~ Missionaries in Eight States 


\ Write Letters to Crusade 
wt Expressing Thanks 






*) Grateful letters from missionaries 
“hroughout the United States came to 


SS Osclarke last week thanking the Catho- 


“ic Student’s Mission Crusade for help- 
ing to make their Christmas a joyous 
Sone. The Society sent more than 
fourteen boxes to Negro, Mexican and 
Indian Missions in North and South 
Dakota, Alabama, New Mexico, Ne- 
braska, Montant, Louisiana and 
rgia. 

cae was raised this year by sell- 
ing fruit cakes and caramels donated 
> by the Home Economics Department. 
‘ The sale of Patna seals and individual 
contributions also helped swell the 
fund. For as many as fifteen years 
“S. the Crusade has sent boxes to the 
same Missions. Mary Baxter, presi- 
+ dent of the organization, reports that 
each box contained clothing, jewelry, 
toys, candy, religious articles, nuts and 
popcorn as well as a Spiritual Bou- 
quet for the intentions of the mis- 
sionaries and their assistants. 

Father Harold Purcell writes from 
Montgomery, Alabama: 

“Tr is easy for me to tell you I have 
received your generous donation of 
clothing. My difficulty is to find 
words to express my gratitude. I felt 
that the donation you have sent has 
two values: The first is its face value 
which can be counted in many val- 
ues, the second is its spiritual value, 
that is, the special sacrifice which you 
have made in giving it and the Cath- 
olic spirit that has prompted you to 
make the sacrifice.” 

Father’s Purcell’s Mission is in a 
Negro quarter of Montgomery called 
The City of St. Jade. He and his 


co-workers maintain a school of 276

Five Seniors 


Five seniors who are majoring in 
Commerce selected Secretarial Work, 
Teaching and The Civil Service Field 
as themes for a discussion Sunday 
evening, January 19 at a meeting of 
students of Commerce in the Activity 
Room. 

The importance of choosing the 
right courses in college in prepara- 
tion for mecting school board require- 
ments by prospective commerce teach- 
ers was emphasized by Mafalda Lay- 
man. Accounting, economics, business 
letter writing, business law, American 
government, marketing, salesmanship 
and advertising were the recommended 
courses, Mafalda also stated that the 
posture, personality, and the dress of 
every applicant for a teacher’s posi- 
tion was carefully considered by the 
school board. 

Marjorie Murphy discussed the 
qualities necessary in the ideal secre- 
tary. Accuracy, responsibility, initia- 
tive are the three requisites for ef- 
ficiency, Marjorie said, but a pleasing 
voice and graciousness were necessary 
for office success. Rita Oyen gave a 
selection of character sketches of Well- 
known Secretaries. Among them was 
Miss LeHand, private secretary to 
President Roosevelt. 

Data on the Civil Service was pre- 
sented by Betty Lou Sprung, who de- 
clared that typing and shorthand were 
essentials, “Preparation for passing 
the exams, the Bilingual, Translator, 
Student Aid and Junior Professional 
Assistanceship, should start in col- 
lege,” Betty Lou said.

Due to the enthusiasm with which

quests of commercial students, a sec- 
ond meeting will be held in February 
in charge of the juniors.

An essay contest was the main is- - 
sue of the last Sodality meeting held!’ 
in the Mt. St. Joseph Assembly Hall 
Tuesday evening, January 15. Other 
business matters were also presented 
and have been taken up by the or- 
ganization. 

Clarke will be the theme of the 
essays to be submitted in the Sodal- 
ity contest. Subjects include: Sports, 
Campus Activities, School Traditions, 
and What the Clarke Girl Wears. 
The two judged best will be sent to 
The Catholic Women’s World and 
money prizes will also be awarded the 
winners. All entries must be given to 
Virginia Jans, Sodality Prefect, before 
February 11.

