Senior Class l-listory
We entered the college with sixty-five members and just about half of those
members are going to receive their degrees from Northland. As we look back on
those four years, such years as we shall never again experience, we cannot but
see the improvements reaped from our many mistakes.
Our Freshman year proved that We had what it takes to get along. With Bob
Borst as president we took the flag rush and started out our career in great spirit.
That same year we showed our talents at Homecoming, on Freshman Day, and
with our fine Freshman Dance. l
Qur Sophomore year was even bigger and better. With Arthur Makholm
as president we took honors in all activities, won the flag rush, sent many a Fresh-
man on a long hike and placed many of the class on the football field and basket-
ball floor. Other members were prominent in Choir and campus groups.
As luniors we continued our activities in a more or less dignified way and
published an excellent Wedge, with lames Warren as editor and Edward Mc-
Groarty as business manager. Many of the members formed a nucleus for campus
affairs. With Bud Makholm as president a very good Ivy Day was given the
Now as Seniors We look forward and face the future, confident that we will
do our best and live up to all that the college, our alma mater, expects of us. So
electing lames Warren as president the last year We hope to present an excellent
program on Senior Day before we leave this college which has become a part
of each of us.
We leave to those who enter college the freshness and enthusiasm with
which we enter the world.

lunior Class l-listory
ln September of 1936, one of the largest groups of Freshmen in Northland's
history matriculated with the institution. lack Glidden was chosen to lead his
classmates through that hectic first year of college life. ln class rivalry, we were
not quite able to cope with our superiors, the Sophs.We did, however, distinguish
ourselves in presenting an excellent student life and Freshman dance. We added
to our laurels by becoming active in extra-curricular activities.
The next year found most of us back as Sophs seeking revenge for our de-
feats in class rivalry the year before. We were soon organized with the same
class officers, headed by lack Glidden. We distinguished ourselves as the su-
periors of the Frosh in all our interclass battles. Again the members of the class
participated in all the campus organizations and clubs.
This year, with lack Glidden as our president, we are closing another very
successful year. Assuming the role of sedate luniors has made us look upon
interclass rivalry as a thing of the past. As proof that we are now able to accom-
plish greater feats, we present this Wedge to be a memento of the year l938-39.
This has been a great task but we think it has been ably done with Lois Barthol-
omew as editor-in-chief and lack Glidden as business manager. We hope to
close our year's activities with a commendable lunior lvy Day program.
Next year will bring the climax of our college careers, and we hope that
our achievements will make us deserving of that lofty title, Seniors.

Sophomore Class History
Qur numbers reduced from 72 to 47, the better half of the valiant class of '41
remains to leave its mark in Northland's hall of fame. From Danny Slick We
turned to Ray Reiber for vindication of last year's defeats in . . . Well, defeats.
We not only Won the flag rush, but gained an unusual reputation as ton-
sorial artists, using the more hirsute members of the frosh class as models. The
tug-of-War is history itself, and We proved ourselves superior in other sports
when We Won the interclass basketball tournament.
Last but not least, We persuaded Paul Bunyan, who is a member of our class,
to bring Babe the Blue OX down from Alaska Where he has been pulling the
fish to our side of the fishing zone.

Freshman Class History
Make way, you upperclassmen! Here comes the class of '42, full of pep and
rarin' to show you some real stuff.
We entered Northland last tall as a bunch ot "treshies," but we soon entered into
the swing ot things and showed that we meant business. We were ready tor the "give-
and-take" ot college life, and we believe, with some pride, that we have given more
than we have taken. We began the year with 80 enrolled and organized immediately.
The following otticers were elected to guide us through this tirst year: President,
Edward Christenseng vice president, Bob Millerg secretary-treasurer, Frank Balcom.
l'Freshman haircuts" were given out quite treely this year by the sophomores,
but we gave them a full quota of haircuts and "rides" in retaliation. We lost the Flag
Rush, but We are looking forward with great anticipation to the tug-ot-war, at which
time we expect to triumph over the sophs.
A considerable number of our men were out tor football, and they seem to be
very good prospects tor the future. There hasn't been so much interest in basketball,
and nearly all our prospects are inexperienced as yet, but we are developing a team
which should go places. The class is exceptionally well represented in the choir, and
several members are active in the Student Lite statt, while still others are doing splen-
didly on the debate squad.
We have been a little slow in organizing, but we are oft to a good start now, with
members in every college activity, and, during the next three years, we expect to do
great things in the typical Northland manner.

