Professor of Greek The purpose of the College of Liberal Arts is to meet the needs of modern education. In addition to the general pro¬ gram provided by the typical college, special courses are pro¬ vided for students in the prelimnary work of business admin¬ istration, dentistry, engineering, law, medicine, nursing, and theology, and students may fulfill all the requirements of teachers’ certificates. The administration is alert in the matter of efficiency in instruction, and insists on the very highest possible degree of excellency in all departments. The stand¬ ard for regular degrees compares favorably with that of the best among our institutions of higher learning. The tone of the institution is high in morals and scholar¬ ship. It has been and is very successful in stimulating and preparing students to do satisfactory work in recognized graduate, professional, and research institutions, in the United States and Canada.

Professor of Secondary Education Ol)£ Oeacfyers (Lolle e During the last few years the growth of the Teachers College has been phenomenal, and in accordance with that growth many readjustments and extensions have been necessary. The college has now outgrown the modern, sanitary building, which was built for it seven years ago and which at that time seemed to be entirely adequate. Next year it will occupy as much floor space outside this building as within. Its faculty now consists of twenty-three thoroughly trained specialists. Its departments of instruction now include Secondary Education, Elementary Education, Physical Education, Home Economics, and Manual Training. All departments lead to special certificates. The Training School is the laboratory for supervised teaching. A complete reorganization has been effected for the coming year. Hereafter there will be the Secondary School, the Elementary School, and the Kindergarten-Primary School. The Secondary School will include the Senior High School and the Junior High School. The old academy, whi ch a few years ago was reorganized as the secondary department of the Teachers College, will be retained as the Senior High School. It is fully accredited with the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. It will continue to offer unusual opportunities to those who wish to prepare for college entrance, as well as to those who wish merely to complete their high school work. The Junior High School will consist of a new ninth grade and of the seventh and eighth grades, which formerly belonged to the Elementary School. Under the reorganization, the Elementary School will consist of an intermediate room, a demonstration fourth-grade room, and a second primary room. The Kindergarten-Primary School will occupy the present location of the Kindergarten. The combination of the first grade and the kindergarten will be of distinct advantage in the training of primary teachers. With this readjustment, the future of the Teachers College is very promising. Its duties and responsibilities moreover are very great. During 1923-4 it enrolled 582 college students for teacher training. There are two hundred candidates for certificates for 1924. It is the hope of all the members of the faculty that this college may grow in its capacity to serve the state. Par e Twnity-llirce Administration ROY DEAL A.M.

Professor of Vocal Music, and Director of Choral Music The College of Fine Arts was formed in 1920 by uniting the schools of Music, Expression, and Art. The School of Music has grown so rapidly the past year that several new rooms had to be put at its disposal. Each department has strengthened its courses with the result of in¬ creased enrollment. There have been some splendid recitals, notably those for two pianos and Gilbert and Sullivan’s opera, “Pinafore”. The School of Expression is a vital part of the College. It has been responsible for some excellent plays this winter, in fact, the best presentations that have been given on the campus. At present the School is all “puffed” up over the acquirement of Theta Alpha Phi, national honorary dramatic fraternity. The School of Arts has produced some fine examples in poster work as well as in the type known as wood-cuts. There is an enormous amount of talent on the Wesleyan Campus, and it expects to find new and favorable means of expression in the reorganization of the Art School under the new Art Director.

Jensen was very prominent in athletics. He played halfback on the reserve football team. When track season came he was Wesleyan’s ablest contender in the high hurdles. Virgil was a charter member of Upsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Tau. The present Sophomore class is very proud of their claim to this departed Wesleyanite. The man is yet to be found who ever saw Jensen angry or out of sorts. His genial smile greeted everyone every¬ where. The fellows called him, “Speedy”.

Let us all remember Glenn’s words, “Play the game, and play it hard, and in sportsmanlike manner.” May we feel his influence in our heart, mind and spirit. W e can ask ourselves, “Why was it Glenn?

The scholarship of the Secondary School has a high standard of excellency. The teaching staff is of the same high type of ability as found in the best classes in the University. This gives the students of the Secondary School an unusual opportunity not only for scholar¬ ship, but they have the same privileges as the students of the Uni¬ versity in the social and cultural life found in such a University.

In the first place, each member of the quartet has an excellent voice, which he handles well. Then, too, the boys have been trained so that each one loses his own personality in a group consciousness as he sings. This enables the hearer to get unity of effect. The voices have this same quality, and blend as the notes of one instrument. M iss Sara Marshall, director of the quartet, has given much time and careful attention to their training. She has developed especially their ability to interpret music in a satisfying way. The quartet consists of Clinton Swengel, first tenor; Roy Fager, second tenor; Harry Vedder, baritone; and Jean Bader, bass. They accompany the Wesleyan Male Glee Club on trips, and expect to give a home concert. They also plan to do some concert work this summer. Page Eighty one Fine Arts (tboir The purpose of this organization is to furnish music at the First Methodist Church, and to enable the students to get first hand knowledge of, and experience in, the best of church music. The University Chorus, which includes the First Church Choir, other students, and interested towns-people will present Elijah, the famous oratorio, during the May Festival, May 5 and 6. Among the members of the First Church Choir are the fol lowing students: Bertha McClain Rex Bartholomew James Buxton Ivan Farnsworth Cecil Farnham Lloyd McGrew Fletcher Price Roland Beebe Edward Novak Howard Thompson Roy Fager Harvard Hull Thelma Armbruster Clarice Armstrong Velma Bush Marie Cowgill Hyldred Davies Mildred Fellers Hazel Furman Charlotte Gantz Hortense Hazen Nellie Hedges Mildred Hoffman Ruth Hosman Gertrude Hutchison Frances Larson Florence Marks Vera Ross Reba Sharp Alice Stebbins Georgia Swiggart Elva Trede Twyla Warren Florence Wing Helen Mills Mildred Ruth Crider Mary Champ Ethel Evans Jennie Crook Joyce Davis Charlotte Mevich Helen Furman Lucille Gillet Ethel McClain Frances McCormick Lucille McVey Bernice Ough Mildred Pothast Lila Mu ' mma Alice Neff Mrs. Grace Novak Stella Olson Dorothy Reynolds Florence Rouse Jane Fisher Genevia George Martha Monkman Vyvyean Hazen Kathleen Hoffman Bernese Hyde Berthina Klahn Juno Loder Alva Andrews Glenn Ough Jean Bader Milton Coffman Maurice Peterson Harry Vedder James Connelly John Casteel Ben Christner Harold DeWolf Robert Hardin F.

