. . . from a past of seventy-two years you might anticipate a
great future for our school, especially when you consider the
changes that have taken place during that period of time. Some
of these changes haveibeen in the curriculum, in the methods
of instruction, in organizations, in the students, in the admin-
istration, in the campus, and even in the college yearbook.
Through the years from the time of the first president and pio-
neer educator, loseph Baldwin, a continual growth and expan-
sion has taken place in the school along with the progress and
development of our state and nation. lt was in l867 that Pro-
fessor Baldwin established his Normal School which was later
to become the Northeast Missouri State Teachers College.
Dr. Walter l-l. Ryle
From this humble start the school has risen to be one of the
leading teacher training institutions in the country. This
achievement has been mostly the work of the great men who
in the past have guided the school, such as those two late pres-
idents, Iohn R. Kirk and Eugene Fair. Undoubtedly the years
to come will unfold another great chapter in the history ot the
school. The progressive spirit ot President Walter H. Ryle, who
has served for the past two years, is evidenced by the expansion
into two new buildings, the establishing of a new curriculum,
and other forward steps, and it is therefore to him that we
make this . . .
ldeas thrive in congenial and comfortable surroundings and
progress results. Among the worthwhile objects created at the
Northeast Missouri State Teachers College to give worthwhile
ideas space for growth have been new buildings.
When students returned from the Christmas vacation, the
transformation of S35U,OOO, a plot of ground, and architectural
intellect was complete in the form of a new Administration-Fine
Arts building, an addition to the Ophelia Parrish Demonstration
School, a new field house, and the beginnings of a landscaping
and beautifying program.
Baldwin I-Iall, the administration building, was a welcome
outlet for the crowded condition in the older campus buildings.
Its three-story spaciousness immediately became filled with the
administration offices, the division of language and literature,
the division of fine arts, and the division of business education.
In one wing of Baldwin I-Iall is a theater for productions by the
Little Theater group. Progress is more than suggested by this
building with its broad, friendly halls, its sound proof rehearsal
rooms for music classes, its well lighted art studios, its roomy
offices, and its general spaciousness.
The addition of sixteen rooms and a gymnasium to the
Ophelia Parrish School is but material proof of the growth of the
education division. The construction of the addition enables the
progressive leaders of this division to expand their ideas and
carry out their ideals.
With some of the college divisions removed from the formerly
crowded buildings, work has begun for expansion in the
In a well rounded education the body must be as fit as the
mind. To help with this ideal the new field house was con-
structed. This one-story brick and tile building is on Stokes
Field, where football games and track meets take place.
An ornamental entrance of Carthage limestone and brick has
been erected at the north side of the campus, the beginning of
the landscaping and beautifying program.
Dr. Walter Harrington Ryle was inaugurated as the seventh
president of the Northeast Missouri State Teachers College on
the nineteenth of May, l938. Dr. Ryle succeeded the late Presi-
dent Eugene Fair and continued the tradition that presidents of
this college are trained in service on the campus. He was a stu-
dent under both lohn R. Kirk and Eugene Fair, the two preceding
The inauguration of President Ryle in the seventy-two year
old history of the Teachers College was a symbol of continued
Leaders of all fields expressed well-placed confidence in the
ability of President Ryle to carry on the ideals of progressive
education on that inauguration day. Thus far that prediction has
become a reality. There is a reason to believe it will always
An eventful day was the nineteenth of May. The inaugura-
tion convocation was held in Kirk Auditorium at ten o'clock.
Dean L. A. Eubank presided and Dr. Sidney Clarence Garrison,
president of George Peabody College for Teachers, gave an
address. The president of the Board of Regents, fudge Iames A.
Cooley, gave the charge to the new president, and Dr. Ryle gave
the inaugural address. Thirty-nine visiting colleges and univer-
sities were represented at the inauguration.
Congratulations were offered by Dr. Ryle's classmates of l9l6,
presidents and other administrative officials of the visiting
schools, the faculty of the Teachers College, townspeople inter-
ested in the growth of the college, various friends of Dr. Ryle,
Governor Lloyd C. Stark of the State of Missouri, and alumni and
former students under the new president.
After the inauguration there was a corner-stone ceremonial
at the new Baldwin Hall. Lloyd W. King, state superintendent
of schools, presided and Governor Stark gave an address. Fol-
lowing the corner-stone ceremonial, the Class of l9l6 were
guests of President and Mrs. Ryle at a luncheon at the Masonic
Temple. That afternoon President Ryle conferred degrees upon
the graduating class. That evening there was a banquet, fol-
lowed by a reception and Inaugural Ball.

