hands of the Comets and elate their fans with a victory. But that isn't all of the weekend. The homecoming guests will be treated to a sumptuous banquet on Saturday evening which will be prepared by the food service.

event on DMLC's campus. We mourn its passing. But football, the new sport which is taking its

Byron Manthe, Collegiate Council President

Manth ......e -,Get Involved Byron Manthe, new' Collegiate Council President, can be described in two words - enthusiastic and involved. Back after a year of emergency teaching in Adrian, Michigan, Byron has filled the vacancy left by Ned Goede. Ned, who was elected president last year, is out emergency teaching in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Byron feels that the ambition of this year's Collegiate Council will be "to get everyone really involved in campus life." He feels there is an activity or club for every student here, but it's up to the individual to take advantage cI. the situation." He believes in protest, but through ssta blished means;

"YO'Ucan't reforni the school rut you can keep the lines of cemmunlcation open between students and faculty and between the students themselves." His big goal is to get the student body keyed and enthusiastic about life in general and this school in particular. Byron believes that students here are different and shouldn't feel suppressed and restricted by the rules concerning dress, hair, and conduct. He put it this way, "I think a lot more people should be a little more mature and realize what it is to be a member of this 'Christian Family' and not give offense to another's faith. ..

The point the Collegiate Councilwants to make this year is that it isn't a secret organization on campus nor is it an elite group of the popular. The council is here to keep things rWJning smoothly, but no matter how qualified the representatives are, they don't feel they can do their best if the students don't come to them with complaints, suggestions and ideas. The Collegiate Council members and their advisor, Professor D. Raddatz welcome and urge the student body to sit in on the Tuesday night meetings. Although the students are not allowed to vote, they are encouraged to voice their opinions on any topic under discussion.

Lancers Topple Pillsbury In the last season for the DMLC Lancer soccer team, Coach Gary Dallmann's club had a slow start, losing to three tough non-conference teams. The Lancers showed some life by winnirig one conference game and losing one by a slim one-goal margin, . The Lancers opened the 1971 season at home on September 21 in a losing effort to a tough St. John's squad. Plagued by first game jitters and ball handling inconsistency, the Lancers trailed by a 0-4 score at halftime. in the second half the Lancers settled down and fixed several goodshots at the St. John's goal, only to be stopped by good defensive work by the St. John's goalie and fullbacks. St. John's managed to score twice more and shut out the Lancers 6-0. The following Thursday the Lancers traveled to St. Peter only to be beaten by Gustavus Adolphus, 5-0. The Lancers held this good Gustavus squad

scoreless until midway through the first period, when the Gusties broke loose for two quick goals. The Lancers then came back with a score, only to be called back on an offside irifraction. Out-hustling the Lancers the second period, the Gusties were able to score three more' times to defeat the Lancers 5-0. On a wet and misty Saturday, September 25th, here on the hill, the Lancers opened their conference season with a 6-3 victory over the Pillsbury Comets. Early in the game, senior Steve Carlovsky punched iri a goal for the Lancers. but the Comets quickly retaliated with two goals. Again the talented foot of Steve Carlovsky added a Lancer goal to tie the score at 22. Then on a corner kick from wing Bill Mashke, junior forward Paul Hartwig headed the ball into the Comet goal, and before the half ended Hartwig added stilll another goal to make the score 4-2 at halftime. in the second half Lancer cocaptain Kurt Schmidt scored on a break-away play. The Comets, struggling to come back, scored once more iri the second half. Nearing the end of the game, co-captain Dar Schramm pounded iri a shot from outside of the penalty area to make the final score 6-3. On Wednesday, September 29th the Lancers fell to Bethel

College at St. Paul, by a score of 11-2.Scoring one goal each for Luther were Steve Carlovsky and Paul Hartwig. in an October 2nd morning game at Concordia College in St. Paul, the Lancers bowed to the Comets 2-1, the Lancers' second conference game of the sesson. Both of the teams, spirits were high for the game, but a treacherously wet and muddy field hampered the ability to move the ball. Concordia drew blood early in the first half with a goal, followed quickly by a second goal on a break-away play. The Lancers then retaliated late in the first half with a goal off the foot of foward Steve Carlovsky. After a frustrating and scoreless second half, iri which the Lancers couldn't capitalize in any of their good chances at a goal, Luther left the field with a 2-1 defeat. Even though the Lancers have had their ups and downs this first part of the sesson, Coach Dallmann and his squad still have hopes of bringing home the conference hardware.

All Around Athlete Becomes New Football Coach at DMLC The reiritroduction of football at Dr. Martin Luther College this year brought a new face to the coaching staff. He is Coach Dennis Gorsllne, a native of Saginaw, Michigan. Coach Gorsline attended Michigan Lutheran Seminary where he earned an iricredible 14 high school letters. He was MVP four times: once each in football and basketball, and twice in track. In1961, Michigan Lutheran Semiriary was the State Champ in track. The new coach won the gold medal In the 100 yard dash, placed fifth in the long jump, qualified in the hurdles, and was a member of the first place 86G-yardrelay team. Coach Gorsline attended college at Northern Michigan University in Marquette. Here he received NAIA honorable mention all-state in football and was the leading ground gainer his junior year. Two years ago he played semi-pro football for the Flirit Wildcats of Flirit, Mich. While attending Northern Michigan, he majored in geography with a mirior in physical education. Since graduation' he has done additional work toward a masters in' physical education at Northern Michigan, Central Michigan, and Michigan State Universities. Before comirig to New Ulm, Coach Gorsllne laught for four years at a public high school In Davison, Mich. He combiried the teaching of social studies with being assistant football coach, JV basketball coach, and assistant track coach. Here at DMLC he Is teaching both the classroom and the

physical phases of phy ed. He enjoys phy. ed- because he can watch possible future athlete prospects but also enjoys teaching in the classroom. Besides getting football under way, Coach Gorslirie will be the assistant basketball coach and will coach the revived DMLC track team. Next year DMLC starts off the football season by playing Northwestern College of Watertown, Wisconsin. Having scouted them, Coach GorslIne feels the Lancers are "comparable" in size and speed. Havirig only a couple of 200 pounders, speed is important to Coach Gorslirie, who is more impressed with quickness than with size. Several scrimmages have been scheduled for this year. They are with the University of Minnesota, Waseca here on October 12; Mankato JV's on Oct. 19; and Waseca there on Oct. 30. Also there is the possibility of scrimmages with Concordia St. Paul, Gustavus, and the New Ulm Alumni. But no dates are set as yet. Captains have been selected for next year. They are Tim Bilitz, center and linebacker; Pete Zeu, liriebacker and end; and Steve Hahnke, halfback and cornerback. When asked about New Ulm and DMLC,Coach GorslIne said he was impressed with the friendliness of the small town. He also feels the campus spirit Is much better than he experienced in Michigan. Coach Gorsline lives on Waldheim Drive with his wife and six month old son, TO (Tod Dennis).

CONTEMPLATING the future prospects of his football team is head coach Dennis Gorsline with assistant coach Steve Gauger standing behind him.

American people should be taught to think things out and become more Involved In world affairs. Miss Sergio also feels that it would be In our equal Interest to bind ourselves Into some international framework. She feels China should be In the United Nations for a variety of reasons: Ithas some 800million . people, it has the opportunity for expanded markets for the United States, and nuclear weapons which may not be as

sophisticated as ours but which would be just as effective. Those who attended the Thursday evening lecture on the "Global Struggle for Power, Prestige and Oil In the Middle East" showed their Interest In the subject by asking many questions and extending the question and answer period to over an hour. The questions covered not only the material from her lecture but also many other areas of foreign affairs.

DMLC Endowed With Gift Dr. Martin Luther College is the grateful recipient of a $75,000gift given it in his estate by the late Mr. John Wischstadt of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota. According to the terms of the will, the total amount of the bequest is "to be set up in a permanent trust fund. Th~ income from such trust funds shall be used for scholarships for college studenta at Dr.. Martin Luther College who plan to teach in the church schools or enter the ministry. The recipients of the scholarships shall be selected on the basis of need by the college administration.

We thank God for this gift, coming from one consecrated to the cause of Christian education among our Synod's constituency.

"The harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest." (Matthew 9:37, 38) Use me, Lord, Use me, please! I know I'm not worthy I know I can't please. But if Christ is in me And God's love abides, Then I can be used To show Christ outside. The two prayers above were answered in one way this summer when teams of Lutheran Collegians helped mission churches In the

graduate of DMLC, Professor Stelljes taught - schools in. Morton Grove. Illinois, and Kenosha and Milwaukee, Wisconsin before returning to DMLC in 1952to teach history, music theory, and organ. He still is very active in the music department with theory classes and organ students. Before 1946,when he received a call to be Dean of students at DMLC, Professor Hoenecke was a pastor for various congregations in Washington and also Michigan. He was dean for seven years and then settled into the college religion department. Dogmatics is his main field and besides teaching it, Professor Hoenecke is currently working on his own dogmatics text book.

