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. l l Mabel Jorsfad

TI-IE PALETTE CLUB HE PALETTE CLUB, an organization of students interested in art, attempts to increase its understanding of art as well as to encourage the development of tech- nique, crafts, and special interests. At the first meeting of the old and the new members the executive committee was elected. The chairman, elected the preceding year, presided over the general meetings. Meetings were held at seven o'clock in the art room on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. During the first part of the year the organization drew up a new constitution, one more democratic in principle than the old one. The major activities of the year were confined wholly to individual craft work, such as: che making of braided purses, carving wooden plates, block printing and leather tooling. Decoration of the halls for the Christ- mas holidays was sponsored by the Student Senate. The last half of the year was spent in projects of individual interest. Plans were made for a trip to the Walker Art Gallery in the late spring. To raise money the club sold candy bars at a basketball game. lt also sponsored a display of contemporary American paintings for the student body. As a major social event of the year, Miss Greene served the Palette Club a buffet supper at her apartment, April 11. As the evening's entertainment the club attended the four one-act plays given by the Masquers. Somewhat later in the spring the last general meeting was held. Arrangements were made for the annual picnic as a conclusion to the year's work. This meeting was also devoted to the election of next year's chairman. Alberta M. Greene
