THE 9nU 1942 PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF CENTRAL STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE STEVENS POINT. WISCONSINCARL E. TORKELSON Editor-in-Chief JEAN MEYDAM Business Manager T. A. ROGERS BERTHA GLENNON Faculty Advisersr EE IV FORTY TWO CENTRAL STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE STEVENS POINT. WISCONSINT A O Miss Lulu Mansur, our former librarian, we dedicate this Iris. We respect her for her untiring efforts to make our library outstanding; we admire her for her unselfish service to others and for her genuine interest in all students; we love her for her good humor, her sunny smile, and her keen wit.Gante+iti This section includes the faculty, the deans, the office staff, and the health service—those people who keep our college running so Tin moolhly and eHectively. „ also includes the various departments of the school, the graduates, and the underclassmen— those who benefit from efficient and pleasant college surroundings. Activities comprise an important part of student life at Central Stato. The musical organizations, the publications, forensics, drama- T,m AH»vine . Hc8. lhe „ocial organiia. tions, and athletics offer to each of us the opportunity to make our college life interesting and worthwhile. Homecoming, the Christmas Concert, the Senior Ball. Junior Prom—these are but a few of the activities which have become im- Tin- Trii'lition portan( CSTC. They have grown Into campus life, and are long remembered by each of us. 5T HIS is your IRIS. It is our sincere wish that you'll brush the dust from the covers once in a while, and look back on this year with satisfaction—whether you were a freshman, senior, sophomore, or junior. The purpose of this annual has been to present various aspects of school life of the past year:, .homecoming, athletics, the Greeks, theater, the publications, forensics, student council, band, orchestra, glee clubs, concerts, religious organizations, clubs, and even Saturday classes—in short all the persons and activities that have made your life on the campus of Central State Teachers College well- it i: v o it it rounded and full. May this, the 1941-1942 IRIS, enable you to take a glance behind the scenes at Central State, and help you to re-enjoy all the experiences of the past 7 school year.t ii i: 7 4e GoUetje. Admimsthatiox TFhE actions and decisions of an administration are for the good of the student body and for the betterment of the entire college. Likewise, a college prospers and grows as long as the administration works together in harmony and understanding. Judicious advice given by our administrators. President Wm. C. Hansen and Regent Wilson S. Delzell, expression of youthful ambitions and desires by the Student Council, thoughtful and thorough care of student ills by Dr. Fred A. Marrs and Nurse Mary Neuberger, and efficient business transactions by the office staff have made this school year, 1941-1942, one of the most successful in the history of 10 CSTC.In OCTOBER, 1940, students and faculty alike were pleased to learn that William C. Hansen had been chosen by the Board of Regents at Madison to be the new president at CSTC. The fact that he was an alumnus of Central State and had had such varied experience in the teaching and administrative field seemed to indicate that the college would thrive under his leadership. Time has proved this supposition correct. Upon assuming his office, Mr. Hansen stated that his objective as president of the college was to see that "the college offered the maximum in training good teachers who will find a demand for their services.” He has not failed to meet this objective. Since Mr. Hansen became president, he has been untiring in his efforts for the college. Already can be seen the results of new things begun and old ones improved. We look forward to great progress for CSTC. A an.icii To know the real Mr. Hansen, one should talk to him personally. That conversation would probably run from trout fishing to lemon chiffon pie. for these are his favorite "hobbies”. Then, too. our "prexy” might tell of his interest in building things and how he remodeled his cottage at the lake. From there, the subject might easily change to his family. He has four daughters— three of whom are attending the University of Wisconsin, and the youngest, who is a sophomore in the local high school. With a little encouragement. President Hansen would convincingly give his views on student government, for this also is one of his hobbies, and a mighty good one, too. 11m: s I""IeRBERT R. STEINER, dean of men at this college since 'way back when', is now, more than ever, the fount of advice. His opinions, weighty with experience, good judgment, and keen insight, are respected both by the faculty and students, men and women alike. Besides being the dean of men, Mr. Steiner is the teacher of several history classes which are every year, filled to capacity. He is extremely popular with his pupils, because he succeeds in injecting pungent humour and interesting sidelights into all of his lectures. Proof of his long-lived popularity lies in the fact that twenty-three and one-half years ago, he was appointed dean of men upon the insistent petitions of those boys who were students here at the time. His sympathetic and understanding personality, his brusque good-naturedness, and his ability for conversation on all timely subjects have won and will continue to win him a place in the hearts and minds of the students at Central State Teachers College. M RS. Elizabeth Pfiffner, capable dean of women, has been at Central State Teachers College for only two years, but already she has become a valued member of its administrative staff. Not content merely to suggest helpful changes, she has worked energetically to carry them out for the best interests of the school and of the girls. In addition to being dean. Mrs. Pfiffner is also in residence at Nelson Hall. Here, in cooperation with Mrs. Elizabeth Jelinek, efficient director of Nelson Hall. Dean Pfiffner helps to guide the dormites in their problems of daily living. She was responsible for the inauguration of a domitory council which carries out the provisions for self-government drawn up by the girls themselves. As dean of women, she has many responsibilities, but she is always smiling—she is never too busy to help every girl. Her eyes light up as she tells one about the new office she moved into last fall, and whether she is in her spacious office or at the dormitory, she is a gracious hostess. 12 REGENT M R. Delzell brings to Central State as regent of our college a rare combination of training and experience for the position which he holds. Reared as he was in a home where the profession of teaching was always the chief interest, he has a sympathy for and an understanding of that phase of our educational program. He himself was graduated from a state teachers' college, taught school, and was a supervising principal at one time. Later he completed the law course at the University of Nebraska and was admitted to the bar. At the present time he is engaged in business and is one of the most successful in his field. Because Mr. Delzell's background is what it is and because he possesses a remarkably public-spirited attitude in all civic matters, his appointment to the Board of Regents was welcomed by our college, the community, and the state. Although he has held this official relationship to Central State for only a comparatively short time, we already feel the results of his contribution and deeply appreciate it. Regent Delzell's father, the late lames E. Delzell who was affectionately known to all the students as "Uncle fimmy." was Director of the Primary Division here for many years. Mrs. Wilson Delzell. the former Ruth Oster, is a graduate of our Home Economics Department. Three of the Delzell children. Robert, who is now studying medicine at the University of Wisconsin, James, a cadet at Northwestern Military Academy and Suzanne, a freshman at P. J. Jacobs High School, completed their elementary and junior high school courses in the College Training School here. Wilson, Jr., the youngest son in the Delzell family, is now a pupil in the fifth grade at the Training School. 13OFFICE STAFF The newest addition to the office staff is Miss Loretta Gonering. She is a most competent secretary and already has proved herself to be effective in carrying out the many responsibilities that are hers in the registrar's office. Another member of the office staff whom we have yet to know better, since she came only last May, is Miss Arline Mayville. She is already familiar to us for her brisk businesslike manner and her willingness to supply information to those who seek it at her desk daily. Although these two members of the office staff are comparatively new. we still claim priorities on efficient Miss Carolyn Rolfson. She is secretary-treasurer of the college board of administration, and rumor has it that it is no small task. It is as financial secretary-treasurer, that Miss Rolfson handles all business matters transacted the whole year round. She deserves much credit for her remarkable perseverence and for the way she accepts her duties—she enjoys it all, because, in her own words, "there is something new and different every day." The other mainstay of this busy office staff is Miss Marie Swallow, who is the very capable secretary at the Training School. Her job there must keep her hopping, because we catch sight of her only when she makes occasional business visits to the home office up on the second floor. Miss Rolfson and Miss Swallow are roommates. Their interests and hobbies are rather allied, in that Miss Rolfson collects antique glassware, and Miss Swallow has accumulated quite a bit of antique plateware. They both enjoy travelling and have made several extensive excursions together. 14HEALTH SERVICE Regular student health service is an indispensable part ol the daily life at CSTC. The helpfulness and skill of Dr. F. A. Marrs and Nurse Mary Neuberger have made a success of this health service in the past. This year, especially. have new developments been made in regard to the health and well-being of the student body at Central State. One feature of the health service which our college offered to its students this year is entirely new. This feature is free hospitalization for each student. The college has made arrangements with the local St. Michael's Hospital to furnish five days of free hospitalization in a semi-private room for any regularly enrolled student during the college year. This may be needed because of accident or illness. There are a number of restrictions which students should observe, however. One restriction is that the hospitalization must be on the recommendation of the college physician. Dr. Marrs. or. in his absence, on the recommendation of Miss Neuberger. During the one to five days that the college pays for this hospitalization, the use of operating room anesthetic or ordinary dressings will also be taken care of by the college. The regular health services which have been provided in the past will be continued as usual. Each new student is given a complete medical examination and tests are announced from time to time. Dr. Marrs and Miss Neuberger are available for consultation in the health center during regular office hours. Each student is entitled to one home call by the college physician during the year without charge. Miss Neuberger also makes such home calls as are necessary without charge. More and more students have come to avail themselves of this health service offered by the college. Evidently they have come to believe (as Dr. Marrs and Miss Neuberger do) that "a little attention at the right time may prevent serious illness later which may interfere with college work." 15STUDENT COUNCIL Late last fall President Hansen appointed a committee consisting of the advisers of each class, each class president, and one other member of each class to meet together and draw up a constitution for a Student Council. The committee met several times and also wrote to other colleges to find out what their student government organizations were like. Finally, early last January the committee presented to the school and to President Hansen their proposed constitution. A council to consist of twenty members, four from each class and one from each division was proposed. This council would meet twice a month, deal with problems involving students, provide a medium through which student opinion might be ex- pressed, and act as a connecting and strengthening link between students and faculty. The constitution was approved by the lopsided student vote of 159 to 9, and a few days later council members were elected to serve with the original committee. Since its formation, the Student Council has found many things to do. One of its first acts was to approve a schedule for the election of class officers at a regular time each fall. The Council also sponsored "Eddie Kotal Day", honoring C.S.T.C.'s coach who is leaving to join the coaching staff of the Green Bay Packers. They presented him with a wrist watch purchased by the contributions from the student body. Cjevetnuienl oj the (Peeptcy 16 STANDINC: M. Sharkoy. L. Potlutsny. T. Xurtzw il. A. Schwartz. R.

Have you noticed? And Mr. Mott, although he looks rather serious and businesslike here, is always ready and willing to stop and chat. Our new librarian, Mr. Kampenga, has already won a niche all his own in the daily life of the school. His friendly smile makes the library a pleasing place in which to work. Then there's Mr. Kotal—we'll miss that friendly "hello", Coach! Mr. Herrick, as usual, is busy at his desk, probably trying to work out some new improvement for his beloved training school. What's this? A faculty get-together? Really, our professors seem to be having more fun than we have at one of our parties—notice the big smiles on the faces of Mr. Schmeeckle, Miss Greiling, and Mrs. Pfiffner. Could they be laughing at something Mr. Watson has said? HANSON HARRIS HANSON, GERTIE L. Geography and Radio Diploma, La Cross© Stat© Normal School. 1914: Ph. B., University of Wisconsin. 1930: Ph.

Speaking of convincing people, could Mr. Burroughs be pondering over a set of debate arguments? Miss Colman seems intent on v hatever subject she is speaking about. Evidently she needs her hands to supply her exact meaning, for they do supplement the facial expression— which ordinarily would be enough in itself! Usually Mr. Jenkins rushes about with an abstracted air attending to various important affairs. But this time the camera man caught him at his desk—and a nice, smiling picture is the result. Our little Miss Mason is busy as usual. What book could be catalogued on that interesting little card? It's been said that the Men's Glee Club would do almost anything for their director. And here we can see why. Mr. Knutzen puts heart and soul into all he is doing for his "boys". PIERCE PIERSON PIERCE. BURTON R. Training School Diploma. Stevens Point State Normal School. 1921; Ph.

