Missouri Contents FEATURES ORGANIZATIONS CLASSES ATHLETICS FACULTY Foreword Let us review this year of progress by taking a trip around our campus. We see the Ad Build- ing with its beloved towers, Horace Mann, the library, the home management house, Residence Hall, Men ' s Quads, the gym, our Memorial Stadium, and the foundations of our new build- ings. We see trees, shrubs, flowers, and stretches of green grass. We have combined architectural beauty with natural beauty on our campus. Our campus has had years of planning behind it. First it was a set of blueprints sketched from an idea. Then builders came to map out the grounds and erected our present buildings. They kept in mind the strength and durability these buildings should have. Now let us look at ourselves. We are in col- lege because of an idea changed into a blueprint — a blueprint for educating ourselves. Now we are putting that blueprint to work. But we must remember that a blueprint is useless if it turns out defective material. So we, of the 1951 Tower, challenge you, the students of MSC, to spend your college days in building strong, sturdy characters from your col- lege blueprint. Page 4 Dedication Dr. Harry Dildine has been chosen by the Tower Staff as the person to whom the Tower is to be dedicated this year. Dr. Dildine has been a member of our faculty since September of 1928, twenty-three years ago. During those years he has served the stu- dents as a good friend and personal adviser. Before coming to this college, Dr. Dildine and his family lived in China. He was stationed there as a missionary for nineteen years. This ex- perience has directly benefited the college, be- cause from his knowledge of Asia, he provides the history course concerning the Far East. He is interested in enlarging the student ' s outlook on life through his courses. Dr. Dildine received his B.A.. M.A.. and Ph.D. at Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois. The latter degree is in the field of Asiatic His- tory. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa fraternity. Pages Sharlis Marple 1951 Tower Dance To a fanfare of blazing trumpets, Miss Sharlis Marple stepped through the Tower arch of 1951 and assumed the title of Queen of the Tower. Through the arch with Queen Sharlis came Bill Ogden, who was chosen King of the Tower. The king this year was elected by the girls who at- tended the dance, and the queen was elected by their escorts. The coronation ceremony was conducted in a setting of maroon and gray, with the royal thrones as the centers of attraction. Directed to the thrones by the long path of white carpet unrolled by pages Tim Johnson and Leland Long, Miss Carol Lafferty entered with the queen ' s bouquet. Next came the bearers of the crowns, Carol Knittle and Pat Harr. Directly preceding the King and Queen came Mary Gib- son, who strewed rose petals along the royal path. Following the King and Queen came the attendants, Beatrice Straight, Elaine Hunt, Paul Tobin, and Kurby Lyle. who made up the royal court. Dick Gordon, editor of the 1951 Tower, pre- sided over the coronation ceremony. Miss Mary Lou Rockwell, Tower Queen of 1950, was pres- ent to concede her crown to the incoming queen. Mrs. Julia Grissinger, Tower Queen of the 1949 Tower, was also present as a special guest. After the crowning of the pair, the royal dance was played for the king, queen, and attendants. Decorations were set in a mode of three shades of green, highlighted by tall towers. Artificial walls of green continued the theme of the Tower Club. Dick Gordon announced the dedication of the 1951 Tower to Dr. Harry Dildine. a professor at our college. Dr. Dildine has done much for this college, and has shown an active interest in the students during his years of service. Miss Jo Ann Magnuson and Miss Nadine Cramer introduced the guests to the line, which included Dick Gordon and Miss Bedonna White, Dr. and Mrs. Jones, Joe Collier and Miss Mary- belle Bast, and Mr. and Mrs. Howard Ringold. Jewell Rice was in charge of decorations for the dance, Don Davis, Alyce Whitlatch, Joe Collier, and Dick Gordon planned the coronation ceremony, and Nadine Cramer was in charge of the refreshments. Music for the evening was supplied by Bryce Pulley and his band. Beatrice Straight and Paul Tobin Kurby Lyle and Elaine Hunt Page 9 Tower Dance Page 10 Tower Dance Page 11 Junior-Senior Prom Page 12 FEATURES Walkout Da y " For Whom the Bell Tolls " became a startling reality for our poor, bewildered greenhorns on October 5, 1950. At the tolling of the college bell, their fate was sealed. Giant M-Club men blocked every available exit of the Ad Buildmg, penning the Freshmen (and the upper-classmen) in, without giving them a chance to run for their lives. The victims were herded down the College Drive and escorted to the steps of the courthouse. Many curly locks had to be sheared as the order of the day, and Max and Morris performed their duties to the nth degree. Skull caps became popular with the Freshmen boys. Green beanies flew when a hat relay was held on Main Street. No one was hurt seriously, but more than one good cap bit the dust. Page 14 Walkout Day After the traditional buttoning ceremony was duly executed by our Greenies, everyone made a fast retreat to the College Pond. A beautiful exhibition of belly flopping was presented by the Freshmen fellows with the help of one young- looking Sophomore. It was really not as satisfy- ing as it should have been . . . the upper classmen were standing out in the rain! During the swimming party, a small, green snake was exhibited free of charge for the enter- tainment of the girls. This diversion seemed to be greatly appreciated. After our Freshmen were duly initiated, an all- school picnic was given on the tennis court to show them we really were human. " For Whom the Bell Tolls " ... it pealed loud and long for the Freshmen that day. We hope it will be one of the many pleasant memories they have about their college daze. Page IS Life at Dorm Page IK Life at Quads Page n Registration Day A well known custom on every college campus, mcluding MSC. is that of Registration Day. Christmas comes but once a year, but Registra- tion Day rolls around four days out of the 365. " Registration " is an all inclusive term which covers many items such as finding your advisor, agreeing with him on a prescribed course, obtain- ing permit slips, and keeping enough ink in your pen to fill out the needed cards and booklets. If you have survived this far, you join a line which wends its way through the gym, and in which you deposit your money, reducing you to the state of a pauper once more. One more item — registration usually mcludes a school get-together that evening, such as a party or a dance. So you see, it wasn ' t so bad after all, was it? , C , ' Page IS Hanging of the Green One of the many traditional activities at MSC is " Hanging of the Green, " presented each year by the girls of Residence Hall, and the Dance Club, On Sunday afternoon, December 18, 1950, a choir of girls ushered in the Spirit of Christmas, portrayed by Dolora Reed. The Reader was Louise Wintermute, and Bearers of the Greens were Norine Norris, Isabel Nash, Jane Costello, and Thesis Robinson. Mary Kinman played the part of the Spirit of Misrule, This ceremony officially declared the Christ- mas holiday on our campus. Christmas Ball In the setting of a red and white wmter scene, students, faculty, and guests danced to the tune- ful music of Bryce Pulley and his band at the Christmas Ball, The Ball, which was our first formal of this school year, was held December 16, 1950. Jim Hill was in charge of decorations Marge Elam handled the refreshments, and Ter " JVJoah arranged the intermission program. Joy . ,-fe " Smith was in charge of ticket sales. Bob Guthland, General Chairman, and his four assistant chairmen, again made one of the year ' s main events a success. Pagf 19 ' m r J jg Band A highlight during the Bearcat football season is our marching band. The band carries the colors of Big Green onto the field during the half time periods, and presents entertaining drills. The columns of green and white uniforms which form the formidable Maryville M are a thrilling sight to the spectators. During the basketball season selected musicians form a pep band which plays at all home games. The band is under the baton of Mr. John Smay. It has rapidly grown into a splendid or- ganization under his four years of leadership. During the winter and spring quarters the personnel of the band is reduced to sixty pieces. This is now the concert band, ranked as one of the five concert bands in the state of Missouri. The concert band presents numerous concerts in the communities of Northwest Missouri, bringing the people in these communities good entertainment. Considerable emphasis is placed on high school band literature a nd student conducting for the music majors. From Circle: Franklin Mitchell, Faculty: Helen McDonald. W. A. Brandenburg. Faculty; J. B.

