Chinook '69 Western Montana College Dillon, Montana I Published by Junior Class Volume Sixty-oneForeword Progress and change are forces which more and more are shaping the world we live in. Western Montana College must change and is changing to meet the needs of the world. Only a few short years ago Western had fewer than 300 students. The enrollment is now almost 1,000. Progress at Western is evident in almost all phases of campus activity. New buildings are springing up like mushrooms almost overnight; a modernized curriculum is coming into being and new faculty members are constantly being added. In the 68-69 Chinook we shall show, not only the manner in which Western is meeting its present obligations, but also the manner in which Western intends to meet its future obligations. 2Contents Future of WMC 9 Campus Life 15 Sports 91 The Student Population 131 Faculty and Administration 195 Advertisements 209 3 Dedication Mrs. Mary Baker Emerick A long and distinguished career was ended by the retirement of Mrs. Mary B. Emerick at the close of spring quarter of last year. In honor of her efforts to create a fine Art Department and to upgrade the quality of Western Montana College in general, the Chinook staff dedicates this year's edition of the yearbook to Mrs Emerick. We wish Mrs. Emerick, Professor Emeritus, a long and happy retirement. AIn Memoriam Miss Mary Marjerrison Last summer Western Montana College lost one of the finest teachers ever to grace its campus. Miss Mary Marjerrison. A dedicated instructor who spent forty years of her life in the teaching profession, she was a profound example to those of us who are taking the first unsure steps toward a teaching career. Since 1962, she served as a member of the faculty at Western, earning the respect and admiration of colleagues and students alike. Though her loss deeply saddened all those who knew her, it might well be remembered that her work will continue to live in those students who had the good fortune to learn from this uncommon and inspirational woman. 5In Memoriam Gordon Arntson 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. Psalm: 23Herb Slack Indispensable is the word most often applied to Herb Slack, campus policeman. He is a true friend to students living in the men s dorms and often works long hours performing miscellaneous tasks such as shoveling snow, loosening jammed locks, and delivering mail. The Chinook staff salutes Herb for a job well done. In Appreciation 7William Straugh This year Bill Straugh is being honored for his 25 years service to Western Montana College. His success can be measured in the 22 championship teams he coached; ten in track, nine in basketball, two in football, and one in baseball. Straugh s cagers also garnered no less than five berths in the tourney finals in Kansas City. Over 25 years, his teams have won 63 per cent of their games and in the MCC and Frontier Circuits his clubs won 180 victories while losing only 80—a near 70 per cent clip. As he is retiring from coaching to devote full time to his duties as Athletic Director, the Chinook salutes his distinguished career.TO THE FUTURE ! LOOKING 9Keeping pace with a doubling enrollment over the past decade has changed the face of Western Montana College's campus as construction workers move at an ever-quickening tempo to meet the need for dormitories, classrooms, and office space. Teaching careers are proving increasingly attractive to men and this, too, is reflected in Western's changing appearance. In 1957 fewer than 200 male students were enrolled; today men out-number coeds, 577-385. To meet this trend Western has added three men's dormitories during the past 10 years. Davis Hall, was completed in 1959 at a cost of $315,000; Centennial Hall was constructed in 1964 at a cost of $370,000; and Clark Hall was constructed in 1967 at a cost of $369,000. (Upper right) The old Administration Building which will continue faithfully to servo Western as it has done in the past. (Center) Western is proud of its modern, up-to-date dormitory facilities. (Below) Construction equipment is now a familiar sight on campus. 10Indicative of Western’s growth is the $3,200,000 building program for the 1967-69 biennium, which includes an attractive, highly-func-tional Physical Education Complex, new Library-Administration Building, and a Classroom-Faculty Office Building. The P-E Complex was completed in December, and dedication ceremonies took place February 14-15. This spacious new structure, measuring 150x400 feet and constructed at a cost of $950,000, contains three general areas—the gymnasium with seating for over 2,000, the central three-story portion for offices, classrooms and specialized physical education programs, and a dirt floor arena, which will afford an all-weather facility for P-E activities and classes. (Top) Western's new P-E Complex as it should appear after landscaping. (Middle) One of the many new activities which Western's new PE Complex makes possible. (Bottom) If is easy for athletes to keep in shape with facilities like the new weight room. 1 1Currently under construction and scheduled for occupancy in the spring is the $540,000 Library and Administration building. The building, which is located between the Student Union and the old Gymnasium, will house, in addition to the library, business and registrar's departments, president's and other administrative offices. The present library reading room will be renovated and converted to classrooms and offices immediately upon transfer of the library to its new quarters. Now in planning stages is a $1-million Classroom and Faculty Office Building, which will house physics, chemistry, and biology departments, complete with associated laboratories and classrooms. The building should be ready for occupancy by Fall Quarter of 1970. Completion of the Classroom and Faculty Office Building will almost double the college's capital investment, which prior to 1967 was listed at approximately $2 V2-million.

