OFFICIAL HIERARCIHY  A decision that will give the campus a decidedly  "New
Look" has been reached by the Board of  Trustees this year: The
distribution of funds  between the industrial arts and auditorium- music 
buildings.  Locations of these buildings were also deter-mined.  The
industrial arts building will be situ-ated  south of the Campus Elementary
school and  the auditorium-music building will be erected on the site of
the present tennis courts.  The board further authorized the architects to 
proceed with plans and specifications. Construction  has already begun on
the industrial arts building  and work is scheduled to begin on the
auditorium-music  building in the near future.  BOARD OF TRUSTEES  Joseph

Dr. William Wade Haggard  EXPONENT OF EXPANSION  How would you like to be
the president of Western Washington  College? It's a big job for a big man!
Besides the day-by-day  routine, there would be the planning for the
future, for new  courses, for new buildings, in addition to constant
revision of the existing order of things.  Besides his curricular work, Dr.
Haggard finds time for much  non-professional reading, motoring,
picnicking, traveling, and  fishing. In spite of all these activities, he
is interested in and concerned with the problems of individual students who
find him  genuinely human and friendly.  Page twenty-one

Dr. Raymond F. Hawk  Jobs well done by the Director of Student Personnel, 
Dr. Kuder, include keeping the campus cogs oiled and  acting as the general
trouble-shooter for the College.  Going a long way toward solving teacher
troubles is  the robust sense of humor possessed by Dr. Raymond  F. Hawk,
Director of Student Teaching.  Page twenty-two

WHEELS... ROUND AND SQUARE  Clyde W. McDonald Lorraine Powers Donald A.
Ferris  Although it is leap year, coaching and being Dean  of Men combine
to give Mr. McDonald more "man  trouble" than any WWC co-ed ever thought
of.  "Such a good fit that an incoming freshman  wouldn't know this was his
first year at WWC," is  an apt description of Registrar Ferris.  Known to
the girls as "the Powers that be . ."  the capable Dean of Women oversees
the innumer-able  social activities of the college.  Page twenty- three

LIBRARY ...  ALL BOUND UP  The most popular rendezvous for study  and
relaxation, the library stands on  the campus as a symbol of higher
edu-cation  - term papers, theses, thous-ands  of volumes, stacks,

editorials, the library  has seen the light. Fluorescent table  lamps now
adorn the interior reading  room thus allowing the room to live  up to its

THE ELECT  Gazing out over their domain, Halldor Karason and Bob  Dickson
display their usual brand of  smiles.  Eager to serve everyone, Halldor
Karason executes his many duties  as ASB president with a smiling charm and
easygoing manner that mark  him as one of the most popular figures on the
campus. Reading all sorts  of manuscripts and doing some pen-pushing
himself, Halldor relaxes over  an occasional game of chess and modestly
admits that he is somewhat  of a camera fan. WWC's loss next year will be
some school children's gain.  Bob Dickson, a journalistic galley slave,
does a complete job of  everything he undertakes. A senior, Bob served a
quarter as summer  editor of the WWCollegian and also published the 1947
Navigator. In  addition to his hobby of authoring, this congenial, smiling
vice- president  loves to fish. When Bob joins the ranks of the educators
in the near future,  he will be able to enjoy his summers in a boat with a
fishing rod, manu-facturing  tall tales about the ones that got away. Page

THE VIKING SHIP OF STATE  "Article XII: The Board of Control shall have
general supervision of all busi- ness  affairs, property, and activities of
this association; it shall have the  power . . ." thus are the powers of
the Board of Control enumerated and  defined in the ASB constitution. The
past year has witnessed the  full use  of this power exercised by an alert,
intelligent, and capable Board of Control.  Working at all times in almost
complete harmony, and keeping stride with  the "new era," the Board of
Control moved swiftly and efficiently in accom-plishing  some of the most
outstanding advances in recent years. Among the  leading achievements are
the following: an amendment to the constitution  establishing a primary and
 general election and abolishing the much-debated  nominating convention;
complete revision of the financial system; and new  furnishings for the
student lounge.  Wednesday session of the winter quarter Board of Control.

