TOAST TO THE RED AND BLUE
Young men, I call upon you to rise and join me in this toast to THE RED and BLUE and thereby dedicate your lives to the service of your Alma Mater and to the Greater Arizona. May you
“See the many-millioned acred land Won from the desert by your hand, Then swiftly ’mongst the nations rise ‘Arizona,’ a sovereign State,
And on her brow a star,
‘The University of Arizona.'”
And may that star shed throughout the land the guiding light of Truth in colors Red and Blue—your colors and mine.
Red—for the red blood of pioneer brotherhood and manly courage to win by true service to your country;
Blue—for the blue blood of aristocracy of high motives, high ideals, high intelligence, and high progress toward Arizona's perfect day.
Toast given by Professor Colvin on the occasion of a banquet given in his honor by the Social Science and Late Students of the University of Arizona at the Old Pueblo Club, June 1st, 1916.OFFICERS OF THE BOARD OF REGENTS

The University of Arizona has been marked from its first organization by a gradual and steady development. This growth has not only been a material one in the formation of a campus with fine buildings and grounds, with the accompanying increase in the faculty and a greater enrollment, but also an advancement in educational standards, and as a result of these the acquisition of that necessary though intangible element, the confidence of the people of the State.
From Commencement in 1895 to Commencement in 1916 the distance is long in years; but longer in the advancement made. When in 1891 the old Main Building was opened first for classes, thirty-one students came to be instructed by eight members of the Faculty. Old Main was the only building to break the sweep of the greasewood-covered desert, for Tucson was but a handful of adobe houses on the Santa Cruz. The life of the whole institution centered in this building. In it were the administration offices, recitation rooms, laboratories of the various departments, the library, the Experiment Station, and the Territorial Museum. The basement was even used as a dormitory for the men students. Most of the students lived in town, however, and came out to the University in an old street car drawn by two mules, a well-known feature of pioneer days.
Four years later—the first Commencement—there were the beginnings of our present Campus, for West Cottage and East Cottage—professors’ homes and the President's cottage—had been built. Lawns were started in the front of the buildings; but there were no large trees to break the barren sweep of desert that stretched away on all sides. Out of the forty-seven students, three were graduated, receiving diplomas tied not with red and blue, but with sage, green, and silver, the college colors at that time.
By 1904 the Campus was the same as today with the exception of the buildings of Science, Agriculture, and Arizona Hall. North Hall was completed in 1897; South Hall in 1901; the Dining Hall, 1902, the dining hall, previous to this being in North Hall; Herring Hall, 1904; the Library, 1904. The Science Building was finished in 1909; Arizona Hall in 1913; while the Agricultural Building was completed in 1915.
The town of Tucson had grown up to aiid around the University, so that' when the Commencement of 1916 was held many people gathered on the lawn near the vine-covered Old Main Building to watch the impressive procession of black-gowned professors, the Alumni who had returned to their Alma Mater, and this year’s graduates march up the tree-lined walks.
The Student Body has always been an active force. Even when few in numbers they issued a college paper, the “Sage, Green, and Silver,” which snapped with life and interest. As for athletics, in 1902 the first football team was organized which was successful in several games. There were four women’s teams of basketball. Tennis was played, the Courts being where they now arc.UNIVERSITY HALLAssemblies were held at which the students read papers on literary and scientific subjects. The first intercollegiate debate was held in 1906 with the University ot Southern California.
But while the life on the Campus was very busy, it did not reach beyond, as it does today. It was not intercollegiate as now. The students today can indeed be proud of this year’s debates with the University of Southern California and with the University of Texas; of the football battles with Pomona, Whittier, and the New Mexico Aggies;and the Southwestern Track Meet; and, what will always remain as a record of student activity, the big “A” on Sentinel Peak.
With this growth and exceeding it has come that in collegiate standing. Because of the funds which have been available to the University as a State institution, the growth of collegiate standing has been possible far in excess of what might be expected of an institution in a pioneer region- When this Uni-veisity was first organized, the instruction was mainly in the field of agriculture. Later, opportunities were offerred for the study of mining. Now the work has so broadened that there are the three distinct colleges of Agriculture, Mining, and Liberal Arts. In the beginning years a Preparatory Department was found to be necessary because of the lack of high schools in the Territory. In 1914 this department was abolished, so that today the registration includes only college students. The requirements for receiving a degree have been so raised that our graduates are prepared to compete with those of the leading institutions of the country. For among our Alumni are those holding such positions as Director of the Bureau of Mines, Pittsburgh, professorships in mining schools, responsible commercial positions in mining; and the Liberal Arts College is represented by the two Rhodes Scholars of distinction, Alumni in the American Consular Service, and a number holding instructorships.
While material growth, increase in Faculty and students, advanced educational standards, are essential to the development of a University, there is yet another element—the confidence of the people. Without this the others are impossible. The people of the State, many of them graduates of Eastern colleges, have heretofore felt that their sons and daughters should go back to those colleges. But more and more this idea is vanishing and a feeling of confidence and trust in the worth of this University is constantly growing. In the words of President von KleinSmid, “This increasing trust is one of the most encouraging signs for the University’s future growth. ”LIBRARYSCIENCE BUILDINGTIVH II LC10SARIZONA HALL

At the beginning of the school year the Debating Society began its work in fine spirit. Many new members were enrolled and several debates were held. This society, however, was soon to become inactive. Most of the members joined the class in public speaking and there received the training, under excellent coaches, which took the place of their own efforts in preparing debates for the society. The second semester found practically the whole society merged into the public-speaking class, and there it held debates once a week and recited both original and copied orations.
Fourteen students entered the trials for the debating team. These trials were held on two successive nights. The judges, Dr. Cresse and professors Fegtly and Colvin, picked the winners and their places on the teams.
Arizona started out rather strongly for its first year of intercollegiate debating. The Law School of the University of Southern California has a great reputation for debating, having met successfully such opponents as Columbia and University of Denver. The Arizona men worked hard because of the knowledge of their opponents' prowess. The result of the debate was very gratifying to Arizona. This victory helped very much toward making intercollegiate debating a firmly established institution in the University.
The fame of the Texas team reached us long before the debate. We heard of their successdn Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Southern California, yet Arizona entered into the preparation with heart and soul. The experience of the older Texas men gave them an advantage which won the debate for them, but Arizona feels proud that her men put up the hardest fight of any team Texas had met and secured the only vote cast against the visitors on their long trip.
Intercollegiate debating took up so much of our time that we had very little left for preparation for the Drachman oratorical contest. This contest was held on May 26 and was exceptionally interesting. This contest closed the oratorical activities for the year.

