 71944 TfteCeteaa The Melotoan comes to you again. Much that it contained in former years is missing. But the spirit of River Falls remains—a spirit of friendliness, high endeavor, and faith in the future. It is this spirit that prompted the publication of the annual this war year.

Haodrick—■ The Tradition of an active athletic deportment at River Falls -a. uphold throughout she I94J-44 season because of tha good participation in sports by the few students onrollod and tha efforts of Coach Man ion to keep the ball rolling. With el the other schools in the conference and many other tchooh throughout the country dropping sports. River Falls still carried on despite the difficulty of scheduling games. Footbel and basketbal became a part of our physical fitness program and resulted in a very successful season. One major and one minor lettermen returned, end an additional seventeen men made up the footbel squad. This was something of a record because this number represented over half tha fellows in school. However, there were still not enough follows for scrimmage or replacements, thus adding to tha problems of tha Falcons Coach. Tha Falcons traveled to Northfiold for their first encounter and won the much needed confidence by defeating the Oies by a 20-12 count. River Falls received the opening kickoff, and in a sustained 0?ootfcUt m3 drive scored the first touchdown of the season. Wickmen. Foiler. and Johnson each counted once, end Wickmen converted twice. The next two gomes were ployed with a light but determined Red Wing Training School eleven. The Falcons scored easily to win. 40-0 end 26-0. bringing the record to three wins and no defeats. The last and most highly prized game of the season was tha homecoming game with the fast, aggressive Oies. Tha Falcons gave tha home crowd a thrill in tha opening minutes when tha das Sne was split wide open and fullback Feilor sprinted 79 yards for a touchdown. Feilcr crossed tha goal two more times, and tha Falcons won. 19-0. The entire teem worked as a unit to hold St. Olaf to a minimum of yards, at tha same time developing a tremendous offensive punch. The regular starters were: C. Fetter and Shock, ends: McCerdle and Goodspccd. tackle; Beyl end Larson, guards; Wirz center; Johnson. quarterback; Wickman, left halfback; Wise, right halfback; and A. Foilor. fullback. However, each member of tha squad played in every game.ImI Rc. M(C dlf (Manager). Taaidalr. Win lanilry. CoacK » ••) Ro»: C. Moil. R. Moit. De long. Fe n. W,«.,,n. W« . TK« optnioq col for besketbal was mwerad by eleven freshmen. Without o lattormen on tho iquad there wot ample rooton to doubt o favorable outcome of tho too ton. This doubt, however, wot quickly erotod by o tmotkinq 57-20 victory over Mocolottor on tho Moc't floor, followod by two moro wins boforo tho Christmas rocott. Tho first qomo of tho tea ton to bo dropped wot with Hemline ot Hamline. Thit go mo wot ployed on the third day after vocation and the Folcont had hod only two light workouts. We played St. Olaf the tome week end tuffered a second setback, 34-27, after having defeated the Olet in tho game before Christmas. Dm Folcont then returned home to win two moro gemot, the Navy Fter . a service team composed of former colege stars. 49-32. end Mace letter. 44-24. Dtit new string was once again broken when River Folk played Concordia and the Navy Ren away from home. Wog the first. 57-49. and the second. 51-44. Upon returning home the Folcont defeated the professional Negro team, the New York Col- legians. before the largest home crowd of the year by the wide margin of 54-43. They won a asily on their neat two games over lethal Junior College. 61-45, and the Navy Selection Board. 66-33. The highlight of the tea ion wot the Eau Claire game.

Only oight old mombors wore in school. Now mombors. mostly froshmon, brought tho membership to 21. tho smallest membership Masquers has blown in yoars. More trouble was indicated by the fact that the sterner sox was conspicuous by its absence. In spite of these handicaps. Masquers has enjoyed one of its most successful years. Marilyn Mercord as head of the program committee has given us some of our most worthwhile programs. Two out-of-town trips were conducted; one to Minneapolis to see Boris Karloff in ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, and one to Macaloster CoDogo to see thoir production of CRY HAVOC. It was decided early in the year to restrict tho dramatic production program in view of the limited membership. In the fall term tho one-act play. THE KLEPTOMANIAC, was presented as an assembly program and very well rocoivod. Only one full-length production was undertaken. Allan Konward's play about nurses on Bataan, CRY HAVOC, was offered to the public on February 29. A gripping and timely war play, CRY HAVOC received an excellent audience reaction and gratifyingly turned a neat profit into tho Masquers’ treasury. In connection with this production a recaption was held in tho Social room aftor the final curtain with coffee and doughnuts sorved to members of the eudienco and the cast by a Masquer committeo. All scorned to enjoy this departure and offorts will bo mado to mako it a regular thing. lota 8ota, tho local group of Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dramatic fraternity, has not been very active this year, because all of last year's charter members with the exception of the director, have left the campus. In recognition of their contributions to the dramatic program on this campus. Lois Bernd, Alice Boardman. Jean Erlandson, Elaine Ball, Nona McCollow and Marilyn Mercord have been elected to membership in the fraternity.Dodge. Cotoee, Beatea. Lonoa. Warwick. Mill Pfihoor.

Through the combined efforts of students and faculty, a homecoming in miniature was presented in the south hall gymnasium Tuesday evening, October 26. The gymnasium was the scene of much oxcitement from 7 until 10 o'clock. A parade consisting of floats which represented the various school organizations was led into the room by the pep band. True to the old homecoming tradition, these floats were judged, top honors going to the float sponsored by the Language Club. The mass meeting, at which Dr. Kettleliamp presided as master of ceremonies, had as guests of honor the present faculty members who can boast River Falls State Teachers College as their alma mater. The coronation of the queen, Reuben Johnson, brought the meeting to a fitting climax. Football teams composed of girls battled through four quarters of gridiron football on the hard gym floor. Following this game, faculty, alumni, and students enjoyed coffee and doughnuts served by the faculty. Then on Wednesday. October 27. the homecoming festivities were brought to a close by a regulation gamo between St. Olef and the Falls, the Falcons winning, 20 to 12. 0« ri OW, HONOR SOCIETY Melbya, Sampson RURAL LIFE CLUB Ball, Cochran, Smith PALETTE CLUB Trindle, Henrikson, Inman ACE Hoseid, Hanson, Larson, Stronks MIDGARDIANS Weldon, Erickson, Henrikson LANGUAGE CLUB Wiff, Hayes, HarrisHarmoling, Swanion. lonon.
