RAZORBACK 1944 at WAR AS PRESENTED BY B W Arkansans beamed with pride as Lt. General Brehon B. Somervell and G-Man chief J. Edgar Hoover came to graduation exercises to receive honorary LL. D. degrees. For three days Fayetteville was treated to a show of brass . . . the air corps paraded for the general . . . natives came for miles to ogle the visiting dignitaries. We’ve called it “The Book” . . . we’ve called it “The Baby” . . . we’ve called it various and sundry unmention¬ able names. We’ve nursed and petted and cursed it day in and day out for eight months, and we’ve finally put it to bed in the printer’s offices. It’s been a headache and a joy . . . a privilege and a responsibility. And it’s finally gone to press. The problems, of red tape, priorities, copper shortages, paper shortages, film shortages, non-existent flash bulbs haunted our dreams at night and came true the next morn¬ ing. Inexorable deadlines leered down at us from the calendar. But now that it’s over, we remember only the high spots. ’oumncL We’ve tried to make it your book. You are our public and our reason for being. We’ve listened to your criticisms and advice and tried to follow them insofar as possible. You wanted pictures: we’ve included as many as we could and the best that we could. The number of pages is smaller; we don’t think that the quality of those pages has been lessened. We’re a little jittery as we submit the book for your ap¬ proval. Read it with faith, hope, and charity. The final test of a book is in its reception by the public. You are our public. We hope you find 1944 mirrored in your Razor- back. iPilili There’s always one rainy game a season . . . this year it was Homecoming. Everybody got wet . . . queen and commoners alike . . . but nobody seemed to mind. We huddled under raincoats, umbrellas, and newspapers, or just ignored the weather. Pop boys and the football teams went about their business in spite of the downpour. THE UNIVERSITY AT WAR Razorbacks of the past have been dedicated to men, to the state, to the nation, and to the students. This year we feel that it is only fitting that the book be dedi¬ cated to the University. We are proud of our school. Ivy leaves against red brick will always mean Old Main to us. Red-gold sunshine reflected through autumn trees recalls the Senior Walk. In the midst of present whirlwind events these things will be steadfast we know. But like the nation, our school too has gone to war. We walk on muddy grass because the army takes the sidewalks. We take finals three times a year instead of twice so that boys can get more college work behind them before joining the armed services. It ' s inconvenient, yes. But it’s all a part of a bigger plan . . . far above our own personal likes and comfort. And so we dedicate this issue of the Arkansas Razor- back to a university at war . . . the University of Arkansas.

ADKINS THE GOVERNOR Governor Homer M. Adkins has successfully completed his third year as chief executive of the state of Arkansas, and is starting on the fourth. This spring he is running for election to the United States Senate. Governor Adkins is a native of Arkansas. Credit is given him for bringing defense industries to Arkansas, improving Arkansas roads, and refunding the state’s bond debt. He is an honorary member of Lambda Chi Alpha, and was a lieutenant in the last war. His tireless efforts were instrumental in persuading the Army to locate two training programs on the Arkansas campus, thus bolstering the enroll¬ ment 50 per cent during one of the most critical periods in the history of the school. THE PRESIDENT Only a year after his graduation from the University of Arkansas, Dr. Arthur M. Harding joined the faculty as a Math instructor. Since then he has served as Registrar, head of the Extension Department, and, since 1941, as President. Probably his presidency has been more difficult than any pre¬ vious one, for he has had to put the University on a war-time basis and keep it running smoothly. Since April of 1943, the Army Air Corps has located a College Training Detachment on the campus and the 3875th Army Specialized Training Unit has been here since June of 1943. In addition, the University proper has been running on a twelve months basis, four quar¬ ters to the year. All this involves tremendous administrative problems, further complicated by a depleted faculty. That the President has successfully met these problems is attested to by the accomplishments of students, both civilian and military. Here is the President’s own statement: “Th roughout the school year now nearing an end, the University of Arkansas has carried on a two¬ fold program—first, the training of hundreds of young men for highly skilled service with our nation’s fighting forces, and, second, the continuance of our well-rounded educational program for our civilian students. “The University gladly accepted the added responsibility brought by the war, but the tasks we were called upon to perform have been difficult. Our administrative staff worked long hours, day after day, to coordinate our military and civilian educational programs, and our faculty—greatly depleted by the departure of many members for the armed force s—shouldered extremely heavy teaching burdens. “The intensive military training program on our campus is nearing a close, at least for the present, but the University remains at the service of our nation, ready to assume any task that will contribute to the winning of the war or aid returning service men and women. “Meanwhile, we shall continue our civilian educational program, not only for students but also, through our Extension Services, for the people throughout the state.” President Harding presents roses to Miss Arkansas, Pi Phi Anne Adams, between halves at the Little Rock game THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES A ten man board appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Arkansas Senate actually decides the policies of the University of Arkansas. Each man serves for ten years, expiration dates being ar¬ ranged so that one member’s term expires each year. Judge J. G. Ragsdale is chairman, and Marion W asson is secretary. Called to active military service was Dr. Euclid Smith, now Lt. Col. Smith. First Row: Fred I. Brown, Jay Dickey, Louis McDaniels, Hugh Park, Harry L. Ponder Second row: John G. Ragsdale, Euclid M.

