Boscobel NineteenTHE DEPARTMENTS THE foundation of any school is as strong and firm as its departments. Within the last five years there has been a gradual expansion of the course of study in the major departments at the River Falls State Teachers College. With these enlargements one is now able to secure a major or a minor in any one of the following departments: English, science, mathematics, social science, agriculture, mechanics, education, language, art and music. Regent J. H. Grimm A recent investigation of high school teaching conditions in the state shows that more than eighty per cent of the teachers in the high schools are actually teaching more than one line of subject matter. This is particularly true of the schools in that part of the state served by the River Falls Teachers College. The teaching force in these high schools is limited in number and it is necessary for each teacher to handle several lines of work. In view of these conditions extreme specialization is avoided in the curricula for high school teachers. Each student pursues one major and one minor line of subject matter. The major in science is not restricted to one particular science, as chemistry or biology, but must include at least a year’s work each in biology, chemistry, and physics. The same policy is followed in English, history, and other lines. In addition to being able to secure a major and a minor, the various departments fulfill all requirements and provide excellent preparatory training for medicine, law, engineering, and business. The English curriculum opens large fields of study to English majors and minors. The English department gives one not only a very thorough development in rhetoric, but also a comprehensive background in dramatics, experience in journalism, and a very complete study of the various aspects of literature. In connection with this line of study the college sponsors debate, oratory, and extemporaneous speaking. Twtmt THE DEPARTMENTS THE science department includes courses ranging from elementary nature study and field biology to plant pathology and vertebrate zoology. In the physical sciences a thorough study of all forms of chemistry and physics is included in the curriculum. The laboratories of the science department are completely equipped, ranking among the best in the Northwest. including laboratories for chemistry, physics, biology, bacteriology and general science. Offered to the majors and minors in the mathematical field, besides the fundamental subjects, are many courses in advanced mathematics. This makes it possible for engineering students to secure nearly all their mathematics requirements while taking their preparatory training here. The social sciences, their nature, their purpose and scope, their interrelation, and the teaching of them are introduced in the course of study. Thirty-two courses are offered in this department, making it possible to matriculate in practically any field of social science, including history. American and European, political science, economics, or sociology. One of the features of the history department is the flexibility of the course afforded for transferring students. Especially is this true for the students taking preparatory work for the study of law. In the department of agriculture a very extensive course is offered. In addition to the four year curricula, it paves the way for a wide field of other professional work. The college maintains a 240-acre farm in connection with this department, enabling students to secure actual experience along with their training. As many of the agricultural teachers must organize and conduct community fairs, organize boys and girls clubs, and do various kinds of extension work, it is the aim of the department to have its students actually participate in these activities. President J- h. AmesTHE DEPARTMENTS IN connection with the agricultural department is the department of mechanics. A new. modern mechanic arts building was completed in 1930. offering preparatory training for students majoring in shop work. Since 1930 enough additional courses have been added, so that one may minor in mechanic arts. The study of the modern languages is another field open to students of River Falls. To the student who desires to minor in language, beginning courses are offered in French. German. Latin, and. if there is sufficient demand for it. Spanish. The music department of the River Falls State Teachers College offers many special advantages to the musically inclined academic student. He may carry on his music activities both in private lessons and in class work. He may minor in instrumental and vocal music and have active membership in the college band, girls' band, male chorus, and a capella chorus, and the college orchestra. In the art department all courses are planned to give an understanding and appreciation of the fundamental principles of art, skill in execution, and ability to develop such attitude and skill in children. A minor is offered in art to students who complete the requirements of the department. The aims and ideals of education as an institution in present day society, a comparative study of early contributions and the rise and development of modern systems of education comprise the introductory material in the educational curricula. Both the education and the psychology departments combine to equip the student teacher with a knowledge of child welfare and reaction that will carry him successfully through practice teaching and future teaching. In co-ordination with this department a four year course for principals and supervisors is offered, the purpose of this course being to train students for principalships and county supervisory positions. Dean Charles G. Stratton TwntyiwTHE DEPARTMENTS THE department of elementary education, which consists of primary, intermediate, and grammar grades, requires two years of attendance for graduation. The primary department prepares teachers for grades one to three inclusive. The intermediate department prepares teachers for grades from four to six. and the grammar department gives preparation for the seventh and eighth grades. One of the advances made in elementary education during the last few years is the course leading to the bachelor's degree in education which is now given at River Falls. In the junior high school department each student is required to prepare to teach two related subjects. Students who have completed a three-year course and who should decide to work on toward their bachelor's degree can complete their work for a degree in one year and a summer school. A very complete training school system has been organized which provides facilities for practice teaching and experimentation in the various types of schools. Two hundred twenty-five pupils are enrolled in the campus training school. A new training school building was completed in 1927. adding much to this department. Practice teaching is conducted in the River Falls City High School and other adjacent high schools under the general supervision of the members of the College staff. A Smith-Hughes department of agriculture is maintained in the high school under the direction of the college department of agriculture. This department is utilized fully for observation and practice teaching by senior students preparing for work in the Smith-Hughes high schools. The department for training rural teachers is now supplying a large portion of the teachers for rural schools in the territory surrounding River Falls. The college has two rural courses, enabling students to take either the one or two year course. The school also maintains four one-room rural schools which are used for observation and practice work.

Wisconsin Assistant Librarian Thin rE3CLASSESSENIORSRAYMOND SWANSON JOHN DZUBAY THE SENIOR CLASS THE Senior Class of 1933 has the distinction of being the largest group of degree students ever graduated from the College. Only forty-five of the original two hundred and fifty students who enrolled in the fall of 1929 remain, the one-, two-, and three-year graduates having withdrawn from the class roll. However, others have entered from time to time, making a total of seventy-nine to receive the degree of Bachelor of Education in June. Four years ago the group, with inevitable mark of freshmen, assembled for the long trek and passed the first lap of the trail under the guidance of its class presidents, Walter Hagestad and Oral Claflin. The energy and pep of the new class became evident when it helped stage a successful Homecoming and carried off the comic prize in the Homecoming float parade. A brilliant record in athletics was begun the first year, a number of the football letter men and six members of the championship basketball team being drawn from the class roll. During our sophomore year active participation in various phases of campus life was particularly evident. One of the outstanding accomplishments was the promoting of the 1931 prom, a gala episode in the social activities of the year. Under the leadership of Walter Hagestad, prom chairman, and capable assistants, the gymnasium was transformed into an enchanting aquatic scene. A huge lily pad formed the ceiling from which rolled filmy sea-green waves to walls where fantastic fish were painted. The punch stand was a large sea shell, the orchestra stand the ruins of a wrecked ship. In dramatics the class was well represented in the Masquers, and the musical organizatfons included among their number many of our classmates. In athletics we again received recognition, Ray Helixon being placed on the all-state basketball team. Class presidents for this V' year were Fred Mattson and Marvin Pratt. Although decreased by a large number of two-year graduates, the class continued undaunted through its third year under the leadership of Wilfred Hciting and Roy McPherson. The class of ’33 was again prominent in athletics. Five noted athletes, Irving Gerhardt. Ray Helixon, captains of the football and basketball teams, Ed. Warwick, Cecil LaDusire, and Lawrence Junchen, played their last games for River Falls. Thitiy-fotirRoy r. Spriggs THE SENIOR CLASS IN forensics our honors were upheld by Lucile Garley, the winner of the state and tri-state championships in extemporaneous speaking and one of the members of the championship debate team of Wisconsin. In leadership. Gretchen Grimm, president of the G. O. P., and Karl Korting, president of the Y. M. C. A., piloted these organizations through a successful year. The Student Voice was edited by Walter Klanderman and John Dzubay. other juniors serving in some capacity on the staff. As seniors in the fall of 1932, the class continued to uphold its reputation for achievement. Raymond Swanson was selected to guide the class the first term and John Dzubay the second. From its ranks have come leaders in every organization. The Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. under the leadership of Dagmar Pedersen and John Thompson have had a banner year. Evelyn Volla, as president of the G. O. P., and John Dzubay, as president of the Honor Society, have contributed to the success of these organizations. Two seniors, Dagmar Pedersen and Elaine Forsyth, have represented us on the debate squad, participating in the tournaments held at St. Thomas and at Stevens Point. Members of the class have been active in literary fields. The positions of editorial, sports, or news writers on the Student Voice staff were filled by Raymond Wall, Parker Hagg, Irving Gerhardt, Wilfred Heiting and Anthony Runte. As members of the MELETEAN staff, Evelyn Volla, Ruth Robinson. Edwin Warwick, Harry Vruwink, Marvin Pratt, Leland Standiford, and A1 Schulze have contributed to the beauty and success of the book. Three seniors completed their varsity basketball: Co-captain "Pat” Mattson, Ernest Mack, and Russell Haberman. The annals of another class are concluded. Perhaps ours has not been the most illustrious in class history, but its loyalty in upholding the traditions of the school and its far-reaching achievements will place it high among classes. In no small way has the success of the class been due to its advisor, Mr. Spriggs, to whom we extend a sincere expression of gratitude for his able and willing guidance throughout our college life. —Eleanore Laurent.

