The good reference material and the atmos- phere of study make it a popular place for students when they study. C. C. White can always be identified by the music that comes from its numerous practice rooms. A few improvements were made on the outsideg the large chapel was redecorated, and a new lighting system was installed during the summer months. In addition to the offices of the fine arts departments, C. Ct White houses the Student Union, Huntington Hall, and the Christian Association headquarters. Page eight just east of the new speech building is the Van Fleet Science Building, an old landmark of the Wesleyan campus. It houses the offices, classrooms, and lab- oratories of the physics and chemistry depart- A ments. The college church and place of worship of the majority of Nebraska Wesleyan students is the First Methodist Church across from the campus. It has become a part of the life of the college with many of the students active in the choir, Sunday School Department, and the MYF. ,tp .nu- Page nine ,. ,, ,..,... .. .A W. Once again Wesleyan cheers and songs rang throughout the new O. N. Magee Memorial Stadium, which was officially dedicated in the fall of '46. The finishing touches have been completed, making this new building one of which we can right- fully be proud. The gymnasium has been the scene of many an exciting basketball game. Physical education classes are held in the gym, and there is equipment for various indoor activities. The offices of the physical education instructors are also located here. Page ten T' The johnson Wornen's Residence Hall, one of the largest buildings on the cam pus, stands stately and tall on the northeast corner of the campus. One hun- dred EVE freshmen girls moved into the hall at the end of the first semester. Located a few steps south of Old Main is our new speech building. Construction of it was begun in the spring and completed in time for the ' if jgefsigwiigwwwWM formal opening on Dec. ll. Its comple- fzfjfl' tion marked another step in the building program for our ex- K 1 panding campus. 4 , :Eff-gt-Eiiifr-If34.:-Ali-' -T i me-.et-:xt-.-,-.1-Q-,-.1 , ....- 13 lr : -,.L,:...'..4-AT -T im., .

The smokestack, along with the rebuilt and enlarged heating unit L and campus garage, completed another step in the building campaign. At the south of the XX1omen's Residence Hall is the Rose Memorial Observa- tory. It provides observational and laboratory facilities for astronomy class members. Page twelve ra-mp 'mr' Mg?

AROUND THE CLOCK Witli the initiation of the system of deferred preferencing at Wesleyan for the first time this year, several new aspects of formal rushing were introduced. One afternoon event was an around-the-clock affair with each girl visiting each sorority Page twen ty-fam' house. Tea was served at the house visited last. The affair proved an orientation to sorority rushing for freshman girls. They were given an opportunity to meet the house mothers and the girls residing in the house. 'M Wh - J' X' - TO SHO THE ME Phi Taus and guests shed their coats to enjoy better baked ham and trimmings cooked the Owens' way. Between courses the Taus blended their voices in their tra- ditional song, The Ramblerr. Crescents and their rushees take a breath of air after returning from the Zephyr Room at the Hotel Capitol. Food and entertainment were furnished and various talks given on fraternity life. li ah, After dinner, Delt rushees were counseled by alumni members on the merits of fraternity life. Special music from the Alpha Gam trio and double talk on atomic energy by Bill Speidel highlighted the even- ing's entertainment. Page twenty-five Xwsd3'T"'+ AKERT, BEN Alliance.

By winning 7 games, tying one and losing one, the Plainsmen had another good season under the able tutelage of George "Bus" Knight. Knights Plainsmen's record for two years now stands 14 wins, 3 losses and 4 ties. This year's squad started out with most of last year's lettermen back and with a lot of promising newcomers. After two non-conference wins at the expense of Omaha U. and Simpson, the boys had trouble with Wayne and were held to a 13-13 tie by the teachers. Then came wins at the expense of Midland, 21 to 7g a rousing victory of I5 to O over Kearneyg a hard fought 8 to 0 Home- coming win over Doaneg a 19 to 9 victory over Peru, which saw Wesleyaix behind 9 to 0 at the half, and an easy 25 to 0 run over the York Panthers.

The final game of the season was with the Hastings Broncos on their home Held. A victory would have given the Plainsmen an un- defeated season and a clear-cut claim to the NCAC crown. In a fast, hard-driving game, Hastings came through with a 7 to 0 victory over the Plainsmen for the biggest upset in the season. This effected a tie for us with the Chadron Eagles. A 7 to 7 deadlock between Hastings: and Chadron left the title to be shared between the Chadron and Wes- leyan teams. Thus we emerged co-champions in the NCAC.

"Big Cliff" finished up the season with his usual hard driving, uncompromising play which earned him a place on the Little All-American team for the second consecutive year. Summarizing the season, the team did an unusual job when all the injuries are taken into account.

