Waldheim went down with a crash ...

Campus Loses and Gains by Pete Schaewe Staff Writer As will happen in this perpetually changing world of ours, changes occurred on the DMLC campus over the summer. We thought we'd fill you in on several of these transformations, in case you hadn't noticed them. Returning students probably noticed a few absences on campus. The big Waldheim house on the corner was removed almost immediately following the end olthe last school year. West Hall, the college's first women's residence hall. was also razed - piece by piece over the remainder of the summer, Its parcel of ground is at present being turned into a parking lot. Severalnoticeable additions were also madeon the grounds. If you have been to Old Main to visit your favorite prof or to pay your favorite tuition, you may have . noticed that the front steps are new not quite as steep as they had been that the railing is a trifle fancier than ceiling fans in the cafeteria, if not (and who wouldn't see those big overhead), certainly made their

presence felt as they provided at least a little bit of comfort on those terribly tropical days of the semester's second week.

Unless you've been flying over campus you probably did not notice that the Academic Center has been re-roofed. Musicians have probably been so intense in their practicing that fresh coats of paint in much of the Music Center have most likely been ignored . And impossible for anyone to detect at present are the new curtains that have been ordered for the Auditorium stage, to be installed sometime in the future. The changes keep on coming. We'll try to keep you informed.

Students - Express Your Views!



by Jane Zimmerman Co-Editor Another school year is well underway. Students are pretty much settled into the dorms and most have already written at least one report and taken several tests. II's all becoming routine now. Another part of the routine at this college is undoubtedly also underway in the dorms and elsewhere by now: the usual grumbling among students about one aspect of DMLC life or another. Although students will, generally speaking, say that they very much enjoy attending DMLC,the fact that the college is both run and attended by sinful human beings naturally leads to some dissatisfaction always being present. Returning students will remember evidences of this last year: discussions in the dormitories and in some classes, the large turnout of students to discuss the college with the committee for reaccredidation, the urgings for the Collegiate Council to be more of a "student government" - just to name a few. The question is this: As the new school year begins, can we learn anything from the events of last year?I believe we can. Students should come to realize that (although we certainly do not want to intentionally look for ways to be rebellious) there are times that we should make use of good, constructive ways to express concerns and opinions, and these means do exist on campus. Our advisors. first of all. are willing to listen to any problems we students may have. Likewise we are reassured that the college president and deans - all faculty members, actually - are there to listen to students and discuss their concerns with them. The Collegiate Council is also available as a mediator between students and faculty - just talk to the students your class elected to represent you, or to the council's officers. Finally, the Messenger is available as a resource: write a letter to the editor either to inquire about something or to let your views be heard. One final point: While we should not be afraid to express some constructive criticism through the proper channels this year, we must also not forget to acknowledge our satisfaction with the many good things about DMLC to those who would like to hear about this, also (positive reinforcement, remember?).Those who work hard to make this school what it is need to hear both your positive and negative reactions. Remember, students - DMLC exists to train YOU, so don't be afraid to express your views!

Bird Causes Laughter by Jade Heiderich Hello readers! Welcome to the critic's corner! The movie being reviewed this month is "Follow That Bird." Aimed at children's entertainment. this movie stars such well-loved personalities as Big Bird, Oscar, Gordon, Maria, Grover, and Mr. Snufflupagus. A Sesame Street presentation, "Follow That Bird" commands a much younger audience than its peer, "The Muppet Movie." The jokes and comical situations are very simple, though it does seem to try to rope in adult interest by carefully weaving in satirical jabs at our American society. Such pillars of our society as suburban families, food fights, "The Wizard of Oz." and Michael Jackson are shown in extremely foolish light. The theme of the movie, for adults, seems to be the shallowness of American values and the importance of cross-racial unity. Big Bird wa; more happy¡ a"';';~g hi'-

diverse friends than he was when he was made to fit into his own racial setting. Most importantly, though, the success of the movie could be easily heard in the laughter of the children in the audience. I would not recommend this movie to people of our age group on account of its simplicity, but it is a fine movie for young children.

Have you seen a current movie or read a recently-published book that you would like to review for the Messenger? The editors welcome reviews from all readers and will reimburse the writer of each published review with $2.00 toward the cost of the book or movie ticket. One review will be printed per issue.

The Coke Controversy Students React: who preferred something other than Coke. The women on campus weren't quite as one-sided with sixty-one percent liking old Coke and fifteen percent new Coke. Forty percent of those liking new Coke were also under twenty years old. The next question asked was a little more controversial. It asked if "coming out with new Coke was just a publicity stunt." The majority of the students said yes: women 58%, men 57%. One person felt that Coke was "losing the Pepsi-Coke battle, and was desperate." Another

Dear Editor: I was pleased to learn that one of the new features to be found in the Messenger this year will be a Letters to the Editorcolumn. It will provide ourfellow students an excellent forum for expressing their ideas and opinions on a multitude of topics ranging from happenings on campus to what is going on in the world at large. Such a column must be carefully guarded however. Letter writers must understand that they will not be able to defame individuals or demean their intentions. Nor should it become a complaint department. Complaints are entirely legitimate. but only when the complainant can offer a strong viable argument for correcting a situation. Obviously, such letters will have to be limited in length, and they should be signed by the writer. In this regard, I would hope that writers will be able to write without fear of censure either from within or without the campus family. One of the benchmarks of our democratic society has been the right to free expression of opinion, within the guidelines noted above, and sOit should be here. Whether right or wrong, ideas, views, and opinions, openly and freely expressed and exchanged, are a part of what makes this country great. Without such freedom we would have long ago experienced the sort of unrest that the nation of South Africa is facing today. Through such expression change is wrought. and we grow both as individuals and as a group. Just to help get the ball rolling, here are some topics which I believe may be worthwhile considering in a Letters to the Editorcolumn: 11) What can be done to attract a greater portion of the student body, and the faculty, to our athletic contests? It seems that we have a small body of individuals who attend most of the events. but we've never had the entire student body. (2) How about holding a general assembly meeting of the student body in connection with a Collegiate Council meeting? Such an assembly could be held once each semester for the same purpose as this column, the discussion of happenings on campus. (3)1 would like to see some forthright discussion on the issue of permitting women to hold the offices of president and vice president of the Collegiate Council. Similarly, why aren't the ladies assigned as strawbosses on Arbor Day? 14) Some perennial favorites such as open dorms, public displays of affection, dress codes, and Cinderella liberty (curfews] are suitable topics as long as we aren't beating a dead horse into the ground. (5) Of course, there are literally hundreds of subjects from the outside world that we could tackle. To my fellow students I say, "Speak out." For that matter, the invitation is proffered to the faculty also. And to the editors I offer congratulations on your courage to run such a column. Richard A. Goodall

This year. instead of "Dear Dana. "the Messenger will feature a "Letters to the Editor" column similar to those found in larger newspapers for letters such as the one printed above. These letters may be written by students, faculty, and any other readers. They may express an opinion or in quire of the editor about some aspect of DMLC. In the latter case the editor will work to find the answer to the question and respond with facts from proper sources. All letters must be signed when sent to the editor; however, the editor will honor the confidentiality of those who wish to have their names withheld from publication.

Stories Not Only for Children

Summer Vacation?!!

by Cathy Starke Staff Wnter

by Trina Bufe Staff Writer

What do a rooster from Tibet, a hare from Japan, and a bear from Scandinavia have in common? Well. make路believe it or not, they all appeared on the DMLC stage

Ah, Summer - hot, sandy beaches, out with friends, sleeping in late, finally time to kick back and relax! What? Isn't that what YOU did for summer? Then what do DMLC students do with their summers?

on Tuesday, September 10, for the first lyceum of the year. These three animals and several others were brought to life by the Commedia Theater Company of Minneapolis in three animal fairy tales

Rudd confessed before the show that the DMLC audience, which did include many of the professors' kids, was the first "more or less' adult audience the show had had. So he began with something a bit more sophisticated, as he put it, the one-man sketch called "Two French Beggars," a Quick humorous bit of movement and expression. The fairy tales began with the story of the Japanese hare who learned not to fake friendship with a crocodile. Both this story and the next story of the Scandinavian bear trying to fish in the winter involved the painful biting off of tails.






princess, who was an accomplished archer, helping an emperor, an interesting twist which shows that nonstereotypical stories about women were around long before the women's rights groups reformed the reading books. The characters were portrayed wholeheartedly, with great vigor, and strongly emphasized movements appropriate to each: the hare was cute and bouncy, the bear stiff and clumsy, and the fox quick and graceful. A few anachronisms were thrown into the old tales, perhaps to make them more realistic forthe children. but in this writer's opinion they detracted from the magic. It was the illusions created on stage - the ice under the bear's paws, the arrows of the princess being shot into the distance, one by one - that made the enchantment of these ancient tales.

Study Tour Invades Europe by Beth Schmick Staff Writer On June 8, 1985, approximately fifty DMLC students left the United States for a forty-one-day tour of Israel and Western Europe. Professors Theodore Hartwig and Arnold Koelpin were in charge of organizing the trip. When asked about the initial planning, Professor Koelpin stated that by leaving out the services of a "middle man," they were able to save a noticeable amount of money. The two professors arranged for traveling expenses, hotel bookings, and meals in direct through usually advance. correspondence. The students were to provide their own clothing. spending money, and, of course, the camera film. The trip consisted of guided tours, sight-seeing, and lectures, both on and off location. However, there was ample time for the travelers to shop and explore the cities and mountains on their own. Several students stated that being able to communicate (or trying to) was the most interesting aspect of the trip. Others found excitement(?) by dodging merchants in the market place or getting lost in the middle of a crowded street in Israel. As the tour progressed, the students gained much knowledge, not only by means of lectures, but also by actually visualizing the historical sights. Not one student whom I interviewed

could pinpoint his favorite city or sight, for they all enjoyed many of the places they visited. Some of the more mentionable sights were Hezekiah's Tunnel in Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea, the Roman Forum, Versailles, the chalets of Switzerland, and the University of Mar burg. Several people agreed that European ice cream was bener than that of the RoundTable or even of Wisconsin! Professor Koelpin was impressed by the extremely nice weather they encountered - forty-one days of sunshine. When asked what they gained from such an experience, the tourists had several answers. One woman felt she could relate better to the Biblical descriptions of Jerusalem, now having seen it herself. Many students agreed that they had broadened their horizons as a result of the impact of cultural differences. Nearly everyone commented that the four-hour final exam was tough, yet the trip was well worth such a consequence. Although life has returned to normal and classes have begun on campus, the European tourists are still vigorous and excited, for nearly every day someone asks them to show their pictures and souvenirs. resulting in hours of memories and recollections of the "experience of a lifetime."

****************************************** Youth Rally '85 Don't Be Shy! Give it a Try!!

Music Fills Campus by Jim Raddatz Staff Writer Every year our campus hosts a variety of WELS activities with the enthusiasm only DMLC can generate. This enthusiasm was clearly evident this past summer when DMLC hosted the annual WELS International Youth Rally-¡85. Nearly four hundred high-school aged youths attended the rally, with a younger than usual crowd attending the Jnstructional get-together. The majority of the students were freshmen and sophomores from the Midwestern United States (with at least one exception of a van of youth from Florida.) One common bond linked all attending together into a close-knit group - faith in their Lord and Savior. The rally's theme was a very appropriate choice for consideration here at DMLC: "Rejoice and BeGlad." The rally was dedicated to provide an opportunity for worship, fellcwsbip. and entertainment by presenting to the "church workers of tomorrow" instruction in our church's musical heritage. Session presenters spoke on topics such as Christian music of all times. current Christian worship, and insights into contemporary Christian and Popular music. Every session was enjoyably presented by the various speakers and was over-flowing with action and excitement. The enthusiasm that was shown by the youth in the instructional sessions was

present also in the other rally activities. A small list of some of these activities would include daily devotions (including a service with Holy Communion,) sports, and workshops on subjects as diverse as banner making, drama, and basketball. As can be imagined by the rally's theme, music played an integral part in the rally's sessions. Two musical high points of the rally were learning new songs from a soon to be published song book introduced by the WELS Committee on Youth Ministry. and listening to a concert performed by the PTO (Pastor Teacher Organization), a group of WELS contemporary Christian musicians. According to Professor Gerald Jacobson, Chairman of the DMLC Rally Organization Committee, the rally was a complete success for everyone involved in any way with the event. This success was clearly evident when "Hello" changed to "Goodbye" and new friends went their own ways. The enthusiasm of everyone involved in the rally makes it certain that the memories of the International Youth Rally-'85 will not soon be forgotten. May the hopes of the rally organizers be carried out by those who read this article as well as those who were present at the rally: "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory" (Revelation 19:7).

Straight from the Coast

Intramural Football Professor john Gronholz is the newest member of the DMLC faculty. He comes to the campus family from Evergreen Lutheran High School in DuPont. Washington, where he was a teacher, Athletic Director, and soccer and basketball coach. A 1968 DMLC graduate and New U1mnative, Professor Gronholz has also taught at Lake Mills, Wisconsin. and Northwestern College in Watertown, Wisconsin. Professor Gronholz is assigned to the physical education department and will serve as head football coach and track coach. The professor is married to the former Memory Miller. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alden Miller of Morristown. South Dakota. She is a 1970 graduate of DMLC. The Gronholzes have four children, Andy. Lisa. Mindy. and Sarah.


by Greg Rush Staff Writer Just as the school year has gotten underway for 1985, so too has the intramural football season. The FL8's, with a 3-0 record and led by captain Joel Radue, look like the team to beat again this year. They have outscored their opponents 136 to 6 so far this season. Q. B. Dudley and the Incompetents, captained by John Koeppen. are hot on FLB's tail with a 2-0 record and they too have allowed opponents a measly 6 points. The Nads, led by Guy Gast, Ashfuf J roo captained by Scott Sontag and Luebbe's Biceps, with captain Phil Stern, all have 1-1 records. Trailing the pack with 0-2 records are the Hooters, captained by J. Thiesfeldt, and the Mad Dawgs, led by Jim Babinec.

A new coach. a new system, and an old nemesis, pre-season injuries, are prominent on the Lancer football scene this year. Coach John (Jack) Gronholz has been well received by his new charges, and they seem to have quickly caught on to the system he has introduced. As for the coach, he is "Excited about the players. The players we have are very coachable, representative of their Savior and DMLC, and have displayedgreatdesireanddedication.AlthoughI can't judge this team against the rest of the conference, I feel we have the potential to be a spoiler because of our veterans and some good freshmen who will contribute much to the team. DMLC will play exciting, well-disciplined football." Like most coaches, Coach Gronholz has set some goals for himself as head football coach. They speak volumes about the man and give hope of a bright future for Lancer football. His goals are: (1) Get as many players involved as possible. (2) Attract as many students to football as possible. (3) Meetthe needs of DMLC and students. (4) Maintain pride. (5) Use football as a means of teaching lessons about winning and losing and competing. so that the players have

something from a Christian perspective that they can share with their own students. (6) Adherence to the idea that if it's worth doing, do it well. "I'd rather be judged for my contributions to the players' future than as just another football coach," says Gronholz. Injuries have already taken their toll of the 1985 edition of Lancer football. Veteran wingback Jeff Zwick has been lost for the season to a recurring knee injury, and defensive tackles Line Hohler and Kevin Keller, both all-conference honorable mentions last year, are out with a broken toe and a broken leg respectively. Line may return to action by mid-season, but Kevin may be lost for the season. Other key players are nursing or have experienced minor injuries during pre-season conditioning, but all or most of them will be ready to play on opening day. The 1985 lancers include: seniors Jeff Dorn, John Melso, Phil Petermann, Ed Noon, Keith Kopczynski, Pete Kuske, Paul Hunter. Paul Herrian, Tom Plath, and Jim Tietz; juniors Gregg Birkholz. Steve Biedenbender, Dan Fenske, Mark Hirsch. Mark McCormick, and Lyle Timm; sophomores Greg West, Dan Johnson, Dave 8iedenbender, Tim Schubkegel. Jeff Schoch, Randy Cox, Jeff Zilisch, Jerry Marowsky, Troy McCargar, and

Mark Eisenmann; freshmen Mark Blauert, Kevin Hoskins, Jon Zink, Mark Stein, Bill Arndt, Dennis Wagner, David Somerville, Jim 8urow, Pete Lemke, Marvin Wittig, and Greg Rush. Steve Bremer is serving as a student coach, and Ken Borchert, a certification student and an experienced football coach, is serving as an assistant coach. Joel Ungemach is assistant team manager and Phil Levitt is team trainer.

kicked off the 1985 campaign with two impressive victories over Dakota State and the College of St. Teresa. The Lancers traveled to Madison, SD, to open the volleyball season and came away with a 3-0 victory, winning by scores of 15-10, 15-3, 15-5. In their home opener, the team had to come from behind to salvage a tough 17-15 decision in the first game against St. Teresa, but they won easily in the final two games. Patience and teamwork were much in evidence during the match with St. Teresa. This is a veteran team featuring four seniors. four juniors, and four sophomores, who have played together for the past three years and have become a solid volleyball team. Despite a lack of height, LaureenJaeger is tallest at 5'11",

they make up for any deficiency in that department with tenacity and teamwork. They will be a team to be reckoned with this year. The 1985 Lancer volleyball team: seniors Betty Carter, Yvonda Beaudin, LaureenJaeger, and Julie Detjen; juniors Sue Carter, Julie Zeamer, Carol Helwig, and Shelly Lindemann; sophomores Becky Vallesky, Lynn Stobb, Heidi Shuster, Carol Reichow; and freshmen Joanie Carter, Lisa Zimmermann, Faith Biebert, Maria Habben, Becky Huhn, and Marty Klockziem. Team managers are Terri Droster and Vicki Humann. Patty Bintz is a student assistant coach.

