ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY
Students of the Teachers College in 1942 enter
the story by Way ot the north entrance. From there
Walks lead to all parts of the campus Where the
story of campus lite is enacted daily.
The beginning of this story covering seventy-
five eventful years was in a big frame building
known as the Cumberland Academy. The building
had been built for the old Presbyterian school but
was never occupied. lt was located on the corner
of Mulanix and Hickory Streets. The school was
christened the "North Missouri Normal School"
shortly after its birth and retained that name until
1919 when it became "The Northeast Missouri State
lust eight years after its birth the setting of the
story of college life changed to Baldwin Hall.

institution west of the Mississippi river devoted primarily to the

OTED TO A GREAT IDEAL
An all-embracing idealism guided Baldwin in shaping his pioneer institution. Said he, "to
elevate teaching from the position of a vacillating empiricism to that of the chief of the arts is
the worlds supreme work". With emphasis upon sound scholarship in the great fields of knowl-
edge, a thorough understanding of the facts and processes of professional education, and ex-
pertly directed experiences in the laboratory school, he cut the pattern for the American
Teachers College as it is known throughout the World today.
Seven administrations have kept faith in this far-reaching
ideal and in this pattern for teacher education. From this

Board ut Regents
As We consider seventy-tive years of progress for the North-
east Missouri State Teachers College, the Board of Regents must
be especially considered. As the highest administrative unit
of the Teachers College, the Board deserves many congratula-
tions for what has been done.
Policies and activities through the years have been largely
decided by them. Teachers and instructors of the years past
and of the present have functioned under the Board's direction.
From the acquisition of the actual site for the campus down
through the years until the lohn R. Kirk Memorial, it is the Board
that has handled the practical angle of campus improvement.
The Board of Regents is composed of six members from vari-
ous parts of the district and the Missouri State Superintendent

May 19, l938, was a great day on the campus with the lay-
ing of the cornerstone of the new Baldwin Hall, as well as the
inauguration of the seventh president, Walter H. Ryle. The
inaugural ceremony was held in Kirk Auditorium after which
the cornerstone was laid on the northeast corner of the new
building. At noon there was a reunion of the class of 1916 of
which President Ryle was a member.
Governor Lloyd C. Stark gave the main address at the lay-
ing of the cornerstone with State Superintendent of Schools
Lloyd W. King presiding. The service was conducted by the
Grand Lodge ot Masons. Echos, bulletins, manuscripts ot ad-
dresses, and historical documents were placed in a copper box
in the cornerstone.
Members of the cornerstone committee were Dr. P. O. Selby,
Dr. W. I. Bray, Mr. I. W. I-leyd, and Mr. W. S. Pemberton.
Later in February, 1939, with the completion ot the building,
open-house was he1d.
Baidwin Hall houses the administrative offices and the lan-
guage, music, and business education departments.
Baldwin Hall Then
Ground was broken for the old Baldwin Hall on May 17,
1871, with special services. With the laying of the cornerstone
on September 6 more elaborate exercises were held. Students,
faculty, bands, and townspeople marched in a parade to the site
of the new building. Among those giving addresses were Presi-
dent Baldwin, State Superintendent Monteith, and Colonel Nor-
man 1. Coleman.
Cn the memorable day of lanuary 15, 1873, the entire school
marched from the old Cumberland Academy in the northern sec-
tion of Kirksville to occupy the new building on the present site
of the campus. Dedicatory services were held in the chapel on
February 13, 1873, with Dr. B. D. Shannon as representative of
Governor Woodson, giving the principal address. During the
exercises President Baldwin reminded the people of Kirksville
that in his first address in Kirksville six years before he had
asserted that with proper encouragement his school would be-
come a credit to the state.
This building, named in honor of loseph Baldwin, was the
only building of the school until 1901 when the first annex was
built on the northeast side. It was a two story brick building of
the French-Normal style of architecture with a tower one hun-
dred and twenty-six feet high visible for many miles around.

