CONTENTS I Monday — Classes Tuesday — Social Organizations Wednesday — Departmental Organizations Thursday — Administrati on and Faculty Friday — Sports Saturday — Non-class Activities Sunday — Religious Organizations FOREWORD " A Week at Northwest Missouri State College " could not adequately represent the many activities of the school year unless imaginatively we picture that week as being a school term in length. A writing staff consisting of Sally Bolin, Marcia Woodcock, Louise Novinger, Lillian Beggs, Beverly Thomson, Barbara Nixon, Beverly Garrett, Pat Fowley, Maxine Carmichael, Arlene Rinehart, Pat Baker, Carol Tilton, and Bill Baldwin assisted those pictured on the previous page in recording the academic and social fimctions on campus. The staff of the TOWER through the medium of the camera and the pen offers a review of a mythical week of campus life in this 1955 TOWER. Page 4 DEDICATION Dr. Sterling Surrey This 1955 Tower is dedicated to Dr. Ster- ling Surrey. His service to the students and his interest in them is evidenced by his par- ticipation in a variety of collegiate activities. Representatives to the student senate report that Dr. Surrey, a student senate adviser, is a man of many ideas and much enthusiasm. This report rings true in his work with the Student Loan Fund and with the teacher- student composed Assembly Committee. Bearcat basketball and football fans enjoy and look forward to Dr. Surrey ' s announce- ments at the games. His remarks are not guar- anteed to be unprejudiced but rather they are typical of the school spirit he displays and inspires. Pages OUR CAMPUS ■ ft6ic-rtfi ' ..

Membership of the Inter-Frater- nity Council is made up of the presi- flent, vice-president, and one other member from each of the frater- nities. The Council works to cement re- lations between the fraternities and non-Greek organizations on the campus. Its job is to .set up regula- tions for pledging and rushing and also to build a bond of friendship between the fraternities. PAN-HELLENIC COUNCIL The promotion of good will and scholarship among the sororities on campus and the supervision of inter- sorority functions are the activities of the Pan-Hellenic Council. This is a national organization composed of the president, vice-president, anrl one other representative from each Greek sorority. Sigma Sigma Sigma again cap- tured the Scholarship Cup awarded by the Council. Miss Barbara Taylor of Delta Sigma Epsilon was president of the Council this year. Front Row: Bonnie Henderson.

Page 47 INDEPENDENT CLUB With executives Joyce Brown, Wanda Da- vid, Veldeva Cochran, and Bill Schultz in charge, the Independent Club has completed one of its most successful years. Homecoming, parties, dances, and political campaigns were but a few of the year ' s highlights. First of the 112 members to step forward to pay his dues was Charles Hagee, while Bonnie Hooker had the dubious honor of be- ing last to join. It was people like these two — and all those in between — who made the club a great organization. During the week of fall enrollment, the club sponsored a " Hobo " party for the fresh- men. With Louise Novinger supervising, the groups of " tramps, " " bums, " and " vaga- bonds " were sent separately on scavenger hunts which ended at College Park. There, with a huge campfire providing the atmos- phere, everyone consumed great quantities of marshmallows, and participated in nonsen- sical skits, the brainstorms of Bill Schultz, Betty Cooksey, and Louise Novinger. Each of the 120 who were present finally got their pop even though Corky Elliot and Fred Whit- ford suffered skinned knuckles and other minor injuries while opening bottles by make- shift methods. The strength of the I.C. ' s was very much in evidence during Homecoming weekend. A representative. Miss Pat Wood, rode as an attendant to the Queen. In overall Homecom- ing participation, I.C. captured second place by virtue of a first award in parade activity, first in jalopies, second in beauty floats, and thirds for skits and clowns.

Plaid tablecloths, candles in quaint champagne bottles, and root beer gave just the right atmosphere to those western bal- lads. Closing the week of rushing was the impres- sive formal rush party. Twenty-four pledges were added to the roll. Homecoming with its many activities brought with it problems and fun. The orchid float, the argyle sox, and Fran and Carole Kay carrying their trusty fender added to the parade. The Alpha Sig skit gave to the Homecoming audience a glimpse of the " Bear- cat ' s Hideaway. " Pat Adams was the attrac- tive representative in the contest for Home- coming Queen. Colleen Beggs, Coletta Green, Carole Kay Trotter, Judy Cross, and Doris McKinley kept the chapter well supplied with choco- lates as everyone helped them celebrate the event of receiving a frat pin or a sparkler. One of the pledges, Geraldine Cooley, proved to be a star of the stage when she played a lead in Arsenic and Old Lace, a col- legiate troupe presentation. Another Alpha Sigma beauty, Nancy Kari- ger, was choice for Tower Queen candidate. The Sweetheart Dance was highlighted by the crowning of a senior queen, Betty Naza- rene. Pledges in traditional gunny .sack .skirts made their appearance during Hell Week loaded down with buckets of food for the actives and paddles for them to sign. Again hitting the mark of an all-out suc- cess was the mother-daughter tea held the day before Christmas vacation. Behind the scenes for all these activities was a capable president, Annie Lou Cowan. She was assisted by Bettebelle Pitts, vice- president; Janet McClard, secretary; and Pat Cooper, treasurer.

