-Administration Building At Night it 49 by THE 5TUDEWTS OF — NORTH Wr5T MI550URI state: - TEACHERS COLLEGE MARVVILLC MISSOURI m m editor: HELEN FISHER BUS. manager: DAVID ARTHUR ART EDITOR : JEWELL R CE 1949 CONTENTS • FEATURES FACULTY CLASSES ATHLETICS ORGANIZATIONS FOREWORD This yeai- marks a century of prog- ress in these United States since the enchanting cry of " gold " was echoed across the nation from far-off Cali- fornia. History tells that with this exclama- tion of promised wealth, many people from every state in the Union started the weary journey across country to the land of gold. However, little reference is made to the solid citizens of the coun- try who chose to remain in their mid- west villages and help to stock the wagon trains that came out of the East to follow the Santa Fe, California, and Oregon trails. Today, people who graduate from the schools of Missouri are living monu- ments to the ' 49ers of old. Believe with us that this Centennial observation of the " gold rush " days finds Missouri, " The Mother of the West, " still a vital spoke in the wheels that make our na- tion flourish, and that her schools are no small part of that importance. DEDICATION To Dr. M. C. Cunningham, Dean of our college faculty, the ' 49er edition of the Tower Yearbook is dedicated. It is largely through his faith in the stu- dents that truly living and lasting work is made possible on the campus. Dr. Cunningham became Dean of the Faculty in 1945, and in the fulfillment of his duties there has gained many friends among the students and the fac- ulty. For the many blessings that he has bestowed upon us, we, of the staff, take great pleasure in making this ' 49er dedication to our good friend, Dean Cunningham.

Miss Smith joined Margaret Berry, Shirley Bur- ger, and Lois Walker in attending the queen. As trumpets sounded a royal fanfare the 1948 Tower Queen, Helen Fisher, pulled a ribbon which removed the covering from the imitation doorway of the College Towers and revealed the ' 49 Tower Queen, Julia Polton. In a formal ceremony Queen Julia and her attendants marched to the throne to the strains of " Pomp and Circumstance. " They were preceded by Chris Cunningham who carried the crown ; Karen Ringold, who carried the queen ' s bouquet ; and Jean Zirbel, who strewed flowers in the path of the honored ones. David Arthur, Tower Business Manager, performed the coronation ceremony. The five young ladies danced the Queen ' s dance with their escorts following the coronation. Blue spot lights and red and gold streamers enhanced the atmosphere as students, fac- ulty, and invited guests danced to the music of Bob Tebow and his Collegians. In one corner of the room stood a large sketched drawing of the College Towers. During the intermission, a short program was presented. Dean Steebe acted as Master of Ceremonies. Diane Dressier played a piano solo entitled " Lover " . With Rex Moyer as pianist and Norman Clouse as soloist, the two gave their rendition of " A Slow Boat to China " and " That Certain Party " . Mr. Steebe announced that Dr. Cunningham was to re- ceive the Tower dedication and Dr. Cunning- ham expressed his appreciation of the honor. Zea Grissinger of the Social Committee made arrangements for the dance, and Wil- helmina Edie planned the decorations. The Tower staff cooperated in helping the Social Committee plan decollations and promotions of the dance. David Arthur, Tower Business Manager, was chairman of the dance.

HOMECOMING OLD GRADS RETURN BEARCATS VICTORIOUS Homecoming week-end was ushered in Fri- day night, November 5, by a pep rally and a bonfire. Then came the variety show — con- sisting of talent-packed skits prepared by different campus organizations. First place went to the Alpha Sig-Sig Tau skit entitled " Memories " . The Independent Club captured second place with " Reunion " ; third place went to Intermediate Teachers Club for their pantomime, " Trouble With a Ford " . The clima.x of the evening came with the crown- ing of Homecoming Queen Maxine McDer- mott and her four att endants, Jeannine George, Beverly Henderson, Jean Short, and Lois Waits. After the show everybody ad- journed to Room 114 for a " Bearcat Brawl " to the music of Brad Moore and his orchestra. The Homecoming parade was held Satur- day morning. The prize winning float was that of the Tri Sigmas featuring a soapy bathtub with the motto, " Let ' s Suds ' em Under " . Second prize went to Independent Club, third pi-ize to A.C.E., and fourth to Foreign Students Club. These winners were chosen by the Maryville Chamber of Com- merce and were presented with cash prizes. Saturday afternoon was cold but bright and clear, and it was an enthusiastic crowd that watched the Bearcats triumph over the Kirksville Bulldogs, 13-12. A new feature of Homecoming which was added this year was the judging of houses. First prize for house decorations was cap- tured by the Sigma Taus, second went to Alpha Phi Omega, and third to the Delta Sigmas. Another feature of Homecoming this year was the trophy for the most campus participation — the grand prize of the week- end — won by the Sigma Taus, with the Tri Sigmas running a close second. Saturday night — the end of a perfect day — tired but happy gals and guys danced in the beautifully decorated gym to the music of Brad Moore and his Dream Peddlers. Sunday morning. Homecoming activities were ended with Chapel Services in the Col- lege auditorium. Page 15 Queen Maxine and her attendants. Winning .skit — Alpha.s ' n Taun. Mr. and Mr.s.

Page 18 YULETIDE FESTIVITIES HANGING THE GREENS In impressive ceremonies, the annual " Hanging of the Greens " was presented at Residence Hall, Sunday afternoon, December 12. While Betje McKown read the story of the origin of our Christmas traditions, the ceremonies were enacted. The candles were lighted by Irma Jensen who portrayed the Spirit of Christmas. Members of the Dance Club pictured the merriment of the old timers as they showed in the dance how they decorated their homes for the Christmas season. Page CHRISTMAS BALL Midst the rays of soft light and the strains of music, the Christmas Ball was held Decem- ber 13, in the college gymnasium. The gym was decorated with blue and white streamers and white angels, and sprigs of mistletoe floated over head. The center of attraction was a large silver Christmas tree which was lighted in blue. Music was furnished by Brad Moore and his orchestra. Refreshments were served dur- ing intermission. 19 WALKOUT DAY Just as everyone was about to give up hope, the long-awaited Walkout Day was an- nounced by the sound of the bugle. It was a good thing that the day finally arrived when it did, because it is doubtful whether the frayed nerves of the freshmen could have stood another false alarm. After all the freshmen were collected, they were paired off, rushed into line, and started on the long jaunt through town. The line was halted several times so that several of the boys could be relieved of the top part of their scalps, and a few mustaches were re- moved. Some very good demonstrations of buttoning and jitterbugging were also given when the crowd reached Main Street. Then everyone proceeded to the college pond for the traditional dunking where someone made the mistake of throwing in an upperclass- man. The boys were then introduced to upperclass rawhide in the belt line, and the girls scrambled to find their shoes which had been thrown in a pile. After this excitement, the whole student body enjoyed a picnic in College Park, with the exception of a few freshmen boys who had difficulty in sitting down. In the afternoon some of the freshmen were given a " golden " opportunity to display their talents in the afternoon program at the Tivoli Theatre. Walkout Day was completed in softly lighted Room 114 in the Administration Building, where tired but happy, fellows and girls danced to the melodic strains of Brad Moore ' s orchestra.

The Tower Choir, under the direction of Miss Dorothy Powell, and the Concert Band, under Mr. John L. Smay, are the major organizations. These two groups combined to present a musical Christmas assembly. The Tower Choir appeared in a Sunday Service during Homecoming, and presented a half-hour broadcast from KCMO as a part of a series of programs entitled, " Mid-America Sings " . The College Band appeared this year at the Teachers ' Convention, Homecoming cele- brations, and Maryville ' s " Harviesta " . The band also gave an assembly program which was followed by a two-day tour of high schools of our district. This organization plays at all football games, and selected musicians from the band form a pep band which plays at the basketball games. The String Ensemble is under the direc- tion of Mr. Thomas Pierson. This group made an appearance in connection with the Music Guild ' s Christmas Program. Selected mem- bers from this group are used for informal music at receptions and teas. The Quartet is made available through the P ' ield Service Director for ap- pearances in the various high schools of our area.

