THE 1931 «SAGA» publ ished by

The Associated Students


Pacific Lutheran Colleg e

Parkland, Wash ington



December 7.

18SS-February II,


Pastor, San Francisco, California, 1880-1895.

President, Pac ific Lutheran University, 1895-1897.

Pastor, Oakland, California, 1897-1899.

Pa sto r, San Francisco, California, 1899- 1914.

Superintenden t of Seamen's Mission, San Francisco , Cal ifornia, Blesse d be his memory!

19 14-1931.




only obiective in the pub lishing of this , the

1931 Saga, has been to make a book that would d e pict clearly and interestingly the past year at Pacific Lutheran College-a book to be cherish ed, not so much for any external beauty it may possess, as for the pleasRnt reminiscences it may in later years bring to mind. If, therefore, we have suc足 ceeded in making this Saga a true representation of life at this schoo l, we shall fee l that our work has not been in vain.

0 President O. A. Tingelsta d, the man o n whose sho ul de rs at present rests t he respons ibil it y of pi lo t足 ing the big ship, Pacific Lutheran Col lege, to per足 manent success, we sincerely dedicate the 19 31 Saga.


Also to these four: Ph. E. Hauge, Marie Vandin 足 burg, Olai Hageness, and Evans Carlson , chosen by a representative student-faculty committee as persons best typifying the ideals of Pacific Luth e ran Co llege in the various departments in which this book features them, we dedicate this Saga .


Fi ve



who are soon to leave Pacific Lu t he ran Co l足

leg e shall carry with us certain memories which time wil l not erase-memories of t he campus scen es wi th wh;ch we bec ame fami liar during the brie f yea rs th e sc hoo l was our home. We shall always remembe r th e sta tely , snow足 capped moun tai n, whic h on clear mornings towered above th e world, the chap el whe re eac h day stu足 d ents and teach ers gathered t o worshi p, the g ym 足 na si um, which so often was the scene of ga iet y, and, f jna lly, t he bui:ding in which we stud ied and recited. And, th o ugh cha nges are made, we may in later yea rs, thro ugh th ese pictu res, f eel t he thrill t hat comes f rom again looking over t he scenes we learned to love.

HEN hearts are young and minds are f ree and high ideals fi re th e will, th e percept ion th at some足 t hing ough t t o be done res ults in th e attempt t o do it. Thus, last year , "Saga" was bo rn.

Yo ung hea rt s readi ly agree th at what eve r man has done, man can do. Theirs is a fa ith , subl im e and wo nd erful, in causes and instituti ons and fri ends. Th eref ore, this year, "Saga" greets us again, des pi te t he def ea ti st' s "It ca n't be don e." " Saga " means to me a hearte ning t est of fai t h. It is an inspiring privi leg e t o live and la bor among undef eated yo uth. Mo un ta in s do move in conse足 qu ence of f aith . In bui lding Pa cific Luth eran C oll ege and in pro足 moti ng t he ca use of Christ ia n ed uca t io n, we may ali share in t he victories chronicled and exe mpl ified by "Saga." Na y, more, we ought so share.

COLLEGE FRESHMEN W I TH the aim of fos tering a pleasant and sincere class and inter-class spi rit as well as of establ ishing a firm bond of union among the f irst -year college students, the freshman class was organized in September, 1930.

HE H ig h School seniors, though lack ing the age and experience of their colleg e brothers and sisters, have done th eir share toward making the years they have spent at Pacific Luth eran College pleasant one, not only for themselves, but for their f ellow students in other classes.

Perhaps they have not performed any dee ds that were especially spectacular, but th ey have , neve rth eless , faithfull y and willingly tackled the prob lems that faced them, whether in the classroom or in outside activities. When the se ni ors organ ized last fa ll, t he fol lowing officers were elected:

President ____ _ __ __

_Fred Lee _Rob ert Reid Vice President __ Alice Roe Secreta ry-Treasure r ___ _ When Lee left sc hool at mid-term , Reid took up the exec utive duti es. During the past yea r the class has been promi nen+ in most of the school activities. Th e mascul ine leads of the all- co ll ege play cast were pla yed by th e high-sc hool seniors. Th e choir claimed one-third of the cla ss in its membership. Th e football and basketball squads included a number of hig h-sc hool se ni ors of more t ha n ordinary ability. In fact , most of t he sc hool organizations had some of th ese class members on their roll . Aside from the general activities in whi ch th ey pa rticipat ed , the se niors under足 took a f ew specia l proiects. One of these was t o ioi n with th e college sophomores in presenting th e class play. Another was to put on a se nior party on Ma y I . Along with th e college sophomores th ey we re given a picnic by th e und ergraduates late in th e spring.

