CLOW Scholar, teacher, friend, whose perseverance, tolerance and loyalty have won him respect among seekers after truth. That we may in some measure show the honor in which we hold him. we, the students of Oshkosh State Teachers’ College dedicate to him this thirty-first volume of the Qyiver.Odysseus has told well the story of his travels. If we have related as completely the events that have made our life this year, its joys and trials, its hopes realized and goals won. the purpose in making this book has been accomplished. Let the 1927 Qyiver stand as a milestone in the progress of our school. The StaffBook One ADMINISTRATION Book Three ATHLETICS Book Four ACTIVITIES Book Five ORGANIZATIONS Book Six HUMOKI President H.

D., Miami University, 1925.| S A Year of Idealization and Hope This fifty-sixth year is notable in the history of our school for the celebration of the first commencement to confer degrees and the completion of the new training school building. It is a year of Realization and of Hope. Thirteen young men and women will receive degrees in June and at the close of the summer. The enactment by the last Legislature authorizing us to confer degrees, is advancing us rapidly to a position in the training of teachers comparable to other branches of professional education of college rank. At the beginning of the year new four-year curricula were arranged in all departments. It has been a trial year devoted to testing and perfecting these new courses and standards. This year has been distinguished by the construction of our new laboratory for the training of teachers, which we hope to have ready for occupancy at the opening of school next September. This outstanding addition, a milestone marking ten years of earnest effort, at last places in our hands facilities for training future teachers along the lines of all that is latest and best in educational thought and practice. N’ot long after this year opened, the Board of Regents of Normal Schools approved for us a biennial budget which recognized the crying need for new buildings at our school, which they recognize as necessary if we arc going to secure results in preparation and culture at all proportionate to the importance of such a school as this. Nearly one-half of this budget is for new equipment and buildings. Its approval is an act which marks the realization of Hope. It indicates clearly that the Board of Regents realizes and will support the things which we need so keenly. This proposal looks forward to a new auditorium which will at least complete our unfinished Main Building, a new central heating and power plant, ample equipment for our new training school unit, basement laboratories for domestic science, and the grading and improvement of our campus with walks and driveways. The fruition of these hopes will bring a campus and buildings which suitably represent a school with the traditions and the splendid body of men and women, students and faculty, who have been a part of the history and growth of this school. The close of this year will mark the completion of ten years of association with our School on my part. The first years were times of world war and post-war stress when it was only possible to hold what we had. The last five years have witnessed a march of progress for all of the state normal schools in Wisconsin. We now stand at a point where our ambitions may be realized in a campus and buildings prepared to give a great service to the teachers and the children of Wisconsin. It is true that no matter how beautiful the campus, or how commodious and imposing the buildings, these of themselves can never constitute a school. The student body and the faculty, however housed and equipped, constitute the body and soul of a school, and only in proportion as they are fine and strong, idealistic and capable, can a school be said to be worthwhile. Let us highly resolve that the improvement in the physical plant of this school shall Ik- matched by a higher standard in life, scholastic improvement, and teaching service and that the future alumni of Oshkosh shall outstrip in strength and quality the service of the beautiful and adequate buildings. Only so can we realize the best in ourselves and repay our debt to the state. 1 congratulate the senior class, the first in our history to receive the Bachelor’s degree. I have only praise for the loyal way in which you have carried on under what could be termed serious limitations. As members of one great body of undergraduates, alumni and faculty, let us all rejoice in the present Realization and in a renewed Hope for the future of our dearly cherished school. H. A.

Hancock ilhlclic Director Everyone in Oshkosh Normal has known for years that Oshkosh lias been fortunate in having the services of a man as a coach who has no superior in the state of Wisconsin. It was called to our attention recently that our coach is ranked as high among others as a player as he is among us as a teacher and a friend. hen the Milwaukee Sentinel recently called on fans to choose an All-Wisconsin Honor Eleven, Howard Hancock was unanimously chosen for the first line. At that time. George Downer, now Sports Editor of the Sentinel, formerly Athletic Director of Milwaukee Normal and one of Hancock's former rivals, said the following: "Howard Hancock was an exceptional guard.” He played guard on the ill-starred 1916 eleven in the “Harvard year" at Wisconsin. When Richards returned as coach he placed Hancock at tackle where he played magnificent football. In another article Downer says. “And without saying a word in criticism of these selections. there is one man whose name appears among the guards, who. in the opinion of more than one great coach, is the peer of them all as a tackle. We refer to Howard Hancock, present head coach and athletic director at Oshkosh Normal School. Hancock was one of those remarkable linemen who are born rather than made, having every physical and mental attribute of a star—yet who never attain stardom. Hancock was ideally built for a tackle in the modem game, weighing well over 200 pounds and possessing remarkable speed for so large and powerful a man. He did everything so well and with such apparent lack of effort, that few but those who knew their football ever realized the supreme merit of his tackle play. One man who did. however, was his coach, who considered him as at least the equal of any man who ever played the position under the Cardinal banner.” His record as a coach is known without being spoken of. We point with pride at our string of victories and our championships. We realize that the man responsible for these is Howard J. Hancock. We know that his football teams have only lost one game on the home field. His track teams have always ranked high and his basketball teams have given us much to be proud of. We know that every man who has played under him or come in any way under his leadership. realizes his influence on the spirit of athletics. Every alumnus has words of praise for him. He wields a mighty influence as a coach and as a friend, and every player he has ever coached joins in this tribute. Edward D. Ham. Assistant Director One cannot point to the record of Oshkosh Normal on the gridiron or on the track without calling the name of Ed. Hall into prominence. His first entrance into normal athletics was in the fall of 1921 when he went out for football. Tall, heavy, and strong, he was equal to any of the veterans, as was shown in the first few weeks. His name appeared regularly in the line-up until he developed into one of the greatest tackles the school has ever had. The next fall. Captain Hall, as he was then, came into his own when he was mentioned in Spalding’s Football Guide as one of the outstanding tackles of the year, att honor he held again the following season. Offers poured in from other schools but Ed stayed and gave all he had to put Oshkosh into the championship the folloiwng year. His track records in the discus and hammer throw still stand. He was captain of the track team in 1923, and performed brilliantly in all his events. He was also on the basketball and baseball squads, showing that his ability was not confined to any one or two activities. Upon graduation he went to Fond du Lac where he taught and coached athletics in a Junior high school. When "Bob” Kolf went on his leave of absence. Ed was called in to fill the vacancy, and has shown up creditably. He was line coach in football, and has assisted in both basketball and track. The students are back of Ed and will miss him if he does not return next year.

Captain-elect of the 1927 eleven did not report for practice, "Coop" was elected to this position. “Coop” was already a familar figure in Normal Athletics having played end on the teams of ’24 and ’25. besides contributing largely to the Oshkosh point column in track. A tackle was needed and because of his size and weight Cooper was shifted to that position. His work there will leave a name for him after lie has graduated. Always low enough to keep the opponents from breaking through, he was up where he could see what was going on. He was never caught out of position and could work well with an end in breaking up wide runs. Often his immense hands would reach over the line and pull another lineman out of the play—then his next move was to break through and get the runner. Soon he was a marked man and was covered closely in every encounter. He came out of the Milwaukee game with an injured arm that kept him from reaching stardom for the rest of the season. But he played in every game ably, captaining his men in a manner to keep them fighting. Ai.krkd Schara Captain-elect For the first time since Milt Wilson led the Gold and White in 1923. has an Oshkosh product been at the helm of an Oshkosh grid team. Schara is a local boy and spends his summers like Red Grange and Ed. Hess—on the ice wagon. A wiser choice for a leader could not have been made. Schara is the best conditioned man on the team and showed remarkable work as a guard. He first wore the moleskin at Oshkosh High School, where he played guard during hl$ last year. On the Normal team he won his gold football with the championship 1925 eleven as utility guard. In 1926 he was placed at a regular guard position and the way he played can best be shown by his election to the captaincy for next year. Always alert on both offensive and defensive play, his leadership is shown by his "talking it up" when the men need it most and getting them in position when the forward wall looks weak. He is popular with the squad and the feeling is that he can lead them to a championship in 1927. Page sixty-right Opening of the Season With a wealth of new material and many returned veterans, the chances for repeating the championship looked excellent at the opening of the season. However Captain Jerdee. as well as Seims, Besserdick, Schuerle. Sontag. Reece, McKeon. Krause, and Brennan had been lost to the team with the closing of school in June. Captain-elect Much also failed to return. Coaches Hancock and Hall at once set about to fill the holes left by the absence of these men. Warren Wright, veteran guard and tackle, under doctor’s orders was forced to quit the team. Then an injury to Breden-dick’s shoulder kept this outstanding lineman of the championship eleven from competing in the first two games. Finally a team was shaped and Oshkosh fans wondered “Can they repeat?” OSHKOSH o—LAWRENCE 13 Bent upon victory. Catline’s Lawrcntians, following close on their much talked of battle with Marquette University the week before, launched an attack that was hard to stop. Oshkosh with Miller, Konrad and Bredendick out of the game tried desperately to stem the flood of gains the Blue and White team were making. The spirit of Oshkosh was there, however, that had already established them as fighters. Defeat meant but little, the spirit of "Fight team. Fight" prevailed, and triumphed. For Oshkosh R. E.

Because of the weather conditions the grime was played on the practice field at Menominee park. Coach Hancock had two backfields set for the battle. The first quarter saw Banderob. Feeney, Miller, and Peterson run wild, and the second quarter gave Smith. Baxter. Stilp. and Konrad a chance to show the same speed. There was no difference in the rank. The regular hackficld could not be chosen. Peterson's backing of the line. Armstrong's sure tackles when the Northerners attempted to carry back the punts, and Plcnke’s work at tackle showed that, these Freshmen were learning the game. The team showed effects of the concentrated effort and coaching. lor Oshkosh R. E. Armstrong. Mocde: R. T. Cooper (Captain): R. G. Schara. Kelsh; C. Zimmerman. Chrvst: L. G. Schultz. Wistner: L. T.

The Abraham-Brinkley passing attack of the Keller men had brought woe to the other teams and was expected to mark the doom of Oshkosh. The Maroons started on their attack only to be stopped by the Gold team. The ball changed hands but Oshkosh could do no better. Realizing the strength of the visitors. Oshkosh set out with added vigor, only to be stopped when yardage seemed hopeful. Peterson drop-kicked and the ball crossed the bar. The Oshkosh stands went wild as the half ended 3-0. The second half was much like the first. Each inch of ground was desperately contested. Never was either goal line much in danger. La Crosse’s March was halted and Abraham’s kicked from the field to tie the score 3-3. In a last attempt to cheer the fans of homecoming. Peterson again made a try for goal from the forty yard line. The ball was wide by less than a foot—and the game ended a victory for both teams, yet a loss to Oshkosh for the teams of ’24 and ’25 had handed the Maroons two defeats, uyo and 20-0. But the homecoming was great, the men had shown the alumni that they were fighters. Captain Cooper. Plcnkc, Ann-strong. and Schultz showed their stuff in the lincplav while the backfield was working consistently. The return of "Pa” Brcdendick gave new life to the line. He was shifted from his old position to center and featured with Stilp in defensive work. Those who took part R. E. Armstrong: R. T. Cooper; R. G. Wegner. Schara. Zimmerman; C. Bredendick.

