FOREWORD  During this, our second war year,  many drastic changes have
taken  place in our college. Prominent  among these are decreased
enroll-ment,  small enrollment of men, and  stringent curtailment of
pre-war ac-tivities.  Rules have had to be altered  to fit the times,
because only a flex-ible  system can survive such heavy  blows to its
foundations. One thing  which hasn't changed is our standard  of education;
our plant is still pro-ducing  top-flight teachers and is ful-filling  its
mission on the home front battlefield.

THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE  A lieutenant commander serving as  director of
instructor training of the United States Navy told a group of ed-ucators 
recently that he regarded our  educational system as the most import-ant 
factor in the success of our war  effort. This tribute to our schools is 
unmistakably significant. Some may  say that he had reference to our high 
schools, technical schools, or the en- gineering  colleges of our
universities,  but no one can say that such schools  could exist without
the elementary and junior high schools, for  which our College prepares
teachers.  Since the beginning of the war, our College has provided an 
extended program of lower division education and a full program  of
professional training. Our service flag speaks with profound  eloquence.
The College is therefore contributing to victory. The  Klipsun staff could
not have chosen a more fitting theme this year  than working for victory.
We shall read the 1944 wartime Klip-sun  with interest and pleasure.-W. W.
Haggard, President.  TRUSTEES  Left: VERN BRANIGIN, Secretary  Right: DR.
W. D. KIRKPATRICK, Chairman

TEACHER TRAINING DIVISION  The campus elementary school, the newest
building on  our campus, where future teachers get practical  experience. 
DR. PAUL R. GRIM, Director of the  Training School THE CAMPUS SCHOOL  In
its second year of operation, the new Campus Element-ary  School proved to 
be one of the brightest spots on the campus.  Large numbers of student and
degree teachers took their training this year, aided by the modern
facilities offered by the  training school.  An ever increasing number of
requests from parents is  being received asking admittance for their
children into the  school and educators throughout the state have made
frequent  visits to examine the system employed there. Fourteen

JUNIOR-SENIOR CLASS  To be a Junior now-is practically up in the ranks with
being a Senior-for war conditions-brought a shortage of teachers-with all
its other shortages-and has  provided a three-year emergency teaching
certificate that is sending studes out-to  teach at the end of their Junior
year. So with  this new plan decreasing the number  who return-to be
Seniors-and with the interests-of the two classes- closer than  ever-they
have been combined this year-into a Junior-Senior class-led by Senior  Walt
Baker- who supervises many other campus activities besides those of his
class.  And the new combined class has two other junior officers-Doris
Bishop-vice-presi-dent-  and Ruth Kosche-secretary-all advised by Dr. Lucy
Kangley. Now the big-gest  responsibility falling on the shoulders of the
upperclassmen each year-is  man-aging  the Homecoming week-end-this year
handled by class prexy Walt Baker-and  Jeannette' Bright. They changed it
to "Home Front" week-end-and planned as in-teresting  a program as pre-war
days boasted-with a ship launching as a new bit to  spice up interest-and
the traditional banquet and dance-with Whidby Navy men  to even up WWC's
man-shortage on the dance floor-and with lovely Marie Eines  reigning at
the dance-wearing the crown of Queen Sigrid VI-attended by Princess-es 
Cheryl Smith-and Jeannette Bright-both juniors. The two classes were about 
even up with honors-Shirley Olsen headed the interclub council-the juniors
sent  Ruthe Olds off to the. WAVES-the Seniors cheered Jim Gilday to
California to  train as third baseman for the Seattle Rainier baseball
team-after he had reinforced   Lappy's basketball team here all winter-the
team that rated many salutes from state  sportcasters-and the team that was
led by two Seniors-one Ernie Ludwick-and one  Larry Munizza. Now this class
is preparing to teach-and preparing for graduation  -and they will follow
tradition in June-as they receive their diplomas-and their  degrees-and
walk down the cement walk-past the hollow squares that began in  1915 and
stopping-at an empty one-to drop in some remembrance-and leave  their
college days-sealed up-and marked "1944."  Seventeen

