THE JUNIOR CLASS Volume
Western Montana College of Education Forty-Six
WE DEVOTE our yearbook to the State of Montana. In her lie treasures of mineral and agricultural wealth, scenic beauty, and a history, colorful and full of brave and daring deeds. As potential educators of Montana, it is our obligation to develop to the utmost all that Montana offers. This is a great trust, for it puts in our hands the greatest treasure of any state, the children.
Our college represents Montana, for the student body comes from all over the state to share and diffuse knowledge and friendship. We are proud to continue in our state the education which began first in Montana schools.
We have striven to make this book a part of that education. We hope it to be not a passive remembrance, but a constant reminder of the years shared at Western. We hope, moreover, that it will bring about a greater appreciation of God's blessings upon our State, in which there are constant reminders of His handiwork.
(2)THE COLLEGE SONG
Music by Ralph McFadden Words by Vivian Robe
"WESTERN COLLEGE, HERE'S TO YOU"
Thy towers stretching upward Guide us on our way:
Thy green lawns rolling outward Hold us throughout the day.
Each memory brings a thrill Of golden days upon the hill,
Of Montana's fairest valley,
Where our hearts must always rally.
Western College, here's to you,
For to you we'll all be true.
Though we're far away at work or play We shall keep our colors flying still for you So onward through the years we go,
And no one dares to tell us no.
For we're bringing to fame, that dear old name— Western College, here's to you.

MRS. HELEN LUEBBEN
We are proud to dedicate the Chinook this year to a fine teacher and most gracious lady, Mrs. Helen Luebben. Mrs. Lueb-ben has always shown an understanding of students and has developed in her students an appreciation of the power of language whether it be English, French, Spanish or German.
Through her sponsorship, members of Kappa Zeta Nu have been directed in social responsibilities. Her students respect her as a teacher and a friend.
THE CLASS IN GERMANPRESIDENT RUSH JORDAN
that peace has come, we may plan more certainly for the future. The school is growing and the need for trained people is increasing. We are planning for new buildings and new courses to make life on this campus more fruitful and more pleasant.
In addition to an attractive campus a school is known by the attitude of its students and the success of its graduates. In these respects Western is fortunate. It is my hope that we may continue to send out in increasing numbers loyal people of good will who will serve our good state of Montana and share in the great task of defending and preserving the American way of life.

-MARY BRENNAN CLAPPWho's Who
This year five seniors won the honor of representing Western in "Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities" by proving themselves outstanding in leadership in campus activities, scholastic achievement, citizenship, service to the school, and in promise of future usefulness to society.
Two members of the student body were selected last year when they were Juniors to be included on the roll of Who's Who— Agnes Tenneson and Dan Sweeney.