The festival consisted of three concerts. The first, Monday afternoon, was given by the Oratorio Quartette: Mrs. Allen Taylor, soprano; Mrs. Raymond Havens, con¬ tralto; Carleton Cummings, tenor, and Howard Preston, baritone. Mrs. Allen Taylor, of Kansas City, Missouri, has a clear, sweet and sympathetic voice. She sings for the pleasure of singing; because she enjoys it. Mrs. Raymond Havens of Kansas City, Missouri, is an artist of rare ability. Her voice has a pleasing quality and she sings with a great deal of dramatic power. Howard Preston, baritone, of Chicago, sang as only a true artist could. His voice is deep and full and his enunciation is clear. His interpretation of Elijah was ideal. He has the voice, the dramatic sense, and an appreciation of the significance of the part. Carleton Cummings is a graduate of the Nebraska Wesleyan School of Music, and for the past two years has been located in Chicago. He has an exceptionally brilliant and colorful voice of heroic range. He sings with much warmth and color of tone. The program of these four artists consisted of solos from each, and a duet by Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Allen. Monday evening, Florence MacBeth gave her delightful program. It is undoubtedly the best along this line that we have had. She is a true coloratura soprano. Her voice is bright and animated, its sweetness and smoothness was shown in Handel’s “What’s Sweeter Than a Rose?” Throughout her entire program she was ably assisted by George Roberts, accom¬ panist and composer. Her unaffectedly gracious manner completely captivated her appreciative audience. The grand climax came Tuesday evening, when Mendelssohn ' s magnificent oratorio, Elijah, was given by the University Chorus and interested townspeople, directed by Dean Parvin Witte, accompanied by the University orchestra, directed by Professor August Molzer. The oratorio artists sang the solo parts. This completed the Festival. Every number was much enjoyed by the audiences, and we hope that the May Music Festival has come to Nebraska Wesleyan to stay.

The quality of work put out by Dilector Witte has met with highest praise from Nebraska’s musical v11tics- 1 he moral conduct of the men on the trips was beyond re¬ proach, and the fellows carried Wesleyan spirit with them into Ne¬ braska towns. We feel that the Glee Club is one of Weslevan’s greatest adver¬ tising media.

For five weeks previous to this important and gala occasion, one saw Mrs. Witte, the director, closely followed by Bertha McClain, the pianist, each hugging a Pinafore score under her arm. They were usually in active pursuit of some beautiful chorus girl, or handsome and manly sailor. Queer sounds and more, or maybe we should say most, queer words rang out from usually sedate studios. 1 hese things excited our curiosity greatly. 1 he performance fully came up to our expectations however, for it was beautifully given. Each member of the cast sang and acted like real professionals, and we were all amused by the whim¬ sicalities of the lines and entertained by the charming music so well sung. I he chorus work was excellent throughout and, in fact, the entire per¬ formance was notable for its freshness and spontaneity. DRAMATIS PERSONAE I lie Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph Porter, K. C.

Four hundred eighty-two registered, and not less than two dozen others applied for admission tickets to the college night performance, explaining their request by stating that they did not get here in time to register. Fifty-four high schools were represented, and twenty-eight schools had entries in the scholastic meet. Twenty-three teams signed up for entries in the high school track and field meet, but not all of these were able to be present because of the muddy roads, and only fourteen teams actually entered the competi¬ tion. The scholastic meet included events in Algebra, Bookkeeping, Botany, Citizenship, English, Expression, Extempore Speaking, Geography, Geometry, History, Hygiene, Physics, Piano, Singing, and Spelling. First, second and third prizes were awarded, and in several instances honorable mention was given to contestants d ' he University maintained open house throughout the day. The various departments con¬ ducted experiments for the benefit of the visitors, and displays of equipment of the laboratories made interesting observation for the guests of Wesleyan. The Wesleyan band opened the convocation at 10 o’clock. Greetings were extended by Dean B. E. McProud of the Teachers’ College. State Superintendent John M. Matzen gave the address of the morning, emphasizing the benefits of a college education. Basketball letters were awarded by Coach Glen Preston to the cage battlers of the 1924 season. The playlet, “The Pot Boilers,’’ a clever one-act production by the Dramatic Club, preceded the singing of “The Yellow and the Brown.” At noon the high school students were the guests of the university at dinner served at the cafeteria and the church. Again in the evening the university served supper to the guests. Track fans refused to have their plans thwarted by the drizzling rain which fell during the greater part of the afternoon, and a large number of these enthusiasts, sheltered beneath umbrellas and raincoats, encouraged their favorites on the heavy track. Lincoln High took first honors, and Blanchard, Iowa, finished second. A total of ninety-four entries were made in the meet. One of the most clever stunts ever presented in a college night contest was staged by the seniors in the prize winning stunt in the evening of high school day. The seniors depicted in a graphic manner the needs of the world as they manifest themselves to the college student. I’lie Spirit of Wesleyan challenged the Wesleyan Graduate for an answer to these needs, and the Graduate responded with a promised attempt to solve these perplexities. The stunt was typical of Wesleyan, was clever in its suggestion and its humor, and was well presented. Second place was awarded to the sophomores, third place to the juniors, and fourth place to the freshmen. The main floor and the gallery were filled for the performance. The awarding of prizes in the scholastic and athletic contests ended the day. Paije Ninety-six Forensics forensics Wesleyan Forensics this year were of such calibre as to add considerable prestige to our already widely known and respected forensic reputation. Earl Raitt, our orator in the State Oratorical Contest, held at Hastings, came home with third honors. He also ranked high among the orators at the Pi Kappa Delta National Convention held at Peoria, Illinois. In addition, he took first honors in the Annual Hero Day Oratorical Contest. Second honors went to Herbert Gray. The winning oration was " The Challenge of Peace”. The title of the oration which was awarded second place was “War Insurance”. In debate, Wesleyan met some of the strongest teams in the middle west, including teams from schools of well-known standing in forensics. Park Col¬ lege, Morningside, Denver University, Des Moines University, Washburn, Cor¬ nell College, Iowa State Teacher s College, and others were among the schools debated this year. Perhaps the outstanding feat of the debate season was the defeat of the Intermountain Union College team of Helena, Montana. This team had just completed an extensive debate trip covering eleven states and nineteen debates. Our Affirmative team, composed of John Casteel, Merrill Norlin, and Roscoe Chenoweth, administered the first defeat this Montana team had suffered on the Negative side of the World Court question. A number of the debate coaches who heard our teams at the Pi Kappa Delta Convention said it was some of the finest debating they had heard in years. Two questions were debated this year. One was, Resolved: " That the U. S. Should Join the World Court”. The other was, Resolved: “That the U. S. Should Join the League of Nations”. The Affirmative teams were composed of Elizabeth Connelly, John Casteel, Merrill Norlin, and Roscoe C henoweth. The Negative teams were composed of Herbert Gray, Earl Adams, and Merrill Norlin. To Professor J. Manley Phelps, Coach of Forensics, is due much of the credit for the splendid showing of our debate teams. He has developed a smooth and pleasing, as well as logical presentation in his teams which is re marked by all those familiar with the work of the debaters. With a good nucleus for next year, losing none of her debaters through graduation, Wesleyan should make a better record than has been made this year.

