Each year the Periscope records in letter-press and picture something of the scholarship and the athletic prowess at Eau Claire State Teachers College. This year the staff, not forgetting Eau Claire Brains and Eau Claire Brawn, desires also to portray with more than usual emphasis Eau Claire Beauty— on the campus, among the young women students; and on and near the campus, in the scenic charm of the school’s natural setting.
With this purpose in mind, the staff employed Mr. A. S. Ward of Eau Claire Airways to provide a series of aerial photographs to portray the scenic charm, and Mr. Bowman Larson, editor of the 1938 Periscope and now artist for the Johnson Printing Company of Eau Claire, to select and photograph eight beautiful young women students of the college. In making this selection, Mr. Larson found his task a most difficult one; for, from a multitude he could choose only eight examples of feminine pulchritude!
Hence, the Theme of this year’s annual — Beauty Hereabout. The staff hopes you will like it. The scenic photographs have been used for introductory and division pages; the Beautiful Co-eds arc to be found pictured in the Honors Section.I
Lorraine Bemenc, Eau Claire, is one of eight outstanding students chosen, on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, and service, by a faculty committee for the 1939 Periscope. Miss Bement, a student in the High School Teachers Course, has served the school in many ways, including for two years the assistant editorship, and the editorship the last semester of this year, of the Spectator. However, she has qualities other than unusual editorial and scholastic ability that make her outstanding. Perhaps chief among these is a sympathetic, understanding, and unselfish attitude that merits the admiration of all.
Clell Buzzed, Winter, is a Junior in the High School Teachers Course. He has been an outstanding editor of the Spectator and is Sports Editor of this year’s Periscope. Next year, he will enter the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism to prepare for a career for which his dependability and leadership fully qualify him. A brilliant student and a keen observer, Clell has qualities which make him an outstanding student and insure success in anything he undertakes.
Elmer Chickering, Eau Claire, was the Committee’s choice as another of the outstanding students. He is a Senior in the Elementary Degree Course. Last year, he received an Elementary Grades Diploma, and was among those who won Senior Scholastic Honors. A World War veteran, he has shown ability in lending his greater experience in solving the problems of readjustment to college activities. Especially proficient in debate, Mr. Chickering has played an important part in making Eau Claire State Teachers College debate teams victorious in tournaments.
The fact that Alice Jcrmstad, Ossco, is an unusually capable student is not the only reason the Committee chose her as the outstanding student receiving this year the Primary Grades Diploma. Her dependability and ability to lead both those she teaches and her fellow students is shown by her work in the Primary Club and on the Periscope staff. Besides being a leader herself, Miss Jermstad can just as easily help carry out the plans of others. Loyalty to every project she undertakes and the ability to do thorough work have made Alice one of the most capable students of the school.

Herbert Juneau, Eau Claire, is well-known to both the students and faculty of the college. A Senior in High School Teachers Course, he has been especially active in music. He has been a tireless worker in the A Cappclla Choir, and this year organized the College Singers into a very efficient chorus. Perhaps his success in these and other activities may be largely attributed to the attractive personality and spirit of good fellow-ship that make it a pleasure to work with him.
Vcrnmi ll imlii‘r ‘
Although Vernon Rambcrg, Thorp, obtained a teaching position in the Augusta High School shortly before the end of the first semester, he deserves to be. chosen as an outstanding student for this year. Besides being interested in other activities, he represented the school in an interpretative reading contest last year. The first semester this year he was Advertising Manager of the Spectator, and was very active in the 1938 Periscope circulation drive. Besides being outstanding in extra-curricular activities, his friendly and helpful spirit made him popular with faculty and students alike.
P«Ki Tvrrlvei v
Had high scholarship been the only basis on which the Committee chose these outstanding students, Frances Russell, Cadott, would still qualify. She is an outstanding student of the Rural Department. Besides active membership in the Rural Life Club, her activities have included the Periscope staff and the Y. W. C. A. cabinet. Her dependability and originality arc shown by her leadership in extra-curricular activities. Her friendly spirit and pleasing personality have made her many friends in and out of college.
Maxine Shaker, Eau Claire, is a Senior in the Elementary Degree Course. She merits being chosen an outstanding student because, among other qualities, of her friendly disposition and her keen interest in everything she undertakes. She is not only a good student but also is always eager to co-operate with others and to improve herself, qualities which should go a long way toward guaranteeing a successful future for her. Besides these qualities, Miss Shaker’s kindly humor and her ability to sec others’ points of view will long be remembered by the friends she has made in college.

The criteria of beauty are not easy to determine, and the task of selecting eight young women of the student body of the Eau Claire State Teachers College to represent the feminine beauty of the school was made especially difficult by the great diversity of opinion as expressed by those whose views were considered in the selections made.
The Periscope is proud to present these young women as representative of Beauty on the Campus of the college.
Elizabeth Lucia’s pensive beauty is supplemented by a spirit of good sportsmanship and friendliness that have placed her high in the regard of her fellow students.
MARY |ANE LEINENKUCEL
The quiet and dignified beauty of Mary Jane Leinenkugel can be but a reflection of a mature mind and a serene nature.
The ideal co-ed and Susan Powell are identical in many minds, for Sue’s beauty and her gay disposition have endeared her to many.
A typical Irish beauty is Kathleen Tierney, whose sensitive, romantic features proclaim her a true daughter of Old Erin.
A half-smile and a far-away look lend glamour to the vivid personality of Deste Boehrer.
The vital charm that is so closely identified with the loveliness of Alice Wilk is an expression of an altogether attractive and wholesome personality.
MARY LANE ASHRAlKiH
Mary Lane Ashbaugh’s piquant charm has found expression in her vivacious personality and ready wit.
Laughing eyes and lips accentuate the charm of lovely Patricia Smith and make her wholly attractive in everyone’s eyes.HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER’S DEGREE

PiiK« Forty-oneOne hundred thirteen students are enrolled as Sophomores in the High School Teachers’ Course. In this group there are three times as many young men as young women students. In other words, eighty-six of these Sophomores are young men, whereas only twenty-seven are young women. The popularity of the course has declined somewhat among young women because of the wider opportunities for placement offered by other courses.

Pa«e Forty- lxMabf.l Chipman, M. A.
ACCOUNTING CLERK Umv r»ity of Wisconsin
Miss Chipman’s position is a civil service one; her work is that of financial secretary. The budget, vouchers, expenditures, supply orders, collection of fees, authorization of payment of bills, classification of finances by state classifications, and other similar matters make up her duties. She finds the personal element because of her connection with an educational institution pleasant; she "prefers dealing with people to dealing with papers,” she says.
Iva Holbrook, (Mrs.)
ASSISTANT CLERK STENOGRAPHER Eau Clair Hij;h School
Mrs.Holbrook is MissChipman's assistant. Her duties include recording receipts, assisting with N. Y. A. reports, dealing with alumni records, filing and supervising the mimeographing work that is required for the faculty. Her work with the student files—including health blanks and other student data—is the most extensive of all of her many duties, although filing of general information records for the school is not the least of her work.
Geraldine Wing, (Mrs.)
JUNIOR CLERK STENOGRAPHER Eau Clair Butintu Coll g
Mrs. Wing looks after the correspondence of both President Schofield and Dr. Wallin, Registrar. She also has charge of assembling and recording grades, handling telephone calls, locating persons in the college, and issuing papers relating to transfers. She finds the keeping of all of the many varied kinds of student records and the secretarial work for President Schofield the most important feature of her work, as these duties keep her well occupied most of the time.
Carmen Krammes, (Mrs.)
SECRETARY TO MR. McPHEE Eau Clair High School
The work done by Mrs. Krammes is secretarial, as she looks after the correspondence of Mr. McPhec, Director of the Training School, as well as all Training School records, Practice Teachers’ marks, and Senior and Alumni credentials. Although her work is heaviest in February, the new system of handling credentials in groups of five has lightened her labors in that line.

The Young Women’s Christian Association earnestly endeavors to be the organization its name implies. Its membership is made up of more than one hundred sincere, enthusiastic young women who are striving to adhere to Christian ideals.
Seeking to provide a challenge for the undertaking of worthwhile work that needs doing, the "Y” every year promotes such activities as a Mothers and Daughters’ Banquet, a Candlelight Service and a Christmas Party at which "Y” girls show themselves to be friendly "Big Sisters” to underprivileged children throughout the city. At Thanksgiving and Easter, the organization conducts religious services in the college auditorium for the student body.
In carrying out a program that will promote social contacts and developc attributes of leadership through participation in organization activities, a Girls’ Prom, a Style Show, a Hostess Tea, a "Get Acquainted” Party, hobby parties, a World Fellowship Supper, and a Fall Banquet and a Spring Picnic are held annually. The popular Girls’ Prom is reigned over by a "King” and "Queen” chosen by "Y” members. The Style Show is an effort on the part of the organization to show what is good taste in clothes for the college girl. At the Hostess Tea, girls have an opportunity to become acquainted with the community’s outstanding women. By these activities the Y. W.
C. A. seeks to bring into close fellowship all the young women on the campus in an effort to serve the college, the community, and one another.