The past year has been one full of accomplishment for the Student Body Organization. Early in the year the season ticket made its first appearance on the campus, and through its nominal price materially benefited the finances of athletics and increased the attendance at the various games. A primary election system was adopted which put the political situation upon a much more substantial basis. The building of the "A” will always stand out as one of the biggest things the student body has accomplished. A revision of the constitution was made, whereby the executive power was placed in the President of the organization and the legislative power in the House of Representatives, cooperative with the University administration. The first meeting of the Southwestern Track and Field Conference was held this spring. Arizona was very successful in this and looks forward to a continuation of the meet and a resultant growth of track and field sports."CCD PIJTOa CSTILL
The Woman’s League
Chairmen of Social Functions.—Mary Estill, Anna Pistor, Inez Thrift,
Inez Rolph, Lois Whisler.
This year, as is the custom, the Woman’s League opened its social year with the reception of the new girls and the wives of the new faculty members. The League this year has been more active and perhaps more successful than in any previous year of its organization. The purpose of this society is purely social, and, consistent with this ideal, the girls, after the football rally preceding the Varsity-Whittier game, invited the boys over to the Gym, where they served a most delicious lunch which was followed by an informal dance. During the evening there was a candy sale the proceeds of which were turned over to the big "A” fund.
The greatest event of the social life of the Women’s League was the leap-year dance on January 20, 1016. The gymnasium had been beautifully decorated with garlands of greenery, holding up artistic Japanese baskets filled with pink chrysanthemums. The interesting feature of the dance was that the girls made their own dates and after the grand march filled out the programs. It was the source of much merriment to watch the girls trying to find their partners and at the end of the dance to see how gracefully they conducted their gentlemen to their seats. The dance was declared to have been the most pleasurable one of the year.
On that memorable Saturday when the Sentinel A w'as completed the girls of the Woman’s League took out the lunch and served it to the hardworking Varsity men at the foot of Sentinel Hill. Later they all climbedup to the A and watched the completion of the monument dedicated to the
This year University Week brought a very large number of visiting high-school girls. As a courtesy to our visitors the League entertained with a reception in the Woman’s League rooms. The Wranglers gave a most unique program in the form of Mrs. Farley’s Wax-Works. After the program light refreshments were served and an opportunity was afforded to form new acquaintances and friendships between the University girls and their guests.
This year marked the three hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and in commemoration many cities and most Universities and colleges gave plays and pageants in honor of his memory. The University paid its homage to the greatest of English writers when the Woman’s League, under the direction of Miss Chapin, gave “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” A more beautiful spectacle can not be imagined. At the very beginning one was carried into the land of fancy and fairies not to return until the audience was bidden "Good Night” by Puck, perched in the branches of a distant tree. The spirit of the whole play was one of artistic simplicity, thus emphasizing the beauty and charm of the poetry and music. An enormous audience witnessed the play, and both the Woman’s League and Miss Chapin, whose dominating influence and excellent coaching made the production possible, may be congratulated for what has been considered the most successful, finished and artistic performance ever given by the University.
The commemoration of Shakespeare’s anniversary was a most fitting close of the social year of the Woman’s League which has become one of the most active and interesting organizations of the University.GLADYS GIBBS. PMCaiOKNT
Woman’s Self-Government Association
OFFICERS FOR 1915-16 COUNCIL
Gladys Gibbs, President.
Inez Rolph, Vice-President.
Ruth Reed, Secretary-Treasurer.
The Woman’s Self-Government Association had its origin in the spring of 1913, when the young women living in the dormitories met and elected three members to form a council. A constitution and by-laws were drawn up and submitted to the faculty for suggestions and were later adopted.
The movement toward self-government was the result of the wider outlook of the University and a desire on the part of the young women to take their place in the affairs of the University and to govern themselves.
The next school year the plan was put in operation and has been maintained with great success and enthusiasm since that time. Through this plan each girl can consider herself a factor in working for the advancement of the interests of the young women of the University community.
We express the deepest gratitude to those young women who have in the past given so generously of their time while serving on the councils of the association and materilalizing this plan which has meant and will mean so much to the women students of the University.THE BATTALIONMilitary Staff

Philip DeR. Clemens.The University Invisible
Many a thing of large import is unseen by the surface gazer. To those who in a University see only the present, they see but part. As real, as vital, is that numerous folk who have come before, and though now scattered, do still exist, the University Invisible—the Alumni.
What the roots are to a strong tree are they to their Alma Mater, giving vital force to the upbuilding of a larger and fairer structure.
“As the present is but the past entered through another gate,” they are the formers of Today, the makers of Tradition. Afar they are seen to move in Fancy’s golden haze, from which vision grows elusive “Spirit.”
They are the pathfinders. They have gone on; but have left behind trails to guide those who come after. . •
Greetings of the Alumni Association to the University
It is a pleasant duty to express the loyal regard of the Alumni of the University of Arizona to the President, Regents, and Faculty and to the far-seeing and devoted men to whom we owe all that the University has given to us.
In view of the fact that we this year celebrate the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the opening to students of the University, it seems fitting perhaps to give a brief account of the formation of the Alumni Association and its purpose.
In June of 1895 the first diplomas were awarded, just three in number. There was no graduating class the following June owing to an increase in requirements for graduation; but the next year found three graduates ready and anxious to receive their degrees Feeling a desire to keep in touch with and to be of service to our Alma Mater, as well as to keep in touch with one another, the members of the classes of 1895 and 1897 held a meeting the evening of June 2, 1697, for the purpose of organizing an Alumni Association. We had our constitution and by-laws all drawn up, so that after adopting these, we straightway elected officers and were launched a full-fledged Alumni Association at our first meeting—its, object, to quote the constitution .being: “To promote the interests of the University, to secure unity among the graduates, and to .foster an attachment to our Alma Mater.”
Let us always be ready to help each other. Let us keep in touch with our University; and if there be criticisms at any time, let us investigate before we accept them or deny them. We will find that the problems are many and the difficulties are being met as fast as it is in the power of the President, Regents, and Faculty to meet them. It is for us to help with loyal sympathy and support.
Then, there is the other side, that this Twenty-fifth Annivarsary brings forcefully to mind; what the University has done for the Alumni—in broadening our lives, in giving a stimulus to make a record such that our Alma Mater shall not be ashamed of us, whether it is made in the home, in society, in scholarship, in literature, or in science, let it be all for our Alma Mater.
Clara Fish Roberts,
President of the Alumni Assicoation,
University of Arizona.To The 1916 Desert:
It indeed gives me pleasure to answer the request for a letter giving the attitude and feeling of the Southern California colleges toward Arizona; and this opens the way for me to express my pleasure at the way the “old University” has progressed this year. I am expressing the sentiments of every alumnus, I know, when I say that this advance speaks well for Arizona and augurs well for its future.
Every great development must have a start and an incentive to grow and enlarge. I am a strong believer in true school loyalty, and I am sure that I can safely say that a large share of the success of any University or college is due to the school spirit exhibited. I have watched with a great deal of interest the work of the University this year. Every activity seems alive and to breathe the true “Arizona spirit” as constituted by the everybody-pull-together, never-say-die attitude.
In my work I have occasion to visit the colleges and schools in Southern California, and this enables me to observe the attitude ol these different schools toward Arizona. I am proud to say that there has been a change from the old idea of a small “cow-college” to a State University which means respect and equality. In visiting Pomona, I found that they are our best friend and manifest a most friendly feeling toward Arizona. Even defeats on the football field have not shaken this feeling and they eagerly await an opportunity to again meet Arizona in athletics.
Other southern California colleges realize that Arizona must be rekeoned with when they imagine that they are athletically supreme. The fact that the Southern California Athletic Conference, consisting of Pomona, Occidental, Whittier, and Redlands, extended to Arizona the inviation to join the conference speaks for itself, namely the fact that Arizona is equal to, or better in athletics. I sincerely trust that Arizona will accept the invitation and join the conference.
The most eventful occasion and cause for rejoicing was the winning of Arizona’s debating team against U. S. C- Law School team, one of the strongest and best teams in California. A long string of victories with prominent institutions of this country made it seem only proper that the Law School should have the Wildcat pelt to hang on its walls of knowledge. Arizona’s team couldn’t see it that way and won the debate. This served to convince the Southern California colleges that the athletic victories were not accidental and that Arizona has become a school that is in the running in every activity.
In closing let me congratulate the present Student Body for the progress made this year. The letter “A” recently completed is a monument that will stand forever as a reminder that you served your college well. The “Arizona Spirit” has asserted itself in many ways and I am proud to acknowledge my allegiance to it and the school it represents.
Very sincerely yours,
Walter M. Brewer. ’15,

