We present to yon the 1934 Chinook. May it serve to remind you of Montana State Normal College, its students, and traditions. In preparing this yearbook, we have sincerely tried to be as exacting as possible and to present the march of events of the past school year as realistically as a publication can. Nothing could be more gratifying to the staff than to know that you believe this Chinook is all that it should be. Time will be the element to test the worth of this book—time that should mellow its pages and enrich their significance to a glorious fullness. In after years, this book should awaken in you the desire to live again in memory the happy days of your college life. Look at your Chinook often. Scan its pages and meet with friendly faces. Make mental relationships again with those whose presence inspired you. Think of your Chinook as the medium through which you may once again live ’those glorious days that are no more."
Here Faculty and Students MeetRobert Clark, Professor of Psychology and Education
We are proud to dedicate our Chinook to a member of the State Normal College faculty, for whom 1934 marks twenty-eight years of service to higher education in Montana and as many years’ devotion to M. S. N. C. Always kindly, generous, and sympathetic, he has made college life more pleasant for us.
So foml of him are Normal College students and alumni that wherever they gather, one may hear them speak affectionately of him as "Bobby.’
In appreciation of his friendship, kindness, and generosity as well as of his work as a teacher we, the 1934 Chinook staff, present this yearbook to Professor Robert Clark.Sheldon E. Davis, President
HAVE you ever wished that you could say all and everything you wanted to? Have you felt aggrieved because you could not wail, warble, roar or swear according to mood? Well, what is holding you hack? Some there are that feel themselves repressed because . . . because .... 1 wonder whether they know? After all. who is muzzling their
expression? Do they actually want to say terrible things? Could they? Would they really In; able to voice anything eloquent, shocking, thrilling, iconoclastic or revolutionary? I wonder.
The thing that represses most of us is lack of audience. No one cares to hear, much less to listen in on our grievances, dreams or witticisms, but there are those who can speak and be heard. Enter the 1934 Chinook. It speaks the fancies, freedom and fun of the College year. Its seriousness is tied to reality but it freely speaks the language which you gave it. To its voice we listen now; its reminiscent whispers will come tomorrow. May its message find you free as you have been in giving the Chinook its voice. May you want to say what needs listening to even as this bright book is doing.
SHELDON E. DAVISThe Dean's Message
OUR daily life is your temple and your religion.
Whenever you enter into it take with you your all.
Take the plow and the forge and the mallet and the lute,
The things you have fashioned in necessity or for delight.
For in revery you cannot rise above your achievements nor fall lower than your failures.
And take with you all men:
For in adoration you cannot fly higher than their hopes nor humble yourself lower than their despair.”—Gibran.H. H. Swain, Executive Secretary
Many classes have gone out from the Normal College well prepared, expecting to deal with problems such as classes before them hud met and mastered. In 1934 you are going out into an uncharted world. No one has explored the passes that are ahead of you. No one knows which trails lead over the divide and which ones wind over a ridge hack into the valleys from which you came, or fade out in impenetrable wastes. You may have to try many trails. Do not lose heart. Remember that you are explorers. Watch well for signs. Keep open minds. Dare to take risks. And may you and those you lead reach the heights where you can glimpse the view beyond the mountains and so come to walk with surer feet toward tomorrow's goal.

About the Juniors
The Juniors have for their heritage a year crowded with activities. The Booster Club Vodvil, the making of the Chinook, and the Junior Prom are but a few of the assignments that confront the energetic Juniors. This year especially have they been making history. A new mode and manner of presenting Vodvil, creating a yearbook that displays distinction, and giving a Junior Prom that for artistic impressivness has yet to he equaled at State Normal are hut some of the inspiring examples for those who follow.

About the Sophomores
The vigilant Sophomores are always on the alert for all the honors that they can glean. One of the largest classes, they have within their ranks more than their share of talent. Athletes, dramatists, and honor roll students comprise a large part of the sophomore personnel. This year they distinguished themselves in all fields of endeavor; particularly have they been successful in athletics.

"We're Off One Hundred Per Cent! ’ With this headline screaming across its initial edition, the Montanomal made its modest hid as the official journal of M. S. N. C. January 26, 1923.
"Loyalty, pep, support, and cooperation made the Montanomal possible," said the first issue. This we know to be true, for the same qualities are still essential to the existence of our college weekly. The Montanomal has a definite place in the college life of every student. One of tin; first habits a collegian acquires on entering the Montana Normal is to look for the campus publication every Wednesday at 10:00 o’clock.
The Montanomal has steadily improved until now it has its place among the publications of other Teachers Colleges. This year the Montanomal was awarded second class rating by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, Columbia University. Entered in 1931 and 1932, it was awarded third class rating.
Every issue of the Montanomal is crammed full of up-to-the minute college news. Feature stories, sports, and humor (including Tillie) have their place.
Our paper has no "give oil steam" column; this adds to its dignity and prohibits impetuous collegians from spouting erroneous statements for their own personal settlement of grievances. (All grudges at Normal are worked off via the "manly art" method).
M iss Albertson, sponsor and general manager, keeps the Montanomal performing smoothly and efficiently despite the quarterly change of staff.

The devastating Bears keyed to tbelr best by a decisive win over the Miners ibe previous evening, looked plenty good, and Normal's chaaces of wlaalag were most meagre before game time.

The Art Club
The newly created Art Club has a system of points for membership that keeps its roster decidedly small. To be eligible for membership a student must, besides meeting certain high standards, have a required number of quarters of art.
Exceptional artistic talent may be found within the club, and drawings and paintings of no mean ability are on display in the art rooms at all times.
Last year the Art Club presented "Rip Van Winkle”, a puppet show, which in the minds of many compared favorably with Tony Sarg's marionettes. Clever dance programs and greeting cards made by the club constitute one source of revenue for the ingenious artists.
I C Cercle Francais
Creating the prestige of having refreshments at every meeting puts the Le Cercle Francais in an enviable position as an organization.
Founded in 1931, the year French was first taught at State Normal, the club has grown remarkably. Membership is open to those who have a speaking knowledge of French. To further the practical use of the language is the purpose of the club. Business and pleasure at meetings are carried on via the "parley-vous” method. Le Cercle Francais presented a novel act for Vodvil night.
A pretentious picnic in the spring quarter ends the active season for the French Club. Mrs. Luebben is the sponsor.

The Men’s Glee Club
Regardless of what the occasion may be, the Men's Glee Club will sing for you. This congenial group of young men entertained at assembly during the winter quarter, sang at some of the Dillon churches, and presented at the Booster Club Vodvil an act that was awarded first place. The club boasts an excellent membership. Mrs. Grace Redburn is the director.
The K. K.'s contend that the letters K. K. stand for "Kampus Kadets”; and Kampus Kadets stand for school spirit. (School spirit defines itself as an abstract quality that hangs like a pall over a college and may be lifted only by lusty cheers).
Active rooting for the home team constitutes their duty to the cause of more impressive victories for M. S. N. C.
The K. K.’s are partial to indoor sports—basketball games first and parlor calls a close second. Aside from their yelling, the K. K.'s devote some time to tumbling and their agile sprightliness is to be marveled at. The K. K.'s are the only uniformed organization on the campus, their official garb being white sailor suits bearing orange letters. Only one feud, so far, has worked its way into the usual calm agreement of the "Riotous Rooters’’; and that was due to a discussion that "Strawberry Short-cake’' was more euphonious to the ears of the audience than was “Give ’Em the Ax." Subtle diplomacy steered them away from a law-suit started by the copyright owners of "Mother Goose” rhymes.
Miss Marjorie Hamer sponsors the K. K.'s.

