Our Sign Of Welcome Dr. Martin Luther College-the marker at the entrance to the college is more than just a stone edifice; it is a milestone for you, whether you are beginning your college career or returning for another year. The name at the entrance proclaims to all who pass, and more important, to all who enter, that within the 'waIls 'of "Ul" college 15'''taught the Word of God. The 'following' is taken from the '64-'6;; school eata101(. These words bear repeating:

The Marker

"Dr. Martin Luther College uncompromisingly clings to the divine inspiration of the Bible. It be~ieves, therefore, that ali education, if it is to be really beneficial to the individual and to the, community, must make the human soul conscious of its sinful tendencies and inspire it with a living faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior. This alone

Monday,

Very cordially yours, Carl L. Schweppe, College President

enables man to face life's problems wisely and to appear before his God cenfidently and eagerly. Only the Holy Spirit can so educate, and He works only through the Scriptures. Dr. Martin Luther College stands up for this Truth, preaches this Word, and builds all of its education en this Basis." The purpose of the college is to serve the Church by educating future teachers, and through .:them, to spread the Word' of God. Helice life at DMLC, both in work and relaxation, is directed to' the training of young Christians, training those here, and indirectly trainiag those in the schools of our Synod. A great task lies before you who enter at the marker; but the task is not an insurmountable one. With the help of God and the love of your neighbors here, you can realize your calling+-to be a true servant of the Lord. Therefore, welcome to New Ulm, which our School for over 80 years has called its town, a prosperous

and growing city of 13,000. In recent years maay large well known industries have located here.

ORIENTATION

GREETINGS I hope that you are looking forward to the new school year with the same interest and enthusiasm that we have experienced here for so many years, among both the faculty and the new enrollees It is always a pleasure and a privilege to meet all such and again to see those who have been with us before. No doubt you will find yourself among a large group of people whose names you don't know, but it will not take you long to become acquainted. These so-called strangers will certainly be friendly and L. Schweppe co-operative. Besides, you will not really be among strangers at all. 'Ve all worship the same God and Savior are of one and the same faith and thus form one Christian family intent on glorif;ing the Lord by word and deed for all of the great things which in His boundless mercy He has done for us. May He preserve in you the strength and zeal to become His faithful servants This is our prayer and expresses the type of sentiment with whieh we welcome you thaaking God for having persuaded you to prepare yourselves for the undeserved honor of full-time service in His Kingdom.

This year, as in the past, the Phlogiston Science Club is out to prove that science can be fun and educational at the same time. Some of the projects which are under consideration are several field trips and a number of guest speakers in addition to the regular plan of activities and experiments which will be given by the students themselves. Preliminary plans for the annual spring Science Fair will be another of the projects soon under consideration. Because life is serious and science is an important part of our lives, it must be taken seriously, yet "science can be fun." The club does not aim to make professional scientists out of the members, but only to aid them in achieving for themselves a workable knowledge in the fundamentals necessary for teaching or

Editorial The Campaigners: A Chance To Choose The state of the Student Council campaigninglast Wednesday nearly prompted an opinion on the deplorable lack of candidates. At the beginning of the evening only one or two people had as yet declared their intentionof runningfor a certain office. Werethe students tohave no choice of candidates for this position? That wouldhave been unchallenging as well as undemocratic. Fortunately, this state ofaffairs did not remain - in a matter of hours enoughpeoplewere stricken with campaignfever to make the coming week a real contest. We were certainly relieved to see the transformation, for it spoke wellofstudent spirit and interest. Whether . these people were persuaded to run by a personal feeling of loyalty to the school, by theunhappy thoughtof so very few in the running, or both, we must credit them with a great deal of courage. Others had thought about this election for many a day' and were essentially prepared to meet it head-on. But the "last'-minutecampaigners" were forced to organized fullscale campaigns in a matter of hours. Actually, whether a person decided to run for office one month ago or one week .ago makes no difference: the major consideration is capability. All those who campaigneddid their part to offer to the students a wonderful opportunity: the chance to choose the officers they consider capable ofrepresenting them in StudentCouncil.

College III Resolution Last week College III publicly declared its' decision to discontinue the annual Get-AcquaintedPicnic. Theexplanation offered for this unexpectedannouncementwas the increased enrollment makes it virtually impossible for students to mix and meet new faces. The juniors reasoned that those whoattended the picnic in previous years tended to gather within the circles of their own acquaintances, making no conscious effort to meet or greet new students. If we aSSUDle that DMLCis "too large" for a picnic of this kind, then College III certainly has a case. But let us also note that the cliques wouldprobably remain, no matter how many students there are. People rarely change their response to others just because the crowd grows larger. The juniors recognized the fact that the Get-Acquainted plcntc was not fulfilling its name or purpose. Their response to the problem, however, seems a bit drastic. We maintain that there are "ways and ways" ofgettingacquaintedwith

Fellow students: I, -Nixie Meyer, am a candidatefor the office of StudentCouncilPresident. _ I feel that if elected president oftheStudentCouncil,I will be capable of doingthe job and doing it well. I have served as class president four times, class vice-president twotimes, and also president or counselor of two dormitories. I feel that I am not lackingin experience for I have workedwithgroups, committees, and also individuals in the three highschooland five college offices that I have held.

Roger Klockziem say only those whoparticipate will benefit in this manner. I do believe election time should be evaluation time. We are unique in this factor also because the judgmentofthepeoples of D.M.L.C.is on a higher scale due to higher education which we do possess. Because of that factor, we will not fall into the folly of the American people. That is, let our judgment be movedby louddemonstrations, jokes, false slogans, and the like. I am sure that the evaluationwill be based on the candidates and their ideas of studentgovernement.Asa basis for your evaluation, I have one thoughtas yet. Why do I want to be president? I wantto partlcipate for the benefits that I mentioned above. I mentioned that such benefits would be manifested in my future classroom. Let me make clear my underlyingthought.

St. Paul' s Co~;;g~t'i~::;;:·:'~ Celebrates Centennial "Now also when I am old and grayheaded,

0 God, forsake me

not; until 1have shewed thy strength untothis generation, and they power unto every one that 1s to come." With these words ot Psalm 71, st. PaUl's congregationbegan Its celebration of "a century at grace". Last Sunday,the tlrst ot five Sundays set aside by the congregation tor Its centennial observation, was "Centennial Sunday". The sermon, delivered by President Carl Schweppe )the text tor which Is partially quoted above), reviewed the abundantblessings ot God through the years and reminded the cqngregatlon ot the great task that lies ahead as It enters Its second century ot grace: the lask of showing God's "power to every one that 1s to come." The sermon em_ phasized that this task can be accomplished only by the strength which God provides, for without that strength all that man accomplishes must certalnly come to naught. At the 8:00 a.m. service, the DMLC concert choir, under the direction at Protessor Zahn, sang "NowThankWeAllOur God." Tbls service was broadcasted over KNUJradio. The calendar for the four remalnlng centennial observation SundaysIs as follows: Mission Sunday, October 10. An Illustrated mission lecture by Rev. E. Hoeneeke, an official of the SynodWorld Mission Board will be presented at 8:00 p.rn. The Mission Falr Exblblt by the children of st. Paul's Schoolwill also be displayed. Confirmation Sunday, October 17. Rev. John Raabe will speak at the services, and confirmation class reunions will be held In the afternoon. Church Organization Sunday, October 24. Rev. M. Lenz, president of the Minnesota DIstrict, will speak at the services, and a special song service will be held at 8:00 p.m. Education Sunday, October 31. Rev. Karl Gurgel will speak at the services, and a Reformation service will be held at DMLCat 8:00 p.m. S!. Paui's congregation, especially through the efforts of Its pastor, C.J. Albrecht, was Instrumental In the foundingof Dr. Martin Luther College In 1884. The history at St. Paul's, which will receive much attention In the weeks to tallow, Is outlined In the booklet, "A Century at Grace", publishedbythe congregation.

Editorial It's that time of year again - the leaves are turning, sports are In full swing, and Homecoming 1s just around the comer. There's a great deal of talk about it these days, especlally regarding the _alumni for whom the celebr ations are annually staged. A dinner table conversation

was overheard

recently

•.•

"Did you sign up for the Homecoming Banquet?"

"Sure did - you didn't think I'd miss It, did you?"

"Well, no, but a lot of people w!1l." "Everyone I know Is going - who won't be there?" "Why, the guests of honor, that's whol The alumnll I 'heard only a few were Invited, and that's not fair. I wonder what person took It upon himself to decide who would be Invited." "Walt a minute: two hundred Invitations were sent to alumni by the "L" Club and Pep Club. Names were chosen from among those who have kept In close touch with DMLC through Messenger subscriptions, from old "L" Club members, and from graduates of the last two years. It would have been Impossible to Invite everyone, mostly because of limited space."

