Winona State Teachers College Winona, Minnesota

this year of the

Territorial Centennial to the

School Children of Minnesota On these children rest the responsibilities of tomorrow's world. From these children we, as teachers, see our responsibilities. Our Minnesota public schools are a melting pot as traditionally American as America itself. Chil dren of all races, nationality backgrounds, and creeds meet on this common ground. As teachers in these schools we have the ideal surroundings to utilize our own experiences on our educational stairway. We desire to realize our responsibilities of educating these children to better goals, greater tolerance, and more realistic understandings as they stand on the threshold of tomorrow.

The Freshman class proved to be one of the most active groups at T.C. this year. Beginning in October, the frosh handled the Homecoming decorations for both the game and the dance. On their own, the freshmen sponsored the Sadie Hawkins dance on November 19, with Roger Challberg as master of ceremonies. Prizes were awarded for the best costumes and beards. The Debate teams were revived by the freshmen and were composed largely of first year students. Freshmen also sponsored the May festival for seniors in area high schools. On joint committees were Richard Kubier, social; Janet Hyde, finance; Janis Peterson, public relations; and Ivan Nienow, Assembly and public functions. Mr. James Becker was adviser.

Representative Council The Representative Council, studen t gove rning body, is the agent through which the Student Association, composed of all T.C. students, seeks attention to pertinent issues of student welfare at the college. The Student Association e lects a president each year, who also serves as Representative Council prexy. James Swenson led the students this year, with the other officers: vice-president, Joe Fennie; sec re tary, Elaine Nienow; and treasurer, James LaChape ll e. Six representatives from each class and two faculty members-Miss Margue rita Steffenson and Mr. L. A Arnold-joined the association officers to make a total of thirty participating in the Representative Council. Because of its limited powers, the Council is largely a discussion group which recommends changes to the administration.

Purple Key

Who's Who

Each year the faculty selects students from the sen1or and graduating sophomore classes to be awarded the Purple Key. Shortly before graduation, announcement is made of membership in this group. Scholarship, character, and interest in college activities are considered. Although the holders of the Purple Key elect no officers and have no meetings, both two year and four year students strive to attain membership in this group. It is the highest honor of the college.

Members of Who's Who were chosen this past fall from the sen1or class by vote of the entire student body except freshmen. Selections for the init1al slate were made by a committee of students and facu lty who considered candidates by the threefold qualifications of scholarship, leadership, and professional potentiality Biographies of members wdl be inc luded in the an nual publication, "Who's Who Among Students in American Un1vers1t1es and Col leges.

The Wenonah Taunts and threats of " Hand in your glossies," "Pay your subscription," and " Get in your assignments," are the obvious evidences of the work of the W enonah Board. But behind the gruffness and urgency of its production are hours of writers' cramps, scissor burns, distasteful pasting, and many headaches. The Wenonah goes to press as a record of school occasions and familiar faces seen in the halls and on the campus.

Young Democrats The Young Democrats club, o rganized in '48 to campaign for the nat1onal and state elections, was composed of thirty- five T.C. students, directed by chairman Phir Pellowski . Before the election, me mbers distributed campaign literature 1n Winona and conducted a local telephone campaign with the cooperation of Winona citizens. Pellowski was a lso county chairman of the senior party, and he rode the visiting Truman train from Winona to Spa rta. Eight de legates represented the college group at the D.F.L. stat e convent ion at Hast ings. Threc -Pellowsk1, Art Ensberg, and John Riesch-we re placed on permanent pre-convention com mittees. Campus members worked for a closer organization with the city Democ ratic group in order to enhance political education, t hereby contnbuting to better government. Glona Gynild was chai rwoman; Violet Jensen, sec re ta ry; and Joh n Riesch, treasu re r. Mr. Luther McCown advised.

Young Republicans Work! talk! argue! convince! Work some more! During the frantic, hectic months preceding the 1948 presidential elect1on, that is just what the members of the Young Republican League did. The value of their efforts was shown in the mock election held on the campus the day of the nationa l polling. W .S.T.C. went out for Dewey. The national defeat of the Republicans, however, did not mean the death of the local group. Instead, they are as energetic as ever, holding meetings to discuss current political situations. At the head of the group were David Malcolm, chairman; Willard Erickson, vice chairman; Betty Stuck, secretary; and Robert Clausen, treasurer. As long as the Republican party exists, this group pledges its loyalty and support.