Horlacher, College of Agriculture The College of Agriculture, headed by Dean W. R. Horlacher, has taken the lead in developing courses in the University curriculum for the veterans of World War II. In addition, the majority of the staff has taught Army classes, beginning with the first Air Corps cadets who arrived in the spring of 1943. Future homemakers go to classes in the Home Economics building, one of the newest on the campus. Nursery school and the Bacteriology lab are located in the basement, a living room and a dining room in connection with the foods labs are found on the first floor, and clothing labs and a small apart¬ ment for practice teaching are on the second floor. Boys get a chance to try out new methods of farming on the University Experimental Farm, about two miles north of . There they raise cattle, pigs, oats, wheat and barley. Dairy prod¬ ucts are marketed at the University dairy, thus giving Agri students the chance to follow their products from the farm to the market. Dean Horlacher, in addition to being head of the College, is also director of the Agricultural Experimental Stations located over the state and of the Agri¬ cultural Extension Service. He came to the University as head of the Animal Industry Department and was made Dean three years later. ARTS AND SCIENCES Dean H. M. Hosford, College of Arts and Science Dr. H. M. Hosford, Dean of the College of Arts and Science, also supervised the classes of Air Corps Students stationed on the campus. He, it was, who kept the whole thing running smoothly by making out the schedules for the cadets in courses prescribed by the army. Dean Hosford who hails from down Texas way, came to the University as Math instructor and was made Dean of the College in 1939. In 1943 he was made vice-president of the University, succeeding Dean Julian S. Waterman. Seat of liberal education is the College of Arts and Science. Long ago established as headquarters was Old Main, around which most of the tradition of the University centers. There are to be found the departments of Languages, Physics, Speech, Journalism, Art, English, and History. Located in outlying buildings are Philosophy, Psychology, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, and Music. Four degrees are offered by the College of Arts and Science—Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Music, and Bachelor of Science in Social Welfare. Ever since the founding of the University in 1871, the College of Arts and Science has had the largest enrollment, and even after losing men to the armed forces, it still boasts more students than any other college. Page 16 Dr. Paul W. Milam Dean of the College of Business Administration Dr. Paul W. Milam, acting Dean of the College of Bus¬ iness Administration since September, was made Dean when the Board of Trustees met in March, 1944. Dr. Milam has had his hands full, as have all of the staff of the Business School, teaching Army classes in addition to regular classes. The School of Business Administration was organized in 1926 by the late President Futrall and Dr. C. C. Fitchner as a two year school. This division of the University grew rapid¬ ly until in 1936, it became a four year college. The college holds membership in the American Associa¬ tion of Collegiate Schools of Business, an organization com¬ posed of the leading universities in North America. Commerce students also have a Day . . . they elect a queen, ignore classes, hold a dance, and put out a special edition of the Guild Ticker, official publication of the College Dr. Milam, who received his Ph.D. from New York University, came to the University of Arkansas in 1930 as an instructor. Administrative offices of the College are housed in the old Commerce Build¬ ing, also shared with the ROTC and ASTP officers, but the majority of the classes are held in the new Classroom Building. BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION EDUCATION Dean H. G. Hotz, College of Education When the 305th College Training Detachment of the Army Air Force and the 3875th Army Specialized Training Unit came to the U. of A. campus, teachers were urgently needed and the faculty of the College of Education jumped into the breach. Every one including Dean IT. G. Hotz was soon teaching Physics, Math, Geography, History, or English to the army, in addition to a regular teach¬ ing load in the college proper. Besides heading the College of Education, serv¬ ing as director of the Summer Session, and teaching university and army courses, Dean Hotz is chairman of the University of Arkansas Com¬ mittee on Postwar Education and chairman of the State Or¬ ganization Committee for Conference on Postwar Plans for Higher Education in Arkansas. He also serves as one of the three members on the State Selective Committee for the Navy V-12 Program. The College of Education has its headquarters in Pea¬ body Hall, but the activities are not limited to that one build¬ ing. Under the wing of the College of Education comes Agri¬ cultural Education which has its own offices in the old infirm¬ ary building. Found in Peabody is the third department of the college—the University Training School, headed by C. IT. Cross. There prospective educators do their practice teach¬ ing in the primary department or the high school division. Page 17 ENGINEERING Dean G. P. Stoker, College of Engineering Dr. George Patrick Stoker, Dean of the College of En¬ gineering, this year supervised and outlined the entire schedule of the Army Engineers who were stationed on the campus in connection with the Army Specialized Training Program. He has constantly been forced to alter his curriculum to fit the war needs. Since its establishment in 1871, the university has housed some kind of engineering