The Alpha Sigma Sorority, founded in l9l8 as the Alethean Society, is the
oldest society on the campus. Throughout the years, the sorority has been very
active, and the members of the society have participated wholeheartedly in the
various campus activities.
The activities this year, as in the past, have been numerous and varied. Une
of the first events of the year was the Alpha-Gamma Tea for the new women on
the campus. The purpose of the tea was to enable the freshmen and upperclass-
men to become better acguainted.
Advantage was taken of the lovely tall weather on two occasions. Une was
a hike up the creek for a picnic lunchg the other was a Saturday afternoon out-
ing at the Brownell cottage. A '

for the alumni who returned for the occasion, and had a float in the Homecom-
Two very enthusiastically received rush parties were given during the rush
season. The first of these was a 'lgay nineties" party held in Memorial Hall com-
mons. The girls came dressed as men and belles of the nineties, and the evening
was spent in activities similar to those indulged in by people living at that time.
The second was the annual Alpha-Phi dinner dance, which was given this year
at the Elks Club. An impressive formal initiation was held on February twenty-
seventh in Memorial Hall parlor. Ten girls were received into the Alpha Sigma
The Alpha Sigma Sorority has carried on many projects throughout the
year. Gne of the most conspicious of these is the candy store which is maintained
in Wheeler Hall. A very well-received masquerade dance was sponsored by the
society during the month of February.
Throughout the year, the programs for the bi-weekly meetings have been
varied and interesting. Cne of the earliest meetings was a Halloween party given
at the Gemme's home. The society was entertained, at another meeting, at the
Buckland's. Cine meeting was held in the Woods Hall gym. Most of the evening
was spent in folk dancing. At other meetings, the programs consisted of book
reviews and musical numbers by various members of the society.

Gamma Nu Omega has been a leading social and study organization on
Northland's campus since l924. A small group, the sorority has always care-
fully selected members who would work harmoniously and efficiently together.
Under the leadership of Mae Louise Adams the Gammas had a full and
active year. Opening the fall season with a party for the Alumni, they quickly
followed it with a rummage sale, a chapel program and a lovely Thanksgiving
Ball at the Guild l-lall. With the Alpha Sigmas they were hostesses at the Home-
During rush season the Grammas gave a sleigh ride and cottage party. Ten
girls were pledged. For the following month they wore caps with bells which
added a lively note to campus activities.
At the beginning of the second semester the pledges were formally initiated.
Meetings were enlivened with discussions of books, travel, and parliamentary
law. Spring brought a new surge of activity. The girls played basketball and
badminton, gave an informal party for the members who had been on choir tour,
sponsored amovie, and then packed off for their annual cottage party on the lake.
Gamma Nu Omega closed its eventful year with a banquet at the Knight
Hotel which was attended by actives and alumni. Members look forward to an
equally successful season next year.

The Philalethean Fraternity, the oldest men's society and the most active
on the campus, has contributed and continues to contribute greatly to the social
life of the college.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the fraternity and, during these
past twenty years, many of its activities have become traditional. The Annual Phi
Formal, Phi Outing and the Annual Post Mortem have become such a part of
our college life that they are looked forward to each year with great enthusiasm
by both matriculating students and alumni.
t'Bigger and better than ever" was the motto for the Phi Formal this year
and "bigger and better than ever" it was. Once again the Phis undertook the
l-lerculean task of extensively decorating the Dodd Gymnasium under the direc-
tion of Mr. Zak, the bare gymnasium was transformed into the deck of an ocean
liner anchored among the South Sea Islands. Students, Alumni, and townspeople
alike are already looking forward to next year's Phi Formal.
The Annual Post Mortem was a great success. lt was enthusiastically sup-
ported and was attended by a majority of the Northland students. This like the
Phi Formal is becoming more and more a traditional part of the Northland
Bud Makholm was president of the fraternity the first semester and lack
Glidden acted in the same capacity during the second. Placing the emphasis on
quality not quantity, the Phis initiated only ten new members. The membership
of the fraternity, however, remains at thirty-six.

