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

THE MATHEMATICS CLUB THE Mathematics Club is a comparatively recent organization. It was organ- ized three years ago for the purpose of studying those topics of mathematics which do not fit into any course offered, or which time does not allow the members to study in class. All people who take mathematics courses and have a C average in these are allowed to become members. The organization meets every second Wednesday of the month when a few of the members talk on mathematics topics. Several programs of interest have been presented this year. The first program of the year was held October 14, 1936. The topic of discussion by George Freier was "The Beauty of Mathematicsnz "Magic Circles" was discussed by Ruth Nelson. On December 9, 1936, the Mathematics Club had a party in the social room. Games, puzzles, and a play, "The Eternal Triangle," provided the entertainment of the evening. On January 13, 1937, Nolan Isaacson demonstrated the use of the Trigono- graph with which one may multiply, divide, and nnd functions of angles much more easily than by ordinary methods. The New Number System based on the number twelve was presented by Ralph Baker. At another meeting complex numbers were discussed by Nolan Isaacson and non-Euclidean geometry by Russell Gettinger. Mrs. Eide gave at this meeting an interesting talk on her trip to the Council of Teachers .of Mathematics at Chicago. , At one of the meetings Galen Meier discussed the history of vr. Kathleen Puller told about Descartes and his work on analytical geometry, which was published in 1637, thus making this year the three hundredth anniversary. One of the best programs of the year was a symposium on numerology pre- sented by the following freshman students: Loren Lund, Willard Klugow, Carl Miller, Ulrich Bents, and Donald Monson. The last meeting of the year was in the social room. Reynold Pedersen and Everett Compton reviewed tw.o recent books on mathematics, "Mathematics for the Million" and "Men of Mathematics." After this games of mathematics were played and refreshments served. 11751