Kappa Zeta Nu
Kappa Zeta Nu is the only women's sorority on the campus. Unlike a number of volcanoes the elite society has been active since 1905. Growing out of the need of creating culture and cultivating social contacts, the club carries that ideal nobly on by giving three exclusively formal dances each year.
Initiations are held in the fall and spring. Scholarship stands as sentinel over the membership. Every winter quarter the K. Z. N. gives a Kid Party and invites all the college women.
Miss Carson is honorary sponsor of Kappa Zeta Nu.
Journalistically inclined students who can interpret proof reading signs, distinguish news from scandal, and who show a sincere interest in keeping alive the purpose of "truth through the medium of the press” may become members of the Chanticleers.
The journalists find the work interesting and educational. Besides contributing to the Montanomal and Index, they (with the disapproval of the censors) publish and sponsor the Scandal Sheet. The honorary society within the club is called the Matrix.
During the past year the club members were entertained at the homes of President and Mrs. Sheldon E. Davis and Professor Robert Clark.

To you for whom oration or declamation has an appeal, may we suggest membership in the Agitators Club, where under the guidance of Professor AI bright you may rant, rave, spout, and fume and still he protected by the ethics of the organization? The club has made a good showing for itself; meetings are most profitable, consisting, as they do, of debating and the discussion of current problems. The club was founded in 1932 and received widespread attention by debating the topic: "Resolved, That It Should He the Woman Who Pays.” Although winning the debate, the affirmative was unsuccessful in establishing the decision as a precedent.
College men who earn their spurs on the field of battle are awarded an '. r and admittance to the "M" Club.
Made up of football, basketball, baseball, track and field stars, the local athletes stand for the acme and excellence of good sportsmanship. Especially active this year, the WM” Club, besides sponsoring a dance each quarter and arranging for the inter-class basketball tourney, built a huge score hoard for the gym. The club through its own efforts earned the entire amount necessary to build the board. II. P. Kakuske, the sponsor,takes an earnest interest in the club.
After giving definite proof of some musical ability one may join the Aeolians, a group that furthers the appreciation of music. Although a new club, the interest as shown by its members assures it of a place favorable to that held by the older societies. A system of points enables the outstanding individuals to be awarded a lvre.
Mrs. Redburn, Miss Robinson, and Mr. McEadden sponsor the Aeolians.

W. A. A.
The W. A. A.’s, whose ranks are swelled hy sixty athletically inclined women, have an enviable place among campus clubs. Miking to the M' twice before breakfast at stated intervals and doing a number of other equally strenuous assignments are but a few of the prerequisites for entrance. Aside from their athletics the W. A. A.’s sponsor a varied social program. A 'Mixer' for college women starts their activities. The May Fete is the zenith of their achievements, and they climax their social soaring with an elaborate picnic.
Winged "MV are awarded those who are active in sports for five seasons, have made three teams and attended three-fourths of the practices. The local association is affiliated with the national A. C. of A. C. W.
Miss Marjorie Hamer is sponsor of the W. A. A.’s.
One of the finest organizations on the campus is the Gargoyles. Organized several years ago, the club has gone steadily ahead with its aim to increase an already growing membership and to serve the college in a dramatic way. Admittance to the club is gained only through ability and hard work. The Gargoyles 'Three-In-One-Night,' three-act plays, one-act plays, and various assembly programs form a pleasing variation of performances for the Normal College calendar. Within the club is the "Jeweled Masque,” a highly coveted honorary circle, which may be reached only by devoted service to the Gargoyle cause. Miss Myrtle Savidge is the able and helpful guide of the Gargoyles.
Page 65The Little Symphony
The Little Symphony Orchestra under the able direction of Miss Frances Robinson gave its fourth annual concert in the College auditorium on the evening of March twelve. The program presented many varied and difficult types of compositions. Especially deserving of praise was the manner in which the orchestra rendered Mozart’s Symphony in G Minor.
The beautiful lyric suite A Day in Venice by Ethelbert Nevin was brilliantly interpreted. Soloists, student artists selected from the personnel of the orchestra, were: Marguerite Collins, pianist; Willard Albright, violinist; and Ruth Phelps accompanist. Rill Ballard gave a novelty drum solo that called for skill and dexterity on the percussion instruments. This year the Little Symphony had its largest membership.
Miss Robinson is sponsor and director, and much credit is due her for the way in which the Little Symphony has progressed in musical circles.
Personnel of Little Symphony
First violins: Willard Albright (concert-mcister), Iva Stolp. Frederick Crouse. Miss Mary Schoenborn, Miss Violet Eastman, Ralph Smith, Kathryn Meade. Alice Stukey.

I'age 66Women’s Glee Club
Unusual vocal talent is to be found in the Women’s Glee Club, and members, earning their places by virtue of difficult trvouts, assure the club of only the best in singing voices.
Under the direction of Miss Frances Robinson, the group has made a creditable showing in its artistic interpretation of standard masterpieces. This year's work has been significantly successful, and programs showing special preparation have been presented to most appreciative audiences.
Besides taking part in assemblies, the Glee Club has performed on Stunt night and Vodvil programs, and has also sung at Rotary meetings and "special speaker” banquets.
The Women’s Glee Club adds much to M. S. N. C.’s musical fame with its delightful and inspiring singing.

