Senior Class History We, like all the classes that proceeded us, look back upon that bright day in Sep- tember, 1936, when We as eager, curious, freshmen made our way to our first classes. We plunged into our work with a desire to fight and win, filled with enthusiasm. The upper classmen thought that they could im- mediately down that spirit by razzing us, but we gave them their surprise by winning the traditional tug-of-war. It wasn't long until the members of our class tossed aside their green caps! Slowly, but surely, we found our way into the school's program. There were members of our class on the football, basketball, and track teams. The year ran smoothly with such leaders as Helen Baumgartner, presi- dent, James Gill, vice-president, Dorothy Triller, secretary, and Francis Eberhart, treas- urer. The University was confident that this class would make its place in the life of its activities. Ninety-two members of the class returned as sophomores to carry on and uphold the hue showing it had made the first year. Again the rope had gone over the line our way in the tug of war, to give us new con- Hdcnce with which to face the three years ahead. Elected to fill the posts of leader- ship were: Robert Dick, president, Dorothy Banks, vice-president, Helen Morrison, sec- retary, and Fletcher Condit, treasurer. From the ranks had come the captain of the 1938 football team, and the presidents of several organizations. We were again well repre- sented in the various athletic activities, the choir, dramatics and religious functions. Trans. from College Hradec, Kralove, Czechoslovakia. With the entrance into the junior year came new responsibilities. We realize that other classes may have done better and are doing better, but we too took away trophies, kept up a good scholastic standing, did our part in activities, edited one of the finest "Keys" up to date, and sponsored, we think, the best junior Prom that was ever held on the campus. We give credit to john Camp- bell, editor of the "Key," and to William Grings, the host of our Prom. In the Y. W. C. A., we deserve to give our hand of congratulations to Marian Swalve, who guid- ed it so carefully. The officers for this year were: William Grings, presidentg Frances Bajema, vice-president, Violet Leuthold, sec- retaryg and J. Edward Dirks, treasurer. Our senior year began with the electing of William Grings, president, Kay Dewey, vice- presidentg Lois Lange, secretaryg Francis Eb- erhart, treasurer. Again our leaders went into the different activities with renewed responsibilities, and we are proud to say that all of them have found great success in their endeavors. Now it is our turn to bid "Adieu" to our Alma Mater, of which we are proud, and which we regret to leave. We, too, have run our course with its many experiences, some of them happy ones, and of course, many of them difiicult, but not one which has not made us a bit broader and more As we leave friends, groups, pro- human. fessors, classrooms, and organizations, it is with true regret that we now turn from this, our University, to our world, but we are proud that we were members of the Class of 1940. pug? forly GUERNEY ALZENO Stockton, Illinois GEORGIA BAKER Farley, Iowa HILDA BALSTER Monticello, Iowa RUTH BAUMAN Winthrop, Iowa TOM BELL Dubuque MARGARET BOMGARDNER Unionville, Missouri n gf mix nm' MARY ISOVVMAN Benton, W'isconsin IDONALD BOYD Roland, Iowa DOROTHY BOYD Roland, Iowa FRANK BUCKLITY Chicago, Illinois ATTILIO CARDUCCI Dubuque I.lfAI'I CON ZIZTT Dubuque un'r C744 unior CIMA MILTON CON ZIZTT Dubuque MARGERY DEALE Babylon, New York ARLINE DIETERICH Dubuque S.

Since that day, a vast array of students, activities, and accomplishments have passed in review, until today we find ourselves in the Junior parade with our banner, "Forward, Always Forward," still leading the procession. We halt but for a moment to reminisce. In retrospect, the Class of 1941 views the day we entered the University portals with an enrollment far surpassing all previous rec- ords. Although we were non-victorious in the tug-of-war, we represented a united front, which to this day has led our class to heights of glory. Largely through our freshman football stars, was the team strengthened to place third in the Iowa Conference. We were victors in basketball and volleyball tourna- ments, in swimming, and in track meets. We figured in wrestling also. In other fields, too, did freshman talent manifest itself. In debate, choir, orchestra, band, and other campus organizations were our contributions great. The oflicers who so ably led the par- ade of events and activities were Erwin Schwartz, president, Alice Rabenburg, vice- president, Robert Spencer, secretary-treasurer. Returning to the campus as Sophomores, our leadership was again profoundly felt. Our excellence in the field of music, debate, athletics, and scholarship, attained even great- er heights. In varsity football, basketball, wrestling, and track our men showed their prowess. The sophomore basketball team fig- ured as victors in the intramural tournament, too, and our class was further honored by winning the Blue and White Club prize for Homecoming decorations. To add to our prestige a lovely co-ed, Miss Hilda Balster, was elected Homecoming queen. To lead us, we elected Nate Dodge, president, Hilda Balster, vice-president, Ray Stumbaugh, sec- retary-treasurer, Robert Besch, athletic man- ager. j page fortg sewn As Juniors, our procession, in full array, has marched along the pathway of glory to heights hitherto unsurpassed. Again we are actively and enthusiastically participating as groups and individuals in all phases of college life. This year has witnessed the varsity bas- ketball team, captained by Erwin Schwartz, the football team, headed by Gene Werkheis- er, and the wrestling team, led by Milton Conzett, all of which are strengthened by a host of other notable junior athletes. In the field of instrumental music, Miss Ruth Bau- man has received the praise of many admirers, while in vocal music, Miss Winnifred Young has done admirable work. Band, orchestra, and choir are composed of many of our num- ber. Dramatics and oratory have not found junior talent lacking either, for Harold Nagel has continually received the limelight. In other fields of endeavor, too, is our class ably repre- sented. We boast of great diversity among our ranks: Miss Margery Deale is editor of the Cue, Miss Louise Eisenschmidt, Key edi- tor, Miss Georgia Baker, YWCA president, and Guerney Alzeno, YMCA president. The newly created U-Clan is comprised of many juniors, while the reorganized Student Coun- cil finds Miss Ruth Bauman and William Proudfoot ably representing our class. "Who's XVho" has claimed three of our number this year: Miss Georgia Baker, Miss Margery Deale, and Miss Winnifred Young. The class is under the direction of Ray Stumbaugh, president, Miller McCluskey, vice-president, Herbert Trapp, secretary, Georgia Baker, treasurer, Doris Kaehr, historian, Nate Dodge, athletic manager. During our three years of college life, the Class of 1941 have written their names into the annals of the University where leadership, service, and scholarship are in evidence. We are proud of our past records, proud of the influence we have manifested, proud of our many contributions, proud to be numbered among the University family. Anxiously, yet sadly, do we anticipate our procession as Seniors in 1941, the final year of our glori- ous college career. Frrv! Rauf-J. Driscoll, Jacobs, j.

Sophomore Class History As the largest clafs in the history of the school, the freshman class of 1942 started on its four year tour with a feeling of unity and systematic workmanship that won them not only the yearly tug-of-war with the lordly Sophomores but also many other honors. The one hundred and eighty-five freshmen proceeded to break through the headlines of sports by placing six or seven very valuable men on the football squad besides adding several brilliant players to the basketball lineup. Tennis, track, and wrestling also found its place in the life of the newcomers. In the field of fine arts the freshmen com- prised nearly one-third of the A Cappella Choir besides occupying important places in the band and orchestra. - Under the able direction of Professor Eys- sen the new class made great strides in dra- matics, speech, and oratory. The Cue staff and Debate team were well supported by freshmen. The class was fortunate in having the capable leadership of Russell Morris, president, Francis Lupie, vice-presidentg Sargent Wright, secretary, Richard Norton, treasurerg and Betty Berwanger, class historian. In our return as Sophomores this year we put the over-confident freshmen in their places by again winning the tug-of-war. We fixed the green caps on their heads to stay until Thanksgiving. The same spirit of cooperation prevailed from the preceding year, and with the elec- tion of the class officers we started out im- mediately to smash all obstacles in our way. The class oflicers of the year were William Riedel, presidentg Ethelda Norberg, vice- president, Izetta Schmidt as secretary-treas- urer, and Jean Humke as historian. Then under the able leadership of our com- page forfj eight mittee heads we were able to win the Blue and White Club prize for decorating Sev- erance Hall during the Homecoming activ- ities. Another honor was brought to us by the election of lovely Dorothy Laskey, a class- mate, to reign as the Homecoming Football Queen. With the creation of the Student Council on the campus the Sophomore class gathered together and elected their two representatives, Ethelda Norberg and Homer Conzett. They have served us very well and have merited the confidence of their fellow classmates by successfully presenting and solving the prob- lems of the class. The class still holds its place in the musical activities of the college in the A Cappella Choir, Orchestra, and Band. One of the members of the class, Milton Mussehl, played a solo with the Band at its annual concert last winter. As Sophomores we have continued to give our support to the athletic teams. Near the beginning of the year, George Davis was appointed as athletic manager. In football, the class was able to add distinction to the team with the support of Broussard, Schiers, and McKenzie. The basketball team was well- rounded by the support of several valuable members, among whom were Riedel, Schiers, McKenzie, and Thoman. In tennis, track, and wrestling the Sophomores again showed their influence with the use of Casteel, Wild- er, Dieter, Riedel, Torgramsen, Hirsch, Davis, Thoman, and Conzett. At the same time, the class was also very active in the intra- mural program of the college. Besides those actively participating in sports the rest of the class showed decided interest in the form- ing and success of the new U-Clan. The increased development of Dramatics and Speech has been enhanced greatly with the talent offered by the members of our class. The plays presented in the little The- ater were supported both in acting and be- hind the scenes by the services of the Sopho- mores. Now as we look back at our two years spent in this institution of higher learning, we are again happy to relate the participation and success that our class of '42 has al- ready gained. Indeed, we look forward with eager eyes and active spirits for the future, for we wish to gain even more honors and have even bigger success in our Junior year.

Freshman Class History And so we have the class of 1943, an ama bitious and talented group of one hundred sixty students, who got off to a fine start at the Freshman Mixer, where the illustrious elders of our Alma Mater were presented to us "greenies." Although we lost the tug-of- war to a Sophomore team which seemed quite experienced in that sort of business, we wore our green caps with good humor and endured the occasional paddlings when we were caught without them. Football season was approaching, and sev- eral of our boys, namely Emil Lussow, Bob Sellergren, Bob Kueffler, Ivan Blackbourn, and Horst Rickert all heartily gave much worth- while support to the team. After having had a month to make ac- quaintances and to look over prospects, class oilicers were elected. Responsibilities were vested in Benjamin Fitzpatrick, president, Mary Mohrman, vice-president, Frederick Silkworth, treasurer, and Phyllis Pepoif, sec- retary and historian. With the reorganization of the Student Council, the Freshman class chose Jake Ohan- esian and Grace Herrmann to represent them, which they have done very well. A number of our fellow classmates, in- cluding Claire Schwanebeck and others have been given by-lines in the Cue, while many Freshmen have shown a great deal of musical ability. The A Cappella Choir, and the band and orchestra all include a goodly number of Freshman members. The Wo- Ifflsf iffy page fifty-our men's Quartette, in fact, is composed of two Freshmen, Myrna McMahon and Margery Meinert, accompanist. That we were well represented in other Helds of student activity, especially dra- matics, was shown by the organization of the Purple Masque, a Freshman dramatic club, while Myrna McMahon pleased everyone with her dramatization of Emily in Thornton Wilder's "Our Town," opposite another promising Freshman, Bob Sharp. Although we lost the tug-of-war, the Freshmen have shown no lack of athletic prowess since. Our representatives on the wrestling team, John Kanavas and Ralph Brooks, demonstrated more of the proficiency of the Class of '43. We also were prominent in basketball, with Emil Lusiow, high scorer of the Spartans, and Bob Sellergren again coming to the front to be showered with laurels. We really have something there! With the organization of the "U-Clan," three more Freshmen, Jeanette Harken, Peggy Skinner and Phyllis Pepoff came to the front as cheerleaders and added a little zip and zest to the school spirit, especially at the thrilling Luther basketball game. Bigger crowds attended the girls' basket- ball games this year due to the competition the Freshman girls offered to the upper class team. In all phases of school life, we, the class of 1943 have shown that we will strive to make the University proud of us. We look forward to bigger and better accomplish- ments.

The Theological Semina If The Seminary from its early beginning in 1852 to the present day has rendered an ever-increasing and helpful service to the churches of the Middle West. The major- ity of the students serve churches in nearby communities. Going out on Friday and working in the field over the week-end the men thus serve the churches with trained leadership. Through daily morning chapel services and devotional group meetings in the even- ing the spiritual life of the "Theologs" is nurtured and developed. Wednesday morn- ing services are under student direction and have proved most inspiring. The extra-curricular activities of the sem- inary were directed by a student council composed of: President, Milton Ahrensg vice- president, William Kettlitzg secretary-treasur- er, john Hodgson, fellowship committee chairman, Laurence Nelson, devotional com- mittee chairman, Ben Tallmang recreational committee chairman, Andres Andresen. A variety of activities occupied the time and attention of the student body. A group of singers organized as the Seminary Chorus met twice weekly for practice and for an enjoyable time. The Town Hall Meetings of the Air were of interest to the men. The recreational committee sponsored the gym program every Tuesday night. The Semin- ary was also represented in the inter-class basketball, volleyball, and horseshoe tourna- ments. Monthly dinner programs and fellowship speakers proved interesting and valuable in content. For our fellowship hours we had such speakers as: Dr. Dale D. Welch, Dr. William Barrow Pugh, Dr. Otto Piper, Dean C. Vin XVhite, Dr. Samuel Garvin, Dr. Arthur C. Carriel, Dr. Samuel S. George, Rev. Leon- ard Odiorne, Dr. Donald Leik, Prof. Paul Vail, Prof. Ben Esler, Walter Soboleff, and Laurence Nelson. Rich fellowship, deep spiritual insight, and varying degrees of knowledge have been the great privilege of all those who call them- selves "Seminarians." page fifty four bw fiffy-JW 2.

