J- URING the past three years an important ''something” was missing from the traditional activities of M. S. N. C.; that "something" was the ever popular and always treasured Chinook. This year, following the war-aftermath pattern of revision and revival in effect the wide world over, we take great pride in bringing to life again, this—the annual of the State Normal College.
To those of you who have been here before, this number will be welcomed as an old friend. To those new on the campus, we hope it will make each one feel like a living part of a proud and useful institution. And for all of us— faculty and students—may it become a fountain of memories to be sought after eagerly whenever we wish to reminisce over the events of this pleasant year.
It is with this sincere wish that the staff proudly presents the 1947 Chinook.
w E PAY tribute in this book to one who has served the Normal College for many years. Cooperative faculty colleague, faithful friend and advisor, loyal college booster—these phrases describe but mildly the characteristics of the man we have chosen to honor through this dedication.
Throughout his long years of service on the Normal College faculty, he has held a place in the affection of the students. Few of us who have earned credits in the science department will ever want to forget the sense of fairness, the patient understanding, and the cooperation which were so characteristic of his classes. It is a certainty that those of us who go out into the teaching profession will benefit greatly from the association we have had with him.
We are proud, then, to present the 1947 Chinook to our College Vice President and Professor of Science—J. Ford McBain.

Commemorating Our Fiftieth Commencement
President Rush Jordan
Welcomo back to the campus. 1947 Chinook, for you too have been away. Welcome back along with the G. I.'s And others who have been away.
The campus was lonely without you, but Now all will be again as it was before. The record of fifty years is now resumed. The traditions are restored.
A new year has dawned for us all An after-the-war year of peace and Good fellowship,
A new year of opportunity.
A new year of hope and accomplishment. Record these things, yearbook of 1947. Keep the record, students of M. S. N. C. This is a year to remember.
(6)Dr. Sheldon E. Davis, President Emeritus
J1 ROM the land of Don't Forget comes the 1947 Chinook, joining the long shelf of yesterday-tomorrow. You who have made and lived this worthy volume will be fondly saying in 1975, "Has it been that long since our bunch play-worked on this book? How much time we had then! Not one of us looks worried or in a hurry. Is that the way I looked?"
"No, the pictures played us false. I remember how short the time was. If we needed an hour, we had a minute. Maybe I did not see myself, but I remember how some of you looked—sometimes. That peaceable posing staff used to fight like the 702,143 robins on the campus (census of 1940). How much the Chinook left out!"
Still, I like you, Old Book, and I hope the class of 1975 is as busy and unpeaceable as we were. What you leave out, pleasant memory supplies. On with the Chinook.

The Activity Committee members control the Activity fund and apportion the money as they see fit. They issue the tickets admitting students to assemblies, football and basketball games, Vodvil, The First Annual Concert Series and aid in financing the Go-day, M-day, Montanomal and several other school functions.
Their work receives little publicity, but it provides many hours of entertainment for every student. They have lined up several entertainment numbers for next year.
This Committee is made up of four students elected from the entire student body and four faculty members appointed by President Jordan.
WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
To promote and encourage participation in sports and to foster the highest ideals in social and character building activities are the purposes of the Women's Athletic Association, which numbers among its members those women who have completed a specified number of hours in major and minor sports, and who have maintained a "C" scholastic average.
A fall mixer for all women students, the traditional Christmas party, and a campfire social have been the outstanding social activities of the club. Weekend trips to Torrey Lodge, the W. A. A. cabin on Birch Creek, are included in their outing program. Service activities include ushering at basketball games, handling of concessions, sponsoring the Red Cross campaign, and the selling of M. S. N. C. stickers.
An Awards Assembly in April and an Awards Banquet in May honor those women who have earned numerals or letters. Another feature of the spring banquet is the installation of new officers.
W. A. A. is affiliated with the National Athletic Federation of College Women.
Catherine Roberts is the president of the organization this year. Other officers include Norma Walsh, vice president; Twilla Meyers, secretary; and Adeline Parisi, treasurer. Miss Elena Sliepcevich is the faculty sponsor.
(35)THE GARGOYLE CLUB
The Gargoyle Club, one of the most active organizations on the campus, founded in 1923, has for its purpose the promotion of dramatic activities at M. S. N. C.
The club work is divided into three departments: acting, stage, and business, so that members get valuable training in all phases of dramatics work.
