Page A CONTENTS FEATURES FACULTY CLASSES ATHLETICS ORGANIZATIONS Page 5 -Library — Residence Hall Horace Mann School 4 Pagee TOWER DANCE ATTENDANTS: Dorothy June Masters and Margaret Fisher The suspense mounted as the spotlights flashed on and the trumpets sounded a royal fanfare. The tension was broken by cheers and applause as the 1947 Tower Queen, Mary Garrett, assisted by Leon Dreps, rolled back the sides of the medieval tower revealing the 1948 Tower Queen, Helen Louise Fisher, seated upon her throne. Queen Helen was surrounded by her four gracious attendants, Dorothy June Masters, Julia Sheumaker, Joan Miller, and Margaret Fisher. The coronation ceremony followed with John Parham, Tower Editor placing the sparkling crown, which was carried by petite Jean Joan Zirbel, upon Queen Helen ' s head giving her free reign over the events of the evening. Jack Summers, Tower Business Manager, presented the queen with a beau- tiful arm bouquet of roses. After the ceremony. Queen Helen, her at- tendants, the 1947 queen and their escorts danced to the queen ' s waltz as the audience looked on. A short program followed with Rex Moyer as master-of-ceremonies. Ruth McDowell played " Czarda " on her violin and Margaret Bowness sang " Ballerina " . After the pro- gram everyone retired to the lounge for refreshments which were served by Rachael Robinson and Mrs. Anna Parham, assisted by Ruth Wyatt. A medieval theme was carried out. A large backdrop behind the orchestra depicted a fairytale castle upon a hill. The queen ' s tower and throne were medieval, as were the old family crests which decorated the walls. A large fountain with a cascade of pastel lights decorated one corner of the floor. The lounge was made comfortable by many chairs and tables where those who grew weary rested, exchanged witticisms and played cards. The serving table in the lounge was beautifully decorated with a glittering rep- resentation of a medieval castle as a center- piece. It was agreed that the 1948 TOWER DANCE WAS AS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL AS ANY of the year ' s formal events. ATTENDANTS: Julia Sheumaker and Joan Miller Pages i i - ■■■■■. ■t--- r. ' 9.x m:iiima,y. MISS HELEN FISHER Queen of the 1948 Tower Page 9 MISS MARGARET CURRY, HOMECOMING QUEEN Attendants: Dolores Keown, Maxine McDermott, Kathryn Espey, Sue Philp Page 12 md iMk ' -- A HOMECOMING Airplanes droned overhead, bands blasted the air waves, and portraits of certain college misses graced the halls and adorned ink blot- ters. What did all of this mean? It was the campaign for Homecoming Queen. The big weekeod of October 31 was begun by the building of a huge bonfire which started the pep rally. The scene shifted to the college auditorium where the Variety Show consisting of skits prepared by different campus organizations was held. First place went to the Tri Sig-Phi Sig Band; second place went to the Alpha Sigma " Minstrel Show " , and third place was won by the A.C.E. with their " Ten Little Indians. " No Home- coming activity overshadowed the unveiling of the Bearcat presented by the Art Depart- ment. A burst of applause came from the packed auditorium as the curtain slowly opened to reveal Queen Margaret Curry and her four attendants, Sue Philp, Dolores Keown, Kath- ryn Espey and Maxine McDermott. The prize w inning float of the Homecom- Page 13 Rfe mt. HOMECOMING ing Parade was sponsored by the A.C.E. Second prize went to the float decorated by Kappa Omicron Phi Fraternity. Third prize went to the Ag Club for their novel, " This is no bull " float. In the afternoon the Bearcat team fought the Indians on a soggy field, the result; a disappointing scoreless tie. As the climax of a most wonderful week- end, happy, radiant gals and glowing, if fatigued, men danced in the beautifully dec- orated gym to the music of Warren Durrett and his orchestra. The general committee responsible for the success of Homecoming was composed of Dr. John Harr, chairman; Mrs. Ramona Canton, Mr. Sterling Surrey, and Miss Jean Bush. CHRISTMAS ! t )1 The traditional yuletide, " Hanging of the Greens " was held at Residence Hall Sunday afternoon, December 14. The members of the Dance Club portrayed by words and dance the merriment of the people of long ago as they decorated their homes for the Christmas season. The Spirit of Christmas, Marilyn Partridge kindled the yule log and the Queen of Misrule, Dolores Keown hung the mistletoe in the center of the room. Following the ceremony the girls of Resi- dence Hall held Open House for their par- ents and friends. Page 16 FESTIVITIES Midst the rays of soft lights and the strains of familiar music, the annual Christmas Ball was held the evening of December 13, in the college gymnasium. Upon entering the ballroom through an arched doorway, guests found themselves in a blue and silver fairyland of Christmas scenes centered by a brilliantly Christmas tree. The music was furnished by Bradley Moore and his band. Dean Steeby was the featured vocalist. Refreshments were served from a table which was decorated with a laughing snow- man.