Interest and talent in art are stimulated by the ambitious Art Club under the sponsorship of Mrs. Emerick. Officers during the past year were: Esther Polette, president; Leon Greene, vice president; Patti Morrison, secretary; and Archie Green, treasurer. Dorothy Kneeland was shop treasurer.
Twenty-two were initiated during the year. Each quarter the initiates present a program in keeping with an art theme. To keep membership in the club one must work 100 hours per quarter; the purpose is to supply the gift shop with articles to sell to students.
The gift shop is the basic means of support for the club, promoting the sale of art projects during various seasons of the year . . . Christmas candles, decorated with red and green holly, candle holders, mantle pieces . . . the traditional bulldog pins during basketball season . . . copper etchings for graduation gifts . . . Western stationery and Charles Russell stationery.
One project in which the entire community was interested was the exhibit of Julio Ravella's paintings and sculpturing.
Club meetings were conducted not only in the club room, but also in the homes of art enthusiasts. Mrs. Helen Dresen, a club member, served a delicious shrimp dinner ... a color slide was shown preceding an evening at Mrs. Emerick's home. A visit to Mrs. John Orr's home ... a lunch in the home of Mrs. Leon Greene ... a talk on Mexican art by Vera Schulz ... a picnic ... a banquet at the Diamond Bar Inn in the spring . . . these rounded out the activities for the year.
Guests during the year were Mrs. Bierrum, Mrs. Margaret Orr, Mrs. W. Greenwood, Mr. Ryburn, Miss Mathews, Leila Zaru, Mrs. L. Greene, Mrs. Archie Green, and Mrs. A. Patton.
Esther Polette and Jim Corr received the two brush emblems for outstanding art work during the year.
In 1911 a national honorary art fraternity was formed to promote art, to weld a strong band between art students of various colleges, and to produce a "Sketch Book" which gives members of this group a chance to see their work in print.
Chapters of Kappa Pi are installed only in recognized colleges, universities, and art schools which meet national standards. Western boasts of the only chapter in the state.
Jim Corr, president of Western's Chapter, sent his water color, ''Behind the White Cafe," to the National Exhibit of Kappa Pi held in San Antonio, Texas.
Jim Corr, Esther Polette - secretary-treasurer, and recent initiates - Carolyn McFadden, Vera Schulz, Helen Dresen, and Tsugio Ikeda are the members on Western's campus. All were recommended by their sponsor, Mrs. Emerick.
The Chanticleer Club is the journalism organization on the Western campus. The Wescolite is the main project of this club. Also the Chanticleers publish the scandal sheet for each year's Vodvil. Journalism letters are awarded to members according to certain standards which are established by the Chanticleers and the Awards Committee. Agnes Tenneson, Dan Sweeney, and Charles Russell were awarded letters this year.
Officers for 1953-54 are: Agnes Tenneson, president; Charles Russell, vice president; and Janice Munkers, secretary-treasurer. Miss Genevieve Albertson is sponsor.
Matrix is an honorary society within the Chanticleers for members who are outstanding in the field of Journalism. The publications on which these students work to gain this honor are the Wescolite, the Vodvil Scandal Sheet, and the Chinook.
Announcement of coming events, publication of items of interest to students, and a promotion of an awareness of world affairs are the tasks of the Wescolite, Western's weekly newspaper.
The staff of the Wescolite is composed of Chanticleer members and the journalism class under the sponsorship of Miss Albertson.
It is the aim of the Wescolite to serve as an unbiased and accurate organ of Western's thoughts and events.

During the last year a Christmas concert consisting of numbers by the chorus and by vocal and piano soloists was given. Vocal solos were presented by Dorothy Kneeland, Jacqueline Armour, Betty Copenhaver, and Helen Vegter. Piano soloists were James McGrath, Agnes Tenneson, Ann Marie Flannigan, and Carolyn McFadden. Accompanists were Donna Johnson and Ann Marie Flannigan.
Highlighting musical performances last year was the presentation of "Down in the Valley," a folk operetta of the deep South.

The International Relations Club is a campus organization for those interested in national and international aflairs. Club members study and discuss world and domestic problems and policies.
The club brings speakers to the college to report on current events. This year the club presented the Reverend Arthur Lord, Father F. X. Lechner, Robert Hall, and Miss Ingeborg Klotz of Germany.
The club officers for the year were Roy Larson, president and Helen Vegter, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Howard Leslie is sponsor.
The library committee, inaugurated during 1952-53, is serving a good purpose on Western's campus, giving students a role in library management.
The committee is composed of Mr. McGuire, librarian, two faculty members and four representatives from the classes.
Every second Wednesday of the month, under the direction of Betty Kibbee as president, and Loma McCormick as secretary, the student wives meet for a social gathering, to plan for the school year, to discuss the five new babies that have been bom in the past year, and to plan for a spring banquet in honor of their husbands.
Western Montana College of Education has as its laboratory school the public elementary schools in Dillon. And every graduate at some time is there for at least a half day for one quarter.
There are eight critic teachers, one in each grade from the first through the eighth, who supervise and guide the student teachers.
Mr. Lawrence Walker is the superintendent and director of the training school. Gladys Forester, Mrs. Isabell Lasich, Mrs. Martha Nelson. Virginia O'Reilly, Mrs. Ruth Packer, Elizabeth Satter, Mrs. Helen Grilley, and James Womack are the critic teachers now working with Western Montana College.
College and training school work together in many ways. College classes often visit the training school for observation. The play presented at assembly Wednesday, March 21. represents one of the cooperative projects of training school and college. The Children's Play class at the college wrote the play, "Fairy Foot," from a story in a second grade reader. Then they went to the training school and directed the play in Mrs. Grilley's fifth grade. Janice Mun-kers, Annie Walker, Neola Hatch, Hilda Guldseth and Nell Rickner were the directors of the play.