Canvassers Reach Unchurched In City Begun this spring, a canvassing program of New Ulm, has been' accomplished this year. Several DMLCstudents from New Uhn and a seminary student approached the pastors of St. John's and st. Paul's Churches in New Uhn with the idea of canvassing the town. The pastors encouraged this idea and Prof. Darwin Raddatz was contacted to organize and advise them. The religious survey was undertaken to discover the unchurched in the town. The canvassing is being financially supported by the two congregations and all results of the survey are being turned

over to them. Some of the canvassers are making followup caUs. The unchurched are being encouraged to join Bible classes, which are being started in the local congregations. About one third of New Dim was canvassed before school began. The rest ottne town was finished shortly after school started. Originally about 55 students were involved. Now about 30 canvassers are participating in making witnessing calls. The core committee which was instrumental in starting the project is composed of Jim Barnes, Cheryl Stoltenberg, Tom Trl!PP, and Diane Wels.

Presents Concert On November 12at8 P.M. the DMLCConcert Band Ensemble made its first appearance of the 1971·72school year. The "Leaves Are Falling" concert, under the direction of Mr. Charles Luedtke, was held in the auditorium. Also appearing at the concert was the DMLC Symphonic Concert Band. This band, open to all students, is much larger than it was last year. Among the selections. which were played, the theme of the concert, a number entitled "Leaves Are Falling," was scheduled. This was inspired by President Kennedy's death. Other selections included "My Fair Lady;" "Patton," as arranged by DMLC's Linda Walling; "Nocturne;" "commando March; " and several more.

These lively and active congregation members provided room and board for the Collegians. One team, consisting of four members - Jan Breitenfield, Karen Kegner, Mary Neidfeldt, and Dale Schaeffer - traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana; and Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama, canvassing and teaching VBS for two weeks in each location.

Count Our Blessings

Humor Column BY uNnA BERGQUlft :-

The completion of our beautiful new library building gives us a special opportunity to thank and praise God for the great blessings given to us. However, this Thanksgiving let us look back with special attention, over the past few years at DMLC; we will find many more wonderful blessings right here on campus for which we can be filled with thanks and praise to God. The completion of the library marks the completion of a building era at DMLCbeginning in 1962with the new Music Center. Over the years, two new women's dormitories were built, a new auditorium, and a beautiful student union and gymnasium. For those of us who use these facilities, they should be a constant reminder of God's love and continuous care and blessings, but more often than not we take them for granted. Let us pray that we never forget that it is God who gives us these many blessing nor to joyously praise and thank Him this Thanksgiving for His wonderful love and guidance throughout our building project.

'Alas, Poor Soccer


"Soccer instead of football!" "Homecoming just isn't homecoming without football. Those are the cries that were uttered by many students when they first entered the life of DMLC, when they first discovered that the one sport they had always associated with high school and college didn't exist here. But as the weeks and years went by, as a student viewed more and more soccer games and hecame better acquainted with the sport, he got used to it. He would tell others that it "sort of grows on YOu." Then, suddenly, this student was faced with the prospect that within a year the fall sport would be changed from soccer to football. Then, suddenly, he was unsure whether he wanted this change to occur' he kind of liked soccer now. Why were they changing to football ~nyway? After all, soccer here was only six y~rs old. After all his complaints about soccer, this person nowrealized that he regretted seeing soccer end its brief life at DMLC. Despite his preference for soccer, however, the student resigned himself to the fact that football would be the sport at DMLC.After thinking about the matter, he knew that within a few years football would mean as much to the DMLCstudents as soccer does now. He sincerely hoped that the football team would have even more school support than the soccer team has had. Unfortunately, many students In years to come would nev~r realize that soccer had even existed on this campus. But he knew It would be a happy memory for him and many others who had enjoyed its excitement and different type of action.

Aeolians and Marluts Begin New Year There are two organizations on campus' that have very unusual names: the Aeoliansand the Marluts. These groups are women's and men's choirs, counterparts to one aother. The Aeollans derived' their name from the church mode. The almost one hundred women sing mainly secular ~u_sic. Advised by Professor Shilling, the women meet every Monday and Thursday from 6:10 to 6:50 with a purpose of providing a chance to "sing what you want to sing" and the added feature of fun. Joy Grobe, a senior, is the president this year. Cosecretaries are Louise Sponem and Bonnie Rude. JoAnn Kallies is the treasurer and Trudy Zibell. the librarian. The Codirectresses are Dorothea Siegler, a senior and Jan Breitenfield. a junior. The Aeollans' will be going Christmas caroling with the Marluts. This event is followed by a big party. InFebruary they have another concert, with Ii final appearance on Mother's Day. The Marluts, as described by one of the .members, are a bunch of cute guys. The name is a clipped form of .Martin Luther. The men also meet on Monday and Thursday, right after Chapel. The only officer as of yet is Dave Enter, the president. Steve Kehl, and Carl Nolte, both seniors, share the responsibility of directing. The Marluts join the Aeolians in their February concert with the Academy Band. They also are asked, at times, to sing for such organizations as the

Rotary Club and the Art Club In New Ulm. Right now the men. are working on "Old Man River," "Aura Lee,''''Drill, Ye Terriers, Drill" and "They Call the Wind Maria".

with the task of cataloguing the recordings which were formerly stored in the Music Center, so that a small problem exists of finding the recording wanted, but the recordings are still available. The recording collection includes many musical recordings. Synod filmstrips on stewardship and other topics are also found in the Media Center. Needed equipment, tape recorders, turntables, headphones, and projectors are provided. The room itself is furnished with desks and can be reserved for classes. The Listening and Viewing Room is smaller than the Media Center, but can be reserved by students for the same purposes as the Media Center. There are three other rooms on the lower floor that have special purposes. The Seminar Room can be reserved by professors for classes and material will be put into the room upon. the teacher's request. Students can reserve the Conference Room a day or two in advance for any meeting they may want to hold during library hours. The 'last room is the Typing Room. All the student needs. to do is. ask for the key and he has available to him two ¡:1ype'\'{rllers. Plans for more typewriters are being considered. Since ;:these facilities are available to the students upon request, we would hope the collegiates would learn to take advantage of them.


Upon entering the library, a look to the right the down stairway and lounge area.

In the past ten years, enrollments In the Synod's elementary schools increased eight per cent and high school enrollment 59 per cent despite a 17 per cent drop in the birthrate. Opening of five new high schools was chiefly responsible for the large enrollment growth on the secondary level. This fall, eight congregations within the Wisconsin Synod opened new schools located at Bellevue, Wash; Manitowac, Wis.; Mesa, Ariz.; Pompano Beach, Fla.; Balaton, Minn.; Tinley Park, Ill.; Spokane, Wash.; and Nodine, Minn.


New Library Has A Story Of Its Own The razing of the old Hillcrest Hall last fall marked the beginning of many apparent signs of the beautiful new library building we now have. This new library is a product of many years of generosity, careful planning, and hard work. The DMLClibrary as it stood in 1884 consisted of a few books on a shelf, totally German and mainly theological in nature. By

WELS Blessed With Growth Although much has been said about the decline of church school systems nationally, the Wisconsin Synod has been blessed' with an increasing number of facilities, teachers, and students.


Three or the new schools started immediately with full eiJ!htyear or nine-year programs. In 1970 the Synod opened 11 new school systems, including two a t mission congregations. Only three Synod grade schools were closed, all in southern Minnesota. They were at SI. James, Glencoe, and Janesville. Small enrollment was listed as the cause. One new high school was opened this year in the Kenosha, Wisconsin, area and a new one was started in Michigan last year. The Wisconsin Synod opera ted 244 schools through 1970 compared to 218 grade schools in 1960. During the same period enrollment increased from 24,082 to 26,070 with increases noted in total enrollment in the system in all but three years since 1955.

Sophs 'Welcome' F "I , am a lowly freshman" was the sign seen on the backs of many a freshman girl the week before homecoming. A beanie tied with ribbons, red fingernail polish and red lipstick completed the outfit of the "good" little freshman girl. Those who wouldn't cooperate with the rules found out soon enough that sophomores didn't fool around. One freshman girl got herself covered with shaving cream for trying to get back at one of the sophomores. Initiation started on Monday, the 18th,when the girls all were required to know the school song and the sophomore pledge and be prepared to recite them at anytime during the week. Any sophomore could ask any freshman to "button" immediately on request. If you don't know what that means, just ask a freshman. The sophomore girls gave the freshman girls (and the

matrons!) a taste of initiation Thursday night on first floor of Hillview. The freshmen were astudying snug in thetr rooms

with visions of trouble all in the air. The halls were very quiet, but not for too long, for up from the basement came the sophs for a riot! The doors were opened, shouting was heard,

DMLC's Lancer

DMLC observed its final soccer homecoming October 22 and 23, The Pep Club's expectations for the biggest and best homecoming yet were met as the Homecoming '71 events, centering on the theme of "Newspaper Comics in Action," progressed, The festivities got underway Friday, October 22, with a pepfest at 7:30, which was followed .by the traditional burning of the "L" in the football bowl. Saturday afternoon's parade, led by the DMLC Marching Band, was the beginning of a very spirited day. Included in the parade were the Luther Cadettes Drill Team, the

Perfect Day

cheerleaders, class floats, and decorated cars. Winner of the float contest was the Junior Class. The seniors followed the sophomores were third, and the freshmen came up with fourth place. Winners of this year's new addition to the parade, the car decorating contest, were Cathy Redmann and Ralph Koch, first place; Yvonne Nelson, second place; and Childrens Theater, third place. The highlight of the weekend was the Lancers' victory over the Comets of Concordia College, st. Paul. Lancer fans were elated with their team's 51 victory.

