 he Recorded by: the Junior Class Central State Teachers College Stevens Point, Wis. Jane Miller, Editor-In-Chief Kathryn Kenney, Business Managertf-OSl UAOSvdt Here it is—your Iris Album! It has been the wish of the staff of the 1945 Iris to liken this yearbook to an album of your treasured music. You will open these covers frequently now because the Iris Album is something new. As the years go by, we hope that you will take this album from the shelf. Dust it off and see within it the year 1944-45 that you spent at Central State Teachers College, and recollections of the year 1943-44 when there was no Iris published. In this year you will find the school-song, the war-song, the dream-song. and the song of home. The pep-song and the dancing-song may be missing but those are the things for which we may look in the years ahead. Making your 1945 Iris has not been all fun. any more than going to college when our nation is at war is all fun. We came in an inexperienced staff willing to try to do our best. We learned many of the tricks the hard way. If we were to have pictures it meant we must have supplies. If we were to have supplies it meant we must have the approval of the O.P.A. We finally got them both. We are glad that we could give you the Iris in a year when so many things were difficult. It is no longer our worry. It is your Iris Album. Take it. and within its pages may you find happy memories of this year at C.S.T.C. 4Album Qcmteuti Panvp, anx GitoMnitance 9 ( AdwinUintUioa) Practice McJz L Perfect 31 (GlaUtU ) PlaymateA. 4-3 ( Aciiaitiei.) 5ai4,at World War II We, the teachers and future teachers of America, pledge ourselves to the principles for which these former students of CSTC have given their lives. Eugene Brill Willard Roth Lyle Brunner Richard Roberts George Cashin Alvin Sell Rolland Cossette Leonard Scheel Kent Cutnaw James Scribner Ed Durand Gordon Steinfest Joe Goodrich Rene Stimart William Lowecke Howard Stimm Leonard Matkey Duncan Seffern Ignatius Mish Douglas Strope Duane Phaneuf Tom Winkler 6 Donald Powers edLcGtio+t This year marks the first time in almost three decades that Oscar W. Neale has not been a member of our faculty. His smiling face and his cheery greeting. "How are you. Professor?" are missed by everyone. When Mr. Neale announced his retirement at CSTC's golden anniversary banquet in June. 1944, the faculty, the assembled alumni, and the entire student body felt that they had received a personal loss. Mr. Neale had become so thoroughly a part of CSTC that it was difficult to imagine college life without him. In September, returning students felt strange without his welcoming handshake. Mr. Neale's natural friendliness and willing helpfulness have endeared him to everyone. His spontaneous enthusiasm, his wide experience, and his great knowledge have made him a fine teacher, while his ready sympathy and unswerving loyalty have made him the perfect friend. CSTC wishes Mr. Neale all good fortune in whatever future tasks he undertakes. In the twenty-nine years he has been with us he has unceasingly given us of himself. In dedicating the 1944-45 IRIS to him we are trying to say: "Thank you. and may God bless you." 79 PneAldesit Whether met in the hall or visited in his office, President William C. Hansen always has a smile and a personal greeting for everyone. Since 1940, when he first took office, he has worked untiringly for the advancement of the college and for the progress of education as a whole. A graduate of Central State Teachers College in 1911, President Hansen is familiar with every phase of college life, and is acutely aware of any wave of feeling among CSTC's students. His impartial and carefully considered decisions have won for him the whole-hearted respect of both students and faculty. Except when President Hansen is in conference, the door of his office stands open—a symbol of the free and friendly relationship which exists between him and the rest of the college. Central State Teachers College is fortunate in having Wilson S. Delzell as its regent. He has proven his deep interest in the progress of the school by the time he has willingly given to its numerous activities and the constant cooperation he has shown. The assistance which Mr. Delzell has given the college is deeply appreciated by the faculty and the student body. His experiences as a former teacher and supervising principal give him an added understanding of the educational program. Regent Delzell was recently reappointed to the Board of Normal School Regents for a term expiring in 1950.Qua 2 eand Dean Pfiifner's office is one of the most popular spots in CSTC. The girls of Central State have found that Mrs. Elizabeth Pfiffner, Dean of Women, is the person to whom they naturally turn when they need help or advice — or when they just feel like ''talking". One of the things which most endears Mrs. Pfiffner to the students is the personal contacts which she maintains with them. She has a genuine interest in all of them, an interest which is reflected in her friendly manner. In supervising matters which pertain to student life. Dean Pfiffner makes every effort to maintain high standards for the students of CSTC. Herbert R. Steiner, head of the history department at CSTC, is also Dean of Men. He has been teaching at Central State since 1918, and his popularity with both the students and faculty has continued to grow with each succeeding year. Perhaps one reason for his unfailing ability to see the student's viewpoint here is the fact that he. like Dean Pfiffner, attended CSTC himself. Anyone who is fortunate enough to be enrolled in one of Mr. Steiner's history classes has before him a very enjoyable experience. Dean Steiner's droll humor and witty presentation of the "human-angle" make his lectures doubly interesting. As dean, teacher, and friend he is unsurpassed. 11BESSIE MAY ALLEN............Home Economics Graduate, Iowa State Teachers College; B.S., M.A., Columbia University. At Stevens Point since 1913.

