The Frontier! How that word swelled the hearts of. many in days gone by. Pioneers saw new horizons in the far off West and hurried to explore what they had to offer.
Education now offers new horizons, and you who are students are the Pioneers to whom they are open. Western Montana College of Education presents a challenge and a promise of adventure to those who are willing to accept responsibilities.
Students, you are the Pioneers at W.M.C.E. . . . New horizons are waiting for you. Will you accept the challenge?
(2)We, the Chinook Staff of 1950, take great pleasure in dedicating this book to a person who has generously given her time and energy to promote the welfare of Western Montana College of Education. We salute Miss Georgia Mathews whose pleasant manner and gracious personality have won her many friends through the years.PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
This is 1950. The middle of a century. It has been a year of promise to some of our students and a year of fulfillment for others. I hope that to none has it been a wasted year. Each year is what you make it. What will you give? What will you take? There is usually a balance. Fifty years is a long time— before it is gone, but no time at all when it is spent. Interesting things have happened in the last fifty years, and despite the ravens that croak, even more interesting things will be happening fifty years from now. Act well your part and have no fear.
Have you who are students given thought to the purposes which lie back of the maintenance of the Western Montana College of Education? Do you realize that you are the folks to whom will be intrusted the development of Montana's richest resources? The farms and ranches, the mines and forests of our state and nation, important as they are, rate second when we think of the children of our commonwealth. These little neighbors of ours, the youngsters next door, or down the street, or on distant ranches, they comprise our most valuable resources because they are the citizens of tomorrow. It is for them that your college continues to function in its essential service of teacher education. It is for them, too, that you must make the most of your opportunities to become able members of the great profession of teaching.
In your CHINOOK for 1950, you have recorded the interesting activities of the college year. May the accounts of your important achievements always be a source of pleasure and inspiration. May they also keep you close in spirit to your Alma Mater when you have left the campus to meet beckoning challenges that await you in the broad fields beyond.
GEO. A. SELKE,
University of Montana
"It came to pass." Or. did it? "It was coming to pass." That is better if used to describe the Chinook year, your year. To be part of a growing College and Montana, and you growing with both when your world is young—that is 1950 when you will study this book as a youngish-oldish person in 1900-and-whatever-it-is. It might even be 2000-and, but by that time you will be older than you are now, or younger and more care-free with a willingness to review. You left your College work unfinished; every student does, with a life-time to complete it. May many days prove to you the "glory of the incomplete."

(?-7)IN MEMO RI AM
EUGENE JOHNSTON Pony
Lo! us pause as we turn the pages of our book and dwell for a moment on thouqhts of one who needs no fine phrases to endear him to our memories. His friendliness has placed him amonq our fondest recollections of college days gone by. The death of Eugene Johnston in August. 1949, made us sad indeed. To honor this ongaging friend and classmate we need only let his generous personality be a model for our own as wo continue on without him.

(46)THE ART CLUB
Each year of school activities varies from those of the preceding years, and, in much the same way, the projects planned, initiated, and carried to completion by different organizations show a wide range of endeavors.
Art Club projects are planned to co-ordinate the interests and specialties of its members which, in themselves, tend to bring out individualism in their ultimate completion. Membership is made up of students who are interested in fine and industrial arts.
The Art Club of 1949-50 can point with pride to the completion and success of the following projects:
. . . the redecoration of the Art Club studio. Keeping up with the times, the members "modernized" the room by blending one orange wall with three peach walls and aqua furnishings to give the studio a very definite "new look."
. . . members assisted with the cleaning and painting of the art class rooms.
. . . the club presented to the student body the first stationery of Western Montana College of Education. The letterhead was designed by Lindy Estes.
. . . not an Art Club project, but the Art Club is proud of the fact that the cover of the 1950-51 "Western" bulletin was designed by a member, Charlotte Ebeltoft.
. . . small wooden Bulldog pins were made and sold at an Art Shop sale. Also offered to the student body were fine leather coin purses. Hand-made leather goods such as these could never be purchased anywhere for the small cost at which they are offered to Western students.
. . . the presentation of a stunt at the annual Vodvil.
The Art Club is the only student organization on the campus to give scholarships to deserving students. The plan initiated in 1948 has already benefited two students.
This year the social activities began with a social meeting and refreshments. A Christmas social hour was given at the home of the club's sponsor, in which the yuletide was the theme arrangement. The year had two initiation gatherings, and the year's activities were brought to a close with the annual Art Club banquet.
KAPPA PI - OMICRON CHAPTER
Kappa Pi, the oldest honorary art fraternity among colleges today, was established on our campus in 1937.
In keeping with its purpose of furthering art interests at W. M. C. E., Kappa Pi has sponsored two exhibits this year. The first of these included a crafts class exhibit from the Missoula County high school under the direction of Earl Allen, a Kappa Pi alumnus. The second was a collection of oil paintings by Golda Talent, a former Art Club president. The members have also sent a collection of their works to the National Kappa Pi Art Exhibit.
Officers and members are: Dick Everhard, president; Hugh Simmons, vice-president; Elda Fowler, secretary-treasurer; Elizabeth McGillivray, Shirley Stocker, and Harriet Holzer. The sponsor is Mrs. Mary B. Emerick.