It's all right for him to look studious when pondering over his music, but for Dr. Pierson to look as jovial as he does, is all out of keeping with his occupation. For you see, he's passing out his little examination papers noted for their difficulty! Dr. Reppen seems to be working with numbers, which job really belongs to those mathematical wizards, Dr. Nixon and Mr. Thompson. Mr. Schmeeckle is contented with his books and papers. Could it be Chemistry, Conservation, or Athletics he is thinking about? It looks as if Dr. Tolo might be enjoying a banquet with the Chi Delts. And we do mean enjoying it! Mr. Steiner, our guess is that you're before a history class and in the midst of one of your famous lectures. And from the smile on your face, the subject must be humorous as well as interesting!

They were: Pre- sident. "Louie" Posluszny, who comes from Chicago Heights. Illinois; Vice-president, "Doc" Kulidas. another Chicago Heights boy; Secretary. Florence Theisen of Loyal, Wisconsin. These three people are enrolled in the High School Division. Our treasurer was Gertrude Rondeau from Mosinee. enrolled in the Intermediate Department. [These people have proved themselves able leaders of an outstanding class.] 39Junior Class TOP ROW: L. Abrahamson. W. Andorson. W. Nikolai. A. Barber. M. Booth. K. Brenner. V. Brunner 3rd ROW: N.

J. Goodrich, D. Hanlsh. J. Hlava, E. Jake!, G. Jooston Did I hear the word, "juniors''? They must be talking about us. Many people know us because we are now upperclassmen. Would some of the rest of you like to hear about us? We have done so many things; it will be fun to recall them. O. K. Let's talk about us. Again this year our class has maintained its interest in music. We have many representatives in each of the musical organizations. Juniors who took an active interest in the band are Lois Andre, "Pat" Carver, Gladys Conover. Olive Crawford. "Bob" Dietrich, Gloria Joosten, Marjorie Loberg, "Bud" Nelson, Jack Perry, "D. J." Raddant, Florence Theisen, and Tom Wishlinski. The glee clubs used our vocalists profitably. Remember all those sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses who made that "Hallelujah Chorus" as mighty as it was? Then you'll remember the following juniors, too: Gertrude Rondeau. Elaine Teske, Olive Crawford, Lois Andre, Isla Wood. Gunvor Nelson, "Pat" Maquire, Kathleen Cody. Elaine Jakel, Lois Vanderhei-den, Neva Burroughs, Florence Theisen. Mary Louise Butter, "Pat" Carver. "D. J." Raddant. Marjorie Nelson, Marjorie I-oberg, Lennert Abrahamson, Eldred Judd. Adrian I-a Brot, "Bob" Malecki, "Jim" Neuenfeldt, Roger Olson, Duane Phaneuf, "Jim" Saunders, Fred Schwier-ske, Carl Torkelson. By the way, "Gertie" was the Chairman of the wonderful Easter Concert 40Junior Class the Girls' Glee Club and Orchestra put on this spring. Mentioning the orchestra, we were represented by Betty Vonderlieth. Marjorie Loberg, Gloria Joosten, "Bob" Rifleman. "Bob" Dietrich, "Bud" Nelson, and Florence Theisen. We don't like to brag but look at the grand group of sports people we have.—Bill Carnahan, Joe Goodrich, Frank Koehn, "Louie" Po-sluszny, Leon Kalkofen, and we dare not forget the girls like Virginia Lundgren, Marjorie Nelson, Mary Louise Butter, "Pat" Carver, and Jean Meydam. We were glad to share them all with you, though. Radio work has fascinated many students including Lennert Abrahamson, Duane Pha- neuf, and "Bob" Rifleman. As we watch them we know they take their work seriously but enjoy every minute of it. During the last semester Glendy Chapin held a very responsible position at Nelson Hall. She was head waitress and did a splendid job. The school publications claimed the time of many of our ambitious people—"Doc" Kuli-das, "Bob" Malecki, Janet Hlava, Maxine Ma-Guire, Jean Meydam. Carl Torkelson, Florence Theisen. You must have seen them hurrying and scurrying around with a notebook, or at least a pencil. You have seen us on the stage, too. Remember?—Iris Precourt, Isla Wood and Marjorie Nelson. TOP ROW: E. Judd. F. Kalkolen. L. Kalkolen F. Koehn. D. Xordut. J. Krueqer. J. Kulidas 3rd ROW: A. La Brot. E. Lang . V. L . M. Lob rg. G.

Many times, especially in instrumental or vocal solo work, the soloist is given all the honors. May we at this time acknowledge the patience and faithful cooperation of our junior accompanists, Marjorie Loberg and Melba Waag. We really appreciate them. Enough of us as individuals—we are a class, you know. We are a good representative of "School Spirit". We like to do things; we like to go places. You see us at any school function. Remember seeing us at the informal dances, Greek dances, school parties and "just around"? You won't forget our Junior Prom, will you? We had a wonderful time and we hope that you did, too. That's a big job to handle, but we knew we could do it. (Quit that bragging!) We. as juniors, are professionally minded, too; we are interested in our departmental progress. We find time to become acquainted with the Training School. The other day a junior said, "Just imagine, I filled out my senior rating card!" Yes. seniors, we are ready to carry on what you so worthily upheld. We hope the present uncertain conditions will not hinder our ambitions. 42Sophomore Officers O UR class was a big one to handle but our class officers did a fine job. They were: President. "Terry" Kurtzweil, mem- ber of the High School Division (who took an exceptional interest in the newly organized Student Council); Vice-president, Frank Friday, also in the High School Division; Secretary. Esther Moreau, member of the Primary Council; and Treasurer. Ruth Michelsen, another member of the Primary Council.

We were plenty active as freshmen but this year we have worked and played still harder. Most of us have found at least one interest other than our academic work. As a class we are very sports-minded. Maybe it is because our own ''Mike" Blissett. with the other cheerleaders, led us in cheers for "dear old Central State". Then, too, our class claims many of the school's sport heroes, among them being Fred Fink, Jay Swett, Ray Terzynski, Louis Erdman, Edwin Szymanski, Ray Warren. Even though we love to cheer for the fellows, there are some of the girls who like to play the game themselves. They spent much time in the gym and game room—"Mike" Blissett, Mary Kaye Geer, Alice Grube. Mae Hoffman, Kathryn Kelly. Harriet Coey, Ethel Lawrence, "Polly" Parrott, "Gen" Smith, and more. A few of us find an interest in participating in dramatic productions. You will remember seeing us—Phyllis Eckels, Helen Firkus, Frank UPPER PICTURE- TOP ROW: Lloyd. Spark . PUol. Ua. Stay.

Reinhart Schroeder, Bob Schunk, Jim Smith, Frank Steckel, Gordon Steinfest, Grant Thayer, and Robert Torkelson. By the way. we are expecting fine things of that bass voice of Bob Torkel-son's. The orchestra has some of its prominent chairs filled by us—"Gust” Bentz, "Jackie" Stauber, John Edwards, Ruth Michelsen, Norbert Karau, "Lettie" Gotchy. You have all seen Merle Jenks and his girl friend. "Bertha" (the college bus) around. Ask the members of the Girls' Glee Club how gallantly he "serenaded" them on their return trips. We'd really call him an ideal bus driver and he is a sophomore. Marie Collins is an ambitious sophomore over at Nelson Hall. It is up to her to check on all meetings in the Recreation Room. She has been doing a good job because we haven't been hearing of any embarrassing minutes when two groups were scheduled to meet at the same time in the same place. It has always been said, "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Well, the girls at the "dorm" have fallen in love with Virginia Warren's wonderful food. Did you ever taste the excellent rolls and cookies Virginia makes? And she puts a smile in every batch, too. Who is the fellow we see running around school with a camera, flash bulbs, and all that goes with it? He is a sophomore, of course, by the name of "Chuck" Larsen. His business is to take pictures for this publication, "Smile! Hold it! That's all!" Some of us ask you a lot of questions many times but we are just trying to get news for the Pointer and we want it to be correct. Remember us?—"Jackie" Stauber, Jeanne Peters, Violet Joyce. Carol Smith and Carol Ocker-lander. In her column "Pils" seems to find out the right things without asking questions. There are more of us who spend much time in the Pointer office — Hannah Kaufman, John Edwards, Jack Rasmussen. Marjorie Prey. "Don" Becker, and "Bob" Handeyside help handle the business angle of the paper. We have been talking to you about ourselves for quite awhile, but we feel we can talk to you freely because we know you all so much better. We feel more at home this year because we have learned to know more places and more people. We haven't neglected our social obligations one bit. You have seen us at all the "affairs". When we, ourselves, take this Iris off the shelf years later to find familiar faces, we shall admit that our sophomore year at C.S.T.C. was one of the high-lights in our lives.

We have even heard seniors say, "Oh, if I were only a freshmen again!" We are winding up a busy year. Yes, we "went out" for a lot of things other than our studies. For instance, the musical organizations have been using our talents without regret. In fact, we have some noteworthy musicians in our class.

Some of us sing high, and some of us sing low; anyway, we sing!—Ray Craig, James Fichten, Willis Foster, John Mase, August Rademacher, Fred Stassel, Don Walker. The freshmen have a prominent place in that other musical organization on the campus, the orchestra. You must have heard us at the Christmas and Easter Concerts—Margaret Winarski, Roger McCallum, Lelah Ambrose, "Steve'' Speidel, Hansi Rademacher, and Kathryn Bentz. Speaking about the Christmas Concert, remember the excellent piece of work done on the background? We freshmen did a good share of that, at least a few of us. Perhaps you saw Betty Pohlman or Ray Craig trying to get just a little more shadow under an angel's eye, or Alice Breske trying to make the Madonna's mouth sweeter. Other freshmen interested in forensic work are: Sylvia Daul, Rachel Eide, and Lillian La-Marche. Some of the rest of us have found ourselves becoming more interested in formal and informal talks, especially since we have taken the orientation course offered to freshmen. We bet we know more about the history of this school than a lot of you upper-classmen know about it. Thank you, Mrs. Pfiffner, for the interesting course you gave to us. We really be-1 lieve it has given us a better footing from which to grow. One thing a lot of girls "went out" for is sports. We have put our heart and soul into it all year.

Chriat Laah The largest organization on the campus of CSTC consists of the high school department. Students enrolled in the division of secondary education have been organized under the title of the Forum. The high school division includes many of those students who are preparing for medicine, for law. or for some other professional career of that type. Girls enrolled in the home economics department also are an active part of the Forum. 50Forum The program of the high school division lists a general, liberal arts training in the freshman and sophomore years, with specialized study in majors and minors in the junior and senior years. Juniors observe classes in the training school; seniors go into practice teaching there. Extra-curricular activities are especially stressed, because they are of extreme importance to the prospective high school instructor. A high school teacher must be able to direct at least one outside activity if he really wishes to be of service to his school. As a result of this doctrine held by members of the high school division. Forum members "get in the swim" of dramatics, music, honoraries, and publications. Many of the most outstanding students at CSTC are members of the Forum. Mr. Rightsell, the organization's adviser, introduced several interesting speakers at this year's meetings. Forum was very fortunate in having so many helpful and educational talks by prominent members of the profession. Principal Joseph F. Kraus of the local high school told of actual experiences in the field of teaching. Superintendent Floyd Smith of Wisconsin Rapids related qualities necessary for good teachers. One meeting was made valuable by an informative discussion on the science of the profession by President Hansen. Harley Powell, an alumnus of CSTC, now superintendent of schools at Clintonville, also talked to the members. The Forum had a clever homecoming float this year for which it received a delicious box of candy as third prize. The members met early in the fall to elect the following officers: President.................... Floyd Nixon Vice-president ............ Myron Sharkey Secretary-treasurer...........Aloha Walter Bob Schunk was elected Student Council Representative later in the year. 51 TOP ROW: Schwierski. R. Torkelson. Radik . Slock. Joosten.

