V T, For Reference Not to be taken from this room CHINOOK Published by THE JUNIOR CLASS Western Montana College of Education Dillon, Montana Volume FORTY-EIGHT d)Foreword THIS YEAR THE CHINOOK celebrates its fiftieth anni-versary. During these fifty years there have been many changes at Western. New buildings have been built; new courses have been added to the curriculum; the size of the student body has increased; even the name of the school has been changed; but the main function of the school has not changed. Now. as fifty years ago, the main purpose of the school is to train teachers to educate the youth of the country; and we are confident that in the next fifty years, no matter what other physical changes may take place, Western still will be training teachers of as high a standard as today. We would like this fiftieth anniversary issue to be something more than just a record of the events of the past year. We want to give you, in addition, a look into the history of Western as well as a glance toward the future growth of the school. (3)THE TRUTH SHALL 'MAKE YOU FREE- 1 •« i There is no Irigate like a book To lake us lands away. —Emily Dickinson mMiss Genevieve Albertson DEDICATION We are grateful for this opportunity to show a small amount of appreciation to the one whose unselfish contribution of work and time has done so much to make this book, and other yearbooks in the past, possible. It is with much pleasure and pride that we dedicate this fiftieth anniversary number of the Chinook to our teacher, sponsor, and friend—Miss Genevieve Albertson. (5)(6) President Jordan stops a moment to look across Western's lovely campus.Rush Jordan, President President's Message This is a good New Year for Western. Enrollment is higher than it has been for twenty years. The new department of secondary education is developing satisfactorily. Several people are working toward the Master's degree. An ambitious program of extension work is under way. The new building program is progressing as fast as lending agencies can operate. The outlook for Western was never better. Always we look ahead. I wish for all Western students many good years ahead in college and in teaching. (7)Montana State Board of Education Left to right: Mrs. F. H.

First, the aim is to expose the members to as much of the fine art of the world as possible through talks, exhibits, and picture reproductions. Second, to give students pleasure in doing art work by making gifts for the club shop, which is its major means of subsistence. Third, to learn to work together on projects for the good of the group. Fourth, to develop leadership through chairmanships of worthwhile committees. Fifth, to encourage social activity. The gift shop, which has been developed over the years, ties itself with the abilities of the group. Usually, there are planned three or four sales during the year. The sale before Christmas included Ring Toss Games, enameled jewelry, felt mittens with original applied designs, and eyeglass cases. The Bulldog pin sale is held winter quarter to coincide with the athletic season. Bulldogs have been designed and made by the club. The graduate sale is held spring quarter. The Art Club assists with the spring all-school exhibit, which is representative of the work of all the art classes throughout the year. Last autumn the club aided the Kappa Pi in sponsoring an all-state children's exhibit. Speakers this year were Mrs. Dillavou, who discussed the art and architecture of Rome; Ann Larabee, who gave a picture talk of the art she liked best at the Chicago Art Institute; Mrs. Emerick, who showed her button collection and particularly pointed out the designs and color; Miss Mathews and Miss Gelhaus who talked on their recent trip. Guests through the year were Mrs. Bierrum—an honorary member, Mrs. John Orr, and Mrs. Dillavou. Five members have earned the two brush emblem: Joyce Boehm, Ann Larabee, Nedine McCamant, Verna Jenkins, and Juanita Sweeney. Guard pins were presented to Ann Larabee and Joyce Boehm. Joyce Boehm, chairman for the scrapbook, has collected and arranged material and finished the scrapbook. Ann Larabee designed the cover. The Art Club is under the sponsorship of Mrs. Emerick. Officers during the past year were president, Ann Larabee; vice president, Joyce Boehm; treasurer, fall quarter, Ed Jursnich; treasurer, winter and spring quarter, Frances Fordik; secretary, Betty Stevenson; shop chairman, Verna Jenkins. Kappa Pi is the oldest National Art Honorary Fraternity among those in today's colleges. It was organized in 1911 to promote an active interest in the field of art. Western became the only charter member in Montana in 1937 when it was granted the Omicron Chapter of Kappa Pi. This year the members sponsored a graphic arts exhibit from Montana State College in Bozeman. Members at Western this year are Nedine McCamant, president; Helen Dresen, vice president; Ann Larabee, secretary-treasurer; Joyce Boehm, and Juanita Sweeney. Mrs. Emerick, a life member of Kappa Pi, is the sponsor. Pi (49)Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship The purpose of this international organization, open to students of all faiths, is to deepen and strengthen the spiritual lives of the members by means of Bible study, prayer, group discussion, and singing. The officers this year were David Oursland, president; Elsie Johnson, vice president; Virginia Nelson, secretary-treasurer; Marilyn Gaines and Audrey Jemberg, devotional co-chairmen; Mary Hoge, social chairman; Elizabeth McFadden, pianist; Jim Fitzpatrick, song leader. Miss Evelyn Mikkelsen and Mr. John Garry were sponsors. Among the activities this year were two week-end retreats with other Montana chapters of Inter-Varsity; Christmas caroling sponsored jointly with the Newman Club; several social gatherings; talks by Dillon ministers; a film, "Songs of Fanny Crosby"; a meeting on the World Day of Prayer in cooperation with the Dillon churches; the keeping of a bulletin board in the main hall of the administration building; the learning of the books of the Bible and a brief study of the content of each. Newman Club The Newman Club, an organization of Catholic students of the college, has for its purpose the promotion of the spiritual needs of the students. It is affiliated with the National Council of Newman Clubs. The club meets twice monthly, and the activities sponsored by the club are discussion and talks by the members and their chaplain.