Captain “AftCft" PoATtRTHE 1915 VARSITYThe Season
While from the standpoint of the critic the football season of 1915 may not have been as successful as the season of 1914, when the Varsity had an undisputed claim to the championship of the Southwest and California, every Arizona student is convinced in his own mind that the team which represented Arizona this year was the greatest "little team” that has ever represented Arizona in any form of athletics.
Arizona does not claim any right to such honors as were won in 1914, but in defeat she has shown that she knows howto lose; and when a team can show that virtue, there is something more than football instilled in their make-up—something more worthy of commendation than the mere fame of being a winning team.
Arizona has had a hard schedule this past season. She has played teams not only well versed in football but having a great advantage in weight and experience. In fact, there was not a game this year with a college team in which Arizona was not heavily handicapped by lack of weight. Regardless, there was not one game in which her opponents showed more real knowledge of the game and a love of fight for victory.
Arizona has been the invader this past season. Our team has traveled hundreds of miles that the right kind of competition might be secured. Long trips of this kind can not but take strength when it is most needed, that strength which, is necessary to the indomitable Arizona Spirit in the final effort that a victory may be gained. While it is true that the big Thanksgiving game was played on our own field, it is only just to say that we were playing a team which knew football thoroughly and had a great advantage in weight and experience. That game will and should go down in history, and Whittier well earned her victory.
The season was opened with the very brightest of prospects. The percentage of the old men who returned was large, and it seemed that the new men included a number of promising candidates. With McKale at the helm, reinforced by preparation during the summer, there was no doubt in the minds of the students and the backers of the team that the instruction of the men would be well taken care of. However, it was only a matter of a few days before some of the men were on the sick and injured list. Men who had the previous year been the mainstays of the team were unable to come out because of heavy scholastic work, and the new men proved unusually light, with very little line material, which was needed most of all. All this, coupled with the necessity of hurried preparations for the first game, only a month away, hindered the preliminary work of the new men. The lack of time had further complicated conditions by forcing a postponenemt of the Freshman-Sophomore game until the last of the season, and the value of a number of the new men was not discovered until late in the season.VV. Hallmark. End. While out of the game until Thanksgiving, Hallmark has demonstrated what a man can do by staying on the job. He is a great defensive as well as a good offensive man, and next year will no doubt find him with a regular berth. He showed a good knowledge of the game and with the additional experience gained from next year ought to be one of the best.
E. J. Renaud. Half. “Rube’' showed a great improvement in his work this year. His previous experience stood him in good stead and it could well be said that he was a valuable man to any team. Never flashy, he has always been dependable, and his ability to play any position made him all the more valuable.
Asa Porter. Left half; captain. Captain Porter led the Wildcats in a manner that showed his great loyalty for Arizona and the team. Asa was the unanimous choice for captain of the “All Southwestern." He not only played a game that did him credit but he kept that spirit of fight in the men who worked with him. Our only regret—he graduates this year.
Harry Turvey. Left tackle. Turvey was a bulwark on defense and a good man at opening up the opponent’s line. His position at tackle was a new one to him, but he handled it very nicely and his excellent work gained for him a place on the “All Southwestern" this year.
William McGowan. Right guard. Bill was a first-year man, but he Showed up well through the season. He proved himself to be a reliable man at all times and a punter of ability. Bill should show real class with one more year of seasoning.Orville McPherson. Full back. Mac was greatly handicapped by an injury early in the season but returned in time to be of great help to the team. IIis real ability is greater than was demonstrated in his work this year and we are looking for him to return to his old-time form next year and again be one of the greatest backs in the Southwest.
Carter Porter. Guard. Carter was one of the very few Freshmen who had the honor of making his letter. While light for a line man, he showed that he was able to hold his own against the best of them. With more experience he should make Arizona one of the best.
Coacii McKale. Take a man with natural ability as an athlete; a pleasing personality; a born leader; a big thinker, and a small talker, and you have Coach McKale. He came to Arizona because the students wanted and needed him. He has truly put Arizona on the athletic map and is worthy of all the praise he has received. He has made his men fighters for glory and they have won in a clean and manly way. If there is one man who is universally admired, respected, and appreciated by the students, faculty, and friends of Arizona, it is “ Mac.”
Emzy Lynch. Center. Emzy was the same consistent passer and defensive man that he was last year. He has the distinction of never having made a bad pass in a game. Big and capable, a little more experience should make him the best in the Southwest.
Richard Brackenbury. Right half. “Brack” proved to be a very dependable man and played consistent ball all year. He played at Colorado last year and had good knowledge of the game from the first. He will make Arizona an excellent man next year with added experience and confidence.MU S CJkRPCNTCR PICKRCll 9CCt.tr tut
Job Huss. Full back. In the absence of McPherson, Huss filled this position with credit. Lack of experience kept Joe from being a sensation, hut his work was of the steady type. Big and fast, he ought to make Arizona a great back-field man if he returns next season.
IIaroi.d Carpenter. Guard. “Carp” had his first experience in college class this year and was the most dependable guard we had. “Carp” had no equal when it came to plugging up that line. Light but fast, he will make a valuable man next year.
W. W. Pickreli,, Manager. “Pick” proved a man of ability in handling the managerial reins. He made the season a financial success, a big feat in southwestern football.
George Seeley. Left end. Seeley played his first year as a regular on the Varsity and was always there fighting. Fast, a deadly tackier, a sure receiver of forward passes, a good interference man, and a fighter, he has made Arizona a steady and competent man in every department.
F. A. Luis. Right half. Luis, while not playing the great game he played last year, was a great help to the team. He could always be depended on to pull the unexpected, and his ability to diagnose the opponent's play was almost uncanny. His long service to the team made him a man of exceptional experi ence and his natural ability was not of the common sort.CftAWrOHO
A. Crawford.- Quarter. “Bumps” was hindered all season by sickness. He showed real Arizona Spirit by playing oftentimes when he should not have been on the field, as far as the doctors were concerned. “Bumps "is an old-timer and has always shown excellent ability. He has been the best we had at running back punts, and his work at this was at times sensational.
J. Vinton IIammels. Right End. “Brutus” hasbeena much improved man this year and has been dependable at all times. Hammels is the most consistent receiver of the forward pass that Arizona has ever boasted of. His weight stood him in good stead and made it possible for consistent gains around his end. Was coach’s choice of All-Southwestern.
William Hendry. Right tackle. Captain elect. Bill was the star of the Whittier game. It is safe to say that as a defense man he has no equal in the Southwest. lie is a student of the game and a natural player and always to be depended upon in an emergency. Great things are expected of you next year, Bill.
x Turner Smith. Tackle. Turner, last year’s captain, has been a help to the boys by his consistent work in every department of the game. While not a brilliant player, Turner could always be depended on to do his part,and a thorough knowledge of the game, gained through threee years on the Varsity, made him a man of worth. This is Turner’s last year and we lose a good man who has shown that his best is for Arizona.
Richard Meyer. Quarter. Dicky was the same old peppery player as last year when he won the distinction of being the best in the Southwest. Dick was one of the hardest lacklers on the Varsity and made a defensive full back. He is a Sophomore and will be able to give us his services for at least two years longer.SCENES FROM THE WHITTIER GAMEThe Games
THE POMONA GAME
In one of the fastest and hardest fought games on the Coast that year Arizona defeated the Sage-Hens by the very small score of 7-3. It was a game of the new school. Old-time football was forgotten and the aerial game played after the first ten minutes of play. Neither side seemed to be able to overcome the line of the other, and the end runs of both teams were failures; in fact, for a time it seemed that the end must be a scoreless tie. It was in the second quarter when, with the ball on the 35-vard line, and Pomona unable to gain, that Dahlen, the giant tackle for Pomona, dropped back and sent a well executed place kick squarely between the bars for the first score of the game. I'or a moment Arizona seemed stunned. She had been playing a wonderful defensive game, and the knowledge that Pomona had a man who could place kick from almost any part of the field caused no amount of worry. It is without a doubt that this score won the game or Arizona. As one of the Coast scribes said of the game from then on, “Arizona seemed to get over their tired look and the change of climate seemed no longer to worry them and they became a new team.” Arizona no longer tried the tiresome game of line plunging and end runs which up to this time had only gained a few yards. They began a series of brilliant forward passes, with Porter on the projecting end and Seeley and Haminels on the receiving end. These plays seemed to take Pomona by surprise and they seemed unable to stop them. In fact, Arizona went from one end of the field to the other on a series of these plays. It was then that Seeley received a pass of 35 yards, and, by a brilliant open field run, managed to take the ball over for the first and only touchdown of the game. Porter kicked goal. From then on the game was one of chance, Arizona playing a tight defensive game and Pomona taking every kind of risk in their attempt to get a score. Forward passes were of no avail, as the Arizona backs proved to be on the job at all times and broke up many brilliant attempts when success seemed almost imminent. It was a hard game for Pomona to lose, and Arizona could not but feel that she had with her on that day just a little of the good luck which failed all the remainder of the season. It was too close a game to say which team had the best organization. It was a thriller, and the Wildcats brought home a well-earned victory.
THE AGGIE GAME