Students in the act of learning of another age and those of
the present are shown here. Hair styles and costumes are dif-
ferent, of course, but the students are much the same. The real
change has come in the opportunities and facilities offered to
The history of the Teachers College is one of continued
growth in curriculum and instruction for the training of teachers.
After loseph Baldwin made arrangements for using the old
Cumberland Academy building, he selected the following five
persons as the first instructors: Professor and Mrs. F. L. Ferris,
Mr. and Mrs. I. M. Greenwood, and Prof. W. P. Nason. Now in
l942 the faculty numbers between sixty and seventy persons
with a corresponding increase in courses offered.
Under the present organization the curricula are offered for
a two-year course for rural and four year courses for elementary
teachers, high school teachers and the Bachelor of Arts degree.
ln the early years of the college, library facilities were
extremely meager and it was during President Blanton's admin-
istration that a beginning was made. The first state appropria-
tion was 32,500 in l89U, which was used for departmental
libraries. ln l9U3 a large new building was constructed, and
all books were classified under the Dewey decimal system with
Miss Ophelia Parrish as librarian. ln l924-l925 the Pickler
Memorial Library was erected.

More of the Senior Star
I don't look so bad in the old mortar board, do I? . . . Hope
I can live up to that good old adjective dignified on the 20th . . .
I'm keeping my fingers crossed though till they separate the
sheepskins from the goats that don't graduate . . . That diploma
is one autograph everyone has got to collect . . . After that I'm
in the doubtful category known as an alumnus . . . Nothing to
do but go out and do great things.
After that last long march I'm on my own . . . No more cram
conferences with a borrowed test . . . No more stretches of pro-
bation at Iunior High hoping the kids won't yell "Why wasn't
Asquith a liberal" when you're not sure what a liberal is . . .
By the way who is Asquith? . . . No more getting to Thursday
noon with 35 cents left and no check from home in sight till Sun-
day . . . I know we had him back there in . . . Gosh, I hate to
pack up and stick my thumb out for the last time . . . Gosh, I'll
miss the campus . . . No more waiting for the red tulips to come
out . . . No more ambling across the big walk to IO o'clocks
yelling to everybody . . . I'll miss Ioe Baldwin standing out
there keeping his eyes on things . . . But I guess I'm getting
sentimental already . . . No time for that now with that super-
intendent to meet in ten minutes at the placement office . . . I
wish I could have some of Ianet Leslie's professional attitude
. . . and I've got to find someone to give my money for the por-
trait of Pres. Dobson . . . The last four weeks are more hectic
than the rest of the whole four years . . . I've got to get some
things cleaned to look decent at the senior reception . . . And
Gai1's recital is tomorrow night . . . and oh yes, I've got to see
the draft board . . . To see whether I spend the year around a
blackboard or a blackout.

The smallest class in school is what we are. lt's always
juniors which they never aren't when they go through in three

We've been here three years now and we're good judges of
things . . . we've given three teas and we're the best dainty
jugglers this side of the faculty . . . Prexie Floren Thompson car-
ried away LaBel1e Tittle on the sea of matrimony and didn't stop
till he reached Hickman I-ligh's music job in Columbia . . . Thus
from spring quarter on we had a female president as Iane lar-
man left the vice-presidency to Kenny Kurz and took over the
executive duties . . . Gloria Waters lost a true love to the Army
when Kenneth Gardner, football captain-elect, went to Fort Sill,

dents, old enough to be drafted, and old enough to be married
. . . It sort of gave us that professional attitude . . . More girls
wore hose and more fellows coats . . . We're improving-we'll
be teachers yet if the Army doesn't get us COuchlD . . . We even
got to classes on time this year . . . And Iack Drennan bought
a brief case to carry to I-lurdland while he taught there during
the spring quarter . . . Mr. Barnett and Miss Llora McGee
squired us through a marvelous year . . . Golly, just one more
year and we'll wear ye olde mortar boarde.