John Sebastian and Dorothy Jar-nac combined their talents for the first concert of the season. Mr. Sebastian proved that the harmonica was just as valid a solo instrument as the violin or piano. His harmonica music was enjoyed by everyone. Miss Jamac, an interpretive dancer, also charmed the audience with her clever dancing techniques.
A rare treat was given concert goers, when Carol Brice, an outstanding contralto, presented a program that included operatic arias, folk songs and Negro spirituals.
Conrad Thibault, a baritone who likes to sing, presented the third Community Concert. His charm and artistry were enjoyed to the utmost by all those people present.
The Paganini Quartet presented an enjoyable evening of music on string instruments. The opportunity to hear a concert of this type comes very seldom, and it was one of the outstanding concerts of the year.

(71)Western Meets Carroll lor Homecoming Game
A Lino Plungo
The Gridiron Season
Western Montana College battled through the 1953 grid season with a team composed of four returning lettermen, two men who had lettered at the School of Mines, and a host of frosh stalwarts. Although the team maintained a grand fighting spirit, their inexperience and a strong array of teams in the conference proved too much for them.
The Bulldogs opened the season with a non-conference game at Missoula. They were defeated 25-0 by the Cubs of Montana State University.
Carroll College of Helena came to Vigilante Field for the Western Homecoming game and downed the scrappy Bulldog eleven 31-0. Western drove deep into the Saint's territory several times but was unable to score against the bigger, more experienced team.
A powerful aggregation of Orediggers from the School of Mines handed the Bulldogs their second conference defeat, 41-13, at Butte.
Western's team hit the peak of their season at Laurel when they tangled with the highly touted Rocky Mountain Bears and came within one point of an upset. Both teams scored seven points in the first half. The Bears managed to break away for two touchdowns in the third period, giving them a 20-7 advantage. Western's offense began to click in the final quarter, as the Bulldogs made two touchdowns but failed to convert the extra points needed to win. The final score was Rocky 20, Western 19.
In the last game of the season Western Montana played the Yellow Jackets of Eastern at Dillon. The only scoring march of the entire game gave Eastern a 6-0 win over the Bulldogs.
Western's Bulldogs had no seniors on the squad this year, but by virtue of their opponents losing much of their scoring punch through graduation of their senior lettermen they should have a more promising grid season in '54. Several men who have not been eligible previously will bolster Western's football team next fall. They are Casey Keltz. Dick Pitman and "Doc" Romers.
Larry Anderson, playing his first year of college football, showed promise as a shifty halfback.
Max Blodgett, at quarterback, used passes and end-runs to make yardage for the Bulldogs.
Don Brown, a swift, deceptive halfback, was always a scoring threat and will be needed by next year's team.
Richard Davenport played a stellar game at tackle spot. Western hopes to see him back next fall for another season.
Ron Eliason, a very capable center, was a welcome addition to the Bulldog squad and we hope to see him back next fall.
Bill lackson showed a lot of ability at the end position. His pass-catching and defensive strength will bolster our next team.
Ted Kato, our all-conference guard, showed by plenty of spirit and drive how he earned that honor. Ted earned his third letter in football at WMCE this year and we will have him for one more season.
Howard Keneady was outstanding on the Bulldog squad, running from the halfback slot. We hope to see him back next season.
Frank Kibbee maintained a never-say-die spirit that was inspirational to his teammates. He played a stellar game at end on offense and defense.
Don Kimmel played well at center and showed up well in the Bulldog line.
Jim Konen filled a tackle spot on the Bulldog squad very capably. His vicious blocking and tackling stopped opponents cold.
Terry Lindquist played guard for the Bulldogs. A freshman, Terry showed a lot of ability and will be valuable to the squad in the future.
Jack Meskimen, another frosh, will be welcomed back to the squad next fall. He ran hard and well as a fullback for the team.
Ralph McCormick was another line-cracking fullback who showed plenty of drive and spirit when the going got rough.
Rodger McCormick at end position was valuable to the squad for his defensive ability. This was his and his brother's first year of college ball.
Bob McLeod starred as a halfback for the Bulldog team. He was outstanding as a ball carrier and passer and was one of the most promising frosh players.
Jim Monger gained experience and showed up well as a guard for the Bulldogs this season.
John Pearson also played guard and will be back for another season in 1954.
Charles Merrifield, who played for Mines previously, bolstered the squad with his line-punching ability as a fullback.
Ed Spiegle, another former Mines player, played at the tackle spot and was a stalwart lineman for Western.
Jack Smith, also a tackle, stopped line plunges and played well.
Jack Young, a letterman, was back for the 1953 season. He played very well at end and was excellent on defense.