The freshman class was put through the traditional humiliation and humorous initia- tion by upper classmen. An all school picnic was held in College Park after initiation. In the evening an all school dance honored the freshman class. CANDID SHOTS . Canyi ig the Torch for Curry. 2. Wha lti Ball, . Sho guii Wedding. 4. Smile Pretty. 5. The Oltiimua Bombshell. 6.

JONES President of the College Page 24 A MESSAGE FIIOM niE PRESIDENT Tlic Towers, the Bearcat, the c|iiotation carved above the entrance to the Administra- tion Building — these are symbolic of the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College. The Towers and Bearcat belong exclusively to your college. They are a part of your college life — they will live in your memory as symbols reminiscent of your years in col- lege. " And the truth shall make you free " applies to all mankind but you will always think of it whenever you see or hear it as being your quotation. It is good to have tangible things, to recall to mind this record of the year 1947-1948. The Tower Staff is to be congratulated on this excellent book, but it would not have had these events to record were it not for the student body of the college. Live again, then, as you turn these pages of your 1948 Tower, those exciting events which have made this a year of student accomplishment. In the shadow of the Towers you have lived a full year, a year that has helped you as educated people to grow into better citi- zens. " And the truth shall make you free. " The 1948 Tower is your record of the year of 1947-1948 at your college. President The President ' s Residence Page 25 Left to right, Mr. W. A. Rickenbrode, Seiritary to Board of Regeii s; Mr. H. V.

BOARD OF REGENTS Behind the planning for better educational efficiency in any college must be a certain group who through their conscious efforts, willing cooperation, and reliable advice determine the best possible means of man- agement for progressive education. Such are the duties of the Board of Regents. The Board of Regents of this College is composed of seven members. They are ap- pointed by the governor. They work with President Jones and decide the most effi- cient course of action. DEAN OF FACULTY Dr. M. C. Cunningham became Dean of the Faculty in 1945. He had previously been head of the Education Department of the College. Dean Cunningham received his Bachelor of Arts Degree at Westminster Col- lege in Fulton, Missouri, Master of Arts and Doctor of Education Degrees at the Uni- versity of Missouri. He also spent some time as director of finance in the State Depart- ment of Education before coming to the College. Dean Cunningham handles the affairs and problems of students and faculty with a degree of efficiency and fairness unsurpassed on the campus. The warm smile, the friendly greeting, and the interest displayed toward every one have endeared the Dean to all those attending the college. Page 26 Mrs. Harrv Shri-t , l)i iH of II omtii. Mr I.on ilxm. Oeati of Mill Ui DEAN OF WOMEN Mrs. Shcctz, during her first year as acting Dean of Women has become well known and appreciated. She has the responsibility of personal counseling, scheduling student labor, arranging the social and sports cal- endar and supervising housing programs. DEAN OF MEN The Dean of Men, Mr. Lon Wilson is in charge of personal counseling, housing, and student work program on the campus. His duties as Dean of Men are combined with his work as Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds. PRESIDENT EMERITUS UEL W. LAMKIN It takes something besides Books and Buildings to make a college. The Tower tells the story of that something else — people and their doings during this past year. There really is no substitute for scholar- ship. Just as truly nothing can take the place of your personal relations with other stu- dents. In the years to come you will get satisfac- tion and joy from what you learned from Books in Buildings. But your closest ties will be with your college friends, those whom you meet every day, and with whom you associ- ate in the classroom, campus, and community. You are a fine lot — the best generation we have yet known, " God Bless You Every One. " Uel W. Lamkin. Page 27 IN MEMORIAM Mr. T. H. Cook is gone. No longer will his physical presence lend dignity and esteem on occasion. No longer will his kindly voice greet and teach those who come through the doors of Northwest Missouri State Teachers College. No longer will the twinkle in his eye win the confidence of the timid one. Yes, Mr. Cook has gone, but a man of his caliber never dies. For forty some years he lived in Maryville and taught in our college. A quiet and unassuming man, with the ideals which he possessed, cannot contact hundreds of young men and women, yes, even mature students, for that length of time and not leave an indelible imprint. No greater tribute could be given him than, for those who knew him, to resolve that his years shall not have been lived in vain but that life for them shall have a new meaning, and thus he " shall not perish from the earth. " Irene Lowry Wright, Class of 1925 President, Alumni Association Dr. F. R. Anthony, formerly of the College Health Department, died after a long illness just as the Tower was going to press. Thou- sands of alumni who knew him and appre- ciated his efficient service will remember him for his many kind deeds. Page 28 FACULIY EDUCATION Clifford I.. Bishop.

