Om' Faculty . . .
The Faculty 'of Friends University is one such as no large
school could equal. Our professors are experienced, well-
versed in several fields, interested in us, both as students and
individuals, and by far the majority of the FU. faculty is
willing to help any student at any time.
If a few of our "profs" seem a bit I'stiff" and lectures are
sometimes boring, remember that some courses just are not
"snaps," and we are seldom ideal students.
To each member of our faculty, then, we of the Talisman
staff say, "Thanks for your kindness and helpg not forgetting
your participation and interest in our parties and all school

Freshmen . . .
This ye-ar's freshman class was larger and better yet, or
is that what they all say.
We were introduced to college life at the beginning of
the school year by a tea in the Commons Lounge and by a
formal reception in Recreation Hall. We were soon at home
until the "sophomore trouble" came, but we weathered that
storm. Outstanding on our calendar were our freshman chapel
fall of themj, our all-school party, and our contribution to
the basketball team.
All in all, we've had a good year.

held great times for K.O.N. when old brothers were
Hail again to Kappa Omega Nu! Memories-of those
bang-up rush parties-with the I.O.M. vocal vanitiesg
ham at the Meadowlark-and "ham," Armstrongs humor.
Recruiting was good, nevertheless, and by the end of the
term the society had increased SOOW.
Then came those grand times-the Valentine Party
with "Deke" Wiley, for instance, at Droll's English Grill
-the dinner meeting at Lucien's-Hard Times Party-
Steak Frysand, of course, the annual Spring Formal
which is always a great success.
All in all the year has been a great one for the men
of Kappa Omega Nu.
The year 1945-46 opened as usual with Freshman Wfeelc and the Student
Council doing its bit to get the new students oriented. This year, by way of
introduction, we initiated the idea of having an inquiring radio announcer
interview each student-thus learning their hobbies, home towns, backgrounds.
Next came that old traditional All-School Hike, after which we literally
swam to the Civic to be the guests of Mr. Sullivan again.
Then for the rest of the year it was one activity right after the other-
that memorable Student Forum-the Skating Party-the new Life office-
cheer leaders-the trip to Emporia for the game-the Chili Feed after the
Lindsborg game here-and last but not least Clean-Up Day.
All in all it has been an interesting year. Those of us who are leaving
can wish nothing more for next year's Student Council than the same co-
operation that we have received this year.

As "never to be looked down upon again" sophomores,
we elected Dolo, Jewell, Beth, Millie, Mary Beth, and jonsey
as our leaders for the year. Our outstanding activities included
the presentation of a skit and sophomore talent at a chapel
program and an informal party held in conjunction with the

Omicafon Tau Sigma
The Omicron Tau Sigma scrap-box of memories for 1945-46 is lilled with
gaily colored prints of fun as well as the solemn, plain colors of learning,
and a variety of utensils for work-cooperation, initiative, integrity and all
other qualities necessary for a well equipped scrap-box of memories. Lifting
the lid, we see among the meetings of the year a club chili supper. It was a
welcome occasion, fitting well into a nippy November evening. With the
ripening of pumpkins came our sponsorship of the All-school Thanksgiving
Dinner. Rec. Hall was alive with mixed aromas of roast turkey, dressing,
cranberry salad, and all the trimmin's, including pumpkin pie.
Ending first semesterls activities was our january meeting with a guest
hair stylist. His suggestions were a linishing touch in good grooming-an
essential in our purpose.
One of the more important scraps in our box of memories was the State
Home Economics Club Meeting at Topeka, late in March, at which Mrs. Blair
and five O.T.S. members represented Friends University.
Meetings-demonstrations-a wiener roast-the publication of the Quar-
terly Home Ec. Newsletter-these, and more, all go into the pattern of cloth,
which neared completion in the climax of the year, the Annual Mother-
Daughter formal dinner. As always, the evening was planned by our grad-
uating Seniors, who this year were Mona Mae Harvey and Marjorie Austin.
The evening's installation service was an inspirational introduction to a new
year of O.T.S. Thus we close our scrap-box of memories.
To this year's officers and our sponsors we express our appreciation for
a year dominated by unity and happiness.
" Viqf Music"
'lBrief Musicl' was Black Masquers' presentation concerning three years of college life
for seven girls. To us who were in it, "Brief Music" was long evening rehearsals with a
break for welcome coffee made on our new hot plate. It was the smell of glue and paint
and the feel of it drying on our hands as we built the set. Then there were our gab sessions
between cues, our efforts in making sound effects backstage and in moving furniture off and
on between acts, our trips to the West Urn or the Nu-Way after rehearsals getting better
acquainted with everyone. Yes, we built the set, sold the tickets and performed or worked
backstage-in short, it was our play from beginning to end. After the last performance we
had a party at Stogsdillsf With traces of make-up still lingering about our eyes and hair
line we stretched out on the floor to relax, for then it was all over.
Black M azsqueefs
Black Masquers began this school year with a new sponsor, Lloyd jones, head of the
dramatics department. Witlu fifteen active members, work began on programs to be pre-
sented for downtown organizations. Plays, readings and musical numbers were sent to
numerous groups to provide entertainment. "Brief Music" was the three-act play pro-
duced hrst semester.
Second semester Black Masquers produced an all-school play, "The Great Big Doorstep."
This was a delightful story of a poor family in Louisiana who tried to get a house to go
with their doorstep. In this play we saw several new faces as well as those who are veterans
in dramatic work 'here at Friends.
The early spring days brought more work on programs which were to go to high schools
and civic groups in surrounding towns to present entertainment and a subtle "plug" for
Graduation will take one third of the members this year, but new members and old will
keep on providing entertainment on a larger scale than ever before.