SHORT COURSE OPENING t he pathway to ed uca tion and intel lectual succ ess, t he beg inners' Short Course is well appreciat ed and valued by its vario us stude nts . By stressing some of the p ri ma ry essentia ls t hat com p ri se American le arning -la nguage , civi l laws, histo ry, and customs-this course has g iven opportunity to many who otherwise wo uld have been socially handicapped. The Short Course has proved espec ially well adapted to foreigners ju st ente rin g American life .

Th e cu rr ic ulum has been so chosen and arranged f o r t he benefit

of the matu re student as to enable him to enter a regu la r hig h sc hoo l course , and late r take up college work . Since t he term begins in Oct ob er and ends in ea rly March, opportun ity is give n students to go to schoo l in wi nter and contin ue t heir regula r work during the spring, summe r, and fall mont hs. It is sufficient to say t hat many sho rt course st udents have given t hei r time and muscl e as well as shown the ir school spi rit and th ei r mett le, by ente ri r)g into the college act ivities. These stude nts were especial ly well rep resent ed in t he athle tic turn-outs.

CHAPEL CHAPEL! This is the period of day to whic h the students and teachers of Pacific Lu t heran College look forward-a period in the middl e of the forenoon when t hey drop t heir every-day cares and worries to meditate on God's Word. Here, duri ng the chapel hour, t hey gain spiritual strength through song and pra ye r. Throughout th e week melT1bers of the faculty and, occasinally, speakers from outside t he Coll ege explain portions of t he Scriptures. Each chapel period is opened with a pipe-organ prelude t hat helps to create the atmosphere of worsh i p which is present during the execises. Likewise, the exercises always clos e with t he Lord's Pra yer and the singing of the Doxolog y. On Thursday of every week the chapel period is turned over 10 the Student Body. The students conduct devotion and afterward hold their weekly business meet ing. This not onl y provides valuable Chri stian train ing to the students in charge but serves to draw tighter the bonds that bind the students together . On Sunda y, Rev. T. O. Svare , th e church and college pas足 tor , is in charge of the services. Th ese services are attend ed by the. memb ers of th e Trinity Lutheran Church as well as by Rev. T. O. S VQ '2 college students. ~

ÂŤBROKEN DISHESÂť "BROKEN Dishes" , the all-school play, was successfully presented on Friday, FebruMy 13, to a large audience. The story was woven around t he Bumpsted family. Cyrus, played by Walter Young, was the hen-pecked bu t long -suffering husband of Marie Vandinburg as Jenny Bumpste d. They had t hree daughters, Myra , a schoo l t eacher, portrayed by Pauline Larson. Mabel, also a school teac her, pla yed by Marie Omdal, and Elaine, the prize of the family, presented by Frances Jane Lav;n. While Mrs . Bumpsted and the two older daughters went to a movie, Cyrus made arrangements for Elaine to be married to Bill Clark, the grocery boy, whom she loved, but whom her mother had forb idden her even to speak to. Bi ll was played by John Vernon. Clarence Monson, as Rev. Stump, performed the ceremony. Eric Hauke, as Sam Green, played a wedding march on the organ. While t he fath er and the newly married couple awaited the storm which was sure to come, a strang er, Sankey Johnson , arrived. He appeared to be Chester Armstrong, t he wonderful man Jenny always said she migh t have married. When Alvene Schierman, as Quinn, th e sheriff, came looking for "Slippery Che t ," they realized t ha t Chester was a crook. After Jenn y's explanation of the Chester she had known, she was reconciled to her daughter's marriage, and there was an indication of future peace for Cyrus. Th e cast and th e coach, Mrs. Loui se Taylor , deserve a great deal of credi t for rhe way in which they presented the play .