The executi e powers of the Student Sen- ate are vested in a president and a vice-presi- dent who are elected by ote of the entire student body; and a secretary-treasurer and a parliamentarian, each of whom is selected by vote of other members of Senate. The legislative and judicial po ers are held by the president and ice-president and four members of each class except the freshman which has two representatives. Actions taken by the Senate this year have served to correlate and further co-operation among organizations on the campus. Out- standing e idences of this were shown in its help with Walkout Day, Homecoming, and conduction of student polls throughout the year. During the year, the senate has had control of the Bearcat Den and the Student Lounge. It made recommendations for improvement in both and carried out part of its recom- mendations literally by painting the Bearcat Den.

The Council sponsored the first social event of the year, the fall rush tea and to- gether with the Inter-Fraternity Council planned the Spring All Greek Dance. The Council completed plans to present a scholarship cup to the sorority maintaining the highest scholastic average during the year.

MUSIC DEPARTMENT Music organizations are maintained on the campus to provide students with the oppor- tunity to express themselves musically and to learn the theory of conducting ensemble groups of all types. The Tower Choir is composed of college students who desire to express themselves vocally in the part singing. The choir sings for assemblies and special occasions at the college. This year the choir presented a Christmas cantata and an opera. The College Band is composed of those people whose musical ability allows them to qualify. The band plays for the athletic events and all college functions. Each year it gives concerts at the college and also goes on concert tours. The College Orchestra is composed of the string ensemble and members of the concert band.

' With the arrival of Mr. Paxton Price as librarian, changes began taking place in ar- rangements, in efficiency, and in attractive- ness. A reading lounge and a film and record library are being planned for the near future. A new service makes available, by loan, to students and faculty reproductions of fine paintings. Page hi THE LABORATORY SCHOOL The Horace Mann Laboratory School has a three-fold function to perform. First, it must furnish the best possible educational experience for student teachers; second, it must provide exceptional opportunity for the growth and development of the boys and girls who make up the student body; third, as an integral and vital part of a college dedi- cated to the education of teachers, it is obli- gated to exemplify the mpst modern and efficient methods of teaching and learning. It is the purpose of the Horace Mann Lab- oratory School to provide the best education possible for its students — from the nursery school through high school. Students, teach- ers, and the college administration try to the best of their ability to make the laboratory school a good example to prospective teachers as well as to the teachers and admin- istrators served by the College. The student teacher phase is important. It is the belief of many that a teachers college should revolve around its laboratory school. To justify such a plan, those in charge of the Horace Mann Laboratory School have set forth the princi- ples of observation, participation and grad- ual induction into student teaching — all this under the guidance of well qualified sympa- thetic supervising teachers.

FOOTBALL SEASON IN REVIEW MARYVILLE 14— OTTAWA An eager and hustling band of Bearcats ushered in the 1947 football season with a victory over Ottawa University. Ottawa later was conference champion in their league, and though they sent a veteran team on the field the hard-hitting " Cats " took a 14-0 decision. Klang and Totoraitis led the line play. Wormsley and Zuchowski scored the touchdowns and Kurtright converted twice from placement. MARYVILLE 26— OMAHA Scoring the first time they got the ball and rolling on for two touchdowns in each of the first and third periods, the big Green and White romped over Omaha 26-0. Gates scored two touchdowns, Zuchowski one, and Totoraitis one. Kurtright converted twice. The solid defense did not permit Omaha to get within the Maryville 25-yard line. MARYVILLE 7— SPRINGFIELD 7 Coach Milner sent his men agai nst the un- defeated and powerful Springfield Bears. An inspired eleven fought the favored Bears to a standstill. Maryville scored first on Weed ' s plunge to culminate a 67-yard march. Freeman converted to send the " Cats " in front 7-0. Only a desperate touchdown pass in the final half saved the Bears. John- son and Totoraitis played the finest ball of their careers to help stem the hard running of Springfield backs.

