This rustic sign, designed, constructed, and installed by the Art Club, annoupeffS- to cxll Lu i4 42y on highway 91 that this is Western.
Knowledge is a jeweL a gem of great worth, which may be of value today and which may bring priceless opportunities tomorrow. Once secured, it is yours for life!
If learning were all we gained at Western, it would make the years spent here worthwhile, but the getting of knowledge is only one phase of our varied and interesting college life.
We also treasure the hours of companionship with friends, many of whom will remain dear to us through the years.
Equally precious are the experiences we share in learning to live, plan, and work in harmony with one another in the dorm and in the classrooms; in the various organizations; in opportunities for being dramatic and athletic participants and spectators; in the memories of "Go" days at Torrey Lodge; and in the happy hours of cleaning the campus together on "M" days, followed by the picnics at the campus grill.
All of these blended into one picture make for pleasant hours today and for bright memories in all the tomorrows.
"Lest We Forget"—we offer this book, that each succeeding tomorrow may be gladdened by today.
O. KAY MOE
Education is most nearly complete when the mind and hand are both trained, when they work together, the hand as the servant of the mind, carrying out what the mind has perceived.
We have chosen, therefore, to dedicate this book to one who, as a trainer of both mind and hand, has given practical application to a theory held by educators for centuries.
We take pride in presenting this Chinook to Mr. O. Kay Moe, professor of Social Studies and Industrial Arts.I HAVE always believed that the affairs of the world should be managed by intelligent people of good will, who have trained minds and skillful hands. Too long have we placed our faith in mediocrity.
College is a place where minds are trained and hands become skillful. It is also a place where people learn the meaning of good will. It is unfortunate that more people do not take advantage of such opportunities. To you who are here my congratulations and best wishes.

(8)Dr. Sheldon E. Davis—President Emeritus
Sheldon E. Davis Chapter
Dr. Sheldon E. Davis, President Emeritus of Western, gave the campus group of the Future Teachers of America permission to name their chapter the Sheldon E. Davis Chapter of Future Teachers of America. In naming its chapter for Dr. Davis, Western is carrying out the Future Teachers policy of naming the chapters for eminent educators.
In securing the name of the distinguished President Emeritus of the school, the Future Teachers were singularly honored. The members are grateful to Dr. Davis for his generous action in allowing his name to be used.
The chapter held a re-dedication ceremony during the spring quarter. Several prominent Montana educators were present at the event which was high-lighted by a candle-light ritual. The 1952-1953 officers of the chapter took part in the ceremony.
Dr. Davis was president of the college for twenty-seven years. He retired from active duty in 1946, but still takes part in the college life. At the time of his retirement Dr. Davis was among the three teachers college presidents who had been longest in service, according to a study made by President Uel W. Lamkin of Maryville, Missouri.
The achievements of Dr. Davis in the field of teacher training are outstanding. In addition to his work as college administrator, he is the author of several textbooks in education, history and government.
(9)Western's Favorite WalkAfter Commencement—The Coffee Hour
Dignified and impressive ceremonies took place on Western's campus at the end of the 1952 summer session, at which time the new auditorium was formally dedicated.
On the campus for the ceremony was the Montana State Board of Education which included in their ex-officio capacity the Governor, John W. Bonner and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Mary Condon. Miss Condon was the commencement speaker. She chose as her subject "Opportunities for Service."
The State Board of Education held its August meeting on the campus, one of the few times that such an event has occurred in Dillon.
The dedication ritual was initiated by a solemn procession which marched across the campus to the new building. The procession was led by O. K. Moe, commencement marshal.
At the commencement President Rush Jordan awarded degrees to thirty-five students and diplomas to forty-six. This group represented forty Montana cities and eight states.
The wives of several members of the board were present and enjoyed a full schedule of social activities, which included a formal dinner at which President and Mrs. Jordan entertained. Mrs. Jordan was also hostess at a tea at her home. In addition there were a luncheon at the Residence Hall and a dinner at Pipe Organ Lodge.
The new auditorium, one of the finest in the state, was completed during the summer. This commencement was the first held in the new building. More than a year of time and over two hundred thousand dollars went into the building. Through the efforts of President Rush Jordan, Western came into possession of a fine addition to the campus.

Another year is gone and wo stand at the season when men, like Nature, begin anew. A threshold lies before us, inviting and bidding each of us to step forth into our future. Now we leave the year behind us. though we shall treasure its momorios. The knowledge we havo gained, the experiences and the accomplishments of this year are a part of us. They are an investment for the future from which we shall draw our strength and confidence regardless of the pathway we take on "stepping forth."
Before we set out. each on his own way, I want to tondor my best wishes for the continuance of what you havo begun, namely, preparation for your responsibility to society. Each of you has shown through your enthusiasm, willingness and cooperation, in all phases of college life, that you realize full well the importance of college preparation. I also take this opportunity to express my appreciation to all who havo made the year a successful experience for everyone and a good year for the annals of Western. Thank you.

