FEATURES or '44 AND '45
Another school year has gone by, and with it comes the presentation of another
Minneiska. When work was begun on this 1945 yearbook, its purpose was well in mind.
We, the staff, Wish to have folded within its pages those unforgettable college memories
so dear to every student. We have recorded in word and picture as many events and per-
sonalities as possible that every student may keep them ever at his fingertips as a ready
index to his part in this past college year.

War has again left its imprint on the life
at W. S. T. C. in the year of 1944-45. Ac-
customed to smaller classes, predominantly
feminine, by now most of the college stu-
dents on the campus have come to realize
more and more that being a part of the home
front entails further responsibility than the
mere acceptance of fewer mixers and for-
mals, and evenings now devoted to studies.
War casualty lists have not overlooked W. S.
T. C. alumni, and more than one new gold
star has been added to the college honor roll
after the names of former classmates and
friends. These have given the majority of
the student body a personal shock and added
poignancy to the realization that war is a
personal thing and cannot be fought on the
A visible evidence of this cognizance was
the output of Red Cross bandages made by
co-eds who regularly met on Monday eve-
nings to make those 4x4ts. With groups rep-
resenting each sorority as well as the Inde-
pendent Women, each hour and a half in-
creased the number of bandages to meet the
Whitewater quota. Mrs. Fred Winkelman,
assisted by Mrs. Mary Fricker, served as the
Red Cross advisor; and Annabelle Hoessel
was student chairman, assisted by a student
The national war loan drives also were not
neglected by the student body. Competition
among the four classes in purchase of war
bonds and stamps at the college bank was
promoted. During the sixth war loan drive
the senior class attained the highest goal.
In additon to their investment in Victory
through war bond purchases, many W. S.
T. C. students made a more personal contri-
bution by donating blood to the Red Cross
blood bank. A number of students have
given not once, but several times.
A select group of ttW. S. T, Cfers" is the
group of ex-servicemen who have already
done their part in winning the war in both
hemispheres. They have now returned to
iiThe Hill" to continue their education and
to do their part in winning the final Victory.
A glance at the college life barometer on
the W. S. T. C. campus in 1944-45 shows a
slight rise in all those aspects of daily living
on the campus which make for a true ticollege
life? For the past several years, our alma
mater has been struggling against the decline
and inertia in college affairs due to the more
drastic needs of a nation at war. Faced with
a sharp decrease in enrollment due to the
departure of men to all branches of the serv-
ice, as well as senior students who answered
the need for teachers, the iiyoung ladiestt
seminary, at Whitewater seemed an almost
certain result. But, like the ups and downs
on Dr. Lee,s production graphs, W. S. T. C.
in the past year has begun its upward climb
from its war-time slump. Already signs
point to the revival of the traditions which
are a part of the memories of every former
W. S. T. C. student.
Indicative of better times to come are the
facts and figures of enrollment tabulated by
the Registrars office. The freshman class is
shown with superior numerical strength with
123 members. uWith an ever-increasing en-
rollment in the freshman class, prospects for
future enlarged classes are good.
In addition to high school graduates who
are interested in continuing their education
is a small but growing number of veterans of
W. S. T. , C. BEGINS UPWARD TREND
World War II Who are continuing their edu-
cation at the ttNormalW Aided by the gov-
ernmentts program for the rehabilitation of
honorably discharged servicemen, twenty
veterans of the war enrolled in the fall of
1944. Second semester registration added
still more names to the files of active stu-
The social season at W. S. T. C., beginning
with Freshman Week, sponsored by the
W. S. G, A. and ending with the usual hend-
of-the-yeartt banquets of the various organi-
zations, showed a definite improvement over
previous years. Though knitting and writ-
ing letters bearing A. P. 0. numbers were
still No. 1 on co-ed51 lists of "must dot,
things, an occasional date did come to mean
more than just a dessert fruit. Although
most sorority and fraternity formals were
still only pleasant memories or wishful
dreams, the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity
did succeed in sponsoring a Spring Formal.
But let it not be said that social life was lack-
ing on the campus. A Phi Chi dance in the
early autumn proved highly successful as
did the Commercial Club dance in February.
Stunt Night, a tradition which has man-
aged to survive every year, again was the
main topic of conversation as well as the
cause of much enthusiasm and hard work.
Although the real homecoming at W. S.
T. C. is being postponed until alleno, not
quite allealumni can be present for a Vic-
torious homecoming, the Fall Festival did
serve as a war-time homecoming. The first
event of its kind since the homecoming of
1941, many alumni returned to the scenes of
their college days to renew as many old
friendships as possible.
A womenis hockey game in place of the
usual gridiron classic drew much interest
when the WOWS tangled With the Beloit
hockey team. A victory for W. S. T. C. re-
vived and carried on the tradition of a vic-
torious homecoming game.
Still another change in the college scene
was the revived interest in dramatics, as
amply proven by the workmanlike perform-
ances turned in by the Thespians who pre-
sented a three-act play as a prelude to the
Fall Festival. No longer did the director
have to scan the play lists for all-women
casts as many of the men tried out for parts
and brought them to life on the stage.
Due to the energy and enthusiasm of the
veterans, a revived athletic program made its
appearance on the campus. After a year of
quiet, the rafters of Hamilton Gym again
rang with student cheers as the basketball
season began with a quintet representing
W. S. T. C. In the absence of a regular
coach for college athletics, Mr. Fred Trewyn,
head of the College High Athletic Depart-
ment, assumed the responsibility of coaching
the college team. A schedule of five home
games and four games away kept the team
on its mettle throughout the season.
Though not a dlrect part of the college
itself, yet such an intrinsic part of college
life, the popular Goal Post, too, underwent
changes. Genial Ben and Ev, Whose friendly
greetings made the ttG. P31 a second home to
many of the students at W. S. T. C., were
missed by the entire student body when they
left for the West. Another visible change
was the alteration of the second story to pro-
vide much-needed eating facilities. The re-
moval of the dance fioor was missed by those
Who would rather dance than eat, but the
need for a co-op was met by Sadie J ones, who
managed the mess hall in addition to assum-
ing the management of the Goal Post.
A flash-back over the year 1944-45 can be
summed up in a few short wordsean up-
ward trend. Though the years immediately
after Pearl Harbor were years of change,
this year, with victory in sight, though not
yet won, the changes foretell a brighter fu-
ture for W. S. T. C.

BILLY REIDER, well known to all W. S. T. C. students of the past and present is
no longer chief engineer of the college. Billy, as he is popularly known by everyone,
retired last summer at the age of eighty-two, after serving faithfully at the Normal School
since August, 1898. Billyhs presence has been greatly missed this past school year, and he
will remain vividly in the memory of faculty and students alike.
Pres. Claude M. Yoder
Mr. Dwight M. Warner
Mr. Edgar G. Doudna
President Yoder will be remembered by
the students and faculty of this college as the
white-haired gentleman with the stately air
and kindly manner, whose main concern is
for the welfare of W. S. T. C.
As a result of personal contacts With Presi-
dent Yoder, the students have great respect
for him. From the first days of school the
freshman becomes acquainted with the presi-
dent. When meeting him in the hall, stu-
dents are always greeted With a warm and
friendly tthello? Never too busy to see his
students, the president has always encour-
aged them 'to stop for a personal visit.
One of the new problems which had to be
coped with during the past year was that of
helping the war veterans adjust themselves
to civilian life and the school routine. Presi-
dent Yoder,s vital interest in their welfare
was repeatedly shown through his personal
contacts with the veterans. He also took an
active part in state-wide discussions on the
amount of college credit which should be
given to returning veterans who have com-
pleted intensive training courses While in
The two other members of the administra-
tion Who are vitally interested in all current
problems of W. S. T. C. are the regents, Mr.
Edgar G. Doudna and Mr. Dwight M. War-
ner.- Mr. Doudna also serves in the capacity
of Secretary of the State Board of Regents
of Normal Schools. Mr. Warner, better
known as ttPop" Warner to the students, is
the resident regent of this college.
Cooperating with the administrative
forces, keeping oHicial records, and assisting
L department heads are all duties which are
undertaken by the secretarial staff in main-
taining the efficiency of W. S. T. C.
Mrs. Ann Dahle serves in the capacity of
secretary to Dr. Beery, Registrar. In addi-
tion to keeping the ofIicial records and mail-
ing transcripts, she must be on her toes con-
tinually to answer all types of inquiries from
Formerly employed as secretary in the col-
lege office, Mrs. Olive Kohlmeyer was sec-
retary this past year to Mr. P, A. Carlson in
the Commercial Education Office. Much of
her time is spent assisting in the work of
placement of students in the commercial cur-
Miss Maeta Lewerenz as financial secre-
tary must see that the books of the college
are in balance. Maintaining a budget, pay-
ing bills, cutting down on unnecessary ex-
penses all have a part in Miss Lewerenz,s
Relieving President Yoder of various du-
ties wherever possible, plays a part in the
work which Mrs. Margaret Rinn undertakes
as secretary in the college ofi'ice. One can
easily imagine how busy Mrs. Rinn is be-
cause of the many responsibilities which are
incurred by one who is secretary to the
Mrs. Mary Updegraif acts in the capacity
of secretary in the training school office. Her
duties as secretary to Mr. Cannon of the
training school are many and varied, but,
nevertheless, center around one objective,
and that is making the training school an
efficient part of the college.

Overcoming all obstacles confronting them,
the senior class, reduced in size, has success-
fully completed its four-year course. The
1941 freshman class of 193 members has
dwindled down to sixty-seven in 1944-45
with five members already out teaching
without degrees. The war has been the cause
of many noticeable changes in this Senior
Class. March of their sophomore year found
most of the boys being called into the service,
when the Army Reserve was called. Al-
though these boys have left, and, as yet have
not returned, they are still vivid in the minds
of their fellow classmates.
The senior banquet was held in early J an-
uary, so that both January and June gradu-
ates could attend in one large group.
The class was further diminished by the
graduation of fifteen seniors on January 18.
Due to the accelerated program these seniors
left the institution to join in the ranks of the
Many campus leaders were found in this
senior class. The Trindal twins were very
active in sports, With Janice president of W.
A. A. in her junior year. Joyce was presi-
dent of W. S. G. A. in her senior year. Presi-
dent of the Inter-Sorority Council, president
of A Cappella, and secretary-treasurer of the
senior class was Kathleen Rogers. Mary
Dickerman was Vice-president of Primary
Club and also president of the Band. Repre-
sented on the Royal Purple staff was Mary
Kyle, Who was also the secretary and treas-
urer of the Inter-Sorority Council. The edit-
ing of the Royal Purple was done by John
Garstecki who also headed Mercier in his
junior year, and was Vice-president of the
sophomore class. President of the junior
class and a member of Kappa Delta Pi, was
another active senior, Ross Van Lone.
Even under the stress of war, the senior
class tried to follow tradition as much as pos-
sible. Both the mid-year and June gradua-
tions saw the seniors wearing caps and
gowns, marchingto the processional and re-
cessional, and hearing excellent commence-
Class meetings were presided over by Ann
Gaveras, with Jean Hogie taking over in
Annls absence. The job of keeping the min-
utes and the books straight was handled by
Kathleen Rogers. Warren C. Fischer, Who,
was elected sponsor in his sophomore year,
guided and helped the class through their
last three years.
As this senior class goes out into the teach-
ing profession, it will carry with it memories
that never can be forgotten-of their friends,
their experiences, and of a school that has
contributed so much.