J. W. JONES Presideyit of the College Page 28 The Presulcnt ' s Residence A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT In 1849 men and women in prairie schooners crossed the state of Missouri bound for the gold fields of the far west. Along the way, the ' 49ers made many friends, and together these people worked and played as they pushed on toward the realization of their goal. As they banded into groups for the purpose of enjoyment, so the modern ' 49ers have formed fraternities, sororities, clubs, and other associations for a similar purpose. The early ' 49ers competed with their rivals for victories as our ' 49ers have done this past year. As those men and women on the long trek to California stored up mem- ories of all sorts of activities, from the most serious to the most ridiculous, so the men and women of 1949 through their progress have stored up memories of joy and sorrow, tears and laughter, good times and bad. The early ' 49ers washed the gravel, sorted the gold from the rocks, assayed their findings, and laid up their treasures. The modern ' 49ers have dug deep into the gold mine of events and have sifted the nuggets to fill their treasure chest — The 1949 Tower. The gold rush of ' 49 left a record of its many activities for the pages of history. The ' 49er Tower is another record of other ' 49ers. Here is the record of the friends you have made and of the many activities that have made this college year one of vital importance in your life. The early ' 49ers added to the value of their treasure chest by an ever e.xpanding search for gold. Today ' s ' 49ers may add achievement after achievement to the record by the util- ization of the treasure acquired during the years of college. Messages from faculty mem- bers and fellow students will add to the value of the treasure, but the greatest value will come from the accomplishments of the owner and his friends in the realization of their best endeavors. In the 1949 Tower the students of the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College have a bonanza worthy of the modern ' 49ers. Page 29 Left to Right: Mr. W. A.

BOARD OF REGENTS Selected by the governor from the nineteen counties in the Northwest District, the Board of Regents of this College is composed of seven competent men. These men work with President J. W. Jones to decide the most efficient course of action to further the inter- ests of the College. The Board of Regents plays an important part in the functioning of college affairs. Through their conscientious efforts, willing cooperation, and reliable advice, these men determine the best means of promoting pro- gressive education within the College. To their efficiency and loyalty the College owes much of its progress. DEAN OF FACULTY As Dean of the Faculty , Dr. M. C. Cun- ningham guides students through our school. Through nis efforts in counseling and guid- ance, the problems of individual students be- come golden nuggets of experience in the stream of life. Many is the warm friendship that has been created across the desk of this capable administrative officer, who serves as a vital link between students and faculty. Dr. Cunningham, who was formerly head of the Education Department, received the B. A. Degree at Westminster College in Fulton. Later, he traveled the rocky trail to the M. A. and Ed. D. degrees at the Uni- versity of Missouri. Before coming here, he was director of finance in the State Depart- ment of Education. When the rush through school fades into the past, when youth ' s goals and dreams develop into the realities of age, when college becomes golden memories, we are certain that Dr. M. C . Cunningham, who guided us past the timberline of graduation and out onto the unknown prairies of our professions, will occupy no small part of our pleasant recollections of the past. Page 30 Rnhcrt I . I ' ostcr Rfgis rar Harold V. Ncccc Husinvss MittuigiT REGISTRAR Mr. Robert Foster came to the College in the fall of 1948 to assume his present posi- tion as Registrar. In this official capacity, he takes care of grades, transcripts, and transfer records, as well as all other records of past and present students. Mr. Foster is a graduate of Warrensburg State College and has done graduate work at the University of Missouri. BUSINESS MANAGER Mr. Harold V. Neece serves the College as Business Manager. In this position, he handles the financial affairs of the College, including both the incoming and outgoing money of each organization directly spon- sored by the college. Mr. Neece received the B. S. and A. B. degrees from the Southwest Missouri State College and the M. S. from Oklahoma A. M. College. Mr. Lon Wilson D, ni fjf Men Miss M.nth.i L.itkc Dl ' ilfl (if W ' oDtCtl DEAN OF MEN Mr. Lon Wilson, Dean of Men, makes many contacts among the male students at the Col- lege. His friendliness is made known to all as he carries out his duties in counseling, housing, and student work program on the campus. He also .serves as superintendent of buildings and grounds. Mr. Wilson has the B.S. and M.A. degree. DEAN OF WOMEN Following a year ' s graduate work at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Miss Martha Locke returned to her counseling duties in the fall of 1948. As Dean of Women, she also schedules student labor, arranges the sports and social calendars, and super- vises the women ' s housing programs. Miss Locke has the B.S. and the M.A. degree. Page 31 PRESIDENT EMERITUS UEL W. LAMKIN The ' 49ers of a hundred years ago were hardy souls — prospectors. They sought the gold that was in " them thar hills " . They live in history because they made history. They made history because they dared, and because they worked. They sought the new fields, the new adventures, the new life ! Today ' s ' 49ers also face new fields, new adventures, new life — whether they seek them or not. The need for the pioneer to discover and develop America has never been greater. More fields are being opened every day by enterprising minds. The perfecting of devices that bring people together makes it essential that they learn to live together. When time and distance are overcome, the United States becomes really a part of One World. Life in America is changing every day — and the present ' 49ers must understand and direct and live it!— UEL W. LAMKIN. STUDENT WELFARE AND HEALTH hmUBMM Everett W.

Attending the school are chil- dren from nursery school through high school. The school meets the same qualifica- tions as other county schools, giving excep- tional opportunity for growth and develop- ment. Before a student receives his B.S. degree in Education, he must have had two quarters of teaching in the laboratory school. There- fore, it is necessary that the College revolve around the Horace Mann School. The administrators strive to make it pos- sible for each student teacher to have the fullest experience inside and outside the classroom to meet skillfully the problems of a teacher. It is necessary for the school to have mod- ern and efficient equipment as well as good methods of teaching. For this purpose, well qualified supervising instructors are assigned to each group of students taught. Each stu- dent teacher must observe and participate until finally he has full responsibility for preparing lessons and teaching the class. The student teachers have the opportu- nity of participation from nursery school through high school. Not only is the student teacher responsible to a college professor concerning his teaching methods, but he is also under the supervision and observation of the supervising teacher. Although the student teachers change from quarter to quarter, the supervising teacher insures con- tinuity in the Horace Mann classes. Each week a seminar is held for all stu- dent teachers. These are organized, and the president, with other members, selects the program for the quarter. Student teachers and supervisors may turn in a list of topics they desire to have covered. Many of the supervisors take their stu- dent teachers to observe other schools that have done outstanding work. Page 38 WHO ' S WHO Scott Bowen Jensen Steel Heck Bush Klang Long Moyer Fry Thomas Miller Gillespie Journeying from the valley of preparation, these people have approached their goal with outstanding records. Their time spent in our College has so enhanced the record set by their class that they have been chosen to represent our school in the 1948-49 edition of Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. Chosen by a faculty committee, they have been selected on a basis of contribution to the welfare of the school, as well as for their own personal development. Scholarship and evidences of preparation for the futui ' e were considered as factors in the selection of these honored students. Participation in school activities and or- ganizations helped them along toward the honor they have received. Their records, set in service to the school and contributions toward advancement of the good name and educational aims set up by the Administra- tion, will not soon be forgotten. When the task of completing college is attacked, we are told, " He who puts the most into it will derive the most benefit. " This same thing would presumably hold true in the competi- tions in all of life. Our wish for them is that they may not forget their trip through our school; that they may find faith in remembering the ways of striving they learned so well in .school; and that they may continue to earn other such honors.

With the addition of the browsing room, one may now seek a rendezvous with his favorite fictional characters, either in book or period- ical in comfort similar to that of his own fireside. From the office of Mr. Paxton P. Price, librarian, ideas for continued improvement flow regularly. Many students and faculty members have enjoyed the reproductions of fine paintings which the library has made available on a loan basis. Another feature in the caps of the library chieftains has been the addition of the In- structional Materials Bureau, under the di- rection of Mr. James Johnson.

The Braves struck pay dirt first, their score coming after they recovered a blocked kick on their own 33 yard line. James intercepted a long Brave pass, to set up the Bearcat tally. James went across the goal line after receiving a 25 yard pass from Butherus. Freeman was responsible for the winning margin by converting the extra point. MARYVILLE 14— ST. AMBROSE 18 The Bearcats opened athletic relations with St. Ambrose in a hard fought contest at Davenport, Iowa. Maryville gained the lead in the third quarter, when Weed plunged over from the 3 yard line. A moment later Pollard fell on a punt, blocked by Gamble for the second Bearcat touchdown. Free- man converted on both occasions. St. Am- brose came back to win the game in the last two minutes of play, with two touch- downs. MARYVILLE 14— SPRINGFIELD 13 In Maryville ' s first conference battle of the season, Freeman ' s accurate conversions again meant the difference between defeat and victory. After Gamble intercepted a pass, James scored on a 26 yard run. In the last quarter Weed blocked a Springfield punt to set up the winning touchdown. James re- ceived a long pass near the goal line from Richey and went over standing up. MARYVILLE 6— ROLLA 24 In a game played in mud and rain, the Bearcats wallowed with the Rolla Miners on even terms, until midway in the fourth quar- ter, when Rolla scored three times to win. In the second quarter, Weed intercepted a lateral and raced 56 yards for the lone Maryville score. Rolla also made six points in the second quarter and really opened up in the fourth quarter, to put the game on ice. MARYVILLE 27— ROCKHURST 13 The Bearcats ran up a 27-13 score over the Rockhurst College Hawks in a game, fea- tured by long Maryville runs. Weed scored first, by finding a hole in the line and tak- ing off for a 64 yard touchdown jaunt.

