Russell, master teachers, in ap- preciation of their twenty-five years offaith- ful service in the Platteville State Teachers College. The Old Bell Stilled are thy tones that wakened hope in the hearts of ten thousand; Yet they sing on in the souls that so long ago loved thee. Silent thou art unless stroked by the idle or curious, Then soundx a soft sweet sigh that clings like the kiss of a mother. P. M. W. III'I w .

V ,7 . x JIM THE archway 0f overhanging honeysuckle, the shade of the oaks and maples overshadowing the 01d Diagonal, the air fragrant with fiowers and musical with the songs of birds have lured many a college youth to the classroom and the duties of the school day. When all of this takes its place in the Land of Nevermore, then it is Alma Mater becomes a sweet Auburn in memory. THE brook at the School Farm, Boylehs pasture in days gone by, drowsily Whispers its way through the valley as in days of yore. Maybe it is dreaming about the picnics of long ago and talking in its dreams. As of old the stones, the trees, and the flowers are listening to this melancholy tune of times agone. . IN joyous May time this corner is a mass of beauty. Titania,s bower was neier lovelier. ,Tis the home of the bird and the haunt 0f the bee. Everywhere summer is redundant and color abundant. Honeysuckle, lilac, bridal wreath, and rosebushes, with their promise of J une roses, embowor gray walls. The cold and chill of winter seem forever banished. As the shadows begin to lengthen and the work of the day draws to a close, whistling, merry, jesting groups wend their way homeward by ones, by twos, by threes. Tomorrow is before them, today behind. The silent beauty of each bush and tree and flower bespeaks the joy of living. A feeling of eternal May time fills each heart. 851x93? ngZ My - 562G: Board of Regents of Normal Schools J OHN CALLAHAN, Superintendent Public I nstruction CEx 0mm . . . . . . . Madison EDWARD J .

You have been inoculated with many fine ideas and ideals. Soon you are going; to try these and your ability to put them into practice in different places in the world. We hope that you will not lose your perspective. We hope that you will keep in mind that you must work and everlastingly work at the job. The teaching of young people in the way which they should go is decidedly a well worthwhile undertaking. You can be proud of your task. It takes more than one swallow to make a summer. Your success or your failure does not come from any single small mistake or single small success. The days ahead of you will be mostly pleasant ones. Beware of allowing the one or two unpleasant ones to color your sky to the horizon. Behind the clouds the sun is always shining. KlGod,s in His heaven; allts right with the world." Do your work conscientiously, faithfully, earnestly day by day. The rest will take care of itself. ASA M. ROYCE PRESIDENT ASA M. ROYCE V. M.

BROWNELL F arm Manager :1 W971: .Lw' x J $7??ng 'f' Reorganization In the 1926 session, the State legislature passed a bill, which authorized the Board of Normal School Regents to grant the degree of Bachelor of Education in certain four year courses. Each normal has this privilege. Since June, 1927, the Platteville Normal has had the right to grant degrees to students finishing the four year courses in Industrial Arts and Agriculture, and since June, 1928, to those completing the four year course for high school teachers. The administration has also lengthened the courses for lower grade teachers and for upper grade teachers, offering three year courses in both departments in addition to the two year courses. The school is no longer called a State Normal School but a State Teachers College. In June this year twelve students receive degrees and six more do so at the end of summer school. Owing to these changes, a reorganization as to the classification of students was necessary. Previously, the students were classed as juniors and seniors regardless of the number of years spent in school. The new plan is to classify them into four groups: freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The student enters the class according to the number of years in his course. The new plan has proved very successful this year. In order to secure a definite rating among colleges and universities the school applied for a rating by the American Association of Teachers Colleges. This in- volved the sending of a person who inspected the school as to faculty qualifications, school equipment, library and laboratory facilities, and other similar factors. As a result of this inspection the school received a Class A rating, the highest given by the association. This means that this school, being put on the accredited list, conforms toevery high collegiate standards in all its work, both collegiate and pro- fessional. ' It is the intention of the school to make every effort toward continuing the high quality of work and qualifications of faculty in order that this high rating may be continued in future years.

The pledges were soon taken into the society with a well remembered initiation. Since the member- ship of the society is limited to sixty members, this made fifteen vacancies. After the mid-semester grades were in, the society elected and initiated fifteen girls. This completed the societyts quota of members. It is a very interesting fact that several of the active members of the society are Athenaeum alumnae and are again attending school. Once an Athenaeum girl always an Athenaeum girl. The Monday evening meetings were divided between study and play. During the study evenings books and short stories were read and discussed and an excellent debate was given. During the play hours, the girls observed Halloween, T hanks- giving, Christmas, and Saint Valentines Day, had their annual candy pull, and enjoyed fine programs of music, stunts, and jollity. The Athenaeum girls showed their good school spirit at Homecoming time by having an excellent float in the big parade. One of the crowning successes of the entire school year was the excellent Christmas program which the Athenaeum Society and the Philadelphian Forum produced on the evening of December 19. It was the Pageant 0f the Holy Grail. The entire production was beautifully staged and costumed. The Athenaeum reunion, which was held for the first time in 1923, is to take place this year on Monday, June 4. It Will be a fitting close to a happy, profitable year. prixnx wage fxi H6 Mil? -.'.V: g 68; T- xiii; 'HL 9 Raw 7L. 'gw First Row: Mingst, Glanville, Carl, Jewell, Simpson, Edge, Saxe, Stuart, Block.

ROBERT DULL In the school year of 1902-1903 Industrial Arts was introduced in the Platteville Teachers College. At that time the work consisted chiefly of the Swedish Sloyd type of handwork. In the year 1903-1904 the work was changed to What corre- sponds more nearly to that given at the present time. However, the shop room was then only about twenty feet square and was equipped for woodwork alone. At the beginning of the next year the course was made elective for Normal School students and consisted of work in wood, mechanical drawing for men, and hand- work for the women who were planning to teach in the lower grades. With the removal of the school to the present building the enlargement in space provided for an increased number in the types of work. In 1908 the right was given to the school to train Industrial Arts teachers. Since that time the department has grown until it includes shops for blacksmithing and bench metal work, cement construction, general woodwork, mechanical drawing, carpentry, and printing. It is on the four year basis and grants a degree of BE. in Industrial Arts. In connection with this department the Industrial Arts Club was organized several years ago. The purpose of the club is inspirational and educational. Thus it created a student loan fund which is in a healthy condition at present and, if the plan of the club to increase the fund from year to year works out as it is hoped, it will be a valuable asset to the school. ...W M 1661- F irsl Row: Blum, Hugill, Schuster, Harper, Jewell, Edge, Davis.

The few remaining old members interested some of the new men in their society until the list of pledges had grown to nearly twenty who were eager to join the group. These men have been benefited by the activities of their society which allow them opportunities of personal expression and give them social times together. The programs which the boys have carried out have been centered about forensic and dramatic work, with the inclusion of parliamentary practice as an important feature of each meeting. The Forum joined the Athenaeum Society in presenting at Christmas time ttThe Christmas Pageant of the Holy Grailtt. Members of each society were chosen to portray the characters in this most excellent production. i Mr. Wilkerson and his boys have spent much time in the reorganization of the constitution, purposes, and by-laws of the society this year. They are to be complimented on this splendid achievement which has led to their rapid progress in reviving this important society of the schooI. First Row: Joyce, Zirkelbach, Rice, Blum, B.

The members of the club have co-operated with the county supervisor and the rural teachers of the surrounding district by having joint meetings. The general purpose of these meetings is the establishment of a better relationship among the teachers, the pupils, and the people of the rural communities. The regular meetings are held on the first and third Monday evenings of each month from seven until nine oiclock. The purposes of the 3C'Club number three: hrst, to be a social influence in the school; second, to develop a knowledge of the machinery of organization; and third, to give experience in parliamentary practice. The Ruralites presented a very striking appearance With their banner parade on Homecoming day. They gave a beautiful Christmas pageant itThe Nativity" for the school Christmas program on December fifteenth. The close of a happy, successful school year finds the 3C Club again enjoying; another annual picnic. f "Q U" Q . ' 'WV r1. . -4' .k C: .Q fo;X. .Tth , $Efw Q. XXV U 3K? :1. 1g: .