When the doors of W. S. T. C. were opened
on September 7, 1944, there were seventy-
four students who registered as sophomores.
These same seventy-four students little re-
alized the vastness of the knowledge that
was to be acquired during the year.
Dr, Leets Economics class paved the way
for further study in the political, social, and
economic aspects of the country. It caused
many a student to burn the midnight oil on
quite a few nights. Miss Clemts typing clas-

things as sleeping, eating, playing, and

on two of the schools executory committees;
Helen Neer from Cable was on the Convoca-

On the fifth of September some one hun-
dred twenty-three students enrolled as fresh-
men in the Whitewater State Teachers Col-
lege. Included in the class was a group of
twenty war veterans who added excitement
and activity to the life on the campus.
The first week was a busy one for all stu-
dents, but especially for the freshmen girls.
NBig Sisterstt proved more than helpful in
acclimating their ttLittle Sisters" to life at
W. S. T. C.
On the first evening following the trials of
a day spent in registering, Big and Little Sis-
ters gathered at the Log Cabin for the annual
Bonfire and Sing. Acting as chairman upon
this occasion was Joyce Trindal, president.
of W. S. G. A. The men met in the gym for
their icevbreaker ceremonies.
On the next day there was a picnic at City
Park. Games Which helped ttFreshies" be-
come acquainted with classmates were
played. Club Night was on Thursday. On Fri-
day, Freshman Week came to a conclusion
with the all-school mixer held in the men,s
gym. Babe Schonath and his Band furnished
It was only a short time before these
Freshmen were ready to call themselves full-
iiedged members of the W. S, T. C. class of
,48. They had very easily adjusted them-
selves to the various activities of college life.
Under the able leadership of Mr. Thomas
Goff, the class activities were carried on suc-
cessfully. Early in the semester William
Ryan was elected president of the class; Wil-
liam Sievers, vice-president; Jack Johnson,
secretary-treasurer; Rudolph Boes, member
of the Convocation Committee; and Win-
fried Hensel, member of the Student Wel-
The freshmen soon became active mem-
bers of the religious groups on the campus,
and took part in the activities of Academic,
Commercial, Primary, and Alpha Clubs. It
Was early found that the fun one can have in
college repays for all the hours spent in
The able talents of the freshmen were
brought out in various programs presented
to the student body. The freshmen became
very proud of the vocal talents of such mem-
bers as Iris Allen and June Carpenter.
Musicians of the class soon became active
in Band, A Cappella, Zeta Eta Theta, and
Treble Clef. Dramatic ability of the fresh-
men was disclosed through various plays and
activities of Thespian.
Many freshmen girls helped with the roll-
ing of bandages for the Red Cross. W. A. A.
hockey games, basketball games, and other
sports activities also drew the attention of
Freshmen also took part in the various
campus parties and social affairs. They
worked long and hard for the success of the
Minneiska and the Royal Purple. Helen Eg-
gert, Iris Allen, Eleanor McQuade, Carole
Olson, and Mary Frings were elected by the
girls 'as members of the W. S. G. A. Council.
The entire year was quite an enjoyable and
interesting one for the freshmen. Much
knowledge was gained, but all agreed that
there is still much more to be acquired.

Under the leadership of Clarence Kurth as
president, the Academic Club, now firmly
established, held its regular monthly meet-
ings. They truly gave Robertls ttRules of
Orderli a work-out at their meetings. Aid-
ing Clarence in his duties were Eleanor
Koehler as vice-president, and Phyllis Skalet,
secretary-treasurer, and Phyllis Chamber-
lain as Royal Purple reporter. Upon Clar-
encels graduation at mid-year, Eleanor Koeh-
ler took over the presidency. Clarence ac-
cepted a teaching position in Milwaukee.
uI wonder where it could be? itNow, let
me see? "Gee, I wish I could find it." These
were a few of the many comments heard as
the Academics held their first social meeting.
The meeting took the form of a rip-snorting
Qn ZWX efee lg
treasure hunt. Groups of Academics could
be seen snooping around the college grounds
Hjust lookingfl Tom Mairis group proved
victorious and ttto the victors, go the spoils?
His group was awarded a box of candy, which
was passed all around to console the losers.
After the treasure hunt was over, the group
proceeded to the GO. Rooms for refresh-
ments, games, and songs. Cookies and soda
were served to a very hungry group.
Another social meeting which proved to be
a success was the Wiener roast which took
place at Mr. Wellers' home. Mr. Wellers
was the sponsor of the Academics succeed-
ing Mr. Frederick Schmidt, Who served last
year. Apple cider, wieners, pickles, and
marshmallows were the treat of the evening.
Songs were sung and games were played be-
fore the meeting was adjourned.
Not only did the Academics have social
meetings, but they also devoted some of their
meetings to a more serious subject.
Mr. G. B. Winsor, acting principal of the
Junior High School, gave an interesting talk
on the development of the child and how
teachers can help in the development process.
A general discussion followed by many ques-
tions showed the great interest of the group
in this important subject. Refreshments
which included ttcokes" and cookies were
served to complete the evenings entertain-
The Ouija Board proved to be the main at-
traction at another social meeting. It gave
some very interesting facts, but did not prove
to be too embarrassing. Mildred Hetzel was
the proud owner. After playing a few more
games, chocolate milk and doughnuts were
The Christmas Party held December 7 in
the GO. Rooms was another successful social
meeting. Mr. Wellers took the group
through his shop in the high school and en-
lightened some of the members as to the mys-
teries there. After a few games had been
played, refreshments were served.
The year was a success both socially and
also from the educational standpoint. The
program was planned to provide entertain-
ment and informative discussions, thus com-
bining work and play.
Academic Club is composed of students
enrolled in the academic department, and
was organized in 1936. Its regular monthly
meetings were much looked forward to, as
they always proved to be exceptionally in-
teresting. Academic Club is the youngest of
any of the curriculum clubs at W. S. T. C.
The sponsorship is changed each year in
order to secure a wide range of ideas from
many fields, thus this year Mr. Wellers, the
speech and manual training instructor acted
as sponsor. One of the groups earlier ad-
visors-Mr. Chopkis now serving with the
Commercial Club grew to greater impor-
tance this year, practically doubling its mem-
bership. Records showed that the club had
about one hundred twenty members.
The club was again assisted by Miss Laura
Hamilton, who sponsored the organization.
The presidency was held by Mildred Duff, a
junior from Trempealeau; Rose Jankovic, a
senior from Eagle River, was vice-president;
Carol Ranum, a junior from La Crosse, per-
formed the duties of secretary; and Bette
Neumann, a junior from Milwaukee, kept
the finances correct in her job as treasurer.
The Royal Purple reporter was Mary Kyle,
senior from Whitewater. The social chair-
man was Nancy Strodel, with Jean Hogie
and Mae Alice English to assist her.
Due to the coinciding of meetings with the
American Legion, it was necessary for Com-
mercial Club to change its meeting time to
the fourth Thursday of each month. Prior to
this, meetings had been held on the first and
third Thursdays of each month.
The year began with a picnic held at the
City Park. A lunch was served, games were
played, and messages were presented by the
oii'icers to new commercial students on the
Early in the school year, mimeographed
copies with the lists of the committees to take
charge of each meeting were distributed to
each member. These committees were each
composed of about iifteen members.
One of the highlights during the first se-
mester was the convocation meeting, which
was sponsored entirely by Commercial Club,
Coming as it did, just prior to the Fall Festi-
val, and since it was Commercial Club,s job
to provide publicity for the Festival, it was
very much in order to have a preview of the
First of all, the cast of itBogeymanK the
Thespian play, presented several scenes from
their production. Then the masculine ele-
ment of W. S. T. C. did their part by giving
the male version of Saturdayis hockey game
between the WOWS and girls of Beloit Col-
lege. This was cleverly done; and it ended
when one of the fellows was dragged from
the stage by his uteammates", and taps was
played on the baritone by Jackie J oosten.
This was followed by a scene from the fes-
tival dance. A typical mixer dance with
girls dancing was shown as Helen Kratzat
sang ttGl. Jive" followed by "More Than
You Know". Coffee and doughnuts were
served in the domestic science room to con-
clude a very entertaining meeting.
The December meeting was postponed
from Thursday to Friday night, December
15, because of contiicting meetings. This
meeting was purely social, being the annual
Christmas Party. The credit for the success
of this party goes to Ann Gaveras, who
served as chairman. Cards were the chief
entertainment; bridge and five hundred, and
hearts were the games played. Following
this, Santa Claus, alias Mr. V. C. Graham,
appeared on the scene and distributed pres-
ents to everyone. Refreshments, consisting
of cupcakes and ttcokes" were then served to
conclude the party. Christmas carols were
sung with Margaret Reuhl at the piano.
On February 23, Commercial Club spon-
sored an all-school mixer in the form of a
hard-times party. The decorations helped to
provide just the right atmosphere of Shabbi-
ness. General chairman of this dance was
Virginia Dobbs. Vivian Broman was ap-
pointed to take charge of refreshments; J une
Engelke took care of advertising; Elaine
Douglas headed the decorating committee;
and J ane EdWards was in charge of music.
There were other affairs which helped
make the year an interesting one for Com-
mercial Club members, among which was a
theatre party. Several speakers also ap-
peared to talk on subjects of interest to po-
tential commercial teachers.
A11 in all, the club did a good job of organ-
izing students enrolled in the commercial
curriculum. Interesting programs and par-
ties helped make the year successful.
To prove that the life of a future rural
teacher is not all work and no play the Alpha
Club was organized. The club progressed
rapidly under the co-sponsorship of Miss
Clara Tutt and Mr. Clay Daggett. It is open
to all students enrolled in the Rural Educa-
tion Curriculum and has always been an ac-
tive organization With varied and interesting
A business and social meeting was held
once each month in the G. 0. Rooms. Pre-
siding officers for the year were Dorothy
Coleman, president; Louise Schwandt, vice-
president; and June Carpenter, secretary-
treasurer. The social program of the club
was arranged by Ruth Rittler, social chair-
man. Social activities were carried on out-
side of the monthly meetings. Early in the
year, Mr. Daggett entertained the entire ru-
ral student body at a picnic supper at his
home. Annual events of the club are the
banquet for former Alpha members at the
State Teachers' Convention at Milwaukee,
and a banquet at the college for Alpha mem-
bers who are teaching in the accelerated pro-
gram. Picnics were held for rural summer
Among the various activities of the club
is patriotic work. The members have done
creditable work in preparing U. S. O. scrap
books under the guidance of the Whitewater
Federation of Womenis Clubs.
Although membership in the Alpha Club
is small at the present time, the lack of quan-
tity is made up by quality. Gold Alpha pins
are the coveted awards given to each mem-
ber who has completed the course in rural
It is true that the training of future rural
students could be in no better hands than
those of the present Alpha members.
This year the Primary Club and its spon-
sor, Miss Williams, had as its main objective
the collecting of Readers Digests for boys
overseas. . Md
The club opened the year with an informal
get-together at Miss Williams, home to ac-
quaint the freshmen with the organization
and its work. In the past, the club has done
something for the school each year. Last
year, a certain amount of money was contri-
buted to the Royal Purple fund, so that the
publication could be continued. This year,
the group earned money to provide for the
purchase of additional choir robes.
In October, the primary juniors escorted
the freshmen on an exploration party
through the school. The freshmen were ac-
quainted with the school tower and the scenic
beauty surrounding the college.
In December, the traditional Christmas
faculty tea was given in the Elementary De-
partment. The primary teachers and stu-
dents acted as hostesses. Invitations were
extended to the faculty and their wives and
husbands. The guests were escorted through
the different classrooms and were shown the
childrenis work. Punch and dainty cookies
were served by the hostesses.
The officers of the organization were:
president, Beverly Sawyer; vice-president,
Mary Dickerman; secretary-treasurer, Jean-
ette Ludtke. Officers are regularly elected at
the end of the year, but due to the accelera-
tion of programs, two of the officers grad-
uated in January. The offices for the second
semester were held by Mattie Lee Stephen-
son, president; Mary Dickerman, vice-presi-
dent; Charlotte Weeks, secretary; and Betty
W. S. G. A.
The sponsoring of Freshmen Week, at the
opening of the school year, was the first of
many undertakings of the Womenis Self
Government Association during the current
year. The Big Sister Movement with the
traditional Girlsl Sing, a picnic at Starin
Park, Club Nite, and a Mixer started the
new students off on a profitable year at
Whitewater State Teachers College.