(Below) Student listening to recordings. 12 With a 1968 autumn quarter enrollment of 962 (an all-time high) and with a projected enrollment of 1230 by 1975, in mind, WMC President James E. Short and a campus development committee, headed by Professor Henry Stish, have prepared a long range building program, extending through the 1975-1977 biennium. Among projects to be given top priority for the 1969-71 period are building renovations, acquisition of 11 acres adjoining the southwest area of the campus, and a .third floor addition to the new library. Replacement of the present swimming pool, extension of the campus food service, and construction of a women's residence hall are projected for 1971-73. The ten year program will total over $2y2-million, with approximately 75 per cent of the projects self-liquidating through fees and rental receipts.

Western takes pride in the long line of students who have graduated and who have gone out to teach in the elementary and secondary schools, and, as we review the achievements of the past, we look forward to even greater achievements in the years ahead. The present expanding physical facilities— buildings completed, in progress and planned—cause us to look with optimism to the future. The college enrollment will grow, additions will be made to the faculty, curriculum offerings will be increased, and more services will be made available. Yes, the future looks bright and all of us—students, faculty, and administration—are very proud to have had a part in the growth and progress of Western Montana College. Ralph S.

Lynch, Karla Wilhelm, Howard Holmes, Barry Williams, Russ Haffner, Michael Bates; Standing.- Mr. Barthell, Clark Schlegel, and Mr. Stish. ASWMC President's Message I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all the students, faculty, and staff for making my term of office at Western a rewarding one. I am very proud of Western and I fee I with just cause. Over the years the quality of the students who have graduated from Western has been unsurpassed. They have caused change but not by violent protests or demonstrations, but in an orderly and mannerly way within the establishment. I hope all of you have set admirable goals and will work always to achieve these goals both in school and throughout life. The education you received at Western will certainly aid you to this end. Many of the friends you made at Western will, I am sure, be everlasting ones. Words cannot adequately express the feeling I wish to convey. I shall remember this past year as one of the very best in my life. I wish each and everyone the best of luck and, as the Irish say, "May the wind be always at your back." Executive Officers Sincerely, J. D. Lynch J. D. Lynch, President; Karla Wilhelm, Secretary; Clark Schlegel, Vice-President. 16Central Board Employees The Social-Dance Chairman, the Business Manager, and the Publicity Director are the three officials who aid the Central Board in running the student government. These officials are chosen by the Student Body President with the consent of the Central Board. Social-Dance Chairman, Patty Poston, has the job of organizing movies, dances, and other similar social functions which occur at Western. Business Manager, Ed Kovich, is responsible for keeping track of Central Board's funds. Publicity Director, Ron Nierstheim-er, has the duty of publicizing student activities. CENTRAL BOARD EMPLOYEES at work. Inter-Club Council I.C.C. was formed to co-ordinate the activities of the various clubs on campus and to spread information of common interest. Clubs send a special representative or their vice-president to represent them. The leader of I.C.C. is the Vice-President of ASWMC. Meetings are usually held once a month. One of the problems Inter-Club Council has had in the past has been that some of the important organizations have not sent members. In an attempt to correct this situation, the Vice-President has ruled that all financial requests from Central Board go through the I.C.C. This stimulated greater participation, especially at the beginning of the year.

