SOUTH HALL STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE RIVER FALLS, WISCONSIN EDITOR ..................Arthur Waters BUSINESS MANAGER ........David Knoll COVER DESIGN ............Gladys Briesemeisterzfts )950 eCstsanPowerful and swift, their strong wings cut the oir with a rush of sound. Wingbeat upon wingbeot — no matter how for the range of flight — the Falcons spiral wider, then swoop downward, a strange force drawing them on. What brings them home? Pride in all that the College stands for — friendly associations, wise counseling, high academic standards, continued growth. May a like force and a similar pride draw the Falcons of the future ever back to the College is the sincere wish of the 1950 Meletean.FALL Page 9 Page 49 Page 89 WINTER SPRINGScetteb 0 1 duct The campus possesses a quiet, natural beauty in its many kinds of trees, its well-kept lawns, and its brick buildings.

Lotto, friend, teacher, and adviser, in appreciation of her many years of devoted service as a member of the faculty and as adviser to the Meletean.Jtt Hemoriam PROFESSOR ROY E. SPRIGGS The college ond community were shocked on Wednesday morning of the eighth of February by the report from Miller Hospital, St. Paul, that Professor Roy E. Spriggs had passed away. Mr. Spriggs came to the college 32 years ago and taught Agricultural Engineering in the Industrial Arts Department. He was an efficient teacher, well-liked by faculty and students alike. To all on the campus his death was a shock and a very saddening circumstance. He will be remembered by all who knew him as one of the community's most excellent citizens. WILLIAM ECELBERGER William Ecelberger, 18, met instant death in a cor-train crash near Bloomer on December 2nd, 1949. "Bill" was from Pepin and a sophomore at River Falls at the time of his untimely death. He was not classified in any professional field in school, but was active in school activities. He was to have captained an intramural basketball team this winter. His friendliness will be remembered by the faculty and student body of River Falls. Harold G.

KLEINPELL 76e "Predcdeftt The 1949-50 Meletean chronicles student life in one of the most successful periods in the seventy-four year history of the River Falls State Teachers College. As more and more students come to the campus to profit from a reorganized and revitalized curriculum, the opportunities for the college to influence the development of the human resources of Wisconsin hove been immeasurably increased. The academic stature of the college continues to grow. In debate, in music, in athletics, the Falcon soars ever upward. Alumni can well be proud of the accomplishments of the present student body.

It consists of eleven members, seven of which are nominated and elected in May by the student body at large. The remaining four members are the class presidents. This group acts as a representative body to present students needs and desires. The aims of the Student Senate are to promote the best interests of the college and to develop a spirit of cooperation and good fellowship throughout the school. The Senate receives an allotment of the Activity Fund and makes recommendations to the Senate-appointed Social Committee for its disbursement. This Social Committee handles all social events. The editors of the student publications (The Student Voice, Meletean, and Student Directory) are elected by the Senate from nominations made by advisors of these publications.