What memories those words bring! On September 7, 1939, the freshmen came to Dubuque. They came with their talents, their eagerness to begin their first year of college life-and their questions. But it was fun to answer ques- tions, to give directions, and to get ac- quainted with these grand freshmen. For two days they were subjected to place- ment tests, to lectures on the proper method of study in college, and to a ceaseless round of activity. The Freshman Mixer was held in the Commons on Friday night. Here it was that the new boys and girls, fand some who had been here beforej played games and danced-all for a good time and the chance Presiclenfs Reception The annual President's Reception was held in Peters Commons soon after the beginning of the school year. Here it was that Presi- dent and Mrs. Welch, with several other members of the faculty were formally in- troduced to che various members of the student body. The students were graciously welcomed by Miss Anna Aitchison, and then were intro- duced to those in the receiving line. Punch to meet some other freshman that had been admired from afar. On Saturday afternoon, the Y. M. C. A. and the Yf W. C. A. chartered buses and took the young folks to Eagle Point Park in order that they might see one of the loveliest spots in all Dubuqueland. Here the boys and girls explored the park, marvelled at the beauties of the "mighty Mississippi," and got better acquainted. At 5:30 they re- turned to the huge pavilion, where they feasted on hot dogs. Then came the home- ward trip, and what riots of song filled those buses on the way home. On Sunday morning, the freshmen were escorted to the churches of their choice by upper-class students. After the first week of real school had begun there came the tug-of-war. A huge group of students gathered on Kane Heights, many wearing the traditional green caps of the entering class. The rope was laid out, and the husky freshmen fellows lined up on one side, and a line of stalwart sopho- more lads faced them. Dr. Wilson gave the signal and the pull began. Inch by inch the sophomores were losing, until suddenly something happened. The weight swung in the other direction, the freshmen lost their footing, and over the line they went. The feared fate had descended-green caps were in evidence until Homecoming. and cookies were delightfully served from a beautifully arranged table. The evening was spent in "getting ac- quainted." Groups of girls and boys con- versing with faculty members made a strik- ing picture. The colorfulness of the even- ing gowns added much to the spirit of the occasion. Here it was that any and all, new and old, were welcomed again into the "Du- buque family." paqr' jifly eight lnterfraternity Dance For the second year in the history of our school, the four social fraternities on the campus of the University of Dubuque joined together to hold what is hoped will become an annual custom on the campus. The dance was enjoyed by seventy-Hve couples who danced to the music of Boyd Reter and his band. Upon entering the door of Peters Com- mons, the girls were each presented with identical corsages, and one by one, Univer- Homecoming lmgf' fiffry- niu An event on every college campus that bids to replace all other activ- ities for top honors during the year is Homecoming. This year the Uni- versity of Dubuque celebrated that event on the third, fourth and fifth of November. It was hailed as "Dubuque's greatest Homecoming celebration," and rightly so. The real merrymaking of Home- coming started Friday evening at seven o'clock, when the entire stu- dent body assembled on Kane Heights for the traditional bonfire, but ac- tivity was king for ceding week on the were the skirmishes ing of our and Loras J the entire pre- campus. There over the burn- piles of lumber, and of course much scurrying about decor- ating the buildings for the Blue and XVhite Club's annual prize. Following talks by many of our profes- sors, and after singing our songs, and yell- ing our cheers, most of the students and alumni retired to the Little Theater to see the play, "The Night of January Sixteenth." Professor Eyssen and his group of actors presented a rather unusual play, for the jury that tried the case was made up of men and women picked from the audience. One of the outstanding aspects of the play was A. sity men escorted their dates into a gaily festooned hall. The highlights of the dec- orations were found over the band stand, and in each of the four corners, for here were the banners and the emblems of the clubs sponsoring the ball. The orchestra led by and including former University men played both sweet and swing music. enabling the gathered crowd to have an enjoyable evening that ended with the playing of our Alma Mater. the fact that no one seemed to have the same reasons for giving the verdict "guilty" or "not guilty." Saturday, November 4, was a day that was made-to-order for football. The sky was clear, and the air had a bit of a chill to it that is always associated with football. The day started with the judges of the Blue and White Club deciding that the sophomores had done the best job on the campus in decor- ating Severance Hall, and consequently the coffers of the sophomore class were thereby enriched. It was a popular decision that reflected the happiness that was to prevail throughout the day. Following a hasty lunch, the student body en masse gathered downtown to be led through the streets of Dubuque by the Foot- ball Sweetheart, Dorothy Laskey, and her two attendants, Marian Junker and Esther Noeding. Dorothy, a small brunette from Chicago, was a popular Queen with the crowd, and cheer upon cheer arose from the sidewalks as she smiled from the back seat of a new convertible club cabriolet that had been graciously lent the D Club. Queen Dorothy was evidently good luck, for the fighting Spartans rolled over the Wartburg Knights to the tune of 27-0! The second period of the game found the Spar- tans doing the most damage, for three times our men crossed the goal line of the Knights. Although Captain Werkheiser was the most outstanding man on the field, several of our freshmen showed ability. Emil Lussow, an end, covered himself with glory by grabbing a lateral and romping seventy-five yards to a touchdown. No less brilliant were several other of the players. "Sweetpea" McDonald, playing in his last Homecoming game, was Sadie Hawkins' Day The entertainment committee of the Stef- fens Hall House Council, led by Tom Melton, borrowed an idea from Al Capp's comic strip, and "threw" a Party that enabled the Men's Lounge to be completely furnished. Sadie Hawkins was Queen for a day, as the women outstanding at center. Perhaps our new "Fight Song" by Nevin Lyerly helped us win. After the game, the students streamed up the hill to ring the Victory Bell, and finally to head into the banquet hall. The high- light of the dinner was the presentation of the awards to the different men on the team. Each year various merchants of the city give prizes to those on the team who made the first tackle, the longest run, the first touch- down, and so forth. It is through these pre- sentations that we learn many of the statistics of the game. Professor O. T. Walters, Ph.D., a member of the class of 1914, was the after-dinner speaker. He was formerly an instructor at the University. After a short rest, several hundred couples danced the later evening hours away in Pet- ers Commons at the dance annually sponsored by the D Club. The peak of the days of festivity was reached, when Dorothy and Cap- tain Gene Werkheiser led the crowd in the Grand March, at the end of which we all sang the Alma Mater to Ray Alderson's music. AND last, but not least, we must pay homage to the committee that had charge of the Homecoming Celebration. Professor Paul M. Vail was general chairman, and his sub- chairmen were: Mr. S. S. George, publicity and invitations, Dr. Laube, program, Mrs. Eyssen, dinner arrangements, Miss Florence Mulheim, dinner decorations and favors, Pro- fessor A. E. Van Eaton, building decorations, Dr. W. B. Zukcr, hospitality, Mr. Di Tella, music. Dean and Mrs. Wight represented the University Functions committee, and Dr. Kracher was a member ex-officio of com- mittees. of the campus asked the University men for dates, and then paid all the expenses. Admission rates were paid for at the rate of a cent for every inch around the girl's waist, but the tape was held fairly even at the same price. Corn cob pipes were given to each couple that attended. jmgr six! y It was in this atmosphere that the dance proceeded. Many and varied were the costumes, but they all faithfully adhered to the comic strip, and we had dozens of "L'il Abnersi' and "Daisy Macs" roaming Peters Commons for the night. Even "Hairless Joe" and "Lonesome Polecat" sampled new-fangled dancing for the evening. Because of excellent management by the boys, much publicity was secured for the dance. Pictures of our various characters graced the pages of our local paper, and even if we did have our party a week or so in advance of the real Sadie Hawkins, Day, the party went over with a bang that showed that our campus was not sleeping when it comes to novel ideas. Dads' Day Spi On the Sunday after the Thanksgiving recess we had our Dads on the campus with us. The day began with a worship service in the College Chapel, led by the Reverend C. Vin White, Dean of the Theological Seminary. At one o'clock a banquet was served in the Commons. After the meal, William Grings spoke for the students and Dr. W. j. Baumgartner, father of two present Du- buque students, gave a talk on the meaning of the occasion to the Dads. The afternoon was spent touring the cam- pus and visiting in the reception room of Severance Hall. E ritual Emphasis Week With "The Inevitability of Christ for the College Student," as the theme, our annual Spiritual Emphasis Week was led by Dr. George Irving of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He spoke to us every morning during chapel period and again in the evening for five days, and at a Sunday morning service. Dr. Irving endeared himself to the student body Dorm Night Before Christmas vacation the dormitory girls entertained about seventy-five town girls at a Christmas party in Severance Hall. The girls sang Christmas carols at the homes of faculty members near the Uni- versity and at Steffens Hall and then went back to a piping hot cup of cocoa and cakes. The girls were entertained with the story of "The Other Wise Manf' told by Muriel Putnam, followed by more carols. fmgv xixly-om' through the conviction of his speaking and the searching conversations with different members of the student body. The various social organizations on the campus aided Dr. John A. Garber in plan- ning and presenting the Worship services for the evening meetings. The girls then departed to their rooms- but not to sleep, for there were six girls in many of the rooms. Mattresses were carried from place to place to make beds on the floor for the extra girls. Everyone who attended the so-called "slumber party" had a glorious time and expressed their hope that the party be re- peated next Christmas. Christmas Banquet ancl Pageant The Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. to- gether planned and carried out the second annual all-school Christmas banquet and pageant. During the week before Christ- mas holidays this affair was held in Peters Commons. The tables were beautifully decorated with branches of evergreen and red candles. After the banquet was over, the ever-new story of Christ's nativity was retold in pag- eant form. Izetta Schmidt played the part YE. , it Music Festival In a year that has been packed with out- standing events, the Music Festival, present- ed by Dr. H. Augustine Smith, and follow- ing the theme of "Sacred Art, Music, and Pageantry," was a remarkable affair. The student body first met Dr. Smith in an assembly in the gymnasium, and was im- mediately impressed by his personality. He is a short man, but from head to foot he is packed with some dynamic force that com- pels one to be impressed. He at first set the students at ease by making a joke about of the Madonna, and Paul Ukena that of Joseph. Music--instrumental, choral and solo voice, added greatly to the beauty of the presentation. Credit is due Floyd Rundle and Ruth Bauman, who arranged and directed the music for the occasion. Mrs. Eyssen chose the pass- ages from the New Testament and wove them into the lovely story, which was narrated by Edward Dirks. Mr. Eyssen directed the action and setting for the scene. his own Bostonian accent, and then proceed- ed to make himself popular by leading the group in hymns that seemed to be the ones that we have always liked the most. Assem- bly periods of this type were continued for the week that he was on the campus. ln addition to the time he spent leading us in songs, and in giving lectures, he man- aged to produce, direct and present a Religious Festival at Westn1inster Presbyterian Church in downtown Dubuque. Not only did he do all of these things, but he displayed a "Mile of Pictures," including the works of modern artists as well as the old masters, and was on hand to explain them. Although the entire student body had little opportunity to see a great deal of Dr. Smith, he held daily conferences with those interested in music. These conferences in- cluded hymn interpretation, choral directing and art in religion. An organ roundtable was held daily, followed by a brief organ recital. On Tuesday evening, a choral festival by the massed choirs of the Protestant churches of Dubuque and the surrounding territory presented works of Bach, Brahms, Handel, and Mendelssohn. On Thursday evening, a colorful pageant depicted man's search for God through different religions, culminating in His revealment through Christ. Much of the credit for the success of the Music Festival must be given to Noel Logan, director of the A Cappella Choir, and executive head of the Music Department. pagr Mfg luo Convocation of the Rector For many years it has been the custom for colleges in Scotland and Germany to elect a famous man as honorary rector for the school year, but never, in our knowledge, had it been done in this country until the University of Dubuque installed Dr. Thomas Mann, the famous German novel- ist, as Honorary Rector on the even- ing of February 9, 1940. When the students of the Uni- versity of Dubuque heard that the school was to have a Rector, there was a concerted rush on dictionaries, which, how- ever, yielded only an ambiguous definition. To inform us students of the meaning of the word, special chapel services were held the week previous to the coming of Dr. Mann, and Dr. S. S. George, Dr. W. C. Laube, Dr. I-1. S. Ficke, and Romo Russo told us of the significance and the place of a rector in a school. The University of Dubuque was very for- tunate to secure such a famous man as Dr. Mann. It was through the perseverance of Dr. Welch that he came. We were told that the history of the Universityiappealed to Dr. Mann, for he was born and reared in Lubeck, and many of the Germans who inhabit this section of the Middle West, and who have contributed students and money to our school are from the section of Ger- many that is called East Frisia, which bor- ders on Lubeck. At noon on Feb. 9, 1940, the Student Council, and a committee composed of Dr. D. D. Welch, Dr. W. B. Zuker, Dr. S. S. George, Dr. W. C. Laube, and Dr. F. W. Kracher met the Burlington Zephyr and whisked Dr. Mann and his wife to the Laube home on Algona Street where they made their home during their stay in Dubuque. They were there only a few hours when they were escorted to a reception for members of the student body in Severance parlor. Romo Russo introduced the guests to the Mann's during the period of the reception. Follow- ing this get-together, the board of directors of the University met to discuss the plans for the convocation, and the conferring of degrees upon four leading ministers, Rev. Brainerd N. Covert, Freeport, Illinois, Rev. Pasquale R. DeCarlo, Chicago, Illinois: Rev. page rnl3 tl ree Lefferts A. Loetscher, Philadelphia, Pennsyl- vania, and Rev. Amos J. Niebruegge, La Crosse, Wisconsin. At six o'clock the Mann family were guests of honor at a banqueta in Peters Commons. The hall was beautifully decorated with ferns and signs proclaiming to all that we were happy to have the Manns with us. The key- note of the decorations was the portrait of Dr. Mann that Remo Russo painted from a newspaper clipping of our famous guest. At eight o'clock the convocation pro- gram started. Romo Russo, president of the student council, bore the Mace, a cane which had belonged to Rev. Adrian Van Vliet, founder of the University. He was followed by Dr. Mann who was escorted by Dr. Welch and Edwin B. Lindsay, president of the Board of Trustees. Representative members of the Board of Trustees were followed by the gowned faculty and senior class of the col- lege of Liberal Arts and of the Seminary. Following two organ numbers by Miss Martha Zehetner, Mr. Russo read the pledge of loyalty, after which Dr. Kracher gave the invocation. Induction of the Honorary Rec- tor was performed by Pres. Welch, and Recog- nition by Mr. Lindsay. Dr. Mann's address, was next on the pro- gram. As was expected, the speech was taken from Dr. Mann's latest book, "The Coming Victory of Democracy." It was with long and thunderous applause that the standing, over-whelmed crowd of 1200 per- sons thanked Dr. Mann for his address. It was a heart-stirring, thrilling few minutes that we stood there watching the stern- looking man who had proved himself such a fine orator. Dr. Mann was not given much time to recuperate from his speech making tasks, for the following morning the Laube family gave a breakfast to which many of our faculty members were invited. In the afternoon, another reception was held in Severance par- lors, at which time Dr. Mann was introduced to the faculty, to many of the town's people, especially those who teach the social sci- ences, history and literature, and to the Protestant ministers of Dubuque who have aided so much in bringing the University of Dubuque to its present position. It may truthfully be said that we kept Dr. Mann busy, but when we are fortunate Flunkers' Fling The newly-elected Student Council, show- ing their pep, presented a dance immediately after mid-semester examinations, and aptly labeled it the "Flunkers' Fling." Decorations consisted of gaily-colored streamers which were meant to dispel all troubles. Some of us were not so easily comforted by them, but at least they were pleasant to the eye. Small intimate tables, with bright check- Washington Dinner Da Again this year the Faculty and Facultette sponsored the Washington Dinner Dance. Din- ner was served at six o'clock on long tables decorated with the traditional red, white, and blue, and little hatchets. Following the dinner, most of the formally- attired couples sojourned to the gymnasium, Penny Carnival Another party that seems well on its way to becoming an annual custom on our campus is the Penny Carnival that the boys of Stef- fens Hall gave for the second consecutive year. This year in addition to games of skill, museums, side shows, and food, a full length movie was shown. All attractions were priced at one penny, except the movie, which cost all who viewed it the immense sum of five cents. After every one had participated in enough to have such a famous personage to speak with, and we are not apt to have such an opportunity again, it seems justifiable. We can all say that we enjoyed having Dr. Mann on our campus, and it goes without saying that we hope to have him return. We are grateful for what he brought us, a glimpse of something hitherto unseen . . . the vision of a famous novelist put into actual ex- perience. We are happy that we could en- tertain him, and that he could start a cus- tom by being the University of Dubuque's first Honorary Rector! ered cloths and gay menu cards were placed in.two corners, making it pleasant to sit and sip refreshments, although a new campus band, led by Red McCluskey, was exceed- ingly good. The students all left in a much more cheerful frame of mind than when they ar- rived, agreeing that if the Council kept up the spirit the dance reflected, they would be a leading campus organization. DCS where a high school wrestling tournament was in progress. From nine until twelve, Red McCluskey's orchestra played for the assembled dancers, who gathered during the evening to thank the faculty members present for giving an- other most delightful party. all of the varied attractions, dancing was enjoyed by many couples. The public ad- dress system brought the most highly priced dance bands in the country to our own ro- tunda, and it was the variety and choice of pieces that made the crowd agree that the Penny Carnival, and the following dance, must become a custom that all entering fresh- men should enjoy. pug: snfg our A Night in Vienna The Student Council, after proving their worth at one dance, again "came through" by giving a dance entitled NICHT EN WEIN. This time we did not have examinations to bother us, and the crowd as a whole, was a happier one. In keeping with the mood established by the name attached to the pro- gram, the tables for refreshments were cov- ered with red and white checked table cloths, lanterns hung from the beams, and we had an hour of dancing to waltz music. We International Banquet On April 12, 1939, the members of the Y. W. C. A. held the first International Banquet with the theme, "Interest in Other Lands." Fukuko Sasaki, from Japan, Doris Selvy, from New York, Oldriska jarkovska, from Czechoslovakia, Walter Soboleif, from Alaska, David Gelzer, from Switzerland, Napoleon Sanchez, from New Mexico, and Maria Var- gas, from Puerto Rico told about Y. M. or Y. W. work in their various countries, or Intersorority Dance About one hundred sorority girls enter- tained their chosen escorts in April, 1939, at a formal dance and reception with a novel setting in "New Netherlands." In the cen- ter of Peters Commons was a Dutch wind- mill, surrounded by a bed of colorful tulips. On the walls were silhouettes of Holland scenes, and Dutch kites hung from the rafters. The receiving line consisted of the presi- dent and an honorary from each sorority, and representatives of each organization served punch and cookies during the dance. 11 Al .vxly xr had been promised an exhibition of waltzing by Milos Hlvacek and Dr. Hans Kirchberger and their partners, but because of illness, Dr. Kirchberger was unable to demonstrate. Therefore Milos and Winifred Young showed us how Viennese Waltzes should be danced, and then for an hour we tried to emulate their ease, with not a great deal of success. Again Red McCluskey's orchestra furnished us with modern swing music, and again the gathered group agreed that they had a suc- cessful evening. among the members of their particular na- tionalities. Miss Katherine Knight, secretary of the Dubuque Y. W. C. A. spoke on "The Search for Peace." Muriel Putnam, accompanied by Anne Arends, led group singing of songs of other lands. Mrs. Asthore Lillie was toastmistress. It is through such meetings as this that we discover in each other the interests that are common to us all. -At intermission each sorority presented a bit of entertainment, directed by Mrs. Asthore Lillie as mistress of ceremonies. In keeping with the Dutch theme, the Zeta Phi trio opened with a Dutch song. The Gamma Phi Delta girls presented "Pictures in Song," living portraits with a background of music. Delta Sigma's representative entertained with a reading, "The Waltz." The program was cdncluded with the Lambda Tau Delta num- ber, "In a Little Dutch Mill," the girls cos- tumed to fit the song. The May Breakfast Faculty and students welcomed the month of May a bit prematurely on April 28, 1939, at the annual May Breakfast. A campus tra- dition, the May Breakfast is one of the high- lights of the spring season. The Commons was transformed to fit the spirit of the occa- sion, with each class decorating its own group of cables. With Homer Ogle as master of ceremonies, the program was presented. The Freshman contribution was a group of songs by Izetta Schmidt and Gerald Smith, while the Sopho- mores presented a mock style show with Hilda Balster as narrator. Some ridiculous outfits were presented by Sophomore girls-for in- stance, one girl wore a flower pot hat, and another a "Spring" bonnet, which actually consisted of a bed spring. The juniors presented Emmett Goetschius as a wild violinist, who could only play one phrase, and Francis Eberhart as the "Um- brella iMan." The Seniors held a mock gradu- ation ceremony, in which the members of the class were called to the platform to re- ceive diplomas disclosing some of their charac- teristics or secrets. The highlight of the affair was the intro- duction of the three new school songs chosen in the Cue's "Eulogize Your U" student song contest. Russell Kiesele, associate editor of the Cue presented awards to Oliver Brandt, Nevin Lyerly, William Schoentgen and Rev. Al Wendelburg, winners in the various con- test divisions. The University Quartet, com- posed of Donald Boyd, Warren Rundle, Floyd Rundle, and Gerald Smith presented the songs, followed by community singing by the entire group. Mrs. Ferdinand Di Tella, who wrote the music for the two song entries in the "words" group, accompanied the singing. The May Fefe The May Fete-one of the loveliest of Dubuque's traditions-was presented on Sat- urday evening, May 6, 1939, in McCormick Gymnasium. The gym was transformed into a medieval garden, and at one end was a huge pillared dais, upon which the Queen of May was crowned. The solemn procession of lovely ladies and handsome men was announced by Trewin Huntoon, the Town Crier. Each person was heralded by a flourish from the trumpets of Larry Palmer and Sargent Wright. First came the royal attendants, chosen from the Senior Class: Fern Lewis, Eleanor Rodden, Mildred Board, Helen Austin, Vernon Wolt- hoff, Andres Andresen, William Watters, and Homer Ogle. Robert Deale and Milton Con- zett were pages. Donna Eyssen and Eleanor Brooks strewed flowers in the Queen's path as she approached, while Edward Logan and Paula Fitzke carried Her Majesty's train. Pre- ceding the Queen were the two Maids-of- Honor, Ethel Swartwood of Dubuque, a page sixly-six l i senior, and Margaret Miller of Davenport, a junior. Then came the breathless moment as the Queen approached the throne. Jane Nowlin, lovely in every sense of the word, in her sheer white gown, edged in black lace, and her train of filmy net sprinkled with silver stars approached the dais for the Coronation ceremony. Representatives of the various classes came with their offerings: Edith Stuart of Dubuque, a freshman brought a bouquet of spring flowers, Georgia Baker, a sopho- more, a satin pillow. Kay Dewey, of Du- buque, presented the scepter from the junior classg and Evelyn Johns, of Stockton, Illinois, brought the crown of fresh flowers from the senior class. The crown was placed upon the Queen's head by Miss Margaret Bayly, May Queen of 1937, and the colorful cere- mony was ended. A prologue, written by Bill Schoentgen, and read by Donald Boyd introduced the en- XIY-5l'l1'l tertainment presented for the approval of the Queen and her court. The play, "The Ro- mancers," by Rostand, was presented in Shakespearean costume and style, directed by Professor Donald C. Eyssen. The cast of the Elizabethan comedy in- cluded Dorothy Laskey, Harold Nagel, Har- old Stewart, Walter Fosha, Denes Balo, and Theodore Svensson. The orchestra, under the direction of Floyd Rundle, furnished the musical background for the production. After the ceremony and play, the audience thronged to the dais, where they greeted the Queen and her company. The evening was completed with a dance in Peters Commons. To the Y.W.C.A. president, Marian Swalve, her committees and workers, and the Y.W. advisers, who helped make this May Fete such a high spot in the year's program, the Y.W.C.A. and the school are indebted. I 0 Mothers Day Tea The members of the Y. W. C. A. enter- tained their mothers at their annual Mothers' Day Tea held in Severance Parlors on the first Sunday afternoon in May, 1939. Frances Bajema, newly elected president, and Marian Swalve, present president, poured for the guests at a beautifully appointed table. The salon orchestra furnished music dur- ing the entire afternoon. A special program was presented, which included two clever readings by Dorothy Laskey, several vocal selections by Izetta Schmidt, and a group of songs by the male quartet. Commencement Week Commencement Week has been called the busiest week of the year. The activities opened on june 3, and continued for the five days following, closing on June 7, 1939. On Saturday evening, June 3, Dr. and Mrs. Dale D. Welch were hosts to the sen- iors and faculty at a reception in Severance Parlors. Sunday was open house, and many friends and alumni came to visit the school. Sunday afternoon the University band was presented in concert on the lawn. Baccalaureate ser- vices were held at the Westminster Presby- terian Church on Sunday evening. The ser- mon was delivered by Dr. Welch, and choral .Iunlor Prom "1t's May-and Prom time again!" Thus ran the opening lines of the account of the Junior Prom in the Cue. It was the third annual prom at the University, and was truly an enchanting spring formal. The senior class were guests of the class of 1940. Maurie Sherman and his College Inn Or- chestra, of nationwide fame, played for danc- ing. From a group of five girls selected from the junior class, Margaret Miller of Davenport was elected Queen of the Prom by the dancers. music was presented by the Westminster Choir. Here it was that the seniors realized the solemnity of this, their last week on the campus of the University. Dr. Garber inaugurated a new feature early on the morning of Wednesday, June 7. A chapel service honored those graduating who had served the Y. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., Student Volunteers, or Gospel Team. On the night of June S in the college chapel five upperclassmen participated in the annual Alumni Oratorical Contest. Places were awarded to Harold Nagel, Orrin Moore, and Dorothy Banks. During the week, the Board of Directors held their meetings to discuss business of the year, to elect officers, and to make plans for the forthcoming year. The traditional Class Day exercises were held in McCormick gymnasium on Tuesday, june 6. The seniors presented a sundial for the campus as their parting gift to the school. After the program the home economics tea was given under the direction of Miss Blanche Bock, head of the department. The week closed with the Convocation Exercises at St. Luke's Methodist Church on Wednesday morning, June 7, at 10 o'clock. The academic procession formed at Westmin- ster Presbyterian Church and marched down Main Street to St. Luke's for the ceremonies. Dr. john Maclvor, pastor of the Second Pres- byterian Church of St. Louis, Missouri, spoke to the assembled body on "The Battle for Personality." After the ceremonies a ban- quet was held at Peters Commons, at which the parents of the seniors were guests of the University. page slxfx rlqbl . 4 Study in Shadows Miss Ania Dorfmrmn Salute!