Watt Page One Hundred Twenty-five Organizations Olje 3u6tanapoli$ (Lortventiort Nebraska Wesleyan was very well represented at the Ninth Quadrennial Convention of The Student Volunteers, which was held at Indianapolis during Christmas vacation. Besides the Chancellor, the following fourteen students were present: Ray Allen, Esther Andren, Margaret Bogle, James Connelly, Paul Copeland, Elsie Egly, Ethel Evans, John Johansen, Mildred Ormsby, Earl Raitt, Pearl Sherlock, Robert Shepard, Beryl Snyder, and Clinton Swengel. This convention was the greatest and most representative meeting of college students that has ever been held. Students were there from eight hundred and forty-one institutions. There were students of many different nationalities, and from foreign universities to the number of three hundred and eighty. The total number of students was five thousand, four hundred and seventy-one, and the total registration was six thousand, one hundred and ninety-five. The gathering was great not only in the numerical sense, but the things that were accomplished there have already had a far-reaching effect. The careful, sane discussions of the vital problems facing the world today left with every delegate a sense of responsibility. Rodin’s “Thinker” may be said to be symbolic of the con¬ vention. The students WERE thinkers, and when such a number of people think seriously on the same subject there is bound to be a result. New attitudes were formed by many, and these were taken back to the campuses all over the world for the benefit of the rest of the students. The main discussions centered about the Race question, War, Industrial strife, and Inter¬ national Relations. These were discussed in the main with reference to their Christian solu¬ tions. Many interesting and helpful discussions have been held on our campus since the return of the delegates, and evidences of the influence of the convention are evident on every side. Our group had a very interesting trip both ways, and many new friendships were formed. There were so many ridiculous and funny things which took place that it would not be fair to start telling them, for want of space. It would be less fair, however, not to suggest that some one ask Beryl and Ethel why they were requested to change tables at lunch time in a famous Chicago lunch room. Having mentioned that, ask Paul Copeland how to mail letters at a county court house, when the post office is just across the street. Any one of a certain five can tell how it feels to miss the special train, and have to take a later one. Clinton says that he will always check his overcoat. But the gem of the whole collection came to our attention when Ethel discovered (or thought she did) that Foch came from Indiana. Seriously, the meeting was so wonderful in every way that it will always live in the minds of those who attended. Its influence will be felt by all who have taken a little time for serious thought with those who were there. It will still be fresh in the memories of most of us when the next meeting is held, in four years, and will be a drawing card for that convention.

The commission is composed of fifteen Freshmen girls who are Y. W. members. Five of these are elected by the entire group of Freshmen girls, and ten are elected by the Y. W. C. A. cabinet and advisory board. These girls meet every two weeks and study conditions of our campus, and then en¬ deavor to correct any undesirable conditions by casting their influence on the right side. It is the object of every Freshmen Commission girl to be a friend of every Freshmen girl on our campus.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. “ ‘There are those who have little and give it all. There are believers in life, and their coffer is never empty. There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward. And there are those who g ive with pain, and that pain is their baptism. And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue; They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space. Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth’. sjs “You often say, ‘I would give but only to the deserving ' , Surely he who is worthy to receive his nights and days, is worthy of all else from you. See first that you yourself deserve to be a giver and an instrument of Giving, For in truth it is life that gives unto life—while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness.” —From “The Prophet,” by Kabul Gibran Page One Hundred Twenty-nine Organizations V- 5tt. d.TK.

Griffith Snyder Copeland Miles Harrington Wells Tanner Burdick Bing Austin Sala Page One Hundred Thirty • rgauizatioiis The Young Men’s Christian Association this year has endeavored to carry on its program in a way which would benefit every man on the campus. To better serve the men, the Friend¬ ship Council plan became a big factor in connecting the membership with the cabinet, and the work which it carried on during the year. Seventeen men composed this council through being department heads on the cabinet, and in this way kept the men posted as to the general work of the “Y”. Approximately two hundred and forty men were members of the association this year. Each year new men come here and find that the Y. M. C. A. gives them a place to associate with other fellows and broaden their friendships. There was a large interest shown by the men on the campus in the program of the “Y,” and each man felt that he had a part to play in the making of the work effective upon the campus. Though the detail work of the association must be handled by a small group, known as the cabinet, yet the attitude and actions of the members in the organization decide whether it is a success or not. When the men are interested and take part in the activities, we believe the “Y” has a big place on our campus. Our general meetings this y r ear were led bv faculty members, taking the book, “The Social Significance of the Teachings of Jesus Christ,” by Jeremiah Jenks, and bringing to us in an interesting way ' the life of Christ, and His teachings. These meetings were held twice a month. The cabinet meetings were held each Monday night, and the executive meetings were held each Thursday evening. Then each Friday morning at seven-thirty the members of the cabinet and others who were interested came for a thirty-minute morning-watch. Throughout this year it has been the policy that Christian service should be uppermost in the lives of the men on the campus. The Young Men’s Christian Association has been the greatest factor in helping the men to give this service to their b iggest and fullest measure. The year 1923-24 has been marked with some signs of achievement, and whatever that has been it is only hoped that it may be a stepping-stone for a greater and better work in the years ahead. It is with a deep feeling of regret that more could not be accomplished, yet, with hopes high and greater anticipations we look forward to the coming of a better and bigger association on our campus.