It also affords en- joyment for the lay student who sings or plays an instrument. Included in the music depart- ment is the College Orchestra. Mr. Donald Sand- ford, director of the orchestra, is a welcome addition to our campus. He is doing much to interest the students of music in this special field of study. The orchestra, which is not a regular class, meets twice weekly for rehearsals. Composed primarily of string players, the orchestra is aiming at a revitalized interest in orchestral work. The orchestra is affectionately known to many of us as the " Nodaway Symphony. " Its outstand- ing work for this school year was its capable handling of the orchestral score of " Down in the Valley, " Kurt Weill ' s American folk opera. The opera was produced by the Tower Choir. Although relatively in its infancy, the orches- tra has shown that it is capable of outstanding work. It is hoped that in the future the orchestra will be able to present many more programs for the students and faculty of this college. . TOWER Front Row : Dee Lippincott, Elaine Hunt.

Page 22 ORGANIZATIONS li aftSr To ver Staff Meet this year ' s Tower staff, the students who made this annual possible. They have tried to give you, the students of this college, an annual which would deserve your praise. If you have any comments or suggestions, let them be known, and next year ' s staff will try to mclude your ideas in next year ' s Tower. They recognize the fact that change means progress and pro- gress means change. So help them give you the annual you want. This year ' s editor is Dick Gordon. Dick has earned the respect of the Tower staff, who have enjoyed working with him during this year. The entire life of the annual, from the first rough plans to the finished product, was under his supervision. Supporting Dick were the Tower staff and Mr. Howard Ringold, faculty adviser. Dr. Frank Grube has ably assisted the Tower staff as Literary Adviser. Lucille Steinhauser was assistant editor; Joe Collier served as business manager; Jewell Rice was the all important art editor, assisted by Beverly Crane, who served as assistant art editor. Mildred Maxon was index editor; Nadine Cramer was in charge of editorials; Mary Ellen Daniels served as faculty editor; and Alyce Whit- latch was in charge of all copy. Virginia Bird was class editor; Frank Babb was sports editor; and Margie Lewis was organization editor. Our two typists who had the job of typing the copy for the printers were Don Davis and Jean Hansen. Countless others have helped in num- erous ways. We of the Tower would like to take this opportunity to present to you, the people who make up NWMSC, this 1951 Tower, with the hope that it meets your expectations and merits your approval. Page 24 Student Senate The Student Senate is the student governing body of the college. Its chief purpose is to pro- mote and regulate general campus activities. The Senate is composed of a president and vice-presi- dent elected by the student body, and four representatives from the upper classes. The Freshman class contributes two Senators. For the school year of 1950-51, the students elected Max Kinney president, and Walt Stan- ton vice-president. The new officers and repre- sentatives were sworn into office in April, 1950. The Senate elected for its secretary, Jo Magnuson, treasurer, Herbert Awe, and parlia- mentarian, Wilbur Pollard. The first function of the Senate in this school year was to assist the College Counselor in freshmen " scuttle butt " sessions. In these ses- sions, the freshmen were introduced to our college traditions. During the Fall Quarter, the Senate sponsored " Walkout Day " under the leadership of the Senior senators, Wilbur Pollard and John Pope, assisted by the " M-Club. " Also during the Fall Quarter, members were appointed to Social, Co- Rec, Student Assembly, and Student Affairs Committees. One of the outstanding achievements of the Senate was its handling of the concession stand at the Homecoming football game. With the assistance of freshmen volunteers the senators were able to net a majority of their required earnings for the year. In the winter Quarter, the Senate sponsored the World Student Service Fund drive on the campus. The money contributed to this cause is used to aid foreign students in obtaining an education. The Senate was responsible for the rejuven- ating of the Student Union committee. Through the efforts of this committee and the Senate, movies, games, cards, and dancing were made available to the students over the weekends in the Bearcat Den. Top Row: Max Kinney.

Panhellenic Council The Panhellenic Council is an organization composed of the presidents of the three sororities and two representatives from these respective organizations. This group has for its objectives: to furnish a forum for the discussion of all matters of inter- est to the sororities on the campus; to establish standards of excellence along every line of en- deavor — as an organization, as a factor in school, as a force in the lives of graduating members; to define a code of sorority ethics; and to serve as a court of final appeal in case of local Panhellenic difficulties. The council sponsors the Panhellenic tea each year honoring all college women interested in social sororities. This is the opening of official rush week. Intra-Fraternity Council The Intra-Fraternity Council is a fraternal body, made up of the presidents of Phi Sigma Epsilon and Sigma Tau Gamma, and three mem- bers chosen at large. The Council ' s work is intended to make co- operation between the two fraternities more real and to offer a place where cooperative ventures may be discussed. Also, it has been able to suggest ways and means of better service to the fraternities. All have confidence in the representatives sent to make up the personnel of the Council and work progresses smoothly. Fraternities can only render significant service to the college and their own members under the direction of a coordinating body and this Council strives to aid the organizations in that effort. Social Committee Registration dances, freshman " mixers, " and after-game dances were only a few of the activi- ties planned by the Student Social Committee. The most entertaining dance of the year was the annual Sadie Hawkins ' dance, inspired by the famous Al Capp characters. The boys were kings for a week previous to the evening of dancing " Dogpatch " style. The gala event of the year was the Christmas Ball, presented each year on the last Saturday night before vacation. The dance was outstand- ing because of its gaiety, holiday spirit, and color. Also, the committee co-operated with the Tower staff to make the Tower dance one of the high- lights of the year. Music was provided mainly by the orchestras of Bryce Pulley and Jack Moore. Page 26 Northwest Missourian The editor and staff of this year ' s Northwest Missourian have capably achieved their goal of providing an interesting and worthwhile news- paper for the college students, alumni, and a number of annual subscribers. The Missourian has established itself as one of the leading college newspapers in the state of Missouri, under the leadership of Miss Violette Hunter, faculty adviser. The quality and quan- tity of the articles in the Missourian have given it a high place among student publications in many states. With Paul Gates as editor in 1947-48, the Northwest Missourian was elected the best Class B student newspaper in the Missouri College Newspaper Association contest. The judges were members of the faculty of the School of Journal- ism at Missouri University in Columbia. In 1948-49, the staff, with Reva Jo Kerns as editor, produced another winner. Again our newspaper was judged the best Class B student newspaper in the Missouri College Newspaper Association. The grand finale came in 1949-50, when, with Herbert Awe and John Price as co-editors, the Northwest Missourian staff produced another year of fine papers capable of winning first prize again. Thus we have been on top three years in a row. As a result, the Northwest Missourian has been permanently awarded the MCNA Globe- Democrat Plaque, in recognition of its continued superiority among college newspapers. This year ' s editor, Herbert Awe, plans to enter the Northwest Missourian in the state contest again. He and his staff hope that this fourth year may keep the record established the three preceding years. The Northwest Missourian is a member of the Missouri College Newspaper Association, the Columbian Scholastic Press Association, and the Associated Collegiate Press. It is published twice a month from September through May, The members of the Northwest Missourian staff can well afford to be proud of their efforts. The students and the administration of this col- lege share their pride. Front Row: Mary Ellen Daniels. Henrietta Hoffmcister. Violett; Hunter. Adviser: Herbie Awe, Editor: Susan King. Jim Montague.

