Pate iS ( -VPl JOCXL.OA Year of Progress Fach year the march of events in the annals of the school presents outstanding occurrences to which the student body and faculty ! x k hack in after years as high spots in its history. 'I "he milestones which mark the year of 1917-1928, however, seem to record achievements of more far reaching importance than those of any recent year. 'ITic attainments of this year, in the main, chronicle the fulfillment of long cherished hopes and aims for the higher standards and standing of the school. With the opening of school last September, the new name of "State Teachers College" went into effect, replacing the name "State Normal School." by which the institution had been known since its founding in 1869. The change of name in itself would mean little, but the recognition and assumption of full college rating and standards implied in the change of name signifies much and thrills us as a high goal at last attained. In February. 1918. at the annual meeting of the American Association of Teachers (Alleges in Boston, the school was accredited as a Class A teachers college under the standards of that Association, after an inspection of the college and its work had been made by an inspector delegated for the purpose by the Association. And in March, 1918. this school was accredited as a teachers college under the teacher-training standards of the North Central Association of (Alleges and Secondary Sch x ls at its annual meeting held in Chicago, after an inspection by its representative. Again the recognition by these associations of colleges means nothing in itself, but an opportunity to prove ourselves, and we arc asking every student and every alumnus to help us do this. We are but an infant in this family of colleges, many of whose members have old and honored traditions CXirs arc in the making, and we hope to make these traditions such that graduates generations hence may be proud of them. The year has not been one of professional and academic attainments alone. Our new training school is at last nearing completion and it will afford excellent and complete quarters for the training of elementary and junior high school teachers. ’I"his building will be a laboratory for clinical work in education of teachers and will bear the same relation to the teachers college that a well equipped hospital does to a medical school. One of the finest things in the occupancy of the new training school, will be the liberation of the present training school quarters in the main building, for the classroom purposes for which they were originally intended. The college building will be used for college students only, and classroom work w ill be carried on in adequate and suitable quarters. This is a cause for rejoicing on the part of both faculty and students. 'The fact that we arc to have a new central heating plant, and that the campus is to be graded, improved and beautified with new cement walks and driveways will enable us to feel pride in the improved surroundings of our college. All of these improvements and changes simply indicate a larger life and a larger functioning in the way of service on the part of our institution. Greater opportunities will be offered to oncoming generations of students and larger service will be rendered to the public schools of the state through these greater opportunities for better preparation for their work on the part of the members of the student body. All of this places a greater responsibility upon us and we make sincere resolve that this institution shall function in an ever larger way in the development of character and sincerity of purpose, in a better scientific training for students and in contributing to the larger life of the state through our contribution to the improvement of public education.

Konrad Coach Hancock The Season in Sport When the last football is punted over the chalk-lined field, when the last leather sphere has swished through the net for the winning basket and the last runner crosses the line in the final relay, the chronicle of the season's athletics is written. Whether it is easier to picture victory than glorious defeat remains a controversy. We have had both. In track and basketball the State championship crowns have fallen to Oshkosh, while in football the men fought through a season marred with defeats, but rich in spirit.

Sc hull: (Captain), Behnkc. I Icinikc. Precour. Arnold. I lumen Football 1928 As for the coaching, it is enough to merely state that it was done by Howard J. Hancock and Robert M. Kolf. Coach Hancock, who has been Director of Athletics at Oshkosh for a long and successful period, is no doubt the outstanding man in Teachers’ College athletics in Wisconsin. In 1916. Mr. Hancock was a star linesman on the University of Wisconsin team, and it is significant to note that our head coach is recognized as one of Wisconsin's best all-time tackles. Captain F Schult: Qj KCT: Pate foOSHKOSH 2 NORTHERN STATEo Starting a schedule away from the old familiar battle ground against one of the greatest lineups Northern State ever had. was the herculean task assigned to the coaches when the team landed at Marquette to ring up the curtain for the 1927 season. The game was late in starting and both teams showed wonderful defensive strength, although neither could score. Late in the fourth quarter. Dahlke downed Hem-er of Northern State behind Marquette's goal and registered the only marker of the game. Zim and Chryst handled the center position; Captain Schara and Schultz filled the guard posts with Dahlke, LI wood and Schneider at tackles. Plcnkc was playing LI wood and Schneider at tackles; Plcnkc was playing his first game at end. Armstrong held Car ain i£icc« Schuits the other end assignment until an ankle gave way as the half ended. Charette t x)k his position for the remainder of the fracas. Baxter called signals with Abe Konrad, Roloff and Muck at the half-backs and Bredendick and Ld Konrad at full. Twenty tired boys climbed on the sleeper that night. Northern State had given them a game—they knew it. The season had opened right—Oshkosh had WOn. C j»p4ain Scliura Page 60OS!JKOSH o—LA CROSSE 13 La Crosse is a tough team to heat any season. This year's eleven was the best that has worn the "Maroon and Gray" in many a season. It was homecoming and the "old grads" were there, men who had tasted defeat at the hands of Oshkosh. Oshkosh went against the "Phy-Eds" without these rvicesof Plenkc and Armstrong, the veteran ends who were counted on to stop the La Crosse attack and complete the passes that meant victory for Oshkosh. Plcnke with injured shoulder bone was kept on the side lines and Armstrong could only be used for a few minutes, his ankle having been sprained in the Northern State encounter. The Westerners completed two passes in the first half, giving them a lead of thirteen points which Oshkosh Clayton D.ihlkc could not overcome. In the last half Oshkosh had splendid chances to score with Abe running wild around La Crosse’s right end. Two passes were accurately thrown, and with an open field ahead, they were dropped by the inexperienced receivers. La Crosse had beaten Oshkosh the first time in five years. They were off for the championship—nothing could stop them. Abe Konrad Pag 61 Lawrence Baxter Ray Zimmerman OSHKOSH u—PLATTE VILLE o Then Oshkosh returned to its o n stamping grounds, in a game marred ith heavy penalties on Oshkosh, but livened by the splendid Oshkosh passing attack with Bredendick picking them out of mid-air and dragging tacklcrs over the goal line with him. Oshkosh defeated "Butch Lietl's Platteville eleven 12-0. Lietl will be remembered by all of the old Oshkosh fans as the hard hitting fullback of the days when liob Kolf called signals for the Gold and White eleven. "Butch" had taught his men the same hard blocking and tackling for which he was famous in his college days. The Blue and White aggregation hit and hit hard but two passes in the final half, the first from Baxter to Bredendick and the second from Roloff to Bredendick spelled victory for the home team. "Abe" Konrad's parade of end runs also featured. Ihe Oshkosh lineup was as follows: R.E. Charette. Moede: R.T. Da hike, Wright; R.G. Schara. Wismcr; C. Zimmerman: L.E. Bredendick, Nelson; Q.B. Weisbrod. Muck; R. H. B. Muck, Miller. Mollica; L.H.B. Atwood. Konrad; F;.B. Roloff. Baxter. Curt is Chryst Page 6»OSHKOSH 13—MILWAUKEE 13 Oshkosh played a typical home-coming game and the alumni saw their annual tie game. It will he remembered that in 1926 Oshkosh played a 3-3 homecoming with La Crosse and the previous year lost to Western State 6-7 before the returning guests. So with the homecoming jinx and the Milwaukee jinx on the same day. Oshkosh, strong as it was. was unable to check the heavy Milwaukee back-field. Coach Clapp’s eleven has been a thorn in the side of Oshkosh since 1924. At that time the Mil-waukcc-Oshkosh game was always played at the Cream City as a feature attraction of the State Teacher's Convention. The 1924 team took a 6-0 loss, the champions of the following year were held to a scoreless tie and last year "the Green Wave.' as they glory in being called, took the championship from Oshkosh by a b-o tally. A long pass Brcdcndick-to-Armstrong carried the ball to the Milwaukee goal line in the first quarter and Roloff scored on the next play. Bredcndick executed another long pass to Muck who carried the ball over for the last touchdown. John Henke Miller Clarence Bredcndick Page 6jVernon liUooJ OSHKOSH 6—WESTERN STATE 19 I he wonder team of lower Michigan came over for their fourth annual engagement with the Gold and White and scored three touch-downs and one extra point in the third quarter to carry home a victory. Oshkosh opened up displaying wonderful football and led at the half b-o. They were no match for the fresh reserves of the visitors and played a plucky uphill game to hold the Brown and Gold scoreless in the final period. With the exception of the third quarter it can be safely said that Oshkosh carried the offensive all the way. Bredendick plunged his way for the Oshkosh marker. Konrad and Muck also shone in the back field with Schultz. Dahlke and Plcnke playing splendid football in the line. Gaptain Schara was removed early in the game, leaving quite a gap to be filled in the front wall. It may be said here that since Coach Hancock has coached football at Oshkosh. Kalamazoo is the only ‘W school ever to have beaten Oshkosh on the home field. Kalamazoo has accomplished this feat twice, the other time being in 1925 when they won 7 b. Alvin Anmtron George Schneider Pate t 4OSHKOSH 6—WHITEWATER 7 [idmood Konrad Oshkosh closed its season at White-water with a game full of exciting play and tough breaks. The Oshkosh passing attack was working wonderful. A long pass Brcdendick to Plcnkc scored the first marker and the end of the half found Oshkosh with the ball almost on Whitewater’s goal line, first down—one yard to go when the whistle blew. In the next half another touchdown was called back when the official claimed that Konrad had stepped outside in his race to the goal. The game was clearly out of the range of the officials, tackling out of bounds and other major violations being entirely overlooked. To choose those who played exceptionally fine football is to name every man on the team. The work of the entire line, the fast running backficld. with special stress on the punting and passing of Brcdendick and the remarkable catches of Plcnkc when he was completely covered were the outstanding features. Oshkosh had finished a season unsuccessful in games won. but valuable in knowledge gained. The coaches had been building for the future not coaching for the present. With the stock of freshmen material in varsity suits next fall, Oshkosh will be feared on every gridiron on which they tread. i-'rank Muck Stuart Mocdc mot Pat 6jJoe Mollica Erwin RolofT Resume of the Football Season Seven men will be missed when the candidates file past for the first practice of the season next fall, Baxter. Breden-dick, El wood. Miller, Schara, Weisbrod, and Zimmerman, all of them having been on the championship team of 1925 and have therefore completed their final year of varsity competition. "Bax" entered three years ago with no previous football experience. He was quick to learn and Coach Kolf soon learned that his speed could be used in the backfield. He made the team in his freshman year and has played consistent ball since then The little left-handed passer will be missed on the field although he still has another year left in basketball. Brcdendick leaves a name in the annals of Gold and White Athletics that will never be forgotten. He is perhaps the most versatile player ever seen in an Oshkosh uniform having played every position except quarterback. In his first year he alternated between guard and tackle and was named all-conference guard. The next season saw him at the center post where he was a tower of strength on both offense and defense. This year he has played full-back and end and has been named all-conference choice at both positions. To list his strong points is easy—he can run. pass, punt, Reuben Charettc dropkick, catch passes, tackle, block and diagnose Paxe OOWilliam Weisbtod the opponent’s plays. What more can anyone wish? If there is anything else in football he has it. El wood has played a lighting game at end and tackle for three years. His strong point was blocking and spilling the interference. His steady fighting spirit will be missed next season. Miller another "find" came from Oshkosh High School without any footballcxpcrience. His spectacular work in his freshman year made it known that he would be one of the pillars around which the next years' team would be built. He could run. block, tackle and catch passes with the ability of a vet-james Nebon eran. After a splendid start next year he was injured early in the season to the extent that he was kept out of the remaining games. His injuries never fully recovered and "Blacky" has been somewhat in the background when he could have been, without a doubt, among the "bright lights," had not bad luck taken a hand. Captain Schara rose from the reserve squad to the captaincy. Always small in height and weight he accounted for this handicap with his hard fighting spirit. He was never known to "let down" for even a minute while on the field and kept the men going also. w«ren Wright .0 c J CTaSCSWSNi-i® (S Pate 6 Wcisbrod started his football in 1925 as understudy to the famous Cider Jerdee. He again won an award in 1926 although injuries from the previous season kept him out of many of the games. He came back strong this year and with his brilliant generalship and splendid execution of the plays he won a letter to close his final season under the Gold and White. He starred at passing and kicking and catching passes. "Zim" entered when "Fighting Tom McKeon" held the center position so securely that only a superman could take it away from him. "Zim" played center and guard that year, however, and showed brilliant hcadwork at times. He was shifted to different line positions the following year and finished his career at center this fall with a hard fighting spirit together with accurate passing and remarkable defense. Zim came out of the line to intercept many of the opponent’s short passes which would have proved disastrous if completed. The tall Oconto giant will be missed next year. Of the men returning for further competition we will say nothing. They w ill w rite their own history on the gridiron next year. But the veterans—we just couldn't let them go without saying something about them. Each and every one of them has served well. His place will be hard to fill. We can only wish them success in everything else they try and know that they'll reach it—"cause they re fighters and you can t keep them down.

