Your college . . . your campus . . . your year ...  your annual. You, the
student, are this college. You  are the one who learns, who pays for the
Student  Union building, who keeps the grass rule, who keeps  your
instructors on the job, who lives and works  here. Your future depends on
what you obtain from  the years spent and the studies taken while en-rolled
 at this school. It is only fitting to dedicate this  1956 Klipsun to you,
the student of Western, and  2 your future.

Building for the Future . ..  The blueprints for education at Western
Wash-ington  College were first drawn up in 1899.  Changes and improvements
were made in  them, but the original plans remained-proj-ects and ideas for
a more prosperous tomor-row.  Every finished product became a tool  for the
future.  As students, we came to Western to serve  apprenticeships in
higher education. The fac-ulty  and staff acted  as our foremen and
crafts-men,  teaching us their knowledge and skills.  We worked hard at our
jobs, sometimes get-ting  nothing in return but the realization of a  goal.
To those of us completing our terms as   apprentices, the job is one well
done; yet it is  only a beginning. "For, like our predecessors,  we are
also building for the future.  1952, 1953, 1954 ... the numbers appear
reflected  in the sunlit marble while hurrying down Memory  Walk and your
feet scatter leaves left and right.  There's a brisk crispness in the air.
The campus is an  autumn tapestry of golds, brilliant yellows, rich  browns
against brick buildings and  silent evergreens.  But the days soon become
shorter, nippier, and wet-ter.  Christmas holidays fairly zoom by, and a
new  quarter begins. The winter panorama of snowy moun-tains  in the
distance are sure to thrill the hearts of  every skiier and even a few
non-skiiers as well. At  night a few of the studious can be seen in the
glow  of the lights as they hurry through the rain and,  sometimes, snow to
the library.  The  rains are suddenly warm and gentle. Still an-other 
quarter, but this one is famous for green grass  and ivy, pink blooming
trees, cotton dresses and  graduation. Your pace slows as you soak up the 
sunshine and the sparkling blue bay, and your  thoughts are on summer
vacation.  S.. a glimpse of Western's campus scene.

For what, in the advance of our College, will the author of "The  Second
Fifty Years" record for the year 1955-56? Among the  achievements he will
likely emphasize are the enrollment of  1740, the completion of the
$500,000 North Wing of Edens  Hall, the conversion of the old auditorium
into classrooms and offices, and, perhaps more important than the
foregoing, the  addition of eleven faculty members. He certainly should
empha-size  also the student body's efforts in behalf of the Student  Union
Building.  The author of "The Second Fifty Years" will find all the
fore-going  in the minutes, but in the interpretation of the College he 
will find the KLIPSUN very helpful. He will find in the yearbook  the
record of 1955-1956 pictorialized and made human. It is a  record that each
student will certainly want to keep for reference  to  his college days. 
The trustees, the faculty, and the student body will always be  grateful to
Janet Soine, editor; Gail Gustafson, business man-ager;  Mr. James Bliss,
faculty consultant; and the student staff members for their sincere and
competent efforts in behalf of a  very acceptable yearbook. They have
contributed their full  measure to the presentation of another chapter in
the progress  of their Alma Mater.  14 ZU_ ZU aaaahaC  President

BOARD OF TRUSTEES  Students and faculty members are not all  that go to
make up an efficiently operated  and successful college. Administrators
such  as Mr. Burton Kingsbury, Mr. Harry A. Bin-zer, and Mr. Donald
Eldridge who com-prize  the Board of Trustees devoted their  time and
interests to the problems and gen-eral  organization of Western.  DEAN OF
MEN  With his cheery smile and a big "Hello," Mr. Clyde W.  McDonald, dean
of men, was a familiar figure on campus.  Students interested in part-time
employment, either on cam-pus  or in the vicinity of Bellingham,
undoubtedly found them-selves  treading the well-worn path up to his office
on Second  floor to inquire about jobs. Men's housing was also taken  care
of through the office of Dean McDonald.  DEAN OF WOMEN  One of the first
names you  became  acquainted with before entering col-lege  was that of
Miss Lorraine Pow-ers,  Dean of Woment. She was the  recipient of many
letters before and  between quarters regarding housing  for prospective
women students. To  Western's women students the ap-proving  of an "SP" to
go home was  one of the most important functions  of Miss Power's office. 
These are the people respon-sible  for the long lines and  filling out of
many cards on  registration day each quarter.  Dr. Merle Kuder, director of
 student personnel services;  Mrs. Dorothy Button, assist-ant  registrar;
and Mr. Donald  Ferris, registrar, give the stu-dent  guidance in academic 
planning, counseling, and  veteran's affairs.

