(3)May THIS BOOK SERVE as a record of the many things we have done here and the many ways in which we have prepared for our chosen profession. May it serve as a commendation to the school—students, faculty and administration—for those things which have been done here in the interest of better teaching. But may it also serve as a severe reprimand to those who stand in the way of progress toward better teaching, and as a stern reminder that teaching, the basic and most important of all professions, must be dynamic; as times change, so must our theories and practices of education. It is our responsibility to the children whom we will be teaching to keep ourselves alert and constantly searching for ways of better teaching.2)edica tion
Formal education is acquired by using properly the wealth of many books. Our librarian, who serves us faithfully, is custodian of our treasured wealth. His services as librarian and instructor have been characterized by efficiency, good humor, and friendliness. The Chinook Staff takes pleasure in dedicating this book to Mr. Walter McGuire.
This is my world! Within these narrow walls, I own a princely service.,1 -V »•

Winter comes to Western.
ThIS has been a year of anxiety, but, regardless of uncertainty, plans must be made and work must be done. We are looking toward the future. Our new auditorium will add much to the facilities now available for students on this campus.
Higher standards for teachers are to be required and we must meet the demand. Greater rewards are to be offered and we must be worthy. Educated people will be needed for the reconstruction period ahead, and education is the business of a college.
Think not of the good old days that never were, but of the good new days to come. Good luck.
iAr HAT'S happening to these College weeks? They are going. The distance from Monday to Friday is nothing, and week ends are shorter. Well, I am getting experience and loyal friends and cheerful memories. Once in a while by subtracting dates far apart I can prove that I have learned something. Everyday samples in bright sunlight the CHINOOK records. A little vision of today for tomorrow or whenever. No one takes away what the CHINOOK flashes. May your life be as full and bright as your book!

Jhe Student (Council
The Student Council is comprised of the student body president and the four class presidents. In their hands rests our student government. President Jordan is the sponsor.
The Student Body President Says:
As the school year draws to a close, we look back at our many enjoyable experiences, wishing they had not vanished so quickly. We also see our many mistakes and improvements, hoping to profit by both.
For many of us, our education is being threatened by Selective Service, which makes us realize more seriously how important it is. We hope that this will make us even more determined to continue our quest for formal knowledge, although it will have to be at a later date.
It has been said that the purpose of college is not to enable us to earn our daily bread, but to make each mouthful sweeter. And our realization of the need for truth, plus an opinion, no matter how vague, of what it is, will be a big part of our education.
I hope that your time spent at Western has been happy and beneficial and has helped you to look upon the world with a broader and more determined attitude.
Eddie Monger Student Body President
(39)Student Slctivity (Committee
The Student Activity Committee is composed of four students, nominated and elected by the student body, and four faculty members. It is their duty to use the money in the activity fund to its best advantage for the students.

Mardelia BieberThe Chanticleer Club is a journalistic organization which publishes the WESCOLITE, the college newspaper. It is the duty of every member to uphold a high journalistic standing for the improvement of the student publications. Duties other than publishing and distributing the WESCOLITE are the publishing of the scandal sheet and program schedule for Western's annual Vodvil.
Members can enter this club upon earning a required number of points through contributing to the WESCOLITE or Chinook. Initiations are held every quarter to admit new members who have proved themselves worthy.
The Matrix, an honorary society within the Chanticleer Club, is limited to those who have proved to be outstanding in journalism or who have served the WESCOLITE or Chinook with unusual effort.
These organizations are sponsored by Miss Albertson.The purpose of the Student Local of the Montana Education Association is to guide and help future teachers develop desirable professional attitudes. Through this in-school training, members learn the importance of M E A and the benefits teachers may derive from membership in a professional organization.
Officers for the year 1951-52 are Dan Sweeney, president; John McMahon, vice president; Rosemary Morse, secretary-treasurer. The membership is fifty-three.
Mary Lou Burgess maintained the M E A bulletin board, which is located in Western's main hall. This board keeps the members and students informed of latest findings in education and of the up-to-date activities of their local, state, and national education associations.
Activities sponsored by M E A included bringing to Western Jim Nicholson, president of the student local a Eastern Montana of College Education, who spoke before Western's student body. Members also assisted the faculty in setting up and presenting Western's reading conference, held in November.
At one of the local meetings President Rush Jordan reported on the National Education Association convention in San Francisco last July.
Four student members of the local represented Western at the Southwest District Convention held at Bozeman: Georgia Shorow, Betty Smith, Louise Schuchman, and Rosemary Morse. The local was represented by several members at the Music Educators Association Convention, also in Bozeman.
The State Delegates Assembly at Helena was attended by Dan Sweeney and Rosemary Morse, the two delegates. The two alternates were Mardella Bieber and A1 Guay.
This year the campus organization incorporated its framework membership in Future Teachers of America, the student organization of the National Education Association. The sponsor is Mrs. Zella Flores.
The aim of the International Relations Club is the promotion of better understanding of modern international problems. The club has had several guest speakers, among them Francis Pettit, who talked on conditions in Korea, Alan Spring, who gave his impression of the Far East as he saw it while serving there, and Miss Taft, who told of her trip to Russia.
The club is sponsored by Mr. Leslie and has as its officers Hal Dale, president; Cliff Simpson, vice president; and Barbara Mullen, secretary-treasurer.