Homecoming '71 came to a perfect end with a victory banquet in the LMU Saturday evening at 6:30. A delicious dinner prepared by the food service was followed by a memorable program of entertainment, featuring Pastor Vern Voss of Jordan, Minnesota, as guest speaker. Steve Carlovsky was presented with this years Most Valuable Player Award. Highlight ofthe evening was the presentation of an award to Coach Dallman by his team and the cheerleaders. DMLC's last soccer homecoming is now a memorable event in the hearts of both young and old Lancers alike.

Burning of the 'L'

The weekend of Oct. 22-24, 1971 marked the 15th annual homecoming at Dr. Martin Luther College. The 15th homecoming! Can this be right? Yes, it can. Before 1956, homecoming was almost unknown to collegians on this hill. Then in 1956 the first homecoming was celebrated with a basketball game. The festivities opened with a bonfire near the tennis courts, after which the spectators proceeded indoors to witness a basketball game between the varsity and the alumni. Refreshments were served in the gym at Centennial following the game. During the next four years homecoming was similarly celebrated. In 1960a pep rally was added

the night before the game, making this a two day festival. Various skits were presented at this time. A second basketball game was introduced with the DMLC professors playing the alumni in the first game and the varsity meeting one of their opponents in the second. A banquet held in the dining hall rounded out the evening's entertainment. From 1960through 1964homecoming, usually held in January, signalled the start of the basketball season. October 16, 1965 marked DMLC's first soccer homecoming. Many changes were made at this time as homecoming began to resemble the celebration to which we are accustomed. Homecoming now

'.frosh, trembling witlt"fear. Ab, 'wt along came' the matron, much to our dismay; she said to

the girls, "get into your rooms and get in there to stay!" The boys initiated the freshman guys in military fashion. Each night at 9:30 they were called to arms, with broom in

10:00. The boys learned pretty fast with Jerry Duerr as general. Not only did the frosh have to march around campus with mops, but they had to sing choruses while they kept in step. It was reported that "on the average, they did a good job, in fact, excellent, except for one guy they called Gomer Pyle. He couldn't march because he had two left feet." The discipline in the freshman marching unit was kept strict, as Jack Fritzler may recall. When he stepped out of line, he was required to hug a tree for 15 minutes. Stan Aufterheide was named outstanding "volunteer" for the unit, even though he didn't always volunteer himself to do whatever General Duerr commanded The freshmen showed the student body their talents at marching a t the pep fest Friday night and again on the soccer field on Saturday.







Lancers Emerge Victorious On Saturday, October 23, the Lancer soccer team celebrated homecoming with a sparkling ~ 1 victory over the Comets of Concordia College. Earlier in the season, Concordia had defeated Luther by a score of 21, but this time the Lancers were not to be denied. Only minutes into the game, John Barenz swept in from his right wing position and pounded home the first goal of the game for the Lancers. Paul Hartwig kept the scoring momentum going with two goals, one on a fine unassisted drive.

,Junior Class

Midway through the half, Concordia got on the scoreboard, heading the ball in off a corner kick. Late in the period the Lancers scored twice more for a ~1 halftime lead. Forward Steve Carlovsky scored the fourth goal on a penalty kick, and reserve Joel Railling scored his first goal of the season in heavy traffic in front of the goal. The pace of the game slowed down considerably in the second half, with neither team being able to penetrate for a goal. The Lancers were knocking at the door throughout the period, but

A Memory 'was moved from January to the fall of the year. The first float ~,was presented by the Pep Club t' while all the cJasses worked on , ground displays. ' The first homecoming "parade, held in October 1967, ,.consisted of floats from all the ~ classes and several of the clubs. ~'This year the pep rally was held ~on Saturday night with the I"gameon Sunday. Following the ~game,a banquet was held at the SOrchidInnat Sleepy Eye for the hoJiegians, professors, and 'alumni. The next year, 1968, the collegemarching band led the parade for the first time. The pep mlly was moved back to day night, with the game log held on Saturday. Since

the Luther Memorial Union had been completed, the banquet was now held there. 1971will always be remembered as the last soccer homecoming, soon to be replaced by football. The festivities got underway Friday night with a pep rally, followed by the burning of the "L." The parade held downtown Saturday morning had the DMLC Drill Team participate in it for the first time. The weekend was climaxed by a win over Concordia Saturday afternoon and rounded out by a banquet held that evening in the LMU. What will future homecomings offer at DMLC? That question still remains to be answered.

Lancer's in Action

missed many fine opportunities to score, and settled for a ~1 homecoming victory. It was an especially satisfying win for Coach Gary Dallmann and his team since it was the last soccer homecoming at D.M.L.C. In other' homecoming activities, the Most Valuable Player Award for this season was presented to a very deserving senior forward, Steve Carlovsky. Both Carlovsky with nine goals, and Hartwig with eight, are within striking distance of the school record of eleven goals.

Soccer Team Rallies At End of Career After a slow first half season, a much improved Lancer soccer team ended its final soccer season winning three of its last five games. Coach Dallmann called this one of the most improved teams he had ever coached. In the last five games the Lancers beat St. Olaf, Pillsbury, and Concordia, with their only two defeats coming from an undefeated Bethany squad. In a Thursday afternoon game here on the hill, the Lancers trounced an always highly-rated St. Olaf team. All around good team hustle and some excellent passing brought a well~eserved victory to the Lancers. Early in the first half, a center from Lancer forward Paul Hartwig was pounded into the goal by senior forward Steve Carlovsky. St. Olaf retaliated with a goal to tie the score. Then a perfect comer kick from wing John Barenz

was headed into the St. Olaf goal by Hartwig. With only a few seconds left in the first half, Carlovsky scored his second goal of the game on a penalty kick. This put the Lancers in control at half time, 3-1. The fired-up Lancer squad struck early in' the second half. Once again the talented foot of Carlovsky scored for the Lancers on a center from sophomore wing, Mike Welch. Gooddefensive play by Luther's fullbacks and goalie, Jim Petermann, helped the Lancers blank the Olies the whole second half to make the final score 4-l. Coach Da11mann said that this was the best team effort of the season. With high hopes, the Lancers traveled to Mankato, on Saturday, October 9, only to be defeated by a tough Bethany team 3-1. Bethany controlled most of the first half, with good team

Football Team Trims' Waseca The Lancer football team ended its first season on a happy note with a 22-0 scrimmage "victory" at the University of Minnesota-Waseca, on Tuesday, October 26. The Lancers played no regular games in their scrimmage at Waseca was played under conditions similar to real "game" eondltions. The Lancers received the ball first and marched straight down the field for a touchdown. The drive highlighted the running of Jay Schwall and two key passes from Tom Hunter to Eric Troge. The touchdown came on a 26-yard scamper by Jay Schwall, with the run for the extra-point falling short. After the opening drive, the Lancer offense bogged down temporarily, and a strong defense had to take over the bulk of the load. The defense responded and held Waseca to a mere 6 yards in total offense for the first half. Halftime score: 6O. In the third period the Lancers again got their offerise moving and marched for their second score of the scrimmage,

this time on a 25 yard run by halfback Stan Aufderheide, who broke several tackles along the way. Quarterback Tom Hunter swept right end for the twopoint conversion and a 1~ Lancer lead. .Late in the game, Steve Hahnke broke off-tackle and ran 56 yards to the Waseca three yard line to set up the final score of the scrimmage. It came on a double reverse, with Hahnke on the scoring end. Hahnke also ran the two-point conversion. Coach Gorsline was extremely pleased with the fine Lancer defensive effort. Led by tackle, Fred Wangerin, with eight tackles, and guard John Cook with seven tackles, the Lancers allowed Waseca only 49 yards of total offense for the game, with 40 of those coming ontheir only pass completion on the final play of the scrimmage. The Lancers played no regular games in their first season, but participated in several scrimmages. The final scrimmage at Waseca was played under conditions similar to real "game" conditions.

hustle and good hall control. Led by two freshmen, Hyman Kornlstegn and Gilberto Armendariz, the Vikings scored three goals, to lead at half time 3-0. A very strong wind hampered both teams, ability to move the ball in the second half. Bethany still controlled the ball with the Lancers looking good at times but never being able to set up any offensive threat, until late (Continued on page 7)

Student Missionaries Tour Dixie (CoatIDuedfrom page 1) Mark Porinsky, Karen Black, and Mike Grochowski - did canvassing in Atlanta, Georgia; Maitland and Jacksonville, F1orida. A canvass-witness survey involves knocking on doors and asking the people a few questions. The question often arises, "But what does one say when the person answers the door? What kind of reactions do you get?" Here are a few of the eumples we found working in the south. Place: Atlauta, Georgia TIme: July, 1971, 10:00 a.m.8:00 p.m. Scene: A wealthy subdivision. The house is new and often has the Southern-type pillar arch. Beautiful trees bloom in the red clay soil. Itis very hot and hwnid. Action: Door opens and blast of cold air from the air conditioner knocks the wind out of the canvasaer.