By their Works ye shall know them. Tested by this axiom the
Board of Regents ot the Teachers College appears most favor-
ably. From this group comes approval or rejection ot ideas
concerning policies and plans to be used in the further develop-
ment ot the College. The fact that the College definitely has
improved and is now in the midst of a March of Progress proves
the mettle of the Board of Begents. ln a commendable manner
the six members have taken the responsibility of guiding the
policies of the school.
Dr. Walter H. Ryle
Continued growth in the Well-being and prestige of the
Teachers College has again been assured by the progressive
leadership of President Walter H. Ryle in his second year as
President Ryle's selection carries on the excellent Work
started by the late presidents Iohn R. Kirk and Eugene Fair. His
appointment is in keeping with the tradition of this school that
the president shall have been trained under the preceding pres-
ident, thereby enabling him to continue progress smoothly.
The college is composed of a four-
fold administrative set-up with the
president heading the groups. Besides
Dean Eubank, who is in charge of in-
struction, each of the other divisions
has a head who is responsible for the
functioning of his department.
First is the division of personnel
service headed by Mr. N. W. Rickhoff,
who deals with the personal problems
of students and relationships between
the students and the school. Included
in this division are the guidance bu-
reau under Dr. C. W. Martin, and the
dean of Women, Mrs. S. H. Ellison.
Next is the division of extension ser-
vice under Mr. I. T. Angus which is
made up of four bureaus: field service,
in Which Mr. Stanley Hayden visits
and serves the high schools of the dis-
trict, correspondence and extension
teaching under Mr. W. S. Pemberton
assisted by Noah Richardson who sees
to the grading and accrediting of non-
resident studentsg placement under Mr.
Angus who aids in the placing of
graduates and alumni in teaching
positionsg alumni activities under Mr.
Clifton Cornwell who keeps a record
of our alumni and their activities.
Mr. Henry Enochs heads the busi-
ness office and is responsible for the
maintenance of grounds and build-
ings. The stenographic office where
tests, syllabi, and class materials are
typed, is also directed by the business
office. The janitors, organized under
the business office and headed by Mr.
Howard Vickroy, keep the buildings
clean, while a competent crew of car-
penters and engineers see to repairs
needed to keep the plant in condition.
A most cosmopolitan group is served by the various divisions
of the Teachers College library. There students, professors, in-
structors mingle freely. This year the library has expanded and
now includes a new periodical room for magazines and current
newspapers and a room devoted to children's literature and
Missouriana. lmprovements have been made in the main libra-
ry in Pickler Memorial Building, in the library at the Ophelia
Parrish Demonstration School, and in the library at the Green-
wood Demonstration School.
A fund of 36,000 was received by the Teachers College from
the Carnegie Foundation to assist in buying new books for the
libraries. The endowment, which is in addition to the usual state
fund given for the purchase of new books, must be used within
the next three years.
To Miss Ethel l-look, director of libraries, Miss Sylva Brown,
librarian, and Miss Clara Yadon, cataloguer, go the responsi-
bility for guiding an efficient part of the Teachers College.

When joseph Baldwin founded his academy for teachers he
did not overlook the need for actual experience in the classroom.
I-le provided a model school in which students of all ages and
grades were enrolled. Today two large schools are provided
for the observation and practice teaching of Teachers College
Greenwood Demonstration School is modern not only in its
plant but in its methods of teaching. Here, under the direction
of Dr. C. l-l. Allen, sixty-hour students and elementary education
majors observe the work of experienced teachers and put into
use some of the theories learned in the class room.
The Ophelia Parrish School, directed by Mr. Felix Rothschild,
is the center of demonstration projects. Much of the practice
teaching of college students is done in this junior high school,
which has 525 enrolled.
The modern idea of integration is carried out in the demon-
stration schools. With social science as a core subject, several
projects are now being carried on with other subjects taught
around the core, especially emphasizing their effect on man and

