RAMER IT is with true reverence and respect, and with a feeling of genuine gratitude for the splendid accomplishments of his fifteen years of faithful service that we view the retirement of Mr. P. W. Ramcr as regent of our school. Retiring Regent P. W. Ramer has been a member of the Normal Board since 1918, serving for a time as president of the board and almost continuously on the auditing committee. The type of service he has rendered during those fifteen years has caused him to be recognized not only as a business man of exceptional ability, but as a man well informed in the field of education. Under his guidance and efforts, there has grown up from a tiny embryo in a small, out-of-the-way western Wisconsin town the fine educational institution we are proud to call our Alina Mater. Many were the improvements of the school plant during Mr. Rainer’s period of service. South Hall was remodeled into the fine unit it is today; in 1914, North Hall was constructed; and, as a crowning monument to his achievements, in 1925, the new Training School was erected, which is recognised as one of the finest training school buildings in the state. From time to time appropriations have been secured for the enlargement of the school farm and for the construction of the present farm buildings. Also the athletic field which bears his name was purchased. In closing our tribute we cannot laud too highly the man who has probably contributed more to the upbuilding of our college than any other man in the history of the institution. KiiktetnREGENT JAY H. GRIMM MR. JAY H. GIUMM, who succeeds Mr. Hamer as regent of the River Falls State Teachers College, has been a resident of the city of River Falls all his life. Mr. Grimm has a very commendable record of accomplishments in community and public service and is held in high esteem by all. Mr. Grimm graduated from the River Falls High School and attended what is now our own college, then the River Falls Normal School. He continued his education by taking up the study of law and was admitted to the bar in December, 1900. lie commenced the practice of law as a partner of Mr. Nils P. Haugen here at River Falls and has continued in that profession in this city ever since. He was appointed Assessor of Incomes in 1911 and held that position for twelve years. During the period of the World War, Mr. Grimm devoted a large portion of his time to the service of his country, acting in the capacity of secretary of the Legal Advisory Board of Pierce County and as chairman of the Y. M. C. A. and Liberty Loan drive. In 1928 lie was elected president of the Piercc-St. Croix County Bar Association. Mr. Grimm has always taken an active interest in the affairs of our college, loyally supporting and promoting its growth as chairman of that group of business men known as the College Promotion Committee. We feel that in the selection of Mr. Grimm as our new regent a man has been chosen who will capably foster and curry on the progressive work of our college.PRESIDENT J. H. AMES THE publication of this volume of the Melctean constitutes a record of another year of progress and growth in the life of the institution. A college like any other living organism must continue to grow and develop, otherwise it inevitably becomes a victim of death and decay. Such is the law of life. The growth of an institution represents itself not so much in the numerical strength of its student body and instructional staff, but in less tangible and more im| ortant elements. As we survey the record of.this year and of recent years, what evaluation may we place on our achievements? The improvement of the facilities of the institution in physical plant and equipment has made possible an increased efficiency in the work of the school. The teaching staff has constantly strengthened, not so much through changes in personnel, but in the growth and improved training of the members in service. The year has been marked by an earnestness of purpose in the labors to which students and teachers have jointly assigned themselves. A higher type of leadership in student organizations has characterized the activities of the year. This leadership has regarded service to the institution rather than personal advantage as its goal. The school spirit has been sound and wholesome. It has been free from narrowness and pettiness and has been characterized by a spirit of loyalty to the institution and a spirit of cooperation in all its enterprises. tu • TwentyCHARLES G. STRATTON AS tlic class of 1930 reaches the end of its third year and pauses to review the accomplishments of the three years spent at River Falls, there is one person who stands out above all others, the one who has willingly lent his help and guidance to our class activities, our advisor. Professor Charles G. Stratton. Charles G. Stratton has been geology and geography instructor at River Falls State Teachers College since 1915. Mr. Stratton is a graduate of Central Michigan Normal, has taken graduate work at the University of Chicago, and holds an A.B. degree from Michigan Normal College. He is a member of the American Geographical Society, and his deep interest in the conservation of our natural resources places him as one of the most prominent and active members of the local Isaac Walton League. During the World War, Mr. Stratton served as a member of the American Commission to Negotiate Peace and spent six months in Paris at the close of the war, working as one of the two assistants to Mark Jefferson, head of the Cartography Department of the Division of Territorial Information in Europe. His services during that period have given him notable recognition which he well deserves. Mr. Stratton was advisor of the class of 1921 for five years, during the period when students could start with an eighth grade diploma, take the so-called live year course and graduate from the school. In connection with the same class lie was faculty advisor of the 1921 Melctean. It is with the deepest appreciation and respect that the third year class has come to regard Professor Stratton. His sterling character and pleasing personality as a teacher, advisor, man, and friend have won the admiration of us all. Tieml'jOneJohn M. May M. A.

University of Wisconsin Agriculture THE COLLEGE THE River Falls State Teachers College is one of the pioneer educational institutions of Wisconsin, having been established in 1871. Since that time the school has grown and developed until today it stands as one of the best colleges for the training of teachers in the state and nation. It is a state supported institution under the genera! administration of the President of the school and the Board of Regents of Normal Schools. The college offers varied and complete courses for the training of teachers. The four year curricula lead to the degree of bachelor of education, which is granted upon their completion. Students taking these courses are prepared to teach in high schools. A three year curriculum is offered for those who wish to teach in junior high schools, a two year curriculum for those who wish to become teachers in the elementary and grammar grades, and a one year curriculum for the training of teachers in rural schools.

Valparaiso University Director Principals Department Located in the beautiful St. Croix Valley, easily accessible from the towns and cities of western Wisconsin, the school is ideally situated to carry on the work of furnishing teachers for this section of our state. There is not another school in the state that is better equipped to carry on its strong and influential program than is River Falls. The school plant has been enlarged necessarily from time to time to keep pace with the growth and the development of the school. When the school opened its first session in 1875 there was but one building. This original building was destroyed by fire in 1898 and was replaced by the fine building known today as South Hall, which is surrounded by a spacious and beautiful ten acre campus. This building houses the liberal arts and general academic departments of the school. The capacious south wing of this building is occupied by the library. Tills is not only one of the most attractive departments of the institution but it is one of the largest and most complete libraries in the state. There arc over 16,000 bound volumes of the best in literature on various subjects. Vavnk La Duke M. S. University of Wisconsin Education Margaret Chapman Kim: A. M.

Thoroughly modern and up-to-date, it contains laboratories that cannot be excelled for equipment. The last wing is given over to the men’s gymnasium and the auditorium. Both ore large and well equipped. A new building, the best in school housing and modern in every detail, was constructed in 1927 at a cost of $150,000. This building is used for the training department, with its basement equipped for the physical training department. The school farm and the mechanics building complete an efficient and adequate school plant. The college owns and operates a farm of 100 acres lying adjacent to the campus. This farm is used for agricultural experimentation and demonstration. A herd of dairy cows is kept, and other live stock are maintained on the farm. The livestock is housed in large modern farm buildings adjaeent to the campus. The mechanics building is a large frame building with well equipped blacksmith-ing, drawing, wood working, and wood turning laboratories. The tools and equipment arc modern and complete. James D.

Sciilosser Boston School of Expression English, Expression Undoubtedly the most important course in the school is the four year degree course which trains students to become agricultural teachers in Smith-Hughes high schools or fits them to teach other subjects in the modern high school. The River Falls State Teachers College was the first school of its kind in the United States to offer a teacher-training course in agriculture. Since 1912 when the department was first organised, it has enjoyed a rapid and substantial growth, until today the National Board of Vocational Education recognises its graduates as the leading candidates for positions as teachers of agriculture in our high schools. The school is adequately equipped to train the teachers of agriculture. Its modern laboratories afford complete academic training, while its farm and livestock offer opportunity for the practical application of that knowledge. Special training features of the department are the annual grain and poultry show, and the agricultural field day, where practice and experience in preparing projects, demonstrations, and exhibits are given. Practice touching is done in the River Falls High School, an accredited Smith-Hughes school. Charles G. Stratton A. B. Michigan Normal College Geology, Geography .Erasmus A. Whitenack A. B.

A recent investigation of high school teaching conditions in the state shows that more than eighty per cent of the teachers in these schools are actually teaching more than one line of subject-matter. This is particularly true of the schools in that part of the state served by the River Falls Teachers College. The teaching force in these high schools is limited in number and it is necessary for each teacher to handle several lines of work. In view of these conditions extreme specialization is avoided in the curricula for high school teachers. Each student pursues one major and one minor line of subject-matter and receives a good general training in each. The growing need for well-trained principals and supervisors in our schools today is met in our college by a department which offers curricula for the training of principals and supervisors for state graded schools and high schools. A three year curriculum for the training of junior high school teachers is offered. Alberta M.

The school has two year curricula and departments for the training of grammar grade teachers, intermediate grade teachers, and primary teachers. The Department for the Training of Rural Teachers was established in 1911 and now supplies practically all the teachers for the surrounding counties. Four one room school rooms arc operated by the college and afford excellent conditions for practice. Nor is tile opportunity for social and physical development slighted at River Falls. A large gymnasium in each building, one for women and one for men, a large athletic field, a fine new swimming pool in the New Building, and the tennis courts on the South Campus afford recreation for all. Athletics of all branches is coached and sponsored for both men and women, and contests arc not only between colleges but also between classes and organizations within the school to afford everyone a chance to participate. Music, forensics, and dramatics arc equally well developed. Mary B.

The school is constructed according to the most modern plans and equipped with the best school fixtures. It contains the offices of the head of the training school department and the heads of the deportments for grammar grade and elementary teachers, along with splendid class rooms and assemblies for the grades. There arc three floors to the building, the third floor containing the junior high school, the second floor the intermediate grades and the first floor the primary grades. The pupils attend from the surrounding city.

The classes arc taught by the practice teachers under the supervision and advice of the critic. This training by an experienced instructor is of great value to the young teacher. Special training is given in art, music, manual arts, home economics, and physical training. It is the aim of these departments not to produce artists or musicians but to create in each child the ability to sec and hear, and the desire to create beauty for himself, that life may be more worthwhile. Let anyone questioning the value of this training stand by any day and watch the children as they come into the art room to work on some useful and interesting project. These include problems in design, harmony of color, beauty of line and form. The projects may include modeling, soap sculpture, study of masterpieces, interior decoration, costuming, drawing and painting, and others too numerous to mention. Lucile M. Forks B. S.