SOPHOMORE CLASS  They're not green, but they're not seasoned-they're
sophomores and they make up the second largest class on the campus-and
though they are traditionally consid-ered  as in-betweens- they stand for
the activity leaders at WWC-for with the Juniors  student teaching this
year under the war emergency plan-and the Seniors busy degree  teaching-the
sophs had to take over this year-and fill the shoes-usually worn by 
upperclassmen. To give a cross-section-of the backbone the sophs
furnish-for WWC  -there is Pat Scott editing the WWCollegian-usually an
upper-classman's position  -and ditto for Lorraine McConnell who heads-the
Klipsun staff-leading the entire  girl enrollment-Rachael Blekkink rules
with the gavel at AWS-Harriett Clow is prexy  of the campus elective club,
Valkyrie-and when the votes were tallied for Board of  Control
position-this season three soph girls-Virginia Sorgenfrei, Alice Marie
Ander-son,  and Zosia Nowogroski-won the offices. As for drama-Jeanne
Knudsen led-the  "Brief Music" cast-and in the athletic world-Roy Wark was
Lappy's most consistent  hoopser-and speaking of basketball-it was when the
U. of W. Huskies scheduled a  game with Lappy's Vikings-that the sophs
rounded up their energy-and sparked the  game with a publicity campaign-to
make it-the peppiest-and best-attended game  of the season-not only by
stringing posters and canvassing the town with tickets-but   by sponsoring
a pep rally-the night before. Heading this campaign-with the help  of
Vincella Zankich as co-chairman-was class president Cale Campbell-the "see
all,  tell all" sportscaster of campus athletics- who had for officers-two
other top athletes  -of the feminine world-Alice Marie Anderson as
vice-prexy-and Crystal Ackerman  as secretary-treasurer-and not satisfied
with three athletic officers-the sophs chose Mrs. Orpha Christensen-PE
instructor-as class adviser. There are many of 1944's  sophs-who will not
be back to WWC next fall-Carol Hanify is already a full-fledged  WAVE-and
many girls plan to follow her footsteps-this summer-and many sophs  -who
are non-diploma and filling basic two-year requirements will  be
transferring-while  those that do return will be busily-student-teaching.
But-in the words of a sophomore-and we quote-"your sophomore year-is the
tops-you don't suffer  initiations-like a freshman- and you don't have to
face leaving college-like the  seniors. There are times-when it's handy to
be just an in-between!"  Twenty-f our

Bright, Booras  FRESHMEN  Your Freshman year in college- usually a year
connected with being shoved around  by upperclassmen-with just getting
acquainted with the school because you're only a  freshman. But in this
wartime-WWC's enrollment showed a majority of freshmen-the  ruling class of
the campus-they shed all their greenness the first week-at a mixer  in the
lounge-and turned black in November to entertain with a Minstrel Show-that 
won unanimously-WWC's Oscar for 1943-1944. All profits from the
show-consti-tuted  the check that bought the nickelodeon-that is the pride
of the student lounge.  Twenty-eight

This lounge helps trace the history of 1944's Freshman class-which mainly
gathered  there between classes-woeing over "College Problems," courses-and
glowing when  a freshman girl-Amy Jean Allen-was  crowned Publications Prom
Princess. Then, too,  class prexy Tom Hillier-so firm with the gavel-ruled
the Lounge's ping-pong table  with a firm grip on the paddle-vice president
of the class-Betty Anderson-was a  habitual dancer in the lounge-while
Elaine Dahlgren-secretary-treasurer-just liked  to read. But the Freshmen
were a versatile class-adding many athletes to Lappyls  basketball
team-adding two yell leaders to school spirit-and many entertainers to 
assembly programs-in fact-adding a lot to all WWC. Top Row: Dahl, Custer,

the board planned Home Front  Week-End, including the ship launching and
the annual Campus Day affair held in Spring quarter.  They, with the
elected faculty members, supervised the opening and the manage-ment  of 
the Student Lounge, picking the man-agers.  Spring quarter they arranged to
have it  open Saturday night  between the hours of 9 and  12 o'clock. Money
was collected for the purchase  of new records and other amusements.  Under