Alpha Sigma Alpha
Alpha Beta Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha, the oldest soror-
ity on the Teachers College campus, celebrated its twenty-
eighth anniversary this year. Alpha Beta Was first organized
as a local, Kappa Theta Psi, and in l9l4 was installed as a part
of the national sorority of Alpha Sigma Alpha.
The Kappa Theta Psi organization had been formed by a
group of Kirksville girls in the Ringo residence on the site of the
old Cumberland Academy.
The national organization was founded November l5, l9Ul,
at State Female Normal School, Farmville, Virginia, by five Vir-
ginia girls. Alpha Beta chapter celebrates this event each year
with a formal dinner. In l9U3 it was chartered as a national
sorority. At a convention at Miami University in 1914 the soror-
ity restricted its chapters to teachers colleges and schools of
education in universities.
Social activities for the present year started with the gypsy
dance. As a Christmas treat the pledges entertained the ac-
tives with a dance in Sociability Hall. The Alpha tribute to
St. Valentine this year was a sport dance in line with national
economy rather than the usual formal dance.

Delta Sigma Epsilon
Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Epsilon, a member of the As-
sociation of Education Sororities, was organized at Miami Uni-
versity, Oxford, Ohio, by seven girls on that campus. The Beta,
Gamma, and Delta chapters were added early in l9l6 and the
first two conclaves were held within that year. The first con-
clave was at Miami University and since that time biennial
conclaves have been held.
Iota chapter of D.S.E. was organized Ianuary 29, l92l, by
Miss Lucy Simmons and thirteen girls on the Teachers College
campus. Since then 280 girls have been initiated. The active
chapter now is composed of twenty-six members.
A formal Plantation Dance complete with pickaninnies pre-
siding over the punch bowl and a Dude Ranch Luncheon
featuring plaid skirts, ten gallon hats, and a hay ride afterwards
were the high lights of DSE. rush season. Twelve girls pledged
and all except two are now active members.
A Patriotic Dance was given by appreciative pledges and
the year's activities will be topped off with a sport dance in the

Pi Kappa Sigma
Pi Kappa Sigma was founded November l7, l894, at Michi-
gan State Normal College, Ypsilanti, by Georgia Fox, a stu-
dent, and thirteen companions. Their idea in forming the
organization was to enjoy themselves socially and improve
intellectually, so Pi Kappa Sigma, the oldest National Educa-
tional Sorority, had a commendable beginning.
ln l9l5, the policy of Pi Kappa Sigma was broadened with
the idea of giving the Teachers College girl a social sorority.
Pi Kappa Sigma became a member of the Association of Educa-
tion Sororities in l9l7.
A group of girls in l923-24, who were Home Economics
majors, tried to start an honorary Home Economics organization
on the Teachers College campus. Since they did not have
enough majors, it could not be established.
They then Wrote to the Grand Council of Pi Kappa Sigma,
asking for the establishment of a chapter in Kirksville. After
receiving the signatures of the college administrators on their
petition and having chosen Miss Bracy Cornett tor their sponsor,
the girls were able to organize Pi Chapter. The initiation pledge
service was held july 25, l924. Formal initiation was held luly
Since that date 227 girls have been initiated into Pi chapter.

Sigma Sigma Sigma
Mu chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma is twenty-seven years
old this year. Cn Nov. 26, 1915, a group of girls met in the ball-
room of the Charles Still home and the local sorority, Sigma
Delta Chi, became Tri Sigma.
Tri Sigmas turn pirate every fall and walk the plank for
rushees. This year clowns followed pirates in rush activities
as the progressive luncheon centered around a circus theme . . .
balloons, peanuts, and stuffed animals-result nineteen super
Pledges entertained at a Christmas party at the house and
later splurged for the actives with a Victory Prom.
All were busy national defenders, knitting and collecting
license plates-actives challenged pledges in collecting contest
and went down in defeat giving a party for their "little sisters."
No sorority spring formals were held this year because of
the war, so all efforts centered on the Pan-Hellenic formal. The
Sigmas played lack and fill at a Story Book informal dance.
The annual Founders Day banquet celebrated the sorority's
forty-fourth birthday and was extra-special, following a news-

