MESSENGER ~ New VJm, Minneaot.

LLL Presents Antigone ed. Antigone feels a moral obliga· tion to bury her brother and does so, against the king's command. In the end she publicly declares her guilt. However, Creon relents on his statement of punishment and entombs her alive in a cave.

One of the most plentiful commodities on this or any campus is talk. Last spring some of the collegiates decided to try channeling some of tbis talk into a debate club and the beginnings were made. This group is under the auspices or the Luther Literary League. under the direction of Professor Schroeder who was a debater in college, and under the chairmanship" of Lois Luetke. The members of the orranizational committee spent the summer writing to various colleges aeeking ol'lanizational information and were quite 8ucceos(ul.

Sophocles' Greek play, Antirone, which has been opened to the pub-lic, will be presented Saturday, November 28th at 8:00 P.M. It will be presented in the DMLC auditorium. In the past month, the forty performers, under the direction of Mr. Rahn, have put in many long, hard hours in order that they could present this tragic drama. Besides the newness of such work on campus, the use of orchestration to express emotion throughout the play is an experimental thing. The staging also is completely new. All the costumes were hand-made, with Sue Smith at the head of that committee. Wha t does the cast and proposes with Coach Dallmann after undefeated aeaaon ducer hope to achieve by this production?

Now the members are doing research on the national topic, with the end in view of debating with Bethany College of Mankato and Concordia College of St. Paul in the spring. The national debate topic this year is "Resolved: Tbat the Federal Government should establish a national program of public work for the unemployed." One problem confronting this group, as In many things here at DMLC, is the lack of men. Any one interested in this fascinating sport is invited to join. Men, this would be your golden opportunity to have the last word. Good luck, debaters. Keep talking!

What happena alter the supplies reach the college kitchen? Vast quantities of food must immediately be canned or frozen to prevent spoilage. Many items arrive already canned and are uaed when needed. One may ask are little items worth donating? The answer is evident in the students' joy over foods that give the home-touch, such as fresh vegetables, preserves, relishes, and fruits. Cookies are frequently brought in and distributed free to all at the Student Union. All of the donors' gifts, be they great or small, are sincerely appreciated.

How would aU you hopeful house-wives like to bake 6000 loaves of bread in two and a half months? Most of you would groan at the mere thought of it, but not "Bud the Baker," because that is jUBt what he does. Not only does be bake bread, but every tasty little morsel of baked goods that passes through our lips is there because of his effort and skill.

Highlighting the afternoon was a visit to the Mayo Medical Museum where such outstanding demonstrations as the "transparent man," and the heart lung by-pass machine were viewed. This latter machine is used in heart operations to continue the body functions and thus provide necessary time for surgery. After visiting St. Mary's Hospital, the largest privately owned hospital in the world, the club headed back to New Ulm to do their make-up work.

Recital Presented Miss Laurine Zautner, member of the D MLC music staff, presen ted a piano recital November 23 at 8:00 p.m. Her repertoire consisted of selections by Beethoven, Debussy, and Schubert, and also included a piece entitled, 'Sonata in One Movement" composed by IMiss Zautner herself. The recital was a pleasurable experience for all in attendance,

The plot of Antigone's love life is also interwoven throughout the play•. Creon's son, Hamon, loves Antigone. When he finds out she has been banished, he searches for her. Meanwhile Creon feels a moral obligation, within himself, to bury Antigone's dishonorable brother. He does so and returns to the cave, to' remove the banishment from Antigone. Upon entering, Creon' sees Antigone, hanging by the neck-e dead-and his grief-stricken son lamenting. In despair Hamon tries to kill Creon. His attempt is futile. Hamon then commits suicide. Creon returns home where he learns that his wife, Eurydice, upon bearing the news of the death of her 80n, bas also taken her life. Creon is alone.

Bud starts work at seven eve.ry morning, that is, every morning he ~ doesn't oversleep. He is on th~ job j until the evening meal. Besides his ' 6000 loaves of bread, he bakes 60 pies a month. Now these pies are not just those found in a regular pie tin, but these pies completely cover his baker sheets. We can't forget about the cookies he bakes. There are 400 dozen of them a month. So you can see Bud is pretty busy, and the most important thing of all is that he enjoys his work. When asked why, he said he just liked it: that'. ail. Renville, Minn., is the home of the DMLC Baker Man. It was here that he fir'Bt started baking. Before he came to us, he spent several years in Renville, Redwood Falls, Jackson, Wis., and one year in Alaska. An experienced and well 'qualified baker, that's Bud. What would we do without him?

Finally Winter Finally, it's really winter. Everyone has been waiting for it since September and now it seems to have made it's entrance on Friday, November 20. Winter actually brings about many changes in campus life. For one thing, my next door neighbor has turned into a little weatherwoman. She is quite concerned that I know what is happening outside, so keeps me very well infonned. Any little change is recorded in her mind and reported to me as soon as she finds me. It's a channing little set up, especially at six-thirty in the morning. It is quite evident that the campus grounds are covered with I~nowl but we aren't too observant If we think that is all. The campus is covered with students. Now that doesn't sound like a big discovery, does it? or course, one must realize that these students are either sitting in the snow or lying face down in a little drift just before they reached the safety of some building. They shouldn't be too disappointed that they didn't quite make it; it they look inside they will most likely- find someone wbo slipped around a corner. It's tru,ly amazing how snow and ice go about teaching us coordination. Oh yes, we must not forget about the steps on the way out of the dining hall. Some of us are becoming rather skilled at coming down those on one leg, others of us seem to think it's better to still use both legs, and still others have found it easier to sort of bounce along in a sitting position. In any event, we all descend those steps in some manner. Another thing which the students enjoy in winter is the drifts of snow that pile up behind and around the cars. Drive out of the parking lot and you will leave the most beautianow because now if higher authorities wish to know if you used your car, you needn't take the time to tell them because your tire tracks give them all the information they need. Of course, they do have to remember whose car was where but once that is done, they're all set. It's quite a trick to drive over the snow without leaving tracks of any kind.

The walks downtown are perhaps more healthful than those of any season. You always come back with such nice rosy cheeks. Funny, how you can't seem to move very fast, but you look healthy anyway.

Welcome Newcomer The Measenger staff was elated to receive Volume I, Number 1 of The Pioneer Jour ... nal, a school newspaper put out by the pupils of Zion Lutheran School, Mobridge, South Dakota. We guessed that behind this venture was someone who still couldn't rub the printer's ink off her fingers. Who could be more interested in organizing and staffing a newspaper and doing an excellent job with tbe first copy than our last year's editor-in-chief, " Miss Anita Lemke, the principal at Zion's. Our congratulations go. out to ber and ber staff for a job well done. If our past experience with Anita as the "Boss Man" means anything, we can predict a brilliant future for The Pioneer Journal.

I Lead Two Lives This statement could well have been made by one of the new members of our music faculty, Mr. Charles Luedke, who during the "reek gives piano and organ lessons here at D.M.L.C. and on week-ends serves the musical needs of Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Minneapolis.

