His brother, Joe Wintering, lost his life in the service as a Marine in the Philippine Islands. May 6, 1942. After the death of his two only sons, the father. Frank W. Winterling, enlisted in the Marines himself and served with credit and honor."Not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions, but there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men Pericles-Funeral Oration.The editors realize that this roster of the service men and women of the River Falls State Teachers College is no doubt incomplete and perhaps inaccurate in some details. Such omissions and inaccuracies are due to the inability or failure of some to respond to the questionnaires whicn were sent by Dean Stratton to all men who had attended the college since 1931. This list is compiled from the replies received and from Dean Stratton's records. Only abbreviations which are commonly known have been used, and at the suggestion of servicemen themselves the more general awards (Victory Medal, Good Conduct Ribbon, etc.) have been omitted. However, a sincere effort has been made to make this a true and valuable record of the part taken by our men and women in World War II. Additions and corrections will be appreciated by the editors.FREDERIC -A- HARRY AAMODT, B.S., Agr.,1945. .SPRING VALLEY Sst., U.S. Army, Medical Corps. Feb. 9, 1942 RUSSELL B.

He was a gentleman in the truest sense of that term, courteous, friendly, considerate and fair, with a high appreciation of the real values and finer things in life. It is qualities such as these which indicate the worth of a man as an official as well as a citizen and these qualities were reflected in Mr. Richard's discharge of his duties as Regent. We have lost a man who had a deep hold on our affections because of his superlative personal qualities. J. H. AMES.DR.

If this be true, River Falls State Teachers College represents the contribution of J. H. Ames to teacher education. For twenty-nine years he has been president of this college and has seen it grow from a normal school largely concerned with professional subjects to a degree granting institution of high reputation in the state. Indeed, it is in no small way the lengthened shadow of this man. J. H. Ames was the son of a father whose life was spent in Wisconsin's great timber areas. He was educated first in the rural schools of Outagamie County and later graduated from the normal school at Stevens Point. In this area he started his teaching career. The administrative field soon interested him and he became supervising principal of Cumberland, Ellsworth, and Stanley before turning to the University, where, under Frederic Jackson Turner and Carl Russel Fish, his first love for history was kindled. This field of study had a strong hold on him throughout his whole life, even though most of his energies have been spent in administration. In 1909 Mr. Ames joined the social science staff at River Falls Normal, but soon left it for a position with the University Extension at Eau Claire. However, in 1914 he was recalled to River Falls where he became superintendent of the Training School, a position he held until appointed president in 1917. In these twenty-nine years of service, President Ames has directed the institution through nothing short of a revolution. He regards the metamorphosis from a normal school to a college, and the recognition of the new stature of the institution by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities, as the principal historical fact of the last twenty-nine years. Plant expansion has followed, not led, the growth of the school over the years. In this period has been added a new wing to North Hall, a new Manual Arts Building, the college farm, Ramer Field, and the infirmary; now in process of construction is an apartment building for veterans. Prexy at tho gamo.The transition from normal school to college is better shown in the training of the faculty. In 1917 one-third of the teaching staff did not have the bachelor's degree, over one-third had the baccalaureate, and less than one-third had the master's hood. Today nearly all of the staff have the master’s degree and most of them have graduate training above that. The curriculum of twenty-nine years ago had in it 194 courses below college grade offered to students who were not high school graduates. When, in 1927, the four-year course of study leading to the bachelor's degree was established, an important break was made with the past; and since then standards of admission and quality of teaching have steadily risen. It is no accident that President Ames had the complete confidence of the governing board in those years when the college was being built. His long experience in teaching and administration, his great interest in one field of learning in particular and of learning in general, his creative drive that has caused him to become the coauthor of four American history texts and one volume on education in Wisconsin, these factors explain much about how the solid basis upon which he has slowly built here has been recognized by the governing regents. Faculty and students who have lived and worked with him will always remember that his counsel was good and his attitudes not subject to whim or fancy. The college, let it here be recorded, is in a large sense the result not only of historic forces that affected all institutions of higher learning in this period but also the result of wise stewardship for over a quarter of a century. The administration of J. H. Ames is now committed to history. It should be a comfort to him in his remaining years to know that future administrations are not likely to tear down that which he built, but more probably will build on from where he left off.