Office Secretary In order to maintain a high standard of health. CSTC features a regular student health service under the direction of Nurse Mary Neuberger and Dr. Fred A. Marrs. Both have been at the college since 1935. The health service helps to a great extent in conserving the health of the student body. The aim is to prevent sickness by giving attention to minor complaints before they become serious. Consultations at the center are available during regular office hours. Free hospitalization for a limited period is provided for any student. 183ti jWemoriam During the school year 1943 44, students and faculty at CSTC lost a true friend through the death of Thomas A. Rogers. Mr. Rogers was head of the chemistry department, a position he had filled since 1923. All who knew him will remember his cheery smile and friendly greeting. He was a kind and understanding teacher with an almost inexhaustible amount of patience. He was interested in the students and liked to chat with them. No matter what a student's problem was, help and encouragement could always be found if a student talked things over with Mr. Rogers. He was a man who was interested in the little things as well as the big things. He was always ready to listen and liked, to have students come in just "to talk". His laugh was just as hearty when the joke was on him as when he was teasing someone else. Mr. Rogers was active in many things at CSTC. He was instrumental in getting the local Science club affiliated with the National Sigma Zeta society and was active in this organization until his death. Mr. Rogers took an active part on the committee which raised funds for the establishment of the Culver memorial library as a memorial to his predecessor in the chemistry department. He was chairman of the college social committee and in this capacity always had the students' interests at heart. For many years he was faculty adviser of the Iris. Besides his school activities, he was active in many civic organizations and in his church and Sunday school. We at CSTC miss Mr. Rogers. His was indeed a life well and fully' lived. 192021 !U GlaM0 1945 President, EDYTHE OFSTUN------blonde__Norwegian and proud of it---------capable of handling all the buttons in the radio studios_in love with teaching English.... going to New Holstein next fall- Vice-President, ROGER McCALLUM______called "Rog"_______the ambitous type who likes crossword puzzles-idolized by his students.... always laughing- going to Manawa to teach next year____ Secretary.

