THE 1945 TOWER Editor: JENNY ROSE BENNETT Business Manager: YVONNE YEATER e ViiW a record of our college in this year, dedicated to those who have gone from its halls to serve the flag. EG To the men and women who once taught courses and attended classes within the walls of our college, we have chosen to dedicate the 1945 Tower, honor- ing their sacrifice and recording the efforts of those who spent this year here, in preparation for service, both in the armed and unarmed forces of our nation, in days to come. The Bearcat, symbol of our spirit, has been more studious, more ambitious and more serious in work and play this year in an attempt to match the ac- complishments of those to whom this book is dedi- cated. The Bearcat ' s record of this year is taken from his own letter to Bill . . . CoL Bilby Sees Winter of Hard Decorated Hying l-ot ss Fliers Are Fo- Capt.

Sgt. Bill Bearcat United States Army Dear Bill, Just a few lines from the old Alma Mater, where you are among the most talked about, thought about and written to men on the campus. You couldn ' t be more popular even if you were here. Again our College is off to a flying start, defeating the Washburn grid team on the eve of registration day. September 4, Bill, was a great day when the cream of the midwest ' s female crop and a few greatly appreciated civilian men joined men of the V-12 unit for the fall term. The navy welcomed us to school with a happy hour the first week and we returned the favor with an all school dance the following night, making Saturday night the best night in that week. Sorry you missed the music department ' s assembly when we got our first impression of Mr. Hartzell, new dept. head. You ' d have been especially proud of Miss Dykes, who has time to play in the string ensemble, while struggling to get the Missourian to our Bearcat buddies. Food rationing has made sorority rush parties a little difficult, but the co-eds are just as cute, there ' s no shortage of the old school spirit and the Phi Sigs carry on with a smoker for sailors, mostly. Trees on the campus in October reminded us of Walkout Day, and that being a good idea we fortunate citizens observed the tradition once again, October 10. To save shoe leather and coupons we danced in our socks after a victory over Pittsburg on Friday, the 13th. It wasn ' t luck, the Bearcats are just naturally good. Parties honoring V-12 transferees were in season at the end of the quarter and vacation finds me in my favorite work, my letter to Bill. Before closing, here ' s a last minute flash for you... Milner ' s men finished one of the first undefeated seasons in the nation; our hero, George Willis Campbell, was nominated for little All-American and Miss Jodie Montgomery was crowned football queen. ■ Six Archer and Gorden, the original Eager Beavers . . .

Seven Dear Bill, We went " back to school in November with all navy men in the dorm, civilian men in the Quad and Miss Villar ' s " Topper " gone forever from our campus. We accentuated the opposite the first week of the term — leap week in leap year was extra special, concluded with a Sadie Hawkins ' dance. Such capers were followed immediately " by our annual personal appraisal clinic. We " circled left and formed a star " through the courtesy of the Dance Club, who entertained at an all- school square dance, with fiddle and everything. The speech department won our approval with " Wild Hobby Horses " which they presented in assembly, November 22, before we enjoyed a short but thankful-for Thanksgiving vacation. Alpha Phi Omega initiated members, Varsity Villagers went formal for a " Harvest Moon " dance, and November was gone. Bienvenida Santos brought us greetings from the Philippines where our interests have been for some time. The Bearcats opened their basketball barrage against Rosecrans Field, December 13. Christmas parties were held as usual with special emphasis on giving and good will. Once more the lobby of Residence Hall was the scene of the traditional " Hanging of the Greens. " Our Christmas present to all the guys like you was an over subscription of our war bond quota, applying the heat to the Axis and ou r sales thermometer. The New Year found us knee deep in basketball games, studies, bookstore sessions, studies, Den dances and studies. The annual series of February lectures was inter- rupted by a coal shortage, but you can ' t stop our faculty. Snow and ice storms made the long walk more like an obstacle course than the scenic path you remember. The navy had the situation well in hand by February 10 when sailors and their best girls reported for duty at the second annual V-12 Ball. Local co-eds were strictly in awe of those queenly South Dakota girls. Both civilian and navy students took their best manners and went to a reception given by the faculty in the Residence Hall parlor, February 13. As the quarter ended we said goodbye to Coach Ryland Milner, who entered an army special service unit to conduct athletic clinics overseas. Maybe you ' ll be seeing him. Eight .Q 5 .