Basket Ball Season The scene changes to the historic old gymnasium where for many years Oshkosh basket ball teams have been feared by all opponents. Every afternoon found a varsity squad of about twenty men grinding through the fundamentals of the Kolf system of offense and defense. Many old familiar faces together with a few new ones were to be seen and hard work was the keynote of every session. The veterans were all performing in true Oshkosh style and every position was hotly contested. Saturdays and vacation days meant nothing to the cagers. At these times practice was held twice a day. Coach Kolf was building a team that would represent Oshkosh for two more years. I he top of the conference ladder was their aim. By the middle of December they were ready for their first trial. The Gold and White basketeers inaugurated the new uniforms at Green Bay where the Columbus Club five fell to a 32 25 defeat. Then home again where the Madison College team took a 32-22 loss. The big game that Coach Kolf had been preparing his men for in the early sessions took place on January b when Coach Norris Armstrongs Carroll College Quintet bowed to the ability of the Oshkosh machine‘37-3«• They were now ready to begin the conference grind. They carried the first game with Stevens Point 2b 15 and in the second encounter defeated White-water 2 7-ib.

Ripon using everything that Bob had taught them in the previous season, turned in a 29-23 score over the Sawdust City Crew. Whitewater was the next victim by the commanding margin of a 35 15 score. The gang was "on." Northern State College of Marquette. Michigan, took a defeat from the locals by the margin of one free throw. The score board read 26-25 at the final gun. By the greatest exhibition of coordinated play seen here in recent years Plattcvillc was halted in the march to a championship by the overwhelming tally of 41-25. Oshkosh was again defeated at the hands of Ripon. the skirmish ending 24-28. On the annual northern invasion Oshkosh met and defeated Michigan College Mines and Northern State on their own floors to the overwhelming scores of 41-17 and 31-19. The Stevens Point five were causing quite a good deal of excitement in the conference loop. Superior having been defeated on the odd-shaped Stevens Point floor. Oshkosh went into the struggle determined to win and nosed into a 35-32 victory. Freshmen Couch Pate 71CAPTAIN JOHN PLENKE John Plenkc had the job of piloting the basket ball team the past season. His consistent guarding on the previous year's team together with his ability to find the loop won for him the captaincy of one of the greatest teams ever to represent the school. The team was behind Jack to a man and his spirit kept them going on to victory. CAPTAIN-ELECT CLAYTON DAI ILKE Clayton Dahlke was the choice of the squad for the captaincy next year. About the only thing left to say about Dirty" Dahlke is that many of his loyal followers do not know is that his name really is Clayton and not "Ajax or "Dirty and that he comes from Neshkoro, where he gained his valuable early training by bouncing a ball around the L. J. Dahlke hall. Lie was without a doubt the fastest back guard in the conference and could pick off passes and shots that might have proved disastrous had they been completed. The smiling giant will cause opposing forwards a great deal of worry again next year. Qip«iin-|£Jcct LXthlkc Page 73 a CLARENCE BREDENDICK Clarence Bredend ck finishes his competition with the most enviable athletic record in recent years. His three years on the basketball court have shown him to be the peer of all the centers he has met. He was captain of the 192b 27 five and has always been a tower of strength in an uphill game. It was always Bredendick who put Oshkosh in the lead in the final minutes and broke up the opponent’s offense before it had started down the floor. Teammates and fans alike will miss the hard-working, curly-haired youngster who has given everything he had to the athletic progress of the school. Clarence Bredendick Carlo Ross CARLOS ROSS Carlos Ross furnished the real sensation of the past season on the court. 1 Ic reported for practice after one year of competition on Coach Hancock's cage team and how well he fared is better realized when it is remembered that he jumped into a regular's job the first night out. He has another year of basketball left and next season will find him putting them in from under the basket as usual. Like Plenke he hails from Wisconsin Rapids where he learned the game. OrDCJC c . 7J cj ooc acu(5 iLAWRENCE BAXTER Lawrence Baxter Lawrence Baxter is one of those small athletes that made up in headwork and speed what he was deprived of in weight. I lis dribbling and bullet-like passes always kept him as a constant threat. As the premier running guard of the squad he started the offense and the little general was never known to miss a chance to get the ball in scoring position. He has his final year of competition left and should do wonders the coming season. ALVIN ARMSTRONG Alvin Armstrong, the quiet youth, who hails from Oconto seems to have a hobby of collecting letters. He has already earned the maximum number possible for only two years in school and will be fighting for more when athletics begin again in the fall. This was his second year on the squad since he has served as a regular under Coach Llancock last season. FRANK MUCK Frank Muck, the smallest man on the squad and playing his first year of varsity ball, showed himself to be the speed boy of the outfit. He traveled the court with the same dash and go that made him a most valuable man on last year's track team. Frank has two more years left in w hich to star on the cage team and is expected to make good. Alvin Armstrong Frank Muck Page 74 LELAND WALL LelanJ Wall returned to school for his second year of varsity competition. He played brilliant ball as a forward on the 1925-26 squad and after a year’s absence came back to handle his old position in his usual flashy style. It was Wall's keen eye for the basket that started Oshkosh on its route to the championship. It is well known that ' Irish would rather find himself on the basketball court than seated at dinner table and it is not too much to say that he will be in a suit early next season getting ready for one of the biggest years in Oshkosh basketball. NATHAN CLOW Nathan Clow, famous for his achievements on the cinder track, leaves the team this year by-graduation. “Nero" has played two years of basketball, and each of these years Oshkosh has won the championship. Only the splendid work of Brcdcndick and an injured knee kept the long legged hurdler from the starting lineup of every game. He was quick to learn the intricate details of the game and could execute the plays with unusual ability. REGINALD HANSEN Reginald Hansen, the only regular playing his first season of varsity basketball, has been in the game as long as Oshkosh fans can remember. He has played throughout his grade school and high school years and on various amateur teams in the city. “Regs is now learning the Kolf style of play and will be depended on to fill a forward post again next season. 1 .eland Wall Pat 7S  .Standing ooch Mall.

