T h e P E R I S C 0 P E ANNUAL PUBLICATION State Teachers College EAU CLAIRE, WISCONSIN VOLUME 22 1938The Theme of the 1938 Periscope is the historical backgrounds of Little Niagara Creek. When the white man first came to this region, the Chippewa Indians inhabited the valley of the Chippewa River and its upper tributaries as far south as the Eau Claire River. The .Sioux Indians lived along the Mississippi, and at times ventured up the Chippewa as far as the mouth of the Eau Claire. Because there was no recognized boundary between these two tribes, constant warfare was waged between them. To terminate this incessant struggle, the United States Government in 1825 decided that a treat)- should be negotigated to establish a definite boundary. The point determined upon was "half-a-day’s march below the falls of the Chippewa River," which is, without a doubt, the rocky bluff that is known to day as Little Niagara Bluff. Thus, because the little creek played an important part in this treaty, the Eau Claire Stare Teachers College campus is intimately associated with the early history of the Valley. To help establish this fact as one of the traditions of the college is an important purpose of this volume. Ilisliirir I'nhi|ins I The treaty establishing a boundary between the territories of the Sioux and the Chippewas may be found in United States Statutes at Large, Vol. 7, Indian Treaties, Article 5, page 273. The treaty, in part, follows: "The eastern boundary of the Sioux commences opposite the mouth of the Iowa River, runs back two or three miles to the bluffs, following the bluffs to and crossing the Bad Axe to Black River; from which point, the line described is the boundary between the Sioux and Winnebagoes; and extends in a direction nearly north to a point on the Chippewa River, half-a-day’s march from Chippewa Falls. "From this point on the Chippewa .... the line becomes the boundary between the Sioux and the Chippewas, and runs to the Red Cedar River just below the Falls; from thence to the St. Croix River at a place called the Standing Cedar, about a day’s paddle in a canoe above the lake on that river, thence passing between two lakes called by the Chippewas ’green lakes,’ and by the Sioux the 'lake they bury the eagles in’; from thence to the standing cedar that the Sioux split; and thence to the mouth of Rum River, on the Mississippi . . .” Historic Campus r ■ —— —■ - The chief cause of the Indian warfare that terminated in the boundary treaty of 1825 was the Indian claims to their respective territories. The Sioux occupied the territory south of Lake Superior, west of Lakes Huron and Michigan, south as far as the site of Milwaukee, and southwest to the Missouri. Claiming what is now known as the lower peninsula of Michigan were the Chippewas, considered by the French missionaries as the bravest, most warlike, and most manly of the tribes. About 1670, the Chippewas began their inroads upon Sioux territory in the north and east, and fought their way south and west. To the Winnebagoes the Sioux gave lands near Green Bay, probably to shield themselves from the Chippewas, but the Sacs and Fox tribe took forcible possession of this territory, compelling Winnebagoes to go west, where they, in turn, were crowded out by the Men-omonies. Such was the situation that necessitated the treaty of 1825, drawn up at Prairie du Chien and signed by Generals Williams, Clark, and Lewis Cass representing the United States, and by Wabashaw and Red Wing for the Sioux and Holc-in-the-Day for the Chippewas. Historic lampmI Our theme, this year, we believe to be especially appropriate. An unusually long Indian Summer followed the opening of the school year, bringing day after day of warm, hazy autumn weather. It is this mood that we have attempted to recreate in the 1938 Periscope. The creation of this theme presented a historical as well as an artistic problem, necessitating considerable research. The Periscope staff was surprised to find, in browsing through material on Indian lore, an unexpected similarity between the teachings and activities of the Indian and those of this college. As we arc taught in our profession, so did the native people of America learn the rudiments of their struggle for existence. Their recreation, too, embodied the same principles of sportsmanship and rivalry that we uphold today. Even more closely related are the college social organizations and those of the tribe, of which the standards and aims arc almost identical. The results of this research have been brought to you in the form of wash drawings decorating the division pages of this book. Historic Cani|ins tWhile our student-faculty relations cannot approximate those of the Indian youth and brave, we have tried to preserve that personal contact between our teachers and students which made the teachings of the Redman so effective.H.

Secretary to Mr. Brewer Geraldine Wing (Mrs.) Eau Claire Business College Junior Clerk Stenographer FACULTY I 15After twenty-two years of outstanding service as Principal of the Training School and Vice President of the Eau Claire State Teachers College, Charles J. Brewer will retire from teaching at the close of the present scholastic year. He will be succeeded by Eugene McPhce, an alumnus of this school and, since 1932, Principal of the Junior High of the Training School. Mr. McPhce holds a B. Ed. degree from the Eau Claire State Teachers College, where lie completed the four-year High School Teachers Course in 1931, and an M.A. degree in Education from the University of Minnesota, granted in 1934. He served with notable success as Superintendent of Schools at Winter, Wisconsin, from 1923 to 1930, and at Elk Mound, Wisconsin, in 1931-1932. Although a young man, Mr. McPhce is already recognized as one of the leading educators of Northwestern Wisconsin. The Periscope extends to him its best wishes for success as the Training School’s new Director.C.J. BREWER Charles J. Brewer, who will soon retire as Principal of the Training School and Vice President of the College, has taught or directed teaching for more than fifty years. All of his educational work has been done in Wisconsin. When the Eau Claire State Teachers College was established in 1916, he was selected by President Schofield to be Vice President and Principal of the Training School. Before coming to Eau Claire, he was, for five years, Superintendent of Schools at Chippewa Falls, and, prior to that, at New Richmond and Ellsworth. At one time, he was Superintendent of Schools of Pierce County. He began his professional career as teacher of a rural school near Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, his birthplace. He is a graduate of the River Falls State Teachers College, and holds a Bachelor of Education degree. In 1931, Mr. Brewer was elected President of the Wisconsin Educational Association and, since then, has been a member of the association’s Governing Board. He has also been President of the Northwestern Wisconsin Teachers Association. Few Wisconsin educators are as widely known in the state as Mr. Brewer, and none is held in higher esteem. He has been for many years an important influence in the progress of education in this state. For this contribution he will not be forgotten; for his kindly and able teacher, his sympathetic friendship, and his sterling character he will continue to be respected and affectionately remembered. On behalf of the college—its students and its faculty—the Periscope bids Mr. Brewer farewell and Godspeed. May he live long and enjoy the greater leisure his services to society merit.II I) IIII I' s As college students, our rewards are necessarily less tangible than those bestowed upon the Indian brave by his tribal council: yet these rewards represent the same attainments, the same struggles, the same triumphs that inspired the Redman.Mildred Berg H.

Anderson M. Poauctle Vandchey Amundson Brushert llmicht (Asst. Cnai-h) Front Row—William Philip (i. Poqucttc Prucher Shaver l . Korrison R. Kolstad irca»er Wriggle worth Mollaml Speckien (Tr.) The 1937 season was one of only medium success for Coach Zorn’s Blue and Golds. The team won two games, lost four, and tied one. Forty-one men reported at the begining of the season. Of this number, twenty-two were veterans from last year, and nineteen were Freshmen. In addition to the five Seniors who were graduated, approximately six of last year’s men failed to report. Most of them had dropped out of school, but one, Kenneth Omstcd, had transferred to the University of Wisconsin. The regular line-up for the St. Cloud game included two Freshmen—Rudd, at end and Brushert, at guard. The St. Cloud game was played at St. Cloud September 25. Although outplayed by quite a margin, Eau Claire was defeated by a score of only 7-6. On the first play of the game. Cooper suffered an injury to his ankle that was to hamper his play for the remainder of the season. On October 1, Eau Claire played Oshkosh, and although the Zornadoes outplayed the Oshkosh Teachers, Eau Claire managed to win by only 7-6. In the Homecoming game, October 8, the Blugolds played inspired ball to score early, and held the powerful Falcons to one touchdown, to win 7 • 6. The potent Falcon attack ripped the Eau Claire line to peiccs, and tore off gains of from five to twenty-five yards at a time, but Eau Gaire played the "breaks" and recovered several fumbles to pre- ent any further scoring. The victory proved to be the only conference win of the season for Eau Gaire. Tuesday night, October 12, Dave Korrison, cocaptain and fullback, broke his collar-bone in a practice session. The injury ended Dave’s college football career, and was a severe blow to the Eau Claire team. The following Friday, October 15, the strong Duluth Teachers team played Eau Claire. In this last non-conference game, Duluth took an early lead, and fought off a spirited second-half rally, to win 12-7. Another "head-of the lakes” team, the Superior Yellow jackets, came to Eau Claire October 23 to play the Zoradoes in their last home game. After returning the opening kick-off for a touchdown, Superior’s juggernaut rolled on to a 24-0 victory. Eau Gaire met Stout at Menomonie, October 30, and tied the Blue Devils 6 - 6. The Eau Claire play was marred by numerous fumbles and penalities. In the final game of the season, La Crosse defeated Eau Claire 13-6. The game was a nip and tuck battle until frequent injuries to Eau Gaire men gave the edge to La Crosse. F I) I) TIIIL L ts._ _________________ B 41937 Si|iia 1 Back Row Rudil Dixon Cooper llornwill Fiern Stai Mumlt Schmicdlin Solcy Dahl (Mgr.) Front Row Pnlcraon(Tr) Blanchard Knudaon Andcraon Kopplin Tomashek Quick Barkin Malm Kolstad llnirncss (Asst. Mgr.) The first few games of the year showed Coach Zorn that his running attack would have to be subordinated to a passing attack if the team was to win any ball games. While running plays had constantly bogged down, the passes of Tomashek and M. Poquette had clicked for scores or long gains in the St. Cloud, Oshkosh, and River Falls games. Concentration cn passing proved fruitful, although it did not win a conference title. Eau Claire scores in the Duluth and Stout contests came on forward passes. The Eau Claire defense looked extremely ragged in the Superior and River balls games. Gentile, Rich, and Rendler powered their way through the Eau Claire line, and, when apparently tackled, spun away for extra yardage. On pass defense, however, the Zornadocs were efficient. Eau Claire’s opponents completed only one-fourth of the passes they attempted. Harold Feirn, whose defensive play stood out during the entire season, was the only Eau Claire man to be named to a position on the all-conference first team. Hal was also a good pass receiver, although he did not make any scores after receiving passes. Three others received all-conference mention on the second team. They were Hugh Horswill, tackle, Orville Quick, guard, and Ray Schmicdlin, halfback. Horswill achieved an "iron-man stunt” during the past season by playing every minute of every game. Despite injuries which hampered him at times, smearing ball-carriers. Schmicdlin’s speed won him his honor. His returning of punts was outstanding, and his 85-yard run against La Crosse scored Eau Claire’s only touchdown of the game. Seven men will be lost to next year’s team by graduation. They are Co-captains Robert Tomashek and David Korrison, Ray Schmicdlin, Marvin Davis, Byron Blanchard, Eldon Amundson, and Louis Barkin. In spite of these losses, next year’s team should be much stronger than this year’s. Every member of the 1937 starting line will be back, along with such capable reserves as Williams, P. Anderson, Stai, and Knudson. Tomashek and Schmiedlin will be missed in the backficld, but Coach Zorn can present a very formidable starting backficld of 1937 men next fall. Morris Poquette will bear particular watching. He is a real triple-threat man, and will cause many headaches for opponents. John Mundt is another who will go places in 1938. In addition to his field generalship and kicking, he demonstrated in the Stout game that he is a good ground gainer too. Gordon Poquette, Chester Soley, and Jim Vandehey will round out a powerful backficld. After duly praising the courageous 1937 squad, we may look forward with well-justified hope toward a conference title in 1938. F (I IITIIIL LDOWN HE GOES! "Lutz” K o p p I i n is here shown tackling a Duluth hall carrier with a vengeance. Duluth scored twice early in the game, to win 12-7. A late Eau Claire rally was halted by the final gun. Orville Quick, Junior, Eau Claire—"Orv” was named to the all-conference second team at guard. His specialty was tackling opposing runners in their own back field. Ernest Williams, Freshman, Friendship—"Ernie” had little chance to strut his stuff, but he played heads-up ball when he was in the game. Howard Stai, Sophomore, Eau Claire—"Howie” showed he was a real end in the Duluth game by smashing interference, play after play. John Mundt, Sophomore, Spooner—John was a real field general, and his passing, punting, and punt returning gave him first call at quarterback. He threw two touchdown passes, one at Oshkosh and one at Stout. He also proved himself a ground-gainer in the Stout game. Jarlcy Malen, Sophomore, Owen—Jarley’s fighting spirit and solid immobility won him a regular guard position. His diagnosing of plays made him invaluable on defense. Blocking was his offensive forte. 1 I FIIIIT It IL LEAU CLAIRE, 6—ST. CLOUD, 7 The Blugold team opened the 1937 football season with a defeat at the hands of the St. Cloud Teachers in a game played at St. Cloud, September 25. The score was 7 • 6. The Eau Claire touchdown came on a forward-lateral play from Tomashek to Rudd to Schmiediin early in the third quarter. Tomashek missed the extra point. The heavier St. Cloud team outgained Eau Claire, but failed to capitalize on all its opportunities. Cooper, Feirn, and Quick were injured during the game. EAU CLAIRE. 7—OSHKOSH, 6 Eau Claire reversed the situation of the preceding week by defeating the Oshkosh Teachers 7-6 at Oshkosh September 30. Tomashek scored the touchdown in the second period on a three-yard plunge after a lateral from Rudd to Schmiediin had set the stage. Rudd converted the extra point. Oshkosh also scored in the second quarter. Oshkosh was offside, however, on the try for extra point. Twice Eau Claire touchdowns were called back, once for offside, and once because there were too few men in the line. EAU CLAIRE, 7—RIVER FALLS, 6 To climax the most successful Homecoming in many years, the Zornadoes defeated River Falls 7 - 6 in a night game at Carson Park October 8. Eau Claire capitalized on the first "break”; "Orv” Quick recovered a fumble on the River Falls 45-yard line, and after making a first down on the 28-yard line, Tomashek passed to "Chick” Kolstad for a touchdown. George Rudd dropped back from his end post and booted the game-winning extra point. The Zornmcn started playing defensive ball after taking the lead, and their defensive play was thoroughly tested by powerful Falcon backs who piled up 245 yards from scrimmage. River Falls scored its touchdown in the waning minutes of the first half on a 20-yard pass. The try for point was wide. During the second half, the defensive play of Kolstad, Morris Poquctte, and Mundt stood out. Kolstad and Poquette intercepted several Falcon passes, and Mundt at safety brought down River Falls backs after they had broken into the clear to prevent further scoring. Poquctte’s punting was another factor which held the Falcons scoreless in the second half. Hugh Horswill, Junior, Neilsville—By playing every minute of every game, Hugh won the title of "Iron-man”. He was named to a tackle post on the all-conference second team. Besides playing a good game in all departments, Hugh made a specialty of recovering opponents’ fumbles. Louis Barkin, Senior, Lodi—"Louie” played a steady game at guard, and was a dependable reserve man. He recovered a fumble to start the scoring drive at Stout. He received a shoulder injury in the Duluth game. Ray Schmiediin. Senior, Lodi—Ray played the best game of his career against La Crosse. He was selected on the all-conference second team for his speed and punt-returning ability. Harold Feirn, Junior, Neilsville — Hal was the only Zornman to be named to the all-conference first team. He earned the honor. Gordon Poquette, Sophomore, Medford—"Gordy” was a fine blocking back, and led his back field mates on many long jaunts. F (I II THU LEAU CLAIRE, 7—DULUTH, 12 In the final non-conference game of the year, a second-half Eau Claire rally fell short, and the Duluth Teachers won 12-7. The game was played at Carson Park October 15. The Eau Claire score came on the first play of the fourth period when Mundt passed to Morris Poquettc in the end zone. Rudd converted. Eau Claire a ain drove into scoring territory, only to be penalized 15 yards on a touchdown play. The final gun ended another scoring threat. EAU CLAIRE, 0—SUPERIOR, 24 Superior crushed Eau Claire 24 - 0 in the final home game of the year, October 23. Frank Paquette, Superior fullback, returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. Then Gentile scored from the one-yard line. Smith from the eleven-yard line, and Paquette from the 45-yard stripe after intercepting a pass. Only once did Eau Claire advance into Superior territory- under its own power. That late in the game, when two passes connected for the only two first downs. The running attack was stopped cold, showing a net loss of six yards. EAU CLAIRE, 6—STOUT, 6 Frequent fumbles and numerous penalties marred the play of the Zommen in the Stout Homecoming game, which ended in a 6-6 tie. The game was played October 30. Stout scored first after a fumble and three penalties had given her the ball on the half-yard line. Mil-linovich’s point try was wide. Barkin recovered a fumble on the Stout 40-yard line early in the second half, and the Eau Claire drive started. Mundt passed to Rudd for the score. Rudd’., point try was also wide. EAU CLAIRE, 6—LA CROSSE, 13 The La Crosse Indians won over Eau Claire in the final game of the season 13 -6 at I jl Crosse, November 5. La Crosse scored first early in the second quarter. Bruins converted. Eau Claire held the edge during the second half. Ray Schmiedlin, on a fake reverse, went 80 yards for a touchdown. Rudd missed the extra point. Eau Claire threatened again in the fourth period, but an attempted field goal was blocked. La Crosse took to the air to score its second touchdown late in the game. ANDERSON End II. KOI.STAD Halfback KNl'DSON Center I COOPER Center VANDEHEY Fullback Harold Cooper, Junior, Black River Falls—"Coop" was an outstanding defensive player all season, and his play against La Crosse was heroic. An ankle injury hampered his play all season. James Vandchey, Junior, Abbotsford—Jim’s speed and drive made him an offensive threat at all times. His defensive play was also dependable. Robert Anderson, Sophomore, Eau Claire—"Red" was unexcelled on the squad as a defensive end, and was also a dependable blocker. Howard Kolstad, Junior, Eau Claire—"Chick” was a running and pass-receiving threat all season despite a broken finger. He caught the touchdown pass against River Falls, and caught several Falcon passes as well, one of them with one hand, to stop a threatening rally. William Knudson, Sophomore, Rice Lake—With the injury of Cooper in the St. Cloud game, the burden of the center duties fell on Bill’s shoulders. His passing was up to average, and his tackling was vicious. FIIII! II1LLThe co-captains, Robert Tomashek (left) and David Korrison, were inspiring leaders for the 1937 team. "Toma” played determinedly at halfback all season, and "Dave”, although injured at mid-season, was behind the team all year. FOOTBALL CO-CAPTAINS Jack Brushert, Freshman, Eau Claire—Jack won a first-string guard berth through his alertness and speed. He was slightly over anxious in the Stout game, but experience will make him a man to be feared by all opponents. George Rudd, Freshman, Eau Claire—George was probably the mast versatile man on the team. He received passes, punted, kicked goals, and bucked the line from his posts at end end halfback, and did all well. Chester Soley, Freshman, Eau Claire — "Chet” drove and tackled his way into a fullback berth. His defensive play in backing up the line was a standout. Morris Poquette, Freshman, Medford—"Morry” was a real triple-threat this year, and with experience next year, there’ll be no stopping him. Luther Kopplin, Junior, Eau Claire—"Lutz” proved a worthy running mate to the "Iron-man” at tackle, despite several leg injuries during the season. IIIIITIIIL L G9Off-Tackle Smash George Rudd, No. 76, is pictured here starting to "tail” a Falcon back, who is heading for an off-tackle smash.