No chance to sit by your favorite sailor in classes now. Big event of the month of March was the election of Blaine Steck and Mary Lloyd Taul as Prexy and Vice-Prexy of the Student Body for the coming year. The dignified Seniors let their hair down once again at their annual party given by sponsors Dykes and Carruth. The Northwest Missouri Choral Society gave us inspir- ing Easter music with Hilda Hamblin, a graduate, doing solos. Under the heading of propaganda, and good at that, we entertained seniors from Iowa and Missouri in the annual High School Senior Lay, April 2. Sherwood Eddy and Dr. Leo K. Bishop and others were guests during Religious Emphasis Week with encouragement and guidance for students who are trying to carry on normal College lives for the building of tomorrow ' s world. Chapel services every morning have been doing the same thing. William Hain was presented in a major entertainment and proudly presented in student recitals were Margaret Baker, Mary Ellen Tebow, Betty McPherson, Jodie Montgomery and M. L. Rusk. We pledged our efforts to President Harry S. Truman, as we grieved the loss of American youth ' s most gallant leader, Franklin D. Roosevelt. After being hosts to the high school music and speech festivals, we increased our enrollment with short course students. The Women ' s Ensemble and Dance C lub combined their recitals for an unforgettable performance. The 1945 Tower went to press and those who survived the anxiety found they had elected Mary Lu Rusk queen of the book. While caps and gowns were in style, many members of the class of 1945 were wearing G.I. colors this year. We paused in Commencement Week to hope that this year in college will not have been in vain for us who were here and for those of you who lost this year of College Life and gained our admiration and respect for your unmatched accomplishments.

We visioned pictures of all the students, in class sections, and in campus candid shots, but our visions vanished as film was prac- tically impossible to get. We unwillingly gave up the wonderful things we had dreamed of for this year ' s TOWER, accepting what we believed was the best choice. So we have published the 1945 TOWER, convinced that it matters not the quantity of materials used in its publication. Stu- dents and faculty are the TOWER ' S story and they have not changed in quality since yearbooks were tilled with beautiful col- ors and full-page pictures. The questions of what you, who were in college this year, did on behalf of your fellowmen-men during the war years, the 1945 TOWER has tried to answer. The TOWER alone is not enough to dedicate to the men and women who call this their College while they are in service, but the publication of the book represents the freedom of expression and educational development for which they fight. To the preser- vation of those ideas we have dedicated ourselves in the year of which this book is a record. rhirtccu JODIE MONTGOMERY A talented singer ... a Who ' s Who-er . . .

The administra- tion and faculty of our College have added another year to their record of service to youth. Those who have taught civilian students have done as much as those who taught only navy classes. Our faculty has as always, been a comfort and a guidance to those entrusted to their instruction. Symbolic of the inspiration our faculty offers, was the life of Dr. Henry A. Foster, who died August 7, 1944. His practice of high ideals and their influence is a living tribute in the memory of our College. Dr. Henry A. Foster Eighteen PRESIDENT LAMKIN Determined that today ' s youth shall not lack the educational pre- paredness that tomorrow will de- mand, President Uel W. Lamkin has directed the adjustments of our College to the greatest possible service. He has faced increasing difficulties with the stamina and courage all who know him, respect and admire. We gratefully recognize the performance of service in the supervision of our College by members of the Board of Regents. FIRST ROW: Mr. E. C. Curfman, Maryville, Mo. President Mr. R. L.

The STC Bearcats battled through a seven-game football schedule to place their name on the roll of ten teams in the nation, completing grid seasons with- out a loss. For this fine record, Coach Ryland Milner ' s ' Cats were invited to the Sun Bowl at El Paso, Texas. The bid had to be turned down, however, be- cause many of the Navy members of the team had been transferred to other stations. Undefeated teams are nothing new to Coach Milner, this being his third undefeated team since he came to M.S.T.C. This year ' s team scored 206 points while holding their opponents to 21 points. The team began practice early in August, with Bob Ambrose and John Williams the only returning men from Coach Milner ' s 1943 team. Only a few of the other boys had had any previous college experience. The first game of the season was played September 1, when many fans were still interested in the pennant race in the American Baseball league. It didn ' t take long to change the follower ' s interest, however, as the Bearcats smashed to a 27-0 victory over Washburn College of Topeka, Kansas.