_.Wiiltlli,Y.illi DMLC's women's cross country team opened its 1985 season with a seventh place finish at the 4th Annual St. Mary's COllege Invitational meet. Facing stiff competition from larger schools in the nine team meet, the Lancers were led by Becki Renner,who finished 27th with her personal best time of 19:44. Other members of the 1985 Lancer cross country team are: Sarah Peter, Kristen Eggen, Tracy Jarvis, Rebecca Maurice, and Mary Hinderer. Annette Hirschmann and Clara Schultz are team managers.

liked me as king:


by Karen Lindeman Feature Editor Long ago in lands far away, there were countries ruled by wonderful kings and queens. I'm sure we have all read about such kingdoms, or perhaps dreamed about them. Today you will be able to read about the kingdoms and countries which Miss Lisa Pickering's 4th grade students "rule". The children of SI. John's Lutheran School in Jefferson, WI are responding to the question: "If you could be a king over your own kingdom, what laws and commands would you make and what would living there be like?" I'd be a nice king. Only Christian people would live in my kingdom. God will be with us. There will be palm trees everywhere. It will be a tropical kingdom. Kristi Hebbe If I was a king I would be fair and kind to the people. These are the laws I would have: 1. All kids go to school 2. Ail people 10-20 9(1 tv colieye 3. I would have church two times a week 4. I would give money to the poor 5. I would help old people Neil Dempsey If I was a queen I wouldn't have money of taxes. I would let everybody have horses. Anyone who hurt an animal or a person would be put in prison for 50 years. Everyone had to go to church and OBEY whatever the pastor said. Kids would only have to go to school4 months a year and 4 hours a day. Wendy L. Wagner

It would be like a heaven before heaven, full of wonderful things that have never been seen before. The animals would multiply so quickly that some of them would flee from my kingdom. Everyone is dressed in the finest clothing, eats only the finest food and live in the finest homes. There is a tree that no one can eat from. and if anybody eats from it they would be sent out of my kingdom. Kieth Alan Johnson If I were a king. these would be my laws: 1. No work had to be done 2. You would have no taxes 3. Everybody had everything they wanted and needed Holly Brawders I would help the people that don't believe in God by taking them to church.

particular aspect of school in the past years. One particular act was dedicated to the student teachers that have been teaching at St. Paul's for many years. This particular act was taken from the 1940'5 which' showed a student teacher observing the class in a group of about 10 other student teachers. This was one complete day.• The following day the student teachers would return for their one day teaching experience. Each teacher would be' given one subject that they must present for the designated time. The student teacher was then done w'ith his "on the job training" and was sent back to DMLC for more schooling. . That is quite the change from the present system. It is unique to see the changes alone between' DMLC in the past and present with St. Paul's School. On Saturday.

~t. Paul's School Celebrates Centennial ~.






by Cynthia Hahn News Editor "Christian Education·from ,Gllneration to Generation" was the theme for the Centennial celebration of St. Paul's School. This b;'rthday celebration recognized the 100 years that St. Paul'sSchool has been in existence. teaching the younger generation the Word ofGod, St. Paul's School opened in 1885 in a one room classroom with a mere 75 students. The. first teacher. Mr. Abele. taught for one year without speaking any English. so the first DMlC student helped Mr. Abele in the English department. Mr. Abele teaching one half of the' day and Mr. Freund teaching the other half day. The first school called "die grosse Schule" was formerly the old church and parsonage; "Die kleine Schuls," the second school was built in 1886. Finally after a few years of growing. the first twostory brick school building was built in 1900. With a growing congregation and number .of students. the school was remodeled and enlarged in 1921. After a long road of struggles the congregation was again faced with the problem of lack of room for students. In"1959 St. Paul's congregation bought the "Annex" (formerly a bowling' alley) which was adjacent to the school property from the Concordia Club and remodeled it. which made accomodations for four more class-

.~ " <

rooms and ateachers' lounge. : In 1970.· the school faced a large. difficult problem: the over-crowding of the school. At this time the enrollment had reached its peak of 464 students which initiated the bid for a larger. more developed school. This dream became a reality on September 26.1971. when the school was dedicated to the lord's service. The present school. which is located on South Payne Street. was completed at a cost of $764.055.00. Today St. Paul's Memorial School stands as a testimony of the past 100 years of God's grace and blessing. It has showered that blessing upon the congregation by moving the members to take heed to feed the lambs and sheep of His flock and has also provided the congregation with a century of grace. To begin this joyous celebration of 100 years of teaching God's Word. St. Paul's entered a float in the July 21 Heritage Festival Par.ade. After many hours of planning. rehearsing. and anticipation the festivities finally officially began with. the Centennial Pageant performed on October 2 at 7:30 p.rn, and again October 5 at 4:00 p.m. Written by Grace Bartel. the pageant included six acts. each featuring a different teacher and his classroom during the past 100 years. The pageant included all of the presentlyenrolled students portraying some

different stages in the life of a member of God's church including baptism. confirmation, communion. marriage. prayer. and everlasting life. Eachsection was highlighted by a Scripture reading and a song sung either by the congrega· tion or one of the choirs from 51. Paul's church. St. John's church. 51. Paul's children's choir. or the DMLC College Choir. This service was a very unique and fitting way to close the Centennial observance of 51. Paul's school. • Now. after the weekend of celebration. the school will once again go on its way preparing the young in the Word of God. and through this they will see how God has so richly blessed their lives in giving them the opportunity to hear and learn of Christ and all He has done for us. As the students. parents. teachers and others go on. they will always be able to remember the way Christian education affects our lives and how. through the passing of the

From the Editors

Counting time is not as important

A Parting Word: Communication' by Jane Zimmerman Co- Editor "Oh, boy! This is my lasteditorial everforthe Messenger. What can I write to make the last one special?" These were the thoughts that crossed my mind as I was trying to think of a subject for this issue. Since I plan to graduate from DMLCin December and I will be student·teaching while the next two issues of this paper are put together, it really is time to say goodbye to the Messenger. This is not an easy thing to do, since I've been an editor since my first week here at seems sometimes like it was a long time ago when I first went into the Messenger room to work on a-ssigning articles. Miriam Zimmermann (no relation) was editor-in-chief then, and there was a notice on the bulletin board above the desk: "This is the home of Miriam Zimmermann. If she is not here, you may try her second home, her room in Centennial Hall." I thought at the time that Miriam must have been exaggerating a bit about how much time she spent in the Messenger room, but I later realized she wasn't. I guess I've spent more time in that room than anywhere _else on campus. I could spend the remainder of this column reminiscing about DMLC and the Messenger, but I'm not one so much to dwell on the past; I'd rather look to the future. With an eye to that f~ture, all I can do is offer to my fellow students something which I have learned throughout my time here at DMLC and my work on the Messenger: a lesson in the importance of communication. I talked about this in last month's editorial, entitled, "Students, ExpressYour Views." We all need to let our feelings be heard - not only in such bold ways as through articles in the Messenger and proposals to the Collegiate Council, but also in quieter ways, among ourselves, friends and relatives. As the year goes on and roommates and friends begin to wearon each others' nerves, talk it out before, because of your anger, you give up that special friendship! Likewise, don't be shy about telling someone how special they are to you; they ne~d to hear that, too! Don't be afraid to share your problems with friends, relatives, faculty members, your pastor, and (later on) the principal of your school, either. Most of all, "when your knees are shaking, kneel on them." Our most faithful Friend is. always ready to .listen, We are told often that as teachers )/'Ie must practice what we teach, so i.f I advise openness-t-il'so~nlyright that I displays little of that right now. Thlspaperwon't'allow the space to list all the friends and faculty members who have supported me here at DMLC, but I want all of you to know that I've appreciated that support very much and will never forget you. Likewise I have appreciated.the efforts of each and every Messenger staff member over the past few years. I feel you have done well in your work with this paper, and I am confident that you wil1~enjoymore success under your new editor, Patti Zahn.. during the remainder of this year. God's blessings to you all.

Two Friends I have two friends who walk with me And we are such good company; I hold fast to the arm of each; Find rosy dreams within my reach. One counts the treasures I have in store The other's intent on finding more ... And I am busy as I can be Storing them all in my treasury. So, no matter how common my lot may be, I have two friends who walk with me. The Future, to showme the unknown way, And the Past to hold fast to the end of my day!

Students React: Light Comes

Initiation by Patty Hennig Staff Writer 8eanies Name Tags ... Marching ... Singing Drill Sergeants ... Fear? ... Laughter Tradition Christian Fellowship DMLC Fun JerkJumpsl This month's pollan initiation [responded to by 15% of the student body) had some very positive answers along with a few suggestions for future years. The first question asked was what the purpose' of initiation was. The freshmen had two main ideas: forty-one percent felt that it is all done in fun to welcome the freshmen and forty-one percent felt it was to humiliate the freshmen. The sophomores need someone to get back at for last year's events. On the other hand, seventy-five percent of the combined sophomore, junior, and senior classes felt it was to welcome the freshmen and get to know them. Initiation also helps the freshmen get to know the upperclassmen and teet part of the DMLC family. The second question involved the benefits for upperclassmen and then for freshmen. The greatest benefit (decided by 29% of the freshmen) was that the sophomores g'et to "be in charge" and "boss" the freshmen around. Then there was a tie at 18% saying that the benefits were to get'to know the freshmen and to laugh. The 'uppercl~ssmen felt, their greiltest benefit was getting to know the fresh":'en [sophomcres 78%, juniors 74%, seniors 33%). The' benefits fa, ~he freshmen are class unity and getting t~ know the upperclassmen decided by a combined perceritage of fifty-six for all classes. 'The_next question asked was. for the upperclassmen. "What interesting things happened Iastvear that' you feei should be repeated in years to comer Singil19 and marchingwere high on th~.Iis1 ~i!h: the muscle-man contest; beanie:s" nametags not far behind, Some of the, other events mentioned were parades, role reversal. guys picking girls up and escorting them to evening chapel; and half-shaved mustaches! We then asked if initiation helped the freshmen get involved in college life. Fifty percent of the freshman said no and thirty-six 'percent said yes. A combined percentaqe of fifty-nine upperclassmen responded positively and thirty-two percent negatively. Some sophomores believed the mixer was a good idea, Other -upperclassmen feel that involvement will occur even without initiation. The final question was "should initiation continue?" A combined percentage of '64 agreed that initiation should continue while 29% disagreed. Some put the condition on it saying "as long as it doesn't get out of hand." It has to be in a "controlled, Christian" atmosphere. As long as freshmen start initiation


with a good attitude and make the best of it, they will have fun. As one student stated, "Initiation is as fun as you make it." If you make the best of initiation, it will be a life-long memory that you will laugh at in years to come.

From Darkness by Cathy Starke Staff Writer "It's Reformation, not Halloween." We Lutherans hear this statement or some variation on the idea every year as October 31 st draws near. The implication is that good Lutherans should forget all about Halloween and think only about the work Of Luther on the anniversary of this historic day.. But when we think about Reformation, .it is good for us to remember Halloween, too.

The word "Halloween" comes from the name, "All Hallow's Eve" which was given'to October 31 st, the day before the 'Catholic feast of All Saint's. The German people of Luther's time were as intensely interestedin the saints as any people at any time had ever b'een. They relied on the merits of the saints and their relics to get them into heaven in a sort of "Trick or Treat" system: if we give something good to God, they thought, He will not turn on

us as an avenging Judge and torture us in twentieth centuries.

The' light of the truth had begun to dawn. It began rather feebly, however. This day was probably more of a "Halloween" than a "Reformation" for Luther. He had this to say about his famous Ninety-Five Theses: "I allow them to stand, that by them it may appear how weak I was, and in what a fluctuating state of mindwhen I began this-business. I was then a monk and a mad Papist, and instruments, including a newly acquired so submersed in the dogmas of the Pope marimba.

One of these varieties was presented by the Concert Band featuring Hawley Ades' "Twentiana" consisting of popular songs from the 1920's like "I'm looking over a Four Leaf Clover", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "Tea for Two", and "Hallelujah". The Wind Ensemble also put through a very impressive variety including "Rushmore" by Alfred Reed and "Variations on a Korean Folk Song," by John Barnes Chance. Throughout the concert the bands featured a large array of percussion

Students Learn from Special Day by Pete Schaewe Staff Writer No classes were



September 17, but a good deal of learning took place anyway. This special Tuesday was Hispanic Mission Day aj DMLC. and students and faculty learned much about the Hispanic people, their culture, and our attempts to share the Gospel with them. The day began wjth a forceful presentation by Pastor Robert Sprain: who has served as a missionary to both Puerto Rico and Columbia and is now working with th'e Hispanic people' in Madison, Wisconsin. His lecture, entitled "Hispanics in American Culture," opened eyes to some startling facts: that by the year 2000 Hispanics will be the largest

single ethnic group,in our nation; that by the year 2025 it is estimated that white people of Germanic background will be a minority; and that although eighiy percent of all Hispanics are Catholic, few go to church. Pastor Sprain used these , statistics to :sli~w the' grest that our Synod has to spread tile Gospel. Though problems of language, social problems. and religious differences do ,exist. we we~e encouraged .to rise to the occasion rather than shrinking from the challenge placed before us. The remainder of the morning was 'devoted 'to two speakers who described


their roles in Hispanic mission work. The first was Pastor John Connell. a missionary in Medellin. Columbia, South America. He related how work was begun

in Columbia eleven years ago and how this work has progressed. and told about the Columbian national pastor and how the missionary proqram 'plans to expand to Brazil. All this has come about in spite of the missionaries' main problem being ;~';rn~d'as'A;';e~ri:iin Protestants. PastorThomas Hornerwas next. teJling a similar story about the mission work in Guyama, Puerto Rico, The Catholics and other Protestant groups present problems to the Lutheran missionaries in this American territory. The Catholics condemn anyone who isn't Catholic. and the Lutherans are often unfairly lumped with other church bodies on the island. But the three missionaries rejoice in their slow, steady growth. They hope for further growth


application of Scripture and for a national self-supporting church body for the 'Puerto Ricans. The afternoon sessions were broken down ahd groups moved between three different presentations, Mrs, Homer the Mrs. Connell led one discussion and got very personal about both the positive and negative aspects of being missionaries' wives. Such topics as their daily schedules, holidays, schooling for the children, shopping and lack of conveniences were discussed. (There are no chocolate chips, walnuts, or peanut butter. available in Columbia!) . Mr, Paul Bases, a teacher at St. Peters in Milwaukee, spoke informally on how his interest in Spanish and the Hispanic culture has had a major affect on his life and his career. He also gave many interesiing and helpful hints to future teachers who may have to run a bilingual classroom. Mr. Tomas Gomez, a Hispanic and a man who has done work in reaching out to other Hispanics, gave insight into the Hispanic culture by discussing their behaviors, attitudes and' politics. His "Chicano IQ Test," jokes. and other cultural awareness exercises opened manyeyes. Following these presentations, the groups met jointly in the auditorium for questions and the conclusion of the lectures. But the day didn't end at this point.

DEC Can Help by James Raddatz Staff Writer After nearly seven years of discussions. preparations. and prayers, last year saw the opening of the Developmental Education Center on our campus. The DEC is located in room 136 of the Academic Center and is open for use !:ly any DMLCstudent. The DECis the newest Student Service program. It specializes in helping students improve on their basicskills use through individual studies. This type of program had been discussed as early as 1978 by members of our English department. They wanted to provide learning and practice opportunities for students who had already mastered basic writing and reading skills. Their hopes came true last year when the DEC project was implemented. One major change that occurred in the seven years of finalization was that the subject matter was broadened to - cover every major subject. not only English skills, Fora program of this nature to work it is necessary for the student to take the first

initiative and ask for the help, which the DEC is only too willing to give. This voluntary program is designed to instruct the student at the necessary pace to help him overcome any lesser-developed skill.

instruction periods where they can work individually under the guidance of Professor Koestler to improve the desired

Last year over fourteen percent of the student body participated in the program, with students from every class classification and grade-point average seeking the help that is so readily available in the DEC room. Students can make use of the DEC

this is clearly evident: The teachers who must teach basic skills in any subject must master those skills ifthey wish to be successful. It is DMLC's hope that any student who believes that he can in some way improve his knowledge on any of the above-mentioned (or other) skills will make use of the valuable resource we have in the Developmental Education

computer and printer, cassette player, and numerous educational cassettes that cover every class subject. This year Professor Arlen Koestler. director of the DEC, hopes the program will be even more successful than it was last year, and with one year's experience in the DEC he is very enthusiastic about having another successful year. Professor Koestler emphasized the need for the student to contact him if the student wishes to improve' such basic skills as reading. music. writing papers, mathematic computing. and grammar study, Students can set up weekly

Ladies Show They Care by Annmarie Krueger Staff Writer Wednesday, October 9. was a special day on the DMLC campus - the time for the annual visit of DMLC's Ladies'

Auxiliary. Unfortunately. even after such a visit not all students, understand much about this group. but the Ladies' Auxiliary is an organization that we, students should all know about because it exists for us. Ladies' Auxiliary is made up of about 350 women that put toqethertheir time. talents and money to make our life on campus more comfortable and a little easier. Some of the gifts given by the Ladies' Auxiliary in the past include the laminator in the library. the furnishings in the children's literature room, films for the Western Civilization classes. the carpeting in the men's dorm. and the drapes in the game room and music hall. The drapes in the women's dorms were also given by the Ladies' Auxiliary and took a¡Iot of time and effort. So the next time you find yourself taking things like carpeting and drapes for granted. think about the gifts given by the Ladies' Auxiliary, Let's be thankful that they care enough about us to do the things they do.

