Gee re B. J. Rozehnal Cara Wharton MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS STUDENTS of the college interested in participating in either vocal or instrumental music find opportunities to express such interests in one or more of the various musical organizations. Most apparent of these is the marching band under the direction of Mr. Rozehnal. The marching unit of forty members, a drum major, two baton twirlers, two herald trumpeters, and a field officer is selected from the men in the concert band and others who care to participate. All members make at least one marching appearance in public, generally at football games. This year the annual trip with the football team was made to Eau Claire. This group also marches for the Homecoming parade, snake dance, and musical festival. As membership in the concert band is limited by both numbers and the type of instrument played, Mr. Rozehnal selects the new members according to musical ability and instrumentation. This band proposes to acquaint its members with as many classical and modern musical numbers in band arrangement as possible and to develop a greater appreciation for music. Concerts this year were given on Dad’s Day, on Mother’s Day, at an assembly program and the annual spring concert in the college auditorium. Outside concerts were given at Ellsworth and Cumberland. It also rendered music at the Rural Fair program and the Homecoming mass meeting. The final appearance of the year was the open air concert given on South Hall campus Sunday afternoon, June 2, in honor of the graduating class. The second band is composed of freshmen who are in the concert band and others who are interested in band work. Vacancies in the concert band arc largely filled by members in this group. The pep band, which played at the basket ball games and at pep meetings, is composed mainly of second band members. This year has been one of the most active in the history of the orchestra as conducted by Mr. Rozehnal. Outstanding events were the assembly concerts in the college auditorium and at the college at La Crosse. The orchestra performed at plays, the Christmas program, the music festival, the Commencement program, and the Honor Assembly. Social events of the bands and orchestra included a skiing and sliding party, a banquet and dance. A minor letter in music was presented to each member who completed the first term of the third year in either the band or orchestra. Each year Mr. Gee re, director of vocal music, selects new members to the A Cappella Chorus. This group gave two concerts, one at a regular assembly hour and the other at the River Falls High School. It also sang for the Christmas program, Baccalaureate service, and the Commencement processional. From this group was selected the concert company which made appearances at Ellsworth, the University of Minnesota, New Richmond, and at an assembly program. The quartets and soloists are also selected from the chorus. The Women's Chorus, directed by Miss Wharton, furnishes an opportunity to all girls who wish to sing and become acquainted with music suitable for chorus work. The chorus sang a group of numbers in the Christmas concert, one with the orchestra, and in May during National Music Week appeared in an ensemble program given by Miss Wharton. 100Stamstad, Chapman, Grunke, Aamodt.

The new members of the club are selected by a series of tryouts before a Board of Admissions and they are expected to have a scholastic average of at least a "C” before they can become members. Activities for the year were started by the traditional initiation of new members. The social highlight of the year was the Christmas formal, which proved to be a success. Throughout the year there have been several social events for the Masquer members besides their regular meetings. These were climaxed in the spring by a banquet at which the officers for the following year were elected. By way of furthering the interests of the organization in dramatics, the Masquers chartered a bus to the Lyceum Theater in Minneapolis to sec Maurice Evans in Hamlet. Later in the spring they were also given a chance to see Raymond Massey in Abe Lincoln in Illinois. Other members of the student body were given an opportunity to attend these plays with the Masquers. In the fall Miss Schlosscr coached a three-act play—Moliere’s The Imaginary Invalid. This was the first classic staged by the Masquers in several years. The play was a French comedy of the seventeenth century and was well produced. The leading characters were taken by Joyce Beardsley and James Grunkc. This play gave members of the Masquers a chance to work on costuming. A committee, which consisted of Anna Mae Gilham, Marjorie Dahlquist, and Violet Smith, was selected to make and fit the costumes for the characters. Later in the year the members selected and directed four one-act plays in order to give additional experience in play production. These plays, coached by June Johnson, Dana Rasmus, Virginia Griffith and Marlys Lowe, were judged and criticized by Miss Schlosser before they were presented to the public. They were well attended and proved to be a financial success. Nell© L.

In these various events twenty-three students took part. The debate season opened on November 6, 1939, when Jack Osborne and Martin Lucente met two Englishmen representing Manchester and Liverpool Universities. The subject was of vital interest—"Resolved: That the United States should adopt strict isolation as its foreign policy.” Mr. Osborne and Mr. Lucente upheld the affirmative. The debate question for the remainder of the season was much the same as that for the international debate. The field and general purpose were the same, but the wording was altered, limiting the question in some degree. The proposition was—"Resolved: That the United States should follow a policy of strict (economic and military) isolation toward all nations outside the Western Hemisphere engaged in armed international or civil conflict. River Falls debaters took part in six debate tournaments. On January 20 five teams went to the Eau Claire tournament. The Red River Valley tournament held at Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota, engaged the attention of two men’s teams (Osbome-Lucente and Prucha-Jackman) for three days, February 8, 9, and 10. Osborne and Lucente lost only one out of six debates and according to judges’ ratings had harder competition than any other team there. Prucha and Jackman won six out of six of the preliminary rounds but lost to South Dakota University in the quarter-finals. River Falls won the women’s division of the Stevens Point tournament, held February 22 to 24. Kramschuster and Raawe, participating for the first year in college debate, were the only women’s team to win 7 out of 8 debates. No men from River Falls went to Stevens Point, but Webb, Selvig, and Chubb also took part. One of the most important debate tournaments in the United States is the Northwest Tournament held each year at St. Thomas and St. Catherine Colleges in St. Paul. River Falls entered three teams, two men’s and one women’s, in this contest. Prucha-Jackman and Osbome-Lucente participated at St. Thomas; Kramschuster-Raawe entered at St. Catherine’s. Dolores Kramschuster became ill after the second round of debate and was replaced for the rest of the rounds by Lois Webb. Walker D. Wyman Helen LoebChapman, Glanzman, Meacham, Martin, Chubb Seivig, Webb, Otis, Wurtz, Downing, Wood Fogerty. Bents, Rasmus, Winton, Hill, Annett DEBATE EACH year River Falls sponsors a tournament open to all teams who did not participate at St. Thomas or St. Catherine. This so-called "B” tournament gives experience to those teams who were not able to enter the Northwest Tournament. River Falls entered six men’s teams in this year’s event. Meacham and Martin were the only single team to win all their debates, although a team from Eau Claire with four persons alternating, also won all their debates. Glanzman and Chapman won three out of four debates to tie for third place. The climax of the debate season, at least for four members of the squad, was the National Pi Kappa Delta Convention at Knoxville, Tennessee on March 25 to 29. Prucha, Jackman, Luccnte and Osborne made the trip with Miss Loeb. Prucha and Lucente took part in debates, meeting teams from Minnesota, Illinois, Kentucky, Idaho, South Dakota, and Maine. Luccnte entered in extempore speaking and Jackman in oratory. Perhaps the most interesting part of the convention was the Student Legislative Assembly, in which Osborne and Jackman took part. This one-house legislature composed of delegates from Pi Kappa Delta Chapters throughout the nation elected its officers, was divided into committees, introduced, debated, and passed bills; in fact, was a miniature Congress. Osborne introduced and sponsored a bill to abolish all interstate toll bridges. Both Jackman and Osborne served on various committees, Jackman being chairman of the Labor Committee. The third phase of debate consisted of non-decision debates with near-by schools. Our teams met St. Thomas, St. Olaf, Macalester, Hamline, St. Catherine, and Augsburg teams at their respective schools and Eau Claire, Hamlinc, St. Olaf, and Stevens Point at River Falls. Dr. Walker D. Wyman and Miss Helen Loeb assisted the debaters throughout the season.Osborn© Jackman Prucha Lucent© PI KAPPA DELTA "k EMBERSHIP is granted in the Pi Kappa Delta in four degrees according to the forensic activity of the applicant.

