AtliiiiiiiMi rat Mill Building Stranger that I was on the canii)us, nn- (ier the amiable guidance of Bingo, tlie Bearcat, I managed to get a cross-section of student life at tlie Nortliwest Missouri State Teachers College — ambitious stu- dents who often give in to gaiety, I found. It was almost 8 o ' clock and Bingo was still sleepy, but sulliciently alert to read aloud, with feeling, the bold carving above liie door of [hv adniinistralion building: " And the Truth Shall Make You Free, " adding majestically, " That phrase has been an inspiration to students here for thirty-five years. " We watched the sliulenls pour in for their iS o ' clocks. We ent in, too, and be- fore I knew it I was in the swing of college life. The halls of science beckoned us first. We looked in to see the biology students industriously poking around at their help- less victims. " Clams, " annoimced Bingo, looking over somebody ' s shoulder, " Clams that have nobly li ed and nobly died for science. I ' or tiie next lesson they will prob- ably progress to frogs. " Though it was early yet, the girls in Uu home economics department were already busy (Irai)ing matei ' ial on Iheir dress forms. [10 1 Lsi1mr»t4irioN Biology students pry into their specimen clams.

Ignoring us. tlie home I ' conomics girls con- tinued to level ofl ' cui)fuis of this and spoonfuls of that, an i as far as we e er knew tlu ' ir culinary efforts for the day were highlv successfid. Next we found future agriculturists pouring U]) (hll ' erent kinds of soils for close scrutiny. " It wouldn ' t surprise v in the least. " " said Uingo to me. " if liiey knew exactly how many husheis to liie acre this soil or that woidd yield and why.

" Something more you must see. " he con- tinued. " It ' s on second floor, but strangely enough we remain on third floor to see it. " Easter Assembly — the Chorus sings Handel ' s " Messiah. " [13] Ho was ri ' fcrriii, fo tlic i)r()jcction room, from wliich llic auditorium htlow (.-ould be sfi ' ii through tin- openings used for the showing of fihiis. The audi- torium recently was redecorated, I was told, and we got the full effect of its harmonious creams and tans from our u|)stairs ie v])oint. On the way down to first floor (Bingo was thirsting for a coke and had me headed for the bookstore) we heard the frantic clickcty-clack of fy])ewriters emitting from a room tiiat was labeled " Xort Invest Missourian. " " Student iditors and reporters are in there, " explained Bingo. " They cover the campus — and no sooner is the ink dry on one issue of tlie paper than tliey start on another. " Cokes and studies mix well in the bookstore, apparently. When Bingo and I walked in, the tables were all full, the whole place resounding with youth-let- ouf-of-class. Endless coke-sipping, cof- fee-drinking, casual note-reviewing, vis- iting and general relaxation contribute to the magnetic atmosphere. " It ' s like pulling eyeteeth to get them out of hen ' at closing time, " laughed Bingo. Norttiwest Missourian editors cover the campus. Bookstore cokes and coffee aid concentration. Dave Murphy prepares to drive the new station wagon to town. [14] No fair looking at the keyboard. A fine arts class in session. Suddenly the 1x11 rang, and almost as siukknly a new shift took ovei " the book- store. Most of those who had been there when we first went in now dutifully left to attend classes. We gave the new class period time to get under way and then set out on another lap of our visiting tour. AYe stopped in to see fledgling typists who were serious about learning to type " without looking. " Leaving the commerce department, which is down the hall from the bookstore. Bingo suggested a trip to the art dejiart- ment. " A wonderful way to take olf a few |)()un(ls, ' " lie said, " is to enroll in an art course. " The reason, apparently, is that the art department is on the fourth tloor. We were putting and panting by the liim we arrived. While Miss DeLuce was holding the at- tention of a group in the front of the room, other art students were in the rear of the room drawing and painting. Interesting examples of artwork done by the students were hanging around the walls of the de- ]iartnient. " You can always find some kind of in- teresting art exhibit out in the hall next to the classroom, " Bingo informed me. " Peo- ])le who don ' t know a thing about art come u]) here, take a course in it. and the next thing they know they ' re watching for such exhibits and wanting to know when there will be a new one. " That ' s one nice tiling about college, " Hingo suddenly became philosophical, " it makes students discover new things to en- joy — things tluy otherwise might have considered stully and too niucli biyond Ihcm. " [15] ■ fck 1 P F- g ii mi tf A rare, quiet moment in the student center- Changing books for the next class. We wore ready for more relaxation after our strenuous trip to llie art ciepart- nunl. and Bingo knew just wliere to go. " Have you heard of our student center? " hv in([uired, as we eanie back to the first floor. This, I soon found, is something of an annex to the bookstore. Many students who seek a few minutes of i-est between classes come to the student centtr. . spe- cial committee is delegated to supervise the rooms and select hosts and hostesses lor it. Hingo told me. Several students were groupi ' d around Ihe desk at tlie entrance of the sludint cen- ter when we walked in. I ' our l)oys were ])laying i)ing-j)ong in an adjoining room. In Ihe otf.er room that comprises the cen- ter, students were scattere i around on tlie lounges and benciies enviably carefree — gossiping, sleeping, loafing, and a few were actually trying to study, though that is considered extremely out of place. There are study rooms on tlie second and third floor, too. hut the student ctnler is the most popular place for between-class gatherings. These students seemed to nie to liave thi ' knack of comi)ining work witli l)lay in a most satisfactory manner. " Meet me at my lockir. " is a familiar l)l:rase -and many students do liasty chal- ting at tiieir lockers, when tiicy don ' t use tlie hookst ire or tlie student centir. [16] " Mniiy a proljlcm of slalc iialioiial or intcnialioiial impoiiaiu-t ' is discaisscd. ai-- i iu ' d and i ' ( ' iiliially solved in llio sinoi rr. " said ISiiigo. as r walked lo ii the ha!! Iivin; to deeide what we wanted to do next. Vi ' I lied to see wlio was inchdgini in tins ])oi)ular i)aslime. hut onr eyes eouid not penetrate tile liaze of hiue sniolve tliai !io -ere(l ai)oul llie entrance. Bingo |)ulled out Ins wateli and looivcd at it (|uic ' icly. " Ifs nearly luneli liin ' ! " he e. clainied. " Let ' s be on our way so we can he lirst in line at Residence Hall. " From the ini|)lieation I gathered that Residence Mall is no i)laee for weaklings during the luneii iiour. " We won ' t slay after lunch, " my Bearcat guide went on, " bu t we ' ll come back later and you ' ll hear all about the place. You sliould know more about life at Residence Hall, better known as the dorm. " On the wav over, 1 noticed the clothes Studying an original painting in the College collection. the girls bat around in on the campus, and came to th(- conclusion that college girls today are unusually sensible and their scn- sibleness brings out their charm. For in- stance, nearly all of them wore tiieir low- heeled shoes, anklets, skirts, sweaters and neat little collars, but strangely enough they ' ve lost no individuality. Informality is the keynote and they bear it out in every respect — including their well-brushed, cas- uallv curled hair. The camera pierces the blue haze in the smoker. [17 liiiliistrial Arts §liop Immediately after lunch. Bingo took me to the industrial arts shop to look in on the various classes there. I was rather doubtful as to the advisability of entering this building because I could hear hor- rible grinding and screeching noises is- suing forth. He hastened to assure me, however, that the noises indicated there were many interesting things being ac- complished within those brick walls. He spoke proudly of the extensive ad- ditions to the tools and supplies in both the metal and woodworking shops this year. So many young men were seeking training for defense industries that the enrollment increast ' d considerably, he said. We saw first a serious group of high school boys taught by Harry Darr and Jewel Myers. Drafting seemed to have their attention. In an adjoining room was a class of college girls doing complicated liaudwork with Miss Fisher looking ou. Most of tile noises were coming from tiie woodworking and metal shops on the ni;iiii floor. " We gazed admiringly at the students — for the most part industrial arts majors and minors — as they operated difficult pre- cision machines. " They ' ll soon be applying wliat they are learning now. " predicted Bingo. THE INSTRUCTORS D. N.