Anderson and Knudson "Red” Anderson (left) and "Bill” Knudson, both Sophomores, played at end and center respectively on the 1937 team. Anderson alternated with Fcim and Rudd at the starting end posts, and Knudson understudied Cooper at center. Both received letters their Freshman year.

The Event HOMECOMING The Game EAU CLAIRE vs. RIVER FALLS The Day The Time The Place FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8 8 P. M. CARSON PARK Eau Claire 7, River Falls 6 f IIIITIIIL L The Score(‘ ( I) III I II 0 Aroused from mid-semester lethargy, the student body of the college began preparations for Homecoming activities October 7 and 8 with an enthusiasm which had not been shown here for several years. Under the direction of Jame$ Riley, general chairman, subcommittees moved into action the week before. Early in the week, students began exhibiting those signs of restlessness which characterizes Homecoming. Classes became difficult as students gathered in the corridors and in various other ways "blew off” excess energy. Activities officially began with the pep assemblies under the direction of Sam Jones. On Wednesday, after the business assembly, a few minutes were devoted to yells. On Thursday, the full period was utilized. Herbert Juneau, accompanied by Verna Rath, led the student body in a community "sing.” This was followed by cheers and an exhibition of fancy baton twirling by Drum Major "Hooker” Kolstad. Solemn words were then spoken by Coach Zorn, predicting a Blue and Gold victory. The bonfire Thursday evening attracted a large number of students and alumni who heard talks by Co-Captains Korrison and Tomashek and Coach Zorn. Yells and singing constituted the rest of the program, after which the celebrants moved to the gym where the annual Homecoming dance was held. Friday’s assembly will long be remembered for Bernard Collins’ impersonation of "Tizzie Lish,” in which his costume failed to hold up under the strain of great emotion. Although parade plans, under the direction of Cleo Herrick, were started early in the week, depleted Friday afternoon classes were dismissed after the fifth period for last-minute preparation. by the college band, twenty-five blue and gold decorated cars, and nine floats formed a procession, Friday afternoon, three blocks long, which paraded through the business district of Eau Claire. The parade was seen, and evidently enjoyed, by a large number of people who crowded the sidewalks. Friday night found in attendance at Carson Park Stadium a record crowd, including a large group of alumni. Although handicapped by sports commentators who conceded a River Falls victory, the Eau Claire team showed a stubborn defense that kept the crowd on its feet. Eau Claire’s scoring opportunity presented itself in the first period when Quick recovered a fumble on the Eau Claire 45-yard line. After a march to the twenty-eight, Tomashek passed to Kolstad who maneuvered the Falcon defense out of position and crossed the goal line with little difficulty. The converted point, which ultimately spelled victory for Eau Claire, was kicked by Rudd. The River Falls touchdown was made in the second period with yardage gained by passing and line plays. A completed pass on Eau Claire’s six-yard line presented an opportunity to tie the score, but the Falcons failed to convert. The Blue and Gold line felt the necessity of close defensive playing in the second half, when the Falcon line began to show the advantage of its weight. During the fourth period, River Falls took to the air, but the secondary defense, led by Kolstad and M. Poquctre, intercepted three Falcon passes at critical moments to prevent further scoring.

The Zornadoes won the 1938 Northern Conference championship for the first time in the history of the school, winning eight straight conference games. They lost only two games during the entire season, and won fifteen. Ten veterans reported for practice last Fall. They were Kolstad, Pederson, Fcirn, Moore, Tomashek, Lehman. Carroll, Hogness, Hovcy, and Larson. Wriggles-worth, who was out last season with a broken leg, also reported. Of the five Freshmen who came out, three remained on the squad throughout the season. They were Krenz, Ash. and Stephens. With an attack centered around the sharpshooting Pederson, the passing of Kolstad, and the rebound play of Lehman, and a defense headed by Hogncss and Larson, the Zornmcn opened the season with a smashing 58 - 29 defeat of Concordia of St. Paul. The score was an indication of the high scoring to be expected from the team which was to score an average of 45 points a game for the season. Their scores ranged from a low of 23 against St. Mary’s to a high of 70 against the Alumni. On the other hand, Eau Claire opponents scored an average of 32 points a game. l-a Crosse made the highest number of points, 46; St. Mary’s 21 was low for the opponents. The widest margin of victory was 37 points against the Alumni, and the narrowest was one point against Luther. Neither defeat suffered was overwhelming. The scores were 40- 33 and 42 - 39. Included on the list of Eau Claire victims were Macalcster College, defending champion of the Minnesota college conference, and Luther College, defending champion of Iowa. The Zornmen also broke the undefeated record of the Concordia "Cobbers” from Moore-head. More than eight hundred high school athletes were the guests of the college at the Ripon game January’ 17. They represented more than forty high schools of northwestern Wisconsin. The captain of each team was introduced between the halves of the game, which Eau Claire won 37-24. "Trig” Pederson was ineligible for the first three conference games, but his place was well filled by Krenz and Moore. The withdrawal of Feim from school cut the squad to thirteen men. As soon as Pederson became eligible at the start of the second semester, Kolstad was declared ineligible because of an incomplete. Fiowever, by hard work, he cleared the incomplete and missed only one game. Conference Gamfs E. C.

The Blugolds held the upper hand in all their games, and when opponents made despairing attempts to rush the play, they struck swiftly for two points. At Superior, observers considered the Eau Claire passing attack the best seen at the head of the lakes in several seasons. This superb passing helped the Eau Claire offense in both the fast and the slow break. Coach Zorn mixed the two to bewilder the opposition. In practically every game, the defense of the Eau Claire opponents was so confused that valuable points were scored on them before they could get their bearings. The La Crosse game at Eau Claire was an excellent example of the fighting spirit of the Zornmen. La Crosse jumped into a 94) lead before the Eau Claire players could score a point, yet they fought back to win the game, 63-46. The versatility of the Eau Claire attack is best attested by the final game of the season with Superior. The Yellowjackets confronted the team with an efficient zone defense. The team met it with accurate long shots, mixed in with sure ball handling, which controlled the ball a major share of the time. Northern Conference standings W L Pet.

He was among the scoring leaders of the conference, and in the seventeen games played during the season, he scored 202 points. On defense, he used his six-feet-six to good advantage, and probably blocked more shots than any other man in the conference. "Trig” Pederson’s push shot was one of the most deadly offensive weapons of the conference. He went on a scoring rampage in his first conference game against River Falls, and scored 24 points. He continued his torrid pace throughout the remainder of the season, to pile up a total of 139 points in 13 games. '"Chick” Kolstad’s steady passing, Don Moore’s sharpshooting, "Deacon” Krenz’s accuracy, and the impenetrable defensive play of Wayne Larson and "Streaky” Hogness were salient features of a great season. Three men, Don Moore, Al Hovey, and Bob Tomashek, will be lost to the team next year through graduation. Moore played three years of varsity basketball, Tomashek, four, and Hovey, three. The attendance at the home games during the season was particularly pleasing. Capacity crowds attended the Ripon, La Crosse, and Superior games played at the high school gym. A large share of the credit for the success of the team is given to"Toughy,”thc team’s mascot ."Toughy” is a black cat whose greatest shortcoming was his love of seclusion. He had exclusive quarters in the prop room. He lost himself at Dccorah, Iowa, and came home in a box several days later. P I) IIT It I LEau Claire opened it5 conference play at I.a Crosse January 14, and won 41-33. Lehman and Carroll were both lost on fouls. Lehman made 14 points to lead the Eau Claire scorers. January 18 the Zornmen met the Yellowjackcts at Superior, and won 42-33. Superior was forced to rely on long shots, while Eau Claire, led by Lehman and Krcnz with 14 points apiece, worked in close for sure shots. The Stout Blue Devils were easy victims of the Zomadoes at Mcnomonie January 21. The score was 46-30. Every member of the squad saw action. Eau Claire took undisputed possession of first place in the northern division February 4 when she defeated the Falcons 45-30 at the high school gym. In his first conference game, "Trig” Pederson scored 17 points. The Blugolds downed the La Crosse Indians in a free-scoring contest February 10 by a score of 63-46. La Crosse held a 9-0 lead during the opening minutes of the game. Eau Claire crushed Stout 56-30 at Eau Claire February 18, in the game which saw Coach Zorn use every one of his squad. The Zornmen clinched the northern division championship by beating River Falls 55-40 at River Falls February 22. Lehman, Kolstad, and Pederson were outstanding for Eau Claire. The Zornadocs completed an undefeated conference season by defeating Superior 37-30 February 26. After starting on even terms, Eau Claire built up a 20-13 lead at the half, and maintained it throughout the game. HOGNESS Guard HOVEY CARROLL Gunn! Center MOORE Forward Jack Hogncss, Shell Dike, Sophomore—Steady, dependable defensive player, Jack sunk the basket that beat Luther. He was a starter at guard. Al Hovey, Tomah, Senior—Al offset his lack of speed with his ability to handle rebounds. His passing was also a valuable asset. George Carroll, Durand, Junior—"Mike” proved himself a worthy understudy to Lehman at center. Rebounds and tip-ins were his specialty. Don Moore, Durand. Senior—Don played the best ball of his career this year, and his height, speed, and sharpshooting were important cogs in the Zorn machine. Walter Lehman, Eau Claire, Sophomore—"Dodo” led the team in scoring, was a bulwark on defense, and was chosen all-conference center.