Under the guidance of Brinton Jackson and Ralph McFadden, the Music Club, a more recently organized campus group, has been quite active during 1950. The initiation of a large number of students early in the year considerably increased the membership of the organization.
School letters are now presented to members who earn enough points by participation in musical activities. The entire group took part in "Etude in Black and White," a concert presented in the winter quarter, and another concert presented in the spring quarter also required a large cast.
Officers of the club are: Dan Boka, president; Mary Baker, vice president; June Leistiko, secretary, and Kay Thompson, treasurer.

(50)KAPPA ZETA NU
Kappa Zeta Nu, the only sorority on the campus, has had an exceptionally active year. The girls in the sorority are pledged on the basis of personality, scholarship, and character.
Events which highlighted the year were a Halloween party, Valentine party, hay-ride, and a spring party. The girls also helped send out Christmas seals.
The Halloween and Valentine parties were both held after meetings and members only were present. Games of various kinds were played, and refreshments were served at each of the parties.
The hay-ride proved to be plenty of fun, and a practical joke, in the form of a false arrest and demand for one-dollar fine from each girl, provided the necessary excitement. After the ride, the girls went to the Snack Bar where Mrs. Straugh and Miss Mikkelsen served chili and popcorn balls.
The spring party was a formal dinner-dance. The Ladies Society of the Episcopal Church served a delicious dinner, and afterwards the girls and their escorts enjoyed an evening of dancing.
The officers of the club contributed their utmost and are to be commended for their fine leadership. These officers are: Patricia Thompson, president; Harriet Mellott, vice president, and Jacqueline Sweeney, secretary-treasurer. Mrs. William Straugh and Miss Evelyn Mikkelsen are sponsors of the organization.
The Student Wives Club met twice a month this year. At the second meeting of each month husbands were present and the couples enjoyed square dancing or cards. The members of the club took turns entertaining.
Activities for the year included a food sale in Mathews' store and a craft meeting in the home economics department. The year was concluded with a dinner-dance for their husbands.
Officers of the club are: Marie O'Neill, president; Lillian Racicot, vice-president; Chickie Wenger, secretary-treasurer.
(51 )GARGOYLE CLUB
Dramatic ability is sought for and developed on the campus of Western by the Gargoyle Club. This organization for the promotion of dramatic activities was founded in 1923, and since that time it has been one of the more active groups on the campus. To give members training in all phases of dramatic work, the club has divided activities into three departments: acting, stage management, and business management.
Acting ability and hard work are required to earn the necessary points for admission to the organization. Wishing to further its goal during the winter quarter, the club, sponsored by Miss Myrtle Savidge, presented a one-act play, "Now Is the Time," for an assembly program.
The officers are: Bill Jolly, president; Mary Lueck, vice president; Shirley Stocker, secretary; Donna Carrigan, treasurer; Ted Feldman, business manager; Ed Tillis, stage manager.
Members of the Gargoyle club who display outstanding talent are eligible for membership in the Jeweled Masque. Admittance to this honorary dramatics club is based on a definite number of points which members of the Gargoyle club earn by working on the stage and scenery, by doing clerical work, advertising, acting, committee work, and by holding club offices.
At present, Bill Jolly, president of the Gargoyle Club, who assisted in the direction of "Joan of Lorraine," the Senior play presented in June of 1949, and Clarence Brammer are the only members of the organization.