Admittance to the club is gained only through ability and hard work. Students wishing to become Gargoyles are given tryouts by the tryout committee, and. if accepted, are pledged to the club after the required stage hours are completed. Within the club is a higher organization, the Jeweled Masque, to which those with exceptional ability may aspire. Beyond this honor is attainment of membership in the national honorary dramatics fraternity, Delta Psi Omega. At the present time. James Brockbank is the only Jeweled Masque member.
The Gargoyle three-act plays, one-act plays, and assembly programs form a pleasing variation for the Normal College calendar. The successful Broadway three-act play, "I Remember Mama,” by John Van Druten, was presented to a large receptive audience during the early part of May.
With an increase in membership, the club is undertaking numerous dramatic projects to be completed during the year 1947-1948. Miss Myrtle Savidge is the able and helpful guide of the Gargoyles.
Gargoyles - Three One-Act Plays
At an evening performance Monday, January 20. the Gargoyle Club and the tryouts for the club presented three one-act plays. The three plays and the casts of characters were as follows:
"Brothers in Arms” by Merrill Denison. Those taking part were George Adam, Junior Koontz, Myron Axe, and Marian Anhalt.
"The Florist Shop” by Winifred Hawkridge. Parts were taken by Edith Gibson, Donald Nye. William Spahr, Marian Anhalt, and James Brockbank.
"The Potboiler” by Alice Gertenberg. The cast included Bill Jolly, Fred Searle, Arlene Albro, Ilia Mae Sims, James Buckhouse, Helen Collins, and Donald Wallin.

(40)KAPPA ZETA NU
The oldest organization at Montana State Normal College is the campus sorority, Kappa Zeta Nu. Founded in 1905, it has been a source of social pleasure to many students over the years.
Two highlights of K. Z. N.'s social calendar for 1947 were "Kowboy Kapers," an informal, all-college dance, and a Valentine supper honoring its pledges.
Members are chosen for their outstanding qualities of scholarship, leadership, character, and a well-integrated personality.
K. Z. N. officers are Norma Walsh, president, and Helen McPherson, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Ralph McFadden is the club's sponsor.
A vital interest in the foreign relations of the United States is the only requirement necessary for membership in the Foreign Relations Club.
It is customary for the organization to bring in speakers other than the members of the club. At the close of each program the speaker is questioned by the members of the group, and an open discussion is held.
Speakers during the first and second semesters were as follows: Dr. Sheldon E. Davis. Bob Gregg, Payne Templeton, Eugene Savage, Albert Erickson, Mrs. Elena Horton, Bill Treglown, and E. D. Wagner.
Miss Margaret Madeen and Mr. Dexter Fee are co-sponsors of the club. Officers of the club are Phil Jones, president; George Adam, vice president; Francis Pettit, secretary-treasurer.
(41)THE ART CLUB
Under the able sponsorship of Mrs. Mary B. Emerick, the Art Club was one of the most active campus organizations in 1946 1947. It is the only campus organization to maintain a Loan and Scholarship Fund.
The Art Club has a membership composed of students who have an interest in art, many of whom are art majors. The members make articles for the Gift Shop maintained by the Art Club, and throughout the year sales are held in the main hall for the convenience of students. The club work is varied, including leather craft, block printing, textile stenciling, and numerous other projects. Among the large tasks of the Art Club was the construction of “Snowmen" programs for the “Winter Wonderland Ball" which was sponsored by the sophomore class.
At Christmas time, the club painted an original interpretation of the “Holy Family" on the tower windows in the art department. Floodlights behind the paintings and recorded Christmas Carols told the story of the first Christmas.
During February, Mrs. Emerick. Phyllis layne Davis, Mrs. Elena Horton. Marian Anhalt, and Earl Allen went to Deer Lodge to put on a program of art and music. The same program was repeated a week later for the Dillon Kiwanis Club.
At the annual Vodvil the Art Club won second place with their skit, "Character Caricatures" which featured large chalk drawings of campus personages. For the trip to Twin Bridges the club planned a special act which related to the locale.
Officers of the Art Club for 1946 1947 were Earl Allen, president; Rayburn Thompson, vice president (first semester); Dwight Billedeaux, vice president (second semester); Phyllis Jayne Davis, secretary; Betty Newlon, club treasurer (first semester); and Alice Knox, gift shop treasurer and club treasurer (second semester).
Kappa Pi, the oldest honorary art fraternity among colleges today, is represented in the Northwest by the Omicron Chapter at Montana State Normal College. This chapter was established June 10. 1937.
Members of Kappa Pi are selected for their ability and promise in the field of art. Mrs. Emerick, sponsor of the Omicron Chapter, pledged to membership three art majors this year. They are Elena Horton, Phyllis Jayne Davis, and Earl Allen.