The Golden Gusties, with one game behind them, defeated the lighter, inexperienced Falcons 19-0. Only the fine fighting spirit of the Falcons kept the Gusties from winning by a larger margin. Russell Buckley, captain and speedy left halfback of the Gusties, scored the three touchdowns. Outstanding in the game for the Falcons was the fine punting of Trecker, which repeatedly stood off touchdown marches, and the fine defensive play of Diermeier backing up the line and Trecker from his halfback position. The Falcons opened their 1939 home football season on Saturday, September 30, by defeating the strong, fast Stevens Point Teachers 10-7. The tilt was scoreless until, in the third quarter, a long pass, Trenkel to Fritch, connected for their lone touchdown. The extra point was then added to make the score 7-0. River Falls also tallied in thq third quarter on a series of long gains by Trecker and Vandcberg and a plunge by Vandeberg for the score. Dubbe’s try for point was good and the score stood 7-7. The game was climaxed and won in the lasr five seconds when Dubbe dropped back to the forty-fivc-yard line and booted a perfect place kick between the uprights to give the Falcons a 10-7 victory. The entire team played good ball but Trecker, Vandeberg and Schulcnbcrg were outstanding for the day. The Falcons ended their 1939 football season Saturday, November 4, with an impressive 9-7 win over Winona Teachers. Winona led the Minnesota Teachers College Conference and was undefeated prior to their meeting with the Red and White. River Falls scored in the second quarter when Boettcher crashed over right tackle from the twenty-four-yard line. Dubbe’s attempted placement was blocked. Ralph Spencer, Winona fullback, scored for Winona after blocking a River Fails punt and passing into scoring position. Andrejack kicked the extra point and Winona led 7-6 at half time, but River Falls completely dominated the play during the second half.Diermeier Trecker Bom 127 Schmidt LeDuc FOOTBALL 1939 CONFERENCE GAMES RIVER FALLS opened the conference season with a heartbreaking 12-7 loss to the Superior Yellowjackets at Superior, October 6. The Yellowjackets opened the scoring in the first quarter after Rich returned one of Trcckcr’s punts from midfield to the eighteen-yard-linc. Paquette, Yellow jacket fullback, carried the ball to the eight-yard-line. On the fourth down Rich plunged over center for the score. Cirilli’s attempt for the extra point was wide. In the second quarter the Falcons were stopped six inches from the goal and the half ended River Falls 0—Superior 6. In the third quarter a recovered fumble by Kroeger gave the Falcons possession of the ball in Superior territory. Trecker on reverses and plunges carried the ball to the eighteen-yard-line. Bartz stepped back on the fourth down and passed to Kroeger in the end zone. Dubbe kicked the extra point to put the Falcons in the lead 7-6. The rest of the game was played in the Yellowjackets' territory, but the Falcons were unable to score. Bartz, apparently off on a touchdown run, stumbled and fell when in the clear and another drive was halted. With two minutes to go the Falcons decided to attempt another pass. Paquette intercepted on the dead run and with the aid of good blocking ran sixty-five yards to a touchdown. The game ended with the Red and White on the Yellowjackets’ fifteen-yard-line. Outstanding for the Falcons were Trecker, Bartz, and Boettcher in the backfield and Schmidt and Schulenberg in the line. The Red and White of River Falls made their Homecoming weekend a success by defeating a tough Stout Institute team 18-14, at Ramer Field. The Blue Devils of Stout threatened to score immediately after the opening kickoff, but were stopped on the thirty-five-yard line. River Falk was forced to punt and the Blue Devils came surging back with two long passes to score. Moe kicked the extra point and Stout led 7-0.Lucent© Deiss FOOTBALL 1939 CONFERENCE GAMES IN the second quarter River Falls took the lead with two quick touchdowns. Trecker, Vandeberg and Boettcher carried the ball to the Stout thirty-five-yard-line, then Trecker passed to Schmidt on the one-yard-line where he was stopped cold. Vandeberg on a brilliant sweeping end-run crossed the goal standing up. The try for point was wide. After the next kickoff Stout was forced to punt and White, Falcon end, blocked the kick. Dobberstein, Falcon tackle, picked up the ball and fell over the goal line for a touchdown. Again the try for point was wide, and the half ended with the Falcons leading 12-7. Early in the fourth quarter Keough faked a pass and ran twenty-five yards for a touchdown without a hand touching him. Moe kicked the point and Stout led 14-12. In the closing minutes of the game the Falcons, playing their best ball, carried the ball to the Blue Devils’ twenty-five-yard line. Trecker faded back and tossed a perfect pass to Schmidt in the end zone for the score. The try for point was blocked. Stout, in desperation, tossed passes right and left in the final seconds only to have Trecker intercept one in midfield to stop their attempt to score. Boettcher, with his fine plunging and defensive work, Trecker, with his good punts and passes, and Gerhardt, with his hard blocking and tackling, were the stars of the game. Saturday, October 21, the Falcons traveled to Eau Claire where they were defeated for the second time in conference play. Eau Claire Teachers used a strong passing attack varied with a formidable running game in defeating the Falcons 20-12. Eau Claire scored in the first seven minutes of play on a scries of passes and plunges. Poquette scored from the ten-yard-line. The try for point was good. The passing combination, Poquette to Sequin, again placed the Zomadoes in position to score. Schulenberg Dobberstein Vandeberg 128Nickerson Dubbe A FIFTEEN-YARD-PENALTY on the Falcons placed the ball on the one-yard-line and from there Poquettc plunged over. The extra point was added and the score stood at 14-0. An Eau Claire fumble in the second quarter gave the Falcons the ball on the twenty-five-yard-line. Trecker picked up five yards and Vandeberg broke loose to score standing up from the twcnty-yard-line. The try for point failed. In the third quarter Dubbe blocked an Eau Claire punt and Boettcher, playing heads up ball, recovered on the four-yard-line. Bartz plunged over for the touchdown. Dubbe’s placekick was wide and the score was 14-12. With but six minutes left to play a bad pass from center put the ball on the Falcons’ 6f teen-yard-line. Trecker’s punt was blocked by Ormstad, Eau Claire guard, and the ball bounced into the end zone where half the Eau Claire team recovered it. The attempted conversion was wide and the game ended. Dubbe, Gerhardt and Trecker played outstanding ball for the Falcons. The Falcons suffered their third conference defeat at the hands of the LaCrosse Indians, October 28. The Indians went on a scoring spree and buried the Falcons to the tunc of 34-7. Kelly, the Indians’ star back, picked off the opening kick-off and returned it 80 yards for a touchdown. The try for point was good. The Falcons came back strong, but were stopped on the Indians’ twenty-yard-line. After an exchange of punts Vandeberg scored on a sweeping end-run. The try for point was good and the score was tied 7-7. With Lass, Bahr, and Rousch leading the running attack and the entire Indian lineup putting on an exhibition of blocking and tackling, the Indians scored twice in the first quarter, once in the third quarter and twice in the final quarter. The Indians put on a show of offensive power that was augmented by perfect blocking. The Falcons, however, did not admit they were beaten, but gave their best in an attempt to score. Dubbe, Schulcn-berg, and Vandeberg were especially outstanding, as the Falcons were handed their worst defeat of the year. 129 Rivard Isaacson FrankKroeger, Palm, Olson, Noyes, Rasmussen, Schmidt Deiss, Coach Lowery, Peloquin, King, Schwartz, Nelson, McCollow THE 1939-1940 BASKETBALL TEAM Emmet Lowery...........................Coach Reynold Pady.........................Manager Ganus Deiss Jerry Deiss Jack King Fred Kroeger Edward McCollow Marcel Nelson George Noyes Newel Olson Stanley Palm Stanley Peloquin Harold Schmidt Don Schwartz Ken Rasmussen 130RESULTS OF THE SEASON CONFERENCE River Falls 35 River Falls 45 River Falls 34 River Falls 3 6 Superior 67 Eau Claire 5 9 La Crosse 53 Eau Claire 42 River Falls 37 River Falls 43 River Falls 58 River Falls 43 Stout 38 Superior 55 Stout 35 La Crosse 53 River Falls 29 River Falls 52 River Falls 52 NON-CONFERENCE St. Olaf 38 Macalester 51 St. Olaf 43 River Falls 53 River Falls 42 River Falls 59 Macalester 45 Oshkosh 38 Augsburg 29 CONFERENCE STANDINGS Won Superior.......................................... 7 Eau Claire.......................................... 6 La Crosse........................................... 5 River Falls......................................... 1 Stout .............................................. 1 Lost 1 2 3 7 7 Players Named on the All-Conference Team First Team Marcel Nelson .GuardBASKETBALL 1939-1940 ONLY four of last year’s lettermen answered Coach Lowery’s call for basketball practice on Monday, November 13, Marcel Nelson, Don Schwartz, Jack King, and Fred Kroeger. New men on the squad were Stanley Palm, Doc Schmidt, Ed. McCollow, Jerry Dciss, Stan Pclcquin, Newel Olson, Ken Rasmussen, and George Noyes. The Red and White opened the season with a 38-29 loss to a strong St. Olaf team at Northficld, Minnesota. The game was fast but quite ragged as Coach Lowery used all his men in trying out different combinations. St. Olaf led at half time 23-15. King in a scoring spurt after the half cut their lead to three points. Then St. Olaf in a counter-attack built up a nine-point lead, which they held until the final gun. King and Nelson showed up the best, but as a whole the Falcons showed much promise of becoming a fine team. The Falcons next journeyed to St. Paul, Minnesota, where they defeated Macalester College 52-51 in a fast exciting game. The lead changed hands several times and, except for immediately after the half when the Macmen held a nine point lead, the teams were within four points of each other. Kroeger, Schmidt, and Nelson were the big guns for the Falcons in their thrilling first win of the season. The second non-conference victory was scored at the expense of St. Olaf College of Northfield, Minnesota, by a score of 52-43. Kroeger, with his 19 points, led the Falcon attack in this hotly contested game. The game was a thriller from start to finish, and it was not until the closing minutes that the Falcons pulled away to their nine-point lead. King and Kroeger were by far the best men on the floor, both offensively and defensively. Apparently hitting their stride, the Falcons chalked up their third non-conference victory against Macalester College of St. Paul 53-45. The Macmen opened the scoring with a gift shot, and from then on the Falcons came back and were never threatened. The Falcons held a ten-point lead at the half time and, after increasing it after the rest period, the reserves were given a chance. They showed up remarkably well and when the game ended were playing good ball. King, Schwartz, and Kroeger led the Falcon attack with their accurate shooting and snaring of rebounds. 132Rasmussen Schwartz Palm BASKETBALL 1939-1940 THE Oshkosh Teachers of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, were the next victims of the Red and White. The Falcons were hard pressed to win by a narrow margin of 42-38. The lead changed hands several times and with but two minutes left to play was tied at 38 all. Successive baskets by hard driving Kroeger and Doc Schmidt accounted for the winning margin. Kroeger with his high score of fourteen and Nelson with his fine defensive play and leadership were the outstanding men on the Red and White. In the last non-conference game of the season the Falcons swamped the Augsburg College team 51-29. All the players on the Falcon team saw action in the game and down to the last reserve dominated the play. No one was especially outstanding as different combinations were tried by Coach Lowery in preparation for the coming conference season. The Falcons opened their conference season by losing to Superior Teachers to the tune of 67-3 5. Superior used ten men with no loss of efficiency and clearly demonstrated why they were considered conference champions. The Yellow jackets jumped off to an early lead and led at half time 30-14. With no let-up after the half they continued to bombard the bucket accurately and at the final gun had a thirty-two-point lead. Nelson garnered twelve points for the Falcons and also played fine defensive ball. The Red and White suffered their second conference defeat at the hands of the Eau Claire Zomadoes 59-45. The game started out fast and close, but in a scoring spurt before the half the Zomadoes built up a comfortable lead of 29-17. The accurate eye of Kroeger and the defensive play of Nelson kept the Falcons in the game, but the Zornmen put on another spurt and at the final gun held a fourteen-point advantage. The third conference defeat was suffered by the Red and White at the hands of the Indians of La Crosse 53-34. The first half was very slow and ragged, but early in the second half the smaller Indians hit their stride and with an amazing display of speed swamped the Falcons with their fast break. This game marked the appearance of Ken Rasmussen at the center post. He clearly demonstrated his ability as a defensive star and rebound man and showed promise of being a very useful man in future games.Deiss Peloquin McCollow BASKETBALL 1939-1940 TRAVELING to Eau Claire, the Falcons again went down to defeat by the Zornadocs 42-36. This game was hotly contested and the first half was wild with the lead changing hands three times. The Zornadoes held a 16-14 lead at the half. The second half opened fast and was a repetition of the first period. Rasmussen, Nelson, and King led the Falcon attack, but the Falcons were unable to overcome the accurate shooting of the Zornadoes and went down to defeat. In a rough and tumble type of game the Red and White were defeated by the Blue Devils of Stout Institute 38-37. The game was nip-and-tuck with little real basketball played by cither team. River Falls, due to the accurate eye of Krocger, led at the half 16-15. The second half was a repetition of the first with the Falcons holding a slight advantage. The powerful Yellowjackets of Superior accounted for the sixth defeat of the courageous Falcons by winning a 55-43 decision on the Falcons’ floor. Nelson and Kroeger were outstanding for the Falcons by scoring eleven and nine points respectively. The Red and White finally broke into the win column by defeating Stout Institute 58-35. The game was exceptionally fast and rough, but the Falcons had the advantage at every turn and won easily under the leadership of Kroeger and Nelson. In a postponed game at La Crosse the Falcons were again defeated by the Indians 53-43. The game was fast with the Indians having the advantage of greater speed, which accounted for the loss of the final game of the season for the Falcons.