Twenty-two years ago—on May 17, 1917—the girls of the then Eau Claire Normal School met with Miss Richardson, a Y. W. C. A. Field Secretary, to plan the organization of a chapter here of the Y. W. C. A. As a result of this conference, sixty-one girls became charter members, and elected for their president Geraldine Marshall.
The first social event was a farewell party the Y. W. C. A. girls gave for all of the Senior girls shortly before Commencement. The activities of this first year consisted largely of regular devotional meetings and occasional teas following special talks by outside speakers. Elii Otteson was sent as the first delegate from the Eau Claire College to the Y. W. C. A. camp at Geneva, Wisconsin.
As the years passed, the Y. W. C. A. added to its programs the beautiful Candlelight Service, the Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet, and a Girls’ Prom.
The Y. W. C. A. here has done a great deal to advance the religious, the social, and the physical welfare not only of its members but of the entire school.
Much of the success of the Eau Claire chapter has been due to its former and present faculty advisors, among them Miss Morrow, Mrs. Flagler, Miss Oxby, Miss Kennedy, Miss Buchholz, Miss Sutherland, Miss Sparks, Mrs. Thompson, and at present, Mrs. Ramharter.
The Eau Claire organization should be and is proud of its many years of service. The number of members admitted each year has increased from sixty-one in 1917 to one hundred twenty this year, making it one of the largest organizations of the college.

The policy of the Women’s Athletic Association is to promote a program of activities which wijl reach all the young women students of the college and result in enjoyment, development of good health, sportsmanship, physical efficiency, and leadership.
Any college needs a sane program of recreation to balance the strain of a busy academic life. It is for such a purpose that the W. A. A. offers a varied program of activities and changes these activities according to the growing needs of the students.
The sports activities of the W. A. A. are divided into those of three seasons — Fall, Winter and Spring. The major tournament in the Fall is for volley ball; the minor tournaments are for deck tennis singles and horseshoe singles. Basketball, together with ping pong and deck tennis, arc the major sports of the Winter season. During the Spring season, kittenbail and tennis tourna ments, as well as a track meet, are held. In addition to these sports the girls are encouraged to participate in unorganized activities such as hiking, skating, golf, and bicycling. For taking part in these unorganized sports, the girls receive credit toward various awards they may earn. The awards are pin, guard, letter, sweater, locket, and cup.

Beta Upsilon, the youngest professional club of the college, was organized as the Grammar Club in the Spring of 1931. At first, the members of the club and the faculty advisors were both from the Grammar Grades and Junior High School Teachers Courses. At this time, members are students taking the three-year Intermediate and Upper Grades Courses and those working for an Elementary degree.
The purpose of Beta Upsilon is "to further the professional interests and to enrich the social life of all eligible students of the college.” Both of these aims are adequately cared for in a well-planned program of activities that continue throughout the year.
The social activities of the club began on October 6 with a "Silver Coffee” for all girls taking the courses indicated and the members of the faculty. Coffee and doughnuts were served in the girls’ lunchroom.
A party and business meeting for members was held every month. At these parties a short business session was held, and the rest of the evening was devoted to games and cards. On Nt vember 14, the club held its annual Thanksgiving party.
The club entertained the faculty at a Christmas banquet held at the Methodist Episcopal Church, Eau Claire. A supper meeting was held at Buri’s bakery in mid-winter. Cards and games were played.
The club is always willing to cooperate with the rest of the college in all-school activities. The club’s Homecoming float carried the slogan "Put Stout in the Doghouse.” A clever skit was presented during the Periscope circulation drive this Spring. The last event of the school year was the club’s annual picnic. The former Grammar Club became Beta Upsilon late this year.

The Primary Club was organized November 10, 1926. Practically all of the students of the 1926 Junior Class taking the Primary Grades Course became members of this organization. Its purpose from the beginning was to advance the interests of the students of the Primary Department in every way possible and to bring about a closer relationship between students and teachers.
At the beginning of each year the members customarily arrange to hold one social meeting each month—either a dinner, an evening party, or a picnic. For this purpose, a general social committee is appointed, which in turn, appoints a committee to plan each meeting, one member of the general committee serving on each sub-committee.
The club has shown a fine spirit of co-operation, and through the efforts of its members has contributed much to the welfare of the school, proving that a college can provide satisfactorily social and other extra-curricular advantages.
Miss Dahl, Miss Foster, Miss Nash and Miss Sparks, all of the faculty, arc honorary members of the club.
The first event of the present year was a tea, at which Primary Course Freshmen were guests of honor. The next month a "hobby” party was held at the home of Betty Giles. Refreshments were served. A Halloween party was held in the gymnasium at which fortunes were told and games played. The girls also held Thanksgiving and Christmas parties and a Spring banquet.

Shortly after the Eau Claire Teachers College was organized, the need for a rural life club was felt. Thus the Rural Life Club was organized. It has become one of the strongest organizations in the school.
All students who are taking the Rural Course automatically become members of the club. Every effort is made by the advisors and leaders of the organization to draw members into active participation. In previous years meetings have been held the last Tuesday in every month. This year, the monthly meetings are held on days convenient to the members.
The Rural Life Club exists for the benefit of the rural students and those with whom they will come into contact as teachers. The organization attempts to socialize the students and to fit them into the atmosphere of the college. At the meetings of the organization, an effort is made to develop the potential talents within each individual for the benefit of himself and those in whose community he will teach. Time is devoted to training the students to assume leadership and responsibilities in the communities. It is thought that it is the duty of these future teachers to give the communities a broader outlook on what constitutes best rural living. The students are acquainted with the knowledge necessary to the conduct of business meetings in community clubs— knowledge that will be of value to them.

The Crusaders Club was organized in 1922 primarily to foster all-school activities and to give some tangible form of recognition to those students who have taken an important part in school activities. It is an honorary society, the qualifications for membership being based on scholarship and participation in school activities such as athletics, student publications, forensics, music, and class affairs.
Since its organization, when Frank Farr was the first president and Mr. Simpson the first faculty advisor, the club has striven to promote good fellowship among the young men of the school, and to serve the college by inducing high school boys of ability to enroll.
To qualify for membership, a student, after having been in school two semesters, must be recommended by a member of the faculty as being outstanding in scholarship. Further, candidates must be voted upon by the members before being formally introduced into the club. This introduction takes place at the beginning of each semester and is in the form of a rousing initiation.
Each week during the college year a business meeting is held at which activities of the club are planned. This year, these activities have included a Halloween all-school dance, a turkey "raffle,” supper meetings, and two banquets. The Crusaders have also been instrumental in inviting outstanding students of high schools in surrounding communities to attend Teachers College basketball and football games. The purpose of this was to interest prospective college students in our college life.
Guided by Mr. Simpson and Dr. Davenport, faculty advisors, the club has carved for itself a real place in the life of the college.

Eleven years ago the De Chatillon Club was organized at the Eau Claire State Teachers College under the advisorship of Mr. Milliren and Mr. Bridgman of the faculty. The thirty-seven charter members elected as their first president Thomas Beebe. One of the first activities of the club after its organization was an entertainment at a luncheon on March 17 of the eight high school basketball squads that were entered in the district school tournament here that year.
During these eleven years, De Chatillon has built up a program that has benefited the whole school as well as its members. This year’s activities have included a "smoker” at the beginning of each semester, a Thanksgiving dance, the Christmas dance in cooperation with the Amphictyons, "Tanglefcte,” the pre-Easter dance and a scavenger hunt. At the close of each year the advisors, Mr. Milliren and Mr. Bridgman, sponsor a dinner dance for the members and their guests.
The purposes of De Chatillon arc to promote an interest and a loyalty to the Eau Claire State Teachers College, to stimulate athletic, social, and intellectual activities of the school, to help maintain a high standard of morals among the student body, to try to interest good students of neighboring schools to attend our college, and to foster patriotism for our country.
The club chooses its members by majority vote. Then, after a semester of probation, the prospective members take the oath of the club at a banquet held for that purpose. This is said to be a solemn and impressive event.
De Chatillon has won for itself a place of high esteem in the college.

Amphictyon, honorary scholarship society, was organized in 1934 by a group of young women of the college. Under the new organization this year, all young men and young women students of the Junior and Senior classes who fulfill the scholarship requirements for membership arc automatically admitted. This reorganization was completed last March with the approval of President Schofield. A faculty committee composed of Miss Sutherland, Miss Sparks, and Mr. Milliren are the advisors.
The standards of the organization are as high as those of national honorary fraternities. This standard requires each member to have an average of ninety for two and one-half years of college work and to be outstanding in some extra-curricular activity. This limits the membership to only second-semester Juniors and Seniors.
The purpose of the organization, besides being a means of recognizing those outstanding in leadership and scholarship, is to promote loyalty and high moral standards among the student body.
Ic is an established custom of the organization to help sponsor one large social function during the year. This is the annual Christmas party, which is held the week before Christmas recess for all the students. It is one of the best social events of the year, and each year it is improved.
On March 28, the society held a banquet, at which time the necessary changes in the constitution and plans for the remainder of the year were decided upon. A banquet was also held in May as a final event of the year and a farewell to the Seniors.
The total membership, including the alumni, is seventy-three.