" Notice, if you please, the contented look on the faces of the rushees who are munching candied apples, popcorn, and peanut.s — distributed by informal rush vendors Shirley Heits and Marcia Ely. Damp- ness in weather has no effect on the enthusi- asm of performers, who are Lauretta and her cobras; Marcia, the trained monkey; Beverly, alias Bobo the clown; Chee Chee the candy clown or Carol Fields; and the Surrey broth- er-sister trapeze act. Now we catch a glimpse of beautifully at- tired ladies in formals — the occasion is the candle lighting ceremony of the formal rush party. You are witnessing the hustle and bustle of Homecoming, Delta style. As the whistle blows to start the parade, beauty float chair- man Barbara Taylor puts the finishing touches to the miles of ruffles and roses on the gowns worn by Lauretta Taylor, Marge Thompson, and Rosalie Hamilton as they take their places on the float to give " Roses to the Team, " a fifth place winner. Yes, that ' s Marcia Woodcock, our queen candidate, taking time from her attendant duties to direct " The Big Catch, " fourth place winner in the decorations. We take a look now, my friends, at other chapter activities . . . the visit of Miss Eliz- abeth Daniels, National President . . . War- rensburg Conclave . . . Mother ' s Day Tea . . . work days . . . faculty tea. Deltas want to pause just now to take hats off to our sponsor. Miss Mabel Cook, and to our patronesses, Mrs. Eugene Fields, Mrs. R. T.

Page 53 SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA % The opening day of college found numerous groups of enthusiastic co-eds bursting with news of summer events. Soon they were calling, " Come one, come all, to the greatest show on earth, " when the Tri Sigmas entertained twenty-five girls at an informal rush party. The formal rush party, " A Garden of Roses, " ended in a flowering climax when twenty-four girls became Tri Sigma pledges. Tri Sigs believe Homecoming this year was the best ever, but they may be prejudiced, because Pat Boydston was queen, the Tri Sigmas came in first with their skit " Our Dis- covery, " second in house decorations, third in parade participation, and last but by no means least, tied with the Sig Taus for the Supremacy Cup. The Tri Sigmas were also well represented at the Homecoming game by the cheerlead- ers: Mary Ann Funkhouser, Barbara Nixon, Jane Dyer, and Nancy Snidow; twirler, Char- mine Johnson; and numerous Tri Sigma band members. This year ' s pledges carried on the tradition of the " Sock-Hop, " which they gave for the members. After this event the Tri Sigmas all agreed that the cutest " cats " on the cam- pus are Donna Stark and Janice Dowden. The floor show proved to the actives that the Tri Sigma pledges are not only cute, but very talented. The Tri Sigmas lifted their heads with pride at their other honors . . . awarded the scholarship cup . . . Darlene Stamp, president of Residence Hall . . . rated third among all other college chapters for efficiency . . . the Tri Sigma candidate for Tower Queen — Bar- bara Nixon, ran a close race. It takes only three words to describe this year for the Tri Sigmas — " It ' s been great! " Page 54 SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA Front Row: H..I..iIm Kordos, Dona Walker. Second How: Jo Ann Meek.

Page 56 PHI st(;ma epsilon The Orchid Ball, the tilth annual produc- tion of the Phi Sig Frolics, and active partici- pation in Homecoming activities were features of another great year of fraternal life. The Phi Sigs constructed and introduced the first self-propelled float for the Home- coming parade. The time and efforts of Bob Staggr., Lanny Gray and Neil Boatright were responsible for its success. The pledging of a competent group of men occupied much time during the year. Another first for Phi Sigma Epsilon was help from the sister sorority at the smoker in the form of the snappy Tri Sig Trio. Phi Sigs and guests swayed to the music of Johny Nelson at the Winter Formal held in the Union Lounge. The evening climaxed the regional conclave with guests from War- rensburg. Kirksville, Cedar Falls, and Pitts- burg. The Orchid Ball, the social peak of all func- tions of Phi Sigma Epsilon, was given on April IB. Each Phi Sig proudly escorted his date, resplendent with her orchid corsage, to the ball for a delightful evening. Rehearsals — publicity — tickets — lines: All were problems that preceded another success- ful presentation of the Phi Sig Frolics. An enthusiastic audience enjoyed the minstrel capers on both nights of presentation, May 5 and 6. The memory of Neil Boatright, who lost his life in an auto accident in December, will long remain in the hearts of his brothers. The fraternity greatly mourns the loss of this outstanding member. Happier things to remember: Pinning cere- monies — good men lost: Arms, Wooten, Staggs, Brown. Bayless: student body presi- dent. Bridgewater: " B " team coach. Ickes: pledge trip to police station.

Page 58 SIGMA TAU GAMMA Tln ' ta chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma frater- nity enjoyed one of its most successful years. With the help of Bob Smith, Weldon Dowden, and Bob Colville, the Taus were honored with the scholarship trophy for the second consecu- tive time. Under the leadership of President John Russell the Taus obtained top honors in the 1954 Homecoming with firsts in beauty float, humor float, and house decorations. Spirit and enthusiasm in all their efforts en- abled them to tie for first place for the greatest honor of the Homecoming activities, the supremacy trophy! Under the new intramural program, with competition among fraternities, the Taus won the football championship trophy and exhib- ited their strength in the other activities. Social functions are always a major item on the agenda. The 1954 Rose dance was held at the Maryville Country Club and Miss Sally Jackson was crowned Rose Queen. In addition to this spring highlight many other informal social functions were held. On different occasions the Tau Tones, a newly organized vocal group, made their appearance and were well received. Quad One, official home of the Taus, could relate many an exciting tale were she given the opportunity. The Taus are sincerely grateful for the kindness and helpful advice that our housemother, Mrs. Lawler, has given them throughout the year. The Taus sent Larry Jones and Rex Struck to the National convention in Milwaukee, Wis- consin. They brought back many helpful ideas which the Sig Taus hope to put into practice to make their organization even better and stronger in the coming year.