They had not felt the sting of tie feat but Oshkosh was destined to finish their season with a hard fought victory. The disheartening defeat of the week before was easily overshadowed by the growing spirit of "Go. Oshkosh”. The unerring Gold defense kept the visitors from menacing the Oshkosh goal line. Again on the offense Oshkosh showed its power. All of Whitewater’s efforts to stem the flood of gains by the fast Gold and White backficld were worthless. Coach Hancock sent a new team into the battle, and they penetrated the Purple for long gains. Oshkosh could not be defeated on her own field. Only once in six years had a visiting team beaten Oshkosh. Western State College pulled the trick when scoring seven points to Oshkosh’s six. The interstate teams would clash again in another week. The conference schedule was complete. Only Milwaukee and River Falls were without a defeat. Oshkosh was credited with two wins, one tie, and one defeat. rich Chry»t The Line-up R. E. Armstrong.

Every man was determined that the Oshkosh fans would have no cause for disappointment. Peterson and Baxter were left at home injured. Bredcndick had been taken sick before the game, so the fiery lineman was again confined to the bench. A sunny day and a light breeze greeted the men in Gold as they strode out upon the foreign field. Soon the whistle whipped the men into action and the game was on. Oshkosh, sincerely respected, plowed through the Plattcvillc line almost for a touchdown. It was Stilp who took the kickoff and ran it into scoring territory. The opposition met him there. The downstaters were fighters and their defense was working. They opened a passing attack which kept the hall in the middle of the field during most of the game. Smith took advantage of the first chance to score by booting a goal from the field. Oshkosh led at the half 3-0. The second half saw the ball carried from one end of the field to the other. Always a steady defense or a fumble kept both teams from crossing the goal line. The Oshkosh linemen picked up three loose halls during this period. The climax came, however, when "Pete” Schultz, after blocking a punt, fought off eight or ten tacklers and gained four yards. The crowd was on its feet as Konrad after a scries of line plunges took the ball around the end for the first touchdown of the game. Konrad then scored the extra point and Oshkosh was still in the contest for conference honors. Score, Oshkosh 10— Plattcville o. For Oshkosh K. E. Armstrong : R. T. Cooper; R. G. Schara. Kelsh ; C.

The team was on the edge to battle the strongest team Milwaukee had ever put forward. The Green and White eleven were rated as the greatest conference contenders. The stands were crowded with thousands of alumni, students, and teachers who were attending the convention that was being held that week in Milwaukee. Fans expected the highly touted Milwaukee stars to run their way to victory; but not so—Oshkosh started with a “do or die spirit", and after a scries of repeated gains was seriously threatening the goal line. But neither could score. Oshkosh was fighting them now on even terms— Milwaukee seemed helpless. With only a few minutes left, Oshkosh substituted Charette. The newcomer played too wide. Milwaukee sent a play at him which was covered at once. Then another play spelled victory for the downstate eleven. An end run around Oshkosh's left end sent Oshkosh home defeated. They had been out-of-luck, after out fighting, out running, and out spiriting Coach Clapp’s men. Dame Fortune had looked at the men iti Green when she smiled. The Lighting Oshkosh Line-up R. F.

Oshkosh, playing against one of the greatest elevens Kalamazoo has ever had. was turned back at every attempt to score. In the first quarter. Kalamazoo blocked an Oshkosh punt and after a scries of plays carried the ball over for the first score of the game. The try for goal was blocked. Oshkosh was handicaped by the heavy field while the Westerners with an inexhaustible supply of material were sending in fresh men at all times. The work of Coach Hancock's men during the second and third quarters was beyond reproach. At the opening of the fourth quarter many of the Oshkosh regulars were forced to the sidelines, injured. The Kalamazoo eleven, Coached by Carl Martincau. Minnesota’s All-American half-back, put up a wonderful exhibition. A speedy backfield behind perfect interference tore the Oshkosh line to pieces time after time, for long gains. They plunged to another touchdown and kicked for the extra point. With only two minutes to go. they circled the Oshkosh right end for the final touchdown. The try for points was successful. For the third time in as many years Kalamazoo had defeated Oshkosh.

The men chose him not only because of his superior ability as a center, but also because of his good sportsmanship and aggressiveness to carry an uphill game. “Kleetz"' could be counted on to sink all the shots close to the basket, to Ik the first man back on defense, to break up the opponent’s passing game, and to get the tip-off. A change in line-up this year made him a forward where he performed equally well. As a player he had no equal, as a captain he was a fine leader. Next year will find him back in the line-up as he is a Sophomore with another year for completion remaining. We cannot remember a single time where he has tired or has been unable to earn- his share of the fight. The opening minutes of a game always found him going at top speed, and the close of the battle always found him fresh. When a shot was needed he could sink it from center; but he always worked the ball down when there was a chance. He was an asset to any passing game, and his knowledge of the dribble and pivot carried him out of many a guard’s way. One year more, and the name of Bredendick will be treasured among the greatest men who ever stepped into a basketball shoe at Oshkosh Normal. His final year promises to be his best. Every game has been an improvement and should find him going at his best, leaving an enviable record. John Plenke Captain-elect If ineligibility does not cut the 1928 squad. Jack Plcnke will have the honor of leading a team to a state championship. With many well seasoned veterans such as former captains Bredendick and Donahue back in the harness together with Baxter. Peterson. Schroedcr. Weisbrod. Wall. Armstrong. Dahlke, and Ross. Oshkosh will have eleven letter men from which to build a team. Plenke hails from Wisconsin Rapids where he captained the football team in his senior year. He also filled a guard position in basket ball in that school. His work on the football team this tall predicted great success for him in Normal athletics and his basketball record this season won him the captaincy of the team next year. As a front guard he could go down the floor on offense, but still be ready to pick his man when the ball changed hands. His work at guarding kept him from shooting, but in an emergency he could dribble in and sink his shot. His passing and team play kept him working with his team-mates, sacrificing individual glory for co-operation. With Plenke leading and with the massed ability of the men returning. Oshkosh is due to win a conference championship. The men arc behind John Plenke and the good feeling and fine sportsmanship among this year’s team will continue. Pave sn-enly-sevenOshkosh in Basketball Coach Hancock took over the reins of the basketball squad this year. Coach Kolf is at Ripoit College on a leave of absence, and for the first time since 1923 Coach Hancock handled the cage squad. The early season prospects seemed bright. Only two men of last year’s regular squad failed to return. Captain Brcdendick. fromer Captain Donahue. Baxter, Klauck. Jansen. Bogucki. Weisbrod and Clow were back. Among the likely prospects in the new men were Plcnkc and Ross who had starred in their high school days at Wisconsin Rapids. Dahlkc and Armstrong, aspirants for the back guard position: Peterson, an AU-Penninsular guard in high school at Menominee, Michigan: Sheehan. Delavan’s shooting ace: Dorschner. who had held down a forward berth with Wall while in Brillion high school; and Walker and Hulbert. guards. Oshkosh basketball stock dropped below par when it was decided that • Bud Baxter and Fred Donahue, veteran guards, were ineligible. ‘■Bax" was the keystone of the offense on the 1926 machine and Donahue was conceded to be one of the best guards in the Normal Conference. Schrocdcr Oshkosh entered its hardest schedule in years with a new team. Captain Bredendick was the only letter man on the squad Jansen and Klauck, utility forwards of the previous year, were teamed with Brcdendick for the forward wall. Peterson. Plcnkc, Armstrong and Dahlkc were rotated at the guard positions. The fans did not expect the Oshkosh team to finish the season undefeated. They hoped for a fighting team that would carry the “colors” at top speed. They got it. The 1927 team could work valiantly through an uphill game and shine gloriously even in defeat. Weisbrod Klauck » i»c '« “ '• c- » »y Page seventy-eightNORTHERN STATE NORMAL AT MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN The season opened at Marquette, Michigan. Oshkosh, matched against the best team the White and Gold has ever produced, lost the opener, 37-28. Brcdcndick carried the attack with six field goals and a free throw. Ross was second high with three baskets. Klauck, Jansen, and Dahlkc did the rest of the scoring. CARROLL COLLEGE AT WAUKESHA December 16. saw Oshkosh playing the Pioneers on their home floor. The smooth working Carroll five took a 40-21 victory. Captain Bredendick was again the Oshkosh scoring ace. BELOIT COLLEGE AT OSHKOSH (TWO GAMES) Beloit was the Oshkosh victim twice during the Christmas holidays. They met on two consecutive nights, December 21 st and 22nd. Peterson’s five baskets sewed up the first game 20-18. Oshkosh was again victorious the second night when Peterson. Bredendick, and Jansen found the rim for three markers apiece. The final score was 25-23. RIPON COLLEGE AT RIPON Bob Kolf’s Ripon College five showed the form that brought them the Championship of the Wisconsin-Illinois league when they downed the Gold and White by a 36-26 decision. Jansen and Bredendick led the scoring with three baskets. LAWRENCE COLLEGE AT OSHKOSH Clever work in the final rally and shots from the center of the floor enabled the Lawrentians to beat Oshkosh 28-21. Weisbrod playing his first game in a golden jersey showed brilliant floor work. Jansen chalked up seven points and Captain Bredendick five. Peterson. Weisbrod and Plcnke also contributed to the total. NORTH CENTRAL COLLEGE AT NAPERVILLE. ILLINOIS The first game on the trip was fatal when North Central won a 24-13 contest. Bredendick was the only Oshkosh man who could consistently find the basket. Page seventy-nineRogocki Ko « WHEATON COLLEGE AT WHEATON, ILLINOIS The “Grange-town" five showed they had a team as good as the one that pleased the Oshkosh fans the previous year. Steady team work and great defensive ability enabled them to gain 43 points while Oshkosh rat) up 23. Bredcndick took four baskets and Weisbrod three. LAWRENCE COLLEGE AT APPLETON Coach Christoph’s men looked better than ever on their own stamping ground. The Blue and W hite five lead throughout the game attd 29-17 was the score at the final whistle. Peterson lead the losers with three baskets. STEVENS POINT NORMAL AT STEVENS POINT Stevens Point was the first conference victim. A hotly contested battle ended 22-21 with Oshkosh in the lead. Bredcndick, Jansen and Peterson led the scoring. SUPERIOR NORMAL AT SUPERIOR The next night Oshkosh dropped out of the 1000 per cent class with a- loss to Superior. Oshkosh, tired after the trip, could only score 27 points while Coach Tubb’s men totaled 39. Peterson caged four baskets and two gift shots. MILTON COLLEGE AT MILTON Milton put up a great fight, but Oshkosh nosed in a 24-22 victory. PLATTEVILLE NORMAL AT PLATTEVILLE Platteville. the soon-to-be-champions, were the opponents on the night following the Milton College game. The tall Southeners opened a long passing attack that ran up 38 points while the Oshkosh total only reached 23. Page eightyRIPON COLLEGE AT OSHKOSH Boh Kolf's Riponites again took Oshkosh into camp on February t. The score at the final gun was 21-13. Peterson, ineligible because of grades, was greatly missed from the Oshkosh line-up. WHITEWATER NORMAL AT WHITEWATER Whitewater was beaten 19-10 with Plenke and Jansen doing most of the scoring. John Schrocder, playing under varsity colors his first week in school, showed promise as a center. MILWAUKEE NORMAL AT MILWAUKEE The Green and White squad pulled a fast one the following night when they took a 28-14 victory from Oshkosh. Bredendick, Klauck. Jansen, and Schrocder found the rim for two baskets apiece. WHITEWATER NORMAL AT OSHKOSH Whitewater came to town on February 11. Hancock's men playing before the home crowd took a 15-10 win. Weisbrod lead the scoring with six points. STEVENS POINT AT OSHKOSH A new line-up greeted Stevens Point the following week. Coach Hancock shifted Captain Bredendick to a forward post and Schroeder took the center position. Bredendick found the ring for ten points and Oshkosh won 19-18. NORTHERN STATE NORMAL AT OSHKOSH The new combination, great as it was, could not match the fast Northern State five. After leading at the half 13-12, Oshkosh met defeat 30-17. Sheehan Hulbert MILWAUKEE NORMAL AT OSHKOSH Milwaukee bent on a second victory, took the floor on February 14. Bredendick. Schroeder. and Plenke each scored three times, and with everyone going at top speed, Oshkosh finished with a 2 -i9 victory. PLATTEVILLE NORMAL AT OSHKOSH The last game of the season kept the crowd on their toes from start to finish. Platteville tied for the championship by sinking two shots with only a few seconds of play remaining. Bredendick led the scorers with five field goals, but the Oshkosh team-work and defensive ability was the greatest factor in giving Platteville their hardest battle of the year.