FiftyJUNIORSCLAUD TAIT VlIRNOX PPROUTKY THE JUNIOR CLASS THE Junior Class began its college career in the fall of 1930 as two hundred and forty hopeful, energetic freshmen. Under the able guidance of Professor Vogele we have passed three very interesting and profitable years. With Ralph White and Joe Braun as leaders, the Freshmen Class soon gained prominence. We gained recognition when our float took first prize in the Homecoming parade, and the large white "R” was constructed on Bliss Mound. Members of the class immediately became participants in the various activities of the school. Four men of the class. Joe Braun. Gordon Kingston. Vernon Woodward and Glenn Morrow, earned an "R" in football, and Carl Kuss made his "R" in basketball. Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken were chosen for the debate team. As sophomores we worked toward the big event of the year—the Prom. Alice Bartosh and Laurin McChesney guided us through this year. Leslie Libakken was made general chairman of the Prom, and Marjorie Gallup was put in charge of the decorations, the scheme of which was very original. The gym was transformed into an Inferno; orange cheese cloth was hung in folds to give a cave effect to the room; flames licked up the walls, and many devils lurked about. The orchestra stand was a huge cauldron, surrounded by flames. The Prom was an unusual success. The sophomores showed their colors in debate and athletics as well. Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken were members of the state championship debate team. Laurin McChesney. Carl Kuss, Glenn Morrow, Joe Braun. Ralph Oilman, and Vernon Woodward made their "R’s" in football. Carl Kuss and Glenn Morrow earned their basketball sweaters, and Glenn Morrow was placed on the all-state basketball team. As juniors we have continued the good record of our first two years with Claude Tait and Vernon Pcroutky as pilots. The junior float won first prize in the Homecoming parade. Many of the members of the Junior Class have shown their ability in their work on the college publications. Ella Polgar has been editor of the Student Voice, and Donald Parish. John Sebeson. William Lover. Vernon Woodward. Stanley Oftedahl. have served on the staff. Leslie Libakken was chosen editor of the 1933 MELETEAN and Milton Hunnicutt campus photographer. Fiiiy-iwoALFRED C. VOCBLE THE JUNIOR CLASS WILLIAM LOVER has led the Masquers through a successful year. Leslie Libakken. Morris Buske. Marjorie Gallup, Joyce Heidbrink. Allen Hocking, Carol Isaacson, Helen Knutson, Dorothy Swenson, John Swesey, Vernon Peroutky and Claude Tait are also members. The Junior Class was again represented in debate by Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken. They teamed together throughout the season in a combination that at the tournaments at St. Thomas and Stevens Point beat such schools as South Dakota State, Whitewater. Eau Claire. Superior. Platteville. University of North Dakota. Gustavus Adolphus, and Sioux Falls. In addition to this Morris Buske received the honor of being made president of the Wisconsin Forensic Association. Joe Braun was captain of the football team this year and Carl Kuss. Vernon Woodward. Laurin McChesney. Glenn Morrow, Sylvester Nolde. Norman Panzenhagen. and Wallace Voskuil earned their football sweaters. Carl Kuss was one of the co-captains of the basketball team and was placed on the all-state team—the only player to receive the unanimous vote of the judges. Vern Woodward, Glenn Morrow, Laurin McChesney. and Emil Schiesser were given their sweaters and Glenn was elected captain of next year's team. Carl Kuss. Joe Braun, and Vern Woodward received baseball letters. One of eminent athletes. Vern Woodward, has succeeded in distinguishing himself not only in collegiate athletics but also in the line of boxing. Vern made a reputable record in the Golden Gloves Tournament held at Minneapolis. He has also defeated a number of opponents in a series of bouts at Eau Claire and Superior. We are also well represented in the band, orchestra, W. A. A.. Y. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., and the Honor Society, and many of the members are officers in the various organizations. Bernice Smith will be president of the Y. W. C. A. next year, and Leonard Dorman will be president of the Y. M. C. A. The Class of '34, then, has completed three years of college-years marked by individual and group success and by a spirit of friendship and happy co-operation. For much of this spirit we are indebted to Mr. Vogcle, whose energy has led the class through more than one difficulty. 67 —Carol Isaacson. Ftfir-lbcrrAmery Ernest Anderson Science and Mathematics Y.

SeventySOPHOMORESIINIST BRICKNER PRESTON LAM MON THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Two HUNDRED Thirty-two young men and women enrolled in college as freshmen in the fall of 1931 and by spring had contributed many good things to the school. They fulfilled their Homecoming duties and all other tasks requested in a sportsmanlike manner and. in addition, found time to excel in the two big open fields of college life, athletics and scholarship. Maack and Simpson made the varsity football team, the former winning his letter. The freshman team won first place in the men's inter-class swimming tournament, while two girls. Helen Stewart and Frances Amundson, were admitted to the Aquatic League. Nine people were distinguished with the honorary scholarship "R.” In fact, all fields of activity were invaded, the class building a modest but substantial place for itself within the school. The class during the sophomore year was headed by our presidents, Ernest Brickner and Preston l.ampson, and ably superintended by Mr. Russell Johnston, who served last year also as advisor. The group, which has now decreased to one hundred fifty-eight, was represented on the student social committee by Elaine Brunner, Doris Sheila, and Omar Simpson. Fifteen people won admittance to the Honor Society this year. Two activities somewhat similar in character have proved both attractive and worth while to those who have participated in them. The sophomore class has contributed some very good workers to the first of these, the student publications. Twelve of the present Student Voice Staff of thirty-one are from that group, including Leona Weber. David Teske. Lilian Gaustad. Helen Jenson. Irma Polgar, Thorwald Thoreson. Eldon Moen. William Kulstad, Vernon Geiger. Albert Berg, and Arnold Amundson. The MELETEAN force has on its list Catherine Phillips. Frances Amundson, and Elinor Bly. In forensic participation. James Mason and La Vern Campbell have won the “R's” and thus brought additional honor to their class. Elaine Brunner, Alfred Nelson, Thorwald Thorson. and Harley Borgen also have entered into speech work. The Art Club has among its members Catherine Phillips. Lester Uren, Dorothy Mather. Evelyn Sias, Verona Schruth, and Helen Hanson. SfvtmyiwoKUSSIIM. JOHNSTON THE SOPHOMORE CLASS ATHLETICS, of course, drew a large representation from the Sophomore Class. In football, Omer Simpson and Ernest Brickncr followed the precedent set last year by Maack in winning their "R’s.” Simpson won the added distinction of being chosen captain-elect of the next year’s squad. The basketball team, with Simpson as manager, starred Preston Lampson, Louis Hill, and Harold Isaacson. The class swimming team, consisting of Captain Rasmussen. Kvool. Bred, Dailey, Brooks, and Brekke. repeated their victory of last year by winning the inter-class meet. In women's athletics, Frances Amundson. Grace Schwalen. and Helen Stewart have been singled out for membership in the Aquatic League. Lillian Gaustad and Frances Amundson have acted as presidents of the 1932 W. A. A. Religious organizations draw the largest membership in the school. Of the sophomores, forty-one are Y. M. C. A. members, thirty-seven are enrolled in the Y. W. C. A., and sixteen are Newman Club Workers. Frances Amundson. Elinor Bly. Thorwald Thoreson. and Stanley Oftedahl served this year on the cabinets of the first two groups mentioned. Music and dramatics have carried on large representations from last year. In instrumental music, Lester Uren, Margaret Ford, Grace Schwalen. Martha Rundell, Gerhard Tostrud, Winifred Kahut, Willard Swanson, James Mason, and Eileen Mau have been outstanding. Rucille Wallen, Marguerite O’Berding, and Phyllis Glass have distinguished themselves as soloists, while the latter holds also the position of band drum major. Eight members of the class, Paul Davee, La Vern Campbell, Imelda Farrell, Harold Rasmussen, Elaine Brunner, James Mason, Leona Weber, and Elinor Bly, have worked in productions put on by the Masquers Society. At the present time, the Sophomore Class is making arrangements for the big job of the year, the spring prom. General arrangements have been put in charge of Elaine Brunner. Leona Weber acts as chairman of the decorating committee, which has worked out in black and silver a modernistic scheme depicting the Century of Progress. The Prom, it is expected, will conclude a very successful sophomore year. —Elinor Bly. Srvfniy-th tThelma E. Aaby Frederic Intermediate Frances N. Amundson . Elk Mound Grammar Y. W. c. A. 1. 2.