A. is to promote a spirit of good fellowship among the girls of the school as well as to give them a better knowledge of the fundamental problems in the lives of all women-the mental, the moral, and the physical prob- lems. These studies have furnished topics for discussion at the regular meetings which have been held once a week every Thursday afternoon. At times members of the faculty and other friends of the society have taken part in these weekly discussions. The girls have also had many good times. At the beginning of the year all the girls of the school were invited to a mixer. They have since had an excellent Halloween party, a Christmas party, and some very fine picnics. The girls have raised a considerable fund of money by making and selling arm-bands, candy, and popcorn balls, by sponsoring dances, and by their large carnival dance which was one of the highlights of the year. This fund provides the money for many useful projects undertaken by the Y. W. C. A. during the year. Commencement will mark the close of a most successful year for the Y. W. C. A. The membership during this year has been seventy, Which is an increase of nearly thirty persons above the membership of the preceding year. There has also been an advancement in the regularity of attendance on the part of the members which is an evidence of an unusually high amount of interest in the work of the organization.

The first big event of the year for the club was a banquet given at Homecoming time. On March 13, the day when the basketball championship was celebrated, sweaters and letters were given to those men who earned them for the first time. The following received them for their work in football: Morrison, Fiedler, F reeman, Baden, Millman, Grindell, Smith, McKelvey, and Sands, the manager. The cross country men receiving sweaters and letters were: Vesperman, Blum, and Fry. Hillstrom, Kitelinger, and Robinson are to receive letters for basketball. These men and Brewer who had previously received sweaters but had never become members are the new members of the club. They were initiated this spring. The old members who had received letters and sweaters before were given letters at the same time, this awarding providing an interesting part of the afternoons program. T72! . J Jyxfxx! Win, . I t '.

GUERDON MUELLER The Department of Agriculture was established in the Platteville Teachers College by the Board of Regents in the year 1914. Since its establishment the department has performed a great service in southwestern Wisconsin by teaching those who care to learn how to work by the best methods of farming. Last fall the students of this department completed a task which required much labor, that of gathering by hand one hundred twenty bushels of seed corn. Those who helped were paid for their time. Such a task and other similar ones have given these boys more opportunity than ever before to earn money while attending school. A most interesting experiment is being carried on in one of the pastures. It is a nine year demonstration to show the effects of various fertilizers and their com- binations on blue grass. 1 The farm plant is to be extended. A new dairy barn large enough to accommo- date thirty-six milk cows, with pens for other stock, is to be erected next year. The college farm has heretofore kept only Guernsey cows. It has been decided to add a few Holsteins. The pure-bred live stock produced on the farm has created a good market for itself. .; . . 2719M. KiBi g , - 1 53:29 g? V ia,ta,Vt-S.f-1 ah v .3 l!

Marion Johnson, chairman of the Department of Journalism of the University of Minnesota, is editor and publisher. This is the highest rating that the Associa- tion gives.

It was then published under the management of the Philadelphian Society With a member of the faculty as the editor-in-chief. Professor George Beck was the first to fill this position. It continued in this fashion for a length of three years after which time for some unknown condition the Exponent did not appear in print for eight years. The Exponent was then revived through the suggestion and initiative of Mr. J. A. Wilgus, with W. B. Kempthorne as editor-in-chief. Since this time the school paper has never ceased to appear. During the papers long; and flourishing life it has always been a very infiuential factor in school life. It has been the policy of the staff to give an interesting and true record of events of the school and also a little humor. It has also been an active factor in school activities. - i761 J Jo, ,N First Row: M. Nelson, Gabel, Bartels, Horn, Peterson, Simpson. Second Row: C. Nelson.

The Ments Chorus has come to the close of a third successful year as one of the leading organizations of the school. When the chorus was organized last fall, several of the experienced members were not to be found in the ranks. New members were admitted and in a remarkably short length of time were worked very successfully into the places of the old members. The chorus practiced faith- fully with Mr. Carlson on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from eight until nine otcloek. During the year several concerts were given in nearby towns and one at home. The home concert was given on the evening of March ninth as the entertainment provided for the last evening of the Short Course. The programs given through- out the year consisted of groups of songs by the chorus, several numbers by the quartette, vocal solos by Orin Swingle, and a number of instrumental solos and duets. Those who gave special solos were Mr. J ames Parnell, Mr. George Grindell, and Mr. Carlson. I 8;. 143"? 5. . K . h YRW t :31! Nwrfff +5:th + t M F ... ti? A e W m' w y. ', ' f?

The boys sang for the Platteville Get-Together in Milwaukee during the State Teachers Association, at the Southern Wisconsin Teachers Association, at the afternoon program of the State Oratorical Contest at Oshkosh, and at Lancaster, Highland, Livingston, Cuba City, Bagley, Mineral Point, and Patch Grove. Two of the old members were replaced this year by Orin Swingle and Frederick Stephens. These boys have all worked together in such a way as to give to the school a musical organization of which to be proud. 1 ?:t Qxi -. 2 :TKVC', 1, $3th REE. ngi N3 K; va t '11, ;: Wf'xf T; - tkkmiykh :xrn Fz'risow: Dall, Stockel, Pink, Thomas Woolcock, Stephenson, Shuckhart.

The Ladies, Chorus has just successfully finished its first year of existence. A similar organization existed for a number of years, but the interest in it grew less and less until the chorus ceased to exist. Last fall when the call was sent out for girls who were interested in organizing a chorus, a large number of girls answered. When try-outs were over twenty-four girls had been selected for the chorus. Practices were held every Monday and Friday noons in the music room from twelve forty-five to one fifteen under the direction of Mr. Carlson. The purpose of the organization is to give the members training in four part singing and in organizing and directing choruses in the schools in which they will go to teach. The chorus has done exceptionally fine work although it has had few oppor- tunities to exhibit its accomplishments. The girls sang at the Christmas party and at several other school functions. 1791 Firs! Row: Mrs. Churchill, Mr. Carlson, Penberthy. Second Row.- Parnell, Grange, M. Walter, E.

In 1903, Mr. Churchill, who was instructor of music in the school for twenty-five years, organized the first orchestra. There were four members in this orchestra, three of whom were members of the directorts family. Since that time twenty-six orchestras have been organized and each has taken a very prominent part in school activities and also in the social activities of the community. Through the unceasing efforts of Mr. Carlson the work of the year has been very successful. The orchestra appeared on assembly programs several times throughout the year.

