Grimm ADMINISTRATION THE State Teachers Colleges of Wisconsin are under the control of the Board of Regents. This body is composed of a secretary, one representative of each teachers college, the state superintendent of public instruction, the state treasurer, and a member from the state at large. The duties of this board are to regulate the courses of study of the various teachers colleges of the state, present a budget of cost of maintenance and instruction to the state legislature at each session, and recommend expenditures for new buildings for colleges that need them. It is through the efforts of this group that the teachers colleges of Wisconsin have been kept at their high standard. The constant demand is for better trained teachers and the administration of the teachers colleges is always anticipating this demand to be better able to meet it. Within our school is a separate administrative unit working in conjunction with the Board of Regents. This unit, under the direction and leadership of the president, has ably met the demands for better teachers. The college offers advantages to its students through the efforts of this body in its fine faculty and directors of extra-curricular activities. At the present time the college is being studied by the North Central Association of Colleges and High Schools. [ 18 ]President J. H. Ames ADMINISTRATION Till- call for a school of higher education came in western Wisconsin as a result of the early settlements along the rivers of this section. By I860 there was a considerable settlement in the vicinity of River Falls. As a result of this settlement a teachers college was located here prior to those in the central and northern parts of the state. In 1874 the River Falls State Normal School was founded and opened its first session in September. 1875. It was the fourth normal school to be established in the state. One building on the South Campus contained the entire school. During the first twenty-seven years of its existence the course of study was confined largely to a course for elementary teachers. In 1892 the Board of Regents made a revision of the curriculum of the normal schools. At that time four-year courses were made available in English. Latin, and German. The professional course was concerned more with the teaching process than with the academic subjects. During this time the growth of the school was very gradual. The enrollment at the first session was two hundred fifty-nine, while in 1890 it was two hundred sixty-seven. I 19 1Dean Charles G. Stratton ADMINISTRATION AFTER 1892 the growth was more rapid. Not only did the enrollment increase, but there was a large growth in the number enrolled in advanced courses. In 1897 the original building burned down, and the following year the present South Hall was erected in its place. This new building housed all departments of the school. With advanced demands for teachers the courses of study have been modified accordingly. In 1910 the policy of specializing courses was introduced. During the same year a department for training rural teachers was started. A special department for training agriculture teachers was established in 1912. A new building known as North Hall was built in 1914 to contain the executive offices, auditorium, gymnasium and the science department. 1924 marked a change in many phases of the school. The courses of study were reorganized on a professional basis, the school year was divided into three terms of twelve weeks each with a summer session of six weeks, and high school graduation was fixed as the entrance requirement for all departments. Two years later the standard program was reduced from eighteen term hours to sixteen term hours. I 20]Dean Irma Hathorn ADMINISTRATION IN 1927 the title of the school was changed from a State Normal School to a State Teachers College as a result of the action of the state legislature of 1925 conferring upon the Board of Regents the authority to grant the degree of Bachelor of Education to all students completing a recognized four-year course. In accordance with this authority four-year courses were offered in agriculture, science, mathematics, history. English and education. An addition to North Hall was built in 1928 to be used by the training school and the junior high school departments. Additional room was secured for the science laboratories, and a modern swimming pool with new locker and shower rooms was built in the basement. At the beginning of the present year the new Mechanic Arts building was opened. This modern building gives better facilities for the instruction of mechanics and manual arts. The three-year high school course has been discontinued. A four-year course leading to a degree is now offered to students preparing for elementary teaching. It is evident from the trend of advancement that in the near future all graduates of the teachers colleges will be degree students. [21 1John M. May M.S.

Those students who enlisted in the one, two, and three-year courses are missing from the ranks. Other students have been added to the class from time to time, so the total number to receive their B.E. degrees in June will be sixty. When this green but willing freshman class was organized in the fall of 1928, Robert Sutherland was chosen as its first president. John Hammer was chosen president for the second half of the year. The pep of the new class was shown in athletics, where John Schlicht. Arnold Larson and Charles Keilholtz represented the class as football lettermen. Three of our classmates were basketball lettermen: Edward Miller, John Schlicht, and Robert Sutherland. The "cocky,” arrogant sophomores continued to live up to the record they had established the preceding year. The prom, the outstanding social event of the year, which is promoted by the second year class, will be remembered as one of the most beautiful and successful in the history of the college. Under the efficient leadership of Carvel Morton, prom chairman, and the numerous co-operative committees the gymnasium was transformed into a flying field for this event. From this class came the three co-captains of the state championship basketball team: Robert Sutherland. John Schlicht. and Edward Miller. Horace Merrill and William Hawkins, outstanding forensic athletes, were members of the state championship debate team. Margaret Burkholder and Florence Mueller were on the dramatic team which brought new honor and publicity to River Falls in the form of first place in the state dramatic contest at Madison. Class presidents for this year were Charles Freeman and Carvel Morton. Through its third year at River Falls the class was under the leadership of Lester Gibson and George Strand. Leaders in every organization were drawn from the class roll. The new Honor Society chose as officers Joyce Bergseng and Archie Hill. The Masquers Society was under the leadership of Margaret Burkholder, and the G. O. P. under the leadership of Lura Ross. 132)Margaret Chapman eide THE SENIOR CLASS THE class of 32 was again prominent in athletics. Three members. Captain “Arnie” Larson and Co-captains, “Johnnie” Schlicht and "Bob” Sutherland, played their last games for River Falls: John Hammer, football, and Frank Vuchetich, golf, represented the class. Members of our class also possessed literary talent, as is shown by the representatives on the Student Voice. Orvis Olson. Raymond Penn. Albert Hannemann. Seward Nielson and George Strand: and on the MELETEAN staff. Leo Krueger. Margaret Kelly, Clarice Olson, Charles Freemen, and Raymond Penn. In debate Horace Merrill and William Hawkins once again brought honor to us. Raymond Penn also came into the limelight as a debater. In the fall of 1931 the class entered its senior year and continued to uphold its reputation for achievement. Pauline Isaacson guided the class during the first term and Hal Chicker during the second term. The class congratulates its national winner. Robert Smith, who won fourth place in the extemporaneous speaking contest of the National Pi Kappa Delta convention at Tulsa. Oklahoma. Horace Merrill. Raymond Penn, and Robert Smith represented the class on the state championship debate team. Orvis Olson and Albert Hannemann. as editors of the Student Voice, and Charles Freemen, as editor of the MELETEAN. have represented the class in literary fields. As seniors we can look back and realize our class has taken advantage of the four years of college life and put forth every effort to show its loyalty to the school. Its achievements have been far-reaching and its activities will place it high in the rank of classes. In no small way is the success of the class of 1932 due to its advisors. Mr. James D. Hill and Mrs. Margaret Chapman Eide. The class expresses its appreciation to Mr. Hill who was our advisor for the first three years, until he left our college to become president of the Teachers College at Superior. A sincere expression of gratitude is extended to Mrs. Eide. who so capably directed the activities of our class through the final year of our college life. —Lura Ross.

[46 JI unior§WILFRED HEITIKG ROY MCPHERSON THE JUNIOR CLASS BOUT two hundred and fifty peppy, energetic, though shy freshmen swarmed the campus when they enrolled in the River Falls State Teachers College to spend one. two. three, or four years. Soon their energy and pep overpowered their shyness and they began the regular routine of college life under the able and willing guidance of Mr. Spriggs, who has always been helpful in guiding us through our trials and temptations. Walter Hagestad and Oral Claflin helped us win recognition among the other classes, and our reputation was established when our baby carriage carried off the comic prize in the Homecoming parade. Successful parties were put on by the Freshman Class. The eventful year passed quickly and soon we passed into the second year of our college career as sophomores. None of our pep and enthusiasm was lost during the summer vacation for activities soon began under Fred Mattson. The slogan from the beginning of the year was "a bigger and better prom.” Marvin Pratt appointed Walter Hagestad as chairman of the decorating committee and with a group of willing workers their slogan was accomplished. The decorations were original, for the sophomores carried their guests undersea. From the ceiling hung roots of water lilies: filmy sea-green waves rolled from the ceiling to walls where fantastic fish were painted by Marvin Pratt and Ruth Robinson. Sea-green punch was served from a huge sea chest by sailor girls. Clem’s Gold Coast Orchestra furnished the music from the wreck of a sunken ship. The lighting was especially good and added much to the enchantment of the scheme. Walter Hagestad worked out a system whereby the lights were always changing both in color and intensity. The prom success was almost spectacular in that it paid up all debts accrued by bank failure and depression. Members of the junior class are not limited in their ability for they have members of outstanding prominence in every field of activity. [48JRoy e. Spriggs THE JUNIOR CLASS IN leadership. Gretchen Grimm, as president of G. O. P-, and Karl Korting. as president of the Y. M. C. A., have piloted these organizations through a successful year. John Thompson and Dagmar Pedersen will lead the Christian organizations next year. Many other juniors have been chosen by organizations to serve in some capacity as leaders. In dramatics the class is well represented in the Masquers. Glenn Gallup has taken important roles in several plays presented. We may well be proud to claim Lucile Garley who has made such a brilliant record for herself in forensics. Lucile won the state and tri-state championships in extemporaneous speaking and was a member of the championship debate team of Wisconsin. In the band and orchestra our class is well represented. Robert Davee is concert master in the orchestra. On the MELETEAN staff, Marvin Pratt as artist, Dagmar Pedersen as typist and Ruth Robinson as junior representative have contributed to the beauty and success of the book. On the Student Voice staff. Walter Klanderman and John Dzubay are managing editors. James Deringer is business manager. Walter Beebe and Harry Vruwink are news editors, and others on the staff include Earl Sumner. Ila Johnson, Eleanor Laurent, Everett Jacobson and Floyce Newell. Marvin Pratt. Rudolph Christianson, and James Deringer represented us on the tennis team. Captain Gerhardt, "Tuff” Helixon, Warwick, and "Laddie” have completed their varsity basketball. Captain-elect Mattson, Ernest Mack, "Butch" Haberman and Lawrence Junchen will play again next year for the college. Harry Kotleski, "Tuff” Helixon. "Ole” Claflin, "Pat” Mattson, "Ed” Warwick and others were on the varsity baseball team. "Laddie" was on the golf team. |49 1 —Ruth Robinson.Louis Allen - - - Gonvick. Minn. Concordia College I: Y.