Wayne Larson, Eau Claire, Sophomore—Always a sterling defensive player, "Lars” acquired offensive accuracy and drive, to become more useful than ever. James Stephens, Elmwood, Freshman — "Steve” played very little this year, but he showed speed and drive that will make him valuable next year. ummimNonpointers The Nonpointers broke a precedent this year by winning one ball game.

Activity in forensics other than debate met with a considerable degree of success this year. Not only were there contests in each of seven fields but also a great demand for members of the various speech activities to appear on public programs. The first contest was one in extempore speaking for young men and young women held here January 18. The young men spoke on "The Neutrality Policy of the United States”, and the young women on '’Careers for Twentieth Century Women”. The wo winners were Clco Herrick and Lillian Svengaard. An invitational speech tournament was held at the college February 19. Eau Claire speakers won first place. The college was represented by Donald Paffel, Dorothy Biesterveld, Marion Robarge, Cleo Herrick, Lillian Svengaard, and Vernon Ramberg. They were chosen in contests conducted February 10 and 11 at the college. Three out of seven firsts were won by Eau Claire, by Marion Roberge; and in extempore speaking for young men, by Cleo Herrick.

The question argued was, "Resolved, that the National Labor Relations Board should be empowered to enforce arbitration of ail industrial disputes.” Teams were entered in six tournaments and also engaged in a number of practice debates with other colleges. In preparation for the season, approximately eight Eau Claire teams took part in a non-decision tournament at Stevens Point December 11. Another preliminary tournament was held there January 8, at which six Eau Claire teams were contestants. Eau Claire won third place. Eau Claire acted as host to nine colleges at its invitational debate tournament January 22. Eau Claire entered four teams, and tied for first in the "A” division. The Betz-Chickering and the Holtz-Ockcrlandcr teams were the Eau Claire class "A” competitors. The Herrick-Fisher and the Svcngaard-Bcrg teams were entered in the "B" division. The Bctz-Chickering and the Svengaard-Berg teams represented Eau Claire at the Red River Valley tournament at Moorhead, Minnesota, February 4 and 5.

Eau Claire Speakers This group includes the speakers, during the year, who gave programs on request before various audiences at parent-teacher meetings, church gatherings, and private homes. Several spoke over the radio. The kinds of speech activity engaged in were humorous and serious declamations, orations, oratorical declamations, and extempore speaking. This was a most popular activity of the Speech Association this year.

Mildred Berg and Lillian Svengaard represented Eau Gairc at St. Catherine’s. Mr. Donaldson, debate coach, accompanied them. 88 forensicsOutcome Satisfactory It seems apparent from Mr. Donaldson’s look that returns from the debate tourney held here January 22 were not satisfactory. But seemingly with a less pessimistic point of view are Lillian Sven-gaard and Mildred Berg, the only women’s team representatives from this college. Dr. Davenport’s look assures us the tournament was a success. Carleton College Carlcton College was one of the nine colleges represented at the tourney held here January 22. Carleton ranked first in Class A competition. Pictured here are the Carleton debaters and their coach. They arc Ernie Ulm, Jesse Buckhead, Prof. I. M. Cochrane, coach. Bob Genu, and John Roberts.

This play involves a happy wedded couple, Mr. and Mrs. White, who have been married for eight long years. Difficulties are caused by a divorce announcement in the newspaper and also by a very meddlesome mother-in-law whose main purpose is to break up the marriage. All ends happily however at the entrance of the other George White, who was really getting the divorce. The roles of the couple, Margaret White and George White, were played by Myrec Waters and George Jenks; that of the other client, another George White, by Donald Paffcl; and of the mother-in-law, Mrs. Baker, by Constance Sample. This play was presented at several rural school Parent Teachers’ Association meetings. The play was received very well, judging from the reaction of the audiences. Wanted, A Wife A desire for a housekeeper and the decision that a wife is the cheapest kind of housekeeper makes "Wanted, A Wife” amusing. The middle-aged crank who wanted a wife was played by Tom Joas. Those who applied for the job were a flapper, played by Bettie Scobie; a cranky old maid, by Mary Wright; a negress, by Ruth Cooke; and a sweet elderly lady, by Dorothy Dodge. Mary Wright directed the play. Spring Fever On November 17, Strut and Fret presented a three-act-farce, "Spring Fever” in the college auditorium. This play is one of Glen Hughes’ well known dramas. The play was one of the best attended productions ever put on by Strut and Fret. The scene of the action centers in Commencement Day at Brookfield College. The effort of the school to win back its rapidly disappearing endowment is the theme of the plot. Because of a late term paper, many difficulties resulted. Aunt Maude fell in love with the professor of zoology, and he also became interested in her. Mr. Purcell, Anne’s father, had been thinking of endowing the college, but soon changed his mind. On arriving at the college on Commencement Day, he was treated by the students as an artist’s model (they not knowing he was Anne’s father) whom they were expecting. Mr. Purcell imediately became angry, and decided not to give the college the endowment. Through Anne's acting as if she were very ill, the complicated situation was worked out with a very happy ending. The members of the cast were Howard Brant, a Senior at Brookfield College, played by William Spratt; Ed Burns, a chemistry student, played by Arthur Pad-rutt; Vic Lewis, an art student, played by Bernard Collins; Lou Hcrgon, a journalism student, played by Mildred Berg; Mrs. Spangler, the landlady, played by Mary Wright; Anne Purcell, the seniors’ "heart interest”, played by Dorothy Biestervcld; Vivian George, the art students’ "heart interest”, played by Lillian Svengaard; Mr. Purcell, the rich manufacturer and father of Anne, played by Tom Joas; Mrs. Purcell, the mother of Anne, played by Bettie Scobie; Aunt Maude, Howard’s spinster aunt, played by Nancy North; Professor Bean of the Zoology department, played by Don Pratt; and Doctor Dixon, the president of the college, played by Tom Jennings. The success of "Spring Fever” was attributed in part to its being a play about college students played by college students. II It 1M 90 A TICSLeft to Right—Betz, l-ar-ton.

SENIOR PLAY CAST SECOND SEMESTER PLAYS Strut and Fret activities for the second semester included the Senior class play, "Polishing Papa” and three one-act plays presented April 6 on what was termed "Drama Night”. I Am A Jew Virginia Allen directed "I Am A Jew”, which deals with the Jewish situation in Germany. Dr. Davenport of the faculty is the author. The play, which was awarded first place at the Pasadena Play House, California, has been presented, it is said, in every state in the United States. The cast this year included Kat-rim, played by Florence Izdepski; Mima, by Betty Scobic; Professor Joseph Steiner, by Clco Herrick; and the Chancellor, by Donald Paffel. The Burning Bush "The Burning Bush”, a one-act folk drama, was written by Clarice Chase, a former student of the Eau Claire Teachers College. It won second place in the national play writing contest held at Cape Giradeau, Missouri, last year. Deborah Linton, played by Geraldine Bock, was a gaunt religious fanatic, who has succumbed to the harangues of an itinerant preacher, sets the tone of the play. Lawrence Cook played the part of Henry Linton, the husband who wavered between the dominating personality of his wife and his lack of religious conviction. Myra, the daughter, played by Marion Roberge, is also involved in the situation. Mary Wright directed the play. Sky River Drive "Sky River Drive” was also written by Dr. Davenport. The play, a tragedy, concerns the Paul Bunyan story of the "blue snow”. The people of the town become very much antagonized by Mr. Hansen’s constant talking of Paul Bunyan, but somehow their love for him is greater than their objection to this one fault of his. The curtain falls on a scene in which "Mr. Hansen" meets Paul Bunyan. and they follow him out of the house to "Sky River Drive”, which means that death overcomes him. The cast included Timothy Jennings as Paul Bunyan; Arthur Padrutt as Mr. Hansen, the grandfather; Connie Sample as Tessie; Mary McCarthy as Anna, Tessie’s daughter; and Don Pratt as Harvey or Anna’s sweetheart. Polishing Papa "Polishing Papa”, the Senior class play, was presented May 18. This is a domestic comedy in three acts with its setting in a small town in the Middle West. The plot of the play develops out of the efforts of two college graduates, Jane Smith and Arthur Smith, to make over their father, Sidney Smith, who is a generous but crude business man. Their concern is with their father’s English, clothes, and his crude habits in general. At the same time that these college graduates were reforming their father, they learned the value of hard work. The cast included Rosemary Korgcr as Mrs. Stevens, the housekeeper for Sidney Smith; Helen Keller as Marie, the maid; Bowman Larson as Sidney Smith, a rich sausage manufacturer; Frank Masterjohn as Samuel Karmen, an advertising solicitor; Arthur Smith, as Jack Menard, who is eager to invest his dad’s money; Mildred Berg as Jane Smith, Arthur’s sister, also possessed of illusions; Vernon Ramberg as Dick Brainerd, a young attorney; Dorothy Biesterveld as Rose Parker, with whom Arthur is in love; Frank Betz as Reginald Dabney, an English lord; and Lillian Svengaard as Peggy Sampson, a friend of the Smiths. IIII1IIA TICS 91Spring Fever Here is pictured a torrid form of "spring fever” manifesting itself in the Strut and Fret production of the same name. Dorothy B;esterveld and Bill Spratt are revealed fervently entering into the spirit of the play; in fact, they arc occupying a fragment of the divan with considerable realism. Co-ed Pulchritude These living examples of pulchritude, Mildred Berg and Dorothy Biestcrveldt, played tthc feminine leads in "Spring Fever”—the leading dramatic production of the first semester at Eau Claire Teachers’ College. A comedy of college life, this play scored a new high in Strut and Fret triumphs. Play Rehearsal Deeply absorbed here in the script of "Spring Fever” is part of the cast and its director. No doubt, "Doc” is advising his players as to the interpretation of some telling phrase or line. Pictures are, (left to right) Nancy North, Betty Scobic, Mary Wright, Dorothy Beistcrvcld, Dr. Davenport and Bernard Collins. Let’s Honeymoon Again "Let’s Honeymoon Again" was the title of a one-act play, a diverting story of a mistaken identity and the resulting complications. Directed by Florence Izdepski, the cast included Connie Sample, Myree Waters, George Jenks, and Don Paffel. V 1 J IIIIIIIIT11'SI I The Burning Bush "The Burning Bush” a onc-act play written by a former student, here, Clarice Chase, was one of the onc-act plays presented by the Strut and Fret this Spring. [ Lawrence Cook, Mary Wright, (director) Marion Roberge, and Geraldine Bock were the cast. This play won second place last year in a contest at Cape Girideau, Missouri. I I Am A Jew "I Am A Jew”, written by Dr. Davenport of the faculty, was awarded first place at the Pasadena Play House, California. This play was directed at Eau Claire Teachers College this year, by Virginia Allen. The players were Geo Herrick, Virginia Allen (director), Bettic Scobic, Florence Izdepski, and Donald Paffcl. The play is based on Hitler’s persecution of the Jews. Sky River Drive "Sky River Drive", was also written by Dr. Davenport and concerns the Paul Bun-yan story of the winter of the "blue snow”. Those participating in the production were, back row, Timothy Jennings, Arthur Pad-rutt; front row, Mary McCarthy, Robert Tweet, Connie Sample, Don Pratt, and Lillian Svengaard (director). Carol From thf Skies "Carol From the Skies”, the Christmas dramatic cantata presented by the A Capel-la Choir, was presented at night this year. It proved very successful. Doris Litchfield, center, was the Virgin Mary, Jane Mc-Auley, left, and Jerric Rolland were the angels guarding the crib. II It 1IIA TICSr Top Row—I- OUon. Kir-ucher, (', Anderson. Nitpel, E.

The broadcasts put on by the Strut and Fret were directed by Dr. Davenport. Soloist Harold Korgcr charmed many WEAU listeners when he played a flute solo for them. He has appeared a number of times before the assembly, also. Salute The second radio skit given by the Strut and Fret was the "Salute to Durand". Those shown here took part in the skit, written by Dr. Davenport. Florence Izdep-ski, Arthur Padrutt, and Nancy North, to judge from the picture, seem to enjoy broadcasting. 2 Durand B. Spratt, H. Juneau, Dr. Davenport and T. Jennings also took part in putting on "Salute to Durand.” The skit was the result of research by Dr. Davenport and was well presented. Technician Jorgerson was the "man behind the scenes." He is the one who was responsible, to a large extent, for the success of the programs. He is pictured here at the controls of WEAU. 100 It It IIAII I' ANTI A liImpresario Broadcasting has become a feature of the Speech and the Music Departments of the college. Each Monday morning a program is broadcast from the college auditorium over station WEAU. Dr. Davenport, of the faculty, is pictured here announcing the day’s program. Spooner The Dramatics Department devoted several of its broadcasts to dramatizing the history of the towns in the vicinity of Eau Claire. Dr. Davenport wrote the history of Spooner, which Winifred Lund, Deste Boehrer, Donald Paffcl and Don Pratt presented. Chippewa Thomas Jennings, Florence Izdcpski, Arthur Padrutt, William Spratt and Nancy North are shown at the right as they paid tribute to Chippewa Falls in one of the broadcasts of town histories. Trumpet Geraldine Bock is shown displaying her talents on the trumpet during a recent musical broadcast.

