Synod Accepts Accreditation

MESSENGER Dr. Martin Luther Cctlege

October I, 1963

New UIm, Minnesota

Grow-th Seen on Campus New Dorm Mushrooms

Dr. Martin Luther College has been accepted as an accredited Minnesota college for acceptance of credit by the University of MinneIota. This accreditation was the result of a program which began in 1956 when the Wisconsin Synod instructed the Board of Education to study the matter.

The new four-story dormitory for women presently being built on our campus is the object of much interest and speculation. It is being built near the old tennis courts, facing north towards Center Street. The approximate dimensions of the building are 40 x 180.

An intensive self-study was made of DMLC by the faculty and Board 0f Regents. This included an analylis of OUf philosophy and purpose, faculty qualification, curriculum, instruction, student personnel procedures, administration, financial support, and other phases of general college operation. Following the .. If-study, an eight-man group from the Committee on Institutional Relationships visited the college. On the basis of their visits and ths ir review of the self-study, the committee recommended to the Faculty Senate of the University of Minnesota that Dr. Martin Luther College be added to the list oC Minnesota accredited colleges. The formal aceeptance by the Faculty Senate took place on June 6, 1963.

When completed, the dormitory will bave a capacity of 220 girls. Each room will house two girls. The basement will contain a large town girls' room and a lounge. A lounge is located on every floor except first floor, where a reception room takes its place. The basement room is provided for this purpose for those living on first floor. The building WIll bave three entries. This dormitory is expected to be completed in August 1964 as the first in a complex of three buildings to house women students. The other two buildings will be added when the need exists. Busy Workmen Make Dorm Plan a Reality

The final action was the acceptance of accreditation by the Wiseonsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod at their Biennial Convention in August. It was clearly pointed out that this accreditation does not interfere with nor contradict our educational principles.

A 20% enrollment increase is seen this year at DMLC with an Increase from 203 to 363 students. Th. high school enrollment also increased from 227 to 244. The total number of students at Dr. Martin Luther College and High School this year presently is 607, a fact made evident by students being delayed in the halrs on their wav to classes and by the long lines and congestion in the dining hall.

makes acceptance into the graduate schools of other colleges easier.

Architect's View of Women's Dormitory

During the week preceding the annual Student Councrl elections, the students at DMLC were thoroughly engrossed in a vigorous campaign effort. Posters dotting the walls in every building on campus and students sporting campaign but .. tons advertising their favorite candidate were typical sights during this week. On September 16, the eve before the big election, each candidate seeking office addressed the student body by stating his qualifications, aims, and desire to represent the students. Paul Koepsell acted as the master of ceremonies for the evening. Dennis Schultz and Bill Habermann were the two seniors seeking the presidency. The vicepresidency was sought by Eldon Lemke and John Schultz, both juniors. Anita Lemke, a senior, Casey Bauer, a junior, and Rosie Belter, also a junior, were in contention for the office of secretary. Mickey Horman, a senior, and Phyllis Schwantes, a junior, were the two candidates for the position of treasurer. After participating in the campaigns and listening to the speeches of the nine candidates, 489 students, or approximately 81 % of the student body turned out at the polls. These students €Iected the following to serve in the capacity of Student Council officers for the 63-64 sehool term: William Habermann, president Eldon Lemke, vice-president CUSf'YBauer, secrp.tar:'o' Phyllic: S('h\\·;lDtc~, frCaSUrf'r

The nature and number of the staff personnel have not been decided. And, what about a name? That, too, has not been chosen. Meanwhile, we are thankful for God's direction and blessing in this. the first stage of our college expansian program.

Editorial Growth! What Does It Mean to Us? Growth! Such a short word, yet so much is being said about it in this day and age of ours. Population explosion, urban sprawl, metropolis, and slum area-all these are terms which have come into being as a result of the tremendous growth in population of our nation and the world. Growth has also taken place in a different way. A high state of industrialization has become characteristic of many countries of the world. Along with industrialization have come scientific and technological advances which have created standards of living now soaring to heights never before attained. These advances have served to produce surpluses of manufactured and agricultural products in quantities never before surpassed. The growth of population has also been realized in our transportation system. Superhighways, including expressways and interstates, have been built. with increasing rapidity in order to accommodate the ever-increasing number of people who usc our nation's highways. This growth has not been advantageous for all. The increase in population and in industrialization has brought about limited housing in many parts of the world. Millions of people are starving because crowded conditions do not allow them sufficient areas in which to grow food or because automation resulting from industrialization has deprived them of jobs. Educational facilities throughout the world on the elementary, secondary and college levels have also been affected by this growth. These facilities have become highly inadequate because of the huge increase in tbe school-age element of the population and in those seeking higher education in order to cope with the needs of our ever-enlarging modern society. How has this overall growth affected our Church, especially our Wisconsin Synod? We have grown also, although, it is true, at a lower rate. Our increased membership is probably the most evident indication of the growth which we bave experienced. However, our new churches and day schools also attest to the fact that we have grown, as docs our ever-present and increasing shortage of pastors and teachers. DMLC has also experienced a growth in population. This year's enrollment has risen above the sixhundred mark for the first time in the history of the College. Consequently, elaborate plans have been made to expand the faeili tics needed to accommodate the ever-increasing student body. Probably the most obvious evidence of these plans is the excavation on the athletic field which will soon boast a new girls' dormitory. Just as obvious a testimony to the growth which DMLC has experienced are the present packed corridors, full classrooms, crowded living conditions and the increased number of off-campus studcnts. How will this growth affect our College? Will it affect it as growth has affected the world outside our Church where quality has often been sacrificed for the sake of, the production of great quantities? Will the caliber of the Christian students who pass through our doors go down because of the increased -enrollment? Pray God this may never bappen! Let us strive always t.o maintain the atmosphere of a Christian family, although a very large one, united in Christ Jesus through faith in His atoning work.