Under the conviction that the purpose of a Greek
Letter society at Northland College should be to pro-
vide Worthwhile entertainment and interesting in-
struction as Well as social activity tor its members
and the student body, the tive members Who returned
to school last tall decided to reorganize. They Wrote
a new constitution embodying their ideas and began
a program ot meetings which were more than the
gathering ot a fraternal gang. During the rush sea-
son, letters were sent out explaining the purpose ot
the fraternity and tour independents, Tuniors and
Sophomores, liked the idea Well enough to pledge
and then join Theta Pi.
There are no Seniors in the Fraternity this year,
and the members all expect to return next year.

The school year of 1938-39 can well be remembered by all as the banner
year for Beta,Chi. Under the able direction of their Grand Arcon, Ward Vining,
the rush season of the fraternity and all other enterprises were very successful.
The Betas opened the season by selling "hot dogs" at the football games. Twenty
men were pledged this year, and initiated immediately after the first semester.
Mr. R. B. Achilles, Superintendent of Printing, was made an honorary member
of Beta Chi. Mr. Achilles has a great deal of interest in young p'eople, and his
addition to the ranks has added stability to the group.
The innovation of the Beta Carnival proved so successful that it has been
decided to make it an annual affair. The carnival consisted of boxing and wres-
tling matches followed,by an informal dance. I
The Betas were declared basketball champs again this year after winning
two out of three games from the Phis. The fraternity had two teams this year, one
composed of freshmen and the other of old members. The Betas also took the
float prize at the homecoming parade with their hillbilly regalia. The chapel
program put on by the Betas also proved very popular. A solo by Clifford "Mis-
souri" Hosselton, music by the Hillbillies, and a short dialogue by Charley
McCarthy and Edgar Bergen filled the chapel with laughter.
In retrospect, Beta Chi must view the past year as one of its most successful.
The membership of the organization was increased by an unusually large number
of pledges, Beta men are to be found in many of the responsible positions on the
campus, and enterprises have met with success. All in all, Beta Chi looks forward
to next year with confidence.

morial Hall girls have selected a house senate to
preside over the dormitory government. This chosen
group acts under the authority of the Dean of Women
and the Dean ot the College. With Virginia Hughes
as President, their chief activity this year has been to
draw up a new constitution for more satisfactory
management. The tour classes were represented by
lohanna Hattstaedt, Claudia Vining, Betty Weimers,
and Dorothy Thompson.
The boys' dormitories have similar means ot

Northland opened its season in convincing style by grinding out a decisive victory
of 25-7 over a rugged Virginia lunior College team. A touchdown in each quarter pro-
vided a wide margin of victory. Ed McCfroarty, lack Glidden, and Dick Mattrella did the
scoring while Vic, Nag, and Pudd led the tight defense that sguelched Virginia. Mis-
understanding on a whistle gave Virginia a gift seven points.
A trip to River Falls brought disaster, but it was not without its good bits. Against a
team with unlimited reserves on their home field, Northland put up a game fight down to
the last second. The scrappy bunch of Northlanders were headed goalward when the
final whistle sounded. Mac's punts kept the enemy back many times, but they punched
over a touchdown in each of the first three quarters, and crept up to a l9-13 deficit, but
could not manage to erase those last six points.
Reversing a l9-3 defeat sustained in Houghton last year, Northland returned home
to smash out a clean 14-O victory. A pair of long gainers, the first by Vernetti in the
second quarter, and the second by Mattrella in the last canto provided the pointers in
as hard a game that could be found anywhere.
In marked contrast to last year, Northland dynamited her Homecoming foe com-
pletely off the field to the delightful tune of 19-O. Leading the assault were Fred Vernetti
with two touchdowns to his credit, and Ed McGroarty with some tremendous booting
and hard smashing. lt could be .truly said that it was a rock-ribbed defense the way
Northern State runners bounced back without a gain. Many former students thrilled at
the superior type of play shown and felt more than repaid for their efforts in "coming
The long trip from Ashland to Oshkosh must have had some effect on our boys that
evening for, after starting off like a house afire, they got a couple of bad breaks and did
not have that extra touch to nullify them. The old fight was still there, but something was
lacking and Cshkosh managed to score a seemingly one-sided victory. However, the
first downs were about even and our passing clicked 80721 of the time. Perhaps there is
something in the 75 yards we were assessed in penalties. As though to add insult to in-
jury, the boys had to shovel most of the way home through deep snow, spending 21 hours
to go 260 miles.
With amazing recuperative powers, Northland shook off the tiring and dishearten-
ing effects of the disastrous Oshkosh trip and battered Eveleth lunior College to bits a
week later. The first half didn't indicate that much could be expected, but at the start of
the third quarter Dean Crowell and the ever starring Ed McCfroarty led the team in a
wild burst of power down the field and across the goal line. Finding the dish to their lik-
ing, they took off again and again to build up a terrific lead and completely vanquished
the foe. lt was a fitting climax to the careers of McGroarty, Arthur Ellis Makholm, tackle,
and Vic Ponto, guard.

