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
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
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.

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
HE local Young Women's Christian Association is a branch of the national Young
Women's Christian Association and is alliliated with the World Student Christian
Federation. This organization aims toward promoting a fuller and more creative life for
the girls of the campus and toward helping them build a character and personality well
adjusted to college life.
The Young Women's Christian Association is governed by a cabinet, which consists
of the four oflicers and nine chairmen who direct the various activities of the program.
The cabinet is assisted by an advisory board of three members, each serving a term of
three years. The present advisory board consists of Mrs. Justin Williams, Miss Mabel
Bridges and Mrs. John Knapp. Miss Irma Hathorn is the faculty adviser.
The alternate Monday night meetings of the "Y" this year have been devoted to social
events, a series of lectures, a style show, and musical programs. Among the outstanding
events of the year were the trip to the settlement house in St. Paul, the worship services,
and the joint Young Men's Christian Association and Young Women's Christian Asso-
ciation marriage course. Our Chinese tea with the Chinese displays was also an outstand-
ing feature of this year's work.
An outstanding social feature of the year was the Puff Pant Prom, at which half the
girls wore their formals and the other half accompanied them in men,s suits.
A record group attended the fall conference at Carleton this year, at which delegates
from all the colleges in the Minnesota-Northern Wisconsin area were present. A large
delegation also attended the annual spring conference at Ihduhapi, Lake Independence,
twenty miles from Minneapolis.
Verna Annett and Elma Chappelle attended the Ihduhapi planning conference at the
University of Minnesota in February. This year has been a high point in the successful
new projects that have been placed within reach of the student body.