MEN'S HOUSE COUNCIL
Standing: Ralph Bamaby. Sitting: Walter Daggett, John Vetter.
The Student Council is the organization that discusses the personal problems of students and acts as mediator between the students and faculty. This is the first year that a student council has been active on the campus. The group is comprised of the presidents of the various classes and the "GI" club, with a president chairman elected by the student body.
Major projects undertaken successfully this year by the council were the installation of a Snack Bar and the assumption of duties of the Booster Club for Vodvil night, ordinarily delegated to members of the Junior Class.
Members of the Student Council are: Ralph Barnaby, president; Craig Anderson, GI representative; Mary King, senior class representative; James Brockbank, junior class representative; Phil Jones, sophomore class representative; and Jack Davis, freshman class representative.
James Kurtz was senior class representative during the first semester.
MEN'S HOUSE COUNCIL
Another newly-formed organization at M. S. N. C. is the Men's House Council. Since men now live in the dormitory, three of their number were elected to have general supervision of the premises. Ralph Barnaby was elected president of the council, with Walter Daggett and John Vetter assisting him.
WOMEN'S HOUSE COUNCIL
The organization responsible for all activities, entertainments, rules, and privileges at the Women's Residence Halls is the House Council. This group is composed of the dean of women, the social director, and one student representative from each class who is elected by the women living at the dormitory.
Outstanding among the activities sponsored by the House Council this year were the Christmas party, the Valentine Varsity Formal, the "Coffee Hour" of mid-year test week, numerous dances in the Rec Hall, and several informal firesides.
Members of the 1946-1947 Council are: Betty Newlon, upper class representative; Rose Conwell, upper class representative; Rose Badovinatz, sophomore representative; Maxine Beck, freshman representative; Miss Elena Sliepcevich, social director; Miss Marjorie Hamer, dean of women; and Miss Georgia Mathews, dean of women after March 1.
Rose Conwell is president of the Women s House Council.CONCERT SERIES
The Student Activity sponsored the First Annual Concert Series in five outstanding musical performances during the year. The Annual Concert Series was inaugurated to bring some of the best musical talent to the college. This year they included two local artists, Ralph McFadden of the Normal College music department, and Brinton Jackson of the Beaverhead County High School. Because of the interest shown by the student body, the Activity committee decided to continue the concerts next year.
Performances for the year were:
Elizabeth Davis, soprano
Ralph McFadden, pianist; Brinton Jackson, baritone Janet Bush Opera Quartet Henri Temianka, violinist Francis Blaisdell Instrumental Trio
With the return of the veterans and major college sports at M. S. N. C., the "M" Club is once again on the campus. Earl Allen, "Cat" Thompson, and Jim Womack, returned lettermen, reorganized the "M” Club in February and initiated letter winners of the '46 football team, who were given M's.
New officers elected were Dale Dart, president; Francis Pettit, vice president; "Bud" Trask, secretary-treasurer; and Alfred Fidler, sergeant-at-arms.
Among the Club projects were programs for basketball games, dances, campus signs, and the "M" Club Interscholastic Basketball Tournament for which a gold cup was presented to the winning team, The Ramblers. A high spot of the athletic calendar was the Club Smoker which featured boxing, wrestling, and novelty acts.
Sponsor for the "M"' Club is Bill Straugh.

1947 VARSITY SQUAD
Left to Right: Standing—Jack Davis, Jack Rogan, John Vetter, Dale Tash, Dan Boka. Sitting—Lindy Estes. Bob Howard, Stan Johnson, Charles Deputy, Dale Dart.
Coach Straugh issued the first call for basketball November 5. and thirty eager candidates reported for the practice session. Basketball was not carried on during the war years at M. S. N. C., and the entire turnout did not include a former letterman. A few of the men were fresh out of high school while the majority were “not so long ago” service men, nearly all of whom had gained valuable experience playing on service teams at some time or another.
The competition for a varsity position was keen and rugged, and the lineup changed several times during the course of the season.
The Bulldogs opened their vigorous thirty-six game schedule against the Anaconda Boosters, an outstanding state independent ball club, November 22, and dropped a close contest 45-42. From here on out until the beginning of the conference schedule, the Bulldogs engaged in a series of games with other Montana teams and a number of Idaho teams in preparation for the fifteen conference tilts.
The Bulldogs started off their conference play in a fine fashion as they romped over the powerful Butte School of Mines, 67-53. Dick McGuire led the Bulldog attack with 19 points, and Bob Howard, a recently enrolled ex-GI, made his debut on the home court.