his name will never be forgotten in North-
land's football annals. ,
VICTOR PONTO Guard
A ferocious tackler and a barrel of
dynamite, Vic could always be depended
upon for everything he had. Relentless and
punishing was his type of play. lt is with
greatest regret that we must say farewell
to this faithful plugger.

smoothest carriers. Sweeps and laterals
carried him many yards. Each game found
him better and his stellar performance
against Eveleth will shine for years.
RAY REIBER Tackle
Began the season with no previous
experience and emerged with the appear-
ance of an All-American. He is ideal in size
and temperament. Mark him for the out-
standing tackle of the next two years.

Northland's basketball team this year had what might be con-
sidered its most successful season. lt had what appeared to be the
wholehearted support oi the student body and many townsrnen
whether winning or losing.
The sguad was hampered by a lack oi height which, it seemed,
they tried to offset by hard fast play. The result was a thriller each
and every game.
Tweet lensen and Vernon Baatz who joined the sguad at the
beginning ot the second semester strengthened the team consider-
ably, adding height and ability.
Although the results of the season's play, six losses against tive
wins, may not look so good, it does not express the spirit of the team
nor the thrilling games played.
Through graduation and dropping ot school work, Northland
lost McGroarty, Czerwinski, Crowell, Shemunatz, lensen, Paris, and
Baatz, so that next year's team will see Ken l-loyer as the only regu-
lar player returning. However, French, Williams, lohnson, To-
menendale, Staponkus, and Thorpe will be back as men with one
or more years training for college basketball.

From the hinterland came the Blue OX, received and resurrected for the
first time since 1936 by the Sophomore Class. 1
While Babe stamped about vigorously his philosophical mutterings were
carefully taken down by editors Virginia Hughes, Martha Bobb, and Arthur
l-leglund. Unfortunately, some ot Babe's opinions were not Wild enough and
some ot the charm ot his usual personality was dimmed.
But Babe will return again next year it he only has a place to lie down. ln
1936 the Blue OX sat down between Woods and Fenenga, making Kendrigan

Since 1935, when Professor Kinne revived debate as a major college ac
tivity, Northland has enjoyed many successful seasons and many versatile well
informed teams. This year, under the leadership of Professor Davies Northland
had another very successful season.
The team was small but it ably and effectively carried out a heavy schedule
A series of debates were undertaken on a visiting and home basis between
Northland teams and squads from I-libbing, Virginia, Itasca and Eveleth l C
Although these debates were non-decision affairs, Northland more than held her
own against the enemy debaters.
Plans were made for Northland to attend the Eau Claire and St Paul tourna
ments but snow storms and bad roads made both impossible. Yet despite these
unfortunate setbacks, Northland considers this year's debate season a very suc
cessful one. The hi-light of the season was a debate between the Northland men s
affirmative team and the Virginia T. C. girls' negative team before the Monday
Women's Club. The question debated was: "Resolved, that the United States
should cease to use public funds Cincluding creditj for the purpose of stimulating
The members of the sguad were: George Bittner, Bud Makholm Roy Miller
Stanley Shemunatz, Claudia Vining, and Virginia Hughes.

