The Junior Class of Montana State Normal College Dillon, Montana
.Another school year is completed—a year of experiences that we can never again enjoy as realities. For those returning to M. S. N. C. there may he new joys that may equal or even surpass those of this present year; for those leaving, these joys may be experienced again only through memories. By everyone the pleasure of this year will be fondly recollected. That these treasured reminiscences may be kept more vivid and lasting, the Staff presents the 1940 Chinook.DEDICATION
In dedicating this annual we honor one who has served the Montana State Normal College for several years. Her services as a teacher in the College and as a supervisor in the primary training school have been characterized by faithfulness, dignity, helpfulness, and friendliness. We take pleasure in presenting this book to Miss Elizabeth Shotwell.Hn toemorfam

Nineteen Forty? Oh, yes. That was the year when we got so much done. We had been living a long, long time—about twenty years, most of us, and never had managed to become Normal College graduates. Not even once. And then, it happened. It was all over so quickly and we were teaching school. Yes, actually teaching and getting paid for it. While all this was occurring we got our names and pictures in the Chinook. See how serious we look? Well, we were serious. Or mischievous? May be we were. Anyhow the man who looks out from the little office with five big windows wants us to keep on looking serious and more or less mischievous. He would look the same way if he could. He wishes the Chinook and all Chinookers success with this interestingly serious and mischievous world.
SHELDON E. DAVIS.The Class of 1940, at graduation, will view the future with hopes and fears. May what you have learned at Montana State Normal College enable you steadily to substantiate your hopes and resolutely surmount your fears.
H. H. SWAIN, Executive Secretary of the Greater University.DEAN'S MESSAGE
"The best is yet to be.” urges us ever toward the future, but we should well recognize that a worthy destiny depends upon existing efforts. Our service of today builds our college of the future. Personality grows by giving service—strange paradox—the more one gives the more one has. Thus in planning for the future as students, alumni and faculty, let us plan with courage and vision while never losing sight of today; for in the words of a famous Spanish proverb, "He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him.”

About the Seniors
The Senior Class of this year is the larqest that M. S. N. C. has had for several years.
Seniors spend much of their time in serious professional work in preparation for going out to teach. In the spring quarter they are at work, making application credentials. The last few weeks of the quarter finds them particularly busy with the commencement play and in preparation for graduation events. The seniors are honored before their departure from M. S-N. C. by the Junior Prom, the last important social event of the school year.
Officers of the 1940 class are Jess Whitney, president; Eugene Riordan, vice-president; Helen Gibb, secretary and treasurer. Mr. Paul Anderson is the faculty sponsor.

Freshmen may indeed be regarded as the most fortunate class in college, as they have four years of college life to look forward to, instead of three, two, or one.
The class of this year participated in many activities with enthusiasm. In the autumn the freshmen presented their annual informal "Freshman Frolic" dance. At Vodvil Night they presented Kay Kayser's "That's Right You’re Wrong." a cleverly arranged radio impersonation, which won third place.
Officers of the Freshman class were Howard Morse, president; Billie Linton, vice-president; Sylvia Nelson, secretary-treasurer.
Forty-fiveStanding: Andrew Pickolick, Howard Mailey. Professor Jordan, coach. Sitting: Claribel Houchen, Kolti-rt Holloran. William Tower. Virginia Hudson.
Representing M. S. N- C. in the 1940 debates was a squad of six: Robert Holloran, Claribel Houchen, Virginia Hudson, Howard Mailey, Andrew Pickolick, and William Tower. Professor Rush Jordan coached the teams.
The question this year was, "Resolved: That the United States should follow a policy of strict isolation (economic and military) toward all nations outside the Western Hemisphere engaged in armed international or civil conflicts." On February 15, the women's team composed of Virginia Hudson and Claribel Houchen in upholding the negative lost the decision to the women's team of the School of Mines at Butte. No decision was given at the University-Normal College women's debate held March 1, at Missoula.
The men's team composed of Andrew Pickolick, Howard Mailey, Bill Tower, and Bob Holloran defended the affirmative in a parliamentary debate with the School of Mines held here, February 26. The men's team climaxed a successful season by gaining a two-to-one decision in arguing the negative over Eastern Montana Normal at Billings, March 11.
Students who take part in intercollegiate debates are awarded a script "M".