WILKERSON This year has seen the continuation of another branch of student activity carried on in a most excellent manner. From the very beginning of the year the students showed great interest in debating. At an early date Miss Irma Borchers, the coach, divided the students into seven groups according to the location of the students homes. Two teams composed of boys and girls were organized from each group. After receiving instructions in regard to debating, the groups challenged each other to debate on local questions of interest. Members of the faculty were asked to judge at the various debates which were held in different rooms during an assembly period. After several weeks another assembly period was devoted to the same work at which time four of the winning teams met to debate two different questions. One was of local interest; the other was the question used for inter- normal debating this year. The winners were declared the champions. These iinals did not end the season. Members of the preliminary teams and boys who had become interested by hearing the debates formed two teams which began to work on the subject assigned for the inter-normal debate. This question was: Resolved, that the United States should cease to protect by force of arms American capital in foreign countries except after formal declaration of war. Several preliminary debates took place. Those which were outstanding are: Platteville versus Dubuque University, Platteville versus Beloit College, a clash with the local Kiwanis Club, and one with a team from the Billings Polytechnic institute. These preliminary debates led up to those which were to determine the cham- pionship of the southern debate league. On Thursday afternoon, March 1, the first inter-normal debates were held. The Platteville negative traveled to Whitewater to meet the affirmative team of the college there and the Whitewater negative came to Platteville to meet the affirmative team here. As Whitewater did not enter the inter-normal debates this year the decisions had no effect on the championship. J udges here declared Whitewater victorious. No decision was made at Whitewater. On March 2 the Milwaukee negative team debated with the Platteville affirma- tive here and the Platteville negative went on from Whitewater to meet the Mil- waukee affirmative in Milwaukee to determine the southern championship. The Platteville afhrmatives lost here by six points and the negatives there by three points. With these two inter-normal debates the season closed. Miss Borchers is to be complimented on her splendid work with these young people and they on their commendable showing. Roddick Grindell Longhorn The Teams The affirmative debate team was composed of Byron Smith, Milton Longhorng and Chester Green. Not one of these young men had had any previous debatins, experience. Byron Smith upheld the place of first speaker. In this capacity he was responsible for the gathering of the facts and the organization of the material. A the leader in carrying on this phase of the work he was an effective member of the team. Milton Longhorn was given the place of second speaker on the aHLirmative. He was loyal to his team and played an important part throughout the whole debate season. Chester Green had the difficult position of third speaker. He was clever in retort and had the ability in a marked degree to minimize the argu- ments of his opponents. The negative team was composed of John Grindell, Harrison Roddick, and Guerdon Baker. J ohn Grindell supported his positon as first speaker for the nega- tive team in a convincing and effective manner. He studied the question until he had a thorough understanding of it. This, added to his natural far-sightedness, made it possible for him to anticipate difficulties. The interest which he displayed in the beginning never lagged. Harrison Roddick, a speaker of considerable experi- ence, upheld his position as second speaker most efiiciently. He was a winner in several of the preliminary contests and continued in the work throughout the inter-normal debates. Guerdon Baker, the closer for the negative, was the only member of either team who took part in last years work. He had mastered the technique of debating and in consequence was invaluable to his team. 7- ' w" - -s---e--fe-'-nm-D , MEET" "www-tre-"f-uw v?1w:: . 7 , , - 7 7-,; Irma Borchers, Coach Martin Bartels F oremz'c Miss Irma Borchers, coach of forensic activities, is proving herself a master in her field. Interest in forensics under her supervision is increasingly great. The plan of giving the debaters many opportunities of clashing with groups having varied points of view is being splendidly worked out byMiss Borchers, and was doubtless a big factor in developing the keenness and versatility which was evidenced by the Platteville debaters this year. Extemporaneous speaking, too, was much more popular this year than last. An unusually large number of students worked on orations, and Plattevilleis representative at the state contest, although not receiving one of the first places, was accorded much praise by those who heard her. Martin Bartels served as president of the State F orensic League during the cur- rent year. Mr. Bartels, prominence in forensics last year and this made this choice of presiding officer an unusually fortunate one. Mr. Bartels is a member of the class of i29. As captain of the aflirmative team of last year, he brought honor to the school through leading his team to a Victory which gave the championship of the southern triangle to Platteville. This year he competed in the extemporaneous and oratorical try-outs here, winning second place in oratory. This gave him the position of alternate at the state meeting. In addition he was the presiding oHicer at the meetings of the league. Margaret Connor. 010107 John Grindell, Exlempomneous Speaker Extempomneom Speaking The general subject for the extempore event was "The foreign policy of the United States since the World War, with especial reference to Latin America". Two pre-contests were held, the first on February 23 and the second on March 8. The first contest, which seven students entered, resulted in a tie; Harrison Roddick, Jack Grindell, and Ben Davis being ranked the same. J ack Grindell was awarded first place in the second contest, and Harrison was selected as his alternate. The state contest was held Friday, March 16, at Oshkosh. The topic on which Jaok Grindell spoke in the extempore event was "The Policy of Intervention in Nicaragua". Oratory The preliminary oratorical contest was held in the college auditorium on Mon- day evening, February 6. Seven contestants entered this contest, three of whom were awarded places. First place was awarded to Margaret W. Connor, whose oration was entitled "A Spirit of Fellowship"; Martin Bartels, who gave "To Peasantry or Power", received second place; and Leon Schuster, who spoke on "The Dawn of a New Day", was given third place. The state contest in oratory took place on Friday evening, March 16, in Oshkosh, the evening of the day upon which the other forensic events occurred. Mrs. Connor by virtue of winning first place in the preliminary contest was Plattevilleis representative in this contest. Although Mrs. Connor was not awarded a place among the first three, she ably represented the school. szf 1 4 , SHKTJ - . , x r rm' 5;. "1.x: - 2N . V '1'- iwmgb 5W 4 .

Our Cap Min In Tony, the college had a man who possessed all the qualities needed by the leader of a football team. He was a veteran of the two preceding years who had performed very creditably and who was well versed in the technicalities 0f the game. Though not a large man, Ellis was speedy and gained the respect of all of Plattevilleis opponents. Even in the face of inevitable defeat Tony never quit fighting but instead tried to inspire his men to greater efforts. Every man on the team was a loyal backer of the captain, and supported him to the last ounce of his ability. Tony,s heart was always for football, and he played the game for the love of the sport. Ellis was a neat offensive fullback. He hit the line hard, low, and fast, and ran interference with unerring accuracy. But it was on defense that Tony excelled. His ability to analyze the plays of his opponents and to stop them with Vicious tackling before they had fairly started, won for him the praise from his schoolmates and the admiration of his opponents. He played the game hard and in a sportsmanlike manner, accepting without question the referees decision whether favorable or otherwise. Captain Ellis is the type of athlete and leader the college is proud to classify as typical of the school. Though the team he captained was not success- 1 ful in winning games, the losses were not due to inefficient and .v . VJ- disinterested leadership. Captain Tony E1115 W-I-T Coach Lei t1 Coach Later J. Let?! The fall of 1927 brought to Platteville Teachers College Coach L. J . Leitl, to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Coach Keyes. Mr. Leitl is a product of Sturgeon Bay. During his four years in high school, he took an active part in the three major sports. The outbreak of the war interrupted his educational career, and he joined the army. Fourteen months of his two years of service were spent overseas, where he was wounded at Soissons on J uly 18, 1918, and previously, May 18, 1918, in the Battle of Cantigny, Mr. Leitl received Citation General Orders. In 1919 he resumed his schooling and entered Oshkosh Normal School where, for two years, he won letters in football and basketball. In 1921 he took charge of athletics in the Kewaunee High School, and after a successful career as high school mentor, he entered the University of Wisconsin in 1924. During his three years at Wisconsin, Leitl was one of the mainstays of the Badger grid teams, and played regular tackle, winning his iiW" each year. In the spring of 1927, Mr. Leitl was assistant line coach in spring football and did much to develop Wisconsin,s stellar tackkm,13hnnsh and VVagner. In the sunnners of 1926 and 1927, he coached at the Trout Lake Summer Camp, Trout Lake, Wisconsin. In his new position at Platteville, Coach Leitl was faced with big problems. F ootball material was light and green, and he had strange men with whom to work. With eight lettermen as a nucleus, Coach developed, not a winning, but a fighting aggregation which won for him the confidence of all the students as well as that ofinssquad. i881- Captain-Elect John Harper Cap taz'n-elect H arp er Next yearis captain will be the first Platteville boy to hold that much coveted position for many years, much of his football muscle having been developed while following agricultural pursuits on a farm near Platteville. J ohn, like Tony, is an ideal leader. 'He is what is known as a natural born football player, possessing the much needed qualities of agility, strength, intelligence, and an indomitable fighting spirit. He has that "do or die" spirit, and usually does what he sets out to do. He was a regular on last yearis fighting eleven. He returned this fall and again won his position at tackle as a regular. He played the entire conference schedule without having a substitute take his place. In every game his opponents found him a veritable "Rock of Gibralter". His knack for opening holes in the opponents line, his hard and sure tackles, his ability to block out his men in the open field, earned for him the unanimous support of the NPii men when the election of football captain took place. The Senior Class wishes you success next year, Captain Harper!

'31? $5?wa I???a Q3? 1 N . ?LV 7726 Season From green material of a very light sort, Coach Leitl developed a lighting aggre- gation which won the respect of opposing teams and coaches. In a new environ- ment, among strange men and mediocre material, the task was a huge one for any coach to undertake. To make things the more trying, only about forty men responded to the first call for candidates. Among these were eight lettermen: Captain Ellis, fullback; Schulz and Horn, ends; Harper, tackle; Elmer, guard; and Saxe, Piquette, and Walter, halfbacks. Five other men who had seen action in games during the previous season also reported. Things began to take on a more promising outlook when it was found that Coach Leitl would have a nearly 'Veteran backfield in Walter, Piquette, Saxe, and Ellis, with plenty of reserve strength 1n Baden, Millman, and Brewer. The greatest difficulty seemed to be 1n the development of a line With an insufiicient number of light weight men to mould into linemen, the task seemed a hopeless one to all except Mr. Leitl, who had been a mainstay in the U.W. line for the past three years, and knew how to make linemen out of raw material. This statement may easily be proved by the fact that only one touchdown was made through the Blue and White line during the season, and opponents were held to a scanty six first downs by way of line bucks during the entire schedule. Another factor in Mr. Leitlls favor is the fact that never has a team possessed more stamina and endurance in the past at Platteville, than did the squad of 1927. Calisthenics of all sorts, plenty of running, and duck-Waddling featured the early season preparations. Much credit is due the boys Who trudged off the field each evening, after having indulged in Mr. Leitlls strenuous exercises under extremely warm weather conditions. Many dropped from the squad, and before the season was more than half over, it was difficult to muster a sufficient number of players for two teams. The "games won" column shows that from the standpoint of games won the season was a disastrous one, but from the standpoint of courage, stamina, morale, and sportsmanship the season is a bright spot in the history of football at Platte- ville. The line spirit the boys showed in upholding the coach, even under trying; circumstances cannot be commended too much. The pluckiness of that one hun- dred and fifty pound average in the line against lines which always outweighed the Blue and White line twenty pounds to the man is indicative of the fight which the new coach instilled into the hearts of the men. Had the offense lived up to expecta- tions, which it did not, the story of the season might have been written in a far different way. At times the backs fairly tore through their opponents, and then they became uncertain and erratic. Likewise on defense, the backs were too often unable to analyze the other teams plays, and passes were completed for touch- downs, when touchdowns meant defeat. In spite of this, the boys should be proud of the record they established in finishing the season with only seventeen men to bear the brunt of battle. They gave their all in every game, and those who have turned in their suits for the last time will be missed next fall. M l91l LACROSSE IQePLATTEVILLE 0 LaCrosse opened Plattevilleis home season on October 8, 1927. Platteville went into the game to Win and Virtually played the up-staters off their feet during the first few minutes of the game. The first break occurred when LaCrosse scooped up a Platteville fumble and turned it into a touchdown. Platteville kicked off and recovered the ball almost . . L v . immediately when LaCrosse fumbled. A John Grindell, Tackle completed pass made things look favor- able, but LaCrosse held and took the ball on downs. LaCrosse immediately resorted to an aerial game and converted a long forward pass into a second touchdown, also adding the extra point. The Blue and White received and worked the ball to the LaCrosse 17 yard line at the end of the first quarter. Here another costly fumble gave LaCrosse the ball, and after a series of passes and line plunges, a LaCrosse man went around end for the third and final touchdown of the game. The half ended soon after with the score 19-0 against Platteville. In the second half Platteville came on the field determined to hold LaCrosse. Platteville was entirely successful and not until near the end did LaCrosse threaten to score. The gun ended the game with LaCrosse trying hard to score by long passes. GRINDELL is a smashing tackle who plays stellar football. Jack was a fiy in the ointment whenever opposition tried to gain through right tackle. A bad wrist handicapped him the most of the season. SARBACHER. It was thought the loss of last years pivot man would leave a vulnerable spot in the line. This was disproved with the appear- ance of Harry Sarbacher. Though he played his first football, Sarbacher lost out as all-conferenee center by the toss of a coin after a tie vote. SCHULZ. ttThe best end in the con- ference" was what the coaches pro- claimed ttLouie" and he is deserving of this tribute.

