FOREWORD Included in John Dewey's philosophy of education is the thought that education is life. It is to capture the ideals and spirit of life at Winona State Teachers College that the Wenonah staff attempts to record in manuscript and pictures a cross section of the college activities in order that the Wenonah of 1939 will serve as a lasting reminder of a worthwhile and pleasant part of life.

IN MEMORIAM TO PRESIDENT DR. GUY EVERETT MAXWELL The graduating classes of the Winona State Teachers College do hereby respectfully dedicate this yearbook to the memory of their late friend and counselor, Dr. Guy Everett Maxwell.

1 I


GUY EVERETT MAXWELL 1870-1939 Well over half of President Maxwell's sixty-eight years of life were given to the college which stands as his handiwork, material and spiritual. Thirty-five of these thirty-nine years were given to the service of the presidency. And it was lavish giving! Buildings- the conspicuous, material embodiment of the college- were planned, secured from the legislature, and erected. The campus was extended by purchase and benefaction. Equipment was multiplied, and rich gifts of organ and objects of art were received and installed. The curriculum was expanded, the faculty doubled, and the student body enlarged in number and improved, as a group, in quality. The name of Winona, to which clings the spiritual meaning and import of our college, was enhanced in prestige. How zealously he guarded that name as he taught by example the idealism that is ours! How clearly he emphasized his belief in the consecration of the teacher to her work when he wrote and proposed an oath for workers in education, reminiscent of the ancient vow for physicians proposed by Hippocrates! How eagerly he sought and welcomed the promising varient in procedure that might conceivably make for improvement, for, as he so often said, "The best way of doing a thing has not yet been found." How untiringly he carried on during the crisis of the fire! How loyally, in the interest of students yet unborn, he gave of himseH for scholarships in the 70th year of the college! How efficiently he handled the multitude of details of a busy office, wiih never the need of an apology for a delay, while he kept it democratic and open How faithfully he attended college activities of all kinds, true to the trust that he believed to be his, to see that all was worthy and not a departure from fundamental purpose! And then, how carefully he husbanded his strength after his infirmity had been revealed, by denial of athletic interests, and by shortened social evenings that he might have energy for the demands that held his first allegiance!

I rl I




These will suggest the manifold ways through which in unfailing devotion he built the name of Winona as his spiritual handiwork.

But achievements alone, beautiful and bountiful though they may be, leave unrevealed much that we loved in our leader and friend. By the Beaver River, in a happy August week, I saw his fine consideration when with initiative and kindliness he took a leading part in all the duties of a camp. Even simple tasks claimed his interest and cooperation. He was eager to learn here as everywhere in whatever was new, and often questioned with a courteous deference a method or a phenomenon out-of-the-ordinary. We traced one day across the solid rock bed of the river for many rods a

I' j

formation which seemed to have followed in molten form a crack in the basic structure. His observation was close and his interpretations penetrating. I see him now in a rustic seat which had been built on a bridge suspended by cables above the stream. In the shade of lovely pines, while the bass and treble notes were flowing endlessly below, he spent hours with books and solitude. He loved nature and reverenced its Author. The words and tone of his grace before a meal touched one with their simplicity and sincerity, and proclaimed the source of his power and his purpose. Recognition of his inherent strength and integrity and of the worth of his leadership explains contributions, just for the asking, running to many thousands of dollars; and many more were made entirely unsought, because the one who to all! How earnestly he guarded the need for consecutive, dependable hours of work, that the college he guided might be in truth "an institution of learning"! would put them to use was trusted. As a speaker, he was vital, clear and convincing and his point of view sane, lofty, far-seeing, and practical. He seemed at his best in the more informal gatherings of faculty and alumni, at reunions and round-ups. Then spontaneous humor and good fellowship welded all into a happy, loyal unit. His speed of perception was remarkable, and a story recently told by his sister indicated that this quality appeared very early. When but three or four years old he approached his mother toward the close of a day with a wistful note in the question, "Mother, have I been a good boy today?" "No, I can't say that you have, Guy. You know you drove a nail into the kitchen floor, and you pulled the eat's tail, and--." "Don't talk any more," was the prompt interruption. His loyalty to his mother was touching. He drove through stormy weather in the brief respite of his last Thanksgiving recess to give part of his time to her. One who had not known him in his home lacked of necessity impressions of his ways and nature, of the sweetest and most revealing kind. His chivalry and quiet, perceiving courtesy, always in evidence, told of the affection on which the home was based. The warmth of his smile, the gentle quality of his tone, the quick twinkle of humor, the generous consideration for the guest, the tenderness toward Mrs. Maxwell, all served to supplement the impression o): fineness and nobility which had unfolded through the years.