To further the interest of students in dramatics, Strut and Fret was organized in 1928. Mrs. Ramharter, now a member of the college faculty, was the first president. Under her leadership and with the help of Miss Jackson, of the faculty, the club successfully completed its first year and was well started on the road to becoming the popular organization it now is. The official name given the new dramatics club was Strut and Fret. The name is from Shakespeare—"A poor player who struts and frets his hour upon the scene and then is heard no more.”
As then, the club does not now offer membership for the asking, but the candidates are made to show their ability and willingness to work by presenting readings in the auditorium before a group of judges. Only those who are recognized as having ability are admitted to membership.
Strut and Fret has won for itself the active interest of the student body. Members are taken in twice a year. Supper meetings are held each month, with programs consisting of book reviews, pantomimes, readings, and summaries of plays. The aim of these programs is the further development of self-confidence, stage presence, stage technique, and the art of make-up. Each year Strut and Fret prepares and presents to student audiences at least two major productions and several one-act plays which are sent out to neighboring communities as well as to Eau Claire civic organizations for presentation. In fact, Strut and Fret constantly follows a policy of co-operation with all college and civic groups asking for assistance in dramatics.

The Speech Association is one of the most active clubs of the college. Its purpose is to develop ability in and afford opportunities for students to participate in debate, oratory, oratorical declamation, dramatic declamation, humorous declamation, extempore speaking, and interpretative reading. Not only arc contests held in each of these seven fields but the members also present programs over WEAU every fourth Monday and appear in public programs.
Debate ranks among the most important of these activities. The question debated this year was, "Resolved, that the United States should cease to use public funds for the purpose of stimulating business."
The first debate tournament of the season was held at Stevens Point December 10. Each team taking part participated in three debates. Eau Claire entered eight teams.
Eight or ten colleges were Eau Claire’s guests at the annual midwinter tournament held January 21. Each college entered two teams in the Class A and Class B divisions. In the B division Eau Claire was ranked first, and in the A division second.
On February 2, 3, and 4 Eau Claire representatives attended the annual Red River Valley Intercollegiate Forensics Tournament held at Moorhead, Minnesota.
Two teams participated in the St. Paul • St. Thomas debate tournaments February 27 and 28 and March 1. In March River Falls conducted a debate tournament for all teams not entered at the tournaments at Moorhead and St. Paul. The Peace Oratorical Contest was held in March for the purpose of selecting a representative for the state contest. Eau Claire was host at an invitational tournament held in April. Contestants in all forensic fields except debate participated.

The Science Club, organized in 1931, is for all students, except Freshmen, who major or minor in Science and are interested in current scientific activities.
The club has one party a month, at which a local speaker working in a scientific field imparts to the members some of his experience 3nd observations.
The club early in the year heard Mr. Chester, chief chemical engineer at Gillette’s, speak on the rubber industry. Another meeting was held at the home of Edna LcDue, where cards and games were played and lunch was served, after which a business meeting was held. A Northern States Power Company representative spoke at another meeting.
The informal activities during the year included a skating party, weiner roasts and a toboggan party. After the toboggan party, members assembled at the home of Marjorie Edington.
In former years the club had even more diversified interests than now. Several years ago the club’s radio division formed a separate organization. The Science Club, however, still deals with problems in biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics.
Members made several field trips during the year to observe practical applications of subjects being studied. These trips included a visit to the Gillette Rubber Company’s plant as well as to those of the Eau Claire Paper, the Wisconsin Telephone, the Pressure Cooker and the Northwest Motors Companies.
Various former members of the club have progressed admirably in some phase of this field.
Junior McCoy is in the employ of the government. Wilbur Bridgman is a chemistry instructor at the University of Wisconsin, George Brown is teaching chemistry at the University of Colorado, and Donald Aires is working for an advanced degree in Science at the University of Minnesota.

The History and Social Science Club was organized in 1937. Under the leadership of Don Kelley, Clyde Gallagher, Marguerite White, Lillian Svengaard, and Jerome Hendrickson, a survey was made in the college to find out the number of students whose major or minor was social science. It was found that more than fifty percent of the students were so enrolled.
With this information in hand the club was soon organized. Social Science and history students enrolled in large numbers. After the members had considered a number of constitutions of similar clubs in other schools, a constitution was adopted.
The organization has filled a need of the students by promoting discussion of history and social science problems, for the purpose of the club is to promote an active interest in such problems.
The activities of the club arc varied. Discussion meetings are held twice a month. Preceding each meeting an announcement of the topic to be discussed is made so that each member may become informed in order to take part in the discussion. Refreshments are served at these meetings.
In cooperation with the Eau Claire County Peace Council, radio programs have been broadcast over WEAU. Debates, orations, and plays have been used on these programs. Jerome Hendrickson and Lillain Svengaard were sent last year as the club’s representatives to the Madison State Peace Conference. These students on their return gava interesting reports of the conference.

The Newman Club, one of the largest organizations of the college, was organized in 1916. In 1935 the club was organized, and also became federated with the National Association of Newman Clubs.
The club purposes to promote friendship, unity, and charity among its members and to further the spirit of co-operation with the other organizations of the school.
Although the club was organized principally for Catholic students, membership is open to anyone among die students. The membership includes a representation of all the classes of the school, and various religious sects are represented in its membership.
The first meeting this year was held in the college for the purpose of selecting officers. Elected were George Carroll, President; Kathleen Tierney, Vice President; Clyde Gallagher, Secretary; and Robert Kolstad, Treasurer. Miss Thomas is the Faculty Advisor, and a priest from St. Patrick’s Church is the Spiritual Advisor.
Monthly meetings are held at which programs are presented on timely topics relative to Catholicism. The talks are made interesting and valuable for all members of the club; creeds are kept out of the discussions. At one business and social meeting held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, the Jewish question was discussed, after which there were dancing and refreshments. A discussion was also held at Buri’s bakery. At this meeting, games were played and refreshments were served.

Lc Troupelet Francais, or the French Club, is cne of the most active organizations in the college despite the fact that it was organized only in 1933. Under the leadership of its successive presidents—lone Flatland, Leonard Hass, William Brunstad, Maxine Otis, Don Kelly, and Jane McAulcy—the club has constantly endeavored to promote a greater interest in French among the students of the Teachers College and to give these students a better understanding of French customs and manners. Membership is open to all students who have studied or who are studying French and are interested in becoming better acquainted with the French language and people.
Each year the club has monthly meetings planned to provide a sufficient variety of types of entertainment to interest everyone. The club is noted for the good times which characterize meetings, due to the effort of its members to converse in their adopted tongue.
Much of the success and popularity of Lc Troupelet Francais is also due to the guidance of Mrs. Ayer, who has been the organization’s advisor since its first appearance in college life here. Beginning the current school year with a highly successful Mardi Gras school dance, Mrs. Ayer and the officers have brought the club successfully through another college year.

The Lutheran Students Association was organized in 1935. Its purpose is to create good fellowship among the Lutheran students of the school and to further the spirit of cooperation with other organizations of the college.
Although the association was organized principally for Lutheran students, membership is open to anyone among the students. The membership numbers eighty-two, which makes it one of the largest organizations in the school. This membership includes representation in all the classes.
The organization is affiliated with the National Lutheran Students Association and sends delegates to the college regional conventions held each year. In 1935 this conference was held at St. Olaf’s College; and in 1936, at Stevens Point. Schools from Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North and South Dakota are usually represented.
The association holds two meetings each month. These meetings—a discussion meeting and a social gathering—are usually held at the Lutheran churches of Eau Claire.
The first meeting this year was held at the college for the purpose of selecting delegates to the regional convention at St. Peter’s College. The delegates selected were Ruth Musum, Alfred Hjcm-boc, and Karl Melz. At the next meeting a constitution was adapted and reports on the St. Peter convention were heard. Since this time several interesting discussion meetings have been held.

The Radio Club, originally a division of the Science Club, became a distinct organization in 1932. It is composed of those young men students who arc actively interested in radio work. However, students to become members need not be enrolled in the radio class taught by Dr. Judd, the club’s advisor.
A regular meeting of the club is held each week during the college year. At these meetings problems in the construction of radios and transmitters are discussed. This year as a project the members of the club co-operated in the construction of a transmitter exciter for use in broadcasting. Members have communicated recently with several foreign stations as well as with many in the United States. Some of the countries student operators have contacted are Mexico, Chile, Canada, Cuba and Australia.
Several of the members of the club have passed the examination given by the Federal Bureau of Communication and are now licensed operators. Among these are Dr. Judd and Steven Marzyski, whose call numbers are W9VSG and W9KBI respectively.
Besides its work with radio construction and operation the club also functions as a social organization. In addition to several social gatherings limited to the members, it has acted this year as sponsor of an all-school party held in the college gymnasium.
An organization such as the Radio Club plays a vital part in the extra-curricular activities of a college. It offers an opportunity for radio-minded students to exchange information and to co-operate in radio and transmitter construction. The students also gain a working knowledge in the application of the laws they have learned in their study of physics and radio.

