Silent thou art unless stroked by the idle or curious, Then sounds a soft sweet sigh that clings like the kiss of a mother. P. M.

The question arose whether all of the normals should be so authorized and at a meeting of regents and presidents of the normal schools it was decided that each normal might grant degrees in special courses. Beginning with june, 1927, the Platteville Normal has the right to grant degrees to students finishing the four year courses in lnddstrial Arts and Agriculture. After July 1, 1927, the power will be given to grant degrees to students com- pleting the four year course for high school teachers and after this time the normal schools will be known as teachers colleges. Owing to these changes the faculty of the Platteville Normal deemed it necessary to bring about a reorganization in the classification of students. Previously the students were classed as juniors and Seniors regardless of the number of years which they might spend in school. The new plan which is being used this year is to reclassify the students into the four groups: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. The student enters the class according to the number of years in his course. With the new plan a student does not con- tinue a member of one class for a number of years as previously in the three and four year courses. However, there are unsatisfactory phases to this plan and its merits will be discovered only by trial. izbl President . Vice-President Secretary .

However, there were a number of pledges and many names on the waiting list so that before Christmas the society had reached its full quota of sixty members. An interesting fact in regard to the members of the society is that three of the girls have mothers or grandmothers who are alumnae sisters. Marian Kopp is a granddaughter of Katherine McGregor Hutton and a daughter of Emily Hutton Kopp, both alumnae members of the society. Kathryn Adams's grand- mother, Louise Richardson Le Vake, is a former Athenaeum member, and Margaret jones's mother, Margaret Tormey Jones, is also an Athenaeum alumna. Varied programs have been given during the year by the members. These programs have been chiefly literary, though there have been some very Fine musical and amusing programs. During the course of the year Miss Durant has read three books to the girls, each book being followed by an interesting discussion and review in which all the girls took part. One program consisted of a debate on the question: Resolved, that Macbeth was responsible for his own downfall. The Athenaeum girls are always ready to co-operate in anything sponsored by the school For the Homecoming parade the girls prepared an attractive Halloween float. At the time of the Open House many of the girls helped in the entertainment of the guests. Top Row: Matthys. Starkey. Walter. Vesperman. Cupp, Schuster I Bottom Raw: Shanley. Jones. Davis.

BENJAMIN DAVIS MELVIN MATTHYS No meetings of the Philadelphian Forum were held at the beginning of the year on account of the lack of interest shown by the old members. However, early in the semester, Mr. Wilkerson gathered together a few of the boys who were really interested in building up the society. The work of the flrst semester consisted chiefiy in the reorganization of the society. In the programs the chief emphasis was placed on the practice of forensic activities. Two members of the Normal debating teams and one orator are active members of the society. They received their initial training in the Philadelphian programs for which the Philadelphian should receive much credit. By the beginning of the second semester the society had reached that stage in which it was possible to begin some really constructive work. At this time a good program was outlined, which proved to be of interest and value to all the members. - The Philadelphian boys have always been willing to help promote school affairs. They prepared a clever Hoat for the Homecoming parade, and were of much service at the time of the Open House. Mr. Wilkerson and his small group of workers deserve much credit for the advancement the society has shown during the year. iszi Ht.l J f s lJ ll :l 2 1f v' J J i x Top Row: 3. Dittmar.

ALICE STOVALL :E o v fv The local chapter of the Young Women's Christian Association, which haslv a membership of about forty, is one of the most active organizations of the school. Meetings are held every Thursday afternoon. The programs this year have been given over largely to discussions of the mental, the moral, and the physical sides of a girl's life. At times members of the faculty and other friends of the society have taken part in these weekly programs. The girls have also had some good times. At the beginning of the year, the Y. W. C. At girls invited all the girls in school to a mixer. Since the mixer there have been two other parties for members of the society only. The girls sponsored several successful matinee dances in the gymnasium. During the spring they also presented a play, HThose Husbands 0f Oursf in the auditorium. iszl Top Row: Bell, Corbin, Clennon.

The ability to stand upon one's feet and to think and speak logically and convincingly is of much value. This training is acquired in the 3C Club, which is an organization taking care of the social life of the rural group, making them contributors to the spirit of the larger unit. - The work of the 3C Club has been unusually vigorous this year. Members have caught the spirit of the club, have entered into the parliamentary work, appeared on programs, and have thoroughly enjoyed the friendships formed during the social hours. The meetings are held in the girls' gymnasium 0n the first and third Mon- days of each school month, between the hours of seven and nine P. M. The members of the club gave a delightful program at the coon-chicken dinner given at the demonstration school. The 3C float is always an attractive feature of the Homecoming parade and this year was no exception. The school year usually closes with a picnic which always proves a delight- ful conclusion to a happy, prohtable year. x ;XJ"THENFxX . DloNEE 1n V MF ' AIME Top Row: Saxe. Steimle. Peacock, Mink.

The de- partment grew steadily from year to year and included more and more work for the Normal school students. In 1908 the Board of Regents of State Normal School gave the Platteville Normal School the right to train teachers in Manual Arts. Five, three, and two year courses were offered until the close of the school year 1924-25. At that time most of the five and two year courses in the School were eliminated. The end of the school year 1926-27 flnds Platte- Ville with short courses in only one or two departments, the others being placed on a four year basis with work leading to a degree. The Department of In- dustrial Arts was one of the first to be given this privilege, and now offers courses leading to a degree of BB. in Industrial Arts. The department continues to grow. This year, a job print shop has been equipped, and is in operation under the direction of Mr. V. M. Russell. Many new books on Industrial Arts subjects have been added to the library of the department. I V , ' Tab Row: Gilberrson. Edge. Bloyer, S. Freeman. Vesperman. Stucky, J. Freeman, Heffernan.

Morris Vesperman directed work with a class of purebred Duroc-Jersey swine and a class of fat hogs. Wilson Penberthy and Robert Heffernan conducted the judging of a class of Guernsey heifers and a class of Guernsey cows. jack Bailey was in charge of a class of Shropshire ewes. The scoring of the high school competitors was checked with the decisions of the judges and the immense work of correcting their papers was also done by members of the club. ;'7TF'Ef pmm; inky awrw,mg.:4$.ww.

Q 6;? :1WST1a-3fi6D!ONEEQM The Pioneer The first annual 0f the Platteville State Normal School was issued in June, 1895, by the Senior Class. The first annual appeared without a distinctive name and since that time the Senior class has published the book yearly under many different titles. The first annual appearing under a specific name was the "Bone 0f Contention" published by the class of 1896. No class was satisfled with the title of the annual of the preceding year and each succeeding class renamed its own yearbook. Among the many names given are: iiMakio," 1897; .iTh'e Spectrum," 1898-1903; i'Bonhomief' 1905;iiThe Eagle's Nest," 1906; ank Leaves," 1907; "The Tigers Lair," 1908; and "Silver Tips," 1909. In 1910 the Senior Class, not satisfied with the change of names yearly, in- stituted a name contest in which the whole school participated. The title "The Pioneer" was finally adopted as a permanent name by a vote of the school, this name having been suggested by Dr. Duncan McGregor. The name is symbolical of all the institutions in the Platteville Normal School. It repre- sents the spirit of the school in all its activities, the school being a Pioneer at all times. Throughout the years in which the annual has been published, students have looked forward to its publication with interest, and graduates turn its leaves and relive the days which they spent in the Normal. It has always been the policy of the annual staffs to give an interesting, true, and exact record of events so that in years to come the book might be a living history of student life at Platteville. The yearbook of 1926 was one of the best ever published by a Senior Class in Platteville. It was awarded an All American rating by the Central Inter- scholastic Press Association, an organization which sponsors contests for news- papers, magazines, and yearbooks. HThe Pioneer" was entered in the class to which teachers' colleges having an attendance from 300-699 students belong and received a score of 913 out of a possible 1000. To this score was added a bonus of 100, which is given to books whose financial statements show that all financial obligations have been met. The total score with the bonuses was therefore 1013. Since books from all sections of the United States are entered in this contest, it is not an insignificant honor which has come to the class of 1926. Honor ratings are separated into five classes which are: All American Honor Rating, First Class Honor Rating, Second Class Hondr Rating, Third Class Honor Rating, and Fourth Class with no Honors. The staff of the yearbook of 1926 have received recognition for their work which should be a source of gratification to them. All the annuals in years to come will strive to maintain the record set by the 1926 annual. i60l Top Row: Andrew. Gray Andgrson. Culver. Teasdale. Slothower. Laughton.