Our timidity left us and our hopefulness increased as, under the leadership of Ralph White and Joe Braun and the guidance of Mr. Vogele, we were organized and took our part in the various school activities. Our first big undertaking met with success, when in the Homecoming activities our float won the prize as the best in the parade, and our large, white "R" in lime on the mound lay a silent witness to the work of our enterprising classmates. Our class showed an unusual interest and aptitude in the various outside activities. Four of the "R" men in football came from our ranks: Joe Braun. Gordon Kingston. Vern Woodward, and Glen Morrow. Carl Kuss earned his "R” in basketball. In the inter-class swimming meet we captured second place. Five of our girls. Marjorie Gallup. Leona Hill. Ruth Reedal. Alice Bartosh, and Bernice Smith, passed the requirements of membership in the Aquatic League. Our girls' team won the basketball tournament of the W. A. A. Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken made the first debate squad. We took part in all the other affairs, doing our part along with the other classes. We passed successfully into the next stage of our career and became sophomores. Our hopefulness and ambition have not flagged, but have been buoyed up by the encouraging spirit of Mr. Vogele, who has stayed with us as our advisor, and the competent leadership of Alice Bartosh and Laurin McChesney. Plans for the 1932 Prom, the sophomores greatest undertaking, were put in charge of Leslie Libakken as general chairman, with Marjorie Gallup in charge of decorations. Her scheme of the Inferno was perfectly planned, and the result was a new and unique affair. Orange cheese-cloth was hung in folds to give a cave effect to the room: flames licked up the walls: devils lurked about: the orchestra stand was a large cauldron, surrounded by flames. The 1932 Prom will go down in the history of our college as unique and successful. [70 JALFRED C VOGELE THE SOPHOMORE CLASS MEMBERS of the Sophomore Class have made records in every field of school activity of which they may be justly proud. In forensics Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken were members of the debate team and they helped to secure the state championship, which was won over Oshkosh and Platteville. Other members of our class participated in forensics to a smaller extent. We had the highest representation in the Masquers, and each play cast included some sophomores. Dorothy Swenson, Kenneth Brandt, John Swesey, Gwen Dopkins, Ethel Haga, A1 Hocking. Carol Isaacson. Marjorie Gallup, Morris Buske. Harry Hughes. Marguerite Fitzgerald, and Leslie Libakken were members. Literary talent was not lacking in our class as is shown by the number of representatives on the Student Voice: Ila Johnson, Rachel Beard. Theofil Cu-hel, Ella Polgar. Glee Newell. Gertrude Engelhardt. Agnes Carlson, Julia Warner, Donald Parrish, Royal Anderson, Gerhardt Christenson, and Harold Grosskreutz. Gwen Dopkins. Ben Patterson. Crystal Myrick and Anthony Runte were members of the MELETEAN staff. We also have musical talent. Christi Njos played the piano solo in the concert given by the orchestra, and several members of the class were in the chorus, as well as in the orchestra and band. Our class has played an important part in the athletics of the school. The following sophomores earned sweaters in football: Laurin McChesney, Carl Kuss, Glen Morrow, Joe Braun, Ralph Oltman, and Vernon Woodward. Joe Braun is the captain-elect of the 1932 football team. Glen Morrow. Carl Kuss, Vernon Woodward, and Laurin McChesney were members of the basketball team. Glen Morrow earned well-deserved recognition when he placed on the all-state basketball team. A number of sophomore girls passed the required tests and became members of the Aquatic League: Ella Polgar. Zita Martin. Adelaide Hermanson, and Esther Reinke. —GERTRUDE Engelhardt. Irene Hall.

Homecoming last fall afforded the class their first opportunity to take part in school activities. It was their duty not only to enter a float in the parade, but also to decorate the streets and to rebuild the big “R” on Bliss’ Mound. Leona Weber acted as chairman of the float committee, Paul Davee, of the decorating committee, and August Spiss. of the group for rebuilding the big “R.” Football initiated the freshmen in their first college athletics. Twenty-six men turned out for the fall season: from this group a special class team was chosen, which, coached by three varsity players, won all but one of its games and defeated the Red Wing Training School team twice in succession. Two of the group. Lineus Maack and Omer Simpson, succeeded in making the varsity team. Maack winning his letter. The freshman basketball squad was equally as successful as the football team. This team was chosen from the forty-five men who began practice. Throughout the entire season they lost only two games. In the boys’ swimming tournament the freshman team, consisting of their captain. Maurice Entner. Norman Kvool. Harold Rasmussen. Martin Bretl. and Dee Dailey, tied with the senior team for first honors. In girls’ athletics. Helen Stewart and Frances Amundsen succeeded in becoming members of the Aquatic League. The Freshman Class has also exhibited talent in dramatics. Eight of the fourteen students who were admitted into the Masquers this year were freshmen. Paul Davee. Walter Howard. Elsie Erickson, Elinor Bly, Buelah Hamilton, LaVerne Campbell. Imelda Farrell, and Harold Rasmussen. Of these eight, seven have appeared in plays which were presented during the year. The class is represented in forensics also. Audrey Jackman, Martin Bretl. John Casey, LaVerne Campbell, and James Henry went out for debate. James Henry was chosen as one of the speakers on the regular affirmative team. I 100 1RUSSRM. JOHNSTON THE FRESHMAN CLASS FIVE freshmen have served on the staff of the school paper. The Student Voice. They are David Teske, Leona Weber. Elsie Erickson, Cecil Schuh. and Eldon Mocn. Many members of the class have become prominent in college musical organizations. In the band are Winifred Kahut. Norman Kvool. Howard Peterson, Willard Swanson. James Mason. Douglas Boardman. and Lester Uren. and in the orchestra. Grace Schwalen. Winifred Kahut. Phyllis Glass. Lester Uren, Gerhardt Tostrud. and Martha Rundell. Several, among whom are Lucille Wallen. Marguerite O'Berding. and Phyllis Glass, have also distinguished themselves as soloists. The latter holds the additional honor of being drum major of the college band. The largest freshman representation in any organization is in the Rural Life Club, of whose members forty-nine are freshmen. Forty-four of the class are members of the Y. M. C. A.. forty-eight, of the Y. W. C. A., and twenty-six. of the Agrifallians. Several freshmen hold offices in school organizations. Helen Stewart is president of the W. A. A. and Frances Amundsen is vice-president. Leona Weber, Lester Seng, and James Henry are the freshman representatives of the student social committee; during the last term Elsie Erickson has substituted for James Henry. Three freshmen, Frances Amundsen. Elinor Bly, and Thorvald Thoresen. were elected to positions on the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. cabinets for next year. The class has ranked high in scholastics also. In the intelligence tests given at the beginning of the year, the class median was higher than that of any class since 1925. For the first term, six out of the thirty-seven people who made the honor roll were freshmen, and for the second term, seven of the thirty-one honor students were freshmen. On the honor roll are Agnes Erickson. Helen Jorstad, Helen Jensen, Marie Klugow. Thorvald Thorson, Raymond Wall. Elinor Bly. Mathilda Kuntz. and Alfred Mathiesen. It is evident that the freshman class, in spite of the handicap of not being accustomed to college life, has entered enthusiastically into all school events and has passed its first year successfully. —Elinor Bly, Helen Jensen. 11011Mondovi Arnold Amundson - - Agriculture Frances Amundson - Elk Mound Grammar Alice A.