Adams Geist Zuchowski Weidmaier Wren BEARCATS ' 47 MARYVILLE 7— WILLIAM JEWELL A sea of mud and a hard rain greeted the Bearcats in their first game away from home. They scored midway through the fourth period on an end run by James to protect their undefeated, untied, unscored on rec- ord. The brilliant line threw Jewell back without a first down. Sensational line plung- ing by fullbacks Weed and Butherus kept the ball in enemy territory most of the game. MARYVILLE 6— ROLLA 12 The Bearcats could not cope with the daring passing attack of the Miners and fell in defeat in their first conference test. Zuch- owski scored for Maryville in the first quar- ter but Rolla came back to tie the game and to win in the final period. Again the fierce line play of the Bearcats stood out, even in defeat, as Johnson, Totoraitis, Hartness, Klang, and Weidmaier led the defense. MARYVILLE 0— ROCKHURST 14 A Rockhurst Homecoming background furnished the impetus for an under-rated Rockhurst eleven to force a 14-0 victory over the Bearcats. The Hawks scored on the next to last play of the first half and on the last play of the game. MARYVILLE 0— CAPE GIRARDEAU During the Homecoming the Bearcat ' s of- fense sputtered for the fourth successive time. They were held to a scoreless tie before a shivering, rain spattered, but enthusiastic crowd. The only bright spot of the game was the play of the stalwart front line. Johnson Boeh Slack Ward James Totoraitis ■ ' ounger Baker Gamble Klang Jones BEARCATS ' 47 MARYVILLE 22— KIRKSVILLE 6 The Bearcats, finding their offensive powers, blasted out a convincing victory to ruin a Kirksville Homecoming. James scored on a 42-yard run and Weed scored on a plunge in the second quarter. In the final half Butherus took a pass for a score and a safety was made. Gates passed for one score and set up the second score with an aerial pass. Freeman converted twice. MARYVILLE 15— WARRENSBURG The Green and White closed a successful season with a decisive 15-0 victory over the surprisingly tough Mules. A safety, a touch- down by Glavin on a kick blocked by Weid- maier, and a thirteen yard plunge by Weed with Freeman ' s conversion composed the scoring. Totoraitis and Johnson were honored by being named on the All Conference First Team and were members with Weidmaier and Gates on the Missouri Senior All-Star Team that defeated the Kansas Senior Team in the Mo-Kan Bowl Game in Kansas City. All four men distinguished themselves in the game.

BARKATZE The booster organization composed of both boys and girls is known on the campus as the Barkatze. They back the team at all football and basketball games on campus and take as many trips as possible to out-of- town games. The uniform of the Barkatze consists of green jackets, white shirts, and green ties worn with white skirts or trousers. This year the Barkatze enjoyed their annual chili supper after which they held an initiation consisting of stunts performed by the new members. One of the two stunts presented this year was a square dance. The other was a mock wedding. The Barkatze are enhanced by their mas- cot, Miss Shirley Dieterich who dresses in full uniform and sits with the group. The Barkatze are sponsored by Miss Wincie Ann Carruth of the Physical Educa- tion Department. Miss Carruth has been sponsor of the group for many years and is as integral a part of the organization as the uniforms themselves. Mr. Surrey is co-spon- sor of the Barkatze.

GREEN AND WHITE PEPPERS This pep organization came into existence in the fall of 1927, and has come up through the years, serving as a supporter of athletic teams and good sportsmanship, and contrib- uting to the entertainment of the public at athletic events. In the fall of 1947, 14 girls were initiated into the Peppers, bringing the membership to 40, and the initiates wore the green and white uniforms in true Pepper fashion. The Peppers attended one out of town game this year. In November they went to the football game at William Jewell. Al- though a constant downpour of rain was dampening to their spirits, the Peppers cheered their team on to victory. The Peppers presented three stunts this year for the enjoyment of sports fans. At the Homecoming Game they presented a snappy drill. During the half of the Kirksville Game in January they presented a rope skipping stunt. Also, at the Warrensburg Game they presented their basketball version of " Casey at the Bat, " entitled " Maryville at the Basket. " During the Homecoming Festivities, the Peppers gave a chili supper honoring their grads who had come back to join in the cele- brations at their old alma mater. Page 65 " - IS " m ' - ■ i 21 % BASKETBALL 1947-48 ' s edition of the basketball Bear- cats did not do as well as was hoped, but as the season drew to a close students and fans began to realize that the freshman loaded squad was possessed with potential stars of the hardwood. Newcomers to the squad, John Wohlford, Eugene Ceglenski, James Tanner, Kenneth Jones, Donald Reynolds and Charles Godwin contributed their hustle and ability to that of the returning lettermen. Especially noteworthy was the work of fresh- men Jones and Tannar, who were in all the games either as starters or substitutes for long periods of play. From this group Coach Ryland Milner will form his next season ' s quintet. Veterans Lloyd Younger and Don- ald Scott added the scoring punch. George Andrews, Howard Glavin, and Paul Buth- erus gave their familiarity of the system to aid the freshmen. Much credit for the aid given to the new- comers on the squad goes to seniors Andrews and Glavin, whose experience under Coach Milner helped him develop the freshmen in the understanding of his type of play. These men will not be present to witness the re- Page 66 suits of their help next season, hut the effect of their aid will be reflected in the play of the team. At the opening of the campaign lettcrmcn Andrews, Sctut, Glavin, Butherus, and Younger reported for practice. The latter three came over from the football sc|uad. They joined other members of the scjuad who were to compose the traveling group for the Bearcats. The seven others who made all the trips and who participated in a major- ity of the games were Wohlford, Tanner, Godwin, Jones, Reynolds, Wormsley, and Ceglenski. The above seven received letter awards in addition to those presented to the afore mentioned lettcrmcn.