WW MILWAUKEE IZePLATTEVILLE 0 A large Homecoming crowd witnessed the second conference defeat of Platteville on October 15. Milwaukee entered the game with a great weight advantage over the Blue and White, and the Platteville boys were unable to halt the march of their opponents in the first quarter. An exchange of punts gave Milwaukee the ball on Plattevillets 45 yard line. The Green and White plunged time and again for gains, and succeeded in putting the ball over for a touchdown. At the half the score still remained 6-0 with little action on part of either team. Both teams played cautiously during the last half. Howard Baden. Guard Piatteville attempted a number of forward passes, but few were completed for long gains. The third quar- ter ended with the score still 6-0 against Platteville. During the last quarter things opened up and both teams took chances, Platteville trying; to even the count, and Milwaukee attempting to increase her lead. An intercepted pass gave Milwaukee the ball on Platteville,s 30 yard line. A fumble was recovered by at Milwaukee man which put the ball in a scoring position. On an end run Milwaukee scored a touch- down making the score 12-0. Platteville tried desperately to connect by air, but Milwaukee held and the game ended 12-0. asset to the team. SAXE. Saxe is a Lake Geneva product who has starred for three seasons on conference gridirons. He was a good field general, and his running and passing were always features of the games. JOHNSON. A good offensive end and clever defensive back. Swede played both positions as only a tried player can. excelled as a pass receiver, and next year he should be a great BADEN.

Platteville chose to kick off and Sarbacher got off a nice kick. Platteville held and forced Oshkosh to punt. A march deep into Oshkosh territory culminated when Oshkosh recovered a Platteville fumble. Despite this bad break the Blue and White fought Oshkosh to a standstill and the half ended with the score 0-0. At the beginning of the third quarter Oshkosh got under way, and after a series of successful plays pulled a surprise pass for a touchdown. The kick from placement was blocked. Platteville again kicked off and the ball seesawed up and down the field. Oshkosh gained on an exchange of punts, and the middle of the final quarter found the ball resting on the Platteville three yard line. Although outweighed twenty-five pounds to the man, Platteville held for downs to the amazement of those on the sidelines. A bad punt gave Oshkosh another chance to score, which they did. An end run and another pass, which was caught over the goal line, provided the means of scoring the final touch- down. The attempt for extra point was unsuccessful, and before the teams again got underway, the gun ended the game 12-0. Lawrence Fiedler, Center FIEDLER. Lindy,s weight is an asset. Competition fer the pivot posi- tion was keen, and Fiedleris ability must not be underestimated, since Sarbacher ranked second to none in the conference. GARNER SMITH, a freshman who should develop into a good wingman, possessed the necessary requirements of a good end. Garner is tall, rangy, aggressive, fast, and has the ability to analyze and break up plays. BREWER, a speedy quarterback who hit the line and ran interference well, excelled as an open field runner. An injury to his shoulder kept him ; Gamersmth, End from playing the most of the season. Guerdon Brewer, Halfback i94i $45 WHITEWATER 44-PLATTEVILLE 0 The Blue and White were swamped in the final conference game. Whitewater acquired a much desired Victory when it defeated the Platteville Teachers for its Homecoming feature at Whitewater on Saturday, October 29. Taking advant- age of the breaks and the weakness of Platteville, the Whitewater team started scoring early in the first quarter. The teams then battled in Platteville territory where a Whitewater man intercepted a Platteville pass and broke loose for a second touchdown. As the game pro- gressed, Whitewater again worked the ball into scoring territory, putting the ball across for a third touchdown shortly before the half ended. At the opening of the second half, Platteville decided to receive. The kick-off was run back to the thirty yard line. From this point, the boys, by consistent gains through passing and plunging, carried the ball to Whitewaterts one yard line. On fourth down a pass was grounded over the goal line, and a heart-breaking decision gave Whitewater the ball on Whitewateris twenty yard line. Platteville was no longer able to cope with the whirlwind attack of the Whitewater team, and a flurry Fred Morrison, Guard of passes netted Whitewater four more touchdowns. The final whistle heralded a 44-0 homecoming victory for Whitewatefs fast and shifty eleven, and closed Platteville,s unsuccessful conference schedule for 1927. MILLMAN. In Millman Coach had another short, light, and speedy back- field man. His fine punting and offen- sive work featured. Next season he should develop into a clever ball carrier. MORRISON. Fred is a dependable lineman. He played his position at guard without having a substitute dur- ing the entire season. He is only a freshman and much is expected of him in the future. MCKELVEY made up in speed and elusiveness what he lacked in height and weight. Mac was a hard man to - . tackle and keep down. He will not be Gordon Millman, Halfback back next year. MT. MORRIS 18 PLATTEVILLE 6 In the seasons opening game, October 1, 1927, Platteville met the veteran Mt. Morris team at Mt. Morris. Although greatly out- weighed, the Platteville boys gave a good account of themselves. Mt. Morris was forced to resort to the aerial game, three touchdowns re- sulting, two the first half, and an- other in the final period. Platteville scored when Schulz blocked a punt and Morrison scooped up the ball Job" Freemanv CW"! ' and ran for a touchdown. The field was heavy, and the last half of the game was played in a downpour of rain. MILTON COLLEGE 6ePLATTEVILLE 6 Milton College and Platteville celebrated Armistice day, November 11, by battling to a tie on the Platteville field. Milton threatened to score several times during the first period but failed. With the wind behind them in the second quarter, the boys fighting for the Blue and White punted across the Milton goal line. The Milton safety touched the ball, and Johnson fell on the oval for a touchdown. Platteville led at half-time 6-0. An intercepted pass tied the score 6-6 in the ' ,. final period. FREEMAN. J ohnny is a plucky little guard who always repelled the opposi- tion. His playing was hindered during the seasonby injuries. HORN. Graduation takes another stellar wingman in ttKenny". He was a clean, hard player, and worked con- sistently in every game. Horn, a substitute last year, won a position as regular this season, and deserved his ranking, WALTER.