MARYVILLE 14— CAPE GIRARDEAU 6 Willi im Coulter The Bearcats found themselves in a four w.itcr Stanton Way tie for the conference lead, after their 14-6 victory over Cape. The Bearcats tallied first in the second period, as James went around end from the one-yard line. Cape also scored in the second quarter on a 45 yard pass from Abernathy to Halter in the end zone. Maryville ' s other score came in the third period after a 53 yard sustained drive. Weed went over standing up from the 8 yard line. The game was played on a soggy field before a Cape homecoming crowd.

A second half drive completely stopped the Mules. James scored in the first quarter on an off tackle play. The Mules tied the game in the second quarter on a 30 yard run. Butherus scored the second Bearcat touch- down. James ended the scoring for Mary- ville, with a spectacular catch over the goal line. The College was honored in having four members of its squad placed on the M.I.A.A. All-Conference team. They were William Gamble, Floyd Klang, Norman James and Marven Weed. Page 65 BASKETBALL The Bearcats got off to a good start during the early part of the season. At the Rockhurst tournament they soundly defeated the War- rensburg Mules, 47-36, in the finals to cop the tourney, after trimming Baker University, 54-48, and Rockhurst, 64-41. Wading through stiff competition, the Bearcats emerged from the Enid, Oklahoma, invitational tournament in the runner-up position. After squeezing past North Texas State 59-58, they subdued Phillips University, 57-52. In the finals, without the services of " Al " Henningsen, the Bearcats were taken into camp by West State, 58-43. " Pete " Younger and Jon Wohlford were selected for the all-star tournament team chosen at this meet. Maryville faced big time competition during the season, which was opened with a 39-59 defeat at the hands of a big, fast moving Nebraska University aggregation, who later became co-winners of the Big Seven Conference. On February 8, before a capacity crowd at the St. Joseph Municipal Auditorium, the Bearcats played the famed Oklahoma Aggies, rated second in the nation among university quintets. Henry Iba, Aggie mentor, was coaching at Maryville when Ryland Milner was a student starring in athletics on this campus. The Bearcats could not cope with the Aggies ' size and finesse, as they went down fighting, 44-28. The Bearcats show promise of a good season in ' 49 and ' 50. Paul Butherus and Don Scott are the only men who will be lost from the squad by graduation. This should leave a group well enough acquainted with Coach Milner ' s system of basketball to form a strong team. According to Coach Milner, the most improved player on his squad this year was not a letter winner but Tom Walker from Reading, Iowa. Great things are expected of Walker next season. " Al " Henningsen and " Pete " Younger were the most consistent point getters for the Bearcats this season. Hen- ningsen averaged 14.6 and Younger 12 points per game. Maryville finished fifth in the MIAA conference with three wins and seven losses. However, the season ' s record was more favorable with 13 wins and 12 losses.

" Co-Recreation includes women and men students as well as faculty members. The Co-Recreation Com- mission is composed of four women students in addition to the five men on the Intra- mural Commission. The women ' s main ob- jective is to stress and promote physical ac- tivities among the women students of the College. Phases of athletics held during the indoor season are swimming, volleyball, ping pong, and badminton. Golf and tennis are empha- sized during the outdoor season. This is the second year on the campus for the Intra- mural and Co-Recreation programs, but in- terest shown on the part of participants has given them a definite place on the College ' s extracurricular calendar. Coach Peterson is deserving of great credit for the initiation and the carrying-out of these programs. Top Rou-. Lorrn .Mdrlch, Wil- bur Pollard, Donald Hoffman, Elvin Teachout, Lawrence Zirbel.

Page 69 TRACK Since the Tower went to press before the ' 49er track season opened, the 1948 track season is reviewed. With six returning let- termen reporting for practice, Coach Milner started building his 1948 track team. The Bearcats first meet was the MIAA Indoor, held at Columbia, in which Mary- ville placed fifth. In their second outing, which was at Tarkio, the Bearcats were nosed out by Peru in a close triangular meet among Peru, Tarkio, and Maryville. In this meet Peru gathered 70 points, Maryville 621 2. and Tarkio 391 2- First place winners were Wormsley, Neil, James, and Zuchowski. The Bearcats found a winning combination in both the 880-yard and mile relays. The half-mile relay team was made up of Zu- chowski, Boyer, Carter, and Neil. The mile relay team was composed of Freeman, Jones, Waters, and James. Maryville traveled to Peru for her third meet, where the team again faced Peru and Tarkio. Peru was vic- torious with a score of 691 . points. Maryville was a close second with 6814, while Tarkio gathered 34 points. In Maryville ' s next home outing, Mary- ville defeated Graceland College, 871 2 to 471 2, as we won 13 first places out of the 16 events. In the final meet of the season, the Bear- cats were hosts to the MIAA conference teams. On a fast track, under ideal weather conditions, the Cape Girardeau Ind ' ans won their 13th consecutive outdoor track cham- pionship. The scores of the meet were, Cape Girardeau 591 .. RoHa 59. Maryville 45, Springfield 29, Kirksville 271 2, and War- rensburg 20. Alvin Wormsley retained his shotput and discus championships from the previous year, while newcomer Richard Schoneman cleared the bar at 6 ' 2 " to win the high jump. Paul Butherus pulled an upset to win the javelin throw. Vincent Zuchowski won the 100-yard dash with a brilliant 9.9 second effort. Lettermen of the 1948 season included Appleman, Boyer, Butherus, Carter, Daly, Freeman, James, Jones, Neil, Schoneman, Waters, Wormsley, and Zuchowski. Top Rotv.

INTRAMURALS Intramural sports, or " sports within the walls " , are receiving greater attention and recognition in colleges and universities than ever before. The intramural has " democra- tized " sports and has made a definite con- tribution to the physical welfare and inter- est of the mass of students. The aim of the Intramural Commission and the director of the intramural progi-am. Coach Peterson, is to provide facilities and, as far as possible, instruction in a large number of physical activities for as many men and women in the College as possible. Activities during the indoor season in intra- murals are basketball, swimming, volleyball, badminton, a free throw contest, and ping pong. Basketball is the major phase of the indoor season. A basketball plan is drawn-up at the beginning of the winter quarter. Three leagues are formed, and two rounds are played in each league. In forming the teams, anyone who desires to participate is enabled to be a member of a squad. The three or four top teams of the respective leagues are then placed in a tournament. The top teams of a large field are left, and a good brand of basketball is played. These games not only provide an outlet for the competitive spirit of the players, but also provide recreation for the large groups of followers of the va- rious teams. The winners of the tournament are awarded first, second, and third place medals. A similar plan is used in swimming, volleyball, badminton, the free throw con- test, and ping pong. During the outdoor season softball, golf, tennis, horseshoes, and track take prece- dence. The task of administering, promoting and scheduling this program is conducted by the Intramural Commission. Members of the Commission are appointed by the intra- mural director, and their appointments are confirmed by the Student Senate. Page 72 WOMEN ' S PHYSICAL EDUCATION The Women ' s Physical Education Depart- ment provides a program which gives the girls an opportunity to participate in many sports. This broad recreational program makes it possible for the girls to develop their skills in familiar sports, and also to in- crease their knowledge of other activities. Many and varied activities are included in the recreational program provided by the College. Marry dance classes are offered which teach the different types of dancing. These classes provide the opportunity for all girls to acquire a certain degree of under- standing of many dances. Indoor and out- door sports are provided for those who wish to participate. Elementary and intermedi- ate swimming classes allow the girls to de- velop a better understanding of swimming techniques. Participation in this wide selec- tion of sports offered by the Physical Educa- tion Department may serve as a means of relaxation. The Women ' s Physical Education Depart- ment provides for additional recreational ac- tivities offered by the WOMEN ' S ATH- LETIC ASSOCIATION, THE DANCE CLUB, and THE SIGMA PHI DOLPHIN CLUB. These organizations are provided for those who are interested in the athletic courses which are offered. Through the requirement of six quarters of activity for everyone, all girls acquire a degree of skill and understanding of several fine American sports.

Any person who has earned a major letter in track, football, or basketball is eligible to join the club. To retain one ' s membership, a member must pass at least three-fourths of his college load. Page Meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. Discussion is held on such matters as programs for the basketball or football seasons. Initiation ceremonies take up three meetings of the year with initi- ates chosen from the different letter winners of the major sports. A picnic usually ends the activities for the club in the spring of the year. 74 " M " 11. 1 I! im.i;ik;i:s .. «..;;■; jc.liii D.ilv,,!, AUfn I K-nniiliisi ' n, Villct-nl Zuclmuskl, I ' lrJ -iruii rr. l;„:i ' J; D.i.uii.- Nrll, iMink linv.r. CHEERLEADERS It is largely through the efforts of our cheerleaders this year that the student body has displayed such a great amount of pep and enthusiasm at all athletic wars during the progress of the ' 49er year. Seven cheerleaders were chosen by a com- mittee of student senators to lead Maryville ' s aggregation of Bearcat backers. One of the chosen cheerleaders, Mary Jo Marple, was injured during the fall quai ' ter wh ' le prac- ticing, and was replaced by Diane Dressier. Co-captains, Monty Pitner and Clyde Bowen, have given the leadership necessary to per- fect many unusual pep stunts. The cheerleaders were present at all home games, and they made an out of town trip with the Barkatze and Green and White Pep- pers to attend the Warrensburg football game. These people have given much of their time and effort to do an excellent job of cheerleading this year.