Owing to the cold weather and the slow track none of the records were in danger. Captain Lyons showed that he was none the worse because of an operation and scored two firsts and two thirds. Nathan Clow, captain of the championship 1925 team won firsts in both the high and low hurdles. His time was not fast due to an injured knee which had kept him off the football and basketball squads and was due to prevent him from breaking the state record in either of his events. Warren Wright, star weight man. took two firsts and a second. Bogucki took two firsts, a second, a tie for second and a third. Miller scored eleven points for his team and Wall nine.

These are some of the words and phrases that help put the old pep in the school. But in order to put them over big we need good cheer leaders. Sum up the games and general school meetings of the year. Hasn't the pep and spirit been much better than formerly? Decidedly so. Whv? Our present cheerleaders have been on the job working in co-operation with the student body. Lawrence Westphal, another Freshman in our ranks, held down the other cheerleader’s job. Although he did not understand his job quite as well as Miller on account of lack of experience, he did a very creditable piece of work. Clair Miller, a former student of Appleton High school, has had a great amount of experience in this line of work as he was a cheerleader in the high school. He has brought us. along with his ways of conducting cheers, some new cheers that have added pep. He will be with us again next year. The cheerleader’s job. as the students think of it. is a snap, but, in reality, it takes much time and practice which is often overlooked. There success also depends on the co-operation that the student body gives them, for without it they are helpless. Next year, to keep up the good work, start the year out with a bang, and show the incoming Freshmen our attitude, we must make first impressions count. First impressions will help to carry throughout the year with the old fighting pep that accomplishes things and makes school life worth while. If we veil at football games we are sure to get more out of it. Not to yell is to miss half the game. Cheerleaders help—follow their directions. Past fighly-tighlOur Coach Gaynell Neff The director of girls’ athletics and of physical education for girls, Miss Neff, is to be complimented on her splendid work since coming here. Under her direction and enthusiasm, more girls in the school arc now active in sports than ever lx fore. Miss Neff has sponsored the idea that G.A.A. is for girls who arc primarily interested in sports and who can come out for at least two sports during the year. She docs not think it should be turned into a social organization for the benefit of those girls who arc socially inclined. All the girls who now belong to the society are active in sports. Miss Neff is a graduate of Ohio State University and squarely. Girls’ rules are followed in all the sports, even though some of the girls have a difficult time breaking their old habits of playing. The girls admire her for her determined stand and all agree that she is an excellent coach. Miss Neff is a graduate of Ohio State University and Missouri University. Her first experience in teaching was at Oklahoma City where she was Physical Director, and in Madison. South Dakota where she also had charge of the Physical Education Department. Three years ago she came to Oshkosh Normal. Miss Neff’s office has a motto in it of which she is very proud, and she frequently points it out to the girls. On it are these words: We can't all ['lay a winning game. Someone is sure to lose, Vet. zee can [ lay so that our name Xo one may dare accuse. That when the Master Referee Scores against our name— It won’t he whether we've icon or lost. But how we t'layed the game. All the girls feel that Miss Neff has lived up to this motto. She has made her coaching game a matter of sportsmanship all the way through and has striven in every way to impress the same spirit into her girls. Miss Neff’s enthusiasm has helped a great deal in spurring the girls on to greater effort. Nine girls have, therefore, won honor coats. These coats are given by the society to the girls who have earned twelve hundred points, won by making the various teams, by hiking, skating, and horseback riding. She plays tennis well and is frequently out on the courts. It’s fun to play with her and at the same time get pointers from her. Miss Neff also injovs swimming, canoeing, and all the summer sports. When Miss Neff came here three years ago, she introduced hockey which had not been played here for several years. The girls became interested immediately, and a few accidents could not diminish their enthusiasm. Since that time, the sport has steadily increased in popularity. This year Miss Neff started a new activity, horseback riding. A large number of girls had courage enough to take the first lesson, and after that they couldn’t keep away from the horses. Miss Neff originated the idea of serving breakfasts during the summer session of last year. She talked of it until all the girls were just as eager as she to carry the project through. It was Miss Neff who went down to the bakery every morning before seven o’clock to get fresh rolls for the breakfasts. Without her guidance and assistance we feel that the affair would not have gone over quite so well. The girls are all glad and proud that they have such a fine coach and friend as Miss Neff, and wish to give her a vote of thanks for all that she has done. Page eighty-ninem M .

A. Breese and Miss Lila M. Rose. The intense love of their work has, without a doubt, put their department on a high university level equal to the best. During the short time that Mr. Breese has been here, he has established an enviable record in all phases of music. Mr. Breese came to Oshkosh to take up his teaching duties in November 1923. Previous to that time, Mr. J. O. Frank had the responsibilities of the music department as extra-curricular work. He directed the orchestra and band and even after Mr. Breese arrived Mr. Frank finished the year in directing the band and orchestra. Not until the fall of 1924 did Mr. Breese start his splendid work with the band and orchestra. His untiring efforts and his unlimited patience have built up two organizations of which we arc very proud. During his first year here. Mr. Breese directed the Men’s (lice Club which had a membership of forty-four. Mr. Breese also organized the famous "Men’s Quartette” about which we hear so many praiseworthy and complimentary remarks. This quartette was organized in December 1923, a month after Mr. Brccsc’s arrival, and established for itself a widely known reputation. Since this time Mr. Breese has continued the work he started and is at present the director of the orchestra and band, and both men’s and girl’s glee clubs. During the past year, he has been very successful with both band and orchestra as well as the two glee clubs. We have evidence of his success with the glee clubs in the presentation of the "Messiah” along with the aid of local talent. The accomplishment oi this piece of work is a tribute to our director and will long remain in the memory of local citizens as an outstanding musical success. Mr. Breese attended the Western Conservatory of Music at Chicago. 1916-1917. Cornell University 1920-192 and did graduate study at New York University during the summer of 1925. Miss Lila M. Rose, during the last seven years at Oshkosh has expressed so well her personality and other fine qualities in her work in the music department, she will live forever in the memories of those students and children with whom she comes in contact. Her chief work has been in the training department where she has spent many hours of effort training the voices of children. Her work has been a pleasure due to her love of music and it has indeed been highly successful when we consider the friends she has made among both the children of the training department and the students of the Normal proper. At one time, when the Men’s glee club was left without a director. Miss Rose took the responsibility of reorganizing it into a large active group. After the arrival of Mr. Breese. the glee club was given over to him. thus leaving Miss Rose with her work in the training department only. In this department she has directed and produced many cantatas and operettas with great success. Her work has been so intensive that she has not taken more responsibilities in the music department until this year when she began her work with the Girls’ Quartette. Under her accompanying and leardership the quartette has developed into an ably performing group, which speaks well for the efforts Miss Rose has put forth to get such results. In the presentation of the “Messiah” under the direction of Mr. Breese. Miss Rose sang the different soprano solos with ease and skill and feeling which reached the hearts of all. Miss Rose is the fortunate possessor of a lovely soprano voice which has had the benefit of good training. Miss Rose received her B.A. in Education in 1920 from the Colorado State Teacher's College. She attendee! Teacher’s College at Columbia during the summers of 1925 and iQ2f . Miss Rose’s record at Oshkosh is one to be proud oi and is a fitting reflection of her invaluable services to this institution. Miss Rose Page nincty-fiv The Band The Band this year developed into the feature organization of the school. With the new uniforms, new interest, new talent, and inspiring directorship this organization became a recognized necessity for all city celebrations and athletic games. Oshkosh was proud of the wonderful appearance and quality of music that this unit offered. Its success is an accomplishment worthy of state-wide recognition.

W. Campbell Mr. Campbell heads the English and Speech department of the Oshkosh State Teachers’ College. During his four years here his reputation as an efficient teacher and forensic coach has been well established. Under his leadership Oshkosh has made a splendid record in speech competition with other normals and colleges. Me has done much to establish friendly forensic relations with the leading school." of the Mid-West. The teams that have been coached by Mr. Campbell have received the highest type of debate training. With the aid of Mr. James, he has been instrumental in inaugurating the expert judge system in the contest work. The way in which he has brought forensics to the front has led to increased interest in speech activities, and through his influence Oshkosh is turning out teams of which the school may well be proud. . X. S. James Much of the unusual interest shown in forensics is due to the efforts of Xevin S. James, instructor in oratory and extempore speech. Me came to Oshkosh four years ago. His training was received at Wabash College, the University of Chicago, and the University of Wisconsin. Under his direction Oshkosh received in 19.25 a first and a third place in state meets, in 1926 a first and a third, and in 1927 two seconds. Besides making these victories possible, he has encouraged inter-society debate. Those who have worked with Mr. James have found him both a splendid teacher and a fine friend. In the classroom he inspires as he teaches, and there are few who willingly cut one of his classes. The entire school holds him in high esteem. Page one hundred rxoForensic "O” Awards The students who participate in forensic work are awarded silver pins, silver keys, and gold keys, according to the service rendered by them to the school. The silver pin is given to the members of the debate squad who have been alternates on teams, but who have had no chance to speak in a regular debate. The silver key is the award for one year’s participation in either of the three forensic departments, oratory, debate, or extempore speaking. The gold key. the highest award in the forensic department, is given to the students who have represented the school for two years in oratory, debate, or extempore speaking, or in any two of these activities. This system of awards was begun three years ago. It is one factor in the greater interest in forensics in Oshkosh Normal.