In answer to a petition made by the 
Reverend Robert Ludwig, S.J. of 
Saint Mary's College in India, the 
Clarke Sodality has sent three sub- 
scriptions to Catholic magazines to 
him to aid in his mission work with 
the Indians. The magazine subscrip-|' 
tions were to The Sign, The Catholic]| 
Mind, and The Messenger of the Sa- 
cred Heart. In addition to this, So- 
dalists will begin work soon on chap-}; 
lain kits for army priests. 

The next Sodality meeting is in 
charge of the English Department 
with Betty Lou Winks as chairman } 
of the program.

" NUMBER 4 








City Schools \/ 
Will Assist 


In Project 





Department Head Announces 
Plans for Student Teaching 
During Semester 





Students of elementary and secon- 
dary education will place special em- 
phasis on student teaching in the lab- 
oratory schools of the city this com- 
ing semester, according to Sister Mary 


Conciline, B.V.M., education depart- 


ment head. 


The prospective teachers will do 
their work in the regular laboratory 
schools, St. Joseph’s Academy, St. 
Anthony’s, and St. Patrick’s, while 
other secondary schools will cooper- 
ate when the need arises. Public school 
music and speech majors have already 
had a number of weeks experience in 
this work during the first semester. 

Members of the secondary group 
plan to handle units in both their 
major and minor fields in addition to 
the general participation as assistants 
to the room teachers, This assistance 
consists of observing actual teaching, 
correcting papers, and even assuming 
responsibility for tests. 

At present, the education workroom 
shows busy students planning units, 
arranging diagnostic test equipment, 
and collecting visual material, such < 
pictures, diagrams and graphs. 
are also being afforded the opportu 
ity for participation in play 
activities, story-telling at the 
Library, and assisting in the 
nursery school with the pur; 





and 


acquainting them with child | 
its needs. 
The study of transportation and 


safety education at the different lev- 
els now occupies the attention of the 
elementary class. 

Secondary education majors are di- 
vided into units representing several 
fields, among them being general sci- 
ence, mathematics, English, and social 
studies. 

The education department feels that 
with the preparation these activities 


I] give, the prospective teachers should 


have a new attitude toward subject 
matter and child nature as they walk 


‘into their classrooms. 





Music Clubs Unite 
In Spring Cantata 





Intricate scale passages, trills, and 
runs drift from the conservatory in 
preparation for the production of the 
cantata, Light, which has been selected 
for the annual spring program. The 


4 effective duo-piano accompaniment was 


written by Richard Kountz and the 


A| lyrics by Frederick Baxter Brooks. 


Several lighter numbers that are be- 
ing prepared for a spring concert are 
The Dance by Moskowski, inspired by 
a graceful waltz; Rachmaninoft’s 
Flood of Spring, which has a heavier 
motif; Pretense, by Clokey, a humor- 
ous number describing with staccatos 
the movement of a clock; The Alpha- 
bet and the harmonically rich Alleluia 
by Mozart. 


The choir has begun preparation 
for the Lenten season with Palestrina’s 
Tenebrae Facta Sunt, O Bone Jesu, 
and Benedictus; Giovanni Croce’s In 
Monte Olivete and Adoramus Te by 
Perti, contrapuntal works of fifteenth 
century composers. 

Members of the choir include: So- 
pranos—Betty Powers, Patricia Sulli- 
Mary Margaret Broghammer, 
Helen Hermes, Cecelia Bacom, and 
Beth Brown. Altos—Mary Rita Ehr- 
hardt, Mary Denilauler, and Kathleen

Music Major 
Radio Guest 
On Program 


Once again Clarke was represented 
over the radio networks in the person 
of Patricia Sullivan, class of 743, when 
she appeared as guest soloist on the 
weekly Novena program, An Hour 
With the Queen of Heaven, which 
was broadcasted over station WCFL, 
Chicago, at 8 o’clock Friday evening, 
January 3. Her vocal selection was 
the Ave Maria by Rosewig, a mezzo 
soprano lyric. 








