LAM KIN PRESIDENT His all is for the Col- lege, the students, and their education. The Presi- dent is one of the fore- most advocates of study now, as a foundation for the future, hie personally symbolizes through the unfailing energy of ac- complishment the true value of education, hlis is the hand which pulls the strings and clears the lines for a better, a co- ordinated, an influential school. BOARD OF REGENTS Pulling for the College and rejoicing at its success, the Board of Regents, appointed by the Governor of the state, gives ever vigilant background supervision to school affairs. They cannot meet very often now, but t heir suggestions are carried out by the President of the College. E. C. Curfman, Maryville, Mo.; R. L. Douglas, St. Joseph. Mo.: Edmond McWilliams.

JONES DEAN OF FACULTY A smile and an encour- aging remark from Dean Jones have helped many a student with curriculum and other problems. In wartime spirit he has also taken over the job of Registrar, which entails all the scholastic data of the institution. First among his desires is doing his job; secondly come his garden, his camera, and his dog. PERSONNEL DIRECTORS Mom and Dad just can ' t follow Mary or Johnny to college and most assuredly the kids can ' t leave their problems behind. Thus, such questions as a place to live, a job, social diversion, and a distribution of books and fun fall to the competent hands of the Per- sonnel Directors for solution. DOROTHY TRUEX Director of Personnel for Women HAROLD V.

ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS Food without salt or a college without administrative officers, either would be utterly hopeless. What do you do when the sneezes begin — run to the doctor. What ' s the procedure when the reference book ' s In demand — the library, of course. Where do you turn for a party — to the office of person- nel. What ' s the remedy for a craving thirst — the book store. Who is to publicize your school and your friends — the director of publicity. Yes, they are a willing group, personally Interested in helping you flavor your busy col- lege days. I 8 J FACULTY JULIAN C. ALDRICH Social Science, Chairman ESTELLA BOWMAN English MRS.

SECRETARIES Teachers and Administrators are not the only contributing factors in the success of college activities, for nnany of them have secretaries, those efficient people who type letters, answer questions, and generally keep things in order. ROOM TEACHERS To the room teacher goes the task of allaying the apprehensions of the student teacher, and helping him build confidence and competence. Besides supervision she must also teach classes in her room, mak- ing her purpose two-fold; that of training prospective teachers, and that of teaching her pupils.

HUBERT T. GARRETT MERTON W. WILSON In memory of Hubert T. Garrett, who so faithfully served his college in past years. Mr. Garrett, a member of the Social Science department, and head of the Office of Recommendations, served on the college faculty from 1930 to 1943. hie took his work in the field of the Social Sciences seriously, believing it his duty to make better citizens of the young people in his classes. Mr. Garrett was a man with broad civic interests. He will be remembered for his active participation in local as well as school events. In memory of Merton W. Wilson, who so faithfully served this college for twenty-nine years. Mr. Wilson, head of the Chemistry department, was a member of the fac- ulty from 1914 to 1943. He was a man who held scholarship in high esteem and who always encouraged his students to go forward in their education. Mr. Wilson was a very popular man on the campus. He was sponsor of the Junior class, and took an active interest in the athletic program. He will always be remembered for his lively spirit and desire to serve the student body. I 23 I rSSE ri LT. RALPH K. BROWN Keeping 400 men (sailors at that) corralled is no easy task — so you will have to hand it to the " cap- tain, " for he has certainly done a fine job as Com- nnanding Officer of this Navy V- 1 2 unit. The C. O. is known by everyone on the campus — civilian and sailor alike, hlis jovial way and willing- ness to help make him a favorite personality at M. S. T. C. NAVY PERSONNEL Every ship must have a ship ' s company — the S. S. Maryville is no exception. What V-12 A S hasn ' t taken P. T. under Lieut. Faggetti? — or waited impatiently for the first of the month for that paycheck from Ensign Gorman? — or watched with crossed fin- gers the restricted list posted by Lieut. Nystrom? — or gone up to sick bay to see Lieut. Comdr. Reuter about that sore thumb? Aboard the S. S. Maryville the C. P. O. ' s instruct P. T., and they are the ones we see at noon muster inspecting, and giving out orders and demerits. The rest of the ship ' s com- pany, yoemen, storekeepers, and pharmacist mates, are all necessary to keep the ship operating smoothly. LIEUT, (j.g.) ALBERT FAGGETTI, JR. [24] ENSIGN LORRAINE A. GORMAN LIEUT. CLARENCE NYSTROM LIEUT. COMDR. FRED. L. REUTER OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE On July I, 1943, total war, with a capital T hit us, and part of the largest navy in the world, the good old U. S. Navy, moved in on its objective — namely Northwest Missouri State Teachers College . . . After a few minor skirmishes the college became a naval shore station. Decks, ladders, and portholes were surrounding us. Food was now Chow. The flag was not lowered perfunctorily by a janitor at 5:00, but by a squad of sailors in true naval style, and mind you, at 1700! Gossip was no longer dirt, chatter, or gore, it was scuttlebutt — and when even gossip is changed that IS revolutionary . . . After a very few weeks of Navy Blues we began to get accustomed to the sight of uniformed men, and we ' re all so used to the Navy by now that it is hard to imagine getting along without these sailors.