Hageseth, Kliszoz Hollander, Ptacek, Klucarich, Barto, Noyes. Solberg BASEBALL 1940 ONLY eight members of the 1939 baseball team returned to school this year. They formed the nucleus about which Clifford Juedes built his 1940 team. The returning men were Bartz, Gray, Hoagenson, Kroeger, Nelson, Peloquin, Peterson, and Trecker. New men who comprised the rest of the squad were: infielders, Hageseth, Kliszcz, Kelly, McCollow, and Ptacek; outfielders, Noyes and Hollander; catchers, Frolik and Tobler; pitchers, Olson, Horn, Paulson, Bcrklund, Drchmcl, and Solberg. Last year, in the first year of conference play, River Falls took second place. Their record for the season, including non-conference games, was five wins and five defeats. Last year’s team was coached by Mert Wulf, who acted as playing coach. This year Clifford Juedes has taken the task of coaching the Falcons. Conference games were scheduled with Eau Claire, Stout, and La Crosse, a homc-and-homc scries to be played with each school. Non-conference games were scheduled with Concordia, St. Thomas, and Minnesota State Prison in order to prepare the Falcons for the conference season. River Falls opened the current season with an impressive 10-3 victory over Concordia College of St. Paul. The Falcons started fast, scoring two runs in the second inning. They added two more in the third, four in the fourth, and two in the eighth. The visitors’ tallies came in the seventh and eighth. Highlight of the game was the splendid hurling done by Falcon pitchers, Peloquin and Olson. The former allowed but one hit in the first five innings. Batting honors went to Kelly and Trecker, Falcons’ first baseman and left fielder respectively; the former got three hits in five times at bat, while the latter got three in four times up. The River Falls nine was in poor form in the second game of the season, being trounced by St. Thomas College of Sc. Paul 12-1. Four pitchers, Gray, Peloquin, Olson, and Drehmel, worked on the mound for the Falcons. The Tommies were credited with nineteen hits, the majority of them received on ground balls. River Falls was able to get only eight hits off the slants of Makousky and Wegner, St. Thomas pitchers. In the third game of the season, May 3, the squad lost a close one to Eau Claire 4-3. Peloquin turned in a good performance on the mound. The following day the squad journeyed to Stillwater to meet the strong Minnesota State Prison team. The Falcons came out on the short end of a 7-1 score. Olson turned in a good job of pitching, but River Falls did not seem able to get hits at the crucial time. Hits were rather scattered and as a result they were only able to push across one run. 35INTRAMURALS 1939-1940 DURING the 1939-40 school year River Falls has had the largest and most successful intramural program in its history. The success of an intramural program is not measured by new records in individual or team scoring, but by the number of students who take part in the sports. The slogan has been of a double nature—Participation For All—A Sport For Everyone. This theme was carried out under the able guidance of Clifford Jucdcs, who took advantage of the rather limited resources in the line of equipment and aroused the interest of a large percentage of the men in the student body. The program was varied enough to bring into prominence not only physical skills but also mental skills. The system of point awarding made it necessary for the men to enter as many events as possible in order to have a chance to earn an award at the close of the season. One hundred points were given each participant in any of the events on the program and additional points were given to each winner as well as to those who ranked high in the standings in the event. This made it possible for one man to enter all events and win the high point trophy at the end of the year without ever winning a first. The program began with the organization of a touch football league in the fall. Seven teams were organized and a round robin schedule run off. The Gophers, captained by Orville Grassl, took top honors. The other members of the championship team were Kusclik, Boles, Van Sickle, Kulbeck, Johnson, Hopkins, Ericson, Dempsey, H. Grassl, and Dosch. A horseshoe singles tournament occupied the off season between touch football and basketball seasons. H. Hull replaced last year’s champion, MDoc” Schmidt, who contented himself with second place.X INTRAMURALS 1939-1940 BASKETBALL again drew the greatest number of participants. Twelve teams of ten players each were organized into two leagues. Each league played a round robin schedule and at the completion of this the top three teams in each league were matched in a championship tournament, while the bottom three teams in each league were matched in a consolation tournament. The Grand Champion team was the Buckctccrs, captained by Ed. Jacobson. Other members of the team were Diermcicr, Wills, Doornink, Peterson, Dueholm, O. Grassl, and B. Boettcher. At the completion of the regular intramural basketball season an open tournament was held in the same sport. Seven teams entered the straight elimination tourney and Ed. Jacobson’s "P.K.” team took the championship in a close game with Dubbe's "Park Trotters.” Other P.K. members were Deetz, Gardner, Wcsscls, Schroch, Bcrklund, Dempsey, Bergstrom, and Dobberstein. Bowling held the attention of about forty men during the winter months. Leo Kelly’s "Sparers” emerged as the winner at the close of the season. Interest in this sport developed slowly, but at the end of the season many enthusiasts were doing their best to bowl over the pins. A swim decathlon in the spring attracted the attention of eight men. Bob Ahlstrom took top honors with John Schorta not very far behind. Recreational swimming in the form of splash parties is being planned for the rest of the year. Last year many students took advantage of this opportunity and a good turnout is expected at the forthcoming session. Table tennis singles were run off in the fall with Bob Pla.tte defeating Wayne Munger for the championship. Fourteen men entered the sport, and interest and competition were very keen. 137Dobberstein Jacobson son OH Wills DeeH All-Star Intramural Basketball Team INTRAMURALS 1939-1940 THE table tennis doubles attracted the attention of thirty-eight men. Orville Thompson and Dewey Paulson defeated the Junkman-Enloe team for the championship. Seventy men entered the volleyball meet and seven teams were organized. The North Sidcrs, captained by Marcel Nelson, emerged as winners with Bob Platte’s Bachelors a close second. This is a sport which is gathering a larger following every year and which promises to be a favorite next year. The mental giants had a chance to show their skill in the checker tournament. Mervin Gilberts won first place in the field of thirty-two contestants with Drchmcl as runner-up. One hundred and five men entered the softball league and nine teams were chosen. Play began in the third week of April and will continue through the third week of May. The games are being run off in a backdoor tournament. This gives a team a chance to win the championship even though it may lose one game. Interest is high and all participants arc really enjoying the sport. A track decathlon will close the intramural season for the year. Already thirty men have signed up and a total of forty is expected before the time limit expires. Each man will compete in each one of the ten following events: the fifty, one-hundred, two-hun-dred-twenty yard dashes, shot put, broad jump, high jump, discus, hop-step-and-jump, push-ups, and baseball throw for distance and accuracy.Kelly, Barto, Hopkins, Isaacson, Thoeny, Gray Peterson, Kliszcz, Mills, Aldrich, White (coacn) BOXING 1940 John Aldrich Tommy Kliszcz Bill Mills George Macki Orville Peterson Glen Thoeny John Ladwig Bantamweight Featherweight Lightweights Welterweights Emmett Kelly Donald DeNeau Craig Hopkins Bob Gray Rupert Isaacson Barto Dobberstein Middleweights t heavyweights Heavyweights NO attempt was made to organize an all-college boxing team until quite late in the season, when two matches were scheduled with the Red Wing Training School. The first bout ended in a 4-4 tie, and in the second meeting the local boys were victorious by a 6J4-2 Vi margin. Previous to this these boys engaged in various amateur shows and tournaments in Wisconsin and in Minnesota. The season reached its peak when seven of the boys entered in the Seventeenth District Golden Gloves Tournament at Red Wing, Minnesota. They were Peterson, Mills, Aldrich, Barto, Thoeny, Gray, and Daggett. Six of these seven boys survived the elimination fights and reached the finals, and Thoeny and Barto went on to win the championships in their respective divisions. By winning this tournament Barto and Thoeny qualified for entrance to the Northwest Golden Gloves Tournament at Minneapolis. In the opening elimination round Thoeny was matched against Shaughnessy, a pre-tournament favorite and one of the top amateur welterweights in the northwest. Thoeny won a rousing decision over his opponent after flooring his man four times and once being knocked down himself. Barto was matched against Jack Thurly of Winona, Minnesota, a popular pre-tournament favorite, to win the heavyweight title. Barto easily outboxed him to win a decision. In the second round of elimination fights both boys were handicapped by injuries received the previous night and were defeated. The only men to graduate on the squad are Milk and Thoeny who have established envious records for themselves in four years of boxing. Mills has a record of seventeen victories and eight defeats, while Thoeny has a total of twenty-two victories and six defeats. All of these boys were coached and trained by Mike White, a former national golden glove contender, and Dan Linehan, local chief-of-police. 139Anderson, King, Palm, Junkman, Platt, Nickerson MINOR SPORTS 1940 TENNIS and golf round out the year's athletic schedule at River Falls. These two sports arc considered minor sports and the participants will receive awards in the form of a minor "R” at the close of the season. Nelson, Prucha, and Schmidt arc the returning members of last year’s golf squad. New men are Thompson, Weber, Reynolds, and Jacobson. The golfers have been working hard and show promise of a good season. King and Nickerson arc the only returning men from last year’s tennis team. New men who fill the places of those who graduated are Anderson, Junkman, Palm, and Platte. Two golf matches have been played so far this season. The first match with St. Thomas of St. Paul ended in a victory for the "Tommies” by a score of % i to 3 z. The golf team vindicated itself in the second match by defeating Eau Claire 8 to 4. The Falcon tennis team got off to a good start early in the season by defeating the Concordia College squad 5 to 1. In their next two matches they were defeated by St. Thomas and Eau Claire, both by the score of 5 to 1. Tennis and golf matches for the remainder of the season have been scheduled with La Crosse and Stout. The men who show up best during the scheduled matches will have a chance to compete in the state golf and tennis meet at Eau Claire on May 22.