Thirty minutes a day have been given over to practice in preparation for the programs, and, although practically one half of the members are new this year, the organization continues to be one of which the school is justly proud. The chorus has gained much popularity out of town as well as at home and thus has proved a great booster for the school. A regular schedule of programs given in co-operation with the men's quartette was arranged as follows: Chapel, February 1 I ; Platteville, February 25 ; Livingston, March 15; Muscoda, March 24; Highland, March 29. , t H ,' e Guerdon Gabel Earle lf'ey ' v Q eodore Millman t - ..- .

GUERDON GABEL The Platteville Normal Quartette is a group of boys who have sung success- fully together for the past two years. This group has been in great demand in programs of school, city, and out of town affairs. The boys have sung for the Kiwanis Club, the Elks, the Masons, and at the Father and Son Banquet, the Auto Show, the Faculty Open House, Normal athletic benefits, the Ag Round Up, and different Church functions. Aside from its appearances with the Merfs Chorus the quartette has appeared in programs at Barneveld and Ridgeway. At the time of the state teachers association at Milwaukee, November 3 and 4, the quartette was sent to take part in the program at the Platteville Get- Together. Three of the members of this quartette plan to be back in the school next year and it is hoped that this group will continue to gain popularity. i64i Top Row: Penberthy Mr. Carlson. Culver Peterson.

Several of the members are from outside of school. The band has played at several of the football and basketball games. Although there appears to be a lack of interest in this organization regular practices are held once a week. It is hoped that this previously strong organiza- tion of the school will gain strength in the future. 711W6f6u1' fHJd ibsi Davis Bird Bartels Fry Debate THE AFFIRMATIVE TEAM 1 x The afhrmative debate team was composed of Benjamin Davis, Lee Bird, 1 k1 Martin Bartels, and Will Fry as alternate. . s E Benjamin Davis, a member of last year's debate team, participated in all of r , the debate work in school this year. He took part in the preliminary debates g at the beginning of the year, and was one of those chosen to debate in assembly 6 on November 2. In the try-outs for the inter-normal teams he was successful, R and was given the place of first speaker on the affirmative. His long hours of $x work and his knowledge of debating made it possible for him to hold this posLi x tion in a very creditable manner. 1 Lee Bird was selected as a member of one of the inter-normal debate teams 8: ' and upheld the position of second speaker of the affirmative in several of the debates. His ability to see the argument and to fo1 110w it through made him valuable member of the team. On account of illness he was unable to take hi place in the Milwaukee debate. He has been a loyal supporter of forensics this $1.1 year taking an important part in both debating and extempore speaking. 1: Ng ' Martin Bartels heId the important position of closer and captain of mthgi' k afflrmative team.

Guerdon Baker, who was First speaker of the negative team, has furthered debating all year. He was one of the winners in the preliminary contests, and has taken part in all the inter-school debates. Although this was his first year in debating he has been a credit to the team. Lela Stephens has the distinction of being the only young lady to debate in any of the inter-school debates this year. This is her second year as a member of the inter-normal debate team, and she has supported her position as second speaker of the negative very efficiently. Allie Allen, the closer and captain of the negative team, has done very credit- able work in debate. He was one of the first to show an interest in the prelimin- aries, and his loyalty and interest have never lagged throughout the season. His eFfOrts have been a real help to the cause of debating. Elinore Loveland, who was chosen as alternate for the negative team, has aided in many ways. Although not called upon to speak at any debate, she has been invaluable to the team in the collecting and the organizing of material. Hazel Hill, although she did not take an actual part in any debate, has also aided in gathering material. a '5 a cxHLJv; de , 'Ws The Debate Season OFFICERS Coach . . . . . . s . .

CHAMBERS PRELIMINARY DEBATES The debating work was started early in the year with a number of debates on local questions. Miss Irma Borchers, the coach, divided the students of the school into seven groups. These groups were chosen from the standpoint of the location of the homes of the students. Each group met and organized one or more debate teams. After the teams were organized, Miss Borchers met them and gave them instructions in the fundamentals of debating. There were sixteen teams organized at this time. These teams debated on local questions during the assembly period on October 14. Members of the faculty judged the various debates. The winning teams selected representatives who debated during the assembly period on November 2. The question for this debate was: Resolved, that the recall should be adopted. After the preliminary debates were over, all students interested in debating, whether they took part in the preliminary debates or not, met and studied the question for the inter-normal debates. The question for these debates was: Resolved, that the essential features of the McNary-Haugen Bill should be enacted into federal legislation. The first debate on this question was held at the Normal, on the evening of February 1, with a team selected from the local Kiwanis Club. The Normal team upheld the affirmative side of the question and won by a decision of two to one. The next debate was a dual debate held on Friday evening, February 4, with Dubuque University'. The Platteville affirmatixie met the Dubuque nega- tive in Dubuque, and the Dubuque afflrmative came to Platteville to meet the Platteville negative team. The teams from Platteville were victorious in bdth debates. After these victories the debaters did not cease work but went on with more zeal than ever in their preparations for the inter-normal debates, which were the objectives of their whole season's worki V? v, 65:7 I K AM? V oloNEEQi Southern Triangle Debates As Whitewater did not enter the inter-normal debates this year, it was left to Platteville and Milwagkee to determine the championship of the southern debate league. The contests with Milwaukee were held on March 4. At this time the Platteville negative team traveled to Milwaukee, and the Milwaukee negative debaters came to Platteville. Although the Platteville negatives lost the debate in Milwaukee by one and one-third points, the affirmatives won in Platteville by three points. This Victory by the wider margin gave the Platte- ville teams the championship of the southern league, and they represented this league in the state triangle debates. mej ' MWDIONeEQh IRMA BORCHERF Cowl! M Irma Borchers, Coach Miss Irma Borchers, head of the public speaking department and coach of the forensic activities, deserves much credit for the work she has done this year. Miss Borchers is a graduate of the Whitewater Normal and of the University of Wisconsin. While at Whitewater, Miss Borchers took part in such activities as she has been coaching this year. She won the oratorical contest at White- water and took second place in the state contest. While at the University Miss Borchers continued her work in forensics. This was the first year for Miss Borchers at Platteville, but already she has done much to re-awaken interest in forensics. Fifty people took part in the preliminary debates, while in former years it has been hard to get as many as ten to respond. The success of the debating teams in their debates with other schools speaks well for their coach. The training of the orators took many other hours of her time, and while the Platteville orator did not receive one of the hrst places in the state contest he made a splendid showing. WOT i 1 i i ' Wk J 1A QT Oratory L LN The pre- 0 atorica coptest was held February 15 to choose the orator to rypresent the school in the state contest held at Eau Claire, March 18. Three iyoung men-George Bausman, Leon Schuster and Kenneth Hockmgwwere the contestants. Kenneth Hocking received first place His oration was en- titled A New Era in Modern Business " Although Mr Hocking had had no previous experience in o1atory, he delivered his oration in a very satisfactory manner. He represented the school at the state contest on March 18. The subject for the extempore speaking contest this year was The Problems of the Middle Western Farmer." Will Frye represented the school in this con- test which was held at Eau Claire in connection with the state oratorical con- test on March 18.