It wasn't bod enough thot they lost most of the games, but they hod to forfeit those they did win. Evidence produced at a meeting of league coaches showed thot Pot Christie wos ineligible. Officials ruled thot Christie, who attended the University of Minnesota and then transferred to River Foils, wos o Minnesota resident. He hod given St. Croix Foils os his legal residence. This ruling gave Stout a tic for the league crown with LoCrosse and Stevens Point, and it gave the Falcons the conference cellar berth. The '49 squad lackod experience. This is evidenced by their improvement os the seoson progressed. Arnie Feller was benched because of injuries during most of the season and the team not only missed his playing but his drive to spur the team on. Gordie Grilley, Horry Gibbs, Pistol Mul-hollam, Gordie Shock, ond Bob Wilson did not turn out for football this year and Butch McCardle, Woyno Sinncn, Dove Ruhsam, and Dick Swenson hod graduated. With so many members absent from last year's squad, the future did not look encouraging. But the Falcons are o determined lot. After lop sided defeats by St. Olof ond Kansas State, the Falcons started ploying somo football. Thoy lost to White-water, but gave them o gome. Then they turned their thumbs down on Stout to the tune of 12-7. Not being very consistent, the Folcons then bowed to Plotteville ond its aerial attock. The Thirty-eightTom Linehon, End. MOST VALUABLE PLAYER Bill Wisdom, Fullback; Al Eystad, Tackle; Norbert Studelika, Guard. CO-CAPTAINS ELECT FOR 1950 FOOTBALL SQUAD Falcon played their best ball in the Superior and Eou Claire flames and ployed a flood flame of football in the first half of the Homocoming game before falling apart. Captain Gene Cardinal playod perhaps tho best all-around game on the teom. Tom Linohon was voted the most valuable ployer for his running ond pass receiving. At the football banquet Al Eystad, Bill Wisdom, ond "Nibs" Studelsko wore olected co-captoins for next year by their follow squad mombors. DeLong, Cardinal, Siverling, and Fellor ore the only graduating seniors. The 1950 squad should make o good showing with this yeor's experience behind them. RIVER FALLS 0 — ST. OLAF 34 St. Olaf made a grand opening of their football schedule September 17th by overwhelming the visiting Falcons 34-0. The Olos hod a large ond heavy line that ployed hovoc with tho Falcon lino all ofternoon. A speedy bockficld and a fino passing attack proved too much for the Falcons as thoy faltered oorly In tho game. Lack of a passing attack ond some costly fumblos were the main reasons for the poor showing of the Falcons. After touchdowns in the first and second poriods by passos, the Oles ran wild to scoro three times In the third poriod. Cardinal did some fine running for the Falcons. RIVER FALLS 0 — KANSAS STATE 34 The Falcons were hosts to Kansas State Teachers of Pittsburgh, Kansas, in their first home game whon they received their second straight drubbing by the lopsided score of 34-0. The Fokons were really in the gome only in the first half as they drove deep into Gorilla territory twice, but failed to score. The second holf was all K. State os the Falcons managed to get into Gorilla territory only once and that was to the 37-yard line. Amie Feiler and Pat Christie did a whale of o job prior to leaving the gome with injuries. Copf. Cardinal played his expected outstanding running game. RIVER FALLS 6 — WHITEWATER 19 Whitewotor entertained the Falcons on Octobor first for the first conference game for both teams. The Quakers showed power in the first quarter by scoring two touchdowns, and then the Falcons took over on tho offense with the rest of the game being an even affair as to points. River Falls scored its first touchdown of the season as Capt. Gene recoivod a poss from Harkness which took the ball to the three-yard lino. On the next play Cardinal again carried the ball and dove over the Quaker line for a touchdown. His attempt at the point wos no good and the half-time score showed Whitewater ahead 13-6. The Quakers tallied again oorly in tho third quarter on a poss ploy which wos good for 50 yards. This mode the score 19-6, and although the ball changed possession nine times before the game ended, neither teom wos able to score again. RIVER FALLS 12 — STOUT 7 It was "do or die" for tho Falcons whon thoy met Stout ot Ramor Field. Statistics for the gome favored the visitors, but points name the victor and River Foils wos on tho long (Continued