B « - e The Lilirsii ' v As we left the industrial arts building. Bingo thought it wouhl be well to go to the library and eheck out a book. As he observed, it always pays to do one ' s out- side reading some time before class. In the basement of the library, so to speak, was " The Tower " room. I was in- formed that this room luul witnessed many frenzied moments tlirougiioul the year. There tlie layouts for the i)ook were niade. the eo])y written, tlie Scoop Dance l)lans were discussed, and one cohl. win- try niglit " The Tower " (|ueen caniUdates were selected at a secret meeting. Quiet, please! Checking out books. " We students believe that we ha e one of tile most beautiful college libraiies in Missouri. " said Bingo. " We admire the front entrance very much. " He usl ' .ered me into the resei ' ve i-ead- ing I ' oom on the main floor and then he took me upstairs where we saw studi ' uts :it the main desk. |)robably collecting ma- terial lor a term pa])er. In the large read- ing room was ()h-oh! — Mr. Wells. Ill ' s the gentleman who enforces tlie rule that tile library is not a place to develop the art of conversation. The large reading room seats ' M)U per- sons, according to my companion, and carrels in the stack rooms provide space lor individual study for faculty and u])- perclassmen who want to be alone. " Pardon additional statistics, " whis- pered Bingo, looking askance at Mr. Wells, " but the library now has approxi- mately 30,000 volumes. " [2o: To iniijrc ' ss me witli the iiiipoilaiu ' c of physical ediicittion. liin o look inc lo llic gyniiKisiimi.

Tlu ' liealth olTice upstairs was our next stop. The College physician. Dr. ¥. R. Anthony, was treating a student for some minor ailment, assisted by two students. Wayland Thatch and Martha Miner. Without waiting for them to lind any- thing wrong with us, A e went back down- stairs. " Thanks to the College swinmiing ])o()l. winter weather does not force the stu- dents to relinquish one of their favorite sports. " said Bingo, opening the door so that I could see the " aqua-(|ueens " ])er- forming. In addition to the boys " and girls " gym classes which meet every day, the build- ing also contains classrooms for the va- 4]iviuiisi$$iuiii rious physical education and coaching theory courses. In the words of my erudite guide. " This building provi des a complete, ethcieni i)hysical education plant. " Say " Ah! " AH set for a splash. [21 ] Horat e Maim Laboratorv Sc liool We bclield next the Horace Mann labo- ratory scliool, one of the newest build- ings on the campus. " Soon I will be among these student teachers, " mused the Bearcat. " It will be a pleasure, though, to work in this beautiful building with all the conveniences modern education de- mands. " AN ' e watched the nursery, kindergarten and primary children until we smelted enticing odors coming from the second grade room. By following our noses, we came to a sign that read, " Yum! We Bake today, " and there we were at the second grade bakery. Not only were the second graders shoving cup cakes into the oven hand over fist, but pastries already baked were being iced and sold right there at a te rrihc pace. On the same floor we isite(l all tlu other eU ' ini ' ntary grades, then moved on upstairs where junior and senior high school students hold their classes. AW walked in on a home economics labora- tory, (piielly (lisru])ted a study hall and looked in on various classrooms where student teachers were leading discussions like %eterans. " Many of these Horace Mann high school students who will graduate this spring will enroll for College this fall, " Bingo commented. " It ' s tiiat way every year. " A quiet conference between Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Dicterich. Young America at work. A high school economics class studies the diet. A high school study hall. Business is rushing at the second grade bakery. [23] Horace Mann laboratory school (fore- ground) and the gymnasium. They take the children to school and home again. Tlic school has its own gynintisiuni and aiuUtoriuni. In the auditoriinn, besides tlic Horace Mann student assemblies, many Col- lege entertainments are held, according to my Bearcat guide. These include all recitals by the conservatory of music, the annual February lecture series presented by the College faculty, the weekly Sunday Morn- ing Hour, and such entertainments as the .lanuary comedy readings. Enlarging on the latter, Bingo explained Ilia I each Thursday afternoon in Januaiy a member of the faculty read a famous comedy of Jiis or her own choosing. Students, faculty members and many townsijeopie ntlcnckd these readings. The Horace Mann laboratoi ' y school is under the direction of Mr. M. C. Cunning- ham. Mr. H. R. Dieterich is principal of the high school. These two men diiect the work of the various room teachers wiio. in turn, guide the student teachers. Mr. Dieterich looks down the gym walk. [241 The Qiiatl " WliiU- we ' re on this side of the eain- pus we will sto]) in ;it the Quad — this group of buildings arranged in the form of a quadrangle, " saiti Bingo. " There are still three more buildings to be eonstrueted. This one on the nortli i:; the dining hall. Tiie other three are (lorinitories. eaeh of wiiieh liouses tliirty men. " We looked in. All was serene and the food in prei)aration smelted appetizing. " These X. Y. . . boys who make u|) the Resident Training Project receive tiain- ing in industrial arts, woodworking metal working and drafting, and aiijily Dinner time at the Quad. A typical ' bu!r ' session. their knowledge to actual building on the campus, " Bingo was explaining aswe looked around. He added that many of them have obtained responsible jjositions in defense industries as a result of their training. [25] Resiili iiee Hall Now I know why girls like life at the l()rmitory! Bingo acquainted me witli a few of tlie customs, which account for the fun that goes on there. I learned that girls who ])lan to be gone after 6 o ' clock in the evening must alwaj ' s sign out at the desk. That smiling person who rings the buzzer is a " desk girl. " She answers phones (.just try getting that line at noon or any time in the evening after dinner!), buzzes tiiose who are wanted, and more or less attempts to control gi ' U- eral behavior in the hall. Tliere are live others in tier capacity. Girls who don ' t sign out can always iind plenty of amusement. Every evening after dinner they roll up the rugs and dance. Others form congregations in various rooms. Food sent by considerate mothers is always welcome at tiiese gatherings, and greatly accelerates the popularity of the person to whom the food was sent. The dinner hour is leisurely and restful, in contrast to the mad dash for trays at lunch time. " Yes, dorm lift- is wonderful! " one girl told us. " II is something winch I will treasure for years. I ' ve made friends ril never forget. " [28] Hingo, f ' iimiliar wilii llic life of a Rcsi- house director no douhl longs for one.

