 ; . .Published by THE JUNIOR CLASS Western Montana College of Education Dillon, Montana VOLUME FORTY-NINE.5oreword I, the "M," overlook the campus of Western Montana College of Education. Although unnoticed by many, I have viewed the academic, sports, and social activities of Western for many years. During these years I have seen Western excel in each of these three phases. I have watched Western grow from a college offering the two-year diploma to a school conferring the master's degree. This year, 1957, I will view students working on majors in mathematics and physical education for the first time. I am proud to be a part of this expanding educational system. Each year I anxiously await the registration of the new students and look forward to the return of those who enrolled during the preceding years. As each year passes I watch these students grow intellectually as their interests increase under the leadership of Western's faculty. When these students receive their diplomas and degrees, they stand on the mountain peak overlooking me because they have earned a most precious reward—their education. This year I have watched many changes take place at Western. The new President was very successful in his program of expansion for a greater Western. Campus improvements began with the enlargement of the parking lot. The ground was broken and construction has begun on the new student union, the men's dormitory, and the housing units. During the year the heating plant was repaired and a new business office and a new office for the President were completed. I can see that with each change that takes place on the campus Western will continue to educate even better teachers for all schools. In this 1957 Chinook I, the "M," am endeavoring to show the campus as I see it. I hope in the future I may view a larger enrollment, more campus improvements, and an even greater Western. Let's make every year at Western a great year.

We hope that Dr. Steele will be on the campus for many years to come and that each ensuing year will be as successful for him and for Western, as this one has been.

The group works constantly toward its goal, the gift shop. The gift shop is maintained primarily to bear the expenses of the club, including materials for gifts, speakers for special occasions, and trips to nearby points of interest. It is the effort of the club to have at least one shop sale a quarter, and this year gifts sold were yule logs, corsages, gift toppers, felt mittens, copper enameled jewelry, and stationery. Each year the club has an annual get-together near graduation time in the spring. Last year the club banquet was held in the Episcopal Church Guild Hall. Mr. Rush Jordan, retiring president, was the principal speaker at the banquet, and in his talk he gave a brief history of the Art Club and its contributions to the College, making special mention of the WMCE campus sign that was made and installed by the Art Club. Guard pins representing one hundred hours of club participation were presented by Mrs. Emerick to Joyce Boehm, Juanita Sweeny, Shirley Kalland, and Ann Larabee. The banquet always presents an art project for the club members; placecards, center-piece, and favors are worked out as a unit by the group. The banquet, just mentioned, used as its theme "Hank and Gert" which won first place in the Vodvil during spring quarter. During July of 1956, the Art Club went on a field trip to the Archie Bray Foundation and the Montana Historical Museum in Helena. At the Archie Bray Foundation (Western Clay Company) much of the ceramic work for the state is being done. During this year the three-brush emblem was earned by Verna Jenkins and Ann Larabee.

WMCE is once more engaged in full competition in debate and other forensic activity, having reorganized the activities last year under the direction of Mr. Lawrence. In addition to the debate activity a full program was planned in oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and oral interpretation. A number of students indicated an interest in competing in one or more of these events. For the first time Western debaters attended the Rocky Mountain Speech Conference held in February at the University of Denver. According to Mr. Ixrwrence, "The aim of the entire Forensic program is to offer a new and continually expanding opportunity for participation to the students at Western." Future plans for the Forensic program promise to add interest for the college, the community, and the state. One instance of this is the proposed debate to be held on the campus of Western next year between a team from the University of London, England, and a team from Western. Rose Marie Scott and Kathy Miller won first and second place, respectively, in the founders Day Oratorical Contest. Other contestants were Dennis Winters, George Parrett, and Charlotte Olson.

This is the first year the Council has been organized, and it has been a great success. (71 ) Jlie (J3uildinc f- ro ram at 'Western The year 1956-57 has been one of great activity on the campus of Western Montana College of Education. Early in the autumn quarter, Dr. Herbert L. Steele, newly elected president, began making plans for an expanded building program—plans which necessitated conferences, blueprints, and out-of-state trips. As a result three new buildings, one with apartments for married students, a men's dormitory, and a Student Union Center, are under construction. Those who have not been on campus during the current year will see many other changes. An attractive new Business Office, located across the hall from the former office, has been added to WMCE. This new office with its added space makes is very convenient for students and staff. Located in the rear of the Business Office is another room which is to be used by Miss Mathews, the business manager, for conferences and consultations. The President's office was the next to be completed. It is just across the hall from the office formerly used by the other presidents. With the new office is a waiting room for those who wish to see President Steele; there is also an office for his private secretary. What was the combined president's and registrar's office has become two offices: one for the registrar, and the other for the receptionist. Partitions in Room 214 have made it possible for the Director of Public Relations to have an office there—this in addition to the Placement Office and a conference room for superintendents who come great distances to offer contracts to Western graduates.