The debates within the State this year proved Oshkosh a College of high forensic calibre. Debates were held with leading colleges in preliminary contests and Oshkosh proves its ability in competing with them. Paye one hundred fourWomen's Inter-Collegiate Team Affirmative Team Stella Peterson Gertrude DeYoung (Captain) Marian Robertson Negative Team Marian Kintz Margaret Kelly Mabel Morris (Captain) Alternates—Elizabeth Barlow and Eleanor Dclgoff QUESTION Resolved: "That the United States Jury System be Abolished.” The interscholastic forensic work of the Oshkosh Normal school was officially opened by the girls’ debate team when they debated with the Lawrence College girls’ team. Because Carroll College had to cancel the debate scheduled with our school, this was the only debate of the season for the girls. The negative team traveled to Appleton on February 14 to debate the Lawrence affirmative team there. Under the captaincy of Mabel Morris the team brought much credit to the school and to the forensic department in particular. Miss Morris comes from the East Green Bay High School where she has done much speech work. Her two colleagues, Margaret Kelly and Marian Kintz, are both Oshkosh girls. The affirmative team with Gertrude DeYoung as leader, successfully debated the Lawrence negative team, at Oshkosh. This debate was a non-decision debate, but that fact did not detract from the interest displayed by both teams. They handled the question very capably. Miss Gertrude DeYoung and Miss Marian Robertson are Oshkosh girls and Miss Stella Peterson, the third member is from Shawano. Because of the absence of Dr. H. A. Brown, Miss Portia Baker acted as chairman. Until Mr. Campbell headed the speech department of our school there was no girls’ team. But under Mr. Campbell’s direction, and with the help of Mr. James, a girls’ team was started that has brought honor to the school. For three years they have debated near-by colleges and have done excellent work. l.ast year the girls’ team won from the Carroll College women’s team in a dual debate.

Gleason Inter-State Team The Inter-State debate triangle comprising three schools. Western State Normal of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Illinois State Normal University of Normal. Illinois, and the Oshkosh Normal, was formed in 1923. Spirited and exceptional debates arc held among the three schools every year. For the first three years since the organization of the tri-state league Kalamazoo has won the championship. This year, for the first time in the history of the league, Oshkosh Normal successfully completed the inter-state schedule and easily captured the state championship. The subject for the tri-state debate this year was: Resolved: That the essential fea- tures of the McNary-Haugen Bill be enacted into Federal legislation. The Oshkosh negative team traveled to Kalamazoo, and on March 19. handed Kalamazoo their second debate defeat in two years. Professor A. T. Weaver of the University of Wisconsin was the single expert judge. The debate was staged at Alleghan, Michigan, before an enthusiastic audience composed of members of a farmers’ bureau and students from Kalamazoo. The Oshkosh negative team presented a case that was somewhat novel in its stand on the farm question. The Oshkosh team was composed of three veterans. Donald Gleason. Frank Novitski, and Alvin O’Konski. and was one of the strongest teams that has ever represented Oshkosh on the debate platform. In giving his judgment. Professor Weaver declared the Oshkosh speakers to be effective in selling their material. This debate was the first angle of the tri-state league, and it was apparent that Oshkosh was on the way to championship. The second debate was to take place on April 1. but Illinois forfeited the championship to Oshkosh by dropping from the league. The tri-state debates always prove the most closely contested debates of the year. The work is becoming more interesting each year. With a championship now to spur Oshkosh on. great things are expected of our inter-state teams in the future.

Page one hundred six yCn Robert ton Reese Morris Levy Inter Society Debaters For four years all the societies of the school have participated in the inter-society debate contest. Mr. G. W. Campbell, the debate coach, started this interesting event during his first year at Oshkosh Normal School, and the venture has proved more and more successful each season. Mr. F. J. Dempsey, our Normal regent, has donated a trophy, called the Dempsey Cup. which is awarded to the society winning the contest. This society may hold possession of the cup for one year, and its name is engraved on it. The first year of the inter-society debates the trophy was won by the Philakean Society. The second year Phoenix held it. Periclean won the cup from them in the final clash of the third year. This year the Phoenix Society has again taken possession of the cup. The various societies are grouped into triangles. The first three names drawn form the triangle, and the next three societies form the second triangle. On November 19. when the first round of debates was held, the societies were grouped as follows: Philakean Alethean Phoenix Periclean Gamma Sigma Delta Phi Lyceum Lambda Chi Phoenix. Lyceum, and Lambda Chi respectively were the winners of the triangles and dual debates. The final debate, with these three societies forming the triangle, resulted in victory for Phoenix. The splendid interest shown by societies has made possible the good debates in this contest. It has also made possible a group of speakers from which the debate coaches may select their school teams, and because there is a large group to choose from, the very best material is available. The inter-society debates have been instrumental in making our debate season interesting and successful. m arevss Page one hundred seven The State Oratorical Contest, an annual event, was held this year at Eau Claire. Each of the nine normal schools had a representative. Earl Knutson received second place with his oration. Crime and the Criminal Court. Xorseng of River halls received first place, and Joswick of Stevens Point took third. The judges, all highly competent, were the following: Professor A. F. Weaver, University of Wisconsin: Professor R. Dennis. Northwestern University; and Professor R. Rarig. University of Minnesota. They all commented upon the excellent quality of work and the closeness of the contest. River Falls. Stevens Point, and Oshkosh tied for first place. Oshkosh received two seconds, River Falls a first and a third, and Stevens Point a first and a third, so that each was given four points in the contest. Earl Knutson’s oration was a thoughful one dealing with the crime wave in relation to the criminal courts. This was his second attempt in this phase of speech work, his oration having won a place in the contest last year. Xorseng of River Falls, who received first place, is a speaker of unusual ability. Last year he won the extempore contest. To rank second with a speaker of such ability is a thing of which to be proud. Earl Knutson took part this year. also, in the debate against Milton College. He has another year in Oshkosh, and if he keeps up to his record, even more brilliant achievement is possible. Page ont hundred tightAt the State Contest at Eau Claire this year Donald Gleason represented Oshkosh in the extempore event. The general subject was: “The political and economic conditions of the mid-west farmer". The rules of the contest provide that the speakers must give a twelve-minute speech of an expository or argumentative type. They draw subjects and spend three hours before the contest in reading and organizing speeches. Donald Gleason displayed his usual high grade of work in presenting the subject. "Can legislation Help the Solution of the Farmer’s Problems?” He received second place, first place going to Donald Vetter of Stevens Point. Bernard Morton of River Falls placed third.. The total percentages were: Donald Vetter 199, Donald Gleason U)2. and Bernard Morton 190. The judges were professor A. L. Weaver, University of Wisconsin, and Professor Ralph Dennis. Northwestern University. They complimented the Oshkosh speaker very highly. Since Donald Gleason has done an unusually good piece of work during the past two years in both extempore and debate, he is slated for greater glory in his last year at Oshkosh. Paye one hundred nineThe 1926 Inter-Society Contest was the third of its kind in the history of our school. As the name indicates every society may enter a representative. This type of speech work is playing a more prominent part in the life of the school every year. The Anger Cup is the trophy given to the winner of the oratorical contest. Dorothy Smith, representing the lambda Chi Society won the award in 1924. the first year that this type of contest was held. In 1925 Gwendolyn Recce won the cup for the Phoenix Society, and last year Earl Knutson took possession of it for the Lyceum Society. Last year the Delta Phi. Philakean, Periclean, and Lyceum societies were represented. Not all the societies participate in the event because it is held in May when most of the students have divided interests. Mr. Knutson’s oration was on the subject "Crime and the Criminal Court”. The orations may be on any subject but they must be original. All the orators receive help in a class, but no individual help is given by the coach. Mr. X. S. James. This contest is one of the best types of speech training given at Oshkosh Normal School. The students learn how to reason in debate work, but the art of delivering a speech comes into this work. Much interest has been shown thus far in this speech work, and with the inter-society competition as an added force, the students have delivered excellent orations. Every year the contestants become more numerous and more capable, and the Forensic department sees a banner year for 1927. Payc one hundred ten All School Play "You and I” The school play of 1927, “You and 1” by J. M. Barry was presented at the Grand Opera House Tuesday night. May 17. "You and 1” is a play which presents in a very absorbing way some of the problems of the present generation, and shows how the last generation failed to solve them. Maitland White tells his son “Ricky” that before marriage a man thinks only of "1 whereas after he marries it is "You and 1”. Directed by Helene C.

The air of excitement which pervaded the school the week before October 16, culminated in the parade on Friday afternoon. Everyone turned out. and marched to the music of the band, and with cheers, yells and singing, made the townspeople well aware that the week-end was an eventful, happy one. The alumni found the school waiting to receive them in gala attire. Every society in school assisted in decorating some part of the building or helped with the general preparations. La Crosse and Oshkosh colors made the school gay and festive. Friday evening another parade, not scheduled officially was staged down town by the men of the school. Saturday morning was the "get acquainted all over again" time. All the societies held reunions at school, at which short programs were given and informal talks brought alumni and present members closer together. The corridors were crowded with returning alumni bustling about. There were the customary. "My dear. I haven't seen you for just ages! How are you? Have you heard? Gene is married, and you remember Carl.—well. Carl is teaching at Fond du Lac." At noon Kappa Gamma met its alumni at a luncheon at Stein's. Delta Phi selected the Business Women's Club for its Homecoming luncheon. The afternoon saw the biggest attendance at a football game of the season at the game with La Crosse. The crowds surged in and eagerly watched the game till the last minute. True football weather put both teams at their best. Between halves the band paraded the field, and throughout the game the cheering from the sidelines gave evidence of the high spirited feeling and interest of the spectators. Pa'if one hundred sixteen •• ’ ■ • Although the game was a tie, there was no feeling of disappointment, for there was the consciousness of the game exceedingly well played. In the evening Phoenix celebrated its fifty-fourth Homecoming with a dinner in the French room of the Hotel Athearn. Lyceum met its alumni at a dinner given in the Grill room at the Hotel Menasha, while Philakean held its Homecoming Dinner at the Omro Hotel. The Alethean dinner was given at the Valley Inn at Xeenah. The Business Women’s Club was again the scene of a Homecoming function when Lambda Chi held its reunion there. Gamma Sigma entertained its alumni in the Blue room of the Athearn. The Homecoming spirit which had been growing and rising all during the day found expression in the Homecoming dance given in the gymnasium in the evening. All gathered to close fittingly the day’s celebration. The receiving line which welcomed the guests consisted of President and Mrs. H. A. Brown. Regent and Mrs. E. J. Dempsey, E. A. Cletnans, Miss Emily Webster, Mrs. A. J. Mace, Miss Roberta N. Smith. Miss Ruth Willcockson, Miss Elizabeth Crowley, Mr. and Mrs. Frank M. Karnes, and N. P. Nelson. In addition, one member of each society acted as host or hostess to the two hundred alumni present, a greater number titan has ever attended Homecoming since the fiftieth anniversary. Roy Nelson’s Orchestra furnished some of the best dance music the school has ever had. Excellent punch was the final treat to the guests. All too soon came “lights out" and “Home Sweet Home", and everyone reluctantly left, feeling that the 102" Homecoming had indeed been the best of Homecomings, one characterized by a genuine Homecoming spirit.