God Thought of " Child When God made the sand on a tide-washed beach, He thought of a little child With a battered shovel and leaky pail, A small wooden boat without a sail, A tiny child with soft chubby hands To build castles and pies in the afternoon sands. He thought of a child With ten wiggling toes To drop footprints behind him wherever he goes On the quiet beach, till the waters cur. Over each little mark with one noisy swirl. He thought of a child Who would droop its blond head Till the warm breast of sand became a huge bed. He thought of the dreams of the sweet little one, As fair and as light as the Iar-away sun. And with His power and love so free, Because of this child someday to be, God made that beach in eternity. . -Ca-ol Kohl

Autumn's coming, autumn's comingI feel it in the air. I sniff the crispness all about, J hear a child's shrill, laughing shout, The sky above is blue and bare; The breeze plays lightly through my hairWho on earth could have a care When autumn's coming!

Professor Brick spent six weeks in the city of Rome, where he and his group took field trips into the surrounding area once or twice a week, and had many opportunities to visit various locations by themselves. From Rome the group went to Naples, spending twelve days studying the Vergilian society at Cumae, twelve miles outside of Naples.

Needless to say, Professor Brick hopes to return to Italy, and he hopes that many also will have that wonderful opportunity.

It's almost here, it's almost here The robins all have lied, The flowers have a withered hue, Their youthful days are almost through, For nature calls them to their bed While leaves are turning orange and red, And the sun is chilly overhead. Autumn's almost here!

Transition Year For DMLC The school year of 1964-1965 will be a year of transition at DMLC with the initiation of the new professional semester, which provides for a revised curriculum and improved student teaching program for college seniors. 40-

Professor D. Brick. an instructor in Latin and religion at DMLHS, had the opportunity to spend this past summer in study in Europe. Professor Brick was granted a Fulbright scholarship by the State Department, and spent the greater part of the summer in Rome and Naples and the surrounding areas. There he visited the classical sites of antiquity, among them the Colosseum at Rome, cemeteries and tombs at Veii, sites of the old Etruscan civilization, and many more.

In following issues of the Mes" senger you will read about Professor Brick's trip across the Atlantic en board an Italian liner, his interesting view of cosmopolitan Rome and the rough seaport city of Napies, his study of ancient civilizations, and strangely enough, his encounter with graduates of DMLC.

A Dream I live a dream. Nothing around me is Teal. It is all there for a moment And then is seen no more. Hope is empty, Joy is vain. I touch pleasure And then it slips awav And leaves me onlv [Tid, WhICh in itself is not real. So I walk in my dream, And so it must be Until the day when I wake up and find myselfIn eternity. - Carol Kohl

The new professional semester will improve the quality of the student teaching program in that the period of student teaching will be 9 weeks in length rather than the present 6week program. Another important feature is that it will eliminate any conflict between the academic program on campus and the student teaching schedule. Student teaching under the new program will be done not only in New DIm, but also outside of the New Ulm area. The Watertown and Appleton, Wisconsin, areas, which offer good opportunities for student teaching at schools and in communities of varied sizes. will be used the first year. Schools in other areas of the Synod will be added in the future. The student teachers will be under the direct supervision of the Tf'g'uiarly called classroom teacher. However, frequent visits will be made by a DMLC faculty supervisor. Those students enrolled in j hn three-year program will not benefit from the professional semester. but will continue their present program. They will do their st uden t Leaching at St. Paul's in New Ulm and will receive only G semester hours of credit for student teaching, whereas the four-year students will obtain 8 semester hours of credit under the professional semester system.

All of this year's student teachers appeared in their respective classrooms on Oct. 2 to meet the parents of their future pupils.

Each year several instructors are invited to our campus to teach during the summer session. This past summer seven men from our synod and area schools taught with some o( DMLC's own professors. They were Professor Martin Albrecht, former head of the DMLC music department, who is now at our seminary in Mequon; Professor Emmanuel Arndt of Milwaukee Lutheran Teachers' College; Professor Edward Fredrich, a teacher of religion, Latin, and English at Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw; Professor Arthur Glenda, prlncipal of St. Paul's Lutheran school here in New DIm; Professor Erwin Scharf of Northwestern College at Watertown; Professor Harold Warnk e, principal of Fox Valley Lutheran High in Appleton, Wisconsin; and Professor Gerald MaUmann, instructor in science at the same school.

Tutor Schulz

.. New Students Orientated On September 2, 1963, a group of students composed of students from grade 9, college freshmen, and transfer students headed for the Music Center to begin what might well be their most memorable week at DMLC. That night orientation began, and with it began a hearty greeting to the new students. During the week that followed, the many student strangers to DMLC discovered much about the campus and its students. By means of hikes to Flandrau and the public library, they discovered many offcampus haunts. Also, they became acquainted with their spiritual advisors and with the many regulations of campus life. Best of all, however. these new students cultivated many new and lasting friendships among their brothers and sisters in the DMLC family.

Wayne Schulz, an alumnus of both the high school and college department at Northwestern College, is also serving in the capacity of tutor this year. In addition to his regular duties, he teaches ninth grade Latin. Tutor Schulz, who has lived in almost every corner of the state of Wisconsin, is presently living in Cambria, \",'here his father is pa~tnr. His interests are many and varird, In addition to being sports-mindC'd, he enjoys listening to folk mu~ic and music of the Baroque Era. He is favorably impressed hy the student body at DMLC and enjoys working with the fellows in the dormitory; however, he feels that the students could dev<lop a better sense of responsibility. He also feels that the association with many of our future teachers will help him promote good teacher-pastor relationships when he gets into the field.

The students who volunteer their services as referees and umpires do not pretend to be experts; they may miss a call occasionally, but they have volunteered their time. They do not expect to serve as a target for the outbursts of anger of the would-be-athletes, since they expect a true athlete to accept the decision of the officials as final.