Novena Notes, a nationwide publi- 
cation, carried the following comment: 
‘Featured tonight on the Novena 
broadcast will be lovely Patricia Sul- 
lican, whose mezzo-soprano lyrics have 
thrilled so many listeners through ra- 
dio station WKBB in Dubuque. 

Youthful Miss Sullivan is the 
daughter of Dr. Harold P. Sullivan 
whom you will recall as guest-an- 
nouncer on the program of September 
6, 1940. She is a student at Clarke 
College where her major is public 
school music. 


Faculty Members 
Judge Contest 


Sister Mary St. Clara, B.V.M., and 
Sister Mary Urbana, B.V.M., of the 
Clarke Home Economics Department 
were judges for the crochet spread 
contest which took place Wednesday 
afternoon, January 22 on the mezza- 
nine of the Roshek store in Dubuque. 
Mrs. J. B. Lyon, 1836 Ellis street, 
completed more than three inches of 
work to receive the title of “Lady 
Nimble-Fingers’ and a_ prize of 
$25.00. 

The contest was scheduled for 3 
o'clock when Miss Katherine Kelly, di- 
rector of the needlework department, 
read the rules and gave the signal for 
the contestants to begin. Approximate- 
ly one hundred women took part in the 
event which was marked by the swing 
of many needles, the pull of fresh 
thread and complete silence. 

During the week previous, experts 
and beginners in needlecraft who an- 
ticipated entry into the contest, were 
given information concerning speci- 
fied thread and needles and were 
shown the required stitch. Days of 
Practice and subsequent perfection in 
fashioning the rows of stitches pre- 
ceded the hour of needlework. 





Staff announcer and commentator 
Judge Lambert K. Hayes will intro- 
duce Miss Sullivan.” 

Dubuque radio listeners have heard 
Patricia on the series of broadcasts, 
WINGS, presented from the Clarke 
College studios over station WKBB 
last year. Her ability in vocal and 
instrumental music has been recog- 
nized in the course of her many ap- 
pearances on the Clarke stage. She 
offered a vocal selection in the annual 
Christmas cantata and was honored 
as soloist on the Workshop presenta- 
tion of the Radio Club. 

As a sophomore at Clarke, she is 
majoring in public school music with 
a minor in science. Other organiza- 
tions with which she is affiliated are 
the Women’s Athletic Association and 
the Student Leadership Council.

That First May Be Last 


HE echoes of a stirring address have 

reverberated to the remotest recesses 

of the earth and a nation has vi- 
brantly responded again to a new epoch 
in America’s destiny, Each succeeding 
declaration through the archives of time 
has inspired joy in a difference of plans 
and leaders, and fear in untried meth- 
ods, and yet there is a note, nay, much 
more than a note—a prayer—which has 
lent itself to the greatest inaugural in- 
spirations, on which, indeed, rests the 
very foundation of this glorious democ- 
racy. But many times, and especially 
today, this strain is overlooked or ig- 
nored by those who wish to formulate 
a policy for this country and who look 
for a basis, a permanency on which to 
plan. 


When these United States formulated 
a Constitution and sealed its laws with 
ties of blood they summoned their great- 
est leader to accept for the first time, 
the office of President. Have the war- 
mongers of today passed over the whis- 
Per of those phrases invoking the Al- 
mighty God, ‘' that His benedic- 
tion may consecrate to the liberties and 
happiness of the people of the United 





States, a government instituted by 
themselves for these essential pur- 
poses)...” 


Or when Jefferson defined a democ- 
racy with its majority-minority rights 
and the blessed tolerance of its princi- 
ples, why have the blind Individualists 
of today discounted the final offering 
he made when he said, “And may that 
Infinite Power which rules the destinies 
of the universe lead Our councils to 
what is best, and give them a favorable 
issue for your peace and Prosperity ?”” 