At least once a month this year the band has presented concerts to the student body. i: is i) i ii r asti v i; 101Strut and Fret Dance College Gym September 23 Faculty All School Party The social life of the college this year began with the faculty all-school party, held September 23 on the college gymnasium. An innovation at this party was the fact that it was held in the afternoon so that students from out of town would be able to attend. Dancing was to the music of Ted Erickson’s orchestra. Men’s Smoker The Dc Chatillons began a successful social season this year with their annual men’s "smoker”, held September 22. The "smoker” was held so that the young men could more readily become acquainted with each other. Get Acquainted Party This year the Y. W. C. A. again began its activities by sponsoring the girls’ party, held September 15 in the gymnasium. Games of many types were played, but all with the same end in view, to acquaint the girls with one another. The upper class women saw to it that the Freshmen girls were made welcome to the college. Refreshments were served. Primary Club’s Party An evening of games was enjoyed by those members of the Primary Club who attended the supper held in the Girls’ Rest Room September 21. As a treat, French pastries were served. W. A. A. Initiation The Women’s Athletic Association chose September 30 as the date on which to initiate its new members. The initiation was held in the gymnasium after college hours so that all new members could be present. The costumes worn by the incoming W. A. A. members were reminiscent of those sometimes worn on a Saturday morning, when one is too often caught unexpectedly by a visitor. The next day the entire school enjoyed the initiation stunts of the new members. Amphictyon Tea Freshmen girls were entertained at a tea September 30 in the Girls’ Rest Room by the Amphictyons. The club attempted to acquaint the girls with the different organizations in school, by asking each organization to have a representative present to address the girls. Rural Life Party On September 30 the Rural Life Club held its first party of the college year in the gymnasium. Games were played during the first part of the evening. Later, there was dancing. Refreshments were served. 102 son A L LIFEHallowe’en Dance College Gym October 28 Wiener Roast The members of Strut and Fret held a wiener roast for their first meeting of the school year on the evening of October 5. A treasure hunt, which began at the school and ended at the place where the wiener roast was held, was the piece de resistance of the evening. Men’s "Mixer” On October 6, DeChatillon held a "mixer” for all the boys of the school. Each young man introduced himself to the next until all the names had been given. After an evening spent in playing games, the young men were quite well acquainted with one another. All-School Dance Strut and Fret held an all-school dance October 18 in the college gymnasium. Blue and gold streamers made an attractive decoration as they swung back and forth overhead. Y. W. C. A. Coffee On October 20 the Y. W. C. A. served coffee and doughnuts to all the boys in school. As no objec- tions from the boys have yet been received, the girls contemplate serving coffee each year to the male students of the college. Treasure Hunt A successful social season was begun by the Grammar Club when its members held a meeting in the Girls’ Rest Room October 21. A treasure hunt was conducted. The treasure was discovered in Dr. Davenport's office. Light refreshments were served during the evening. Hallowe’en Party The Hallowe’en party this year was a dance sponsored by the A Cappella Choir October 20. In a setting of witches, cornstalks, cats, and broomsticks the students enjoyed an evening of dancing. Chili Supper Again on October 27 Buri’s Bakery, a faverite meeting place of the clubs, was the meeting place of the Primary Club. A chili supper was the chief event of this occasion. After supper, the members were entertained by group singing—everybody's favorite ditty was tried. social LIFE 103Christmas Party College Gym December 14 Hostess Tea On November 4 the Y. W. C. A. held its annua! Hostess Tea to which all the girls in school are invited to bring their mothers or house mothers. The tea, beginning at three, continued throughout the afternoon. While the girls and their mothers were enjoying their tea they listened to piano selections played by Connie Sample, Jeanette Hilger, and Helen Haanstad, students here. Grammar Club Supper The Grammar Club held a meeting at Buri’s Bakery November 18, where they enjoyed a chili supper. Mrs. Thompson, first assistant librarian, gave some excellent book reviews of the new books in the college library. Veronica Heck entertained with a humorous reading. Thanksgiving Dance The Crusaders were hosts, November 23, to the student body at a Thanksgiving dance. An added attraction was the selling of tickets on some fowls. It seems that those who were lucky enough to win a duck, a goose, or a turkey just for the buying of a ticket, didn’t know what to do with the prizes. W. A. A. Dance The W. A. A. held an all-school dance November 9 in the college gym. Streamers of many colors hung above the heads of the dancers as well as around the edge of the dance floor. An enjoyable evening was spent. Christmas Parties The Grammar Club held its annual Christmas dinner December 13 in the college cafeteria. All members of the faculty were invited to enjoy the supper as well as the program. Strut and Fret held its Christmas dinner in the college cafeteria on December 7. The table decorations of green and red were very fitting for the sea son. The Y. W. C. A. held its Christmas supper meeting on December 14 in the college cafeteria. Mrs. Fred Thomas of Eau Claire, who was the guest speaker, entertained the Y. W. C. A. members with her reviews of several recent books. The Christmas party held December 14 at which Amphictyons and Dc Chatillons were hostesses and hosts, was a great success. The gym was a beautiful sight with its gay Yuletidc "trimmings.” The Christmas idea was further carried out by an added embellishment, a large blue star suspended from the ceiling. There were also gaily decorated Christmas trees. This dance fulfilled the statement that next to the Prom it was the most important dance of the college year. 104 SIInAL LIFEMother-Daughter Banquet Christ Church March 24 Girls' Prom On February 12, the Y. W. C. A. held its annual Girls’ Prom in the college gymnasium. One girl of each couple was dressed as a boy for the evening and escorted the other girl to the dance. The gymnasium was gaily decorated with colored streamers. The evening was spent in dancing. Tanglefete This year the Dc Chatillons on February 17 again reached the climax of their year’s social activities by presenting another "Tanglefete”. The success of the venture in former years was repeated this year. The new feature of this year’s performance was the fact that a few girls took part. The high spot of the evening was the crowning of Alice Wilk as Queen. Bowman Larson’s artistic ability was well demonstrated by his drawing of a vase. Carnival Although the A Cappella Choir sponsored the carnival, held February 24, most of the clubs of the college had booths. The jitney dance attracted the attention of many students. Others spent their time among the booths, demonstrating their skill at bingo, throwing balls, and amusing themselves in other ways characteristic of carnival crowds. St. Patrick’s Day Dance The Band held a St. Patrick’s Day dance for the student body on March 17. The gymnasium was decorated with green streamers, and the young women wore green ribons, green bows, or green dresses. The students enjoyed an evening of dancing to the music of Gene Kay’s Orchestra. Speech Association A dance and card party in the upper corridor was held by the Speech Association March 23. During the evening, Seniors were chosen to represent the Speech Association in programs to be presented in surrounding towns. The orchestra providing the dance music for the party was made up of members of the Speech Association. Mother-Daughter Banquet This year the Mother-Daughter Banquet was held at Christ Church, Eau Claire, on March 24. This year the organization invited all Senior girls. The tables were gaily decorated. The nut cups for the dinner were unusual in that they were little gold bags tied at the top with a gold string. An excellent program was arranged for the evening. Jane Milliren welcomed the mothers; Mrs. R. W. Scobie responded in behalf of the mothers; Veronica Heck and Alberta Carlson completed the program of talks. Musical selections included two piano solos by Mrs. Zorn and two vocal solos by Jane Jones. IH LIFE 105THE STUDENT'S TIP Prom Committee The 1938 Junior Prom preparations got under way early with the selection of the Central Prom Committee (left) composed of Lorraine Bement, Cleo Herrick, Bob Tweet, Hugh Horswill, James Riley, George Carroll, Harriet Babington, Clarence Patten, Jeanne Johnson, and Mr. Milliren, faculty advisor. Prom Election With the nomination of Thomas Jennings, Frank Wrigglesworth, and George Carroll as candidates for Prom King, interest in the year’s outstanding social event heightened, ending in a highly competitive election. Such slogans as "Tippy Tippy Tim”, "The Carrolls Are Coming”, and "Wiggle with Wrigglesworth” were in full cry when the Periscope photographer, in compiling a pictorial story of the Prom, snapped these pictures. Election Committee The election, supervised by the Junior Election Committee under the supervision of Class Advisor Milliren, drew the largest vote of any election in the school’s history. When the ballots were counted, Carroll was King with 236 votes, Jennings having polled 170 and Wrigglesworth 21. At the time these pictures were taken, Wrigglesworth was not to be found. Anxious Days Upon Carroll, then, was the task of selecting a Queen. As the days passed, he was seen to have an increasingly furrowed brow. After having narrowed the field down to a dozen eligible college young women, Carroll solved his problem with the happy selection of Rosalie Kjentvet as Queen of the 1938 Prom. Still Friends Seldom in the school’s history has personal animus been more lacking than in this year’s election. Carroll and Jennings, shown at the left, are here shown defending their respective merits during the morning’s heavy balloting. .1U I IIIII l IIIIIIQueen Prepares The eve of the Prom finds the 1938 Queen engaged in those strictly feminine preparations which arc to lend perfection to an ensemble early chosen in anticipation of the event. Miss Kjentvet, petite, gay, and an excellent dancer, carries well the recognition bestowed upon her. Knotty Problem No less careful is the sartorial preparation of Prom King Carroll, who is shown here wrestling with man’s most knotty problem. A six-footer, lean and athletic, admired by the men and women alike of the college, Carroll appears poised and well-groomed. Auditorium Bound Miss Kjentvet, wearing an evening gown of white chiffon modeled on Grecian lines, is escorted to the city auditorium by Car-roll, who, from all appearances, is a little startled by the glare of flash bulbs poked in the window of the car. They Arrive Many incidents connected with the Prom will long be remembered by the King and Queen the excitement of preparation, the admiring glances, the deference accorded them. The Farbwbll The last dance is finished—the crowd disperses. The anticipation has been realized; and in the early hours of the morning, the Prom King takes leave of his Queen. The Periscope candid camera caught, appropriately enough, only this soft-focus snap of the conclusion of the 1938 Prom. j i i i) ii r ii ii ii 107Campus Lagoon Students arriving at school in late September found that Little Niagara Creek had been "dressed up” during the summer. Her wild nature was brought under control, her course changed, and her banks spanned by the new bridge seen in the foreground. Freshmbn Officers The week preceding Homecoming was enlivened by the Freshmen Class election. The officers had charge of the Homecoming bonfire. The officers arc shown at the left: Norman Krenz, Business Manager; John Johnson, Treasurer; Jane Milliren, Secretary; Beatrice Shaw, Vice-President; James McDermid. President. .,,8 r11iiiii mim New Roof Classes last Fall were often interrupted by the pounding of these W. P. A. workers who were busy applying a new roof to the college building. W. A. A. Board These young ladies constitute the W. A. A. Advisory Board. They are, back row, Jones. White, Miss Royce, Patrick, D. Johnson, Olson, Nelson, J. Johnson; front row, Rath, Rowley, Gabus, Lass, Edington, D. Anderson. They don’t seem to mind the breeze’s blowing their hair. js Strollers Because the balcony was kept locked, before Christmas, many students had to go elsewhere to visit between classes. Here we see Mary McCarthy and John Mundr " ' c - on the India Costume On November 2, the student body was entertained by Miss Sydna White, who has studied in India, and who presented a varied program of Indian music. She enlivened her talk by several changes of native Indian costumes. European Theme Here is shown Miss Helen Hictt as she posed for the staff photographer on November 9. Miss Hictt, having observed conditions abroad, lectured on the people of Europe, particularly those of Italy, Germany, and Russia. Dead Communicate? "Can the Dead Communicate With the Living" was the subject of Dr. Howard Higgcns’s lecture on November 16. Dr. Higgens, a professor of psychology in an eastern college, performed, with the aid of several students, experiments in telepathy. Spring Dance One of the new members of the Dc Chatillon Club was "Miss” Earl Paape, shown here as he demonstrated the "Spring Dance” in a "fairy-like” manner at the initiation ceremonies of the club. Initiates Parade Other De Chatillon neophytes who appeared before the college assembly as part of an initiation were Art Padrutt, James Patten, Wayne Larson, Trig Pederson, Marshall Barnes, and Glen Hansen.