Western Montana Bulldogs finished the 1953-54 basketball season in a second place tie with Rocky Mountain College in Billings.
The Bulldogs, with only two returning lettermen, and the rest of the squad consisting of Freshmen and Sophomores, was one of the youngest teams ever to play in Western's history. The Bulldogs played fast, aggressive ball and proved their great ability as they downed their opponents to place second. The fighting spirit and the will-to-win attitude displayed by the squad was the determining factor in their victories and should promise a bright future for Western basketball in years to come.
Western opened its conference play at Helena where the Carroll Saints came out on top with an 81-68 victory. The Bulldogs then journeyed to Havre to dim the Northern Lights by a score of 59-55.
The Bulldogs marked up their second conference victory when they traveled to Butte to defeat the Mines 79-67.
The first home game was with the Carroll Saints and they proved too much for Western and emerged with a 73-60 victory.
The season's best was recorded as the Bulldogs entertained Rocky Mountain Bears and topped them by a score of 80-60.
The Bulldogs' recorded conference victories numbered four as they played host to the Montana School of Mines and dumped them 79 to 67.
The Bulldogs next entertained Eastern Montana Yellow Jackets and left the floor on the short end of a 68-76 score.
Western gathered forces and traveled east to invade Eastern Montana Yellow Jackets at Billings. The Bulldogs avenged themselves by dropping Eastern from the victory column in a 66-55 win. The next night Rocky Mountain of Billings played host and the Bulldogs lost a thriller to the Bears by a 57-59 score.
In the final conference game the Bulldogs displayed their strength and routed the Northern Lights 95-55 in the greatest scoring spree of the season.
BULLDOGS ON ALL-CONFERENCE SQUAD

6 4Western Wins College Track Title
The Bulldogs edged out Rocky Mountain of Billings to win the Montana Collegiate Conference Track Title in the 1953 Spring Sports Carnival at Helena.
This made the fourth consecutive year for Western to hold this title and the sixth consecutive year for the college to win the mile relay trophy.
Dick McGuire of Western broke both the discus and shot put records to pace the Bulldogs in individual scoring honors. McGuire threw the discus 150 feet in a practice try but only 143 feet 9 inches in actual competition. It was good for a new conference record as he beat his own record of last year by 5 feet 3 inches. McGuire also topped the conference shot put record with a push of 43 feet 1 Va inches.
Western smashed another conference record in the mile relay when the team of McClung, Kibbee, Blodgett and Merrifield was timed at 3:41.6. This time was .2 seconds faster than that set by Billings in 1938 but fell short of the record, set by Western's 1952 relay team, not yet recorded.
Dick McGuire placed first in both discuss and shot put. Dick also tied for second in the pole vault.
Charles Merrifield won first in the 440, second in the 100, and ran on the relay team.
Larry McClung placed second in the 440 and 800-yard dashes, and ran anchor man on the relay team.
Frank Kibbee placed second in the mile run, fourth in the 880, and ran on the relay team.
Max Blodgett placed third in high hurdles, third in low hurdles, and ran on the relay team. Max also placed fourth in the mile run.
Roger Shaw placed fourth in the high hurdles, Barclay Schulz third in the discus throw, Ron Kimmel third in the shot put, and Dick Kerr fourth in the 220-yard dash. Bob McGuire placed second in the high jump and fourth in the shot put.
Altogether these Bulldogs totaled up 48 Vi points to become the 1953 Montana Collegiate track champions.
In early season the Bulldogs won first place in a three-cornered invitational meet staged here at Vigilante Field with Rocky Mountain of Billings and the Mines of Butte, the other participants.
They next journeyed to Bozeman and won third in an invitational meet with the Bobcats of Montana State and other top Rocky Mountain and Montana Collegiate entries. This season is regarded as one of the greatest in Western's track history.
Western opened the 1953 season with a trip to Rexburg, Idaho, to tangle with the Ricks College nine. The Bulldogs dropped the double-header 8-0 and 4-1, both being 5-inning games.
The next test was at Bozeman where the Bobcats outclassed our team to hand us a 25-2 defeat.
Conference play opened in Butte with the School of Mines and Western edged by for a 5-4 victory. The last two games with the Mines put Western on the short end of the tally, 8-4 and 18-5.
The boys did not lack enthusiasm, but they did lack experience. With three previous lettermen back, they did shape up to a real threat before the close of the season. Men earning letters on the diamond last spring were I. Corr, J. Konen, T. Kato, D. Kerr, F. Kibbee, C. Soha, C. Russell, J. Hebnes, and J. Drinville.
Western Wins Tennis Championship
Claude Ankeny and Ron Lee defended their tennis doubles crown at the Montana Collegiate Spring Carnival at Helena. They defeated the Carroll College entry 6-0, 6-2 in the final round of play. This makes the second consecutive year Ron and Skip have held the Montana Collegiate doubles crown.
In pre-tournament play they defeated the Mines in the Western Division Playoff at Butte.
Skip Ankeny defeated the Mines entry 6-3, 7-5 in pre-tournament playoff for tennis singles and then went on to cop the Montana Collegiate tennis singles crown by downing Eastern 6-3, 6-1 at the Spring Sport Carnival at Helena.
The boxing team that was formed at Western this year was an outgrowth of the class. The purpose of the class was to offer to interested men an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of boxing.
Ten men turned out for the team that v as coached by a former Navy boxer, Max Blodgett. The boys showed interest and fine spirit at all times.

