As an expression of our appreciation for his faith- ful work at State College, where he has been sta- tioned for the past three years, and in grateful recognition of his loyalty to our College, we dedi- cate this tw enty-second volume of The Sw astika. The Junior Class of 1928 acvw i,tnoviam Freda Gwendolyn Brunell Freda Gwendolyn Brinell died at State Col- lege,, September 22, 1927, at the age of twenty years. Freda was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Horace P. Brunell, of Estancia, New Mexico. Freda was a mem- ber of the Kheth Samekh Sorority, and had given a great dea l of attention to music while in school. Freda was an attractive, vivacious girl, very popular with all the students in the institution.

UL pesiocMf s (yL eiiev As a ship plows through the water it leaves a series of waves or a " wake " behind it. A philosopher recently wrote: " What a man ' s worth is depends on the kind of a wake he leaves behind him as he passes. ' The 1928 Swastika, then, is a brief record of the wakes left behind them by the four classes in school this year. It is the record of the last mark) or influence upon college life to be left by the class of 1928. The 1928 Swastika is peculiarly their book. It is the record of their mark or influence on the College. With the passing of the years this book will serve to remind all the friends of the College and future students as well of the mark left upon their Alma Mater by the class of ' 2S. That mark has been one of which the class may be proud. The members of the class have helped to make their Alma Mater stronger and better and more favorably known. The members of the class will priie this book as a brief record of their last year of college life. It will recall memories of happy days, of dear friends, of a year of hopes and visions and preparation for the future. As the class goes forth from the College each member takes with him not only the diploma of the College but the benediction of the faculty and student body. We sincerely hope and trust that your hopes may be realized in the future, that your visions may come true, that success may come to you in large measure. May you bring honor and credit to your Alma Mater and ever hold her in love and reverence. May the wake you leave behind you with the passing years be one to which all of us may point with real pride. H. L.

FRENGER Instructor in Piano Plans have been consummated for strengthening various courses of the music department next year. History of Music, Appreciation of Music and Sight Singing will be conducted to meet the needs of the regular students, as well as for the cultural benefits to the outside students. A Sight Singing class for men only has been asked for and will be offered to the students. Several musical compositions of larger form will be conducted by the chorus. There is in sight the possibility of a musical festival either as a part or separate from Good Music Week, May 7-14. Several students will finish the public school teachers course. As this college is at present the only institution in the state offering such a course we have every reason to feel proud of being the first in the state to send out students ready to take positions. Now that school music is a required study in the grade schools of the state, there is an increasing demand for teachers of school music, and teachers trained in the state will be given prefernce. It is the aim of the department to strengthen courses in voice, piano and orchestra leading to a full four year diploma course, candidates being required to take a major and minor in music as well as allied musical and literary courses.

H. E. ALDEN— - Director MILO G. SHERWOOD Student Director IRVIN A. MENGER President Band Club RICHARD FLOYD Secretary and Property Man CHAS. LOOMIS Publicity Manager Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, about eleven o ' clock in the morning, a passer-by would think that some wild, intoxicated hoodlums had been turned loose in one of the rooms of the north barracks of State College campus. irst of all, one hears a wild crackling, brassy snort, from the bell of Beck ' s trombone; then suddenly somebody has to find out if each note is .still in the scale, and if his lip is still in shape, in order to play the drum. Also, about the same time, Milo Sherwood takes out his swinette and adds to the mysterious sounds with the swaying melody of the hoochy-koochy; but Milo only gets started when Bill McCuUa enters, making all the rest of the instruments seem very weak and humble. Next, the band room is brought to a heavenly quietness, and Mr. Alden announces that we might play " Their Ladies ' Misery, " or some other famous waltz, wit h Oscar Allen as the stellar attraction, on the baritone; but Oscar only gets started playing on his baritone, when he decides to sing for a while; and although he does have a wonderful voice, almost everyone appreciates his play- ing a great deal more. But each period, after these preliminaries are at an end, everyone gets down to real practice, in which each student learns a great deal about music, in the way of theory, principles and directing. Mr. Alden, director, is a very capable man and really understands, as well as knows, his work with the band. He understands young men and knows how to work with them congenially, and always gives every one credit for more than what they probably deserve. Mr. Alden planned and successfully completed two tours for the band this year, besides the many concerts and ballyhoos around State College and vicinity. A second tour was made to Alamogordo, Tularosa, Carrizozo, and Fort Stanton, a regular concert being given at the two latter places, while street concerts were given at the other towns. Also, a successful tour was made to Doming, Hurley, Fort Bayard and Silver City. These trips not only help the band men and give them something to work for, but also greatly advertise the school — something that State College needs. A majority of the men were awarded letters this year, after having been passed on by the letter committee and having achieved certain set standards, based on attendance, grades, cooperation and military discipline out en the field. The band being a military organization, it is found that discipline must carry quite a high rating with the band. This year each band member was issued a rifle, and the elementary part of military close order drill was given to Freshmen and Sophomores each Friday, during the first semester, under the leader- ship of some Junior or Senior. This will prove to be of great value to the Juniors who attend R. O. T. C. camps each succeeding summer. This band-year has been an ex ' remely successful one, owing to the fact that a good many new men were added to the organization, and to the successful directing and managing which Mr Alden has done. It seems that each year the band is an improvement over the preceding year, and so we are looking forward to a very successful year during 1928-29. The graduating Seniors all wish the band the greatest success, which they feel is inevitable during the next few years. iMi Ban]3n]3Tlan]arfl= Page 24 m ' ' ' C L 3 asiiU xieni$ on IVY GRANT YOAST, Extension Secretary and Editor ROSELLA BARNCASTLE, Extension Stenographer CHRISTINE BROCKMOLLER, Extension Stenographer MAXINE STEVENS, Extension Stenographer MARGARET FAVROT, Extension Stenographer ELLA MARIE GOODIN, Extension Stenographer MARY ORR, Extension Bulletin Clerk WILBUR LESTER ELSER, B.

In the fall of 1924 the largest Freshman class in the history of the school enrolled. As Freshmen they went through the hazing as true sportsmen and as a result won the respect of the whole student body. The Sophomore year saw them back ready to give everything to the Freshmen that they had received. All went well with the boys, but the girls found a revolting group of Freshman girls, and showed true leader- ship and ability to command by forcing the Freshman girls back into line. As Juniors they gave the most successful Junior-Senior picnic in the history of the College. As the Seniors leave their last year of college behind they will find many fond memories to cherish. The Senior year is one of the hardest years. The class members are constantly called on to serve in some responsible position in the student activities, and also to serve as an example to the underclassmen. But despite these many tasks the class has been victorious and only success can be recalled in its undertakings. Now the members of the Senior Class have at last reached their goal, and they are crowning all their successes with the crown of gradua- tion. It is with true regret that we bid the class of 1928 farewell, but we know that they will be successful in their positions, and we extend to them the best of wishes. The friends of the class will never forget them, and will hold them dear in the memories of their school days. Pace 27 C £ Q ast Q.cik m Q Cecil Homer Barnett Hagerman, N. M. B. S. in E. E. Phi Chi Psi Engineers Club, ' 24- ' 28 Barnett is one who has not taken much part in college activities, but this is all prob- ably due to the fact that he has so many outside interests, such as a wife and baby- It is hard to say how we hate to see him go but though we lose him this year we know that he will always be a loyal Aggie. For Barnett we can safely predict a happy and successful future. Kenneth A. Tatum Alamogordo, N. M. B. S. in E. E. Engineers Club Radio Club, ' 23- ' 24 President Radio Club, ' 27- ' 28 Tatum is a hard fellow to beat. He is a hard conscientious worker and can always be depended on. Tatum is very quiet and is never seen chasing around and is always on hand when you want him. No girl has succeeded in bringing him around to be her " sweet one. " We wonder if he is just cold to the attractions of women or in love with someone elsewhere? b Page 28 . Q a$ti ' Q Hampton Halley Lisle, Jr. Las Cruces, N. M. B. S. in R. E.

