Our Theme: Western Horizons
THE JUNIOR CLASS
Western Montana College of Education Dillon, Montana
mi the WESTERN HORIZONS of an earlier centuAy, we, the Chinook staff of 1951, derive our thenle. 'Looking backward, we see that western horizons have been an inspiration to generations of strep g spirited Americans who have had the courage and the strength to break with the past and push ahead into unexplored regions. Hazarding the protests of nature and the vicissitudes of social isolation. they pushed incessantly forward, for the unscanned West held promise of new hope, new freedom, and a new lease on life.
$3 ££05 .1hi the 1890’s, American civilization, with its institutions and stratification, found its last boundary, and the spirit of the Western Horizon seemed to pass out of American life. Those were the days when the cry "Go West, young man, go West” was drowned in the holloiv echo "The West is dead!"
13)But the West is not dead. For the West is only a symbol of man s primordial search for something greater. The Western Horizons of 1951 overhang the unexplored regions in science, art, and speculative thought. They lead to broader plains of human understanding and greater heights in social amenity. They, too, hold promise of new hope, new freedom, and a new lease on life.
a rich year —Herbert
'A snow year(6)WILLIAM POPE
With deep appreciation of his sincerity and ability, we dedicate the 1951 Chinook to one who has given not only of his time and efforts, but also of himself, to the advancement of mankind along the frontiers of science and education, our friend and instructor, Mr. William Pope, assistant professor of science.
(7)Again we are at war.
For most of us the future is uncertain. It may be that we will not be able to do the things we want to do but will be required to do the things that must be done. In either case this injunction holds: "Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might."
Perhaps in doing the hard and unpleasant thing some compensation may be found. Modem youth seems much concerned with rights and privileges. It might be well to consider also duties and obligations.
(9)I . CHINOOK is a breeze we like. It brings the thaw sign on the mountains, and the radical robins on the campus. More chinooks, and there will be dandelions not unloved, and campus pairs not unloving.
THE CHINOOK is a book we love and enjoy. It carries the warm breath and pictures of College life now to wherever then may be. An old CHINOOK is young as soon as it is opened — today and in a hundred tomorrows. On our way, CHINOOK, cordial messenger of success and faith in what is to be!

(42)International Relations Club
The International Relations club has as its purpose the achievement of a better understanding of modem international affairs. This year, most of the club's discussions were led by members who had prepared short lectures on matters of interest. The highlight of the year's activity was Father Lechner's address on the reconstruction of Germany.
Officers: Jim Hansen, President; Miles Winship. Vice President; Joan Sheely, Secretary-Treasurer.
Student ME A Local
The aim of the Student MEA Local is to provide in-school training for future teachers. Each member learns the importance of the MEA, and of its aims and benefits for teachers.
Officers of Western's MEA are Mrs. Rose Armour, president; Kermit Cole, vice-president; Ruth Schoonen, secretary-treasurer. The present membership is forty-two.
The local MEA maintains a special bulletin board in Western's main hall which keeps the school public informed about pertinent facts in education. MEA also has a column in the Wescolite.
A panel discussion, which featured Dr. Brockmann, president of Northern Montana College, was sponsored by Western's MEA November 15. An assembly address by Miss Sadie Erickson, a member of the Butte high school faculty, and an exchange teacher in England last year, was also sponsored by MEA during the winter quarter.
Two local delegates and two alternates represented WMCE at the Delegate Assembly held at Helena during the month of December. Every member is active, for he or she must serve on committees which deal with the many problems confronting those interested in public education.
(43)The Art Club
One of the most active of campus organizations is the Art Club. Its purpose is to foster interest and develop talent in art at WMCE.
The club is financed by means of its shop, which is opened once or twice a quarter for the purpose of selling articles designed and made by members. Among the various articles sold at this shop are v et chalk paintings, plaster plaques, originally designed WMCE stationery, yule logs, loom weaving, and many others.
In 1934, the Art Club established the Art Club Loan Fund, which is used to assist worthy students. Eight students have already realized benefits from this fund. There is also an Art Club Scholarship Fund. Two students, both of whom are now teaching, have been awarded this scholarship.
One of the most active club quarters occurs during the summer. For the past ten years, requests have come in for a summer club. Last summer, under the able leadership of Amy McKenna, this hope was realized. The club numbered twenty-two members. They voted oil paintings as their project for the shop, and at the close of the term paintings by Amy McKenna, Margaret Pfiffner, Charlotte Ebeltoft, Marian Hanson, Kay Sprunger. Ruthlee Kiefert, and Margaret Anderson were sold.
At the North Montana Fair, Irene Nelson and Henry Elwood placed in leathercraft; Charlotte Ebeltoft placed in weaving.
At the end of every year, the activities of the Art Club are climaxed with the club banquet.
Mrs. Mary Emerick is the sponsor.
Kappa Pi — Omicron Chapter
Kappa Pi is a national fine arts honorary fraternity with seventy chapters in thirty-two states. It is the oldest honorary art fraternity among colleges today, and was introduced on our campus in 1937.
During 1950 and 1951, the Kappa Pi members sponsored the art exhibits at the college. Three members sent their work to the Northwest Kappa Pi exhibit in Oregon in 1950, and eight members exhibited work at the North Montana Fair in Great Falls.

