May one refer to a pretty, darkhaired girl as being a "chip off the
old block?" It should be permissible
to so describe a girl who resembles
her father as much as does Ruth Ann
Charlesworth. A ·few faculty members, and fewer students, who were
at CSC when Gregory Charlesworth
attended school here will agree that
his daughter has the same nice smile
and friendly manner thJt Greg possessed.
Ruth has always lived in New London, where her father is teaching and
In high school, Ruth
played the clarinet; since being in
college, she has forsaken the clarinet
and turned to the piano. She has
been the accompanist for the Men's
Glee club for the past three years.
Ruth said she has enjoyed all of her
college experiences, but feels she has
derived the most satisfaction from
her work with the Men's Glee club
-then she blushed and hastened to
add it wasn't only because of the opportunity to work with so many men
that she enjoyed her glee club work.
It is no secret that Ruth's interest
is in ·one male rather than in droves
of them. Roy Hackbart is the lad
who commands her interest, if
she doesn't drown him by tipping
that canoe over once too often.
Ruth is a senior in the Primary
Division and she is now doing her
practice teaching in the kindergarten
at the Campus school. She enjoys
her work there and hopes to do
kindergarten teaching after graduating- but not for · too long.
Though music has be~n Ruth's
major activity, it has not been her
only one; she is President of WSGA,
a member of the Primary Council,
an active Tau Gamma Beta, and a
member of the honorary music fraternity, Alpha Kappa Rho.
Ruth lived at Nelson Hall for the
first three years of her college life.
Now she is a member of the "Dizzy
Dozen," a group of senior girls who
"have escaped from the routine of
dormitory life," and are now residing
in harmony in their own apa,rtment
at 913 Clark streeet, which is completely furnished and equipped with
all necessities, including a telephone.
"Hack" wasn't available for questioning, but we wonder how he ever
manages to get Ruth on that telephone.
Ruth graduates in June, and says
she will be sorry to leave CSC. We
shall miss her cheery smile and her
friendliness; however, something of
the Charlesworth charm will remain
on our campus, for Ruth's brother
Jack started school here this year as
a freshman. We expect that Jack will
help fill the gap to be left by Ruth

"My freshman and sophomore year
I spent at the University in PreCommerce. When I transferred, all
of my credits didn't, so this is my

enough credits, but not the right
ones." (Carl, we know you just like

Almost all sports interest him.
"After graduation I hope to keep
on with golfing and bowling. It will
be a little hard to keep up basketball and football," he mourned.
"And of course, I will still play
cards." (To keep in shape!)

in his voice, "Our bowling team just

Carl has stayed on Ellis street at

CSC. His roommate this year is Gil
Stasek from Antigo. "He's a , swell
guy," Carl said very sincerely. "They
don't come any better." (Sounds
like they get along without fighting.) "Last weekend Gil, Orv Koepke, Fred Schadewald, and I went on
a birdhunting trip up to Post Lake,"
he mentioned. "We took a deck _o f
cards along just in case the hunting
wasn't any good. Every now and

play off the tie or try our luck hunting. We sure had a swell time," Carl

Dr. Arthur Shireman Lyness has
been a member of the esc faculty
since 1934 and teaches botany,
primarily. Originally from Walnut,
Kansas "a Jay-hawker" (that
means he is a Kansan) he received his early education there. He
received his B.S. in Education from
Kansas State Teachers college, Emporia, Kansas, and did graduate work
in botany at •the University of Chicago and the University of Iowa,
where he obtained his M.S. and Ph.D.
Before coming to esc he taught in
public schools in Kansas, Oklahoma,
Kentucky, and Iowa. Dr. Lyness says
he likes Wisconsin the best though

Political Parties
Represented At CSC
Band To Present Initial
Concert Monday Evening
The Central State College Band,
under the directipn of Dr. Hugo
D. Marple, will present their first
public concert on Monday night,
November 22, in the College Auditorium. This first concert will mark
Dr. Marple's inltial appearance before the public and students as director of the band since his addition
to the faculty.
Dr. Marple and the members of
the band have been working on a
varied program which will include:
"Larghetto" by Handel; "First Suite
for Military ·B and," Holst; "Ballet
"Knightsbridge ~arch," Coates; "The Last
Spring," Grieg; "The Barber of Seville," Rossini; "Fantasy on American Sailing Songs," Grundman;