Behind the tacts and news of the activities of Delta Nil chapter ' s first year on campus are left the memories of social events, service, and fellowship. A memory is something that eludes the pen; however. Tommy TEKE re- calls the year ' s events in hopes they will stir up a few recollections from the smouldering ashes of the TEKE ' s first bonfire at NWMSC. A year ago May 15 and 16, Delta Nu be- came the one hundred and eighth unit of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Thirty-seven men were in- stalled as active members. Armed with their charter and mugs, they set out on their mis- sion. It was the year that the TEKE float went up in flames during the Homecoming parade. Ah! Tommy forgets all the work but not the hats the men sold, nor the Homecoming skit, nor Nancy Jamison besmeared with gold paint. The TEKES tied for first place with their beauty float, received second on their skit, and were given a third in all-over Home- coming participation. Smokers were held in September and Feb- ruary of the school year. The TEKES and Alpha Sigmas teamed together for a fire-chief ball held the first .semester. At Christmas time Tommy played Santa Claus for boys from the Noyes Home in St. Joseph. But it was the unscheduled events which linger longer; Reid Anderson ' s fare- well party, bridge with Mother Sherman, those 101 bull sessions, the odor of pop corn that frequently invaded Quad four, laughs, and no regrets. Oh, yes! Delta Nu chapter had officers, too. Tommy decided to let such who ' s who material lie hidden away in the minutes and files. He certainly has no intent to belittle anything and realizes he has omitted much important material from this write-up. All Tommy asks for is a lighted pipe and a quiet corner for meditation, so he can sit back and gaze at the likenesses of the men who were his brothers in the bond during a great year of books and memories.

Mike Hutcheon. Art Buckingham, Laverne Brown, Roger Cook, John Barrett. The Student Senate for 1955 operated un- der the presidency of Frank Bayless and the sponsorship of Dr. Surrey and Simons. The Senate has a list of responsibilities which range from Walkout Day supervision to the election of Homecoming Queen. The most closely guarded secret of the year was of course the date of Walkout Day. Many students, believing that the observance would be on a Monday in October, refrained from studying for tests. Teachers, on this Monday, greeted half-filled classrooms and found most of the students lining the windows in antici- pation of the traditional ringing of the bell. They waited in vain, however, as the event was not heralded until the following Wednes- day, Other Senate activities include the super- vision of the bulletin boards, supervision of elections, granting of concession stands, se- lection of a Who ' s Who Committee, revision of the Student Handbook, and selection of Social Committee members. The Senate also voted to take complete control of Walkout Day next year, and decided to revise the So- cial Committee. Officers of the Senate were J, D. Ham- mond, E.C.A. recorder; Gus Clothier and Kenny Moore, Treasurers; Marym Croy and Bettebelle Pitts, Secretaries. Annie Lou Cow- an filled the post of Parliamentarian as well as performing her duties as Vice-President. Bob Smith took the place of Zane Dodge as official " adjourner, " and John Barrett was the most prominent discussion leader. Page 63 SOCIAL COMMITTEE Front row: Joyce Brown, Teresa Tobin. Treasurer .

The social committee i.s a subdivision of the student senate whose membership is appointed. This group has the responsibility of planning and directing many of the .social activities of the college. This year the committee was charged with sponsoring Sadie Hawkins Day and the Christ- mas Ball, and co-sponsoring the Tower Dance. Fostciiim in;!n nitcr-dinner dances, after- game dances, and weekend movies was an additional duty performed by the group. Enthusiastic is the term that can be used to describe the student to the social activities. Not only were they well attended but everyone had a wonderful time and school spirit was strengthened.

A very important factor of higher education is contact with profe.ssionals in fields of litera- ture, diplomacy, and entertainment, and the awakening of an appreciation for these ad- mirable endeavors. It is the duty of the Assembly Committee to secure the services of the various speakers and entertainers who are to be presented at the regular weekly assemblies. The committee hopes to provide superior programs during the year 1956, which is the golden anniver- sary of our college. Members of the group are drawn from the faculty and the student body, with Dr. Surrey serving as chairman. Page 64 DORM AND QUAD COUNCIL Front How: Marcia Woodcock, Mrs. Elizabeth Luer.

Another busy year has drawn to a close for the twenty-six members of the Zeta Lambda Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, the national hon- orary society at Northwest Mi.ssouri State College. At the October meeting, Maxine Goff pre- sented and explained slides of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth of England. Maxine had taken the pictures during her trip to Europe. The Christmas party held in the Student Union Lounge proved to be a hilarious event. Who would have expected the " scholarly " members of Kappa Delta Pi to make such a gala event of drawing twenty-five cent gifts from a grab bag? Incidentally, Dr. Harr, the faculty counselor, displayed great talents as an artist during one of the contests. Again this year the pledges presented to the active members panel discussions on top- ics of interest to the group. In January these eighteen pledges were initiated into Kappa Delta Pi. Rev. Vaughn, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Maryville, spoke to the group dur- ing Religious Emphasis Week using the topic " Who Do I Believe? " Foreign students on campus presented a panel discussion for the February meeting. Members were enthusiastic in their interest in " Education in Foreign Lands. " The April Charter Day banquet held in the Lakeview Room of the Student Union building climaxed a year of fellowship and intellectual stimulation. Page 67 PT OMEGA PI Front How: Marjorie Person.

