THE CHOICEST WHEAT IS BEENDED IN yfCTOJ FLOUR The Crete Mills, home of VICTOR FLOUR, is never dependent upon any section for its wheat supply! Because of established shipping routes, wheat from the nation ' s finest wheat sec- tions can be brought through Crete on the way to markets. Therefore, The Crete Mills is in a position to select the finest wheat grown each year for blending in VICTOR FLOUR. This is an advantage only a mill as strategically located as The Crete Mills can have! Housewives noted for their excellent baking results say VICTOR FLOUR has no equal. VICTOR FLOUR has proved to these housewives that it means good bakings — bakings that keep fresh — and bakings that are economical. Be SURE your next sack of flour IS VICTOR FLOUR!

In this ant] the foUowing issues of your I ' lainsman. pictures, old and new, have f raduated from the role of illustrators to that of narrators. For the old, the staff searched out ancient |)hotoura];)hs for historical con- tinuity, and for the new. we secured contemporary photographs of every student, faculty member, and administrative oftker. Department pictures are as up-to-date as " Life " itself. Pictures, however, can portray only the surface of a scene or situ- ation, wherein reality does not always lie. Consequently, the photo- journalistic style was adopted, whereby the most effectual use of writing and photography nia_ ' be obtained. Since W ' esleyan university is organizetl in departments, the Plains- man record is in sections which will represent each department, in this and the succeeding issues. Departure from convention is the devotion of a page in the football section to the " cannon fodder " of the field, and the inclusion of a game chart showing graphicall} ' the important plays of the teams during a game. To give you, today ' s students of ' esleyan, a perspective of your school, and to awaken memories of facult_ - and alumni, a readable, enjoyable history was written of ' esleyans half-century in fat years and lean. The emphasis of present years and times is upon realism. Few W ' esleyan students now are not confronting things as they are. With knowledge that realism consists of the rewards as well as responsi- bilities of life, of the beauty as well as the duty, of the spiritual as well as the temporal, we are striving, and will strive to portray to you the realities of Weslevan.

The names of the Board of Trustees went into that «;tone. The charter of the University went into it. PhotoRraphs of Dr. CreiKhtun and of Dr. Lemon, general finano ' al agent, some current news- papers and other documents were seale l within the stone. i Nebraska Wcsleyan ' s years are piled one upon the other until they stand halt a hundred high. Pull down the years, then, that we may stack them up again. This eccentric review is historical, but it is not history, tor it makes no pretense to completeness or to accuracy. If you wish a conscientious study of our background, read Winship ' s " A History of Ne- braska Wesleyan University " . This is merely a photomontage of student life at Wesleyan with no apology for turning the adjective. Wesleyan, into a noun. Facts here recorded are recorded faithfully, yet there is no pretense of accuracy beyond the faulty documents upon which we draw: THE ORO. THE WESLEYAN, THE SUNFLOWER, THE COYOTE, THE PLAINSMAN, THE HANDBOOK, and the memories of Wesleyan men. Materials are quoted to bring together in one changing pattern the styles in composition effected by the changing generations of students. It we leave something out, supply it: tor this is only a student ' s catalogue of old junk and old treasure collected by student hands searching swiftly, (hough not carelessly, through (he stcred years c student lore. These are grand old years. In them are pictures as radiant as the face of the Christ in (he East Window when dawn breaks over the campus; episodes as funny as " frat " life during the " week of informal fun " ; scenes as shabby as the steps of Old Main, worn by Wesleyan feet and patched for the next generation by Wesleyan hands: scraps as poignant as the memory of candle light in (he chapel when Wesleyan girls sing carols at Christmas time. This Wesleyan is (he only college world in which we shall ever live; the only colleje world to whose story we shall inevitably add either glory or de- feat; pride or shame; ugliness or beauty; baseness or goodness.

SIIIKK. 1855 Before there was an organized Methodist church in Nebraska, before there was a church building in the entire territory, METHODISTS began to work for a Christian college. A charter for the founding of a Methodist university at Omaha was granted to 13 Methodists at the very first meeting of the territorial legislature in 1855. Numerous attempts were made to found the Methodist university, and finally three institutions were merged to foundation the present school — one at Bartley, one at Central City, and one at York. 1887 The Corner Stone On the 22nd of September the Nebraska Conference adjourned prompt- ly at II a. m. The Burlington and Missouri carried four coach loads of Methodists from Lincoln to Havelock and still others came by carnage. By 12:30 p. m. about 1,000 people had gathered. Dr. W. G. Miller, president of the board of trustees opened the ceremony. The first address was delivered by Bishop Hurst and the second by Dr. Moore, Chancellor of Denver University. Bishop Hurst deposited the records within the stone and It was placed by C. B. Fox, general superintendent of the work, assisted by Frank Robinson, foreman of brick work. Nebraska Wesleyan university, conceived in poverty, nurtured in sacrifice by pioneer Methodism, was born. Unknown Student Historian Later some student writing in the " Oro " put it much more poetically; " Even our University had to have a beginning. Not heralded by great blasts of trumpets, or coursing couriers, but gently as the opening bud shows the tiny streaks of white, but day by day unfolds new beauties, till the rose, with all of its colors harmoniously blended, is pronounced complete. " 1888 Registration Day — The Day of the Hammers! One year and three days later the enrollment books were opened at 10 a. m. But before the business of registration began, came the Chan- cellor ' s welcoming address that all generations of Wesleyan students know. The other evening in prayer meeting Chancellor Schwartz remarked that the extraneous noise in the halls did not much concern him. That same thing was true of the first Chancellor, Dr. Creighton. On that long ago September morning when registration began, the building was not yet finished. Carpenters, masons, plasterers, roofers, and painters were every- where. During the very first " Chancellor ' s Address to the Students " there was the counternoise of hammers. Through his speech, in which, inci- dentally, the chancellor announced that there would be chapel each day, there beat the insistent rhythm of hammers, hammers at work. Asked if the noise did not disturb him, the oldest Chancellor made answer as did the newest. " No, " he said. And went on to explain that to him the hammers were music, hymns of praise to the Almighty Cod. HALF A CENTURY AGO TO YOU! To You, Students of Nebraska Wesleyan University! Herbert R. Esterbrook was first in line to be registered. Ot sophomores there were seven; of freshmen, five; but of preparatory students there were 40; and unclassified, 23; art, music, elocution, 42. To You, Madame Registrar! The above figures included 19 duplicate names, so that the report of Registrar Ellinwood showed a grand total of 96 students. To You, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds! When you try to keep up with the task of supervising 45 workers in the difficult task of caring for our equipment, think of the beginning.

From student sources the University income was; Tuition. $10.00 per term. Incidental fee. $4.00. payable in advance. (Note: The Board of Trustees wanted to make the living expenses in University Place, called simply " The Place " , equivalent to nothing because the tuition was so high. To You, Members of the Faculty! The members of the first faculty seem to have had as much work to do as the present staff. " Reverend C. F. Creighton. Chancellor, taught Christian Ethics and Metaphysics. Prof. A. R. Wightman. A. M.. instructed in Latin. He had previously been acting president of York College and before that time had taught in Good Union college, New York. Rev. W. T. Cline. with 12 years of experience in high school and college, taught history and English. Prof. I. L. Lowe. Ph. D.. formerly president of New Orleans university, taught modern languages. His wife, Mrs. Ella Lowe, had also been a member of the faculty at New Orleans, and was now made principal of the art department at Wesleyan. Prof. H. G. Sedgwick, M. S., from Ithaca, N. Y., had been an instructor at Griswold college, Davenport, la., and now with one of the ' finest scientific outfits in the United States ' was made professor of technology and microscopy at Wesleyan. Prof. C. M. Ellinwood, with the degree Ph. M. from Northwestern university and four years ' experience as instructor at the same institution taught physics and chemistry. Miss Helen Almena Parker, also from Northwestern university, was in charge of the elocution department. At the time of the publication of the prospectus there were no professors selected to teach Greek, natu- ral history, and mathematics. A director of the department of music was also yet to be secured. The faculty met and elected officers to assist in the organization of their work. Prof. ' Wightman was made dean of the college of liberal arts; Professor Ellinwood, registrar and treasurer. Professor Lcwe, secretary; and Professor Cline, librarian. To You, President of the Board of Trustees! There were 21 members of the first board of trustees which served Nebraska Wesleyan university. And St. Paul ' s church was the first meeting place for Wesleyan friends; they gathered there on the evening of the day on which the corner stone was laid to finish the day ' s rejoicing. The names of those men who were Wesleyan ' s first trustees are sealed within the corner stone. They are: John B. Maxfield C. F. Creighton David Marquette F. W. Small N. R. Persinger C. A. Atkinson. Secretary A. J. Anderson Thomas B, Lemon J. W. Phelps Allen Bartley Alfred Hodgetts P, C. Johnson L. H. Rogers George W. Martin F. L. Mayhew W, C. Wilson J. ]. Imhoff. Treasurer L. Stevens, Vice-President C. C. White T. C. Webster W. C. Miller, President To You, Chancellor! The first Chancellor had to ad ni lister a faculty of eight, himself, a student body of 96, a little " school with a soul " . -eluding 1889 Before the Creeks The first catalog lists four literary so- cieties: Orophilian, Theophanian, Willard and Everett. At first no " spacious hall " in the university building was prov ided for the Willards, and they were compelled to hold their meetings in the afternoon. Finally the Everetts persuaded the faculty that it would be safe for the Willards to meet in the evening, and promised themselves as pro- tection. 1890 Before the Streetcar, the Bus, the Automobile, the Thumb At first the " Herdic " . a long, low cab with lengthwise seats and rear entrance, horse-drawn, was the only means of com- munication with outside civilization; but later there were street cars, because the catalog instructs: " Students coming to the University will take the street cars at the B M Depot or at any point on " O " street directly to the University. Students should time their arrival in the city so as to avoid the expense of a hotel at night. The last car arrives at University Place at 7 p. m. If parents will inform us of the arrival of their daughters at unseasonable hours, we will see that they are provided with proper escort. And the daughters were properly escorted to University Place, a splendid suburb just outside the city and accessible to all parts of it. No town in the West affords a better place in which to enjoy the advantages of an educational, social, and religious com- munity. It IS rapidly growing and bids fair to become an Evanston m a very few years. The air is pure, the water plenty, and the haunts of vice and crime relegated to other places. " Wesleyan Papers First editor-in-chief, Fred Stuff. (Note: Dr. Frederick A. Stuff, professor of literature at the University of Nebraska.) " The Hatchet " , first Wesleyan news- paper! " Eccretian " , later name. The editor of the Eccretian was F. L. Winter, and his personal column was called the Wintry Blast. All copies of these and other publications which may have been issued prior to the " Wesleyan " are lost. 1893 " The Nebraska Wesleyan " The four literary societies who had issued publications seem to have gotten together by ' 93 under the title " The Wesleyan Pub- lishing Association " . They issued the first " Wesleyan " . The paper was in magazine form, and seems to have been a real forward step, for the editor of one of the former publications writes: " Sample copies of the ' Wesleyan ' have just been received. I can- not express in words my appreciation and approbation of the spirit manifest in the columns of the issues sent. Having been in the habit of closely scrutinizing every col- lege journal which came to my notice dur- ing my college life, I desire to say that I have never seen an issue with a neater makeup than the numbers of Vol. IV of the ' Nebraska Wesleyan ' . It is with delight akin to pride that I see the ideals of the first editor-in-chief of the ' Nebraska Wes- leyan. so far fallen short of, now being realized because of the fraternal spirit of a united student body. My heartiest con- gratulations and best wishes to yourself and each of your esteemed associates. I hope all factions can say what Bancroft tells us that the Mohawk Indians said when the French treaty was made: ' We have thrown the hatchet so high in the air, and beyond the skies, that no arm on earth can reach to bring it down. ' When the Nebraska Wesleyan University is clothed in the beau- tiful garments of peace, she is armed cap-a- pie. Very truly yours, Fred A. Stuff, ' 93. " Football Wesleyan ' s first football game was a practice game with Cotner on Saturday. October I 1. Our team had no uniforms. Only two of our men ever played previously, and some of them actually never saw a game before. The score was 20- 1 in favor of Cotner. Football was not actually abandoned at Wesleyan until 1898, but other forms of sport were quite as important. For instance, at 6 a. m. September 23, 1904, 45 men lined up to run to " Lover ' s Alley " and back for amusement and exercise. 1894-5 The Military Military drill was compulsory with all gentlemen students and optional with ladies. nE. .v .11. .ii;. si:. niiki ' ..f Wt ' .v.?, Ill ' N.-linisU.i: irli. ' l si; It was taught not so much to make soldiers as to make gentlemen, and since the aims were educational young ladies were eligible. Later, however, the situation seems to have become more militant. When the call was made for volunteers for the Spanish-Ameri- can war 50 Wesleyan boys responded. Four fell on the battlefield. Fire! The Haish Manual Training school, " one of the best buildings in the country if indeed it had any rival " was completely destroyed by fire. Mr. Jacob Haish had spent over $50,000 just one year before to build and equip it. 1896 There were only two alumni who were not subscribing to the " Wesleyan " . Sub- scription to students and alums, $1 per year. Elocution Recital — November 18 " Burglars " — Miss Sharp. " The Beles " — Tulin. Music. " Spartans to the Gladiators " — Mr. Law- son. " The Jiner " — Miss Cearheart (Bess Cear- heart Morrison). Music. " The Old Clock on the Stairs " — Mr. Lemon. " How Pat Went Wooing " — Miss Mickey. Music. " Ninety and Nine " — Miss Coolbaugh. " Miss Sharp spoke with force and natural- ness. Miss Mickey was perfectly at home in her dialect selection ' Pat ' s Wooing ' and increased her popularity with Wesleyan audiences. Closing recitation by Miss Cool- baugh. It is difficult to describe Miss Cool- baugh ' s style, but she has an individuality that IS very pleasing. Her performance on this occasion was fully up to the expecta- tions of her audience. " Now there were evidently some dullards who failed to appreciate this recital and the editor spoke his mind. " At elocution recital the other evening we noticed some very ill-mannered people keeping up a lively conversation in the back part of the room, during some of the numbers, especially the music. It IS generally shallowheads that do the most chattering, but even a shallow- head, if it had nothing in it but skimmed rain water, would have more sense, it seems to us, than to display its idiotic tendencies in public this way. Why such freaks go to an entertainment that they cannot appreci- ate IS a mystery to us! " One Complaint the Years Have Completely Redressed " The great bane of student life is the formation of habits of study which hold the students to his books 1 to 13 hours a day. " 1897 The Subject of Electric Lights Before City Council Action favorable! (Electric hansom, horse- less carnage, is now the most used vehicle in New York City. It is run at rates of 1 5 miles an hour.) 1900 First Yearbook The " Sunflower " is a thin leather-bound volume of " literary gems " . 1901 The first college quartet to gain the dis- tinction of being engaged by the Central Lyceum Bureau of New York was the Ne- braska Wesleyan Male Quartette. The Bureau said of them: " This is unquestion- ably the most popular quartet in the field today. " So great was their popularity in New York and New England that in many cities they returned for third and fourth concerts in their four winters of concert touring. Directed by Prof. E. L. Locke, the per- sonnel of the quartet was; C. J. Ireland, tenor and whistler; F. W. Farmer, second (ruiiliinu ' d ou pngP 4.

