Break 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 163

Spring 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. A I) V E K TISIK (i 164