department. First training was in civil and mining engineering. Later mechanical replaced min¬ ing, and in 1885 electrical engineering was added. Newest addition is the chemical engineering department. All of the courses were combined in 1912 into the College of Engi¬ neering. Highlight of the year for the College is the traditional Day—classes are forgotten and the order of the day is “Erin Go Braugh.” The boys elect a St. Pat and St. Patricia to reign over the festivities, and for weeks before the great day vie with each other to see who can grow the longest beard. On the eve of St. Pat’s Day, they have a bonfire, announce the identity of the king and queen, and judge the beard contest. Dean Stoker himself is a true Irishman . . . look at his name if you don’t believe it. GRADUATE Dr. J. C. Jordan, Graduate School Dr. John Clark Jordan, Dean of the Graduate School, has made a genuine contribution to the war effort, in holding open house on Saturday nights for any of the Army cadets who wished to come. There the boys were privileged to listen to records, both classical and popular, play chess, write and read poetry, and to make themselves completely at home, in general. In addition Dr. Jordan has taught Army classes, both Air Corps and Engi¬ neers, since the first squadron of Air cadets was sent to the University. The youngest school on the campus, the Graduate School was established in 1927 under the direction of the late Presi¬ dent J. C. Futrall and Dr. Jordan, then Dean of Arts and Science. Requirements are thirty weeks residence, an oral compre¬ hensive, and a thesis. The University offers advanced degrees of Master of Arts or Science, and professional degrees in four branches of engineering. Besides being dean of the Graduate School, Dr. Jordan is head of the English department and teaches a full time schedule of civilian classes. Page 18 LAW Dr. E. B. Meriwether, Law School Edward B. Meriwether, acting dean of the Law School in the absence of Dean Leflar, has contributed to the war effort in many ways. Since the Air Corps trainees first ar¬ rived on the University campus in the Spring of 1943, Dr. Meriwether has taught classes in civil air regulations live hours a week. Frederick Whiteside, Law School professor, and Dr. Meriwether have acted as legal advisors for the Army cadets . . . they have made out wills, powers of attorney, tax returns, and have given any legal information which the cadets desired. Dr. Leflar was made dean and Dr. Meriwether acting dean of the Law School upon the death of Dean Julian S. Waterman in September of 1943. The war has cut the enrollment of the school to less than half of its former size. This year there were 12 students, three of whom were girls. In 1924 fourteen future men of the bar assembled in the basement of Old Main for their session, with Dr. Waterman at the head of the new division. Twelve years later the Law School moved out of the basement and into the build¬ ing formerly occupied by chemistry. Here they found room for their 17,000 volume library. PERSONEL Allan S. Humphreys, Dean of Men Allan S. Humphreys, in addition to serving as dean of men, this year has carried his share of the campus war eflort by acting as advisor on the Military Services to all men students. He has helped prepare boys for their reserve tests, and kept campus men up to date on the latest dicta of the draft boards. His office has had charge of all deferments, and has kept reservists advised as to their status. All this added to an already heavy load as associate professor of Chemistry with civilian and Army classes, has kept the Dean a busy man this year. Regular duties of the Dean of Men include personal counseling, fraternity problems, student government advising, housing, and employment. Jeanette Scudder, Dean of Women Jeanette Scudder, Dean of Women, has this year been active in helping the women students to understand their re¬ sponsibilities toward the war effort and post-war work. Miss Scudder, with the aid of Mrs. Earle Lawrence, has secured for women students information about the various branches of the women’s military services, the Cadet Nurses Corps, and war time jobs for college women in industries. In addition, Miss Scudder has carried on her regular respon¬ sibilities of counseling the women on the campus, advising various student organizations, supervising the housing of the women students, and interpreting their needs and interests to the administration and faculty.

The attempt to keep student government alive this year has been seriously hampered by the Draft Board. Meetings were held regularly every other Thursday at four o’clock in the Student Union, until President Joe Weisiger was called to the Army early this spring. Membership of the Senate this year was made up entirely of New Deal party mem¬ bers, since the all-powerful New Dealers received little, if any, opposition from the Sig Alph-Chio-Kappa combine. Main accomplishments of the year have been the selection of a Social Committee to promote a little enthusiasm and interest with regard to weekends on the campus, and the addition of a second Bulletin Board in the basement of the Student Union containing cards with the names of former University students now in the armed services. An amendment to the Constitution conforming the instrument to the quarter system instead of the semester plan was passed by the members, but the proposed amendment con¬ cerning a change in the requirements for candidacy for Student Body president and vice- president was rejected by the students. This latter amendment would have permitted a girl to hold either office, and it is evident that the few civilian boys left on the campus still want to hold the reins. STUDENT SENATE Joe Weisiger.