on Pago 40) Thlrty-nlno(Continued from Poge 39) end of o 12 7 score. Horkness brought the crowd to its feet on the opening play of the gome with o pass to Christie good for 39 yards. Pat undid his own good work when he fumbled and Stout took over on their own 30. The Falcons took the leod when Dick Alexander blocked o Stout punt and Cardinal recovered it in the end zone for o TD. The kick was wide ond the score was 6-0. Stout tallied o few minutes before tho first half ended on o "once in a lifetime" play. Kieffer fumbled, rocovorod, and ran 16 yards for a Stout score. Young's placeklck was good and the holf ended with Stout aheod 7-6. In the final half both teams put on terrific drives. Tom Linehan picked o Horkness pass from the out-stretched hands of two Stout defenders in o thrilling ploy for the final Falcon tolly late In the fourth quarter. River Falls halted o last minute drive by the Blue Devils to register their first conference win, 12-7. RIVER FALLS 0 — PLATTEVILLE 24 A brilliant passing attack coupled with tho superb pass catching of end Leo Butts govo the Pioneers of Plattoville a 24-0 victory over the Falcons at Romer Field, October 15th. Both ground attacks were equolly potent as both teams amassed 155 yards rushing. The Pioneers completed 10 out of 15 pass attempts compared with four out of 15 for the Falcons. All the touchdowns come via poss plays. None of the attempted conversions wos good. Horkness ond Cardinal handled the Falcon passing, but they were not nearly os effective due to lack of protection by the line. The Falcons threatened to score in tho final quarter when they got os far as the ono-foot lino on one attempt and as far as the one-yard line on onother try. RIVER FALLS 6 — SUPERIOR 9 The Falcons thoroughly out-played the Yeilowjockets at Superior but still lost 9-6. The gome wos ployed under extremely odverse weather conditions, with a driving snow falling in the fourth quarter. Superior scored early in the gome, but picked up only four more first downs during the remainder of the game. Falcons ron the entire field length on Linehan's running, two laterals, ond some down-field blocking only to have the referee rule the ploy otherwise. It resulted in a safety for Superior insteod of o Falcon touchdown. The second holf wos completely domino ted by the Falcons os they smashed through the line and passed for 13 first downs to Superior's one. Bill Wisdom played an outstanding gome crashing through the line for five to ten yards, time after time, ond Horkness threw the wet pigskin with accuracy for needed yordoge. Gene Cardinal threw a 15-yard touchdown poss to Nate DeLong mid-way in the third quarter for the Falcon score. RIVER FALLS 7 — EAU CLAIRE 7 The Falcon ond Blugold elevens matched first quarter touchdowns ond then battled up ond down the gridiron to wind up with a 7-7 tie in Eau Claire's Homecoming event. The Blugolds scored on on 80-yard march the first time they got the ball. Bill Wisdom sparked o Falcon drive which carried the ball to the Blugold 16 where they lost the boll on downs. But Funk fumbled on the first ploy with Linehan recovering. Pat Christio modo it a first down on the four-yard line. Three lino plays foiled to gain; then Horknoss threw a bullet poss over tho centor of the line to Linehan just over the goal line. Cardinal tied the count with a placement. Tight defensive ploy on tho port of both sidos prevented further scoring. Christie, Wisdom and Linehon were the Falcon store. RIVER FALLS 13 — LACROSSE 41 In the onnual Homocoming classic the Falcons found themselves battling o LoCrosse teom that wos riding high in the conference. The first holf saw the Falcons ploy a great gome to leod 7-6, ond it looked os though the Falcons might "Skin de Indions." The gome broke wide open in the third quarter, ond the Falcons soon found themselves two touchdowns behind. Fumbles ond poss interceptions proved costly items for River Foils. A bod punt saw the Indions am it for a TD and seven points to leod 13-7. A long poss to Linehon on the first ploy offer the kick-off tied the score. From then on it wos LoCrosse oil the way os they soon scored two touchdowns. Freshman Jerry Jorgenson gave the local fans a greot running exhibition carrying the boll time ond ogain for good gains. Pat Christie wos declared ineligible because of residence ond his services were definitely missed os the Falcons closed their 1949 Football season. Fortymm Harkness runs itHigh School High Stepper!