University of MinnesotaVStudent Life in THE Campus Activities OF A Memorable YearHomecoming this year was bigger and better than ever. As usual the G. O. P. girls wore "R" sweaters and the Y. M. C. A. float won first prize, but other features of the day were changed. The weather was perfect, and River Falls won the football game, a homecoming combination that is hard to beat. Alfonse, "Bud" Manion, "Boscoe" Farrell, “Seeg.” and "Bucky” Bartosh came back to see the team uphold the record they had made. I 124 ]Some of the girls of the school were behind the team to be sure. They won the comic prize of the parade. The students at the rooming houses put many long hours and a few of their hard earned nickels into decorations to win the house prize. Webstonia won this year. The crowd at the dance in the North Hall gym gave evidence of the fact that the 1931 Homecoming was a great success. I 125 JThe first practices were held on warm days and these suits were quite the thing. To bring back that sylph-like form was the desire of every player. Their efforts were not in vain—for every home game was well attended. This part of the homecoming crowd may look a little cold but no one seems to be disappointed. I 126 JThe girls go in for a hard work-out. That sound in the South Hall gym isn’t a machine gun; it’s the girls learning to tap dance. The band parade between halves always livened up the crowd. They certainly are a snappy looking outfit. “Hitting the dummy”—just another one of the football players' daily pleasures. The camera man catches “Tuff” extending himself, but he won’t show his face. 1 127 1The four o’clock rush in the library is second only to football in the number of injuries. It is strange what people will go through to get an education, or at least a book. It is rumored that the librarians are going to the Olympics this summer to learn more about conducting races. Mrs. Eide and Mr. Ma-lott hold forth with interesting discussions in their classes. 1 128]Mr. Edwards conducts a hard final in Latin American Government, but the worst part is that he gives two sets of questions. The science department draws a large number of students. Here are several aspiring experimenters hard at work. It looks interesting, but just as mysterious. Mr. Vogele leads his class forth to study nature. This picture was taken just as someone discovered a family tree. [ 129 ]The G. O. P. formal dance with its silvery decorations was a big success. Many former members returned. The Masquerade dance, the crowning allschool social event, drew a large crowd of cleverly masked students. Most of the costumes were colonial in accordance with the Washington bi-centennial celebration of this year. 1 130]Some of the prize winners were caught by the photographer. Svec and Coady won individual prizes. Elaine Peroutky and Heiting. and Alice Lund and McChesney won prizes for couples. The Webstonian orchestra won a group prize. The first Masquers formal was held this year and acclaimed one of the most successful dancing parties of the year. The decorations portrayed a garden scene. I 131 JPicnics are very popular in the spring and fall. In fact, their popularity is second only to studying. A few more interior pictures might have solved the mystery of some of the G. O. P. and Masquers posters that have disappeared. Some of these fellows surely believe in signs. The school cafeteria has quite a force in its employ. .They all seem to be well fed and happy. MMr 132 JEach student has his own way of spending a winter weekend; Schnur, Braun, and Kot-leski prefer to skate; Ruth Robinson and Evelyn Volla are ready to leave town, bag and baggage. Warwick appears to be all wrapped up in something. Helixon and Nolde are discussing some deep problem: undoubtedly they will have the world back on its feet in a short while. I 133]The members of the Float Committee are content and happy after a week of cooperative effort. This committee was typical of all other committees whose efforts carried every project of the Rural Life Club through to a successful finish. The workrooms and pupils that the rural students will find themselves in charge of next September. 1 134 ]Planting the George Washington Bicentennial tree at the Glass Valley School, April 22. Glass Valley play grounds. The first group of practice teachers at Centerville came reluctantly back to school in January. In such groups lifetime friendships are established. The girls say, “Six weeks of work, play and responsibility together is the best kind of an education.” 7COLLEGE HALL HTo live happily in a group of congenial girls, to form friendships with an increasing number of students with varied interests and activities, and to contribute in some way to the life of the group is an important phase of college life. College Hall is a residence and boarding club for women students where there is provided ample opportunity for wholesome recreation, for profitable study, and for personal growth and development. I 136 1Athletic§Coach klandrud THE ATHLETIC COUNCIL R. A. KARGES.....................................President E. J- PRUCHA............... ................Vice-President E. A. WhITENACK..................................Treasurer W. H. HUNT........................................Director A. N. JOHNSON.....................................Director Carl Klandrud........................-...............Cooch DIRECTING the work in athletics with the same untiring efforts, the Athletic Council has this year given practically every student an opportunity to engage in some athletic activity. The best possible equipment is secured for the varsity teams, the playing fields and courts are being constantly improved, and the highest brand of athletics is sponsored by the council. This year Mr. R. A. Karges heads the personnel of the Athletic Council. Mr. Whitenack. who for several years has been treasurer, again holds that position of trust. Mr. E. J. Prucha. Mr. W. H. Hunt. Mr. A. N. Johnson are directors. Coach Carl Klandrud is the sixth member. The council is composed of men who are greatly interested in the welfare of our school and athletic teams, doing their utmost for the promotion of both. The council decides upon the time required to win a letter in the major sports. One full game of conference time is required for football and two full games for basketball or baseball. They may also present letters to some who were kept from getting in enough time because of injuries. The type of game played by the River Falls teams this year speaks highly of the coaching staff. The teams did not win state championships, but will be remembered as well coached machines that did themselves proud in every game. I 138 1SCHLICHT. KRUEGER. LARSON THE COACHING STAFF CARL KLANDRUD...........................................Coach John J. SCHLICHT.........................Frtthman Coach ARNOLD LARSON........................Assistant Football Coach LEO KRUEGER..........................Assistant Football Coach ONE of the elements desired in a good coach is that he be able to develop men as well as athletic machines. Mr. Klandrud has the ability through his leadership to do this. Perhaps no more fitting tribute to his coaching can be made than to say that teams coached by him play the game hard, fast, and clean. In his four years here never has a River Falls team placed lower than third in the conference standings. He has organized class and intramural tournaments in order that every man may have an opportunity to participate in some sport. His friendly manner and sincerity have won him a place in the hearts of the men on his teams as well as the student body. He knows the game as few do and knows how to get the best out of his players. Ably assisting Coach Klandrud as freshman coach was a man who played two years in high school and three years here under Mr. Klandrud. John Schlicht, captain of last year’s basketball team and a regular for three years in football, directed the freshmen in both of these sports. Knowing well the type of play Mr. Klandrud uses, Schlicht has drilled the frosh in the elements of the system, so that next year they will find it easy to step into a varsity berth under the direction of Mr. Klandrud. Arnold Larson, captain of last year's football team and one of the best line buckcrs the school has known, assisted with rounding the backficld into shape. Leo Krueger, a veteran linesman, helped to polish the line play of the team. He knows the game well and gave the linesmen the benefit of his experience. I 139]dbiiml’k. Swesey. dzubay. brooks CHEER LEADERS AND MANAGERS RIVER FALLS cheer leading achieved its highest peak in several years during the present school year. Headed by Walter Brooks, a lively frosh, John Dzubay, Wilbur Dehmer, and John Swesey made every effort to get every ounce of response out of the crowds that gathered at the football and basketball games and at the mass meetings. Brooks led a corps of cheer leaders, who were always kneeling on the sideline, waiting for the psychological moments in the contest when the cheer leaders must swing into action and arouse from the onlookers cheers of encouragement which can urge the team on to super-human effort. This year River Falls initiated the idea of having a student cheering section at the games to enable the leaders to get a more intensive response. Modern yell leading has necessitated that the leaders shall co-ordinate their action with their cheers perfectly. This year Professor Edwards, formerly a rooter king at Ohio State, took over the leaders and at regular classes trained them in the proper motions. He selected four from this group as the yell leaders for the school. They have worked splendidly together and have maintained a high pitch of enthusiasm at all games. Much of the success of the River Falls athletic teams this year may be attributed to the faithful work of the managers. James Deringer for football, and Harry Kotleski for basketball. The managers duties are many and varied. They have to check out equipment, help tape injuries, and arrange for meals and lodging while on trips. Their task is hard but the credit and distinction accorded them is slight. Jim worked faithfully as football manager from the first practice until late in November, being out to every practice with his load of helmets, white shirts and his black medicine kit. Fortunate was he if he did not have to make the trip from Ramer Field to North Hall at least five times a practice on some errand. Harry served his second year as manager of the basketball team. He was very well liked by every member of the team for the way he took care of matters. His year’s experience, however, taught him a lesson; on the night of the last basketball game he hid the key to the swimming pool. I MO)Mark. Mot row. UcQmimt. Kim Murk. Brran. Grrbjrdi. Cladia.

Coach Klandrud secured a game with Carleton for the opening game of the season after St. Olaf had been played in a practice session. The next week the Falcons journeyed to Moorhead to play the Moorhead Teachers College. Carleton was played on even terms, each team getting a touchdown and neither converting. The margin of victory for Carleton was a fumble which River Falls recovered behind their goal line but were unable to run out. The Falcons’ play was erratic, brilliant at times and loose at others. The score of the game was 8 to 6 with Carleton on the long end. The Moorhead team proved to be a powerful machine against which the Redcoats could make but little ground. The westerners were fast and sent many of their plays at the end of the line. River Falls played more consistently in this game, but were unable to score while Moorhead scored twice to make the final score 12-0. I M4 JZEDOIES JUXCHEN HABEMIAN RIVER FALLS 13, EAU CLAIRE 0 OPENING the conference season in an impressive way River Falls downed Eau Claire 13-0 in a game marred only by the wet field. The Falcons’ line opened up beautiful holes and with nice running by the backs, several long marches down the field were made. The wet field and ball contributed to the Falcons’ six fumbles while within scoring distance. Early in the first quarter LaDusire suffered a painful leg injury and was lost to the squad for practically the remainder of the season. River Falls scored in the second quarter after a series of passes in midfield put the ball in position for Warwick to buck it over. It was not until late in the second half that the Red and White, after some good running and sliding by Oilman. was again in the scoring zone. This time Oltman carried the pigskin over, but fumbled. Warwick recovered in the end zone for the second marker. With a lead of 13 points Coach Klandrud made use of many of the reserves who made a very creditable showing. [ M5 JLADUSIRE HOLSTROM MACK RIVER FALLS 14, LA CROSSE 6 IN one of the most thrilling games of the year the Falcons defeated LaCrossc before a large homecoming crowd. The first half was scoreless. LaCrosse seemed to be master of the situation, keeping the ball in River Falls territory most of the time, but not being able to push across a touchdown. It seemed certain that the Falcon defense would crumble. However, the outlook was reversed in the second half. River Falls received the kick-off and after several thrusts at the line. Warwick faded back to his own 35-yard line and tossed a pass to Kuss on LaCrosse’s 20-yard line. He was tackled on the 7-yard line. Three plays netted a touchdown for River Falls. The kick was good. LaCrosse scored in the fourth quarter but Gerhardt blocked the kick. In the closing seconds LaCrosse. trailing by one point, made a desperate attempt to score by passes, but Warwick intercepted one and raced half the length of the field behind beautiful interference by his teammates for a touchdown and to put the game safely away. 1 H6 1Braun. Ctpi nElKi MAACK MCCHESKBY RIVER FALLS 0. MILWAUKEE 12 MILWAUKEE, for two years River Falls’ stumbling block in the championship march, again beat River Falls out of the title by tripping them 12-0 in the Falcons’ only conference defeat. The Redmen had plenty of drive in the center of the field, but lacked the scoring punch. River Falls made twice as many first downs from rushing as Milwaukee did. Kotleski played an outstanding game for the Falcons, skirting the ends and cutting off tackle for many nice gains. Milwaukee scored in the first quarter when LaGosh picked up a kick on his own 4-yard line and squirmed through the River Falls team for a touchdown. They scored again in the last quarter as a result of blocking a River Falls kick and recovering it on their own 25-yard line. From that time on Milwaukee played a safe game and River Falls was unable to score. The game was in sharp contrast to the brilliant performance of the Red and White against the LaCrosse gridders. I 147)MORROW KOTLESKI MCPHERSON RIVER FALLS 33. STOUT 0 LANDING on Stout with a vengeance after being eliminated from the championship race, the Falcons trounced Stout 33-0. The first quarter was played on even terms, both teams kicking on the second or third down and waiting for a break. When none came, the Falcons set out to make some for themselves and opened up with a pass. Warwick to McChesney. which was good for a touchdown. This seemed to take the life out of Stout and for the rest of the game the Red and White team could make yardage on any kind of a play. "Bub” Mack had a big afternoon, scoring two touchdowns. The Falls team showed up brilliantly in all departments of the game. They completed six passes to Stout’s two, and made sixteen first downs from rushing while Stout made four. At no time was the Falcons' goal line endangered, so effective was their defense of both the aerial and ground game. By so thoroughly trouncing Stout the Falcons brought their conference season to a fitting close. I H8 1WOODWARD KUSS OLTMAN NORTHLAND GAMES PRECEDED by the formidable record of not having been scored on by any team and followed by an enthusiastic group of supporters, the Northland College team of Ashland arrived here November 7 for a post-season game. Northland had a remarkable team and only by brilliant work did the Falcons keep the Northerners from taking home a victory. Northland threw away a chance to score from within the Falls’ five-yard line in the first half, when they failed to get their play started before the gun sounded. River Falls threatened in the closing minutes with a series of passes which carried them to the Northerners’ 10-yard line as the game ended. Not content with a scoreless tie, a return game was scheduled for the following Saturday at Ashland, the proceeds of which were to go to charity. A playing field covered with water and mud greeted the teams and Northland proved to be the best "mudders.” downing the Falcons 7-0 in a game marked by many fumbles and bad kicks due to the slippery ball. I 149 ]FRESHMAN FOOTBALL River Falls athletes come from high schools throughout the state where they have been taught varying systems of play. The purpose of freshmen athletics is to introduce more mature methods to these men and train them that they may better understand the varsity system of play. Twenty-six freshmen answered the call of Coach John Schlicht for football. By hard practice they soon developed into a well rounded team. Some excellent material was found, notably in the line. The freshmen were instructed in the offensive tactics of opponents of the varsity, which they demonstrated against the first team. In this fashion the varsity was considerably aided in perfecting its defense. The yearlings played more games this year than ever before and very clearly demonstrated their power. The Red Wing Training school was met first and given a 14-0 beating. Godfrey and Brickner scored in the first quarter for the game’s only counters. In the return game with the same school the frosh won 6 to 0 when I.ampson, playing end, took a pass for a touchdown in the third quarter. The River Falls High School team was played twice and both games resulted in victories for Schlicht’s warriors. The frosh met their only defeat in the final game of the season against a picked team of reserves from the varsity. There was no scoring during the first half but the frosh had the advantage on the number of first downs made from scrimmage. Early in the third quarter Brickner, frosh fullback, slid off tackle for 45 yards, placing the ball on the seven-yard line. Godfrey scored on the second play and kicked the goal. On the first play after the kick-off Oltman ran 60 yards for a touchdown for the reserves. Simpson missed the kick for the extra point. The reserves opened the fourth quarter by carrying the ball, by a series of line plays, to the frosh 20-yard line. Pederson took the ball around end for a touchdown. Woodward converted to make the score Reserves 13. Frosh 7. Neither team scored again. Many of these freshmen should win positions on the varsity next year. I 150]Auc. Coach Schlichi. Allen.