A CHUCKLE over someone's records perhaps? Stu-dent  and prospective
teachers sometimes shudder at the thought of what Mr. Melvin A. Allan,
Ap-pointment  Secretary and the "job-finder" for West-ern's students, and
Dr. Raymond F. Hawk, Director  of Campus School and student teaching, found
 upon glancing through their scholastic data.  THE HANDLING OF WESTERN'S 
FINANCES, buying, and selling, is  performed by Mr. Sam Buchanan, 
Comptroller and Financial Secretary.  "GARGLE THREE TIMES DAILY," or "I'm 
sorry, you're perfectly well enough to  attend class." These helpful
phrases have been heard by those who have sought  the aid of Western's
nurses, Misses Viola  Summers and Thelma Palmer.  "WOULD YOU TAKE A LETTER 
PLEASE?" Where would an office be  without the assistance of a secretary 
to act as the right hand of her boss.  Pictured here are Miss Mildred
Tre-main,  Secretary to the Dean of  Women, Miss Ethel Church, Secre-tary 
to the President, and Mrs. Eth-elyn  Sisk, Secretary to the Dean of  Men.

A MUST FOR EVERY WESTERN STUDENT  is a trip to the check-out desk in the
library.  'Here fines are reluctantly paid, and books  placed on reserve.
Irene Brodie is one of  the many student library assistants who  work
behind the desk.  THE NEVER-ENDING TASK of  keeping up our school's
buildings   and grounds was carried on by  the maintenance crew. From
work-ing  in gym lockers to mowing  lawns  and tending the furnaces  these
people were indispensable  on our campus. Left to right are:  Wayne Ensign,
Betty Mansur,  Jennie Johnston, Grace Pike,  Marguerite Ehle, and Arthur 
Norman.  BOOKS ARE A MOST IMPORT-ANT  TOOL in the hands of any  student,
for from them we obtain  most of our knowledge. In a  library the size of
Western's  someone must always be on hand  to order, catalogue, repair and 
care for these books, and assist  students in searching for them.  The
library staff are, left to right:  Mildred Herrick, Pearl Reese, Her-bert 
Hearsey, Miriam Mathes,  Magdalene Almlie, and Ralph Morse.

The libretto for this opera was based on the tragic story of  Dido, Queen
of Carthage and her lover Aeneas, a prince  of Troy. Aeneas, asplayed by
Mervin Sliger, and his crew  have found refuge in Carthage where the
beautiful Dido,  enchantingly sung by Joyce Brose, fell in love with the
Tro-jan  Prince.  But the evil ones intervened between the two  lovers and
a confused and unhappy Dido orders him from Carthage.  IMPLORING QUEEN
DIDO, as rendered by  Joyce Brose, to believe in his love for her  is
Aeneas, Prince of destroyed Troy, played  by Mervin Sliger.  AFTER THE
TROJANS HAVE DEPARTED Dido falls dead at the feet of her court.  Spring
Drama 1955  Trial by Jury  This light-hearted Gilbert and Sullivan satire
on British  justice was quite a contrast to the other more tragic 
performance of the evening.  The defendent, played by Allan Mathieson, was
to  have a trial by jury for breach of promise. The  beauti-ful  plaintiff,
Angelina, as played by Shirley Taylor,  completely captivated the entire
courtroom, and the  poor defendent is tried and condemned before he has 
time to say his piece. All ended well when  the jolly  judge, bouncingly
played by John Sundquist, decided  he would marry Angelina himself. And the
defendent  is allowed to continue to "play the field."  The orchestra under
the direction of Dr. D'Andrea did  a fine job of orchestration for two such
different scores  in the same evening.

ENCOURAGING CONTESTANTS are a  group of Westerners on top of the sound 
truck.  Campus Day ... 1955  Beginning with a special "rise and shine"
committee  who visited various houses of Vikingville at 6:00 a.m.  the 1955
Campus Day got off to a very early start.  The events of the day with a
logger theme were under  the chpirmanship of Walt Kauzlarich and a fine,
hard  working committee.  Many houses and organizations participated in the
 skit program with the Wesvets winning the annual  Campus Day skit trophy.
After skits the celebration  MESSY, MESSY was the berry eating con-test 
with the winners receiving as a prize,  a banana cream pie.  moved to
Whatcom Falls Park for lunch, games, and  beard judging. Much to the
chagrin of the students  the faculty beat them in the traditional ball
game, 18  to 14.  In the evening the festivities continued with a sock  hop
in the gym where the winners of the beard judg- ing  and skits were
announced.  To finish the day, the Men's Glee club serenaded the  girls at
several of the organized houses.

TRADITIONAL MARCH from Old Main  to the Auditorium by graduating seniors 
led by Valkyries Dot Flora and Carol  Diers.  Graduation  1955  The end of
four years of study and hard work . .. com- mencement.  More than 200
Westerners received their  Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Arts in
Education and 30  received their Master of Education Degrees last June as
the  new Alumni said farewell to professors, studies and West-ern's  varied
activities. But in return they had diplomas and  many nostalgic memories of
their Alma Mater.  The inspiring commencement address was given by Justice
Matthew W. Hill of the Washington State Supreme Court. Class Day  1955  An
all-senior program and the  traditional placing of  the class numeral on
memory walk were the highlights  of Class Day.  Among the awards given at
the assembly, Evelyn  James was selected outstanding Freshman of the Year. 
After the assembly the robed seniors accompanied by  the Viking Band
marched to Memory Walk where each class member dropped his activity card
into a copper  box to be placed under the class numeral. After the  
sealing of the marble slab over the cards the tradi-tional  event was
closed by the class singing "Auld Lang Syne."  CLASS NUMERAL IS SET in
place by  Senior Class President Dan Beatty.