Come and join the sea- faring Deltas on their tour of the record smash- ing year of 1950-1951. The beginning of the year exploded into a whirl of breath-taking activities. First and fore- most was the National Conclave in Chicago, where Dolora Reed and Bedonna White did the honors for local Alpha Phi Chapter. The acqui- sition of a chapter room with a hint of the Oriental was just another evidence of our pro- gress. Appropriately enough, it was named " Hsieh Chin Tang " (Ask a Delta how it ' s said!!). Founder ' s Day on September 23 was observed by all the actives, and each wore white for the occasion. Rush week was climaxed by the " Delta Cruise of a Lifetime, " in which the rushees encircled the world on the good ship " U. S. S. D. S. E. " Serving as ports of call were the homes of all our patronesses. Homecoming plans proved highly successful as the Delta Sigs placed third in overall Home- coming participation. In the Variety Show we found ourselves steaming along on the " Delta Sig Showboat " while our float, " The Bearcat Vic- tory Belle " rang up another point in our favor. The traditional Christmas tea for faculty women was held in the lobby of Residence Hall during the holiday season. The highlight of the winter quarter was the journey into a winter wonderland at our traditional " Snow Festival " that was held at the Country Club for all pledges, actives, and their guests. The scene of our Spring Formal was a country garden, where our Queen of the May was crowned. Ending the year ' s cruise we celebrated our chapter ' s birthday by giving a dinner dance. And so the Delta Sigs bid " Bon Voyage " to an- other school year. What a great trip!! Page 29 Alpha Sigma Alpha Front Row: Jo Ann Lynch. Shirley Jennings. Lois Jean Fulton. Lorita Young.

The Supremacy Trophy awarded to us. " We ' ll lick ' m " was our ASA float (The girls with lollipops needed a coat). " Eat ' m up " was our gay house theme — Congrats ' , Chairman Young, it was a dream! And " Make-Up Madness ' was our ASA skit. Needless to say, Condon made a hit. Our Texas belles, Polly and Nadine, Were lovely attendants to the Queen. Founder ' s Day Banquet was enjoyed once more By actives, pledges, and alumnae galore. Our pledges were honored with the Taus At a western dance for just that cause. Campus activities in Religious Emphasis Week Brought ASA Reverend Garlich to speak. " Come as you are, " said pledges to actives " To a seven o ' clock breakfast " — that ' s a factive! To honor our mothers, a Christmas Tea, ASA tradition that always will be Held so close to our hearts as dear. Echoing wishes of Christmas and all New Year! Our Sweetheart Dance foretold many things With the revealing of engagement rings. Norine Norris was our Sweetheart fair She was by far the loveliest girl there. Our dance that came in early spring With formals and flowers, a beautiful thing. And now as we glance back with cheer, ASA looks forward to another year.

Page J2 Sigma Sigma Sigm a The twenty-fourth year of the Alpha Epsilon chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma was a very suc- cessful one. For the third consecutive year, Tri Sigma won the scholarship cup, which it will retain as a permanent possession. The social whirl of the year was opened with the traditional " Toad Skip, " a dance in honor of Delta Sigma Epsilon and Alpha Sigma Alpha sororities. To open rush season, the Tri Sigmas staged a party based on the theme of " Sigma Dude Ranch. " Thirty-one girls were pledged as a result of the fall rush week. Reigning over Homecoming activities was Tri Sigma, Mary Bauman. Joyce Smith and Mary Beth Fries, both Sigma sisters, were attendants to her court. This year ' s float captured a first prize for beauty. Later social events of the year included the " Turkey Trot, " a Christmas party, the " Sigma Sock Hop, " and a Valentine Tea in honor of our mothers. In January, Tri Sigma ' s Sharlis Marple reigned as Queen of the Tower Dance of 1951. Founder ' s Day was celebrated on April twentieth with a formal dinner. The last social event of the year was the Spring Formal at the Country Club. Five members — Sharlis Marple, President; Marilyn Alexander, Treasurer; Diane Dressier, Secretary; and two Sigma Sisters, Betty Ann Wilson and Virginia France, attended the Na- tional Convention in June at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. They were chaperoned by our alumna advisor and past president, Helen Fisher Mutz, who received the Mabel Lee Wal- ton Leadership Award at the Convention. We attribute much of the success of the year to the diligent work and interest of our faculty sponsor, Dr. June Cozine. Page 33 A. P. O. Front Row : Myri D.

Page 34 Alpha Phi Omega W iTmrMmmxmBMMMWs Beta Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega began its year of activities with a smoker for prospective pledges. Other activities in which the organization participated during the year were: taking part in Homecoming, operating a concession stand during one of the football games, publishing the student directory, and sponsoring the blood bank. We also sponsored the March of Dimes campaign by holding the Ugly Man contest in which voting was done by contributing to the March of Dimes. Alpha Phi Omega, being a service fraternity, opens its membership to members of the pro- fessional, honorary, and social fraternities of the campus. The only requirement for membership is that the prospective member has been a Boy Scout. Alpha Phi Omega is not in competition with any campus organization. Instead it seeks the co-operation of other groups to help broaden its field of service. The Alpha Phi Omega Fra- ternity gives college men an opportunity to carry en the principles of scouting during their college years. The chapter chose two men to go to the Twenty-Fifth National Convention of Alpha Phi Omega. The convention was held in Des Moines, I " ) v?, at the Fort Des Moines Hotel, December 29-30, 1950. The purpose of the convention was to elect national officers and pass on changes in the na- tional constitution. Our chapter was one of the chapters to receive the silver anniversary award for the projects we completed in the 1950 school year. It was also decided that due to the national emergency the rule of having to have twenty- five members in order for a chapter to remain active, be discontinued until after the end of the emergency.

Page 36 Sigma Tau Gamma Sigma Tau Gamma was founded on the cam- pus of the Central Missouri State Teachers Col- lege at Warrensburg, Missouri, in 1920. It was the desire to perpetuate student friendships in an organization dedicated to true brotherhood that led the charter members to establish Sigma Tau Gamma. Theta chapter, chartered on April 2, 1927, was the first appearance of a national social fraternity on the Northwest Missouri State College campus. Prior to 1927, all Greek organ- izations were forbidden on this campus, and it was through the efforts of these charter mem- bers of Theta chapter that the restrictions were removed. The year 1950-51 has marked another mile- stone in the progress of the Taus. This is the second year the Taus have occupied the Tau Club. Keeping in tradition, the Taus partici- pated in every all-school activity, especially Homecoming activities, variety show, house dec- oration, car decoration and float. Climaxing the homecoming festivities was the Tau Alumni Banquet. A joint Sigma Tau-Alpha Sigma pledge dance with a western theme was held at the Country Club. Cider was the beverage of the evening. Theta chapter was well represented on the football and basketball squads, in inter-collegiate athletic events, as well as in the intra-mural pro- gram. Fifteen Taus were guests of Alpha chap- ter at Warrensburg on the weekend of the Mule- Bearcat football game. The final events of the spring quarter were the Sigma Tau Rose Dance and the all Tau picnic. The dance, an annual event, was held at the Maryville Country Club. The highlight of the evening was the selection of the Rose of Sigma Tau, chosen for her be auty, charm, and personality. Page 31 Phi Sigma Epsilon Front Row: J. Gordon Strong, Sponsor: Lon E. Wilson.

Page 38 Phi Sigma Epsilon U Nu Chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon has com- pleted another year in its quest for the perfect brotherhood. With the help of their sponsors, W. T. Garett and H. R. Dieterich, the Phi Sigs participated in many functions for the better- ment of the college, the organization, and the members themselves. The fraternity went all out in an effort to make the 1950 Homecoming a good one, and succeeded in placing in the judging of all entries, which included house decorations, two floats, variety show, clowns, and the supremacy award. The Phi Sigs initiated a number of new mem- bers into the organization during the year. They also brought in three new honorary members. Dr. J. G. Strong, Mr. Harold Mulford, and Mr. Lon Wilson. Dr. William A. Brandenburg, Dean of Faculty, accepted an honorary advisorship to the chapter. Dr. Brandenburg was national presi- dent of the fraternity in 1929 and 1930. The organization began many new activities such as the Phi Sig Frolics, which is a variety show staged annually by the fraternity members to raise money for worthwhile projects. Another ad- dition to the fraternity ' s interests was the acqui- sition of a Chapter Room to be used for meetings and as an informal gathering place for Phi Sigs and their guests. The Chapter Room was re- finished through the co-operative work of all the members. Representatives of the fraternity attended the National Conclave in Detroit, as well as two regional conclaves. The members of Phi Sigma Epsilon climaxed the year with a spring formal and the presenta- tion of the " Phi Sig of the Year " award. This trophy is presented to the active member who most nearly lives up to the ideals of the fraternity. Page 39 Independent Club Front Row: Dorthie Hall. Sponsor: Walt Stanton.