Again this year the Council took care of
the school's Lost and Found department, sold
school supplies, and twice daily posted the
names of those who were lucky enough to
receive mail through their oii'ice. Credit also
goes to this organization for the up-keep of
the bulletin board, which is now composed of
several divisions, properly headed, for the
many organizations of the school.
The Council acts on campus problems, such
as hours for girls and housing conditions. It
also sees that the Woments Lounge, the addi-
tion of which they were responsible for two
years ago, is kept in order.
The Council sponsored various assembly
programs throughout the year. The first of
these were made up of freshman talent, and
was held the early part of the first semester.
On January 11, 1945, a concert and lecture
hour was given by the students of the School
for the Blind, located in Janesville, Wiscon-
sin. In February, the Council sponsored an
all-school party, which was attended by a
large share of the student body and faculty.
Miss Florence Goodhue was faculty advi-
sor; Joyce Trindal was the president. She
was ably assisted by the following oiTicers:
Esther Venning, secretary; Verna Allen,
treasurer; and Betty Peterson, vice-presi-
The Inter-Sorority Council, which origi-
nally was formed in 1936, promotes good
feeling between the four sororities on the
campus. The council is composed of one rep-
resentative of each sorority and the various
presidents. The offices rotate among the
group and this year found Kathleen Rogers,
an Alpha Sigma, serving as president and
Mary Kyle, a Sigma Sigma Sigma, acting as
secretary-treasurer. The sponsorship of the
group circulates among the sponsors of the
sororities. Miss Marie S. Benson served as
advisor at the monthly meetings of the group
held in her room.
The other members of the council are
Kathryn Campbell, Alpha Sigma; J anice and
Joyce Trindal, Delta Sigma; Margaret Reuhl,
Tri Sigma; and Marjorie Hall and Mary
Dickerman, Theta Sigma. Mattie Lee Steph-
enson became a member of the council upon
Kathryn Campbellis graduation at mid-year.
Council members make rushing rules for
the four sororities. The council sees that all
groups abide by these rules. At their
monthly meetings the problems of the dif-
ferent sororities are openly discussed.
In the early fall, the group entertained at
a tea in the Womenis Lounge in honor of the
new freshman girls. The council members
were in the receiving line and other sorority
girls assisted. Faculty members were also
special guests at this social event.
Sorority competition was found in the an-
nual Inter-sorority bowling tournament spon-
sored by the council in March.
In pre-war years an Inter-sorority ball has
been the highlight of the season, but that is
off the social calendar until the college
campus is back to normal.
DELTA SIGMA EPSILON
The girls of Delta Sigma Epsilon started
this years activities with the big task of re-
decorating their chapter rooms, at 103Vz N.
Prairie Street. After excess paint, brushes,
paper, and old rags had been cleared away,
there emerged two very pretty rooms of
which the girls are proud. It was the privi-
lege of Irene Tischer to be the first girl for-
mally initiated in these rooms when she went
through the initiation ritual on September
25, 1944, and on the same day Miss Mabel
Zellhoefer was initiated as the chapters new
The week end of October 6-8 was a busy
and happy one for many of the actives and
alums, as it was the occasion for the Round-
up held at the house; It was the first time
that most of the girls had seen the new chap-
ter rooms. After everyone had become re-
acquainted, the girls went out to dinner and
later came back to the house for more visit-
Again this year the girls prepared a
Thanksgiving Basket for a needy family in
the community. The Tuesday before the
holiday found several of the Deltas deliver-
ing the food to the family.
On December 2, 1944, the Delta girls were
hostesses at the formal rush dinner held at
Bassett House. As has been the custom for
several years, the girls prepared their own
meal. The Christmas theme was carried out
throughout Bassett House and the sorority
house. Tables were decorated with tiny
Christmas tree place-cards, and choir-boys
were clustered around holly-wreathed red
candles. After dinner the girls and their
guests went to the sorority house where
games and dancing furnished the entertain-
ment. From their place of honor on the
snow-covered bannister, Santa and his rein-
deer greeted the girls as they entered the
Bid-night found 24 girls desiring to pledge
Delta Sigma Epsilon, and these same girls
were pledged on December 13, 1944. After
Christmas vacation 3 party was given the
actives by the pledges, and soon after the
second semester commenced, many of the
pledges went through Hell-Week and were
initiated into the sorority as active members.
Under the direction of Peg Burke and
Edith Arndt the Christmas Sale, which was
held on December 16, 1944, at Hackettis
store, was a big success. The girls had been
working hard for some time in preparing
their pieces of handicraft for this annual
The actives and pledges met at the house
on December 20 and went caroling. After-
wards they returned to the house and popped
popcorn and had hot chocolate and cookies.
Mrs. Robert S. Hill, National President of
Delta Sigma Epsilon, visited the local chap-
ter on her inspection tour. The girls were
very much honored by her presence, and a
tea was held for her at the house with both
actives and pledges attending. Mrs. Artie
OiConnor, patroness of the group, gave a
dinner for her and the oilicers and sponsor
of the chapter.
The sorority was active in all of the ath-
letic tournaments held on the campus. Jean
Hogie was elected captain of the basketball
team, and the girls entered the volleyball,
bowling, and tennis tournaments.
Janice Trindal was the president for the
year. Joyce Trindal was vice-president and
also had charge of the pledges. Delores
Harms was treasurer with Ruth McFarlane
as assistant. Betty Peterson, recording sec-
retary, was on hand at all meetings to record
the minutes and transactions. The task of
writing letters and sending in reports to the
national oflice was given Peg Burke as cor-
responding secretary. The other girls who
held offices during the year were Vivian
Broman, sergeant-at-arms; Vivian Heid-
mann, historian; and Esther Venning, chap-
lain. Miss Mabel Zellhoefer, the new spon-
sor, was on hand to guide the group through
many difficult tasks.
Alpha Sigma, the oldest social sorority on
the campus, inaugurated its school year by
entertaining the alumnae who live in town at
a buffet supper held in the Domestic Science
Rooms. After the supper, which was pre-
pared by the girls, both alums and actives
returned to the house for an evening of talk-
ing, laughing, and singing.
The annual alumnae luncheon was held at
the Medford Hotel in Milwaukee during the
Teachers Convention, and several members
of the active chapter attended. It was at this
luncheon that the enthusiastic alumnae pre-
sented the local chapter with luncheon
cloths and napkins, with the sororityis Greek
letters embroidered in the corner in the tra-
4 The Fall Festival weekend, which replaced
Homecoming, was one of the big events of
the year, with all of the alumnae invited to
return. Twenty-nine of them came and were
feted at a buifet supper given in their honor
at the house. The alums then had the oppor-
tunity of seeing the newly decorated chairs
in the chapter room.
First-semester rushing was culminated
with the formal party held at Bassett House
on November 30. The sorority colors and
flowers provided a decorative touch to the
dinner. Mrs. Frederick Schmidt sang two
selections, which were enjoyed by everyone.
The trio also sang, closing with the "Sorority
Sweetheart Song." After the dinner, the
actives, rushees, and guests gathered at the