With senior Eugene Deist, juniors Manley Fossen ond Jock Peterson, ond freshmon Roger Kuss on the reserve roster, Cooch George Schlogenhouf's FoIcons foced their most rigid seoson this year by playing 31 gomes. The Falcons, however, boost their best season's record, losing in only five contests. The Falcons opened the current seoson with three consecutive conference championships, a record-breaking single gome total of 100 points, ond with their sensational pivot man holding the NAIB Tournament individual scoring record of 56 points, holding the conference individual scoring record of 44 points, averaging 28.8 points in the 47-48 seoson to leod the notion's scorers, ond gathering 72 points to register the third highest single gome totol in the notion's basketball history. What more wos there for the teom to collect in the field of records? But the teom went to work to odd new laurels to River Falls, its college, ond its Falcons. The 1949-50 basketball caIcons swept to their fourth consecutive Wisconsin Teochers College Conference chompionship and their first undefeated conference record. Pre-seoson predictions fovored the Falcons, but also promised stiff competition from Superior, LaCrosse, Stout, ond Milwoukee. The northern schools once again dominated the conference ploy with Milwaukee the chief southern threat. Aftor o somewhot slow start, the Falcons started to roll ond hit their four-yeor scoring pook of 110 points against the Eau Clolre Blugolds in the River Foils gym. This gome also sow Nate break the 45-polnt total he hod set earlier in the seoson against Superior as ho hit the nets for 15 field goals ond 17 free throws for o total of 47 points. It was a fitting dimox for the six seniors who ployed their lost home conference game in the Eau Claire tilt. .This was Note's big year. Everyone knew at the start of the current seoson thot he would breok the notional scoring record of 2199 points held by Jim Locy of Baltimore. Note started the seoson with 1731 points for his three years of recognized competition. He hod ceded 310 points mode during a war year to moke his four-yeor record official. 40 points ogoinst St. Thomas hod whittled the gap down to 26 points, ond the Falcons foced St. John's of Minnesota. Would Nate be able to score the record-breaking bosket? Speculation ran high ond photographers were on hand "just in cose" Note would sink the bosket which would bring his totol to 2200 points. He did it. And he needed only the first half of the gome in which to do it. With just a few seconds remaining in the first half. Note sank the bosket which gave him 27 points for his evening's totol ond 2200 points for his career total. And then King of Morris Harvey in West Virginia come into the race for four-yeor totals. The Associated Press gave Note's 2592 totol the four-yeor record just 56 points oheod of King. King, however, beat Note for the year's scoring honors, but DeLong's 861 points ond o 27.7 overage were good enough to rote him the Notion's No. 2 scorer in totol points ond in overages per gome. The Associated Press also gave Note DeLong honorable mention in its All-Americo poll. River Falls ployed in the Notional Association of Intercollegiate Bosket boll Tournament at Kansos City for the third consecutive year. The Falcons received the Wisconsin district appointment ofter Beloit refused to ploy in a ploy-off gome ond Ripon said it was not interested in the tournament. After bowing out of the toumoment in their first gomes the previous two yeors, the Falcons foced one of the tournament favorites in their first gome. The Falcons accredited themselves With their first toumoment win by up-setting Eastern Illinois, 80-68. But the cowboys from East Central Oklohomo proved too much for our Falcons ond they bowed out of the tourney with a 75-64 defeat ot the hands of the teom which went on to play Indiono Stote in the finals before losing. Combined with DeLong's prolific scoring, the 49-50 squad featured the unconny dribbling ond passing of Benson. Lind-hoim's ability os a tip-in ond rebound artist, the steody gome of Gibbs ot guard ond his long shots, ond the increosed speed ond effectiveness of Chorley Most. Most teamed with Benson to moke o fost break combination which demoralized opposition. Roger Kuss sow oction loter in the seoson, and his work under the boards stomped him as a comer ond on effective man to teom with DeLong. "Bud" Fossen ployed the chief relief man role, toking the floor to give Note needed rest. He left the Falcon line-up ot the completion of the Winter Term to enter baseball training, but finished the seoson with his best ycor's total "Boots" Deiss returned to the Falcon squod to complete his four years on the teom. His drive under the bosket ond deadliness os O free throw artist pioced him os on important reserve. Thus the books close on the college basketball careers of New men Benson, Charles Most, Eugene Deiss, Wolloce Lindhoim, and Note DeLong. Every gome they hove ployed has been one of pressure. Their unselfishness os o teom, their obility to ploy the gome fair, their determination to win, and their record they leave ot River Foils warrants their being colled "Our Famous Falcons." Our thonks ond appreciation go to the 1950 Falcons for mony evenings of entertainment over the post four yeors ond the fome they hove brought to River Foils.