“If the Almighty Ruler of Nations, 
With His eternal truth and justice, be 
On your side of the North, or on yours 
of the South, that truth and that jus- 
tice will surely prevail by the judgment 
of this great tribunal of the American 
Thus came the reiteration of 
the lips of a President Who

exclaimed, “God helping me, J will 
fail them, if they will but counse] A 
Sustain me!”’ E 


as the Solidarity of 
America in her dreams, her plans and 
and foremost came 


the dedication of America in her entirety 


to her Creator, 


And today? The radios carried that

Fact in Fable 


HE French had a writer who in 

turn had a name for it, but he was 

more poetic in its expression than 
we could ever have been. In one of the 
FABLES which La Fontaine wrote, Soc- 
rates was quoted as saying, “There is 
nothing more common than the name 
and nothing more rare than the thing. 
We mean the same when we warn 
against being deceived by appearances. 
“The thing itself is not what matters; 
it is the principle of the thing,’”’ we say. 
The expressions are familiar to us; we 
need no fabulist to draw the moral for 
us, 

However, an example from La Fon- 
taine will serve to illustrate our point 
to better advantage. Among his famous 
fables is one bearing out the fact that 
it is the robe of the magistrate which 
merits respect and not necessarily the 
magistrate himself. Unfortunately, the 
prevalent tendency of those times is 
One common to all mankind in all ages. 
Occasionally the Magistrate felt it was 
himself who merited distinction rath 
than the office he filled. As the res 
those under the Magistracy becorn ig 
aware of his attitude toward his po- 
sition, would develop an anti-attitude 
in turn. These too, forgetting that it 








was not the individual but the post, 
chose to disregard his rightful jurisdic- 
tion. Both attitudes Were harmful in 
their extremes—but both could have 
been modified had each seen in the mag- 
istrate the station and not the man. 


The remedy for any set of extremes 
is generally compromise—wherein both 
factions “‘give an inch” and thereby 
come two inches closer together on es- 
sentials, In compromise, then it would 
be well for the student ‘‘magistrates’’ to 
look to the significance of their robe of 
office—and for the students under the 
Magistracy to look to the office repre- 
sented by the robe. Another Great Com- 
Promise? Could be!

vies Roosevelt ceased chatting about youth

quire why the Republican members of Sa ecees 
had not cheered her husband’s speech. e 
found “shocking and terrifying” what seemed 
to her “an act of childish spite’. Incidentally, 
the general Washington feeling is ‘that Mrs. 
Roosevelt overstepped herself a bit in criticiz- 
ing Congressional Republicans who did not ap- 
plaud the President. Many fele that although 
noted for her tolerance (?) she seemed intol-

the scarcity of GOP approval at the speeches’ 
end. By way of explanation Republicans point 
out that many who would applaud the princi- 
ples of the four freedoms Mr. Roosevelt em-

the aim of enforcing them “everywhere in the

During the interims of time when 
news is being relayed from strategic 
positions to a waiting world, the Op- 
portunity of slipping a few points to 
the public from the book front takes 
©) its place in the international spot- 
¥ light. 

In view of this, what could be more 
important now than a realization that 
we are at this very moment in the 
midst of a great Catholic revival but 
F. J. Sheed can tell you more about 
it in Sidelights on the Catholic Re- 
vival containing selections from arti- 
cles which have appeared with the 
Sheed and Ward official seal on the 
books marketed. It is a brief but il- 
luminating glimpse of the unusually 
good Catholic literature that has been 
written in the last twelve or fifteen 
years and touches nearly every great 
= name in this great movement, 


oy The present war started a new trend 
of thought among anxious individuals 
x who are still a bit nonplussed over its 
tragic reality and to these individuals 
lke and others interested in a gem of 
prophetic wisdom, is recommended 
The End cf the Armistice by G. K, 
Chesterton. It is startling to find a 
clear-sighted individual who can keep 
Me, up with the kaleidoscopic events 
* Foy whirling from the war-machines to- 
day but it becomes a miracle of per- 
spicacity when one realizes that some- 
where in the middle twenties the 
mind of a man was dominated by 
this war and, what is more, he saw 
it not as possible or probable, but on 
its way and certain to arrive. 