The outcome of the Aggie game is still bitter medicine and cannot be accepted as cheerfully as the later game with Whittier. Somehow it seemed that the “jinx” wished himself on the team, and from this time on there was nothing but the very worst of luck. The score of 3-0 with New Mexico on the heavy end was one of the hardest games to lose that the Varsity has ever played. There is no doubt in the minds of every man who played or saw that game but that Arizona outplayed their opponents from start to finish, and fumbles at costly moments robbed us of scores andgave the Aggies their chance to win. It is true that the men did not play thegame which was characteristic at Pomona, but for the most part it was good football. The only score of the game was made under almost impossible circumstances when Ladd of the Aggies kicked an almost impossible goal from the 40-yard line in the face of a heavy wind. Arizona made most of her gains on forward passes and in the fourth quarter carried the ball to the 10-yard line on a series which the Aggies seemed unable to fathom. With only ten yards to go for a touchdown, the whistle blew and sounded our defeat after the hardest fought battle ever staged in New Mexico and seldom equaled on any gridiron. The dope shows Arizona making twice as many yards as the New' Mexico team, not only on forward passes but also on end runs and line plunging. Just that one kick after Arizona had fumbled on the first down gave them the chance and they took advantage of it. In the fourth quarter, just before the whistle blew,Arizona had a chance for a place kick to tie the score, but preferred to take their chance to win with a touchdown, which seemed imminent. Porter was given the ball, and although he made ten yards on the play, was not able to take it over, and before another could be tried the whistle had been blown and the game was over. •
THE WHITTIER GAME
The game with Whittier Thanksgiving Day was the greatest game since the game the year before with Pomona here at the same time. Arizona lost another game, but she lost it to men who w-eli deserved to win, and for this game Arizona offers no excuses. We were playing against the greatest machine in California, and it w-as soon seen after the game began that the best that Arizona could hope for was to score. The final score of 23-0, with Whittier on the long end, marks the relative strength of the two teams. It was a case of a good big team playing a good little team, and in that case the big team always wins. However, the game was full of thrills from start to finish, and there has certainly never been a game played here that was so full of interest to the spectators. They saw the most powerful football machine in California under the leadership of one of the best field generals in the country, hurl itself down the field for three touchdowns, and they saw this same man who led this team, calmly place the ball between the bars from the 45-yard line with apparent ease. Capt. Pogue with his team of wonders were too much; but Arizona could play as she had never done before, and desperately fought every inch of the way, at times pulling plays that were spectacular and playing a defensive game time after time when their goal was in danger that was wonderful to see. The great weight and the uncanny plays of the visitors at last tore down the stubborn resistance of Arizona and Whittier crossed the line three times before the end of the game. We can not help but admire the spirit of these men in victory, but we can all the more admire the spirit of.the men who had lost; who had fought until they dropped from sheer exhaustion but who still had the manly and sportsmanlike qualities of the acceptance of defeat in a manner which we hope will always characterize those who represent Arizona in her relations with other schools of the Southwest or wherever they may be.Basketball
CAPTAIN "SCISSORS" SESSIONSbasketball team
Brackenbury, G. Phelps, I '- McKale (Coach) Leshcr, F. McSherry, F. Sessions (Capt.) Maffeo, G.
The basketball season opened with three of the Varsity Five of the previous year out for their old places and an abundance of new men who showed unusual class, predicting that the Varsity of 1915- 16 was to be a strong,fast aggregation.
The interclass games, which formally opened the season, brought out the keenest kind of competition, with the Juniors and Seniors fighting it out for the championship. In the final game with the Sophomores the .Seniors were victorious, while the Juniors, losing to the Freshmen, lost all chance and dropped back into second place with two games lost. This was the fourth successive year that the Senior team had succeeded in winning the Savage Duncan banquet given each year to the winning class team, and the brand of basketball played by them was of real Varsity caliber.
The first game of the season was played with the strong Native Son team, of San Francisco, who, while making a trip to the Fast, had contracted for a game here. The Varsity, although organized only a few days before the game, showed wonderful early season form and had little trouble in defeating them in a rough game by a score of 25-17.
The first practice game with the Tucson High School was played shortly before the men left for the holidays and proved a hummer, as the High .School had developed a fast aggregation and showed wonderful form for so early in the season. The final score of 44-16 marks a hard-fought game where experience and team play won over inexperience and determination.
It was a disappointment to the fans that a game with the Bisbee Y. M. C. A. could not be played on the Varsity Floor. A game had been scheduled, but at the last moment conditions made it impossible for them to come, and a substitution of the Phoenix Y. M. C. A. was secured. The heavy floods in the valley, however, had cut off all communication with Phoenix and this team also was unable to come. Rather than disappoint the fans who had been looking forward to these games, the Tucson Y. M. C. A. offered a game, which proved a worthy substitute, the Varsity winning after one of the roughest and hardest fought games ever played on this floor by a score of 25-12. This was a great contrast with the game played some weeks previous on the floor of the Y. M. C. A., where the Varsity in a very one-sided game had defeated the Y by a score of 51-12. In this last game the Y men played a defensive game which was impossible to overcome, and time after time the plays of the Varsity were broken up by the continual nagging of the Y men, who, not trying to score themselves, were trying to keep the score as low as possible. In the second half the training of the Varsity enabled them to play the Y off their feet by brilliant pass work, and in this half most of the scores were made.
A game was secured with the Douglas Y. M. C. A. team as an end to the season, and this game was really the best exhibition that was played on thehome floor this year. Douglas brought up a team well trained and with the determination to win. For the first half the score was about even and in the first part of the second half neither team seemed able to score, but when the time was almost up the Varsity opened up and by brilliant team work succeeded in running up quite a score. The final score was 32-40 and marked the best game played here this season.Baseball
CAPTAIN "DUD” BROWNThe Season
Everyone was gratified at the opening of the season to see practically all the old men out and an abundance of new material that was most promising. With Porter and McGowan to take care of the twirling, ably backed up by Meyer as catcher, in addition to five of last year A men, the prospects were unusual for a most successful season.
The wonderful climate of Tucson and the early summer enabled Arizonans to get an early start, and in February the men were out each afternoon getting in form for the early season games that had been scheduled with the Valley teams. This early season training stood us in good stead against the teams of first-class caliber and no doubt had much to do with our later victory over the strong Chinese University Team of Hawaii for the first time since these teams have been stopping here for a game on their way east.
The Varsity was lucky in having the City team to play each Saturday afternoon, and this team, supplemented by the High School and All Star teams, composed of both, gave us real competition. The first game of the season with the City team was the only game Arizona lost, when her men, unaccustomed to the places they were playing, were unable to overcome the lead gained by the leaguers in the early part of the game. McKale was using all his men, and the score,book shows several men playing in each position.
The annual trip to the Salt River Valley proved a very successful one, although it was disappointing to the fans that a game with the Indian School was impossible, their dates having already been arranged. Games, however, were arranged with Tempe Normal, which held the championship of the valley, and with the Tempe High School, which had won the interscholastic championship the previous year and was reported to have a better team than ever.
The first game with the High School proved fast and interesting and ended with Arizona having a 3-0 advantage. It was in this game that Porter established a new State record for strikeouts, with 22 to his credit. All the men showed up well except in their hitting, which was hardly up to form.
The Normal game proved a closer one than the High School game and was featured by heavy hitting and brilliant fielding on the part of both teams. McGowan pitched a very creditable game and the final victory of 3-1 was deserved.
The entertainment at the Normal was of the best. A dance was given the boys and attended by the best of the fair sex of the institution. With three hundred girls to pick from there is hardly a doubt but the boys had the time of their lives.
For the past three years the University of Hawaii teams have stopped in Tucson for two games each year and had succeeded up to this year in defeating the Varsity in every game. The Varsity was traveling at top speed after its valley trip and games with other local clubs and was playing real baseball when these games were played. In the first game, with McGowan pitching, the Varsity annexed a clean-cut victory by heavy hitting and brilliant fielding, by a score of 5-4. The fielding of Porter, playing second, who accepted sixdifficult chances without a bobble, and the hitting of Kriegbaum, who annexed a home run, a triple, and a single, were features of the game.
In the second game the Varsity did not show such form as on the previous day. Ragged fielding and inability to hit when hits meant runs gave the Chinese the game by a score of G 0. The University felt, however, almost satisfied with the one victory, as it told of the strength of the team as compared with the other larger colleges in the Hast and on the Coast.
Tempe Normal in their return game on April 1 started things by getting a safe lead for the time being, when an error coupled with two hits sent in two runs. The Varsity came back strong, however, and overcame the lead and knocked the Tempe pitcher off the rubber, Chase going in to take his place. This change failed to remedy matters and the Varsity continued to hit when hits counted and ran up a score of 6-3. McGowan pitched an excellent game and Porter, who had taken Hallmark’s place behind the bat, caught his first game of the season in excellent manner. This closed the season, which marked one of the most successful seasons for years and showed that Arizona had a real team, one which could compete with any and make an excellent showing.

