Life Goes To College
Life goes to college — our college, Eau Claire State. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes are the harbingers of the impending return to school. The tree-lined driveways and the quiet hallways of the campus welcome the return of activity which the bustling students give them. Apprehensive freshmen explore the spots which arc to become familiar to them — the classrooms. Old Main, the Little Theatre, dorms, lounges, and South Campus. The "oldtimer" upperclassmen arc reunited in the Blugold Room. The increased enrollment brings class conflicts, long tally lines, and bulging classes. The oncc-quict campus becomes alive — classrooms arc busy, the football field is battered by Blugold scrimmages, the dorms and houses are a confusion of unpacking students. The 1957 Periscope would like to present life at Eau Claire State in 1956 and 1957.
The Administration Building, better known as “Old Main” is the hub of activity at WSCEC. Classrooms, the Union, the Blugold Room, the auditorium, the cafeteria, the bookstore, and the publications offices, as well as the library and administration offices make this building a busy place.Not only beautiful, but a perfect spot for picnics, recreation, and lounging. South Campus provides Eau Claire students with a place to take advantage of the outdoors. Taking advantage of the Student Government picnic given during orientation week arc beanie-sporting freshmen. Marlys Larson, Betty Borne, and Audrey Schultz. In the background can be seen the barracks which serve as classrooms to accommodate the swelled enrollment.
Home base for band, orchestra, and choir in addition to music classes is this remodeled music building. Strains of Sousa and Sibelius drift from it as future musicians learn the “know-how" of music.Physical
The center of WSCECs athletic program is the physical education wing of the multipurpose building east of Old Main. A structure that combines beauty with utility, it is the home of many championship Blugold basketball teams. It is transformed into a ballroom for the annual Junior Prom and provides room for all-school convocations.
Fortunate are the students who receive elementary education training here. The observation deck which allows students to observe classes without disturbing them is a unique feature of this especially-designed building.
Broadway is transplanted to the college stage in this almost ideal setting. Guide Bill McGinnis is shown outside the I.ittle Theatre with Katy, Janis, and Jim. Students of drama and radio find here an excellent opportunity to learn by doing.Women’s
A second home for out-of-town girls is this dormitory, completed last year. Housing 138 girls, it is also the scene of dances, teas, and other social activities. Comfortable. cheery rooms make staying at the dorm a pleasure.
Home away from home for some of the male population of WSCEC is Memorial Hall, formerly a women's dorm. It houses 60 men. and the downstairs rooms are used for social gatherings, as in former years.
Framed by evergreens and bushes, this women's residence provides for six girls' living quarters. Conveniently located at the edge of the parking lot. it is close to campus facilities.
ML IINo freshman escapes convocations since 85% attendance is required for graduation. The singing of the Alma Mater, here sung by Nancy Newburg. Carl Anderson. Irving Brown, and Mike MacKany. is a fitting closing for each convocation.
ALMA MATER . . .
Of all the schools within our state We love the gold and blue.
For there are none can hope to rate Our college dear with you.
The Chippewa River pays thee homage Bowing low before thy feet.
And the scene it stirs out heartbeat
Which the bluffs, the trees, the meadows make complete.
And wc thy loyal sons and daughters Our love and fealty will swear
To thee our Alma Mater,
Our college of Eau Claire.TABLE OF CONTENTS

The first convocation of the year featured the Pittsburgh All-University Tamhoritzans. Here they do a spirited Slavic folk "dance to the lively accompaniment of guitars and tamboritzas.
The girls’ vocal group of the Tamhoritzans sings a plaintive folk tune of the Balkan countries. Attired in native garb they presented authentic songs and dances to a receptive audience.

TAMBORITZANS APPEAR; LUMBERJACK JUMP HELD
September social events were highlighted by the annual convocation featuring the Tambo-ritzans und by the Lumberjack Jump. The Tamhoritzans, a group of college students from Pittsburgh, include Rau Claire on their return trip to Pennsylvania from their summer camp in Minnesota. This year’s program had a rock and roll number as an added attraction. The Lumberjack Jump, sponsored by Phi Sigma Rpsilon, national social fraternity on campus, had Indian Summer weather for its affair. Coeds in Bermuda shorts were an asset to the scenery.