Summer  Term  Summers always abound in love matches but West-erners  went
all out as far as weddings and engage-ments  were concerned. A week never
went by without  somebody showing up with  a diamond or a marriage 
license.  The big Board of Control issue of the summer was a  20-cent raise
for students employed by the college.  But the $1.00 wage was given the
cold shoulder by  that governmental  group. BOC also approved a group 
insurance plan for Western students which went into  effect during the fall
quarter.  Classes in the south wing were often disturbed by the  noise of
workmen who began early  in June to convert  the old auditorium into a bevy
of modern new offices  and classrooms.  The summer schedule furnished many
unique classes  and workshops. Miss Lucy McCormack, director of  home
economics in the Spokane public schools, con-ducted  a workshop on teaching
home economics on junior and senior high levels. Over 100 students
regis-tered  for a teaching technique course in penmanship  taught by Miss
Ruth Kittle. Dr Knapman and Dr.  Critchfield jointly conducted a workshop
on  Conserva-tion  and Outdoor Education (pictured above). Students 
enrolled found themselves wandering from Day Creek  on the upper Skagit,
where somebody's sleeping bag  was washed away, to Chief Joseph's Dam and
Gingko  petrified forest in the Columbia Basin, to the peaks on  the
Olympic Peninsula. (This is school??)  Under the watchful eye of Chet
Ullin, twenty-seven  Westerners scaled Mt. Baker in July. However, on the 
way down tragedy struck. Don Wallace, glissading  down a slope, swerved and
fell into a fifty foot cre-vasse,  smashing his arm and injuring his back.
Res-cued  by fellow climbers and the rangers, he was hos-pitalized  in
Bellingham. Western students rallied to his  aid by establishing a Don
Wallace Fund.  Intramural sport activities were rather curtailed by an 
abundance of rainy weather. But when the sun strug-gled  through the clouds
the tennis courts and base-balls  really got a workout. Don Mahaffey was
intra-mural  tennis champ.  The majority of summer students were
experienced  teachers who had returned for their fifth year. Many  brought
their families along. And so a family picnic  was a fitting climax to
summer recreation.

BOSS MAN OVER WESTERN'S CAMPUS this year is Roland  Sayler. With a friendly
smile and a cheery word, this Asso-ciated  Student Body president has
always been ready to lead  and advise whenever he is needed. Rol's policy
has been to  delegate responsibility to others as much as possible so that 
more people might participate in student government and ac-tivities  here
at Western. Presiding as chairman of the Board  of Control is one of his
main jobs. He appoints all standing  and special committees of the ASB and
must serve as a mem-ber  on each of them. He is responsible for student
body fi-nances,  mainly concerning those of student facilities, social
ac-tivities,  and administration. In his free moments, Rol partici-pates 
in Wesvet's activities. Last year Rol received his letter in  tennis. After
graduation this Spring, Rol hopes to attend law  school at Lincoln's Inn,
near London.  THIS YEAR'S STUDENT BODY VICE-PRESIDENT, Kay Mac-  Kenzie,
was one of the leading personalities at Western.  Some  of her activities
included Valkyrie, IVCF, and Kappa Delta Pi.  Kay's job as veep included
attending all BOC meetings, em-ceeing  assemblies and social events, and
representing ASB on  Inter- Club Council.  "RESPECTIVELY SUBMITTED, Carolyn
Brewer." As secretary  for the Associated Student  Body, Carolyn kept the
minutes of  all Board of Control meetings and was the secretary to the ASB
president. In addition she typed all general correspondence for  ASB and
records for student-accident insurance.

In spite of many length debates and difference  of opinion, this year's
Board of Control made  much progress in student affairs.  With a great deal
of the credit due to Dave  Northrup, planning for Western's Student Union 
Building got underway with hopes that the build-ing  would be ready for use
by 1958. To bring  the "SUB" closer to reality the student body  voted into
action a proposal which added all  co-op dividends to the fund and another
which  raised the student fees.  One oft he most disputed subjects, not
only by  Board members, but by all of Western, was the  athletic program
with major emphasis on foot- ball.  Ken Moffett headed the newly formed
Ath-letic  Committee which suggested additions and  changes  in the
athletic program. To further pro-mote  athletics at Western, $1800 was
appro-priated  by the Board for athletic scholarships  for 1956-1957. 
BOARD OF CONTROL MEMBERS: top row: Dan White,  Dick Walston, Ken Moffett,

TAKING CARE OF THE CLERICAL WORK of student finances   and being secretary
for the Finance Committee constituted the  main parts of Sharon Andreason's
job as Finance Secretary.  Working on the ASB budget for next year was one
of the big-gest  responsibilities of this appointed position.