SOCIAL COMMITTEE Behind most of the all-student social activi- ties is the Student Social Committee. The committee is appointed by the Student Sen- ate. Zea Grissinger, chairman, together with the other members, has done much to im- prove the social act ivities of the College. A few of the major social events planned by the committee this year were " Sadie Haw- kins Week " , Christmas Ball, " Pep Dances " , and " After Game " dances. The ' 49er Tower Dance was also sponsored by the commit- tee. PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL Promotion of good will and cooperation between the sororities Tri Sigma, Alpha Sig- ma, and Delta Sigma, is the purpose of this council. The fall rush season for 1948-49 was offi- cially opened by the Pan-Hellenic tea, the first social event of the year. Under the auspices of the Council, a scholarship cup was this year presented the Tri Sigma soror- ity for maintaining the highest scholastic average for 1947-48. This year the Council became an associate member of the NPC. INTER-FKATERNITY COUNCIL Promoting mutual welfare between the two social fraternities on the campus is the purpose of the Inter-Fraternity Council. Dis- putes arising between the groups, or indi- vidual members, are settled by the council. Membership of the council consists of the presidents of the fraternities and three mem- bers chosen at large. Chairmanship alter- nates annually, going to the group which is entitled to a majority of members. The fac- ulty sponsor of the minority faction acts as advisor.

In April, 1948, the Student Senate con- ducted an annual all-school election for the purpose of electing student body officers and senators. Homer Long was elected president, and Fred Davis, vice-president. The new officers and senators were sworn into office during the second week in May of 1948. During the second meeting of the fall quarter, the secretary-treasurer and parlia- mentarian were selected by the vote of the other members of the Senate. The beginning of the fall quarter led to many activities for the Student Senate. In October, the Freshman dry-gulch, " Walkout Day " was conducted by the Senior class under the auspices of the Senate. During the year, the Senate kept a look-out on the Bearcat Den and the Student Lounge. It made recom- mendations for improvement in both, and carried out its part by sponsoring a " Lounge Clean-Up " . A major accomplishment of the year was the revision of the Student Handbook. As required by the Student Handbook, three hard fought elections were held during ' 48- ' 49 to choose student senators. The class elections were under the direction of the Senate. Action taken by the Senate this year has served to correlate the further cooperation among the organizations on the campus. Each (juarter the Senate is composed of four members chosen from each class except the freshman class which has two representa- tives. Page 78 NORTHWEST MISSOURIAN With a nuiih larger workinjr crew than the paper hn had for many years, the North- west Missoiiriaii staff oiuk ' avoi-ed to i)rovi(le the stiuients of the college, as well as the alumni, with interesting and worthwhile reading material in news style. During the past few years, the Missourian has become estal)lished as one of the leading college newspapers in Missouri. Under the leadership of Miss Violette Hunter, faculty advistr. the (luality and the iuantity of in- tei ' esting articles have placed the pajier among leading student pui)lications in many states. During the scholastic year of 1947-48. with I ' aul Gates as student editor, the Northwest Missourian was elected as the best Class B student newsi}aper in the Missouri College Newspaper Association contests. The papers were judged by members of the faculty of the School of Journalism at Missouri Univer- sity in Columbia. As a recognition of this honor, the Noiih- west Missourian was awarded a gold MCNA Clolie-Democrat Pla(|Ue which is to be held by the school for one year. Permanent pos- session of the pla(|ue is jiossible if a single school should win the award three times (luring the next si, years. Paul dates won the gold MCNA key as a recognition of his sports story which was judged to be of excellent quality. These contests have not been held for this year as the Tower goes to press. Much is expected, however, as the contest time ap- l)roaches. Reva Jo Kerns, editor, and Irwin Thomas and Wilbur Pollard, assistant edi- tors, have worked hard in their efforts to keep the paper on an excellent standard. The Northwest Missourian is a member of the Northwest Missouri Press Associa- tion, the Missouri College Newspaper Asso- ciation, and the Associaied Collegiate Press. It is published twice a month from Septem- ber through May.

Page 80 " TRl SIGMAS }) Alpha Ej siloii c-haiiter of Sitjnia Sigma SiKnia, an associato member of the National Pan-Hellenic Conference, has been an ac- tive organization on this campus since 1927. The aims of the sorority are to develop lead- ership, to promote unselfish cooperation, to develop .strong womanly character, and to establish among its members a perpetual bond of friendship. To open rush .season, the Tri Sigmas staged a party ba.sed on the theme, " A Haunted House. " Twenty-six girls were pledged as a result of the fall rush week. Homecoming soon followed with Tri Sig- ma capturing several honors. With the float, " Let ' s Suds ' Em Under, " they placed first in the parade, receiving both the Chamber of Commerce award and the plaque. Tri Sigma was also recognized as having the most alum- nae present at its Homecoming In ' The Homecoming Queen, Maxine McDer- mott, and two of her attendants, Lois Waits and Jeannine George, are Sigma sisters. Other events included on the Tri Sigma .social calendar were the Christmas Party with an exchange of gifts, the traditional " Sock Dance, " the Founders Day F an(iuet, and the annual Spring Formal. The girls also sponsored the " March of Dimes " drive on the campus. The Tri Sigmas were first to win the coveted .scholarship cup that has been .set up as a scholastic competition among the sororities. Dr. June Cozine is the sorority ' s sponsor, and her and helpfulness have en- deared her to every member. The Tri Sigmas year was complete when Julia Polton was crowned Tower Queen of ' 49.

Durinjr Homecoming week, the Aliiha Sig- mas cooperated with the Sigma Taus and won first prize for their entry in the Vari- ety Show. Their skit, " Memories, " gave flash backs of the different dances and songs of recent decades of American life. The annual American Royal Queen Con- test was held, and Alpha Sigma I ' auiine Cra- mer was chosen as Miss Maryville to repre- sent the city. Other outstanding Alpha Sigma activi- ties were a money-making rummage sale, the l ' " ounders Day Bancjutt, and the annual Christmas Tea given in honor of the Alpha Sigma Mothers. At the tea, given in the ii(ime of Ann Cumuli, there was a gift ex- ciiange. and a compact bearing the sorority crest was given to each Mother. Pati ' icia Smith, another Alpha Sigma, was one of the Tower Que en attendants honored at the ' 49 Tower Dance. The Alpha Sigmas have a new chajjter room on Frederick Avenue, .just a block or two from the campus. Many i)lans have been made there, including arrangements for the traditional Sweetheart Dance. Kathryn, Ali)ha Sigma i)resident, reigned over the event which was held at the Country Club on P ' ebruary 12. The last formal dance on the Alpha Sigma calendar was the annual Spring Formal. The Phi Phi chapter of Alpha Sigma AI- l)ha has been active on this campus since 1928. The big aim of the sororit.y is to estab- lish a sisterhood that will develoiJ its mem- bers intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

Page 84 " DELTA SIGMAS " Alpha Phi chapter of Delta Si ma Epsilon is a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and was established on this campus in 1947. The aims of the sorority are to de- velop character, scholarship, and leadership. In August, Doris Gillespie, Joyce Heck, Ruth Holbrook, and Norma Jean Scowden, journeyed to Biloxi, Mississippi, to attend the national conclave. A " Millionaire " rush party at the Tivoli lounge began the soror- ity activities for the year. Active members gave a Halloween pledge dance honoring the new pledges in the Bear- cat Den in October. During Homecoming the " Delta Theatre " won third place in house decorations and honorable mention for pa- rade participation. Christmas activities included the annual Christmas tea for the faculty women, a Christmas Bazaar, and a party planned by the pledges with Santa Claus and presents for all. The month of January was full of activi- ties beginning with the traditional " Snow Festival " filled with fun and dancing. The following week, one of the active members, Lois Walker, served as attendant to the Tower Queen. Also that month, Mrs. Harold Fields was initiated as patroness. During February, the national officer, Mrs. Polly Stout, paid the Alpha Phi Chapter a three day visit. Mrs. Stout is the national editor of the Shield, the Delta tri-yearly publicaton. The annual spring formal was held in April, and an installation of officers was held in May. To keep a tradition of the national organ- ization, several girls this year presented the chapter with a box of candy soon after their engagements were announced. Page 85 PHI SIGMA EPSILON Top Raw.

