RIVER FALLS STATE NORMAL SCHOOLFOREWORD
The Meletean Staff presents this volume to the students, faculty, and friends of the River Falls State Normal School. We wish to thank all those who have so generously aided us in our endeavours.MELETEAN
To the Members of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty
It is with mingled feelings of satisfaction and regret that you see the day approach when, as a class, you will sever your connection with this school. You have planned and worked and played together, suffered some defeats and enjoyed many victories. These common experiences form tics not easily broken, and the friendships of your classmates will be enduring ones.
The period spent in this school, although brief, has been of paramount importance, for it has helped to crystallize your unformed thoughts and aims. It is to be hoped that you have chosen your work because of its real need to the world as well as its appeal to you as an individual. To enjoy doing, more than anything else, a work that is worth while, is proof positive that no mistake has been made in choosing one’s life work.
Changing conditions bring with them a new outlook, a new realization of duties and new opportunities for service. At no time has a class graduated from this school when there was greater need for earnest, honest, conscientious work than now. Your Alma Mater looks to you to do your part toward bringing in an era of a better Americanism, a more devoted patriotism.

A CAMPUS VIEW.Pate 9MELETEAN
Professor L. H. Clark
Mr. Clark's resignation from the faculty of the Normal School startled us with a feeling of almost elemental loss. For twenty-eight years he has labored in our midst, working whole-heartedly and ably for the institution and for the welfare of the boys and girls in Wisconsin and neighboring states. So sure and constant has been his service that we can hardly contemplate the school without his presence. As the end of his service approaches, we feel keenly our loss and offer to him our tribute. In doing so it is fitting that we inquire concerning that part of his life that preceded his service with us. That and the portion we know so well, will, when joined with a third, constitute a goodly period of usefulness.
Mr. Clark was bom February 26, 1852, in Clarendon, New York. He received his elementary training in his native state in the schools of Clarendon and Rochester. It was his lot to follow the migratory stream that has peopled the great Northwest, stopping now and then, as did many another, till the current swept him onward. He attended high school in Saginaw, Michigan, from 1865 to 1868. In the latter year he came to Wisconsin, and for four years lived on a farm in Green Countv.
— 1920 —
In 1872, Mr. Clark was a student in Northwestern University at Evanston, Illinois. He enrolled in 1875 as a student in the Whitewater Normal School, from which institution he was graduated in 1879.
Mr. Clark’s enviable record as a teacher began in the public schools at Horicon, Wisconsin, where he was principal from 1879 to 1883. He spent the next three years in Toniah public schools, and the years 1886 to 1889 in the public schools of Sparta. After this service, he spent two years at Baraboo, Wisconsin, as superintendent of the city schools and principal of the high school.
The opportunity to serve as High School Inspector came to Mr. Clark in 1891, and in this capacity he spent one year. The work of a high school inspector enables one to get a comprehensive view of the educational work in the state, to study its needs, to give inspiration to those in need of help, and to gain enthusiasm from others.
In 1892. Mr. Clark came to River Falls as a teacher of mathematics. He has remained as head of the department continually since that time, and in all the years has enjoyed but one brief leave of absence. He has served the institution under every president but one; he has observed almost every phase of its upbuilding and has had a large share in its development.
Mr. Clark’s life has stood for honest work. Nowhere can be found a more faithful and conscientious worker. No trouble has ever been too great for him to take in the interest of his classes. Every task and duty have always been promptly and efficiently executed. To this day no teacher in the school is quite so prompt and accurate in the performance of all duties and in the keeping of all engagements as is Mr. Clark. Mr. Clark has always placed his work, his duty, first. This ever present example of fidelity to duty through all of these years of service has had an influence in this institution greater than we can now calculate.
While Mr. Clark has not the college degrees that many men boast, yet he was one of the most scholarly men in the school. Few, indeed, have read as widely as he. Possessing the natural instinct of a scholar, his reading and study have extended over a vast range. His studies have carried him far into the field of history, literature, and science, until his scholarship in these fields fairly rivals that of many a specialist. Mr. Clark has always held high the ideals of sound scholarship in this school. There has never been concern felt for the reputation of the school when credits from the Department of Mathematics were up for consideration. So precise has been Mr. Clark’s knowledge of his subject, so conscientious has he been in his performance of his work as a teacher, so keen in the study of the art of teaching, that his department has stood out for its excellence.
Mr. Clark’s resignation is a loss to the school that cannot be repaired. His rich life has endowed him with a thousand interests that will keep him forever young, and in his new home on the great Columbia he may find equal delight in raising apples and pears of high quality as he has found pleasure in the training of teachers of superior quality.

To Our Alma Mater
Tunc: Thanksgiving Song.
Here is to our Normal, dear old River Falls,
Pleasures on your campus, gladly we recall;
You our Alma Mater evermore shall be;
May we always keep the visions given us by thee.
We, the Class of '20 are graduating here,
Some have worked together nearly five years;
Others of us joined them in the Junior Class And we hate to leave now, every lad and lass.
When at last we’ve conquered and our goals are gained,
We will then remember how they were attained:
Visions of our Normal kept us in the right.
We always shall remember the dear old Red and White.
Helen M. Lampson, ’20.