This was also the annual Field Day of the Agricultural Department, and the two events were made the occasion for a gathering of the friends of the school in a Patron’s Day celebration. Faculty and students held open house all day for parents and school officials from the surrounding towns and counties. Mr. Hill of the History Department headed the program committee, and Mr. Hanna of the English Department took charge of the publicity and advertising. Miss Greene of the Art Department was chairman of the exhibits. Miss Irma Hathorn, dean of women, was in charge of the entertainment of the guests. The day began with the dedication of the new building. Members of the Board of Regents and presidents of the other Wisconsin Teachers Colleges were in attendance. State Superintendent J. C. Callahan, Mr. J. W. Doudna, Secretary of the Board of Regents, President Snodgrass of the J.a Crosse Teachers College, and our own regent, Mr. P. W. Ramer, addressed the audience. They traced the progress of education in Wisconsin, and also gave the history of the growth of the college here at River Falls. ThirtyIn the afternoon the guests were conducted over the buildings and the campus to inspect the exhibitions on display in the various departments. Later a reception was held for them by the faculty. During the day various field events were being carried on by the Agricultural Department under the direction of Mr. May. The high schools of the surrounding towns competed in livestock judging and farm shop contests. There were eight to ten high schools entered in these competitions. The instructors of the Agricultural Department were the judges., and a three year cup was awarded to the winner. The students of agriculture in the college were in charge of various exhibits and demonstrations. Choice, pure-bred animals from the College farm were shown, exhibits of grains were displayed, and demonstration teams attracted much interest and comment. The demonstrations showed correct feeding methods of poultry and live stock, the proper housing of farm animals, exhibits of soils, grains and seeds, rope tying, marketing of agricultural products, and many other interesting projects. These were judged by Mr. L. M. Sassman, State Supervisor of Vocational Agriculture. An entertainment in the evening, consisting of a group of piano selections by Miss Wharton, songs by the glee clubs and choruses, and a one-act play rounded out the events of a most successful day. Thirtp-OntCOMMENCEMENT THE 1928 Commencement, the fiftieth in the history of the school, was held in the auditorium of North Hall, Wednesday morning, June sixth. This year commencement was a milestone in the progress and growth of our college, for it was the first time that degrees were ever granted to n graduating class. Of the one hundred seventy-three graduates, thirteen received degrees. Their conventional black caps and gowns lent on added dignity nnd solemnity to the occasion. At ten thirty a processional, led by a choir under the direction of Mr. Geere, of the faculty and graduating students arranged according to classes moved from South Hall across the campus to the College Auditorium. Mr. Geere, Director of the Department of Music, opened the program by singing “The Song of the Pilgrim” by Tschaikowsky. The regular commencement address was delivered by Professor George A. Works of the University of Chicago. Professor Works was a graduate of River Falls in the class of ’98. “Berceuse from Jocelyn” by Godard was played very softly by a string ensemble. President Ames, according to custom, presented the degrees and diplomas to the graduating students. The college orchestra, directed by Miss Arnold, concluded the program by playing “The Recessional” by Rcisenficld. Friends and relatives pushed forward to congratulate the graduates, and commencement was over. Thirty-TwoCLASS DAY 'THE Class Day program of the graduating classes of 1928 vns both impressive J- and beautiful. At ten thirty Tuesday morning the class procession formed at North Hall, and marched to South Campus. First came the college band in their red and white, then the classes, the degree students in their caps and gowns leading. After them were the participants in the morning’s program, including the groups of dancers in their really lovely Greek costumes. Then ns a climax, attended by her maids of honor, crown and train bearers, appeared the class queen who lind been chosen by a class vote several days before, but whose identity had been kept secret until this moment. After the queen had reached her throne and been duly crowned, she gave her gracious permission for the ceremonies to proceed. The usual class history, will, etc. were given, and interwoven with these were Greek dances, interpreting the beautiful myth of Persephone's return to earth. The traditional ceremony of the presentation of the yoke, the symbol of co-operation, was performed by Robert Smith for the seniors, and William Hunt for the juniors. Class Day has become the occasion for the presentation of various awards. The medai presented by the American Legion to the best all-round athlete went this year to Earl Weber, the scholastic awards to Hazel Brusse, Anna Filipa, Ruth Fuller, Theodore Goble, Anna Hawkins, Thelma Hovde, Lois Hunt, Marshall Nor-seng, Victor Peterson, and Gertrude Potter. Thirty-ThreeSUMMER SESSION THE Summer Session is becoming more and more a part of the regular school year at River Falls, especially since the establishment of the four year curricula’ leading to a degree. In 1928 the .majority of the students were working for their degrees. Many "old grads" were back, among them the quartet of athletic fame, Don Fields, Ted Reed, Lloyd Rice, and “Butch” Betzel. Robert Moser '12, now principal of the Cumberland High School, was on the faculty, and Hazel Coon, who teaches in Iowa, was back because of the happy memories she had retained of her former student days here. Altogether, an enjoyable and profitable six weeks were spent in work and play. Fortunately the meeting of the N. E. A. was held in Minneapolis this summer, which gave summer students an opportunity to hear the leading educators of the country, both at the sessions in the city, which many of the students attended, and on our own campus. Addresses were given in the college auditorium by Dr. E. A. Win ship of Boston, Superintendent Francis G. Blair of Illinois, and Ross L. Finney of the University of Minnesota. Thirl,j-FourMiss Kimball's library class enjoyed an interesting trip through the Minnesota Historical Society's Library, the Hill and St. Paul Public Libraries, and the leading high school libraries of St. Paul. Musical entertainments were given by Harry Farbman, the violinist, Mr. Gccre and Miss Wharton, and the women’s glee club. There were also two recitals given by Miss Wharton’s pupils. In athletics Mr. Klandrud gave instruction in tennis to all those who wished to learn the game, and the last week of the session an exeiting tournament took place, in which Velma Dunn and Margaret Fox won. The men students also had a tennis tournament which aroused much interest. Classes in swimming were held for both men and women students and proved very popular. Mr. Klandrud also gave instruction in golf, and tournaments were held on the golf links in which the townspeople as well as the students and faculty were interested. Social life was not neglected. A party was held on South Campus which ended with a dance in the gymnasium; picnics, hikes, tours, and parties were given by various groups. Miss Kimball’s library class ended their summer’s work with a "real” picnic.

May THE SENIOR CLASS T N June of this year, 1929, the River I'nlls State Teachers College will graduutc for the second time a fourth year class. The number of students graduating with degrees has been more tliun doubled since last year. The senior class consists of students who began college life as a group of one hundred and ninety freshmen in 1920. Those students who enlisted in the one, two, or three year courses are now missing from the ranks. Mr. May was chosen class advisor. During the entire four years in which he has acted in this capacity, he has capably directed the activities of the class. The class feels that its success throughout its college career is due in a large part to his advisorship. The year of 1925-1926 was largely devoted to finding and developing the outstanding members of the class. Four of the six college debaters were chosen from this group. Also, Marshall Norseng won for the school a state championship and inter-state championship in extempore speech. The freshmen were royally represented in football and basketball, and loyally supported all activities of the school. As sophomores, the class controlled forensics. The six debaters, John Davison, Thomas Barry, Robert Smith, Donald Olson, Bernard Morton, and Marshall Nor-seng, were all members of this class. That year we had Marshall Norseng again bringing honor to the school by winning first in the State Oratorical Contest and second in the Interstate Contest. In 1927 one of the best proms in the history of the school was put on under the supervision of Jim Landis as chairman of the prom committee. The class was well represented in other activities such as: athletics, drama, and music. That year the college attained nearly every championship for which it competed. In 1928 the captain of the football team, Kurt Wennerberg, was a member of the class. This team was one of the hardest driving teams ever produced by the school. Earl Weber, Truman Glass, and Floyd Mullcndorc, of this class, fought on the squad for three years. In forensics practically the same group participated as had in the two previous years. Victor Peterson as editor-in-chief, and Marshall Norseng as business manager put out a Meletean of credit. As seniors, the class of 1929 was competently represented in forensics. Three members of an excellent debate squad, Marshall Norseng, John Davison, and Fred Wandrey, were from this group. John Davison represented the school in oratory; Fred Wandrey in extempore speech. If one may judge from the records of the members of this class either as teachers of experience or in practice, it is not a hazard to say that the River Falls State Teachers College will have great reason to be proud of this group of graduates.

During their freshmen year, the students of this class became prominent in most of the activities of the college. In the second year, the class continued its record. With the assistance of Mrs. Eidc ns n very capable advisor, and with Glenn I.und as president during the first semester, and Clarence Alfonsc president during the second semester, the class has taken part in all the organizations and activities of the school, and so has been recognized as a necessity to the college. Individuals of the class have made exceptionally good records in music, athletics, forensics, and in the leadership of the college organizations. In all the musical organizations of the school the sophomore class was well represented. Virginia Hagg, Ruth King, Tliomns Runklc, Jerome Fink, and Jules Reinhardt were members of the orchestra and. with the exception of Ruth King and Virginia Hagg, they were also members of the band. The girls' glee club, men’s glee club, ami tlic mixed chorus were composed of many sophomores. Also Ruth King was a member of the girls’ quartette. Athletics was another activity in which the sophomores contributed their share. Clair Rnrtosh, Clarence Alfonsc, and Myrlcn Altcnburg won letters in football. Alfonsc was elected football captain for next year. The basketball squad was represented by Clarence Alfonse, Ray Wile, and William Turner. Forensics was well supported by the sophomore class because several went out for debate and oratory. Tile editor of the "Student Voice,” Henry Hagen, was assisted on the staff by six sophomores, namely, Adolph Hanson, Floyd Miller, Leonard Warner, Harvey Alness, Zonal Beers, Ruth King, and Maxine Blaine.

This is the largest class enrolled in the college. Mr. Hill was appointed as class advisor. The class is very grateful for his efficient leadership. As the originator of novel ideas and plans, such as the auction for Victory Day, he is unequalled. His rare good judgment and capability have brought the class through a most successful year. We shall be glad to have Mr. Hill as advisor throughout our college career. As the largest class in school, it was fitting that the freshman class should take its place in the activities of the school. In the- Homecoming celebration, the class did its full share. The members had charge of the decorations on- the streets and in the business places. There was also a float in the Homecoming parade. In athletics the freshmen were well represented. There were three lettermcn in football from this class: John Schlieht, Arnold Larsen, and Charles Keilholtx. Likewise in basketball there were three freshmen lettermen, Ed Miller, John .Schlieht, and Robert Sutherland. In the inter-class basketball tournament the freshman team won first place. The personnel of this team was: Krueger (Captain), Hammer, Sharlau, Kcilholt ., Weishapple, Anderson, and Larson. In the fall tennis tournament George Thomas, a well-known member of the freshman class, won first place. In forensics the class of ’33 was represented by William Hawkins and Horace Merrill. William Hawkins was alternate on the negative debate squad, and entered the finals in oratory. Horace Merrill entered the finals in oratory, and was alternate for extemporaneous speuking. The class has reason to be proud of their record during their first year in college. Among the girls the freshman class was certainly well represented. There were four girls on the W. A. A. Executive Council. A freshman girls’ volleyball team,-captained by Marian C'udd, won the tournament. There were also three girls on the varsity basketball squad. Four freshman girls are winning letters this year. Twenty-two girls were initiated into G. O. P. this year, many of whom served on important committees. One of our number, Joyce Bergseng, is next year's president of Y. W. C. A. By this necessarily incomplete summary of the activities of the class of '33. it will be easily seen that this class has taken an important place in the life of the school, a place which will become increasingly important in the next few years. The prestige and honor of the school will be upheld to its highest degree by this class. iWnefy-OneACHBNBACK T. ANDERSON BENSON BRAGSTAD CHICK KK C. ANDKHSON BEEBE 8ERNTSON BUllK HOLDER CHAPMAN O.

A. Kargbs ------ President E. A. Whitenack ----- Treasurer Carl Klandrud ------ Coach E. J. Prucha ------ Director W. H. Hunt.............................Director THE function of the athletic council is that of directing the athletic policy of the school and providing funds to support the various phases of athletics. By its forward looking policy the athletic council has made it possible for every man to engage in athletics at River Falls. These men have supplied our athletic teams with the best and most modern equipment available. They have never hesitated to bring the best teams in the state before River Falls fans. With a firm belief in the highest brand of athletics they have sponsored organization and interclass contests, as well ns the annual high school basketball tournament and track meet. The athletic council sets the requirements for the winning of athletic sweaters. These arc: sixty minutes of conference football, nine innings of baseball, two full games of conference basketball, and participation in any teachers college or state track meet. Professor Knrges heads the personnel of the council, which consists of five faculty members who arc prominent in many lines of school work. As treasurer. Professor Whitenack has labored hard, and his efforts have been responsible to a great degree for the success of our athletic teams. No one is more desirous of securing a good athletic schedule for the student body and citizens of River Falls then he. His successful appeals to the students and citizens for financial support are very commendable. In Mr. Prucha River Falls has an athletic director who is a staunch believer in clean sports. He has done much to elevate our standard to its present position. The fourth member of the council is Professor Hunt whose untiring efforts have helped mold our athletic policy. Coach Klandrud, the coach of men as well as athletic teams, is the fifth member of the council. K. A. Kargbs, President One Hundred TteoCOACH KLANDRUD COACH Klandrud has ably piloted the Red and White to a state championship in basketball during his first year ns athletic director at River Falls. He won his "L” in basketball at the I.a Crosse State Teachers College where he gained special distinction playing guard. At the River Falls High School his basketball team won the district championship for three successive years. His team during his second year ns conch won the consolation trophy at the state tournament, and in the third year coach Klnndrud’s five lost to Stevens Point in the state championship game by n score of 9-7. In football his success was just ns outstanding. During his last year at River Falls High School his football team was one of the two undefeated elevens in the state, such strong teams ns I.n Crosse, Fan Claire, and Central High School of Minneapolis being victims of his proteges. The previous year La Crosse was the only football team that succeeded in defeating his eleven. At Marshfield during two succeeding years Klnndrud’s cagcrs again fought their way to the state tournament where they won their first game. It was in view of this excellent record that Mr. Klandrud was selected ns the Athletic Director at River Falls State Teachers College. During his first year here ns football coach the Red and White gridders tied Superior for the northern championship. When La Crosse won a 12-6 victory over River Falls they eliminated us as state championship contenders. La Crosse proved to be the only conference team to score on Klandrud’s well-versed eleven. In basketball with Coach Klandrud at the helm River Falls won their second state championship in three years. Coach Klandrud has inaugurated a forward-looking athletic policy at River Falls. He has organised class and interschool athletic teams in order that every man may have an opportunity for athletic training. Tennis, baseball, track, and swimming have also enjoyed unusual prominence under his guidance. His friendly, sincere approach and easy manner of handling players have won a place for him in the hearts of the men on the team as well as the entire student body. He knows the game as few men do, and above all he knows how to get the most out of his players. Mr. Klandrud is a builder and trainer of men, who places a premium on sportsmanship and clean athletics. One Hundred ThreeMANAGERS Jonx MacDoxald MUCH of the success of our athletic teams is due to the managers. The tasks of the manager arc varied and many. He must be the businessman, the doctor, and the errand boy of the team. He is responsible for every article of equipment which he checks out at any time. It is his job to arrange for the transportation of the teams when they play away from home, as well as make provisions for their lodging and meals on these trips. His task requires that the needs of every member of the team be met, and that each player have all his needed equipment. Then, too, his surgical ability is called into practice when he administers to the bruises, cuts, sprains, or other injuries of the players. Few people realize the hard work, the long hours, and the faithful service rendered the school and our athletic teams in this capacity by our managers, and there are few, perhaps, who receive as little credit and distinction as do the managers for their worry, responsibility, and long hours of toil. This year “Nor” Manion, manager of the football team, and John MacDonald, manager of the basketball squad, have met very capably the responsibility and requirements of good athletic managers. These men have worked faithfully and consistently from the first fall practice at every game until long after the final gun of the season was fired. Both these men have had experience as actual players of the game and this has been of untold value to the members of the team and the coach. They have worked for one year as assistant managers in keen competition with other men of the school in order to earn the positions they have so capably filled. Much of the success achieved by our athletic teams has been due to the ceaseless and untiring efforts of "Nor” and “Mac.’ One Hundred FourCHEER LEADERS JOHX DZUMT THE spirit with which the student body at any college supports athletic teams is dependent upon the extent to which the cheer leaders arc able to arouse the student body. River Falls has always justly prided herself on having a school spirit which has loyally supported her representatives in competing contests. But school spirit is not spontaneous, and it requires cheer leaders with enthusiasm, vigor, and devotion to spur the student body on to a high pitch of loyalty. "Buck" White with his "Have you got ’er, gang?” and his overflowing enthusiasm made the students yell whether they wanted to or not. His ability to rouse the entire school body to action coupled with his initiative, his loyalty, and his encouraging smile have materially contributed to the development and maintenance of the traditional River Falls spirit. John Dzubay has worked hard to develop the support of the student body. It was his sincere appeals for student cooperation, his pep talks, and his able leadership that brought the responses from the student body that helped carry the Red and White teams through many crucial games. John was an essential wheel in our cheering machinery, and he did much to keep Hivcr Falls boosters noisy at Ramer Field and in the little white gym. Although Leonard Madison did not lead cheers very often, he served the school faithfully whenever he was called upon to do so. The cheer leaders of this group have given their loyal service and devoted their ability, energy, and time to the promotion of the traditional River Falls spirit. They have always given their cooperation at football and basketball games, mass meetings, assembly exercises, and parades. We extend our appreciation for their faithful work.