She read scenes from Hamlet, The Taming of the Shrew, and other plays. Country Life The American Country Life Association held its annual convention October 12 to 14 at Manhattan, Kansas. Delegates from the Rural Life Club of the college were Bruce Peterson, Harry Peterson, and Marion Palms. Lorraine Butterbrodt, also a delegate from Eau Claire, is not shown in the picture. Faculty Hostesses Miss Thomas and Miss Oxby of the faculty, are shown here with Miss Eva Tar-bell, President of the Department of Classroom Teachers of the National Educational Association. She stopped in Eau Claire between the conventions of the Wisconsin Educational Association and the Minnesota Educational Association. Animal Circus On October 12, the students of the College and the Training School were entertained by the Bible Animal Circus. Th-circus consisted of acts by a group of well-trained ponies, monkeys, and dogs. Y. W. Cabinet Members of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet are shown here as they posed for the staff photographer on the campus. In the picture are, top row, Alberta Carlson, Evelyn Kacding, Jeanette Hilgcr, Ruth Cooke, Mary Jane Lcincnkugel, Edith Broetzman, and Bettie Scobie; bottom row. Elizabeth Rowley, Dorothy Dodge, Pearl Blodgett, Mary Wright, Dorothy Neumann, and Betty Johnson. I r A l IIIII (' AII A! It AGrads Back This looks like old-grad week on our fair campus. Jane Anderson, ’37, formerly of Colfax and now the English teacher in the Bruce High School, visited the college one day. Looks as if she doesn’t believe in signs. Former Editors Here 3re former members of the editorial staff of the Periscope: Clarice Chase, who brought honor to the school last year by winning second place in a nation-wide play-writing contest; and, around the corner, Marge O’Malley, ’32, and Florence Izdcpski, both former Periscope editors, cast critical eyes on our latest edition. Luhm Sisters Campus life wouldn’t be complete without a representative of the W. A. A. somewhere in the picture. Lucille and Rose Luhm, both ’37, proudly display their athletic awards. Lucille is now librarian and girls’ athletic director at Carlcton. Minnesota, and Rose is attending college here again this year. Campus Visitors At first glance this oicturc might be labeled "A Big, Happy Family,” but on closer observation one sees that the group is really practice teachers and pupils. Pat Held and Charlotte House, who were visit-' ing here at th'S time, were practice teachers last year. Bill Spratt is a Junior in the college now, and Jane Lou Hoag is a sixth grader in the Training School. CANDID I'AM KMCanine Visitor While one of the numerous canine visitors of the school was exploring the fan room, the staff photographer got this captivating "shot.” Leisure Moments The candid camera caught Eleanor Anderson, Doris Litchfield, Florence I depski, and Jane McAuley during one of their leisure moments at the candy table in the hall. Friendly Chat Here is a glimpse of a friendly chat in the Girls’ Rest Room. Those participating are Margaret McGillivray, Pat North, Edith Broctzman, Althea Siagg, Jane Mil-iren, and Janice Duxbury. Jeanette Hilger The Collegiate Digest is not the only publication that can boast of its good looking women. The landing with the large windows in the background proved to be an excellent setting for this silhouette of Jeanette Hilger. Svbtlik Helped The all-seeing photographer, the Geography Room, a bed improvised from two chairs, peaceful repose, and Charles Svetlik made this picture possible. i'i i ii i ii r i ii it iMiss Davenport Miss Rosalyn Gay Davenport, who made her advent on this terrestial sphere a little more than a year ago, has already developed that "come hither” look which is the detriment of all camera-men, ours not excepted. Adequately protected by parental support, the young lady eagerly greets the world and all it has to offer. Big Family This picture might easily be the reverse of the Old Woman in the Shoe, but Bob Martin seems happy with his newly acquired "family”, which consists of Babcttc Lasker, Josephine Horcl, Catherine Gar-nok, Lorraine Horel, Eleanor Lehman, Jerry MacDonald. Robert Haag, Jerry Rasmussen, Barry Ewalt and Henry Falstad. Auto Accessories Ready, willing, and able are the seven young men adorning the Model T. Draped about the car in such artistic fashion are Dodo Lehman, Alvin Kluth, Jack Brushcrt, Chick Kolstad, Wayne Larson, Jack Hog-ness, and Harold Fiern. Room Committee The Women’s Rest Room Committee supervises the Women’s Rest Room. President Schofield and Miss Sutherland act as advisors to this group chosen as representatives of the various classes and courses. In the back row are Miss Sutherland, President Schofield, Jeanette Lacktorin and Leona Sleetcr; in front are Virginia Smith, Mary Kyle, Elizabeth Lucia and Janice Duxbury. I c i ii i ii c i ii i: it i 113 Presidents' Wives A varied program of impersonations of leading wives of Presidents of the United States was presented at a student assembly by Miss Mary Waterstreet of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Many of her costumes are said to be exact replicas of those worn by First Ladies. All-Conference Caliber The Co-captains of the Eau Claire 1938 football squad were both placed on the State Teachers College all-conference second team. They are Orville Quick and Hugh Horswill. Periscope Skit This purely masculine representation of the Sophomore Class was awarded third place in the Periscope skit contest. It is composed of, top row, Jerome Hendrickson, Melvin Pfeffercorn, and Gerald Phillips; and front row, Harold Holtz, John Ocker-landcr, and Frank Auer. First Place Winners The beaming faces of this Primary Club skit cast may well be thus for the group was awarded first prize in the Periscope contest. They are, top row, "Pat” North and Bcttic Scobie; and, front row, Margaret Milcy, Mary Wright, and Dorothy Brist. Circulation Staff The Periscope Circulation Staff has each year the important task of interesting the student body in the annual by arranging for skies to be given by the various clubs. Pictured here are, top row. Art I.udvigson, Vernon Rambcrg, Henry Strand, Don Ruf, Jim Patten; and front row, Charles Brown, Myrce Waters, and Dan Sullivan. They constituted the staff. 114 c i ii i ii r i ii i; is aGrant Plett Here is Grant Plett, Sophomore; his picture appears at the right, but not elsewhere in the book. In other words. Plett and a member of the Periscope Staff struck a bargain; that is. Platt agreed to buy a Periscope and the member of the staff promised to find a place in the book for Plett’s picture. Did Mr. Plett or the Periscope get the better of the bargain? Class Officers Doris Johnson and Bruce Peterson were not present when the picture of the class officers was taken. Doris is Vice President of the Sophomore Class, and Peterson holds the position of Treasurer of the Graduating Class. University Debaters On Thursday, March 3, a New York I Jnivcrsitv debate squad met Eau Claire College teams in practice matches before both schools entered the debate tournament at St. Thomas College. Members of the New York team are, right to left in the picture, Joseph Sonnenreich. Leon Ro-glow, Laurence Lustig, and Paul Kalian. Boxing Club A boxing club, organized last year, is now under the direction of Don Paffcl, a student here. The club plans to enter a tournament at Superior this Spring. Participants shown here are. top row, Boettcher. Deutcher, Horswill, Craemcr, and Paffel; bottom row. Severson, Stahlman, Rcick. Munson, and Hartwig. Cheer Leaders The cheer leaders have done a great deal this vear to stimulate school spirit during the football and basketball seasons. They have been present at all of the home games, and have followed the team to several other schools. They are, left to right in the picture, Sam Jones, Betsy Jones. Dorothy Bullis, and Dan Sullivan. C 4 4IIIII I' AII i; li AKnow Them? Upper left in the picture is "Sammy" Jones, the lad from Chippewa, who apparently did not heed the warning that there was ice on the front steps. Immediately below "Sammy’s” picture is that of Dallas Books and Charles Brown, who arc engaged in preparing the Science Club skit for the Periscope circulation drive. Surely when the staff photographer saw Alice Wilk, upper right in the picture, in such ardent contemplation, he guessed that Spring must be in the air. Work and Play The camera caught Betty Johnson, at the left, in a studious frame of mind, so often lacking in college students. Life seems to be bubbling over for Harold Rctallick, to the right of Betty, and why not? Isn't he a Senior? Delores "Dec" Anderson, to the right of Rctallick, possibly dared the camcrman to take her picture slightly au naturcl. Work or Play? The balcony is sometimes a secluded spot, as such activity as the picture, just below that of Betty Johnson, of Mary Augustine and Bruce Bylander, may suggest. May one judge from Bruce’s look of content that he was happy? Perhaps he was unaware of an intruder. Jerome Hendrickson, shown to the right of Mary and Bruce, seems to have extracted some sort of comfort from a big bundle of fur. Needless to say, the poor thing objected to such treatment. Before Practice Jack Hogness, Wayne Larson, Donald Moore, and Walter I-chman arc shown in the bottom picture in process of dressing for basketball practice. All four of the boys did remarkably well this season as members of the basketball squad, which won the championship of the Northern Division this year. I' 1 IIIII (' I EIIAFive Co-eds What’s this? Just a sample of our coeds. Jean Johnson, upper left, posed for this picture. Joyce Olson, upper right, displays her skill at horseshoe. Wonder who is at the other stake. Ready! Get set! Go! Betty Rowley, Doris Rognlicn, and Dorothy Nelson, lower right, are ready to start. "Sammy’s” Snaps Here is a girl playing in the snow in her shorts. "Sammy” Jones caught Elizabeth Lucia down by the frozen creek. Her smile isn’t frozen. On the Choir’s trip to Chicago, Elaine Dutchcr center, posed in Lincoln Park. Mr. Donaldson, right, was caught by a candid camera fanatic (Sam Jones) before a ebss—or is he leading a cheer? More Co-eds What, Nancy in a serious mood? Nancy North, left, was "snapped” as she was displaying her talent in a dramatics production. The "tackle twins”, Betsy Jones and Dot Bullis, right, are all togged out to lead a cheer for the team. Along with "Toughy,” the mascot, they did their bit in helping the team to victory. Getting Ready Three-ten o’clock means only one thing to Lehman, center, and "Chick” Kolstad. forward, of the Blue and Gold basketball championship team. Here the boys are dressing for another session of hard work, the kind that made them the best in the Northern Division. The locker room was a clinic for sprained ankles, cracked fingers and "charley-horses” during the season. r t ii i ii 11 ii i: it i 117 'V' % fAliy ays the Indian child was carefully schooled in the arts of living so that he would be of benefit to his tribe. Similarly tire College Training School teaches its pupils so that they may be equipped to become socially efficient. Elk Mound School This and the following three pages show pictures taken at Elk Mound, Wisconsin. Students enrolled in the High School Teachers Course at Eau Claire Teachers College do part of their practice work in the high school at Elk Mound. Here is a view of the school and surrounding territory taken from the top of the hill at Elk Mound, one of the highest points in northern Wisconsin. Stocks and Bonds Bowman Larson, a student teacher at Elk Mound, conducted a study of stocks and bonds in his Economics Class. Ell-wood Harrison. Marion Meyer, David Rosenberg. Ruth Bleiler, and Helen Solberg are shown here working on some stock quotations. Phy. Ed. Class When weather permits the Physical Education classes at Elk Mound are conducted outside. Here we see the class assembling for work. Those in the class are Helen Anderson. Blanche Nelson, Evelyn Hanson, Elsie Jam, Nona Rhude, and Dorothy Rot-nem. Alberta Carlson (front center) is the student teacher. Principal McPhee Mr. McPhee of the Teachers College faculty, who supervises the practice work at Elk Mound, is a graduate of this college and has a Master of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota. He is now Principal of the Junior High School at the College, and will become Director of the Training School this September. ELK MIIH'II IIIUIMount Elk Mound Mount Elk Mound serves as a background for the school. Fine educational opportunities are provided for the youth of the surrounding territory by this progressive i community. The school is near enough to the college to permit practice teachers to spend half the day at the high school and half at the college. English Class The picture at the right is of an English class conducted by Edith Broetzman, a student teacher. The student teachers practice in the following fields—English, science, social sciences, mathematics, and physical education. A member of the high school faculty from each of these fields supervises the work of the student teachers. Study Period From 8:30 a. m. to 9:00 a. m. and from 1:00 p. m. to 1:30 p. m. all the students of the Elk Mound High School study in Main Hall. A very democratic system has been worked out whereby students are permitted to make use of all educational equipment in the room any time they wish to do so. School Library In the School Library at the rear of Main Room are many current magazines, abundant reference material, and numerous books on ail subjects. This part of the room is always teeming with activity. From the main halls one has access to all the class rooms. ELK IIII I! II II11, II Class Demonstration This is the Elk Mound Senior Sociology Class, which gave a demonstration lesson at the college for the college History and Social Science classes. Mr. Charles Emery, Principal of the Elk Mound High School, was in charge of the class. In th picture, standing, left to right, arc Elwood Harrison, Marvin Nelson, Beverly Dodge, Gloria Hanson, Donald Dodge, Helen Solbcrg, Bessie Peterson, David Rosenberg, Burlie Dodge; seated left to right, Ruth Blcilcr, Valeria Sukop, Eleanor Stahibuash, Carol Jain, Marion Meyer, and Adeline Ackerman. Main Hall Whenever Elk Mound students aren’t in class, they study in Main Hall. Student teachers have charge of Main Hall. The faculty of the high school and Mr. Mc-Phee, of the college, supervise the student teachers. Ball Game Kittenball is the girls’ favorite outdoor sport, and basketball is the best-liked indoor sport at Elk Mound. Student teachers in charge of physical education classes also have charge of at least two academic classes. Typical School In this modem school building at Elk Mound all grades from the First Grade through the Senior High School are taught. The use of this school for training purposes was started this year to prepare better prospective high school teachers. The school is well adapted to this purpose because it is typical of the small high school, the kind in which most young high school teachers begin their professional careers. ELK II l ll III li IIt Consolidation Success Elk Mound pupils arc brought to school from the surrounding country in these buses. In this way rural students are afforded the same educational opportunities as those near the school. The consolidation of several schools, which has been a part of the recent educational program, has been successfully achieved in the Elk Mound community. Girls' Kittenball Pictured here is another group of girls in a physical education class. The sports program carried out this year included kittenball and basketball. During the past year the boys’ basketball team won the honor of participating in the district basketball tournament. Traveling Library The college has spared no effort in supplying this school with the most modem-equipment available. Many of the textbooks and much of the supplementary material used has been taken from the college library. Louis Barkin and Harold Retal-lick are here shown helping Edith Broetz-man and Alberta Carlson, student teachers, get books ready to be taken to Elk Mound. Practice Teachers Roy Speckicn, Anne Blumenthalcr, Robert Tomashek, Dorothy Nelson, and Alfred Hovcy, student teachers, are shown at the right, ready to leave for Elk Mound.