S., Ph. D., who has headed the Biology department since 1913, came to ' esleyan as professor of botany in that year. Since 1919 he has been professor of biology. Dr. Shirk, whose name is listed in the Journal of Am- erican Men of Science, is a Fellow of the American .Association for Advance- ment of Science. With a year of high school and two short terms in an academy, Claude Shirk fulfilled his college entrance requirements. Then, between 1896 and 1902, he earned the degrees of A. R., M. S D., and A. M, from : IcPherson College, jNIcPherson, Kansas, with only one year of resident work, hav- ing taken the rest by correspondence, two and a half years of which was done while Shirk and his brother worked on a great alfalfa ranch in the Pecos valley in New Mexico. 360 Credit Hours When he began work at Chicago University for his Ph. D., Professor Shirk had 360 hours of college credit. For that degree, he worked nine quar- ters at Chicago, which work was transferred to the University of Ne- braska where he completed his doctor ' s thesis in 1924 on the salt marsh plants of the Lincoln marshes. Mrs. Laona Underkofler, A. B. with distinction, 1931, A. M. 1936, both de- grees from Wesleyan, has been an instructor in biology since 1931. Irs. Underkofler, through her per- sonal contact with students in the laboratories, helps them to make the transition between high school and college. She interprets the complex terminology of the courses, reduces hazy ideas to facts, and gives the some- times bewildered pre-meds tangible knowledge with which to work. Biology Mrs. Underkofler ' s sons, Harlan and Galen, have graduated from Wesleyan. For five years, she was housemother for the Delta Omega Phi fraternity. " Most prc-meds come here as stu- dents, and never get over it. " — Arthur Iiachman, biology lab assistant. Every year ten or fifteen freshmen enter the pre-medical training course in the pious hope of becoming doc- tors. Half of them survive to be junior or third-year students, eligible to enter graduate medical school. No group of students hits the ball any harder than these. With few excep- tions, a good pre-med student gets little glory on the campus. His social life is limited, and the vast amount of study and laboratory work he does wins no schoolwide acclaim. There is not time enough in the days for all the labs he must take. There are times when a pre-med has no classes, but he never has a vacation. " Learn to organize — to interpret the literature. " — Dr. Shirk. The 1,725 biology volumes in the library are twelve-hour books, in which frequent and wide readings are as- signed. Eighty-one current biological science magazines are available, with complete files of 30 of them. The Walter Shopbell fund, 200 dollars con- tributed annually by an alumnus who visits Wesleyan with his camera every spring, aids much in keeping up the magazines. Well Equipped Some ten thousand dollars worth of equipment is owned by the depart- ment. The expensive Auzoux anatomi- cal model of the human body, life size, and dissectible into the important units of musculature and organs, is used by anatomy students, pre-meds, and nurses. Last year, the University of Ne- braska opened its premedical honorary society, Theta Nu, to Wesleyan stu- dents. Membership, based on high scholastic standing, is limited to thirty, with elections held to replace stu- dents entering graduate college. From Wesleyan, Warner Nelson and Nlerle Mahr were elected. Nu- led, society of all pre-med students at State, is also open to Wesleyan students. KI.AINK mtdWN. si f Brynn licispifMl, ,nt tlii ' iiiicnisi-.ipo in liMi ' tiTinliisiy l:ib.

Twenty-five student nurses are en- rolled this year, five of whom are now in training at Bryan Memorial hospital, ' ith one year of pre-nursing training in any of several hospitals in the state, a girl may earn her quali- fication of registered nurse. By an additional year at Wesleyan she may receive a B. S. degree. In bacteriology, the first course for student nurses, the use of microscopes is thoroughly explained. The making; of slides, important in this work, is taught. Actual disease causing bacilli are studied, as well as fungi, yeasts, molds, and viruses. Neatness, cleanli- ness, precision in laboratory techniciu? are stressed. The laboratory uses microscopes, other small ec|uipment, and the funda- mental machinery of bacteriology, an incubator to maintain uniform tem- peratures for bacterial cultures, a dry air sterilizer, and a steam pressure sterilizer. Microtechnique, a second semester course, gives practice in actual bloorl count work, microscope tests and la- boratory clinical work. Hygiene, gen- eral and social, and inorganic chemis- try, complete the training reciuired of a nurse before she enters the hospital. About one-fourth of the Wesleyan students each year take work in the biology department, and while the greater fame of the department has ijeen achieved through its training of physicians, nurses, and research work- ers, its objective of giving a general fundamental knowledge to many stu- dents is an important reason for its success. .Since 1913, 147 stufients have com- pleted a major in the biology depart- ment. Of these twenty have gradu- ated with honor, and twenty-seven have secured fellowships to Yale, Princeton, Chicago University, Iowa State, the University of Nebraska, University of Missouri. New York University, Northwestern, and St. Louis University. Si.xteen are now college or universit - professors, seven are in research positions, three are missionaries, and two are ministers. Eight master ' s degrees have been granted. In this year, two biology graduates are studying on fellowships : Raymond Wilhelmi, at New York University, and Edward Weaver at the Universitv of ?

GII.I.AM By NEIL DAVIS Chemistry is being recognized and proved to be the center of all branches of science. It made possible the Kronz? age, the Iron age, and the Machine age. This subject is important in gen- eral education in that it acquaints the student with the scientific method which has so greatly modified our civi- lization. Chemistry is closely related to the study and progress of electrons and protons in unit, and in their ag- gregate form in which they compose the ninety-two known elements. Here at Wesleyan the central figure in this central science, chemistry, is W. S. Gillam, A. B., M. Sc, Ph.D. Dr. Gillam is new this year, but al- ready he has proven two important NEII. D.WIS at the wator stiU. Chemistry facts to us. First, he is qualified to have a Ph. D. The amount of chem- istry that guy knows I And second, that he was recently enough a student himself to remember the problems of college life. And the ease with which he explains problems, that to us chem- istry students looked pretty tough! Perhaps you know that organic chem- istry was recently voted the most dif- ficult course of a college curriculum, and here a good lecturer certainly helps, for even if it is the most diffi- cult it probably remains the most fascinating when properly explained. Dr. Gillam taught at the University of Nebraska for three years before coming to Wesleyan as head of the chemistry department in 1938. He re- ceived his A. B. degree from DePauw university in 1930, getting his l. Sc. , in 1933. and Ph.D. in 1938 from the University of Nebraska. Dr. Gillam is a member of Sigma Xi, Phi Lambda Upsilon, Gamma Sigma Delta, Phi Mu . lpha, . merican Chemical So- ciety, and Soil Science Society of . merica. Four Assistants From 1935 to 1938, Professor Gillam was in charge of a state soil survev ' crew which mapped Cass and Lan caster counties. He hopes to give a course in soils in connection with the chemistry department next year. Dr. (;illam has published a work on soil . ' Ike Foi-Diathm of Lime Concretions ill the Moody and Crojton Series, and has at press, The Geographical Dis- tribution of Soil Black Pigment. Soil Survey Besides Dr. Gillam, we have in our three laboratories four assistants and two storerootii men. This year we have Homer Hix, a Phi Kappa Tau, in the storeroom, who, when he isn ' t juggling j the chemicals around, whirls the baton i for the Wesleyan band. His fellow sufferer in the storeroom is Harold Pickering. He says he doesn ' t ha -e g time for a hobby, but it ' s fellows like 1 Pickering that keep the chemistry de- partment among the Phi Kappa Phi ' s. The chemistry department had two of the six Phi Kappxi Phi ' s in the school last ' ear.

He says he doesn ' t have any hobby either except wanting to be a doctor, and that ' s no hobby, that ' s a job. His partner in crime is Bob Gottschalli of Benkel- man, a pre-med too, and a Delta Omega Phi. He has a holjby, and she ' s a nice kid. This year Xeil Davis, a senior barb from Lincoln, is handling all four or- ganic labs, and also is trying to go to three quantitative labs a week; then the teachers wonder why he says he ' s busv. His hobbv is football and bas- ketball. The assistants are chosen from the chemistry students who make the best (23;) O l,.V15. In front of lab t:ible. loft to right— Lloj- t, Kiirl Brown.

We think it is a real system because it gives them an opportunity for self- help, and it gives them valuable ex- perience in chemistry. General Idea This is a general idea of our chem- istry department here at Wesleyan. If there be just a few of you who read this who feel the call and excitement living in chemistry, which is now the frontier of advancement in civiliza- tion, then we ' ll be satisfied. Today chemists are in great demand, and be- cause of their growing importance to all types of industrial and research businesses the field is just in its in- fancy. Wesleyan is a good place to enter that field for in the last 20 years, 26 major students have been d Frederick, Bob Twinem, —Lois Rnsmussen, Marion placed for graduate assistantships. Last year two major students received assistantships totaling $1,400. Wes- leyan ' s continued success in placing its graduate students indicates that these students give the graduate schools good results. CU£ V T 7 DK. KUSE U. ( ' LAKK By C. SHARP Mainspring of Wesleyan ' s depart- ment of geography and geology is Rose B. Clark, who holds from the Univer- sity of Nebraska an A.B., A.M., and Ph.D. luch of the work for the two higher degrees was done at the Uni- versity of Chicago and at New York with the American Geo graphical So- ciety under direction of Dr. Isaiah Bowman, who is now president of Johns Hopkins. Dr. Clark is listed in American Men of Science, Who ' s Wlio in America, Wfio ' s Who Among Am- erican Women, Leading Women of America, and Who ' s Who Among North American Authors. In 1932 Dr. Clark succeeded Pro- fessor W. G. Bishop, founder and head of the department of geography. Dr. Clark has been head of the depart- ment of geography at Peru state teach- ers college, and has taught as guest lecturer in summer sessions at the University of Nebraska, at Western Reserve in Cleveland, and at liami University, a state university at Ox- ford, Ohio. Author Dr. Clark is author of the books. Geography In the Grades, Geography of Nebraska, Unit Studies in Geogra- phy, which was listed by the A. L. A. as one of the 60 best books in Educa- tion of the year, and Geography In the Schools of Europe. These books have been written into the courses of study of most modern public schools of America. Geography-Geology When Rose B. Clark left a super- ising project in the W ' esleyan Train- ing schools to become head of Wes- leyan ' s department of geography and geology, she brought a teaching tech- nique that has resulted in the securing of state and nationwide recognition for her graduates. Harvey Thompkins, ' 36, after graduate study at the Uni- versity of Nebraska, is a Junior Soil Technologist at Blair, Nebraska. Dr. Walter Hansen is professor of geog- raphy at North Texas State Teachers College. One of the highest honors brought to Wesleyan was bestowed this year when Ralph Olson, " 35, re- ceived an American Field Service fel- lowship from the Institute of Inter- national Education, which entitled him to a year of European study. He is writing his doctoral dissertation on the political geography of Luxem- bourg. " Facts are stupid things until they arc brought into connection with some general law. " — Louis Agassiz. TITLE PACE FROM ONE OF DR. CLARK ' S BOOKS: REPORT OF THE COMMISSIO.V ON THE SOCIAL STUDIES GEOGRAPHY IN RELATION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES Isaiah Bowman iilOGRAPHV IN THE SCHOOLS OF EUROPE BY Rose B C lark CHARLES SCRIBNERS SONS ) OR L; CRICiGO N f K ANCISCO ■OSTOS ATLANTA DALLAS In the yellow hills of India at a town named Cherrapunji. four hun- dred inches of rain fall in one year. In the Libyan erg, a temperature of 150° Fahrenheit sometimes occurs, and a man must not touch the barrel of the rifle he carries. Why so much rain? and what is an erg, and who cares? Eighteen weeks of Human Geography under the skilful question- ing of Dr. Clark will unfold and inte- grate a living story that will not only answer such questions but will con- tain principles by which the great phenomena of the world can be inter- preted. Field Tour When students see the state ' s largest cement plant in action, visit rock quar- ries and brick kilns in operation, and are shown conservation projects where the long hills are laid out in great contoured patterns, they know that modern college geography is concerned with far more than the location of dots on a map. It is not implied that maps have a minor place in the de- partment. Maps are studied, made and interpreted, maps that show drain- age systems and patterns, that show how mountains form the backbone of a continent, how soil types are dis- tributed over a continent, and the way ores and minerals are distributed among nations. " don ' t want a broken string of beads. " — Dr. Clark. Human Geography and Physical Geology, with their illuminating prin- ciples, are the bases for courses in economic geography, for regional studies and conservation courses which show why the cities of the world are where they are, why the trade routes follow the paths they do, and why some nations have not the vital re- sources that would have made them great. Facts learned in the study of geog- raphy are assimilated by the writing of units which cover a related set of learnings. Writing a unit is a painful process, but it teaches the assembly, selection, and organization of facts as no other way of learning can do, and it largely alleviates the pain of ex- aminations.