(46)The Newman Club
The Newman Club is a new comer on the campus this year. Its purpose is to foster the intellectual and spiritual needs of the Catholic students.
The club has had a successful beginning. The activities sponsored by the club are two monthly meetings for discussions and talks by the students, a regular monthly communion breakfast, and a day of recollection.
Father Timothy Clifford is the Chaplain, and Miss Elinor Larson and Mrs. Ruth Dillavou are the sponsors.
The purpose of Inter-varsity Christian Fellowship is to further Christian principles on the campus. Students of all faiths gather and participate in the devotional and discussion group.
The topics for discussion this year have centered around the topic Christianity and Science. For some programs there have been films; for others, off-campus speakers. One of the main projects the group has engaged in this year is that of visiting the Women's Rest Home and the Men's Rest Home on alternating Sunday afternoons.
The officers for the year were the following: lanal Carlson, president; Mary Leila Jackson, vice-president; and Dolores Anderson, secretary-treasurer.
Women's House Council
The governing body of the Residence Hall is the Women's House Council, sponsored by Miss Georgia Mathews. This year the following members were elected to represent the dormitory girls: Jean Ann Fisher, Margie Hork, Janal Carlson, Joan McMichael, Betty Morgan, Rosemary Morse, Genevieve Clay-pool, and Suzanne Thompson.
In reality, this organization is a traditional policy committee, with upper classmen holding over as honorary members, to discuss pertinent needs as they arise, and to formulate new rules.
Teas, formals, and other social functions at the dormitory are sponsored by the group, who also act as leaders and "big sisters" in observing and respecting the rules and standards of student government as it pertains to the best interests of the Residence Halls.
(47)Kappa Zeta Nu
With the beginning of fall quarter, Jean Ann Fisher took over the duties as the new president of KZN; Helen Jones as vice-president; Dora DeBorde as secretary-treasurer; and Miss Evelyn Mikkelsen and Mrs. William Straugh as sponsors.
New members were needed, and plans had to be made for the coming year. A turkey raffle was planned for November 22; Tom Durkin won the turkey. On November 29, a formal initiation for seven girls was held in the Home Economics Department. The succeeding activities of the sorority for fall quarter were the Halloween party, held in honor of the dormitory girls, the selling of Christmas Seals, and the giving of Christmas gifts to secret pals.
Winter quarter activities consisted of a Valentine party, held exclusively for the girls of KZN, and the selling of stationery and all-occasion cards.
With the coming of spring quarter, there was the expectancy of going to Diamond Bar Inn and of the fun it would hold for the girls. There was also the annual spring dance, which helped high-light the activities of the sorority for another school year.
Student Wives Club
The Student Wives Club held its meetings once each month this year. The members of the club took turns entertaining.
Activities for the year included a craft club, made up of interested members of the regular club. Its meetings were held two or three times each month. The club also had a food sale at Christmas time and a rummage sale in the spring. In addition, the members enjoyed several husband and wife parties, and concluded the year with a dinner-dance, given in honor of the husbands.
The officers of the club were Leslie McGee, president; Chickie Wenger, vice-president; and Audrey Dunn, secretary-treasurer.

