Dedication Because he firmly believes in the high ideals of his profession, Mr. William Owens has served our college for twenty-seven years with staunch loyalty and unselfish dedication. He has given unstintingly of his time and energy to promote the best interests of the college as he has seen them. As vice-president, Mr. Owens has successfully fulfilled the duties of administrator. Serving as chairman of the Committee on Scholastic Standing he has done much to foster high standards. It has been his special undertaking each fall, or when necessary, to administer the general aptitude tests to entering students. As instructor of psychology and through his personal advice, Mr. Owens has aided many students in social adjustment to college life. Mr. Owens has been teacher and friend to any number of students, who, even though gone from our school, will always be grateful to him for helping them to advance one step in the ladder of learning. Because we respect his judgment, value his friendship, and greatly appreciate the amount of service he has given our college, we dedicate the 1947 "Wenonah" to Mr. William A. Owens.


The "Wenonah" for the year 1946-47 is the first year-book to be published since the college enrollment has returned to pre-war levels. While the number enrolled now only slightly¡ exceeds that for the year 1941, the type of student group has changed materially. In pre-war years, women outnumbered men two to one, while at present the ratio is reversed. This change has affected the enrollment of students in various curricula. For example, now few women are preparing for elementary teaching. A preponderance of men will be noted in the organization pictures. Another notable feature is the low upper class and high lower class membership. To induct the large incoming groups into campus activities has this year been a major problem. Even the publication of a year-book by a largely new student staff has been a difficult task. Thanks to strong leadership by upperclassmen, this task has been accomplished. In other ways the college has had to make major adjustments this year. New faculty members have had to be added and new courses introduced to meet emerging demands. To meet the heavy loads which have developed in certain areas the college has had to add facilities or make the best possible temporary provisions. Alertness to need and readiness to change must characterize a college which is striving, however valiantly, to adjust itself to the demands for service that have been imposed by the times in which we seem destined to live. A sketch of these changes and a record of highlights in this current scene will be of increasing value to the student now passing through these halls. This sketch and record is presented in the 1947 "Wenonah" by a capable and conscientious staff.

Nels Minne, President

Administration To be able to walk down the hall, meet a student, and greet that student by his or her first name is an accomplishment few can acclaim. There are very few times when Dr. Nels Minne' cannot do this. This feat ties up very closely with the fact that his administration of our college has been a success. To coordinate faculty and student programs of activities is no small job for any executive. That this has been done and is being done by Dr. Minne' is evidenced by his popularity with faculty and students. We believe this is a case of having "the right man, in the right job"-Dr. Minne' as college president.

One Year More Presided over by Tom Baab, the small but active junior class had a surplus amount of "vim and vitality." They have been living in expectation of a glorious next year, when as a class they will take over the positions left vacant by the seniors. Co-workers with Tom were Edith Zamboni, vice-president; Jean Zamboni, secretary; and Lauretta Dickman, treasurer. Mr. Hosokawa acted as faculty adviser.

Two Down--Two to Go "Wise fools," these Sophomores, but though a class divided, they have carried through on the athletic field, on the stage, in the tower or the "pub" room, as well as on the honor roll. Losing some of its members through graduation may reduce the quantity of the group, but the quality is maintained by those remaining for their degree or for further pre-professional training. Dave Malcolm presided as class president, accompanied by Herbert Borger, vice-president; Marilyn Gilbertson, secretary-treasurer; and Robert Anderson and Gilmour Pike as delegates to the Representative Council. Miss Murray served as adviser.

The Freshman class, which had an enrollment of about four hundred, was the largest in the history of the college. At the first monthly meeting of the class, Rufus Bee, Red Wing, was elected class president; William Duffy, Great Neck, New York, vice-president; Rosemary Hallisy, Lanesboro, secretary and treasurer; and Dorothy Rosenberg, Altura, class representative to the Social Committee. Under the supervision of the class adviser, Miss Stella Pedersen, the class sponsored an all-college party based on the theme of a masquerade ball in January.

As hot sparks from a dynamo generate that lively stuff called electricity, so the hot sparks of the Die-No-Mo club generate another lively quality-namely, pep. Pep aplenty was issued from cheerleaders Joe Fennie, Jack Dyar, Donna Charlson, Julie Holliday, and Jean Wallace at basketball and football games and pre-game pepfests. Gaining fame and capturing the first prize at "T.C. Follies of '47" was the Die- No-Mo skit, "The Fatal Quest," directed by Judy Ferdinandsen. Robert Hayner furnished high voltage; and Doris Westergaard, the brush-spark for the year, with Mr. Jederman acting as insulator.

