OING? Why, of course Itm going. Such was the feeling of the members of
the oldest men,s organization in the Teachers College in regard to the meet-
ings which were held every other Thursday during the school year. With an active
membership that exceeded any of previous years, according to Professor A. N.
Johnson, faculty advisor of the Agrifallian Literary Society, the club has shown
unusual progress throughout the year, and its members have become innoculated
With a greater spirit of loyalty and love for the organization than has ever before
The omcers are chosen on their merit as good, active, livewire Agrifallians,
and are elected twice a year. For the first ternfs staif Herbert Chapman Was
president, Martin Abrahamsen, vice president, Jesse Smith, secretary, and Gaylord
Mullendore, treasurer. The second term, Martin Abrahamsen was chosen president,
Gaylord Mullendore, vice president, Allan Weber, secretary, and Edwin Howard,
treasurer. These men are in no small degree responsible for the successful year
the society has enjoyed.

We were especially interested in tLittle Europe in Our Own Country" and
the "United States Arsenal? John Davison gave us some excellent points on
school loyalty. Marshal Norseng spoke on the sidelights of the Smith-Hoover
campaign. Mr. Malott gave a very instructive talk on the immortality of our
race. Mr. Hunt talked on loyalty to organizations. He gave us many new ideas
on the subject. Miss Thomas took us with her, in imagination, to see the beauties
of Yellowstone National Park.
Miss Kelley and Mr. Mac Namara are two of the excellent soloists who have
entertained us. We must not forget our humorist, ftEddy" Phalen, who was al-
ways willing to entertain us.
One of the outstanding social events that the Newman Club sponsored during
the school year was a mixer at the beginning of the first term. It was held to
enable our new members to get acquainted. Another outstanding event was a
Christmas party given by Father Fassbender in the basement of St. Bridgefs
We believe it is through the hearty cooperation of our advisor, Mr. Junkman,
and the active members of the association that this organization has been a success.
Any Catholic students contemplating attendance at the River Falls State
Teachers Colleges in the future will receive a Warm welcome by the Newman Club.

One of the outstanding steps taken by the club this year was the decision made
by the organization that a standard design for rings and pins, representative of
the Agrifallian Society, should be selected. By virtue of this decision the club
members now present: for inspection a ring or pin which tells to everyone,
both in the school and those who have graduated and are now out in the teaching
field, that the wearer is a loyal member of the Society.
An arrangement of programs of a somewhat novel nature was planned by the
members of the teaching staff in the agricultural department. By means of this
system committees composed entirely of students with an upperclassman as chair-
man were selected and dated to stage a program at one of the regular meetings
of the club. Outside of a little advice from the instructors of the department, the
programs were arranged entirely by the students. Under this system the student was
compelled to learn how to arrange a program and how to stage one. He received some
valuable training in public speaking and parliamentary law. Knowledge in regard to
subjects which are closely related to agriculture, but are lightly touched upon in
the class room was procured, so that the student graduating from the college might
have an education that was broad enough and full enough to fit him for the hardest
teaching work offered to a college graduate, that of a teacher in the Smith-Hughes
schools of the state and country at large.