Intramurals Organized Luther Lo.e. to Cathedral 38-0 Dr. Martin Luther High School, fielding a comparatively young team with only nine returning lettermen, lost to New U1m Cathedral at Johnson field on September 6. Luther moved 65 yards for its only score, with Hempel completing tHree" paJ:lje!f--r:m:t--~·-~~

most of the ball carrying. Hempel carried around right and the last six yards into pay dirt. Aside from Gronholz's running was the fine passing of Phil Hempel, who completed 10 of 18 passes and Don Luedtke, who Was on the receiving end of most of the aerials. The game was predicted as a close contest; however, the Cathedral team came up with some unexpected football savoy and capitalized on Luther'S fumbles and mental lapses. Indians Scalp Luther 19-0 On September 13, Luther High traveled to Butterfield, only to lose 19-0. It was the opening game for both schools in the Red Rock Conference. Luther received the opening kickoff and moved down to the Indians six-yard line, only to run up against a charged up defense. Had Luther capitalized here, it may have been a different game. The Luther offense bogged down whenever it got into scoring position. In the waning minutes of the first half, an intercepted pass and run back of 45 yards made the score

12-0. Luther Bow. to Comfrey 13-6 Luther went to Comfrey, Minnesota, on September 20, to play a highly favored Comfrey team. It was not until the fourth period that the Rockets got the margin they needed for victory. The game Was -~foupob

only four more total yards than did Luther. The Rams cashed in on a Comfrey fumble on the Rocket 15-yard line. With a determined drive by fullback Wayne Cole, who led the

offense to the one yard line, Steve Gauger crashed through for the TD. It was a spirited Luther team that lost to Comfrey and a spirited student body that traveled atong to cheer their team. Coach Fred Reiderich feels that the team has been improving, and with the support of the students the ~aams could end up with a .500 season. Luther Has First Win The Ra ms gained their first victory of the season by blowing down Sanborn 33-0.

Bowlers Roll First Series The Ophidia Bowling League got an early start this year. A meeting early in September was called for all college men interested in bowling. Officers were elected, and the bowlers were told to organize six teams. The first three-game series of th e 20-week season was rolled on Wednesday afternoon, September 11, at the Concordia Lanes.

Each -team plays-six games this season. The first game, a contest between the sophomores and the juniors, took place, Monday afternoon. Scoreless most or the game, the third-year people went down to defeat 32 to 6. Tuesday's encounter between the sophomores and freshmen was rained out. On Thursday the juniors defeated the freshmen 30 to 12.

Women's Softball Five teams of girls signed to play intramura I softball this fall. Each team has at least one gz me under its belt. A team from each class of college girls and two teams from the third year are all vying for the championship this year. Four softball teams were formed by the high school girls. Each team has played twice, even though rain caused several postponements. The teams at present seem to be well matched, but it will Lake a few more games to name the leaders.

Mrs. Warren Cade, a native of Fremont, Nebraska, is one of two new piano instructors at DMLC. Mrs. Cade obtained a bachelor's degree in music from the American Conservatory in Chicago and a master's degree in music from the University of Nebraska. She comes to us from Evansville College in Indiana where she conducted adult piano and music appreciation courses.

Our new piano instructress, who Irequently attends concerts and plays and also enjoys reading and cooking, finds that she likes it here at DMLC "very much."

Miss Griebling, one of our new music instructors, is not new to the campus since she received her college education here. She is not even new to the music department because she has been active in many musical activities. The thing that is new about her is the fact that she is now a member of the music faculty. In this position, she inatructs fifty-one students in the art of organ playing.

Made Union

This year our Student Union is being visited by more people than ever before in a single year. This is due primarily to a Iew changes which have come about in its setup. When D~!LC students enrolled this fall, the pavmont of their incidental fees automatically made them all members of the Student Union; com~equcntly, the hours of the Stu U have also been changed. Every evening it is open from 9:15 to 10:00 for college students. Saturday evenings find both prep and college people there until dorm curfew.

Festival Service Held Dr. Martin Luther College was the site of the tenth annual mass Reformation service held bv the Wisconsin Synod churches iOn the New Ulm area. The service took place on Sunday, October :37, at 8:00 p.m. in the college auditorium. Professor Herbert Jaster, of the faculty, was the speaker (or this festival service. He used as his sermon theme "The One Foundation Which Is Laid," taken from I Corinthians 3 :11-15. Pastor G. Birkholz was the liturgist for the service, with Teacher Richard Sonntag and Professor M. Zahn directing the children's and mass choirs. respectively. The children's choir, which was composed of the day school children in the New Vim area, sang "Before The Lord We Bow."


The mass chorus, composed congregational choirs throughout th area, sang "0 God Our Lord, Thl Holy Word."

To increase the facilities, a new popcorn machine was donated by the Ladies' Auxiliary. Mr. Seifert, the business manager, donated a candy case and a ca!'h register.

Organist for the service was Professor W. Nolte of DMLC. After the pre-service Reformation music by a brass ensemble, be played the voluntary, "We Now Implore God The Holy Ghost," by Buxtehude.

Previous to the posting of these two signs, the walls of the Administration Building had heen used for campaign posters, invitations, announcements, and team-backing signs.

