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.

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA A ROFESSOR JOHN M. MAY, head of the agriculture department, was largely resp.onsible for promoting the collegiate chapter of the Future Farmers of America which was organized at the beginning of the year. Mr. L. M. Sasman, state supervisor of vocational agriculture, spoke to the men of the agriculture department on the value of a collegiate chapter during the organization period. The agricultural students believed that an organization of this kind would serve the needs of prospective Smith-Hughes agriculture teachers better than the Agrifallian society which for many years had iilled the needs of the agriculture students. Because every Smith-Hughes high school agriculture department spon- sors a Future Farmers chapter, the men of this department wanted experience and information concerning this line of their Work. Collegiate Future Farmer chapters are chartered by and are under the author- ity of the state associations of Future Farmers of America. The sole purpose of such chapters is the training of prospective teachers of vocational agriculture in their duties as local advisers of high school chapters. The activities of the local chapter must be in harmony with the purposes, principles, and ideals of the National Future Farmers organization: the meetings are conducted according to the national ritual. A constitution was drawn up by Donald Aderhold, Francis I-laugh, Michael Reagan and Louis Zahradka. This constitution states the rights and privileges of the organization, which also includes a system of degrees designed to stimulate advancement by the members. An organization of degree teams to confer higher degrees on eligible members of neighboring high sch.ool chapters, the conducting of a rural school day to provide educational demonstrations and entertainment for rural school children, and the conducting of an educational meeting on Future Farmer activitiesfor oflicers of high school Future Farmer chapters are the main activities of the River Falls Collegiate Chapter of Future Farmers of America. These are the activities with which agriculture teachers in the iield will come in contact. They give prospective teachers experience and at the same time give them a chance to come in contact with the types of boys and girls with whom they will be working. flSl1
