February 23, 1968, marked the 75th Anniversary of the signing of the charter of Western Montana Col- ege. Western was signed into existence as a State Normal School when Governor John E. Rickards signed House Bill No. 75 on February 23, 1893. The people of Dillon had to campaign very hard to have the school located in their community. After much vigorous campaigning, Dillon was chosen over her chief rival, Twin Bridges, to be the home of the teacher's college. 2Western has continually progressed since the first day of school on September 7, 1897. This official opening day was preceded by a "Summer Normal" which opened July 26, 1897. The advanced sessions were held in the high school in Dillon, since the college facilities were not yet available. From the beginning, Western stressed the idea that students of education should have actual practice in classroom situations. A model school for this purpose was established for the first summer session. For many years student teaching was done in cooperation with the Dillon public schools. Today many other Montana cities are involved in the program. (Right) The First Administration Building after it was completed in 1897. (Below) The original building and the 1902 addition.(Right) Students pose on the steps in 1897. (Below) In 1898 students produced Mrs. Jar-ley's Waxworks. (Bottom) The first library occupied a space that now houses the art department. The faculty at Western has expanded from the first five in 1897 to the present forty-three full-time and two part-time members. Western's faculty members have always been noted for their skill and dedication to the advancement of education. In 1898 three students received diplomas for completion of the one-year professional course then offered. In 1967, 166 candidates received certificates and degrees. Like the faculty, the students have been enthusiastic about their training in education. They have proved themselves in schools throughout the United States. 4The early administration at WMC realized that one of the foremost requirements of any sound educational institution is its reference materials. From the beginning a sizeable portion of the school's funds were set aside to supply library materials. The 180-volume library of 1897 has been expanded to the present 45,000-volume facility. This expansion reflects the interest that the administrators at Western have always taken in the improvement of facilities for future use. (Top) The first auditorium is now the site of the art gall and the music room. (Center) The first dormitory was c ploted in 1902. (Left) Students enjoyed th© home-like roc in the early dorms. (Below) in 1906 a new addition added to the first dormitory.Since the placing of the cornerstone of the first building on April 7, 1895, Western has tried to expand campus facilities to meet the needs of an increasing enrollment. Building has taken place whenever funds have been made available. When students arrived in Dillon in September of 1897, they found no spacious dormitories to accommodate them. The people of Dillon had to take them into their homes. The need for on-campus living quarters was soon realized and a dormitory for seventy women students was provided in 1902. The first housing for men came in 1903-1904 with the partitioning off of part of the women's dormitory. The addition of housing has been a constant goal at WMC. (Top) Students enjoyed the parlor in the first dormitory. (Center loft) In 1937 the present Women's Residence Halls were built. (Center right) Campus- Hall was added in 1919. (Right) Styles and interior decorations changed in the dining room and recreation hall which was built in 1921.The changing pace of today's world is impressively evident throughout the WMC campus as yesterdays make way for tomorrows in a myriad of cultural and technological evolutions. Geared to the challenge is a $3,200,-000 building program, now under way at Western and due for completion by 1969. Initiating the program was the construction of Clark Hall, a dormitory designed for 150 men. Clark Hall brings the total facilities for men to over 400. (Top) Home economics used to be an offered course. (Left) Laboratory work has always been an important part of much of Western's curriculum. (Below) The library was completed in 1925. (Bottom) In 1952 the new auditorium was completed. 7Construction is now under way on a $950,000 Physical Education Complex. It is scheduled to be ready for use fall quarter of this year. Funds in amount of $540,000 were approved for construction of a new Library Complex. Construction should begin on this building in the near future. Financing has also been made available for a new Classroom-Faculty Office Building that should be built in the current biennium. As the world-wide population continues on a mounting scale, the demand for qualified teachers is expected to approach a critical stage. Western Montana College, having achieved respected stature in the field of teachertraining, has developed a program designed to continue serving education with the finest men and women in this professional field. (Top) Students occupied Clark Hall for the first time fall quarter of 1967. fCen-ter) Centennial was opened for use in 196-1. (Above) The attractive Western Apartments provide sixteen units for married students. (Left) Problems were on-countered when the stack was added to the heating plant in 1953. 8(Loft) Construction of the new P.E. Complex should be completed for fall of 968. (Below) Jordan and Davis Halls were built in 1958 and 1959. (Center) 1958 saw the rise of the Student Union Building. (Bottom) Physical education was expanded with the gymnasium in 1924 and the swimming pool in 1925. The past decade at Western has been one of tremendous change and, although the future cannot be planned or predicted, the promise of continued progress has never been greater. Based on its accomplishments of recent years. Western Montana College will become increasingly involved in the wave of growth currently sweeping the Northwest and the Nation. 9For many years Western has been blessed with a beautiful campus. The Gothic architecture of the Administration Building blends with the many large trees on campus to form an inspiring educational atmosphere. Because Dillon is located in the land of the chinooks, the winters are usually mild. The weather and the na-ural beauty of the campus make Western a fine place to pursue an education. (Top) The Administration Building is impressive in the spring. (Above) The president's residence is an attractive structure. (Right) A beautiful lane of trees used to be a favorite attraction. (Below) The northwest corner was once the most scenic spot of all. 10Milestones in the History of Western Montana College Created in 1893 by act of legislature as Montana State Normal School.