Rarely is it given to one to touch so many lives through so long a time, and much more rarely to touch them in ways so beneficiently influential. He was a friend to mankind because he was a friend of little children, and he was a friend of little children because for so many years he gave his full energy of intellect, b~dy, and heart that they might be blessed by nobler teaching. WILLIAM A. OWENS


GUY EVERETT MAXWELL 1870-1939 As we pay tribute to our late president and friend, we are reminded on every hand of the tangible landmarks which were the products of his purposeful life. We are reminded that not only we, but the future students of this college, will feel and be affected by the immortal thoughts and ideals of this dynamic personality. Some one has said that "High ideals are life-like portraits in advance." If we examine the ideals of President Maxwell, we will paint for ourselves the portrait of a self-made colossus. One of President Maxwell's ideals which aided him in accomplishing many of the things he did accomplish was his unquestioned professional attitude. From the very outset his associates found that he was absolutely sure of the place he held in society and under no condition would he overstep those boundaries. Undoubtedly his most apparent and inspiring characteristic was his possession of a specific purpose and his tenacity to that purpose at all times. That, couplea with his length and breadth of vision, helped him to accomplish things which to many would have been unquestionably impossible. We have only to look back to the time when the possibility of having a new library was only a vague dream. How many difficulties and disappointments were encountered. And yet, through it all, President Maxwell worked diligently to actuate the powers that be so that

his vision might be culminated. When we mention Maxwell Field, Somsen Hall, and the memorial organ, we realize that he had a breadth of influence and vision which was bringing our college to the forefront as an educational institution. Perhaps the one thing which impressed the students most was President Maxwell's friendliness and understanding of students' problems. He knew all of his students by name and had an individual interest in each one of them. Under his guidance this college was truly the students' school, for any of their needs were carefully examined and cared for if it were at all possible. Mentally President Maxwell never grew old . He was much admired by the students for his youthful and fresh point of view upon life, which, coupled with his fine sense of humor, made him a welcome figure on any occasion. Whenever he lead the student body, he did so with a grace and kindly charm that always called for the finest spirit of cooperation and fellowship. Through his leadership, the students were instilled with the idea that the finest purpose for life was service to mankind and that they as teachers entertained unlimited opportunity for it.

If we, the students of Winona State Teachers College, make a worthy contribution to society and help to make our communities better places in which to live, much of our success will be due to the inspiration of President Maxwell. As we pay this humble tribute we dedicate ourselves anew to the role which we are to play in life, never unmindful that in death he did not die but rose to a glorious immortality which Winona State Teachers College and the world can never forget.

KAPPA DELTA PI Knowledge, duty, power-the true objectives of every student in the field of education-are embodied in the Greek letters Kappa, Delta, and Pi. Members in Kappa Delta Pi strive toward attaining these aims and in promoting a high esteem for teaching as a profession. Among the activities of the organization this year were the holding of several joint meetings with other clubs, featuring an illustrated talk on Mexico by Miss Crossman, art instructor, and a lecture on modern Russia by Miss Miller, college nurse. The members of Kappa Delta Pi also sponsored a tea for educators attending the curriculum conference in January. At the December meeting, Mr. Simmers presented a paper on Federal Aid to Students. Officers of the club are: Derwin Zappe, president; Lois Simons, vice president; Norma Jacobson, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Simmers is the sponsor.

WENONAH PLAYERS Wenonah Players, as the dramatic organization of the college, has the high purpose of giving along with dramatic experience, social contacts and personal development. The fall production, "The First Lady," was exceptionally fine; its Christmas play inspired the true holiday spirit. The one act play and reading contests for high school students were also sponsored by the Players. Guard membership is awarded those having shown outstanding service as leaders and directors.

On April 12th, the club went on a week's tour, featuring Harlem Moen, violinist. Towns included in the itinerary were: Sherburn, Jackson, Pipestone, Balaton, Russel, Redwood Falls, Montevideo, Olivia, Milan, Motley, Staples, and Verndale.