Each new year finds a fresh and inexperienced CHINOOK staff faced with the tremendous task of putting out a new and better CHINOOK. The obstacles to be encountered in the publication of the CHINOOK are tremendous but, with a dedicated staff, they are not insurmountable. Unlike Western's other major campus publication, the WESCOLITE, the CHI-NOOK is not connected in any manner with a class and its staff members receive no academic credits for their services. Larry Bjorndal and Gary Wallace served as co-editors of the 1969 CHINOOK. Advisors to the publication were Miss Blanche McManus and Mrs. Atmeda Mann. 18 The CHINOOK arrives.CHINOOK PHOTOGRAPHERS, Bock row, left to right: Woyne McEwen, Dave Mero, and Jeff Smith; First row: Rod Farley and Larry Mougey.

A total of 166 persons attended the event. Dr. James Short welcomed the guests. Afterward, Don Crosser, president of the WMC Booster Club, outlined the valuable scholarship aid made possible through contributions of both the businessmen and the college staff. 51Freshman Orientation The welcoming committee of upperclassmen were on hand to help as incoming Freshmen, confused with procedures, sought aid. The Freshmen were given the necessary information and their traditional beanies. Later the Freshmen were introduced to one of the fundamental aspects of college life, standing in line. The registration line provided them an opportunity to determine the direction their college careers would follow during the next four years.The Sophomores and Freshmen met on the football field as the traditional Freshman Orientation Week came to an end. Before the pushball contest could put the finishing touches to the week, the Freshmen were insulted by having shaving cream and raw eggs spread over their heads and tobacco forced down their throats. The Freshmen gave their best in the pushball contest to prove they were better than the Sophomores, but the Sophomores displayed superior strength and won. 53Homecoming Western's campus became the setting for the "Gay Nineties" during the Homecoming festivities. All organizations contributed to the atmosphere of this theme during the parade and other events. The coronation was the highlight of the weekend. Miss Jolene McLean was chosen Homecoming Queen and reigned over all of the events. Miss Jan Quilling was chosen as first runner-up. 54left to right: Sheila McMahon, Jolene McLean, Jan Quilling, Susan Hammond, Marcia Lots, Joann Husky, tin McGovern, Ruby Huseby.

Miss Pat Strobbe, chairman of Homecoming, was presented with a dozen red roses from the student body, and a talent show was presented for the entertainment of the audience. Left to right: Jan Quilling, first runner-up,• Jolene McLean, reigning queen; Evelyn Taber, retiring queen. i The Homecoming Parade, led by the Rodeo Club, was a great success. Many floats were entered in the parade, and the Art Club won the prize for the best float. The Homecoming Queen and her court were also featured during this event. 56Homecoming brought many guests to Western's campus. Many friends and relatives of the students and faculty were present. School spirit was exceedingly high during this weekend, and everyone attended the game to witness the Western Montana College Bulldogs' defeat of the Carroll College Saints by a score of 28 to 7. 5758Freshman Stunt Night The freshman class astounded an upperclassman audience with a program ranging from hilarious songs and skits to more serious instrumental numbers. During intermission competition was held for “The Best Dressed Co-ed.” Master of Ceremonies for the evening was Freshman Class President, Rus Haff-ner. The entire program was a much welcomed and enjoyable break from the ever-present routine of studying. 59Christmas Formal The sophomore class presented "Toyland” as the theme for the Christmas Formal.

