CHINOOK 1955 Published by THE JUNIOR CLASS Western Montana College of Education Dillon, Montana VOLUME FORTY-SEVEN (i)Foreword I N A YEAR AT WESTERN we have grown in many ways. Knowledge from books is just one of them. We have made new friends, have learned to accept more responsibility, have learned how to get along with people, and have enlarged our view of life. The Chinook is a bird's eye view of life on Western's campus. It shows pictures of some of the scenes we are accustomed to seeing. The classes, organizations, and sports are also a vital part of it. We hope that this yearbook will bring back memories of the days you spent at Western. (2)DEDICATION We take pleasure in presenting this book to one whom we honor as a friend and as a teacher. It is to him we are indebted for our knowledge of geography, biology, and zoology. The 1955 Chinook staff dedicates its yearbook to an outstanding faculty member at Western Montana College of Education, Mr. Gert Daniels, assistant professor of biological science. (3) MR. GERT DANIELSPresident's Message A COLLEGE EDUCATION should develop your character and make you a better citizen. It should give you a better understanding of international affairs; it should develop habits of scientific thought. A college education should enable you to understand the speech and writings of others and aid you in expressing your own thoughts. It should help you to attain a satisfactory emotional adjustment in this troubled world and give you knowledge that will contribute to your health and happiness. It is in college that you learn how to think straight and come to appreciate art, literature, and music. A college education is worth money. It fits you for a useful and satisfying vocation. It is the door to the professions. College-trained people earn more than others. May college mean for each of you all that it should. Good luck to all of you.

The gifts which are made by the Art Club members are put into the Club Shop to be sold to Western's students. The sale of these articles, which include this year, Bulldog pins, jewelry and card boxes, woven dresser scarves, and chip carved picture frames, besides stationery and yule logs, make the Art Club self-supporting.

The end of spring quarter and another year at Western's Art Club was marked by a banquet and speaker, Mrs. Elizabeth Lochrie, who wore Indian dress and showed several of her paintings of Indians to illustrate her talk.

Tcsh.Western Wins Fifth Track Title Paced by Charles Merrifield and Frank Kibbee, the Western Montana Bulldogs won their fifth consecutive Montana Collegiate Conference Track Title last May. The Western relay team won the mile relay for the seventh straight year in a record breaking time of 3.39:8. The relay team was made up of Merrifield, Kibbee, Hebnes, and Blodgett. The old record was held by Western's 1952 relay team. Charles Merrifield, showing excellent form, ran himself into a new record in the 220 yard dash. Charlie ran his heat in a sizzling 22.4 seconds. Charles Merrifield placed first in the 440 yard dash, second in the 220, fourth in the 100, and ran on the winning relay team. Frank Kibbee placed first in both the 880 and mile runs, tied for third and fourth in the high jump, and ran on the relay. Bob McLeod placed first in the discus and third in the javelin. Doc Romers placed first in the shot put and third in the 220 and 100 yard dashes. Jim Hebnes placed fourth in the 440 yard dash and ran on the record breaking relay. Max Blodgett won third in the high hurdles and also ran on the winning relay. Don Brown placed third in the broad jump and tied for third and fourth in the pole vault. Ron Kimmel won third in the shot put and third in the discus throw. Gary Glassey placed second in the shot put. When the scores were totaled up, it gave Western a 55 to 41 win over second place Rocky Mountain. This was regarded as one of Western's best track years. (85)Western Places Fourth in Baseball In 1954 the Western Bulldogs ended up in fourth place, although they had a better team than they had the last three or four years. They opened their season with a victory over the Mines, then lost four to Ricks College, two in Idaho and two here. They then beat the Butte Mines again and lost three to the Bozeman Bobcats. Entering the four-team play-off, they played their first game with the Rocky Mountain Bears; this saw Western on a short 3-2 score. Pitcher Russell Betz did a fine job until the end of the seventh inning when Rocky's outfielder smacked a double to drive in two runs. Ball was the winning Rocky Mountain pitcher. The second game with the Butte Mines saw Western practically rubbed out in an 11-2 game. Pitcher Bob Hoy allowed the Bulldogs only three hits while the Mines team blasted pitcher, Jim Corr, for nine hits, one of these a three-run homer by first baseman, Harvey Hall. Single Champ Still at Western May 14, 1954, saw Skip Ankeny and Ron Lee fight point for point for the single tennis championship. Skip Ankeny had been the holder of this title for the two preceding years. The first set was won by Ron Lee in a hard-fought battle only to have Skip come back and take the second set. Ron finally edged out Skip in his final effort to regain his crown. Both boys put on a very hard played show. Skip was handicapped slightly by a bandage over his right eye which did somewhat affect his accuracy. Ron Lee will be back this year to defend his title for himself and Western.