Jerry Sprong received the .surprise of his life when he discovered that although he was elected as vice-president of Pi Omega Pi, he was to serve as acting president this year. He was not particularly overburdened, how- ever, for he was well assisted by Alma Mur- rel as secretary, and Evelyn Finter as treas- urer. Mr. Richmond and Mrs. Persons watched over the group to see that the busi- ness was not all forgotten in favor of pleasure. Among the activities for the year was the Homecoming luncheon for a large group of alumni. Another program was the annual Christ- mas party. The following were properly initi- ated as active members: Mark Burns, Dirk Wilbur, Evelyn Finter, J. W. Stone, Jo Ann Meek, Frank Davis, and James Hamilton. Bingo was played as a prelude to the gift ex- change. Dirk Wilbur invaded Chicago in Decem- ber, or rather he invaded the 14th Biennial Convention held in Chicago. He returned with many interesting ideas including reports from the Palmer House, Cinerama, Club Wai- kiki, and Chinatown. But business is of prime importance to the business fraternity, and many projects were completed during the year, not the least of which was its service to the Student Loan Fund. During the first semester. Pi Omega Pi initiated as new members: Colleen Beggs, Donna Ross, Aleta Butler, Nancy Kariger, and John Patton. Page 68 COLHECON ? Front How: Arlene Rinehart.

Colhecon is the college section of AHEA and is made up of girls interested in home economics. Skits, parties, talks, and picnics, supple- mented by many other activities, briefly sum- marize the year ' s activity. To begin the year and to acquaint the freshmen with the club, Colhecon worked with Kappa Omicron Phi to give the freshmen a picnic at Roadside Park. In October nine enthusiastic girls were initiated into the organization. Think of twenty-four girls turning over ta- bles and lamps, looking behind and under chairs, each .searching for the hidden trea.sure which bore her name! THIS began the Christ- mas party! Refreshments were served by Mrs. Jaunita Myrtue, Carolee Evans and Karen Zach. After a short rest and the recovery of vim, vigor, and vitality, strenuous activities such as " passing the bell " were again re- sumed. One of the headline events of the year ' s activities was a trip to the state meeting at Jefferson City, March 2.5, where one of the members, Bonnie Henderson, presided as state president. Orchids go to her for a suc- cessful and enthusiastic meeting as well as for doing a tremendous job as state president this year. Outstanding programs of the year were: Dr. Cozine ' s talk on her European trip, Miss DeLuce ' s talk and demonstration on the use of accessories, Lili Glynos ' and Lorraine Mau ' s discussion of life in their home coun- tries, Dr. Roy Chevill ' s talk during religious emphasis week, and a style show.

Anthony, president emeritus of Kappa Omicron Phi, and the founding of the national home eco- nomics fraternity, will be presented to Alpha chapter at national conclave. The plaque will be placed in room 311 of the Administration Building where the idea for Kappa Omicron Phi originated. The idea of erecting the plaque was started at the regional meeting which was conducted on our campus in August 1954. Alpha Chapter was hostess to seven other chapters at the regional meeting. One of the highlights of the meeting was the banquet honoring Miss Anthony, founder of the or- ganization. Miss Anthony gave an inspiring address to the group. Mabel Cook, sponsor of Alpha Chap- ter and national president, will preside at the national conclave in Albuquerque, New Mex- ico, in August 1955. Kappa Omicron Phi with Colhecon ' s help decorated the Home Management House as a part of Homecoming activities. A coffee hour for returning alumni was also sponsored Ijy the group. Founders ' Day, December 11, was observed with the traditional candle lighting service, a dessert party, and an exchange of gifts. In the spring a banquet honoring seniors Annie Lou Cowan, Carolyn Risser, Pat Baker, Bar- bara Fox, Pat Cooper, and Roberta Kordes was sponsored by the other active members. Kitty Koo was the name chosen for the doll which the girls dressed and gave away at the Benefit Tea in December.

Using as the theme for the year, Children Learn Through Experience, Janet Mills, pres- ident of A.C.E., worked toward a broader un- derstanding of children. Credit for the success of the many activi- ties of the year, from the first coke party for new members to the senior breakfast, goes to the Social Committee which is headed by Janet McClard. A.C.E. took the third place honor in the Homecoming parade with their humorous float " Tumbling to Victory. " Success was probably due to the efforts of co-chairmen Marge Wallace and Mary Lou Hedstrom and much cooperation from the club. House deco- ration " Raggedy Ann and Andy, " planned by Beverly Garret, drew many well earned words of praise. Last spring the green and white " Bearcat " bus filled with members journeyed to Spring- field for the state A.C.E. convention. Sleepy members they were, too! Who wants to get up at 2:00 a.m. to start on a trip? Again this spring A.C.E. members boarded the bus, but this time their destination was the national convention held in Kansas City. Among many of the .social traditions of the organization were the Valentine party, given by Miss Millikan, the annual formal banquet served March 16, and the senior breakfast. In spite of the difficulties of a broken hip, received from a fall early in the new year. Miss Chloe Millikan was soon back giving her time and enthusiasm to the work of the or- ganization.