Journeying to Billings, the Bulldogs ran over hapless Billings Poly, 54-19. However, they lost two important tussles with Eastern Normal the next two nights.
Eastern Normal came to Dillon the following week and revenge was mighty sweet as the Bulldogs downed them, 50-36. Big Stan Johnson hooped 15 points for the home team.
The highly touted Northern Montana hoopsters were the next victims. 57-44. The boys in orange and black were rolling; the semester ended and Dick McGuire, who transferred to the School of Mines, and Thompson, who withdrew, were the only members lost from the team.
Poly again proved to be easy and the Normalites rolled over them by wide margins in a two game series. Poly possessed a smooth working ball club that just couldn't hit those game winning baskets.
A trip into the north country saw the Bulldogs defeat Northern twice, 61-41, and 46-38. The second game was close all the way until the determined Bulldogs opened up in the closing minutes. Chuck Deputy chalked up 16 points for scoring honors.
Tangling with the conference leaders, Carroll Saints, the next night, the tired Bulldogs were humbled 63-35. The effects of the long trip were evident as the Bulldogs started fast the first half but were unable to keep up the rigorous pace the entire game.
The conference race was coming to a close and the Bulldogs had remaining games with the leading Mines and Carroll.
With everything to gain, the Bulldogs traveled to Butte for a two game series with the Orediggers. Luck just wasn't with us. however, and we dropped both games. Bob Howard poured in 22 points in the second game for a stellar performance. George Aitken, former Bulldog ace, was the sparkplug for the Mines.
Carroll engaged the Bulldogs at the close of the season for an all-out fight for second place. The first game proved to be the thriller type. The Saints were leading 46-31 with nine minutes remaining when the Bulldogs came to life with a barrage of field goals and excellent defensive tactics to outlast the Saints, 62-60. This game will long be remembered by those who witnessed it. Stan Johnson clicked for 25 points, and Dale Dart scored 17 from his guard post.
Carroll came back the next night to spoil our final game of the season with a 60-47 win.
Thus we finished third in the conference behind the School of Mines and Carroll College and brought to a close a successful season.
As in former years, the coaches in the small college conference, with the exception of Billings Poly, met and chose members of the all-conference teams. We were the only college to place three men on the lineup.
The selections are as follows:
Forward Hunthausen Carroll
Forward Adams N. M. C.
Center Aitken Minos
Guard Marinovich Mines
Guard Reardon Carroll
Forward Howard M. S. N. C.

1. Coach William Straugh resumed his duties at M. S. N. C. after 39 months in the Naval Air Corps. He came here in 1940, and in three seasons of conference play his teams have won 33 games and dropped 12. He coached a championship team in 1941.
2. Charles Deputy, Dillon, was a standout forward who placed on the allconference team. "Chuck" possesses a neat left-hand hook shot plus an amazing ability to get high rebounds.
3. Stan Johnson, Hot Springs, also known as ' Big Stan." is 6 feet 7 inches tall, and played a whale of a game at center. He led the Bulldogs in conference scoring, averaging 11 points per game.
4. Danny Boka, Dillon, was the shortest man on the squad and one of the fastest. His fast deceptive playing always speeded the game up.
5. Dale Dart. Dillon, also placed on the all-conference team at guard. He is a great offensive threat and can control the backboard with ability.
6. Dale Tash, Dillon, played either forward or guard depending upon the situation. His trick shots were a pleasure to watch.
7. Lindy Estes, Ennis, was a very capable guard with a fine natural style. Watch him go in future years.
8. Bob Howard, Browning, started playing ball at the beginning of the conference schedule and came a long way to cop a forward position on the all-conference selections. His combination of speed and height is unbeatable.
9. Jack Davis, Dillon, was another "shorty'' who can move very fast and stymie opponents who fail to watch him closely.
10. John Vetter, Ennis, a big aggressive center who was always dependable, gave his best.
11. Jack Rogan, Dillon, joined the team late in the season and gave a good account of himself in the remaining games.
12. Dick McGuire, Ennis, a stellar athlete for the Bulldogs, transferred to the School of Mines at the semester's end to continue his engineering studies. Our loss was their gain.

Returning to the gridiron after a war-time lapse of five years, the Bulldogs played a series of games with the reserves of the larger universities, since we were the only member of the small college conference to field a team.
Rayburn "Cat” Thompson, captain of this year's team, and Earl Allen were the only returning lettermen of former years; the other members of the squad were getting in their first year of collegiate football.