The ceremony, presided over by Patty Poston, topped off a pleasant evening provided by KZN. 71M-Day M-Day, which is held annually during Spring Quarter, is traditionally the time for cleaning the campus. After the whole student body and faculty pitch-in to clean the grounds, the day's festivities begin. The day starts with a rather rude awakening to the sound of fire crackers and blanks at 6 a.m.After breakfast the students wander off to find which area they are to help clean. The fun, which starts as soon as raking stops, includes the M-Club's auction of its newest members, who just finished white-washing the “M.” Saga Foods has a picnic, which is followed by fun and games for all. Other activities include boating at the lake and the annual IK turtle derby. The day closes with a dance. 73Dedication of Physical Education Complex Featured speaker Professor Mabel Locke Introduction of Vicki Lusk, "Miss Western," by Dr. James E. Short.

Graduation is a time of joy and a time of sorrow. Joy comes from the completed work and the goals achieved, but sorrow comes from the knowledge that one may never see some of his classmates again. Songs and speeches are followed by the long awaited moment when Dr. James Short, the president, hands out the degrees. Outside, after the ceremony, the traditional College Sing concludes the festivities of graduation. 78Around Campus Student Union Building The Student Union Building The Student Union Building, on most campuses, is the hub of after-class activity. So it is at Western. The SUB is the place where a student can meet his friends over a cup of coffee. The SUB also offers an atmosphere of relaxation and an opportunity to vent his frustrations, ideas and opinions in the SUB Sound-Off's sponsored by the IK's. The weekly dances, held in The SUB, give the "uptight" student a chance to "blow his mind" and have a good time in the process. (Above) The end of a hard day or the beginning.

The lives of a great segment of the campus population revolve about those structures known as the men's residence halls. In the minds of their inhabitants the dorms are more than merely living quarters—they are in essence an entirely new way of community life different from anything that the residents have experienced before. The raucous wail of fire alarms, the gentle clatter of poker chips at three in the morning, the dull thunder of exploding firecrackers reverberating through the halls—these sounds are part of dormitory life. Dorm life is much more than fun and games, however. Long hours of toil and study take up a substantial portion of everyday dorm life. Then, too, the dormitories provide opportunities for students to meet other people, to learn to understand them, and to learn to get along with them. Truly, dormitory life is an invaluable experience no college student should be without. Ping pong is a popular sport in the dorms. Looks like Larry is doing a little studying. A little relaxation is in the order of the day. 84 A frequently visited spot. You tell them, Bob. Whot's with the pictures, Steve? Who said students lead a dog’s life? 85 Studying again, Rick?

Here they entertain friends, meet their dates, study for the following day's classes, work, play, and just goof off. The places most often visited are the main lobby and the recreation room, where couples can watch television or sit in the dark! The girls' television room, where the girls can relax and let down their hair, is also a very popular spot. Western Montana College 86 Popcorn All Gone?

Anybody home?Married Dorms Sixteen families occupy the married dorms, which are located at 610 East Cornell Street in Dillon. In this building the wives go about their daily chores, which consist of cleaning house, cooking, doing the laundry, and watching the children, while their husbands attend school. Many of the wives also work outside of their homes or join their husbands as students at Western. On weekends many of the couples load up their cars and set off to visit their nearby friends and relatives. The weekend is not a total loss for those who stay behind, however, for these students can generally pass the time playing cards, watching television, or otherwise enjoying themselves. When the weather permits, one generally finds the area surrounding the married dorms to be a virtual hive of activity, with the men playing catch on the front lawn, the women in the backyard hanging up clothes, and the children riding their tricycles up and down the ramps. Life in the married dorms is truly an interesting and educational experience and most of the married students believe it to be the ‘■greatest." 88 Neil's relaxing. Loren and Nancy studying.