From the (loriiiitorv, liiiigo pointed out an cxct ' lknt view of the President ' s brick home, located on lovely sjiacious grounds, where many social afll ' airs arc held throughout the year for both students and faculty. A sliorl (Hsfance from RcsicU ' nce Hall is the Home Maiiagenuiit house. We took a closer inspection. In tliis inunaculate lioiise, wiiicli is (tliiieiilly managed by Miss June Cozine of tiie iiome economics de])arlment, six girls live for an entire ([uarler and ])ractice wliat they learn in the classroom. These honu ' economics majors taki ' turns cooking, manipulating the budget, planning the menus and keei)ing the house clean, so that each girl has a well-rounded experience ' at the end of the quarter. We foiuul Miss Cozine and four of the gii ' ls enjoying a few k ' isure moments in their comfortable reading room. Ap- parently the dishes were done. Much has been added in furnishings since the house was established three years ago, and now it seems so much like home that the girls hate to leave hen their required training is completed. They take pride in the appearance of the house, as unexpected callers will note. It ' s home-like at the Home Management house. [28] " Lofs t:ikr niiotlur v;ilk. ns I would like I ' or vt)ii to siH ' one of tlu ' mcisl pii .cd land- marks on llu ' i-;mi|)us llic luslic- lnidi ( ' . " suggested Hiiigo. If was a jjietly scene. Tlie snow had cluug snidolldy to one side of llu ' l)ridgt ' like n eoal of paint, " riu ' bridge is also lovely in spring and sunnner wlun the vines are grei ' n, " Hingo added. We went from the bridge baek to tlu ' long walk. Hundreds of students every year promenade up and down this walk from September to August. I admired the trees and shridis that border tlu- walk, making an impressive long-range view from either end. N ' e stopped to look at the five slim new birch trees which Bingo said were set out early this year in the exact places of tlie ones that died. The birdies had been a landmark on the grounds long before the The rustic bridge. College was built. These beautiful trees were painted by students of art clas.ses; they were written about in poetry and prose by members of the Writers " Club and the stati ' of the College paper; they were beloved of faculty, students and alumni. Up the long walk. [29- ■f0 ' t - -X fl Registration day. Signing for " The Tower. " My foofsteps were be,qinnini to lag be- liiiul Hiose of this fuii-loviiig Bearcat. " What else goes on here? " I gasped, hoping for a time-out to regain lost energy, but he insisted on my hearing all about registration day. " Tlu ' y have the whole procedure so well organized that you ' d hardly recog- nize it as registration day, " he continued enthusiastically, " And with students as- signed to special advisers, they can ' t lu ' lp getting otl ' on the right foot. " According to Bingo, when a studiiit has enrolled he begins to look forward to the coming of " The Tower " the yearbook published by the junior class. Though " The Tower " is in its embryonic stages at this time, a table is placed in the hall where students go to make ap- |)()intmenls for their photographs. Bingo ])ut in a few words about teach- ers meeting which was held, as always, in the fall. Between sessions, former students gathered in the familiar halls of tile administration building to renew old acquaintances. Alexander Kerensky, former premier of Russia, was the most prominent speaker this year, exulted Bingo. " W ' c rallii ' d to the cause of democ- lacy and rvcryhodii purchased defense stamps, " he resumed. " It wasn ' t long until our institution was 100 per cent. " Teachers meeting. We buy defense stamps. [30] " II isn ' t ;iny trouhlc lo ixTsundc students to lc;»vo tlu ' ir booivs ix ' iiind ;ind i () in for t ' lm. " Hingo rejiortrd to inc. " iind tlu ' V k ' iui an cnviajjly g;iy I ' xtra-furric-idar lite. " He told liow tiu ' v inightcnc ' d up a pvp nu ' ct- ing out-ot-doors witii a bonfiri ' on the Boys ' Quad grounds; how tluy later rode, all i ' d. or ran to town, sliouting tlie praises of the team. " Tiie same students are e([ually at home at forma! fiuulions, " lie e. i)laine(i furllier. " We liave formal sorority, fraternity and all - seliool affairs, sweater - and - skirt swings, teas and recejjtions. Yes. we go from tea to tails, and from formality to frivolity. " I ' reshmen turned out en masse for the annual formal reeiption given for them early in the yeai- by the faculty. ' I ' liey were amazingly at ease as tlu ' y went through the receiving line. A reception for up|)er- classmen came lalt ' r. " I was impressed by l ingo ' s account of Religious Kmphasis Week. ' Ibis was iield in I ' ebruary. when guest speakers con- ducted seminars, individual conferences, addressed the student body at evening ses- sions, and in return were entertained by organizations on tlu ' cam])us at dinners and luncheons. ' Phis stimulated interest in religion car- ried through the rest of the year, Bingo said. Bonfire pep rally . . . Formal dance by the Greeks . . . All-college dance. Informal tea . . . Freshman-faculty reception. :3i] As we walked toward llie powerhouse and greenhouse, the Beai ' cat told me about Personal Appraisal ' ek usually held in Ahireh. " ' How to Make the Most of What You Have but Don ' t Use ' might well he the theme of this week. " stated my genial guide, " But this year, perhaps because of economic conditions, we had a lu-altii emphasis week climaxed by a convention on the campus March 14 of the Missouri Health, Physical Education and Recrea- tion Association. " Now take a look behind scenes, " he said. " The men in the powerhouse, the greenhouse, those we saw repairing the roads, laying the sidewalks, cutting grass and trimming the shrubbery form the basis of efficiency on this camjjus. Be- sides, there are those who keep the buses and cars in repair so they can bring the high school and grade children to Horace Mann school every day. " Without their willing cooperation, we would be freezing in our rooms, com- plaining because we had no warm water, stumbling over broken walks or wading knee deep in mud. " The Powerhouse.

By now, doubtless, you see Bingo, the Bearcat, typilies the spirit on the campus. He represents you, and you, and you. It is through you, the student. Iliat he will continue to live.