CANVASSER: It means by Scripture alone. Everything our church believes and teaches is based on Scripture alone. Well, thank you for your time. Have a good day! Working in the South is truly an unusual .experience. One must often struggle hard to conform to the Southern customs. Besides the difference in dress, diet, dialect, and the strangeness of being called a "Yankee", there is. a notable difference in climste. The intense heat and hwnidity often result in the " daily monsoon hour" between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. This, however, does not stop our fearless canvass tenm, for with dampened spirits the team treks on. Place:




TIme: June, 1971,3:00 - 4:00 p.m. Scene: Wet streets of the wealthy suburbia Action: The doorbell has been rung several times, and the wet canvasser awaits the answer. After a short wait an unfriendiy voice growls from the wall. (Would you believe an intercom?)

CANVASSER: Good morning, I'm from Sola Scriptura Lutheran Church. We are taking a survey of this area to see if the people in this neighborhood are affiliated with a church. Does your family attend a church? .CANVASSEE: Why, yes. We go to the First Baptist church every Sunday. CANVASSER: I'm glad to hear that. I think that your church also teaches that Jesus Christ is our Savior from sin, and through Him we are saved. CANVASSEE: I believe in Jesus with all my heart. I know He'll take me to heaven. CANVASSER: I believe that, too. That's why we're here-to tell others of Jesus' great love, that they might know the way to heaven also. CANVASSEE: That sure is a different name you have for your church. What does it

CANVASSER: Hi, I'm from Crown of Life Lutheran Church, and we're currently canvassing this area looking for prospective church members. Do you presently have a church to attend? CANVASSEE: I'm not interested! CANVASSER:Oh, I'm afraid you misunderstood me, I merely would like to know if you have a church to attend. CANVASSEE: I told you, I'm not interested, and besides, I don't need the church or God. CANVASSER: I understand your feelings, but the fact remains that the Lord is interested in you. He loves you so

much that He was willing to send His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you and your sins. Our church is also interested in your spiritual welfare, and we will always give you a friendly welcome. Please think about what I've said, and pray that the Lord will move you to open your heart to Him. Thank you for your time. Trail-blazing the pathways of mission work is not by any means an easy job. But the Lord provides a relief for the canvasser's frustrations by causing unique incidents everytime the canvasser goes out, Place: Jacksonville, F10rlda or Birmingham, Alabama TIme: July, 1971 Scene: An upper-class neighborhood with ranch-style homes. The yard is surrounded by white picket fences, and surrounding the pool in the back yard is a profusion of palm trees and other exotic plants. Action: The canvasaer walks up to the gate and sees a "Beware of Dog" sign; the gate is open so he bravely enters. A huge German Shepherd chained to the back door eyes the canvasser

warily. The door bell is rung and sounds forth all kinda of racket which results in a cacophony of dogs barking and growling in every pitch imaginable. A chihauhau barks from the window while a terrier scolds from the porch. (Philippians 3:2Beware of Dogs-runs through the canvasser's mind.) The canvasser determinedly punches the doorbell again, only to hear the "harmonious" chorus again. But the canvasaer tries one last time, this time he finds himself fleeing for the gate, for the German Shepherd has worked himself loose. As the canvasser checks "Nobody home" on his canvass sheet, he shakily walks on to the next home where a Great Dane awaits his arrival. We know that the Lord wants all men to be saved, and knowing this simple truth prompts us Christians to carry this command out, We also !mow that in doing the Lord's

work, our greatest reward lies .inthe fact that the Lord is using us to do His work. . However, there are many other rewards, as those of us who worked in organized mission projects found out. Christian fellowship, sharing and working together with these small mission congregations, and lasting friendships with team-mates as well as members of these congregations are just a few of the outstanding rewards. "Glamour Tour Summer 71" sparks memories of peoplethose we lived with, worked with, and talked with, even if for only a few moments. Paul sums up our feelings perfectly in his letter to Philippians: 'I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."

the summer seeking and processing applicantsalthough none have yet been accepted-and setting the wheels in motion for the UWW to go into operation for the first time this fall. 'llIere are two main criteria for acceptance into UWW: an applicant must have a clear idea of what his educational goals are, and there must be no other educational channels which can help him reach his goals. ''Our orientation toward the self-directed person who has clearly articulated educational objectives will likely disqualify most undergraduates," said Johnson, "and keep this program out of the business of serving 18-to-22-year-olds. Besides serving primarily an atypical age group, the UWW abandons most other traditional concepts of a college education. It will not use the standard campus and classroom and circumscribed academic community, nor credits and grades as a measure of education. "We're getting away from the concept of education happening at a place where you go to learn. Education is something students do where they are," said Johnson. There will be no fixed curriculum and no uniform time schedule. Instead, a UWW student might take a full year to earn a quarter's worth of credits. "There will not be the hard and fast beginning points and ending points most younger students experience," Johnson said. "The emphasis here is on education as an on-going process which never ends." With plans to rely on the telephone, television, casaette tapes, films and correspondence study, a UWW student could receive a college education without ever coming onto the campus. "However, the first year I suspect we'll all do a lot of letter writing," Johnson said.

Carnival S.p· arks WIll· . Toboggan races? Drill team ice show? A "gravy train" carved in 1I1esnow? Beards? Queen? Broom hockey games? What's it all about? .. Snow Carnival! Yes, snow .carnival, this year with the theme "Advertisement Avalanche," sparked up a lot of lively enthusiasm on campus the week of February 22-26. Earlier in the month, nomination and announcement of seven queen candidates initiated interest. And why all the hairy men all of a sudden this time of year? This was also in preparation for a contest, the winner to be announced during snow carnival week. Many committees of. people were involved in organizing a week of entertainment for students. The annual snow carnival had something for everyone. One could participate as well as be an onlooker. Everyone could compete in the games, races, skits, and building sculptures. And all could be spectators to the many hours of hard work put in when it came to the queen competition, the drill team's ice show, "The Kids" entertainment, and that unforgettable movie, "The .Mad Woman of Cllaillot." Toboggans and Skates The first" activities· of snow carnival were on Tuesday night, Feb. 22. Fourteen four-member teama and. seventeen two· member teams assembled their speed-demon toboggans and raced down Hermann Hill. Each team was given two trials to beat the fastest clocked time.

If one was standing at the top of the hill, he heard the loud, shrill whistle to clear the slope below. Following a drop of the hat and somebody's foot getting out of the way, the toboggan and its team was on its way down. Only occasionally was there. a wipeout at the bottom. Coming out on top in the winner's circle: Carl Hochmuth and Ron Wells on the two-man team, while Phil Potratz, Jim Buege, Ernie Knobloch, and Kurt Troge made up the fearsome foursome. After this excitement on top of Hermann Hill came the drill team doing its thing on the ice below the hill. Under the direction of Sharon Hamula, the girls braved the cold and skated the routines to two pop songs. Unfortunately, a knee knjury prevented Sharon, formerly a skater with the "Ice Follies," from performing her scheduled routine. This part of snow carnival added a new dimension to the entertainment. Then came free skating, and at 10:00 p.m. the evening ended with some good, warming hot chocolate in tile gym. Queens Paula Wilbrecht emcee'd the entertainment on Thur sday night. This was the evening most waited for by the queen candidates. "We were nervous, but we were excited." This was the night of queen competition and class skits. The candidates did not feel as if it were competition, but rather a working together and really a getting to know each other better. The student body got to know the seven girls better, too.





During convocation the weeK before they heard all about the candidates' childhoods, like how Sarah Zell used to ride

around town on her "red bomber," Trudy Zibell was

Faculty Gesture Pleases Students


Organ Skill

Lately there has been something different in our chapel services in the morning. Now when we're sitting in the chapel, the section where the faculty sits looks pretty bare. Could it be that the faculty is staying away from chapel? Certainly not! The faculty is still coming to chapel, but they're not sitting in the same places. Everywhere you look you see a professor. If you are less observant, while you are singing you may hear a deep bass voice behind you, and will sneak a peek to find another professor has taken a seat right behind you. Nowthis is no big thing. The faculty has the right to sit anywhere they like, but there seems to have been some unspoken agreement that they sit together in one corner. There are many students that are pleased to see the initiative taken by the professors. Maybe it's some kind of gesture or way of showing that they are with us, not above us. Maybe It's just a way of getting out of a rut. Whatever the reason, the faculty should be told ... we like It!

A Modern Parable A man was struck down on the streets of New Ulm, Minnesota, by thieves, was beaten up, robbed and left for dead. A minister came along, but since the man did not belong to his church, he walked carefully aroundhlmandwenthlsway.A lawyer saw the man lying in the road, but didn't want to get involved, and he crossed the street so that he would not pass too close to the man. A ChrIstian came along and took pity on the man. He dressed his wounds and took him to a motel where he paid In advance for a night's lodging. He Instructed the motel keeper

fast, and supply him with anything he needed so that he could get home again. For these services he paid in advance. THE MORAL OF THE STORY: Because he was so popular, the minister was elected bishop the next year. The lawyer was so astute in his jrofesslon that he was elected to the Supreme Court. The OtrIstian was dragged into court and sued on a charge of jractlcing medicine without a license. He is serving from one to five years in the state prison.