Kappa Zeta Nu
Kappa Zeta Nu. one of the oldest clubs on the campus, was organized in 1905 for women who have completed two consecutive quarters of work at the Montana State Normal College, and who have maintained a "C average. This organization has always tried to further social and cultural interests of its members.
During the year the club holds teas, formal and informal dances, and a dinner or breakfast.
The officers this year are Desta Fisher, president; Alma Johansen, vice-president; Florence McBain, secretary; and Dorothy F.ossland, treasurer, with Mrs. Helen Davis Luebben and Miss Rachel Smith, as sponsors.
The pep organization of M. S. N. C.. the Kampus Kadets, brought more pep than ever to our campus sports this year. Initiates of the autumn quarter were introduced with a bang at football games.
During basketball season the Kampus Kadets presented many new drill formations worked out by President Mildred Harrington, assisted by Miss Georgia Mathews, K. K. sponsor, and Miss Marjorie Hamer. The cheer leaders, Marjorie Decker and Madalyn McDonnell, led many cheers which were followed enthusiastically by the cheering section.
Organized in 1932, the Kampus Kadets give as requirements for membership: scholarship, sportsmanship, and loyalty to M. S. N. C.

Entertainments given at the Residence Hall are generally arranged by the House Council. This year the group not only planned the Rec Hall dances and Valentine Varsity, but also gave other entertainments for the girls. They also assisted in formulating new rules for dormitory home-life and gave their support and cooperation to the Dean of Women and Social Director.
Representatives of each floor are elected for the period of one year. Those representing the various floors this year are Lillian Presbitero. Viola Sullivan, Lorraine Reiter, and Hope Williamson.
The officers are: Madalyn McDonnell, president; Beth Harwood, vice-president; and Ruby MacLean, secretary-treasurer.

For seven years a popular club on the campus, the Art Club continues to uphold the high standards set by the eight charter members.
As it is not the custom to run school organizations during the summer term, the 1939 summer students had to "vote in'' the Art Club. They devoted most of their time to furnishing and decorating the Palette, which is their cabin near Snowline. They made new furniture which they painted green and orange, stenciled drapes for the windows, and made a block-printed tile.
The Palette is an ideal place for Sunday outings for the group.
As a permanent project of the Art Club, the Gift Shop was opened again. Most of the articles sold, including bulldog pins, stationery, Christmas cards, beadwork, calendars, and framed water color pictures are made by club members.
Officers of the club are Rom Wiles, president; Ann Evans, vice-president; Alberta Sparlin, secretary; Vernon Vandeberg, treasurer. The sponsor is Mrs. Mary Baker Emerick. Honorary members are O. K. Moe and Mrs W. G. Bierrum.
Pa re FiftyThe Montanomal
The weekly paper of the Montana State Normal College. "The Montanomal,'' is edited by the journalism class under the supervision of Miss Genevieve Albertson.

William Monger was sports editor, and John Combes, Juanita Hieronymus. Joyce Lyall, Helen McGovern, Pauline Obach, Farnum Reed, and Edgar Schultz were reporters.
During the winter quarter Juanita Hieronymus was editor, with Farnum Reed and John Combes as assistant editors, and Desta Fisher and Swen Larsen as business managers. Reporters were Wyman Dupuis, Ronald Bassett, Lorine Johnson, Dorothy Lee Shelton, Grace Malinak, Dorothy Rock, Claribel Houchen, Cicely Piatt, and Alice Cameron.

Ronald Bassett, Robert Frost, and Alberta Gould were on the editorial committee. Reporters were Marguerite Cassidy, Mary Deegan, Dorothy Hagler. Raymond Schultz, and Doris Swanke.1
BOOSTER CLUB OFFICERS Alma Johansen, Hope Williamson, Howard Mailey, Francis Weic®r, Ward Smith

"Professor Quiz" presented by the Sophomore class was the winning stunt at the annual vodvil, "Follies of 1940," held during the winter quarter.
The product, Schnitzelbaum Snoods, was well advertised by Robert Gregg, the announcer, and by Ruby MacLean and Howard Keel, who gave testimonials and ”true-to-life" skits. A male quartet composed of Jack Ma-hood, Douglas Vagg, Henry Veltkamp, and James Veltkamp, sang the advertising song at the beginning and end of the program. As an added attraction Jack Mahood sang a tenor solo. "Without a Song."
Answers to the questions of the Professor, Andrew Pickolick, brought many laughs. The students were Marjorie Decker, Dorothy Hagler, Ada Kolokotrones, Swen Larsen, Myrthel Nelson, and Dan Walker. The audience was informed of the proper times to applaud and remain silent with flash cards produced by Robert Frost.

