Alpha-Omega Players .Visit Campus By Steve Groening On Wednesday, September 28, the Alpha-Omega players presented Neil Simon's Broadway comedy smash hit, "The Star-Spangled Girl." The large Chapel-Auditorium crowd thoroughiy enjoyed the zany one-liners and comic situations. The performers, John Westbrook, Paul Pierce, and Cindy Coleman, with lighting by Rosalind Huffman, gave a lively rendition of the play, making it a great performance for aU. "The Star-Spangled Girl" spins its fun out of the presentday tendency of bright young men to dedicate themselves to dissenting from old established American traditions. Andy Hobard (John Westbrook) and Norman Cornell (Paul Pierce) live in poverty in a San Francisco studio apartment in order to publish a magazine devoted to social protest. Their frantic efforts to keep their. magazine going are

hilariously complicated by the intrusion. of Sophie Rauschmeyer (Cindy Coleman), a cute corn-pone Southern girl. As a former member of the U.S. Olympic swimming team, she is so thoroughiy American that she is scandalized by their irreverence for her patriotic ideals. Norman falls so hopelessly in love with her that he is unable to write any more heretical artlcles under his various pseudonyms. Sophie, constantly harassed by Norman's good intentions, loses her job at the Y.M.C.A. when he comes to visit her at work. Andy, desperate to save the magazine, hires Sophie to keep Norman happy and creative. But Sophie Jails in love with Andy, producing quite a situation until the wild and happy ending. "The Star-Spangled Girl" was one of Broadways biggest comedy hits of the 1~7 season; it drew consistently large audiences for an eightmonth run.

Publish and Conceal Not By Kathy Sievert

While you were busily oc-' cupied with your job, vacattcn plans, and other outdoor activities this summer;' our campus received its annual "housecleaning." But yet there was something different in tile air this par.ticular summer. The Doors received an extra pollsh or two or three and not even a blade of grass seem.ed out of place. Even several -weeks before, the singing of the' birds above .made one sense that something grand and magnificient was about to take place! For on AIIgust3, 1977,the 44th biennial convention of YOUR Wisconsin Evengellcal Lutheran Synodopened with the blessing of the Almighty God. The theme of "Publish and Conceal Not" from Jeremlah 50:2 defined the major task which lay ahead for the convention. In regard to this, President' Oscar J. Naumann exhorted that "Today we are among the chosen witnesses of the God of grace and truth. In His grace and mercy He has

entrusted His full counsel of salvation to us and has preserved us in the confession of His truth despite the devil', the world, and our own sinful Oesh. "This truth we are to. PUBLISH. Godhas not intended His truth to be concealed ... PUBLISH AND CONCEALNOT our God bids us today! He still has His elect who have not as yet learned of their Savior who died for them and rose again. Since He alone knows who these elect are, we are to publlsh the goodtidings of . salvation to all nations wherever He opens a door for us to enter. Since the harvest truly is great and the laborers so few, we are to implore Him daily to send forth inore laborers into 'His Harvest." If we don't" harvest, who will? After being inspired by this commission of the Lord, 280 voting delegates and 112 advisory delegates set to work on the niunerous matters. The conscientious effort of all resulted· in the convention's being credited with extremely

smooth orderliness. The outstanding dedication' of these servants of the Lord was hastened with great joy 8I!d diligence. Here we would like to especially note that Pastor Otto Engel declined to be a candidate again for the College Board of· Control AFTER 24 YEARS of service, 19 of which he served as chairman. We thank and praise the Lord that He has permitted Pastor Engel to serve our school so faithfully. While simultaneously remembering the convention's theme and service, may we also heed this particular statement: "To furnish the required number of teachers, the enrollment in 1980 at DMLC must be 794and by the year 2000 must cllmb to 998." Much less, the recent demand for emergency teachers, with 20out in the field this year, the anxious cry for pastors expresses an extremely sad critical list! One congregation had to call 15 times before (cont. on page 3)

There are some new faces on campus this fall. They aren't the freshmen and they aren't a part of the student body. Have you guessed yet? They are the new faculty members. On Sunday, September 11, ten people were installed as instructors at DMLC. Six of the ten installed as instructors entered the music division. They are Miss Jane Annexstad, Mr. James Bakken,' Miss Rachel Gerlach, Professor Roger Hermanson, MiSs Vicki Tippett, and Miss Deb Voss. Miss Annexstad comes from St. Peter, Mn. She attended Bethany High School and furthered her education at Mankato State University. She was a substitute music teacher in the Minneapolis area. She recently tra veled Europe for two months. During the summer she worked at a Montessouri nursery, school. Ever' since she was little, she wanted to be a piano teacher. Her dream came true as she accepted the emergency call to teach piano to students here at DMLC. She has 53 piano students to keep her busy. She likes it a lot and finds the students very willing, cooperative, and friendly.

Mr. James Bakken is from Genoa, Wis. He attended Luther High School at Onalaska, and continued at DMLC. He accepted this emergency call "to gain experience in teaching music." He also "felt that there was a need." He teaches organ and has 53 students. By this teaching experience, he hopes to decide if he'd prefer to teach music in a high school or be a grade school teacher. Miss Rachel Gerlach is from Mequon, Wis. She attended Wisconsin Lutheran High School in Milwaukee and· continued her education at DMLC. She accepted this emergency call to "gain experience and so something where I was needed." She teaches piano and organ to 45 students. '. Professor Roger Hermanson originates from the Sun Prairie area. He started teaching at DMLC where he emergency taught for five years from 19691974. He went to WISCO and directed the bands and in 1975 accepted a call as chairman of the music department at FQx Valley Lutheran High School. He then accepted the call to teach at DMLC. He directs the Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble and College Chorale, and teaches three sections of Basic Music. He likes DMLC very much and thoroughiy enjoys his work. (cont. on page 3)

~ . E,mergency Teaching Schedule, 1977-1978 . Student,

By Betty Kuecker "I don't see how I can possibly make it through this!" How often have you had these very words nagging at your brain? Perhaps it was at a time when you had three tests, two papers, and umpteen dozen reading assignments due on the same I day. Then the world seems to be closing in on you. Your mind can't concentrate on anything except the words, "Where do I begin?" There's so much to do, you don't know what to do first. Brain tells mind to calm down and start with the most important things. Here's the tough part. What has the priority - a research paper or a home football game? You convince yourself you'll survive, even ·ifthe reading assignments never get done. And who cares if you do lousy on the tests anyway. You don't. .. or do you? This is a problem faced by many students here at DMLC. There seems to be more to do than the time to get it done in. You're positive each professor believes you have only his class to study for. What are they doing to you? Sometimes you feel all they want to do is teach you how to endure "humongous" amounts of pressure., Believe it or not, there's more to life than just studying. You can surely find at least one thing better to do than homework. Along with assignments, (there are many of them,) there are sports, the play, a job, piano or organ practices, and numerous organizations to attend, not to mention class meetings, homecoming floats, birthday parties, walks to Flandrau, and just plain sitting around the dorm talking and munching popcorn. Eventually, the thought of studying starts pounding in your irain, as you say to 'yourself, "Why me?" The horrible decision is leaving your friends back at the union because your guilty conscience prompts you to go and study. Mter a night of trying to study, the excitement for the evening is getting together with friends in the Round Table, where you reward your previous futile efforts to study by "pigging-out!" Time slips by and so does everything else. .. Procrastination is your major study habit on this campus. You begin to believe there is no possible way to get everything done. There are only 24 hours in a day, and your body tells you to sleep at least a couple ofhours every now and then. But, alas, the assignments don't stop coming. The clocks don't stop running, and the Bionic Man doesn't come to your rescue. Suddenly you find yoUrself staying up aU night memorizing 61 passages for a Doctrine test, or typing a composition due first hour, or figuring out a lesson plan, or 'writing a speech: While your roommate, who has the easier semester, is in bed sleeping. Total desparation sets in. Cups of coffee, remains from the last batch of popcorn, cookies, M & M's, candy bars, and "No Doz" all decorate your cluttered desk. You even count the tile in the bathroom in an effort to keep awake. (Did you know that Hillview third floor bathroom has 116 tiles on one wall?) It's always nice to walk down the hall and notice someone else still studying around 3: 00 a.m. A radio is a device to keep you awake, until all the late-night stations go off the air. Sometimes you might decide to take a ten-minute nap, which turns out to be a three-hour crash. Eventually, as you do make your way into bed, a-flash of home may enter your mind. Home is a dream so far away. You also dream of the summer with Its days of no worry, no deadlines, and no homework. But dreaming is not a part of the "real world," for you only have time for thoughts of homework. The next morning you feel all fresh and ready to tackle the world. Right? Guess again. Everyone haS bad days, but some days should be banned from human participation. Your smile is replaced by a sag. The sparkle in your eyes is replaced by dark circles. For some reason your classes seem to start earlier than you can get there. (Everything goes wrong the whole day, and you wish you ~ould skip the entire day.) But with everything to get done, you can't afford to waste one day. You find yourself hoping you don't get sick. The highlight of a totally exasperating day is sitting in the auditorium waiting for chapel. Frustration and worry nearly bring you to tears. But wait! The semonette is about man's desperation, the relief he finds in the love of God, and the fact that God is always with him to help him. What a wonderful boost of encouragement! So, what do you do when you feel you can't go on any longer? This poem by Dory Previn perhaps has the answer: "i can't go on imean i can't go on i really can't go on/ i swear i can't go on so i guess i'll get up and go on ... " You can't give up. It's. going to be a long year. But once it's over, you will have all the memories, goodtlmes, and headaches to lookback on. lam ... you are ... life Is ... So, keep on keepin' on, and we'll see you next month ..

We have all come here to DMLCfor another year of learning. Some of us are new students and some of us are veterans on the DMLC campus. Spending this year together is a special blessing. This Is true because during this time we are together .with hundreds of brothers and sisters in the faith. Above aU,we are under the guldance of our Shepherd, Jesus Cbrist. Here at DMLC we have a unique opportunity. Not only do we have the world's wisdom at our fingertips to study and research, but also, and more important, God has given us a wealth of' opportunities to learn of Him and daily to grow in faith and love. For this we should thank Him with all our hearts. Weshould ask our heavenly Father to guide us so that we do not become overly concerned with adjusting to a new schedule, new professors, and day-to-day trivia. We should ask for help to keep our. minds and especially our hearts on Him. When witness opportunities present themselves, we should ask Him for help to share His message of our personal Savior. . We should especially ask for strength to guard against daydreaming and many other ploys of occupying ourselves when certain professors do not tickle our imaginations or interest our inferior minds. We should ask Him to keep us respectful and attentive to those whom God has placed in authority over us. But most important of all, we should ask Jesus for help to fight against the devil, whose tricks would keep us from mindfully and sensitively attending Cbapel services.

Cont. from page 1 Miss Vicki Tippett is from Galena, 1lI. She accepted this one year emergency cajl to teach music (organ only). She says teaching is a lot different from being a student, but she enjoys it. "It's hard to teach up here and then go back to being a student again, but finally, it's a question of deciding where you're needed the most." Miss Deb Voss comes from Libertyville, Ill. She graduated from DMLC in 1977 and accepted this emergency call for one year. She has .45 organ students and enjoys her work very much. The DMLC. students and faculty welcome these new music instructors and wish them an enjoyable and meaningful stay among us.

Given By Carol Meier On Thursday, Oct. 13, the Bloodmobile paid its semiannual visit to our campus. Of the 204 donors, 73 people gave blood for the first time. Only 22 people had to be turned away because of minor ailments. Three people deserve special recognition. -Susan Ratzburg and Tom Zarnstorff have given a gallon of blood each and Prof~ John Micheel has given a total of 3 gallons. A special thanks is extended to Jeff Davis and Stephanie Kell for their help In making the day run smoothly. 28 student volunteers also helped make the day a success. The Bloodmobile will be returning again In April.