BLUGOLDS SURPRISED BY ST. NORBERT’S
Eau Claire’s Blugolds lost their opening game of the 1956 season 26-7. They took a commanding 7-0 lead, but after that, the Knights lived up to their name by scoring four consecutive touchdowns. Eau Claire, losing the ball nine times, six on fumbles,
three on interceptions, permitted the DcPerc team to score all four directly or indirectly on these breaks. Little did the Blue and Gold know, as they walked downheartedly from the Carson Park field, what thrills and chills the season held.

Blugolds Win Dad’s Night Game
A scrappy Stout “11" gave the Eau Claire Blugolds a brief scare in a game that the Olsonmcn had to come from behind to win. Leading in the first half of the game 6-0, the Blucdevils of Stout played heads-up ball; in the third quarter the Blue and Gold turned the tables on them. First Jim Gleboff, Blugold halfback, raced 37 yards to tic the game at 6-all. A few minutes later Eau Claire’s big fullback Hcssler smashed the Bluedevil line and rolled 26 yards to put Eau Claire ahead 12-6. Once again the Blugolds scored on a TD plunge by Ted Devine. The final touchdown went to the Blucdevils to terminate the scoring at 18-12.

Eau Claire took command of the conference lead with River Falls and Platteville with the closest battle of the season, a five-point margin over Milwaukee 20-15.

34BLUGOLDS UPSET RIVER FALLS
Five thousand breathless fans sat through a furious display of football fireworks at the Eau Claire-River Falls game; only after a grueling struggle did the Eau Claire team triumph 35-21. The bristling Blugolds were paced by Don Pierce, Jim Bollinger, Ted Devine. Jerry Berseth. and Bob Hesslcr. The fourth quarter told the story as they scored two touchdowns. Bollinger to Berseth for 40 yards and Bollinger to Devine with Messier's conversion put the miracle men out of reach.

"Agonizing” is the one word describing the Blugold-Indian battle. It was Ade Olson’s Cinderella team that ground out victory in a heroic effort to retain the conference lead. The chagrined La Crosse fans saw their Indians lose the first football game to Eau Claire since 1948. Hessler of Eau Claire scored the game’s first touchdown with a two yard smash; halftime showed La Crosse leading 7-6. With a minute remaining, the mortified Eau Claire rooters saw La Crosse drive to a few short feet of the goal line, but time ran out. The Blugolds took a well-earned 12-7 win.

best parade, too. Led by the Blugold Band, the parade stretched down Barstow Street, colorful and exciting. It was something to be proud of — remember?

Eau Claire Squashes Oshkosh in Homecoming Game
Jim Bollinger, senior quarterback (13) barks out signals to his poised Blugold teammates.
The Blugolds crushed the Oshkosh Titans 28-13 with well-knit offensive and defensive plays. This time the alert Eau Claire team jumped to a 16-7 halftime lead and then widened the margin with two more touchdowns in the second half. Blugold quarterback Bollinger connected on 10 of his 19 passes and once again Don Pierce was the defensive standout. The victory, while maintaining Eau Claire’s unblemished record made a successful homecoming even more successful.
The Blugold Band, under the direction of Leo Christy, presents one of its halftime tributes to the team and our Alma Mater, as it goes into an E formation for the playing of the Pep Song and the Alma Mater.
The climax to a fun-filled, exciting weekend was the Homecoming Dance, held at the Legion Auditorium. Here is a good sample of the enthusiastic crowd which danced to the music of Bob Leighton.SALES SERVICE

Eau Claire faded quickly from the tournament scene when they dropped their first two games 69-62 to St. Francis of Brooklyn and 60-55 to Rockhurst of Kansas City. In the opener, a cold 35 percent shooting average meant defeat for the Blugolds. Leon Ettcn, Eau Claire center, sparked his teammates with 28 points, Bollinger with 12.