She is a member of the Senior Class, graduating from the Two Year Primary Course. This i the first year Oshkosh Normal has had a popularity contest of this kind. The method of choosing the most popular girl was perhaps on a different basis than is customary. The Quiver in running a competitive sale for tickets gave a number of votes for the popular girl to each member of the student body who sold tickets. The contest caused a great deal of interest among the students. There were in all seven girls in the contest. Beside the first two mentioned there were: Lynda Tcskc, Lucille Levy. Gwendolyn Reece. Dorothy Sutherland. and Betty Zorn. Audrey Domke 'Vo 1 iwo "uye-' Popular Girls Miss Mildred Bohn was the winner in the Popular Girl Contest sponsored by the Quiver this year. Miss Bohn’s scholastic record has been maintained at a high level during her years at school while she has participated in many extra-curricular activities. She is captain of the girls' baseball squad, and wearer of the athletic "honor coat". She is secretary of the Social Life Committee and has taken a prominent part in the organizing of the Junior League of Women Voters in this school. Miss Bohn is enrolled in the Three Year High School Course and as a graduate this year has been elected to the Phi Beta Sigma honorary society. Page one hundred tteenty-lwoSenior Prom The first formal Senior Prom was held on May 27. in the gymnasium. This brought to a fitting climax the season’s social activities. Distinctive decorations were arranged for the occasion. The music of Bending's Midnight Rounders kept the spirits of the crowd in a mood fitting for the time. Specialty numbers entertained the happy throng lietween dances. The outstanding feature of the evening was the grand march led by the Prom chairman. Clifford Hutchinson and the Prom Queen, Hazel Magnusen. Both of these people were elected from the senior class. A general Prom committee was appointed to suggest plans for a Senior Prom. They in turn appointed a nominating committee to suggest candidates for the honor of leading the prom. Finally as a result of a general school election Clifford Hutchinson was elected prom chairman. He selected Miss Magnusen as Queen. I'nder Clifford Hutchinson's supervision the final plans were drawn up which resulted in the setting up of a precedent that, it is hoped, will Ik duplicated from year to year.

The societies serve in a dual capacity. All of them unite in supporting the school. Many school projects are carried on entirely by tiic societies. They co-operate so that the work of a school party. Homecoming, or any other activity, is divided so that one society has charge of decorations, another entertainment and another some other part of the activity. The societies back up the administration and arc always ready to assist in every way possible. Extra-curricular activities are fostered by the societies. Inter-Society debate arouses interest for competition among the societies and at the same time brings forth available material for the varsity debate squad. Also. Inter-Society basketball creates much enthusiasm as does the Inter-Society track meet. Oratory is another field in which competition by societies raises the calibre of the work. Along with activities, scholarship is emphasized by the societies thus raising the scholastic record of the school. A working unit the societies generate school spirit and arc of much value to the school. If this were all. societies and their existence would be justified. However, equally important is the value to the student as an individual. Working with a group the members develop co-operation and loyalty. Participation in programs trains students to appear before audiences. This means development of poise, a necessary attribute of the successful teacher. The execution of society projects brings out the qualities of society leadership. Ability in forensics, music, and athletics is fostered and literary appreciation is increased. The social functions provide the necessary social training. Above all the friendships formed and the good times are the things which form a side of school life which will always be remembered.

Lyceum enjoys the distinction of being the oldest society in Normal, since it was organized during the first year of school in 1871. Literary activities engaged most of the society’s attention, but occasional socials were held. In those days both men and women belonged to the society, the change to the present form being made in 1918. Lyceum always has been a worthy contender in forensic activities, and recently has taken an active part in inter-society athletics also. This year’s activities have not proved an exception. Lyceum was the victor over Peri-clean and Alcthean in the first round of the intcr-societv debates; and then lost in the final triangle to Phoenix the victors of the Dempsey Debate Trophy. Lyceum furnished in Earl Knutson the school’s representative in the state oratorical contest. In the inter-societv oratorical competition held in May, Lyceum was ably represented. The basketball tournament during the winter, and the volley ball meet during the early spring found Lyceum furnishing keen competition to all comers. Last year's champions exerted the same high calibre of work in the track meet held on April 30th. The social side of the society has not been neglected. A joint meeting with Phoenix was held on September 16, followed by a treat at the Balcony. Early in October Lyceum entertained its pledges at a smoker held at 491 Jackson Drive. Mr. Hewitt. Mr. Novitski, and Mr. Christofferson gave some interesting informal talks. After a social hour the group adjourned to the Orange Lantern to enjoy an oyster stew. Homecoming on October 15 and 16 offered an opportunity to entertain old members and friends at informal meetings during the two days. The banquet held in the Grill Room at the Menasha Hotel was the climax of the Homecoming activities. Earl Knutson, president, acted as toastmaster, and called upon returning Lveeumites for a few words of greeting. The group then returned to the Homecoming Dance in the Normal gymnasium. Miss Grieder gave an interesting account of her trip to Europe at a joint program with Phoenix on October 2t, after which members danced in the corridor until 10:30. Lyceum again joined with Phoenix on December 14 for a Christmas party in the little gym. Dancing. a visit from Santa Claus who brought each a gift, and refreshments in Mr. Fletcher’s room formed the evening’s entertainment. The customary Lyceum-Philakean dance held between semesters was the next social event on the calendar. This was held at the Century Club on January 29. and easily equaled similar previous dances. May 13 found Lyceum a happy guest of Phoenix at a spring formal held at Miss Arno’s Dancing Studio. This proved to l c one of the year’s most enjoyable social events. The customary stag party brought the year’s activities to a fitting close. During the year members of the faculty have been invited to speak at meetings and they have given many interesting and helpful talks. Members of the society have been given opportunities to take part in the programs from week to week thus given training which helps to bring about a rounded development. Fulfilling one of the purposes of the organization. Lyceum men are thereby qualified to occupy and to execute their share in the school’s affairs. As in other years, Lyceum members were prominent in all lines of school endeavor— forensics, student committees and publications, athletics—the captains of baseball and track being Lyceum men. To name the members engaged in these acticities would be but the repetition of the membership roll. Last, but not least— scholarship is a leading attribute of Lyceum. A sense of loyalty, self-reliance, co-operation, everlasting friendships—these are but a few of the tangible things formed in Lyceum. Lyceum men not only believe in but dare to live up to their motto “We Shape Our Oxen Destiny ” Page one hundred thirty-sevenDomke Kobcrt»on Gallatin Johnston Perkins Kyes Bowser Finnegan Kronzer Zorn Reece Kummerow Frank Gosse Levy Brennan Phoenix First Semester Erna Gosse Lucillf.

Fifty-four years ago the Phoenix society was organized for the purpose of studying and appreciating the best in literature and music. The society has for its motto "Culture not show and for its symbol, the white rose, which means beautiful womanhood. The Phoenix insignia is the delta pi. For the past fifty years the society has been studying literature. Several years ago Phoenix began to take an interested part in forensics. Two years ago the society won the Dempsey debate cup. Last year they were in the final contest for the cup and this year they were victorious for the second time in the inter-society debates. This year's activities opened with the installation of officers on September eighth. Miss Sparkes, who has been faculty adviser of the society for a number of years, left the school and on September nineteenth, Phoenix gave a supper at the Coffee Cup in her honor. Afterwards the party continued at the home of Audrey Doinkc. The first rushing party was a hobo party given at Doemcl’s cottage on 1-ake Winnebago. A hayrack took the girls out and brought them back in the moonlight. The second rushing event was a tea given at the home of Margaret Kronzer. The concluding event of rushing week was a dinner-bridge at the Candle-glo tea room at Appleton. Miss Sparkes, Miss Reece and Miss Gossc spoke briefly. The pledging service was the next important date on the Phoenix calendar. Pledging was October fourteenth. After the service the girls went to the Balcony where a Phoenix ice cream special was served. Homecoming on October sixteenth was, of course, outstanding. In the morning the reunion meeting was held at school. In the evening a Homecoming dinner was served to fifty Phoenicians in the French room of the Athcarn. Miss Morris acted as toastmistress. Mrs. Towle spoke in behalf of the alumni. Miss Recce gave a history of Phoenix and Miss Gossc. in behalf of the society, presented a Phoenix pin to Miss Sparkes. The first joint meeting of the year with Lyceum was on October twenty-first. Miss Grieder told of her experience abroad, after which dancing was enjoyed in the corridor. December sixth was the day on which the semi-finals for the debate cup were held. Lambda Chi. Philakcan. and Phoenix debated. Phoenix winning the triangle. On December tenth the championship debate between Lyceum and Phoenix resulted in a victory for Phoenix. Initiation was held on December seventh at the Libbcy House with the usual enjoyment for everyone, especially those initiated. The second joint meeting with Lyceum was the Christmas party on December fourteenth. Special features were two dance numbers by the girls who had recently been initiated and the distribution of gifts by Santa Claus, in the person of Lucille Levy. The Christmas program was given at Sunny view Sanitorium as in other years. During registration Phoenix conducted a successful cafeteria in room two. Installation of officers for the second semester was on February third. The social event of the year was the annual Phoenix Homecoming formal. This year it was given at the Century Club. The Gib Horst Orchestra played, and dancers from the Arno studio entertained with specialty numbers during intermission. The decorations were in Valentine effect. On February seventeenth a joint meeting with Gamma Sigma was enjoyed at which the play. "Fan and Two Candlesticks" was given. On George Washington’s birthday Phoenix held an open meeting for its rushecs. Two days later a dinner at the Business Women’s Club was given as the other rushing function of the semester. Phoenix was the guest of the Buisncss Women's Club of Xecnah on April twenty-second, when the society entertained with a program. The Phoenix Calendar, a compilation of the year’s events was issued on class day. The last party of the year was the very enjoyable spring formal given for Lyceum at the Arno studio on May thirteenth. As an appropriate climax to the successful and enjoyable year, came the annual house party hold at the close of school. Each year the society tries to do one constructive thing. I.ast year a debate trophy, a silver loving cup. was presented to the Normal schools of the state to be awarded to the championship dehate team of the state. At this writing the 19-“ project has not been decided upon. Pape one hundred thirty-nine» Syjrco'ytt g i H. Kennedy Clematis Weisbrod Ltebell A. Konrad C.

She holds the place she always held The foremost in the school. In January 1899 a group of men students, moved by a desire for an excellence in working ability unattainable in other societies, and by a desire for a closer fraternal spirit, embarked upon an undertaking strange and unheralded in normal school annuals. Founded by a dozen adventurous spirits led by L. M. Denoycr, it has grown and prospered. It is not to be thought that this new organization came to the fore immediately. Both Phoenix and Lyceum were then operating on a different constitution than at present. Both women and men students were admitted to these organizations and no limit to numbers was then observed. Philakean, revolutionizing the then current idea that both sexes should be admitted to all societies and setting thirty as a maximum membership, naturally excited the hostility of the older clubs. For a time its members were boycotted by the other societies but it is a tribute to their perseverance to note that at the end of the school year the name Philakean was recognized by both students and faculty as a permanent society, symbolizing at once both good fellowship and intellectual growth. Through the twenty-eight years of its existence Philakean has experienced both periods of decline and growth. During the World War practically the entire membership was in the service and for a time there were less than five members in school. Following the war. returned members once more placed the society in its proper place. It was in 1917, that Phoenix and Lyceum first assumed their present forms. This gave the Philakeans the added incentive of competing with a similar organization and naturally they exerted more effort. The year 1927 has been one of remarkable accomplishment. Weisbrod. Baxter. Abe Konrad and Armstrong with their consistently brilliant work proved valuable assets to the Gold and White eleven. Over on the reserves Xankivell. Nelson. Davis. J. Sontag, Ed. Konrad and Licbcll all showed their grit and loyalty by staying out through the entire season. Unfortunately Lee Miller, otic of the state’s outstanding backs, was out the entire season on account of injuries received early in the season. At the same time Cardiff was stretching his legs over cross country courses, while Nolan was doing splendid work as football manager. The debate season gave Philakean another triumph. Four of the eight debate squad men were Philakeans. O’Konski. Wrage, Meyer and Cardiff. This fine record put Philakean to the fore in Forensics. Hardly had the debate squad started work when Weisbrod and "No. No.” Armstrong began burning things up on the hardwood courts. Clow and Witikopf were also performers on the squad. After the first semester Schroeder. one of our new members, also earned a place on the Varsity squad. Philakean accomplished another outstanding feat when it carried off honors in the intramural basketball league. The Pennant was won by the margin of two full games. The team members were Captain Miller. Hugh Kennedy. Jed Kennedy. Charles Sontag. Fd. Konrad. Cardiff, and Xankivell. Closely following this achievement came the winning of the Men’s Volley Ball League. Not one defeat was registered against Philakean throughout the entire schedule. Those representing the society were Captain Clow. Baxter. Miller. Abe and Ed. Konrad, Nelson. Cardiff. Jed and Hugh Kennedy and Armstrong. Among the individual accomolishmcnts of the society might Ik- listed the election of O’Konski as President of the Student Bodv. Pasha as Business Manager of the Quiver. Clarence Schroeder in the Men’s Quartet. Clair Miller and Lawrence Westphal as Cheerleaders. not to mention our Band members consisting of Clow. Clemans. Hutchinson. Davis. Sanderson, and Schroeder. The social program of Philakean was of its usual high nature. Philakean cannot b otherwise than optimistic about its future. With a fine group of fellows, eager to carry the name Philakean onward, with the splendid co-operation of its advisers, with traditions both ancient and honorable, and last, but not least with one of the best sister societies in the school.