Th; Student Council has posted these signs up and down to tell people that between classes the stairs to the west are to be used only for those heading downstairs and the eastern stairway is to be used only for traveling upstairs. It is all a part of the plan of the Council, along with faculty collaboration, to relieve some of the crowded hallway' conditions during the five-minute breaks between classes. Because of DMLC's population explosion, certain steps for relieving congestion in the halls were deemed necessary by the faculty. The Student Council has acted, and acted well, in its plan to rid the halls of as much of this congestion as possible. It is now up to everyone of us as individuals to follow the Council's plan and travel accordingly The success of the plan does not depend upon what has theoretically been laid out on a planning board, but upon what is actually done by each and every student. Until now, the students have been co-operating. -Barbara


I Hate the Rain Some people like the rain. I \ul,te it, ' I luite ~dt little' spatteririi drop' That hits the sidewalks in a Sudden burst of temperament. I hate the cloudy sky Full up with gloom and darkness. I hate the tiny, splashy puddles And the rain-filled gutters, Miniature floods rolling' Down the street. I hate the smell of it, The pungent breath of freshness That hits the nostrils. I hate the sound of it, Sheets of wetness dripping, pouring, Tapping, sobbing. I hate the rain With all my heart and soul, But when the rain is done, Oh joy! How I love the sun! -Carol Kohl

Library Corner Since July the Library has accessionerl OVN 200 books. Naturally it v....ould be impossible to review all of these, but the editors nf the MESSE·NGER have granted the librarian space liberal enough to bring to the notice of the readers of the paper outstanding books which have been placed in the stacks during the past months. This, then, is to be the first of a series of book columns in our school paper. World War I is slowly coming into the book-publishing picture after a long period of unexplained neglect. Barrie Pitt's 1918, The Last Act (N.Y., Norton, 1962) is a dramatic account of the last year of the war, w hen the Russian Revolution released the German armies in the East before the might of America could be mustered on the western front. The author's account of loaders and men, of staff -successes and failures, makes interesting reading. World War I hegins to show signs of, challenging the Civil' War as subject matter for books. A second volume covering a section of the same period is Alistair Horne's The Price of Glory (N.Y., St. Martin's Press, 1962), a detailed account of the gory battle that swirled about the fortifications of Verdun. The stupid leadership of both German and French armies was almost unbelievable, as Was the courage and tenacity of the men in the ranks. A battle line less than three and one-halt miles in length which brought with it 350,000 deaths and an equal number of seriously wounded soldiers marks this hattie for attention. The author arouses that attention, for he marshals evidence of long and careful study of the events and persons connected with what the Germans called "Operation Execution Place." Your librarian Was es· pecially interested in the account, for he was able to recognize many places described there as areas which his military company traversed. Andre Bonnard's three-volume Greek Civilization (N.Y., Macmillan, 1957) brings to our shelves a master of the period he examin€s. The books, carefully translated from the French, augment our backlog of material on the period. Written in popular style despite the erudition of the author, the vol-. umes bring the reader an excellent introduetion to Greek life and thought. Many fullpage illustrations heighten the value of the books. Two publications of the American Library Association (Chicago, Illinois) should attract the attention of all those who have an interest in children's literature and in the expansion of school libraries. The Basic Book Collection for Elementary Schools and the Ba.ic Book Collection for Junior Hich Schools are bibliographies established by experts in the field. About 1000 publica-

tions are listed in each volume, classified by subject (Dewey Decimal) and carefully annotated. Here are inexpensive listings with which everv teacher and ever-y prospective teacher should be familiar. Edward Nichols furnished your librarian with several hours of enjoyable and informative reading in his Zach Taylor's Little Army (Garden City, Doubleday, 1963.) The campaign in northern Mexico makes faSCInating reading, for it combines military achievement with political intrigue. A littleremembered span of our history is Illumined by this spritely account. For those who are engaged with American church history, Edwin Gaustad's Historical Atlas of Religion in America will prove to be a mine of information. This reference work presents the spread of religion from 1620 to 1960 and does so church by church. The volume is "indispensable for all who have a serious interest in American church history .' , -H. Sitz

To Walk Alone I love to walk along a lonely country road On an autumn day when the sky is so blue 1t hurts my eyes to look at it. And the trees are arrayed in kingly robes Of scarlet and orange and yellow, While farther down the path I see a tree Whose leaves are a deep, deep brown. I love to feel the breeze ruffling my hair And brushing lightly against my cheek. I love to hear it stir the leaves In the uppermost branches of the autumn trees. crackle Of the dead leaves beneath my feet. I love to see the ground all covered by the many-hued forms, Making it look like a gay and carefree patchwork quilt. I love to hear the crunch and

I love the peace of it, the- beauty of it. But most of all I love the holiness of it. For God is in the trees and wind and earth, And I know that even on that lonely country road I am, after all, not so very much alone. -Carol Kohl

SLOWPOKE'S GUY Dear Slowpoke's Guy, It is against my principles to tell secrets and not defend my own sex. Girls naturally like to keep the boys guessing and therefore come late. After waiting this "eternity," the boys are to appreeiate the girls all the more. In your case, however, I see you don't. In this instance, I have the following suggestion: Tell your girl that you will meet at-let's say-6:50. Okay! Then come to her dorm at 7:00.

What business is it of yours to be strolling past Centennial Hall alone at night? 4. How to make yourself unattractive? That's easy-play touch football! That

seems to be the most dangerous harmful game at this college. Sincerely yours, Miss D-Dear Miss D--,


My only problem is that I don't have any problems. I would like to get some problems so that you could solve my problems. Now, how Can I get some problems? PROBLEMLESS P.S. I hope my problem isn't such a hard problem that a good problem-solver like you can't solve my problem! Dear Problem less, You have a limited vocabulary+-that's your problem! Seriously, though, I have the same problem that you do. I don't have enough problems. Let both of us hope that you can think of some problems. That way I can ponder thoughtfully the thought-pondering problem you send me and can give you the needed advice.