Waaq The Grammar Round Table progresses steadily under the able leadership of Mr. Watson. Organized in 1918, the organization is made up of every member of the intermediate and the junior high school divisions. The course, formerly of two or three years, has been changed to a full four year curriculum, in order to produce teachers with adequate ability to teach in any of the intermediate or junior high school grades. The Round Table is an extremely active group, willing to do almost anything to help better college life at CSTC. Because of the general freshman course, no new members entered the organization this year, but the old members carried on to keep the club running as smoothly and effectively as it has in the past. Every first Monday of the month finds the members together, discussing ways in which to help themselves prepare for the teaching profession. The members are well acquainted and ready to work together for intellectual growth and for fun. To mention a few of the valuable meetings held this past school year, we have only to scan the club’s calendar. Many interesting ’’man-to-man” talks were given by Mr. Watson. (To quote from the "Pointer"): Feb. 11—"At the regular meeting of Grammar Round Table Mr. Watson gave a background for the understanding of the far Eastern situation." Mar. 4—"Mr. Burton R. Pierce gave an informative talk on "The Problems of an Elementary School Teacher", at the regular meeting of Grammar Round Table, Monday night. Community singing followed the discussion." The members of the organization got together and had an informal discussion among themselves about "Price Control and Inflation". This was sent to many listeners over the radio during the "Purple and Gold Hour". Mr. Jayne, with a series of lectures, taught them the newest developments in visual education. The group had first hand experience by experimenting with the machine and slides. Their social get-togethers are something worth mentioning. The fall party was held in the recreation room of Nelson Hall; everyone was there. Their spring picnic was an enjoyable event with a delicious lunch, and their spring party had no other aim than fun. They achieved it. too. 52 » ram mar Round Table The Grammar Round Table has become increasingly important down through the years. Its members are engaged in all sorts of outside activities. They have been taught not only that "readin', Titin', an' 'rithmetic'' are necessary in the education of children during their intermediate and junior high school years, but also that participation in extra-curricular activities by the prospective teacher while in college is important in providing entertainment and recreation for the children in the future. Grammar Round Table can boast of participants in the music field—Mary Louise Butter, Pat Carver, Rita Novitski, Leone Kulas, and many more. Sigma Tau Delta has Margaret Murrish, Diana Kamke, and others. Madeline LaBrot is very active in athletics. And these are only a few of the members who are outstanding at CSTC. Homecoming really displayed their talents. Their float wasn't the usual car trimmed with streamers, but the whole gang was "not just kidden” as they rode along the line of parade on vehicles they used a few years ago. Dressed in clownish and childish togs, they rode kiddy cars and skooters, but they showed their homecoming spirit like a grown-up. The officers who were responsible for this memorable year were: President.......................Leone Kulas Vice-president .............. Diana Kamke Secretary-treasurer....... Marilyn Lavers Student Council Rep.......Gunvor Nelson Officers elected to govern the group next year are: President..................Ann Zimmerman Vice-president..................Janet Hlava Secretary-treasurer _____ Genevieve SmithPrimary Council The Primary Council is the organization of students enrolled in the primary division. To those students who wish to help small children in the first steps in their education and to prepare them properly for secondary education, the primary division offers a four year curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Education degree. Miss Susan Colman, popular director of the department, has developed the group into a well organized, active organization of which she can well be proud. Her careful guidance is reflected in all "her girls". Likewise, her warm smile and cheerful "hi" create a happy atmosphere, not only among the students in her department, but throughout the entire school. Her deep interest in and her concern for each individual has caused many a faltering foot to steer itself into her cozy office. As it is in the early part of his life that the child's basic character is built, it is vital that the primary teacher has adequate training to perform this work well. In order to fill this requirement, the primaries start their actual training much earlier than students in any other di- vision. After one year of general education, the prospective primary teacher starts the observation of teaching at the training school. In her third year, she becomes more closely affiliated with the profession by participation. The senior student uses her acquired fund of knowledge in practice teaching. This year the seniors were scheduled for thirteen more practice hours than in previous years so that they will be better qualified to teach in any of the primary grades. On the first Monday of each month, Primary Council meets; business is discussed, and problems of practice teaching are solved by Miss Colman. Speakers at this year's meetings included Miss Mason, who discussed children's literature, Miss Tobias, who showed a movie on children's books and lectured on the development in the printing of educational material in America, and Miss Allen, who related her experiences in Hawaii, where she spent her summer vacation last year. She displayed several articles she had brought back with her. Several musical recordings made another meeting enjoyable. 54I'riniiirv Council The primaries' social activities started with their early fall informal reacquaintance party held at Iverson Park. Although no freshmen entered the group this year because of the new general course, those intending to become members next year were invited to the picnic to become acquainted with their future sister primaries. After an invigorating hike, the primaries and their guests enjoyed bowls of steaming chili. The fourth annual homecoming was a success; many alums returned to enjoy themselves at a luncheon at the Hotel Whiting. The tables were decorated patriotically in red, white, and blue; huge paper soldiers, sailors, and Uncle Sams stood guard. ' "V" For Victory' pins were given as appropriate favors. Miss McGuine, the chief speaker, talked to the group on "The Qualifications of a Primary Teacher". Music was furnished by the string quartette and by Charlotte Reichel, the capable president, who favored them with songs. The officers who assisted Miss Colman in leading the organization this year were: President ............... Charlotte Reichel Vice-president............. Lucille Weiher Secretary ...................

These students, about one hundred in number, are the Rural Lifers. Silence reigns as the president. Clarence Tohm, calls the meeting to order. In the absence of Clarence, Helen Firkus, the vice-president, presides. The minutes of the last meeting are read by the efficient secretary. Dorothy Hanish. 56Rural Life The financial statement is presented by the treasurer. Reuben Schultz. The new Student Council representative, Anthony Schwartz, enlightens them on the student views of the college. With the business thoroughly discussed the group enjoys its favorite songs in community singing. The pianist is either Jeanette Rich or Everett Gardner, filling the room with glad sounds. The many programs are both educational and entertaining. lust to give you an idea of the fine activities which are carried on bimonthly, we shall endeavor to tell you about a few of them. L. D. Culver, County Superintendent of Schools, at one meeting gave an interesting talk on the training for teaching and what the community expects of its teachers. Another time a clever presentation of the "Psychology of Teaching" was given by Mr. Mott. Eunice Milbauer, a freshman with a beautiful soprano voice, favored the group with vocal solos. One meeting was made interesting and entertaining by Miss Allen's Ha-wiian experiences. Soothing. South-Pacific songs formed a background for a hula dancer. The setting was made more realistic by the Hawaiian costumes displayed by the participants. The group during one Monday meeting had a Truth and Consequence program. Old Professor Quiz, Helen Firkus, was master of ceremonies and fired many questions at them, and the members responded with enthusiastic answers. A group of 4 H members gave extremely valuable information concerning the work and significance of their organization. The members of Rural Life always sing "God Bless America" together. After these traditional strains the meeting is adjourned. Not only are the members eager for intellectual knowledge, but they are socially minded as well. Their parties are worth praise. Their first seasonal party was held in the college gym. Hallowe'en spirit prevailed as they danced. The cry "Come-and-get-it” was heard and they responded. Christmas brought another party. Drawing names, games, presents exchanged, gifts, dancing and refreshments all contributed to a good time for everyone. At Eastertime the college gym was the scene of a costume dancing party. All enjoyed themselves to the utmost. This group under the able leadership of Mr. Neale can be proud of its successful year. TOP ROW: D. Wirkus, M. Nockerts, M. Adam . A. Mclntee. T. Furmanek. T.

Here we have Glee Clubs for those who want to sing—men's as well as women's glee clubs. Both organizations make frequent appearances at the college during the year and pay many visits to nearby Wisconsin towns and cities. The Men's Glee Club this year had the honor of going to two "State Sings". Green Bay and Chicago. But musical activity is far from limited to the vocal chords, for there are the band and orchestra, too. The nicest thing about all of the musical organizations, outside of their ability to entertain, is the cooperation evidenced between them. This is certainly shown by the annual Christmas Concert. The music department by sponsoring tours to many high schools, by clinics and festivals here at school, and by the fine broadcasts from the college studios, does much to advertise C.S.T.C. in the best possible manner. 60Orchestra PETER J. MICHELSEN, Director of Music Under the direction of Peter J. Michelsen the orchestra opened its 1941-42 season with a personnel of twenty-seven members—many of them new to orchestra work. Among the new members was Gilbert Faust, a member of the faculty, who has done fine work at the keyboard. We also have a brother-sister duo—Gus and Katie Bentz, specializing in violin and cello respectively. Speaking of family affairs there's Ruth, our able tympanist, and daughter of the director. The orchestra's first public appearance was at the annual Christmas concert. Not only did it present a few concert numbers, but it also served as an accompaniment for the glee clubs in various selections, most effective of which was the Hallelujah Chorus. The second appearance was at the Easter Concert, the first one of its kind at the college. Here, also, it served as a background for a women's chorus of ninety voices. Then, of course, we have the Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises where the presence of the orchestra is indispensable. Congratulations. Mr. Michelsen, for a fine season of orchestra work.

The season continued with basket-ball and foot-ball games—Mr. Michelsen, with the assistance of the band, succeeded in bringing to the college the Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra from Milwaukee. With the opening of the second semester, the Annual Band Clinic was held for the benefit of band directors of this district—long hours, but also a wonderful banquet at the Belmont Cafe. March — the annual trip season rolled around — Shawano, Pulaski, Seymour, Green Lake, Adams-Friendship, Loyal. Nekoosa, and Eau Claire. Special attractions—Steve Speidel, cornet, soloist, whose favorite selection is Clark's Carnival of Venice, which he plays very well—Dorothy Raddant and her marimba —Charlotte Reichel, guest contralto soloist. Then, the Eleventh Annual Spring Concert on April 7—the spring festival on April 18— crowds of high school musicians—grim judges — concession stands — candy wrappers — hot dogs. And, then, another memorable day — March 5 — an American flag was presented to the college by the band. Mr. Michelsen should be applauded for a season of fine concerts and excellent management.

However, the glee club's able director, Mr. Knutzen, was determined to have another organization equal to those of former years. Having lost its former accompanist, Muriel Waid, Miss Ula Mae Knutson, a Central State alumna, was asked to take over the job she had once held. The Glee Club's first appearance was at the Christmas Concert, given by the musical organizations of the college. Here they appeared as an organization and also in combination with the Women’s Glee Club. Then came the usual trips—Manitowoc, Two Rivers, Valders, Weyauwega, and later Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, Wausau, Mosi-nee, Iola, Marion, Tigerton, and Palmyra. The new concert arrangement between colleges was carried out when the Oshkosh State a ca-pella chorus and the Men's Glee Club from Central State exchanged concerts. These various trips featured the solo voices of Duane Phaneuf, Merle Jenks, Russell Frederick, and others. Then, of course, we have the Annual Spring Concert, presented two nights, in which Mr. Knutzen showed the student body the work he had done with his group this year. The Wisconsin Association of Male Choruses' State Sing was held at Green Bay, May 3, and the Midwest Sing was held at Chicago on May 23. The glee club attended both of these Sings. With the Baccalaureate Service the glee club ended a commendable season and much praise should be given them for representing our college in such fine style.