Mr. Luedke, who was born in Hutchinson, Minnesota. "a number of years ago." moved to Minneapolis with, his parents at the age of four. Since then he has attended Pilgrim Lutheran Church and has played the organ at that church since the age of 14. He attended Central High in Minneapolis and graduate-d as valedictorian of his class. He then went on to the University of Minnesota where he majored in education. He received his Bachelor of Science degree with honors in 1963 and went right on to work for his Masters degree in education. His area of concentration was English although h!s degrees entitle him to teach also mathematics and German. He received his master's de-gree this August and then came, here to teach in our music department.

liThe Three Tutors"

TUTORS, L to R: Habben, Pautz and Cross. Tutor Larry Cross, a native of Grand Island, Nebraska, comes to DMLC from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wisconsin. Tutor Cross spent his high school days at Northwestern Lutheran Academy, Mobridge, South Dakota, and received his college education at Northwestern College, Watertown, Wis. Duties at DMLC consist of high school Algebra I and Latin 1. A large portion of his work consists in assisting the other tutors in dormitory management. Basketball is one of Tutor Cross' enjoyments; he was on the high school team at Mobridge. He is looking forward to basketball season at DMLC. His spare time is consumed in the repair of automobiles. After a year at the seminary, Tutor Kermit Habben joins the staff of DMLC instructors. A native of Raymond, . SOuth Dakota, he received the same preparatory education as did Tutor Cross.

Joins Faculty Another new member of the DMLC music faculty is Miss Leurine Zautner who hails from West Bend, Wisconsin. As a member of the music staff, she is in charge of giving piano lessons to approximately fifty-one students whom she enjoys working with very much. Mlss Zautner attended Lawrence College, Appleton, Wisc., where she majored in piano and minored in music theory and composition.' Upon completing two years of post-graduate work at the University of Illinois, she received her master's degree last June. Miss Zautner enjoys teaching at DMLC because she feels. that, on the whole, the piano students of DMLC have a greater sense of responsibility toward their courses than many of those pursuing the same courses in a state university. She was also favorably impressed with the new music center and all its facilities. On the whole, she is very happy with all aspects of her new position and states, "I enjoy being at this end of the desk."

In expressing his gratefulness to his Lord and Savior for His gracious blessings on his past years of study, Professor Sievert said it was his hope and prayer to continue his advanced study at some future date. He has been admitted to the doctoral program at the University of Minnesota at the present time.

in Hong Kong are either English or Chinese schools, depending on which language is used for teaching the majority of classes. Most primary schools are Chinese; teaching English only as one of the subjects in the curriculum. The majority of secondary schools tend to be English, however, since many students Ieel a good knowledge of English will enable them to take advantage of better job opportunities. The problem of the secondary school, then, is one of transitionadjustjng the students to use this "foreign language" (for as such it has been taught) as the medium in which they must do the majority of their studying and listening. Such subjects as history or geography must now be learned in English; yet it dare not be of a lower standard or the students will be unable to compete with their contemporaries attending Chinese secondary schools. English language text books also present a' problem. Although a number of them have been written for the Hong Kong school system, most of them are still textbooks used at the same level in British schools. Thus, many of our Chinest students must learn from and try to comprehend texts at the same level as their British counterparts in England, to whom English is the mother tongue. Truly, this problem E enough to keep the local aspirin makers in business.

Spectatorship is a very important aspect of the sports' world. With basketball season upon us here at D.M.L.C., let us examine these persons who are commonly known as "the fans." . Who are these fans? They are very easy to recognize once you have seen them. Has anyone ever approached you and enthuaiastieally tried to perSuadeyou to attend a certain game? No doubt, this person was a fan. Even though many spectators attend games for various reasons, not aU are truly fans. A fail will be seen engulfed with the sport, the calls, and the cheers. He. will not sit there as a "bump on a log," but he will yell and cheer and show his appreciation (or the team. Where are these fans to be found? Most students think that just by comingto a game they show bow enthusiastic they are about the sport and what avid fans they are. True, these people must be considered as fans but as to whether they are avid or not is debatable. What happens to all these fans after all the cheers' are over and another day arrives? If they are real fans, they will be found at the meetings o( the pep club, planning pep fests, and working on committees to promote sports on our campus. For those who have the abilities, pep band is offered as a voluntary organization which aids the fans in their cheering. With all this talk about (ans, I suppose that many of you are wondering, "Of what use are fans?" It seems as if every speech that a player of any team makes- ends with a plea to the assembly to eome to the game and cheer the team on to a victory. Perhaps the exact words of specificcheers cannot be heard by the players, but the supporting noise of a crowd of fans can be heard by them. A lack of that support does not aid in the building of the morale o( a team. Through posters, moral support, and working on committees for homecoming and pep fests, the team sees the evidences of how much fans appreciate all their extratlme and effort to form this team. Now that this "sport" of being a fan seems rather one-sided, you are wondering just why you should become a fan too. It is not a one-sided proprnlition,thougb. Certainly, it is easily seen that by attend~ng ~ game and cheering you are allowing yourself to release tbat energy which IS often lying dormant, waiting to be freed. Sports enthusiasm and spectator pa.rticipation are a pleasant diversion from the constant routine of studying. This diversion causes the fan to enjoy himself and to relax. By staying in your own private world of neglect of sports, you miss ~n exciti~g and. rewarding part of campus life and campus fun. To avoid becoming a true fan is to become a creature in a shell. So with basketball games on our calendar, let us not forget that epectatorahip is a vital sport in itseU. To thoroughly enjoy your position as a spectator, you should become a fan as well and back your team all the way. Let's give it a try. Okay? •. okavl

The five-pointed star is connected with the festival of Epiphany which proclaims the manifestation of the Christchild to the Genttlea. The "wise men from the East" sought the royal infant of David's line when they observed the star. I.N.R.I. is the abbreviation for Iesus Nazarenus Rex ludaeorum (Jesus of Nazareth, Yfng of the Jews).

His Name Shall Be Called

EMMANUEL Christmas at DMLC is a joyous- time of year. This year the theme is: "His Name Shall Be Called Emmanuel." As in past years, the chapel area hears this theme. As one views the cross, crown and star, the thought is that Christ's mission here on earth was not completed with the Christmas story but must be connected w ith His Death. Christ's misaion on earth was fulfilled with His death and resurrection. It is because of this t.hat we find our greatest joy in Christ's birth. With these thoughts in mind, the high school and college choirs will present the 1964 concert. Tbe evenings of December 17th and 18th, at 8:00 P.M., have been set eefde for the service. The pre-service music will be provided by the DMLC concert band, under the direction of Mr. Roy ,Zimmermann. Their selections include: Noel Suite. , Daquin-Gordon Carol of the Drum. _ Davis-Werle Overture to "The Messiah". ............ . Handel-Cailliet The service will commence with the processional hymn, "Hark the Herald Angels 'Sing," accompanied by organist, Darlene Hauch.