Since l9l2 the Student Council of the Teachers College has
been participating in the government of student affairs. All ac-
tivities receive the attention of this group of fifteen students who
meet every Week. The council duties include collecting activity
fees, arranging All-School dances, assisting in selecting and
paying for assemblies, aiding in plans for the All-School carni-
val, and securing picture shows.
This year the Student Council president is lohn X. Waters

A prime reason for the consistent clicking of the Teachers
College need not take a paragraph for explanation. A name
mentioned is sufficient if that name is Dean Louis A. Euloank.
A typical day for Dean Euloank might find him securing
another excellent assembly program, interviewing prospective
degree takers, dictating the usual letters, assisting a faculty com-
mittee, and helping arrange curricula for coming quarters and
sessions. All activities are carried out in a poised manner that
comes from experience and a Well integrated personality.

The Art department, besides turning out a new group of art
teachers each year, also gives its students the foundation they
need should they desire to study art in a special school with the
idea ot becoming professional artists.
During the course of each school year the department
sponsors three small and one large art exhibit loaned by the
American Federation of Arts. The Teachers College is a mem-
ber ot that body.
When you walk through the rooms of the art department in
its new home on the third floor of Baldwin Hall, you are literally
surrounded with color. ln one room students are designing
costumes and sets for famous plays such as Hamlet or Macbeth,
on one wall is a mural depicting a negro lodge meeting, an
easel supports a portrait of a classmate done by an art student
working in oils.
ln another room a class is studying design and working out
original figures and plates for wallpaper and tapestries, while
another group is busy with miniature looms weaving what
resemble abbreviated versions of Indian blankets, and making
HAMMER AND SAW
The Industrial Arts department of the Arts Division provides
a comprehensive training for potential Industrial Arts teachers
and craftsmen. Under the supervision of Professor B. W. Leib,
the department offers courses along four lines: drafting, wood-
working, metalworking, and educational theory. ln the first
three a foundation may be laid for one or more vocations such
as architect, engineer, machinist, carpenter, or designer.
lf a student wishes to become a draftsman, he may receive
instruction in mechanical drawing, machine drawing, architec-
tural drawing and design.
The woodworking shop provides opportunity for the student
to develop skill in the working of wood. I-le produces articles
such as tables, chairs, stands, and desks for practical use in the
ln the metalworking shop there are engine lathes, forges,
drills, grinders, electric welding equipment, and tools for pipe
fitting and for sheet metalworking. Many of the shop products
have high practical value.

Sl-IARPS AND FLATS
Music is an important element in education. Society every-
where recognizes that music is not merely a pastime, but that a
knowledge of music is considered one of the essentials of a
The music department has a threefold purpose: first, to pro-
vide a thorough, comprehensive course for those Wishing to
become teachers or to those entering a professional career, sec-
ond, to offer to students cultural courses that may be combined
with the complete literary course in the college, and third, to
give to the college community cultural advantages.
The Teachers College, long recognized as a college with an
exceptionally strong music department and faculty, is making
progress and keeping abreast of the times.
The music department housed in new Baldwin Hall has all the
facilities of a well-rounded department. New sound-proof prac-
tice rooms, new pianos, a large new practice room for choir,
band and orchestra, together with a group of music enthusiasts,
is bound to have an effect on the college.
Whether it be training on an instrument, vocal lessons or
courses in the theory of music, the music department fills every
need. Professor I. L. Biggerstaff and Mr. Kemble Stout are in
charge of piano instruction. To Dr. Barrett Stout and Mr. R. E.
Valentine belong the job of training voices. Mr. Karl Webb is
leader of the band and teaches courses in strings and brass.
Mr. Iohn Goetze instructs in the instrumental section.
With the ever increasing problem of leisure time, music is
becoming an important factor in community life. The music de-
partment wishes to so enrich the lives of the student body that
they may not only appreciate the more beautiful in music, but
may also be able to participate in its performance.
Mr. K. Stout
UNITS AND TESTS
The Division of Education lends to the Teachers College the
distinction ot being a professional as well as a liberal arts school.
The purpose of the division is to prepare students to become
teachers capable of making practical the educational theories
taught in the division. To assist in bridging the gap between
theory and practice, the Teachers College has two demonstra-
tion schools tor practice teaching. Dr. C. H. Allen is the director
of the Greenwood Demonstration School and Professor Felix
Rothschild ot the Ophelia Parrish Demonstration School.
Fortunate is the Division of Education in having as its head
Dean L. A. Eubank. Under his leadership, members of the divi-
sion have made a study of required courses in education and
have eliminated many duplicated units.
Instructors in the Division of Education are Dr. L. A. Eubank,
Dr. C. H. Allen, Miss lane Crow, Mr. Stanley Hayden, Miss Ethel
Hook, Dr. C. W. Martin, Miss Sallie Pattinson, Mr. N. W. Rickhoft,