C F ootball The Platteville State Normal School is known throughout Normal circles for its high ideals in athletics, its clean sportsmanship, and the fighting spirit of its men. During the regime of Coach Keyes this spirit has been strengthened by his insistence upon clean, hard-fighting teams. Mr. Keyes has always pro- duced teams which have lived up to the standard of the blue and white, which is clean, good sportsmanship. A yearly problem with which Coach Keyes has had to contend is the building up of a team from practically green material. Coach Orton Keyes This is largely due to the ab- sence of football in the high schools from which Platteville draws its students. Despite this handicap, Coach has always developed a team which pro- gressed as the season advanced until it ranked with the best at the season's close. The team of 1926 was no exception. Captained by Irl Ukei Norton, a capable and ex- perienced leader, the team, al- thoUgh suffering reverses throughout the season, finished with the fight and spirit for which the P. N. S. is noted.

About forty-five men reported for practice the first week. Many of these men had never played football before. However, nine of the lettermen of l2; were back: Captain Norton, Schulz, Tilley, and Walter, ends; Stucky and Dodge, tackles; Bothwell and Ellis, halfback and fullback; and Fallon, guard. With these men as a nucleus Coach Keyes started to build up an aggregation which would surpass the teams of the last few years. Tilley was shifted to fullback, Walter to quarterback, and Bothwell to end. With this core of experienced players the outlook was encouraging and Coach's expectations of a winning team were well-founded. These expectations were short-lived, however, for coughs, colds, and in- juries soon reduced the squad to little more than two teams. It also developed that the squad averaged only one hundred and fifty-five pounds, a handicap which proved the deciding factor in every game played. Mr. Keyes attacked and worked hard to develop enough drive and speed to offset this shortage in weight. The lack of experienced substitutes proved the main obstacle, and it was due solely to the few substitutes available at critical moments that games were lost. This shortage of experienced substitutes will be a problem of lesser importance in years to come since football has been introduced in many of the high schools surrounding Platteville. Platteville will soon receive its quota of experienced players from the graduates of these schools and the winning side of the score book should take on a different aspect. Although Platteville was not successful from the standpoint of the number of games won, the team which finished the season and also the substitutes, cannot be commended enough. The fine spirit which they showed in sticking with the Coach and the team throughout the season of handicaps and reverses shows the kind of men they are. The team played strong defensive football throughout the season, holding time after time on their own one yard line for four downs against teams which outweighed them sometimes tWenty pounds to a man. The offensive work of the team was not as regular. At times the offense scintillated and then became erratic and uncertain. This erratic condition was traceable to the lack of re- serve material in the backfield which often forced Coach Keyes to put injured men into the fray when they should have been on the sidelines. In spite of the many hardships and handicaps suffered, Coach Keyes and the team established a record by fmishing the season with only thirteen letter- men. This means there were only thirteen men who bore the brunt of the battle during the fall of 1926. The lettermen graduating are Beatty, Norton, Schulz, and Stucky. Their loss and the loss of Coach Keyes, who has resigned to enter the real estate business in Milwaukee, will be felt keenly next year. The heaviest loss no doubt will be that of the coach who has done much in the way of establishing clean athletics at Platteville. His going will leave an opening in the athletic program of the school which will be hard to fill. i75l Mount Morris 0, Platteville 14 The annual football season opened October 9, 1926, with a game between Mount Morris and the Normal. The Mount Morris team arrived full offight, corisiderably outweighing the light Platteville team. The visitors won the toss and chose to receive. They returned the kick-off ten yards. Platte- ville held for downs. The ball went over and the blue and whites then began a driving offense with line slashes and end runs, gaining consistent yard- age. The hrst touchdown re- sulted from this drive, Piquette skirting the right end for a long gain and a touchdown. During p . e the second quarter Platteville .. d; again plunged and ran down the Tony Ems' Fuubmk field to the Mount Morris fifteen yard line where the stiffened resistance of the visitors forced Platteville to pass. A pass, Johnson to Beatty, resulted in the second touchdown. The score at the end of the half was 14-0 in the Normal's favor. The entire second half developed into a defensive battle on Platteville's part. Frequent punting forced the Mount Morris players into their own territory continually. Only once was there any danger of having the goal line crossed by Mount Morris. This came as a result of a series of penalties and a completed pass which placed the ball on Platteville's ten yard line. Platteville held, however, and the Visitors never got within Platteville's fifty yard line thereafter. NMLWAUKEE 2s PLATTEVHLE 7 Friday, October 15, Coach Keyes and his aggregation left for Milwaukee where the team played the strong Milwaukee outfit Saturday. Some suggestion of the strength of this team can be obtained when one con- siders that Milwaukee held the powerful Carroll College team to a 0-0 tie the week before the Plattevi'lle game, and at the end of the season tied with River Falls for the state championship. Clarence Stucky. Tackle g 5'7. Everett Saxe. Halfback i76T The first few minutes on the field indicated a sure win for Plat'teville. Milwaukee re- ceived and was held for downs. PlattevilleVs men took the ball and carried it ten yards to their thirty-five yard line. Piquette, on an end run, broke into the open, and with perfect inter- ference went sixty-fwe yards for a touchdown. Coach Clapp of Milwaukee, however, had an- other card up his sleeve. He immediately put an entirely new team into the battle and al- though Platteville resisted for some time, the aggressiveness of the green clad warriors, broke the morale of the blue and whites momentarily, and Mil- Mmman' HWbaCk waukee sacred a touchdown. Johnson Halfback The score was tied 7-7. During the second quarter the Platteville team now heavily outweighed fought hard, but Milwaukee again crossed the goal line. The first half ended 14-7 in favor of Milwaukee. The second half began with Platteville taking the flght to the green jerseyed team. A bad break went to Milwaukee when two Platteville men were acci- dently blocked out by the referee and Milwaukee made another touchdown.