The Student C'vunc7 Under the new Student Government Con- stitution, the new Student Council of the College of Liberal Arts of the University of Dubuque this year assumed an active repre- sentation of the student body and an effec- tive administration of their problems. The new constitution, which replaced the invalid one formerly set up, was drafted by the class in American Government. After due amendment and ratification by the student body and the faculty, the articles as set up became effective in the creation and operation of the council. For the hrst year under the new self- government plan, the students elected eight from their number as representatives. These were: Marjorie Lewis and Francis Eberhart, seniors, Ruth Bauman and William Proudfoot, juniors, Ethelda Norberg and Homer Con- zett, sophomores, and Grace Herrmann and jacob Ohanesian, freshmen. The president of the student body, this year elected by the council, was Romo Russo, senior. Other officers elected by the Student Council were Ruth Bauman, vice-president, Ethelda Nor- berg, secretary, and Homer Conzett, treasurer. Throughout the year, the Student Council has served as a representative student body in the activities of the university as a whole and has sponsored social events for the stu- dents. XVorking in direct cooperation with the University Functions Committee the Stu- dent Council assumed complete charge of two receptions in honor of Dr. Thomas Mann, Honorary Rector, and Mrs. Mann. Members took active part in the convocation cere- mony. The selection of next year's rector has been accomplished through the combined efforts of the faculty and the Student Council representing the expressed wish of the stu- dents. Two dances given, "Flunkers' Fling" and "Fastnacht in Wien" CA Night in Viennaj were some of the most successful of the year. The council also sponsored a Conference on Marriage presenting to the student body three speakers treating the subject from the economic, biological, and social aspects. The planning of the Wednesday Student Assembly periods was for the purpose of furthering stu- dent talent. In addition the Student Coun- cil has assumed the settling of all discipline problems which affect the welfare of the stu- dent body. In order to better understand and execute their duties, the members have corresponded with student governments ac- tive in other colleges. A Student Handbook has been one of the final undertakings of this year and will be available to students next fall. Img: nnuli to Silfing-Stalions, Franxenburg, Hacker, Baker, Dcale, W'hite.