Highlight of the year’s activities was the Vocational Information conference to guide Ozark career women in their search for bigger and more lucrative jobs. Held in October, the conference lasted for three days. During that time women students listened to reports from women in industry, education, nursing, and the armed fo rces. Women had the upper hand at the annual St. Nick’s Ball—a vice-versa affair. Each house nominated a soldier and a civilian as candidates for St. Nick. Carnall Hall’s soldier nominee, Pvt. Truman Brown, Air Corps, was the lucky boy whose name was drawn out of the hat at the dance by Virginia Mitchell. At the beginning of the fall quarter A. W. S. sponsored the orientation of freshmen and transfers with the aid of Mortar Board and Sophomore Council. Later a mass meet¬ ing was held to introduce members of the A. W. S. executive Board and to outline the program for the year. Student-Faculty teas, fashion and conduct posters, student-welfare campaign, and the Red Cross bandage rolling room were among the activities of A. W. S. The year ended with a specialized training period for all new officers. OFFICERS Kathleen Gammill . . . President Dorothy Zeek . . . Vice-President Martha Lou Foreman . . .

Second row: Phillips, Purifoy, Stuck, Taylor. To the Social Committee, under the leadership of chairman I. E. Moore, we offer our thanks for the gay times we’ve enjoyed in the Union on week-ends. It is the function of the Social Committee to see that something “cooks” in the way of entertainment on the campus on Friday and Saturday nights. It is this committee which arranges and sponsors every student dance. The smash bang success of the year, which the committee sponsored, was the New Year’s Eve dance—complete with paper hats, confetti, horns, and refreshments. The en¬ tire Student Union building was put to good use with games in the second Hoor and base¬ ment game rooms, refreshments in the grill, and dancing on every floor of the building. Yes, believe it or not, the committee was even able to arrange for us to have late permission in order that we might watch little 1944 tumble in. Organizations desiring to rent the ballroom of the Union for a certain evening must put in their application to the committee to be passed upon. I. E. Moore has made a calendar of all social engagements for the year and at the beginning of each quarter has published the calendar of Union activities to take place during that particular quarter. Members of the committee are elected from their respective houses and meet every other Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 in the Student Union building. SOCIAL COMMITTEE I. E. Moore Mary Ella Crook .

Coach Tomlin, a product of our neighboring state, Oklahoma, re¬ ceived his football experience at Oregon State where he was an out¬ standing lineman. Moving up from a high school coaching position to freshman foot¬ ball coach of the University of Arkansas in 1942, Coach Tomlin’s Shoats won one game and lost one game. In addition to being fresh¬ man coach Tomlin was also the chief scout and gathered a great deal of information on the Razorbacks’ opponents. Hampered by a lack of experienced men, Coach Tomlin deserves praise for his line work last season and for his untiring efforts in try¬ ing to get Arkansas high school stars to attend the University of Arkansas. Following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Coach Tomlin ex¬ pects to be called to the Navy some time before next season. War wrought many changes in college football during the 1943 season. Not the least affected in this second wartime football season was the University of Arkansas. For the third consecutive year Arkansas had to get a new head coach. In 1941 Fred Thomsen, now in the Army Air Force in India, was head mento r. In 1942 George Cole, now an officer in the Navy, took over the reins, and last fall John “Bud” Tomlin was head coach. Because of travel difficulties games scheduled with the Albuquerque Air Base and the Memphis Naval Training Station had to be cancelled after the season had already started. Because of the scarcity of opponents only one of these games was re-scheduled. The Arkansas A. and M. Boll Weevils from Monticello were scheduled to replace the Albuquerque Air Base. Before the war, Arkansas A. and M. would have been no match for the Razorbacks, but now it is a Naval and Marine Training school. When the football season rolled around last fall, it was discovered that there were a number of college football players in school, but that there was no equipment available. In order to play this game Arkansas had to loan equipment to the Boll Weevils. Not only did A . and M. use Arkansas equipment, but they also had five 1942 Arkansas lettermen while Arkansas had only one returning letterman. The lone returning Arkansas letterman was Ben Jones, and the live Arkansas lettermen on the A. and M. team were Charles Lively, Wilson Matthews, Wayne Marshall, Paul Paladino, and Clayton Wynne. Assistant Coach Clyde Van Sickle was in charge of the line¬ men and was a capable assistant to Coach Tomlin. Coach Van Sickle played his football here at the University in the late twenties. 1 le was an outstanding lineman and made the All-Southwest team in 1928. After completing his college ca¬ reer Van Sickle played profes¬ sional football with the Green Bay Packers. Following his professional ca¬ reer Van Sickle became football coach at Little Rock High School, but in 1941 came to the University as the freshman foot¬ ball coach. Page 69 Lucas of T. C.