The purpose of the International Relations club is to better acquaint the members and the entire student body with the problems of the peoples over the globe, and through an understanding of our neighbors, to establish and preserve peaceful international relations. I.R.C. maintains a library of books on present day matters and reta ins a regional affiliation through cooperative conferences. Members have heard several speakers thi s yea r who told of life in their native lands. They were Gunther Hohman of Germany; Madeline Chen of China; Miss Megan Flemington of England; and Christ Krista, a Teachers College student from Albania. Officers were Walter Hohenstein, secnotary-genera l; Le land Larson, assistant secretary general; Marion Rose, secretary-treasurer; and James LaChappelle, publicity manager. The adviser was Mr. James Becker.

Science Club Nuclear fission, endobiotics, and mathematics are subjects that appeal to the members of the Science Club. Made up of science and mathematics majors and minors, the club has the twofok! aim of educating and ente rtaining its mem bers. Among the activities of the club is the sponsorship of the annual Science Night, at which demonstrations are put on by the various departments to show the work carried on here. The annual Science Club trip to Chicago was something the senior members looked forward to. Students visited the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler planetarium, and the Museum of Natural History. The activities of the club this year were guided by David Malcolm, president; Robert Clausen, vice president; Rosalie Critchfield, secretary- treasurer; and Dr. M. R. Raymond and Mr. L. A. Arnold, advisers.

Mendelssohn Club

Perhaps the oldest organization of the campus that is still active is the Mendelssohn Club, the women's choral group. This year the club boasted a membership of twentyfive. Members are selected each fall on the basis of tryouts before the present members; Mr. Walter Grimm, the director; and Miss Agnes Bard, accompanist. A good singing voice, character, personality and scholarship are essentials considered for selection. Practices are held each Tuesday and Thursday at 4:05 in the music tower. Christmas and 'tween season concerts were given both during chapel and at meetings of local civic organizations. Highlight of the season was a spring concert in Somsen auditorium at which the group displayed the climax of a year's work. Sheila Buckingham served as president this year, assisted by Elaine Nienow, vice president; Elaine Krueger, corresponding secretary; Louise Harbo, recording secretary; and Hazel He lleck, treasurer.

You too can sing! Some of us students remember when there was a rash of advertisements beginning, "You, too, can ... " In the case of the Apollo Club, it's true, because all one needs to do to join, is to try out, and presto! you're a member! The Apollo Club is the men's voice organization on the campus. Meeting twice weekly under the direction of Miss Agnes Bard, the club goes through its repertoire and adds new songs to its list. Its wide variety of selections ranges from Fred Waring's arrangement of " Loch Lomond" to sacred music and back to Rodgers and Hammerstein. The club has a feeling of mu t ual taste in music that comes from working together. It has also an ai r of informality that encourages people like Mr. Walter Grimm to walk in at any time to lend a hand . The officers of the club this year were Jay Robinson, president; Gerald Radtke, vice president; and Ray Colwell, secretary-treasurer.

Mixed Chorus Composed of membe rs of th e Mendelssohn and Apollo Clubs, the Mixed Chorus is an organization existing chiefly for the pleasure obtained by the members in the joining of men's and women's voices in song. Under the direction of Mr. Walter Grimm, and accompanied by Miss Agnes Bard, the group made several public appearances during the yea r. Chief among them was the presentation of the Christmas cantata, " The Shepherds of Bethlehem," December 13, in Somsen Auditorium before the college audience. Soloists were Mary Dean, Elaine Sanden, and Leon Peters. The cantata was also presented before the Rotary Club of Winona and at Altura, Minnesota, as a part of the Christmas program there. Presiding over the forty-nine member chorus was James Werner, assisted by Sylvia Lanning, vice president, and J ean Currier, sec ret a ry-treasurer.

