For those reasons, the scholastic organization of Friends University has chosen the tower as its symbol. The Order of the Tower was organized in l93l for the purpose of stimu- lating and recognizing achievement in the scholastic field among the present student body. All graduates with an average of 2.5 credit points or above join the association of all those honor graduates of years past. From the Senior Class of l945 were chosen three new members. Gloria Swanson, graduating with high honors, Ruby Elsey and Shirley Stuart, each graduating with honors, were given the scarlet sash in chapel on insignia Day. The scarlet sash is the symbol of courage to strive on to higher standards of thought and culture. The Order of the Tower also stimulates scholarship among lower classmen by offering two scholarships annually to the first semesters highest ranking freshman and sophomore. Millie L, Cossell was awarded the freshman scholar' ship. Esther Shaw and Verdene Dodge tied for honors in the sophomore class. We wish to take this opportunity to acknowledge those who attained the high honors and to express our appreciation to the organization that helps to make the words of our alma mater more meaningful. "Where dreams are dreamed and visions seen High pointing like her towers." GLORIA SWANSON SHIRLEY STUART RUBY ELSEY Gertrude Stutzrnann, treasurer: Ruby Elsey: Fernetta Dodge: lsabel Lauterbach: C.

Sfudenf ounci The Student Council is not only an actively-independent organization serving student needs, but is the acting liaison between the students and administration of the university. ln this way an effort is made to put into effect those democratic ideals which should predominate on the liberal arts campus. ln full knowledge that student cooperation is essential to the effective function- ing of its leader-organization, the Council sought this cooperation. Though much has been done to increase campus "awareness" of current problems, needs, and opportunities for service, there remains much that is yet to be done. The traditional all-school hike opened the year's round of social events. Food, skits, and the annual Civic entertainment filled out the evenings program. The weather was fair and clear and many students turned out to share the gaiety. As a Christmas project, the Council sponsored the collection of gifts to be sent to War Relocation Centers. Excellent response on the part of the students and faculty made the effort well worth while. Spring activities make campus history, and the Student Council is responsible in part for current history. A social chapel featured food and Truth or Conse- guences, with professors taking their chances along with the rest. Clean-Up Day is the Council highlight of the year, when for half a day erst- while lazy bookworms are put to work in a miniature work-camp, of a kind. This year the building was dusted from top to bottom, with certain unfortunate omissions: nonetheless, the effect was not bad. To be remembered is the excellent menu of the day, and the skit which followed. ln its function as Lounge administrator the Council did little this year, planning rather to make extensive additions to the Commons Lounge when priorities and finances would permit. The permanent Lounge fund, to which each student con- tributes, increases with each new enrollment, and it is hoped that within a short time new facilities for improvement of the Lounge will be available. Perhaps the chief venture to secure all-school action was the Student Forum in which students drew up a list of recommendations to be sent to the Secretary cf State, on the threshold of the San Francisco Conference. With the year ending, we look back over past achievements, realizing that much has been done, but wishing even more might have filled the year's activities. We look confidently to the future and what shall be accomplished with the added impetus of efficient leadership and an interested student group. H. E. Crow, Mona Mae Harvey, Veryl Hinshaw, Isabel Lauterbach, Harold Olmstead, Mary Lou Rankin, Mary Greenfield jfzfaz ociafy ounci To promote a spirit of friendliness, good will, and cooperation among the four Greek letter societies and to regulate their social activities in an orderly and judicious manner-are the aims of the lnter-Society Council. At their first meeting, the Student Council always elects a president to preside over the lnter-Society Council representatives elected by each of the four societies. This year lsabel Lauterbach, an lota Theta Mu, was elected to the presidency, with Mary Lou Rankin representing Delta Rho Alpha Nu, Veryl Hinshaw, Alpha Kappa Tau, Harold Olmstead, Kappa Omega Nu and Mona Mae Harvey, Iota Theta Mu. We felt especially fortunate in having Mrs. Greenfield and Dr. Crow as our able sponsors. To acquaint the new students with the various societies, our first activity of the year was to present a panel discussion in chapel telling of the ideals and characteristics of each organization. We were happy to be able to help the Alpha Kappa Tau's re-establish their society, which had a complete loss of membership on the campus. The Council next concentrated its energies on improvements for the rush sea- son. Many suggestions and plans were considered and from these a system was worked out which, we hope, effected a calmer, saner and more enjoyable rush season. Another control exercised by the lnter-Society Council is scholastic. All active members making less than a C average in all work carried must withdraw from active membership until the beginning of the following nine weeks period. li at that time their grades average C in all work carried, they may be reinstated into active membership in their respective societies. btuhp tu sham tbpselt appruheh unto ent, a work: man that neehetb nut tu he -1. asbameh, rightly hihihing the tnurh uf truth. 11 Timothy: 2:15 4 p + gfucfsnf Ufiziafian cqaaociafion Looking back on the year l944-45 there is revealed an interesting number ot events. Several members re- turned irom summer projects and Estes Park with re- newed vigor and enthusiastic reports. Big-little sister tea and the formal reception started social activities rolling early in the year. Campus visitors sponsored by the S. C. A. have included Eleanor Gants of the Student Volunteer Movement: Lois Crozier, regional secretary of the Rocky Mountain Region S. C. A.: and Hilda Ben- son, traveling secretary for the World Student Service Fund. Hilda is the author of "The Dispossessedf' the play which helped bring such a wonderful response to the WSSF drive. Cherry Carnival afforded both a profit- able and enjoyable evening, thanks to the cooperation of everyone concerned. The clothing drive sponsored during April in cooperation with the national drive for clothes for Europe brought stacks of used articles to fill Leon's barrel. Gospel Band became very active this year under the direction of Lowell Roberts and traveled quite extensively to places near and tar. The limited iew who were able to attend the regional conferences at Topeka and Manhattan returned to the campus with new vision of the potentiality of the Student Christian Movement. Whether our weekly meetings were talks by people like Dean Faulkner, Robert Cope, returned mis- sionaries, Mr. Gebhardt, or Bill Little: songfests with Marjorie Hyer: or quiet Worship, the words of this prayer were never out of place- "Lord, use me, Lord use me To live and work with Thee To build a world where men from hate And greed are tree." T e ., f 5 5 i is f 2 - l :Sling ing Quaffsu This year the Singing Quakers is made up of twenty-three womenls voices directed by Miss Elsa Haury, head of the voice department. Miss Haury's endless energy and enthusiasm builds within "her girls" a desire to approach perfection. The first public appearance of the group this year was at the University Friends Church on college day at the Yearly Meeting. Then came chapel pro- grams, two fifteen-minute broadcasts at KFH, programs downtown, and two concerts, one in February and one in May. Variety was the keynote to the programs presented. Religious and secular music, early and modern, were used. A part of an old ltalian mass was under- taken, a Deems Taylor arrangement of the Alfred Noyes poem, "The High- wayman," in which Olen Gowens and Harold Olmstead had baritone solos, and "The Ballad of Sir Humphrey Gilbert," were the longer works. Favorites among the shorter numbers were "Largo," "Omnipotence," "On the Steppesf' "Ave Maria," and of course "Three Blind Mice." Patricia Olser and Vivian Newby, soprano and con- tralto soloists respectively, added much to the program with their thrilling solos. Elma Barker's ability, faithfulness and pleasantness as the accompanist of the group will not soon be forgotten. The officers included lola Powell, president: Thelda Delamarter, vice-presidentg Wilma Brazill, secretary- treasurerg lewell Fritz, librariang and Vivian Newby, student director. The name "Singing Quakers" has stood for the finest in music for years. We who are here in these difficult times must ever strive to keep that name excellent now. To Miss Haury, Elma, Vivian, Pat and all of the others who make up this group, we say, "Your task is well done."