Sigma Tau Gamma
Sigma Tau Gamma in 1942 celebrates its fiftieth year as an
educational social fraternity. Until l92l it existed on this campus
as Phi Lambda Epsilon. E. M. Violette was the first initiate. ln
l92l that group affiliated with the National organization of Sigma
Tau Gamma as Beta chapter. There are now twenty-seven
chapters in teachers colleges throughout the middle West. ln
its 50 years as an organization Beta chapter has initiated over
800 men. Pres. Eugene Fair was one of its first initiates and six-
teen of its alumni are now on the college faculty.
Sigma Tau Gamma is professional in its scope, its activities,
and in its relation to instruction, and chapters are located only
in accredited four year teachers colleges. As a teachers college
fraternity it is the oldest and largest in the United States.
This year Sigma Tau Gamma has enjoyed a Wide social
program including an open house for alumni, smokers, annual
l49er dance, turkey dinner for rushees, picnics, and informal
get-togethers. The year climaxed with the annual spring formal

The Pre-Osteopathic club was organized Ianuary ll, 1940.
The purpose of the club is to promote friendship and cooperation
between the pre-osteopathic students in the Teachers College
and the students of K.C.O.S. and to promote interest in oste-
opathy as a profession.
The club is composed of twenty members who are taking a
pre-osteopathic course prior to their entrance into the school of
Osteopathy. The prerequisites for entrance into the club include
taking an oath of the intention of becoming an osteopath and
undergoing a formal initiation.
Every two weeks the club holds a business meeting which
features a speaker, either from the Teachers College or the
Osteopathic School. Among speakers who have addressed the
club this year are Dr. Warner, dean at K.C.O.S., and Dr. Pearson,
also of K.C.O.S.
Social: A sport dance on March 6, with President and Mrs.
Ryle, Dr. and Mrs. M. D. Warner, and Dr. Mildred Gelbach as
A national honorary fraternity, Blue Key dedicates itself to
the function of service to the school. The local chapter was
organized in December, 1925 Conly a year and a half after the
birth of the national organizationl. The main purpose of the
original chapter of Blue Key was to help sponsor Homecoming
activities. The local chapter has for the past three years reverted
to the original purpose as their main activity.
Another tradition that Blue Key has helped to create on the
campus is that of Citizenship Recognition Day. This year, for
the second time, college students, who have within the past year
reached the age of citizenship in the nation were honored in a
special assembly program stressing the privileges and duties of
citizenship. At this year's event the principal speaker was Roe
Other activities and projects of the organization include a
special Blue Key scholarship awarded each year to an outstand-
ing sophomore boy, a student loan fund, and ushering at various
events throughout the year. Expenses are met by a gala benefit
dance held annually.
Officers: President, Bob Mills, Vice president, Mark Harri-
son, Secretary, Gerald Wilgus.
Cardinal Key is a national women's service organization
founded by Major Riley at the University of Florida in l932.
Two years later the Kirksville chapter was established and held
its first meeting on February l2, l934.
Blue Key formally installed the chapter on April 26, 1934.
The charter members of Cardinal Key were: Mildred McClure,
Iosephine Hewitt, Bonnie O'Donnel1, Twyla Freeman, Leona Bol-
ton, Frances Laughlin, Catherine Bramblet, Anna Belle Pitney,
Maxine laynes, and Martha Shirley.
The first officers were: president, Mary Ellen Stout, secre-
tary, Elizabeth Farrington, treasurer, Fern Harrington, and ser-
geant-at-arms, Margaret Case.
The activities of this sorority have been varied. It has held
open house often since the first one in October, l934. The year
after Cardinal Key was organized here, a system of scholar-
ships for girls was established at Kirksville. Two scholarships
have been awarded each year since that time.
The local chapter is known as the Eugene Fair chapter in
memory of the former president of the college.
Officers: President, Ida May Redkey, Vice President, Eliza-
beth Burns, Secretary, Ianet Leslie, Treasurer, Mary E. Cook.
Kappa Delta Pi
Kappa Delta Pi is an honorary professional fraternity.
Scholarship, character, and promise in the field of education are
the qualities on which members are chosen. In function the
organization serves the teachers college field much as Phi Beta
Kappa does in Universities.
The local chapter, one of 98 throughout the United States
was established on the campus March l8, l9ll.
Recorded in the minutes of this year's meetings are such
varied events as bi-monthly meetings in which informative pro-
grams, discussions of educational problems and social activities
alternate, two alumni banquets, during the fall District Teachers
Meeting and again in February when new members were
initiated, and the awarding of an annual scholarship to the
freshman with the highest scholastic rank.
Mrs. Pauline Knobbs, sponsor, attended the national conven-
tion of the organization during February of the present year.
The constitution of the local chapter was revised also during the