The Fiddle Club is an almost idealistic organization. Not only ideal-istic—-it is also unmatched at Montana State Normal. It has no regular officers; it has no regular meeting time. And so in the way of societies the Fiddle Club presents itself as the utopia.
The organization was founded by Miss Frances Robinson and is open to anyone interested in the violin, its music, its construction, or in composers of violin music.
Interesting and educational programs are given by the members who meet in Miss Robinson's studio.
Many excellent violinists make up the personnel of the club, and the unique organization does much in the way of affording incentives for its members.
Aside from the regular roll, guest speakers often contribute to the programs.
Specially arranged entertainment for each meeting insures an excellent and instructive program; perfect attendance gives evidence of the interest members take in their club.
I’tifif 63Debate Squad
Hack Row: B. Thomas, M. Vanderark, G. Johnson.
Front Row: M. Corcoran, V. Frickson, M. Spaberg, V. Hatvick.
This year's debate season ended with but one defeat for the State
Composed almost in its entirety of freshmen, the forensic squad despite its lack of collegiate experience, met and mastered mature debaters from Montana State School of Mines and Intermountain Union College.
In their first intercollegiate battle of disputation, Coach Albright’s proteges defeated the skilled veterans of forensics from the School of Mines the evening of March 7. The debate was conducted according to parliamentary open forum rulings, and the audience rendered the decision. Of the one hundred and iftv-eight votes cast, eighty favored the affirmative, upheld by the State Normal, and seventy-eight the negative. The personal opinion of the question as expressed by the audience showed that sixty-two supported the affirmative while ninety-three took the negative view. Viola Erickson, Bernard Thomas, George Johnson, and Mark Vanderark represented State Normal.
The intercollegiate debate question for 1934 was, "Resolved: That, the powers of the president should be substantially increased as a settled policy.”
A team composed of Mary Corcoran and Mildred Spaberg supporting the negative side of the question won a decision from Intermountain at Helena March 8.
At Bozeman, March 9, M. S. X. C. again defended the negative but was defeated by the debaters of Montana State College.
Pa te 69The Booster Club
J. Melton J. Aldrich M. Conklin K. 1.0wry
The Booster Club composed of members of the junior class sponsored the Winter Quarter Vodvil. Introducing a new method of selecting acts for final presentation, the Booster Club invited all classes and organizations to prepare an act; after two weeks a preliminary contest was held and the best stunts were selected for final production, flic process insured a first class showing.
'fhe receipts from the Vodvil go to the Chinook, and this year they aided substantially in financing the Annual.
fhe Boosters worked wholeheartedly to assure the success of the Vodvil.
The Men’s Glee Club, presenting The Last Round-Up,” a novel stunt that brought to life again the glamorous color of the old West, won first honors in the Booster Club Vodvil held in the College auditorium, February 24, 1934.
The Vodvil was acclaimed to be one of the finest offered since its initial appearance on our calendar. A polished performance in every respect, the traditional winter quarter feature offered ten unique and spicy productions. The audience that judged the merit of the show awarded second place to the Freshmen and their clever act, ’.Noah's Ark.” Each stunt was outstanding and the task of judging was a difficult one.
A "rag painting” of "Whistler’s Mother” by Geraldine Koss and Oakel Nelson was a work of art and so realistically done as to impress deeply the audience.
"Statuettes” by the W. A. A.’s presented such well known statues as:
THE LAST ROUNDUP—First Prize-1934 Booster Vodvil
'The Fountain, " rThe Discus Thrower,” "Sympathy,” and "The Chain Frieze.”
Other acts were 'The Farmerettes" by K. Z. N.; "House of Nuts’" by the Sophomores; 'Tonsorial Trippers” by K. K.’s; and “L" Ecole Des Marionettes” by the French Club.
Cloke and Sands, Normal's inimitable comedians, received individual honors with their gags,” "wise cracks,” and distinctive brand of humor. The curtain acts were the original work of the Clever Collegiate Clowns.
The Collegians and their music also added to the success of "Vodvil Night.” fhe Chanticleers published the scandal sheet and disguised it under the name of the "Gimlet” since it bored into the secret and dark past of everyone.
NOAH’S ARK—Second Prize—1934 Booster VodvilThe Gargoyle Three-Act Play
"The Late Christopher Bean." a play by Sidney Howard which was given third place in the Pulitzer awards of last year, was presented by the Gargoyles, Friday evening, March 2, in the Normal College auditorium. By many this play was considered the Gargoyles' most impressive performance.
The story of the play which centered around the paintings of the deceased Christopher Bean brought about a situation so humanly realistic that the audience felt itself a part of the play. Gargoyle talent was at its best, and every player was fitted exactly for his role. Bill Chance portrayed with effective ease the part of a New England doctor, who, until upset by the predicament of finding himself almost wealthy, had led a life of calm and cjuiet and abhored nothing so much as greed. Bill played well the part of Mr. Haggett. file part of Mrs. Haggett acted by Helen Taylor showed most interestingly a mother's place in a home where diflerence of opinion helps to break the monotony of too much peace and agreement. Margery Fisher as Gwenny Thomas controlled the suspense of the play. Her part in the life and works of Christopher Bean was the crux of the entire situation. Esther Leyson and Vione Bollum did their parts exceptionally well. Their portrayal of two entirely different sisters gave the audience a study in contrast. A determined young painter who feared not even the wrath of Mrs. Ilaggatt, portrayed by Marcus Nichols as Warren Cramer, furthered the complication of things. LeRoy Sands as Tallent, a shrewd picture "shyster,” played his assignment with such poise and realism that one would not for a minute doubt his sincerity. Erling Richardson as Mr. Rosen, another picture crook, and Robert Murray as Mr. Davenport, an art critic, did creditably in their roles.
Miss Myrtle Savidge with the aid of Carol Wood and a staff of able assistants directed the play.

Margery Fisher was elected May Queen and crowned on the evening of May 18. She and her four attendants—Erma Cusker, Ruth Phelps, Alice Matson, and Janet Aldrich—were feted in a truly southern manner and atmosphere, by the gentry of the South who had gathered in honor of the coronation.
The out-door setting of magnolia trees, cotton plants, and the "Cabin in the Cotton” added much to the impressiveness of the ceremony and the beauty of the dances.
The 1933 May Fete
Every year the students and the faculty at M. S. N. C. select the five most popular girls in the school. At a second election the most popular of the five is selected to reign as queen of the annual May Fete.
The results of the 1933 election were kept a dark secret until Queen Frances Bovee walked down the gang plank of the good ship Esperanto as Naidu, queen of India, followed by her four attendants, Dorothy Somerville, Eileen Berry, Florence Murphy, and Jean Hunter.
While inspecting the visiting liner Naidu had extended an invitation to the passengers and crew to attend her court that evening.
Groups of people representing many different nations accepted, and entertained the Queen with songs and dances from their homelands. Among those entertaining were the Russians who danced the Kamarinskuia, and the Spanigh dancers who portrayed the Espana.
J. Edgar, B. Ashcraft, H. Cloke, L. Sands.
Something new and different broke the tranquil tenor of Normal College life one evening in November, 1933, when a timid but determined and hopeful group of aspirants to musical glory and "better dances" trekked shyly across the "Rec” hall floor toward the piano to render their first dance program.
Unannounced and unarmed the embryo Collegians entered, with all eyes turned their way, for anything besides a tempermental piano-player on an ordinary "Rec” night deserved attention. Although their first exploit into musical circles wasn’t too hot, the Collegians did go from worse to better.
Inaugurating a new Collegiate tempo, creating a novel style of rhythm and beating out a here-to-fore unknown brand of "pep” and "hokum,” the Collegians blazed a trail of both fame and flames.
Miestro Bud Sands, whose clowning is amusing anywhere, proved doubly effective when tooting torridly on his woodwind. Hairbreadth Harry Cloke
c j j
poured forth his musical whims on a hot alto saxophone. Jay Edgar, the "non-salesman” drummer, steadied the Collegians with his sense of time.
The real genious of the Collegians was Miss Burma Ashcraft. When she played one just had to dance, thus eliminating the ’ stag line” and the Dean’s worries.
It is the hope of the Collegians that next year a group of similar musicians will carry on their noble idea.
Page 78Marionette Play
One of the most interesting and unusual entertainments of 1933 was the puppet play, "Hip Van Winkle,” which was presented last spring by the members of the Art Club. The play marked the culmination of many long months of hard work during which time each delicate feature of the tiny figures was made by hand, scenery painted, and the small stage built. Miniature bits of furniture and household articles were gathered together; lines were learned, and each member of the cast endeavored to learn by practice how to manipulate the little people so as to simulate life movement.
Four performances, two matinees for children and two in the evening for townspeople and students, were exceedingly well attended. The puffs of smoke from fat Nick Vedder’s pipe, as he blissfully smoked in the sunshine outside the Royal George Inn, brought shrieks of delight from the grown-ups as well as from children. Club members taking part were: Dola Taft, Iva Stolp, Helen Ida Best, Flora Holden, Lillian Talbott, Duane Taft, John Strosky, and Elwood Comer with the valuable supervision and assistance of Miss Mary Baker, Art Club sponsor. Excellent dramatic coaching was given by Miss Violet Eastman of the Beaverhead County High School Faculty.
John Strosky Represents M. S. N. C.
John Strosky, a June graduating senior, represented the Montana State Normal College at the 1934 State Oratorical Contest, speaking on the subject, ' Civil Reform.” This year the contest convened in Helena, May 4, under the auspices of the Intermountain Union College.
The contest is annual. Each unit of the Greater University usually sends a contestant. This year there were six.
The 1933 contest was held in Dillon under the auspices of the Montana State Normal College. At this time John Strosky was also our representative. He w'as awarded third place.
Professor Jordan accompanied Mr. Strosky to Helena, Professor Albright, the coach in oratory, being in Northern Montana in the professional interests of the Normal College.