In honor of the oeiasion, a forma! Tenth Anniversary Dance was held at the Country Cluh with Fred SehwenRei, the national secretary-treasurer, and charter memhei ' s as honored guests. In a short talk, Mr. Schwengel emphasized and reviewed the aims and ideals of fraternity brotherhood which make such association enjoyable and jirofitable. Mr. W. T. Garrett and Mr. H. R. Dieterich have given much of their time and energy as sjjonsors and have done much to make the fraternity what it is today. In this year of the ' 49ers, eight new mem- bers and three new honorary members were initiated into the brotherhood. The three new honorarv members are Dr. Frank Grube, Mr. Robert F. Gee, and Mr. Paxton P. Price. An informal i)ledge dance in honor of these new members and pledges was held at the Coun- try Club with music being provided by a newly jjurchased radio i)honograph. A few weeks later, the pledges went through the tradition of " Hell Night " in the Horace Mann basement. Again, as in the past years, the fraternity put three basketball teams in the intramural tournaments. The fraternity had some of its members on the sponsoring committee of the school dances. The " dance of the year " was the an- nual Phi Sig Spring Formal which was the most awaited event of the year foi- the fra- ternity. Among other things, besides its part in the Homecoming Variety Show and the pa- rade, the fraternity held its annual break- fast for returning alumni at the Dream Kitchen, for the express purpose of renewing old acquaintances and making new ones.

Page 88 " SIGMA TAUS " Sigma Tau Gamma, the first national social fraternity to be orjranized in this country, was founded on the campus of the Central Missouri State Teachers Colletre at Warrens- burg, Missouri, in 1920. Seven years later, Theta Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma was installed on the Maryville campus. Prior to 1927, all Greek organizations had been barred from the campus, and it is in- teresting to note that it was through the efforts of early Taus that the restric- tions were removed. In ' 49, besides engaging in many fraternal and social activities, the chapter secured for itself .several distinctive honors. Together with Phi Phi chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha .sorority, the group .secured first place award for their Homecoming Variety Show skit; and, as an individual group, received first I)lace for their house decoration. In deter- mining the winner of the grand award based on skits, floats, house decorations, and alumni l)articipation, the Sig Taus were declared winners of the first leg of the annual Home- coming Award, a traveling trophy that has to be won three times by one organization to become its permanent possession. Many members of the chapter were promi- nent in inter-collegiate athletic activities, and the Taus were represented in intramural contests with teams of their own. One of the season ' s most enjoyable affairs, Sigma Tau ' s Rose Dance, an annual event, was held May 21 at the Maryville Country Club. A committee of faculty members .se- lected the of Sigma Tau who was chosen for her beauty, charm, and personality.

Page 90 ALPHA PHI OMEGA With an anticipation of an active ' 49er year, the Beta Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega began the fall iiuarter. Being a serv- ice fraternity, the organization measures its success by the service rendered to its campus, community, and nation. The annual Kail Smoker was held in the Dream Kitchen. As a result, fifteen pledges were taken into the organization, making a total of ai)proximately forty members. During the ])ast year. Beta Upsilon chap- ter has sponsored many service activities on the campus. Some of these activities were: erecting a s-gn at the entrance of the College; operating several concessions; serving as ushers at various conventions and assemblies ; operating a check room at the Homecoming Dance and Christmas Ball; aiding in the col- lection for the March of Dimes; and taking charge of getting blood for the Blood Bank. The chapter sent two rei)resentatives to the national convention in Chicago this year. The chapter went all out for Homecoming in the fall. It emerged with third place in the final total of participation. Memljers par- ticiiiated in the Variety Show, house decora- tion, and float festivities. The chapter pitched right in and received i)laques for second place on both the house decoration and the float. Although Alpha Phi Omega is essentially a service fraternity, it does enjoy certain social activities. The outstanding social events of the year consisted of a wiener roast held early in the year, a bancjuet in honor of new pledges, and the annual Formal Spring Dance which was held at the Mary- ville Country Club.

Page 92 CO-OPERATIVE INDEPENDENT CLUB The Cooperative Independent Club, a so- cial organization for those students who are not affiliated with any social sorority or fraternity, has been active on the campus for the past three years following inactivity during the War. At the start of the fall (luarter many new members joined the club. An all school dance was sponsored in room 114 of the College. The Homecoming float was a three tiered wedding cake topped by a miniature bride and groom. Four bridesmaids surrounded the cake, holding invitations to attend the wedding of Miss Victory to Mr. Maryville. The float was awarded second prize by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. The Variety Show also brought success to the Inde- pendents. A second prize plaque was won for their skit, entitled " The Reunion. " This consisted of a (luartette, Dick Appleman, J. C. Hall, Harry Elder, and Charles Clute; the Andrews sisters, ijortrayed by Herbert Awe, Dick Elliott, and Clyde Bowen, with Bruce Waikup acting as Danny Kaye. Dick Appleman did an acrobatic tap dance, which added to the variety. Social life during the ' 49er year consisted of a Halloween party with a prize being given for the best costume. At Chri.stmas an- other party was held. The third party of the year was a farewell party given in honor of Miss Judith Thom, sponsor of the club. Sev- eral " Swing Your Partner " square dances were given throughout the course of the year. At the beginning of the winter quarter. Miss Dorthie Hall, Mrs. Helen Gee, and Mr. Arlin Feyerherm were chosen as new spon- sors. Page 93 TOP PICTURE Top Rozr: Rnhcrt Miller, j. I).

BARKATZE The Barkatze is a pep squad founded on this campus seventeen years ago, and in- cludes both fellows and girls in its member- ship. The basic qualifications for member- ship are that students have the desire to attend athletic games and an eagerness to support the team, fair weather or foul, swanlead or duckknives. The uniform of the Barkatze consists of green jackets, white shirts, and green ties worn with white skirts or trousers. This year the Barkatze enjoyed their an- nual chili supper after which they held an initiation consisting of stunts performed by the initiates. One of the stunts presented this year at a basketball game was an exhi- bition of pyramid patterns. The Barkatze added much to the organ- ' zation when they corralled Miss Shirley Dieterich to be their mascot. The organization is sponsored by Miss Wincie Ann Carruth. Miss Carruth has been the " lead horse " for the Barkatze for many years and has helped to foster much of their spirit and enthusiasm. Page 94 TOP IMCTURK Top Rn i: iti-verly Johns.. n.

GKEEN AND WHITE PEPPERS This all-girl pep organization of Green and White Peppers, during 1948-49, has car- ried out the -cheering and sportsmanship which have made this College so outstand- ing in the past. Activities included shenanigans presented at halves of both football and basketball games ; the sponsorship of an " after game " dance; and attendance of such out-of-town contests as that with Oklahoma A. M. in St. Joseph. Participation in Homecoming events in- cluded a chili luncheon in honor of former members, and the building of a large Pepper float for competition in the Homecoming Parade. Following a hilarious initiation, twenty- two new members were added to the mem- bership. This gave a total of thirty-nine Green and White Peppers who cheered the Bearcats on to another year of victory. The organization was founded in 1927, and has been spurred to action for the past six years by Miss Bonnie Magill. Page 95 INTERMEDIATE GRADE TEACHERS The purpose of the club is to provide a fully rounded program for its members. The get-togethers are not only instructive, but every third meeting is devoted to an hour of fun and social activity. This year the club was the largest it has been for several years. It has been active in all College functions. Its skit placed third in the Variety Show, and for the first time, the Club was represented in the Homecoming Parade and sponsored an all-school dance.

Page 96 KAPPA OMICRON PHI Kappa Omicron Phi is a professional Home Economics fraternity for girls with hi h scholastic ratiiijr and hiph ideals. The Alpha chapter of Kajipa Omicron Phi was organized on this camims with Miss Hettie M. Anthony as founder, in 1922, thus giving our College the distinction of being the first chapter of this national organiza- tion. Miss Mabel Cook, who is co-sponsor with Dr. June Cozine since the beginning of the fall (juarter, was one of the seven found- ers. At conclave, Miss Cook gave the address at the farewell banquet. Dr. June Cozine, Miss Mabel Cook, Irma Lee Hull, Shirley Burger, Mary Loyce Rock- well, and Willa Breckenridge attended the eleventh National Conclave which was held at Indiana, Pennsylvania, August 12-14, 1948. Dr. Cozine had been National President for six years, 1942-48, until election at conclave. The annual Founders Day dinner was lu ' ld December 11, 1948, at the Home Man- agement House. Several alumnae members were present, and plans were started for an alumnae chapter. Kap|ia Omicron Phi worked .jointly with the Home Economics Club on various social activities throughout the year. A sack lunch was held on the President ' s lawn September 21, in honor of the new Home Economics majors and minors. The group also carried out the crafts project together for the de- velopment of the individual girl using tex- tile painting, knitting, crocheting, glove making, and making place mats and scuffies as the projects. The membership includes fourteen active membei ' s and seven pledges. One member, Irma Lee Hull, graduated at the end of the fall ((uarter. Mary Loyce Rockwell, Phyllis Combs, Betty Chandler, and Thelma Palma all graduated at the end of the winter quar- ter.