This year found the Junior Class one of the largest that ever entered this school. We have proved our greatness not only in quantity but also in quality.
Among our varied accomplishments of the members of our class, athletic ability seems most prominent. We took part in all the activities of the school and lent a hand whenever possible. Although we did not win the class rush we made a good showing.
Our class spirit, and co-operation between the officers and the members of the class has been remarkable, making this a very successful year.
We hope to resemble next year the Senior class that this institution has been so proud of.

The membership of our class, as Freshmen, was about forty, but it has increased considerably since then.
The first social affair that year was a wiener roast, which was held on the Mound. We gathered there in the latter part of the afternoon, and kept things stirring with games of various kinds until the eats part of the program arrived. We built camp-fires, and roasted wieners, and marshmallows in primitive style. Mr. Whitenack acted as chaperon, which helped to make the party a success.
Being a little green, as all Freshmen are, and it being our first year as students, we did not do much in the line of athletics, although both boys and girls were represented. .
When we became Sophomores, our first social function was a party, which was held in the Music Room of South Hall. The room was very tastefully decorated with our class colors of orange and black. A short program was given, and several games were played, after which refreshments were served.
In athletics our class won no championships, but made a creditable showing. The boys had a good basketball team and were victors in many games. The girls also had a basketball team. Wc played a tic game with the Freshmen, and were defeated by the Third Year class, but only by a few points.
On the base-ball field, the glory of our class was upheld by Victor Knerr, who played on the Normal first team.
As Sophomores, we had the honor of winning a silver cup for selling the most tickets for the Circus given that year.
When we became Third Years, we were one of the most active classes of the school. Our membership had increased considerably, and we took part in many of the school activities. Our first break into the social world was a party held in the Society Room of South Hall. Many games were played, and an hour of dancing was enjoyed by all.
This year, one of our members is engaged in debate work, and we think he will gain some honors for the class.

This year the Y. W. C. A. started off with a boom. The membership drive hi ought in ninety-six girls. With the three-fold purpose of mental, physical, and spiritual phases of life in mind, the Association was greatly helped.
The first big event of the year was the all-school Mixer, given by the three Christian organizations the first Friday evening. During the year, the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. have had several joint meetings and social hours beside the regular Thursday evening meetings. The two associations gave a Thanksgiving Vesper service in the auditorium. On Thursday before the holiday vacation, the Y. W. gave a Christmas program.
Miss Sanford, as chairman of the advisory committee, has been a faithful helper in every need.

G. O. P. stands for Girls On Promotion (also for Great on Pep). River Falls is noted for its school spirit and much of this spirit finds its source in the G. O. P. The purpose of the society is to “carry on” the spirit of the normal school.
This year, this spirit was in evidence from the beginning. The first week of school, some of the old members of the G. O. P. got together and supervised a girls’ mass meeting. This started the feeling of school patriotism among the new girls who soon felt that it was their duty to get out and root for the foot-ball team.
The G. O. P. meets in the society room every other Wednesday evening. The hour is devoted to entertainment and to the business of promoting school spirit.
At the basket ball games, the girls occupied the east end of the gym and displayed the spirit that all River Falls students feel. They usually joined with the Spirit Club in "putting on” a little “stunt" between halves of the game.
At the l au Claire Game, the Spirit Club and G. O. P. marched around the gym while the band played. They formed the letters R. F. N. and P. E. P. Then they formed a spiral and gave several good rousing cheers, making a pleasing picture with their red and white costumes.

THE NORMAL CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION
The N. C. A. is one of the most prominent organizations in the Normal. The meetings are held every Thursday evening. Our meetings are very successful due to the good co-operation of the students.
Our aim is to keep up the religious fervor, and to keep the students abreast of the world in religion as well as in the other lines of work. Our discussions are not limited to religion alone, but to the topics of the day as well.
Besides our regular programs, we have many social events. The first one was held on the mound which was a mixer for the Catholic students. We also had a special program and social gathering on Christmas.
Much of our success is due to the earnest efforts of our adviser Mr. E. J. Prucha. Mrs. Prucha has also appeared upon our program, and has awakened much of the interest in our organization.
Father Dukoff has co-operated with the organization and has shown a good interest in our work.
We will gladly welcome all future Catholic Students of the Normal.

The Winter Club was organized November ninctccn-ninctccn for the purpose of promoting skating, tobogganing, and other winter sports.
A good sized rink was cleared and in readiness for skating during the Xmas vacation. Shortly after the beginning of the new year Wayne Benedict, the first president, opened a toboggan slide in the park. This was well patronized.
The City Council, deeming it the duty of the City of River Falls to keep the ice cleared for skating, took this work and expense upon themselves. They have promised a finer rink than ever for the next winter.