School publications at Western Montana College of Education are generally the responsibility of the Chanticleer Club. Members of this club make up the staff of the Wescolite—the college newspaper—and are students interested in the field of journalistic writing. Chinook staff members are eligible for membership on the basis of their creative work with the yearbook.
The club has regularly scheduled business meetings and members participate in several social meetings throughout the year as guests of Miss Albertson, the club's sponsor.
The Chanticleer Club is noted for its annual publication of the scandal sheet and program schedule for Vodvil Skits produced by the classes and various organizations at Western.
Active members of the club are eligible for membership in the honorary society of the Matrix and may accumulate points toward a school letter in journalism.INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
The aim of the International Relations Club is to promote better understanding of international problems. During the year, the club has sponsored a dance, featured movies, and presented speakers. The club is sponsored by Mr. Leslie. The officers are: Eileen Hamilton, president; lean Lay, vice president; Peggy Johnston, secretary.
One of the outstanding I.R.C. programs occurred in December when Peggy Feldman and Lillian Racicot, natives of England and G. I. wives, gave their impressions of Western's campus.
INTERVARSITY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
The Intervarsity Christian Fellowship has as its objectives the furtherance of Christian principles on the campus. In its third year of organization the local chapter played host at the Montana Intervarsity Conference held at Argenta during four days of the 1949 Spring quarter.
Standards for admittance into the group require an active interest in Christian fellowship and Bible study. The WMCE chapter is part of the International Fellowship chapter which has student groups in all parts of the world.

PlayofI to determine representative to NAIB tournament.
One week after the Bulldogs ended their victorious football season, Coach Bill Straugh started basketball practice. He was awarded with a strong turnout of hoopsters which included nine lettermen from last year's championship squad.
Starting the parade of pre-conference games, the Bulldogs defeated the Butte C. Y. O. 57-48. The next event on the sport calendar was the annual invitational tournament in the Western gym. The boys downed the Mines 68-56 and Northern Montana 52-51, but Carroll College edged Western in the final game 46-45.
Taking to the road, the Bulldogs travelled to Rexburg, Idaho, where they won 59-57 and lost 60-41 to split the series with the Vikings of Ricks College.
The following week the boys in orange and black lost to the Butte C. Y. O. 55-49, and beat the Mines 63-50 in an invitational tournament in Butte.
The Bulldogs were next pitted against the flashy Bozeman V. F. W. who won a 57-44 decision on our court.
After losing to Bozeman in the middle of the week, the Bulldogs roared back to easily down Southern Idaho 77-63 and 64-54.
The accomplished Harlem Globe Trotters eased over the Bulldogs 50-37 with their basketball wizardry.
Before going home for Christmas vacation, the Bulldogs journeyed to Lewiston, Idaho, where they lost 54-41 the first night. The boys returned to the hardwoods the second night to drop Northern Idaho 50-46.
The hoopsters returned to the campus after a well-earned rest, and defeated Ricks College 64-44 and 60-59 to wind up the pre-conference schedule.
The Bulldogs started-their conference play by defeating the Montana School of Mines 46-39 on their home court.
After downing the Mines the boys travelled to Havre where they stopped Northern Montana College 57-45.
On the return trip from Havre, the Bulldogs stopped in Helena to play two games with Carroll College which had defeated Western in non-conference play. After a hard-fought game, our boys emerged the victors by one point, 52-51. The second game was a repeat of the first one as the Bulldogs won again by one point, 64-63.
The Bulldogs drilled hard after their narrow escape in Helena, and proved their might as they downed a ragged Mines team 57-46 and 59-46.
The next invaders of the Western court were the Rocky Mountain Bears who were also undefeated in conference play. The first half was close, but the Bulldogs pulled away in the second stanza and came out on top, 54-47.
The Carroll College Saints followed the Bear's invasion of our court, and suffered an overwhelming defeat, as the Bulldogs scored a 78-55 win.
The following weekend was a breeze for the high-flying Bulldogs as they humbled Northern Montana 78-59 and 83-60 in the Western gym.
The final home game of the season matched the Bulldogs with a well-coached Eastern Montana five. The boys worked like a fine watch as they dropped Eastern 69-50 and 79-56.
The Bulldogs journeyed to Billings where they received their only conference defeat from Eastern Montana, 51-50.
Recovering from their defeat at the hands of Eastern, the Bulldogs came back the next two nights to win the Montana Small College Basketball Championship by mastering Rocky Mountain 66-58 and 62-51
The final game on the Bulldog basketball schedule was played with Montana State University to determine a representative for Montana in the N.A.I.B. basketball tournament in Kansas City. In Anaconda's Memorial Gymnasium, the greatest basketball team in Grizzly history humbled the Bulldogs 80-53.