Page 98 HOME ECONOMICS CLUB I ' urposes of the ColloRr Home Economics Club are to promote friendship and genuine teamwork among home economics students, to develop good leadership and intelligent fellowship, to encourage creative arts, to encourage improvement in scholarship, to provide social, business, and professional ex- lieriences, and to cooperate with other local clubs, and state and national groups. In the fall, the president, Lavonne Wes- cott, and vice-president, Betty Curry, went to Manhattan State College, Manhattan, Kan- sas. They attended the National Province Workshop and set up the year ' s program. The theme for the year was the " Home Economics Girl in Crafts " . Such crafts as crocheting, knitting, glove making, textile painting, scuff making, tooling of leather, plastic works and the making of place mats were carried out appropriately. Joint meet- ings with Kappa Omicron Phi were held one Monday night of each month. Demonstra- tions of the various crafts were shown at these joint meetings. p]ach girl was responsi- ble for learning at least three of the differ- ent crafts. A rummage sale was held as one of the special projects in the winter. Part of the proceeds were sent to the American Home Economics Association to help sponsor the Foreign Student Scholarship Fund. Also contributed to the Permanent Headquarters P)Uilding funds, which will establish perma- nent head(|uarters for the American Home Economics Association with which Home Economics Club is affiliated. The annual May Breakfast was one of the spring events given in honor of the Senior girls by Kappa Omicron Phi and Home Economics Club. The clubs in the state of Missouri had an annual spring meeting in April at Springfield, Missouri. Representa- tives of the club attended. The climaxing event was The Silver Tea given in the spring. At this tea the crafts made throughout the year were put on exhibit. Many beautiful as well as useful articles were shown. AG CLUB Students who are majors or minors in ag- riculture, and other students who have agri- cultural interests, are eligible to become members of the Ag Club. Membership in the club is intended to enable students of similar background, interests, and training to carry on activities of mutual benefit. Mr. F. B. Houghton is sponsor of the organization. During Homecoming celebration, the Ag Club participated in the Variety Show with a barber shop quartet that was awarded fourth place. The club also entered a float in the Homecoming parade. In November the club attended the Ameri- can Royal Livestock Show in Kansas City. During the spring vocational agriculture and P F.A. contests held annually by the agri- culture department, each member of the club assisted with the contest. This year the club adopted an official emblem and coloi ' s. The emblem is a massive head of a beef bull worn on the back of a gold and black jacket. The bull ' s head represents one of the major livestock enterprises found in northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa, — beef cattle. This area, from which most of the Ag Club members come, is also noted for its black soil and the ears of golden corn piled high in the cribs at harvest time. The major activity of the club during the school year is the livestock judging contest, followed by the award banque t. The contest was held this year on April 14th with all members participating. Several classes of beef cattle, sheep, and hogs were judged and scores were compared with those of the ex- perts. Medals were awarded to the high point individual in cattle, hogs, and sheep, with a golden steer trophy going to the high point man of the contest. All awards were presented at the award banquet held at Res- idence Hall on April 22nd. Special gue.sts at the banquet included Dads of club members, administrative officers of the College, and stockmen who furnished the livestock for the contest. Speaker for the occasion was W. L. Barrett, of the Consumers Cooperative of Kansas Cit % Mo.

Page 100 ALPHA PSI OMEGA Alpha Psi Omega is a National Honorary Dramatics Fraternity which includes in its membership men and women who have had experience in acting and other phases of the theatre. The Kappa Sigma chapter has been active on this cami)us since September, 1947. As Dramatics Club members and inter- ested people in the speech department be- come eligible for Alpha Psi Omega, they are asked into membership by the old members. Having achieved this goal, however, they find that they have still a great deal to learn and an enormous amount of work to be done. Alpha Psi Omega is far from achieving anything near professionalism. It is merely comjiosed of people who have some flair for acting, an interest in theatre, and have shown a desire to learn more about it. During this year of the centennial observ- ance of the " gold rush " days, the organiza- tion has achieved much in lines of experi- ence and enjoyment of work in the theatre. With Zea Grissinger as president. William Elam as vice-president, and Betty Hudson as secretary-treasurer, the club has enjoyed many pleasurable hours of companionship as well as achievement. The organization, parent to the Dramatics Club, has combined its talents with those of the Speech Department and Dramatics Club to produce Rose Franken ' s " Claudia " , Thorn- ton Wilder ' s " Our Town " , and William Shakespeare ' s " The Taming of the Shrew " as major productions for the year. Work was also done in the line of experi- mental theatre. The small stage in room 113 has been dubbed " The Little Theatre " and upon it many of the experiments with the dance, the small play, skits, and black outs were done. At least one small experiment was done before an invited audience on the small stage. Charter members of the fraternity were Mary Clarke, George MacLellan, Sammy Carpenter, Betty Hudson, William Elam, Jean Bush, Richard Thomas, Joseph Roach, Ann Fay Espey, Zea Grissinger, and Verlin Thompkins. PI OMEGA PI Pi Omega Pi is a national honorary fra- ternitv whose purpose is to create profes- sional growth and a feeling of fellowship among students interested in the advance- ment of business education. Members of this organization are reciuired to meet high scho- lastic standards in business and education subjects. Of the sixty-six chapters in ex- istence over the United States. Beta Chapter was the second to be organized. Approxi- mately 50 student delegates attended the national convention in Detroit this year. Beta chanter was not represented, however. Beta Chapter meets semi-monthly to dis- cuss activities and questions concerning busi- ness education. Some of its activities include the publication of a year-book every second year, an annual breakfast for graduating seniors of Pi Omega Pi, showing of films for Commerce Department students, a Homecom- ing Luncheon for alumni, quarterly initia- tions, parties and discussion meetings. Dis- cussion meetings of particular interest this year were on the Future Business Leaders of America led by Mr. Buford Garner of the training school ; and on graduate schools with Mr. Harold V. Neece as chairman of a panel discussion. Pi Omega Pi is especially interested in keeping in touch with its alumni. In 1948 a new program of alumni dues was initiated to cover the cost of correspondence with alumni members. This new policy is also expected to give the chapter a more accurate list of alumni who are still interested in keeping in touch with the chapter. Mrs. Marjorie Pearson, commerce teacher at Mound City, Missouri, was the first to be a paid up life member. New pledges this year have been Frances Huntsman, Thesis Robinson, Mrs. Lois Rush, Curtis Hartley, Norman Clouse, Donna Har- vey, Marjorie Andrews, Marion Sherer, Ray- mond Schuster, Donald Kampman, Don Richmond, and Wayne Simmons. Honorary Members of the chapter are Mr. Buford Garner and Mr. Clifford Kensinger.

Page 102 FOREIGN STUDENTS CLUB The Foreign Students Club, lomposod ol " all the students that come from other coun- tries, is the smallest organization on the campus. It has just completed the second year of its e.xistence with seven members from seven different countries: France, Greece, Panama, Colombia, China, Korea, and Peru. In spite of the handicap in membership, the Club has jiarticipated in various activi- ties of the College and the community. The members of the Club feel that the objective of every such activity is the promotion of better relations among the peoples of the world. With this end in mind, the Foreign Stu- dents Club participated in the Homecoming festivities where its float won fourth prize for originality. Members of the Club ini- tiated a drive for clothing for needy students in Greece and China. During the drive for the World Student Service Fund, the mem- bers, with the help of other campus organ- izations, served a Chinese dinner, the pro- ceeds of which were given to the fund. Also, in connection with the WSSF drive, mem- i)ers participated in the carnival sponsored by the planning committee. All members had freciuent speaking en- gagements throughout the year in various schools and clubs in this part of the state, i)ringing some knowledge about their coun- tries and their people to their American au- diences. Every member feels that the crowning of all the efforts of the ' 49er club year came during the winter quarter when the mem- bers sponsored the program : " Crossroads on the Campus " , which was marked by a variety of activities. Exhibits, with subjects from different countries, were designed with the purpose of acquainting students and faculty with the art of foreign people. A recital with songs from different countries was given in the Horace Mann Auditorium. In a Wednesday assembly, three members of the Club set forth their views on the subject of: " Stu- dents ' Responsibility in Today ' s World " , and analyzed the philosophy of the peoples of other countries. Dr. Clarence Decker, Presi- dent of the Kansas City University, accepted the invitation of the Club and addressed a special assembly. VARSITY VILLAGERS This organization, whose membership is open to any College woman not living in Residence Hall, gives town women an oppor- tunity for student government, creates a spirit of fellowship among women living in town, promotes high ideals and standards of living, and creates leadership among col- lege women. The governing group is the Varsity Vil- lager Council which meets twice a month to discuss plans and problems as they arise. The Council is composed of the Association officers, a representative of each organized house and a -proportional representation of students in unorganized houses. The Dean of Women is the sponsor. Houses in which four or more girls reside provide sufficient numbers for organization. In these, officers and Council representatives are elected to serve through the regular school year, unless a change becomes necessary before the ex- piration of that period. The Varsity Villager Council works in co- operation with the Householders Association to maintain .standards of living acceptable to the College and the community. It is neces- sary that there be coordination between these two groups so that the highest possible standards may be promoted for the welfare of all. In ' 48- ' 49 the Varsity Villagers func- tioned only as a governing body, feeling that the activities provided offer ample opportu- nity for participation of town girls in a well balanced social program. It is hoped that the future will bring recognition on the part of town girls of their need to be an organiza- tion to promote a feeling of belonging to the College and its program. With or without a large organization, the Varsity Villagers have an excellent record of citizenship. Living a s they do in small eroups, they become several closely knit fam- ily units who have the advantage of a home atmosphere and an opportunity for coopera- tive living not afforded those who live in a dormitory.