Latest Invention Dear Students of Dr. Martin Luther College: It has come to my attention (1've been snooping around) that with the approach of the Christmas season you have again become involved in the inevitable business of Yuletide decorating. Therefore I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my latest, most practical invention, which is not yet on the public market (because I can't get a patent for it), the Decorating Machine. The Decorating Machine is capable of decorating anything anywhere, indoors and out. Lawns, chapels, balls, and rooms can all be decked with bough. of holly by the mere touch of a button: lightstringing, tree-decking, and greensbanging will no longer be a problem. The decorating machine is also very adept at working on smaller projects, such as crepe-papering, snowflake-cutting, and gift-wrapping. Attachments are available for more specialized tasks such as napkin stuffing, cardboard cutting, and spray-painting. This year as a speclal added attraction I have de-

What's the Forensic? "You mean you've never heard of the Forensic? Just a little? Well, (orget everything you've heard and listen to this." The Forensic is a Luther Literary League publication in which original stories, plays, poems, essays. and other writings of DMLC students are published. This year the staff is trying something new. and 80 the Forensic will be published in a bound booklet form only in the spring. In an endeavor to raise its horizons, the Forensic will contain not only work submitted directly to the staff, but will contain well written work supmitted in the fields of dogmatics, history, education, or in any other collegecourse wheresuch work is required. It is the League's hope that this book will eventually represent the best works of the DMLC student body for a particular school year. In the spring. those who have contri1::utedto the publication, and the Luther Literary League mem~ bers, will be the first to receive conies. After this, there will be a limited supply on hand for the students. The staff hopes this plan will succeed, but it will only do so with the cOOperationof the professors and students. It should encourage greater effort on the part of the writers. Not only will the prof... sors be happy to receive work suitahle to recommend for publication, but &<) will the staff. Only the students can make this Issue of the Foren.ic worthwhile. (Oireet contributions may be placed In the box In the library)

Green Valley Singers Perform for DMLC On December 6, at 4:00 p.m., DMLC students gathered in the gym to bear the Green Valley Singers. Organized and directed by Mr. David Adickes, the Singers were :first formed as an English madrigal group. Now the "twelve-member plus string bass" group bas branch.. ed oft' into folk music after the manner of the New Christy Minstrels.

The Green Valley Singers came to us from Onalaska Luther High, Onalaska, Wis. They treated students to such lOngs as "The Wagoner," .IThe Cat," "Susianna," and many others.

The ,Singers were organized just last year, but already they have proved themselves worthy of recognition. They 'have participated in singing contests, and appeared at the 1964 annual "Oktoberfest" in La Crosse. They generally sing on request by various organizations. Mr. David Adickes is a DMLC graduate, having received his diploma from the college department in 1960. He arranges most of the music'" sung by the group. Mr. Adickes plans to insure the permancy of the Green Valley Singers by training others to replace those who graduate. Appearing with the Green Valley Singers were the Lu-Hi'a, an octet from DMLHS. This group is not new on campus, as it -haa entertained for last year's high school Activities Banquet, and has appeared at VariOUIhigh school functions. The Lu-Hi's have no formal direction; they select their own music and work it up by tbemselves. Dressed alike in navy blazers, the group led off the afternoon's entertainment with "Cotton Fields," the ever-popular "More," and a Christy Minstrel number, "The Drinkin' Gourd." Thialaat was accompanied by Greg Lenz on the electric guitar. The group consists of Carol Rodewald, Barbara Raabe, Holly ZiUmer, Jane Ilngrcdt, Paul Jacobs, Greg Lenz, Steve Gauger, and Art Koepsell,

In keeping with tradition, the various campus dormitories held their respective Christmas parties on December 11, the last Friday before the start of vacation. At 8:00 p.m., dormitory residents gathered in their main lounges for an ,evening of games, .rt"freshments, and songs, particularly carols of the season.

Prof. Brick does plan, however, to keep in contact with the field through oceaaional courses at the University of Minnesota and correspondence courses at the University of' Wisconsin. He also has a desire to do some work in the lield '01 German., When .. ked if he had had any outstanding teachers, Prof. Brick replied that he had many of them. Dr. Paul MacK endrick, author of The Mute Stones Speak, and The Greek Stone. Speak, as well 88 of several other books on archaeology, was perhaps foremost in his opinion. While in Rome, Prof. Brick was privileged to study under Dr. Lionel Casson, lecturer, on the nationa I T.V. classroom series, and author of Ancient Mariners (in our library). Some of the other great men he studied under include Dr. Ernest Nash of Rome, famous for bis archaeological research on the Roman Forum; Dr. .Henry Rowell; Dr. Frank Brown, formerly of Yale; and Dr. D'Orsi of Stabiae. Italy. All these men are well known for their archaeologial research, excavations, and writings. Prof. Brick noted that the really great individuals are humr·le, down to earth, willing to listen, and ready to help. They are also willing to discuss differences of opinion, Reflecting in general upon his study, Prof. Brick remarked that it was an enjoyable experience. Some of his courses were excellent. some weren't. depending on the teacher. He found the University of Wisconsin campus to be one of the most beautiful in the U.S. because of ita location along the shore of Lake Mendota. The Italian trip, and the visit to Gennany and AUBtria in conjunction with it, will always he the outstanding thing in his memories.

Time Out What are some of the reasons why a certain individual would want to be on a baskett-all team? The same reasons could apply to any sport, but since we are in this season, we will use basketball as an example. People need extra-curricular activities. One cannot stay in the do~itory night after night, studying. An outside activity helps one meet different individuals in the school, and, in the case of basketball, people outside the school. One can learn much about people and how to get along with them. As a member of a basketball team, one has to be able to work together with the other players. The saying "United we stand, divided we fall" goes for sports, also. The members of a team must learn to work together. Even if they lose the game, they have gained experience in the mistakes and in working" ith one another as a team. People need physical exercise-sports ~r~vid~ this. They are a~ excellent outlet for that energy stored up after sIttmg In classes. They grve a person the chance to relax and forget about studying for a while. Sports build the sound body while studies build the sound mine. ' There is also another very good reason for wanting to be on a team, and that is to show what one really thinks of his school. A member of the team (and the fans as well) reflects the school in a number of ways. It follows naturally that anyone who is proud of his school will want to leave the very best impression possible where ever he goes. This applies not only to dress and manners, l-ut also to sportsmanship on the playing floor. Then we may say that one would want to join a team for the JOY of extra-currlcular activities, for the satisfaction of working witb others in a team, for the benefits of physical exercise, and for the opportunity to favorably represent one's school.

Rams Battle In Close Games

Rams Lose to Winthrop 55-59 The Ram's first basketball game this year ended. on a sour note, but not because the team wasn't fighting. The first Quarter was mostly defensive, with both Luther and Winthrop playing a tight game. The score was Luther 6-Winthrop 9. The Rams picked up in the second quarter and had fairly good ball handling, even though they fell short on rebounds. Three free throws by Steve Schwichtenberg and three field goals by Gary Wille boosted the Rams to a 26-26 tie at half-time. The Warriors eased out in front slowly in the third quarter and gained seven points on Luther, IE'8ving the score with Luther 35, Winthrop 42. However, the R ems were not to be defeated so easily, and put on a hard press in the fourth quarter to whittle the Warriors' margin down to four points. The final score was Winthrop 59-Luther 55.

"From Your Valentine"

Editorial The Lee Plan FEDTTR If you've never heard of the Lee Plan, don't feel uninformed; it's not exactly the most publicized movement of the day. Recently it came to our attention through a leaflet sent out by its sponsoring organization in California. Its full title is The Lee Plan For Economic Democracy Through Tax Reform. Quite impressive, is it not? But let's examine it a bit further. The Lee plan protest the power of the eo-called Economic Royalist. This refers to the "1% of adults who own 76% of all corporate stock in the U.S." and " ... through ownershipand control of all banking houses. insurance companiesand stock corporations exercises management over virtually 100% of the nation's, entire personal wealth." Just what are these Economic Royalists doing, according to the Lee Plan? " ... they use the great power of their monopoly of wealth to systematically irj8uence and' absolutely control our Government, thus depriving us of our. life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." So goes the ,c,omplaint,couched in terms that have represented the American ideal since the Declaration of Independence. Yes. this'Ieaflet is designed to rouse every red-blooded American to action; it asks everyone to write to his congressman. ' Surely by now every reader is anxious to learn the "solution" advocated I:>y the Lee Plan. It calls for tax laws that will: (1) Limit the ownershipof wealth by anyone person to one million dol.. lars. (~) -Lbn\t- -annual




ter taxes, to one hundred thous.. and dollars. And this, dear readers, is going to "defeat the Economic Royalists," "establish justice. promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity!" Strange that this should be mailed to' the Me•• enger, you say? Not really. Its advocates claim that the Lee Plan "should be on the front page of every newspaper in America." John D. Lee. apparently the originator of the plan. gave a speech at a California college. This speech. duplicated. was also sent to the Me.seng,er, and we presume that many more like it are being 'presented in colleges and universities. Colleges seem to be seed-beds for radical thought. The whole plan appeals to patriotism and the pocketbook. Finally. what can be said, except that which we have always maintained,:one needs an education to decide for himself the truth of this and all other similar movements. We can only hope that the American people will have the wisdom to separate truth from propaganda. ....DelorisMaichle

Junto Jottings

o Valentine, 0 Valentine, From where did you come way back in time? Your origin is lost in antiquity I guess you'll remain a mystery.