The Art Club, whose purpose is to further interest and develop talent in art, is one of the most active of campus organizations. This year, in addition to regular shop projects, such as the production and sale of Yule Logs, originally designed W M C E stationery, and other articles, the repair and refinishing of a sewing machine for use in the art department, and the presentation of a Vod-vil skit, the club can point with particular pride to the completion of a very worthwhile project—the erection of two large campus signs at the northern and western comers of the campus. The design was developed from original plans submitted by members of the club. Bill Holdorf was in charge of the planning and construction of the signs, which were produced and financed completely by the Art Club.
Another feature of the Art Club is its loan fund, established in 1934, to assist worthy students. Beginning in 1948, the club has also granted scholarships to deserving students.
Officers this year are president, Jan Carlson; vice president, Jim Scofield; secretary, Anita Mosby; treasurer, Bill Holdorf. The sponsor is Mrs. Mary Emerick.
Kappa Pi, a national fine arts fraternity with seventy chapters in thirty-two states, is the oldest art fraternity among colleges today. Its purpose is to foster interest and maintain high standards in art. The members for 1951-52 are Betty Brink, Jan Carlson, and Bill Holdorf.
(47)The Gargoyle Club, Western's dramatic society, strives to seek out and help develop dramatic ability. This organization was formed in 1923 to encourage dramatic activity and to reward members of unusual merit. Those with outstanding ability are eligible for membership in a national honor society, Order of the Jeweled Masque.
In the spring of 1951, the Gargoyles produced WINTERSET, a tragedy in three acts by Maxwell Anderson.

Sam Solberg was stage manager.
In the fall quarter of 1951, Joe Ryburn, who had just joined the staff of Western as dramatics and speech instructor, began the year with a production of a three-act comedy, THE MALE ANIMAL by James Thurber and Thornton Wilder. The cast consisted of professor Tommy Turner, Howard Hansen; Ellen Turner, Nadine Graham; Cleota, Dorothy Gulliford; Joe Ferguson, Stan Smith; Patricia Stanley, Georgia Shorow; Wally Myers, Bill Salo; Dean Damon, Harley Iverson; Mrs. Blanche Damon, Ruth Faller; Michael Barnes, Jack Carriger; Ed Keller, Ben Jarrell; Myrtle Keller, Betty Jean Brink; "Nutsy" Miller, Frank Hull; the newspaper reporter, Joe Neyman.

Joe Ryburn is sponsor of the club and the officers are Ruth Faller, president; Harley Iverson, vice president; Beverly Grant, secretary; Jack Carriger, treasurer; Janice Munkers, recorder; Jean Axe, scrapbook; and Cliff Simpson and Delbert Greenfield, stage managers.
HANSEL AND GRETEL, a playlet written and produced by members of the class in children's plays, was presented to illustrate how an original play may grow out of the reading program in the elementary grades.
Joe Ryburn was in charge of the class and Ann Marie Flannigan was the director. Those taking part were Hansel, Barbara Tiedje; Gretel, Betty Smith; the mother, Helen Vegter; the father, Christina Long; the witch, Jackie Armour; the fairy, Irene Hitchens; gingerbread boys and girls, Jaime Bailey, Joanne Boettcher, Agnes Morris, and Sharon Christopherson.