Bayketball 5 Much of the credit for the successful season is due to Plattevillels popular basket- ball captain, Swede Johnson. Swede was a fighting captain, and a very excellent leader in all respects. His clean, sportsmanlike character has made him many lasting friends, both in school and among his opponents. His good humor was ever-present, in hard battles or in easy Vic- tories, and his team mates will always remember the big Swede from Beloit for his jocular disposition as well as his athletic ability. The team, as a whole, was one of Plattevillels best. Every man abided faithfully to all the training rules, and every man was a clean, hard playing basketball man. There was no strife or discord among the various men, and all went in to play the game fair, and played from beginning to end to win. The team was up against a tough schedule, and the men realized what that meant. The only chance to bring a second conference championship to Platteville was through hard work and hard playing. Platteville may well be proud of these sturdy, athletic fellows, for they have brought more honor to the school than to themselves. Many students fail to realize the team is fighting, not for its own glory, but for the glory of the school it is representing. F urthermore, the schools reputation is not measured by the Victories achieved, any more than it is measured by the manner and conduct of its athletes and students. Captain Arthur Johnson l97l Leitl and Johnson State Clz ampz'om A big, speedy fellow who knows his basketball is the reason why Swede is right up to the top of the scoring column again this year. Swede alternated at center and forward, working equally well in either position. Chub was a little late in getting started, but he demonstrated before the season closed that he still has that fine eye for baskets. As next yeafs captain, he is expected to be even more valuable to the team than he was this year. The sturdy, blonde youth who furnished plenty of thrills for the crowd is known to his schoolmates as Butch. Mingst has played his last for P. T. C. and his loss will be keenly felt. Sarbaeher alternated with Johnson at center and forward, and proved to be a fast, aggressive player. Harry has a year left in school, and with a good season behind him, heill bear watehihg next year. Walter, though this was his third year of basketball, never equalled the game he put up this year. Don made things miserable for the opponents both on offense and defense, and was a hard, steady player. Kite displayed the 01d fight and pep for which he was famed in high school. Kitelinger was a dependable substitute who collected his points when in the game. There will be more to tell about this lad next year.

The successful season of the previous year inspired this years quintette to greater effort for Which the boys were not unrewarded. A great deal of 'credit is due Coach Leitl for the almost ceaseless labor he expended in developing a winning combination. Faced with the task of replacing Tilley, all-eonference center of last years championship team, and Fallon, likewise an all-conference star, besides such dependables as Piquette and Cummings, Leitlis predicament was not one to be solicited by a new coach. However, a wealth of material reported at the first call for candidates. Sarbacher looked good from the start, and has justified the faith of his backers. tiButch" Mingst, though reporting late, proved that he was the "Mingst of old" and did much to'push the team toward the top of the list. Kitelinger, another late starter, came through and performed creditably in every game he entered. In addition to these men, Robinson, Baden, Holt, and Hillstrom proved themselves to be depend- able substitutes whenever the occasion arose. Captain Johnson, Hatch, and Walter, regulars from last season, displayed the same classy brand of basketball they exhibited last year and were main cogs in the machine developed by Coach Leitl this season. Coach set about his task of whipping the men into condition. The first few weeks were weeks of hard work for the squad. Besides the usual drills devoted to fundamentals, passing, pivoting, dribbling, and shooting, the boys were put through a series of muscle-developing calisthenics which stood them in good stead when they encountered the difficult schedule. The good spirit existing between the coach and the men was another factor which should not be overlooked, for, without the co-operation of all, Victories are not easily achieved. Captain J ohnson, sharing the honors with Coach Leitl, proved himself a capable and inspiring leader. His was the spirit that held the team together when things were breaking against the boys, and his easy going, clever, and deceptive tactics spelled defeat for a large number of Plattevilleis opponents. Walter, a letterInan of last years squad, played a far better game this year. His defensive work, as well as his ability to score, made him a valuable asset to the team. He found an able running mate in ttButch" Mingst whose ability on defense was remarkable. Mingst occasionally took it upon himself to dribble the length of the floor and send the ball through the hoop for points that were needed. iiChub" Hatch, though slow in getting started, found himself before the crucial part of the race was staged, and boosted Platteville,s score when conditions de- manded that scoring be done. Harry Sarbacher filled the other forward position, contributing his share of points and displaying a good floor game at all times. tiKite" Kitelinger, and tiRobby" Robinson comprised the remainder of the first string and both men showed fight and ability which will make them strong con- tenders for regular berths next year. aIIoIl- wt; ,vvevtL 4. -. TMa r, Viv 'wa a ; AL 7:3 wir1ynfii$22 THE SEASON OPENERS The basketball schedule was not begun until J anuary 6, 1928. Madison Business College was played on that date and, after an interesting battle, was defeated 32-20. The Capital City boys were fast and well coached. Johnson, Sarbacher, and Hatch collected plenty of points, and their consistent sharpshooting spelled defeat for the Business College team. Wartburg College played in the local gym the following week, January 14. The boys were no match for the fast Blue and White basketeers and were easily subdued 44 to 24. Everything was now in readiness for the opening of the con- ference season.

The game was close throughout until in the last five minutes the Platteville basketeers pulled up into what they believed to be a comfort- able lead. With the score 28-23 against them, LaCrosse staged a belated rally which brought them to within one point of their opponents. Platteville resorted to stalling tactics during the last minute and ten seconds of the game, and was able to keep the ball in its possession until the gun sounded the end of the game. PLATTEVILLE 28-WHITEWATER 21 The Platteville Teachers College cagers won their third conference game from Whitewater by a score of 28' to 21 on Friday evening, February 3, at Whitewater. Captain Johnson led his aces to Victory, scoring five field goals and Lloyd Mingst, Gumd one free throw. Hatch displayed his usual fiashy brand of ball and collected four field goals and two free throws. Excellent guarding and fast floor work by all of the members of the team kept Whitewater from seriously threatening the Blue and White at any stage of the game. PLATTEVILLE 24eMILWAUKEE 19 Platteville advanced another step to- ward her second conference championship by invading and defeating the Milwaukee Teachers Saturday evening, February 4. The Milwaukee crew trailed during most of the game, although it started the scoring in the first minute of play. The game was ' rough and somewhat slow, neither team having a decided advantage until the last five minutes of play. At this stage of the game Platteville was leading 23-15, and although Milwaukee scored twice from the field, the Platteville men had the game well in hand. Sarbacher was the individual scoring star of the game accounting for thirteen 0f PlattevilleTs twenty-four points. Kenneth Kitelinger Clarence Robinson Forward Gumd 11531" Kenneth H01 t, Center PLATTEVILLE 25eOSHKOSH 41 Monday, February 6, Plattevillels unbroken string of Victories was shattered by the speedy Oshkosh quintette. The victors displayed a fast offensive game during the first few minutes of play, piling up a commanding lead as the game progressed. Platteville was unable to get started, due to the fact that this was the third conference game within a period of four days, and that all of the games were played on strange floors. At the half Oshkosh was leading 21 t0 7, and Plattevillels chances for a victory were nearly gone. The Blue and White boys found themselves in the second half, and during the remainder of the game played the Oshkosh team on even terms. Bredendick, for Oshkosh, was the star of the game, collecting eight field goals and one free throw. PLATTEVILLE 28-MILTON 18 Following a brief rest from the strenuous week end, Platteville met and easily defeated the Milton College quintette, Thursday evening, February 9, in the Platteville gymnasium. Both teams played poor basketball during the first half, but they showed a consistent game during the last period, due to the delayed offense of Platteville. J ohnson and Hatch were the shining stars for P. T. 0., although they were in the game only a short time. I Herbert Bold t, Guard . they drew to within two points of the PLATTEVILLE 32 WHITEWATER 24 Whitewater conceded a second con- ference basketball game to Plattevil e, Thursday, February 16, in the local college gymnasium. Platteville dis- played a fine brand of basketball, using set plays during the entire game. The ability of Johnson to step in for short tries at the basket showed how decep- tive the plays were. Hatch was able to garner his usual number of points, slipping down the sidelines for short shots at the basket, and making good on most of his tries. The Whitewater basketeers showed lots of fight, espe- cially during the second half, when i Blue and Whlte. Edward Hillstrom. Forward 11041 PLATTEVILLE 43-MILWAUKEE 16 Platteville won a one-sided Victory from the Milwaukee Teachers at Platteville on Monday evening, February 20. Plattevilleis impenetrable defense held Milwau- kee to a single field goal during the first half, while brilliant team play enabled the locals to pile up seventeen points during that period. Coach Leitl suhstituted his second string men after the rest period, giving the Milwaukee eagers an oppor- tunity to boost their score. Although the Cream City lads were unable to threaten the lead of Platteville, they were successful in caging three more field goals and a number of free throws. Toward the end of the game the first string reentered the contest and worked in remarkable fashion. When the final whistle blew, Platteville Was on the long end of a 43 to 16 score, Johnson, Hatch, and Sarbacher together accounting for thirty-eight 0f the points. PLATTEVILLE 28-LACROSSE 16 A record crowd witnessed the Platteville Teachers fight for high conference honors when they triumphed over LaCrosse, Monday, February 27, by a score of 28-16. Opening at a fast clip, and with the realization that defeat meant the end of any title hopes, Platteville jumped into an early lead. Walter opened the scoring, registering from the field. With this as a start Hatch, clever midget for- ward, did some sensational tallying, scoring five field goals and five free throws during the game. The LaCrosse cagers made every effort to halt the superior offense of Platteville, but they were not equal to the task. On the other hand, Platteville found it easy to check the advance of LaCrosse, and held the Northerners to a single field goal and three free throws during the first half. The Platteville boys were leading 14-5 at the close of the half, and were confident of victory. When play was resumed after the rest period, neither team showed any signs of easing up. Platteville collected fourteen points during this half also,while LaCrosse scored eleven, making the final count 28-16, and assuring Platteville Teachers College of at least a tie for highest conference honors. PLATTEVILLE 33-LENNOX 24 PLATTEVILLE 35-MILTON 23 The Platteville quintette played Lennox College at Hopkington, Iowa, on March 1. The small gym accounted for the rough game that ended with Platteville leading 33 to 24. Saturday evening, March 3, Platteville played a return game at Milton. This was the last game of the season and every player was given a chance to play. The game was a nip and tuck affair until the last ten minutes of play, when Platteville rapidly piled up a commanding lead. When the final gun sounded Platteville was on the victoris end of a 35 to 23 count. 11051 $$:IJ 2 fiiijv IE :3an 55$!5 K 3'.