Arkansas.59 Missouri Mines .... 0 Texas Christian University 13 Arkansas.0 Unleashing a brilliant rushing attack of pulverizing power and speed, the Razorbacks defeated the Missouri School of Mines in the season’s opener by a score of 59—0. Throughout the first quarter the game was on an even basis, but when the second quarter was only a minute old, Cox passed to Baldwin on the Miner fourteen yard marker and two plays later Nicholas smashed over for the first Arkansas touchdown. This opened the way for more Razorback scoring which spelled ultimate defeat for the Missouri Mines aggregation. Hopes were high for the Porkers to win their first Southwest conference ga me of the season when they met the T. C. U. Horned Frogs in Little Rock, but again the old T. C. U. jinx proved to be too much for the inexperienced Porkers. The first half both teams fought furiously up and down the field to a 0—0 standstill. In the third quarter T. C. U. drew blood twice with two long runs by Lucas, but throughout the rest of the game the Frogs were bottled up. In the fourth quarter the Porkers began to open up with passes from Lindsey to Baldwin, Rankin, and Dinglar, but the drive was cut short as the game ended.

M. . . . 19 Arkansas.12 University of Texas ... 34 Arkansas.0 Meeting a star studded Arkansas A. M. team composed of Marine trainees, five of whom were 1942 Arkansas lettermen, the Razorbacks were unable to stop Steed, who personally accounted for two of his team’s touchdowns and was an important factor in setting up a third touchdown. Meanwhile the Porkers scored twice, once on an interception by Leon Pense and another time on a pass from Lindsey to Baldwin in the end zone. Their only other scoring opportunity of the game came when they started a thirty-six yard march in the third quarter which ended on the A. M. one yard line. Striking with lightning speed early in the opening quarter of the game, the Texas Longhorns were never headed by the Razorbacks and went on to defeat Arkansas 34—0. The score was fourteen to nothing going into the fourth quarter and it was then that the Texans scored twenty points when they intercepted several Arkansas passes. In one of the most breathless moments of the game, Roxie Rankin stood in the shadows of his own goal post and punted the ball out of bounds on the Texas 28 yard line for a kick of 70 yards. Rhody Nichols, Walter Davis, Ewell Thompson, Harold Cox, Billie Ray Randolph, Earl Wheeler Page 71 A Homecoming crowd of five thousand watched the hard fighting Razorbacks put up three deter¬ mined goal line stands before the Texas Aggies were able to cross the Arkansas goal twice and defeat the Razorbacks 13—0 in Arkansas ' twenty-second annual Homecoming game. The Aggies’ ground at¬ tack was checked on several different occasions and they were finally forced to take the air lanes before they were able to score. Harold Cox, Arkansas ace punter, kept the Aggies back in their own territory most of the afternoon with his booming punts, ranging from forty to sixty yards. Three times Arkansas had scoring chances when they were deep in Aggie territory but each time the Aggie defense held and the hard fighting Razorbacks were unable to score. Scoring three touchdowns and kicking two extra points, the Rice Owls rolled up points in the third quarter to defeat Arkansas 20—7. But early in the third quarter Rice recovered a Razorback fumble on the Arkansas four yard line and went over for a touchdown. That opened the way for two more Owl touchdowns before they could be stopped. The Razorback score came in the fourth quarter when Arkansas opened up a spread formation with Pense passing to Jones on the one yard line. On the next play Jones plunged over for the touchdown. After the Arkansas score, both teams battled in the middle of the field for the remainder of the game. Roxie Raxkix, Charles Milam, Charles Johnson, Carl Lee Jackson, Marion Alexander, C. H.

M. . . . 19 Arkansas.13 Before some 10,000 wild-eyed spectators in San Antonio’s Alamo stadium the Razorbacks won a 14—12 thriller from the Mustangs. This was one of those real thrill-a-second ball games with the Razor- backs striking quickly through air to score in the opening minutes of the game with a pass from Pense to Baldwin behind the Mustang goal line; Young kicked the extra point. In the second quarter again the Razorbacks scored on a pass from Pense to Baldwin, Young converting to make the score 14—0. But now the S. M. U. machine began to gain momentum and the Mustangs tallied in the closing seconds of the second quarter to make the score read 14-6 at half time. In the third quarter again S. M. U. put on a sustained drive which netted them six more points and made the score 14—12. Charlie “Meathouse” Johnson turned in a fine defensive performance by knocking down several Mustang passes and con¬ stantly stopping their plays in the middle of the line. The Porkers really proved why they are called the “Passing Porkers” in Grizzley Stadium at Fort Smith when they were defeated by Oklahoma A. tk M. 19—13. It was in this game that the Porkers atempted sixty passes and completed twenty-six for a net yardage of 372 yards. The Arkansans passed from a spread formation throughout the entire game with Leon Pense and Marvin Lindsey doing the passing. In the closing seconds the Porkers were knocking at the Cowboy goal line following two pass completions of 35 and 40 yards respectively. This was anybody’s ball game until the final gun sounded.