Besides discussion periods, the club made a study of Woodrow Wilson, and some members wrote on the National IRC essay, "A World Safe for Mankind—Decisions USA."

(61)Ruddigore or the Witch's Curse "Ruddigore," the eighth full-length opera by Gilbert and Sullivan is a parody of the domestic melodrama so popular in 1887, the time the opera was first produced. The story of the opera is about an early Baronet of Ruddigore who had a witch burned at the stake. She cursed him and all his line, dooming them to commit at least one crime a day, under penalty of dying in unspeakable agony. Dame Hannah narrates this legend to a chorus of professional bridesmaids who are gathered around Rose Maybud, an attractive damsel who has not yet found a husband. Robin Oakapple, a young farmer, is in love with Rose, but is too bashful to declare his passion. The bridesmaids are eager to arrange a marriage. The plot develops its varied complications, resolving in a satirical happy ending. Dramatis Personae Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd (Robin Oakapple)—Jack Bogut; Richard Dauntless (his foster brother)—Donald Rosencrans; Sir Despard Murgatroyd, of Ruddigore—Dave Oursland; Old Adam Goodheart (Robin's faithful servant)—Gordon Galloway; Rose Maybud (a village maiden)—Myrtle White; Mad Margaret— Elaine Michelotti; Dame Hannah (Rose's Aunt)—Elizabeth McFadden; Zorah (bridesmaid)—Deanna Mack; Ruth (bridesmaid)—Carla Salmonsen. Ghosts were members of WMCE faculty and Carl Hollensteiner. Bridesmaids, officers, and villagers were: Donna Ballantyne, Evelyn Eddy, Lorraine Foss, Alma Gideon, Marilyn Gaines, Blanche Heller, Sandra Holm, Joan Hutchinson, Peggy Keyes, Joan McGrath, Fred McNellis, Virginia Nelson, Shirley Kalland, Shirley Purusich, Maxine Viche, Edith Young, George Parrett, Mary Hoge, Flora Stillings, Kizzie Brown, Audrey Jemberg.