There was the usual work of placing voices and discovering new soloists before the real work could be started. The first appearance—the annual Christmas concert and the favorite song, Voice of Freedom—the solo voices of Charlotte Reichel, contralto, Gertrude Rondeau, soprano, and Eunice Milbauer, another soprano and a new member were featured. With the second semester came the trips— Port Edwards, Wausau, and Endeavor — bus rides with impromptu singing — formals — Dorothy Raddant featured as marimba soloist —a string quartette composed of Gladys Ber-rend, Jacqueline Stauber, Jean Meydam, and Katherine Bentz. Then came the final appearance—the Commencement Exercises at which Mr. Michel-sen and the Glee Club gave their tribute to the graduating class of Central State.

Buchhols "ENCOURAGEMENT OF LAY LEADERSHIP" Gamma Delta is the International Association of Lutheran college and university students. It is sponsored by the Student Welfare Committee of the Missouri Synod and is governed of, for. and by the Lutheran students of the Synodical Conference. The name Gamma Delta embodies the aims and purposes of the organization. Gamma signifies "gnosis" and means Christian knowledge. Delta signifies "diakonia" and means Christian service and fellowship. Gamma Delta serves as an aid to soul conservation and to the training of the Lutheran college youth for lay-leadership in the Church. The objects of Gamma Delta, as set forth in the Constitution, are: 1. To foster thorough study of the Bible. 2. To disseminate the Scriptural philosophy of life. 3. To train Lutheran students for intelligent leadership in their church. 4. To encourage and maintain Lutheran fellowship. 5. To maintain and increase Lutheran consciousness on the campus. 6. To establish fraternal relations with Lutheran students of other colleges and universities. This is the Beta chapter of the National Organization. Business and educational meetings were held alternately every two weeks. The members conducted discussions pertinent to present day problems. Social fellowship and recreation were not lacking. Once a month the meeting was dedicated to a holiday and parties were given. They had Halloween, Washington's birthday, St. Patrick's Day and Valentine celebrations. A Homecoming breakfast was served for the members in October. A Spring picnic was held in May. The latter two were the big events of the year. This year the old members of Gamma Delta decided to institute a two-weeks pledge period followed by a formal initiation of new members. The officers who guided the organization at C.S.T.C. were: Pres. Linda Born; V. Pres. Charlotte Rei-chel; Sec'y. Cynthia Krohn; Treas. Doris Be-longia; Press Rep. Emert Lange.

Creative thinking is stimulated and students are enabled to have closer contact with their church. Bible studies were conducted and educational programs were carried out. There were two social events of major import this year. They were the Freshmen "get acquainted” party and the Christmas party. Last fall Bob Torkelson attended a meeting of the Land O'Lakes district at Ames. Iowa. On March 20, he was a delegate to the Regional Workers Conference of the Iov a district at Waverly. Iowa. L.S.A. presented a radio program in March. Clarence Solberg explained the aims and purpose of the organization to the radio audience. Rev. Romstad spoke on the subject, CHRISTIAN LIFE IN EDUCATION. Gilbert Halverson led Devotionals. New officers were elected earlier than is usually the custom, in order that they might attend the "Workers Conference" on April 25, at Mankato, Minn. Plans for next year were discussed at that regional conference. L.S.A. is under the spiritual leadership of Rev. Romstad. Mr. Faust and Mr. Knutzen serve as faculty advisers. This year's officers were as follows: Pres., Clarence Solberg; V. Pres., Gilbert Halverson; Sec'y., Jane Weinmann; Treas., Ada Knutson; Press Rep., Melba Waag. 67Newman Club GROUP I TOP ROW: Somanko.

HARMONY. AND FELLOWSHIP" Loyola Club was organized on our campus in 1916. The idea emanated from a State Teachers college at Kearny, Neb. In 1939, after national affiliations were made, the name was changed to Newman Club, and it is today one of the most active religious bodies, under the able guidance of Father Geimer. This is what Newman Club does for its members: 1. It supplements the work of secular instruction with spiritual and religious activities. 2. It gives Catholic students an opportunity to come together and to become acquainted with one another. 3. It provides as far as possible for stu- dents away from home a supplement for the safeguards afforded by parents. 4. It fosters a spirit of peace, harmony, and fellowship on the campus. Newman Club holds business and social meetings alternately twice a month. This year, too, students joined at St. Stephen's for Communion, which was followed by a breakfast served in the basement of the school. The officers of Newman Club for this year were: President, Patricia Maguire; Vice President, Catherine Dineen; Second Vice President, Robert Schrank; Secretary, Loretta Gonering; Treasurer. Elaine Teske; Press Rep. Marcelle Martini. Miss Roach is faculty adviser. 68Y. W. C. A "Full and Creative Life" The creed of the Young Women's Christian Association is: "We unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task we seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him.” This international organization, for the establishment of Christian fellowship, has set up high standards. The C.S.T.C. students have done their part in the maintenance of those standards. The "Y" girls are the first to greet the Freshmen girls by giving a tea in their honor. Each "Y" girl becomes a friendly "Big Sister," and plays her role so well that all the new girl's thoughts of "going home" are banished. After attendance at a few meetings the new girls are ushered into the organization at a most impressive candle light service. Throughout the school year Y.W.C.A. is active. It is traditional that the "Y" girls decorate the Dorm at Homecoming time. They are known for the efficient charity work they do at Christmas time. This year they have formed four Hobby clubs. Mrs. A. E. Harris is adviser for the Y and Miss Syble Mason is an honorary member. Patronesses are Mrs. W. C. Hansen. Mrs. O. W. Neale, Mrs. O. F. Nixon, Mrs. E. T. Smith and Miss Helen Meston. Their officers were: President, Wilma Anderson: Vice President, Charlotte Reichel; Secretary, Thelma Parrott; Treasurer, Mae Hoffman. 69College Y TOP ROW: Shtrmac Sword. Dr. Lynots BOTTOM ROW: Both Johnson. Hannah Kaulman "TO BUILD A PHILOSOPHY" The college youth movement, known simply as College Y, is something new. Let us tell you about it. Dr. and Mrs. Lyness entertained twenty-four students at their home one evening last fall with the purpose of talking over with them the possibilities of forming a non-sectarian discussion group which would have for its fundamental aim that of stimulating religious life on the campus. The students were in accord that such an organization would indeed be very valuable. They then selected twelve students, representing every faith on the campus, who were to meet as soon as possible and lay the ground work for College Y. The body of twelve met in November, and discussed the various problems that confront an organization in-the-making. From the group two committees were appointed to make plans for the "organization meeting." Friday, December 12. Dr. Lyness explained to more than one hundred students that College Y would be an informal discussion group; that it would not have a membership roll, nor would there be any dues; and that anyone could become active in College Y merely through participation at meetings. At the first official meeting, held on January 16. it was deemed necessary to elect three officers, who would preside for the duration of the school year. They were: Co-Presidents. Sherman Sword and Beth Johnson; Secretary. Hannah Kaufman. In February Dr. Lyness took five students to the University Campus at Madison, where they attended the Annual Inter-College Religious Conference. They heard such timely addresses as. THE PLACE OF THE RELIGIOUS STUDENT IN THE PRESENT EMERGENCY. INTER-FAITH WORK ON THE CAMPUS. THE WORLD WE WANT TO LIVE IN. delivered by such outstanding speakers as: Prof. Agard of the University. Dr. Lamars of Marquette, Rev. Schloreb of Chicago, and Rabbi Sacchar of Champaign, 111. A program steering committee was appointed in March. Meetings were held twice a month on Friday evenings. Dr. and Mrs. Lyness will always remain invaluable to College Y. Mr. Harris, who joined the circle in March, deserves mention here as a fine discussion leader. It is the hope of all those who are interested in the longevity of College Y. that it continue throughout the years to carry out a program which sponsors tolerance through understanding, seeks to broaden perspective, and in the words of President Hansen, "helps the student to build a philosophy for himself." 7071 i m The Iris TOP ROW: Edwards, Raimuinn, Sanborn. Kulidas, Craig. Skatmd ROW TWO: Torkolson. Potor . Stauber. Wondori, Joyco FRONT ROW: Thoison. Procourl, Tibboitt, Floischmann Perhaps more than ever this year, students of C.S.T.C. feel the need for a memo of school activities. With so many empty places in the student ranks, with so many changes in life and thought, the associations which they have made at this institution have become doubly dear to those who are leaving it, and to those who hopefully look forward to renewed friendship and contacts. The ''Iris'' sincerely trusts that it has fulfilled this need. The annual this year was divided into three sections, the college, college activities, and the traditions of Central State. The staff has endeavored to give brief but accurate glimpses of the highlights of the season. An attempt was made to stress writings equally as much as photos, since school "doin's" can be told as well in words as through the medium of pictures. Due credit must be given to Miss Bertha Glennon, the new editorial adviser of the ''Iris''. Specially trained in student publications through her academic background and her experience in P.J. Jacobs High School, Miss Glennon made a welcome addition to the staff. Her skill and guidance were appreciated. As always, T.A. Rogers completed a successful year as general technical and financial adviser for the "Iris". Thanks, Mr. Rogers! The "Iris" resumed the custom of printing individual pictures of the Junior class members this year. Some time ago, this was carried out and met with popular approval. The staff hopes that the students will again express their satisfaction with the policy. Formal pictures are alternated with informal poses and places for variety. Organizations, administration, sports, personalities, campus events—all have found places in this ''Iris''. Pointers will find themselves and their friends in pictures and in articles. The year held much in the way of difficulties for the staff to overcome, but by dint of hard work and earnest cooperation, they pulled through. With proper humility, but with no apologies, the staff presents this annual of, by. and for the students of Central State. One last word to the Seniors and to other friends who are leaving us: Our best wishes go with you. May you return often to this, our school, and may you find in years to come real pleasure in leafing through the pages of the "Iris" for 1942. 72Iris Staff IRIS STAFF- -1941-1942 Traditions Editor Isla Wood Business Manager Photography Business Staii . . .