This year has been a successful one for the Camera Club. The membership has reached the high mark of forty. At many of the meetings the laboratory has been crowded with students engaged in the final processes of picture making.
The purpose of the Club is to promote photography among amateurs and to help them in producing a high grade of work. Under our adviser, Mr. Jacobson, a study has been made of the camera and its parts, and the processes of developing and printing. Miss Pardee favored us with a lecture on what to put in a picture and suggestions on mounting.
Besides affording a convenient place for the members to work, there is the added advantage of being able to secure help and advice. As a result, each member has a collection of photographs which were made by his own hands at a small expense. The collections are increased by exchanging negatives at the meetings. Two hours’ credit are allowed for doing a specified amount of work.

ORATORY AND DEBATE
We have abundant reason to be proud of our orator, John Williams, for his creditable representation of River Falls Normal in the Inter-Normal Oratorical League Contest March 19, 1920, at LaCrosse, Wisconsin. John C. Reno as alternate and business representative, and Mr. V. W. Bruder, of the faculty, accompanied Mr. Williams to LaCrosse. Mr. Williams Oration was “A Plea for National Preparedness," and Mr. Reno's oration was entitled “The Eternal Question."
Thoughtful and loyal friends of our school appreciate and commend the work of our debaters in the Triangular League Debates held March 26. 1920. Our affirmative team, consisting of John Williams. Henry Otterson ami Ludvig Franzen, met Eau Claire’s trio at River Falls, and the negative team, consisting of Archie Anderson, Erwin Cudd, Landon Chapman and Clinton Skifstad, met Superior Normal’s team in Superior.
Although neither of our teams won the decision, intelligent and informed friends of River Falls realize that our debaters deserve unlimited praise for their patient, penetrating and diligent work. Informed friends will also realize that in the several weeks’ work with Mr. Bruder on the question at issue, our debaters acquired a comprehensive and penetrating knowledge of the whole subject seldom equalled by even the best college teams.
Thoughtful people recognize that honors in any school activity are scarcely possible without general preparedness of the whole school for that kind of activity. Our achievements in athletics, of which we are justly proud, are largely due to the fact that our whole school has become sufficiently athleticized to call from each student a hearty appreciation of our athletic teams. This general traditional spirit and enthusiastic appreciation have stimulated scores of men to try out for athletics and have called some of the best athletes in the state to our school.
In debating and oratory there has been a considerably different spirit. We have abundant material, but we have lacked all-round preparedness for intellectual activity and combat. We render too little appreciation and honor to those who have aspiration for debate and orator}'. And we forget that appreciation inspires aspiration. Our indifference to intellectual combat is in a large measure responsible for the struggle which our debating teams have to face. This year there were only seven applicants for places on the debating teams. The unceasing efforts of those seven men under these circumstances should arouse the whole school to a sense of keen obligation and stimulate every student to new activity and loyal support of debating and oratory. Loyal support and earnest endeavor will win debates. Half-hearted attitudes, criticism and cynicism will not win them. The arguments and abundant material which our coach, Mr. Bruder, put into the hands of our men this year were so exceptionally strong that they won the highest commendation from several university authorities. With loyal support such arguments as these will win. Through this Annual the Senior Class bespeaks that kind of loyal, earnest, intelligent support for debating and oratory which we all have gladly accorded to our worthy athletic teams. That kind of support and only that kind, will establish for River Falls a winning tradition which will know no defeat even in the face of such psychological misfortunes as contributed to our defeat this year.

The meetings that were held in the Primary Room of North I tail every Thursday evening were always well attended and enjoyed by everybody. The occasional joint meetings with the Y. W. C. A. were especially attractive and well attended.
Many interesting talks were given on different phases of “Y” work as carried on in different parts of the world. We were very fortunate in having Mr. Hunt with us to set us straight on the “Y” situation in France during the war.
A special feature of every program was the quartette composed of Irving Cour-tice, Willard Enge, Jos. Blonigrcn, and Swen Olson; which was directed by Professor Jacobson.
Next year we hope to get our athletics under way earlier in the year and follow a regular schedule.

Lincolnian re-organized last fall under the leadership of Mr. Erlandson. Only a few of the old members had returned, but the new men took an active interest immediately. The membership increased to twenty-five. Meetings were held each Wednesday evening. The programs consisted of debating, speaking, and music.
The departure of Mr. Erlandson removed a source of inspiration and his loss was sorely felt. After the holidays attention was turned to the preparation for the inter-normal debates with Superior and Eau Claire. The teams were mainly selected from the members of the society. The debates were held late in March after this volume had gone to press.
Our president, John Williams, represented the school at the inter-normal oratorical contest at La Crosse.
The purpose of the organization is such that it should enlist the sympathies of all young men of the school. It is to train its members in public speaking, debating, parliamentary practice, and intelligent thinking in public meetings.