The Blue and Gold football team of the Eau Claire State Teachers College completed a 1938 season of only fair success, winning two of its seven games. One victory came in conference competition against Stout and one in a non-conference game with Oshkosh.
With eighteen lettermen back from the preceding year, Coach Zorn before the season opened expressed optimism as to the season’s prospects. At the same time he acknowledged that competition would be keener than in previous years. The addition of Whitman Rork, former Minnesota fullback, as assistant coach increased Eau Claire hopes for a good season.
When forty-five men reported to Coaches Zorn and Rork at the opening of practice, the lack of good reserve material was at once apparent. Later on when injuries took a large toll of key men, this defect became more apparent.
The first game of the season saw Eau Claire bow to a more powerful Macalester eleven, 18-6, after playing it on even terms during the first half. The Twin City team pushed through a sluggishly charging Eau Claire line for two touchdowns to break a 6-6 tie of the early stages of the game.
The Zornadoes lost their second start to Duluth Teachers, 12-0, in a game that proved extremely costly. Injuries to Perry, Freshman back, and H. Kolstad, regular right halfback, put both men out for the remainder of the season. Frequent fumbles kept Eau Claire from gaining consistently, while the strong Minnesota team scored twice on pass plays.
Against Oshkosh the following week the Zornmcn completely outplayed a heavier but slower opponent to score their first victory 6-0. Lack of consistent drive cost Eau Claire chances for several touchdowns, but the running and passing of Lee behind a much improved line were encouraging.
In the opening conference game at River Falls, the Falcons got off to an early lead, scoring two touchdowns in the first half. They kept Eau Claire back in her own territory most of the game, and won by a score of 13-0.
The Homecoming game with Stout saw the Zornadoes at their best form of the season. Capitalizing on Stout’s misplays and showing a powerful running attack, Eau Claire scored two touchdowns in the first quarter and added a remarkable fifty yard field goal to make the score 16-0. Stout took the offensive in the second half with a fine passing attack, but failed to score.
Fighting to stay in the conference race the Bluegolds went to Superior, October 28, only to fall before the powerful Yellowjacket running attack 21-0. Injuries cost the invaders several outstanding offensive and defensive men, and the defeat dropped Eau Claire from the conference race.
The final game of the season, played in a blinding snowstorm ar Carson Park, November 4, saw the Zorn-men drop a disappointing game 6-0. LaCrosse, although outgaining Eau Claire decisively in this game, scored only on a sixty-yard runback of a punt.

The squad as a whole played well, considering its lack of weight and reserve material. It was primarily a defensive squad, one that outfought heavier opponents to stave off one-sided defeats several times. Good punting aided Eau Claire in her defensive play.
On offense the squad depended upon its two leading ground-gainers, Lee and Soley, with occasional aid from Rudd, Mundt, and the Poquettes. Forward passing was only fairly successful, and lack of blocking cut the effectiveness of the running attack.
Perhaps the most outstanding development of the season was the rise of Johnny Lee, left half, playing his first year of college football. Impressed by his early-season form, Coaches Zorn and Rork groomed him for the important left half post. His clever broken-field running, his accurate passing, and his speed made him the spearhead of the Eau Claire offense. Although playing in only two conference games because of injuries, he was chosen for the all-conference first team as a halfback.
Chet Soley, Jack Brushert, Hugh Horswill, Howard Stai, and Harold Cooper received all-conference second team ratings. Soley, outstanding as defensive fullback, carried the brunt of the offense after Lee went out with injuries. The whole left side of the Eau Claire line— Cooper, Brushert, Horswill, and Stai—was selected for all-conference honors for defensive work and consistent play during a gruelling season.
Rudd, an end, later shifted to right halfback, provided one of the most sensational plays of the season. He booted a fifty-yard field goal from an acute angle in the game with Stout. Rudd led the Eau Claire scorers with ten points. H. Kolstad, Knudson, and Lee each scored one touchdown.
Mundt, regular quarterback whose field generalship and punting made him valuable to the team, and M. Poquette, light but versatile back, played good ball. In the line, Walworth and Peterson, first-year guards, R. Anderson, end, and Kopplin, tackle, were consistent performers.
Twenty-three men received letters for their play during the season. They were, at end—R. Anderson, Stai, Plett; tackle—P. Anderson. Kopplin, Horswill; guard—Knudson, Brushert, Malen, Walworth; center— Cooper, Peterson; quarterback—Mundt, Wrigglesworth, R. Kolstad; right halfback—Rudd, H. Kolstad, Larson; left halfback—Lee, Pederson, G. Poquette; fullback— Soley, M. Poquette.
Five regulars of the twenty-three men receiving letters will be lost by graduation from the 1938 squad. They arc Cooper, center; Co-captain Quick, guard; H. Kolstad, halfback; and Kopplin, tackle. With the line hit heaviest by graduation, Coach Zorn must develop a pair of tackles, a guard, a center, and two back field men to make the Bluegolds conference contenders next year.

GORDON POQUETTE HALFBACK
HALFBACKWhen Gus H. Fan looks back over a recently completed season of his favorite team, he no doubt has a composite picture of football as the spectator secs it. He remembers the flashing action, the colorful bands, the tense moments, the “breaks”, the victories and defeats that make football the great spectacle that it is.
But to the players, coaches, and trainers, the games arc the culmination of a long grind of practice sessions three hours a day, five days a week, for two months during the fall. It is in these practice periods that the player’s attitude toward the game is really shown. With this idea in mind, the photographer has caught the college squad in a number of action pictures, shown on this and the following page, that typify the player’s football season.
When a squad of forty-five men report to practice, the coaches are faced with many problems. To minimize injuries, the entire squad must be driven to peak condition. Fundamentals such as blocking, tackling, running, passing, and kicking must be taught and improved. Team play, shifts, signals, and formations must be planned and drilled until they arc second nature. Finally the competitive spirit must be instilled in the team.
Punting, the best defensive weapon in football, requires constant drill. R. Kolstad, Pederson, M. Poquette, Cooper, and Mundt, shown at the right, top picture, in punting drill at the practice field, concentrate on form and power in their punts. In the game, punting is more than getting the ball over the heads of the charging linesmen. It means knowing when to kick and where to kick—high spirals with the wind to give the ends a chance to cover, low end-over-end kicks against the wind, away from the safety man, or into "coffin corner.”
Running plays require complete precision in the backficld and accurate blocking to get even to the line of scrimmage. Eau Claire’s "pony” backficld—Lee, Perry, Larson and R. Kolstad— were "snapped” as shown in the second picture from top, page 78, as they ran through an off-tackle play without opposition, to get their assignments. Lee, receiving the ball from Cooper at center, starts to the right behind three men. Kolstad "wedges” the defensive end outside the play, Perry cross-blocks the tackle, and Larson leads the ball carrier through the opening to take out the defensive secondary.
The Minnesota shift and system of crossblocking, introduced here at the beginning of the season, required considerable practice to function effectively. The shift, designed to put the players at the most advantageous position to block out
Page Srvcnty-eightdefensive opponents, was suitable, but good blockers, speedy enough to be valuable, were lacking.
Forward passing, the most effective scoring play in modern football, gets much attention in practice. Coach Rork—see third picture from top, page 78—is pictured demonstrating how passes should be thrown. Receiving the ball from Cooper, he fades back and rifles it downfield to a receiver while Pederson, Larson, Wrigglesworth, Lee and Perry watch. The ball in flight can be seen in the right background.
Tackling must be accurate and deadly to cut down hard-running, shifty backs. The linesmen especially put in many hours at the tackling dummy, practicing for form and accuracy. Under Coach Zorn’s supervision—note bottom picture, page 78—Butler hits the dummy as Walworth, Rudd, Hatch, Horswill, Walker, Stai, Olson, P. Anderson and Heideman watch.
The action pictures, reproduced on page 79, of the Eau Claire-River Falls game, which River Falls won 13-0, show three plays that make football the spectacular game it is. In the top picture, "Hooker” Kolstad, back to kick near the Eau Claire goal line, was photographed while getting off a punt in the face of a River Falls’ linesman’s determined charge. Larson, River Falls No. 32, has just missed blocking the ball, which can be seen in the air. Rudd and Larson, Eau Claire backs, have blocked out Falcon linesmen to protect the punter. The line of scrimmage is at the extreme right in the picture.
The second picture from the top, page 79, shows the other end of a similar punt play. Eau Claire had just kicked from her own twenty-yard line, to mid-field. The two ends, Plett and Anderson, wide on punt formation, arc covering the receiver, along with Horswill, tackle, and Malen, guard, just visible at the extreme right.
The third picture on page 79 of the River Falls game is of the end of a completed pass that gained the Falcons about fifteen yards. From the line of scrimmage, indicated by the head linesman's position, Blank, River Falls back, has just faded back and passed down field. Plett and Horswill, attempting to block the pass, are on the ground near midfield. The receiver, downed at the sideline, has been driven out of bounds by Eau Claire tacklcrs.
In the bottom picture shown on page 79 are, left to right, Dahl, trainer; Hogness, assistant manager; W. Larson, manager; and McKernon, assistant manager. Dahl, trainer, had charge of medical supplies and first aid for injuries. Larson, manager, issued uniforms and equipment and was in charge of the stock room.