THIRD ROW: W. Aitken, R. Stempel, I. Rose, J. Dieterich, R. Crump, M. Gaiter, G. Watson. FOURTH ROW: J. Smith, G. Grant, A. Embree, K. Johann, J. Dorough, B. Hutchison. George Campbell, speedy 150-pound tailback, was the big gun in the attack as he scampered around the Ichabod line with ease, scoring one touch- down and making several sparkling dashes. Campbell was only a part of the big show, however. Jerome Zukauskas, big STC quarterback, plunged over for one touchdown and converted three extra points. Fullback Lou Vie- cilli, also tallied a touchdown and a thirteen-yard pass from Charles Currington to End Jake Holmes was good for a six pointer. Guards Bob Ambrose, Norman Penfold, Center Julius Stagner and End M. B. Huntley stood out in the hard-fighting Bearcat line. The Bearcats next journeyed to Marshall, Mo., for a game with Missouri Valley. The lineup had to be shifted as Bob Ambrose was lost to the team for the remainder of the season and several other key players were left at home on the restricted list. Fifty-Seven WRITE UP - STATISTICS Missouri Valley held the Maryville team scoreless until two minutes before the halftime period, when George Campbell ran back a punt for a touchdown. In the next minute, Paul Petrofsky caught a long pass to score again. The Bearcats scored four more touchdowns in the second half, and the game ended 38 to for the ' Cats. Ends Jim Swanson and Jack Dieterich, Tackle John Williams and Guard Basil Smith sparked the line play. The Bearcats were on the road the next week when they went to Pittsburg, Kans., and turned back the Teachers, 26 to 13. Pitts- burg outgained the Maryville club rushing, but the ' Cats used a smoth passing attack to good advantage. Viecelli scored the first Maryville touchdown when he plunged over from the four-yard line, using a 46-yard pass as a set-up. Shortly before the half ended, Zukauskas went over for the Bear- cats ' second score. In the third quarter, Swanson intercepted a Pittsburg pass and ran 50 yards for a score. The Bearcats quickly tallied again when Campbell caught a pass on the two-yard line and Bob Grubbs made the touchdown on a plunge. The next game found the Bearcats at home against the War- rensburg STC. The Mules threw a scare into Maryville when they recovered a fumble on the Bearcat 35-yard line in the first quarter. Two plays later the Mules passed to a touchdown, to lead 6 to 0. The ' Cats came back quickly, however, with Petrofsky head- ing the attack and making several long gains to carry the ball to the two-yard line, where Viecelli plunged over. Campbell tallied two touchdowns in the second half and Currington accounted for one. Zukauskas kicked 3 extra points and Eugene Becker con- verted one to make the final score: Maryville, 28; Warrensburg, 6. Tackle Irving Rose, Guard Bob Shillito, and Center Stagner led the line. TDDTBALL QUEEN Members of the football squad chose Miss Jodie Montgomery of Maryville as " pin-up " girl for the unbeaten and untied Bearcats of 1944 and honored her at a coronation dance in October. At- tendants to the queen were Miss Bernetta Cushman, Maryville; Miss Berniece Goforth, Savannah; Miss Janet Drennan, Corning, Iowa; and Miss Mary Lloyd Taul Smithville. Fifty-Eight WRITE UP - STATISTICS The Bearcats next turned back the Peru, Nebraska Teachers, 29 to 0, in a game that featured the alert line play of the ' Cats. Campbell and Petrofsky, aided by hard blocking, made several long gains. Petrofsky tallied two touchdowns and Viecelli made one. The highlight of the game was a 40-yard return of an inter- cepted pass for a touchdown by Williams. Bob Shillito tackled a Peru ball carrier for a safety and sur-footed Zukauskas booted 3 extra points. The punting of Ned Bishop was superb and the line play of Swanson, Rose, Williams, Shillito, and Stagner could not be beaten. Maryville played Washburn for the second time the following game at Topeka, Kans. The Bearcats won easily, turning back the Ichabods, 25 to 0. The Cats scored in every quarter except the third. Campbell again ran wild against the Ichabods, receiving help from the outstanding in the line, including Swanson, Williams, Penfold, Shillito and Stagner. The Bearcats finished the season in a glorious final game, running over the Pittsburg Teachers, 33 to 2 on the home field. All of the team had a hand in the victory and specidl credit went to Campbell and Viecelli. f Viecelli scored early in the second quarter for Maryville ' s first score. Zukauskas kicked the point. The second score, also in the second quarter, came on a precise 33-yard heave from Morris Gaiter to Campbell in the end zone. Pittsburg forced Maryville into a safety in the third quarter to make the score, 13 to 2. Shortly after the fourth quarter started the Gorillae punted to Campbell, who scampered through the entire Pittsburg team for 55 yards and a touchdown. Viecelli recorded another touch- down immediately and Zukauskas kicked the goal. In the waning minutes of the game, with an entire team of reserves on the field, Joe Dorrough plunged over from the three- yard line for a touchdown and Glen Sullivan scored the extra point to close the season ' s scoring. We rated headlines in the " Stars and Stripes " and an invita- tion to the Sun Bowl. The team had been scattered by Navy transfers, but we were no longer " unheard of.

