Doors Open During this year at Winona State College many doors have been opened for us. The faculty provided doors that led to added knowledge and enlightenment. Class membership opene<;l the door to the development of cooperation and group spirit. As we entered the doors opened. Through participation in campus organizations we gained enthusiasm for leadership, religious satisfactions, and the ability to accept definite obligations. Sports activities led to the opening of doors in the development of sportsmanship, personal growth, and friendship. Social adjustment, character development, and the art of getting along with others came as we entered the doors to student life. As these doors opened for us we gained in experience and knowledge.

President Nels Minne.

Administration Winona State College is the new name of our co llege which was brought about by legislative action this past year. Another highlight of the administrative program was the acceptance of the graduate school by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Expansion of the present facilities and evolving of the curriculum to meet the demands and needs of futu re teachers is the aim of the administration. A complete building program which eventually will benefit every college department and dormitory resident was begun, with plans for even further expansion in the future. Dr. Nels Minne, college president, heads the administrative council.

With the Key Sort each student has a personal history card which contains information such as student class number, course number, session, year, and major and minor field.

Sophomores With memories of their initiation still fresh in their minds, the sophomores set out to orient the incoming freshmen to the ways of campus life. The new "capping ceremony" proved entertaining and successful, as fresh donned their beanies. A serene, misty atmosphere pervaded as students enjoyed the sophomores' Christmas dance. G.

Freshmen " Enthusiastic" wou ld best describe the freshmen who arrived early in September to begin their college careers. The usual rebellious attitude showed through during initiation, but the espritde-corps of the class was put to good use later when they sponsored the Sock Hop. Fortunately, many fresh soon realized that there is more to college life than the gay, superficial social w hirl and that there are serious goals to strive for. Freshman class officers: M. Engrav, secretary-treasurer; N. Mills, vice¡president; G. Johnson, president.

To serve all of the students both as a group and as individuals - is one way of defining the duty of student government. The 1956- 57 Representative Council, in attempting to do this, worked on two major projectsrevising the student association constitution and changing the student government representative body to a commission. Although these changes did not have any noticeable immediate effect, it is hoped by student commission members t h a t the changes will have the long range effects of strengthening the student government and making it more efficient.

Orientation Team Given the task of acquainting the incoming freshmen with college life~ the orientation team began preliminary planning in the spring of the p revious year in order to provide an adequate program for the beginning of Fall quarter. Informal dances and social hours were held, with a tour of Whitewater State Park, a picnic, and recreation as an added attraction. In addition to this, the team assisted with freshmen registration, assemblies, and counseling tests. College deans acted as advisers to the team. Getting to know you -

FOOTBALL The 1956 footbal l season showed a marked improvement over last season. The Warriors came through with a very respectable 5 won, and 3 lost record. After winning the first five ballgames played, they then dropped the last three of the season. Wins were posted over Stout, Mankato, Bemidji, Moorhead, and Northland, good for the conference championship. St. Cloud was the only conference team to defeat Winona. Although the Warriors lost to St. Cloud in the final conference game of the season, they still won the Conference championship. St. Cloud, which had beaten Moorhead, 40-0, was forced to forfeit that game to Moorhead, because of the

use of an ineligible player. This forfeit, coupled with a tie game with Mankato, left St. Cloud. wi th two wins, one loss, and one tie. The Warriors finished with th ree wins, and one loss, which gave them the undisputed conference championship. So after a l apse of many years, the championship trophy wi l l once again stand in Memorial Hall. Non-conference defeats were suffered at the hands of River Falls and Whitewater. The outlook for 1957 is very bright, as the Warriors will lose only three seniors via graduation. Those who will not be back for another season are Co-Captain Bill Ziebell, Ron Rubado, and Ray Hoveland. Co· Captain All • Conference Little All- American Dave Mertes

Touchdown! That lineplay looks rough.



Winona 26 Stout 13 In the opening game of the season the Warriors traveled to Menominee, Wisconsin, to take on Stout's Blue Devils. led by Quarterback Jerry Seeman, the Peds fought back from an early 6 to 0 deficit, to bring out a 26 to 13 win. Seeman flashed mid-season form as he passed for two touchdowns and scored one himself. Other touchdowns were registered by Svenningson, Miller and Brown.

A. Svenningson almost in the clear.

Winona 1 Mankato 0 (Forfeit) In the first conference game of the year, Mankato actually beat the Warriors 26 to 6. In doing so, however, Mankato used an ineligible player, which later resulted in a forfeit to Winona. Statistic-wise the Warriors led in all departments except the final score. Winona 13 Bemidji 7 The third game of the season saw the Warriors make their annual northern trip, this year to Bemidji, to take on a very fine Beaver squad. After moving to an early 13 to 0 lead in t he first half, the Warriors put up a very fine defense in the second half and hung on for a 13 to 7 victory. Winona touchdowns were scored by Jerry Ebert, on a long pass from Seeman, and by AI Svenningson, who recovered a fumble in the end zone. Don Segermark provided most of the offensive punch, while laVerne Pieper led the Peds on defense.