Brooks, Poqqtmillti FRONT ROW: Edwards. Bos. Rasmusssn. Prsy, PUs, Kulidas Editor Sherman Sword and his extremely efficient staff of reporters are to be congratulated for a consistently fine school paper for the 1941-1942 session. There just wasn't a thing in the line of school news and gossip, and special features that wasn't covered by this hard-working and active crew. Sherm's editorials were especially good, covering a range of subjects from a drive for defense bonds and stamps to pungent comments on life in general and student life in particular. They were eagerly watched for and talked about by students and faculty. Hannah Kaufman did an excellent job of reporting campus activities in her column "The Talk of the Campus". Her notes and comments on dramatic presentations of the college and on assemblies in "On Stage" were equally well received. The column "Gym Antics" covered doings of the W.A.A. and girls' intramural sports completely and interestingly. James Kulidas and Jack Rassmussen collaborated on "From the Locker Room", keeping the students abreast of the activities of the athletic department, and acting as enthusiasm-raisers for the support of various intramural matches. "Faculty Facts", by Johnnie Edwards, was a new idea, and a good one, of introducing the faculty to the student body in an informal way, giving their backgrounds, duties, hobbies, and favorite maxims. Certainly, no one will forget "Dope from Pils". Gladys Pils handled the very touchy job of college gossip well, somehow managing to avoid making any more enemies than absolutely necessary. Special features by Glendy Chapin, Wallace Bartosz, and Marcelle Martini appearing from time to time, added bits of information and sideline commentaries. Other reporters were to be seen at odd intervals, jotting down notes and making interviews. Write-ups and organization notices were attended to efficiently and promptly. Business Manager Janet Poggemiller completed a successful struggle with the Pointer finances, receiving special comment by Roy Matson in his column "This World of Ours", in the Madison State Journal. Her assistants, Don Becker and Bob Handyside, got a thorough work-out, and should be in good condition to carry on the job in the future. Mr. Rightsell and Miss Glennon, advisers for the Pointer, can be proud of the excellent cooperation and ingenuity which this year's staff showed. 74Point cr Staff Editor-in-chief ...............

Burroughs. Precourt. Firkus The Pi Kappa Delta topic, "Resolved, that the democracies should establish and maintain a federation based on the Churchill-Roosevelt principles", was a particularly fitting one for the 1941-1942 debate season. Open meetings were held at which various angles of the question and of debate technique were discussed by Mr. Burroughs, Mr. Morrison, Mr. Harris, Dr. Reppen. Dr. Tolo, and Mr. Steiner. Many new students were interested, but few veteran debaters were enrolled. In January, local matches were held, from which teams comprised of Charles Wildermuth and Don Walker. Grant Thayer and Floyd Nixon, Joyce Larson and Neva Burroughs, and Janet Poggemiller and Iris Precourt emerged as the school squad. At Eau Claire, January 24. the squad won six out of sixteen debates. The week of February 5, Thayer, Nixon, Poggemiller. and Precourt made the long trip to Moorehead. Minn, to attend the tournament at Concordia College. Each team won two and lost four debates. On February 20 and 21, the annual Wisconsin Valley meet was held at Point. Teams from Eau Claire. River Falls, Oshkosh, La Crosse. Cornell, St. John, and Omaha entered. Helen Firkus and Rachel Eide alternated as substitutes for Poggemiller. who was unable to complete the season due to illness. The Point squad won eight out of twenty-four debates. River Falls won the oratorical contest. At a banquet held at Nelson Hall for the debaters and guests, trophies were given to the top teams. Omaha and Oshkosh. At the Mid-Western meet. March 6 and 7. at St. Catherine's in St. Paul, Larson and Burroughs won two and lost six debates; Eide and Precourt won four and lost four. The season ended with a match at Madison. March 27 and 28. Twenty-five schools, including some Big Ten contestants, were present. The two men's teams each won two and lost one; Eide and Precourt won one and lost one. Nixon. Walker, and Precourt also entered the discussion contest on Pan-Americanism. Adding up the scores of the year, we find that Point debaters entered five major tournaments, and won thirty out of seventy-seven debates. The squad and Mr. Burroughs are in line for compliments. As well as winning debates, the squad gained useful information and experience, and contacted people from many different parts of the United States. 77College Theater TOP ROW:—Mr. Burrouqh . Ackerman, Mittelsteadt. Miller. Mr. lenklnm FRONT ROW:—Precourt. Wood. Boe, Nelson. Kaufman. Neuman College Theater enjoyed its sixth year of successful stage productions in 1942. It is primarily a working organization, in which the greatest honor a member receives is to be told to do some more work. Recognition is given for backstage work equally as much as for acting. Tradition calls for the production of "Workshop One-Acts" which give experience in directing and staging as well as in acting. During the first semester, three such plays were presented. "The Bride Wore Red Pyjamas" proved to be a light comedy and was directed by Iris Precourt. Frank Friday was outstanding as the reporter who got the girl. Phyllis Eckels. D.J. Raddant played the part of a fluttery social-climber to perfection. Gilbert Halverson as Lord Percy, and Ronald Craig, as the helpful butler, completed the cast. Hannah Kaufman and Bob Handeyside codirected "Goodnight Please", a comedy in which a tired business-man decides to go to bed and stay there. Russell Frederick as the sleep-striker and Karl Mittelstadt as his valet did fine pieces of interpretation. Other members of the cast were Marion Alberg, Isla Wood, Virginia Lee, Grant Thayer, and Merle Jenks. The melodrama "Curse You, Jack Dalton", directed by Jack Ackerman, was an outstanding hit. Hero Gordon Halverson successfully defended the honor of Verna Meverden against the foul plots of Howard Stimm and Lillian La Marche. Helen Firkus, Marjorie Nelson, and Don Kordus also did commendable work. The second semester saw the production of Sutton Vane's "Outward Bound”, directed by Mr. Burroughs, with technical assistance from Mr. Jenkins. This play is unusually moving, carrying a theme of life after death through tense moments and vivid characterization. Frank Friday. Charles Wildermuth, Isla Wood, Hannah Kaufman, Bob Handyside, Iris Precourt, Don Walker, lack Ackerman, and Duane Phaneuf gave thoughtful and effective interpretations. The staging and lighting were equally well-done. It was a tremendous undertaking, and C.S.T.C. can point with pride to the final results. College Theater also assisted the Junior High with the production of six one-acts during the second semester. 78Radio TOP ROW: Mlu Hanson, Hanish. Eckols.

Crowns, Walsh On a tour of the studios, one might have seen Francis Walsh or Bob Rifleman busy at the controls, with head-phones adjusted, and a watchful eye kept on the time clock. Lennert Abrahamson also did technical work, including sound effects. Marcelle Martini did odd bits of script writing, and Gunvor Nelson was responsible for program arrangements. WLBL was especially courteous in arranging schedules for the college broadcasts. On Mondays at 3:45, Mr. Burroughs read from his own poetry on the program "Come Read to Me". Musical backgrounds added an effective touch to this enjoyable broadcast. At 3:30 on Tuesdays. Alpha Kappa Rho sponsored a Music Appreciation Hour, with classical recordings. Grant Thayer and Don Walker were the narrators. Wallace Bartosz presented the "One O'Clock Musicale" on Wednesdays at 1:00. Recordings of fine music were supplemented by comments on composers and compositions. Several times the programs were varied with dramatic presentations. Russell Frederick's rendition of "The Other Wise Man" during the Christmas season, was unforgettable. The comedy, "The Pussycat and the Expert Plumber Who Was a Man", starring such old radio artists as Iris Precourt, Isla Wood, Don Walker. Byron Crowns, and Russell Frederick, was almost professional in its execution. The College Band was on the air at 3:30 on Thursdays. Mr. Michelsen gave many worthwhile programs. The radio proved to be an adequate means of advertising this band of which Stevens Point is rightfully proud. The Purple and Gold Hour on Fridays at 3:30 was truly a students' hour. Grant Thayer acted as emcee, and Don Walker gave news comments. Programs representing various student organizations, the Dorm, the forensic department, the administration, student talent, and faculty contributions were given during the year. Holidays were appropriately celebrated. Several original scripts were written and presented by Byron Crowns and Joseph Frantz, featuring underclassmen in plays and skits. The voices of Ruth Stelter, Isla Wood. Eunice Milbauer, Iris Precourt, Helen Firkus, Russell Frederick, Charles Wildermuth, and the Tau Gam Trio became familiar to Point listeners. Miss Hanson also conducts a Radio Education class, in which students are given instruction in the writing of scripts, in adapting plays, voice correction, general broadcasting technique, and a study of the microphone and controls. 7980Pan-Hcll iile Connell TOP ROW: Carnahan, Mr. St in«r.

When did it start? Who are its members? The word Pan means "all", and the word Hellenic means "Greek", so the Pan-Hellenic Council is an All Greek Council. It is an organization of the social fraternities and sororities here at CSTC and is composed of two representatives from each of the four Greek social organizations. This council acts as a governing body for the organizations. Socially it sponsors the formals held after the formal initiation of pledges into the social fraternities and sororities each semester. In 1930, the late Professor E. T. Smith aided by Mr. Steiner, organized the Pan Hellenic Council. They did this in order to give these four Greek organizations recognition on the campus, which recognition they had not had up till this time. Another purpose behind the organization of this council was that of making the fraternities and sororities cooperate; the Council was to act as a sort of clearing house for them. The members are the presidents and the Pan-Hell representatives from the two sororities, Tau Gamma Beta and Omega Mu Chi, and the two fraternities, Chi Delta Rho and Phi Sigma Epsilon. Officers alternate each semester. 81Imega Mu Clii ia Semester Officers Second Semester laxqcnet Murrish .........President...................Ruth Stelter iuth Stelter ............

Miss Hazel 82Oiiiegs Organized in 1926, Omega Mu Chi is the younger of the two sororities on the campus. In the short space of these sixteen years, the sorority has become prominent in school affairs—prominent as a group and as individual members. In a social way, the sorority sponsors three annual events— a formal, a card party, and a fall tea. Besides this. Omega Mu Chi, in combination with the other three Greek social organizations, sponsors two Pan-Hellenic dances a year. The card party in April of this year was a great success—about twenty-five tables. A spring formal is always nice and this year the Omeg formal was a spring dance —last one of the year—well attended. In a scholastic way, Omega Mu Chi awards achievement by means of a sorority pin given each semester to the new member having the highest scholastic average of the group. This year three girls were honored in this manner — Vi Joyce, first semester and Edythe Of stun and Hazel Tibbetts, second semester. Both Hazel and Edythe had a three point average. Let us look at some of the members of this organization.

Founded in 1909, the sorority has continued in its prominent position on the campus. The Tau Gams are active in almost every phase of school life. In the musical department are found Charlotte Refchel and Gertrude Rondeau, alto and soprano soloists, respectively. The Tau Gam Trio was popular at the several social functions at which it sang. Many other Tau Gams were members of the glee club, the band, or the orchestra. Meeting the deadline were Pointer and Iris staff members Fay Wendorf. Marjorie Rei-tan, Marjorie Prey, and Brigetta Fleischmann. The honorary fraternities have several Tau Gams among their members. Marie Collins and Charlotte Wiese were on the Student Council. Dorothy Wirkus, Madeline LaBrot, Florence Theisen, Gertrude Rondeau, and Dorothy Davids were officers of their classes. Turning to the social side of college life we find Tau Gams everywhere. What would Thursday nights and informal dancing have been without Ginger Lundgren and Bunny Glisczinski? Twenty girls became members this year. Rushees enjoyed a “Come as You Are" and a patriotic party and a formal dinner. The pledging periods were periods of banks, pigtails, buttons, and notebooks. On the night of each Pan-Hell, new members were honored at a formal dinner at the Hotel Whiting. The Tau Gam formal, held in February, attracted a large crowd. Valentine's Day was the theme.C lii Delta Ifilio First Semester Sherman Sword Frank Koehn Merle Jenks Jack Ackerman Jack Gear Eldred Judd Floyd Nixon Officers President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Corres.-Secretary Guard Pan-Hellenic Second Semester Floyd Nixon Richard Sanborn Jack Gear Merle Jenks James Kulidas Joe Goodrich Bob Schunk TOP ROW: lorry Nouonfoldt, F.