Ed. - Barbara Rach Is a 1976 graduate of DMLC. LaCrosse Tribune Cancer. Say it and most people think of death, suffering. But say cancer to teacher Barbara Rach and she thinks battle - a battle she believes she has won. Miss Rach contracted Hodgkin's disease, cancer of the glands and lymph nodes, last September. Before the diagnosis, doctors thought she suffered from swollen glands, anemia and mononucleosis. Now a year later, Miss Rach this fall begins teaching second grade at Mt. Calvary Lutheran School, LaCrosse, Wis., her alma mater. She taught for two weeks in Yale, Mich., before contracting the disease. Hodgkin's disease had entered the bone marrow when Miss Rach was diagnosed last year. Six months of chemotherapy followed. She suffered reactions to the chemotherapy nausea, vomiting, chills, high fevers, and weakness. Piano playing, ceramics, macrame, and painting helped pass the time of chemotherapy and helped Miss Rach regain her strength, she said. At her last medical examination, "I didn't have a trace of It (the cancer) in me," th,e young educator said. But she is. quick to add that doctors don't consider the disease cured. "We'll have to wait several years to tell if it's "completely gone." She will have another examination in September.

There is strength, a peace surrounding Miss Rach that she says comes from God. "I'm a Christian and so death never lies ahead like a blockade or a barrier. "I think of myself as cured," said Miss Rach. "But if it's God's will that it comes back, I'd just have to trust in Him again. He took me through this and He'll take me through it

again." The voice for the first time quavers. "As a human, you always ask, 'Why me?' But according to what I believe, this is not a punishment. It's for some reason for my own good." It perhaps has been for the good of others. Through Miss Rach's strength and faith, she feels she has given those around her strength. "It's not like I want to be a hero, but if my strength gives them strength to look to God, I like that idea." Miss Rach has kept busy this summer with preparations for school and ceramics classes. ""When I'm passing. the day, the Hodgkin's doesn't come into my thoughts a lot. But when I'm running or riding my bike, I think, 'Look at the strength I'm getting back." The cancer has helped her grow, Miss. Bach says. "It's made me closer to God and closer to my family." Above all, she stresses, the experience will help her teach. "A teacher teaches from experience and I'd have to say this has been an e$rience. It will help me teach of' two worlds, heaven and earth." She smiled and added: "I want to teach forever."



Synod Convention Cont. from page 1 receiving a pastor! The Commission on Higher education reminds us that "the strength of our church In the future lies to a great extent In the workertraining program of today." The legion of other issues which rest - mark the present • tense - upon the delegates' shoulders are also YOUR issues. They were detailed in the "Wisconsin Synod Herald" which, was sent to each of our synod's 180,000 homes and also In the September 18 issue of "The Northwestern Lutheran." After you received it in your mailbox here, did you simply scan it and toss it into the nearest wastebasket? Hopefully' not. . The convention closed on August 10, but as you know, the issues certainly are not closed. It is also your responsible option to take your opinions concerning these to YOUR representatives your delegates and pastors. After much prayer and consideration, we finally and fearlessly can trust that "all things work together for good to them that love God" in the decisions of these issues. Within the scope of so filmy diverse issues, the solid basis of the one, true Word

yet unifies the convention and Synod. This summer it may have been just another convention in another place. at another time. It •simply concerned the difference 'between life and death for all human beings on earth. It only concerned the creation, purpose, and destiny' in the everlasting life to follow for all men.

Homecoming Week Is Busy By Ramona Owens The mythical island of Atlantis, the watery grave of a utopia, never was or was it? Last week we honored this myth. Blue and green streamers flowed from a peak in the gymnasium, seahorses covered one wall, the floats aptly called - carried fish bowls, crashing waves, and sunken cities. Far from being a utopia, DMLC held its Homecoming Weekfrom October 9 to October 15.The activities started out as small white-caps when the Powder-Puff preliminaries took place on Sunday. The junior -girls won, first over the senior team and, later on, Wednesday night, over the sophomore team. The freshman girls conquered the senior girls. More waves were made when initiation began. Nighttime marching petered out a little, especially among the men. Talk filtered around that the sophomore men just didn't have enough brawn. But in the parade, didn't the husky freshman need motorized help up the' .Fifth Street hill? Mealtime serenading sounded lusty. Many choir prospects may have been lurking under those beanies, but not too many seamstresses; in fact, after close examination, Summit Hall must have a very empty stapler. Participation in each day's activity increased throughout 'the week as more people became informed. It's hard to imagine after Tuesday's clash day that anyone could still think these were normal days. On Wednesday, the campus looked like a tea party with most of the students dressed up. Suckers popped up in classes on Thursday. Some professors could hardly believe their eyes. others shuddered when students spoke in class, their wagging tongues dyed such dreadful colors. And the few professors, mean enough to give tests during Homecoming week, got their reward: sticky answer sheets. On Saturday, the weather, bright and cold, the parade and the game and the banquet followed each other in quick succession. The parade started downtown at 11:30 in the morning. First came the Color Guard holding the flag; and behind them, the band members rode a hay trailer. Performing to the music, the Porn Pon girls followed the band and then came the floats and clubsponsored cars. •

The senior float - "Victory in the Bowl" - held a giant fishbowl and won last place. The third-place freshmen float carried a wave crushing a boat _ "Like Atlantis, the Comets are sunk." A huge football manned by two people threw a comet at Atlantis on the sophomore float - "Send Cornets to the depths of Atlantis" - it won second place. Fir!rt place went to the junior float carrying a volcano that caused Atlantis to sink "Cornet them to the Deep." The game against Concordia began at 1:30p.m. Until the last five minutes, it looked as if the Cornets' undefeated, season would continue. The Lancers, however, upset the boat and won with a score of lU. ' At the banquet that night the people ate ham and shrimp and later listened to the three masters of ceremonies: Sue Gorz, Louise Malchow, and Paul Schierenbeck. Mark Leitzke handed out the awards, giving the spirit award to the sophomore class. Coach Gorsline introduced the football team and thanked the fans for their unequaled support. Entertainment followed the twenty-minute break. A group from Northwestern called "Mad Man Boogie Band" sang theusual buffalo and New Ulrn lyrics put to roc't music. The audience laughed a few times, but nobody expected the unasked-for encore. ' Cyndi Plamann and Lori Rich blended well in "Annie's Song" and others; one was an original. Fifties' music filled the gym from the four-man, two-woman group called "Dr. Bopp." The choreograPhy was imaginative and the participants seemed to be having fun performing.

'71¡ AfLAN1ts LT.J Lancers

Win By Larry Czer

'"It was a, great emotional victory!" exclaimed junior tackle Gary Bain after the Lancers upset previously undefeated Concordia-St. Paul. The 'Lancers made their homecomiilg an exciting game with a 14-8comeback win, Two fourth-quarter touchdowns rocked the boat for Concordia, The first TD came on a run by quarterback Tod 'Bartholomew from the one-yard line, The second on a 17-yard pass from Bartholomew to tight end Jim Hahn. The score came with a little over one minute left in the game. The game was going to be a thriller right from the start. On the first play from scrimmage, Bartholomew found flanker Mike Staerkel for a 75-yard gain into Concordia territory. The first half was a defensive battle; the lone score being a Concordia touchdown with one minute left in the first half. Concordia led ~ until the fourth quarter. Before the game, Coach Gorsline said he needed three touchdowns to win, As it was, he needed only two. Concordia came to DMLCwith a iMl record and most likely favored to win - except by 45 DML~ football' players. Gorsline said, "We always play well for homecoming, and we've given Concordia tough games in the past." How accurate he was. Concordia's rushing offense was heralded, especially with the "Juice" in the backfield. It ~happensh~number~32the same as O. J. (Juice) Simpson of the Buffalo Bills. He left the game with an injury. Kim Techlin, Bill Plamann, and AI Greschner played a big part in stopping Concordia. Their big plays on crucial downs thwarted the Comets. "We played good basic football," said Gorsline. "Basics are essential to winning." The final drive was exciting, a screen pass left set up the TO pass to Hahn. The pass Itself came on a '47 Power Pass Right.' After Hahn scored, he gave the ball to lineman Gary Bain to spilre the victory home. The "juice" of the Comets came up short against the DMLC Lancers. The victory now puts DMLC in position for a possible tie for the conference championship. The Lancers are now aiming to defeat the Northwestem,(Wis.) Trojans, a feat that hasn't been accomplished in modem DMLC football history.

Although the more prominent of the fall sports on campus is football, this article is not about football. I will inform you about one of lesser recognized sports, otherwise known as cross country. We have two cross country teams at DMLC. The men's team is coached by Prof. Paul Boehlke and Assistant Dean Stephen Hintz. The women's team is coached by Mrs. Jeanette Boehlke. The men's team has two returning veterans in Bob Kramer and Mark "Smiley" Leitzke. New recruits are Nathan Eberhardt, Paul Kaiser, Dave Niemi and Ed Raabe. After a slow start, the team has been steadily improving. The weekend of Homecoming found the team in St. Paul for the Concordia Invitational.

DMLC Football Is Something to Watch

October 31 Now is the time for all good witches to test-flight their 'brooms and for goblins to practice hobgoblin'. Halloween, case you hadn't noticed, is tonight! Halloween or All Hallows Eve, the name given to October 31, now chiefly is known as the Eve of the Christian Festival. But it long antedates Christianity. The two chief characteristics of ancient Halloween were the lighting of bonfires and the belief that this is the one night in the year during which ghosts and witches are most likely to wander. For most of us, however, Halloween has become a night of fun and frolic!

Women's Volleyball Is New By Carol Dietz The key word for the DMLC volleyball team this year Is "new." Besides new uniforms and new players, they also have a coach who has introduced new plays and strategies. As most' know, the new coach is Judy Wade, a 1976DMLC graduate. Coach Wade has dug into her duffel bag of books and hauled out some very interesting strategies. She is very sincere about making the DMLC volleyball program a progressive one. So far she Is thoroughly confusing referees and opposing coaches with her maneuvers. One of the new strategies disposes of the typical "W" for service receiving. Miss Wade has replaced it with a cup or semi-circle, She is virtually using an eight-man starting line-up by constantly rotating two players into the game at designated times.

In the fll'st week of the season the varsi_tybuild their record to ~ as they went undefeated. They began the season by sweeping st. Paul Bible in three games'. The Lancerettes played their best game so far in a scrimmage against Mankato State. They were devastating against Mankato's hard hitting team, and fought their way back from an early deficit. Two days later they pulled out another victory against Bethel. However, Coach Wade was somewhat unhappy with the play-which was below potential. On October 1, the team traveled to St. Paul Bible. They almost let victory slip by them. Mter losing the first two games (the first one by a 16-14 score), they were behind 10-5 in the third game. Mter a time out, they got their momentum rolling and proceeded to win the last three games. The victory was rather costly though. Karen Draeger sprained an ankle and will be

28-yard pass from Paul Bauer to Mike Staerkel. The DMLC defense held off the Comets to preserve the victory. . The Lancers again almost won the game on defense against Marantha. The Lancers came back after a 7-3deficit to go ahead 9-7. But, alas, the Maranatha offense moved close enough to hit a field goal to win the game IG-9.After the' DMLC score, a 2-yard dive by Bauer, DMLC attempted a two-point conversion. The snap was fumbled and the play aborted. Coach Gorsline expressed his logic on why he went for the two points, "We knew they couldn't score a touchdown on us, but they had an excellent field.goal kicker. Had we made' it, we would have negated their kicker." The Lancers then rebounded for an upset over Loras College of Debuque, Iowa. Loras, a club football team, had' a good passing attack. The defense was very obstinate, giving up only one touchdown. DMLC scored on a 53-yard scamper by Tom Mulinix in the fourth quarter. Tod Bartholomew also scored earlier on a one-yard plunge. MuJinix had 125 yards rushing, a high for the season. Gorsline said, "We were very pleased to win; the team had unusual spirit; they played good basic football." The bench, if you've noticed. has been cheering vehemently, "DTJ" or "Do the job." When asked if he was surprised at this year's team, Gorsline replied, '''Not really, I think this Is the best team we've ' every had. We'll never get blown out of any game - including Concordia." The game against Concordia is covered on the Homecoming section in the, center of this issue.

