UR BOOK of memories to you—let each page recall a memory dear of college days gone by. Recall your work and play during your stay at M. S. N. C.—let each retrospection blend into a melody which will forever play back to you memories of cherished college life— memories never to gather dust and be laid aside.Dedication
It IS a pleasure to dedicate our book to one who has lor many years given generously of his talent for our enjoyment and entertainment. We, the Chinook Staff of 1949, are proud to dedicate this book to Ralph McFadden, professor of music and piano.T EACHING offers to the youth of America greater opportunity today than does any other profession. Thousands of positions are open for qualified people.
Rising standards, increased rewards, and a greater appreciation for the services of the teacher make the outlook for the profession brighter than ever before in the history of our country.
The emphasis now is on adequate preparation. Mediocrity is no longer acceptable. No longer will the untrained be sought after.
Our college offers opportunity for those who wish to prepare for the good business of teaching and along with it opportunity for those extra curricular activities that make college life interesting and pleasant. The wise student will maintain a reasonable balance between work and play.
The Chinook summarizes what we do. May your memories of 1949 at M. S. N. C. be pleasant. May every new year be a better year at our college.
RUSH JORDAN, President
(4)You whose activities are recorded in the 1949 Chinook have my heartiest wishes for very pleasant days during the closing weeks of the college year. Some of you will graduate and leave. May the years hold much happiness in your efforts to help others! You, who still have courses to complete in order to receive diplomas, will return. More than ever the world pays royalties to those who are willing to invest in themselves. There will always be a demand for persons who possess qualifications higher than those currently required.
And now, congratulations to the Western Montana College of Education! Its students, faculty, and alumni will build it into a mighty institution of opportunity and service.

J . 1919 GRADUATE came back to show her daughter the room where she had lived. The building was gone. She saw that the change was good. Then M S N C moved out and W M C E is here. Soon one will hear "Western" for short and not "Normal." The new stands for all that was good in the old—ideals of wholesome, useful living and service. The spirit that looks out from pages of the 1949 CHINOOK will be with us in 1969 when you count I do not know how many years. And when you are older than any one can imagine, you will be proud of those days when you worked and played and loved and fought at MWSMNCCE.

The Gargoyle Club is the dramatics organization of the campus. Its members have thrilled Dillon audiences during the past year with the finest plays. Just a year ago the organization presented The Invaders as the 1948 commencement play under the direction of the author, Robert Finch. Last summer the Gargoyles took an active part in the pageant. They Came Seeking, which was an all school project written by Robert Finch with the help of the creative writing class. The pageant-drama, which depicted scenes from early Montana history, was directed by Robert Finch. The fall quarter contribution to the list of activities brought to the front Norman Krasna's Dear Ruth under the direction of Miss Helen Campbell. Several one-act plays under student directors were presented at assemblies.
Miss Myrtle Savidge, the regular Gargoyle sponsor, is absent on leave in California where she is furthering her dramatic studies at the Pasadena Playhouse.

To be eligible for membership in this organization students must have an interest in journalism and must be able to complete try-outs consisting of writing articles for the Montanomal, proof reading, mailing, and many other miscellaneous tasks connected with each publication.
Each year the Chanticleer club publishes the Vodvil paper which carries the complete Vodvil program. Several times during the year they hold social meetings at which refreshments are served and new members are initiated. The year's activities are ended with the Publications Banquet at which time the Chinook "comes out" and distribution is begun.

Organized in 1905, Kappa Zeta Nu is the oldest club on the campus. Young women, who are pledged to membership, must have good academic records and pleasing personalities.
A dinner dance, buffet dinner, and many enjoyable social meetings make up the yearly activities.
K. Z. N. officers are loan Yearian, president; Wilma Coughlin, vice president; and Margaret Anderson, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. William Straugh and Mrs. Lyle Louis are the sponsors.
The Art Club
When you think of the Art Club, you think of the Art Club gift shop and the Art Club formals. The gift shop presents to the student body and faculty the many items made by the club members. A few of these are the M. S. N. C. T-shirts, block printed stationery and linen, holiday greetings and place cards, napkins, and many other student-made objects, each of which is carefully planned and artistically designed.
The annual flower formal, which had its beginning in the spring quarter of 1947, is presented to raise money for a scholarship award. Last year the club presented the first of these awards to Virginia Crabtree, an excellent student, talented in art. Virginia held the office of Art Club president during the summer term of 1948. The club now has enough money to present the second award to another worthy art student.
The two activities listed above are the two main activities of the Art Club. Every year brings special tasks in which club members apply their knowledge of crafts, color schemes, and composition. This year such an event is the operetta. Club members have designed and made aprons to be used in the costuming of many operetta participants.
During the past year the club has sponsored four department banquets.
The officers are Marie Vandegrift, president; Rose Badovinatz, vice president; Donna Elwood, secretary; Warren Elwood, treasurer; and Mrs. Mary B. Emerick, sponsor.