Nobel Conference:



and Faculty React

by Professors J. Micheel and J., Paulsen On October 1 and 2, 1985, a delegation from Dr. Martin Luther College consisting of four seniors - Gina' Hoerning, Carol Mann, Keith Kopczynski, and Kenneth White and Professors John Micheel and John Paulsen attended Nobel Conference XXI at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. The theme of the conference was "The Impact of Science on Society". The Nobel Conference attracted students and faculty from 72 colleges and 147 high schools. This is the only ongoing, formal program in the world, outside of Sweden and Norway where the actual prizes are awarded, to have the official authorization of the

"seeing" science and technology from the point of view that these scientists presented was a priceless experience. Too often we condemn science in general as "evil", antiChristian, and non路feeling, but most of these speakers seemed very concerned about the effects that science had. has. and will continue to have on society," 'Both the faculty members and the students felt that the conference was very worthwhile .and continued participation is recommended. The theme was certainly relevant to todav's society.

Nobel Foundauon. The five speakers for the conference were: 1. Dr. Salvador Luria. 1969 Nobel Priie winner in medicine for-his work in molecular biology, now Director of the Center for Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; . 2. Dr. Daniel Kevles, Professor of History at the California Institute of Technology, specializing in the history of science and technology; 3. Dr. Winston 8rill. Vice Presid,,",t of Research and Development for A.;lracetus, ,a high路tech agriculture specialtv firm located in Middleton, Wisconsin. specializing in genetic engineering; 4. Dr. Merritt Roe Smith, Professor of the' History of Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, author of th~ prize-winning book - Harpers Ferry Armory and the New Technology: The Challenge Of Change (1977); 5. Dr. J. Robert Nelson, Director of the Institute of Religion at the Texas Medical Center and editor-at-Iarge of The Christian Century. Some thoughts on each of the papers: 1. Dr. Luria's paper, "The Single Artificer", was aimed at showing that the scientist, not science, is responsible to society. Science' creates knowledge which can be translated into technology. The scientist must take responsibility for what he develops, but "science" doesn't provide him with rules. Society must provide the rules. 2. Dr. Kevles, in his paper, "Genetic Progress and Religious Authority: Historical Reflections", discussed the history of eugenics, th'; s~ience of improving ih~ h'uman race through the careful selection of parents. 3. Dr. Brill delivered an optimistic paper, ','The Impact of Biotechnology and the Future of Agricufture". 'H~ believes tti~t through genetic engineering', r'ep'lacing certain genes in the.DNAi new, disease路res;stantand-more-productive 'straj'ns-ofvarlous crops can be developed. He was not concerned that the newly developed strain could turn out to be an environmental threat. 4. Dr. Smith's'peper "On Technology and Progreis: Perspective on the American Experience", was a historical look at technology and progress in this country from the time of Thomas Jefferson. According to Smith, Jefferson espoused an agrarian democracy and believed that science and technology were.a meanstoward progress but there had to be a proper balance between the moral, the spiritual and the material. Today the emphasis is on the material rather than on the moral and the spiritual. 5. Dr,Nelson's paper, "Mechanistic Mischief and Dualistic Dangers in a Scientific Society", dealt with mechanistic materialism - which is regarding man and his activities as objects and the rnacharucal treatment that these "objects" receive - and the dualistic nature of man - body and soul. Nelson discussed test tube babies, surrogate mothers. and artificial insemination but from the sense that there is also the spiritual nature of man. which is usually ignored in our approach to these and other technological advancements. Some student reactions to the conference: Carol Mann: "I felt the experience o.tattending this conference was beneficial. I am happy I was chosen. This type of conference helps a person to remember that there are people in this world that do not believe in God as we do and their work sometimes reflects that. I have gained an appreciation for. these professionals that were in attendance, but-most of all, I'm thankful for the experience." Ken White: "The topics were interesting - something that affects all of us: genetic engineering, biotechnology and agriculture, technology and progress in America, and materialistic and dualistic views. These speeches certainly gave me more to think about on some very controversial issues. It is at times like these that we need to look at what God says in the Bible, and then carry out His will." . Keith Kopczynski: "With our limited DMLCscience background, it was impossible to digest all of the material presented at the conference. What struck me most however, was the general lack of consideration of God and Scripture in relation to science. Our science courses, as well as all other courses at DMLC, are continually incorporating God's Word into their content. But as we listened to these speakers, who spoke of God merely as a social idea of some people, we were thankful forthe true knowledge of God which we have received through the Holy Spirit." Gina Hoerning: "I think it's vital to a future Christian educator to remember that we, and the children we'll be teaching,live in the world even though we are notofthe world. The issues discussed - genetics, biotechnology, historical perspectives on the impact of technology, the moralistic aspects of euge~ics - are pertinent today and also very controversial. It was fascinating - and often frustrating - to be a passive Christian listener in a forum where only one speaker acknowledge the existence of God. However,

VOLLEYBALL One of the brightest spots in DMLC athletics this fall has been the success of the volleyball team, The Lady Lancers are now 10·2 overall. and B·l in conference. with just six matches remaining. For the past three years Coach Buck has brought

average. Paul has a 4.0 average on 76 carries for 316 yards. Phil is also the scoring leader with four touchdowns to his credit. Tim Schubkegel is the top receiver with eighteen receptions for 257 yards and one touchdown. Gregg Birkholz is not far behind with twelve passes for 141 yards and three touch-

his charges along slowly. and now we are witnessing the fruition of his efforts. All of the young ladies on the team play with skill. a keen sense of purpose. and a selfassuredness that now permits them to play with anybody. whereas in the past this was .not always so. On October lB. St. Scholastica. the only team in conference to have defeated the Lancers. will be here for a match, I know that many of you will be going to Watertown for the football game there. but to those of you who will be remaining in New Ulm that weekend. I strongly encourage you to come to the match and help cheer our Lancers, FOOTBALL Another bright spot in DMLC athletics is the football team. Ordinarily. when a team gets a new coach, fortunes take a downward turn as the team adjusts to the new coach. but that hasn't been the case with the 1985 Lancers. First of all. the seniors have dedicated themselves to having the best possible-season. and not to be outdone. the underclassmen have committed themselves' to the same goaL But more than that. they have quickly accepted and learned the new system installed by Coach Gronholz, and thev.are inspired by his quiet professionalism and organization. In particular, one aspect of his new program has paid early dividends, That's something called motivational training. The establishment of individual goals as well as team goals for each game has contributed much to the team's success this season. On the field quarterback Tom Plath is the passing leader, having completed 43 of 92 passes for 483 yards' and four touchdowns. Phil Petermann and Paul Hunter are the leading runners with

downs, As with any team, defense is an important part of the game, and this year's edition of Lancer football is currently ranked number one in the conference. Mark McCormick is the leader in solo tackles and assists with twelve solos and sixty assists. Mark also has two pass interceptions and two fumble recoveries to his credit. Randy Cox is next in tackles and assists with eleven and forty-five respectively. John Melso and Skip Noon also have two interceptions. Steve Biedenbender and Linc Hohler are the sack leaders with two and one and a half sacks respectively. The defensive unit has made most of its effort by contributing three touchdowns to the Lancers' scoring total. CROSS·COUNTRY 'Pacing -sorneistiff- .ccmpetition ' from larger schools in a number of the meets in which theY'lialii,competecf. 'the Lancer harriers' have managed respectable showings in each meet. Becky Henner continues to be the top runner, but Mary Hinderer may have turned in' the best pe-rformance of the season when she trimmed nearly three minutes off of her best time. The Lancers will host the DMLC Invitational on October 19. GOLF At this writing. the Lancer golf team has a 2·2 dual meet record, The golfers will host the Upper Midwest Collegiate Conference tournament here on the twelfth of OCtober. This year's team members include: Dave Koepsell, Dan and Pete Markgraf, Mike Vatthauer .: Steve 'Jensen, Karl Bauer, Dave Kolander, John Meyer. Scott Sonntag, Amy Gronholz, and Carla Free.

Beware of Winter Driving!


byKaren Lindeman Feature Editor .Christian education. what a blessing it is to usl Last year OMLC celebrated 100 years of grace as a teacher training, institution. and this year St. Paul's Lutheran School celebrates 100 years of grace also. In this issue we look back to one of our first "Glimpses' columns. which had several essays written by past students of St. Paul's Lutheran School for their 19B1 Mission Fair. They are all entitled "What is the Value of Christian Education to Me?" These short essays should call attention to the seriousness and importance of our future roles as, educators in the schools of our churches. This is truly what .it is all about: Some people do not have any churches or pastors and teachers. or even the Bib'le that can give them Christian education. ' But we do. That's why we should thank God forevermore for giving us the freedom to have Christian education through our schools and churches.

Now that we have it. we should give to , missions and pray for God's blessing for those who can go and teach and preach to the unfortunate. "Go ye and teach all nations ..... Thai's what Jesus said to us and everyone. -

Seniors To


Experience October 31 st is a date which has been permanently etched into the mind of ChristIanity. It is the date on which a miner's son turned monk decided to publicly question "The Church" of his day. The grace of God was being withheld from people and had been replaced by an intricate system of seven sacraments which presented God as an angry judge who needed to be appeased. Fear. uncertainty. gloom and superstition had taken the place of the fruits of the Spirit in the hearts of people. Priests. bishops. cardinals and popes lived in splenc!id'r< luxury while their parishoners often had to wonder where their next meal would come from. Cries of outrage had been raised before by the likes of Wyclif and Hus. but these cries were quickly terminated by martyrdom. This was not to be the case with the son of Hans and Margarethe Luther who was born on November 10. 1483 in the little town of Eisleben. Germany. It would appear that father. Hans. recognized or at least dreamed of the future greatness of his son. Martin. The finest education available in all Germany was made available to young Martin by his hardworking father. A bachelors degree althe age of nineteen. a masters degree at the age of twenty-one and then it was on to law school at the University of Erfurt. The practice of law was not. however. the destiny of Martin Luther. After s~veral life-threatening experiences. Martin decided to become a monk.

"What must I do to be saved?" was a constant. painfully real question which" plagued him and drove him to despair. In the midst of this despair. the Word of God. which had' become Martin's love and livelihood. brought him 'the answer: "The righteous will live by faith." Spurred on by the rediscovery of the grace of God.: Martin's life was to be dramatically changed. First. the nailing of the 95

theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on October 31. 1517. and then the Diet of Worms in 1521 when he was declared a heretic after refusing to take back his writings. Martin's life was changed but so. too. was the life of the Church. Martin Luther truly was a gift of God. Taken from the October 26. 1985. church bulletin of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church.

to follow. The Chanhassen is a dinner theater located just outside the Twin Cities. Guests have their choice of dining on five different menu entrees cooked to perfection as they view a choice of four musical productions. On stage this fall are a combination of laughter, love, excitement. and energy. "I Dol I Dol" is celebrating its 15th year of success and the ever-applauded "West Side Story" fills the audience with vivacious enthusiasm. "Mass Appeal" is going strong after two years. making it the second longest run in the theater's history. The new kid on the block is a comedy called "The Foreigner." It is a zany adventure about an Englishman's visit to a fishing lodge in Georgia. So as December 5th marches closer and closer. the seniors look forward to a night of culture. a night of NO HOMEWORK, a night of intrigue. a night to â&#x20AC;˘ experience the Chanhassen.

National Competition for Bicentennial of the Constitution

The 200th anniversary of the Constitution offers a singular occasion for the National Endowment for the Humanities to encourage renewed scholarly interest in and public reflection on the history. principles. and foundations of constitutional government. To commemorate that occasion. the Endowment is pleased 'to announce a special nationwide competition for high school and college students to conduct research and writing projects on the U.S. Constitution. The deadline for the special competition is December 5. 1985. Awards will be announced in March 1986. Proposals are expected to meet the, guidelines of the' Vounger Scholars program except that they should fall within one of the following areas of constitutional study. 1. The philosophical. historical. jurisprudential. political or literary origins of the Constitution. Example: A study traces the evolution of James Madison's thoughts on democratic government, focusing on his reflections during the "Critical Period" before the Constitutional Convention. his speeches and notes at the Convention, and his essays and speeches in favor of ratification of the Constitution. 2. The substantive intent, meaning and history of one or more of the principles or provisions of the Constitution. Example: After making a careful study of the argument for separation of church and

state in John Locke's Letter Concerning Toleration. a college student traces the similarities between Locke's argument, and the case for separation made by proponents of the First Amendment. 3. The relation of the structure of the Constitution to American political. social or intellectual culture. Example: A study is made of the argument in The Federalist that the proposed U.S. Senate was to be "the sheet anchor" of the republic. The study will focus on the original intention of the framers about this institution and will also consider to what extent their expectations for American democracy have been realized. 4. The connection between selfgovernment and the purposes of human life. Example: A study is made of the debate between the Federalist and the AntiFederalist writers over the role and importance of civic virtue for the wellbeing of the American republic, Applicants are expected to discuss the way in which their projects engage one of the above four areas of emphesis.

National Tournament Even as we write this. column. the DMLC Lancer Volleyball team is enroute to St. Louis. MO. and the National Little College Volleyball tourney, The L~dy Lancers capped a strong 14-4 season by capturing the NLCAA Northern District tournament championship, thereby earning a berth in the national tournament, Even though the Lancers will face an old nemesis, St. Scholastica, one of, three teams to defeat the Lancers in regular season play, Coach Buck and the players are confident that they can do well in the tournament. One reason for Coach Buck's enthusiasm is the team's balance. Although Sue Carter has been at or near the top in all offensive categories, she has had lots of help from the rest of the team. Sue leads the team in serving and hiiting路 percentage, ace blocks, and is second in ace serves and attacking effici~w:tcy.~arol Helwig leads the team in ace spikes. But Coach Buck credits the outstanding d..r.m..ive 路play路of vvonca Beaudir{ and" BettY Carter for helping the Lancers to get where they are. Beaudin 'leads in defensive saves, and Carter is second. Juli,e Detjen and .Shelly Lindemann are the top setters on the team. Freshman Becky Huhn also has turned in a superlative job in filling in forthe injured Laureen Jaeger. No team can go far without a strong bench, and the able play of the misses Julie Zeamer, Maria Habben, Lynn Stobbs, Becky Vallesky, Heidi Shuster, and Carol Reichow, has contributed to a fine season. Lancer Title Bid Falls Short A first ever football championship in the Upper Midwest Collegiate Conference slipped through DMLC's grasp on Saturday, October 26th, as Mount Senario Co:lege used a powerful rushing attack and tough defense to subdue the Lancers, That notwithstanding, the Lancers are assured of finishing no less than second in the conference, they will

have gained a second consecutive winning season, and will have attained the winningest record in its football history, A number of factors have contributed to the team's banner year. Obviously the skill and play of the players had much to do with it. Their dedication and a willingness to accept a new coach and a new system were also factors. We like路 to think that the new motivational training program which Coach Gronholz introduced this year also had somewhat to do with a winning season, All of these things in combination helped to achieve

success. With one game 'remaining, team leaders are: Tom Plath, who has hit B9 of 176 passes for 979 yards; Paul Hunter, who has rushed 144 times for 524 yards, and Tim Schubkegel is the top pass catcher with 36' for ' 467' yards. Defensively, Randy Cox leads in tackles with 24 solos and 77 assists, Mark McCormick"is close behind 'with '-9 an-d' 79. Randy also leads in in'terceptions with 4. Several players 'are credited with two or more quarterback sacks. Basketball Teams Start Practice The men and women's basketball teams have held organizational meetings and regular practice got underway starting on November 4. The men's team has thirty candidates vying for a position on: the .the team, while the women's team has twenty-five hopefuls. Both coach Buck and' coach Leopold will have the unenviable task of trimming their 'rosters, something that they don't often have to db, Both teams will open their seasons with the annual alumni games on November 16th.

by LuAnn Vatthauer Feature Editor This month's poll was dealing with the theme "Are DMLC students too passive?" This poll was far ahead of the first two polls in the response category with 132 or 26% responding. The first question was concerned with how often students feel they doubt what a professor says in class. Five percent responded with never doubting a professor. while 37% said seldom and 42% said occasionally. The next question was on how frequent students think they actually challenge a professor. 21 % said never, while 39% and 33% responded with seldom and occasionally, respectively. The response for question three was spread fairly evenly between all five ofthe choices. The question was "How frequently do you find yourself reluctant to express negative feelings toward a school policy to the college administration?" The range was between 16% (never) to 27% (often). Next, students were asked if they felt the


evalua_tol"lJ' comment,


DMLC students being unusually passive was a compliment or a negative comment. MorJ than half thought that it was negative. Finally; the students Were asked why they were reluctant to state their views. One of the answers to this question was fear of getting laughed at by their cl~ssmates. Another response was that they respect the professors. One of the most popular replies was that students feel that even if they state their opinions, things won't be changed. The other most popular reply occurred mostly in the junior class. This response was the fact that if students become too outspoken. they will not get calls. We should remember that it is good to speak up, but only when it is proper.

I think birds go in the woods, because they can't find food under the snow or they' II die. Only some birds go south. , ,Edc Bendey '7 Grade 1 The birds fly to Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and Korea. The reason why go is because they need food and God made them that way. Leigh Gibson - Grade 1 They go in the trees, so they can get food. get their nest ready, and stay warm. Andy Frinkle - Grade 1 They fly to Mexico because they are hungry. Elizabeth Prinsky - Grade 1 They fly to Florida becausa it is warm there.