Page 40 Independent Club The Co-operative Independent Club was established on this campus in 1938. It was in- active during the war, but was re-established after the war ended. Its purpose is to offer social activity for those men and women who do not belong to a social fraternity or sorority. The club ' s first function of the 1950-51 school year was a " square " dance to welcome the new members. Membership for the club exceeded any previous totals, showing popular improve- ment and acceptance. Significant of its energetic membership, the Independent Club won plaques in every phase of the Homecoming activities, aggregating a total of 18 points for second place in the race for the Supremacy trophy. It began those activities with a depiction of College life for the variety show entitled, " Doin ' What Comes Naturally, " and won second place. The co-op club ' s house decoration easily won first place. The float was a " 1925 Special " loco- motive. Colored in black and yellow, the " 25 " pulled across the finish line in a tie for first place honors in the humor-originality class. The organization during the past year has also demonstrated supremacy in other areas. One project which is well-remembered for its popular effect is the newly traditionalized Mardi Gras. This program is reputed to be the number one all-school informal social event. The club gave numerous parties throughout the year, including a spring function. The sponsors for this year were Mrs. Helen Gee and Miss Dorothie Hall. Miss Hall left at the end of the fall quarter, and Miss Doris Hysler became the junior sponsor. Later in the year, Dr. D. M. Cooper also became an Independent sponsor. Page 41 Home Economics Club The Home Economics Club on this campus tries to promote friendship and co-operation among its members and those that are affiHated with the field of home economics in any way. Also, it seeks to develop good leadership and fellowship, to encourage creative arts, to encour- age improvement in scholarship, to provide social, business, and professional experiences, and to cooperate with other local, state, and na- tional groups. The annual Province Workshop of the Na- tional Home Economics Club was held in Omaha this year. Three members, our president, Doro- thy McCartney, and our two new sponsors. Miss Rice and Miss Wilson, attended to make plans for this year ' s program. Toys such as stuffed animals, wood animals, and games which were made by members of the club, were sent to the Indian Children ' s Hospital at Tacoma, Washington, for Christmas gifts. The Home Economics Club was entertained during the year by discussions by several busi- nessmen of the community on such subjects as the selection of china, silverware, and crystal. A bazaar was held as one of the special money- making projects for this year. Part of the pro- ceeds were sent to the American Home Eco- nomics Association to help sponsor the Interna- tional Scholarship Fund and to contribute to the Permanent Headquarters Building fund, which will establish permanent headquarters for the American Home Economics Association with which the Home Economics Club is affiliated. One of the main projects of which we are rightfully proud was the presentation of the United Nations flag to the college. The annual May Breakfast was given in the spring in honor of the senior girls by Kappa Omicron Phi and the Home Economics Club. The officers of the club this year were as follows: President, Dorothy McCartney, Vice- President, Harriet Watson; Secretary, Jo Ann Cutler: Treasurer, Rosetta Reed. Ag Club Students who are majors or minors in agri- culture, and other students who have agricultural 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. The sponsor is Mr. F. B. Houghton. During Homecoming celebration, the Ag Club participated in the parade with a float repre- senting " 25 Years of Gridiron Supremacy. " The club also presented a skit in the variety show, which showed how traditions became established on the campus. December 9, the club held its second annual barnwarming. In the spring, when vocational agriculture and F.F.A. contests were held by the Ag departments, members of the club assisted with the contests. The club has its own official emblem and colors. 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 in northwest Mis- souri 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 annual award banquet. The contest was held this year April 13, with all members participating. Several classes of beef cattle, sheep, and hogs were judged, scores being compared with those of experts. Medals were awarded to the high point man 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 banquet held at Residence Hall on April 20. Several guests at the banquet were the fathers of the club members, adminis- trative officers of the college, and stockmen who furnished the livestock for the contest.

Green and White Peppers The Green and White Peppers, an active pep organization on the campus, spent an exceed- ingly busy year very profitably. To begin with, they enlarged their number to include sixty girls, which is more than they have previously had. During this year, as in past years, the group was always in the midst of the spectators at foot- ball and basketball games, and forever gave both their yells and services to games and other activities, as they watched their favorite team in action. A bus load of girls journeyed to Warrensburg for a football game. A good time was had by all, as would be expected when a group of girls join forces for one goal — to cheer their team on to victory. Throughout the year, students were reminded of athletic events when they saw numerous girls wearing white jackets with green pepper em- blems passing through the halls and classrooms on the days on which there were to be football or basketball games. The organization was founded in 1927, and is sponsored by Miss Bonnie Magill. Page 44 UPPER PICTURE Row Three: Joanne Hartell, Charlene Jones, Jim Pool, Mickey McComb. Roberta Walker. Jerry Sheil.

Barkatze The Barkatze Pep Organization, founded in 1922, is a club composed of men and women students organized to promote support for the College ' s athletic teams. During the year the Barkatze attended one off-campus athletic event. A football game at Warrensburg was well attended by members of this organization. A Pep King and Queen were elected at the annual Barkatze Pep Dance. The Barkatze also furnished entertaining and active stunts at the halftime of some home basketball games. At one of the football games, the pepsters turned hawkers and took care of the concession stand. Hot dogs, pop, popcorn, apples, and other refreshments were sold. During the Homecoming activities, the Bar- katze we re very active in many events. At the annual Homecoming alumni chili supper, a large number of active and ex-Barkatze were present to enjoy the function. Above all duties, the Barkatze are instru- mental in maintaining a sportsman-like spirit among members of the student body. Whether the team is victorious or defeated, the enthusi- asm of a Barkat can be seen by all. Page 4S Kappa Oniicron Phi Kappa Omicron Phi is a professional home economics fraternity for girls with high scho- lastic ratings and high ideals. The Alpha Chapter of Kappa Omicron Phi was organized on the campus by Miss Hettie M. Anthony on December 11, 1922, thus giving our college the distinction of being the first chapter of this national organization. Miss Mabel Cook, our sponsor, conceived the idea for the organization. Dr. June Cozine, former spon- sor, is past national president of the organization. From November 22-25 the National Conclave was held at San Antonio, Texas. The delegates of Alpha chapter, Roberta Walker and Betty Curry, traveled with those from Warrensburg to attend the Conclave, which is held every three years. During the second week of the fall quarter. Kappa Phi joined the Home Economics club in sponsoring a picnic for all new majors and minors in home economics. Kappa Phi participated in Homecoming events by decorating the Home Management House. Also, they were sponsors of the winning candidate for Homecoming Queen. The annual Founder ' s Day Dinner was held December ninth in the Home Economics De- partment. After the dinner, everyone, including several alumnae members, enjoyed a grab bag and were entertained by music. In the spring the annual Senior Day Dinner was held. At this time each senior girl was pre- sented with a gift. The programs for the entire year were de- signed to improve the character and personality of each Kappa Phi girl. Each month an active member brought before the group one phase of the objective in an entertaining and educational program. Newman Club The Newman Club, an international organiza- tion, was formed almost fifty years ago and now extends from Montreal to British Columbia in Canada, to Hawaii, Japan and China, and has over five hundred clubs in the colleges and uni- versities of the United States. As a club of Catholic culture and fellowship. the Newman Club is organized in order to deepen the spiritual and enrich the temporal lives of its members through a balanced program of religious, intellectual, and social union; and to assist the college and its students whenever possible. Each Newman Club offers invaluable aid in spiritual guidance, and each has a chaplain for assistance. Father R. E. Graham, pastor of St. Patricks Church, is chaplain. The purposes of the Newman Club are iden- tical with the activities: Religious, educational, and social. The activities include corporate com- munions, discussion groups, educational and re- ligious trips, lectures, debates, picnics, parties, dances, and co-operation in all school activities. The ideals of the club are the ideals of its patron. Cardinal John Henry Newman, namely, love of truth, sincerity, candor and intellectual honesty, humility, courage and manliness, gentle- ness, refinement of manner, purity, aversion for vulgarity and coarseness, and hatred of duplicity. The majority of Newman Clubs are affiliated with the Newman Club Federation. The Federa- tion acts as a clearing house for ideas, methods, and techniques of organization. Through the Federation, a student in the individual club re- ceives a sense of solidarity and community with other clubs and other students. Membership in the Newman Club enables the student to become acquainted with other stu- dents of his faith and to form friendships more beneficial than chance acquaintanceships. The extent of benefits to be derived depends largely upon the efforts of the student in the club ' s program. Page 46 Front Row: Mary Burser, Guard.