McCally SPRING FOOTBALL SPRING football training at River Falls is training in the fundamentals of the game. Many of the men who go out for it never have played football before. The veterans who will play next fall, and aspirants to the varsity all work out together. It lasts for about a month, at the end of which two teams are selected from the men. and a game is played. The teams this year were called the Reds and Blues, under the direction of Schlicht and Larson respectively. Joe Braun, next year’s captain, led the Reds, while Woodward was captain of the Blues. The first half of the game was a scoreless tie. as was the third quarter. On the second play of the fourth quarter Kuss. playing half back for the Blues, cut off tackle for a 65-yard run for a touchdown. The kick was low. A few plays later McPherson of the Blues took the ball through the line and appeared to be on his way to a touchdown. but he was tackled from behind on the 20-yard line. From then on neither team was able to score and the game ended with the Blues on the long end of a 6 to 0 score. Outstanding both offensively and defensively was Joe Braun. He backed up the line from the fullback position in a superb manner. For the Reds McChesney. Jackelen and Paynter. and Nolde played outstanding ball. Kuss. with his sensational run. was the man to be watched on the Blues. He has just been converted into a back and seems to fit well into the position. Brickner, Mack, and McPherson also performed well in the Blues backfield. Simpson and Woodward appeared best in the line. The game showed that there is no need for worry about next year’s team. With the material that was out in the spring game back next fall, prospects look very well for River Falls to be at the top of the pile when the season is over. The backfield will be speedy and hard-hitting while the line should average close to two hundred pounds from end to end. I 151 1Krueger. Mxk Coach KUadrcd. Miiiim. Jisdm. Woodward. Ha brumal.

After Eau Claire got the first counter on an out of bounds play, the Red and White opened up and scored freely. River Falls was leading at the half 24 to 10. The second half was another scoring spree for the Falcons. Their floor work was smooth and counters came rapidly. Nine men were used in the contest and all worked well. The final score was River Falls 47, Eau Claire 23. A feature of the game was the playing of Mattson at forward. This was Mattson’s first year as a regular. He led the team's scoring with sixteen points, getting seven baskets and two free throws. His passing and floor work were also good. As one of the three veterans next year he should be valuable in forming the nucleus of the team. RIVER FALLS 23, SUPERIOR 24 THE Falcons lost their first conference game of the year to Superior after leading the Yellow jackets until the final minutes. River Falls took the lead at the start and were leading 12 to 6 at the half. They managed to hold the lead until, with four minutes left to play, Kuss was taken out on personal fouls. With the score 18-22 against them, the Northerners sank three baskets in rapid order while the Red and White could gather only one free throw. Morrow enjoyed a great night both defensively and offensively. He made over half of the Falcons’ points, scoring six times from the field as well as guarding his man effectively. His power and height make him valuable in securing the tip off. while his eye for the basket and ability to shoot from any position place him well up among the scorers of every game. f 154 1Krueger McChfskfy JUNCHFN RIVER FALLS 24, LA CROSSE 25 TAKING their second one-point defeat in three starts, the Falcons were seemingly eliminated from the championship race. The down-staters opened the game with a bang, scoring 12 points before the Falcons got started. Then both teams scored alternately until the half way mark which found LaCrosse leading 18-8. The Red and White came back strong in the second half and scored fifteen points to LaCrosse’s five, knotting the score at 23 all with only a few minutes left to play. In those few minutes the LaCrosse team got two points while River Falls had to be content with one to leave the score at the final gun LaCrosse 25, River Falls 24. The scoring was evenly divided, as were the bright spots in the defensive play. The fans were throughly convinced, after watching the Falcons’ last half rally, that River Falls teams don’t forget to play good basketball even when they are behind. RIVER FALLS 37, STOUT 28 STOUT came to River Falls doped to win after beating LaCrosse, but the Falcons’ eye for the basket proved to be too good. Sinking nearly one-half of their shots, the Red and White managed always to stay within striking distance until the final minutes when a spurt gave them a nice lead. Stout led all through the first half and at the gun were on the long end of a 13-11 score. The score see-sawed until, with it knotted at 26, the Falcons went on a rampage to emerge with a 37-28 victory at the final gun. LaDusire at guard played a brilliant game, both defensively and offensively. He scored five points and kept his man well covered. He has completed three years’ competition during which he has rarely been spectacular, but rather a consistent player who played best when the going was the hardest. 1 155 1MORROW MACK KUSS RIVER FALLS 38, LA CROSSE 33 SPOTTING the LaCrosse team to a nice ten-point lead in the first ten minutes of play, the Falcons then set out to get the lead back and pass the down-staters before the first period ended. River Falls, after being behind 12-2. tied the score 16 all and went into the lead 21-18 at the gun. The second half found the Falcons increasing their lead until with the score 32-21 Kuss. LaDusire. and Morrow were forced from the game on fouls. The reserves managed to hold the lead and the game ended with River Falls leading 38-33. Captain Helixon played one of the greatest games of his career. He scored twice and guarded superbly. In the two games with LaCrosse he held the highly touted Novak to a total of five points. He knows the game well as is shown by his own play and the manner in which he directs the play of his teammates. RIVER FALLS 46, EAU CLAIRE 28 RUNNING rough shod over the lowly Eau Claire quint, the Falcons took an easy game from the Blue and Gold by the score of 46-28. The Eau Claire defense was strong the first half and the game was played on fairly even terms, but the second half their defense cracked wide open and the River Falls boys scored at will. The feature of the game was the shooting of Warwick. He sank shots from every angle to roll up a total of ten baskets and one free throw during the evening. His low arching shots just cleared the front rim, swished through the net as though the ball had eyes. Ed always has been a consistent scorer as well as a good floor man. Everyone felt that it would only be a matter of time until he would have a night on and set a high point mark to shoot at. I 156 1HABERMAS WOODWARD LARSON RIVER FALLS 29, STOUT 27 RIVER Falls nosed out Stout, 29 to 27, in one of the most bitterly fought battles of the season. The Falcons were handicapped by having played Eau Claire the previous night and by the narrow Stout gym. Stout went into the lead at the start and at the half held a 13-7 lead. The second half found the Red and White steadily cutting the lead down until with only 35 seconds left to play Morrow tied up the score at 27 all with a beautiful long shot. Warwick took a pass from the tip off and sank the winning basket in a well executed play. This victory put River Falls back in the conference race and put the team in the right frame of mind for the last game of the season with Superior. Every River Falls man scored at least twice. The whole team seemed to work as a unit. RIVER FALLS 31, SUPERIOR 29 O IVER FALLS won their final conference game from the Superior Yellow-jackets in a game in which they never were behind. Sinking their first four shots the Falcons got off to a fine start. At the half the score was 18-13. Early in the second half with the score 22-15 Captain Helixon left the game on fouls. This was a severe handicap, but the Red and White came back with a spurt to make their lead large enough to stand Superior’s last minute rally. A feature of the game was the floor work and scoring of Kuss. Alternating at forward and guard, he led the scoring with 14 points. His splendid dribbling in the closing minutes gave his team mates a chance to rest and also kept the ball from the Superior team. He should have a great season next year. 1 157 )Koilctki, Hriting.