Carnival Activities (Continued from page 1) a .stuck-up-in-the-trees-nature girl, and- KiKi -Johnson slept with a bird! That Thursday night each girl did a routine of her talent while students and judges rated her in talent, poise, personality, and overall presentation. Extemporaneous Questions Maybe the funniest part of the evening came when the extemporaneous question was asked. Sandy Boettcher promised Prof. Morton Schroeder that she would get her term paper in "real soon;" after nine weeks she was still unprepared. KiKi Johnson got herself into a sticky situation wben she was caught with a peanut" butter and jelly sandwich oozing out her sleeve while shaking hands with THE head of THE CAFETERIA himself, Mr. Tague. Debbie Knief found herself in an embarrassing, slippery situation when she slipped and fell on the ice directly in the path of Professor Hartwig. Marsha Lange felt like watering the bushes below her window by dropping water balloons. Little did she know that Tutor Zimmermann and his girl were her targets. When Zimmermann came on stage the students found out who his "girl" was. AHA!

Tonight, Friday, March 17, the Symphonic Concert Band and the Concert Band Ensemble will be performing at 8:00 P.M. 10 the chapel auditorium. The Symphonic Concert Band has prepared for weeks to play selections from "West Side Story" by Leonard Bernstein and an original march by a DMLC Senior, Martha Ratz. The band's most interesting works will be selections from Moussorgsky's famous "Pictures at an Exhibition." These musical pieces, originally written for piano and later for orchestra and band, were composed after Moussorgsky had attended a posthumous art exhibit of his friend Victor

Cindy Wynkoophad to explain to Dean Huebner her reason for missing a day's classes. Somehow Watertown happened to be the place Cindy fell sick and couldn't continue her trip to New Ulm. What's Watertown got that New IDm hasn't, Cindy? Sarah Zell,instead of going on tour with the College Choir, wanted to "join a different group." She had to face Prof. Zahn to explain her upcoming plans for marriage as the reason that she couldn't go with the choir at Easter. Trudy Zibell had to confront Prof. Schulz after applying "contour plowing" to his yard. She thought it was a good idea; he didn't. Competition! The skits also provided some goodlaughs. The freshman look like an up-and-coming class, winning in this competition. Each class skit, hilariously performed, brought out some of the grievances about life on campus. Class participation, originality, unity, and relation to the overall theme all counted on the judges' tally. The junior varsity basketball team played the intramural allstars in the game of the year Friday night. Captain Jig Hahnke had Tim Bilitz Chuck Luehring, Phil Jurgensen, and Scott Lengling on his top five all-star list. After the game,

Hartmann. Dan Schmal, with photographs of paintings and sketches relating to the movements, made slides that will be shown during the performance. The "William Byrd Suite" in six movements is first on the Concert Band Ensemble's program, followed by another original piece called "Little Green Leaves" by our own' , Linda Walling. A rather unusual piece called "Star-gazing" will also be performed. This number is done with band and pre-recorded sounds and consists of three one-minute movements. The CBE's final number will be "Lincoln Portralt," narrated by Professor Martin Schroeder.


Keith Lauber announced the queen and her court to the audience. Trudy Zibell was chosen queen and Sarah Zell and Marsha Lange were first and second runners-up, respectively. Broom hockey was a sport suddenly popular on the campus. Saturday afternoon eight teams met and battled each other on the ice rink below the hill at 1:00 p.m. Champions of the boys' team was Terry Watts' team, while Nona Weyer and Kathy Schuetze's team championed in the girls' depariment. The classes hurriedly threw the last snow balls on their sculptures Saturday morning to be ready at 10:00 am. for the judges, The freshmen entered a covered wagon followed by a large beagle representing the "gravy train" theme. The sophomores advertised the "Try it; you'll like it" line, with the DMLC campus sculptured on a huge hill. The juniors are of the Pepsi generation, and they "cooked" a big hamburger and French fries, alongside the Pepsi bottle. The seniors sculptured an octopus, using the theme, "underarm expert." Entertainment Night Queen coronation took place Saturday night. John Bauer introduced all the girls and their escorts to start off the entertalnment. Trudy was given the honor of announcing the winners of all .the toboggan, broom hockey, and beardgrowing contests. Jim Carolfi won the beard-growing contest. Trudy also announced the winners of the class competition for skits and sculptures. Freshmen won the skit competition, sophomores were second, seniors third, and juniors fourth. Winners of the snow sculpture in order: freshmen, seniors, sophomores, and juniors. Freshmen took first in the "overall" class, second came the seniors, third the sophomores, and juniors were fourth runners-up again. Entertaining that night were "The Kids," Paul Jacobs, and Keith Lauber. The evening concluded with "The Kids" Paul Jacobs and finally the 'audience, all jdining in on the song "Friends With You." Thus ended a week of fun and entertainment for snow carnival 1972.



This shell is used very frequently as a symbol for Holy Baptism. Three drops of water indicate baptism, "In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost." The colors of the shield are a heavenly blue; the shell and the drops are gold. With the Lenten season upon us, we should be reminded of its precious meaning to us as children of God. It is recorded for us in Romans 6:3 : "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?" As Christ was ralsed from lite dead, we, by being buried with Christ by baptism, will also find a new and glorious life in eternal happiness and blessedness. May the symbol of baptism remind you of the joy this Lenten season brings to your heart.

DMLC I!l!ofessor Accepts Call" When school starts agaln next fall, the English department will be missing one of its members: Professor Borgwardt. He has accepted a call to 'Fox Valley Lutheran High School at Appleton, Wisconsin. His call is a combination teacher-guidance one. He will be teaching sophomore religion and also have responsibility with the guidance department. Professor Borgwardt says it "will be different in terms of subject matter." While here, he taught classes mainly in American literature. Some of these include American literature, Shakespeare, composition, and speech.

Before coming to the DMLC campus eight years ago, Professor Borgwardt was a pastor at Frankenmuth, Michigan, During his eight years in New Ulm, Professor. Borgwardt has seen a rapidly increasing enrollment and a literal doubling of physical buildings.

Among the many changes he 'has seen here, the most significant is probably the introduction of the new curriculum which has been in effect for three years now. To Prof. Borgwardt we bid a fond farewell for his humorous, enlightening lectures.

This year there were twelve teams involved, ranging from St. Martin's "Spartans" all the way from SouthDakota to New Ulm's own St. Paul's "Raiders." Trophies were awarded to the four top teams and the fifth trophy went to the winner of the

The Lancers fell behind by five points early in the half, but began to come back with a deliberate offense that produced some good shots underneath. Midway through the period the Lancers took the lead and pulled away the rest of the way. In the second half, Lancer Jack Fritzler did an outstanding job of dominating the boards. The win brought the Lancers' record to 6-14 overall, and 2-4 in the conference. Lancers vs. JFK On the Monday before the MRAC Tournaments the Lancers lost at home to a very talented John F. Kennedy College team, 59-55.JFK came out in a very tight zone defense early in the game and hampered the Lancers ability to work the ball inside. In the first half, good outside shooting by Reg Riesop and Paul Hartwig put the Lancers ahead. But a steady game by JFK throughout the second period and a cooling down of the Lancers shooting gave JFK the victory. The Lancers hosted the Minnesota River Athletic Conference Tournament on February 18 and 19. The Lancers lost their tournament opener to a charged-up Pillsbury Comet team by a score of 75-63. The game was much closer than the score indicated, with tlie' 'Comets leading only 35-32at halftime. The Lancers ran into a cold streak and scored only seven points in the first ten minutes of the second half to fall behind by ten points. At this point the Lancers began to press in an attempt to get back into the game. In the process, three starters were lost to fouls and the Lancers were out of the game and into the consolation bracket. After their first round loss,

St. Paul Bibles' defense in the final tournament game, Senior Reg Riesop gathered points toward the Lancer victory. the Lancers stormed back to smash St. Paul Bible College 9470in the battle for third place. The Lancers closed their season with one of their fmest overall performances. The first half was extremely close with both teams shooting well from the field. Score at halftime was 3534in favor of the' Lancers. The second half was all Lancers as they came out fastbreaking for the first time in several weeks. The Lancers hit 20out of 25 shots inside the lane and finished the half shooting 65 .per cent from the field. The fine balanced scoring was led by Jack Fritzler, a surprise starter who was not expected to play because of a knee injury. He finished with 19points. The win set the Lancers' fmal record at 7-16for the season.