Beanies were issued to 317 members of the new class. The eager "beanie hoppers" participated in the usual battles with the always victorious upperclassmen. 44 J- - wThe freshmen survived the registration lines but could not escape the clutches of the upperclassmen. After liberal applications of shaving cream, raw eggs, etc., the freshmen decorated the streets of Dillon in an impressive snake dance. Halftime entertainment for the game was provided by these enthusiastic warriors. The two opposing forces clashed in a pushball contest. The freshmen were ruthlessly defeated by the superior upperclassmen.Homecoming Western's campus was transformed into a Casino Royale during the Homecoming festivities. All organizations contributed to the atmosphere of a "Gamblers' Paradise" with their contributions to the parade and all other events. The highlight of the weekend was the coronation. Miss Evelyn Taber was chosen Homecoming Queen and reigned over all events. Miss Mary Kay Pipinich became first runner-up. The special guest at the coronation was adorable—four-year-old Paul Carter Hawkins, National Muscular Dystrophy Poster Boy. 46Left to right: Cissy Mattson, Maureen Twomey, Evelyn Taber, Mary Kay Pipinich, Diana Rowling, Betty King. Six vivacious queen candidates were escorted by the Intercollegiate Knights. An enlightening talent show was a special attraction at the coronation, and Miss Jamie Black, 1966 Homecoming Queen, was introduced. Ron Nierstheimer served as emcee for the evening and had the pleasure of interviewing Paul. He also introduced Miss Lynda Marengo, chairman of Homecoming, and presented her with a dozen roses from the student body. 47Following the coronation, the Intercollegiate Knights led a large, enthusiastic crowd to the bonfire. School spirit was high during homecoming and this spirit was extended to the football team. The enthusiasm paid off well for the hustling Western Bulldogs when they defeated the Eastern Yellowjackets by an impressive score of 32-6. prc tented lo Beaverhead Co Vi h DILLON JAYCEE5 48Homecoming also brought alumni and parents to our campus. Teas, registration, and open house were among the activities in which the special guests participated. Slot machines, dice, cards, and gamblers appeared on campus and paraded through Dillon to the site of the game. The Sophomore Class received the prize for the most attractive float. 49The grand finale of the weekend was the Homecoming Dance. The SUB ballroom was transformed into a Western saloon. The dance was interrupted by a gunfight. The startled crowd backed away when the guns began to fire but relaxed when they realized that it was only a prank. This event was the climax to a successful and entertaining Homecoming weekend. 50Freshman Stunt Night The freshman class captivated the upperclassmen when they put on their talent show. Our cultural horizons were broadened when the talented group presented their version of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." The freshman class president, Ken Taylor, was master of ceremonies. The entire affair was very entertaining and enjoyable as it came to a "smashing" finish.Sadie Hawkins The campus of Western Montana College assumed the "Hillbilly" spirit of Dog-patch, U.S.A. for the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance.