Football at Western  Football had few bright moments this year for Western 
fans. It tooks five games before the Viks could register  a score and a
victory, and this was a non-conference  affair. Finishing at the bottom of
the Evergreen Con-ference,  the Vikings never did get a scoring punch 
assembled, but did turn in some fine defensive games.  Several factors
contributed to Western's bad season.  The big reason was the small turnout
at the first of the  year, and when they were hit by lime burns at the 
College of Puget Sound field, the team was practically  knocked out of
competition. Injuries to key players  Kays, Stoa, Lapp, and Randall left a
generally inex-perienced  squad for most of the games.  In the Shrine
Benefit opener, the team was edged 6-0  by Eastern Washington. They next
went against  Whitworth, the  '55 league champions, and lost an 
outstanding defensive struggle by a 13-0 score. Lime  burns during the 20-0
loss to college of Puget Sound  showed up in the next encounter as the
University of  British Columbia gained their first conference victory  in
history, 6-0.  Stepping out of the conference the only time during  the
season, the Vikings drubbed a strong Southern  Oregon team by a 19-6 score.
Pacific Lutheran was  nearly upset by the Vikmen in the Homecoming tilt, 
but the Gladiators rallied during the second half and  won 14-7. Western
was dealt a severe blow during  this contest when Bruce Randall suffered a
broken  leg. Traveling for the last two games, Western was  stopped 32-6 by
Eastern and hit hard by Central  Washington, 32-0.  Despite the dismal
season, Western rooters were  thrilled by several of the Viking defensive
perform-ances.

Central  AFTER 23 YEARS at Western's football helm, Coach Charles
Lappenbusch resigned the head coach job this year. He came  to Western from
Lewis and Clark, then called Albany College,  in 1933 after spending two
years there. A graduate of the  University of Washington, Lappenbusch
received many athletic  awards during his college career including a card
of merit for  All-American.  This year marked the end of a long and
outstanding coaching  career for the head  man as he asked relief from his
football  duties at the end of the 1955 season. (He remains at Western as
Director of Athletics.) This year was a bad one for Lappen-busch's  team;
his teams usually maintain a  strong position in  the Evergreen Conference.
 Lappenbusch is nationally known as founder of the straight   line theory
of football. He has lectured at national coaches'  conventions on this
subject and has also written books on the  straight line philosophy. Being
an excellent lecturer he is usu-ally  in demand for banquets and luncheons.
Lappenbusch has  been the granddaddy of the Evergreen, in number of
coaching  years, for quite a few seasons. He is one of the most colorful 
sports figures in the Northwest. HORSEPLAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM the  week
after the Vikings had taken their first  win of the season  over SOC.
Willie Ball is  showing a few squad members the art of  washing before
taking a shower while Don  Donahue shows he is a real artist at unty-ing 
shoe laces. He follows through beauti-fully  with his tongue. This scene
was typi-cal  for the Viking grid squad. They didn't  let a losing season
dull their sense  of hu-mor  and showed this spirit throughout the  34
games and practices.

and spirit to the games.  Hailing from Everett, Bellingham, Port Angeles
and  Carlsborg respectively, each had previous yell leading  experience in

Music by the Viking Band  On many occasions throughout the year it has been
proven  that not only quantity but also quality characterize Western's 
eighty-five piece band, under the direction of Dr. Don C. Walter.  On
December 9 the Viking band carried good will across  the border, giving one
concert in Burnaby at South Burnaby  High School and two concerts in
Vancouver at John Oliver High  School. While in Vancouver they were guests
of the Vancouver  Junior Band.  The winter tour highlighted the band's
activities in the early  months of 1956. Touring February 6 through
February 11, the  band visited Ballard High School in Seattle, Stadium High
 School in Tacoma, Shelton, Elma, Raymond, Aberdeen, Monte-sano,  Ilwaco,
Cathlamet, Kelso, Vancouver, Evergreen and  Winlock.  During the tour
Western's three majorettes, Donna Rhodes,  Sally Joubert and Margaret
Young, held clinic sessions for high  school  twirlers.  Football games
were given color by the Viking band. Pre-cision  marching and unusual
formations were a specialty of the  band, with Jerome Glass, assistant
director, and Wally Rants,  drum major, aiding Dr. Walter in the planning.
The Homecom-ing  Parade was also participated in by the band.  Sigurd
Rascher, internationally celebrated saxophonist, was  the guest artist of
the Symphonic Band. Giving two concerts  February 3, the "Paganini of the
Saxophone" was received  enthusiastically by the audience.  In January a
clinic was held for the band by Mr. Glenn  Bainum, a guest conductor who
formerly was band director at  Northwestern University.

Besides the May concert of original compositions by Western  students which
was held for the third consecutive year, the  band participated in many
springtime festivals.  An organization such as the band needs leadership.