" Lefty " Davis and Coach Ryland Milner, who both worked with the thinciads this year, rounded the " Cats " into shape. Alvin Wormsley was the big gun in point getting this year with the shot and discus. Paul Waters was also one of the best point makers on the thinclad team. His great runs in the 440 and 880 thrilled many Bearcat followers as he won several times on sheer determination and a will to win. Other strong point getters on the team were Warren Home, John Daly, Richard Appleman, Bruce Peters, Paul Gates, Mark Christine, and Robert Weston. Page 70 WOIMEN ' S PHYSICAL EDUCATION The various activities of the Women ' s Physical Education Department provide re- lief and relaxation from the mental strain of college life. The aim of the Women ' s Physical Educa- tion Department 4s to pro ide an interesting and beneficial program of physical motiva- tion for each girl. This department offers a broad recreation program for women including the inter- collegiate and recreational activities of the WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION and DANCE CLUB. By participation in the activities of the department, all girls acquire a certain degree of skill and understanding of several fine American sports. All students are required to complete at least six quarters of activities for graduation. Page 71 Wii JJiJJ.

INTRAMURALS The fall quarter this year marked the sec- ond year of play nights and intramural pro- gram sponsored by the Recreation Depart- ment. After a slow start last year, the depart- ment shifted into high gear and this year ' s program was bigger and better than ever before. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons various games such as volley ball, swimming, ping pong, badmin- ton, shuffle board, and dancing were enjoyed by interested students. The attendance this year was greatly improved over that of last year. The intramural basketball program was INTRAMURAL COMMISSION Harold Johnson, George MacLellan, Mr. Herbert Peterson, Sponsor; Basil Hoehn, Chairman; Larry Zirbel, Donald Hoffman. Page 72 INTRAMURALS enlarged to twenty-one teams playing in three leagues. Each league played a double round robin with a double elimination for championship. The Phi Sigs were the only team to go through the league undefeated, and entered the tournament as heavy favorites. However, the All States, led by high scoring Jack Milli- gan and Rjean Black upset all others and went on to win the tournament. An all star team was being chosen as The Tower went to press. A mixed volleyball tournament also was organized. The teams consisted of three boys and three girls. The new twist brought some of the fairer sex into the athletic limelight. Several tournaments displaying real sports- manship were played in badminton, Softball, golf and archery. Page 73 TOP PICTURE Top Row: Byron Baker, Roger Wren.

This club was founded with the intention of promoting better athletics, building tra- dition, prestige, and loyalty around those athletics. During the past year, the club has pro- duced all of the football, basketball and track programs, handled the traditional walkout day, and assisted the Junior Cham- ber of Commerce in police duty on Santa Claus Day.

SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA The Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma, affiliated with the National Pan-Hellenic Council, has been active on this campus since 1927. The aims of the sorority are to build character, to develop leadership, to promote unselfish cooperation, and to establish among the members a perpetual bond of friendship. Homecoming kept the Tri Sigmas busy. The weekend included the Variety Show in which the Tri Sig-Phi Sig Band won first place, a breakfast honoring the alumnae, and a tea at the chapter house. A sorority sister, Margaret Curry was chosen queen to reign over Homecoming activities. A rush party " Southern Charm, " a " Sheet Dance, " party given by the pledges, the tra- ditional Christmas party, and the senior breakfast were included in the social whirl. The Founder ' s Day Banquet was celebrated April 20 with a formal dinner at which mothers were special guests. The last social event of the year was the Spring Formal at the Country Club. Two members, Mary Garrett, president, and a senior sister, Clara Judson attended the National Convention in July at Williams- burg, Virginia. Sigma Sigma Sigma serves others through its social service fund which is given to worthy causes. Character is developed through the Charm School and Harmony Hour which provide opportunities for the girls to discuss prob- lems met each day and to strengthen the bonds of sisterhood. Much credit for the success of the Chapter belongs to the Tri Sig sponsor Dr. June Cozine. Page 77 ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA Top Row: Betly Lawrence, Mary Lou Laughlin.

ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA Phi Phi chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha, now a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, has been active on this campus since 1928. The aim of the sorority is to establish a sisterhood that will develop its members intellectually, socially and spiritually. Alpha Sigma Alpha feels that only through participation can members acquire experi- ences needed for the development of capable leadership. The local chapter is therefore grateful for the increased opportunity for growth and development offered by the numerous professional, service and social organizations found on the campus, and encourages participation in at least two col- lege activities. Aiming toward a well balanced combina- tion of leadership traits, the sorority feels that service is the keynote of strength and growth and has always sponsored at least one social service project each year. This year the " Alpha Sigs " sponsored a clothing drive, called the " Marshall Plan Junior. ' Alpha Sigma Alpha encourages high scho- lastic accomplishments and is in competition with the two other campus sororities for the Scholarship Cup which is to be awarded to the one with the highest scholastic average. It is necessary to win the cup three times to retain it permanently. In addition to the variety of service activi- ties. Alpha Sigma Alpha provided an enter- taining social calendar introduced by an in- formal " Dude Ranch " rush party. The Alpha Sig prize-winning Minstrel Show at the Homecoming Varieties, Founder ' s Day Ban- quet, and the Alpha Sig ' s traditional Sweet- heart Dance have been highlights.

" Chinatown " was the theme of a progres- sive dinner rush party with Mrs. R. T. Wright and Mrs. Sterling Surrey as hostesses. Little Paula Surrey was chosen mascot. Twelve girls were rushed and each of the twelve accepted her bid. A Christmas bazaar, a tea for the faculty women, and a Christmas party were on the Delta Sigs ' December calendar. Joyce Heck, President, attended the province meeting at Conway, Arkansas, bringing back ideas and contributions from other chapters in this area. A " Snow Festival " of dancing and fun in a setting of winter scenery was the Sorority ' s January party. The annual spring formal was held in April and an installation of officers was held in May. Social Services by the Delta Sigs were con- tributions to the tuberculosis and infantile paralysis funds.

ALPHA PHI OMEGA The Beta Upsilon Chapter of the Alpha Fhi Omega was reorganized on the campus during the fall quarter of 1946 with the able assistance of Mr. Sidney B. North, National Secretary of the Fraternity. During the first , year the fraternity has increased three fold. Being a service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega crosses all lines of honorary, social, and professional fraternities and members of other campus organization. The purposes of Alpha Phi Omega are " to assemble college men in the fellowship of the Scout Oath and Law, to develop friendship and service to humanity. " The year ' s activities began with an annual Fall Smoker which attracted prospective members. The goals set forth by Mr. John Taylor, faculty advisor, of the Social Science Department, at that meeting have been ac- complished. During the past year the Beta Upsilon Chapter participated as ushers in the annual Northwest Missouri Teachers Convention and at weekly assemblies, served as guides during Senior Day, helped the city police force in maintaining order during the Home- coming Parade, operated a check room at Christmas Ball, acted as assistant scout- masters, served on Courts of Honor, aided in the collection for March of Dimes, and par- ticipated in a Homecoming skit. The social activities held were; a banquet in honor of new pledges and new members, a dance at Country Club, a smoker for new pledges in January, and the first Formal Spring Dance.

The Nu Chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon again experienced its most successful year. As a result of the Fall Quarter Smoker held at the Tivoli Theater Lounge, twenty pledges were taken into the brotherhood making an active membership of forty-one. During the fall quarter a pledge dance was enjoyed at the Country Club with Bradley Moore ' s Orchestra furnishing the music. Three Phi Sig members were honored by appearing in the 1948 Who ' s Who. These were Gaylord Coleman, John Garrett, and Theodore Mueller. Again we found the fraternity participat- ing in the intramural tournaments. Three teams were provided for the basketball tour- nament. The Phi Sigs teamed with the Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority to contribute three teams to the co-educational volleyball tourna- ment. Speaking of teaming up with our sister sorority — no one will surely forget the Phi Sig-Tri Sig Swing Band that won first place in the Homecoming Variety Show. Honorary Members of the Fraternity are Mr. Taylor, Mr. Kensinger, Mr. Neece, Dr. Persons, Mr. Skaith, and Mr. Surrey. Our sponsors are Mr. W. T. Garrett and Mr. H. R. Dieterich. The informal dances, smokers and the annual All-Greek Formal Dance will long be remembered. But, as usual, the most awaited social event of the year was the Phi Sig Annual Spring Formal.