Prospects for a banner season looked bad. The poor schedule and the heavy spring rains were responsible for this discouraging response. The warm weather came on; however, and more men turned out. When the outdoor work began, the material took on a more promising shape and soon Coach Keyes had a fine looking outfit in action. The team was weak, however, in the pitching staff, not having enough veteran material back. The infield worked smoothly and the outfielders fielded like old timers. As the season progressed the continuous rains forced the team to miss the daily batting practice and outdoor work so that in the opening games of the season Platteville could not show its true power. Coach Keyes could always be depended upon to bring a strong hitting outfit into the game, and Platteville boasted of several strong stickmen. Fallon ranked first among the batting averages, followed closely by Bausman and Cummings. Taylor and J ohnson came next and were always dangerous men at bat. J ohnson especially delight- ing in pounding out two and three baggers. Walter Cummings, experienced outfielder, captained the team. Cummings played excellent ball the preceding year having a batting average of .610 while his fielding was perfect. Cummings was a real leader and showed the way by wielding his bat often and effectively. Captain Walter Cummings w u Baseball 1927 Qyzicers Coach . . . , . . . . . . .

Track 1927 The 1927 track season opened up late because of the bad spring weather. The men reported regularly however and things looked promising. The new material looked good from the beginning, but the team was handicapped by the almost complete absence of any veteran material. Only two men were back who had won letters in track previously. Sidney Tilley and Donald Walter were the two veterans who were back. Coach W. H. Borden worked hard with the new men and although he had no plans for winning meets at once, he looked to the future, and built a team Which would more than hold its own in competition during the 1928 season. Mr. Borden did remarkable things, however, with the mediocre material and the team made a good showing during the season in every meet. The team was captained by Sidney Tilley, well known man-about-school and athlete. Sid was an experienced and versatile track and field man having won honors through his season that he won individual honors in all the meets in which he entered. He also won the athletic award for 1927 and was the first to have his name engraved on the new placque in theitrophy case. Captain Sidney Tilley 411091 .u V b Xv :- b . J F 'x "I ENEufoNVHy J.

Borden and his track squad traveled to Iowa Saturday, April 30, and encountered the strong Luther College aggregation and met a defeat to the tune of 41-95. The Luther athletes were unbeatable in the distance runs, while Platteville was weak in these events. Platteville fared better in the dashes and field events. Dull, Plattevillets stellar dash man, ran a dead heat with a Luther man covering the 100 yards in ten seconds. Sidney Tilley, captain of the Platte- ville team, carried off high honors taking three firsts and two seconds accounting for twenty-one points for his team. He took firsts in the low hurdles, javelin, and discus and seconds in the shot put and high jump. The annual state track and field meet was held on Saturday, J une 4, at LaCrosse. Seven of the Normals entered. Platteville took fourth place in the meet being outpointed by LaCrosse, Milwaukee, and Oshkosh. The LaCrosse men took the lead soon after the opening races and although they were closely pushed by Mil- waukee and Oshkosh they managed to keep the lead to the last event. All the marks were unusually high. Many of them were better than the marks made in the Big Ten meet 0f the same date. Platteville lost some valuable points when Dull, Platteville,s fiash dash man, was ruled out of the 100 yard dash on a technicality after winning both of the heats. Don Walter took high point honors for Platteville tying for third in the high hurdles and taking second in the high jump. Sid Tilley made three points with a third in the low hurdles and a second in the javelin. Dull took second in the 220 yard dash. Boll took fourth in the two mile run, and Holt tied for fourth in the pole vault. Platteville was somewhat handicapped by the smallness of the squad. All the men excepting Tilley are back this year. 1112;- Top Raw: Heitz. Hill Coach Borden Williams. Longhorn Bottom Rau. Stuart, V. Vesperman M Vesperman, Fry, Boll Blum. Cray: Country 1928 With a squad of about a dozen men answering his call for cross country candi- dates, Coach Borden settled to the task of getting his men into shape for their first conference meet which was with Milwaukee here on Homecoming day. Although seriously handicapped by the loss of Captain Biederbeck through injuries sustained during vacation, Coach had four of last seasons squad back, Gussie B011, Bill Fry, Morris Vesperman, Vernon Vesperman, and Frederick Stuart of two years ago. These men comprised the list of veterans. Among the newcomers who made their initial bid for a berth 0n the team were Blum, Williams, Heitz, Longhorn, and Hill. The early training consisted chiefly of exercises and long runs to develop the lungs and muscles in order to insure endurance. Valuable tips on how to develop a good stride, how to carry the body in ascending and descending grades, when to begin to sprint, and various others of the finer points were stressed at this time. PLATTEVILLE 27eMILWAUKEE 28 The Platteville cross country team emerged Victorious in the first meet 0f the year defeating Milwaukee 27-28 on the Platteville hill and dale course. The day was a bit too warm to be an ideal running day and it made the going a little slow. The time for the run, a distance of three and one-half miles, was 19 42". A Milwaukee man led the field with a Platteville man a close second. The rest of the field was so strung out that Platteville received a second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and tenth, making a total of 27 points. The men in the order in which they finished were: Goehring, M; Stuart, P; Butts, M ; B011, P; V. Vesperman, P; Blum, P; Umos, M ; Conrad, M; Kummerlim, M; M. Vesperman, P; Voight, M; Fry, P. An exchange of position by either of the two teams would have reversed the results. PLATTEVILLE 13eOSHKOSH 23 The P. T. C. harriers annexed a second consecutive win by defeating the Oshkosh team 23-13, Saturday, October 22. The race was run over the Oshkosh three and one-half mile course. Captain Gus Boll, Platteville ace, succeeding Elden Biederbeck, captain of last years championship team, ran a steady, consistent race, leading Schraa of Oshkosh about 100 yards at the finish. B01115 time for the race was 18:36. Others finished in the following order: Vesperman, Platteville; Stuart, Platte- ville; Blum, Platteville; and the last three places were taken by Oshkosh men. STATE MEET The Milwaukee State Teachers College harriers won the state meet, which was held at Stevens Point, November 11. The Platteville team although entertain- ing championship aspirations before the race was defeated and was forced to be content with second place, while LaCrosse running a poor race took third place. The race was run over a hard, three and one-half mile course, and the weather for such competition was bad. A cold gale which blew directly into the faces of the runners during their final sprint slowed the men down and accounted for the slow time in which the race was run, that being 21 :53. Platteville had six men in the contest: Captain Gus Boll, Fred Stuart, Raymond Blum, Maurice Vesperman, Fry, and Longhorn. B011, Stuart, and Blum came in third, fourth, and fifth. Although the Platteville harriers did not win the coveted championship, they gave evidence of having received excellent training. Coach Borden knows the science of cross country running and this he taught his men. Many of this years squad will return for another year. A state championship is their aim.

As the season progressed, however, the numbers participating in the games increased. Three evenings at week were devoted to playing under the coaching of Miss Brigham. The only outside games played were with the strong Platteville high school girls team. All these games were lost due mostly to the lack of consistent practise by all the girls. The high school department and the rural school department were well repres- ented, but the lower grade and upper grade department fell below their quota.

