FEATURES or '44 AND '45 PEOPLE ACTIVITIES SIDELINES TRAINING SCHOOL FOREWORD 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. bAt'Iijd: nanuu-1 4v; -Axx a- In i M.- v.". 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 STUDENTS WORK 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 battlefield alone. 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- FOR PEACE 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 committee. 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. 0 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- dents. 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. WORLD WAR II VETERANS Top Row: Lotz, Chesnik, J ohnson;"Boes, Schrimpf. Bottom Row: Fluaitt, Ryan, Susee, Fuller, Heyse. 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. 12 Pres. Claude M. Yoder Mr. Dwight M. Warner Mr. Edgar G. Doudna ADMINISTRATION 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 service. 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. 14 SECRETARIAI. STAFF 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 prospective students. 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- riculum. I 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 schedule. 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 president. 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.

M., University of Wisconsin SENIORS Gaveras, Rogers, Hogie 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 teaching profession. 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- ment speakers. 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.

Mae English was chosen as president to lead her class- mates. Her assistants were Mildred Duff, vice-president, and Ruth McFarlane, secre- tary-treasurer. During the sixth war bond drive, the class took an active part. With the clever adver- tising abilities of Charlotte ttFinkletl Weeks and Jeanne Olsen, the drive was well pub- licized. Many of the juniors were active in school organizations. Their interests were varied from dramatics to athletics. Betty Hanley, president of Delta Psi Omega, honorary dramatic fraternity, and also president of Thespian, was one of the active juniors. Another important drama- tist was Irene Tischer who took part in many of the school productions. Juniors also took over offices in many of the school organizationseMildred Duff pre- siding over Commercial Club and Winnie Little Wielding the gavel over Scrooby. Journalistic-minded students in the junior class holding important positions on the school paper were Ruth McFarlane, editor- in-chief; Betty Gluch, managing editor; Marge Hall, news editor; and Laura Derosier, business manager. The Woments Athletic Association was led this year by a junior, Marjorie Hall. Marge has been active in sports through all her col- lege career, participating in numerous sports events. 26 For the first time in the Minneiskals his- tory a junior became editor. Marian Benson stepped up from assistant editor to take over the responsibility of putting out the school annual of 1945 under wartime restriction of materials. In September, 1942, there were one-hun- dred and twenty-three freshmen with high hopes of four years of college life. However, during the course of the succeeding two years the number has dwindled to forty jun- iors. Despite the fact that the class has lost so many members, it has remained an im- portant and active part of the college and its activities. The guiding hand of Dr. H, G. Lee as class sponsor aided the junior class. One of the projects undertaken in previous years was the junior prom. In 1942, due to wartime conditions, the prom was eliminated tem- porarily. The social life of juniors as well as the other classes was lax this year. Many of the other activities besides the prom have been suspended until after the war. When the students again return to college after the war has been won; life will go on as usual. Parties, dances, and informal get-togethers will highlight the junior social calendar, once again. Many members of the junior class were affiliated with honorary scholastic organiza- tions. In the early fall they were initiated, and in the short time since, they have be- come active members. Juniors participated actively in school events and enjoyed a highly successful year. Upper Left: Upper Right: Broman, Neumann, Burkitt. Daniels, Duff, Derosier.