When- ever we need someone to represent State College in tennis we always send Halley and are never disappointed in the outcome of the games. We know that wherever Halley goes after graduation he will fulfill all expecta- tions and will uphold the reputation of State College. ¥ George Robert Bunton Magdalena, N. M. B. S. in M. E.

He left us at the end of the first semester last year but for some very good reason (we think we know it) he is going to be with us until June. We hear rumors that he is jealous of any persons With whom Cora Lee may gossip, but that ' s natural I guess. George has served on all sorts of committees and always does his work well. He has helped put over many a dance and has helped make one successful May Day. Page 29 l LS asii Q Harvey Daniel Bronson Las Cruces, N. M. B. S. in E. E. Phi Beta Theta Engineers Club, ' 24- ' 28 K.

He has proved himself a successful student by receiving an appoint- ment to Stone-Webster Co. Though we hate to see Harvey leave us, yet we hope that he will make as good a success outside as he has made here in college. Minnie Bess Hayes State College, N. M. B. S. in G. S.

Anyone who has seen him play basketball can only wonder how any human being can do the things Wayne can with a basketball. But then it is no wonder he can accomplish such things when he knows that somewhere in the audience Juanita is waiting with the most adoring look in her eyes.

Bennie seems to get along very well in every thing he tries to do and is a very popular fellow. He (we are told) rules the A. D.

It was supposed to be a secret, and might have been, but he was so unwise as to put " married " on his application. George is a well meaning, conscientious young man, works hard and probably will be a very suc- cessful young man. He is an excellent student and belongs to the ' honorary " Ag " fraternity which speaks for itself. Page 35 . Q asimc Q Irvin Albert Menger Alamogordo, N. M. n. S. in B. A.

Page 45 L Q a i c l L- G,asiiG.c iuniov V» ia55 S we leave our junior year we feel that we have left one of the most interesting years. We feel that it is the junior year that " makes " a class; for during the junior year come the hardest duties of all four years of college life. It is up to the Juniors to put out a year book to be remembered by all the classes. The " Swas- tika " is the only means we have of recording all the little details which happen during the year. This, in itself, means a great deal of work, but it is only one of the many duties of the Junior class. As Sophomores we were still getting a thrill out of college, but as Juniors we have learned that life is a serious business, and we have settled down in earnest effort to get ready for it. Juniors must learn the duty of being dignified Seniors and lead- ing the lower classmen. Next year it will be up to us to uphold the traditions and customs of State College. The Juniors have had their share in all the school activi- ties. We were represented in football by Tom Mann, and O. H. Swartz. Swartz has been elected captain of the next year ' s team. In basketball Floyd Taylor and Cornett. We were also well represented in baseball and in all music programs. Our number has somewhat diminished since we were Freshmen. Two of our class, Freda Brunell and J. T. Alex- ander, have passed away; but altho-ugh they are no longer with us, we feel that memories of them will be with us always, and that we are better for having known them. Others of our class have left for various reasons. But, though we are small in number, we still have the same spirit which carried us through our Freshman and Sophomore years, and which we hope will help us next year. On leaving this year behind, we trust that we have upheld the traditions of former Junior classes, and that classes to come will have the spirit which belongs to this college year.

He was also assistant football and basketball manager, so we judge he is a real worker. Concha Raeaela Aunon Las Croces, N. M.

Oliver Hamilton Swartz DuBois, Pennsylvania Alpha Delta Theta " Ollie " and " Miss DuBois " are very popular with the entire college, especially one little freshman girl. He finds time between trips with " Miss DuBois " to keep an engineering course going. He is one of the best liked men in school. Elizabeth Hoagland Las Cruces, N. M.

She al- ways has a smile for everyone on the campus, and is well liked by all. John Curtis Thompson Deming, N, M. Alpha Delta Theta Another married manl But John can ' t be put into one class as easily as that, for he is one of the outstanding men of the school. His wife has not seemed to be a drawback at all; in fact, we think she has proved to be a great help to him. Bruce Hornbrook Sage State CoUege, R M. Phi Beta Theta Bruce always seems to be in a terrific rush, and we judge from the record that he is making in engineering, that there is some reason for all his hurry. He keeps a great many things going around the campus, for Bruce is one of the most active and wide awake students. Page 53 S £-5 «S i i bSL ani Jesse Uras Richardson Mesquite, N. M.

Page 55 l L Q asiiUm Page 56 L £ S asf i Ojl ov ontove v- lasS E, the Class of ' 30, came back to school with the benev- olent idea of producing as good Aggies among the Fish as had the Sophomores of the preceding year. From the start we found many strenuous duties, but these were easily and efficiently handled under the guidance of Ralph Elsass, who was elected class president. We are proud to say that, due to the foresight of the faculty, our verdant friends had things more conveniently arranged for them than they were for us when we first arrived. By the time we got back to the old campus, the aspiring Fish were thoroughly organized and were ready to cope with fate. Not- withstanding this fact, we have the satisfaction of knowing we stood our ground on every occasion. We opened the social year with the Sophomore cotillion, October IS. This was one of the best attended dances of the year. The decorations were very unique, featuring the Indian motif. We also did our part in athletics, for both men and wom- en. We had four men who won football sweaters, one of whom made substitute on the " All Southwestern " team. We have one letter man in basketball, saying nothing of the men who came out to give the first string men practice. Our women ' s competitive games were confined to physical training classes, but the Sophomores furnished some of the best material for basketball, volleyball and tennis. This social life did not take all of our time, however, as George McNew showed us when he went to the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show. He not only received $75 in different events, but was presented with a watch for being high man at the meet. Financially, the class has done exceptionally well this year. Besides paying off all of last year ' s indebtedness, and giving the cotillion, we are planning a float for the K. K. K. parade, and expect to have enough money in the treasury to help to- ward the annual entertainment of the Seniors next year, in appreciation of what they have done for us.

The faculty ' s reception consisted of four days of intelligence tests. However, as they were scattered along between parties, banquets and dances, we didn ' t feel so badly treated after all. No casualties were reported in regard to these tests, so we were all launched on our college career the following week. With the coming of the Sophomores, there were several new kinds of entertainment Introduced, part of it, incidentally, being furnished by the Freshmen themselves. The Fish-Soph tie-up, even though it ended in defeat for our side, showed the Sophs, as well as the rest of the student body, that we were a little bit better than " mere babies. " The results of " Rabbit " night may still be seen anywhere within a radius of fifty miles. " Fish— 31 " — That ' s us. And as to the " poor fish " in Organ, just ask the Sophs. We are not to be held respon- sible for the answers that you will probably get. Despite the rather worn condition of the boys the morning after " Rabbit " night, we started for Bell Pool on our picnic. Trucks and trailers may not be as easy riding as a Packard, but they cer- tainly do get you to your destination— after so long a time. We kept our eats, even though one of the boys did have to make his exit through a skylight and play human fly down the side of a hotel to save them for us. Then the Edict I Green ribbons, green caps, green socks, even " skunks " — all were conspicuous for a number of days. Then we gave the natives a treat when we paraded down Main street, with a swim thrown in for good measure afterwards. And that was the night we helped swell the treasury of the Sophomore class, in addition to entertaining them while doing so. Who could resist buying candy from a fair co-ed? Maybe they didn ' t realize that we were nothing but Fish when they bought it from us. " A " day— and never has the " A " on T ortugas mountain shown brighter in the history of N. M. A. C. As to the milk cans— they should have known better than to loan them to a bunch of Frosh to paint an " A " with, if they expected to get them back in the same condition in which they were loaned. Personally, we can ' t see how a few dents could make so much difference, and everyone knows that it is much easier to roll a can down the mountain side, than to lift it gently by the handles and carry it down in order to prevent scratching it. And, besides, they weren ' t our milk cans. The soft glow of lights on broad strips of green and white paper, a haunting waltz, a wonderful time— and green loUypops. Ask anyone what that means, and you ' ll get for an answer— " Fish Hop I " Did you ever know a Fish flag to stay on the flag pole until ten o ' clock in the morning, before this year? That ' s another record we broke. But we can ' t understand why the pole was flagless the rest of the day. Our Freshman year has drawn to a close. Our first year at N. M. A. C. is completed, and there is not a single member of our ranks who does not hope to come back next year and fight for the " Aggles " — as well as make good " Aggies " out of the " Fish— 32.