(63)Community Concerts Edwin Steffe, baritone, with Collins Smith at the piano, appeared in the first concert of the season. The talented artists presented a very delightful program of music and song. Vienna Academy Chorus The Vienna Academy Chorus, a most outstanding group of singers composed of twelve female voices and twelve male voices, presented a most enjoyable program. Each member of the chorus was an instrumentalist as well as a singer. The chorus sang sacred choral music selections, and during the second part of the concert, the members of the chorus drossed in their native Austrian dress to sing Austrian folk songs. The third part of the program foatured the Vienna that has been so romanticizod by Americans. As a gesture of goodwill to tho United Statos, over half of the program was sung in English. Rey and Gomez The rhythms of both tho old world and tho new were brought forth in the fiery Spanish and Latin American dancers, Federico Roy and Pilar Gomez—a brilliant new dance team which provided an evening of supromo entertainment. Richard Gregor, an accomplished pianist, presented the last community concert of the season. This talented artist played a most enjoyable program. (64)WHO'S WHO Four students won the honor this year of representing Western in "Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities." These students proved themselves to be outstanding in scholastic achievement, leadership and participation in campus activities, dependability, personality, and in promise of future usefulness to society. Joyco Boehm, a senior majoring in art. comes from Livingston. She returned to Wostern this year after teaching in Reno, Nevada. Joyce is vice president of the Art Club and a member of Kappa Pi; sho has belonged to WAA and Newman Club also. Joyco is a very dependable and hard working student. Mrs. Helen Drosen, Cut Bank, has been active in many organizations. She is president of Chanticleers, and is a member of the Chinook staff, the V escolito staff, and Gargoyles. Sho is known for her friendliness and willingness to bo of help whor-ever it is needed. Mrs. Dresen is a sonior, majoring in English. Robort Facincani, a junior majoring in social studios, comes from Butte. Bob is president of the Gargoyles, the college dramatics club. Ho is the editor of the 1956 Chinook. Bob is an active loader in school activities, and he has boon consistently on the honor roll. Jim Fitzpatrick, Hot Springs, is also a junior majoring in social studios. Jim is this year's student body president, and it was through his guidance that Wostorn experienced the most successful homecoming in its history. Ho is very interested in athlotics, and is a letterman in football and tiack. Jim is also a member of the student activity committee. He is probably best known for his very pleasing personality and his friendlinoss to ovoryono. (65]VODVIL Last year the name of the show was changed from Vodvil to College Varieties, but changing the name did not in any way alter the caliber of the entertainment. The various school organizations and clubs contributed their share toward making the College Varieties of 1955 an entertainment success.

Now that we are at the end of the academic term, let us take a look back over what has been accomplished during the past year. The school has started to expand physically. Last summer the eight acres of land directly to the east of the campus were purchased; this land will be used for the practice football field. On the site of the old practice field a new student apartment building and student union will be constructed. These buildings should be completed sometime before the next fall quarter. At the start of the 1955 summer session the graduate division was inaugurated, and a program of graduate studies in the education field was started. This program will allow teachers, both elementary and secondary, the opportunity to continue their work in education toward a Master's degree in teaching and administration. Western for the first time in its long and successful administration added last summer quarter the program leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education. New courses were added to take care of the needs of this new program. This latest improvement should prove a major factor in enlargement of enrollment and increase in prestige among Montana Colleges. (71)A Big Year at Western A wide variety of night classes was offered during the past year giving an opportunity to those who could not attend school during the day a chance to continue and further their education. Extension courses were also offered, in Butte and Twin Bridges, with instructors from Western conducting the courses in the evenings and on weekends. The Dillon Public Schools again this year did a splendid job of serving as a laboratory for Western's elementary student teachers. Here the prospective teachers could put into actual practice what they had learned only theoretically in the college classroom. For those students working toward a degree in Secondary Education the opportunity has been offered for them to do their directed teaching in co-operating high schools throughout the state. Last year, after several years absence, debate again appeared at Western. The debate team took part in several intercollegiate debates and for first-year debaters made a creditable showing against more experienced competition. We have given you here the highlights of why this last year was such a big year at Western. These are just a few of the reasons why it was a great one. There are just as many other reasons as there are students and faculty members; for each one has done his share toward making the past year the successful year that it was.