The Steffens Hall Dormitory Association exists for the purpose of maintaining high standards of conduct and fostering fellow- ship and responsibility among the residents of the Men's Dormitory. Seven students from different sections are elected each year to form the executive council of this group and carry out the objectives of its consti- tution. During this year the council was composed of Guerney Alzeno, presidentg Francis Eber- hart, vice-presidentg Harold Nagel, secretary- treasurerg Erwin Schwartz, Robert Besch, john Broussard, and Michael Varkonda. Mr. William Schulz was adviser and head of the hall. Among the many activities of this group for the improvement of dormitory condi- tions was the establishment of a lounge on the fourth floor. Considerable furniture was purchased and the rotunda closed to make a spacious room for recreational reading and social activities. The House Council also sponsored numer- ous social events most prominent of which was their annual Penny Carnival. This year's carnival was held for the purpose of raising money for the installation of a buzzer sys- it I 1 llirrr Hou e C'oanc1lA tem in connection with the telephone. These events were planned in cooperation with the dormitory social committee composed of Thomas Melton, chairman, Robert Collier. and Napoleon Sanchez. The Severance House Council is a self governing body of the women's dormitory. The members are chosen by the residents to represent the group in student-faculty rela- tions, to foster a feeling of good fellowship and cooperation among its members, and to maintain a high standard of college life, which shall conform to the ideals and traditions of the University of Dubuque. The council started its ofhcial work by orientating the Freshmen to campus and dormitory life during Freshman Week. Reg- ular meetings of the house are held each month. Parties such as a Halloween frolic, Christmas caroling, a slumber party for all the town girls, teas on Sunday afternoon, and other social functions are conducted by the council. The officers for the year 1939-40 were: Velda Hacker, president, Billie Franzenburg, vice-presidentg Georgia Baker, secretary, Margery Deale, treasurerg Blanche Stalions, and Catherine White. lux!

Student llolun team The Student Volunteers stand for the fol- lowing objectives: to disseminate missionary intelligenceg to sustain a feeling of oneness of purpose with the missionaries in serviceg to lead the members into a fuller apprecia- tion of the present missionary program of the churchg to share in intercessory prayer for the world work of missionaries and the peo- ple whom they serveg to challenge the stu- dents with the needs of the missionary fields of today, to engage in missionary activity as the opportunity presents itself. Members of the Student Volunteers are university students of two classifications: active members, those who are definitely planning to give themselves to full-time mis- sionary serviceg and associate members who have not fully committed themselves to mis- sionary services, but have a genuine interest in the missionary work of the church. The regular meetings are held twice each month. They take the form of a business meeting, a song service, or a special program about a particular country. Special meetings are called whenever missionaries are available. The speakers this year were: Marion Swalve, university student missionary to the Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakotag Rev. Glen Morrow, whose message was "Customs and Costumes of Siam," Rev. Pinkerton, mis- sionary to Indiag Rev. George Irving, for- mer Y.M.C.A. secretary and at present a mem- ber of the Board of Christian Educationg Dr. Mackay, president of Princeton Theological Seminary who spoke on his experiences in Brazilg Arlo Shelton, minister to the moun- tainers of Kentucky, Miss Alice Cary, mis- sionary to japang and Walter Soboleff, semi- nary student from Alaska. This yezir most of the members attended the State Student Volunteer Convention held at Coe College. The officers for the year were: George Tjaden, presidentg Georgia Baker, vice-presi- dentg and John Middents, secretary-treasurer. Dr. John A.

The team consists of students who are inter- ested and willing to participate in Christian service. Objectives of the group are endeavoring to help others find Christ by bringing cheer- ful and inspiring messages to them, develop- ing in others and in themselves a deeper de- votion for Him and His service, and pro- moting fellowship in the true spirit of Chris- tian living. Members of the Gospel Team include, among others, students from Japan, Korea, Puerto Rico, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Swit- zerland and the Sioux Indian reservation in South Dakota. ll qr unufa fu' 'flue gmpel Te m This year this organization has been work- ing under the direction of Dr. john A. Gar- ber, adviser, Grace Porter, representative of the Y. W. C. A., Richard Hampton and Richard Norton, representatives of the Y. M. C. A. These leaders with their student groups have conducted various programs and ser- vices in Dubuque and in surrounding churches within a radius of one hundred miles. Reg- ular Dubuque assignments consist of a service the first Sunday of each month at Sunny Crest Sanatorium, and a service every Tues- day evening in the City Mission. These pro- grams, together with other types of service, make the Gospel Team a very worthwhile and active organization of the University. Included in Y. XV. C. A. goals for the year 1939-40 were to promote closer co- operation with the city Y. W. C. A. and the campus Y. M. C. A., to provide a center for friendships regardless of cliques, classes, or races, to present information on domestic and international problems, and to foster richer individual religious growth. The girls who were chosen to guide the Y. W. C. A. for this year were president, Georgia Baker, vice-president, Clarice Strand, secretary, Aldeen Zukerg treasurer, Velda Hacker. Special duties were performed by the other cabinet members: devotional, Mar- ian Swalve, membership, Louise Eisenschmidtg service, Ethelcla Norbergg social, Mary Etta Wilson and Marion Junkerg music, Doris Kaehrg publicity Leah Conzett, Marguerite Walsh, and Dorothy Laskeyg Gospel Team, Grace Porter, and scrapbook, Oldriska Jar- kovska. The faculty advisers were Miss Ait- chison, Mrs. George, and Mrs. Zuker. During Freshman Week, the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. gave a picnic at Eagle Point Park for the entering students. In the fall the two organizations sponsored roller skating parties and a marshmallow roast at Kane Heights. At Christmas time they pre- sented the second annual all-school Christmas banquet in Peters Commons, in conjunction with a Pageant of the Nativity. Some of the outstanding programs of the year were the Candlelight Recognition Ser- vice, at which about one hundred-twenty girls were initiated, talks on the purpose of the Y. W. C. A. by Miss Eleanor Myers, secretary of the Junior Girl Reservesg on hob- bies by Miss Helen Walker, another member of the local Y. W. staff, and on personality by Mrs. Goldsmith, instructor in home econ- omics. The Y. W. assisted in making and carrying out the plans for Religious Emphasis Week in December. The May Fete and the World Fellowship Banquet were the outstanding so- cial events of the second semester. Service projects included a redecoration of the Girls' Lounge, collection for Mt. Pleasant Home, and Thanksgiving baskets for needy families of the city. 11.131 uzmly IX Boflom Ron'-Hanna, juarbe, Silkworth, NX"illemssen, Lewis. Jaspers, Tr3PP- Host, Wfilliams.

A. has endeavored to con- tribute something vital and definite to both the social and religious life of the campus. The Y. M. C. A. seeks to enlarge the vision of young men, thus making them more ef- ficient for service and leadership in the church and community. The membership of the Y. M. C. A. the past year was the largest in the life of the organization, and its program was varied and constructive. During the membership drive. prospective members were given a marshmal- low roast at "Brown's Bottom." To start its year, the Y. M. C. A. joined with the Y. XV. C. A. in sponsoring a roller skating party for the members. A marshmallow roast was also held in conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. during the fall on Kane Heights. Dur- ing the year the Y. M. C. A. presented several informal lectures by University proe fessors. Dr. Goldsmith spoke on "Fish Stor- ies," and Professor Kuhn told about his trip to Europe during the summer. The Y. M. C. A. encourages its members to think about the vital issues of the day, and in line with this it sponsored a round table discussion on 1 i un :li srrrr: Tf . C . neutrality by Professors Fox, Vail, and Van Eaton. As a service organization, the Y. M. C. A. took charge of chapel ushers, a second-hand book exchange, and the distribution of Thanksgiving baskets to the poor. In order to promote the social life of the campus, the Y. M. C. A. sponsored a performance, "Magical Moments," with a local magician in charge. At the conclusion of the Free- dom From Debt Drive, the Y. M. C. A. organized an informal banquet to celebrate the occasion and to honor President Dale D. NVclch. The officers of the past year were: Guerney Alzeno, president, Walter Fosha, vice-presi- dent, Arthur Host, secretary-treasurer.

The active season began in October with a large group of interested students report- ing to Professor Eyssen, the debate coach. After several weeks of library research and a few intrasquad debates, the annual Round Robin Tournament was held here to inaug- urate the intercollegiate competition. Four neighboring colleges accepted our invitation to participate in the three rounds of debate. The squad also made several short trips to neighboring colleges and participated in a triangular meet at Wartburg College at Waw'erly, Iowa. Numerous squad meetings were held for the revision and improvement of cases and presentation for the tournaments to follow. In the first part of March, the University was represented at the ninth annual North- west Debate Tournament at St. Thomas Col- lege in St. Paul, Minnesota, by two teams composed of Wendell Kepner, William Con- nor, Robert Collier, and Harold Nagel. This was one of the largest forensic meets in the nation and a real experience for the represent- atives of the fifty or more colleges and uni- versities that participated. The University was also represented at the Iowa State Tournament held at Cedar Rapids during the latter part of March. Orrin Moore, winner of the Alumni Oratorical Contest, spoke in the oratory division using his origination oration, "The Lion of Idaho." William Connor and Harold Nagel entered the five rounds of debating. The officers of the Iowa Lambda chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary foren- sic fraternity, on this campus for the past season were: Harold Nagel, president, Robert Collier, vice-presidentg Dorothy Banks, secre- tary-treasurerg and Robert Allen, reporter. The other active members were Marguerite Walsh, Melvin McGovern, and Albert Scheele. Students now eligible for membership include Wendell Kepner, Orrin Moore, and William Connor. Graduate members on our campus are Andres Andresen, Thomas Megahey, and Newell Brink. page vt 1 mfg ugh! Front Rane-Kregel, Anderson, Harwood, May, Schwanebeck, Taylor, Cordes, Sherockman. Bark Rout-Blondin, Stickfort, Silkworth, Kepner, Sharp, Smith, Mohrman, W'ise, Martindale The Purple Masque, a Freshman dramatic club, was newly organized in September, un- der the sponsorship of Alpha Psi Omega, na- tional dramatic fraternity. The purpose of this new club is to foster an interest in dramatics among freshmen, to give them a foundation for future stage work, and to prepare them for membership in Alpha Psi Omega. At the beginning of the year there were twenty Freshmen who organized the Purple Masque. About ten new members were ac- cepted later on. The officers who were elected in the fall and re-elected in the spring were Mary Eliza- fmgr tm r uh nim' The Pu ple Ilia que beth Mohrman, presidentg Howard Mellang, vice-presidentg De Lite May, secretary, and Robert Sharp, treasurer. The club's activities were under the super- vision of Professor Donald E. Eyssen, dramatic coach. The Purple Masque entertained the Alpha Psi Omega at a Christmas party, held a Weiner roast at Grandview Park, presented a one-act play. Several of its members were successfully cast in roles in the all-school plays. .Members of the club also made a new front curtain for the Little Theater, sewed on costumes, worked on stage crews, and ushered for the major productions.