RECIPES AND PATTERNS
The Department of Home Economics represents the oldest
institution in the World, the home. lts courses present not only
classes in dietetics and food problems, but also give practical
experience in home management. Classes in textiles, care and
training of the child, and costume design round out the
Home Economics is an ever broadening field and its curricu-
lum is constantly changing. Now, as ever, home economics
involves the study of foods and clothing, and too, the subjects of
chemistry, sociology, art, and economics.
The home management house affords a practical laboratory
for the practice of household arts. Here the girls are confronted
With the duties of real home life.
Recently a course, "Problems of Everyday Living," has been
added to the curriculum. Several boys have taken the course
and have found it highly valuable.
Dr. Llora MaGee, head of the division, teaches the household
arts, Miss Minnie Kennedy teaches the household science
The Health Department offers complete training in health
education from the teacher's standpoint. lt offers ten hours in
departmental education alone. lt equips teachers in both health
examination and supervision and administration. Also it main-
tains a clinic with modern medical equipment free to students.
The chief aim ot the department, aside from equipping stu-
dents with technical knowledge, is to show the correlation be-
tween mental and physical health and the interdependence of
the two as a basic element of success.
The department is headed by Dr. C. R. Green who is assisted
by Miss Alma Zoller, RN. and B.S. in Health Education. Miss
Zoller is in charge of laboratory work, assists in health examina-
tion, and teaches several classes. Dr. Green heads the clinic
and teaches administrative courses.
BRAWN AND PQISE
Misses Frances Fuller and Margaret Ruth Jones are in charge
of the women's physical education department. One of their
main functions is to offer adequate physical training and de-
velopment for every girl in college. They strive to develop skills
and attitudes to train college girls to live more happily.
Coaches Earl Svendsen and Malcolm Eilcen head the men's
physical education department. Besides the required physical
education course for freshmen, courses in administration and
theory of teaching physical education are offered for those get-
ting majors or minors in this field.
Tumbling, basketball, volleyball, aerial darts, badminton, ten-
nis, and football are the major sports studied in this department.
DEBITS AND CREDITS
After climbing to the third floor of Baldwin Hall and turning
to the right we find the Division of Business Education. The
division is headed by Dr. P. O. Selby, whose teaching came after
school studies and actual business experience. ln his work of
adviser to aspiring business teachers, Dr. Selby emphasizes that
they must know their skills better than the students they are to
teach know them.
Miss Freda Bruns and Miss Ruth L. Roberts complete the list
of full time business education teachers. Miss Bruns' interest in
business is held by the parade of new, time-saving devices. For
instance, she is interested in the simplified typewriter keyboard
and vertical and visible filing cases, which are being introduced
in the business field. She feels the commercial field is also a
field of extraordinary opportunity at present because of the eX-
pansion and creation of government agencies.
Miss Roberts' first love was Latin and Greek, but when her
sister came home from college and could type, her interest in
languages gave way to the typewriter, adding machine, and
NCDUNS AND VERBS
Besides the regular courses in English and American litera-
ture, and in composition, a unique course planned and taught
by Dr. Nan E. Wade and Miss Vera Eawcett is included in the
Literature and Language division. Organized in units centering
around character traits rather than around countries or periods,
the World literature course acquaints students with some of the
best literature of the World and at the same time is a powerful
influence on character building.
Especially fortunate is the College in its instructors of modern
languages. German is taught by Mr. I. W. I-leyd, Who has spo-
ken German as Well as English all his lite. Miss Wade, who
teaches French, has been Well qualified tor her position by living
a year in Erance. She holds her doctorate in that subject.
Although the demand for Latin has greatly decreased, small
classes still study Virgil and Horace under Miss Viola Magee's
Working on the principle that Writing cannot be learned from
a text book, Miss Agnes Slemons requires practically an essay
a day from students in advanced composition classes. Fresh-
man composition is taught by the laboratory plan. lts main pur-
pose is to teach incoming students the best methods of study
by use of outlining, how to write an examination, and how to do
research and Write a comprehensive paper on their findings.
This year those assisting in this work are Misses Viola Magee,
Agnes Slemons, Berenice Beggs, Vera Fawcett, Dr. Helen Ogg,
and Mr. S. l. Collins. They attempt to develop each student
according to his needs.
Although its primary purpose is to train speech teachers, the
speech department also aids students With detects in speech and
trains all students how to add resonance and modulation to their
Miss V. Magee
voices. Miss Ruth Curtis, Messrs. Clifton Cornwell, E. S. Avison,
and S. I. Collins, the speech faculty, are also vigilant in their
search for students who are likely to succeed in professional
Special training in the methods of teaching English is given
English majors loy Miss Berenice Beggs. She also directs and
assists English majors in their practice teaching.
Mr. I. W. Heyd heads the Literature and Language division
as Well as teaching German and certain English courses. The
division is ranked as one of the strongest in the State and turns
out strong teachers.