Intermediate Club The Intermediate Club is an organization made up of students who are preparing to teach in the Intermediate and upper grades of the elementary school. The club is planned by the members with the aim of helping them to attain personal and professional growth in their chosen field. Meetings are held every two weeks, with every third meeting being a social one. Adminis- tering the group programs is Miss Mary Keith, the club ' s sponsor. This year the club ' s activities included a float and skit for Homecoming, the annual Christmas Chile Supper, Valentine Party, and a fall and spring picnic.

The Art Club, which was organized in Sep- tember, 1916, is the oldest departmental organ- ization on the campus. Because of the Second World War, the Club was discontinued in 1942, but was reorganized again in the fall of 1950. It is an organization which has as its purpose an encouragement of fuller appreciation of art. Members of the club participate in directing each weekly meeting. A Halloween masquerade party, which was sponsored by the Art Club, was given for the student body. The club brought to the students and citizens of Maryville an Art Exhibit of Japanese prints during the Spring Quarter. Sponsors of the club are Mr. E. L. Gibson and Mrs. Virginia Dorman. Mathematics Club The purpose of the club is to further the growth of its members culturally, intellectually, and socially. One of the objectives of the club is to establish in this college the chapter of the Kappa Mu Epsilon Fraternity. At present this has not been accomplished, but the members of the club are working toward this end. The club meets the second and fourth Tues- days of every month, at 7:15 p.m. in room 119. The program for each evening is given by a member or members of the club. Any member may be called upon to contribute his time and efforts toward planning a program. The pro- gram agenda consists of subjects such as topol- ogy, navigation, measurement of the polyhedral angle, and trick mathematics. Front Row: Ray Espey. William Lafferty.

It is the purpose of the club to provide social experience for students living off the campus and to render service to the college. Two additional sponsors, Miss Rachael Taul of the Social Science department and Mr. Howard Ringold, Industrial Arts instructor, were selected to help Miss Locke, Dean of Women and O.K. Klub organizer, guide the O.K. Kids through a busy year. The Fall Quarter brought active participation in the Homecoming program with a float entry and the decorating of a house. Although the float was not a prize winner, it was the neat and clever creation of Jewel Rice, artist and director of a large crew of helpers. The house decoration, a large birthday cake with the caption, " Knew You Were Coming So We Baked a Cake " was the idea of Norma Jean Waters and her helpers. Two square dance parties, a scavenger hunt and a wiener roast rounded out the quarter. The latter will long be remembered, for after a long Ind ian summer, fifty O.K. Kids braved the first freeze of the season to load into cars and head for the Lake of Three Fires, near Bedford, Iowa. Winter quarter opened with a roller skating party after the first business meeting, and the year proceeded with other square dances, a dress up party, and finally the big and long awaited event, the spring weekend trip to the Ozarks. The several business meetings throughout the year proved profitable for the voicing of ideas, for passing on policies and for planning events to come. More than that, they gave the members something to hold to, thereby creating the co- hesiveness necessary to a stable and successful organization. It is the hope of the O.K. Klub leaders that the organization will grow each year until it includes in its membership all students not livmg in a campus dormitory. Kappa Delta Pi The highest honor that may be bestowed to students on this campus is admission to Kappa Delta Pi, an honor society in education. Member- ship is extended only to junior and senior stu- dents who rank among the upper quartile of the student body and who are preparing for the teaching profession. In addition, these students should possess commendable personal qualities and worthy educational ideals. The organization aims to encourage high intellectual, personal, and professional standards. The four principal ideals of Kappa Delta Pi are: (1) the ideal of science which means fidel- ity to the cause of free inquiry and to the ideal of verified truth. (2) the ideal of fidelity to hu- manity, the maintenance of faith in the im- provability 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. Zeta Lambda chapter was installed on the Northwest Missouri campus on April 27, 1948, with fourteen charter members. Faculty spon- sors are Dr. John L. Harr, Mr. H. T. Phillips, Miss Katherine Franken, Miss Grace Shepherd, and Miss Chloe Millikan. During the past year, the chapter has estab- lished a Bibliofile award to be given at the honors assembly each year. This award will be given to the student who has the best collection of books. The award encourages students to acquire a library of quality books while attend- ing college. Each year the chapter holds its Founder ' s Day banquet in April. This past year the chapter was fortunate in having the Reverend Monk Bryan as guest speaker. His talk compared the closely correlated paths of the teacher and the minister. The officers of the organization are Gaylord Meyers, President; Wilbur Pollard, Vice-Presi- dent; Joyce Smith, Secretary; Miss Katherine Franken, Treasurer; and Robert Guthland, Reporter.

Student Christian Association The Student Christian Association was organ- ized in 1945, and was composed of former YWCA and YMCA members. It is an organiza- tion of interdenominational united Christian youth on the campus. The goal of the Student Christian Association is the same as that of all followers of Christ — to bring His kingdom to earth. The organization seeks to prove that Jesus is Lord of education, as well as of politics, eco- nomics, social welfare, and religion. To further its goal on the campus, the association largely devotes its labor and services to aiding Christian programs and activities. The organization met every second and fourth Tuesday of each month. The programs were devoted to worship services, special music, and round-table and panel discussions on sub- jects of interest to the group. Also, plans were discussed for members to attend summer conferences. One of the main campus activities in which the Student Christians took part was Religious Emphasis Week. Members of the association participated in this program, by leading the wor- ship services in the daily assemblies and in the youth seminars. Four special leaders were on the campus for the week: Dr. Huston Smith, Department of Philosophy of Washington Uni- versity, St. Louis; Dr. Maur Burback, Chaplain of Major Seminary, Conception, Missouri: Harold J. Kuebler, Regional Secretary of YMCA, Topeka, Kansas: and Dr. Carl C. Bracy, Chancellor of Nebraska Wesleyan University, Lincoln, Nebraska. Also active during the week were the ministers of the churches of Maryville, who united their efforts with these four leaders in order to make the programs beneficial to each student. Throughout the week, as well as throughout the year, members of S.C.A. worked to promote spiritual interests and understanding in the lives of college students. Sponsors of S.C.A. are Dr. Irene Mueller, Dr. H. G. Dildine, and Dr. J. A. Dreps. Page 54 Pi Onieea Pi Pi Omega Pi is a national honorary fraternity whose purpose is to create professional growth and a feehng of fellowship among students in- terested in the advancement of business educa- tion. Members of this organization are required to meet high scholastic standards in business and education subjects. Of the seventy-four chapters in existence in the United States, Beta chapter was the second to be organized. Beta chapter meets semi-monthly to discuss activities and questions concernmg business edu- cation. Foremost among its activities were the publication of a newsletter, a Homecoming luncheon in honor of the alumni members, and a breakfast for graduating seniors of Pi Omega Pi. Other activities included a trip to Kansas City, a tea for the business teachers at the teach- ers meeting in October, films, a float in the Homecoming Parade, initiation services, social hours, and discussion meetings. Our President, Jean Hansen, was sent to the national convention held in conjunction with the National Business Teachers Association. The convention was held during Christmas vacation in December at Cleveland, Ohio. Miss Jean Hansen assumed the responsibility of leadership as President. Richard Gordon served as Vice-President. Other officers were Betty Conrad, Secretary; Donald Davis, Treas- urer; and Joyce Smith, Reporter. Pi Omega Pi now has a membership of nearly twenty-two members, many of whom are sport- ing new badges and keys. Mr. Dale Blackwell, who holds a life member- ship in Alpha Zeta Chapter at Southwest Mis- souri State College at Springfield, Missouri, is sponsor of the organization. The honorary mem- bers of Pi Omega Pi are: Miss Effie Mae Morrey, Dr. Sterling Surrey, Mr. Clifford Kensinger, and Mr. Elwyn DeVore. Pi Omega Pi has had a very successful and interesting year under our president ' s leadership. Front Row: Beverly Hooker. Betty Conrad, Sue Thompson. Bonnie Polk. Jean Hansen.