He was a good handler of punts a fine runner, hard blocker, and above all a real leader. "Bud” won for himself a reputation as the smartest quarterback that River Falls has ever bad. The way he handled his team at Superior when the odds were against him will long be remembered by River Falls fans. “Bud” goes into an athletic contest, with the kind of River Falls spirit that we hope all of our future athletes will have. He is the type Hint the Red and White are proud of. RIVER Falls enjoyed another successful football season in 1928. Under the guidance of Coach Klandrud, and the inspiring leadership of Captain "Bud" Manion the Falls eleven earned the distinction of being a heady, powerful, and hard driving team. In the backfield quarterback Manion was teamed with the same players who had upheld the Red and White colors for the past two years on Rainer Feld. They were: Standish, MacDonald, and Altcnbcrg. half-backs, and Claflin and Klimper, fullbacks. In the line were such seasoned players as Luberg, guard, Hagestad, Jenson, and Farrell, tackles, Alfonse and Segcrstrom, ends, and Hunt at center. New n»cn in Red and White livery were Bartosh and Keilholtz guards, Krueger, taekle, and Thomas and Peterson, ends, Scldicht, quarterback, I .arson halfback, and Hammer fullback. These men played a steady consistent brand of football, giving River Falls a well balanced team with exceptionally strong reserve strength. G ei a id Maxiox One Hundred Eight BY defeating St. Thomas 20-12 and Mainline 17-0 in pre-season gomes the Red and White gridders established recognition as championship contenders. As the conference season started River Rolls began her victorious inarch when Stout, Milwaukee, and Eau Claire bowed to the Red and White gridders in rapid succession. Superior, the "Wonder team of the North,” was next held to a scoreless tie by Coach Klandrud’s eleven. The Red and White team remained in the conference’ race until the last game of the season when La Crosse succeeded in defeating us after a hard fought battle by a score of 12-0. The Kellcrites were the only conference team to score on the Falls eleven this year. Letters were awarded to sixteen players: Captain "Hud” Manion, Captain-elect, Clarence Alfonsc, Standish, MacDonald, Claflin, Altenberg, Larson, Schlicht, Scger-strom, Jenson, Hagestad, Farrell, Lubcrg, Hunt, Keilholtz, and Bartosh. Lettermen returning next year arc Captain Alfonse, Schlicht, Larson, Keilholtz, and Bartosh. With the remaining members of the squad, Klimper Hammer, Sutherland, Peterson, Thomas, and Krueger, back, prospects for next year look bright. CAPTAIN-ELECT ALFONSE I» Coach Klandscd Alfonse wns moved from the backficld to line and immediately won for himself a position as a regular wing man.

THOMAS 12 RlVF.lt Fulls opened the 1928 football season by defeating the strong St. Thomas eleven 20-12 on Cadet Field. This game goes down in history as the first River Falls football game to be broadcast by radio. Many a Falls fan was thrilled as the announcer said, “This man Standish, left-halfback for River Falls, is some runner. He goes through the Tommy line at will and when lie gets into the open he is a hard, hard man to stop.” The Red and White smashed the cadets’ line, tore around their ends, and threw the ball all over the gridiron. The Falls scored first when Alfonso picked up a fumble and raced fifty yards for a touchdown. Claflin tallied again when he plunged over from the three yard line. The last touchdown came when Seger-strom blocked Hall's punt on the cadet fifteen yard line. Sentinel line bucking by Claflin and MacDonald enrried the pigskin over.

But after “Seeg" broke through their line to block a punt, the tide of battle changed. "Mac” and “Winkle” mercilessly ripped the Ilamline line to shreds, scoring touchdowns in both the second and the third quarter. However, the feature of the game was the stellar work of the subs who made five first downs to Hamline’s one in the last quarter. Larson smashed through the opposing line for long gains. In this quarter Johnny Schlicht made several sensational runs. Much of the Falls’ strength was due to the ability of these reserves to carrv on where the regulars left off.

After "Mac” intercepted a pass, he and "Winkic” smashed through the line for the first touchdown. “Roud” played a whale of a game; his passes were accurate ; and he was all over the back field intercepting Stout "heaves."

Playing on a slippery field, the La Crosse Pcds made their touchdowns by recovering a fumble and intercepting a Falls pass. The Red and White showed their usual drive, but they were unable to take advantage of the breaks. Time after time the River Falls eleven rushed the ball deep into La Crosse territory, but the final scoring punch was lacking. The Red and White made their touchdown late in the game when sensational plunging by “Mac” and “Winkle” combined with clever passing put the ball over from the La Crosse thirty-three yard line. At another time the Falls pounded their way to the nine yard line where a fifteen yard penalty halted their march. This was the last game for Captain “Bud” Manion, Claflin, MacDonald, Standish, Segerstrom, Hagcstad, Jenson, Farrell, I.ubcrg, and Hunt, men who have made traditional football history at River Falls during the last three years.

New men to earn their letter this year were: "Stretch ’ Miller, rangy Shell Lake center, "Bob” Sutherland, shifty River Falls forward, and "Johnny” Schlicht, clever Marshfield guard. Other members of the squad who deserve special mention for their consistent playing are: Alfonse, a reserve guard, Anderson, a rangy center, and I.arson and Wile, speedy forwards. The Red and White basketeers played several games with mid western colleges to condition themselves for the coming season. On their western trip they played such schools as Carle-ton, Macalcstcr, St. Thomas, and the University of Minnesota. River Falls displayed real basketball ability when they forced the highly heralded St. Olaf cagers to play two overtime periods before they could sink the winning basket. CAPTAIN MANION By Coach Klaxdrud “Nor” was the outstanding player on the defense, and was always given the tough assignment in every game. He was a good floor man, had a keen eye for the basket, and possessed a fighting spirit that would never say quit. He led Ids teammates in true River Falls style and much of the success of the championship season was the. result of “Nor’s” playing. At center or forward, he could he relied upon to check the attack of Ids opponents. He is going to he a hard man to replaee next year, and we shall always remember Ids part in the championship light.

Superior then handed the Red and White quintet their only conference defeat when they caged a lucky shot from the center of the floor In the last minute of play to give them a 28-30 victory. The La Crosse anil Kau Claire cagcrs again tasted defeat at the hands of Coach Klandrud’s lighting live after hard fought battles. In the last game of the season Superior’s championship aspirations received a rude jolt when “Bud” Manion sank the most sensational one hand shot ever seen at River Falls from the corner of the gym to win the final game and the state championship. The 1929 basketball season is one of the most successful that any River Falls athletic team has ever enjoyed. The four veterans, Hunt, "Nor" Manion, Segerstrom, and "Bud” Manion, climaxed their eventful athletic careers by winning their second state championship for River Falls in their three years of athletic competition. “BILL” HUNT ‘•Bill’’ Hunt was the highest scorer on the team for the last three years. During both 1928 and 1929, besides being one of the highest scorers in the conference, he was selected ns all-state forward. He possessed unusual skill at close range shooting, and his height made him feared on rebound shots. His deceptive southpaw dribbling often enabled him to slip by opposing guards for In-shots. Besides being the main cog in the Falls offense “Bill” was a clever defensive plnyer; seldom did he leave his man uncovered. It was his clever floor work and cool consistent playing that every opposing defense was coached to meet.

The game was a see-saw affair, which was hard fought and exciting throughout. Showing much improvement over pre-season games, the Red and White cagcrs outplayed the I.a Crosse team in all departments of the game. However, their failure to sink short shots kept the game exciting. The home boys were trailing 9-10 at the half, hut the sharp-shooting of Rill Hunt in the last period gave Klandrud’s warriors a lead which they never relinquished. Throughout the game it was the fine guarding of Captain Manion and Segerstrom that held the La Crosse offense in check despite their threatening rallies. Sutherland and Schlicht, new Falls hoop artists, played a good defensive game and showed splendid team work. RIVER FALLS 36, EAU CLAIRE 33 IN the second conference game of the season Emu Claire proved a decided surprise when they forced the Red and White hasketeers to travel at top speed to cap a thrilling 36-33 victory. Although the Falls cagcrs were rather disorganized in their floor work, they showed the old traditional Red and White spirit when they rallied in the crucial moments to win the game. It was the uncanny basket shooting of “Sccg” and “Bill” as well as the stellar defensive playing of “Nor" and "Johnny” that stopped Eau Claire. "Stretch” Miller made his debut to the Falls fans in this game and gave promise of developing into a sensational pivot (man.

The Stoutonians started very cautiously with a slow breaking offense. However, it was not long before the Red and White hoop artists began to swish the ball through the rim from all corners of the gym with clock-like regularity. Miller and Hunt were the big siege guns in the Falls attack, breaking through the Stout defense for a total of twenty-four points. Stout made only two field goals during the game. These came during the last five minutes of play when Conch Klandrud sent his second team into the fray. The feature of the game was the iron-clod defense displayed by the Falls quintet. Their lightning fast team work completely baffled the Stout team. RIVER FALLS 33, STOUT 24 A 33-24 victory over Stout gave the cardinal cagcrs their fourth conference victory of the seuson. To even the score after Stout took a momentary lead on long shots, Segerstrom and Captain Manion dropped the ball through the rim for three field gonls. At this stage of the game “Bill” Hunt, the big Bertha in the Red and White attack, went on a scoring spree, making a total of twenty points. The Falls held a 16-12 lead at the half, which was increased by the infallible sharp-shooting of Hunt during the second half. In spite of being rough the game was fast and exciting throughout. During the closing period the Red and White were satisfied to hold their lead and play a safe game. The guarding of Schlicht and "Bud” Manion was the bright spot of the defensive play of Klandrud’s cagcrs. When the season opened “Johnny" was placed at defensive guard, where k e did much to keep the score of the opposition tow.

The game started with fast playing by each team, and it was not long before the Red and White ran up a 10-4 score. Although Hunt was heavily guarded in this game, he left his shadow behind him often enough to lead his team-mates in scoring as well as playing an outstanding floor game.

