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.

THE MATHEMATICS CLUB
HE MATHEMATICS CLUB is an organization with the purpose of fostering a wider
interest in the field of mathematics, and promoting better fellowship among the
members. The activities of the club, which are planned and presented by the members,
include topics which are not ordinarily taught in formal classes such as mathematical
history, current scientific problems, and mathematical recreations.
This year the practice of having occasional informal meetings was again used. At
these meetings various games, mathematical recreations, and puzzles were presented. The
bulletin board was also taken charge of by the Mathematics Club.
The first meeting of the year was concerned with introducing the members to one
another by means of games and name tags. President Bents gave a short talk on the pur-
pose of the club.
A Homecoming float was built under the direction of Stanley Palm. The theme
"Wizard of Oz" was represented by the tornado-wrecked house which killed the wicked
witch. The float received first prize. At the Christmas party a play, "Professor Whizz
and His Mathematical Nuts," was presented under the direction of Ulrich Bents.
During the year the lives of a number of eminent mathematicians were discussed at
the meetings in commemoration of their birthdays. Among those discussed were Galois,
John Wallzice, Sonja Kovalevsky, Simon Newcomb, Emmy Noether, Galileo, Rene Des-
cartes and Euler.
Talks were given on graphical methods of solving equations, invariants, mathematical
societies in Europe and America, Moebus or one-sided surfaces, chrystolography, methods
of finding square and cube roots, magic squares, use of the transit in surveying, hyperbolic
functions, tricks in helping to solve equations, number systems, failure of the unique
factorization theorem in certain number fields, ideal numbers, calendars, minimum sur-
faces as demonstrated by soap film, and topology.
Among the students who appeared on the programs were Ulrich Bents, George Noyes,
Marcel Nelson, Howard Teske, Stanley Atkinson, Stanley Palm, Reuben Hermanson,
Mildred Birkmose, Ralph Van Sickle, Orlan Soli, William Sirek, Herbert Nelson, Ross
Jesse, Milton Rudell, Joseph Klucarich, Duane Anderson, Theodore Gleiter, James Bramer,
and Theodore Brandt.
A picnic on the mound concluded the club's activities for the year.