The Yellow and Hrown won four games, each oddly enough from a school with the colors of Pdue and White, as against four defeats and the one tie. In the Doane, Midland, and Hastings games. Martin Brasch played full games proving himself truly an " iron man " , and a leading candidate for All-Conference center. ' hen injuries made a shortage of guards, John ' anElls was shifted from tackle to this spot. The Midland tilt showed that he wouldn ' t be stopped. All season long Xeil Davis blocked, and blocked out those would-be tacklers. . t Hastings his all-around play was a fitting climax to a grand career. SNIost All-Conference selections picked Johnny .Staten for a backfield post. This year " Jawn ' s " defensive play and ball toting ranked with the best. Elongated LaX ' aun Price cjuarterbacked the Plainsmen -his year. His pass receiving set the stage for several of ' esleyan ' s touchdowns. Don Williams, one of the most consistent ends in the con- ference, was a tough cookie on both offense and defense. Another tough man is Captain Raleigh Ripley, one sweet guard. His opponents had no trouble in spotting Ripley ' s hard playing. Floyd Ralston played an aggressive game at guard this sea- son to advance to an All-Conference rating. His hobby was play- ing in the opponent ' s backfield. The specialty of Dale Magnuson, fullback, was backing up the Plainsman line, and tearing the opponent ' s line to shreds. Speedy and shifty Charles Burroughs turned in several long gains on end runs. His passing and plunging was a real asset to the team. Tackle Gerald " Beefy " Gardner, " the biggest football player in the nation, " starred previously at Omaha university. Beefy played every game with all he had and that was plenty. When the Weslejan attack stopped, little Don Otto ' s running, punting, and passing often set the Plainsman machine rolling again. For a small sized fellow, Frank " The Champ " Harrington did a first class job of blocking and ball toting. In his first year of football Bob Braun gained needed experi- ence and at Midland proved that he ' s got plenty of snap and drive. For dependability John Lay rates high, his defensi e work being his strong point. From many a pileup he emerged with the tackle. Old carrot top George Carne is one who is headed for great things next year. His work this year was very commendable. The toe of Bill Wilhelm, end, kept Wesleyan out of many holes. His play this season ranked him high in the X.C.A.C. Russell Merrill played some grand ball at tackle this year, while blocking back, freshman Ray Bailey, worked his wa - up to one of the top backfield spots. Bob Anderson filled in at center, doing a grand job of it. and the play of Andrew Johnson served notice that he is one to be watched next season. AuGUSTANA 20 Wesleyan In the opening game of the season, Nebraska Wesleyan ' s Plainsmen bowed before the Augustana Redskins at Sioux Falls, South Dakota 20 to 0. The Dakotans scored in the first, second, and third quarters. The first touchdown was a result of an intercepted pass. A second interception again set them up for an easy tally. The Redskins chalked up their last score when they blocked a Plainsman punt and recovered behind the goal line. (28) The Thomasmen almost scored twice, their first drive end- ing on the six-yard line where they lost the ball on downs. The other threat came in the third period when they advanced to the eight-yard stripe before again losing the ball on downs. Wcsleyan ' s offensive looked ragged, and had no drive in the pinches. Their defense, however, showed possibilities, for the Redskins never crossed the Plainsman , 0-yard line with the exception of their three markers. Wksi.kyan 14 York Two successful scoring spurts in the second (|uarter put the skids under York ' s invading Panthers, and Wesleyan won its opening home game 14 to 0. Vesle an ' s threat of the first quarter failed, but in the second period Hill Ralston ' s recovery of a York fumble on the Panther 1(1 set up the scoring pins. Charles Hurroughs in four successive off-tackle plays I)ehind beautiful interference sliced through to score. La ' aun Price ' s placement adxanced the Plainsman lead tc 7-0. Later in the second period Wesleyan took the ball on ' ork ' s 44. Don Otto and Johnny Staten made it a first down. Two of Powniaster ' s passes to Staten were good and the Methodists scored again. Xeil Davis took a toss from Howmaster for the extra [joint and the Plainsmen led 14 to 0. . third quarter Thomasman drive fi . led on York ' s two-yard line. The Panthers, in turn, knocked on ' esleyan ' s five in the fourth period, before they were halted. In the final minutes of the game, the Plainsmen, led by Howmaster smashed to York ' s ihree-yard line where the final gun stii]iped them. .M.ARVvii.i.E 21 Veslevan 12 Even though the Plainsman aerial attack of the last six minutes which netted them 12 points, fell short of the 21 -point lead that Maryville ' s Hobcats chalked up previously, Wesleyan ' s eleven very definitely rocketed liack into the picture for a suc- cessful season. Trailing 14 to in the third (|uarter, the Plainsmen shifted into high. Hill W ' ilhelm ' s long punt plus a penalty pushed Mary- ville back to their 11. Don Williams then blocked Maryville ' s punt and Wilhelm outran the invaders ' backfield, to recover be- hind the Cats ' goal for a touchdown. The attempt at the extra point failed and the score was laryville 14, Wesleyan 0. The Teachers launched a 5S-yard drive to score again. The cf)nversion gave Maryville a lead of 21 to 6. liut the Plainsmen wouldn ' t be stopped. LaX ' aun Price gal- loped to the Thomasmen ' s 3i. Charles Hurroughs faded and passed to Price on the Cats ' 25-yard stripe. Price ' s aerial to Davis was good to the 10. After two plays Hurroughs passed to Wilhelm for the Methodists ' second tally. The attempt at the extra point failed, and the game ended soon after the kickoff. Wesleyan 6 Kearney Even though they were pushed all over the field, and out- downed 15 to four, Nebraska Wesleyan ' s Plainsmen upset the highly favored Kearney Teachers 6 to 0. The Thomasmen scored in the last five minutes. Johnny Staten ' s 3S-yard pass to LaVaun Price paved the way. Staten and Dale Magnuson ripped off yardage to the Kearney 1,5. Price ' s lateral to Staten put the ball on the Antelopes ' four-yard line. Staten made it a first down and Dale Magnuson plowed over the Kearney forward wall to score. The attempt at the extra |)()inl failed. " But Kearney didn ' t give up, and using their passing attack, drove to the Plainsman three. Don Williams knocked down the next Kearney pass, and on the final play the Plainsmen balked on the one- ard stripe. Hill Wilhelm ' s punting, an alert pass defense, and a stout hearted line that r efused to budge when the invaders threatened the Plainsman goal, kept the Antelopes from scoring on five dif- ferent occasions. This combined with a Ijackficld who wouldn ' t be stopped brought the Thomasmen a hard earned victory. (29) Midland 19 Wesi.eyan NVU.l.lAM - I- IIAIiKIXGToX. Ill; JOHNSON, K Midland ' s Ixig of tricks proved to i)e too much f(ir Wesleyan ' s fighting Plainsmen, for the Warriors chalked up a U to ' ictory over the invading Lincolnites. The Fremonters did all their scoring in the first half. The lidlanders started a 48-yard drive that in six plays crossed the Plainsman goal line. The kick for the extra point split the up- rights. The second period had hardly started when a Warrior broke loose on a 22-yard run which added six more points to the Mid- land total. The attempt at the extra p oint failed. Later in the second quarter a 26-yard Midland pass caught the Wesleyanites off balance and the Warriors tallied for their third and last time. The second half was closely contested and hard fought. While much of the play was in the Thomasmen ' s territory, neither eleven crossed the other ' s 15-yard line in the second canto. The Plainsman offensive never clicked, although speedy Don Otto turned in a brilliant job of broken field running. Over 200 Wesleyanites, including the Pride of the Plainsman band, attended the game. DoANE 19 -Wesi.eyan 6 Wesleyan ' s gridders bogged down after a thrilling march in the first quarter netted them a touchdown, as the Doane Tigers ruined, not only the Plainsmen ' s hopes for an X. C. A. C. cham- pionship, but their Homecoming as well, with a convincing win of 19 to 6. Early in the first period Johnny Staten and Bill Wilhelm crashed through to block a Doane punt and recover for Wesleyan on the Tiger five. After three plays put the ball nn the two. Staten drove oft " tackle for the Yellow and Brown touchdown. The kick for the extra point was wide. In the second canto, Doane recovered a Thomasman fumble on ' esleyan ' s 20. A combination end run and a lateral hit pay dirt for the Tigers. La ' aun Price knocked down their pass for the extra point. The Cretemen scored their second tally on a pass and a run down the sidelines. The placekick for the extra point was perfect. In the final c|uarter, Doane smashed down the field 63 yards for six more points. The try for the extra point failed. The final gun stopped a last minute Plainsman drive. Wesleyan 6 Peru A Plainsman eleven composed of ten seniors in the last home game of their grid careers and on e junior downed the " Blue and White " Bobcats, 6-0 in the Wesleyan bowl. After three successive fumbles in the first canto, Wes- leyan took possession of the ball on the Peru 48. LaX ' aun Price and Charles Burroughs ripped off yardage to push the ball to Peru ' s 18. On a double reverse, behind perfect blocking, Bur- oughs covered the remaining yard for a score. Price ' s place- kick was wide. In the second quarter, Peru recovered a Wesleyan fumble drove down the fielld, but the stout Plainsman line stopped e cats on the four-yard line. A dull third period passed but with the opening of the fourth, Peru marched down the field 66 yards before the Plains- men rallied to stop them on their own six. Peru threatened once more, but again their attack was stopped. The ictory bell rang out in the crisp night air : the seniors had won their last home game, and Wesleyan her third victory of the season. o ' oiit iinu-ii to p.ia:o t o) (30) Cannon Fodder .- ' .

Pint-sized Ralph Bowmaster proved to be a (|uarterback of promise. Byron Johnson, too, worked well in the backfield. During scrimmages, the cannon fodder stood their ground well. The center of the line, consisting of Harry Baker, Lloyd Frederick, and Leoran Spooner, was battered, but very stub- born. Tackles Alfred Tietjen and Keith Clifton gave the regulars plenty of stiff resistance. The ends, Ernest Bartley and Harold Boyle, worked hard, while backfield men, Lee McAllister and Marvin E llis, served nobly. These dozen men helped to build a stronger, scrappier Plainsman eleven.

Wesi.eyan Hastings The fighting Plainsmen rode the Hastings Broncs convincingly last Thanksgiving day at Hastings to ob- tain a 0-0 tie, not only outdowning them by a large margin, but because of the tie, blasting them out of a share of the N.C.A.C. grid crown. The first half found the Broncs on the defensive for the Golden Plains- men with their stout line and hard- running backs, kept them continually in the shadow of their goal, outdown- ing them four to one. in the third quarter the Thomas- men began a sustained drive with Jonny Staten and Dale Magnuson smashing through the Bronc line to the Hastings ' 10 before they were halted. Two Bronc placekicks in the fourth period failed, and even recovery of a Wesleyan fumble plus a penalty, failed to produce a score for the Horses. Their line plays were stopped cold by Wesknan ' s " seven pillars of granite " , while the Plainsman pass defense was air tight.

LATIN To meet the needs of those who have not had more than two years of high school Latin, the first year course begins with a review of essential forms and principles. This is followed by readings from Tlie Lives of Xepos, and some orations of Cicero, with exercises in prose composition. In the second and ensuing years, courses are offered to those who are qualified in Vergil, Cicero, Livy, Horace, and Plautus, covering philo- sophic essays, history, the epic, satire, and comedv. The modern language de]xirtment of Nebraska Wcsleyan university, as old as the school itself, has caught the vigor and life of the languages it studies. I ' rof. .Marietta .Sncnv. A. ! ' ..

Miss Dorothy Smith, graduate u! I ' niversity of ' ichita with a major in French, teaches lirst and third year French. Foremost objective of the modern language department is that its stu- dents obtain a mastery of their sub- ject, and in so doing, gain a s ' m[)a- thetic understanding of the i)eo[)le whose language they study. To Miss Smith falls the task of making mid-westerners realize that there is actually a nation whose people speak French, morning, noon, and night. Fraulein Snow, as her pupils knf)w her, energetic, earnest, quizzically hu- morous, endows with life the guttural, incomprehensible Germanic polysyl- lables, aiui her students may be iden- tified by their occasional endeavors to communicate with each other in Ger- man while not in the classroom. W ' esleyanites passing Professor Snow ' s classroom learn not to be startled by lusty strains of " Zehn Tausend Mann " or other folksongs. Through the windows they may see the professor leading the class in sing- ing folksongs, and enjoying it as much as thev do. Professor Marietta Snow Instructor Dorothy Smith IT ' S AI.I.

By DOROTHY M, PETERS A twirl of the Ijaton, a slmrt sharp whistle, a clany of the cymbals, and the Prifie of the riainsman Ijand moves forward in rhythmic left-ri.i ht, left-ri,u,ht. Such a scene has been the order of the hour on the football fields of Wesleyan and neighboring schools many times this fall. For Nebraska Wesleyan University has a marching band, the first of its kind and accomplishment in years. Director Alfred Hoberg is a ' esle_ an graduate of the class of 1935, past music supervisor at Klmwood high school, and post graduate student at Xorthwestern uni- versity. Highlights in the activiti-js of the band this year have been the trips to Midland and Tarkio and the maneuvers at the half of the annual Homecoming game with Doane. At Midland the band first took over the streets of the city of Fremont and then at the half " stole the show " with marching and letter formations. Tarkio was also taken over by the invarling horde of yellow and brown uniformed Plainsmen, who entertained the crowd royally at the half. The Homecoming crowd was treated to the unusual spectacle of a D for Doane from a " huddle " formation, a W for the " yellow and the brown " , a series of countermarches, and an elaborate serpentine.

That ' s the term applied to the Pep Club, an organization which promotes a spirit of pep and enthusiasm, engineers snake dances and parades through the village, and fosters a lively Wesleyan fighting spirit for athletic battles. Sitting in a compact unit, the club is the nucleus of organized noisy support. The club plans rallies, with the band, and with such speakers as Oz Black, Gregg McBride, Doc Mayo, Chancellor, and Coach, as excitement getters. Among its various activities, the club plans the colorful Homecoming celebration, decorates the campus in school colors, and leads a torchlight parade around the village to view house decorations. Another project is the year ' s social high light, the Big Snob-Old Grouch party which the group sponsors in the spring. The Yellers of the Brown organize a transportation system which carries the student body to invade opponents ' towns for at least one football and one basketball game. W ' esleyanites took over Fremont this fall, and although INIidland topped the scoring, the community rocked with that driving force called Wesleyan spirit which was fostered by the club and the band. Bright yellow sweaters — nearly 40 of them — dazzle eyes at rallies and games. . Ml new members are on probation until they prove themselves worthy of wearing the sweaters which bear the brown insignia of the organization. il + - I ?

A. had organized the Volunteer Bath club with a membership of about one hundred. Com- ment was made that you could tell the members by the difference in their appear- ance. There must have been some truth in the statement for the day after Christmas in 1900 the " Wesleyan " carried a com- plaint from the co-eds who demanded the right to use University Place ' s one bathtub. And It was determined that the faculty should formulate rules for its use. " Gentle- men will be allowed the bath privileges daily from 3 to 4 p. m. and ladies 4:30 to 6 p. m. This concession for the ladies is a move in the right direction. " 1902 Forensics If you saw an upperclassman with his shoes blacked, his hat brushed or a new necktie on, he was going to orate in chapel. Each junior and senior was required to give one oration each semester. |ohn )ensen (Dean J. C. Jensen) was one of the ) 5 contestants for one of Wesleyan ' s first varsity debate teams. 1903 The Armory Old Main ' s east wing was finally com- pleted for use as gymnasium and armory. Imagine rows of guns along the walls in the dining hall. It was used for an armory off and on up to and including the period of the world war. 1904 C. C. White Memorial The much-needed and long-planned music conservatory was being built at last. There were 300 students enrolled in the courses which the building was designed to house. Senior Recognition Day The seniors appeared for the first time in their black nightgowns and cardboard hats in October of 1904 .The faculty was alert to signs of trouble among the juniors. The chancellor in his speech of appreciation to the class cautioned all students against mak- ing the senior class debut a scene of not. The seniors appeared at all classes until noon in their official regalia. 1907 Student Handbook The Nebraska Wesleyan Directory was published and GIVEN to each student and faculty member with the compliments of the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. First Men ' s Glee Club. Professor Hadley was the first director. 1908 Football Again Up to the time of Professor Clevenger ' s advent in the fall of 1907, Wesleyan had never realized that of which she was capable in athletics. " Clev ' s " exhaustless energy and kindly courage were guiding Wesleyan to show herself worthy of membership in the Missouri Valley conference. In 1898 the " Wesleyan " had editorially banished football, but now at the request of the students it was brought back to the athletic program. In the years that fol- lowed Wesleyan played such schools as Kansas State University, Wyoming State College, and South Dakota. Drama An old English comedy by Richard B. Sheridan.