Yes, it finally happened! A name has been found: for the D¥LC organization known up to this time as the current events discussion group

But Valentinus, a Roman priest, is history, Perhaps, maybe, could it be This early. brave Christian martyr Is really the Valentine's Day starter?

From a number of sugg'eBtions, the members voted to adopt Junto as their official name. The word itself may strike a familiar note with many a student of American literature. It was the name of a similarly purposed group . in Philadelphia which was formed by Ben Franklin and some of his eolleaguee. Both groups aim to discuss current problems and the manner in which they affect the membership. Likewise, our Junto, as did the original organization, opens its doors to everyone-you need not be a ber to attend any of the rneetinp. Watch for notice of the next meeting at which the current Viet Nam situation will be discussed.

During the Christian persecutions he was arrested; Against the Roman gods he protested; In the jailor's daughter a friend he did find. Legend says her sight was restored, for she was blind. Concerning his faith, Emperor Cladius II he did impress, But to Roman gods, Valentinus would not confess. Before his execution, the jailor's daughter no one could find, Valentinus signed her farewell letter, "From Your Valentine." Years later church festivals and Roman holidays tangled, Out of the confusion came a holiday new-fangled. So down through the centuries we can still say, February fourteenth is the observance of Valentine's Day.


In the seventeenth century a new custom started in our land, Sending paper Valentines decorated by the sender's hand. The verses of the homemade cards were the easiest part, For Cupid'. Annual Charter would give you a start. In 1849. Esther Howland at the age of twenty Started to make Valentines in quantity; commercially. A one hundred thousand dollar enterprise accomplishedby her, And to think she remained, pardon the expression,a spinster.

Those who in quarrels interpose must often wipe a bl~dy. n9~. '

-I,ndays when career women were frowned upon, She produced Valenttnee as if she had a magic wand. Cards went hand to hand down the table-an assembly line, Wonders'! all this sixty years before Henry Ford's time. Flowers, cards, and candy-today's customs, you know, And above the mystery and history I did show, Of these thoughts you may ponder when in time You too, will write, "From Your Valentine!" -John

All this, however, brought me no closer to the missing ingredient. The mental gymnastics ordinarily executed in the preservation of cranial fitness proved futile. All. of the expended energy was for naught. As time wore on, a sound case was developing to disprove the basic tenet that philosophers are thinkers; they are merely the subjects of inspiration at an opportune moment. And that is exactly the procedure one musl. follow in the search for a new "-ism" to complete his batch of fame. "The world will little note nor long remember what is said here," but Polonianism shall live forever and all time. To practice Polonianism takes time and dedicated practice, forethought, skill, and courage. Once one catches on to the technique, it is never lost, though one might very well wish it could be. So unless one is of certain mind, stable constitution, and undying fortitude, he had best refrain from embarking into the depths of the world's least earth-shaking ism.of all time. The concept itself, inspired by one of Shakespeare's most brilliantly ludicrous figures, to put it briefly, for "brevity is the soul of wit." can be of the greatest use to students. plagued by long papers to compose with a minimum of thought content to spread throughout. In essence, it deals with expression through one of two basic mediums! the oral and the written. Through either of the two one may give expressionto his ideas in a pattern which employs a voluminous and ceaseless fiow of vocabulary in such a man.. ner as to elude complete comprehension on the part of one's avid and supposedly inter_

Lancers In Losing Streak

Time Out

Much has been said about "school spirit", but little has been done about it. It seems that whenever a school's teams are winning this phrase isn't heard as much as when they are losing. When a team starts losing the . burden ot defeat taIls on the tans and supporters ... "You just didn't yell enough!" Shouldn't a team playing away tram the home court, without any tans roaring trom the stands, win any games? The point is, that the end results, winning, in the final analysis, stems from coaching strategy and individual player ability, sometimes called "team effort." We all realize that the number or tans sitting in the stands isn't going to determine the winner. How much weight should be placed on this influence or the tans in winning games? • Let's take our own case here at Dr. Martin Luther College. The team record stands at 2 wins and 13 loses. Following the pattern, the questions have been asked, "Where is the school spirit?" and "Why don't you BUp· port our team more?" Is the tan influence so small as to be losinggames [or us here at DMLC? Maybe if we had larger turnouts tor our home games the team would start bringing a few more victories our way. "School spirit" is low here at the college and might just be the cause at our poor showing, or it might notl More fans, yelling louder, at our games should give our team the extra boost to win. We all have the common . feeling that our team has the player ability to win, and with more support from the fans maybe this goal will be realized. The cheer goes, "We got the pep, stearn, coach, team ... " •.. all we need now is more tans and we'll win. -Boyd

The Lancers kept up with Rochester for 231: quarters, but fell be" hind when Jones really started to hit. Poor shooting and floor mistakes also hurt the Lancers, and with starter Jack Gronholz fouling out in the first half, the scoring punch was missing. DMLC Vetter Tjernagel , , .

Teams Take Lead In Intramurals

As its annual play' production, the Luther Literary League has chosen Oscar Wilde's "The Import. anee , or Being Earnest" which will be presented April 3 and 4. .The production will be' under the direction and supervision or Professor Edward Fredrich and Miss Frances Krook. Miss Constance Oldfield is the student production manager.

The high school and college men's intramural basketball games are going on in full force. On Sunday a[ternoons it one wanders over to the gym he will see the games underway. The standings show that the Chuggers, a college team, and the Senior Spastics, a high school team, are leading at the present.

The east chosen tor this farcical comedy is as follows: Algernon Monerieff-Walter Zimmermann; John Worthing-Jeremy Scharlemann; Rev. Canon Chasuble -James Boehm; Miss Prism-~lores Maichle: Merriman-Tom Schulz; Lady Bracknell-Lois Sievert; Gwendolyn Fairfax-Marianne Deming: Cecily Cardew-Edith Draheim; and Lane-Alex Damrow. Wilde, himself, speaks or the comedy as an "exquisitely trivial, a del.. ieate bubble ot fancy, and it has as ita philosophy. . .treat .11 trlvi.1 things ot lite seriously, and all the serious thin"gs or me with sincere and studied triviality." Although Wilde mocks conventional society, he doesn't concede that an excess of fashionable behavior is deplorable. This he reveals to us through his Platonic ideals or characters.