Although this instruction is ])rimarily in- tended as training for entrance into the air corps, students also may go into advanced classes and receive a commercial pilot ' s license and an instiiictor ' s rating. The C. P. T. was started here in the sum- mer of 194(1 with one primary unit of ten students. At that linu ' tliere was one flight instructor, and two faculty members served as ground instructors. The airplane and equipment were leased from the Pony Robert L. Main, speech instructor, and Mrs. Main. Express Airways of St. .Joseph. The local unit has since grown to such a point that forty to fifty pilots are trained every four months. .Ml the equipment and the nine planes are owned by the unit itself. Now there are nine flight instructors, and three members of the College faculty are ground school instructors. Captain Edward G. Schultz is supervisor and flight instructor. Captain Schultz is one of the oldest active pilots in the United States and a member of the exclusive " F arly Birds. " He gives the check flights in all the units. The Maryville school of aeronautics is a Type B training center — designated by the . rmy . ir Corps as one that is oper- ated in conjunction with a college. Tiie unit is for C. P. T. use only and cannot he used as a commercial airport. Four courses are offered: Primary, sec- ondarv. cross-country and instructoi " . If a studeid finislies all four courses he re- ceiMs an instructor ' s rating and a com- mercial pilot ' s license. [34 1 The hangars — Ready for a flight. After a perfect landing — Among the clouds. Some of the boys who received their in- structor ' s ratings liere are now training pilots in the air corps at various centers throughout [hv I ' nilid States. Many of the gra(huitcs liave gone into tlu ' air corps and some are now on acli x ' (hity at war fronts over the world. The Maryvilh ' unit has turned out two girls with pilofs licenses — Doris Bristol of Maryville and Martha Harnian of St. Joseph. .Ml of the hf)ys iu training here now will enter the army or navy air cor|)s when they have cf)m])letcd lluii ' primary or sec- ondary training. On good flying (hiys. the airport is a bee- hive of activity from early in the morning until late in the evening, and much of the time is devoted to night flying. First, the ship is given a thorougli check, then it is fueled and " warmed up. " After these preliminaries the llight periods with the instructor begin. The climax of the Hying i)r()gram is the lirst " solo " when the student takes the plane up by himself. Usually the thrill of the first solo gives the sludeiit a greater desire to tly and more confidence in his fuluic as a pilot. Thus encouraged, llie sludcnt icdinihlcs his elVorls lo obtain tlie coveted wings. [35] Rut Firsl He Came tu Learn £ • " AfliiiiiiisfrafHiii aiifl Fa iiltv [37] Lloyd W.

The Boai-il of Res(eiits The governing body of the Northwest Missouri Stale Teaeliers College consists of a board of seven members appointed by the governor of the state. This group is known as the Board of Regents. The mem- bers of the board are selected from men throughout the nineteen counties of the northwest district. The board applies its supervisory control tiirough the president of the College. Tile interest of the meml)ers of tiie Board of Regents does not confine itself to tlie administration of the College. These men are interesteid. too, in the various ac- tivities of the College; in the ball games; in the major entertainment programs, and in the students themselves. This spring, E. C. Curfman of Maryville was ajiiiointed by Governor Donnell to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Dr. .Jesse Miller, who has served on tlie l)oard for nearlv sixteen vears. [38] I rc« ii«ldit Cel W. I si III kill President Uel W. Lamkin ' s sane and sensibli ' " U ' f s - kcfp - our - feet - on - the - ground " pliilosophy dui ' ing this eritieal year has been translated into eool-headed action on tiie part of botli faculty and student body. His judieious words. " Let us keep our feet on the ground ... let us do the work well which we have undertaken to do. " on that nuinorablc assembly December 8, 1941. we will not forget. Not panic, but a resolute. let " s-face-it calm followed that assembly. A few days later, the inslilulion as ])rou(i to count itself among tlie one hun- dred per cent in the puix-hase of defense stamps. faculty-student defense coimcil set to work and found numerous ways in which the entire College could help in the all-out war etl ' ort. The leader ' s words were having their eflfect. This is the sort of leadership that has made tiie College what it is today for since Mr. Lamkin arrived as president in 1921, the institution has known tremen- dous growth and progress, and this growth and i)rogress has been reflected o er the entire area. This is the sort of leadership that instills in tile students who ai ' e a part of the so- ciety on this campus the ideals which they will carry into the world; ideals wiiich they will always cherish and for which they would willingly sacrifice and tiglil. [3d: J. W. Jones Dean of Faeuliy Education has jDrogressed rapidly on our campus, aided largely by the efforts of Dean J. W. Jones. Contrary to the ancient custom. Dean Jones believes in crossing his bridges before he gets to them. Consequently, a stu- dent may plan his entire four-year schedule at the start, so thai in llic end lie will not discover that he lias failed to meet some currieidar ref[uireinenl. Tlie i)roverbial di-ead of an appearance befori ' the dean does not hold for oin- stu- (U ' lits. .Mthough Dean .loiies may be stern with " slackers, " he is fair witli " workers, " and whenever a sludi ' ut iceeives a " yes " or a " no " from the Dean he need not doubt that his case has been judged fairly. Personnel I ' ollowinij the modern trend the deans of women and of men have been replaced l)y directors of personnel. These offices of |)ers()imel function not only in a dis- cii)liiiary way. but as advisory boards lianding out aid and advice to students. These offices jilan social activities, ade- ([iiate liousing coiulitions. and em])loy- nunt facilities for students. They strive to aid students to get the most out of their college life; thej ' stress the social as well as th e academic. In general, oiu ' |)er- sonnel offices are ready to help those w lio need it.

Room Teachers Not only is a stuck ' nl tcacluT responsi- ble to a college professor concerning his teaching methods, but lie is also under the supervision and observation of the room teachers at the Horace Mann labora- tory school. These room teachers, in turn, are under the supervision of the theory instructors. They keep the Horace Mann classes from lacking continuity which could easily result from the change of student teachers from ([uarter to qiuuter. To a student teacher, ;i])prthensive but determined to succeed, the room teacher is a source of valuable help. At the be- ginning, he Iiel|)s the new teaciier to formulate general plans for the term. Tlie student is given a " day of grace " and relaxation to observe tile instruction of the room teacher. The student must prepare lesson plans for all his class work, but before he may put them into execution they must be a])])roved by his room teacher. From fre- ((uent confei-ences the student obtains advice and encouragement. During the ((uarti ' r the room teacher watches closely the student teachers under his super- vision and guides them through tiie first hew ildeiing days, then bids them good- bye at tile end of the term with best wisht ' s for the real joh.

A Bibliophile i)rize is awarded each year by President Lamkin to the student in the senior class who has acquired the best personal library during his four years of college. Byron Stevenson of Tarkio re- ceived this jirize last year. The Howard Leech medal is given an- nually to a junior man who has high scholastic standing and is a leader in extra-curricular activities and athletics. Robert Gregory of Maryville was the win- ner of this medal last year. Fifteen members of the senior class are chosen each year by a faculty committee to be includeil in " Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Uni- versities. " The student ' s record is con- sidered before entering college and while in college. To be included in the list, a student must have a combination of quali- ties that indicate lie is outstanding and an a.sset to the school.