Fourteen aqua-belles were added to the roll of the Sigma Phi Dolphin Swim Cluli at the beginning of the year. In order to become members the girls had to pass certain tests, demonstrating their ability in various strokes and stunts. New Dolphins entertained the active mem- bers at the initiation with impromptu water ballets, original dives, and relays. One relay included swimming the length of the pool while reading a newspaper aloud. " Rainbow Rhythms " was the theme used for the animal swim show. The April pre.sentation included numbers that were planned and di- rected by the girls. Shirley Sierp, Marilyn O ' Conner, Barbara Kunze, Virginia Watkins, Dixie Moore, Shirley Dieterich, Nancy Kariger, Beverly Blohm, and Pat Adams were directors of individual num- bers presented the night of the Big Splash. Top notch originality was displayed in such numbers as " Blue Moon, " " Deep Purple, " " Little Brown Jug, " and " Black Magic. " High school students were entertained on Senior Day by a short program and demon- stration given by the Dolphins. Officers for this year of success were Nancy Kariger, president; Marjorie White, vice-presi- dent; and Pat Adams, stunt captain. Miss Bonnie Magill is the sponsor of the Dolphins. Page 75 DANCE CLUB %-- ' V . ' ' y Dance Club, an active organization on cam- pus, is enjoyed by both members and audiences for whom the members perform. One of the outstanding activities of this group during the fall semester was the Decem- ber assembly. Audience favorites from the program were dance numbers " Sleigh Ride " and " Horseplay. " Miss Hysler is to be especially commended for her outstanding abilities as dance director and costume designer. Much of her time is freely given in attempting to perfect each number and in designing just the right cos- tume for it. Dance Club is open to everyone and is fun for all who take an active part. The Spring Dance Club Recital was the most outstanding of all programs given by the group, and was received enthusiastically by a large audience. Much hard work goes into rehearsals for the programs, but there are funny incidents which make each rehearsal period enjoyable, such as the curtain opening to the accompaniment of totally unfamiliar music.

On the first Monday of every month the girls in the group enjoyed dinner together at the Student Union, after which the regular meeting was held. The annual PEM Club Homecoming break- fast was held bright and early on that eventful day and present members joyously welcomed familiar alumni such as Mallard Maune, Lois Jean Kemper, and Vernelle Cox back to the campus. Northwest Missouri was well represented at the Sports Day held in Kirk.sville on March 12th. Elizabeth Cushman, Phyllis Hayes, Ann Corli-ss, Nancy Rainey, Nancy Kariger. Pat Adams, Virginia Watkins, Ruth Ruthemeyer. Marilyn O ' Conner, Barbara Kunze, Barbara Benning, Sandra Hayzlett, and Dixie Moore comprised the volleyball team that partici- pated against eight other teams. During the course of the year, enlightening discussions were held on subjects ranging from the simplest form of sport to the most complex. The year came to a close with a picnic, which as usual was loads of fun. All in all, PEM Club experienced a very interesting year. Dixie Moore. Nancy Kariger, Marilyn O ' Conner filled the executive posts, and Miss Bonnie Magill and Miss Doris Hysler offered their supervision. Page 77 W. A. A.

The Women ' s Athletic Association, which was organized on the campus in 1925, is the center of women ' s recreational activities. The purpose of the organization is to promote interest and activity in women ' s recreational sports. It encourages school spirit and sports- manship through team and individual com- petition while providing excellent opportunity for any girl who is interested in sports to participate. The year opened with activity in individual sports such as archery, badminton, aerial darts, shuffleboard, and table tennis. The round robin tournament in basketball, which is normally organized during the winter months, was not held this year, but the event will remain on future schedules if enough interest is shown. Janice Commons, Judy Beemer, Judy Cross, Arlene Uthe, and Katherine Buttermore rep- resented the W. A. A. in the bowling tourna- ment for women students which was graciously sponsored by the Nodaway Lanes Bowling Alley. The W. A. A. and PEM Club shared duties and profits of the operation of the concession stand at the basketball game with Springfield. Barbara Kunze was in charge. Officers for the year were Barbara Kunze, President; Phyllis Hayes, Vice-President; Ann Corless, Secretary-Treasurer; and Janice Com- mons, reporter. Miss Bonnie Magill is the sponsor.

Their float, " The Bear Went Over The Mountain, " placed .second in the humorous division. As in previous years, coffee and hospitality were offered to Aggie alumni at the farm shop. Second highlight of the year was the an- nual Barnwarming. In the spotlight was Miss Marilyn Madden, crowned as 1954 Barn- warming Queen. The evening ' s events were preceded by the ceremony at which the dates of the club members were put to official test. The fellows, led by master of ceremonies, Charles Brown, assembled on the steps of Residence Hall. One by one, the girls were called forth to answer some pertinent and simple question. Upon her inevitable failure to do so, each girl was given the alternative of kissing either her date or the mascot, a goat. Events of a more serious nature included a livestock judging contest and the subsequent award banquet. Don Blackford skillfully ac- cumulated the most points and was presented with the coveted Golden Bull. Last spring the Ag team placed second in both Junior and Senior divisions at the Okla- homa Intercollegiate Livestock Judging Con- test. They were awarded a first in beef cattle judging in the Junior division.