shop, under the direc- J
tion of Mr. R. B. Achilles, V
does all the printing for , rs Ay -yf
the Northern Light, Stu- fd CT F
dent Life, Blue Ox, and
the Choir publications
in addition to all types of
job work for the college
and for many business
establishments and or-
ganizations outside of the school.
The print shop affords students an opportunity of learning the trade and at the
same time helps them to pay their college expenses. The shop furnishes regular em-
ployment to about ten students while extra help is added during rush periods, thus
furnishing employment to additional students throughout the school year.
One of the most progressive enterprises on the campus for the employment of
student labor is the craft shop. Each year, new improvements have been added to
this department which have made its finished products more unusual. The fine etch-
ing of Northern scenes on copper pieces has produced great demand for these
articles in distant markets.
The Christmas sea-
son gave this group a
splendid opportunity to
display their skill in the
production of wreaths
for which there was a
great sale. Under the
capable leadership of
Mrs. Brownell who is
ably assisted by Louis
Kolonko, the craft shop
has produced many clev-
er and valuable articles.

Professor Sigvart I. Steen has devoted his time diligently to the leadership of
Northland's music department. He has displayed superior technique in molding a
choir and band of which Northland can be duly proud. Under his capable direction,
these organizations have received distinguished praise from most critical audiences.
This year's choir of sixty members has experienced a very enjoyable and
After working diligently for many months, the choir departed for one of its
most successful tours. The group left Ashland by train on March 19 and arrived
in New York City March 21. 1t was their unique privilege to participate in the
opening of the Wor1d's Fair ceremonies. Concerts were given extensively in New
England. The climax of the tour was the home concert at Dodd Gymnasium on
April 16. A large and appreciative crowd greeted the choir in its homecoming
Kathlyn 1oanis received favorable comments in the capacity of soprano
so1oist. Much credit for the successful tour was due to the inspiring leadership
of Mr. Steen and the efficient management of Mr. Kildahl.
A recent addition to the music department is the band. Its personnelis
almost identical with that of the choir. lt has, therefore, fine talent, and during
its brief existence has become a worthy asset in this department.
The Pep Band was a splendid feature which appeared for the first time this
year at the basketball games. The snappy music of this organization lent much
enthusiasm at the games.

J AM the builder of castle and hall,
And I lay the stone in the temple wall,
I lay the stone and I raise the tower,
And mine is the glory of strength and power
For I am the builder,
Oh hear me sing
The song of the sledge as its echoes ring!
I am the builder, who walks with me,
The glories ot cities upraised shall see,
And the towers that rise
To the arch ot the skies,
For I am the builder, come walk with me!
I am the builder ot forest and glade,
I am the hand that has hewn and made
The peak of the mountain,
Tig: " The caves of the seag
' I am the maker of worlds that be,
Yes, I am the builder ot suns and seas,
T' ' "'l 'I The master ot human destinies.
I am the builder, who walks with me,
The glory ot souls risen up shall see,
And I build with the soul
That is clean and whole,
For I am the builder, come walk with mel
We sincerely hope that during your years at Northland College
you have learned to be builders.

Mark Twain once said, "When I was a boy ot I4 my father was so igno-
rant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I was l8, I
was astonished to know how much he had learned in 4 years."
Father has much useful knowledge gained from hard experience. When
he says, "start a bank account as soon as you can," do it! It will please him
immensely. I y

TI-IE OUTLOOK FOR YOUTI-I
There is a tendency on the part of today's young people to view the
future with alarm.
Yet the outlook is bright. Great new industries loom on the horizon. From
the test tubes of science, and the laboratories of industry, a steady stream of
discoveries, inventions, and improvements points the way to a new era ot in-
dustrial advancement. Youth has every reason to look ahead with confidence.
The progressive young mind will readily see the value ot a banking
connection early in the income years.