W. IJ. For weeks the phrase “Beat Des Moines University” had been on the lips of all. By Thursday night the whole town was bright with lighted banners. Kach fraternity and sorority house was decorated in honor of the “Grads” returning on this, our fourteenth annual Home-Coining Day. At eight o’clock a huge bonfire was lighted on the campus, the students gather¬ ing here and proceeding with a snake dance through the streets, singing college songs. Friday dawned bright and sunshiny. Ten o’clock found the student body at chapel, where Chancellor Schreckengast delivered his Ilome-C ' oming address. Seated on the platform were the Board of Trustees and visiting Alumni. At three o’clock the student body, faculty, alumni, and well-wishers of Nebraska Wesleyan gathered on Johnson field to witness the biggest football game of the season, which resulted in a 2-5 score in favor of the ' Coyotes. DR. RALL SPEAKS TO STUDENTS AND TOWNSPEOPLE Beginning Sunday morning, October 28, Dr. Rail of Garrett Biblical Institute spoke twice each day during the week, completing his series on the evening of November 4. His fine spirit and broad scholarship make him a most gripping speaker. It was evident at all times that he was speaking to those who care to think. According to his theory, while there may he conflict between scientists and religionists, there is no conflict between science and religion, for both are of God’s world. The “Rule of God” in the world will he established when the will of Christ dominates men as they live and work together. It is impossible to summarize a series of great addresses on such great themes. A glance of some of the subjects may help the reader to imagine the treat which came to our students and faculty: “The Meaning of God”; “Fundamentalism”; “Evolution and Religion”; “The Authority of the Bible”; “The Meaning of Christ”; “A Social Faith”; “The Life Beyond”; “Christ and the New Order”. In no instance was the speaker unfair in his attempt to show the untenable position of those who dis¬ agree with his views. On such subjects as “Fundamentalism” and “Evolution” he openly and frankly challenged the position of the conservatives, and at the same time laid a solid foundation for a Christian faith compatible with what some call a modern viewpoint. BISHOP HENDERSON VISITS WESLEYAN Bishop Henderson spent the week of March 9 to 16, inclusive, conducting special meetings during the Wesleyan chapel period, and holding services each evening in the F ' irst Methodist Episcopal church. Everyone was impressed by the way in which Bishop Henderson gave of himself. In addition to the two helpful services each day, he spent many hours in assisting students in solving their problems. Bishop Henderson’s sermons were well illustrated by examples that appealed especially to students. Long will they remember his life-service motto, “Whatever, whenever, wherever.” Everywhere on the campus there has been a more thoughtful and considerate attitude since this week of meditation and communion. THE PAN WESLEYAN The Pan Wesleyan Banquet was held March 20, 1924, in the main dining-room of the Lincoln Hotel. About four hundred students, faculty members, and trustees were present at this affair. Dr. Clemens, the toast-master, and his able toast ers made the evening very interesting. We were glad to hear that E. J. Simonds was in the audience. lie is a graduate of N. W. U. and is now living in Cuba. He addressed the group and expressed his great delight at being hack “home” for such an auspicious occasion. This is one social affair for the whole school that should he well attended. May the Pan Wesleyans to come he even greater than those that are past.

Page One Hundred Thirty-seven Events " THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD” By William Holman This has been called the most beautiful picture of a sacred subject ever painted. Christ is represented as knocking at the door of a human soul. An art window, reproducing this beau¬ tiful picture in colors, has recently been presented to the Nebraska Wesleyan University by the alumnae of the Alpha Kappa Delta Sorority. The window is at the head of the first landing as you enter the front door of the Main Building. Artistically and symbolically, the window is certain to exert most wholesome influence. The donors deserve the thanks of all friends of the Universitv. FORD CAR STOLEN Just before Christmas, Chancellor Schreckengast had his old Ford car stolen. It was taken out in broad daylight from his garage by a number of Wesleyan students, led on by the president of the Senior Class, Mr. Loder. The car was traded to a University Place garage for a new Dodge sedan, made possible by the generous contributions of people on the Wesleyan Campus, the sum of nearly $1,000, which Mr. Loder boldly took along in the stolen car. One of the happiest post-Christmas chapel events was the presentation of this car to Dr. and Mrs. Schreckengast. Page One Hundred Tliirty-elglit 3E!NR 4MSm Gladys W. Coatman Earl L.

The big affair of the year is the annual Alumni Banquet which is held during the Com¬ mencement season. Here graduates renew their old-time college •spirit and become acquainted with the newest alumni who are going out with the same feeling of loyalty for Alma Mater. Every five years classes have special reunions. The class which has been out of school twenty- five years is the Honor Class. The alumni speaker who gives the main address at the banquet is chosen from this group if possible. The official publication of the association is The Alumnus. It is edited by the Executive Committee, and published three times a year as a regular university bulletin. The editors endeavor to carry out the aims of the organization by acquainting each alumnus with the activities of the school and the work of the other alumni. This year, the success of the mag¬ azine has been due to the co-operation of the alumni who have sent in news generously, and the local members of the organization who have assisted in the editing.

The Red Willow County chapter is a new chapter, organized this year, and it certainly is a “peppy” group. You will notice their page in this section. The Boston chapter was very prompt in asking for a page. And no wonder—see the snaps they could send. Of course they knew we would be interested in pictures of scenes we cannot see every day. The Ceresco chapter sent a very interesting reply, but felt that they were not entitled to our section, due to their form of organization. Anyone who has ever attended, or is attending, Wesleyan, also their husbands and wives, are eligible. Their purpose is to in¬ terest the young people of Ceresco in some Christian school and of course they boost for Wesleyan. Another chapter was heard from and this was the Clay County chapter, organized within the last year or so. They wanted a page, but due to bad roads were not able to get together to take the pictures.

We believe that it will be not only interesting to an alumnus who may see the hook, but it will also help the students to become acquainted with the different associations. As you now have read, several chapters answered our letter and expressed their interest in our project. We hope that there are other chapters interested as well. Our great hope is that this section may grow, and in years to come may represent each chapter of our alumni association. Patjc One Hundred Forty-tlirec Trustee Dr. Van Fleet, a prominent patron and trustee of the Nebraska Wesleyan University, made possible, by his efforts and donations, the erection of the Van Fleet Teachers College. During this construction, he held the responsible position of Financial Secretary of the Uni¬ versity. Besides officiating in this position, he was and is a true friend of the student body and faculty. Dr. and Mrs. Van Fleet have recently completed an interesting tour in the Southland. Their first stop was Springfield, Missouri. From there they went to Memphis, Tennessee. At this place they visited the Scottish Rite Temple and other Masonic buildings. On a large bluff is a monument in memory of the heroes of the great World War. Vicksburg was the next place of interest, its name being derived from the family of Vicks. The founder, Newit Vicks, was a planter and Methodist clergyman. This city has the largest and one of the most beautiful National Cemeteries, also a National Military Park. At Baton Rouge they visited the State University, which opened in 1860 with General W. T. Sherman as its president, who resigned after one year to join the Federal Army. Five different flags have floated over this city, the French, Spanish, British, Confederate and Old Glory. Little Rock is a city of roses. Many flowers bloom during the winter. In the capitol building can be seen paintings and monuments of all the great Confederate heroes. They noticed especially the painting of a boy who died as a martyr for the South. Fie held back valuable information rather than betray his friends, and for this reason he was executed. Upon returning from the Southland, Dr. Van Fleet was requested to fill the position as pastor of the St. James M. E. Church of Lincoln, where he is now rendering effective Chris¬ tian service.