Winning the co-championship of the Northern Division of the Teachers College Conference and competing in the National Intercollegiate Basketball Tournament at Kansas City, Mo., the Eau Claire Teachers College had a successful 1938-1939 basketball season.
The Blucgold squad, coached by Mr. Zorn, won twelve of seventeen games during the season and six of the eight conference games, to tic for first place in the conference race. In the post-season tournament at Kansas City on March 13-14-15, Eau Claire was eliminated, 39-30, in the first round by Southwestern College, the second seeded team of the tourney.
Chosen as one of the thirty-two outstanding teams of the nation’s accredited four-year colleges, Eau Claire was the only college team to represent Wisconsin at this tournament. Such teams as Wayne University, Murray, Ky., Teachers, Jordan College, Southwestern College, Winona Teachers, and St. Mary’s College played in the tournament.
Seven veterans from last year’s team that swept through eight straight conference victories and won sixteen of eighteen games, reported for practice in November. They were Lehman and Carroll, centers; Pederson, Krenz and Kolstad, forwards; and I.arson and Hogness, guards.
A number of Freshmen and one transfer student with college experience completed the 1938-1939 squad.
Rowe, Hancock, and Johnson, from Eau Claire High School; Zctzman and Saunders, from Fall Creek; and McKernon, transfer from Stout, won berths on the squad. Fagerland, Mondovi High School; and Peterson, Eau Claire, joined the squad in mid-season.
The opening game of the season, in which Eau Claire crushed a weak Concordia team of St. Paul, 76 - 9, produced the team’s highest score and largest margin of victory. Two games were won by singlepoint margins—one from St. Mary’s, champions of Minnesota’s collegiate conference, 35 - 34, and the other from Oshkosh, Southern Division champions, 25 - 24.
A twenty-one point score against Illinois Normal University was the Bluegold’s lowest score for the season, in a game lost 33-21. The other non-conference loss was at Jordan College, 43-31. A two-game road trip into Michigan during early January brought Eau Claire two victories, over Northern Michigan Teachers, 58-34, and Michigan School of Mines, 53 - 37. The Zorn-men defeated Kalamazoo College, early season opponents of Notre Dame University, 33 • 28, at Eau Claire.
For the seventeen games of the season, the Eau Claire team scored 707 points, for an average of forty-two a game. Her opponents scored 561 points, an average of thirty-three.

In eight conference games the varsity team scored 345 points, an average of forty-four a game. Conference opponents averaged thirty-five points a game, or 280 points.
In conference play, Eau Claire defeated Stout and LaCrosse twice and split even with Superior and River Falls. Starting out on the home floor, the Zornmen won four consecutive games, defeating their conference opponents, Superior, LaCrosse, River Falls and Stout, in order.
At River Falls, the team lost a 40-38 game for the first conference loss in twelve games over a two-year period. Superior, improved by the addition of two stars, handed Eau Claire her second set-back, 44 - 33, and tied for the lead. Faced with a possible loss of first place, the team rallied to beat Stout, 46 - 30, and edged out LaCrosse in the final game, 38 - 32. Superior, who also won six games and lost two, shared the championship with Eau Claire.

The Eau Claire offense, a smooth short-passing game, placed the scoring on Lehman, center, and Kolstad and Pederson, forwards. Lehman, whose height gave him control of rebounds on both back-boards, scored with amazing precision on tip-ins and short shots. He scored 186 points in seventeen games for an average of eleven points per game.
Pederson, speedy forward, was second in scoring, with 139 points. His running mate, Kolstad, was third with 94 points, and Johnson, a Freshman, totaled forty-nine. The rest of the scoring was divided for the most part among Hancock, Larson, Hogncss, and Carroll.
Two members of the squad finished their collegiate basketball careers and will be graduated in June. They are Kolstad,regular forward,and Carroll, reserve center. With four regulars and a number of capable reserves back for next year, Coach Zorn looks forward with optimism to another successful season.
The Teachers College B squad also completed a good season, with a record of six games won ;ind two lost. The team was coached by Hugh Horswill, star tackle of the college grid team.
The B team defeated Eau Claire St. Pat’s C. Y. O., Augusta, Alma County Normal, Elmwood, and the Coca Cola and Gilson Coal teams from the Eau Claire Y. M.C. A. senior league. It dropped games to D Tog-gery and Sterling Paper of the same league. The team scored 253 points to 199 for its opponents.

JACK HOGNESS Guard
Walter ("Dodo”) Lehman, rangy Blucgold center, was the leadng scorer for his team and for the Northern division. He was chosen all-conference center for the second consecutive year. His height gave him command of rebounds, and he scored with uncanny accuracy on follow-in shots. "Dodo" also played a smooth floor game and was invaluable on defense.
Trygve ("Trig”) Pederson, the fastest man and cleverest ball-handler on the squad, won much praise for his play despite a mid-season slump. He played an outstanding floor game and gave the team much of its drive and scoring punch His push-shots from the free-throw circle were deadly.
Howard ("Chick") Koistad, the best "team" player on the squad, was outstanding as a "feeder" and a ball hawk. Although well up in the scoring list. "Chick" was of most value for his aggressive floor play. A Senior, he ended his collegiate career.
Jack ("Streaky") Hogness showed the fine defensive play that has made him a stand-out at guard during the past two years. He is a Junior from Shell Lake, well over six feet, and a dependable scoter on set shots.
Coach W I.. ("Bill") Zorn coached his Blucgold team to its second Northern Division title in a row. With four regulars and many reserves back for next year, he
looks forward to another successful season. A graduate of the University of Chicago, "Bill” has become a fixture at Eau Claire Teachers college.
John Hancock, small but speedy forward, impressed coaches and spectators with his drive and eye for the basket. A Freshman, he has three more years of competition. He was alternated at both guard and forward.
Don Rowe, another veteran of Eau Claire high school’s class "A" consolation state championship team, will be a valuable man for the next few years. A good ball-handler and an excellent floor-man, Don was also alternated at forward and guard.
Harold ("Otto") Peterson, although not reporting for practice until mid-season, soon became one of the most dependable reserve guards on the squad. His rebound work and inclination to mix in and scrap, offset any lack of polish, and his aggressivr play in the back court was a big factor on the defense.
Arnold ("Mack") McKernon, a transfer from Stout Institute, played flashes of fine ball at forward. Although finding difficulty in accustoming himself to the Eau Claire style of play, he showed the ability that made him one of Stout’s leading scorers. Arnie has two years of competition left.

Wnyne ("Lars”) Larson, perhaps the finest defensive guard in the conference, won praise on his ability to stop opponents' fast breaks. His specialties were to block dribble-in shots and intercept short passes on set plays. A Junior, "Lars” will be back next year to team with Hogness at guard.
Norman ("Deacon”) Krenz, a former all-state plrtyer from Fall Creek, hardly lived up to his pace of last year. A dependable bail-handler and a dead shot, however, he will be groomed with Johnson to fill Kolstad's forward berth next year.
Wallace ("Unc") Johnson, a Freshman forward from Eau Claire, hit his stride at the beginning of the conference season. Developing a deceptive fake and a hook shot, he soon became, next to Lehman, the team’s most dependable scorer.
George ("Mike") Carroll, veteran center, played first-rate ball all season. Good enough for a first-string berth on most college teams, he was a valuable reserve for Lehman. Tip-ins and hook shots were his specialties. A Senior. "Mike” finished his basketball career.
Newell ("Fag”) Fagerland, Mondovi high school
center, was transferred from the "B" squad to the varsity in mid-season when Zetzman dropped from school. Rangy and a good man on rebounds, he developed fast and will be Lehman’s understudy at center next season.
Frank ("Wrig") Wngglesworth, small but sturdy guard, saw considerable action in early season games. Handicapped by lack of height, "Wrig" nevertheless played a hard, aggressive floor game, and his coolness under fire made him a valuable man.
Charles ("Chuck") Saunders, member of Fall Creek’s state tournament finalists for two years, showed the makings of a good college calibre player. Although not seeing much action, he has height, shooting eye, and drive, and will figure in Coach Zorn’s plans for next year.
Bart Hewitt, trainer for the team, saw to the physical condition of the players. He gave first aid to injured players and aided Coach Zorn in keeping the varsity in top form through a grueling schedule.
Rdssell ("Rusty") Clarke, team manager, had charge of all equipment and uniforms for the Bluegolds. He also helped make arrangements for road trips and aided in the accommodation of visiting teams at Eau Claire.