THE BAND "There's something about a band" and there's something exceptionally fine about the college band this year. Under the direction of Bernard Busse, the band has initiated and is carrying out a five point program which includes band participation, sectional rehearsals, ensemble playing, private lessons, and solo playing. The marching band is composed of about thirty-two members, the concert band including thirteen other members. The band makes on the average one public appearance a week in the form of football games, basketball games, radio broadcasts, and concerts at the college and neighboring towns. During the spring quarter a beginner's band was organized to give college students an opportunity to learn something about an instrument. All types of music were played and demonstration lessons on teaching applied music were given. Mr. Busse is aided in his work by two assistant directors, Dewey Storti and Alice Selness. Officers of the band are: Alice Selness, president; Glenn Johnson, vice president; and secretary-treasurer, Winston Wells.

MEN'S CLUB The work of this club begins early in the year with the election of new members. This year twenty-six new members were elected which gave the club a total membership of fifty. The freshmen men learned of the work of the club when they were made to wear those little purple "button" caps during freshmen week. When Homecoming came around the Men's Club took charge of the pepfest, bonfire, snake dance and decoration of the football field. On January 14, they sponsored their annual all-college dancing party. The club's officers are: Edward Barski, president; Howard Brokken, vice president; Charles Libby, secretary-treasurer, and Mr. MacDonald, sponsor.

KINDERGARTEN CLUB The Kindergarten room holds many memories for those Kindergarten Club members who meet there each month. This club always welcomes new members with a halloween tea. Soon after, the annual Christmas card sale to raise money for the Kindergarten Scholarship Fund is started. Probably the most pleasant memory is the "Christmas Sing" where carols are sung by candlelight and Miss Sutherland tells a Christmas story. Other interesting meetings follow.

INTERMEDIATE CLUB "The world has need of those who work," exemplifies the spirit of the Intermediate Grade Club. Perhaps their largest bit of work was done when they sponsored the all-college party in November. In addition to this the club had several interesting meetings during the year consisting of the Christmas tea, a lecture by Mr. Owens, and a picnic in May. Officers of the club are: Alice Ebert, president; Shirley Sievers, vice president; Fyrn Carrigan, secretary-treasurer. Miss Ella Clark is the club sponsor.

THE NEWMAN CLUB With the carrying out of its three-fold purpose-religious, educational, and social-the Newman Club has banded together a large group of college students. The variety of activities sponsored by the club has aroused the interest of the Catholic students of the college. Each quarter the Newman Club holds a communion breakfast with well-known men of Winona as guest speakers. A picnic to acquaint new members with the old was held in the early part of the school year and was followed by several other social meetings, including a Christmas party. The annual sleigh ride was one of the outstanding successes. The Newman snapbook is an interesting record of the club's many activities. Officers of the club are: president, William Kaczrowski; vice president, Delores Busse; secretary, Arlene Fahey; treasurer, Joe Flynn; sponsor, Miss Clark.

FOOTBALL It is a pleasure this year not to begin a resume of the football season by saying, although not outstanding in the victory column, the football season did have its merits. This year we can proudly say we did have a good football team, and an analysis of the team's record more than substantiates this. At the outset of the season, Coach Jackson was faced with a difficult task of replacing such men as Arns, Jorris, H. Schmidt, J. Eifeldt, W. Hanson and others. However, Coach Jackson was not without a nucleus on which to build. Among the outstanding veterans returning were Captain Wolverton, all-conference guard the previous year, R. Spencer, E. Spencer, Andrejek, Kraft, Barski, Kaczrowski, Dettloff, and Roelofs. Among the outstanding freshmen were Clawson, Sulack, Moynihan, and N. Johnson. Four Warriors, three backfield men and one lineman, were selected by the coaches' poll as members of the all-conference team. They were Wolverton at guard, R. Spencer at fullback, E. Spencer at halfback, and Art Andrejek at quarterback. Sulack was placed on the all-conference second team at tackle.