25 girls are rated as being among the most active on the college cam-pus. 
Mimi Anderson guided the policies as president and the hall sponsored many 
events throughout the year.  A barn dance and spring informal marked the
dances held. A buffet guest  dinner was held during the fall quarter and
spring quarter was celebrated by a  picnic and barbecue. The girls also
took their turn as tea-servers for the AWS.  One of the newest additions to
the list of the college's organized houses, Hen-derson  Hall quartered
eight men students during the year. George Jergens, presi-dent,  directed
the hall's participation in the intramural swimming meet.  Page forty

Approximately 76 lucky college  "Joes" are living in the brand new  Men's
Residence Hall. The newest building on the campus, MRH rep-resents  one of
the most beautiful  structures on the hill.  Each quarter a fireside was
held  and an exchange dinner with Edens  Hall and Senior Hall became the 
accepted routine. The fellas entered  several teams in all of the campus 
intramural sports. Ingenuity gave the  MRH  top honors in the Homecoming 
display contest. Al Bianchini served  his housemates as president.  The
abiding place for approximate-ly  seven girls, Forest Inn witnessed  a
successful social year under the direction of Shirley Lindstrom, viva-cious
 president who was assisted by  her secretary, Pat Graves. Daniels Hall,
located on High  street, represents the home for many  men attending ye
olde WWC. An energetic bunch, the house entered  practically all of the
social events of  the past year with a will to win.  Their Homecoming
display was view-ed  by hundreds. Especially good was  the fireside dinner
given during fall  quarter.  OFFICERS:  MRH-To--BACK Row: S. Brown,  Kent,

With all but one of its 12 girls in the Civic Choir's Christmas pro-gram, 
College Inn proved itself to be musically inclined this year. Besides 
taking their turn at the ANWS tea kettle, the girls held several private 
birthday parties during the year.  The Inn's  executive board was composed
of Ruth Antonnen, presi-dent;  Margaret Symonds, vice-president; Helen
Johnson, secretary;  Shirley Hamer, treasurer; and Joyce Ruthruff,
reporter.  Playing nursemaid to Judy, a  gigantic St. Bernard, is the
special  hobby of the 30 fellas living at Hospice Inn. The dainty little
canine is  the Inn's mascot.  Under the direction of Gus Bailey, president,
and Frank Iraola, social  chairman, the Inn entered teams in all of the
intramural contests. Three  main social events were held during the year;
the annual Christmas ban-quet,  the winter quarter dance at the Leopold
hotel, and the spring picnic. Page forty-two

this year than it has in a long while.  Some of the functions which have
made the girls outstanding on the  campus are: dances, firesides, exchange
dinners, and the successful  "Shipwreck Shuffle." The 115 girls who reside
at "the home of color and  light" are among the social leaders on the
campus.  Prexy Beverly Cameron handled the affairs of the house in a
pleas-ant and capable manner.  Taking second place in the Homecoming
display contest, Harborview  hall's 13 girls  completed a very successful
social year. Under the direction  of Barbara Stockton, the girls sponsored
a Christmas party, a winter  quarter banquet at Fisherman's Cove, a spring
serenade for the other  houses, in addition to various parties scattered
throughout the year.  Page forty-three

club is an organization consisting of all the men students en-rolled  in
school. It is governed by a commission and, has no designated meeting 
time. The commission convenes three or four times a quarter, depending upon
the  business at hand. Its purpose is to further school activities, to
sponsor social af-fairs,  and to increase school spirit.  This year's
activities included a semi-formal dance at the Bellingham Hotel;  an
all-college mixer during winter quarter; and the annual spring dance. 
Through the Norsemen's club activities, the men of the college had an added
opportunity to enter into campus social life.  Page forty-four

Germaine, the French orphan who receives AWS sup-port,  forget her far-away
benefactors.  College day, the day that representatives from WWC were  sent
back to their high schools with girls from other colleges to  present 
panel discussions on college life, was a huge success.  These activities
were featured under the leadership of Gloria  Carey, capable president, and
the AWS commission.  Gloria Carey, President  Page  forty-five

Thanksgiving baskets, and  the collection of clothing for Europe.  With
Peggy Nunamaker, Virginia Proctor, and Rose Mary Dewar taking turns at  the
gavel, the Off-Campus Women enjoyed a successful year--their first year.
The  girls capitalized on their holidays with a haunted house mixer and a
Valentine's dance  and in addition they took their turn at the AWS tea
table. Ruth Norman kept the  minutes and Madelyn House acted as financier.