The Freshman Class really made their debut last fall with the advent of Homecoming. They were initiated into college routine when the Homecoming chairman delegated them to re-lime the big "R" on Bliss Mound, decorate Main Street of town, and to enter a float in the parade. President Mike White acted as chairman of the capable liming committee. Woodrow Haugen of the decorating committee, and Carl Pflanz supervised and rode the comic frosh float. Representing the freshmen on the Student Social Committee were Helen Colts. Dorothy Lunger, and Dean Enloe. Football then became the initial diversion into college athletics. Fifteen freshmen responded to Coach Klandrud's call, and from this turnout a freshman team was chosen and coached by Ray Helixon, a former varsity player. During the football season Mike White and Harry Enloe were cheerleaders. The freshman basketball squad was chosen and again coached by former Captain Helixon. They lost only one game during the season. Twelve freshmen were awarded numerated sweaters. This is the first time this distinction has been awarded the freshmen of River Falls, and indicates in itself the capabilities of these athletes. As a result of the Boys’ Swimming Tourney the freshman team drew third place. Captain Henry Forsyth. Joe Baker. Louis Kulas, Donald May, and Robert O'Brien represented the class. In the W. A. A.. Alice Smead was vice-president. Lois Espeseth secretary, Gladys Johnson treasurer, and Gertrude Kirchmeier recording secretary. Mike White and Elmer Fenske have each given two boxing exhibitions at the Eagle's Club in Eau Claire, and Mike has also appeared in an exhibition fight in the Masonic Temple at River Falls. Of the eighteen vacancies in the Masquers last fall, eleven of the candidates chosen were of the freshman class: Mildred Chelgren, Vivian Grunke, Shirley Severson, Ardelle Hamlett. Wayne Wilcox, Mary Jane Larson, Helen Kotts. Mariann Wakefield. Ophelia White, Elinor Ohman. and Carl Pflanz. All of these members have played in one or more presentations during the year. Xintty-figlitJUSTIN WILLIAMS THE FRESHMAN CLASS JOAN SMITH was selected as a speaker on the regular debate team, and Margaret McCabe, Rosella Paulson, Dale Johnson, and Carl Pflanz debated on the second team. Seven freshmen have served on the Student Voice Staff. They are Shirley Severson, Emily Collins. Mariann Wakefield, Lois Espeseth. Joe Vozabel. Fred Hall, and Alton Moen. Carl Pflanz was a member of the MELETEAN Staff. Of the forty-five members that comprise the total ensemble of the band, twenty'two arc freshmen. The orchestra, with its total of thirty-three members, depends to a great extent upon the fourteen freshmen representatives. Ardelle Hamlett and Mary Jane Larson gave two piano recitals before assembly, and Gretna Waller has appeared once. The Girls’ Glee Club, though frequently changed and reorganized, still draws upon the freshmen for half of its membership. Leroy Alexander, Gretna Waller. Virgil Goldsmith, Paul Malueg, and Mildred Chclgren were members of the Mixed Chorus. There arc thirty-six freshmen enrolled in the Rural Life Club. Thirty of the freshmen boys arc members of the Y. M. C. A. Donald May was elected to a position on the cabinet for the next year. Forty-one girls belong to the Y. W. C. A. Those who were elected to hold positions on the cabinet for next year are Helen Kotts, Gertrude Kirchmcier, and Jane Boyle. Zona Gale Martin will serve as secretary of the organization. The most outstanding element contributing to the freshman distinction was the high rating scored in the Otis Intelligence Test. The class scored the highest I. Q. median since the inauguration of this project in school. Five of the thirty-eight students on the honor roll were freshmen: Leroy Alexander, Floyd Krause. Ardelle Hamlett, Omar Bacon, and Mariann Wakefield. The fact that the class was handicapped by their unfamiliarity with college routine, and that a large percentage of the students spent week-ends or even nights at home tended to interrupt and derange the normal semblance of affairs. The class, however, has made an estimable display of courage and aptitude toward higher ideals, and is capable of illimitable success. —Carl Pflanz. Ninety nineLeroy Alexander . .

President Vice-President Treasurer Director Director Coach Coach THE work of the Athletic Council, created to supervise the athletics of the school, was outstanding this past year. Students will remember the interest of the president of the council. R. A. Karges. The other members. E. A. Whitenack. E. J. Prucha. W. H. Hunt. A. N. Johnson. Carl Klandrud. and E. B- Cowles, have worked with the president in offering an excellent program in athletics, which, varied and extensive throughout the entire year, has enabled every man in the school to participate in some form of sports. The type of games carried on by any team representing the college indicates the standards set up by the department. Clean and hard fought contests by well coached teams were witnessed by the audiences. On the football field, in the gymnasium, and on the diamond teams wearing the red and white played the game until the end. Intra-mural organization contests were sponsored, which have given every man in school a chance to participate in some form of athletics. Swimming and tennis meets are held each year. Aid in carrying on the high school district basketball tournament was given by the council. Athletes representing the school in major sports are awarded letters. One full conference game in football and two games in basketball and baseball must be played by a member in order to receive his letter. Oat btadrtd cight«nCOACH COWLES THE COACHING STAFF Carl Klandrud Osborne Cowles . Oral Claflin Raymond Helixon Lawrence Junchen Coach Coach Assistant Coach Assistant Coach Assistant Coach IN December Coach Klandrud resigned his post as athletic director and coach. having filled that position for the last four and one-half years. His record at River Falls has been outstanding. Two state championship basketball teams have represented this school during the time. His basketball teams have won 29 conference games and lost only 4: his five football teams took 15 games, lost 6, and tied one. finishing second in the conference race twice and never placing below third. His friendship has been extended beyond the school during his work at River Falls. Friends will eagerly watch his accomplishments in his new position. Osborne Cowles, formerly coach at Carleton. was selected as athletic director and coach soon after Carl Klandrud resigned. His work at Carleton has been outstanding both as a player and later as a coach. As a student, he starred in football and basketball for three seasons. Later he returned as director and started the Carls on their string of basketball victories which is still intact. He was faced with a tough basketball schedule as his first assignment at River Falls. During his short stay he has already shown his complete understanding of the game and his coaching ability. Oral Claflin. Raymond Helixon. and Lawrence Junchen completed the coaching staff during the football season. Mr. Helixon also assisted as freshman basketball coach. Om hudird Blanna! 1 mm vltmtm jgy liiteBa RH3SS| | I ' " ™ John swesey omor Simpson MANAGERS AND CHEER LEADERS THE burdens that fall on a business manager were taken care of by John Swesey and Omer Simpson. John was one of the first on the football field and one of the last to leave. He has experienced the fact that there is more to football than playing the game. Simpson took over the work during the basketball season. The climax to a manager’s job is refreshing and cooling. A plunge into the swimming tank is promised them by the players. Football gets our attention in the fall, basketball follows and holds us until the baseball season. We like to go to pep meetings and cheer for the team. Seldom do we think of those who plan the meetings and pep us up to the point of cheering. The cheer leaders are quite forgotten by most students. The success of any athletic program cannot be admitted without taking into consideration the part played by the cheer leaders, who arouse in the students the spirit that makes the team remember that the school is back of them. An enthusiastic send-off cannot be denied a winning team. The work this year was carried on by Walter Brooks. Harley Borgen. Harry Enloe. and Mike White. Students who were in college last year will remember Brooks working before the crowds. His work during his freshman year was outstanding. The other three members of the group were new in the game. Mike White started right in to pep up the crowd just as his brothers “Punk” and "Buck” used to do. Enloe and Borgen were always on the job to put the spectators in the mood for any athletic contest. The leaders held regular practice classes and performed as one or in pairs during a game. One hundred twentyJancbfn. K»u. Simptoo. Morrow. McChrinry. Hibrrmjn. Woodward. JacktUa Coach Cowin.