The Gargoyle Club, one of the most active organizations on the campus, has for its purpose the promotion of dramatic activities at Montana State Normal College.
Candidates must complete successful acting tryouts, and must show their ability in the stage or business department. Within the club is a higher organization, the Jeweled Masque, which is the reward for those who give exceptional service. In the autumn quarter Edward Cebull was

Tovarich. a four-act Russian comedy by Jacques Deval, was presented by the Gargoyle Club. February 23.
The story of Tovarich (Russian for "comrade ") concerns a Grand Duchess and her husband, an ex-prince and General of Cavalry in the days of the Czar. They fled from Russia to France on the eve of the Russian Revolution. In the Bank of France was 4,000.000,000 francs which the Czar had entrusted to Prince Mikail Alexandrovitch Ouratietf. The prince would rather die than take any of the money for his own use, and Grand Duchess Titiana Petrovna was willing to share any fate with him. Their experiences as maid and butler in the home of a Paris banker, in trying to take care of the money, and at the same time in trying not to be recognized, make an interesting and humorous plot.
In the cast were Vincent Curry. Myrthel Nelson, Clarence Brammer, Ruby MacLean, Robert Gregg, Dorothy Anne Davis. Andrew Pickolick, Isabelle Oxley, Dan Walker, Maurice Hickey. Florence McBain, Rosamond King. Elizabeth Kingston. Howard Morse, and Howard Keel.

We are happy to have another organization added to our list of activities this year. Because of a group of interested, musically-minded students who cooperated splendidly during the winter quarter, the Pep Band functioned on many occasions.
The band was organized during the fall quarter by Mr. Clair. After Mr. Clair left to do graduate work at the University of Minnesota, Ward Smith was appointed the new director of the group. To him we give much credit for his ability as a director, his cooperation, and his ability in handling the successful performances.
Besides appearing in assembly programs, the Pep Band played at every basketball game and added the final touch to every exciting game.

We congratulate the quartet on its success and popularity.
Page Slxiy-oneLeCercle Francais
Le Cercle Francais, more generally known as the French Clut, was organized in 1931 to promote interest in the French language. Anyone who is especially interested in, and has some knowledge of, the French language is welcome to join the club, which meets on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.
Addresses by outside speakers, games, songs, and various social events—all contribute to make the meetings of interest and value to the members. It has been the custom for the club to have an annual picnic which is usually held in the spring. During the winter quarter the club is entertained at the home of its sponsor, Mrs. Luebben. These are two of the social highlights of the year for the members of this organization.
Le Cercle Francais is an active club, although not one of the best known on the campus. Several times it has produced a stunt for the annual Vodvil night. This year the stunt was a dramatization of "The Three Bears" while the well-known story was being read in French. The lighting, costumes, and properties made this stunt effective.
The officers of the Le Cercle Francais this year are Florence McBain, president; Carl Johansen, vice-president; and Marjorie Decker, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Helen Davis Luebben is the sponsor.

The "M" Club is an organization of men who, through their athletic and scholastic ability, earned the right to wear the "M,” the college emblem.
Sponsored by Coach Ray Gallant, the organization is characterized by its service in sportsmanship on both the field and the campus. During past years this organization has done a great deal to make athletics of greater value to participants and more enjoyable to spectators. To be a member of this group is a marked distinction.
During the year the "M" Club sponsored an interclass basketball tournament, two Rec Hall dances, "M" Day. and the annual formal, one of the finest dances of the year.
Each year the club tries to leave something of athletic interest and value to the college. In the past it has left the scoreboard, reserved seating system, the athletic accounting system, and a trophy case.
May we recommend the ”M" Club to any Normal College man who excels in athletics?
Officers of the club are: Lawrence Buckley, president; Joe Rife, vice-president; and Francis Weger, secretary-treasurer.