Thirty-eight men enrolled. This was the lowest student enrollment for many years and was a direct result of the war. Starting the school year off with a bang, the Stevens Point Chamber of Commerce distributed packets of CSTC stationery and tickets to "Going My Way" to all students and faculty. Several basketball games were scheduled and some of these were played before the team was forced to dissolve in January because its members enlisted in the Navy. A Men's Glee club was also started and had several successful meetings before its members, too, were called to service. Oscar W. Neale, for 29 years head of the Rural Department at the college, retired at the end of the 1944 summer session. Miss May Roach has served as acting director for this school year. Fred J. Schmeekle became head of the chemistry department. Dr. Clarence Jayne of the Training School faculty, and Robert Morrison, college history instructor on leave for military service, both resigned their positions here. Miss Margaret Ritchie came to CSTC as the new assistant librarian. Merve and Irene Masten sold the Eat Shop, and Andy and Eva Payzer became the new owners. The wife of General Mark Clark spoke on the subject, "A General's Wife Looks at the War", at the Talk of the Hour club in December. Doctor Harold Tolo's history classes chose as the "Man of the Year" General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and then felt pretty smart when Time magazine followed their lead and named him, too. In February there was the all-school valentine party in the "Hall of Hearts" with the queen and knave of hearts reigning over it. And. speaking of parties, the "Little Red Schoolhouse" party, given by the Rural Life club in April, was definitely the hit of the year. The college purchased a service flag on which are 930 blue stars for CSTC students now in the armed forces, and 23 gold stars for former students who lost their lives in the war. 22BREGGER BREHM BRESKE BROOKS BUCHHOLZ CONNOR DAVIDS DUNN FLUGAUR GLENZER JACKIE BREGGER—Stevens Point; Major: Primary Education; Primary Council, 2,3,4; W.A.A. 1; Newman Club. 1.2.3.4, Treasurer. 4; College Theater. 3; Radio Workshop, 4.

President Mary Asenbrener, Vice-President Elvira Lindow, Secretary Jane Miller, Treasurer The Class of 1946 has shrunk since it was listed as "a large group of energetic and ambitious Freshmen" in the 1943 Iris, and with the diminishing numbers, the responsibilities of each individual have increased in direct proportion. Juniors have shown themselves, however, both willing and able to carry the load with distinction. They have excelled in the scholastic field, as is proven by the fact that 11 members have been elected to honorary fraternities. The Greek social sororities claim many of this class as members and leaders. Juniors holding offices in Omega Mu Chi are Ellen Gordon, Katherine Hope and Lucille Vaughan. Joyce Rathke is president of the Tau Gamma Betans. The Juniors have done well by the publications also. The Iris staff is headed by Editor Jane Miller. Eulah Walter is circulation manager of the Pointer, and, working on both Pointer and Iris staffs, are Doris Ubbelohde, Elvira Lindow and Amenzo Warden. The Juniors elected Edward Nigbor to be their president. Edward is a member of the Student Council, and has been Fred J. Schmeekle's right hand man as assistant in the science department. Vice-president Mary Asenbrener is a Home Economics major, and is a member of Sigma Zeta. Elvira Lindow, secretary of the Junior class, is an English major. She is News Editor of the Pointer, and a member of Sigma Tau Delta. Also majoring in English is treasurer Jane Miller, who holds the position of production manager of Radio Workshop and editor of the Iris, and is a member of Sigma Tau Delta. The absent members of the Class of 1946—those who were called to serve their country and those who entered other fields—may feel satisfied that the students who stayed to carry on the standard of service and leadership in the scholastic field will do a good job. 30 7GlcM 194-6 2nd Row—E.

They are the proud beings who have escaped being freshmen forever. The class of ‘47 boasts of two males who are very active in school activities. The 29 girls expect to carry on for those other males who are in the service and are doing a splendid job there. Of the 29 girls enrolled, six are in the Home Economics department. Those familiar white dresses are worn by Catherine Firkus, Kay Hansen, Bess Jones, Lydia Spaite, Helen Wieczorek. and Monica Gill. Four students are active on the Student Council, with Kay Hansen as vice-president, and Catherine Firkus, Arleen Sicklinger, and Bess Jones as members. In the musical department, the Sophomore girls are contributing. The following are members of the Glee club: Dolorss Cowles, Nelda Dopp, Barbara Felker, Catherine Firkus, Monica Gill, Kay Hansen, Bess Jones.

