Along with the initiation fun and private parties at rendezvous 35, were the lota versions of Dragnet, staged on Wisconsin Point for smelts. OFFICERS First Semester John Schmidt Calvin Kessler Ronald Hicks Jack Stevens President V. President Secretary Treasurer Second Semester Dick Heytens Calvin Kessler Bill York Bob Sanborn The lota Delta Chi fraternity started the year off with a bang. After welcoming students to the new academic year with an all-school mixer, the fraternity followed up by capturing Homecoming honors, lota-man Jim Rotsaert received the crown of Homecoming King. An aggressive lota campaign, which included a skit that was literally a riot—complete with "firemen" converging upon the auditorium, and a float in the Homecoming parade, culminated with the student's choice of Jim as their "King-sized Candidate." The remainder of a busy semester was taken up by a private dinner-party, rushers and initiation activities, a toboggan party, and several semi-formal parties. We elected Dr. O. G. Manion as our co-adviser with Dr. Jay McKee.Lambda Delta Chi Donald "Chin" Neely was the Lamba Delta Chi Homecoming candidate in the first big activity of the fall term. Only five members remained at the beginning of first semester, but we were soon brought up to strength after a successful pledging campaign. A Hallowe'en dance and a Hunter's Brawl was put on during the fall term. In the second semester, the annual L. D. C. formal, "The Shamrock Dance," and a banquet were held. Mr. Tychsen, our very able adviser, and all the members agree that this has been a very successful year. OFFICERS First Semester Jack O'Brien Don Neely Jim Unseth Jim Unseth President V.

The fraternity then started work on the preparations for Homecoming with Dan Burbey as our candidate. That annual event was followed by the co-ed "Turkey Chase" as a publicity stunt for the annual Thanksgiving Formal, which was held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, November 27, to the theme of "Autumn Serenades." The next social success of the fraternity was the December 4 "Hoop Hop" basketball dance.

Plans for Homecoming were carried throughout by decorating the windows. We had a stag dinner in the lounge with games afterward in November. After Thanksgiving vacation we started decorations for Christmas which included trees, wreaths, and window decorations. We had a party combining a dinner for members of the dorm and later in the evening a party for the girls from Crownhart. After Christmas we finished off the semester with a strong flourish of studying which netted us a fair average as a whole. Second semester we overcame our losses by transfers and withdrawals by the enrollment of new students and others who wished to enjoy our good conditions of living. A ping pong tournament and more parties climaxed the year. 98Front Row: Roger Meier, Harlan Ware, Oonald Bergman, Cletus Koehler, Ronald Albert, Jim May, Bill Tuck, Don Button, Merle Brown, Marvin Nevola.

DISTINGUISHED CADETS 129The 1954 Gitche Gumee staff is proud to dedicate this year's annual to one who has devoted thirty years of her life as a librarian at this institution. Joining the library staff as a junior assistant upon graduation from this institution in 1924, she has devoted herself to serving the student body and faculty faithfully besides going on to obtain a degree in library science at George Peabody College and doing further graduate work at the State University of Iowa. She became head librarian in 1947. A gracious lady with an even disposition, she has been ever loyal to the student body, the faculty, the college and its high standards, and her fellow workers. She possesses a sense of humor not normally associated with dusty tomes, and is a raconteur of rare ability with stories ranging from the moron to reciting the famous poem "The Highwayman."