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- ses suffered nervous prostrations when she would say, ttWe will now have a speed testft The gym was the scene of great physical exertion when twice a week the primary stu- dents met with Miss Florence Goodhue for their Plays and Games course. Some of the games were even demonstrated out of class to wide-eyed spectators who, for a minute or so, Wished they were enrolled in the primary curriculum. A never-to-be-forgotten course required for sophomores was Psychology. Each stu- dent waited with fearful anticipation the day when he or she was to present his talk before the class. It was amazing What interesting facts were revealed about such every-day things as sleeping, eating, playing, and Working. Of the seventy-four students enrolled, flfty- seven entered as freshmen at W. S. T. C. in the fall of 1943. Nine had work in other in- stitutions before they entered W. S. T. C. Eight of the rural students have already as- 30 sumed the role of teachers in rural schools not too far from Whitewater. Out of this original class of one hundred- two students, twenty-one withdrew and are not attending any other college; eight men are now in military service; three of the girls are in nursest training at various insti- 'tutions. The man-power shortage didntt miss the sophomore class, as the number of fellows was merely three compared to seventy-one girls. The girls were in divided curriculums; rural, six; academic, fourteen; elementary, fourteen; and commercial, thirty-seven. The three men were enrolled in the commercial course. The sophomores had a successful year un- der the efficient leadership of J ackie J oosten of Rudolph, with the able assistance of Patri- cia Dietzler from Kimberly as vice-president. The finances as well as the records were kept by Phyllis Martinson from Beloit. Two members were elected to represent the class on two of the schools executory committees; Helen Neer from Cable was on the Convoca- tion Committee, and Leona Tiller from Blue River was on the Student Welfare Commit- tee. At a special meeting of the class, Mr. Clay J . Daggett was elected to hold the posi- tion of sponsor. Most of the members of the class were ac- tive in extra-curricular activities. Some re- ceived various campus honors throughout the year. Upper Left: Upper Right: Adams, Coleman, Dobbs, Colwill, Dabareiner, Douglas, Collings, Braunschweig, Chamberlain, Backes. Allen, Arndt.

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 the music. 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 FRESHMEN Sievers, Ryan 34 of the Convocation Committee; and Win- fried Hensel, member of the Student Wel- fare Committee. 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 studying. 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 many girls. 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.

