and the Chippewa Rolls On Fifty years ... a town has matured. Fifty years . . . a school has grown. Fifty years . fifty classes have left that school. Fifty years . . . and the once quiet valley has become a bustling academic community. Fifty years ... and the name has changed from Normal School to Teacher's College, to State College, to University. Fifty years ... soldiers have gone and some have returned from France. Germany. The South Seas. Korea, and Vietnam. Fifty years ... students have knelt before the altars of Rudolph Valentino. Lionel Barrymore. Frank Sinatra. Bing Crosby. Elvis Presley, and the Beatles. Fifty years . . . breadlines of the depression years have risen into an affluent society. Fifty years . . . and the styles have teased hemlines from the calf to above the knee. Fifty years . .. and the waltz has given way to the Charleston, the Continental, the Black Apple, the Lindy, the Chicken, the Twist, the Frug, the Watusi. Fifty years . . . and the girls long hair has been bobbed, perma-nented. streaked, ratted, and grown long again. Fifty years . . . and spring has turned many fancies. Fifty years . . . you say? Yes! Fifty years ... and students are still enchanted by Little Nigara. Minnie Creek and the Council Oak. Fifty years .. . and the faculty is still trying to turn these thoughts back to studies. Yes. Fifty years . . . and the search for truth continues. Fifty years . . . and the school is still growing. Fifty years ... the Chippewa River flows on. The years have made little change in the River. But it. like the school flows onward calmly—sometimes raging, changing all that it comes in contact with. Together they have existed for many years. The school is like the river; never can you put your foot in the same place twice. Fifty years have been spent guiding, shaping, and as long as students have a desire to search and to raise high their ideals, the school will remain—silently, unheard, as quietly flows the Chippewa.

The pace was fast, and the air was full of excitement as Governor Knowles arrived on campus for the dedication of Phillips Science Hall. Occupied in the late fall of 1964. the well-equipped building was already crowded, and plans were being made for an addition. But the aura of the Golden Jubilee year hovered over the festivities. Tours through the building were made by students and faculty, friends and townspeople. Governor Knowles inspected the building and gave it his stamp of approval. New and up-to-date equipment filled the shiny labs. Here was a building that reflected the specialization that earmarked WSU-EC as a University. We had come a long way since the building of Schofield Hall which in 1916 housed the entire school. A mouth watering array of foods tempted palates at the smorgasbord given to culminate the dedication of the Phillips Science Hall. Knowles Dedicated New Science Hall Friends, faculty, and celebrities gathered for the celebration.