The Gargoyle Club, Western's dramatics society, was founded in 1923 for the purpose of encouraging dramatic activity and rewarding members of unusual merit. Gargoyles who have notably furthered dramatic activity at the college are eligible for membership in the honor society, Order of the Jeweled Masque.
In 1950, the Gargoyles produced The Winslow Boy, Terence Rattigan's famous Broadway success. The play, directed by Miss Myrtle Savidge, had the following cast: Ronnie Winslow—Clarence Brammer; Sir Robert Morton Ted Feldman; Grace Winslow--Jean Lay; Catherine Winslow—Wilma Strand; Dickie Winslow -Bud Thomas; Violet—Jackie Haines John Watherstone—Bob Erickson; Desmond Curry—Don Shaw; Miss Barnes—Mary Leuck; Fred—Keith Hamilton.
In the fall quarter of 1950, Dr. Selma Guttman joined the faculty at Western and assumed the duties of Gargoyle sponsor. Under her competent guidance, three one-act plays were produced: A Merry Death by Evreinov, directed by Ruth Schoonen; The Trysting Place by Tarkington, directed by Jacqueline Armour; and The Romancers by Rostand, directed by Beverly Grant. This was the first experience for these students as producers, and the success of the performances indicated a great deal of effort and ability. The Trysting Place and The Romancers toured to Whitehall, where they were enjoyed by the high school audience. The Trysting Place was also presented at Anaconda High School.
Gwen Ferris's one-act comedy, The Courting of Marie Jenvrin, directed by Pamela Rubel, was presented at a winter quarter assembly along with Cloudburst, Sammy Solberg's original one-act tragedy, which Sam directed himself.
Dr. Guttman directed Maxwell Anderson's Wintersot, a tragedy in three acts, in the 1951 spring quarter. Its cast read as follows: Mio—Howard Hansen; Miriamne—Loletta Yterhus; Garth—Ben Jarrell; Judge Gaunt—Ed Kahoe; Ezdras—Cliff Simpson; Trock—Robert Everhard; Shadow—Sylvester Meade; Policeman—Allen T. Clark; Hobo- -D.

Sam Solberg was stage manager.
(53)The Music Club
We introduce now another active gioup on the campus; the Music Club and Chorus. This club has been on the campus for many years.
The purpose of this organization is to foster musical activity and appreciation on the campus. We might mention here that the activities sponsored by the club this year have been a job well done. The sponsors of the Music Club are Mr. Bertram Gable and Mr. Ralph McFadden.
During the fall quarter the Chorus presented a Christmas concert directed by Mr. Gable. This program consisted of selections, appropriate to the season, sung by the mixed chorus, women's chorus, caroleurs, and soloists.
Winter quarter "Campus Call to Arms," a musical play in three acts, was presented by the Chorus. The skit was a "take-off" on Western's campus. It was adapted to the context of 17 hit songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The story and dialogue were written by Florence Gray with the assistance of Ann Flannigan and Betty Austreng, Ed Monger and Mr. Gable, the voice instructor. The musical production was under the direction of Bertram Gable with Florence Gray assisting. Harvey Foster and Ann Flannigan were piano accompanists. Stage sets and management were by Robert Erickson, with Beverly Grant, Jack Carriger, and Agnes Tenneson in charge of makeup.