In the book " Education en the Air " there is a discussion of Wesleyan ' s pioneer station: " They were broadcasting from Nebraska Wesleyan university, if you call it broadcasting, with a one-kilowatt station set in the early days of the war. They began sending out the headlines of the paper by radio, along with weather fore- casts. The present radio transmitter was purchased in the fall of 1920, and they have been broadcasting over it ever since. One of the first lectures ever given in their part of the country was given by radio in 1923, when a class of about 20, each equipped with a head set, ' listened in ' . That gives you an idea that they have been broadcasting for some time. " — f I 4.._.„ The Sweetest Christmas Gift MRS.

Under direction of B. E. McProud, dean of the teacher ' s college, and Miss Rose B. Clark, educational supervisor, the school has carried on this experiment for four years. Achievements under this plan have been striking.

Aeolian girls with t heir AE pin became Alpha Epsilon; then Omicron of Beta Phi Alpha in 1928. Theo girls were Kosdia in 1916; then Alpha Kappa Delta; were Beta Alpha chap- ter of Alpha Gamma Delta in 1927. Theo men were Theta Phi Sigma under the 1917 Creek influence; merged with Everetts to make Crescent fraternity in 1932. Oro girls became Nu chapter of Alpha Delta Theta in 1927. Oro men were Phi Beta Sigma in 1917; Upsilon chapter of Phi Kappa Tau in 1923. Zeta Phi, Delta Phi. and Alpha Delta Omega organized in 1917. Zeta Phi merged with Willard in 1932; the others dissolved. Gamma Mu Epsilon became a chapter of Theta Upsilon in 1932. 1934 " The Plainsman " Wesleyan ' s first annual was " The Oro " , published by the group which is now Alpha Delta Theta and Phi Kappa Tau. The " Sun- flower " was the work of freshmen. Lee Greenslit, member of the board of trustees, was the editor of the first " Coyote " and it was with his full approval that, in 1934, the " Coyote " became the " Plainsman " . The form of the book has changed more than Its title. It is now a magazine rather than a collection of literary " gems " . Its emphasis IS on news rather than on artistic layout. 1938 " Cold and Frankincense and Myrrh " Through the years Wesleyan ' s children have brought gifts. The east window was put there by the older sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta; the stone arch, the corner stone of C. C. White Memorial, the audi- torium clock, the stone obelisk, the complete furnishings for the auditorium stage — the rug, the pulpit, the big chairs in which sit our chancellors and deans — the lights on the campus, the pipe organ, the beginning of the Wesleyan bowl, and the Rose Mem- orial Observatory; all these and many other gifts have Wesleyan ' s students given. Perhaps more significant than these, more significant than gifts of money we find scattered through the records — ' 08, endow- ment fund $600; ' 18, $500; ' 25, $614.25 — are those less tangible gifts reflected from the lives of graduates like Stanley High. But that is another article, and we promised to be incomplete. Time for the giving of gifts is not past. We have as many resources as the students had who built the gymnasium with their own hands, as the students had who gave $10 each that Wesleyan might have a foot- ball field and a track; as the students had who so loved their " Chan Schreck " that they bought him a new car.

The newest Chancellor has been with us so short a time, yet already he brings his gift, the gift of an understanding heart, which asks: Have you found the soul of Wesleyan As you climbed her well-worn stairs, Where the Light of the World is shining And the Face of One Who cares Looks down from His beautiful window To counsel, guide, control? Oh there is the soul of Wesleyan, A shining, Christ-filled soul. Have you found the soul of Wesleyan Where the secrets of Science are shared, Where the tapers of truth are burning. And the fearless facts declared; Where you gasp as you glimpse new meanings As the marvelous records unroll? Yes, there is the soul of Wesleyan, A fearless, fact-finding soul. Have you found the soul of Wesleyan Out where the Plainsmen fight. Winning, and sometimes losing. No matter, they give their might. Their very life for a touchdown. Their last drop of blood for a goal? There you find the soul of Wesleyan, The Plainsman ' s invincible soul. Have you found the soul of Wesleyan When you hear the voice of song. Lifting the mighty choruses. Lusty, and loud and strong; Yet with a tender harmony Soothing you, making you whole? It IS the soul of Wesleyan, Her musical, mystical soul. Have you found the soul of Wesleyan Where the evening shadows fall. Where eternal vows are plighted While the sleepy night-birds call. And the hush of the vesper hour Envelops you like a stole? This too IS the soul of Wesleyan, Her sweet, romantic soul. Cod save the soul of Wesleyan Fearless, invincible, bold; Yet mystical, sweet as the night-wind That steals o ' er the sleeping world; We pledge you our faith eternal.

(6) The Student Prince " The Student Prince " , a light opera hy Sifc- mun i Romberf?. was presented this year at a total cost for costumes, sets, and royalties «if §500. Be inninK in 1933 with the pi-oduction of a light opera. " The Mikado " , the music department has presented five light operas antl one grand opera. " The Bartered Bride " by Fred rick Smetana in 1038. The creator of this musical tradition is Pro- fessor Oscar " Pop ' " Bennett, director of the school of music, voice teacher, and well-known choral director. The 110 students in the cast of this year ' s opera include ] special voice students, and members of the university mixed chorus and male a cappella chorus. Mrs. Clara Brandt, director of physical educa- tion for women, was in charge of costumes. Miss Wilhelmina Sprague directed the dances. The advertising manager was Miss Beryl Klahn, director of drama. Professor Enid Miller, head of the depai-tment of speech, directed the acting. Sets for the opera were designed by Miss Gladys Lux. head of the art department. She create l the elaborate scrim which made possible the showing of the memories of the Prince. The scrim was painted in an original design symbolic of the famous Gobelin tapestry. A screen was lowered in front of the scrim to reveal the figures which appeared in the vision of the Prince. Under the direction of Professor Bennett these separate items were woven together to make a musical protluction such as no other college or university in the state presents. This year ' s opera was termed the most professional produc- tion ever presented here. Above — Betty Weaver, Lexin- - ton sophomore, snlo ballet dancer.

Two tour highlights are broadcasts over Denver station KOA and Omaha station WOW. Prof. Oscar ' ' Pop " Bennett is responsible for mak- ing the chorus one of the finest in the middle west. Special features on the program are Geralyn Walrath Bennett, violin soloist, Delmar Xeutzman, reader, and the " Plainsman " and " Twenty-five Feet of Har- mony " (juartettes.

House interiors, activities of members, e eryday scenes, and glimpses of the winter formals, highlights of the social season, were chosen to illustrate the record of a characteristic year. Fraternity and sorority life at Wes- le an is democratic, and is inexpen- si e. House-mothers preside over the chapter houses and act as guide, men- tor, and friend of the members of the societies. The cost of living at a fra- ternity house as an active member, in eluding board, room, and dues for one school ' ear averages $236. Similar residence at a sororit ' averages about $262.

In the male a cappella chorus, 1 1 of 24 members are Delta Omega Phi songsters, as are all the members of the Plainsman quartet. Four of 12 players on the varsity basketball squad are Delts. The fraternity furnishes seven pre-med. students, five of whom are laboratory assistants in the biology and chemistry departments. Highlights of the organization ' s annual social events are a fall party at the chapter house, a winter dinner-dance, a six clock breakfast on the first of May, and a spring picnic out along some river wherein the boys gleefully throw any brother who has been so indiscreet as to an- nounce his engagement since the last picnic. Customs and traditions are exemplified by the Halloween celebration, unscheduled skirmishes over football dummies, and pledge duties such as counting the trees on the Wes- leyan campus. The Delt boys have a nice big radio, and rugs which are not nailed down. Founded more than 30 years ago as the Dialectics, and renamed in 1917, Delta Omega Phi, with its activity in all fields of college endeavor, whether it be scholarship, music, dramatics, or athletics, bears the title of ' ' diversifica- tion plus.

Willard has many traditions very dear to each girl. During the rushing season in the fall, the Rose Tea is not only remembered by Willards, but by all who attend. Each fall Willards set aside a day for honoring their parents. On this day the parents are honored at a dinner and taken to a Nebraska Wesleyan football game. The annual pledge party is always looked for- ward to in the second semester. After initiation in early March, the old May festival begins with an early morning hay-ride, followed by a breakfast at which the ideal Willard senior is crowned. The day closes with a formal dinner party in Omaha. The Willards are well represented on the Nebraska Wseleyan campus. The Willard house is the home for many band, glee club, chorus. Plainsmen Play- ers, Theta Alpha Phi, Yellers of Brown, debaters, Y. W. C. A. cabinet members, and verse choir mem- bers. Scholarship is always encouraged, and each year the girl who has the highest scholarship average has her name engraved on the membership cup. The Willards have many proud moments. This year we pledged 12 girls, bringing the chapter num- ber up to 30. We are proud of our Willard chapter, our Willard house-mother — Mrs. Sarah Chadderdon, and our distinction as the oldest local sorority in the U. S. A. Above — Tatty Whitney.

Th; French name, Hleu Thonge, and the colors, blue and sih ' cr, were chosen. In addition to the social aspects of the organization, it attempts to create a fine Wesleyan spirit by encouraging members to participate in e.xtra-curri- cular activities. This year Bleu Thonge has three Phi Kappa Phi members, six Pi ( " lamma Mu members, prominent debators and orators, and many other students who ha ' e brought hnnnr to ' (sleyan. lileu Thonge ' s traditions are the programs at each weekly meeting, the spring formal, anrl the spring picnic. These and several other parties dur- ing the year form the social calendar of the organization. Shortly after this school year began the Thongers went " peasant. " Then in March they changed to green in ord?r to celebrate St. Pat ' s day. All that is rec|uired for this fun is twenty-five cents a semester and a small assessment for each party. Supervised by Dr. E. Glenn Callen and Mrs. Dwight Thomas, Bleu Thonge continues to provide social activity for barb students.

Fond memories of that " spooky ' Halloween party, the annual Homecoming ban- quet in the candlelight, the Thanksgiving party, the Christmas party by firelight, the X ' alentine party given by the pledges for the actives, the formal party at Hotel Lincoln, the Pan-Hellenic tea, and the customary all-night parties before vacations with their accompanying all-night re- freshments. Then too. May brings observance of Founders Day, the Mothers Tea, and that never-to-be forgotten Senior breakfast in honor of the depart- ing girls and those who have decifled to take the fatal step. The Beta Phi Alphas exceed not only in party giving, for they are the only group on the campus permanently to hold a scholarship cup. Competitively speaking, the Omicron chapter won the first prize in homecoming house decora- tions. In addition each girl is in at least one extra-curricular acti ' ity.

Their pin is a combination of the Everett and Theta Phi Sigma pins. Fraternity colors are silver and blue. Traditions are numerous in the makeup of this fra- ternity. There ' s the Bear Dance, honoring a member when his engagement is announced. The annual Bowery Party is another. For this event the whole house goes " East Side " in atmosphere, even to the donning of striped sweaters, derbys, and patched trousers by the fellows and colored skirts and sweaters by the girls. For tips on how it ' s done see Schock, Jacobs, Lay, or Otto. Each Christmas the Crescents play Santa Claus to several under-privileged boys by giving them a turkey dinner and gifts. The Crescents are proud of the fact that members of their fraternity are in every department and are rep- resented in every type of extra-curricular activity on the campus. Typical e.xamples of whom Crescent is very proud are David Mickey in dramatics, Martin Brasch and Oliver Schock in the physics department, Wayne Stewart in forensics, and Charles Burroughs in football, basketball and track. Six others are in the male a cappella chorus. Crescents are also proud of Merle Mahr, Bill Walker, John Jones, and Darryl .Antrim. Why? — for announcing their engagements, of course. In looking back over the year. Crescents will not easily forget the " Nigger " scraps, the firecrackers at 3 a. m., the bull sessions till 5 a. m., or the fact that Brasch, Stewart, and James and their respective " better halves " never scrap.

Below — After the Peru game, the team traveled to Nebraska City before eating. This action shot caught Price, Burroughs. Staten on the left, an l Souders and Davis on the right overcoming the opposition. Wesleyan ' s star of victory was dimmed at the first of the 1939 season, shone brightly during mid-season, but dimmed again at the season ' s close. The Plainsmen had lost their first conference basketball crown in the last four years. The Thomasmen broke even in the N. C. A. C. con- ference with a .500 average, winning twice over York ' s Panthers, breaking even with Hastings ' Broncs and Mid- land ' s Warriors, and bowing twice to Doane ' s Tigers. In the N. I. A. A. the Plainsmen beat Wayne and Kearney on the Lincoln rectangle, but dropped contests to Peru and to Wayne and Kearney there. Wesleyan split with Omaha university and lost a thriller to . ug- ustana college. This season eleven Plainsmen won their varsity mono- gram. Three of these men, Xeil Davis, LaX ' aun Price, and Charles Burroughs, are seniors. Below — John Staten. Wesleyan ' s iron-man puard. jumps bucket as Peru took the Plainsmen ' s measure by 9 point;;. Xeil Davis, guard, four-year letterman and .Ml-Con- ference choice for three successive seasons, was noted especially for his consistent defensive play, while hisi ability to recover the ball from the bankboard and starij the play up the floor was top-notch. J Speed — this was the main factor in the performanc| l of Charles Burroughs, senior forward. His ability " I shoot accurately- while going at top speed won the spec- tator ' s admiration. La ' aun Price, senior center, deserves praise for his work under the bankboards of both baskets. " Lion " controlled the top the majoritN ' of the time, and used his height to an advantage for running up the Plainsmen ' s score. High scorer of the varsity squad — this is the dis- tinction Elbert Souders, forward, earned for himself. His shooting and ball-handling were his most praise worthy characteristics. John Staten, junior guard, was well known for his all-round defensive play. The dependable " Tiger " sparked many an encounter with his bulldog tenacity and scrap- piness. The surprise of the season was Merle Geis, freshman forward. -An opponent-worrier of high repute he dis- played uncanny ability at dropping long swishers through the hoop. Wilnier Woitemath. junior forward, and two-year letterman was steady, consistent, and cool. He was especially good on set-ups. The aggressiveness of Ronald Metzler, capable fresh- man center, and his work under the basket provided ex- citement for basketball fans and gave proof of a promis- ing athletic career. Harvey Feyerherm ' s defensive play dominated his performance. .A two-letterman, he developed into a guard of e.xceptional ability. Ted Boyd, aggressive freshman center, stood out as a player of commendable merit. Paul Johnson ' s work under the defensive basket ranked this junior as a guard capable of holding the opposing forwards in check. Much is expected of Don Williams, junior guard, although he failed to gain a varsity letter, having taken time out for the mumps. WkSI.EY.AN 35 AUGUSTAN.A 36. The Plainsmen in their season ' s opener dropped a thriller to . ugustana on the Plainsman court, 35-35. The lead changed hands eight times in the final half, with never more than three points separating the teams. With a minute left, the Plainsmen led, 35-34, but Augustana scored and ' esle ■an failed to retaliate. Augustana led 17-15 at the half. ' LaV aun Price led locals with 16 points. Charles Burroughs was nex t. Johnn - Staten and Xeil Davis shared honors at guard.