The first meeting of the group was held late in November. At this time the U-Clan officers were elected and a contest organized to select the name for the group. Membership was limited to thirty-five students who had been on the campus at least nine weeks and exhibited active interest in all student affairs and showed willingness to support them loyally. The first year has been very successful. Three peppy, uniformed cheerleaders have led the U-Clan and student body in the school songs and yells at all important university athletic events.

To become a member, one must have earned a major "D" either in football, basket- ball, track, or tennis, and have attained a sophomore standing scholastically. The D Club plays an important role in the welfare of the school. It annually spon- sors the Homecoming Dance, one of the biggest events of the year. In addition to presenting the students and Blue and White Club members with football and basketball schedules this year, the D Club inaugurated the practice of selling football programs at all home games. The D Club continued to sponsor its athletic carnival for the benefit of the National Infantile Paralysis Fund. Also the D Club members ushered at all athletic events, including the High School District Wrestling Meet held in McCormick Gym- nasium. At the end of each sport season, the D Club sponsored its annual athletic banquet fn,q1'i'1g!:t-3'-ozlr C7116 in honor of its participants. It is at this time that the D Club awards were presented to the deserving athletes. All Senior foot- ball men were given small gold footballsg and the captains of the major sports were presented with special "D" blankets. The three important D Club trophies were pre- sented to the athletes who were outstanding in their fields. The 1938-39 winners were: Don Emery, as the outstanding senior ath- lete: Bill Watters, as the athlete with the best scholastic recordg and Francis Lupie, who was awarded the Freshman trophy as the out- standing Freshman athlete. The D Club also planned to continue the Iowa Conference Decathlon Meet, which was inaugurated in 1939 by Don Emery, former D Club president. In the spring the D Club also promoted the annual all-school dance which was ruled by the Sports Queen of the University of Dubuque. The Queen was chosen by all lettermen on the campus. The otlicers for the year were: Robert Besch, president, Melvin McDonald, vice- presidentg and Robert Schiers, secretary- treasurer. Top Row-Triller, Balster, Baumgartner, Chesney, Condit, Miller.

The event was the annual outdoor breakfast and initiation. The newly-elected oflicers for the year were installed in formal ceremony by retir- ing president, Jane Nowlin. The new offi- cers were Fletcher Condit, presidentg Hilda Balster, vice-president, Margery Deale, sec- retary-treasurerg and Margaret Miller, his- torian. The new oiiicers then inducted into full membership seven neophytes, who through their work in dramatics had earned distinc- tion. Those received were Fred Abben, Wal- ter Fosha, Trewin Huntoon, Dorothy Laskey, Harold Stewart, Robert Stoneburner, and Herbert Trapp. When the group returned to the campus in September, 1939, seventeen active members reported to the organization. A committee was created immediately to look into the ad- visability of helping the Freshmen interested in dramatics to form a club of their own. Early in October a large group of interested Freshmen were entertained at a Drama Party in the Little Theater. When the festivities were over, the group organized "The Purple Masque," the first Freshman Dramatic So- ciety ever formed on the campus. Under the able leadership of cast director Professor Donald Eyssen four major pro- ductions were presented during the year. Members of the Delta Zeta Cast were prom- inent in every production. Jane Nowlin, Walter Fosha, and Harold Nagel played the major roles in "The Night of January Six- teenth" presented at Homecoming. Support- ing roles were carried by Ted Svensson, Mar- garet Miller, Harold Stewart, and Helen Baumgartner. The next production was "Our Town." In the Russian comedy "Squaring the Circle" Alpha Psi Omega was represented by Dorothy Laskey and Margaret Miller. In the spring, the Shakespearean play "The Taming of the Shrewv was presented at the May Fete. Because of the steady increase in oppor- tunity for students to take part in dramatics, the requirements for membership were raised this year. Membership in the fraternity be- comes more and more a real distinction. page ugbly tuo Another year of achievement and success has been completed by the University of Dubuque A Cappella Choir. Dr. Noel j. Logan has created through his Hne direction an eight-part choir singing without accom- paniment, yet losing nothing of the unity and blend of voices essential to produce choral technique. The choir has long hlled its audiences and its members with joy and inspiration. The choir sings sacred music of the choral masters from the sixteenth century to the present time. Included in its repertoire are works of Praetorius, Palestrina, Bach, Men- delssohn, and modern Russian and American composers. Inspired with spiritual insight and imbued with musical excellence, the group renders a veritable f'Sermon in Song." Special recognition was given this year to Kathryn Dewey, Jane Ann Triller, Annette :gr l'iKllf-Y-fl7l'l't' 14 Cappella Clwu' Jessen, Floyd Rundle, Francis Eberhart, Lloyd Fonken, and Edward Dirks for their loyal membership throughout the four years of their college life. These members, all gradu- ating, have given their service to the organ- ization, and are leaving enviable places to be filled by underclassmen. The annual spring tour was made from February 29 to March 12, 1940. The two- week trip was made by the sixty members with their director, Dr. Logan, and the tour manager, Tabe J. Loats. Sacred concerts were presented in twenty churches, one col- lege, and several high schools in Illinois, Min- nesota, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Iowa. A C. B. S. coast-to-coast broadcast was made possible through station KMOX, St. Louis. The highlight of the choir year was the presentation of the home concert on March 12, 1940. land and Urclae tra To Ferdinand Di Tella, director of the Uni- versity Concert Band, goes the credit for the maintenance of its position in the musical annals of the school. In the comparatively few years of its existence, the band has been completely instrumentized, uniformed, and has been recognized as one of the best of small college bands in the Middle West. Under the direction of the two majorettes Dorothy and Ruth Cords, the band presented a series of maneuvers between the halves of the Homecoming game. Music was pro- vided for all basketball and football games, pep meetings, and extra curricular activities. One small group, the corner trio, organized from the band personnel presented appearances in radio, college and civic affairs. The trio is composed of Milton Mus:ehl, Larry Palmer and Sargent Wright. On January 18 the ninth annual concert was given in Peters Commons. A program of familiar numbers, ranging from stan- dard overtures to well known marches and modern novelties, was well presented and equally well received. During this year the instrumental depart- ment has maintained an enviable reputation throughout Dubuqueland. As in former years three orchestras were used in the work of the instrumental department, the sym- phony of 70 members, the concert orchestra of 25, the salon group of 15. In the ninth annual concert of April 2, the orchestra featured the ever popular and stirring Symphony No. Four in F Minor by Tschaikowsky. Also featured was the Four Piano Concerto in C Minor by John Sebastian Bach. The presentation of the concerto in which Forest Conway, Grace Herrmann, Genevieve Gross, and Hugh Lyerly were so- loists was respectfully dedicated to the mem- ory of the late Dr. A. C. Kleine. Included in the program were works by Boccherini, Rimsky-Korsakow and Herbert. The Symphony Orchestra inspired and thrilled the largest and most musically enthusiastic audience to appear in the Commons. The Concert Orchestra was directed by Floyd Rundle, and served as a radio orchestra. The Salon Orchestra is perhaps the most ac- tive of the three-appearing in affairs present at college, church and civic affairs. -Members of the string quartet are as fol- lows: Karol Hok, first violing Ruth Bauman. second violing Mardelle Kleih, violag Mary Katherine French, cello. A trio directed by Ruth Bauman provides occasional music for teas and other social functions. l fmgv rigbly-follr The Girls' Quartet is composed of four outstanding students selected from the A Cappella choir. The members for this year were: Myrna Belle McMahon, first sopranog Izetta Schmidt, second sopranog Winifred Young, Hrst alto: and Dorothy Boyd, second alto and manager. The quartet is organized for the purpose of developing the musician- ship of its members and to give them experi- ence in singing as a representative group from the University. This popular organization is in demand throughout the year to supply music in churches and at civic affairs in Dubuque and surrounding cities. The reper- toire includes both secular and sacred selec- tions of the highest quality. Accompanist for the group this year was Marjorie Meinert. lug: uglrty nw u rtetaf Each year a Male Quartet is selected from the personnel of the A Cappella Choir to rep- resent the school in various n1usical, social, and religious affairs in Dubuque, and through- out the surrounding states. The quartet is selected for their blend of voices, general musicianship, and interest, as well as a de- sire to work together for a common idea. The members of the quartet were Donald Boyd, Hrst tenor, Floyd Rundle, second tenor, Warren Rundle, baritone, and Gerald Smith, bass. This group has been organized for two years and in that time has acquired an envi- able reputation. It has become perhaps the most widely travelled of the musical organi- zations of the campus. An excellent repertoire has been prepared, and the group is in demand for churches, clubs, and various social events. Slllulq-Fitzpatrick, Kruse, Deale, Lzlsl-icy, Van Sant, Angell, May, Ukcna.

Beginning its fifth year, the CUE under Romo Ruszo, editor, endeavored to continue its presentation of a living record of life at the University of Dubuque. Employing a staff of approximately thirty students, the CUE has provided an excellent opportunity for the journalistically inclined to gain prac- tical experience. The CUE Flash was abolished this year, but the regular biweekly edition jumped its circulation to approximately twelve hundred and the mailing list was comprised of names from sixteen states and Puerto Rico. Alum- ni, high schools and other colleges have thus been kept informed of the University's ac- tivities. Following the publication of the Hfth is- sue, the editorship changed hands and Mar- gery Deale became editor-in-chief with Cal- vin Ukena as her associate. Working under them were news editors, Marjorie Lewis, Claire Schwanebeck, Bill Schoentgen and Ethelda Norberg. Al Ney as sports editor and Floyd Rundle as music editor also con- tributed important services as did Bill Grings, staff photographer. A sizeable staff of re- porters and feature writers gave regularly of their time, and each Monday night of publication week, five able proof readers checked copy with the proofs. Clifford Kruse capably handled the CUE'S finances for the year. He was assisted first semester by Charles Greener who was suc- ceeded second semester by Dorothy Laskey. During the course of the year the CUE moved its office twice and was located at different times in three rooms, finally organ- izing permanent headquarters in the former ping pong room. Here the last of the year's eighteen issues was put out, closing the record of the school year, which was built on the platform now become classic with the CUE 1. To present' a living record of student life at the University. 2. To encourage and to coordinate the various efforts aimed at improving and add- ing greater meaning to that life. 3. To provide a laboratory training in practical journalism. lmti iligbly wx Junker, Folsom, Frnnzenburg, Iiiscnschmidt, Trapp. Zillig, Ksehr, Bauman.