Miss Wiesenthal passed away last February at her home in St. Paul. She graduated from the River Falls Normal School in 1912 and, after a year in the high school at Alma, Wisconsin, accepted a position in the grades of the St. Paul public schools. Later she completed a course at the University of Minnesota and taught successively in Central and Murray high schools in St. Paul. She organized the business department in the latter and was carrying oh that work at the time of her death. She compiled- the material for the penmanship manual of the St. Paul schools and had charge of the high school paper at the Murray school. During her entire teaching career she was always one of the instructors selected to have practice teachers, seniors from the University of Minnesota and other Twin Cities colleges, working under her supervision—"a splendid reflection on her early training received at River Falls," her sister says. Miss Wiesenthal was also active in club, church and charitable organizations. She was interested in art and completed many interesting pieces of work. Among her personal effects was found a sum of money, twenty-five dollars, the proceeds of a reunion banquet of River Falls graduates held in Minneapolis some years ago and marked to be kept for some worthy cause. Her sisters have given that money to the MEMORIAL MELETEAN, and the editors gratefully acknowledge that gift. Associated with Miss Wiesenthal on the staff of that first MELETEAN were Robert Moser as business manager and Homer Elertson as one of the art editors. Homer Elertson became one of the most distinguished artists in the United States, with his work widely exhibited. Professor J. H. Ames, now President Ames, was the faculty adviser. A sister of Miss Wiesenthal, Gertrude, now Mrs. John P. Gunderson, was also on the staff. Harvey Fletcher, who later gave his life in the service as a reconnaissance officer in France in World War I, was an athletic editor and gave the annual its name. A weekly paper, the Badger, had formerly been published by the school, and the year book was in a way an outgrowth of this. However, the staff did not wish to keep the name, since it was that of the annual published at the University of Wisconsin, so the Latin word for badger, and the scientific name of the European badger — meles — was chosen, and from it was formed — 7%eCetea tMELBYE WIFF 1946 TfteCeteaa Editors LOUISE MELBYE SHIRLEY WIFF MARIE BRESLIN Assistants JOHN RUSSELL DONALD SANDVE PATRICIA COX BETTY BOE FRED KROEGER Photographer VIRGIL BYNG Typists KATHLEEN REID DONNA OLSON Faculty Adviser MAUD A.

Norris Crist and Charles White placed first; John Bradley and Louis Daniel second. At the same tournament Louis Daniel was awarded first place in oratory. (His oration, "Co-operation or Conquest," has been published in the Congressional Record of April, 1946.) In the St. Thomas Debate Tournament with fifty men.'s teams competing, Norris Crist and Charles White, with seven other teams, entered the finals. Norris and Charles, were rated third in reference to the fifty teams debating in the contest.

CHORUS The college chorus, directed by Miss Wharton, participated in one of the most outstanding music events of this area on May 8, when it joined with the augmented River Falls Methodist choir and a large community chorus from New Richmond in presenting Mendelssohn's highly dramatic oratorio "Elijah." The college orchestra furnished the accompaniment to the hundred-voice choir. The entire performance was directed by Miss Pfitznor. the college orchestra director. Mr. Steinbron, a student at college, and Mrs. Allan Hanna, a former student, were among the soloists at this concert.BLITHE SPIRIT @oMeye TKaAqoceru OFFICERS VERA FINSTAD...................................................PRESIDENT LOUELLYN REISS -..........................................VICE-PRESIDENT MARION HOPE....................................- SECRETARY BETTY PATTERSON................................................TREASURER CARLETON AMES.........................FACULTY ADVISER AND COACH The year began as usual for the College Masquers with a picnic for prospective new members at the Parle. A large attendance promised great things, but only some fifteen to twenty proved to be sufficiently interested to be initiated two weeks later. The first production of the year, Noel Coward's BLITHE SPIRIT, was underway fairly early. Presented on November 29, this "improbable farce" won an enthusiastic approval from the audience. Terry Hayes as "Charles." Mary Forthun as "Ruth" and Pat Patterson as "Elvira" were particularly acclaimed. On the following night this Eduction was taken to Hudson and presented in the Hudson High School auditorium. audience was disappointingly small, but the play was very well received. In January the cast and director of Blithe Spirit attended the production of the same play at the University of Minnesota Theatre. Dr. Whiting's kindness in inviting us Deck stage was greatly appreciated. The organization chose instead of a play for the spring production to stage a night club in the North Hall Gymnasium under the titie GAY NINETIES CABARET. With the assistance of a number of people from outside the club, a very successful affair was held on the evenings of March 21 and 22. A most talented floor show provided entertainment at 20-minute intervals throughout the evening. Dancing to the music of Steve Cotone's orchestra filled the intervals. Pop, Coca Cola, hotdogs, cheerios and popcorn dispensed by faculty men who served as waiters, fed the inner man. Full houses for both evenings acclaimed the event as "the most fun in years," and gratify-ingly replenished a treasury depleted by the small audiences of war years. The annual banquet in April was well attended, as officers were chosen for 1946-47. ALPHA PSI OMEGA - IOTA BETA CAST The local cast of the national honorary dramatic fraternity has not been very active, principally due to small membership during the war. Prospects look better for next fear as eight new members were initiated in April, he membership in this fraternity is the reward of those Masquers whose contribution to dramatic activities on this campus has been outstanding.