With this issue we are inaugurating a new column entitled "Denology" -c-studiss and thoughts in our den. We hope that the atmosphere of our new den on the second floor of Old Main will inspire us to provide for you many interesting and intriguing thoughts. Our first column presents a clipping from the National Observer, which reported an address by the University of Chicago's director of admissions, Charles D. O'Connell. It has much food for thought not only for freshmen, but for all college students. " ... Let me assure you that there 'ideal college'-not even this one. Despite our catalog, you will encounter some professors who find undergraduates the lowest form of life and prefer to spend their time with test tubes or incunabula. No college is free of students who are there only to seek status and who will shun anyone bold enough to carry the classroom discussion into the dormitory. There is, in short, no college without its virtues and none without its weaknesses. "Do not ask too much of this college. Its faculty and its student body are made up of very fallible human beings; the classes are sometimes dull; they cannot all be lively; not all of the students are 'leaders of man.' "Do not expect each discussion in which you engage with faculty and students to be a kind of Socratic dialogue with each participant contributing a gem of wisdom unknown to the others, their cumulative perceptions piling up pyramid style until the class period enda+-and TRUTH rings out, signaling the end of the hour, a kind of intellectual pinball game at which you hit the jackpot every time. Life is not like that, in college or out. "1 sincerely hope then that you are here because you want to be here and because you have begun, at least, to answer for yourself, privately, the question 'why'!' To your education I hope that you bring a set of attitudes that will serve you well. "I shall not belabor the definition of what you should seek, of what a proper education consists, or repeat what you have been told a .hundred -crmes, that educatfon involves'. search for both knowledge and understanding, with the hope that both combine to produce wisdom. "But a proper education does, indeed, involve both. And to this pursuit I hope you bring curiosity, flexibility, humility, a respect for ideas, and the saving of a sense of humor. With them you cannot fail." -Jon Kietzer

The singing was led by the guests of honor, a trio from Bethany College, Mankato, who call themselves the "Travelers." The high point of the evening came when the students began improvising lyrics to "HeyLillie-La." A~ an added treat after the festivities, the food committee, with the help of Mr. Bilitz, provided a delicious snack in the form of punch and pizza. All reported a wonderful time.

Science Club Views Planets Fifteen members of the Phlogistons Science Club visited the campus of Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, on the 22nd of October. They were accompanied by Miss Cone and Professor Swantz. They arrived at the college at 7:15 p.m. and were taken to the Goodsell Observatory where they attended a lecture on the theory of telescopes by Robert T. Mathews, Assistant Professor of Astronomy. The group was then permitted to view Jupiter and Saturn through the I6-inch refractor telescope, the largest in Minnesota. Other features of the trip included a tour of the Gustavus Adolphus College at St. Peter. Here they were shown the new chapel and the Nobel Science Building.

College Choir I Elects Officers At a recent rehearsal of College Choir I, the members of the group elected officers for the 1963-64 school year. Heading the group as president is Ronald Shilling. Herb Wolff was elected vice president, and Mildred Horman' is serving as secretarytreasurer. After several ballotings, Bonnie Hoffman and Merlin Kruse were picked as librarians. The choir's first major performance of the school year will be the Christmas concert.

College IV Teachers' Conference Attended On October 24, 1963, the senior class of Dr. Martin Luther College attended the teachers' conference of the Minnesota District of the Wiseonsln Synod. St. Paul's Church in Arlington Was the host congregation for the two-day conference. ~cmr.,.Ctid6diB 811l4ed 101e t fee and doughnuts, which were served until 10:00 a.m. At that time all in attendance took seats in the church for the opening service and the beginning of the first session. Following committee reports and tbe reading of last year's minutes, College IV, for the most part, experienced its first conference essay, delivered by Prof. Lloyd Hahnke of DMLC. His topic was "Every Christian a Royal Priest." At dinner and during the free period that fallowed, some old acquaintances were renewed. Present at this conference from tbe thirdyear graduating class were Mary Surges, Beverly Grimm, Carole

Danner, Barb Weyland, and Anita Wagner. Opportunities to acquire free literature for teaching helps were taken by most of the visiting college seniors. Among the displays were an arithmetic series by ScottForesman; a reading, language, and ••• JJi·.-c::tiapI~.bJ'''..Boushton~ifi'lin; and an interesting arts and crafts display by a St. Paul stationery company. The afternoon session began at 1:45 with devotions. Prof. Morton Schroeder of St. Croix Lutheran High School then presented an essay on "Improving Techniques of Challenging the Gifted Child." An interesting discussion followed. After a half-hour recess, sectional meetings of the teachers in the Various grades were held to talk about the essay and how it applied to their grade levels. Supper at 5:00 p.m. concluded the opening day of the conference.

College II Hootenanny Time Hootenanny! The fun started at Flandrau pavilion Friday night, October 18. With logs ablaze in the fireplace, plenty of high spirits, and the promise of food to come, the college sophomores. gathered 'round to hear the Travelers, a folk-singing trio from Bethany at Mankato. The sophomore girls' sextet enter-

tained with a Cew selections, and a hilarious male quartet from the College III class brought down the house with its interpretations of popular songs. Fun continued with a free-for-all of songs and stories by the group. The evening drew to a close only after Mr. Bilitz arrived on the scene with varied refreshments.