The credit for any success which this vol- ume might enjoy belongs to each and every member of the staff, and to the close co- operation and willing spirit in which they worked. The compilation of 21 yearbook has not been an easy task. And yet, we feel well justified for the labor which has been ex- pended by both the editorial and business staifs for the training and experience it has afforded. We, the members of the Junior Class who have had any part in the publishing of this book, hope you like it! International Relations Club The International Relations Club, founded in 1936 under the auspices of the Carnegie Endowment Fund for International Peace, completed its fourth year on the campus of the University of Dubuque. Meetings on alternate Tuesdays offered a varied program throughout the year. Under the direction of the club's officers, Thomas Megahey, president, Herbert Guth, vice president, and Robert Sharp, secre- tary, this organization planned some interest- ing meetings for the discussion of pertinent international developments in the European war situation as well as other international questions. One high light of the activities of the year was the banquet in Peter Commons ten- dered by the University to the members of the organization on March twelfth. Pro- fessor Paul M. Vail led a rapid-fire round table discussion on the Finnish situation and the treaty with Russia. A second highlight in keeping with the ever-changing foreign situation was the talk "The Finnish Peace in Regard to the five Major Powers" given by Dr. Hans Kirch- berger. It was followed by some of our stu- dent representatives of European countries presenting an enlightening discussion on the present Norwegian crisis. The International Relations Club sent three representatives, Thomas Megahey, Al Scheele and Donald Kehrli, to the collegiate Inter- national Peace Conference in Chicago on April nineteenth and twentieth. The program con- sisted of conferences and tours to points of interest in Chicago. This organization represents a nucleus of university students whore purpose is to study intelligently the problems of international relations and to promote the same interest in the members of the studnt body. Faculty Club The Faculty Club makes a significant con- tribution to the intellectual and social wel- fare of the members of the faculty and their wives. Newcomers find in these informal meet- ings an opportunity to become acquainted with their fellow workers, and to feel the common intellectual pulse and spiritual tone of the University leaders. All members find stimulation in the discovery of talents and unsuspected depths of the personalities of their co-workers and in the interchange of ideas. The program for the year 1939-40 in- eluded: Picnic supper at Derby Grange, Mr. john Rider Wallis, college bursar, host, election of officers. Musical lecture, "Factors in Music Appre- ciation" by Professor Reynold McKeown of the department of music. Lecture on the Wagner Relations Act of the New Deal by Professor Paul Vail of the department of economics. Readings from "The Magic Mountain" and "Il Bajazzo" by Dr. Herman S. Ficke, in anticipation of the induction of Thomas Mann as honorary rector. "The Place of the Faculty Member in the Program of the Church-Related School" by Reverend C. Vin White, dean of the Semi- nary. Lecture, "Soeialized Medicine" by Dr. Don- ald Conzett. Family picnic at Eagle Point Park. The officers for the year were president, Dr. R. G. Wilson, vice-president, Prof. A. E. Van Eaton, secretary-treasurer, Florence Mul- heim. Alumni Association The Alumni Association of the University of Dubuque looks forward with much joy and enthusiasm to its annual meeting on the campus of its Alma Mater. These meetings are always held during Commencement Week. On Sunday, june 4, 1939, alumni arrived and attended open house from 2:00 to 4:00 p. m. Student guides conducted tours through the various buildings where special exhibits or demonstrations were being given. From 4:00 to 5:00 p. m. all enjoyed the annual band concert under the direction of Ferdinand Di Tella. In the evening President Dale Welch de- livered the Baccalaureate Address in West- minster Presbyterian Church. At 7:00 p. m. on Monday evening five undergraduate students competed in the Alumni Oratorical Contest. Prizes were Won by Harold Nagel, first, Orrin Moore, secondg Dorothy Banks, third. Rev. William Grossheim, '18, was speaker at the Alumni Banquet. The alumni went directly from the banquet to the lounge in Peters Commons. Much interest was shown in the Freedom from Debt Fund, and a plan for the solicitation of alumni who had not already contributed was presented by Duane XVilson and adopted. Mx' iglvlvv-riglrl The Facultette Blu The Facultette is an organization composed of women members of the University, wives of the men of the faculty, and women mem- bers of the University office staff. It was founded by Mrs. C. M. Steffens, wife of "the builder" of the University. Desiring to fos- ter a spirit of genuine helpfulness to students iri the social areas of their education, she con- ceived this medium through which to work. Her idea was immediately accepted by the group to which she appealed, and through the years since that time the Facultette has worked in various ways to beautify the set- ting for and intensify the desire of social activities. Meetings are held every second Thursday of the month in the homes of members. Com- mittees are appointed for each meeting and they provide programs and refreshments. Usually the point of conversation at the meetings is upon current events, recent books, school activities, and plans for whatever con- tribution the club may make to the life of the University. Each year the club tries to make at least one tangible contribution to the school, and especially to Severance Hall. Last year, through the help of the Y.W.C.A., a silver coffee service was provided, and this year were added two large glass plates to be used at teas and other functions of that nature. Officers for this year are: Mrs. James Beach, president, Mrs. Samuel S. George, vice presi- dent, Mrs. Anson E. Van Eaton, secretary- treasurer. e ancl White Club The Blue and White Club was organized in September, 1937, and has enjoyed three successful years promoting good fellowship and supporting the athletic program of the University of Dubuque. The club has been well received and sup- ported by more than one hundred business and professional men of Dubuque. Regard- less of other affiliations, members End the Blue and White Club a common meeting ground for all that are interested in clean, amateur sports. The purposes for which the organization was established are: to support the athletic program of the University of Dubuque, to foster the spirit of clean, amateur sportsman- shipg and to foster the spirit of fellowship among the members. Meetings of the club have been held on I lqz' i'igbf-ye Him' the second Tuesday of each month during the school year. Members have appeared at all important athletic events, and they and their wives have been entertained after basketball games. Officers for the year were: Clint Miller, president, Walter Daykin, first vice-presidentg Carl E. Kiesele, Junior, second vice-president, and William B. Zuker, treasurer. Mr. D. D. Knight served as secretary until he left the University to take up his duties at Iowa Wes- leyan in November. His secretarial duties have been assumed by Mr. John Rider Wallis. A vote of thanks for his fine service to the club was extended to Mr. Knight upon his retirement, and he was made an honorary member. The roll of honor of the Blue and White Club also includes two life members, John G. Chalmers, and Dr. Donovan F. Ward, both named for distinguished service. Zeta Sigma Pi With investigation, decision, and action as its watchwords, the Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Sigma Pi, national honorary social science fraternity, began its fifth year at the University of Dubuque under the guidance of Jane Groom, president, Earl Bankson, vice- presidentg Arthur Host, secretary, Clarice Strand, corresponding secretaryg and Helen Baumgartner, treasurer. Founded in 1935 at Wilmington College, Zeta Sigma Pi meets the needs of the smaller colleges which are too often neglected by other national social science fraternities. Be- ing an honorary fraternity, entrance require- ments are high, these include an average grade of not less than 'B" in all college work, ten hours of work in the social sciences, and the preparation of a paper in the field of the social sciences. Our ideals emphasize not only a high scholastic standard, but stress the need for a scientific approach to modern problems, a new social idealism, sympathy and broad mindedness, sacrifice, and social service. Several candle-light initiations were held during the year at which times those students who were found to be eligible were initiated. Last December a national alumni association was formed, and Miss Dorothy Goebelt of Dubuque, class of 1938, had the honor of being made the first member. The highlight of the year was the official presentation to the local chapter of our new blue and gold fraternity flag. fdmd The dramatics department has been active this year under the direction of Donald C. Eyssen, the speech and dramatics coach who joined the faculty last year and supervised the re-establishment of the department. The activities of 1939-1940 reveal extensive im- provement. By remodeling, the auditorium of the little theater has been improved so that the sight line will be satisfactory at all points. The adequate stage has been improved with the addition of a new switchboard and spot lights and the replacing of some of the old scenery with new. The costume ward- robe in the workroom behind the stage has been remodeled and enlarged. Many cos- tumes have been added to the wardrobe. some coming from interested friends as far east as Pennsylvania and New York. A num- ber of fine, expensive Shakesperian costumes are the product of hours of work in the work- shop and constitute a valuable addition to the wardrobe. "The Night of January 16" by Ayn Rand was presented by the university players dur- ing the Homecoming season on the nights of November second, third and sixth. The plot concerns a murder trial with evidence and witnesses presented on both sides. The ver- dict is rendered by a jury from the audience. "Our Town," the first all-school play of the season, was presented December 14, 15 and 16. The plot of the play centers in the romance of a boy and a girl from neigh- boring families, but the author's intent is to dramatize the events in the every day life at Grover's Corners, a typical small town. i jmgr' llill1'f-3 One is left with the impression that living people grope through life missing most of experience, but that the dead realize its essences. This modern play is presented with- out properties and is introduced and com' mented upon by the stage manager who is present during the entire production. The excellent presentation was a credit to the dramatics department. "The Squaring of the Circlef' a Russian comedy, was presented on February 22, 23 and 24. The play, by Valentine Kataev, satirizes the Soviet Union through the medium of a plot concerning young people and their mixed love affairs. The playwright takes many a dig at the mistakes and exaggera- tions of his countrymen. "The Bishop's Candlesticks," a special pro- duction, was prepared for presentation "on the road." The final and major production of the year was "The Taming of the Shrew," famous Shakespcrian comedy presented at the May lfete. This inaugurated what is expected to become an annual event, namely, the presenta- tion of one of the plays of Shakespeare each year.

Van Eaton Martha Zehetner page ninvlj 1 Gamma Activities Friday afternoon the Gamma Gals, twelve strong, piled into cars and traveled to Frentress Lake for the annual Flunk Week. Fair weather offset the struggles with a balky stove and the discovery that one of the beds was minus a mattress. Miss Happ immediately adopted an eight year old master fisherman so that she could find the choicest "f'ishin' holes." Up at five the next morning for a day filled with boating with the Phi O's, Anne braving the icy water, and all of us eating and EATING. NVinnie arrived opportunely at eventide with pop for the gang. Sunday and music from the victrola and an afternoon concert by "Norm." Oh, and the Sunday funny papers scattered from one end of the cottage to the other. Buffy still slaving at her English papers. The evening climaxed with a huge bonfire and marshmallows and "s'mores". Singing around the campfire and listening to the returning echoes. The next day we packed up and left, taking with us fond memories of food, snakes, sun- sets, Lois and Leah on hard springs, mosquitoes, moonlight nights-and all these began with a Rose Tea at the home of Mrs. Lillie. This was followed by a brought to life again at our Summer Reunion. In the fall thirteen actives returned to the campus to begin the new season, under the leadership of Lois as our "prexy." Founders' Day was celebrated at the Indian Lodge at which time Winnie received the Activity Necklace and Frannie the Schol- arship Bracelet for the second time. Soon after we initiated Marion Loetscher as one of our honoraries. We came back from our Christmas holiday to plunge into the rush season which Dude Ranch party where the Gamma Cowpunchers entertained with old-fashioned square dancing and real "ranch grub." At the formal Preference Dinner, "Sophisticated Swing" held sway. Pledge duties began when fourteen girls received their green and yellow ribbons at the pledge service and tea held at the home of Mrs. Campbell. Hell Week came with pigtails, harem veils, kitty books, black stockings and paper petticoats, carrying candy for actives and saying "ma'am." The informal initiation in the Rec Room brought to light hidden talents, featuring Bobby as Baby Snooks and our hula dancer, Heinie. Again formal initiation as "Old Holland" when Magee gave the definition of a Gamma as being "An angel without wings and many other human characteristics." And so the end of another great year for Gamma Phi Delta, founded October 15, 1936, now completing its fourth year and looking forward to many more good years. mme, Top Rout--Gould, Brady, Laskey, Skinner, D.

Knight jmge :firmly-riglwt Lambda Activities T2 ii! 1 For a week-end of fun and frolic the Lambda Taus packed up and again made their way to Anamosa for Flunk Week. A huge cabin was ready for them, well sup- plied with beds, a kitchen and necessary equipment, and a fireplace that served a number of purposes, including the roasting of marshmallows. Early morning risers played golf while disturbed sleepers attempted to sleep again before breakfast. The days were spent in hiking, golfing, playing tennis, roller-skating, bicycling, canoeing, sun bathing, and trips to town. Charades, popping corn, and attempting to study occupied the evenings until bed time and sleep came. Even the midnight "visitors" didn't spoil the girls' fun or dampen their spirits, they all took golf clubs to bed ready to defend themselves if need be. Yes, the mention of Anamosa brings back many memories of a glorious week-end. The new year opened with an Inter-Sorority tea to welcome new girls. All the sororities participated in entertaining for the occasion. Before the rushing season sev- eral joyous events took place. A Mexican fiesta date party was held at the Julien, and colorful decorations, Spanish music, serving of chili gave the Mexican atmosphere. An informal tea was given for Mrs. Kenneth Mercer, new honorary member, and the Christmas party before vacation was held at the home of Mrs. H. Clifford Fox. The monthly get-togethers were opportunities for recreation and sociability. Plans were begun early for rush week. The first party was a tea at the Y. W. C. A., spiced tea was served while the guests were entertained by the active members. At the Lambda Tau Musical College, "Mrs, Kay Kyser" entertained the rushees. She questioned the "students" to test their knowledge, and to all participants she gave candy cigarettes, while the winners were awarded candy money. For the final prefer- ence party, the five new pledges were taken to a theatre party, after which Mrs. Mercer served a buffet supper and the girls were given corsages to help remember the occasion. The period of pledgeship followed with the grand climax of "Hell Week" and wearing of outlandish costumes, no make-up and hair in braids, grass skirts, rain coats, and umbrellas, baby outfits complete with bibs, bottles, rattles and dolls. The pledges happily QPJ obeyed the actives thinking of that day when they could give orders and perhaps have them carried out. The informal initiation and the formal "Rose Ceremony" made these girls active members. Then, activities begin over once again with Flunk W'eek, Inter-Sorority dance, and more happy memories. 2 Top Row-J. Humke, H. Humke, Mathey, Zuker, French, Berg, Church, Mohrman, E.

Wight 1' um' lvumf Zeta Activities So the Zetas end another year, with memories of informal parties, rushing, pledging, and dinners and dances. The year's fun started with a scavenger hunt and "Shovel Shag" at Wunderlichis Hall where everyone learned the W.P.A. technique of punching a time-clock and "cutting in." Even the nickelodeon and brown lunch bags seemed extraordinary that night. Then rushing started at the traditional English Tea-with tea and crumpets, sachets of Old English Lavender, and Mrs. Wight's "Song of the Sea" before a roaring birch-log fire. But the rushees quickly changed from "ladies" to "thugs" at the jail Party where each was tried-with quips by the Bailiff, thoroughly punished, and finally fed bread and water. When a select nine of the rushees "went Zeta," everyone celebrated in their honor at a "World Premier of Pinocchio" in the Art Room of the Julien. The celebrities present were given a great ovation with expectations of their making "Zeta history." A But the new pledges soon learned the art of complete obedience and "respect for their elders" during their pledge period. Few Zetas will soon forget the chocolate pie under the rotunda, shining the professors' shoes, or the sorority lipstick brand. At an early sunrise ceremony, these nine new pledges became nine new sisters in the Zeta Phi Sorority, and were accepted with full privileges. A formal dinner was given in their honor that evening when they sang for the last time, "A lonesome pledge am I, I think that I shall die." The year ended with a "Spinsters' Spree" formal dance when all the Zetas took full advantage of Leap Year in escorting and entertaining their dates. And off to another Flunk Week at Frentress, with memories of the '39 camping trip still fresh: comical memories of Esther's lost shoes, pancake flour in the chocolate pie, an obliging surveyor from the U. S. Government who took all our pictures, watery Jello salad, and washing at the neighbor's pump, pathetic memories of sunburn cream, straight hair, three on a cot, and mosquitoes, and really grand recollections of chicken and shortcake, huge bonhres, the marshmallow roast, a moonlight sing in canoes on the lake, and sunset on the river. And so the Zetas end another year-not only with memories-but with new friendships formed, old friendships deepened, and new sisters to carry on the "Zeta tradition."