For most of the boys it means only lots of work, while others seem to find fun along with their work. Every fall our " A " on Tortugas becomes rather dingy looking after a year of bright sunlight and even snow sometimes get it, so it has become the custom of the students to have a holiday and freshen up the big white " A. " Early in the morning of the appointed day the boys start for Tortugas with huge milk cans of water and sacks of lime, also big vats to mix the white- wash in. The Freshmen and Sophomores must mix it and carry it up the narrow treacherous path to the top, where the Juniors and Seniors with all their dignity paint the old " A " in another new yearly dress. From the campus the path up Tortugas looks quite plain and climbable, but when it comes to climbing up these same paths with a can of whitewash it is another story. Besides its being hard work, there are always some en- thusiastic women in the way, trying to help encourage the poor " penitentes, ' ' but really they are more trouble than help because who would sit and rest when his very special girl friend is watching and being so helpful? They never seem to tire of jabbering and running back and forth. Even the Juniors and Seniors meet with trouble; the sun gets awfully hot and it would be such a relief to discard certain articles of clothing and then once in a while it might be awfully nice and necessary to refresh oneself with the contents of various canteens brought up and hidden about, but those girls ! More mixing, more climbing and more painting, then all over again until you think you can ' t possibly make it up that hill (a mountain now) again and still you go on up a hundred more times and then you ' re through. " The ' A ' is painted! " Once more it is whitened and glistens in the sunlight and really you are quite proud of your labors. Every man grumbles and growls about the painting of the " A " , yet every year they are all back eager to paint it again and if any form of punishment could be more effective than having to stay at home on " A " ' day we have yet to see it. " A " day is an institution, a custom and who wishes to get away from the old traditions of the College?

B. Jett Fellow with the Best Line Ralph Robinson The Kollege Kactus Karnival is an annual event, which has been held after the popular- ity election for the past several years. The first May Day festival was in 1902, though the Karnival is of more recent origin. The festival was held this year on May 4. A new note was struck in this year ' s Karnival in carrying out an imitation of the " Day ' s of ' 49. " The plan was so well worked out that one could almost feel that he had been wafted back to the real gold rush days. The first event of the day was the parade through Las Cruces, with the band at the head, with three beautiful cars carrying the May Queen and her attendants next in line. Many clever and attractive floats, entered by the various classes and organizations on the campus, followed. The " ship " of the Sophomore class — " The Spirit of ' 30 " — won the first prize; the Kheth Samekh club house and golf course, second; and the Ag. Club ' s gold seeker followed by a home-seeker in a covered wagon, won third place. Immediately following the parade a hold-up of the old stage, in which rode some in- teresting old-time characters, was staged. The rescue party did their part beautifully and, with much shooting, scattered the tough looking bandits. The hold-up and shooting were so realistic that many of the spectators fled as quickly as did the bandits. In the afternoon, and continuing through the evening, a carnival was held just outside of the gymnasium. The various booths, which were run by organizations and classes, were patterned after the days of ' 49. Gold dust or, in other words, ordinary money, was turned in for yellow Kollege Kactus Karnival bills, at the rate of $1.00 worth for 5c cash. These bills could then be spent in various fascinating ways. Fortunes were made and lost at the Monte Carlo gambling hall; much money was squandered at the saloon, where customers were served by barroom girls, as in the old days. Tears were shed and smiles were born for those whose fortunes were told by the gypsy lass. Crack shooters tried their luck at the shooting gallery, and noise was furnished by the sale of bells and whistles. There was plenty of ice cream, and hamburgers to satisfy all the old-timers. At 7:30 p. m., the coronation of the May Queen, the outstanding event of the day, was carried out in beautiful manner. The Queen ' s throne, under an artistic canopy, stood on the platform at the east end of the gymnasium. The procession, led by the winners in the pop- ularity contest, who were announced by a herald in military uniform, passed slowly from the entrance, between two rows of " Her Majesty ' s guards " to the dias. The Queen, drsesed in lovely silver satin, then passed through the waiting lines to her throne. There the Greatest Aggie placed the crown on her head and, after a May Day solo dance, the Queen and Greatest Aggie, followed by the Queen ' s Guards and ladies in waiting, began the grand march. The dance then continued until midnight. This year ' s Karnival was considered by all to be the best that has been held for several years past. Much credit is due the K. K. K. committee for putting across such a fine May Day affair. It seemed that everything happened in the right way, for even the weather behaved perfectly, producing one of the most pleasant of New Mexico days. Paie 77 D ' C S S ' PRESENTED BY THE DELTA SIGMA SORORITY, APRIL J9, J928 " Kempy, " the Nogent ' s lively American comedy, in three acts, was presented by the Delta Sigma Sorority on Thursday, April 9, at Hadley Hall. The story centers around Kate Bence, a lovely, versatile girl, one of three daughters in a family in which the management of wealthy marriages is a deep and serious problem. When the play opens it is practically certain that, with a little promotion on the part of the family, Kate can " get " Duke Merrill, a desirable bachelor and worth the required million. Just as everything seems to be working out to perfection, Kat, in a fit of pique, marries Kempy, the young plumber who has come to fix the water pipes. The ensuing mix-up brings forth one humorous situation after another, until finally, with the aid of Duke, who is really in love with Kate, Kempy is brought to earth sufficiently to complete the work on the plumbing, and to disclose facts which show that the marriage is illegaL As a result, Kate and Duke are married, and everyone is satisfied. Maurine Dyne played the part of Kate, with Marshall Beck as Duke Merrill Much credit for the success of the presentation is due to Professor Hoag, director, and to the men students who took parts in the play or helped with stage work and lighting.

Charles Loomis, who had been re-elected to succeed himself, graduated at the end of the first semester, and Rufus Lisle was elected to fill this vacancy. Wayne Woods withdrew from school and was replaced by Marshall Beck. The Round-Up this year has been about the best ever put out by any editor. The size of the paper was increased to six columns by Mr. Loomis, and this was kept up by Mr. Lisle. In spite of the new elections, the paper was still printed and no numbers missed, as was done last year. Mr. Lisle has been one of the best editors, in that his paper came out on time. Every Wednesday morning the paper is in the Canteen. At the elec- tions, held just before the Swastika went to press, Mr. Lisle was re-elected as editor for the coming year.

Be cause of this changing about of managers, the work of the annual was very much delayed and the staff will consider itself lucky if the book comes out on time. While working under these difficulties, we have tried to produce one of the best books put out. How we have succeeded will be seen when the students receive their books and voice their opinions. We hope this book will bring back many fond memories of the school year. Page 80 ' C§£_5 S ' Harvev Bronson Bill BouTz S ' eigFried Michaelis Charles Woods Hubert Harker CJ c cA . C V. C V.

Its members consist of representatives of each class, and the student body officers. The Commission works under the difficulty of this being a small school. The questions that come before the Commission are not those that would come before a similar commission of a large school; so we are not able to profit by the experience of others, and have to work out our own problems. This year is the first year that a girl has served on the Student Commis- sion. Miss Freddie Lee Bradford was elected at the first of the year to the position of secretary and treasurer. Each class is allowed two representatives, with the exception of the Fresh- man class, which has only one. All elections are held under the supervision of the Commission.