The amount of school spirit and enthusi- asm reached an all time high this season. The week was hlled with activity-decor- ating for the Homecoming dance, put- ting up competitive decorations, burning the Tiger effigy, and a round of exchange campus visits between the Doane and Wesleyan students. On the day of the game, parents and friends were entertained at various open houses and buffet dinners. Following the game, the Yellers of the Brown dance was held to welcome the grads and celebrate the victory. At this time winners in the homecoming decorations were announced: Willard won first with a take-off on the current fashion trends. The girls' dorm building project rated a second place winning for Alpha Gamma Delta. The song "Stormy Weather" was the basis for the Phi Kappa Tau first place decorations in the fraternity ratings, and Delta Omega Phi placed second with their cross-eyed tiger ringing the Wes- leyan victory bell. Delta Omega Phi-Second During the half of the homecoming game the Doane and Wesleyan bands were on review. Doane's all-girl drum corps also performed. To the music of "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," played by the Nebraska Wesleyan band from a heart formation, Mary Lea Boner was revealed as the Sweetheart of the W Club. She was escorted to the field by Everett Poe and presented with the traditional sweetheart locket. Eight men and eight women sponsors were chosen by Doane to represent them in the Homecoming activities. The grid- iron sponsors and their escorts, elected by their respective classes for Wesleyan, were seniors: jean Thomas, Edith Emerson, Bill McCarty and Erwin Rihn. juniors: Aileen Ross, Lois Norton, Bill Ericson and Wen- dell Atchison.

SIGMA PI SIGMA Sigma Pi Sigma, national honor society, was founded to serve as a means of honoring students having high scholarship and promise of achievement in physics, to promote student interest in research and ad- vanced study, to encourage a profes- sional spirit and friendship among those who have displayed marked ability in physics, and to popularize scientific interest in the general col- legiate public. Local activities in keeping with these purposes include monthly meet- ings open to the student body which feature lectures and demonstrations by representatives of local industries. Each regular business meeting in- cludes a discussion of recent discov- eries and developments of technical interest. The reception of Dr. John T. Tate, noted Physicist and Director of Re- search of the University of Minne- sota, as an honorary charter member of the local chapter culminated the year's activities.

Winning twelve games and losing ten during the entire season, the Wesleyan hoopsters set a new team scoring record and established themselves as more than just a threat for Nebraska College Con- ference honors. The Plainsman cagers placed fourth in NCC play with a record of ten wins and six losses. In other conference games which didn't count in the standings, the Wesleyan "5" won one and lost two at the York Invitational Tournament. In winning fourth in the conference, the home basketball team racked up 845 points to their opponents 743 points. The entire squad of eleven lettermen will be back next year, besides a number of capable players from the "B" team. The team improved greatly as the season went along and seemed a new team from the one that took a 71-28 shellacking from Bradley Tech University of Peoria, Illinois early in the season. The first team eleven were Clifford Squires, Delbert Miller, Bob Ketterer, Raymond Westover, LeRoy An- derson, Darrell Heiss, Dick Hagemoser, Gayle Voller, John Johnston, Wayne Cash and Ivan Stern.

The two minor sports were track and golf. Five teams competed in the intra- murals. They were the Phi Taus, Delts, Crescents, Barbs and Indepen- dents. In football, basketball and volleyball, the Crescents were leading the Held in total points.

The well known "Indian Love Call", "Rose Marie," and "The Mounties Song" were brought directly to the hearts of the audience by Johnna Ronzo Mor- gan, soprano, Lee Finecy, tenor, and LeRoy Yanney, baritone. The antics of hard-boiled Herman and Lady Jane, the original stage sets, the beautiful costumes, the Totem Tom-Tom dance, and the wedding finale all added to make "Rose Marie" another oustanding light opera in Wes- 1eyan's tradition, "Pop" Bennett di- rected the orchestra and cast through the musical love story of Rose Marie LaFlamme as she and jim Kenyon, a young American prospector, try to prove their love for each other.

They found every town was filled with appreci- ative audiences and good-looking girls, especially Denver. The second post-war tour of the Wesleyan Male A'Capel1a Chorus fea- tured two quartettes, several vocal and instrumental soloists, and a special skit adapted from the kissing scene of this year's light opera.

DANCE BAND Tommy Cooper's Dance Band, now in its second year, played for the Harvest Moon Festival which was an all-school party held in the fall. Amy Barber and Warren Rice were the soloists. The dance band played at many high school concerts in Nebras- ka, Iowa, and South Dakota while on the Plainsman band tour. Several of the high schools tried to schedule a return for their junior-senior proms. The "swing band" did not play in public as much as they would have liked to, since all the members were busy in the large Plainsman band and other activities. Page Fifty-nine 5 W J . 5, Q . . .

With a cast of over sixty, extrava- gant sets in the Hotel de Bourgogne, at Roxane's balcony, at the battlefield, and at the Convent, with complete costumingg and with Carl Bader play- ing the lead of Cyrano the drama was certainly a success.