Membership in the association is not obligatory for those who wish to participate in athletics, but it is this group which selects the sports managers for each activity and which sponsors the tournaments that arc run off in the various games. Activity meetings devoted to group sports arc held each Tuesday and Thursday at four o'clock. Business meetings arc held twice a month. This year’s procedure was varied slightly so that one meeting was of a social and the other of a business nature. Social meetings were highlighted by several interesting parties. In an effort to arouse more interest in athletics and to secure the attention of prospective members, the WAA sponsored an intramural sports day soon after school convened. The innovation was a huge success. More than forty new girls participated in this all-school, all-girls play day. The time was spent in playing basketball, pinball, ping-pong and swimming; the activity period was followed by a six-thirty dinner in the cafeteria. The day served to promote good fellowship between upper and under classmen and to attract new members for the group. Another feature of the association’s yearly program is the sports day held each winter with Eau Claire as guest. This year's sports day was held on March 30; Eau Claire won out in the day's competition by taking three of the five events, thus winning for the third time, and permanently, the possession of the Falcon Cup. In addition to the sports events of the day, a luncheon was served to the group at the Hotel Gladstone; this was followed by a social hour and dancing. Events still pending on the organization’s spring program are the spring camping trip to Lake St. Croix, the outdoor sports meet at Eau Claire, the spring tennis tournament, and the baseball tournament. At the end of the year the organization terminates its activities with a banquet at which letter-winners and graduating seniors are honored. To win the WAA "R” a girl must earn at least 500 points in intramural competition. The activities of this year’s group were capably directed by Leona Rhodey, president; Dolores Kramschuster, vice-president; Dorothy Parrish, secretary; Mildred Birkmose, treasurer; and June Johnson, point secretary. Miss Mary Louise Branstad acts as the group’s very efficient adviser. Mary Louise Branstad 143Rhodey. Parrish, Chubb. Fellraih, Rolson Lovell, Saul. Feldman, Birkmose. Manske HOCKEY HOCKEY officially opens the women’s intramural sports season. As in other years, the hockey crowd was small, since the game is rather rough and enervating. This crowd can be trusted, though, to make up in spirit and enthusiasm what it lacks in numbers. The hockey season runs for the first five weeks in the fall and of the five, three are devoted to tournament play. The struggle for the championship was limited to two teams, one captained by Joyce Chubb, the other by Irene Raawe. Out of a total of five tournament games Raawe’s team won four, all of them by decisive scores. The championship team was composed of Mildred Birkmose, Beth Feldman, Annette Gantenbein, Dolores Kramschuster, Bernice Lovell, Dorothy Lovell, Eunice Manske, Marion Saul, Dorothy Parrish, Helen Engcbrctson and Irene Raawe. Bernice Lovell was sports head for the hockey season. HIT-PIN BASEBALL A highly exciting game is this one of hit-pin baseball. Played on an indoor baseball diamond, the game combines the element of soccer and baseball. Perhaps because it is so easily learned, this game attracts many participants each year. Three teams, captained by Beth Feldman, Audrey Rolson, and Betty Miles, played off a round-robin tournament that ended in Feldman’s team winning the championship, out of eight games played Feldman’s team won six and lost two. Miles’ team lost four and won four, and Rolson’s team won two and lost six.