The teams were matched and each team played a short game after which the teams were rated. The squads that appeared to be the stronger and which were composed of more experienced players were placed in the American League. There were ten teams in the National League, and nine in the American. From the start it appeared that some of the teams were decidedly stronger than the rest even within their league. The Cafeteria, composed of Kotleski, Heiting, Claflin, Linehan, Simpson, Hansen, and Braun; the Iron Aces, made up of Schlicht, Weishapple. Schultze, Hammer. Lampson, and Gibson; and the Eide’s Specials, including McPherson, Ash, Tostrud, Somsen. and Hagcstad, appeared to be the class of the American League. The Overites and Fox’s Special started strong, but met with a couple of upsets which eliminated them from the running. In the National League the Ag Frosh. a young team composed of Mathieson, Wall, Narveson, Main, Thoreson. and Gieger had easy going, winning all of their games at the expense of other strong teams such as the Luskonians. Principals, and the Press Club. I 158 ]Wtishipplr. Hammer. Larson. Krueger. Sehlicht The two undefeated winners of the leagues, the Cafeteria and the Ag Frosh, met in a game to decide the championship of the school. The veterans of the Cafeteria proved to be too much for the youngsters of the Ag Frosh. After an exciting struggle the Cafeteria won by the score of 44-14. Wall was high point man for the losers, collecting eight points. For the Cafeteria. Heiting. Kotleski. and Claflin all got ten points. The intramural league this year was a great success. Most of the games were close and hard fought. The ever increasing number of teams that enter each year shows the popularity of the idea with the students, who play both for exercise and the fun that can only come from athletic competition. The games are popular with the non-player. There is always a crowd to watch the game. The coach has other reasons for liking the intramural sports. Not only does it help to keep his football and baseball players in shape, but also gives him a chance to watch young basketball players develop. At the close of the intramural league play a call was made for class teams, composed of any men. not letter winners in basketball this year, to play in a tournament. The freshmen were represented by the squad that had been playing together all year. They appeared to be a smooth working outfit. However. they went down to defeat in their first game, being defeated by the juniors 18-17. The junior team was made up of men who had been out for basketball all year with the varsity. The sophomores had a well balanced team of huskies, most of whom had been working out with the varsity squad. They were eliminated by the seniors. 12-11, in their first game. The senior team included ex-varsity men and several who were on the squad this year. In the final game the seniors met the juniors for the class championship. The championship game was well attended, as everyone expected a close game, because Both teams had eliminated their opponents in the first game by only one point. The game started fast and soon got a little rough. The seniors jumped into the lead at the start. They were leading by 2 points at the half. Late in the game the juniors drew close, but the seniors put on a spurt to win. 22-18. f 159 1Schuh. Schncidtt. Godfrey. BrdL Coach SeMiebt Kvool. Hylknu. Laopwa. Dailey. McCatly FRESHMAN BASKETBALL A LARGE aggregation of hoopsters reported to Coach Schlicht early in December to vie for honors on the freshman team. This group was cut down and about fifteen of the more promising were kept for intensive drill. Practice was held every night. The team soon developed into a smoothly functioning machine that could handle the ball and shoot well. The floor work came more slowly, but by the end of the season the yearlings could execute Klandrud’s plays as he liked to see them done. They furnished excellent opposition for the varsity. Hudson was played in the first game and was defeated, 14-12. Osceola came here for a game and left on the short end of the score. The North High School team was played in two games, both of which resulted in defeats for the frosh. Schneider and Lampson played the best ball in the first game, Schneider getting fourteen points while Lampson got eight. The final score was 31 to 27. In the return game the frosh were turned back. 22 to 24. Hylkema, the lanky center, played a nice game, collecting ten points. Godfrey played a nice defensive game at guard. One of the most exciting games of the season was played against St. Croix Falls, one of the strong teams from the Rice Lake tournament district. Dailey and Schneider went on scoring sprees. Dailey getting thirteen points and Schneider ten. The yearlings emerged at the long end of a 29 to 32 score. There was some very likely looking material on the freshman team this year. Schneider at forward appeared to be the best on the squad. He has plenty of speed, handles the ball nicely, and can shoot well. He should work in handily with the varsity next year. Kvool, another forward, looks to be a candidate for a varsity berth next fall. Lampson and Godfrey were a nice pair of guards, strong both defensively and offensively. At center Dailey and Hylkema both played good ball, but both need experience. I 160]Ptuuk. Godfrey. Waluri, Nilion. Main, Amundson, Siooldiycr. l.»wluo« V. Hinton, McCally, Newman. Julian, Hrdbfrg.

Woodward. Kuss. Braun, and Schnur formed the nucleus for the 1932 baseball team at River Falls. The mound staff was of high calibre. Woodward and Claflin. two pitchers from last year, were again on the mound in their regular turns to dish up curves to the opposing batters. Helixon. a newcomer to the pitching staff, was a speed ball artist and possessed a fine change of pace. Joe Braun did the receiving in big league style. He rarely let a pitch or pop foul get away. His bulletlike pegs to second cut off many a would-be base stealer. His strength at bat also added to his value as a member of the battery. Captain Kotleski covered either third or short in veteran style. The keystone combination on different occasions included Larson and Vuchetich. Jerry Belisle covered the initial sack in a smooth manner. Helixon. when not pitching. held down third base. His fast throw from the hot corner cut off many legitimate base hits. Schnur played either third or short and did a good job at either position. In the outer gardens. Krueger, a great fly hawk, played left field. Mattson, the surest hitter on the team, played center, and either the hard-hitting Kuss or Vuchitich played in the right garden. At bat the Falcons had plenty of strength. Kotleski. batting lead-off. could be counted on to hit the ball on a line, which, if not a hit. was at least hard to handle. Larson was the best bunter on the squad. Helixon. Braun. Claflin were sluggers that kept any pitcher bearing down. Mattson was a sure hitter, as was Belisle. Vuchetich could be counted on to hit when a hit meant a run. Games have been played with Hudson. St. Olaf. and Concordia. The Oles were the only ones to come out on the long end of the score. I 161 1MINOR SPORTS THE minor sport engaged in by most of the students is tennis. Four courts are at the students’ disposal. During favorable weather they are in almost constant use from daylight to dark. Last spring Charles Dawson won the men’s tennis tournament with Lewis Keeler runner-up. Clarice Olson won the girls’ tournament, beating Bernice Smith in the final. Tournaments have been scheduled for this year as well as competition with neighboring colleges. Golf is of greater popularity this year than ever before due to the reduction of the fee for all spring to two dollars. The students who have invested in tickets make good use of them: only rain and darkness keep them off the course. Intercollegiate competition will be carried on later in the spring. Swimming is of greater duration than any of the other sports. One afternoon a week is set aside for recreational swimming for men and one for women in the splendid new pool in North Hall. A class swimming meet is held every year. The one this year resulted in a tie between the seniors and freshmen for first place. Hammer. Schlicht. Krueger, and Van Hollin were the stars for the seniors. Dailey. Rassmussen. and Entner led the frosh scoring. Many other types of sports are becoming common at River Falls. A horseshoe pitching court has been made back of the tennis courts. It is music to the ears of these "barnyard golfers" to hear the horseshoes clang against the iron stakes. It is rumored that Morrow is the best tosser in school. At the close of the football season a volleyball league was organized and a series of games played. Krueger’s team was the victor in this competition. A kittenball league was formed this spring to give the soft ball proponents a chance to show how good they were. Six teams were organized and games played after supper. At the outset LaDusire's and Simpson's teams appear to be the strongest contenders for the title. All of the teams have been going through severe training and are rounding into shape. I J62 1W omen’s Athletics Bjnoib. Hill, Smith, Hi|i, Aniundton, Bfird, Btngtioa Berg, E. Bonncy. M.

Meetings are held twice a month, at which the necessary business is carried on, and a special program is rendered. The members are divided into groups for financial support of the organization. The groups have candy sales, pie sales, and various other methods of raising money. To retain membership in the W. A. A. each member must earn at least one hundred points a year. Points are earned by taking part in the various sports sponsored by the organization during the year, and for hiking, swimming, skating, tennis, skiing, tobogganing. and sliding.

The following program was presented for the day: fifteen minutes of get-together, songs and games, kittenball. relay races, tennis matches, rest period, picnic lunch, stunts, volleyball, plunge in the pool. Play Day is to be made an annual event of the organization. The success of the year’s program is due to the influential leadership of Miss Branstad, whose interest in the various activities created an incentive for participation by the members. The organization awards to members who. during their school years have earned six hundred points, the honor sweater. This means that the girl must have participated in more than one sport during the year. Those receiving the sweater awards this year are Muriel Harer. Leona Hill, and Nadia Howard. Letters are given to members who have earned at least three hundred points. Letters will be presented to Gertrude Engelhardt. Crystal Myrick. Valborg Haga. Helen Hunter. Ella Polgar. and Mae Taylor. 1 165 1llill. Howard. Amundson. Haga Sifwjit. Polgar. I.iedb. Rraaick FIELD HOCKEY FIELD Hockey opened the fall sports, in which twenty-five girls participated. This outdoor sport was under the leadership of Miss Branstad and Ruth Lindh, sport head. This game has a line-up of eleven on each team. The line-up is varied, however, to comply with the number of girls out. The five forwards play the offensive; the three halfbacks both offensive and defensive; and the two fullbacks and goal keepers play a strictly defensive game. The defensive positions are hard to play, as they must keep the ball from crossing the goal line. At the beginning of the season there are many complaints of barked shins and knuckles, and it is sometime before the players learn to keep their clubs down. If the sticks are raised above the waist, it is called "foul sticks” and the opposite team has an unguarded hit toward goal. Many times the players are stalled by getting the sticks tangled during a play. Toward the end of the season wonderful technique was developed. This year fourteen games were played. The group was divided into three teams, the Oxfords, Notre Dame, and Falcons. The tournament was very close, the Falcons and Oxfords tying for championship. After three overtime periods, the Oxfords won the game by a two-point lead. The following were chosen for the honor team and received one hundred points: Nadia Howard. Frances Amundson, Valborg Haga. Ruth Lindh. Helen Stewart, Leona Hill, Essie Rennick, and Irma Polgar. Those who received twenty-five squad points were: Alyce Rademaker, Elizabeth Bonney, Mercedes Peabody, Muriel Harer, Vivian Johnson, Gertrude Engelhardt, Phyllis Funk, and Margaret Bonney.

Taylor, Larson, Glass SOCCER SOCCER was the second activity engaged in. About forty-five girls took an active interest in this sport under Miss Branstad’s and Dagmar Pedersen’s (sport head) direction. The girls seemed to enjoy this game immensely. The game is similar to hockey in that the same line-up is taken. The five forwards play the offensive: the three halfbacks, the offensive and defensive: and the two fullbacks and goal keeper the defensive. The girls succeeded in putting a lot of “kick” into the game. The fact is that no hands may be used except by the goal keeper. The ball is kicked toward the goal: it may be blocked by the body and then kicked in the direction of the goal. The ball may also be bounced on the head or shoulders, but it’s "hands off." The goal keeper in this case has the advantage, because she may use any device to keep the ball from crossing the goal line. The group was divided into teams for the tournament. Three games were played in addition to the eight regular meetings. The games were very close, and the teams evenly matched. As this is not considered a major sport, no honor team was chosen. The following received twenty-five squad points for attending at least half of the meetings: Norma Berg. Florence Larson. Helen Hunter. Vivian Johnson, Mae Taylor. Helen Stewart. Frances Amundson. Grace Schwallen. Bernice Smith. Mercedes Peabody. Phyllis Glass. Muriel Harer. Gertrude Engelhardt. Eunice Kanne. Eda Kreuziger. Winifred Kahut. Lavinia Voight. Dorothy Taylor, Essie Rennick.

JkLbji BASKETBALL DURING the winter months, basketball becomes the outstanding sport. This year Nadia Howard was sport head. All the girls' organizations and classes were invited to join in the tournament. Teams representing the Y. W. C. A., W. A. A., sophomores, and freshmen participated in the games. The games were very close and showed good teamwork and skill. After many an exciting contest the freshmen won the victory. This team was especially outstanding because of the speed at which it played. The team was composed of Helen Stewart, forward: Audrey Jack-man, running center: Elizabeth Bonney. forward: Winifred Kahut. center: Marie Klugow. guard: Elsie Erickson, guard: and Frances Amundson, guard. The sophomore team was recognized as having the best co-operation and technique of play, but was not as swift as the freshmen. Alice Bartosh and Mae Taylor were two of the outstanding players of the sophomore team. The members of the honor team were chosen because of superior technique of playing, good teamwork, and excellent sportsmanship. Those receiving the one hundred points were: Alice Bartosh. Mae Taylor. Leona Hill. Helen Stewart. Frances Amundson. Lorraine Howe. Gertrude Engelhardt. Ethel Haga. Audrey Jackman. Marie Klugow. and Elizabeth Bonney. Nine others were awarded the twenty-five squad points for playing at half of the practices. It is reported in due faith that in the midst of an exciting game, one of our fair co-eds had the misfortune to get hung up on a nail and remained utterly helpless until she was rescued by her team mates. The incident had its tragic results. I 168]S hn id r. Liadb. Eng lbirdt. M«tkl Htnr. Amandton. Klagow. Hon.