Things were not as bad as they seemed, however, for despite the loss of many of last year's lettermen, the Bulldogs succeeded in capturing third place in Frontier Conference action. The season began with a loss to the Dogs long-time rival—the Ricks College Vikings. The Dogs led at half time against Ricks by a score of 3-0, but in the second half they fell victim to the Viking passing and were defeated 18-3. After the Ricks contest, cancelled games kept the Dogs idle for three straight weeks. The layoff left the Dogs sadly lacking in experience when they journeyed to play Northern for their next game. Lack of experience made the difference in the encounter, and the Dogs suffered a loss to Northern for the first time in league history. The final score was 26-3. [Upper left) Hey Pete, you've got company! Claude Auch scores for Western, (below) 93The next three games saw the Dogs returning to the victory trail: first whipping Tech. 20 14, then powering over Rocky 34 0, and finally smashing Carrol 28-7 for a homecoming victory. As the final game of the season against league rival Eastern approached, tension at WMC mounted. A victory for the Dogs against Eastern would have meant a three-way tie for first place with Western Eastern, and Northern sharing conference honors. Fate, however, decided that this just was not to be. A hardfought first half ended with a score of 13-9 in favor of Eastern. Then Eastern, aided by the strong passing arm of Paul Champlin, began to walk away with the game. The final results of the game saw Eastern with 40 points and Western with 16. With a league record of 3-2 the Bulldogs finished third in conference action and compiled an overall record of 3 wins and 3 losses for the season. Leading rusher for the Dogs for the second straight year was senior tailback Steve Poole with a total of 452 yards and a 4.9 yard average per carry. Steve also led on scoring with 36 points on 6 touchdowns. Next highest scorer was kicker Lynn Stonelake who scored 20 points with the aid of his toe. The defense was a mark of excellence with opponents averaging only 69.4 yards rushing per game. (top of poge) Western's defense closes in.

Something old and something new—that wqs the formula for Western's Bulldogs as they combined several veteran hardcourt performers, some new transfers, and a new head coach to roll to the 1969 Frontier Conference Championship with a respectable 9-1 conference record. This win initiated Western's new Physical Education Complex. Clashes with powerful non-conference foes gave the Bulldog basketball machine valuable experience. The Bulldogs had a 19-9 record for the entire season. The squad this season was centered around stellar returnees, Gary Warhank, Clay Robinson, and Gary Jacobson. They topped statistics again this year. (Right) Coach Casey Keltz discusses his strategy with his '67-‘68 All-Conference players. Clay Robinson and Gary Warhank. 98Warhank, regarded as one of the state's finest all-around performers, led in scoring with a 17.5 average. Gary was on last year's Frontier All-Conference first team, and should be a contender for honors this year. Another who should be a returnee to the dream team is 6'7" Clay Robinson. Named last year as an honorable mention All-American, the big man also enjoyed a fine season this year, leading rebounding with 12 grabs per tilt. Clay hit at a 16.1 clip and hit 48.6% from the field. Gary Jacobson, a 6'2" junior, really came on strong this year to lead in field goal and free throw percentages. His field goal mark was 48.8, and his league-leading free throw percentage was a phenomenal 88.7. Jake averaged 17.4 points per game. {left) A Rocky opponent can't keep determined Gary War-hand from adding two for WMC. (Above) Lou Allen (40) soars high for a rebound against Montana Tech. 99Lou Allen, a senior transfer student from the University of Montana, this year took over as floor leader for the Bulldogs. His cool play-making helped spark the team throughout the season. Charlie Hall, 6 3" freshman I e a p e r, showed tremendous potential in all categories, but was especially outstanding as a rebounder and passer. Sophomore Bill Grubich, who alternated between a starting and a sixth man role, scored with deadly accuracy and led many a Bulldog rally. Big George Nolan, Louie Hall, John Harold, Steve Valentine, and Sid Hudson kept the first six psyched up during the season. They kept the pressure on and made the starters work hard all year. Western had plenty of skill on their bench as well as on the floor. Spirited group effort made the Bulldogs the most powerful team in the conference. (Left) Gary Jacobson stretches up to loft in another basket for the Bulldogs. (Below) Coach Keltz gives his boys some advice during a time out. (Below right) Players anxiously wait for a possible rebound from a foul shot. 100The brain behind the smooth-working Bulldog team was first year Head Coach Casey Keltz. As a high school mentor, Keltz coached Broadwater County High School to state titles in football, basketball, and track. In his brief four year stay at Western he has directed Bulldog teams to two conference crowns. In 1967 he led the football team to the number one spot. This year he headed the basketball team to the victory circle. His winning tradition proves he can match strategy with any of the state's veteran coaches (Above left) Charlie Hall gets a basket and a little revenge at the same time. (Above) Warhank sinks another foul shot, (left) Louie Allen hooks a pass over Rocky defenders. 101Western posted the best defensive average in the Frontier Conference, holding opponents to 77.9 points per game. The team also had the highest field goal percentage, a fine 46.2%. Only Rocky Mountain defeated the Bulldogs in conference play. The Bulldogs avenged their loss by trouncing Rocky 91 to 73 in Dillon. Go Western day saw one of the team's most pleasant victories as the Big Red humiliated Eastern 92 to 66 before a capacity crowd of happy fans. Western opened action in their new gymnasium with a conference title and can look to the future with optimism. Western's roundball teams will continue to be a major threat in the Frontier Conference and will strive to add more golden trophies to their new showcase.