A.W.S. All W.S.T.C. women are members of the organization known as Associated Women Students. The activities of the group during the year have been numerous, all being in nature, of service to the school. Headed by Betty Elwood, who worked with Miss Stella Pedersen, adviser, committees were appointed to plan and conduct morn ing snacks and decorate the social room at Christmas and St. Valentine's Day.

Y.W.C.A. The Y.W.C.A. is affiliated with the national organization, which it first joined in 1910. With service to the individual, to the college, and to all as its goal, it has sponsored severa l activities on campus this year. In the fall the Y.W.C.A. sponsored the Big-Little Sister movement. Miss Louise Sutherland spoke at the annual Friendship Day in chapel. Students and faculty received flowers in honor of the day. One hundred fifty dollars for the World Student Service Fund was solicited through a campaign. Officers for the past year were: Mary Neil, president; Jean Jederman, vice-president; and Reta Baker, secretary-treasurer. Miss Stella Pedersen is the club adviser. Shown below is a Y.W.C.A. committee hard at work.

Wenonah Players The dramatic organization of the college, the Wenonah Players, was established for the purpose of raising the standards of dramatic productions at the college. Both modern and classic drama are presented for the worth of the material itself as well as for the experience gained in acting. The group is under the direction of Miss Dorothy B. Magnus. There are three classifications for membership : active, apprentice, and probationary. All students who successfully pass tryouts are probationary members. When a probationer has participated in one major production, he may be elect ed to apprenticeship. After ap-

pearing in a second major production, an apprentice may become an active member. Active members may be elected to guard membership through the point system. Every year shortly before the Christmas holidays, the Players present the traditional Christmas drama, "Why the Chimes Rang," and each spring another production is offered. Officers of the Wenonah Players were Jean Zamboni, president; Tom Baab, vice president; Marilyn Gilbertson, recording secretary; Beth Tooker, corresponding sec retary ; and Edna Pell, treasurer.

"Everyman" A modernized version of the medieval classic, "Everyman," was given as the Wenonah Players' spring production . True to the pattern of the morality play, the theme of "Everyman" is the struggle between virtues and vices for the possession of one's soul. Actors represented personified abstractions rather than individuals. "Everyman" is the best known surviving morality play, although the identity of its author is unknown. It was the first classic and the first costume play to be given by the Players in more than three years. A unit set of levels, pillars, and curtains was used. Lighting was provided almost entirely by a battery of spotlights. Liturgica l music, including a solo by guest artist Julian Neville, and symbolic lighting added dramatic effect. Professionally designed costumes of the medieval period were rented for the play. Miss Dorothy B. Magnus directed the play. Marilyn Gilbertson was assistant director and William Mahlke, head technician. Roland Radloff played the role of Everyman.

Radio Guild

Jim Cronen's Band

Radio Guild fosters and advances interest in radio broadcasting at the college. Script writing, announcing, interviewing, book reviewing, and learning how to handle sound effects and remote control are among the projects the Guild has worked on this year. The Guild has charge of the weekly program, "Qua rter Hour on the Campus," which is broadcast over station KWNO, Winona, from the stage of Somsen Hall every Wednesday afternoon at 4: I 5. During the past year, Guild members have interviewed new faculty members to introduce them to the public. Jean Zamboni was announcer and Robert Staehlin was technician. Recently the organization began producing a series of fifteen-minute plays. The first, "Tobin's Palm," an original adaption by Marilyn Gilbertson of 0. Henry's short story of the same name, was presented February 5. Officers of Radio Guild were president, Willard Laabs; vice president, Tom Baab; and secretary-treasurer, Beth Tooker. Productions are directed by Miss Dorothy B. Magnus.

Successfully making a name for himself with his triple-tongueing trumpeting and the danceable rhythm of his newly organ ized seven-piece band, was that fresh music major hailing from Mapleton, Minnesota-Jim Cronen. Playing for many of the all-school parties and post-pepfest sunlight dances, as well as other "outside" jobs, Jim Cronen's Band became well known to T. C. students. Jim's sister, Lois Ann, better known as "Sandy," played the trombone and acted as vocalist. Other T. C. students in the band were Fritz Hawker at the drums; Ted Walters, clarinet and sax; and Kay Vincent, piano. Don Turkington of St. Mary's College played second trumpet, and rounding out the rhythm section with his bass viol was Roger Ehlers of Winona.

Elementary Grade Club The Elementary Grade Club is open to all students taking courses preparatory to elementary or rural education. Anna Sprick was president; Bernice Thompson, vice-president; Luella Sukow, secretary; Marjorie Anderson, treasurer; and Miss Jeanne Brouillette, faculty adviser. Monthly meetings consist of educational and social programs. On the twenty-eighth of February, the club sponsored an all-school barn dance.