Reserves Winning eight out of 12 games, the W ' esleyan reserves not only had a success- ful season, but gained experience that will make them valuable to Coach Dwight Thomas in building future Wes- leyan teams. In college circles the re- serves spanked the York reserves twice -r during the season, and duplicated the feat against the Doane reserves. They bowed twice to the freshman team of Omaha university. The reserves added victories over the Hethany town team, and the East Lin- coln Christian and Union church teams. The ' dropped heart breakers by one-point margins to the Uni. Hotshots and the Havelock Zephyrs. Ralph " Rugs ' Bowmaster, flashy freshman forward, displayed aggressive- ness and ability to follow the ball. Va -ne Miller netted many points due to his excellent ability to follow-in shots, showing uncanny ability in recovering the ball from the bankboard. Kenneth Smith turned in a good defen- sive game from his backcourt position, while freshmen Morley Braye and Byror Johnson were also standouts on defense T.oren Dotson was prominent for his floor pla - and basket eye, while Dick Xor al ranked as a good all-around performer. Freshmen Duane Ketelhut and Buddy Guest furnished good reserve strength. ) •i!:-- Women ' s Athletics Above — ANNE KAIMMER. from Lethbridge. Alberta.

This year Nebraska Wesleyan W.. ..- . inau ' urated a new system of membership. Formerly, each girl earned the number of points required to become a member by participating; in intra-niural sports. Now, upon register- ing, a girl becomes an inactive member of the Wesleyan W.A.A. To become active each girl must take part in the present season of sports, or have participated in the previous season of sports. Only active members are allowed to -ote at meetings. Honorary membership is extended by invitation of the W.. .. . board. Officers for this year are: president, Frances Beach: vice-president, Ruth Hunt: recording secretary, Lorraine Borg : corresponding .secretary, Madge Voung : treasurer, Eleanor Coates: [nii)licity, Jeanne Souser : sponsor. .Mrs. Clara Brandt. W.. .. . conventions meet in cycles of three years; th state meeting one year, regional the next, and national the third. Dorothy Knight will represent Wesleyan at the national convention at Berkeley, Calif., . pril 7-16. Nebraska ' s second state convention meets next spring at Wesleyan, to which delegates will be invited from Chadron, Dana, Doane, Duchesne, Hastings, Kearney, Midland. Omaha university, Peru, University of Ne- braska, Wayne, York, Creighton university, and Union college. Convening for two days, the delegates will attend lectures, conferences, and discussion groups. ' esle an ' s W.. .. . sponsors intra-mural tournaments in volleyball, ping-pong, soccer, basketixiU in the fall and winter, archery and tennis in the spring. . sports trophy which becomes the permanent property of the group winning it three times is awarded to the tourna- ment winner. Next fall the W.. .. . will organize a co-recreation;il intra-mural program in which mixed teams will play in volleyball, badminton, ping-pong, and tennis tourna- ments. Ab( ve — The winter i:yn program include of Krace and posture. rhythm, folk dancinK. and exercises for the development Mrs. Clara Brandt (Brandt to the gym girls) is a favorite among the Nebraska ' esleyan coeds. She has won the faith and affection of many Wesleyan coeds, and in truth is a real, genuine, good sport. Mrs. Brandt has been associated with Nebraska Wesleyan university for 2i years. From 1916 to 1921 Mrs. Brandt, then Miss Clara Riesland, was connected with the ' an Fleet Training School. In 1921 she transferred to Wesleyan to head the department of physical education for women and has held that position ever since. In 1916 she received her . .B. degree from the University of Nebraska. During the summer of 1917-18 she attended the University of Chicago. Mrs. Brandt received her masters degree from the University of Nebraska in 1928. Tennis has always been the favorite sport of the spring schedule in women ' s intramural program. This spring over fifty girls in two classes are registered for the sport. Practice begins in mid-winter on four backboards in the university gym- nasium. This practice enables the co- eds to perfect their stroking and foot- work without fear of the weather. Each season the Women ' s .Athletic association sponsors an intramural tennis tournament in singles. .Approxi- mately seventy-five women participate in the tournament each year. This spring the W.A.A. is planning a mixed doubles tourney for men and women. Ah(tve — Tennis is offered on the spring sports program. Pictured left to right are .leanne Souser.

There are classes for beginners, intermediates, ad- vanced swimmers, and for tho.se working or) their junior and senior life-saving cer- liticates. ' esle_ an coeds are registered in each of the above classe.s. .Shoving comrades, working with stub- )orn locks, breaking shoe strings, loosing equipment, e.xhausted at roll call, and worn out after a water fight in the shower rtxim is only a glimpse of a gym class. True enthusiasm, however, is shown by coeds in each and every class, whether it be in basket, soccer, volley, or Nebraska ball, or in tennis, badminton, archery or ping-pong. Intramural for Girls Girls intramural tournaments are spon- sored by the W.A.A. organization. Volleyball, basketball, soccerball, ping- pong, archery, and tennis are the tour- nament sports. Sorority teams and an independent team compete each year. One hundred points are awarded the winning team in each sport, fifty points to the runner-up team, and twenty-five points to the team placing third. At the end of the intramural season the team winning the most points in the tourna- ment is awarded a trophy which is kept by that team until another team wins it. If the same team wins the trophy three times it becomes their permanent posses- sion. The last trophy awarded for per- manent possession was won by the .Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Last fall the W.A.A. purchased a new trophy which will be in circulation for the next few years. The Theta Upsilon sorority won the soccerball tournament last fall. At pres- ent the ping-pong and the basketball tournaments are in progress. Each fall the W.A.A. elects sports leaders to take charge of the various tournament sports. This year the follow- ing were elected as sport leaders : Elinor Soeth, basketball : Ruth Leach, soccer- ball ; V ernona Wilhite, ping-pong Eleanor Judy, archery: Dorothy Knight tennis; and .Alberta .Anderson, vollev- ball. 1, Chapman, Left— Four freshmen.

Separation from old friends, the forsaking of familiar habits and easy ways of the cloistered years, and the departure from accustomed haunts — all these have long and often been the theme of final editorials. This one is different. The differences? P ' irst, these years have not been greatly sheltered. Ten years of bitter depression have brought nearly all of us who attend Wesleyan to a degree of poverty and a facing of responsibility which is nearly commensurate with that e. perienced outside. Most of the few not so favored with knowledge of reality have parents who are. . ext — one regrets leaving Wesleyan, if for no more than the wrench of breaking familiar habits. To me, for two years a resident on the campus itself, that will be no slight change. Even so, the constant struggle, how- ever mild, the continual stress on world affairs, and one ' s growth, intellectual and in spirit, have made this a stage or phase which we are ready to leave, keeping in mind the values gained, like the nautilus which each year leaves its former cell, though retaining its integrity of structure. We, the seniors, have not iuiished, or secured " our education. That minority (not necessarily college students) who become educated men and women continu? to learn until the end of their mental lives. The Bachelors degree merely indicates that for four years you and I have battled the wolf, worked, borrowed, phenagled, and ' endured deprivation — have obeyed, worked for, and circumvented our teachers — made adjustments, good or otherwise, to the other students — and have secured enough honor points and hours of upper division credit to entitle us to a testimonial to that effect, solemnly signed by those in power. Nevertheless, it is to be cherished. . degree is a prerequisite to many jobs in these days, and means at least that one has some knowledge, some intellect, and is in some measure adjusted. Now. though the undergraduates may have quit reading this long ago, there is in this dissertation a message for them. Part of it concerns the Plainsman itself. It is, as college yearb(joks go, a good book. We, the editor and the publication staff, are proud enough of our work, and cognizant, more than others, of the inevitable shortcomings from the ideal. The prime function of an annual is to record, as equitably and interestingly as possible, the occurrences of the school year. The yearbook should strike a balance between sports, social activities, organizations, and events peculiar to the year, including scholastic activities. To this burden of appraisal the 193Q Plainsman has added the presentation of the departments of the school, in an endeavor to represent all of Wesleyan. Knsnared in the cross-currents of a transitional publicity program, the IMainsman may have occasionally not realized this ideal. That means just this: if your picture has not appeared in a striking half-page cut, that does not mean that you don ' t rate — if it has, don ' t be conceited, perhaps you are representative of a group, or a departmental activity. At all events, the Plainsman reflects the recent trenfl toward the consideration of college annuals as a part of the college ' s publicity, and not merely as memory books. This year, more than ordinarily, the Plainsman owes its composition to the etTorts and services of a good many persons. To Prof. Wendell L. Hoff- man, publicity director, perhaps more than to any other person, should go credit for the ' itality of the book. His ideas, planning, and photography have contributed tremendously to the annual. Most of the writing for the Plainsman was done by the journalism students, who comprise the staff of the school newspaper, the Wesle.van. Identified individually in the journalism section, I wish here to pay tribute to all of them. Dr. Hknjamin Schw.aktz h ' . A. Alabaster Oscar Bennett H. E.

Perhaps no other has been the recipient of such tribute more often than Professor Enid Miller, head of the speech department. The " Coyote " of 1929 was dedi- cated to her less than five years after she joined the Wesleyan faculty with these words : " Because you love Wes- leyan, because you have taught us to love Weslevan more — We dedicate this, our 1929 " Coyote " . The 1939 " PlainsDian " might carry the same words with equal meaning. For she does still love Wesleyan — she is still teaching us to love Wesleyan more. The " Plainsman " of 1935 which dubbed her " Kingmaker " in respect to her long list of oratorical cham- pionships, concludes with this : " . t i recent tournajiient in Iowa City, ,i debaters, whose instructor was one of Miss Miller ' s former students said to her, ' You know, I think you must be the greatest coach in the world. " And eight Wesleyan debaters sitting around the coach wholeheartedlv agreed. " In the October. 1932 issue of " Tri- S iield " . the official publication of Phi lu Gamma. .Allied .Arts fraternit -, is the following list of achievements: " Enid Miller. President of Student Council, Representative of Panhellenic Council, Zeta Scholarship, Varsity de- bate, loving cup which goes to the student who cf)ntributes most to the life and spirit of Northwestern, Delta Sigma Rho, Thelian, Pi Kappa Delta. Theta .Alpha Phi, Honor student and " Special Fellow in Speech " , Graduate School, University of Michigan, P. E. O.. and Phi Mu Gamma, of which she was once national president. It w as in 1930 that she began work on her Ph.D. degree at Michigan. She returned to .Ann .Arbor to resume this work in 1934. was elected to Phi Kappa Phi, and was nicknamed " Doc " by Wesleyan debaters — for to- tally different reasons. She has served as secretary-treasurer of the Nebraska Intercollegiate Forensic .Association, as Alanager of the Western Di ision of the Interstate Oratorical Association, as second ' ice-president of the Na- tional Speech .Association, and at pres- ent as Governor of the Province of the Platte of Pi Kappa Delta. Enid Millers competitive speech record is unrivalled b - any college or university in the United States. The forensic record this year is not unique but t_ pical of her fourteen years of championship coaching. The most prized possession of the Pi Kappa Delta squad is not the tro- phies which attest Nebraska .Alpha ' s supremacy- in both state and provin- cial tournaments — but a little soap- stone monke - standing two and i half inches high. Itch, the good luck mascot of Ne- braska .Alpha, has been a member of the forensic squad ever since Tat Bow- man, president of Pi Kappa Delta, enrolled at N. W. U. Bowman has never spoken a word without the help of Itch who has traveled 20,000 miles on the school in Bowman ' s coat pocket. But says Itch, " Don ' t think we ' re another Eddie Bergen-Charlie McCarthy combination — there ' s no dumm - on this team. " .And this was proved when Bowman set an all-time high for state and provincial cham- pionships by competing in six contests, winning five firsts and a second. However Bowman admits frankly that all honor is due to Itch. Faced with the tragedy of parting with Itch or of depriving the squad of this sym- bol of their esprit de corps. Bowman has once again made his contribution to the chapter, has left behind in Wesleyan ' s trophy case — Nebraska -Alpha ' s most prized possession. Next fall whan the forensic season op)ens, ' ayne Stewart, president-elect of Pi Kappa Delta and this year Bowman ' s championship colleague, will take Itch from among the silverware and put him once again in the coat pocket of a man who speaks for Wesleyan. From this habitat Itch will be treated generously to malted milks, coffee, alphabet soup — and whatever the squad can buy on six-bits a day. Bowman and Itch talked it all over and decided that his education should be continued. We record here- with the reminiscent reasoning which led to Bowman ' s decision to leave behind this good luck charm. BOW: But just think. Itch, you ' ll get to go to Vinfield, Kansas, St. Paul, .Minnesota, down south on the Jan- uary tour. Remember those South- ern gals? .And next year thev sav Kiftstn Nehriiska !-chimls competed for 13 stiite speech titles in March. Nebraska W ' esleyan won ninr titles; other schools won four.

Miss Butcher wrote an original radio drama featuring college life on the campus of Old Midwestern, centering in the office of the college newspaper. " The Rake " .

BEKYL KLAHN Director of Dramatics This year Miss Klahn has served the Plains- man Players in the triple capacity of director, technical director, and business manager. She ab o has classes in stape craft an l junior dra- matics. Miss Klahn received her A.B. from the University of Nebraska and has a master ' s de rree in dramatics from the University of MichiRan. Season Opener The 1938-39 season of the Plains- man Players opened with " All the Living " , Hardie .Mbright ' s dramatiza- tion of the book by X ' ictor Small, " I Knew .SOOO Lunatics " . This was the premiere performance of this re- cently released Broadway success by a Xeljraska group. The cast, with the director, Miss Beryl ' SI. Klahn, visited the State Hospital for Insane to ac- C|uire authentic atmosphere for this stark tragedy of the living dead. The large cast, headed by Bayard Taylor, Lincoln junior, Ross Mend?ll, Scotts- bluff junior, and Zella Wagers, Shick- ley senior, as hospital doctors and nurse, included several interesting characterizations of various types of mental disease. " Spring Dance " From the insane hospital to the college dormitory the Plainsman Players moved for the setting of the second play, " Spring Dance " , a light collegiate comedy by Phillip Barry. .And here was the season ' s innovation. The cast of " Spring Dance " was chosen entirely from new talent- freshmen or upperclassmen who had never appeared in a play at Wes- leyan — without competition from the experienced actors in Theta . lpha Phi, national honorary fraternity. The directors have agreed that the success of " Spring Dance " will make the new talent •how a [)ennant ' nl policy. Pictured left to riwht are David Mickey.