May Queen and Attendants
By vote of the students at M. S. N. C. Dorothy Anne Davis was elected 1940 May Queen. Her attendants were Mildred Harrington, Desta Fisher, Madalyn McDonnell and Ruby MacLean.
With an animated fairy land scene as a background, the 1940 May Fete was presented on May 10 to a large and appreciative audience.
The theme of the event, "Fairy Tales" was carried out perfectly in one of the most colorful and amusing spring festivals ever seen on the campus. The May Queen in her role as Queen of Fairy Tale Land reigned supreme over her subjects.
Each scene portrayed in dance the characters of the stories that are so well loved by children and adults alike. Scores of training school pupils delighted the audience with their interpretations of Little Black Sambo, the Tar Baby, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Three Little Pigs, and many other characterizations. College students obligingly transformed themselves into Puss in Boots, the Ugly Duckling, Alice in Wonderland, Pinnochio, the Three Bears, and Cinderella.
All of the costumes for the May Fete were made by members of the W. A. A. The Art Club constructed and painted the scenery, and the Chanticleers helped with the advertising and publicity. The Little Symphony Orchestra appeared on the program.
Miss Marjorie Hamer, sponsor of the Women's Athletic Association, was the director of the May Fete. The general chairman was Rose Con-well, W. A. A. president. Chairmen of Committees were: program, Betty Craver; costume, Doris Spoonemore; advertising, Viola Sullivan; properties, Lorine Johnson; scenery, Jeanne Covalt; and election, Ada Kolokotrones.

Graduating classes of 1939 presented for their Commencement play, "You Can't Take It With You," a three-act comedy by George Kaufman and Moss Hart.
The scene was laid in the home of Martin Vanderhof in New York City. "Grandpa” Vanderhof. a man of leisure who believed in having some fun in life, presented a new philosophy of life to Mr. Kirby, a rich business man so busy trying to make more money that he couldn't find time to enjoy life. This new philosophy in the end led to Mr. Kirby's consent to the engagement of his son. Tony, to Alice Sycamore, the granddaughter.

The play was directed by Miss Myrtle Savidge.BOOK TWO Athletics
Through the efforts and guidance of Coach Ray Gallant the men's athletic department enjoyed another complete athletic program. By his initiative he created a high spirit of competitive interest in athletic games in which a large number cf men participated. This was Coach Gallant's second year a! M. S. N. C.
After a lapse of three years, football was added to the Normal College activities and commanded a great deal of attention. Football should be available for men students in a Normal College, as it is the foundation for coaching duties. Everyone concerned was enthusiastic over the fact that M. S. N. C. men would again play one of America's favorite games. Many other small schools all over the country had found it necessary to abandon football because of a lack of funds; therefore we were thankful that we were able to resume gridiron play again this year.
Thirty men reported for practice to Coach Ray Gallant Wednesday, September 27, to begin training for the 1939 gridiron schedule. With a limited number of experienced men, Coach Gallant had a huge task in rounding out the light and green sa.uad. Many had