Science Club When those who remember Eddie Johnson's performance in the Science Club prog ram last year try to imagine how he is as president of the Science Club, they have a pretty good idea. Like Mr. Johnson's presentation, the club's business is as full of interest, dynamic and explosive as possible. The club's discussions range from the atom bomb to what kind of party they should have next. To help Mr. Johnson smooth the troubled scientific waters were Shirley Zimdars, vicepresident; Mary Neil, secretary-treasurer; and Mr. Arnold and Dr. Raymond, advisers.

Vets' Club Newest, and one of the largest organizations on the campus, is the Veterans' club. The membership, which is open to all students and faculty who have served in the armed forces, totals approximately two hundred. The purpose of the club is to act in the general welfare of the student veteran and to assist the college in its educational potentialities. Officers of the club were: president, William Grossbach; vice president, Edwin Johnson; secretary, Anna Sprick; and treasurer, Gerald Ostrom. Activities of the Veterans' club included sponsoring an all-school party. In December members sent a petition concerning student subsistence to Representative August Andresen.

Kappa Pi The Alpha Upsilon chapter of the Kappa Pi, national honorary art fraternity, was installed in a formal initiation June 1, 1946, with fourteen charter members. On February 12, twelve new members were initiated. Kappa Pi sponsors three annual projects: a bazaar to sell articles made by members, the painting of the Christmas window, and the spring formal prom. This year the club painted the mural on the walls of the Student Exchange and sponsored an exhibit of Kaethe Kollwitz' paintings. Officers were Constance Strommer Phillips, president; Nancy Staley, vice president; Myrtle Sallet, treasurer; and Evelyn Stephan, secretary. Miss Murray is adviser.

T. C. football stalwarts returned to the gridiron wars last fall after a three year lapse during which most of the squad members engaged in a more far- reaching conflict, World War II. This largely "veteran" outfit numbered eighty strong, and prospects for the season were considered very bright when a number of highly regarded area prep stars enroll ed here as well. Head Coach Eugene Brodhagen, three year letterman at tackle for the University of Wisconsin, took over the coaching reins. He met with hard-luck in his initial season here when the purple-and-white-clad aggregation failed to win any of the six games they played. The Warriors were plagued with injuries throughout the schedule. Considerable strong opposition was encountered, as most of the teams were bolstered with pre-war and service "~reats."

The new coach and his assistant, Luthe r McCown, didn' t count the season a total loss despite the dismal record. The final scores did not indicate the d iffe rence between the two teams, as " breaks" were a majo r factor in the outcome of the m. It was not unti I nea r the end of the season that the coaching staff was abl e to di scover the best combinations to work. Thus a groundwork for a mo re successful season next fall has been laid.

Varsity Cagers

Perhaps the main h ighlight of the basketball season of 1946-47 was the overtime victory by Winona over a very strong River Falls outfit. Although Winona lost five men via fouls t hey still emerged triumphant over the Falcons. Another good example of the type of ball t he Warriors were capable of playing was shown when they were barely shaded by Mankato 53-51. Mankato later came out second best in a mid-western invitational tourney. Wayne Kannel, senior center, was awa rded the second team center post on the all confe rence team. "Chip Sauer," tall forward was given an honorable ment ion. Several games were decided by two or th ree point s, and the team showed evidence of capa ble handling by Coach Luther McCown. Winona finished in fifth place in the conference, winning four games while losing six.

"W" Club The " W" Club is an idealistic organization consisting of monogram winners in varsity sports such as football, baseball, basket ball, track, tennis, and golf. The club's two fundamental purposes are: to instill in the student body the true ideals of sportsmanship in athletics, and to stimulate interest and enthusiasm in all types of sport competition. The club sponsors various events through out the year including the Homecoming reunion banquet, decorations at Maxwell field and benefit sports contests. Officers of the club this past year were: Wayne Kannel, president; Charles Reps, Vicepresident; Pat Mclean, secretary-treasurer; Dr. Glen E. Galligan, sponsor. The intramural board, representative panel of men, governs all intramural sports and arranges schedules in the various sports for non -varsity squads.

Baseball Baseball, the national game, was back in the spotlight at T. C. Several promising college rookies were uncovered. Intermingled with the staunch lettermen, they presented a formidable foe for their opponents. Although certain departments show need for improvement the lookout as a whole was better than last year. The squad is working outdoors and at this time have made an impressionable showing with their hitting and fielding. All positions are two or three men deep, and with a hit of luck T. C. could have a very successful season.

Off to a running start

Track and Tennis T.C.'s track prospects looked pretty good at the time the annual went to press, with cindermen turning out at Maxwell Field early in the quarter. Coach Brodhagen also saw a rather large squad of men reporting for spring football, scrimmaging now to get in shape for next fall. Lake courts as well as college courts were kept occupied as men got tennis fever early in the season. Arrangements were being made to formulate tournaments and teams in the English gam~.