ACADEMIC CLUB 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- ment. 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 served. 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 armed forces. COMMERCIAL CLUB 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, fxi; s 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 campus. 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 coming events. 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 66 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. ALPHA CLUB 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 activities. 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 school students. 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 education. It is true that the training of future rural students could be in no better hands than those of the present Alpha members. PRIMARY CLUB 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 67 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 Raufman, treasurer. 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. w I I a s 'Ql j'uoq . u l K Again this year the Council took care of the school's Lost and Found department, sold school supplies, and twice daily posted the .A.0.8.W 7., Ill 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- dent. lNTER-SORORITY COUNCIL 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. 68 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 sponsor. 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- mg. 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 house. 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 event. 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 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- ditional colors. 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 volleyball team. 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 summer. 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. 72 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. 73 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" X X 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 75 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 gathering. 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- man. 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- Wilma Ann Gaveras, Saunders, keeper of the grades. The chapter also wishes to express thanks for the sponsorship of Miss Marie S. Benson. retary; treasurer; 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 2? EB El w ---- as guests. A program and social hour fol- lowed the business meeting. Piano selec- tions and a reading composed the program. One of Miss Leileris wonderful lunches was served, bringing a pleasant evening to a close. 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- gical dressings. Some of the members were given respon- sibilities in the numerous school activities and organizations. Reigning as class oilicers were Mae Alice English, junior president, and Patricia Dietzler, sophomore vice-presi- dent. Beverly Sawyer, president of Primary Club; Mary Lou Hinkley, president of Treble Clef; Mary Dickerman, president of College Band and vice-president of Primary Club; and Marjorie Hall, president of the Women's Athletic Association guided their groups through successful semesters. Marge Hall was the efiicient business manager of the Minneiska. 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. 76 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 hour. 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- sor. 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- 77 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- dition. 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 danceland. 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 78 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 Mahnke. 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 service. All Phi Chis have come to know and ad- 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 plays. 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- pian. 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 organization. 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 the fraternity. 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 the funds. 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 mester. 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. Faculty members of Kappa Delta Pi in- clude Mrs. Henrietta Enger and Mr. Clay Daggett. Pl OMEGA PI Since the initiation of four new members -Mildred Duff, Phyllis Hatfield, Ruth Mc- Farlane, and Agnes Peterson-this honorary fraternity now has an active membership of eighteen. Under the sponsorship of Mr. P. A. Carl- son, a charter member, officers with the fol- lowing titles were elected: Helene Holmes, president; Rose Jankovic, vice-president; Joyce Trindal, treasurer; and Hilde Bartell, secretary. The Sunday following the Fall Festival found the Pi Omega Pi members pledging and initiating an oif-campus student, Hen- rietta Tiller. For something unusual the group had a theater party December 9. They attended a movie, and later gathered at the Goal Post for refreshments. 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- 80 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- ter members. FORENSICS 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, and dance. 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 the squad. 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- vember 7. 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 this invitation. 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 of the Whitewater Federation of Womenis Clubs. 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 these stamps. 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 Eta Theta. A formal dinner was held in February with valentine decorations. Six girls pre- pared the dinner. THESPIAN 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 very profitable. 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 subjects. 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. a 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 proper recognition. Various parties and social functions filled the rest of the organizations time. Thespian considered 1944-45 a very full and successful year. BAND 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- tion. 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 games. 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 members. Oiiicers for the band were: Mary Dicker- man, president; Lucile Miller, vice-president; Phyllis Chamberlain, secretary and treas- urer; and Mea Tennis, librarian, ORCHESTRA From the doors of the college auditorium each Tuesday morning during the third hour, which is the regular practice hour for the College Orchestra, fioat the lovely strains of music. Of course, sometimes those strains of 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 symphony. Unfortunately this year, the college stu- dent body has not had the opportunity of 83 hearing the orchestra perform frequently. The group did appear on several of the all- school convocations held during the second semester. 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. A CAPPELLA 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- L 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- rounding area. 