After devoting a preliminary period to polishing up skills and getting acquainted with rules, four teams were lined up for tournament play. They were the Long Shots, captained by Bernice Lovell, the Pot Shots by Marion Saul, the Short Shots by Vonnie Fellrath, and the Hot Shots by Phyllis Case. In the round-robin tournament that followed the Hot Shots started out by living up to their name, defeating the other three teams in successive games to assume the lead in the tourney. After that, disaster overtook them, and they dropped the next seven games in a row to sink to last place in the standings. Meanwhile the other three teams put on a hotly contested race for the lead. At one time, the Long Shots, Short Shots, and Pot Shots were tied for the lead, but the last week of play saw the Pot Shots, captained by Marion Saul, take the championship by winning seven games and losing three. The Long Shots and Short Shots, led by Bernice Lovell and Vonnie Fellrath, tied for second by winning five and losing five. Marie Tromm acted as manager for the season. She, along with the four captains, selected an honor team from among the best players. It was composed of Leona Rhodey, Eunice Manske, Grace Larson, Bernice Lovell, Marie Tromm, Marion Saul, Audrey Rolson, Mildred Birkmose, Vonnie Fellrath, Phyllis Case, Dorothy Parrish, Alma Collum, and Vera Lund. 145 Rolson Birkmose Kuenning Feldman Saul (captain) Gregerson Ekenstedt Bleisner Reid Collum Lovell (captain) Larson Manske Johnson Rhodey Vetter Fellrath (captain) Mulheran Jewson Gilham Parrish Goltz Lund AdamsSumner, Anderson, Bleisner, Gilham, Johnson Saul.

Since the game is played over such a long period of time, it was decided to run a ladder tournament for a period of several weeks. In such a tournament no one is even eliminated; players can challenge each other as long as the tournament lasts. Twenty-one girls entered the tournament, and of these twenty-one, two were awarded medals of recognition. The championship medal was awarded to Alma Sumner; the runner-up medal was won by Lois Gregerson. Anna Mae Gilham and Margaret Monteith placed third and fourth respectively. TENNIS A SUNNY day, a tennis court, and thee on the opposite side of the net——what a perfect appeal to two racqueteers, or four, if it’s not interrupting anything. The lazy spring days that tempt the student often draw her to such a setting. This year the tennis singles tourney claimed many women, all in quest of the championship. Only one, however, can be the lucky medalist. Of the veteran players those expected to make a bid for the title are: Geneva Bleisner, a promising player from Baldwin; Anna Mae McDowell, a sophomore from Hudson; and Eunice Manske, last year’s champion from Wabeno. To stimulate interest and to encourage the freshmen and sophomores to more play, a doubles tourney was arranged in which each experienced player took as her partner an inexperienced player. Since tennis instruction is being offered in the spring physical education classes this tournament allowed the girls to test their tennis skills under the pressure of real matches. In this way the foundation is being laid for more and better tennis players. Saul, Rolson, Parrish. Birkmose, Vetter. Johnson, Goltz, Lovell, Hil-lestad.