W inona 13 Northland 7 In what was supposed to be a "breather" on the schedule, the Warriors had to go all out to edge a stubborn Northland eleven 13 to 7. End Jerry Ebert scored both of Winona's touchdowns early in the game on passes from Wayne Asing and Jerry Seeman. W inona 6 St. Cloud 14 A very fine Winona team battled the St. Cloud Huskies to the final gun before dropping a toug~ 14 to 6 game. For three quarters of the game it looked as if the Warriors were "in", as an early touchdown scored by Don Segermark looked like it might hold up. However in the fourth quarter the Huskies took advantage of a short punt, and finally pushed across a touchdown. The try for the extra point was good and St. Cloud led 7 to 6. St. Cloud's consolation touchdown was scored late in the game.

Winona 12 River Falls 26 River Falls State College handed a very demoralized Warrior "11" their second defeat of the season 26 to 12. On this particular day, River Falls was good, and Winona was bad. This, coupled with some costly errors, enabled the Falcons to breeze to the victory. Winona touchdowns were scored late in the game by Jerry Ebert and AI Myers. Winona 6 Whitewater 9 On the final day of the season, before a Parents' Day crowd, Winona dropped a heart-breaking 9-6 game to Whitewater Col lege. First half play was dominated by the Warriors with the lone score coming on a 30 yard touchdown run by Wayne Asing. In the second half Whitewater took to the air and early in the fourth period scored the tying touchdown. In the waning minutes of the game Whitewater marched to the Warrior 10 yard line, where they kicked the winning field goal.

BASKETBALL The 1956-57 basketball season at Winona State was, as far as the won-lost record indicates, a dismal one. The Peds, coached by Russ Owen, compiled a total of only four wins, against eighteen losses. However, the Warriors played the toughest schedule in the schools' history. Appearing on the non-conference schedule were Western Illinois, lincoln University, South Dakota State, South Dakota University, Loras College, La Crosse State, Stevens Point, and Iowa State Teachers College. The ten freshmen on the squad AI Svenningson passing off to Lee Paul.

gained a great deal of valuable experience throughout the season. Letterwinners on the squad included senior Captain-elect Craig Currier, who was also given honorable mention on the All-Conference team. In addition to Currier, letterwinners were A I Svenningson, who was a unanimous All-Conference selection, and leading scorer in the conference, and Fred Weeman, both juniors; Monte Sprute and Bill Morse, sophomores; Don Klagge, Jon Kaiser, Larry Engle, Don Behrens, and Herb Espinda, freshmen.

The Warriors opened the season by dropping a 73 to 50 decision to South Dakota State, at Brookings, South Dakota. The Warriors returned to open their home season against Western Illinois, one of the finest basketball teams to appear in this area during the entire season. Fighting a spirited battle the Warriors again tasted defeat 84 to 50. Next in line was Stout, and Winona left the court at half-time with a 33-22 lead . But the tables turned, and the game ended with Stout winning 73 to 58. In the fourth game of the season Iowa State Teachers came to Winona, and with AI Svenningson scoring 27 points, the Warriors responded with their first win of the season, 81 to 79. Freshman, Don Klagge came off the bench late in the game and turned in an outstanding defensive game.

Larry Engel

Next the Warriors traveled to La Crosse and won their second game 93 to 77. AI Svenningson tossed in 29 points. South Dakota University was next, and the Warriors lost 88 to 59. Four more defeats followed at Loras College, 76 to 63; Lincoln University, 78 to 62; St. Mary's College, 101 to 87; and Oshkosh, 94 to 83. Stevens Point was next on the calendar with ll straight wins. The Warriors came up with an outstanding ball game to down Stevens Point, 83 to 73. The next night Stout was host to Winona, and the Warriors were defeated, 85 to 69. The conference season opened for the Warriors in a game with St. Cloud at St. Cloud. The Huskies downed the locals, 106 to 84. Moorhead traveled to Winona for our conference home opener and won, 9 1 to 84. The Warriors led at halftime, 39 to 37, and had the lead at various times throughout the second half.