Western's Freshman Team started the 1968-69 season off, with a non-conference tilt against Ricks College. Unfortunately, the Junior Bulldogs wound up on the short-end of a 42-101 score; but on a return match the Frosh took their revenge on Rick's squad by defeating them 71-59. Although, the Frosh didn't have quite the season 'Big Red'' had, they managed to come up with a 5-8 record for the season. As a result of the fine coaching of Larry Johnson, Western has a great future to look forward to. Among the stars of the future two names stand out. These two players are Dave DeBoer, who ended the season with 193 points, and Mike Merz, who finished the season with 162 points. All in all, the freshmen did well and should be congratulated on a job well done. 104 Mike Merz gets the tip to open the gome.(Top left) George Massmen wins tip-off against Carroll.

These pretty, vivacious girls are the hub of the enthusiasm for Big Red. Their zest in leading the cheering is an inspiration for both the teams and the student body and helps spur the teams on to victory. The precision which they display in leading the cheers is not attained by accident as many hours of hard practice are required to achieve this perfection. Miss Vicki Lusk, who exemplifies this spirit and hard work, this year ranked among the top 25 cheerleaders of the nation — an achievement of which the student body is very proud.

Western’s Thinclads put forth a tremendous effort during the 1968 season, but, despite their efforts, they were forced to relinquish the Frontier Conference championship to their rivals, the Eastern team. At the annual conference championship meet, which was held in Billings, several of Western's athletes turned in superb performances. Sparking Western with their efforts were Courtney Taylor, who placed first in the javelin, and Jack Lane, who placed first in the high jump. Other team members who distinguished themselves at the meet were Carl Henderson, who placed second in the javelin, and Wayne McEwen, who placed second in the shot. As a result of their fine performances during the season, two of Western's athletes, Courtney Taylor and Wayne McEwen, became eligible to represent Western at the N.A.I.A. Nationals in New Mexico, where Taylor placed fifth in the javelin and McEwen took sixth in the shot. Several school records were broken during the season. Bob Pemberton ran the half mile in 2:02, Wayne McEwen threw the shot 53'8", and Courtney Taylor heaved the javelin 221’4". 108(Top left and above) McEwen and Taylor show forms that won them N.A.I.A. ratings last year.