'Those invitations are pretty special, then, aren't theyl" "We'd like to think so. At any rate, here's hoping two hundred people can come. Many students are working hard to make this Homecommga real success." "Hope they all can come." "Hope they come." Yes, the Lancers, the Pep Club, "L" Club, the student body - everyone hopes to see the alumni on Saturday. It's not our day: It's theirs. This year's Homecoming should be an especially Jubilant one: we have an excellent soccer team of Which we can be proud, the efforts of the athletic clubs promise an enjoyable week end for all, and everybody loves a party. All that could be wished for would be to see many familiar faces of DMLC graduates.

Letter From The Field several weeks ago members of the college junior class accepted emergency leaching assignments. Two of these volunteers were Clara SChuette and Jan SChiomer, who were sent to Gethsemane Lutheran congregation In Los Angeles, Callfornla. They drove to the west coast together, and In a letter to friends here on earnpus the girls relate their manyexperiences since leaving Minnesota. The following Is composed of excerpts from one_of tllese interesting letters. cood morning, classmates! It's almost noon and Clara and I are over at the school. This morning and tomorrow morn-

Ing the children are to register. Honestly, I have so much to tell all of you that I don't know where to begin. I suppose a good start would be Tuesday (Sept. 14) since that's the day my life changed. The trip was fabulous _for the most part as we never would have seen such scenery going by train. Sterling, Colorado, was our destination Wednesday evening. A station attendant warned us about the snow storms predicted for the Rockies and gave advice On crossing the passes - just In case. He scared us pretty good! I think Clara had a worse time than I as she was on the edge and could look right over the cliff as we climbed. On to Utah - a beautiful nothing state. The only signs of fauna In this desolate place were a dead animal In the middle of the road, three buzzards sitting on It, and Clara and L Yet, this desolateness had a beauty of Its own. We couldn't have come out here at a better time.

U earlier we'd have missed the brilliant tall colors: If later, we'd probably still be Sitting In a snowbank. On to Callfornial By the way, we did make it without busting, money - or car-wise. By 8:30 p.m. we were well In the land of wheels and swimming pools. We spent this night In san Bernadino. We had no trouble whatsoever finding our way from one freeway to another and to the church and parsonage. A big moment - meeting our pastor and his famlly. Pastor and Mrs. Kelbel made us feel very welcome. Dinner wtth them was followed by a trip over to the cburch and school. Then we went right at the -.' boob, putting them In order and cleaning desks and drawers.

The curtain Is up! What's "In" Is out! The mystery surrounding the 1966 styles has been removed and the public Is now fully aware of the awe-full truths. No matter howtransient styles may be In such things as automobiles, dresses, colors, and hairstyles, one Item always remains In style: the American dieter. Dieting Isn't confined to anyone clique: qulte to the contrary,-1t 15enjoyed almost universally, though often modified to suit individual differences. Basically tliere are two classifications of dieters: those that diet to shed excess weight, and those that desire to adda fewpounds(these seem to be decreasing In numbers). The second catagory provides little entertainment for the observer, but the first Is chock full ofgoodies. Losing weight Isn't mucb of a problem, the problem Is In coping wltb all the uncontrollable variables which arise during the course of the ordeal. Living away from home presents onebig problem to the dieter: he has to l1ve with many well-meaning friends. How does one turn down the invitation of a generous dorm neighbor who has been popping corn aU during study hall, teasing you with the tantlllzlng aroma? What does one say to the dieter across the table who places his brownie on your tray? A friend In need ... Mothers are also a bit of a problem. You may starve for weeks, but decide to goOna diet and a CARE package will arrive In the mall the very next day. To dispose of the contents in some way other than consumption would break any mother's heart, so pushing all solemn resolutions aside, you simply must delight your tastebuds and hope to eat enough to bury the guilty tug of conscience.

Some determined souls manage to overcome even these formidable obstacles, only to be stumped by stlll others. -- The choice of foods In any diet is of the utmost Importance. Calories may not count, but many a mathematician has become proficient through dieting and counting his calories. Calories, calories everywhere, Ineverything we eat. Calories come In big quantltles.l1ttle quantities, plus quantities, and minus quantities. Dieters are likely to be able to remember the exact number of calories In any given serving of food (tbough they may otherwise insist that

sunday - yesterday - was a very Important day for us. It was the day to be Inducted In the service as teachers, meeting the members of the congregation, and wondering what they would think ot us. Almost got all chokedup when we were Inducted - hearing the responslbUitywe were laking upon ourselves, the coofldence of the congregation In us, and praying that we will be able to live and work up to their confidence. Oh, the people! They all seemed so wonderfU1 as they shook our hands after the service saying such things as "You're

an answer

to Our

prayers," ."God bless you," ''Welcome,'' and ''Thank you for coming." So much for now. Thank you so much for the nice send-ot! from school. Be SUre to write and let us know all the goings-on at DMLC. Thlmk you for your prayers. Godbless you all. Love, Jan they just cannot remember the dates for such Important historical events as the Thirty Years War, Gadsden Purchase, or when the Twlnswon the pennant). These same people are likely to tell you that there are more calories Inone piece of cake than In twenty pounds of potatoes, or that celery takes more calories to chewthan are In the vegetable Itself. Conversations centering around diets and dieting often prove to be Inter. estlng and entertaining experiences. Dieters may also be classlfled In another manner: those who admit It and tbose whodon't. Those who openly admit they are dieting are not simply facing real1ty, but increasing thetr social standing as well. Dieters are In; non-dleters are out. Some people simply do not wish to be known as social climbers and thus refuse to make their eating habits a well-publicized fact. Success by the latter

method comes much easier,

tor people

are more apt to think you a light eater than a dieter and thus are less tempted to Indulge In the popular sport of sabotaging the dieter. It Is the non-dleter's delight to see the dieter fall In his course. Open-admission of dieting brings an auto_ matic lifetime membershiP ,of Dieters, Inc., Dlnc, as It Is often referred to, provides no benefits other than the moral support of other members, but by Its very nickname suggests that you will be successful In your pursuit. After carefully examining the situation In the world of diets, we see that but one consideration remains: to diet or not to diet, that Is the question., .

Lancers Win First Two

From the Coach

Beat Pillsbury, 2·0

Here Is a summation of some of the commentsby Coach Dallmann made during an Interview conductedby thts editor. His commentson the soccer team: The offense was stronger than It was against Pillsbury. We controlled the ball for all but a few minutes of the game, about seventy.five per cent of the time. For outstanding Individualperformances Dallmannsingled out halfbackDaveEbelingfor his defensivework; KenRahn, sub. stltute front linesman, for his offensive work; and all four full. backs for their defense. Accordingto Dallmann,one of the team's stronger points Is the large numberof quality reserves. Their play against Bethany caused the coach to make this comment, "After the Bethany game the starttng lineupIs not very certaln". Shots: Kruse - 14; Hill - 8; Collyard and Walz- 5; Vetter, Tjernagel and Hahn - 4; Duehlmeler _ 3; senroer - 2; Ebeling, Cole, Jeffers and Boehm - 1. Shots made: Kruse - 3, Hill - 1, Rahn- 1.

On September 25 at Owatonna, the DMLC Lancers success-

fully started their drive toward the championshipwith a 2-0 victory over Pillsbury. As was expected, It was a tight match. Near the end of the first hal! a Pillsbury fullbackwas tryingto clear the balloutofboundswhen he accidentally kicked a goal for the DMLCteam. This was the second time 1n two years that this player made that mistake In the openinggame for Pillsbury. The score remained 1.0 for the !lrst half. In the secondhal!theLancers' depth began to payoff as cocaptain Merle Kruse scored the second goal. From then on It was

completely

the Lancers.

This was a giant step toward the championship: one down and five to go.