VARSITY VILLAGERS COUNCIL The Varsity Villagers Association is a social organization for all the girls who live oft the campus, which includes all the girls now. The council, which is connposed of the Varsity Villagers officers and the presidents of approved houses, serves as a governing body and helps plan all social events. The plan is to have at least one social event each month. Some of the main events this year have been: Treasure hunt for the freshmen girls, theater party with entertainment in the Tivoli lounge afterwards, informal Christmas Dance with the Navy Dance Band furnish- ing the music, and the Penny Carnival given for the new Navy boys. In addition to these social activities, the Varsity Villagers have served on the campus as ushers for major entertainments, guides for Senior Day, and assistants in all-school projects. [43] TOWER STAFF Time — Money — Film — and W-O-R-K — are all necessary for putting out a yearbook, and we were definitely short on all. But have a 1944 Tower we m-u-s-t! So with the decision made and the big offensive started, things began to work out. First came priority on films, workers rallied to the call and began to produce. But there was that money ele- ment that proved to be very stubborn (what with the scarcity of rubber, It didn ' t seem to stretch very well). But by cutting down here and grouping there, we finally found our- selves with a Tower ready for publication. Here It is — we have done our best. We owe a great deal of the success of this publication of the Tower to our sponsor. Miss Truex, whose unceasing helpfulness was so graciously given.

ESTHER MILLER A feminine staff, with the exception of the V-12 sports writer, they have never been accused of " petticoat scruples. " Of special note is the effort which has been made in the Armed Services Column to follow the students who have attended college here. Several men have written back to say that they had located their former buddies through the Missourian. For the past year the dates of publication have been twice monthly instead of weekly, on account of the paper and manpower shortage. SEATED: C. B. Sullenger, Miss Mattie M- Dykes, sponsor; R.

SIGMA TAU GAMMA Theta Chapter of this fraternity was established on this campus in 1927, and is one of the oldest national social professional teachers college fraternities. The objectives are so- cial enrichment, extensive participation in extra-curricular activities, leadership, and fellow- ship among members. The Tau ' s were handicapped very much in the fall by havin g only four old members re- turn and, the chapter room being needed by the Navy, hlowever, the Navy sent some fine fellows here and the Tau ' s wish to express their appreciation to the Student Senate for use of the Bearcat Den as a meeting place. Social events consisted of smokers, a dinner, Greek-Letter formal, initiation, and fun. [49] All aboard! Plane leaving for England, Russia, and China. Tri-Sigma opened her rush season by taking a tour through the allied nations. Picnics, nnovies, dances, and a lot of fun have been hers! Mrs. Ennnna Teichgraeber, national inspector, visited us, and the pledges entertained by giving a lovely tea in her honor. The major social event was our spring formal — it was the climax to a very successful year! Our national social service project for the year was contributing to the museum in an Argentine school. We contributed a box containing interesting articles and pictures from Missouri, and were the first chapter to write a letter to this school. We also gave aid to the local nursery school and rolled bandages one night each month In the Red Cross room. FIRST ROW: W. Stirlen, M. Alexander, vice-president; B. Goforth, B. Anderson, M.