(93)Women's Athletic Association
The Women's Athletic Association is one of the most active organizations on Western's campus. It provides activities for all girls who are interested in athletics and encourages good sportsmanship.
In November the organization sponsored the Sadie Hawkins dance with everyone coming dressed as some colorful character from Dogpatch. Hilda Guldseth as Marryin' Sam and Esther Polette as Mammy Yokum were crowned king and queen of Dog-patch.
Impressive candlelight initiations were held twice during the year, at which many new members joined the club.
The sale of sweat shirts and caps in Western's colors and stamped with the bulldog and WMCE emblem was another feature of the past year.
Every Monday, the WAA sponsored sport night. Tournaments were held in volleyball, basketball, and baseball throughout the year with student directors for each activity.
During spring quarter ten girls and Mrs. Ruth Greenfield, sponsor, went to Missoula to participate in the annual College play day.
By participating and competing in such sports as basketball, baseball, swimming, bowling, hiking, and others, members may earn points which entitle them to the winged "M" letter.
Officers for the club this year were: Marian Conley, president; Donna Johnson, vice president; Frances Grubb, secretary; and Ruth Lagergren, treasurer. Mrs. Ruth Greenfield is sponsor.

It's a Lot Easier Than It Was
Electricity certainly has done a lot to make the world bright and shiny, and our daily life easier.
Just 75 years ago Thomas E. Edison invented the first incandescent electric light bulb. Since then electricity has been pushing back the gloom over a greater and greater area of the world. And we use electricity in hundreds of other ways, too.
That's what young people are coming into ... a world of brightness and mechanization. You have the tools to make a fine life.

Origin of Some Montana Names (Title)
Helena—According to the Helena Historical directory of 1879 the city of Helena was named by John Somerville for his former home of St. Helena, Minn. It was voted by the early citizens to drop the prefix, Saint.
Wibaux—The town was named for Pierre Wibaux, son of a wealthy Parisian silk manufacturer who settled in this area in the 80's. Pierre, in his heyday, was the largest cattle operator in the world, owning as many as 65,000 head.
Bannack—This pioneer community was named after the Bannock (correct) Indian tribe and became Montana's first city, a boom camp roaring with a population of thousands.
Missoula—The Garden City was named for the broad river that flows through the center of town. The river was named by the Indians, "Missoula” meaning sparkling water.
Three Forks—This town, steeped in historic lore and legend, gets its name from the convergence of the "three forks," the Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson rivers.
Wolf Point—How it was named—great numbers of wolf pelts were stacked along the Missouri banks awaiting shipment on early-day steamboats to the St. Louis market.
Fort Benton—The name honors an early-day champion of fur interests, Sen. Thomas Benton of Missouri, and was so named in 1846 by the American Fur Company.