never before played eleven-man football, but had a little experience in six-man play. Injuries played a major role in hindering the progress of the Bulldogs.
M. S. N. C. lost an evenly fought game to last year's co-cham-pionship club, the Polytechnic Crusaders of Billings, here Saturday, October 21, to the tune of 7 to 0. The Bulldogs made a creditable showing against this heavier and more experienced team, but were unable to score. The next week the Bulldogs journeyed to Helena where they were defeated by Carroll College—19 to 2, in a night game. Presenting one of the hardest charging backfields in years. Carroll drove consistently through the Normal line for nearly all their yardage. Riordan and Johnson, Normal tackles, played a wonderful game despite the final score. Buckley and Dupuis were the ground gainers for the Bulldogs. In the last game of the season the Butte School of Mines team scored a 26 to 0 victory over the Bulldogs at Butte, Saturday, November 4. Evenly matched in the first half, the Mines Orediggers were held to a 0 to 0 count. However, in the second half the Mines squad took advantage of the sluggish playing of the Bulldogs and scored four touchdowns to run away with the ball game. Dupuis, playing with an arm injury, turned in a spectacular game both offensively and defensively for the Bulldogs.
Ed is a big man, and he took up a good deal of space in the center of the line. He was unable to come out for practice until late in the season; so he did not get into every game, but played well when he was in there.
Larry was the general and spark plug of the team. Despite his small size he was a sure tackier, as he held down the safety position. Buckley carried the ball around end for yardage nearly every time he tried. Small and fast, he played a splendid brand of ball all season. Larry ended his football career by graduation.
Riordan is a rugged type of player, and he was in there pitching all the time. 'Tat" really played to win. A good blocker and sure tackier, he played the entire game of each contest along with Johnson. These two stellar tackles were the mainstays in the line. Riordan will be lost to the team through graduation.
1‘aRe Eluhty-oneOTHER TEAM MEMBERS
Ends Robert O'Brien and Joe Rife played heads-up ball at the wing positions. "O'B" played all season with a painful shoulder injury but turned in many fine performances. Rife displayed much ability as a pass receiver.
Tackles To William Johnson goes the title of iron man, playing as he did every minute of each game. He was always in there pitching and giving all he had.
Guards Newlon and Tait were used to pull out of the line to run interference for the ball carrier, and always gave a good account of themselves.
Center Bruce Watters played this important position. After playing good ball all season, he sustained a shoulder injury in the last game. He was replaced by Jim Womack, a good scrappy player.
Backs Wyman Dupuis also played with an injury. “Duke" carried a splint on one arm all season, but he was a demon on wheels, both offensively and defensively from his half-back post. Jess I-aBuff and Charles Sekulich alternated at the other half-back post. LaBuff received a shoulder injury early in the season, but
made many yards for the team. Sekulich is a hard-running back,
and he fired many long heaves that landed in an end's arms for substantial gains. William Monger started the season as fullback, but was lost to the team as a result of a serious shoulder
injury received in the first game. He hit the line for various gains
in the Poly game and played good ball in backing up the line. Francis Weger was shifted from his guard position to full-back when Bill was injured. Weger gained much of the yardage on line bucks for the Bulldogs.
Others who did not see much action, but were faithful in practice are: Tuomi, Bums, H. Veltkamp, J. Veltkamp, Mailey, Kingery, Johansen, Drabbs, R. Schultz, Copenhaver, and Mountjoy.
November 22. Coach Gallant issued a call for basketball. Out of the thirty-eight men that turned out for practice, there was only one missing from last year's varsity. The coach had trouble in reducing his squad, as he had nine lettermen and several outstanding newcomers from which to make a selection.
The conference basketball season was not too successful, the Bulldogs winning five out of the fifteen games played. Although the Bulldogs lacked height, they were one of the best passing teams in the conference and were never defeated until the final gun. They showed great improvement as the season progressed and will be a real threat for next season's competition. Eleven members were picked by the coach for positions. He then set to work to find his best combination, which was no easy problem.
Two non-conference games were played by the Bulldogs. Immediately after the Christmas holidays the Bulldogs tangled with with the Ricks College Vikings from Rexburg, Idaho. This was the first game of the season for the Bulldogs, and due to lack of practice they were defeated 64-25. The second non-conference game was played with the much superior City of David Aces, who won by a score of 56 to 40.
The Bulldogs returned home to play seven successive games on the home court. The first was lost to Carroll College of Helena. The following week the Bulldogs opened up to play their best against Eastern Montana Normal, and found them easy victims in two games. At this stage in the conference race the Normal College had won three contests and dropped the same number. The Northern Lights from Havre were the next to meet the Bulldogs and defeated them in two close games. The following week the Normal College squad found themselves again, and triumphed over the School of Mines in a heated contest. After a day's rest the squad played the Poly on even terms only to lose in the closing minutes of the game.
Page Klghty-threeThe Bulldogs in their northern trip defeated Northern Montana College, and then returned to Helena where they dropped two games to a much improved Carroll team. In the final two games of the season, the Bulldogs dropped two to the Mines, one in Butte and one in Dillon.
Although the Bulldogs were fifth in the conference race, they upset the standings in the conference among the leaders and won respect from their opponents.
Coach Gallant picked a captain for each game.
This was Frank's last season with the Bulldogs. He will be sorely missed next season, as he was the team's high scorer this season. Frank played a very strong defensive game as well as an offensive. His two-handed long shots accounted for many of the Bulldogs' points this season. This was Frank's third year with the Bulldogs, and he is to be congratulated for his fine performances.
''Duke'' was one of the most clever ball handlers in the conference. His clever passing accounted for many of the set-ups received by his team mates. This was his second year with the Bulldogs, and he will be back to help Normal "win 'em" next year.
Womack, former Ennis High star, was a great help to the Bulldogs at the center position. Jim was known for his fine spirit and aggressiveness in the games. He will be back next season to bolster up the Bulldog line-up.
Don is a hard-playing, smooth-passing forward. He was one of the most cool players on the squad. He will be back next season.
Jess, a sophomore, played a fast aggressive game and therefore won himself a place on the varsity squad. He came to M. S. N. C. from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon.
Playing his third year with the Bulldogs, Joe proved himself to be a valuable man. He was very dangerous on set shots, scoring five out of five in one game.
This was Al's first season with the Bulldogs. He broke into the regular line-up by the latter part of the season. He was exceptionally good in picking rebounds off the backboard.
Bayerd, playing his second year for the Bulldogs, showed much improvement over last year. He has a very effective one-handed shot which accounted for many of the Normal's baskets.
Page Elghty-nlxJOHN COMBES
Playing his second year for the Bulldogs, John filled in very ably as a reserve and showed some fine basketball during the season.
Weikel sparked the Teachers in the pinches. When hot, Luther was very hard to stop. We hope he will be back next year.
Francis was the other senior on the varsity squad. He was a very dangerous man under the basket and contributed a good portion of the points in every game he played. Playing his third and last year with the Bulldogs, Francis is one who will be missed next season.