Seven faculty members devote their time to the teaching of
courses in the science division. Mr. Norvell C. Allen is full-time
instructor of agriculture, With Messrs. I. S. Stokes and Charles
Noble part-time instructors in the same department. Dr. Willis
I. Bray, who is head of the entire science division, also
heads the chemistry department. Dr. Wray M. Rieger also
teaches chemistry. Dr. Frank H. Trimble teaches physics. Dr.
Lewis Clevenger is head of the biology department.

Besides the courses falling in four departments, a course in
general astronomy is offered by Mr. I. S. Stokes, and two in
geology by Dr. Rieger.
Much of the instruction of the division of science is done by
the laboratory method. There are five different laboratories,
two for chemistry, and one each for physics, biology and agri-
culture. Here amid an atmosphere of hydrogen sulfide or
embalmed cats, work is carried on in the footsteps of Mendel,
Pasteur, Darwin, Newton, Galileo, Mendeleef, and Mosely.
With more room in the Science Hall since the opening of the
new buildings the department soon expects to double its labora-
tory space by expanding into the former art rooms. This division
has been especially crowded.
The records established by the science majors of this college
in graduate schools of different rnid-Western universities may
Well be a source of pride to the instructors of science. They show
that a sound basic training in science was obtained here.
ln conjunction with the recent development in the Teachers
College, that of two years general college Work before any pro-
fessional work is undertaken, the science division offers "Man
and the Scientific World", taught by Dr. W. I. Bray. This course,
required of all students, is intended to give a survey of and
orientation in the fields of science.

That very necessary division of study, mathematics, is

history of the subject, he says that it has been an essential back-
ground of civilization. From both necessity and interest every

Mr. lamison sees, aside from the material value of math-
ematical knowledge, a chance to acquire habits of thinking
which can and should be carried over into daily life.
Mr. W. S. Pemberton, professor of mathematics, echoes those
ideas. Mr. Pemberton believes that even it students don't get
the right answer when working problems, they should get habits
of neatness, accuracy, logical thinking, and concentration. The
answer fits only one specific problem, but those traits are at a

both personnel and building space. Two new members were
added to the faculty, and moving of other divisons left the
Pickler Memorial Library Building to social science.
Heading this division is Dr. C. H. McClure, who teaches his-

With Coach "Bud" Svendsen and Malcolm Eiken taking over
the coaching reins of the Bulldogs, the Kirksville crew played
through an eight game schedule, Winning three and losing tive.
Two ot the setbacks might have resulted in Wins had Lady Luck
smiled on the Blue and White.
The Kirksville eleven opened the season with a Win over the
Vifildcats of Culver-Stockton. A long pass, Hudson to Atwood,

got to take this Springfield outfit by
three touchdowns tonight!"