During this game Ellis, Plattevilleis star defensive player, was injured and was unable to play again until November 5, when he started in the lineup against Milton. hX WHITEWATER 4, PLATTEVILLE o Whitewater came to Platteville on Satur- day, October 23, to play in the Homecoming game. Weather conditions could not have been worse for the Platteville team. The boys i77T - H HEW gEfmeILZNEELL" ML hattxx: g F ..... were unable to open up their fast aerial attack and the speedy backfield could not get into action on account of the muddy condition of the held. The first half started with Platteville taking the Fight to Whitewater. The aggressive- ness of the blue and whites carried the ball to the Visitors nine yard line. The ball was fumbled at this point, and Platteville undoubtedly lost the game on account of the fumble. Thereafter passes featured the remainder of the half. White- water took advantage of a break by intercepting a pass and im- mediately puntingi The ball was downed on Platteville's , ,. Fallon. Center three yard line and in trying to Schulz End punt out of the end zone the kick was blocked, which resulted in a safety for Whitewater. Score 2-0 in favor of Whitewater. A heavy rain began to fall as the half ended. By the beginning of the second half the field was ankle deep in mud. A battle of line plunges followed. The ball was wet and slippery with mud, and in consequence many fumbles resulted. Neither team, however, could take advantage of the fumbles on account of the close refereeing. Another inter- cepted pass gave Whitewater the ball on Plattevilleis one yard line. Platte- ville's aggressive defense held the visitors for four successive downs without gain In trying to punt out of danger another punt was blocked by Whitewater which gave them a second safety. This completed the scoring, the game ending 4-0 with Whitewater on the loing end. OSHKOSH IO, PLATTEVILLE o The game played on Friday afternoon, October 29, between Oshkosh and Platteville was one of the hardest fought and mo'st thrill- ing games witnessed on the local gridiron for some years. Platteville kicked off and it looked as though Oshkosh would run roughshod over the blue and whites. Stilp, an Oshkosh man, Harper. Tackle i78i w -hwvtf"fpio-NEEQ W -21 returned the kick-off thirty yards. Line plunges and one completed pass placed the ball in Platteville's fourteen yard line. Platteville held, and Smith dropped back and booted a goal from placement, giving Oshkosh a 3-0 lead. Thereafter they could not gain and the play was in mid-field for the remainder of the quarter. The second quarter started with both teams determined to score by the way of a pass. Some thrilling passes were com- pleted or intercepted, which kept the spectators on their toes continuously. Oshkosh tried some end runs which worked Horn'End well until the Platteville ends ' BMW. Tackle solved the problem of dealing with the unusual formation in which flve men ran interference. Neither team got within scoring distance. In the third quarter, the Platteville boys decisively outplayed their heavier opponents. It was during this half that Platteville pulled some of the most spectacular plays of the season. Norton crashed the line for ten yards after Oshkosh was stopped in its tracks in four successive attempts at the line. Two passes failed. A third was complete to the Oshkosh thirty yard line. Norton again made ten yards through the centeri Two passes were incom- plete, and Oshkosh,' grown desperate, blocked an attempt at goal from place- ment. Score 3-0. In the fourth quarter Oshkosh punted out of danger. Platteville tried a pass which was intercepted. Oshkosh passed to Platteville's twenty yard line. Three plays were stopped without gain. Oshkosh then caught the blue and whites sleeping and pulled a reverse play around the end for a touchdown. The point after the touchdown was made. The game ended a few minutes later with the ball in mid-field. Score: Oshkosh IO, Platteville o. MILTON 29, PLATTEVILLE 6 A somewhat crippled team travelled to Milton on. Friday, November 5. and re- pinkermn. Gum, ceived a on'e-sided defeat at the hands of the ,3 xx t ' "9111s IT; H Ek'v L L H e t "C 'DioNEEW Wt doughty Miltonites. Out-weighed almost twenty-flve pounds to a man Platte- VilIe battled gamely throughout the session. During the first half the Normal boys held their powerful rivals to a 6-6 score, but owing to the number of crippled men on the team, the grueling pace began to tell and the defense cracked under the strain. It was then possible for the Miltonites to loosen up their dazzling aerial attack which finally defeated Platteville. The first half resolved itself into a punting duel early in the game when line plunges and end runs failed for both teams. Bothwell, Platteville's kicker, had the best of the punting. Toward the close of the half both teams resorted to passes. Milton was the first to score Via the air route, but Platteville soon followed, Johnson hooking a pass and crossing the goal line. The half ended 6-6. The second half was almost entirely an aerial bombardment. Both teams seemed to have forgotten there was any other type of football. Milton had the best of this kind of offense and shoved over three touchdowns and booted a drop kick making the final tally 29-6. LACROSSE 27, PLATTEVILLE o The P. N. 5. men went to LaCrosse on November I I, with the intention of beating that bitter rival on November 12. The light Platteville aggregation, however, could make little ground against their heavier opponents. The held was muddy and the ball wet, making it impossible to pass or end run consistent- ly, the only sure ground gaining attack Platteville had. LaCrosse chose to receive and Platteville kicked off. LaCrosse returned to the flfty yard line. An end run was stopped without gain and LaCrosse punted. Platteville was held for downs and forced to punt, giving LaCrosse the ball on a bad punt on Platteville's forty yard line. The elusive Abrahams slipped in- side tackle for flfteen yards. An end run failed and another tackle play and a dodging, twisting run through the backfield enabled Abrahams to cross the Platteville goal line for the first touchdown. Thereafter for the remainder of the First half both teams fought on even terms in mid-field the half ending 6-0 in favor of LaCrosse. In the second half the teams came on the field ready to do or die. LaCrosseis claim to the conference championship was at stake and Platteville was playing the last game of the season. However, the Platteville team although it held the LaCrosse team for sometime was weakened and when the regulars were withdrawn due to injuries the LaCrosse team had easy sailing. They put over three more touchdowns and scored the point after each one making it 27-0. Ellis, the Platteville fullback, played an outstanding game on the defensive for his team. The LaCrosse game closed the grid season and although no conference games were won the season might be termed successful. This statement may sound somewhat paradoxical, but when one stops to consider the basis on which success in athletics is built it takes on a different meaning. The purpose of of athletics is to develop school spirit and sportsmanship in the students and players in all that these two words signify. Top Row: Freeman. Elmer, Nufer. Coach Keyes. Stephens. Saxe.

Basketball The winning of the State Normal School conference title for the first time in history was an achievement for which Plattevillites have long struggled but which they never were able to accomplish until this year. Coach Keyes did a wonderful piece of work in coaching and in inspiring the men to go through the season undefeated. The highest credit belongs to each individual member of the squad and to Coach Keyes for the way in which the season was completed. Special credit is due to Captain Francis Oacki Fallon, a fighting Irishman from Beloit. Jack was a leader, a leader in every sense of the word. He led by example, by encouragement, and at times by sheer force of his persuasive powers. He knew when to "driveii his men and when to humor them. jack has participated in Normal School athletics for two and one half years and during that time has played more, and harder games than any other man in the school. This record speaks for itself. It shows that Jack's clean habits and fighting spirit have more than made up for his lack of size. jack played guard, and is one of the best guards in the Normal conference. Fallon does not graduate at the close of the year, but will return for another semester. Captain Francis Fallon. Guard isli i A'VTHEYHa 9g'rrmoNEEQ" ML "w Basketball .