BASKETBALL SEASON Rejoicing in an undefeated season, the Bearcat again went into action to uphold his honor and name in the 1945 basketball season, with Jim Corken and Blaine Steck, lettermen, returning. The third member of the sguad having previous cage experience was Don Barber and men of the Navy V-12 unit with outstanding high school records in the game, reported to defend the name of the Bearcat on the hardwood. The ' Cats opened their season with a home game against the soldiers of Rosecrans Field who claimed victory over us by a two point margin, in a game that predicted action in games to follow. We were hosts to Peru, Nebraska, Teachers on January 3, and at the end were out in front by a 25-point lead, the score reading 45 to 20. By now, Coach Milner was using Steck and Swanson as guards; Corken and Rensbarger at forward positions; switching Mitchell and Koester as center, and continually shifting his men to find a strong defense and aggressive offense. In the game against Peru, every Bearcat went into the game and still the sccre mounted for us. Park College went home at the long end of a 20-27 score defeating us on our own court, Jan- uary 5. Seeking revenge, we met Rosecrans Flyers in a return engagement on their court January 10, and won, but once again that two-point margin was left on the scoreboard as the game ended. Si. h -One The local cagers won by a 36 to 28 score over Fort Leavenworth G. I. ' s in a game at Leaven- worth, January 12. Games in the basketball season followed in close succession and interest in- creased among our fans as the Bearcats faced greater opposition. Lee Ransbarger, tow-headed sailor, pushed through seven one-handed field goals to give the Bearcats a victory over Rockhurst College by a score of 39 to 28 on the home floor, January 15. We split the next two away-from-home games between victory and defeat, winning over War- rensburg Mules by a 57 to 31 score, and losing to Olathe Naval Air Station the following night by another two-point margin, the Clippers scoring 43 to our 41. To the amazement of Bearcat followers we defeated the strong Pratt-Whitney team of Kansas City by a margin of six points, the score being 42 to 38. Fort Leavenworth evened their score with us by defeating the ' Cats 37 to 39, in a game here January 26. We won again over Rockhurst in Kansas City and once more over Warrensburg on our own court. Pratt-Whitney defeated us by a score of 39 to 50 on their own floor, February 7. We lost to our precious victim, Peru, at Peru, on February 14, by a three-point edge, 43 to 46. We completed the season with two victories, winning over Park College at Park by a 38 to 32 score, and defeating the Olathe Clippers by a score of 39 to 35 in our gymnasium. Members of the 1944-45 squad who gave us a thrilling season of basketball in the traditional Bearcat spirit were Steck, Jack Dieterich, Corken, Jim Swanson, Norman Mitchell, Russell Koester, Ronald Wood, Joe Shoulders, Rensberger, Barber Don Culhane, Bowlby, Don McRae, Jack Summers, B. Grigsby and George Watson. The ' Cat cage club accounted for ten wins and six losses in a season of games with teams from colleges, service stations and war plants. 1944-45 BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Date Opponent Place We They Dec. 13 Rosecrans Field here 26 28 Jan. 3 Peru Teachers here 45 20 Jan. 5 Park College here 20 27 Jan. 10 Rosecrans Field there 47 45 Jan. 12 Fort Leavenworth there 36 28 Jan. 15 Rockhurst College here 39 28 Jan. 19 Warrensburg STC there 57 31 Jan. 20 Olathe Naval Base there 41 43 Jan. 24 Pratt-Whitney here 42 38 Jan. 26 Fort Leavenworth here 37 39 Jan. 31 Rockhurst College there 45 22 Feb. 2 Warrensburg STC here 54 32 Feb. 7 Pratt-Whitney there 39 50 Feb. 14 Peru Teachers there 43 46 Feb. 16 Park College there 38 32 Feb. 20 Olathe Air Station here 39 35 Sixty-Two You Tell ' Em, Coach! . . .