First row: M. Wolverton, N. Johnson, C. Sulack, A. Andrej9k, E. Barski, W. Kaczrowski, E. Spencer. Second row: H. Torgerson, J. Clauson, J. Flynn, R. Johnson, L. Walsh, C. Libby, L. Schmidt, G. Kraft. Third row: C. Dettloff, F. Moynihan, M. Roelofs, A. Thurley, K. Campion, R. Eastin, D. Gardner, T. Siiria, Fourth row: R. Dahlman, V. Wood, R. Darrington, R. Rowell, E. Einhorn, C. Duncanson, H. Grudem, E. Brandt. Fifth row: H. Brokken, J. Kalbrener, A. Flint, Asst. Coach Fisk, Coach Jackson, R. Spencer, R. Steffes.

First row: W. Kaczrowski, R. Spencer, B. Baesler, H. Grudem, A. Andrejek, C. Duncanson, H. Brokken, L. Walker. Second row: G. Peterson, E. Spencer, V. Wood, M. Roelofs. R. Eastin, L. Arns, Coach Fisk. Third row: D. Johnson, R. Foss.

BASKETBALL Without a doubt the surprise team of the year was the championship basketball team. Through the skillful coaching of Charles Fisk, the boys before they realized it were championship contenders . .It was their cooperation and competitive spirit that mads this possible. The fact that three games in conference play were won' in overtime periods seem to be prima-facie evidence of the fighting spirit of the team. It is true the Warriors lost the city championship to St. Mary's but they were beaten by a truly great team. In conference play the Warriors had seven wins in eight games, losing only to Mankato. The ten men who won varsity letters were: Captain Andrejek, Grudem, R. Spencer, Kaczrowski, Duncanson, Baesler, Walker, Brokken, E. Spencer, and Arns. Art Andrejek was placed at forward and Ralph Spencer at guard by the coaches who picked the N.T.C.A.C. All-Conference team. H. Grudem and Kaczrowski received honorable mention. As a result of winning the conference championship, the Warriors were again invited to attend the National Basketball Tournament at Kansas City, Mo . Although losing in the first game, the Warriors made a respectable showing. ¡

BASEBALL This year's baseball team was one of the best since baseball was introduced in the college as a major sport due to the return of many veterans and a promising crop of freshmen. The team's captain was Ed. Barski, a fighter if there ever was one. Other outstanding returning lettermen were R. Spencer, catcher; Kaczrowski, shortstop; E. Spencer and G. Smith, outfielders; D. Johnson, first base; and LaVerne Arns, pitcher. Some of the outstanding newcomers were Jozwiak and Weber, pitchers; Brandt, catcher; Wood , second base; Flynn, third base; and R. Johnson, Baesler, Eastin, and Peterson, outfielders. . The line-drive hits of Barski and Spencer, the sharp-breaking curves of Arns, the errorless fielding of Kaczrowski, and the consistent hitting of D. Johnson were some of the highlights of this year's team. A schedule of 14 games was played with LaCrosse, Eau Claire, St. Mary's , Mankato, and St. Cloud. ¡

First row: Coach G. E. Galligan, D. Rich, C. Sulad, H. Grudem, S. Farmer, C. Duncanson, H. Brokken, J. Davidson. Second row: J. Carlson. R. Steffes, J. Kalbrener, A. Thurley, M. Roelofs, T. Siirila, R. Westfall. Third row : J. Trisch, L. Schmidt, R. Ahern, E. Einhorn, W. Smith, L. King.

TRACK Track for the past two seasons appeared to be on a decline, but this year there was a revival of interest in this ancient sport. A large group of men responded to Coach Galligan's call. The team will be led by Captain Stuart Farmer, holder of the state record in the discus and the outstanding weight man on the team. Besides Farmer, other returning lettermen and their specialties are: Wolverton, pole vault and shot; Dettloff, 220 and 440; Ottman, high tump; Grudem, mile and two mile; and Grimm, javelin. Among the large number of newcomers and last year's non-lettermen are several outstanding prospects who although lacking in experience should develop into outstanding trackmen in a year or two. Those who have cauqht Coach Galligan's eye are Davidson and J. Carlson in the hurdles; Rich, Westfall, Steffes, Sulack, Kalbrener, Schmidt and Roelofs in the running events; Duncanson and Thurley in the weights; and Brokken and Andrejek in the pole vault and broadjump.