WISCONSIN 11) v i: ii t isd ii 135"Clawprick in the Moon” Whoever it was who defined love as "a clawprick in the moon” must have been a discerning gentleman. "A clawprick in the moon”—how adequate, how complete, how descriptive! I read a book once about a fair lady in a tower or bower—which, it matters not—and a gallant knight who wooed her, and performed prodigious feats to win her. I read a story once about a lettered gentleman who decried love as a biological urge, and then succumbed to its gentling influence when his pursuer had her unlovely nose straightened surgically. 1 read a play once about two lovers who committed suicide; uselessly, the one for the other. And I have read impassioned sonnets—restrained and unrestrained—creaking with sighs, wailing with regrets, weeping with sorrow, effusive with the praise of past, present, and future lovers, gender immaterial. Consequently, there has been foisted upon me a most beautiful ideal—quite unhuman, it is true, and complex, but still beautiful. Keats has informed us that ''beauty is its own excuse for being.” Therein is the complete justification for this romantic emotional pattern. Or is it? Once I almost believed that two people—genders opposite—could meet—say on a street corner (it might be raining and she could ram him with her umbrella, and stop and say, "Oh, I’m so very sorry”; or she might drop her ridiculously inadequate "hanky” and he, according to a custom adapted to remote ages when stooping was difficult for women because of their tight lacings, would pick it up, return it to her with a courtly flourish, and say "Haven’t I seen you some place before?”) glance into each others eyes, either feci as if they were mutually drowning in two limpid pools of blue or else ignite sparks in each other’s orbs (like two pieces of flint rubbed together) and then fall in love. It was very simple. You couldn’t help yourself. It just happened, and there you were. As I said, I almost believed it possible, at one time. All which goes to show how effectively this myth is perpetrated upon receptive minds. A rather universally accepted idea, even today, is that of "falling in love”. Not so many hold to the "first sight” type; but the kind that develops more slowly is generally approved, on the cautious theory that slow growth indicates slow decline. It is all a matter of taste. Some people want intensity, and others comfort. The strange part of this whole idea of love once was that there was just one person fitted for each other one. You might go all your life and never meet him, or you might accidentally bump into him, as I mentioned before. You might be riding in a gondola in Venice, and there he would be with his grind organ and monkey; or he might even be that man, with the mole on his nose, whom you had always so thoroughly disliked. You could never tell. It was chance, but there was only one person in the world meant for you. A very ambitious, complicated plan, a marriage bureau with offices in Heaven, and God too busy to connect parties! It was very romantic to think about. No one could ever tell you what love was. It was what happened to mother when she quit going with other men so she could marry father later. (Actually, she knew she couldn’t be young forever. Father looked like the best bet. No use to do some one else’s housework, or teach other people’s children for pin money.) Then love was sometimes said to be a spiritual thing. Hence its undefinable quality: It was a communion of souls, an affinity of kindred spirits, with the sigh of a chaste kiss upon cheek or brow. A minor physical element, which may have seemed to mar its spirituality, in reality simply emphasized a spiritual union, much as partaking of holy communion does. This was a nice belief, and pretty sounding; much nicer than "necking”. And it had the appeal—"I would do anything in the world for you”—that makes the speaker expand his personality even while attaining the object of his desire. It was very nice for a girl of sixteen, or eighteen, or twenty, to thrill herself with the words she has read and heard of since infancy—"I’m in love; I’m loved.” She could afford to fall in love. Financially there was nothing much better for her to do. Educationally a great deal wasn’t required. When she reached maturity, she was settled for life—often so before she had reached maturity. Love was an escape for her, just as adventure stories arc for lives avid for adventure. And love was a blanket term excusing all actions. Jealousy was a right and natural result of it: reforming the husband and unselfish desire for his betterment; self-martyrdom and self-destruction of personality were all in the interests of love. For the men, it took a different turn. Wives were a species of property (and still arc, more or less) and therefore a husband’s jealousy was a kind of self-protection. He required faithfulness of her, even while not over-careful in his own relationships. Love is "a clawprick in the moon”, a fiction of the poet’s imagination, a figure of speech attempting to capture a quality which humans have so far been denied. "A clawprick in the moon”—romantic to think of, impossible to attain?

In regard to student tastes in beverages, it was found that a great amount of orangeade and coca cola is sold during warm weather, while in the winter the sale of these two drinks is only about one-fourth as much. The call for plain milk and chocolate milk is considerable during the entire school year. For dessert, pie and ice cream are favorites. All kinds of pie are liked. Ice cream bars, ice cream cones, ice cream sundaes, and even ice cream on pic are served during all hours of the day. Sandwiches are well liked by practicallv all the students. For sandwich fillings, meat and cheese are Dre-fered by the majority. The demand for bread is about half for wheat and half for rye. Possiblv there is a greater call for beef than for any other kind of meat. Books You Should Read Have vou ever wondered what some of the b-st kooks are and have been too shv to ask rhe librarian? Th e is a new book in our library which should serve an im-rvvrant dutv. It is "The Best Book of rhe Decade 1926-1935. bv Dickinson. Having found rhe best books, perhaps vou would care to know somethin about the authors. "After the Genteel Tradition", bv Cowlev. will give vou criticisms of American writers since 1910. "How Writers Write", bv Gillet. is concerned with the different phases of literature, each Iving discussed bv modem writers who are exponents of the type. Wirh vacation approaching it may be interesting ro learn "How to Travel Without Beinq Rich", from William Strong. Perhaps, vou are planning to have a par-tv; Alfreda Lee’s "Tabic Decorations and Partv Plans" or Dorothv Biddle’s and Dorothea Blom’s "Book of Table Setting" may give you some tips. Or if vou are candid-camera crazy, Deschin’s "New Wavs in Photographs" may please you. On the other hand. "Automobile Safety Driving" by Flaherty should be read bv many since it is so vital a problem. If you’re planning your future life, Howe’s "Social Security” may influence your decisions. Music has an important place in our librarv. Good biographies are common on the shelves. "Twentieth Century composers”, by Ewen, will be of interest to the music lovers, as will Howe’s "A Key to the Art of Music.” For sheer pleasure, read Holmboe’s "Desert Encounter", a story of daring adventure in North Africa. Chew also on Tilman’s "The Ascent of Narda Dcve”, a true story of the trip up the highest peak ever climbed, located in the Himalayas, told by the leader of the expedition. Edna St. Vincent Millay will always be a favorite, so try her "Conversations at Midnight”. Perhaps the most interesting recent biography is "Madame Curie”, written by her daughter. Eve Curie. For a picture of life in Washington, read Francis Parkinson Keyes’ the New Hampshire senator’s wife, "Capital Kaleidoscope.” For deeper reading, several new books of international interest may be found in E. C. Davies’ "A Wayfarer in Esthonia, Latvia, and Lithuania”, Killctt’s "The Storv of Dictatorship", Schuman’s "Germany Since 1918”, Ball’s "Post-War Gcrman-Austrian Relations”, Werch’s "Which Wav France?” Strong’s "New Soviet Constitution". and "The United States in World Affairs, 1936", by the Council on Foreign Relations. Geography Department The Eau Claire Teachers College Geography Department is one of the best equipped in the state. There are large maps of all countries on the walls, including l»rge relief maps of Glacier National Park. Yosemite Valiev. Yellowstone National Park. Crater Lake, the Grand Canyon, and Niagara Falls; block diagrams of mountain areas, showing cross-sections of geological structures and effects of erosion and glasiation; also maps of coral reefs, stratification, and volcanic action. There are ten globes in the department—one showing in relief the land and water of the world. Many pictures and charts of the world are posted. In the department there is also a planetarium, which shows the relationship of the planets to one another. A display case contains rock specimens from northwest Wisconsin. This collection is believed to be the best collection of rocks of this region. Displays from the leading occupations in Eau Claire are in another case. There are about fifty boxes of assorted minerals and rocks for instructional purposes; that is, to acquaint students with the rocks of various sections of this country.

Forgot to call a spade a spade in playing bridge. Got up and struck a match to see if he had blown out the candle.

TIS l I.Buckets of Blood (in part only) "For four long years the Seniors of 1938 have been subject to the tyrannical, devastating, humiliating, and nauseating influence of the Faculty. This ruthless human exploitation must be abated. We Seniors have arrived at the conclusion that we must organize our defenses or suffer complete extermination. "We are therefore hungry for revenge. We invite the Faculty to attempt to uphold their supremacy in a form of combat that places the two of us on an equal footing. We will meet the force of the Faculty wirh force; we will meet ruthlessness with ruthlessness. In short, we challenge the Faculty to a game of basketball to be played at a date to be arranged by representatives of the parties concerned. "Assuming that the Faculty will accept this challenge —and thev always have—we have gone ahead w»th plans for the game, and will now endeavor to give the student body an insight as what to expect in this battle. "At present the office force and Mr. Donaldson are unattached in their affections, although Mr. Donaldson, because of professional ethics, leans heavilv toward the Faculty. This faction is deemed a guiding influence upon the welfare of the group they align themselves with. "We Seniors concede to the Faculty a decided edt» in coaching. Bill Zorn—the builder of champions—will lend his coaching genius to them. In retaliation, the .Seniors have secured the services of Coach Francis "Peanv” Strauch—the pride of Fall Creek. "In response to the incessant demands of the Women’s Rest Room Committee, Coach Zorn has consented to don a uniform and relieve "Whoonee Tohn” Schneider at one of the forward posts. At the center position, "Man Mountain” Masteriohn will be pitted against the diminutive, elusive, sharpshooting sparkplug of the Faculty, "Doc” Davenport. "It is rumored that "Buckets” Wallin has slowed up considerably during the past year. Nevertheless, his shooting deficit will still be a major economic difficulty. " "Fibber” McPhee has decided to stage a one-man comeback this vear after his miserable showing in last year’s game. Mac’s cause looks hopeless in light of the fact he has an attachment at Elk Mound. " "Hooker” Homback, "Vitamin D” Haight, "Doc” Judd, and Mr. Milliren are also sure to see plenty of action.” Frank Betz, etal. Books in Library Our library contains 25,757 books, including those of the Training School. Of these books, 22,317 are in use in the library, and the remaining 3,688 arc stacked in the basement for future reference or to be sold to those wishing second-hand books. A large number of these books are given to demonstration schools. The average daily circulation of books is four hundred, including reserve books. The total circulation for the year 1936-1937, including that of the Summer School, was 87,568. The library docs not try to carry many fiction books because they can be drawn more readily from the public library. The bulk of fiction reading in college is done for English reading reports; therefore the librarian’s choice of good fiction must be made in accordance with students’ demands for authors. School Expenditures In 1937, the Eau Qaire State Teachers College spent a total of 145,412.45. The items which make up this total were divided into three main headings: capital, maintenance, and operation. The latter was subdivided into the following groups: adminstration. physical plant, instruction, library, student welfare, and insurance. The division headed "capital” included repairs on the building and fixtures, $2,759.84; machinery and tools, $933.03; educational apparatus, $1,981.01; library. $2,-349.22; textbooks, $2,414.64; and other items in lesser amounts. Some of the subdivisions under the heading "maintenance” were land improvements, $362.10; educational apparatus, $596.88; furniture and furnishings, $690.99; and textbooks, $580.93. The total expenditures of this group were $5,588.74 in the year indicated. Last year, $128,153.01 was spent for operation. Of this amount, $11,177.05 was paid the expenses of th administration, $113.59 for stationery and supplies, $467.50 for postage, and $364.48 for telephone and telegraph. Traveling expenses, express, freight and dray-age, printing, and sundry supplies are also included in this group. The expenses of the physical plant made up the second classification under operations. This included $3, 514.47 for fuel, $1,822.38 for light and power, $258.60 for water, and a total of $5,639.80 for the combined salaries of the engineers and janitors. The total amount spent for this classification was $12,633.17. During year, $97,915.87 was spent for instruction. Teachers’ salaries, totaling $95,282.32, was the largest item listed under this division. For the library $5,311.41 was spent in 1937. This included librarians’ salaries and the amount paid for newspapers and periodicals and sundry supplies. (Continued on Page 146) 144 A I) VEIt TISINUmmisuu 145"Pep" For Superior Game (Continued From Page 144) The $498.02 spent for student welfare included out lays as follows: $48.38, student health; and $50.00, student organizations. For insurance, $617.49 was spent. This insurance is handled entirely by the state instead of by private companies. Dividing the total cost, $145,412.45, by seven hundred, the total enrollment of the regular school session and the summer school in 1936-’37, the average cost per student is found to be approximately $207.73. Student fees each semester total twenty dollars. Periscope Drive The Periscope drive this year consisted of many novel features. Various organizations of the school presented assembly skits. A five-pound box of candy was awarded to the Primary Club, which won first place. A bank drawing was also held Tuesday and Thursday in the assembly. James Kleiner won one dollar credit, and Paul Drier received one Periscope free. Signifying the number of books sold, a thermometer was made by Frank Mastcrjohn. Posters were also made. A chart was made by Kenneth Peterson to record the percentage of sales in the classes of faculty members. A pound-box of candy was given for every ten members of classes having 100 per cent. A group of students acting as Periscope salesmen made contacts with students who had not subscribed. Four hundred sixty-eight books were sold as a result of the drive. Magazines in Library The contemporary popularity of magazines is proved by the large number of magazines to which our school library subscribes, there being some one-hundred and fifty available for use. Some of them are bound and kept for future use; others—well, they are just kept. Twice a year, October and April, magazines are sent to the binder. This school still takes thirty-three of the magazines it subscribed for when it opened its doors for the first time in 1916. The most recent magazines to find for themselves a place in the library are "The Horn Book”, "Social Education”, and "Story Parade”. The recent trend in magazines has been for two or more magazines to combine. Magazines featuring many pictures for hurried reading arc very popular at present.

When Kolstad was in the eighth grade he was asked to be a drum major for a child’s drum corps. He went into the work wholeheartedly. He was drum major for the St. Patrick’s High School band for four years. Kolstad has participated in several baton twirling contests. He received first a rating in Class A at Madison and Wausau. At the national contest at Madison in 1935, he received a second rating in Class A. In 1936, he entered a twirling contest in the Chicago Tribune’s Chicago Music Land Festival. He twirled in an adult class of twenty and received fourth place.