The steady preservation of school spirit may be attributed to the fine pair of veil leaders who kept the 'Oshkosh Fight' spirit alive throughout the year. Besides cheering the team in the crucial moments of home games, the cheering staff found it possible this year to attend some of the more important out-of-town games. One of the features of the season was the thoroughly successful pajama parade, staged during the Homecoming Festivities. At the larger megaphone. Oshkosh was represented this year by a veteran. Clair Miller, a junior in the division of Secondary Education, was the first cheer leader this year, as he was last year. Miller, who immigrated from Appleton, has been highly successful here because of his pleasing personality, his tenor wail, his springing, erect movements, his beautiful, black hair, and his ability to tell the band boys what the score was. Assisting Miller, was a grinning Freshman from Sun Prairie, Harold Lystcr by name, with an uncanny ability for getting people excited about things. W hen cheering was slack and the crowd getting dead, "Mike" Lyster was a man w ho was sure to get them bawling at the top of their voices in no time. Unlike his superior. Lyster had a habit of getting next to the earth in doing his cheering, and then rising suddenly. For a cheering combination these two men were a fine pair. They combined all the desired characteristics, and when they gave the crowd the "Come on. Gang." the place was sure to sound like a Rotary Luncheon or a boiler works. 1 rj 4k •'Mike" Lystcr « Clair Miller  or The Oshkosh College “0” Club The College "O' Club was reorganized in May. after three years of inactiveness. This Club is an organization of men in school who have won the official "O' or "aOa through athletic connections. The reorganization came through the efforts of "lik' Hrdlitz, a former letterman and at present doing graduate work. It has the cooperation of the highest officials in school along with many outstanding men. There never was a club of its type organized in this school on such high-minded principles and purposes. It stands foremost in the minds of all the students as the outstanding group of high-spirited and high-moralled class of young men in this institution. It has for its purpose along with the promoting of athletics, the forming of good fellowship among the athletes, and cooperating with the coaches in irregularities which are confronted in athletic competition. Many minor affairs arc being attempted and undoubtedly will be carried out in the near future. The granting of identification cards to all graduates of the club is one affair. These cards admit the letter winners to all athletic contests held by the school. Another matter is the introducing of the tutorial system among the athletes. This system has for its purpose the tutoring of any man who is out for athletic competition. I he older men in school and instructors will grant this service. I his 'O ' Club w ill also back to the fullest extent of its manpower, every other function sponsored in school. In fact, this organization is going to be the most powerful and most represented in the school No job is too small or none too large for it to tackle. With its powerful repertoire and influence among the faculty and local business men. it has a great future. It is a MAN'S club and will be runned in a MAN'S way. s 4'm 7a K VD The Oshkosh College “0" Club John Plenke.................................................President Laurence Baxter.......................................

The year of 1928 has seen other triumphs recorded in the annals of the society. The social life side of the society was not neglected in the least. The Homecoming festivities on October twenty-ninth were memorable events. A joint banquet with the Alctheans was held at the Athearn. Many old members and friends were entertained in the true Philakean style at this time. The annual Philakean-Lyceum dance which took place at the Century Club between semesters proved to be a most enjoyable event. The next event of consequence was the annual Alethean-Philakean spelldown. The monstrous silver trophy was at stake. In spite of the valiant efforts of the team, the Alctheans emerged victorious and retained the cup. The final social event of the season was the Alethean-Philakean spring formal, held at the Yacht Club on May fourth. Old graduates, members and pledges alike were wafted away by the melodious strains of a metropolitan band. Between numbers gentle zephyrs from Lake Winnebago cooled the temples of the dancers. All present pronounced the party as the most outstanding social event of many years. To name the Philakeans participating in all of the varied campus activities would merely be to amplify the roll call of the society and at the same time to form a register of the most active students of the college. In scholarship, forensics, athletics, dramatics; in fraternal spirit of good fellowship; in everything that makes for better manhood and a better college—in those things does Philakean strive. Pogt 9JLyceum Organized in 1871 " VV Shape Our Own Destiny' Lyceum enjoys the distinction of being the oldest society in the school since it was organized during the first year of school in 1871. for the purpose of furthering literary activities among the students. In those days both men and women belonged to the society, the change to the present form being made in 1918. Lver mindful of the possibilities for individual growth that societies hold for their members. Lyceum has widened the scope of endeavor so that now it is in many and varied fields. This year's activities have proved no exception to the rule. Early in October the society entertained its pledges at a smoker and feed given in the Libbey House. Mr. Whitney. Mr. Hewitt and Mr. Frank gave interesting, informal talks. Homecoming on October 28 and 29 found Lyceum welcoming old grads and friends at informal gatherings. Lyceum joined w ith Phoenix in the English room at the Athcarn for the Homecoming banquet. Miss La Nora Meyer. Phoenix president, acted as toastmistress and called upon returning members for a few words of greeting. After the closing talk by George Johnson Lyceum president, the group returned to the College Gymnasium for the dance. The society was fortunate in securing Mr J O. Frank as an adviser this year, and under his guidance the group has enjoyed some features hither to unknow n. Members have been given opportunities to take part in the programs from week to week, thus receiving training to give a well-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, publications, and athletics. Last but not least scholarship is a leading attribute of Lyceum. Based on the foundations laid this year Lyceum will continue to flourish, ever mindful of our motto "We Shape Our Own Destiny " % V4Top Hou F. NovUjki, E. I'ctcrvwt. H Nabcr.

It was organized with the purpose of promoting literary interests, hut as it became stronger the society did not limit its members to the literary, but gave itself to every activity which might aid in cither the intellectual or physical development of young men. The achievements of the society are particularly outstanding for so short a career. In the inter-society debates of 1925 Periclean placed second, and first in 1926, and was ably represented in both 1927 and 1928. Pour Periclean members were on the varsity debate squad this year, two of them being on the team which debated LaCrosse, and also on the inter-state squad. A member of Periclean won the preliminary to the extemporaneous contest, and later won the state championship. In athletics also we may well feel proud of the achievements of the members. Practically the entire line of the football team was composed of Periclean members. The past two years the football captain has been a member, as is captain elect for 1928. The inter-society basketball tournament found Peri-clcans taking second place. In track we have had considerable success, taking second place in the inter-society meet, and sending several men to the state meet. The trophy case which stands opposite the library on the second lloor is a presentation of Periclean to the school and will stand as a symbol of Periclean interests in the school itself. In addition to entertainment the Periclean programs have been so arranged as to contribute to the education of its members. There have been speakers both from school and outside, and group singing was promoted to a great extent. Then too. the members learned much of parliamentary procedure. All in all the meetings were both entertaining and educational. Several members will be lost through graduation, but there are many new members, who, we believe will make the society even more successful in the future than it has been in the past. Therefore, though this year has been very successful in the light of our achievements, wc look for even greater success in the year of 1928-9. U,))OOOCIota Alpha Sigma Organized in 1915 "Prepared in Mind and Resources" During the school term of 1914-1915. the directors of the Industrial Education Department of the 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 Industrial 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 the year 1925 the society was 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 Life committee. The belief is that social life is as important as literary life, and that “He w ho serves best, profits the most. The aim and ambition is to lessen the burdens of life for our companions and make the society grow' through its usefulness. In the fall of 1927 another step toward the improvement of the society was made. The members thought that its name should follow some Greek symbols as do all other societies of the school. With this as their aim great pains were taken in the revision of the name w ithout any alterations on the badge heretofore used by the society. After many heated arguments the "Old Industrial Arts faded only to be replaced in name by the Greek, lota Alpha Sigma. Pat 9 Top Ha’u Goldftruhcr. Rhodes.

In 1900 Alethean was founded by a group who realized that in an institution as populous as the Oshkosh Normal, it had become a necessity to have several societies, in order that membership be limited so that each might attain maximum benefit from membership in the society. This then was the purpose of founding Alethean and in adopting the name which means. "Seekers after truth." Although truth was the object, however, a certain Ice-way was permitted and social intercourse and social culture included, in the belief that nothing rounds one's character more beautifully than these two. Reading the index of names of past and present Alctheans. one is impressed with the number of members high in the estimation of the school, with the group of strong and influential girls who are listed, and then no longer wonders at the progress of the society. In the twenty-eight years of her life. Alethean has been the means of creating, between scores of girls, bonds which will never be broken. Perhaps these bonds have never been drawn as closely as during the past year, in the course of which the Alctheans have learned the fullest meaning of the word friendship, disclosing plainly the truth of the maxim. "Once an Alethean. always an Alethean. The spirit of kinship has evinced itself in work of the society throughout the year. The study programs based on matters of current interests have rigidly conformed to the society’s high standard of excellence. The coming year will sec Alethean carried on by girls who have this year been strongly imbued with the hopes and ideals of the organization. With them will be the thoughts of those who are leaving. Aletheans all who in years to come will always chant their "Ki" "Ki" always praise and love Alethean. I'iitt 101Phoenix Organized in 1872 "Culture Not Show" "Culture not show." green and white for loyalty and truth these are the ideals which Phoenix has held before it ever since it was founded in 1872. When it was first formed. Phoenix was a society for both men and women. A few years later, however, it was decided to divide Phoenix and Lyceum, and Phoenix became an organization for girls, while Lyceum, the men's group, remained affiliated with Phoenix as a brother society. This relation, always one of greatest friendship, has been kept up until the present time. Lach year the two societies have several joint meetings, and at least one social function together. This year Phoenix and Lyceum joined in a Homecoming Banquet on October twenty-ninth at the Athearn Hotel. Two joint programs were given, and a Christmas party at the Libbcy House. Then on May fifth. Phoenix was the guest of Lyceum at a spring formal held at Miss Arno's Studio. Phoenix has always taken an active part in outside activities of every kind. She has had members on the school debate teams, in the Girls' Glee Club. Girls' Athletic Association. Orchestra, and on the Quiver Staff. The purpose of the society has been to create an interest in the best literature and music. Lach year some specific phase of this work had been studied and discussed in the literary programs. I his year a study has been made of the short story and the one-act play. In the past few years Phoenix has taken an especially active part in forensics. Phoenix has twice won the Dempsey Debate Cup which is given to the winner of the inter-society debates. This year Phoenix won the first triangle, but lost the second. T wo years ago the group presented to the school a Phoenix Debate Cup to be given to the winner of the inter-school debates held by the T eachers' College of the state. . I The concluding social event of the year was the party given by Lyceum. As} in former years. Phoenix closed a happy and successful year by the annual house party. Pat ,oiTop Row M Carlcy.