Sponsored by the Chi Delt Fraternity, it was only one of the many successful undertakings of this group — others were their fall formal, well attended, and the informal dance in February, appreciated by all the students. Alpha Chapter of Chi Delta Rho was organized in 1930 by nine young men of CSTC. Pledges are quite forcefully reminded of these nine at rough initiation! The fraternity was organized primarily for fellowship, but it has stressed scholarship and extra-curricular participation as an important part of its functions. In 1932, the fraternity presented the school with the Chi Delta Rho honor cup. This cup is to be awarded to the student with the highest average each year. So much for the fraternity as a whole. What of its members, are they prominent in school affairs? Let's look at some of them.

No one need say much more to characterize in detail the happy-go-lucky, fun-loving fellows who make up the Kappa chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon. The local chapter of the national fraternity was organized in 1919, and it has been going strong ever since. Its members take part in almost all school activities. They have the distinction of being the only Greeks on the campus who have a "house”. lack Perry, John Edwards, Melvin Wunsch, and Gus Bentz are a few of the Phi Sig future Harry James', Jack Teagardens, Jimmy Dorseys, and Rubinoffs. Duane Phaneuf was soloist with the Men's Glee Club. In the field of athletics, the Phi Sigs had their Tom Harmons in Bill Carnahan and Mike Sharkey. The Johnny Kotz spirit was carried out by Gordie Lewison and Bill Carnahan. Bob Becker, Mike Sharkey, and Don Walker stood up for the rights of their respective classes at Monday night's Student Council meetings. In spite of their reputation for being carefree, the Phi Sigs hold their own in the scholastic realm. Ray Skatrude, Tom Wishlin-ski, and Bob Malecki are only a few of the Phi Sigs who belong to Sigma Zeta. John Edwards is the only new male member of Alpha Kappa Rho. Bob Handeyside is in Alpha Psi Omega. The Casanovas of the dance floor had among them Dan Durkee and Howard Barton. Pledging meant the inevitable advent of the horrible paddle to nine pledges.

They are ''Greeks”, too, because they belong to Alpha Kappa Rho, honorary music fraternity. Alpha Kappa Rho has as its aim the stimulation of an appreciation of music. Mr. P. J. Michelsen has been the faculty adviser of the fraternity since its founding in 1937. Only outstanding musicians who have proved their ability in the world of music are considered as possible members. Students must have a high scholastic average, two semesters of directing, and membership in at least one school musical organization in order to become members. A comprehensive exami- nation on every phase of music must be successfully written. A formal initiation and dinner ends the pledging period of four weeks. The Alpha Kappa Rho award, inaugurated last year, is presented to the senior girl showing the most outstanding qualities of leadership, scholarship, and good sportsmanship. On class day the winner receives a small trophy as a personal award. Her name is engraved on the large trophy displayed in the case at the Alpha Kappa Rho bulletin board on the first floor.

And just as inevitably has he joined himself with a group of similarly interested dramatists. The students at CSTC, being no exception to this human trait, organized in February, 1938 the Eta Delta Cast of Alpha Psi Omega. This is an international dramatic fraternity. Strictly an honorary society, it has no other purpose than the recognition of outstanding dramatic ability in the student body. It is a very exclusive organization as true dramatic ability is demanded of its members. Membership at present is nine: SENIORS: Jack Ackerman, Lillian Boe, Charles Miller, Janet Poggemiller, Clarence Solberg, James Unger. JUNIORS: Iris Precourt, Isla Wood. SOPHOMORES: Bob Handeyside, Alpha Psi Omega acts as an auxiliary to College Theater. Working together, the two aim to promote an interest in dramatics. "Alpha Psi", however, is more a social organization than is College Theater. New members are admitted to the fraternity each semester. In order to be eligible, they must have shown their ability in one or more of the various fields of play production. The pledge period is from three to four weeks and is followed by a comprehensive examination given at the formal initiation ceremony. 91Sigma Tan Delta Officers President .................................................

The local chapter was organized in 1930, with Leland Burroughs and Mildred Davis of the present college faculty among the charter members. The purpose of the organization, whose bywords are "sincerity, truth, and design", is to encourage an intelligent appreciation of literature and to foster creative writing. Sigma Tau is the sponsor of that noteworthy publication called "Flight". Each year students at CSTC contribute original pieces of work to make an excellent book of creative writing. Marcelle Martini edited "Flight" for 1942, and Gilbert Halverson was business manager. Alice Wagner, Diana Kamke, Marcelle Martini, Gilbert Halverson, and Jack Acker- man had the honor of having their works printed in "Rectangle”, national publication of Sigma Tau. New members are taken in on the basis of outstanding achievement in the field of English. In order to be considered as a possible member, a student must have a 2. average in English and must be working toward a major or a minor in that field.

Mr. Faust "The travels of young students through the devious ways of the various sciences are not unlike those of a party of mountain climbers... Each struggling independently can make progress; through mutual assistance the progress can be greatly enhanced." Sigma Zeta attempts this "mutual assistance". "The purpose of this society is two-fold: (1) to encourage and foster the attainment of knowledge of the sciences, and (2) to recognize the attainment of high scholarship among those fitted for membership in this society." With these two aims in mind, members are chosen who have a favorable academic average and who are majoring in any of the fields of science or mathematics. Two of our members are grand officers in the national fraternity. Mr. Faust is Grand Editor and Mr. Rogers is Grand Recorder-Treasurer.

Charles Miller, Joseph Goodrich "To gain a better understanding of world events and their interrelation upon human society" is the purpose of the Social Science Club as it is stated in the preamble to its constitution. This discussion group was formed in 1937 under the direction of Dr. Reppen, who has continued at his post as faculty adviser since that time. The charter members were Elroy Florence, Bernard Johnson. Donald Kordus, Daniel Laszewski, Edwin Lietz, and Earle Siebert. In order to become a member of the organization, a student must have a scholastic average of least 2.1 in the field of social science, in which he must be a major or a minor. Meetings, held twice a month, are opened with a report on some definite question. The speaker is open to questions at any time. A general round-table discussion follows the report. The fact that talks may become too lengthy made it necessary for the organization to pass a law limiting discussions to 9:30 P.M. The law makes it possible for members to leave the school building before the lights are turned out. Late in February, the club became a member of the International Relations Club, which is sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment Foundation for International Peace. This affiliation makes available to members a great wealth of timely reading material. The group receives various books twice a year, the reports of the Public Affairs Committee, the Fortnightly Summary, and the Foreign Policy Reports. Officers this year were: President .................. Charles Miller Vice-President..............Sherman Sword Secretary-Treasurer.......Tony Schwartz Faculty Adviser ............... Dr. Reppen Members: Jack Gear, Joe Goodrich, Donald Kordus, Adrian LaBrot, Charles Miller, Floyd Nixon, Lloyd Roe, Anthony Schwartz, Sherman Sword and Mr. Steiner, honorary member. 94Bloc Club TOP ROW: Zi«hlk«. Smith. Durk BOTTOM ROW: Ack nnan. Mf. bwtMB. Ung«r "The oldest unusual organization on the campus" is known as the Bloc Club. Unusual? Yes! It has no constitution, no dues, no officers, no affiliation with any group, local or national. What is its past, present, and future? The Bloc Club was organized in 1933 by a group of students interested in mutual discussion—discussion of any and all topics, literature, world events, inventions, art, whatsoever happens to be of interest to the group. This year the subjects for discussion centered on the war and "its implications for men of college age". Also discussed were such topics as education, status of vocations, political changes. The guest speakers were Professor Harris of CSTC and Professor Neumann of Oshkosh State Teachers College. Mr. Harris discussed the college grading system, and Mr. Neumann talked on modem German education. It is interesting to note how the trend of the discussions is influenced by the times. When World War I broke out, the talk inevitably led to the possible involvement of the United States. With the following depression years, unearthing, discussing, and finding possible solutions for the depressing problems of the era was the interest of the group. Lately, changes in administration in the college and, now, the war have proved topics for talk. This absolutely informal group has as its adviser Mr. Knutzen who says that he is one of them, that he has no more voice in the club than has any other member. That not making him informal enough, members of the Bloc, accepting his invitation, have frequently sojourned for "discussion weekends" to his cabin in the North Woods. Meetings are held every three weeks. There is no regular meeting place. Meetings are held in some member's home or room. This year the club has met at Iverson, at a farm in Shawano County, in the north woods, and mainly at Mr. Knutzen's place. So much for the present. As for the future of the Bloc Club, there is little doubt but what it will continue as long as there are people who want to talk and as long as there are any topics for these people to discuss. The present members are Jack Ackerman, Dan Durkee, Russ Frederick, Roger Olson, "lake" Steckel, Jim Smith, Jim Unger, and Jack Ziehlke. 95Ilomo Economics Club Have you ever gone through the East halls? You have! You've smelled cooking just as good as Mom's, haven't you? You see, we have a Home Economics course here at CSTC. And when you sniff longingly in the direction of the Home "Ec" kitchens, you will realize it is a mighty good course! Back in 1913, the Home "Ec'ers" decided to "club” together for two reasons: (1) to promote sociability among themselves, and (2) to study the different phases of Home Economics work at meetings. Membership then was slightly larger due to the fact that the course was then only a two-year one. What constitutes a year's activities in this club? This year, we started out with a picnic at Iverson which was "general-chairmaned" by Kay Schaefer. Had a lot of fun at this opener of a year's activities. Our Christmas party is a tradition, and this year besides having fun ourselves, we provided fun for others. We brought children's games which Miss LaVigne gave to the needy youngsters around and about. Then In February, a faculty dinner was given for the benefit of the club. The climax of the year was the arrival of the "long-awaited and hard-earned” refrigerator for Sims' cottage. As for the meetings themselves — this year's programs centered around "the representative nationalities of the Hawaiian Islands, portraying their food customs and habits." A year ago, Miss Allen went to summer school in Hawaii and this year she took the Home Economics Club members on a tour through the islands telling them about the islands themselves and the people on the Islands. 96Friendly "21” TOP HOW: Fox. Schroodor. Schwartz. Mott. Xaqol. BOTTOM ROW: Miss Roach. Kslloqq, Hanish. Gauor. Schnoldor, Pilz. . No one but an experienced teacher may become a member of the "Friendly 21". The one prerequisite for joining this organization is that a prospective member have at least one year of experience in the field of teaching. During the first semester of the school year 1939-40, twenty-one teachers came to CSTC to complete their degree requirements. In order to encourage two-year graduates to return to school to finish work on their degrees, these twenty-one students formed the "Friendly 21". Anthony Schwartz and Dorothy Mott, in school this year, were among the charter members. The aim of the club is to help those students who have been out of school for a time to fit more easily into the student body. Meetings, held every three weeks, combine business and pleasure. After the business is settled, a social is enjoyed. Discussions on teaching and its problems are held often. No dues are required of the members.

The Pointers finished third in the conference by chalking up two games in the win column and two in the lost bracket. When diplomas were handed out last June only three men finished their collegiate careers and Coach Kotal had visions of a championship team for the following fall. The Purple and Gold gridders had emerged victorious five times while losing only two, tieing one and losing only three men from this squad. The followers of C.S.T.C. were looking forward to a great season. Came September and it was found that only twelve men returned, and out of these only nine were lettermen. The others were drafted or enlisted in the armed forces. Only twenty-seven men came out for football and Coach began preparing for the season. The team did exceptionally well considering the lack of reserve men and the loss of Louis Posluszny in the opening game due to a broken leg. TOP ROW: Coach Kola). Sanborn. G. Ncuenfoldt. Olto. J.