When "Chick” Kolstad and Frank Wrigglesworth, were wandering through the college tunnel, thev were much surprised to meet a roaming, hungry, black kitten. Feeling sorry for the lonesome creature, they took her home, gave her a bath, and fed her. The two heroes had completed their good deed, but "Toughy” had not even started. At the team’s first basketball game, ’Toughy” was in the line-up. But Coach Zorn did not approve of black cats; therefore, to the consternation of "Toughy’s” partners, she was thrown out three times—each time being carried in again. The boys won that game and the next two, ’Toughy” always accompanying the team as their mascot and proving an aid to victory. Coach Zorn finally adopted "Toughv”. A milk fund was raised to which each of "Toughy’s” pals contributed. On the first trip, Coach Zorn brought a box along for "Toughy”. When the team stopped at a restaurant, "Toughy” was right there to receive her share. After the game at Decorah, "Toughy” was lost but was found, after much crawling on hands and knees on the part of the team. She was lost again at the hotel. In a few days, "Toughy” came $.78 express—to the basketball team. After this incident, a leash and halter protected "Toughy” from getting lost. "Toughy” was present at every game, sitting on the bench watching with pride her ’’pals” of victory. "Toughy” now is in the custody of "Dodo” Lehman. Chemistry Equipment The approximate cost of the equipment used in Eau Claire Teachers College Chemistry department is about 7.000 dollars, according to Mr. Ackerman, head of the department. The Chemistry lecture room has two important instruments in additions to the charts—the hydrometer, which cost about 10 dollars and the barometer, which cost 125 dollars. The office and store room has several valuable pieces of equipment in it. A water still cost 50 dollars; two spectrometers, 250 dollars; a palescope 125 dollars; a Parr calorimeter, 150 dollars; and volumetric cylinders and flacks, 75 dollars. The electrical equipment is estimated to have cost 500 dollars and the glassware 200 dollars. The total cost of all other equipment was approximately 500 dollars. The student laboratory, in which the equipment found on the four laboratory tables cost 800 dollars, houses the electrical ovens, which cost 300 dollars. The chemicals stored in large cupboards along the wall cost about 1,000 dollars. The balance room is equipped with seven balances worth 700 dollars. The electroyltic apparatus is worth 300 dollars. Last but not least the chemistry department has a cat that Mr. Ackerman considers worth at least 25 cents. Group System "What is the matter with our school?” was the question in 1920, just a few years after the war. The answer was, "It lacks enthusiasm.” Faculty members at their meetings pondered over what to do to revive school spirit. They finally worked out a plan—the group system. The plan was to divide the students into five competitive groups. These groups were to be given "points” for school entertainments, ticket sales, oratorv, basketball, and other activities. The faculty selected five boys and five girls to be leaders. There was one girl and one boy leader for each group. These leaders planned stunts to give in the assembly to induce the rest of the students to join this or that group. After the grouos were established each selected officers, mottos, colors, and yells. They conducted contests in writing a school song and in giving assembly programs. In 1921 the faculty did not take the lead. Finally, a grouo of students went to President Schofield and asked if thev mic»ht a®ain have the grouDS o -®an«zed. President Schofield said he had been waiting for them to take the lead. Again the leaders were selected, and again the plan was successful.

Mrs. Pay. assisted by Miss Thomas and Mr. Bridgman, both of the faculty, at the steam counter, served the sixty-five students who dined at the cafeteria that day. The first equipment was very meaner—a small gas «team counter, a small range, a small ice box, and a limited amount of cooking utensils and dishes. Now conditions are much improved. Such electrical time and work savers as a ootato peeler, a dish washer, and an adequate ice box have been added, together with a large gas range, a 30-foot steam counter, stationary tables, and an array of dishes. The cafeteria now has a normal seating capacity of one hundred. Many school organizations use the cafeteria for evening dinners. The oresent staff includes Mrs. C. R. Ray, manager; Mrs. William Bouaird, assistant; and college students who aid in the work.

(■ 149Peace or War Would you willingly fight as a part of the military forces of the United States, if we should undertake a war to preserve world democracy? This question was asked of five Eau Qaire Teachers College young men students. Their answers follow: Kenneth Kling—''Absolutely not. We fought for the preservation of democracy in the World War, and what have we now? If other countries want to fight, let them, but America should stay at home.” John Mundt—"No. Why should we go over to some European country and fight their wars when we have enough trouble at home.” Francis Strauch—"I would not join if the war was fought in a foreign country. If we were protecting our own country, I would willingly join, but not to protect someone else’s.” Vernon Ramberg—"No. World democracy is, to me, after a look at the world from my vantage point, nothing more than a child’s dream of a star. It is the sales talk of land and property-hungry egoists.” Byron Blanchard—"No, because the United States should not be considered the guardian of world democracy. It was proved by the last war that democracy did not exist after we had fought a war to make the world safe for democracy. To enter another war for such a purpose would be an imperialistic policy. Further, I am not in favor of a war of aggression, which another war would undoubtedly become. Five young women were asked, "Would you advise a young man to fight if the United States should decide to go to war to save the world for democracy?” Their answers were: Marjorie Edington—"We fought once to save the world for democracy, and what did we gain by it?” Winifred Davey—"Democracy can’t be won by fighting.” Lois Gabus—"A war fought for democracy could never be won. If the United States wants to save the world for democracy it should do it by other means.” Beulah Schilling—"We could not be sure that we could gain anything by such a war. In the World War, we fought for the same thing, and now twenty years later the question has come up again.” Pauline Smith—"By fighting the World War for the same cause we only created new problems for the world to fight over.” Band There is a growing interest in band work at Eau Claire Teachers College. This interest, of both participants and audience, was shown at an assembly given, the latter part of February, to exhibit, the musical progress made during the year. The Training School’s "baby” bands, under the supervision of Miss Dahl, first and second grades critic, and directed by student teachers, Rosalie Kjentvet, Wynne Lund, and Vivian Anderson, gave interesting exhibitions of the work that b being carried on by the little tots. They use tambourines, xylophones, orchestra and sleigh bells, harmonicas, cymbals, large and small drums, castanets, and rhythm sticks. Because of the lack of satbfactory music, Mr. Harrb, band director, has written the music—twenty-six compositions—for this work. These compositions are soon to be put in book form for more extensive use. Several piano parts have been arranged by Mrs. Zorn. Grades I, II, and III participate in this rhythm band work. Much enthusiasm has been shown by the older Training School students. They have a well-rounded group of instruments, twenty-eight pieces in all. Harry Kor-gcr b the student director. There are also in the making three drum majors under the supervbion of Robert Kolstad, who won first place in 1936 in a contest held at Chicago, and fourth place in a national contest, for baton-twirling. The college band has been more active than last year. There has been an increase of ten members, the membership now numbering thirty-six. Senior-Faculty Game The traditional annual Senior-Faculty basketball game played March 17, took the student body away from its routine class work and provided the usual applause or boos. Publicity was built up in the usual ballyhoo manner. Frank Betz was the challenger for the Seniors. Dr. Davenport of the faculty accepted the challenge. The faculty thb year used as player on its squad Mr. Gordon, basketball coach at the Elk Mound High School, who certainly did his share to help the faculty win. Other prominent players on the faculty team were Mark Haight, who was "chalked up” with only two attempts to "maim” opposing players, "Whoopee John” Schneider, and "Fibber” McPhee. After the first quarter, Coach Zorn cut the usual ten-minute quarters down to six minutes. The final score was 35-28 in favor of the faculty. Last year the Seniors won 30-27, playing the last quarter with but three men. This year the faculty line up consisted of Mr. Hornback, Mr. Haight, Coach Zorn, Dr. Davenport, Mr. Gordon, Mr. McPhee, and Dr. Schneider. The Seniors, who were coached by Francis Strauch, were Waters, Menard, Betz, Barkin, Amundson, Peterson, Weishapple, Patten, Dale, Masterjohn, Sorenson, Oftcdahl, Davb, Olson and Paape. 1II IE li TI s m; 150OF THE PARTY!

Outstanding Events Investigation has brought to light a wide range of opinions as to what has been the most outstanding event here of this college year. Many persons—both teachers and students—when asked were unable to name any specific event. Those who did commit themselves chose events of varying nature. Lillian Svcngaard, a Senior, said, "This year’s Prom will be a fitting and important climax to the social activities of the year.” Charles Brown, a Junior, on the other hand opined that the main event was President Schofield’s ban on the "Big Apple”. Robert Martin, a graduate student, promptly proclaimed the winning of the basketball conference championship to be the outstanding event; and Doctor Schneider, of the faculty, thought the distinction lay between the latter and the beginning of practice teaching at Elk Mound. George Carroll, basketball player, when questioned, promptly replied, "The winning of the basketball championship was, in my opinion, the most important event. The basketball season was especially outstanding, for even a victorious team seldom comes through a season with a clear conference record.” The opinion expressed by Jane Milliren, Freshman, was very similar to this. Mr. Donaldson, of the faculty, submitted unhesitatingly his opinion that the defeat of the River Falls basketball team, at River Falls, was the outstanding event of the year. This game clinched the conference title, although it was not the last of the conference games. Dolly Madison Dairies, Inc.

The janitors are perhaps better known than the engineer, for we sec Mr. Quella and Mr. Peterson cleaning halls and rooms each day, whereas Mr. Hahn, the engineer, is somewhat secluded from the student body because his working quarters are more temote. He has been chief engineer here since the establishment of the college, in 1916, and has had a great deal to do with the beautification of the campus. It isn't easy to secure an interview with either of the two janitors because they are always busy, but the writer finally succeeded in cornering them in their room and then proceeded to question them. Mr. Quella, the head janitor, has been employed here twenty-one years, beginning his duties one year after the school was established. He was born in Eau Claire and has lived here all his life. He likes his work among the students of the college very much. He works from eight to ten hours a day, and has only one N.Y.A. helper. Mr. Peterson, better known as "Pete”, is assistant to Mr. Quella. He was born in Norway, and completed his elementary education there. "Then,” said Mr. Peterson, "I was sent out into the world to look out for myself. That’s what they do in Norway.” When seventeen, he came to Eau Claire and was employed in a sawmill for several years. He has been in service in this college for thirteen years. His son, Hardean Peterson, was the editor of the Periscope and a graduate from here. He is now principal of Junior High at Lodi, Wis. Plutocrat Police Sergeant—A college student, eh?

Later, it was extended to the Teachers College, where it is under the chairmanship of Dr. Wallin of the faculty. Each of the major clubs of the college has a representative in the club. The purpose of the organization is to educate the public relative to peace in such a way that it will demand international peace as far as it is possible for the United States to use its influence to gain it. Toward this end the organization is striving. Speeches and debates take up the time of members when they meet each month. Last Fall a group of the members attended a peace meeting at Madison.

Tel. 2-1211 The Spectator The first issue of the Spectator appeared October 24, 1923. Among the departments of its four pages were a Training School section and an extensive humor section. Headlines announced the Eau Claire State Normal’s football 16-14 victory over Superior. The only now locally remembered members of the first Spectator staff are Garence Imislund, Editor, Joseph Walch, Advertising Manager, and Harold Ray, Circulation Manager. Those three chose the name "The Spectator.” As the enrollment of the school was somewhat smaller then, news items were less numerous than now; writeups were longer; features played a prominent part. Sweet Young Thing "Ted darling,” said the sweet young thing who had been taken to see her first football game, "how long does a man have to be a halfback before they make him a fullback?” ADVERTISING 159Mrs. Ray Mrs. Ray’s early life was spent at Vinton, Iowa. After graduating from the Vinton High School and also from a private academy, she spent six years as a grade school teacher. In 1901 she was married and came to Wisconsin, where she continued to teach for four years, two years as a high school substitute teacher. Her object in coming to Eau Claire Teachers College was not to engage in cafeteria work, but to enable her son and daughter to secure the educational advantages offered in Eau Claire. Her son Harold R. Ray was graduated here in the 1925 class, and for the past twelve years has been vocational instructor at Wood-stock, Illinois. He completed his vocational training at Stout Institute. He was one of the young men who took upon themselves the responsibility of launching the school paper—the Spectator. He was also Advertising Manager of the Periscope one year in which the advertising was contracted in the amount of 840. Mrs. Ray’s daughter, Margaret, now Mrs. R. S. Pluntz of Eau Claire, was a member of the class of 1928, and spent some time teaching in Wisconsin. Mr. McPhee Mr. Eugene R. McPhee. who was recently appointed Director of the Training School, is an alumnus of the Eau Claire State Teachers College. He was graduated from the former three-year course in 1923, from the high school teachers degree course in 1931, and received, in 1934, the Master of Arts Degree from the University of Minnesota. In 1923, Mr. McPhee accepted the position of superintendent of schools at Winter, Wisconsin. In 1930, he became superintendent of schools at Elk Mound, where he remained until 1932, when he was appointed Principal of the Junior High Department of the Training School here. He has served the college in this capacity since. For recreation, Mr. McPhee prefers bridge, reading, and fishing, although he says he doesn’t catch many fish. He also holds a captain’s commission in the Officers’ Reserve Corps. In 1934, he married Frances Fulton of Eau Claire, who is also a graduate of the Eau Claire Teachers College. They have one daughter, Jeanne, and two sons, Roderick and Michael. Naming The Periscope One must rum back two decades to look into the early history of the Periscope. The first step in establishing the annual was deciding upon a suitable name. The purpose of the first annual, and also of all those that have followed, was to provide a view of the events of the academic year. As an annual can do nothing more than act as a revealer of events of school life, it was thought that "Periscope” would be a suitable name. It may be of interest to know that the Periscope staff of 1917 consisted of six members. The editor in chief was Margaret Dittmer. Besides the staff of six members there was also a Periscope board. The board consisted of four divisions: literary and administrative, art and classes, athletics and organizations, and history and sidelights. The Office Force Perhaps you have often wondered who sends your grades home at the end of each semester. If you are looking for the "guilty party”, you will find her in the main office—Mrs. Geraldine Wing of Eau Claire. She also assists Dr. Wallin, Registrar, and takes President Schofield’s dictations. Mrs. Wing has been here seven years, longer than any other member of the office force. Miss Chipman has been at Eau Claire State Teachers College four years. Her home is at Red Granite, Wisconsin. She attended Oshkosh Teachers College, and received a degree at the University of Wisconsin. She has taught in various parts of the state. She says that Eau Claire is doing a good job of training prospective teachers. Miss Chipman is kept busy placing orders for school materials, paying the college bills, and keeping the records of student fees. Mrs. Holbrook, also from Eau Claire, has been here three years. She has charge of all alumni records, and acts as Miss Chipman’s assistant. She says the better she knows the school the better she likes it. Mrs. Krammcs, for the past four years secretaary to Mr. Brewer, is a graduate from the Eau Claire High School. She has charge of all office duties relating to the Training School. She has found the college a very pleasant place to work. Youngest Student We have had with us this year a rival of Samuel and Betsy Jones, both of whom entered this institution at the age of fourteen. He is George Le Roy Bullis, who was born April 26, 1922, in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and thus is now sixteen years old. He has been preceded in former years at this school by Jeanette and James, his sister and brother. George intends to attend Eau Claire Teachers College for two years and then continue his education at the University of Wisconsin, where his sister is now. As yet, he has had no difficulty with any subject in college except German. He is majoring in mathematics, but has no definite plan for his future occupation. He attained this early start in college by "skipping” two and one-half years of previous schooling—one and one-half in the grades and one in high school. While in high school he maintained a high B average. He enjoys tennis, swimming, and baseball. advertising 160 Carl G. Johnson Co.