Hadley Hall was luckily equipped for broadcasting and was used as a studio until the old amateur radio building, back of the Commercial building, could be reconstructed The building was increased in length and divided into a reception room, entrance hall, control room and studio. New furnishings, drapes and equipment thru- out were installed, and the studio made what the term implies. A new Baldwin grand piano especially built for KOB was also installed. The latest design of amplifier and loud speaker improved the quality and control. Because of the changes brought about by the J927 Radio law, KOB was assigned a new wave length of 3944.5 meters, with seven other stations. To these was added another, KMA, at Shenandoali, Iowa. The result has been very bad interference between KOB, KWKH, at Shreveport, Louisiana, and KMA. Every effort has been made to get KOB a clear chan- nel, and prospects for straightening the matter out in the near future are very bright. Dean Goddard, as a member of the Radio Committee of the Association of Land Grant Colleges and Universities, went to Washington in January, J928, to help solve the problem. While the station is equipped to put out JO K. W ' s power, the license allows 7500 watts 6 A. M. to 6 P. M., and 5000 watts thereafter. KOB is the most powerful college station in the world and one of seven of the most powerful broadcasting stations in the United States. The regular schedule has been increased by the addition of an hour musical program at noon. This is proving very popular with the people of the Southwest, as attested to ' by many let- ters and telegrams from llsteners-in. The staff under the direction of Dean Goddard has been considerably increased. The KOB orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. Alden, is composed of Mr. Alden, violin; Mrs. Frenger, piano; Professor Overpeck, cornet, and Marshall Beck, trombone. The technical staff consists of Halley Lisle, Earl Kiernan, and Kenneth Tatum, operators; Bob Stewart and Carl Rixey, announcers. Page 83 §.

Page 85 l S S asiiUh TED R. COFFMAN LIEUT. GEORGE H. BARE COACHES pJioofbalL The J927 football season saw the Aggies bucking strong opposition, both opposing teams md Fate seemed allied in an attempt to crush the Aggie eleven. Our opponents believed that this was their golden opportunity to wreak revenge; they believed that this year would be their best opportunity to send our gridsters down to defeat. The College team had been used to the whole backfield carrying the ball, but now, with only Rut? and Limbaugh, they had to adjust themselves to protecting these two men and to saving their strength. Not being accustomed to this, the team sacrificed many games at the first of the season, that, if they had played them at the close of the year, they would have won. Coach Ted Coffman came to us this year from the University of Southern California, and started to build an Aggie grid machine almost entirely from new material, and to Page 86 m ' C L asiiUl CAPTAIN BENNIE RUTZ ¥ Page 87 L Q asiiUmi FOOTBALL SQUAD October 8; New Mexico Miners, 0; Aggies, 40 State College October 15: Sul Ross, J9; Aggies, 6 State College October 21: New Mexico State Teachers, 0; Aggies, 3J Las Cruccs October 29: University of Arizona, 33; Aggies, 6 Tucson November JI: Texas Miners, J9; Aggies, 6 El Paso November 18: University of New Mexico, 26; Aggies, 9 State College November 24: New Mexico Military Institute, JO; Aggies, 6_ .State College instill a new style of playing into the old stars. He was faced with the proble m of build- ing a backfield around Rutz and Limbaugh, as the other candidates for backfield posi- tions had had little or no training in the wiles of college football. Although the J927 graduating class only took one gridster, only seven of the ' 26 lettermen returned for the ' 27 season. The Aggies had suffered the previous year from the loss of six graduating let- termen, and perhaps " Cap " Brown ' s prephecy that their loss would be felt for several years had a far firmer foundation than the majority of us suspected. These men who have graduated were the biggest and heaviest men. They have left the team light in weight, and the new material coming in have been mostly men of light weight, and the team has not yet been able to adjust itself to this new condition. Page 88 l L Qjasiii cd CAPTAIN BENNIE RUTZ Four Letters Ctptain OLIVER SWARTZ Two Letters Captain-elect Notwithstanding Coffman ' s handicaps of being forced to work with new material, and instilling in his recruits a new brand of football, he built up a team with lots of fight, which I believe to be the foundation for an All-Southwestern Championship eleven within a few years. Winning the game is not the " be-all " of sport j the game must be played; someone must lose, and often highest honors belong to the vanquished, for it is how the game is played that really counts. Surely there is no criticism due the Aggies on this score; they played the game hard and clean, they fought from start to finish. The Aggies started the season perfectly, with an easy win of forty to nothing over the New Mexico Miners, who made up for their inability to score by fight. mi Page 89 l t-. Q asii( c BILL BOUTZ Third Letter JAMES McBRIDE Football Manager TOM MANN Two Letters Then came the first tragedy of the season. October J5, the Sul Ross delegation of expert gridsters dropped in to pay the Aggies a social call. After being held for three quarters, Sul Ross sent in a fresh backfield, centered around Alford. This backfield of experienced football players roared up and down the field during the last quarter, leav- ing the Aggies with the short end of a nineteen to six score. In spite of the fact that Sul Ross was walking away with the game and tearing them to pieces, the Aggies did not give up fighting, but played the game to the end. The next week our anger was somewhat appeased by a thirty-one to nothing victory over the State Teachers. They came over with high hopes, but went back with drooping, feathers. Coach Coffman, wishing to give his first-string an opportunity to recuperate from the Sul Ross game, and more men a chance to " do their stuff, " played second-string men almost entirely in this game. Page 90 FORREST SEALE Third Letter DAVENPORT MECHEM One Letter WAYNE FORD One Letter Our first team did to the Teachers what Sul Ross did to us — they walked in and took the game from under the noses of the Teachers. Our hopes were once more soaring high, and we wanted to crush Arizona. To defeat them, we felt, would virtually assure us of the Southwestern Championship. October 29, we invaded Tucson, but were turned back with a score of thirty-three to six. The Aggies did not hit their stride until the last quarter, and after one of the regulars had been pulled on account of injuries. Then they pushed over their lone touchdown and were able to break up the Arizona spinner play, which had been working so effectively. November JJ, after two weeks spent in recuperating from the Arizona clash, we met the Texas Miners, in El Paso, and the thing which the Aggies most hated to see happen came to pass — the Miners defeated the Aggies for the first time in history. Page 91 §L Q asiiUm EDWARD SMITH One Letter MATT FRITZ One Letter VELMON AUTRY One Letter The Aggies fought harder in this game than in any othe r contest of the season. It seemed that the honor of the school hinged on winning it, especially after just barely win- ning it the year before. Perhaps the most sensational run witnessed by Aggie fans this season, was the Rutt ninety-yard run for a touchdown, after receiving a punt. If the Aggies could now successfully turn the New Mexico University back, that team ' s claim to the Southwestern Championship would be shattered. The University invaded State College, and returned home with a lop-sided score of twenty-six to n ' ne in their favor. We had been defeated on our own field by the Lobos. We were doomed to one more defeat on our home field. Thanksgiving Day, the New Mexico Mil ' tary Institute invaded and went away with a ten to six score under their belts. This was the most hotly contested mmi Page 92 i ciueiireiyc i ' C§£-5 «Sfi a_ ALVIN LIMBAUGH Two Letters RALPH ELSASS One Letter MONROE BOUTZ One Letter f game of the season, with the Aggies threatening to score several times, only to have the breaks go against them. Even though the season may not be regarded as successful, from the standpoint of games won, it had been a success in that a firm foundation had been laid upon which we hope to see the greatest Aggie eleven in history built. It is true that our record for this year does not look good, but we can hope for better results next year when the boys are better trained and the men and Coach Coffman get used to each other. Lieutenant Bare was assistant coach this year. The lieutenant has played on the team at West Point, and was a great aid to the boys.. He, like Coffman, was new to the College Page 93 L Q asiiUh CHARLES LOOMIS One Letter EDMUND STONE Three Letters WAYNE ADAMS One Letter and had to get in swing with the teani. We can only hope that he will be back to work with Coffman and build op a strong team for next year. Captain Rotz wU not be able to play next year, because of the fact that he has al- ready played three years of college football; but, in spite of this fact, he will be on the campus and be able to help the men along. Besides losing Captain Rut«, the team will also lose Stone, Adams, Loomis, and Seale, who are all graduating this spring. These men have all played and fought for the school, and the team is going to feel their loss keenly. Stone and Loomis are two of the heaviest men in the line, and Seale is one of the fastest ends the College has ever had, while Adams and Rutz are out of the backfield. Swartz has been elected to lead the team next year. Swartz has won two letters and played on the team three years. He is one of the best linesmen in the Southwest.

