THE SCIENCE CLUB HE Science Club was organized in the spring of 1935 by a group of students desirous of creating an interest in current affairs in science. Meetings are held twice a month in the chemistry lecture room at which time programs are given which should appeal to all students interested in science. Membership in the club is open to all students who are either majoring or minoring in science and to all students who have had ten credit hours of science. The student body is, however, invited to attend the meetings. The college science teachers are honorary members of the organization. Mr. R. E. Spriggs is the club's adviser. The programs are made up of talks and demonstrations by faculty members, students, and outside speakers and of instructive motion pictures. During the past year the programs named below have been given. On October fifteenth Lawrence Hope, the district conservation warden, gave a talk on the conservation movement in Wisconsin and showed two very inter- esting Conservati.on Department films entitled "Propagating Northern Pike," and "The 'White-tailed Deer." On October twenty-ninth an inspection tour of River Falls' new sewage disposal plant was made. This plant is new and unique and was explained by Williain Hagestad, consulting engineer. On January twelfth Mr. C. G. Stratton, head of the geography department, spoke on the subject of the calendar. He gave the history and evolution of the calendar and discussed the vari.ous proposed calendar changes. On the twenty-sixth of January A. W. Plahn, the district oil inspector, demonstrated and explained the inspection of oils and fuels. In demonstrating, he performed the inspection of gasoline, kerosene, and motor oil. On February ninth Lawrence Peterson of the River Falls Motor Company showed an instructive group of films on the motor industry. These films showed the entire process in the manufacture of an automobile from the raw to the Hnished product. On February twenty-third R. E. Spriggs of the college faculty, discussed the subject, 'lWhat Is New in Auto-Power Design." Among the new trends dis- cussed was the interesting subject of Diesel engines. Perhaps the most interesting program of all was that of April sixth. The five reel nlm, "Jewels of Industry," was shown. This film gave the complete story .of carborundum and its use in modern industry. The film was preceded by a short talk by Dr. R. E. Karges, who described his visit to the carborundum plant at Niagara Falls. At the business meeting which followed the last meeting officers for the coming year were elected. The following were elected: Leonard Hermanson, president: Ralph Baker, vice-presidentg Frederick J.ohnson, secretary: and Russell Gettinger, treasurer. H771

DIE DEUTSCHE GESELLSCHAFT IE DEUTSCHF. GESELLSCHAFT is a club open to all students interested in the German language or in German customs, arts, and personalities. As such it is in no sense an exclusive organization, but is designed to render its serv- ices to a large group. Only a reasonable degree of familiarity with the German language is expected of its members. A German club had not existed on the campus for many years, but this year so great a demand was evidenced for such an organization that Die Deutsche Gesellschaft was organized last fall. The primary aims of the- society as stated in its constitution are: l. To afford those interested in German an opportunity for social contact. 2. To develop skill in using and understanding spoken German. 3. To gain a knowledge of German life and customs. 4. To learn to appreciate German arts. 5. To promote an understanding of contemporary German history and an acquaintance with great German personalities. Meetings are held in the social room of South Hall on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7:30 p. m. The new organization has had a very successful initial season. Group sing- ing of German songs during a part of each meeting has been one of the most popular activities of the society. ln this way the entire membership participates in realizing several of the aims of the club and at the same time enjoys a novel form of recreation. Wlienever possible it has been customary to play various German games to enliven the social period following each program. This feature has been much enjoyed and has brought about a spirit of good fellowship coincident with prac- tice in the use of the language. In order to encourage a wide membership the club has not assessed regular dues but has simply made small charges for refreshments and other incidentals as the need arose. On February 18 the club presented for the public a colorful program of German music that was especially enjoyed. Every type of German music was represented from the compositions. of the great masters to the rollicking airs associated with 'German student life and the "Bier Garten." Groups participating included Mr. Rozehnal, Rozehnal's string ensemble, Herr Fritz and his 'German Band from the River Falls high school, Miss Ardelle Hamlett at the piano, and a group of vocal soloists and ensembles. I Two other meetings of special note were held in the spring. At the first meeting Dr. Karges gave a very lucid account of the scientific achievements of Goethe, that giant of versatility. The other meeting was a joint session with the Clef Club. Miss Hamlett gave an inclusive review of the Wagnerian opera, "Tristan," following which both groups participated in a dancing party in North Hall gymnasium. Much credit for the success of the club must go to Mr. Whitenack, whose versatile knowledge, ready wit, and linguistic fluency made him a favorite speaker as well as adviser for the organization.