THE STUDENT SENATE The functioning of the Student Senate during war-time years has been in keeping with the change the war has brought to our campus. The majority of the members have been women, as is to be expected, and for the second time in the history of the College the President of the Student Body was a woman student, capable Vivian Wilson. The Senate has maintained the Bearcats ' Den for the pleasure of students during their " off hours " with Shirley Anderson, Berneice Goforth, and Betty Claire Wallace serving as hostesses during the year. In the East room of the Den a memorial to former students who have lost their lives in the war has been established, and a large Memorial Bulletin Board has been purchased for this room. During the year, in addition to the routine matters which the Senate has handled, a surprise " Walk Out Day " was held early in the school year. In December the Senate sponsored a very successful War Bond Drive among the Students and Faculty Members, and sold a total of over $20,000 in war bonds and stamps. Sixty-Eight VARSITY VILLAGERS ASSOCIATION The Varsity Villagers is a social organization for women students who live off the campus. When the Navy V-12 unit occupied the Women ' s Dormitory in the summer of 1943, all women students automatically became eligible for membership. Since some of the women have again moved into Residence Hall, their membership has dropped, but this is still the largeset woman ' s organization on the campus. Some of the activities and social events of the year were: a formal dance, a bowling party, and a spring picnic. During the Christmas season the members went carolling and had an in- formal party afterwards in the Bearcat ' s Den. They also contributed donations for a basket of food for a needy family of Maryville. The Association is sponsored by Miss Dorothy Truex, Director of Personnel for Women. The officers are: Kathleen Cook, President; Virginia McGinness, Vice President, in charge of Social Events; Helen Mundell, Secretary; Mary Moffitt, Treasurer. FIRST ROW: N. Luyster, H. Haller, K.

Sixty Nine DUR GREEK SOCIALITES SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA Tri-Sigma, as it is familiarly called on the campus, centered its activities this year around the sorority house, under the supervision of Mrs. William Bills. There were two rush seasons this year, one during the Fall quarter, and again in the Spring. Social activities included a Formal Dance, several informal parties, picnics, and a theatre-party. Members of this organization selected for Who ' s Who Among College Students were Mona Alexander, Mary Rose Gram, Bennie Lu Saunders, Martha Polsley, and Vivian Wilson.

MORE SOCIALITES ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA Phi Chapter of A.S.A. was Shangri-la bound for the beginning of another year, as the members and rushees started for China on their formal rush party. Highlights of the year were the Open House for Alpha Phi Omega, the Christ- mas and Sweetheart dances, theatre parties, picnics, and get-togethers at the house. During the 6th War Loan Drive, Alpha Sigma Alpha purchased $1,000 in war bonds, and added to Clean-Up Week with a " Work Day. " May Lou Rusk and Jodie Montgomery were selected as candidates for TOWER Queen. Jodie, also in Who ' s Who, was football queen, with two Alphas, Janet Drennan and Bernetta Cushman, as attendants. Under the leadership of Miss Lewis, sponsor, and Mrs. Moore, house- mother, the organization has had a very successful year. Seventy-One ORGANIZATIONS ALPHA PHI OMEGA FIRST ROW: G.

Alpha Phi Omega is a revival of the organization for former Boy Scouts, that became inactive because of war conditions. The membership is large and this has been one of the most active groups on our campus during the last year. Several initiation services were held during the year, and a formal Dinner-Dance was held at Christmas at the Country Club. During the Basket- ball season the organization provided programs for the students and townspeople who attended the games. In addition to this they have served as ushers, sponsored pep rallies, and in general have rendered many services to our campus. Seventy-Two SOCIAL ORGANIZATION FOR MEN STUDENTS PHI SIGMA EPSILON Nu Chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon is the only social fraternity active on the campus at the present time. Starting the year with a few civilian members and some sailors who had been here last year, the organization has carried on its customary activities. Social events such as smokers, informal dances, parties in the Bearcats ' Den, picnics and a formal Dinner-Dance have been the main activities for the year. The organization participated in the All-Greek Party during the spring quarter. President Harold Don Haynes was selected, the only civilian man to receive this honor, for Who ' s Who Among College Students. BOTTOM ROW: W. R. Brazeal, D. Foote, A. Green, J. Bell, J. Burton, R.