The International Relations Club is the campus organization given to the study of world and domestic political problems. Members study world and national politics and discuss their research findings at regular meetings. In addition the club endeavors to bring to the college a few speakers to report on current events.
Dr. Sheldon E. Davis addressed the organization on legislative trends and accomplishments throughout the United States and commented on the types of proposed legislation in various parts of the country.
Dr. Bruno Katz talked to the membership on the four top men in the Soviet Politburo at the time of Stalin's death.

The club also held a Christmas sale of articles made by the club members. Included in this sale were yule logs, hand-designed and cut stationery, leather goods and sculpturing.
A smaller exhibit was shown during spring quarter at which work done by this year's art department students and club and Kappa Pi members was exhibited. An open house was held, and the redecorated clubroom, with the handsome and artistically painted mural done by Jim Corr, was displayed for the first time.
One of the greatest contributions of the club to Western was the designing, making and wood-burning of the beautiful sign, "Western Montana College of Education" that hangs on the highway side of the campus, announcing Western to all passersby.
Gold pins, in the shape of a palette with the WMCE emblem, were designed by club members.
Officers for this year are Clara Claver, president; Barbara Lawrence, vice president and scrapbook chairman; Myrtle Nolte, secretary and point keeper; Dorothy Gulliford, treasurer; and Cleo Bagley, shop treasurer.
Kappa Pi is a national fine arts honorary fraternity organized for the purpose of upholding high ideals, furthering artistic inclinations, raising standards. and furnishing the highest reward for conscientious efforts among art students.

The Chorus presents a sacred concert
The Music Club states as its purpose to further the interest in music and develop an appreciation of it. The past year has been an active one for this department with the production of the Christmas Concert and the operetta— "Down in the Valley." Other activities include the caroling party, piano and voice students' recital, selling pop at the concerts, and recently added, "The Music Hour," which is an hour set aside each week for the playing of records for all of those interested in listening to promote an appreciation and interest in music.
The officers of the club are Agnes Tenneson, president; Carolyn McFadden, vice president; Mary Leila Jackson, secretary; Jan Dirks, treasurer; Margaret Hilton, point recorder; and Virginia Parks, librarian.
own in the
The largest project undertaken by the Music Club during the past year was the production of "Down in the Valley." The cast was chosen during the last week of winter quarter and rehearsals began immediately. Dan Hawkins, Roger Shaw, Betty Copenhaver, and David Oursland were given the singing leads.
The cast and Mr. Jackson, the director, working together, put in many long and strenuous hours as the operetta gradually took shape. Finally, late in April, the product of a great deal of hard work was presented before the public.
The Chanticleer Club is Western's journalism club. The main project of this organization is the publication of the WESCOLITE, Western's weekly newspaper. The club also publishes a scandal sheet each year for the spring vodvil program. Journalism letters are awarded according to the standard established by the Chanticleers and the Awards committee.
The Matrix is an honorary society whose membership includes only those students who have proved themselves to be outstanding among Western students in the field of journalism. The publication on which these students have worked to earn this honor are the WESCOLITE, the Vodvil Scandal Sheet, and the Chinook.
The WESCOLITE, Western's weekly newspaper, is published through the combined efforts of the Chanticleer club and journalism class and under the supervision of Miss Albertson. WESCOLITE staff members are Chanticleer members who have been elected to their positions by the club. All articles appearing in this publication are written by students, either staff members in their official capacity or outside contributors from the student body.
Previously the WESCOLITE was a bi-monthly publication, but this year the Chanticleers pledged themselves to a little more work in order to produce a somewhat smaller but more timely newspaper, a weekly WESCOLITE.