Scott Studer - Grade 1 They go where it is sunny because they don't like it when it is so cold. Ryan Chase - Grade


They go to where there is beaches, so they can stay warm. They can eat good food. 8ecause they will turn in to ice and if they do not get cold they will not turn to ice. Aaron Brown - Grade 2

A correction is noted for the October issue of the Messenger. The front page story covering St. Paul's Centennial celebration incorrectly reported that in the 1940's there were up to ten student teachers in a room at one time. This should have read that this occurred in the 1910's to early 20·s. By the 1940's the student teachers would teach all classes and would not include 10 teachers per room, but rather one or two. as it was indicated in the pageant. The Messenger apologizes for this error.

December: The Fastest Month in the Midwest by Patti Zebn Co-Editor "Tis the season to go crazy ... fa la la la la, la la la la." I caught myself humming a modern version of that old familiar Christmas tune on my way back to school after Thanksgiving break. How come the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas always seem to fly right by? Could it possiblv be the fact that three months' worth of activity is crammed into three weeks of school? J mean, let's look atthe life of a "typical" DMLC student in the month of December. Supposing that student had the time to write a diary,

With a calendar as busy is this one, no wonder so many people tend to overlook, if not forget. the true meaning of Christmas. Do DMLC students become too busy with writing papers and reports, shopping. studying for tests and exams, practicing for choir/band. attending school functions and sporting events, and preparing to go home. that they cannot find time to celebrate Christmas and its true meaning? Are we celebrating the end of the semester instead of the birth of Christ? Take a look at your calendar and see what you have been celebrating in the month of December.

Helena, on the other hand, does love Demetrius and tries to force him to reciprocate, Meanwhile, Oberon, king of the fairies, magically forces his queen, Titania, to give up a "changeling" boy she has adopted. Aside from the story, the idea of the" power struggle was also brought out in many other aspects of the drama, Actions were forceful and abrupt. The fairies didn't flutter about lightly; they did their share of stomping, The application of the love potion tothe eyes was especially forceful, almost torturous. Costuming was dramatically forceful. There were no frills, Every costume was either white, black, red, or, in the case of the lower class mechanicals, a washedout gray, And who would expect to see a fairy dressed like a teenage member of a street gang?

Students React: The Joy of Christmas by Patty Hennig Staff Writer This month's poll on Christmas was answered by ten percent of the student body. It was . concerning secular Christmas activities in a Christian atmosphere. The first question asked whether traditions like Santa Claus. Christmas trees. and presents belonged in a Christian atmosphere. Seventy-six percent felt that they do belong. Gifts show the principle of giving out of love. The traditions put festivity in the air and do not detract from the true meaning of Christmas if they are'taught to be 'secular, Seven percent said they do not belong and. surprisingly, seventeen percent voiced an opinion against Santa Claus. They felt Santa detracted from Christ's birth. The second question \)vas"Do you feel that these traditions should be emphasized less in Christian Day Schools?" The response to this' question was almost

equal: 57% said yes. 43% said no. One comment stated that t.heydid not have to be emphasized less, just make sure it is taught correctly as secular. "Is the true Christmas story put in second place to Santa Claus?If so, where do you feel this occurs most often?" Sixtyone percent 'answered yes to this question and thirty-nine no. They felt it occurred most in shopping malls and public decorations. The final question asked what could be done to emphasize the true Christmas story while still keeping these traditions. The answers varied quite a bit. Some felt that religious carols could be taught or have "Baby Jesus" bring children their gifts instead of "Santa Claus." Teach the true story of Christmas a,smost important .and emphasize it most. We hope everyone has a Merry Christmasl

The Mystery Prof for October was none other than Coach Leopold. (Remember that the Mystery Profs that we have featured in the Messenger are not only the profs with that title. but anyone who teaches or instructs us in and on our campus.)

hearing something soon. In addition to Wagner, Clowns At Heart is a main project for secretary Su~ Petermann. The club boasts 30 members in ali, with 15 actively participating. According to Wagner, the purpose of the club is to learn about the art of clowning, such as juggling, makeup

techniques, and costume design. Past appearances for the group include marching the Homecoming parade, and performing to a delighted 'audience at Highland Manor in New Ulm. Future plans include performing at the campus Christmas party on December 12th and at any other functions which require entertainment. Do members enjoy the club? When asked for their feelings on the club, Cliff Lagerman said, "It is by far the most unusual club on campus.iand that's why I fit in so welL" Lee Pe,chinlikes th'e-group because "it's creative and it's fun, and yet at the same time it's somewhat of an educational experience." â&#x20AC;˘ Tony Kufahl stated that "it's a joyful experience; it's great to make someone smile!"

I had one interesting and - memorable incidents taste some apple slices, another taste they have agreed to share with our some orange slices, and the last one taste readers.

Each child Koslowske, Jean Noeldner, and Deb correctly identified his or her fruit. The Witte. ~ lesson went on and everyone was Who ever said things would be easy satisfied, or so I thought. One of my during the first few days of student volunteers came up to me after the lesson teaching? Jo Kowlowske taught second and said, "Miss Frankenstein, next time I grade at Mt.

Lynn Affeldt blurted out: "Miss Kawa ... saki?"



What about the second day of teaching? On her second day of student teaching in Winona, MN, Debbie Witte was told to lead her first and second graders out of the room for a fire drill, When the bell rang, the class followed her out of the room, down the hall, and up a back stairway, only to discover that the door at the 'top ofthe stairway had warped shut.' So Debbie had to. turn aU-sixteen children around, send them btick do;"n the stairs, down the hall, and out a different door. Chris Frankenstein -may brag that the students she taught were a very tasteful group, She -relates of her experiences right here in New Ulm: I was teaching my nineteen first graders a science lesson on the sense of taste. They were to learn that some things can be-identified simply,by the way they taste. The experiment was to consist of three Volunteers closing their eyes and tasting some kind of food, then tell the resrot the class what il'was. When I asked for volunteers, I had nineteen different hands shoot up. (I.had secretly hoped that there'd be ollly three.)

We were putting some shapes together to make a little farm scene. After we had finished the tractor, Ben informed me that we forgot to make a fork. Without really thinking I asked why we needed a fork. He looked at me as if he thought I didn't know anything and said, "Well, to spread manure:' Of course he said it as loud as he possibly could, much to the amusement<;>ftherestofthe class. I guess that's what I get for growing up in the city. Honesty is the best policy, right? Jean Noeldner student taught at St. John's, Sparta, WI. She tells us: A week before my siudent teaching experience ended, I "stumbled" upon the idea that there might be a surprise party before my departure, The students were coming in after recess, and my supervisor had been secretly talking to each of them in the hall (which I didn't know). As they walked into the room, they were really quiet and had little grins on their faces. Then o~e of the first grade boys came up to my desk and said, "Miss Noeldner, next week is your last week to be with us, so we're all bringing money so we can have a surprise party for youl" Who says kids aren't honest little angels at heart?l?

After suffering yet another loss to past nemesis St. Scholastica in the opening round. the Lancers fought their way into the championship match by defeating Black: burn College and then subduing Fontbonne College for the title. The first two games of the championship match were close. hard fought battles in which the Lancers recovered from early deficits to win. The final and deciding game was a runaway for Lancers. Fontbonne's morale was so badly shaken after the first two games that they simply could not get untracked in the final. Defense was a key. The Carters.

Library Expansforr'Poses Quesfions-' _..........._ __ ...,._ __..


by Patti Zahn Editor-in-Chief What comes to mind at the thought of April 15? The national deadline for income taxes?Tom Banaszak's and Brent Maxwell's birthdays? The closing of the DMlC library? Upon returning from Christmas vecation most DMlC students received word

that aU library materialS were to be returned by April 15. for it ison this date that the library would be closing. This issue has sparked a number of questions among students. Why is the library closing? One of the reasons for the closing is that the heating and air-conditioning systems are going to be replaced. It was first planned that such work could proceed without closing the library building itself. However. construction officials have since informed the school that all library materials will need to be packed and moved out of the building before work on the new systems can begin. A second reason for the closing of the .Iibraryis to enable construction crews to expandthe library facilities. A fifty by one hundred twenty-five foot addition on the front of the library (toward the academic center) will greatly increase the total area of the library. This new addition will consist of w.o stories which will include many special rooms. New features on the upper level will be a map room. 3 conference rooms. listening/viewing room. offices. and a curriculum area. Included in the lower level. will be a darkroom. TV studio. expanded shelving. an expanded media . center. seminar room. and a computer center with a number of ne,wcomputers.

How much will it cost? Funds for the project are coming from the Reaching Out program. Estimated cost for the complete project is set at

An outside door leading directly to the Hillview basement will serve as the only entrance to the library. The other doors leading to the basement areawill be used

$1.198.000. What will be available to students in

as emergency exits only. How will the library materials

the meantime? While the library buildinq itself will be closed as of April 15. the library services will still be available. but to a limited degree. Professors have been encouraged to take 100 books each which will in some way be made available for student use. Hence. after April 15. assignments will be . somewhat scheduled according to the "limited book collection." The rest of the librarv books will begin to be packed on April 15. After this date. no students may check out h')oks. The estimated 100.000 items will be packed and stored in over four thousand beer oases from Schell's Brewery. New Ulm. Where will the books be stored? The cases of books will be moved from the library to the basement of Hillview Hall on a tentative date of Thursday. May 1. The cases will be stacked on pallets where they will remain until they are moved back to the library. It is also in the basement of Hillview Hall that a temporary library will be operated. Smaller rooms in the basement of the dorm will be designated as rooms for using the computers. laminating machines. and other equipment. A temporary checkout desk and shelves for the limited book collection will also be included in part of the basement. How will students get to and from the temporary library?

moved to the temporary library? The moving of materials will more than likely include student involvement. The exact details of the move have not yet been decided. but will be announced to the students as soon as available. What if students find' that the temporary library does not have the materials that they need? The library has checked into establishing a library service with the New Ulm


Public Library. Mankato libraries. and the Gustavus Adolphus Library. It is hoped that some type of interlibrary service can be set up and maintained to best suit the needs of DMlC students during this time of transition. When will the addition and change be completed? It is hoped that the library will be completed by February 1. 1987. though it may be ready at the beginning of January. What will the new library look like? The addirian will be made on the existing concrete structure; however, the front of the new addition (as seen in the picture) will be finished with brick to match the other buildings on campus.

"Curtain! Curtain!" by Beth Schmick Staff Writer For about a week in December DMLC student~ and professors had to tread carefully upon entering the college chapel. Lying on the floor in the aisles were curtain tracks. boards. and numerous other objects not normally found in a chapel. The mystery surround· ing the apparent reconstruction on stage was soon solved by means of a typical "after-chapel" announcement: New stage curtains were finally being installed. The story: In the fall of 1984 the DMLC Drama Club decided to purchase new curtains for the auditorium stage. Plans began to formulate in the minds of·the Drama Club officers. Pete Schewe. president of the club. informed me that he presented his ideas to President Huebner. business manager Stabell. and DramaClub advisor

Richard Buss in the spring of 1985. They discussed the plans and agreed to go ahead with the operation. In August of this school year Bill Chindlund. a sales manager from Northwestern Costume Co., came to the college to examine the stage. meet with the above-mentioned men, and take an order if there was agreement. After some discussion as to what the purchase would include. Mr. Chindlund went back to his headquarters in Minneapolis with an order. The curtains and accompanying tracks arrived at the college in December and were installed. Funding for the project was provided through a joint effort by the Drama Club. Children's Theatre. and the college itself. The total cost was estimated at about $12.000.

Christ Centered Resolutions by Cynthia J. Hahn News Editor As the month of January comes to an end and we begin to look forward to spring. we oftentimes also look back overthe past month to see what we have accomplished in the new year. Many of us have set New Year's Resolutions for ourselves which we are attempting to keep. As you look back. how many of your resolutions have you been able to keep?Havevou been slacking off. only doing them when you want? Have you decided to put them aside and try again next year?If you look at these resolutions that you have made. many of us will find that our resolutions are self-centered on worldly things. We are all guilty of it. BUT they need not center only on us. but include God in your resolutions. Let me explain. On New Year's Day I was sitting in church reading the bulletin and I came across a short quotation entitled "1 9S6 Resolution s'·. Anxiously I read them and tried to relate them to my life. Let me share them with you: During the new year with God's help I will: Like Paul. forget those things which are behind and press forward. Like David. lift up my eyes to the hills from which my help comes. Like Abraham. trust my God implicitly. Like Enoch. walk in daily fellowship with my heavenly Father. Like Andrew. strive to lead my brother to Jesus. From this we can see that we can center our resolutions on a God-centered life in the new year. Daily. each one of us try to be a better Christian and yet at times we may feel that we are getting nowhere. This is when we tum to God. He is our strength and power! Our forefathers from the Sible have set good examples for us to follow. If we are not able to keep the other new year's resolutions we have set for ourselves. maybe we ought to work harder at them. but do not forget about our lord in the process. I think that we can all find comfon in these resolutions brought about through the Bible. If you have not been following these resolutions. Jhen proceed to do so. for the glory of the Lord in heaven. Hopefully these resolutions will hold with you not only this year. but for a lifetime.

Letters to the Editor Dear Readers. In our December issue a reader inquired why The Northwestern Lutheran does not print the new addresses of women teachers .. I sent a letter to the editor of that publication asking about the issue. I have recently received a letter of reply from Pastor James P. Schaefer, Editor-inChief of The Northwestern Lutheran. He

writes. "I think your enquirer is'mistaken' and not a very faithful reader of The Northwestern Lutheran. For about two years now we have been publishing changes of address also for our women teachers," (Pastor Schaefer also enclosed a page from an issue which lists addresses of several women teachers.) Pastor Schaefer continues. "We get the changes of address for all - all teachers from the BPE [Board for Parish Education[ and print them all- men and women. Of course. there are peak periods for changes of address. and fall is not one of them!" I hope this reply answers the question posed about listing changes- of address. Thank you to the enquirer for writing and asking. Thank you also to Pastor Schaefer for his helpful reply.

Sometimes when I am all alone, I think of you and me; And if we weren't so far apart How different things would be. But you have your life. I have mine; They'll never meet again. But I am very glad to say That you are still my friend. Some people pan on spiteful terms. But never you and I. There just was too much caring there Andwill be as the years goby. I never will forget you. And I hope we meet again. For nothing is so dear to m.e As knowing you're my friend.

Students React: The Library Closing On Monday. January 13. the Messenger issued a poll which dealt with questions regarding the library and its closing. While the questions in the survey may havebeen a surprise to some. 85% of those that responded were already aware of the fact that the library was closing. A second question asked how this event would affect students this school year. For the most part those who responded felt it would be a great inconvenience. A number of students stated that it puts a little more pressure on them to get work done early and that they would not be able to procrastinate. Others wondered about the use of the computers and if they would have an airconditioned place to study for exams. The third question of the poll asked underclassmen how this would affect them next year. The majority of students felt it could again be an inconvenience in that it may be difficult to obtain all of the best materials and research books since not all may be kept out. Othersfeared that the few books taken out will not be enough. In addition. a number of students hoped the professors schedule work around it. according to the-availability of materials. The final question on the poU asked students if they felt expansion would be helpful in the future. An. overwhelming majority felt that while it is an inconvenience now. expansion would be extremely helpful in the future. Many hoped to see expanded resources, more books and materials. and also more computers. On the other hand. a few disagreed with the expansion. noting that the library was fine the way it is andthat it

For Valentine's Let 'em know by Pete Schaewe Staff Writer She' is very nice. And funny. And pretty. And talented. I've seen you staring and quickly turning away when she looks up. I've seen you strategically place yourself to get a seat near her at lunch. I know you sometimes take "the scenic route" so that you just happen to run into her; then you exchange friendly greetings and try to strike up a little witty conversation. No. it's not real obvious - but it's noticeable. Do you think she noticed? Maybe she needs to hear it. Have you told her how you feel? Does she know you care? Here's another one. Do you remember the other person who lives in your room? You know - the one who wakes you up when you oversleep. who sits up talking with you until the darkest pan of the night; the one who lets you borrow her clothes. shares her food. and drives you where you need to go. 'Do you ever thank

Wendy Mosher already has enough room. Others felt expansion should be done in other areas first or that the college should utilize other vacant buildings and facilities on the campus. .The day after this poll was issued. the Messenger was informed by the administration that more details on the closing were recently made available. This new-found 'knowledge affected the previous day's wording. Hence. to uncloud the issue and set the record straight. the Messenger issued a-second poll in which they admitted an oversight and released new information about a temporary library area in Hillview Hall. In regards to the second poll's questions. an overwhelming 93% of the students that responded were aware that the library was closing orr April 15. Of those that were aware of the closing, 65% were informed by faculty members. 9% by the Messenger (poll or staff member).and 26% by some other means. A final question on the poll asked students if they felt the student body had been adequately informed concerning the moving of the library. Ninety percent of those who responded felt the students had not been adequately informed. whereas 10% felt the students had adequate information. Editor's Note: In interviews with members of the administration it was regretted that more information about the library had not been passed on to the student body. This was due to the fact that many details had not yet been finalized and are presently being worked out. We thank the administration for their cooperation in this matter. We also thank the few students (14% of the student ~odyJ who responded to the polls. Your comments. both positive and negative. were greatly appreciated.