DIONE Eliat The Season The Platteville State Normal School produced a state championship basket- ball team for the first time in the history of the institution, going through a hard season undefeated. The box scores are the largest ever made during any one year by a team in the Normal School Conference. Last year when Platteville tied for second place in the state basketball con- ference for the championship, it was felt that the team had accomplished a wonderful thing indeed. However, at the opening of the present season, the boys decided that they could do even better than that. They resolved that a conference championship team for Platteville was not an impossibility. They talked a Hno defeat" season from the very start and this no doubt helped to make the championship possible. The prospects for the basketball season were unusually bright. Although the team suffered from the loss of such stars as HWadsy" Martins and "Chuck" Wetmore, promising new men reported for practice who had made fine records while in high school In addition to the new men among whom Swede Johnson and Chub Hatch stood out four of last year s lettermen were back: Captainjack Fallon, guard; Sid Tilley, center; Don Walter, forward; and Cletus Piquette, guard. The early season hopes were well warranted as the results of game after game showed. Thirteen college games were played including the eight con- ference games. As one game after the other was won, some easily and some with more effort, the ambitions of the entire squad, the students, and even the faculty became unlimited. Each successive game won was a step up the ladder to the title and when the results of the final game with Oshkosh came over the telephone every heart in Platteville beat more easily. The hard work of both players and Coach Keyes, combined with the wonder- ful spirit among the men on the squad and between the squad and the coach, and with the absolute absence of any wrangling or jealousy among squad mem- bers, was almost wholly responsible for the continuous string of victories. Every man was ready to sacrifice himself for the good of the team in order that the laurels of victory might rest on Platteville Normal. The so-called flrst team had 3 seasons membership of seven. Captain Jack Fallon, one of the best guards in the conference, led his men in every game. His was the fighting spirit which dominated and pulled the team together when things went wrong and prospects looked black. Jack received mention on the mythical all-conference fives chosen by sports experts last year and could not be kept off this team this year. Sid Tilley, another all-conference man, center and high scorer of last year, played a far better game this year. His ability to get the tip-off the majority of times added many points to the final scores of the games. "Swede" Johnson, the high scorer of this year, and "Chub" Hatch, HSwede's" fighting running mate, are two stars hard to beat anywhere. Cletus Piquette, Don Walter, and Walter Cummings, three guards of unusual defen- sive strength finished up the so-called first string. There were many substitutes who could be placed in the game at times to give the first string men a rest. 1 i Wilbur Hatch, Forward The Season Openers Coach Keyes picked one of the hardest schedules the Normal has had in years. Perhaps the hardest game of all was the season opener with Carroll College at Waukesha on Saturday, December 11. Carroll College was champion in the "Little Five" college circles for three successive years. The Platteville fwe knew what they were up against and took the hght to the Carroll men and outplayed them until the last few minutes of the game. With about flve minutes to go and the score 18-14 in Platteville's favor the gruelling pace got the best of them and they went down to a 26-21 defeat, the only defeat of the season. The first game after the Christmas vacation was a non-conference game here with Lennox College, Thursday evening, january 6. Lennox put up a game battle and furnished an interesting evening for the Blue and Whites. Lennox was the first to score by way of a long shot. So aggressive were they that they got many free throws, making ten out of flfteen chances. Platteville led 16-13 as the half ended. During the second half Platte- ville slowly but surely crept ahead until at the end of the game the score read 3 5-20 in favor of the Normal. Johnson showed his class by contributing thirteen points to the total score. Friday morning, January 14, Coach Keyes and seven of his basketeers left for Whitewater, where they played Whitewater on Friday evening, and then went to Milwaukee, Saturday evening, january 15. Although the trip was rather hard the boys showed they were in shape by defeating Whitewater 15-9, and Milwaukee 38-21. PLATTEVILLE 15, WHITEWATER 9 Whitewater had a hard fighting quintet whose strong defense almost stopped the Platteville offense which would have won them the game. However, the Whitewater offense was stopped in turn by the impenetrable defense of the Blue and Whites. Platte- villels superiority in all stages of the game was shown by the ability displayed in going through the tight defense to make field goals on closein shots, and their ability to hold a conference opponent to only two held goals throughout the session. From the spectators' standpoint the game was Sidney Tilley, Center l84l , j WVAH mg: wlat momma uninteresting on account of the close guarding on both sides and the frequency of fouls. "Chub" Hatch was high point man with a total of six points. The game ended 15-9, Platteville making six field goals and Whitewater two. PLATTEVILLE 38, MILWAUKEE 21 Saturday, January 15, after handing the White- water aggregation a drubbing the evening before, the Platteville cagemen invaded Milwaukee and gave the Milwaukee fans one of the most spectacular comebacks ever exhibited on a Milwaukee Floor. During the Hrst half the Blue and Whites could not hit the usual stride and Milwaukee easily took the lead and kept it. It looked like a walk-away for Milwaukee's green-clad loop artists. The Platteville boys became desperate, but could not break away from the jinx which was riding behind them. Time and again they broke through for a shot at the basket only to have it roll around the rim a few times then Arthur Johnson. meaqutvx L. fall to the outside. The score at the half was 21-10, w both Tilley and Johnson, Platteville aces, being held scoreless from the field. The second half followed with Platteville lltalking. it up" and scoring right off the tip-off. Then followed the sensational comeback which astonished all Milwaukee fans and set a record for coming from behind to win. The rally caught the Milwaukee boys unaware and before they knew what was happening the score mounted until it was a tie. Tilley, Platteville's elongated center, got going, and uSwede" johnson, forward, also woke up. They tossed in basket after basket until the final count was 38-21. Tilley accounted for six field goals and Johnson for four. The sensational part of the comeback was not only the ability to come from behind to win, but in being able to hold the green- clad flve scoreless during the whole of the second half, not even a free shot being made by them. They were completely demoralized by the reversal of form shown by the Plattevillites and did not come to until after the gun ended the game. PLATTEVILLE 28, MILTON 20 The Milton College five came to Platteville on Thursday evening, January 20, and lost by the score of 28-20. The Normal had the advantage through- . out the game although the instant the Platteville men t eased up the Miltonians began to score. Piquette, Cletus piqume' Gum of Platteville, made four long shots in a row, which X R see d to dishearten the visitors, for one of them r arked during a time out period, "It's no use try- in 0 get up where those fellows live." Hatch fought Kga ely all the way and Fallon's stellar work as guard Q ured. X PLATTEVILLE 38, OSHKOSH 21 learly outplaying their heavier opponents, the Platteville basketeers defeated the Oshkosh Normal- ites on Friday evening, january 28, by a score of 38-21. The game started out with both teams play- ing the fastest game of the season. Platteville took the lead by scoring from the tip-off and kept it for the entire session. The First half was completely Platteville's. The score at the end of the half being 22 to 12, which shows how completely the Visitors were outclassed. Platteville's total was much smaller than it should have been had the boys not encountered consider- able hard luck during the early stages of the game. Innumerable shots rolled around the rim of the basket only to fall to the outside. The defense of the winning team could not be pen- etrated and long shots were attempted as a last resort. The second half was considerably slower than the first. Platteville was con- tented with playing a defensive game, Oshkosh scoring 9 points to Platteville's 16. The score board at the close read 38-21. PLATTEVILLE 38, LACROSSE 34 Those people interested in the Platteville Normal waited with both hope and dread the tidings of the game played at LaCrosse, February 3, between Platteville and the LaCrosse Normal. When the news finally came those anxious persons were made happy, for Platteville's champion basketball team gave LaCrosse a royal drubbing that evening. Tilley, star center of the Blue and White, gathered in two of his flve baskets at the very outset of the game. Platteville was not headed during the whole battle, her long pass offense working to perfection on LaCrosse's large floor. Even though the LaCrosse men threatened with long shots and were aggressive, experienced players they did not get a look in during the first period, which ended with Platteville having an advantage of ten points, 22 to 12. Walter Cummings. Gum, 225er k , lst x W?! ukw:1 n. Fl Wtie+vwijloNEEka The two teams seemed about on a par the first part of the second half with Platteville weakening a little at the end on account of the loss of several regulars on personals. After the LaCrosse five had increased their score to the point where they were threatening seriously, Captain Fallon, of Platteville, was lost on personals. At this time there remained but seven minutes to play. With four minutes to play, Hatch, Platteville forward, dropped on per- sonals. Two minutes before the gun, Tilley, a big cog in PlattevilleTs the long pass game, was forced out for the same reason. All this time the LaCrosse team kept counting scores and at the end of the game Platteville had an ad- vantage of only four points, 38 to 34. PLATTEVILLE 56, MADISON BUSINESS COLLEGE 28 Fighting all the way, Madison College went down to a decisive defeat at the hands of the Normal by a score of 56-28. The game was interesting because it was a pleasure to watch the work of the Normalites in their almost perfect offensive. Coach Keyes played three entire teams during the game, each of them a match for the Visitors. When the score was 44-25 Platteville began to stall. Even while stalling the score still mounted up until it stood 56-28. PLATTEVILLE 55, MILWAUKEE 33 The return game with Milwaukee promised to be close when the game opened, but the Blue and Whites fmally hit their stride and romped away with a 55-33 victory. Plattevillels three stellar forwards could not be stopped and Tilley dropped in ten field goals, while Hatch and Johnson garnered six a piece. The flrst half ended 31-19 in favor of Platteville. Coach Keyes did a lot of substituting during the second half, giving many of his new men a little con- ference experience. PLATTEVILLE 29, LACROSSE 25 LaCrosse was Platteville's most dreaded rival and entered Platteville determined to win, Friday evening, February 29. However, they went home on the short end of a 29-25 count. Platteville drew flrst blobd when Hatch scored from back of the free throw line. LaCrosse followed suit and knotted the count at two all. Fallon and Walter gave an exhibition of close guarding which forced the LaCrosse team to resort to long shots at which their man, Brickley, was adept. Johnson and Tilley, Platteville aces, were well covered and could not break away for many shots during the first half. The half ended 16-10 with Platteville in the lead. The second half began.with both teams flghting on a par, but johnson and Tilley fmally broke loose and Platteville's score began to rise. With but two minutes left to play, Platteville led 29-22 and began to play a conservative game. LaCrosse tried desperately to score, but their opponent's defense was too good to allow the score to be tied. The final count was 29-25. Both teams gave an exhibition of the best basketball played on a Platteville floor this season The onlookers saw one of the fastest and most interesting games of the year. l87l 4 TTH ET TR C1 "M? 7 mwfgm N E EQN PLATTEVILLE 40, MOUNT MORRIS 24 PLATTEVILLE 32, NORTHWESTERN 28 Two non-conference games, one with Mount Morris College, the other with Northwestern College were won easily by the Normal 40-24 and 32-28 respec- tively. Mount Morris played at Platt'eville Saturday, February 26, and staged an interesting though one-sided battle which furnished the few spectators with few thrillsi Platteville played a conservative game throughout. Northwestern College was defeated in a somewhat closer game 32-28. Coach Keyes allowed the second team to play most of the game for he wished to save the men for the final conference game with Oshkosh the following evening. PLATTEVILLE 24, OSHKOSH 23 The final game of the season with Oshkosh was one of the most thrilling and hardest fought battles encountered this year. Both teams fought hard but neither was able to score for the first few minutes of play. Platteville scored first and kept the lead for the half 10-4. The second half began with both teams playing a tight defensive game. With the score 15-6 in Platteville's favor things began to happen. An Oshkosh man found the range and began popping in long shots until the score was tied at 18 all. Then Oshkosh took the lead. Platteville tied at twenty all and again Oshkosh forged ahead to 22 points. Platteville tied and then went to the front 24-22. Oshkosh was given two charity shots but only made the first one making it 24-23. The Platteville boys fought desperately for the last few seconds and managed to keep control of the ball until the final gun.