The thrill and pride that .Vicky felt captivated the audience as she tearfully walked down the ramp. Miss Western 1967, Miss Kay Wilson, relinquished her crown to Miss Vicky Lusk, Miss Western 1968. Kay Wilson was truly a queen during the past year. She represented Western Montana College well as she toured and entertained many crowds with her beautiful voice.Appreciation Dinner The Western Montana College faculty were guests of the Dillon business and professional men at a "WMC Appreciation Dinner."

Northern Montana College and Western compete every year. Western won last year and contributed 87 pints to this year's blood drawing. 69Studying is the biggest extracurricular activity on campus. After a Western student has visited the SUB, participated in intramural sports or any of the other campus and off-campus events, he finally relents to studying. 70Western Montana College was honored to have Governor Tim Babcock as guest speaker on the observance of the school's 75th Anniversary. Under the direction of Dr. Dale Tash, a special assembly was held in the auditorium. Governor Babcock was presented with a college seal in commemoration of this event. 72Other invited guests were the State Board of Regents, the Local Executive Board, and the Executive Secretary of the Montana University System. Following the assembly, Governor Babcock and the other special guests had lunch with the students in the food service. The lunch period was a busy one for the Governor as many eager faculty members and students rushed to get his autograph. The Governor's visit helped to complete this memorable event in Western's history. The theme of the Diamond Jubilee Anniversary will be carried out all year long—at graduation, homecoming, in dedication of new buildings, and other special events. 73Graduation 1 967 The climax to an enjoyable stay at Western Montana College is the spring commencement exercise. The 1968 graduation will be one to be remembered for a long time. The Diamond Jubilee year has been an important one to this college, and this theme has been extended to all of the important college events including graduation. 74These are familiar scenes on campus every spring. A long line forms in front of the Student Union Building where the Chinook is issued. After receiving their annuals the students gather in the SUB to examine and discuss their new yearbook. Finally, safely at home in the dormitories, each student more carefully examines the book in his own way. 75M-Day is a favorite spring quarter event. Classes are dismissed and everyone eagerly begins the campus clean-up while the M-Club whitewashes the "M." When the campus is spotless, all of the students depart to participate in their favorite "activity." They do not reappear until the picnic on the SUB lawn. What is the Western student's reaction? "I wish everyday were M-Day." 761929 Football Squad Sports 77 Girls' Junior Basketball Team of 1918Member of the winning Bulldog team: Front row—Head Coach Casey Keltz, Mike Charlton, Lynn Stonelake, Tom Hoover, Hanne Boundy, Jack Filcher, Dave Dcarcorn, Merrill Tester, Dale Sprout, Dave Nelson, Tom Prinkki, Jerome Tu s, and Dick Wiegand; Second row—Dick Ferri , Ed Ferris, Dave Arnof, Fred Snook, Gary Imelli, Stan Chalich, Carl Henderson, Jim Clair- 78 Frontier Conferencemont, Ron Rebish, Leon Hartvigson, John Puschmann, John Chor, graduate assistants, Dan Chiddix, and Bob Peters; Bock row— Assistant Coach George Marinkovich, Louie Molen, Gene Paul, Jim Lodge, Wayne McEwan, Steve Poole, Archie Arntson, Jim Harding, Dave Nielsen, Steve Quilling, Bob Crawford, Dan Wooley, Bob Hanson, Bill Posivio, Bob Bennett, and Terry Schultz. 79 ChampionsWestern Montana's Bulldogs, compiling a perfect 5-0 conference record and outscoring league opponents by a 215-38 margin, garnered the Frontier League's first championship with a 55-6 rout of Rocky Mountain College in the season's finale. Overall the Bulldogs posted a 6-1 season and, following a campaign opening 41-0 loss to Ricks College, rolled to six straight successes.Western, Frontier Conference Champion , did well in their games this year.