The new Luther Literary League is stepping out in style, as was evi· denced by the presence of human "(eet" on Ad Building walls last week. A very large "Snoopy" fol· lowed the tracks day ~y day, while phrase by phrase a sentence was fonned that invited interest in the new LLL. Tracks led to room 204, meetjng~place of the League, where a rousing meeting was held Mond~y, March 22, to top off a week-long membership campaign. For the past several months the League'8 Advisory Board and facultyadvisor, Prof. M. Schroeder, have heen revising the club's con8titution to meet the growing needs and interests of a rapidly-changing student body. At the present, it is in the hands of a faculty committee, await~ ing approval. This revision is part df the move to give the club ils new look. The membership campaign has been directed to informing the col· lege of opportunities to be found in t~e "new" League. Everyone is aware of the success o( the Debate club: the League will eventually become an organization of many sim· ilar clubs of special interests. Anyone ('an join; anyone can start a

Today our circulation extends to the whole student body and approximately 500 others, alumni and friends. Of course, student subscription is automatic at registration, but why stress the fine points? In the years prior to the appearance of a yearbook, the Me .. enger printed a special commencement issue in spring which contained pictures and articles about each grade uate. In the March, 1949, issue (Arthur Schulz,editor), we read, "... the school's first yearbook is in the making. Its name-Excelsior. The staff was chosen by the entire student b?dy." Prof. Trapp is faculty advisor ..

Cleansing Blood Behold the stream of blood! 'Tis more than lite to me; It is the blood of Christ the Lamb, Who died on Calvary. Hark to the mournful cry! How passionate His pain! Great agony He suffers now, As heart.le!81yHe's slain. Alas, and all for me He bears the doom of sin! I'm totally unworthy, Lord, That Thou should'at make me clean. I fan before Thy feet, Now ertmeon, torn and raw. I drove the nails into Thy hende, When I forsook the Law. Though I could ne'er repay The kindness Thou hast shown, I dedicate my life to Thee; Accept it 8S Thine own. -Marietta Meyer

The magazine had a definite format that remained constant from issue to issue. Sections included the literary. editorial, alumni, exchange '(clippings from other school publications), colMiss Meyer is the fourth grade practice lege notes, co-ed notes, locals, athle- school supervisor at St. Paul's Lutheran tics, and a joke or humor column. School. Many familiar names were associated with these articles. For example, in .'88, when Arthur Glende was the editor, staff members included Raymond Duehlmeierand Wl'ldemar Nolte as Assistant Business Managers (both were to become editors) and Gertrude Vogel (the future Mrs. W. Nolte) as CollegeNotes writer.

Lit League To Present "Wilde" Comedy

Then, too, there was 1988, when George Heckmann was Assistant Business Manager (editor by '40) and Gilbert Fischer wrote Athletics. The college basketball team in this year was coached by Prof. Voecks, and team membersincluded future DMLC Professors Swantz, Fischer, Heckmann, Birkholz, and Hahnke. (Would anyone care to check the sports column for scores1) Humor abounded in the old magazines. Here's a sample from the 'ec., 1940 issue:

ProCessor: "But you don't expect me to hear it rattle way up here, do you1" Another favorite comes from the Sept., 1981, issue (Meilahn Zahn, editor): Little girl: "Auntie, what would you prefer in your future husband, wealth, ability, or appearance?" Spinster: "Appearance. But he will have to appear pretty soon." So much for the nostalgia. But one wonders-in twenty or thirty years, will some other staff be rereading old Messengers, recognizing names and pictures, smiling at our antiquated way•••• 1 1 -Delor.. Maichle

The perfonnance dates of "The Importance of Being Ernest," Oscar Wilde's farcical comedy, are rapidly approaching. On the nights of April 3 and 4 the Luther Literary League will stage one of the most unusual farces written in our time. This so-called "comedy of wit" airs the late Victorian period in England. The characters of the play belong: to the world of high fashion, but never seem to be bothered with the question of maintaining these fortunes. Instead they concentrate on style, wit and-court&hip. Conventional society 8E!eTDS to have taken a back seat, for the dominant motivation is the char~cters' pursuit of happiness. We must also remember that a farce isn't given to touch us or arouse our emotions. In fact, Shaw tells us-it must not touch us. Although the premises are trivial and absurd, they product'! circumstances which seem tragic to the characters. What seem,. at first, l.imple problems turn into com.plex dilemmas. Therefore, the farce is played seriously as if all the epigrams delivered were the established laws of society. Wilde's humor is in the word and is therefore more taxing to the intelligence of the audience than the conventional slap-stick humor.

To err is human, but it takes a better excuse the second 1ime.

On Request-s-

"What is a Iriend'l" I asked a man, A sage so old and wise, He looked at me and smiling said, A twinkle in his eyes, "A friend is one who reaches out to Help you on life's way, who listens To your cares and woes and brightens Up each day. But listen now and Mind me well if true friends you Would find, for friendship is a sacred Trust, a pledge that must be signed. It's signed with thoughtful deeds and words And caring for each other. It's sealed With understanding love and aid For every brother." I thought about what he had said And promised I would try to be A friend to all I met before They passed me by. For friendship is a special gift That each of us can give to aU Mankind throughout this land While here on earth we live. -Linda Rausch

Throughout the Lenten season our thoughts are turned to Getbsemane, Calvary, and the cross of our Savior. In our archives we find a poem written by Carol Kohl which gives expression to these thoughts, and which we would like to reprint at this time from the 1964 Lenten issue of the Mesaeneer. Carol, a 1964 graduate of DMLC, is now teaching grades 1-4 at Yakima, Washington.

1 Walked With Him I walked with Him that fateful night; I followed to Gethsemane. I watched as He knelt down and prayed, I saw Him as He was betrayed. I heard the people call Him names; t They shoved the thorns down on Hia llee.dI saw His face all streaked with red ... To Calvary I walked with Him• What pain I saw in that holy face AIl step by atep He ,lowly paced Until He came to Golgotha. The nails went in, His body hung. I felt the thirst .or His parched tongue; I heard His words, still full of love.

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.


I saw the agony and pain, The hands and feet with their reddened stain. I cried when I IBW Him suffering there, Hanging helpless upon that treeSo good', 80 pure, 80 fair was He. But still my Savior died for me.

One of the most fascinating words in the English language is the simple monosyllabic, five-letter symbol, linea. These thin fibres convey marious meanings to people of different walks of life. Linea. To the mathematician, lines are the things between two points. They are also a continuum of a point in motion, the bounds of any plane figure, and, if they are straight, the shortest distance between two points. Lines are fascinating, perpendicular, ' parallel, angular, and segmented.

And you ask me why I love Him? -Caru:1 Kohl

The playwright, actor, and director see lines as strings of words to be put together, memorized, and coupled in meaningful order to create a story.

College Basketball Team Completes Season Although we lost more games than we won, this year's basketball season was better than that of last year. Team performance, however, was handicapped by an unusual number cr injuries sustained by the various players. Although he did an exceptional job or leading the team on the floor and in scoring, team captain Dale Walz alone suffered more in,uries this season ,than the average player receives in four seasons. The bench did a fine job oC substituting. The perConnance oC the team was better in many instances than the scores would indicate. Bob Schroer, for instance, got 300 rebounds, an

excepdonel number considering the size oC the players in our conference. The conference itself is growing stronger every year, thus increasing the competition each season. This year we won five games (one of which was the alumni game), as contrasted to the one win or last year's season. The conference has passed a new rule which makes college seniors eligible for the team. This means that we will have many of the same men returning to the DMLC court next season. With this added experience, and hopetully [ewer injuries, next year's team will undoubtedly improve our record.