During the year the Committee has sponsored a number of All-College Dances, most of them informal in nature. One of the outstanding ones was the " Sock Dance " following a football game. " Leap Week " activities culminated in a " Sadie Hawkins Dance " on the day selected by the inhabitants of Dog-Patch. A Dancette was given in honor of the Football Queen, Jodie Mont- gomery, and her four attendants who were selected by members of the Football Sguad. The disbanding of the Navy Dance Band has curtailed dances to some extent during part of the Winter and Spring semesters, but several informal social events were sponsored and the Com- mittee assisted with the Annual Tower Dance.

BARKATZE In its thirteenth year the Barkatze is entirely a girls ' organiza- tion because of the war conditions. This group although lacking the male vocal power it used to have is none-the-less a very peppy organization that gives loyal support to the Bearcat team through- out the Football and Basketball seasons. Its members have pre- sented numerous stunts for the enjoyment of the public, such as the traditional tumbling and pyramid building, and a stunt honor- ing the United Nations, plus a joint-stunt with the Green and White Peppers. Also the members have sold food at the games during both sports seasons. Social events have included an initiation picnic, a chili supper, and a party at the end of the Basketball season given by the sponsors, Mr. Cook and Miss Carruth. Seventy -Eight YEA! GREEN YEA . WHITE GREEN AND WHITE PEPPERS The Green and White Peppers, a women ' s organization, was organized during the fall of 1927. The purpose of the club is to encourage the athletic teams, to promote good sportsmanship, and to contribute to the entertainment of the public at athletic events. Difficulties arose this year in getting new uniforms, but the Peppers were always present with plenty of vim, vigor and vital- ity to cheer the team to victory. They presented a rope-jumping stunt, a twirling stunt starring four Peppers, Myrna Harland, Janet Drennan, Virginia Shearer and Sue Philp, and cooperated with the Barkatze in presenting a joint-stunt. They also sold at the basket- ball games, and ran a check-room. FIRST ROW: M. E. Tebow, P. Bosch, M. Busby, L. Johnson, T. Shively, M. Bruce, J. Montgomery, S. Anderson, M. Arnold, V. Rogers, J.

During regular meetings, matters of personality development were discussed. Also there have been social functions for new members, and a chili supper at the home of the Sponsor, Miss Mary Keith. TEACHERS DF THE FUTURE FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA This is a nationwide organization fostered by the National Education Association. The John Dewey Chapter, was founded on our campus during the school year of 1942-43.

DUR NEWS HAWKS NORTHWEST MISSDURIAN STAFF Again this year the staff of the Northwest Missourian has been largely feminine in make-up, but their coverage of school happenings has been more than adequate. The beginning of the year great difficulty was encountered in finding a pub- lisher for the paper, but one was finally found and the Missourian appeared in a pint-sized " War-Time Edition. " This paper is sent to members of the Armed Services who were former students. Items of interest appear in the Armed Services Column. For the past two years the dates of publication have been twice monthly instead of weekly, because of the paper and manpower shortage. Eighty-Six TDWER STAFF SEATED: B. Stroeber, C. Law, M.

The staff for the 1945 TOWER struggled through scarcities, priorities, and substitutions to offer this year ' s edition of the College annual to the faculty and student body for whom it was published. The staff lost its sports writers to the armed forces and film to higher priori- ties, but it never lost sight of the goal erected by previous editions and the determination that " Discontinued for the duration " should not be inscribed on the TOWER. In spite of the headaches, and discouragements there is satis- faction for members of the staff who now can realize the accomplishment of a difficult task in the publication of another STC year-book. Miss Dorothy Truex guided the work on the TOWER as its advisor, and our engraver and printer were most co-operative and congenial. The staff admits it has not made history with this year ' s publication, but rather it has recorded it. Eighty-Seven TR UCKS f US£ 9 T J STREET Cook, Schopfer and Hower Framed . . .