Alpha Phi Omega, a service organization based around
Boy Scout ideals, performs service for the school and community.
The members are former Boy Scouts or other men who promise
to live by the Boy Scout laws.
Alpha Phi Omega was founded at Lafayette College in East-
ern Pennsylvania, December l6, l925. Since its founding the
service fraternity has been expanded until it now has over one
hundred chapters scattered about the country. The chapter at
the Teachers College is the Epsilon chapter.
The members act as ushers at assemblies and games, carry
on Red Cross drives, hold open houses, make improvements on
the campus, conduct a finger printing project on the campus

In May, 1923, a meeting of thirteen commercial students of
the Teachers College was called by Dr. P. O. Selby, head of the
business education department. There was need for an organi-
zation of some kind among prospective teachers and this meet-
ing came as a result.
Through discussion of commercial organizations it was de-
cided that the way to perfect a permanent organization, one
which would hold its members together and would grow, was
through a fraternity rather than a commercial club or society. As
there was no national fraternity which met the needs of this
group, this group decided to form one.
The efforts have been rewarded as this chapter has initiated
a total of 325 students since l923. There are more than 6,000
students in 54 different chapters scattered throughout the United
The main interest of this honorary fraternity is business edu-
cation, and the members are selected on the basis of this interest
and on scholarship. This fraternity has a national convention
every two years to which this chapter sends delegates.
ln the past, this chapter had the privilege of 'initiating one
honorary member, Miss Marjorie Prank. This year it was hon-
ored by receiving into the chapter another honorary member,
Mrs. P. O. Selby, wife of the founder of Pi Omega Pi.

Smart, Eleanor Phelps, Secretary, Martha Taggart, Treasurer,

The first officers of Alpha chapter and also the first national offi-
cers were: Byron Cosby, president, Margaret O'Briant, secretary,
Henrietta Budasill, treasurer. Our present sponsor, Mr. Noah
Richardson, was a charter member. One of the guiding lights
of the organization has been the list of reasons for a scholarship
organization stated by President Eugene Fair of our college.
One reason which has been used as an objective of the national
organization is "To furnish a worthy incentive to the mainte-
nance of high scholarship after matriculating for college work,
by providing opportunities of entrance into this organization."
The local chapter has had a successful year alternating edu-
cational and social meetings. Outstanding meetings of the year
were: Miss Leucht's program on "Pottery" and Mr. Kemble
Stout's program "Swing vs. the Classics." The chapter pre-
sented the annual scholarship to the outstanding member of the