Although construction has not yet been begun, the plans have been drawn and it is expected to be finished this year. The repainting of the identification signs for each of the buildings on the campus was finished this year also. Another of the projects is the conversion of the southeast corner of the Bearcat Den into a dance floor. A. P. O. contributed a wild west theme to the pageantry of the Homecoming parade. After a frantic and extensive search, a genuine stagecoach was found by President Don War- ford and some of the other memb ers. Elbert Blair ably directed the Variety skit and the entry in the house decoration competition also placed well. In November, the fraternity traveled as a group to the Sportsmen ' s dinner in Mound City, where they enjoyed sampling the bear, moose, elk, and other rare game meats which were included on the menu. The members of Alpha Phi Omega wish to acknowledge their debt to their sponsors, Mr. Myrl Long and Mr. Leonard Lev ' . who have contributed tireless assistance and support. Officers for the second semester are: Bill Schultz, president; John Harvey, vice-presi- dent; Eldon Patterson, secretary; Elbert Blair, treasurer; Hiram Lilley, reporter; Stanley Stuart, projects chairman. Page 81 ARMORY DEDICATION Page 82 PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE You will enjoy this issue of the TOWER. It tells the story of life on the campus of your favorite college in an interesting manner. Herein we have a clever use of an idea by the resourceful editorial staff of the TOWER. I wish to congratulate them on the excellent TOWER of 195.5. But to those of you who look at the TOWER I would add a few words of caution. Be not misled by this presentation. Life on the campus of the Northwest Missouri State College is not so easily classified into daily activities. In each day ' s activities there will be found some of each of the activities shown in the Tower. On some days certain activities seem to dominate. Inspection of what goes on wiU show some of each of the things herein happen every day. That is what makes life on the college campus so interesting, and I hope, worth while. As our students live through the seven activ- ities in each day ' s life on the campus I trust that they will develop those traits of character which Chaucer attributed to the knight, who was the first person he described in his Canter- bury Tales. This knight loved chivalry, truth, honor, freedom, and courtesy. In his life he practiced the virtues he loved. A college educa- tion that is so designed as to bring into the environment of its students the activities shown in this TOWER will contribute to the development of these same virtues — and give the student an opportunity to live by them. — J. W. Jones Page 83 BOARD OF REGENTS 4 L Hr H B ' " ' mJ ' K- ' . ! Experiences, ideas, and activities which will result in the development and expansion of Northwest Missouri State College are of prime concern to the Board of Regents. Members of the l)oard are appointed by the Governor of Missouri by and with the advice and consent of the Senate. The college is under the general control and management of its Board of Regents. By law the Board of Regents has the responsibility of establishing the policies under which the school is operated. Those who are members of the board are Mr. M. E. Ford, Maryville, president; Mr. Harold M. Hull, Mary- ville: Mr. R. L. Douglas, St. Joseph; Mr. W. M. C. Dawson, Grant City; Mr. H. F. Simrall, Liberty; Mr. A. B. Vogt, Stanberry. and Mr. Hubert Wheeler, member ex officio. Mr. W. A. Rickenbrode, Maryville, is secretary of the board. DEAN OF FACULTY DEAN ' S MESSAGE In the present year final plans are being made for the introduction of a graduate program at Northwest Mis- .souri State College. This is a forward step in teacher education and one which will be of benefit to many students of the college as well as to the public schools of Missouri. The great concern today is a shortage of qualified teachers, but enlightened thinking is directed also toward constant improvement in the quality of teachers. A pro- gram embracing five years of formal study even now is viewed as a desirable minimum in the preparation of a teacher. Your college is dedicated to the dual task of prepar- ing more and better teachers for the public schools of Missouri. W. A. Brandenburg Page 84 DIRECrOR OF S ' lUDENF ACTIVITIES DIvVN OF MEN Miss Lois Simons serves the college in the position of Director of Student Activities. Prior to this first year as a staff member at NWMSC she served at the Naval District Headquarters in Seattle. Washington, and on the Recruit Training Staff at Bainbridge, Maryland. As a civilian, she taught physical education at LaCrosse, Wisconsin, and was an Admissions Coun.selor at the University of Wisconsin. She holds the B.S. and M.S. degrees. Mr. Lon Wilson schedules men ' s labor, su- pervises men ' s housing and serves as counselor of men. During the of the year he is in contact with almost all the male students on campus. He also is a spon.sor of the Inter- Fraternity Council. He holds the B.S. and M.A. degrees. REGISTRAR - COLLEGE TREASURER No student at Northwest Missouri State College will ever forget the friendly smile and helpful advice of Mr. Robert Foster. He assists students with their schedules. His office is in charge of all records, grades and transcripts. He has been in charge of this department since 1948. Mr. Luther Belcher has been the treasurer of our college for the past two years. Besides handling the daily business affairs, he is in charge of all the student labor, w-ages and records pertaining to financial matters. His office regulates the incoming and outgoing money of each organization directly sponsored by the college. Page 85 DIRECTOR OF FIELD SERVICES As Director of Field Services, Everett W. Brown has a variety of responsibilities. Field Service is a combination of three offices, Placement, Extension and Public Relations. The Placement Office is responsible for placing graduates and alumni of the college in .suitable positions, and the placement bureau is in contact with high school superintendents at all times to see that the graduates are having the best of advantages. Extension courses offered to persons who are not enrolled in the daily classes of the college are the prime concern of the Extension Office and in turn the Public Relations office is in charge of all school publicity. Mr. Brown ' s versatility is proved in many other ways such as his visits to high .school seniors for student recruitment and his assistance to various departments on numerous planned days, such as Play Day, Spring Contests and Senior Day. GUIDANCE Dr. Koerble, Director of Counseling and Guidance, is responsible for aiding the students in making their adjustments to college and in reach- ing the goal of collegiate success. His is the personal touch that makes students aware that this college is interested in the progress and success of the individual. In addition to the duties of counseling, Dr. Koerble is an instructor in the Department of Education in the area of mental hygiene and in techniques and principles of counseling. This is Dr. Koerble ' s first year on this campus. He holds B.S., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees. HEALTH AND WELFARE Pearl Dawson Thelma Smith Ruth Burke Elizabeth Luer W. A.