Page 55 Association for Childhood Education The Maryville branch of the Association for Childhood Education International is a student branch of a great international organization whose membership numbers over sixty thousand with branches in fifty-two foreign countries. Its membership is limited to students majoring in elementary education. The purpose of the organization is to work for a better understanding of children and better guidance for every child in the school, the home, and the community. Also, it seeks to establish a set of standards by which an efficient ele- mentary educator should abide or strive to reach. Another aim is to encourage students to enter the field of elementary education. The program for the year was varied. The year opened with a tea for prospective members. This was followed by a party for pledges and initiates. Other events on the social calendar were the Christmas party, the Valentine Party, and the May Morning Breakfast for the Seniors. Other programs for the year were concerned with subjects of a professional nature and in line with the stated purpose. This year the group gave a discussion on the subject, " Why Not Teach in the Elementary School? " which was broadcast on KFEQ, St. Joseph. The A.C.E.I. is an active participant in all campus activities, including those of Home- coming week. At this time, a luncheon was held for alumni members. The Maryville branch has held a close re- lationship with the national organization through attendance at national conventions. Several times students have traveled to those meetings. This year the group attended the State A.C.E.I. meeting in Jefferson City. Miss Chloe E. Milliken has been the sponsor of the organization on this campus since its be- ginning in 1928. Mrs. Marie Price Hull is the co-sponsor. Women ' s Athletic Association The Women ' s Athletic Association, an active organization, was organized in 1925 on the campus of Northwest Missouri State College. The purpose of this organization is to promote women ' s sports, school spirit, good sportsman- ship, and teamwork. Participation in healthful recreation is encouraged, and all high school graduates interested in physical education are urged to investigate the field of this college. During the fall quarter hockey and minor sports were sponsored by W.A.A. Hockej ' was directed by Joan Magnuson, a sophomore major in physical education. Minor sports, under the direction of Miss Magill of the faculty, included ping pong, table tennis, darts, badminton, and shuffleboard. At the close of the fall quarter several new members were initiated, since any college girl who has been active in activities throughout one quarter is eligible. A large number of enthusiastic girls came out for basketball, which was sponsored during the winter quarter. After several practices, a round robin tournament was played, and outstanding teams were determined. Spring quarter activities included a volley- ball tournament. Work Day, and the annual Playday. A number of teams entered the volley- ball tournament, held each Monday evening throughout the quarter. Under the chairman- ship of Mary Lou Neville, W.A.A. planned Play- day activities for the senior girls of the North- west Missouri District. This annual event oc- cured on the fifth of May. On the " Saturday Work Day " each W.A.A. member was responsi- ble for earning a dollar to help finance the dele- gate ' s trip to the N.A.C.W. convention. The officers of the year were: Sarabel Davis, President; Mary Kinman, Vice-President: Char- lotte Turner, Secretary: Jean Overstreet, Treas- urer: Roberta Berry, Reporter: and Mary Lou Neville, Playday Chairman of W.A.A.

Since its reactivation, the club has had a membership of almost seventy men and women. All students working in any division of in- dustrial arts are invited to join. The active in- terests in each division of the department are to plan industrial tours and trips, to hold discus- sions, and to promote general fellowship. This year ' s club was the first to enter a float in the Homecoming Parade. The entry, a show- boat, won first honors in both bea uty and origin- ality classes. Sponsors are Donald Valk, Kenneth Thomp- son, and Harold Ringold. Page 60 Bearcat s Tale Front Row: Mary Ellen Daniels. Bob Gutland.

Not Shown: James Totten, Bill Yauch, Norma Smith. In the spring of 1949 a trio of enterprising young men got together to form the nucleus for a new campus pubhcation. Thus, the Bearcat ' s Tale was founded by Eddie Reece, Bob Guth- land, and Bill Elam. The purpose of this small but growing news- paper is to convey news directly to the student. The Tale is just that — a students ' paper. Edi- torials by its staff have helped to instigate cer- tain action on the campus. Constructive criti- cism is printed along with the humor and gossip of campus life. News of students and their viewpoints have been the core of material for the Tale. The Bear- cat ' s Tale will continue to serve the student body in the future as it has in the past. Editors for the 1950-51 year were Barbara Hudson, George Williams, and Bob Guthland. Under the excellent supervision of the editors, the paper has taken on a new look. The cover. the new look, is different on each issue and is a contribution of cartoonists, Jim Hill and Jim Totten, who are both amateur experts in their fields. Another factor of the expansion of the Tale has been the feature writers. They are John Carlson, Mary Ellen Daniels, Isabel Nash, Belle Guthland, and Jim Montague. Faculty sponsors who have aided the staff immeasurably with their advice are: Dr. Grube, Dr. Surrey, Mrs. Mauzey, Mr. Gee, and Mr. Taylor. Through wholehearted student co-operation, the Bearcat ' s Tale has met with success and ex- pansion. This could not have been, were it not for the people behind the scenes. Much credit is due Pat McClaren, head of the typing staff, and Gail Van Fosson, mimeographer, not to men- tion the little unseen " reporters " who watched in the dark in order to bring things to light.

Page 62 CLASSES " i ' ift Who ' s Who An important moment in the life of our col- lege Senior is that moment when he or she is chosen to represent Northwest Missouri State College in the publication of Who ' s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. This is the highest honor a Senior can attain. These students have received this honor for a variety of reasons. They have distinguished themselves as editors, actors, student senators, journalists, athletes, presidents of clubs, teachers, and honor students during their four years of college. The ability and enthusiasm with which they entered into these activities were carefully con- sidered. Th is group is part of the core of the College which promotes many successful pro- jects, activities, and improvements for the bene- fit of the school. They also took active part in planning parties, dances, and plays, which form an important part of every college year. It is of the utmost consequence that colleges produce capable leaders today — not only in the field of education, but also in the field of citizen- ship. It is felt that these students are repre- sentative of that necessary leadership. Chosen by a faculty committee, they are selected on the basis of their actual contribution to the school, as well as their own personal development during their college years. The administration, faculty, and students of this College extend their best wishes to these students. They express the hope that as these students enter their respective fields of occupa- tion, they will continue to be as successful as they were while preparing for that occupation in college.

Page S3 ?Wi»h ' t? « Paie 84 Laboratory School The Horace Mann Laboratory School pro- vides a reahstic situation for the student teachers of MSC. The school is maintained to afford stu- dents the opportunity to put teaching methods into practice. The laboratory school ranges from nursery school through high school. A prerequisite to a B.S. degree in Education is two quarters of student teaching, usually in the senior year of college. This makes it possible for each student teacher to have the fullest exper- ience inside and outside the classroom to meet the problems of a teacher. Horace Mann has modern and efficient equip- ment as well as good methods of teaching. Well qualified supervising teachers are assigned to each group of students taught. Each student teacher participates and observes in the class- room before he is given the responsibility of preparing the lessons and teaching the class. The student teacher is responsible to both his college professor and his supervising teacher con- cerning his teaching methods. The student teach- ers change from quarter to quarter, but the super- vising teacher insures continuity in the classes. Each week a seminar is held in which topics concerning teaching problems are discussed. The president and other members select the program for the quarter. Many supervisors and student teachers travel to schools which have done outstanding work along similar lines, in order to observe tech- niques and gain new ideas.