At last he was aloneebut for how long? Hark! What was that noise in the distance? A low ominous roll broke upon his ears as if a thunder storm were coming. One glance showed him his mistakee it was the mob! He must flee! But where? Before him was a perilous descent of ice and steel. The path was one of many treacherous turns and twists. Above him rose a straight wall of gray stone, smooth and hard. He scanned it desperately enot a place for a foothold! Behind himkthat doorMand behind the door!the approaching mob! Nearer and nearer they came. They would soon be upon him! There was not a minute to loseehe must act quickly! The descent was the only means of escape. Would he have time? With his heart in his mouth, his toes in his shoes, and a prayer in his brain, he stepped down and down. He knew not how he gained the first turn in the path, but there he was. It had not been so bad, but he must hurryeHURRYeHURRY! The mob had reached the door. He could hear their screams behind him-they were hot on the trail! Down, down, down he went, slipping, sliding, and clutching! After endless years, so it seemed, he finally reached the bottom. But before him lay a sheet of ice, an expanse of snOWeand the windna cold wind, a cruel wind, a gray wind, a lashing wind. It out like a knife as it reached his thinly clad body. But the mob! He had forgotten them; they were close, close on his heels! Where were his rubbers? He could never cross that icy expanse without them. Ah, but he must! With a deep breath, he closed his eyes, bunched his muscles, and gave a mighty leap. He was out on the ice- sliding, swaying, running-the wind now before him, now behind him, and now all around him. Behind him he could hear the crowd. They must have sighted him, for he could hear a mighty roar. Merciful beestings! What was this looming up large and foreboding before him? Was it another enemy? Was it an iceberg? No, it was a shelter! It was a haven of rest! But ah! the ice, the cruel glaring ice, and the wind, the cutting, biting wind! He must keep to his feet and keep his eyes on the goal, but alas! He slippedehe was downebut only for a moment. Then he was up and at it again. His feet spurned the snow like those of a racing ostrich. His nostrils flared and he sped on. The mob was close upon him now, but he was within easy reach of the goal. He reached out his hand and grasped it. It was a door, it gave! He had won! He turned, leaped up the flight of stairs; leaped again and he was up another flight. Asharp turn and he was within the inner sanctuary! But, alas! even here the mob followed. Ha! Let them come now! He was prepared for them, even though the gong had sounded. He was Victor at last!

The Barrens Weekly Bill passed through the Congressional Library safely, but it was quickly vetoed when it was found that Harry Grange had used foul means to pass the bill. After a hot discussion in the Senate Chamber a compromise was finally agreed upon, whereby Barrows was returned to the library, Grange agreeing to desist from further usage. THE BATTLE OF BUNKER HILL A terrific battle took place on the morning; of December 21, 1927, at the domicile of Bunker Hill and Jack Bailey. A heavy force charged the fortress at sunrise. However, the dean was repulsed. The house mother then charged them with $7.50 for a new bed spread. So be it. THE GLADSOME PURCHASE '5 A famous purchase of history was transacted December 19, 1927. Negotiations began when Sir Benjamin Freeman of the Collegiate Inn Colony started to interview Sir P. Van Dyke concerning the article in question. The purchase was in the form of a small circlet to be worn around the wrist and was granted to a young lady of the Cuban Plantation. NEW RELIGIOUS BELIEFS Louis Schulz, a prominent member of the Meyer Lumber Company, became greatly interested in a new F aythe in the early part of 1928. The said Faythe originated in Cowden, Illinois. Contrary to other previous great religious founders, Louis does not encourage any followers. 1 THE WHIG PARTY During the Brewer Administration a new party, the Whigs, came into prom- inence. The Whig party was composed mostly of deserters from the ranks of the Bobbed Heads. They strongly favored long strands of hair bound together at one end, artfully coiled, and neatly deposited on the rear of the head. The noted mem- bers of this party were Elinore Loveland, J ane Hill, Catherine Hyatt, Helen Royce, Lois Huntington, Mike Trainor, Blanche Shuckhart, and Gertrude Graves. THE XYZ AFFAIR Three young men, who on a noteworthy occasion wished to keep their identities hidden for excellent reasons, styled themselves X, Y, and Z. The three visited the Meyer Lumber Company Dugout on a self- imposed inspection tour. Not finding conditions up to their expectations, they left a notice of a coming Visit and signed it X, Y and Z, the names of three worthy faculty members. The Jacks worked unceasingly for hours and 1n due time had the Dugout 1n apple pie order. Then with ruEled consciences and tired, aching muscles they awaited the arrival of the worthies X, Y, and Z. Great was their chagrin and anger when they learned that the inspectors were no others than the incomparable Swede and his aides, who had posed as X, Y, and Z. THE GLANVILLE ANNEXATION F rom the very beginning, it was the ease of a benevolent fortune with many good punches, surrounded by an infamous and dastardly plot which threw into turmoil diplomatic relations for the remainder of the term. On the morning of January 10, 1928, Sir Glanville, Patron of the Pasteboard and Knight of the Wire Key, stopped, as was his custom at the Tobaeeorium of ttDad" Dyer in quest of who knows what. Yes, we ask you, who does? So intangi- ble are the threads that make the historical fabric. Feeling flush, he spun the better part of a dollar across the polished surface of the counter, thereby starting events the noise of which was to reverberate through the halls of justice, upset the equilibrium of nations, and dissipate itself in the locker rooms of Platteville Teachers College. As we have said, feeling in need of divertisement and exercise, the care free Sir Glanville spun his coin and, in a voice filled with anticipation, called for the Punch Board. Punch, punch, punch. And the paper pellets left their honeycombethe num- bers inscribed thereon making our worthy Master of Chancery possessor of three boxes of candy. Thoroughly agog. with his good fortune, he departed, placed the boxes in his trusty locker, and related with considerable glee, his adventure of the morning to his Chapel friends, unaware that lurking in the background were the despoilers of civilization, the spies of the substratum called the underworld, the Cavaliers of the Chocolate Drop namely, ttSaceharine Tooth" Goodman, alias Mr. Badman, and Kandyface Knapp. Quickly the plot was formed. Its execution was a mere matter of moments. Professor Wilgus in his tiHistorieal Memoirs" says, ttThe Glanville Annexation is preceded by no known intrigue in the records of history. It debases by far the in- famy and aspirations of Brutus; it casts a shadow more impenetrable than the dark- ness of three planets over the countenance of Judas Iscariot; it dampens the Gunpowder Plot of Parliament; it removes the intrigues of the Borgias from the orchestra pit to nigger heaven; it makes Benedict Arnold a third-rater with the benefit of a rain-checkW Sir Glanville 0n the following day accosted the unscrupulous NSaccharine Toothii Goodman in the locker rooms and thrust his maledietions upon that unworthy. But the good Mr. Badman retained his poise unfiinchingly during the denunciation. For in those days there were no courts of redress for such criminal offense. Griev- ances were'settled in the gentlemanly fashion of backbiting, and the impervious- ness of the accused to the charges made the mystery more deep. Besides, ttSac- eharine Tooth" Goodman was also a big man, and Sir Glanville was small. As often is the case, it remained for the historians only to plumb the depths and ascer- tain the true facts of the conspiracy. In the annals of history the Glanville Annexation remains the outstanding instance to controvert the statement that history repeats itself. Doc Whitelr Final Examination in Chemz'ytry 1.

Thus starts my narra- tive-a yarn that will chill the blood in your aorta and give you cramps in your stomach. Tobias Zumpps, or as he was more familiarly known, ttTob- ias Zumpps", lived all alone in a three and half room house,eall alone except for his wife and eight children. In the winter of 1919 the wife got cholera from eating a bath sponge and died in the front hall. Toby J unior came home from school and found his mater with her head in the umbrella stand and one foot in a jardiniere. Junior diant think this strange as his mother was both epileptic and conniptive spasmod- ically. Mrs. Zumpps had, however, drunk a huge draft of water before she had passed to the great unknown; so the sponge inside her swelled con- siderably. This made her lopsided. Junior playfully prodded his mother. Just then the most surprising thing happened! tContmued in our August I ssuel WHOA Dear Infirm Moments: Welve been pondering; quite a bit this evening and flatter ourselves sufliciently to think that you would be delighted to get some of it.

Conduct Concerns City Council City Fathers Take Action Throw Light on Subjects Plutteville, Wiseln the most heated session since the city hall burned, the local council took drastic action to end the lingering fare- wells taking place each night in the darkness of the front porch of the Roberts domicile located just to the rear of Dad Dyer's Dime- porium. It was admitted that the eo-ecls 0f the house Observed the 10:30 rule. Although they are home at this time, they stay until midnight, 0r thereafter, saying good night to their respec- tive arabs. Several neighbors complained to the city council that they were unable to sleep because of queer oseulating noises arising; from the front of the Roberts house. When questioned, Mary Kolb, Everett Saxe, Hazel Eastman, and Murray Pinkerton all claimed to be absolutely innocent of such action. In a hearing before the council to- night, Mr. Pinkerton stated, HSuch accusations are a slanderous insult to my technique." Miss Eastman backed him up in this assertion. tConlinued on Page 3 Sarbaeher Makes Daring Escape With Fiancee Plattsburg 0n the Platte, April 2, 1928.e Harry Sarbaeher, well-known athlete and par- lor hound, saved the day for Sarbaeher when he cut classes to rush Ruth out of the building in order that she might not fall into the clutches of Paul Karrmann, a former rival.