Twenty-Seventh Annual Commencement 10:00 .... College Auditorium
The commencement play was the rollicking comedy, 'The Big Pond,” written by George Middleton and A. E. Thomas. The play was directed by Miss Savidge, with Margery Fisher acting as assistant director. The east was as follows:
Henry Billings, an American business man. Erling Richardson
Mrs. Billings, his wife, Doris Biliington
Barbara Billings, his daughter. Alberta Johnson
Ronny Davis, a young American, I-eRoy Sands
Pierre de Mirande, a French courier. James Kurt
Mrs. James Livermore, an American newspaper woman, Virginia Nichols
Sarah, a maid, Ruth Phelps
Molly Perkins, a stenographer. Margery Fisher
Francesco, an Italian servant, Don Lcaverton
Typical European and American viewpoints are amusingly portrayed in this entertaining comedy. Act one shows the Billings family in Europe, with Mrs. Billings and Barbara reveling in the romatic beauty and strangeness of the scene. On the other hand Mr. Billings and Ronny, his young business assistant, are "as much at home as a porcupine in a boudoir”—to use Ronny's phrase. They are wholly unable to understand the European gentleman point of view of Pierre de Mirande, whose finances have reduced him to accept a courier's job with the Billings family.
Acts two and three show Pierre de Mirande becoming a typical American business man in the Billings rubber manufacturing establishment in Vernon, Ohio, after an interesting crossing of "the big pond.”

A new coach, Herbert I Kakuske, developed this year's football squad in a most promising manner. Coach Kakuske attended Milton College and the University of Wisconsin. A thorough knowledge of football, coupled with an excellent teaching procedure, enabled him to turn out a good eleven from green material.
Enjoying the entire confidence of his athletes, Coach Kakuske instilled a high spirit of competitive interest
and confidence in This season, the

About the Team
Although losing all four games, the Normal football team completed a season successful from every other standpoint. No track meet scores were recorded against this year's eleven, despite the fact that it faced heavier and more experienced opponents in each game. Physically and mentally, the Bulldog gridders were in excellent condition throughout the season.
Thirty men turned out, and Coach Kakuske rapidly whipped them into shape for the opening contest with the School of Mines at Butte. Only seven lettermen returned, and the new mentor was at an obvious disadvantage in teaching new material a new system.
The Bulldogs followed a new system whereby acting captains were appointed for each game. At the close of the season "Cat” Thompson was elected honorary captain. "Cat," a two year veteran at center, was the most reliable defensive man on the team and a constant source of inspiration to his teammates.
"Shy” Callahan, the Normal’s outstanding athlete, is the only player lost by graduation. "Shy,” also the Normal’s only four-stripe letter man, led the team in scoring, receiving and converting two of Vandegrift’s passes into touchdowns.
Two players from the M. S. N. C. eleven received honorable mention for all-state honors: Vandegrift at fullback and Osburn at quarterback. "Vandy” was the Normal triple threat star, outpunting his opponent in every game and teaming up with Callahan to form the outstanding pass offense of the state. Osburn was the squad’s smallest man, but by his great defensive play and punt returns, he truly displayed all-state ability.
Page 82F. Vandegrift
In the season’s opener with the Mines, the Bulldogs lost a valuable man when Jimmy Melton, another dynamic little quarterback, suffered a severe knee injury which kept him out of a suit for the rest of the season.
Opening the Normal football season and dedicating Leonard Field at Butte, the Bulldogs dropped a 38-0 decision to the heavy, experienced School of Mines eleven.
The Miners’ deceptive offense at first completely baffled the Bulldogs, allowing the Orediggers to tally early and often. The Normal’s defense then tightened and the Bulldogs countered with two goal drives which were inches short of touchdowns.
Bay Osburn, diminutive safety man, played havoc with the Miners’ passes, intercepting two, knocking down others, and upsetting many Orediggers, supposedly goal ward bound. John Hickey, acting game captain, led the Normal offense with his hard blocking.
"Shy” Callahan played a marvelous game at end, yielding not a single yard to the Miners while Thompson and Dean also proved stellar defense men for the Bulldogs.
Ricks Vikings Here
Meeting another veteran eleven, the Normalites lost a hard fought game to the Kicks Vikings, 12-0, on the home field October 20.
Ricks received and opened with a yardage drive deep into Normal
territory. With the ball on the four-yard line the Bulldogs held for four downs, and Vandegrift then kicked out of danger. For three quarters the game remained scoreless, but Ricks, not to be denied, finally tallied twice. Both goal tries were blocked.
The punting of Vandegrift, game captain, was outstanding for the Normal while Wetzel, the Browning flash, starred both offensively and defensively. "Shy’’ Callahan was the defensive luminary of the Bulldog line.

Panthers Versus Bulldogs
Playing in a miniature blizzard here, the Intermountain Panthers trekked off the field with a 19-6 verdict after four quarters of fast November football.
Although heavy favorites, the Panthers wfere forced to extend themselves to meet the superb defense of the Bulldogs which was led by Thompson, game captain. The Bulldogs not only played a great defensive game but countered with a dazzling aerial attack w hich resulted in their first touchdown of the season. Vandegrift tossed to "Shy" Callahan, who eluded three Panthers while sprinting forty yards to cross the goal line.
The Bulldogs sensational passing attack was all the more remarkable because of the adverse weather conditions. Vandegrift passed with unerring accuracy and the Callahan brothers, "Shy"and Jimmy, made several remarkable catches. Dean, the Normal juggernaut, varied the attack with his powerful line plunges.
Roesti and Wetzel were the mainstays of the defense.