Sigma Alpha Iota, national professional musical sorority, was founded June 12, 1903, in the University School of Music at Ann Arbor, Michigan. The first National Honorary member was Mme. Louise Homer. The object of this Sorority is to give moral and material aid to its members, to promote and dignify the musical profession, to establish and maintain friendly relations between musicians and music schools, and to further the development of music in America. This is the first National Sorority to be installed in Nebraska Wesleyan University. Marjorie Maxwell and Kathryn Foster were initiated Chapter Honorary members.

Although this is also his first year as a coach, he has succeeded in turning out teams that have at¬ tracted much attention and maintained the high stand¬ ards set by Wesleyan teams in the past. Coach Preston has brought to the Wesleyan campus a great deal more than his knowledge of athletics. It might be said that he senses athletics in their true sphere: that of developing better men. Through his leadership and his own high ideals he has been a potent factor, not only in building successful teams, but in turning out men. who are imbued with the true Wesleyan spirit and ideals. Page One Hundred Seventy-five Athletics Ol)£ (Touching Staff I lie coaching staff this year has reached a degree of excellence that few schools of this size are able to enjoy. With three coaches, an increased number of men have been given the opportunity to get out for the football team, and a greater degree of specialization has been made possible. CARL PETERSON GLEN PRESTON PROF. H. A. DURHAM r b Peterson, a former team mate of Preston’s, was appointed assistant coach of football. He devoted his attention to the line men. Pete is himself a line man of exceptional ability, and was able to teach the boys a few of the latest tricks of the game. Under his direction, the Wesleyan line developed into a well nigh impenetrable forward wall. Wesleyan is indeed fortunate in having a man so well fitted as Preston to act as head coach. Himself a product of one of the greatest football coaches in the United States, as well as a quarterback on one of the greatest football teams that has ever represented Nebraska, he has brought to Wesleyan the latest methods of coaching and playing. Under his tutelage the Coyotes have been worthy opponents for the best teams in this section of the country. Preston is himself a hard worker, and has that peculiar ability of coaching which is the composite of many other abilities. As a coach he has been able to command the respect and the loyalty which is so necessary for winning teams. Howard Durham, as coach of the scrubs, has been able to build teams that have given the Varsity a hard struggle. In this capacity he has been a factor in making the Varsity teams what they were. The scrubs are fortunate in having such a leader as Durham has been, and many a player has been elevated to the Varsity squad because of the training he received from Coach Durham. He will act as freshmen coach next year. Page One Hundred Seventy-six Athletics CAPTAIN O. L.

The Coyotes were not awarded the championship, how¬ ever, because they were one game short of the number necessary to qualify them. Wesleyan opened the season October 6, on Johnson Field, trouncing Wayne Normal 25 to o. Hurlbut accounted for two of Wesleyans scores, one on an inter¬ cepted pass and the other on a blocked punt. Midland, with a team of veterans met the Coyotes the following week. Sev¬ eral times last year’s champions were within striking distance of the Wesleyan goal, but each time they were thrown back. The final score was o to o. Wesleyan opened their North Central competition October 20, at Vermillion. Touted as a probable winner, South Dakota University could do no more than battle the Coyotes to a scoreless tie. In the next game, with Trinity, Wesleyan won easily by a 42 to o score. Wes¬ leyan began to find herself in this game, working better in all departments of the game and rounding into shape. The following week, on Home-Coming day, Wesleyan fully vindicated her right to a berth in the North Central Conference. The Des Moines Tigers, conquer¬ ors of Creighton and Morningside were played to a standstill and humbled by a 5 to 2 score. The Coyotes met Cotner next in a mid-week game. Most of the game was played by second string men although Gembler did the bulk of the scoring in the last period when he broke away for three touchdowns. The final score was 27 to o. Wesleyan defeated Grand Island, November 17, by a count of 27 to 3. Clark substituting for Sowers made three of Wesleyans touchdowns. The Islanders made their only score in the first five minutes of play on a drop-kick by Odums. Wesleyan registered an easy victory the following week defeating Doane 43 to o. This was the largest margin by which the Coyotes have ever defeated the Tigers. The last game of the season, with Hastings on Thanksgiving Day , shattered Wesleyan’s hope for another State chain pionship. The Coyotes scored a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Bronchos came from behind and won, 9 to 7 .

Small and fast, he has con¬ tributed largely toward Wesleyan’s victories and helped make the victories of the other teams hard earned. Ally will make an able leader for next year’s team JESSE BOELL Guard, second year Boell is the only man on this year’s team who will not be back next year. His grad¬ uation will leave a large gap in the Wes¬ leyan defense. Jesse has made almost every opposing forward resort to long shots as the only means of scoring Boell etter HENRY YETTER Forward, second year Hank was especially good at sinking long shots from apparently impossible angles. With two more years to play, Yetter will have a chance to develop w onderfully, and should rank with the best forwards that Wesleyan has turned out JOHN CALVERT Forward, second year Calvert’s ability to wrest the ball from an opponent and get down the floor has ac¬ counted for many of Wesleyan’s baskets. He will be back again next year and should work even better Page One Hundred P-i jhly-six Allilrl ics 31m m y !