Under the leadership of Mr. James Johnson, it is constantly growing in service for the students, faculty, and alumni of the college. The stacks in the library are open to the stu- dents, who may chose their books at will. The stacks contained 43,000 books, and during this school year 2,500 more were added to that num- ber. Valuable information can be found in any possible field due to the large increase in source material. The library has four service areas with which most students are acquainted. The largest is the study room, where students come to prepare their lessons. The reserve room is used quite extensively by students in classes which require special readings. The Instructional Materials Bureau has served both students and faculty very well. Last but not least we have our brows- ing room. With its soft chairs, home town papers, and good books, it offers the students an oppor- tunity to just relax. A new feature of the library this year is its extension film service, which supplies all the schools in this district with instructional film for visual education. Page S6 ATHLETICS .; x .

Page 89 Football 1950 This season heralded the first time in the coaching career of Ryland Milner at Maryville State College that one of his football teams have finished a season below the .500 mark. In con- ference play the Bearcats finished the season with a one won, three lost, and a one tie record which was good enough for a third place tie with Cape Girardeau. For all games played the Bear- cats had three wins, five losses, and one tie. After looking rather impressive with a 13-0 victory over the University of Missouri " B " Tigers, the Bearcats were humbled 53-0 by the powerful running attack of the Northwest Louisi- ana State team. Because of the great traveling distance the Bearcat squad was cut to twenty- four men. This factor, coupled with the ex- tremely warm weather, broke the back of the Maryville offense. The score was 7-0 in favor of the Demons at the end of the first quarter, but from that point on the lack of man power hurt the Bearcat cause. At home, the Bearcats were once again dropped for a loss, this time by the Fort Hayes Tigers. Although outplayed in every depart- ment, the Tigers took advantage of seven Mary- ville fumbles and went on to win the game. Numerous times during the game Bearcat offensives were halted by bobbles in the back- field. Towards the end of the game the Bearcats fought back savagely only to have the Tigers complete a long, " desperation " touchdown pass in the closing minutes. These two defeats, especially the one to North- western Louisiana, probably contributed heavily to this season ' s below normal performance. Hampered by a muddy gridiron in their first conference game, the Bearcats were unable to cope with the Rolla Miner ' s rugged ground at- tack, and after the final whistle blew, the ' Cats found themselves on the short end of a 14-0 score. Because of the wet weather the Bearcat passing attack, their main weapon, was ineffective. At the end of the first quarter neither team had scored, but early in the second period the Miners broke the scoring ice with a series of quick opening plays. In the third quarter Rolla scored their final touchdown on a short pass over the line.

This was the first time in nine years that the Bears had garnered a victory from the Bearcats. Utilizing a recovered fumble to set up their first touchdown, the Bearcats scored early in the first canto. It was late in the quarter before the ' Cats struck " pay dirt " again. Three Springfield touchdown tosses in the second stanza ran the count to 27-7. After the half another Bruin aerial and a long run accounted for Springfield ' s final touchdowns. This ended the scoring until the Bearcats final six pointer. Then the Bearcats got back into the victory column with a 27-7 Homecoming victory over College of Emporia. After the Presbies had dominated the first half ' s play with their lone touchdown in the early stages of the game, the Bearcats scored just before the half and im- mediately after the half on the first play from scrimmage. From that point on it was all Bearcat. Since the revival of the Homecoming contests after World War II, the Bearcats have not lost one of these tilts. At Cape Girardeau, because of brilliant de- fensive play, Maryville ' s only touchdown plus the extra point clinched the first and only Bear- cat conference victory. Maryville ' s forward wall repeatedly broke inta the Cape backfield and downed ball carriers before they reached the line of scrimmage. Both in running and passing the Indians ' net gain was a negative quantity. Time after time the Bearcats repulsed attacks inside their own ten yard line. This year in the " Hickory Stick " battle the Northwest Missouri Staters barely retained po- session of the much fought over trophy when they and the Kirksville Bulldogs battled to a 13-13 tie. In the first period of play a seventy- two yard touchdown drive gave the Bearcats an early lead. The Bulldogs then preceded to knot the count with a touchdown of their own in the second period. Minutes later Kirksville took the lead on a pass interception and a forty-five yard runback. Not until the final stanza were the Bearcats able to even the score. This time it was a seventy-three yard offensive that netted the Bearcats a tie. The Warrensburg Mules foiled the Bearcats bid for a .500 season with a 32-19 victory over the Maryvillians in the ' Cats 1950 football finale. Although behind at the half, the Mules un- leashed a potent aerial offensive after the half which the Bearcats were unable to stymie. Page 91 Basketball Squad Front Row: George Nathan, Kurby Lyle.

After earning this letter the athlete is then required to go through a rather intensive initiation in order to qualify for membership. Upon becoming a new member of the " M " Club one finds that the most stressed aim of the organization is to promote and uphold the stan- dards of the College through athletics. A mem- ber of the " M " Club may be expelled for schol- astic deficiency or immoral conduct. The Club attempts to promote good sportsmanship among the fans as well as the participants, to encourage active participation in various sports, and to de- velop an attitude of teamwork. The major functions on the campus supervised by the " M " Club are Freshman Walkout Day and Homecoming Alumni Breakfast. The Club this year was host to the ' 25 championship foot- ball team. The " M " Club is responsible also for the foot- ball and basketball complimentary programs. These men have a representative team in all of the Intra-Mural events. The smooth functioning of the annual High School District Track Meet is another feature of their many activities. Page 94 Track Squad This is a shot of the Northwest Missouri Col- lege M. I. A. A. Champs of 1950 leaving for a track meet. Coach Ryland Milner ' s thin clads opened their 1950 track season with a successful defense of their M.I.A.A. Conference indoor crown. Scores in the meet were Mary villa 44 5 6, Cape 40 V3. Springfield 35 ' 4. Rolla 34 3. Warrensburg 15 4, and Kirksville 9 4. Mickey Anderson paved the way for the Bear- cat victory with wins in the mile and two mile. His efforts in these contests resulted in new meet records of 4:33 and 10:03.6 respectively. Other Maryville victories came in the sixty yard dash and the mile relay. In their first outdoor meet the Bearcats over- whelmed the Graceland College Yellow Jackets by a score of 98.65 - 37.35. Maryville garnered first in all events except the short dashes and the mile relay. Journeying to Peru for their next encounter, the ' Cats dropped the Bobcats 106-30 by win- ning every event except the broad jump and the 880 yard run. Doane College, the only team to defeat the Bearcats in 1950, piled up ten firsts to the Cats six in winning 74 to 62. The Bearcats resumed their role as victors in a triangular contest with Peru and Tarkio. Losing only the mile, 880 yard run, and the broad jump, Maryville scored 122 2 points to Peru ' s 33 V2 and Tarkio ' s 15. Avenging a " 49 defeat, the Bearcats defeated Ottawa University 74-57. Fourteen of the six- teen events went to the Green and White. The Bearcats closed their 1950 track season by defending and retaining their Conference title. Maryville won with 84 4 points followed by Cape with 47 7 10, Warrensburg with 37 2 5, Springfield with 33 V4 points, Rolla with 27 1 5, and Kirksville with 8 1 5. Mickey Anderson ' s time of 9:45.7 in the two mile bettered the existing Conference record by 14 seconds. Page 95 Co -Recreational Council Front Rzw: Stan Ogden. Shirley Collier. Shirley Clarke.