Lin- coln senior and president of Nebraska . lpha of Theta . lpha Phi, who has for five years taken leading parts in Plainsman Player productions, play- ing the title role. " Warren Hastings " was presented for the High School Day visitors, and their enthusiastic interest in the most serious drama of the season was gratifying. .Authen- ticity ke noted the set, and Lincoln missionaries donated articles from their East Indian collections. The student director of " Warren Hastings " was Margaret Thomson, who was born in Jabbul Paru, East India. " Enchanted Cottage " When Kenneth Frohardt, Atkinson junior, attended the Priscilla Beach School of Drama. Plymouth, Massa- chusetts, last summer, he understudied the part of Major Hillgrove in . rthur Pinero ' s fantasy, " Enchanted Cot- tage " , It was at his enthusiastic sug- gestion that the Plainsman Players chose this for the fourth play of the season. In it Mr. Frohardt played Oliver Bashforth. the crippled soldier, and Lloyd Pierce.

That was the year that Wesleyan ' s dramatic club received a charter for Nebraska .Alpha of Theta .Alpha Phi, national honorary dra- matics fraternity. It has been the policy of T.AP (local appellation) to make some dramatic innovation to account for each year of its existence. One year it was the brown velvet curtains for the audi- torium staj e : another year the Drama Shoppe staj e that was not the Drama Shoppe then, but Expression Hall.

KLV Professor of Economics and Business Administi ' ation Economics and Business Administration The department of economics and business administration was first or- ganized in the liberal arts college at Nebraska Wesleyan in 1928, and since then has shown steady growth and de ' elopment. The aims of the department are three-fold: To meet the needs of students who anticipate business careers. To enable students to earn ma- jors and minors in economics. To meet technical requirements of students who wish to prepare themselves for teaching commer- cial courses in high schools. 1. 3. Dr. Roy J. W. Ely, who came to Nebraska Wesleyan in 192b as an assistant professor, became professor of economics and business administra- tion, and head of the department in the fall of 1935. Dr. Ely ' s higher education includes two years at Peru, a quarter at the University of Minne- sota, and the equivalent of five years at the University of Nebraska. He received his B.S. in business admin- istration in 1924. his A.M. in 1925, and his Ph.D. in 1937 from the l " ni- versity of Nebraska. Dr. Ely instructs students in basic courses in economics and business ad- ministration. The courses are so arranged that specialization in certain fields, such as accounting, finance, and distribution, is open to the student. In the department. Miss Mamie Corns teaches commercial arts and beginning accounting, and Dr. E. Glenn Callen, head of the political science and sociology department, offers three economics courses. Since 1922, and including the class of 1939, according to Dr. Ely. 148 graduates have received . . B. de- grees with majors in economics, or bachelor of science degrees in business administration. Of this number, 62 will have received their bachelor of science degrees in business administra- tion by the end of the year. Dr. l Ay estimates that oO percent of the students who have majored in his department are in sales, finance, accounting and secretarial work, 25 ™ percent are teaching in high schools, and the remaining 15 jiercent of the students are in miscellaneous pursuits. Page 12 .Miss .Mamie Ellen Corns is assist- ant professor of economics and busi- ness administration. Coming to Ne- braska Wesleyan in 1929 to teach type- writing, shorthand and business En,;;- lish. she is now linishinu her tenth year in the department. Miss Corns , ()t her H.S. in edu- cation in 1929 from the University of . ebraska, her . ..M. in 1930 from ' the same institution, and at present she is doinji; graduate work there. Her department is ort anizei! to .i ive students instruction in some of the tool subjects as well as to train them in the fundamentals of business pro- cedure, and to give them a cultural understanding of the functions and importance of the business world. T pewritin2; and shorthand are tool subjects which enable young persons to find their places. In typewriting, form and correct placements, together with accuracy, are stressed. .Accounting gives training in or- ganization of business, administration of business, and interpretations of financial statements and planning. It lays a background for understand- ing many governmental agencies and their organization. Under the direc- tion of " illiers (lerd, laboratory assist- ant, stufients work out sets of the dif- ferent kinds of business organiza- tions. liusiness Elnglish constitutes a liroadening training in English, letter writing, and conversing. The im- portance of learning the many sources of information is stres.sed rather than the memorization of a great bulk of miscellaneous data. Practice teaching of t pewriting and shorthand supplies e.xperience for stu- dents who intend to teach commercial arts in high schools. Located on the top fioor of Old lain, the commercial department is afforded a beautiful view of the Wes- leyan campus. r MAMJK K ( (JI(, S Assi. t!uit J ' lnlis ijr ALove-l ' iulessur Kiy dictating a letter to Taeye Wilsun.

Art On the thirti fl(X)r of Old Main, at the extreme north end, is Ne- braska Wesleyan ' s art department where the student " artists " may be found on at least two afternoons a week. A visit to this department will re- veal a good exhibit of student work inclufiinif flrawings, paintings in sev- eral (lifferenl mediums, and work in design and the crafts. It is possible for a student to earn a minor in art at Wesleyan, courses being offered in design, lettering, public school art, drawing, water color painting, and art appreciation. Instructor in (h ' awing and design is Miss Gladys M. Lux, who received her A.M. degree from the University of Nebraska in 1935. IMiss Lux is nationally known in the field of art. She has exhibited in many shows including exhibits in the Joslyn Memorial at Omaha, the Art Institute at Kansas City, the American Woman ' s Shows at Mchita, the Art Institute at Denver, the American rainting Show at Chicago, and in each of the three national shows held al Rockefelirr center in Xew York City.

I lid buttons, woven coverlets and shawls — and craft work ranks hiijh also. The desi.sjninii; and making of hooked rugs and the making of cos- tumes for her dull collection arc among her interests. Miss Lux has done the sculpturing for the meat refrigeration exhiljit for th- State Fair each year. The art department cooperates with other activities of the school, serving them whenever possible. This year, among other projects, the art students made the posters used for High School day and did the lettering on the diplo- mas issued from the Teachers College. .Miss Lux designed the stage settings for the opera, " The Student Prince " , which was presented bv the School of Music.

GL ' SNN CALLEN Heail of the d3partment of Political Science and Sociology The study of political science anil sociology opens the doors to many in- terestin,s and varied careers. There is .government work with its multiplicit ' of opportunities for law majors, social workers, and social science majors. There are the fields of private prac- tice in civil, criminal, and corporation law : private social welfare agencies ; and for the teacher of the social sciences, the class room of public schools, colleges and uni ' ersities. There are also places for those in- terested in research, as it is becoming increasingly evident that there is ;t need for the " scientiiic method " in the study of the machinery- of govern- ments and the relationships of human beings. Nebraska ' esleyan students who aspire to any of these careers are re- ferred, at registration time, to E. CHenn Callen, head of this department. Mr, Callen graduated from Wesleyan with an . .B, degree in 1919; in 1929 secured his il.A., and in 1932 his Ph.D. from the University of Ne- braska. He has done graduate work at the I ' niversity of Wisconsin, and the Universit} ' of Chicago Law School. Dr. Callen is a member of Phi Kappa Phi ; a charter member of the Wesleyan chapter of Pi Kappa Delta : Pi Sigma . lpha, national political science society ; and is regional chan- cellor of the central region of Pi Clamma Mu. He is also a member of the executive committee of the Mid- west Sociological Society. Dr, Callen, who believes in making the practical application of knuwli ' dgc. is the state representative of the United States Department of Labor and the Federal Social Security Board, and as such is in charge of the merit examinations for the selection of per- sonnel in these departments for the state of Nebraska. Courses foi the student who is not majoring in this department, but which are valuable to any citizen, in- clude the basic courses in national and state government, and applied sociology. . 11 pre-law students are exposed to the art of case-reading and briefing, in the courses in constitu- tional law and social legislation. Pre- social work students are introduced to some of their future problems in such courses as public welfare and relief, and population problems. Much practical experience is provided for in volunteer work at Lincoln social agen- cies, and field trips for observation of social work in practice. Recent outstanding alumni of this department include Richard " Dick " Smith, ' i3. and James . ckerman, " 33, both of whom are graduates of Har- vard Law School and are now practic- ing attorneys in Lincoln ; Willard Het- zel, ' 34, graduate of the Michigan Law School and practicing attorney in Toledo, O. : Laverne Borg, ' 38 and Charlotte loorman, ' 37, both of whom are in the child welfare division of the Public .Assistance Department at Columbus: " Bob " Beers, ' 37, student at the Boston University School of Social ' ork : and Stanley Good, ' 37, who is head interviewer of the Chicago Relief . d ministration.

McPItOb ' D The Teachers college — that place in which ' " would be " teachers are changed to " teachers " to go forth to become competent instructors in this and in neighboring states. This year there are in the college, 61 candidates for teachers ' certificates. There are five departments in the Teachers college — a department of secondary education, a department of elementary education, a departmen t of physical education, a department of industrial arts, and a department of kindergarten-primary education. Dean of the college is Bertram Everett McProud, A.R. : A.M. ; and Ped. D. He did his undergraduate study at Baker university, and his graduate work at the University of Chicago and the University of Ne- braska. In additii ' n to being dean of the college, he is director of the uni- versity summer school, director of the teachers placement bureau, and pro- fessor of secondary education. For 13 years r)ean McProud has been chairman of the state board of examiners for colleges. He also served on the committee that drew up the classification and cjualifications for certification under the new state cer- tification law . To add to his crowded Teachers ' College schedule he is one of the educa- tional consultants to the educational policies commission of the National Education Association. But this busy professor finds mo- ments for relaxation, and it is then you can find him on the golf course, or at home working in his flower garden. Director of the Training school is Roy Walter Deal, A.B.; A.M.: Ph.D He instructs in both secondary and elementary education. Included in his work, too, is the giving of those tests which frighten the freshmen, for in addition to his training school duties, he is director of student personnel. Dr. Deal was elected head of the department of Psychology in Feb- ruary, 1939. He has always been much inter- ested in athletics, and has served on the Athletic board at Wesleyan for 20 years. He is faculty sponsor of Delta Omega Phi fraternity, finds time to work with boys and Boy Scout organizations, which along with woodwork, may be listed as his hobbies. The Training school is an interes t- J fc M ' ROY W. DEAL ing department of the Teachers col- lege. It is located in the ' an Fleet building and includes all grades from the first through the eighth. It is here that future t achers gain practical experience. Each candidate for a teacher ' s certificate must do at least one semester of practice teaching either in the Van Fleet training school or in one of the Lincoln high schools. Supervising teachers give advice and criticism of each student ' s work. The training school supervisors are Mrs. Elizabeth . rcherd, principal and critic teacher, seventh and eighth grade work ; Miss Amv Tyre, sixth grade : Miss Eleanor Swanson. fifth grade: Mrs. Zelia Wile -, third and fourth grades: Miss esta Keeton, second . ' rade ; and Miss Esther Barnes, in charge of the first grade. The Wesleyan training school has always received high recognition. This school has done pioneer work in both curriculum organization and teaching techniques. Realizing this, it was selected for listing in the Journal of the National Education Association as one of the three schools in Nebraska that are " schools of prophecy.

Since then critic teachers in this department have been Elizabeth Caldwell, Marian McLean. Xina Kenagy, Lillian Beach, and Faye Bonnell. From 192S to the present time, Ethel Walker Hatch has been in charge. There are il pupils enrolled this year. A tuition fee of SI. 50 per pupil a semester con- stitutes a fund for equipment. . s a result Wesleyan has one of the most progressive and best equipped kindergartens in the west. Pupils are taught to express their ideas by their own handwork. .An interesting project this year has been the building in miniature, of the ocean liner " President Lincoln. " the completion of which has required about two months time and much stud ' of ocean liners, their parts and construction.

E. gathers and disseminates knowl- edge of modern educational movements, pro- motes progressive types of education in nur- sery school, kindergarten, and primar - grades, and works to raise the standard of professional training in this field. Those who wish to become members must be interested in the kindergarten-primary de- partment, meet a minimum grade requirement, and be voted in by the group. One business and one social meeting is held each month. .At the beginning of this year freshman girls interested in kindergarten-primar_ - education were entertained at a tea. .At Christmas time a roup of underprivileged children were invited to the kindergarten to enjoy the Christmas tree. Each child was given a small gift and a lunch. On Msitors ' Day the Kindergarten held open house at which the .A. C. E. uirls served lunch. The proceeds of this lunch and of a chapel pro- i ram at which kindergarten children performed, were used to send Mrs. Hatch and three mem- bers to the National Convention in .Atlanta. Ceorgia. The year ' s social activities were ended by .i May breakfast at the home of the jiresident. Frances Beach.

' Page 20 « Industrial Arts Industrial Arts at Nebraska Wes- le a,ii consists of technical courses in industrial and vocational training taught in a large, well-lighted room equipped with machines anil benches arranged for complete and accurate ' work. Courses in fundamental job training include woodwork, metalwork. black- smithing, machine shop, woodturning and woodt ' inishing. Advanced courses in technical and advanced theory in- clude engineering drafting, descrip- tive geometry, architectural drawing, upholstery, millwork and practice teaching. Prof. Joe . . Parsons has had both practical and theoretical training at Pittsburg, Kansas, State Teachers ' college and at the University of Wis- consin. He has, in his department, a new modern office for consultation and lecture work with stuflents. Magazine stands, tables, wall shelves and racks, book troughs, end tables and writing desks are some of the most common articles made. Ex- amples of more specialized projects are metalwork (knives, jacks, ham- mers), a cedar chest made by a girl in summer school, and a c|uarter- sawed white oak writing desk worth at least $35 made last year. Specialized work this year has been done by Robert Schlichtenieier who, using the machine lathe, made at least 15 alabaster lamps in the form of miniature lighthouses ecjuipped with realistic rocky bases on which were carved small winding stairways. .J.