Tuesday, June 18, 1963! After many weeks of prepar ation-r-obtuining passports, arranging passage to and from Europe, gathering and packing items needed for a three months' stay overseas--the long awaited day had come. At 10:00 a.m. we left the college campus on the two-hour drive to WoldChamberlain Field in Minneapolis, where we were to take the Northwest Orient Flight 216 to New York, scheduled to leave at 1:30 p.m. When we checked in at the weigh-in desk, we watched breathlessly as the scales indicated thirty-nine and one-half pounds, just one-half pound below the maximum limit. After saying "Good-by" to the family, we boarded the jet airliner about 1:10 p.m. At 1 :30 our plane taxied to the end of the runway. We fastened seatbelts. Then with a roar and powerful thrust we glided down the runway and in a matter of seconds were climbing into a clear blue sky. At 2 :30 we were crossing London, Ontario. At 4 :45 p.m. (E.D.T.) our jet landed at Idlewild Airport in New York. The downward glide to a landing was more noticeable than the takeoff. From there a bus and taxi carried us to the reserved room at the Hotel New Yorker on Manhattan Island. The convenient location of the hotel gave us an opportunity to see the busy areas of Manhattan Island. Pennsylvania Station, modeled after a Roman bath, was a short walk away. The following morning we spent traveling on foot to the American Express Office to pick up tbe tickets for the trip by sbip to Naples and visiting such places as Grand Central Park, St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York Central Library, 42nd and Broadway, and Times Square. In the alternoon' an orientation meeting for the members of our Fulbright group was scheduled at our hotel. A representative from the Education Department, Washington, D.C., discussed the summer program with us. At this meeting we had an opportunity to meet the members of the grolljP with whom we would spend the next very pleasant nine weeks. The Fulbright group included teachers of Latin from the following states: Michigan (3), New York (3), Pennsylvania (2), and one each from Missouri, Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Indiana. In the evening we had an opportunity to see Times Square and 42nd and Broadway under the lights. They're both prettier at night. We also heard the Purdue University Symphony Band at Radio City Music Hall. Thursday, June 20, was our sailing date. We arrived by taxi at 9 :30 a.m. at Pier 42, where our ship, the Italian liner, Leonardo da Vinci, was docked. Everyone Was excited going through customs and boarding the ship. There were many people on board, about half of whom were visitors bidding farewell to friends and relatives sailing to Italy. We spent a good share of the time getting settled in our cabin and looking over the ship. My cabin-mate was Mr. Frank Smith of Wayland, Massachusetts (cf. Life, March 22, 1963). He was also my roommate for the time spent at Rome and Naples. At 11:00 a.m. the first warning whistle sounded. Visitors began to leave. At noon we pulled away from the dock. Then we sailed down river, past the Statue of Liberty, out to sea. We had our noon meal at 1:45 p.m. and dinner at 7:45 p.m. The evening meal found many empty places. Seasickness! The passage through the Gulf Stream with its long swells took care of about one fourth of the occupants of the ship. Out of our group six of the nineteen were out of action. I thought I'd have to give in at the second noon meal, but suddenly I found my sea.egs, Every night a movie, alternating between English and Italian, was shown on board ship. It was enjoyable on deck to look at the clear sky with the stars. During the day we spent most or our time on deck or went

to the ship's auditoriumf to take Italian lessons (very elementary), to take a ship's tour, or nap in our bunk. The meals on board ship were excellent. Both the noon and the evening meal consisted of juice, hors d'oeuvree, soup (these were excellent), main dish (very often veal), salad (all right after you became used to an olive oil base), dessert, fresh fruit, beverage, and wine. Our waiter Michele gave us excel1ent service. After four days of seeing only the Atlantic Ocean, we welcomed the sight of the Azores Islands. Our ship passed right between the islands. They are very picturesque. The hillsides are neatly terraced. The small villages have a clean, white appearance. The Volcano Pico was a beautiful sight. Sea gulls, swooping down to pick up food thrown out by the galley crew, trailed our ship all the way through the islands. It took almost all afternoon to pass through the islands. The afternoon had passed all too quickly. In the evening before dinner our Fulbright group was invited up to the first class lounge (we traveled tourist class otherwise) by invitation of the ship's captain. The chief purser visited with our group. He and I conversed together in German. By the time we came back to the tourist class deck the Azores were tiny dots in the distance. After dinner a group of us got our daily exercise by marching around tbe deck. The next day the sky Was cloudy and there was a fine drizzle, our only rain on the entire trip across. It was a good chance to get some unfinished reading done. A day later we began to sight submarines and other ships. We were nearing the port of Gibraltar. When we pulled into the harbor, tbe haze lifted and the sun shone brightly. There was a Russian tanker in port. We anchored at 3 :30 p.m. so that passengers could leave the ship and come on board. We had been able to see the Atlas Mountains of Africa through the baze. While we - were anchored at Gibraltar (By the way, Prudential's picture of it is more impressive), small boats came out to our ship as fast as their occupants could row or their motors would carry them. Tbese boats were bringing sellers of rugs, baskets, scarves, lighters, figs, or octopi. These items were brought on board ship by means of rope and basket. All did a thriving business except the boat with octopi. If you had seen his cargo at the bottom of his boat, you'd understand why. Usually octopus is considered a delicacy. All of this was interesting to watch. When we left Gibraltar, we really entered the Mediterranean, which Was very calm and a beautiful blue. We were on this sea for two days. We finally received our passports, which we had given to the purser when we boarded ship. On June 28, Friday. we were' to land. That day, very early, we had our baggage ready for unloading at Naples. The sight of the Bay of Naples was breathtaking, It's a beautiful bay with a background of hills all around it. Capri and Ischia were on our right and left, respectively, but the former was not too visible through the haze. For the Same reason Mount Vesuvius was barely visible. A large crowd awaited our ship at the dock, most of them waiting for relatives whom they had not seen for a long time, or whom they had never seen. After a little confusion with disembarking and unloading the baggage, we were met by representatives of the American Academy in Rome. They finally managed to get us through the customs line. Thanks to the Academy's secretary, Princess Rospiglioei, who had some intluence to speed the procedure a bit. While we waited, all of us felt that the buildings on land had a sway. Those sealegs were still with us! After our baggage 'had been loaded, we climbed into our bus for the trip to Rome. -D. Brick

College Basketball: Preview of the Coming Season As has been the case in the past, this college basketball team will consist of more new faces than old. Coach Waters has a big rebuilding program ahead of him again this year. There are only four members of last year's squad returning and only two of these are lettermen, although both of these were starters last year. The returning starters are Jerry Zoellner, who last year looked very good at times but was inconsistent as a scorer, and Bob Kuehn, who has great potential. If Bob reaches his peak this year, he could very well be one of the best players in the conference. Merlin Wilde, who has a deadly left-hand jump shot, and Ed Sorgatz are the other members of last year's squad. Neither of them saw a lot of action last year, but they do have some experience. Among the new prospects are four members of last year's undefeated high school team. They are Dale Walz, Jim Tjernagel, Jim Dueblmeier and Jobn Tjernagel. Walz is a good ball handler and Can hit from almost anywhere on the floor. Jim Tjernagel

was a consistent rebounder and Scorer. Duehlmeier was a top reserve. He was a strong rebounder, but not too consistent in his shooting. John Tjernagel saw only limited action as a reserve, but seems to have good potential.