These physical activities are for the majority of less skilled individuals who are anxious to par- ticipate in sports merely for the love of the game. If athletics are good for the varsity man. surely they are good , or perhaps even better, for the student whose co-ordinations and skills are inferior to the perfectionist. Thus the intra- mural programs strive to present sports to the novice on a level with the varsity program. The aim of the department is to have a varied program, so that all may find some activity in which to participate. There are sixteen various activities, team and individual. Intramural and Co-Recreational, that one may participate in throughout the entire school year. Activities vary from basketball through swimming, and extend to include ping-pong. The entire intramural program on our cam- pus is governed by student representatives who are assisted by the Director, Coach Donald Peterson. This governing group of students is known as the Intramural Commission. There are five students on the commission, one of whom is chairman. Each class in the college is represented by a commission member selected by the Student Senate from a list of recom- mended people, compiled by the Intramural and Co-Recreational Sports Director. In ad- dition, there is one representative-at-large chosen each year. The members of the commission this year are Jack Wiechmann, Dean Stuck, Stan Ogden, George Haws, and William Hopper. The slogan for the Intramural Commission is " Sports for all, " and with the varied program it is able to come closer to the true meaning of this slogan. No longer are boys the only ones who may compete in games not on the varsity schedule. The Intramural program has been broadened to include programs for girls, many of whom have been and are emphasizing the benefits gained from all-out participation in sports and recreational activities. It is hoped that a bigger and better program can be planned for next year. Jack Wiechmann. Dean Stuck. Stan Ogden. George Haws, W. C. Hopper. Don Peterson, Sponsor. Page 97 Attendant.

Maryville ' s Silver Jubilee Homecoming Oc- tober 20 and 21 highlighted the school year. " Twenty-five years of Football Supremacy " was the appropriate title. The homecoming kickoff was on Friday night in the college auditorium. Then ten organiza- tions participated in the Variety Show. Alpha Sigma Alpha won the first place, Independents took second, and Delta Sigma Epsilon and Sigma Sigma Sigma - Phi Sigma Epsilon tied for third and fourth places. Miss Mary Bauman was crowned Home- coming Queen for 1950 at the Variety Show. Queen Mary ruled over the remainder of the homecoming festivities with her attendants. Misses Joyce Smith, Mary Beth Fries, Polly Cramer, and Nadine Cramer. Following the Show, a spirited pep rally was held at the stadium parking lot. Jim Tanner and George Nathan were in charge of the rally, which included a speech by Mr. Sam England, captain of the 1925 Bearcat team, and group cheers, led by the cheerleaders. Nine organizations entered house decorations. The Independent Club won first. Alpha Sigma Alpha placed second, and Sigma Sigma Sigma took third place. A grand total of seventeen floats, twenty- three bands, and numerous clowns and jalopies made up the largest parade in this town ' s his- tory. The Industrial Arts Club and Sigma Sigma Sigma tied for first in beauty with their floats, while the Industrial Arts Club and the Independent Club tied for first in humor and originality. To add to the holiday spirit, the Bearcats romped over the Emporia Presbies 27-7 in a thrilling homecoming game. As a climax alumni, students, and friends danced to the music of Russ Carlyle and his Band at the dance that night. During the inter- mission. Glen Sherry and John Hellerich were awarded the trophies for being the outstanding back and lineman, respectively, for 1950. In assembly the following week, the Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority was awarded the Suprem- acy Plaque for all-round participation. Herb Awe served with Dr. Harr as the Home- coming Chairmen. So ended another chapter in the activities of MSC this year. May next year ' s corresponding chapter be an even greater success for the College. Page 99 s .

Cheer Leaders At the beginning of the Fall Quarter a group composed of the presidents of the Student Senate, M-Club, Green and White Peppers, and Barkatze selected seven cheerleaders and two alternates from an enthusiastic group of students who performed. This group decreased to five members during the course of the year. Miss M. Doris Hysler was appointed by the Student Senate as faculty sponsor for the group. The cheerleaders performed at all home foot- ball and basketball games. One of the high lights of the year was a trip to the Warrensburg foot- ball game. Throughout the year, these cheerleaders in- troduced many new yells which were met with much enthusiasm by the cheering section. New green skirts were donned for the basket- ball season, " thanks " to the Student Senate. Several pep assemblies and the annual Home- coming bonfire were included in this year ' s activities. They truly did a great job for the BEARCATS! Pa e 102 Women ' s Physical Education The Department of Physical Education for Women offers an interesting and beneficial pro- gram of physicial activity for each girl. The courses are designed to offer a variety of activi- ties which the girls may select to meet the re- quirements in physical education for graduation. Theory courses may be elected for college credit. Classes in the various phases of dance are offered throughout the year. Modern dance is for those who are interested in interpretative and creative work. Folk dancing, square dan- cing, and social dancing are open to both men and women and provide for both instruction and recreation. For the sports-minded girl there are oppor- tunities for acquiring knowledge and skill in the various sports of field hockey, soccer, basketball, volleyball, and tennis, badminton, table tennis, shuffleboard and archery are popular with the girls. The Department sponsors several intramural organizations for those who are interested in recreational activities. The Dance Club is an organization to provide self-expression through the dance, recreation, and a broader appreciation of the art of the dance. Sigma Phi Dolphin Swimming Club is for those women students who are interested in swimming. If a girl is particu- larly interested in athletics, she may join the Women ' s Athletic Association.

JONES President of the College Page 106 President ' s Residence President ' s Message Another year, another Tower in which is de- picted the collegiate life of the Northwest Mis- souri State College. Each Tower is a record of the current student life and the development of the college. One of the significent events of this college year has been the occasion when the President of the Student Senate, as the representative of the student body, turned the first dirt to mark the beginning of construction of the Student Union Building. Students in the future will find opportunities for gracious living in the Student Union Building which you Sen- iors of 1951 have not had, just as you have had opportunities that students of former years were not privileged to enjoy. A good college must not remain static, and I am sure all of you are pleased to see your college progress. I am proud of the quality of our students. I believe there is a determined effort on the part of each one to make our college known as one of outstanding quality in scholarship, citizenship, and sports- manship. I wish to express to each one who has contributed to this goal my sincere appreciation. The 1951 Tower is a mark of quality. Paee 107 Dean of the Faculty Dr. William A. Brandenburg, a newcomer to our college, has so easily adapted himself to us that we think of him as an old friend. Dr. Brandenburg has shown us, in this one year as Dean, that his purpose for being here is to pro- mote the interests of this student body and faculty. Dr. Brandenburg came to us from William Woods College, where he held the position of Dean. He was a member of the armed forces, serving overseas as a First Lieutenant in the Marine Corps during World War II. More re- cently, Dr. Brandenburg has had overseas duties of a different nature. With a group of educators from ten European countries, he spent several months last year in Europe studying problems of reconstruction. Dr. Brandenburg received his B.S. and M.S. degrees at Kansas State Teachers College, and was awarded his Ph.D. at the University of Colorado. We welcome Dr. Brandenburg and his family to our campus, and express the hope that they will wish to remain here with us. Board of Regents Our board of regents is a group of men inter- ested in this college ' s welfare, who are striving constantly to improve conditions for the students and the faculty on campus. Working with the president of our college, Dr. J. W. Jones, the board last year made possi- ble the realization of three new building units on our campus. This year has seen remark- able progress toward the completion of those buildings. The board is appointed by the governor of the state of Missouri. The men selected live in the nineteen counties in the Northwest District. We are fortunate in having such an able group of men direct the affairs of this college, and we attribute to them the progress we have realized this past year. Seated: Walter Boschen.

Page 109 President Emeritus President Emeritus of Northwest Missouri State College is Mr. Uel W. Lannkin. Mr. Lam- kin served this college faithfully for many years, both good and bad. He has always had the inter- ests of this college uppermost in his actions. President Emeritus Lamkin has had time to be active in the promotion of broader fields of education. He has served as Secretary General of the World Federation of Education. He is also past president of the National Education Associa- tion. He has participated in international con- ferences in Europe, Asia, and neighboring South America. Mr. Lamkin has left us much valuable advice as to our education. " The ' whole man ' must be educated as well as the ' mind of man. ' " " The traditions, the deeds, the gains of yesterday are our foundations for today. He is foolish and short-sighted who does not build on them. " " It takes something besides books and buildings to make a college. " We heartily agree with our President Emeritus.