Student Teaching by Kathy Hinderer Staff Writer Another quarter passes. another set of seniors returns from student- teaching. Whether they come back with a humble new respect for the challenges of teaching â&#x20AC;˘ or full of confidence. like conquering heroes. or perhaps a combination of both. most have some interesting stories to relate to friends and classmates. Here are a few anecdotes that second quarter student teachers were kind enough to share: During the course of her experience. Laurie Radichel was invited to attend a party with other teachers in her area. There they played a game called "Vegetables" in which each player takes the name of a vegetable. The plavers sit in a circle. in the middle of which stands "It." armed with a toweL"I!" is supposed to hit the correct player with the towel when that players vegetable name is called out. It wasn't long before Laurie was "It." The word "parsnips" was called out. Lauriemoved to do her number with the towel, but as she did. she tripped and landed right in "Parsnips" lap. Laurie does not recommend "Vegetables" for a quiet indoor recess activity. Accidents seem to have been a common cause of embarrassment for last quarter's teachers. In first quarter curriculum class. Prof. LaGrow reminded his stadents that they would still be covered by the college's regular insurance policy while they were out teaching. Sue Goens asked. "What could happen?Are you expecting us to wipe out on the playground or something?" Prof. LaGrow replied. "Don't laugh-it's happened." Sue did laugh. but not for long. The first time he came to observe her in the classroom. Prof. LaGrow noticed Sue had some nasty cuts and bruises on one leg. "What happened?" he asked. "I wiped out on the playground." said Sue. Carla Free took a similarfall and ended up with her lett wrist in a cast for five weeks. To make matters worse. Carla is left-handed. Herfirst and second graders were all quite concerned for her, especially' one young gentleman who ,offered to tie and untie her boots for her at recess times. Apparently chivalry isn't dead. it's just become considerably shorter over the years. It seems to be selective. too. Miriam Westendorf also taught first grade. She received a Christmas present from a student. who said, "Here's your present. It's Avon and you don't even have to pay

Saga Continues for it." Then he turned to Miriam's supervising teacher and added. "You have to pay for yours. though," Steve Rosenbaum taught seventh and eighth grades. He tells this account of his embarrassing moment: "It all began with an innocent exercise- in Reading. The class couldn't think of a synonym for 'unyielding,' Finally, one of the girls offered 'submissive: which is an antonym. I suggested 'unsubmissive' and spelled it out loud; U-N. SoU-B.M-I-S-S-IV-E. It sounded like a cheer. so I jokingly told the girls they could use it at our next basketball game. About two weeks later, I was sitting in the bleachers at a game when the cheerleaders lined up before me and yelled. 'Hev, Mr. Rosenbaum' UN, SoU-B. M-I-S-S-I-V-E! Unsubmissive. unsubmissive!'" Steve, being the good sport he is, cheered right along. Beth Kuehl knew right away it was going to be .a~ interesting quarter in her fifth and sixth grade classroom. In the second week of her experience. she was observing a Reading class taught by her supervising teacher. The teacher asked a question about the story. "Why was Gramps so upset?" A sixth grade boy raised his hand and said, "Maybe he was constipated." Apparently the teacher couldn't believe she had heard right. because she asked him to repeat his a.nswer. "Maybe Gramps was .constiDated:' he said. "He was under a lot of pressure. he was tense. you know how it is .... " Your reporter also went student teaching last quarter. There were plenty of times I embarrassed myself, but the wildest thing happened on the last day. My supervising teacher was leading the class in their recitation for the Christmas Eve service when a knock was heard on the door. One of the fifth grade girls answered it. then turned to me and said. "Miss Hinderer. it's for you." Iwent to 'the door. and what to my wondering eyes should appear but Santa Claus. holding a beautifully decorated sheet cake. I wasn't the only one who was surprised. My supervising teacher and the class had known the cake was coming, but not who was going to deliver it. Despite embarrassing



surprises both pleasant and unpleasant, everyone survives student teaching and comes awaywith valuable insights. And if you want to hear a funny story. they usually have those. too.

Sports Beat by Dick Goodall Sports Editor Both the men's and women's basketball teams have had their ups and downs this season. At this writing, the women have fared a little better than the men, compiling a 6 and 4 overall record, while the men have fallen to 3 and 5. To the men's credit. four of their five losses were by two points or less. proving their competitiveness. The fifth loss came against Pillsbury College on a night when the Lancers shot a frigid 36 percent from the field. Up to that particular game. the Lancers had been shooting well enough from the field to win. and it was their free throw shooting that spelled their doom on the court. But against Pillsbury the Lancers reversed that trend and still ended up a loser. That's enough to give the coach gray hairs. All of this notwithstanding. the Lancers are a good ball club and when they finally shake off their

lethargy, they could prove to be unbeatable. Coach Leopold's Lady Lancers have had a better time of it. though not necessarily an easier time. in gaining six victories. Three of those victories have come since Christmas break. including two on an arduous weekend roadtrip to Northland College at Ashland. WI. and Mount Senario College in Ladysmith. WI. The win over Mount Senario was a lopsided victory. After getting off to a slow start the Lady Lancers have played some good basketball after coming off break. They are shooting more from behind screens, rebounding well. and making fewer mistakes and turnovers. Each victory seems to have had a different leader. making this. a better balanced ballclub than in past seasons. with no one individual standout. That should be a good sign for a fine season to come.

Even though a new semester brought about many changes. intrarnurals continued where they had halted for vacation. Recently. the women had their volleyball championship game. The game was between Beth Marti's Mogwai and Beth Affeldt's A-Team. The Mogwai won after two very close games. Also. all the top eight teams in the playoffs had close games. For men's basketball. the season is almost over. Two teams appear to have the best chance for the championship. which will be held in late January. Aufder Flucht with Dave Kolander as captain and Phil Stern's Luebbe's Little Lambs are the

two teams. Presently, the women's basketball season is just beginning. Shelly Lindemann's Swanke Franks and Ruth

Gretchen Sheirok, Grade 4 by Karen Lindeman Feature Editor Each of us probably has a story or two which we could tell about creatures hiding in our closets ormen lurking under our beds. The basement has long been a good hiding place for all kinds of monsters. and how many times have you caught yourself running up the steps as fast as you could because you were sure there was a monster only steps behind? Well, things haven't changed, Mrs. Barbara Kock's and Miss Adele Dietrich's first through fifth grade students from Jerusalem Ev. Lutheran School in Morton Grove, IL, write to us about fears they have had in the depths of the darkness. Perhaps the man under the bed and the monster in the closet will live forever. This is what scares me: A monster that is green and has a runny nose and sings "It's not easy being greenl"

Jenny Cole, Grade 3 Sometimes I am afraid when I turn off the lights. Some things look different. When I tum on the lights, I'm not scared.

Joanne Ceisel, Grade 4 My fear of the dark is not to put my head under the covers. A monster will take my stuff if I go under the covers.

CarrieJoyce" Grade 4 We have a pet in our classroom. One day he started to grow and grow. I had to

When I was five I would 'not go in my room because I thought someone would come through my window at night.

Sherry Martin, Grade 5 Fears in the Depths of the Dark In the dark I think a monster will grab me and take me to his dungeon. I see people getting killed and I'll be next.

Diane Ceisel, Grade 5 One night I was dreaming that a man was under my bed and he caught my legs. He started to chew on them and it was my mom. She was trying to get me up.

Stacy Boldt, Grade 3 I was scared of the dark in the basement. I tripped over things. I couldn't get the door open. I climbed out the window and I ran in the front door and told my Mom what happened.

Ryan Parker, Grade 2 One time when I was in my room the electricity went out and I got really scared. At first I thought it was my brother. He' was too far away from the light switch. So I thought it was a ghost. I ran to my Mom. We got flashlights so we could see.

Once when I was in the basement my sister Katie turned off the ,light; I tripped over the buggy. Katie turned the light on when she heard the crash.

CarrieKleist, Grade 1 r was reading a story about a monkey in the zoo. The lights went off. I screamed' for my Mommy. She gave me a flashlight so I could see.

CariKnuth, Grade 1 When I was in my room my brother turned off the light. I asked him, "Why did you turn off the light? I went out of the room and told him to go in and the light went on, I turned out the light. He came out and asked, "Why did you turn out the light on me?" I said, "I thought you were out." Jennifer Leu, Grade 1 We were in the baseme~t."~Megan turned off the light, I thought there was a ghost. I thought Megan was a monster. We screamed for Mom to open the door.

Katie Parker, Grade 1 I went into my room and made my bed. I ran out of my room because I was afraid. I ran to Mom. When I went back to my room the monster was gone.

Dawn Stevens, Grade 1

As the new semester begins to run smoothly. many students are once again updating their immediate life goals. For our seniors at DMLC this may mean making final preparations for marriage or to enter the "real world" of education as a teacher. But for DMLC juniors this means beginning to make preparations for student teaching. On Monday, February 3, 1986, ali eligible juniors are asked to meet in the Academic Center Auditorium at 7:15 p.m. for a meeting on registering for student teaching. This meeting is to provide students with the necessary information concerning course electives 'and when they will be offered in the upcoming academic year. This information is necessary because some classes will be offered only during one semester, making it necessary for students to decide what classes they wish to take. and thereby determine -\;yhichsemester wi" be their academic semester. This meeting will also provide students an opportunity to seek additional information on student teaching and to receive a registration form for student teaching. All students eligible for student teaching are to attend the meeting if possible. If they cannot attend. then they should contact the director of student teaching.

Paul Ceiset, Grade 1 Once my cousin Michelle turned off the lights. I called for my aunt because I couldn't get the door open. I could still see because the fish tank light was on. My cousins opened the door.

Recently, a downhill ski club was organized here on campus. At the first meeting, the following people were elected as officers: "Skip" Bremer (President), Dan Domson [Vice-President), Daneen Enter (Secretary), and Rebecca Maurice (Treasurer). Professor Meihack is the faculty advisor for the club. The purpose ofthe club is to determine times and set up transportation for all students and faculty members and their spouses that are interested in going downhill skiing. If enough interest is shown, the club may also be able to obtain special group rates. The club hopes to plan trips to Mount Kato and Afton Alps. Come on and beat those winter blahs.

Symbols Convey Our Lord's Passion

A Royal European Vacation I

by Karen Krueger Snow Carnival 1986 is now history. The travel, trama, and tears are behind us. Gina Hoerning, the departing queen of 1985, has made way for Connie Kroll, the n.ew 1986 Snow Carnival Queen. In her departure, Gina had words of thanks, praise, and well-wishes. "The court was great to work withll" "Each girl is a winner." "Emceeing on Friday night was a blastll" The competition was tough and the voting 'was extraordinarily close. Heidi Keibel in Russia opened the iron curtain. Kristie Rogotzke wiggled out from under Coach Gronholz's scrutiny. Amy Guenther valiantly saved.Senor Kruegero from tlie fierce bull. Laurie Gauger proved she was ready to work as the President's aid to foreign affairs if teaching doesn't turn out to be all she hoped for. Jodi Kammholz met Dean eve-to-eve-wlth or without her contact. Connie Kroll stole the hearts of all as she remembered lier mother's guidance. And bubbly Kathy Pruess proved to be too much, even for the mafia.

by Kathy Hinderer Staff Writer On the weekend of April 4-6, members of DMLC's handbell club will travel to Appleton, WI for the annual WELS Handbell Festival. The handbell choirs are directed by Prof. Wayne Wagner. The busy itinerary for the festival begins for the DMLC group on Friday night with demonstration in Winnecone, WI. The choir will play several selections and Prof. Wagner will give an informative presentation on the. bells. On Saturday, the participatinq groups will assemble at FoxValley Lutheran High School at 9:00 a.rn. The day will be devoted to mass rehearsals and clinics, including one given by a representative from a company which manufactures handbells, Opportunities for the different groups to compare music and enjoy fellowship will also be given.

The Bell Chamber, as the traveling group from DMLC is known, will add the music of their bells to Sunday morning services at Martin Luther and Trinity Lutheran churches in Neenah. The festival concert will begin at 2:00 p.rn. In past years each participating choir would have a solo number and there would also be several mass numbers. This year's festival will be different. The ringers will be divided into two large choirs, the Jubilate and Exaltate Choirs, with Exaltate being the more advanced group. There will be only one solo spot. Three DMLC students, Carla Free, Ruth Spannagel, and Miriam Westendorf, will play three pieces on the bells. Prof. Wagner will accompany them on piano. After the concert. the choir will load up and head back for a late night return to DMLC.

From the Editors Dr. Martin Luther



by Patti Zahn Editor-in-Chief It finally happened. I had waited four years for that historic day. On Tuesday, January 21, I eagerly approached my mailbox in hopes of some type of mail - even a leftover campus memo would dol I peeked in my box and alasl a real live letter was nestled. among the cobwebs. I quickly checked the return address - it was from a lady back home. As I turned the letter over to open it, I noticed that my campus address looked different, and rather long:

Education ought t~;~cr~ate.;·peoplewho can see clearly, imagine Ivividly, think steadily, and act nobly.


Poetry' Corner

Oh lord, Thee I adorel Praises from these lips I pour Lips unworthy to sing Thy name, my ruler, my kingl

Patti Zahn Dr. Martin luther King College Box 971 New Ulm, Minnesota 56073


King? Dr. Martin luther King College? Since when did I attend Dr. Martin luther King College? I thought it quite ironic that I receive a letter with Dr. King's name on it. The day before our nation honored the late Dr. King's birthday as a national holiday: the banks were closed, no mail, special segments on the news, articles and pictures in the paper. All the specialties might even cause an unaware individual to wonder if the school(s) named after the man had classes on that day. You may have had similar experiences with people calling your school Dr. Martin luther King College. Then perhaps you can relate to a memorable incident I had over Christmas break of my freshman year. In meeting a few of my brother's friends, I was asked where I went to college. My reply, Dr. Martin luther College, met many questioning looks. One friend innocently wondered, "You must have a lot of black people on campus." When I informed him of the error in his thinking and noted the differences in the names Dr. Martin luther and Dr. Martin luther King, he asked, "You mean they're not the same person?" I explained that Dr. Martin luther was a religious reformer who lived in the 1500s, whereas Dr. Martin luther King was a social reformer who lived in the twentieth century and was assassinated in 1965. They are definitely not the same person! (I didn't even attempt to explain why my college is located in southern 'Minnesota _:_ most assume it is in some southern town, like Atlanta!) When someone asks you where you go to school, do you tell them "Dr. Martin luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota," or have you limited it to just "a small college in Minnesota"? Perhaps you've just shortened it to a mere "Minnesota," leaving others with the impression that you attend the large, more popular University of Minnesota. As a senior, I realize that it tends to be tiring when you need to explain, "Dr. Martin luther College is in New Ulm, Minnesota. It is the Wisconsin lutheran Synod's teachertraining college where I am preparing to be a Christian dayschool teacher." Yet, is it impatience that makes one, when asked where one goes to school, shorten the lingo to "l'rn studying to be a teacher at a small college in Minnesota - you've never heard of it." Is this the best way to inform people of our school, our teacher-training program, even our Wisconsin Synod? Aren't we all at some time or other embarrassed of attending DMlC? Haveyou ever worn your DMlC or lUTHER shirts proudly among a crowd of UWlaCrosse, U of M, orWISCONSIN shirts? Is it a matter of school spirit, or shame of being a future minister of the Word? It doesn't take much to inform others of our school. When I returned that lady's letter I enclosed a short note telling her the correct name of my school and asked herto drop off the King in the address. I briefly explained the differences in the names and noted that a school by the name of Dr. Martin luther King College did not exist. Yet, suppose a school named after Dr. Martin luther King did exist: Dr. Martin luther King College. Do you think any of its students would mistakenly receive letters addressed to "Dr. Martin luther College"?

Please Don't Let Go of My Hand Lord I feel like I'm on a beach, walking On the shore, And I want to go play in the water But I can't because I have to keep walking. I don't know which direction to go _ Should I go back or should I keep going onward. It's endless - the shore is endless, and I keep falling down in the sand. But the lord picks me up and k~eps Pushing me forward until I reach the end. I can't see the end now but I know it's there. lord, please don't let me folly in the water, Please don't let me turn back giving up my goal, Not until I reach my destination. Oh lord, please don't let go of my hand. Debbie Birsching

My iniquity stands Not one thought or deed of hands Can claim a righteous hue. My soul is black through and throuqhl Wondering blindly, lost, Trying to pay my own cost Yet silver, gold, or gem Couldn't pay for one of them.

How weak my human heart When oft I set apart Sins, not trusting Your Word. Doubting feeling unassured. But, even sins as these Were forgiven midst two trees! The highest price was paid When Your sacrifice was maoe! Oh lord ..Thee'l adorel Praises from these lips I pour lips made worthy to sing Thy name, my SAVIOR, my Kingl

Letters to the Editor



New Teachers, Take Note!

Sign Language Club

Signing Their Lives Away by James Raddatz Staff Writer After He took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears, Then he spit and touched the man's tongue, He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, "Ephphethe!" (which means, "Be opened!"), At this, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly, (Mark 7:33-35) This very familiar Bible lesson is well known to the members of Sign Language Club-It's what they do best. Opening the doors of communication to the deaf and hard of hearing is what happens once a week to the near-thirty members of the six-year-old club. Through three dedicaied studentteachers the education in sign language occurs so that some day our Lutheran grade schools and churches to may do a better job of "spreading the Good News to all corners of the earth:'especially to the deaf or hard of hearing. DMLC's Sign Language Club is not only a club where people with like interests

get together to talk about what they have in common, but it is a means of educating. the entire synod about a ministry that needs all the help you can offer to give. Once a month Miss Jane Dorm, a teacher in the Glencoe, MN school district and a WELS member, comes to the campus where she teaches the club and gives them insights into teaching the deaf and hard-of-hearing as she does in her classroom. Once a year the Club members take a field trip to Miss Dorn's classroom to view her teaching and gain more ina formation about what the synod is doing to bring the Gospel to the hearing handicapped.