Six regular meetings were held under the supervision of Miss Branstad and Crystal My rick, sport head. The season ended in a tournament between the Reds and the Whites. The Reds proved to be superior and won three out of the five games. Excellent playing was accomplished during the season. Twenty-five girls won squad points: Winifred Kahut, Marie Klugow, Crystals Myrick, Ella Polgar, Frances Amundson, Audrey Jackman, Ruth Lindh, Mae Taylor.

BASEBALL BASEBALL is an outside activity under the leadership of Eda Kreuziger, sport head. The group meets each Tuesday and Thursday for practice. Squad points are given to each member who attends half of tfie meetings. TENNIS AS early as possible in the spring the tennis players are busy on the courts. Many of the girls are interested in this form of activity. Two points for each hour are given to girls who play. Skill is acquired by constant practice. The organization sponsors a tennis tournament each year. I 169 1P lrif. Retake. Hermanton. Marlin. Pol jar AQUATIC LEAGUE THIS is a branch of the W. A. A. which is devoted to establishing interest in swimming. The members are required to pass tests of which a sixty per cent standing is needed. This test includes four dives, front, back, jackknife, and an optional dive; four strokes for form swimming, side, crawl, breast, back, the distance of two lengths of the pool; crawl for speed, two lengths of pool, points given on time; a swim of six lengths, free style for distance; floating; and treading. All members receive one hundred points toward a sweater. The following are members of this league: Marjorie Gallup. Phyllis Petrie, Frances Amundson, Alice Bartosh, Leona Hill, Lucile Garley, Esther Reinke, Bernice Smith, Zita Martin, Ella Pol-gar, and Helen Stewart. ARCHERY SEVERAL girls have been interested .in archery. The girls use about a twenty-yard range; each shoots six arrows apiece and counts the scores. Helen Harding and Nadia Howard have developed a technique for hitting the bulls-eye. Those taking part in this exercise are Helen Harding, Nadia Howard, Alyce Rade-maker, Frances Amundson, Evelyn Sias, and Imelda Farrell. I 170]FORENSICS THE forensic year, which opened the first of October and closed on April twenty-first, was without doubt one of the most eventful in the history of the school. The record speaks rather emphatically. Miss Garley won the state championship in extemporaneous speaking. The debate team closed the conference schedule of four debates with no defeats. A remarkable showing was made by the group representing River Falls at the Phi Kappa Delta convention at Tulsa. Oklahoma. At the beginning of the year Coach Williams called a meeting of all those interested in debate. Those persons who answered the call were at once put to work solving the puzzle that Mr. Stuart Chase left in Harpers Magazine known as a peace industries board. The debaters were then arranged in teams and an intramural tournament was held. The winners of this tournament. James Henry, Walter Howard, and Glen Benson, were given a banquet by the other teams. The losers, Ray Penn, Lewis Keeler, and Rudolph Christiansen, were destined to wait on table. After the Christmas holidays Mr. Williams selected the first squad which was to represent River Falls in inter-collcgiate debates. This squad consisted of Miss Lucile Garley, Robert Smith. Horace Merrill, James Deringer, Wallace Voskuil, Edward Kinney. Glen Benson. Morris Buske. Leslie Libakken. James Henry, and Raymond Penn. From this time very serious consideration was given to debating. I 172 1FORENSICS THE forensic department appreciates having a coach like Mr. Williams who has the ability to handle students so as to get direct results in the form of championships as well as give each student work which will be an asset to him the rest of his life. Miss Garley entered the State Teachers College extempore contest. Her topic, "The Expediency of Economic Boycott on Japan," was very appropriate. It was a subject over which she could get aroused. In fact, as she emphatically brought out in the delivery of that speech, ". . . it was a step toward war and would ultimately lead toward war." With the earnestness of this appeal and the effectiveness of the delivery, Miss Garley brought to River Falls another state championship. The tri-state contest was held at Stevens Point on May second. At this Miss Garley won the extemporaneous speaking contest, bringing this distinction to River Falls three times in five years, a record which cannot be equalled by any teachers’ college in Iowa, Illinois, or Wisconsin. This was the climax to the excellent forensic season in which the debate teams participated in forty debates, traveling 6,000 miles at an expense equal to that usually taken for four or five debates. A woman usually has the last word. So it was on the debating team. Miss Garley had the last word of each debate, when she would conclude the affirmative case. When she had finished talking, the judge would scratch his head and say, "Just what has the other side set up that she hasn't torn down?” Largely as a result of her debating, her team was not defeated by the hardest teams in the conference.

The squad of eight made a tour of the state lasting a week and debating most of the Wisconsin colleges. These debates, including debates with Lawrence College. Marquette University, and Oshkosh State Teachers College, were practice debates. with no decisions. The squad debated both sides of two questions, so they were not allowed to go to seed on one point. There was no picked team: in fact, everyone debated two or three times. On February 23-24-25 the River Falls debaters were invited to attend a kind of tournament at St. Thomas. Ten of the leading colleges of Minnesota. Iowa, and Wisconsin were at this contest. One of the River Falls teams, consisting of Miss Garley and Mr. Smith, was undefeated until the final round. River Falls placed second and again ranked among the leaders in forensics. GARLEY PBNH LIBAKKEN BENSON I 174 JCONFERENCE SCHEDULE MARCH 4 River Falls Af. v . LiCron Ntg. Rim Falb N f. n.

Until the time for the first conference debates the squad had been debating both sides of two questions. Then Coach Williams began to whip the squad into championship form. He selected James Henry, Morris Buske. and Lucile Garley to uphold the affirmative side of the Stuart Chase plan against La Crosse on the local stage. River Falls received the decision in this debate. The negative team, consisting of Leslie Libakken, Horace Merrill, and Robert Smith, journeyed to White-water and also came home victorious. By virtue of these two debates River Falls went into the championship triangle with Oshkosh and Platteville. The affirmative team invaded the Oshkosh rostrum and came out on the top of a very close speaking contest by a score of 99-100. The members of this team were Ray Penn, Leslie Libakken. and Lucile Garley. Buske.

Oklahoma t: 'o become a member of the national Phi Kappa Delta society a school must show outstanding merit in forensics. It was for this purpose of proving the worth of our organization that Miss Garley, Mr. Merrill, and Mr. Smith represented River Falls. Mr. Smith entered the men's extempore contest and placed fourth. Miss Garley entered the semi-finals of the women’s extempore contest. The debate team consisting of Merrill and Smith won two out of five debates. This was the best record made by any school applying for a charter in this organization. There were 350 schools represented at the contest by over 500 contestants. ROBERT SMITH Horace Merrill The question that was debated at this conference was. Resolved: Congress should enact legislation providing centralized control of industry. The schools that encountered the River Falls team, consisting of Horace Merrill and Robert Smith, were: North Carolina State: Baker University, Kansas: North Western Teachers College. Oklahoma: Western Union College. Iowa: Penn College. Iowa. To win from and even to lose to colleges and universities such as these is to bring honor in representing our college in such a national meeting. Lucile Garley carried the River Falls banner even higher when she placed tenth in the women’s extemporaneous speaking contest. She went through three rounds and ranked high enough to enter the semi-finals. Robert Smith proved his real worth at this convention. Out-talking all of his opponents for three days, he entered probably the hottest speaking contest in the country. A man from the University of Toledo placed first in this contest and Smith put bis name at fourth place. As a result of this he has been offered a scholarship in the speech department of Northwestern University. LUCILE GABLET 1 176 1Merrill (Coach). Campbell. Jackman. Pnlt. Rome. T. Cwf Howard. Saibrr.

Via wink THE SECOND TEAM AFTER Coach Williams had selected his first squad, there were still a number of debaters left who were interested in carrying their debate work further. For this reason the second squad was organized. Under the coaching of Horace Merrill, assistant debate coach, substantial and air-tight cases were built up that proved very effective in all the debates. The same question was discussed by the second team that was used in the high schools, "Resolved: That the federal government should enact legislation for the adoption of unemployment insurance in the United States.” Because this same question was debated in the high schools, the second team had many interesting debates with the near-by high schools. Two debates were held with New Richmond. The negative team, composed of Walter Howard, Thomas Casey, and Rudolph Christiansen debated the affirmative of New Richmond, while the second team affirmative, composed of Marvin Pratt, John Sebeson, and LaVerne Campbell, debated the New Richmond negative.

Entrance to this group is open to all students and for the most part the individuals have taken little or no work prior to coming to River Falls. It is under the direction of Professor Geere. whose varied background of experience and years of training, enable him to give courses rich in content to which many people are attracted. The finest choral music is sung and this year some A Capella work has been mastered. The classics of oratorios were given attention and the splendid rendition of five selections was favorably commented on by all those who heard this group. Several concerts were given at assembly programs. The progress of this organization has been steady and consistent and its continued efforts will be looked forward to by the students. MARVIN- D.

Under Miss Wharton's guidance students are able to gain thorough instruction in piano and organ as well as theory, harmony, and counterpoint. The harmony classes appeal to many because a sufficient amount of time is devoted to practical usage. This makes it possible for students to put their knowledge to direct use in doing original work. The harmony course also covers work in arranging music. Students are enabled to make their arrangements for quartettes and small instrumental groups. The continued growth of musical activity plus the professionalizing of the music instruction has encouraged students especially interested in music to attend River Falls. Many of these students have had varied musical backgrounds which has aided them considerably in taking the college work. Miss Christi Njos has studied under the guidance of Miss Wharton for the past two years. She has accompanied the orchestra for a year, has done considerable solo work and was accompanist for various groups and soloists. This year Miss Njos played the piano accompaniment for the musical production, “The Gypsy Rover,” a local church presentation, and for the operetta “Hansel and Gretel” sponsored by the College Junior High School. Miss Rucille Wallin has appeared at several recitals and informal programs under Miss Wharton. cara amblia Wharton 1 181 JTHE ORCHESTRA THE college orchestra under the direction of Professor William Schliep has continued its growth both in the quality of the rendition of music and in the increase of membership. The enthusiastic reception of the programs that the orchestra has presented at assemblies is indicative of its accomplishment. Outstanding music of the classics has been studied and the "Unfinished Symphony” of Schubert has been concentrated on in the Monday evening rehearsals. The larger number of instruments with the accompanying balance and increase in technique in individual instances has enabled this group to reach a high level of attainment. The orchestra contributed in a material manner by giving a charity benefit program last fall. In addition to assembly appearances it has entertained on various school occasions, such as informal meetings, banquets, social gatherings, and dramatic events of the season.