was the deciding factor. The Carthage College eleven came to
Stokes field and went home with a 3-U victory.
Tackling the first of the M. l. A. A. foes, the Bulldogs roared
through the Springfield Bears 20-O. Gregory was the "Dogs"
big offensive punch, while the entire Bulldog forward wall lived
up to its standard.
Coach Svendsen, with his band of determined warriors, next
attacked the Cape Girardeau lndians. The Bedmen had won
sixteen straight games, and had not been scored upon in the last
eleven until the Bulldogs were turned loose. The Purple and
White annexed a thrill-packed struggle 7-3. Co-Captain Boarlc
crossed the pay station from the three-yard line in the first quar-
ter. Injured Co-Captain Yaskiw was quickly shot into the game
for the extra point conversion. Gregory, Atwood, Landrum,
Parsons, and Ward contributed to the Bulldog cause.
The later-to-be champions of the conference, the Maryville
Bearcats, clawed the Bulldogs into submission 26-7. The seven
points of the Kirksville eleven was the only marker scored by a
conference team against the Bearcats.
Rolla next and a 6-2 loss in a cold, rainy, muddy struggle
with the Miners. Tadd, Rolla all-conference halfbaclq, grabbed
a pass for the first quarter touchdown. The two points were a bit
of strategy on the part of Rolla, by a safety granted in the closing
minutes. "Pets" Grisamer and Gregory were outstanding. lack

The Lions of East Texas Teachers were last on the menu for
the Bulldogs. The Lions ganged and out-classed the Kirksville
eleven for a 52-U count.
Eight returning lettermen and two new Coaches helped to
shape the destiny of the 1938-39 basketball season. ln the Mis-
souri lntercollegiate Athletic Association the Purple and White
basketeers finished fifth as they have for the past four seasons.
The Bulldogs opened the conference on the road and defeated
Rolla in a breath-taking 25-22 battle on the Miners' Court. Be-
turning home the Bulldogs played host to Springfield, Maryville,
Cape, and Warrensburg, all in less than two weeks. The Spring-
field attack smothered the Purple and White cagers in a 42-33
melee. Four nights later the College Champs from Warrensburg
hung the worst of all the season's lickings on the Kirksville club
Coach Eiken's men seemed to regain some of their lost life
as they struggled with the Maryville Bearcats on even terms for
39 minutes only to lose in the last few seconds by a 26-25 margin.
The Kirksville team, with morale badly warped, swung over
the western side of the league to challenge the two league
leaders, Springfield and Warrensburg. Springfield, via Bussell,
amassed 37 points while the Eiken men garnered 2l. The fol-
lowing night at Warrensburg the Bulldogs fared badly in the
closing minutes to take the short end of a 35-28 count.
Returning to the Kennel the Bulldogs halted a seven game
losing by trouncing the last place Miners 38-25. With only
one conference game remaining the Bulldogs embarked for
Maryville with four seniors playing their last college game. There
Kirksville defeated the Bearcats in a hard fought 30-29 contest.
In the city series with the Osteopaths the Bulldogs broke even
with one win and one loss. The first contest was won in Kirk
Auditorium 37-2l. In the return engagement at the Osteopath
gym the Doctors garnered a 24-23 win.
Four seniors, Honorary-Captain Morse, Leonard King, Elmer
Osborn, and Charles Fox completed their competition this year.
Six non-conference games were on the Bulldogs' schedule.
The Kirksville crew lost four and Won two of the encounters.
The Stickler Cardinals were the first to fall 26-l8 in the opener
for the Bulldogs. The Culver-Stockton Wildcats Were not so tame
when they clawed the Bulldogs 28-26 in Kirk auditorium.
The Stickler Cardinals Won a 42-38 victory over the Bulldogs.
The Culver-Stockton Wildcats, the next non-conference foe,
licked their chops over a well earned 32-30 victory.