Armistice Day Game
Leading 13-12 in the last quarter the Bulldogs, weary but still fighting, finally weakened and lost the Armistice Day game 25-13 to the undefeated Bobkittens from Montana State College.
Boasting several former all-state high school players, the Bobkittens’ smooth grid machine counted first. Then a blocked punt and a hard plunge by Dean tied the score at six all. The Bobkittens scored again to lead 12-6 at the half.
Opening the second half, Vandegrift passed to Acting Captain Callahan for another touchdown. Wetzel cracked the line for the conversion, giving the Normal a 13-12 lead. Fresh replacements by the Kittens, however, gave them two more touchdowns for a final 25-13 score.
This game had no particular star for the Normal. Every player gave his best. "Moose" Rouse played his best game of the year, opening the hole through which Dean scored standing up.
Roesti, Hildreth, Thompson, and Kenny made the line impregnable.
With the Bobkitten game ringing down the curtain on this year’s football schedule, Bulldog fans may look into the future of football here as definitely on an upward trend. The entire squad, with the exception of 'Shy” Callahan, is eligible to return. If all 1933 men do return, Coach Kakuske will have more experienced material with which to work next fall, and on the other hand the returning men will have had the benefit of a year's experience in learning the coach’s system.

Assuming his duties head, Coach Kakuske the orthodox western style of play and taught the slow-breaking offensive eastern style. This type of basketball, once learned by the men, proved most effective, and the Normal students are justly proud of their new coach and his successful basketball team.
Aiding Coach Kakuske was Jimmy .Melton,
as basketball who coached the rB" squad. Jimmy’s
broke from untiring efforts enabled the ”B"
squad to finish the season with four successive victories.
Bill Olson was basketball manager, and he handled his duties in an extremely efficient manner. Two capable assistants were A n t h o n y M u r p h y a n d Anthony Bra ms-man. The work of these two as well as that of Bill Olson was apppreciated.

The outstanding athlete at Montana State Normal College,"Shy" Callahan, was graduated this year after having won twelve letters in active competition.
"Shv" has represented the Normal College on the football field, the basketball floor, and the baseball diamond. lie has always given his best and always played a clean game.
Captain of two Bulldog football teams and captain of three Bulldog basketball teams, he has contributed a great deal to Normal College athletics. He is the only Normal College man to win four stripes for as many years’ performance as a Bulldog
athlete. An eight-inch block "M” with its four bars and a star, a most coveted award, was presented to him February 24, between halves at the basketball game between the Bulldogs and the House of David. President Sheldon E. Davis made the presentation, highly com pi i menti ng "Shy” for his ability, clean sportsmanship, and athletic attainments.
With his graduation, Montana State Normal College loses not only one of its most popular stu-Sh dents and its best
athlete but also its greatest competitive sportsman, "Shy” Callahan.
Winning eighteen of its twenty-nine games, the Bulldog basketball team completed the most successful season in its history by placing second in the state collegiate race. Of these twenty-nine games, twelve were state inter-col legiate contests, and Coach Kakuske’s men emerged the victors in nine of them. The Bulldogs were the only state collegiate team to defeat the University quint, this year’s champions, winning by a 44-35 score here.
In the early part of the season, the Bulldogs started slowly, but once having mastered the slow-breaking, short pass offense, they presented an efficient scoring attack and a capable defense. Four lettermen returned from last year's squad: Captain Callahan, House, Thompson, and Vandegrift.
Vandegrift played in only a few early games, however, as he did not enroll
Page 88E. Rouse R. Hamilton R. Thompson
for the winter quarter. Several new men aided the lettermen, and Ilickev and Hove, both of whom saw action last year, were valuable additions. The reserve strength was exceptionally talented this year.
"Moose” Rouse was the leading scorer this year, totalling 301 points in twenty-eight games for an average of 10.8 points per game. "Shy” Callahan, captain, was second with 293 points in twenty-nine games for a 10.1 point game average.
The starting lineup consisted of Callahan and Dyche, forwards; Rouse and Thompson, guards; and McGinley, center. Dyche’s ball-rustling contributed greatly to the team's efficiency, and Thompson continued his great work of last year as the outstanding defensive collegiate star of the state. McGinley was the smoothest floor-worker of the squad by virtue of his exceptional passing and defensive play.
Hamilton and Hickey were the reserve guards; Hove and Eudaily, the reserve forwards, while Conklin understudied McGinley as center. These five were almost the equal of the first quintet and saw a great deal of action.
The Bulldogs played four pre-season games before meeting the Bobcats from Montana State College, winning all four. The Lima Independents were the first victims, being swamped by a 66-16 count here. Next theNormalites traveled to Three Forks where they defeated the Three Forks Independents
Pate HIL. Conklin
45-19, December 22. Twin Bridges came here December 27 and was overwhelmed 71-11, and on the following night the Anaconda Anodes were smothered 66-30 here.
Substituting for the Golden Bobcats, the Montana State Bobcats opposed the Normal here December 29, and the Bulldogs suffered their first loss of the season, the score being 45-30. Obviously off form the Bulldogs missed more than two-thirds of their scoring opportunities while the Bobcats shot with unerring accuracy. Vandegrift playing his last intercollegiate contest of the season, was the Normal star of the evening, garnering 13 points besides contributing a great floor game.
On New Year’s Day, the Ogden Boosters, former A. A. U. champions under the Wichita Henry name, came, saw, and conquered by a 69-24 score. This great team displayed a truly marvelous brand of basketball with which the Bulldogs could not cope. Miller, former All-American forward, counted twenty-eight tallies with an almost effortless rhythm. The Normal scoring was evenly distributed.
In their first out-of-state collegiate contest, the Bulldogs lost to the smooth-working North Dakota Teachers College from Jamestown by a 43-27 score on January 5 at Dillon. Again, inability to connect with the hoop was the chief cause of losing, the Normal quint making but seven field goals.