Tulsa scored in every quarter by capitalizing on every scoring opportunity they had while the Razorbacks, on the other hand, were unable to penetrate beyond the Tulsa twenty. Al¬ though the Razorbacks were smothered under an avalanche of Oklahoma power, they deserve credit for a fighting game against a team composed of former grid stars from other colleges made eligible by slack war time eligibility rules. The fact that Arkansas won only two games during the season didn ' t keep it from having some top performers on the squad. The Razorbacks who gained recognition were Leon Pense, Alton Baldwin, and Harold Cox. Pense made All-Southwest Conference guard and honorable mention in All-American. Baldwin made second team All-Southwest Conference end and also honorable mention in All-American. Harold Cox was the nation’s number one punter with an average of 41.5 for the season. Next fall when football season rolls around one thing can be assured is that Arkansas will win its share of games with a veteran line composed of lettermen Dinglar, Rankin, Johnson, Young, Jackson, Cope, Ford, and Wheeler. Backfield lettermen Baldwin and Lindsey will also return. John Douthitt, Melvin McGaha, J. W. Humphries, Alex Dickson, Walter Drevs, Thomas King Page 74 BASKETBALL The coach . . . Dr. Eugene Lambert started from scratch and developed his team into one of the most colorful fives in Razorback history during his second year at the helm of U. of A. basketball. Coach Lambert, a master of cage strategy and a star of the ' 29 Porkers, coached at Kenyon College in 1936. The following year he accepted a position at Arkansas as assistant head of the physical edu¬ cation department. Last year he was appointed Head Coach at his alma mater. l ie coached a winning team this year, with many outstanding individual players. Bill Flynt received All-Southwestern conference honors as well as mention on several All-American teams. Deno Nichols also received a position on the All-Southwestern team. “Big Ben” Jones was listed on the second team of the All-Southwest squad. He topped all the Razorbacks in total scoring for the season. Coach Lambert tallied with a winning team his first year as head coach. The season . . . was good. Boasting the highest scoring quintet in conference history, the Razor- backs kept their winning tradition intact by sharing the Southwest conference championship with the Rice Institute Owls. In winning 11 games while losing only one against conference competition, they estab- Isihed a new scoring record for the season and won an invitation to the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. Although the Porkers were favored to win in the NCAA tourney, an automobile accident that seriously injured two of their high scorers and killed a physical education instructor forced them to withdraw from the tournament. Their replacement, Utah University, beat Dartmouth for the N. C. A. A. championship, and St. John s of New ork for the un¬ disputed National championship. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the season was the Razorbacks’ victory in Madison Square Garden over the City College of New York aggregation. Certainly the 42—41 victory over the Rice Owls at Houston was the most sensational game of the year. With only two seconds remaining in the game and the Red and White of Arkansas one point behind, “Deno” Nichols shot a perfect goal from mid-court to win the game and enable the Porkers to tie for the championship. William “Preacher” Flynt and Nichols, transfers from Ouachita College, and Captain Ben Jones sparked the Hogs throughout the season. The captain . . . Ben Jones was the only letterman on the squad at the be¬ ginning of the season. When recuper¬ ating from the automobile accident that brought the Porker season to an abrupt and regretful end, he was unanimously elected captain of the 1944-45 team. On April 15 he was married to Inez Fitch by teammate Bill Flynt while still in the Baptist hospital in Little Rock. 1 le was a star both offensively and defensively. Ilis huge 6-foot 4-inch body could go down the court faster than any other member of the squad. His swiftness, driving power, and accur¬ acy place him among the many aces Arkansas university has produced. “Big Ben” was top scorer of the squad. Page 75 Bill Flynt Roxie Rankin fights for the ball while team mates look on. Sports writers tabbed the Arkansas prospects as “dreary” in pre¬ season predictions. Only one letterman, Ben Jones, returned. The entire first team of ' 43 had left by graduation and induction into the armed services. Freshmen were going to have to carry the burden it appeared. However, Coach Lambert managed to obtain four trans¬ fer students who later proved to be the major portion ol the smooth Razorback combination. Against the major teams in the nation the Porkers compiled a 16—8 won-lost record for the ent ire season. Fac¬ ing teams that were composed largely of Navy personnel, the fighting Razorbacks, an all-civilian outfit, usually kept plugging until victory was theirs. In their 24 games during the season Arkansas scored 1195 points to 1084 for their opponents. These figures also include the game with DePaul, number three college team in the nation, two games with the Oklahoma Aggies, fifth ranking team in the nation, and a game with Phillips “66” Oilers, National A. A. U. champions for the second year in succession. All of these games were played away from home, rhe Razorbacks were undefeated