SIGMA TAU GAMMA Sigma Tau Gamma, better known as " Sig Taus " is the oldest national social fraterity in the United States. It is a member of the association of Teachers College Fraternities. This fraternity was founded at Warrensburg, Missouri in 1920 with Theta Chapter being installed on this campus April 2, 1927. The purpose of the " Taus " is to promote lasting fellowship, to train for leadership, to enrich social orientation and adjustment, to stimulate more extensive participation in extra-curricular school activities, to empha- size social democracy. At the beginning of the fall quarter thirty- seven enthusiastic, cooperative members were eager for a successful year. At pledgeship there were twenty-eight new members initi- ated making the chapter the largest in the history of Theta Chapter. During the summer the alumni and actives had cooperated in a drive to establish a hous- ing fund to provide a permanent home for the " Taus. " A well rounded social life was exercised this year with numerous picnics and informal parties and two smokers. Many grads were welcomed to the alumni dinner during Homecoming. The " Tau " calendar also in- cluded the All Greek Dance. The gala event of the year was the Sigma Tau Gamma Spring Formal at the Country Club April 24. The social program of Sigma Tau Gamma is an important complement to the formal education of the classroom assisting in mak- ing the institution more attractive and vital to men students. Page 87 KAPPA OMICRON PHI Kappa Omicron Phi is a professional Home Economics Fraternity for girls with high scholastic ratings and high ideals. The Alpha chapter of Kappa Omicron Phi was organized on this campus with Miss Het- tie M. Anthony as founder, in 1922, thus giving Northwest Missouri State Teachers College the distinction of being the first chapter of this national organization. Three of the founders; Miss Hettie M. Anthony, Miss Mabel Cook, Miss Anna Houston, and alumnae members were present at the Founders Day Banquet in December cele- brating the twenty-fifth anniversary. The Kappa Omicron Phi float in the Homecoming Parade won second prize. Membership includes eleven active mem- bers and five pledges who are Willa Brecken- ridge, Sergia Fries, Thelma Palma, Dorothy June Masters and Virginia Ann George. Top Row: Phyllis Combs.

The purpose of this honor- ary fraternity is to promote training of its members in dramatics, acting, directing, cast- ing, make-up, stage managing, and stage con- struction as extra curricular activities. Mem- bership in the fraternity is the ultimate goal of members of the Dramatics Club. Charter members of the fraternity were Mary Clarke, President; George MacLellan, Vice-President; Sammy Carpenter, Secretary; Betty Hudson, Jean Bush, Richard Thomas, Joseph Roach, William Elam, Ann Fay, Zea Grissinger, and Verlin Tompkins.

Social functions took the form of parties, banquets, a dance, and a field trip. On the instructional side, the chapter showed films and had discussions related to the teaching of business subjects.

Kappa Delta Pi is a national Honor Society in Education which compares favorably with Phi Beta Kappa in liberal arts colleges. Its purpose is to encourage high professional, intellectual, and personal standards, and to recognize students who have made outstand- ing records. To this end it invites to member- ship such persons as exhibit commendable personal qualities, worthy educational ideals, and sound scholarship. Such persons must be at least of Junior standing, rank among the upper quartile of the student body in schol- arship, and be preparing for the teaching profession. It is with great pride that the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College presents these students as the charter members of this new campus-wide, national honor society. Only colleges and universities with accred- ited scholarship and professional standards can have their applications for the installa- tion of such a society approved. Much prep- aration and work by many faculty members has made this possible. The formal installa- tion ceremonies were held April 27.

It was organized in the spring of 1945 and became officially recognized by the United Christian Council on May 22, 1946. Religious Emphasis Week was one of the main campus activities entered into by the Association. Members of the Association par- ticipated in the Week by presiding at daily assemblies and by being youth leaders in seminars. The goal of the Student Christian Asso- ciation is one that belongs to followers of Christ over the world, to bring his kingdom to earth. It is seeking to prove that Jesus Christ is Lord in education as well as poli- tics, economics, social welfare and religion.

As President Jones once said upon intro- ducing the foreign students to a meeting, " They give us, with the information that they bring about their countries, much more than we give them. They contribute tow ard a bet- ter understanding between the Americans and a great number of other countries of the world. " In the summer quarter of 1947 a constitu- tion for a new Foreign Students Club was formulated. After a period of expectation the creation of the club was approved. Dr. Blanche H. Dow was chosen sponsor. There are nine nationalities represented on the campus. Europe, Asia, and South America have sent their young people to share the light of knowledge with their American friends. Page 98 CO-OPERATIVE INDEPENDENT CLUB The Co-operative Independent Club, an organization for college students who are not affiliated with a social sorority nor a social fraternity, was reorganized on the campus in the fall of 1946 after an absence of four years. The club has been successful in attaining many objectives during the past year. Among other things, much activity was devoted to the promotion of student leadership and school spirit among its own members and those who are not members of social organiz- ations and to the development of well- rounded students through wholesome recrea- tion and social activities. During the Homecoming Festivities the club members made and sponsored a float, presenting the Maryville Bearcats eating a Cape Girardeau Indian pie. Social life consisted of a gala Christmas party, informal dances, square dances, card parties, general parties, skit programs, a formal dinner and a trip to Kansas City.