Mission Fair Discusses World Field By Kathy Sievert

Our Mission Fair for this year was held on November 15. The emphasis this year was on world missions, while every other year the concentration was on home missions instead of world outreach. The fair was organized again by the mission committee. This committee· acts as an arm of Collegiate Council, though naturally all of the committee

members are not necessarily council members. The committee consisted of Jodie Schumacher (chairman), Karen Jorgenson, Sue Kanzenbaeh, and Dean Zemple., These members composed the large world map which was, on the stage for the mission fair. It was a day of inquisitive interest during which Pastor Kurt Koeplin informed us about the Asian mission and showed slides, and Pastor Arnold

Under the direction of the new band director, Prof. Roger Hermanson, the Concert Band and the newly-fonned Jazz Ensemble presented the Annual Fall Band Concert on November 10, at 8:00 p.m., in the Chapel-Auditorium. The Jazz Ensemble played three numbers. "The First Thing I Do," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "Handel with


The Concert Band, numbering around 60, entertained the audience with such pieces as "Variations on a Korean Folk Song" by J.B. Chance, "Avataril" by M. Leckrone, "English Folk Song Sulte" by R.V. Williams, "Joyant Narrative" by V.F. McBeth" and ,"El Capitan" by John Philip Sousa. The Jazz Ensemble, numbering 21, is the first at DMLC. Thanks go to Prof. Hermanson for starting this band.

Mennicke told us about the African mission and also presented slides. There were also 15 breakout groups led by student leaders who were chosen from the student body. In particular, they discussed how to conduct a mission project in a Christian day school. The discussions . concerned such things as what is the goal of a Christian day school project ~ money or information? What is stewardship consciousness, and how is it demonstrated? How are mission goals publicized? Who chooses mission projects? How is money actually collected and distributed? Yes, the task of world missions is great, but rewarding! At the Synod convention this past summer, our Synod officials said we MUST make special efforts in the mission program. These are key years in 1977and 1978 and the convention resolved to send 10 new missionaries out into the field; this is 25 percent of what we now have out there. It is a daring resolution, but everyday such mission challenges add such meaningful zest to our lives!

DMLC Receives AAL Grants Our college, DMLC, has received grants from the Aid Association for Lutherans in the total amount of $41,200.00 in addition to the $11,000.00 which was given for student support in scholarships and grants-in-aid. The college benefited from the use of this money in three major areas: 1) faculty support, enabling ten, faculty members to participate in degree seeking post-graduate programs and in study tours. Six of the-faculty members are advancing toward doctorates through the assistance of

grants, two towards master programs, and two participated in overseas study tours. 2) Half of the monies were used for institutional support enabling microfilming of valuable college documents and other resource materials of historical value, tile implementation of a speech therapy program for prospective Lutheran teachers, and to support faculty forums. The most recent forum took up the topic: The Historical Roots of DMLC Education-Luther and or Erasmus. Two guest

lecturers were Dr. Lewis Spitz Jr. of Stanford University and Dr. E-W Kohls of Marburg University in Germany. In this area through funds for cultural enrlcbment, renowned pianist Paul Badura-skoda will visit the campus in February of 1978, a traveling exhibit will be obtained from the Smithsonian and also Ii traveling art exhibit. 3) Grants-in-aid will permit wider participation in the summer sessions by teachers who graduated 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years ago.

Thus it was natural that Mr. Hintz opened our Christmas service on December 6 with a song service of praise interspersed with Scripture readings concerning this great miracle. Our 1977D.M.L.C.

After humorous dialogue from Rich and Dave, we also enjoyed a great deal of other fine talent. (Cont. on page 2)

'---~-·-:~·~---~'~-:-l· Meet the Cheerleaders

We all have the Christmas spirit and everyone is eagerto go home. But with the coming of December and the Christmas Spirit, has our school spirit fled? Now don't get me wrong, I'm not referring to the spirit shown on the weekend of the Lancer Classic. There was plenty of spirit there, especially when we played or wrestled against NWC. But there was definitely a lack of spirit shown the following Monday when our women's basketball team played their first home game against Bethel. True, the team lost. But did you ever pause to think that it might be because of your lack of attendance? There were very few people there to cheer them on to a victory. After all, the Lancerettes are also a part of our school and they deserve as much backing as we give any of our men's teams. AIurther lack of school spirit was shown when two people who had volunteered to lead some cheers got up to do so, and no one cheered with them! In fact, some even laughed! The men have cheerleaders. What is wrong with the girls having the same? Don't they deserve to be backed just as much and as strongly as their counterparts? But maybe "counterpart" is the wrong word to use. According to the action shown at last Monday's game, girls' athletics isn't even worth showing up for or backing. Come on, DMLC! Let's get out there and show our support for the Lancerettes! They need it just as much as the men do. They also represent our school. Let's get out there and show that we are proud of them and our school!

By Audrey Eckelberg The student body faced a tough decision in choosing six cheerleaders to back the Lancers. The cheerleaders for next season are Peggy Eckley, Debbie Leitze, Cyndi Plamann, Wanda Schmidt, Becky Schultz, and Karen Sell. An excellent job was done by all who tried-out. Out of these six, five are returning cheerleaders. They are juniors Peggy, Cyndi, Becky, and Karen and Wanda, a sophomore. Deb, the new member of the squad, is a freshman. These cheerleaders have all had previous experience cheering the teams in their respective high schools on to victory. Peggy, Wanda, and Debbie come to us from Manitowoc Lutheran. Cyndi is from Fox Valley Lutheran, Becky comes from Northwestern Prep, and from Lakeside Lutheran we have Karen. Congratulations to the new cheerleaders! But they need our help to cheer the Lancers on to victory through this next basketball season!

When we left our heroes, we were about to hear Submediant exlaim, "Good night, Svpertonic, don't you ever wash your socks?" as he stumbled out of the closet. Supertonic: "Well, I always have my mother do my wash when I go home!" Submediant: "But Supertonic, you haven't been home for 2'h months!"

Christmas Party

'Twas the night before vacation, And all through the dorms Not a student was sleeping, All prayed for no storms. The clothes were all packed In the suitcases with care, In hopes that Mom's washer Wouldn't be gone for repair. The students were restless And not in their beds, 'Cuz visions of the 'real world' Danced in their heads. Mrs. Seigler on her sofa And Dean Huebner home in bed Were dreaming of two lovely weeks With no hassles, worry, or dread. The classes were over And the studying all done, Except vacation homework, Which is never any fun. The dorm decorations Have slipped out of view. The parties were successful And the gifts given, too. The concert was magnificent! The songs instilled a chill. The "Hallelujah Chorus" Was the greatest heart-felt thrill. As we dash around in circles To tell our friends 'good-bye,' The thought of us all parting Brings a tear-drop to the eye. We joyfully exclaim As we drive on our ways, "Farewell, dear DMLC, We'll be gone for seventeen days!" By Betty Kuecker

Moore actually described Santa and gave him the famous reindeer and sleigh. The second man, who put the actual likeness of Santa on paper to illustrate Moore's poem, was Thomas Nast, a great cartoonist. Nast drew the familiar, fat, merry, old fellow with red cheeks, and white beard, dressed in red, wearing II cap and boots, carrying a pack of toys, and smoking a short pipe.

I never was a nervous person. Not that I could remember. I'd . felt some butterflies. when involved in a car accident, but it hadn't been my fault. should I have worried? Appearing in court didn't shake me either. The judge had a fatherly air. I knew I was innocent. Why should I worry? I didn't. That is, I never used to. Kids had never scared me either. I'd beat up my punk brother regularly, and kicked his friends out of my room without a second thought. I couldn't beat up twenty-five kids, though, even if half of them were girls. Sooner or later they'd get me down, sit on me, kick me, gouge me. '1'11 suffocate under their weight. I could feel the pressure building

By Larry Czer How do you replace seven top players from a previous championship basketball squad? That is the question facing new coach Dennis Gorsline for this season. The Lancers suffered the loss of seven seniors from one of the best Lancers teams.

miller. However, DMLCwon't have a disastrous season. Even though they lost to Northwestern's Trojans 72-68, in the first round of the Lancer Classic, they still showed poise and hustle. There were many costly turnovers in that game. "I'm glad we played well," said Gorsline. "Most people expected us to get blown offthe court." Lohmiller led the team with 16 points. The next night DMLC won a thriller in overtime 78-69 over Pillsbury. Acain, turnovers hurt the team, but it finally came through. Earlier in the season DMLC dropped a close one to¡ Mt. Senario 65-58,fell to Bethel by a wide margin, 105-54. Gorsline put in an innovative offense this season. Everything is new, so our players have some adjusting to do as far as getting used to the system. It is a system guided by rules rather than set by the plays. The system is being used at the University of North Carolina. He also plans to use more

substitutes, with the game dicatating the number of players. Only three starters are set: Lohmiller, Paul Bauer, and Jeff Davis. He stresses hustle, defense, and movement without the ball. "Plan to see a hustling and scrapping Lancer five", Gorsllne said. The conferences will be more balanced this year; there are no more walk-overs expected. However, Concordia seems to be the favorite in the TRCC and North Central Bible in the MRCC. The Lancer team is expected to do well as they have some bright stars is coming up in Craig Morgan, Randy Koeppel, Dave Niemi, Paul Kaiser, and Daryl Weber, who is still out with a football injury. Watch for DMLC's famous afterChristmas surge! . Better a has been than a never was. True ... But better a never was than a never tried to be.

By Larry Czer The Lancers inherit the best team ever as this season's matmen start. Returning are national champs Al Greschner (25-0) and Bill Plamann (27-1). Also coming back is Greg Starn at 134Ibs. Newcomers include Jim Klein (150 lbs.), Kim Techlin (Unl.), Ed Voeltz (158 Ibs.), Emil Schuh (l42Ibs.), and Dave Paustian (125 lbs.). Also returning is standout Glenn Ebeling (l77Ibs.), who was out with a knee injury last year. The Lancers were the best at the Lancer Classic, even though they lost to Northwestern 27-25. The Lancers pounced on Pillsbury 40-14and Bethany 3021. Standouts included Glenn Ebeling, 3-0, two pins and one major decision, Kim Techlin, 30, a pin, a major decision and a forfeit, Al Greschner received three forfeits, Bill Plamann had one pin, a decision and an 11-4 loss. Other wrestlers include Russ Jacob, John Fruit and Randy Zeamer who doubles as manager. The team is talented and has possibilities of obtaining its first conference championship. Pillsbury has won the title in previous years. Coach Paulsen, back after a year on a sabbatical leave, leads the grapplers and hopes to claim a few tropies for DMLC. ANSWERS: 1) Meihack; 3) Bauer; 5) Sievert; Schroeder; 8) Arras; 10) Wessel.

2) Dallman; 4) Schulz; 6) Morton 7) Gorsline; 9) Krueger;

Peg Prehn goes for two points.