house for an informal get-together, at which
refreshments were served.
Bid-night found sixteen girls selecting A1-
pha Sigma, and they were pledged on De-
cember 13. After a pledge period, and the
ever-remembered itHell-Week," formal ini-
tiation was held early in the second semester.
A light lunch was served after the impres-
sive candlelight ceremony took place.
The Alpha Sigma Trio, composed of Kay
Rogers, Jeanne Olsen, and Kay Campbell,
sang at the Fall Festival dance, an all-school
dance sponsored by the Phi Chi Epsilon fra-
ternity, and at many of the sorority func-
tions. The last appearance of this group was
at the senior banquet in J anuary, since Kay
Campbell was among the mid-year grad-
uates. J ackie Gay became a part of the trio
during the second semester.
The sorority as a whole was active in
school sports and tournaments. Marian Ben-
son was chosen captain of the basketball
squad, while Mattie Lee Stephenson led the
For the third consecutive year, an Alpha
Sigma was editor of the Minneiska. This
year it was Marian Benson, an elementary
junior. She is also a member of Kappa Delta
Pi, national honorary fraternity for elemen-
tary and academic students. Another active
Alpha Sigma was Kay Rogers, who was
president of Inter-Sorority Council and A
Cappella Choir, and secretary-treasurer of
the Senior Class. The Managing Editor of
the Royal Purple for the second semester
was Betty Gluch, another member of Kappa
Delta Pi. Helen Artz headed this fraternity.
Betty Hanley presided over Thespian and
Delta Psi Omega. Mattie Lee Stephenson
was the junior representative on the Student
Health and Welfare Committee and second-
semester president of Primary Club.
Every Monday night the Alpha Sigma
sorority was well-represented at Red Cross
Bandage Rolling. A service flag, hanging in
a window of the chapter room, honors those
numerous Alpha Sigmas now in service.
President Kathleen Rogers conducted the
meetings, with Hilde Bartell taking over in
Kayis absence. The writing of the minutes
was the task of Mattie Lee Stephenson, while
Charlotte Weeks was the corresponding sec-
retary. The treasurer's position was filled
by Lucile Miller, and Marian Benson was
sergeant-at-arms. Betty Hanley and Jackie
Joosten guided the future members through
their pledge period. Mrs. Mary Fricker,
sponsor, gave her helpful assistance and
guidance throughout the year.
The front campus of our Alma Mater is snow-laden, after White-
wateVs first real snowfall. The firs, pines, and sturdy oaks seem to
be over-burdened as a result. After a truly extreme Wisconsin
winter, W. S. T. C. students awaited anxiously the approach of
Hamilton Field was given a rest this year, as college football
was again listed as a war casualty. The gym, however, was kept in
constant use as the college basketball team met various opponents.
The front entrance to the college presents an entirely
diferent aspect to students in early autumn than in mid-
winter. School is just commencing, and behind these
portals all students hope to acquire knowledge.
Blonde hair, and a winning
smile are two of the outstanding
features possessed by Dorothy
Sayre. Dorothy, better known
as Dixie to the student body, is
well known for her performan-
ces on the xylophone. A year
ago, she was one of a group of
W. S. T. C. students who pre-
sented programs at various
schools in this vicinity.
Marge Hall, a commercial jun-
ior, has been the efficient busi-
ness manager of this 1945 year-
book. Along with the many de-
tails involved in this position,
Marge has served as president of
W. A. A.; a very active campus
organization. W. A. Afs biggest
undertaking each year is the
sponsoring of hStunt Night."
SIGMA SIGMA SIGMA
The Alpha Xi Chapter of Sigma Sigma
Sigma started off its season of activities by
having an informal gathering at Miss Laura
Hamiltonts home. The party was sponsored
by the alumnae organization, the Philos.
After a delicious supper, games were played.
It will be remembered that the Philos pre-
sented the award for the outstanding girl in
the sorority for the year, 1943-44 to tiDixie"
Sayre. Dorothy Pester received the bracelet
from the sorority actives for being the out-
standing senior. Dorothy was also honored
by receiving the award of the American Le-
gion by being voted the outstanding senior by
the faculty and her classmates.
The Tri Sigmas proved to be one of the
fastest bandage rollers on the campus at the
Monday night Red Cross meetings. J eanette
Ludtke was tthigh man" for the organization.
Miss Mary Calkins was the alumna chosen
by the national office to make an inspection
of the sorority. Mary is teaching at Aurora,
Illinois in the primary department. She
chose to come on the week-end of the home-
coming Fall Festival. On Sunday, an alum-
nae tea was held. Mary Ellen Schleck, Miss
Hamilton, Miss Benson, Mrs. Updegraff, Mrs.
Converse, Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. Gnatzig, and
Theresa Charles were some of the alums
present. Punch and cookies were served.
One of the highlights of the year was the
formal rush dinner given on Wednesday, De-
cember 6, 1944. Capitalizing on the fact that
one of its members, Winogene Hasse, was
from Hawaii, the theme of the dinner was
Hawaiian. Winogene supplied many of the
decorations used at the dinner. Hawaiian
gourds, tapestries, and pictures, were among
them. They were attractively displayed and
arranged at Bassett House.
Unusually unique was the centerpiece on
the main table. It depicted an Hawaiian vil-
lage having a hut, an Hawaiian dancer, a
lake, pineapples, and trees. The individual
tables for four had centerpieces of Hawaiian
dancers with hula skirts and leis.
As each rushee entered Bassett House, she
was presented with a fiower and a lei by
Winogene Hasse. Winogene also gave the
native dances in the program that followed
the dinner. Mildred Duff and Dorothy Sayre
contributed to the program with songs of
Hawaii. Speeches were made by the spon-
sor, Miss Marie S. Benson and Mary Ellen
Converse, alumna. Afterwards, the rushees
were taken to the house for an informal
Many of the girls were active in extra-
curricular affairs during the year. Mildred
Duff was president of Commercial Club and
was aided in her duties by Carol Ranum as
secretary, Bette Neumann, as treasurer and
Nancy Strodel as social chairman. Ann Gav-
eras was vice-president of W. A. A., while
the sorority had two representatives on the
W. S. G. A. council, Winnie Little and Wino-
gene Hasse. In the class elections, Ann Gav-
eras was elected president of the senior
class; Mildred Duff was elected vice-presi-
dent of the junior class, and Phyllis Martin-
son was elected secretary-treasurer of the
sophomore class. In the literary field, we
find Mary Kyle acting as co-news editor of
the Royal Purple. Dorothy Sayre was circu-
lation manager and Bette Neumann was as-
sistant business manager.
Thirteen rushees were pledged in a candle-
light ceremony on Wednesday, December 13
at the sorority house. They were Carol
Krumdick, Virginia Vanderburg, Betty Pol-
lard, Greta Buckley, Helen Kratzat, Lola
Ruehmer, Georgia Vannie, Dorothy Rus-
teika, Sally Fenner, Eleanor McQuade, Helen
Eggert, Priscilla McKewan, and Jane Dietz-
The February graduation brought a loss of
three membersaDorothy Sayre, Grace Sev-
cik, and Jeanette Ludtke.
The chapter was led by the following offi-
cers: Mary Kyle, president; Margaret Ruehl,
vice-president; Mildred Duff, recording sec-
retary; Jeanette Ludtke, corresponding sec-
Saunders, keeper of the grades.
The chapter also wishes to express thanks
for the sponsorship of Miss Marie S. Benson.
THETA SIGMA UPSILON
We have come to the close of the school
year. The memories of Theta Sigma Upsilon
sorority are indeed ones that will not be
erased. from the mind.
The school year opened with a meeting at
Miss Lefleris new home. To make the oc-
casion more festive, alumnae were invited