Living  Groups  A day in the life of a typical Western  student.  The day
for all college residents be-gins and ends in the dorm or house  where they
live-their "home away  from home." If a student lives at  MRH or Edens Hall
the cafeteria at  Edens is a place of appeal three  times a day. Some
living in privately owned college residences have the  delightful job of
cooking their own  meals.  A student's room and residence may  be a place
for relaxation, fun, and  study. Day in and day out the ever-studying, 
always- learning student sits  for endless hours with books piled  around
him thinking about cramming  for tomorrow's exam.  No matter what the
student's room  is used for, it is considered his, (and  his roommate's),
for the duration of  the college year. The house is his  too, and this he
shares with the other  two, ten, or two hundred and twenty  students who
live there with him.

completion. A month  of living four in a room, clothes crammed into
closets, and two girls  per desk had its reward when part of the girls
moved into the new  section of the dorm with modern rooms and a beautiful
new social  room.  Among the activities of the gals during fall quarter
were open house  on Parents' Day and Homecoming decorations and skits. The
holiday  seasons rolled into full swing with the annual Thanksgiving and
Christ-mas  banquets. Ending the quarter's activities and as a prelude to
the  long awaited Christmas vacation, the girls partook in the Edens Hall 
tradition of Christmas  caroling.  With the coming of spring, the
residents' days were kept busy with  the Freshman Pansy Breakfast and

Senior Hall  For a decade the halls of the house at 1201 Garden have  been
ringing with the sounds of college girls' voices, laugh-ter,  and, at
times, tears. When thinking of Senior Hall, one  night the girls will never
forget is that of the Christmas  buffet, after which many of them danced
'til two. The next  morning at  four-thirty comes caroling, breakfast, and
then,  the Christmas tree party. Winter quarter they bring the craziest of
songs into the house while planning the inter-mission  entertainment for
their annual Barn Dance mixer.  In the spring comes the Mardi Gras in New
Orleans style  and picnics and drives in the country. Just behind the scene

Welcome home Grads-to a campus as gay as a  'Carousel!' Throughout
Western's campus during the 1955 homecoming week ending October 29, scenes 
and gaiety were as delightful as the theme suggests.  Assisted by 25
committee chairmen, Marilyn Scribner  and Bill Elwood, co-chairmen, began
making plans  last spring for the gala event.  The Carousel began to whirl
at the kickoff assembly, October 14. Then came the weekend with the
coro-nation  of Queen Sigrid, skit night, the football game with PLC,
alumni smorgasbord and the big climax  of the Queen's Ball.  GREAT CAESAR!
These freshettes, through a well  appreciated display of . . . their acting
talents  walked off with first prize in the 1955 Homecoming  Skits. Their
effort depicted an ancient Roman festi-val,  the likes of which contributed
to the fall of the  empire.  "PASS THE PICKLES, PLEASE." Easily
iden-tifiable,  Dean C. W. MacDonald refuels at  the Eden's Hall
smorgabord, one of the  highlights of the Homecoming ceremonies.  Big Mac
seems to have a covetous look  for that tid-bit the lady in front is
forking  away.  THE WINNAHS!! Living up to the old tradition every  other
house said "We wuz robbed," but Forest  Lane blithely ignored them and
basked in the glory  attached to winning the display competition. Daniels 
Hall will be remembered too, for its fifteen foot  high, ah, stomach
dancers.

A FEW YARDS GAINED as a PLC tackle downs a Viking at the  1955 Homecoming
game.  It was a heartbreaking 14-7 loss on a muddy field as the Viks  were
plagued by injuries. A 72-yard scoring play spirited West-ern's  only
touchdown as Bruce Randall, fading to pass, elected  to run and lateralled
to Jim  Stoa who galloped the remaining  distance to paydirt. Randall
kicked the conversion point to make  the score 7-0.  Injuries in the first
quarter and Gladiator Td's in the second  and third periods upset the Viks
although a well-fought game  was played for the Grads.  A CLIMAX GAY as the
ballooned ceiling it-self, the Queen's Ball ended the 1955  Homecoming
events. Approximately 700  couples whirled around the clown-bedecked 
armory to the music of Charlie Barnet's  twelve-piece band.  "HAIL QUEEN
SIGRID XVIII!" A royal smile by the 1955 Home-coming  Queen, Pat Putnam, as
she receives a bouquet of roses from little Nancy Hall at her coronation.
Queen Pat was es-corted  to her throne by Rol Sayler, A. S. B. president,
and  crowned by co-captain of the football team, Willie Ball.  Pat, a
senior at Western, attended by her four lovely princesses,  reigned over
the events of the thirty-second annual homecoming weekend.

 Tom Romerdahl, chairman of the affair, and his  committee, were

The Torch-Bearers  First drama presentation of the year was "The Torch- 
Bearers," a sparkling satire about the amateur stage.  The proceeds of the
"play within a play" were to go  to the Sailors' Institute "for recreation
equipment to  keep sailors off the streets and away from bad com-pany." 
And because of the death of the husband of  the leading lady, Paula Ritter
is asked to take the  part. The delightful second act, played backstage 
with all the small catastrophes of the amateur theater,  was fully enjoyed
by those  who had done amateur  acting.  Fred Ritter is completely unstrung
by his  wife's acting. The Ritters were charmingly  played by Bob Saxvik
and Sarah Hess.  After the play Paula promises never to act  again, much to
Fred's great relief  During a rehearsal at the Ritter's Mrs.  Pampinelli,
played by Lorraine Letson,  coaches Paula for her important scene. In  her
youth Mrs. Pampinelli's "acting ca-reer"  was thwarted by a sensible
husband.  She advises Paula to disregard Fred's re-marks  and objections
and launch herself on a career on the stage.