Dear Readers, As Editor of the Messenger I have received many surprises in the mail. One such delightful surprise is from a DMLC graduate, Kevin Loersch. He writes, "I graduated from DMLC in '84 and am presently teaching grades 6 and 7 in Hortonville, WI. As a writing project (and partly an encouragement to consider DMLC and teaching) I had them write my sister, Lori, letters of encouragement during her student teaching experience, "Enclosed is herreply. I feltitwas a fine letter summarizing her teaching goals and the first part of her student teaching, and thought you might possibly use it for the Messenger. (I am not telling her I'm doing this, so if you do use it. she will be rather surprised!)" Lori, I hope you are not too surprised. I felt that your letter does indeed summarize in a nutshell the teaching goals and teaching experiences many of us shar'8 with you. The Editor Dear Sixth Grade Class, First of all, I want to thank you all for your letters. They really brightened my day! It's not often a person gets 14 letters in one day. They came at the perfect time, too. I was sitting at school correcting papers and trying to figure out how. to grade something because they either did really good or really bombed out, and the principal walked in with your package. I was smiling ear to ear the whole time I read your letters! Now, I'll try to answer all or at least most of your questions. When I started college at DMLC I wasn't sure I really wanted 'to be a teacher, but I suppose I didn't know what else to do. It ran in the family, and a lot of my friends were going there, too. Not until my junior year did I really feel this is

used to - living with strange people, constantly meeting new people, etc. but it's all worth it when you see the kids learning and liking it. That's what I really like about teaching 1st grade. They're so enthused about learning and eager to volunteer for things. Sometimes if I want someone to come up to the front, or write on the blackboard, their hands are all raised even before I ask the question. Then, when I call on them, they don't even know the answer. We playa lot of little games in classes like Reading and Math. Sometimes the kids get so excited and are jumping up and down so funny that I can't help laughing! It's not always fun and games, though - at times it gets frustrating" but the good outweighs the bad! The first week or two I had only a few classes, but now I'm reaching most of them. The last week I'm here (March 3) I'll be teaching the whole day without the other teacher around at all. That will be neatl As for funny things happening to me, , haven't done anything too stupid yet,'but there's still time! One boy Ihave is named Chance, and he fits his name to a tee. You never know what he'll say or do next. You're always taking a chance with Chance! The children call me Miss Loersch, of course, but I also get called Miss Hintz (their teacher), and I've even been called

what I want to do. I really love student teaching. It's a lot of work, and there's a lot of things to get

Mom once or twice! Well, that's alii can think of right now. I really like it here and am learning a lot. Your letters were great, and I urge you to write more whenever you have time. It really helps to know people are thinking of and praying for mel Tell my brother not to give you so much work, so you have more time to write! Miss Loersch P.S. Good luck on your basketball tourneys that I'm sure are coming up for you, tool

Mystery Prof

Admirable People

Are all of you ready to get on your thinking caps for another Messenger mystery prof? I hope so, but first we need to congratulate Prof. Brick for being the only person to correct Ii identify the mystery prof for January. The very wellknown prof for January was none other than Dean Beverly Haar.Thanks to those who submitted their guesses. Here is another prof for you to correctly identify: The Mystery Prof for February. February's mystery prof was bom in Appleton, WI, and attended a public kindergarten while finishing the rest of his grade school years at a parochial school. This prof attended both Northwestern Prep in Watertown and Winnebago Lutheran Academy in Fond du Lac.College years for this prof were spent at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, St. Norbert's College and Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. Interests for this prof include bowling, books, movies, and music. With a family of four children, this prof is kept quite busy between his

Dean Haar time spent with them and the time spent with our college family - always trying to lend a helping hand. If anyone has any guesses on this prof, please submit them to Box 759. Remember: correct guesses are rewarded with gift certificates from none other than the RoundTable! Good luck! Hope to hear from you soon!!!

A Hobbit's Holiday by Cathy Starke Staff Writer Elves, dwarves, goblins, trolls, a dragon and a hobbit - not exactly what you would expect to find in a quiet town in Minnesota, but they'll all be here, on the DMLC stage, for the Children's Theater production of "The Hobbit". On April 23rd, 24th, and 25th for a total of six performances, the campus will be crowded by area school children who will be coming to enjoy this magical experience. There may even be a seventh performance on the following Saturday.

smaller. The timid hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is dragged on an adventure by thirteen dwarves and a wizard, to slay a dragon and recover a fabulous treasure. ~ith the aid of a magic ring that he finds, Bilbo rescues the dwarves from many perils before they reach the mountain. By the time they arrive he has grown bold enough to try to do the right thing even though it isn't very popular with his friends. This ending has been radically altered in the play, perhaps because it would have been extremely difficult to stage.

Allison Hoewisch, director of the play, sees the undertaking as a very exciting challenge. She wants the kids not only to be entertained, but also to learn something from the meaning of the play. The hobbit begins being timid, she says, but in his quiet way he teaches everyone gentleness and mutual respect. Allison thinks kids will love the hobbit, because he stands for good and will leave the kids feeling good.

Several side adventures have been left out of the dramatized version, probably for the same reason and also to prevent the play from being too long: But many of the lines have been lifted directly from the book, which helps to preserve the atmosphere. The production staff of the play includes Allison Hoewisch - director, Elisabeth Bauer - co-director, Sarah Knobloch - coordinator, Beth Schmickco-coordinator, Becky John - properties producer, Katrina Bufe costume producer, and Karl Bauer- set and stage producer. The large cast features Christine Desens as Bilbo Baggins: Mark Koelpin as Gandalf; Pete Markgraf as Thorin; Connie Lauber, Joy Panzer, Sue

The play was written by Patricia Gray, but it was adapted from a tremendously successful children's book by the late Prof. J.R.R. Tolkien. While Prof. Tolkien taught Anglo-Saxon at Oxford he was creating his own mythology around a language system he had made up. The Hobbit, written for his children, and begun almost on a whim, was the first manifestation of his vast secondary world of Middle Earth. The book was first published in 1937 and has become a classic in children's literature. It tells of the journsv of a hobbit, who is very like a human, but

Blauert, Trudy Hoeft, Holly Hempel, Joanie Carter,Tina Nell and Naomi Buege as the other dwarves, Clayton Raasch as Gollum, Kara Redlin as the Elven Queen Scott Wagner as Smaug, Lee Stroschin~ as Grocery Boy, Phil Rehburger and Paul Haag as goblins, and Connie Kroll, Judy Anderson and Beth.Sellnow as trolls.

by Cynthia J. Hahn I News Editor Who would you consider to be the most admired man or woman in your-life? If you had to make a list, who would you include? Can you easily find five men or women that you would put right on the top of the list? The DMLC students were given this opportunity in the past couple of weeks to come up with five top men and women who they admirer the most. These people did not have to be from our campus family, or from the United States, but anyone in the world that they sincerely admired. Before reading on, think of who you would have or did put down on one of these questionaires. Our campus student body came up with some rather unique and interesting answers. Out of all the polls submitted oiler this past year, this has been our best response with 126 ballots returning. After totalling up the scores for all of the men and women the results were quite different from that which might be published in a national magazine, Let us take a look at the results on the .DMLC rating scale. We will begin with the top five men. Leading off the race was Burger Ki"g's "Herb" with 8 23.2% followed by OMLC's own senior -Steven Granberg with a swooping 19.2%. In the third place rating forthe men was our nation's president, Ronald Reagan, with a 15.2% overall. Following Pres. Reagan was Larry "Bud" Melman with a 12% rating, while Bruce

Springstein took the number five spot with B.B%.As you can see, overall there was quite a unique difference in the professions and personalities of the men ranking in the Top Five Most Admired Men according to DMLC students. As for the women, none other than Lady Diana lead off the chart with a smashing lB.4%, who was closely followed by a women named Gwendoline with a 15.2% rating from our campus body. The middle spot was .taken by the first lady of our country, Nancy Reagan, with an even 12% vote. The fourth and fifth spots were shared equally by two women both receiving a 10.4% rating. These spots were shared by our student body mothers ("mom") and our student body mother away from home - the infamous Mrs. Siegler. Again, overall we can see that there was a variance in the women that were chosen by ous polled student body, From this poll it is evident to see that each one 01 us has different interests and tastes. Look over those answers again. Would you have answered any of them this way- or who would you put at the top of your list? Editor's' note: If sny otvou neve sny good, noteworthy end newsworthy subjects thet you would like to see in s Messenger poll, send your idea to one of the editors snd we will be happy to try to consider your idees snd use them whenever possible.

Three Plays for the Price of One Confirmation is March 23

by Pete Schaewe Staff Writer To parallel the new stage curtains in the auditorium, the Drama Club thought it would try something new this spring. Rather than the usual full-length spring play, three one-act plays will be presented at the end of March. The first play of the set is Lord Dunsany's "Two Bottles of Relish," adapted for stage by Edward Darby. Starring are Phil Zahn, Jo Koslowske, Jodi Kammholz, and Peter Schaewe. The play is being directed by Alan Uher. In this suspenseful drama, the characters and audience use newspaper- accounts and personal acquaintances to fit the pieces of a puzzle together and discover how a gruesome murder was committed. Play number two is O. Henry's classic tale "The Gift of the Magi," adapted by Brainerd Duffield. It is a touching story of two people who show their love for each other through selflessness.' Directed by Andy Willems and starring Phil 'Zahn, Heidi Graf, Robin Stuhr, and Bonnie Yotter, this play is a must for all die-hard

romantics. The third production is Jurgen Wolff's "Old Detectives Never Die," directed by Cathy Starke, and starring Jim Bra,un, Annette Wilde, Todd Stoltz, Heidi Keibel, Kristen Loeffler, Tracey Kriewall, and Cliff' Lagerrnan. This hilarious comedy (with a little mystery added) presents Sherlock Holmes at 118 years old. He sin't the sleuth he used to be as he tries to help the Tupperware lady, whom he believes to be

a damsel in distress, and solves the case of .the baffling brooch. All three plays are being produced by Peter Sordahl. The reason for the change from full length to one-acts for this year is simply that it is a change for the DMLC Drama Club, and a breath of fresh air for the audience. The phange,accomplishes other goals, however. The variety of plays presented have something for everyone: a little drama, romance, comedy, and mystery. It is hoped that tliis novelty will bring a greater number of people to the performances. It was also" desire of the club to get a greater number of people involved in production. Because of the nature of oneacts - short, with limited sets - less time will be needed for preparation, which encourages more time-conscious college students to take part. And, with one-acts, not only are more persons needed to fill the roles of three plays, but the situation also gives three different people the opportunity to experience directing a play. Performances are scheduled for Friday, March' 21,' and Saturday, March 22, at 7:3~,' p:";'; 'in' the DMLC Auditorium. Ticket. can De purchased at the door. Prices are $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for children under 12. Come share the excitement of live theater and get three experiences for the price of one I

More Tales from Teachers Student teaching i~ indeed a memorable experience. Ask any senior who has been out student teaching and I'm sure you will receive an earful. In this issue more second quarter student teachers share some of their more memorable incidents. Cindy 8ame tells us: While I was student teaching, I caught a very bad cold. I was I~ing my voice too, but because I was in my final week of student teaching, I thought I'd try to teach (even with half a voice!). That week we had just started the New Testament Bible lessons. I was struggling through "The Birth of John Announced" and was explaining how Zechariah lost his voice because he didn't believe. One of my first-graders, in all sincerity, raised his hand and solemnly asked, "Don't you believe, either?" Sarah Peter recalls the following incident: I was scheduled to teach my first lesson before I was completely comfortable with all of the children's names. Knowing I couldn't call only on the ones I knew for certain, I did my best to think quickly. In one row three first grade boys sat next to each other; one must beAdam, I surmised. I called on him and. much to my suprise, a voice from the other side of the room answered. Unable to track it down, and still looking at the wrong boy, I merely replied, "Right!" and continued the questioning. Paula Robinson shares one of her experiences: I was teaching the children about immigration in Wisconsin History. We were on the section titled, "Blacks in America." I asked the children, "What was unique about blacks who came over to America?" (They were brought over as

slaves was the correct answer.) One of the children raisad his hand and said, "They're darker?" Ed Schroeder remembers a few embarrassing situations which he found himself in while student teaching. He informs us: The most embarrassing experience I had while student teaching occurred on a Wednesday afternoon. The thermostat in the room went haywire and within ten minutes the temperature soared to 95 degrees. Luckily I only had one class to teach: News Currents. Sweltering in my suit and tie, I decided to show the new filmstrip downstairs in the lunch room. On the way downstairs, a mischievous sixth grade boy asked permission to use the bathroom. I firmly replied "No." Just afew days earlier I :,ad caught him fooling around il1the hallway while supposedly on the same mission. There was no way I was going to let him pull the wool over my eyes again! Toward the end of the filmstrip he meekly came up to me and whispered in my earthat he had had an accident. Needless to say, we both learned a lessonI On another occasion. I was given the responsibility of preparing my students for the Christmas Eve services. Every day we practiced our recitations and songs. Finally the big moment of the first mass rehearsal in church arrived. I beamed proudly as the class recited without a mistake in front of the entire school. But 10 and behold, the principal/organist started introducing hymn 85. All twenty pairs of fifth and sixth grade eyes looked questionably in my direction. I soon learned I had forgotten to teach them stanzas eleven and twelve of "From Heaven Above to Earth I ComeI"

Sports Beat by Dick Goodall

Sports Editor Lady Lancers Cruise DMLC's Lady Lancers have very quietly put together a most successful 12 and 5 record going into the final week of the season, assuring themselves of a winning season. With just two games remaining at this writing, the ladies seem assured of a high seed in the forthcorninc NLCAA tourney, Yvonda Beaudin leads the Lady Lancers in scoring with 206 points for a 13 points per game average, Ann Klatt is close behind with an 11 point per game average. Ann also leads the team in field goal percentage, hitting on 73 of 150 shots for 49 percent. The Lady Lancers have outrebounded their opponents 716 to 496, Tops in rebounding is Ann Klatt with 133, but Beth Wendland has 131. Yvonda Beaudin is the assist leader with 98 and BettY Carter leads the team with 53 steals.

A Season of Frustrations While the ladies have enjoyed a seasonof success, it has been a season of frustration for the men's team. The men have the exact opposite record of the women, 5 wins and 12 losses, Of the. twelve losses, seven have been by 2 or fewer points, and another was by just four points. At At first.' poor field goal arid free throw shooting proved costly, but Coach Buck worked in plenty of shooting practice during practice sessions to help the team improve in both categories. Now it is a case of eliminating a high turnover rate, sixteen per game, and reducing the number of fouls per game, 21, Reggie Tobias. who is playing his final season of eligibility, leads the team in scoring average with 17, and he is the top rebounder with 122, Mark Koelpin is tied with Reggie in field goal percentage at 54 percent. Ed Noon is tops in the theft department with 31 steals, This triumverate has been the heart and soul of the team and they will be sorely missed

by Karen Lindeman Feature Editor All our lives we look forward to things and can hardly wait for them to take place. Sooner or later these things are over and past, and a new set of expectations await us. There is something which all of us have to looldorward to - something which will never come to and end. That is of course our life in the kingdom of heaven. We probably have our own ideas as to.what our life there will be like, but 'no one will really knew until we see it with our own eyes. Mr. Frederick Blauerfs fifth grade students of St. Paul's Lutheran School here in New Ulm share their thoughts and ideas of what they picture heaven to be like.

Advocacy in Action

Guest Writer Spring Breakl Seems like OMLC stu" dents were everywherel Some were on tour, some went home. some' traveled to exotic places, some even did a bit of homeworkl Six OML~ students did something out of the ordinary, they traveled to Marrietta, Georgia,.on a Travel-CanvassWitness team. The team members were Carrie Hoppe' IV, Beth Rauch IV; Zoli Pethes II, Scott Wagner III, Brenda Hemmelman II. and Judy Anderson The slightly odd crew was chosen for a very special purpose: helping a congregation with evangelism. The congregation was Beautiful Savior Lutheran in Marrietta. Georgia. The congregation sent a call to the Special Ministries Board requesting a group to help their growing community. The 5MB then sent a call to OMLC asking for willing students. Those six we(e chosen from over 30 who were willing to serve the Lord with their time and energies, and off they went to


Georgia! The Travel-Canvas-Witness team does just what its name implies ... and more. A team travels wherever it is needed and 'canvasses a community. They took a survey so the congregation could find the unchurched in the area and those looking for a church. This involved knocking on every door in a given area, taking the information survey, and trying to leave a message of Jesus Christ with each person. The witnessing was new to almost all the canvassers, and, was

day. tal,king about our Savior and what He did for us became easier and we felt more comfortable sharing the good news of Jesus. The unchurched yet interested people which we surveyed were visited later by the Pastor, vicar. or congregation members. Hopefully. a few will be moved ,by the Holy Ghost to join the family of believers in their local congregation. At any rate. people have heard about Jesus. and we know how the Holy Ghost works in the hearts of people. We can only pray for good resuIts! This work is very important to new congregations. as well as to established congregations. Any time we can help spread God's Word to anyone. whether in a team or privatelv, we are following God's command to spread His Word. The team stayed with members of Beautiful Savior and enjoyed real Southern Hospitality. As well as spending many hours beating the pavement every day. the team visited Atlanta. saw the historic cyclorama and ate at a historic southern restaurant. Time spent with the host families was also very special and helped develop the bond between six college students and a family of believers in the South. This experience was truly a rewarding one. Not only did we see the South with all its specialties and interests. but we were able to share God's Word with other people, people that weren't strangers. but were children of God. His lambs.

interesting sights included angry groups of women protesting AFOCcuts and verbally attacking and capturing various congressmen; and dram shop (bar) owners with neat hats

government. argument and advocacy became much more real.