Though the team did lose only one man by gradua " - tion, only two of the lettermen returned this year. So the beginning of the season saw a very much weakened team start out for practice. It was only a short time before the team was in full swing and anxious to go. The first games saw the Aggies ' spirits rise high, after the team showed such fast work in their first games with the Miners. Then came the games with the Teachers. These games showed some of the fastest basketball that had ever been played by an Aggie team. The first long series of games began when the team went to play the New Mexico Miners, and then on to the University. They were the first games in which the Aggies really had to fight. The team was far from home, and the rooting section was not there to encourage them to fight, or to keep on fighting even if they were losing. The team fought hard for the school, but were not victorious. The last really big game was played at home with the University of Ariiona. The Arizona team had taken our team down in football, and now came our chance to redeem ourselves on the basketball court. The games were played on the High School court, strange to both teams. In the first game luck seemed to be against the Aggies all around, and they were unable to hold the University. The second game found the Aggies better able to hold the Wildcats, but luck could not stay with them and after a couple of men were forced out of the game, the Wildcats got ahead and again defeated the Aggies. Page 9i " C L- S ' RALPH ELSASS Center JAMES HUMPHRIES Forward The prospects for next year are very good. Th; only man to graduate this year is Adams, so if the rest of the men come back, we should have one of the best teams in the Southwest Every year the Aggies hope and pray for a good team, but they always run into the luck of having all the team graduate or none of them come back. We can hope for next year, however, as the team is now composed mostly of upper classmen who do not change schools so often as those who are starting out and looking around for a permanent place to hang their hats. " Nigger " Mann was the captain of this year ' s team. " Nigger " is a Junior and one of the best players on the team. He played guard and was always on the alert. No man has ever made a better captain of the basketball team than Mann was this year. When the team seemed to be down and out and unable to play another minute, " Nigger " could always put some new life into them and bring out the old Aggie spirit. Adams is the only man on the squad to graduate this year. He has made one of the fastest forwards that has ever played on a basketball team for the College. Adams did not de velop until this year, when he proved to the school that he was one of the best athletes ever to attend State College. He made his first letter in both basketball and football, and showed that he was deserving of them. Adams starred in several of the games this y«ar, especially against the University and Arizona. Humphries is only a Freshman, but he showed what a Fish can do if he desires to get out and fight for his schooL Humphries, like Adams, played forward, and between the two of them they made a team hard to beat. Humphries was feared by the Miners more than any other man on the team. We hope to see Humphries back and fighting for the Aggies again next year. Page 91 l L Q asii cK . RAY BOUTZ Forward OSCAR ALLEN Utility Man Elsass was the center for this year ' s team. Playing center seems to have an attraction for Elsass, for he played center on the football team. Elsass is a Soph and, therefore, has two more years to play on the team. This was his first year on the team, and in the next two years he should develop into one of the best players in the Southwest. Ray Bout? was one of the smallest men out for this year ' s team and, therefore, getting his letter in his Freshman year says much for his ability. Many men larger than he have tried for several years, but have not yet made their letter. Ray was a great support to the team in that, though he was small, he was as fast as a streak of lightning. Allen also played his first year with the Aggie team, though he had played with the EI Paso Junior Gillege team the year before. Allen was general utility man, being used in whatever position he was needed. There are few men _who can play as a general utility man, so Adams should, by next year, earn a permanent place on the team, as he showed this year what stuff he was made of. Cornett played a fast game of basketball, and still has one more year to make his letter in. He has played forward on the second team for two years, the only reason for his not being on the first string being his size. " Slim " Floyd is another man who has practiced faithfully with the team for three years. " Slim " plays center on the team, and is one of the best pivot men. Lewis played with the Aggies for the first time this year. He is a Junior and so has one more year to make his letter in, and if he keeps up his good work there will be no doubt of his making it. Page 98 fC$s a ikc eHMi5 For several years tennis has claimed the attention of a number of students at State College, but not until the season of 1927- ' 28 has there been any notice- able support from the faculty or athletic department. In the past years, matches have been played with El Paso Junior College, and the Texas School of Mines, but these matches took on little of an official nature, being sched- uled and arranged by the students themselves. The season began with the organization of a Tennis Club, Hally Lisle being elected captain of the school team. A game was scheduled with the Texas School of Mines, and a tournament was held immediately to determine what players should represent the College. Men ' s singles, men ' s doubles, and mixed doubles were arranged and play ed with much interest. Mark Reames won the men ' s singles, defeating Rufus Lisle in the finals. Hally and Rufus Lisle took the men ' s doubles, and Bruce Sage, playing with Mrs. Heinzman, won the mixed doubles title. The first match with the Miners was played at State College. Oscar Allen, one of the Aggies ' best players, was away on a basketball trip, so the College was badly handicapped. The Miners won the match with two doubles and one single victory. Both Rufus Lisle and Mark Reames won their singles matches. A return game was played later in El Paso, but the Miner net men were too strong for the Aggies. A high wind prevailed and playing was very disagreeable. For a while interest in tennis seemed to lag, due to the difficulty in ar- ranging games. Finally it was arranged for Sul Ross to meet the Aggies on Miller field. High winds had been blowing for the last two weeks and, as a result, the State College men were sadly out of practice. Two single match- es, won by Rufus Lisle and Mark Reames, were the only victories scored. H. Lisle and Gaskill lost their singles and their doubles. Rufus Lisle and Reames also lost their doubles. A return match was scheduled to be played at Alpine on May 12, but the results were not at hand when the Swastika went to press. Although the Aggies can not claim many victories for their first year of inter-collegiate tennis, those interested in the game feel that a decided boost has been given toward an organized tennis team for the future. Hally Lisle is leaving this year, but the other four players will be on hand next fall to carry on the work of shaping a team and working in new men. Page 99 S. Q asii RctI w L v- e Vvomen $ cxvf icfic y $$odai ' ton The Woman ' s Athletic Association was organized January 14, 1928. Mary Will was elected presi- dent; Monique Sweet, vice-president, and Opal Brown, secretary. The executive board, which consists of the officers, the heads of sports, a Freshman member, and the head of the Department of Physical Education, makes all appropriations for running expenses, approves of committees, authorizes new sports, and makes recommendations and suggestions regarding all affairs of interest to the association. The association was organized as the result of the vote of the Athletic Committee to discontinue women ' s inter-scholastic athletics. The aim of the association is to encourage participation in all kinds of athletic competition, thus furthering the physical efficiency, health, democracy and sportsmanship of the student body. Any regularly registered woman student of the College, who is active in athletics of any kind, is e ligible for membership. To retain active membership, a girl must come out for one semester a year for at least one sport sponsored by the club. The sports sponsored by the association are: volley ball, basket ball, archery, tennis, riflery, and hiking. Awards for participation in these sports are made by means of a point system. For compe- tition in any sport, twenty-five points are given; for making a team, twenty-five points; for captain, twenty -five points; for competing half time, fifteen points; for playing on the team, with no compe- tion, ten points. One point per mile up to twenty-five points a semester is given for hiking. Points from Women ' s Athletic Associations of other colleges are transferable, according to the point system of the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. An " A " pin is awarded for three Page 100 j ' -TSg£_(5ft ' S ' K. » hundred points; a letter for six liundred points, and a sweater for one thousand points. Spirit, service, and sportsmanship are also considered in making these awards. Several girls will receive pins this semester The Association has developed a greater interest among the girls this semester in athletics. This has been shown by the spirit and attendance at the inter-class volley ball and basket ball tournaments. The finals in both tournaments were played Tuesday evening, March 27. The small admission charged at these games will go to the picnic fund. The finals were between the Junior-Senior team and the Freshmen, the Sophomores having been eliminated earlier. The Junior-Senior team was victorious in both games. There are forty girls enrolled in the tennis classes, eighteen in archery, and nine in riflery. A tennis tournament will be held the first of May. In archery and riflery a contest will be held to determine the best marksmen. Money for the association is derived from the general athletic fund, used by the Athletic Committee for the woman ' s basketball team. which, heretofore, has been The officers are elected for a term of one year, on the first of May, and are installed at the final banquet, held some time in May. Other social functions are dances, picnics and get-togethers given by the Association.