The BuHdogs started out their conference season with a 27-13 victory over Northern Montana College. Western followed up this victory by humiliating the Montana Tech Orediggers. The "Big Red" went on to polish their style by defeating the highly talented Westminster Parsons of Salt Lake City 16-7. With three victories under their belts, the Bulldogs had the incentive needed to spoil Carroll's Homecoming and wash out any hopes for a title by the Saints with a 24-13 victory. Jack Filchcr (No. 24) runs for the score (above). Against Westminister, the Big Red Defense is tops (below).Next, Western had its most successful homecoming in years as the Bulldogs overpowered the highly rated Eastern Montana College Yellowjackets with a mortifying 32-6 victory. The win left Western a cinch for at least a conference tie. However, "Big Red", sensing a conference title, invaded the Mid- land Empire and completely overwhelmed the Bears of Rocky Mountain College with a decisive score of 55-6 to wrap up the Frontier Conference. This was the first time since 1963 that the title was bestowed upon the Bulldogs; it broke a three year domination held by the Yellowjackets of E.M.C., who had overpowered the conference and paralyzed it with fear. So it was; "Big Red" was Number 1. Pictured: Coach George Marin-kovich in conference with the team (upper left). Against Car-roll, Tom Hoover (No. 30) runs for big pickup yards (upper right).

After losing their opening game to the powerful Northwest Trappers by a score of 100-97, the Bulldogs came on strong to win six out of their next eight ballgames before going into a Christmas time slump. The "Big Red" came out of the slump in time to provide stiff conference opposition for EMC, NMC and Carroll College. After dropping the conference lid-lifter by a narrow 83-79 outcome in favor of Carroll College, the Bulldogs pulled the upset of the year by defeating the Eastern Montana College Yellow Jackets 88-78 at Western.

Western's 7-3 conference record was good enough to give them second place and insure them of an NAIA playoff against the Frontier Conference Champion Eastern Yellow Jackets.

These two mainstays are certain to be All-Conference nominees. Further evidence of the Bulldogs balanced scoring attack is exhibited in Mike Griffin's 280 points, Gary Jacobsen's 269 points and Jim Lot's 211 points. Good bench strength is the mark of a great ball team and the Bulldog team had Wendell Griffin, the 6' 4" center from Corvallis who filled in with clutch plays time and again during the season. John Harold, a hustling sophomore from Anaconda, also strengthened the team. This year is the last year the Bulldogs will play in the old WMC gymnasium.

Rodeo Among the rougher extracurricular activities at Western is the sport enjoyed by members of the Rodeo Club. Riding a bull or roping a calf in competition for WMC is commonplace with many Western students. Led by Mary Agnes Carraher and her flashy mare, Miss Big Horn, the Rodeo team participated in several college rodeos and hosted a spectacular rodeo of their own at the rodeo grounds in Deer Lodge. After school ends, many of these same college riders enter other rodeos. This is the case with Mary Agnes. She grabbed top honors by winning the state barrel racing title for the second year in a row. Thus, she brought honor to herself, the rodeo team, and WMC. Here Mary Agnes shows the makings of a champion as she rounds the barrels in college rodeos. Above, she has the last barrel made and is starting for the finish.

Favorite activities of the SUB-ites are to discuss the latest in campus gossip, to sit and enjoy five minutes of solitude, to buy a coke, or to chat with Skippy, the book store manager. The SUB also offers an atmosphere where the students may release frustrations. SUB Sound-Off, a project of the Intercollegiate Knights, has proved ideal for many of the populace to state their opinions. Dances are held weekly to enable the students to "let down their hair", "kick up their heels", and have a good time. Marshall Thompson enjoys a coffee-break between classes (upper right). Campus book store offers many items for students (below). Sometimes even the student workers get a break (upper right).fc 109Men’s Residence Halls The men's residence halls provide.more than just living quarters for the many students housed within them. Dormitories are the scene of study, fun, comedy, tragedy, joy, sorrow, and finally of success and failure. In the dormitories students encounter an aspect of life entirely different from any they have experienced before. Dormitory life provides an opportunity for students to meet other people, to learn to understand them, and to learn to get along with them. The raucous wail of false fire alarms, the strident blare of record players and radios, the gentle clatter of poker chips at three in the morning, the dull thunder of friendly feuds resounding through halls—these, too, are part of dormitory life. All, however, is not fun and games. Long hours of toil and study take up a substantial portion of everyday college life. Dormitory life is an invaluable experience no college student should be without. 4 (]) Clark Hall is the newest of the men's dormitories. (2) Lynn Stonelake utilizes his razor.