Lancerettes Finish Second In State .Tournaments The 1972 Lancerettes basketball season came to an end in a blaze of glory with a string of tournament victories and defeat in the championship game against Mankato State College in the first annual Minnesota State Women's Basketball Tournament hosted by DMLC March 9 and 10. The string of tournament victories began at the Southwest State College Invitational Basketball Tournament which the Lancerettes won for the second straight year. This was a six team tournament. In the semifinals, DMLC defeated Minnesota-Morris 3&-24. Barb Leopold topped the scoring with 13points and Kathy Deines had 9 points for Luther. Gayle Gilmore led with 7 rebounds. In the championship game DMLCdefeated the host Southwest by a score of 34-24.In this game, Kathy Deines had 8 points, Barb Leopold 6, Carol Bauer 6, and Gloria Lohmi1ler 6. Claire Scboessow led the team with 14 rebounds and Gayle Gilmore had 13rebounds. The next step toward the state tournament was the .Lancerettes victory in the Southern Regional Women's College Basketball Tournament which was held at Mankato State on March 3 and 4. In the first game_ of the tournament, DMLC defeated Carleton ~. Claire Scboes8ow led the scoring for DMLCwith 21points and Gayle Gilmore added 12 points. These two also led in rebounds, Gayle had ninjl;.r~ !P.CL~e_ had eigM. .. ' , .., . Their· second game was against Winona State. The Lancerettes won by a score of 52-25.Gloria. LohmiIler led the scoring' with 17 points for DMLC. Kathy Deines had nine points and Barb LA!opoldand Gayle Gilmore each had eight points. Gloria Lohmiller also led in the rebounding department with 11 rebounds and Gayle Gilmore had 7.

DMLC beat the host team in the finals 51-45.It was a reverse of a regular season defeat suffered by DMLCat the hands of the MSC Indians. In this game Gloria Lohmiller led DMLC scorers with 19 points, Barb Leopold had 10, Claire Schoessow had 9, Gayle Gilmore had 7, and Carol Bauer had 6. There were no substitutions for DMLC. Claire Schoessow and Gloria Lohmiller led with rebounds with 12 and 10 respectively. The height of the basketball season. was the first Women's State Basketball Championship Tournament that started with the regionals at MSCand ended at DMLC this past Thursday and Friday nights. In Thursday night's first game, Mankato State edged the University of Minnesota-Duluth by 45-43. Duluth was cold throughout the first three quarters and showed the effects of the long ride to New U1m. They came to life in the final quarter and tied the score at 43 all. An MSC basket with 15 seconds left was the deciding factor. In the second game, the Lancerettes squeaked by the University of Minnesots 52-51. One of the more unusual aspects in the game was a dispute in which· a technical foul was ca1Ied on DMLC because a substitute entered the game without being waved onto the court by the officials. After this problem was worked out, Minnesota made three of four U:eI1 JbrCL~ wlP.~ )Illlde ,the fina1 score- what it was, but there were still 17seconds to go. With 13seconds showing on the clock the U got the ball back and had .a chance to win. A shot at the buzzer was off the rim and DMLC had the victory.

DMLC Skiers Think Snow

The newly organized DMLC Ski Club has gotten off on the right ski this year. The members attended the first ski activity for the year on Friday evening, March 3. For the paltry sum of $7.75,participants rented skis, boots, and poles. The fee also included a tow ticket. About 60college students and professors attended the party which took place at Ski Haven in Mankato. Afterwards a party was held in the lodge. A lot of those who went had never skied before, and they found out how easy it was. Jim Anderson, operator of Ski Haven, was kind enough to come to DMLCt:le week before the activity and give beginners some tips on skiing. He displayed the various types of ski equipment, demonstrated

turns, and gave some rules that

every skier should know. For example, to beware of people darting in front of one while he is traveling down a hill at 90 mph, not to lose one's head by wearing long scarves that hang out. They have a tendency to get tangled up in tow ropes. Jlm Anderson pointed out that it is difficult to learn how to ski without falling. He said that at times·it is-even: refreshing to fall. Jim showed a movie, "Turned on Stein," about a former Olympic skier, Stein Erikson. Stein demonstrated forms, spoke about his ski school, and did a variety of stunts. The scenery was breath-taking and the movie very inspiring. Ski Club welcomes new members. ~t is open to all DMLC students; one doesn't have to know how to ski to join.

DramaCluh Presents Brigadoon

DURING THE INITIAL meeting of DMLC's newest discussion group, faculty and students discussed campus fellowship on the basis of Scriptures, in small buzz groups.

Professor Brick Recruits Future Church Workers Do you remember back in high school or even grade school when for an hour classes were suspended and a man came .and talked to you about Dr. Martin Luther College? That man was in all probability" Professor Delmar Brick, who for the last ten years has been recruiting students for the teaching ministry all over the United States. From Alaska to Texas and all across the" country, Professor Brick visits the grade schools, high schocls and churches of our Synod to tell the story of DMLC. His presentations usually begin with the background of DMLC,the history and purpose of the school; he shows slides of the campus and student life, and through the entire talk stresses the motivation In teaching for Christ. A question and answer session usually follows the slides. Financing, credit transfer, curriculum, and scholarships are explained and discussed in this informal period. Professor Brick sometimes takes several students along on his recruitment tours. These

students talk about the campus and activities, and often find that because of their age they can better bridge the "generation gap." These repr~ntatives get the point across that students going to DMLC aren't a chosen, select, unreachable few, but they are people, just like anyone else, but who have decided to teach God's lambs. Professor Brick stated that he "really enjoys his assignment as recruiter, especially when he takes along students from the campus." He isn't worried that the recent trend towards a teacher surplus will cut out his job. He feels that the WELS has a long way to go before there Is a surplus of teachers, and new schools and new mission fields are opening up every year. This teacher surplus has been a cause of concern for many school students thinking of their future as teachers, but Professor Brick believes tha t If men and women are willing to dedicate their lives to the teaching ministry, God will surely provide a place for them. The ohject of the tours and

lectures is to "plant the seeds in the minds of the children and start them thinking seriously about DMLC and teaching." He also does recruiting for Martin Luther Academy in areas where there is no Lutheran high school and parents wish to give their children Christian secondary educations. Professor Brick doesn't employ hard sell tactics for his recruitments. He doesn't paint a rosy picture of DMLC, but gives the facts fairly, and tries to dispel any false opinions and notions people might have of the school. He feels that no one should be pressured into becoming a teacher, but he encourages those with the desire and ability to think about it seriously. Professor Brick spent the first semester of this year on tours in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan. He visited all the grade schools in Milwaukee and every area Lutheran and Synod high school. This semester he is teaching several courses; therefore his recruitment tours will be limited mainly to the weekends.

Commercialism or Christ? What a happy day Easter Is! We meet all the relatives we haven't seen for months or maybe years, a baby or two that some have never seen; all are gathered in one place. There is the excitement of finding Easter baskets, smiles on children's chocolaty faces, of eating jellybeans, and overeating, in general. These are some of the joys of Easter. . Yet in the background there lies the memory of an early morning church service, the joy of seeing the white on the altar replacing the recent purple and black, the organist playing full volume and the congregation fervently singing "I Know that My Redeemer Lives." Isn't that what Easter Is really all about? Why can't that message permeate the whole day? Yet how often don't colored eggs and chocolate bunnies take precedence over ChrIst's resurrection? The same commercialism Is beginning to govern Easter that rules during the ChrIstmas season. Don't we often spend more time buying Christmas presents or Easter candy than we do contemplating the real meaning of the holiday for which we are preparing? This editorial may seem outdated this late after Easter, but the issue is still pertinent. We can't change the world overnight, but we can, at least within our own families, make the holidays truly days to celebrate what they were meant to celebrate. Christ Is our ruler. His birth, death, and resurrection are the most important things that have happened in this world Can we let Santa Claus and the Easter bunny take their place?

A valuable educational aid has been introduced this semester in the form of an organized program of demonstration lessons. The lessons are carried out down at st. Paul's at the thlrd through sixth grade levels. Currently, the juniors are most involved in the program with the Teaching Reading, Teaching Religion, and Teaching Music in the

Smile Exercises By LInda Bergquist SPRING FEVER A curious malady known as spring fever Is being contracted by an ever-growing number of Luther students. Its symptoms are attacks of claustrophobia, which manifest themselves in students begging teachers to hold classes outside and in an insane desire to open windows; glazed eyes which seem to be able to look only out of windows; a sudden and complete loss of ambition; and an obsession of keeping accurate record of the number of school days remaining . Though the faculty has valiantly fought this dread disease, a permanent cure Is yet to be found. There Is no definite plan of treatment; however, It has been :discovered that a summer vacation will bring some relief until next spring.

HOW TO GET RID OF mCCOUGHS (HICCUPS) 1. Put your head under your arm, hold a glass of water against the back of your neck, and count to five hundred by fives without taking a breath. 2. Bend your body backwarda until it touches the floor and whistle in reverse. 3. Place your head in a pail of water and inhale twelve times. 4. Drink a glass of milk from the right hand with the right arm around the neck until the milk enters the mouth from the left side. 5. Hop, with feet together, up and down a flight of stairs ten times, screaming loudly at each hop. 6. Roll down a long, inclined lawn, snatching a mouthful of grass up each time the face is downward. 7. If you don't get rid of your hiccups by usingany of these methods, the resulting tom ligaments, near drowning, lockjaw and arsenic poisoning will take your mind off the offending hiccups. Good luck! (adapted from Robert Benchley)

Elementary School courses. Seniors involved in Teaching Mathematics will also be able to see a lesson taught at St. Paul's. The demonstration Is usually set up to show a certain type of lesson. For Teaching Reading, Professor Wessel demonstrates the first day of a reading lesson plan and the lesson progression. Professor Meyer shows how to teach a rote song to children and preserits techniques to keep them interested. Professor Sievert will demonstrate a Bible story, a devotion, or a hymn lesson. Professor Paulsen'S group will be able to see a math lesson in action. The demonstrations take place in the classroom or in the special lecture room which was designed for this purpose, These lessons provide the future teacher with greater insight into effective procedures.