Lose and Win
In their fourth successive defeat, the Bulldogs lost a close contest to the Gonzaga Bulldogs 32-29 here January 11. In this game the Montana Bulldogs regained their early season form to provide a last minute rally which barely fell short of victory. "Shy” Callahan led the Normal attack with fourteen points.
Returning to the winning column, the Normal basketeers won from Billings Poly 45-29 on the gym floor January 15. Every man on the squad played in this contest, and teamwork was the keynote of the evening.
Split With Idaho
The Southern Branch of the University of Idaho came here for a two-game series January 17 and 18. The Idaho quintet, boasting one of the fastest teams in the West, was upset by Coach Kakuske’s men 47-40 in one of the most thrilling games ever played here. The Normalites played inspired basketball, tallying seventeen points to five for the Idaho Tigers to start the game. Then an Idaho rally gave the Southern Branch a 25 23 lead at the half. Starting the second half Idaho gained a bigger lead, saw it cut down and then lost as the Bulldog luminaries, Callahan and Rouse, scored baskets to give the Normal a lead which it held until the gun. Callahan scored fifteen points and Rouse twelve, to lead the Bulldog offense. ’ Cat” Thompson’s great defensive work was outstanding. In the second game the Normal team lost 37-31 after gaining a last-minute lead only to see the Idahoans drop in four baskets for ultimate victory.
Pag 9 Beat Intermountain—Upset Grizzlies
On January 19, the Bulldogs defeated an old rival. Intermountain, here 34-28. The Normal did not play the exceptional hall exhibited in the Idaho series, suffering from a let-down, and the game was close all the way. Another last-minute rally brought victory, however.
Going to Anaconda for the fifth game of the week, the Bulldogs fell into a fatal slump and lost 46-32, January 20. House was high man for the Normal, gathering fifteen counters.
On January 26, the Normal cagers met the mighty Grizzlies from the State University in a game played at Dillon. The Bulldogs achieved the greatest upset in the season s state intercollegiate race by taking the long end of a 44-35 score. The smooth-working Normal machine, off to a good start by counting first, dropped the lead but twice thereafter, and then settled down to play winning basketball. 'I bis game was the first meeting of the two schools on the basketball court and a most satisfactory meeting from the Normal standpoint. "Cat” Thompson held the high-scoring Grizzly, Brown, to a lone basket while his teammates ably assisted on a strong defense. Rouse and Dyche contributed eleven points each to the Normal cause.
Next came the Normal’s archrivals, the Miners from Butte. This game played here on January 27, was the most thrilling game of the season. With ten seconds to go and the Normal trailing 37-38, Ralph Eudaily sank a long shot from midcourt to give the Bulldogs their first victory over the Mines since 1927. The game as rough as it was exciting, was enough to make a successful season, the final score being 39-38.
At half-time the Bulldogs were behind 20-13, but in a wild second half they came through with their customary whirlwind finish to win the game. Rouse and Dyche were high scorers for the Normal, tallying twelve and ten points respectively.
The Big Timber Independents succumbed to the Bulldogs January 30 by a 37-23 count in a game played in Dillon. The Normal played easily, winning the same way.
Almost upset by the fast moving Northern Lights from Northern Montana College, the Bulldogs barely squeezed out a 25-21 victory in an overtime period game, February 2 at Dillon. With the first string trailing
IV 92in the first half, Coach Kakuske sent in his second five, who performed ably, tying the score at twelve all at the half. The ball-rustling of "Red” Hamilton featured this half. Starting the second half, the Havre athletes gained a slight lead. The Bulldog first string then returned to the game and tied the count as the whistle ended the contest. In the overtime period Callahan and Dyche connected for baskets, giving the Normal a 25-21 win.
Playing the last collegiate home game of the season February 6, the Normal team easily defeated the Eastern Normal College squad 47-24 after a slow start. The reserves played the greater part of the game, building up an 18-12 lead at half time. Starting the second half, the Yellow Jackets rallied to trail by one point at 20-19 with but seven minutes to go. The regulars were sent back in and rang up twenty-seven points to five for the Billings boys, the game ending 47-24. Rouse was high with fourteen points.
Opposing Billings Poly there in the first of a four-game road trip, the Normal five chalked up another victory on February 10. Rouse, with twelve points, and Callahan with eleven, were the high gunners for M. S. N. C.
Smooth teamwork featured when the Bulldogs romped over the Eastern Normal at Billings 40-15, F'ebruary 15. The reserves played much of the game.
February 13 proved a real jinx to the Normalites who dropped a 46-39 verdict to the Big Timber Independents at Big Timber. Saving his starting five for the ensuing Mines game, Coach Kakuske used reserves for the greater part of the game.
Winding up their eastern road series, the Bulldogs met the powerful Miners at Butte and lost a nerve-racking tussle, 39-32, before a large crowd. About two hundred Normal students attended. The first half was exceedingly close, the lead changing twice, the score being tied three times. Then the effects of the long trip and strenuous series began to tell on the Bulldogs, and the Miners pulled away to a lead which was never seriously threatened thereafter. "Cat” Thompson’s work on defense was the outstanding feature of the whole game, and McGinley’s floor-play was exceptional. Rouse was the most consistent shot for the Normal, netting twelve points; McGinley scored nine.
Freebourns, state independent champions, came to Dillon, February 20, and lost to the Normal, 46-43.
« • 93J ake Panthers but Upset by Havre
Leaving on their trip to meet their northern opponents, the Bulldogs first played Intermountain at Helena, February 21, and added another victory, 56-45. Rouse counted twenty points; Callahan, seventeen; McGinley, thirteen. Next the Bulldogs met a tartar in the Havre Northern Lights, losing 31-27. This game was a decided upset, but the Bulldogs could not consistently connect with the hoop.
Reversing their form of the previous night, the Bulldogs easily defeated Murphy-MacClays of Great Falls, 42-31. Callahan had one of his characteristic Great Falls evenings, connecting for twenty-two markers.
Beat Bearded Basketeers
Playing before a full house, the Bulldogs returned to their home floor February 24 to oppose the bearded wonders, the House of David baskeleer crew. A fast start, climaxed by an even faster finish, enabled the collegians to take a 41-38 decision after forty minutes of real basketball. "Shy” Callahan finished his collegiate basketball career here by making nineteen points. Between halves, "Shy” was presented with a four-striped "M” letter, he being the school's only four-year athlete.
To wind up the basketball season, the Bulldogs went to Pocatello for a two-game series with the Southern Branch of Idaho. The Tigers were decidedly on form, and the Bulldogs lost both games—the first, 55-33, and the second, 34-24.
Those who participated in enough intercollegiate competition to win awards were: Captain Shirley Callahan, Emory Rouse, Rayburn Thompson,
Luke Dyche, Bernard McGinley, John Hickey, Ralph Eudaily, Ralph Hove, Bob Hamilton, and Lawrence Conklin.

The track team of 1933, coached by Brick Breeden, had one opportunity for competition by attending the state meet at Missoula. The Bulldog entrants, however, found competition too stiff for them to place. Eflorts to schedule a dual meet with one of the smaller schools met with no success.
However, the season was not unsuccessful. Promising material for the future was uncovered and developed by Brick, and an interclass track meet, won by the sophomores, was enjoyed by the contestants.

1 D O O1933 Tennis
Ralph Hove, Clarence Baker.
Tennis proves to be the most takable tonic for spring fever, and State Normal racquet ardents continually tax the none too spacious tennis courts. Starting play as soon as the weatherman gives consent, the zealous racquet wielders bat balls hither, thither, and yon from dawn til dark and from March to November. Competent competitors compose the complex competition that complicates considerably the classification of contestants, but composure, calmness, and even compunction continually concoct into constant comradship despite wins or losses.
Spring rains broke in on the men’s singles tourney, and it was necessary for Coach Breeden to select the two "best" players in order that M. S. N. C. might be represented at the state meet. C. Baker and R. Hove were chosen but met with tough luck in intercollegiate competition.
The mixed doubles had the largest followings and W. Straugh and F. Bovee played hard to beat a fast field of entries in a three-week tournament. L. Baxter and A. Rudolph dispensed with their usual love games and copped second; I). Osborne and D. Taft placed third.
Pant 100Women’s Doubles
Della Mae Osborne, Frances Bovee. William Slraugh, Frances Bovee.
A large entry list for women’s single and double honors was soon narrowed down to a few of the best, and in the finals for single supremacy Della Mac Osborne defeated Hob Bovee. These two also won easily in the women's doubles.
'fbe increasing interest in tennis ami the number of players that are developing good playing form assure M. S. N. C. of the best in "racqueteers.
Speed ball was played for the first time at M. S. N. C. the autumn quarter of this year. Enthusiasm and interest ran high as was indicated by the large turn out. It did not take long for the girls to get acquainted with the game and develop some skill. At the beginning of the season the games were played outside, hut later because of the weather the practices were held in the gym.
In the color tournament the “Reds" emerged victorious after a number of close contests.
Sophomores came out on top in the inter-class tournament, defeating both the freshman and the junior-senior teams; freshmen placed second.
Results of the games were:
Sophomores 25—Junior-Seniors 8.
Sophomores 23—Freshmen 21.