The enthusiasm of the Theta Sigmas was
duly rewarded by a swelling of their funds
from a rummage sale in early fall.
This group, not forgetting that we are in
war and that all their duties are not within
their chapter, gave much of their time to Red
Cross work. By answering their call to duty,
the Thetas put aside their work for an hour
each Monday night and made Red Cross sur-
Some of the members were given respon-
sibilities in the numerous school activities

The Thetas took an active part in the ath-
letic program of the college. With the orga-
nization of a womenis varsity hockey team,
Marjorie Hall, Bonnie Duren, Helen Watson,
Lois Hansen and Betty Dabareiner were ar-
dent members of this team. The Thetas
proved their athletic interest also by enter-
ing into the sports program with their basket-
ball, volleyball and bowling teams.
The homecoming activities of the sorority
were among the highlights of the year. All
the alumnae of Rho Chapter of Theta Sigma
Upsilon were invited to attend the home-
coming festivities as guests of the active col-
lege chapter. Twenty-one alumnae attended
the dinner given in their honor at the Meth-
odist Church. Virginia Dobbs acted as chair-
man of the entertaining program given for
the alumnae. After the dinner the group ad-
journed to the sorority house for a social
The Theta Sigmas were indeed honored
and proud When their president, Mary Dick-
erman, was crowned Queen of the Fall Festi-
val at the Fall Festival Dance. With this as
a climax of the festivities of the week-end,
the Thetas indeed claimed success.
Rho Chapter of Theta Sigma Upsilon held
its formal dinner at Bassett House on Novem-
ber 27. Guests included rushees, sorority
patronesses and alumnae. The theme of the
dinner was Toyland; stuffed animals were
used as decorations. At each place were
Pekinese dogs of white yarn with pink rib-
bons on which were printed the sorority let-
ters. The dinner was served by candle light
with the candles decorated to represent pep-
permint sticks. Sorority songs were sung
and a delightful program was given. Phyllis
Chamberlain, as fairy queen of toyland, pre-
sented each guest with a personalized mes-
sage. Following this, bridge, bunco and five-
hundred were played. As an informal group,
all adjourned to the house where they sang
and had light refreshments.
Miss Bertha Leiler, sponsor of Rho Chap-
ter and National Vice-president of Theta
Sigma Upsilon, not only successfully guided
the Whitewater chapter, but also was respon-
sible for the revision of the National Pledge
Manual. The oHicers of this national chap-
ter are: Mary Dickerman, president; Mae
Alice English, vice-president; Beverly Saw-
yer, secretary; Marjorie Hall, treasurer; and
Patricia Dietzler, editor.
SIGMA TAU GAMMA
The Kappa Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma
has adopted policies now that show the
thoughts and best wishes of the members are
with their brothers who are in this great
world conflict. Since the war broke out, in
order to consolidate members at home and
abroad, the Kappa Chapter has mailed to
some two hundred and fifty members, during
each year, four newsletters of seven or eight
thousand words each.
The local chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma
provides an opportunity for suitable college
boys desiring to become fraternity members
to join a fraternity which will enable them
to improve themselves, socially and academ-
ically. Sigma Tau Gamma has chapters on
the campuses of twenty-seven other such col-
leges, scattered over the United States.
Hell Week again found the Sigma pledges
attired as the uperfect gentlemen". Daily
meetings, tisound-offs" at the Goal Post,
"yes" and 9nd, dates, and waiting on the
actives characterized their busy week.
On the local campus, Kappa has interested
itself and assumed leadership in many worth
while campus activities. Bill Uglow, presi-
dent of Sigma Tau Delta, is also a member
of Delta Psi Omega. Bob Toler has served
on the art staff of the Minneiska. He and
Ralph Lenz were active members of the col-
lege basketball squad. John Garstecki held
the important position of editor of the school
paper, ttThe Royal Purple", first semester.
William Ryan served as freshman president.
The Kappa Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma
was founded in April, 1928. This is the only
national fraternity on the campus. Through-
out its history, Sigma Tau Gamma has been
fortunate to have Dr. H. G. Lee as its spon-
CHI DELTA RHO
Chi Delta Rho, the youngest fraternity on
the campus, was organized in 1929, with a
charter membership of twelve members. At
the time of organization, the fraternity was
known as Beta Kappa Nu. In 1934, after
steady growth in its membership, the group
became interested in the advantages of a
state-wide fraternity. As a result of this in-
terest, a conclave was held at Madison with
delegates and faculty representatives, where
the Whitewater Beta Kappa Nu fraternity
became the Beta Chapter of Chi Delta Rho.
The fraternity decided to restrict its chap-
ters to the State of Wisconsin, with its pur-
pose, the building of fellowship and scholar-
ship between the colleges of the state.
On our campus, Chi Delta Rho has been
prominent in many activities. Its members
have held numerous class offices, have
brought many honors to the college foren-
sics, and have been active in cooperating
with other organizations in promoting social
activities on the campus. College athletics,
intra-murals, Royal Purple, Minneiska, Pi
Omega Pi, Commercial Club and many other
organizations on the campus have found Chi
Delt men carrying responsibilities of impor-
tance in making these groups successful.
With World War II temporarily interrupt-
ing its pledging activities by virtue of an
agreement between its members, Chi Delta
Rho looks forward to the return of a normal
enrollment of men students, when once again
they can offer with sincerity, the advantages
of Chi Delt fraternalism.
This year, two men on our campus are
keeping this state-wide fraternity alive.
These two men are Mr. Henry Collins and
Ross Van Lone. Orchids to them both; they
are doing a grand job.
PHI CHI EPSILON
fiPop" Warneris "Cabin in the Pinesh was
the setting for the first Phi Chi meeting of
the year. All new men in school came to
enjoy the fine fellowship, refreshments, and
open-hearted hospitality that have made
these meetings at Warneris such a grand tra-
The pledges were organized the first week
of school and undertook to sponsor an all-
school party in Hamilton Gym. Jack John-
son, acting as chairman, supervised the
transformation of the gym into an attractive
Phi Chiis again took a big share in the
athletic honors of the school. Football was
an impossibility, but basketball provided a
means of building up inter-school athletic
spirit. Phi Chiis on the team were: Art
Drew, Fritz Stieber, J ohn Graff, Ralph Jan-
owski, Trevor Jones, Ed Lambeseder,
iiWhitey" Mittelsteadt, Oscar Olson, Carl
Chesnik, and Bill Dwyer.
Fall festival weekend will not soon be
forgotten. The actives, pledges, alumni, and
sponsors gathered at Knilansi Steak House
for a rare banquet. Here it was that the
first news letter to all alumni was presented
by Mr. F. A. Schmidt. From Knilansi the
group trekked to Hamilton Gym to watch
active John Knutson be crowned King of
the Fall Festival and to see Win Hensel in
the Court of Honor.
Phi Chi,s were represented in Choir, Band,
Delta Psi Omega, Commercial Club, Relig-
ious Clubs, Thespian, and others. Several
of the boys helped make Thespian an active
group, particularly with the presentation of
iiBogeyman,i in which John Knutson, Fritz
Stieber, Art Drew, Eddie Lambeseder, and
Joe Werner all cooperated to make it a suc-
cess. Rudy Boes took over the job of athletic
manager. During second semester a lively
Hell Week was climaxed with a formal ini-
tiation for Win Hensel, Rudy Boes, John
Graff, Joe Werner, Ralph Janowski, Fritz
Stieber, Frank Schrimpf, J ohn Persons, Fred
Paradies, Art Drew, and Bernard Fluaitt.
New students pledging second semester
were: John Page, Oscar Olson, Bill Dwyer,
itBudi, Hoelsback, Dick Caird, and Fred
Officers for the first semester were: Carl
Chesnik, president; Matt Winn, vice-presi-
dent; and J ohn Knutson, secretary-treasurer,
Second semester ofIicers were: John Knut-
son, president; John Graif, vice-president;
Joe Werner, secretary-treasurer; Fritz Stie-
ber, corresponding secretary; Ralph Jan-
owski, historian; Frank Schrimpf, sergeant-
at-arms; and Rudy Boes, pledgemaster.
The Armed Forces took Howie Asmus to
the Navy and' Trev J ones to the Air Corps.
Phi Chis have keenly felt the loss of many
of their servicemen in this war. By attend-
ing the memorial service for Harry Caird,
the chapter honored one of its brothers who
made the supreme sacrifice.
Phi Chi has now a service fiag with seven
gold stars. The members honor the mem-
ories of the following who have died in serv-
ice: Lt. Walter Eck, Lt. Harlan Helgeson,
Capt. Howard Koeppen, Ensign Thomas
Schmidt, Capt. James McQuade, Sgt. Richard
Von Wald, and Pvt. Harry Caird.
The fraternity is proud of its men now in
service. Of their 403 members, 232 are in

mire iiPop" Warner. "Pop" was the first
initiate of Phi Chi Epsilon fraternity. Since
that time he has had a guiding hand through
the years of Phi Chiis history. It is through
his efforts that the Phi Chi alumni have kept
united. Now the fraternity is pleased to
learn that iiPopi, has been appointed Regent
for this school for the full term of five years
beginning in 1945. The Phi Chis are confi-
dent that the best interests of the State
Teachers College at Whitewater will be fore-
most in his mind.
DELTA PSI OMEGA
Delta Psi Omega, national honorary dra-
matic fraternity, is composed of those who
have done outstanding work in drama. Mem-
bers are chosen according to the number of
plays in which they have participated along
with the quality of their performance, knowl-
edge of stage setting, and ability to produce
At the beginning of the school year there
were only five active members on the
campus. This small number was due to the
large number of actives who graduated or
went out into the teaching field. Three new
pledges were initiated near the close of the
first semester. More students became asso-
ciated with Delta Psi Omega during the
second semester after displaying their acting,
staging, and directing ability.
Meetings are held once a month after the
regular Thespian meeting, as all members of
Delta Psi Omega are also members of Thes-
The fraternity was guided through its
yearis activities by the following officers:
president, Betty Hanley; vice-president, Bea-
trice Richards; secretary, J ane Edwards;
treasurer, Gwendolyn Turnell. Mrs. Carl
Enger of the training school is sponsor of
The Omega Chapter of Delta Psi Omega
was instituted at Whitewater State Teachers
College in May, 1929. This was the twenty-
fourth chapter of the national fraternity.
Mrs. Empfield, the former Florence Hol-
combe, was sponsor of the organization until
1943, when Mrs. Carl Enger took over the
position. Delta Psi Omega was the first hon-
orary Greek organization on the campus. It
continues to maintain rigid standards and
has a limited membership of twenty. The
group works for better things in drama.
Second-semester activities included a trip
to Milwaukee to attend a stage play, and a
contest among the members to see who could
direct a one-act play most successfully.
SIGMA TAU DELTA
The Nu Gamma Chapter of Sigma Tau
Delta, national professional English frater-
nity, was granted its charter in 1931. It is
under the sponsorship of Miss Helen M.
Knosker who is also the national historian.
Miss Beulah Jackson Charmley, a well-
known Wisconsin poet, is a charter member
and acts as advisor and honorary sponsor of
Each year Miss Charmley sponsors a Cre-
ative Writing Contest in which is entered
material written by Sigma Tau Delta mem-
bers during the year. Prizes are awarded
for the best prose and poetry.
On October 17 the initiation ceremony was
held at the home of Miss Knosker. By candle-
light the pledges became members in full
standing of Sigma Tau Delta. At the close
of the ceremony the new members received
cardinal red roses. The initiation ended with
the reading of a favorite poem by each mem-
ber. The group then went to the Blackhawk
Hotel in Fort Atkinson where they enjoyed
a steak dinner.
The annual Christmas party was held at
Miss Knoskeris home. As is the custom each
member read an original poem about Christ-
mas. Next a luncheon was served, and to
climax the party, gifts were exchanged.
Several of the members received recog-
nition in the winter number of The Rec-
tangle, the national magazine of the frater-
nity. Articles are selected from those sent
in by the more than one hundred chapters in
the United States to appear in the magazine.
New members were initiated again on
March 7 in the G. 0. Rooms.
Sigma Tau Delta meets twice a month, and
at these meetings original compositions are
read and studies are made of literature, al-
though writing is especially encouraged.
KAPPA DELTA PI
Serving as an incentive to students in the
academic and elementary curricula, Kappa
Delta Pi is the national academic scholastic
fraternity. Composed of juniors and seniors
Who have met the scholastic requirements of
the organization, Kappa Delta Pi carried out
a program combining educational and social
activities during the year. The local chapter,
Delta Nu, was formally installed on the
Whitewater campus on January 22, 1938.
Early in the fall, pledging and initiation
ceremonies were held for eleven new mem-
bers of Kappa Delta Pi. A formal banquet
at the Blackhawk Hotel in Fort Atkinson
followed the initiation program.
Regular meetings of the group were pre-
sided over by the president, Helen Artz.
Jeanette Rhode served as vice-president. A
record of the minutes of the meetings was
kept by the secretary, Ruth Earleywine, and
Mary Dickerman, treasurer, had charge of
Second semester activities included a
theater party for the group. Several new
students who met the standards for eligi-
bility of Kappa Delta Pi were initiated as
members in the early part of the second see
At an early meeting, Mr. Wendell Cannon,
who had been chosen to complete the un-
finished term of Dr. C. 0. Wells who is serv-
ing with the U. S. Navy, was elected for a
full term as sponsor and counselor of the
local chapter of Kappa Delta Pi.
Three representatives, Eleanor Koehler,
Jeanette Rhode and Ruth Earleywine, from
the local chapter represented Delta Nu at a
meeting of state chapters of Kappa Delta Pi
which was held at Milwaukee during the
teachers convention. The main event was a
breakfast at which the chapter at Milwaukee
State Teachers College was the host. Re-
ports of the activities of the different chap-
ters were given.