Bemidji was next, and the Beavers pulled out late in the game, wmning 69 to 64. The Warriors then traveled to Mankato to finish the first round of conference action. Mankato won 89 to 74. To open the second round of conference play, the Warriors made their annual northern trip, playing first at Moorhead, and then at Bemidji. At Moorhead the Peds again moved into a lead at halftime, but fell behind during the last minutes. The final score was Moorhead 84 and Winona 75. The next night at Bemidji, the Warriors fell behind, 91 to 57. The Warriors then traveled to Oshkosh for a non- conference affair with the Oshkosh Titans. We lost, in overtime 85 to 81. With freshman Don Behrens leading the way, the Peds put on a terrific rally to tie the game after being behind by as much as 15 points. St. Cloud was next, and we lost, this time 85 to 73. With only two left on the schedule, and only 3 wins on the credit side of the Warriors' ledger, St. Mary's moved into Memorial Hall. In what was supposed to be a bang -up ballgame, St.

Mary's pulled away after a close first half, to win 82 to 64, and for the first time in several years, the inter-city championship returned to St. Mary's. In the last game of the season, Mankato trave led to Winona. Spirits were not high, and the prospect of winning was not too encouraging. With the student body showing more enthusiasm than they showed the entire season, the Warriors came to life. AI Svenningson tossed in 26 points, and Craig Currier, playing his last game for Winona State tallied 2 1. The Peds moved out in front at the start, and stayed there to the finish. The fina l score read 84 for Winona, and 73 for the Indians of Mankato. The outlook fo r next season seems exceptionally good. Nine of the ten letterwinners will be back, and with an added year's experience behind each of them, a successful season should be in store.

Freshman Basketball The Freshman or "B" squad, which was coached by Doug Page and Jerry Seeman, had a relatively successful season. Games were played with Mankato, St. Mary's, La Crosse, and several string independent teams in the area. The squad served as a "farm club" or "feeder" squad to the varsity, and at least half of the squad, at one time or another, were moved up to the varsity

as starters. Among these were Don Klagge, Don Behrens, Jon Kaiser, Larry Engel, and Herb Espinda. Other members of the squad included Gordon Mahoney, Dick Doss, Chuck Gaulke, Keith Nelson, and Lorry Gunhus. Highlights of the season were a one point victory over previously unbeaten Mankato and a revenge victory over St. Mary's.

Wrestling Under the guidance of new head coach Bob Jones, the Warriors achieved a 3-4-1 record in dual meet competition. The Warriors also gained a fifth place finish out of fifteen teams at the Carleton Invitational, and a fourth place spot in the conference meet. Building with only two lettermen from the previous year, Captain Jack Strommer, and Bill Ziebell, Coach Jones gained fine performances from freshmen John De Lozier, Glen Johnson, Dick Berg, John Hempstead, and Curt Nickel. Juniors LaVerne Pieper, and Dean Sanderson also turned in fine bits of wrestling.

Highlights of the season included Captain Jack Strommer's Carleton Invitational Championship, and his unbeaten string of 22 straight wins, which was finally snapped in the conference meet. Also high on the list was the one point victory over Loras College, and the exceptionally fine showing of several new men who until this year had never wrestled. Strommer, Pieper, and Ziebell won second places in the conference. Conditioning seemed to be the general overall factor for the success the team enjoyed.

The 1956 baseball team enjoyed another winning season. The Peds, although they failed to win the Conference Championship, battled right down to the final game. St. Cloud won the championship on the strength of its 13 to 5 victory over the Warriors in the second game of a doubleheader. The Warriors had set the stage for the championship game by downing St. Cloud in the opener, 7 to 3. Many seasoned ballplayers and lettermen returned to the squad. The pitching staff was unusually strong with Jack McGrath, Lee Paul, Bill Schwarz, George Whipple, and John Carter carrying most of the weight. Late in the season, Don Segermark took the mound for the first time. The infield was made up of Bill Wieczorek, at first base, Dick Beberg and Jim Miner, who alternated between second base and shortstop, and Ric Hubbard, a newcomer to the Warrior camp, at third. The outfield had Fred Hoeft in left, Ben Cook in center, and Dale Timm in right. Frank Jaszewski handled the catching. The Peds opened thei r season with their annual southern trip. This year the squad swung down through Missouri, Illinois, and Iowa. St. Louis University won the opener, 7 to 5. Next in line was Quincy College of Illinois. The Warriors split with them, losing the first game 7 to 6, and winning the second 15 to 1. Loras College won two games, 5 to 2 and 6 to 2. Back home, St. Mary's whitewashed the Peds 9 to 0. Sporting a 1-5 record, the Warriors started their come-back with a double win over Mankato, 8 to 1 and 6 to 2. Then came a split with Stout with Winona winning the first game, 6 to 2, and dropping the second, 5 to 3. This game later cost the Warriors a share of the Conference Championship. Next was Eau Claire, where we took a double-header, 3 to 1 and 7 to 2. In the fol lowing game, the Warriors gained revenge by topping St. Mary's, 6 to 4. La Crosse then dumped us, 7 to 3. River Falls fell in a double-header, 5 to 1 and 7 to 0. La Crosse and Upper Iowa h ung successive losses on the Peds, 7 to 2 and 11 to 6, respectively. Carleton was an easy victim, 2 1 to 4, to set the stage for the championship battle against St. Cloud. Winona needed both ends of a double-header to win the championship, while St. Cloud needed only a split. St. Cloud managed the split, and the Warriors had to settle for second p lace. The overall record for the season was 11 wins and 10 losses.