Snow-laden trees cast lengthy shadows in the after-noon  sun at picturesque
Heather Meadows on Mount   Baker. Scenes such as this are found at any one
of the  slopes of this popular ski area where enthusiasts of  the great
outdoor sport come from miles around to  try their talents on skis. 
Ability varies on the snow-covered slopes. There are  those who stand at
the bottom of the rope tow on  Peanut trying to get courage to grab onto
that men-acing  rope. They finally reach the top and stand for  an even
longer time with knees knocking and terrified  looks as they watch the
braver souls cautiously feel  their way down the hill. Having found their
"ski legs"  after a little practice, these beginners become inter-mediates
and try the steeper hills. Again practice  makes for perfection and the
more talented skiers hop  onto the chair and go all the way up. The beauty
and  serenity of the surrounding hills lends itself to the  mounting
excitement and pleasures of skiing.  Despite the possibility of broken legs
and sprains, a  true skier always comes back for more. Relaxation  and food
go hand in hand in the lodge in the late  afternoon as everyone discusses
the fun and achieve-ments  of a day of skiing at Heather Meadows.

Basketball  Only four lettermen were among the hopefuls that  greeted new
head coach Jack Hubbard this  year. And  no tall members were included in
this bunch. But Hub-bard  turned them into a conference threat, and they 
figured prominently in the title picture. They knocked  over University of
British Columbia twice, dropped  Eastern from a playoff berth, and upset
Whitworth's  chances for a title shot. Hubbard kept the squad in  top shape
throughout and used a hustling defense and  fast breaks to thwart the
opponents. Their jinx team  was the College of Puget Sound as the Loggers
beat  them three times to pull  Western into a tie for sixth  place in the
final conference standings.

HUBBARD who came to Western from  Everett High School. His first year at

1956 Cindermen  BROAD-JUMPER Darrow Nelson took first  place with this
outstanding jump against the Vancouver Olympic Club. Nelson trans-ferred 
to Wester from Skagit Valley JC  this year and turned out to be one of
Coach  Ciszek's top winners.  LOOSENING UP LEG MUSCLES  are the Western
middle  distance  men who picked up many points  for Western this spring.
Running  the practice jaunt are Gary Phil-lips,  Jim Kennett, Jerry
Johnson,  and all-conference Ted Whan.  Plentiful  A record turnout greeted
Coach Ray Ciszek for this  year's edition of the Viking track squad. Eleven
letter-men  returned to help bolster the Western running and  field attack.
 Ciszek returned to the track head spot after a year's absence. He studied
at Boston University last year for  his doctorate.  Loss of top winners
through graduation hurt the Viking  chances greatly. Several top
performers, including  Ted Whan, an NAIA finalist  last year, were able to 
take up the slack. Whan has been all-conference for  three years in a row
and played a big role in Coach  Ciszek's squad's performances.  A '100 Mile
Club' was set up this year to give  an  added incentive to get into the
best of shape. Candi-dates  had to go three and four miles a day to meet 
the deadline on running. Track for 1956 looked good,  according to Ciszek,
and he expected a strong con-tender  for the Evergreen crown.  118

hur-dlers.  The high hurdles was a strong event  for  the Vikings this year
through the con-sistent  winning of Bill Kendrick, Darrow  Nelson, and Dave
Langley.  Coach Ray Ciszek had a big squad of men to pick  from this year.
With three time all- conference and  NAIA winner Ted Whan leading the
runners, the cin-dermen  faced a rugged schedule with optimism this 
spring. Many new faces were included in the track  squad with several of
them turning out to be top per-formers  as the season progressed. Ciszek
looked for  a strong contender in the 1956 track squad.  Back row: Coach
Ray Ciszek, Bob Bouchey, Jerry John-son,  Ted Whan, Jim Kennett, Stan

Vikings Were Defending Champions  Western went into the 1956 baseball
campaign as  defending champions of the Evergreen Conference and  with a
good chance of repeating the 1955 perform-ance. Twelve lettermen gave the
Vikings a solid foundation  to work on. Three of the lettermen, Don Smith,
Bruce  Randall, and Les Knudsen, were named all-conference  last year. To
strengthen the squad further, a record  number of baseball aspirants turned
out this year.  Pitching was the question mark as this book went to  press.
Western split every doubleheader played. The  Viks received excellent
hurling from Knudsen but were  unable to find another strong starter. It
was hoped  that the hitting department would make up for the  pitching
weakness.  New Coach Jack Hubbard was enthusiastic over the  fine start the
baseball team got this season and ex-pressed  an optimistic view toward the
squad's ability  in defending the baseball crown.  120

moved into outfield positions as the  season progressed.  Left to right

outstanding athlete in high school and col-lege  Hubbard brought along an
extensive background  in sports when he stepped into the head baseball