Spring quarter the club presented a program of sacred music under the direction of Mr. Bertram Gable. Taking part were the mixed chorus, the women's chorus, and a number of soloists. The mixed chorus is composed of townspeople as well as college students. Accompanists for this concert were Ann Flannigan and Betty Austreng for the mixed chorus, and Harvey Foster for the women's chorus.
The Caro lews
The Caroleurs is a group of students, talented in music, who sang madrigals on several occasions.
Each year at Western the students in the Music department contribute to the entertainment of students and faculty at assembly programs.
This year Ed Durkin, Betty Austreng, Jackie Armour, Ann Flannigan, and Harvey Foster have given commendable performances.
Genevieve Cole, a i 950 graduate of Western, v as back again this year as a special student of piano under Professor Ralph McFadden. Genevieve presented a piano recital in the college auditorium on April 24, which included Bach's French Suite No. 5 in G, Beethoven's Sonata Op. 2 No. 3, Brahms' Rhapsodie in G Minor, de Falla's Serenata Andaluza. and three Chopin Etudes.
It is the purpose of the Chanticleer Club to publish the Wescolite, the college newspaper, and to encourage interest in journalism. In addition to circulating the paper, the organization publishes the scandal sheet and program schedule for the annual Vodvil.
Students interested in journalism can become members of the club after earning the required number of points by contributing to either the Wescolite or the Chinook. Initiations in the autumn and winter quarters increased the membership of the club from four members to fifteen.
Lyle Berg, elected to the vice-presidency to succeed Mardel Lane, became president of the group when Marv Eccleston graduated at the conclusion of winter quarter. Betty Christensen served as secretary-treasurer of the club.
Miss Albertson sponsors the organization.
With Chanticleers serving as staff reporters, Florence Gray carried the work of the editor during the autumn quarter. Shirley Chaffin and Ed Monger were the business managers.
During the winter quarter Lyle Berg was editor; Marv Eccleston, assistant editor; and again Shirley and Ed had charge of advertising. During the spring quarter Lyle Berg was again editor, assisted by Shirley Chaffin and Kermit Cole. The business managers were Ed Munger and Imogene Cole.
At all times Chanticleers serve as reporters.
The Matrix is an honorary society within the Chanticleer Club. Membership is reserved for those who distinguish themselves in journalism or who serve either of Western's publications faithfully.

Bulldogs Down Westminster 7-0
By HERMIT COLE
The Western Bulldogs met and defeated a well-matched Westminster team on their field Saturday, November 11, closing the season with five wins and one loss.
In the third period of a see-saw game, Ed Mattix took a short pass from Kevin Johnson and galloped the remaining 46 yards to the goal. John McMahon assisted with timely down field blocking. Joe Fey booted the ball through the up-rights, making the score 7 to 0.

Western Montana College of Education defeated the Montana State College Bobkittens, 13-0, in an exhibition of rough football Sunday afternoon at Vigilante Field, and closed the season second in the conference
Sunday’s climactic victory was the fpurth victory in five games for the powerful Bulldogs whose power proved the difference with a good visiting Junior Varsity from the State College.
Western's first tally came in the first quarter and was the result of a steady ground gaining offense. Halfback Stan Smith climaxed the drive with an off-tackle plunge that netted the Bulldogs fifteen yards ar.d Western’s first score of the afternoon.

Yell leaders—Helen Jones, Jean Sudan, Aldene Robinson, Jean Ann Fisher, Joan McMichael — ready to cheer the Bulldogs.Football 1950
The football squad this year had a very impressive record: five wins to only one loss. The line had power and speed with enough experience to know how to use these qualities. The back-field had speed, drive, and versatility, and the whole team seemed to be "deep" enough to withstand anything that should come.
However, injuries plagued the team throughout the season. To begin with, Norman Jacobson, a star tackle on any team, suffered a broken leg. Then Bill Bennett, an occasional punter, sprained his ankle. Kevin Johnson, a man with an accurate passing arm, became absent from the line-up with a badly wrenched knee. And, as if that were not enough, Dick Knapton, the quarterkxxck whom the team had leaned on so heavily, broke his ankle.
In spite of all these handicaps, the valiant "3ulldog" team, with its fighting spirit, sportsmanship, and determination of which Western is so proud, ended with an impressive record. They gained all that could be gained from a wholehearted effort in a competitive sport. To Western, these men are champions of the highest kind.