The Agrifallian is an organization of the agricultural students of the River Falls State Normal School. It is one of the oldest men’s organizations in the school and has had a membership during the past year, larger than that of any other literary society. Its object is not only to promote and stimulate interest in agricultural problems but also to give the young men training in debating, public speaking and parliamentary practice.
This year marks the greatest success in the history of the organization. In the fall of the year the Agrifallian put on a play entitled, “What Became of Parker.” The proceeds of this play were used to put on a com, grain and poultry show which was held in the Normal Gymnasium, Feb. 6, 7 and 8,1920.
The main feature of the organization of this show was that the educational exhibits were planned and set up by the members of the Agrifallian. Each student in the Farm Mechanics course made a show coop and students had charge of the entry of the poultry and grain. This experience will no doubt be of great value to them when they go out to teach. It is planned to make this show an annual event.
The future of the Agrifallian looks promising indeed. We hope the Agrifallian will in the future as it has in the past, continue to do its bit in helping River Falls Normal maintain its high standing in Agricultural Education in Wisconsin.

The Spirit Club was reorganized early in the fall of 1919, with a membership of ten men. The work of the Spirit Club was evident throughout the football and basketball season. They took an active part in the mass meetings and at the games, co-operating with the G. O. P., instilling the pep and school spirit into the student body.
Money was raised by selling peanuts at the football games on the home gridiron. Before the State championship football game the club put on the play, "Owin’ to Maggie.” The proceeds of the play helped pay the expenses of the Spirit Club in accompanying the team to LaCrosse.
At the beginning of the basketball season fourteen new members were initiated into the club. At every basketball game on the home floor the Spirit Club and G. O. P. in their red and white uniforms, made a red and white embankment along the east wall of the Gym. Between halves they entertained the fans and spectators with various stunts.
On Jan. 23, the Spirit Club accompanied the basketball team to Menomonic to witness the game with Stout. The school spirit of Stout was a minus quantity compared to that of the red and white rooters.
The Spirit Club is an organization of pep. It should be well supported so that in the future the well established R. F. X. S. school spirit may continue.

THE 1919 FOOTBALL REVIEW
The 1919 football team was one of Coach Hayward’s annual championship teams.
Mr. Hayward’s success in turning out championship teams is due to his love for the game and his ability to handle men.
The team this year had an unusual number of injuries, but the squad and the school were united to push over another championship and with the determination of “Doug” and “Peerne and Capt. Lota, we came through with it. We owe much of our success in winning the championship to those boys who fought so consistently on the second team.
With seven or eight old letter men back we expect Coach Hayward and Captain Sands to win another State championship for our Red and White.

DO UG I. AS AI.I.ARD.
Allard—"Doug" was always on the job, and few were the yards put over his position at tackle. On the offense, he could be counted upon to open up a hole for the backs when the play was directed over his position. We will miss “Doug" next season, as he has been one of the mainstays of our line for the last three years.
Lotz—Captain Lotz proved himself a worthy leader and did much toward the success of the 1910 team. His gameness and his spirit of leadership helped to keep up the fighting spirit of the squad. Had he been able to play his tackle position throughout the season lie would undoubtedly have been one of the best line-men in the conference.
ARCH IK MORROW.
Archie Morrow—playing his third and last season for the Red and White. "Peenie" more than lived up to his past record. Shifted to a back field position, he developed into one of the best halfbacks we have had in several years. His work on the 1919 team should class him as one of the best all round athletes produced at the "Falls."
Sands—"Sandy" was always good for a gain whenever called upon to carry the ball. He hit the line hard and low and in the Eau Claire game did brilliant work, hitting their right side of the line for repeated gains. One of his biggest assets is his fighting spirit and as
Captain of the 1020 team, he should be a great leader.ATHLETICS
Ottcrson—“Hank” was one of the pleasant surprises of the season at the pivot position.
He mastered the intricacies of the center job in fine style, his passing was accurate and consistent, and in addition, he was a good defensive man and a sure tackier. Another season ought to sec him develop into one of the best centers in the conference.
Bliss—“Stub” was one of the old reliables of the line. Playing in every game of the season, he was a consistent offensive and defensive player and always held up his side of the line in first class shape. His quiet determination was a big factor in the strength of the forward line.
Chinnock—“Chin” was a fixture at the end position throughout the season. He possessed the build and speed for an ideal end and was a good man at breaking up the opposing interference and nailing the runner. He got down under punts in good style and was a good receiver of the forward pass.
Olson—“Ole” didn’t break into the limelight until the latter part of the season, because of injuries, but won a half-back berth for the championship game by his driving power. In the first half, he made repeated gains on line smashes, and was a cause of constant worry to the La Crosse secondary defense.
EDWARD MURPHY. Page 90
— 1920 —
Hunter—“Chuck” played regular end with the exception of the time he was out on account of injuries. He made up in nerve and fighting qualities what he lacked in weight and few gains were made around his end. The only time he came out of a game was when he had to be carried from the field.
“CHUCK” HUNTER. HECTOR MORROW.
Hector Morrow—“Heck” stepped into the fullback position at the first of the season and held it down in great style. In the championship game with La Crosse, he played a whale of a game, both on the offense and the defense, and got off some beautiful punts when our goal line was threatened.
Murphy—"Murph" was there with the goods when it came to a pinch and could play back of the line or in it as the occasion demanded. His tackling was of a high order and in more than one instance, he saved a possible touchdown by a sure running tackle. We arc expecting big things from him next season.
Clapp—“Percy” was a tower of strength at guard, and time and again broke up the opposing play before it got well under way. He used his weight to advantage and handled his opponent in every contest in which he participated. In the Stout and La Crosse games his work was excellent.ATHLETICS
Brown—“Brownie" won his place in the hearts of the Kails rooters, when he booted us to a 3 to 0 victory over Superior.
With but a few minutes left to play, he put across a drop kick that sewed the game up.
He was a good aggressive lineman, and held down a guard position until forced to the sidelines by injuries.
LYALL BROWN WILLIAM SMITH
Smith—“Billy" was the original hard luck victim of the squad. A broken collar bone kept him out of the game until we met Eau Claire, but he came through with the winning touchdown in that contest. He could dodge well and handled the ball cleanly at the quarterback position.
Melvin—As substitute quarterback. Melvin proved a valuable man to the squad, and tilled the position creditably in the Stout game and portions of the Superior and Stevens Point games. He kept his head at all times and ran interference in good shape.
Kahland—Earl was a first-class back, and when called upon to relieve one of the regulars, came through with a lot of punch and determination. In the last part of the I .a Crosse game, he did some good defensive playing. He also made a good showing in the Superior and St. Mary's games.
— 1920 —MELETEAN
ROBERT SCOTT COACH HAYWARD
Scott—“Scotty" was one of the hardest workers on the squad. Playing at half and end, he did his share in winning the Northern Championship. He was always on the job, and gave all he had in every play. He was pulling for the best interests of the team at all times.
Coach Hayward was one of Minnesota’s championship quarterbacks. We were very fortunate in securing him to coach our 1916 football team. The result was he won the second state championship in the history of the Red and White. Pinkie is second to none in the state as a football coach. He has a record of coaching three championship teams here, one of which was a state, and the other two of the northern section.