He displayed remarkable possibil¬ ities and with three more years to play he should develope into a stellar guard. Boell Ml . • GLEN YETTER Although Glen was taken from us before the first game was played, he was of varsity calibre and according to Coach Preston, he would undoubtedly have been one of the regulars. In basketball, as well as in all other things, Glen was characterized by his true sportsmanship. Parjr One- Hundred F.u Jity-seren Athletics BASKETBALL RESERVES Brayman Steeves Paul Kemble Roper Harrington Dinnis Weld With the spotlight almost entirely upon the varsity squad, the reserves rarely, if ever, get any credit. Sitting on the sidelines, the student body for the most part sees only the results, and not the hard work that has been done to accomplish these results. The reserves play an absolutely indispensable part in building Varsity teams. This year’s reserve squad was not an excep¬ tion to the rule. They were out every night, working hard, taking all the hard knocks of the Varsity—all because of their loyalty to Wesleyan, and in order that the Varsity might get the practice that it needed. CHEER LEADERS Every athletic team must have the support of the school, which it represents, or it cannot win. This is true at Nebraska Wesleyan as well as at other schools. Therefore, we must give due recognition to the cheer leaders and the invaluable part they have played in athletics. They have been out to every game and have been unceasing in their efforts to support the teams, which have represented Nebraska Wesleyan. The three cheer leaders this year are Beryl Snyder, Claire Johnson and Lloyd Shepard. Beryl Snyder was awarded an official “W” in recognition of his services. Puyc One Hundred Ilighty-eij lit Athletics SEASON’S REVIEW Wesleyan has had a basketball team this year of which we may well be proud. Altho the Coyotes did not win a majority of the games played, the circles in which they moved fully justified these defeats. With five letter men out at the first of the year, prospects were un¬ usually bright, but the team did not seem to hit its stride until late in the season. Six of this year’s letter men will be back in uniform next year, Jesse Boell being the only senior on the team. Wesleyan faces another hard schedule, but with six veterans Preston should produce a team that will be strong contenders for the title in both conferences. Wesleyan opened the season on her home floor, downing the Wayne Pedagogues by a 32 to 20 count. In the next game, with Midland, the Coyotes again won, by a score of 23 to 14. Wesleyan inaugurated her first trip with a defeat when she met Simpson college at Indianola, Iowa. The game was fast and the outcome uncertain until the last whistle sounded, but the Iowans nosed out Wesleyan by a score of 18 to 17. The Coyotes were decisively defeated by the Des Moines tigers in the next game by a score of 51 to 10. The coyotes lost the next encounter, with South Dakota State, by a four point margin, 19 to 15. A journey into the neighboring state of North Dakota resulted in a 22 to 28 victory for North Dakota Uni. Wesleyan turned in her fourth straight defe at the following night when she lost to the North Dakota Aggies by a 20 to 13 score. In the following game, with Hastings, the Coyotes broke their losing streak, winning, 20 to 19. Wesleyan won from Midland in the next game, this time by a score of 22 to 20. The Coyotes turned back South Dakota Uni in the next game, 43 to 36. In the next melee Morningside fought hard to gain a 30 to 28 win over Wesleyan. In the next game Trinity was defeated by a 23 to 19 score. South Dakota State compiled their second win of the season over the Coyotes when they won 27 to 23 on Wesleyan’s floor. After a lapse of two years, relations with Peru Norma! were resumed by a game in the Wesleyan gym, which virtually settled the 1924 state conference basketball race. Peru won the championship when she managed to extract a victory by the sketchy margin of one point, the final score being 17 to 16. Wesleyan turned on Morningside in the next game and won 32 to 13. Cotner then proceeded to give the dope bucket a vicious boot by winning 21 to 15, at Cotner. Peru rubbed it in the next game when they beat Wesleyan, 38 to 16. The Coyotes rounded out the season with victories over Cotner and Hastings.

The first year class played together well, due perhaps to the fact that four of the regulars had played together in high school. The men who did the bulk of the work for the freshmen were CL Vetter, Roper, Weld, H. Boell, Bray- men and Dinnis. The freshmen turned in victories over each of the other classes; the sophomores registered wins over the seniors and juniors; the juniors defeated the seniors for their only victory, while the seniors failed to win a single game. The rule which made Varsity men ineligible for this tournament perhaps handicapped the three upper classes. Page One Hundred Ninety Athletics Earl Raitt Earl Raitt, veteran weight man, is captain of this year ' s track team. Raitt is capable of turning in a goodly number of points from the field events in every meet and is a worthy leader of the 1924 track team. Pape 0 ic Hundred Ninety-one TRACK TEAM Wesleyan has centered on track as the major spring sport. The team got a late start this year, but with a large squad working out daily under the tutelage of Coach Preston, prospects are bright for another successful season on the cinder paths. Cassius Tanner Wesleyan has supported a winning cross-country team this season. Led by Cassius Tanner, as captain, the Coyote harriers won from Hastings on Thanksgiving Day and took the Y. M. C. A. annual interscholastic cross-country meet. Page One Hundred Ninety-two Athletics OennU Charles McCandless Tennis is now rated as a major sport at Nebraska Wesleyan. Although Wesleyan has had an organized tennis team in the field but the last few years, she has already stepped to the forefront in state tennis circles. Charles McCandless is captain of this year’s team. The men who will represent Wesleyan this year will be determined by the tournament to be held soon. It is planned to enter a team in the State Tournament again this year. Last year the Wesleyan doubles team, composed of McCandless and Harrel, won the state doubles championship, while in the singles the W esleyan men stood high in the ranking. It is probable that a number of other matches will also be scheduled. Two of last year’s team, Hurlbut and McCandless, are out again this year and with three tennis courts in good shape and in constant use, the pros¬ pects are bright for another winning team.

Our physical training program stresses the health of the students. The girls are required to take gymnastic work the first two years of their college course. On entering the University, each girl is given a physical examination. If found to have organs not functioning correctly, or physical defects and deformities, she is placed in a clinic class; if not she enters a class of gymnastics, athletic sports and games. It is our desire to have every girl participate in some form of recreation each year she is in school. A sound body is an absolute necessity for the most efficient work. We have organized a woman’s athletic association to create a greater interest among the girls for athletics and those things that will make one a healthier and stronger individual. Points are given for the different sports: basketball, volleyball, baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, hiking, and bicycle-riding. By participating in these sports and winning a certain number of points, it is possible for a student to earn a “W”. Page One Hundred Ninety-seven Atlilclics Sta6ium The old Wesleyan grandstand is no longer on the campus. It has met with the Biblical fate of being destroyed by fire and water. Consequently we are left without a grandstand to shelter us from the elements. It was planned that there should be a new stadium erected last summer, but these plans were not carried out. Wesleyan students are demanding a stadium and Wesleyan athletes feel the need of it. But it is only by marshaling every student be¬ hind the project that we can accomplish the realization of our dreams, and with every student doing his best Wesleyan can have a new stadium in the near future. The erection of a new stadium would be entirely in harmony with the trend of Wesleyan athletics at the present time. Wesleyan is now in the process of transition into bigger athletics. She has dropped out of the State conference entirely in football, playing onlv three games with conference col¬ leges, centering her attention on larger fields. The same is true concerning basketball, a majority of the games being with teams in the North Central conference. Although this is the period of transition, Wesleyan has shown her ability to compete successfully with these faster teams. Wesleyan was not defeated in football this year in the North Central conference, although the Coyotes did not play a sufficient number of conference games to make them eligible for the championship. The freshman rule, which bars all first year men from competition in the North Central conference, will be put into effect next year. The freshman teams will be organized exactly as the Varsity is, with a coach, and with a regular schedule, which wull include games with state conference teams. The outlook is exceptionally bright for next season. In basketball, Cap- tain-elect Alabaster will take the field with a nucleus of four Varsity men. In football, of the thirteen letter men, eleven will be back.

