Peacock WELCOME FROM.. THE PRESIDENT You are going to hear the word welcome many times dining the next week. Each expression of welcome will be a sincere one. All of us who have been at Upper Iowa want you to know what a wonderful group of students we have. The faculty members are very much interested in each student and espe dally in each new student. College should be hard, challenging work. College should be fun, because of a sense of accomplishing and of growing in knowledge and social stature. We are here, to guide and assist you in yoir. experiences. Welcome to a new world i'oi you. Eugene E. Garbee President Upper Iowa University DEAN OF COLLEGE A most cordial "WELCOME" to new students and a "GLAD TO SEE YOU BACK" to former students. We hope the 1957-58 school year will be both profita Lie and pleasant for you. For the most part, the year will be what you make it. A positive, friendly attitude will result in a multitude of lasting friendships. A planned study schedule, with careful attention to detail will provide the background and knowledge which is needed for satisfactory progress through college. Success in college depends, in some degree, upon one's ability to put first things first. College attendance is a full-time undertaking. The most satisfying results are obtained by those who are willing and eager to learn, by those who take an active part in campus activities, and by those who assume the responsibilities of mature college students. The faculty is here to help you. Call upon them fur assistance with any phase of your college life. DEAN OF MEN TO THE FRESHMEN: We are glad that you have chosen to join us, and we feel it is up to us to help you get settled. Many things will be new experiences and others will have a certain familiarity. Get acquainted with the location of places— find out as much as you can. Don't hesitate to ask if you don't know. Lots of time may be saved by asking questions. It is not necessary to dig something out that someone else already has turned up. [Participate in extra-curricular activities because they are a part of educational facilities. Investigate all the possibilities, but don't remain a sampler—the main course has more to it. Watch your newspaper and the bulletin boards—know what is going on. Don't get left behind— and out. Despite all the other activities, remember that your classes are the most important thing about college. Get something from them. We are here to help you. Don't guess, look up somebody who ought to know an answer and find out. Get acquainted. The sooner you know your way around, the more at home you will feel. Wilson C.

English Conference To Be Held Here On October 4 And 5 The Iowa College Conference of English Teachers will meet at Upper Iowa University on October -1 and 5. the Public Relations Office announced recently. College English professors from many Iowa institutions will attend this conference. The lectures will be open to the public, however, professors attending the conference will be charged a slight registration fee.-, One of the speakers who will eclure at the conference is Richard Chase. Mr. Chase is a collector of folk tales and dances, and it is he who collected the famous Jack Tales which we are so familiar with. Mr. Clia.se did not write the Jack Tales, but he did travel into the mountain country of North Carolina to study and copy these folk tales. They appear in his books in exactly the same way they were told to him. These stories have been handed down from generation to generation, but had never been seen on the printed page until Mr. Chase made his famous collection. Besides the popular Jack Tale*, Mr. Chase has also collected an •H:iiiiii!i:i:i:i:i!!ii;i::!nii;:;!:i;i:;:iii;!ii;;;:;-i;;:iii!!;;:ii:i;:;i-i:-i:1::i Welcome!

Enjoy Yourself- , Well Help You Are you a little frightened? A lit'.le nervous? Perhaps a little mixed up? Don't let it bother you, it's normal. After all, beginning college isn't something you do every day. There are a hundred md one or two things to learn -.(bout Upper Iowa, and naturally it takes some time. No one expects you to do it over night. But just to help you out •! little and to make you feel more •it home anj at ease we've hustled up this special edition of the Collegian. In this paper you will find a wealth of information about UHJ. We'll tell you something about the buildings on :-ampus. something about the traditions of Upper Iowa, and ^ive you some information about ?ocial organizations which you may eventually want to join. Of course, we can't answer all your questions here, but if we/<do leave something out, you pan always ask any student or faculty member. They will be glad to •give 'you the scoop." You'll find •veryone friendly and cooperative, and everyone wants to help vou get along. The U in UIU lands for YOU, you know, and we'll do everything we can to lelp you out. You'll find the schedule for •"reshinan Week printed in this paper, so in case you lose yours —and one usually always does— you'll have a spare. In connection with Freshman Week, we would like to make one comment. Doij't let the 'required' scare you away from the Picnic. This is an annual event and if you miss it, you'll regret it. The Freshman Picnic is where you really begin to uet acquainted with your classmates. In addition to this, you meet the faculty. The highlight of the picnic, is, of course, tile "Jack Story." These stories originated in the southern mountains and constituted the main form of entertainment for th<? mountain folk. Dr. Eugene E. Garbee, President of Upper Iowa, can tell these stories as no one else can. Don't miss this. Besides all this, you get a free meal. Another event it would be well not to rni.ss is the all college mixer. Here you will begin to meet the upper classmen of UIU. There will be dancing and refreshments and lots of fun for everyone. And then of course, on Saturday, you can begin to boost Upper Iowa a-s the Peacocks go against LaCrosse State in the first football game of the year. You have a lot to look forward to in the next week—not to men- '<jge of all of it .vjrry. It only happens once.