— 1920 —ATHLETICS
Bill Chandler lias made a name never to be forgotten in the basketball world. He made his start as a coach in the River Falls Normal by turning out a 1000% team. He is a man that plays his game hard and clean and he coached his men to do the same. The students and faculty have been more than proud of their coach and team this season.
Captain Reed, a product of the Ellsworth High School, finished his basket ball career at River Falls in a blaze of glory, lie is the best forward who has ever represented this school. After three seasons.

ship team, lie not only led the conference in the number of baskets made, hut surpassed all other players in the percentage of free throws completed. Besides having an eagle eye for the basket, his floor work was exceptional. "Ted" deserves to be named captain of the all conference team.
Morrow, playing his third season of conference basket ball and second season on a state championship team, is second to none when it comes to keeping the ball out of the opponents’ baskets. Time after time. “Peenie" would break up the opponents' play and turn almost certain defeat into victory. He has completed hi third year of competition and will be lost to

Kreugcr. _ who has been Reed's running mate for several years, completed his third year of basket ball at River Falls with a reputation of being the fastest guard in the conference. Milt could always be depended upon to come through in a pinch. He not only held his opponents to low score , but was a big factor in our scoring machine. ja 'i'1
The loss of Kreugcr will be greatly felt for hi position will be a difficult one to fill.

“JIMMY” CAROLAN. LLOYD RICE.
Carolan, playing his first season with the Normal team, was the find of the season. Although handicapped by his weight, “Jimmy’ was right there all the time and surprised his opponents by his wonderful basket shooting and pivoting. He ranks next to Reed in total points scored, having made twenty-seven baskets and one free throw. His best games were against Stout Institute and Oshkosh. Jim will be back again next season, and, with this year’s experience, should be the class of the conference.
Rice, finishing his second season on a state championship team, was responsible for the wonderful showing of the entire team, for a center cither makes or breaks a team. “Aik” was not a spectacular player but could always be depended to play his consistent game. He will be with the team another year, and no doubt will again be a stumbling block to all of the conference teams. Rice is easily the best center in the conference.
Sands, Melvin, Olson and Jacobi were the four substitutes who were always on the job ready to fill in whenever needed. These men did not get many chances to display their ability in the conference games, but were a great help in developing the first five men. A great deal of credit is due them for their untiring efforts in turning out a state championship team.
The second team was also a big factor of the season and deserves much credit for the competition they put up against the first team men. The men who deserve honorable mention are Hutchinson. Wright, Prucha, Davis, Chinnock and Sweeney.