Track With coach Gene Brodhagen leading the Warrior track squad through his last season as track coach, the college was represented by the best squad in recent years to come out of State. For the most pa rt, the track squad did a commendable job all season long in facing the tough competition from Mankato, La Crosse, and River Falls to name a few. In the tough Bi-State and State College Conferences, the Warriors placed a strong fourth, and fifth. Dashmen Jerry Ebert, Delwin Tschumper, and

Roger Krause headed the list of placers, and were very ably supported by Jack Strommer, Joh n Bratrud, King Miller, Jerry Tedrow, and AI Meyers. Ebert was the 100 yard dash champion in both conferences, and Krause the 220 yard low hurdle champion in the Bi-State. With the resignation of Brodhagen came a new coach in the person of Mr. Robert Jones, the wrestling coach this past season, whose job it will be, in part, to build track to a popular and major sport.

Golf The 1956 Winona State Golf Team enjoyed one of its best seasons in some time on the strength of Coach Lyle Arns' five freshmen. Wins were posted over Stout, River Falls, Eau Claire, Bemidji, and Rochester JC. La Crosse, St. Mary's, and Mankato were the only teams to hand the locals defeat. Highlights of the season were the annual Bi-State meet and the Conference Meet. In the Bi-State meet, the Warriors put on a strong finish to end up second behind Mankato.

an 84. In the conference meet the Warriors added another second, again finishing behind Mankato. Jim Jacobs, the Warriors' number one ma n throughout the season, shot three rounds of near par golf to lead Winona. Letter-winners on the squad included Jim Jacobs, Dennis Syverson, Earl Buswell, Doug Page, and Keith Burmeister. Prospects for the 1957 season are very bright with all the returning lettermen back for another season.

Tennis Tennis, after a lapse of several years, was again revived as a spo rt at Winona. Matches were pJayed with Rochester JC, St. Mary's, Mankato, and Stout. Wins were posted over St. Mary's, 9 to 0, and Rochester, twice, by identical scores of 5 to 4. In the conference meet, held at Mankato, the Warriors battled their way to a third place tie. In the Bi-State meet, held at St. Cloud, the Warriors finished a disappointing last. Letterwinners on the squad included Russ Blankenfeld, Bill Kortsch, Bob Luehman, and Gary Evenson. The outlook for the 1957 season looked promising as only senior Bill Kortsch was lost through graduation.



The "W" Club, the men's athletic club on the campus, is composed of letter-winners from all inter-collegiate athletics. During the past year the club again sponsored their annua l fish and chips dinner which was, as it has been in the past, a huge success. The club also operated the concession stand during basketball games. The annual picnic was held late in May, and from all reports, was one of the main "social" events of the year. Officers were president, Bill Ziebell; vice-president, LaVerne Pieper; and treasurer, Jerry Ebert. The physical education staff served as advisers to the club.

A bit of action during a game a t a sports day held in Memorial Hall.

WRA W.R.A. had one of its busiest years, as its members found many activities to keep them occupied . Volleyball was the fall sport, and enough girls turned out to make up six teams. A fast and furious tournament fol lowed, and when the dust had settled, Marian Culbertson's team emerged champions. Basketball took up where volleyball left off, and six determined teams battled it out to the finish. Louise Schneider's team was crowned champions w ith a commanding 10-0 record.

Sportsdays played an important part in t he activities of the group. Winona attended several sportsdays out-of-town and often out-of-state. In addition, the W. R. A. acted as host for several sportsdays. The State Play Day at Duluth presented an opportunity for a busload of Winona Staters to meet W.R.A. members from many colleges throughout the state.

Swim Club members form a water wheel as they practice for "Swim Fantasy".

Swim Club, the club within a club, organized in the fall, and all members began to look forward to the swim show, "Swim Fantasy" which was given March 29. Seasoned members as well as enthusiastic freshmen worked hard to make the show a success. The modern dance group, Orchesis, exercised diligently for body conditioning, and the beat of a drum could be heard keeping time as the girls worked on their dances.

Swim Club members: N. Arnold, P. Podany, M. Tonsager, l. Swearingen, H. Gatzke, 0. Tovson, J. Johnson, D. Ambrosen, B. Plourde.

Among the activities sponsored by W.R.A. are co-ree nights and open swims.