Mrs. Straugh is sponsor of the group. Officers are Betty Scofield, president; Dorothy Marich, vice-president; and Meg Winkley, secretary-treasurer.
The only sorority on our campus is Kappa Zeta Nu. It is an honorary sorority requiring above average scholastic standing of its members.
A formal initiation at Mrs. Luebben's home occurred early in the fall quarter, and later a Christmas party was given at the home of Mrs. Moe. Mrs. Lueb-ben and Mrs. Moe are the sorority's sponsors. Before the end of the quarter, the girls also helped with the selling of Christmas seals.
The winter activities included a musical Variety Show sponsored by the group for the benefit of the March of Dimes, and the selling of stationery and all-occasion cards. With spring came the plans for a weekend at Diamond Bar Inn at Jackson.
Officers of the sorority are Betty Austreng, president; Agnes Tenneson, vice president; Helen Vegter, secretary; and Ann Marie Flannigan, treasurer. Spring quarter, the duties of the treasurer were turned over to Helen Vegter.
The Newman Club, fostering the spiritual life of Western's Catholic students, has met the high standards of the many other Newman Clubs which have been established in America's institutions of higher learning.
Meetings are held twice a month, at which discussions and talks by the club chaplain and members are given. In addition to this, the Newman Club sponsors a monthly communion breakfast and a day of contemplation.
Father Timothy Clifford is the club chaplain and Mrs. Ruth Dillavou is the sponsor.
The Men's House Council was organized for the first time this year by popular consent of the dormitory men.

The Women's House Council sponsors many social functions, such as formal dances and various teas. In addition to this, members are required to set an adult example of behavior, which is a "must" in maintaining the democratic standards in a residence hall.
Members are Janal Carlson, Genevieve Claypool, Rosemary Morse, Suzanne Thompson, Barbara Lawrence, Christina Long, Kaythryn Metully.

Carol group sponsored by Intervarsity Qntervarditif ( Lriltian
Intervarsity is the campus Christian Fellowship organization. Students of all faiths may participate in its activities and fellowship.
Activities this year have included films, off-campus speakers, and Bible studies. The group has also presented chorus singing at the various churches in Dillon and neighboring towns. One of the outstanding activities this year was the Christmas caroling visit to the Women's Rest Home, the Men's Rest Home, and the hospital.
The officers for the year were Janal Carlson, president; Mary Lou Burgess, vice president; Anita Mosby, secretary; and Helen Vegter, treasurer. The sponsor was Mrs. Bridenstine.
To further interest and develop an appreciation in the musical activities of the school is the principal objective of the Music Club. In fulfilling this objective, the members of the club were partly responsible for the success of the chorus presentation of selections from Handel's "Messiah" in December. This chorus was composed of both college students and Dillon residents, and was under the direction of Bertram Gable. Harvey Foster was the accompanist, and soloists included Helen Vegter, Betty Austreng, Ray Simon, Robert Erickson, and Dan Hawkins.
Spring quarter the chorus presented two additional concerts—Mozart's "Requiem Mass" and "The Elijah" by Mendelssohn. The Music Club also made plans to present an operetta this same quarter.
Officers are Jackie Armour, president; Ray Simon, vice president; Anita Mosby, secretary; and Helen Vegter, treasurer. Sponsors are Mr. Ralph McFad-den and Mr. Bertram Gable.