Club's Aim Is Science The campus has recently acquired a new organization. The group's proposed name is Luther Association for Science and Experimental Research (LASER). The purposes of the science club are to enjoy science in a Christian perspective and to provide help in future teaching. The present scbool year's meetings are used only for organizing the club. Next year the organization will begin functioning. Among the plans are to bring guest lecturers to campus, to be a service to the school, to encourage an avid interest in science, and to do what the members suggest as to activities and discussions. The group is advised by Professor Carmichael and under the present leadership of freshman Ema Miller .. '

DMLC Art, Photo Fair Reveals Students' Creative Talents "Beautiful. . .Fantastic. . .1 can't believe how talented some people are! " These were just a few of the conunents that were heard when people viewed the exhibits during the Student Art Fair held April 14-16 in the DMLC library. The fair, held yearly, had an added attraction this time; a photography section gave a new dimension. Those entering photos showed real variety and imagination in their pictures. The photographs were hwnorous or touching, showing people at work and play, buildings and landscapes. Dan Schmal, a professional photographer and college junior, had a display featuring various lighting and exposure techniques. Both conventional and the more unusual art forms were well-represented in the rest of the fair, everything from oil paintings to decoupage and hand-painted pistachio and walnut shells were present.

MEMBERSOF THE CASTof the Children's Theater production "Wizard of Oz" have been practicing faithfully to prepare for their many performances.

'Wizard of Oz' Produces Fun, Problems for Cast By a Member of¡tbe Cast "Aunt Em! Uncle Henry! Where are you?" Poor Dorothy's house has blown away and now she is stranded in the land of Oz. Will she find her way back to Kansas? Will the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Lion be granted their requests? These questions and many more will be answered for you on the evening of May 6, when "The Wizard of Oz" Is presented to the college by Children's Theater. Where will you find a more sweet and innocent girl than Diane Nast to play Dorothy? How about a clumsy and brainless Scarecrow? Linda Bergquist fits the part and also trips over her own feet very nicely. Tall and lanky Jack Fritzler, the Tin Woodman, walks with a stiff gait, making him perfect for his part. But where will they ever find enough aluminwn foil to cover all of his body? The cowardly Lion, fierce and terrible Linda Dew, roars at everyone. But she is more of a "fraidy cat" than a cowardly

lion. The wizard, Max Schram, is a great and majestic man, but we never see Verymuch of him; He does most of his acting off stage. The poppy flowers do a deadly dance,' which' is not really that deadly because most of the time they are out of step. The Wizard of 01 contains a great deal of humor. Unfortunately a lot of It is hidden, but it is there. The humor is mostly for youngsters, but collegiates will enjoy It also. Small problems have arisen in the area of costumes for the actors. How do you make a strong lion's tail that will hold up under constant chewing? How about a dog for Dorothy that will bark when you want It to? How do you make a witch

There are qulte a few tongue twisters that must be untwisted. "major problem is learning the lines. But the cast has pulled through with a great rwmber of ad lIbbers. SummIng the whole play up, although it may not win any academy awards, It will probably draw an enormous crowd at DMLC. The Wizard of 01 has always been a favorite story among young children and is apparently now also a favorite among the colleglates. The directors are doing a very good job.

Recital Presents Varied Selections The faculty and students of Dr. Martin Luther College presented their annual chamber recital at 8:00 P.M. on Thursday, April 13, in the DMLC chapel-auditoriwn. The recital, organized by Prof. Otto H. Schenk, presented music from the classical era to the modern music of today which is being written for small chamber groups.

The Higb1ands ~ Scotland, complete with lads, lasaes, vanishing cities, love, and miracles, came alive on the DMLC stage the weekend of April 21-23, when BrlgadooD was presented by the Drama Oub. Brlgadoon, set In the.Scotland of the eighteenth century, posed a perplexing problem indeed for Tommy and Jeff (Jim Buege and Pete Bauer) when they happened upon the town on Fair day. SInce Jeff and Tommy were from twentieth century America, they and the townsfolk of Brlgadoon found each other egually amusing. Fiona 'MacLaren (Sarah Zell) and Meg Brockie (Mary Dendrlno) were Introduced and the plot began to thicken. Tommy and Fiona discovered a natural attraction fll' each other and Meg-deCided Jeff was the lad for her. The miracle of Brlgadoon was explained to Tommy and Jeff by Mr. Lundy (John Cook), the schoolmaster, who turned out to be a very convincing old man with a Scottish brogue thick enough to cut. He ended his story of the town's disappearance ,with this philosophical comment: "I guess there's a lot of folks out ther sho'd like a Brlgadoon." Charlie Dalrymple (Barry Washburn) and Jean MacLaren (MaxIne Uhlenbrauck) were to be wed In'the evening, and Jeff and Tommy decided to stay for ~ a;remony, Hlirry Beaton (Ed Lehmann) broke in on the festivities and began a savage sword dance that ended In a knife fight with Charlie over



Harry, with nothing left to live for, declared, "I'm leaving Brlgadoon, 'tis the end of us all, the miracle's over!" and ran off into the audience, leaving behind the very frightened townsfolk and some rather startled people In the audience,

too. Harry was stopped, but In the process was accidentally killed by Jeff. The festivities' of the wedding went on, but suddenly the laughter was turned to tears as Archie Beaton (Ron Glock) carried his dead son Harry through the happy scene. Tommy and Fiona discovered that they were In love, yet at the last moment Tommy decided that he was not sure enough of his feelings to stay on In Brlgadoon, and he left Fiona with a song, a kiss, and a tear. Once back In New York, he found he "canna get over it" and marry his fiance Jane (Vonnie Nelson). Little phrases and snatches of conversations carried him back to Brlgadoon and brought back memories of Fiona and his day there. He decided he had to return to Scotland and see for himself If it was all a dream or not. The final scene was very touching and yet very funny too. Jeff was hilariously drunk while Tommy was welcomed back to Brlgadoon by Mr. Lundy and tenderly reunited with Fiona. Under the direction of Debbie Scheurell, the DMLC .production of Brlgadoon was, to say the least, a success. Full houses greeted the performers each night of the musical, and it seemed as If each time the audience was the best ever. From,cast, c~, and orchestra

comments, those Involved with d i just BrigadoOD enj aye t as much as the audience did. One orchestra member said, "I've heard all these lines so often 1 know them by heart, and yet each performance is like hearing and seeing it all for the very first time." In some ways each night was unique. Frldsy, Jane (Vonnie Nelson) slapped Tommy when he called off the wedding, the second night she -really "belted" him, and the third time she threw her drink at him. John Cook as Mr. Lundy also threw In his own ad libblng when on Sunday night In the

middle of the fast-movina chase •-.., scene he hobbled slowly across the stage looking for Harry Beaton. And now it's all over. The costumes and make up are done with, the stage crew has dismantled the props, the orchestra ''pit'' Is gone, and the actors 'have shaved their beards, but the memories of Brlgadoon will last for a long, long time. One person put It this way, "It was exhausting, diacouraglng and frustrating; 1 haven't studied In weeks, but yet 1 wouldn't have missed being In BrigadooDfor anything In the world."

Professor Reuter for the 400th AnniverlllU'Yof the Reformatloo and performed for the first time by the College Choir In June, 1917. At the time, it was accompanied by Arthur Ehlke of MIlwaukee, and was so well done and greatly appreciated that It received a standing ovation. Also sung. were three children's selections taken from Sing -Mit, a volume of chlldren's songs; the' "MInnesota Leaguer's Song," text by Professor Sitz and music by Professor Reuter; and "KornblwneundElchenlaub" sung by a male chorus, which was accompanied by the band.

Oh! my aching back! Blisters, dirt, a picnic supper, and the goodfeelings associated with spring. Arbor Day Is over for another year, and the campus really looks nice. It would seem to go well with the new Center Street hill and Summit DrIve, except for the corner on our campus that lies at Summit and Center. A!l we walk up the sidewalk leading up to the steps along SummIt and look down to the street below, the hillside looks very poor because It Is without any grass. Farther up the walk, the hillside Is simply cut out and left bare and jagged. The question Is can't we find some money 01' time now that the road construction 'Is completed to beautify this comer of our campus? This area may be more difficult to control because of the incline and the trees, but If someone were given responsibility for maintaining It, this mlght help enhance the appearance of the whole campus. A!l visitors and friends come up to OMLC this comer Is one of the first things they see! A little grass on the hillside and a retaining wall beneath the trees would clean It up and add much to Its looks.

Junto Club Sponsors Mock Primary Election On Tuesday, April 11, the student body expressed their preferences In the OMLC Spring PrImary PresIdential Election.

They discussed the similarity between the OMLC Primary and the Wisconsin Primary, which was held exactly one week earlier. In an attempt toezplatn the popularity of Senator McGovern, several Junto members felt that he Is stili associated with the peace effort, which seemlngly draws the youth to his camp. The group also felt that George Wallace is popular because of the way" he knocks the 'establishment' and his capacity for telling It like It

Reuter . â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ (ConUnued from page 1)

COLLEGE CHOIR MEMBERS enjoy their brief stop at the domes of Mitchell Park Conservatory in Milwaukee, one of the many places they visited on their Easter concert tour throughout the Midwest.