Rill Trtglown Organizes Students In Initial Plans
The first week of school, which hereafter will be known as Frosh Week, was one long to be remembered by all the students at Montana State Normal College. It started the moment they stepped off the bus on Sunday into a crowd of students welcoming them, and were promptly put in cars and chauffeured to the College with horns and signs announcing “another carload of M.S.N.C. students.” Upon leaving the cars to enter the residence hall they were greeted
on all sides by signs, some of which were even helpful in directing new students around the campus. When they registered in the dorm, they were given badges to wear, which showed their ’status at the school; whether they were a lowly "frosh,” a mighty upperclassman, or just a member of the faculty.
From that Sunday until the night on which the freshmen were officially introduced to the school, the week was planned in advance by M.S.N.C. students in Dillon at the time, the majority of whom were married veterans, and their wives.

Where's the ball?
It is a bright morning in the year 1910. The day is Saturday, and we find faculty members, critic teachers, and students in their oldest clothing. Hay racks and any other means of transportation available are waiting in front of M.S.N.C. The annual “Go” is about to get underway. An atmosphere of gaiety and anticipation hangs heavy in the air.
The date is changed, it is now September 1948. Students observe the bulletin board in hope that “Go Day” will soon be announced. Within the next week we will see a group strangely similar to that in 1910, with their “best” old clothing and their happiest smiles, awaiting the arrival of cars to take them to Torrey Lodge.
For many years this annual outing has been one of pleasure for everyone at M.S.N.C. A day to enjoy the forest, good companionship, and the ways of nature. What could be more inviting than the smell of hot coffee and food being prepared in the open!
As a closing thought the Chinook of 1906 states that the “Go” was pleasant except that the descent of rain from the heavens was felt in the late afternoon. Take your raincoats, students, even though it is 1948 and the day may be nothing but sunshine!

Joan Yearian was crowned homecoming queen Friday evening at the first home game of the season between the Bulldogs and Carroll College. Beverly Eddington. Betty Breiter, and Anita Dallas were the queen’s attendants. Football captain, Joe Fey, honored the queen with a crown of roses and a beautiful bouquet at half time of the game.
Although the briskness of the fall weather seemed to predominate, the girls were beautifully portrayed in their evening dresses as they were driven around the field in John McDonald's convertible. President Jordan greeted and congratulated the queen and her attendants following the crowning.
The crown of roses and the bouquet were a gift of Lou’s Floral and Gift Shop. —

Soft music and valentines furnished appropriate atmosphere for the annual Sweetheart Ball held in the Residence Hall February 12. Approximately seventy-five couples formed the grand march after which matches and lipstick tissues were given as favors.
Programs were cleverly written in the form of a diary. Musical selections as played by Joe Smith’s orchestra told a story in their titles.
A beautifully decorated recreation hall was evidence that much time and energy had been spent on it. Decoration consisted of artistic designs in red and white streamers and hearts of various sizes.
Not only should praise be extended to members of the House Council but also to those who assisted them and Miss Mathews who so expertly supervised this ball which was obviously one of the most successful social events of the year.