BOXING SQUAD Although boxing is not as popular as some of the other sports, if the number who turn out is an indication of popularity, it still has its merits. It provides excellent opportunity for body building and sportsmanship. The reason for the rather small number who turn out is not due to a lack of interest, but is due to other activities as basketball which keep many away. Mervale Wolverton, a classy boxer and good punisher, was again in charge of the boxing class. During the first half of the quarter most of the time was spent on learning fundamentals such as the various punches and the technique of footwork. During the remainder of the quarter the class was divided into the various divisions and the boys attempted to apply their learning in active boxing. The climax of the course was the annual all-college boxing tournament. The bouts consisted two rounds of boxing and a third if necessary to determine the winner. This year four college champions in the various divisions were crowned. The list of champions is as follows:

INTRAMURAL VOLLEYBALL Volleyball is without a doubt one of the most popular intramural sports as is evidenced by the large number of students that take part in this spring activity. All those who desire to take part are divided into teams of apparently equal ability by the intramural board. The tournament is then run off in round-robin fashion, i.e., each team playing each other once. A team composed of faculty members was also in the tournament; and we must admit that without that ;cam, something would have been lacking. This year's tournament was run off smoothly and efficiently, and as far as the boys were concerned, it onded all too soon.

INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL This year's intramural basketball race ran true to tradition. The scores were close; pre-season favorites did not win; interest was keen; and fun was had by all. In other words, all the factors _necessary for a successful tournament were present. As usual the members who took part were limited to non-varsity players. To enable those who worked on Saturdays to take part, this year, instead of playing the games on Saturday mornings, the games were played twice a week a.fter school. The highlight of the tournament was the championship drive by the Ford V8's captained by G. Peterson. The V8's starting slowly won 7 out of 9 games to cop the championship. Individual scoring honors went to Cedric Dettloff who scored 90 points in 7 games. The all-star teams were as follows: FIRST TEAM

The Queen Quilt Company presents UNCLE SAESOP'S TALES. Don't shoot that bed partner of yours! Get him a new Queen Quilt with a snore muffler attached. This device that slips over the head like a night cap muffles snores so they will not disturb anyone in the room and yet provides the sleeper with plenty of fresh air. It is so comfortable you will not know you have it on. You can get a Queen Quilt with one snore muffler for a single bed or with two snore mufflers for a double bed. Go to your nearest Queen Quilt dealer and ask to try a new Queen Quilt with a snore muffler attached. And now, here is Uncle Adolph Saesop with a fable for you: "Once upon a time there was a frivolous Grasshopper, who spent the summer months in singing and dancing and never even thought of working. Near him lived an industrious Ant, who toiled from dawn till dark every day storing wealth for the long winter. Upon the approach of inclement weather, the Grasshopper went to the Ant and said, 'Please, Mr. Ant, can you let me have a little food for this winter's consumption? I thought I had plenty of time to lay by a store for myself, but the snow and the cold weather came upon me unexpectedly. If you will let me have a little food now, I will gladly work hard and pay you back next sum· mer. "But the Ant replied, 'While I was working all day long to lay asi·d e enough to care for me this wint€r, you were wasting your time, and you even laughed at my industry. If you had had some backbone and had thought of the future, you would not now have to ask for help but would be prepared for winter as I am. Therefore, Mr. Grasshopper, go your way and don't bother me.' "Whereupon the Ant went to his room and read in the newspaper that the bank in which he had stored his wealth had gone bankrupt. "The Moral: So why work?" Uncle Adolph Saesop will be a regular weekly program, brought to you each Monday by the makers of Queen Quilts. We hope you will have many hours of enjoyable sleep with your Queen Quilt. I