Page 1 04 WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION The Women ' s Athletic Association was organized in 1925 on the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College campus, for the pur- pose of promoting a spirit of loyalty among girls, to encourage participation in healthful recreation, and to interest high school gradu- ates in the College. During the fall quarter, the WAA spon- sored swimming and minor sports. Under the capable management of Mary Booth, many girls participated in swimming each Mon- day afternoon. Red Cross Swimming Tests were given. A number of girls participated in tournaments in badminton, table tennis, shuffleboard, darts, and bowling, under the direction of Charlotte Turner. A double round robin tournament was held in basketball during the winter quarter, with Margaret Berry as manager. Four teams : the Jaybirds. Mary Booth, captain ; Ossie ' s Hot Shots, Beverly Osburn, captain ; the Stum- blers, Vee Oyerly, captain, and the Cold Shots, Joyce Wehrli, captain ; entered the tournament. The results for the first round of the tournament were: Stumblers — :} won ; Cold Shots — 2 won, 1 lost; Jaybirds — 1 won, 2 lost ; and Ossie ' s Hot Shots — 3 lost. During the spring quarter, the WAA was (luite active. A number of teams entered the volleyball tournament, which was held each Monday evening in Room 114. Delegates were sent to the National Convention of the Athletic Federation of College Women, held at Madison, Wisconsin, during April. The annual Volleyball Playday for the senior girls of the high schools of the Northwest District was held on Saturday, April 30. Thelma Oyerly, the Playday Chairman, used United Nations as the theme of the Playday, and the flags of different nations were u.sed to designate the various teams. The WAA had full responsibility of the " Snack Bar " for the recreation activities at the main gymnasium, held each Tuesday and Thursday night, and Saturday afternoon. Also, the WAA sponsored a " Saturday Work Day " whereby each member was responsible for earning a dollar to help finance the dele- gates ' trip to the NACW Convention. ASSOCIATION for CHILDHOOD EDUCATION The Association for Childhood Education is a student branch of a great international organization. It has for its purpose active cooperation with the home, the school, and the community, all of which are working in the intei-est of children. It seeks to promote desirable educational programs and prac- tices in the elementary school, nursery through the sixth grade. Meetings are held the second and fourth Mondays of each month in the Horace Mann kindergarten at 7:30 p.m. Subjects of inter- est and value to students planning to teach in this area become the basis for program planning. Dr.-M. C. Cunningham spoke at one meeting; at another, the room teachers demonstrated a day at Horace Mann. The past year ' s activities opened in Sep- tember with a Treasure Hunt for prospective members. On October eighth, the branch was hostess at a dinner meeting for Dr. Mavcie Southall, a past national president of A.C.E. At this time, initiation and pledging services were held. Also in October, the A.C.E., in cooperation with the American Association of University Women, sponsored the Clare Tree Major players in " The Poor Little Rich Girl. " A red letter day was November sixth, when A. C. E. was awarded the third prize for its float in the Homecoming parade. At that time, the organization was hostess to some thirty visiting alumnae at a luncheon at the Linville Hotel. The group was espe- cially honored by the Homecoming queen. Miss Maxine McDermott. one of the active members who attended the luncheon. Other outstanding social events for the year were the Christmas party, the Valen- tine party, and the May Morning breakfast for graduating A.C.E. members. Plans for a trip by bus to Salt Lake City, to attend the national convention dominated the members ' efforts through the year. Miss Chloe Millikan, director of Early Childhood Education, is sponsor of the or- ganization. Page 105 Top Row.

Paffe 106 STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Student Christian Association was organized in the spring of IDlf) and is a partnership composed of the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. It is interdenominational and to fui ' ther its goal on this campus the Associa- tion has largely devoted its labor and services to aiding i)rogranis on the campus and si)on- soring activities. The goal is seeking to pro e that Jesus Christ is Lord in education as well as politics, economics, social welfare, and religion. Members of the Association were on com- mittees and served as leaders in the Annual Religious Emphasis Week. The Association had its Regional Director, Miss Ruth Pack- ard, on the campus as one of the speakers during the week of rendezvous with religion. A new feature was added to Homecoming festivities when the Association sponsored a Chapel service the Sunday following Home- coming. At Christmas time the S.C.A. joined the youth of the town churches and spent an evening caroling. Students representing the College and Association attended a week-end woi ' k shop in Kansas City, Missouri. There, they studied interracial relations in that area. A student of the ( ' ollege also brought back to the Association many ideas and ma- terials from the World Churchmanship Con- ference in Lawrence, Kansas, during Christ- mas vacation. A second chapel service was sponsored February 20 by the Association to com- memorate Student World Day of Prayer. Dr. M. Earle Collins, President of Tarkio College, was the guest speaker. Representatives of the Association at- tended the Spring conference which the subregional council held at Moberly, Mis- souri. This meeting aided local Associations by acciuainting them with regional and na- tional activities and world situations. Plans are being made for several mem- bers of the Association to attend the Annual Estes Park Youth Conference this summer to gain both spiritual and material aids for the coming year ' s work. NEWMAN CLUB The Newman Club is an organization of Catholic students on the campus. Others who are interested and are accepted by the members may join. The club is a member of the National Newman Club Federation, and was organized on this campus in 1922. The Club sought to foster the spiritual, intellectual, and social interests of the ' 49er Catholic students of the College. Ideals held by the club are those of its patron. Cardinal John Henry Newman, namely, love of truth, sincerity, candor, intellectual honesty, hu- mility, courage, and manliness. Members of the club strive to aid the Church in its ' work whenever possible. Discussions, study groups, business ses- sions, lectures, and social events comprise the get-togethers which are held on alternate Tuesdays. These are a source of inspiration and knowledge to the members, because Cath- olic action in the world today is discussed, placing special emphasis on the role it plays in the student ' s life. Perhaps one of the best ways the club helps the new member is acquainting him with fellow students who share his religious aims and principles. This is a great help in becoming adjusted to college life. Also through membership in the club, the stu- dent is kept reminded of his religious duties, and he will not fail to practice them, as sometimes happens when a student is away from home attending school. The Newman Club was represented in the ' 49er Religious Emphasis Week by Dorothea Carter who was co-chairman of the central planning committee. Various other members contributed their services in an effort to make this week a success. Reverend Father Robert E. Graham is chaplain of the organization and the Misses Margaret and Katherine Fran ken are the sponsors. Page 107 COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CLUB Top Row.

