' i v - . m h J.C Road in Iur - II In Memoriam ELTON THAYER JOSEPH HUNT JOHN McCALL No, Time, thou shall not boast that I do change: Thy pyramids built up with newer might To me are nothing novel, nothing strange; They are but dressings of a former sight, Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire What thou dost foist upon us that is old; And rather mike them born to our desire Than think that we before have heard them told. Thy registers and thee I both defy, Not wondering at the present nor the past. For thy records and what we see doth lie. Made more or less by thy continual haste. This I do vow, and this shall ever be, I will be true, despite thy scythe and thee. — Sonnett ( XXIII, William Shakespeare. Morning frost nn Hunnrll (,lid - Northern Ligiits Above the Campus DENALI 1955 ' Dr. Willibald Weniger, Professor of Physics Dedication We dedicate this book to Dr. WUlibald II eniger, who retired May. 1955 after devoting over forty years of his life to the anse of education and to the advance of science. Becoming head of the Combined Department of Phytic and Electrical Engineering after lie retired as Dean of the graduate school at Oregon State I niversity in 1951. Dr. W eniger gave lip many of his summers to the task of building up the department and its equipment. But more than being a tireless norker Dr. W eniger has been a friend and elder advisor to people in general at the I niversity of Alaska. To him, a man who has devoted his life and efforts to his fellow men, we dedicate this DENAU. FOREWORD During the past few years our University has grown very rapidly. There has been a great influx of students and growth in interests which have brought tremendous pressure on the University of Alaska to expand. Not until recent years has the University been successful in bringing to the attention of the Terri tory that the University is no longer a one-building operaton. We have tried in the following pages to give you OUR University as it now stands. Many problems have been created by the rapid growth; the need of additional funds to expand campus facilities and maintain the splendid faculty that we have enjoyed in the past few years are among the most important. We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to the Territory for its appropriations tvhich have certainly marked a distinct gain in the interest and welfare of OUR University. A change of atmosphere may be felt on the campus, a gain of interest, and the phrase of " PUSH FORWARD " rings throughout. Yes, " PUSH FORWARD " ! This too is our ivish-to bring to the students a book that will be a flicker of the past. We have tried to arrange this annual as a treasure book in tvhich we have attempted to capture and bind some of the happier moments of University life. Throughout the book you will be able to see the groivth of the University and its promise of the tuture - cuuu Z. } jl lUrriri llrss Mall ' ' « - f ■ » 1« I ' ll T s : 1 M »l§fe ; ■ J Dean Hosley ' s Residence Administration The President ' s Residence - |)r ( hartal I Bunnell.

Patty, President CONTROL OF NATURE IS WON-NOT GIVEN Many of the graduates of the class of 1955 are destined to pjay an important part in the future of Alaska as engineers, scientists, business people, or educators. The stage upon which you will play your role is a large and ' challenging one. In a frontier country you will frequently come into contact with the primitive forces of nature. Remember that the control of nature is won— not given. Set your sights high— make big plans— and work to make them come true. ERNEST N. PATTY, President DEAN WILLIAM R.

Miss Fish, campus nil gamma globulin shots to nca: irnpus and m not before taking the lives of two small children and a well-known professor at the ' November brought with it the athletic season, but, unfortunately, not much school spirit. Since our junior high school days we had been accustomed to fierce loyalty to both team and coach and unanimous attendance at all games. If the team lost, it was certainly not becaus? the fans had not supported and yelled it on. The almost complete distinterest on the part of many University students regarding campus athletics is pathetic and almost totally inexcusable. It is not a good reflection on any college, regardless of size, when a basketball game brings out five cheerleaders and twice that many rooters. While the basketball team had only a fair season, the hockey team, for the first time in quite a few years, produced a good record. For many freshmen coming from small schools, the Polar Bears were the first hockey team they had ever seen outside the movies, and all agreed they couldn ' t wish for a more exciting game to watch than hockey. Highlighting the pie-Christmas festivities was the freshman-sponsored " Snow Ball " , with music by the popular Southcrnaires. Hours of preparation and hard work went into the planning and decorating of the dance, one of the most enjoyable of the year. As One Polar Bear columnist described it, " It was a good dance until 11:00; after that, it was a good party! " No one was happier to leave on Christmas vacation than we first-year students. For many it meant a reunion with our families and old friends for the first time since September. We ha d not yet completely reconciled ourselves to an unattached existence, and neither had our parents. It was only after one or two days at home lhat we realized how much we had changed, how little we still held in common with our home. In spite of the good food and sleep at home, in spite of the semester finals and paper deadlines ahead, most of us looked forward to returning back to campus on January 2. Campus activity hit an all-time low in the post-finals slump. We were content to simply sit around anyway, victims of a mild case of cabin fever. Here is where the Morals Committee and " No Loitering " signs made their appearance. The B. A. Club sponsored its annual calm and sedate dance, the cafeteria put forth its usual quality and quantity of food, the unattached men showed the same general lack of interest in the unattached females. One lone group of freshmen displayed a spark of vitality when they, with the aid of a few upperclassmen, conducted a polio fund drive in Fairbanks on the back of a truck. Their efforts were rewarded with a collection of well over two hundred dollars and the praise and admiration of everyone. After Hess Hall ' s Valentine present to Nerland, and Nerland ' s reciprocation, living picked up markedly. Something new on campus was the Pajama Dance, which turned out to be one of the most enthusiastically attended social events of the year. An interesting little irrelevant fact was unearthed by the dance; less than fifty per cent of the male population on campus own a pair of pajamas! In March, politics reigned supreme as the election campaigns for Student Council officers got underway. Although we were familiar with campaigning procedures as practiced in high school, we were astonished at the large-scale basis on which the campus candidates extolled their virtues and capabilities. Where we had used crayon for posters, we now saw typed or beautifully painted signs complete with photographs. Where we had been content to enumerate our good points only and remain silent about the opposing candidates, we now noticed derogatory statements creeping even into the college paper. Behind all the humor and nonesense of the posters ran a strong current of seriousness; and while the party platforms gave us cause for doubt, the candidates themselves did not. They were, for the most part, earnest and hardworking, and almost all of them were well qualified for the office they sought. Sadie Hawkins never had it so good as the fifty-odd Hess Hall Hellions who nabbed their man on Sadie Hawkins Day. The memorable day began with a raid by the Neriand Nursery at 1:00 a.m., continued with a man-grab by the girls at 5:30 a.m.. and was climaxed by the big Sadie Hawkins Dance that night in the gym. How could the Hellions miss, with four dorms full of handsome men to choose from! If we had been told during the first six weeks that we would hate to leave the University, we would have certainly laughed at the informer. But here it is, the last few days of school, and we find ourselves torn between anticipation of returning home and reluctance to leave all the fun and new friends we made in the dorms and classrooms. We have become (we hope, anyway) a little more mature after the nine months of independent living and the old domestic habits won ' t set easily for us. College has been a valuable experience for us, and, God and finances willing, we hope to be here again in the fall.