The Women's Athletic Association is an organization which meets regularly every Monday night, and it is open to all of the women students at Western. The main purpose is to allow those interested in sport activities to have a night to relax and play. Seasonal round-robin tournaments are held each quarter in the team sports of volleyball, basketball, and softball. These teams are composed of women who have indicated a desire to participate and are arranged to give all an equal chance. In addition, other individual activities are arranged to allow outlets for other interests. Officers are elected each year to carry on the business and functions of the Women's Athletic Association. Other appointive officers are filled by managers of the various activities and these people compose an executive board. These people, with the cooperation of all other members, plan for the annual Freshman Rally, Sadie Hawkins Dance, initiation of new members, Vodvil Skit, and any other affair decided upon by the group. The big project for this year was the planning and being hostess for the Annual Playday for the women from Eastern Montana College of Education, Montana State College and Montana State University. Ten delegates are sent from each school and two sponsors accompany each group. This is a week end where the four colleges are able to meet, play together, and become acquainted with the other women's organizations in the University system. It is a week end of fun and frolic and also a builder of unity and friendship between these four colleges. (89)W. A. A. Sport Night Monday evening, at 7:00, is the time for the weekly W.A.A. major sports night. During fall quarter the major sport played is volleyball. Teams are appointed by the volleyball sports manager. Each team is headed by a captain. Several practice games are played before the round-robin tournament is begun. The teams play for first, second, third, and fourth positions. The team securing first position is rewarded by having its picture featured in the Chinook. Winter quarter finds the girls playing basketball. Teams and captains are appointed. The teams have several opportunities to work together before the tournament begins. Spring and the approaching warm weather produce spring fever for the W.A.A. members, as they do for everyone else. Softball is the major sport played during spring quarter. Girls, not actively participating in the major sports, are kept active by acting as score keepers, time keepers, umpires, and referees.

GREAT FALLS, MONTANA (116)A BRIGHT FUTURE AWAITS US Whether we are conscious of it or not, life is becoming easier . . . considering the amount of physical drudgery that machines do for us today. When we are able to do a job easier and quicker, we can turn our attention to other tasks. That's the way progress is made. Electricity—only 75 years old, practically speaking—has done much to lighten our burdens. Today in Montana the average resident is using three times as much electrical energy as he did a decade ago. We will continue to use more and more in the future, freeing our hands and our minds for greater accomplishments. In Montana electricity is doubly enjoyable—it's abundant and cheap . . . 13.4 per cent under the national average. THE MONTANA POWER COMPANY Superior Service for 42 Years ( 117)KNOW MONTANA The Treasure State's First Schools Montana education may be regarded as having its birth in the Bitter Root Valley, the valley of many historical firsts. Schooling had its beginning in what became this state with the establishment of the St. Mary's Mission in that valley in 1841, first in the secular teaching of the Catholic priests and then in the school set up by Major John Owen, when he took over the Mission in 1850, and established it as a trading post. The school at this fort was for the Indian as well as the white. The first vocational classes, if we can call them such, were taught by the Catholic missionaries in 1846 at St. Mary's when a grist mill and sawmill were built, the first in Montana. They taught carpentry and blacksmithing to the Indians. In 1863 a boarding school was established at St Ignatius Mission in the Flathead country. It had been founded in 1854. There, too, from 1864 on, vocations were taught the Indians. The first public school as such was opened December 12, 1864, in Virginia City, but prior to that time a school, supported by the public subscription of gold dust, was established in 1863 in Bannack. With the opening of the Virginia City school the first school district was formally organized to launch the public school system in Montana. ★ ANACONDA COPPER MINING CO.