Merle Kruse scored the first goal with an assist from Gordy Vetter. In _the second half, Bob Schroer punched one through for the final 2-0 score. Coach Dallman received the trophy for the first Southern Minnesota Soccer Conference championship. ThIs game also ran the Luther winning streak to 13 games. All the games this year were very close. The Homecoming game agalnst Pillsbury was won by the score of 3-0. Once agaln Pillsbury did the Lancers a fa_ vor by scoring a goal for DMLC's team. Merle Kruse put In the clinchers In the second halt. A few days before, the Lancers proved they could hold their own and more agalnst st. Olaf. Once agaln the score read 2_0 for Luther. Bob Hill scored the first goal on a penalty kick, and Kruse added one In the second'llalf. Although this was a non-eonterence game, it was a great morale-building victory

After the Homecoming game, the Lancers tangled with the vastly-improved Vikings of Bethany. Lancers seemed to have no trouble adjusting to the poor playing conditions created by rain. It was a helter-skelter battle with Luther coming out on top, 5-1. Center Merle Kruse scored two goals, and the three wings. Vetter, Duehlmeier, and watz, each contributed one. The championship was ac; tually won before the final game with Concordia. Pillsbury tied Concordia I-I and eliminated them from the race. However, the Lancers had no Intention of letting up for this last game. They wanted the undefeated season that theyhadworked tor, As Coach Dallman remarked at the pep fest, nobody can say that a team backed Into a championship when It won all its

Organization

This Way Out The StudentCouncilregulations concerning hall traffic have been in effect for some time now, at least long enough for one to evaluate their worth. We wonder just how effective this year's directives are. A case in point: the scene upstairs in the Administration Buildingat 11:05 a.m, The east end of the hall is clear, save for the delinquentsignoringthe "Up Only" sign at the top of the stairs. The west end of the hall, however, is mass confusion. Students are going to their classrooms across the hall as through traffic to the stairs reaches the intersection. We agree that there must be traffic regulations in the

building. However, is the present system adequate? Does it work efficiently? Even if all the students complied with the rules" which the,ydo not, and even id the traffiC rules were strictly enforced, there would still remain problem areas. Perfection is impossible, but improvements could be made if exceptionswere applied to stair traffic, especially. The general directives given cannot cope with enough of the different situations throughout the day. We feel that the best system can be arrived at only through trial and error, evaluation, and careful revision of problem areas. Delores Maichle

Letter From The Field This time the Messenger wouldlike to take Its readers to Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, for another glimpse at the world of teaching. Linda Rausch, a third year graduate of '65, Is presenUy teaching the fourth grade at St. Paul's School.Arecent letter from Linda, mimeographedandsent to several students on campus, Is a fair example of the busy life an elementary school teacher leads. Parts of It are given below. October·19 Dear Things are going quite well here at St. Paul's. My 36 (added one more) indians are more interesting and lovable every day. We have done a mural and bulletin board on the desert, andareplannlng a farm for SocialStudies. OUrroom Is full of pumpkins, gourds and corn. stalks for our Harvest Party on October 29. Our weather chart showsonly 2 days of rain so far this month,and the turtles are thriving. I'm alwayssurprised bytheenthusiasm that (the chlldren) show for anything we do. They especially like our once-a-week German class, and have brought me all kinds of old German readers and song books. I'm amazed by how much "Deutsch" they are able to remember. I have also survived my first ParentTeachers' meeting, and the school vtst,tor. I found both bappenfngs very encouraging.All the parents were very nice and extremely cooperative. The school visitor was also very helpful. He gave me some suggestionsabout varying Word 01 God and, 01 course, said I talked too last. As you can probably tell, I'm just as happy as can be about teaching,

I SPIELVONUS=l English Is truly an expressive language, a "Queen" as Professor 'Enry 'Igglns of "My Fatr Lady" fame ca1ls It. Besides being expressive, English contains a number of cl1ches which, thoughoften condemnedby authorities on English, have Imbedded themselves In common speech so that to remov.. them would be to Impoverish the language, Cliches express In a few words what might otherwise take sentences to say. Cliches are interesting. While expressing a truth of life, they are catchy and easy to remember because each conjures a picture. Yet, cliches present a problem. What Is one to think when told that absence makes the heart grow fonder and then Is' countered with out of sight out of mind? When In doubt don't Is an Ingenlus combination of words to state a good .rule of thumbto rottow,ApplyIt toasslgn-· ments made by the teacher, and that's a horse of a different color. Animals seem to be a favorite subject of the cliche; Sln.Ue-cJlchesemploying animals always call atteniion to one of said animal's basic characterIstics. Leading a dog's life Is said to be rough, though many a student would gladly trade places.

If so, Qleen English will describe you as havingyou shoulder te the wheel and your nose to the grindstone.

The primary purpose of the program, nowIn Its 3rd year, Is to Interest young men and womenIn the teaching ministry In our Lutheran elementary schools, and to encourage them to prepare for the Lord's work at Dr. Martin Luther College.

Ghamplonshave been described manytimes andInmany ways. To be a championtakes practice anddetermination. It means that a goal must be set and all Involvedmust doggedlyrefuse to settle for anything less than the ultimate. To attain this, a champion must be able to rise to meet anysituation, even the most adverse. In the case of a team, it means that all of these things must become a part of each of Ibe individuals so that a cohesive unit Is formed. A championshipteam must have a championshipcoach to lead them. It must also have capable leaders and willing followers amongIts members. Discipline Is always Importantto any team, but If that team Is to be a championshipteam, self-dlsclpllne Is the only reasonable type. We, the members of the student body, can, and do, feel extremely proud of our soccer team. They are truly champions. This team portrayed all the qualities of a champion.They could have backed Into the championship.Even a loss In the last game with Concordia wouldn't have cost them this position. In fact, there were moments early In that game whenour boys were not playing like the champions they are. But Ibey got themselves "tlxed up," during that first half, and went on to dominate play In whichto makesuch a comeback.The championshipwas ours. We had already defeated Concordia once before this season. Here, then, was where our Lancers showed that championship spirit which has served them so well for two years, and whichwill continue to serve them In the years to come. Hats off to Coach Dallman for Instilling this spirit, and to the Lancers for a great sea-

District teachers conferences, PTa groups, college and high school student groups, and area high schools are often visited and informed about the work of the teaching mln1stry, and DMLC. Professor Brick emphasized Ibe Importance ofthe Corps' appearances before district teachers conferences. Largely by their own example, teachers and pastors can wield great InfluenceIn encouraging young people to prepare themselves for work In the Lutheran schools. Appearances have been made before district conferences In Nebraska, Mlrmesota and Northern Wisconsin. On November 5th, a visit to the Southeastern Wisconsin District Is planned, and a display on DMLCwill be exhibited at Garden HomescongregationIn Milwaukee. The speakers, In visiting PTa groups as well as college and high school student groups, usually present a program of slides. A talk by one of the students (from the prep or college department, depending upon the Interest of the group) explains whyhe Is preparing for the Lutheran teaching ministry, and the advantages of preparing for this work at DMLC. Visits to as manyofthe area highschools of the Synodas possible are also plannedfor this year. Professor Brick stated that the presentation wouldbe revised so that students wouldspeak on several aspects of the teaching ministry and their work at DMLC. Althoughplans for this tour are not yetfinal, Professor Brick feels that this aspect of the recruitment program shouldbe carried out In the early part of the year In order to reach the high school seniors who usually feel pressure from colleges for early apphcation.

Debaters At TCDLMeet November 9th marked the first tournament debating by the DMLC debate team. On this date, our coach, Professor Schroeder, and Mrs. Schroeder, who served as our timekeeper, took four members of the debate squad to the tournament of the Twin City Debate League (TCDL). The tournament was held on the Unlverslty of Minnesota campus. Our affirmaU ve teams, consisting of Edie Draheim and Eugene Cares, debated Macalester, Mankato State, and St. Thomas. Although our affirmative team Ilost these debates, they were encouraged by the ciose decisions rendered In these three contests. The negative team, composed of Cheryl Miller and Lois Luetke, debated Augsburg, Macalester, and Clustavus Adolphus. Again, although our negative team also lost their three contests, aclosa decision was given In the debate with Gustavus Adolphus. Af_ firmative competition from other schools against our negative

team was especially still. Of all the aUlrmative teams entered In the novice division, only three had undefeated records. Our negative team was slated to debate two of these three. This TCDL tournament involved nineteen major colleges from the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. The -'I'CDLis sald to have .some of the best novice competition In the entire Midwest. The novice division in which the DMLC team was entered, is for unexperienced debaters. However, most of the debaters from the other parti. cipating COlleges are' veteran high school debaters. Also, most of the debaters present at this tournament had gained experience by debating at the first TCDL tournament which DMLC was unable to attimd. Our team learned milch frolD this experience. It was a day f1l!ed with fun and excitamant, but more than this, it made our debaters more eager towork on their cases In anticiPation ofthe next 'tournament, -

The purpose of this group is to -providethe stu_ dents with comforts and enjoyments which can not ordinar1ly be provided. After registration a brief coffee hour, and an opening service, Mrs. Leonard Mmer, president of the group, called the business meeting to order. The first order of business was the election of officers to fill the expired terms of the. 1st vice-president and the treasur_ er.