BASKET BALL SUMMARY
River Falls State Normal School, represented by the only 1,000% team in the basket ball history of the red and white, easily won the championship of the state by winning ten straight games, defeating all of the teams in the northern section and trouncing Oshkosh Normal School in two championship games. Outside of the conference games River Falls played some of the strongest teams in this section of the country.
The first game of the season was played at Madison against the State University where River Falls took the short end of the 17 to 36 score. The Nornial-ites had practiced only one week but showed great promise of a championship team. The next day they played Ripon, the Wisconsin College Champions, who were forced to the limit for their victory.
The surprise of the season came when River Falls played the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis, where Minnesota was held to a 26 to 23 score. They had already won three games by overwhelming scores so the prospects for a red and white victory were not very bright. Immediately after the game began, Minnesota realized she was up against a tough proposition. It was not until the final minute that Arnston caged a basket and a free throw which gave the Gophers a three point lead. This game clearly demonstrated the advantage of the short pass game with which Coach Chandler has been very successful.
The Normal Conference season opened with River Falls playing Superior in two successive games. Both times they won by a comfortable margin. Neither Stout Institute nor Eau Claire Normal could shorten the River Falls stride, at home or on foreign floors.
The victory at Stevens Point was a surprise to sonic, but River Falls had an easy victory because she seemed to play her best games away from home. Stevens Point came to River Falls, with Horne, one of her veterans, back on the squad. This cost River Falls one of her hardest fights for a victory.
During this time Oshkosh was cleaning things up in the southern section and fortunately won the championship of the south. A series of championship games was arranged, one game to be played at River Falls, one at Oshkosh, and in case of a third game both teams would travel to Madison to decide the championship of the state. The first game at River Falls was a hair raising fight, Oshkosh playing a strong defensive game, while the red and white team depended upon their short passes and offensive work. After a nip and tuck battle the home team went to the showers with the victory ball 17 to 14. The second game of the scries was played at Oshkosh and again, to the surprise of all basket ball fans, River Falls played the best game of the season, and easily won the State Championship, 21-11. A third game was not necessary and the rooters who expected to see the third game at Madison were gladly disappointed. As a result of the championship the entire school was given a half holiday, the students taking part in a parade thru the down town section of the city. The 1,000% championship team ended its season at a banquet given by the enthusiastic business men of the city at the Gladstone Hotel.

THE 1919 BASEBALL TEAM
The season started out with many of the best baseball players that River Falls ever had. Clifford Conrad, being; a veteran and an exceptionally good baseball man, was elected captain of our 1919 team. Wc were very fortunate in having such men as Lowry, Peterson, Kruse, Reed, Gregor and Dunbar.