Mason Music Club All majors and minors in music are members of the Mason Music Club. Under the able leadership of president John Raphael, the monthl y meetings, the past year proved to be constructive and entertaining. Subjects of musical interest were discussed and the club heard solo and ensemble performances by members and talks on music. The club stimu lated interest in local recitals and the concerts which are sent by the Community Concert Association. Because of their inte rest in public school music, six students and Mr. Walter Grimm attended the Minnesota Music Educators Association convention in Minneapolis. While there they saw Dimitri Mitropolis direct a rehearsal of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. William Bunn was vice president; Shirley Hall, secretary treasurer, and M1ss Agnes Bard and Mr. Walter Grimm, advisers.

Composed of thirty-five members, the Wi ¡ nona T. C. Band is under the direction of Mr. Fred Heyer. Band membership is open to any college student who plays an instrument; beginners are welcomed also. During the '48-'49 season, the group played at football games and at a chapel concert. In the Winona Winter Carnival parade the band won second prize in the marching unit division . Meeting four days a week, the band rehearses for a 45 minute period. James Cronen was president; Fred Luchau, vice president; Elaine Nienow, secretary treasurer; and Clarence Lee, sergeant at arms.

Rhythm Masters Organized in 1948 "just for fun," the Rhythm Masters have developed into a group of 17 members. Under the direction of Mr. Fred Heyer of the music department, the group played for social dances and chapel programs. During the spring quarter, the band made several tours to Minnesota schools, presenting concerts. Included in the swing band were former professional musicians who came to T.C. to complete their education. Featured in the band were trombonist Lois Cronen, trumpeteers Jim Cronen and Douglas Wood, and Mr. Heyer. Although the b..md stresses modern music, it also plays classical selections; only experienced musicians are accepted.

Coach E. N. Brodhagen


Football The Warriors got off to a fast start by tipping St. Mary's to win the 1948 city championsh1p. However, the rest of the season proved fruitless as far as victories were concerned, du~ to a plague of injuries. At one stage of the campaign, Coach Brodhagen faced the task of replacing seven first stringers who were on the injured list. Although the Warriors ran into much stronger competition this season because of the great improvement shown by the other confe rence teams, they put up a good scrap in eve ry game, giving the fans an exciting autumn. Those who will be greatly missed by the Warriors next year are "Tank" Clausen, "Soup" Winb lad, Mel Schaefer, Bill Corchran, Wayne Nash, and Joe Yantes.

Basketball The Warriors made strides in their comeback on the court, bettering their 1947-48 record by capturing seven games. The team started off with a bang by winning six of their first eight games. Loss of three regulars at this point was a blow from which the team did not recover. Those winding up their cage careers this year were "Soup" Winblad, Virgil Clausen, and Sonny Dahl. George Vondrashek, Warrior captain, led the team in scoring with 334 points and was also chosen as center on the all-confere'nce second team . Vondroshek rebounds against St. Mary's with the aid of DuBois and Worweg.

P. E. Club

All majors and minors in women's physical education are members of the Women's Physical Education Club. As this is a professional club, the monthly meetings are planned to be educational. Speakers bring new views on this field of education. Frequent work meetings have as their projects the making of lanyards, soccer boards, and other useful phy. ed. articles.

For two years, these girls have been in charge of concessions at all home athletic games. Clyda Dressen was president; Jan ice Sabotta, vice president; and Kathryn Swanson, secretary-treasurer.

Congratulations to the Graduating Class and may they at all times continue to be and TEACH TRUE AMERICANISM. We are in TWO kinds of business.

1st. We are in the business of Selling AMERICANISM, but not alone Americanism but Freedom. One can be an American but must believe in freedom of speech, religious liberty, in our public school system and the right to vote as we please.

TOO MANY of those who claim to be Americans are going to the left and are actually supporting Communism. We live in the best country in the world and have the best of everything that money can buy. Our workers are being well paid and can do with their money what they please.

UNDER COMMUNISM The people are told what to say and write, where to work (and not a 40 hour week) but from dawn to dark and usually in the making of war materials to destroy if possible those countries that believe in democracy. 2nd. We are also in the business of producing washed sand and gravel either to be loaded on trucks or on railroad cars.