After dinner, it was the student body's turn to show Its appreciation to these ladies by prOviding entertainment for them. A brief look at various campus organizations was the theme of the presentations. The Ch1ldren's Theater Group, a subsidiary of the Luther Literary League, dramatized a portion of the children's book "Winnie the Pooh." Rick Garcia, the president ofJunto, gave a brief talk on the purposes and activities of the current events club. To liven things up a bit, the cheerleaders, representing the Pep Club, led a student cheering section in a few of Luther's spirited cheers. The ~hiog!ston Club was represented by R.

The ladies were al. so given a "behind the scenes look at DMLC publications" as Delores Malehle andPatrlcia Murray, editors of the "Messenger" and 'ExcelSior," respectively, discussed a few "editorial problems."

Origin Of Thanksgiving

People are constantly evaluating their environment. Whether or not a person realizes it, his reactions to situations about him are a type of evaluation. One of the major: parts of every student's environment is school itself - courses, assignments, instructors. For years, each student has been analyzingtheir worth. Generally, such analysis has been silent or confinedto discussions in a small group. But why not channel the evaluation into areas where it can do some good?

Dr. Schweppe Lectures Dr. WI1lIam Schweppe, one at the Wisconsin SynOd's missionaries in Zambia, Africa, showed students his sllde lecture, a collection Of "personal pictures taken from time to time," 9urlng an appearance at tbe c:mege on Dec. 7. Dr. Schweppe Il,Sed tile slides to Illustrate his cJ?lDDlents on the work that has bOOn done and that yet remains to be done In Africa. . Dr. Schweppe's station, one of 20 in Zambia, seeks to provide for the physical and spiritual needs ot the people. By going into the villages the missionaries take tIlelr services also to those who are not able to visit the statton. The mlssioo's beadquarters Is located In the modern c1\y Of Lusaka. Tile mission has, in addition, five or six preaching stations in Malawi (formerly Nyasa_ iand)•. Among Dr. Schweppe's co-workers In Malawi are Pastors COl[and Mueller. The work of the mission Is carried on through weekly Instructlcil ·classes and regular Sunday Services at the stations. Services are often conducted by EngUsh.-speaklng lay-preachers, -Who' are trained at the mission's Bible school. Although tile school Is newlyestablished, It Is hoped that It . will help supply the needed pastors. The students of the . tiible school ·are encouraged

to continue their preparation and to become ordained pastors. The dispensary, conducted by Miss Lois stiDdt, provides much_needed medical care for the people. Weekly visits are made to villages In Which services are conducted and medical attention given to those who cannot come to the mission station. Among the problems shared by Dr. Schweppe and his coworkers are the combating of the animistic re1!glon of the people and the work Involved In becoming pro!iclent In the native language. Problems arising from the movement toward nationalism In Africa have not affected tile mission. In speaking of the grealness of the task of bringing tile people to Chrlsl1an11y, Dr. Schweppe stated that It otten requires several years of instruction before the people are ready for baptism and confirmation. But he also spoke ot this task as the "most wonderfUl calling anyone could possibly have, because Immortal souls are being won from an eternity ot doom for the glories of heaven." Dr. Schweppe will return to the mission station, about 40 miles from Lusaka In tile for-. mer colony of Rhodesia, shortly after the fir st Of _, the year.

"God's Advent to Mantt was the theme chosen for the Christmas decorations on the DMLC campus this year. The classes have cooperated in displaying various phases of the Christmas story to beautify the campus. As one enters the campus from Center Street, he will pass beneath an arJ:oway of gold glitter. Spotlights call attention to the word GLORIA and to angels displayed across the top and sides at the archway.PasaIng Hillview, one can see two nine-foot Christmas trees decorated with an array of colored lights. At the side entrance of the Administration Bnilding the word NOEL Is strung In lights within a wreath of greens high above the doorway. Two flvefoot Christmas trees call attention to this entrance, which Is identical to the decorated entrance on the opposite side of the building. On either side of the walk leading to the front entrance were constructed shepherds and wise men with camels. These figures are covered with aluminum fall and illuminated by red spotlights. Posted on the outside wall behind this display are the words f 'While shepherds watched their flocks" and "We have seen His sta,r." In Une with the pointing finger of one of the wise men is a large star of white lights, fastened above the doorway. The lobby has been converted into a manger scene. On the one hand Is an open stall, and opposite Is a Bible, which calls attention to the theme of the dtsplays on Its pages. On the walls above the displays are Scripture passages and silhouettes relating to the bearers of the promise In the Old Testamerit. Stars decorated with Christmas tree ornaments were placed between the silhouettes for a contrasting effect. The school auditorium has been converted into a scene giving the overall effect of a chapel. On the side walls were placed large stained glass windows of cardboard, each exhibiting .a Christmas scene. ;md (COIitinued on Page 3)

These are tile familiar carols passed on from generation to generation. The mass choir, under tile direction of Prot. ~ahn, will ren, der selections from J.s, Bach, and end wltll tile climactic •'Hal~ lelujah Chorus" from Handel's MESSIAH.

As on tile preceding night, an address will be made on behalf of tile faculty. Speakers for tile two evenings will be DMLHS president, Oscar Siegler, and DMLC president, Carl Schweppe.

Amid a feeling ot excitement, tile final Christmas concert for 1965 will begin. This Is tile night all students have been an, tlclpatlng for weeks. It marks tile close of school, tile beginning of vacation, and tile sight of tamlliar faces.

Just how Is this book compiled? The EXCELSIOR has two media with which to work: pictures and copy. The presence of pictures In the book implies the necessity of a photography staff. It may be a surprise to many that there Is more to taking pictures than the click of a shutter and the flash of a bulb. In order for a shot to be acceptable for use In the yearbook, the pictures must be extremely sharp.

There are both physiCal and. menW factors which play Important roles Inthis fleldo DMLC can be proud that it was represented by a soccer team thl~' year ••that displayed all of the qualities of a successful team. PhysiCally, the team.was endowed with an abundance of players, a coach that realized his Christian responslb1llty on and ott the playing fleld, and the desire of the players to keep their bodies physically conditioned for the, game. Mentally, the plaY';rs displayed a tremendous spirit tc! win. Although they went through an undefeated season these men also showed that they would have had the fortitude to accept losses. (All losses do not take place . on the scoreboard). Injuries, breaks of the game, and lack of size were all overcome by this team. Personal sacrifice was shown by all the players. Willingness to work long hours and being able to accept the fact that not all can participate as much as they would like was an accepted fact with this team. We can all be proud of Itl This year DMLC Is off to a great start on the baslcetball court. A good group of players reported. Once again the school Is represented by a coach who realizes the need for strong leadership. The season Is young, but It should be safe to say that these men w1ll have the desire to keep In top physical condition. Men" tilly there exists a tremendous spirit to win. Again we know that the boys w1ll be able. should it become necessary, to accept defeat honorably. . :,' Proper atUtuile and respect is a necessity. From the number Joe man on down to number sixteen the players should work bandIn-hand with the coach and each other for the benefit of all. Hard work and the abUlty to accept personal losses is part of the game. These aspects much and most assuredly will be accepted. . - Joe Lequi3.

Intramurals Intra murals are off to another rollicking season. Coach Dallman appointed tIve of his students to conduct the intramurals this year. Their work will be graded as part of the course Phy. sc., Health, and Safety (PEH&S). As a departure from other years, the basketball Intramurals are' set up In a double elimination tournament because of the number of teams and a time limitation. .The_first ga!!les_were_played. SUnday, Dec. 5. In high school competition the Rejects (R. Beckmann, capt.) beat the Apaches (Manuel Cruz, capt.), 60-19: the Lambs (Jerry

Editorial They say that sooner or later every editorial gets around to harping on Schoolspirit. First of all, the writer might present a definitionof school spirit. He might call it "an undefinable feeling" or "the basic attitude of a student body." Or he might resort to the informalapproach, saying that school spirit is the excitement at agame,cheerfulness in the hall, theneighborliness in the dorm. Next, the writer wouldanalyze the spirit in his school. He might deplore a lack of spirit, prod a moderate spirit, or, rarely, praise a good one. He would give examples to Illustrate his points, perhaps quoting such reliable sources as coach, cheerleaders, etc. Finally, our friendwouldlook to the future, inevitablyurging students on to greater participation in school activities. Now,what if this person were writing about DMLC?Wouldhe consider the spirit here as an expression ofpride? Whatwould he use as basis for this viewpoint? . Perhaps the writer would consider attendance at games and the cheers' of the crowd. He couldtake another angleand consider the cooperation on campus-wideefforts andactivities. He might speak of the enthusiasm for the "renovation" of our StudentUnionand the combined labors of all classes. Why, he might build his whole editorial around just this one point, showinghowthe students swept and scrubbed andhammered andpainted, and finally were immenselypleased with what they had accomplished. Another view would be the mentionof spectator participation at the Bethany and Rochester games. Surely, a writer could greatly expand on the school spirit that was so much in evidence on those occasions. Finally, the writer mighturge the student body to throw its all into Snow Carnival week with its varied activities. The only problem in ali of this is that authorities claim editorials for college papers should avoidthat greatly overworked topic, "school spirit." Too bad - our friend would have had a great case in favor of the students of DMLC! - Delores Maichle

Spotlight: Beginner's Band The Beginner's Band, otherwise known as B Band, Is an organlzation open to both college and high school students. The purpose of this organization Is to acquaint students with Instruments so they can play well enough to get Into the concert band. The B Band is an extracurricular activity which meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the regular band period. This year the B Band Is comprised of 14 members under the direction of Professor Hirsch. It includes three clarinets, two flutes, two trombones, two trumpets, four drums, and one saxaphone. The students are taught to sustain tones so that they can play simple metodies as a group. Lately they have begun to play -short harmonizing pieces such as marches. Although the group got a late start this year because of a lack of Instruments, Professor Hirsch lbe" Beginner's Band is progressing satisfactorily.