For something unusual the group had a
theater party December 9. They attended a
movie, and later gathered at the Goal Post
The highlight of the year was on Decem-
ber 28 when two representatives went to
Chicago to attend the national Pi Omega Pi
Convention. Helene Holmes and Elizabeth
Marsh reported their interesting conclusions
at the next meeting.
The task of the year was contacting all
members who are now out teaching and else-
where. From the information gathered, a
directory was made up and published. Work
was also started on a service roll which in-
cludes the names of all members who are
now in Uncle Samis forces, their ranks and
where they are stationed.
Pi Omega Pi is a national honorary frater-
nity for commercial students. To be eligible
for membership in Pi Omega Pi, students
must be a junior or senior, and have attained
a B average. ..
Membership in the Psi Chapter is the goal
of many ambitious commercial students. This
fraternity was brought to our campus in
1932, and President C. M. Yoder, Miss Laura
Hamilton, and Mr. Paul A. Carlson are char-
Most of the time bad weather interferes
with the noble efforts of our forensic group
and this year was no exception. The group
got through the debating sessions, however,
and were on their way home before Old Man,
Winter, in the form of snow, held them up.
This year, before the Debate Tournaments
were underway, the Office of Defense Trans-
portation issued an order cancelling all such
tournaments. Consequently, the Tenth An-
nual Debate and Discussion Tournament,
scheduled for February 9 and 10, had to be
called off at the last minute after arrange-
ments had been made for a luncheon, dinner,
The forensic group was able to compete in
one tournament. This was held at Normal,
Illinois, where they entered in the Junior
Division. The squad was made up of stu-
dents who lacked college debate experience,
but despite this handicap the group received
a rating of excellence. Iris Allen, a fresh-
man, brought top honors to this group with
her oratorical discussion on Negroes. The
fourteen members who made up the debate
group were new at college debating, and
Annabelle Hoessel was the only veteran on
Pi Kappa Delta, national forensic frater-
nity, had as its president, Annabelle Hoessel.
The Epsilon Chapter was installed on this
campus two years ago. This year the chap-
ter acquired a service fiag upon which there
are now 42 blue stars representing members
in the armed services. In the spring, some of
the members of the forensic group were ini-
tiated into Pi Kappa Delta.
At one of the first meetings of the year,
President Yoder was taken into the chapter
as an honorary member. Miss Ruth Ryburn,
English teacher in the training school, also
attended the Pi Kappa Delta meetings since
she was a member of that group while at-
tending college at Normal, Illinois.
ZETA ETA THETA
Zeta Eta Theta began the year with a
greatly diminished group. However, there
were many new girls about the campus who
were very much interested in music. Many
of these girls attended the party given by
the actives and became interested in joining
the organization. Nineteen girls were
pledged on October 23 and initiated on No-
The officers who led the years activities
were: Rose Prijic, president; Virginia
Dobbs, vice-president; Hazel Sewell, secre-
tary-treasurer; Eleanor Rogalski, sergeant-
at-arms; and Betty Peterson and Rosemary
Dunn, social co-chairmen.
At one of the first meetings, it was decided
to ask Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Foland to become
sponsors. They very graciously accepted
v Meetings were held on the second and
fourth Tuesdays of each month at Bassett
House. Upon joining the club, each mem-
ber automatically became a Junior member

At the regular meetings, discussions of
well-known operas were presented.
One of the activities of the year was the
selling of 2,500 Christmas seals. Each girl
willingly did her part to further the sale of
One of the interesting meetings of the year
was the one at which the new members pre-
sented a program. Beverly Burnell was
chairman. During the Christmas season,
Bassett House was the scene of a joyful
Christmas party for the members of Zeta
A formal dinner was held in February
with valentine decorations. Six girls pre-
pared the dinner.
Thespian, one of the oldest organizations
on the Whitewater State Teachers College
campus, once more took its place as a leader
in the schools social activities.
In the Dramatic Workshop, under the ca-
pable direction of Mrs. Henrietta Enger,
meetings were held each first and third Wed-
nesday of the month at 7 :00. Officers that
guided the clubs destiny were as follows:
Betty Hanley, Elementary J unior, president;
Beatrice Richards, Commercial J unior, secre-
tary; Eleanor Koehler, Academic Senior,
vice-president; Verna Allen, Commercial
Sophomore, treasurer; and Mattie Lee Steph-
enson, Elementary J unior, historian.
The first highlight of Thespiants year was
a party the second week of school to interest
prospective members. The evening was cli-
maxed by an informal pantomine, enacted
by various guests. At the first regular meet-
ing proof of the partyts success was evi-
denced by the initiation and ribbon pledging
of thirty-seven new members.
One of the happy memories of alums and
students alike is the Fall Festival. Thespian
members are very proud of the fact that they
helped make the occasion a memorable one
with their dramatic production. Friday
night, November 17, the curtain rose on
"Bogeyman," a three-act mystery play by
Edwin S. Day. Eerie sounds, shrieks, and
ghosts prevailed throughout the whole play.
The plot centered around the mysteries of
the haunted Dixon mansion located on the
Dixon College campus. Two students, Ez
Dixon and Lanny Harper, played by Fritz
Stieber and John Knutson, were living in
the old mansion and trying very hard to solve
the mystery of the house. ' The Omega
Gamma sorority girls, anxious to purchase
the old home for a sorority house, came to
look it over, but spent most of the time chas-
ing ghosts. Libby and Vicky Green were
portrayed by J oan J ohnson and Marian Ben-
son, respectively; Doris Capelle took the part
of Peg Howard, while Hazel Peterson and
Irene Tischer were the pledges-Patricia
Young and Ellen Mitchell. The house-
mother, Mrs. Whipple, was Gwen Turnell.
The mysteries of the house were solved when
Prof. ttFlunky" Smith, alias Eddie Lambe-
seder, finally admitted his secret visits to the
mansion to gain the proper atmosphere for
writing mystery stories. The humor of the
production lay in the frequent stage ap-
pearances of Charlie, the Negro handyman,
played by Art Drew.
As a climax to the play Mrs. Enger enter-
tained the cast of "Bogeyman" at a turkey
dinner. The general opinion of the cast was
that the time and effort spent on the play was
One of the outstanding meetings of the year
was Mr. James Schwalbachts explanation of
the types of make-up used in the theater. He
passed around photos of models with the va-
rious types of make-up applied. Then he
further demonstrated the art of stage make-
up, by using several Thespian members as
A Christmas party was held December 7
in the girls, gym. The eveningts entertain-
ment included a number .of games, the sing-
ing of carols, and the playing of Dickenst
ttChristmas Carolh starring Basil Rathbone.
The gym was decorated for the occasion in
the traditional Christmas colors. A lunch
was served, consisting of cocoa, sandwiches,
and home-made Christmas cookies.
Other activities of the year were reading
and discussion of current plays, speakers,
skits, and additional events to further inter-
est in dramatics.
The project second semester was the pro-
ducing of three one-act plays.
Thespiants contribution to the annual
ttStunt Night" was well received and given
Various parties and social functions filled
the rest of the organizations time. Thespian

Under the capable direction of Mr. Fred-
erick Schmidt, the College Band once again
completed a successful year. For the first
time in two years, the strains of martial
music echoed across Hamilton Field, and the
College Band once more marched and played
for a football game. The occasion was the
annual College High homecoming celebra-
During the year, the band furnished music
for student programs. The first of these was
the Armistice Day convocation. A short time
later, the band again appeared in public, this
time at the pep rally for the Fall Festival.
Early in December the band furnished the
music for a special war bond rally in connec-
tion with the Sixth War Loan Drive. At the
annual Christmas concert on December 18,
the band was again in the limelight. This
time it furnished accompaniment for the
singing of Christmas carols. The highlight
of the first semester was the winter concert
presented shortly after Christmas. The band
also furnished music at the pep rallies held
during the year for the college basketball
Talent from the group supplied music for
programs both in Whitewater and out of
town. Outstanding among these entertainers
were: Dixie Sayre with her marimba and
Roger Trost with his trombone.
Due to the shortage of members, music-
minded faculty members helped out in the
various sections. Among these were Mr.
Cannon, Mr. Clark, Mr. Collins, Mr. Kitz-
man, and Mr. Graham. Except for these
male faculty members, only two men were
found in the ranks of the group.
Other important events of the year were
the spring concert and a dinner for the band
Oiiicers for the band were: Mary Dicker-
man, president; Lucile Miller, vice-president;
Phyllis Chamberlain, secretary and treas-
urer; and Mea Tennis, librarian,

music are not entirely lovely.
Though the members are but few in num-
ber, there is no lack in quality. The orches-
tra is composed of the following; Roger
Trost, Lorraine Head, Bette Neumann, Ruth
Rittler, Josie Austin, Lois Hansen, Lorena
Adams, and Mitzie Jack. The orchestral in-
strumentation is made up of muted trom-
bones, mellow French horns, ringing trump-
ets, soothing fiddles, saucy saxophones, weird
Clarinets, and a booming bass Viol.
Semi-classical music is the predominating
type that these talented amateurs prefer.
They are, however, kept well supplied with
music of all types, from marches to high
Unfortunately this year, the college stu-
dent body has not had the opportunity of
hearing the orchestra perform frequently.
The group did appear on several of the all-
school convocations held during the second
The man behind the baton, directing this
small but enthusiastic group, is none other
than the beloved Mr. Frederick Schmidt.
With the return of these faithful members,
since none of them are seniors, the organiza-
tion has hopes of attaining new heights.
Judging by the large number of students
who tried out for the A Cappella Choir in the
fall of 1944, one could feel that there was a
tremendous interest in this group growing
among the students. Only half of those try-
ing out were among the lucky sixty. There
was a noticeable increase in male voices,
which assured a better balanced group.
The choir, one of the outstanding organiza-
tions on the campus, is looking forward to the
future when it can resume its tours to the
neighboring towns and its appearance on
radio stations. No doubt this will again
prove to be one of the most effective ways of
advertising the college throughout the sur-
The choir made its first appearance on
December 18, when it took part in the Christ-
mas Concert given annually in conjunction
with the high school and junior high school
choirs. The stage was decorated with ever-
green trees and scenes of the nativity, which
added to the Christmas atmosphere. All
three choirs, accompanied by the band, sang
"Wondrous Things The Lord Hath Done?
and the favorite Christmas Carols. Mr.
Deane Coburn, a guest baritone, sang the
solo in "Wondrous Things The Lord Hath
During the second semester the choir held
one of its social meetings in the form of a

