Several weeks were spent in interesting the freshmen girls through various means, such as Big Sister Movements, a tea for all freshmen, and meetings devoted to the theme of friendship. The new members were definitely taken in at a Candlelight Service. One hundred girls joined the organ- ization, and took the pledgehttTo lead a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God." Two of the new cabinet members had attended the Geneva ConferenceeAnna May Vold and Mildred Thomson. In order to be better prepared for the yearts work the cabinet attended a Cabinet Training Course at Stout College in Menomonie. Miss Julia Mae Hamilton, traveling secretary for this district, visited River Falls following the meeting at Menomonie. As a new feature of the work the cabinet decided to spend part of their time in the study of some good book. Lewis Browne's, 'tThis Believing Worldf Was selected. Mrs. Justin Williams became the discussion leader. The only time avail- able for most of the busy cabinet members was Thursday afternoon from four thirty until six thirty. Thursday Cabinet Suppers thus became an outstanding feature of the program. One Hundred Sixty-Eight

Haunschild, Brooks, Morton, Thomas, Grimm, Zorn Kelly, McLaughlin, Miss Hathorn, Faculty Adviser, White, King THE STUDENT SOCIAL COMMITTEE Gnome WHITE - - President RUDOLPH PRUCHA - Vice President PAULINE MCLAUGHLIN Secretary FRED WANDREY - - Treasurer MISS HATHOBN - . - Advisor HE Stuaent Social Committee is an organization composed of three representa- tives from each class with Miss Hathorn as advisor, whose purpose is to sponsor the all-school social activities of the student body. Soon after the members of the committee were chosen, they met and elected the officers who served throughout the year. The biggest social function of the year, which the social committee labored to make a success, was the Homecoming Ball. Nor were their efforts in vain, for a record breaking crowd of old grads and students were present at the dance. Be- sides this one special dance, the Social Committee has given a matinee dance almost every week. At each matinee dance one hour was set aside for the teaching of be- ginners to dance. It was through the efforts of the Committee that the students had the oppor- tunity of enjoying several readings, given before the general assembly, by Mr. John Seaman Garns of the McPhail School of Music. The Committee for several winters has provided the school with a skating rink on the old athletic field. Again this year action was taken to put the rink in shape, but lack of interest among the students, and the weather prohibited the development of the project. It is the hope of the Student Social Committee to help finance and in this way make possible the bringing of the Mixed Chorus from the University of Minnesota to our campus sometime in May as a special entertainment for the students. Throughout the year the Committee has endeavored to carry out in the line of social functions and activities the wishes and sentiment of the group they represent -the student body.

During the first part of the year many of the programs were for freshmen. Several joint meetings with the Y. M. C. A. resulted in a better understanding of the closely related aims. Community relations and world fellowship were discussed, and lecturers from Minneapolis discussed social service work. The second part of the work was devoted to a close study of personality. Be- ginning with exterior things like etiquette, clothes, leading into discussions of books, men and women relations, and ending with topics like ttFinding Myself," the series was enjoyed by most of the girls of the school. Two assembly programs put on at Christmas and Easter with the help of the Y. M. C. A. were very appropriate and impressive. The financial program of the Association has been one of expansion. To begin with, fifty dollars was pledged to the National Council, part to be for the World Student Christian Federation, and part for work at home. The various social ob- ligations, plus the sum needed for Geneva delegates, brought the total budget to about two hundred dollars. . To begin to raise the necessary amount, the pledges of individual members were called for. Various committees worked constantly at candy and sandwich sales. The second annual Dime Day was a big success. At the end of the year every obligatiori was fulfilled. Socially, the highlight of the program was the Party of the Nations, 3 national masquerade held early in the year. The Christmas party for the Social Room was sponsored by the Y. W. C. A. Because of its varied activities and program, the Y. W. C. A. appeals to most of the girls of the campus and every year more mem- bers take an active part in some phase of the work. It is hoped that each year its sphere of influence may widen until in the end it helps every girl. One Hundred Sixty-Nine