The idea of men and women together com- prising teams and vying for honors with simi- lar teams in organized and supervised compe- tition is comparatively new, but the plan has proved to be one of the finest socializers in the modern educational system. NWMSC can be indeed proud that it is among the leaders in developing such a program. Under the plan, actual mixed team and mixed doubles competition is offered in swim- ming, tennis, badminton, volleyball, ping pong, and golf. Only occasionally is it neces- sary to modify the standard rules of the game to make them applicable to co-recreational participation. In such case the Co-recreational Council is called upon to provide jurisdiction. The Council consists of the five men of the Intramural Commission, assisted by five women chosen in an identical manner. The broadest purpose of the Council is to promote interest in the program in general since it is definitely a pioneering organization operating in a new field. To this end the recreational facilities of the college are open with supervision on definite regularly posted hours. The gymnasium and the pool are utilized and the tennis courts are lighted on two nights per week. Keep up the enthusiasm, guys and gals, and look to the future when bowling will be added to the Co-rec list! Strike! Page 91 ii M " CLUB Front Hoiv: Daryl E. Flint. Ronald O ' Dell.

The " M " Club, an organization whose aim is to promote and uphold the standards of the college through athletics, is composed of men who have completed the prescribed require- ments for lettering in a varsity sport. Under the leadership of President Duane Freeman, the club functioned to promote good sportsmanship among the fans as well as players, to encourage wholehearted par- ticipation in all sports, either as a spectator or player, and to develop an attitude of team- work instead of individual participation in all of the functions of the school. Fall activities found the club staging a successful Walkout Day and sponsoring a Dads ' Night football game which was followed by a banquet for the players and their par- ents. February 26, the " M " Club presented the annual " M " Club Ball, with music by Dee Peterson. Nancy Jameson was chosen queen, and her attendants were Wanda Dugger and Nancy Rainey. Members of the club acted as hosts to high school basketball teams of the area in the county, subregional. and regional tourna- ments. In the spring, the club handled all of the arrangements and activities of the 195.5 High School District Track Meet, during which a high school girl from the district was selected and crowned queen. The " M " Club picnic rounded out the year ' s activities. Page 92 441% f99 M " CLUB DANCE Page 93 INTRAMURAL COMMISSION Front row. Daryl E. Flint. Roger I ' ouk, Chairman. H. D. Peterson. Sponsor. ach row. Dick Phillips, Larry Jones. George Haskey The Intramural Commission was established in 1947 under the slogan " Sports For All. " The objective of the group is to supplement the regular sports program of the school so that no one who has an interest, regardless of ability, will be left out. It of course provides for wholesome recreation for any student in his spare time. Five members promote the system and keep the program running smoothly. One represen- tative is selected from each of the three frater- nities, one from the Independent Club, and one non-organizational member is included. These athletically minded fellows furnish excel- lent supervision while the teams are being organized and set up schedules for the differ- ent tournaments. These are the boys to see if you have gripes about rules or officials. Rules for the various competitive sports and an established point system are recorded in the " Intramural and Co-Recreational Sports Handbook " which is available through Dr. Peterson, who sponsors both groups. Playing in the intramurals provides more than the thrill of competition and personal .satisfaction in winning. The traveling suprem- acy trophy is awarded to the organization with the largest accumulation of points throughout every phase of the competition. The individual who garners the most points for himself also receives a trophy which offers some basis for recognizing him as one of the outstanding athletes on the campus.

Plagued by lack of reserve strength and untimely injuries, the 1954 Bearcats finished the season with a record of 2 wins and 6 losses. The Maryville " Ironmen " opened the sea- son with a brilliant 20-7 victory over a pre- season picked, Nebraska Wes- leyan. William Jewell topped the Bearcats 13-7 on an unearned run. The Jewell defeat was fol- lowed by a 20-7 loss to Ft. Hays State of A tired, reserveless Maryville eleven, lead- ing 20-18 at halftime, gave up a fourth quar- ter touchdown and lost to Kirksville. Rolla ' s Miners followed by beating the Cats in their second conference game 19-13. Fired up before 7,500 homecoming fans, the Cats pasted Springfield 20-6. This victory was followed by two conference losses, 12-6 and 27-6 to Warrensburg and Cape Girard- eau, respectively. Darrell Walker with 51 points, O ' Dell, Mal- len, Monachino, G. Walker, and Baldwin fig- ured in the Bearcats ' season scoring. Darrell Walker and Ernie Hutchings were selected to the all-conference first team, with second team honors going to Mark Burns and Bill Baldwin. Seniors donning the green and white for the last time were Gillett, Hutchings, and Baldwin, tri-captains, Burns, Monachino, G. Walker, Agenstein, and Swaney.