(S6)The Dr. Sheldon E. Davis Chapter of Future Teachers of America is one of the larger organizations on the Western campus. Forty-eight students are members.
The members have as their goal higher professional and ethical standards. In order to achieve these goals the members study the problems confronting the parent bodies, the Montana Education Association and the National Education Association. In addition they also study teacher ethical conduct, and how to work more effectively with parents, other teachers, and the general public.
The chapter sponsor is Mrs. Zella K. Flores. The officers are Dan Sweeney, president; Harley Iverson, vice president; Janice Munkers, secretary-treasurer; and Mardella Bieber, librarian.
The chapter was represented at the Montana Education Delegate Assembly by Bob Everhard and Dan Sweeney, delegates, and by Ruth Anderson and Betty Smith, alternates.
Dan Sweeney is also state president of Future Teachers. In that capacity he represented the organization at the Ninth Annual Conference of Classroom Teachers which was held at Michigan State Normal College, Ypsilanti, Mich., July 6-18. Dan was elected national treasurer at this conference.
The Library Committee is new on Western's campus. It came into being this year through the recommendation of Mr. Walter McGuire, librarian. Its main purpose is to give students a part in library management. The committee is composed of the librarian, two faculty members, and two students.
A national social fraternity was organized at Western during the past year. The local group, consisting of seven members, is known as the Alpha Epsilon colony of the Tau Kappa Epsilon.
The seven members are Dwayne Roe, Richard Willis, Ted Kato, Joe McDonald, Darrell Ehlert, Hollis Coon, and Ernest Kneeland.
The only sorority on our campus is Kappa Zeta Nu, an honorary, and the oldest organization on the campus. KZN requires above average grades of all its members.

During winter quarter KZN sponsored a coffee hour for members of the faculty, and they also served at a coffee hour during the Reading Workshop. All occasion cards and stationery were sold during this quarter.
For spring quarter, plans include a tea for freshmen, another formal initiation, and an outing.
Officers for the year 1952-53 are Jan Dirks, president, and Irene Hitchens, secretary-treasurer.
The Newman club, organized on our campus in 1950, has for its purpose the promotion of the spiritual needs of Western's Catholic students. It is affiliated with the National Council of Newman clubs.

Club officers are Mike McMahon, president; Ed Spiegle, vice president; Peggy Callan, secretary-treasurer.
Rev. Father Clifford is the club chaplain, and Mrs. Ruth Dillavou is the sponsor.
Student Wives was originally a club for the wives of men students on Western's campus. Today several of the wives whose husbands are no longer attending college have remained as members of the club.
The organization affords an opportunity for student wives to become better acquainted and to have social contact with the college.
Activities of the club this year have included a monthly meeting of the girls and a pot-luck dinner and card party with the husbands included one evening a month. The club provides good times for those married couples living off campus and also gives a feeling of belonging to college life for the girls while the fellows study for their diplomas and degrees.
This year's president is Mrs. James Scofield. Other members of the club are the Mesdames Charles Russell, Robert Harwood, Roy Larson, John McGee, Dale Tash, Myron Axe, Floyd Brown, Jim Corr, Noel Hubber and Henry Meine. The co-sponsors are Mrs. James Womack and Mrs. William Straugh.

We dedicate this section to the memory of our iriend and fellow student, Don Foley, who was one of Western's leading representatives in the field of sports.
Don was a friend of every student and faculty member on the campus; he possessed the unusual combination of an independent spirit and a cooperative and friendly attitude. The halls of Western seem to have lost some of their luster since his untimely passing.
An outstanding athlete and an active member of the "M" Club, Don has left an empty space in the hearts of his comrades that can never be quite filled."M" CLUB—First row: Konon, Hubbor. Kimmol.

Eighteen Bulldog football players earned letters during the 1952 grid season. Western will lose only three members of the squad due to graduation and should, therefore, field a strong team in 1953.
BILL ALLEN, Dillon, halfback, was always a running threat to an opposing team. His weight and speed always spelled trouble for the opposition.
JOHN ALONZO, Florence, played guard; his ability to stop line plunges was outstanding.
JEROME ANDERSON, Hungry Horse, alternated with the guard and tackle positions.
CLAUDE ANKENY, Victor, played a stellar game at defensive end.
BOB DAVIS, Dillon, played a fine game at the defensive guard position. His ability at crushing interference was spectacular.
ROY DAVIS, Dillon, played an outstanding game at center. His weight disadvantage was overcome by his expert blocking ability.
DAN HAWKINS, Dillon, played defensive guard. His ability to plug holes on defense was unsurpassed.

TOM HILLIER, Twin Bridges, very capably alternated between center and line-backer.

FRANK KIBBEE, Valier, showed plenty of spark at the offensive end position. His receiving ability was the best.
RONALD KIMMEL, Ronan, played well at tackle and end. His versatility was very valuable.
JIM KONEN, Butte, played a spectacular game at the tackle position. Opposing ball carriers didn't go far with Jim around.
LARRY McCLUNG, Wilsall, played offensive end and defensive halfback. His ability at both positions was outstanding.
JOE McDONALD, St. Ignatius, ran well at the halfback position. His broken field running was among the best in the conference.
BOB NISSON. Custer, filled the offensive tackle position. His ability to open holes in the opposing line was very spectacular.