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 Done? During the second semester the choir held one of its social meetings in the form of a banquet. Practices were held every Tuesday and Thursday during the eighth hour in the Col- lege Auditorium. The choir was directed by Mr. Frederick Schmidt, and due to his talent and enthusiasm, the choir again enjoyed a successful year. Oiiicers were Kathleen Rogers, president; Betty Gluch, vice-president; Helen Neer, secretary; Gloria Mukansky, treasurer; and Helen Artz, librarian. TREBLE CLEF 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 own enjoyment. 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. ROYAL PURPLE 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 and discussion. 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 membership. 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 Milwaukee. 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 manager. 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 were made. MINNEISKA 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 Steiber. The co-sport editors were Betty Gluch and Ralph Lenz. Serving on the copy and proof reading staff were Ethel Drews, Ann Gaveras, Doro- thy Oberg, Mary Kyle, Carol Kalb, and Betty Hanley. Mr. Schwalbachls assistants on the photog- raphy staff were Ruth McFarlane and Ver- non Herdendorf. 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 and advisor. 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- gaining the coveted All-American rating. Informal pictures have come back into their own in this year's book and the photog- rapher has tried to get action shots with the flash camera. This was handicapped by the limitation of film, however. The photog- raphers were kept busy taking pictures and then spent numerous evenings in the Min- neiska dark room developing negatives and prints. , Ordinarily the editor, business manager, and the advisor take time off from their du- ties to attend the Associated Collegiate Press Convention, but due to the circumstances, the conventions have been postponed for the duration. The staE was aided with final copy reading by two members of the Minneiska Board, Miss Helen Knosker and Miss Ruth Ryburn. At the close of the year, the Minneiska staif held a formal banquet. At this last . 1,; meeting of the group, the result of their labor was revealed when the 1945 Minne- iskas were unpacked. Each staff member's book had his or her name engraved in gold on the cover. Also at the banquet, next yearls staff was revealed. All staff members hope that this book has served its purpose well-that of presenting a true picture of your college life. Roger Trost, a sophomore from Burlington, and his trombone are truly inseparable. He has soloed at many school events and is an ardent member of the band. During summer vacations, Roger has traveled with various orches- tras. At the piano, he is an ac- complished player of "Boogie Woogieh. 87 A face familiar to most of the W. S. T. C. students is that of. Laura Derosier, the diligent president of Mercier this year. She also had charge of the text book library, which is a chore in itself. Laura held the important position of business manager of the Royal Purple, and proved efficient in the handling of its finances. J ohn Garstecki's chief respon- sibility at college this year was during first semester as editor of the Royal Purple. John is a senior from Green Bay. During hlS sophomore year he was presi- dent of his class and last year was president of Mercier. Jan and Joyce Trindal are in- deed well known to all students in Whitewater. They are out- standing in athletics as well as in other fields. This year they i led their basketball team into the position of tournament cham- pion. Joyce was president of W. S. G. A. this year, while last year Jan served as W. A. A. president. Joe Werner, one of the veter- ans attending W. S. T. 0., comes from Appleton. As a freshman, Joe made a highly acceptable name for himself. He was an active member of Thespian, and was very efficient in lighting and stage work. Joe was always pleasant and ready to cooperate even when it came to disman- tling stage settings. Being a native of the Hawai- ian Islands, Winogene Hasse, had something unusual to offer in the line of entertainment. "Wino'w was known for her realistic Ha- waiian dances-grass skirt and all. She was a senior at W.S.T.C. this year, and her plans now are to return to her home in Hawaii sometime in the near future. The Alpha Sigma Trio, com- posed of Kay Campbell, Kassie Rogers, and J eanne Olsen, made numerous appearances this year. The girls did much of their own arranging, but Mr. Schmidt gave his aid on a few occasions. The Trio, which spent time perfect- ing its blending, sang at various events, such as the Phi Chi Dance and the Fall Festival. Its hnal appearance was at the senior banquet in January since Kay Campbell was a mid-year grad- uate. Jackie Gay iilled the va- cancy second semester. Iris Allen, an attractive and ambitious freshman from Beaver Dam, gained recognition by her forensic work and her vocal solos. She has sung on many assembly programs and at va- rious dances. As a part of the all-school Christmas program, Iris sang "And There Were Shepherds? 90 W. A. A. Due to the limitations of the times, the Women's Athletic Association did its part in furthering athletics on W. S. T. C.'s campus. Miss Florence Goodhue again sponsored the group. Marjorie Hall, commercial junior, one of the outstanding woman athletes of W. S. T. C. was president. Ann Gaveras, a com- mercial senior who captained the girls hockey team, was vice-president. Another an. 33V. W K: star hockey player, Verna Allen, commercial sophomore, held the position of secretary. Ethel Drews, a commercial senior, did her part as treasurer. Membership this year increased over last year. The roll call contained the names of ninety active members. Meetings were held twice a month, on Monday evenings, in the high school as- sembly. After the business meeting, basket- ball, volleyball, or swimming were often of- fered for entertainment. 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- propriate clothes, explained the various 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. On October 14, W. A. A. participated in a Play Day held at Milwaukee Downer Col- lege. Whitewater played Ripon, Beloit, and Carroll, winning all three games. W. A. A. members who played were: Verna Allen, Betty Dabareiner, Helen Eggert, Ann Gav- eras, Marjorie Hall, Lois Hansen, Gertrude and Marie Helms, Mitzi Jack, Eleanor Mc- Quade, Nancy Strodel, and Helen Watson. Whitewater girls attended the tea given for all the participants. W. A. A. was very active during the Fall Festival week-end. Doing their part to make 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 prize was given to Betty Gluch and Jackie Joosten as an old-time farm couple. Santa Claus came and distributed gifts to every- one. Christmas carols were sung, games were played, and refreshments served. W. A. A. was the sponsor of the basketball tournament held among the sororities and a special team of W. A. A. members. Lorraine Hackl captained the W. A. A. team. Winners of the tournament were the Delta Sigmas, who received the traveling trophy. The highlight of W. A. A3s year was on March 9 when they again were sponsors of Stunt Night. The various organizations came through in grand style with very clever stunts. ; "X'U'u'ir 3 J :mmu-u LLL As customary, a camping trip was held in the spring at Lake Ripley.