This is the AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION OF THE ETHER, brought to you each week by the Tootsie Wootsie Baby Garment Company. On this program, talks ~ill. be given by notable people from all over the country. If you want to show us your apprec1ahon, buy Tootsie Wootsie Garments for those little tots. Tootsie Wootsie Baby Garments are leaders in style and in quality. The first lecture presented on this program will be given by Doctor Duck of the Quack Quack Clinic, located at Hoboachen, Wisconsin. His topic will be "How to Plan Your Day to Get the Maximum Health Benefits" and will be addressed especially to the students oi the Winona State Teachers College. Doctor Duck-"The subject of health is one which is extremely important to every one of us, but it is alarming to realize how few people, especially college students, know how to plan a day's activities in such a way that they can best protect their health. It is my purpose, therefore, lto outline for you the daily road to good health. "The first thing you should do, after waking up, of course, is to arise. The next step varies with different individuals. Some people like to exercise as soon as they get out of bed, while others prefer to exercise just before retiring. You all know that exercising uses up energy. It is all right to exercise either at the beginning or at the end cf the day, but you should not burn your candles at both ends. "Whether or not exercise is taken, you should eat a hearty breakfast. There is a limit to the heartiness, however. The breakfast should not exceed six eggs, four bowls of cereal, five cups of coffee, and two pieces of pie. "After breakfast is over you are ready for school. The morning should not be a period of hard exercise. Your breakfast will give you only so much energy, and you must conserve that energy so it will last until noon. On the way to school you should walk leisurely. If you start for school immediatey after breakfast, there is no reason for you to hurry. When you are in school, relax in your classes! Be at easel Take an occasional note, so your teacher will know you're awake, but don't force yourself. If the circumstances become such that it is necessary for you to recite, stand up to do it, but do not use unnecessarily vigorous motions. ¡ "There is no limit on your noon meal other than that imposed by your pocketbook, your landlady, or the dormitory. When the meal is over, lie on your bed or relax in an easy chair for fifteen minutes. "You are now ready for the most strenuous part of your day. In the afternoon you will have both physical and mental exercise. Two good ways to get the physical exercise are: (I) to walk to school more briskly than you did in the m6rning, and (2) to go from your locker to the third floor and back at least three times during the afternoon. If you find that you have to go to the library for some reason, that trip may be substituted for one journey to the top floor of the main building. The mental exercise consists of studying your lessons or working a good cross-word puzzle. After such strenuous exercise you should relax. Read something light-something unimportant-something that will not tax your mind. The funny papers are fine for this. "Supper-or dinner, if you prefer to call it that-is another big meal. You don't have to be at all particular about what you eat. If you can't eat just any old thing, your health is not good, and you should see your doctor immediately. "The evening is for recreation. The type of recreation depends entirely upon the amount of energy left from the afternoon. A hard afternoon will mean a lazy evening, and vice versa. "When you go to bed, you should fall asleep instantly and sleep soundly, because it is during this period of sleep that your body restores the energy you have used during the day. If you can't sleep, get up and eat a bag of peanuts and drink a pint of milk. I won't guarantee what kind of dreams you'll have, but you'll sleep." Next week the Tootsie Wootsie Baby Garment Company will present Sergeant Huntum Downe of the Drowsie Detective Agency of New York, who will discuss the subject, "How to Capture a Burglar in Your Parlor in Ten Easy Steps."

OUR SHORT SHORT STORY A good' Samaritan, passing an apartment house in the small hours of the morning, noticed a man leaning limply against the doorway. "What's the matter?" he asked. "Drunk?" "Yep." "Do you live in this house?" "Yep." "Do you want me to help you upstairs?" "Yep." With much difficulty he half dragged, half carried the drooping figure up the stairway to the second floor. "What floor do you live on?" he asked. "Is this it?" "Yep." Rather than face an irate wife who might, perhaps, take him for a companion more at fault than her spouse, he opened the first door he came to and pushed the limp figure in. The good Samaritan groped his way downstairs again. As he was passing through the vestibule he was able to make out the dim outlines of another man, apparently in worse condition than the first one. "What's the matter?" he asked. "Are you drunk, too?" "Yep," was the feeble reply. "Do you live in this house, too?" "Yep." "Shall I help you upstairs?" "Yep." "The good Samaritan pushed, pulled, and carried him to the second floor, where this man also said he lived. He opened the same door and pushed him in. As he reached the front door he discerned the shadow of a third man, evidently worse off than either of the other two. He was about to approach him when the object of his solicitude lurched out into the street and threw himself into the arms of a passing policeman. "For Heaven's sake, off'cer," he gasped, "protect me from that man. He's done nothing all night long but carry me upstairs 'n' throw me down th' elevator shaf'."