Very little is known ahout the rest of the prospects, but with a month of practice before the first game Coach Waters will get a good look at all of them. Anyone or several of these boys could earn a starting assignment. This group is made up of Carl Hefke, Joe Lequia, Leon Brands, Roger Sievert, Tim Pfitzer and Don Nolte. Coach Waters plans to stick with the 1-3-1 offense which he has used in the past with limited success. He says the reason for using this offense is to compensate for our team's lack of height when compared with the competition in the rest of the conference. The potential of this team is good, but it is the opinion of the editor that the success or failure DC the team v....iII depend primarily upon the ability of the rookies to adapt, with the aid of the coach, to the greater demands of college ball. Although a .500 season would be considered a successful one, this team could bring about a big surprise. However, the season could be as dismal as last year's was.

Men's Football Season Ends

Practice begins October 21. The first game is November 23 at Estherville Iowa Junior College, and the first home' game is November 26 against St. ?'aul Bible College. Good luck, Lancers! Eugene Baer

A charged-up Ram team did everything right and Jeffers seemed 1(I~t>in t he wake of enthusiasm. After a scoreless first period, Lu ther scored '"even times in the next two quarters, With a fantastic amount of desire and football savvy, the Luther team created good a number of Jeffers' fumbles. Jack Gronholz played a tremendous game, scoring four times, once on a l-yard run, again on a 30-yard pass play, and on runs of 75 and 80 yards. Allan Jeffers caught two or Hempel's passes for t.ouchdowns. These two plays covered 31 and 11 yards, tespectivelv. The other TD came after Quine.\' 'Wiley picked up one of scvcra l .JeITNS' fumbles and outraced two defenders (or 60 yards to the goal line. The only tirr.e the Jeffers' team was in the spotlight was in the fourth quarter when they marched to the Luther 9-yard line. But the Ham defense, which has been tough all year and Wt;S no less than tremendous against Jeffers, met the challenge and held the Wolves for four plays, thus preserving the shutout.


Starting at the beginning of the season, the sophomores continued through to the end of the season with their winning streak. Defeating both the freshmen and the juniors twice, they tallied up a 4 win, o lost, and 1 tie record. This tie came in their last game of the season, played against the juniors. The final score was 12-12. The freshman team showed a lot of spirit. but did not quite score enough. The team completed the season with .1. record of four Iosees. All three teams showed a great deal of enthusiasm for football this year, They are looking forward to playing again next year. Although there is hope for a regular football team eventually, intramural football will have to take its place for a few more years.

Girls' Softball Championship Narrows Having played their entire schedule, the girls' softball teams are now making up the many games that were rained out in the beginning of the season. Although the competition is fairly even among all of the teams, several teams have fought their way to the top of the list. Once the makeup games are completed, the champions will he chosen. Until that time, the winners remain anyone's guess. The Fumbles, led by Beth SchuetZ~, have won two and lost three. The Sportin' Coeds, under Leah Weber, have lost only one and totaled up four wins. Lois Gieschen's Softies have lost four and won one. The Angels, captained by Joan Enter, have won three and lost two. Although at present it would appear that the Sportin' Coeds have a good chance at first place, the next few games will tell for certain who the champion is.

Halloween Parties Haunting Success Spooks and witches were seen on campus during four October evenings. These spooks were participants in the annual Halloween festivities for the various classes in college and high school, which were held on consecutive evenings from October 22 through October 25. First of the parties was the high school freshman-sophomore party held on October 22. The sophomores were dressed as farmers, while the freshmen dressed as children of three and four years of age. Prizes for the most original costume were awarded in each class. The theme "Haunted House" was carried out in decorations and games. On the following evening the high school junior- senior party was held. The students dressed in costumes portraying famous historical or fictional characters. Masks were worn until judging was completed. A hootenanny featuring Klaus and Burt followed. Kiddie games, a scavenger hunt, and apple bobbing rounded out a fun-filled evening. The college freshman-sophomore party was held on October 24. The theme Was "Remember When?" and all were dressed as six-year-olds. A "Iantabulous" prize was awarded for the best costume. Entertainment consisted of kiddie games and group singing. The college junior-senior Halloween party goers, dressed as little boys and girls, brought baby pictures which afforded a game of "Guess Who?" The highlight of the evening was the appearance of the Junior Girls' S9xtct and tnt: Minor Thirds, a group of junior boys. Lunch, the climax of each evening, was served under the direction of our able and hardworking Mr. Hugo Bilitz.

With the beginning of the erection of the new women's dormitory •. a vastly extended facility plan was begun at :DMLC. This plan will continue to 11'0was more space b&comes necessary and funds are realized. So far there has been re- '. markable progress attained this fall·~. in erecting the first new building of J the campus expansion project. The ~ women's dormitory is located direct- i Iy west of the existing tennis courts at DMLC, parallel to Center Street. Many students now at our school and alumni readers are probably wondering hO"9{ our campus will look when this plan is completed. The buildings we. now have that will be ecnsidered permanent faciUties will -be the Administration Building, the Music Center, Centennial Hall, and the boiler house, garage and ,shops. Existing buildings which may eventually have to make way for other buildings are the Men's Dormitory, the dean's house, the Music Hall or Pra~tice Hall, Old Main, and Hil,crest Ha.l, West Hall and the professorage-oeeupied by the Profesaor Schultz family will be subject to relocation. Plans call for new constructions on these sites. . The second building of our expansion project will serve a triple purpose, It will consist of a dining hall, student union, and gymnasium, Its location will be directly south.,ekt of.the Administration Building. on the site where West Hall·,-now .tands. ", Parallel .to ..Center ;Street'.'and It Is probably'worth notiDg that ao far the Chapel Fund haa ilOWD to $18,530 and that th. Organ Fund, which will be used to supply the organ for the new .ehapel, now has reached $29,285.00. This is ODe of the many new buildingshoped to be erected in the indefinite future. A classroom building is planned eventually to be located between Centennial Han and the Music Center. Another classroom building will be located to the rear of the Music.-Of - Praetiee Hall, directly across from the Muoio Center and .parallel to it. More classroom spaee will be provided in the area where the Men's Dormitory and Dean Habnke'a house now stand, All of these claasroom buildings wiD beconnected via corridors. and will form a U-sbaped plan which finally is connected to the present Music Center on its south end. The 'men will have' completely new dormitorjes. 'The second one will be added to tbe first as the need' for more male living quarters becomes evident. These buildings will be erected acrOSSthe road to the south from the boiler house and garage into the area now used' for buchail. . Two more women's dormitories wiil be built.