Their music can't be described as jazz or classical and they prefer to call it "listenable music." Their music -is ideally suited for concerts and is favorably rated by the p1'e88. One distinct feature of the Trio is its lack of a set program. They preler to play what they leel and improvise. Igor Stravinsky said. "They have a virtuosity worthy of the gods. They will appear on May 9 at the Northrup Auditorium with the Minneapolis Symphony. Don Shirley is quite an interesting and talented man. He is not only a great musician, but he has acquired a doctorate in psycholo~ and is known as an outstanding composer. This. appearance should be heralded and remembered by all for this exciting new approach to music. OJ

NWC Chorus Appears The "Churchyear in Song" was the theme of Northwestern College's Male Chorus, which during the past Easter recess toured the central United States in celebration of its school's one hundredth year in existence. Their concert, which was held here the 21st of April, was well attended and well received. The concert commenced with "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God." Following the initial choral, a section, the Churchyear in Hymns and Chorals, was presented. All of the selections in this grouping were arranged by the director, Prof. A. O. Lehmann. The middle section, the Churchyear In Anthems. featured numbers centered around Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection. This section was highlighted with the two-choir arrangement of "0 Savior Burst the Heavenly Bound" by J. Brahms. The concert was concluded with the Churchyear in Carols and Sptrttual Song which featured such selections as "The Little Drummer Boy," '~What Wondrous Love." and a Spanish carol, "In Joseph's Lovely Garden." The seventy-voice 'choir of our own Doctor Martin Luther College presented its homecoming concert on April 25th in the school auditorium. The choir had just returned from a twelve day, twenty-five hundred -mile tour of the central and western portion of the United Sta~s.

"Singing Praises to God" was the theme of the choir's concert. Once again the auditorium was filled to capacity as the choir, under the direction of Prof. M. Zahn, sang its praise to God. The program, which followed the churchyear, began with "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God." The first section, which included songs (rom Reformation and Christmas, was concluded with the selection, "The Presentation of Christ in the Temple." "Be Not Afraid," a motet arranged for two choirs by J. S. Bach, opened the second section. The chorals, "Upon the Cross Extended," and "0 Sacred Head Now Wounded," were included in this section. The number. HYe Sons and Daughters," by Leiaring, another twochoir arrangement, was then presented. "Christ is Arisen," followed by -"We Now Implore God the Holy Ghost," composed by Ludwig Lenel, were the highlights of this section; In the final section, "How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" by J. Brahms was rendered with a combined organ-piano accompaniment. "Muede bin ich," arranged by Markworth, and "Abide, 0 Dearest Jesus," setting by B. Backer. cast a more serene spirit over the audience. The concert ended with the late Emil D. Backer's stimulating arrangement of the "Apostolic Blessing."

Heigh-Ho; Come To The Fair On the afternoon of Sunday, May 2, a great many- people viewed the various displays and demonstrations gathered for the third annual Phlogiston Science Fair. In past years the Science Fair has been held in conjunction with the. Marlut-Aeoliand-Band Concert, but this year the Fair branched out on its own to allow more room for the growing number of exhibits and to provide convenient vieV¥;ingof the projects, The combined I'rade school, hirh uhool, and coller. entries neared the 200 mark. The projects were varied in nature, representing many fields of science. Some of the many interesting exhibits included entries on crystal formation, science kits, making paper, stain removal, testing blood types, mounting animals, and mice experiments. After all of the judging was done and the tabulation of scores was completed. the following were the grand prize winners: Grade School: Stephen Schuetze -Grade 8, New Ulm-"Thennos r": A Satellite Model High School: Jane Bode-Grade 10, DMLHS-CoUection of Wood Samples College: Karen and Loi.

Whose Victory?

Editorial Lost Words Appropriate title for an editorial, is it not? But fitting as it is, we have another suhject in mind. It's time to take stock. One more issue of the Meaaen'fer remains to be printed, and we'd like to review the year. Eight times thus far copy has gone to press, and eight times the student body has read and digested the material, and formed some opinion concerning it. But opinion. have been wasted/ We've never needed a "Letters. to the Editor" column simply because there never are any. Think about it. Your contributions in the way of constructive criticism could mean a great deal. With the increased enrollment next year we'll be playing to still a bigger house. As our scope expands, so also must our production. What is the Messenger? It is, at first glance, a four-page printed newssheet with columns, headlines, pictures. In this respect it appears to be quite normal. Now what is its object] It is the monthly production of a small staff of collegiates who try to please what often appears to be a disinterested public. There are always those who read only class news and picture captions. For them the material is too old by the time it goes to press. We agree with this complaint, but the fact remains that without assistance from interested corners the situation cannot and will not improve .. Improvement is an elusive thing without concern and aid

Even student publications not etand etill. If readers


want bigger and better things, they can present their case and efforts will be made toward improvement, even as they are made with each. and every issue. The Me.. enger could be a true nelllspaper for the students. After all, the paper belongs to its readers. Your newspaper presents your news on your behalf. Basically it comes down to this-a larger staff would report twice the news, when it still is news. One issue remains to be produced this year. Our goal is simple: a student newspaper called the DMLC Messenger.

On Apri1 21, the ladies auxiliary of .the St. Peter vicinity was hostess to the TABS who travelled there to provide entertainment for the group. This past week-end, May 1~2, the TABS sang some of the Choir's regular tour numbers for two. morning services at congregations in the Winona area. Prof. Zahn rushed back from a conference to "be able to direct the group in these appearances. Sunday evening, the TABS rendered a portion of their ever-increasing repertoire in an effort to interest more young people in at~ tending DMLC. Their efforts were well received and much appreciated by those in their audiences.

r Finally the sun has once again shown its face, and once again we have spring. For a long time, however, many were somewhat disturbed by the length of time spring was taking in coming. As one student put it:

When? How '}ongshall it be before we hear The voice of a bird singing with cheer, The babble of the brook, running through the park, The wind in the trees, a cricket in the dark? How long till we may lift our eyes To see feathered formations fiying by, High in the sky the sun shining bright, Buds on a tree-a sign of new life? How long must we walk over ice and snow Fearful of life wherever we go? How long till it melts and flows away? How eagerly all await that dayf The calendar says that spring is hereAt least it should be at this ti~e of year, But I've yet to see the first robin redbreast, Genera.lly considered the official test. When will we see wash out on the line. Grass on the ground, leaves on the vine? When will children go outside to play Instead of watching TV all day? When will spring be sprung? -pam

History students will testify that all through the ages some extremely talented men such as Plate, Aristotle, de Vinci, and Michaelangelo have made their mark on so-ciety. Even now, we feel their influence upon our lives.

The term homo univeraaUs was employed to describe a man of numerous talents, one who. did well in many areas. Perhaps the most outstanding, and yet most neglected, homo univeraaU. of all time is one called Anonymous. Though information on his life is non-existent, and we have no. portrait which we may, study, nevertheless, from his works we are able to learn a number of thin~ about him.

One might also deduce that -Anonymous experienced extreme variations in mood. Both his music and his writings at times are light and gay, and then again are dark and gloomy. His paintings utilize a wide variety of color combinations which indicate woe, nostalgia, glee, sobriety, and happiness. That he was able to work under the influence of all these moods is in itself remarkable and commendable.

It is easily determined that the opinions of this _.homo unlversalis on what constitutes a poem, essay, painting, or musical composition were not deeply rooted since the craze of each era affected him and changed his approach to his creations.