Plattevillek Two Prodigies While other colleges have claimed superman power for basketball players who can grip and hold in one hand extended a regulation basketball, Platteville Normal claims two such prodigies, who not only hrmly gripped one basketball but two instead, at one and the same time. Several have endeavored to qualify for the honor, but only two have made the grade. They are Donald Walter, playing running guard on the Normal conference basketball team and Swede Johnson, flashy forward and one of the outstanding score getters of the Platteville team. The photograph was taken on the floor of the Normal gymnasium while the two men were engaged in practice. Stories had been afloat for some time of the two men marvels and the State Journal correspondent and photographer being of the Hshow me" variety slipped into the gymnasium and ordered the two athletes to prove their prowess. There was no chance for hand preparation or the doctoring of the balls and the feat is on the dead level. i89r W2 "H: mm a H WE+wvlattmNew A half-day holiday on Monday, March 8, was declared in order that the students and faculty could properly show their appreciation in the real Platte- ville spirit to the winning teams which Platteville has produced during the year. The occasion was one of triple joy; joy over the successful basketball season, joy on account of the winning cross-country team, and joy for the distinguished work of the Platteville debating teams that won the Championship of the southern triangle of the Wisconsin lnter-Normal Debating League. Both the basketball team and the cross-country team went through the season undefeated. Both of them won the state conference championship, bringing with the championship all the honor and glory connected with such an achievement and in addition spreading the gospel of Platteville clean sports- manship and school spirit. The debating teams won all the preliminary debates and led in the contest for supremacy in the southern triangle by a margin of one and two-thirds points. Therefore in order that the students, the faculty, and the community at large might express their feelings properly President Royce declared a half-day celebration. The three winning teams occupied seats on the platform in the auditorium. The band played. Representative speakers from each team spoke and expressed appreciation of the backing received by them from the students and faculty. Jack Fallon, captain of the championship basketball team; Eldon Biederbeck, captain of the cross-country team, Arthur Johnson, star forward and captain- elect on the basketball team, Sid Tilley, another stellar basketball performer; and Guerdon Baker and Martin Bartels, both effICient debaters, talked in behalf of their teams. President Royce wound up the performance in the auditorium by congratu- lating the teams and their coaches and commending the spirit of the teams and the substitutes, closing with a wish for continued success. The above picture was taken during the celebration and shows the champion- ship basketball team being hauled through the business section by admiring students. igol Top R9111: Manager Mayfield, Captain Simonson, Livingston, Bausman.

WWW Baseball 1926 W The annual call for baseball men found the Platteville Normal in a very weak condition owing to the scarcity of pitchers and strong batsmen. Coach Keyes also had trouble in securing enough games for his schedule to make it attractive for the players. All the Normals in the southern division except- ing LaCrosse dropped baseball for 1926, making it impossible for a school to gain conference honors. This condition was unusual, for Platteville usually has no trouble in getting a schedule. In 1926, however, the Normal was forced to step outside the state and outside the usual circle in order to get games enough to keep a team in practice. Prospects for games in the future have become brighter. The other Normals have readopted baseball as a major sport. In preparation for the season Coach Keyes revamped his team of 1925, filling in vacancies wherever necessary and started training practically un- tried pitchers. The pitching staff and ma- terial were too limited, however, to make a strong showing. This condition coupled with the relatively weak stickmen contrib- uted to loss of the majority of games. The team was captained by Raymert Simonson, a star performer on first base and a dangerous man when at bat. Ray- mert was one of the hardest men to down the Normal has produced. He never said "die" and never gave up until the last inning was played out. Capt. RaymertSimonson ,, g 01: CWM , PN ?:M W?- . ORTON KEYES Manager .

Track 1926 afzc-l- 0 a The Platteville Normal track season fell somewhat below that of former years on account of the scarcity of good men and the lack of competition, the schedule being limited. The only dual meet was held with Upper Iowa University Saturday, May 8, in which Platteville lost mama. The Iowa aggregation was exceptionally strong and in good shape for the early competition which accounts for the one-sided win. The other meet was the state meet at Whitewater on Saturday, May 22. Platteville placed fifth in this meet, the marks of the meet as a whole being above the average. The team was coached by W. H. Borden, assisted by H. C. Wilkerson. Coach Borden did remarkable work with his limited and mediocre material. His few men showed up well in the state meet, but their lack of competition before the meet and the few men out forced them to the lower rank. Captain Arthur Bothwell was one of the two letter- men back from the year before. He was both a high and broad jumper of ability, and added valuable points to the team during his years of competition. Sidney Tilley, a weight and hurdle man, is captain of the 1927 team. Sid tops the timbers with the best, and can heave the shot, discus, and javelin for points every time. Tilley and Fleming are the only two lettermen who did not graduate in 1926. They are back and Coach Borden must build an entirely new team around them. Captain Bothwell i93i h QAJ UJZti:vi.Q -VJT Coach M anager . Captain Captain-Elect .

The second race was with Oshkosh on Friday, October 29, Jlat Platteville. This race also was over a three and one-half mile course, and again Platteville won 13-26. In both races the Plattevillites finished in 1, 3, 4, 5 order. At the state meet held in Milwaukee, Platteville nosed out Milwaukee by a single point 12-13. Only three schools were entered in the final meet, Oshkosh being third. Oshkosh made the largest score, her count being 21. The Platteville team, coached by W. H. Borden, a man of sterling coaching ability especially in distance running, Finished the season undefeated. Eldon Biederbeck, captain, ran all the races in fine shape, finishing first always. Biederbeck is one of the best distance runners seen in Normal Circles in years. He always fmished strong and was never hard pushed. His best time was made in the Oshkosh meet when he was timed at eighteen minutes and forty-six seconds over a distance of three and one-half miles.