Electronic computers play an outstanding influential role in modern society, a role which is becoming .ever greater with the advance of SCientific knowledge and its consequent '.'pplications to computers. Much Information of a wide variety is fed into these machines, which in turn organize, syste~tize, generalize and, finally, apply these facts. What kind of information may computers be constructed to dispense? Might they reveal deep, dark secrets never before known in the past? Might they serve to solve lengthy and involved problems which could not previously be satisfactorily solved by a human being? Or might they' delve into the future and make quite accurate predictions concerning forthcoming events, especially regarding certain statistics? -Varied types of computers at one time -or' another perform all of these tasks. Yet. there is a limitation to the application of the knowledge which is incorporated into these otherwise exceedingly useful ma-

Severalvblographles of personalities have been added to our somewhat thin coverage of American history during the past week. Robert Seeger's And Tyler Too (N.Y., MeGraw-HiU,..1963)brings to life the tenth president of"the United States, who hitherto has been little but the tag-end of a political slogan'. The book is rather forbidding in length (671 pages), but when the reader overcomes the obstacle of length, the volume makes good in bringing into being two interesting people, John and Julia Tyler, and the society of which they were a part. The volume shows careful research,' but does not allow that characteristic to be a burden to the reader. A second biography, Peter Lyon's Succeee Story, the, Life and Time. of 5.5. McClur .. (N,Y., Scribners, 1963) causes the "Muckraker" era in' our history to stir into life. This eccentric newsman with his ability to ferret out and to contract for the literary productions of a lively stable of writers in a colorful period of American history makes a very interesting subject for this biographer. Although the book seems over-long for its subject matter, it does give the reader a realistic view of a rowdy period in our country's history: A third biography ofnote is Allan Nevin's two-volume story of, Hamilton Fiah, the secretAry of state during Grant's administrations. :-(N.Y., Ungar, 1936-1957) This biography won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and well deserved' that distinction. Based upon a voluminous collection of correspondence and a carefully detailed diary kept by Fish, this record of eight momentous years in American, history makes informative and entertain-

ing reading. George F. Howe uses our twenty-first president as his subject in Cheater A. Arth ...r; a Quarter-Century of Machine Politic •• (N.Y., Ungar, 1957) Here an able president is rescued from political obscurity and set in a central position during an eventful, four years of our history. The chapters' on civil service reform and the tariff are especially well done. NormanBeasley's Mary Bak.r Eddy, is a biography of the founder of Christian Science by one who is not a member of that group. The volume shows careful study of original sources and an attempt to write Mrs. Baker's story from an objective point of 'view. (N. Y., Duell, 1963) 1 am not convinced that he has succeeded too well. It would seem to me that in many places the author shades his objectivity in favor. of t~e religious inventor he is describing. However, he does give a good account of the early history of this 'sectarian group. A book that has stirred up much discussion in educational circles is James B. Conant's The Education of American Teach .. era. (N.Y., McGraw~Hill. 1963) In the current controversy on teacher-training be-' tween academic and education faculties, Dr. Conant's chief contribution is to define and high-light the issues. At the same time he makes a number of specific suggestions for improvement in the field, many of which will receive hearty approval of most readers. Here and there we may doubt the wisdom of his dictums, but Dr. Conant is always a pleasant author with whom. to agree-or disagree. -H. Sitz

'If ~you feel that the life of a teacher involves many occupational hazards and frustrations, just visualize this poor fellow's predicament. After a recent tornado, a building in town was damaged. A construction worker was engaged to repair it. When he got to the building, he found the tornado had knocked some bricks from' the top. He rigged up a beam and pulley and hoisted up a couple of barrels oC bricks. After he repaired the building, there were any bricks .left .over. He hoisted the barrel up again and secured the line at the bottom. Then he went up and filled the barrel with the extra bricks and returned to the bottom and cast off the line. Unfortunately, the barrel of bricks was heavier than he was and when the barrel started down, he started up. He hung on. Halfway up he met the' barrel coming down, and he received a severe blow on the shoulder. He then continued to the top, banged his head against the beam and got his finger jammed in the pulley. When the barrel hit the ground, it burst its bottom, allowing the bricks to spill. He was now heavier than the empty barrel and so started down again at high speed. Halfway down, he met the barrel coming up and received severe injuries to his shins. When he hit the ground, he landed on the' bricks, getting several painful cuts from the sharp edges. At this point he must have lost his presence ot mind, because he let go of the line. The barrel then came down, giving him another heavy blow on the head and putting him in the hospital. With this fellow's luck, I'd venture a guess that he wasn't even covered by an .insuranee policy, , (Thanks to the former Niecy Adams of Minneapolis from whose writings this was adapted.) -Jon N.

The Star How wonderful that brightest star Guiding those who sought the Child, Bringjng them to see that Baby Where be slept so small and mild. How beautiful its beaming light, As to shepherds there came near Angels !Jingingpraise and glory, Alleluias·tinging clear. How the Wise Men followed gazing At that shimmering gleam of old, Till it brought them to the Infant Where they laid their gifts of gold. I, too, tonight can seek that Baby, The angels' song my heart can sing. I can be a gentle shepherd Hearing alleluias ring. I can be an Eastern gentile Foll'wing forth that heavenly light.