The very fact that he has not produced an autobiography shows us that he was extremely modest. A person with as many talents as he had surely would recognize his worth to the world: therefore, it Is impossible to think that he neglected providing an autobiography because of an unrecognized market for the material.

Are you in the "In" gro.p or the "Out" group? Stranre as it may BOund,this query is a common one among the college juniors these days. The stimulus, of course, arises from the recently'issued practice school Jiat for the clomlngyear, and the purpose; is to determine whether one's classmates will be teaching in Ne~ Ulni or at one of the cooPerating 'schools in wiSconsin. Between the alternating eager anticipation and nervous seizulea, cl888 members agree that they, are looking forward to their quarter of molding the minds of future citizens.

Digging back to the pre-Easter season, we find our ambitious class actively engaged in cutting classes. Besides bringing the entire class together lor one last "doing" before graduation, the class trip was a good training period for Choir I members who'd be spending their Easter vacation in buses. Luckily the Intervening activities of touring Ford Co. and Bell Telephone coupled with the generously-cushioned theater seats provided enough change of pace to see the saddle-sore through long. long day.

Everyone has noted the expansion in the size of our class since Easter vacation. Memories of ,choir tour have not ~nly settled in the deep crevices of the mind, but also have tn eome "weigh" made themselves more apparent in the very stature . and bearing of Some of our classmates.

If any of the Choir I members were asked to describe the twelve days they spent on tour in a few words, I'm sure moat of them would reply, "It was really a marvelous. memorable and fun-filled experience."

Talk about courage! While whitefaced classmates were shakily leaving needle-bearing nurses, Rhoda Engel retorted, "Hub, I've felt mosquitos who were more vicious." She's so tough she probably eats her marshmallows raw. Patsy Boehning's new hair-do hides a patch job. She was involved in an auto accident over vacation and received a gash in the head. Of course, that's nothing serious. Ouch! that ought to keep her in stitches a while. Investigating extended vacations, Gary Becker was flooded out at Fond du Lac. Maybe he should have invested in waterwlngs instead of a new Rambler. Then there's Karen Schwalbe who has every reason to believe in the good fairy. Instead of the customary money for a departed tooth, the good fairy presented Schwabs with a 4-day vacation.

Time Out


Spring Is Here!?! Spring is here!?! At least the calendar and sports schedule say so. Thoseout for the spring sports, however, may disagree with both. Since Easter recess ended, the verious coaches have been trying to shape up their tea~s. as quickly as possible, but because of the weather, practices have been difficult to schedule. Coach Dallmann even found it necessary to rig the gym with special equipment so the college baseball team could practice. A person doesn't realize how vital these practices are unless he has participated or does participate in a sport. To the individual, they are sheer drudgery (with maybe a little fun if the coach is in a good mood), but they are necessary to enable a team to do its best. Unless an athlete is in top physical condition"he can't be expected to do his best; and if he doesn't, both he and the team suO'er. These practice sessions demand much from an athlete. He must give up valuable time which he could spend working on tomorrow's assignments, earning some spending money, or just plain relaxing. Immediately after school he engages in a set of strenuous exercises and the tedious practicing of maneuvers his particular sport requires. In spite of all the work and sacrificesinvolved, any athlete will tell you that when his moment of glory comes, that time when he must exert all his training and skill, the long, hard hours of practice have been worth it. Now that the sports calendars have been set, One can reasonably expect others to support our teams by getting out and cheering. They've worked hard to give us a good sports reputation, and merit our appreciation.

Still At Top Winning team members are Pelzl, Bleick, HHl, Schultz. Lunzman, and Bec;:ker. Champion bowler was Chuck Swartz with Bob Schroer in second place.

Track Team Shapes Up Because of inclement weather this year, track, as well as the other spring sports, has been hampered by laek of practices. Coach Heiderich, however, designed a set o{ exercises to get his track teams, college and high school, in shape over Easter recess. These exercises, plus workouts out of doors when the weather permitted, helped to shape up the teams in the little time allowed.

Golf To The Fore

This year the high school golf team numbers five in all. Prof. ·C. Trapp is the coach of the. group who will drive and replace divots throughout the golf season this spring. As of yet, no matches have been set up with other schools, al.. though contacts with echools have been made through Coach Kaiser.

June 8th at 8:15 marks the date and the time of the annual June Night Concert. This year, as in the past, the music of the band and the various choirs will be featured. The selections which the band will render 88 preconcert music include:

The Tour Choir of 1964-1965 has a ton of wonderful memories of good times to keep for years to come and Wednesday, May 26, they had the final touch added to their memory list with a beautiful banquet.

The tables in the dining hall were transformed, between supper time and 7:30 P.M., into colorful road maps or the tour just passed, but nothing topped the food. After the "consummation" of I appetizers, the choir members set to work on the delicious T-bone steaks. As Professor Zahn said, "You really have to enjoy eating to belong to this choir." With the choir president, Herb Wolff, guiding the course of the evening, the choir thoroughly enjoyed such things as Prcfeasor Brick's trip down the memory lane of tour; sinJring by the Three Tabs, Phyllis Schwantes, and Sharon Reils; a duet by the singing cowboys picked up on the trip in the persons of Professors Zahn and Brick; and the remarks of Professor Zahn, After presenting the director, Professor Zahn, and the business manager, Professor Brick, with gifts of

Reflections on a Summer Day

People I Meet


I saw a man today As he passed along his way. I know him by his reputation; His deeds show dedicationBut he passed along his way.

Finale End, last, and final are frequentlyheard words in' the halls and dorms these days; "It's the end of the ye~r" -"I can't wait for the last class "It's time to cram for finals!" But there's another word for some among us these days. Armed with our trusty Webster, we have found a few thoughts about "finale," For malcontent musicians a finale is "the concludingmovement or passage of a musical composition."That must refer to the last dissonant chord in an audition. Or perhaps it's the last note sung on June night. Still, could it be the closing strains of the recessional, come graduation morning? For the happy-timers, a finale is "the last sceneor feature of an entertainment." Of course-this stands for all those science fiction thrillers at the show downtown, Maybe . . . maybe it's the word fort the pi~l!ics which close off the year s activities. And yet, to graduates, this finale is the end of happy student days here, as good times turn to memories. For those of you who are leaving us a finale is "the conclusionor last pa'rt; end." It is a diploma in your hands: it is a call to you to do the Lord's work elsewhere. It is at once' the finale and the beginning. So those you leave behind wish for you good days now, at the end, and g.ood days tomorrow. when your new hves begin. -Delore. Maichle

Remember! If half the lun and all the "yuka" Were piled up, I bet You'd find them towering high above The troubles that we've met. In other words, this year has been A great one to remember. And if you find your memory dims, We'll take it from September. First days, new rooms, the forms to fill, The lines at registration, Were all a part of fitting inAlthing called orientation. To kids who've studied here before: A time to greet old faces, A chance to sit around and talk Of summer's sights and places. Soon studies filledeach person's thoughts With readings, essays, due dates. But next to these the winter days Brought Christmas, snow, and new skates. Remember all the hours we spent On yuletide decorations? Remember concerts, parties, too, And leisurely vacation? Who could forget semester tests With students' dismal moansl Rememoer pleasure...aeekingthrills, And two with broken bones? With stories and with pictures, too, First Choir recalls the days When Easter's tour brought them the chance To sing the Almighty's praise. And now the banquets, picnics, too, Close off another year. Soon books will shut and packing start; Vacation days draw near. And now at last a fond farewell Is wished by one and all To those who'll graduate, a8 they Accept a higher call. -O.M.