PI KAPPA DELTA
READERS ROUND TABLE
Speech Education is not new upon this campus. The first
K.N.S. Bulletin describes a course in speech throughout the year
for each of the four years. However, the College Players and
the Readers Round Table were not organized until much later.
C. M. Wise and others in Prof. E. R. Barrett's class in Shakespeare
organized the Dramatics Club. In 1923 the Thalian Guild was
revived as an honorary group within the club for the members
who took plays on the road. About l928 the name was changed
to College Players.
This year's president, Don Powell, and the other officers,
have directed a program of one-acts and one three-act play.
The latter part of the year has been devoted almost entirely to
scene construction for the spring pageant.
In l935 five or six people who liked poetry gathered with
Prof. E. S. Avison to read for their own enjoyment. The name
Readers Round Table attached itself to the group, and year by
year it has grown to a membership of about 30 people. This
year, Marjorie Deierling read original poetry in the Midwest
Tournament and janet Leslie placed second in the Ted Malone
Officers: President, janet Leslie, Vice president, Oakley Eth-
ington, Secretary, jean Simpson.
Theta Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta was founded on the Col-
lege campus in 1930, when the national convention at Wichita
accepted the petition of the Kirksville group for an organization
of sixteen members.
Since l93l Theta Chapter has never missed either a pro-
vincial or a national tournament of Pi Kappa Delta. lt was repre-
sented at the national meeting this year by a men's debate team
and by Mr. Sherod Collins and Clifton Cornwell.
Every fall the local Chapter sponsors a freshman tourna-
ment in which all debaters who have not previously engaged in
college competition may participate.
This year, Lundy Allen ranked .first in extemporaneous
speaking at the state tournament held in Springfield. Ratings
of superior were received by the senior men's team and the
junior women's team at the same tournament.
Since its founding twelve years ago Pi Kappa Delta has
reached a membership of 100 students.

The A Cappella Choir is an organization of selected singers
that rehearses twice each week. Membership is obtained by
try-outs at the beginning of the fall term. Other members are
accepted during the school year to fill vacancies. During the
course of the year the choir gives concerts in towns of northeast
Missouri and occasionally makes more extended trips.
The A Cappella Choir was organized in l93U. During the
twelve years of its existence approximately 300 different individ-
uals have been members of the organization. Following are
some of the most important appearances of the choir: Missouri
State Teachers Association, Kansas City, Missouri State Music
Teachers Association, Columbiag Washington University, St.
Louis, National Music Association, Lincoln, Nebraskag Music Edu-
cators National Conference, Tulsa, Okla.g Broadcast over KMOX,

The Choir is not limited to music majors and minors but any
student in college may try out. Some of the best singers the
organization has enrolled have been majors in other fields.
Dr. Barrett Stout is director.
The present concert band has a real and eventful history.
Prior to l929, the band was extra-curricular and had only stu-
dent conductors. Prof. B. E. Valentine took charge of the band
and started it on its way. In l937 Prof. Karl Webb became con-
ductor and has had much to do with the present symphonic
band. The present uniforms were adopted in the Fall of 1937,
but before that time capes and caps were the uniform.
Many are the activities of the band. The quarterly concerts
feature music majors as soloists. Other appearances are at the
pep meetings, rallies, football, and basketball games. Then
there are those trips with the football teams, especially that one
when We defeated the University of Missouri.
The band is proud of its list of out-of-town concerts at such
places as Christian College and Moberly junior College. Many
of the most successful music teachers in the state are former
members of the band.
The Regimental Band of the Fourth Infantry of the Missouri
State Guard is composed of 24 men, most of whom are students
in the Teachers College, and is directed by Prof. Karl Webb.
Organized in February, l94l, this uniformed organization
has trained 49 men in the rudiments of military music and march-
ing. lt has sponsored dances and played for military functions
in keeping with its purpose as set forth in War Department regu-
lations to boost morale.

tional Guard before the National Guard was called to service.
Dr. Wray Reiger organized the company in September l94l.
Dr. Reiger was elected captain, Pres. Walter H. Ryle, first
lieutenant, and Frank R. Truitt, second lieutenant. Later Dr.
Reiger was appointed major of the First Battalion and accepted
a commission, Pres. Ryle was transferred to the Inspector Gen-
eral Department on the state staff, and Mr. Truitt was transferred
to Battalion adjutant. The present staff is Superintendent of
Schools Harvey Neville, captain, Robert Wright, first lieutenant,

l94l Lieutenant Karl Webb organized the Fourth Infantry Band.
1 SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA -
The Kirksville Symphony Orchestra, which is sponsored by
the college, is composed of players in the Teachers College, in
the Kirksville College of Osteopathy and Surgery, the Kirksville
High School, and the community at large.
This orchestra was famous many years ago under the direc-
tion of Mr. Iohannes Goetze. The present orchestra, however,
grew from a small group who met weekly with Prof. I. L. Bigger-
staff to become familiar with masterpieces of orchestral music.
Quarterly concerts have been a regular function of the or-
chestra since the spring of l93O. While its primary purpose is
still to offer to its members the opportunity to become familiar
with orchestra literature and to acquire experience in symphonic
playing, the orchestra takes pride in its reputation as a solo unit
and as an accompaniment for operas and oratorios.