Football With sixteen letternien from last year ' s team lost through graduation, the draft, and what have you. Bearcat football pros- pects were not too bright when the season rolled around this fall. True, Coach Ry- land Milner did iiave on hand twelve let- ternien headed by big Ivan " The Terrible " Schottel. But missing from the roster were the names of many who ha d meant much to the team last year. Very few persons predicted big things for this year ' s team. But Coach Milner had faith in his men, green though they were, and he set about building them into an ag- gregation which could go forth and do battle creditably against almost any oppo- sition. Milncr achieved his purpose. For when the season was over, the records showed llial the Bearcats were sharing the confer- ence cham])i )nsliip witli the Holla Miners. The Bearcats met their first opponents of the year, the strong East Kentucky Teachers of Richmond. Outweighed and inexperienced, the Bearcats were rated only an outside chance of winning the ball game, and try though they did, they were not quite able to overcome the odds of superior experience, and the final score read 18 to 7 in favor of East Kentucky State. As their second opponent, the Bearcats drew the star-studded .leflerson Barracks Blue Raiders, a team of former high school and college stars playing under the colors of Uncle Sam. Not a soul who knew any- tliing about the whys and wherefores of pigskin gave the Bearcats a chance, and the spectators who attended the game came only to see the big. brawny soldiers have fun with " Tafl ' y " Milner ' s kids. But it was evident from the start of the contest tiuit llie young Bearcats had not been reading the dope and did not know tiiey were outclassed. They took control of the situation about midway in the game and never relinquished it thereafter, as the score, li? to in favor of Maryville. proved. [78 1 The third i ;iiiu ' of llu- scmsoii round the Bearcats pitted against tlic Cluidron, Nt ' hr., Eagles, and the men of Mihici- gave tile crowd all they could ask in the contest. Playing with a patclu(l-u|) hack- field of fi ' cshnn ' n and s()])honioi ' fs, the Bearcats put on a tliiilling last-(|uarter exhibition to trounce the Eagles 27 to (i. In that final quarter, Maryville scori ' d two of its three touchdowns and the Eagles pulled olf a 75-yar(l dash to score their one. In this game, the freshmen antl the substitutes grabbed oft ' most of the glory. Panl Wilson came in for a goodly share with his excellent pinch signal calling, and the two little fellows, Lee Vannoy and Rex Adams, looked good. Of course, the stellar playing of the old standbys, Padilla, Gregory and Schottcl, was not to be overlooked. First league test of the season for the Bearcats came with the Springfield Bears, and the last year ' s champions showed their heels to the less experienced Bear- cats, winning 13 to 7. They brought just about everything, including the proverb- ial rabbit from the hat, and bewildered the green Bearcats no end. The Bearcats were unable to solve the tricky Bear at- tack until too late in the game to do any good. The game ended 1, ' } to 7 in favor of the Bears. The Bearcats came right back into the league picture in their second conference lilt against the Rolla Miners, October 18, with three long runs featuring the attack [79] Captain Ivan Schotcel which -set the Miners back on their heels to the tune of 20 to 7. The Bearcats played a fine game and deserved to win. But all was not good that came as a result of the win. They lost the services of two of their finest linemen for the remainder of the season, " Spec " Myers, the freckled end from Iowa, and big Vic Farrell, the 2. ' 0-pound tackle from Grant City. Art Schmagel was also injured, though not so severely, by a blow on the hip. All the Bearcat backs were functioning well throughout the contest. Jim Ellison at tackle, and Clift " McCIinton at guard stood out in the Bearcat line. For their next contest, the Bearcats took a jaunt down to Kansas City for a non- league go at the Rockhurst Hawks. Fa- vored in the pre-game dope, Maryville ran true to form and lumg up a rather easj ' 21 to () victory. End of the run The Bearcats lost no time in making it 2 out of 3 in league competition when they marched 52 yards through the rain and mud at Cajjc (iirardeau, October 31, to score a first-quarter louclidown. which was enough to i)ut tliem on the long end of a 0-0 final tally. The Indians came back to throw a scare into the Bearcats in the second period when they marched to llie Bearcat 10, but the Bearcat defense stiffened and held them for downs. I ' -om tlial |)()int the con- test resolved into a punting duel. In the final |)eri()d, Maryville again al- most broke into ])ay dirt. Tliey ])uslu ' (l the ball di-e]) to the Indian 7, hut a penalty set tliem back and liie op|)()rtunily was o i ' r. On Friday, N()vend)er 7, tile Bearcats met the Kirksville Bulldogs on the home field for the last home clash of the season. Both clubs, unable to compete with the in- clement weather, which featured a iiigh. cold wind llu ' ougliout tiie game, develop- ing into a snowstorm in the final period, were unai)le to infiict any damage. The Bearcats pushed the Bulldogs all over the field, but failed to find the right combination which would put them in the scoring column. Tiie Bearcat defense re- ceived credit for what glory there was to be gained in tiie game. It was sensational. Only in tlie liiird ([uarter were the Bull- dogs able to break away for a sizeable gain. And ininu ' diately thereafter, tlie Bearcats rose up to the man and thing them back. The whole story was one of heartbreak for llie Bearcats, and it was a moral victory for Kirksville, although the same ended witli the score tied at to 0.

Playing the last game of his i)rilliant college career, big Ivan Schotti ' l banged into the Warrensbnrg line all day. Bob Gregory, also hanging up his spikes for the last time, had a perfect record, his edu- cated toe converting three jilacemenls for extra points out of three attem])ts. Harold Flannnang. co-captain of next year ' s team along with little .lack Padilla. got his chance to be hero when he snagged a Mule pass with only 20 seconds remaining in the second quarter to outstep and out- nianeuver the Mules for a tally. Schottel scored the first Maryville coiuit- er. After the ball had see-sawed back and forth for some time, he plunged over from the 2 in one altem|)t. Maryville had gaini ' d the ball on tin- Mules " II. and Bennett, ' inters and Padilla brought the ball to the 2 in three attempts, fiom where Schot- tel took o er. ' I ' hen Flanunang snared his pass with l)ut 20 seconds remaining and scored as the period ended. Maryville ' s final score came in the third period. Schottel again plunged over for the counter, but this time it took him four attempts from the Mule 3 to do the trick. Bob Gregory of course added all the extra points. Four Bearcats were given berths on the 1941 M. I. A. A. All-star teams. Captain Schottel and Robert Gregory were picked as fullback and giuird on the first team, and .Jim Ellison, tackle, and Jack Padilla, halfback, on the second team. (Season record — poge 92.)

Coach Wilbur " Sparky " Stalcup fouud that he was in a worse predicament than " TaH ' y " ' Milner had been with his football pros- l)ects. The old devil, inexperience, reared its ugly head. Gone from the lineup that had shared the conference crown with the Warrens- burg Mules the year before were most of the big names. Huteheson. Hull, Salmon. Walker, Don John.son. all were gone. Re- turning to the fold were only five letter- men, and of thai group only Eddie .John- son had been a regular. lUit Coach Stalcup had a heritage of winners behind him. Me made up his mind to build, and that is what he did. Using lettermen Johnson, Wilson. Schot- tel. Frank Myers, and Gregory as a nucleus and adding a couple of freshmen plus an upperclassman or two. he built a machine that, when the iinal M. I. . . A. statistics were tabulated, held fast to the undisputed possession of the runner-uj) position, second only to tlie gigantic War- re nsburg Mules. In Ibeir opening assignment, the Bear- cats drew a team of exjierienced seniors from Missouri Valley, and beat them. It wasn ' t a good game ragged, a ty])ical early season aHair with both clubs mak- ing errors — but it gave Coach Stalcup and most Bearcat basketball fans the idea that this year ' s Bearcat team was one that, if it liad nothing else, had i)lenly of scrap.