Mrs. Mace. Dean of Women, dropped a bombshell into the established order at Oshkosh Normal School. She made the suggestion that if any girls so wished they had the permission and encouragement from the faculty of the school to form a society in addition to the two already in school, the Alcthean and the Phoenix, since these two with limited membership, could assimilate only a small percentage of the girls enrolled. Immediately after the meeting Elizabeth Brown called on Mrs. Mace for further information. As a result six girls. Ruth Raby, Charlotte Giovaninni. Gwendolyn Randall. Ida Priebe. Florence Grannke. and Elizabeth Brown, decided to form a girls' society. The society has been very successful in an increasing membership and in a greater interest in the work of the society, that being the study of art and literature. The society has taken a great deal of interest, and has been well represented in the extra-curricular activities such as fornesics. girls' athletics, music and drama. The Gamma Sigma formal, now an annual affair, was held May 5 at the Yacht Club and proved to be the best time of all the year. An interesting feature within the society is the "Scrap Book" which contains "write-ups" of all the society events, and in w hich pictures and favors are kept. This book enables the new girls to become acquainted w ith their sisters and proves an ever interesting treat to the alumni when they return. The events of this year to be added to the Scrap Book arc too numerous to go into detail here but just the mention of the "Wiennie Roast at the park, the "Kid" party at Marge Ncbel’s. and the spring initiation are enough to keep memories bright regarding these events. Combining all these good times with our regular Thursday meetings leaves us with the feeling that we have had a most successful and enjoyable year and are more determined than ever to live up to our motto. "Forward."Delta Phi Organized in 1922 "Friendship, Loyalty, and Service" Delta Phi was organized in the fall of 1922. by a group of six girls who felt the immediate need of another girls' literary society in this school. Through this organization, many girls have received education through co-operation, responsibility and development of executive ability as well as the enjoyment of social functions. It is to the patient and thoughtful support and advice of its faculty members that Delta Phi owes a great deal of its success. Miss Clausen and Miss Will-cockson have been loyal to its support since its origin. Miss Bradbury has been a faithful adviser since the leaving of Miss Stone. During the past year. Delta Phi has enjoyed many meetings and programs. The main features of the programs have been the short story, lives and works of some masters of art. and humorous essays. These have proved to the unusually interesting as well as educationally beneficial. Much earnest effort has been spent upon this major activity of the society with creditable results. Besides the literary programs. Delta Phi has had many social functions of interest to the school and to its members. The Homecoming game was attended by the society in a body as well as the alumni, who had been welcomed back at a luncheon given at Stein s. At Christmas time, a poor family of the city was made happier by the abundance of food and gifts sent by the society. The great event of the year which alumni as well as active members anticipated. was the Spring Formal. This was a joint party with the Iota Alpha Sigma, to which each member was privileged to invite their guest, held at the Century Club. Within the society circle, accomplishments have been along literary lines and many lasting and worthwhile friendships have been made. page 106Top Rou D lame . B. Kent. G. Ihdc. B tk Witt. K. Otum. M.

No other society had been organized for this purpose and the charter members felt the urgent need of a society of this kind. The society has for its motto 'l or the Sake of Cain. Membership in the society is based upon high scholarship, and talent and interest in music. Interest in music is promoted by having a part of every program devoted to the study of the different kinds of music, lives of the great composers, and their masterpieces. It is usually carried out by vocal, piano, saxophone and violin solos. The social functions of Lambda Chi have been especially successful the past year. Homecoming on October 29 was a memorable event. The active members welcomed the alumnae at a reunion meeting at the college in the morning. In the evening the alumnae and faculty including President and Mrs. H. A. Brown, were entertained at a dinner in the Blue Room at the Athearn Hotel. Miss Margaret Kelly acted as toastmistress and Miss Beatrice Cayo spoke in behalf of the alumni. During the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest Lambda Chi entertained the Whitewater students and turned Mr. Mitchell s classroom into a beautiful living room for their guests. The Spring Formal, the annual formal dancing party of Lambda Chi society was given on April 28. Every member feels that a few of the things formed during the past year are a sense of co-operation, loyalty, and true friendship. Lambda Chi is optimistic about its future and knows these bonds of friendship shall never be broken. The girls not only believe but live up to their motto "For the Sake of Gain." They feel that all the friends they have made during their stay at Oshkosh College, they owe to the guidance of Lambda Chi Page 109Kappa Gamma Organized in 1923 "Know Your Opportunity" The society was organized in 1923 under the name of Val Ferrari by Miss Fritche. Last year there was a revision made to the 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 a literary program is presented by different members. Kappa Gamma has increased her membership considerably this year by taking in eleven fine new girls who have proved themselves worthy members of the society. The first events of the year were the rushing parties given in October. Fifteen girls were entertained at a lovely dinner given at the Athearn Hotel and a very pretty luncheon and bridge at Stein's. As a result, nine girls were pledged to the society just before Homecoming at the home of Gertrude Hanson. The society entertained its alumni at Homecoming at a delightful dinner given at 271 Jackson Drive. Short speeches were given by each alumna. The pledges were present and they enjoyed meeting the alumnae. Informal initiation was held in November at the home of Cecelia Cannon. The pledges reported a "scratching" good time. Formal initiation was held at the Libbey house that same month, but only five pledges were eligible for initiation. Just after the opening of the new semester the other four girls were formally initiated and the new officers duly installed by the former president, Marian I "ling. Kappa Gamma held its first formal party last year and decided to make it an annual event. Consequently, a second formal was held early in the spring on April 27 at the Fagle's Ball Room and proved to be a most delightful affair for the society and its guests.

In 1926 the rural division organized the Ruralite Society and joined the National Country Life Collegiate Club. This entitled the Ruralites to the honor of wearing the attractive National pin. and correspondence with the fraternal magazine "Rural Progress' w hich keeps them in touch w ith National Country Life Movements. This year the standards, ideas and activities of the club have been increased to a great extent. The purpose of the Ruralite Society is to discuss and consider conditions and factors regarding life in rural communities. Not only has the Ruralite Society functioned in this capacity, but moreover it has furnished many delightful entertainments and social functions for the group. This year the Society participated in forensics. The Ruralites entered two teams in the Inter-Society Contest w hich is held annually. In the first duel with Kappa Gamma both teams won a 3-0 decision. The next clash was with Phoenix. Both teams again won. These victories won for the Ruralite Society the proud possession of the Dempsey Debate Trophy. Since the society is new on the campus and had not before taken part in the Inter-Society Contests the Ruralite members feel that they have established a precedent which will spur on the members in future years. The Ruralites not only participated in forensics this year, but alsodidsome work in journalism. The C. L. C. Telegram, the name of the Ruralite magazine, was published with the idea of telling all about rural activities. It contains articles about rural programs, school life and the aims of the department. The magazine was sent to all of the alumni and received high praise from all of them. The Ruralite meetings arc always of value because some professional work is taken up at each meeting. Reports have been made on "Rural Progress" and a complete study has been made of "Country Life at the Cross Roads." the most modern book on rural problems. Pot I 11Browning Organized in 1897 "The Best Is Yet To Be' Browning Club was organized in the year 1897. Several students in the I ype Studies Class, wishing to spend more time on Browning, received permission from President Albey to organize a Browning Club. Permission was granted for the use of a classroom for the meetings, and for the use of the gas without pay. A fee of twenty-five cents had to be paid each meeting, however. if the life of the club was shorter than a semester. The first meeting of the club was held in the spring of 1897. and since that time it has held regular sessions twice a month up to the present time. The membership of the club first consisted of fifteen active members and fifteen associate members, most of whom were citizens in this community. The membership now. however, is made up of only fifteen active members. The club became a girls' society exclusively in 1916. The aim of the society has been the study of Robert Browning's works and the society has been successful in accomplishing its aim. Bach member feels better acquainted with this interesting and fascinating character after spending this short time studying his works. A very inspiring talk was given by Hr. Beale on "Robert Browning as one of a series of lectures this year at which time the society attended in a body. Any girl in school expressing her desire to become a member of this organization must pass a 'physical and mental initiation." These prove unusually interesting. This year, the physical initiation was in the form of a delightful dinner at Hayes' Tea Room, given by the adviser. Miss Ellen Peake, assisted by her sister. Miss Marion Peake of the Oshkosh High School faculty. The mental initiation consisted of a parody on one of Browning s poems. The outstanding poem of this year was written by Myrenc Plopper. The major study this year has been that of "Paracelsus." Time has also been given to sonic of his more minor productions including " The Blot on the Scutcheon" and "Colombe's Birthday." A review of each of these was given by Virginia Cowan. r„ Pag 114First Semester Browning OFFICERS Second Semester Marion Fling . President Marion Kintz C'.ECELIA Cl 1R1 STENSEN . .

Pag 117Marquette Organized in 1908 The Marquette Society, an organized body of Catholic students and faculty members, was founded in 1908. The founders were reverently devoted to their faith and were aware of the great importance which a good religious training has in the forming of character and in shaping eternal destinies. They were desirous to perpetuate the highest and noblest ideals of Catholic manhood and womanhood. Their strong interest in religious truths was the motive which inspired them with hopes of keeping aglow the torch of Marquette on the campus of their Alma Mater. The organizers realized the need of friendship. the trials of a stranger in a new community, and so they sought such a society as a means of further acquaintance among Catholic students. Literary programs, of religious and current numbers, are the principal features of the meeting w hich arc held every other Wednesday evening. Music forms a large part of the programs, and this year a special study of present day w riters has been made. Marquette has a creditable record in the annals of its history. The society has been prominent in the field of College activities, being well represented this year on the varsity girls' and men's debate teams, claiming the school's representative in extempore speaking as a member and ex-president. The society has held social functions during the year, many of which will not be forgotten. Among the most enjoyable were the two informal dances at St. Peters’ Recreation Building. Many of the meetings were followed by a social hour which enabled the students to partake in "hand shake" the pleasure of getting acquainted Marquette is very fortunate every year in having a well-presented faculty membership and adviser, and much of past year's success must be attributed to the efforts of Miss If.