Lancerettes Have SlotoStart By Carol Dietz If you would see them traveling in the minibus across snowcovered Minnesota highways you might suspect that they hauled their uniforms out of their maroon travel bags. At this point you might assume that they were a gymnastics team, or an indoor track team, or even a softball team getting an early start. But it is doubtful that you would correctly conclude that they were the DMLC women's basketball team. After all, not one girl is over 5-10", and the average. on the varsity is 5-6". Miss Leopold, the varsity coach, has a very young team this year. Ten freshmen were added to .the combined roster, four of them making the varsity team. Co-captain Ann Steffen is the only senior on the team this year. Karen Putz (the other captain) and Carol Buelow are the only other returning letter winners from last year's team. The opening game for DMLC was like something you'd read about in the funny papers. It

was the Monday after Thanksgiving vacation, and, due to snowstorms, only half the' team made it back on Sunday night. On Monday afternoon the others still hadn't returned. After several phone calls with the opposing team and a near cancellation of the game, the missing players started wandering in. Given ten minutes to get their uniforms, they hopped on the minibus and traveled to Mankato. DMLC was slow getting started, and had quite a few costly turnovers in the first half. They were behind 34 to 23 at half time. They got things rolling in the second half. The Lancerettes were only several . points down when Ann Staffen and Karen Putz fouled out near the end of the game. DMLC eventually lost,62 to 55. Karen led the attack with 13points and 9 rebounds. Guards Karen Bauer and Helen Malchow added 10 and 9 points respectively. The next outing was sgainst Bethany Mankato. It was definitely not from the funny papers. The team never got any_

Winter Sports have arrived. Winter is one of the most active seasons athletically. Men's basketball, women's basketball, intramural basketball, men's wrestling, and women's wrestling (oops ) are here to entertain us. I briefly attended the two home basketball games and I was impressed by the support of the student body. Of the three big sports this season, wrestling seems to be the only one not decimated by changeovers. (INSIDE UNE: Wrestling could be exciting for all - especially if they get their first championship.) . About the ,Alumni game ... Many people have criticized the team for losing the game 6~7. That, to me, is too bad. Let me explain what basketball is all about. Our coach is a first-year coach who is under pressure to repeat last year's success. I'm not slighting any of this year's players, but" the team lost four starters from last year. That's hard for any . team to swallow. Also, don't forget that almost all the Alumni were and are very fine athletes. They'rp. always gunning to win .. I have confidence in DMLC's coaches and athletes. Watch for a very fine Lancer team when tournament momentum. Karen and Ann fouled out again trying to control Bethany's center who pumped in about 24 points. Bethany won 67-43. On December 5 the women had a game against Bethel. Again, things proved to be far from dull. Ann Steffen and Beth Lohmiller missed the game due to illness, and Karen Putz and

Help Wanted! The Recruitment Director, Prof. Delmar C. Brick, indicates that help is wanted in the matter of getting the names of prospective students, for the year 1978-79and for the years to come. The need for help has been brought about by unforeseen blessings of our Lord God. Consider these statistics which point up the blessings. In the fall of 1975sixteen Christian day schools were opened by congregations of the WEts and three additional were added when congregations from FAL joined our synod. Many thought that such an increase in schools would not be seen again for a number of years. Yet the fall of 1976revealed that nineteen new schools were opened. And again in 1977eighteen were opened. Thus a total of fiftY-6ixschools have been opened in the past

three years. A questionnaire sent to congregations of the Synod which did not have Christian day schools indicated that 102 are actively involved in planning for such schools. For the next three years the following numbers have set their opening goals: thirty-three for the fall of 1978,fifteen for 1979,and fifteen more for 1980.Thus a possibility of sixty-three more schools is there in the next three years. In addition, it has been learned that another 130congregations may also begin planning for schools in the coming years. What does all of this mean? That many young people will be needed as teachers in the decades which lie ahead of us. Indeed, the Lord is blessing us and at the same time confronting us with opportunities of


service in His Kingdom and challenges to support the work of His Kingdom. His blessing has further been shown in that He has led many young people to enroll at Dr. Martin Luther College. The 1978 graduating class will not meet the demand for teachers. Hopefully the next three classes will tie helpful in closing the gap between demand and supply in some measure a t least. These will be the classes which are among the largest to enroll as freshmen at DMLC: 236in 1975, 243 in 1976 and 246 in 1977, compared to the present senior class which enrolled as 191 freshmen in 1974.As the above paragraphs indicate there is still much to do. Our Lord's blessings make us say joyfully: Help Wanted!

Organ C~~_ Has Recital -By Dave Hagen Continuing a custom begun a few years ago, the Organ Club presented its yearly recital on Thursday, January 26. This year's recital was based on the Epiphany hymn "Wie Schoen Leuchtet der Morgenstern (How Lovely Shines the Morning Star)." Prof. Meyer began the recital by giving the audience a brief history of the hymn and its author and composer, Philipp Nicolai. Cindy Seevers began the musical portion of the evening by playing Scheidt's arrangement of the hymn found in the Goerlitzer Tabulaturbuch. Mike Pfeifer then offered his own arrangement of "Wie Schoen Leuchtet," the first of two original compositions prepared for this concert. Two Paul Manz selections followed. The first was taken from set two of his Ten Chorale Improvisations and played by Jeanine Heller. The next one

was a selection featuring Deb Schmolesky on the organ and Mary Unnasch on the flute. Michelle Moeller then presented a Pachelbel arrangement of the chosen hymn taken from Pachelbel's Selected Organ Works, Volume Three. An arrangement by Wayne Barlow followed, played by Prof. Meyer and taken from Barlow's Voluntaries on the Hymn of the Week. The second original composition of the concert, written by Mark DeGarmo, was next with Mark at the organ and Mary Unnasch providing flute accompaniment. As a speciai addition to the program, Gary Sonnenberg played three sections of Gerhard Krapf's Partita on "Wie Schoen Leuchtet." As a closing selection, Dave Hagen played Theodore Beck's intonation for the chosen hymn. No. 343,of which the audience sang three verses.

Do you know someone whose only source of the Word is over the television or radio?

Former Matron Dies By Kathy Sievert Ida Josephine Ingebritson, a previous servant of the Lord at DMLC, has been called to her eternal rest. She was born on October 18, 1887, near Story City, Iowa, Eight sisters and four brothers preceded her in death. She began her teaching profession in Christian Day Schools of the Norwegian Ev. Lutheran Church. She faithfully served many various elementary parochial schools. Her service' in the teaching ministry was interrupted for periods of time by the necessity of giving care to brothers and sisters to whom she unselfishly gave of her time; energy, and talents. An intense interest in music was a source of joy and (Cont. on page 3)

When we left our heroes last, we were about to hear the RA.'s say to Supertonic and Submediant - "Dicklebach and Schmoe! Are you guys done with your dutiesj l! Get a move on!!" Meanwhile, back in the dark recesses of the Music Center, Prof. Dissonance (boo-hisses) is about to put kindly Prof. Hermanson through the ultimate torture! Practicing Flor Peeters on the Hammond Organ!!! (Oasp-shiver l}.. Prof. Hermanson: No! No! Mercy!! Prof. Dissonance: Ha! Ha! Ha! (sinister laugh). And now for the finishing touch! Prof. Hermanson: No-please! Not that-anything but that!! Mercy! Prof. Dissonance: Yes! Yes! You now must learn to tum the Hammond on! Ha-ha-ha- and do it ten times in a row!!! Meanwhile, back in the dark recesses of the dorm, our heroes have just finished mopping the bathroom floor. Suddenly Supertonic detects (using his supersonic hearing) Prof. Hermanson's cries for help.


Supertonic: Listen Submediant!! We must stop dillydallying around, Quick to the Music Center! Submediant: Great Tritones, Supertonic! If we don't finish the floor, the RA.'s will report us to the tutor!! Will the tutor get down Supertonic's back? Will Prof. Hermanson stand up under FIor Peeters? For this and answers to other exciting questions - look forward to next months "Adventures of Super tonic !" (Please - the author needs encouragement! )

'Be Somebody' His father was a hard working carpenter, a nobody; his mother came -from an, "undistinguished" family, a nobody. So, he was just a nobody, too. At the age of nine, his mother fell ill of milk sickness. Before she died, this nobody of a mother, called her lean, lanky son to her side and in a few magic words spoke of her dreams and hopes: "My son," she whispered as she lay dying on her crude pallet, "be somebody!" She was Nancy Hanks. He was Abraham Lincoln. Somebody!

By Mike Pfeifer "I loved it!" was one girl's remark. Another person thought the snow sculptures were the wildest part of the week. Whatever the comments, the 1978SnowCarnival provided many happy and exciting moments. The theme for this year's carnival was "Mother Goose in Lancerland," for which the classes began planning various competitions. .The week-long festivities began with the introduction of the seven Snow Carnival Queen candidates on Saturday, January 28, following the Lancer's victory over St. Paul Bible. The toboggan races were held on Sunday, with contestants competing in four classifications. For the first time in three years, snow was found on, the campus, so work began on the snow sculptures that same day, and continued through the week. On Tuesdav. skits were

'professor situations.' Friday evening saw the Lancerettes go down in defeat to Concordia College. Following the game, entertainment was provided through music and a skit, presented by four groups and the comedy team of Dan and Steve. The highlight of the evening was the crowning of the Snow Carnival Queen, Cheryl Wrobel, and her court, Rachel Gerlach and Karen Sell. The last day of the Snow Carnival began early with the broomball competition. In the afternoon, the snow sculptures were judged, and in the evening, the Lancers rode to victory over Viterbo College. Following the game, awards were presented, with the juniors winning the skit competition and the seniors receiving a first for their snow sculpture. Awards were also given to the winners of the toboggan races and the broomball games. The week ended with the late night movie, Nicholas and Alexandra, and open dorm on Sundav afternoon.

thinking out on the court, but maybe it is one of those things which must also come with experience and playing together. But, the season hasn't been without its good points and happy moments. The Lancerettes did beat Northwestern Roseville 77 to 37. Ann Steffen pushed in 19 points and Karen Bauer swished 17 through the hoop. Against Concordia, St. Paul, Carol Buelow added a high of 15by hustling down on the fast break. Annalso had hot nights against Southwest and Gustavus Adolphus when she sank 16 and 18 points respectively. Lori Landry also contributed ten against Gustavus. Karen Putz and Beth Lohmiller have had several good games at bringing down the rebounds. The defense has generally been very aggressive as is evident by the number of fouis. The [unior: varsity, .although having a losing record, also has been steadily improving under the coaching of Miss Wade. Foz Hirsch and Peg Priem have been playing along with the varsity also in most of the contests. Peg, Foz, and Kay are usually high scorers in the games. Vivian Moeller has returned from a nose injury early in the season to aid the team with her good ball handling. Jo Neumann and Natalie Schulz have been adding a lot both on offense and defense.

Paul SnamIska shoots for two as Lancers face St. Paul Bible


DMLC Has After-Christmas By Larry Czer The Lancer basketball team finally seems to have put it together. The last two games have been wins for the Lancers - not only wins, but impressive victories. They defeated NorthwesternRoseville 58-57, and St. Paul Bible College 71-51. Since Christmas the Lancers have gone 4-3. Coach Gorsline said, "It's a whole new season, they

came back in shape and sharp. We beat Pillsbury, Inunanuel, NWC, and St. Paul Bible." Althought they lost to Concordia and Mt. Senario by 2 and 1 points, respectively, their record is enviahle. They are still in the running for the MRCC. The Lancers are now 6-8 on the season. Gorsline said that although a change of line-up helped, it was mainly a gaining


of confidence. The team knows it can win. The scoring leaders are Rick Lohmiller (16.6), Paul Bauer (11.3), and Craig Morgan (10.3), also Paul Snamiska and Dan Kuehl. If the Lancers can win their remaining games, they should win the MRCC. The JV's lost a heartbreaker to St. Paul Bible, 73-72, but defeated NWC-Roseville by 14.