Garvin Prof. Noel Logan Mr. Ferdinand Di Tella page 0l1l'llIlllH'I lun Athenaean Activities a In the spring most young men's fancies turn to love, but not so with the Athen- aean's. First their fancies turned to Frentress, and then they turned to fishing, swimming and boating. The fishing was not so good as expected, the swimming was fine, and when it came to boating the A's were always out in front. They had to be or the "boat" supply was depleted. To be looked upon favorably by the weaker sex, man has always been compelled to entertain. Knowing this full well, and realizing that the prestige of the fraternity lay on their shoulders, a party was planned. With the cooperation of all, the Zetas were summoned to come to the Ais camp at the first signs of a fire in the front yard. The boys busied themselves with repairing the phonograph Qa replica of the first one made by Edison in 19031, gathering fire-wood, laying blankets for the purpose of ant control, and lastly buying marshmallows. At the appointed signal the girls dropped in and the festivities began. Everyone sang, and the party continued until there was nothing left but to say good night. It was truly a perfect evening, the fresh yellow moon vied with the campfire for the glory of reflecting in the water, and though the campfire burned out and died, that same moon will be waiting to welcome the Athen- aeans next year, and in the years to come. Exerything was rosy in the A's camp, especially Delbert's back, while Lloyd showed everyone that he was very careful and never ventured out in a canoe alone-if he could help it. "Little Sir Echo" was bouncing back and forth from soprano to bari- tone and back again. "Flunk Week" ended, but memories linger on. With Ray Srumbaugh as president, pledging season opened in the fall with a stag party held at the home of a past president, Bob Lungwitz. A number of good parties were held during the weeks of rushing, paddles were broken, onions digested, and a mighty fine crop of brothers taken into the fraternity. The Athenaeans won the inter- fraternity basketball tournament by virtue of a fast stepping aggregation of seven first string varsity men, as well as the interfraternity indoor track meet. The spring formal banquet and dance was a fitting conclusion to a well-rounded year. Top Raul-Allen, Middcnts, Moore, Sclimeiser, Swanson. Miilfllr' Ron'-R. Tjadcn, NlacAskill, Ukena, Vnldeiv, G.

Then in the summer-reliving all this at our summer steak fry--reliving mem- ories of a successful and pleasant year for Phi Omicron. Throughout the life of the University, Phi Omicron has centered in the activ- ities of the school. Our members contribute to practically every phase of school activity-music, dramatics, journalism, and athletics. With a pledge to loyalty and devotion to the ideals of the University, Phi O has maintained a sincere interest and participation in University life. Emphasis is not placed upon the social fraternity man, but on his equally important aspects-the mental, cultural, physical, and spiritual phases of brotherhood. Again in 1939 as in several years previous, the fraternity won the Scholarship cup-awarded annually to the fraternity with the highest scholastic average. Highlights of the year-Treasure Rush in Eagle Point Park, trailing asylum "nuts" . . . Theater parties . . . Community Sing with "Dinah," "Some of These Days" . . . Swimming party with teeth chattering like rhythmic castanets . . . Fellowship ban- quets . . . Bowling parties with Fran and Doc-high in the clouds . . . Founders' Day Banquet . . . Pledges' Party at the "Opery House" . . , Hell Week with all its ups and downs . . . Paddle sessions . . . Informal Vigil . . . Then the formal initiation climaxing weeks of anticipation . . . Candlelight, warm hand-shakes, music, solemnity . . . Unity . . . and finally the Spring dinner-dance. And so we have another year in memory. From the beginning of our history Phi Omicron has upheld the highest ideals of brotherhood and fraternity. This year the value of such a standard has been fully realized, affording the richest return possible from fraternity life. Toll Rou'-Bell, Sechrisr, H. Conzetx. Ohanesian, Gehlson, Kanavas, Buckley.

May 19th found the Thirteen Club's chariots rolling over the highway toward Camp O'Delhi, while our inimitable songs were raised to the good gods that bring fair weather. Our songs were heeded, and as a result we had three perfect days of relaxation. Friday afternoon found five of us pouring into P. Snider's place in Brother Van Eaton's jallopy which was loaded down to the Plimsoll mark. Some, as yet unascertained trouble, delayed the majority of the boys, and they did not show up until Saturday evening, but the first load of us took care of things. Our first task was to get the camp in order, and then a social call on the Delta tribe was in order. After this very Christian act was accomplished, we headed back to camp and cooked what was to be the first of our marvelous meals. Brothers Deale and Ujlaky presided. This was followed by a swim, another social call, and finally bed at a rather late hour. Professor Van Eaton had to leave for town the next day, and Dr. Zuker was unable to reach our party, so as chaperons we had a little two year old blond, Patsy and her grandmother to take care of us. The blond claimed a good share of our time! One of the highlights of our stay was an exploring trip we made along the river. NVe discovered some caves along the edge of the river, and we had a good time exploring them. NVe had to clean up after this trip, and Brother Gelzer took some rather incriminating pictures of the gang. Most of us got a beautiful sunburn on this trip, too. As we have previously mentioned, our meals were especially good, especially to the Delta gang. For some reason they got fed up on shortcakes Hlled with peanut butter! Our Sunday ham was enough to make any mouth water. This year rushing season started a bit late, but by the time Christmas vacation rolled around, we had pledged a good bunch to take the place of the boys we had lost by graduation and by transferring. After we came back from our two week home stand, we had our usual Hell Week informal, to which the former pledges can now say, "And how!" We shouldn't lose any one next fall, so while this year has been a good one, next year should be one to remember. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, and expect former members from all over the United States. We believe that the friendships that we have made a bit more binding, and the times that we have had together as members of the fraternity will last a long time in all of our memories. eg ?C1 yea y Mgr' mn' lmmlrwl tru E 2 14 tl: le tim ?ovt6a I New Head Coach and Athletic Director Kenneth Mercer opened practice for the 1939 season with a squad of forty-five men. With material including only eight letter- men, Coaches Mercer and Schultz developed a light but speedy team. Returning letter- men included Captain Gene Werkheiser, Hen- ry Seibert, Francis Eberhardt, Bucky Rogers, Bob Besch, Melvin McDonald, Bob Schiers, and John Broussard. Before the season was well underway, the Mercermen were consid- ered to have the best passing attack in the Iowa Conference. The Spartans again fin- ished in the top division, with four victories and two defeats in Conference competition. The gridsters opened their season at Pella, Iowa, where they lost a hard fought game to the Central Dutchmen. Off to a slow start, the Spartans came back the second half to score a touchdown against Coach Bud Tysseling's Red and White aggregation. It was not long, however, until a spinner reverse with Bob Menning on the receiving end of the pass resulted in a touchdown. The Pella men missed the conversion, tying the score at 6 and 6. Captain Gene Werkheiser chose to kick. Davis, a Pella substitute back, fumbled the kick-off, kicked the ball, picked it up, and ran into his own men, again fumbling the ball. Recovering it, he scampered to another touchdown, which was followed by a conver- sion by Don Menning. Whitewater Teachers of Whitewater, Wis- consin, matched the Spartans' air attack to win by a 19 to 0 margin the following week. Dubuque was soon halted after the Hrst quarter when they threatened to score on their rivals' ten yard line. Strohacker, White- water left halfback, was the principal thorn in the flesh of the Iowans. He took a 45 yard touchdown pass from Larina, the Teachers' triple-threat performer, in the second quarter, and scored for the Wisconsin boys to lead 7 to 0 at halftime. Strohacker again went over in the third period, taking a twenty-five yard toss from Gulan and cluding the Spartans' poor sec- ondary defense. Captain Gene Wferkheiser and Melvin McDonald played the best all- around ball for Dubuque. In their first home game of the season, the University men treated the fans to a KUEFFLER BLACKBOURN RICKERT SELL ERGREN ROGERS thrilling last quarter 60 yard touchdown for a 12 to 9 victory over a well-balanced Iowa Wesleyan team from Mount Pleasant. A pass from Bob Sellergren to Emil Lussow, and a lateral to Herb Trapp produced the final scoring that brought victory to the University for the first time this year. Wesleyan was the first team to score. The Tigers' only touchdown came in the second period after the first quarter had passed with- out either team threatening. Dubuque's first score came when they recovered a Tiger fum- ble on the enemy's three yard line. Eighteen yards were then picked up on a pass from Sellergren to Trapp. Sellergren gained three more yards, and on the next play he went over standing up for the home team's first score. Besch tried for the extra point, but Bruned broke through the defense to block it. For Dubuque Sellergren, Trapp, Seibert and Captain Gene Werkheiser were the stars. The DeKalb Teachers of DeKalb, Illinois, furnished the opposition for the Spartans in their next encounter. By taking advantage of every mistake made by the University squad, the Profs beat Dubuque 20 to 12 in a game marked by fumbles and a thrill- packed second half. DeKalb controlled the ground all afternoon, but the "U" varsity had full charge of the airways. The Profs completed only one of fifteen passes, but this was food for the final touchdown of the game and the one that clinched the game for the Teachers. DeKalb's first score came as the result of Lussow's kick blocked on the fifteen yard page o 1 bmnlrrrl ilrirlrm BESCH TRAPP HOLZHAUER line. Young picked the ball up and scam- pered over for the only touchdown of the first half. The second half opened with John Hayden scoring on a fifty-four yard run on the second play to give DeKalb a fourteen point lead after the second conversion was made. The Spartans then cut loose on their aerial attack. Sellergren passed to Lussow, who lateraled to Hank Seibert and Seibert to Shimp. Another pass to Broussard put the ball in position for Bob Besch to plunge over the goal from the one yard line to give Dubuque their first score. DeKalb made their next touchdown on a pass from Eby to Lewis. The Blue and White offense began to click as Bob Stone- burner ran back the next kick-off to the forty-two yard line. Consistent passes from Sellergren to Lussow and Trapp put the Spar- tans again in scoring position, with the final touchdown coming on a pass to Lussow, who scampered the remaining 15 yards to a touch- down. Captain Gene Werkheiser, Seibert and Eberhardt were outstanding on defense for Dubuque. W ERRHEISER SEIBERT SHIMP Mc DONALD EBERHARDT SCHIERS The Spartans engaged Buena Vista of their own conference the following Friday to take an easy game 13 to 0. Bob Schiers, hard driving quarterback. plunged across from the one-yard line to open the scoring in the second half. A pa's from Schiers to Lussow accounted for the extra point. The second half got underway with a slight snowfall, with Schiers and Besch smashing the line for consistent gains. Coach Mercer substituted freely, as he did in pre- vious games. The Beavers gave way under the reserves as well, and then Schiers re- turned to the game, and on a weak-side p'ny, hit the tackle hole and reversed his field with a twenty-seven yard run for another touchdown. The try for extra point was blocked as Besch attempted a conversion. Outstanding defense play was performed by "Sweet Pea" McDonald and Eberhardt. Schi- ers and Besch led the offense through the Beavers right tackle. Dubuque University made itself a con- tender for the Iowa Conference champion- LUSSOV' BROUSSARD ship as the Spartans bowled over Wartburg 27 to 0 as a large Homecoming crowd shout- ed its approval. A smashing rally in the second period brought the Spartans three touchdowns within a short space of time. Most spectacular of the Spartan touchdowns came on the kick-off following the initial score. Schiers received the ball, ran five yards and lateraled to Lussow, who reversed his field and galloped Clown the sidelines for a 75 yard touchdown run. The first touchdown came as Schicrs car- ried the ball to the Knights' 24 yard line, where Sellergren ran to his left, cut outside tackle and went over for six points. Broussard accounted for the third score after consistently plunging through the mid- dle of the line. The Mercermen remained scoreless the third period, but came back in thc fouth period after Schiers returned a punt to the 41 and then passed to Bob Stone- burner, who galloped 32 yards to a Hrst down on W'artburg's eight yard line. Doug Mc- Kenzie picked up seven yards, and then a pass to Captain Werkheiser made the score 27 to 0 as the game ended. A Green Wave from Parsons College spoiled the local team's championship chances as the W'ildcats ran roughshod over the Spartans, 19 to 6. Ray Tennant and fleet-footed jerry Miller carried the brunt of their attack. Con- sistent defensive work by Gene Werkheiser and Melvin McDonald kept the Spartans in the game as Tennant repeatedly crashed th: middle of the Dubuquefs line. fmgz' am' lun: fu I nurfiru The Spartans' only score came as a result of a pass from Bob Schiers to Lussow after Broussard recovered a Green and Maroon fumble. At various times, Bob Kuefller, Bill Holzhauer, I-Iank Seibert, and Mel Mc- Donald showed up well on defense and of- fense, as did Sellcrgren and McKenzie in their final efforts to score by completing passes to Lussow, Broussard, Stoneburner and Trapp. In the last game of the season, the "U" closed its books on Coach Mercer's first year as gridiron mentor with a favorable balance, as they trounced Penn 15 to 7. Penn scored first in the initial period on a pass to Roe, who sprinted Sl yards on a sensational run. The try for the point was good as Gammon placekickcd. It was not long, however, until Schiers scored after a series of passes to Bob Kueffler, star offensive and defensive end. The kick was wide, but the Spartans marked up two points on a safety as Kueffler tackled Evans behind the goal. The last Spartan counter came on a 28 yard pass from Sellergren to Kueffler. which brought the ball near the Penn goal. Shimp bucked the line for several gains, and then Sellergren passed to Lussow, who scampered for the final marker. So ended the Spartan gridiron season un- der a new coach. "Moco,' Mercer will again have a strong contender for the conference championship next year with many veterans, led again by Captain Gene W'erkheiser, with Blackbourn, tackle, Kueffler, Lussow, Dieter, and Riedel, endsg Blum, Rickert, Holzhauer, guardsg no center, but ample backs in Sel- lergren, Shimp, Schiers, Broussard, Stone- burner, Trapp, McKenzie, and Thoman. The team will be light, but should have a speedy oifense and another fine passing attack. First Row-Lussnw, Riekert. Sellergren, Trapp, Blum, Stoneburner, Tlioman, Schiers, Blackbourn.