After a short practice session of nine days, the green Bulldogs journeyed to Bozeman, October 5, to tangle with the Montana State Reserves in their first clash of the season. A miserable snow flurry during game time put the field in a sorry state which seriously hampered the speedy Bulldogs' running and passing attack, while working to the advantage of their heavier opponents who scored a 34-0 win.
The second encounter of the season saw the Bulldogs in action under the lights on the home field against the Montana University JayVees on October 18. The JayVees had won over the Montana State Reserves and regarded the plucky Bulldogs all too lightly, but finally won the hard fought contest 18-6.
Our team displayed their vaunted passing attack for long gains deep into enemy territory only to be stopped short of the goal line time and again. McDonald uncorked a short pass to Kamps for our lone tally.
The Montana State Reserves came to Dillon for a return game October 25, and received somewhat of a shock as they barely edged the Bulldogs, 7-5. Undaunted by the result of their earlier encounter with the Reserves, the Bulldogs tore into them with savage fury. A safety in the opening minute of play gave us a 2-0 lead which the boys in orange and black clung to tenaciously until a bad break in the third period. An alert Bobkitten back. Bill McMannis, former Bulldog, snagged a Bulldog pass and streaked one hundred yards down the sideline to score. The Bulldogs came back strong and played the remainder of the game in the Reserve territory, but were unable to score. McDonald drop-kicked a field goal in the closing minutes of play.
In the last game of the 1946 season the Bulldogs tasted victory as they downed the rugged Idaho Southern Branch Reserves 13-7. Mack scored the first Bulldog touchdown on a forty yard jaunt and McDonald dropkicked the conversion. McDonald scored again on a line play in the first quarter for our 13 points and margin of victory. Idaho scored in the second period and the second half saw the Bulldogs play a great game of ball as they protected their lead.
Francis Pettit of Dillon was elected captain for next year.
The following men saw their share of action and earned letters for the 1946 season: Bob Mack, Butte; Rayburn Thompson, Dillon; Dick McGuire, Ennis; Dale Dart, Dillon; Dwight Billedeaux, Browning; Alfred Fidler, Dillon; Jack Rogan, Dillon; Francis Pettit, Dillon; Jack McDonald, Butte; Dale Tash, Dillon; Danny Boka, Dillon; Ralph Bamaby, Wibaux; Marvin Trask, Deer Lodge; Lindy Estes, Ennis; Jack Davis, Dillon; Chuck Deputy, Dillon; Earl Allen, Missoula; Noel Hubber, Butte; Ronald Marquis, Hot Springs; John Vetter, Ennis; Frank Vetter, Ennis; James Buckhouse, Missoula, manager; Earl Barlow, Browning, manager.
As the Chinook goes to press, we find the Bulldogs working out in baseball and track. New baseball uniforms are on the way and a sharp-looking crew will represent M. S. N. C. at the games.
A baseball and track meet is scheduled at Billings. May 16 and 17. In addition we may have a couple of tennis stars to enter. The Bulldogs copped the small college conference track and field meet held at Helena in 1941 and will be in there to retain the championship.
"M" CLUB BASKETBALL TOURNEY
The "M" club is again in full swing. The club carried out a number of activities during the past year and deserve a word of praise for their worthwhile efforts. They sponsored numerous social events and an eight-team basketball tourney. The teams came from the college and high school with the Ramblers, a college team, taking first place honors and a handsome trophy. The tournament will be a yearly event from now on.
Coach Straugh has already completed a tentative football schedule with the prospect of one or two more tilts to be added. The feature of the season may be a plane trip to Edmonton, Alberta, where the Bulldogs will tangle with the University of Alberta, October 18.
Conference games are October 4, Billings Poly at Billings; October 11, Eastern Normal at Dillon; October 24, School of Mines at Dillon; November 1. Carroll College at Helena.

"Sport night" is scheduled for Monday of each week with seasonal sports offered to all college women who wish to participate. Volleyball, basketball, table tennis, badminton, and softball are featured during the year.
These Monday night activities offer the women ample opportunity to garner the points necessary for their entrance into W. A. A. as well as providing healthy recreation.
Tournaments are held in each sport, and through this medium those taking part become eligible for class numerals or a college letter.
Women who were awarded the coveted Winged M for five seasons of participation in athletics plus winning a position on three major teams were Rose Badovinatz, Helen McPherson, Twilla Meyers, Catherine Roberts, Adeline Parisi, and Norma Walsh. Betty Newlon and Rose Conwell are also Winged M members.
The local Women’s Athletic Association was hostoss during the second week in May to the annual Quadrangle college Play Day.