The cooperation of Conch Klandrud and the athletic council has given impetus to the expansion of such forms of school athletics. This year the freshmen, led by Captain Krueger, Hammer and Kcilholtx guards, Anderson, center, and Weishapple, I.arson, and Scharlnn, forwards, defeated the sophomores 18-13. The second year team was composed of Bartosh and Captain AJ-fonse. guards, Turner, center, and l.arson and Shields, forwards. For the losers Captain Alfonso played a fine defensive game, while Shields kept the score dose with four ringers from the field. With the score tied, Larson and Scharlau sank the two baskets that gave the frosh their victory. The two teams played a high class brand of basketball, and many of the players will be of much value to Coach Klandrud’s squad next year. The second game of the meet was won by the seniors, Captain Case leading his men to a 23-16 victory over the junior five. The senior team included such veterans as Case, center; Ulrich, I.andis. and Mullendorc, forwards; and Brooks and Pruclia, guards. Landis and Case were varsity men on the rails 1928 team, and their cool, steady playing gave the seniors a well versed team. "Rudy” Pru-cha and Clifford Brooks were two dependable guards that could be relied upon to smother opposing plays. The third year team was guided by Captain “Winkle" Clafiin. Norman Kahl and John MacDonald held the forward berths, while Max Klimper and "Bong" I.ubcrg formed the defensive bulwarks for the junior squad. Although the third year team fought desperately to overcome their opponents lead, the superior team work of the seniors held off threatening rallies. When Captain Krueger sank a long shot in the last seconds of the game, (the frosh annexed the class championship by winning a 18-20 game from the upper classmen. During the first half of the game the “hawk-eyed” shooting of Case enabled the seniors to run up a commanding lead. However, l.arson and .Scharlau rallied the frosh at the start of the second half, their two field goals ticing the score. Anderson kept the frosh in the running, after the seniors snnk a short shot, bv making two gift shots good.

One Hundred Twenty-FireWILLIAMS THOMAS TENNIS WANDRKV VUCHETICH TENNIS is the outstanding minor sport at the River Falls State Touchers College. After weeks of preliminary practice the season culminates in a singles and doubles tournament in which both faculty and student players compete. During the last two years interest in the sport has increased to such an extent that both spring and fall tournaments arc held. After Professor Williams and George Thomas had fought their way through a field of sixteen entries, the final round of the 1928 season was postponed due to bad weather. They were, however, given stiff competition from such veteran players as Fred Wandrcy, Frank Vuchetich, Professor May, Professor Prucha, and Marshall Norscng. In the upper bracket the veteran, Fred Wandrey, was vanquished by George Thomas 2-1. The match was tensely fought, nearly every game going to deuce. Wandrey played a cool, heady game. He possesses a fast, cutting service that he can place almost anywhere in the court with either a backhand or a forehand stroke. Thomas was a resourceful player, whose “never say die” spirit pulled many games out of the fire. His hard driving, slashing court game, combined with his speed and ability to return any volley, made him a hard player to beat. Professor Williams conquered Frank Vuchetich in straight sets to enter the finals from the lower bracket. Prof, was a tall rangy player. At serving his lightening fast service was unrcturnablc, and when it came to volleying he had no equal at the net. Vuchetich relied chiefly on his cannon-ball service. His ease in covering all corners of the court, and his ability to return hard baseline smashes were all in his favor. Other disciples of Bill Tilden were Professor May, Professor Prucha, and Marshall Xorseng. They all played a good, consistent brand of tennis, and could be relied upon to give anyone a close battle. The 1928 fall tournament was the closest and most thrilling ever held on the local courts. The sixteen contestants played the game for sheer love of it rather than any hope of reward. Plans for the 1929 spring tournament arc already under way. The courts have been worked into excellent condition and indications are that entries in both the couples and singles matches will exceed that of past seasons. Prospects arc also bright of sending a River Falls tennis team to the state tournament held at Madison this June. One Hundred Twenty-SixHAMMKIt BARTOSH LUND BEERS SWIMMING WITH the completion of the new 60 by 20 pool, swimming at River Rolls has gained considerable prominence as a minor sport. Many Ralls seals have received valuable aquatic training in the pool where a combination of crawling, choking, sputtering, and swimming is in progress all at the same time. An innovation in this year’s swimming program was the class meet between the freshmen, sophomores and juniors. The events were very closely contested, being won by the sophomores by a 12-30 score. Hammer, Lund, Bartosh, Klimper, and Beers were the outstanding swimmers in the meet. They carried the brunt of their class events and came through with several lirsts. Plans are under way for expansion of the swimming program at River Ralls. Next year it is hoped that tank meets can be scheduled with neighboring schools. In the forty yard free style Lund won first place for the second year class when he swam the distance in the record-breaking time of 26% seconds. He was closely followed by Klimper who copped second place for the juniors. Crowell won third place for the freshmen. “Bucky” Bartosh gave the second year class first in the forty yard breast stroke when he beat Thomas and Kreuger who won second and third respectively for the frosh. When “Johnny” Hammer swam the twenty yard back stroke in thirteen seconds the first year class copped first place. Alfonsc who won second for the sophomores was closely followed by Kreuger who ranked third for the frosh. The sophomores led the field in the eighty yard free style when Bartosh defeated Hill and Goodwin, freshmen, who gave him a close race. Displaying true diving form, Lund copped first for the sophomores. Kreuger and Schlicht kept the freshmen in the running by winning second and third place. Hammer plunged through the pool to give the frosh first in the plunge. Beers and Lotz gave the sophomores second and third in this event. First place in the eighty yard relay went to the first year class, Schlicht, Sutherland, Krueger, and Hammer carrying off the colors for the class of ’31. However, in the 160 yard relay the sophomores turned the tables on the frosh. Beers, Bartosh, Lund, and Lotz furnished the punch that enabled the sophomores to win tlie event and score a close tank victory over the freshmen. One Hundred Twenty-SevenBack Bnw—McLamoUin. Alton .

Captain Claflin, Knerr, Landis, "Bud' Manion, Schnur, Nyht, and King forming the nucleus for the 1928 baseball nine at River Falls. The Red and White diamond stars were handicapped by poor weather throughout the season, and as a result they were unable to secure the fielding and batting practice needed to put them in first class condition for the coming year. However, under the able coaching of Mr. Dicbold the home boys were playing high class ball by the time the sea son closed. Led by Captain "Winkle" Claflin, the Falls mound staff was of high class calibre. "Winkie” was the possessor of a lightning-fast ball and a sharp breaking curve. "Lefty" Case was the portsidcr of tile squad, who had a world of stuff and a tantalising change of pace. The third pitcher on the staff was Clarence Nyht, a dependable right hander, who worked as a relief pitcher. Behind tile bat Norman Kahl, a high class receiver, completed tile Red and White battery. There were six infielders on the team. “Vic” Knerr and Clayton Peterson held down the initial sack in veteran style. Coach Diebold’s keystone combination was the class of the infield. Landis at second base and "Bud" Manion at short were smooth working fielders who were all over the infield, smothering hard hit liners. John MacDonald played the hot corner in stellar style, his strong whip cutting off many legitimate base hits. The utility fielder was Schnur who could play any infield post, and do a good job of it. The hard-hitting Alfonse played right field while I.arson, the slugger dc luxe of the team, patrolled the left garden. In center field was the brilliant fielder, “Bill" Biss, who was all over the field snaring flys. Mullcndorc and Paulson were other outfielders of tried ability. Although the lack of practice prevented the Falls attack from functioning in a smooth manner at the start of the season, they showed great promise as the season advanced. As a lead-off hitter "Bud" Manion was sure to get on base. When runners were parked on the bases, Larson, Alfonse, and Claflin could be relied upon to furnish the scoring punch. Games were played with Carlcton. St. Olaf, Macalestcr, St. Johns, and the Minnesota Prison team. One Hundred TwentyNiiiht■ Frances Bonnby Winner of the W. A.

Teams in volleyball and basketball were organised during the winter term. A tournament was held for each sport. In the spring the girls participated in kitllienlmll, archery, tennis, and track meets. Miss Curran introduced field hockey ns the major fall sport. The organisation promoted pep at mass meetings by stunts. The float at the Homecoming parade was placed second. On Victory Day the girls readily responded to a last minute call to help give the program. Besides working for points to get their sweaters the girls joined in a campaign to sell tickets for a benefit minstrel, the proceeds to go toward buying sweaters for the girls and men. In addition to the athletic activities, the girls enjoy many social functions. As a climax the girls spent a week-end at Camp St. Croix.

Or until, Kemlev FIELD HOCKEY FIELD hockey, the new sport of the Women’s Athletic Association, was introduced this year by the director of physical education, Miss Curran. The school and the Women’s Athletic Association furnished the equipment of hockey sticks, balls, and shin and knee guards. In calling the girls out Miss Curran stated that, as none had any former experience in the game, all had an equal chance. Girls who did not belong to the organization were invited to try out for this. too. A large number of girls responded to the call. Practices were held every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon during the season. For a few weeks there was a noticeable number of girls limping and complaining of skinned knees and sore ankles, but the athletes soon learned to master the sticks. Two teams were organized, the Blue Streaks with Emma Remley as captain, and the Red Flashes with Lillian Wood as captain. A tournament was held and the Blue Streaks became the champions. At the close of the season the W. A. A. gave a banquet in honor of the champions. This banquet was held in the College Cafeteria and about fifty members of the organization attended. Adaline Garlcy, a member of the winning team, acted as toastmistress. Several speeches were given. Miss Curran gave a short talk on the fundamentals of the game. She commented on the enthusiasm with which the sport was received. According to general opinion field hockey promises to be one of the permanent major sports. After the tournament a varsity team was chosen, composed of Marion Cudd, Adaline Garley, Dorothy Grorud, Maurita Grorud, Ruth Hall, Fern Hanson, Emma Remley, Florence Schwcllcnbach, Anastasia Whalen, and Lillian Woods. These girls were chosen because they were best qualified for the positions they played, and received one hundred points in W. A. A. credit. Other players received fifty points. So much interest was shown in field hockey that the organization is contemplating introducing ice-hockey soon.

It was started later in the season than usual, because of the new fall sport, hockey. Practices were started in October and extended through December. They were held every Tuesday at four o’clock. Ellen Magnuson was elected head of volleyball. Teams were organized after a few weeks of practice, and because of the large number of freshmen who were Out for volleyball, two teams were organized. There was only one upper class team. Freshman Team I, consisting of Itubv Howe, Beatrice Forsyth, Gladys Bengstrom, Lois Thorcson, Ada Hanson, Jane Simonson, Elizabeth Mills, and Bernice Sutherland, chose Marion Cudd for their captain. Phyllis Miller was chosen captain of Freshman Team II, which consisted of Olga Seitz, Ruth Hall, Evelyn Urness, Alice Trumboucr, Mildred Howe, Edith Peterson, Clarice Olsen, and Hazel I.udkc. The upper class team with Frances Bonney captain was made up of the following: Victoria Xicincek, Maurita Grorud, Bernice Wennerberg, Norma Anderson. Emma Itcmlcy, Florence Schwellenbach, Norma Haunschild, Evelyn Peterson, Sylvia Berven, and Helen Lamson. The tournament was scheduled for the week preceding Christmas recess. An exciting scries of games was played. Frantic cries of “assist” echoed through the corridors of South Hall, especially during the tournament finals. The captains gave their players chalk-talks that proved that each team was out for the championship. Marion Cudd's team came through victorious. The fame of the team spread until the faculty men heard of it and challenged them to a game to be played in the North Hall gymnasium for an assembly meeting. For some unknown reason this game was never played. At the end of the season the W. A. A. gave a reception in honor of the different teams. This was held in the social room. Myrtle Mattson was the chairman of the committee to plan this reception. One Hundred Thirty-ThreeLofton, Hattkins. Remlev Cnrrtin (Coach), M.

Regular practices were held every Monday evening and Thursday afternoon during the months of January, February and March. In order to improve the brand of basketball the girls played and to reach a standard for girls equal to the standard the men of the school maintain, Miss Curran introduced regular basketball practice into her classes of physical training. Some of the upper classmen acted as assistant coaches. After several weeks of general practice, six teams were chosen, and Phyllis Miller was elected head of the sport. A tournament was arranged to decide on the best team. This tournament caused a great deal of interest and excitement. Howe and Howe, the star players from Elk Mound, were luckily placed on the same team, and they more than proved their mettle. Hawkins convinced the organisation again that she can win other battles than battles with words. In Anastasia Whalen as guard the hopes of Team III were placed. Frances Bouncy played her same dependable style of game throughout the tournament, and piled up a large number of scores. Because the teams were so equally matched, it was hard to determine to which the honors should go. It was decided to pick a varsity team which a committee was appointed to choose. They chose Helen Hawkins, Helen Lamson, and Emma Rcm-lcy guards, Mildred Howe, Ruby Howe and Myrtle Mattson, forwards. These girls are considered the best for the positions they play. After the tournament the varsity team played a game with an ex-high school team from Hudson. This was played after one of the regular W. A. A. meetings. The varsity team won by a large score, and they expressed their admiration of the clean game of ball Hudson played by taking them to the Kandy Kitchen for a feed.