BRAUN (Opuin). MACK WOODWARD NON-CONFERENCE GAMES THE Falcons were tested for their defensive and offensive play in two nonconference games. The school is fortunate in being located near other colleges that seek pre-conference tilts. Coach Klandrud found very good opposition for his eleven in a game with Macalester. The following week the squad traveled to Ashland for the final test before the Stout game. Although the Falcons were rated to drop the game, they sent Macalester back to Minnesota with a 6-0 defeat. The counter did not come until the third quarter, when Captain Braun carried the ball, across. A more confident team left River Falls the following week to invade Northland College. The Lumberjacks had a much changed lineup from the previous year, but the Falcons did not find them too difficult to take. Kuss scored in the first quarter on a 12-yard lateral pass play and again in the third period with a 15-yard run around right end. Woodward converted the point after the second touchdown. By withstanding the final attack, the Falcons were able to return with a 13-0 victory. Om hundud ttrcBiy-foofSIMPSON MCCHBSNBY. JACKHLHN. PA-NZENHAGEN MORROW RIVER FALLS 9, STOUT 6 THE Falcons began their conference season by trouncing Stout to the score of 9-6. It was an eleven determined not to have their Homecoming spoiled that River Falls had to work against all afternoon. The first half ended in a scoreless tie. and both teams played cautious ball in the beginning of the second half, with Stout scoring the first touchdown. After the next kick-off. thtf Falcons began to play a different brand of football with a drive down the field to the one-foot line where they were held on downs. Stout, in attempting to kick out of danger, stepped out of the end zone and automatically gave River Falls two points for the safety. Another drive against the weakening Blue Devils placed the ball on the one-yard line with one down to go in the fourth quarter. With a victory in sight Ole Pederson outran the opposing team around right end for the touchdown. Woodward added one more point by kicking goal to give his team an advantage of three points in the closing minutes of the game. Ont hundr«d i%»«nty livfLAMPSON KOTLESKI. Noi.Di:. PEDERSON MCPHERSON RIVER FALLS 7, SUPERIOR 6 A BITTERLY fought contest was witnessed at Ramer Field Homecoming Day. Superior was defeated 7-6 in a game featuring great defensive playing, which kept both teams from scoring during the first quarter. The second quarter started out the same until River Falls exploded the bomb. Lampson replaced Woodward at guard, which put worry in the Yellow jackets’ camp immediately. They were aware of the pass to come within the next minutes and set about to stop it. A perfect pass from Braun to Lampson was executed on the next play, which brought the Falcons well within the territory of Superior. It was the beginning of a march towards the goal posts that resulted in a touchdown when Braun plunged over for the counter. Woodward’s placement kick made it 7-0 shortly before the half was completed. The second half showed a different type of playing. The Yellowjackets ran the ball down the field a number of times, but the Falcons held before they were in dangerous territory. After Superior had crossed the goal in the fourth quarter. Morrow charged through and spoiled a chance for a tie game. On hundrrd ivniy-tiiBRICKNER. KOLBERG JOHNSON PAYNTER RIVER FALLS 12, LA CROSSE 14 A FIGHTING Falcon eleven was defeated at La Crosse by a score of 12-14. with the defeat handed during the first seven minutes of play. Taking advantage of the win, the ball was punted deep into River Falls’ territory. A fumble recovered by La Crosse was converted into a touchdown in three plays. The second tally came soon afterwards as the result of blocking a Falcon punt which rolled behind the goal line. With both tries for extra point made good, the score was 14-0 within seven minutes of football. During the rest of the game. River Falls completely held La Crosse in check, allowing the Maroons no more first downs. A pass from Braun to McChesney in the second quarter counted the first score, but a wide kick left it 14-6 at the end of the half: neither team could raise the score during the third period. A beautiful cut back through left guard on the 24-yard line by Kuss in the fourth quarter brought River Falls its second counter. The extra point failed when the ball hit the uprights, leaving the score with a difference of two points. The line was impressive with Lampson. McChesney. and Woodward playing great ball. One hundred rwenjy-wvcnRIVER FALLS 13, EAU CLAIRE 6 EAU CLAIRE brought a team with a line that was big and tough, but River Falls scored a 13 6 victory. Neither team was able to score in the first quarter, playing a see-saw game. A pass from Nolde to Lampson in the second quarter, followed by an end run by Kuss. carried the ball to the 30-yard line. Here the ball was lost on downs, but Panzenhagen recovered it by blocking a punt. In four downs Pederson carried the ball around left end for the first score with the extra point made good. The second half showed some fine defensive playing. A pass from Braun to McChesney put the ball on the 18-yard line: a first down brought it to the 2-yard line. Eau Claire stepped in to hold for four downs and then punted to the 35-yard line. At that point Kotleski took things in his hands and scored a touchdown in five plays. Eau Claire came back in the fourth quarter to get into the scoring column. By completing four out of six passes in rapid succession, they secured their only touchdown. During the remainder of the game, both teams began passing attacks, but no serious attempts were made to cross the goal lines. The Falcons made ten first downs and completed five of eleven passes: Eau Claire made five first downs and completed three of thirteen passes. | Jpp m 1| w w mM Raymond iidlixon oral claflin assistant coacii assistant coacii On hultdi«d twenty.fightSPRING FOOTBALL COACH Cowles got his first chance to get a look at his football material during spring practice, since he joined the coaching staff after the season last fall. The time was spent in teaching fundamentals of football. In his first call a large squad reported. Many of the men were new in the game, and spring practice gave them a very good background for the fall season. For the others, it was a chance to correct their mistakes and improve their style of play. The spring drill will mean a great saving of time in the fall, as there will be less time needed to get organized. A practice game with St. Thomas was held to enable the men to put their new ideas into working. The season was closed with a game between members of the squad divided into two teams.

Mattson, and Haberman broke in to aid Morrow in boosting the score. Eau Claire made desperate drives to overcome the lead, but lost by 13 points, the final score being 37-24. RIVER FALLS 27, MILWAUKEE 36 Milwaukee furnished the opposition in the second conference game on the evening following the game at Eau Claire. Two nights in a row proved too much for the Falcons. River Falls held the short end at the half, the score being 14-20. The second period was played on terms similar to the first. Morrow pushed the ball through the net for two field goals: Mack and Kuss each counted for three points in the second half. Morrow was high point man for the Falcons with eight points. The team played good ball, but had lost their shooting eye and were unable to drop them through the net. RIVER FALLS 32, LA CROSSE 37 RIVER Falls dropped their third conference game of the season to a highly polished La Crosse team. The visitors were the first to score in the game, but Morrow tied things up with a nice long shot from one side of the floor. The Maroons soon forged ahead again and kept the lead for the rest of the period, holding the long end of the 16-22 score at the half. Kuss and Morrow were very closely guarded at first, but finally Kuss slipped through to get ten points in the last period.

Stout was unable to work the ball in for close in-shots and did not get chances to try many at long range. The Falcons led by four points at the half. Stout was unable to get ahead as the last period opened, the Falcon wall being unwilling to yield. When Haberman and Morrow were removed from the game by four fouls. Stout took advantage of the change and rallied to head the scoring by 3 points when the game ended. The final count was 17-20. RIVER FALLS 28. STEVENS POINT 36 A Highly developed Stevens Point team was taken on the evening after the Stout game. The road trip and the contest of the preceding night prevented River Falls from showing the highest brand of basketball. Morrow sank two shots from difficult angles, one coming soon after the other. Mack and Haberman counted for 3 baskets as Stevens Point led at the half. In the second half the Falcons were again outclassed by a brand of basketball that is hard to beat at any time. Morrow got two field goals, and Isaacson a field goal and two from the free throw stripe near the end of the game which Stevens Point took 36-28. RIVER FALLS 31, SUPERIOR 30 BASKETBALL fans saw a lot of good basketball in a close game which River Falls took from Superior by a 31-30 score. The typical contest of the two colleges began with the Falcons scoring on Schiesser’s free throw. The Yellow-jackets came back to tie the score, but went back to 10-4 with baskets by Schiesser, Kuss. and Morrow. The lead exchanged hands eight times during the second half. With less than a minute to play, Kuss sank a free throw and followed it up with a basket to get one point ahead.

Both teams came back fighting strong in the second period. Kuss and Morrow made it 16-17 and Isaccson tied the count with a free throw. La Crosse forged ahead soon afterward and held it during the rest of the game to win 31-25. The Falcons put through 7 of their 9 gift tosses during the contest. RIVER FALLS 42, STOUT 39 RATHER unusual playing was witnessed when Stout came to River Falls for a return game. The Falcons went wild and swamped the Blue Devils with baskets to make it 28-15. It was not until then that the Blue Devils really found themselves: they began to tighten their defense and started on a slow rally that left them only 3 points behind at the end of the game. The scoring spree in the first half was very smoothly played and indicated the team's powers. Kuss made 17 points and Isaacson followed with 11 for the game. RIVER FALLS 54, EAU CLAIRE 23 RIVER Falls had little trouble in winning over Eau Claire for the second time during the season. Kuss and Morrow each gathered four baskets in the first period: Isaacson. St. Peter, and McChesney added one basket apiece. The score was 28-10 at the half. St. Peter opened up the scoring in the second period with two field goals. With a large lead. Coach Cowles began to substitute freely.