Every year before this the team has half-heartedly gone out for practice and then played only one or two games at the most. In looking over our record foT this year, we find it is not so bad considering this. Many of the boys had never played on a team before, and there were no lettermen of baseball to cheer the work on. The team had new suits and went out for the game proper- ly. This year there will probably be no sweaters awarded to the boys who have played, but we hope that in the future this will be as much of a letter game as football and basketball. tf ?. ■JT ' A ' rViiftdK. . iff ■ »iiisi Ml LI TART ' ■TS§t_5S ' as ifcl.g ft JAMES H.

HECHEM, Staff Sergeant Page 103 • t- Sasfifc The Congress of the United States appropriates funds for the training of college students, at certain institutions, in military science. The object of this training is to secure trained officers for the United States armies in time of war. The duty of those responsible for giv- ing this training are threefold; First, to maintain the R. O. T. C unit in a condition and state of training satisfactory to the War Department; Second, to give every possible as- sistance to the individual students in improving themselves in military knowledge and fitting themselves to be capable reserve officers upon graduation; Finally, to encourage the graduates to keep up their military work as reserve officers. It is known that this year the training of this unit was highly satisfactory to those representatives of the War Department who inspected it. It is also believed that the Oass of J928 will contribute a group of well trained Second Lieutenants to the reserve corps. Page 104 l L Q asii 71 1 : Unfortunately, the R. O. T. C tra ' ning can not fit its graduates for alt of the possible duties to which they may be assigned in war. The course does not attempt to cover the duties of battalion and regimental staff officers, communications officers, and but little can be given which would fit the graduate for duty in the Howiizer or Machine Gun company, except the study of these weapons themselves. Ample opportunity, however, will be given to you of the class of J928 to continue your military studies as reserve officers; you may take the army correspondence courses, receive from two to six weeks training annually as a reserve officer in your grade, or be ordered for a six nvonths ' course of training at one of the army service schools. I would like to urge on every graduate that he make application as soon as possible for at least two weeks ' active duty training with his organization, and while on this train- ing decide what particular duty you would like to have in time of war; then, by using whatever spare time you have available, perfect yourself in the study of this duty. The army in war is intensely specialized and an officer can not expect to know all there is about all the numerous duties. So it would be wise to start at the very beginning of your commis- sioned service on a specialty. I would like to say that I believe the most valuable training of all is duty with the National Guard. Every one of you men would make a valuable National Guard officer to some organization, and by being with the Guard you would have the advantage of being with an actual organization, completely equipped, and with enlisted personnel to work with. In conclusion, I would like to commend the cadet officers of the Class of 1928 on their work during the past year. I can conscientiously say that there is not a single one of you that I would not be willing to have in my organization in time of war as a lieutenant. I can assure you that if there had been, I would not have recommended him for a commission. Page 105 • f— S-oSfifiA-f So tnvan r " Z uO R. M. BUELL, Captain Commanding F. B.

The Glee Clubs gave two creditable performances. Bethlehem, a Christmas cantata, was given during the holidays in the Methodist Church in Las Cruces and repeated in Hadley Hall for the student body. About sixty singers were in the production. The spring concert, presenting advance students of voice, piano, violin, trombone, clarinet, costume, accompanied by the orchestra led by Professor Alden. Christmas music was taught all the grades of the Brazito school " by three students from the public school department, supervised by Miss Kurth. Voice students assisted various church choirs by singing solos or in choruses during the year. Special by orchestra, voice and piano students was furnished for every assembly period. The spring concert, presenting advance students of voice, piano, violin, trambone, clarinet, and other instruments, won favorable recognition. The girls ' quartet was sent on two trips, singing for various organizations in near by towns. Page 109 l L- Q asi aS v» e i rt t ' ineev$ V« imd The Engineers ' Club or, officially, the State College Chapter, American Association of Engineers, passed a rather quiet year. Activities were confined primarily to several inspec- tion trips to El Paso, and to Silver City, Hurley, Santa Rita and Tyrone districts. A few- meetings were held, with speakers from outside addressing the club. The Engineers ' float in the K. K. K. parade, while not a prize winner, attracted much favorable comment. After six consecutive years of one hundred percent membership in the Club, of eligible Engineering students, as testified to by three large silver loving cups offered by the parent Association, a relapse seems to have been suffered. It is hoped this may be overcome next year and all of the Club ' s activities renewed with the old enthusiasm. With the fundamental aim of the Club in mind, of broadening the student ' s viewpoint and increasing his practical knowledge of engineering subjects, as well as accustom-ng him to appearing before an audience and putting over ideas, the value of membership and at- tendance should be apparent to all. Social, as well as professional benefits, have been derived in years past which might prove an added attraction to many.

The objectives of the club have been to promote the appreciation of the dignity of home making as a profession and home economics work in general, to develop initiative in the girls of the college and to give an opportunity for social life. Soon after the reorganizaticn of the club this year it was thought desirable to become affiliated with the state and national Home Economics Clubs. Work was soon begun and the club is now affiliated with both state and national clubs. This is quite a step forward and one that will aid materially in the development and advancement of the club. A district conference of the representatives from the various Home Economics Departments in the high schools and colleges in southwest New Mexico was held in Deming this year and as a representa- tive of the club here, Gladys Groves at ended. Various talks were made en the problems met with in home economics work and means of solving them. Miss Graves was leader of a round table discussion cf some of the different phases of home eccnomlcs work. All the meetings this year have been held in the Home Economics rooms during the noon hour. At the first meeting a formal luncheon was prepared and served by the freshman class, to all the girls of the Home Economics Department and to several guests. The club was organized and officers elected. Since then the luncheons have been Informal and served in buffet style, being prepared by the sophomore foods class. These luncheons give practice in the planning, preparation- and serving of meals and develop a sense of responsibility and a keener appreciation of practical home problems in the girls. Ihe business and social programs have always been held directly after the luncheon, con- suming the remainder of the noon hour. These programs were always well p lanned so that they were both interesting and beneficial to everyone. One meeting was given over to the study of the work of Ellen H. Richards in the advancement of home economics work. There has been a fund originated to carry on the work she started and by paying our share we are now on the list of schools supporting this fund. Since the organization of a Home Economics Club in the Las Cruces High School the College Club has been sponsoring It in its work. A joint meeting was held and the problems and duties of home economics clubs were discussed. Judging from the work of the club the short time it has been organized this year, next year should be very active and profitable. Page 111 i £_(5fi " s«fi ' a e omtnevce (Bu m The enrollment of the Commerce Department has greatly increased, and the Club has had some very interesting meetings,. Prof. Guthrie has taken Professor Harper ' s place as six)nsor. Professor Guthrie has been an excellent leader, and his enthusiasm has been contagious so that all members are intensely interested in the work of the club. This year we have a new instructor in Professor Haight. He came to us from Oregon and has made many friends here since he arrived. He has put forth a great deal of effort to make the Club a success, and we want to thank him for his cooperation in everything the Club has undertaken. Next year we hope to increase interest in the club, with an increase in size. Page m mfC asiiilc mM OFFICERS President Ogburn Gaskill Vice President Evelyn Robeson Secretary-Treasurer Lloyd Whitafcer This is a new club on the campus, haying been organized last fall. The original idea in organizing it was to take trips to the various points of interest around State College. The club members especially hoped to visit and explore the various famous spots in the mountains. With this idea in mind the club has made trips to Dripping Springs, the White Sands, and various other places. To most of the distant spots the club went by car and then spent the day exploring. As distances are so great in this country they would have spent their whole day going and coming, and would have had no time to enjoy themselves, had they hiked. The most interesting of their trips made this year was to the White Sands in the Tula- rosa Basin. These sands are one of the wonders of the state and are very popular as a picnicing ground. Plans are now under way for the club to spend a week-end at Kingston soon after school opens for the fall session and explore the old mining camps.