Eugene Johnston and Arnie Barnett1Q48 Football
With twelve lettermen returning from the 1947 Conference Champion squad and a collection of new grid stars, twenty-three in number, Coach Bill Straugh, in the autumn of 1948, started grid training and his second bid for the Conference Championship.
The Bulldogs opened season when Coach Straugh led his squad to a 12-7 victory over the Idaho State Junior Varsity at Pocatello. With only a week's preparation for their first game, the Bulldogs looked outstanding in every department.
On the following week-end the Bulldogs ventured to Billings to play their first conference game against the Eastern Normal Yellowjackets. With only a short time to acquaint themselves with the intricacies of the "T," the Bulldogs nevertheless gave a good account of themselves before bowing to the Yellow-jackets, 19-6.
In their next conference engagement the Normalites fought the Carroll College Saints to a 7-7 deadlock on the home field. Many alumni, home for the annual homecoming activities, saw the Bulldogs display outstanding defensive and offensive ball, and statistics showed that they led in every department; yet they were unable to break the tie.
For the second time, Coach Straugh led his Bulldogs into Idaho territory— this time to play the Ricks College Vikings at Rexburg. Still suffering from injuries and absences sustained in the Carroll fracas, the Bulldogs were unable to cope with the strong Idaho team and were defeated, 33 to 6.
In a game that saw plenty of action on both sides, the Bulldogs battled the Montana Mines to an even 19-19 count on the rivals' field at Butte. The Bulldogs threatened repeatedly and made successive attempts to reach paydirt, only to falter near the foes' goal.
The high-light of the entire season came when the Bulldogs wreaked vengeance on the Ricks College eleven on the home field. Determined to even the series, the Bulldogs played a sparkling game and defeated the favored Vikings, 19-6. The Idaho team had been held to a tie many times before, but it was the first defeat Ricks suffered at the hands of the Bulldogs—adding another important event in the history of football at M. S. N. C.
Bud Trask, Deer Lodge, renewed his fine ball playing for the Bulldogs where his aggressive style at guard position earned him his letter.
Joe Malia, Butte, a small but fast half-back—his open field running and hard-charging style made him a double threat to the Bulldog's opponents.
Don Waldron, Hamilton, played a splendid defensive and offensive game at guard position, and was a vital link in the Bulldog line.
Alfred Taylor, Anaconda, gave a good account of himself as half-back with his driving runs that made him one of the top scorers of the season.
Dan Connors, Butte, played as a strong anchorage in the Bulldog line where his centering was superb and his aggressive ability on defense made him a "headache” to the foeman's ball-carriers.
Stan Smith, Fort Benton, whose splendid ball-carrying, blocking, and tackling made him one of the finest half-backs on the Bulldog grid-team, played his second year with the Bulldogs.
Bud Malee, Anaconda, was always a vital factor in the Bulldog line as his aggressiveness over the ball and behind the line made him a man to contend with.
Duane Meuli, Eureka, with his fine ball handling, passing, and ball-carrying was an idol of the team.
Don Blomquist, Dillon, a large and aggressive tackle whose position was rarely altered for the opponent's ball carriers, was a main-stay in the Bulldog line.
Ed Durkin, Anaconda, displayed great ability at guard where his roughness and defensiveness were unequaled by any opposition.
Jim Drinville, Deer Lodge, was a hard-driving full-back, whose steadiness and aggressiveness led the Bulldogs to pay-dirt many times.
Deane Kleinhans. Anaconda, proved that fine pass-receiving and defensiveness at end position are a constant threat to Bulldog rivalries.