(81)Large Audience Witness Boxing Smoker
I The M club of WMCE presented their annual boxing smoker on the evening of March 9. Eight thrilling bouts were witnessed by a large crowd. Although there were no knockouts and all were non-decision , fights, the fans were kept in a state of excitement.
The main event of the evening brought together two light heavyweights, John Masonavich of Butte and Ken Tnascvigen of Fairview. Both of these boys have done a lot | of boxing; this bout was the climax of the smoker.
A feature attraction was presented at the half-way mark in the form j of a wrestling match between Mar vin Trask and Stan Smith, with Bill Drew acting as referee. This amus- ; ing event was enjoyed by everyone The curtain-raiser was fought by • two boys in the 78 pound class. . Jack Lovell and Dan Carpita. In; (the 100 pound division was Russell Ronncmosc and Bill Pilgrim. In the : lightweight class was a bout be- 1 ’ tween John Sanner and Seumas' Gallagher. Another light-heavy- : weight bout brought Norman Jacob- '
' son and Larry Howell together; this ! one was a real ‘hriller. The welter- • weight division was represented by Hugh Simmons and John Osborne Don Payton, 170. and Deane Klein-hans. 171, fought a bout that kept the fans screaming.
Officials were referees. Kenny Downing and Joe Antonetti; timekeeper. Francis Gibbons, and master of ceremonies was A1 Fidlcr.Back row. lelt to right: Wittwer, Taylor, Bennett, T. Durkin.

The M Club is composed of men who have earned a letter in one or more of the four major sports. This year the M Club has undertaken the task of providing award jackets for men who earned letters during the 1949-1950 school year. To accomplish this the club sponsored a fall formal, a smoker featuring boxing and wrestling, and, according to tradition, the annual M Day. These projects were capably guided by president John MacDonald who was assisted by vice president Adonis Hinkley and secretary-treasurer John McMahon. Coach William Straugh is the faculty advisor of the organization.

Coach Bill Straugh was awarded with an excellent turnout for track. Several lettermen from the 1949 team, which placed second in the conference track meet in Helena, were among the turnout. John McMahon, who led Western to victory last year, is expected to give another excellent performance this year. Hard training by lettermen and new aspirants should provide Western with a team capable of winning first place in 1950.
This year baseball is coached by Carl Davis who has scheduled several games for the Bulldogs. Several lettermen have returned to provide Western with a fine team. Last year the conference series in Helena was rained out, but this year, if the weather permits, the Bulldogs hope to add another trophy to those taken in football and basketball.WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The Women's Athletic Association is one of the most outstanding organizations on the campus. The club is designed to promote an interest in sports among the women and to provide for clean, healthful living. This year the club has had a full schedule and a particularly successful year.
During the first few weeks the W.A.A. sponsored a "get acquainted" mixer for the girls. Members of the club introduced themselves and gave a brief talk on the sport which they represented. Later, games were played and the girls were taken on a "tour" of the campus. Refreshments were served as a conclusion to a most enjoyable evening.
Another big date on the calendar of the W.A.A. was the "SADIE HAWKINS" dance. This traditional affair proved to be a gala one. The guys and gals all turned out in full costume. During the course of the evening Mitzi Dwyer and Cliff Simpson were crowned King and Queen of "DOGPATCH."
A successful sports program, consisting of volleyball, basketball and soft-ball, contributed also to the enjoyment of the members.
Volleyball was the sport for the first quarter, and a great deal of sportsmanship as well as athletic ability was shown. Teams were chosen and the motto was, "May the Best Team Win." We have no doubt that the best team did win! The tourney also provided time for girls to gain the required number of hours to become members of the club.
Winter quarter was taken up with basketball, and here the girls really showed an amazing amount of skill. Teams were chosen, and a tournament was played off. Again the best team came out the winner.
Softball, which is the spring sport, was well attended, and the girls really proved to be ball players.
Also during the spring quarter, a group of ten girls attended the annual "PLAYDAY." This event is an affair which is sponsored by the W.A.A. organizations from the units of the greater University. Hostess for this year was Missoula.
The officers of the W.A.A. for this year were June Leistiko, president; Louise Rogers, vice president; Harriet Mellott, secretary, and Carol Henderson, treasurer. These girls are to be congratulated on the fine job which they did this year. The organization is sponsored by Mrs. Ruth Greenfield.

