THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN
HE Y. W. C. A. on the campus is a branch of the national Y. W. C. A.
The aim of this organization is very well expressed in the purpose which is
as follows: We, the members of the Young Wornen's Christian Association,
unite in the desire to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge
of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people.
In this task we seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him.
The governing body of the Y. W. C. A. is the cabinet with Miss Irma
Hathorn as its adviser. The cabinet is organized in committee groups, the pur-
pose of the committees as a whole being to fulfill the needs of every girl on the
campus, in other Words, striving for individual participation.
The Y. W. C. A. works continuously throughout the entire year. Each
Monday night is set aside as "Y" night. On these evenings varied programs are
presented. Some of the most outstanding programs of the past year were the
Candlelight Service, Amateur Night, and various musical and discussion hours.
A few meetings were given over to outside speakers.
On special occasions, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, joint worship
services with the Y. M. C. A. were held in the auditorium. These programs
were especially outstanding. At the Christmas program the play, "Peace, I Give
Unto You," was presented, and at Easter the play, "The Things That Are
Caesar's," was given.
During the month of February we held four meetings with the Y. M. C. A.
These discussions were on the subjects, "What are we in college for?", "Is
Campus popularity worth seeking?", and "Social relations between men and
women." The fourth meeting was a large group meeting at which Ben Schmoker,
Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at the University of Minnesota, was the guest
In the fall the Y. W. C. A. jointly with the Y. M. C. A. put on a freshman
mixer which was held during the first week of school. The Y. W. C. A. also
promotes the Campus Sister Movement, which is an upper classman adopting a
freshman girl and assisting her in the difHcult process of becoming acquainted
with the school and college life in general. Sometime during the irst week the
"Y" girls have a tea at which time the older girls bring their little sisters.
Homecoming, one of the biggest times of the entire year, found the Y. W.
C. A. with a lloat in the parade and a luncheon for present and past members.
The luncheon is outstanding in that it gives girls a chance to really see old
friends and feel that they are still a part of the organization of the "Y."
Early in the spring is the annual Puff-Pant Prom which is the biggest social
event of the "Y" year. It is a prom, yes! but only girls may participate. Men are
strictly excluded. Y
During the year are two conferences of great interest to the One is at
Lake Independence, Minnesota, in the spring. At this conference schools in the
Minnesota-Northern Wisconsin area are represented. The other is our summer
conference at Lake 'Geneva in the southern part of Wisconsin. This is a longer,
more important conference at which Y. W. C. A. members from nine states are
represented. This is the outstanding conference for this region. Here are speakers
of interest: here plans are gathered and formulated for another year's work:
here we may participate in recreational as well as mental and spiritual activities.
Through this conference we may hope to bring back to our campus some of the
fire and enthusiasm of what we call the "Geneva Spirit."

THE HONOR SOCIETY
T the end of every term a list of the people who have made at least two and
one-half honor points for each credit hour is published in the Student Voice.
These people were honored, in the early days of the school, at a tea given them
by the faculty. Later they entertained the faculty at a few teas, thus becoming a
loosely organized group for the purpose of entertainment. The next step was
in the direction of meetings two or three times a year, At these meetings they
listened to some outside speaker.
Today the Honor Society is purely a social organization, endeavoring to give
its members a few hours of recreation. It is now a regular organization with
oflicers, faculty adviser, and regular scheduled monthly meetings.
This year the Honor Society presented a stunt at the annual Homecoming.
It was a dramatization of the Martins and the Coys changed to the Falcons and
This season has been especially noteworthy for its excellent entertainment.
Chairmen from among the members have been chosen by the president. These
chairmen took charge of the various meetings by planning the entertainment for
the evenings. Among the chairmen were Mary Junkman, Dorothy Arnquist,
Phyllis Soderstrom, Russell Gettinger, Kenneth Wall, and Mary Katherine
The first party of the year was a Bunco party held in the social room. lt
proved to be a successful way of starting a season of fun. It was followed the
next month by a card party, also in the social room. Another meeting took the
form of a sleigh-ride, after which refreshments were served. Later another party
was held at which the members had a choice of skating on the college rink or
playing cards in the s.ocial room. In the spring a progressive game party was held
in the Men's Union. The games consisted of indoor croquet, indoor horseshoe,
ping pong, and other indoor games. Another meeting was a scavenger hunt after
which members met to elect officers for the next year. The last meeting of the
year was a picnic. A large number attended, thus ending a year of excellent
The Honor Society has as an emblem a small silver R pin, which each member
is entitled to wear after having had his name on the Honor Roll for one term.
If, at the completion of a course, he has earned two and one-fourth honor points
for each credit hour and has no grade less than C, he is entitled to a gold R.
Honorable mention may be acquired by having had no grade less than C and
having earned at least two honor points per credit hour during attendance at
Faculty adviser for the group is Mrs. Eide who has made all feel welcome at
the parties and who has assisted in making plans for the many enjoyable evenings.