Players are a bit rusty and creaky in the joints, but it isn’t long before the "old rhythm" returns and the great American game assumes the polished look. Every now and then the polish dulls a little when an "attack of errors” seizes the "fair femmes” of the diamond, but all this only adds to the fun and hilarity. Teams captained by Beth Feldman and Audrey Rolson, two of the outstanding freshmen players, are playing a seven game tournament. Since the Meletean goes to press before the tourney is completed, the results cannot be recorded here. RECREATIONAL SPORTS ACTIVITIES that are purely individualistic in nature and engaged in merely for the recreation they afford are swimming, badminton, and archery. No tournaments or contests were run off in these activities, but they did receive much attention from individuals. Miss Branstad received approximately twenty-five requests for instruction periods in archery to be held on Mondays and Wednesdays after school. After a short time spent in learning a few fundamentals, the archers go out on their own. The more time spent shooting, of course, the greater becomes one’s accuracy and skill. Badminton, too, was purely an individual concern as far as school activities in it were concerned. Because of the expense entailed in playing and because of the difficulty in securing available gymnasium space activity was shown only by the real enthusiasts of the sport. It is to be regretted that conditions are not so favorable for this game, because River Falls in the past few years has had one of the outstanding badminton groups in the state. However, some River Falls students and faculty did enter two of the Minnesota tournaments. Early in January Dr. Owens and Eunice Manskc won second place in the Northwest Invitational Tournament held at the Minneapolis Y. M. C. A. In the Minnesota State Badminton Tournament held at the St. Paul Athletic Club in February Allan Peterson and Mrs. Henry Owens won first place in Class B mixed doubles; Eunice Manske and Dr. Owens won second place in Class A mixed doubles. Mr. Scttcrquist and Allan Peterson were leading in the championship match in Class B men’s doubles, when Mr. Scttcrquist pulled a muscle in his leg, and the match had to be defaulted. Baker Mulheran Saul Rhodey Larson Feldman Milos 147Eunice L. Manske EUNICE L. MANSKE EUNICE MANSKE, a member of this year’s graduating class from Wabeno, Wisconsin, has made an outstanding record in women’s athletics during her college career. She has also been active in the Women’s Athletic Association. In her freshman year Miss Manske demonstrated her ability in the racquet games when she became co-holder of the women’s doubles championship in badminton and runner-up in both the fall and spring tennis tournaments. In addition to being a member of the hockey, basketball, softball, and hit-pin ball teams, she captained the basketball team and gained a place on the honor team in basketball and hit-pin ball. She also earned her Red Cross Life Saving badge. She climaxed the year by winning the school "R,” one of the few to win this honor in their freshman year. During her sophomore, junior, and senior years. Miss Manske participated in all sports and won places on all honor teams. As a junior and senior she also won the fall and spring tennis championships. Miss Manske has been especially active in badminton. During her sophomore year she and Miss Brans tad were runners-up in the women’s doubles tournament in the Wisconsin State Badminton Tournament. Also, she was women’s singles champion and was co-holder with Elmer Henke of the mixed doubles championship in the intercollegiate tournamenr. During her sophomore, junior, and senior years. Miss Manske and Dr. Owens were runners-up in the Minnesota State Badminton Tournament. In Miss Manske’s senior year they were runners-up in the Minneapolis Y. M. C. A. tournament. As tennis and badminton sport head she has done much to stimulate an interest in these sports by conducting intra-school tournaments. Miss Manske has been active in all organized sports; even in her senior year she participated in all team sports and gained a place on all honor teams. In the Women’s Athletic Association she was on the Homecoming committee for three years, financial chairman for two years, and tennis and badminton sport head. As a junior, she was chairman of the Eau Clairc-Rivcr Falls playday. Miss Manske has also been outstanding in other activities. She has been a member of several organizations, including the Honor Society, and has been on the Mclctean and Student Voice Staffs.STUDENT LIFEPatiently waiting.

The membership of the Senate is limited to eleven members, seven of whom are elected at an assembly meeting in May. The other four positions are filled by the presidents of the classes. At its first meeting the new Senate elects its officers. The Senate has various routine functions. One of the first in regard to time is the election of editors for the Student Voice and the Meletean, the selections being made from recommendations submitted by the advisers of the two publications. The Senate has charge of the election of the Homecoming Chairman and Homecoming Queen and oversees all Homecoming activities. Important Senate committees arc the Organization Committee, which fixes the time of meeting for various organizations in order to reduce to a minimum the chances for conflict, the Auditing Committee whose duty is the auditing of the books of the school organizations, and the Assembly Committee, which arranges for the assembly programs. A Party Committee of eight members, two from each class, is selected by the Senate. This committee, working in collaboration with a representative from the Student Senate and securing funds from the Senate, arranges for school parties and other social events. For the past two years, the Senate has also published a hand-book containing a resume of college rules and regulations, information generally useful for freshmen. Working with the Senate is a Student-Faculty Relations Committee composed of six student senators and five faculty members. It is through this committee that direct contact is maintained between the faculty and the students’ representatives. This year the Senate’s accomplishments include: the passing of measures which make payment of class dues compulsory, building and placing of a new bulletin board, purchase of a recording unit for the music and speech department, music for the NYA dance orchestra, and magazines for the social room, men’s union, and health cottage. A Dad's Day was sponsored with marked success. It was instituted this year with the idea of its becoming a traditional entertainment day for the Dads. Charters were granted to two new organizations on the campus. The Midgardians Club and Sigma Chi Sigma. The Senate terminated its year’s work with a dinner on the Saturday evening preceding Commencement.Koosmann, Johnson, Bents THE HONOR SOCIETY OFFICERS Marcus Koosmann Ulrich Bents.....

Approximately ninety persons have achieved such records and are included as members of the organization. A small silver "R,” which may be worn by the members, is the emblem of the Honor Society. Upon graduation a gold "R” is awarded to those who have had two and one-fourth honor points per credit hour and have received no grade below a "C.” This is based on eleven terms of work. Because of the diverse interests of its membership, the Honor Society functions chiefly as a social organization. Meetings are held monthly, and consist of parties or other activities conducted for the enjoyment of the members. Members of the group acting in committees plan and and put on the parties. The first activity of the year was the construction of the Honor Society float for Homecoming under the direction of Harold Doornink. Members of the organization met eight times during the year. Three of these meetings were informal teas, given to welcome new members at the beginning of each term. At each of the teas musical selections were given with Margaret Johnson and Margaret Bcndix at the piano. Mrs. Eide was hostess at a Christmas tea for the group, which then included new members joining at the close of the first term. Gladys Blcisncr was pianist. Several parties were also given by the organization. Among those who appeared on programs throughout the year were Carl Miller, James Grunke, Mary Catherine O’Connell, and Jack Bailey. Especially entertaining was the program given by Carl Miller, in which he described his trip through Europe the previous summer with his collegiate orchestra. Beautiful photographs and slides of Paris, London, and other famous cities were shown. This year, as has been customary with the Honor Society, several unique party ideas were introduced. Chairmen for these parties were Margaret Bendix, Jack Osborne, and Mildred Hillcstad, each of whom introduced several new games to the group. Most fun was the all-newspaper party, directed by Mildred Hillestad, in which newspapers were used for every imaginable purpose—even that of costumes for the members. Jack Osborne’s game which attempted to make all Honor Society members into comic artists also proved a success. The two final meetings of the year consisted of the election of officers for 1940-41 in April and of a picnic in May. All activities of the Honor Society are planned to foster a feeling of friendship among the members and to give each person a chance to work with others.

JacobsonYOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ALUMNI members of the River Falls Student Young Men’s Christian Association commemorated the first quarter century of campus service of this organization in presenting a plaque to the institution. Beginning the second quarter century, the "Y” has been successful this year in fulfilling its purpose to offer the men in college an opportunity to unite in the development of Christian personality through wholesome social and religious participation, to cooperate with other colleges in a world wide fellowship, and to influence thinking toward a Christian solution of campus, community, and world problems. Significance beyond the local campus continued to be gained. Last summer the five members that represented the organization at the Lake Geneva District Conference directed the Program Workshop; and at the spring Minnesota-Wisconsin Conference at Camp Ihduhapi, representatives led the group discussion on finance and directed the Saturday evening recreation hour. The 140 members took part in one or more of the fourteen departments, each being directed by a cabinet member. The success that was realized can be attributed largely to the weekly cabinet meetings and other conferences. Cabinet members and the adviser spent a week-end on a spring retreat at Big Lake to evaluate the year’s work and just prior to the convocation of the school year, five days were spent at Fisherman’s Rest, El Paso, planning a constructive program of work. Valuable ideas were received from the Lake Independence regional and the Lake Geneva district conferences. This organization began its campus service when, in cooperation with the Young Women’s Christian Association, it sponsored the freshman mixer party the first evening of the school year. The following Sunday, freshmen were given breakfast at the college cafeteria and then guided and introduced to their respective church groups. Special attention was given in the early part of the year to the orientation of new students to college life. Every Monday evening the organization met for an educational or recreational program designed to fill a present need; these meetings were the core of the "Y” activities. Outstanding were the addresses by Dr. T. Z. Koo and Reverend James Flint, the February scries of four lectures on various phases of marriage, the amateur program, and the open house meetings the first Monday of each term. On alternate Sunday mornings the senior cabinet and the junior cabinet met at Professor Jacobson's home for breakfast and followed this by a discussion of vital present day problems. Opportunity for group discussion on such subjects was also extended to the lay membership when, on alternate Monday evenings for a part of the year, nine groups met at the homes of college faculty members for this purpose. As in former years, this group built the float for the Homecoming Queen. Outstanding social events were the folk dances and the twenty-third annual bean soup stag party, in which a large proportion of the men in college participated. Members of the next year’s cabinet pledged their support to the organization at the annual installation banquet. The Junior Hi-Y displayed a great deal of enthusiasm in their program of vocational guidance, character building, and leisure time activities. To keep 160 closely associated alumni members in contact with the YMCA and with each other, three volumes of the "Y Alumnus” were sent to them throughout the year. The deputations, music, and dramatics departments sponsored twenty programs in off-thc-campus relations. Vesper services were held at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter seasons. This organization was also largely responsible in caring for the Men’s Union.Graves, Straub, Bendix, Raawe. Chappelle.