Coaches Malcolm Eiken and Earl Svendsen, with the
assistance of Student Manager Leonard King, administered an
intramural program this year.
During the summer session the softball tournament Was Won
by Elmer Osborn's charges. The four-Way race proved interest-
ing to the final out of the last game.
The fall quarter Went Without intramurals, both coaches con-
centrating their efforts on football.
ln the Winter quarter program Bob Roarlds basketball team
Won the championship from a field of twenty entries. Roy Phil-
lips' club Won the volleyball tournament, While Ray Roberts Won
the ping pong singles tournament and the Roberts-King entry
The two hundred participants in the men's division give an
example of the interest and enthusiasm shown in the intramural
program. Seventy men were entered in the various four spring
quarter softball teams.
Z- Y .,
Miss Frances Fuller and Miss Margaret Tones have Worked
out an especially wide program of physical education activities
in dancing and athletics. ln the dancing activities, folk, tap, and
modern dance are offered. Sport and recreational activities vary
with the seasons. The most popular of these are archery, bad-
minton, tennis, rifle, and hiking. Other activities offered are
skating, volleyball, basketball, baseball, volleyring, bowling,
shuffle board and ping pong.
A complete major program giving a combination major in
health and education includes three quarters of freshman phys-
ical education, and the same number of quarters in theory and
practice of Women's athletics, dance, and education. This pro-
gram also includes one quarter of folk, tap, and modern dancing,
Girl Scout recreational leadership, gymnastics for Women, school
games and ten hours of health.
ln addition to requirements for majors, an advanced fourth
quarter of dance and education, materials of design and compo-
sition in the field of modern dance are offered as is also the
teaching of physical education.
An attempt is made to make the courses applicable to teach-
ing problems that the students will meet. This is accomplished
in the sports classes by requiring physcial education majors in
a theory and practice class to plan arrangements for each quar-
ter's intramural tournaments. They also officiate at games.
ln school games there is close cooperation with the staff of the
Greenwood Demonstration School, particularly good for obser-
vation in the first and second grades.
Girl Scout and recreational leadership classes organize
practical Work that may be done in the quarter. This includes
participation in camping and outing activities, and cooperating
with local Girl Scout units.

The primary function ot the Blue Key Honorary Eraternity is
to provide service to the school by a variety of activities.
Each year the organization sponsors a dance and gives the
proceeds to the Eugene Fair Memorial Loan Fund. An addi-
tional dance was sponsored this year to raise money for the
Iohn B. Kirk Memorial Fund. In the tall quarter the members
act as mentors during the freshman orientation and help the in-
coming students adjust themselves. Also the members act as
ushers on Senior Day, at the commencement exercises, and take
an active part in the school carnival.
A scholarship was inaugurated this spring which is to be
presented to some Worthy sophomore at the May convocation
Each alternate year the Blue Key publishes "The Broad-
aster," a bulletin which covers the activities and location of its
alumni. Alexander Yaskiw was the editor this year. lack Mills
is president ot the organization.
Cardinal Key, women's service organization, during this
year has awarded its annual spring quarter scholarships to two
girls, an upperclassman and a freshman. To raise this money
Cardinal Key has sponsored numerous open houses which offer
entertainment for the whole student body.
Yearly the organization assists at Senior Day and at the All-
School Carnival. During the lnaugural Reception and Ball last
May the members worked in the checkrooms. At the All-School
garden party in the summer they helped serve and this past fall
they served as ushers at the pep meeting held prior to the open-
ing of our football season.
At Christmas time the organization fills baskets which they
give to needy families. Cardinal Key also sponsored the sale
of Red Cross tuberculosis seals, a large percent of the benefits
of this sale remaining on the campus to pay for X-rays for
A maximum membership of twenty girls is maintained.

ers, usually chosen from the faculty members of the College.
Dr. Clara Clevenger, Miss Edith Dabney, and Miss Lucy Sim-
mons addressed the group during the past year. An outstanding
program was a spelling bee between ten members of Alpha Phi
Sigma against ten of Pi Qmega Pi.
Social hours with refreshments were held after most of the
regular meetings. Mr. Stanley lglayden advises Alpha Phi

W. A. A.
The Women's Athletic Association
is one of the largest organizations in
school and is open to all girls who
are interested in sports, dancing,
and outing activities.
The business of the organization
is managed by a group of six mem-
bers who plan each guarter's activ-
ities. These activities include one
tournament each quarter: in the fall,
volleyball, Winter, basketball and
badminton, spring, baseball and
field-day, and summer, tennis. Last
year, for the first time, W. A. A. spon-
sored an archery tournament.
Another activity includes the
cabin on the Chariton river. This
cabin is especially accessible to
summer school students for over-
night camping, Weelcend trips, and
suppers. For the past two summers
the organization has held a large
supper at which faculty guests and
all members of W. A. A. were pres-
ent. The cabin has been largely
furnished by W. A. A. members and
much ot the outdoor improvement
has been done by them.
Social activities consist largely of
outdoor picnics Where camp cook-
ing is the main activity. Each fall,
W. A. A. has a picnic supper to
which all freshman girls are invited.
There is also an open house during
the fall teachers' meeting. In the
Winter a Christmas party and the
annual "Flick" party are given.