Turning aside for a moment to 
consider the scope and influence of 
the stage, a book with the intriguing 
, title, Theatre for Tomorrow demands 
attention in this new awakening. 
Three historical plays are presented 
in the light of the modern spiritual 
resurgence and the conceptions of fu- 
ture drama with these succeed in 
Proving the time'‘ess quality of the 
true theatre, which is yesterday, to- 
day and tomorrow all in one. 

Of more than Passing interest is 
the diminutive collection of New Zea- 
land Poems by Eileen Duggan, no:

appealing verse 


Amateur dramatists will herald the 
Art and Craft of Play Production by 
Bernard Hewitt, written in a popular 
style for the needs of the amateur 
theatre. Its outstanding contribution 
in a discussion of play structure and 
the usage of production materials will 
lure the dramatic artist or producer 
while the copious illustrations of ex- 
quisite settings which have been used 
in connection with other presenta- 
tions, will entice many a lay reader, 


Kenneth Roberts, noted for his 
American historical fiction, has 
achieved his latest success in Oliver 
Wiswell, presented in the Revolution- 
ary setting with the loyalist cause 
backgrounding the swift action and 
colorful characterization of a stirring 
novel, 


F. W. Foerster in his Europe and 
the German Question carries us back 
to the seething inferno on the Euro- 
Pean continent and probes the u'ti- 
mate causes of conflict in this analysis 
of Germany’s true mission—not the 
dominator but the bond of union, 
not tyrant but partner—so that a pos- 
sible peace of the future is shown, 


Retrogressing to outstanding figures 
of the past, Carl Van Doren has 
crowned his many achievements with 
a Pulitzer Prize biography, Benjamin 
Franklin, and that it was of a great 
man by a great man, may truly be 
said. The words have warmth and 
vigor as the author treats of the boy 
walking Philadelphia streets, the 
young printer, “Poor Richard,’ the 
man who invented stoves and light- 
ning rods and the grand patriot de- 
voted to his country. Here is a big 
book filled with invaluable episodes 
for discerning individuals. 


Thus present-day crises and sew 
angles on the past are filled with lit- 
erary angles which have been devel- 
oped for the student who would real- 
ize the significance of these events in 
the dawn of a great Catholic era.

CLARKE COURIER 
ABC Series | 
For Kitchen’ 


Present “| 


By MARY JANE McDONNELL 


The old year ushered in a new one, 
the arrival of belated Winter gave the 
world a mantle of snow, revolutionary 
resolutions were made and discarded 
within a few hours; but, through all 
these changes, the Kitchen of Tomor- 
row remains the model of Dubuque- 
land’s culinary experts, the Sage Voice 
of Savory Viands calling out to a 
hungry world. 

In the alphabetic series, the A-B-C’s 

continued to be juggled. S:rcamlined 
versions of last year’s favorite dishes 
appeared from a single letter like 
rabbits from a hat. Inspired by the 
“frolic architecture” outside, “I’’ be- 
came ice, then ice cream—with all its 
variations. The broadcast of Janu- 
ary 8 suggested plain ices, and sher- 
bets, frappes, and America’s favorite 
@ssert, ice cream, introduced a cen- 
tury ago by Dolly Madison, made 
more appealing to 1941 tastes by the 
addition of crushed candy, pepper- 
mint, and pecan. 





Marking an innovazion of culinary 
literature, the demonstration of Jan- 
uary 15 proved that “J” stands for 
juices, jellies, junket and jello—those 
“extras” that make eating a pleasurc. 

The very essence of edibility was 
Provided in the exhibit of jelly roll 
panocha. Savory lamb and bacon 
whirls with mint jelly teased the appe- 
tites of those attending the Mt. St, 
Joseph Assembly Hall. Junker, con- 
sisting of frosting, fudge, ice cream,

cocktails utilizing the lowly cranberry 
and the more easily secured cit 
fruits were emphasized as bei

Offer Poise 
To Students

Numerous piano se'ections, at- 
tempted rhythm by a line of eager 
collegians — various results — a jovial 
laugh — another attempt — another 
laugh—then, perfect timing—grace, 
beauty, and finally, acquisition of 
rhythm by a line of exhausted but 
satisfied collegians. 