I ~--


By Larry Cler Coach Gorsline isn't afraid to change the line-up. He has put the team near .500 with the insertion of Paul Snamiska and Dan Kuehl into the starting team and the results are better than he expected. Both Snamiska and Kuehl responded by scoring in double figures. It's quite amazing how many of the faculty members were athletes in their college days. Some, most would guess played some kind of sport, but others I never expected to be athletes. Here is part two of the little quiz on the athletes of yesteryear. (Answers on the bottom of the article.)

Wrestlers Have Good Year By Larry Czer The Lancer wrestling team is having its best year yet with an 8-4 team dual meet record. The Lancers have downed Pillsbury, St. Paul Bible, and NWC-Rosevi11e,but have lost to Pillsbury, Gustavus Adolphus and Harnline. The team captains, Al Greschner and Bill Plamann, lead the Lancers into battle with 11-1 and 9-3 records, respect!vely. Other outstanding grapplers are Kim Techlin with 1()'2and Glenn Ebeling with a 34 record. The outlook for a conference championship is good, but the Lancers must get by incumbent Pillsbury. Coach John Paulsen has a full team for the first time since the inception of wrestling here at DMLC. Look for an exciting climax at the end of the season.

The final unit, "Who Gives Us The Victory," is general praise which includes the lection Canticle "Dignus est Agnus" (L.H. page 122), giving Scripture verses from various areas.

Fourth Quarter, 1977-1978 St. Paul's, New Ulm CORRECTION We are sorry if our editorial in the February issue 1978 caused you to write to your congressman not to vote for the FCC petition, RM 2493. Although we took this message from a church bulletin, we later discovered that it was based on an unfounded rumor. The en-

closed news item hopefully will clarify the situation and correct a false impression. . O'Hair: Fact and Rumor Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the famed atheist, continues to make waves among certain segments of the nation's religious community. Some of the waves are caused by facts but others are the result of rumors repeated so often they give the appearance of truth. It is a fact that Mrs. O'Hair has filed a lawsuit in an effort to remove the motto "In God We Trust" from U.s. coins _and currency. All of the rumors concerning her connection with an FCC petition, RM 2493,are false. The "In God We Trust" suit, O'Hair v. Blumenthal and Conlon, was filed by O'Hair on September 1, 1977,but has gone largely unreported. No date has been set for oral arguments in the case, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The motto is the only issue at stake. The action is unrelated to rumors circulated for the past two and one-half years that O'Hair had filed a petition with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to have religious broadcasting remuved from tbe

airwaves. A much more limited petition was filed in 1974 by two California men with no ties to O'Hair asking the FCC to limit the granting of permits to licensees who would engage in exclusively religious radio and television broadcasting. The petition, RM 2493, was unanimously rejected by the FCC commissioners on August I, 1975, In spite of the action, however, numerous broadcasters have continued to identify O'Hair as the petitioner. As a result, yet another new wave of protests from ill-Informed people has flooded the FCC in recent weeks. Another version of RM 2493is that it is a bill in Congress to eliminate religious broadcasting. This rumor is as false as the rumors about Mrs. O'Hair and the FCC. Yet another myth subscribed to by many church people and some journalists in that the Texas atheist was responsible for the Supreme Court decisions on prayer in schools. The facts . are as follows. Mrs. O'Hair was not connected in any way with the landmark 1962 decision in the New York case in which the Court said that a governmentally written and approved prayer, required by government to be recited by school children, is unconstitutional. Shewas a party in an auxiliary case in 1963 when the Court ruled that governmentally required religious devotions for school children, such as Bible reading and or recitation of the Lord's Prayer, violate the Constitution.

By Betty Kuecker "Forgive and Forget!" That's a catchy little phrase - short, sweet. and easy to say. Just like all those other cute, witty lines we invent; we seldom live up to their message. All we know is that we should forgive the mistakes of our brother and not hold them against him. _ But how often haven't you found yourself carrying a grudge, passing judgement, or even gossiping about something someone has done? Suppose someone did something to you. Maybe you've been hurt, humiliated, offended, or angered by a very close friend. In time, or for convenience sake, you may tell him it doesn't bother you, and try to "take it with a grain of salt." But how can you get rid of that gnawing ache inside that doesn't go away? Now look at it from the defensive side. Suppose you are the criminal and have done something you regret. No matter how hard you plead for forgiveness, the guilt and shame won't let you forget. You are not supposed to torture yourself for your mistakes. Remembering them throughout life can be to your advantage, if you can learn from your errors. But you must trust that you have been forgiven. I have a very close friend whom I am constantly hurting. Day after day, I find myself mocking him, calling him names, making fun of something he believes, laughing at things he says, and mistreating our friendship. When my conscience begins to weigh me down and fill me with guilt and remorse, I beg for his forgiveness, only to turn around and "spit in his face" again. I don't understand how he can always forgive me and promise to stay by my side. Even when it seems that I will never learn, he won't quit on me. This has got to be the ultimate show of love! My friend's name ... Jesus.

By Unda Sette, '77 Each May the seniors at DMLC seem to be thinking about the same thing: Call Night. Invariably this topic comes up in conversations with classmates, friends, parents, or relatives. Last May was no different. Seniors wondered where they would be teaching in the fall. However, a new twist was in these conversations. Everyone wondered if he would be among the people assigned to teach in Michigan. On May 31, 1977that question was answered. Sixteen DMLC graduates were assigned to Michigan schools. They, like the rest of their classmates. were excited about receiving their first calls. However, the people . assigned to Michigan also had some apprehension about· the coming summer. Because the State of Michigan requires all teachers to be certified, these sixteen would be spending five weeks of their summer going to school in Michigan. The prospect of tackling three .graduate courses after two short weeks of vacation raised questions in their minds. Would their plans for a summer trip have- to be scrapped? Would they be able to pass the

graduate level courses with the required B-average? Would there really be any time to enjoy the summer of 1977? I Questions such as these were still on their minds as these people assembled at Michigan Lutheran Seminary at the end of June. The group was joined by some DMLCgraduates of the previous year. Everyone would be taking the same three courses in the five-week summer school session. Two of the courses would be taught at Saginaw Valley College, 7 miles from the MLS campus. The third course was scheduled to be taught right at MLS. Several points in favor of summer school became apparent: with no classes 'on Friday, there would be a three-dayweekend for rest and recuperation from classes. Saginaw Valley College had no student dress code. attendance at classes was suggested, but not mandatory, and the classroom building was supposed to be air-conditioned. Perhaps summer school would be bearable after all. The five weeks came and went in a hurry. There was more than enough school work to keep everyone busy -'- seven (cont. on page 3)

One night In the dead of winter "We had no time to listen: To my door a wanderer came We had no time to hear: Very little had he to say, You said It o'er and o'er, But the words were all the same: But no one lent an ear. "We know that you are dying, "Ring out! Ring out! Spread abroad How- I here did come, -. But repeat it once again, How Christ the Lord of Glory Speaking these strange words to you, In an even stranger tongueI Came down to save us men. "How the angels singing "Tell them how I "las cast out Proclaimed the holy birth, Thrown ragged to the street: How shepherds in the stable Tell them how I fainted and fell Into a battered heap. Praised him with joyous mirth. "How, He, when in the temple, "Tell them I've, wandered hither and yon Stated His work so wondrously Without a scrap to eat: In the childish words He spoke, Tell them how the road was rough 'About MY Father's business must I be: To my tired and weary feet. , "Tell of the suffering and triumph "Tell them how at your door I stand Of Mary's pride and joy, .

Their words gaveme strength for onelast hour: I lifted him up into my house, I breathed a fervent prayer: "Dear Father, let their faith ere be But his spirit had gone ahead: I wondered what he' meant by So beautiful and rare, 'Not a place to lay his head'?

Alumni News (cont. fr_<>__m page 2) books to read, two oral reports to prepare, two tests to take, and three papers to write. Not all of the time was spent on schoolwork, though. There was time for a weekend trip to a wedding, or to a friend's house, a game of softball or tennis, an evening at a swimming pool or beach, or a walk to buy an ice cream cone. As the group ate together, rode to class together. in the red and white MLS bus, and spent the evenings together watching the late movie or "Ferndale Tonight" they had the opportunity to get to know each other better. Summer school ended and the new teachers left. Some headed home for a brief vacation, while others went to their new

congregations to begin their work for' the coming school year. Summer school classes had not been easy, but surviving four years at, DMLC had prepared the group well for the challenge. Some of the professors and other students had been intrigued by the idea of an assignment committee and with the growing number of schools in the Wisconsin Synod. The food at MLS was excellent, and the new dormitories were fairly comfortable in July's heat wave. While no one was volunteering to come back next year, summer school hadn't been as bad as some people had expected. Being assigned to teach in Michigan wasn't worth all the worry it had received in the months before Call Night.

Everything scheduled to be completed by tomorrow morning must definitely be submitted by the end of the week.

King Cole (cont. from page 1) But soon he tires of entertaining himself; so he goes and joins in with a group of other kindergarteners by the merry-go-round. "Let's play army." he suggests. Immediately he assumes the position of general on the side of the "good guys." "Yyown. , .pkkk!" yells Karl as the imaginary bombs explode around him. Then, as if there had been some secret cue, he commands his troops to stop firing. "We won!" he exclaims. At that moment he looks to be the happiest little boy around. His pudgy hands are raised high over his head as he bounces up and down. At the same time, he spins around and around like a top. The dried leaves of autumn get caught up in the whirlwind and are tossed up over his head. His cheeks are flushed and burnt from the whipping wind and his brown hair is in tangles under the baseball cap on his

head. In this instance he reminds me of Old King Cole. I can certainly say that Karl is a "" ,jolly old soul." But all good things come to an end and the school bell chimes once again. All the children form a long line and at the end is a jolly boy who can't stand still. Karl may have to settle down for school now; but I can be sure that he will be there to entertain me again at the next recess.

By Larry Czer As the spring sports start to arri ve, the question arises again, "How will DMLC sports fare this season?" Well, from past experience, I can venture to say - pretty well. Coach Marvin Meihack has to refield a baseball team that went 17-1last spring. My idea is that he'll do it. Coach Dennis Gorsline should have high hopes for his netters with a strong returning cast, plus some talented freshmen, like John Kolander. Coach Bob Krueger will again have a MRCC champion with the top four returnees, plus touted freshman Paul Edmundson,


Back to baseball - Coach Meihack lost some sensational ball players from last year DonGroth, Dick Huebner, Greg Thiesfeldt, Paul Tess and Bob Huebner, but he will easily replace them. Spring sports are looking good for the DMLC Lancers. Mentioning sports, one that doesn't get much publicity is bowling, The first semester bowling league finished recently with a tie for first place between the Sand cobs and Denise's Dears. The Sandcobs won the roll-off to win the championships. Their team was composed of Gene Jaeger, Randy Hoffmann, Tom Sand, Russ Jacob, and Jeff Kirbes,

Do Well

By Larry Czer The wrestling team finished in second place once again. The old nemesis, the Pillsbury Comets, edged out the Lancers for the second straight year in both the TRCC and MRCC. Individual champs included Al Greschner (both), and Bill Plamann (both), Kim Techlin (both), and Tim Klein (TRCC). Outstanding performers included Glenn Ebeling (second in both), and, Ed Voeltz and Emil Schuh, who finished well, along with Dave Paustian and Greg Starn, In the MLCA, Greschner and Plamann both finished second. Paulsen will return all except Plamann, whose eligibility ran out.