Alpha Gamma Beta The history of the Alpha ( " .amma Beta physics club dates back to 1908, when it was first organized as the W ' esleyan Camera Club. Since that time it has extended its field to cover the subject of physic in general. Election to the club is conducted on a merit basis. Thus the membership includes not only those majoring in physics, but also chemistry students, pre-medics, and others who have shown an interest in the field. Alpha Gamma Beta presents at its meetings, which are open to the pub- lic, interesting and instructive pro- grams which are pertinent to recent work and discoveries in physics. This year several students demonstrated before the club certain uni(|ue pieces of laboratory apparatus which they constructed in the physics depart- ment. The club also takes every possible opportunity to have visiting alumni tell of their work. Examples of these are Professor Roy X. Coslin, ' 28, of Alabama Polytechnic Insti- tute, who spoke before the club on " Magneto-Optical Method of Chem- ical . nalysis " and Mr. Robert Jensen, ' 33. control engineer with National Broadcasting Company, who explained the man - problems confronting the control eniiineer in a modern broad- casting station. Active members of Alpha Gamma Beta this vear are: Dr. J. C. Jensen, Gerald C ' arne, Ralph Clary, Dale Magnuson, Francis Breeden, Arthur Hosick, Eldon Brown, James Miles, Gerald Hicks, Oliver Schock, Marvin Magnuson, Martin Brasch, Dwight Hamilton, Marion Caruthers, Rober Schlichtemeier. and Marvin Feyer- herm. Those elected to membership thi year include : Claude Clements, John Groesser, Donald Trauger, Paul Mur ray, Warner Xelson.

MARTIN, pastor of First Methodist church, the university church. Philosophy, Bible, and Religion Professor of relif ion and philosophy, John Rosentrater came to Wesleyan in 19. 6 as head of the departmeiil of relis ion. Professor Rosentrater holds the deyree - A.Ii. from John I ' letcher ; A.M., Denver university: Th.M., Illiff ; has studied at two semi- naries in Chicago, and is completinii his doctor ' s thesis on the subject " In Def ense of John Laird ' s Theory of V ' ahies. " He is a member of Phi Kappa Phi, Pi Gamma Mu, and is sponsor of Student Christian Fellow- ship. His father a Nebraska pioneer, John Rosentrater spent his early years on a farm near Valparaiso. He served with the A.E.F. throughout United States ' participation in the World war, and secured all his graduate work after returning. Tall, gentle Professor Rosentrater presides over his classes with unfail- ing courtesy, seeking to guide students, trained in the experimentalism and empiricism of the times, through th: " alistract. tenuous rationalism of philo- sophical sNsttms, ancient and modern. His background of knowledge con- tributes vitality to study of the Bible, investing with life the stern Old Tes- tament characters and making their arduous history intelligible. In the study of religions of mankind Pro- fessor Rt)sentrater aids the student to make an enlightened appraisal of the values of Christianity after view- ing the principles of the other great world religions. " I ' hiloMiphx ' is the cndcaNor t(j trace ail llif phenomena of human existence to as few bases as possible, even on " or two. " — Professor John Rosentrater. .n a sense philosophy may be th;- record of humanity ' s effort to give place to these higher human values among other things, ' oung persons who find the heart of the ideas pro- posed in philosophy- come to have a larger viewpoint and a new way ol seeing things. Philo. ' -ophy acc|uaints the studen: with the deeper problems of life and suggests methods for solution. Seri- ous thinking upon life tends to aid young people in attaining these cer- tainties characterizing good living. It endeavors to tind a basis for good conduct beyond the mere following of the custom, basing reason for good living on the nature of the universe. One is enabled to live with the great thinkers of the ages and to learn much from them without losing in- terest in society and fellowmen. Today at Nebraska Wesleyan, thes- things are presented in such courses as Introduction to Philosophy, Intr i- duction to Reflective Thinking, Prob- lems of Right Conduct, History of Philosophy, and Philosophy of Re- ligion. The Bible, more than any other iiody of literature, gives definite light on the significance of human values. The Bible is made to live, and the profound meanings hidden in its often cryptic sentences are illustraterl with claril and understanding. It i the record of the great experiences of one of the world ' s most religious people, the Hebrews, and it is a portrait of Jesus recognizefl the world over as the most unique personality to be found among men. The Heljrews are shown as a living, struggling nation, beset by e ils which exist even today, a nd the story of their vicissitudes is made i ifl from their early history to the beginnings of the present day. The l!il le is studied by means of these courses : Hebrew Life and Literature : Prophets and Our Day; Life and Teachings of Jesus; and Life and Writings of Paul. In the histories of the religions are found some of the best thinkers, some of whom have offered examples for li ' ing. Christianity is one of the youngest religions, but it has a great record. The purpose of this department is t(. give the student an understanding of the background upon which the Church was founded. The facts which condition the human being are im- portant. They indicate what humans should undertake and what they should leave. Expectations and hopes which occur in human experience give rise to the idea of values which are significant but beyond immediate realization. Philosop hy and religion are concerned with these values as they seek to justify human hopes and suggest methods for attaining them. KAPl ' A CHI First row — .James Irwin. Rich;ii l Ricker.

' » ,Ou t-rrJU-,, The Stufieiit Christian Fellowship, organized in 1936-37, developed from action taken to rebuild and inject new life into a ministerial student group known as the Oxford Fellow- ship. This earlier organization had been limited by constitution to men planning for the active ministry. The Oxford Fellowship, while serving its members to a fair degree, was lack- ing in enthusiasm and vitality. To break the spell of lassitude hanging over the club, young women planning for Christian service and the wives of those student ministers who were married were admitted to associate membership, without voting power. Dissatisfied with this, a committee was selected to study complete reorganization. That com- mittee eventually read and recom- mended a new constitution and it was adopted. With the adoption of the new con- stitution, the Oxford Fellowship dis- solved and the Student Christian Fellowship took its place. The pur- pose of the Fellowship is to be found in the pledge of membership and any student desiring to sign th? pledge is eligible to join. The group elected as sponsor, the head of the department of Religion and Hible. Professor John Rosentrater. Weekly worship and devotional meetings, under the direction of the program chairman, Elsie Steinhausen, are held in " the upper room " , on the fourth floor of White building. Under the chairmanship of Rachel Stephen- son, the social service committee provides Sunday school, league, and choir leaders for several small churches near A ' esleyan : organizes student and home visitation groups ; and furnishes two gospel teams for churches and other religious institutions, this latter service being the most popular. Each spring the Fellowship holds an all day retreat in the excellent Y. M. C. A. camp grounds, at Crete, Ne- braska. This year, under a new name, the " advance " , the group met on May 20, general plans being in charge of Max Kemling. The Matin services, something new on the campus, were held on the last seven school days before Easter, at 7:25 . . M. A joint committee of Fellowship members. Kappa Chi, and Chancellor Schwartz dire cted the ser- vicer and an a ' erage of more than one hundred attended each morning. The cabinet of the Fellowship includes the chairmen named above and the following: president, Jane_ ' Bray; vice-president. Wilma Lyon; secre- tary, Ruthadel Fulton; and treasurer, X ' illiers Gerd. The student pastors have recently set up an informal organization. Kappa Chi, directed by a very brief constitution, one of three known simi- lar groups in the coimtrw Only those persons holding studetu pastor ap- pointments are eligible.

Rarrins er. In his education Dr. Harrinser fol- lowed the teachers ' tradition. He was graduated from the Indiana Xormal school in 1908. and after teachinsj; for several years, he attended the In- diana State universitw recei ' inL; his A.B. and . .M. in ' l918 and 1919 respect ivel -. While he was workinii on his degrees he was assistant pro- fessor in history. Dr. Barringer re- ceived his Ph.D. from the same uni- versity in 1927. In addition to writ- ing his thesis, he did extension teach- ing at the universit - and taught his- tory in the summer school session. Of his 15 years of pui lic school teach- ing, twelve of them have been as superintendent. Dr. Harringer has been at Wesleyan 15 years as head of the history department. Dr. Harringer is a member of the Mississippi " alle ' Historical associa- tion, a member and past president of the Nebraska .State History Teachers association, is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Pi Gamma Mu, and is faculty sponsor of Crescent fraternity. Oh, _ es. he has some hobbies too. When asked about them. Dr. Bar- ringer said, " 1 play golf with a spad- ing fork. " From this, one can infer that he likes to garden. His special- lies are tulips and asters. He likes to fish, too, and since there is not much fishing around here, he occasionally goes to Minnesota, . nother favorite pastime which could easily be called a hobby is his dissertations on In- diana. For Dr. Harringer the song should be, " There is no place like In- diana. " In his teaching schedule. Dr. Bar- riniier ives three regular urve}- courses. They are world civilization, modern Kurope, and survey of the I ' nited States, all of which are for one year. Specialized courses are alter- nated in such a manner that the stu- dent is able to get a number of dif- ferent ones durinii the four year-. . mong these are full-year courses in Fnglish history and history of . mer- ican diplomacN . One-semester spec- ialized classes include history of the old South, World War and Recon- struction, history of the .American Frontier, Medieval history, and Ren- aissance and the Reformation. The aims of the department are to make history a cultural subject for the general student: to try to reach special groups such as prospective teachers, pre-law students, and Eng- lish majors ; and to integrate the work with that of the other social sciences. Dr. Barringer ' s teaching hobby is the study of diplomacy and foreign relations. . s an outgrowth of this, he is the sponsor of the local Inter national Relations club. Each year the club receives from 12 to 15 ex- cellent volumes dealing with the vari- ous aspects of the international field. These books are from th e Carnegie endowment. To aid the student in organizing and clarifying his work, two assist- ants in the department hold regular quiz sections with small groups of students. These conferences serve the same purpo.se as the laboratory per- iofls in the physical sciences. " Wesleyan has an excellent histo- rical library, particularly in the field of the Renaissance and Reformation, the French Revolution, and American historv, " states Dr. Barringer. i GRAHAM A.

Howie has been head of the mathematics department at Nebraska Wesleyan for the past 15 years. He was head of the mathe- matics department at Peru state teachers college for 24 ears before coming here in 1924. Professor Howie ' s previous teaching experience includes teaching in the country and in high schools, in a prix-ate normal school at Hloomfield. la., in two state universities, three state teachers colleges, and three de- nominational colleges. Professor Howie was graduated from high school at the age of lo, and he was later graduated from Southern Iowa Normal at Bloom- field, la. He received his A.B. de- gree from Cotner university, his M.A. degree from University of Nebraska, another M.A. from Columbia univer- sity, and honorary Ed.D. degree from Cotner. At the present time he has more than enough credits for a Ph.D. degree. Howie is an excellent pen- man, being skilled in the Spencerian method. Professor Howie instructs Harold Pickerinp: electric calculating machine. the use of the Professor Howie has done graduate work at the University of Wisconsin, Columbia university, and University of Nebraska. His name appears in ■Who ' s Who in Men of Science " : he is a memJDer of Phi Kappa Phi, Pi Mu Epsilon, Phi Delta Kappa, Triple A of Science, Central Association of Science and Mathematics teachers. He is also a member of the National Council of teachers of mathematics, and a char- ter member of the Mathematical Asso- ciation of America. For many years he has been a member of the Na- tional Educational Association, the Nebraska State Teachers -Association, and the Nebraska Academy of Science. He was one of the organizers and the first president of the Nebraska .Ath- letic association. Mathematics is used in biology, in religion, agriculture, chemistry, phar- macy, in statistics, physics, and man_ other fields. The mathematics df- partment here offers the following courses as a foundation of the appli- cation for these various scientific fields: college algebra, college geom- etry, solid geometry, spherical trig- onometry and solid analytic geom- etry, trigonometry, analytic geometry, differential calculus, integral calculus, theory of equations, advanced calcu- lus, differential ec|uations, and mathe- matics of investment. In connection with this department Professor Howie has in his possession a S400 electric automatic calculating machine, the only one of its kind on the campus. The machine multiplies, subtracts, divides, takes the square root of numbers, and various combi- nations. It is used in the mathematics of in -estment course, for figuring scholarship ratings, and many other things. He also has an extensive mathematical library, which contains several mathematical books two and ihree hundrefl X ' ears old. Page 28 " Wesleyan " editors in session on a busy afternoon.

It was or,t;anize(i in a small third floor room in Main buildinsi with Miss Abbie Hums, former Wesleyan instructor in (ierman. as its first president. Since then it has become an in fiuential organization for women on the campus, and the present Y. V. room with its facilities for rest, friendly contacts, and information has become a common meeting place for members and friends. Activities for this year began with a Friend- ship tea, the first Sunday of the school year, for freshman girls. The traditional memljer- ship banquet and candlelight service were given at Urst Methodist church on October l.v The day before Thanksgiving vacation brought a Thanksgiving vesper service in charge of the worship commission. Christmas time found Janey Bray and her commission buying gifts for the bo s of .Mothers ' Jewels home at " S ' ork.

With the purpose of promoting the intellectual, moral, and reliijious welfare of youn.ii men en- rolled at Nebraska W ' esleyan, the Youn,i Men ' s Christian Association started off the year ' s acti- vities with an All-Wesleyan mixer in the gym in cooperation with the Y. W. C. A. Next, a membership drive headed by James Tipton and Warren Johnston was staged, culminating in a membership banciuet in the Wesleyan cafeteria. Another event was the annual stag held at the city Y. M. C. A. where approximately 75 men enjoyed the recreational facilities. Publi- cation of the Student Handbook, sponsored by Y. M., occurred early in the school year. Vance James was editor and Darrell Randall business manager. Carl Christeps?n, Olan Terrell and Lloyd Mullis attended the Wayne training conference in March, and in April a Wesleyan delegation went to Crete for the spring stag retreat. On various occasions, the Y. M. and Y. W. sold refreshments to raise money for the Estcs Park conference. The Y. M. will send at least one delegate to the conference which lasts from June 9 to 19. The Y. ] I. room, haven for weary students, is provided with facilities for study, rest, and recreation. The clink of ping pong paddles, the buzz of someone snatching a few minutes of sleep, or the rustle of the pages of " Life " , " Time " , or " Readers ' Digest " can frequently be heard. Throughout the ear the organization ' s meet- ings were sponsored by four commission groups which dealt with _ ()uth and its problems. Yanre James, Harold Secund, . 1 Croft, and George Beebe headed the groups which provided speakers. Coach Dwight P. Thomas, Prof. J. A. Par- sons and Dr. Roy J. W. Ely have been this year ' s sponsors. Striving for physical fitness, mental train- ing, religious idealism, social fellowship, eco- nomic and vocational guidance, and a balanced personality, the Y. yi. C. A. has a definite duty to fulfill, and is an important factor in character building on the Nebraska ' esleyan campus.

His final efforts as a Plainsman also netted him another first in his lontj list of half-mile victories. Kyle also ran in a dead heat with his brother, Merle, for second in the 440 yard sprint before assisting; in the relay. Merle Randall was the outstandinsi; runner of the meet.

Again the Plainsmen scored heavily in the dashes and distances, but failed to present suft ' icient field strength to cope with the well-balanced teams of first-place Hastings and second-place York. Wes- levan ran third, comini; within two points of York. The Randalls were brilliant factors for the home crew, winning four firsts between them and supporting the undefeated relay team. James turned in two strong thirds in the 100-yard dash and furlong; Hartley the same in the 440; and Panzer came in fourth in the mile. Coach Thomas varied things a bit in this meet, K le Randall winning in the century and the 880 and Merle in the 220 and the 440. He also ran Staten.