The Association for Childhood Education, familiarly known as the A. C. E., is a student branch of a great international organization which has as its chief purpose and interest the guidance and education of young children — nursery, kindergarten, and primary. Young women who are preparing themselves for teaching in this field are invited to become mem- bers. Miss Chloe E. Millikan, Director of Early Childhood Education, is the sponsor. Meet- ings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. The year opened with a tea for prospective members early in September. The pledging and initiation party, the Christmas party, the Valentine party, and the May breakfast are social events which are still on the calendar. The other meetings are of a professional na- ture. The community service project this past year was a continuance of our support of the city day nursery. [55] " Yea! Maryville, " shout the Barkatze. After twelve years of having a membership of about twenty boys and twenty girls, the organization, due to lack of civilian manpower, changed its constitution for the duration. Now it is an all female group that you see wear- ing the traditional green jackets and white culottes, supporting their team so enthusiastic- ally. Their group spirit helped them in putting on several successful stunts and two well- attended chili suppers. They are looking forward to another year with their sponsors.

New members are selected by a unanimous vote of the Peppers. The Peppers in their green and white uniforms have been present at every game to spur the Bearcats on to victory. They are girls who have plenty of vim, vigor, and vitality. In addition to their loyal support they have put on stunts between halves at several games. [57 1 FIRST ROW: M. L. Taul, E. Fox, T.

As usual, there was the Women ' s Chorus, Women ' s Ensemble, String Quartet, and String Ensemble. These groups were active all year and made several public appearances. With the coming of the Navy, a marching band was organized which played at the football games and for Dress Inspection. These and a few other Instrumental groups and the Navy Quartet made up the Music Department, which helped with various campus activities. WOMEN ' S ENSEMBLE LEFT TO RIGHT: V. Pfander B. J.

If not they should be, for here are three people who attend- ed every home game, football and basketball, rain or shine; who cheered the loudest and jumped the highest — all for the spirit of the game. When enthusiasm lagged and Bearcat points were a little weak, the cheerleaders were there to spur the team on to greater ef- forts; and when points were rolling in thick and fast, it was the cheerleaders again who led the happy throng in songs and yells. They didn ' t forget the opposing team, either. Nearly every game there were fifteen rah ' s for someone besides Bearcats, and exceptionally fine plays by the opposing side were applauded. Sportsmanship, pep, ability, and enthusiasm are just a few of the characteristics neces- sary to a good cheerleader, and we are proud to say that our leaders possess all of them. Now, let ' s have three cheers for TEAM, a big Bearcat Locomotive, a couple of cart- wheels from Ben, and — another goal, please! [64 J Betty Jo Montgomery Ellin Graham Mary Bruce Sue Moore Carolyn Curnutt FOOTBALL QUEEN Half time at the Homecoming game had been called. Green and White Peppers and Barkatze had performed their stunt and were waiting in place on the field, and the crowd was in suspense as a roadster bearing the football queen and her attendants drove on to the field. Not a hint as to her identity had escaped, so no one knew that Jay Dougan was to crown Mary Bruce as 1943-44 Queen of Football. Candidates and their escorts took their places on a platform built on the field. Mary was crowned Queen and then presented with a football bearing the names of the mem- bers of the football team. The Queen reigned over the Homecoming dance following the game. I 65 1 ■a m »wvMf T WJx; f w m OBI FOOTBALL Starting the football season with only letternnen Dygert and Weidmaier, Coach " Taffy " Milner built up a hard hitting and high passing squad of Navy lads. They marched down the field for five wins, one tie, and one defeat. The Bearcats opened the season at Rosecrans Field on September 18, against the Rose- crans Flyers, and Van Pelt ' s passes to Dygert clicked for a 6-0 win. Bringing the game to the home field on September 24, the Green and Whites trounced the Missouri Valley Vikings by a score of 14-0. Flashy Joe Flad showed his running power when he dashed 78 yards for a touchdown. Doane College delivered to Maryville, on October I, its only defeat of the season, when their Dick Thompson aggressively squeezed through the Bearcat line for an 18-14 margin. On October 8, the Bearcats, on their home field, handed the Peru Bobcats a 25-7 defeat, and Behrens almost tied Flad ' s running feat when he made a 75- yard return. Clemmensen, Benedetti, and Guiter showed their usual backing skill. 166] FRONT ROW: W. J. Waggoner, R. R. Hornyak, L. T. Young, S. A. Szabo, J. Corken. D. Patton, G. Fromknecht. SECOND ROW: R. E.