Ninety 3 8 3THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION Director MR. JOHN M. MAY Forty per cent of the vocational agriculture teachers in Wisconsin ore graduates of the River Falls State Teachers College. This is a tribute to the leadership of Mr. John M. May, director of the Deportment of Agricultural Education since 1919. Mr. May received his bachelor's degree at Kansas State. Later he completed his master's degree in Agricultural Education at Cornell and has taken further advanced work at Ohio State in agricultural economics. After teaching here for six years, Mr. May took over the directorship when Mr. W. S. Welles left to take a similar position in the state of Massachusetts. The first four graduates of the four year Smith-Hughes program were graduated in 1928. In oddition to directing the Department of Agriculture, Mr. May is instrumental in finding positions for his graduates, and he serves as adviser of the Collegiate F.F.A. Chapter on the campus. A few of his students who have risen to prominent positions are: Raymond Penn, Director of Agricultural Economics at the University of Wisconsin; Foster Claflin, Director of the Equity Livestock Co-op Association at Milwaukee; Martin Abramson and Albert Johnson in the United States Department of Agriculture.

The River Falls Collegiate Chapter of the Future Farmers of America was organized in 1935. From 1912 to 1935 the chapter was called the Agrifallian Society and was not affiliated with the state or national F.F.A. organization. The purpose of the chapter is to train and develop advisers and leaders for high school F.F.A. organizations, and to promote fellowship for students who are majoring in agriculture. Every year a rural school fair is sponsored. This year 11 schools competed for the prizes offered by the F.F.A. by putting up booths, participating in judging contests, and showing individual exhibits. It is tradition that the F.F.A. provide torches for the snake dance and the bonfire during Homecoming. In addition the F.F.A. sponsors a queen and makes a float for the parade. Highlights of the F.F.A. year were the banquet with Mr. B. F. Rusy, Supervisor of County Agents, as principle speaker, the All-School Talent Show with proceeds going to the Fieldhouse Fund, and the annual picnic held at beautiful Glen Park in May.

Parliamentarian ..... Mr. John M. Moy — Adviser .Clifton Barber One HundredMr. Moy and Mr. Wall examine the field plots. The field plots, directed by Mr. Melvin Wall, have a three-fold purpose. They give the students practical experience and education in adaptability of new crop varieties to this area and methods of experimentation in this field. The results of the experiments are used in computing the official state trials of various crop varieties. Local farmers are given an opportunity to observe the field trials. Approximately three acres have been devoted for six years to these trials. In addition to the field plots a typical Wisconsin dairy farm is maintained by the college. Tentative plans are to install a modern irrigation system which will give students and local farmers on opportunity to observe this modem method of farming in operation.The addition to the Mechanical Arts building completed in 1949 provides ample space for welding, instruction in operation and repair of farm machinery, building hay rocks, swine feeders, ond other types of small farm buildings. In the new modern demonstration room is a hydraulic hoist ond facilities for the projection of movies. New oxo-acteylene and electric arc welders hove been installed. An adequate supply of tools ond wrenches are available for repairing common farm machinery. More modern equipment is being added as space becomes available. The high school expects to open its new shops next fall when the oddition to the high school building is completed. Their shop courses were previously given in the college shops. Outside view of the recently completed shops oddition. One Hundred TwoSeniors practice teaching at the River Falls High School under the direction of Mr. Campbell. Every prospective graduate in the department of agriculture is required to practice teach agriculture in botn the local high school and an outlying high school. This practice teaching is designed to give the student actual teaching experience while under the guidance of qualified’ Vocational Agriculture teachers. For example, Mr. Clyde B. Campbell holds conferences with his practice teachers before ond after each recitation period. The student's practice teaching is divided as follows: one hour period daily teaching farm shops, a one hour period daily for 12 weeks conducting a class in agriculture, and two weeks full-time teoching all four grodes in an outlying high school. During the proctice period at the local high school each student accompanies Mr. Campbell while interviewing a student's parents to set up a satisfactory Supervised Farming Program which is required of all high school F.F.A. members.

The Sovereign Six paced the Saturday League to emerge as its champion. The annual intramural basketball tournament matched teams of the two evening leagues. Excitement and enthusiasm was great. An inspired and determined Club 21 team served notice that it was out to win. The championship game pitted Club 21 with the Local Yokels again. The Locals boasted a 24-15 lead at the half, but Club 21 got hot and whittled the lead to 28-23 at the close of the third quarter. The Local Yokels went on to maintain their lead and win 35-31. This gave the Local Yokels the intramural championship. FINAL STANDINGS, NATIONAL LEAGUE Team Won Lost Pet.