The members felt that through the combining of these two organizations better work could be accomplished. Roy Tamblingson was the first president. During the first year of the existence of Y. P. C. A. some very interesting programs were given. Mr. Hewitt. Mr. Campbell, and Miss Webster of our faculty addressed the group, also Rev. Allen Adams of the Algoma Methodist Church and Miss Grabell of (jingling College, Nanking. China, spoke to them. 1927-1928 has been quite a successful year in many respects. Because of the presence of much musical ability among the members of the Association, many programs of this nature were enjoyed. Something new was introduced in the way of discussions, a round table of debate, which proved to be very instructive. On October 2b. Mr. Clemans spoke on "A Trip Through Wisconsin with a Geologist' which was well received by the organization. Mr. Hewitt, our much esteemed faculty speaker, read one of his own compositions besides giving some unusual incidents of his life. This was one of the most interesting meetings held during December. The Young People's Christian Association meets every other Wednesday. During the w inter it meets after school, but in the fall and spring its gatherings are held in the evening in room 201. A picnic supper at the park on May ib was the last meeting of the year. Much has been planned for a successful finish of the year's work. Around a large campfire the subjects "Zion City," "Bright Sides of Life,'' and "To Judge or Not to Judge " w ill be discussed. Since the religious side of college life needs to be given some attention, the Young People's Christian Association along w ith the other religious societies of the school is doing great service to the school and the community as well as furthering the spirit of brotherly love among its own members. Pm inNorthern Lutheran Society Organized in 1924 The Normal Lutheran Society was organized December 4. 1924. under the direction and leadership of Reverend Lueders. Addresses of welcome were given by the Reverend Schlueter and Reverend Klcinhaus. Officers of the society were elected 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 acquaintances among the Lutheran students attending the Oshkosh State Teachers College. Reverend Lueders and Reverend Klcinhaus are doing everything they can to make the society a success. They are helping each and every member of the society the best that they know how and we assure you that they know how to be a great benefit to each member. The society is losing many of its members through graduation in June but there are still some old workers left to get the society started right next year. The last big event of the year, but not the least in importance or enjoyment. was the excursion held just before the close of school for the summer vacation. The society has had an excursion for the last three years and always had a better time then than at any other party of the year so they plan on making this an annual event. I he attitude of the members toward the functions of the society go to show that the society has not fallen short of its purpose and aim. All we hope is that the new incoming members of next year and the succeeding years will enjoy being members as well as we have. Those who are members now are glad they joined because of the good times they have had. The society has done a great deal to bring many of the Lutherans of the school together for good times as well as educational purposes. The members are now making an attempt to help the society come to the foreground in the social life of the Oshkosh State Teachers College. Pagt 1 2Top Row I Wink. E. Anjtlebcck. R Zimmerman, L.

V Gaher Inter-Society Council Students at the Oshkosh State Teachers College find school life made more interesting by the societies in the school. The societies serve two purposes. All of them unite in supporting the school, many of the school projects being carried on entirely by the societies. They cooperate 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 work. One big project put across this year largely by the societies through the inter-society council was the State Oratorical Contest held here in March. The decorations in the gym. the halls, and the rooms on the third floor used by the different schools as rest rooms, were done entirely by societies. Obtaining a place to have the luncheon served to the delegates, and many other important details of this most important and successful meeting were carried out through the Inter-Society Council. The societies back up the administration and are always ready to assist in every way possible. Extra-curricular activities are also fostered by the societies. Inter-Society debate arouses competition between societies, as well as it offers valuable material for the varsity debate team. Inter-Society basketball and track meet also create much enthusiasm. In Oratory also, the calibre of the work is raised by competition among the societies. The societies also raise the scholarship of the school by requiring a certain high degree of scholarship as an entrance requirement. The societies help to promote school spirit and are of great value to the school. The Inter-Society Council is composed of two representatives from each society, a faculty adviser from each society, and Miss Kelty. Pott U4ACTIVITIESJ. A Brcesc W. C.

E Burk « Social Life Committee The purpose of this committee is to provide the students of the school and their guests with the finest kind of social functions. It is composed of Mrs. Mace, chairman, seven other faculty members appointed by the President. and seven student members elected by the student body. It meets on Wednesday at four thirty, and a meeting is called whenever business comes up. All applications for reservations either by faculty or students are filed w ith the committee at least one week previous to the reservation sought and earlier w hen possible. All requests arc in writing and must state definitely the time, place, date, and kind of entertainment to be given. Persons outside the college, w ith the exception of the alumni, who are always welcome, arc not entitled to attend school parties unless especially invited. Any faculty member or student who wishes to invite a guest must obtain a guest card for twenty-five cents from Mrs. Mace. They should be obtained at least twenty-four hours before the party. Twenty-five cents a semester from each five dollar activities fee paid by the students, goes to the social life committee. Three all school parties are held each semester, so that each student pays approximately eight cents for each party. Pach student member has a definite piece of work for each party held. One member assigns making and serving of the punch to some society. A second member assigns the decorating of the gym to a society. Pach society has a chance at least once during the school year to decorate or make the punch. A third member selects and invites members of the faculty as chaperones. A fourth member hires and pays the orchestra. A fifty member selects students for hostesses, a sixth takes care of publicity, and the seventh student member is the secretary. Pal Top Hou J Klauck.

Buck Student Council The Student Council is the only organization of its kind in the school that copes with the major problems of student government. It is composed of both faculty and students. Student members arc elected by the student body for one year, and three faculty members arc elected, one each semester, by the faculty for three semesters. The student members arc representative of the various curricula. The purpose of the council is to promote activities which will benefit the student body and forward the interest of the College; to receive and consider suggestions and recommendations from any person interested in the welfare of the College; to act on matters referred to it by the President of the College; to make recommendations to the proper persons for actions that will enlarge and enrich the student life of the College, establish and maintain high standards. and secure the co-operation of all agencies for the promotion of the welfare of the College. The student council meets the first and third Friday of the month at 415. Many important matters come up before this group. They officially adopted the new school song written by Mr. Hewitt and Mr. Breese. It is they who decide on the class pins. They are thinking of adopting permanently a certain type of pin. They are considering the matter of medical aid for the school. This is a very important matter and if they decide to establish a system of medical aid it will mean a great deal to the school. They are considering changing the school colors, but this is only in the form of a suggestion as yet. Nothing has been definitely accomplished along this line this year. The work of the student council is very important but often not very well known among the students. It has accomplished a good bit this year, and will have much to do next year. Pott 117Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest The Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest was held at Oskkosh this year. The participants in the contest are representatives of the nine State Teacher's Colleges of Wisconsin. Each State Teacher’s College in the State has the honor and pleasure of being host to the contest only once in every nine years. This year it was Oshkosh's turn and it was with great pleasure that we entertained approximately two hundred and fifty delegates coming from the various schools represented in the contest. I he details which must, of course, attend such an event were handled by various committees selected from the faculty and students. The societies of the school took care of a great many of these details and we all feel they are to be commended for their hearty co-operation. The delegates began to arrive early Thursday evening. Knowing that the best way to entertain a group of lively "collegiate young people is to have a dance, there was an all-school dance held in the gym on Thursday evening. March 15. The gymnasium was very tastefully decorated in the school colors of the nine Teacher's Colleges. A reception committee, appointed by Mrs. Mace, met the guests and looked after a general good-time. On Friday morning the Stunts Program was held in the gymnasium. Mr. Clemans gave the address of welcome. Platteville opened the program. I heir girls' quartette rendered two selections. The Superior Men’s Glee Club, sang two entertaining songs. The River balls Glee Club was next on the program and they were followed by a mixed group of nine singers from Stevens Point. Milwaukee’s contributed several popular favorites played on a "saw. Some of Our Guests Pate uSMarch 15, 1928 The Capella Choir of Eau Claire sang and one of the girls from this college gave several amusing readings. LaCrosse was represented by two very graceful dancers. A group of Whitewater girls, dressed in clown outfits. A gave several pleasing songs from Kindergarten rhymes. The Oshkosh male quartette finished the program by singing an amusing and humorous number. After the Stunts Program the delegates were taken down to the Guild Hall by members of the Transportation Committee and were served with a luncheon which also seemed to be “very well received." The extempore speaking contest was held Friday afternoon at the Congregational church. The general topic was "The Foreign Policy of the United States Since the World War " Donald Gleason, the Oshkosh speaker, was awarded first place. His discussion was on the subject "America s Policy Towards Russia.' Ernest Fiedler of Superior was awarded second place for his discussion on ' The Policy of United States in the Carribean" and James Schaum of Milwaukee won third place honors for his address "The Policy of United States in Nicaragua.' The judges were Professor A. T. Weaver. Professor H. L. Edwards, and Professor G. H. Woolbert. The oratorical contest was held Friday evening at the First Congregational church. Mr. Frank Joswick of Stevens Point won first place with his oration "Crime, a Challenge to Youth." Mr. Carmen Lucas of LaCrosse placed second with his oration "Home.” Mr. John Burke of River balls was awarded third place with his oration "Patriots of Peace.' Mr. Earl Knutson. Oshkosh, gave his last oration for Oshkosh. I lis oration "A Foe of Education was awarded fourth place. Patr uq G. W. CAMPBELL Mr. Campbell is the chairman of the English Department and the debate coach. 1 k has developed debate work in the school to such an extent that every student should be proud of the department. Mr. Campbell's debate programs start with in the school in the inter-society debates and works outward into inter-collegiate and even inter-state debating. This year Oshkosh has made an excellent record in debate work. Oshkosh has won decisions over Kalamazoo. Milton. Ripon. and Saint Norbert's Colleges. Mr. Campbell has carried out a program for women’s debating which includes Lawrence and Carroll. There is probably no other activity in the school which carries our banner farther from home and makes a better and more lasting friendship with other schools than debating. While Mr. Campbell likes nothing better than to sec his teams win. his policy is always to have his teams do their best in the most sportsmanlike way they are able of carrying out. This policy of friendly competition has led to no loss on the part of the Oshkosh State Teachers College. Mr. Campbell has always sent well equipped teams into the contests and has brought them out victorious very often. Every student who has had the privilege of having had Mr. Campbell as teacher, coach, or friend has gained by the association. C. W Campbell N. S. JAMES Mr. James has been at the head of the Oratory and Extempore Speaking work since 1924. There has been a great advance in speech work in the school since his arrival. Under his supervision Oshkosh has developed a very lively interest in Extempore and Oratory. This year Mr. James had much of the responsibility connected with the State Oratorical Contest which is held at Oshkosh every nine years. A great part of the unusual success of the contest is due to the efforts of Mr. James. In this contest Oshkosh won first place in Extempore Speaking and was represented by Donald Gleason, and fourth place in Oratory, represented by Earl Knutson. The speakers were under the very able direction of Mr. James. Besides the inter-school work in Extempore and Oratory, Mr. James has charge of the inter-society oratorical contest and the Extempore contest. These contests are very valuable to the students in the school and by his work in this field Mr. James is developing an essential part of the life and activities of the college. Pate 1 joV 6] The Debate Season It shall he the purpose of this brief survey to note the trend of events in the year's forensic season of this college. The forensic features of this season were inter-society and inter-collegiate debate and oratory and inter-collegiate extempore speaking. This year has been one of unusual success in the forensic department. This year marked a continuation of the policy of holding debates before nearby high schools. The first event of the season is the Inter-Society Debates. This year only five societies competed for the Dempsey Debate Trophy. Phoenix debated the Ruraiites in the finals. The Ruralites won from Phoenix and so arc now in possession of the Dempsey Trophy. The question for debate this year was. Resolved: that the United States cease to protect by force of arms American capital invested in foreign countries except after formal declaration of war. The first debate of the season was with Ripon College at Oshkosh on January 10. with Kyes. Novitski and Gleason debating for Oshkosh. The next week the second annual debate was held with St. Norberts College. The affirmative team composed of Jones. Frohling, and Gleason debated St. Norberts at Berlin. Oshkosh receiving the decision. The negative team of Kyes, Novitski and Knutson debated St. Norberts at DePere. the decision going to Oshkosh. The second semester marked the beginning of a new debate activity. For the first time one of our debate teams made a tour through upper Minnesota. These debates, however, were non-decision. St. Olaf and Gustavus Adolphus were met for the first time by Oshkosh debaters. Frohling, Gleason and Below were the Oshkosh men to make the trip. Milton College was the next school to clash with Oshkosh in debate. Our affirmative team. Hilderbrant, Below and Gleason defeated the Milton College negative at Milton. The negative team made up of Knutson. Brush and Novoksofski defeated the Milton affirmative. This debate was held before the assembly of the Mcn-asha High School. On March 2. Oshkosh debated LaCrosse for championship of the central triangle. Ordinarily three schools are represented. However. Stevens Point dropped out. leaving Oshkosh and LaCrosse to debate against each other. LaCrosse won a close decision over Oshkosh. Having lost our chance to win State Championship in debate, we turned our attention to Inter-State debate. On March 8. we debated Western State Normal of Kalamazoo at Oshkosh and won the decision. In the debate Kyes. Knutson, and Gleason again represented Oshkosh in a creditable fashion. Pane ijlTop Row F. Atherton. N l rvhncr. I) Glcavxi. J Novokofski MtJille Rou F. Frohlmj;. I- lono.