(77)Basketball: The Conference Season
The Bulldogs entertained a tairly successful and very unusual basketball season this year.
Coach Bill Straugh's team finished third in conference play and took part in the N. A. I. B. elimination tournament in Billings.
One of the "unusuals" took place in the series of games with the School of Mines. Western opened its conference schedule with an 82 to 33 victory over the Mines. Later on in the season the Bulldogs trounced the Orediggers again 99 to 73 and the next night lost to the same team 54 to 56. This was only the second conference win of the season for the Mines.
Western journeyed to Carroll and lost 64 to 61, then went to Havre where the Lights were victors in both games, 48 to 54 and 43 to 47. In the return games with these teams Western was entirely victorious, cleaning Northern 67 to 53 and drubbing Carroll 91 to 65 and 58 to 55 in their last conference game of the
The Bulldogs were victors in all three games with Eastern, winning 81 to 73, 69 to 67, and 74 to 73.
With the conference champions, Rocky Mountain, Coach Straugh's team won one 68 to 65 and dropped two—50 to 59 and 55 to 63.
The Bulldogs won 9 conference games and lost 6 for third place. During the season they won from, and lost to, every team in the conference.

The Pep Band
The Pep Band was an outstanding feature in the Western gymnasium during this year's thrilling basketball season. The band, led by Mr. Ralph McFadden, was very popular with townspeople and students alike for its stirring marches and school songs, which helped to spur the Bulldogs on to victory. Hats off to the pep band, whose efforts have lent considerable distinction to the 1950-51 sports year.Conference Standings

Tribute to Four-Year Men
Dale Tash of the 1949-50 squad, along with Walt Anderson, Allen Weeks, and Ben Harrison of this year's squad are the first four-year letter men in basketball since the pre-war season of 1940-41.
These five years gave Western two championships, a tie for second and third place twice. These men have more than proved their athletic prowess at Western.
Western's track team put a stirring climax on the track season by decisively defeating the other five colleges for the track championship. Each of the spirited Western track men turned in a fine performance on the final day. The entire team seemed determined to excel in this competitive individual sport. John McMahon inspired the whole team with his magnificent performances which collected 23 points for the team. John further distinguished himself by winning four firsts: 100-yard dash. 220-yard low hurdles. 220-yard dash, and the high jump. A new record of 6' 2" was set for the conference.
The high hurdle race was a good example of the friendly, but intensely competitive spirit of track. Bill Bennett, another of Western's outstanding track men, retained his championship by taking first place.
Walt Anderson again commanded the field in the javelin throw.
Dale Kusomoto, Bob Aleksich, Jack Rector, Dick McGuire, and Merrill Mann added frequently to the team's momentum as it rolled over Rocky Mountain, Eastern, Carroll, Northern Montana, and Montana Mines Colleges.
The school is justly proud of these men for their outstanding ability. We also congratulate Coach Bill Straugh on his development of such a fine team.