Page 108 COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CLUB First organized on the campus ol ' the Northwest Missouri State Teachers C ' oilejre in the winter of 1946-47, under the guidance of Mr. Sterling Surrey, head of the Depart- ment of Commerce, the Commerce and Busi- ness Administration Club continued in the fall (luarter of 1948 with a membership of about seventy students and started off the activities for the year. As in 1946-47, the club this year has ad- hered to certain rules and regulations and to established purposes. These purposes in- cluded the creation of interest in and under- standing of the problems and affairs in the fields of commerce and business. They were further resolved to bring about a closer con- tact between the College and the community of business men and women. The develop- ment of leadership among students prepar- ing to teach commerce or to enter businesses of their own and the provision for social contact between faculty and commerce stu- dents i)layed no small i)art in rounding out the aims of the clut). During the year of the ' 49ers, the club held a number of social activities in addition to its regularly planned business meetings. In the spring of 1948, members of the club and their guests sponsored a farewell party for Mr. Sterling Surrey, Chairman of the De- partment of Commerce, who took a year ' s leave of absence from the College. Bob Anderson served the ' 49er year as president of the club. James Courtney served as vice-president and social chairman ; and Jean Jacoby served as secretary-trea- surer. Mrs. Margaret Neece, Miss Helen Johnson, Mr. Clifford Kensinger, and Mr. Buford Garner, all commerce instructors, were hono- rary members of the club. The Commerce and Business Administra- tion Club is sponsored by Mr. Dale Blackwell. DRAMATICS CLUB With the primary objectives of gaining valuable e.xperience, delving into the adven- tures of play production, and deriving sheer pleasure and amusement from the work, the Dramatics Club commenced the ' 49er year. The club members attending college dur- ing the summer of ' 48 collaborated with the Speech Department to present Rose Frank- en ' s " Claudia. " It was directed by Mr. Rob- ert F. Gee with the assistance of Lina Foster. In the first meeting of the fall quarter, the club elected William Elam as president, John Tilton as vice-president, and Betty Williams as secretary-treasurer. Mr. Gee, faculty spon- sor, immediately set the group working on plans for the Homecoming Variety Show. In the Homecoming show, the Dramatics Club ' s chorus line rode high with wild and mischiev- ous antics, and placed fifth in line with the judges of the skits. Thornton Wilder ' s " Our Town " was por- trayed by the club with the additional sup- port of the Speech Department and Alpha Psi Omega. John Tilton played the mem- orable role of the Stage-Manager. He was supported by a large, including Herbert Awe, Betty Williams, Beverly McCowen, Wil- liam Elam, Dorotha Adams, Zea Grissinger, Andy Runge, Charles Clute, Carolea Pritch- ard, Audrey Merritt, Robert Lister, Manley Vance, George Silver, Verlin Thompkins, Monty Pitner, and Bruce Walkup. Next on the agenda was " The Taming of the Shrew " by William Shakespeare. Charles Newton played the part of Petruchio, and Carolea Pritchard played the shrewish Kate. Others in the cast were Betty Hudson, Monty Pitner, James Pool, Herbert Awe, William Elam, Verlin Thompkins, Robert Lister, Bruce Walkup, Wavne Richards, John DeLay, Shirley Burton, Richard Miller, Betty Lou Hazelton. and Jesse Masters. Mr. Robert F. Gee, speech instructor, is sponsor of the club. He directed all plays and coached other activities of the club. Page 109 Top Rozv: Joseph E. Tolbeit, Willinni O.

The i)urposes of the ekil) are to develop student interest in inter- national affairs and to promote resi)eet for human rights and freedoms without regard to race, language, or religion. Membership in the International Relations Club is o])en to all college students. The members meet together once or twice a month to exchange views and opinions on current local, national, and world affairs. The only re(iuirement is that the students be serious in their efforts and realize that the future of the world is in the hands of the students of today. During the year of the ' 49ers, the club discussed chiefly the European Recovery Plan and the problems of the Orient, includ- ing the conflict between the United States and other countries in that area. In addition to the discussions by members, the organiza- tion entertained many guests who were lec- turing on the campus and kindly consented to visit some of the meetings. Since many of the members are studying to be social science teachers, this club gives them valuable experience in assimilating and presenting the philosophies that they have formulated in college studies. This training should help them i)re.sent the truth better and more fully to the public in years to come. Although the club is not a social organiza- tion, it does have many informal social get togethers throughout the year for members and their guests. The International Relations Club is under the sponsorship of Dr. John Harr of the social science department. The club receives assistance from the Carnegie Foundation which distributes news bulletins. International Conciliation Bulle- tins, and suggestions for programs and dis- cussions. Usually the club sends delegates to the Regional Convention. This year, however, since the convention was held during the week of Homecoming, the local chapter was not represented. KAPPA DELTA PI Kappa Delta Pi is a national honorary society in Education ; it is to education what Phi Beta Kappa is to the Liberal Arts Col- lege. Its purpose is to encourage high pro- fessional, intellectual, and personal stand- ards, and to recognize students who have made outstanding records. To this end it invites to membership such persons as ex- hibit commendable per.sonal qualities, worthy educational ideals, and sound scholarship. Such persons must be at least of Junior scholastic standing, rank among the upper quartile of the student body in scholarship, and be preparmg for the teaching profession. Kappa Delta Pi has four main ideals: (1) the ideal of science which means fidelity to the cause of free inquiry and to the ideal of verified truth; (2) the ideal of fidelity to humanity, the maintenance of faith in the improvability of human nature; (3) the ideal of service which is the spirit of education ; (4) the ideal of toil which means that through faithful work, life is given larger freedom and nobler vision. The emblem of the society is a key in the form of a scroll pierced by a stylus upon which scroll are imposed a bee hive and the letters Kappa, Delta, and Pi. The Zeta Lambda Chapter of the North- west Missouri State Teachers College was installed on April 27, 1948, with fourteen charter members. A formal initiation was held February 24, at which time nineteen new members were admitted. After the initiation a dinner was held at the Linville Hotel. Dr. H. G. Dildine was the speaker of the evening. His subject was " The Life of a Teacher. " Faculty sponsors are Dr. John L. Harr, Mr. H. T. Phillips, Miss Katherine Franken, Miss Grace Shepherd, and Miss Chloe Milli- kan. The officers are: President, Wanda Gray; Vice-President, Jean Bush; Secretarij, Helen Richardson ; Treasurer, Miss Kath- erine Franken; Historian-Recorder, Mr. H. T. Phillips; and Counselor, Dr. John L. Harr. Page HI DANCE CLUB The Dance Club, under the direction of Miss Wincie Ann Carruth, drew up its or- ganizational charter with the purposes of providing an opportunity for a graceful mode of self-expression ; to develop apprecia- tion of the dance in the art form; and to provide recreation for students interested in the intricacies of the dance. Many special programs have been given Elaine Andcrsun, Mary Bi)oth, Jane Bovard, Vernellc Cox, 7 reasitrer ; Martha Clymens, Betty Curry, Sarabel Davis, Virginia Elliott, Mary Margaret Felton, Betty Finncll, Margaret Gillett, Martha Hill, EInora Hennegin, Kathryn Krause, Beverly Mc- Ccwen, Marjorie McGee, Patricia Mclntyre, Secretary ; Joanne by Miss Carruth and the girls during the ' 49er year. Shows were given for the Home- coming Variety Show, Senior Day assembly, Play Day, Nurses Benefit Dance, and the traditional " Hanging of the Greens. " Various other projects of interest and im- portance to the girls have been accomplished during the year. One such project was an all school square dance.

Sigma Phi Dolphin Club is a reorganiza- tion of the Sigma Phi Swimming Club that formerly was active on this campus. The purpose of the club is to promote apprecia- tion of and participation in swimming ac- tivities. All members must successfully pass these requirements : one length of the following strokes in good form — elementary back stroke, side stroke, American crawl, back crawl, breast stroke; one length of duet rhythmic swimming using any of the afore- mentioned strokes ; one minute of treading using legs only ; one minute of motionless back float; front surface dive and plain standing front dive. Charter members are Marjorie McGee, Sarabele Davis, Mary Booth, Beverly Osburn, Norine Norris, Mary Frances Robinett, Marilyn House, Margaret Berry. Marilyn Judd. Thelma Palma, Leticia Pinzon, Juan- ita Ford, Betty Allen, and Jeannine George. The sponsor is Miss Jessie Jutten. On January 6, ' 49, the Dolphins gave a rhythmic swimming demonstration during the swimming meet. In the spring quarter, the club gave a colorful water show, and during the latter part of the spring quarter they gave their show at the YWCA in St. Joseph. Page 113 TOWER STAFF Under the direction of Editor Helen Fisher, the caravan of members of the ' 49er Tower Staff set out upon the long, hard journey to completion in the fall of 1948. Along the way toward this golden achieve- ment, we met with many obstacles, large and small. To help combat them, each member of the staff had to assume a particular share of work as his own. David Arthur contributed his share for the trip by shouldering the responsibility for the funds appropriated for the Tower. Jewell Rice gave his artistic appreciation in order that everyone might know the beauty of the trip we made. Mary Lou Laughlin as Assist- ant Editor helped the Editor in her work. Along the path taken, decisions had to be made concerning the editorial policy of the staff, and to this job William Elam made his contribution. Betty Hudson, Copy Editor, carefully assembled script for organizational write-ups. In his role as Sports Editor, Dick Appleman played a difficult part and added much to this section of the book. Senior activities were recorded by Dick Gordon, and Margaret Ford reported on the school activities. Complete indexing was done by Ruth Holbrook. Wanda Praiswater assembled information concerning the fac- ulty, and Lee Hoover served as overseer of final typing. The staff wishes to thank Charlene Welsh and James Hill who created the drawings of ' 49ers used throughout the book ; Gaylord Headrick and Doris Jean Hamilton, student photographers ; and Miss Dorthie Hall of the English Department for her work in copy- reading. Last but not least, by far, to Mr. Howard Ringold, who sponsors the staff and stands ready always to lend a helping hand, the staff expresses a deep appreciation for his as- sistance.