However, the Ik ' arcats made it very much of a game all the way and only in the final minutes were tile Hornets able to breathe easily. The final score was 31-24. It was evident that tlu ' Hornets had heard of Schottel ' s prowess as a long shot artist, for throughout llu ' ball game they harassed him, waving their hands in his face even when he was deep in the hack I ' ourt. I ' ut in the closing portion of the game, he llnaliy found the range and sank foui ' long ones to gain high point honors. Hut Sehottel had liltle liel]) from his I ' .iates. Cicne Cross, the sophomoic from Iowa, scored his liisl arsity points with two one-l;anded |)okes from the field. Lauchiskis had a basket, and Gregory had a basket, but no other Bearcats could con- nect from the field. . ud tlurein lay the reason for the verdict, because ( amphell had a bit more assistance from his mates, Caywood. Kno.x. and Payton. On December 19, the Bearcats drew tlieir first league o])]iosition. They met the Pa)lla Miners on the honu ' court and had tilings pretty nuich their way in pounding out a 38 to 29 decision. The game was a ragged affair with neither team looking Ukv cliam])ionship mati ' rial. It was tlu ' first league game in history to be played on the home couit before the Christmas holidays. Waiting for the rebound. A basket in the making. [85] Basketball Letteriuen This time, it was Joe Lauchiskis who came into his own. The Chicago bomb shell, who earlier evidenced a potential ability to score, finally fonnd his eye and came through to the extent of six baskets and three free tosses. Schottel spent a goodly portion of the ball game on the bench as he made three fouls early in the game, and Stalcup was conserving his services. But Schottel. along with Johnson, Gregoiy. Cross, and Myers, helped Lauch- iskis witli buckets. Then the Bearcats entered the Emporia State Teachers College Tournament, held at Emporia, Kas., December 31 to January 2. No one figured the Bearcats would do anything spectacular, but the amazing Bearcats, exhibiting their usual fighting spirit plus a skill which no one susiJected they possessed, upset all the dope carts to win the tourney hands down. As their first opponent, the Bearcats drew the Wichita. Kas.. University Quin- tet. And they had little trouble in handing them a 29 to 19 setback. Joe Lauchiskis and Eddie Johnson shared scoring honors in this game with each garnering himself four field goals. But on January 1 the Bearcats drew the towering, heavily favored Kansas Wes- leyan Coyotes from Salina, Kas., and here the dopesters figured was the finish for the Bearcats. But it was here that the Bearcats really came into their own. Yith Lauchiskis, Glavin, Schottel, Rudolph.

Kan. And here the dopcsters were sure that the Bearcats would fail. But the Bear- cats had tasted blood. So they came right back to hand tlie Bakerites a 43 to 40 defeat that had the fans on their feet all the way. It was here that Joe Lauchiskis, the Chicago lad, poured them through the lio()|) I ' loin all angles to run up a total of 20 i)oinls.

Xortliwest Missouriaii The Northwest Missourian, official weekly newspaper of the College, is pub- lished by a staff composed of such nuin- bers of the student body who like to report the canii us news. These students, accord- ing to College regulation, are allowed one semester hour of activity credit for each semester of satisfactory work on the staff. Re(|uirements include attendance at staff meetings, a considerable amount of writ- ing, and the performance of otlier duties st ' t by the editor or the f acidly adviser. Since 1934, the editor of the pa])er has been selected by the Student Senate, with the approval of the College administra- tion. The editor-in-chief for this year was ' alter .loimson. He was assisted bv Pxitv Hower and Ted Woodw ard, associate and sports editors, respectively. For many years the Northwest Mis- sourian stall ' has been " cooped up " in small, crowded quarters, but this year the ])aper moved into a new otlice where the functions of a newspaper may be carried on will; sjjace to spare.

The memliersliip consists of a president and vice-president chosen by the student body from the senior class; four members each from the sophomore and junior classes, and two from the freshman class. Serving on the Senate is considered one of the highest lionors a student may hold in College. . mong the duties of the Senate are the approving of all student committees, the cheerleaders, and tlic intramural commis- sion. This body grants |)ermissi()n. with the cooperation and ad ice of the admin- istration, for the formation of new organi- zations of any sort on the campus. This year the Senate cooperated with the College in the defense program and was successful in making the College 100 per cent loyal in a defense stamp campaign. Four uuini)ers of the Senate serve on the student-faculty defense committee which nu ' cts weekly to discuss the place of the College in the present crisis and the defense needs of the students. II is tlie custom to send two members of the Senate lo the annual X. S. F. A. con- vention liicii this year was held in Min- neapolis. Theodore Young, president, and Mary Frances McCaHrey. vice-president of the Student Senate, were representa- tives. New Senators are elected in the spring. [100] The Student Social Committee is eon- tinually on tiie waleli to keep the social life of the CoUegi ' ruiiniiiii; smoothly. The organization is composed of students who are chosen hy the Student Senate. Each of the lin-ee lower classes on the Social C-ommittee is representetl hy one man and one woman. Three representa- tives are selected from the senior class, one of whom is appointed chairman. The main pnrposc of the committee is to supervise anj ' social activity planned by or for the students. They see that the activity conforms to the regulations of till ' College, and help to insure tlu ' suc- cess of the e ent. The connnittee sjjonsors sevt ' ral stu- dent functions direi-tly. One of these is Lea]) Week — when the girls gel their chance at doctr-opening, coke-buying and telejihoning. The idea was laimched on this campus for the first time last year and proved so popular that it was held again this year. Another big event on the committee ' s calendar is the Christmas Ball, one of the loveliest formats of the year. Occasionally late-afternoon " dan- cettes " break in on the class schedule. A.

The council consists of three members from each of the two sororities, with the presidency of the council alter- nating yearly between the heads of the two organizations. The council is primarily responsible for the administration of the Fan-Hellenic rush rules during rush week.

The chairmanship of the council alternates annually between the presidents, each year going to the fra- ternity whose organization is entitled lo llie majority of members on the council. The council acts as a liaison agent to settle disputes that may arise between the fraternities or individual members of the fraternities. [103: E. J. Garrett, B. Leet, Treas- urer; C.

