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 the Hornets. 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 Prucha. 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 entertainment. 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 school. ' 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. f 1691

THE RURAL LIFE CLUB ' HE Rural Life Club is an organization which has been influential in the rural department for nearly twenty-Eve years. All students enr.olled in the rural courses are members of the organization and are given an opportunity to develop the qualities of leadership desirable for teachers in rural schools. For the past two years its enrollment has been increased due to the adoption of a two-year rural course for all rural teachers. This gives the club the advantage of experi- enced members and an organization that is continuous from year to year. Miss Jorstad acts as faculty adviser of the group. . 4 Regular meetings of the Rural Life Club are held the first and third Thursday evenings of each month. The early part of the evening consists of a business meeting, the primary purpose of which is to give practice in parliamentary pro- cedure essential for conducting school societies and community meetings. The remainder of the evening is devoted to programs of education and entertainment. The interesting educati.onal programs which have been given are the results of the efforts of the chairman of the program committee and the cooperation of the members. Some of the students who have given talks on particular problems are: Velma Livingston, Joyce Snow, Edith Stewart, Mary McCardle, and Doris Nystrom. Such problems as rural community organizations, rural school programs, choral speech, and music in rural schools were discussed. Others who have helped with the programs this year are: Miss Louise Hilder, Miss Stella Hendrickson and Professor Malott. Attendance at out of town rural meetings has been featured. Most of the sophomore members of the club went to the Pierce County school board convention at Ellsworth in October. Several students accompanied Miss J.orstad and Mr. Malott to Eau Claire on May fifteenth and reported a very worth while rural convention. Programs of entertainment other than informational activities were also included in the year's meetings. Early in the year a picnic to welcome freshman members was held in Glen Park. The first indoor meeting was also devoted to playing "get-acquainted" games: and, as in previous years, a feeling of interest and cooperation among the members of the department was established. The last meeting before Christmas was given over to the playing of games and drawing of names for the exchange of Christmas cards. In January the social entertainment consisted of a sleigh-ride party at which most of the participants were unceremoniously dumped into snowbanks. After the ride refreshments were served and the new officers were elected. These officers have very ably led the club during the last half of the year. During the last half of the winter and the lirst half of the spring terms, the sophomore students spent six weeks in rural school districts which are located from five to eighteen miles from the campus. The last Rural Life Club meeting before leaving for practice was extended so that farewells could be made. How- ever, after six weeks of practice experience in a rural school the students usually regretted leaving their younger friends and the rural critic who had indeed been a friend to each of the inexperienced "student teachers." The rural critics are: Miss Bernice Hawkins at the Hammond Central School, Miss Florence Jenson at the I-lerum School, and Miss Ruth Nelson at the Angel Hill School. On April twenty-ninth the sophomore members were entertained at the home .of Professor and Mrs. Malott. After dinner a very enjoyable evening was spent around the fireplace. 1' 1711