DMLC Life Discussed The Speaker's Corps, a volunteer organization of students whose purpose Is to acquaint people of our synod with the purpose of and the everyday life at DMLC, has been quite act! ve In the last few weeks. On February 6, Dave Jacobs and JudY Winter accompanied Professor Brick, the recruitment director, to Zumbrota, Minnesota, ,where they spoke to 35 young people about teaching In general, teaching In a Lutheran School, and life at DMLC. On February 11, this same group plus Roger Sievert and Jeanl Mueller journeyed to Omaha, Nebraska. At 5:30 that evening the New Ulm delegation and a number of teen-agers from several Omaha-area congregations were supper guests of the young people's SOciety at Good Shepherd Congregation. Fcllowtng the supper; the DMLC delegation had an opportunity to talk to these students about our school. To start the presentation, the four seniors gave the young people a glimpse of a typical day at Luther via a humorous skit. This day naturally began at the early hour of 6:00 a.m, and lasted until the wee morning hour of 1:00. After the humorous escapade, the presentation turned to a more serious vein. At this time the students discussed the function and life of Dr. Martin Luther College In detail. Following this discussion, Prof. Brick showed his Illustrated slide lecture of the campus and Its many activities. At 8:00 this same evening, the ahove agenda was again presented. This time tile audience was composed of the members of the Ladles' Aid Society of Good Shepherd and their guests.

Sleep, sweet sleep. Where Is sweet sleep? Some men have solved sleepless nights with a small pill - Gulp! Presto! No more Insomnia. That remarkable little thing called the sleepy pill cures Insomnta.but wbatts there to. rid a student of his sleepless nights? Nothing. No, not even a.Sleeplng pill w1ll solve the problem. . . Sleel', .. says SCience, Is necessary to recharge man's battery so be can run full steam ahead again the next day. But there are two kinds 'of sleep - nighttime sleep and daytime sleep. Nighttime sleep Is the recharging variety; sleeping during the day Is something like using jumper cables - It just gets the motor started again. Most colleglates are masters of daylight sleeping. When the battery wears down, the motor Is sparked WIth a catnap, hardly satiSfYing, but It will do Ina pinch. Inducers of daylight sleep: pages orbturr; Ing print to read, a test In the morning, a paper to write, a meeting to attend, last week's unlroned wash. The best and surest Inducer of daylight sleep Is a professor's droning voice. This fact may be easily proven by counting the number of bobbing. nodding heads In any given classroom. Nighttime sleep Is what students need, but never get. They're caught up In a vicious circle Which requires catnaps all day. The time spent napping Is lost and must be made up by burning the midnight oil. "I'Is a mad, mad cycle. I Am Not Bound To Win I am not bound to win, But I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, But I am bound to live up to what light I have. .

Rumors are out that some members of our class have packed up plllows and toothbrushes and moved In, leaving only long enough to eat and attend classes.

Atter a hectic two weeks of cleaning, painting, rearranging, and redecorating, the stu U has taken on a new look. Now no one would guess that this was once a mud-filled, fiy-Intested campus "catch-all." . The idea of a Student Union on our campus was first 1n1-

tlsted In the early '50's. The only avallabla location for the establ1shment of such a place

Page 3

was the basement of the old Music Hallwhichhadprev!ously been used as a boller house and a storeroom. After finding this location, the tremendous job of converting It Into a pleasant place where students could soclal1ze was undertaken. According to a rellable source, mud, mud, and more mud was hauled out of the place before they could even See the noor;

The improved Student Union is the result of much labor on the part of DMLCstudents. but the task was finally completed and the Union started to take shape. The middle '50's saw many improvements In the appearance of the SU and its tac1l1ties. The walls were White-washed, the poles were painted gray andmaroon (school colors, of course) and a re. frlgerator, ice cream f~eez.er, grill,-and -a few'-gam-es-were'" acquired. Later years also saw

equipment Improvements such as a TV, a ping pong table, a pool table, and a pop corn popper, to mention only a few. AlthoughImprovements were made through the years, the converted storeroom silll left something to be desired; so the StUdent Councll Inaugarated a renovation program in hopes that the Stu U could become a more appetlxlng place for the stUdents to spend their leisure time.

Stick your hand in a pall of water sometime. Move It around rapidly and make a disturbance, The normal state of the water he_ comes upset. Now take your hand out of the patt, What happens? ot course, the water returns to lts normal state, and the presence of your hand can no longer be detected. ,This can be applied to many things in Ilfe; not the least of these is the realm of sports. Many athletes "stock their hands in a pail of water." what that hand Is doing is what counts. The person that gives in to something and make no commotion at all is not very Ilkely to succeed. Eagerness and drive are necessities. If a person stands still, his surroundings will eventually do the same. When a person with the spirit to work and willingness to sacrifice enters this "pail of water," his presence will be felt by others; it becomes contagious. While his hand is in the water, the water can never stand still and become stagnant. After his period of "splashing" is through, there will be another person to assume his role as leader. , On the other extreme, there are those who will make the water, turbulent. Jumping in head first without regard for others could upset the boat. A person such as this could splash so hard he might cause the water to leave the pail. Like others we will sooner or later leave the pail, When he is gone, the water will return to normal, and all he will have to show for his career is a wet hand. His presence wtn not be felt when he has retired. He may splash and splash for his own personal benefit, but he will not be missed by others. No matter how good an athlete Is, there Is always someone better who can replace him. - Joe Lequia

Rams to Wisconsin While most of the students were taking It easy during semester break, the Luther High basketball team was traveling to Wisconsin for games with Onalaska Lutheran, Fox Valley Lutheran, and Manitowoc Lutheran. The first game was against the undefeated Onalaska team, which Is presently rated tenth In the state of Wisconsin. in the small school bracket. The Rams put up a terrific battle, only to fall short, 78-75. Bruce Heckmann and Gary Schoeneck led the scoring with 24 and 19 points respectively. On the following day Luther traveled to Appleton for a game with a very strong Fox Valley team. The Rams were outscored 28 to 8 In the firs t pe rtod and were never able to catch up. The final score read 82 to 35. Tom Brauer led Luther with 8 points. The next foe for Luther was Manitowoc LHS, where once again It was story of a cold first quarter. Manitowoc jumped off to a 28 to 11 lead. The Rams closed the gap to 4031 at half time, but failed to catch UP. The final score was 76-63. Tom Brauer once again paced Luther with 22 points. Wlthough they lost all three games, the Rams had an enjoyable weekend, For some of the players, it was their first look at these Lutheran high schools. The trip to _Wisconsin Is usualty made every other year. On the off year the Wisconsin schools travel to Minnesota, and DMLSH play,S host.