Yessir, I’ve got the blues— Because I won’t be here no more. Now when I was a freshman I just yearned to be a Soph; And when I reached that stage my hat to Juniors I would doff; And then I looked ’way forward to a glorious Senior year, But now that it’s all over boys, you know, I feel no cheer— I’d like to do it all again, each grade point, every fear! I’ve got the blues for College Sports, And College Women too; I think of just a hundred things That 1 would like to do. I used to think the “outside reading” stuff was mighty bad, But now my “outside” reading is a “Male Help Wanted” ad! Is it any wonder now 1 ask you, that I should feel sad ?

A Home Concern A MAN’S DISCOVERIES Once upon a time I thought I understood women and could make any of them fall with one hand and my eyes shut. But, also, I have made these discoveries: If you flatter a woman, she thinks you are handing her a line. If you don’t flatter her she is bored to death. If you make love to her, she gets tired in the end. And if you don’t, she gets offended in the beginning. If you agree with her in everything, you will soon cease to interest her. If you argue with her in everything, she will soon cease to like you. If you break out in a “Tux” and “stiff front,” she tells you its an informal affair. If you wear a plain dark suit, she spends all her time gaz ing at a man in a “Tux” and a “stiff front.” If you’re jealous, she cannot endure you. If you’re not, she cannot understand you. If you are persistent, she soon wearies of your attention. And if you are cool and indifferent, she seeks consolation in some other fellow. If you are old-fashioned, she doubts that you have a brain. And if you are modern, collegiate and independent, she doubts that you have a heart or a scruple. If you are frivolous, and inclined to be light, she longs for a mental mate. If you are brilliant and intellectual, she longs for a playmate. If you are “small-town” and domestic, she longs for a soul-mate. If you are quiet and poetic, she longs for a helpmate. Now I ask you, “What Do?” Don’t ask me how I found out about women. I Haven’t!

DEAN WITTE REFUSES TO BE A PRINCE CHARMING Plan Accommodation For Eighty-five Thousand As the Yaller Hound is be¬ ing chased off the press the tuition payers of Nebwesuni are wilder than Darwin’s prehistoric professors because of the checker tournament scheduled to come off two days after the receipt of this great educational sheet. The checker tournament is attracting attention from the entire civilized world and some people from Bethany will also be present. The trustees are building an amphitheatre with a seating capacity of eighty-five thou¬ sand. Susie and her band will be present for the occa¬ sion The tournament will be played on Wednesday after¬ noon and all classes will be dismissed for the entire week to allow ample time for fistic encounters between the back¬ ers of the four men who will participate in the finals. Girls will be permitted to fight the same as the men—or in a worse fashion. The carni- vourous and destructive ten¬ dencies of the men in the finals has been partially sub¬ limated by the action of the college council and a senate investigating committee who decreed that they (the play¬ ers) should be muzzled. The big bonfire to be touched off as soon as the conflict is over has been pre¬ pared by the students.

Gone are the days when woman’s place was in the home; gone are the days when woman was spoken of as the weaker sex. Only a casual observation need be made to show that the female of the species is rapidly tak¬ ing to herself the last ves¬ tige of manhood. Daily, scores of women romp un¬ abashed about our fair cam¬ pus clad in garments which have always been a mark of manhood. But it is not without some admiration that the men look upon the possibilities which our fair competitors are showing. Nature has been exceedingly kind to some of them.

It is in¬ timated that only Dean Witte’s discriminating fore¬ sight saved the more intelli¬ gent portion of the Universi¬ ty from everlasting disgrace. The Yellow Dog herewith throws the merciless facts to a hungry world. It seems that the student body has been deprived of the most interesting details of the proceedings of the an¬ nual Senior-Junior reception held last fall in Hotel Hun¬ tington. Whether by the order of Profs. Coatman, Marshall and Calvert, or by the com¬ bined efforts of the three (the facts are yet undeveloped). Hotel Huntington was fra¬ grant with the Aroma of that symbol of brotherly ? love. It was suspended over num¬ erous of the luxurious Settees and Davenports which make the name Hotel Huntington synomyous with ease, indul¬ gence and daytime slumber. Into this inviting influence the innocent youths of the school together with more or less innocent faculty mem¬ bers were projected. The us¬ ual program was being awaited in the usual way. Then the unusual happened. One of the fairest of the fair faculty members beheld an altogether irresistable sight— Dean Alabaster, sitting be¬ neath a sprig of the above mentioned symbol. It was the chance of a life-time.

As soon as the title to the belt is decided, Paul Sala, notorious sheik of the campus, will abandon his harem, which will be seated on the first five rows in the center section of the amphi¬ theatre and rush from the building. The finals of the tourna¬ ment will be played by Ray Allen, George Wilson, Harold Boell and Earl Raitt. Gamb¬ ling is as prevalent as over¬ work among the students and is being winked at by the gamblers themselves. Backers of Ray Allen were confident yesterday that their Eskimo Pies were safe, and based their faith on past ac¬ complishments of Mr. Allen. Allen is a great jumper and claims to have jumped every¬ thing but his laundry and board bill and they are get¬ ting too high for such an at¬ tempt. Boell is not much of a fa¬ vorite. When he entered the tournament he usderstood he was to play rows. Boell is a shark at rows. In this latter game he has been beaten only once and that was when someone placed a tack on his opponent’s chair and he rose first. George Wilson, one of the b ; g favorites in matters per¬ taining to the destination of THE YELLOW DOG Eskimo Pies, holds his posi¬ tion by means of his expres¬ siveness both to checker men and to his opponents. Earl Raitt, however, is the big favorite among the gamb¬ lers of Nebwesuni. Raitt, be¬ cause of his reputation as thi marrying parson, is expected to accomplish great things in two-for-one moves. A special police force under the direction of the debate team and the Chemistry Club will keep the crowd in sub¬ jection. In case the debaters fail, the Chemists will do their darndest with H S- —and the checker tournament and the audience will both be over.