This organization aims toward promoting a fuller and more creative life for the girls of the campus and toward helping them build a character and personality well adjusted to college life. The Young Women’s Christian Association is governed by a cabinet, which consists of the four officers and nine chairmen who direct the various activities of the program. The cabinet is assisted by an advisory board of three members, each serving a term of three years. The present advisory board consists of Mrs. Justin Williams, Miss Mabel Bridges and Mrs. John Knapp. Miss Irma Hathom is the faculty adviser. The alternate Monday night meetings of the "Y” this year have been devoted to social events, a series of lectures, a style show, and musical programs. Among the outstanding events of the year were the trip to the settlement house in St. Paul, the worship services, and the joint Young Men’s Christian Association and Young Women’s Christian Association marriage course. Our Chinese tea with the Chinese displays was also an outstanding feature of this year’s work. An outstanding social feature of the year was the Puff Pant Prom, at which half the girls wore their formals and the other half accompanied them in men’s suits. A record group attended the fall conference at Carleton this year, at which delegates from all the colleges in the Minnesota-Northern Wisconsin area were present. A large delegation also attended the annual spring conference at Ihduhapi, Lake Independence, twenty miles from Minneapolis. Verna Annett and Elma Chappcllc attended the Ihduhapi planning conference at the University of Minnesota in February. This year has been a high point in the successful new projects that have been placed within reach of the student body.

The activities of the club, which are planned and presented by the members, include topics which arc not ordinarily taught in formal classes such as mathematical history, current scientific problems, and mathematical recreations. This year the practice of having occasional informal meetings was again used. At these meetings various games, mathematical recreations, and puzzles were presented. The bulletin board was also taken charge of by the Mathematics Club. The first meeting of the year was concerned with introducing the members to one another by means of games and name tags. President Bents gave a short talk on the purpose of the club. A Homecoming float was built under the direction of Stanley Palm. The theme "Wizard of Oz” was represented by the tornado-wrecked house which killed the wicked witch. The float received first prize. At the Christmas party a play, "Professor Whizz and His Mathematical Nuts,” was presented under the direction of Ulrich Bents. During the year the lives of a number of eminent mathematicians were discussed at the meetings in commemoration of their birthdays. Among those discussed were Galois, John Wallace, Sonja Kovalevsky, Simon Newcomb, Emmy Noether, Galileo, Rene Descartes and Euler. Talks were given on graphical methods of solving equations, invariants, mathematical societies in Europe and America, Mocbus or one-sided surfaces, chrystolography, methods of finding square and cube roots, magic squares, use of the transit in surveying, hyperbolic functions, tricks in helping to solve equations, number systems, failure of the unique factorization theorem in certain number fields, ideal numbers, calendars, minimum surfaces as demonstrated by soap film, and topology. Among the students who appeared on the programs were Ulrich Bents, George Noyes, Marcel Nelson, Howard Tcske, Stanley Atkinson, Stanley Palm, Reuben Hermanson, Mildred Birkmose, Ralph Van Sickle, Orlan Soli, William Sirek, Herbert Nelson, Ross Jesse, Milton Rudell, Joseph Klucarich, Duane Anderson, Theodore Gleiter, James Bramer, and Theodore Brandt. A picnic on the mound concluded the club’s activities for the year.

The club’s membership is made up of students who have majors or minors in science. However, any one who is interested is invited to attend the meetings, which this year were held in the chemistry lecture room. They were originally scheduled for Thursday nights, but due to unavoidable conflicts some of them were changed to Wednesday nights. As during the past two years, this year's program consisted mainly of educational films. These films were obtained from the Bureau of Mines at Pittsburgh, the Wisconsin Conservation Department, the Ford Motor Company, and the Eastman Kodak Company. The films shown this year were: Making a V-Type Engine, Photography at Work (slides, with comments by J. P. Jacobson), Sulphur Product ion. The Story of a Storage Bat-tery, The Internal Combustion Engine, Valves: Their Manufacture and Use, Metal Working with Qxyacetylene Flame, The Story of Nickel, The Story of a Mexican Oil Gusher, Safety Glass, Fabricated Copper, and Speckled Beauties, a story of trout. Besides having these worth-while films, the Science Club was fortunate in having several speakers. Mr. Lawrence "Corky” Hope, the district conservation warden, spoke on forest fires, which he defined as "any fire out of control." Mr. R. E. Madigan and Mr. M. 13. Monscn of the Northern States Power Company gave an interesting lecture-demonstration on the latest electrical improvements. Many members acclaimed this program one of the best of the year. It has been suggested by members of the club that some of the programs during the year be speeches by members. These may be supplementary to a film, a demonstration, or a presentation of some theory, but they should prove valuable to the student presenting them as well as to the group. This suggestion will be given consideration in planning next year's program. During the winter term Keith Wurtz assumed the duties of Orlan Soli, president, while Mr. Soli was practice teaching in Hudson. Because of the values obtained from the Science Club, it is hoped that it will continue to become more and more popular. Roy E. Spriggs 171Mr. May. Afdahl, Mills. Thompson. Hohmon, Peterson Mr. May.

It is the largest organization in the college. Its aims arc to prepare prospective teachers of vocational agriculture for duties of acting as advisers to high school chapters and aiding high school chapters in their work. The collegiate chapter was organized in 1936, and since that time has held to its aims and has changed only to broaden its scope of activity and to increase its membership. The chapter is chartered by the State Association of the Future Farmers of America and is under its authority. The meetings arc conducted according to the Future Farmer ritual. The constitution, which was drawn up by the charter members, states the rights and privileges of the organization. It also includes a system of degrees designated to stimulate the interne of the members and to allow for the advancement to a higher rank of those members meeting the qualifications of the higher degrees. The program of work for this year was very large and called for much activity on the part of the chapter. Included in this program were such activities as the stock judging contest held in October to aid in the preparation of contestants for the state high school contest held in Madison. The rural school fair held in October offered a chance for rural schools from this vicinity to compete for honors in the erection of a booth and for individual students to compete for cash prizes with individual exhibits of farm produce. The high school officers training day held in November was sponsored by the collegiate chapter to aid officers of high school Future Farmer chapters in solving the problems they meet and in better serving their local chapters. The speech contest held last spring offered a chance for members to improve their speaking ability while competing for cash prizes. Degree teams, as in the past, were organized and made trips to high school chapters in the surrounding territory. Their work consisted of initiating green hands and raising green hands to the grade of future farmer. A new feature of this year’s activity was the high school field day. The members of the collegiate chapter offered a program of interest to high school agriculture students and their instructors. All indications pointed to a desire among those present to continue this activity. Plans are being made to do so. Other activities included in the program of work were the annual banquet, the spring picnic, and the all-school dance.Anderson, Estenson, Parent Wurtz, Knops, Greenfield, Lynum THE RURAL LIFE CLUB OFFICERS First Half Year Donna Lynum . .

