THE RURAL LIFE CLUB
EVERY student in the rural department is a member of the Rural Life Club. Member-
ship is not compulsory to all students in this department, but everyone feels that
he will enrich his experiences by being a member. The purpose of this organization is to
provide a means of bringing the rural students together so that they may become better
acquainted and at the same time enjoy the educational and entertaining program which
is the major attraction of each meeting.
Regular meetings were held the third Tuesday of every month, until it was decided
at the March meeting to meet twice a month, the first Tuesday as well as the third.
Much of the success of the club depends upon the chairman of the program com-
mittee. Camilla Parent had charge of the programs for the first half of the year and
Marion Estenson took over the responsibility for the remainder of the year.
Our December meeting was a Christmas party at which games, presents from the
tree, and refreshments were featured. Miss Haddow and Mr. O'Bierne gave very interest-
ing talks at two of our other meetings. In April the first ten sophomores to secure teach-
ing positions for next year gave a recreational program at which games were played and
refreshments were furnished.
The Rural Life Club feels the effect of the practice teaching in the rural communities,
a six-weeks period in which twelve or sixteen members of the rural department are living
in the rural community. Because of the large number enrolled in the sophomore class this
year, it was necessary to begin the practice work during the second half of the first term.
While the students are doing their practice work, many of them live in the country and
enjoy the country life just as they will when they are actually teaching. The schools in
which students practiced this year were: The Gertrude School, Miss Clarice Anderson,
teacher, the Lincoln School, Miss Vivian Afdahl, teacherg the Valley View School, Mrs.
Archie Afdahl, teacher, and the South Rush River School, Miss Marion Bergseng, teacher.
As a climax to the year's activities, the Rural Life Club sent delegates to the Country
Life Convention at the Central Teachers College at Stevens Point on May 3 and 4.