This organization furnished many vigorous selections for the athletic events and pep meetings, and in this manner aided directly in stimulating the lusty cheering of the spectators. Much of the zest of the sporting events would be lacking were it not for its services. Not only has the band been a force for arousing enthusiasm at the athletic events, but in the higher type of band music this group has gained an enviable reputation. To Professor Schliep is due the credit for the successful season of the orchestra and band. Mr. Schliep’s six years of experience as a soloist as well as his membership in outstanding bands and orchestras of the Northwest enable him to impart a thorough knowledge of his field from various viewpoints. His class in orchestration is attractive to many because an opportunity is permitted for original work in arranging compositions for band and orchestra. The provision for individuals to try out their compositions with his musical groups is made use of by many.

He has taught violin classes at the high school and at the junior high school, besides instructing a number of private pupils. Recently he has agreed to play with the Eau Claire Symphony Orchestra. Robert davee Mr. Byron Holtz has at various times been a member of several musical organizations. During 1930-1931 he accompanied the chorus and the orchestra and appeared many times as a soloist. This year he directed the presentation of a musical play, "The Gypsy Rover,” in which a large number of college students participated. At present he is the organist for St. Brighids Church of River Falls. Mr. Holtz has composed several musical selections. BYRON HOLTZ [ 184 JMiss Phyllis Glass has spent considerable time in the study of violin and viola. For two summers she attended the “High School Band and Orchestra Camp” in Michigan, where in addition to her violin studies she took work in conducting and the technique of the drum major. At college in addition to her many presentations she played in the orchestra, in a string quartet, directed the College Junior High School orchestra in the operetta “Hansel and Gretel” and also in the Music Contest. Miss Helen Glass, a student of Miss Wharton, has accompanied the orchestra and chorus, as well as her sister Phyllis, and other soloists. Phyllis ni Helen glass For the past two years Mr. Charles Stapleton has been a well-known figure in musical circles of River Falls. While at college he has favored many groups with his fine solos. For a season he was a member of the instumental quartet. As a soloist he appeared at the assembly with the orchestra. The college orchestra and band are pleased to have Mr. Stapleton as a member of their organizations. CHARLES STAPLETON 1 185 ]HANSEL AND GRETEL THE pupils of the training school in collaboration with a group of college students presented the operetta “Hansel and Gretel" early in the spring quarter. The operetta was an adaptation from the opera “Hansel and Gretel” by E. Hemperdinck and A. Wette. The production was under the general direction of William Schliep. Hazel Catur, and Gretchen Grimm. Christi Njos and Glee Newell accompanied the lyrics at the piano. The junior high school orchestra was directed by Phyllis Glass. The well executed settings furnished an appropriate background. The colorfully costumed choruses of angels, sandmen, dew men. witches and cookie children enhanced the effectiveness of the entire production. Pupils representing the fourth to tenth grades took part in this operetta which proved delightful to all who heard it. GRETCHEN GRIMM 1 186 1DramaFANNY AND THE SERVANT PROBLEM By Jerome K.

It is a very mysterious setting; weird noises sound throughout the night, and strange people with yellow skin appear ominously and mysteriously, frightening poor Mrs. Roberts who always has “the strangest feeling.” Mr. Roberts, who at least tried to appear brave, also has his terrifying moments. Jessie, their daughter, feels perfectly safe as long as Freddie is around. The family is very much alarmed because the lights go out every few minutes, leaving them with nothing but candle light. Freddie Slidell, who with his mother has been following the Roberts family, is “that way” about Jessie, but Mr. Roberts has different ideas about the matter until Jessie accuses him of being afraid and leaving her alone. The mysterious noises turn out to be made by a saxophone and the curious yellow skinned people, who act as the servants, are workers in the sulphur mines.

Joyce Bergseng and Carvel Morton: juniors—Ruth Robinson. Nina Jorstad. Clifford Noreen and Cecil LaDusire: sophomores—Bernice Smith. Leslie Libakken. and Irma Jensen: freshmen— Leona Weber. James Henry, Lester Seng, and Elsie Erickson. Carvel Morton was chosen as chairman and Bernice Smith as treasurer. The Student Social Committee of this year has endeavored to establish a precedent for following committees: that of constant social contact among the students through the medium of dances. It is the desire of this college that students remain here for the week-ends as much as possible. With an all-school dance to look forward to, this was rendered a much easier task. The committee knew that a school dance well attended could be financed at a very small sum from each student. After a few trials it was certain that a crowd would turn out. With this as its incentive the Social Committee proceeded to plan and project a dance-a-week program throughout the winter months. Students should be grateful and appreciative of this effort of the Student Social Committee to bring to them inexpensive amusement and entertainment. After each basketball game at home this season one could find the South Hall gymnasium crowded to capacity with overjoyed River Falls followers. It was indeed a worth while way to celebrate a victory over opposing college teams. Followers of our rival teams were invited to taste our hospitality. Many visitors commented on how sociably they were treated by our students. This is a precedent that should be followed to uphold River Falls popularity throughout the state. As a climax to its social activities the committee staged the second annual masquerade dance in North Hall gymnasium. This function was well attended and each year it is hoped the annual masquerade will become more outstanding as the leading late winter social event. I 201 ]Koning H ... HHhr lliiniid. Strand. Ilaug.

Jacobson THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION FOR some lime there has been a growing realization on the part of men responsible for making suggestions with reference to the student Y. M. C. A. program that a wide knowledge of affairs beyond the borders of the campus is necessary. Program material from various sources, conferences, and visiting secretaries, all point toward the widening horizon. Christian brotherhood is a growing conception that recognizes no barriers. Such has been the emphasis of our local program this year. A visit of our newly elected regional secretary. “Ted” Schultz, at the second meeting last fall gave us the initial impetus in this direction. A pilgrimage to St. Paul to attend a large Disarmament Mass Meeting on the last Tuesday of October was the second step. At the last meeting in January a dramatic presentation of the World Court in action was given at a joint session. Then came Thomas Q. Harrison, associate secretary of the National Council for the Prevention of War. with a message that stirred the whole campus. His visit was followed by a series of joint sessions in which the problems of war and peace were studied by large groups. A telegram was sent to Washington. D. C.. pledging our support in all efforts that are being made to overcome the war system with a peace system. JAME P. JACOBSON [ 202 ]A GROUP OP "Y" LEADERS THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION THE Tuesday night sessions this year have been unusually well attended. The men have apparently appreciated the efforts of the program committee. The discussions have been stimulating and a wide range of interests were considered— local and personal as well as international. The male quartette has been of great help in furnishing appropriate music on frequent occasions. The newly furnished Men's Union Room has made an ideal place for the meetings. The upholstered furniture and rugs and drapes have all helped to create a room to which the men have been glad to come. The social program has not been neglected. The usual opening all-school mixer, the Christmas party, the mid-year stag, the spring picnic, the installation banquet, and the cabinet retreat all have been unusually successful. Games of various sorts which have been provided by the Y. M. C. A. for the Men's Union have contributed much to a feeling of fellowship among the men. We feel that the Y. M. C. A. is filling a need and rendering a service on the campus. If that be true this organization feels justified in soliciting the membership and support of every man on the campus. With the splendid cabinet that has been organized for next year, the ideals and purposes of the River Falls Student Young Men's Christian Association should continue to grow and expand. C 20 1luKiaa. Ron. Robinion. Pf«l«rt n, Volli Smith. BcigKng. Grimm. Bartocb. Ilip THE YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION THE Young Women's Christian Association of the River Falls State Teachers College is an organization which is open to every girl in school and attempts to enrich her school life. It has as its purpose "to unite in a desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God.” The Y. W. C. A. has many fields of activity, among which are the weekly meetings which are held throughout the year. Varied programs are planned on the basis of religious, cultural, social, and world problem interests. This year a series of disarmament meetings in the nature of discussion groups were carried on as a special project in co-operation with the Y. M. C. A. The Big Sister Movement opened the year's activity. Each freshman girl was assigned a big sister from the list of upper classmen, whose duty it was to assist her in becoming acquainted with the school and other girls. Along with this, the Y. W. C. A., with the Newman Club and the Y. M. C. A., sponsored an all-school mixer which was held in the North Hall gymnasium. The Candle-Light Service took place in the early fall for the purpose of receiving new members into the organization. As a Christmas project, packages of sweets, fruit, and small gifts were taken to the Ellsworth Poor Farm. The Y. W. C. A. also sponsored a Christmas IRMA hathorn party wl ich was VCI7 successful. I 204 1AT GENEVA THE YOUNG WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION A Wisconsin-Minnesota Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Conference was held at Lake Independence, Minnesota, in April. Seven of our girls attended the conference and brought back interesting reports. In March the Y. W. C. A. sponsored an All-College Stunt Night. A stunt was presented by each organization in school. A silver cup was given to the Y. M. C. A. whose stunt was voted the best by the three judges. New officers were elected in April and were formally installed at a service in the Episcopal Church following the annual Geneva Banquet. Last year the Y. W. C. A. sent three delegates to the Geneva Summer Conference at Lake Geneva. Wisconsin. They were Bernice Smith. Alice Lund, and Pauline Isaacson. It has been the ambition of the organization this year to increase the River Falls delegation. The Y. W. C. A. has been greatly aided in this by the co-operation and generosity of the women of the faculty. Five or more girls will attend the conference as our representatives this year. Colleges of nine states are represented at the conference, where speakers of national fame will lead the discussions. It should serve to broaden this organization to have such contacts made possible. With an enthusiastic new cabinet and association members, and the leadership of Miss Hathorn. which has manifestly contributed to this year’s success, prospects are promising for a very successful coming year.