Her extra-curricular activities included her being art editor of the year book, editor of the school paper, member of the Y.W.C.A., Eurakan, an honorary literary society, a basketball and hockey team, and instructor of the Red Cross unit in her school. Many of the college activities during the war centered around work for the Red Cross. She printed the war roll call which still hangs in the school. Miss Buchholz was a student at both the Eau Claire State Teachers College and Ripon College. While here, she was a member of the Y.W.C.A. and the Campfire Girls. Much of her time was devoted to knitting to help World War soldiers. She was an active member of a college group which aided the Red Cross one night each week. Mrs. Feme Nicoles Thompson attended the University of Omaha. She served on such committees as that for establishing the school paper, choosing the school colors, and a design for the school pin. Activities of the music and literary organizations and of the girls’ athletic association and the compiling of the school’s year book were other activities in which she took part. Mr. Bridgman took part in the debate activities at the University of Wisconsin. While at the Oshkosh Normal School he served as editor of the school annual and also of the school paper.

Miss Auld was a member of a literary society, assistant editor of the year book, a member of the staff of the school paper, a cabinet member of the Y.W.C.A., and also of the French Club while attending Heading College, Abbington, Illinois. Miss Rovce did her college work at the State University of Iowa. She took an active part in the W. A.A., Y.W.C.A., the University Chorus, the Junior League of Women Voters, a literary society called the Octave Thanet Society, the debate team, and the National Honorary Dance Society called the Orchesis. Miss Sutherland, during her college davs at Grand Island College, Nebraska, served as president of the Y. W.C.A. for two years, belonged to a debating and literary society called the Amphictvon, was a member of the college debate team, engaged in oratorical contests, and served as assistant matron of the school. Doctor Schneider while at the University of South Carolina took Dart in activities of the literary society of the school. This society was one in which forensics was the major part of the program. He also was active in the Y.M.C.A., a citizenship club, was a member of the Student Honor System Committee, and acted as historian of his class. AIIV K It TISI I. 162Break Into Print Two members of the faculty, the Misses Bahr and Royce, broke into print recently when articles written by them appeared in educational magazines. Miss Bahr wrote a unit for the elementary grades entitled "Great Composers and Their Work", which was published in "The Instructor”, a magazine for elementary teachers. Miss Bahr’s purpose in writing this article was to inform other teachers of the success she has had in presenting this unit, in the hope that they may benefit. The name of Harold Hammond, the student teacher who conducted the class, also appears in the article. In the article, Miss Bahr presented the work under the following major heads: teacher’s objectives; children’s objectives; motivation; activities carried on by the children in the class; and outcomes. A bibliography of books about composers, opera stories, and instruments is also included. The article states that the result of this study was an increased interest on the part of the pupils in music, musical instruments, and the stories of great operas. Miss Royce wrote her article at the request of Mr. Frank O. Stangel, editor of the Wisconsin Physical Education Journal. She chose as her subject the recreational leadership class which she conducted the second semester of this year. In the article, Miss Royce describes the course, and gives the aims and advantages derived from studying this subject. She divides the course into three parts: (1) a study of the background of recreational problems, (2) a study of playground activities; and (3) a study of organization and administration of recreational activities. It is hoped that, through such study, college graduates will leave school better able to supervise school clubs and recreational activities. The First Periscope In 1917 a staff of six and its faculty advisor, Mr. Pope, put out our school’s first annual. It was a small volume, bound in gold construction paper and adorned with the picture of a blue periscope rising from a blue sea. "Periscope” was lettered on it in blue; a diagram on the first page explained the origin of the name through its intention to reflect school activities. A dedication to President Schofield followed the title page. The body of the book was divided into seven sections, with an advertising and humor division at the end. Features held a prominent place. Large pictures —page size—were devoted to the classes. Of course there were drawings. Cartoons were the staff artist’s specialty, judging from the results seen in the book. Many aspects of the production of the first; Periscope were quite unlike present aspects. Editor Margaret Dittmer and her staff found fewer organizations and activities with which to work. The total cost was less than half that of the 1938 Periscope. Naturally the number of subscriptions was less than half what it is now, twenty-one years later. f iiQbscfaJ Launderers Dry Cleaners 1II IE K T181 li 163Spring Sports The young men of the college successfully completed a Spring athletics program this year, according to Mr. Zorn, men’s athletic director. Training for boxers was extensive during most of the Winter and early Spring and ended in an inter-conference meet at Superior, April 8 and 9, at which Stevens Point, River Falls, Eau Claire, and Superior were represented. Eau Claire’s representatives were Donald Paffel, heavyweight division; Rolf Cramer, 175-pound class; Ross Greaser, 155 pound; and Lyle Hartwig, 125-pound class. Hartwig participated in the finals. Eighty-eight young men students participated in the ping-pong tournament. The tourney was won by Frank Auer; the runner-up was Loren Anderson. A doubles tournament was also held. The baseball team, under the direction of the all-conference basketball forward, Trygve Pederson, played eight intercollegiate games. Two games each were played with Stout Institute, La Crosse Teachers College, St. Mary’s College of Winona, and the Winona Teachers College. A bigger Spring program in football was undertaken this year because of a larger turnout than for the past several years. Track was discontinued this year because of the lack of a sufficient number of participants. A high school meet directed by Coach Zorn, district manager under the auspices of the W.I.A.A., was held for young men of class B and C schools May 13. The results qualified the winners for the state meet. An invitational one-class meet was held May 20 on the college track. Tennis games were scheduled with St. Mary’s Stout, and Winona Teachers. The winners saw action at the Stevens Point tournament. Frank Auer and Marshall Barns represented Eau Claire. Approximately twenty-five young men students competed for golfing honors. Horseshoe was also included in the Spring athletic activities. Women’s athletics consisted of extensive programs in kittenball, horseshoe and tennis. The First Year The Eau Claire Teachers College opened its doors for the first time in 1916. At that time some of the present faculty were here. These were President Schofield; Mr. Brewer, Vice President and Principal of the Training School; Mr. Bridgman; Mr. Fox, who was then teaching manual training; Mr. Simpson, who was football coach; Miss James; Miss Oxby; and Miss Thomas. The first student to receive a receipt for payment of tuition was Susan Lacey of Sheldon, Wisconsin. The first year there was a graduating class of forty-seven students. Forty-three of these were girls and three boys. Some of the outstanding students of the class were Margaret Dittmer, who is now teaching in Worthington, Minnesota; Inez Hudeman, now a critic in a state teachers college in Illinois; and Maida Hove-land, now a primary critic in the State Teachers College at Superior. The activities of the student body were almost the same as those the students enjoy today. There were several clubs, which were very active. There were parties, dances, plays, and football and basketball games. Student Council Agitation for a student council began with the Senior class of last year. It was made an issue in the Junior class election this year, and was contained in both party platforms. Cleo Herrick, Junior class president, was elected to continue the movement. After the classes had voted unanimously for a council, Herrick immediately assembled all other class presidents. John Menard, Schuyler Van Gorden, and James McDermid, presidents of the Senior, Sophomore and Freshman classes, respectively, together with Herrick and Clell Buzzell, editor of the Spectator, formed the committee to draw up a constitution. Thereupon the committee began correspondence with various colleges, including St. Olaf, Lawrence, Milwaukee, Appleton, Ripon, and Stout. Operations of the student councils in these colleges were studied. The committee then drew up a constitution and presented it to President Schofield, who consented to it with but few minor changes. The student council plan of the college calls for an organization of nine student members and a number of faculty members to be designated by President Schofield. This council will serve as a co-operative body between students and faculty in all matters relating to both. It will act as a voice to express the student’s needs and desires. Some of the duties it will perform are looking after assembly programs, bulletin boards, cleanliness in the halls, selecting cheer leaders, conducting elections, pep assemblies, Homecoming events, school parties, advising as to the school calendar, and regulating rest rooms. Truth Bill Kirscher—I left a book laying on your desk. Miss Oxby—Lying, lying. Mr. Kirscher—No, ma’m, it’s the truth. Illegible Mr. Donaldson—That’s the third time you have looked on his paper. Student—Yes, he doesn’t write very plainly. Alice in Wonderland Miss Charles (explaining a problem for the second time)—Now, children, watch the board while I go through it.

There are no Professional subjects in the first two years of the Degree Courses. The Four-year Courses with the Degree admit to Graduate Schools. All Academic Subjects are Standard Liberal Arts Subjects. All Professional Subjects are typical of Courses in Modern Colleges of Education. Courses Offered in the College Two-years for Rural Teachers Three-years for Primary Teachers Three-years for Upper Grades Teachers Four-years with B. of S. Degree for Elementary Teachers Four-years with B. of S. Degree for High School Teachers For Information Write For Catalogue or Address a Letter to President H. A. Schofield Eau Claire, Wisconsin advertisingPh. D. Degree The degree of Doctor of Philosophy is granted in recognition of high scholarship in the candidate’s chosen field, shown, first by a dissertation evincing power of independent investigation and forming an actual contribution to existing knowledge, and second, by passing an examination covering the general field of the candidate’s subject. It is always expliciting understood that the degree is not conferred on the completion of a specified number of courses, or after a given period of residence. The general requirements are: (a) Admission to the Division (b) An amount of work at the divisional level which the exceptional student may complete in five years. However, usually more time is required. Of these five years, two may be devoted to work for the Bachelor’s degree, and the third, if desired, to work for the Master’s degree. Credit for work done in other institutions may be given, if recommended and approved by the departments concerned. Residence at university of at least one full year of the three is required. (c) Examinations of ability to read German and French. Substitutions, however, may be made. (d) Preliminary examination testing the candidate’s qualifications for his candidacy. (e) Formal admission to candidacy for the deqree after recommendation by a Department and approval by the Division. ff) A program of work for the degree definitely formulated, approved by a Department, and filed in the office of the Dean. ( ?) A minimum of three full quarters of residence in the Division. (h) A satisfactory dissertation accepted by the Chairman of the Department. (g) Passing a final examination. Campus "Cases” Maybe a more appropriate title would be "In Love and Our Again”, because a majority of the "cases” are highly impermanent. After spending some time glancing around to sec who was with whom, the writer finally found that the following couples seem to have been exceedingly interested in each other this year: Dorothy Scbenthali and Earl Paape began last Christmas and are still interested. Margaret McGillvray sees quite a bit of Mr. Lindner. Eileen Carlic is interested in Mr. Mundt. By the way, they seem to have met in a sixth period speech class. Roberta Pike and Frank Matz continue to see each other often. Newell Deutschcr and Beatrice Shaucr are still in love, it seems. Newell forgot to report for practice teaching one day—why? Other "cases” that have developed this year are Knutson and Marjorie Birgc, Moore and Anna Tangen, Ted Erickson and Mary Augustine, and Harold Speckein and Doris Litchfield. Juneau and Gerry Rolland should be questioned also, as should Katharine and Elizabeth, the Hansen twins, and Hogness and Cooper. Choruses The first Eau Claire Teachers College chorus was the Cecilians, organized under the direction of Miss Grace Giberson, director of music. The organization was made up of twenty-nine girls. Its purpose was to improve the appreciation of good music, to train voices, and to bring ensemble singing to a high degree of excellence. The first president of this organization was Rudelia Neprudc. In 1922, the Cecilians had a new director, Miss Gladys Eisenhart. In the last year of the Cecilians’ existence, the organization presented "In Old Louisiana.” The first group to which both men and women could belong was called the Choral Club, and was under the direction of Miss Giberson. This club continued until 1921. Then followed the Boys’ Glee Club and the Girls’ Glee Club. In 1924, Miss Ward, the present director, joined the faculty. In 1928, Miss Ward selected the best voices from both glee clubs and formed the A Cappella Choir, the chorus of today. Attendance at Games That there is a marked increase in the attendance at basketball games when they are played at the Eau Claire High School is obvious. The seating capacity of the college gym is not adequate to accommodate those who wish to come, for only about six hundred can be comfortably seated. The high school gym will seat fourteen hundred comfortably; at the Eau Claire-Ripon game, twenty-one hundred were seated. From these figures, the difference in receipts on be estimated. There is an increase of nearly three hundred dollars when games are played at the high schi ol. The difference in attendance can be accounted for. Consider the location of the two schools. The college is on the edge of the city, one block from the bus line. On the other hand, the high school is centrally located. Artful Dodger Prueher—How is it you get in the theatre for nothing? Alley—I don’t say nothing, but I walk in backwards and the doorkeeper thinks I’m coming out.