Ok om Mk. ATHLETICS
The purpose of the Women’s Athletic Association is to stimulate in the young women of the school participation in sports, to encourage habits of physical activity, and to promote ideals of sportsmanship.
In the Fall, when the weather permits, tennis and horseshoe tournaments are begun. Rainy weather this year cut the horseshoe tournament short and permitted very little tennis to be played.
Indoor organized activities during the year consisted of deck-tennis, volleyball, ping pong, and basketball, the latter two being continued throughout the year. Betsy Jones and Doris Johnson were the runners-up in the deck-tennis tournament. Doris Johnson was the winner. Three teams competed for volleyball honors. Each team played every other team twice. "Dode’s Dodoes”, Doris Johnson, captain, were the victors. Ping pong schedules were continued throughout the year.
Members of the W. A. A. are required to devote c minimum of fifteen hours a quarter to unorganized sports, which are those for which the association conducts no tournaments. A "play day" was held twice this year, at River Falls and at Eau Claire, to create a friendly spirit of rivalry among the girls of the two schools.
Awards according to the number of tournaments participated in were made at the annual banquet. These awards are a pin, guard, letters, sweaters, lockets, and cups.
Every Fall may he heard the merry ring of horseshoes thrown from stake to stake by feminine contestants striving for honors. The horseshoe courts are across the creek from the school, and near the running track. Pictured above, top picture, left to right, arc A. Brown, D. Johnson, G. Hanson, and D. Bassette.
On pleasant Fall and Spring days gym classes arc held out-of-doors. Immediately above, the Misses Norheim, Bassette, Peterson, I ianson, Al-cott, Olson. Kippenhan, Cronk, Frantz, Badman, l.ucia and Rumery are watching the Misses Bra-zeau, Cooper and Bullis decide the team that is to bat next.
Tennis at Eau Claire Teachers College is among the girls major sports. As pictured above, Doris Johnson’s serious expression denotes keen competition, the game to be neither won nor lost without a struggle. Beatrice Shaw, on the left, is her alert and capable partner.
Besides enjoying various types of athletics, members of the W. A. A. must be good sports about fulfilling initiation requirements. The beaming new members above are, top row — Brown, Olson, Cooper; middle row — Bassette, Lucia, Olson. Badman. Hullberg, and Alcott; front row— Anderson, Rumery, Brazeau, Frantz, Kambach and Cronk.

Each year the college debaters use as their topic the Pi Kappa Delta debate question. This year the question was, "Resolved, that the United States should cease to appropriate public funds lor the purpose of stimulating business.'
Students who wish to be on a debate team were requested, although not required, to enroll in the semester course Argumentation and Debate. Since Freshmen can not receive credit for the course they are permited to audit it.
Alter a series of practice debates, fourteen debaters went to the Stevens Point State Teachers College on December 10 to take part in a debate tournament there. Eau Claire's four men’s teams and three women’s teams won forty percent of their debates in this first forensic meeting of the season.
Through a series of trial debates two "A" teams were selected. On January 13 and 14 these teams debated at Normal, Illinois. Entered in the "A" division were Elmer Chickering and Harold Holtz. They won three out of six debates. Jack Ockerlander and Jerome Hendrickson contested in five debates, in which no decisions were rendered.
One of the outstanding events of the debate season was the annual midwinter tournament held here on Saturday, January 21. Teams from Carleton, Hibbing Junior College, Macalester, Mankato, Stevens Point, St. Thomas, and River Falls were entered. Carleton won the "A" tournament. Eau Claire placed second with sixty-three per cent. It placed first in the "B" tournament, winning seventy-five per cent of its debates. At the close of four rounds of debate, all debaters and timekeepers were guests of the college at a banquet held in the college cafeteria.
On February 2 and 3, the two "A” teams debated at Moorhead, where they won sixty-seven per cent of their debates in competition with some of the best debaters in the Middle West. The same two teams debated here on February 13 with two St. Thomas teams in non-decision debates.
On Saturday, February 18, three River Falls teams came to Eau Claire for practice debates.
On the following Saturday, Eau Claire debaters went to River Falls for a tournament.
The last intercollegiate tournament of the college year was held at St. Thomas and St. Catherine’s in St. Paul. Two men’s teams composed of Chickering, Holtz, Ockerlander, and Hendrickson debated at St. Thomas. Eau Claire rated well in this tournament.

Forensic activities this year started early in the first semester when students interested in forensic work selected declamations and orations and began practice under the supervision of Dr. Davenport and Mr. Donaldson of the faculty. These students, together with extempore speakers and debaters, were sent out in response to requests made by neighboring organizations to appear before parent-teacher meetings, church affairs, and so forth. Radio broadcasts were also a feature.
The Speech Association also sent out speakers to high schools in nearby communities to speak to high school Seniors on courses offered at the college and activities open to students here. This was part of a program to interest young people in this part of the state in Eau Claire State Teachers College. Some of those who took part in this project were Dorothy Peterson, Eleanor Peterson, Phoebe Millard, Virginia Smith, Dolores Chaput, Ira Hudson, Jerome Hendrickson, Clarence McDonald, and Marion Roberge.
Early in February, training began in all forensic fields to prepare students for the elimination contests held at the college on April 1, 13 and 18. These contests selected the school’s representatives for the inter-collegiate tournament held here on April 29. Because of the enthusiasm shown by neighboring colleges, the Speech Department plans to make this meeting a regular feature of the college year. Colleges that made early entries this year were River Falls, Hamline, Bethel, Superior, and St. Olaf.
In the preliminary contests, any student in school was eligible to compete. In these contests the divisions open were learned oratory, original oratory, peace oratory, humorous declamation, serious declamation, extempore speaking, reading of prose, and reading of poetry.
In extempore speaking, the subject for discussion was "The Theory and Practice of Compensatory Spending as Illustrated by the United States Government.” Thus same topic served as the debate question for the college this year.
The peace oratorical contest was held April 13 to select the entrant for the annual state contest held on April 20 at Beloit. The Eau Claire representative competed with students from many of the large schools of the state. Last year, Don Paffle, who won the Eau Claire contest, placed third in state competition. This year the winner was Cleo Herrick, but because he had once represented the college at a state peace contest, Elmer Chickering, second place winner, became Eau Claire’s representative at Beloit.
I'asrc Ninety-fiveThe debate teams representing Eau Claire Teachers College ranked high in the third annual Mid-Winter Debate Tournament, held here January 21, by taking second place in the "A” division and first place in the "B" division. In the totals, Eau Claire tied for first place with Carleton, first in the "A” division.
Eight feams took part in the tournament: Carleton, Hibbing Junior College, Macales-ter, Mankato, River Falls, St. Thomas, Stevens Point, and Eau Claire.
The Eau Claire teams, winning twelve out of sixteen rounds of debate, scored a total of seventy-five points. St. Thomas was second in total number of points.
A banquet followed the tournament, at which Ira Hudson presided and Mr. Donaldson, debate coach, led in group singing.

In 1928, the Eau Claire State Teachers College hand, which previously had been directed by students, came under the supervision of Miss Ward, Director of Music. The band with a membership of fifteen was very active that year, playing at games and student mass meetings.
In 1931, the ”Bluc and Gold Band,” as it was called, appeared in some snappy "pep” programs. This band consisted of seventeen members. By 1933, the membership had increased to thirty-three. Virginia Weeks led the band that year.
The band was reorganized in 1936. It was composed that year of thirty-five members.
In 1936-’37, Mr. Harris was employed to direct the band, then consisting of twenty-two members.
This year, the band has fifty-one members. Every four weeks it broadcasts over WEAU. It played in the Homecoming parade this year, and at all the home football games. In addition to this, trips were taken during the football season. Several concerts in other towns were also undertaken.
The dream of the band is to have a new building on the campus to include an elevated stage and broadcasting facilities with sound-proof construction. This would certainly make a vast difference in the ability of the band to perform over the air.
During the time that Mr. Harris has directed the band, about a thousand dollars worth of instruments have been purchased. With this equipment and the two drum majors, Kolstad and Fagcrland, the college feels that it has a real band. Kolstad, first drum major, has received firsts in twirling in the district and the state. He also tied for fourth in the Chicagoland Music Festival in 1936. Fagcrland is assistant drum major.