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. How glad you must be to have THE COLLEGE HOUR again on the air. This fifteen minute program is sponsored by the "U Wreck Um, We Fix Um Fresh Air Tire Repair Shop," which specializes in fixing flats. Ladies and gentlemen, no matter what goes flat-from your party to your pocketbook-call the "U Wreck Um, We Fix Um Fresh Air Tire Repair Shop" and get rounded out. Hours are from 9:00 a. m. to 4:00 p. m.; but if you desperately need aid outside the regular hours, a bill of permission and a license may be granted to one of our master mechanics to come to you in your dire distress. But now for our program. Today the cast will present a model initiation according to the way any faculty would want it. In the main hall of Wildcat College we find a number of calm sophomores initiating a mob of bewildered freshmen. One sophomore, Wiggle Waggle Wumpster, is taking the floor (where, I don't know)! A group of dignified faculty members are reclining in the rear of the hall watching the proceedings with grave concern. Listen while Wiggle Wumpster says . . . "Now, Fellow Searchers after Supreme Knowledge, we invite you to partake in what we call our annual Flop. You see, we wish to get the most activity out of the least possible movement, as it is a tradition in this institution that sophomores be lazy. First of all, let's sing the Alma Mater. You stand, but we won't. If you don't know the song yet, you may use the books." (Mad stampede toward the pile of books, followed by the singing of the Alma Mater.) "Mr. lwishu Goodnight, our beloved professor of Boatraceology, a stocky man who has a beaming smile for even a failure student, will now give the annual welcome address as a representative of the faculty." "Ahem-young men and women , future teachers of this great universe, we, the faculty of Wildcat College, wish to express our welcome to you in the simplest manner possible. Therefore, I won't speak but a minute. "We hope sincerely that you find the college friendly and helpful to you in anything .u.d everything you undertake, and we hope you undertake a great deal. Let us hope, however, that you all don't become literally undertakers, heh; heh. "We have great traditions at Wildcat¡ College which must be upheld. Again we must produce a champion chess star, an accomplished dominoes player, a good cross-word puzzle fiend, a candid cameraman , and an artistic pick-pocket. And after looking into the faces of these freshmen, I'm sure it will be an easy job. "Thank you for allowing me these few minutes of your time, and I will now turn the initiation proceedings back to Mr. Wumpster." ¡ "Thank you, Mr. Goodnight. Now, dear fellow students, we will adjourn to the gymnasium for social entertainment. We want each of you to adopt the following resolution: 'I resolve to become very well acquainted with some member of my class this evening.' To further this resolution , we wish that the young women would line up on the north side of the hall and the young men on the south side. As you leave the room by the west door, you will do so in couples. May many a budding romance result.'' Announcer: And that, friends, was the result when the faculty of Wildcat College took down the bars and let the students have an initiation. Your sponsors are the "U Wreck Um, We Fix Um Fresh Air Tire Repair Shop.''

How do you do, ladies and gentlemen? We bring you "W.S.T.C. NEWS-ON AND OFF THE CAMPUS." First a new development in regard to the library situation. The location of the new ¡ library building has brought about many tardy cases among the student body. Several individuals find it impossible to take a book to the library and get back to the main building in time for class. The solution suggested by one far-sighted person is simply this: an NYA crew will be employed to check books in at Somsen Hall and to transport them to the library later in the day. The school authorities feel certain that the NYA students will fulfill their task willingly and will not strike for higher wages when cold weather comes next winter. Now news of activities in a sister college. Last fall we were informed that every Tuesday night was proclaimed "ladies' night" at this college. On this "night of nights" the female species would ask the gentlemen for dates, and would treat them accordingly all evening. Oddly enough, there were no complaints from the men. In fact, they relished the idea, especially when thinking of financial embodiment. However, when things are carried too far, results are often disastrous. A follow-up report tells us that two men recently have suffered nervous collapses caused by fretting over their "wall flower inertia" (not being asked). There have been fifteen failures in credits as a result of the over-popularity of certain males; and, worst of all, there have been two marriages. The girls popped the question, of course. A flash has just come over the wires from southern Iowa. Two young farmer boys climbed a corn stalk to see what fhe sky and clouds look like, and now the stalk is growing faster than they can climb down. There is grave danger that they will starve to death unless they can be brought to the ground soon. So far they have subsisted wholly on green corn and have already thrown down nine bushels of cobs. A crew of six men has taken a contract to chop the stalk down with axes, but it is growing so fast they can't hit the same place twice. Aside from the danger of starvation, there is likelihood that in a few days the two boys will reach such a high altitude that they will freeze to death. There has been some talk of attempting their rescue with a balloon. For further details. read the Nosey Rag.