West  helped bring many victories into the Viking  camp this spring.  Golf 
With national NAIA finalist Bob Doyle to build the team around, Coach John
Kulbitski embarked upon the 1956  golf season with plenty of optimism. Two
other lettermen,  Don West and Jerry Thone, added much strength to the 
divot-men's chances. Western was defending both con-ference  and state NAIA
titles this year.  The linksmen were downed in the first meet of the season
 but went on from there to rack up impressive victories, with  Bob Doyle
leading the squad. Coach Kulbitski expected  Doyle to be a national
finalist again this year, had hopes  that other members of the golf team
would make the na-tional  trip.  Low scores marked the early training  for
the conference meet, held at  Western this year. Bob Doyle and  Don West
were the Viking lettermen  and played number one and two all  season.
Several other lettermen gave  the squad good depth. Left to right:  Bob

Tennis  Coach Charles Lappenbusch stated that he had "the  best tennis
squad in ten years." This gives an indica-tion  of the strength displayed
by the squad this sea-son.  Only two lettermen from last year's bunch were 
back but there were more than enough newcomers to  offset this.  The squad
started off badly allowing Central to beat  them, 6 to 1. But they came
back strongly against CPS  to win, 5 to 2. Gerald Schiele, Dick Endersbe,
and Jeb  Baldi combined talents to lead the squad in the initial  meets.
Lettermen Ken Moffett and Roger Barnhart gave  much competition to any
opposing netmen. And as  this book went to press things looked very bright
con-cerning  the championship.  LONG STRETCH is required  to return this 
ball. Dick Endersbe shows springboard legs  in going up for this shot. Dick
was a major figure in tennis successes of the year.  Lettermen were scarce
when the tennis  season started, but many new men came  in to hold down the
top five spots. Fresh-man  Gerald Schiele, aided by Dick En- dersbe  and
Jeb Baldi, managed to domin-ate  play during the first of the season. It 
took the lettermen several matches and  much practice to be able to move
onto  the top rungs.  Standing left to right around Coach Lap-penbusch 
are: Dick Endersbe, Gerald  Schiele, Monte Bianchi, Joe Hartough, and  Jeb

Athlete  of the Year  This year's outstanding athlete, Ted  Whan, carried
through with the high  standards and outstanding perform-ances  in sports
required for the title.  Ted, a senior this year majoring in physical
education, has plans to be-come  a teacher and track coach in a  Washington
school system. A native of Victoria, British Colum-bia,  Ted brought many
track accom-plishments  with him to Western. He  won the Canadian
Inter-Scholastic  Hop, Step, and Jump title and holds  the Aggregate Trophy
for the  most  points scored in that meet. During  Ted's first year at
Western he took  all-conference honors in the 440 and  880. He has been
all-conference ever  since. In 1954 and 1955 he went to  Abilene, Texas for
the national NAIA  meet and placed fourth in 1954.  Selected by the
students of Western  as the outstanding Western athlete  of 1956, Ted
Whan's name joined  the roster of names of other Western athletes of years
past.  126

FRIDAY NOON and COLLEGIANS ARE OUT! Students jam  the hall as the weekly
edition of the W W Collegian appears  on the stand.  Among Western's minor
publications this year  were the Homecoming Booklet, Profile, and 
Navigator. The Navigator was something a new  student couldn't do without
as it gave the  "what, when, and where" information about  the campus. The
"who" part of the publications  was  contained in the Profile-a popular
student  phone number list. Representing just plain fun  was the Homecoming
Booklet listing activities of  that event-filled week. Left to right are

writing talent made its debut at the  end of winter quarter and once again
in spring quar-ter  in The Writer. Under the editorship of Judson Lloyd 
and Pete LeCompte this booklet displayed short sto-ries,  essays and poems
which were written by West- -  ern's students-some of which were awarded
prizes.  Covers for the magazine were designed by the art  department.

Ken Robertson, who will be  1956-57 editor also, moved up to the position
from  associate editor.  Each Friday at noon the  latest in college
happen-ings  was distributed to the students through the  pages of the
Collegian. The English 200 class and  veteran reporters made up the
Collegian staff. Many  hours went into the production of the paper. Each 
Thursday a troupe went to Cox Print Shop to make  up pages, read proofs, 
write heads, and go over  the final proof before the paper was "put to
bed."  COLLEGIAN BIGSHOTS mull  over plans of  publication. Tom Manney

Who's Who  At the top of the list on Western's campus in 1956  were the
twenty-two students selected to  represent  Western in "Who's Who Among
Students in American  Colleges and Universities," a compilation of

Freshman Class  STEPPING UP to lead their fellow freshmen through the first
 year at Western these three students fulfilled their positions  very well.
The class officers were Dick Kure, vice president;  Beverly  Bull,
secretary; and Bill Siebler, president.  With high anticipation and a good
deal of excitement,  and under the advisorship of Dr. P. H. Atteberry, the 
members of the Freshman Class began the long climb upward. Their enthusiasm
and talents made their first  profits during Western's Homecoming
activities. The  Frosh won first-place honors with their Homecoming  skit
and float. Betty Jane Ramaila graced the Home-coming  court as Freshman
Princess.  As with all students who are just beginning college,  the frosh
had many adjustments to make to their new  surroundings, but by winter
quarter they were old hands at the college business. Again getting into the
 "'swing" of things, they sponsored a mixer in Feb- ruary  and also an
assembly. One of the outstanding  activities of this class in the spring
was the cleaning-up  project at Lakewood, Western's recreation area  on the
shore of Lake Whatcom.  Sandra Adams Arlene Allen Jean Anderson Yvonne