CAPTAIN KRItCUAUMThe Season
Track this year has taken on a new aspect and become a recognized activity at Arizona. For years it has been the dream of the track enthusiasts to see Arizona in competition with other Southwestern or California colleges in this activity. This is, however, the first year that she has had the chance to take the iniative and set a mark for future years.
The completion of the new Athletic Field has given Arizona the best track in the Southwest and made it possible to afford adequate accommodations to visiting teams. The introduction of the season ticket and general condition of the athletic fund, which was unusually good this year, made possible a great Southwestern track and field meet, held here on May 6, and bringing together the University of New' Mexico, New Mexico Aggies, Texas School of Mines, and Arizona. It was in this meet that Arizona showed her superiority to all comers in this activity, making more points than the other three teams combined and breaking several State and University records.
When the invitations w'ere issued for this meet they included all the acknowledged institutions in the Southwest of higher standing than high schools. This brought in the normal schools of the three States. Objections were raised, however, and in the end all institutions not having recognized college standing were not admitted.
The Student Body of the University took this meet more seriously than any athletic event in some time. The men were out months ahead of time training, and this showed to great advantage when the final test came.
The records for the State which were broken in this meet were, high jump, by White, U. N. M., 5 feet G% inches; hundred-yard dash by Porter of Arizona in 10 flat; two mile by Claybourne of U. N. M., 10 minutes 28 seconds; relay by the University of Arizona team in 3.36 2-5; the State record was tied in the pole vault by Comstock of Arizona and White of U. N. M. at 10 feet 6 inches; the University records in the 440-yard dash, 220-yard dash, mile run, and hammer throw were also broken.
Arizona in this meet took all three of the cups offered; the large silver cup, offered to the team making the highest number of points; the copper cup, made of Arizona copper, won by the relay team, composed of Comstock, O’Keefe, Kreigbaum, and Ilaughtelin; and the cup for the individual making the highest number of points, won by Porter. The success of this team composing the Varsity speaks well for future track athletics at Arizona and it is hoped that next year this meet will be repeated.
The cross-country meet held at Tucson on February 22 found the University again winning all prizes and a beautiful loving cup offered by Mr. Brannen each year. While cross-country is considered a minor sport and not classed with track, the men were awarded winged A’s, which, though not a track letter, gives them recognition for their services.SCENES FROM THE SOUTHWESTERN INTER-collegiate track and field meetCROSS-COUNTRY TEAM
The men who made their letters in the track meet on May G in competition against New Mexico University, New Mexico Aggies, and Texas School of Mines, and the number of points made by each man are as follows:
Points ... 15 14 ... 6 ... 7
... 6 ... 5
... 1 ... 1
There is no sport on the campus which attracts so much interest for the Student Body as tennis. The warm climate the year round and the many sunshiny days attract all those who are unable to put in their time on other sports but prefer to spend their spare moments in this activity. To supplement the natural interest aroused, the University has four excellent courts, which arc kept in the best of condition all the year round and can be compared with any courts in this section.
It is not difficult to get first-class competition in this sport, as the Tucson Tennis Club, the Inter-State Annual Meet, the Border States Meet, and teamsCOif
representing the Evans School at Mesa, Phoenix High, Tempe Normal, and Tucson High are all representatives of the best of tennis.
Each year the teams representing the University enters these various competitive meets and play the schools named a series, this taking up practically the whole year.
The valley trip, which brought us into competition with Evans, Tempe Normal, and phoenix High, was a most successful one. The Evans School managed to win their match, but the other two matches were easily won by the Varsity, composed of Hammels, Cole, Westover, and Porter.
It was on this trip that the Varsity annexed one more cup for a period of one year when they again won the Taylor cup offered in 1910 for the purpose of stimulating interest in this State for tennis, especially among the University and high schools. At that time the University was a small institution and, competition being scarce, competed with Phoenix High in a number of sports. Mr. Taylor stipulated that this cup must be won three successive times to become the permanent property of the institution holding it. The first match in 1910 proved to be the last until this year, when relations were resumed, and for the second time the cup has come home, and by this time next year should be the permanent property of the University.
Mr. Tenney Williams has this year offered a beautiful loving cup to that man who wins the majority of the four elimination tournaments arranged forthis purpose during the year. Up to this time Dudley Brown and Dave Cole each have a tournament to their credit and the third lies between Hammels and Brown, the match to be played off soon. The final match for this cup will be played beginning the second week in May.
The ladies of the University have formed a tennis club and have had several matches with visiting teams and with local organizations, always giving a good account of themselves. This year Miss Murphey and Miss Pistor are entered in the Border States Meet in the singles and Miss Murphey and Miss Ilankins as a double team. These teams should give a good account of themselves, as they are capable of the best.
The return games with Evans and Tempe Normal the first week in March and the last week in April, respectively, resulted in victories for the Varsity. These games closed the competition with outside schools and preparations were then made for the Borders States Meet the first week in May.Letter Men for 1915-1916