K Below Personnel of the Squad Donald “Tobey" Gleason, coming to Oshkosh with no debating experience, has participated in the Inter-Society Debates, represented the school three years in Extempore Speaking, and three years in debate. Earl Knutson is another of our debaters who came here without debating experience. Like Tobey-' he has taken part in the Inter-Society debates. He has represented Oshkosh two years in the State Oratorical Contest. Walter Ryes came to Oshkosh with no public speaking experience, however, his three years of debate for Oshkosh has brought him honor. Prank Novitski, another debater without experience in high school, has debated successfully for Oshkosh for three years. John Wrage came to Oshkosh from Omro where he debated for one year. He has done splendid work on the Oshkosh squad for two years. Myron Hildebrant, another Omro product, came here with two years of high school experience. He has done one year of creditable work for Oshkosh. Leonard Frohling had one year of experience in debating before he began his work on the Oshkosh squad. This is his first year for Oshkosh. Emmet Below came to Oshkosh with a wealth of experience to his credit having debated and taken part in extempore speaking for two years. Lloyd Atherton with previous experience did work with the squad. John Novoksofski came to Oshkosh with two years of debate and oratory to his credit. During his first year at Oshkosh he has taken part in several debates. Norman Dorschner with previous experience did work with the squad. Dorothy Brush had no high school experience, but she took an active part in the inter-society debates and was the only girl to debate on the varsity. Lawrence Jones made a good showing this year on the squad. Pat »j »Toft Kou M K.J'crt vwi. VI Fling, E. Ahl. lioiiom Kou- K Puicnnn. V. Chadck. K Vlrur. I) IJru h Women's Inter-Collegiate Debates Question: Resolved: That in time of war the United States Government conscripts wealth and profits sufficient to cover the current cost of the war. The first women s debate of the season was held February 22 with a trio of Wheaton College girls in the Oshkosh College Library. The Wheaton College team, which was composed of the Misses Pearl Lowcnstein, Wilhclmina Ave-ling, and Helen Klipenstein, very ably upheld the affirmative side of the argument. The negative was taken by an Oshkosh team which was composed of the Misses Katherine Mraz. Flizabeth Barlow, and Verda Chadek. Mr. Frank Novitski, who had helped coach the Oshkosh team, acted as chairman of the debate and the single expert judge system was used. Mr. Bruno Jacobs of Ripon was the expert judge. Mr. Jacobs based his final decision which was in favor of the Wheaton College affirmative team, on four main points, namely, analysis of the question, delivery knowledge of subject matter, and refutation. In the opinion of Mr. Jacobs. Oshkosh presented the best analysis of the question. Oshkosh and Wheaton tied in knowledge of subject matter and the Wheaton girls demonstrated superiority in both delivery and refutation. Thus his decision went to Wheaton College. Our girls, however, arc to be complimented on the high quality of the work presented. The second women's inter-collegiate debate was held in Oshkosh Junior I Iigh Assembly room on March 23. with the Lawrence College girls. This time the Oshkosh girls took the affirmative side of the case and the Lawrence girls the negative. The Oshkosh speakers were the Misses Kitty Patterson and Marion Fling, and Dorothy Brush. Pat tjtDonald Gleason Extempore Speaker Oshkosh State Teachers College was represented in extempore speaking at the state contest held in Oshkosh. March 16. by Donald Gleason. 1 he general subject this year was American Foreign Relations. Three hours before the contest the speakers draw specific subjects for their twelve minute expository or argumentative extemporaneous talks. They have these three hours in which they may organize and prepare for their speeches outside of what they have already done. Mr. Gleason drew as his subject this year America's Russian Policy on which he made first place and did an unusually fine piece of extemporaneous speaking. This is Mr. Gleason's third year as representative of his school at this extempore contest. Last year at Eau Claire he placed second on his speech. "Can Legislation 1 ielp the Solution of the Farmer’s Problems?" and in 1926 he placed third on his speech which was entitled. " The Present Parties Arc Unable to Cope with Many Existing Situations.' Thus. Mr. Gleason has kept working his way to the top in extemporaneous work until he has captured the greatest honors in this particular line of work. The second place was won this year by Ernest F. Fiedler of Superior. The third place went to John Schaum of Milwaukee. The judges were Prof. H. S. Eubank and Prof. A. T. Weaver of the University of Wisconsin, and Prof. C. H. Woolbert of the University of Iowa School of Speech. v- rw Pat tjtEarl Knutson Orator The State Oratorical Contest which is an annual event, was held at Oshkosh this year. Oshkosh was ably represented by Earl Knutson who represented the school in Oratory at Eau Claire last year and won second place on his oration. "Crime and the Criminal Court." Year before last Mr. Knutson won third place in the school contest. The subject of Mr. Knutson s oration this year was. “A Foe of Education. Earl Knutson’s oration took fourth place this year in the contest. It was a well thought out and well delivered oration showing how education is being threatened. Mr. Knutson is prominent in debate work as well as in oratory. Frank Joswick of Stevens Point placed first in the contest. W. Carmen Luces of LaCrosse, second, and John Burke of River balls, third. t’ot I JfRay Nuttall I nter-Society Orator As a result of the 1927 Inter-Society Oratorical Contest, lota Alpha Sigma has had temporary possession of the Anger Cup during the past year. Mr. Raymond Nuttall, who represented Iota Alpha Sigma in the contest last May. spoke on "Our Government Machine." His oration was an argument against bureaucracy, showing that an increasing number of bureaux lead to an autocratic government. The Delta Phi and Periclcan Societies also participated in the contest for the cup. The Delta Phi Society was ably represented by Miss Myrene Plopper, who spoke on "Sentimentalism vs. Sound Patriotism.'" John Goodrich represented Periclcan Society and spoke on “The Curse of Materialism." Those who judged the contest were Miss Barbara Donner. Miss Helene C. Wilson, and Mr. G. W. Campbell. The Anger Cup is the trophy given to the winner of the Inter-Society Oratorical Contest which is held in May of each year. In 1924 the cup was offered for the first time. In this year Miss Dorothy Mae Smith, representing the Lambda Chi Society won the aw ard, l hc next year. 1925. Miss Gwendolyn Reece won the cup for Phoenix Society, in 1926 Lari Knutson took possession of it for the Lyceum Society and this last year Ray Nuttall of the Iota Alpha Sigma won the championship and the cup. 'I he orations which are delivered in this contest may be on any subject but they must be original. The contestants begin work on their oration soon after school starts in the fall, and continue working during the school year. Pat 1 j6L IW»dl. L. Jones. B Nichols 1.. Bosnian Inter-Society Debaters Question ‘ Resolved. That the United States Should ('case to Protect by Force of Arms American Capital Invested in Foreign Countries Fxcept After Formal Declaration of War." The Ruralite Society accomplished a decisive victory this year when they won the Dempsey Debate Trophy in the Inter-Society Debates. This is the first year that a team from the Ruralite Society has competed for the cup. and the fact that they defeated all other entrants is somewhat epochal in the history of the school. That the society has not competed before has been due to the fact that it is composed chiefly of students enrolled in the one year rural school course, and usually one year of attendance does not permit of much extra-curricular activity. This fall, the society boasted of a few members who had attained some debate honors in high school forensic work, and with those persons as a nucleus for teams the Ruralites came into the contest. They are to be highly commended for their achievement. The Ruralite Society teams were composed of Miss Beulah Nichols of Oconto and Mr. Lawrence Jones of Wisconsin Rapids on the affirmative, and Mr. Louis Bosman of Brussels and Mr. Lawrence Bidwcll of Marshfield on the negative. In the preliminary debates they met the Kappa Gamma teams in a dual debate, the Ruralites winning these debates. A triangle was formed by the Phoenix. Pcriclean and Lyceum Societies. From these debates Phoenix emerged victorious, but went down to defeat before the Ruralites in two hard-fought battles. This left the Ruralites with the forensic championship of the school and temporary possession of the Dempsey Debate Trophy. 117Top Row: M. Plof)pcr. I I WcJnwd, l£. AracncMi.