in nine games on their home court. On four different occasions Arkansas stood a good chance to break the conference scoring record for a game, but each time the opposition froze the ball and made it impossible. The most points scored by the Razorbacks in a single game were 74, against Southern Methodist University on January 22. A little over a month later the Porkers bested the previous total season record by ending the season with 680 points to their credit in the 12 conference games, averaging 5 7 points per game, which “ain ' t hay” in any major league. “Preacher” Bill Flynt was high man in the single game scoring, mak¬ ing 29 points against T. C. U. on the night ol January 8. Nichols, Jones, and Flynt were third, fourth, and fifth respectively in confer¬ ence scoring for the season. Jones was highest scorer of the team in the combined conference and non-conference record. From the beginning to the end of the season, the Razorbacks were hard to stop. I hey opened with four consecutive victories before Ben Jones Deno Nichols Page 76 Earl Wheeler Mike Schumchyk C i EORCIE KOK making a trip through the East. In the season opener Arkansas smothered the Conway Independents 60—33 before a large home crowd. The freshmen and newcomers to the squad played well and completely outclassed the smaller Conway five. The always tough Kansas State Teachers quintet of Pittsburg was the next Porker victim in a close hard-fought game, 42—37, the Red and White coming from behind to win the game. Springfield Inde¬ pendents came to the Razorback Field House next and returned home nursing the wounds from a 65—40 beating. Scoring honors were well distributed with all the 1 logs figuring in the scoring column. In the final tune-up game, Arkansas was victorious against the star-studded Camp Chaffee Tankers, 58—52. Following a week’s vacation lor Christmas holidays the Arkansas University cagers hit the road for New York and Madison Square Garden. City College of New York fell victim of the Razorbacks, 39—37 before 17,000 fans, the largest crowd to attend a non-tourna¬ ment game there the whole year. The next night, December 29, Albright College of Reading, Pa., upset the Arkansans, 47-40, ending their winning streak which had given them their first five games. Then Arkansas ended their Eastern tour at Buffalo where DePaul beat them 59—30 before about 10,000 fans. In the opening conference games for the Porkers, they swept two games from Texas Christian University, 71—50 and 60—29. In the second game Bill Flynt scored as many points as the entire T. C. U. team, running wild to give the Razorbacks a pair of wins. The all- important Rice series came the next week-end, January 14 and 15 at Houston. The most perfect story-book game of the season was played that opening night in the Texas metropolis. By virtue of a field goal from mid-court by “Deno” Nichols in the last seconds of the game, the Arkansans won 42—41. With thirteen minutes to go in the game the Owls were leading by eight points and already Bill Henry, 6-foot 8-inch center, had scored 21 points. However, he was held to one field goal for the rest of the game and an Arkansas rally pulled them up near the Owls in scoring. This set the stage for Deno Nichols, leading conference scorer, adds another two points to his record. Page 77 Nichols’ long shot with two seconds to play. It zipped through the net to hand Rice their only defeat in the conference. However, the next night was an entirely different story. Rice, led by All-American Henry, won 67—41. Many Arkansas shots rolled off the hoop, and practically no baskets were made during the first half. Then, it was too late. This was the only defeat suffered by the Razorbacks in the entire conference season. The following week-end the Southern Methodist University Mus¬ tangs came to Fayetteville for a two-game series. Arkansas easily won both, 68—58 and 74-49. In the latter game the stalling type of play employed by the Ponies prevented the Arkansas speedsters from setting a new conference scoring record. Then, for two weeks there were no conference games for Arkansas. During that time, the team toured Oklahoma and played the great Oklahoma A. M. and Phillips “66” teams. Only experience and knowledge was gained by the Arkansans during that winless tour. The two games with A. M. in Stillwater and Oklahoma City ended 66—41 and 17-15. Robert Kurland, 7-foot Aggie All-American, was just too tall for the Razorbacks. Coach Lambert openly expressed his objection to Kurland’s goal tending by having his cagers play a slow game throughout. Arkansas was in possession of the ball for 30 of the 40 minutes of playing time in the game. The stalling tactics ac¬ count for the 17—15 score, lowest made by either team during the season. The following night, after a first half tie at 26—26, the National Champion Phillips “66” Oilers pulled out in front to win 57-42. Returning to conference play, the Razorbacks traveled to Waco, Texas, to engage the Baylor University Bears. Following an easy first night victory 45—28, the U. of A. team came close to losing the game and the conference championship. Brilliant play by Ben Jones and another last minute goal by Nichols won the game 36—34 in the second tilt against the Bears. Only Texas and Texas A. M. remained as obstacles in the path of the Razorbacks toward at least a tie for the championship. T he Earl Wheeler outreaches S. M. U. opposition to put the hall through the basket for Arkansas.