LYCEUM CLUB LIKE t he Colleg e Department, which has its Deba te Society for public speaking and debate, and it s Dram atic Club for drama t ics , th e High School has a Lyceum, which g ives t he high-school studen t s the opportunities tha t the other organizations offer t he college students. Th is new club was organized last winter, main ly t hrough th e

effo ~ts of Professo r N . J . Hong , instructor of Engl ish and principal of the Hig h School, v!ho is grea tly int erested in pub lic speaking, d ram a, and literature in g eneral. The name , one which was common enough a few decades ago when every small town had its lyceum, where lit erary subiects were discussed and deba t es and plays given, has connotations of the ancient Gre ek groves near Athens, where Aris颅 totle taught his pupils, and where free discussions usually followed lectures. Modern lyceums are simila r, in th at oral discussion plays an im po rtant role in the p rogr ams . The purpose o f t he Lyce um is t o foster an intere st in debate, in public spea king, a nd in dra ma t ics. To accomplish this the organization met at 12 :30 p. m. at inter颅 vals during the yea r. This hour , which was the only one available, was, perhaps, ra t he r unfo rtunate , for ma ny d id not fi nd it convenier]t.

The beginning made t his

yea r, it is ho ped , will give t he club an i mpetus for effective reor ga nizatio n next ye ar, and active work in li te rary f ie lds.

DELTA RHO GAMMA DELTA Rho Gamma is one of the newest clubs of Pacific Lutheran College, having be~n organized by day-student girls, both high-school and college, in December, 1929, in order to promote greater cooperation and understanding among the girls. In carrying out this worthy purpose. these girls have sponsored many social affairs during the school year. among which have been a Thanksgiving luncheon, a Christmas dinner, a Valentine's Day luncheon, a party on Saint Patrick's Day for the day-stu­ dent boys, a party for the Pep Girls, and a tv1ay Day luncheon. The dub last year adopted a gold and silver standard pin, inscribed with the Greek letters. Delta Rho Gamma. These are in English, D. R. G., and signify Day Room Girls. Active, commendable work has been done this year by the executives, who were: president, Marie Vandinburg; vice president, Evelyn Monson; secretary, Alma Grande; treasurer. Dorot hy Lehmann; yel l leader. Mildred Card. These officers have given every member of the club chances for active partici­ pat ion in the weekly meetings and in t he social gatherings.

This club was organized in 1926, when a need for such was f e lt among the male students. Since that tim e, th e Union has grow n both large r and strong er. Through颅 out the past year it has operated efficiently in t aki ng care of the milder disc iplinary cases and other dormitory proble ms.

keep up t he pace set by last year's Saga staff was no little task for t his year's group of yearbook writers. Althoug h t he an nu al published last year was the first o ne attempte d by students of Pacific Lutheran College, t he finished project was consid足 ered of value, not only by students, faculty, fr ie hds, and supporters, but also by t he Nationa l Scholast ic Press Assoc iatio n of the University of Minnesota, which, in a year足 book co ntest, awarded the Saga 890 poin t s ou t of a possible 1000, which is a "First Class Honor Rating" and is classed as "Excellent." The Saga competed only wit h yearbooks from schools of t he same class as Pacific Lutheran College. The "F irst Class Honor Rating" is next to the highest which could poss ibly be secured , the "A ll-American Rating" being the highest. In order to pub足 lish a Saga again t his year, the Student Body as a whole had to meet the following requireme nts, stipulated by the faculty: I. That there should be a guarantee fund of two hundred do llars set aside by the Student Body to be used in case of necessity. 2.

That each graduate sell one extra copy.

~----=.~..",.,..~~ ~ Sii..~IiM...--::"l*"'*~~se:--%::-::;;;;t~:-:;r~ ~ ~~






THE SAGA 3. That the Student Body guarantee practically a one hundred per cent sub颅 scription. 4.

That the faculty committee be allowed to choose the editor.