Betty Gluch, vice-president; Helen Neer,
secretary; Gloria Mukansky, treasurer; and
Helen Artz, librarian.
After inactivity for one year, the Treble
Clef music club once again organized this
year under the directorship of Miss Eloise
Koelling, Supervisor of Music in the training
school. This was the iirst college course ever
to be taught by her, and the results were
very good. The girls enrolled in the class
for the musical training as well as for their
Meetings were held regularly each Thurs-
day under the capable leadership of its presi-
dent, Mary Lou Hinkley. Rose Prijic was
elected vice-president; Doris Capelle, treas-
urer; and Betty Dabareiner, secretary. The
club consisted of twenty-two members, a
large percentage of them freshmen.
Social gatherings were held once a month.
The first get-together was a Halloween party
held at the home of Miss Koelling. The girls
spent the evening playing bunco and singing
favorite songs. The party adjourned after
the serving of refreshments. A Christmas
party, an evening of bowling, and hikes were
some of the other social events.
For a few weeks before Christmas, anyone
passing the music room Monday after school
or Thursday eighth hour could hear the
strains of tiAdeste Fidelis" or "The First
Noel." The girls had a special workout on
Mondays in preparation for the Christmas
concert. nChilde Jesus" by Dr. Clokey was
the main feature of the concert, which is
made up of choral parts taken from the carols
of differen countries. This was the first pub-
lic appearance of Treble Clef. The girls,
dressed in their white choir robes, made a
splendid impression. The spring concert was
the second appearance of the group. ttThe
Walrus and Carpenter," a choral ballad by
Percy Fletcher, was one of the main selec-
tions presented on the program.
Treble Clef added to the schools enter-
tainment during the year and was recognized
by both students and faculty.
After a complete reorganization of the
Royal Purple staif, the college paper began
one of its most successful years. The paper
lived up to its purpose of reporting and in-
terpreting all news in which W. S. T. C. stu-
dents were interested.
The first editions of the year caused much
comment because of the many changes intro-
duced. New headline types and styles made
the paper one of the most streamlined in
W. S. T. C. history.
The weekly meetings held each Monday
were dispensed with during the first semes-
ter. Instead, assignments were posted on
the bulletin board outside the Royal Purple
OHice. Meetings were called only for the
discussion of special problems.
A very noticeable change in the paper was
the editorial policy. The editor adopted a
general theme of frankness and truthfulness.
Criticizing some school policies and praising
others, the editorials instigated much thought
One of the features of the first semester
was the sorority and fraternity histories.
Each of these social organizations told some-
thing of its formation, activities, honors, and
Another feature, which appeared in the
ttHello, There" column, was the biographical
history of other teachers colleges in Wiscon-
sin. Some students had wondered about the
activities and policies of these colleges, and
this series of articles provided the answers to
many of these questions.
Other features of the Royal Purple were:
ttItis Greek to Me," an account of the activi-
ties carried on by sororities and fraternities;
the Sportscope thru "Tiny" Lenz, news of
fellows and their sports activities; ttWOW
Doinisi' by Marge, girls and their sports;
ttHave You Met," information about new
students; ttFor Freshmen Only? ttdois and
donits" of life at W. S. T. C.; a corner for
Critics, comments about the Purple and poli-
cies of W. S. T. C.; and ttFrom the G. I. Mail
Bag? news of servicemen.
One of the outstanding publications of the
Royal Purple was the eight-page Service-
menis edition. Plans for this edition were
formulated for some time, and then on Oc-
tober 30 they became a reality. Many of the
boys had requested news and pictures of
familiar Whitewater scenes; consequently,
pictorial views of the college and town were
printed as well as articles concerning them.
As customary, the student directory was
compiled with the compliments of the Royal
Purple staif. ,
The editorship during the first semester
was held by John Garstecki, commercial
senior from Green Bay. Acting as manag-
ing editor was Ruth McFarlane, commercial
junior from Columbus. Co-news editors
were Betty Gluch, primary junior from Ra-
cine, and Mary Kyle, commercial senior from
Whitewater. Marjorie Hall, commercial
junior from Milwaukee, held the position of
sports editor and was assisted by Ralph Lenz,
commercial sophomore from Janesville.
The business staff was headed by Laura
Derosier, commercial junior from Somerset,
assisted by Bette Neumann, commercial jun-
ior from Milwaukee. As head of circulation
was Dorothy Sayre, commercial senior from
Editor during second semester was Ruth
McFarlane. Assisting her was Betty Gluch,
managing editor. Mary Kyle was promoted
to the position of associate editor.
Marjorie Hall handled the duties of news
editor, and Ralph Lenz became the new
sports editor, assisted by Bonnie Duren, com-
mercial sophomore from Cazenovia.
Bette Neumann was the new business
manager. A newcomer to the staif was
Verna Allen, commercial sophomore from
Racine, who filled the position of circulation
Miss Laura Hamilton was the sponsor of
the Royal Purple. Other faculty members
on the editorial board consisted of Dr. E. H.
Evans, Miss Marie S. Benson, Mr. T. T. Golf,
and Miss Edith Knilans.
The year closed with a formal banquet.
At this time promotions for the coming year
Producing a year book during war time is
a diHicult task, as this year's Minneiska staff
soon learned. The task of keeping cameras
and electrical equipment in working order
proved quite a problem. Very little new
photography equipment was available, so
the chief photographer, Mr. Schwalbach,
also the advisor, had to make the best of the
materials on hand. Earlier deadlines had to
be set for cuts and copy because engravers
and printers alike are kept busy with de-
manding war orders, and the staff wanted
to be sure that the books would arrive in
time for distribution.
A staff of thirty have worked together to
bring about this 1945 Minneiska. Marian
Benson, an elementary junior, served as
editor-in-chief, and was assisted by Virginia
Dobbs. The editorial staff consisted of Doro-
thy Rusteika and Hilde Bartell. The busi-
ness manager, Marjorie Hall, a commercial
junior, had Wilma Saunders as her chief
helper. Marge and her staff handled the
advertising and directed the sales in a very
capable manner. Her staff consisted of Be-
atrice Richards, Pat Dietzler, Betty Dabarei-
ner, Peggy Colwill, Mea Tennis, Virginia
Warner, and Georgia Vannie.
Bob Toler and Marian Congdon have
served on the art staff.
The class editors were as follows: senior
editor, Kathryn Campbell; junior editor,
Mattie Lee Stephenson; sophomore editor,
Betty Michel; and freshman editor, Arlyne
The co-sport editors were Betty Gluch and
Serving on the copy and proof reading
staff were Ethel Drews, Ann Gaveras, Doro-
thy Oberg, Mary Kyle, Carol Kalb, and
Mr. Schwalbachls assistants on the photog-
raphy staff were Ruth McFarlane and Ver-
The early part of October found the group
meeting at an organization meeting. Assign-
ments were made and general plans for the
1945 Minneiska were revealed by the editor
One night shortly after the organization
meeting the business manager and other
members of the staff were occupied pound-
ing old copper from cuts used in the 1944
book. The Minneiska has signed a contract
with the government promising to turn in
all old copper. The money from this sale of
copper aided the financial situation.
The small, and seemingly inadequate,
yearbook office in the basement has been the
scene of great activity this past year. Many
a night one could see a light burning until
all hours while staif members worked mount-
ing pictures, writing copy, typing, or proof
reading. When it came close to deadline
time, the noise of two typewriters could be
heard quite frequently down the halls from
the office. The midnight oil was burned
more than once as all had their hopes on re-

The first meeting of the year was held in
the womenis gym, and at this time new mem-
bers were initiated. Winnie Little and
Winogene Hasse were co-chairmen of this
occasion. Twelve members, dressed in ap-

sports in which to participate, and the
method of acquiring points. In order to ob-
tain a pin, it is necessary to have 300 points;
for a "Wi', 600 points; and for a sweater,
1000 points. Initiates went through the
rigors of "Truth and Consequencesf' refresh-
ments were served, and dancing completed
the evenings entertainment.
The next event of importance for W. A. A.
was the Halloween Party. Dancing helped
make the evening enjoyable. In this same
month, W. A. A. acted as host to the Milwau-
kee Field Hockey Club, following the game
with them. This tea was held in the Domes-
tic Science rooms. Team letters were printed
on the napkins.

this all-school affair a success, the women
athletes came through with a really good
hockey team. The opponents, women from
Beloit College, were the special guests at
the alumni tea. Quite a few alumnae were
present at this tea held at the home of Miss
Goodhue from 3:30 to 5:30 on November 18.
Following the annual tradition, W. A. A.
again was the sponsor of a two-and-two
party. This was held on December 11 in the
womenis gym. Girls came dressed in many
and varied costumes. There were couples
dressed as Russians, Chinese, farmers, and
peasants. The outstanding couple of them
all, according to the judge, was the gay-
nineties twosome. This was portrayed by
Leona Tiller and Betty Lou Olson. Second