For the second consecutive year Western entered a team in the newly formed Frontier Conference sport of cross-country. Five veterans from 1967 and one freshman made up the 1968 harrier team. This year the "over hill and dale" steppers participated in three inter-collegiate meets. The season opened with a home dual meet with Rocky Mountain College which ended in a 28 to 28 deadlock. The next weekend saw the Dogs hustling, but ending up in last place in an invitational meet in Billings. The third meet was the all-important Frontier Conference Championship contest. Western finished third behind Eastern and Rocky Mountain. Jon Yeager was star performer in the 1968 effort. 112 (Top left) John Stratton picks up the pace near the finish line.

This is the function of Rodeo Club. The club has existed on campus since the mid-fifties. Rodeo Club's major activity last year was to sponsor an intra-school rodeo for the benefit of all of Western's student body and faculty members who wished to try their skill in the arena. All major events were offered. Some more humorous ones were run for those not inclined to enter the more strenuous events. In most cases the stock proved to be more capable than the riders. Barring a few bruised arms and legs, everyone came out none the worse for wear, and everyone seemed to have a good time. (Above) Rodeo participants start off tho annual spring rodeo with the traditional grand entry. (Left) Mike Campbell gets a wild ride on Bloody Dick. 113Since its founding Rodeo Club has sent a team, including six boys and three girls, to all National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association approved rodeos in the Big Sky Region. The Big Sky region consists of Montana Washington, northern Idaho, and northern Oregon. Western's rodeo season begins in April of each year, but recently it has included several fall rodeos. Last year's team members walked away with several firsts and numerous other placings. Sparking the team were Hank Real Bird, Mike Campbell, Pierce Rouse, Donna Smith, and Mary Agnes Carragher. Our rodeo team this year will be relying greatly on these experienced hands along with some promising young freshmen. (Right) A big bull feeds Bob Otheim a little bull.

This marked the second title in a row for the Bulldogs. The young, but talented, squad started the season out by splitting with the University of Montana. Four non-conference matches with Ricks College followed, with Western winning a pair to bring their pre-conference record to 3-3. The tough Yellowjackets from Eastern were next to face the Bulldogs. Again, the teams split a doubleheader, leaving Western with a 4-4 record. From that point, the Bulldogs went undefeated, taking two wins each from Montana Tech, Carroll, and Rocky, and losing the latter half of a doubleheader to Northern. This game proved to be the one which would have put the Dogs in sole possession of the conference crown. 117 McChesney beads for home.With Eastern and Western tied after the regular season, a one-game play-off was decided upon to see who would represent Region 3 in the NAIA regional play-offs. Eastern won the heartbreaker 10-3, to dampen Western's hopes for winning its second straight regional berth. Freshman third sacker Bengie Winburn led the team in hitting with a fine .369 average. Steady Jim Lodge finished second in the batting race. Senior catcher Mike Griffin had another fine year, finishing third in batting and first in stolen bases. Mike was chosen most valuable player by his teammates for the second consecutive season. Sophomores Don Campbell and Bob Thomas again handled the bulk of the pitching chores. Campbell, who finished the season eighth in the nation in earned run average, posted a 7-1 record, while Thomas finished with 5-3. (Top right) McChesncy and Lodge await their turn at bat.

At Western this job rests on the shoulders of a trio of very capable people — Miss Boyd, Miss Wallace and Mr. Carpino. Each spends many hours organizing and running a very efficient program, which helps keep the students at Western active after hours spent in the classroom. The program is varied enough to suit everyone's taste, and the new P.E. Complex has added greatly to the enjoyment of students. {Right) Clyde is seen in familiar surroundings.

Our property taxes in Montana came to more than $6,-500,000 in 1968, a record. Of this about 64 percent went for education. That’s nearly $4,120,000. In addition more than a third of a million dollars is devoted to education from the company’s corporation license tax. Our tax payments assist in the education of many Montana students from grade school through college. Is the boy above one of them? Are YOU one of them? Actually, both of you are ... to some degree. We believe money spent for education to be a sound investment in the future. Be our guest.