Reflecting on this past season, one can see bright and dark spots. The loss to NWCWatertown provided an exciting game in its entirety, The win over ,NWC-Roseville was exciting to the last seconds.

Guest Editorial A Senior Remembers Forty-nine days till Call Night! Where have the years gone? I remember my grade schooldays when I wanted to be a teacher just like my dad. Every time a glimpse of h.1m was cited, I would proudly announce to my peers, "There goes my dad, the principal." He was someone Important. He had a meeting almost every night to attend, and every once in awhile he had to 'spend a couple of days at what was called Ii "teacher's conference." Upon returning, my sisters and brothers always fought over who would get his name tag. Then came those high school years. My life's ambition changed. I wanted to become a big town newspaper editor, that is, until I decided I was totally sick of school. One Sunday afternoon my parents had to drag me along to see a presentation given by some guy from DMLC and a couple of students. There is only one thing I remember of the experience and I'll never forget it. That last slide shown pictured a tossledhair little boy with big brown eyes which seemed to be looking right at me. The words "feed My lambs" entered my mind and stayed. The following September saw me enrolled at


Prof. Brick's slides helped get me here, but it took quite a bit more for me to stay. The backing I received from my family definitely heads the list. I know I don't take time enough to thank God for the wonderful friends I have made and the memories I'll treasure because of them. Certainly to be remembered are those professors who especially took time to know me outside the classroom. Above all, student teaching has made me confident that with the Lord's help, I want to serve as a teacher in His Kingdom. Forty-nine days till Call Night! It. will certainly be a highlight of our education, but it cannot mark the end of it. In an ever-increasing number, there are helpful new methods and techniques to stay on top of. Summer courses will incr.ease our backgrounds and help us become more proficient. The most Important need to consider is that we continue to grow spiritually. How can we relate God's saving message to our children if we do not have a firm grasp on it ourselves? Let us diligently heed the Lord's Words as He tells us, "If ye continue in My Word, then are ye My disciples indeed." -LuannDegner

Are the 70's Nostalgic?

By Steven Groening ---The big craze today Is the return to the 1950's,with people dressing up and imitating the way things were back then. But have you ever stopped to think that 20 years from now, in the 1990's,the craze could very well be going back to those good old 70's? I wonder what it will be like? Instead of slicked back hair, will it be the "dry look" that they'll have? Will they laugh at our blue jeans and cut offs? You girls, think of what you usually wear. Can you Imagine teenagers' two decades from now remarking to each .other how terrible it must have been to wear stuff !ike this? .What .of ,our: mannerisms?

Whaack. Surely nothing is more symbolic of spring than the sound of a bat squarely hitting a ball. And the DMLC women's softball players are eager to get the softball season under way. Tryouts started the first of March in the gym while snow was yet falling. Miss Leopold, the head coach this year, had a tough time choosing the team from the talented group of girls who tried out. Seventeen girls were chosen to play for the Lancerettes this year. Among those chosen were Ann Steffen, Karen Schwarz,

Netters Off to a Good Start By Mike PfeUer

By Larry Czer

Even before the snow was off the tennis courts, the 1978 tennis team was practicing for its season opener at Dordt, Iowa. When I spoke to Coach Gorsline, he pointed out the balance that this year's team again had. He feels he has a good team. and that competition will be very close. There are thirteen players on the team, with Joel Nelson, the only senior, as captain. Returning players include last year's number one player, Mark Meihack, and lettennen Tim Plath, Bill Otto, and Greg Schmill. There are also three fine freshmen of the team - Jon Hall, John Kolander, and Matt Schlawin - who will compete for spots on the team. Another addition this year is sophomore Gerry Hosbach. The team also has three women on its roster. They are freshmen Deb Tetzlaff, Linda Romas, and Jo Lobeda.

Spring is here. The teams are yearning to go outside to practice. Spring footbailers are eager to get sweatsuits to practice in. But more than eagerness is necessary of participants. All assume an obligation, the most important for those involved should be to exhibit good sportsmanship. Sportsmanship is an essential' part of any team. Every year brings with it a few encounters with referees or umpires. To show good sportsmanship, audience and players must look at both sides. The player is intense, "psyched up," intent on winning, totally concentrating on the game. The referee who has to watch the entire game, sometimes can't make a fair call because he is blocked out or has a bad angle on the play. The athlete involved sometimes has a better view. Referees are honest, and they try their hardest while players try their hardest: -Once, las! year, in my "illustrious" season of wrestling, the team match

Okay! That's a good one! If the success of Arbor Day was measured in sunburns, then the 1978Arbor Day was truly a success. The weather did not permit Arbor Day to be held until May 2.

Special Education - Wh~t Is It?

Prof. Hoenecke helps to plant \01 tree dedicated to him.

By Audrey Eckelberg Dr. Maynard Reynolds, professor of special education at the University of Minnesota, was the guest speaker at DMLC on April 23. He spent the day talking to faculty and students about special education and how important it is to be able to handle the "special" child. (Special includes the fast learner, slow learner, mentally retarded and handicapped, and the physically handicapped.) He spoke on the development and advancement of special education over the years. Over two centuries ago the "exceptional" person" was pushed into a corner by society. In the early 1900's, specialized institutions were established for those neglected by their parents as well as by society. These institutions didn't give the special care and necessary help to each individual as a person. The child suffered the most. In

the 1950's, parents of handicapped children organized themselves into the NARC (National Association for Retarded Children). Today, it is the National Association for Retarded Citizens. They wanted their children to be served and helped individually. They organized special classes and schools in communities rather than institutions so their child could obtain special help. 1n·1970,a court decree came up in Pennsylvania about the neglected child (those not handicapped, but not functioning normally) that needed special programs to help him. This case, along with similar cases, established the ground for the following principles written into federal law: 1. Every child has a right to an education. Teachers often give up teaching a special child. How and who decides who gets an education and who .doesn't? How can you say someone has

no right to an education? Every school is to give a child an education and especially establish a purpose in a special child's life! 2. A right to an appropriate education. There are to be modifications set for each child, especially if he is a special one. Teachers, working with the parents, decide what benefits their child so he can get a proper education. 3. Parents have the right to . participate in planning the education oftheir child. Parents know their child and can help the teacher set up his education in writing so he can make progress.

A Plea to Reason

Guest Editorial A Senior Looks Ahead 00 you remember the theme ofour recent musical, "Fiddler on the Roof?"!n the little town of Anatevka traditions were changing. Yet, when the people had to leave, they took some of their traditions with them. By using your imagination, this can be applied to DMLC. DMLCis sometimes' called a "city on a hill." We all have to leave this city sometime. And just like the people of Anatevka, when we leave DMLCwe should take some of our "traditions" with us. One of these, which all of us.)ls future teachers will use in our classrooms, is daily Bible study. Here we receive this in our morning and evening chapel services, and in religion classes. In the future we will conduct devotions in our classrooms and teach Bible lessons. We can also use Meditations for our own private devotions, as so many students here do. Another "tradition" which we don't really think about here on campus is the Christian fellowship which we enjoy. Many times we don't attend the various activities on campus because we are too busy or have something else to attend. Yet we still share in Christian fellowship in many other aspects of our lives here, such as dorm life. But when we get out on our own, we will not have our friends and all the activities of DMLC to provide us continually with this Christian fellowship. We will have various church and school activities to attend, new people to meet, and new friends to make. These can provide us with the same fellowship that we have here. The people of Anatevka took their traditions with them when they had to leave their homes for strange, new places. Let us remember to take our Christian "traditions" with us when we have to leave our "city on a hill" for strange, new places. Mary Wilde

This year the Children'S Theater also performed a skit for our Christmas party, went caroling in Highland Manor, performed a short play at a banquet honoring retarded citizens in SI. James, Minnesota, enacted another short play at the Children's Home in SI. Peter, Minnesota, and presented a portion of "Snow White" for the DMLC Women's Auxiliary in Mankato. Tonight at 7:30 is one's last chance to see friends as he has never seen them before.

Recorder Club Recreates Renaissance was performed by Miss Kresnicka and the Recorder Club with Mrs. Sharon Just as soloist and Charles Luedtke on the harpsichord, Some of their numbers included "Son tutta . : duolc.". "Fantasia _a: 6,"~·and "Prelude and Fugue in F Sharp Minor from the Well-Tempered Clavier. "

DMLC Recorder Club opens their concert. By Cheryl Schultz On April 7 at 8:00 P.M. in the chapel-auditorlum, we took a trip hack to the Renaissance Era. The trip was guided by Miss Judith Kresnicka and the Recorder Club. Their costwnes and instruments reflected this h


grand' period of time exceedingly well. Such composers as Scarlotti, Bach, Clemens non Papa, and des Prez were brought hack to life .through their music. This concert was divided into three sections. The first section


By Betty Kuecker Spring has sprung, so they tell me. Maybe now it has decided to stick around for awhile. It surely is nice to be able to open dormitory windows, that.were frozen shut all winter, to let the fresh air in again. Gazing out over the campus, we see the grass turning green, the trees budding, and the guys running around in their shorts. Of course, that old disease known as Spring Fever has been around for quite awhile already. Homework gets shoved aside; bicycling, playing tennis, throwing frisbees, and batting that ball into center field seem more appealing - not to mention just going for a leisurely walk with a close friend. It's getting harder to remember those cold, dismal winter days of the past when every moment was [usta part of the same old dull routine. Spring is a time of new life and new hope. Yes, we are alive! Wea~e more ~a~ students destined to textbooks, paper, and pens. There sa fascinating world out there within our reach' ail we have to do is grasp it for our own. There's no need to search for or plan for or dream about all the precious treasures we could have. ~ s~ple run through Flandrau, a walk in the rain, a quiet moment sitting on the hill watching the clouds pass and the birds fly: all these reveal the life God has just renewed for us. So often we find it hard to thank God for all His blessings. Too often we don't even notice. There's another way to "say" thanks, We can show our appreciation. Let's go out into the sun and grasp at that life. Let's look around and let Godknow that we see His beauty reflected in all He ha.s touched. Let's take a deep breath, feel the grass, listen to the Wind, and sense His deep love surrounding us on every side. Thi~is life! We must never merely exjst: we must live! Let spring be 10 us also.

Parts two and three were performed by Miss Kresnicka and 'special guests - Mrs. Laura Thompson, Mr. Paul Thompson, and Mr. Gene Witacre. These talented musicians are members of the . Twin Cities Chapter American Recorder Society. They.brought with them many instruments from the Renaissance Era. The instruments they played were krurnmhorn, shaurn, kortholdt, dulzian, cornemuse, and Renaissance and Baroque recorders. Musical numbers in these sections included "Ich armes Schaf," a rendition of "0 God, Our Help in Ages Past," and "Aile Welet Springe," and many others. They ended the concert with "Basse Dance 'Jouissance' from Orchesographie." At the close of this number, the audience responded warmly to a very fine evening of entertainment.