Serving F. U.
The University Life has been an important factor of activity at Friends serving as a
powerful instrument in the hands of the student body. As enrollment increased, the paper
introduced its "postwar model" in a new larger size. Second semester saw the inauguration
of several new reporters and feature writers into the Life Staff, and as the veterans of Wforld
XXfar II returned at last to the halls of Friends, the editorial policy of Life broadened to meet
their interests as part of the student body.
Industrious as is the University Life team, it has found that there is plenty of work
in putting out a paper that pleases the public and there's a lot of fun involved, too. Fun-
even at the supreme expense of being stranded at the printer's office with nothing to fill
in a completely empty third page.
"XXfhat do you think of this for a layout for the front page?"
"Gosh, I wish these reporters would get their copy in on time!"
"Do you have time to write up that basketball game?"
These and many more were typical of the comments heard over the International Rela-
tions Office transom which leads into the Life office. For there was always something popping
in Mr. Armstrong's headquarters. If it wasnlt Mr. A. himself, it was liable to be just any-
one who had decided to drop in and blow
their top about something. Or perhaps,
late of most any afternoon, the popping
will just be the rhythmical clackety-clack
of Life's scandal machine beating out an
over-due theme for Mrs. G.
For all readers of Life, its staff has
endeavored to present in a superior man-
ner, honest reflections of faculty and stu-
dent opinion, factual reports of current
happenings, previews of future events,
sports analyses, and articles of general
concern to all. The Editorial Staff re-
gretfully leave their posts to others who
too may serve the public of Friends

The co perative bookstore is student owned and student operated, and
has been a most successful experiment as a cooperative enterprise. It is under
the supervision of a board president, Nana Tomita, manager, joan Hatfield,
and a faculty adviser, P. D. Schultz. Any student and faculty member may
be a member of the bookstore for a reasonable fee, and may thus share in
all the privileges.
Besides being one of the most promising organizations on the campus,
it is the favorite gathering place for all. Nothing gives more pleasure than
to sit munching on one's favorite candy bar while catching up on the latest
bit of gossip--fact, fantasy, or corn. Besides this, here one can obtain his
text, secure magazine subscriptions, and he is sure to leave with some Friends
The large numbers of students who are members indicate that this is one
of the most progressive organizations on the campus. Also this would and
does indicate the practicality of a campus co-op.

Seniors . . .
Looking back on this year, 1945-46, many interesting events
are revealed that will make this senior year long remembered.
Eirst on the calendar was Senior Sneak Day and the cabin
party at the Salvation Army Camp The Faculty-Senior dinner
and the Junior-Senior garden party were outstanding high-
lights of the second semester, Also the Senior Class Party
will be remembered as our last get-together as seniors of E. U.
On May 6, when we lirst marched into chapel in caps and
gownsg on move-up day, when we took our appointed places
on the stageg and on graduation day when we marched into
chapel for the last time, turned our tassels and received our
diplomasg we experienced some of the proudest moments of
our lives. Yet, we feel that this has marked a beginning
rather than an ending for all of us.