Keely Brings Poe to Life by Todd Palmer Staff Writer The OMLC stage was transformed into a dwelling in Baltimore on March 18. as Scott Keely brought his unique dramatization of the last days of Edgar Allen Poe's life to our campus. Keely's repertoire included a distinct mixture of humor and horrific realism. His excellent presentation brought out the fact that Poe was often a very humorous man. whether willingly or unwillingly. The show also pointed out how disturbed Poe really was. and how much he depended on alcohol for daily living. The highlight of the evening. however. was the presentation of various pieces of Poe's literature. including "The Raven." "Annabelle:' and "The Bells." Keely brought an intense feeling to these pieces. and to the show in general. which made for a most interesting and enjoyable evening.

From the, Editors Making the Difference


HUmor makes the educated mind:

• ••• •• a safer mind. • ................. ~ ...................••

by LuAnn Vatthauer

Feature Editor Spring is such a beautiful time of year. but at the same time it is a very hectic time of year,Take a moment to look at your calendar and see how much you have to accomplish in five short. speedy weeks. Every year you think "How am I ever going to get it all done?" You have the problem of doing the usual schoolwork, preparing for May Night, packing for the summer, going on picnics, enjoying the spring weather, spending time with friends you will not see for awhile, and taking part of various other activities. Are you worn out just thinking of all the necessary things to be done before May 117 If you are, you are not alone. This time of year everything seems so overwhelming. When will everything get done?Will you get the grades you are trying to receive?Will you be able to get any sleep? With all these pressures, you need help to keep you from going crazy,

Thank you for helping me today. I admire your understanding And, at times, wish it were mine. Thanks for your seemingly eternal patience; I feel I often don't deserve it. Thanks for the beautiful music you make; It warms my heart, Whenever lsee you and the sparkle in your eyes, I am happy and content. I care so much, You're special.

While you are trying to get everything accomplished, it is easy to forget about your Best Friend, If you stop and think about it, do friends forget about each other? Do you neglect your group of friends? Why would anyone want to? Doesn't that just make life worthless and hopeless?Your Best Friend wants to be included in all your activities this spring and the rest of your life. Remember to take time out of your busy life to talk to him and listen to his words. Doing this will make a difference.

I guess what I'm trying to say, is Thank vou for being you.

Daffy Definition

"I was sick and you visited .me" by Deb LaGrow

Guest Writer "I was sick and you visited me." These words of Jesus are very familiar to us. But have you ever really thought about these words or applied them to your own -life? You may say, "I'm a college student. Where do I have the opportunity to visit sick, people?" Let me tell you - "visiting the sick" can be so much more than bringing your roommate a sick tray when he or she has the flu. There is a world of sick and lonely people out there; people who are real and alive. and need love and attention. And they are living only four blocks from this very campus! They are residents of a nursing home, If you've never been to a nursing home. the idea may scare you. Becauseyou are living in a world of young people, the elderly at a nursing home may seem like another species to you. But most are no different from you and me. They are human men and women who have a sense of humor, like to get together with friends, keep track of their soaps, complain about the food their cafeteria serves, and enjoy a good party, just like you and me. There is only one difference. Because their bodies are not as young and healthy as they once were, they are placed in the nursing home to be taken care of'by trained nurses. This is where the sad part comes in. Once the family has placed Grandma or Grandpa in the home, they forget them and perhaps send a lener or two a month, Just imagine yourself in the position of these people. Many of them get no visitors at all, except a visit per week or per month by their clergyman. What would you do 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, with no school or job to keep you busy?You think you get cabin fever here in the winter. What if you could never go outside. never leave your dorm room? How long could you take doing nothing but watching TV and playing cards for the rest of your life? Couple that with total separation from all family, and you may get some idea of what they feel. What can you do?You are young and healthy. living your busy lives. You are so active. having so much fun. Can't you spare even an hour a week? Callthe nursing home. Ask if they know anyone who might like company, Go over there with a group of friends, or just by yourself. Make a new friend - a friend different from any you've ever had before! Don't think you'd have anything to talk about? Nonsense! That person has lived in times you are now studying about. and believe me. he or she will have much more amusing. poignant. or interesting stories and concepts than you'lI ever learn from a textbook! And you have 50 much to offer them - a fresh view of the outside world. a remembrance of themselves as youth, and a glimpse into a far more interesting life than their own. And you have something to offer each other - love and friendship. So please, don't dismiss this idea as not for you without even thinking about it. Visit a lonely person in a nursing home. I guarantee you it will make you both feel happy! (Phone numberlor HiQhland Manor Nursing Home is 359-2026. It is located at405 N. Highland, four blocks from Center Street.)

Choir Tour Journal

todavs itinerary. We saw the pad from which Challenger was launched for th'e last time. I kept thinking how blessed we are to have in our hearts and in our music the Word of God that sustains us through all the disasters of life. Tonight we shared that Word with our brothers and sisters in faith at Good Shepherd. Jacksonville.

by Kathy Hinderer Staff Writer 'Wed.2/26 Last night we packed the bus. Everyone was in a happy. eager mood. This morning we pulled out of campus a few minutes after seven. There was a surprise sendoff from a group of Junior girls dressed in tropical shirts. bikinis and long johns. They had stretched a huge banner across Highland Avenue and carried siqns that read "Florida or Bust" and "Bring Back Dan Moreno." Everyone loved it. Around here we toss off the phrase "campus family" pretty easily. but it takes somethinq like that to remind you of what it really means. Tonight we sang, our first concert at Trinity. Crete. IL. I think it will be a good tour. Thu, 2/27 It was a long day in the bus. but we made it to Madison. TN and Rock of Ages Lutheran, It is a small. new congregation and they have really bent over backwards to accommodate us. Members took 4.6, even 10 people into their homes for the night. They gave us a scare, though. At 7:25 there were only ,15' people in the church besides the choir. By the end of the concert there were about 45., O.ur hosts explained "Southern time" to us: you leave home when you are supposed to be at your destination. I think I could be real comfortable down here,:,", Fri. 2/28 Our concert tonight was part 6f the church dedication festivities at Sola Fide, Lawrenceville, GA. On' Sunday they will


dedicate 'their ibvel\t'new chapel;What joy to share in the hopeful spirit of faith -we sawall around us!

Sat. 3/8 Yesterday was a travel day. We went from Jacksonville to Knoxville. TN and stayed at a motel last night. Tonight we are hosted by Trinity Lutheran, Jenera, OH. and there is snow on the ground again. Sun. 3/9 Another busy Sunday. and our last day on tour. We sang in three churches in three different states: Granger. IN; Chicago. IL; and Hales Corners. WI. We

Sat. 3/1 Today we entered Flonda' Of course everyone was "soaking up rays," even though it was only in the 40·s. "You can't wear a coat. this is Horide!" We sang to a packed church in Holiday, where at dinner we found postcards and crossshaped chocolates at our places. Sun. 3/2 Sundays on tour are not days of rest. We sang in services at Clearwater, St. PeterSburg and Seminole and were late for our concert at Bradenton. It was worth it, however, to see the beautiful sunset over Tampa Bay and know that we had shared the Lord's Word with many fellow believers. Mon. 3/3 Our route 'today was south to North Ft. Myers. Bethany Lutheran paid our way into the winter home of Thomas Edison

there. We also spent time on the beach at Sanibel, picking up shells and other souvenirs. Tue. 3/4 We took Alligator Alley across state to Pompano Beach. On the way, we saw Ocean World in Ft. Lauderdale,where you can pet dolphins and baby ·gators. We also had a couple hours at the beach before our 7:30 concert at Ocean Drive Lutheran Church. Wed. 3/5 Today we hit the EPCOT Center enroute to. King of Kings, Maitland. We didn't really have time to do it justice. but it was a lot of fun, anyway. Today our route turned northward. Our days in the South are numbered. Thu. 3/6 The Kennedy Space Center was on

saw many familiar faces in the congre· gations - friends. relatives and school mates. Feelings were mixed. There was joy in "coming home" and sadness at ending the experiences we had enjoyed on tour. But mostly there was gratitude: to our leaders, Profs. Hermanson and Brick; to all the gracious people we met along the way;' and of course to our Lord. for a safe and enjoyable trip and the opportunity to share our faith and His Word with others. May the seed which He planted through us grow and bear much fruit. Glory and honor, praise, adoration. now and forevermore be His. On their 1986 tour the DMLC Chait covered over 4000 miles and sang to 3000 people. On the weekend of March 21-23, they brought their concert orogram to five congregations in Minnesota and Wisconsin on a mini-tour. They have also sung for church services in the New Ulm area and presented a homecoming 'concert March 16 at St. Paul's, New Ulm.

Mystery Prof

First Music Symposium

Held at DMLC by Jiimes Raddatz


Writer As future and present educators in Lutheran Schools we are all aware of the importance of music in our systems, as it rightly should be. For this reason we find that the first Symposium for Leaders in Lutheran Church Music is planned forour campus on April 10-12, 19B6. This symposium seeks to make available to WELS leaders in church music the expertise of several recognized Lutheran musicians and musicologists. It will also provide discussions on varying views, mutual problems, and challenges that arise within the sphere of Lutheran Music.

Now for this month's prof. He is very well· known by all students, whether they have already had him or not, he stresses one basic ability of a person and makes

Scheduled as guest speakers are Dr. Karle Erickson, Dr. Paul Bunjes, and Dr. Richard HiUert. All of the speakers are specialists in certain aspects of the music olthe Lutheran church and will bring their expertise to bear in their presentations. Other speakers for the musical symposium will be Professors Edward Meyer and Bruce Backer of our own faculty. According to Professor James Engel, Chainman for the Symposium, approximately one hundred Lutheran teachers will be in attendance for the three-day event, These interested individuals will represent nearly every aspect of the Lutheran education, including professors, instructors from high schools and grade schools, organists and choral conductors. The program opened on Thursday with registration, a concert. and a reception. Friday"sactivities include four essaysand various discussions throughout the day. All essaysand discussions will take place in the Music Center Choir Room and will be open to students only if there is ~seatingavailable.

Prof. Jacobson

Welcome' once again to the Mystery Prof! Last month's mystery prof was correctly identified by two students: Jodi Kammholz and Joy Panzer.The professor that we featured was Prof.Jacobson, who works in the library and loves to help the students in any need, such as searching out information for those many papers that are assigned each semester. Thank you to Prof. Jacobson for participating, and the people who entered their guesses.

that a priority in his classroom, so that we will also make it one in ours. Thanks to this prof, many students have progressed considerably in this and are commended for it - especially by friends and their supervising teacher. Besides this. this prof has been in teaching for over a half of a century and is able to relate many of his early teaching years with his young students and show us how development of a child can vary from student to student. All this combines to bring us a better perspective on how to deal with young children and why they develop in life as they do. One more hint: this month's prof is also an exceptional organist. althougp you will not see him playing on campus or in any.churches any longer. He learned to master his abilities on his own while attending DMLC many years ago. If you know who this prof is. please submit your answers to Box 759. Thanks!!!

-Musical Madness in March

Old Detectives Never Die, but they may certainly look like it. (Photo by Sue Carter)



by Pete Schaewe Staff Writer There was no "Spring Play" this year. Drama Club produced Spring Plays three one-acts - held on March 21 and 22 in the DMLC auditorium. The lirst 01 the three was O. Henry's classic "The Gift 01 the Magi:' directed by Andy Willems. In spite of a vow to buy no Christmas presents. a loving wile (played by Heidi Gra!) cuts and sells her beautiful 'hair to buy a watch chain.lor her husband (Phil Zahn). He. however. had pawned his watch to buy combs lor her hair. After a quick (and rather unique but effective) stage makeover. the audience was horrified by Lord Dunsany's "Two Bottles 01 Relish:' directed by Alan Uher. Willie Smithers (Pete Schaewe) is sure that the missing girl he read 01 in the newspaper was murdered by her husband. But what did he do with her body? Willie's roommate. David (Phil Zahn). is skeptical. but using newspaper accounts.

the landlady's (Jodi Kammholz) stories. and his vivid imagination. he discovers how the man covered up the murder in ... well ... a most cannibalistic way. A linal scene change brought laughter once again with "Old Detectives Never Die:' written by Jurgen Woll and directed by Junior Cathy Starke, In this comedymystery a 11B-year-old Sherlock Holmes (Jim Braun) is baffled by the case 01 the missing brooch. The old .sleuth tangles with a'Tupperware lady (Annette Wilde). is faced with mistaken identity and gene'ral household chaos. only to discover in the end (ssshhhhh!) that the purloined brooch had been keeping his shirt closed the whole time. Although attendance was moderate due to other happenings on the Palm Sunday weekend. the productions were well received by the audience. The novelty and variety olthe one-acts proved quite successlul.

by Joy Panzer Staff Writer During the month of March, our campus was filled with an abundance of various musical events. One could enjoy anything from piano recitals to chamber music concerts, to a sacred concert. The month of March started off with a piano recital. On Tuesday, March 11th, John McKay presented a Beethoven Sonata program..Mr. McKay is a student at Gustavus Adolphus College. This year's Faculty-Student Chamber Music Concert was held on Thursday, March 13th at 8:00 p.m. Those of you unable to attend this concert received a taste of it in chapel the morning of the concert. That piece was the "Concerto for Organ and Brasses" by Norman Lockwood. There were three movements to this piece. Andante con moto declso, Largetto, and Allegro. Featured players were Professor Charles Luedtke onorqan, Steven Biederibender on trumpet, Peter Sordahl on trumpet, David Biedenbender on trombone and Da_le Krueger, on trombone: Another piece was the- "Trio Sonata Movement in F Major" by George Frideric Handel, 1685-1759_ Players of this piece were Susan Amdt on flute, Rebecca Maurice on violin, and Tami Engel on organ. Compositions of Corelli, Buxtehude, Bach, and Mozart were also featured. The highlight of the March musical events was the Dr. Martin Luther College Choir Homecoming Sacred concert. This was held at SI. Paul's Church on Sunday, March 16th, at 7:30 p.m. The choir recently completed a tour of the southern states over Spring vacation. Under the direction of Professor Roger Hermanson, the choir performed a wide variety of

songs ranging from Christmas to Easter selections. They performed "The First Song of Isaiah" by Jack Noble. with help of a chorus from St. Paul's grade school. Their program also consisted of some favorites like. "Go to Dark Gethsemane." "Beautiful Savior," and "If Thou but Suffer God to' Guide Thee." These are just a small sampling of the songs they sang. I'm sure that all those in

attendance could see why this choir is so '''.. popular. On Saturday, March 22nd, at 2:00 p.m., Darin Menk gave a piano recital. He presented Edward -MacDowell's "Sea Pieces" Opus 55. No. 1-8. As we learned in the lecture before the recital. MacDow'el( sought to put the wonder of nature into music. For every .piece he wrote, a poem was written to go along with it. "Sea Pieces" brings the sea to life in eight different areas. Piece No.1, "To the Sea,"_has the poem, "Ocean Thou Mighty Monster." Other pieces portray a fairY sail and a fairy boat, and the yellow setting sun. Those who attended the recital could enjoy an afternool). on the

sea. Monday, 'March 24th, the auditorium was filled with the sounds of the "Con Spirito" Woodwind Quintet. It featured Barbera Kemper onflute. William King on clarinet. John Ralston on oboe, Erik Ludwig on bassoon, and Lori Johnson on hornâ&#x20AC;˘. Some! of .the songs. they played varied from "Trios Pieces Breves" by Jacques Ibert and "Restless Winds" by Faye-Ellen Silverman to name a few. This was an enjoyable evening for' all in

According to the musical director of the Chorale, Peter' Hendrickson, the concert will be a celebration of the European heritage which has so strongly influenced the people in southwestern Minnesota.