Getting the Bearcats on their home field, October 16, the Bobcats settled for a 0-0 tie. With both teams depleted by Uncle Sam ' s transfers, the Rosecrans Flyers met the Bear- cats again, but on the Bearcat ' s home field, and suffered a 19-0 defeat. Journeying down to Warrensburg to close the season, November 20, Maryville met the Mules and returned home the victor. Twice, " Pinky " Pierson plunged over the line in the last quarter, to bring the score up to 20-13. Thanks to the spirit of the fighting Navy which carried over into the spirit of fighting Bearcats, the Green and White finished another successful season. [67 J FIRST ROW: J. Kempkes, B. Roark, B.

With no let- termen, except Jim Corken, late in the season the whole squad saw action in almost every contest. Navy lads, Borg, Moore, Foster, and Brown sparked the team for many a fast game. Starting the season December 9, at hlutchinson, Kan., against the Naval Flyers, Mary- ville lost 43-23. Stopping at Parkville on the homeward journey, the Bearcats lost that bout 20-17. On the home court, December 17, the Bearcats bowed to the Rockhurst hiawks when Drennan, the rugged center for the hiawks, led his team to a 36-30 victory. On December 26, the Green and Whites put up a terrific battle with the Hutchinson Fly- ers, but again came out losers when the score totaled 32-27. The exchange shots of Borg [ 68] and Spurlock of the opposing team kept the score in a deadlock for the last seven min- utes of play. January 7, the Bearcats revenged the former defeat at the hands of Park- ville by trouncing them 43-23. Then on January 18, the Maryville Cagers defeated the Hawks of Rockhurst at the Mason-hlolpin Court in Kansas City by a close tally of 33-31. Keeping up their winning streak, on January 20, Jerry Borg made a push shot in the last 15 seconds of play for a 33-3! victory over the Peru Bobcats. Despite Brown ' s five field goals, the Warrensburg Mules took Maryville for a 43-31 score on January 27, on the Maryville court. On January 31, the Olathe Clippers clipped the Bearcats 40-23. After winning over the Bobcats again 35-20, and losing to the Mules of Warrensburg and the Leavenworth Flyers 64-44 and 51-33, the Bearcats ended their season with a sensational vic- tory over former victors, the Olathe Clippers. Foster, always a steady start, went wild and tossed 13 field goals and 12 free throws for 38 points out of the 58-48 score. With only five wins out of the 13 contests, the Bearcats had a good season. Every game was a battle in which anything could happen, therefore, the outcome was always a surprise. [69] INTRAMURALS The intramurals this year re- volved around the rivalry of the Quad men with the Dormates, and every contest was a bitter battle to the end. It brought back mennories of the days when the fraternity rivals Taus and Phi Sigs, used to slug it out. The civilian boys were not left out, however, for during the Basketball season they got up a team and jokingly called themselves the 4-Fers. The biggest hit of the intra- mural season came when the ex- hibition boxing matches were held. With swollen jaws, bloody noses, cut lips, and black eyes, the contestants came up grin- ning and held that grin for days afterwards while they continued to look like escapees from a lo- cal morgue. The Baseball season followed in the spring and again the ri- valry persisted between the Stinky Quads and the Royal Dormates — or was it rivalry be- tween the Royal Quads and the Stinky Dormates?