Delta Rho Alpha Nu A
A slumber party-gossip-food-and the heroic killing of a poor defenseless mouse
brought us together at the close of summer. The first event of the school year was the re-
newal of the traditional Delta Rho-AKT steak fry, then came rush week with Open House
at Dr. Cleveland's and our Bar X Ranch party at Camp Hyde. We were happy to welcome
fifteen swell pledges. Next was the cabin party at Hide-a-Wee, the terror of private initia-
tion, the pledge dinner at Droll's, and the formal initiation at Davis' with the pledges
"Ar L1 72l677If76'1' of Delta R190 Alplm N11 I f11m11i.te . . ."
Also we enjoyed our Christmas party at Sally Blaclcwoods home, the New Years Eve party,
and the Faculty Tea.
With the new semester we received three more pledges and had a Wiener roast with AKT.
The events of the spring season were Cherry Carnival with the Delta Rho "Fun Housef'
our Spring Formal in the Empire Room at the Allis. the Senior Breakfast-installation of
new officers, and a never forgettable slumber party.
Another successful year ends with orchids to our officers and members who have made
it possible that "through the years loyalty will grow within the heart of every Delta Rho."

From a rather dark and dreary start the men of Alpha Kappa Tau finished this
year as one of the most outstanding and progressive social organizations of Friends
University. Nearly all of the men of AKT were in the service until the second semesier

who had stayed in the swing of things.

Room in March, and later enjoyed the semi-formal at Steffens. Of course the crowning
touch was our Spring Formal. To say that it was successful would he a gross under-
statement, hut just ask any of the lucky people who were there.

Again the Singing Quakers, Friends University's choral organization of thirty voices, look back over
a year of creativeness through music. Our director, Miss Elsa Haury, head of the voice department, ever
instilled in "her girls" the desire to search out beauty and learn anew how to appreciate it. Through
her endless efforts and sincere approach to perfection, the Singing Quakers have been a musical lift
to the campus. A
The hrst public appearance of the group this year was at the college session of Yearly Meeting,
University Friends church. Following, performances for civic clubs and community groups made this
an interesting and busy yearAa Sunday afternoon Christmas concert for the USO, performance for jr.
Hypatia Club, the Wichita Art Association, the Wichita Music Club, the Kiwanis Club, several chapel
programs and to climax the year, our annual spring concert in Alqmnae Auditorium. Among the'selec-
tions offered was Gasparinis Mass in G Minor, which the Singing Quakers did in its entirety, as their
pre-Easter musical offering, An accompanying long work was a choral ballad, the musical setting
to Edna St. Vincent Millay's poem, "The Harp
Weaver." Assisting as baritone soloist was Olen
Patricia Osler, soprano, and Mary Frances
Oliver, contralto, have been soloists worthy of
recognition, and Elma Barker, accompanist, has
proved the value of ability, cooperation, and true
Singing Quaker officers include Iola Powell,
president, Maribel Poundstone, vice president,
Anita Wheeler, secretary-treasurer, Eloyse Morgan
and Carol Brown, librarians, and Dorothy Pen-
nington, student director.
The name, "Singing Quakers," has stood for
the finest in music for years. For all who have
helped retain its standard this year, Miss Haury
would have you remember that "of all the arts,
music comes nearest to revealing the secret of
life's mystery. It is a borderland art between the
tangible, objective, material world of expression
and the intangible, unseen world of spirit." HMA BARKER ELSA HAURY

In retrospect we feel that as a class the juniors have accom-
plished and enjoyed a number of "pleasant incidentsfl First of
all, how could we forget the Senior Sneak Day--or perhaps more
vividly, the night before, the flat tires, and Lzimont's home runs
in baseball. Moreover, we enlightened the whole school of our
activities and mishaps in the junior chapel program. Then, as
another activity during an already rushed reason was the Christ-
mas All-School Party wherein we paiajsed together for games,
music and food. Perhaps most of all we remember the junior-
Senior Garden Party at which we felt pangs of sorrow as well
as joy in the thought of future separations from our so amiable
companions, the seniors. U
Last of all we might mention the realization that next year
we are the seniors and leaders of our school-and we are humbled
as well as challenged as we look toward our new tasks.

Now- it's just a penny in a piggy
bank. But soon his piggy will be
full. Then the pennies will be taken
to a real savings bank.
The bank will put his pennies
to work. Some of these pennies
almost certainly will be invested in
electric utility securities. Banks pre-
fer these securities because sound
business management has made
them a dependable investment - as
dependable as electric service itself.
So, the little boy has a personal
stake in the electric power industry.
Practically every American has-
millions as direct stockholders,
other millions as savings bank de-
positors and life insurance owners.
This is the American economic
system. lt's called capitalism. It's a
good system. It helped make Amer-
ica great. And it will continue to
open doors of opportunity for all lit-
tle boys and girls with piggy banks.