M agnetzism Personal magnetism is somewhat like HIt": one hasnlt it unless one has it. Elinor Glynn and I have both. I believe that the foundation of my present success is due largely to personal magnetism, a force which everyone should cultivate. In the first place, you must slap yourself on your back, bulge out your chest, and treat everybody tough; the bigger he is the better he likes it. Secondly, part your hair in the middle to bring out your distinctive personal charm. Thirdly, hang upon your person all the trophies you have acquired in your various activities. This lends a regal splendor which amazes strangers and makes something out of nothing. Lastly, always vociferate loudly to draw the attention of those within hailing distance.

It has long been a baffling problem to the public as to how Mac Heimer can fold himself into the cheese-box Overland automobile that conveys the Potosi aggregation back and forth from the village of beer to Platteville. He was closely watched the other day, and it was discovered that a secret trap- door is lowered which allows his feet to drop through the floor and rest on the under running gear of the car. Another small hole has been cut in the roof for his hat; so if he is sitting in a somewhat hunched position he can actually ride sitting up. tContinued from Page onel Nevertheless, the local lawmakers, amid up- roarious hisses from Red Olson, Pinkerton, Saxe, Carr, and other habitues 0f the Roberts house, passed a decree which provides that a large street light should be placed directly before the front steps of this mansion. The consequences of this momentous step cannot even be hinted at. One authority is quoted as saying that the young people can overcome this discouraging move made by the city by saying good night to each other on the Roberts back porch. The main diflieulty to this plan is that the house has no back porch.

Mr. Davis, who manages the team under the name of the HHouse of Davis", contracted over the telephone for a game with the Poynetters. The team journeyed the forty miles beyond Madison and arrived to find a packed house. However, doubt arose in the minds of these honest folks about the House of Davis, when the team trotted on the floor arrayed in suits of as different color and Variety as the coat of Joseph of Biblical fame. These doubts became strengthened when it was discovered the team did not possess a basketball. The glib Mr. Davis explained the situation by saying that their paraphernalia was stolen enroute. But a deeper doubt still lingered as this lie was accep- ted. Sufh'ce it to say that the game was played and lost to the Poynettel's. There was irony in their attack. Then came the settlement and Mr. Davis looked to his 3540, the sum as per verbal agreement, but he received only 3525. When asked for the reason of the cut, Mr. Davis was told that a House of David team without House of David beards could not receive full value on account of flagrant misrepresentation. With scorn all around him, Mr. Davis accepted, being glad to escape with expense money. The only explanation the manager has to offer is that the Poynette contractor had water- melon for dinner and eouldnlt find a clean towel. As none of Mr. Davists lads is old enough to grow a beard, the team was forced to disband. New Star Breaks All Records In Mud and Water A Star sedan driven by Harrison Roddick and owned by Bill Roddick passed a wonderful endurance test this winter.

The re- sponse has transcended even the fondest hopes of those sponsoring the contest. The office of the literary editor has been deluged with manuscripts, and the editor has had a hard task in selecting the winners. In many cases the papers had to be read once before a unanimous decision could be reached.

JACOB SCHESSER Jacob Sehesser is the youngest of a large family of drug store cowboys. His old man runs a pawnshop and clothing emporium combined and so is a millionaire. All little J acob had to do in his childhood was to dance through the woods all day long and chase butterflies. The girls were all crazy about him. Anybody would be. Everything went along all right until one day J aeob was tripping through the woods and came to a spring of clear sparkling water in which he saw his image. He became so interested in watching himself in various poses that he forgot to go home. til never realized," he eooed, uwhat wonderful liquid brown eyes I have! And notice my fast receding brow!" Day after day passed and yet J acob did not leave the pool. He seemed hypnotized by his own beauty. Weeks, months, and years rolled on to wherever they roll and little Jacob was grown into a man. But such a man! So long had he lingered without food that he was dreadully thin and undernourished. And then one day the chief of the Platteville Police Department was out for a stroll in the woods to gather daisies and Violets so he might weave himself a crown and be queen of May, when all at once he spied the slender young man intent on observing himself in the limpid pool of spring water. He promptly arrested poor J acob for loafing and threw him into the Platteville cooler. J ake did not stay here long because he had an irritating habit of walking back and forth between the bars for exercise. So he was hired out to the town of Hazel Green to exterminate the rats and mice. He was a terror to these because he used to crawl down the holes after them and shoot them. One day the shooting caused a film of smoke to form though which Jake could not escape. He perished with the rodents. 2. ARTHUR SWEDE JOHNsON AND FORRESTER KILDow It is sufficient to say that Johnson was born. That, at least, no one can well dispute. Immediately after this important period in his life, he embarked upon a colorful stage career. Teaming up with Baby Peggy Kildow, the two rocked the thrones of hundreds of European republics. For this Swede was cast into a dark dungeon, but his partner escaped into the movies where he doubled for Lon Chaney. Spending his nights in confinement Arthur learned to curse humanity. Civiliza- tion had played him a cruel trick. He spent many long hours planning how he could wreak his revenge on the world. One day while listening to a scissors grinder at work he conceived an idea. Immediately he broke into song, and immediately he was thrown out of jail. Now he was free to work his cruel torture upon an un- suspecting world. And so he went from place to place singing mammy songs. In a short time 7,291,859 people died of fright, 5,934,567,239 committed suicide, and almost a billion went insane. Satisfied with his revenge, Swede entered the Platteville Teachers College where he was satisfied to torture the stu- dents at intervals only.

K Lvl-ng. .?:;W Y! t I e'Qx .17 t ,; But in the meantime Kildow had left Hollywood for Alaska, where he met a tragic end. It happened this way. One cold night Shorty stumbled into Dawson City. It had snowed all day and by this time the snow was quite deep. In fact, twenty horses broke their legs that evening by stepping into chimney holes. Kildow found his way down to the Hotter Nell Ice Cream Parlour where he got into a poker game. He lost all his money including his clothes and boots. But Shorty started out for Nome wearing only a grin and a muffler. On his way he saw a cave ; so he went in to get warm. Six hours later the natives of Nome were startled to see Kildow pushing through the snow carrying a live man-eating polar bear under each arm so that the fur would keep him warm. He always was a strong fellow. This would probably have made him famous, but his feet were frozen so badly that they had to shoot him. 3. PHILIP BREWER Philip Aloysious Brewer was born in the year 1905 of poor but sober parents. He was raised for the most part on milk from contented cans. Young Brewer startled the universe at the. tender age of three by inventing the boneless oyster. Soon after he went insane trying to design a new oil station. After a six-months, rest selling roulette wheels in Scotland, he was pronounced cured. Little is known of his life from then on until he entered the college at Platteville on the Platte. Here his education was such that it made him absolutely useless for the remainder of his life. He later toured the Rocky Mountains where he encountered a large mountain lion with nefarious intents. Brewer let out such a howl that it petrified the lion in its tracks. He later sold it to a town that put it in a park as a statue. There is some dispute as to the cause of Phills death. He died of blood poison- ing of the hand which some say he received when a cash register was slammed on his fingers, but I like to think that it was caused by his landlady when she chastised him across the knuckles with a carving knife while he was reaching for a third piece of meat. 4. HARRISON RODDICK Harrison Roddiek, though born but a few years ago, has lived a long and full life. Full, ah, yes, full of foolishness and wit of a terrible nature. While still a small boy Harrison showed his parents what a genius they didnit have in their son by attempting the George Washington and the cherry tree act on the parlor table with a new scroll saw. He would do that. But artists must be temperamental; s0 vases and floor lights were crashed ruthlessly by the young Edison in his struggle to determine how many tomatoes can be forced into a can. Yes, Harrison is still trying to crash his way into the headlines of scientific journals. Few people can appreciate his genius, but thatls the way with famous men-it must come centuries later. Uncle Harry sees his liabilities, however. He recently placed a new car in his hands to watch the inevitable chain of destructive experimentation add another link to one already miles in length. Let us leave him here. The rest of the story is too sad for such a journal. You might knOWea woman has entered his life.

This is the key idea back of Badger Yearbook Service. Close contacts and generous assistance offer stu- dents an insight into the fundamentals of school annual building. The work is accord- ingly given impetus through a better under- standing of the purpose and aim in every move. Thus, a staff knows at all times what it desires to accomplish. When this is achieved, the task becomes a pleasure. The success of the Badger plan is evi- denced each year in the high ratings re- ceived by an unusually large percentage of books produced by us.