"FOR MEN ONLY"-the program which women go for in a big way. But listen, men, shoo the women away from the radio tonight, for you will receive excellent advice on a very delicate procedure. Surely you. don't want the women +o know all your secrets, do you? This absorbing weekly program is sponsored by the Lavender Talcum Company, the company which has put men on an equal basis with women-when it comes to tales. You men all remember the days when there WAS no Lavender talcum powder, and you remember how snooty the women used to be because of their flowery odor. But today, men, you no longer need to feel inferior, for Lavender Talcum can do for you what no other powder can. It actually attracts women! It makes you alluring in a rustic sort of way. Buy Lavender and be attractive! And now for our program. Here is Mr. Robert Seatly, who will discuss "How to Prepare for a College Prom." Mr. Seatly. . . • "Good evening, men. Tonight I shall talk on a subject for which I have received numerous requests. With spring in the air and graduation in the offing, our topic is very timely. "In preparing for a college prom there are essential elements to be considered. The first of these is the suit. As you all know, it really should be pressed. Of course, you CAN go in baggy pants; but be sure and dance 'only in the dark corners, so no one will be the wiser. If you do send your blue serge to the cleaners, have it delivered at least sixty minutes before you plan to depart for the affair. If your shining armor arrives late, you will be sure to tear something trying to get into it in a hurry. "Then there's the shoes proposition. Wear good, hard leather shoes, preferably with steel toes. These proms are always stamping parties! Steel cleats reveal subtle . discrimination in your choice of foot-gear, too, as 'revenge is sweet.' It is not necessary to get the shoes shined, unless you lead the grand march or plan to say hello to the chaperones. "The tie is essential to your outfit. An open neck is not acceptable, for nowadays hair insists on growing high on a man's chest. (Ain't it the truth?) Always choose your cravat to blend with the color scheme of your partner's gown. Nevery worry about your own appearance. After all, who do you think you are? "In selecting a shirt, choose one without a back, sleeves, or even a collar. Then you needn't feel as though you were suffocating. What you want is ventilation, and that's what you get when .you wear this type of chest coverer. "The pocket handkerchief should add color. The best standard hues for men are coral pink, sea green, and deep purple. You MAY use gentian blue if you like. Have this dashing bit of silk (or linen) peeping over the edge of the pocket. This helps you to acquire that shy demeanor. "Finally comes the flower. Choose one of the masculine kinds-honeysuckle, sunflower, or hollyhock. It should be worn on your right shoulder; but if it's too burdensome there, you may hook it around your neck. Oh, I forgot-if you sport a pocket handkerchief, you shouldn't use a boutonnaire. Oh, well, at a prom you can do things up proper. Good night." You have been listening to the "FOR MEN ONLY" program sponsored by the Lavender Talcum Company. Remember Lavender-it's like lavender and lace, that story-or that poem by Amy Lowell. No, let me see . . . that was "Patterns." But whatever it's like, don't forget it. Adios.

Each evening Station W.S.T.C. will present a program entitled LOONEY VALLEY, which will consist of poetry read to the accompaniment of appropriate music. Since this is a bulletin and we therefore will not be able to play music for you, we suggest you have a friend hum or sing soft music while you read the following gems: There was a man who fancied that By driving good and fast He'd get his car across the track Before the train came past. He'd miss the engine by an inch And make the train hands sore. There was a man who fancied thisThere isn't any more. Kissing spreads germs, so 'tis stated, But kiss me, kid; I'm vaccinated. Fate hit me very hard one day. I cried, "What is my fault? What have I done? What causes, pray, This unprovoked assault?" She paused, then said, "Darned if I know; I really can't explain." Then just before she turned to go She whacked me once again! Maud Muller, on a summer night, Turned down the only parlor light. The judge, beside her, whispered things Of wedding bells and diamond rings. He spoke his love in burning phrase, And acted foolish forty ways. When he had gone Maud gave a laugh And then turned off the dictagraph. There was a young lady named Hannah, Who slipped on a peel of banana. More stars she espied As she lay on her side Than are found in the Star Spangled Banner. A gentleman sprang to assist her; He picked up her glove and her wrister; "Did you fall Ma'am?" he cried; "Did you think," she replied, "I sat down for the fun of it, Mister?" Yes, life's like poker, sure enough; It pays to know just when to bluff.
