Talisman to Mrs. Mary Greenfield, whose quiet per-
sonality has contributed vitally to the development
oi steadtastness and loyalty in the student body. She

"Upon a sunny Kansas plain
Our college towers rise high."
l-low often have we sung those lines and as we have looked at those towers
they have become a symbol of high ideals and high scholastic standards. 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."

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.

Rankin, Mary Greenfield
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
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.

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."

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
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."

The Talisman is a summary of the year's highlights. 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.

"Do you have the ad list made out yet?" "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,
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
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.

That was one promise that really tested our loyalty. 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

Next came the regular eventsethe horrors

to prove it, Dorothea Doles, Ruth Wells, loan

even heard wedding bells ringing clear from

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
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.

Kappa Omega Nu has carried out several stags, which were very success-
ful, one joint party with our sister society and two date parties. The first date
party was held at Meadow Lark golf course on St. Valentines Day, the second
was our Spring Dinner, which we held at Wolf's Cafeteria.
All in all, Kappa Omega Nu has had a very successful year and we look
forward to next year with high ambitions and goals.

The Alpha Kappa Tau society was reorganized this year because all its
members had left the campus. The chapter, therefore, was composed entirely
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"

-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

ginia Clark, secretary

Ross, program chairman,
-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.

Americans like the word "you"...they like to hear
it, like to use it. They like, especially, the passessive
words that go with its use-"your" and "yours."
American ad men write "you" capy...American
salesmen address you directly. Radio commercials,
magazine and newspaper ads appeal directly to
yy. That's because you like to be called "you."
But it's no trick of copy writing, no clever English-
slinging, when we tell you that K.G.8-E. land most
of the other power companies like itl is yy
business. From your savings, either individually or
through life insurance and trust funds, comes the
capital to build K.G.8.E. From your use of our
service came the revenues that keep K.G.8.E.
going. From your work in other industries camo
the supplies that K.G.8-E. uses, year in and year
out. from your friends and neighbors come the
hard-working employees of K.G.8.E. From your
government comes necessary regulation.
Yes, it's your business in every sense...to have...
and to hold.