Coach Fred Trewyn did double duty by coaching the College High and the Quakers. The Cagers felt the season well worthwhile, it resulted in eight defeats and one victory. A brief summary follows: W. S. T. C-42 J ANESNILLE PARKER FUSES-35 December 14, was the Quakers first game. The Quakers were a trifle nervous at the out- set, but a bucket by ttTinyti Lenz broke the ice.

With 10 seconds left to go, Parker had the ball under the Quaker basket, and then Gil- lespie, of J anesville, threw the ball the length of the floor. Before the Quakers could bring it back up court, the game ended. W. S. T. C.-17 GIBB MACHINE TOOL-35 The Quakers were not up to par when they played the Gibb Machine Quintet of Dela- van.

IQeBELOIT COLLEGE 42 Ringing down the curtain on the 1945 war- time season, our Quakers met defeat again at the hands of Beloit, in Hamilton Gym, Tues- day, February 27, 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 teams. 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. 93 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 Gym. 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- m a gig 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. SCROOBY 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. WESLEY Meeting weekly at the Methodist Church, Wesley Foundation, led by President Doro- thy Oberg, has completed a year of varied activities. The group, sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. George Winsor, met every Tuesday evening with the exception of the first week in each month, when the meeting was held on Sunday evening. This year the attend- ance at the weekly meetings increased one hundred per cent. Activities of the year were opened with a Get-Acquainted Party. The playing of games was under the direction of the social chair- man, Vivian Broman, who also presided at other social meetings. The hike to ttPop" Warner,s Cabin was favored by beautiful autumnal weather. A movie ttArmy Chap- lain" showing actual battle scenes was pre- sented. One of the highlights of the year was the inter-denominational supper at which Wes- ley played host to the other religious organi- zations on the campus. About one hundred students attended and were greatly inter- ested in the talk given by Mr. William V. Kelley, Secretary of the Milwaukee Urban League. The annual sale of Christmas cards featur- ing the Pescheret etching of the college tower 94 was held again this year. The Reverend Mr. Kell was one of the several outside speakers presented at various meetings throughout the year. Other activities of the group included a Halloween party, Christmas caroling, Val- entineis Day party, cost suppers, freshman night, amateur night, senior night, and the spring picnic. In addition to President Oberg, other offi- cers were J ane Edwards, vice-president, and Eleanor Koehler, secretary-treasurer. Re- sponsibility for all programs rested upon the shoulders of Edna Lau and Beatrice Rich- ards. Music was planned for each meeting by Bill Uglow. Food chairmen were Gwen Turnell and Hope Cooley. The offices of dramatic chairman and membership chair- man were held by Elaine Douglas and Jean Amos, respectively. Lit Under the direction of President Agnes Peterson, Vice-president Annabelle Hoessel, Secretary-Treasurer Virginia Dobbs, Royal Purple Reporter Mary Anna McKinney, Scrapbook Keeper June Engelke, Sponsors, Miss Marie Benson and Rev. I. Suby, L. S. A. has taken an active part in college life and activities. Rev. Suby is the pastor of the First English Lutheran Church. There were many highlights during the year. A picnic at the city park in September opened the years activities. A successful candy sale was held October 25. All varie- 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. The main event of the year was a confer- ence at the Hub Region Convention held at Augustana College, Rock Island, III. This conference was attended by Agnes Peterson, Annabelle Hoessel, Hazel Peterson, Virginia Dobbs, and Rev. Suby. L$t$ Under the leadership of President Helen Haesler, the Lutheran Synodical Conference Students enjoyed a busy year of work and play. The meetings were held at St. Johns Lutheran Church on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. One meeting of the month was devoted to the discussion of topics centered around interests lying directly or indirectly within the field of religion. The other bi-monthly meeting was a social gath- ering. The highlights of the year in the social field were: several bowling parties, an October picnic at Warner,s cabin, an annual Christ- mas party, and an old-fashioned popcorn party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. V. C. Graham. 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 95 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 of Royal Purple reporter. During the first semester, due to the absence of Ludella Al- 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 members. Meeting on the first and third Tuesdays of every month, Mercier members took part in group and panel discussions on a variety of topics. Father F. C. Berry served as spiritual advisor to the members and did much to stimulate the growth of the organization. Practical matters were capably handled 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 meetings was kept by Catherine Graham, sec- retary; and Antonia Sevenich, treasurer, kept a record of the assets and liabilities of the group. Mrs. Mary Fricker was the spon- sor of Mercier. Taking an active part in the all-school Fall Festival celebration held in mid-November, Mercier members sponsored their annual Communion Supper. The supper, which was prepared and served by the members under the chairmanship of Rose Jankovic, was shared at Bassett House. The group had at- 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. Under the leadership of the student chair- men, members of Mercier participated in MERCER round table discussions on a variety of sub- jects. Mary McGrath led a panel which I analyzed the problem of "Religion in Rus- T siat, at one of the first meetings. Racial prej- ' udice was the next topic for consideration and was led by Vivian Heidmann, assisted by i Irene Foelker, Sally Kettenhofen, and Arlyne i Stieber. At the November meeting, Father Berry talked about the general theme of tiEducationP Another meeting was devoted to an informal quiz program on questions concerning religious problems of the church. All the members participated in this meet- mg. The regular gatherings of Mercier were dispensed with during Lent so that members might attend the services at the church. The first Friday of every month was set aside for communion day. Mercier was active in campus activities as in previous years. Although forced to fore- go the traditional Winter Formal because of wartime conditions, the group planned a Snow Festival to which the entire student body was invited. Mercier, in accordance with the general plan of the various religious organizations on the campus, joined in the inter-denominational informal get-to-gethers. A welfare committee consisting of Leona Tiller, Catherine Graham, and Tom Mair was active throughout the year in sending mes- sages of cheer to members who were ill. changes in the oHice personnel. The vice- president elected to replace Kathryn Camp- bell, who graduated, was Rose Jankovic. Georgia Vannie was chosen as Royal Purple reporter, and Catherine Graham was the The second semester brought several scrapbook keeper. i 96 s E N I L E D I S Breakfast time finds the Goal Post jammed with students preparing for a day at school.

