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

THE PALETTE CLUB HE most evident activity .of the Palette Club this year has been the sponsor- ing of a series of exhibits of contemporary American paintings. The exhibits have been open to the public and have furnished an opportunity for everyone to see examples of notable modern art. The four exhibits have pr.ovided a means for the school and public to become acquainted with the work being done by artists living today. Included in the series were works by such outstanding artists as John Martin, Georgia O'Keeffe, Peggy Bacon, and Marsden Hartley. A small jury of distinguished artists and art critics selected the pictures for the exhibits from hundreds submitted to them during the past year by foremost American artists. Using the paintings in the fourth group as examples, Miss Alberta Greene. head of the art department, talked before a meeting of the Palette Club on April 28, on "How to Look at Modern Pictures." The meeting was open to the student body and to the public. A number of people from the local com- munity attended this program. The student body was invited to another program at which a discussion of surrealism was conducted by members of the executive committee. Joseph Hyde reported the history of the movement, and Gertrude Peterson spoke on the emotional quality of surrealist productions. Using an exhibit of surrealist pictures gathered by 'Gertrude Stephenson, the group discussed their reactions to individual compositions. In accordance with a basic purpose of the Palette Club, many of the meetings have been planned to furnish the members with an opportunity for the recrea- tion derived from creative expression. During the fall term members, choosing individual projects, made Christmas cards and handicraft articles for Christmas presents. Through the remainder of the year projects were outlined by the oilicers for the group to do together. This year projects have been chosen which would acquaint the members with the fundamental principles of various artistic and handicraft processes. Clay model- ing, leather tooling, and Wood carving, and portrait sketching were among them. A friendly, unified spirit was fostered in the society early in the year when the club's adviser, Miss Greene, entertained the group at her apartment. On the first evening after Easter vacation the organization held another party, this time in the social room. This friendly spirit developed further during the month of May when the club went on a series of sketching tours. With the aid of Miss Greene's rich sketching experience, the gr.oup found real enjoyment in recording their im- pressions of scenes in and near River Falls. f173l