WOMEN' S SPORTS
Despite the fact that men were again mak-
ing their appearance on the campus, the
feminine sport fans still ttcarried on" with
flying colors. Under the supervision of Miss
Florence Goodhue the coeds enjoyed a full
program of athletic activities.
Archery, swimming, and field hockey were
the first three sports open to girls when
school reconvened last fall. In the archery
tournament the eight hour class succeeded in
defeating the fourth hour class. Gladys
Nafzger and Florence Jackson were named
champion individual archers of W. S. T. C.
Although no swimming meet was held,
classes were conducted for those girls who
were interested. Members of the W. A. A.
were also privileged to use the pool on cer-
tain nights during the year.
The major fall sport was field hockey, and
many W. S. T. C. coeds tttook to" their shin
guards and hockey sticks. Intramural games
were held, and the competition ran high be-
tween the class teams. The sophomores, cap-
tained by Verna Allen, defeated both the
freshman and upperclass teams.
A WOW team was formed from the out-
standing hockey players. On October 14 the
WOWS attended the Milwaukee Field
Hockey Clubis annual Play Day. All the
hockey games played on that day were held
on the field at Milwaukee-Downer. The
Whitewater team was the champion after
defeating both the Ripon and Carroll College
Ann Gaveras captained the WOW team
when they met defeat at the hands of the
Milwaukee Field Hockey Club by a score of
2-1. Betty Dabareiner scored Whitewaterts
lone point during this, the most exciting and
rough game of the season.
The plan of the Fall Festival was to in-
clude some type of athletic sport. With the
absence of a football team, the girls offered
to substitute a hockey game for the occasion.
Honored on Friday night by a Pep Rally, the
WOWS went out on Saturday to defeat the
visiting Beloit College team by a score of
4-2. Marge Hall, Bonnie Duren, and Helen
Watson were responsible for the four points
which brought victory to the WOWS.
The next object for competition was the
basketball trophy formerly held by the Tri
Sigmas. The coeds battled for the coveted
trophy in an intramural tourney during De-
cember and January. Four sorority teams
as well as teams consisting of members of
W. A. A. and the Independents entered the
competition. The Delta Sigma team, cap-
tained by Jean Hogie, succeeded in captur-
ing the trophy.
Although the men had succeeded in form-
ing a basketball team, the girls games still
were a drawing card in campus sports. Sev-
eral inter-school basketball games were held
during the year. The WOWS came out with
one defeat and one victory when they played
at Beloit College. The Aces, an Industrial
League team from Milwaukee, spelled de-
feat for the Whitewater team in Hamilton
Carroll College participated in a Play Day,
a recreational and social get-to-gether, held
in Whitewater. During the day both basket-
ball and volleyball games were held.
With the basketball season coming to a
close, sports-minded girls of W. S. T. C. be-
gan volleyball practice. Sororities, itIndysi',
and W. A. A. again took part in this tourney
for the trophy which was held by the Alpha
Sigmas. The Delta Sigmas, however, suc-
ceeded in taking the trophy from them, thus
becoming the proud possessors of both volley-
ball and basketball awards.
Spring sports were ushered in with warm
weather. Tennis enthusiasts spent hours on
the court practicing for the annual tourna-
ment which climaxed the sport year.
A newly organized group, with a new min-
ister to guide it, were the outstanding fea-
tures of Scrooby as it started on the year's
journey. Winnie Little was elected presi-
dent of the organization with Winogene
Hasse to assist her as vice-president. The
secretarial duties were undertaken by
Ethelyn Colwill, and the financial end was
handled by Beverly Sawyer. J eanette Kitz-
man managed the musical side of the meet-
ings, while the parliamentarian for the group
was Roger Trost. Mrs. Scholl acted as spon-
sor. The new minister, the Reverend Mr.
Harold Rekstad, gave spiritual support
through his eHicient leadership and genuine
interest in the welfare of its members.
Scrooby was organized for the purpose of.
providing religious fellowship for Congrega-
tional college students. The first and third
Tuesday evenings were the regular meeting
nights for the group. Various suppers, pic-
nics, and parties were held during the year,
as well as the regular meetings and discus-
sion programs. Scrooby also played an ac-
tive part in the inter-denominational church
work that was started among the religious
groups on the campus this year.
At the annual church bazaar, Scrooby had
charge of the "fish pondti and sold little felt
pins which the members had made. Among
the welfare work was that of donating a
Christmas basket to a needy family.
Evidence of the young peoples, interest in
world affairs of the present day was shown
by the selection of topics for discussion. Some
of these discussions were "Religion and
War", "Racial Problems of the World", and
"Religionls Place in the Post-war World."
These discussions followed the regular busi-
ness meetings and devotional services,
With the full cooperation of the Reverend
Mr. Rekstad, the interest and support of the
congregation, and the enthusiasm of its mem-
bers, Scrooby has made a fine beginning to-
ward developing a worthwhile organization.

ties of candy bars were sold and supplies
were exhausted by the middle of the day.
The group went Christmas caroling to the
homes of church members. After caroling
they were entertained at the home of one of
the women of the church, Mrs. Hoessel. In
December Miss Betty Garton, secretary of
L. S. A. State Council, spent the week end in
Whitewater. The group participated in an
inter-denominational supper during the first
semester. Early in the second semester the
L. S. A. played host to this same group.
Members of the church invited the group
to their homes. Mrs. Orrin Mason prepared
a delicious meal for them during the first of
the school year. At a later date they went
to the home of Miss Benson. The group ac-
tively participated in making bandages for
the Red Cross. It cooperated with the Fall
Festival Committee in helping serve refresh-
ments at the dance.

A party was given in September to wel-
come all former members and many new
ones who wished to take part in the activi-
ties scheduled for the year. An annual
Senior Banquet was planned in honor of the
graduating members and those of the rural
curriculum who were going out to teach.
Following the trend of previous years the
group remembered former members, who
are now serving in the armed forces of our
country, by sending them packages of "good-
ies." Several of the parties were attended
by some of these service men and women,
namely Carl Loeper and Sgt.'Dona1d Karnes.
Mr. V. C. Graham is the sponsor of L. S.
C. S. Clarence Kurth took over the duties
of vice-president, and Mavis McGhye, those

brecht, the duties of secretary-treasurer were
taken over temporarily by Lola Ruehmer.
The Rev. F. Loeper, pastor of St. Johns
Church, lent spiritual guidance to the group.
Providing an opportunity for all Catholic
students on the campus to meet regularly to
cultivate their common religious interests,
Mercier carried out a year,s program of relig-
ious discussions and entertainment for its
Meeting on the first and third Tuesdays of

by the various omcers. Laura Derosier,
president, directed the regular meetings.
Kathryn Campbell, vice-president, assumed
these duties in her absence. A record of the

tended communion services in the morning.
A highlight of the evening was a talk given
by Miss Ruth Mary Fox, from Milwaukee
State Teachers College.
The outstanding social event in December
was a Christmas basket party. Games and
refreshments added to the festivities.

stage setting was the result
of the efforts of high school
students under the direc-
tion of Mr. J. A. Schwal-
Discussing last-minute details, Mea Ten-
nis and Mr. F. A. Schmidt seem very pre-
occupied. Mr. Schmidt, neatly attired in
his tails, made an impressive sight as he
directed the various groups. During the
course of the evening, the audience partici-
pated in the singing of various traditional
Christmas carols. A quartet, composed of
Phyllis Skalet, Jeanne Olsen, Kathleen
Rogers, and Kay Campbell completed the
program with ttSilent Night?
Stunt Night, annual event sponsored by W. A. A., was
held on March 9. Five organizations entered the serious divi-
sion, and nine, the humorous. The Sigma Tau Gamma stunt,
ttToo Little Timeh, was awarded first place in the humorous
division. HThe Case of Minnie Smoocher or the Eleven
Otclock Mysterytt, presented by A Cappella, placed second in
the same division. The Phi Chi Epsilon fraternity placed first
in the serious division, their stunt being entitled, ttUnited We
Stand? Alpha Sigmats ttWherever You Are" won second
place in the serious division.
Mr. Wendell Cannon, the director of the
Training School, and Mr. J ames Schwalbach,
the principal of College High, did much to
lift the spirit and morale of the student body.
Four new faculty members were added to
the Training School staff this year.
Mrs. Irene Quinn succeeded Miss Louise
Koch in the first grade of the elementary de-
partment. Mrs. Quinn was absent for about

Floy Ann Schimmel, clarinet; Delorus Erickson,
piano; Ed Craft, saxophone; Fred Gale, trom-
bone; Barbara Bulkley, fiute; and Beverly Lude-

COLLEGE HIGH CHOIR
The College High Choir of fifty members was
organized early in the fall of the year. The boys
and girls met in separate groups on Mondays and
Wednesdays, but the entire choir met fourth hour
on Fridays in the College Auditorium.
The choir was under the able direction of Mr.
Schmidt and was accompanied by the talented
Delorus Erickson. The High School Choir, along
with the other school music groups, participated
in the annual Christmas program on December
18 in the College Auditorium. The College High
art classes painted the background of colorful
church windows, which provided a truly Christ-
mas atmosphere. The combined school choirs
sang ttWondrous Thingsf and NAwake Awake,"
to Send Thy Light Forth" and ttThere is No
Other Guide" were the numbers presented by the
High School Choir.

Mrs. Fischer, and the original creation of a mural
on tropical tish for the science room.

The seventh grade class has been in the J unior
High long enough to sense that the type of school
they have rests within their own hands. This job
is extremely important if they are to learn how
to live successfully with each other. This goal
can be achieved by the class through many
worthwhile experiences. In early fall the group
elected class omcers. The president was Harriet
Hanson; the vice-president, Tony Rutoski; secre-
tary, J oan Congdon; and treasurer, Nancy Hough-
ton. Three members of the class, Cecelia Larkin,
Thomas Bray, and Carol Mundinger, were mem-
bers of the Student Council. Helen Leiting took
charge of the Red Cross work, and Johanna Hol-
ford directed the stamp and bond sales. The
class endeavored through active participation to
make Junior High a worthwhile experience and
a stepping stone toward High School.

Evaluation of report cards was also part of
its work. At the end of the first semester, ma-
terials from one hundred other schools in Wis-
consin and Illinois were secured, and compari-
sons were made as to grading, subjects, and study
habits. The last was taken up more than the
others, however, for the students felt that their
study habits should be improved.
Under direction of the council, an athletic com-
mittee was formed; and, as a result, eight basket-

JUNIOR HIGH SPORTS
The Junior High boys, with no football
team because of the lack of equipment,
waited eagerly for the basketball season.
The basketball team was made up mostly of
eighth graders and had only one returning
player from last yearis team, J ames Mitchell.
The team was made up of Mert Taylor and
Don Harden as forwards, Don Agnew as
center, and Jim Mitchell and Jim O,Conner
as guards. J im OiConner rotated most of the
season from guard to center.
The hrst Junior High game was an inter-
squad game. The eligible played the in-
eligible; that is, the boys that were not be-
hind in their work played the boys that were
behind. The eligible won, 19-0.
The game with Jefferson was interesting
and Close with a losing score, 14-16. The
season was a profitable one for Junior High.
The group had its own cheerleaders to spur
the team on to victory.

second graders have also saved and collected
waste materials and have bought War Sav-
ings Stamps. A wee Operetta ttThe Ant Re-
porterh, was given first semester With the
children themselves working on the scenery
and costumes. They also made a border
telling the story of ttLittIe Black Sambo" for
the second grade assembly. .
The third graders, with Mrs. Scholl as
their teacher, spent an enjoyable year study-
ing the ways of living of various people. The
subjects of discussion were: the American
Indian, the Pilgrims, Christmas in Other
Lands, Pioneers of Wisconsin, and present
day living in their local community. The
Study of Pioneers was centered around the
log cabin situated on the back campus! As
a part of the community study, excursions
were taken to many local business places.

graders and their teacher, Miss Zellhoefer,
have been able to visit many far-away lands.
Among them were Switzerland, Holland,
Russia, Peru and the Scandinavian countries.
Original poems, stories, plays; and diaries

orations portrayed the lives, habits, and
customs of people, animals and natural phe-
nomena of these far-away lands.

where Mr. Brooks performed several experi-
ments for them. In the spring, the fifth grade
presented a Spanish Festival. During the
second semester Spanish was studied fifteen
minutes each day.
In the sixth grade social studies classes,
Mrs. Fischer laid the emphasis on European
backgrounds. A program was planned
which made the children understand the
growth of civilization. The first unit was on
Egypt, and was studied through various
means. A play on the story of ttSokar and
The Crocodileii was presented. The Medi-
terranean countries were studied through
mythology. Stories of the Trojan War and
Ulysses were read. In the study of Greece,
it was pointed out how much our civilization
borrowed from the Greeks.
The thought in the minds of the teachers
in the training school is that of preparing the
children for their places in the world of to-