the above mentioned trumpet trio

Politics have invaded the esc
campus in the form of the Young
Democrats and the Young Republicans.
The Young Democrats started the
year by taking part in the Democratic rally held on the Stevens Point
public square a few weeks ago.
The purpose of this organization
is to support the Democratic party
in Stevens Point and surrounding
area. Their activities cover a wide
range, such as distributing literature,
taking part in rallies, stirring an interest in politics on campus and attending Young Dem conventions. A
special officer, in the person of Joel
Weaver, is the Senior Party representative whose sole job is to establish and keep good relations between
the two groups.
Between 15 and 20 crew members
on the good ship "Democratus" take
orders from Capt. Jerry Madison ;
1st Mate, Jack Frisch; Keeper of the
Log, Janet Madison; Purser, Barbara
Jenkins (P. J . Jacobs H. S.); and
Helmsman, Joel Weaver. The navigators are Albert E. Harris . and Dr.
though. Now he would like to compile his collection of limericks and
see "if a publisher will take them."
It would perhaps b~ titled: "My
Favorite Limericks."
What's a limerick? "Why it is like
a poem has five lines and
kipda rhymes." For example:
"A jolly young fellow named Jonah
Once said: I wish I might ownah
A Cadillac eight,
A girl and a date,
A bun and a piece of bolona!"
Incidentally this is an original limerick of Dr. Lyness and it was published many years ago in the Pathfinder magazine at the tiine when
Dr. Lyness first became interested
in limericks. Since then he has picked them up from various sources ·and
has made this collection a favorite
pastime hobby.
As to the modern student, Dr. Lyness says, "They are serious minded
and know what they are here for.
They, of course, don't all make top
grades but they, in general, do try
and that is -important. I enjoy working with them and feel we have a
fine group of students, as a whole,
here on the campus."
Membership in the Central Wisconsin Teachers association and Central Wisconsin Schoolmasters club,
plus being the' adviser for the Wesley Foundation are his main outside
interests at present.
Then, of course, there is the weekly grocery trip. He usually shops
with his wife. "It is like this," says
Dr. Lyness. "I push the cart and my
wife carries the memorandum. Mrs.
Lyness fears it would run the grocery bill up too high if it were th.e
other way around. Then, of course,
when we are finished, I pay!"
Dr. Lyness'· answer to Mr. Steiner's remark concerning Liberace (and
he hopes Mrs. Lyness doesn't find
out) is: "What gets me is his. smile.
Looks like he uses 'Bon Ami' to
clean his teeth."

junior girl, about her waterskiing.
Eileen is from Minocqua, the famous island city tourist town that is
surrounded by the waters of Lake
Minocqua, and this lake provides a
wonderful place for waterskiing. She
explains, enthusiastically, "It looked interesting, so I tried it and since
then 1 haven't been able to get

been waterskiing for two years and
last year worked with an amateur

"Conservatin' ," a song written for
AKL by Joe Moravec, one of the
frat's past .presidents, will be revived at the dinner as part of the
evening's entertainment. Mr. Moravec, who is teaching conservation

the dinner.
The highlight of the program following the dinner will be the announcement of the award winners
and the presentation of their checks.
Two awards of $50 will be made by
the Fox River Valley club to conservation majors in the Senior Class,
and an award of $100 will be presented by the State Federation of
Garden clubs to a conservation major
in the Junior class( The awards are
based on scholarship and leadership
in conservation.
The entertainment committee responsible for the festivities is composed of Ken Stewart, Elbridge Curtis, and Hugh Curtis.
A meeting of AKL alums will be
held the afternoon preceding the dinner.

All Big Ten team. Ends: Kramer,

Walker, Michigan and Heli~ski,

Purdue, Cassidy of Ohio State, McNamara of Minnesota, and Ameche of
Wisconsin. Further prediction: Either McNamara or Ameche will win
the Chicago Tribune Most Valuable.
Our personal choice is Len Dawson of
Purdue whose passing arm made
Purdue a threat instead of a pushover. The reason he won't be considered is he's only a sophomore.

Letting Out the Air
by Oarl Huberty
We are looking forward to an outstanding basketball season this year
from Hale F. Quandt's cagers. Because of the lack of upper-classmen
on the roster it may take a little time
for the team to get rolling, but' as
the season progresses the Quandtsmen should muster out some important triumphs. The squad of 25
is made up mostly of freshmen, who
lack height but make up for the lack
of stature with speed and terrific
ball handling. We can expect to see
a fast game being played with Coach
Quandt using the two platoon system
with a little variety throughout the
This year's Pointer basketball
team has seven men left over from
the gridiron congregation. Trying to
shift from the field to the hardcourt
are Ken Roloff; Tom Chvala, Jack
Charlesworth, Phil Cole, Jerry Vance,
George Knackstedt and George Roman. Notable attributes will be received from each of these former
Coach Robert's wrestlers have
started working out for a seven and
possibly a !'line week schedule. So
far 2 5 grapplers, among whom are
six returning lettermen, have shown
up for work-outs. With a lot of
competition for each weight class prevailing, Co~ch Roberts is expecting a
top notch team.
News of the week: Jack Crook
and our calamity Joe, John Smith,
have received their front teeth and
are very proud of their new enamels.
If you see them in the halls with
l;lig smiles on their faces, you will
know why. Take note when you
see these gridiron great~.
Wisconsin has a big week-end of
football in store for them this coming Saturday and Sunday. Saturday
afternoon you can either listen to
the Wisconsin-Minnesota game or
dash dowil. to the union and watch
the Rose-Bowl bound teams, Ohio
State and Michigan, vie. If you
have time to spare Sunday, you can
jump into your auto and drive to
Green Bay and watch the Packers
and the league leading Detroit Lions
battle in a Pro-League contest.