I 83)Dale Tash, Dillon, a small but fast guard, resumed play with the Bulldogs where his excellent ball-handling, accurate shooting, and defensive play made him a real threat on the hard-wood.
Walter Anderson, Charlo, renewed fine ball playing for the Normalites where his aggressive floor game and his eye for the hoop made him a man to contend with.
John McMahon, Deer Lodge, a fast and aggressive forward with superb rebounding and scoring ability under the hoop, was an outstanding member of the squad.
Ray Callaghan, Three Forks, was always a threat with his set shots from the corner of the court and his fast-break offensive ability.
Allen Weeks, Hamilton, a big left-handed hook-shot artist with rebounding and defensive play, was starting center for the Bulldog five.
(86)Basketball Lettermen — Continued
Cliff Leimback, Joliet, whose rebounding ability and ball-hawking style gave much trouble to the Normalites' opponents, was a long-shot artist.
Dick Jacobsen. Chinook, showed great promise at forward position where his ball-handling and keen shooting were excellently displayed.
Jack Rector, Three Forks, proved to be a dangerous man to the opposition with his accurate variety of shots and fast-breaking offensive ability.
Ben Harrison, Deer Lodge, occupied first berth on the Bulldog five at forward where his fine passing and his ability to score in middle court made him a strong contender for Conference scoring honors.
Lindy Estes, Ennis, starting late because of a broken ankle early in the year, showed his usual fine ball handling and defensive play near the end of the season.
Ed Mattix, Hot Springs, moved up to the varsity late in the season and showed great ability with his accurate shooting and defensive play.
Immediately following football activities, Coach Straugh issued a call for cage candidates and was rewarded with the return of four lettermen and a fine collection of hard-wood stars.
After a slow start in which the Bulldogs were matched against such strong teams as the University of Montana, Idaho State, Ricks College, and Westminister College at Salt Lake, the Normalites began an onslaught in which they overpowered nearly every team in their schedule and which later led them to the Conference Championship.
Opening their conference season on January 12, the Bulldogs ventured north to play Northern Montana at Havre and Carroll College at Helena. The Bulldogs were victorious in their double-header against the Northern Lights, but were defeated in a hard fought contest against the Carroll Saints.
Returning to the home floor, the Bulldogs started a winning streak which led them to five straight victories against conference competition. On January 22, the Bulldogs steam-rolled over their old rival, Montana Mines, and won both games in a two-game series against last year's Conference Champions, Rocky Mountain College of Billings. To complete their five game winnings at home, the Bulldogs defeated Eastern Normal and stopped the Northern Lights for the third time.
On the return engagement with Eastern and Rocky Mountain at Billings, the Normalites added three more victories to their record in defeating Rocky Mountain once and Eastern twice.
Then came the long awaited two-game series with the Mines at Butte— the two games which were to give assurance of a conference victory for the Bulldogs. The Mines tried desperately to stop the Bulldogs but with little success. The Bulldogs returned home with two decisive victories, 57-43 and 57-49.
Closing their conference schedule at home, the Bulldogs dropped a hard-fought contest to Carroll College, 57-55, but gained revenge in the second of their two-game series by defeating the strong Carroll five by a score of 62 to 55.
Thus, Coach Straugh's Bulldogs captured another conference title, giving them a five-year record of two championships, tied twice for second place honors, and a third place in the Montana Small College Conference.
(88)Varsity Basketball — Continued
The winning of the Conference entitled the Bulldogs to advance and play in the N. A. I. B. tournament held at Kansas City, Missouri.
In their first game of the single-elimination tournament, the Bulldogs drew a strong Texas Tech, team—a team which had during seasonal play come within two points of one of the nation's best teams, Texas A. £ M. Although the Bulldogs were defeated by the Texas team, their participation as representative of the Montana district was highly justified.

Under the supervision and direction of Assistant Coach lack McDonald, the Bullpups started hard-wood training in late November after the cessation of gridiron activities.
Coach McDonald’s call for candidates brought forth an array of many high school stars and hard-wood artists among the newly entered students. Before the end of the season, some of these stars advanced to play varsity ball.
Starting the season, the Bullpups played a series of games against the local independent team and a number of Class A high schools and soon became a victorious squad. Such foes as Butte Central High School. Dillon Eagles, and the Montana Mines Junior Varsity joined the list of competitors who fell before the Bulldogs' impressive playing.
With a schedule of about twenty-five games against independent, college, and high school teams, the Bullpups emerged from strong competition with a a record that will remain unbeaten for years to come.
COLLEGE GYM—One of the best in the state
Track and Baseball--1Q4Q
In the latter part of March, Coach Straugh called for cinder and diamond candidates and received a large turnout. Among the candidates were many lettermen and former high school and independent stars who gave prospective assurance of a good season for the track and diamond activities.
Coach Straugh began training early in preparation for the Spring Sports Carnival held at Helena on May 20 and 21. In addition to baseball and track, competition in tennis and golf was staged at the meet.
Two newly organized sport activities and courses added to the Normal College curriculum this year were boxing and wrestling, and the interest and competition proved to be very keen.
Under the direction of Jack McDonald and Joe Malia, two ring artists whose names appear in boxing circles throughout the Northwest, the boxing and wrestling candidates began early training for their appearance in ring and mat activities.
The high-light of the boxing and wrestling program came with the presentation of a "smoker" featured at the college gymnasium. The card contained matches of boxers and wrestlers whose outstanding ability was expertly displayed.
A newly organized club appearing on the campus this year was the Ski club. The club is composed both of students who have had years of skiing experience and members who have recently taken up the sport. Although it is the first time that a club of this kind has been organized on the campus, its enrollment is high.
The Ski club had ready access to the Elkhorn Ski Run, famous ski run of Montana. This year the championship plaque was awarded to the College Ski Team for participation in the Annual Elkhorn-Beaverhead Snow Carvinal.
Before the season came to a close, the club became so active that it was able to send representatives to the Intercollegiate Ski Meet held at Sun Valley, Idaho.
Officers for the club this year are: Bill Curry, president; Phil Jones, vice president; Elaine Thompson, secretary-treasurer; Ray Greenfield, student sponsor; and Mr. Gert Daniels, faculty sponsor.