The games began early in the year under the direction and supervision of Coach Keyes. The intra-mural league was organized to give as many students as possible a chance to participate in athletic games. Mr. Keyes has reserved the right to appoint captains for each department and the captains in turn select their men from the numbers reporting to them. Each team was scheduled to play six games during the season, encountering every other team twice. This year an extra series of games was required as three teams were tied for first at the close of the sixth series. In the seventh series the Industrial Arts students who had gone through the season without winning a game sprung a surprise by defeating the strong High School aggregation 25- 24, which eliminated the High School from the race.

JONES Hiking Club Because of the absence of interest shown by the girls in other types of ath- letics Miss Brigham has introduced a new activity into the Normal School. Miss Brigham organized what is known as the Hiking Club. It is a club, as the name implies, for girl hikers. The school awards a hiking badge to all the girls who meet the requirements of the organization. The requirements are simple. Each girl must hike a distance of fifty miles during the semester, no part of which can be less than three miles at one time. The girls report their distances after each hiking trip. During the first semester the interest in the club was at first very keen. As time went on the mileages grew smaller and smaller, and many-of the girls dropped out with about half the required total. Only three girls won badges for completing the fifty miles during the first semester: Sophia Kaderly, Lillian Kaderly, and Hazel O'Brien. The second semester promises to be the best yet. At present sixteen girls are trudging along gamely, reeling off the required mileages. After the Hiking Club is well established and better known more and more girls will join the ranks to receive the badge and get the benefits derived frorn this wholesome, body building activity. iIOOT The Humor Section Perhaps when the perspective of a quarter of a century eliminates the memory of the shards and thorns of school life at Platteville and only pleas- ant memories remain, it will be a pleas- ure to you to thumb the pages of this section and to recall the situations that $1, x no Vt fl 41 a A 'Kua X E N X made the daily round of school life a T, V J ha ex erience des ite lesson lans, t .A may p p p two RA history reports, and general ex.

Several special features of today's program are presented throughout PNS stations for the benefit of the shut-ins. The programs are highly educational. Mr. Wilkerson is a well-known speaker to the radio audiences. He gained his fame in early research work on :.Why They Paint Iron Bridges." Mr. Keyes's soft crooning tenor voice in a series of lullabies for the tiny tots may be heard regularly every Tuesday and Thursday evening. He would appreciate letters, especially from parents, with comments and criticism. Tony Ellis, in his Wednesday evening travel talks with a special feature on 'lOver the Hills and Far Away," is especially interesting. He also takes up the roads in detail and the advantages of a Ford Coupe. All of our audiences who know Mike Heller and Basil Byrne in their every evening frolic will enjoy the number. They will discuss a few games such as llDrop the Handkerchief," ill-lide and Seek," and the HVirginia Reel." Station LHES goes on the air at 9:30 P.IVI. The welLknown baritone Earl Starkey specializes in love songs. Mr. Starkey's varied experience, especially his latest affair, gives him a basis for interpretation seldom equalled. Miss Huntington is a practiced accompanist and capable of entertaining the most critical. i107l , ' IOIONE'EQ" Ml' H T W , . .

THE NORMAL ZOO FREDERICK THEODORE ULLRICH, Director ACANTHIS LINARICA "Red" A member of the Redpoll family. In the summer this bird is found around the Kickapoo valley and hills nesting among the rocks on the steep hillsides. In the daytime it may be found feeding on the fruit of some innocent farmers orchard. In the winter and spring this bird is found around Platte- ville. Its most noted action in the spring is looking for baseballs in left field. Its song is strong, sweet, and canary like, closely resembling a steam whistle or Iirc siren. AMFELMOGLYPTER SESOSTRIS Herbert A weevil, and one of the numerous specimens of the snout beetles, or Rhynchophora. This particular weevil is very rare, because it is an exceedingly elongated specimen in the region of the legs The head is covered with a light- coIored fuzz of three or four inches in length, which seems to add to its size. There are many branches of the weevil family, but we have not been able 0 Classify this one among the common types. This special insect is imported. BLATTIDAE Clinton An orthopterous insect, many species of which are troublesome pests around houses, especially around Bainbridges. They are usually nocturnal in habits. This kind of insect is usually very quiet. It has an uncanny instinct of being able to find the correct location of a certain girl any time after class. It also has the ability to kid grandmothers into letting it stay once in a while after ten-thirty. RARA AVIS Lee A warm-blooded, feathered, vertebrate, provided with wings, which account for its high roost on 93 at the end of the first semester. PASSERHERBULUS NELSON Merrick This bird is a member of the Nelson Sparrow family. It has a white head, a blue body, and black-rimmed eyes. It has a rather weak, grasshopper- like squeak, but with a bold attempt makes a noble bluff at a song. This bird originated in Minnesota and was transported to Platteville by B. M. Carlson for the purpose of doing away with poor bass singers. This bird's present range in Platteville is Pine Street and points north. PARIDAE Wilbur A rare species of the Hatch family of birds and a very close relative of the Nuthatch, sitta pusilla. It has a brownish crown, a nice ruby complex- ion, and an innocent face that somewhat resembles that of a baby. Its general habits do not appear to differ from those of the other members of the Notmal family. The diminutive Hatches are generally found in the vicinity of Rich- land Center. They nest very early in the Healey parlor, seeking the quiet of a cozy corner. Range: Riley's farm east ofthe Mound Branch Road to South Hickory. A 'T Fve'rv', ,-' Htty Lab: MUSTELA PENNANTI Velma A carnivorous animal of the weasel family found in the boreal parts of Northern Illinois and extending northward to Platteville. It is represented in the Roberts house by an allied variety. Hunting grounds are in the vicinity of Apple River. It is especially fond of Mayors It becomes about five feet four inches long. It has aidark-brown head, which is almost black in parts. In habits it is largely arboreal and avoids settled regions. CRISTATUS Cuerdon This bird, the peacock, is of oriental origin. It is a large gallinaceous bird of the genus Pavo, imported from Southeastern Asia and the East Indies. At least two species exist. The common one, Guerdon, is found around the vicinity of Platteville. It is very timid around a group of ladies, but in the company of one, it spreads its loosely-webbed and greatly elongated tail, which is covered with ocellate spots. These are erected and spread at will, displaying iridescent golden and green colors , MUSTELIDAE Rex A musteline animal of the genus Putorius type, coming from Lan- caster, but now haunting the vicinity of Platteville and Dubuque. The soft, thick fur is usually seal brown. It is distinguished from its near relative the weasel by a pair of horn-rimmed glasses and a Ford roadster. Though partly aquatic in habits, and feeding upon fish, this animal prefers darkness or a small, dimmed parlor lamp and a soft davenport. This particular animal has a great likeness for girls with musical talents. BOW Kmi .' es k XIX i f ti t i 1,1 JLyi KC Lu 5J FALLL, 114 rj'frd t ;I '4 i :r,'?fj.r 'q k!