Volley ball turnout during the winter quarter was especially large. Each class had a worthy representation. The Freshmen proved to be the best players in the inter-class tournament by defeating the Sophomores and the Junior-Seniors.
In the color contest the Junior-Senior-Faculty "’Blue" team came out on top winning from the Freshmen and Sophomores.
Each dorm team and the town team turned out in gay regalia ready to obtain victory. The fighting Indians subdued the other teams in short order.

Freshmen were again victorious in the color tournament. Their white team won the final game by beating the Sophomore ’’Reds.

“Persephone," a glamorous spectacle that displayed the aquatic ability of the Dolphins, was presented to enthusiastic crowds of students and townspeople the evenings of December 8 and 9. The elaborate pageant eclipsed everything that has ever been ottered at State Normal College in the form of water exhibitions.
The theme of the pageant was the kidnaping of Persephone by Pluto, who carried her to his throne and issued a decree that forfeit must he paid for her return. The various swimming and diving events by the Dolphins constituted the tribute.
Pa tv I OSTwenty four individual and group events made up the program, and a bevy of bouyant mermaids gave an exhibition of swimming and diving skill that astonished the spectators and brought for the M. S. N. C. water nymphs applause and laudation that proved the pageant to be a sensational and scintillating show.
Form swimming exhibited a number of difficult but beautiful formations. Lattice work, tandem and shadow swimming, pinwheels, and submarine swimming were but a few of the coordinate and majestic maneuverings of the dexterous Dolphins. Comic and fancy diving, racing and exhibitions of life saving were also effectively done.
fhe lighting effects enhanced the scene, and a flood of soft blue beams blended with the pale green rays of the pool.
The candlelight parade, imposing and pompous, and the forming of the f’M" made an impressive ending for tin; pageantry.
Assisting the Dolphins were Duane Dugan, Roy Forrester, Muriel, Margaret, and Marion Bower, and Klsie Lloyd.
Miss Marjorie Hamer worked untiringly in training the Dolphins for the water festival.Speed Ball Lineup