And the memories of Alethean Will always cheer us and lead us on. The charter members of the Alethean society felt that in a school as large as the Oshkosh Normal, it was necessary to have several societies, with membership so limited that each person might get the training she desired. With few societies in a large school, either each must be too large for good work, or there must be many persons who are not associated with any society. Realizing this to Ik- true, the Alethean society was organized in the spring of i X)o with the purpose in the name they have adopted. "Seekers after truth.” Within three months of its existence the limited membership was filled and Alethean was laying claim to a place of merit among school organizations. Miss Amanda Bodden, of the Oshkosh High School faculty, is a charter member of the Alethean society. Truth and loyalty is the motto of the Alethean. The creed of the society includes s K'ial functions and social culture based on the belief that nothing rounds character more beautifully than these two. The Alethean and Philakcan are brother and sister societies. A true spirit of friendship exists between the young ladies of Alethean and the young men of Philakcan. The two societies have always had joint parties. Before dancing was allowed in the Normal School these parties were in the form of "Treasure Hunts”. These "Treasure Hunts" are especally interesting, because they are in vogue again. After dancing was permitted the Philakcan society gave the Alethean society a Spring Formal, the next year Alethean gave their brothers a spring dancing party. At first the Aletheans drew the name of the Philakcan she was to take to the dance and vice versa. Now, however, the dance is given for Philakcans and their guests and Aletheans and their guests. This year the Alethean society gave the spring dancing party at the Twentieth Century Club on April twenty-ninth for Philakcans and their guests. In 1911 the society held its first Christmas Romp for one hundred poor children of this city. It is the only society in the Normal School that makes this an annual affair. The children are entertained with stories and games, and are given stockings filled with apples, candy ami other Christmas goodies. Miss Ellen Peake, honorary advisor for Alethean. was made chaperon for the society in 1912. Before this time no society in the Normal School had a chaperon. Soon after Miss Peake’s appointment by the Alethean girls, the other societies followed suit. There was instituted a tradition in the society in 1018. a Mother’s Day Party. It is a party to show the appreciation of Aletheans for things their Mothers have done. This party and the Christmas Romp are annual affairs. It shows simply that an Alethean does not take all. but shows appreciation by trying very humbly to return. During the past year, the society has done much interesting work. The first semester was spent in studying the lives and works of artists, the second semester was spent in studying the lives and works of modern writers, and reviews of their recent books. The Aletheans have had several joint meetings with their brother Philakeans. At one of these meetings an old fashioned spell down was held. The Alethean girls won the tiny loving cup. These spell downs are to lie held each year. It is twenty-seven years since the Alethean society was organized. During that time it has upheld consistently the ideals of loyalty and service both in its own ranks and in the school as a whole. Scores of bonds, which will never lie broken, have been created. Perhaps these bonds have never been so closely woven as during the past year, in the course of which Alethean has learned the fullest meaning of the word, friendship. The strong feeling of fellowship and friendship which exists among the Alethean girls shows that sight has not been lost of the great motive, the foundation of the social co-operation. The society has been particularly fortunate this year. It pledged fifteen girls: twelve of the fifteen were initated at the end of nine weeks each with a grade point average of 1.15 per cent or over.

Muggade-wutnp, Industrial Arts on the Jump. Who are, who are, who are we? We put the dust in ln-dus-try. During the school term of 1914-1015, the directors of the Industrial Education Department of tiie Oshkosh State Normal School began to realize the need of some form of social and educational organization for the men of this department. A society was organized without difficulty, due to the co-operative spirit of the students. The organization was to be called the lndustial Arts Society. The purposes for organizing the society were: to promote interest in literature: to give practice in parliamentary procedure; to promote scholarships; to give more definite opportunity for discussing problems closely related to the Manual Arts field; and to encourage social ideals and worthy standards. With these motives in mind the Industrial Arts Society began its history. In 1926 the organization selected Delta Phi for its sister society. Since that time we have had many joint literary meetings and social hours, which have been most enjoyable and worthwhile. I11 the year 1925 the last rise on the ladder of improvement was made. The society was then recognized by the Student Council. Since that time Industrial Arts has had the privilege of sending representatives to the Student Council meetings and has reaped benefits accordingly. Since its organization, the Industrial Arts Society has taken part in the school activities and has answered willingly to all calls from the Social I.ifc committee. The belief is that social life is as important as literary life, and that “He who serves best, profits the most." The aim and ambition is to- lessen the burdens of life for our companions and make the society grow thru its usefulness. During the past year the members have experienced many enjoyable social hours by themselves and with the sister society. The first social gathering this year was the annual oyster stew in honor of all new industrial students interested in the society. This took place on September 27th at Mr. Karnes’ cottage on Sunset Point. This gathering is one which was heard of long after it was over. Each told his joke, ate more than was good for him and caught the good fellowship spirit which surrounded him. It was an ideal mixer in the form of a "Stag Party.” On November nth a joint meeting was held with the sister society. The evening was spent in a short meeting in which the talented members of each society entertained with vocal or instrumental selections, parliamentary drill, and all joined in dancing. This gave all a chance to meet each other and get acquainted. Another annual event is a joint meeting held at the Karnes’ home. This is an event which is always looked forward to and is made possible only thru the generosity and good spirit of Mr. and Mrs. Karnes. The formal dancing party was held at the Century Club with all evidences of a great success. This was also another joint gathering with the sister society and their friends. Then to bring the year successfully to a close in a social sense the two societies had a boat ride in the afternoon and a luncheon in the evening at Buttes Des Mortes followed by a boat ride home. When the call came for delegates to the Inter-Normal Forensic contest at Eau Claire the Industrial Arts Society sent a member to boost the school’s speaker. It has taken an active part in all athletic tournaments held by the school and has several members wearing an Oshkosh "O”. It has a creditable representation in the Normal Band, the Glee Club, the Quartette, the Orchestra, track and football teams, and a member that took second place in the school’s oratorical contest. The programs of each meeting are interesting due to the variety of splendid taiks received from faculty members. From time to time, round table discussions are held on problems relating to work in the industrial field. The Director of the Industrial Department. Mr. Frank M. Karnes, is the adviser of the society and many worthwhile suggestions are received, not only for the present but for the future. Page one hundred forty-fiveBohn Linn DcVVitt Jorgcnuon B.

You’ve given us friendship, ice’ll always hold deor In the fall of 1922, a group of six girls discussed the possible need of a new literary society in the school. There were then only two girls' societies of long standing, Phoenix and Alethean. Because of their limited membership they were unable to take in many of the worthwhile girls. Aside front the good times connected with such a society, there is always the education received in co-operation, learning to carry responsibility, and developing executive ability. The charter members were Catherine Josslyn. Florence Fen ski, Anne Hornebeck. Alice Holzer, Julia Linn, and Catherine Bachman. A few secret meetings were held for the purpose of deciding on a suitable name, drawing up a constitution, and other matters relative to launching a new organization. Our faculty adviser and chaperons were Miss Marv Willcockson, Miss Stone, Miss Clausen, and Miss Blake. When Miss Stone left the school, Miss Bradbury kindly took her place. It is to the patient and thoughtful advice and counsel of its faculty members that Delta Phi owes much of its success. During the past year Delta Phi has done much that is interesting to the school and its members. Beginning with the first of the school year at Homecoming, Delta Phi welcomed back old members at a luncheon which was given at the Business Women’s Club. When the Christmas season drew near Delta Phi showed good spirit as a social worker by attempting to cheer the hearts of a poor family by providing them with food and gifts. The society has had many interesting joint meetings with its brother society, the Industrial Arts. First a dancing party was held in the gymnasium of the Normal School. The second meeting was in the form of an old-fashioned box supper, held in the Libbey House. The third meeting was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Karnes. Literary programs arc the principal features at the meetings and very worthwhile programs have been given. This year the short story and the drama have occupied important parts on these programs. The values received from the discussions of these two types of literature were more than ordinary appreciation and enjoyment because the members had been presented with criteria for judging both forms of literary productions. An outstanding social event of the year in the lives of the members, the returning alumni, and friends of Delta Phi was the spring formal. Each member was allowed to extend an invitation to a friend or another couple. The last event of the year was the annual week of camping at Sunset Point. As a group Delta Phi Society has taken an active part in school activities and in its social life. The Normal vaudeville has been participated in each year by the society. Delta Phi took pride in being awarded first place in competition with the other school societies in the vaudeville of 1926. The stunt. “A Modern Girl In Fain-land.” which was put on by this society was written and directed by one of its members. In girls’ athletics and other extra-curricular activities. Delta Phi has always been represented. Although not starring in debate, the society has always entered teams and endeavored to contribute to this school activity. The Girls’ Glee Club usually has a good representation from the Delta Phi Society. When the New Voters’ League, a new school organization, was started and the Delta Phi girls backed and still are strongly backing it. The first president of the new society was a girl who had been president of Delta Phi for two semesters. Delta Phi members have served on the Quiver Staff for several years, and a Delta Phi member has been secretary of the Social Life Committee. Within the society circle, accomplishments have been made in studying types of literature. The short story, poetry, modem drama and humorous essays have had places on the society’s programs and have been of great interest and benefit to the members. Much earnest endeavor has been spent upon this major activity of the society with creditable results. Pant out hundrtd ferty-sevtnA.