(88)Women’s Athletic Association
Women's Athletics at Western were an important part of the activity schedule for 1950-51, and the W. A. A. was responsible for sponsoring many successful items on the calendar.
The group this year was led by Valdean Osteros as president, lean Sudan, vice-president; Lois Ellwood, secretary; and Beverly Grant, treasurer. Mrs. Ruth Greenfield is the organization's sponsor.
To start the fall quarter right, the girls sponsored a Freshman mixer in the gymnasium, complete with games and refreshments. Everyone ''got acquainted,” and heard how W. A. A. works.
The annual "SADIE HAWKINS” dance, a traditional affair, was a great success. With everyone attending in costume, the judges chose Doris Chamberlin and Norman Jacobson as King and Queen of "Dogpatch,” with Jean Sudan and Cliff Simpson a close second.
A sports program for the year was started with a round-robin tournament of four teams in volleyball. This was the first of many opportunities for girls to gain membership points, and soon fifteen new members were initiated.
Winter quarter, basketball was the leading game, and again teams were chosen, and games were played until a championship group was named. In the spring, interest turned to softball.
This year Western played hostess to the annual "PLAYDAY” groups from all the other units of the University of Montana, with ten girls attending from each of the schools in Bozeman, Billings, and Missoula. Every member of the W. A. A. was kept busy at the carnival held in the gym during winter quarter in an effort to raise money for this project.
Western congratulates this year's W. A. A. group for its fine record.
This year is was the turn of Western Montana College's Women's Athletic Association to play the part of hostess to the other three university units — Eastern Montana College, Montana State College, and Montana State University, for the annual playday. This playday is a function that is held during the month of May and the four schools are represented by ten members of the various W. A. A. organizations of the respective schools. These girls are accompanied by two sponsors.
The object of the playday is to give the girls on one campus a chance to get acquainted with girls from other units, and to have a week-end of fun and play together.
The playday commences with a get-togother dinner on Friday night and with some evening get acquainted games. Saturday morning, bright and early, they begin a day of activity by color team distribution so that all girls are represented on each team. They play volleyball, softball, enter into archery, badminton, horseshoes, and other activities that the hostess group has arranged and planned for them. The entire day is devoted to play either on color teams or some are played school against school if the hostess unit desires this. Saturday evening is taken up by square dancing and round dances. The awards to the winning color teams or winning schools are given out. These are some type of souvenir of playday. Sunday morning breakfast concludes the playday with a farewell to each school by the hostess unit.

(91)We wish to extend our congratulations and thanks to Mr. Lawrence Osborne, superintendent of buildings and grounds. "Ozzy," as he is commonly called by his many friends on the campus, rounds out his twenty-fifth year of service at Western on May 6, 1951.
(94)Before Closing the 1951 Chinook . . .
On behalf of the administration, faculty, and student body, we wish to pay special tribute here to those friends and classmates who have left us to join the armed forces of the United States. Thus far, 19 of our members have set aside their books to take up arms in this grave struggle to free the world from oppression.
We hope that the Chinook will reach every one of our members — in the training camps, on overseas battlefields, and aboard ships. Perhaps this small token of our appreciation will remind them that we are thinking of them, and looking forward to their return.
The courageous sacrifices that our boys are making abroad brings us to a deeper realization of the vital duty that weighs upon those of us who remain. We, too, have a job to perform. As we pass (rom the college of learning into the great college of life, let us remember to keep our goals clearly before us. We must carry with us, into the schoolrooms, the principles of truth, understanding, and love. With the broad mind and the open heart, we must persistently strive to uphold the principles on which our nation was founded. We must teach others to live democracy while our boys are fighting for it. Then, we will have assured them that ours is a country worth living for, worth fighting for, and. if necessary, worth dying for.

First School District, State Superintendent
Th© first school district in this state was organized March 5, 1886, in Virginia City, Montana historians record. The trustees were Joe Millard, chairman; Samuel Word and Captain Rodgers. Rev. George Smith was clerk of the board.
The first superintendent of public instruction for the state of Montana was John Gannon. He left little permanent record. However, later administrations credited him with the State Reading Circle and the beginning of the observance of Arbor day.
His successor, E. A. Steere, did better in his report. He prepared a list of all of his predecessors in office and reported the establishment of the various state educational institutions.
The University of Montana was located at Missoula and a site of 40 acres was donated by F. G. Higgins and E. L. Bonner. The university was established in 1893 and opened two years later.
The Montana State College, established in the spring of 1893 as the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, was opened with a full faculty that fall.
The Montana State Normal School and College was located at Dillon, May 23, 1893, Poindexter and Orr of Dillon donating the site of 10 acres. The school opened four years later.
The State School of Mines was established in Butte, Feb. 17, 1893, and opened in 1900.