As she's a mere school girl, her roles for the screen are very youngish and unsophisticated. But in every role she becomes more delightful, and on account of this we know she will climb far in her chosen profession. Her latest picture is hSweet Six- teen." With Jane and handsome Louis Schulz playing together, we will wager that this picture will cause a very severe epidemic of heart palpitations among the high school boys and girls throughout the country. Don't miss it! ITHE'rR vrvrlj thg DIQNEE'U EVELYN THOMPSON "A Song Without Words" For those fans who enjoy a peppy up to the minute comedy-drama "A Song Without Words" will make a direct appeal. If you liked "The Sorry Sinner" you cannot fail to appreciate this story of the bright lights of the old New York Bowery. Miss Thompson is a vivacious, Iaughter-loving daughter of the Middle West, who, in her heart-rending songs and dances, makes Broadway laugh and cry in the same breath. TINA CALLAHAN The greatest of all appeals is that of mother love. "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." The celebrated film star, Tina Callahan, will unloose fioods of tears in the hardest of hearts when her greatest of all Mother plays "Housemothers Threei' is released. SAM ELMER This screen favorite is a native of Switzerland. The first six years of his life were spent amon g the yodeling mountaineers. The spirit of the Wanderlust got a hold on the heart of Papa Elmer, and Samuel was introduced to the land where he Was later to receive much fame. In action, this son of New Glarus is a battling whirlwind, the envy of all his fellow letter- men, and a Joy to the heart of any co-ed. As a cooky pusher he stands alone. Don't miss the thrills of a Harvard-Yale game and the stirring love scenes of "The Cocky Pusherf' MARGARET J ONES Margaret Jones is one of those distinctive types whose appearance on the screen can not bear too constant repetition. Her beauty and charm have won for her the love of the public. Besides these qualities, she is an actress of very exceptional ability. In her most recent picture, "The Princess," her work is beyond reproach. George Bausman is the leading man, and also does very creditable acting. This picture should delight young and old, since it is one of the best character studies that have graced the screen in many a day. JACK FLEMING John Fleming is a Kickapoogan. His sunny smile speaks of blossom time in the state orchard at Gays Mills. His ability as a cheer leader harks back to the days when he rooted for his fellow Kickapoogans. Jack made his first great success in the movies as the driver of a Ford in HTell It to the Marines." His experience in Fording the road between Platteville and Gays Mills dur- ing his schooldays doubtless was the first step he took in the direction of attaining a national repu- tation as a movie star. Jack does not fail to recognize the ladder upon which he climbed to success. He still drives a Ford. THE KICK-OFF Captain Tony Ellis is really not the kind of man to be written about. He is rather to be chatted about. Looks as though fccthall will live forever at least on the screen. Tony Ellis is the latest hero to show the college colors and do his stuff. What's it all about"! You know the Lancaster boy goes to college and makes good cn the team in spite of the fact that Kelly does her best to prevent it. There is a modest little love affair running through the picture with the country school teacher and the usual disturbance of a little blonde. This is another one of those fllms you should put away a quarter for. Tit Bits Stucky: iilke Norton gets out of teaching pretty early by taking the sixth graders to the showers every day."

FISHING Main room conferences were on. Bob and HiIa occupied their usual places, but a vigor- ous working program on the lady's part was marring the usual zest of the occasion. Fin- ally the monotony attendant upon watching a girl write and check, write and check, palled upon Bob, and he anxiously asked: "Are you writing wedding invitations, Hila?" "No, I wish I were." THE MISTLETOE HUNG ON THE CASTLE WALL The tradition of the mistletoe was being considered The discussion waxed warm. Ruth C. effervesced with, HWell, anyway I don't need any mistletoe at our house." "Yes," acquiesced a gallant knight errant, UI'll agree with you. It's Christmas at your house every night." "I dont really believe in mistletoe," ob- jected Margaret S.

Second $1 HIKING CLUB ORGANIZED Men Strong Contenders for Honors Owing to the absence of interest shown by the girl students of the Normal in athletics, Miss A. 0. Brigham has introduced a new activity which is increasing in popularity. The innovation is called the Hiking Club. Considerable rivalry was created during the first semester and not only the girls for whom the club was organized, but also a goodly number of yotlng men became interested. The young men aspirants for the badge stirred up competition to the point where the Potosi road became so popular that city ordinances were passed regulating trafhc over said road. The lettermen called a special meeting to discuss whether or not members of the club should accept hiking badges. An amendment to the constitution was made barring all com- petitors for badges from the ranks of bona fide lettermen. This did not deter many of the young men, and the contest for the first semester ended: Harry Meinertero miles ihalf made in John McBride's Fordl. John Eugene Ruggles-I mile ithe snowstorm following his trip discouraged himl, Sam Elmeres miles Oust like the hills in the old countryl. Sylvan Becker-o miles iit rainedl.

Upon hearing of this contest, Coach Keyes decided to in- troduce a new course in physical training whereby young men could learn to defend their titles more strenuously. Many aspirants to titles have reported for the course. Girls may now rest assured that they will be de- fended in differences between friends. NORMAL LASSIES CONVERT MINERS Girls LaPor in Worlhy Cause Miners Camp, February 26,-lSpecial - The frozen areas of the North have their ro- mance, the wilds of China their stories of hard- ships and adventure, but the Platteville Nor- mal has a tale of romance and adventure far exceeding either of these. Picture three fair damsels forsaking homes, families, friends, and advisors to enter the Miner stronghold, ready to sacrifice all they possess, and to suffer the jibbing of the more worldly in order that light might be brought to the benighted Miners. The preliminary work in getting the pros- pects interested in this line of endeavor was the hardest phase of the missionary work. After the interest of the young men had been aroused the girls found little difficulty in con- tinuing their good work. The three young ladies, Miss Isabelle Buttery, Miss Martha Warner, and Miss Margaret Slothower, picked out rough specimens who look hard from the outside, but really haye sterling qualities hidden beneath the cloak of hardness. The conversions have progressed so far that the young ladies go to church Sundays accompanied by the converts. Isabella's magnetic personality has overcome the lost attitude of Tobie and he is now on the road to a speedy conversion. Martha's talented speaking won a victory over the dark and ferocious Kike and little Margaret took the prize when she again prevailed over a red- headed youth of a wayward disposition.

Just who it is or what it is or whether there is one the editor has been unable to decide. The possibility is that the editor himself is the jinx as he is the only one who has not succumbed to the childish ailments besetting the aforementioned people. According to Webster, to overcome a Jonah someone must be thrown overboard to furnish food for the fishes. just who will be sacrificed is as yet unsettled. Jonah has visited the people working in B4 with the following juvenile diseases: Isabelle Buttery gave way to an attack of appendicitis; Margaret Jones succumbed to mumps; Miss Durant spent ten days in the hospital breaking all her previous records; Marian Kopp hunted up scarlet fever; and Rex Mink contracted measles. Miss Durant says it's the annual, especially the humor section; but some folks have their doubts. Indigestion, mumps, scarlet fever, appendicitis, and measles do not just happen so. There is always a cause and when one considers the nature of the ailments tthey afflict the immaturel one can readily under- stand why some people are subject to them. LOVE DRAINS THE GAS TANK One of the promising Seniors discovered that you can't always rely upon past exper- ience. He spent a delightful evening in Dubuque and went to sleep peacefully, think- ing that it would take only forty-five minutes to get to Platteville the next morning. This he knew would give him ample time to have breakfast with her and get to Platteville for a date with Miss Durant at nine o'clock. When he departed from Dubuque he soon diseovered that he had not taken into account the fact that the gas tank must be filled after an evening of traveling in the city. He was only a few miles from Keeler; so he made his way on foot to the sleeping village. He got out from under this catastrophe to discover that it had rained more at Dickeyville than in Dubuque The new roadster groaned and sputtered as the hero kept his foot on low. It was no use. He finally had to climb out again and walk to the awakening village to buy a shovel. With the help of several of Dickeyville's early risers, the Ford and its driver were soon on their weary way again. About ten-thirty, two hours later than he had figured on the night before, he arrived at his rooming house on Pine Street. His land- lady met him at the door with the broom. She informed him that she would take his shoes to the kitchen. He then went to his room, dashed through a hurried toilet, and tried to think of some good alibis to tell Miss Durant. Of course he was justified in thinking love came before the Pioneer, but to put it across so that Miss Durant would think that also was no easy matter. After he had told his pitiful tale Miss Durants heart melted and he was re- ceived again into the fold. Yodeling Becomes Favorite Entertainment For Children Continued from page 1 18 Main Street have taken up the study of yodel- ing.
