With His Blessing This year, the staff of the Shield chose the theme "With His Blessing." As we have 20120 hindsight, this theme has become very appropriate through the year. Perhaps the most obvious of these connections is to graduation. Our staff of eight seniors recently passed through this stage of their life. We know that it is only "With His Blessing" that we have made it this far, and that we now continue on in our ministries. Perhaps another visible connection is the Professors who are leaving Martin Luther College. Professor Terry Graf accepted a call to become Principal at Siloah, Milwaukee. Professor John Paulsen has retired from teaching at Martin Luther College. Both these men have served at Martin Luther College "With His Blessing ," and now continue their lives in the same way. The final connection to this theme is the culmination of a traditional yearbook at Martin Luther College. A decision by the college administration in connection with budgeting constraints, brings to a close a long era and tradition of college yearbooks. The DMLC Excelsior staff began producing a yearbook in 1950. That book was continued until Dr. Martin Luther College and Northwestern College amalgamated in 1995 and formed Martin Luther College. From that point, until the presesent, a yearbook has been produced under the name the Shield. This is the final year of the Shield, and I hope that in this book you may see all the blessings you have in your life and especially at Martin Luther College. May you always continue your life and ministry "With His Blessing."

The 2005-2006 Shield staff dedicates this yearbool< to:





Although Professor Graf has only been at MLC for four years, he has been a busy man.

His main job was supervi sion of

student te achers throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. Once in a while you could catch him on campus, but probably only in the first four weeks of the semester, when he was teaching some Education classes. He has surely made a positive impact on his students over the past four years.


Profes sor Paulsen has completed an accomplished 35 years of service to MLC and DMLC.

He has served most recently

in the area of science, teaching Astronomy, Geology, and Physics.

He has been on

many exciting adventu res, including digging for dinosaur bones. He has also served as the Director of Special Services, a program which has helped many students traditional and non-traditional , undergraduate and graduate, continue and finish their education.

1950 DMLC EXCELSIOR STAFF We would also like to dedicate this yearbook to all past yearbook staffs. Since 1950, a yearbook has been produced annually. Without the dedication of each year's staff, the yeabook would not have been around all these years. Thank you on behalf of all students past and present of MLC and DMLC.

HOMECOMING Knight line

Homecoming is a special time of year for the college. It is a way to introduce the freshmen class to the way of college life and to spend time with many friends. There are a lot of ways that the freshmen get to know one another. The freshmen welcoming is a part of homecoming that is like initiation into MLC. The talent show is always a success and the students are able to demonstrate their talents for others. The game is always a way for the new freshmen to cheer their team on and do crazy things out in the field as dictated by their lord

or lady. The other way to show school spirit is to bring everyone together at the pep rally to get excited about the big game. The buring of the "M" is a tradition that is carried along with the class competitions. Throughout the week, the classes compete between each other in many different activities.

Winter Carnival Knights in Space

Take one part alien, two parts chivalrous horseman, and a dash of snow (because that is all we had again this year), and mix them together. The result is this year's WinterCarnival, "Knights in Space." Though we once again did not have enough snow to make sculptures, a number of activ ities kept us busy during the week. Perennial favorites such as Broomhall, Manhunt, Speedball, and the MLC v s . Seminary hockey game were joined by the

10 Winter Carnival

extremely popular date auction. As always, the talent show closed out the 2006 Winter Carnival. The current and future Student Body Presidents Justin Vilski and Mike Strusz provided a great amount of entertainment as MC's. As a bonus, the talent show featured a variety of content including rousing piano duets, rhythm speaking, harmonica jams, and rockin' out.

his week is a very special week for the freshmen on campus. During these few days, they get a taste of what the ministry is like and get their feet wet in teaching their own classmates and stduents from town. Many speakers come in and give exciting speeches to the freshmen about their own experiences in the public ministry. The speakers share their own insight and ideas with the students and give them a taste for what teaching is really like out in the field.


12 Student Teaching

The freshmen also get a chance to prepare lessons and teach them to their peers in small groups. Then the critique each other and help their group members to improve. At the end of the few days, the freshmen teach their prepared lesson to a small group of students that come to visit. This is such a wonderful experience for the freshmen students to be a part of. One learns so much from this week and it gives the students something to look forward to.

6tudent Teaching b.xperience It's the moment that's been anticipated for years. Much studying is done before this moment arrives and then it's over before you know it. The work that is put in feels like too much at times, but then it's worth it to see the student's faces when the information makes sense to them. An experience that will last a lifetime, student teaching is a way to get out into the field and practice the knowledge that has been studied. Many memories are created here and many concepts learned that cannot be leaned in the classroom.

itting in the faculty lounge, Pastor Soeder and Professor Lange searched for a way to share the ministry of MLC with others. TCW teams are well known and a common sight across the country. A TCW team was not what they had in mind, however. Then , Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, and an opportunity presented itself. Beginning in November and lasting through March, nearly 70 students had the chance to travel down to New Orleans and help families begin rebuilding their lives.


14 SOAR Trips

Using the acronym S.O.A.R. - Standing On A Rock - the students volunteered their time to gut a house from floor to ceiling. Everything that could be carried out was dumped on the curb. After that, the walls were stripped down to the studs. Overall, the experience was one the students will never forget. The love expressed by the students for people they did not know brought a renewed positive attitude to the communites they served.

Man of La Mancha When he and his manservant Sancho are thrown into prison by the Spanish Inquisition, Don Miguel de Cervantes must also plead his case before his fellow prisioners. In an effort to keep his beloved manuscript, Cervantes tells them the story written on its pages; the story of Don Quixote. This play within a play tells of a country squire pretending to be a knoble knight on a crusade against evil. On his adventures, Quixote touches the life of a young serving wench named Aldonza. Although Cervantes is handed over to the Inquisition in the end, as he leaves his prisonmates are inspired by his story and pledge their devotion to "The Quest."

Screwtape In this adaptation of C.S. Lewis' "The

Screwtape Letters," beginning tempter Wormwood has just started his apprenticeship. His mission? To win the soul of one Michael Green for hell. Things start falling apart though when Wormwood is constantly pulled every direction by his two mentors, his old experienced uncle Screwtape, and Slumtrimpet, a sly demon seductress. Although th e three have a difficult time working together, they do manage to wreck havoc in Mike's life. Filled with glaring innuendos and harsh realities, "Screwtape" gives the audience a more vivid look at Satan's influence in the world. Fortunately we have no reason to fear him as director Angela Leinberger reminded audiences before r.erformances: "This world's prince may still scowl fierce as he will, he can harm us none, he's judged, the deed is done. One little word can fell him" (CW 200).