Prom DatesBook Three
AdvertisingYour Dates at M. S. N. C.
In refutation of a popular though false conception that Normal students are not obliged to endure or not even permitted to enjoy dates, may we present the following concoction usually referred to in yearbooks as the calendar? A brief review of your activities should not be incongruous with our efforts to present an annual lacking in rusticity though not entirely free from clownishness. From first to last, registration to graduation, and from Deer Lodge to Conrad, we hope you like it.
Along with Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and the Fourth of July, citizens of Dillon anticipate joyfully the opening of the Normal College. (They observe it by meeting students at the train in their cars.) The filling of Montana's finest dormitory (shown on the division page preceding this section) is of interest to every mother’s son of them. (The number is 24.)
Prior to any formal instruction, the importance of the theory of lines in education is quite forcibly impressed upon the raw material of teachers. Thorough pre-testing of bodily and pocket-book stamina is completed by a rigid plan which requires that everyone get some immediate personal experience with lines — registration, text-book and dotted. Class instruction, beginning September 26, after the breakfast line, afforded interesting insights on many lines. We could see very little parallel between geometric lines in math and the poetry lines in literature. However, it is quite easy to associate the bread line of Social Problems with the waist line of clothing class. It is quite likely that the "Pig Sisters" resorted to steam-ship lines to orient many of the new girls. Some already knew about Shanghi Lil.
Fridav a very large number, practically all of the first quarter students, attended the Dean’s impressive annual reception. (Everybody meets everybody else. A few remember.) There seemed to the co-eds no end of
I'age 113formidable lines. Upon repairing and appearing in "Rec“ hall they were staggered by the stag line and smeared behind the line of scrimmage by lines of defense and offense hv Murphy and Lewis. They were literally going in circles. Some had them under the optics. However, the arcs of the circles were lengthened by an earnest entreaty Sunday to keep to the straight and narrow line.
A faculty member was elected October 4 to hold the lines for the several classes. Also there appeared the initial edition of the Montanomal under the Cloke regime which performed unusually successfully both financially and editorially. The high-lights of this edition was Cloke’s poetic plea to prevent the atrophy of “Go" day. We went to Dillmont October 6. "The "Go" day filled all students with a zest, and college fun was really at its best.’’
The junior class, October 10, solved very well, we hope, the problem of selecting a Chinook staff. The chief qualification suggested to aid in the choice of staff members was a negative one. A member shall not be permitted to fall foolishly in love and remain a member. Although his mother lavishes fond affection upon him, the editor was elected unanimously.
Posture lines were of interest at the W. A. A. party October 13. (This is purely conjecture.)
October 14 the Bulldogs met the Mines at Butte in a hard-fought game, one in which they failed by inches to cross the last white line.
The Dean entertained October 20, very successfully with a house dance. All College students, faculty, friends and a few towns-people were invited. The "Conoco1' boys, exponents of the hidden quart, had to leave early, but before going expressed a desire to support the N. R. A.—no rules at all.
Presenting the best ever in the way of variety entertainment. Normal's Novelty Stunt Nighters, reveling in true Hallowe’en spirit, pleased a large crowd. Stunt night is a presentation in which every major organization stages a short act, each of which is always the most original and best liked by the audience. Some clubs invariably take advantage of this occasion to do a little choice though unnecessary advertising.
November 3 the Panthers of Intermountain were entertained in a hot contest in which the Bulldogs scored their first touch-down
Showing conclusive evidence of thorough coaching the Bulldogs signed a football peace treaty November 11 for the 1933 season, losing to a strong
’«! («• INBobkitten squad after having held a lead through the third quarter. Those teams fought like cats and dogs!
Saturday night Normal students were entertained at a house dance featuring "Cloke’s Cyncopating Collegians," Normal's first successful dance hand. When X. E. R. entertainers are unable to execute a requested number they play "Sand.” The Collegians are more versatile. In similar situations they alternate between "Shanghai Lil" and "Saint Louis Blues."
In a round robin basketball tournament, November 21-23, the freshmen lettermen emerged victorious in spite of Jordan's (Senior-Junior coach) alarm clock, which proves that two-timing doesn't pay.
The "M" Club formal forecasted a gym scoreboard. Peanut politicians in view of the K. Z. N. dance were actively engaged in testing their vote getting ability, believe you me. A turkey feast did much to assuage the grief and disappointment of those who did not enjoy the moon light dances at the Guild Hall December 2.
The Index issued December 4 in place of the usual Montanomal was received with that well known Chesterfield attitude—'It's fun to be fooled," etc. Tilly could find no dirt that week anyway. Rose Ann L., being fond of music and in love with Bill, listened to a lyre all evening. Frankie P. suffered from rather vivid blushing when exposed by a flash of powder alleged to have been set off from contact with a hot-shot.
Disregarding the well known fact that those who never do anything on time need have no fear of the installment collector, the juniors elected a Booster Club December 6 which was intended to help finance the Chinook.
Playing stellar ball Max Kenny nosed out a fast field and became Normal's fiirst ping pong champion. Incidentally Max is displaying a football "M.”
In "Persephone” the Dolphins, presenting Normal's premier aquatic pageant, displayed many stars.
Next came a couple of banquets and a revival of learning to fortify students for the last roundup. Faculty members marshalled forces to prepare a complete battery of exams to test their pedagogical ability. The honor roll visions of many college students were blurred. The distant report of a few big guns died out leaving no more of an echo than a wet fire-cracker. Normal has turned out many fine men.
I'age IISCommencement, achievement of academic success, is staged for a few; the quarter has closed for all of us.
Enjoy your vacation! 'I'ry your saved-up sales ability on the boys and girls at home. Tilly won’t tell!
The winter quarter calendar is practically a history of the basketball season. Our team displayed about everything from championship form at basketball to no mean ability in a pantomime of 'The Last of the Ten Thousand.”
A restful week-end, restful because of the W. A. A. party, broke a run of successive losses to the Ogden Boosters, Dakota Teachers, and Gonzaga. In the latter game fans were able to take advantage of ability to pick the winner.
At the game, January 19, the finest score-board in Montana was presented to the College by the ”M” Club. It is truly the father of score-boards and chips off it could replace present tally devices in other gymnasiums.
Saturday night, January 20, Normal girls borrowed the second best suits, shirts, and shoes of their hoy friends, concocted dates, and escorted them to "Rec” hall to enjoy the annual Co-ed Prom.
The conceit of the veteran team of the University was cut deep, wide, and forever by their defeat at Dillon, January 26. Seeing their names in eight-inch letters on an electric score-board proved a little too novel to the already over confident Grizzlies. This explains the defeat as well as the defeat of any out-classed team can be explained.
February 3 was the occasion of the girls' Valentine Varsity. An exceptional crowd was there—exceptional both because of size and rusticity. However, the prevalent idea that Emily Post is a division of the American Legion did not keep the evening from being a great success, to which the Collegians contributed materially.
To Butte, February 14, journeyed Dillon basketball fans to attend the crucical test of the Bulldogs in the championship race. Cheering co-eds were not enough to ofi-set the luck of an elongated Scandinavian. Despite the
Pag 116effects of such a feverish fracas the co-eds were hack to normal the next dav.
The Churchman’s Club was host at the Guild Hall, February 16, at one of the most enjoyable "affairs” of the quarter. Music played from the bower)’ by the Collegians was doubly enhanced by an occasional moonlight dance with the roommate’s girl friend.
Vodvil presented by the Booster Club, February 24, was one of the best, exhibiting a very pleasing degree of polish and finish. Cloke and Sands doing their stuft between acts kept the crowd in a roar of laughter. The competitive basis of performance injected spite and spirit into the contributions, resulting in the "Last Roundup" coming first. The scandal sheet was distributed before the Vodvil opened and between acts.
The Union Pacific System presented a choice bit of advertising February 26, with some scenic slides in the auditorium. What could he more appropriate than to grab a handful of box-cars some day and examine those scenes with a side-door pullman perspective?
The House of Davids lacked some of the smooth style displayed last year, being unable to come out of the brush.
Gargoyles, presented the "Late Christopher Bean,” March 2, for their annual three-act production. It was unusually well dramatized.
Kappa Zeta Nu entertained the college women at a "kid party” Saturday night, March 3, while the men attended a high school formal. The girls reported a gleeful evening, but so did the boys.
March 7, Normal College debaters extended unlimited power to the president as the result of a battle of wits and words with a loquacious squad of "Miners.”
As a fitting climax to the winter quarter social calendar, the "M" Club sponsored a formal dance which eclipsed anything and everything. The co-eds responded in a most pleasing manner, the grand march being a veritable dress parade. At least it was a parade! Appreciation for the Collegian orchestra was keenly felt on this occasion. In the language of the day they rendered some pretty "hot stuff." Several co-eds attribute their return to normal to such rhythm.
Quite in keeping with diplomatic policy, the seniors were entertained with dinner the evening before graduation. Satisfaction is reflected in the matriculation of the sons and daughters of alumni.
Page 117Spring Quarter
Following a two-day period of co-ed convalescence, the spring quarter opened March 19, accompanied by a shake-up in subjects, students, and instructors, not wholly unwelcomed. Many regard this as the most enjoyable term as spring is the time when the young man's fancy lightly spurns the the thoughts of the bachelor of ed. in favor of a co-ed. Indeed, social possibilities are much enhanced by the favorable conditions which bring forth the birds, bees, and Cupid's "proteges."
A house dance each week during the early part of the quarter broke the monotony of committee work for May Fete, Chinook, and Junior Prom.
Making use of the recognized primary interests, purse and personal, Normal's most select sorority, April 16, pulled and polled for pledges. Twenty-two were voted as having the potential popularity to perpetuate the Kappa Zeta Nu.
April 18 a lyceum number, the chorus of Madame Slaviansky, won unanimous approval of students and faculty.
The faculty and agitators locked horns April 20 over the question "Shall all students be required to endure all physical torture courses?" The faculty proved to be the better as comedians, but not so good as agitators. Brutality of football, they urged, should be tempered by graceful folk-dancing, thus resulting in a bigger football squad and a bigger and a better May Fete.
Dillon high school girls were entertained with dancing Saturday afternoon, April 29, by the college women. Among other things they learned why some boys came to Normal even without actual academic assurances.
At a student election May 3, a financial stimulant, under the direction of "Doc" Kakuske, was administered to men’s athletics. Though the vote for the student dole was not exactly a close shave, it should result in a crop of first down.
Returning from a scout hike, the girls repaired for bed and retired to "Recv hall to enjoy a colorful party of the pajama variety, so we're told.
The "M” Club and W. A. A. effected a merger which resulted in an attack upon the "M" May 8 in a very business-like manner. And was her
Page 118face improved! Those co-eds apply the broom and paint with a truly Mae West result.
Upon returning from Butte Monday, certain members of the Chinook staff heard about the pageantry staged by the normal's proposing sorority. A good time was had by all. Although the dance started on time, the "Best” girl there crashed the gate with a late "Comer.”
The crowning event of the W. A. A. and also the blessed event of the coronation of the queen happened May 18. May Fete resulting from contract, combination, and coercion is the finest example of entertainment in quality and quantity, Although, having forgotten the election, one is always disturbed at seeing his queen not crowned.
Rivaling the productions of the "all American butlers,” the senior play climaxed the year’s dramatic events— at least those of the stage. The royalty was dispensed with as a concession on the French war debt.
As proof of their versatility the junior class staged a prom June 2 which even rivaled the success of "this here book."
By June 8 the final efforts to be remembered pleasantly, financially, or otherwise have been made by organizations, instructors, and boarding-houses. Final exams and picnics alike, in one respect, are over. In an autographic interval the seniors appear under cap and gown, each to receive a sheepskin testimonial of his potential pedagogical ability.
If a school is not his immediate reward, the senior should remember that wool is on a rising market. It seems that the utility of a diploma could be increased by the adoption of a sleeve-style sheepskin.
See you in September!

We believe the 1934 Chinook will be classed with previous books which have been set aside as the best. We are proud of the part we have had in its production for it reflects the same care and results that go with all jobs, no matter how small, that are done in our office. This Chinook, however, is not classed as a job " but rather as a pleasant experience, due to the fine cooperation of the staff and sponsor.