BaUer THE ACQUATIC LEAGUE THK local chapter of the Acquatic League was organised in the fall of 1928. It was organized as a branch of the Women's Athletic Association of the River Falls State Teachers College, yet it has an executive body, a constitution, and a set of by-laws of its own. The purpose of the Acquatic League is to stimulate among the women students of the college a greater interest in swimming, to furnish an opportunity for a broader field of swimming to the advanced swimmers, and to aid in promoting a more genuine interest in swimming. The membership is limited to twenty women. To become a member one must first pass a rigid swimming test with a grade of seventy at least. The test includes: one fifth of a mile distant swim; a demonstration of four different types of strokes, side, breast, back, and crawl, swimming at least seventy yards for each stroke; floating face float and back float; treading water three minutes; some diving such as plunging, plain front and plain back; and speed swimming. The business meetings of the Acquatic League are held the first and third Thursdays of each month. Every Monday night the women practice in the pool under the direction of Miss Curran. During the year 1928-1929 the members worked for senior life saving certificates. They also trained for an exhibition meet. As a grand finale for the year the Acquatic League is having a canoe trip. The trip is to be from Twin Streams to Prescott. The officers for 1928-1929 have been, president, Claudia Vassau, vice-president, Florence Bolier, secretary and treasurer, Myrtle Mattson. The members are, Esther Chinnock, Marian Cudd, Colletta Bonness, Helen Bragstad, Florence Bolier, Myrtle Mattson, Bernice Sutherland, Jane Simonson, Clarice Olson, Joyce Hawkins, Claudia Vassau. and Winnie Waters.

Mr. Rexford S. Mitchell, created a vacancy in our college faculty extremely hard to fill. The students, faculty members, and townspeople feel that President Ames was exceptionally fortunate in securing Mr. Justin Williams to fill that position. Mr. Williams came to us fully prepared to assume the duties of a public speaking instructor and coach. He was a member of the debate squad at the Conway State Teachers College in Arkansas, and remained there a year after his graduation as an instructor and debate coach. The past June he received his M. A. Degree from the University of Iowa. As an instructor and as a coach Mr. Williams has gained the respect and ad miration of the student body. He has been untiring in his efforts, rigid but just in his criticisms, and helpful with his hints and suggestions. He is a man who has both an unbounded supply of knowlwedge and the ability to convey that knowledge to liis pupils. After watching his first year’s work we realize that he understands the fundamentals of debate, and has the ability to instill “carry on" in the hearts of the debators, and the sportsmanship which makes either a good loser or a good winner. Mr. Williams is a man of fine character and high ideals. Because of this we feel that his association with those with whom he has been working has been of unlimited value. The highest compliment that we can extend to him is this: Truly, he has filled the place of one we all honor and respect, Mr. Mitchell. One Hundred Tkirtp-EifktMARSHALL NORSENG By IIkxforii S. Mitchell MARSHALL NORSENG leaves River Falls in June with n record in oratory and extemporaneous speaking outstanding not only in the history of the Falls, hut in the annals of the state and interstate leagues. Never before in the state has a man won the state oratorical ond state extemporaneous speaking contests in successive years, or in any years for that matter; never before has a speaker placed in the interstate oratorical and the interstate extempore contest in successive years; never before has an extempore speaker won both the state and interstate contests by a unanimous vote of the judges;—and so we might go on piling up the "never bcforcs." Marshall graduated from the River Falls High School, where lie had made an excellent record in forensics, in 1925 and entered the college that fall. As a freshman he was chosen to represent the Falls in extempore speaking. Discussing the general topic of "The Need for a Re-Alignment of Political Parties." lie made a clean sweep of both the state contest at River Falls, and the interstate at Macomb, Illinois, by winning the unanimous vote of the judges in both cases. The next year he turned to oratory, won the state contest at Eau Claire, and placed second in the interstate at Cedar Falls, Iowa, with his oration “Our Harvest of Hate." This ended his career in oratory and extempore speaking, since he was no longer eligible in cither because of a rule which bars winners of state contests from further competition. But unlike Alexander he found new worlds to conquer, for outstanding as his record in oratory and extemporaneous speaking undoubtedly is, Marshall’s work in debate has been equally brilliant. During his four years at River Falls he has represented the school in over thirty-five debntes, has lost but one conference decision, and has been a member of two state championship teams. During his first two years, debating on affirmative trios supporting the child labor amendment and the McNarv-Haugen bill, he was a member of two undefeated stnte championship teams. During his third year, with John Davison and John Burke as colleagues, he toured the south, winning six of nine decisions in debntes with the southern universities and colleges. This year, with Wandrcy and Amundsen, lie scored a victory over Superior and was preparing to engage in his fourth state championship battle when a somewhat belated interpretation of the constitution ruled four-year men out of debate and forced River Falls to withdraw from further competitions. To further honor his outstanding record in forensics Marshall was this spring unanimously elected president of the Interstate League of State Teachers Colleges, to preside at the interstate contest at Springfield, Missouri. River Falls regrets the passing of so mighty a forensic warrior. No one has contributed more to the forensic success of River Falls than Marshall Norseng. Maiisiiali. Noiikno One Hundred Thirty-NineFRED WANDREY By Rexford S. Mitchell FRED WANDREY leaves River Falls after four years of forensic service with a record of live wins in six conference debates and a second in the state extemporaneous speaking contest. Fred, who is a graduate of the Cumberland High School, entered River Falls in 1923. He had had considerable experience in high school oratory and debate and made the Normal debate squad his first year. As a member of a negative team debating the government ownership of the coal mines against Superior that year, he lost the only conference decision of his debate career. Fred took sweet revenge, however, for in each of the other years he was a member of the team which opposed Superior in the preliminary round, and each year the judge’s vote was for River Falls. In 1925 Fred was on an affirmative team with Everett Smith and Margaret Bailey. Supporting a congressional veto of Supreme Court decisions on constitutionality, they won over Superior and advanced to the final round with Platte-ville and Oshkosh. Fred's team won from Plattcville, but the negative lost a hard battle to Oshkosh, and River Falls finished second in the state. In 1926 he was a member of a state championship team. Opposing the child labor amendment and teaming with John Davison and John Burke, he took his annual revenge on Superior in the preliminary round. The affirmative team also won its first round debate and Fred's team met Stevens Point in the final while the affirmative journeyed to Plattcville. Both teams won and River Falls became state champions. After teaching mathematics and coaching forensics in the Spoonpr High School for three years. Fred returned to River Falls in 1928. Again lie opposed Superior in the first round, this time with Marshall Norseng and Carl Amundsen as colleagues, and again Fred helped to score another River Falls victory. The other Falls team defeated F.nu Claire, and the group were about to enter the championship round when the decision of the state league before mentioned ended the debate season for the Falls. Then just to wind up his forensic career in a still greater blane of glory, Fred went down to La Crosse and won second in the state extemporaneous speaking contest. Fred Waxdrey One Hundred PartyJOHN DAVISON By Hkxi’ohd S. Mitchell WHEN John Davison graduates in June. River halls will lose one of the bulwarks of its forensic strength. For four years John has helped to withstand the verbal and oratorical onslaughts of conference and non-conference foes. Always he has fought with skill and finish, and always when the smoke of forensic battle has cleared, the colors of Itiver Falls have been flying high. Few have contributed more to the forensic success of River Falls than John Davison. He has represented us in oratory and extemporaneous speaking, he has carried our colors into more than thirty debates, he has been o member of two state championship teams, and during four years of debating has lost but one conference decision. Having made an excellent forensic record in River Falls High School, “Jack” entered the college in 1925. Representing the Falls in debate his first two years, lie completed both seasons without defeat and was a member of two successive championship teams. In his freshman year he teamed with John Hurkc and Fred Wan-drey to defeat Superior and Stevens Point in conference debates on the child labor amendment; in his sophomore year with Thomas Barry and Donald Olson ns colleagues he scored wins over both Eau Claire and Stevens Point while opposing the McNary-Haugcn bill. In his third year he was a member of the first Falls team to invade the southland. With John Burke and Marshall Norscng he participated in thirteen debates with the southern universities and colleges, winning six of nine decisions. Prior to this, while defending protection of American capital in foreign countries, he helped Marshall Norscng and Donald Olson to defeat Superior, and with them suffered at the hands of Milwaukee, his only conference defeat in four years. This year “Jack” was leader of the team opposing government development of water power resources. With Martin Abrahamscn and William Hawkins as teammates he defeated Eau Claire in the preliminary round, and like Norscng was preparing to enter his fourth state championship battle when the “four year” decision abruptly brought his forensic career to a dose. One Hundred for(i OneMarbiiai.i. Norhk.no THE SEASON THE 1929 debate season was officially opened by n call of Coach Williams for twenty-one people to form a debate squad. After a series of elimination contests, the following people were selected: Norscng, Davison, Wandrey, Amundson, Abrahamsen, Helen Hawkins, William Hawkins, I.ubcrg, Merrill, Hill, Fink, Shields, Fritz, Miller, Dittbrenner, Grimm, Vig, Bergscng, Johnson, McNamara, and Madison. These people were divided into seven teams, and practice debates were held continually for four or five weeks. Immediately after the Christmas holidays, the squad was sealed down to eight people. The affirmative team was composed of Norscng, Wandrey, and Amundson, with I.ubcrg as alternate; the negative team was composed of Davison, Hawkins, and Abrahamsen, with William Hawkins for alternate. Practice debates between the two teams were held during January, and in February interscholastic practice debates were started. Our negative met the Winona State Teachers College Team and a well informed team from St. Norbort College at DePere. The affirmative in the meantime had a practice tilt with debaters from Northland College. The conference debate season opened the fourth of March. Our affirmative defeated the strong Superior team, while the negative defeated Eau Claire. Preparations were at once started for the state championship debate, but a ruling of the Forensic Board made it necessary for LeRov I.i-berg One Hundred Forty-TwoJohn Davison Hilex Hawkins Martin Auaiiamsex River Falls to withdraw. Had our teams been allowed to participate, we feel certain that they would have emerged victorious. All six debaters were of state championship calibre, and showed careful preparation and coaching due to Mr. Williams untiring efforts. Not only was the college active in debate, but two other phases of forensic work were admirably carried on this year, namely, oratory, and extempore speaking. When the call was issued for orators five candidates responded: Carl Wolfe, Foster Mitchell, William Hawkins, Jack Davison, and Horace Merrill. At the local contest Jack Davison won first with the oration, “Manifest Destiny." In extempore speaking three people, LeRoy Luberg, Fred Wandrcy, and Horace Merrill, responded to the call issued by Mr. Williams near the close of the debating season. The topic for discussion this year was “The Kellogg Peace Pact." The contestants were given the general topic several weeks before the tryout and were given an opportunity to read all available material on the subject. The day of the contest the contestants selected some phase of the topic which was presented in a twelve minute speech. Fred Wandrey won first and Horace Merrill second. Mr. Wandrcy represented the school in the state contest at LaCrosse where he won second place. The contest was very close and the school was justly proud of Mr. Wandrcy.

King, Towers THE YEAR IN MUSIC ■ HE Music Department of the River Falls State Teachers College is comparatively new as a distinct department of the school. While the college has always had some music instruction in its curriculum, it was not until the past four or five years that it was organized on a larger scale by adding experienced instructors and new studio space. Sow it plays a most important part in campus activities, maintaining a men's glee club, girls’ glee club, quartettes, mixed chorus, band, and orchestra. The department furnishes music at all school functions, and the various groups frequently go into the outlying districts to give help in community programs. The band is in especial evidence, appearing at pep meetings and games, and doing much to stimulate a loyal enthusiastic school spirit. The department also maintains studios for the private study of voice culture and singing, piano, organ, violin, history of music, harmony, theory, and music appreciation. The members of the piano department under Miss Wharton give many recitals during the year, which furnish an opportunity for students to appear before the public. An ensemble class for advanced students is also held once a week. Miss Wharton had a piano contest this year, offering prizes to the winners. This department furnishes accompanists and soloists for school activities and for different clubs in the city. An oratorio is planned for each year. An operetta, "The (Jypsy Rover, was given in the spring by Miss Arnold, in which both college and junior high school students appeared. The director of the department, Mr. Gee re, promotes the District High School Music Contest which has grown to such proportions that it is rated as the largest gathering of high school pupils in the state. This year twenty schools entered with nearly seven hundred contestants taking part. The main purpose of the music department is to create a liking for and a knowledge of better music in the college as well as its patronizing territory. One Hundred Forty-Six H. Howe, It.

Bringing as she does a trail of springtime atmosphere with her, a celebration in her honor is a meet subject for a June day. The Pageant last Class Day, June 5, 1928, was put on by Miss Smith with the assistance of Vivian Vassau and the art department. In immitation of a Greek festival, its theme was Spring and the joy of the earth, with Persephone and Ceres playing their symbolic roles. Dawn, ns danced by a group of girls, showed • the morning of Persephone's arrival, with the misty, shadowy world gradually awakening to life. A tumbling and acrobatic dance portrayed the happiness of peasants and townspeople at the first signs of spring. A scarf dance and a sacrificial dance with Greek music and costumes carried out with an atmosphere of consecration the theme of the pageant. . The dancing was ended with an evening prayer, in Sunset. The conception and staging of a pageant of this nature with its appropriate theme added much to the beauty and impressiveness of the exercises.