The Student Union Is a nice place for friends to sit in and. have a great time talking and playing foosball, ping-pong, or pool. The S.U. houses ia minicafeteria' with a T.V. room where we can- watch the the tube while enjoying various epicurean delights. It would be a really enjoyable place, if only it weren't continually torn apart. The S.U. lounge, game room, and Round Table is intended for the use of all students attending either DMLC or MLA. It was built as a place where students can converse and unwind for awhile. The Union always has a few occupants from the time it opens up until. 11:00, when: It closes. . . . . I'm sure that all of you have noticed the condition in which the Union can often be found. There are often newspapers, confetti, and other garbage on the floor. People have been· ripping the foam stuffing out of the chairs. In the college T.V. room, there is sign up that asks people to replace chairs and tables in their places after' they leave them. There is also a request posted asking that the tables be cleaned when people leave. All it really asks for is common sense and courtesy. As was mentioned before, the S.U. is everybody's .. We are paying for the repair to the furniture in the lounge. The floor has' to. be cleaned every day, and all the confetti on the floor makes for extra work. What' is the point of ripping paper into confetti and strewing it all over the S.U. floor? What is the point of cutting holes in the chairs. and ripping the stuffing out? Last year all the chairs were "repaired by the S.U. Board. It was paid for out of money paid by all students upon their enrollment. At the beginning of the year, all the chairs were in good shape. Now several are ripped and missing stuffing. That will cost hundreds of dollars to repair, It is everyone's responsibility to keep order in the Union. It belongs to us all. It is our property being torn apart. Why is it so hard for one person to ask another to stop from messing up the S.U.? It isn't a had idea for a person to protect his own property. There is a set of rules for conduct In the S.U. Here they are. summarized briefly:


Blood Is

the Harvest

Blood is a very personal resource which cannot be manufactured. The person in need of blood receives this precious fluid only because another person cared enough to share. This is the plea that went out for blood donors for April 28 when the bloodmobile was on campus. One hundred ninety-seven people answered that plea and gave a pint of blood so that . others might live. There were twenty-eight deferrals, or people who for one reason or' another weren't accepted. Sixty-one students were firsttime donors.

of Life!

The bloodmobile will be back next fall and there will be another opportunity for you to contribute to the harvest of life.


1) Conduct becoming Christian young people should always be observed. 2) Paper and unwanted materials should not-be thrown on the floor. There are tables and .racks provided for the papers, and wastebaskets for the garbage. 3) Chairs may be moved, but when they are no longer used, they are to be returned to their places. Why expect others to do what is our duty? . 4) The 'walls in the lounge area are not meant as an obstacle course or as chairs. They are not to be sat on or climbed over. They do break. . These rules are very general, 'as you may have noticed, and . are really governed by a sense of Christian responsibility and courtesy. They have been made with the intention of keeping the Union clean and more presentable. Let's try to observe these rules, and then we may have a Union that we won't be ashamed of when visitors arrive. Cathy' Westerhaus Student Union Board /

Where is Your Energy Going'! By Steve Groening On April 6, Dr, Dale Mordue of the Mankato State University Physics Department gave a lecture demonstration on the topic: Energy in Your Home, Do You Know Where It Is Gohig?'fhe--presentation', given in Ihe Chapel-Auditorium, presented- valuable information as to how we can save the heat in our homes from escaping, Ihus saving on heating cost as well as saving, very needed heating fuels, Dr. Mordue showed how graphs can be made that show how much fuel is being used in each home. These records can be compared to other homes and relative norms and indicate Ihe energy efficiency' of each home. The probable highlight of the presentation was the Thermovision pictures. These piclures showed homes as a black .background , with escaping heat showing as varying degrees of

white. A scale on the left side of the piclure indicated the degree difference of the black and white areas. This showed the areas of a house where the most heat' escapes, and, therefore, where more insulation is needed. Other topics discussed included the best. types of insulation available, and which materials used in building houses also provide the best insulation. In addition, discussion of a more technical nature dealt with r"'ius of the distances bet ween the air inside and outside. Dr. Mordue ended his presentation by answering many questions offered from a good-sized audience. Whilemost of the information was not of a readily practical nature, it was still highly informative and certainly gave new insights into one of America's important concerns of the fulure, that of energy conservation.

Lancers Meet Foxes By Becky Hafemelster Fox Valley Lutheran High School Band, under the direction of Paul Wendland and Jeffery Hugo, arrived in New Uhn on Friday afternoon, April 28, The band hailed from Appleton, Wisconsin, to join the DMLC Band, under Prof. Hermanson, in a joint Jazz Band .Concert and a joint Wind Ensemble Concert. The two bands practiced Saturday morning and afternoon. On Saturday night, at 7:30, the two jazz bands filled the DMLC gymnasium with their music. The bands played alternate pieces. Fox Valley Jazz Band livened, up the gymnasium with the theme from "Rocky" and "Hey Jude!" The DMLC Jazz Band slowed things down with "Come Rain or Shine" and" A Song for

Someone." Fox Valley Jazz ,Band played a total of seven pieces and DMLC played six pieces. The jazz bands received an excellent turnout from the DMLC student body, who in turn heard two excellent bands give their best. On Sunday, April 30, at 1:30 the Fox Valley Lutheran High School Symphonic Wind Ensemble and DMLC Wind Ensemble performed a joint Wind Ensemble Concert.Each wind ensemble alternately played five pieces. The bands played one mass number, "El Capitan" by ,J.P. Sousa, at the close of Ihe concert. Sad to say. the audience was not as large as it had been Saturday night. Those who were there heard an excellent concert.

Entertainment Bonanza Exhibits Variety By Cheryl Schultz Where do you go to see talented singers, witty MC,s, skilled musicians, graceful dancers, and can get a touch of 'Peanut Butter' - all at once? No where but at DMLC's Enterlainment Bonanza. This year's Bonanza took place April 14, 1978 at 7:00 P.M. in the chapel-auditorium. The MC's for the evening were Steve Merton, Darrel Hartmann, and Ed Voeltz. They helped to tie the acts together with their witty personalities. The singing acts included there: "Icthus" with Luann Punke and Tim Rimple; Carol Wynkoop and Judy Metzger; "Dr. Bopp." a freshman group portraying the 50's; Lori Rich accompanied by Dawn Urnrnus: "Avalanche" with Crystal Roemhildt, Paul Berger, Dave

Niemi, Randy Kramer, and Bob Kramer; and Trudy Bittner and John Nass were accompanied by Jim Wade. Following a 1()-lIIinute intermission, was a skit called "Peanut Butter." "Peanut Butter" was acted out by Lindy Dietz. Lindy's 'helping hands' were Jo Lobeda and Janise Gygi. Following the skit came singer Chris Hagen accompanied by Jim Wade. Next on the agenda were the "Flappers." The Flappers were Cindy Hammer and Dave Covach who performed songs and dances depicting the 'Roaring '20's. "Aura" was a singing group which included Jan Nelson, Kay Purchatzke and Crystal Roemhildt. The final act was a touch of bluegrass by "Karl Tryggmonson and His Skillet Lickers"; that is. Steve Merton, Dianne Dropp,

(cont. from page 1) means bringing the education to the child in a normal setting, not to take him to the education in a clinic, in a hospital, or place .him into an' institution. Societyis demanding that more - -. capacity. be- built. in the: school. system so the teacher is sent in to helpthe child and not vice versa. These principles legalize the education of the special, exceptional child. As future teachers, all of us at one time or another will run into children who will need extra attention, care, and education. We all must be able to handle this child and make him feel welcome and not different from his other classmates. To be able to handle that type of child, here are a few hints which may help make teaching and educating such an one a little bit easier: 1. Don't demean or degrade "different" children . 2. Let the child learn to appreciate the differences between him and his classmates, but make him welcome. 3:Let the child sense his progress, and, as teachers, fully respect him for what he does. 4. Make the parents participants 'in the educational planning of their child. 5. Keep in mind at all times that God made this child and he is a human being like, the "other" Children. 6. When times get rough for you in trying to teach this child, pray to God for strength, help, and guidance. Neal Ristow and Darrel Hartmann. The Entertainment Bonanza of 1978 did indeed leave a favorable impression on students and faculty alike of the extensive talent found on our campus.

Lancerettes Have' Ups and Downs By Carol Dietz I know it may not seem as if spriiig has even arrived yet, but it's true that the Women's Softball Tournament is rapidly approaching , The DMLC women's team has been playing three double headers a week, when weather permits, in an attempt to get in as many games as possible before the tournament. The season started out rather dismally as the girls dropped both ends of a double header on a cold day in Winona. In the first game Ann Steffen had the only hit for DMLC, a homerun in the seventh inning. Augsburg was the next opponent, and the Lancerettes managed to pullout a 7 - 6 victory. It was a close contest the whole game. Lori Landry was the heroine of the game as she pounded out a double to

Golfers Are Undefeated By Larry Czer The DMLC golf team is having a fabulous year. After six matches they are undefeated and untied. Leading the way for the Lancers are Paul Snamiska and Paul Edmundson, followed closely by Wayne Schlicker, Bob Pagel, Randy Hoffmann, Randy Koeppel and Rich Carver. Snamiska and Edrmmdson have been really consistent in the matches. Both have scored in the low 80's or high 70's. The golfers have swept by NWCRoseville, Minnesota Bible twice, and a close match with former TRCC champ Concordia. "Koach" Krueger looks for a hopeful season with no less than a conference championship or two. The team has a tough schedule in the near future, but the outlook is more than bright.

knock in the winning run in the bottom of the seventh. Karen Schwarz also contributed a home run. Several days later DMLC split a double header with Mankato. Kay Shambeau had three hits as the Lancerettes scored eleven runs on five hits and won by an 11 - 8 score. It was a rather sloppy game as both teams combined for eleven errors. Ann Steffen did a nice job pitching in her only outing of the year. April 22 the Lancerettes won one and lost one at a triangularIn St. Paul. In a wild game against Concordia, the Lancerettes came out on the short end of a 15- 12 score. Nancy Kolb had two triples in the game. In the second game DMLCclobbered Bethel 18- 6. Ann Steffen, Karen Bauer, and Karen Sell each had three hits and Lori Landry had four. So far in the season Lori Landry is leading the team in hits with twelve, and she has compiled a .480 batting average. Although she has unlimited action, Karen Bauer has hit at a .500clip. AM Steffen and Karen Schwarz are the two .300hitters on the team with Ann leading the team in extra base hits. So far this year, the pitching hasn't been consistent, and the pitchers have .not always been supported with a tough defense. But that should improve as the

season goes on. One bright spot is the outfield, which lias done very well defensively. Carol Buelow has been extremely accurate in her throws from left field, and she has gunned down numerous runners trying to score. ·As for State Tournament, the students wish the entire team a lot of luck.

Lancers Are 7-5

Lancer Netters By Larry Czer

Perform Well By Mike Pfeifer With the season coming to an end, the Lancer netters can boast a record of 5-3 in their .tennis matches. Coach Gorsline is pleased with this year's team. He feels that the squad is again very balanced. As a result, the individual members have had to play several challenge matches to arrive at the team order. Presently the line-up of the top six players reads, in order: John Kolander, Mark Meihack, Jon Hall, Joel Nelson, Tim Plath, and Matt Schlawin. In a recent match against St. Paul Bible College, the team swept the three doubles and all but one of the singles matches, giving the Lancers an 11-1total. Coach Gorsline also remarked that nine of the thirteen players will receive letters this year.

Have you ever been in these By Larry Czer situations? I know I have at one The word "choke" in the time or another. It's easy to dictionary means to gag, or be strike-out, miss the free throw, strangled. However, in the area miss the field goal and miss the of sports its connotative putt. Being in these situations is meaning is quite different. a real challenge. In fact, it is the Choke means to "not come supreme challenge in sports. through in time of pressure." That's what makes sports so I pity the athlete who is placed in these situatlons: , interesting and exciting. People frequently comment batting with two out in the last about the physical ability of an inning when you're losing 2-1,or athlete, but seldom does one being at the free throw line with hear a comment about his five seconds left and your team . is losing by one, or kicking a 2G- psyche or attitude. Contrary to some beliefs, sports is 80 peryard field goal. with seven cent psyche. That's why it's seconds left to win the game, or easy to choke, but hard to come making a two-foot putt to clinch through in the clutch. a team victory.