The caliber of Western's team seemed stronger than in the previous few years, yet the competition in the Montana Collegiate Conference had improved that much more. In Western's opening game against the Carroll College fighting Saints, the Bulldogs showed a spurt of perfection by jumping to a 6 to 0 lead, scoring the first time they obtained possession of the ball. But the stronger manpower of the Saints proved too much as they pushed over three touchdowns before the first half ended. They continued their dominance in the second half, scoring three more times to defeat the Bulldogs 41 to 6. The second game saw Western fight a much larger Westminster team on even terms the first half at Salt Lake City. The bigger and more powerful line of the Parsons provided the difference as they rolled over the Black and Orange in the second half to win 46 to 0. Western's Homecoming game was spoiled by the Eastern Montana Yellow Jackets from Billings. The first half provided the fans with action galore, and the Yellow Jackets left the field with a slight edge, 15 to 12. Western scored first to start the second half, but their lead was short lived as the determined Eastern team came back to win by a final score of 22 to 18. The winless Bulldogs next met the Orediggers of the Montana School of Mines on a snow covered field in Butte. The condition of the field slowed the offense and turned the game into a battle of the defenses. The Western line proved the stronger of the two and provided the team with its only victory of the season, 8 to 6. For the final game of the season the tired and injury-riddled Western squad traveled to Billings to meet the league-leading Rocky Mountain College. The Bears rolled over the Bulldogs 59 to 9, clinching the conference title. Ned l-aird, Western's stalwart center from Butte, was the only Bulldog to make the All-Conference team. Ned was honored by an Honorable Mention selection.

Homecoming Queen Delores Anderson, a nineteen-year-old Freshman from Butte, was crowned Homecoming Queen for 1955 at the half-time ceremony of the annual Homecoming football game. Her attendants were Pat Noel, Ruth Grandy, Suzanne Dansie, and Shirley Moody. (80)TM»S U S C A57TRKJ ttUI UTS DO IT AMLeft to right, kneeling: D. Keltz, B. McCleod, G. Cooper, R. Scott, D. Pitman. L.

What better way can the success of our basketball team be expressed? The Bulldogs came out victorious in the Montana Collegiate Conference with a nine won and one lost record. Spirit and teamwork were the factors that brought the team victory after victory throughout the season. The team proved its right to wear the conference crown by coming back strong after suffering their only setback with four straight victories. Top performance when the chips were down was the caliber of which our 1955-56 team was made. The ability of each individual was shown when the time came for the All-Conference selections. All of Western's starting five were given berths upon this mythical team. Keltz, Pitman, and Cooper were all first team selections, Anderson and Scott being chosen second team and honorable mention, respectively. Don Keltz was also honored by the Davis Motor Co. of Dillon by receiving their trophy for the outstanding player of this year's team. Due credit must also be given to the reserves. It was Western's strong bench power which helped the team accumulate a season's record of 20 wins against 8 defeats. The boys of the bench came through time after time with brilliant performances. Our hats are off to the whole team and to Coach Bill Straugh for a highly successful season. (83)INDIVIDUAL RECORD FOR FIRST 25 GAMES Field Goals Free Throws Name Attempts Made Pet.

The J. V.'s showed steady improvement throughout the season and should provide the varsity with adequate talent in the next few years. For the first time in many years a successful Intramural Basketball program was carried out at Western. The league was composed of seven teams and provided competitive sport for over fifty men. With such a beginning a larger and stronger league is predicted for next year. Here we give praise to the unheralded competitors at Western—The Cheer Leaders. Not enough can be said in thanks to these Western Co-Eds for the time and energy they give toward the success of our sports program, for no team is stronger than the force who support it.