Founded four years ago the society lias had a short but spirited career. Originally formed for the purpose of developing literary appreciation in its members the society is now active in athletics and forensics. The aims of the society have been adhered to so closely that every member of the society is participating in some form of activity whether it be of an athletic or forensic nature. The society has done much to bring out the best qualities of its members. Men who formerly had not participated in debate have taken part in inter-societv debate and as a result of the training have developed into some of the school's best deflators and orators. This society has always been well represented on the deflate squad. On the football squad Periclean has placed many of its members and has been especially proud of the membership on the 1926 squad. The captain of the 1926 squad is a member. The representatives of the society on the basketball squad have made a very good showing the last few years. This society always participates in every inter-scholastic activity. In 1925 it took second place in the inter-society debate contest. In 1926 three Periclean teams were in the field and the society won first place in the Inter-society contest. In all inter-society athletics the society has taken a very active part. In basketball it has beat the purpose to give as many as possible an opportunity to play the game. In 1926 and 1027 second place in both contests went to Periclean. In track more men participate because of the varied type of endeavor. There have been good men for the discus and shot throwing, for low hurdles and the pole vault. Distance men represented the society in every event. The society has presented a large trophy case to the school which will stand as a symbol of its collective activities. The society has fulfilled well its purposes and with a full membership will continue to take a prominent part in athletics and forensics in the future. Although one of the youngest societies, participation in all events has marked its short existence. Socially the society is very active. The year 1926-1927 was begun with a stag party followed by a joint party with the sister society, Gamma Sigma. On October 16, Homecoming dinner was given for the alumni. The old order of the meetings has somewhat changed, outside speakers and entertainers have been secured for the meetings which have been very satisfactory and educational. Parliamentary drill has been emphasized by the society to improve the form of business meetings. Effort has been made to develop musicians within the society. The society will begin its 1927-1928 year with a large and active membership; only five of the members will be lost through graduation. Many of the athletes of the society will remain to take a place among the leading athletes of the school. Football, basketball and track will feel the support of the members of this society. Furthermore, every member of this year's debating squad will be back in school next year to hold up the Periclean’s good record in debate. In the past we were successful in all the school activities that we undertook, and from all indications we should be still more successful next year.

"liver forward” our motto true. Though the years bring no tears or rejoicing Her code will be ever nett'. At one of the girls’ assemblies late in the fall of 1922, Mrs. Mace. Dean of Women, dropped a bomb shell into the established order at Oshkosh N'ormal School. She made the suggestion that if any of the girls so wished they had the permission atid encouragement from the faculty of the school to form a society in addition to the two already in the school, the Alcthean and the Phoenix, since these two. with limited memberships, could assimilate only a small percentage of the girls enrolled. Immediately after the meeting. Flizabeth Brown called on Mrs. Mace for further information. As a result six girls. Ruth Raby. Charlotte Grooaninne, Gwendolyn Randall. Ida Riebc. Florence Graunkc and F.lizabeth Brown, decided to form a girls’ society. For a name the girls had in mind a Greek letter, but no one knew anything about Greek. Searches through sorority and society papers failed to elicit a satisfactory name. Finally some one suggested that possibly some of the faculty members knew Greek, and Mr. Fletcher obliged the girls by offering several names. The motto "Forward” had been decided upon, but no satisfactory corresponding name could be found. Hence the musical and yet substantial sounding Gamma Sigma with the insignia 1- was chosen. The society has been very successful in its work. Membership increased, and there has been increased study of art and literature. The programs at the meetings consist of musical selections, the study of literature or drama of some worthy author, and practice in the art of Parliamentary law. The society has taken a great deal of interest, and has been well represented in the extra-curricular activities such as forensics, girls' athletics, music and drama. Whenever the school has called for aid in activities, the society has tried to do its share toward making that activity a success. Not only has the educational side of the society been interesting but social events have been greatly enjoyed, and have aided in making the year superior to others. The "pep” of the society which began in the fall rushing events and initiation, extended throughout the entire year. Upon the graduation of several members at the end of the first semester, several new members were initiated into the organization. Several parties which were held with the brother society. Periclean, proved to be most successful. The Periclean pledges furnished Gamma Sigma meetings with real entertainment while they were being initiated. The 1926 Homecoming was the largest since the organization of the society. A delightful banquet was held at the Athearn. and from the splendid time everyone had indications suggest that the Homecomings in future years will be even better. An interesting feature within the society is the "Scrap-Book" which contains writings of all interesting society events, and in which pictures and letters of all members are kept. This book keeps the new girls in touch with the former sisters, and when the alumni come for Homecoming or any other social event, they find the book interesting and helpful in becoming acquainted with their new sisters. The first formal prom which Gamma Sigma has ever given was held early in the spring. April 13. Invitations were extended to the alumni, and by the large number of responses, it was certain that the alumni had not lost interest in the society. The prom proved such an enjoyable event that it will become an annual affair. The year would have been incomplete without a camping trip. As a final touch to the year's work the girls spent a week at the Waupaca Lakes before the long summer vacation. In all we feel that Gamma Sigma has spent a most profitable and enjoyable year, and that we have lived up to our motto “Forward".

Oh Lambda Chi! li e will ever cheer thy name, liver will we "wear the colors That f roelaim to all. our fame. In September 1923. the Lambda Chi society of the Oshkosh Normal School was organized. The chief aim of the founders of the society was to further musical culture. Since there had been no society in the school devoted to the study of music, a group of young women who were interested and talented in this field, founded this society. Three of the young women most instrumental in founding this society were Dorothy Smith. Eunice Smith and Lillian Mosliug. Miss Lila M. Rose, former music adviser, did much to promote interests in music among the members. Miss Ruth Willcockson. who has been faculty adviser of this group since its organization, has devoted her time generously and whole-heartedly to the end of constant growth and betterment. Membership in the society is based upon high scholarship and talent and interest in music. The society endeavors to carry out its purpose by having a part of every pr« gram devoted to music study. In this study is included the history of the music of all nations and races, the lives of famous composers and their masterpieces, and opera s and operatic stars. This study is in most cases augmented by selections on the piano, violin and other musical instruments. In Phi Beta Sigma, the Honorary Scholarship Fraternity, Lambda Chi was well represented. having contributed thirty-three and one-third per cent of the total number of student members of the class of 1920. The Misses Katherine and Marie Kafer 26. had the distinction of being the first in their class in scholarship. In the field of extra-curricular activities, the society has always given ample support. A large percentage of the members have belonged to the Glee Club, and several members have played in the orchestra, Lois Finger 27. during her one year at school here, has been the accompanist for the Glee Clubs. Orchestra, and Quartette. Miss Eunice Smith ’25 was editor-in-chief of the Quiver for that year. In 1926 several members of the society were active on the Quiver Staff and Miss Dorothy Smith was the associated editor for this publication. In 1923 Miss Dorothy Smith ’27. representing the society in Liter-society Oratorical contest, won first place and gave Lambda Chi the distinction of winning the Anger Oratorical Trophy the first year after its presentation. Lambda Chi has always participated in inter-society debating and each year has had one or more members on the Debate Squad. The Misses Dorothy Smith. Stella Peterson and Margaret Kelly have represented the society in this activity. In other organizations such as the Junior League of Women Voters. Y. P. C. A. and Marquette, members of Lambda Chi have taken active part and have held offices. In social functions Lambda Chi has been especially active this year. The first affair given by the society was a sleighride. Two "bobs” took members to the Golden Pheasant, where dancing was enjoyed. O11 February 18 an informal dancing party was again given as Marie Arno’s Dancing Studio. A representative crowd was present and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. If anyone had been near the Balcony at 5:30 on the morning of April 12 he would have seen twenty or twenty-five girls heading toward Menominee Park. This group was composed of lambda Chi girls starting off on a breakfast hike. After an honest-to-goodness campfire had been built the girls fried bacon and eggs. When breakfast was over a drizzling rain began to fall. After the crowd had enjoyed the questionable pleasure of a walk home in the drizzle, the rain stopped in time for them to walk to school in the sunshine. The Spring Formal was held May 7. the formal dance given yearly by the bmUla Chi Society. • V Page one hundred fifty-three •sv .MpKo rvnch icmpic i-accas ucIkoIi Hi rig Broadtand Kint Locschcr Sorenson Hess Miss Wilson Sader Hichsch Tollefson Miss HoutHcnr First Semester Marion Kintz Margaret Loescher Florence Sorenson Mary Davis .

And throughout each year to come IVe pledge our loyalty to thee. The society was organized in 1923 under the name of Val Ferrari by Miss Fritche. Hu's last semester there was an official revision made to the original charter, changing the name of the society from Val Ferrari to Kappa Gamma. The purpose of the society is to create an interest in art appreciation and dramatic production, and to create friendship among a group of girls. Bearing these purposes in mind the members of the society endeavor to promote school spirit and create a womanly attitude, stressing at the same time a desire for knowledge. . The society holds meetings regularly every Thursday evening in room 107 to discuss business matters, and several of the members participate in literary programs. Once a month the society holds a meeting at the Oshkosh Public Museum. Here under Miss Bouffleur’s guidance we learn to appreciate the paintings exhibited each month. At several of the regular meetings different members gave various play reviews and several one-act plays were presented. Of the one-act plays presented at society meetings. "Good Night”, by Marion Spencer Smith, was presented by Marion Fling and Ruth Pynch before the Women’s Reading Club at the Guild Hall on January i . The same play was broadcasted by Marion Fling and Ruth Pynch at Omro during the month of January as part of a Normal School program. Several of the members took part in extra-curricular activities. Marion Kintz and Eleanor DelgofT were members of the girls’ debate squad. Margaret I .oe sc her. Florence Sorenson, and Hazel Market) take part in basketball, baseball, and volley ball. Members of the Glee Club and orchestra are Bertha Hiebsch and Iola Laccas. On March 27 Mrs. V. C. Hewitt gave a very interesting and instructive talk about parliamentary drill. After some discussion Mrs. Hewitt led the members in a snappy parliamentary drill from which all received much valuable information. The society greatly appreciated Mrs. Hewitt’s help. The social events for the year included: rushing parties, a Beach party at Margaret Loescher’s Cottage, a dinner party at Morgan’s, a breakfast at the Business Women’s Club, a theatre party at the Oshkosh Theatre, a bridge party at the Business Women’s Club, and a luncheon at Stein's. During the year there were various theatre parties and social hours. A Spring Formal was held at the Century Club on May 23. A boat ride and a house party were scheduled for the second week in June.

From this early mystery there has evolved a new code of health and a new decalog of rules on citizenship and right living. Men seek the open country for vacation periods and come back to their work mentally atid physically refreshed. This led to the thought that rural life was the ideal life and queries arose: What is the life of those who live permanently on the farm? Are the handicaps natural or economic? An investigation was made by Roosevelt’s Country Life Commission resulting in a report which is now famous thruout the nation. Since the welfare of our nation depends on the nature ami stability of her tillers of the soil, since our entire future depends on the type of citizenry developed in the masses, since our population is largely rural, it behooves us to improve working conditions on the American farm, and to bring to the rural youth of America all of the educational advantages. The students and faculty of the Rural Education in the Oshkosh State Normal School have been working intensively on the training of teachers for this particular field to help solve this problem. They realized that some form of social and educational organization was needed for the rural students in training. Accordingly in November, 1926 they called a meeting of all students in the division. A club was duly organized. A review of the minutes of the society proves that the group is developing the motives for which it was organized. Several rural plays and programs have been given. The Christmas program at Nordhcim along with its memorable sleigh ride was an outstanding event of the year. The farewell party given in honor of the mid-year graduates was an expression of the friendship which exists in the society among members. At a recent meeting Mr. Hewitt gave an interesting and worthwhile discussion of his rural experiences and Miss Stewart discussed the ethics of job hunting. The students have shown musical and literary ability in the one-act play presented, "Song for Rurals" composed by two of its members. The Ruralites are endeavoring to do their best in every way to support the Oshkosh State Teachers College in its progressive attitude toward general social activities. They sent their president as a delegate to the annual meeting of the Inter-Normal Forensic League at Eau Claire. The question of joining the National Country Life Collegiate Club was discussed and agreed upon, and action is accordingly now under way to obtain the charter. This means for the Ruralite Society guidance from the best known and most respected rural group In the world. It means contact with the leaders in rural thought. It gives to the Oshkosh Rural Division a right to a delegate to all national meetings of this body. It brings to the local society also several subscriptions to "Rural America", which contains articles by rural leaders. The spirit of dedication which moves all leaders in rural education to a life of service in strengthening the weakest link in our educational system has been nowhere better expressed than in the "County Study of Rural Education" by Dr. Ernest Burnham, President of the American Country Life Collegiate Club. He says in part: "No brighter chapter has been written in the history of American Education than that which will tell of the sacrificial fidelity of many farm communities to their love of education as expressed in their desperate efforts during their hard financial years to keep up the best schools possible under the circumstances.” "Rural education is richly endowed by generations of hard won success by some communities. and by the educational survival of an unknown percentage of the sons aud-daughters of the farms. However, the problem of better rural schools persists because the proportion of educationally successful rural communities and individuals is still far too small.” To the service of these deserving pioneers the members of the Ruralite Society dedicate their most sincere efforts in training and in service.