Rumor has it that football history will repeat itself. lt is
well known that this old College has had its share of the victories
and glories of football. The reign of Don Faurot and his brother,
Fred, will go down in history as producing the greatest football
teams this school has ever known. The l932, l933, and l934
teams were teams that almost chalked up a national record with
their 27 consecutive victories. That was the greatest feat ever
achieved by this institution in football supremacy.

The famous team of Curly McWilliams in l9U8 won every
game. His team in l9l6 won undisputed championship of the
M.l.A.A. for the first time. Three times between l9l9-l925 the
team tied for the state championship and in l924 won the undis-
puted championship. The Faurot regime began in 1925.
lust a word about the fighting spirit of those men who repre-
sented the College on the gridiron this year. When men, big and
powerful, cry like babies for a chance to get into the game and
Fight for their school, when hearty men, blinded from blow and
injury, tired and exhausted, sob and plead for a chance to stay
in the game, is it any wonder then that this school has produced
great football teams and is it any wonder they will continue to
produce such teams?

Vikings rolled up 20-40 points against their opponents. Upper
Iowa next-they led at the half 6-0 but the Dogs outlasted and
outplayed the Iowans in the last half to win 14-6.
A long trip to Conway, Arkansas, tired out the Bulldogs, and
a game played in a light rain in 85 degree temperature wore
them down. Conway held them on the l-yard line in the mud
and their halfback got loose for 60 yards in the last quarter.
The game ended 2-6 in Arkansas' favor.
Cape Indians were outcharged and outplayed. Bohmbach's
running and the fine defensive play of Ligon and Axt helped the
Dogs amass 20 points to Cape's 7.
Springfield-a heart breakerl Behind 13-0 at the half, the
Dogs led 14-13 in the fourth quarter and lost in the last 8 sec-
onds. Pinal score 14-19 for the Bears.
Iowa Wesleyan-ahead 13-7 with five minutes to go. Then
Bohmbach and Shoopman ran 40 yards apiece, Shoopman even-
tually carrying the ball over. Dogs won 14-13.
Warrensburg-Yes, they had a big line and a good kicker.
They won in the mud with a defensive game 6-0.
Maryville: The most hard fought of the season's hard fought
games. The score ended 0-0 before their Homecoming crowd.
The fine determined spirit of all the Dogs characterized the game.
Biddled with injuries, the Dogs lost to Rolla 20-0.
The season closed with a fine football banquet at the Trav-
elers, with Grover Morgan the guest speaker.
Kenneth Gardner was unanimously elected football captain
for the coming season, and soon left to work for Uncle Sam at
Port Sill, Okla.
Coaches Eiken and Noble awarded 24 letters to the '41 edi-
tion of Bulldogs.
Iohn Ligon, center, was placed on the first all-conference
team. Bob Mills, guard, and Clif Bohmbach, halfback, were
awarded berths on the all-conference second team.
CAGE GAME COIVIES OF AGE

campus than any other sport, basketball the sport which Weekly
during the Winter months fills Kirk Auditorium to capacity, is a

ball was first played as a varsity sport th
on e campus in 1918
just 18 years after football made its appearance. Since 1920,
the team has been an annual thing, and its history includes