In mid September there were seen roaming through the halls of CSTC some young people with a slightly bewildered look. They were the freshmen, fewer in number than in years before the war, but having as much enthusiasm and determination as any other freshman class of years past. This year the freshmen, in some respects, are more fortunate than those of other years because they have been able to participate in activities usually barred to them. Through this they have been able to gain much valuable experience early in their college career. Both school publications. The Pointer and The Iris, are staffed by several freshmen. The personnel of the Radio Workshop includes a few freshmen as well. A goodly number of the freshman girls are seen in the Girls' Glee club. The basketball season was successful though short. The squad was composed of all freshman boys, a large percentage of whom were called into the armed forces before the basketball schedule was completed. Unfortunately, the remaining boys were not large enough in numbers to carry on this sport. The freshmen have been active in many of the social functions which have taken place in our college. Early in the social calendar a Hallowe'en party was held. Before this event, the men in our school, faculty included, held a meeting for the purpose of choosing a queen to reign over the festivities. A freshman girl, Gloria Heimbruch, was the lucky one. To be her king she chose Richard Walczak, who helped her rule. There are many students in the Freshman class from various parts of the state, and a few come from out of the state. The class of '48 thinks it is a good class, and sincerely hopes that it can live up to the standard maintained by former freshman classes. A 34 7 3 GLm 1948 3rd Row—B. Crawford. G. Marshall. F.

Bork About 7 4e IfeaA. 1943-1944 The school year 1943-1944 was one of much activity at CSTC. Best remembered. no doubt, is the 97th College Training Detachment, Air Crew, which was here i from March. 1943, to June of 1944. The cadets helped to make possible the Harvest Ball and the Snow Ball given by the sororities. There were several romances and marriages as a result of friendships made during this time. Nelson Hall was called Nelson Hall Barracks then. The Campus Canteen and the Omega Mu Chi Shopping Service for the Air Corps trainees were organized and the college counter prospered. Dean Elizabeth Pfiffner sent out an urgent plea for Red Cross workers and many students and faculty members answered the call. College Theater presented many long-to-be-remembered plays, among them, "Arsenic and Old Lace". A wall case for pictures of former students who are now in service was put up by Tau Gamma Beta and by the end of the year was nearly filled. The Student Lounge was planned and decorated by several school organizations. Miss Myrtle Spande became a member of the college faculty to replace Miss Ruby Greiling, who entered Red Cross work overseas. There were losses on the faculty because of the death of Thomas A. Rogers and Gilbert Faust's leaving for the Navy. In March, CSTC put on a Victory Carnival at which over a thousand dollars' worth of war bonds was sold. In March, also, the college won the Treasury "School at War Flag" because 90 percent of the students purchased war stamps. To climax a busy but enjoyable year there was the 50th anniversary banquet in May for all alumni, faculty, and seniors. Yes. CSTC was fifty years old in 1944. 4143PrUmasuf, Council MEMBERS Jacqueline Bregger Alice Breske Betty Brooks Lucille Dunn Florence Flugaur Jeanie Glenzer Rose Marie Howes Mary Lou Hutchins Helen Jacobson Joan Joosten Joyce Kopitzke Beatrice Pavey Lucille Pfund Audrey Priem Dorothy Radtke Marlys Reed Gloria Rybicke Audrey Short Marjorie Stimm Adeline Theisen Shirlee Tobias Solveig Waag Geraldine Walters Aletha Westfahl Clara Winter The Primary Council is an organization of those students who are specializing in primary education. The group is fortunate in having an able and popular leader in their adviser. Miss Susan Colman. The council seeks to foster a high professional standard among its members at its monthly meetings. Because the council is eager to develop its members socially as well as professionally, many social functions are held, these being in the form of picnics, theater parties and just plain 'get-togethers'' after many of the meetings. Officers of Primary Council are: Audrey Short, president; Betty Brooks, vice-president; Shirlee Tobias, secretary; and Marjorie Stimm, treasurer. 44Qn nuncvi Hound JaJUe Grammar Round Table is an organization of the CSTC students who are interested in teaching in the intermediate grades and junior high school. Charles F. Watson, director of the grammar department, is their capable adviser. Monthly meetings are held, at which time various topics are discussed. The discussions are informal and include subjects which are of current interest. The usual plan of procedure is a brief resume of the topic by one of the members, followed by a general discussion by the entire group. Subjects of discussion this year included the use of propaganda, the problem of post-war Germany, and the Russian situation. Even the Dormites managed to rouse themselves early enough one Saturday morning to join the rest of the group for an interesting tour of the Whiting-Plover paper mills. Of course, everyone was on hand. too. for the crowning activity of the year, a picnic at Iverson Park.