This year it has changed ownership, and now Sadie J ones and Henry Banker are the competent and cheerful individuals behind the counter. Ben and Ev McCauley, former owners, are now making their home in the West. A fall festivity' setting was the theme of the all- school party sponsored by Phi Chi Epsilon on October 20 in Hamilton gymnasium. Claire Vineyts orchestra furnished the music. The entrance had a tunnel ef- fect and was engulfed with a bank of cornstalks. Re- freshments of doughnuts and cider were served by professional waiters. Here we see Jackie Joosten and Rudy Boes behind the re- freshment bar. Around the gym were various tables on which were lighted jack-o- lanterns. 99 General chairman of the dance was Jack Johnson, a Phi Chi pledge from Racine. Here is Jack as he passed a tray of dough- nuts to ttBtt Burkitt and HWhiteyH Mittel- steadt. Dixie Sayre, Iris Allen, and the Alpha Sigma trio performed during inter- mission.

The eve- ning was spent in dancing, singing carols, and indulg- ing in a lunch of chocolate milk and cupcakes. Then Santa Claus arrived very unexpectedly and presented all the girls as well as Miss Goodhue and Miss Moser with gifts. The girls were dressed in a large variety of costumes, and the judges had a dichult time awarding the prizes. However, after much deliberation, they awarded first prize to the couple at our left, Leona Tiller and Betty Olson. Second prize was given to Jackie Joosten and Betty Gluch, who were dressed as a farm couple of years ago. 101 Thursday morning, before the game. the Quakers were honored at a pep rally. Mar- jorie Hall was chairman, and the yells were led by the cheerleaders: Dorothy Carlson, Helyne Mitchell, and Betty Raufman. Coach Trewyn gave a short talk and then intro- duced the members of the team. The col- lege band furnished the music. 102 Once again W. S. T. C. had college basketball, ap- proximating that of pre- war days, much to the joy of all concerned. After confusion and turmoil, a basketball squad, composed largely of veterans, was formed. Mr. Fred Trewyn of the College High School undertook the duties of coach, While Rudy Boes acted as manager. The picture at our left was taken at the first game of the year, December 14, which was with a Janes- ville team. The final score was 45-42, with W. S. T. C. as victor.

Miss Iris Allen sang a solo, "And There Were Shepherds". The high school choir, col- lege choir, and band com- bined to present ttWondrous Things the Lord Hath Done, by Christiansen. Mr. Deane Coburne was guest soloist. The appropriate stage setting was the result of the efforts of high school students under the direc- tion of Mr. J. A. Schwal- bach. 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? 103 Stunt Night, annual event sponsored by W. A.

They are: Pauline Carlson and Floy Ann Schimmel, clarinet; Delorus Erickson, piano; Ed Craft, saxophone; Fred Gale, trom- bone; Barbara Bulkley, fiute; and Beverly Lude- man, voice. A tour of surrounding rural schools was made by this group of students. The purpose of the tour was to promote good relations toward the High School. Delorus Erickson was featured at the piano as a part of a swing trio at the winter concert presented by the College Band. Four of these students: Pauline Carlson, Bar- bara Bulkley, Floy Schimmel, and Fred Gale, participated in a mass band concert presented at the City High School January 31. This concert was under the direction of Dr. Frank Simon, di- rector of the band department of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. 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.