Success- ful most of all. perJiaps. liecaiise of our persistence in living up to the aims of the sorority. These aims are to huild charac- ter, (k ' (l()|) leadership, promote unselfish cooperation, stimulate high endeavor, and to create a friendly spirit in all human relationships. These are important factors in a living democracy. Our social activities have ranged from harn dances to the annual Founder ' s Day banquet; from our lovely Cl-.rislmas and spring formals to wiener roasts and coast- ing parties. Tri Sig members are widely known on the campus, not only for their |)leasing personalities, but also because in tiieir group are class ollicors. Student Senate members, student body otHcers. members of " Who ' s ' h() Among Students in x mer- ican Colleges and Universities. " and other iionorary j)ositions too numerous to mention. This year the girls entered wholeheart- edly into tlie defense program. They pur- chased a defense bond, contributed to the Red Cross, and many of them enrolled in First Aid classes. The sorority wishes to thank its advis- ers. Miss Margaret Owen and Miss .June Cozine, and its ])atroni ' sses, Mrs. Henry Hlanchard, Mrs. Forrest Gillam. Mrs. Ed- ward Condon and Mrs. Norvel Sayler. for heli)ing to make the year a successful one. Many active and alumna members, ac- comininied by Miss Cozine and Miss Nell Hudson, went to Kansas City in the fall to a regional meeting at the Hotel President. The entire meeting was built around Ihe theme of a military camp. Tlie delegates were entertained at many social affairs as well as business meetings, wliich proved very worthwhile for all tliose who at- tended. Alpha Si Kiiia Alpha The Whole Gang Tlie affair of supreme importance to Phi Phi Chapter, during the summer ses- sion interhide, was the Alpha Sigma Alpha national convention, which was held at the fashionable Edgewater Beach hotel in Chicago. Our representative to the con- vention, Mary Frances Todd, attained one of the most cherished honors, when the queen ' s crown was placed upon her. Yith national honors to our credit, we started the year with a bang — " Hellza- poppin ' in Burma " was the title of our rush week dance. The dance had an oriental theme, and llie rushees were armed witli cap pistols for protection from the orientals. Though the pistols were brandished tlu ' oughout the evening, the enemy remained undaunted by this display of artillery. The dance was inter- rupted by a blackout during which the sky was filled witli a galaxy of fireworks. As an added attraction the air raid shelter did a land-ollice business during the raid. Fortunately, no b()ml)s were dropjied. The enemy pilots apparently could not muster enough courage to drop bombs on such an unmilitary gathering of the fairer sex. PT-om air raids and war, our attention turned to the rituals of the Christmas sea- son. We ushered in the Yuletide with a theatre dance. Attention was divided be- tween the movie and dancing in the lounge. The " Sweetheart Dance " was a gala oc- casion. It had a shade of the medieval, when the King, Richard McDougal, and the Queen, Mary Margot Phares, were crowned. We did our bit for national defense by purchasing a defense bond. Our annual tea was sacrificed so that we might buy the bond. The start of the spring quarter found us wearing vivid red sweaters, with the Greek letters of our organization on the front. As another grand Alpha Sig year lrew to a close we once again planned for the big occasion on our calendar, the spring formal. It proved just as thrilling and ex- citing as ever, which was the proper end- ing for a successful Alpha Sig year. [106] B. Harazini, I. Heideman, H Adams, N. Allen; M.

On the land, in the air and on tho sea. many members of the Nu Chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon fraternity are eontribnting llu ' ir serviees in Uncle Sam ' s armed forces. from the coasts of Anstralia to the waters of Xewfoundland. These man range in rank from the backbone of the fighting forces, the buck private, to majors. Even though the chapter has contril)- II ted to our armed forces, it has managed to carry on a successful year. The frater- nity entertained with many social events. Probably the most outstanding and a])pro- priate was the informal blackout dance. Following the theme of national defense. Ili( i)rogram and decorations made a hit w ith everj ' one. The parlor of the Phi Sig house has l)r()ved to be a wonderful place to reniw old acquaintances and spend Sunday aft- ernoons and almost any week day evening dancing or playing cards. Mrs. Burch. our house mother, was always on hand to make things homier for our guests. The fraternity ' s formal parties were held at the Country Club. These highlights of the year — when we really put on the dog for our best girl friends — were the Christ- mas formal and the spring formal. The latter is the la.st big social event of the year. We have a bright outlook for next year, even though many of our members prob- ably will be missing when the roll is called. Upon the .shoulders of the members returning will fall the responsibility of carrying on the traditions of the organ- ization.

Sigma Tail Gamma, the oldest fraternity on this campus, is also the oldest national social-professional teachers college frater- nity in the United States. There are now twenty-three chapters located throughout the nation. Theta chapter was installed on this cam- pus in 1927. The ohjectives of the frater- nity are social enrichment, extensive par- ticipation in extra-curricular activities, leadership, apd fellowsliip among mem- bers. Any college man who is selected by the active chapter is eligible to join the fra- ternity. The Sigma Tans activities were limited during the fall quarter because they did not have a fraternity iiouse at that time. . t the beginning of the winter quarter fifteen members of tlie fraternity moved into a new Sigma Tau House on West Fourth Street, . fter tiny were settled in tiieir new house they became more active. Altiiough so many jjoys have been called to the armed forces that the strength of the organization was weakened, tiie member- shi]) is now on the mend. The group was justly proud to be able to contribute to the defense of the country in this way. A smoker was held during the fall quar- ter to entertain prospective members of the fraternity, . nother smoker was held shortly after the beginning of the spring quarter. Many other formal and informal social events were held throughout the year. The Sigma Tans gave several informal dances at liie ( " .ountry Club. The liighlights of the social calendar, however, were the annual Christmas and spring formals. The spring formal dance held early in May was the grand finale to the well-roinided social l rogram of the whole year. It seems that tiie Sigma Tans must be air-minded, as several of the members are taking advantage of the local Civilian Pilot Training program or are already in tlie air corps. [110 1 J.

The organiza- tion strives to give its members an oppor- tunity for participation in student govern- ment; to create a spirit of fellowship among all the College women who are liv- ing in private homes; to promote high ideals and standards of living; to create a cultural and social atmosphere; to stimu- late active participation in College life, and to create leadership among College women. The Varsity Villagers Cou ncil, the exec- utive body of the association, is made up of the elected jiresidents of llie organized approved liouses and a proportional rep- resentation of the girls in unorganized homes. This group deals with the prob- lems relating to the girls not living in Residence Hall and ])lans a varied and stimulating program for the year, includ- ing the summer session. This grou]) of College women is one of the largest organizations on the campus. Their social calendar this year was well filled with many formal and informal affairs, ranging from dances and teas to banquets and theater parties. This spring they cooperated with Residence Hail in giving an April Fool Dance. The year closed witli the formal installation of offi- cers in the spring. [119] Assfieiatioii Utr Cliilillioocl Eflii€ uiioii fpirl 3loots Toai-lior Majors and minors in kindergarten and l)riniary edueation make up the Associa- tion for Cliildiiood Education. Its purpose is to promote friendliness and profes- sional solidarity among all students who are in the primary t ' ducalion dei)artment. This organization was founded on the campus in 1928 under the leadership and guidance of Miss Chloe Millikan, sponsor. A. C. E. was then a hranch of the National Council of Primary Education. In 1931 the name was changed to Association for Childhood Education. Through this grou]) the jiotential teach- ers in the primary education field are aided in becoming as efficient as possible. These women study the development of the child from early birth until past ele- mentary age. Willingness to study com- bined with ])lenty of ])atience are the (jualities needed by the A. C. E. members. Interest has been increasi ' d by local activities but each year a delegation is sent to the national convention. The mem- bers benefit both educationally and social- ly from these trips. Regular meetings and social activities niaki ' up the calendar. Latest develop- ments in the field of primary education are discussed at the meetings. Parties and teas comprised the social program this year. Prospective members were enter- tained with a tea in the fall and the new ple lges were guests at a costume party. The spring formal dinner is the outstand- ing event every year and it is followed by a May morning breakfast for senior mem- bers. Front Row: B. Hanna, C. Meyer, Treasurer; C.