Ten W.A.A. members from each college represented their individual organizations. The girls were divided into color teams and participated in various activities planned by the hostess group. Held at a Gallatin County dude ranch, this year's playday was quite a novelty; and the young women from Western Montana College of Education are enthusiastic over the good time they had.
There were many pleasing comments on the atmosphere of a mountain dude ranch compared to that of previous years on the campuses of the four participating colleges.
During the winter quarter fifty active young women participated in basketball. This sport gave the women the opportunity to group into teams and compete with one another. After several play nights of practice, four teams were selected for a singles elimination tournament to determine the first, second, and third place positions. Vurnie Grayson acted as manager for this group of women.
Usually volleyball is completed during the autumn quarter, but not this year, as it remained for the teams to play off a tie at the beginning of the winter quarter. The young women on the campus, eager to earn points for W.A.A., turned out enthusiastically for this sport, and the teams were numerous. A round robin tournament was held, with Team IV taking the honors.
The spring quarter proved a busy time for the W.A.A. women as they took part in badminton, highlighting the season with a singles and doubles tournament. Many hours of practice were spent in the gymnasium for those participating in the sport.
(97)Archery ana 7
Archery and tennis are the favorite spring quarter sports. When weather is favorable. W.A.A. members are on the campus making themselves proficient in these sports as they earn points.
Softball climaxed the W.A.A. women's season of sports. Pitchers, catchers, basemen, fielders, as well as some heavy hitters—these are all to be found among W.A.A. women who have had an opportunity to practice. During the spring season of playing softball, co eds participated and showed much interest in a round robin tournament. It has been said and proved that softball "is a vigorous sport to keep the gals' figures down to proper proportions."
Chosen by the student body from a good turnout of candidates at a pep assembly early in the school year, these four cheer leaders did a wonderful iob leading the students in yells at football and basketball games during the 1948-49 season.
Many clever yells were worked out and added to the old by the girls as a result of cooperation and long hours of practice.
"Hats off to the Sports Board," said Mrs. Ruth Greenfield, V .A.A. sponsor, to a Chinook reporter, "for they have really done an extra special job."
It is the duty of each one in this group to carry on her own designated sport, and it is no easy matter. She must keep track of all those participating in the activity, run the tournament, turn in the points, and keep a report for future reference to help incoming managers. Those who serve on the Sports Board must have time and energy to give to the work; in addition they must be cooperative.

(119)We Have A New Name
Like many other colleges, ours has gone under more than one name. When the first students registered September 5, 1897, the institution was known as the Montana State Normal School. In 1903 the Legislative Assembly changed its name, and that autumn students were enrolling at the Montana State Normal College.
The Thirty-first Legislative Assembly, meeting in 1949, again changed the name, and officially this institution becomes the Western Montana College of Education July 1. (You may call us "Western" for short and refer to us as W. M. C. E.)
A Commercial department, expanded and enlarged Home Economics and Industrial Arts departments, a new Athletic field—these are the campus improvements and additions which will accompany the new name.
May Western Montana College of Education continue to grow through the years and may there be bigger and better Chinooks to show its progress!
To all who have contributed to the success of the 1949 Chinook, we express our gratitude. And in closing we offer our saluate:
Western College, here's to you.
(Signed) THE CHINOOK STAFF
