Young People's Christian Association
Organized in 1926
The Young People’s Christian Association was formed during the second semester of 1026 by the union of the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Christian Associations. 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.

Normal Lutheran Society
Organized in 1924
The Normal Lutheran Society was organized December 4. 1924 under the direction and leadership of Rev. 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.