The above scene is a frequent 
one in Clarke’s gym class with thc 
introduction of each new dance un- 
der the supervision of the physical 
director, Miss Constance Zierden. 

One of the most difficult to per- 
fect, and certainly one of the most 
graceful of all the arts, dancing, in- 
volves that litheness of body and light- 
ness of tread that gives the individ- 
ual poise and beauty. 

Temporarily devoted to - dancing, 
the various gym classes have learned 
many of the folk dances, since the 
culture and characteriszics of the for- 
eign peoples can best be interpreted 
through the dances that were aa in- 
tegral part of their everyday life. 

“Dancing,” concedes Miss Zierden, 
“has always been a universal language 
-..and I consider it one of the 
highest arts... the painter has his 
picture ... the sculptor his ctatue, 
but the dance has that perfect co- 
ordination of the body thar is 
achieved in neither of the other arts.” 

Meeting with the most approval of 
those which have been introduced is 
that dance typical of Scotland and 
its people, The Highland Fling. This 
involves intricate foot movement, per- 
formed simultaneously with hand ges-

Wander: 


By JEAN O’LEARY 

Fast dwindling days and the new 
semester bring the seniors into the 
college limelight again, for in a very 
short while they will be crossing their 
“Rubicons’’, 

Conversation drifts from recitals to 
projects, from teaching to theses, 
from graduate work to interneship. 
Heads are bent in serious concentra: 
tion in the laboratories and voices are 
raised in vocal practice hours in che 
conservatory, Your wandering re- 
porter dashed away for a few min- 
utes and caught these college “celeb- 
rities” off-guard. Here’s a pinhead 
report of her findings! 

A study in combined relaxation and 
recreation was Alice Lamb, who was 
found knitting maroon sweaters for 
the Red Cross in a quilted satin house- 
coat with a pastel print on white back- 
ground. Alice, a Social Service major 
with a minor in English and History, 
plans to take Medical Social Service 
work, 


Dressed for town in a vernon green 
pinpoin: corduroy suit and white baby 
blouse was Mary Margaret Brady, 
Matching green shade saddle shoes 
added that “correct”? look. Peg is a 
Sociology major and a Home Eco- 
nomics minor. A position in a social 
agency in Wichita, Kan., is her de- 
sire for next year, 

Virginia Jans was seated at her 
typewriter typing magazine subscrip- 
tions which are India-bound. “Dink” 
is majoring in Home Economics with 
a minor in Science. She hopes to get 
a commercial position. Listening to 
the radio and reading mail was Mar- 
gery Murphy, a commerce major and 
sociology minor. She is planning on 
an office position. 

Betty Powers paused for a moment 
in the “Subway’”’ to say that she will 
receive a major in Social Science and 
a minor in Elementary Education. 
Betty claims she will teach next year. 
Another Social Science major and 
Education minor is Marjorie Keegan, 
who hopes to get a position in pri- 
mary teaching. 

A commercial position at the State 
Capitol in Springfield, IIlI., is Mafalda 
Layman’s ambition. “Muff” is a

as her goal. Three Home Economics 
majors in deep discussion were Ruth

All intend to take their interneship 
in dietetics.

y |New Dances Skating Rink 


Gala Scene 
January 14 


Laughing, chattering and singing 
gaily, the freshmen boarded buses 
headed toward the skating rink for 
their class skating party Monday eve- 
ning, January 14. The class officers 
predicted that this was only the be- 
ginning of an interesting and fun- 
filled program to be carried through 
the new year, 

The students left the college at 6:30 
and returned to the Activity Room of 
the residence hall at 9:30 for refresh- 
ments. Sandwiches and cocoa were 
served. 