Teachers Tell It All Once again the tales roll in from the newly-experienced student teachers. At this time the final group of seniors are participating in the student teaching program. The following stories come from. a group of seniors who were out student teaching in the third quarter of the school year in the southern Lake Michigan area as well as the New Ulm area. Danica Drews tells us, "I found that when working with fifth graders, you can't use puns during class, or the students will take you seriously. I was teaching the three types of angles, and I said that the smallest angle is "acute" angle. Then I drew a happy face in it and said, "Isn't it cute?" On the test the answers all came in - "a cute" rather than acute." Who says students don't listen? Terri Eisenmann relates the following incident about her experience in Benton Harbor, MI: I was-reminding one of my second 'grade boys to sit down and be quiet: This student argued, "But Miss Eisenmann, I just can't. My mom always says the same thing. She even calls me Motor Mouth because my mouth' fs always' .running and I can't keep qulet." Later on that day I caught him sitting in his seat QUIETLY.'After five minutes of silence, I told him he better get up. and write his name, on the Good Job List on the board for sitting there so¡quietly. The student ~cknowledged -his finIJ:ajlcori1p; lishment, ,but',c;ornplaJned,"My, from sitting like this." He had apparently been trying to get his legs to touch the ground to k'lep, them tram' swinging. Dave Retzlaff recalls that athletics played a big part in his classroom, but not as he, had wished, One day one of the. ever-popu'lar .Paper fo.olballs landed on his delik: Dave approacti"d the culprit In a truly 'unique man~er:' h...¡ wrote on"the paper: "6~e 'more time, a';,<1\ll)u're dead meat:' The" he.kicked it back 10the gUilty party. After school that day Dave discovered a note attached to his car window. It said, "You're a dead man." Whatever became of sportsmanlike conduct in contact sports? Ask Jim Tietz about one of his more memorable days while student teaching. Student teachers are allowed to get sick too, aren't they? Jim just happened to be attacked by a case of illness in thefacilit,ies right after he finished teaching one day. However; it happened to be the day his supervisor, Prof. Meyer visited. When discussing the incident, Prof. Meyer wondered if itwas a case of nerves caused by his obserVance. Diana Best relates her shocking student teaching experience, "Student teaching had its moments - including those which even an inexperienced person could use to her advantage. Let me explain. I believe it was about the third week when my' sixteen first and second graders began to show their reluctance to come near me. I contemplated this action but continued with my work while' observing carefully to discover the reason. Then their actions became clear as I touched Jesse on the'

shoulder. He immediately exclaimed, "Ouch!' You shocked me, Miss Best." I apologized and smiled while the other children began to laugh, From then on it seemed to be a game with them - Shock and Tell. Day in and day out the shock treatments continued as students meekly rubbed their arms and shoulders, giving onlya little cry. But soon they learned that making a big fuss over being shocked gave them more attention. So their little cry turned into a loud "Ouch!" As each week passed, the students became braver and I began to feel more like a living Bible story. That is, as I passed each student" he/she would deftly reach out a hand to touch even the hem of my skirt to see if I would give off a shock. Enough is enough, I thought to myself, and put to practical use this newly-acquired skill. Without so much as a word I could quiet a child caught in the act of misbehaving by a single tap on the arm. You might say it's the Best shock treatment for disciplining children." Terri Drosteralso shares a light-hearted tale. One of her male students brought a light-sensitive doll named Chubbles to school. Whenever a shadow passes over the doll it makes a little bleeping noise. Herstudents liked \0 purposely set it off by passing by it on their way to hand in papers. Then Terri stored it under the podium, usually face down. One day she set it with the face up. That day the students were being very noisy, so she waited. for complete silence before beginning her devotion, Once it was quiet she made her way to the podium. Just then the sun came out. enlightening tho entire room. You guessed it: as Terri moved to the podium, her shadow passed over Chubbles' anc;l"bleep," Terri had to wait another five minutes before the room was silent again. Sheryl Rausch claims that student teaching was quite memorable for her. "Student teaching was fun ... I think ... maybe? Having 26 first and second graders in my classroom at SI. Paul's certainly meant that there was always plenty of action going on! For starters, came the invasion of the Cabbage Patch dolls - instead of having just 26 new names and faces to keep track of and only 26 people demanding my attention at the same time, somedays I know there were at least 52 kids in that rooml Then it was Pet Day in show-and-tell. Have any of you ever tried to teach math or spelling when a 'different enimal is parading through your doo" every 20 minutes?! However, I did survive both of these, only to be faced with the hysteria surrounding an outbreak of the dreaded loose tooth epidemic, Everyone wanted to lose more teeth than anybody else, and what better place is there to lose teeth than at school7 "Probably the most exciting days in the whole third quarter were Valentine's Day and Circus Day. Both of these days were absolutely unforgetable, but my fondest memory happened on Valentine's Day. aeing almost as excited about the holiday as the children, I had, of course, stuck little cards and treats in everyone's overflowing Valentine bag.

The amount of bells has increased over the years through donations given and the money received from churches after traveling expenses were paid. The Handbell Choir does travel for performan.ces upon request. Such performances are an interesting, new way to praise our Lord through music.

were busy "tearing into" both food and valentines, I eventually noticed that Adam L was standing near my desk and looking very intently at me. This particular boy is a little tough guy - the kind who never expressed much emotion. so I was completely surprised when he suddenly flung his arms around my neck, hugged me, and fervently said, "Thank you, Miss Rauschl" I told him that his hug was definitely my best valentine that day. "My most embarrassing moment naturally happened during my first day of teaching by myself; After I had dismissed all the children to get washed up for lunch, I saw that Kyle was still sitting in his desk with his hand raised. "Miss Rausch," he said, "I'm stuck." And he was

right. The shoestring of his left shoe was caught between some of the bars on the right side of his desk. To this d,\y, I have no idea how he got his foot in such an awkward position, but we could not separate Kyle's shoe from his foot or Kyle from his desk, By now all the other children had returned to the classroom and were watching Miss Rausch take on Kyle's shoelace with great interest. Just as I was ready to give up and call in a janitor to take apart his desk, Kyle's foot suddenly came out of his shoe. With a few good yank.$, his shoe came out of his desk. Kyle's and my embarrassment was complete when the rest of the children began to clap, That was the day I fully appreciated velcro shoesl"

by Sherman U,{ke'er Sports Writer "Chief" Goodall and statistician Tim Zellmer, Thanks for a job well done.

BASKETBALL Men's The men's varsity basketball team completed their first season under new head coach Drew' Buck with a 6-15 record, This was a season which saw the Lancers drop 8 games by 2 points or less, Coach Buck attributed many of the losses to inconsistency and turnovers, "If we just could have hung on to the ball we might have had a few more W's than L's." said Coach Buck, Although the Lancers are losing their top three scorers, Reggie Tobias (15,9 ppg), Skip Noon (12.9), and Mark Koelpin (12.2), Coach Buck feels next season's squad should fare a lot better due to the experience gained this year. Sophomore Mark Eisenmann had another solid season, and freshmen Sherman Unkefer and Nate Kieselhorst showed promise. This season was highlighted by capturing the Lancer Classic, as well as the individual play of Reggie Tobias (1 st team All-Conference), Skip Noon (AIIConference Honorable Mention), and Mark Koelpin (All-Conference Honorable Mention), Great job, guys! Also, a tip of the hat to graduating manager Dick



Women's When the women's varsity basketball season began, no one knew really what to expect. The Lady Lancers were a very young team with a lot of talent. Thanks to some hard work on the part of all, and some great teamwork. the Lady Lancersgained an at-large berth in the NLCAA National Tournaments in Kalamazoo. MI. Unfortunately, in their first game they ran into a team that shot 80% from the floor in the first half. Although the Lady Lancers, played well, they were unable to offset their opponent's hot shooting. In their next game. the Lady Lancers dropped a 3-point decision to Concordia St. Paul. Coach Leopold felt the loss of Yvonda Beaudin and Beth Wendland for fifteen minutes due to ankle injuries contributed to the loss. The Lady Lancers also lost the third game, Ann Klatt was named to the All-Tournament team. Beth Wendland completed a fine career by being selected to, the AIIConference FirstTeam. Ann Klatt, Yvonda Beaudin, and Betty Carter received


Sports Writer TENNIS Men's Coach Koestler's crew for this season features seven seniors. including two who are out for the first time, Having only lost two players from last year's team and picking up many talented new players, this is a solid team ready to challenge for the conference championship. The men's team is: Dan Plath Mike Koester Kyle Dahlke Nate Kieselhorst Clay Raasch Marv Wittig

TRACK A new women's track coach, Coach Gronholz and his assistant, 'Ed "Skip" Noon, have twenty wome'~ out for the team this season, With:'tIlllrrelght of the, twenty women returni~g ,,;..from .last season, the coaches describ~ team as basically "young and "ard' working." Leading this group are seniors Terri Droster (shot, discus), Sarah Peter(1500, 3000), and Betli Wendland (100 (t 400 hurdles, triple jump). The strength 'of the team will be particularly seen in the distance runners. This team j's ready for an enjoyable season, As one of the freshmen team members said, "Great coaches, great fun, everyone should come out and run:'

by James Raddatz Staff Writer As the year slowly grinds to a halt, almost every week night and many a weekend day numerous members of the student body may be found in the LMU gymnasium taking part in or watching an intramural game. Some of the most recent activities that haveconcluded for the year are men's and women's basketball. The men's bracket was won by The Dukes, Greg Birkholz, junior, captain, The women's bracket went for the second straight year to The Bean Sprouts, Tina Nell, junior, captain. Both of the championship games were well worth the time and effort of the players. Congratulations to all of' the teams who participated in both tournaments! Currently the men are involved in volleyball. The day-long tournament has been scheduled for Sunday, April 6 in the LMU gym, Within days the badminton season will begin with women's singles, women'sdoubles, and mixed doubles,

With only six of the fourteen players having played last year, Coach Leopold has a young team to work with this season. Letter winning catcher Ann Klatt. pitcher Cindy Lierman, and first basemanoutfielder Shelley Myers lead this group. After a yea( away from the team, Carrie Hoppe returns as the only senior. Coach Leopold says the strength of the team lies in the battery of Ann Klatt and Cindy Lierman, with many promising younger players filling out the other positions.

Coach Meihack enters this season with optimism, Many new players will be given a chance to improve on last season's 1010 record. The team lost many key players, including All-Conference pitcher Steve Jensen, who suffered a severe knee injury during the basketball season, and will have his second operation this month, The return of Junior pitcheroutfielder Joel "Train" Burmeister after a year's absence will somewhat lessen the loss of these players. The pitching staff is deep, but basically unproven, In addition to Burmeister and Gregg Birkholz, Dale Krueger, Dave Biedenbender, Linc Hohler, Craig Sonntag, and Jeremy Thiesfeldt will be given a shot at pitching, Both the returning infield and outfield are basically stable. This should be an exciting team to watch. The highlight of the season will be the April 24th double-

When he was being chased by the king he didn't even kill him when he could have. He was a real Godpleasing guy. Shane Seefeldt. Gr. 7

My favorite character in the Bible is Peter because he wasn't afraid to tell people about God and because he always obeyed Jesus and he was a good disciple.

Michael Devener, Gr. 1 My favorite character in the Bible is Mary because she had the Savior and she had strong faith that she was going to have the Savior. Elyee Niscbke, Gr. 1 My favorite character in the Bible is Mary because she is nice and she had the Savior of the world, Stephanie Hartwig, Gr. 1 My favorite character in the Bible is David because he killed Goliath, Jeremy Kaus, Gr. 1 My favorite character in the Bible is Mary because she is nice and because she is Jesus' mother, Amanda Artz, Gr, 1 My favorite character in the Bible is Mary because she was the one who had baby Jesus and baby Jesus was the son of God, and Mary is a very nice woman. Janell Hurley, Gr. 3 My favorite character in the Bible is Goliath because he is very tall and a strong warrior, He was about S feet or 12 feet tall. Chuek Ihde, Gr. 3

My favorite character in the Bible is Peter becausa he preached to the people and wasn't afraid, and his faith was very strong, He also loved Jesus very much. (Christine Devener, Gr. 3 My favorite character in the Bible is Moses because when he stuck his hand in his pocket it turned white. Jason Keempt, Gr. 3 My favorite character inthe Bible is Peter because he had very strong faith and he always thought of God and asked for forgiveness. Bryan Holder, Gr. 3 My favorite character in the Bible is Benjamin-because my brother's name is Benjamin, Also the name sounds very nice. Ellen Seefeldt, Gr. 3 My favorite character in the Bible is Peter because he was a very popular disciple, It is also in my belief that Peter had the strongest faith of any of the disciples. All through my listening to Sible History I've liked Peter best, besides Jesus. He was tha one who drew his sword' at Jesus' enemies in the Garden of Gethsemane, He stuck up for Jesus almost all the time. That's why Peter is my favorite character in the Bible, besides Jesus. Jeremy Artz, Gr. 4 My favorite character in the Bible is Samson. He was one of the strongest people in the Bible. He killed a lion with his bare hands. Jason Schwittay, Gr. 4

I like Peter. To me it seems that Peter has faith in God and in himself. And when he talked it seemed he really meant what he said. And you could see that he was a firm believer in God and in Jesus. And he had courage to preach God's Word. Michelle Randall, Gr. 5 like Abraham. I like him because he always talked with God. He was also nice to people he didn't even know. The stories about Abraham are also great. He also lived a long time. Kara Wenzel, Gr. 5 Stephen is my favorite Biblical person because he stuck to preaching even though he was beaten and was finally killed because of it. He kept going and I think we should be like Stephen in some ways. Anne Cooke, Gr. 5 I like Zaccheus because he climbed a tree just to see Jesus. He climbed a tree because he was very short. And he wanted to see Jesus. Chad Stange, Gr. 6 I like Joseph because he was sold by his brothers and was put in prison for something he didn't do and still kept his faith in God. And God put him 2nd in command. Heath J. Rickling I like Paul because he was always willing to do something for Jesus. And no matter what, if it was a matter of life and death, he would always preach God's Word. Tim Seefeldt, Gr. 6 I like Abraham because he brought the children of Israel out of Egypt. He also performed miracles. Aaron Holder, Gr. 6

My favorite character in the Bible is Mary because she was the mother of Jesus and she took care of Jesus the best way she could until they moved into a house. Andher son was perfect. Heather Seefeldt, Gr. 4

My favorite Biblical person is King David. The reason I chose him is because he always illustrated that he trusted God and was a Christian. Like when he fought Goliath he didn't come in armor or with a whole army. He came with God. And if you read that story you learn how much of a loving Father God really is. And even when he had Uriah killed so he could be with Bathsheba, he repented. And also he wrote the book of Psalms which is an interesting book. The story of Bathsheba shows us how much of a forgiving Father God is. Because if we know God forgives us, we won't be like Judas who killed himself. Tirsa Kaminski, cr. 6

My favorite Biblical person is Moses, I like him because he led the people away from Pharoah, I also like him because he was a prophet and he did a few miracles with God's help, Janelle Kaempf, Gr. 5

Moses is my favorite Biblical person, because he led the Israelites. He got hun and didn't eat for a.lonq time, but he still led them. He repented of his sins, He made some of the Israelites believe. He treated them good sometimes and

My favorite character in the Bible is Esther because she was beautiful and brave. She kept her secret for a long time. She helped to save her people, the Jews. Kara Puuri, Gr. 4 My favorite character in the Bible is Ishboseth because his name sounds neat, Jerome Hurley, Gr. 4

I like King David. He was a good king, and a good fighter. He was always good to his people and was just with them. My favorite thing about him is how he always went to war and won. So you might as well say I like the wars he fought. G. Gannigan, Gr. 7 My favorite person is David. In everything he did he almost always remembered the Lord. After he killed Bathsheba's husband and married her, he asked the Lord for forgiveness. He also wrote many Psalms for our enjoyment and comfort. Ken Seefeldt, Gr. 7 Moses is my favorite Biblical person. He, with God's help, led the Israelites out of Egypt. He also helped God make the ten commandments. The best thing I like about Moses is that he made a path in the water with God's help. Moses was a firm believer and I like him. Joel Hurley, Gr. 7 My favorite person from the Bible is Job because he lost so much of his treasures but still trusted in God. For that trust, afterwards God rewarded him for it. If everyone would be like Job, the world would be a much better place. Jean Kamps, Gr. 7 Job is my favorite Biblical person, probably because I remember him and the story the most. He can also be looked up to because of his great faith. When I think I've got a tough life I remember how much Job went through and my problems don't seem so big, Jill Wenzel, Gr. 7 My favorite Biblical person is probably Moses, He obeyed God and he also brought us the commandments. Moses built the ark and brought two animals of every kind in the ark. Then he died secretly and God buried him. i ,Robert Bartels, Gr. 7 My favoritj


person is Job

because'no ri)atter what Satan did to him, he would>not fall away from God. . Lisa Randall, Gr. 7 My IavoriteBtbhca! person is Peter. I like him becausehe always thought he knew everything but he always made a fool out of himself' whenever he said something. He makes you laugh when you read some of the things he said, ~tie

Hoffman, Gr. B

Paul is my. favorite Biblical person because I feet' he made some very great achievements. He devoted his life to God in its richest and fullest measure, He also liked spans as we can tell through his letters. Paul was also very courageous in what he did and I look up to him for this. Byron Schwittay, Gr. B

A Little Farewell by Patti Zahn Editor-in-Chief , Look around campus. The signs of a school year coming to a clo~e are quite.apparent, Garbage cans line the hallways, the dumpsters are full, and the stacks of inswer sheets fodinal exams are ready.

Welcome to Mystery Prof.! I must begin by commending everyone who correctly responded to the March/April ~ mystery prof - that being Prof. Sievert. I wish we could have given a'gift certificate to all of you, but since we had such' an overwhelming response, the Messenger would go into major. debt. We are not about to do' that, so the prizes were awarded to the firat four correct 'r•• pon.e. received,

'othert~o .mettts, they finished 4th and 5th. ,Deb Kiecker established a new record in the' 100 yard dash with a clocking of 12.8 seconds.



The women's tennis team is 5-2 overall, and 2,0 in confereflce. They have been playing very well and this can be attributed to their oyerall depth. Coach Dallmann says if this team can play up to . their potential a conference ship is not out of reach;


Now for May's Mystery Prof. This prof is known by all of the students on campus, even if they have never been instructed by this prof. At one time this prof taught in the inner city of Milwaukee to very young children, but now deals with the students of OM LC both on a oneto-one basis and also in a very large group. This prof has two daugt>ters and two sons, with whom this prof dedicates much time. Of all the profs on our campus, this prof is one who stands on a pedistal to instruct as some of the students look up at the prof and still others must yet look down to see him. Any guesses on the May Mystery Prof please. submit to box 759. Thanks for • participating in the mystery prof and we are looking forward to hearing from you again next year. R~member, don't forget to submit your intelligent guesses to Box • 7591 ." / .."