Girls' basketball is becoming organizedl til past years, as any spectator can tell you, this game looked like a free-for-all rather than an organized sport. However, this year things have changed. The girls are playing boys' rules now and are really learning how th~ game is supposed to be played. Two of the parttctpatmg ,teams actually know how to use a zone defense effectively. The change In ,.rules has also effected a change In the final score. In previous years, a team was lucky if It managed to score a mlxlmum of 30 points In a game. This season, however, scores In the fifties and sixties have been reached. Quite a bit of the roughness whiCh was associated with', this Intramural sport In the P,ast has also been

Sports Classic Reviewed Our DMLC Lancers came out In second place In this year's Blue Waters Classic. The first game found the team matched against the Comets of Concordia College. After being downed by one point at halftime, the Lancers, led by Bob Schroer and Dale Walz, came roaring back to outscore the Comets 50 to 34. Leading scorer was Schroer with 26, who was followed closely by Gronholz with 21 and Walz with 18. The final score was: Luther 90, Concordia 75. The next game found DMLC playing the Bethany scoring machine. Dale Walz again had a heavy hand, finding the bucket for 28 points. Our Lancers scored 90 points, only to be beaten by Bethany's 121. A good crowd cheered for our In a game well played., Thus for the second consecutive year Bethany's Vikings kept the Blue Waters Classic trophy at home. In the game against Rochester on January 12 our Lancers found success. Sprengler .and Walz had 26 and 23 points, respectively. Jack Gronholz did a good job of defense on Gorham, Rochester's leading scorer. FInal score was Lancers 102, Rochesler89. Our second game with Concordia found Lancers on the short end of things at the final gun. Many mistakes proved costly as Concordia took advantage of them. Bob Schroer led , in scoring with 22; Walz and Gronholz were close behind.. Concordia finished off with 81 to Luther's 74. At Austin our boys put out a supreme effort and were rewarded with 119 to 117 overtime victory. The score was knotted" at, 108 at 'the ~close" of regulation time. Austin tallled nine points In the overtime period before the Lancers could score. Showing their never-say-dle spirit, OUrboys scored 11 straight points and displayed fine defensive effort to bring home the win. eliminated because some of the fellows have been drafted to officiated at these games. SInce the hoys are more familiar with the rules than most girls, they are able to keep the game In bounds. This year the four teams entered In competition are quite evenly matched, The Post Teasties, witha perfect record, are holding down first place. Close behind them are the Sharpshooters, Mark's Marvels, and the Bucketeers who are all tied for second place with one loss apiece. Slnceit'sstillanybody's race, the rest of the season should prove very interesting and exciting.

Luther's team snowed a good balanced scoring attack against WUlmar. Five of the seven men who played were In double figures with a sixth man close behind with nine. Dale Walz was, our high scorer with 24 points. The f1na1 score was WUImar 105, Luther 99. Over semester break our Lancers suffered perhaps their most humillatlng 'deteat. Again , our opponents caplta11zed on numerous mistakes and lnabUIty to find the hoop, Mark Sprengler had 19 of our 81 points; EstervUle scored 118. What a way to get a sore throat! Our Lancers proved that they could play up to the calIber ofanationallyranked team. "A game and a half" Is the way to describe It. Two overtimes, 246 total points, a packed gymnasium, and a supreme effort on the part of coach and team ware all ingredients In a real «eam-ournsr." Twice Mark Sprengler's clutch shootIng snetthe game Into extra minutes. Although the final score showed a loss, team effort and morale were those ofa winning team. Perhaps the best summary statement was made by an anonymous fan In the stands when he simply said, "Next year." Coming off a game that could have gone elther way, the Lancers tal11ed another thrUier against Rochester. Again the excellent defense of Gronholz and the clutch shoOting of sprengler proved to be the deciding factors In an 82-80 victory. Sprengler led all scorers with 25 POints. School and team spirit were at a height as Sprengle rode the sholders of his teammates to the locker

Our last game vias played at Worthlngion. Dale Walz and Mark Sprengler were again our leading scorers In a 77-71 loss. As a summary of these last 10 games wi; can say the following: we won four and lost six, great thrUis .were enjoyed by the team and fans, andwe're all looklng forward to a thrUllng close of the season. "We like our team!"

What Price Speaking In His Name Choir Tour? The college choir is on the move. Beginning March 13th, the choir gave the first of its pr-e, tour concerts at St, Paul's Lutheran Church, North Mankato, Minn. Following the service, a dinner was served by the ladies of the congregation. The longest pre-tour was taken March 20th, when at 10:00 the choir sang for morning services at St. John's in Hastings, Minnesota, and then gave a complete concert pe rformance at 3:00 and 6:00 in Red Wing (St. John's) and Minneapo , its-(Filgri[!12, respectively. On March 27th an-abbreviated concert was given in tile morning service at St. Paul's, Jordan, Minnesota, followed by a complete concert in the afternoon at St. James Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Minnesota. The pre-tour concerts prepare the members both physically and mental ly for the tour season itself. Not only do the scheduled concerts mean early rising and late retiring, but they require personal preparations on the part of each member.

PROFESSOR CONRAD FREY has accepted the call to become the next president of Dr. Martin Luther College.

Meet President Frey Professor Conrad I. frey, president of Michigan Lutheran seminary, has accepted the can to succeed Carl L. SChwep_peas president of Dr. Martin Luther Conege. Professor Schweppe, who has served in the capacity of president for the past 32 years, resigned this position at the close ot the school year last fall. With the acceptance of this call, Professor Frey becomes DMLC's eighth president since .estabttsament of the college 82

Professor Frey, the oldest of eleven children, was born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1914. Alter spending a number of years there, the Frey family moved to

Graceville, Minnesota, where Prolessor Frey spent most olhis childhood. He then attended DMLHS, Northwestern College, and Wisconsin Lutheran Semiaary, Upon graduation from the seminary, he was assigned to Michigan Lutheran Seminary as

Frey, who has served as a member :o( the Synod's Commission 'lin ~'world Relief and the spiritual Welfare Commission, is presently chairman of the Synod's Advisory Com rnisston on Education. Professor Frey, who holds a Master's Degree In history with a minor in English, will assume DMLC's prestdentiat duties at the end of this school term. Many may wonder what the presidency of an Institution such as our actually invol ves. When asked this question, President Schweppe responded in this manner: "He (the president) is responsible for everything that goes on here. Like Harry Truman, he should have a sign on his desk which reads, 'the buck stops here.' II As presIdent, Professor Frey will have the general supervision of all the college's departments, bUildings, grounds, and equipment. As well as seeing that the purpose of this teachertraining center Is recognized, he will be the official representat! ve of the school. It will also be his responsibility to see that all documents, transcripts, and correspondences are properly conducted. Although President Schweppe will no longer serve as president of DMLC, he will continue to serve as a member of the faculty and will again be teaching Shakespeare and contempora ry history

nextyear,

The second annual Mission Workshop at DMLC was held on Friday, March 25. The first workshop, held last year, was very well received, and considered highly interesting and informative by many who participated. On the schedule for this year's Workshop were presentations by guest speakers, faculty mernbe rs, and the sections of the III

8:15-9:05 - Presentation of the topic, "Mission Work is com municating the Gospel" by College In, followed by discus. sian.

and IV College classes. The guest speakers were Pastor F. Nitz of St. John's, New uim, a former missionary among the Apaches andmemberoftheboard for Spanish Missions. Pastor Nitz spoke on the Apache Mission. While only the ill and IV College classes participated directly In tb.e workshop, students of all classes were invited to attend the various sessions.

10:25-11:15 - Presentation of the topic, "Communication Media - Their Uses and Limitations" by College Ill, followed by discussion.

Below is the schedule of events at the Mission Workshop: 7:45-8:10 - Special Mission Workshop Chapel, conducted by Professor Schwark.

The 'presentations were augmented by a display on If AudioVisual Media in Communicating the Gospel," constructed by a College IV committee.

11:30-12:15 - Dinner. 12:30-2:30 _ Panel discussion on the topic, "Communicating to Children and Through Children," presented by College IV.,

The pre-tour concerts, however, not only concern the college choi r, but also its director, Professor Metlahn Zahn, It is his concern that the music selected is rendered at peak per , formance, Which necessitates many hours of preparation. Behind the scenes another individual, Prof. Brick, is concerned with the well-being of the seventy touring choir members. Congregations must be contact. ed, a schedule must be worked out for departure and arrival times, posters must be mailed, and arrangements with the host congregations, concerning meals and lodging, must be confirmed.

THIS DISPLAY was constructed for the Student Mission Workshop, held on March 26.

Christ Is Arisen Sunday. March 27, 6:00 p.m. will mark the beginning of the second annual Easter Concert to be given by the DMLIIS and DMLC choirs. The concert will open with the high school choir singing If Surely He Hath Born Our Griefs," "Christ Is Arisen," and IIHal_ Ielujah l Amen." Following these numbers will be those sung by the high school chorus. Among their selections are flGo Ye into All the World, JJ "Easter Fanfare," with organ and brass accompaniment, and." For the Beauty of the Earth." Both high school choirs a re under the direction of Professor Hirsch. The 165-member treble choir will open the college portion of this Festival of Sacred Songs. This treble choir is a combination of the Treble I and Treble II chotrs, both of which are directed by Mr. Ronald Shilling. Among the selections to be presented by the treble choir are lfO Sinne r Come Thy Sin to

Mourn," "BleSSing, Glory, Wisdom," and "0 Joyous Easter Morning" with oboe, violin, cello, and bassoon accompaniment. Concluding the concert will be Professor Schenk's College Chorus. "Lord of our Life," (the setting of the third Sunday In Lent), and "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" will be included in their seiections. The College Chorus began its rehearsals at the beginning of the second semester. Because the chorus is so large it is necessary that it rehearse in two separate groups. However, as of late, the groups ha ve gotten together for joint rehearsals. The Festival of Sacred Songs was begun last year upon the suggestion of Miss Ruth Backer, former director of the treble choirs. It is hoped that this Festival of Sacred Songs will become tradition like the annual DMLC Christmas Concert.