Girls' Glee Club The Girls' Glee Club is another of the musical bodies which has made possible the reputation of the Oshkosh State Teachers College. This organization is not only entertaining but highly valued by the members as an educational factor of merit. This group of musicians has done exceptionally fine work this year although they have had few opportunities to display their accomplishments. The most distinguished undertaking of the Glee Club was their assistance in making the presentation of the Messiah a success. The direction and supervision of the activities of the Girls’ Glee Club has been in charge of Mr. J. A. Brcese. who through his untiring efforts has endeavored to make this a worthwhile organization.

In spite of the entrance of ten new members, however. Mr. Brccse was again faced with the perennial problem of securing tenors to fill the places of graduating reliables. The purpose of the Men s Glee Club has been to get students of average ability to rehearse and perform for mutual improvement, rather than to limit the membership to the outstanding ability of the school. Working with a good supply of new music, the organization has been extremely successful in carrying out that ideal, and the results have been especially gratifying. The important concert of the year, of course, was the singing of Handel's "The Messiah, an oratorie which was presented in conjunction with the Oshkosh Community Chorus and the Girls" Glee Club on December 21. On January 7-8. the Glee Club appeared on the stage of the Oshkosh Theater decked out in negro costume and besmurched with burnt cork, to lend vocal color to the theatre stage show of the week, which was entitled " Plantation Daze.’’ The solo work of the club was done this season by Howard Emerson, a senior from Pond du Lac. As in other years, the outstanding talent of the organization has been segregated to form an active Men's Quartette. Membership: Tenors—Clarence Bruness. Nathan Clow. John Goodrich, Raymond Henke, Thomas Jones. Joe Mollica, and Marion Poulton. Basses—Carlton Beer, J. B. Clayton. Howard Emerson. Lawrence Jones. Roland Kasscbaum. Charles Roeder, James Schram, Joe Slabosheski. and Pieter Vcrvloet. ’« » 1)9M Kroarer. II I tv ■nun. E. Coaler. L. Meyer Girls' Quartette This small but invaluable group has built for itself a reputation for which our college may well be proud. The members of this organization are girls of unusual musical ability whose voices harmonize exceptionally well. This is the third year with the quartette for Margaret Kronzer. first soprano, and for La Nora Meyer, second alto. This is the second year for Lila Gorder, first alto. Thus, this organization was at a decided advantage when reorganizing for the year's work. This year our school was fortunate in having Bcrnita Thomas, who has spent one year at Carroll College studying music, to capably fill the vancancy of second soprano. The work of the group has been of high calibre and has been greatly appreciated and complimented by those before whom they have appeared. Their success is due to the able direction and guidance of Miss Lila M. Rose and to the splendid interest w hich the group displayed. The membership of the Girls Quartette is: Margaret Kronzer. first soprano; Bernita Thomas, second soprano: Lila Gorder. first alto; and La Nora Meyer, second alto. On November 11. the quartette gave an Armistice Program before the student body. They also entertained the American Legion at their Armistice Banquet on the same day. On December 12 they sang for the Rotary Club at the Athcarn Hotel. On December 21 they assisted with the Messiah w hich was given in this city. Miv» 'a noT Jones. N. Clow. 11 (imcnon, l , Vervioct Men's Quartette Probably the most widely known musical organization representin'' the school before foreign audiences is the Men's Quartette. That body has performed before a number of important singers in the city, and has diverged from the usual calendar of the College Men's Quartette to give a complete concert during the year. The Men's Quartette this year consists of: Nathan Clow, first tenor: Thomas Jones, second tenor ; Pieter Vervioct. baritone: Howard Emerson, bass. Nathan Clow is the only one of the four who has sung in the organization before. Clow is an Oshkosh boy. being the son of Dr. F. R. Clow, of the social science department. Another product of the Oshkosh High School is Thomas Jones, whose musical talents include unusual ability on the piano, as well as a good voice. Pieter Vervioct. whose home is in Beaver Dam. is an accomplished student of the violin. He performs w ith Mr. Clow in violin duets when the opportunity-offers. Howard Emerson, whose home is Fond du Lac. is probably the most talented singer of the group. He was teaching in Arkansas last year. and. while there, studied voice diligently. Among the organizations before which the group has appeared arc the Kiwanis. Rotary. Izaak Walton League, and the Men's Club and Luther League of St. John's Lutheran Church.

Orchestra The College Orchestra was greatly handicapped this year by a conflict with a required class, which kept many of the members from attending rehearsals during the first semester. However. Mr. Breese. the director, and those members who could, have worked diligently and the second semester started more auspiciously. The small orchestra, which has become an institution with the completion of its second year of activity, was very active during the entire year and received much laudatory comment. In the second semester more hard luck came in the illness of Mr. Breese s mother, which necessitated the director's making a trip and extended visit to his Ohio home. More lately, however, the work has been resumed, and. in spite of a late start, the orchestra has accomplished quite a little. The Small Orchestra, which is a group composed of the more experienced musicians of the regular organization, was much in demand during the "church supper season.' Under the direction of students—first. Carlcton Patt and. later. Harry Furlong—this group worked in collaboration with the Men's Quartette to provide entertainment for a number of supper groups during the year. Its reception was enthusiastic, and the demand evidenced for this group during the present season will, no doubt, be duplicated next year. There arc bright prospects ahead for the orchestra if a suitable time can be found in which to meet, for the members are always willing and Mr. Breese is a most diligent worker and a fine leader. With the fine and varied talent we have here in school, a splendid orchestra must result. If each year the history of the Orchestra improves over the former as this one has we shall very soon have a most splendid and successful organization. KCV Pate i4» Rou J A B reeve (Director).

The Band The strong college band has been a feature of the extra-curricular activities in the college this year, as it has been for some time in the past. Organization of the membership as a parliamentary group, and enthusiasm of all concerned, and a strong turnout of experienced musicians have all been strong influences for the up-building of a highly competent organization. An innovation of this year was the perfecting and adopting of the new system of membership organization. This was accomplished during the last half of the first semester, with the compiling and adopting of the constitution of the band, and the subsequent election of officers. The new constitution gives a definite purpose to insure more regular attendance. The new officers of the band are: president. Nathan Clow; vice-president. Harry Furlong; secretary-treasurer, Pieter Vervloet; librarian. Lawrence Jones. As is to be expected, the usual pep-producing duties of the band have held the center of importance. The band has played at every important home game during the year. and. besides its reputation for creating musical pep. claims to be the "yellingest” group on the campus. I wo interesting trips to out-of-town games, namely LaCrosse and Whitewater, appeared among the band's activities during the football season. In addition to its support to the teams, the band was enabled to give one concert during the first semester. A short, but well-received entertainment was presented at a stage show at the Oshkosh I heater on Friday and Saturday nights. The personnel of the band was quite strong this year, as a number of musically inclined Freshmen appeared to replace the few men who were lost. Pace • “Slop Thief College Revellers The newly organized dramatic club known as the College Revellers ’ have produced several very successful plays this year. Miss Alpha W. Roth, teacher of speech and dramatics, ably directed each of the plays. On October 29, 1928. the club presented the opening event of Homecoming. The "Old Grads," faculty members, students, and townspeople gathered in the Guild Hall to witness one of the events of Homecoming "Comedy Night.” The first play presented by the club under the direction of Miss Roth was "The Trysting Place” by Booth Tarkington. The scene of this comedy was laid in the lounge room of a large hotel. The plot became complicated when Lancelot Briggs, played by Curtis Walter, fell in love with a widow, Mrs. Curtis, played by Margaret Kelly, and proposed to her. Mrs. Briggs and Miss Jessie Brigg». mother and sister of the boy. were played by La Nora Meyer and Elizabeth Barlow respectively. James Shram, had the part of the poor young man in love with Jessie. Love scenes between Mr. Smith and Miss Briggs and Mr. Ingoldshy and Mrs. Briggs, follow with many entanglements caused by the necessary secrecy of the meetings. Clair Miller ably played the role of Mr Ingoldsby. The second play of the evening was "A Pair of Lunatics by W. R. Walkes. Alvin Schellschmidt and Betty De Witt played the parts of George f ielding and Clara Manners, respectively. There were many laughs. The scene was laid in a room in an insane asylum. Both believe the other to be insane, and they humor each other to prevent the supposed lunatic from becoming violent. The final play produced was "The Crimson Cocoanut by Ian May. The scene of this comedy was laid in Spaghetti's restaurant in School. The plot deals with the transfer of a new kind of bomb in the form of a cocoanut. which becomes red just before exploding. Madame Gliserinski played by Betty Treleven. places the bomb in the care of Robert, a waiter, in Spaghetti s restaurant, who is to give it to Nitro Gliserinski. an anarchist. Prank Cashman played the part of Nitro Gliserinski and Louis Heintz was Robert, the waiter. % 144"Ssop Thief College Revellers I-rank Novitski and Marette Gamble played the parts of Mr. Jabstick and his daughter Nancy Jabstick. Jack Pinchar. of the Scotland Yard, is in love with Nancy Jabstick. but cannot receive the consent of her father. Hugh A. Kennedy portrayed the part of the detective. The play "Stop Thief was presented by College Revellers at the Oshkosh Theater on December 12. 1}. 14 The play was presented four times. The play was a three act comedy written by Carlyle Moore. Each act was packed with so many laughs that intermissions between the acts of this play were prolonged to allow the audience sufficient time to stop laughing. The play takes place in the residence of the old Mr. Carr, a fatherly old gentleman who is extraordinary absent-minded and who with his wife are carefully watched. Louis I leintz and Ruth McKenna take the parts of Mr. and Mrs Carr. Trances Piss as Joan. Gertrude Metze as Madge and Marion Jones as Caroline arc the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Carr. The light-fingered member, mixing this happy group disguised as a detective is Jack Doogan. w ho is amply aided by his fiancee. Nell, under the guise of the Carr's maid. 11 ugh A Kennedy and Janet Schuri play these villainous roles. The part of the real detective is taken by Trank Cash man. Lawrence Robey missed his calling when he studied for a teacher instead of a minister, for as a minister. Rev. Mr. Spclam, he had no equal. Ted Cardiff played the part of Dr. Willowby the friend of James Clunney w ho by the way is the bridegroom. Alvin Schellschmidt flares forth with all his vigor and verbosity as Mr Jamison, the business man. who accuses Mr. Carr of stealing his bonds, which in reality are stolen by the crooks. The high-powered police force was made up of Eric Moir as sergeant w ith Roy Halverson. George Rodey and Edmond Konrad as officers. The tw'o huge successes of the "College Revellers’’ have spurred them to attempt another play. "The Dover Road.' which was given at the Grand Theatre May 22. Pate iffQuiver Staff I). Boynton .