Field trips were arranged throughout the school year, covering the important industries in and around Fairbanks. The Club ' s main social function of the year was the B. A. Ball.

Brady as an Instructor of Instrumental Music. Full university credits were authorized for band and instrument classes. This, it was thought, would give recognition and encourage students to contribute to the cultural life of the campus. The Board of Regents authorized the procurement of several thousands of dollars worth of new instruments which are now in use. The initial student response was meager, but by basketball season a small Pep Band was able to offer entertainment at a limited number of games and convocations. Some members of the group also appeared in ensembles and as soloists at student recitals and university programs. The membership increased in the second semester and ten beginning and advanced students were registered for private lessons. The lack of woodwind players restricted the development of a full concert repertoire, but with the aid of a few people from the community the band played other programs including the Spring Style Show and at Commencement.

The Russian Tea Club met weekly this year in the Nerland Hall Younge to enjoy an informal hour of singing, dancing, and conversation in Russian and French. Organ- ized by Victor Strash, assistant professor of French and Russian, this year, the Club practiced the sociable approach to learning foreign idioms, vocabulary, and colloquial speech through the medium of singing and conversation. Members found that by sing- ing, such obstacles to learning a foreign tongue as excessive effort and self conscious- ness are forgotten, and idioms, natural turns of phrase, vocabulary, and enunciation are improved. Also, singing produced additional zest and enthusiasm for foreign languages. VICTOR C. STRASH -® f TEA ROOM Student Christian Fellowship m Krom left to right, first row: Rn Ray. rihrlinic KugelM .

Keith and Swenson Making Camp Time Out Halfway Vp the Mountain 1 Still a lone Wj To Co On the morning of June 1, 1954 two University of Alaska students and an Austrian mountaineer finally stood on the summit of 12,002- foot Mt. Drum to record the first conquest of the mountain. Keith Hart, George Schaller and Hemrich Harrer made the successful climb to the summit after waiting at their 8500-foot base camp for good weather and favorable snow conditions which had defeated three previous attempts on Mt. Drum. The third attempt in May, 1954 by Phil Betler, George Swenson, Keith Hart, and Schaller had failed becaus e of bad weather and avalanche slopes near the summit. Other attempts had been made earlier on the unclimbed peak by mountaineers from the University of Alaska in 1952 and 1953. Betler, Hart, Elton Thayer-who was killed m 1954 on the slopes of Mt. McKinley— Leslie Viereck, and others oarticiDated in these unsuccessful climbs.

CRITTENOEN ••■ ARCHITECT The rapid growth of population within the territory during the last decade has. stimulated a comparable rise in student enrollment at the University. Accordingly, as the present physical plant cannot meet the needs of this enrollment, the University of Alaska has instituted a building program designed not only to meet present needs, but future ones as well. Last August work began on the University ' s food services building which will be completed by September. 1955. Also due for construction during the summer of 1955 is a 12-unit married student dormitory, which will provide modern, roomy, and comfortable quarters for the Mr. and Mrs. going to college. Eventually, additional such structures will be built as the need arises. This building program also has a long range application. A master, designed by Prentice French, well-known San Francisco landscape architect, locates the sites of all new structures so that when the building program is finally complete a well-planned arrangement will prevail. :1 I 1 Ml , The univi -i The construction of an engineering-science building that would permit classrooms »nd l.-u the civil engineering biology, and wildlife fn.m the | classroom building The construction of a new gymnasium and library which would permit the clearing of the :ilding which DO would ■ ■:ymnasium-library structure mediate fill number at new dormitories are planned The first rh will be built like • .• building planned lory which will accommodate 70 Th. : Hiding follow on this priority list •ars ' Glacier Ice at Black Rapids 1 Tanana Valley From Pedro Dome — 176- Special Events llrrr s t.. thr four hlnc- " ' friendship— 1.» int.