The A Cap pell.i Choir was organized at the beginning of the 1928-1929 college year. It was composed of eighteen voices, chosen by Miss Ward, Director of Music. The Choir sang, as the name indicates, without accompaniment. The Choir assisted that year in the Christmas Pageant and in "Christmass F:vcrywhere.” It also gave a Christmas program at the Mount Washington Sanitorium, Eau Claire.
Although starting with but few of the preceding year’s members in 1930, the Choir was soon developed by Miss Ward. It made its first appearance before the Northwestern Wisconsin Teachers’ Association at the city auditorium. The Choir also entertained the students of Stout Institute.
The Choir’s membership was limited to forty in 1932, a number maintained since then. In 1933 the organization presented "Ifits”, an original musical comedy. The proceeds paid the Choir’s expenses for a week’s stay in Minneapolis, where the members were the guests of the National Federation of Music.
In 1934 the Choir’s entire membership were the guests of the Illinois Federation of Music Clubs at its World’s Fair Convention. The Choir sang in the Court of the Hall of Science and broadcast over the World’s Fair system. It also gave a fifteen minute program over WLS This program was placed first by a radio critic of the Chicago Daily News in his day’s "Pick of the Air.”
Included in the organization’s program for 1935 was a broadcast over WTAQ. In 1936 the Choir attended music conventions in Chicago and Minneapolis.
Activities for 1938-1939 included regular radio broadcasts each month over WEAU. For the Christmas program it broadcast with the school as an audience. The Choir also brought to Eau Claire Jessica Dragonette, the popular American soprano. The proceeds were used to send the Choir to New York in May, where it sang at the World’s Fair.

The Men’s Glee Club was organized several years ago by Miss Ward, Director of Music. Although some years have elapsed since the time when there was no Men’s Glee Club in the school, new interest was taken by the young men last year in choral work. As a result, the club was reorganized, and Miss Ward was able to develop an excellent group of male singers. To her efforts as leader and the willing co-operation of the group, go the credit for the fine work that has been done.
The Club is closely affiliated with the A Cappclla Choir because it is composed of the male students of the Choir.
In 1926, the club presented the operetta "Gypsy River.” In 1927 it appeared several times: with the Girls’ Glee Club, as the Mixed Chorus in the Christmas cantata, and on the Commencement Program. The following year some of the outstanding members were Ruggles Monroe, George Johnson, Harry Werner, Gerald LaDukc, and Victor Carlson. In 1930, the young men put on a musical skit, "Romeo and Juliet," before Christmas. Robert Gunn was. Juliet and George Johnson a very "romantic” Romeo.
Twenty-two members are doing four-part singing in this year’s club. These students practice twice each week. The club has broadcasted twice over WEAU from the college auditorium. It also helped make the college Armistice Day program a success by singing on that occasion.
The club has also helped this year to make the A Cappella Choir one of the very best. The club docs not receive as many invitations to sing as do other music groups, yet it has done its share in making the year a most successful one, both musically and financially. All of the requests for musical numbers were met with willing compliance, and delightful programs were presented.

The appearance of Miss Jessica Dragonette, famous lyric soprano of radio and the stage, climaxed the winter activities of the A Cappella Choir when "the little girl with the beautiful voice" was presented to music lovers of Eau Claire and vicinity in a concert at the city auditorium on the evening of January 9. Before a capacity audience, Miss Dragonette sang a perfectly balanced program of Italian, French, German, and English selections, closing her performance with "Swanee River.” She will long be remembered in Eau Claire not only for her exquisite voice, but for her charming and gracious manner as well.

The second year of weekly broadcasts over WEAU started soon after the opening of college last September. The time from nine forty-five to ten-fifteen each Monday morning was generously donated to the school by WEAU station officials. The broadcasts issued from the college auditorium. Herbert Juneau was student announcer again this year.
The first series of broadcasts was presented by the A CappcIIa Choir under the direction of Miss Ward. Variety was the keynote of the broadcasts. One consisted of solos; another, of hymns; in another, the Choir sang with the Male Chorus; several programs featured the Choir. The special broadcast of the year was a Christmas Cantata by the Choir. These broadcasts were especially helpful to the Choir in preparation for the Spring tour.
The second series of broadcasts was presented by Strut and Fret, under the direction of Dr. Davenport. These programs this year consisted chiefly of one-act plays, and declamations both serious and humorous. The dramatization of a scene from the Senior Class play, "Digging Up the Dirt,” was presented to advertise the play to the public.
The third series was by the college band under the direction of Mr. Harris. These programs consisted of band music, with occasional solo parts by various members of the band.
The fourth series was presented by the Speech Association, under the direction of Mr. Donaldson. A varied program was offered, including declamations, orations, extempore speeches, and debates. Many members took part in more than one of these types of broadcast.
The picture at the top of this page was taken during a debate. In the picture, left to right, are Ockerlander, Hendrickson, Chickering, Mr. Donaldson, and Holtz. The top picture, at the left, is also of a debate. Holtz, Mr. Donaldson, and Hendrickson are shown. The bottom picture is of an "Armistice Day Peace” broadcast featuring Crawford, Hendrickson, and Hudson.

IIROADGASTINGThese broadcasts from the college this year served a three-fold purpose. They offered opportunities to students to develop special talents; they furnished entertainment to the listeners; and they helped to advertise Eau Claire State Teachers College to the public in this vicinity.
On this page appear pictures of ’'Strut and Fret" broadcasts. The top picture is of a one-act play. Those participating were, back row, left to right, George Kunzelman, Don Hanson, and Philip Barnard; front row, Dorothy Neuman, Agnes Klima, Janice Duxbury, Margaret Hartung, Thea-dore Biesterveld, and Tom Merrill. The bottom picture, right, is of a broadcast sponsored by the Eau Claire Peace Council. Shown in the picture, left to right, are Bob Crawford, W. E. A. U. announcer, Dorothy Lowe, George Kunzelman, Arthur Padrutt, Bernard Collins, and Mary Lane Ashbaugh.
The second picture from the top, right, is of a broadcast of a serious declamation, "The Pool,” by Marian Roberge. Other declamations featured on Speech Association broadcasts have been "Nora Has Her Picture Took,” by Evelyn Kacding; "The Leader,” "Willie’s Dress Suit,” and "The Blessed Damosel,” by Virginia Smith; and an oration, "All Hope Abandoned,” by Edward Donnelly.
In extempore speaking, Richard Lund, on "The Future of Labor,” Jerome Hendrickson, on "Youth Looks At Peace,” and Elmer Chickering, on "The Present European Situation” were broadcast.
In the field of music, several students have been featured in solos by A Cappella. Among them are Betty Bartingale, Elaine Butler, Lois Juneau, Ruth Alban, Herbert Juneau, and Sylvester Gullickson. The band has presented several programs—Paul Jevne, in a trumpet solo, Jack Bullis and Ted Gleitcr, in a trombone duet, and Clifford Brown, Jack Bullis, Ray Craemcr, Clell Buzzed, Harold Instefjord, and Ted Gleiter, in a brass sextet.
Various other students were given the opportunity to appear on other programs, an experience that probably will prove very valuable to them in later years.

February 13 was the day of the annual Y. W. C. A. Girls’ Prom. This year the gymnasium was decorated in honor of that romantic gentleman, St. Valentine. In tune with the paper hearts that swayed from the ceiling were the fluttering hearts of the maidens who were escorted by their best girl friends in men’s attire. "King” Kaeding and "Queen” Nogle led the dancing, for which Earl Hazen’s orchestra furnished the music.
This was the one big event of the year in which young men students took no part. The fortunate, or perhaps unfortunate, "gentlemen” of the evening got their chance to experience the responsibilities of an escort.
The Prom was considered a success, no doubt because of the efforts of the girls in charge. Eileen Garlic and Delores Gilchrist had charge of the election of the "King”; Ruth Cooke, of decorations; Dorothy Dodge, of music; Alice Alcott, of refreshments; and Althea Slagg, of incidentals. The climax of the evening was a floor show featuring talent from the College and the Training School.
Despite the cold wave, which threatened the success of the "swing” sponsored by college radio station W9WND, the loyal supporters of school activities turned out February 20. To the rhythm of Gene Kay’s orchestra, "the jitterbugs went to town.”
Grammar Cluli Supper
Members of the Grammar Club held a meeting at Buri’s Bakery February 24, where they enjoyed a chili supper. Eileen Garlic, Delores Gilchrist, and Maxine Shaker prepared the meal. After supper, Miss Auld, the club’s faculty advisor, gave a very interesting description of her recent journey through the countries of Southeastern Europe.
Science (Hull Dance
For those who don’t observe Lent too strictly, the Science Club held a collegiate "get together” Thursday, March 2, in the college gymnasium. A new feature of the party was the ten cents—no more—that was charged. This was made possible by the use of popular recordings instead of hiring an orchestra for the dancing. For those who didn’t care to dance, Chinese checkers were available.