A large crowd was in attendance. More had come than was anticipated and several members of Western’s faculty gave up their places so that out-of-town alumni could all be seated. It is hoped that the alumni will continue to come each year and that others will trek back to Western for future homecomings. The dinner was delicious. The room was artistically decorated in an autumn motif with fall leaves and berries on the tables. A very interesting program was directed by Carl M. Davis, county attorney, who served as master of ceremonies. He asked the alumni to introduce themselves, after which he introduced the principal speakers and other participants in the program. Dr. Sheldon E. Davis asked the blessing and later, when he spoke priefly, wished all alumni success. Rush Jordan, who was Western’s president from 1946-56, said his thoughts would go with the alumni at all times wherever they may be. Dr. Herbert Steele, president of Western, expressed the hope that an Alumni Council would be appointed and a state alumni association organized. The Alumni Council had its beginning in the appointment of Dan Sweeney, Butte, and Ed Mattix, Great Falls, to serve in their respective communities. Miss Genevieve Squires, deputy state superintendent, Helena, spoke of the high rating teachers from Western receive throughout the state. Mr. Straugh, chairman of 1956 Homecoming activities, named the members of the football squad of 1940. Then as now the Bulldogs won. Joe Doohan, president of the student body, introduced Jean La londe, Homecoming queen, and spoke briefly of the interest of the students in the alumni. Mrs. Marjorie Tripp and Mrs. Hazel Thompson, soloists, sang two songs each accompanied by Eyvonne Trbovich. Before adjourning there was group singing led by Mr. Jones. Mr. McFadden was the accompanist. The M Club dance closed Homecoming festivities for 1956. Carl Davis, master of ceromonios Western is justly proud of its alumni. Western alumni are regularly making their high mark in our world—in a host of various fields of endeavor. Their loyalty is one of the highly-prized rewards enjoyed by Western's staff and students. The alumni remember their college days in many ways ... by sending students to Western, by contributing time and money in our behalf. . . and by their continuing interest in alumni affairs. One might say they are "returning the favor" . . . helping new students even as they were helped. Western joins the Alumni Association in cordially inviting you to join and to participate in alumni activities. For information, see or write Mrs. Walter A.

With nine lettermen returning from last year's squad and twenty other hopefuls, Coach McCormick had the prospects of a winning team. Although the season could not be termed a rousing success percentagewise, the inspiration, eagerness, and morale to play football was high among the players. At times the Bulldogs played the brand of football a championship team would play, but were only able to gain one victory while experiencing four losses. Western's first game was held on the home field where they played the more experienced Bobkittens from Montana State College. Although the Bulldogs played hard and showed the determination to win, they ended up on the short end, being defeated 37 to 14. The second game was played with Rocky Mountain, last year's conference champs. Western started fast and furious, scoring the first touchdown. Rocky struck back to tie the score at 6 to 6. The Bulldogs on a series of plays scored again to take the lead 12 to 6. With only minutes to go Rocky pulled a stunting end run which ended up for eighty yards and a touchdown. Their try for the extra point was good and proved to be the winning score, making Rocky victorious, 13 to 12. The Bulldogs then journeyed to the Anaconda Memorial Field where they played their long-time rivals, the Carroll College Saints. The first half was very close and hard fought. After stopping Western on the one-foot line, Carroll led at halftime 14 to 0. The Carroll Saints with terrific spirit came back the second half scoring two more touchdowns, thus winning 26 to 0. (85) •Jootba Western's Homecoming proved victorious for them, as they defeated the Montana School of Mines Orediggers. Under the enthusiastic homecoming cheers, the Bulldogs started fast by scoring two quick touchdowns. The first half left the Bulldogs leading by the score of 26 to 6. The Orediggers struck back the second half scoring almost immediately. The remainder of the game was played to a standstill, making Western victorious 26 to 13. The final game of the year saw the Bulldogs traveling to Billings where they played the Eastern Yellowjackets. Eastern, not to have their homecoming spoiled, started fast and scored throughout the game, while the Bulldogs could only score once. Eastern proved to be the stronger, winning 38 to 7. The Bulldogs were fortunate in placing two members on the "All-Conference" team. Russel Fisk, Western's heady quarterback, was chosen the pilot of the first team. Ken Scally, a versatile tackle and one of the most consistent players on the team, was chosen for the second team.