The Falcons had great difficulty with their shooting: numerous tries were made at the basket, but the ball refused to go through. Isaacson and Kuss connected for 'two baskets apiece, while St. Peter and Morrow could only get one each in the first period. Superior was very little better, since the score was 17-15 at the half. Coming back strong in the second half, Superior started on a scoring spree, rolling up the points in rapid succession. Haugen and Collins were able to sink two nice long shots each soon after play was resumed. The Falcons refused to give up, but their fighting spirit could not help them overcome the substantial lead gained by the Yellow-jackets. River Falls’ points in the last half all came from the free throw line. The final score was 33-21 in favor of the Yellow jackets. RIVER FALLS 33, STEVENS POINT 36 THE last conference game of the season was played against the undefeated Stevens Point team. Prior to coming to River Falls, they had trounced the University of Wisconsin five, and were doped for an easy win. The Falcons outplayed them during the entire first half, scoring 10 points on field goals and 8 on free throws before the half. Stevens Point collected 14 during the same period, leaving them 4 points behind. In the second half things began to turn. The Pointers came back to play in championship style like that of their former v games. Krumn and Thompson began to do their stuff and slowly put their team ahead to win by three points. Isaacson came through with some real ball playing, sinking them at long range and breaking up passes. He was the most colorful man on the floor. The Falcons played real ball, showing polished form that they lacked at the beginning of the season. FRESHMAN ATHLETICS MEMBERS of the freshman football squad have been playing different types of football during their high school years. This gives the coach a very difficult problem in trying to make a well-balanced team. It is hoped that by the end of the year they will have acquired the ability to work together with the same type of play and be better fitted to play on the first team the following year. A very small squad responded to the call last fall. However, the group consisted of willing men who turned out for practice regularly. Four men on the squad had had no previous experience, but came along fast under Coach Helixon. Games were played with Macalester High. North High, and Red Wing Training School. River Falls. Hudson, and Roberts high schools were also scrimmaged. Those reporting for practice were: Harold White. Donald May. Irwin Christiansen. Fred Rietz. Wayne Wilcox. Lowell Frye. Elmer Fenske. Floyd Lind. Joseph Baker. William Dougherty, and Bernard Brekke. While the varsity was going through their paces, a squad of freshmen was practicing basketball under the direction of Coach Helixon. The greatest problem confronting the freshmen was that of becoming organized into a team consisting of players from other high schools. They have all been accustomed to the type of play taught in the high school from which they have graduated. Many extensive drills were necessary to shape them into a well-rounded team. Each week found them better ball handlers and showed great improvement in their floor work. Their improvement was usually tested by drilling against the Falcon squad. Their showing was very impressive against the varsity. High schools were also played during the season. Amery was defeated 19-30 on the college floor. The New Richmond Teacher Training team scored a 26-22 victory. Those playing on the freshman team were: Louis Kulas. Perry Luchsinger. Donald May. Paul Anderson. Joseph Baker. Clarence Leseman. Benjamin Vezina. Woodrow Bergner. Floyd Krause. John Linehan. Jay Holman. Bernard Brekke. William Dougherty. Harold Heiting. and Marlow Michelson. Oar hsittlirJ thirtT-iiiJun h n. SMcl, Fo»». Fniki.

Miracle, autcor BASEBALL THE squad that reported for baseball was composed very largely of members from last year's team. Claflin. Kotleski. Helixon. Mattson. Braun, and Kuss have been members of the team for more than one season. It was around these men that Cowles built his team for the season. The pitching staff was headed by Claflin and Woodward, with Braun coming from behind the plate at times to take the mound. Foss and Leseman were two newcomers to the pitching box and came through with good form. Joe Braun was usually found in the catcher’s place, with Baker and Luchsinger alternating at times. Haberman and Helixon took turns at first. Isaacson covered second, and Kotleski at third. Kulas also played third. The infield was completed with either Leseman or Pauls at shortstop. Mattson. Kuss. and Helixon were found in the outfield. They proved a very good combination in the garden, and were strong at the bat. Seidel and Compton did considerable fielding also, it being their first year of college competition. With very little practice, the Falcons won 8-5 in their first game against St. Olaf. The team showed up strong against a nine having more experience. Other games were played with Eau Claire and St. Cloud Teachers. St. Thomas. Concordia, and town teams near River Falls. Om hundred ihlitf'imaMINOR SPORTS THE athlelic program is worked out to meet the demands of the greatest number of students at River Falls. It has been arranged so all can take part in some form of sport during their college life. The program has been scheduled to have at least one type of game going on at all times. Tennis attracts more students than any other game. Six fine courts are maintained by the college on south campus. Two concrete courts have been added during the last year and are equipped with large flood lights to permit their use at night. The other courts are kept in good condition during the tennis season. A college contest and tournaments with neighboring colleges are held every year. The courts were being used as early as March 5 this year. Students interested in golf are very fortunate in having a good course near River Falls. Those attending school are given reduced rates during the academic year. This year the course, located on the mounds east of the city, has been changed considerably. Local tournaments and tournaments with other schools are held every spring. Swimming has become a favorite sport with most students. Swimming meets are held with other state colleges located nearby. The class swimming meet held every year always attracts much attention. This year the juniors gathered the most points in the contest. At the close of the spring baseball season, the kittenball diamonds become popular. House teams are formed and lively contests result. It gives the students a last chance to show their athletic ability to the public before going home for the summer.Berg. Bouncy, Brugttud, Btpeieih. Punk, Howard Howe. Ingham. A- Johnion. G.

The organization opens its membership to all girls in school who express their desire to align themselves with the purpose of the association. In order to prove themselves active and worthy of recognition, prospective members ___________________________are required to earn twenty-five points before the second meeting of the association. The organization has at its head the executive council, which is composed of the officers, the sport heads, and the advisor. The officers for the first semester were: Frances Amundson, president: Winifred Kahut. vice-president: Grace Schwalen. secretary; Ella Polgar, treasurer; and Lois Bragstad. recording secretary. The sport heads are: Elizabeth Bonney, hockey; Irma Polgar. soccer: Helen Stewart, basketball: Lorraine Howe, volleyball; and Wini- ________________ fred Kahut, baseball.

Zbn THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Tun goal of all the members is to fulfill the purpose that is set before them. This purpose is. "To encourage participation of all girls in school in physical activity: to recognize ability of girls in organized sports, to further abidance by the rules of personal hygiene: to further interest in topics bearing on women's activities and sports: to promote and further and support worthwhile school activities: and to foster the spirit of good sportsmanship in all interscholastic and interclass projects." The two important yearly events in every member’s life are the spring outing and Playday. Playday is rather a new event in the history of our organization. Its success last year has furnished an incentive for its continuance this year. Frances amunwos Lilian gaustad Oh hundred forcy-oneS hn«id«(. Amundion. Motion. Sm«d.

"Libby" Bonney. acting as sports head, aroused plenty of enthusiasm, and thirty girls came out for the first practice. This year a field for hockey was marked off on the campus behind South Hall. This made playing much easier, and less time was wasted in designating temporary goals. The first few practices were spent in learning the rules and various plays of the game. After we had become acquainted with our positions, the following few meetings were spent in practice games. This led up to the most important event of the hockey season, the tournament. The girls were divided into four color teams, each team playing a series of games. Equipment is one of the essential things in a game of hockey. Last year our equipment consisted of sticks and hockey balls. The material was there, and all we had to do was use it. Toward the end of the season, however, there was a plea for protection. Hockey sticks had often gone astray, and as a result there were many battered shins. At the beginning of this year’s season guards were bought for the players, and any girl could look a hockey stick straight in the face without a shudder of pain. Those earning honor points in hockey were: Elizabeth Bonney. Marie Morton, Frances Amundson, Alice Smead. Dorothy Kanne, Dorothy Schneider, Marie Klugow, Grace Schwalen, Ruth Lindh, Mercedes Peabody, and Irma Polgar. One hundred foiiy-iwoSOCCER SOCCER is not a very popular game among the students: consequently, there was a very small turn out. When the season opened, there were about thirty students present, but the number gradually decreased until there were only about twelve. There were seven practice games and two tournament games Silayed during the season. The players drew sides. Numbers one and two ormed the Blues and three and four the Reds. The first game in the tournament resulted in a tie. the score being one to one. The second game, the one that decided the championship, resulted in a victory for the Reds. Those receiving squad points were as follows: Helen Stewart. Vivian Ingham. Grace Olson. Winifred Kahut. Elizabeth Bonney. Shirley Severson. Louise Hanson. Clara Severson. Marie Morton. Irma Polgar. Mercedes Peabody. Marie Klugow. Alice Smead. and Lilian Gaustad. The most important feature of the game is that no player except the goal keeper is allowed to use his hands. This rule, however, was violated frequently but unintentionally by the players. Good sportsmanship was shown by all the players, and there was no rough playing between the teams. The aim throughout was to have fun and learn the technique of soccer. Oat faanJrf J (ortT-thrttS k lki. Amundson. Kabul. li|Ul Klafow, Bonner- Sicwjri. Koiu. Pop BASKETBALL THE girls' basketball season of 1932-1933 proved to be a very great success. This was partly due to the fact that about forty girls took part in the activity. Basketball has always been regarded as the most exciting and most enjoyable sport of the school year. There was an unusual amount of good sportsmanship exhibited in this year's tournaments. Previous to the tournaments, the girls had a great deal of practice in pivoting, passing, and different plays. The first tournament consisted of five teams which were: Southern California. Wisconsin. Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Cornell. Out of the ten games played between the five teams, Notre Dame won four, which gave that team the championship. The second tournament was composed of four teams. These teams played only three games to decide the winner. The teams had as their captains, Elizabeth Bonney, Lilian Gaustad, Charlotte Pope, and Winifred Kahut. “Winnie's" team was the winner of the tournament. The girls all showed a splendid spirit of co-operation and enthusiasm throughout both of the tournaments. Such a spirit should be carried on in all sports and contests which take place during the school year. On bandied fony.fourPoWr. NcH©=. -Mo.'to . Gioitad. Jobawa. PolRir Serenes. Eipndb.