Pauline Carlson portrayed the harrassed Betty, worrying over unpayable bills, and J ohnny Sinks, David, the young man who got tired of waiting. Chester played by Jim Messner was allergic to almost everything, including work. Barbara Coe as Toodles, was on a banana and milk diet with the hopes of attracting Chesterts attention. Fred Gale was Jeff, who loved photography; and a wonderful pal was Elaine Lowery as Ginny, who didntt like playing second flddle to a dream girl. Floy Schimmel made a beautiful southern gal in the part of Sally Lou, and Betty Nelson as Minerva was characterized by her giggle. Bar- bara Zahl as Aunt Selina, Gene Goeglein as Owen, Darold Roach as timid Mr. Atkins, and Ed Craft as the taxi driver, OtToole, completed the cast. Miss Ruth Ryburn directed the play.

Minneiska Standing: Zahl, Sinks, Noble Seated: Bumbalek, Wiemer, Culver TRUMPETER The recently established College High paper, itThe Trumpeterii began its second year of pub- lication with Helen Hinds as editor. Other staff members were Evelyn Granzow, associate editor; Janet Bumbalek, assistant editor; Barbara Coe, makeup editor; Pauline Carlson, Barbara Zahl, and Elaine Lowery, feature writers; David Roach and Ken Leiting, sport reporters; Merrybelle Cooper, circulation manager; and additional re- porters. i A new idea, that of a contributorts box through which student opinion might be expressed, was introduced. ' During the first semester there were several special issues, including one for the annual open- house and another welcoming alumni to the homecoming game and dance. The annual uSock Hop" was sponsored by the Trumpeter staff this year. Miss Ruth Ryburn, the English teacher, super- vised the publication. MINNEISKA Joyce Wiemer, editor of the High School Minneiska, and Janet Bumbalek, assistant editor, seemed to have difiiculty getting articles in on time. Delores Culver was business manager. The amount of work for her to do seemed amazingly large at first. Floy Ann Schimmel and Pauline Carlson contributed toward the success of the book with their art work. The rest of the staff consisted of one junior, John Sinks, as assistant business manager, and two sophomores, Janet Noble and Barbara Zahl. This group, although small in number, learned that putting out a yearbook isnt as simple as it sounds. Although there were many worries and headaches for all involved, the staE is proud of the part it had in making the 1945 Minneiska possible. Trumpeter Standing: Ritzema, Lemke.

CHEERLEADERS nClmon, kids, lets give a big yell for the teamP So the pep meetings at College High started, As the first project of the year, the organiza- tion undertook the annual homecoming dance. Decorations consisted of multi-colored pennants, silhouettes of the players on a gold background, and a mural around Hamilton Gym, portrayed the crowd at a College High football game. G. A. A. members participated in volleyball and basketball games. The girls raised money for the organization by serving two dinners to the Rock Valley League of coaches and principals. They also held a bake sale. . These activities together with a theatre party, mixer, and a party held at Miss Moserls rounded out a year of jolly times for G. A. A. members. Cheerleaders led by four very attractive and peppy cheer- leaders. Head cheerleader this year was senior ttBob- bie" Coe, who will he succeeded next year by Bonnie Traxler. Floy Ann Schimmel, freshman, and "Natll Gehri, sophomore and a veteran of last year, completed the quartet. The cheerleaders, uniforms were like those of last year-short, gold, pleated skirts and purple letter sweaters. A special cheerleaderls emblem, designed by Mr. Schwalbach, took the place of a letter on the pocket. The cheerleaders managed to be with the team at most of the out-of-town games.

While the six-man game was played last year, eleven-man football came into its own this season. Under the new coach, Mr. Fred Trewyn, a for- mer graduate of W. S. T. C., the Purgolders won five games, two with the Fort 2B2 squad, two with the Jefferson 2B" squad, and one with Cambridge. The last game of the season was lost to Milton Union. The Cambridge game was considered by many to have been the best game of the season, with College High scoring in the last minute to Win, team.

