Staff The staff enjoys the pause that refreshes for the benefit of the photographer. The moral of this picture is " look what working on the Yoncopin does to you. " Editor Albert Farnell, with the custom- ary cigar, is the man responsible for this year ' s Yoncopin. The staff pretends to concentrate while they pose for their pictures. The staff, supposedly at work again, but don ' t let them fool you — the office is never in such a state of calm and order. A picture within a picture — Fred Or- man, staff photographer, is beaten at his own game.

OFFICERS President Cyrus Killgore Vice-President Beverly Blood Secretary Myrtle Lipscome Treasurer Robert Crichlow The beginning of the year brought, appropriately enough, the begining of a new organization to add interest to campus affairs and to arouse the fraternities and sororities from their customary complacent state. For years Ben Sheppard had been futively struggling to organize the non-frat group into the powerful machine of its potentialities, but it took the more dominating personality of Bob Bartley to accomplish the job. Oddly enough, this leader of the re-christened Barbs is himself a fraternity man from Colorado, which might account for his ability in whipping this unruly bunch into line. At any rate, the Greeks had a severe jolt as the Barb candidate won the first election of the year — and for the first time in history a non-frat Queen ruled Homecoming. Determined that their prestige should not be endangered by this new group, whose numbers constituted a serious menace to the supremacy of the Greeks in politics, the fraternities and sororities banded together to withstand the assault, and by carefully alloting the remainder of the campus honors to each other, and sticking to their agreement for once, they succeeded in overthrowing the Barbs. Dissension in the ranks of that group had weakened them internally and the resignation of President Bob Bartley spelled doom for the non-frats. Thus, another white hope faded and died, after a brief period of blossoming, and the Greeks heaved a sigh of relief and withdrew to rest on their laurels. The Barbs, however, had succeeded in accomplishing one very important thing — they had shown that their untouched reserves of political power can be controlled and directed to great purpose and soon the sleeping Greeks may wake again to find the invading Barbarians upon them, with more disastrous results.

of the 1938 Yoncopin With the first few balmy days of Spring, a number of students begin to wander around with that hazy look in their eyes, stumbling over their shoestrings and mumbling to themselves. Not all of them, however, are vic- tims of the love-bug. A small percentage are the unfortunate members of the Yoncopin staff, who have just been rudely awakened by the fact that the deadline for copy is only a few weeks off and that not a line has been written yet. Accordingly, a nightmare of feverish activity begins. Classes, meals, and even the all important dates are forgotten in the race with time and the printer. Students who won ' t have their pictures made, professors who decline to give necessary information concerning themselves for the faculty page, copy that gets lost and is found too late, all arouses the ire and add to the troubles of the hapless staff. In- variably, just at the time when the turmoil is at the peak, the Sponsor Contest lifts up its ugly little head and squalls for attention. Candidates come clamoring into the office night and day, making even a bigger mess of things, if possible, and students begin to demand " When ' s the yearbook coming out? " Eventually, we know not how, all the copy is turned in and off it goes to the printer. The staff breathes a sigh of relief, fondly imagining that their troubles are over — they do not pause to consider that printers are only human too, and that many a mistake must be corrected and every word be proof-read before returned for final — we hope — printing. You would think, after all this, that the staff would be entitled to a little praise for all its efforts — but no. Instead of appreciation and encouragement, insults and abuse are received. Angry students demand full public apologies because their names were misspelled, faculty members reprimand the mistreatment of their dignity and campus organizations threaten the life of Ye Editor for putting their picture on the wrong page. The staff throws up its hands and vows " never again " and means it. However, there must be a certain fascina- tion to this business of working on the Yoncopin, for every year they come back. It couldn ' t be the pay or the glory, because you don ' t get any, so it must be that, in retrospect, the staff members decide that it really is a lot of fun after all.