I'.ctk Advance W c are all familiar with the Advance as it comes to us in printed record of student life from week to week. However, it is doubtful that every student knows and appreciates the work connected with the publication of a school paper. It is with that idea in mind that the following article is written. As many of you know the Advance is published by a class in Newswriting under the direction of Mr. I'letcher. Mr. Lawrence Jones is the editor and Miss Beck the assistant editor of the paper It is the duty of these people to arrange the material as it is to appear in the printed Advance. Theirs is the task of drawing up the dummy. The rest of the class are given assignments and have to write up any news story that may be found concerning the students or student activities. After the article has been written it is handed to the typist who prepares a typewritten copy to be sent to the printer, in our case, the Howe Printing Company at Ripon. The type is set for each article and the printer then sends us long strips of proof to be checked for errors. Proofreading must be done very carefully and all mistakes must be checked or they will appear in the final issue of the Advance. The corrected proof is then returned to the printer who arranges the articles according to the plan of the dummy and we receive the Oshkosh State Teachers College Advance within two or three days.

Then just as important and necessary arc the columns of news covering the front page and the Editorial column found on the second page. The assignments for the articles found in these columns change from time to time. After the assignments are made the student reporters must assume full responsibility and they must see that the material is handed in to be typed. In connection with publishing the paper the reporters must study newspaper forms and terms and it is essential that everyone keep up with the news around the school. In fact it is necessary to get the material before everyone hears about it. However, the Advance prints nothing but fact. The policy of the school paper is to serve the school.

The occasion was given a happy send off with a Comedy Night program at the Guild Hall on Friday. October 8. 1927. Under the able direction of Miss Roth. Booth Tarkington's "Trysting Place' was presented. The part of the lovesick boy was played b Curtis Walters; the attractive young widow was Margaret Kelly; Mrs. Briggs, La Nora Meyer; Jessie.

The next morning saw a continuation of "get acquainted again activities. Besides many impromptu gatherings. Lambda Chi had a regularly scheduled Saturday morning reunion, as did Kappa Gamma, and Phoenix societies. Saturday afternoon Milwaukee and Oshkosh mixed in football and certainly took "Boots' Armstrong's advice that they "Make it a battlefield." The game was thought by many to be the most spectacular of the season, if not of a good many years. Pa.{e ijoOctober 29, 1927 Saturday evening almost every society in school banqueted its returning members. The Alethean-Philakean banquet was held in the Hotel Athcarn convention hall. The Phocnix-Lyceum affair, held in the English room was perhaps the largest gathering. The men of the Pcriclean society put on a stag party at Morgan's. The Gamma Sigma banquet at the Guild Hall was one of the charming events of the evening. hollowing these delightful individual gatherings, the students and their guests gathered at the college gym for the annual Homecoming ball. The dancers were received and welcomed by President and Mrs. Brown. Regent and Mrs. Dempsey. E. A. Clemans. Miss Emily Webster. Mrs Mace. Mr. and Mrs. Karnes. Miss Ruberta Smith. Miss Mildred Patton. Mr. and Mrs. Just, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank. The gym and the whole school building were decked in gala attire for the Homecoming party. The halls were draped with gold and white, the Oshkosh colors, and green and white the colors of our Milwaukee competitors for the day’s football honors. I he grads were welcomed at each entrance with our colors, and society banners lined the corridors. The same color scheme was carried out in the gym and the effect was commented upon by all who were present. The same old colors and the same old school spirit thrilled the heart of every I lomecoming guest. I aK if ICalendar SEPTEMBER 9 Registration begins, the opening of "The College."

This brought to a fitting climax the season's social activities. The hall which was beautifullly decorated with colored streamers, baskets of spring (lowers and colored lights, made the scene a gala one. The music kept the spirits of the crowd in a mood fitting for the time, and the specialty numbers, in between dances, were well received by the happy crowd. The grand march was led by Nathan Clow and Doris Meisnest who reigned as king and queen of the affair. Pair iftDORIS MUSNl-lST Pram Queen Promenade l-'rom the start to the finish the gorgeously gowned figures drifted in harmony with guiding partners to the throbbing strains of music. As the hours were danced away and the clock announced the approach of morning, the gay festivity ebbed to a close. Quietly the dancers departed and the hall was left in its brilliance. Yet the Prom-gcers had taken something with them, and an imperishable something it was. I or they had the memory of the most spectacular and charming Prom held at Oshkosh in many a day.

And the Normal Schools were without form and void, and darkness was upon the students. And the governor moved upon the state house floor. I. And he said: Let there be light, and N. P. Nelson was hired. 4. And the Governor said: Let the Reform Schools of the state be gathered together in one place, and let the Teachers’ College appear: and it was so. $. And the College brought forth grass and herbs. Freshmen unto their kind, and the tree yielding fruit, which were seniors: and the Governor saw that it was good. 6. And the Governor said: Let there he light in the school to light the students, and it was so. 7. He made two lights: a greater light to rule the assembly, and a lesser light to rule the sore-eye sessions. He made the instructors also. 8. And God created great whales and Muck to play football and the Governor saw that they were good. 9. And God made the beasts of the senior class after their kind, and the neophytes and everything that creepeth upon the earth after its kind: and God saw that it was good. 10. So the Legislature created Man in the Annex (Industrial Department) in its own image (for the Legislature was dumb and ugly): male and female created they then in the Rural Course. i i. And God. Fred Zimmerman, and the Legislature saw everything that they had made; and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning was the sixth day. i2. And on the seventh day God ended his work, which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from the work which he had made. i . And so did the Legislature and the Governor. 14- On the eighth day rcturneth the Lord to work, but the boys at Madison finished not their rest, and so sleep to this day. even to the day of reckoning, the great election day. Irate Preacher (in closing a lecture): If I had my way I d throw all the whiskey and liquor in the river. We shall now sing the concluding hymn. Choir Master: We shall sing 'We Shall Gather at the River." Mr. Talbot: Will you explain the theory of evolution? Northquest: What is there about it that you don't understand? Dick de Hartog: Shut-up! Doggie Dorschner: I didn't say anything. Dick: Well, you were going to. Pajcf 160ADVENTURES OF THOMAS COLLEGE One morning Thomas College awoke to find Room One entirely deserted. Taking in the situation at a glance, and scenting the wafting smoke of Mr. Nelson's 9:35 Cubeb coming from the next room, he surmised that there must be a fire somewhere in the building. “Well." said Thomas College, scratching his head in time with the music. “I must report this situation to President Brown, for I am sure he will be interested. Having uttered this declaration of purpose, Thomas College tore from the room, loitered down the hall, and began to mount the main stair to the main floor, where the main office was located. On the steps, however, he encountered a great multitude. “Why. what is the matter1" requested Thomas College. "It s a General Assembly," said one of the crowd. Now Thomas College had only been in school three years and therefore had never had the experience of witnessing a General Assembly, so he inquired if he might not join the crowd. Receiving no reply, he reasoned very cheerily that silence gives consent and followed blithely after. After quite a walk, they entered a door and seated themselves at tables in a queer room. "What will you have?" asked the young lady in the white apron. "Double chocolate malted." replied the young man across from Thomas. “Is this the General Assembly?" asked Thomas in bewilderment. "Naw. this is the Boulevard." replied the young man. Thus. Thomas College was introduced to one of the many worthy traditions of his college —The Required Assembly. Sentimentality is the wet soap spot left after the bubble of love bursts. Dr. Clow: What makes you so uneasy? Is it your conscience? Nero: No. it’s my winter underwear. Bob: Tom's been turned down by three girls in succession.

After demolishing the fourth case, he struggled back to the Quiver office in triumph waving a manuscript containing queer figures, which he afterward identified to us as the writing either of some ancient tribe or of Doctor Farley. This valuable account has been translated into something resembling the English equivalent, and containing as far as possible the original spirit of the thing, after days and seconds of laborious toil on the part of Joe Shouk. of the Industrial Department. In the knowledge that its possession will be greatly appreciated by the members, not only of the History department. but also by those of the department of Exceptional Children, we present it below, as prepared by Mr. Schlitz: Let us on to the setting of our little traveloque. This piece is set in a western college town of the American continent. As Act I opens, the curtain is drawn back to disclose a large, bare room, containing tables and chairs, a clock, some ladies, some co-eds, much gossip, and a slight trace of nitrous oxide. In the foreground appears a heap of papers on which fifteen men arc prostrate. There are also some books in the room. This is the library. As is customary in a tragedy of this nature, the action is preceded by a number of futile attempts by the stage hands to mimic thunder, lightning, the approach of hoofs in the distance, and the sounds of struggle in the darkness.

He was going to join his beautiful LENA—bull of GRACE. All of a sudden a PAYNE seemed to PIERCE through his head. Where would he find his LENA? He would write and ask her for her address. He would send her a CARDIFF he could only WRIGHT! How he did PINE for LENA with her Ruby and Pearl gems! But he felt YOUNG with hope and antipathy. He would plod the MUCK and MEYER—he would BUCK the BROADBAND— till he found her. And then too—another thought consoles him. A girl with DEWITT of LENA would certainly soon miss her poor old pa and find him before it was time for him to ROLOFF and NOCK at the gates of the Great Unknown. That’s all I can DUE.
