The students who cross the cam-
pus are the foremost concern of
the University. In order to in-
crease the opportunities for the
training and development of these
students, a number of goals were
set up by President Welch when
he came to the University four
To the achievement of one of
the foremost of these goals-the
freeing of the University from debt
-we dedicate this book.

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
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,
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

Junior Class Hisfory
The Class of 1941 looks back with pleas-
ure to that auspicious day in September, 1937,
when a parade of 182 Freshmen marched upon
the threshold of their college career. 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-
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,
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.

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
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
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
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
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-
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.

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-
men's Quartette, in fact, is composed of two
Freshmen, Myrna McMahon and Margery

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

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-

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
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-

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-

Freshman Days! 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
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

Miss Anna Aitchison, and then were intro-
duced to those in the receiving line. Punch

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
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-

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

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

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
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
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
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-
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.

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
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.
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
At one o'clock a banquet was served in
the Commons. After the meal, William
Grings spoke for the students and Dr. W.

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

With "The Inevitability of Christ for the
College Student," as the theme, our annual
Spiritual Emphasis Week was led by Dr.

He spoke to us every morning during chapel

and at a Sunday morning service. Dr. Irving

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-

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.
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.

an assembly in the gymnasium, and was im-

is a short man, but from head to foot he is

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
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.

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.

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
The newly-elected Student Council, show-
ing their pep, presented a dance immediately
after mid-semester examinations, and aptly
labeled it the "Flunkers' Fling."

streamers which were meant to dispel all

comforted by them, but at least they were
pleasant to the eye.

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,
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

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
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

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

senior, and Margaret Miller of Davenport, a
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-
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.

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

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 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.

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,

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-

were some of the most successful of the year.
The council also sponsored a Conference on

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

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-

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

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-

ficient for service and leadership in the church
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

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.
The officers of the past year were: Guerney

During the 1939-40 forensic season, the
members of the University of Dubuque de-
bate squad concentrated on the pro and con
arguments of the oflicial national question:
"Resolved, that the United States should fol-
low a policy of strict economic and military
isolation from all nations outside the Western
Hemisphere engaged in armed international
or civil conflict."
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
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

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
At the beginning of the year there were
twenty Freshmen who organized the Purple

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

Answering to the need on the campus for
an organization to sponsor pep meetings and
booster parades, and to supply a well-organ-
ized cheering section at athletic events, the
U-Clan was formed. 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.

The D Club still remains one of the most
active clubs on the campus. It has a mem-
bership of thirty major "D" winners, four
honorary advisers, and a group of active
alumni. 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-
At the end of each sport season, the D
Club sponsored its annual athletic banquet
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 1939-40 year for the Delta Zeta
Chapter of the Alpha Psi Omega, National
Honorary Dramatic Fraternity, began at
Eagle Point Park, the last Sunday in May,
1939. 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

membership seven neophytes, who through
their work in dramatics had earned distinc-

Harold Stewart, Robert Stoneburner, and
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
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.

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
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
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

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.
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.

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.

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

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
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

already contributed was presented by Duane
XVilson and adopted.
The Facultette is an organization composed
of women members of the University, wives

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

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

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

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.
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
"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 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

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,
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
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.

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.

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
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
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

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

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
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.

Thirteen Club Activities
Let us start with Flunk Week, shall we?
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
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.

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

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-
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.

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.

The Spartans opened their 1939-40 basket-
ball season with a 58 to 19 victory over
Lenox. 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
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
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
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-
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
Finishing in the top division of the Con-
ference, the Spartans completed a great sea-

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.

Coach Ed. A. 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.

The sophomore class headed by Bert Leask
and Sargent Wright won the interclass basket-

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

SINCE its very beginning, in 1894, this store has always sought the best for its clientele
and has maintained a policy of satisfactory service to all.
The inward urge, each year, to make it better and of more service to the com-
munity has resulted in the upbuilding of a great retail institution-one which is
conceded as being the largest department store in Iowa. K
Diligence, perseverance and straightforwardness count equally as well in business
as in school life.