At some of the meetings they have outside speakers, at others members of the faculty talk on Agricultural subjects. At every meeting there is a speaker who discusses some outstanding problem in agriculture. Every year when the high school club boys meet at State College the Ag Qub enter- tains them and presents the high point boy with a gold medal. The Ag dance is considered by many to be the best dance of the year. The dance this year lived up to the expectations of everyone. The Ag dance is the climax of the club ' s activities.

At the regular meetings the programs have been varied and interesting, including speak- ers from Las Cruces, musical numbers by members and outsiders; and H. E.

The new women students were entertained during the first week of school by the Y. W. C A. at a picnic on the mesa., which was attended by many of the older students, as well by the Freshmen girls. Other picnics of a similar nature were enjoyed by the members during the year, and added variety to the programs. Although the number in attendance at Y. W. C A. during the past year has been small, the meetings have been very much worth while, and the organization has continued its at- tempt to fill a need which is not met through any other club or society on the campus.

Its members feel that their attempts to build up the school, the fraternity, and the individuals themselves, have been rewarded with a marked degree of success. At the first of the school year. Gamma Sigma moved into its fraternity house at Mesilla Park. Here quite a number of the members took up their living quarters in September; and the number was In- creased after rush week. Here also the rush week smoker was held, and many visitors were enter- tained here during the year. The two major social events of the frat, the annual dance, and the Gamma Sigma Final, were both very successful. The final banquet, given on the last night of each school year, is the outstanding affair of the fraternity. Here the members get together for a final time before the graduates leave the old school; and here also many of those who have been out of college for some time come back to renew old ties. The Final is an event looked forward to during each successive school year, and looked back on for several years to come. Altogether, another prosperous milestone has been passed in Gamma Sigma history. Individually, its members have carried off many honors. Collectively, Just as much has been accomplished. Fratern- ally, there was never more enthusiasm or harmony within the organization— striving for the further- ance of its Ideals. Viewed from every angle, much has been done toward, " The banding together of carefully chosen and selected men for the purpose of advancing the welfare of the College and student body, and for bringing about of closer relationship between the students and the faculty, for the establishment of high ideals, and the furtherance of the desire to live up to these ideals.

During the scholastic year 1927-1928 it has been, as usual, very active in the continuance of its principles, and has gone far in realizing the aims which constitute the goal toward which each member strives. Socially Alpha Delta Theta has enjoyed the honor of entertaining at its several dinners, dances and receptions many good friends among the students and faculties of this and other schools and among the host of college friends and acquaintances in this community. On November 24 the fraternity held its annual fraternity ball, given in honor of the football team of the New Mexico Military Insti- tute, which was a unique affair and afforded the fraternity the opportunity of enjoying the company of many delightful guests. The annual private fraternity dance was given at the Amador Hotel, Las Cruces, during rush week. The members of the fraternity had the pleasure of being hosts to a number of friends, including Freshmen who were being rushed. Bridge tables were furnished for those who were not dancing. The evening was one of the most enjoyable of the year. About the middle of the first semester the fraternity pledged Ralph Elsass and Vern Lewis and conferred the final degree upon Wayne Ford and Alvin Limbaugh, who had been pledged the preceding year. After rush week the fraternity pledged Eugene Denton, Ward Charles, Lester Richards, Sam Bradley, James Humphries and Dan Nichols. Alpha Delta Theta has contniued its excellent record in athletics of years past, having numbered among its members a captain of football, captain of basketball, and a number of letter men, as well as having next year ' s football captain elected from the fraternity. We could also boast of being well represented by officers of the R. O. T. C, student body, student commission and many other college organizations. The Alpha Delta Theta wishes that as years go on its members may ever take an increasingly active part in all that tends toward the building of better men and a better college.

HEINZMANN The Phi Chi Psi fraternity has successfully completed the third year of its short but successful history, the fraternity having been founded in January, 1926. In taking an inventory of this year ' s achievements, it is easy to see that mistakes have been made, but it Is far better to consider the fine spirit of fellowship that has prevailed among the fellows and faculty advisors. This has been brought about in a more lealistic way by having a fraternity house. Life in the fraternity house has been found very successful and enjoyable, bringing about more than ever ties of friendship that will last a life time. When the fraternity was founded, certain alms and ideals were set forth which were: to increase the mutual acquaintence and social activities of the members and in every way to make them more useful in the service of God and their fellow students. We are able to look back over the past year and know that we have all assisted as much as possible in carrying out these ideals. Phi Chi Psi has taken an active part in athletics, scholastic and social activities of the college. The fraternity had two letter men in football, two letter men in basketball, four men on the baseball squad, and one player on the tennis team. All the members and pledges are in good scholastic standing. We have four members, Wayne Adams, Curtis HcCan, John Ogburn Gaskill, and Claude E. Post, who are members of the National Honorary Agricultural Fraternity, Alpha Zeta; and one member, Charles P. Loomls, who is a member of the Honorary General Science Fraternity, Sigma Epsilon. Two of our men were on the dairy judging team which went to the National Dairy Show at Memphis, Tenn. Three of our men were on the dairy judging team which went to the Fat Stock Show at Ft. Worth, Texas. Others have taken part in dramatics and ether activities. The fraternity is proud of its achievements and school activities, and is always glad of an opportunity to help N. M. A. C. Among the more important social activities are: the party given by the fraternity early In the fall, inviting girls and others to enjoy an evening at the new home; the first dance which we hope will be an annual affair; a pleasant and enjoyable hay ride and picnic supper; and last, our annual banquet, a happy ending of a successful year. We will never forget this farewell banquet, which was the final gathering with some of our brothers whose college days at N. M. A. C. are ended.

" The Phi Beta Theta Fraternity feels that after one year it has passed the embryo stage; that now it may enter into a truei stage of development. There is much yet to be realized, but, in a small way, its ideals have been realized. Much is yet to be done in the formulation of student codes. The Fraternity occupies its house, the Spanish style home of Mrs. A. B. Sage, just north of the campus. Phi Beta Theta has followed the social lead established last year — smokers and house dances featur- ing the program. The first Phi Beta Theta annual dance was given March 3, 1928, the first anniversary of the organization. The Phi Beta Theta Final, the last get-together of the year, is the one oc- casion which will always be remembered by its members as the best event of the year. Rush Week the Fraternity had the pleasure of entertaining, at its home, a number of friends, including Freshmen rushees, with a smoker. Card tables and stunts furnished the en- tertainment for the evening. In looking back over the year, the Fraternity feels that it has completed a very successful year, and that it may look forward to many more successful years in the future.

FOSTER GEORGE McNEW EDEL POST The New Mexico Chapter, the thirty-fifth chapter of the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta, was established at State College February 24, 1927, by the five members of the High Council. This is. the largest honorary agricultural fraternity in the United States, with a total membership of approximately eight thousand. Qualifications for membership are based on scholarship, leadership, and character. In the latter part of the fall, 1927, the chapter gave a smoker for the Sophomores in agriculture at the home of President Kent, to acquaint them with the nature of Alpha Zeta— its history, purpose, and standards. The Alpha Zeta faculty members were present and assisted in the program. They are; Dr. H. L. Kent, L. N. Berry, R. F. Cox, H. V. Jordan, L. H, Hauter, and E. E. Anderson, In May a banquet was put on for the members and their guests, and for the Alpha Zeta faculty. The chapter sent Ogburn Gaskill to New Orleans as a delegate to the National Biennial Conclave of the Fraternity, held there on December 29, 30, and 31, 1927. Each of the thirty-six chapters was represented at the conclave, which was quite successful. A silver cup was purchased, and shown in Hadley Hall, to be given to the highest ranking Freshman in agriculture at the beginning of his Sophomore year. It is the intention of the New Mexico Chapter to continue this custom of honoring high scholarship in agriculture. George McNew, high point man at the Fort Worth Dairy Judging Contest, and Edel Post, also on the New Mexico dairy team at this contest, were selected from the Sophomore class for membership in Alpha Zeta. Two old members Joined our chapter this year: W. W. Adams from Fort Collins, and Don C. Foster from Oklahoma.