Souders disposed of his rival, and Keith came through in three sets to down his man. The Plainsmen set out for York on the first of May for a conference match. The ' emerged with their second victory, defeating the Panthers. 4-2. Both doubles teams came through and the singles division split. Powell and Souders won the singles as Luke had an easy time while Souders waited out his man and won in straight sets. The doubles affair between Geis-Keith and Thomason-Marvel was a thriller, the Thomasmen copping the lirst set, 7-5. and the second, 6-3. After a rest of a day, the Methodists were on the road again, heading for Fremont this time after their third circuit victory. Hitting their stride, they walked all over the Midland crew, blanking them 6-0 for their third straight victory. Every one of the Wesleyan netters went full tilt in vanquishing the Warriors, Powell, Souders, Keith, and Geis all handling their rivals easily. The DeFreese brothers offered the stiffest competition for the losers, but the high-riding Plainsmen weren ' t to lie stopped. The next da_ ' the tennis team journeyed to Tar- kio with the track team. The netters, minus the ser- vices of Powell, ran into their second loss of the season as the Missourians laced them up, 4-2. Souders and Keith scored the lone wins for the home crew, both winning their singles matches. Geis put up a battle in losing his single play, pushing his rival to three sets ; while Metzler lost in straight sets. Th ' - Owls swept the doubles division. (Continued on next pape) Tennis Luther Powell climaxed a most successful four years tennis competition at Nebraska ' esleyan when he won clear title to the N.C.A.C. singles champion- ship on the Midland college courts Saturday, May 20. Powell eliminated his own doubles mate. Filbert Souders, in the finest match of thL tournament by scores of 7-5, 4-6, 6-1. Both finalists swept through their opposition in reaching their play-off. In the doubles division, lidland ' s netmen registered an upset when they tipped over the favored Yellow and Brown pair, Bruce Keith and Merle Geis. by a slim margin in two sets. The doubles team of Hastings later trimmed Midland to win that division. The matches ended the season for the Plainsmen, who went through a tv iical successful Wesleyan campaign. April 21 the first home match was played as a touring Kan.sa: ' State team invaded Lincoln for Wes- leyan ' s first competition. The victory went to the Staters by a 5-1 margin as th? Plainsmen showed rustiness du? to lack of outdoor practice. Luther Powell, No. 1 man of the home crew for the last three years, and Elbert Souders teamed up in the doubles to score the only Wesleyan victory after the men from Manhattan had swept the simrles. The netters hit the road for Hastings a week later for their first N.C.- .C. competition. They marked down their initial win, 4-2, as Powell, .Souder.

Wesleyan ' s doubles teams captured their matches, both pairs needing three sets to win. After a days rest, the men from Wesleyan again played host to a con- ference rival as the ' performed in a return match with " ork college in Lincoln. They racked up conference win Xo. 5 in nearly blanking th ' ' { ' anther ' s by a 5-1 margin. With the exception of .Met .ler. who was once more playing lu fourth man in th ' - absence of I ' owell. every Plainsman swept his singles match, then com- bined to mon( | )li .e the doubles as Powell arrived in lime to pair U|) with .Souders ; Keith and Geis forming the other team. The Wesleyan crew set out for a two-da road trip, Friday, May 12. with Washburn college and a return affair with Kansas State slated. The (|uartet, Powell, Souders. Keith, and (leis. lost heavily to the Kansans. 5-!, as Powell registered the only singles victory, Luke beat (ireen. a former Creighton prep tennis standout, need- ing ' three sets lo turn tlie trick. The rc t of the da was all Washburn ' s as they . wept through Wesleyan ' s forces, grabbing the remaining singles and sweei)ing the doubles. The .Xcbraskans arriving in Man- hattan Saturda -, went into their matches decidedly weary. This was evidenced as the ' i!dcats blanked the Plainsmen ()-0, the first such score for the Thomasmen in several seasons. Powell, though suffering one of his rare singles defeats, put up a game battle as did Souders , Keith, and (;eis. The doubles went the same way as the strong Big Six squad won, though Powell and So iders pushed the winners to three long sets before bowing.

Men who majored in physics at Nebraska Wesleyan arc now connected with great univer- sities, with industrial establishments, with engineering projects, w ' ith broad- casting companies, and with work in the public schools. By a system of alternation of courses, the student finds it possible to obtain a total of 35 hours in phy- sics in the four-year course. Thest ' include advanced work in electricity, optics, and mechanics, as well as specialized courses in photograph)-, radio, and meteorology. Students majoring in physics are also required to obtain a strong minor in mathe- matics and are urged to branch out into chemistry, biology, foreign lan- guages and English so far as time per- mits. Nebraska Wesleyan and the depart- ment of physics were especially hon- ored when Dr. J. R. Dunning, ' 29, was recently given recognition i)y " Life " magazine in the form of two half- page illustrations describing Dun- ning ' s work in helping smash the uranium atom.

Anyway, the ed. made me write this the last minute and I ' m plenty sore, so this will be sort of Pan-Hellenic type of column ; if you uet it.

And just look at the whole Plainsman this year. Not a joke or a humorous line in it that was written inten- tionally. Look at most of the cut lines — dry, matter-of-fact thin.! s, not a lau. h in a carload. (Guess that II fix him). And it ain ' t true, because W ' esleyan is full of humor, each prof, has his own brand, from the canned joke wariety to the razzint; in class. And the school is the home of the pun, even thi that is the lowest form of humor. And even at the Plii Kappa Phi banquet they tell jokes. So I think W ' esleyan was misrepre- sented by leaving out the humor, don ' t -ou? Well, this is enough for the column, g uess I ' ll go back and put the curlers on and just relax.

Social Life Two of the most popular students at the Plainsman university elected by popular vote of the student body are the " Big Snob " and " Old Grouch " . These complimentary derogatory titles typify a demo- cratic campus social life centering in a series of all-university parties in the gymnasium, the campus party room, or the foyer of the university libr.nry. More personal relationships are developed in the variegated pattern of everyday work and weekend play of the fraternity and sorority home. Here students may entertain their " dates " ; have fire- side parties; and take part in the more elaborate functions of group life, climaxed in the mid-winter formal season. Then men and women in tuxedoes and formal party dresses entertain at downtown hotels and theaters. Fraternity and sorority life at Wesleyan in your choice of high ranking national or local organizations is insxpensive. Housemothers preside over the chapter houses and act as guide, mentor, and friend of the members.

Domestic Interlude Going to college on a small margin is not only possible but it ' s what the honor roll students and campus leaders are doing every day. They spend $150 for tuition: $108 for room and board; $17 for books; and $25 for clothes. They earn money by working in offices, and save it by being their own housemothers. They may further re- duce the expenses with scholarships. CHANCES TYPEWRITERS For the girl who types her way through college, Jean Schrunk, of Lynch, there are no office hours. She merely changes typewriters from one at the desk of Dr. E. Glenn Callen, head of the political science department, to the one on her study table. Beautifully lacquered nails are an essential to the coed business girl. Wilmetta Stake, Burchard, who types for John Brox, supervisor of grounds and buildings, finds time in a busy day to beautify hers.

The boys in their traditional uniforms, a brown sweater with the yellow Plainsman monogram and the light-green trousers, travel in a chartered Bur- lington bus with Dr. A. V. Hunter furnishing a free supply of gum, oranges, and candy to keep throats moist and hunger satisfied. Meals and lodging are furnished !) ■ the university. The concert traditionally opens with an entrance song, which this year was " Strike Up the Hand ' by George Gershwin, and closes with sacred numbers, sung under candlelight. Two tour highlights were broadcasts over Denver station K0. and Omaha station WOW. Prof. Oscar " Pop " Bennett is responsible for mak- ing the chorus one of the finest in the middle west. Special features on the program are Geralyn Walrath Bennett, violin soloist, Delmar Xeutzman, reader, and the " Plainsman " and " Twenty-five Feet of Har- mony " quartettes. The Wesleyan girls ' glee club, directed this year by Mr. A. L. Boberg, had as its high point a week ' s engagement at the Stuart theater where Christmas songs were sung between shows at 9 p. m. The girls also broadcast over Lincoln radio stations KFOR and KFAB.

She also studied with Richard Czerwonky, teacher, composer, violinist, now a professor at DePaul. String music at Nebraska Wesleyan has its foundation in a Id piece ensemble which meets once each week for a two hour period. Each season the ensemble plays two concerts away from the campus, and one concert on the campus. The music played in- cludes concertos for string groups, transcriptions of movements from SN ' mphonies. and smaller pieces from classic composers such as Bach, Corelli, and the modern composers. Mrs. Bennett ' s private students form trios which appear at teas, luncheons, and meetings in Lincoln, and give an average of one performance each week during the school year. Majors in violin take two half-hour lessons per week, in con- junction with the regular courses in music, and are prepared upon graduation to teach in state high schools. - public recital is one of the requirements for completion of major work.

McProud, chairman of the Nebraska State Board of Examiners for Colleges, the Wesleyan Training School was the first in the state to be organized on the Mastery plan of leaching. Achievemants under the plan have been striking; a pupil in grade " 2B " has read 67 books in five months; the first semester average for reading of books in free periods is 25: during a six weeks ' period sixth grade children read more than 500 pages of material for a single geography or history unit; eighth grade children have read more than 1,000 pages of material during a similar period. TEACHERS COLLEGE STAFF Ten full-time professors and instructors are employed in the Nebraska Wesleyan University Teachers College, giving their time to professional courses in Teacher Training. There are also three part-time teachers. No other church-related college in the West maintains such a teacher-training staff. The Teachers College enjoys the superior ad- vantage of a broad cultural background because of the unique fact that its academic work is carried on within the College of Liberal Arts. Teachers College students have access to all courses in the College of Liberal Arts and the School of Fine Arts. 24 m iM 11% ffi» iiihfc««ectataaii»i»fct « INDUSTRIAL ARTS The 08 by 30 foot shop, one corner of which is shown above, is fully and modernly equipped with a dustproof finishing room with paint and brush units, a handy well stocked lumber and supply room, and a private office for study and student consultation.

PARSONS Department Head KINDERGARTEN-PRIMARY DEPARTMENT ETHEL WALKER HATCH Department Head Kindergarten- Primaiy students teach two semesters, one in the kindergarten and one in the first or second grade. Thus the student has an opportunit_ - to work w-ith two supervisors and gain practical knowledge of teaching techniques in both fields. Studies are made of modern trends in kindergarten work a,s found in recent textbooks and in Childhood Education, official magazine of The . ssociation for Childhood Education. Students have access to the richest and newest children ' s literature at the Lincoln Juvenile Library. Interest in the small child leads to many fields. With a background laid in the Wesleyan Kindergarten, 169 graduates have held positions in the U. S. Civil Service, children ' s libraries, and hospitals, as well as teaching positions in the largest cities of Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming, Colorado, and New York. The Kindergarten Primary diploma which is issued at the end of the second year entitles the owner to teach in all accredited schools of Nebraska, including large city schools.

The event shot will be the Columbia round (24 arrows at each of the distances .50 yards, 40 yards, and CO yards). This is one of the official rounds for women. The r suits of the tournament will be telegraphed to Boston, Mass., by May 22. Archers with scores over 425 will be listed in Class A : 3.i0 to 424 points. Class B ; and 300 to 349 points in Class C. X ' ebraska Wesleyan A ' omen ' s Athletic association was organized in 1915 under the sponsorship of Mrs. Clara Brandt, who has continued as sponsor to the present time. This year Nebraska Wesleyan W.A.A. inaugurated a new system of membership. Formerly each girl earned the number of points re(|uired to become a member by participating in intra-mural sports. Now, upon register- ing, a girl becomes an inactive member of the Wesleyan W.A.A. To become active each girl must take part in the current season of sports, or have participated in the previous season of sports. Only active members are allowed to vote at meetings. Honorary membership is extended by invitation of the W.A.. . board. Officers for this year are president, I- " rances licach ; vice-president, Ruth Hunt: recording secretary, Lorraine Horg ; corresponding secretary ' , Madge Young; treasurer, Eleanor ( " oates; publicity, Jeanne Souser ; sponsor, Mrs. Clara Hrandt. W.A.A. conventions meet in cycles of three years; the state meeting one year, regional the next, and national the third. Doroth}- Knight represented Wesleyan at the national convention at Berkeley, Calif., . pril 7- Id. Nebraska ' s second state convention met this spring at Wesleyan, to which de ' egates were invited from Chadron, Dana, Doane, Duchesne, Hastings, Kearney, Midland, Omaha universit -, Peru, University of Ne- braska, Wayne, York, Creighton university, and I ' nion college. Convening for two days, the delegates attended lectures, conferences, and discussion groups. Wesleyan ' s W..- ..A. sponsors intra-mural tournaments in -olley ball, ping-pong, soccer, and basketball in the fall and winter, archery and tennis in the spring. . sports trophy which liecomes the permanent propert y of the group winning it three times is awarded to the tourna- ment winner. Next fall the W.. .. . will organize a co-recreation;il intra-mural program in which mixed teams will play in volleyball. b,-idniinton, ping-pong, and tennis tourna- ments. Above — The winter jaryni program includes rhythm, folk dancing, and exercises for the development of grace and posture. Everywhere today public moneys are being conserved. Expendi- tures for education are being closely scrutinized; the taxpayer is de- manding more value for less mon:y. ' hatevcr the wisdom of this policy, the immediate effect should be to stimulate teachers to meet the emergency. More teachers should plan to combine the teaching of Physical Education with other subjects. So many teachers in smaller schools are literally thrust into the gymnasium and told to take charge, with so little preparation for the work that they are en- tirely at a loss. Their immediate need is for familiarity with Physical Education activities and methods of teaching. A variety of courses helpful to them are listed in the 1939-1940 ' esle ' an Catalogue. In all courses problems of economy and operation on reduced budget will be considered. CLARA BRANDT Department Head Tennis has always been the favorite sport of the spring schedule in women ' s intramural program. This spring over SO girls in two classes are registered for the sport. Practice begins in mirl-winter on four backboards in the university gym- nasium. This practice enables the co- eds to perfect their stroking and foot- work without fear of the weather. Each season the Women ' s Athletic association sponsors an intramural tennis tournament in singles. .Approxi- mately 75 women participate in the tournament each year. This spring the V.A.. . held a mixed doubles t( urne - for men and women. 29 Above — Tennis is olTered are Jeanne Soueer, Clarks ; Kulh Ellis, Chester. m the spring sports program.

One hundred points are awarded the winning team in each sport, SO points to the runner-up team, and 25 points to the team placing third. Ai the end of the intramural season the team winning the most points in the tourna- ment is awarded a trophy which is kept by that team until another team wins it.