After a slow start in which they lost to Eastern's Yellow-jackets and the Rocky Mountain Bears, they climbed the conference ladder, but could do no better than second place. They revenged their losses to the Billings teams by dumping Rocky Mountain in a conference game and later the Yellowjackets in the N.A.I.A. Tournament held in Billings. Western lost the championship and a right to the Kansas City tourney to a highly talented Nazarene College team of Nampa, Idaho. Western finished the season with a commendable 18 won and 14 lost record, winning eleven of the last fourteen games. Coach Bill Straugh and the Western Bulldogs are to be congratulated on a fine showing. Our school is proud of you. Ray Scott, six-foot two-inch junior from Plains, was voted the team's most valuable player. Ray led the team in every department. Besides scoring, rebounding, making free throws, he was a very capable defensive player. Congratulations, Ray, on a fine job. Five of Western's men earned all-conference honors. Scott and Cooper were named to the first team, Anderson made the second five and Jenkins and Pitman were accorded honorable mention.

(94) JrcicL 1956 The 1956 track team, although placing second to Rocky Mountain in the Montana Collegiate Conference in Billings last spring, turned in a remarkable performance for the limited number of contestants Western entered. In this meet the Bulldogs failed to gain a single point in the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes, discus, pole vault and broad jump. These points were solely missed when the final tabulation of points came about. As usual, bad weather hampered the team in dual meets at Rexburg, Billings, and Dillon prior to the finals at Billings and counted heavily towards Western's defeat. The win by Rocky also ended our domination of track and field in this College Conference. For the past five years Coach Straugh had led the cinder-men to five consecutive conference wins. To add to this, our relay team also came up second, thus ending Western's domination which had extended over seven consecutive years. Joe Doohan with firsts in the 880, mile and third in the 440 led our scoring. Dick Barber placed first in the 120 and 220-yard hurdles. Ray Scott took first in the javelin, and Les Paro and Don Donavon tied for first in the high jump. The 1956 season brought to an end Bill Straugh's reign as Western's track coach. He will now devote most of his time to basketball, baseball and to the work he does as Director of Athletics. Congratulations, Bill, for a splendid record! JracL 1957 Under their new coach, George McCormick, the track candidates hope to add new laurels to the school's outstanding records in track and field events. With the aid of competent veterans and a sprinkling of new material, the Bulldogs should be able to accomplish this. Again they will be led by Joe Doohan, Western's representative to the N.A.I.A. meet at San Diego, California. Along with him there are Les Paro, Dick Barber, Jim Fitzpatrick, Ray Scott, George Nelson, and Wes Wagenaar—injured last year—who were all point makers for Straugh's cindermen. To bolster this strong line of veterans, we will have numerous candidates for team berths. Of these, Phil Robinson, Livingston; Bill Fairhurst, Three Forks; Bill Mular, transfer from the School of Mines; Bob Butorovich, transfer from M. S. U.; Jim Jenkins. Belgrade; Jim Scalf, Stevensville; Larry Varland, Harlow-ton; Jack Dunlap, Livingston; and Loren Sullender, Twin Bridges.

Western finished second in Montana Collegiate Conference behind Eastern. Outstanding in this successful season were the following: Jim Sullivan, who led the pitchers with three wins and no losses; Geary Moran, who had the lowest E.R.A. with .49; Larry Palagi, who made 5 home runs. Among players who batted over .300 were Bill Leybold, catcher; Mike Lacey, third baseman; Bill Connors, center fielder; and Jim Sullivan, pitcher-first baseman. The Reverend Dennis Kinlaw, now in the United States Navy, was the 1956 coach. As the Chinook goes to press the 1957 baseball team is pointing toward a banner year under Bill Straugh. The team will be helped by a star-studded array of fine veterans from last year's successful team and several freshmen, including such stars as Bob Kovacich, Max Nield and Jerry Fox.