Editor Lorraine McConnell  Business Manager Harriett Clow  THE KLIPSUN 
With a staff even smaller, and with more difficulties than last year, the
second  wartime Klipsun came off the press May 31. Defense plants, assembly
lines, and the home front are the themes carried out this  year. The
teachers are the foremen and the clubs and various organizations are
sym-bolized  as unions.  The six staff members worked faithfully all winter
quarter mounting pictures.  They had a tough time, but were thankful for
their one great blessing-a gallon of  rubber cement, the last one in
creation. Thanks to that they somehow put up with the  shortages of
flash-bulbs, films, and available photographers. After spending most of 
their spring vacation writing copy, they met the deadline.  Thirty-sic

helped to acquaint freshmen women. A tea  was given for Governor Langlie on
his visit to  the college, and the Mardi Gras was sponsored  to raise money
for WWCollegians to be sent  to servicemen.   AWS rendered an important
service in Feb-ruary  when they sponsored entertainment for  100 high
school girls meeting in Bellingham for  a Girl Reserve conference. The
traditional stu-dent  teas were continued during the year.

informal. During  winter quarter they backed several basketball  games,
special "Rec" hours and assemblies.  Spring quarter the annual Norseman
cruise  brought the year to a successful climax.  Membership in Norsemen is
open to all men  in the school, and through this organization  they are

Club, has added pep and enthusiasm to the college year. The girls with the
royal blue sweaters and white em-blems  have given outstanding service in
school functions by caring for the student  lounge, taking part in
assemblies, and sending Christmas letters to servicemen.  Their pompons and

by sponsoring one of the first teas of fall quarter, by having a luncheon
in the winter quarter which was open to the faculty and students, and  by
gathering at cozy fireside meetings. The year was ended with an all-school

of being the first college in the nation to sponsor the  launching of a
ship, WWC's Queen Sigrid VI sent the army tug L. T. 159 down the ways  at
the Northwestern Shipbuilding Company, Saturday, November 20, at ceremonies
 which highlighted the "Victory" theme of this year's Home Front Week-end. 
Marie Eines, Queen Sigrid VI, and her court  of princesses, reigned over
all of the week-end events which began with the first per-formance  of
"Brief Music," the penthouse play,  in the Edens Hall blue room, Friday
night.  The luncheon in the Edens Hall dining room  Saturday noon further
emphasized the Victory  theme by decorations and by the program  which
featured a broadcast of the launching ceremonies.  Climaxing the week-end,
WWC students and  faculty, the alumni and their friends danced to Doc
Chase's music at the annual Home Front  Week-End dance in the Physical
Education  building Saturday night.  In spite of the war, the alumni and
grads who  came back helped make this traditional week-end  what it always
has been-a friendly re-uniting  of old and new students at their college 
on the hill.  Marie Eines and Declan Barron in the  receiving line,

BRIEF MUSIC  "Brief Music," the gala three-act comedy, which first held the
limelight in fall  quarter, proved to be a star in the entertainment field.
This exacting portrayal of  college, vividly presented by an all-girl cast,
won loud acclaim for its vivacity and  charm. At the initial opening of the
new Bellingham Theater Guild Playhouse, "Brief  Music" was the opening
attraction, and was also presented to the Girl Reserves the  closing night
of their conference.  Forty-nine

MINSTREL SHOW  A scintillating cake-walk up the aisle of  the college

which successfully brought to a  close the fall social season at WWC. 
Starting with the catchy number  "Mandy," the Darktown Minstrels strut-ted 
their stuff with an ensemble, Declan  Barron acting as the traditional
interloc-utor,  and with an added feature, "Uncle  Tom's  Cabin," presented
by an all-fac-ulty  cast. The show ended on a patriotic  note, with all
participants singing "Its a  Grand Old Flag."  Fifty