IRC endeavored to interest student opinion in the World Student  Serv-ice 
Fund by sponsoring a rec hour in spring quarter.  Realizing the import of
social problems in the 20th century world, the latest addi-tion  to college
clubs, the Social Science Study and Action club, has been organized as  an
aid in diffusing vital information on current problems.  Officers for

of by Ruth Soderstrom. The girls have ushered at all of the assemblies and
have  cheered the boys on to victory at the games.  One of the
organizations that has come to life with a start this past year is the 
College Christian Fellowship. With a many-sided program that would
challenge groups  of a larger size, its activities have included daily noon
meetings, numerous Bible  studies, and a bi-weekly "Sing" in the evening,
as well as quarterly parties. Officers for  the winter quarter were: Einar

a 3.5 grade average or better. Mr. E. J. Arntzen, long inter-ested  in
scholarship clubs at Western, heads the club as adviser.  Camera Club 
Marion Thornton, better known as "Tiny", headed the activities of the
Camera club this year.  The shutter-fiends enjoyed a profitable year
highlighted by a trip to Mount Baker where many  feet of film were used up
on its shimmering beauty.  W Club  With all of its members wearing letter
sweaters earned in one of Western's major or minor  sports, the W club
proved an important asset to the campus recreational picture. These Vik-ing
 warriors, led by Ron Dodge, president, staged a "W" Homecoming dance that
was a won-derful success.  Colheconomists  Colheconomists this year had
Dorothy McLane, as president; Madelyn House, as vice-president;  and

bloom. In  addition to the crop of beautiful blooms, the weather brought
forth  a most spectacular array of long-haired beards that transformed 
plain-looking college joes into wise men of Abe Lincoln's day.  No food
shortage was visible as the faculty and students stuffed  themselves all
day long. The classic feature of the cele bration occurred when the faculty

heart of a summer  vacation area and offering many educational and
recreational opportunities in  addition to a temperate climate conducive to
summer study, the campus was  thronged with students from schools
throughout the country.  The academic program was highlighted by the annual
summer conference  and featured Dr. Harold Benjamin, dean of the college of
education, University  of Maryland. The elementary principals' institute
held early in July, the cur-riculum  workshop, the special courses in
remedial education, and the introduction  of graduate work all gave added
impetus to the summer's work.  Page fifty-five

On the recreational-relaxation side of the ledger, the beautiful summer
week-ends  were filled with a complete schedule of interesting, colorful,
well-planned events.  Included on the program were numerous cruises and
overnight trips on placid  Puget Sound with stop-overs at many of the
picturesque San Juan islands. For  the more vigorous students there were
hikes into the rugged, snowcapped Cas-cade mountains. For those inclined to
take it easy, there were countless picnics,  trips, tours, and fishing.
Inclement weather high on the mountain prevented the scheduled ascent to 
the summit of Mount Baker. The doughty mountaineers, aided by Charles 
"Happy" Fisher, their effervescent, reliable guide, nevertheless enjoyed
the Church  mountain climb and the trip to Hannegan pass.  LEFT: Miss

gathered on the maple courts of the  Western P. E. building. Princess Lois

carried out realistically in  black silhouettes of that city's famous
buildings. With Vern Matthews and Betty  McLeod, co-chairmen, directing the
1948 dance of the year, the committees, which  were composed of

BOOK OF THE YEAR  Betty McLeod, editor.  Barbara Cozza, business manager. 
Whip in hand, Editor McLeod managed her staff with dexterity. Bobbie Cozza 
somehow survived the red tape and the red ink as business manager, while 
Katie Golly and Pearl Hofman, assistant editors, did as their title
implies. The  hypo angle was handled, but beautifully, by Bernie Lepeska,
Ruth Norman, and  Wayne Craig. They went through more than one case of
flash bulbs to get that  "casual look." Madcap Charlotte Ellis was a
suitable companion for the "Bus.  Mgr."  Nancy Merrick, compiling editor,
had Madelyn House and Phyllis  Arm-strong  to assist her with a thankless
job. "Dictator" Dowd, serving as copy  editor and general typist, made a
name for himself. Beejay Christie was the  'arty' member of the Klipsun
set.  You could always count on Mary Lou Borchardt and Kathy Niemela, class
 and activity section editors, and jovial Keith Stearns, sports editor, for
a bang-up  job. Joan Shields was the lay-out editor, and Rosemary Dewar 
wrote endless  letters as staff secretary. Joan Wear, Roselyn Roberts,
Connie Martin, Rosalie  Storchlie,  Bob Dickson, Paul Conner, Al Bianchini,
Shady Bowers, Ed Stovall,  and Dorothy Dahl wrote copy and made themselves
useful.  Page sixty-five

Edited by amiable Vern Matthews (nick-named "William Randolph" by his 
staff) the WWCollegian was a vital part of campus life. George Dowd became 
associate editor and John Peters took command of the sports page. Glen Wolf
 edited the feature page with help from Fran Cory, Arlene Slotemaker, Tom
Bush,  and Dave Orser.  Ed Brown put in his time as copy editor and June
Penn and Beverly Hansen  handled the womens' page with assistance from
MaryAnn Call, June Hardin,  Charlotte Ellis, and Marion Nattrass. Charlotte
Ellis and Connie Martin made  their marks as special interviewers. Covering

"Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. From the college on the hill we 
bring you another program of College-Newsweek-in-Review." These are  the
words that go out over the air from the third floor studio of the  radio
class every Thursday at 4:45 p. m. on  station KVOS. The program  about
college life and what the college is doing is directed by Sene R. Carlile, 
and are given by the radio broadcasting class.  Purpose of the course is to
teach a few techniques of the microphone,  something about radio
advertising, the art of radio script writing, and other  aspects of radio.
The class itself does not always sponsor the program as  the music
department alternates with a program every other week with  one of the
class members in charge. The plan gives the students more time  to work on
scripts and plays, which they record to good advantage. Dur-ing  the winter
quarter the class members traveled to Seattle, accepting  an invitation to
visit KOMO.  Page sixty- eight

LET THERE BE MUSIC  Music at Western had a big year. The band and the choir
 throughout the state during the year and were well received.  the pep band
were in evidence at many of the assemblies and at made many trips  The
quartet and  rec hours.  During winter quarter, the a cappella choir
appeared over radio station  KIRO in addition to appearing before audiences
in Seattle and Tacoma. The  choir kept the home front morale at a high
level by showing their talent in  assemblies.  Don Walter, band director,
turned out a band that was worthy of the school  it represented. Besides
many out-of-town appearances, the Viking band proved  its merit at the
Tacoma game when the "rains came down in buckets" but dampened not the
school spirit.  Booming out the beat for school spirit,  features WWC's
brass section of  the  band during the basketball games.  Page sixty-nine

WWC's outstanding a cappella choir rounded out a year filled with memories
of  work well done. Under the direction of Bernard Regier, the choral group
made many  trips around the state, representing the college abroad.  For
its first big post-war year, the 55-piece band, outfitted in sparkling' new
equipment, did a good job of displaying the Viking spirit. Much of the
credit for the  band's success is due  Don C. Walter, new band-master.
Besides playing at games, they  served as official host band to the Blossom

SKIN OF OUR TEETH-LEFT PICTURE, BACK Row: Conner, Ingersoll. SECOND Row:
Cory, Hunt, Peters. FRONT Row:  Merrick. Roberts, Ruthruff, Martin, King,
and Follis. RIGHT PICTURE: Follis, Wolf, and Ruthruff.  The fall production
of the drama department was Thornton Wilder's "The  Skin of Our Teeth." 
The audience in two hours was exposed to the entire saga  of mankind,
beginning at the dawn of civilization and ending at the present  atomic
age. None of the characters in the play were perfect but were rather 
representative of human virtues, good and bad. Mr. Antrobus, played by Dick
 King, was essentially earnest and inquiring, constructive in his aims and
possessed  of a vivid imagination. Haroldine  Ruthruff capably played the
role of Mrs.  Antrobus-a part that represented the eternal mother. Beverly
Follis inter-preted  the role of Sabina, temptress and troublemaker. 
Oliver Goldsmith's play, "She Stoops to Conquer" which was presented in 
the Campus school auditorium winter quarter, was a fitting tribute to leap
year.  A delightful comedy of eighteenth century setting, the play sparkled
with gor-geous  costumes  and modern gag-lines. The plot, typical of so
many plays, had to  do with the way of a maid for a man. Don Sayan
portrayed the man and Patricia  Wright was the girl.  Victor H. Hoppe,
director, deserves high praise for choosing and presenting  these
productions for the pleasure of the college and community. Page

active group.  These active underclassmen began their  first year of
college by successfully defending the  Homecoming bonfire against the
sophomore fire-bugs.  They also sponsored a lovely red- head,  Billie

SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS: Barbara McGinnis, Secretary; Clarence Ness, 
Vice-President; and Jim Beasley, President.  Sophomores, those peppy second
year students, enjoyed  a fruitful year. Among the various activities
under-taken  by the second largest group in school were two  all-school
mixers, the Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving,  and Superstitious Stomp on
Friday, November 13.  In all fairness to other classes, the fact must be
stated  that they did their part to pep up the old school, but  it was the
sophomore crowd that really got hep!  Page eighty-eight

GETTING THERE  Destined to rule the campus next year when they become
seniors, the  class of 1949 anxiously awaits their turn. They whiled away
the  time by sponsoring a barn dance in the student lounge during fall 
quarter. All was quiet on the junior front during winter quarter but 
spring found the group preparing for their annual picnic.  JUNIOR CLASS
OFFICERS: Jack Driver, Vice-President; Ted Gary, President; and  Pedie
Johnston, Secretary.  Page eighty-nine