Alpha Kappa Rho is the local honorary music fraternity, which was founded at CSTC in 1937. Peter J. Michelsen has been its faculty adviser since its organization. Alpha Kappa Rho has as its aim the stimulation of an appreciation of music. Outstanding musicians who have proved their ability in the world of music are considered as members. Students must have a high scholastic average, and have taken a certain amount of work in the various music courses. The officers are: Irene Ludwig, president, both semesters; Joyce Rathke, Dolores Rondeau, vice-president; loan Joosten. Dolores Cowles, secretary; Dolores Rondeau. Mary Ann Hot-vedt, treasurer.

Their aim, as members of this national honorary science fraternity, is to create interest and to promote scholarship in the various fields of science. With this aim in mind, members are chosen who have a high academic average, and who are majoring in mathematics or science. During the year. Sigma Zetans have listened to talks on current scientific interests. Among their speakers was Dr. Wessink of Wisconsin Rapids, who explained the chemistry of paper making. Other talks were on flying, tropical diseases, the Chicago Chemistry convention, and the electronic microscope which is now being developed.

The proud wearers of the pin for the first semester of this year were Nelda Dopp and Irene Mork and for the second semester, Doris Ockerlander. Last year the Tau Gams sponsored a harvest ball which was very similar to homecoming dances of former years. For the victory carnival they put on a humorous skit called "This Ain't The Army". The Tau Gams also purchased and maintained a picture case for snapshots of CSTC students serving our country in the present war. Members of Tau Gamma Beta take part in many school activities and several are in the honorary fraternities. In Alpha Kappa Rho are Joan Joosten, first semester secretary.