Under the guidance of a new coach, Robert Gregory, the Bearcat basketball team ran up a season record of 9 wins against 11 losses, during 1954-55. A record of 3 wins and 7 losses placed the Cats fifth in the MIAA Conference. Sophomore Daryl Flint, leading scorer for Maryville last year, repeated his performance this year with a 15 point per game average. Flint was followed by senior Ono Monachino, who averaged 14 points per game. Both boys, besides being leading .scorers, proved them- selves invaluable in the rebounding depart- ment, as they worked both the offensive and defensive boards tirelessly. Monachino, a four year letterman, finished his hardwood career by joining Flint on the second MIAA conference team. Lost by gradu- ation besides Ono are guards Jim Swaney, a two year letterman, and Bill Baldwin, a three year letter winner, and forward John Garner, a four year letterman.

During half-time they present outstanding drills for the entertainment of the crowds. This year their performances were particularly snappy under the leadership of Director Earle Moss, and Drum Major Corwin Elliott. When bas- ketball season rolls around the band continues its activity. A pep band entertains at every home game. During the remainder of each semester, the band spends mo t of its time in the prep- aration and presentation of concerts both on and off the campus. The group made its an- nual concert tour of neighboring communitie:; in northwest Missouri. This year brought about an experiment in progressive jazz with the College having its first faculty sponsored jazz group under the guidance of Mr. Moss. The book was the end and the cats blew up a storm on several per- sonal arrangements by Mr. Moss. A real gone time was had by all. Although the band is an activity of the Mu- sic Division, membership is not restricted to music majors. It is open to all students. Sen- ior music majors are given excellent oppor- tunities to act as directors. Outstanding stu- dents share conducting honors with the leader at concert time. Much emphasis is placed on the literature and materials which will be useful to the student after graduation. Page 110 BAND ' f Front Row: Frances Seat. Marcia Ely, Wanda David.

Wretha Jar is, Tamara Kennedy, Roena Gossett, Of all the activities sponsored by the Music Divi.-,ion, the Tower Choir is one of the most important and rewarding. This year revealed the best sounding group we have had in re- cent years, besides being the strongest in numbers. Well remembered by the students will be the fine programs presented on the campus. Among these were the Christmas assembly presented in conjunction with the speech de- partment in which Vaughn Williams ' Festival Te Deum and the incidental music to the Christmas play, Why the Chimea Rang, made a most effective impression. The choir made its regular tour of high schools in this area, presenting a diversified program ranging from historical choral works to selections from The Student Prince. The trip encompassed several towns in the north- west Missouri area, as well as an appearance at St. Joseph Junior College and one radio performance. The choir owes particular thanks to George Green for his untiring assistance at the piano. The pr esentation of Gian Carlo Menotti ' s one-act comic opera, The Telephone, featur- ing Barbara Stuber and Jack Hill, was a source of much fun and real pleasure. Another subdivision of the Choir was the Madrigal group, which presented some charming exam- ples of early vocal expression. Biggest production of the second .semester was Mendelssohn ' s great oratorio, Elijah, which was presented very impressively under the direction of the choir ' s leader, Gilbert Whitney.

They must make arrangements for the variety show, pep rally, parade and dance; make signs and posters; and select judges for the various events. Faculty sponsor Dr. John Harr and chairman Earl Bridgewater did an excellent job in seeing that the committee made Homecoming of 1954 a bang-up event! The skits represented everything from the life of Coach Milner to an impersonation of Mr. J. W. Bearcat. The Tri-Sigmas took top honors in giving a rendition of Coach Milner ' s life; we even met " Mother Milner. " Versatile emcee Lyle Martin and his assistant Bugs Williams pleased everyone with their jokes and hill-billy music. The climax to the 1954 Vari- ety Show was the crowning of Queen Pat Boydston. Where else but at Old State would you see " This Old House " come chugging down the street? The TKES weren ' t satisfied by winning first place with their beautiful float; they wanted some excitement! Those golden statues suddenly came to life when the float caught on fire. Again the fighting Bearcats lived up to their reputation of winning their Homecoming game by rolling the Springfield Bears. The climax to the Homecoming weekend came with the Homecoming dance, which was attended by many students, friends, and Alums.

The Student Christian Association seeks to provide an opportunity for students to unite in the realization of a full and creative life and a growing knowledge of God through worship, study, and action. To this end, a well-rounded program of social and religious activities was prepared and directed by the student officers and the club sponsors. Opening the fall semester with an outing, the S.C.A. group enjoyed the usual picnic with games and toasted marshmallows. The S.C.A. ' s spiritual activities reached a double peak in the first semester. First, the Mary- ville group journeyed to Tarkio, taking with them Mr. Gerhard Krapf, who was featured on the program. The second peak was reached when the Rev. David Thomas gave his inspir- ing message at the annual Christmas ban- quet. The S.C.A. concluded its activities of the first semester by carolling for retired fac- ulty members and by presenting a needy fam- ily with a ba.sket of food.
