organization three years ago. The other two advisers are Miss Catherine Lieneman and Mrs. Walker D. Wyman. Activities of the club this year included an alumnae tea at Homecoming following the game: a formal banquet in honor of all senior members, a picnic for election of new officers: a tea for all faculty women and mothers of the club members. A scholarship is awarded each year on Honors Day to the outstanding freshman girl, socially and scholastically. 115La Ra Jerdee Holverson SPQR OFFICERS Silvar Star La Ra.........................................President Margaret Jerdee ........... .......... ...... ........Vice President Marie Holverson ..............................

The club is designed to meet a two-fold desire of the members: to broaden the student's background in classical antiquity and to experiment with activities that might be carried on in high school Latin classwork. Meetings are held regularly for this study. A committee of two works with the program chairman to plan and conduct these meetings. Membership is open to all who will loyally support the meetings of the club. Some very interesting programs were planned this year. During the fall Miss Maud Latta gave an illustrated lecture on Greek and Roman architecture. Stories famous in Greek mythology was the subject of another meeting. The Roman Saturnalia, which corresponds to our Christmas, was celebrated in December with the Latin cfass of the Training School as guests. The entire entertainment followed the Roman idea and a Latin skit was presented. During March a Roman banquet was held in the cafeteria. Typical Roman foods were served: no utensils for eating could be used except the fingers; and Roman togas were fashioned from sheets. A story taken from one of Pliny s letters was enacted by the group. All the meetings followed the Roman or Latin theme and were very carefully planned and executed so that every member in the club benefited. 116V. Stronks Harmeling Nelson M.

Its membership is not limited to persons taking art courses. The organization is an excellent means of furthering art appreciation among its own members and the college in general. The Palette Club began the year by doing individual research. Each member studied and planned an individual project which he carried out. Some of these activities were wood-burning, making novel bracelets, original necklaces, decorating and finishing trays, book-ends and other wooden articles. Another interesting study made by all members was charcoal work. To make this more difficult and interesting charcoal profiles were made. Still another phase of art, water color, was discussed by Irene Hophan and Lusetta Biege. Following their discussion, Miss Greene demonstrated several of the points brought out. Each year the organization tries to choose new subjects for study. Such projects, discussions and demonstrations ore chosen by the group os will be of value to the members in future work. To some these aids may lead to a vocation, or to others an avocation or hobby. A breakfast-picnic at Miss Greene's apartment ended the social season for the Palette Club. 17Doornink McKenzie Delorit Ronnerud Rohr May Feiler Ladwig Thor Zahradka Winans May FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA OFFICERS First Half Year Richard Delorit..............President .........

Adviser The purpose of the Collegiate Chapter of the Future Farmers of America is to provide training for potential agriculture teachers who will later act as advisers of high school chapters of the organization. At the beginning of each year the Collegiate Chapter makes out a program of activities which they expect to follow. This outline is followed by the program chairman. During the second week in September the college ag. men acted as hosts to representatives from numerous high schools in the vicinity at a high school judging contest. Thirty-three schools were represented. This is excellent experience for both the college and high school men. On October 22 a rural school fair was held. This consisted of crop exhibits by the rural school boys and girls, judging contests, rural school booths, and a program arranged for all the schools. Preceding the fair the seniors visited these schools, demonstrating the preparation and selection of exhibits. In the first week of December an officers' training conference was conducted. Thirty-five high school officers attended this session. The purpose was to demonstrate the duties of the various officers of the high school chapters and to show how they could make their work more effective in their schools. The seniors were again the leaders of this group. February 18 the annual Future Farmers banquet was held. Mr. I. G. Fay of the State Board of Vocational Education was the principal speaker. Another port of the progrom is in connection with the degree teams. These consist of groups of college students who go out to the high schools to put on the various degrees of the high school chapters. Other activities carried out during the year were parliamentary contests between the different classes, panel discussions on vital farm problems, a public speaking contest held in May concluding the school year.Anderson Rieken Geraets Roatch Foley M.

Second Half Year ........Alice Guerin Gertrude Geraets Arnold Anderson ....Grace Roatch .... Adviser The Rural Life Club includes all students enrolled in the two-year rural department of the college. The organization 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 the students in this department. This year the organization was host to the Inter-County Teachers' meeting with a program and banquet. In the spring members attended the rural conference at Whitewater. The night of the senior class play an alumni banquet was held to which all former members are welcomed. These activities were in addition to the program carried on regularly by the rural students. The success of the club depends greatly upon the program chairman whose duty it is to plan and prepare the meetings for the year. His duties are divided on the half-year basis. This year Grace Roatch and Grace Foley divided honors, each directing activities for half a year. During the year the sophomore or graduating members of the club do cadet teaching for six weeks in the rural schools of St. Croix and Pierce counties. They take over all the responsibilities they will later be expected to have when teaching alone. Their work is closely supervised and helpful criticism given for future work. The director of the Rural Department is Mr. C. L. Eggert and the adviser of the Rural Life Club is Miss Mabel Jorstad. 119Printins and Binding by HARRISON SMITH COMPANY MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA Engravings by BUREAU of ENGRAVING, INC.