Some of the academic highlights in their school year were participation in the Teachersy Conven- tion in Milwaukee, the study of Australia under Mrs. Fischer, and the original creation of a mural on tropical tish for the science room. Social times revolved about initiation of another grade, an enthusiastic basketball team, and fun while learning to square dance under Mr. Graham. Seventh Grade Black, Congdon, Holford, Maasz, Boelkow, Lander, Miller Houghton, Leiting, Hanson, Mundinger, Marshall, Stacy, Heth, Kneivin Blodgett, Rutoskib Hoad, Stacey, Evans, Larkin, Schoepoerster SEVENTH GRADE 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. V $31!ch ; V emmm: .

JUNIOR HIGH A CAPPEllA The Junior High Choir, under the capable di- rection of Mr. F. A. Schmidt, is composed of over sixty voices. It is truly amazing the results that are to be heard from this talented group- of children. The group rehearsed twice weekly, on Monday and Wednesday, the eighth hours. Right before Christmas, the group was especially busy pre- paring for their part in the all-school Christmas program, which took place December 18 in the college auditorium. The choir sang the follow- ing numbers, based upon the theme, ttChristmas Carols of Other Countriesih ttPeace To All", "The Holy Season", ttKyrie Eleisontt, and uThe Christ- mas Bells? JUNIOR HIGH COUNCIL The Junior High Student Council was very busy this year under the direction of its president, James Mitchell, and Mr. George Winsor, sponsor. A good part of the counciPs time was spent in tabulating merit points for the various extra- curricular activities. 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- ball games were scheduled for the Junior Highiers. Junior High A Cappella Top Row: Mr. Schmidt.

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. JUNIOR HIGH TRAFFIC COURT JUNIOR HIGH NEWSPAPER STAFF Upper Left: Second Graders gather around their fireplace. Lower Left: Santa Claus visits fifth grade. The elementary grades have been espe- cially active this year in various programs stressing citizenship, the world today, and general living. The kindergarten, under Miss Koelling, had an enrollment of thirty-two this year. A see-saw was a new addition to the room. In the fall of the year, the children brought their various pets to school. At Christmas time they decorated a tree with ornaments of their own making. Before the holidays, they presented a program for their parents. In January they studied a unit on winter sports and later one on health. Birthday parties were held in turn for each child. Mrs. Quinn and her first graders trudged to the Marshall farm one noon in October. This was the culmination of a social studies unit on ttThe Farm? Their next venture was the keeping of a grocery store in one corner of their room. This year new tables were purchased for the first graders. Good citizenship has been stressed in the second grade this past school year under Miss Upper Right: Primary Clubis Christmas Tea. Lower Right: Kindergartners at a new game. TRAINING SC Madden. They have learned what they can do to keep Whitewater the healthy and at- tractive city that it is. They have helped the war effort through the conservation of food, clothing, and school supplies. The 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. Upper Left: Third graders look over their own books. Lower Left: First graders smile fer the camera man. :OL PROJECTS This year through the use of books, pic- tures, maps, the radio, and movies, the fourth 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 were written by the children. The room dec- orations portrayed the lives, habits, and customs of people, animals and natural phe- nomena of these far-away lands. In the fall Mrs. Engeris fifth grade enter- tained their mothers with a humorous play, itBartholomew Cubbins". The children, un- der Mrs. Fricker and student teachers, pre- pared and served a Halloween luncheon. The group, trained by a student teacher, did some choral speaking in the fall, using two Halloweien poems for their selections. At Christmas time, they dramatized iiChristmas Eve in the Toyshopi, for the first and second graders. In science the children learned to do simple experiments. At the close of the Upper Right: Fourth grade begins long division. Lower Right: Sixth graders at work on one of their murals. x unit they visited the chemistry laboratory 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- morrow. 1945 BOOSTERS BAYERS JEWELRY AND GIFT SHOP Watch and Jewelry Repairing CENTURY SALES 8: SERVICE Typewriters-School and Office Supplies CHAMBERLAINS Merfs Clothing and Shoes COLLEGE GRILL Dinners Lunches Fountain Service THE COLLEGE SHOP Dresses and Sportswear ART CUMMINGS 6 Pontiac 8 GMC Trucks CUMMINGS 8c HICKEY Furniture and Funeral Service H.