Several students in the Type Studies Class, wishing to spend more time on Browning, received permission from President Albcc to organize a Browning Club. Permission was given for the use of a classroom for the meetings, and for the use of the gas without pay. Should its life be shorter than a semester, however, twenty-five cents for each meeting should be charged. The first meeting of the club was held in the spring of 1897, ami since then it has held regular sessions twice a month up to the present time. It first consisted of fifteen active members from this school and fifteen associate members, most of whom were citizens in this community. Then about 1916 it became a girls' society exclusively. The aim of the society has been the study of Robert Browning’s work. The society has accomplished the purpose for which it set out. It has given its memliers some idea of the dramas and longer poems of Browning. Its aim is purely literary, and it is the only society of its kind in the school. With the adoption of a four year course no student ranking lower than a sophomore will be eligible for admission. Whether the assigned work is the monologue, the lyric or the drama the chief interest has been to discover Browning’s message, which appears to vary with the individual group. Each mcmlier is responsible for a substantial contribution to the club. Skill in organizing material and in directing and leading a group in a special study is thus acquired by the members of the club. Meetings last one hour, from seven to eight and arc held at the home of Miss Ellen Peake. Union Street. Parliamentary drill is one feature of Browning meetings. New members of Browning must pass a "mental and physical initiation". Mental initiation consists of a parody on Browning. This year Edith Richards’ poem was unanimously chosen as the best. Physical initiation this year was under the direction of Miss Peake, who surprised the girls by having the ordeal take the form of eating ice cream and cake. This year the study of the “Ring and the Book" was the major study. The most permanent value in such study is the breadth of vision and of sympathy and the knowledge of life that comes from contact with the universal truths expressed by Browning. From time to time favorite passages are memorized. Some of the most popular selections arc: “Ah. hut a man’s reach should exceed his grasp Or zv hat's a heaven for?” Andrea del Sarto "If you yet simple beauty and naught else You yet about the best thing God invents." Fra Lippo Lippi "Yc?w seen the world The beauty and the wonder and the power. The shape of things, their colors, lights and shades. Changes, surprises, and God made it all!" Fra I.ippo Lippi “H’hy stay we on the earth Unless to grow?" Cleon “All sen-ice ranks the same with God, With God. whose puppets, best and iworst, Are zee. there is no last nor first."

The Club was organized because many of the Catholic students in the Normal School realized the trials and difficulties of being strangers in a new community, and because they felt the loss of those influences which in their homes tended toward a higher appreciation of Catholic knowledge. The organizers knew the importance which a good religious training has in the forming of character and the shaping of eternal destinies. They were desirous of conforming to the highest ideals of Catholic manhood and womanhood in the interest of religious truth, both doctrinal and historical, in the interest of a more extended knowledge of the scientific researches founded by the Church and of Catholic literature generally; ami finally, the club was organized for the purpose of establishing more friendly relations among Catholic students. Marquette has established a record in the past few years that is difficult to surpass. The club has been prominent in the field of forensics and music, and also in the realm of athletics. This year Marquette was well represented on the varsity girls’ and men’s debate teams. It has always been a strong contender for the Dempsey Debate Trophy. For the past two years the school’s representative in extempore speaking has been a Marquette member. Marquette's school spirit was adequately shown by the number of the representatives at the State Forensic contests at Eau Claire this year. Marquette has enjoyed many joint meetings with Y. P. C. A. in the past year. I.ast year the two clubs combined and held a spring party at the Power Boat Club House on Lake Butte dcs Morts. Splendid programs are presented at the regular meetings of the club every Wednesday evening. Music, debate, readings and discussions of religious topics, form a large part of these programs. This year we have had the pleasure of being addressed by many prominent pastors of the city.

The members of the organizations felt that better work could Ik- done by combining the two. so the organization was made with Roy Tamhlingson as the first president. As the union was made late in the semester little was accomplished, although a corridor dance was held and a very enjoyable hike made to Sunset Point. A summary of the meetings will show the nature of the work done this year. A mixer for the school was given in the gym on September 21. Several novelty dances were featured during the evening. On October 6, Rev. Adams of the Algoma Methodist Church gave a very inspirational talk on “Making a Friend.” At the next meeting on October 14. Dr. Clow spoke on the “Value of Church Attendance.” On October 20. Mr. Hewitt addressed the group in a very interesting way on “The Bible”. A joint meeting with Marquette was held on November 17. members of both societies furnishing the program. Miss Webster renewed our acquaintance with Hampton Institute. December 7. A Christmas remembrance was sent to the students there, and at a meeting shortly after the Christmas recess. Miss Webster brought ! ack to us an account of her visit to Hampton Institute, and greetings from the people there. On March 9. Mr. Hewitt again addressed the group, this time on the subject “Does Honesty Pay ?" "Personality” was the subject of a most interesting presentation by Mrs. Mace on March 16. Y. P. C. A. was very fortunate in having Miss Grabill of Gingling College. Nanking. China, as the speaker on March 2.t. She is a teacher in that women’s college, and gave us first hand information regarding present day conditions in China, as well as the educational program of the schools now in operation. On April 6. Mr. Campbell brought some important matters to our attention in his talk-on “Citizenship.” Another joint meeting with Marquette was held on April 27. with Mr. Frank speaking to the group. One of the outstanding pieces of work was the sending of Miss Krna Gosse and Mr. James Vcrduin to the National Student Council held at Milwaukee during the Christmas vacation. Representatives from the colleges and universities throughout the country were present, and many problems of the day were discussed in group conferences as a part of the program. When the delegates returned from the convention two meetings were given over to the reports and a general discussion of some of the problems presented at the meeting. Members always help in giving a part of the program, and during the second semester group discussions were held of the topic presented by the speaker of the evening. In this way more of the members took part, and many times interesting sidelights and helpful suggestions were given which were beneficial to all.

Lueders. Addresses of welcome were given by the Rev. Schlueter and Rev. Klcinhans. Officers of the society were electc l and a committee of five members was appointed to investigate and decide upon a constitution for this new Lutheran Society which had in its membership only Normal School students. The aim of the society is to further acquaintance among the Lutheran students attending the Oshkosh Normal School. The society has done much to bring all the Lutherans of the school together for good times. The membership in the society this year is not quite so large as it was last year. Those who arc members, however, are glad they joined, because they have such good times and do so many things of interest. Both Rev. Klcinhans and Rev. Lueders arc doing everything in their power to make the society a success and a benefit to its members. Even though twelve of the members graduate in June there arc many good “rcady-to-work” members left to put the society on its way next fall. The society has had many parties this year which will not be forgotten very soon. One of the most enjoyable was the Thanksgiving Party at Jackson Drive Hall. Another was a Christmas Party at the same place. As it was the season of friendship, gifts, and jovful-ncss, the members of the society exchanged gifts to show that each and every one had caught the spirit of Christmas. The Senior Walthcr League of the Bethlehem Church entertained the N. L. S. at a Valentine's Party held in Oakland Avenue hall. All of the N. L. S. members had a pleasant and enjoyable time. The society went on a hike the first part of May. The route led past the cemetery to Sunset Point where a fire was built as a preliminary to a real feed. The members then hiked back to Oakland Avenue Hall and spent an hour playing games. Each member had the privilege of inviting a friend so there was a crowd of fifty out on this hike which will be one of the many happenings of this school year which will not be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to be present. On May third, the Bethlehem Walthcr League was entertained at a May Day Party. This affair was held at Oakland Avenue Hall, and as usual everyone was happy. A short program was given by members of the X. L. S.. after which games were played. Both the Walthcr League and X. L. S. had a large delegation at the party, for they knew what they would miss if they could not attend. The last of the parties for this year was an excursion. An excursion was held last year and some of the members reported that they had a better time on the excursion than at any other party attended last year, so the members had an incentive for repeating it this year. That all of these parties have been held and that they “went over big” shows that the Society has done much in the way of carrying out its chief aim and purpose. It is now the endeavor of the members to help the society come to the foreground in the social life of the Oshkosh Xormal.

Seeing as how the Humor department of this Quiver is getting mighty tired of being driven onto longer hours with no more pay by you just because the book has to have more wise cracks back in the “ad" section, we thought we would write and tell you that we aren’t at all satisfied. If you want some good jokes why don’t you go and read some in the old Quivers—probably no one has ever read them anyway. All that we can say for the rest of the jokes in here is that if they aren’t new it isn't our fault. 1 f you haven’t got enough now tell them this bed time story and put them all to sleep.

Today we have our picnic.” O’Konski: "Are you the man who cut my hair the last time?" Barber: "1 couldn’t he. sir. I’ve only been here a year.” A. Beaman: "It it weren’t for the fact that we are in a canoe, 1 would kiss you.” Trudy Haenscn: "Take me to shore instantly.” that "Cliidren, behold the Chimpanzee! lie sits on the ancestral tree, From which toe sprang in Ages gone, I'm glad toe sprang-had toe held on We might, for all that I can say, He horrid Chimpanzees today.” Wrage: "Who was the strongest man in Rome?” J. Nelson: "Ccasar. He pitched his tent across the Rhine.” ittkopf: "What’s the difference be- tween the jingle of the American dollar and the Chinese Yen?” Cardiff: "One is the chink of the coin and the other is the coin of the Chink.” We have read this one in Mr. Hewitt's book and wonder just where he heard it.

C. Penney Company prefer to fix a price on their merchandise that will give a reasonable profit, and then continue it. One does not like to spend money, only to find the same article in the window next day marked "Reduced! Special Sale!" We do not believe in this uncertain policy, and always give all of our customers the same square deal. That we are succeeding in popularizing this policy is evidenced by the fact that our stores did a business of over a hundred million last year. uiiuHiiiiiiiiuiiiuiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiniMiiuHiMiiuiiiiiiiiiiniiiuiuiiitiiiiiiniiiniimiuiiiniiiaiiuiiniiiHiiiiuumimiiiuiimiiniiiiiiniimmiiiMituiiuimiiiuuMiumHiiniiMiiiuiiiiiiuiiiiiuuia TICKETS, PI.EASE WHEN DID HE PROPOSE?

Simplicity, which makes reading easy, is what we should strive for in advertising, or in the printed word for whatever purpose it is issued.