It was a three-act comedy directed by Miss Schlosscr, and enthusiastically received by students, faculty, and patrons. The theme of the play was a bet made by four business men with one of their confreres, the hero, Robert Bennett, who undertook to tell nothing but the truth for twenty-four hours. Walter Pearson played the part of the hero very well. Jack Davison, Donald Olson, and Robert Smith as the implicated business men furnished strong support. Theodore Goble, ns the impetuous, not-too-orthodox bishop, gave much of the comic relief. Ilis individualistic method of gaining contributions for his church by the display of vocal strength was a clever touch that added interest. Throughout the action Vivian Vassou, Lillian Clark, and Helen Hughes played their parts well. Evelyn Sansburn, as the “poor, sweet girl” who couldn't play, and Agnes McClurg, and Agnes Neppl, ns sophisticated sirens out gold-digging, led to a string of difficulties through prevarication. All-in-all, the play was well conceived and executed. One Hundred FiftrFourSECOND CHILDHOOD A rollicking farce, “Second Childhood,” was presented by Miss Schlosser in December. The play with its absent-minded professor, its elixir of life, its several lost and misplaced babies furnished some of our stars with their best opportunity to play pure comedy. Jack Davison as Professor Kclyca surpassed all his records for effective ploying, and gave a marvelous exhibition of a frantic, befuddled man who unwittingly turns his best friend and his daughter to babies by administering his elixir of life. Gordon Page as the important General and Gordon Grimm as the slightly bewildered assistant were very good leads. Margaret Fox and Bernice Sutherland as the suspicious, doubting women of Relycn's family, Joyce Wibcrg as the vociferous neighbor, and Foster Mitchell as the dignified judge furnished strong support to the cast. The play was presented in River Falls for the benefit of the annual Poultry Show of the Department of Agriculture. It was so enthusiastically received here, tlint the Davison-Norseng company took the cast to Cumberland on November 23. One Hundred Fifty-FiveMELETEAN VAUDEVILLE THE Mclctcnn Vaudeville is an all-college entertainment presenteo annually by the stair to help defray the expenses of publishing the yearbook. This year a very high class show was presented in the college auditorium. Wednesday evening, February twentieth, under the student management of I.yle Lamphcre and LcRoy I.uberg with Miss Latta as advisor. Originality, novelty, and variety were the keynotes of the entertainment which consisted of ten acts, each introduced by I.yle I.ampherc who acted as muster of ceremonies. The program was opened by two musical numbers pluyed from the stage by the local dance orchestra, King Midas Band, composed of Hoyt Johnson, Charles Conselman, A1 Hawkinson, Arnold Kuss, Harold Segcrstrom, George Thomas and Archie Thompson. The curtains parted for the second act to show the two bold pirates, Wroe Wolfe and Gordon Page, in a series of sea ballads and clog dances. A chorus of dancing girls gave two highly enjoyed acts, “The Varsity Drag and “Roses of Yesterday.” The chorus consisted of Florence Bolier, Marianne Cudd, Vivian Elliott. Maurita Grorud', Joyce Hawkins, Ida Johnson, Stella Knutson, Clarice Olson, Jane Simonson, Elna Stone, Viola Swenson, Ariel Towers, Victoria Xiemcek, Muriel Peterson, and Winifred Waters, assisted by Bernice Sutherland and directed by Miss Curran, Claudia Vassau, and Vivian Chinnock. One Hundred Plfly-SizThe Anglo-Persians, Marshall Norseng and Thomas Runkle, floated in on their magie carpet, found George Thomas waiting for them at the piano, and entertained the audience with harmonious violin musie and novelty stunts. The second half of the program opened with a clever one-act play, “A Girl to Order.” Tile cast included Truman Glass, Archie Mueller, Foster Mitchell, Gordon Page. Don Zwicky, and Maxine Blaine. The "All Americans” with their cavalry of hobby horses and troop of musketeers provided a snappy football act that amused the entire audience. The line-up included Milton Berlin. Clifford Brooks. Wendell Claflin, Raphael Farrell, Lawrence Larson, John MacDonald, Earl McLaughlin, and Kenneth Urquhart. The "All Americans” were coached by T.cltov I.uberg. One of the most clever ncis in the program was the one wherein “The Radio Entertainers” showed exactly what goes on in a radio broadcasting station. Jack Davison was the over-enthusiatic announcer. Archie Mueller, the janitor, broadcasted as Madam Jeritza, the famous colorature soprano. The twelve piece orchestra in tuxedos consisted of Hoyt Johnson, Charles Conselman, and George Thomas in their shirt sleeves. A spectacular and fitting close was the grand finale. A double quartet, consisting of Ruth King, Marcella Oltman, Bernice Sutherland, Claudia Vassau, Gordon Grimm, lx-Roy I.uberg, Ronald McNamara, and Benjamin West, sang groups of college songs, followed by the entire cast in the new college song, "Sons of River Falls.” One Hundred FiflvSevOi ASSEMBLY DRAMATIC PRODUCTIONS THIS year much work in dramatics has been done, and some of the worth-while efforts have been given in assembly. The first dramatic presentation was a group of pantomimes given by members of all classes who wished to try out for the play "Second Childhood.” All of these showed much work, and several were miniature masterpieces. A pantomime called "Little Red Riding Hood" won first place. Two religious pageants were given by the Christian Organisations, at Christmas and Easter. At Christmas an effect of a medieval cathedral service was gained by an organ prelude and a call to worship. Tableaux of the Christmas scenes were beautifully presented. They were artistically perfect in line, and color harmony. The Easter pageant showed in a symbolic way the dying out and the re-lighting of the sacred altar-fires. The “Knave of Hearts,” a one-act play by Louise Saunders, was given in assembly by the College Masquers. It is a delightfully whimsical satire on pomposity and elaborate etiquette. The players took their parts well, and the whole audience entered into the spirit of the play. One Hundred fifty EightPUBLICATIONSTHE MELETEAN I.tub Lamphbbb THIS Melctcan is the eighteenth publication of the yearbook of our college. Each year it has been the ambition of the staff to have the Mclctcan grow in size and quality in proportion to the growth and development of the school. Their accomplishments have gone hand in hand. Last year the school became a degree granting teachers college, and the 1928 Mclctcan in the annual ranking of yearbooks by the National Scholastic Press Association was given honor rating in the first class among schools of its size in the university and college section. After such an accomplishment the start’ of 1929 feel the undertaking of the publication of this book a real responsibility. When we came to the choice of a theme around which to build our book, we decided that, since we arc a school specializing in agriculture, we could find no more appropriate subject than that in its relation to the work of our school, and no more worthy object of our dedication than our own Department of Agriculture, faculty and students. So we have endeavored to present this theme in the art work and general make-up of the book. Maud A. I.atta One Hundred SixtyNINETEEN TWENTY NINE Cami. Amundson THE introductory section, the class panels, and the page designs arc the work of John Dzubay. The silhouettes were drawn by Beatrice Buchhols. Beatrice also reproduced the emblem of the Agrifallian Society for the divisional pages. We are greatly indebted to Mr. Stratton for the cartoons. Martin Abra-hamsen has had charge of the athletic section and his interesting and vivid accounts of athletic events give that part of the book unusual value. Mildred Thomson and Elaine Forsyth planned and compiled the pages of snapshots, picturing the events of the year. Other snapshot artists are Clifford Brooks and Herman Hagcstad. Esther Bailey has managed the editing of the section devoted to organisations, and Vivian Cliinnock, Foster Mitchell, and Harold Sombkc have had charge of the classes. The business staff, Leroy Lubcrg, Carl Amundson, and George White have made possible the publication of the book. The most credit for whatever success we may have attained in building n book that pleases you and that is worthy of the school should go to Miss Latta, our advisor. She has faithfully and capably guided the plans and work of the book that it might be a success. It is with the deepest appreciation of her efforts that' we present this, the 1929 Meletcan, to the students and faculty of our school. —The Editor.

King, Blain, Lalshatc, Kahl, Olson STAFF members of the Student Voice, weekly publication of the college, gain valuable experience in promoting school enterprises. Practical experience in the business and editorial problems of publishing is another worthwhile reward. Chief among the benefits of being a staff member, however, is the discipline gained from working with a purpose: the attempt to provide an organ suited to the expression of student affairs and opinion; to provide information—all the news about the college; to promote school spirit and to perpetuate traditions; to stand for scholarship as well as good sportsmanship; to maintain the standards of good journalism; to provide a permanent record of school activities; and to promote goodwill and cooperation between students, faculty, regents, and the public. Then there arc other rewards. A student is proud to sec his name over a well written article. There is a satisfaction in having wit, humor, criticism, editorial comment, or any other form of writing published. The college, too, contributes by offering extra-curricula credit in English for consistent work. Superior work is rewarded by the winning of a special Student Voice matrix. The Voice has a circulation of over 700 copies, 200 of which go to high schools and exchanges. As a member of the National Scholastic Press Association the paper has the value of the organisation’s grading and rating. It ranks first class. In order that the paper may continue to improve its standards, staff members must be picked from students who rank high in scholarship and school spirit.

Soon after the members of the committee were chosen, they met and elected the officers who served throughout the year. The biggest social function of the year, which the social committee labored to make a success, was the Homecoming Ball. Nor were their efforts in vuin, for a record breaking crowd of old grads and students were present at the dance. Besides this one special dance, the Social Committee has given a matinee dance almost every week. At each matinee dance one hour was set aside for the teaching of beginners to dance. It was through the efforts of the Committee that the students had the opportunity of enjoying several readings, given before the general assembly, by Mr. John Seaman Gams of the McPhail School of Music. The Committee for several winters has provided the school with a skating rink on the old athletic Held. Again this year action was taken to put the rink in shape, but lock of interest among the students, and the weather prohibited the development of the project. It is the hope of the Student Social Committee to help finance and in this way make possible the bringing of the Mixed Chorus from the University of Minnesota to our campus sometime in May ns a special entertainment for the students. Throughout the year the Committee has endeavored to carry out in the line of social functions and activities the wishes and sentiment of the group they represent —the student body.

Several weeks were spent in interesting the freshmen girls through various means, such as Big Sister Movements, a tea for all freshmen, and meetings devoted to the theme of friendship. The new members were definitely taken in at a Candlelight Service. One hundred girls joined the organization, and took the pledge—“To lead a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God.” Two of the new cabinet members had attended the Geneva Conference—Anna May Void and Mildred Thomson. In order to be better prepared for the year's work the cabinet attended a Cabinet Training Course at Stout College in Mcnoinonie. Miss Julia Mae Hamilton, traveling secretary for this district, visited River Falls following the meeting at Mcnomonic. As a new feature of the work the cabinet decided to spend part of their time in the study of some good book. Lewis Browne's, “This Believing World,” was selected. Mrs. Justin Williams became the discussion leader. The only time available for most of the busy cabinet members was Thursday afternoon from four thirty until six thirty. Thursday Cabinet Suppers thus became an outstanding feature of the program. One Hundred 8lxtu-EightDuring the first part of the year many of the programs were for freshmen. Several joint meetings with the Y. M. C. A. resulted in a better understanding of the closely related aims. Community relations and world fellowship were discussed, and lecturers from Minneapolis discussed social service work. The second part of the work was devoted to a close study of personality. Beginning with exterior things like etiquette, clothes, leading into discussions of books, men and women relations, and ending with topics like “Finding Myself,” the series was enjoyed by most of the girls of the school. Two .assembly programs put on at Christmas and Easter with the help of the Y. M. C. A. were very appropriate and impressive. The financial program of the Association has been one of expansion. To begin with, fifty dollars was pledged to the National Council, part to be for the World Student Christian Federation, and part for work at home. The various social obligations, plus the sum needed for Geneva delegates, brought the total budget to about two hundred dollars. To begin to raise the necessary amount, the pledges of individual members were called for. Various committees worked constantly at candy and sandwich sales. The second annual Dime Day was a big success. At the end of the year every obligation was fulfilled. Socially, the highlight of the program was the Party of the Nations, a national masquerade held early in the year. The Christmas party for the Social Boom was sponsored by the Y. W. C. A. Because of its varied activities and program, the Y. W. C. A. appeals to most of the girls of the campus and every year more members take an active port in some phase of the work. It is hoped that each year its sphere of influence may widen until in the end it helps every girl. One Hundred Sixty-SineAnderson, Kahl, Klein, V. Kelson, McIntyre, Ticeit, Yahnke, C.