In the fall they made a trip to the Y. M.- Y. W. state conference at Camp Dericotte near Troy, Mo. Some meetings they at- tended were iield in St. Louis. Each fall the new members are initi- ated with a ceremony, either formal or informal. Last fall both " Y " groups had their initiation around a campfire. The " Y " this year sponsored an all- school half-and-half dance. The first half of the time was spent doing folk dances and the latter part was devoted to .social dancing.

Chorus Rojiios of the l oiitli The College chorus, under tlie direction of Mr. H. X. Schuster, is tlie largest organ- ization in tlie music ])rograni of the Col- lege. The chorus has as its foundation most of the members of tlie smaller vocal ensembles in the school, and practically all of the majors and minors in the music department. The organization presented the Thanks- giving program and sang parts of Han- del ' s " Messiah " April 2. in a sjiecial Easter assembly. This was the organization ' s crowning achievement of the year. The purpose of the chorus is, besides learning to sing some of the works of major composers, to acquaint the meiu- bei ' s with various kinds of vocal music. This is extremely valuable to students who in later years, as teachers, will need to know how to select music for school mu- sical organizations. Music students who participate in file clioiiis are entitled to activitv credit.

The choir is conii)osed of select musical voices chosen from the entire student body. To be eligible for membership, a student must have a good voice, which is true in pitch and of nice quality, and a real love for singing. This group has made several appear- ances during the school year, including both evening i)erformances and mixed contributions to the assembly programs. Tile choir makes a particidar contribution to the College observance of the Christ- mas and Easter seasons. This year the choir aided the spi-ech department in pre- senting the Christmas assembh ' . The choir emphasizes the singing of a cappella music, but it often jjerforms with an orchestral or piano accompani- ment. The grouj) studies and presents chielly the great choral masterpieces from the various schools of musical composi- tions, but if also does some w ork in the field of popular music.

" he be- gins reniiniscently, " the first class meet- ings, and the always pleasant business of resuming old acquaintances and making new ones, the students settled down to a regular routine, broken only by the social events and entertainments which added zest to a year of interesting activity. " As always, this year was full of social functions, and everyone had a chance at them. A few ' majored " in social life, but these, happily, were in the minority. The wiser ones carefully kept a i)alanee be- tween the social and the academic. Some- thing was doing every week, from the be- ginning of the year to the end. " Though at Uv first of the year many students succumbed to homesickness and flocked to their homes for week ends, it wasn ' t long before they began looking for- ward to staying on the camj)us for the parties and dances. " Thus we had a brisk social life from the very start. " The O ' Neillians ' Halloween masquerade . . . Tri Sigs ' barn dance . . And the Phi Sigs have an informal. Sorority-ites in the making . . .

" [144] kws The Freshman Reception well under way. " The first big (hiiifo of llu ' year took ])lacc ' on Octoljtr 10. This was the annual Homecoming dance in the old west library following the Homecoming game. Almost everyone who knew one step from another attended, and yielded to the rhythms of the College Dance Band. Bettj ' Drennan, a cute little girl from Corning, la., was en- joying herself immensely. Small wonder — she reigned as Football Queen over the festivities. " Then followed, on November 1. a Resi- (k ' uci ' Hall dance, and two weeks later the annual formal dance, in whi cii all Greek letter organizations on the campus took part. " The boys at the Quad threw a dance on January 20, proving that their dining hall makes a successful dance floor. " The dramatics club — or, the O ' Xeillians — paused long enough during a rehearsal of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman ' s comedy. ' George Washington Sle])t Here. " to pose for a " still.

" The College next presented Larra Browning, noted soprano, in concert Jan- uary 6. Students were much in evidence at this event and a few even went backstage to get a better look. " The intelligentsia had their day at the third major entertainment scheduled .lan- uary 28. This was a lecture by Dr. Max Lerner. who is well known as an author, lecturer and political thinker. We found mental stimulation and a challenge to our own ideas in his stirring address. " On February 26, the famous Chekhov players presented a delightfully humorous version of Sliakespeare ' s innnorlal com- edy, ' Twelfth Night. ' The director, Michael Chekhov, nejihew of the great Anton, showed that the smug, standardized art of yesteryear has jjassed, and placed his company in step with the dynamic quality of the times.

To answer the demand for accelerated education ])rograms. the College has an- nounced i)lans for an intersession begin- ning August 6 and ending September 2. One of the first projects of the defense council was to launcii a defense stamp campaign with a one hundred per cent goal for faculty, students and all College employees. This goal was reached only a few days after the campaign started. Sev- eral organizations on the campus bought defense bonds. The local Civilian Pilot Training pro- gram, whicii is oj)eraU(i in i-on juiuiion with the College, turns out forty to lifly l)ilots every four months. These men go dircclly into the air corps or remain to take instructor ' s training. Early this spring, the application of the College for the Navy ' s V-1 course of studj ' was accepted and its curricida approved. This program is especially for freshman and so])homore men. Several members of the faculty have volunteered their services in the Civil . ir Patrol in tliis area.

Bingo al- lowed himself to dwell upon two more events of the year that cut quite a swathe in a social way : " Following the Alpha Sigma Alpha ' Sweetheart ' dance, over which Richard McDoiigal and Mary Margot Phares reigned as king and queen, the attention of the students was drawn to the ' crown- ing ' event of the year — the Scoop Dance, at which the ' Tower ' queen is always feted. Tiiis was lield on Saturday, March 21, after a week of intrigue and much speculation regarding the prohable iden- tity of the Chosen One. A traditional fea- ture of the dance, the crowning ceremony, was held with (hie fanfare, pomj) and dis- play at inteiniission. The successful can- didate, selected by the men of tiie College, was Betty Drennan, who also was elected football queen earlier in the year. Her four attendants were Eris Quinn, Eleanor Peck. Charlene Barnes and Shirley Hallen. Don Cummins, editor of the ' Tower, ' crowned liie queen, amidst enough feminine pul- chritude to make even a hard case editor nervous. The concluding dance of tiie year was the all-college mixer, held on tlie closing day of the spring term. Before the year ended, there were other closing activities, outstanding among which were the senior class day, the spring musical show and the commencement exercises for departing seniors.