He resigned his position to accept an offer to become the backfield coach of the Green Bay Packers. Coach first took over the football reins for the Pointers in the fall of thirty-one. Under his guidance, the Pointers began to be feared in inter-collegiate circles. Installing the Packer mode of attack, the Purple and Gold gridders began to chalk up victory after victory. His ''33” team went through the season undefeated and his ”34'' squad tasted defeat only once and that to a powerful Illinois Wesleyan outfit. The 1935 eleven turned back all conference opponents but were disqualified for participating in pre-seasoning practice when they engaged in games with the Packers and the Chicago Bears. His next championship squad came in ”36” when his powerful machine swept through all the conference opponents. The Pointers always finished high in conference standings. The most disastrous season experienced by Kotal was during the fall of ”39” when his potentially strong aggregation chalked up two victories against five defeats. 99Football Eau Claire player does a bit of ballet dancing as Poslusz-ny rounds end for twenty yards.

He was the victim of a pile-up which resulted in a bad break to his right leg. Ted Fritsch had a field day. as he scored three touchdowns and kicked three extra points. Stimm, Parr, and Otto played fine defensive ball to star in the line.... The use of dazzling pass attack to score touchdowns when they were needed enabled the Whitewater team to tip the CSTC gridders in an exciting homecoming game. The score was 19-13. Playing before a capacity crowd of followers, the Pointers scored first, but this was quickly wiped out by a Whitewater touchdown. After halftime, Whitewater added two more touchdowns, while the Kotalmen could score but one. Koehn and Fritsch led the Pointers----A victim of bad breaks at the hands of Platteville the Purple and the Gold lost a hard fought battle to the Pioneers at Platteville.

The reason for this was: Central State reigned from the throne over the Southern Division of the Teachers Conference as supreme on the basketball court. The dome can always be seen glittering in the sunlight by the motorist who passes to and fro through the city of wonderful water. The seeing of the dome always brings to the attention of the passerby the fact that an institution of higher learning is located on the east side of this city. This year, however, it presented an added significance. It reminded them that Central State Teachers College was the possessor of a crack basketball five that compiled a record of eleven wins and three losses for the season. It brought to their attention the fact that the representatives of this college on the hardcourt came through with seven victories and one defeat in conference competition. Yes—the observing of the Silver Dome by the passerby brought to his attention that Central State is an intellectual center and is also the possessor of a championship quintet. 105106 l)i»SBasketball The followers of Central State were filled with glee, for the Pointers had won their first basketball championship since 1937. Previous to this the representatives of Central State on the hardcourt had won three successive titles. From 1937 until the present time the Kotalmen never finished below second place. They were always contenders for the title. When Coach Kotal issued the call for basketball last fall only Captain Pete Terzyn-ski, Ray Terzynski, Hank Pospychala and Ted Fritsch answered the call, as a nucleus from last year's team. La Verne Van Dyke and Bob Oik were lost via the graduation route, Jim Bagnell and Ray Warren didn't return to school, Bob Fisher transferred to the University of Wisconsin, Dennis Helixon joined the air corps, and Louis Posluszny broke his leg in the opening football game last fall. This outlook didn't discourage Coach. He took the available men and worked them in along with three freshmen, two sophomores and one senior who never had had any college competition previous to this, and formulated a fast high scoring aggregation. A1 Helminski, Clarence Kloes and Wally Sturm are the freshmen. With only two weeks of practice the opening game with Scott Field was played. Coach Kotal started a lineup consisting of Pospychala and Pete Terzynski, forwards. Helminski, center and Ray Terzynski and Carnahan, guards. The Scott Field Aggregation playing its tenth VO , game of the season with its lineup studded with former college stars defeated the Central Staters 59-56 in an overtime. Ace Terzynski supplied the crowd with excitement by pouring in two baskets within four seconds of play to send the game into the overtime. After this game the Kotalmen travelled to Waukesha to hand the highly touted Carroll five a 41-40 setback. Pete and Ace Terzynski scored 35 out of 41 points. Playing before a home crowd the Pointers gave one of the worst exhibitions of basketball ever to be seen here and were drubbed by Northern Michigan Teachers 56-41. Performing at West De Pere the following Monday the C.S.T.C. boys returned to form and defeated a classy St. Norbert quintet 53-49. For the fifth game of the campaign the Pointers travelled to Northern Michigan to engage the Michigan lads in a return game. This time our boys emerged victorious 64-61. Oshkosh was drubbed in the opening conference game 50-36 and Platteville was taken into camp a week later to the tune of 52-48, and conference victory number two was chalked up. Examinations took place and the first semester was over. With the start of the second semester the squad was strengthened by the return to school of Ray Warren, rangy all-conference center, and by the eligibility of Marve Hans- 107Basketball man, a transfer student from the University of Wisconsin. Ray Warren took over the duties of first string center and the team continued its winning streak. Milwaukee State was the first foe and they were subdued 57-46. This marked the first time in three years that the Green Gulls were defeated by a C.S.T.C. Quintet. Pete Ter-zynski paced the way with 22 points. The following night the Purple and Gold cagers emerged victorious over a hard fighting determined Whitewater five 54-51 in an overtime. Pete Terzynski again paced the way by sending 22 points through the hoop. The Green Gulls of Milwaukee State invaded Point with visions of revenge but the Pointers were also victory minded. The Pointers finished on the long end of the score 41-40 to assure themselves at least a tie for the championship. Hank Poskie made good one of his two free throws after the gun had sounded to bring victory to Central State. The Green Knights of St. Norberts came to town on a Wednesday night and went back home on the short end of a 63-55 score. The Central Staters went to Oshkosh and defeated the Titans 32-22 in their annual feud played in the Oshkosh bowling alley gymnasium. The conference championship was cinched undisputed when Whitewater was whipped 58-48. "Eddie Kotal Night" was celebrated and Coach was presented with a wrist watch from the student body, and the team was given a cake by Mr. Parks. The victory string of seven successive games was snapped when Platteville defeated Central State 42-41 in the last game of the season to hand the Kotalmen their only conference setback.