Seven regular practices were held, and the last practice was devoted to three tournament games. For the tournament the group was divided into two teams. These teams were very evenly matched, as is shown by the results of the three games. Team 1. which won two of the three games, was the winner of the tournament: however, each game was won by a very narrow margin. The season was a great success due to the number of girls participating in this sport and to the enthusiasm and good sportsmanship which was shown by them. Those girls who attended at least half of the practices received twenty-five squad points. They are the following: Lois Espcseth, Louise Hanson. Blanche Harding, Lorraine Howe. Martha Inglis, Gladys Johnson, Gertrude Kirchmeier. Doris Nelson, Doris Ostby, Mercedes Peabody, Gladys Peterson. Kathryn Krebsbach. Irma Polgar. Charlotte Pope, Hazel Probst, Edith Peabody. Hermina Schmutz. Grace Schwalen. Shirley Severson, Alice Smead. Marie Klugow, and Lilian Gaustad. One bandied forty .fivePLAYDAY THE annual Playday which is sponsored by the W. A. A. was attended by four representatives with their advisors from the following nine high schools in this district: River Falls, Ellsworth. Hudson. Maiden Rock. Prescott, Amery. New Richmond, and Hammond. After the registration at nine o’clock the groups were taken on a tour through the two buildings. The rest of the day was spent as follows: group singing and a get-together, kittenball tournament, taking of pictures, lunch, mass volleyball, and swimming. During the lunch hour a short program was given. Helen Stewart sang a solo: Agnes Klep played a violin solo; and Lilian Gaustad gave a number of short readings. An added feature of the day was the entertainment furnished by Miss Fiedler’s tumbling class. Playday is not a competitive contest between high schools, as the girls are divided into color teams instead of school groups. The motive is merely to sponsor school spirit and promote interest in the school and our organization. The girls also learn through this to co-operate and learn how to take part in a program of games. One hundred forty-iixu s vmHnlov. McCully. Alrundcr. Simpion, Rismittrn Waller. Swrnion. Catlap.

Recently enlarged so as to offer a minor in music, it has become outstanding in the field of college activities. Besides providing the students with excellent musical instruction, it furnishes the college with culture and entertainment. With Professor Marvin D. Geere. director of music, as voice instructor, the department can boast of the best in singing. Professor Geere is an American singer of unusual brilliance. He possesses a rich baritone voice of velvety smoothness, with a range covering two and a half octaves, and an especially splendid voice production, which he acquired under the able instruction of some of our greatest teachers of singing both in this country and Europe. Another musician whose services River Falls is fortunate in obtaining is Miss Cara Wharton, a pianist well-known in the Northwest. As a teacher of technique. Miss Wharton excels in piano and organ, while, as a teacher of music theory, harmony, and counterpoint, she offers unusual opportunities. Prof. B. J. Rozehnal, head of the instrumental department, has advanced this department to the point where it is now one of the best in the state. Not only is he an outstanding instrumental soloist, but also a music director and coach of great ability. His professional experience and study abroad and in the Northwest offer unusual opportunities in this field. Under the direction of the department several outstanding musical groups are maintained. The mixed chorus is composed of sixty-five voices, so arranged as to make it most splendidly balanced. Professor Geere, with his mastery of vocal technic and interpretation, has made the chorus an organization that has won marked recognition. MARVIN D. GEERE Oh hun li«l foiiy-fis1 !WOMEN'S GLEE CLUB TMF. women of the college have the opportunity of developing their voices in a splendidly balanced Women’s Glee Club. Under the able and efficient leadership of Miss Cara Wharton, this organization has had a most successful year. Fifty-one voices harmonize to produce music that is almost an art. They showed mastery of interpretation and their singing was appealing both to the intelligence and to the heart. Christmas carols for our Christmas Program and special numbers for Y. W. C. A. and assembly meetings were among their featured performances. Selections by student soloists in the Women’s Glee Club added to the wonderful performances and laurels that this organization has won. Special training in music reading and choral work is given by Miss Wharton to the personnel of this group. This makes it more possible for the individual members to be not only successful soloists, but directors of similar glee clubs. PERSONNEL MBS WHARTON.

During the past year great strides have been taken under the efficient directorship of Professor Rozehnal. The entire organization has been reorganized into a well-balanced band of fifty-six members, each of whom is a capable performer on his own instrument. New marching formations, directed by Phyllis Glass, the student drum major, were featured at the fall football contests and other campus functions. With such spirited music and decorative marching the band thrilled its spectators. An admirable spirit exists among the men and women who make up this organization. The hearty co-operation of the board and the faculty has doubtless been a contributing cause to this fine spirit. It was their efforts that helped make possible the band's most successful season. Outstanding events for the band this year were the colorful and spirited performances during Homecoming and a trip to the football game at La Crosse. B. J.

A special concert was given during the annual music contest, after which the band led the high school bands on parade. April 22 the concert band broadcast a half hour program over KSTP. PEP BAND AT pep meetings and basketball games strains of spirited and martial music help develop the atmosphere and pep that is so characteristic of our college basketball games during the winter months. Eighteen musicians make up the personnel of this band which was organized by Professor Rozehnal this year. GIRLS BAND ANEW organization in the music department has been sponsored by Professor Rozehnal this year, which is open only to the young women of the college. This organization is known as the girls band and is composed of eighteen musicians. Although it has made but one public appearance this year at a college basketball game, it has proven its worth as an organization to promote and develop interest in music in the college.

Extensive training in conducting, directing, coaching, teaching, fundamentals, and technique is offered in that laboratory. The Junior High School Orchestra, organized last year with an enrollment of eighteen, now has an enrollment of thirty. Under the direction of Albert Schulze this organization won first place in class C in the River Falls music contest in competition with high schools. The Junior High School Band, organized this year with an enrollment of thirty-six and under the direction of Leland Standi ford, won first place in the music contest. A grade school orchestra also offers much training in this instrumental department.

Bob Smith Margaret Burkholder . .Gwen Dopkins ......Ftoyce Newell ......Glenn Gallop ......Horace Merrill . . . Pauline Isaacson Mr. Pim Passes By" was a bubbling comedy of good natural satire directed toward the typical conservative Englishman. The first act opened with George Marden. British husband, denouncing his niece's prospective fiance for his socialistic political views and his modernistic paintings. The absent-minded Mr. Pim. however, soon divorces him from his confidence by a vague tale which establishes Olivia Marden as a bigamist with a convict husband living in Australia. George is overcome with the impropriety of his position and talks wildly to Olivia of divorce and a second marriage. Olivia, realizing the seriousness with which George regards the situation, exaggerates the unlawfulness of their position and by subtle blackmail induces George to give his consent to the marriage of Dinah and Brian. Mr. Pim. meanwhile, discloses to Olivia the fact that his story was wholly unauthentic. but since the news serves her cause, she shyly keeps it to herself. One hundred fifty-tix"Give it to me.