Using two full teams, Coach Moco Mercer saw a smooth fast breaking offense. The heavy scoring was led by Bill Riedel, Doug McKenzie and Emil Lussow who amassed a total of 31 points among them. The following Monday the Mercermen set out on a two-day road trip where they pol- ished off their Erst conference foes, Penn and Central. In the game against Penn the Dubuque team played a strong defensive game holding the Penn cagers to seven goals. They led throughout the game and took an easy victory, 38 to 20, as Coach Mercer again substituted his whole squad. Lussow and Riedel again led the scoring with 9 and S points respectively. As in the Penn game the "U" bowled over the Central Dutchmen 34 to 24. Lussow was hitting from all angles as he scored 19 points. Captain Erwin Schwartz played a good defensive game. For Central Louppee was the best man on the floor. Marked as championship contenders the locals rolled to an easy victory on the home floor over the powerful Upper Iowa Univer- sity by a score of S1 to 29. Bob Peterson, flashy senior forward was red hot as he poured in 17 points. When the Spartans led 46 to 17, Coach Mercer substituted his sec- ond string which kept up the scoring pace led by Doug McKenzie and Mel McDonald Bill Riedel held Dale Alderson, conference scoring champ, to 7 points until the reserves entered the game and then Alderson rang up his total to 14, to pace the Upper Iowa offense. The "U" was still riding along on the crest of the Iowa Conference race after de- feating Wartburg 56 to 30 in their next encounter. Emil Lussow snagged 17 points for high scoring honors. Bill Riedel, who scored eight points, played a good defen- sive game along with Gene Werkheiser and Captain Erwin Schwartz. With almost a week's rest, the Spartans travelled south where they ran rough-shod over Parsons 43 to 32 for their sixth straight victory. Paced by Schwartz and Riedel, who gathered 19 points between them, they got off to a fast start, but lagged 19 to 18 at the half time period. The second half opened with two baskets by Peterson and a short shot by Schiers. From then on the Spartans played without three page om' brmlr I uxtrru regulars, Werkheiser, Schwartz, and Lussow, who were put out by the four foul route. However, they built up a lead never passed by Parsons. The following night the Spartans felt their first defeat at the hands of Iowa Wesleyan, where they lost 31 to 30 to Bub Krieger and Company. However, they still retained their position at the top of the conference. Bill Riedel hit for 15 points the follow- ing Tuesday as Luther's mighty Swedes fell before Coach Mercer's squad 37 to 34. A 16 to 15 lead at halftime by Luther was soon overcome in the second half, as Sellergren, Peterson, and Riedel began to hit from all angles. The biggest crowd ever to witness a cage game in McCormick Gymnasium was there to see the Spartans take their seventh game out of eight starts. Luckless Wartburg again fell into the hands of the Mercermen as they dropped 40 to 26. The Spartans went out in the first place con- ference position with eight wins and one loss. So on went the season with another vic- tory over Penn. Schwartz, Sellergrcn, Peter- son, and Riedel were unstoppable as they poured basket after basket in to pile up a 24 to 11 lead at the half. The second team played well as they built up the lead in the third period to polish off another victim S1 to 33. Next a 36 to 32 last-half rally by the vir- tue of 16 free-throws helped the Spartans take Parsons. Captain Schwartz, Werk- heiser, Sellergren, and Lussow dropped one free throw in after the other as they tried to regain a 16 to 6 lead by Parsons in the opening minutes. The last half saw that famous Spartan rally, and again they emerged as victors by the score of 36 to 32. Iowa Wesleyan, the jinx team, led by Bub Krieger again eased out a narrow victory of 43 to 41 in a see-saw battle that didn't end until the buzzer rang. The only team to beat Dubuque the entire season was Wes- leyan, by one point the first time and two the second. However, the Spartans didn't stop at this. With more encouragement than ever from "Moto" Mercer, they drubbed Penn S1 to 33, as Schwartz swished through 17 points. Then Buena Vista dropped 54 to 43 as Lussow and Sellergren collaborated to amass 33 points between them. Riedel, Werkheiser and McDonald all played good defensive games as they rolled up a 34 to 14 point margin. The Buena Vista team p :ge om' b1n:freifxc'z'er1tr'1'u never came within ten points of the Spar- tans' lead. Again Upper Iowa fell, and then Luther. Luther was taken by a narrow margin, 39 to 38, as the officials played a great game. Seventeen personal fouls with a few tech- nicals were called against Dubuque, as the Norsemen shot 35 free gifts, to make 18 good ones. Lussow and Peterson kept plugging away at the basket with the other Spartans and despite their six rivals they still man- aged to win on a free throw in the closing seconds by Bill Riedel. Central came to Dubuque and dropped S0 to 44 as the Spartans rang up their final vic- tory. Lussow, Peterson, and Schwartz shot at will to amass a total of 49 points between them. Never were the Spartans behind, but were threatened several times by a five point margin. Finishing in the top division of the Con- ference, the Spartans completed a great sea- son. To Coach Mercer goes the credit of developing two fine teams--in both football and basketball. Firsf Raw-Lungwitz, Trapp, Dodge, Ryan, Feller, Conzett, Kanavas, Casteel.

With such returning lettermen as Captain Milton Conzett, Bob Lungwitz. Herb Trapp, Delbert Casteel, john Broussard and Nate Dodge, and such new men as John Kanavas, captain and star of Dubuque Senior I-Iigh's 1939 wrestling team, Dick Kluckhohn, former University of Illinois letterman, and Chuck Ryan, husky ex-DeKalb grappler, a team which was well-balanced and experi- enced opened the season. Cornell College narrowly defeated the Spartans in the first dual meet, 21 to 18. Vic- tories over Beloit and Augustana soon fol- lowed. Augustana was defeated by the score of 33 to 3. Illinois Normal held the Spar- tans to a tie of 12 to 12, while the Univer- sity of Wisconsin barely beat the Spartans 20 to 18. Other dual meets were held with Whea- ton, Whom the Blue and White thoroughly trounced 27 to 3. De Kalb, through two Dubuque defaults, won 18 to 10. The Wheaton Invitational Meet again placed the Spartans second. Winners were Lungwitz, Conzett, and Kanavas, while Trapp and Ryan placed second. The National Intercollegiate Meet at Urbana, Illinois, saw three Spartan wrestlers entered, Conzett, Trapp and Lungwitz. None of the boys placed, but all made a favorable showing. John Feller, a newcomer, wrestled the heavyweight along with Del Schoenhard. Chuck Tallakson and Bob Kuefler handled the 155 lb. class in Nate Dodge's absence. Dick Kluckhohn wrestled in the 16 S lb. class, Chuck Ryan in the 175, while John Kanavas went through the season undefeated at 121 lbs. Bob Lungwitz and Del Casteel ably handled the 128 lb. class, while Milt Con- zett and Herb Trapp, 136 and 145 respec- tively wrestled every meet for the second consecutive year. The wrestling team finished its season with a splendid record, being the Hrst team in the history of the school to be entered in a national meet. At the close of the season letters were awarded to Kanavas, Lungwitz, Casteel, Dodge, Kluckhohn, Conzett, Trapp and Ryan. Herb Trapp was chosen by his team mates as the 1941 captain. Mgr' om' bun Inv! crqbffen 7 ck Undefeated for the second suc- cessive year is the record held by the Spartan track team. With seven lcttermen returning, together with a good Freshman squad, the team scored 269 points to its oppon- ents 113. The Spartans opened their sea- son at the Central A. A. U. and Armour Tech Relay meets in Chi- cago. jack Dieter and Bob Stoneburner were the University's entrants in these meets, which included Big Ten teams. St. Ambrose fell before Dubuque 93 to 38 in the first outdoor meet of the season. Led by Captain Bob Stoneburner and Bert Leask, the Spartans took 12 firsts. Leask set a new record in the discus of 132 ft. 4 in., and Stoneburner broke the high hurdle record of 15.5 seconds. Dubuque next toppled Upper Iowa 99 to 32 for their fifth victory in five seasons over the Peacocks. Paced by Stoneburner, Wilder. Lyerly and Dieter, who scored 16, 11 and eight points respectively, they rang up their second outdoor victory. Luther came to Dubuque undefeated and fell before the Spartans 87 2-3 to 43 1-3. The "U" took nine firsts. Bob Wilder broke Bob Jones' record of 2:06.4 with a time of 2:06.3 in the half mile. Lyerly pulled the upset of the meet by defeating Marty Soliat of Luther, Conference broad-jump champ for three years. Lyerly's jump was 22 ft. 10 in. Dubuque next travelled to Decorah, where they took a seven-team invitational meet by massing a total of 66BQ points. LaCrosse --- We- . . V V . ,A 11,55 if 5' ' 7 '-1- k!" ' fQEx,5a L 5. - A Q, . Q Teachers finished second with 4314, and Luther third with 19M4. The Spartans have held this title for two years. Led by Cap- tain Bob Stoneburner, who was high point man of the meet with victories in both hurdles and places in the high jump and pole vault, along with Lyerly, who again defeated Soliat, the Spartans scored five firsts and 18 sec- onds, third, and fourths. The Spartans entered only one man in the 440 yard hurdles in the Drake Relays due to a meet here on the same day. Finishing third in the Conference Meet, the Spartans were weakened by injuries the previous week. Karol I-Iok set a new school record in the two mile of 10:27.8. In the first annual Conference Decathlon, held in Dubuque, the University finished high. With twelve lettermen returning next year, Coach Peterson has a good season in store to augment his already fine record. 11 :qv our lmumlrml lIill!'fl'f'Il Firxl Row-McDonald, Wilder Stumbaugh, Lyerly, Arnold Stoneburner, Emery.

Wight's tennis team returned from their 1939 preseason southern tour- thoroughly tanned, a result not only of the abundant sunshine, but also of an extra coat applied by some of the strongest tennis teams of the south, where the boys who love the game live on it the year round. Although the squad failed to win any of their matches with the University of Oklahoma, Baylor, or the University of Texas there was noticeable improvement in their playing and they did succeed in tying Texas A. 8l M. in the final match of the tour. A few practices at home with careful Coaching on the Hne points of the game by Coach Wight built the team into a deter- mined, consistent group of netmen which defeated Coe College 4-2 in the first match of the season. Dubuque gained another vic- tory against Cornell College 6-1 when Con- zett and Egelhof, freshmen members of the team, won in three-set matches. After be- ing defeated by Augustana 4-2 in a close non-conference match, Dubuque won a de- cisive victory over Wartburg 6-0 in the next conference encounter. Dubuque won its re- maining conference matches with Luther 6-0, Coe 4-2, Cornell 5-1, and Wartburg 5-1 to Hnish in first place in the conference with a perfect record of six victories and no de- feats in conference competition. Peterson and Falkenhainer easily defeated all opponents in the conference tournament to gain the 1939 doubles crown. They also met each other again for the conference singles championship, the third consecutive year they have played for the singles title. For the second time in two years Peterson won the championship. Falkenhainer, being a senior, will be lost from the team, but with Peterson a veteran player still with us, and Conzett and Knautz lettermen who were undefeated in conference doubles competition also returning, the 1940 season should be successful. page our bundreil fu mfg lnterclass Basketball The sophomore class headed by Bert Leask and Sargent Wright won the interclass basket- ball tournament as the result of a special play-off series among three teams-juniors, sophs, and freshmen. The regular season ended in a three-way tie. After the play-off the sophs became the champions by defeating the juniors SS to 19, and the frosh 21 to 18. Sl- BE- 5 Outdoor Track Three new records were set and one old record tied as the sophomores won another intramural title, the outdoor track champion- ship, by scoring 44 points compared with the senior team's 34 points, the juniors, 30 points, and freshmen's 18 points. Bob Stoneburner of the junior class proved to be the meet's individual star by break- ing the intramural record in the 120-yard high hurdles and taking first places in the 220 low hurdles, the pole vault and the high jump. Elwin Davis, sophomore, set a new 440-yard dash record and Karol Hok, senior, set a new record for the two mile run. Doug McKenzie, sophomore, tied the old 220-yard dash mark. page one laumlrvzl lwrnfy-om' In tmmaral Sparta Swimming Meet The sophomore swimmers took first place in the interclass swimming meet, as they scored 35 points.