“And then, just when the car is within a hair breadth of her. I’ll grab her by the dress and pull her away unhurt. I'll have won the everlasting gratitude of Mr. and Mrs. Hunter who so fondly love their only daughter and—.” Alicia’s imagination had come to the climax of its present theme and paused for more material to work on.
She was lying stretched out full length in the hay mow. watching the last rays of reflected sunlight disappear from the heretofore rosy clouds of the west. Moreover she had removed her slippers when she entered the hay mow and left them by the ladder. That was another item in her method of being comfortable. It certainly was not a very graceful position for a young lady of sixteen to be in, and would probably have been severely criticized bv her more elegant friends, but why should she assume a precise position when there was no one to see her ? That was like putting powder on your face when you weren’t going anywhere. Even if her most fashionable friend, Vera, would turn her down if she knew of it, Dick wouldn’t care.
Dick was the college brother whom her father and mother had gone to meet. It was ten miles to town and it takes ages to go twenty miles even in a car. so Alicia felt safe in her retreat for a long time. She had prepared supper all but the dishing-up so she had no work on her mind.
“They asked me so carefully,” Alicia went on with her dream, “if I was hurt and insisted I should come in have some sponge—“Say, did I hear that screen door slam? Toby must have pushed his way in. “—some sponge cake—.” I hope he doesn't get on the table, “—some sponge cake and ice cream—.” 1 wonder where that car that just went by was going? “Well, I went in though of course I told them I wasn't a bit hungry.” Alicia was getting real and imaginary things muddled.
Squeak_bang!! Whatever was down there on the barn floor? Tramp-whish-h!
A rattle of com, sound of a tumble, and a muttered oath. Alicia crept to the edge of the mow verv carefully and looked through a crack. It was quite dusk in there and she couldn't see verv plain but there was certainly some one down there. He was just now trying to untangle his feet from a roll of wire netting.
— 1920 —
To say that Alicia was frightened could scarcely describe her feeling. Thump I thump! thump! her heart seemed to be saying, while inside a hundred little voices were telling her, "It's the thief that’s been stealing father’s corn. He came (thump) because he knew father was (thump) away and he’ll take it all. Oh! I wish Pa or Ma or somebody were here.”
At first she wanted to run, but she was not the kind of girl who generally likes to keep still or run. Besides this man down here didn’t know any more than to come stealing corn in a dress suit and before it was hardly dark. But what else did that bag mean ? It looked like a bag, anyway.
Who was it? Father thought it was Grant Darkson. Well, it might be. Grant was always dressed up and gadding around the country anyway, but didn’t the poor simpleton have any overalls?
He went over to the corn pile and picked up an ear of corn to look at it "A fine specimen,” he muttered, “a fine specimen for our Agriculture Professor.” Of course the girl could not hear his words but his action was too suggestive. She looked wildly around for a pitchfork. It was down below. What was this under her hand ?—ah! her slipper, just the thing. Whiz-z it went through the air from her upraised hand and struck the unfortunate thief on his carefully combed head. She ducked low so he could not see her and watched again through the small crack. He gave a startled look around, a short groan, and began to search for the missile. Well—alright, another slipper went through the air with equal success. Picking up both slippers, with something like a yell, he burst from the barn.
Oh! was she going to faint from the reaction? That’s what most heroines did. No, she’d wait and tell father how she scared awav the corn thief and he’d—‘ Pa! Ma! Alicia!”
Well what in all time?
There was Dick standing in the doorway struggling out of his tie.
.Three seconds would cover the time it would take Alicia to reach the house despite the fact that she had no shoes on.
“Dick! Dick! How did you get here?” she asked breathlessly, “and where are Pa and Ma?”
“I came out from town in a car. Search me as to where Pa and Ma are. That’s what I want to ask you. I’ve been here five minutes and haven’t seen a soul, let alone anything to eat.” said Dick, holding his sister dose.
“Oh say, Alicia. I forgot, this is a chum of mine, Mr. Lawton. By the way, Fred, where did you get those slippers?”
Alicia looked up into the face of the corn thief, then down at her shoeless feet. A quick flush rushed to her face as she perceived one pink toe peeping out of its jacket. She looked up at her brother with a gleam of merriment in her eyes however, as she stammered—
“I believe I’ve met—er—Mr. Lawton before, Dick. Tell him I’m sorry, please.”
“Say Dick," cut in Fred Lawton, “you’ll never send me to hunt your family again. I’ll carry the lumps on my head to my dying day.”
“No! I don’t suppose 77 have to send you,” retorted Dick. “When a young man carries off a young lady’s slippers for souvenirs, at first sight, it’s a pretty good sign he's hard hit. Where are you going to carry them, Fred ? It strikes me they’ll be rather bunglesomc over your heart.”
“That wasn’t first sight. That was sight unseen, Dick." Alicia corrected gravely.
HIS LAST JOKE
It was a wild, blustering night that Paul Parrel and Jim Newton kept watch over their dead friend, old Patrick McGregor. As they sat there listening to the weird noises and shrieks of the wind, they fell to discussing old Pat in low tones. Mow well he used to love to joke. In fact, he never was as happy as when he could “get something over on someone."
“Why," Jim exclaimed, slapping his knees, “it doesn't seem possible that we'll never again be the goats of Pat's humor."
“No, we won’t be any more, but we’ll not miss him as much as little Billie will."
They sat there for some time talking about their old “pal” and how his twelve year old grandson, Billie, would miss him. Billie had always been such a pal to his fun-loving grandfather that it was almost impossible to imagine them separated.
Suddenly Jim and Paul heard a scratching, buzzing noise. It seemed to come from the coffin which was nearly across the door of a little room adjoining the one in which they sat. Their hair pointed heavenward and it seemed as if their eyes could stay in their heads little longer, for there, coming out of the coffin, was Pat’s voice. “Hello, fellows! Better go to bed. I’m not afraid to stay alone. Sure’n it’s a pleasant evenin’ for ye to be away from home. Goodnight, old pals.”
Before either Paul or Jim could move, the voice repeated the words, and started repeating them the third time. But before they were heard a third time, Jim and Paul had stumbled out of the room as fast as they could. Not until they reached the kitchen did they stop. Wild-eyed, they stood and looked at each other.
The voice had ceased when Billie came out to the kitchen and found them still standing there. He looked first at one and then at the other.
“D-d-did you hear anything?" Jim stammered.
“Guess I did.” Billie sturdily answered.
“Wha-what was it?” Paul breathlessly asked.
“Oh,” Billie began, as if preparing to tell a long story, “I just played a record on that old phonograph in the little dark room. Grandpa had it made when he talked and he made me promise to play it when he was dead and you was there, and I did."
Jim and Paul looked foolishly at each other, grinned and murmured, in one voice, “His last joke.”

PATENT APPLIED FOR
With the steady increase of the world’s population, the time will come some day, when it will be necessary to increase the land supply of this earth. Mr. D. E. Wright and I have discovered a plan by which we shall be able to accomplish such an end.
The apparatus to be used in this small undertaking is to consist of a huge tube, several hundred miles long, force pumps operated by electrical motors with infinite power, power plants, which arc to be established at all available water power sites in the world, transmission lines to carry the current from these places to the point of operation, a heating system, and walls to enable us to separate the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
We propose to locate our largo tube in the Atlantic Ocean, with one end just far enough south to insure a steady intake of water throughout the year. The other end is to extend just far enough north so that the water, as it is pumped out of the tube at that end, will freeze, forming a mountain of ice, and will remain frozen for all time. The heating system is to be installed upon this tube so as to prevent the water from freezing in transit. The force pumps and motors will be located at the south end of the tube and will operate continuously until the task has been accomplished. Electrical power plants will be established in South America, where we find unlimited water power going to waste.
It is absolutely necessary that we preserve one of the oceans in its natural state, not only as a means of supplying rainfall for the pursuit of agriculture, but also as a relic, for future generations, of that which, by a too intensive application of our proposed plan, might have become extinct.
This will leave the base of the entire Atlantic Ocean open for settlement and increase our available land supply by millions of square miles.
(Patents have been applied for. We presume that the public is now patiently awaiting the day when we shall have boarded a ship, been carried out to sea, and dumped mercilessly out to begin work on our proposed undertaking.)