(74)1951 oil a H
Carroll College Saints downed a hard fighting but inexperienced Western eleven 28-0 October 8, on Vigilante Field in the season opener.
Western came back the next week, October 14, and defeated a stubborn Eastern eleven, 13-6 for the Bulldogs' first conference win.
The Bulldogs journeyed to Billings October 20, and were defeated 27-6 by a heavier and more experienced Rocky Mountain team for their second loss.
Western came out on top November 14, when the Bulldogs traveled to Butte and stopped the Mines 14-0 on a snow swept field to end the gridiron season with a 2-2 record.
(75)DAN CONNORS, Butte, played an outstanding game at center and backed up the line on defense.
CAPTAIN ED DURKIN, Anaconda, filled the right guard position, and his selection again as an all-conference guard reflected his ability as a lineman.
BILL MOIR, Mount Vernon, Washington, showed up well at left guard and later played at left tackle due to teammates' injuries.
TED KATO, Havre, showed that size had nothing to do with football and his blocking powers at guard were spectacular.
FRANK HULL, Deer Lodge, played a good defensive guard position, and his ability to break through always made him a dangerous threat.
BOB NISSON, Custer, showed well for the Bulldogs at tackle and will be valuable next year.
JIM HEBNES, Wilsall, ran well at left end, and next year should play a lot of football at W M C E.
ED MATTIX, Hobson, an outstanding end on any team, and two years all-conference, held down the right end position. His ability at tackling, blocking, and receiving was always spectacular.
JOE McDONALD, St. Ignatius, ran well at right half and his three remaining years at W M C E should be outstanding.
STAN SMITH, Fort Benton, was always a threat at right half and opposing teams respected his ability at receiving and blocking as well.
JACK McDONALD, Butte, played a rough game as line-backer, and was always in the opponent's backfield.
DON FOLEY, Butte, played a steady right half position. His spinning and running strategy was always dangerous to the opposition.
KEVIN JOHNSON, Kalispell, hit hard at fullback, and Western is looking forward to seeing him in action next year.
TED WINGER, Poison, sparked the team as quarterback. His passing arm was one of the best in the conference.
AL BOND. Deer Lodge, played well at quarterback and proved he could run as well as set plays.
BILL BENNETT, Deer Lodge, played a stellar game as safety man. Opposing runners seldom got to pay dirt when Bill was around.
NORMAN JACOBSON, Kalispell, filled right tackle position very capably and stopped line plunges repeatedly.
Seniors playing their final season for Western are Captain Ed Durkin, Dan Connors, Ed Mattix, Stan Smith, Jack McDonald, Bill Bennett, and Bill Moir.

Making two points against Rocky Mountain
Western defeats Mines.
Western, although not having an impressive season, played some of the closest games in the school's basketball annals.
Western tied for fifth in Montana Collegiate play with two wins and eight losses.
The Bulldogs played fast and hard, and the season won-loss record was in no way indicative of the ball they played. Whenever hard luck was around, the Bulldogs always seemed to acquire their share.
Western opened their conference season with a journey to Havre, January 11, and Carrol College at Helena the following night, January 12. Western dropped both games, 63-58 at Northern and 59-55 at Carroll.
Western entertained the School of Mines January 18, and won their first conference game 62-53.
Rocky Mountain invaded the Bulldog lair January 25, and defeated the Bulldogs in a heartbreaker, 60-59.
The Bulldogs took to the road February 6, this time to Butte where the Mines took the nod over the Bulldogs 64-62.
Western entertained the Eastern Yellowjackets February 9, and lost another thriller 85-81.
Western then journeyed to Billings for games with Eastern and Rocky Mountain Fedruary 15 and 16. The Bulldogs dropped both games, losing to Eastern 73-63 and to Rocky Mountain 49-41 the following night.
Carroll College traveled to W M C E February 21, and downed the Bulldogs 78-76.
The Nothem Montana Lights invaded the Western campus February 23 and left the floor, victims of a 76-42 swamping at the hands of the Bulldogs, thus ending their 1951-52 basketball season with a victory.

(84)Western placed two men on the All-Conference squad. John McMahon. Bulldog center, made the first team, with Bob Howard, Bulldog forward, getting a berth on the second team.
McMahon is a repeater from last year, as he won All-Conference honors in 1951. John is an outstanding basketball player and made four letters on the Bulldog hoop squad.
Bob Howard made the second team as a result of his rebounding ability and accuracy in the field. Bob is also a four year letterman.
Western is very proud of these men who have proven themselves students as well as athletes.
(85) Jracb 1951
The 1951 Bulldog track team made an impressive showing as the Bulldogs tied for the conference title with Eastern. Both teams scored fifty points each and shared the championship laurels.
John McMahon, as usual, ran away with the honors, scoring 25 points for the Bulldog total. His ability in the track and field events was unsurpassed.
Bill Bennett, Walt Anderson, and Ray Greenfield also captured firsts with Anderson breaking his own javelin record with a toss of 187 feet, 3 inches.
Sylvester Meade, Bob Aleksich, Mike McMahon, Harley Iverson, and Jim Corr also added to the total with points in the various events.
Highlight of the meet was the relay in which Aleksich, Iverson, Meade, and John McMahon combined their efforts to win the relay cup for Western's fourth consecutive year.
Final standing was Western and Eastern, first; Carroll College, third; Rocky Mountain, fourth; and Montana School of Mines, fifth.
Coach Bill Straugh's trackmen should be congratulated on a job well done.
Western thinclads hold five of the Montana Collegiate track and field records. Tom Pierce set the 100 yard dash mark in 1941 with a time of 10 seconds. Sam Pollard followed Pierce's mark in 1941 with a record time of 4:44 in the mile. Bill Bennett set the high hurdle record in 1949, running it in 15.3 seconds. John McMahon, one of Western's greatest trackmen, with a spectacular jump of 6 feet, two inches, reset the high jump record in 1950. John, the most valuable athlete Western has seen for years, will be entering his last quarter of eligibility this spring. He should be congratulated for his spectacular ability and sportsmanship. Walt Anderson heaved the javelin 187 feet, three inches, in 1951 to establish a new mark, breaking his own record of 173 feet, 11 inches, in 1950.