Barber breaks through to score A basket for the Liborators DcMarois makes cn attemptJ ntramuraf Sports A banner year in the Intramural sports program was witnessed on the Western campus during the 1956-57 school year. This extensive program consisted of basketball, ping-pong, tennis, golf, softball, and mixed volleyball. An unusually large number of students participated, which was a major factor in determining the success of each event. The basketball league was the highlight of the Intramural winter activities. The program started in late December and extended until late February. Eight teams made up the members of the league, and close competitive games were held throughout the season. The schedule consisted of a two-game elimination in which Ozzies Engineers were the victors. A post-season tournament was held and the Butte Rats, dark horse of the tournament, upset the Engineers in a final overtime battle. The league was sponsored by the "M” club and was ably directed by Coach George McCormick. PING-PONG Another winter sport of no less significance but with much less participation was ping-pong. Eighteen men competed in a single elimination tournament with Pat Casey of Kalispell the victor and Ted Taft of Cut Bank placing second. Close competition earmarked all games, thus making close scores the deciding factor. The tournament was sponsored by the Student Council and was directed by Pete Glennie. SPRING SPORTS For spring sports in the Intramural field a mixed volleyball tournament was held. This was under the auspices of the Recreation Leadership class and was directed by Bill Mular, Tom Hoyer, and Sherall Rafter. A softball league for men students added a great deal of interest for the outdoor type student. This league was on the same basis as basketball. Coach McCormick also directed this activity. In addition the sunshine enthusiasts also enjoyed an extensive program in golf and tennis. Bill Straugh, Athletic Director, directed these two sports. All those interested in sports extend congratulations to the directors, sponsors, and participants. (99)The Intramuial program at Western expanded its field this past year with the addition of bowling to its activities. Under the direction of Mrs. Ruth Greenfield the league enjoyed a successful season. The keglers rolled three games every Tuesday afternoon at the local Ned-Eva Lanes throughout the fall and winter quarters. The league consisted of four teams with more than thirty students participating. A post-season tourney in three events, team, doubles, and singles was held at the end of winter quarter. The team of Bill Meagor—captain, Barbara Bechtold, Myma Rosdahl, Phil Vedovatti, and Chuck Delano took honors in the team events, while the combination of Barbara Bechtold and Bob Sheehan won the doubles and Les Paro was tops in the singles. Western's Men's team of Bob Sheehan, Bill Meagor, Mike Lacey, Bill Ley-bold, and Dick Evans placed second to the University of Washington in an Air Mail Tournament for all colleges and universities in the Western United States.

This year the club had a full schedule and a very successful year. WAA opened the year with a party for all the freshman girls. This party gave the new girls an opportunity to become 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. Roberta Elder and A1 Puccinelli 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 evening is WAA sports 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. This year, games were played with the Beaverhead High School girls. Candlelight initiations were held twice during the year at which time many new members joined the club. By competing in the various sports, and individual activities such as ice skating, swimming, and bowling, and by being a member of the club for five quarters, the members earn points which entitle them to a winged "M" letter. During the spring quarter a group of ten girls and two sponsors attend the annual playday. This is an event sponsored by the WAA organizations in the units of the greater University of Montana. This year Bozeman was hostess. Officers for the year are Sherall Rafter, president; Marlene Larock, vice president; Hazel Thompson, secretary-treasurer. ( 105)WWC£l?Jeo This club is the most newly organized activity on Western's campus. Only to build into one of the leading campus organizations in years to come. The small but energetic membership is headed and sponsored by Mr. Joe S. Feathers. Les Paro was the first elected president and Bob Davis the vice president. Carolyn Pierce is secretary; Joyce Housel, treasurer; Shirley Bacon, reporter; and Pete Glennie is Student Activities Committee representative. Western's Rodeo club is affiliated with the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in the Rocky Mountain district. The news of the campus can now be broadcast over Dillon's new radio station KDBM, which was completed last December. The first program was held on January 6. Each Sunday afternoon since then, Western has presented a program consisting of college news and entertainment. This station has enabled Western to inform the people of Dillon and nearby vicinities of the activities that are taking place, bringing them into closer contact with these affairs. KDBM has been a great asset to Western's program of expansion. George Brown, Public Relations Director, is in charge of the radio programs, and students from the college conduct the programs. this year has anything of this nature taken place here.

First Law Providing For Public Schools When the Territory of Montana was established, the Organic Act made the following provision for education: "And be it further enacted, that when the lands in said territory shall be surveyed under the direction of the government of the United States, preparatory to bringing the same into market, sections numbered 16 and 36 in each township in said territory shall be. and the same are hereby reserved, and in the states and territories hereafter erected out of the same.'' In his address to the Legislative Assembly, Sidney K. Edgerton, first territorial governor, pointed out that the endowment would provide a rich fund for education but that its benefits would not be immediately available. He urged an adequate tax levy to provide school funds in the meantime. The legislature was prompt to act on the Governor's suggestion and provided for the establishment of a "Common School System for the Territory of Montana." The act became a law with the Governor's signature on February 7, 1865. The first 12 sections of the act were concerned with school revenues. It was provided that the principal of all monies accruing to the territory from the sale of lands granted by Congress shall constitute an irreducible fund, the interest from which to be annually divided among the school districts.