By looking through its pages, We can see what has been accom- plished this year, and it will help us remember what good times we have had at Friends. We have had a good group ot friendly, loyal, and hard-Working students this year. Although they have been very busy, it is through their interest and efforts that the year proved to be so successful. This book is for you, the students ot Friends University. We hope it will bring you enjoyment now and in the years to come.

"Where's the sig cut for Bucks?" "That society copy isn't in yet-guess we're going to have to make up some news for this issue again." "What am l going to do, Chief-l've lost the copy for that big Mueller ad." And so on into the night. This is "Life"-"University Life"-at Friends University. Remarks such as these may give the impres- sion that getting out the "Rag" is pretty much of a grind every other week-but take it from the staff, it really isn't as bad as we may make it sound sometimes. The bi-weekly adventure of writ- ing and assigning copy, chasing down advertisements, and the final orgy of proofreading, setting up the paper, and writing filler to make things come out even is the best fun in the world. In short, it's "Life". During the year l944-45, Editor Ruby Elsey has been ably assisted by Gertrude Stutzmann, the industrious business man- ager, and several good reporters. The staff has not been large, but it has worked. lt's an experience more students should have and we only wish more would become interested. We've tried to make the "Life" this year an expression of the school-of its joys and its sorrows and its high points with perhaps a little less emphasis on its lower phases. Our purpose has been more than that-we've tried to state some definite ideas about religion and life and the policy of the college and the attitude of the students toward their college and their lives. We hope we've succeeded! For where theres "Life", there's hope! "Student Owned and Operated" An experiment in cooperative enterprise, the university book- store is organized to serve student needs and provide a recrea- tional gathering-place during each school day. Not only are textbooks and supplies available, but here one may also purchase current books of outstanding merit. Magazine subscription service is offered, and a telephone has been installed for student use. Soft drinks and candy are an important feature of the co-op sales program. A co-op in every sense of the word, the bookstore is owned and operated by student and faculty members. Any student is eligible to join the organization, and members share in the profits of the bookstore, when they are such as to guarantee redistri- bution in the form of rebates. During the year the bookstore is administered by a bookstore board, elected from the membership, and a manager, the latter chosen from applications made to the board. The large percentage of students who are actually members would indicate the widespread belief in the practicality of a cam- pus co-op. Other aspects of campus life are directed to this end, but none provide a more practical demonstration of student co- operation. With an anticipated increase in enrollment, the book- store may become an even more integral part of the university, expanding and serving to meet most effectively the needs of the college in this respect.