The total of seven committee reports was a bit overwhelming,especially whenone considers the number of individual speaker topics within each. Since there are many ways for all to participate in the Workshop, notably in the areas of research and dts-' play construction, committees should not feel compelled to have all their members speak before the group. In some cases, it was unfortunate that the time limits were not adhered to more rigidly. The importance of time limitation shouldreceive more emphasts. This is not to say that discussion must necessarily be curtailed, but the actual presentation should be kept within bounds. On the positive side, many good things can be said about last week's Workshop.Bringing in new ideas is an especially fine practice. The committee on "What doweoweouryouth?" offered a practical program for youthorganization.Suchoriginal thinking is the type 'lf thing which produces a successful workshop. Another committee, dealing with "Problems in communication in foreign fields" varied its presentation by having speakers pose at members of a translation board. This unique delivery clearly showed problems inoommunlcatingwitb foreign nations in their own dialects. Those concerned with next year's program ought to find other ways of presenting material besides straight reporting.

Time Out There are many characteristics which mark a person as finally havinggrownto maturity. There are also many characteristics of a ball team andits fans whichshow that it has come of age. This year these characteristics evidencedthemselves Onthe hardwood courts of our school. Our new Lancers showedall the earmarkings of a winningball club. They proved that they could hold their ownagainst almost insurmountableoddsandplay the brand of basketball so manyofus havelongedto see. Also the coaching staff has reached a point of greater maturity. Thecoaches have brought a team ofyoungsters intoa positionthatcould lead to heights never before reached in the college basketball conference. They have taught the players to accept defeat gracefully and have provided a spirit that wUlbevery hard to defeat. Our fans have matured also. Attendance during previously lean years had dropped off as soon as the boys lost a few games. It was a pleasure to the ears to hear male voices raised in cheers for the Lancers as the entire student body stood behind the team. Yes, we have finally ar-

rived! Next year's team wUlshowalmost all the same faces returning to the proving ground. Dare we now rest on our laurels and hope that the Lancers have a better showingIn 1966-67?My answer to that question Is a very definite NO!Nowthat we have come of age our team needs our support more than ever.

As the curtain rises, we see a gypsy mountebank or quack named SOogg(played by Jeremy Scbarlemann) In possession of a magic pair of red dancing sboes. SOoggtravels to a pic-

Throughout the concert, a happy sight of springtime will prevail. The participating girls all dressed in their soft pastel colored dresses are sure to bring the picture of a garden of flowers to mind. ThIs concert promises much variety. The program Includes selections by the Band, individual selections by both the Aeollans and the Marluts, and several joint numbers. These groups under the direction of Mr. Zimmermann, Bob Kuehn,andJanice Welshahn have a great concert lined up; but they would rather not disclose all the numbers which they have In store for the audience.

Spring has finally 'arrived. Although old man winter is valiantly fighting to hold out as long as possible, he is gradually losing the battle. Withthe coming of spring, everything once again begins to blossom. Life is once more restored in nature. However,not onlyinnature is life apparent, but it is also apparent on our campus as a look at the accomplishments of the recent Arbor Daytestify. Suddenly the drab, listless campus became a bustling hub of activity as everyone swarmed over the area armed either with rakes, shovels, or other tools. A few even pitched in to aid some ofthe professors incleaning up their yards. It took the cooperation of all to make Arbor Day a success. There were some complaints made, .but on the whole, everything worked out smoothly.Congratulations are in order to those who planned this day and to the student body for executingthese plans. Also at this time of the year many class activities and various organizational picniCS are also held. Since everyone has worked so hard together all year, why not join in the funand excitement of these activities, also? These activities are planned with you, the student, in mind. They are an opportunity to enjoy yourself for they give variety to our school life. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy; R. Huebner

r-----------t I SPIEL VONTISH

As future teachers, I thought the students of this school might be interested to learn of a new boon to the teaching profeSSion - the correcting machine. Though It Is not as yet perfected, the correcting machine has great posslb1l1ties and wlll someday be a great help to teachers of every grade level. In fact, It will be so much help that teachers wlll be able to double their golf time and practice organ an extra hour every week without losing another moment's sleep I The beauty of the machine Is Its size small enoughto fit snugly into theaverage desk drawer and out ofthe reach ofcurious students, Since It Is transistor operated (Isn't everything?), the device can even be operated under these conditions. ImagineI After collecting a ream of papers from the class, one can just Insert them in the drawer and the machine goes to work. Nothingto it I The makers of the machine are all former teachers (whoseem to findit more profitable to work for their colleagues' benefit) and, as such, recognize the diff1culUes

sometimes

encountered

in cor-

recting papers. For this reason, theyhave developedanynumberofattachmenis which will allow for slight alterations in the correcting process. There Is for instance a device which judges neabtess and ac~

curacy of penmanship. Another is able to decipher the hieroglyphics often encountered on mathematics papers. For the prt., mary grades,. the machine is a whiz at judging the meaning Intended by any picture fed into the slot. The correcting mach1neIs fantastically Intelligent. No longer does one need a key to any test or exercise given to the class. The machine automatically knowsthe answers to any questions asked In the fields of history, geograpby, math, science, English, spelling, religion, and recess. Fan. tastlcl Manufacturers are- at the, presaAt time workingon an attachmenttheycall the Entwistle device. When this IS booked up to the correcting mach1ne,It will be able to correct essay papers. Essentially, the Entwistle device makes a reading machine of the correcting machine - with the exception that a grade Is still atlached to the paper. And just what is the teacher's role In all this? All the teacher must do Is remove the recording roll from the machine at the end of each day. On this roll the

machine has recorded all the answers or responses given by each student on each of the papers fed It that day. By simply working through this roll and evaluating its contents, the teacher Is able to record a grade for each paper in the dally record book. However, the machine has not as yet been perfected so that It Is able to do such fine work as recording grades. With the recognition of its desperate need for help that the teachingprofession Is nowreceiving, no one doubts that this development is yet In the otfering. What will the future bring? Time will tell.

Hopes and aspirations run high, while everyone walts In anticipation for Call Night, May25th. . This subject pervades every hour of waking and sleeping. This night is the climax of three or four years of college education, since It completes the goals of college life at Doctor Martin Luther College. Four years of college life makes us seem apart from the world. Practice teaching brings this separation to a reality. Then call night sets forth the responsibility which we all should have acquired during this tenure. We have been discussing Call Night without a qualified definition. We may define this Call Night as the "festival of the Holy Ghost." It Is this night that the Soard of Education of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, district presidents, and presidents of our synodIcal institutions decide under the guidance of the Holy Ghost where the members of the graduating class wlll receive their calls, Formerly this night was always on a Friday, but because of the Increased enrollment, the Call Committee has decided to separate the calls for the pastors and teachers to be held on two different days. Thus Call Nlgbt will for the first time be on a Wednesday evening. This night means very much to the prospective teacher. It is the fulfilment of d1l1gentstudy and tbe attalnment of his goal for education. It is the beginning of his new career of teaching In the field of Christian education andthe ministry of the Lord. This ideil Is awesome and perhaps frightening when we realize the huge responslbUity he is about to undertake. The Class of 1966 waits In expectation for this night. When Jesus asks, "Who wlll go and work today?", each member of this class dedicated to his task will gladly answer, "Here am I,

EditorialOn Saturday, May 21, students and facultymembers alike gathered at Turner Hallto attend the annual Activities Banquet. This is a big Event on campus, one of the major highlights of the year. The banquet was well attended, decorations were insurpassable, the best ever; and the meal was delicious. A pat on the back and a round of applause or standing ovation is certainly in place for the committee who organized this banquet. Without their help and effort, it would not have been the success it was. However, certain complaints have been voicedaboutthis banquet. Manyfeel it was too long. The program should have been shortened, with less speeches and entertainment. Others felt it was boring to just sit andwatch others get awards. Then, too, they felt that the guests were left in the dark, not knowingthe organizations on campus, the awards given, or the people receiving awards. A large consensus of opinion has recommended having two banquets. One banquet would be strictJ.y an awards banquet and the other wouldbe more a social banquet, with fun and entertainment as the objective. Many students feel that a social banquet would be a more appropriate place at which to wear formal attire and also for whichto makeelaborate decorations. This is indeed something to think about. For as our student body grows, so do our campus organizations, clubs, and athletic department. A shorter awards banquet wouldalleviate quite nicely boredom, tendency to leave early, and "sit-itis." A social banquetwouldprovide good entertainment and relaxation, which could also be thoroughlyenjoyedby outsiders and guests. Perhaps the time has come when some changesshould be made. You, as the student body, must consider the matter and decide. R. Huebner

Students Pay Consequences How many people do you think could fit In a car? At the College Spring Ac;

tivity held Thursday night, May 26, the Juniors proved that thirty-three people can fit In a car at one time. Thrllling consequences were played as a result of falling to answer questions onthe "Truth or Consequence" show. The M.C., Carl Natzke, asked for volunteers from the audience to parttctpate In this game. Consequences Included a couple sitting on a twenty-five pound block of Ice, boys putting makeup on other boys, people picking jelly beans out of cream pies without hands, and also a ple_eatlng contest won by Diane Detert and Jim BlIltz. Professors Hartwig and Frederick also contributed to the fun by countingthe number of squares on a roll of tlssue paper. Larry Joecks was called up on stage to relate a few Incidents to the audience which occurred on the Trl-State Convention.