Under tneir new coach, George K. Schlaugenhauf, the boys ployed remarkable ball, considering that several had not even high school experience. Mr. Schlaugenhauf comes to us from St. Croix Falls where he was coach for eighteen years, excepting for one year at Madison East High. He is a graduate of Lawrence College, where he participated in athletics. The first game of the season found River Falls nosing out a powerful Eau Claire eleven by a 6-0 score. Gordon Schock paced the Felcons. The following week-end the Falcons found themselves on the short end of a 19-6 score at Hamline University of St. Paul. Over at Menomonie the Falcons won their second game of the season by beating Stout Institute, 14-6. The game was more decisive for the Falcons than the score indicates, as Stout was totally outplayed. Walter Wirz did a beautiful job of ball carrying for the Falcons. The homecoming game found Superior nosing out River Falls, 14-6, in an evenly matched game. Superior had a rugged, well-balanced team, while River Falls had the speed. The Falcons lost a heartbreaker at Eau Claire the following week, by the close score of 7-6. The Bears' score came on a quick play through the line good for 75 yards and a touchdown. The Falcons, lead by Wirz and Schock, put on a sustained drive in tho final minutes but were on the Bears' 30-yard line when the game ended. The final game of the season was played at Luther College of Decorah, Iowa. Luther outplayed the Falcons during the first half and led, 6-0, but River Falls roared back to score 13 points in the second half to win, 13-6.

During vacation they beat St. Olaf. 35-32. The boys started the new year out right by turning in their best performance in whipping Stevens Point Teachers, 57-37. Bud Foss was the star for the winners. From then on the Falcons could not get rolling and dropped their last eleven games. We still had quite a few hard-fought ball games: Milwaukee nosed us out, 43-38. in a high spirited game. We then went over to Menomonie and were tripped by Stout. 44-41, the lead changing constantly throughout the game. Up at Superior the Yellowjackets won. 47-43, but they had to score four points in the last thirty seconds to do it. Outstanding for the Falcons were Bud Foss at guard and Don Baird at center. Jim Moore turned in brilliant performances as relief center. INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL The Intramural basketball season was a success as keen competition on the part of the various houses put out such teams as the famous "Rapid Rabbits." "House of Nelson," "Flying Dutchmen." "Battle Babies," and the undefeated champions, "Six Old Men," composed of former Falcon stars and the faculty. A complete schedule was played as well as a tournament.ScwefaUl 1946 The spring athletic program featured the revival of a full schedule in baseball. The lack of men in 1944 caused a lapse of the game and in 1945 only a limited schedule was played. This year many of the players have played for the Falcons in previous years. The squad consists of: Lyle Nelson, Earl Picha, Ken Poppy, Dan Demulling, Gordon Vine, Willard Jacobson, Orville Thompson, Bob Fellows, Don Horn, Virgil Martinson, Eddie Greschner, Jim Redmond, Bob Thayer, Lee Dobberstein, Dick Tracy, Carl Wichman, Arland Hollander, Albert Tscheudy, and Lemoyne Olson.

PRESIDENT IONE ENGEN - VICE-PRESIDENT PATRICIA NIEDZWIECKI - SECRETARY-TREASURER A sport for every girl keynoted the athletic program outlined by the W.A.A. with volleyball, basketball, and softball heading the team sports, while individual instruction was given in tennis, badminton, swimming, and archery. Volleyball, under the direction of Mrs. Lichtenstein, with Pat Cox as student manager, was the first team sport of the year. In a five-game tournament, Phylis Rasmussen’s team defeated the team captained by "Pat" Skane in four games, while dropping only one. The games were hotly contested, as the scores of 21-19, 17-21, 21-15, 21-18, and 21-19 will testify. At the conclusion of the tournaments an honor team of twelve players who showed outstanding teamwork was chosen, the members of which received 100 W.A.A. points.

VOLLEYBALL - BASKETBALL - SWIMMINGCartor Engon Niedxwiocki Badminton: Cox, Carter, Basketball season started with two teams, the "Sausages," led by Ruth Seekamp, and Pat Cox's "Crisco Mules," battling for the championship in a five-game series highlighted by fast breaking attacks, close guarding, and smooth ball-handling. The "Crisco Mules' " strong offensive play was the deciding factor, giving them four wins and one loss. The "Sausages" bounced back in a second tournament to defeat the "Crisco Mules" in two out of three games; the under-the-basket sharp-shooting of Bonnie Carter brightened this otherwise mediocre tournament. An honor team of eleven girls was selected by Coach Lichtenstein and student manager, Lois Brandt, at the close of the season. Softball, the team sport for the spring term, was under the direction of Miss Mary Louise Branstad, who reassumed her duties as physical education director after serving with the United States armed forces. Doreen Barfknecht was the student manager of this sport. Instruction in tennis and archery got under way to get the spring term off to a flying start. Two round robin badminton tournaments followed immediately as a part of the spring term's concentration on individual sports. The winners were Bonnie Carter, who won all of her matches in the tournament for advanced players, and Pat Cox, who won the beginners' tournament. Recreational swimming and swimming instructions were provided for in the W.A.A. program. Senior life-saving certificates were awarded to eight girls who qualified in the Red Cross senior life-saving class conducted by Donna Olson.