Burying the Hatchet
After a year of strenuous warfare the classes of 1917 and 1918 met in the Woman’s Leauge Morgue on June 1, 1915, to say the last rites over the “War Hatchet.” Reverend Benjamin McClure officiated with the prayer book while Undertaker F. R. Duffy wielded the hammer and closed the casket forever. Interment was held in the Nevergreen Cemetery of the campus and amid the strains of “Here Comes the Bride”the funeral procession wended its way tb the final resting place of our beloved hatchet. Rev. McClure read the following from the Book of Sophomore as the remains were interred forever in cement:
And now it came to, pass during the reign of Rufus, Prince of the Nations, the first year of his reign, the first month of the year, and the twenty-second day of the month—Ida being at this time the Queen of the Amazons -that the Sons of the Freshmen gathered themselves together to seek new homes. From every hill and countryside of Arizona they came under their great King, even King Skinny. And lo! this gathering of the Sons of the Freshmen was past numbering for multitude, as the stars of the firmament for number, and moreover their ranks were wondrous motley. All sorts of men belonged to the Sons of the Freshmen. There was with them that sky-piercing beanpole Jenny, and Woo, small as the burro (and his voice also like • the burro for its great music); and Brute, and Rogers and Russel, mighty men of war, like to the mighty Sahuara for strength. There were also with the Sons of the Freshmen some Negros and Chinese, and a great multitude of Germans and Irish, and White people. And lo! all these Sons of the Freshmen took up their tents, and together with their cattle and their wives and little ones, and came to the land of Campus.
And now the Land of Campus was already peopled with a race of men— the Sophomores. Few in number was the race, but lo! they were as a race of for strength. And the Sophomores had a mighty King at this time, even King Bumps. And lo, there was not a goodlier king on all the earth. As cunning as King David was King Bumps.
And now the Sophomores were wondrous wroth that the Sons of the Freshmen should seek to rob them of their lands, and they arose and smote the sons of the Freshmen with a great slaughter. And the Sons of the Freshmen smote the Sophomores, and there waged in the Land of Campus a mighty war and the desert was covered with gore.
And now it came to pass one night—after the Sons of the Freshmen had been a little while in the Land of Campus—about the eleventh hour of the night, as I was sleeping on my couch, that one came and shook me rudely by the head, and I awaked and beheld standing over me Bruce, the son of Hannah. And he said unto me, “Arise quickly; the Sons of the Freshmen are upon us!” And I arose. Albeit I would not go with him till I had girdled on my day garments, for it is not seemly that men go abroad in their night garments. And I went to the assembly place of the Sophomores, and there were many Sophomores and much and long was the council which they held, and the leaders took counsel what they should do; the men—being weary to the pointTHE WAR ENDS
of death—slept. And I saw sleeping there that night the great Sophomore
man of valor—Sampson the son of Robbins, even he whose nose is three cubits in length (albeit it is a comely nose) and whose hair is as black as the raven.
Then King Bumps sent unto the Sons of the Freshmen, and demanded of them their ten mightiest men of valor. And the herald of the Sons of the Freshmen, even Turvy, the Red, came unto the camp of the Sophomores. Now Turvey the Red is a strong man and he hath a marvellous stout heart, albeit when he stood in the presence of the Sophomores he was sorely afraid. And his knees smote one against the other, and his loins were unloosened, so greatly afraid did he wax. And Turvey the Red spake, saying, “ We will not give over our ten mightiest men of valor,” and he returned to hiS camp.
And that same night the Sophomores made war against the Sons of the Freshmen and slew many of them, and took away many captives.
And after these things a treaty was signed and peace reigned in the Land of Campus for many months.
And, behold, one night in the spring of the year, it being about examination time, King Skinny was in his tent studying a little. And suddenly one entered his room and said “Oh, King, live forever. A feast is prepared for you in Arizona Hall.” And now Skinny is a very wicked man, and one that thinketh only of his stomach, and seeing in his mind’s eye all manners ofcostly viands, he arose and followed the messenger. And waiting in lurk hard by were the Sophomores, and there were many of the Sophomores, and they seized King Skinny and bound him in strong fetters, even as a butcher binds a pig, and carried him to the cave of Machpela, which is in the desert, and King Skinny slept with his fathers.
And now on the next day the Sons of the Freshmen had planned to make merry even with song and new wine, and when they found their valiant king was gone, they waxed wondrous wroth and all day long—after the coming of the sun—they strove to take King Bumps at the mill and they fain would have taken him captive, but King Bumps hid himself in a box that was hard by, and was saved. And the Sons of the Freshmen left, and, after many hours King Bumps came forth, and did run with all his might to the Temple of Science, which is as a city of refuge to him. And he entered into the Temple of Science, into one of the strongest rooms, and did shut the door after him, and he made fast the lock, and surrounded himself with many knives and guns. And King Bumps also gathered together huge flasks of acids (for he hath much skill in the use of these things), saying to himself “ I will hurl these into the faces of the Sons of the Freshmen when they come to take me, even as men on the battlement pour burning pitch into the faces of the assailants.” Albeit the Sons of the Freshmen came not and King Bumps was saved.
Now, Rufus, Prince of the Nations, is a mighty King and hath more power and far goodlier armies than both King Skinny and King Bumps together, and— about the going down of the sun on the same day—he called these two smaller Kings, and spake thus unto them through his herald: “To you it is com-
manded, Oh, all people, nations, and languages that whosoever shall make any disturbance or disorder in the Land of Campus, as long as the Sanhedrin in Phoenix shall stay in session, even that man who doeth so—together with his wives and children—shall be driven from the Land of Campus onto the desert forever.”
And King Skinny and King Bumps swore a great oath to Rufus, prince of the Nations, that they would do as he had commanded.
And lo! King Bumps was wondrous glad of this, and every night he prayed, saying, “Oh, Lord, may the Sanhedrin stay in session forever.” And now King Bumps is a righteous King, and one that doth fear God exceedingly, and walketh upright in his ways, for reasons of these things his prayer prevailed nightly before the throne of heaven, and even unto this day the Sanhedrin is still sitting. Thus was King Bumps saved by his faith in God.
Albeit the Sons of the Freshmen kept not their oath which they swore unto Rufus, Prince of the Nations, and they did much devilment in the Land of Campus, and it doth not appear what Rufus will do unto them.
Many other things did the Sons of Freshmen and the Sophomores in the Land of Campus which are not written in this book. If all which they did was written in this book, or in books, I suppose not even the world itself.would contain the books that would be written.
But the Sons of the Freshmen and the Sophomores have determined to make war with each other no more, and this day hath been appointed for the burying the hatchet of war.
Thus endeth the reading of the Book of Sophomore.The College Year
Annual Hair-Clipping Bee, Sept. 17, 1915.—Through the generosity of the ever-obliging Sophs haircuts to suit the most fastidious were dealt out to the long-haired Frosh, who were huddled in a corner of South Hall like a flock of innocent lambs being shorn of their fleecy locks.
Faculty Reception, Sept. 25.—The Faculty entertained in honor of the Board of Regents, new members of the Faculty, and the students, with a reception on the lawn in front of University Hall. The affair was a thoroughly enjoyable one, characteristic of all given by the Faculty, and afforded a splendid opportunity to welcome the newcomers to the campus.
Y. M. C. A. Stag, Sept. 27.—Here’s another regular. Tots of the old-life, good cheer, and fun in evidence. The Young Men’s Christian Association furnished the eats for the men only.
Big Pajama Parade, Oct. 1.—It was composed of a great big, rollicking crew of male students in their evening clothes of soft flannels. They awoke the Old Pueblo from center to circumference with their cheers and songs for U. of A. and the Varsity.
Prexy Honored, Oct. 12.—The work of our distinguished President, Dr. R. B. von KleinSmid, in the field of criminology, again met with national recognition in his election to the presidency of the American Association of Clinical Criminology.
Wildcats Victorious, Oct. 23.—The biggest victory of the season’. The Wildcats entered the enemy’s country and scratched a glorious victory from Pomona with a score of 7 to 3.
Varsity Greeted, Oc . 25.—The return of the Varsity from its Southern California trip will long be remembered. Enthusiasm was at its highest. The victorious team was met at the station by a wildly-cheering bunch of loyal sons and daughters of Arizona, and, unique in the annals of the campus, a holiday was declared. The rally dance that followed helped to send the "Greater Arizona” spirit soaring.
Sentinel Peak "A ” Begun, Nov. IS.—With the splendid cooperation of the business men of Tucson, necessary funds for the work of building Arizona’s letter on the mountainside were raised, and the gigantic task was undertaken in earnest.
Pajamarino Rally and Jazzum Shuffle, Nov. 20.—The great Thanksgiving Day Game was heralded far and wide by the stupendous pajamarino rally and bonfire held on the night of the 20th. The Frosh were there with a strong blaze and the jazz faucets were wide open at the outdoor vaudeville. The gym ■ bubbled over with pep and spirit at the Jazzum Shuffle where everyone romped later in the evening.
Quakers Banqueted, Nov. 25.—The victors in the Thanksgiving Day game, the Whittier "Quakers,” were banqueted by the Wildcats and made to feel the welcome of Arizona’s hospitality. A good "Big Team” had defeated a good "Little Team,” and the latter proved that it knew how to accept defeat as well as victory.