The Association for Childhood Education is a student branch of a great international organization. The organization has as its chief interest the guidance of young children of nursery, kindergarten, primary and inter- mediate grade school levels. Soon after the chapter was reorganized for the year A.C.E. took top honors for a float in the Homecoming Parade. The chap- ter was also awarded third prize for a skit in the Variety Show. However, the highest honor of Homecoming week came when Miss Margaret Curry, an active member, was crowned queen of the festival. During the fall and winter months, cloth- ing and school materials were packed and sent to a group of needy children in Belgium. The Maryville Chapter was honored when Miss Rachel Robinson was chosen as the only student on the board to plan the National Convention. Miss Millikan and several mem- bers journeyed to St. Louis to the conven- tion the week of April 19.

The International Relations Club is not an exclusive social organization but is com- posed of a group of students who are inter- ested in world affairs, international rela- tions and economic and political problems. They are students who are serious thinkers and who realize that national and interna- tional well being is as much their responsi- bility as it is the responsibility of those who execute governmental policy. The programs for the bi-monthly meet- ings are based upon discussion of world af- fairs. In these discussions the members do not attempt to solve the problems of today but to exchange information pertaining to the relations and affairs which constitute the problems. These programs are planned and participated in by students. The International Relations Club is as- sisted by the Carnegie Foundation which distributes news bulletins, International Con- ciliation Bulletins and suggestions for pro- grams and discussion.

This organization is open to any college woman not residing in Residence Hall. Its purposes are to give town women an oppor- tunity for student government, to create a spirit of fellowship among the girls living in town, to promote high ideals and stand- ards of living, to create a cultural and social atmosphere and to develop leadership among college women. The governing body is the Varsity Villager Council, which is composed of the associa- tion ' s officers, a representative of each or- ganized house and proportional representa- tion of the students living in unorganized houses. Varsity Villagers sponsored an all school " Get Acquainted Party " the night of regis- tration for the fall quarter. Entertainment in- cluded mixers, dancing and eating. In February a reception was given in the Bearcat Den in honor of the housemothers. A Valentine theme was used. Page 99 DRAMATICS CLUB The Dramatics Club, under the sponsor- ship of Mr. Robert Gee, met early in Sep- tember, elected officers and set up the plans of the year. A new constitution was drafted with a point system for membership as the featured change. A student must earn 70 points in stage and crew work to become an active member in the Dramatics Club. The two main productions, directed by Mr. Gee, were the well known " JBlithe Spirit " by Noel Coward, and " The Playboy of The Western World " by J. M. Synge. These and many one act plays served to uphold the two purposes of the club which are to promote student activity in dramatics and to increase appreciation of the theatre and its arts. An " on stage party " was given early in January. Skits and story telling made up the evening ' s entertainment.

It was organized on October 28, 1947 with Mr. F. B. Houghton serving as sponsor. Those charter members who were selected to lead the club in its first year were William A. Bowness, presi- dent; Paul Clark, secretary; William Burns, vice-president; Maurice Merrigan, treasurer; William Coons, parliamentarian; and David Arthur, reporter. Soon after the club was organized, the members began work on a float for the Homecoming Parade. Although this was the club ' s first attempt for recognition it was awarded third prize. In the spring quarter the club sponsored a Livestock Judging Contest. The awards were given at the banquet which the mem- bers and their guests attended. The Ag Club is proud of its achievements and is looking forward to next year ' s ac- tivities.

The Women ' s Athletic Association was organized in 1925 on the campus for the purpose of promoting a spirit of loyalty among girls, to encourage participation in healthful recreation, and to interest high school graduates in college. Major activities of the club were the soft- ball season, managed by Meredee Myers, the basketball tournament, managed by Beverly Osburn, and the annual spring playday under the direction of Dorothy Harshaw. Page 103 NORTHWEST MISSOURIAN The Northwest Missouri Staff came to the campus with varied ideas and intentions but have all had a vital interest in the pub- lication of the official newspaper of the Northwest Missouri State Teachers College. Besides the regular staff, which has been composed mainly of English and pre-journal- ism majors, students in Newswriting and Northwest Missourian Staff classes have contributed regularly to the success of the paper. Staff members have been impressed with the necessity of meeting deadlines in order that the paper might come out on time. The Maryville Daily Forum prints the paper which is received by the students, alumni, and other subscribers every two weeks. Top Row: Roger Wren, Bruce Peters, Robert Mann, Jewell Rice, James Waller.

This year the Tower Staff has attempted to produce a book which portrays the life of the student on this campus and at the same time weave into the book a theme which emphasizes the cultural phase of the College. They feel sure that in future years the former students will wish to recall with pleasure those art reproductions belonging to the College. The Staff wishes to express appreciation to Miss Alta B. Carpenter for her long hours of literary advice, Mr. Howard Ringold, Ad- visor to the Tower Staff, Mr. Richard M. Ong of the Grimes-Joyce Printing Company, and Mr. John Colgan of the Colgan Engraving Company. Long hours of work have gone into the making of this book. The Staff hopes it meets with your approval.
