THE HONOR SOCIETY HE Honor Society is made up of those students who have received two and one-half fhonor points per credit hour for one term or more. Approximately ninety persons have achieved such records and are included as members of the organization. A small silver "R," which may be worn by the members, is the emblem of the Honor Society. Upon graduation a gold "R" is awarded to those who have had two and one-fourth honor points per credit hour and have received no grade below a "C." This is based on eleven terms of work. Because of the diverse interests of its membership, the Honor Society functions chiefly as a social organization. Meetings are held monthly, and consist of parties or other activities conducted for the enjoyment of the members. Members of the group acting in committees plan and and put on the parties. The Hrst activity of the year was the construction of the Honor Society float for Homecoming under the direction of Harold Doornink. Members of the organization met eight times during the year. Three of these meetings were informal teas, given to welcome new members at the beginning of each term. At each of the teas musical selections were given with Margaret Johnson and Margaret Bendix at the piano. Mrs. Eide was hostess at a Christmas tea for the group, which then included new members joining at the close of the first term. Gladys Bleisner was pianist. Several parties were also given by the organization. Among those who appeared on programs throughout the year were Carl Miller, James Grunke, Mary Catherine O'Connell, and Jack Bailey. Especially entertaining was the program given by Carl Miller, in which he described his trip through Europe the previous summer with his collegiate orchestra. Beautiful photographs and slides of Paris, London, and other famous cities were shown. This year, as has been customary with the Honor Society, several unique party ideas were introduced. Chairmen for these parties were Margaret Bendix, Jack Osborne, and Mildred Hillestad, each of whom introduced several new games to the group. Most fun was the all-newspaper party, directed by Mildred Hillestad, in which newspapers were used for every imaginable purpose-even that of costumes for the members. Jack Osborne's game which attempted to make all Honor Society members into comic artists also proved a success. The two final meetings of the year consisted of the election of officers for 1940-41 in April and of a picnic in May. All activities of the Honor Society are planned to foster a feeling of friendship among the members and to give each person a chance to work with others. Margarer Chapman Eide

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION LUMNI members of the River Falls Student Young Men's Christian Association commemorated the first quarter century of campus service of this organization in presenting a plaque to the institution. Beginning the second quarter century, the "YU has been successful this year in fulnlling its purpose to offer the men in college an opportunity to unite in the development of Christian personality through wholesome social and religious participation, to cooperate with other colleges in a world wide fellow- ship, and to influence thinking toward a Christian solution of campus, community, and world problems. Significance beyond the local campus continued to be gained. Last summer the five members that represented the organization at the Lake Geneva District Conference directed the Program Workshopg and at the spring Minnesota-Wisconsin Conference at Camp Ihduhapi, representatives led the group discussion on finance and directed the Saturday evening recreation hour. The 140 members took part in one or more of the fourteen departments, each being directed by a cabinet member. The success that was realized can be attributed largely to the weekly cabinet meetings and other conferences. Cabinet members and the adviser spent a week-end on a spring retreat at Big Lake to evaluate the year's work and just prior to the convocation of the school year, five days were spent at Fisherman's Rest, El Paso, planning a constructive program of work. Valuable ideas were received from the Lake Independence regional and the Lake Geneva district conferences. ., This organization began its campus service when, in cooperation with the Young Won1en's Christian Association, it sponsored the freshman mixer party the first evening of the school year. The following Sunday, freshmen were given breakfast at the college cafeteria and then guided and introduced to their respective church groups. Special attention was given in the early part of the year to the orientation of new students to college life. Every Monday evening the organization met for an educational or recreational program designed to fill a present need, these meetings were the core of the "Y" activities. Outstanding were the addresses by Dr. T. Z. Koo and Reverend James Flint, the February series of four lectures on various phases of marriage, the amateur program, and the open house meetings the first Monday of each term. On alternate Sunday mornings the senior cabinet and the junior cabinet met at Professor Jacobson's home for breakfast and followed this by a discussion of vital present day problems. Opportunity for group discussion on such subjects was also extended to the lay membership when, on alternate Monday evenings for a part of the year, nine groups met at the homes of college faculty members for this purpose. As in former years, this group built the float for the Homecoming Queen. Outstand- ing social events were the folk dances and the twenty-third annual bean soup stag party, in which a large proportion of the men in college participated. Members of the next year's cabinet pledged their support to the organization at the annual installation banquet. The Junior Hi-Y displayed a great deal of enthusiasm in their program of vocational guidance, character building, and leisure time activities. To keep 160 closely associated alumni members in contact with the YMCA and with each other, three volumes of the "Y Alumnus" were sent to them throughout the year. The deputations, music, and dramatics departments sponsored twenty programs in off-the-campus relations. Vesper services were held at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter seasons. This organization was also largely responsible in caring for the Men's Union.