News From The Classes IV The Senior Class of 1966 Is beginning the final phase of the .climatic road to graduation. On May 31, our class had Its final activity. It began with a midmorning breadfast at Flandreau Park; and baseball, hamburgers, and sight-seeing fllled the day. The day closed with the annual Faculty-Graduate banquet. This banquet was held at the Orchid Inn In Sleepy Eye. A smorgasbord spread plus some enjoyable entertainment filled the menu. Professor Zahn acted as "MZ" and the representative of Hevens." Professor Schweppe gave words to grow on as "the twig is bent.'J Class presIdent, David Jocobs, extended the feeUngs of the class and appreciation to the faculty and advisors. At this time also, the Class of 1966 Wishes to extend Its gratitude and thanks to the faculty for presenting such a banquet for us. This Is one key moment of college life that will always be remembered by each and everyone of us. The end of college Ufe Is fast approaching and graduation day 15 seen on the horizon. Four years of college have brought lasting friendships, hopes and anzteties, good times, and the high point of all college trainIng, Call Night. Graduation Is an end to this nre, but a beginning of our new lives as teachers in the service of our Lord.

s.c.

III May 17 will go down In history as Artie Hellman Day, for on this day at 4:00 ante meridian the juniors embarked on a journey through the dark muddy ravine down to Flandrau for a breakfast of coffee, sweetrolls, milk, orange juice, and home cooked bacon and eggs. The food was demolished In time for an oncoming thunderstorm. James Boehm's anti-rain dance falled to produce the desired results. The troopers returned In time for classes with drenched clothes and full tummies. Class Activity - Part II occurred the next evening. Engaging In more cultural pursuits, two busloads of drama students dropped In on a Mankato State College Drama Guild production of "The Taming of The Shrew, by Willy Shaxpyr. The play Was excellent, superb, uproarious, hilarious, magniflque, and ausgezeichnet, with a fine moral lesson behind It fight fire with fire. All in all the evening was an "unforgetable".

II Anothe r school year is about to end, and it finds all sophs looking forward to our last dutyfinal exams. Turning to brighter things, next year our present class enrollment will grow considerably when we weicome the collegiates from MLTC.

Concludes Year's Work

Students Elect Larry As the 1965-66 school year draws to a close, the members of the college student Council finished their business, The past two weeks were filled with actlvitles, and last minute preparations were completed for the coming school year. Under the new constitution, which must be ratified by the students next fall, the Collegiate Council presidential elections were Mid this spring. Running for the office of President were Lenny Collyard and Larry Joecks, This election procedure was well received as over 75% of the student body turned out to cast Its vote. The new president for the '66-'67 school year Is Larry Joecks. Besides the campaign speeches which preceded the election, two Joint assemblies were held for the student body to explaln the new constitution, and also

A special thanks to Rita Bremer and lone Jaeger, co-chairmen of the College Activities Banquet. The time and effort put Into the banquet festivities by all Involved was greatly appreciated by all who spent an enjoyable evening. Our College Spring Activity finally took place at Herman Park. Carl NatZke served as M.C. Although College n participated In the various contests we never seemed to beat the juniors. Maybe next year our luck will change when we have the coveted name of juniors .. Many of College II men received recognition at the College Activities Banquet for their participation In the various ath, letic activities throughout the school year. The men proved to be an asset to all teams, and did a fine job. Both baseball and soccor championship titles testify to their fine ab1l1ty. June Night wUl find all sophs strong in voice and anxious in spirit. With the last strains of "Sing Your Way Home" we leave the hill for the "few" summer months, to return in the fall as Juniors. Mayall have a study-free funtime summer!

I The Freshman Class has been winding up their first year at college with a multitude of sen, sattonal activities. Everyone had a riotous time at our roller skating party. Then there was the Activities Banquet. If any of the girls found the banquet too relaxing they all managed to get thefr exercise by performing the 660 yard walk-run, the 50 yard dash, the

ventlon which was held at North Dakota. Representing the eouncll at this convention were Larry Joecks, Barb Kuhn, Rita Bremer, and Roxanne Redlin. The two Student Councll actlvltles rounding out the school year were the Activities Banquet and the Spring Activity. The latter, held at Herman Park, was an innovation. Class competion and good cooperation made the event successful. The council members have been appointed to beheads of the various committees for the orientation program next fall. Also a chairman has been se; lected for the fall activity. Along with these appotnted positions, individual members are also working on the '66-'67 calendar dates, the Collegiate Council Handbook and the Council Inventory. These activities w1ll keep the members busy throughout the summer and Into the new

shuttle run and other such de , vices provided by the physical education department which produced an entire Freshman Class of crippled girls. Next came the College Activt; ty. I guess we were all pretty big eaters, because we stuffed the fewest feet In the bucket, and we didn't get quite enough bodies in the car either. Pre-final examination preparanon, otherwise known as cramming, will no doubt start very soon. Until that time arrives most of our class members are managing to occupy their time play, ing cards, strolltng about the campus, chatting with friends, lying on the sun deck Or some similar pursuit. At least ev_ e ryons Is enjoying the beautl , ful spring weather. The greatest news of all Is that there are only eighty-nine days until our return to DMLC

92 Collegiates Receive Financial Assistance lly now ninety-two students from the college department have or will have received money In the form of scholarships, grants or aids. There are twenty-five seniors, thirty_ three juniors, nineteen sophomores and tlfteen freshmen re_ cel ving this money. About two months ago the scholarshlps were awarded and now the grants and aids wlll be given. The Scholarship Committee, made- up of the following men: Professor Hoenecke, chairman, Professor Birkholz, Professor Sievert, Dean Hahnke, and President Schweppe, deter_ mines who should receive the scholarship or grant and then submits the list to the Faculty for approval.

Scholarships are awarded to those who are the highest In the class. Grants and alds are giv_ en to those In need of financial assistance. The assistance giv_ en ranges from no less than $100 to no more than $300. This year the Scholarshlp Committee had a total of $10,078.31 from Which to work. Aid Association to Lutherans contributed $4500, the Wisconsin Synod added $3797, and DMLC received $1781.31 from other sources. The other sources Include the Schwanz, Schweppe, Neubert, Spindler, Nitschke and Gross funds, as well as the DMLC Ladles Aux_ 1l1ary, and st. Paul's of New Ulm.

PrO Hosts Future Teachers On May 24th, the St. Paul's Parent-Teacher's Organization hosted Its annual Student Teaeh., ers APpreciation Night. The evening began with a pot ..!UCK supper. It was obvious to see, judging from the number of second helpings, that all agreed the meal was delicious and the variety endless. After the meal, parents and graduates who had not practice taught at St. Paul's, were en, tertained by this year's st. Paul's student teachers. True to their calling, the student teachers presented four skits On "education." First on the Ust was an old German school con, dueted by UHerLehrer," other.. wise known as Bob Adrian. ,

Next, moving to modern times, Miss Roekle showed the audience the rigors of teaching modern math. The third group presented a typical practice room situation, however, with the tables turned. Dave Jacobs served as the supervisor, while Miss Meyer was the student teacher. The final skit presented a typical progressive school where the pupils did all the plan , ning. Miss Luetke found this to be a rather Inefficient method of conducting school. Master of Ceremonies, Bob Wolff kept the program moving nicely, and all agreed that another student Teacher's Appreciation Night had been a success. _

Ras Sievert, George Rice, and Prof. Koelpln look on as Prof. Schroeder congratulates Jeremy Scharlemann with a Luther Literary League award.