Membership is not compulsory to all students in this department, but everyone feels that he will enrich his experiences by being a member. The purpose of this organization is to provide a means of bringing the rural students together so that they may become better acquainted and at the same time enjoy the educational and entertaining program which is the major attraction of each meeting. Regular meetings were held the third Tuesday of every month, until it was decided at the March meeting to meet twice a month, the first Tuesday as well as the third. Much of the success of the club depends upon the chairman of the program committee. Camilla Parent had charge of the programs for the first half of the year and Marion Estcnson took over the responsibility for the remainder of the year. Our December meeting was a Christmas party at which games, presents from the tree, and refreshments were featured. Miss Haddow and Mr. O’Biernc gave very interesting talks at two of our other meetings. In April the first ten sophomores to secure teaching positions for next year gave a recreational program at which games were played and refreshments were furnished. The Rural Life Club feels the effect of the practice teaching in the rural communities, a six-weeks period in which twelve or sixteen members of the rural department arc living in the rural community. Because of the large number enrolled in the sophomore class this year, it was necessary to begin the practice work during the second half of the first term. While the students are doing their practice work, many of them live in the country and enjoy the country life just as they will when they are actually teaching. The schools in which students practiced this year were: The Gertrude School, Miss Clarice Anderson, teacher; the Lincoln School, Miss Vivian Afdahl, teacher; the Valley View School, Mrs. Archie Afdahl, teacher; and the South Rush River School, Miss Marion Bergseng, teacher. As a climax to the year’s activities, the Rural Life Club sent delegates to the Country Life Convention at the Central Teachers College at Stevens Point on May 5 and 4.

At the first meeting of the old and the new members the executive committee was elected. The chairman, elected the preceding year, presided over the general meetings. Meetings were held at seven o’clock in the art room on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. During the first part of the year the organization drew up a new constitution, one more democratic in principle than the old one. The major activities of the year were confined wholly to individual craft work, such as: the making of braided purses, carving wooden plates, block printing and leather tooling. Decoration of the halls for the Christmas holidays was sponsored by the Student Senate. The last half of the year was spent in projects of individual interest. Plans were made for a trip to the Walker Art Gallrry in the late spring. To raise money the club sold candy bars at a basketball game. It also sponsored a display of contemporary American paintings for the student body. As a major social event of the year, Miss Greene served the Palette Club a buffet supper at her apartment, April 11. As the evening's entertainment the club attended the four one-act plays given by the Masquers. Somewhat later in the spring the last general meeting was held. Arrangements were made for the annual picnic as a conclusion to the year’s work. This meeting was also devoted to the election of next year’s chairman. Alberta M.

Fourteen members of the G. O. P., an organization which was formed in 1912 to promote school pep, drew up a constitution which embodied a threefold purpose. The Greek letters in the name of the organization suggest this purpose: to promote the social life of the individual member, to promote culture, and to render a definite service to the college. The members who are received into Sigma Chi Sigma must conform to the standards specified in the constitution. Only sophomore, junior, or senior girls who are enrolled in a four year course; who maintain a scholastic average of 1.5; and who possess desirable personality and ethical traits, interest, and a capacity for leadership arc considered eligible for the organization. An advisory board of three persons, one of whom must be a faculty member, is chosen by the organization to serve on a three-year plan. The senior member will be replaced each year by an adviser elected by the group. Miss Alberta Greene, Miss Helen Loeb, and Mrs. J. H. Owens were chosen to serve on the first advisory board. A freshman girl who displays outstanding capacity for leadership, scholastic ability, and personality traits, will be the recipient of the scholarship to be awarded each year on Honor Day by the organization. Although the organization of the club itself was the outstanding contribution of the Sigma Chi Sigma year of 1940, the girls sponsored various social events during the winter and spring terms. Sixty prospective candidates attended the rushing tea given in the Social Room on February 16. A buffet supper was served at the home of Mrs. J. H. Owens, March 3, in honor of the fourteen new members. Sigma Chi Sigma week, April 1 to 3, was an innovation on our campus. During this week all members wore their emblems, sponsored a financial drive, and conducted a club talent program followed by a tea for the faculty women. A commencement banquet given by the members for the graduating seniors completed the calendar for the year. With the optimism that is characteristic of any new organization. Sigma Chi Sigma looks forward to assuming a genuine place in campus life.Taylor, Yanisch, Janicki, Morley PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB OFFICERS Raymond Moen Stanley Morley . George Mullen.

As a hobby it has been growing rapidly in all parts of the country for some time, and has definitely established itself on this campus. For several years the necessity of a photography club to consolidate and further the interests of those students who have adopted this art as a hobby had been apparent on the campus. Since it was evident that students with common interests such as this were in need of a working organization, such a club was formed last year and continued enthusiastically this year. Charter members of last year’s club formed the nucleus around which a very active organization of members has been built. In addition to using the club as a means of furthering a hobby the members have shown a keen desire to acquaint themselves with the principles and science of photography. Also, the club offered its members an opportunity to share common experiences, to work side by side with common interests, and to form lasting friendships. The purpose of the club is "to foster a lasting interest in photography, and to practice good photographic technique.” Club programs and activities throughout the year were arranged to carry out that purpose, both from an educational and recreational standpoint. Practical questions were mixed with the theoretical aspects of photography to make the programs of interest to everyone. Instruction in the science of photography by means of lantern slides formed the major part of the programs for the regular bi-monthly meetings. These slides, secured from the Eastman Kodak Company, presented to the members the experience and knowledge of professional photographers on the technical side of the subject. Darkroom technique was also discussed and practiced. Members first took their pictures, then developed them, and finally printed and enlarged them. As a supplementary project the club sponsored a "Picture of the Month Contest,” designed to give non-members as well as members an opportunity to display their prize works and enter into competition for a cash prize. Each month featured a different type of picture, such as portraits, still life, action, pictorial, snow scenes, and exterior night scenes. The members received valuable training througn comparing pictures, and through the criticism of the judges. A backward glance over the year’s achievement reveals a wealth of enjoyment and learning. New members learned enough about photography to be able to take and make their own pictures. Many of the "Student Life” pictures appearing in the Mclc ean have been taken and developed by club members. To Dr. B. H. Kettelkamp goes much of the credit for the success of the club because of his kind cooperation and assistance. With his guidance the club looks optimistically forward to next year. Benjamin H.

Bridges.................... Adviser MEMBERS Mildred Boles Dawn Gates Adele Olson Elsie Shafer Imogene Erickson Doris Nystrom Ruth Peterson Lois Tracy Lucille Fouts Marie Tromm THE MIDGARDIAN CLUB was organized in September, 1938. The membership consists of those enrolled in the intermediate division of the Elementary Department. For this reason the name was selected from an old Teutonic myth—Midgard—which means a middle place. The membership is open to all juniors and seniors in the intermediate division. Sophomores are initiated in May before the close of school. The aims of the Midgardians are professional and social improvement through discussions, exchange of ideas, and the study of common problems. This is accomplished by means of book reviews of outstanding value, outside speakers, and participation of the entire group in social projects. 182 Mabel L.

Program Chairman Mr. Ernst Jurgens...........................Adviser THE German club. Die Deutsche Gcscllschaft, under the sponsorship of Mr. Jurgens, is composed of members of the German classes. The club was revived this year in an effort to promote interest in the German language, German history, German literature, German music, German art, and a friendly feeling and understanding toward the German people. The club now has a membership of about thirty-five people and meets the third Thursday of each month. The meetings were both instructive and entertaining. German folk-dancing was the center of interest at one party, ice-skating at another, and films of German sports at still another. German folk songs were learned in class and sung during these monthly meetings. A social hour usually followed each program during which refreshments were served. The year’s work was completed with a picnic.Printing and Binding by AUGSBURG PUBLISHING HOUSE 425 South 4th Street Minneapolis Minnesota Engravings by BUREAU OF ENGRAVING, INC. 500 South 4th Street Minneapolis Minnesota