One of the teachers of CSTC is wont to say. "It is amusing to watch the girls arrive in fall with their arms full of numerous and awkward bundles. But it is even more amusing to watch the procession in spring as they leave, struggling to carry with them a heterogeneous collection of everything that will not fit into a suitcase.” For what girl who has spent a year at the Dorm has not added to her possessions many souvenirs of the enjoyable times she has had there. The Dormites are a gay lot, and on Friday and Saturday evenings, when "quiet hours" are waived, the Hall resounds with laughter and song. The Dormites began their social calendar for 1944-45 with a picnic at Iverson Park. Several parties were enjoyed by the group during the year. In November, a Thanksgiving dinner was served, and a formal banquet preceded the CSTC Christmas concert in December. A mother and daughter banquet was held in May. Democracy is the rule, and the girls govern themselves through a group of elected representatives. The Dorm council is headed by the president, Gerry Walters. House meetings are held once a month, and serve as a clearing house for complaints and suggestions. Miss Rose Barber, director of Nelson Hall, is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin. She first came to the Dorm in 1942, when she served as dietitian of Nelson Hall Barracks for the 97th College Training Detachment, Air Corps, and continued there as director with the return of the girls to the dormitory in the summer of 1944. 72fl UjO+l eJlall 73Student Gounod Despite the low enrollment at CSTC, the 1943-45 Student Council has continued to be active. As was natural in the present war, many of the Council's activities have centered around war projects. Every Tuesday was set aside as war stamp day and war stamps were sold from a gaily decorated booth on the second floor. During the Sixth War Loan drive in the autumn of 1944 the Council sold both stamps and bonds at any time during the school week. In the spring of 1944 the Council sponsored a Victory Carnival, which had for its purpose the selling of war stamps and bonds. A large number of both stamps and bonds were sold at this carnival. The Student Council also assisted the faculty committee in charge of CSTC's golden anniversary celebration in June of 1944. Officers of Student Council for the year 1944-45 were: Betty Pohlman, president; Rose Marie Howes, secretary-treasurer; Kay Hansen, secretary; Marjorie Stimm, publicity manager; and Bob Cashin, assembly chairman. Second semester, Patricia Nelson was elected to fill the vacancy left by Rose Marie Howes, who left CSTC in January, 1945, to accept a teaching position. 74W. A A "Sports for all and all for sports.” That is the motto of WAA. and the Waa's have done much to uphold this motto. A peppy group is the Women's Athletic association. Its aims are to promote sportsmanship, to encourage interest in sports, and in so doing to raise the standards of women's athletics. This group is affiliated with the American Federation of College Women, a national organization. The sports are scheduled according to their seasonal aspect. Fall features hiking and archery, while winter sees volleyball, basketball, table tennis, and shuffle board. In spring the Waa’s thoughts turn to tennis, archery, soft ball and other outdoor games. The game room is headquarters for all Waa activities. First of the year's activities was an outing to Iverson Park. A Christmas party was held and the group sponsored a Christmas Cheer program in the Union. Officers of the organization are Bess Jones, president; Nelda Dopp, vice-president; Alice Johnson, secretary-treasurer; and Kay Hansen, press representative. Miss Myrtle Spande is the organization's able and popular faculty adviser. Naomi Barthols Alice L. Johnson Eloanor Oistun Goraldino Clark Alice R.

Central State and its athletic coach, George Berg, had a basketball team this war year. Undaunted by the manpower shortage the Bergmen turned out to be a scrappy little team. While never having more than 10 men the squad played a hard fast game of ball, laying four of their five opponents by the heels. Although none of the games was official conference basketball, play was as spirited as one would find anywhere in any conference setup. Star player of the team was George Prihoda, guard, demon on long shots. His running mate, Don Vetter, was a dependable performer, and Howard Peterson was usually able to make the scoring column. Matt Martens and Bob Cashin, guard and center, also bulked large in the scoring department. Other mainstays were Lloyd Anderson, Jack Jenkins, Bernard Mozuch and Bill Mellin. All of the boys on the team were Freshmen. In their first game the Bergmen laced St. Norbert's 28-21 at DePere and then beat them again to the score of 50-46 on Point's floor. The Pointers subsequently whipped Oshkosh 35-30, and Carroll 30-24, and dropped their lone game to Milwaukee Teachers, a bigger, more powerful aggregation, to the tune of 49-35. Only one of the games, St. Norbert's, was played on the Pointers' floor. The team was disbanded in December when six of the 10 regular players enlisted in the United States Navy. Central State Teachers wishes these men all success in their new and bigger game. If team spirit counts for anything we know that these men will live up to the highest traditions of the United States Navy. 76fealketLall LLOYD ANDERSON BERNARD MOZUCH JACK JENKINS DON VETTER GEORGE PR1HODA 77MetnosUed.—fe fosie Jlte Wai 787980VALLEY SALES CO.

The Red Cross, born in the heart of humanity, has become a universally honored symbol that sustains that hope — and fulfills it by countless acts of mercy... ministering to the wounded with transfusions of life-saving blood plasma in the midst of battle . . . providing food and comfort for our boys who arc prisoners of war... recruiting and teaching nurses . . . maintaining contact between men in all branches of service and their folks at home. Tn these and many other ways, the Red Cross is working ceaselessly to relieve the suffering, privation, and loneliness caused by war—and is still ready, as always, to give prompt aid to victims of devastating floods, train wrecks, fires, and other public catastrophes.