The State University at Missoula, the State College at Bozeman, the Eastern Montana Normal School at Billings, and the State Normal College at Dillon wore each represented by ten women.
A full two-day program was planned by the M. S. N. C. coeds to entertain their guests. A splash party at the plunge, a waffle supper, a lunch and outdoor sports program at Torroy Lodge, a banquet at Pipe Organ Lodge, and an all-school mixer made the affair a memorable
The purpose of the meet is "play for play’s sake” and to give women from the four colleges an opportunity to get acquainted and exchange ideas.
The delegates from Eastern Montana Normal extended an invitation for ihe 1948 Play Day to be held in Billings.

( 3)BOWLING -1947
(BY FRED SEARLE)
With a growing interest in bowling throughout the nation, M. S. N. C. is no exception. For the first time in its fifty-year history, the college has added bowling to the list of activities in which students can participate. Organized in February of this year the bowling league is growing in popularity, with over half of the student body taking part in the weekly team competition.
At the date of this writing, the men students and faculty of the school, consisting of 8 teams, have completed a round of twenty-one games with the Alley Rats winning the tournament with 17 wins and 4 losses. Other teams, in the order that they rank, are: the Butte Rats, Faculty, Bums, Normal Five, Boosters, Jokesters, and Hot Shots.
The competition is keen, with all the students trying hard to raise their average and at the same time help their team to place high in the ranking. The majority of students have at one time or another bowled, but there are many who are bowling for the first time and making an excellent showing. Among the school's high bowlers are: Paul Steele with an average of 156, Jim Norman and Joe Antonietti with 154, and John Vetter with 150.
The girls of the school are also out to hit the ten pins down, and many of them are doing it quite frequently. Their four teams, which meet each Wednesday at the Dillon Bowling Center, are out to give each other the keenest of competition with many close games recorded.

The Normal College opened in the autumn of 1897 with classes in this building.
The First Dormitory completed in 1902.Some time. later—the campus gets a fence and some trees.
Room in New Dormitory—1902.Assembly Room—Commencement Exercises for the Class of 1898 were held here.
First LibraryTHE FIRST LIBRARY
The first library room was the present art room, number 311, on the second floor of the Administration building.
The first order for books was placed in 1897; it consisted of 180 volumes. The first volume accessioned was one of Ruskin's works. The set contained 13 volumes. Numbers 14 to 40 were volumes of the American Statesman series. The third set to be accessioned was the Works of Emerson in eight volumes. During the first sixteen years, the library grew from 182 volumes to 8,000 volumes.
THE FIRST COMMENCEMENT
M. S. N. C.'s first commencement was held in the Assembly Hall on the evening of June 16, 1898. Three women were candidates for the diplomas which were granted at the completion of the one year Professional Course then offered: Mabel Gordon of Livingston, Cora McCormick of Billings, and Maud Mosher of Helena.
"Because of the belated spring there were only masses of blue flag and yellow banner available for decoration. The hall was filled to capacity. Upon the platform sat the faculty, the local executive board, and. I believe, our member of the state board of education," recalls Mrs. Kress.
According to the custom of that day, each graduate gave an oration on the educational topic of her choice. The entire program of the evening was as follows:
Invocation Reverend O. C. Weller
Oration—"Rousseau's Educational Ideas" Miss Cora McCormick
Oration—"Educational Doctrines of Comenius" Miss Mabel C. Gordon
Oration—"Pestalozzi"... Miss Maud M. Mosher
(69)As Memory Serves
By LAURA MILLER KRESS
As the first incoming students came crowding out of the evening train September 5, 1897, they saw no motor cars lined up for them, as those were still the horse and buggy days, and there was no commodious dormitory to house them. Responding to the call of the president and the local executive board, the people of Dillon had opened their homes to faculty and students.
Next morning, as they walked up to the Normal School grounds, they saw a handsome Gothic structure topping a bare, rock-strewn hill. Alas, the tree-bordered campus and the spraying fountain pictured in the catalogue were but figments of the state architect's brain.
Soon they found themselves at the open door of the president's office where enrollment was in progress. This was the same pleasant, bay-windowed room still used by the president of today. Strolling about the building later to get their bearings, they looked first into a small classroom sandwiched between the office and a larger room. This, now the business office, was where the language classes were to meet. On the opposite side of the hall were two larger classrooms. The next day they saw the pupils of the seventh grade, part of the practice school, going into the room to the front.
On the second floor they opened the first door they came to only to stand arrested by the commanding view of the jagged Tobacco Root Range boldly outlined against the azure sky. That classroom then became their favorite. Almost opposite was the long Assembly Hall, in which the art department now displays work done by students and frequently presents exhibits of special interest. The present music room was the stage of the assembly room.
