the unending lines of . . .
Mid-September! The campus bustles with activity as a sea of new faces appears. The
sophomores return to act as guides for the new freshman. Various activities are
planned to integrate the fiedglings into their new surroundings. The big brother-big
sister system introduces freshmen to sophomores, who are ever-present to soothe over
the bumps of that first week.
The freshman suddenly begins to feel like part of the University family as he par-
takes of the merriment of Orientation. With mixers, tours of Washington, campfires,
Faculty Night, and the Sophomore Show filling the social calendar, there is little time
left for anything else. Nevertheless, the Deans do get a chance to greet the new class.
Words of encouragement and advice are aptly offered to them.
After the formalities of introduction, the sophomores concentrate on the rigors of the
Orientation program, which exists in memorable style with Kangaroo Kourt and its
telling consequences. Retaliation is the order of the day as the Soph-Frosh football
game takes place. Eventually, all seem quite content to settle down to the serious
pursuits of learning.
To the returning upperclassmen, new bu.ildings are in evidence. The boys are the
proud possessors of a new dormitory-Conaty Hall. On this side of Michigan Avenue,
another building is going up. This is to be the Social Center, which will replace
Shahan basement and the Dugout as the meeting places of the masses.
After the unending lines of Registration have been fought, and all the bills have been
paid, we finally get our green class cards. Should these present a problem, another line
will bring us to the Sectioning desk. Fortitude is necessary, and problems are solved.
The next stop is the Book Store, and one more line? Rumor has it that Simplified
Russian Grammar is still on order.
Moving upstairs to McMahon Foyer, the hour strikes and the place swells with the
activity of students converging in brief conversation. In another few minutes, the foyer
empties as classes are about to begin. A tardy student swings through the door and
makes a dash for the stairs. '
Along with note-taking, the student quickly learns that there is much knowledge
to be found outside class. Mullen Library is the next stop. The stacks contain many
reference books whose material may be incorporated into term papers. seminar reports
or English themes. The College Library also is a refuge where one can find books
geared to the courses of an undergraduate. The juniors and seniors make use of their
different divisional libraries. "
The other side of college life is introduced by the Sophomore Cotillion held at the
Presidential Arms. Anxiously, dates are made, plans are set, and flowers are ordered.
The evening gets under way in grand style. The culmination of a magnificent evening
of dancing is the coronation of the Sophomore Queen. This year, regal Kathy Ruegger
took the honors. Another part of the social season is the fraternity-sorority sponsored
dance. Sigma Beta Kappa and the Columhians ioined forces and came up with "Like
Dance" or Washington Square on Saturday Night. Black leotards and straggly beards
were the keynote of the evening. lngenuity reigned supreme with both costumes and
Autumn weather brings football to CU's stadium. Fraternity brothers, seminarians.
and independents play each other for the championship. The inevitable confusion on
the field always provides the sports fan with some good hearty laughs. Half-time finds
the athletes prostrate on the field, amazed at the length of the quarters. As the final
play is made, all join arm-in-arm and head for the Family to discuss the game over a
few sociable beers.
For those who have special athletic ability, there is the inter-collegiate program.
Endurance and strength are sorely tried by the cross country team. Daily workouts
are necessary to maintain the peak of ability. Inclement weather is no determent to
the runner, and not infrequently do the spectators see a mud-covered athlete stretching
toward the finish line.
Teamwork is the key to CU's success on the soccer field. The apparent ease with
which the ball is moved belies the hard work of practice needed. For the spectator
soccer is an exciting game. The players always give a good show, using their hegdg
as well as their feet to make that goal. Shouts from players and fans 511 the Stadium
as CU scores again.
Win, lose, or draw, the contests all prove exciting. The important element is the
integrating of skill, knowledge, and spirit. The personal satisfaction of a participant
cannot be matched as he knows he has done his best. Need one ask more?