St. John's University..........................Here ANOTHER successful forensic year has been concluded by the members of the River Falls debate teams. We did not win the state championship, but we did win the good fellowship of the schools in the Northwest. At the beginning of the season twenty-five people responded to Coach Wyman's call for candidates for the 1933 debate teams. Out of this number only two were left from the regular last year’s squad. Among the students who responded to the pre-season debates were: Buske, Libakken. Mason. Forsyth. Pedersen. Campbell. Smith. Dcringer. McDermott, Thoreson, Pflanz, Johnson. Brunner. Borgen, Nelson, McCabe, Paulson. Forsyth. Sather. Runte, Christensen, Parish. Vruwink, and Mathieson. The group was divided into several teams of three each, and practice debates were held several times a week for a period of about two weeks. During this part of the season the question used for debate was Resolved. "That the United States Should Pay the Soldiers Bonus Immediately.” A debate was held with the New Richmond High School on this question, with Thorvald Thoreson. Laddie McDermott, and Leslie Libakken upholding the negative side, and Morris Buske. James Deringer, and Elaine Forsyth upholding the affirmative side. After a series of elimination debates. Mr. Wyman picked Elaine Forsyth. James Mason. Dagmar Pedersen. James Deringer. La Verne Campbell. Joan Smith. Laddie McDermott. Morris Buske. and Leslie Libakken for the first squad debaters. A period of about a week was then devoted to intensive study of the conference question. Resolved: "That the United States should agree to the immediate cancellation of the inter-allied war debts." We were very sorry at this time to lose Laddie McDermott from the squad. The little time that Laddie was with the debate team she showed her worth and it was with great regret that we learned she would not be able to return to school during the present year. This year a new system of debating was inaugurated at River Falls. Instead of the regular three men debate teams of the past, the Teachers College Forensic Board decided to us the Phi Kappa Delta system which calls for two men teams, with ten minute constructive and five minute rebuttal speeches for each speaker, in place of the twelve minute constructive and three minute rebuttals of the former system.

Lost St. Thomas College....................................Lost Hastings College..................................... Lost THE purpose of this new system of debate is two-fold: first, under the o system the debate tended to become rather tiresome to the audience a ter listening to three speakers on each side. This is remedied in the new system by having only two speakers to a side. The second reason for its adoption is because it is more adaptable to contest competition in that the time is shorter and irrelevant material is left out of the debate. This year, for the first time, we made use of the material at the Hill Library in St. Paul. The debate team made several trips to the library and on two occasions spent the full day there. The first debating of any importance this year was the St. Thomas College Phi Kappa Delta Tournament beginning February 28 and continuing through to March 3. The question for debate was Resolved: "That the United States should agree to the immediate cancellation of all inter-allied war debts. In the tournament River Falls entered James Mason and Elaine Forsyth, as team number one. and Leslie Libakken and Morris Buske as team number two. I he order of debating was decided by lot and as often as possible the teams alternated from affirmative to negative in each succeeding debate. This not only made the tournament more interesting but it brought out the true value of debating and of the speakers involved. Team number one was eliminated in the seventh round of the tournament, while team number two was vanquished in the eighth round. At the end of the sixth round River Falls was one of the two schools that still had two teams left in the tournament. In this tournament River Falls was defeated in their last debates by Hastings College and St. Thomas College, the winners of the first and second honors. It is also interesting to note that River Falls defeated the two teams that went into the quarter finals for third and fifth places. These teams were the University of South Dakota and Nebraska Wesleyan. There were 56 teams, representing colleges and universities from six states, at this convention. Out of the 56. River Falls team number two was one of the last ten in the tournament.

The tournament was held in the same manner as the one at St. Thomas. During the first five rounds each school debated every other school in the contest. The River Falls “B” team, composed of Morris Buske and Leslie Libakken. was eliminated in the seventh round by Stevens Point, while James Mason and Elaine Forsyth were defeated in the eighth round by Platteville. By virtue of their victory River Falls placed third in the state. This being the year for River Falls to have the presidency of the State Teachers College Forensic League. Morris Buske was selected to fill that position. This year's debate program has been one of the most ambitious attempted by a River Falls squad. Deviating from the set-case style of debating, the entire squad was held to purely extemporaneous work. This was by far the outstanding feature of the year's work, all credit being due to Mr. Wyman. This being Mr. Wyman’s first year here, he was handicapped to a great extent, but by putting into his work not only his ability but his attractive personality he overcame his handicap and won the respect and admiration of every debater on the team.

There was an unusual amount of enthusiasm shown in the second squad debates this year: out of the ten that started the season, eight debated until the finish. As in the past, the second team debated the same question that was used by the Wisconsin High School Forensic League. The question for debate this year was Resolved: “That at least one-half of all state and local revenue be raised from sources other than taxes on tangible property.” The second team started out their season with a series of practice debates among themselves. After about two weeks of practice, we held our first debate with New Richmond High School. This was a non-decision debate, as were all the debates entered into by the second team this year. The next debate we engaged in was with the Baldwin High School. This ended the home debates held in competition with other schools. Two trips were taken by the second team this year. The first trip included return debates with the Baldwin and the New Richmond High Schools. The second trip was made by seven debaters, who debated in Menomonie on the afternoon of February 10. and in the evening at Chippewa Falls. At both of these schools, both sides of the question were debated. A series of debates was also held with the River Falls High School. The second teams made excellent showings in all their debates throughout the season. As a result of the experience gained by actual participation, they should prove valuable members of the first squad next year.

Kocu THE STUDENT SOCIAL COMMITTEE REPRESENTING the four classes for the school year of 1932-1933 on the Student Social Committee were: seniors— Wilfred Heiting. Edwin Warwick, and Evelyn Volla: juniors—Allen Hocking. Marjorie Gallup, and Esther Reinke: sophomores—Doris Sheila. Elaine Brunner, and Omcr Simpson: freshmen—Helen Kotts, Dean Enloe, and Dorothy Lunger. At the first meeting Edwin Warwick was chosen chairman and Elaine Brunner treasurer. Beginning with the all-school mixer the committee undertook to continue the policy of the previous Social Committees by having a dance as often as possible. Celebrating our victory at the Homecoming dance with lively music, confetti, and noisemakers was the next biggest event on the year's amusement program. Throughout the year the dances were well attended, enabling the group to schedule two free dances besides the masquerade. Matinee dances also helped pass some winter afternoons. Especially were the dances after basketball games enthusiastically welcomed by the student body. Furthermore, they afforded an excellent opportunity for River Falls to continue her hospitable reception and entertainment policy toward the followers of the rival teams. In keeping with the times one of the features of the year was the Bank Holiday party which, despite the circumstances which brought it about, proved to be one of the jollicst and best received by students week-ending here. Along the same line came the masquerade as a climax to the winter season. To be a bit different and yet to be strictly in tunc with the times this was made a "hard time" affair. No one had trouble finding clothes appropriate, so it was a multifarious and gay crowd who made this an extraordinarily gala event. Om handi.'l cigbir-MVcaTHE YOUNG MEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION THE work of the Y. M. C. A. in the past year has been conducive to some stimulative thought and activity. A new plan of organization was tried, aiming toward every member participation. Each cabinet member with the exception of two was the head of a committee. Members outside the cabinet were given opportunity to join with others in carrying out some particular project. Complete success was not achieved, but with some revision the plan will be continued next year. A delegation of five men. including our advisor, was sent to the Y. M. C. A. conference at College Camp. Wisconsin, last spring. Those attending were Carl Wolf. David Johnston. Raymond Swanson. John Thompson, and Advisor Jacobson. They reported an inspiring eight days. Several cabinet meetings were held during the summer session. This gave the group an early start toward program planning. Karl Korting and Walter Hagestad found it necessary to leave the cabinet in the fall because of attendance at other schools. While making the drive for members in the fall, the purpose of the organization was emphasized. A membership of one hundred and twenty-six men was reported and a larger number than usual were considered active. Jjcobion. Fry . Pfiuk. Dzebjy Buikf. CUpp. Donut.

Committees were being formed and the advisor and president were continually busy meeting the groups. Many appreciative words were spoken concerning the high calibre of the Tuesday evening meetings. With the aid of a questionnaire the meetings were planned by a separate committee. There was an average attendance of nearly fifty men. Our male quartette has appeared on many public occasions in addition to appearance on our own programs. The social committee has done well. The Christmas party for younger boys was a new venture and will surely be continued next year. The fellowship supper, stag and joint meetings were well attended. A series of discussion groups was carried on in February and March. Our campus service group co-operated with the dean of men in locating the sick and the needy. A beautiful piece of furniture has just been placed in the Men's Union under the direction of the Men's Union group. The cabinet for next year was elected by popular vote and it elected its own officers. A large delegation was sent to Lake Independence for the joint conference and a small group will be sent to Geneva, if finances allow. Juttit. Johntlon. Monritr. Oludil Swanson. Prill. Junchrn.