The organization has promoted a worthwhile program, ever alert to changes in modern thought, endeavoring at all times to make the “Y” an organization of service to the student body right here at River Falls. The weekly meetings have continued to emphasis the spiritual values of life. Joint devotional meetings with the Y. W. C. A. and X. C. A. have been sponsored on special occasions along with several assembly programs and pageants. Discussion groups and open forums have been a regular and valuable part of the yearly schedule. To appreciate the viewpoints of others, a number of foreign students from other colleges and universities were secured to present their side of current topics that concern modern youth. The "Y” has endeavored to foster at River Falls the best possible faculty and student relationships. Faculty and students have rubbed elbows at all the 'Y" social functions; and for the first time, a faculty-student banquet was given, which proved decidedly successful. In a social wav the "YM has taken a bigger part on the campus than ever before. The opening all-school mixer, the annual stag party, the faculty-student banquet, and the joint picnic with the Y. W. C. A. and N. C. A. provided good, wholesome recreation. Large and influential delegations have been sent to all district meetings and conferences throughout the year. James P. Jacobson One Hundred 8eeentpOneTHE NEWMAN CLUB THE Newman Club is an organization of Catholic students who attend this school. The purpose of the organization is to promote social activities and the spirit of good fellowship among its members and with members of outside organizations. In previous years this organization was known as the Normal Catholic association. Due to the fact that this school is no longer a normal school hut a teachers college, the name of the organization has been changed to the Newman Club. The Newman Club is organized in a great many non-sectarian colleges throughout the United States. We have not been affiliated with the national organization, but arc planning to do so as soon as possible. We have sixty-six active members in our organization. Our officers for this vear have been: presidents, George White and Erwin Finley, vice-presidents, Margaret McAndrew and Victoria Nicmcek, secretaries and treasurers, Itochclle Farrell and Ailcin Fitzgerald. The regular meetings are held every Tuesday evening at eight o'clock. Some of the outside speakers have been Mr. Junkman, Mr. John Davison, Mr. Marshal Norseng, Mr. Malott, Mr. May, Mr. Prucha, Father Fass-bender, Mr. Hunt, and Miss Thomas. Mr. Junkman has given us talks on various places of interest which lie has visited. Geobce Wurrt Eawix Fislkv One Hundred Sevent'hTuo Christiaan, Larson, Hanion. FarreU. JlaeDonald. Fink.

Marshal Xorscng spoke on the sidelights of the Smith-Hoover campaign'. Mr. Malott gave a very instructive talk on the immortality of our race. Mr. Hunt talked on loyalty to organizations. He gave us many new ideas on the subject. Miss Thomas took us with her, in imagination, to see the beauties of Yellowstone National Park. Miss Kelley and Mr. Mac Namara arc two of the excellent soloists who have entertained us. We must not forget our humorist, "Eddy” Phalcn, who was always willing to entertain us. One of the outstanding social events that the Newman Club sponsored during the school year was a mixer at the beginning of the first term. It was held to enable our new members to get acquainted. Another outstanding event was a Christmas party given by Father Fassbcndcr in the basement of St. Bridget's church. We believe it is through the hearty cooperation of our advisor, Mr. Junkman, and the active members of the association that this organization has been a success. Any Catholic students contemplating attendance at the River Falls State Teachers Colleges in the future will receive a warm welcome by the Newman Club. P.

Such was the feeling of the members of the oldest men’s organization in the Teachers College in regard to the meetings which were held every other Thursday during the school year. With an active membership that exceeded any of previous years, according to Professor A. N. Johnson, faculty advisor of the Agrifallian Literary Society, the club has shown unusual progress throughout the year, and its members have become innoculated with a greater spirit of loyalty and love for the organization than has ever before been evident. The officers are chosen on their merit as good, active, livewire Agrifallians, and are elected twice a year. For the first term’s staff Herbert Chapman was president, Martin Abrahamsen, vice president, Jesse Smith, secretary, and Gaylord Mullcndorc, treasurer. The second term, Martin Abrahamsen was chosen president, Gaylord Mullcndorc, vice president, Allan Weber, secretary, and Edwin Howard, treasurer. These men are in no small degree responsible for the successful year the society has enjoyed. Marti Abrahamses Herbert Chapman One Hundred Setentp-PourMr. Johnson (Advisor), Kahl. Abrahamsen, J.

Lamphere One of the outstanding steps taken by the club this year was the decision inode by the organization that a standard design for rings and pins, representative of the Agrifoilian Society, should be selected. By virtue of this decision the club members now present for inspection a ring . or pin which tells to everyone, both in the school and those who have graduated and arc now out in the teaching field, that the wearer is a loyal member of the Society. An arrangement of programs of a somewhat novel nature was planned by the members of the teaching staff in the agricultural department. By means of this system committees composed entirely of students with an upperclassman as chairman were selected and dated to stage a program at one of the regular meetings of the club. Outside of a little advice from the instructors of the department, the programs were arranged entirely by the students. Under this system the student was compelled to learn how to urrange a program and how to stage one. He received some valuable training in public speaking and parliamentary law. Knowledge in regard to subjects which are closely related to agriculture, but are lightly touched upon in the class room was procured, so that the student graduating from the college might have an education that was broad enough and full enough to fit him for the hardest teaching work offered to a college graduate, that of a teacher in the Smith-Hughes schools of the state and country at large. Arthur N. Johnsos One Hundred Seventy-FiveTHE announcement that River Falls State Teachers College had been accepted by the State Board of Vocational Agricultural, and would probably be accepted by the National Board as well, as one of the colleges from which students graduating from a four year agricultural course would be eligible to teach in the Smith-Hughes schools was enthusiastically received by members of Agrifallian. This announcement, coming from Mr. May, Head of the Agricultural Department, showed the agricultural student tlip bettered financial prospects which awaited him upon his graduation. Field Day, the big event of the College year to the agricultural students, was staged with unusual success last spring. A crowd of parents and high school students were the guests of the department, ns the Patron's Day celebration was on the same dntc. North Hall Gymnasium was filled with exhibits and demonstration booths. Every man in the Department had some part in the day’s program. The demonstrations given were adjudged by the Stutc Superintendent of Vocational Agriculture to be excellent. The largest number of entries in the Field Day livestock judging contest for high school teams was chalked up tills year. One Hundred 8eventtf-8lxA SUCCESSFUL poultry show was also staged in the gymnasium last winter by the Society. Poultry from miles around was brought to the show to be adjudged. In addition to the poultry judging, speeches by poultry authorities were given. One of the high lights of the year was the second annual Agrifallian-Rural Life party. As a return for the party given to the Agrifallian the year previous by the Rural Life Club, the men of the Agrifallian gave a party in honor of the Rural Life Club. An old time orchestra was procured for the dancing. Cards and other games were enjoyed by those present, following which refreshments were served. In the organisation basketball tournament held during the winter the Agrifallian quint tied for first honors, only to lose them in the play-off. Professor A. N. Johnson said that although the year had brought no phenomenal events to light, the Agrifallian had unusually well fulfilled the purpose for which it was organized.

GO. P. Iwis continued to merit its title in the very best way possible this • year as well as previous years. With the opening of school we saw at once the many difficulties we had to face. Our last year’s officers had become alumnae, leaving the rest of us, comparatively few in number, to start the work of the club and carry it throughout the year. We were without an advisor, since Miss Alberta Grccnc was on leave of absence for the year. Our rather obsolete constitution bad to be revised. These tasks seemed insurmountable. With the traditional good spirit of G. O. P., all difficulties were soon overcome. Officers were elected to serve until May. One of our best loved teachers. Miss Haddow, consented to be our advisor. Our appreciation of her work in this capacity can hardly be measured. Our first meetings were given over almost entirely to the writing of our new constitution. This was difficult to accomplish, but we now feel as though we have something to guide us in our work. At the beginning of the year, we decided to study the three arts, music, art, and literature. All of our programs have centered about these. In these Thursday night meetings we have taken up for example, negro art, literature, and music.

We have also lived up to our name in a social way. In September, members of G. O. P. assisted at the opening of the new social room, by serving at a tea given for the women of the college. We gave a joint ten with the Masquers Society for all girls interested in drama, art, music, and literature. All of the girls were then asked to contribute to the program. From these girls, the two societies selected their new members. G. O. P. initiated twenty-two of these girls in the first part of January. This initiation, truly a riotous affair, will never be forgotten by the girls. G. O. P. girls helped make the 1928 Homecoming go over big by giving a clever stunt showing the effects of our River Falls Team on the team of Milwaukee. We did so well in this stunt, that we were appointed to take charge of all mass meetings. As our purpose is to boost everything, this new duty was accomplished with the usual good spirit. Our Homecoming dinner for alumnae G. O. P. sisters was given at the Gladstone Hotel. At Christmas, a tea was given at which the girls of the school gave a set of dishes to the social room. February eighth was the date for one of the social high lights of the year, the G. O. P. Formal. This was well attended and everyone reported a fine time. i •tk - ' % i 1 p— r 1 I..

Meetings are held on alternate Thursdays. At these meetings interesting programs are given, consisting of debates and speeches, humorous and serious, all of which are on subjects of vital interest to students of the school. A traditional feature of the organisation is the initiation of new members. After the old members have gone through the preliminaries of voting upon those applying for admission to the society as to their eligibility, plans for initiation are made. Each new member is required to give a “soapbox” oration of not less than five minutes without notes. This speech must be given to a large crowd in the corridor. Secret initiations arc also held. The election of officers is the next bomb exploded by the group to arouse enthusiasm. Political parties are organised with the school's most fluent speakers a campaign managers, and with the society’s least sensitive members as candidates.

This year the officers chosen were: presidents, John D .uhay and Donald Zwieky, vice-presidents, Martin Abrnhnmsen and Horace Merrill, secretaries, Peter Vig and Gordon Grimm, treasurers, Arno Dittbrenner and William Hawkins. Besides promoting mass meetings, distributing booster badges, and entertaining the visiting high school students who take part in the District Oratorical Contest held at River Falls, Lincolnian members this year promoted the production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Csesar,” which was presented by the Stratford Players.

At the end of their term their places were taken by twelve or fourteen more, who went hesitatingly and returned the same way. We were supervised by the critic at the school and by Miss Gnustnd, who put in her appearance almost every day, rain or shine, roads or no roads; sometimes shakingly welcomed, but as her visits meant help in our work we soon appreciated her coining. us in preparing for rural teaching.

Our guests were: Miss Kibbe of the State Department, who gave a very interesting tulk, Superintendent Godcll and his supervisors—Misses Nichols. Fleming and Garley. We owe much of the success of the banquet to Lillian Woods, who had, of course, the willing assistance of all. During the last half of the year the vice president, Ivon Greene, was never given the chance to act, ns Lillian Woods, the president, was always on duty. Clarice Anderson was elected to carry on Joe’s work and succeeded in getting in our dues, so that we were the first to pay our Melctean bill. Mildred Peterson was elected secretary. At our Valentine party all dignity, reserve, and worries were thrown to the winds. Perhaps those in costume enjoyed it the most, but we doubt it. The spirit and cooperation of all our members made this as well as all our activities n success. Wc expect to carry our aim of this year with us next year.

On October 11, 1028, six members of the Aurelia Society met with Miss Schlosser and decided to create a dramatic club. Helen Mooney, as acting president, set about building up the membership at once. In order to become a member of the Masquers one must maintain a “C” average in every subject, and show dramatic ability in the try-outs. Since the beginning of the year three of these try-outs have been held, and the membership has increased to forty. The name of the new club was introduced to the school by a float at the Homecoming parade. Shortly afterwards a group of prospective pledges were entertained at a tea, with Masquers and the G. O. P. as hostesses. The first production was Louise Saunders’ “Knave of Hearts,” a picturesque one-act play. The play was repeated four times to enthusiastic audiences.

HV f, Cudd, Forsyth Blaine, Burkholder, Mitchell, Grimm, Davison, Sutherland, Fox, Zorn At the annual Mclctcan Vaudeville the organization was represented by a one-net farce, “A Girl to Order ’ under the leadership of Mildred Randall. The strong east was made up of Truman Glass, Foster Mitchell, Don Zwicky, Archie Mueller, and Maxine lllain. To show that their tastes were not purely dramatic the members of the Masquers made and sold cookies at the Superior basketball game. For days before, their war cry was Eat Superior, and when they came out with Superior Cookies every patriotic member of the student body did his best to help. The last undertaking of the year was a series of five one-act plays put on under student direction. The directors were Jack Davison, Margaret Fox, Matilda Zorn, Mildred Randall, and Norma Maunschild. The play directed by Mildred Randall was awarded first place, and a picnic was given to the successful cast. With the proceeds of the various plays, it was decided to buy two much-needed baby spot lights for our stage, and to begin buying new stage furniture. The first year of the College Masquers has been a real success. It has become one of the recognized school societies. Under Miss Schlosser’s guidance and with the help of the new members, it is hoped that all the future years may be quite as successful. Nklue 1..