The 1953 Western Montana Bulldogs annexed another track trophy as they romped over their conference rivals with a grand total of forty-two points.
Final standings were Western, first; Eastern, second; Carroll, third; Rocky Mountain, fourth; and Montana Mines, fifth.
John McMahon, perhaps the greatest athlete ever to draw a suit at Western, paved the way to victory with his 18 points in the various track and field events.
Dick McGuire and Larry McClung took valuable firsts in their respective events. McGuire set a new discus record with a heave of 138 feet, 6 inches. Moir, Jacobson, Howard, and Vandegrift also earned points to support the total.
The outstanding features of the track meet occurred when Western's relay team, composed of Moir, McClung, Vandegrift, and McMahon set a new record of 3:41.4 in the mile event, and won Western's fifth consecutive relay trophy.
Western should be very proud indeed to have such an unsurpassed record in track. The athletes and Coach Straugh are to be congratulated on the 1952 performance.
Western's relay team, Conference record holders, entered in the National Small College Track Meet in Abilene, Texas, June 6-7, 1952, and emerged with fourth place.
Relay team members were John McMahon, Larry McClung, Floyd Vandegrift, and Harley Iverson, who substituted for Bill Moir.
Dick McGuire, holder of the Montana Collegiate Conference discus record, threw the discus and shot-put.
Claude Ankeny and Ronald Lee represented Western at the Montana Collegiate tennis matches, May 16, at Helena, and emerged with the doubles crown. In the final round of play Western defeated Carroll 6-0, 6-2 in straight sets.
Ankeny also got into the single finals, but was defeated 7-5, 7-5 by the Mines representative.

Western's outlook for the 1953 diamond season is very bright with most of the 1952 members returning for suits.

THE SWIMMING POOL'lAJomen S sAtliietic Association
The Women's Athletic Association is one of the largest and most active organizations on the campus. Its purpose is to provide natural, healthful living, to stimulate individual and group participation in competitive sports, and to encourage good habits of sportsmanship.
Early in the fall of '52 the club sponsored an informal dance following one of the football games. On the night of the Homecoming game between Western and Rocky Mountain College of Billings another dance was held in the Recreation Hall, with lean Ivie reigning as the newly crowned queen.
In November the traditional Sadie Hawkins dance was held with everyone coming dressed to represent some character from fictional Dogpatch. Dan Oerhle was crowned king, and Bettye Morgan queen.
Another feature of this year's WAA activities was the sale, during winter quarter, of sweat shirts and caps in Western colors and stamped with the bulldog and WMCE emblem.
Two initiations were held during the year, climaxed by candlelight ceremonies and the singing of the WAA song. Several pep assemblies were conducted by the club during the past successful basketball season with real enthusiasm being expressed by the students.
Tournaments were held in the various sports throughout the year. The directors and the activity of which they took charge were Sharline Martin and Donna Wright, volleyball; Chris Long, basketball; and Dorothy Jean Haggett, softball. A tournament was also held in badminton.
In the latter part of May. nine WAA girls journeyed to Bozeman to participate in the annual college Play Day.
By competing in the various sports, and by individual activities such as swimming, hiking, bowling and others, the members of the club earn points to entitle them to a winged ''M'' letter.
Officers for the club are Mardella Bieber, president; Chris Long, vice president; Clara Claver, secretary; and Jaime Bailey, treasurer. Mrs. Ruth Greenfield is the WAA sponsor.

Education in the early-day mining camps
Four years after the first school in the Montana territory was opened at Bannack and three years after the first regular public school was started in Virginia City, pioneer teachers in 1867 were providing their students with an education through what today is the eighth grade.
However, any student who completed that training—through the eighth grade—was considered to have a high school education.
Pupils starting in school were assigned to the eighth grade and graduated from the first grade—just the reverse of the present system.
Upon graduation from the first grade students were required to take examinations to obtain a certificate. Tests were given in the home and the cost of the diploma was set at $6. All problems in the test had to be accurately answered before the applicant qualified for the certificate.
Because early-day schools did not have a common textbook of any kind, study in each varied. The commissioners of education —that was the title of the superintendents—however, tried from the first to establish regular courses of study. It was not until 1881 that a uniform text book law was placed on the statute books by the legislature, and not until 1889 that a uniform course of study was made mandatory.
A list of those who attended the early-day educational institutions and who later became prominent in public life in Montana were Austin Gromley, Cascade attorney at one time; Dr. LeRoy Southmayd of Great Falls; Judge Lew L. Callaway, State supreme court, and Judge Lee Word, former associate justice of the high state court.