CONFERENCE DOUBLES CHAMPS
Osborne and Weeks represented Western in staging a strong comeback in the conference tennis race.
In addition to the doubles, Allen Weeks also distinguished himself by copping second place in the singles race.
These two athletes deserve great credit in being the first to represent Western in tennis for many years.

The Women's Athletic Association is one of the most outstanding organizations on the campus. The purpose of the club is to promote an interest in sports for women and to provide for clean, healthful living.
The W A A began the year with a party for all the girls. At this party the new students were taken for a tour of the campus and became acquainted with each other. It was a gala evening of new friends, fun, and food.
Again this year the W A A sponsored a SADIE HAWKINS dance. Everyone turned out in full costume and Bill Bennett and Sharline Martin were crowned King and Queen of DOGPATCH.
This year W A A had tournaments in volleyball, basketball and softball, ping-pong and badminton.
Volleyball was the sport for the first quarter. The competition was keen and the volleyball tournament proved to be very exciting.
Basketball, the sport for winter quarter, proved to be as exciting as the volleyball.
Because of the late spring, there was a ping-pong and a badminton tournament. When the weather became nice enough, the club held a softball tournament.
During these sports, students earned enough points to enter the club and two initiations were held during the year.
Some of the girls took a week-end off and spent Saturday and Sunday at Torrey Lodge, their cabin in the mountains.
During spring quarter, a group of ten girls attended the annual PLAYDAY. This event is sponsored by the W A A organizations from the units of the greater university. This year the event took place in Billings and Eastern Montana College of Education was the hostess.
Officers for the club are Suzanne Thompson, president; Betty Lorenson, secretary; Carolyn Best, treasurer and Mrs. Greenfield, sponsor. The vice president is Virginia Cline.
Each sport has a director and these are Ann Jean Reardon, volleyball; Betty Ann Brasch, basketball; Aldene Robinson, softball; Barbara Bateman, badminton; and Genevieve Claypool, ping-pong.

Montana's First Public School
Historians record that the first public school was opened December 12, 1864, in Virginia City, when the first school district of the Territory of Montana was formed.
However, prior to that time in the fall of 1863 a school was established in Bannack by Miss Lucia Darling. The school actually was a back room of her family's home. The enrollment was less than 30 pupils.
Records do not reveal the method of financing the school but it is assumed that the school was supported by subscription. More than likely payments were made in gold dust, the most common medium of exchange of the period.
Only a few books were available for use in the school. These were the books carried west by the pioneers and treasured throughout their lives.
Classes were held during morning hours only and not at all during the colder winter days.
In 1864 the school was transferred to a log cabin on the banks of Grasshopper creek. The structure was built by Charles Sackett and Richard Fenn. Later this building became the property of the United States and was used as a Senate committee room for the First Territorial Assembly.
Among the early-day teachers of the territory were Miss Darling, Professor T. J. Dimsdale, Mrs. Thomas Watson, William Mitchell, Kate M. Dunlap and Michael Roach.
A "Common School System for the Territory of Montana" was established in legislation signed by the territory's first governor, Sidney K. Edgerton, on Feb. 7, 1865. The legislation did not provide for a territorial superintendent of schools or commissioner as the post was titled, but Gov. Edgerton named Dimsdale to that office.

Just Like Money in the Bank!
You'll find your work is faster, easier and more productive if you put ELECTRICITY on the job. Now, more than ever before, you'll find electricity at work in the home, on the farm and in industry, doing hundreds of jobs quickly, efficiently and at such low cost that its users can't afford to be without it.
In the area served by The Montana Power Company, for instance, electricity is one commodity that still is available without large cost increases. In this area, the average cost of residential electric service is IOV2 percent below the national average—truly the biggest bargain in your budget. With the service and low cost of electricity, using it is just like having money in the bank.