Stepping into the third room, one of the girls exclaimed, ''Oh, this is the library see the book stacks.'' "Yes, and there's the program on the blackboard. Let's see if we have an eight-o'clock!" Yes, there was the daily schedule for the fall quarter on the large movable blackboard near the desk. They were to consult this frequently for various announcements or an occasional class assignment.
For some time the library v as large enough for the “weekly general assembly. I recall quite vividly the first visitor who addressed us there— Governor Robert Smith, formerly a resident of Dillon, who naturally had a
(70)somewhat enhanced interest in the Normal School. He was an eloquent speaker and held the attention of his audience throughout. During his closing remarks he chanced to back up against the blackboard. As he turned about, students smiled to see imprinted on his dark coat some quadratic equations of an algebra assignment.
The annals of those very early years chronicle laborious days and manifold duties. The faculty numbered but five. While the local executive board had elected them because of their special training, circumstances made it necessary for some to assist in departments other than their own. They willingly did that. In addition to his executive work, President Sanders had classes in psychology and pedagogy. Professor J. E. Monroe had all the science offered— botany, chemistry, physics, and geography. Professor A. W. Mell taught mathematics and history. Della J. Long, supervisor of the practice school, gave courses in child psychology and primary methods. I had Latin, English, and German.
In 1897 the only school building in Dillon, then a small town of scarcely two thousand, was jointly occupied by the eight grades and the high school. It was sadly overcrowded. V hen our executive board negotiated with the town school board for the use of two grades as the practice school, it was agreed that the upper grade should occupy a room at the Normal.
Had William Shakespeare been in Dillon that fall of '97, he would have answered his query, "What's in a name?" quite differently. The use of the term, practice school, then in vogue, proved unfortunate in the Far West. Dillon mothers were up in arms. "No, indeed, I'm not sending my children to school to be practiced on!" It was a tempest in an oversized teapot. Explanations availed little, and resentment died down only when the children themselves found their new experience quite to their liking and began to boast a little about being in the practice school.
About 1902,1 believe, under the inspiring leadership of the late Dr. William Chandler Bagley, all eight grades of the public school were organized as the training school. All cooperated wholeheartedly with him. It was the proud distinction of our Normal School to be one of the very few institutions throughout the country with such exceptional facilities for teacher training.
Social life was not overlooked in those days. Week-ends saw many pleasant gatherings at the Normal building with student committees in charge of entertainment and refreshments. Memory recalls two amusing skits. One was a clever presentation of MRS. JARLEY'S WAXWORKS; the other was a modernized version of that popular amateur favorite, THE OLD MAIDS' CONVENTION. About once a month programs by town and Normal talent filled Assembly Hall with goodly audiences. The various churches planned receptions and sociables for the students. An occasional Kaffesklatsch for those taking German was enlivened by vocabulary games and the singing of a tuneful Lied.
Various student activities also made their modest beginning. With a considerable number of young men enrolled, a football team was organized with
(71 )daily practice on a vacant lot near the Court House. In October, the Butte High School team was scheduled to play our boys on the home ground. Arrangements to entertain the visitors with the customary dance had to be made. Hall and orchestra must be hired. That required coin, which came, I surmised, out of the business men's pockets.
Morning of the eventful Saturday saw a large delegation, augmented by all the small boys in town, at the railway station to welcome the Butte squad. At once our girls noted their flaunting colors. Quickly they ran to consult me. 'Oh. do help us, Miss Miller! Our boys must have colors, too. Something striking!" "How about orange and black?" Down to the stores they flew, bought all the orange and black ribbon in town, fashioned rosettes, tied streamers to wands which they waved frantically at the game. And so, through the zeal of those girls, orange and black became the Normal colors.
In the spring quarter a tennis court was laid out on the level sward beside the building. But it was used largely by the girls, for the outbreak of the Spanish-American war had called many of our men to the colors. The National Guard was strong in Montana.
Dillon had an active company of the requisite hundred men. Soon after the declaration of war it was ordered to Helena along with other companies from western Montana. One May morning a message came from Captain Walter Crowell that they would pass through Dillon the following evening, bound for San Francisco with the Philippines as their destination. The wires to Helena were hot that morning until stop for that special train had been secured. A telegram apprised the captain of the supper the townspeople would serve them, he should extend the invitation. Somehow a misunderstanding occurred. His reply came quickly: "All accept. Thanks from the seven companies. Am proud of Dillon."