LILA ESTENSON, BETTE REID. BETTY PETERSON The event which called back many of the alumni and friends of RFSTC was the first big homecoming for three years. During this week of October 22-27 many of the student houses were being decorated with "welcome back" signs. The House of Collins, which had its front lawn turned into a miniature football field where the Falcon captured the Hornets' Nest, received top honors. The Pep Rally on Friday evening, led by Dr. Kettlekamp, the Master of Ceremonies, brought everyone present to a high state of excitement. The Crowning of Queen Betty Peterson wos the main event of the Rally. A roaring bonfire on the old football field attracted many, where, after yells and singing. a snake dance started with about one hundred brave souls participating. On Saturday the game with Superior had all the interest in the afternoon and. although River Falls lost the game by the score of 14-6, the festive mood was not dampened and a large crowd gathered in the evening at the Homecominq dance. Terry Hayes, as Master of Ceremonies, announced the highly interesting floor show of a skit, a dance by Pat Patterson, a piano solo by Delores Payson, and numbers by the men's quartet. Much of the credit for the success of this Homecoming should go to Chairman Frank Pappenfuss and his committee. May it be said of future homecomings as it was of the 1945 Homecoming—"a big event successfully carried through in good spirits."o«n MARGUERITE BAIRD, EUGENE WIRZ A return to normal was the feeling of the 1946 promenaders when they attended the first prom since 1942. Moonlight and roses was the theme of the Junior Prom held in North Hall Gym on May II, led by Eugene Wirz. the Junior Class president, and his queen, Marguerite Baird. In carrying- out the moonlight and roses theme, the decoration committee. Beth Davis. Lorraine Thannum, Hildegarde Huppert, Eugene Wirz, Steven Cotone. Marvin Erd man, Patricia Niedzwiecki, and Millicent Slcone. glorified the Gym with a ceiling of deep blue and sides of a contrasting blue shade. Picket fences and trellises covered with roses of every color—pink, white, yellow, and American Beauty—along with the garden n one comer, made the 1946 Junior Prom one long to be remembered.Tt totten vutiv zl TERRY HAYES. BONNIE CARTER One of the outstanding events of the college year of 1945-1946 was the Winter Carnival held February 15 and 16 under the sponsorship ot the Student benate. George White as General Chairman had the following as his committee chairmen: Jack Russell and Faith Griffith - • " Sports Patricia Cox..............................- Advertising ShiHey Wiff........................................Refreshments Fred Kroeger and Millicent Skone - King-Queen Lyman Morrow - Orchestra • Anna Mae Hoseid - “ Dance The camivaPbegan with a pep rally led by the cheerleaders on Friday afternoon. Chuck White, the master of ceremonies, introduced the band numbers and the skit, written and produced by Pat Cox. The results of the king and queen election which has been arousing much interest were announced. The votes, which totaled at several thousands for the candidates (at one hundred votes for one cent), made Bonnie Carter our Queen and Terry Hayes our King. The new "Hubba Hubba" yell, introduced by the cheerleaders, made a hit with the carnival enthusiasts and things were off to a good start. Friday night, in spite of the courageous fighting of River Falls. Superior won a victory over the home team with a score of 43-32. This defeat, however, was not enough to quell the spirit of the occasion. The coronation of the King and Queen took place during the halves of the game. Chuck White read the ceremony and crowned Terry and Bonnie King and Queen of the 1946 Carnival.Activities on Saturday began at one o'clock with skating events at the high school rink. Awards were made to the following for their activities at the rink: Jo Ann Cole.................Skating Exhibition Beth Davis Amy Anderson...................Girls' Egg Races Jo Ann Cole Donna Olson Amy Anderson................Girls' Relay Races Jo Ann Cole Warren Johnson..............Men's Egg Races Donn Webster John Ronnigen...............Men's Relay Races Norris Crist With skating activities completed, those interested in skiing and tobogganing were taken to Hovde's, a site chosen by the committee. These activities were shortened by an unfortunate toboggan accident, but no one was seriously injured and the carnival went on. The dance in South Hall gym. decorated in River Falls' red and white, climaxed the carnival fun. Even some of the accident cases of the afternoon managed to hobble far enough to have a side-line seat, anyway. The Carnival of 1946 was a success, thanks to George White, his committee, and to the fine schoo' spirit o' every person participating. GEORGE WHITECrist, Estonson, Ponce, Baird, Estonson, Skono.