OD NAVY HAPPY HOUR The C. P. O. ' s and A S put their heads together and decided to have a fun frolic to show what the Navy could do. The result was the Happy Hour, which, as the name inn- plies, was an hour filled with laughs for everyone. The V-I2ers appreciated the participation of the officers in the program — especially the vocal work of Chief Fuller and the jokes by master-of-ceremonies Chief Shura, and the audience laughed heartily at the typical orders shouted by Chief Croce. It just goes to show that even the C. P. O. ' s aren ' t such bad guys after all! An evening of fun was drawn to an impressive climax when a hundred sailors rose and marched down the aisles to stand at attention before the flag detail while the " Star Spangled Banner " was sung.

Musters in the blue of morning Towers grey against the sky And the striving for the finish Thoughts like these can never die. And the years will pass more quickly And the new songs replace the old And the hashmarks shall be added To the Navy Blue and Gold. But the rustic bridge at evening, And the Campus white with snow Will be etched upon your memory No matter where you go. All these things you will remember Milestones in a path you wore To your goal. Lit by the memory Of Campus Lights of ' 44. — Mrs. D. C. Shura. [80] CAMPUS LIGHTS OF ' 44 Gay costumes, glittering lights, gorgeous girls and giddy gobs, and music sweet and jivey to the strains of the Campus Lights orchestra, made up the delightful musical revue — Campus Lights of ' 44. This musical extravaganza, presented by more than one hundred students, under the di- rection of Yeoman Jack Budnick, comprised a variety of talent ranging from melodrama to the latest in tunes. [81] BOND DRIVE In conjunction with the nation-wide war bond drive, M. S. T. C. held theirs under the motto of " Buy a war stamp or bond and help select the Bond King and Queen, " and $4,500 in bonds and stamps were sold. Climaxing the drive, the Navy Ball was held at which Lieutenant Brown crowned Jerold Borg and Thelma Shively Bond King and Queen. [82] NAVY BALL " Welcome aboard the S. S. Gymnasium! " greeted the officer in charge. We walked up the gangplank, saluted the flag and found ourselves aboard a dream ship — blue sky overhead, and ocean waves around us, dancing to a Navy orchestra. It was a dream in real life. For doing things in the novel naval way this dance was the crowning example. For the first time we danced on the formerly touch-me-not-with-street-shoes gymnasium floor . . . for the first time we could actually purchase cold drinks on the second floor of the gym building . . . and certainly for the first time we imported a V- 1 2 band from the neighboring Teachers College, Warrensburg. Girl-friends from the old home-towns were imported, taxi company 502 had a very busy night, and an unheard-of amount of money was spent on corsages. A gala occasion for gay gobs, and glamorous gals. " Nuff sed! " [84] The Library, former sanctum sanctorum of study (no remarks!), has now become Naval Headquarters. The lower floor where the reserved books were kept now is full of books on Naval Reservists. There is much standing at attention, standing on the " carpet, " and standing in line for various things . . . The beautifully equipped Horace Mann School, too, is the place where sailors see films on " The Navy Way " . . . Sandwiched between these two buildings are two chiefs — and, what is it chiefs usually have around — Squaws??? Pardon us! . . . Upper right-handedly we see what potential naval officers should not look like . . . And didst know that petunias grew, and flourished in the urns in front of transformed Residence Hall in spite of the change to he-man residents?