Eugene II. Mcl'liee
Director of Training School
Principal Elk Mound High School
Eugene R. McPhce, pictured at the left top of the page, was recently-appointed Director of the Training School of the Eau Claire State Teachers College. He is an alumnus of this college, as he was graduated from the former three-year High School Teachers Course in 1923, and from the four-year course in 1931. In 1934 he received the Master of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota.
Charles Emery, pictured at the left, is also an alumnus of the Eau Claire Teachers College. He was graduated from the High School Teachers four-year course in 1931. He then received a position in Granton, Wisconsin, to teach in the fields of social science and history. In 1935 he was appointed to his present position at Elk Mound, Principal of the High School.
The picture at the bottom of the page is of the study hall at Elk Mound. It has a small stage for speaking, skits, and stunts. In the rear of this room is the school library, which is provided with well • selected books.
Every Senior of the High School Teachers Course receives a part of his or her training at the Elk Mound High School, where he or she teaches for a period of six weeks.
The training received is very helpful. It consists of teaching a minimum of two classes and supervising the study hall one period each day. Other experience consists of leading round-table discussions, at which a great variety of professional subjects arc discussed, such as discipline, professional ethics, motivations, and character education.
The field of education in which practice teachers are trained are English, history, science, mathematics, social science, and physical education. The selection of the practice teachers for these subjects depends upon their majors and minors in the subject fields.
Clarence McDonald, a student teacher, is shown at the top of the page and to the right conducting one of his classes. In the second picture from the top of the panel are pictured the student teachers who taught at the Elk Mound High School the afternoons of the first six weeks of the present college year. They are, from left to right, Douglas Loomis, who taught biology and world history, Norman Backus, chemistry and geometry; Herbert Juneau, English, Junior business training, and physical education; and Clarence McDonald, geography and English.
At the bottom of the page. Director of Music Mr. Arthur Howe is shown directing the Elk Mound High School band in the Community Hall. Band practice is held each Monday and Thursday of the school year. Mr. Howe also directs other bands. The band is one of the chief extra-curricular activities at Elk Mound. 'ualnina

The faculty of the Elk Mound High School, pictured at the top of the panel at the left, consists of Mr. Halms tad, Mr. Emery and Mr. Gordon, top row, and Miss Schmidlin and Miss Lobdcll, bottom row. All with the exception of Mr. Gordon, a graduate of the Stevens Point Teachers College, are products of the Eau Claire Teachers College. Mr. Emery, the Principal, teaches a class in United States History.
Mr. Halmstad teaches General Science, Economics, Speech, and Geography. He also directs dramatics and coaches debate. The dramatics activities include the Junior and Senior class plays. Debate has been untried before this year, but Mr. Halmstad expects to accomplish much along this line.
Mr. Gordon teaches Physics, Algebra, Geometry, and Chemistry. The second picture from the top to the left is of his chemistry class. The students arc Addell Halverson, LeVern Meyer, and Charles Dodge. Mr. Gordon also coaches the basketball team.
Miss Lobdell teaches English II, IH, and IV and Junior business training. She is the advisor of the weekly school paper, the Moundscope.
Miss Schmidlin teaches World History, Current Problems, Citizenship, and Biology. The bottom picture on this page shows Mr. Loomis, a practice teacher, and Orrin Dahl, a pupil, reciting. Miss Schmidlin is in charge of the Boys’ and the Girls’ Glee Clubs, which participated in the Christmas program, an operetta, and the music tournament at Eau Claire in the Spring.
The 1937-1938 school year saw the establishment of practice teaching at the Elk Mound High School for the Seniors of the High School Teachers Course. The Seniors arc taken to Elk Mound in a car provided by the State. Eight to ten Seniors teach at Elk Mound during a six weeks period. The experience gained is varied. The minimum amount of teaching is two class periods. The experience obtained is in the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior classes in English, Science, Social Science, Physical Education, and Mathematics.
Since so much is included in this short period of time, the practice teacher is credited with teaching one semester. The high school faculty supervises the practice work. Mr. McPhee and Miss Thomas, of the college faculty, are in charge of the practice teaching at Elk. Mound.
This arrangement between the two schools is advantageous to both. The practice teacher receives training in a typical small high school, and the high school has the use of more modern equipment. Many of the textbooks and much of the supplementary material used are from the college library.
The Elk Mound School houses in a modern building all the grades, from the first through the high school. Rural students are brought from the surrounding country in buses.

7 LITTLE KEN
Pnice One Hundred Thirty-eiicht(ImaoI
At present seventy-three students of the college are enrolled in the two-year Rural Course. Of these, twenty-four will complete their training in June of this year, and will receive their diplomas enabling them to become teachers in rural schools of the state. It is highly probable that next September will find each graduate secure in a position as a rural teacher, because placement within the Rural Department in past years has been almost one hundred per cent of the graduates.
During the two years spent in preparation for rural teaching, each student devotes six weeks to practical experience at two near-by rural schools. In the second semester of his Freshman and in the first semester of his Sophomore year, the rural student teacher works three weeks with the regularly employed teachers of these schools to obtain worthwhile practice and first-hand experience in dealing with rural-school problems.
The two schools in which rural students practice are the Black School and the McKinley School, both located in the Town of Seymour. The Black School is a regular one-room country school; the McKinley School has two rooms and seats more than eighty pupils. Student teachers 3rc sent to these schools two at a time, to work with the regular teachers in class management, instruction, pupil guidance, and playground supervision. At the Black School, Mrs. Madison is the teacher, and at the McKinley School Miss Gladys Bergstrom and Miss Olga Pederson are in charge.
Some rural work has always been done at Eau Claire Teachers College. After the discontinuation of the Eau Claire County Normal School, the regular rural teachers’ training course was established in the college here. At first, the course comprised only one year’s work, but three years ago it was extended to consist of two years. Within this time, some four hundred fifty students have been graduated from the rural course. Of these, about one hundred fifty are still teaching in Wisconsin in schools located in Vilas, Oneida, Sawyer, Taylor, Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, Pierce, Pepin, Eau Claire, Clark, Jackson, Trempealeau, Buffalo, and Juneau counties. Counties represented by rural students now in training arc Vilas, Barron, Taylor, Chippewa, Dunn, Pepin, Eau Claire, Clark, Buffalo, Trempealeau, and Jackson.
The pictures in the panel at the left are of the playground activities at the Black and the McKinley Schools.

FA ft One Hundred FortyYOUR OPINION ?
Does the world owe a person a living, regardless of his or her character and training ? Ten students were interviewed on this question.
Their replies were as follows:
Delores Gilchrist — "No, a man should he a benefit to society and not a detriment.”
Louise Halvorscn — "No, a person should be made to work for his living because his work takes the responsibility off society and the person himself will have better character for having worked.”
Charles Brown—"Yes, the world owes everybody a living, because through the evils of some men, other men have to suffer and are deprived of a relatively high standard of living.”
Helen Haanstad—"No, because the object of a person’s life should be to serve.”
Mary Wright—"No, because everyone has been given different abilities and talents and it is the duty of everyone to use them to the nth degree.”
Marjorie Jenks—"No, the world is made up of
people, and if everyone is to expect it to provide him a living, who is going to make the living?”
Murcile Anderson—"No, a person should work for his living.”
Jack Ockerlander—"I believe that the idea of the world’s owing everyone a living can be accepted by civilized persons only if they consider that the obligations are two-sided affairs. Definitely, the recipient of that so-called living owes society, in exchange, his concerted and wholehearted efforts to make the world a better place in which the social group may dwell.”
Jean Couture — "No, a person should get only what he works for.”
Ruth Babcock—"No, the character of each individual should be so trained that he desires to become a socially responsible individual and willing to contribute his part to the improvement of the community of which he is a part. The only person the world owes a living is the person who, because of physical or mental handicap through no fault of his own, is incapable of taking care of himself.”

Tiiko One Hundred Forty.fiveThere is only one real reason for changing tread designs of tires, and that is to obtain new efficiency. To get new efficiency in a tread requires tire engineering experience. Yes, Gillette has some new treads, hut they are designed by craftsmen who have introduced many of the most important tire improvements of all time ... and improvement is not only in the tread but throughout the tire.
The new Gillette Taciturn and Ambassador Tires have treads designed for today’s high speed cars and quick-acting brakes. The Super-Rib Truck Tire combines quick-acting center grip with extra side traction. The Super-Traction Tire stays in the line by popular demand. It is the original lugged-tread tire, and its phenomenal success on country roads continues to win approval.

According to Miss Lefvander, college nurse, influenza is an epidemic caused by the baccillus influenzae. It is characterized by a pain in the head or eyes and a distressing fever. Mild cases may resemble a cold, with fever and aching, and often there is a pneumonic involvement. Besides this, pleurisy or ear involvement may follow this disease.
Cases of influenza should always be reported to the State Board of Health. Children having it are to be excluded from school.
The general treatment is rest in bed, plenty of fresh cirrus fruits, fluids, a nourishing liquid diet, and good elimination.

KISSES IN PLAYS
A member of the Faculty and a prominent Senior were interviewed on this question—"Should college girls kiss college boys in movie-star fashion in college plays ? ” Their replies follow :
Miss Sutherland—"Many things are done for the sake of art. These can be done without harm, but it is well to know that many movie stars who find themselves in the situation of having to yield to the necessities of their profession, seldom make a success of themselves and are rarely happy.”
Hugh Horswill—"No, I do not think that the kiss should be of movie-star kind, because a kiss is sacred—something that should not be taken lightly but thought of as a token of true love.”