Were the people appalled! Just a day and a half to prepare a supper for seven hundred! But speedily those undaunted Westerners rallied. Committees organized; carpenters slapped tables and benches together; grocers assembled supplies; dairy and nearby ranchers furnished cream and butter; housewives baked hams, roasts, fowl; Butte and Anaconda bakers sent bread. High school and Normal closed. Boys ran errands; girls helped make sandwiches. At six o'clock the long tables on the depot grounds groaned with food; men stood by to pour coffee and refill plates. Oh, that was a day!
Memories like these run away with time and space- with Chinook space in particular. And here is the opportune place to close with the foregoing tribute to the Dillon people who never let their own down, who have always loyally supported our institution and have unweariedly done much to make life in their town pleasanter for students and faculty.
(7?.)THE FIRST CHINOOK
Throughout this book we have been mentioning the "firsts” of several things—the first buildings on the campus, the first faculty, the first graduating class, the first commencement, the first advertisers. It is only right, then, that we should take special note of the first Chinook.
The history of the Chinook does not date back to 1897, it was in 1906 that it made its first appearance. Since that time the book has been published each year, even during the hard days of World War I, until World War II made publication impossible. This first break in the long series of Chinooks came in 1944; during that year and in 1945 and 1946 there was no Chinook.
Each of these annuals is a record of an academic year, and we know that the 1906 book gives us just as clear a picture of what happened that year as our 1947 book gives of today.
There were 118 pages in the first Chinook which was published by the Tribune Publishing Company of Dillon. The book contained individual faculty pictures, group class pictures, class tribute, class history, calendar, class poem, class song, class prophecy, class basketball scores, and stories and pictures of the first track meet, orchestra, Mandolin Club, Glee Club, Male Quartet, Ladies' Quartet, Boys' Chorus, and the "Go" at Sheep Canyon.
Each class had a separate page for its officers, motto, colors, flower, and yell. The dedication was: "To our Alma Mater, in the shadow of whose protecting walls we have spent three happy years, we dedicate this, 'Our Effort.'"
Throughout the book there were numerous original drawings, cartoons, humorous poems, and jokes. The page devoted to the "Go" Day story began with:
"It's a Go!
Hark, hark! the dogs do bark The students are going away,
Some in rigs, some in gigs,
And some on loads of hay."
Yes, the 1906 Chinook is an up-to-date record of a year on the MSNC campus. May our readers 41 years hence find the 1947 Chinook just as interesting and entertaining as we find the first book.

Our Commencement Speaker
Alumni of Montana State Normal College have always been proud of H. A. Davee—proud of his loyalty to the college, proud of his outstanding contributions to the field of education as grade and high school principal, city superintendent, director of training, state superintendent, and college president.
Mr. Davee came to the Normal College the year it opened. Before receiving his diploma, however, he had taught at Chinook, Montana. He returned to take his diploma with the class of 1902—the twenty-fourth student to be graduated, the third man. He was graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1906 and did a considerable amount of graduate work at both the University of Wisconsin and the University of California.
He is a widely experienced Montana educator, having been state superintendent of schools from 1913-1917.
Following this, he became director of training at River Falls, Wisconsin, and then went to Tennessee as president of Baxter Seminary. He returned to Montana, however, and at the time of his retirement in 1941 was superintendent at Plains where he had built up an excellent school system.
Here's to You
Words by Miss Vivian Robe Music by Mr. Ralph McFadden
Thy towers stretching upward,
Guide us on our way.
Thy green lawns rolling outward Hold us throughout the day.
Each memory brings a thrill Of College days up on the hill In a fair Montana valley,
Where our hearts must always rally.
Normal College, here's to you,
And to you we'll all be true,
Though we're far away, at work or play,
We shall keep our colors flying still for you,
As onward through the years let's go,
And no one dares to tell us no,
For we're bringing to fame that dear old name. Normal College, here's to you!

TO OUR ADVERTISERS
The Chinook Staff takes this opportunity to express its appreciation to those who have advertised in the 1947 Chinook. By advertising in the Chinook, you have shown your friendship for, and your interest in, the State Normal College at Dillon. We know your patronage will serve you well as a state-wide advertising medium.
The Chinook has been published by the Junior Class for thirty-eight of the Montana State Normal College's fifty years. Of our present advertisers, the First National Bank, the Dillon Implement Company, Albert Stamm, Dart Hardware, Tribune Book Store and Publishing Company, Eliel's. and the State Bank, all of Dillon, have generously supported the staff, their advertisements appearing in the first Chinook, published in 1906. This loyal support is genuinely appreciated.