The lineup of the ”B" squad consists of players unable to meet the minimum requirements necessary for "A" squad members. During the season several "B" squad members kept the varsity on their toes to keep their positions.
The Pups engaged in four games besides furnishing some strong competition for the varsity in several tussels. They split a pair of games with the Mines "B" squad, winning by a score of 37 to 17 and losing by a margin of 2 points, 42 to 44 in Butte. Two games were played with the Dillon Independents and after winning the first game by 12 points, the Pups dropped the second one by 3 points. The enthusiasm displayed by the Bullpups keeps the varsity members alert to hold their positions.
rage Eighty-eightInter-Class Basketball
Class teams engaged in their inter-class championship struggle during the autumn quarter with no team emerging as champion. In the first tournament, a round robin affair, there were four teams in competition.
In the opening game of the tournament, the Sophomore A's defeated the Freshmen, and in the second game the Upperclassmen defeated the Sophomore B s. In the second round the Freshmen defeated the Sophomore B's, and the Upperclassmen defeated the Sophomore A's. In the third round the Freshmen defeated the Upperclassmen and the Sophomore A's defeated the Sophomore B’s. This tournament wound up with a tie between the Freshmen, Sophomore A's, and the Upperclassmen, each losing one game.
In the playoff during the winter quarter the Upperclassmen emerged victorious over both the Freshmen and the Sophomores. The Sophomores placed second by defeating the Freshmen.
Approximately fifty men participated in the tournament, from which Coach Gallant picked his "A" squad.
Left 10 Right: Coach Gallant, Morris Homme, Frank Davison. Bob Hamilton, Henry Veltkamp, Ray Schultz.
The track season of 1939 was a successful one for the Normal College. The Bulldogs entered three meets. The first one was the Bozeman Relays. Two new state records were set at this meet by Normal College representatives. Davison won the javelin toss for a new record of 180 feet, seven inches. Hamilton tied with Seyler of the University in the high jump for first place and a new record at 6 feet 5 s inches. He also tied with Wilson of Poly for second place in the broad jump.

MONTANA STATE NORMAL COLLEGE
MISS MARJORIE HAMER DirectorHigh School Play Day
The Women's Athletic Association sponsored a high-school-play-day, April 27, the first one in three years. About one hundred and fifty girls and thirty chaperones came to the Normal College for the event. The residence hall girls shared their rooms with the visitors. The visitors had some of their meals in the dining rooms of the residence halls, while others were had out of doors on picnics.
The high school girls as well as the M. S. N. C. girls participated in numerous sports on the campus, such as badminton, tennis, table tennis, horse shoes, and archery. The idea behind play day was not competition between schools; members of different groups were on the same teams.
Saturday was spent at Torrey Lodge, the W. A. A. cabin, where out-of-door sports were featured. The visitors as well as the college girls had an excellent time, and the association hopes to make play day an annual event.
Coach Ray Gallant held a class in life saving as preliminary work for students who wished to take the water safety examination to be given by a field supervisor from April 29 to May 4. It was a review to some students and a preparation to others.
The students who took the review weie: Betty Craver, Mildred Harrington, Bill Newlon, and Fred Rife.
New students who signed up were: Loretta Anderson,
Grace Malinak, Madalyn McDonnell, Leota Meyers. Isabelle Oxley, Helen Procknow, Lida Shaffner, Valaree Sheldon, Doris Spoonemore, Cora Belle Trask, Elmer Tuomi, and Don Wheat.