GARST Honorary Members IDEALS OF THE MU PHI PI HUGH M. MILTON, Jr. The ideals of Mu Phi Pi may be briefly summed up in the motto: " Scholarship, Practicality, and Sociability. " Scholarship In engineering is a prerequisite for membership. To be eligible for membership in this fraternity, the student must rank in scholarship among the highest third of his class. In addition to scholarship a man must be able to apply his technical knowledge and training in a practical way to best solve any and all of the problems of life, particularly those of his owni profession. Moreover, to attain the highes t degree of success in one ' s work, one mutt have that quality of sociability which enables him to cooperate with his fellows and which marks him as a good fellow— one to be desired as a friend and intimate associate. Membership in Mu Phi Pi is a jus ' reward end a mark of distinction to those who have most creditably measured up to their duties as students, and shown most promise of professional success. To the underclassmen Mu Phi Pi should be an incentive to better and more consistent work. Page 127 l L Q,asd CWm " pi OmicroH HONORARY BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION Members: Oris V. Wells Faculty Advisors: G. L. Guthrie L. D. Haight m m m m Students in the Department of Business Administration whose scholastic work is of an exceptionally high standard and whose ability as leaders has been satisfactorily proved are rewarded by admission to Nu Pi Omicron, Honorary Business Administration Fraternity. The fraternity was organized in 1926 and at present has a membership of five, with Oris V. Wells as the active member in the Class of 1928. The ideal of Nu Pi Omicron is superiority in Business Administration, combined with ability in leadership. A student is not eligible for membership until he has completed the first semester of his Junior year in college. Fur- thermore, he must rank among the highest one-third of his class and must have shown that he is capable of taking the lead in school activities as well as in the class room. Membership in Nu Pi Omicron is the goal toward which every under- graduate in Business Administration should strive. m m m 4 =aj2a Page 128 ' ajauejueys fl3nl3Rlanlar m ' LS asiif c K- aienc enoav 4. 7. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 22. 24. 29. 30.

Advisor: Mrs. Locke GLADYS GROVES, OLGA HARLAN, LLOYD WHITAKER, OPAL BROWN, AGNES KOCHLER, ROSALIE HASSELL, MARY LOUISE TUTTON GRITA TURNEY, Pledges: OREANE BRAIDFOOT, EDITH LYNN, ELIZABETH LOOMIS IRENE McCANN, CECELIA BULLARD The Kheth Satnekh Sorority has had a most enjoyable and successful year. There has been only one thing to mar the happiness and welfare of the sorority, and that was the loss of one of the most popular and outstanding members — Freda Brunell, in the early part of the year. The organization owes much of its success and progress this year to the cooperation of the sponsor and advisor. Mrs. Howell kindly gave the sorority the use of a room in her newly furnished home for a chapter room, where meetings are always held. As in the past, the Kheth Samekh Sorority has taken an active part in social affairs. The first function was a tea given at Mrs. Feather ' s, for all the new girls on the campus. Some of the other social functions were: A Christmas party the Monday night before vacation; a dance given for the girls who played football in the inter-sorority game; and a rose party, given in the spring. The annual dance was given on March 31, in the new Las Cruces library building, this year, and it is agreed by everyone who attended that it was one of the best dances of the year. Many new features in decoration? were carried out. At the end of the football season the Kheth Samekh Sorority and the Delta Sigma Sorority held a friendly contest in football for the amusement of the student body. Although this was a new thing in athletics for both sororities, the Kheth Samekhs showed their adaptability to the new situation by carrying off the victory with a score of 7 to 0. Rush Week began this year with a bachelor-girls ' party for the members and rushees, given in the chapter rooms, and ended with a formal luncheon at the Hotel Hussman, in El Paso. The Kheth Samekh pledges seven girls this year, the largest number since the sorority was organized. These girls all show exceptional qualities of scholastic ability, leadership and high ideals. A new objective, which was set up early in the year, was to place ten percent of all the money coming into the treasury in a saving account to be used for a house fund. The sorority feels that it is only beginning to carry out its ideals in taking part in all college activities leading to the betterment of the institution, and the promotion of a closer relationship and feeling of understanding and friendship among its members, and hopes that the next year more may be accomplished.

The Sorority has encouraged its members to enter into college activities of all kinds; it has endeavored to train the members socially and, above other things, it has insisted upon high standards of scholarship. This year the Delta Sigma started with a satisfactory record in the sale of Lyceum tickets. This was soon followed by a successful rummage sale; and shortly afterwards the annual sorority dance was given at the C!ollege Gym on Home-coming Day, after the Aggie- University game. The dance took place on November 18. Before December first the group was eagerly practicing for the Co-ed football game with Kheth Samekhs, December 3. On the J7th, Miss Charlotte MacGregor, of Berkeley, California, was the guest of the organization, and while she was here the group was entertained with a delightful dinner party at the home of Mrs. H. L. Kent. After vacation and exams came rush week, with the Freshmen holding the center of the stage. At this time Delta Sigma " rushees, " members and sponsors were dinner guests at the home of Miss Maudie Lowe; Mrs. J. H. Howe entertained with an enchilada supper, and a dance honoring " rushees " was given at the library. Since rush week, the annual picnic, April first; a benefit bridge, April J4, and the sor- ority home-coming and final dance constitute most of Delta Sigma ' s organized activities. On April J9, with the aid of Profesor Hoag, and a number of men students, " Kempy " , the sorority play, was presented. The Delta Sigmas also began to issue this year, a monthly alumni and chapter news letter. The letter, a mimeographed paper called " Delta Doings, " is the only student news publication on the campus aside from The Round-Up. Among individual members who are outstanding, Mary Will, Delta Sigma president, is also president of the W. A. A., the Y. W. C. A., and Sigma Epsilon, the Honorary General Science fraternity. A Delta Sigma is Business Manager of ' The Swastika; " another is Secretary -Treasurer of the Student Body, and a third is Associate Editor of " The Round-Up. " The first two places, in particular, have not previously been held by co-eds. Even the pledges are dis- tinctive, too: one, for example, is steadily maintaining an " A " average in her scholastic work and, in addition, is a talented musician, an accomplished athlete, and active socially. . , Ill auuiliuu, i: d laiciitcu iiiuai(.iaii, aii av. uiii Aiou«.4. aKui f aiiu a i.ivc vA.iaiijr. With the completion of this list of activities, comes the hope that by living up to the als of the organization Delta Sigma will be equally or more successful next year.

M. A. C. The Kappa Phi now has only two members as the students can become members only after the second semester of their junior year and then only if they have maintained a standard of 88% or better during the time she is in school. Miss O ' Lcughlin and Miss Anderson are the advisors of the sorority and have aided the girls in keeping up their standard.

Faculty Advisor: DR. P. M. BALI LINCOLN FEATHER JOHNNIE ODOM MARY WILL, ' 28, Vice-President HOWARD BARTON, ' 29 The Sigma Epsllon honorary general science fraternity was organized in 1926. Its purpose is to create a higher standard of scholarship among general science students, and to enco urage all student activities that are of benefit to the College. Scholarship is especially stressed, but character and qualities of leadership are also considered in the selection of members. Membership in Sigma Epsilon brings the honor students of the general science school in closer contact with one another, affording them opportunity for concentrated effort in dis- covering and striving for higher ideals in the field of general science. Membership in Sigma Epsilon is a reward to general science students who have accomplished their work well and shown a real in- terest in scholarship and college activities. It is hoped that the under-graduates in the general science school will strive toward membership in the fraternity, and find inspiration in having such membership as a goal. No person having an average grade of less than " B " is eligible to membership in Sigma Epsilon. At the beginning of each school year students ranking in the upper third of the junior general science class, and having an average of " B " , may be elected to membership at the vote of the members of the fraternity. At the beginning of the second semester, the sophomore with the highest grade among the general science students of that class may be elected to membership. Low grades, flagrant indifference to scholarship, poor moral attitude, or any other reasons which would make a person ineligible were he outside the fraternity. If continued for a time, will furnish grounds for expulsion from the fraternity. i l ' H ' Cg£_5 ' ' Sfi a_y HM | Why Not Reduce Your Fuel Expense by Using Swastika and Domino Coal?