Spring Is For ••• The most popular question for opinion polls at this time of year is perhaps that old favorite which never wears out, "What do you think spring is for?" The DMLC student body has some very definite, views on this subject. Let's take a look at them. What Tennyson said about spring and. a young man's fancy seems also to be true in general among young women. Yes, threefourths of the interviewees answered the obvious, "LOVE'" One realist classified her statement with, "except at DMLC, where it's for going for walks with the girls." The second most popular attitude toward spring was in the general area of happiness, gaiety, and fun of every kind. Close to this came the nature lovers who thought about melting snow, green grass, birds, and all sorts of outdoor things. One smart cookie remarked, "Flowers-+Ha'Ha, I'll bet you thought I was going to say it was for lovers!" Remarkable perception there! Opinion pollers always find several Interesting minority opinions expressed. Listen in, as these people tell what they think spring is for: One-Track-Mind: "Baseball and flowers and baseball and walks and baseball and love and baseball ..... etc. ad infinitum. Philosopher: "Learning how to live again." Skeptic: "Did we have one this year?" Obviously: "To be sprung." Pessimist: "Schoolwork."

Shakespeare on Exams 8, 19&5

Spielvontish The Educationarlap How often hasn't it been said that there is nothing new under. the lun? Today mankind is dedicated to the frantie but fruitless search ' for the undiscovered. For years, science and pedagogy have been attempting to fuse their energies and goals in the development of a process to be known as learnlnc whUeyou sleep. It is felt that by employing this means, the college students of today could make more efficient use of their time, and perhaps be able to rescue a bit 'of former study-time from the normal working hoursto devote to the sadly neglected. extra-curricuIar aspect of college life! The study-while-you-sleep mechanism eon-.' sists of no more than a tape which plays continuously through the entire, or ... set portion of, the night, thus providing the drill needed to memorize lists, rules, or passages as the case may be. A:ny student can well appreoelate both the need for and advantages of such a device. But what modem science and education doesn't seem to realize is that the basic concept of learning in one's sleep is nothing new or different. Students the world over have been doing it for years! The somnolent beings which drift through the halla of any college or university are visible, living and breathing proof that students are generally in a state of suspended animation, commonly referred to as sleep. Since this state is main. tained nearly without interruption, one might safely draw the conclusion that. students learn in their sleep. Though not actually a scientific development, this process .does require a certain specialized technique. Throughout the years of his formal schooling, each student diligently (though not necessarily willingly) practices the knack of appearing wide awake and listening to the day'a leeeon with rapt attention, while in actuality, the :mind behind those wide-open eyes is sound asleep. The art' of copying key' phrases into a notebook becomes as natural as fluffing a pillow or readJusting the blankets. At the end of an hour, a bell rudely jars the mind out 01 the land 01 Nod and back to the: present. As he sets hIs books together ~·an6'-prepares to meander' to the next' classroom where he win settle down for another educational nap, the student marvels' at· the number of concepts actually gained during the past hour. He has learned, yes, learned in his sleep!

College IV Now that the flurry of call night is over, we find ourselves trying to finish the last school work of our college career. Besides homework, there's a long list or activities for which we also must find time: auditions, Senior-Faculty Banquet, open house at Professor Hartwig's, Fallen Trees' Luau, Pelzls' Party, Alumni Banquet, June Night, and graduation. We also hope Charlotte found time to finish her conducting. Now as our stay at DMLC, our second home, draws to a close, we feel the words of our class motto are good words for the faculty, underclaasmates, and many other friends, as well as our class to carry along. "Be strong and of a .aood courage; ... for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9a,c.

Alter feasting so elaborately. the entertainment, under the direction of Tish Murray, followed. First on the agenda was the presentation of a gift of appreciation to our advisor, Professor Trapp, for the many hours of service he has rendered both publications. After his acceptance, the program turned to a more humorous vein with a dialogue between Delores Maichle and Carol Unke which left quite a few "suckers" on the line.

College III At this writing, College III is preparing to put the finishing touches on the third chapter in its history as a class at DMLC. The next Call Night is oura+only 351 days, or 8,424 hours, or 505,440 minutes, or 30,328,400 seconds away!

Graduatea' ten, ion tUrna to excited diacu.,ion after the can. are read. As time passes and graduation creeps ever closer, classmates are becoming very adept at gathering materials for personal professional libraries. The faculty has manifested its concern in doling out 26 pamphlets in a class period-aU free for the taking. Bookshelves and files are bulging! In addition to the normal College III work-overload, many clasematea have volunteered to help organize a series of 30 Sunday School lessonguides for teachers of pre-school classes. This project should prove to be stimulating, interesting, and no doubt will tap the abundant creative and imaginative abilities of those participating. Finally we would bid. "So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu," to those members of our class who received their calls' May 21st and will be teaching next fall.

Calls Received By 1965 Graduates

Marriall'e. Carole Luedtke ('!I '63) became the bride 01 Edgar Sorgatz (HS '62) in Fairfax, April 24. The Sorgatzs have made their home in St. Paul.

Terry Jo entered the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Zimmerman of New Ulm, on the twenty-fifth of April. Mr. Zimmerman is a member of the DMLC music faculty.

Everybody Loves A Picnic

The Lenius Philosophy

"Never tell your true feelings to a reporter!"

The world of today is full of tension for many people and for many different reaso;s. But when tension is evident on the DMLC campus around May 21, usually the people involved are graduates and the reason is Call Night. On this evening of the year the college students assembled in the chapel to wait and discuss, wait and talk, and wait some more for the list of calls to be phoned in from the Seminary at Mequon where the call committee met. The<l. as_j.~egradua~ waited to hear what their futures: would be. _. _ _. After a chapel service at which Professor Hartwig addressed the group, Dean Hahnke read' the long-awaitedlist. Now excitement replaced tension as details concerning the town, church, school, and pastor and other teachers flew around thick and fast. Now that everyone knew where they were going to be teaching this fall, excitement was high and often the remark was made, "Oh, I wish I could start teaching right now!"

Luther at the Bat

Time Out As the athletic season at DMLC again came to a close.with the annual Activities Banquets, our athletes received their fonnal recognition and thanks for participation in sports. For the true athlete, it is' only a formal acknowledgement, be~ause his real rerognition and thanks comes from the student body. It's nice to receive a letter for your room or jacket and it's nice to be awarded.a plaque or citation for an outstanding season, but a much greater reward is the eoand of a crowd, of a student body, cheering and rooting its team to victory, or cheering with pride, in spite of defeat. With sincere support it's only natural for a team and its players to do their best. The student body at Luther deserves a little extra recognition for their part in team support. Although many events such as football, track, and some baseball are played downtown at Johnson Field, Luther students come to support their teams. . . This inconvenienceseems not to bother the avid supporters, but IS often a damper to those who would like to come but .. , For those in the latter group the reward would be worth the effort. They will not only be helping their team, but also themselves and their echccl by going to cheer. Although football is one of the largest crowd gatherers, next year the resolutionought to be to support all the teams. Track and baseball men work just as hard and deserve equal support. . . Walking a few extra blocks will give our athletes this support, recognition, and thanks they deserve. -John SeUert

. Collece Lancer. The Lancer baseball team has had great success this year so far, with a eeeeon record of 9~3 and only four games left to play. Three double headers have been postponed this year because of weather conditions. The Lancers started off the season by dropping a pair of games to a strong Willmar team, 10-5 and 7-6. They went on to win six straight games before losing to Austin 13~7in the first game of a double header.