XThe Champs! They didn't have many big ones but those little ones are mighty. They called themselves the "Mighty Mice'' and volleyed themselves right into top place in the tournament. Pictured, from left to right, are: Esther Rose. Betty Bray, Donna Billington, Jean Wilber. Louise Rogers, Dora DeBorde, Lorraine Fehrenkamp, Betty Breiter and Mary Baker. The captain of the famous team was Doris Chamberlin who is holding the ball.
Guess what? Right! Volleyball! That white spot in the air is the ball and the girls are all ready to return it to the other side. This is one picture where the girls forgot they were being photographed and really got wrapped up in the game!
( 88 )Badminton, an active and entertaining sport. These girls show their skill at the game. The object is to hit the "bird'' over the net and they seem to be doing all right. Pictured from left to right, in the foreground: Doris Chamberlin and Maxine Petterson; in the background, Donna Miller and Billie Lawrence.
These gals are lined up for a free-throw in the exciting game of basketball. Pretty fine form they are showing, don't you think? Left to right are: Marilyn Warburton, Beverly Peterson, Carole Henderson. Doris Chamberlin (referee), Maggie Schmidt, Marion Hauck, Bette Mogus and Maxine Petterson.
It is not everyone who can do this. It takes a limber back and lots of balance. These girls have both, and good looks to boot! We salute Jean Sudan and Helen Jones, a couple of mighty fine acrobats.
These gals have got something that Robin Hood never could claim! We're not too sure of their accuracy with the bow and arrow but their many other attributes make up for lack of skill. Pictured, from left to right, are: Louise Rogers, Lorraine Fehrenkamp and June Leistiko.

Vodvil day hit the Western Montana College of Education campus on March 31st. The air was filled with excitement and laughter. Upperclassmen were thinking back on previous Vodvils and the Frosh were eagerly making preparation for the big night. Then came eight o'clock and the show was on! Each class was represented as were the various organizations.
Music Club took first place with a skit entitled "Showboat." The first scene of the skit featured Dan Boka singing "OF Man River” while others, made up as "darkies." hauled heavy bales of cotton. The second scene was a duet, "Make Believe," by A1 Fidler and Mary Baker. The third scene was another duet featuring Jackie Armour and Dan McKeel who sang "I Still Suits Me." Both were made up in blackface.
Art Club and International Relations tied for second place. Art Club presented an entertaining series of cartoons depicting various people on the campus and downtown. The cartoons were drawn by Hugh Simmons, and the poetry which accompanied them was composed by Sam Anderson. The International Relations Club entitled their skit, "The Last of the Five Million," and satirized the re-allocation of the money which was raised last year for the university units.
Various numbers were presented between regular acts, and Bill James and Dick Disney took the honors with their imitation of Bing Crosby and A1 Jolson. The act was a pantomime in which a record made by Crosby and Jolson was played while James and Disney pretended to do the actual singing. It was a very clever act and the boys did a great deal of work to put it over.
Second place for between-acts was taken by the Men's Quartet who sang, "Why Do I Love You?" and "Goodby My Coney Island Baby."
Prizes were also given for the best costume in the parade on Friday afternoon. First place went to Margie Hork, Mitzi Dwyer, Joann Stiles, Doris Beck and Bonita Roffler who represented that famous soap DUZ. Second place went to Bob Erickson who was a "majorette." Third place went to Darlene Carkeet and Maggie Schmidt who were dressed as the "Klondike Girls.”

Montana's History Is Unique
Not many states can boast of as interesting a pedigree as does Montana.
Montana's United States history dates from April 30. 1803, when Louisiana was purchased from France. Louisiana of that day included the vast area stretching west from the Mississippi river to the Continental Divide.
Four-sixths of what is now Montana was twice owned by France; once owned by Spain; was at various times part of six territories as follows: Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Dakota, Idaho, and Montana.
In 1806, two-sixths of Montana was claimed by three nations —England, Spain, and Russia. The United States title to the area now embracing Oregon, Washington. Idaho, and a part of Montana, was not established until 1846. Two-sixths of Montana therefore was at one time part of Oregon country. In succession, it became part of the following territories: Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
The territory of Montana was organized in 1865 and statehood was acquired in 1889.
Montana is the third largest state in the union. Rightfully called the Treasure state, Montana is exceptionally rich in natural resources.

Yes, sir! The Montana Power Company is a pretty substantial citizen in more than 175 communities of Montana.
Its tax payments are important factors in maintaining better schools, better roads and better government facilities. This year, we will pay more than two million dollars directly to the counties in which we serve, and our over-all tax bill to federal, state and local governments will exceed six million dollars.