TO THOSE WHO HAVE LAUNCHED UPON THE SEA OF LIFE
Our record of the past year would not be complete without sonic mention of vou who have prepared the way for us. Because of your need this institution was founded and enlarged. Your efforts and loyalty have caused it to prosper. But for you tin's institution would not be what it is. It is you, in a large measure, whom we shall thank for the privileges which we enjoy. You have come and gone; your stay was brief as time is counted in the vast ages that have rolled into eternity; and although vour work lies elsewhere, vour spirit still remains. There is scarcely a comer in North and South Hall but gives speechless testimony of its former occupants. Wander into the Library, there row upon row are the books over which you have labored. Open to any registration cover, and there we see your names. The symbols are not as perfectly formed as you would form them today, but nevertheless they are the milestones which mark your progress and bind us in a common line of association and interest. The memorials in the building commemorate your efforts, even as they perpetuate the memory of those whom you so unselfishly honored. The trees which you have planted about the campus give beautiful though silent evidence of your love for Alma Mater, and as their branches reach out farther each year, so likewise your influence is ever broadening in this sea of life. You have stemmed the tide; the breakers dashing back upon a rockbound coast have revealed to us treasure such as may have been undiscovered, but is ours by right of acceptance.
We, the class of 1920, are now upon the verge of the unknown. Our struggles and battles to attain the height of your achievements is the goal that we have l»ccn inspired to reach. Through this you arc bound to us by those unbroken links of fellowship.
All hail to our predecessors. Let the old bells ring forth the echo of your coming and going. Your voiceless presence lends enchantment, your activities engendered here rebound. The gold of your bounty remains, as it were, in the melting pot of Alma Mater.

GREETINGS FROM OUR ALUMNI
In behalf of the staff of 1919 I certainly wish the best of success with the Meletcan, and extend the heartiest good wishes to each and every member of the class of 1920.
Fred F. Huber, 1919.
I find it difficult to put into words the many different emotions which surge over me as my thoughts go back to my old school home. The privilege of later teaching in the institution which first unfolded to me the opportunities which come with knowledge has drawn me very close in affection and reverence to the River Falls Normal.
The Alumni of the Red and White are bound together in a stronger tic of unity and co-operation than are the graduates of most institutions. For the River Falls Normal lives and grows by the development of a rugged and sturdy spirit of independence. It courageously faces the conflicting problems of the future with a firm knowledge that it is able to meet them.
The River Falls spirit is difficult of analysis. It is essentially a spirit of cooperative service. To diffuse such a spirit abroad in the world today is a great object.
May our Alma Mater hold firm to the precedents and traditions which have given it and its students the power they have today.
Greetings and good wishes,
Herbert B. Wentz, Class 96.
To the young and youthful graduates of the R. F. N. S. of 1920, which includes them all, I extend greetings in behalf of the “old timers" of my day who have spent four years in the cold, cold world and have not yet become chilled clear through. Even though you arc deprived of the pleasure of winning a world war within a year or two after graduation as was our privilege, you will undoubtedly find many fields yet to conquer whether you draw a position in the school at Prescott Roads, or become the head of one of our great universities.
Best wishes to you as you pass on into the ranks of the alumni of the R. F. N. S.
Wilbur P. Ensign, T6.
TO THE GRADUATES OF 1920.
Our stores of today are seeds for tomorrow, and, as one of the graduates of the River Falls Normal, I wish success and good luck to those graduating at this commencement time. You have your tools with which to build and may you use them to the best advantage. Give to society your best. The generations to come must do the work you have left undone, and your plans whether good or bad, will be finished by those who are to follow you.
Julia S. Anderson, '19.
TO THE OLD FRIENDS.
I admire the soul that always rings true, that can be depended upon to do his utmost under adverse conditions as well as when the going is fine. I rejoice that so many of the Normal students of the eighties are now doing the world’s work in the most commendable manner and in worthy spirit.

Did you ever stop to think of the dangers to which your clothes are subjected, when hung out on the line—dangers that are ever present in flying dust—dangers of contagion? Have you ever realized how unsafe and unsanitary is this method of drying clothes?
Compare this haphazard method with the modem method of having your washing called for by an up-to-date, sanitary, scientific laundry like ours, where every cleanly precaution is taken, every sanitary care exercised.