When six girls survive a rush week such as was experienced last October and come out tripled in number, in happiness and common good will, you understand the seriousness ot a Delta Rho pledge. We started the year with the traditional cabin party at ldylwood followed by a dinner at Droll's bidding au revoir to Marjean Carr and Betty Kistler and bon jour to our new spon- sor, Miss Gahagan. Something new was added when the Delta Rho Alumni entertained us at a barbecue. Then came the inevitable rush week. Again, Qpen House was held at President and Begin. :Ego mir PHYLLIS HOYT ....

Our last project of the month was sponsoring the All-School Halloween Party with its ghastly ghost walk through the un- finished part of the building. And, believe it or not, all that happened in just one week. "l promise to cooperate in all its projects and serve the society in every Way." Next came the regular eventsethe horrors of private initiation, the pledge dinner at the ever-popular Droll's, the cabin party for the pledges, then the impressive ceremonies of formal initiation at Mary Lou Rankin's home. Other formal events of the season were the Christmas dinner and party and the annual Faculty Tea. Cupid was especially busy this year and to prove it, Dorothea Doles, Ruth Wells, loan Hatfield, and Betty Pedhe received diamonds and passed chocolates. All of which goes to prove that Delta Rho still remains a com- paratively reliable insurance agency against a life as career Woman or old maid. We even heard wedding bells ringing clear from Valley Center for Bill and Louanne. The end of the semester brought the usual events-Cherry Carnival, Spring Formal, Alumni Meeting, Senior Breakfast and last of all installation of new officers. Looking back over the year's activities, we breathe a sigh of satisfaction and sin- cerely repeat . . . "And loyal to Delta Rho Alpha Nu at all times." Uofcz, Ugsfcz u To review a year of lota Theta Mu is to live again many times filled with excitement, fun, dignity, and sentiment. ln such a group we find a satisfying variety of activities and a closely "bound" comradeship born of a common interest. Tradition fills the lota Theta Mu year with certain things-things which we like to recall afterwards, along with the "extras" squeezed into a free Friday night. Never forget the hike to the sandbar, with buried shoes, scratched legs, the snazzy fireplace and the wonderful food. Open House at Dean Shultz-Rush Week, seeing West Side from a hayrack, a magnifi- cent turkey dinner and an entertaining program-twenty-five grand pledges who survived in- itiation-a private initiation ended with such fun on a rainy night in the nice empty house in the suburbs-formal initiation, when pledges became one of us-pledge party in the form of a scavenger hunt-Christmas party at the home of Mrs. Burch, who made a grand sponsor this year-caroling party with our brother Kappa Omega Nu's-Dad-Daughter Valentine Party, which made us forget the man shortage, with our best beaux-Alumna Tea with fourteen guests, some of which were lota Theta Mu's before it changed its name to the present one- Spring Formal, most important event of the year, where we were transported to an island for an evening, and had such a lovely time. Then came the Senior Farewell, and the end of the year. Perhaps every annual asserts that this year has been the best and next year will be better. That is the way we should feel, and that is the way all lota Theta Mu's do feel at the close of this memorable year.

LEE NELSON President LEON BROWN Vice-President IAMES BARRETT Secretory VERYL HINSHAW CLARENCE THOMPSON I. C. CAMPBELL The Alpha Kappa Tau society was reorganized this year because all its members had left the campus. The chapter, therefore, was composed entirely of freshmen. The Alpha Kappa Tau alumni were very helpful in rushing, initiating, and reorganizing. We are also indebted to Dr. Arnold Verdiun for his assistance as sponsor and adviser. His Work has been most helpful. We have lost to the armed services Iohn Havens and our president, Lee Nelson. lim Barrett, our secretary-treasurer, Was forced to leave college because of illness. Their departure cripples our society-but We Wish them the best of luck. Vernon Smith carries on the work of Lee Nelson. We have enjoyed being together in spite of our small number. The limited manpower has "fenced in" our activities, but not our spirit. An Alpha Kappa Tau will always strive to be worthy of the motto: "A Good Man I Admire" Gqfylga Kappa micfcon au L ma PEN to all Home Eco- nomics Students is the National Organization of Omicron Tau Sigma, the society for college girls interested in Home Eco- nomics. -I-HS year we acclaimed a new sponsor, Mrs. Robert Burch, who has been helpful to us in making our projects suc- cessful. By her side has been our worthy cabinet: President, Lucille French: Viceelllresident, first se- mester, Esther Shaw, and second semester, Vir- ginia Clark, secretary and treasurer, Charlotte Ross, program chairman, Irene Roe-mbach. . -ERVICE-Yes, we are noted for adding that special something to par- ties and banquets called food. We have had some wonderful projects of our own. This year we gave an all-school Chili-Bean Fiesta, which was some- thing new for our de- partment, we served a luncheon for visiting de- baters at Friends, and the highlight of the year was our annual Spring Banquet for our Mothers. The latter part of the year found us with a new project, that of ree decorating our depart- rrient's class-room. Leav- ing these projects we hope to make our de- partment as attractive and helpful to others as it has been to us. Q.