Cecil Farnum: “You are the breath of my life.” Gem White: “Well, suppose you hold your breath awhile.” Julia Bordfelt: “I want some hairnets.” Clerk: “What strength.” Julia B. “Two dances and a car ride.” Rocks in the mountains, Fish in the sea, A garbage man’s daughter, Made a dump out of me. Bon bons and roses, the young girl supposes, Surrounds every wife. But Oh, how she’ll shiver, When onions and liver Come into her life. LOVE’S BLINDNESS He kissed me and we parted So filled with ecstasy, That he fell over a hydrant And I ran against a tree. Jerry H.: “Why is Hully so lazy?” Phil C.: “Because he is so tall that he is longer in bed than most people.” THE SUN Now Showing CLINTON SWINGEL as the Little Minister Who Swears In Two Languages IN MEMORIAM Lost to Bachelorhood AL GEMBLER DON HARRINGTON SONG HITS OF THE SEASON “I Love to Chew, Chew, Chew,”—Harold Boeld. “A Heart to Let,”—Mary Louise Voile. “Whistle If You Want Me Dearies”-—Sorority House. “Every Day is Ladies Day With Me”—Melvin Alberts. “If I only had the Nerve” —Laverne Yost. “Holy, Holy, Holy”—Bas¬ ket Ball Suits. “I can’t be True so far away”—Bernadine Waldron. “I’m Glad I’m Married”— R.

TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY Cecil Farnum appeared in his first pair of long trousers which is in keeping with the way he wears his hair. R. W. Chenoworth flunked his freshman exam to-daw That is why he fell off his velocipede and was almost run over by a team of oxen. The small son of Mr. and Mrs. Wiltsie put on his first pair of knickerbockers today. The reason is a shortage of rompers. Page Two Hundred Sixty-two Student Life ADVICE TO LOVELORN Dear Shocky:—I am a re¬ spectable young man with a Ford Coupe. Why do I have to go to Havelock to get a date?—Max Roper. Dear Max:—Anyone with a Ford car could not be re¬ spectable. Go to Havelock. —Shocky.

Please advise me which frat pin I should accept—or should I wait.— Aulda Kerly. Dear Aulda:—It is not nec¬ essary to be engaged when you leave college. Life is still ahead of you, dear, so don’t try to reach and un¬ derstanding with every young man you date.— Shocky. SCANDAL AT ANNUAL RECEPTION _ (Continued fro m Page 1) ence be a tickling one. The ticklish element had been re¬ moved before the beginning of school. Acting upon the impulse the aforesaid mem¬ ber of the English depart¬ ment rushed over to the Dean and daintly placed upon the unprotected visage of the Dean, a kiss. Yes, really the reporter got it straight. This affected the music de¬ partment. The player of hymns played her sweetest him. That opened the lid for what followed. Decorum and supposed dig¬ nity were lost to the four breezes, and the entire fac¬ ulty became obsussed with the mistletoe spirit. Acting upon the motto, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Dean Swan maliciously put a sprig of the said perennial above the most comfortable chair in the room. Here she seated herself and there turn¬ ed out the piano lamp near¬ by, and then waited expect¬ antly. The men of the fac¬ ulty began to make excuses; THE YELLOW DOG Dean Alabaster had had enuff (thanks to the faculty fem- inish). Prof. Jensen didn’t dare; Prof. Gregg had been smothered by an onrush and was just recuperating; Dean McProud hadn’t been for¬ given for his sandwich story. One hope remained. The Head of the Feminist! movement at Nebraska al¬ lowed her gaze to stray until it encountered the eyes of the hitherto unsuspecting Dean Witte. Then her eye¬ brows fluttered upward to the pendant above her head. She closed her eyes dreamily, waiting for the Prince Charming act. Then came the monkey wrench. Dean Witte went on a strike. He refused to be Prince Charming. His one and only reason was; “I can kiss all the fat women I want to at home.” Dean Swan handed in her resignation and the Univers¬ ity was forced to accept it. Mrs. Witte was appointed Dean of Women. ART OF HYPNOTISM 1. Dr.: “Gifford, do you or do you not?” Gifford: “Yes, I care for two others beside Julia. I can’t recall their names.” 2. Dr.: “Ralph did you or did you not?” Ralph D.: “Yes, and No! I have and have not, but I really don’t think I need to remember the chemistry.” 3. Dr.: “Earl, did you or did you not?” Earl R.: “Yes I have. And always say I’m sorry, and re¬ solve to quit swearing.” 4. Dr.: “Pick, did you or did you not?” Pick D.: “Yes, sir, for two full hours we looked at that moon. Some moon too, Dr.” 5. Dr.: “Ted, did you or did you not?” Ted L.: “Doc, I did. I’ll never regret it, for hanging a pin is a big event only to happen once in my life” (We hope Ted does not go back on his word). 6. Dr.: “Beryl, did you or did you not?” 3 Beryl S.: “Yes Doc I kissed her three times, right by the kitchen door.” 7. Dr.: “Venton, did you or did you not?” Venton L.: “No, Doc, I just go with her to spend my money foolishly.” 8. Dr.: “Clinton, did you or did you not?” Clinton S.: “Yes, Doc, I took two drinks one time. Boy, I never felt better in my life.” 9. Dr.: “Paul, did you or did you not?” Paul S.: “Yes, Doc, I kissed Lucille in the eye. And got so fussed I fell down the front stairs backward.” (This must have a hidden meaning that we have missed). 10. Dr.: “Don Hare, did you or did you not?” Dr. Don H.: “Yes, Doc, I did. But she wouldn’t con¬ sider it until later in the spring.” (Doc offered his handkerchief here). 11. Dr.: “Aubrey, did you or did you not?” Aubrey C.: “Yes, Doc, I’m the originator of “Banana Oil.” Dr. “Allen, did you or did you not?” Allen Bozwell: “Doc, I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t help holding Mildred’s hand in Chapel. Why she forced it on me.” NEWS ITEMS Mrs. Lyle Stocking sued Mr. Paris Garter for non-sup¬ port. A society scandal when no¬ body did any thing and some¬ body went and told it. T f she flirts with you. ' f she pursues you. If she appears indifferent If she spurns you If she says she doesn’t. If she says she does. If she says nothing at all. She Loves You She wore a dress I laughed at it, For brevity’s The soul of wit. Page Two Hundred Sixty-three FINIS And now, at last, our work is done; We’ve tried to mingle facts and fun; We pray you read with kindly mind— Be to our failures sweetly blind. . ... j- y ' . ■ : .