The candidates were nominated by classes and organizations, votes cost one cent a ballot, and the returns from the election were used to sponsor forensics. Evelyn Rhiel was chosen the most beautiful girl in school; Wendell Claflin, the best all-round athlete; Ruth King, the best student; Vivian Elliot, the cutest girl; Arnold Larson, the most handsome man. To add even more interest to the contest, the debate squad offered, as a recognition of their merit, to publish the pictures of the winners of the election for the most beautiful girl and best allround athlete in the Meletean. We are glad to print their pictures here. Evelyn Rhiel is a member of the sophomore class. She is an active member of the G. O. P. Society and the Y. W. C. A. Socially she has taken a leading part in all campus activities and scholastically, she has an enviable record. Her popularity is manifested by the winning of this contest. WcndidkjjClaflin’s athletic record has placed him the best all around dthfete in school. “Winkie” is a three letter man, having won his It’y in football, baseball, and track every year that he has bceii .'atslliver Falls. Holding two state records in track and being twice chosen the best fullback in the state, Claflin holds an athletic record hard to equal. One Hundred KlghlvSevenEvelyn Kiiiel One Hundred Eighty-EightOne Hundred Eighty-SineIXSmmmm Buses, cars, Fords, and “The Limited” come in! Students eager for an education swarm the campus. After many midnight paddlings to wear off a little of the green, we know they’ll be real college students. Apparently all Freshmen girls make resolutions not to have dates! Looks bad, boys. Freshmen attend opening chapel and learn ways and means of the College. We do aH sorts of things to make them feel right at home, such as giving them little lectures on proper college behavior—but we know they like us anyway! One Hundred NinetyAlthough they're 1 ate, "It's better late th an never and this seems to be the motto of these energetic frcshics struggling over the last stretch of Cascade Avenue to get here. Proxy and Coach Karl Klandrud talk over prospects for the 1028 football season. The five lonely looking freshman girls are appeased by the Chapel announcement of the All College Mixer. First Football Practise! Winkle, Bong, Hag, Boscoe, Bud, Mac, Rowel, Sceg. and Bill are all out, and much new material Is in evidence. y«»ie V-0»‘eEven Profs, conspire- to get to the Irish battlefield! Red Alness all sheiked up and ready to go. Yes, the gentleman in the corner is none other than Senator Hunt—the fine bust was made by Miss Helen Drulcy of the Art Department. While the Librarians are away, the Students play! How could they lea,ve us! Mr. Vogclc’s nature study class discovers a tree new to Wisconsin —the red hickory ash—right on our campus. . . . Students all primed to help beat St. Thomas. We did. 20-12. One Hundred Ninety-TwoDirectories out! Is your name and address right? Buck White, Lc Premier Vender, breaks all previous records in salesmanship. The inevitable! Guess who? The gentleman from Arkansaw is not hard to recognize. Gordy and Gus, the old partnership, still selling their eternal stickers; Ida and Jacque make plans for the second fourth year class; evidently this will be a banner year. The team is given a royal send-off to trim up Stout. Mr. Erasmus Whitenack gives his famous last words. One Hundred Ninety-Three,No classes today. The college bass drum was unearthed and the big Homecoming started off with a bang. Under the direction of Mish Norseng (in the brown derby), the celebration started off with the traditional unrest which broke into the walk-out and - the snake dance. The peaceful village was awakened from its slumbers with, “Beat Milwaukee”! Mr. Hanna and Mr. Malott arc speculating on the prospects. The school and town turn out to give a hearty welcome to the old grads. One Hundred Ninety-Four“Beat Milwaukee"! Homecoming parade stirs the entire town into turmoil. Big crowds concert the hamlet into a virtual metropolis. Dinners, banquets, the parade with its floats and gaiety, and Anally the game. Of course it was the best of the season; it ended 20-0 in our favor and the Brewers went home slightly saddened. The crowning event of the weekend was the victory dance held in North Iiall Gymnasium where hundreds of old grads, students, and faculty made merry ’till the wee hours. One Hundred Ninety-Five“Beat Superior!” This is again our battle cry. Again we take on our old rival. Every eye is turned toward the battle of the two finest teams in the State. J, D. Ilill and Mr. Ilanna decide to risk all perils and brave all op position (whatever it may be), and go to Superior. So we find that faculty, students, and townsmen all leave their troubles behind them to go to the big game.' Bill gives us his interpretation of the football slogan for 1928, "Toby.” Mr. Whitcnack again gives counsel and they’re off! One Hundred Ninety-SixBound for home and Mother! Buses, "The Limited," cars, Fords, and other contraptions too numerous to mention do their best to carry loving sons and daughters home from college to spend two whole weeks in the village! No eight o’clocks and no lesson plans; almost like Paradise. The home folks kill the fatted calf and the young folks have great sport until January seventh rolls around. Then back comes the caravan of buses, cars, trains, and Fords with our students. Did Brooks get safely to Fish Creek? One Hundred Ninety-SevenThe campus in winter! The scene of many happy and hectic snow fights, toboggan tip-overs, and especially romantic walks in the softly descending snow. The pathway to South Hall. Reward for many months of gridiron struggles. How we appreciate your work! Our reward is small, but our sentiments are the finest in the world. G. O. P. sisters usher in a brilliant season with their annual winter Formal. The “R” Club makes plans for one to far outshine any given heretofore. One Hundred Xiheiy-EtfffitOur Championship Basket Ball Team! Captain Nor, Bud, Seeg, Bill, John, Bob, and Stretch. With the booms of the bass drum a half holiday was announced and we dropped our books and fled to the auditorium where we all joined in lauding our famous team. An auction, presided over by Senator Hunt, a stirring speech by Mr. Whitenack (“Superior must be destroyed”), and a sidesplitting declamation by Mr. Edward Phalen were the highlights of a riotous daj . Needless to say a good time was had by all! One Hundred Ntnelv-NineThe campus in spring! The change in seasons brings changes in campus activities. The College brothers and sisters are royally entertained for the 'Tournament and for the Music Contest. We hope they like us. Basketball changes to baseball,, and we all strive to win health and laurels fit tennis, riding, and golf. Hikes, picnics, and weekend trips occupy our minds, and, since all indulge, nothing is said if we do not have our lessons in A number one order. Two HundredAnd so on—to the long sought goal of all our dreams—Com mcnccment! The stately halls and the enchanting campus bustle with the preparations made for thin long prepared for day. Mr. Russell Johnston's office becomes the all-popular one of the school ns nnxious-cyed grads ask hopefully for positions. Graduation week with the play. Class Day, Baccalaureate, and Commencement is over and back we go to our homes again; some of us ready to go into our life work, others to return to school. Tiro Hundred OneHERE ends the Meletean of Nineteen Twenty-Nine. We have earnestly tried to give as far as possible a complete resume of the past year of college life at River Falls. We hope we have succeeded. What follows is the result of too much burning of midnight oil, reading of copy, and clicking of typewriters. Those who read further, do so at their own risk. Two Hundred TwoTub Quaiiitiu.y Appeal Because popular flections for prised and coveted positions within the student body have come to be, according to the forensic department, one of the ear marks of all up-to-the minute universities and colleges, ice are announcing another election for Campus King, and ice nominate the following: Joe Chopp lii'CAUw lie leads the band with his clarinet; because lie survived after giving two chalk talks in assembly; because his first name is Joe and not Pork; because lie sold chances on the American Legion's blanket; and because lie gives Boscoe Par rail the winning hnircuits. A ns-ik Larsen Because he won in the election for the most handsome man and then didn't get his picture in the Meletcan; because we think his picture should appear in the Mclctcan; because of his political pull with the municipal government of the city; because of the sup)»ort he gave the movement for big-gcr and better davenports in hotel lobbies; and be-cause he wears a tan crusher. Bosco Karrall Because for three years lie has provided the freshmen with assembly scats for the nominal sum of twenty-five cents; because lie is Prof. Segerstrom’s pet; because he is a detective, having traced the man that glued the vices at the shop; because he gathers the eggs at the annual poultry show; and because lie drives a Ford touring car. "Chuck” Kiki.iioi.tx Because lie is especially fond of homemade jell; because he is the answer to any maiden's prayer; because lie is the faithful admirer and companion of those who own and drive Chevrolet coaches; and because lie smokes "Shrimp” Sanford's cigarettes exclusively.

LAST WORDS, WISHES, AND COMMENTS OR LAYING THE QUIPS Tub Aorihai.i.ian Society I'or the Agrifnllinn wc have the most tender wishes for success and expansion. Annually have vour members “high-hatted” the rest of the student body as they cut classes to turn North Hall into a chicken coop and a corn crib. We fear the time is not long distant when you may even sponsor a swine show or a cattle congress. Our olfactory nerves keep us ever aware that you are an netivc organisation. The Aquatic I.kaouk TIic thirsty purpose of the Aquatic I.caguc is forever getting the organisation into deep water. It is a very enterprising organisation. Wc understand that the president and two other members have actually learned to swim, while all of the members now own bathing suits. You will find elsewhere in the book a picture of the aforesaid organisation posed as if about to dive into our own swimming pool, hut, gentle render, be not disturbed, they never left the brink. As the league was Just organised this year, too much cannot be expected, but it is our sincere hope h«t in a few years the entire organisation may bear up under their name and that will feel quite at home in the water. Two Hundred FourThe G. O. P. This announcement goes as a shock absorber in advance of the rechristcning of the organization, which we fear must surely take place. With the metamorphosing of our school into a college, the co-cds have grown from girls to women. Very progressively the (i. A. A. became the W. A. A. Now, the (». (). P. is not the kind of a society to let a sister cluh out-do them. So the («. (). P.’s must now become the W. O. P.'s. We hope that under their new name they will not only get credit for taking charge of pep meetings next year but will actually contribute to the program. The Cafeteria The cafeteria is a place where students who arc financially depressed and a few of the more rugged faculty members stand up in line and wrestle for their food. A cashier is necessary not to take in the money but to keep track of the accounts. The motto is, “If you have the money—eat at O’Brians; if you wish to charge it— come to the cafeteria.” Rural Life Club We bestow on the Rural Life Club the honor of being an organization that tends to its own business, the reason for this being that its members are not aware of the other activities of the school. The organization is strictly Scotch. ‘ Did they return the Agrifallian ball?" “No!” answer the Agrifallian in unison. “Let the lions roar,” say the Ruralites. Tiro Hundred FireThe Lincolnians are organised for two purposes: to supply the students with school stickers and to hold their annual campaign and election. With these purposes in mind they live from one year to the other. Between them and the Y. W. G. A. candy sales, the poverty-stricken students and faculty have been relieved of all their spare dimes and nickels. So far one has been able to see most of the football games between the interference of one Lincolnian vender and another. The only apparent difference between a Lincolnian vender and a respectable peddler is that the latter has a peddler's license. If the membership continues to increase, however, they may become considered so much of a public nuisance that it will be considered necessary to place them under the college ban. They profess to study Roberts’ “Rules of Order” but we throw out the suggestion that next year they adopt for their text, "How To Become An Efficient Salesman,” by Ike N. Sellum. You no Men's Christian Association Dear Y. M. C. A., we view you with the deepest pity. All year have we heard you work yourself into a frenzy over the facing and solving of problems, which, though you cannot find them, you have forced yourself into believing must exist, and that it is your duty to solve. What a predicament you must be in. And it is because we feel sorry for you that our hopes and wishes are of the most generous nature. May you actually some time come face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness problem. The College Masquers The College Masquers is an organization that meets jointly with the G. O. P., providing entertainment for the latter. It is sad but true that they are the laughing stock of the crowd. It has not been much beyond their ability to present several plays throughout the year. Two Hundred SixThk Davison-Nohskno Company The Davison-Norseng Company is an imaginary association that resulted from the over zealousness of these two enterprising young men to get rich quick. They have, by borrowing offices in which to have their pictures taken and by printing post cards, endeavored throughout the season to carry the public along with them in visualizing such a company. Financially the organization has failed in its aim and purpose. Because the majority of people insist on putting their blotters on their desk upside down, not even the business men have benefited. The company was godfather to the King Midas Band, whom it nurtured to maturity, only to have the band grow up to prick the balloon and leave the company without an enterprise. The result is that Davison and Norseng tread alone, unable to solicit even an ad, for the business men all hide when they see them coming. The College Milkwaoon We wish to solemnly doff our hats as we pay due respect to the passing of the Methuscla of the college farm’s agricultural implements, the milkman's buggy. The vehicle has established an endurance record rivaled only by the celebrated “one-hoss shay,” and for this reason deserves a eulogy not unlike that given “Old Ironsides.” The eye of many an old grad has danced to see on his return the milky-way veteran of his Alma Mater unchanged from year to year. Its cargo has reared the present citizens of the town from children to strong men and women who praise its name. Such an outstanding record is a true illustration of that old River Falls never-say-die spirit. The Low Down And now for our good "loyal” friend, the “Low Down.” To you we turn the other cheek as we shower you with the most generous wishes. We hope that you may find numerous problems, customs, and traditions to reform and over which you may become "sour” and disgruntled. May your bright and fitting comments ever continue to curb any obnoxious tendencies that may arise and may they continue to spur the school on to even greater heights.