The Lancer's baseball team improved its record to 7-5with a sweep over Pillsbury and St. Paul Bible and a split with Concordia. The only losses have come from Concordia, 7-4,5-4, 21; and Northwestern-Roseville, 11-1, 1~. The Lancers have beaten everyone else: North Central 6-3, 11-3;and St. Paul Bible IG-3, 11-9; Pillsbury 2-1, 11-1; and Concordia 14-9. Against Concordia in the opener, the Lancers had the spring jitters, but rebounded against North Central. They had a tough time against Roseville, but have been on the winning track since. Ron Ohm hit a grand slam against Pillsbury, and Larry Sellnow hit a homer to pull out the game 119. Paul Bauer, Ohm and Sellnow hit homers against Concordia. Sellnow's homer was in extra

innings and iced the Win. Bauer and Mark Tacke have looked good pitching. Coach Meihack cites the youth of the .team and errors in the Lancers' rough start as being critical. The team has five new players. The line-up includes: Mike Colla (RF), Don Eickmeyer (3B), Paul Bauer (CF-P), Ron Ohm (1B), Mark Tacke (CF-P), Greg Stam (SS), Tom Hering (C), Larry Sellnow (2B), Jeff Kurbis (DH), and Keith Bowe, Roger Kramp and Dave Essmann sharing the duties in left field. Statistical leaders include Ron Ohm (.436), Paul Bauer (.444), Mark Tacke (.371), Larry Sellnow (.370); Ohm 14 RBI's, Bauer and Sellnow 13 RBI's, Ohm and Sellnow 2 homers, Bauer one homer: pitchers, Bauer 45 SO. 7.35 ERA, Tacke 30 SO., 4,76 ERA and Sellnow 1.35 ERA. .

At last this year Is coming to an end. No more classes! homework can be forgotten, as we try to relax our brains again. But Is It really the endt Think of all we have learned this year. I don't mean only how to prepare lesson plans, write comps, or tell the difference between erosion and deposition. Think of how we have changed ... all the people we have grown close to ... all the experiences we have shared. Our memories wlll keep this past year from ending. Ufe Is a constant change. People change; faces change; friendships change. Attitudes change; dreams change; goals change. Sometimes It Is difficult to adjust to all the changes of life. Acceptance Is a hard virtue to maintain. Often we cannot even judge whether the changes are for the good or bad, because somehow time keeps pushing us on through a cloud of unreality. We don't realize what Is happening, till the changes are a thing of the past. We might try to think our way back to reality, but let us be warned: excessive thinking may be hazardous to mental health! Changes ... Suddenly, I feel like I'm getting off the "DMLC Bus." As I stand on the comer tryingto figure out whether Igot off at the right stop, I keep gazing into the windows to see famUiar faces I may never see again. The "bus" slowly slips out of sight, and I must decide which sidewalk to take. Where do I go now? How do I find the path to my changing dreams? As I start a new beginning, my mind wlll flash back to the memories of that "bus" many times. My two years at DMLC hold many precious memories. Whether they be good, bad, happy, sad, serious, or just plain crazy, they are all mine; and no one can take them away from me. The hardest part of leaving is letting go of the security I have known. I wish there were some way I could let all my friends know what they have meant to me. Drifting apart is sad. But I believe that, even though more changes, these friendships will still last. I will always remember the people who have touched my life. They live forever in a little corner of my heart. The time has come for me to say good-bye "and until we meet again, may God hold you In the palm of His hand."

We have traveled side by side, my friend. We have shared, laughed, an~ cried. Now you are going your way and IImine. We may never meet again during our lifetime. Remember the first time we got to know eacli other? Both of us were so crazy! We got close that very first night - talklng about our yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows, sharing our innennost thoughts. We have both changed since then. I used to be so quiet - you opened me up. I was very narrow-minded, and your life was so free. Your life centered around one word: acceptance. You taught me the meaning of that word: to see what was In a person, to accept what he was, and to realize that every person Is constantly changing, just as I myself am. Youtaught me acceptance. We have grown together, side by side. Our backgrolUlds are so different; yet, our souls met and we grasped each other to the very riepth of our being. We shared words, walks, crazy times, and quiet moments. We've partied and fought, laughed and cried, hurt and sang together. You showed me bow to be myself, and through you I got to know me for what I am. Now we are parting from each other; you are going one wa:!:'and I, another. Never again will we walk side by side. We will be fnends forever, but we will only share memories of our yesterdays, piecemeal news of our todays, and short notes of our plans for the future. We will never dream together, and the dreams we've dreamed will fade away. . . Yet, we will meet again,ln a special place; in an unknown time.

Two Fairs atDMLC

Prof. Hoenecke Retires

Prof. Roland_Hoenecke By RamODa Owens . The'soft-spoken man does not want to be in isolation.' Retirement, of course, doesn't have to mean forsaking the campus family, and, frankly, I do not believe Prof. Jioenecke could withdraw completely from the place that has employed .him since 1946.

Chamber Music Concert Held By Cheryl Schultz

When was the last time you enjoyed an evening of chamber music? There was a grand opportunity to do so on May 3 at 8:00, in the <llapel-Audltorium of our college. This evening of. fine entertainment was put on by the Music Department, who performed pieces by Holborne, Telemann, Bach, Stamitz, and Mozart. .._. The first number, "Three â&#x20AC;˘ Pieces," was performed by Lana Punke and Mark Birsching on trumpets; Becky Henning, french horn; Randy Kramer, trombone; Prof. Roger Hermanson, tuba. The second number "Sonata, from Die Bankelsangerlleder" was also performed by the above. Mrs. Lynn Hermanson, Mary Unnasch on flutes, and Miss Judy Kresnlcka on harpischord, did Ii fine job on "Konzert, A dur." "Sulte No.1, in C, and Allegro, Op. 4, No.1," were performed by <lleryl Wrobel, Deb Beckmann, Cindy Roemhlldt, Jill Haaning, Sue Schedler, and Becky Martin on violins; Kurt Heyer, cello; and Mark DeGarmo and Cindy Roemhildt on oboes; Neil Ristow, Jody Ziegler, and Julie Boeder on violas. Prof. James Engel directed. Judy Metzger, soprano; Sue Gorz, alto; Joel Nelson, baritone; Jean Pape Gary Sonnenberg, clarinets; and Qoystal Roemhildt, bass clarinet, enchanted the audience with their beautiful voices and well-played accompaniment in doing "Two Songs." The concert ended with an exquisite performance of the "Concerto in C Major for Three Keyboards" by J.S. Bach. Rachel Gerlach, Prof. Otto Schenk, and Prof. Engel displayed their outstanding musical talent in performing this number. Sorry to say, the audience wasn't as large as one would expect but the people that were there responded. warmly to this entertaining evening of <lIamber Music.

In this thirty-second year, Professor Roland Hoenecke will retire from DMLC specifically from his teaching oi <lIristian Doctrine. Many of us as future teachers can benefit from his teaching example. He knows his subject, and because he teaches traditionally, we feel secure in his knowledge, not floundering in our half-ignorant discussions. Furthermore, we students can sense the underlying love he holds for Scripture. Of the courses he has taught here, he even admitted his favorite, after some thought: Old Testament lsagoglcs. After . retiring, Prof. Hoenecke willl work at finishing his doctrine text in time for the '7~ school year. If It wasn't for the change to the NIV, the text would be in use next year. He must now rewrite the proof passages from the King James Version to the NIV. Uke any prospective retiree, he plans to do some traveling, though mostly to visit his two daughters in Michigan. His third child he need not travel to see since she is the wife of the Academy's Dean Schneider. When Professor Hoenecke first came to New U1min '46, his call was only to the high school, but in the following year the college began claiming his time little by little, and eventually he served the college exclusively for twenty years. New U1m will continue to be the home of the Hoeneckes. All three of their daughters, as well as Mrs. Hoenecke, have been Christian' day school teachers: no wonder this Minnesota town appeals to them. Part of the appeal may be the professor's liking for young people. He enjoys' their company, their activities and especially their sports. Let's hope he does not go Into hiding after retirement. Let's hope he realizes how welcome he is In our midst, at our activities, and cheering In the stands at our sporting events. It is the wish of both faculty and students that God bless him In his retirement.

By Steve Groening _ - _ DMLC was the site of two very interesting and exciting exhibitions recently. On April 16, the Science Fair was held In the Biology Lab. On May 7, the Art Fair was held In the library. The Science fair had 19 entries from st. Paul's In New U1m, Immanuel Lutheran School from Gibbon, and Salem Lutheran from Loretto. There were several projects on the heart, one demonstrating a hurricane, and several other well-made projects. All entries showed a great deal of work had been put Into them.

Delphi String Quartet Appears on Campus By Cheryl Schultz The evening of May 16 turned out to be not only beautiful outside, but also Inside, as the Minnesota Delphi String Quartet performed at DMLC at 8:00 In the <llapel-auditorium.

By Carol Dietz With the season over, one can now look back at the women's softball season and say that they really didn't do too badly. They certainly did the most with their talent. The team finished at about a five hundred mark for the season, which is better than many people expected them to do. At State Tournament the Lancerettes won one game and Prof. Raymond Brei lost two. As a result they returned early from the double elimination tournament. the college ~ow from a 'oneAlthough it was a bit horse' school to quite a thing." discouraging to be eliminated He also had some enso early, the team did show couragement to offer, moments of brilliance.

Supervisors Retire Can you imagine our present quarter of practice teaching being reduced to six weeks? Your six weeks consisted of one week of observation and five weeks of actual teaching and everyone was down at St. Paul's here in New U1m. Then, when you got back to school, all the schoolwork from those six weeks had to be made up. This Is the way the student teaching program was run when Mrs. Adelia Sievert and Prof. Raymond Brei, first started teaching at St. Paul's School. They were called by the college to supervise student teachers. ' Mrs, Sievert graduated from DMLC in 1933.Her first school was in Neillsville, Wisconsin where she met and married Prof. Erich Sievert. She has taught at St. Paul's for 22years. , She said that teaching is fun if you enjoy working with children. "In working with student teachers, each one was different. For some, their first calling was into the¡home. The, training at DMLCis for nof only teachers but also a good parent in the home." ., '.: Prof, Brei has served the college for 18 years, teaching both at the grade school as well as the college. For several years he taught Teaching Reading' and Curriculum. Previously he taught in Colome, South Dakota; Stanton, Nebraska; Fond' du Lac, . Wisconsin; and Norfolk, Nebraska. Prof. Brei felt that it was a tremendous experience guiding student teachers and was very gratifying in most cases. He , said, "It, was a challenge dealing with elementary students and college students at the same time." He remarked that it was a pleasure "to watch

Golfers' T_eeOff on TRCC By Larry Czer The DMLC golf team had' a successful season. They haven't lost a dual match to date, and won the Twin River Collegiate Council (TRCC) tournament. Paul Snamiska was medalist with a 77. The Lancers didn't fare as well in the MRCC as they finished runnerup, but Paul Edmundson was medalist with a 79. The Lancers lost the' MRCC by six strokes to Minnesota Bible College. In a nonconference match with Gustavus Adolphus they lost by 30 strokes. In the TRCC tournament the Lancers won by more than 10strokes over rival Concordia-St. Paul. Snamiska, Edmundson, and freshmen Randy Hoffman and . Randy, Koeppel will return as part of next year's team.

The sports year at DMLChas drawn to a close. I think it's time to reflect on the highlights of this past year. Now, take a trip down "memory lane."

Track Club Does Well By Carol Meier The Track Club has finished its first season and Coach Stephen Hintz says he is quite pleased. The first meet was held on APril 15'in Waseca. The women finished fourth out of five teams and the men fmished fifth out of seven teams. Kathy Hirsch took second in the mile.