After the appointment of Olai Hageness to the editorship, and the election of Harold Gray to the managership, the Student Body exec utive committee met with the faculty committee to choose the best possible suppo rting staff from the num e rous interested applica nts. The staff chosen proved to be willing and capable and, although conditions for publishing a yearbook have been far from ideal, it has done its best and hopes that all who read the 1931 Saga will feel wel路l-informed as 1'0 the activities and events of Pacific Lutheran College during that year. In order to carry out the plans for as perfect a production as possible during th is year of financial depression , the staff sponsored a "Carnival Night" on April 10, whereby funds were secured for desired improvements. At this carnival a clever program was presented . a fte r which art istically decorated booths of various kinds were thrown open to the audience. This carnival was especially well supported by the students, who not only attended, but also a ided in arranging the affair.

LTHOUGH it did not get organized until late this year, the Lettermen's Club was active in adopting standards fer letter awards in major and minor spo rts. This organization is composed of all boys who have won th e ir le tte rs in some sport, and one of its duties is to establish requirements to gain letters in th e various spo rts. At its firs+meeting t~is year, the club decided that basketball, baseball, and football sho uld be the major sports and have a standard six-inch letter similar to the present letter as a rewa rd for completion of the requirem e nts. Te nnis, th e only minor spo rt engaged in at the College at present, will receive a four-inch letter of th e same des ig n as the ma jor award. The requirements that were adopted for the awa rd of these letters were suggested to t he club by Coach Clifford Olson as being rep re­ senta ti ve of those in other schools. The cl ub suggested that baseball should be discontinued as an in t er-collegiate sport, and that an intra-mura l arrangement be subst ituted . This suggestion was adopte d by Coach Olson, and baseball was dropped as a major spo rt this yea r. Another fu nd io n of th e club was t he recomm e ndati o n of awards of lette rs t o me n who had not pla yed th ei r full t ime, but who we re neve rth e less considered worthy of the award .

FOOTBALL T HIRTY-five gridmen answered t he sum mo ns of Coach Clifford O lson to start +he 1930 footb a II season. From t his numbe r, which included eleven lettermen , Olson was able to mold one of t he best elevens in the history of t he College. The results of the successful season placed Pacific Lutheran College on a real college basis in its sport relations with other schools. So successful was t heir wor k t hat, in the future , games will be scheduled only with schools of a ju nio r college rating or better, and, contrary to what has been t he case in t he past , t here will be no gam es he ld with high schools by the varsity sC]uad. P. L. C. 6-c. P. S. Varsity 7-Septem ber 26, 1930 In thei r firs t chance of t he year the Gladiators met the Logger va rsity outfit in a practice scrimmage. Although t he game was an unscheduled pre-season contest, the resu lts of the meeting, in whi ch the Glad ia tors outfough t , outgai ned, and ou t颅 'played t heir opponents only to lose by a score of 7-6, won grea t recogniti on for t he school. A host of new 路 friends and supporters, the placing of t he Luthe rans' na me on th e Varsity schedu le of th e Logger school, and a schedu ling of games with tea ms of a higher cal ib re than played before were a few of t he direct outcomes of this game.

ENNI S and Golf have fo r some years commanded th e inte rest of the stu de nts at Pac ifis Lutheran College , and tou rnaments ha ve often been he ld to de t e rmin e the school champion in eac h of th ese sports. In previous yea rs th e Gladiotors, besides holding these t o ur namen t s, ha ve f rom t im e t o time met outside competition on t he tenni s co urts . This year definite co llege teams ha ve been o rga nized fo r ea c h sport and are competing with othe r junior college teams in th e vicinity. The progress made in this li ne of athletics during t he past year would ind icate that Pa cific Lutheran College may soon estab lish itself a s a real t hrea t in th ese two games, as it has in Foot b al l and Bask e tba ll. Up t o th e tim e this book went t o p ress, the Gladiators had met only two schools. Th e divot d iggers surprised t hemselves and t he entire schoo! by trouncing a Central ia Jun io r Co llege sq uad 10 to 2 o n the Parkland Golf Course in th e first golf mee t in which a Gladiator team has eve r pa rt icipated. Th e racqu e t wie lde rs, o n the ot her ha nd , were not so lucky in th eir fi rst mee t of the yea r and dropped a contest to Gra ys Harbo r Ju nio r College, winning two ga mes and losing fou r. Both th ese t eams will -meet the same schoo ls again th is yea r and wi ll sched ule meets with oth e r nearb y teams. The golf team t ha t has competed thus far this season co nsists of C ec il Scott , Be n Pa lo, Herman Anderson, and Ra y Hinderlie. The members of t he te nnis team a re Wi lbe rt Nyman , H e rm a n Anderson, Sta nley Dahl , and Arnold Thoste ns on. A II th e se me n are ope n to challenge and , if defeated, wil l give up th ei r pla ces on the sq uad to t hei r c ha lle nge rs.