Other features which added to the program were nine organ selections, which served as a sampling of his organ compositions, and a narration and slide lX'esentation of Professor Reuter's life. Points of interest concerning his life are that he was born in 1863 in Saxony, Germany. Years later he was appointed to the respected position of Cantor at Lichtenstein-Callnberg. Professor Reuter served there for ten years. Then, in 1904,he resigned from this position because of certain objections he had taken to the state church policies. He moved to Canada in 1905, Chicago in 1907,and in 1908,on April 3, he was Installed as a professor of music at DMLC. So great was this event that the students were given a holiday. immediately, Professor Reuter began teaching twenty-two hours a week, and the next year

Choir Combines Travel and Song '''l'bIrty 'concerts! You sang thirty concerts?" Yup - that's what the 1972 College Choir Tour was all about. The tour began with a weekend "pre-tour" from March 2f to 26. Tbe choir went to I:ake Bentm, Minnesota; Sioux City, Iowa; Sioux Falls and Clear Lake, South Dakota; and Marsball, Minnesota. A sudden sleet storm in South Dakota made the trip much more exciting. After-arrlving-in Clear Lake only minutes before the concert, the choir was greeted by many people who Iraved the weather to hear them. The concert went on as usual despite the flickering llgbts because of Ice on the lines. The final concert of the lX'e-tour was in Marsball. The regular tour began on March 29 when the rest of the students began their Easter

Two other points of interest connected with the Festival were the displays of pictures of Reuter's time and the wooden director's stand, which was built in New Ulm, given as a gift to Professor Reuter, and was refinished and used by the directors at the Festival. Alao four of Professor Reuter's children were able to come and hear this program of their father's music. They were Magdalene of Milwaukee, Marie of MIlwaukee, Elizabeth of Beaverton, Oregon, and Fritz of Madison, Wtscoiisln. . HIs famlly, his students, and all those who attended the Reuter Festival, as well as those who participated, were given through this service a chance to review the events and work of one of the many men of our Synod, who spent years of his life in service to the Lord.

Twelve activities, including such events as long and short relays, softball throw, hurdles, couples' piggyback races, and a tnuddy tug of war, characterized the competition. The sophomores and freshmen proved their athletic abilities by taking first and second places, respectively. The day closed with another picnic, this time with faculty and their families joining the students.

The questions were soon answered, though, as phone calls and students returning from breakfast made the important announcement: "Today is Arbor Day!" The day commenced,with an eight o'clock chapel service, followed by the assignment of work groups to professorages and various areas on campus. The privileges of being an upperclassman became apparent as the seniors took the day off while the fresiunen, sophomores and juniors raked lawns, washed windows, or did various otaer yard work.

Seniors to Begin Their Work in God's Kingdom "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13 is the motto that will. encourage and guide this year's 128 seniors as they graduate from DMLC on June 2. The commencement exercises will be held at 10:00 A.M. in the Luther Memorial Gymnasium. Pastor Harold Wicke, literary editor at the Northwestern Publishing House, will give the graduation

sermon, while Professor lloyd Huebner. will serve as lituraist, DMLC president, Conrad Frey. with Professor A. J. Schulz, vice-president of Academic Affairs, will present the seniors their diplomas and also award three degrees in absentia to teachers already out in the field. The seniors will sing a special class hymn written by members of the class. Kathy Mantey wrote the text for which Murray

Davis composed the melody. There are always mixed emotions at graduations; feelings of pride and accomplishment are mingled with . awe and humility concerning the work about to be started. The thoughts of the graduating class of DMLC, 1972, can very appropriately be summed up in the final verses of their class song, where they ask for God's guidance and blessings as they do His work on earth.

Faculty Holds Banquet for Seniors

Ladder to the Future Another school year is over. For some students that statement means readiness to begin one's ministry in God's kingdom. For others, it signifies but another step up the ladder to that readiness. The ladder: what an appropriate synonym for DMLC! Whether one stands on the bottom rung as a beginning freshman or at the top rung as a graduating senior, he is headed toward the same goal as all the others on the ladder: God's ministry on this earth, whether It be in one's home town or halfway across the globe. The ladder: sometimes It seems kind of wobbly, sometimes the step from one rung to another is wide and painful, at other times onetakes two or three rungs at once. If one keeps the ultimate goai in mind, however, he cannot help rejoicing at the slightest progress up this ladder. Another year means another step closer to being able to enter the teaching ministry, to bring the joy we have found in Christ to our own classroom full of God's children. We thank God for this year, and we pray that He would guide us all in future years, both up the ladder and beyond, so that perhaps we, too, can lead others to take that first step onto its bottom rung.

The place was Sleepy Eye's Orchid Inn and the date was Tuesday, May 30th. For the seniors, this was the traditional Faculty-Senior Banquet. The faculty provided the entertainment with Professor Jacobson as the Master of Ceremonies. President Frey and the class president, Steve Kehl, provided the closing remarks. The banquet." which is a traditional way of honoring the graduates, dates back well over forty years. At first, the seniors went to the homes of the . professors.' When the classes grew in size, the locations changed' from .Turner Hall, Eibner's, and recently, to the Orchid Inn. The faculty committees are divided into the "evens" and the "odds." It is the job of the faculty to serve on the even or the odd-numbered years respectively. This group organizes the entertainment, and faculty wives help to decorate for the banquet. Invitations are then sent out to the seniors to .enjoy a meal and entertainment together with the faculty and their wives.

Lives Brighten as Love Shines by Ruth Bauman "What the world needs now is love, sweet love. That's the only thing that there~ just too little of." Catchy tune, isn't it~ But have you ever stopped to really think about what it means? Most people, I'm sure, would agree with the song writer that love is one commodity in our commercialized age which is often short-stocked If there were just a little bit more of it around, life would be so much more pleasant. We've all thought these thoughts at some time or other. But has anyone made a personal effort to do something about the sltuatlon~ The question arises, "What is meant by love?" Love does not necessarily refer to romance, for some people isolate themselves in their own world of "love" and let never a ray of love shine out upon the rest of the world No, love is something more. It is an optimism, a happiness, an unselfish joy felt within the soul. Where does this feeling, this emotion come from? We are all born with It; the only problem is realizing it is there and putting it to use. Once love has been rediscovered in the soul, it can only remain love· If It nows freely outward. It sounds paradoxical, but It's true. Only by giving away love, can love be kept, and kept strong. How then can love be given away? Giving, or sharing, the love in your soul is, at first, a conscious effort. Make a conscious effort to shower drops of sunshine on all you meet, but don't waste time dreaming up extravagant means of doing so. Rather concentrate on the here and the now. The people you see every day in the same situations, after a time, become so familiar that you take them for granted, or Ignore them, or just don't see them at all. Here's your ~

portunity! Take these routine situations and tum them from drudgery into pleasure. Let happiness sparkle all over your face, greet your neighbor with a cheery greeting, not just a dull "hi, " and add a comment, a compliment, or a question to your greeting that will make others feel happy, too.

and data sheets will also be prepared in anticipation of the visit by a North Central examination team. It is the report of this visiting team which will be acted upon in the annual spring meeting of the association to determine whether the college should be granted recognized candidate status. Recognized candidate status for accreditation is not accreditation nor does it assume or even imply eventual accreditation. Candidacy means only that a college is actively engaged in the accreditation process and has shown the potential to achieve accredited status. Thus, within three years, an additional self-study report must be filed, another visit made, and favorable action taken by the association

before Dr. Martin Luther College will be regionally accredited. By synodical resolution, Dr. Martin Luther College is to continue to work toward regional accreditation as long as it does not cause the college to compromise or to violate the Christian principles which govern the educational endeavors of the Synod. Accreditation is being sought as one means of simplifying procedures to gain state certification for our Christian day school teachers in those states which require all teachers to hold state teaching certificates.

receive our certification in the W.isconsinEvang.elical Lutheran Synod as full time workers for Christ. Mter spending the last few years studying at your feet, DMLC,we are hopefully now ready to use the knowledge we have gained to teach in the schools of our Synod. Aswe lookback on the campus that has become our home for the last few years, we see that it is growing. The recent addition of a new library building has provided for us better and more adequate areas" for study and research. The new memorial organ continues t? enhance our chapel services to serve us wellfor concerts and recitals. The 'sports department is looking forward to the new DMLC football season next year. Allof these things will help to make better teachers for tomorrow, Besides doing their regular work, the faculty was diligently working on an accreditation program. We.hope and pray that the Lord will bless the work these men have delivered. Although we may not have always realized that all of our su?jects were needed for this calling, ~e mu~t now ag.ree that th~y Will help direct us in our years of teaching, This education along with the guiding hand of the Lord will give us the courage to carryon the work of the Lord to the best of our abilities. Since our class has chosen as its motto the passage, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me," it can serve a~ an inspiration to all of us when times get rough and doubt creeps into our minds. Revealing to us our strength in Christ, our trai~ing here at His school will certainly be of indispensable value to bring the Gospel to God's children entrusted into our care. We thank you, DMLC, and pray that the Lord will continue to bless the fruits of your work.