CAMPUS DAY  May 10! Campus Day was here at  last, and though the annual
trek to Lake-wood  was impossible, an expectant group  left the campus for
Whatcom Falls Park,  under the leadership of Don Eldridge.  The morning of
May 10 was begun  with skits presented in the assembly by  clubs and
classes. After the success of  the skits everyone was in a picnic mood  for
the activities of the day. The group  returned to the campus for an e'ening
 of entertainment in the Student Lounge.  Following custom, 1943 Campus Day
 is pictured here.  Fifty-one

PUBLICATIONS PROM  By choosing the reigning Princess, furnishing 125 men
and sending the Whidby  Jivers to supply the music, the Whidby Island Naval
Air Base became the predomin-ating  feature of the fifth annual
Publications Prom.  Those enjoying the music and dance were staff members
from the county  high  schools, invited patrons and patronesses, parents of
the princess candidates and college  students  with their guests.  Early in
the winter quarter 2 I1 girls were chosen by the Norsemen Club in the pre-
liminary  judging for the princess contest. Later the ten finalists were
chosen by Mrs. J.  N. Gilbert, local artist; Mr. Ben Sefrit, Herald
photographer, and Jack Van de Weter-ing,  high school photographer.
Individual portraits of these girls were sent to Whidby  Island, where a
committee of Navy men chose Amy  Jean Allen, a freshman from Wood-lands, 
as the most photogenic girl of WWC. She was crowned at the  prom by Ensign 
Bill Hatch, former ASB president.  The committee worked smoothly, despite
wartime scarcities and restrictions, un-der  the direction of L. McConnell,
Klipsun editor; Pat Scott, WWCollegian editor,  and Mrs Burnet, publcations
adviser.  Fifty-two

THE STUDENT LOUNGE  The new Student Lounge proved this year to be the
center of all school activities.  Starting with the fall AWS kid party, the
lounge from then on was the accepted meet-ing  place  for students between
I I and 4:30 o'clock.  Ping-pong, dancing, and gin rummy were the main
forms of entertainment, but  there was always something else doing besides.
The freshman class bought and paid  for a nickelodeon, the only addition in
furniture this year, with the proceeds from their  minstrel show. Jean
Borchardt supervised the lounge fall quarter, and Bob dePastel winter and 
spring quarters. Valkyrie club members volunteered to take charge when the
student  manager couldn't be there.  Fifty-five

curtailment of sports due to the war, basketball took the year's spot-light
 in  athletic activities.  At the initial workout, Coach Lappenbusch found
two lettermen, three veterans  from last year's five and a host of
promising material. Using the lettermen, Captain  Ernie Ludwick and Larrie
Munizza, as a foundation, the WWC mentor quickly whipped  a formidable
squad well coached in the usual fine style of the Lappenbusch regime.  With
veterans Roy Wark, Jim Gilday, Harold Moe, Paul Foster, Herb Witt and
Lowell  Doud and the promising freshmen candidates Clarie Marshall, Gene
Sivertson, Bob  Ross, Chuck Pomeroy, Ed Olson, Jerry Pells and Dale
Burklund, the Blue and White was   ready to take on all comers, including
the University of Washington Huskies. In these  clashes, the Viks  really
showed the ability that was theirs as they came close to toppling  the
vaunted Huskies. In the first clash the Huskies were outplayed and were
surprised  to find themselves up against a team that wouldn't give up.
Coming from behind in the  second half from a two-point deficit, the
Lappenbusch team drove Washington until with  a minute and 30 seconds left
to play the score read 35 to 35. In the closing half minute the  greater
height and experience of the Huskies drove them to a 38 to 35 victory. In 
Seattle, the Vikings took the initiative and played hard to a 20 to 12
half-time lead over  the Huskies. In the last period the Viking force had
to succumb to greater height and  stronger reserves. Again it was only a
three-point margin for the University, 31 to 28,  but a decided moral
victory for the Blue and White.  Fifty-six