Sophomore Class  Now old hands at the college business, the Sopho-more 
Class looked forward to another fun- and study-filled  year. Thoroughly
orientated on registration pro-cedures,  "little" quizzes and finals, they
found that  the knee-knocking and nail-biting routines of their  first
college year are over.  The Sophomores entered into the Homecoming
activi-ties  with a window display and float. Pat Brunhaver was Homecoming
princess.  Winter quarter was fairly quiet regarding sophomore  activities
as everyone settled down for a season of  work.  Recreation highlighted
Spring Quarter's activities with  the class sponsoring a mixer and ending
the year with  a Frosh-Soph joint picnic.  MAKING LONG RANGE PLANS  for the
future of Western's  Sophomore Class are President Dick Bruland, Vice
President  Julie Horstman  (seated), and Kittie Stole, secretary-treasurer.

Junior Class  Two years behind them and two ahead as the mem-bers  of the
Junior Class began another year last fall.  This is the year, when, as
Juniors, they begin student  teaching and looking forward to stepping up
another  rung of the ladder to take their places as graduating  Seniors. As
with most classes,  fall quarter activities  are mostly concerned with
Homecoming. In true tra-dition,  the Juniors entered the fun with their
Home-coming  skit and float. The main item on the agenda  winter quarter
was the Junior Prom, "Club Manhat-tan"  which was held March 2.  As spring
daze and warmer evenings rolled around, the enticing aroma of beach fires
and good food filled  the air as appetites were satisfied at the Junior
Class  Salmon Bake.  CHECKING LAST MINUTE PLANS for "Club Manhattan" are 
the officers who presided over this year's Junior Class: Dorothy  Flora,
secretary-treasurer; Pat Hollingsworth, president; and  Charlotte Rolie,
vice president.  Dell Abelein Shirley Ambers Jeanette Armstrong James Berg

Senior Class  MUCH PLANNING AND MANY DECISIONS MUST be made  by members of
the Senior Class. Chosen to lead their fellow  Seniors this year were Dave
Northrup, president; Janet Kay  Warneke, secretary-treasurer, and Bob
Doyle, vice president  (not pictured).  At the top at last, and with
anticipating  looks into the  near future, the Seniors began their final
and eventful  years as undergraduates at Western. Homecoming fes-tivities 
were done up well under the co-chairmenship  of David Johnson and Janet Kay
Warneke as the Sen-ior  Class was awarded first place in the window
dis-play  in Penny's. Hereafter they will be coming back to  the campus to
enjoy their own homecoming. The Sen-ior  Class party was held during fall
quarter and winter  quarter saw the class members again partying at the 
Senior  Banquet at the Bellingham Country Club. Dr.  Carlile was the guest
speaker for the occasion.  An exciting and perhaps nostalgic Spring Quarter
ar-rived  on campus as the Seniors' college days drew to  a  close with the
advent of Class Day, Baccalaureate,  and Graduation.  SOME OF THE BUSIEST
STUDENTS on campus were the mem-bers  of the Senior Planning Board. As
graduating Seniors pre- pared  to leave Western many plans and arrangements
concern-ing  activities, banquets, baccalaureate, and graduation had to  be
made. Those on this year's board were, back row: Dick Wal-ston,  Bob Doyle,
Ted Whan, John Boling, and David Northrup.  Front row: Evalyn Bickers,
Patricia Lunde, Janet Kay Warneke,  Elizabeth Carlson, Fern Valentine.

Klipsun  A college annual-the KLIPSUN-here is a pictorial  record of your
school year. An annual represents  much hard work and time on the part of
all those who  are concerned with its publication. But when dead-lines  are
made and the finished product is out for dis-tribution,  all that is
forgotten. There is a great deal of  satisfaction in creating a book that
people will enjoy  for many years.  The KLIPSUN began in 1913 and has
progressed to  this year's status of a bigger book with colored pic-tures. 
In future years many pleasant and fun-filled  memories will be recalled as
you glance through your  1956 yearbook and you will relive your college
days.  TOP GALS on the Klipsun totem pole take  time out from endless tasks
 to pose for  photographer. On the left is Business Man-ager  Gail
Gustafson, and on the right,  Editor Janet Soine.  SECTION EDITORS HOLD A
CONFAB and  review the layout of the annual. Each with  her own special
phase of work for the Klip-sun,  are Reita Barge, copy editor; Betty 
Harvey, art editor; Shirley  Ziegler, winter  section editor; Arlene
Overhus, fall section  editor, and Phyllis Hirni, spring section editor. 
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY are Billie Bres-nahan,  Phyllis Hirni and Shirley  Graham
as they trim and paste  pictures onto the Klipsun dummy.