Masquerade Dance, Dec. 7.—The annual Sigma Pi Alpha Masquerade was attended by people from all over the globe and from every walk in life. Costumes plain, gaudy, beautiful, homely, indescribable, and unspeakable were in evidence. A student body affair looked forward to each year with pleasure.
“V” Student Conference, Dec. 22.—Arizona enjoys the distinction of having its “Y” conference delegates sent farther than those of any other school in the West. The Young Men’s Christian Association this year sent three men to the conference at Asilomar, Cal. They were Kriegbaum, Ruppert, and Tong.
Mining Building Campaign Started, Jan. 28, 1916.—Another magnificent and much-needed building is now assured for the campus, due to the efforts of President von KleinSmid. The State legislature appropriated the sum of 875,000 for a mining building provided that $75,000 could be raised by the University. In a whirlwind campaign among the mining syndicates of the Hast, Dr. von KleinSmid was successful in raising $100,000, and the new building thus became assured.
Gamma Deltas Entertain, Feb. 6.—The student body was royally entertained by the Gamma Delta Sorority on the occasion of its annual dance. Old Herring Hall was never more beautifully decorated. It became a gorgeousTHE COLLEGE VEAR
AT THE NEW POOL
patio with tall, white pillars entwined with ivy and yellow morning glories placed at intervals around the hall, and extending over the top was a lattice work of garlands of greenery, forming a canopy on which sparkling snow was sprinkled. Attractive programs of green leather and gold cords embossed with the insignia of the sorority were used. The most novel feature of this charming affair was the favor dance with Japanese sparklers.
“College Night” at Opera House, Feb. 14-—Univsreity talent ran riot on the sacred boards of the Opera House on this very night. Nothing but high class vaudeville got by and the top liner was billed as the second shooting of Dan McGrew. Some say that Dan was “egged on ” for this second appearance, but we have not yet been able to verify the report. A crowded house was out to enjoy the work of the student stars.
Work on New Field and Track, Feb. 21.—The dirt began to fly when twenty scrapers were set to work to prepare the biggest and best athletic field in the Southwest. When fully completed, Arizona will have a field and quarter-mile track of which she may be justly proud:
Military Ball, Feb. 22.—One of'the gala events of the year. U. of A.’s mighty army was well represented, from the Colonel to the Sergeant, on the happy celebration of the birth of the original advocate of “ Preparedness.” The "A" Completed, March 4.—Early on the morning of the 4th every man who could possibly go was taken to Sentinel Peak in order that the w’ork on the mammoth “A” might be completed. Fully one hundred and fifty men answered the call of President Condron of the Student Body, anxious thatTHE COLLEGE YEAR
they might have a hand in the building of the monument that stands for the true Arizona spirit of Action and Achievement. Shortly after noon the last foot of the immense letter had received its coat of whitewash and the Student Body had completed its greatest work in the history of the University. Every man and woman of Arizona may feel justly proud of this work, probably the largest of its kind in the country. Glittering white in the bright sunlight on Sentinel Peak, it is visible for miles around. It is something worth while. It will last throughout the years. May it bring to every student who follows the banner of the Wildcat an inspiration and a reverence and love for that for which it stands—Arizona, our Alma Mater.
Debaters Win from U. S. C., March 4-—Another brilliant victory was brought home from the Arizona-U. S. C. Law debate at Los Angeles, Cal-Arizona’s debaters, J. P. Jones and I'. W. Fickett, surprised the coast lawyers and gave intercollegiate debating an impetus here which will mean its annual, growth and success.
“Aggie Club Dance, April 1.—The jovial farmers again took possession of the gym for their annual “ Wild Oats" frolic. The “ hoc-down” of the Agricultural Club is looked forward to as one of the most enjoyable informal affairs of the year, and the “Rain-worshippers" know’ no limit in their preparations for making their guests happy.
Junior Piny. April 5.—“The Amazons,” chosen this year by the Class of 191? as the annual play, was one of the best amateur performances ever seen in Tucson. In this farce comedy by Pinero the girls of the class were calledPICNICSTHE COMEGE YEAR
upon for some very difficult work, which was handled in a very praiseworthy manner. The entire cast deserves great credit for its work, and the Junior
Class may well feel proud of its production. The members of the cast included Orville McPherson, Albert Rubel, Cedric Scheerer, C. Zaner Lesher, Ernest Renaud, Floyd G. Fisk, Hans Harders, Mabel Odell, Mae Jolly. Esther Wright, Nydia Acker, Josephine Waters.
University Week, A pril 12-15.—The biggest and best yet. Practically all of the high schools of the State sent their representatives to join in the scholastic and athletic events held during the week. A big booster for the University and one that will bring an increasing number of students from within the State with each succeeding year. Every courtesy was extended the visitors and every effort expended to make their stay as pleasant as possible.
Cadet Battalion Encampment and Inspection, April 11-15.—“Forced” marches were the rule this year in place of the usual week’s encampment at Phoenix. The foothills were used as a field for practical battle problems and the rifle range for daily practice. The two hikes to the hills were led by the colonel himself upon a prancing steed, and woe befell him who sought to desert or even to shorten the distance by means of a lift from a passing wagon. Captain Tenny Ross was very much pleased with the appearance of the battalion at his annual inspection, and after a close competitive drill awarded the honor of best-drilled company to Company 1)., commanded by Captain Dudley Brown.
Midsummer Night's Dream, April 22.—Another splendid success for the University due to the untiring efforts of Miss Chapin and the Woman’s League. The natural beauty of West Cottage lawn, its trees and shrubbery were used to good advantage in a beautiful production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in honor of the tercentenary of the Bard of Avon. The presentation of the play showed marked ability on the part of all the participants, and reflects much credit on those who were instrumental in making it a success.
Texas-U. A. Debate, May 1.—Though not victorious in their debate with Texas, the representatives of Arizona had a wonderful argument prepared and were defeated only by the greater experience of their opponents. Barnard and Westover deserve much credit for their work against the old heads of Texas and give much promise for success in future debates with the Longhorns.
lunior Day, May 4-—It means a real holiday, with the planting of the Junior tree, a long, rollicking hay-ride, with fine feed out in the open, the ducking of the class president, and many other novel features that go to make up a perfect day for the Class of 1017. Bear Canyon was selected as the site for the picnic, and a better place could not be found. A day that will long be remembered by those who were able to enjoy it.
Southwestern Track and Field Meet, May 0. —One of the big athletic events of the year. A glorious victory for the Wildcats in their first intercollegiate track and field meet to be held on the new athletic field. Competition was keen and a number of new records were hung up. New Mexico Aggies, University of New Mexico, and the Texas School of Mines competed againstTHE COLLEGE YEAR
Arizona. The meet is expected to become an annual event and Arizona looks forward to a brilliant future in track.
New Swimming Pool Dedicated, May 8.—Splash! It’s here at last. A real benefactor that we’ve been waiting for. There was a large crowd on hand to see Prexy as he turned the wheel that let a stream of cool, sparkling water flow into the basin of the 40 by 100 foot tank. It looked good—mighty good, in fact—and gave promise of many a refreshing plunge. We’re glad to have it and very grateful to the administration that secured it for us.
Commencement Week, May 27-81.—It came at last and brought the alumni with it. Those old “sojers” who brighten the campus with their pep and enthusiasm and who have a new w'rinkle for all the old dodges. They were very much on the program, the alumni, and aided much in making the week a most successful one and one long to be remembered. The Class of T6, too, still maintained its custom of establishing precedents and left several worthy ones for the classes that follow'. ’lG’s week was a happy way of saying “Adios” to Alma Mater.
CPThe Building of the “A”
Saturday, October 23, 1915, went down in Greater Arizona history, not as the echo of enthusiasm sounding the joy of a football victory, but as a solid masonry of Action and Attainment.
Enthusiasm displayed itself from the moment a telegram gave the joyous news, “Arizona 7, Pomona 3, Great Game,” until after Monday, October 25. Saturday night, after the Student Body had a big dance and bonfire, the undaunted “Pep” spread to the fever of whitewashing a big “A” on the western mountainside. With equipment gathered, jitneys hired, and lime borrowed, the crowd set out to put this idea into effect.
Not until a committee investigated the matter and argued over it would the fellows believe that the idea had more “Pep” than practical or physical foundation. But what was to be done with all that fine lot of whitewash ?
Tucson needed to know and feel the victory, so by artist’s wisdom the painters commenced at the E. P. S. W. depot and spread ”A”s with the score 7-3 upon the pavement. When the S. P. depot had also received its decoration a guard was left to keep incoming morning passengers from marking up the masterpiece.
Inability to place the desired “A” on the mountainside on Saturday night did not cause the plan to be entirely discarded, and on Sunday morning, by a careful investigation of Sentinel Peak it was discovered than an “A” could be permanently built on the steep, rocky side of the mountain.
Now the idea of building the big letter was brought up before the rousing assembly held on the holiday granted upon the home-coming of the victorious Varsity. The plan was introduced at the psychological moment and was accepted by Prexy, Faculty, Student Body, and town friends. Committees from each were appointed for the purpose of engineering, financing, and constructing the big letter. The first work was left to the engineering department of the University; the sepohd to the Faculty, Student Body, and town friends; while the real work of construction was given over to the Student Body.
Engineering was commenced this same day by locating and staking out the symbol aand figuring up the materials and cost. All this developed much as follows:
Location.—Sentinel Peak is three miles from the University. Elevation— 2,885 feet, with the letter built on the hill at a height of 2,776 feet, and lying upon a face that slopes 23'. The location of the Varsity symbol brings it to the attention of all travelers coming to or going from the city, apd may be seen for many miles north, south, east, or west. From the east it may be distinguished as far as Mount Lemmon, 35 miles distant.
Size of “A”—70 feet wide and 160 feet long. The width of legs is 10 feet and the crossbar 20 feet, with the average height of masonry about 2 feet above the ground.
Material—The construction was done by cleaning the location of all shrubbery, digging trenches to outline the letter and to serve as a foundation for the masonry, which was built up from the rock at hand and from mortarBUILDING THE "Ahauled up the steep side of the mountain by six-horse teams. The several large tanks of water necessary for mixing with the sixty sacks of cement used was brought up to the location under the same difficulties. The total masonry constructed and whitewashed covers 6,500 square feet.
Cost-—The total cost of materials, equipment, and transportation reached the large sum of $397.00, nearly half of which was liberally subscribed by loyal town friends and the balance by the Studet Body, Faculty, and organizations of the University.
Construction—Actual constriucton work commenced on Saturday, November 13, 1915, and was carried out under many difficulties and discouragements, until finally finished on "A" Day, March 4, 1916. However, the entire construction was accomplished by the will and spirit of the University men and women, and those who aided in this work may point to their "A” with a feeling of pride. Among the many loyal supporters of Arizona who gave their services in the building of her letter, none is more deserving of praise than Student Body President A. II. Condron. To "Al” must go a great deal.of the credit for the completion of this splendid work. His tireless efforts and boundless energy were needed in leading such a work, which now may stand as a monument to a most successful administration.