Class officers, Mary Balster, presi- 
dent, Elizabeth Murphy, S. L. C. rep- 
resentative, Betty Garrison, vice-presi- 
dent, Betty Ann Willging, secretary, 
and Elizabeth Buddeke, treasurer, 
comprised the committee sponsoring 
the party, 


Mothers of the city students were 
chaperons for the evening. They 
were, Mrs. Karl L. Shrup, Mrs. Jo- 
seph J. Geisler, Mrs. Charles H. 
Reckord and Mrs, Frank J. Shlueter. 


Fashion favorites for the evening 
ranged from plaids and pullovers to 
taffeta lined skating skirts with pastel 
cardigans. Terry Paul skated in a 
bay-leaf green, gored skirt with a tan 
shirt and chocolate brown sweater. 

ary Alice Egelhof wore a natural 
corduroy jumper with a white, long- 
sleeved sport shirt. Virginia McDer- 
mott chose a wine, shetland wool 
skirt and windsor blue cardigan, while 
Elizabeth Buddeke topped her brown 
skirt with a dusty pink Jerkin on 
which “SIS” was appliqued in du- 
bonnet. Kathleen Cassidy waltzed in 
a princess style, plaid frock with a 
sailor collar and a red, red tic. Phyl- 


sorter Peeks

minor. Marian Mondi, who is major- 
ing in commerce also and minoring in 
English, plans to hold a_ secretarial 
position in Chicago. Another com- 
merce major is Betty Lou Sprung 
with a minor in history. We stopped 
her in the residence hall. She looked 
casual in a brown tailored silk crepe 
dress with patch pockets and three- 
quarter length sleeves. ‘tA Civil Ser- 
vice position in Washington is my 
aim,” answered Betty Lou, Rita Oyen 
is preparing for a teaching career. 
Commerce is her major and Social 
Science is her minor, 


Seated around a “special” table in 
the tea room we found a group of 
Dubuque seniors discussing plans for 
next year. Mary Baxter, who is a 
Social Science major and an English 


and Education minor, will teach, An- 
other Social Science major is Ruth 


Powers. She is minoring in Elemen-

Petite Jeanne Rastatter in voicing 


her views gave her major as music, 
her minor as elementary education, 
and her plans—teaching. Irene Bahl 
has tentative plans for graduate work. 
She is majoring in English and mi- 
noring in Social Science. 


Anne McNally and Maleeta Fleege 


spend most of their time in Science

department are Agnes Anthony, Mary 
Ann Brezicky, and Lorayne Hincker, 
Following a year of interneship, Ag- 
nes will be laboratory technician, 
Mary Ann’s plans are indefinite, while 
Lorayne intends to train in laboratory 
technology, 


Just by luck we happened upon 
Margaret Dion. “Marg” is a Nutri- 
tion major and a Science minor. She 
hopes to take her student interneship 
in Dietetics in Boston, Diligently 
working in the study hall was Mary 
Rita Erhart. With a major in music 
and a minor in English, she will teach, 
Mary McMahon, an English major 
and Latin minor, will also enter the 
teaching field. Josita Baschnagel’s 
Plans for next year include teaching, 
too. She is a Latin major with a it 
nor in English. 

Two Foods and Nutrition Majors

will receive a minor in Science and 
Speech. Her future spells teaching, 
Zella Ruth, a needle enthusiast, 


lla C was 
knitting something in burgundy, 
which, incidentally, was in harmony 


with her burgundy room. 

We could hardly persuade ourselves 
to leave Florence Kelly’s room of 
brown and white. A huge white fluffy 
dog stands guard with a cocked head, 
Dressed in a striking quilted house- 
coat of pale blue and rose print, 
Florence, harpist, told us that she 
would take graduate work at the 
American Conservatory of Music. Lor- 
raine Stute hopes to 0 to the graduate

year are indefinite. Betty Lou Winks 
is an English major with a minor in 
Primary Education, Her plans for