Basketball 1941-42 Edition
According to Bobby Burns, mice and men often make plans.
They "gang aft agley." So was it with the current cage court.
When fans started figuring up what the knights of the hardwoods
who would wear the Purple and White of K.S.T.C., they saw one
of the topnotch teams of the M.l.A.A. They were still right when
the '42 edition went out on the court, as far as the fight and cour-
age of cage scrappers was concerned.
The total of games won and lost for the season stood in favor
of the Dogs, with 15 games in the win column and only seven
games on the losing side, but in the conference Coach Malcolm
Colberg Eiken's Bulldogs took only fourth place. The two "D's,"
draft and defense, played havoc with the Bulldogs this year.
Clifford "Tish" Bohmbach, speed merchant of the M.l.A.A.
and outstanding defensive man, had to quit school during the
Christmas vacation. His draft board said so. Tish later got
into the Naval Reserve in Physical Education Work under Lieut-
Commander Tunney. Another blow to the fans was that George
"The Gunner" Nelmark, decided not to return to school for bas-
ketball. Instead he played pro ball with last years Pro Champs.
Coach Eiken depended on seven boys to play his games this
season. The seven boys who lettered were led by lohn Shores,
six-feet-four basket shark who led the M.l.A.A. in points scored,
netting 117 points. Shores made his total in nine games, missing
the last one. Yes, the army got him, the Army Air Corps. Billy
Stock, one of the best liked players on the squad, was at the
height of his cage career, as he wowed the fans with his lofty,
two hand set shots that swished the strings without touching the
McClellan "Doc" Sooter, that blond who fought for every
rebound down around the basket was a valuable player, and
along with Shores and Stock is a senior. Bert Lane, scrapping
junior guard, played most of the games. Iunior Whalen, rough
and ready freshman guard, was the find of the season. Bob
Stewart, lanky sophomore forward, and Gerald King, Soph for-
ward, also earned their letters for the first time.
The Dogs lost six and won four in the conference and won
12 and lost one out of the conference. During the season they
twice defeated Missouri-Valley, a team which won the first two
rounds of the national cage tourney in Kansas City. The games
of the year were not hard to pick, that thrilling one point victory
of the K.C.O.S. Rams and that other game which marked the
lowest of despair, that disappointing one-point loss to the Bear-
cats of Maryville. lncidentally that game was the fourth in as
many years that the Cats had taken the Dogs by one point.
All in all, fans had a fine display of basketball this season
as the dogs turned in some thrilling games.

Uphelia Parrish Demonstration School
On the northwest corner of the campus stands the Ophelia
Parrish building. Back of this structure is the story of years of
work and sacrifice on the part of some of our college's most far-
seeing educators. The story goes back to the old "training" or
This model school was established in 1867 in connection with
the State Normal school and was maintained until December,
1873, when it was discontinued. ln November, 1882, it was re-
stored and renamed "Training School."
In 1925 the practice teaching system was reorganized and
grades 7-9 centralized in Ophelia Parrish.
Finally in 1938 the new Ophelia Parrish building was erected
adjacent to the old Ophelia Parrish. Prof. Felix Rothschild is
director and Miss lane Crow is principal.

eight were sent from Greenwood to the Iunior High campus.
Prof. N. W. Rickhoff was the first director of the new set-up
at Greenwood. Greenwood, under his leadership, was de-
veloped under the informal and socialized plan of handling boys
The present fine structure at Greenwood was built in 1936.
Dr. C. H. Allen is the present director.
-- STUDENT CQUNCIL ---
The Governmental organization of the students dates back
to l9l5 when a constitution providing for a student council and
a senate was adopted. All resident students served as members
of the council, and the senate consisted of representatives of all
student organizations with the officers of the council.
Another organization called the Students Association of the
Teachers College came in l923. It consisted of a league for both
men and women, the student council, the student court and
In l926 student government as it now exists was organized.
At that time the two leagues were eliminated and a single execu-
tive body established.

The name Echo was tirst used as the
name for the year book on this campus
in 1902. Since that time each year a
new record ot college activity has been
published. ln a prologue of one ot the
earliest Echos the purpose of the book
is stated as a true reflection on student
life. Now in 1942 this purpose remains
The structural make-up has changed
through the years with each Echo tell-
ing the story ot its era. ln the older
books there are class histories, mottoes,
and original poetry. Literary and de-

books are streamlined and cover a
wide range of activity, but the spirit is
still the same.