Here and There
If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don’t you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know, do not Particularly please.
If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn’t care to know.
But here’s another question, which Requires a different view—
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?
When the Boy Gets Back.—When our son returns from college and sits down to breakfast, he may say very learnedly, 41 Pass the pepper and sodium chloride”; he may satirically compare the Citizen with William Shakespeare; state that he has proved the law of gravitation when he spills gravy down the front of his corduroy vest; may say that he is the ultimate consumer of muffins, which would tempt only the fire-cake eaters of Valley Forge. But we can teach him some table manners.
Esther W.—‘‘Got an exam tomorrow?”

Reporter—“And in what state were you born, Professor Foster?” Professor (learnedly) “Unless my recollection fails me, young man—in the state ojf ignorance.”
Reporter—(scribbling) “Ah, yes, to be sure—and how long have you lived there, Professor?”
John—“Are you familiar with John Mansfield?”
Inez—“What do you mean? I'm never familiar with any one."
I’d rather be a Could Be,
If I could not be an Are;
For a Could Be is a May Be,
With a chance of touching par.

For a Might Have Been has never been,
But a Has Been was once an Are.

Barber—“Any special way?”

Basketball is a winter sport,

And then She Blushed—A party of strangers were visiting at the University. It was late in the fall and the air was crisp and cold. One of the members of the party, a charming young woman from Phoenix, was escorted through the grounds by a learned but very much preoccupied professor. Suddenly two members of the track team, accoutered for their sport, passed them.
"It’s dreadfully cold," remarked the young woman, with a dainty shiver as she gazed after the runners, "to be w-ithout stockings."
The professor’s mind, deep in contemplation of the fourth dimension, was attracted by the sound of the girl’s voice.
"Then, why," he asked absently, "did you leave them off?"
Scoop—"The dentist told me that I had a large cavity that needed filling."
Joe Arozena—"Did he recommend any special course of study?”

" Dearest, be mine," said the Mexican lad,
As he knelt on the desert sand;

Cora—“Can you? Well, then, you mustn’t kiss me more than once, dear, because I hear the chaperone coming."
Miss Lyman—“ We are getting up a raffle for an old soldier; won’t you buy a ticket?”
Miss Reid—“Mercy, no! What would I do with him?”

Methinks I saw the working of The kitchen over there.
I saw the food upon the floor;
I saw the cooks in white—
I mean their clothing should have been—
But it was an awful sight.

I wended o’er the way, ,

“Do Clothes Make the Man”
Bruce Barton, in “Every Week,” says: “Its an interesting question.”
“Would the King of England still be every inch a king, if he wore overalls and smoked a clay pipe?”
Mr. Barton further says: “I once talked with a man who had lost two fortunes and is now rich with a third.”
“What did you do when you went broke?” I asked him.
“I borrowed money and bought the finest suit and overcoat in town,” he answered. “I was well enough dressed to hold a job, but to get a job I needed to be uetter dressed than the man I applied to; I wanted that much of an advantage over him.”
Maybe clothes do not make the man—but it is wise to “let the impression of you that your clothes convey be at least as good as you really are—an impression that you can do business on, not one that you will have to work hard later to cor rest.”
Clothes from the House of Kuppeniieimer are the kind of clothes that inspire in you subconsciously a feeling of confidence and power.
Kuppenheimer suits are here from $12.50 to $35.