HE combined college and high-s c hool boys' physical ed uca t ion c la sses mee t twice weekly , Tu esdays and Thursdays, a nd are d irected by C. O. Olson through a well足 organized plan o f procedure d uring t he year. Th e work of t he classes vari es wit h t he season, wit h as much of it b e ing carried on in t he open as t he weather will permit. Duri ng t he fa ll months the meetings o f t he class are usual ly spent in o utdoo r games and exe rcis es. With the coming of the inclement weat he r the classes a re called in t he gymnas iu m, whe re organ ized basketbal l and ca listhe nics oc c upy the ti me. In t he mo nt hs ju st past, four teams , e ntitled t he Bea rs, Lio ns, Tig e rs, and Wildcats, e ng aged in a spirited basketball tournament . /\$ the m ild spring weather ro lls around, the classes are again carried on ou t of doo rs with organ ized tea ms in baseba ll, golf, and te nnis . Pe rhaps the g reates t work accompli shed by the p hysical ed ucatio n classes is with t he short-c o urse students , who duri ng their stay at t he school meet tw ice weekly as a sepa rat e class. When these st ud e nts e ntered the classes , t hey ha d se ldom wit足 ne ssed basketball ga mes; nevertheless, several co mmendable teams we re turned o ut fr om these students. Several of these st udents, through the skill th ey developed, worked t hemse lves into positions on the second sq uad of basketmen.

Seve nty -s i:-:



HE physica l education work for the girls is carried on in two separa te classe s, one for the College and one for the High School department, meeting at different periods. Miss Sophia Fowler directs the col lege classes , while Mrs. Elizabeth Bondy has charge of the high -school work. As the greater part of the enro llment of the col lege group is made up of girls of the Normal Department , Miss Fowle r, he ad of this department, has plann ed and d irected the class work so that practical knowledge of handling and t each ing of th is type of work might be learned. The teaching of simple, rhythm ic, and healthful gam es is t horoughly demonstrated, and each of the members of th e class is assigned periods in which she has charge of the work. During thi s period th e stud en t instru c足 tor is expected to teac h some game cJnd lead the class in playing it. Throughou t th e basketbal l season , however, part of th e class is turned over to Mr. Ramstad , girls' basketbal l coach, who teaches the fundamentals of the hoop spo rt. The schedule for the High School department inc ludes a program of well-planned exercises and games which vary with the seasons of the year. Whenever weath e r permits, Mrs. Bondy leads the class in outdoor work, which usuall y consist s of play足 ground ball. Basketball generally ho lds the center of interest whenever th e classes are held in the g ymnasium .

BASEBALL SINCE baseball has released it s hold upon the favored spot in ath足 letic activities of many schools , and has dropped to a place of minor importance in the ma jority of colleges, and because th e general interest shown at this school is not strong, the Gladiators we re not as active in the baseba ll world during the '31 season as t hey were in years past. Moreover, a vot e of the Lett ermen's Club favor ing the discontinuance of th e game as an organized activity was the determining factor i n Coach Olson's decision t o drop all inter-coll egi ate and all outside competition in baseball. H oweve r, the old pastime was not allowed to leave the College altogeth e r, as there was a sufficient demand among the lovers of the sport to warrant the co nt inui ng of the game und er a program of i ntramural play. Up until t i me for this book t o go to press there had been no definite teams picked to carry out t he intramural program , but plans were being made so t ha t the pla y mig ht get under way. Of the se1era l possible groups from which teams might be formed, the dormi足 tory and the da y students will undoubtedly be comp eting again st eac h ot he r with th ei r customary lively r iva lry. The ph ysi ca l ed ucation classes ma y also have one or two teams in th e play. Although th e new intra 足 mura l arrang ement had not ye t been put in action, there were usually enough en t husiasts o ut several t i mes week ly to fo rm one or two t ea ms for games.