The outside perfectly symbolizes intellectual eminence while the inside provides a functional environment conductive to academic excellence. Administration offices, classrooms, laboratories, and the library are housed inside this efficient complex. (Top) The library is the scene of intensive study.

(Bottom right) Audio-visual lab provides tools for tomorrow's teachers.Women’s Residence Halls The Women's Residence Hall is one of the most popular buildings on the campus. The biggest attraction of this building is the cafeteria. Students may skip classes for several days, but the attendance record for the cafeteria is almost perfect. The main entrance of the dorm is the focal point for everyone from the bewildered frosh to the assured senior. The girls nightly race through this door in order to beat the curfew bell. After winning this race, the girls engage in a free-for-all activity known as "signing in." (Lower right) At certain time of day the cafeteria becomes a popular gathering spot for students. (Middle) The entrance to the ‘girls' dorm is' a location known to everyone. (Lower left) The girls literally race against time before curfew sounds. (Upper right) The switchboard sees a lot of action at times.The girls' dorm supplies all the comforts of home and some extras besides. Mrs. Carmody, Dean of Women, and Mrs. Munson, Housemother, are always willing to help the girls with their problems, and John Male-sich and Mrs. Walter Albertson are constantly on the job to keep the dorm comfortably clean. For the little extras the dorm supplies pop machines in the TV room and a cigarette machine in the basement. Laundry rooms are also provided. The television is probably the most popular machine in the dorm. The girls' TV room is seldom empty. Here girls can let down their hair, or else put it up. Despite the many activities, education is still the main concern of the co-eds of WMC. (Upper left) The pop machines are often visited by thirsty students. (Upper right) The laundry room sees a lot of traffic. (Middle) The girls mjoy a little recreation. (Lower left) Linda "Santa" Smith is finding out what Betty Willis wants for Christmas as the helpers listen. (Lower right) Study still takes up a lot of time, in the dorm. 115 I- ' WMC is to say "good bye" to her gymnasium as the main PE center by fall quarter of 1968. The gym has provided many years of good service, but it has become too small to accommodate Western's rising enrollment. Students have enjoyed intramurals, PE classes, and varsity sports in the gym since 1924. The gym will continue tq see action even though the new complex will take on much of its previous load.i11 n Faculty And Administration Robert Clark Rush Jordan Pictured above are noted faculty members of the past after whom the men's residence halls are named. Robert Clark was a very popular professor at Western for many years. Dr. Davis was president from 1919 to 1946. Rush Jordan served as president from 1946 to 1956. 117President Dr. James E. Short This is a memorable year in the history of Western Montana College. Seventy-five years ago on February 23, 1 893, the Montana Legislative Assembly enacted a law providing: "that there be and is hereby established within two miles of the corporate limits of the city of Dillon, Beaverhead County, Montana, a state normal school, which shall be called the Montana State Normal School ' and that "The object of said Normal School shall be the instruction and training of teachers for the public schools of the state of Montana, inclusive of all grades and departments." Those of us who were fortunate enough to share with Western her 75th Anniversary have an additional bond that must be denied all other people. We are appreciative of the privilege and honor of sharing this event with Western.Local Board of Education Mr. O. A. Bergeson, Mr . Amy Gilbert, Dr. Jamc E. Short, Mr. W. G. Gilbert.

The burdens of student life are many, but it is comforting to know that a student can get a helping hand if he needs it. If a sleepy student falls asleep in class the teacher will patiently let him sleep, figuring he needs the rest. A student can always find a favorite instructor in the SUB. A professor at WMC will almost always be found with a smile, even when handing out an F. Where else can one be so comforted?

James Waylett The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