The team of McCollum, Doohan, English, and Kibbee won the mile relay to give the Bulldogs their eighth consecutive victory in that event. Bill Bennett scored nine points to lead the well-balanced Western point makers. Western won four firsts besides the mile relay and scored in every event but the pole vault. Western's "thin-clads" also won their own Invitational Meet early in May over the other Conference teams. The Western team placed second to Ricks College of Idaho at the Ricks Invitational Meet held at Rexburg, Idaho. Other results were Weber College third, Idaho State fourth, and Westminster fifth. Frank Kibbee and Joe Doohan represented Western at the N. A. I. A. meet in Abilene, Texas. Both boys did a commendable job. Though not placing too high among some of the nation's outstanding trackmen, they both turned in their best times of the season for the mile run.

This year the club had a full schedule and a very successful year. WAA began the year with a party for all the freshman girls. At this party the new girls became acquainted with each other. It was a gala evening of new friends, fun, and food. Next came the traditional Sadie Hawkins dance, which proved to be a great success. The guys and gals all turned out in full costume to represent some character from fictional Dogpatch. Gladys Goldsworthy and Lester Paro were crowned queen and king of Dogpatch. During the winter quarter, WAA sponsored the sale of sweat shirts stamped with the bulldog and WMCE emblem. Every Monday is WAA sport night. A program of volleyball, basketball, and softball contributes to the enjoyment of the members. Tournaments were held in the various sports throughout the year with a student director for each activity. Candlelight initiations were held twice during the year at which time many new members joined the club. (95)WAA By competing in the various sports, and in individual activities, such as ice skating, swimming, and bowling, and by being a member of the club for five quarters, the members earn points to entitle them to a winged "M" letter. During the spring quarter a group of ten girls and two sponsors attended the annual playday. This is an event sponsored by the WAA organizations in the units of the greater University of Montana. This year Eastern was hostess. Officers for the year are Pat McDonald, president; Joan McGrath, vice president; Shirley Kalland, secretary; Marlene Savich, treasurer.

When the 1956 Chinook is read fifty years from now, we hope it will be enjoyed as much as we have enjoyed the 1906 book. On March 12 we had a letter from Alma E. McQueen (formerly Alma Earnest) reminding us that 1956 was the fiftieth anniversary of the Chinook. Mrs. McQueen, who lives at 2210 Hughes Street, Amarillo, Texas, was business manager of the 1906 book. Editorial Staff of The Chinook Elizabeth M. Snook. - Editor in Chief Marcia E. Thornton, ....

The Teacher Was Not Far Behind As the prospectors moved north from gold discoveries at Virginia City and Bannack, building mining camps in gulches and canyons, the "professors" were not far behind. Education, following the trailblazers, moved into the Butte mining district in 1865, into Silver Bow, and the next year into Butte. The pioneers trudged from the Virginia City district where schools had been started in 1863 at Bannack and in 1864 at Virginia City. Unlike the schools in the other early-day mining camps the first Butte School featured a course in dancing. That came about because the first regular teacher, Colonel Woods, was not only a competent educator but a cultivated musician. He took pride in teaching the young how to dance as well as to read and write. Woods, however, did not teach the first classes in Butte. He was late in getting to the mining camp to fill the assignment and Thomas C. Porter, drawn earlier to Butte by gold, filled in for him. Porter had taught the previous year at Silver Bow. He was experienced, having taught school in Illinois before coming west. The first school in Butte, under Woods and taught during the winter of 1866-67, had a short term. However the next year education did get a foothold in a school opened by William Haynes. As the prospector settled down, the professor stayed. ★ THE ANACONDA COMPANY ( 129)PLENTY OF ELECTRICITY MEANS MORE JOBS A few years ago, the word "job" probably meant something unpleasant to you — a household task like chopping wood, doing dishes, cleaning house or mowing the lawn. Today, though, the word has a different . . . more exciting . . . ring to you. It means employment. All of you want jobs . . . and pay. Electricity is a factor in determining where a business or industry will locate. The community with a plentiful supply of power has a better chance of being designated a site for a new business or plant. We have a department that aids in developing the state by actively promoting Montana as a good place to live and work. We have plenty of power.