the All-School Carnival, Where tor-
tunes Were told in German. Paul
Kelso served as president for the
first half-year and Iohn Martin for
the last, Mr. I. W. Heyd is sponsor.
With crises in several parts of the World, the Historical Society
did not lack interesting subjects tor the panel discussions they
sponsor at their semi-monthly meetings. All sides of the prob-
lem under discussion are presented by students on the programs.
After several students have presented special reports a round
table discussion is held by all members and guests present.
The highlight ot the year as usual was the annual banquet
held during the Winter quarter.
Ten hours social science with an M average is the require-
ment for membership. Francis Hedrick Was president of the
organization and Mr. I. T. Angus adviser. Thomas Sheehey
served as secretary until he was graduated at the end of the
Winter quarter. Willard Chambers succeeded him the spring
Over eighteen hundred hungry
youths were in line, Waiting for
something to eat. After days of Work
in preparation for them the Ellen H.
Richards Club did its yearly duty
running the bread line on High
School Senior Day.
Two meetings are held each
month, one for business and Work,
and one for fun and frolic. Two pres-
idents have helped to keep the mem-
bers active this year, Marjorie Smith
and Erma I-Iinkson.
The Art Club is composed of
nineteen active and eight honorary
members. The purpose of the club
is to promote a Wider interest and
appreciation of art.
The club meets every Wednes-
day at an informal tea and discusses
topics of interest.
The members decorated the au-
ditorium for the Christmas dance,
contributed to the Kirk Memorial

tions to the college.
Qualifications for membership
are scholarship and promise in the
field of art.

The A Cappella choir, an organization of forty members, was
active throughout the year. The choir furnished the music for
the light opera "Martha" The opera soloists, Myra lune Manes,
Georgene Payne Macso, Dallas Draper, George Kuesel, and
Bruce McRae, also came from its membership. The opera was
one of the really fine things done by the College.
The A Cappella presented various assembly programs and
also gave concerts in several schools of the district.
Mendelssohn's oratorio, 'El1jah", was presented by the choir,
together with outside singers, in May.
To Dr. Barrett Stout, director, goes the credit for the splendid
work done by the choir. The tireless effort put forth on Dr. Stout's
part and the splendid cooperation on the part of members was
manifested through the various productions given.
The school year l938-39 saw many decided improvements in
the College band organization. Under the direction of Band-
master Karl Webb, the band for the first time in years had a
band "majoress", Miss Darlene Shaw. New uniforms added
their part to the band's effectiveness. The band played at foot-
ball games, and following the baton of the Hmajoressn, per-
formed various stunts during the halves of the games.
The basketball season saw the band still on duty. lts fifty
members played music both stirring and swinging, the latter in
the form of "Tiger Rag."
During the year the band gave concerts in various schools
and colleges throughout the district, besides presenting several
The Symphony Orchestra, which is sponsored by the Teach-
ers College, is recruited from the best players in the College, the
Kirksville College of Osteopathy and Surgery, the Kirksville High
School and the community at large.
The orchestra meets Weekly to study the masterpieces of
orchestral music. While the primary function is to become
familiar with orchestral literature and to acquire experience in
playing it, the orchestra has given several public performances.
The Symphony spent many hours practicing its score for the
opera "Martha" but when all was over, everyone agreed as to
the fine quality of music presented.
Mr. Kemble Stout directed the orchestra in the absence of the
regular director, Professor I. L. Biggerstaff.

Enough insincere copy has been written concerning various
graduating classes. Suffice to say that the Teachers College has
one and that it conducted itself in an active fashion during the
ln the fall a senior tea was given. Truth present, the decora-
tions remained unsurpassed at any tea throughout the year.
Also hospitality was above reproach.
A new precedent was founded by the senior class during the
Winter when they promoted a Senior Swing, the first dance held
by a senior class. lt was a sport dance with Iimmy Parcell and
his orchestra playing.
After contributing their gift to the College, the Class of '39
left its remaining funds to be used to aid in the erection of the