Kotal will direct his Packer efforts toward backfield development with special emphasis on the offense. His work will not affect the status of Assistant Coach Richard (Red) Smith, whose energies are concentrated on line play. They both will work under the supervision of Curley Lam beau. In his five years of Packer play Eddie made 10 touchdowns. In addition to being a fast breakaway runner on rushing plays, and a shifty man in an open field, he was a good forward passer and an excellent pass receiver. His playing weight was something over 170 pounds—but never much more than that. But in courage and determination he made up for what he lacked in stature and weight, and his playing days were marked by the spectacular. Coach is well remembered by Packer fans of 15 years ago. He wound up his playing with the great team of 1929—the iron man outfit that brought Green Bay its first National league championship. That season the Packers shut out the Chicago Bears three times, and Kotal was instrumental in each of the victories —especially the 25-0 win which clinched the title in the last game of the season. Never asking any quarter from huskier bruisers. Coach played without a headguard and with a minimum of other pads. In respect to the latter he streamlined his armor as much as possible to conserve his speed. As a coach Kotal hates to lose, but he does not find fault with his boys when things go wrong. "If things don't click the way I planned, I always figure that in some way I have been to blame. Perhaps the wrong man has been given a certain assignment, or something was not made clear before the contest. I hate to lose, both for the kids and for my own sake, because I consider it a personal reflection upon my work. Besides I like to win. When I reach the point where I don't care, I'll quit coaching,” he says. IllW. A. A In 1918 some of the athletic minded women of our school formed an organization which was known as the Girls' Athletic Association. The motto was and still is "Sport for all and all for Sports". Some years later the W.A.A. was organized and absorbed the first organization. As the years passed new ideas were introduced into the organization. New sports such as hockey and badminton replaced speed ball and mass basketball. Play day was the main event of the school year. This year, 1942, the W.A.A. started the year with a new adviser, new officers, a newly remodeled gym and a large group of new members. This organization is affiliated with the American Federation of College Women. The A.F.C.W. holds an annual convention at some college in the United States. This year's convention was held in the east and the distance made it impossible for local delegates to be sent. The aims of the present W.A.A. are: to create greater interest in promoting athletics among the girls of the school; to enable each girl to use her influence in promoting good sportsmanship and fair play. The organization is open to all college women but certain requirements must be adhered to before membership will be granted. A certain scholastic standing must be maintained and active participation in two major sports are two of the requirements. All college women are welcome to take part in the intramural sports, whether they are members of W.A.A. or not. Recreational activities both strenuous and quiet are provided. The recreation room is open to all the women of the college too. One project carried out by the organization was the purchasing of new drapes which added color and a more homey atmosphere to the room. Several new games, although part of the class equipment, are now available to visitors of the "rec" room. The new adviser, Miss Greiling, brought with her many new ideas for social and sports activities. The officers. "Mike" Blissett, president; Madeline La Brot, Vice-president; Ethel Ann Lawrence, secretary; and Mary Louise Butter, treasurer, met the first week of school to select Sport Heads for the year. Those chosen were; Hockey—Mary K. Geer; Volleyball —Mae Hoffman; Basketball—Betty Davis; Badminton—Alice Grube and Mary K. Geer; Tennis—Marjorie Mae Nelson; Ping Pong—Patricia Carver; Archery—"Bunny" Glisczinski; Tumbling—Katherine Kelly; Miscellaneous—Gladys Pils; Informal Dancing—Virginia Lundgren. It was the duty of the Sport Head to take complete charge of her sport. The beginning of each sport season was introduced by attractive posters on the bulletin boards. Points are 113W. A. A. given for each hour of participation in the various sports, and awards are made accordingly in the spring. To win a Junior Award the member is required to earn five hundred points; for a Senior Award, seven hundred points. Each year new stars come to the front. This year has been no exception. The football season was ushered in by four cheer leaders. Mike Blissett and Harriet Coey had led cheers in college before this year. The other two girls were new. They were Gen Smith and Jeanne Cattanach. These girls were also seen on the floor at all the basketball games as well as the various pep assemblies throughout the year. The basketball tournament ended with Mary K. Geer, Alice Grube and Gen Smith as the outstanding forwards of the season. As basketball scores are made by the forwards, equally important are the guards. This season has its share of outstanding guards too. They are: Janis Larson, Maude Pounder and Mae Hoffman. Badminton singles and doubles matches were held, with Jean Meydam as champ of the singles. Mixed matches were played in the evening once a week and some very efficient teams were the result. During the half at one of the basketball games an exhibition game was played. After the cabinet had been chosen, the organization was ready to begin the year's activities. The first problem was to obtain new members. To accomplish this a picnic was held at Iverson Park. The guests were told about W.A.A. and invited to the first meeting at which time they were to take the pledge oath. The new girls were considered pledges for one week but probationary members for the first semester and were required to be active in sports. During the year, various social activities were given with such catchy themes as Ul' Abner party. Kid's party, and Boy—Girl party. Every Thursday evening informal dancing was held in the college gym, as well as often after basketball games. Along in November the W.A.A. took charge of a dance sponsored by the social committee of the college; the theme was "Club Sahara”. Because of the Christmas 114W. A. A atmosphere v hich prevailed, a party was held before the girls went home for the holidays. All was quiet then until Valentine's Day rolled around. In honor of this day various decoration, entertainment and food committees, the latter a big attraction at all W.A.A. social functions, began to plan. On this night the probationary members took the oath which made them members. Following the party the entire group of W.A.A. girls attended a basketball game. Before the game started the new members led the audience in singing the school song. In March, preparation for Play Day was started when Madge La Brot appointed her many committees. Play Day was different this year in that it was an indoor event. Volleyball was the major sport of the day with relays being run later in the morning. The theme for the day was "Swing and Play". The annual luncheon and the presenting of prizes was held at Nelson Hall. In the afternoon each school was asked to give a two minute skit depicting a song title. Following this there was informal dancing in the gym and a great variety of games in the recreation room. Before the girls left for home, refreshments were served and goodbyes were heard throughout the building. In every organization required changes must be made. The W.A.A. is no exception. In February. "Mike" Blissett could no longer be president and Madge La Brot, the vice-president, became president. Mary K. Geer was then elected vice-president. At the suggestion of the girls and by the consent of the members, Miss Ruth Nevins of the P. J. Jacobs high school faculty was asked to become an honorary member of W.A.A. She accepted our invitation, and her many suggestions have been appreciated by the girls. To close a very successful year a spring picnic was given. Baseball was the main entertainment and the girls were reminded of the picnic held nine short months ago when so many of them were but guests. As for the seniors, they had many picnics about which to reminisce. As twilight fell, the officers who were to lead the organization next year were elected and installed. TliAD I 116T I O X S 117 118Homecoming Homecoming! You never knew quite what it meant until you went through one. First, you read about it; then, everybody began to talk about it; and finally, you were in the midst of it all as you pinned a big yellow mum on your sweater, and felt the surge of school pride that this occasion always brings forth. The special pep assembly called on the Thursday preceding the great day was, as always, a rollicking success. Miss Roach, with her inimitable verve and gusto, aroused enthusiasm by telling of Homecomings in the past and certain men of the faculty, in their gorgeous gold and purple jackets, added to the fun. Teachers and student body alike threw themselves into the spirit of the day with whole-hearted interest. Yells and songs were practiced, and left us all "rarin' to go”! Even the Pointer came out in the school colors! You remember the Friday night snake dance—the loud pep band that was hastily summoned to lead the parade of yelling, running enthusiasts who dove around corners. wove through crowds of people, and dodged, or sometimes didn't dodge, trees and cars and innocent bystanders. Doc Kulidas organized the huge line of students which somehow turned into a crack-the-whip, and Len Ropella climbed up the lamp post on the Public Square to lead cheers when ''Mike” Blissett's voice gave out temporarily. You were dragged and tossed about in that line until you hung there for fear of being trampled under, and after a time, your arms and other portions of your anatomy felt like the purple in the C.S.T.C. color scheme. You yelled so loudly that you could hardly scare forth a meager croak when you got to the bonfire out in Schmeeckle Field. Remember? That bonfire was the best ever. Certainly it was the biggest within memory. Remember how the freshmen worked getting combustibles together? And how the flames soared high into the air, and the heat drove the circle far back? Then, there was more yelling, with "Mike" and the others teaching us new ones. No one mind- rtoy, I • ' Wert PitcWiri forvjo IHomecoming ed the long trek across town when the finale was so much fun. Exhausted, you were finally pushed into the Training School Gym, where a big "Welcome" sign assured those of the grads who had already arrived that you were ready and waiting for them. After a while, the cider that was provided brought back your voice, and later, you even danced a bit. Excitement acts as a wonderful restorative to minds beginning to tire of school routine, and what are a few sore muscles when the cause is so worthy? Saturday was cloudy, but fortunately the rains did not come. Remember the poor underclassmen working madly to build the floats that the upper classmen preferred to admire from a distance? Some students made themselves conspicuous by their absence, except for the occasional moans about the work they had to do—work that made it impossible for them to do more than offer a few helpful suggestions and criticisms. But, after all, it v as fun driving your fingemails( yes, using a hammer!) into the side of the truck you were lucky enough to get priority rights on. wasn't it, you Soon-to-be-Sophomores? Besides, how could anything go wrong with Mr. Evans, bravely wearing a purple and gold tie, arranging the parade with practiced showmanship? The parade was filled with clever ideas, and was greatly enjoyed by all. especially by the alumni, who turned out in fine form. They stood about in groups, gossiping, and telling of their teaching experiences; occasionally, they commented on the parade, or tossed a greeting to companions of former years. Many townspeople watched the long procession as it wound through the town. The winners, the girls of the W.A.A., illustrated the "Hay, Point, We're Pitchin' For You" with their hay rack, loaded with members in football uniforms and holding a vanquished Whitewater on the ends of their pitchforks. In second place was the large telephone, with the receiver off which was 120Homecoming the result of the Pointer staff's joint headaches. Third place went to the High School Division's brainstorm, wherein Ray Minton had his back scrubbed all the way down on the float labeled "We're all For-um". The Nelson Hall and Omega Mu Chi entries received an honorable mention. The band added its bit. too. The blond beauty stepping it off in front was Brigetta Fleischmann, and she was something to catch the cameraman's eye! The game you all remember. The bleachers were dotted with the gold mums that were fastened to almost every shoulder. Miss Allen gave us an impromptu exhibition of what the well-dressed faculty woman wears to a game. Her purple and gold beret was a fashion note worth jotting down. There was no lack of volume as everyone cheered the teams. The "Beat Whitewater" and the "C.S.T.C. Chant" have gone down in history as two of the most stirring yells this school has ever used. Beautiful playing had us all excited when Koehn made the first touchdown. Oh. the dismal picture, though, when Whitewater made a score. but that isn't important now. Koehn made a spectacular 70-yard run that day, too. There was extra-special playing by all of the boys, but honors went to Fritsch. Carnahan. Otto, and Goodrich, who didn't like the final score. It seems the other team had a player with a breakfast food name—Farina, wasn't it? Yes, he played fairly well. The score was White-water 19. C.S.T.C. 13. Well, it was a great game anyway, fellows. A new feature that showed promise of joining the list of Homecoming traditions was the open house held at Nelson Hall after the game Saturday afternoon. Mrs. Wm. Hansen welcomed the alumni and the students as they poured into the dorm in search of refreshments and reunions. Mrs. Pfiffner and the council acted as officials and very concerned hostesses. Then, suddenly, it was all over, even the shouting. Tom bits of purple and gold paper floated about the campus, and a vague, pleasant warmth about the heart was all that remained of Homecoming.2uec t Velma flacoAion Ki Uf 7ed ty'uliclt i e Uct • • JOoSenior Hall "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" was the theme of the Senior Ball, held in the Training School Gym on December 12th. The spicy odor of evergreens permeated the air, while wreaths and a real Christmas tree added to the general holiday atmosphere. At one end of the dance floor was a large fireplace which gave forth a friendly glow to warm those who became too impressed with the genuineness of the scene. Presiding over the Ball was the King of Winter, none other than the Senior Class President, Ted Fritsch, that sports hero and man-about-school. For his Queen, he chose Velma Jacobson, an attractive sophomore. His Prime Minister was Clarence Solberg, who escorted Jeannette Halverson. Their Majesties led the grand march of about fifty couples. In the receiving line were President and Mrs. Hansen. Regent and Mrs. Delzell, Dean and Mrs. Steiner. Mrs. Pfiffner, Miss Glennon, and Mr. and Mrs. Evans. The music committee, chairmanned by Dick Sanborn, and composed of Ruth Stelter, Jack Ackerman, and Charles Dodge, scored a lasting hit when they booked Wally Beau and his smooth orchestra to provide the very danceable tunes for the evening. The creators of this Winter Wonderland were directed by Rayfield Skatrude, whose crew was composed of Fay Wendorf, Bob Becker, Alan Kingston, Margaret Edwards. Joyce Larson, and Arnold Bocher. All deserve a special compliment for their painstaking and effective work. They must have labored hand-in-hand with the old weather man, because the weather, inside and outside, was perfect. When tributes are being passed around, Lillian Boe and Charles Miller cannot be forgotten, because they were responsible for keeping the lights at exactly the proper degree of dimness. Refreshments were in charge of Margaret Clark, Helen Scheinert, and Janet Tiffany. Tony Schwartz, Floyd Nixon, Bob Schrank, Len Ropella, Margaret Murrish, Alice Wagner, Aloha Walter, and Lucille Weiher took over the job of handling the ticket sales.r . At »uu CChristmas Concert It has become a tradition at Central State for the music department to present a Christmas Concert. The event is eagerly awaited by the college and townspeople alike, and visitors return year after year. This season the auditorium was lighted by rainbow colors flashing from the many Christmas trees clustered about the stage. Voices were instinctively hushed as the audience entered this atmosphere of peacefulness. Familiar hymns were played on the marimba and bells, their soft music blending with the general air of reverence. In the background of the empty stage the Virgin and her Child were pictured amid six caroling angels. As the concert began, the singers, in formal dress and bearing lighted candles, marched down the aisle to the strains of "Oh Come All Ye Faithful". It was impressive to watch the serious young faces pass by in the flickering glow of the tapers. Mr. Leland Burroughs read the words of each song before it was sung, and also read the Christmas story. Perhaps the most effective number of the Women's Glee Club was the poignant "Oh Pray For Peace". "God of All Nature", "Thou Wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace", and "Voice of Freedom" were also memorable. The orchestra played "Pique Dame", "Berceuse", and the "Prayer" from "Hansel and Gretel", and provided accompaniment for the singing several times. The Men's Glee Club sang the favorite of several seasons, "Hallelujah Amen". Other numbers were the "Catalonian Christmas Carol" and "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring". As usual, a tableau of the Nativity was presented, directed by Miss May Roach. A Cappella solos added to the beauty of the scene. The combined chorus of 150 voices sang "Silent Night" with a special echo effect. Gertrude Rondeau soloed in "Lost in the Night", and Duane Phaneuf in "Jesu Bambino". The performance closed with the magnificent "Alleluia Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah", with the audience standing in tribute. 125Junior l’roin The theme for the Junior Prom this year was. quite appropriately, a patriotic color scheme. The American flag was draped about the walls in such a way as almost to completely disguise the Training School Gym. Red, white, and blue streamers camouflaged the ceiling and the stage, and provided an effective background for the orchestra. Those Prom-goers who arrived early were given distinctive "General MacArthur" buttons to wear. There were likewise several escorts who carried the theme further by presenting their fair friends with war-saving stamps instead of the conventional corsages. Billy Hughes, with his "Band of Tomorrow", furnished the music. His restless rhythm helped to make the evening a long-remembered one. Especially well liked were the novelty numbers given by the band. Louis Posluszny, Prom King, chose as his Queen, Miss Virginia Strope, a former student at C.S.T.C. Her blond beauty was set off splendidly by a sparkling white formal. Following Posluszny and Miss Strope in the grand march were the general chairman of the Prom, Jack Gear, and his companion, Neva Jane Burroughs. Over a hundred couples, resplendent in evening dress, attended the Prom. In the receiving line were President and Mrs. Hansen. Dean and Mrs. Steiner, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A. Rogers, Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Schmeeckle. Mr. Posluszny and Miss Strope, and Mr. Gear and Miss Burroughs. Those who labored long and hard that the Prom might be a success deserve some form of commendation. Decorations were in charge of Neva Jane Burroughs, Virginia Lundgren, and Patty Markee. Catherine Dineen and her capable committee provided the refreshments for the evening. Doc Kulidas was the very busy and very efficient general adviser. Others of the Junior class cooperated to make this affair go off smoothly. The Junior Prom is always a much-anticipated occasion, and this year's Prom fulfilled the expectations of all. 127We are greatly indebted to Mr. Rogers for his advice and guidance in the production of the 1942 Iris.