La Da tire THE NEWMAN CLUB THE College Newman Club is a social organization for the Catholic students of the school, and boasts a membership of about one hundred and twenty students. As a social body it has been successful during the last year, having begun a new plan of having one social function each month. The year began with the annual all-student mixer, which the Y. M. C. A., the Y. W. C. A., and the Newman Club always sponsor. Soon afterwards the club held its own annual mixer in the basement hall of St. Brighid’s Church, being welcomed by the new pastor of the church. Father James J. Fagan. St. Brighid's Guild entertained the club that evening. On November 6 the organization had a memorable affair in the Social Room of South Hall, where Father Fagan consented to sing several songs to the delighted group. Then the club adjourned to the gymnasium for a dancing party. A "bunco” party and the Christmas party were also high lights on the organization's calendar. GLEN P. JUNKMAN 1 206 1Lmon. Linehan.

Prucha gave a very interesting talk to the club on the subject of the possibility of studying more Catholic apologetics and doctrine in order that we might apply Catholic principles to our every-day life, and be able to balance our education with the teachings of the Church. On April 7 a musical comedy. "The Gypsy Rover.” was sponsored by the Newman Club and St. Brighid's Guild. The play, directed by Byron Holtz, and utilizing nearly all the musical and dramatic talent of the college, was a great success. Margaret Kelly was the leading lady, supported by such stars as Glenn Gallup. Al Hocking, and Paul R. Strand. There was a chorus of fifty students accompanied by a full orchestra. The Newman Club's genial faculty advisor is Mr. Glen P. Junkman, head of the mathematics department. In spite of his mathematical inclinations. Mr. Junkman is always the man with the largest smile in any group where one may find him. 1 207 )Nelson. Enloc. Wolf, Gotham, Lot Araundion. Anderson. Baker. Berg. Bergeman.

It also gives its members training in the organizing of programs for the various boys' and girls' clubs. Since the agriculture department of the River Falls State Teachers College was recognized as a teacher-training department for Smith-Hughes teachers by the state vocational board five years ago. the department has enjoyed rapid growth and development, this year claiming the largest enrollment in its history. The officers in this society are elected on the semester basis. At the first meeting this year, Clifford Nelson was elected president for the first semester. The other officers were Harold Enloe. vice-president: Wallace Gotham, treasurer: and Carl Wolf, secretary. At the close of the first semester Edward Solum was elected president. The other officers were Seward Nielsen, vice-president: Edward Howard, secretary: and Wallace Gotham retained his office as Arthur n. JOHNSON treasurer. 1 208 JI.owcabigfn. I.yont. Main.

Zeddiet THE AGRIFALLIAN SOCIETY PROGRAMS arc held on the first and third Thursday of each month. A senior is seleted to be responsible for one program and as his assistants he has two juniors and sophomores. This plan gives each senior the opportunity of directing one meeting and underclass men the training needed to lead a meeting when they become seniors. Freshmen are ordinarily exempt from helping put on a program. The programs for this year consisted of musical selections, dramatics, and interesting talks on timely agricultural subjects. Talks were given this year on rural problems, money, economics, hereditary tendencies, ventilation, and forestry. Some of the speakers of prominence were J. M. May. William H. Edwards. Rev. Arthur Johnson, and County Agent Lichen. The Agrifallian Society carries on several outstanding events each year. These include the district stock judging contest for high schools in this vicinity as a preparatory measure to the state contest at Madison, the annual poultry and grain show, the field day. and the agriculture department banquet.

JL The chief aim of the club is to train its members to become leaders in rural communities, in order that the rural school may take its place in the social as well as in the educational life of the community. Regular meetings were held on alternate Thursday evenings and were usually well attended. At the close of each business meeting a program was given. These programs varied, consisting of addresses, recitations, readings, and music. The program committees were directed by Miss Lucile Garley, who was the assistant advisor of the club. Miss Garley is especially capable because of her wide experience in community and literary work. Mr. Malott, director of the Rural Department, was the speaker at the first Rural Life meeting. He gave an interesting talk and showed slides of Yellowstone National Park. At another meeting Miss Gibson spoke on her experiences while traveling in the West and South. Her descriptions of the Indians of the Southwest were of particular value to the rural teachers. Mr. Stockdale spoke of his experiences with community plays and state contests. Leslie Libak-ken talked on the work and play of the members of the debating team when they went to Tulsa. Oklahoma. Both Mr. Saxton and Mr. Sorenson, superintendents of Pierce and St. Croix Counties, respectively. spoke at Rural Life Club meetings. The Rural Life Club took an active part in the Homecoming festivities. They decorated a float upon which the football squad were portrayed. Lloyd Fox was the artist and Donald Wilcoxon's Ford carried the float. f 210 1I.cino. McCiinloy. Mo n. Moline. Morzvilz. Nurmi. O'Donnell. Palmileen Riley. Sehmill. Schroeder. Seng. Seveiion.

Ylviiakec THE RURAL LIFE CLUB SHE first social gathering this year was the Christmas party. This was well attended, in spite of the fact that it took place just before the Christmas holidays. A program was given, games were played and candy and apples served. Everyone had a good time with his or her first Christmas gift. The regular Rural-Agrifallian party took place in February and was a decided success both in attendance and entertainment. Dancing to the music of Arnie Kuss and his Royal Badgers was the chief attraction, although those who wished had the opportunity to play cards in the social rooms. The annual banquet was in May. This was attended by members of the club, a few alumni, the supervisors and superintendents of near-by counties, and the critic teachers in each of the rural schools. A speaker from the State Department of Education was also present. All of its success was due to the untiring efforts of the various committees in charge. Several picnics were enjoyed by various groups: one given by the first ten members signing contracts for positions for next year, several to the various schools where practice teaching took place during the winter. and the final get-together by the entire membership at the park. The officers for the first half of the year were elected at the second meeting. Gladys Grandy was elected president: Evelyn White, vice-president: Thalia Jenson, treasurer: and Marion Scheide. secretary. For the second semester the officers elected were: president. Thalia Jenson: vice-president. Vivian Simon: secretary. Maynard Thoreson: and treasurer. Olive Moline. ( 211 1Grimm. Robinion. Rots. Volla. Ann, Biriosh, Bngung Birgr. Burkholdtr. Dtmulling. E.

P. began soon after school opened when the eleven G. O. P. girls began active work for the ensuing year by assisting with the tea for new girls in school. About thirty-eight sophomore and junior pledges joined the ranks of the G. O. P- with the aim of making this year not only a success for the members of the organization, but for the college as well. The first goal the girls strove for was a better homecoming. All of the traditional fun and pep of the organization was displayed in the homecoming festivities. The mass meeting witnessed the arousal of this pep and enthusiasm which continued throughout the parade, the game, their homecoming banquet at the Congregational Church, the dance, and indeed, has continued throughout the year. A new event was introduced into the social calendar of the school this year. A Fall dance took place in the South Hall gymnasium. November seventh. An autumn scene was depicted in the decorations. At this dance the members were each allowed to entertain one couple as her guests. The leading social function of the year was the G. O. P. formal held in South Hall. February sixth. A striking color scheme of black and silver was carried out. The dance programs were black silhouettes on a silver background. Small elephants were pinned on the men’s coat lapels and a little nosegay was tied alberta m greene around each lady’s wrist. [ 212 )G. O. P. MR. GEERE. Miss Dasher, and Miss Haddow are some of chose who have contributed to our programs. In May the annual picnic added to the fun and hilarity of the year, for as usual all of those who attended declared they never had a better time, but— they ate too much. The spring informal dance for present and alumnae members of the organization only was another one of the activities which will long be remembered as one of the high lights of the year. The activities of the group continue from the very beginning of the school year with the tea for new girls to the close of the year when we bid adieu to the graduating members. Many grads, returning for the occasion, make it a happy one. but it is also a parting with friends who have finished their college days and an active part in our group. We look, however, not to the parting, but rather to next year when they will come back to join us in the activities which keep the alumnae ever united with the active organization. Miss Greene deserves much credit for the successful year just completed, for she has been a willing, competent advisor in all of our undertakings. She has also done much for our enjoyment when she entertained the members at a dinner the beginning of the year and also when she entertained the officers and faculty guests at her apartment after the formal. The retiring officers for this year are: Gretchen Grimm, president: Ruth Robinson, vice-president: Lura Ross, secretary: and Evelyn Volla. treasurer. I 213 1Ilotl. Llkikkn. Jiiui, Fiii|niM Blf.

Garlcy THE COLLEGE MASQUERS THE College Masquers, the dramatic organization of the college, have had a very active year. At the beginning of the year, twelve new members were admitted. They were: John Swesey. Kenneth Brandt. Imelda Farrell. Elinor Bly. Beulah Hamilton. Paul Davee. Laverne Campbell. Walter Howard. Harold Rassmussen. Elsie Erickson. Harry Hughes, and Glenn Gallup. Five plays were given, namely: "The Romantic Age.” "The Travellers.” “His First Dress Suit.” “Dwellers in the Darkness.” and “Mix Well and Stir.” Each member of the Masquers took part in two plays. A big attraction of the year was the leap year party. This was given as a sort of get-together and as a welcome to the new members and was held in the South Hall Gymnasium. Dancing and bridge were the main features. The meetings, which are held twice a month, have been very interesting. Several skits have been given by the regular members and at the first meeting after the new members were taken in. several of the old members presented a short one-act play. Margaret Hellweg. a former member of the Masquers. entertained us at one meeting with several pianologues. Many timely topics in the dramatic world were discussed at every meeting. Every year the Masquers go to see one outstanding play. This year. nelle l. schlossi r several went to see Mark Connely’s “Green Pastures." I 214 ]Higi. Hamilton, Hcidbririk. Hocking Holtz. Howard.

This is the first event of its kind in the history of the Masquers. On April 16 sixty gay and attractively dressed couples met ’neath a moonlit and star-bescattered sky in a colorful garden, where cherry blossoms were profuse in tints of pink and rose. The white picket fence entwined with branches of cherry blossoms enclosed the dancing space and added a note of quaintness to the scene. Trellises on both sides of openings in the fence led the guests into comfortable, cozy corners. At 8:30 four girls who are members of the Masquers conducted each couple through the cherry-blossom-ladened arbor at the entrance, and thence down the receiving line where they were welcomed by the president of the organization. Irene Hoel. and her escort. Wilbur Weishapple. Marguerite Fitzgerald. John Zezzit. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Grimm. Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Geere. and Miss Nelle Schlosser. advisor of the Masquers. At the end of the receiving line each guest was presented with a charming dance program of white with the Masquers' symbol silhouetted on the cover. Several alumnae Masquers returned for the formal, which is to be an annual social event of the organization. Present members of the club each invited one other couple to be their guests for the evening. President and Mrs. J. H. Ames were also guests at the dance. r 2151Printed by AUGSBURG PUBLISHING HOUSE Minneapolis. Minn. Engraved by BUREAU OF ENGRAVING MINNEAPOLIS. MINN.