The purpose of the Y. W. C. A. is twofold: realization of a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. and participation in making this life possible for all people. During this school year, an effort was made to reach as many girls as possible. In accordance with this objective, the program has been extremely varied. It has included social events, devotional services. and programs of cultural value. The outstanding devotional services of this year were the Candle Light service, and the Christmas and the Easter services. The meeting at which new members are admitted to the association is known as the Candle Light service. At this time the new girls receive lighted candles from the members and formally pledge themselves to the purpose of the Y. W. C. A. Both the Easter and the Christmas services were dramatic services sponsored jointly by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. At the Christmas meeting a play entitled “Peace on Earth” was presented. Other programs of a devotional nature included the initial service of the year, the theme of which was friendship, and a joint devotional service with the Y. M. C. A. IRMA HATHORK Rob ilium. GU« .

At the beginning of the year, an effort is made to reach the freshmen girls in order to make them feel at home in River Falls. With this end in view, the “Y” sponsored what is known as the "Big and Little Sister Movement.” The present members, acting as "big sisters." are each assigned a "little sister" from the freshman group. It is the duty of the “big sister” to befriend the newcomer and to take her to the "Little Sister” tea and the all-school mixer. The Christmas party was one of the high points of this year's social activities. On this occasion we had as our guests two foreign students, a girl from France, and one from Hungary, who talked about Christmas customs and traditions in their native lands. The Y. W. C. A. at River Falls has been in direct contact with the national movement at all times. Evelyn Volla has acted as a member of the Council for the Geneva region. Miss Alice Brown. National Student Secretary, visited our campus for two days this spring. The culmination of each year’s program and one of the goals toward which every "Y” member aspires is the summer conference at Lake Geneva. Last summer the River Falls delegation was made up of Evelyn Volla. Ruth Robinson, Helen Glass, and Dagmar Pedersen.

It also gives one training in organizing programs. 4-H Clubs. Future Farmers of America, and various other farm clubs. The Agriculture Department was organized seven years ago. and it now has an enrollment of eighty-eight. It is for the purpose of training Smith-Hughes teachers, but it has a twofold purpose, as on completion of the course its members are granted a general teachers license. All members passed on by the State Board of Vocational Education are granted a B.E. Degree. Officers of the organization arc elected twice yearly. Seniors arc usually given this responsibility. During the first half of the year. Raymond Wall was president. Willard Stone vice-president. Irving Gerhardt secretary, and Rudolph Christiansen treasurer. The last half Irving Gerhardt was president, Gerhardt Christiansen vice-president. Olaf Pederson secretary, and Rudolph Christiansen treasurer. ARTHUR N. JOHNSON Amundson, Baker, Berg. Brrgeman.

In addition to the regular meetings, the annual Ag-Rural Life dance was held just after Christmas. Arnie Kuss and His Royal Raymond wall imvggmhardt Badgers furnished the music. This year the society is sponsoring "Field Day." This is a day made up of demonstrations, exhibits, etc., for the benefit of the surrounding high schools. Leland Standiford was appointed general chairman, and with the assistance of the senior class, coached the boys of the River Falls High School in putting on the program of demonstrations.

This past year the enrollment totaled thirty-eight members. The motive of the organization is to give parliamentary and community club practice admirable in a deliberate assembly. The members assemble bi-monthly for an evening of entertainment, discussion, and informal training that tends to promote interest in their respective rural schools as well as to develop leadership in their community life. Frequently the members were entertained. in addition to the regular business meeting, by readings, addresses, debates, and plays presented by club members. Mr. Stratton gave an illustrated lecture early in the year, and Miss Dasher recited poetry at a later date. The most outstanding and no doubt the most interesting diversion from college routine came when these students were allotted rural schools where they observed, practiced, and co-operated with the pupils and teacher in an effort to gain learning by actual experience. Clara Severson was appointed chairman of the Homecoming committee that developed a float representing a large football. MABIII. JORSTAD Anderson. Barber. Elsie Bartlett. Esther Bartlett.

William Lover had been selected last spring to act as president, while the vice-presidency was filled by Leslie Libakken: Joyce Heidbrink acted as secretary and Vernon Peroutky as treasurer. Since the club has always been more active than social in function, the highest enthusiasm has been shown in dramatic productions of all kinds. "A Successful Calamity." a clever picture of riches and poverty, was given in the fall of this year with great success. This was the annual benefit play and it always draws a large audience. The one-act plays were handled this year under student direction, with Miss Schlosser supervising the work. This type of thing is largely an experiment in the club, but the results produced so far indicate that student coaching is both popular and profitable. The directors are especially benefited, since they are given an opportunity to complete their first production under excellent supervision. In this group, four plays. "Suppressed Desires." "Grandma Pulls the Strings.” "Wedding Presents.” and "The Clod," were given as a single evening entertainment. "Rondo” was offered in a college assembly program, while the remaining play. “The Robbery" was given before the regular organization. Nl-I.I.H L. SCHLOSSEK Bly. Brunner. Burke, Campbell.

Special care has been taken in planning for these evening programs that they may be both educational and entertaining. The type of thing presented upon these occasions varies widely all the way from short, amusing skits to formal talks on subjects in the outside dramatic world. It was through organization facilities also that a large number of members were able to see the St. Paul production of the political satire. "Of Thee I Sing." Not all of the club activities, however, are as serious in character: social life plays prominently in the organization. At the beginning of the fall term, new members were acquainted with their fellow club people at an informal card party and dance held in the South Hall gymnasium. The formal, the second one of its kind, was of course the biggest social event of the year. One of the largest crowds of the year turned out to attend this dance, which was held in North Hall gymnasium. It has been mentioned as one of the most enjoyable dances of the year. Several play casts have been entertained at dinner in town. At present the group is planning an outdoor supper for the purpose of electing the new officers for next year and making any changes in the organization which seem advisable. Kotli. I.areon.

P., "Girls on Promotion.” or “Girls of Pep.” has continued to merit its title this year. Pledges were selected from the ranks of sophomores, juniors, and seniors to fill the depletion caused by alumnae. The organization sponsored a series of programs based on the arts, music, painting, drama, literature, and travel. The value of these programs has been immeasurable. The regular evening for meeting. Thursday, has found the Social Room filled with delighted G. O. P. members who anxiously anticipate another entertaining and enlightening evening. Two of the most pleasant annual affairs of the year are the Homecoming banquet and the Spring luncheon held Commencement week. At both occasions there is a large group of alumnae members back, and the program results in reminiscing. ALBERTA GREENE Amundson. Bly. Bragstad. Brunner. Demulling Fulfil, Ford. Gallop, Gitlind.

P. has done much to attend en masse all athletic features, that they might furnish a nucleus for the ”pep” displays. The float decorated by the organization for the Homecoming parade was a piece of art in itself. They have indeed been fortunate in having a leader such as Evelyn Volla. an advisor such as Miss Greene. The G. O. P. Formal given February 4 was one of the most elaborately planned and exclusive functions ever given in this school. The decorations were simple but attractive. The function was well attended and most enjoyable. In the spring the annual picnic is held. This year the group motored to Prospect Park, one of the most scenic spots in Hudson. They were accompanied by Miss Greene. Miss Bran-stad. and Miss Gibson. Other than the eats, a baseball game was the main attraction. The G. O. P. aims to sponsor pep. good sportsmanship, and commendable scholarship. May the organization always live and thrive! Evelyn volla Mather. Pedmon. Phillip . Pol gar. Quintan Reinke. Roblnion.

It is composed of people who are interested in art and offers the same opportunities for these people that the Masquers Society affords people interested in dramatics. The Palette Club was organized September 27. 1932. It was organized to foster and inspire artistic creative ability in its members and to make us better appreciate the artistic side of life. We meet the second and fourth Wednesday in each month. Our membership is limited, due to the facilities offered. We chose Miss Greene, head of the art department, as our advisor. She is herself an inspiration and has contributed much to make the organization a success. Our advisor has made it instructive as well as entertaining and interesting. i R um y i □ i i f n % Q m II ii Robinton, llencilici. Campbell, lltnton, llcliinii. Melntyie. Mather Peabody.

Some of the meetings were for study, when we learned about some of the modern illustrators: other meetings have been given over to work, and each individual did the thing in which he was most interested. Some of the types of work done consisted of sculpturing, leather work, lettering, designing, posters. Christmas cards and pen and ink work. In the spring our interests changed to the out-of-doors, and we left after school to do outdoor sketching and then cook our supper. These meetings proved to be interesting and profitable. The Palette Club has made a good beginning and will take its place among the outstanding worth while organizations before long.