Rice and Arkansas remained neck and neck in the title race as both bowled over team after team. During a week ' s rest from conference play the Razorbacks lost to the Kansas State Teachers, a trainee-laden team, at Pittsburg, 48— 41. Then, the final games of the season faced the oncharging Pork¬ ers. At College Station, Texas, Arkansas smothered the Texas Aggies, 70-35 and 60—38. These 130 points compiled by the Razor- backs brought their season’s total to 680, 12 more than the previous record in the history of the Southwestern Conference. Mike Schum- chyk, sterling pivot man, provided the scoring punch in these last two conference games. Thus, Arkansas tied Rice for the Championship of the Conference with a record of 11—1. The strong Razorback reserves played four other reserve teams during the season and won in all four contests. Each game was an overwhelming victory. A few days after the regular season had closed Arkansas was se¬ lected to represent the Southwest conference in the National Collegi¬ ate Athletic Association tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. They accepted the invitation and a pre-tournament tune up game was ar¬ ranged with the Camp Chaffee Tankers, state A. A. U. champions. The ‘‘battle of champions” ended in disaster in more ways than one. First of all, the Porkers lost 58—42 without the services of Flynt, who had withdrawn from school a few days before. On the return trip from the Chaffee game an automobile accident seriously injured “Deno” Nichols and Ben Jones and killed Everett Norris, university physical education instructor and team aide. Arkan¬ sas’ season had ended. They immediately withdrew from the tourna¬ ment. Nichols suffered a badly smashed leg that became infected a few days later. Amputation at the thigh was necessary. Both of Jones’s legs were broken, but doctors were able to set the compound fractures and prevent amputation. Page 79 Although there was a scarcity of manpower, intramurals were successfully carried on this year under the able direction of Robert Gibson. However, this scarcity provided for a wide open race with last year’s champions, Sigma Chi, taking a major share of the titles. Undefeated and having only one touchdown scored on them, Sigma Chi took the football championship with ease. Their closest squeeze was with PiKA, whom they defeated 7—6 in a thrilling game which ended with PiKA in possession of the ball on Sigma Chi’s one yard line. The Skee boys came right back to take the volleyball crown by defeating SAE in a playoff game. The basketball race, won by PiKA, proved to be the closest, for two playoff games were necessary. PiKA and Kappa Sig tied for the championship of League I, but in the playoff game PiKA won. Then PiKA defeated the Independents, champions of League II, in a thrilling overtime game, 39—37, to take the basketball diadem. Carl Hunter, Sigma Chi, lost only one set in becoming the University tennis champion. At press time, Sigma Chis were leading the cam¬ pus, but ping pong, soccer, boxing and wrestling have yet to be decided. Girls, too, played intramural tour¬ naments in basketball, hockey, and softball, under the auspices of the Women’s Athletic Association. INTRAMURALS Manager Gibson had a hard time keeping the matches one step ahead of the draft boards. Page 80 First row: Ake, Ammons, Barton, Baughn, L. J. Bledsoe, L.

Outstanding at basketball, football games or any occasion where the situation called for cheers, the Rootin’ Rubes, women’s pep organization on the campus, has formed the nucleus of the University cheering squad and has taken the lead in creating new interest and enthusiasm for University athletics. Their whole-hearted support was evidenced by their early morning trips in sub¬ zero weather to the train to give the team a great send-off to victory for their out-of- town games, and their hundred per cent attendance when the occasion called for cheers. Climaxing a month of pledgeship, the pledges of Rootin ' Rubes were subject to a week of mock initiation during which they dressed in white and were required to get the Rootin’ Rubes signatures on a stuffed Razorback. At the final basketball game of the season on our home court, Rootin’ Rubes presi¬ dent Margie Evans made the presentation of blankets to the Senior lettermen, and others receiving the award. Those receiving blankets were Deno Nichols, basketball; Bill Thomas, football; Mr. Gregson, for his untiring support of the team, and G. DeMatt Henderson, president of the Alumni Association, and Coach Lambert, both lettermen during their football days at the University. OFFICERS Marjorie Evans.

To foster school spirit at athletic contests is the main function of the Arkansas Boosters Club, official pep organization of the University. T he brotherhood of the red and white jackets also sponsors the homecoming festivities, including the parade, prizes for the best decorations, and the homecoming queen’s ceremony. The expense of the flowers for this occasion is also footed by the ABC. When the Razorbacks leave Fayetteville, the ABC teams up with its sister organiza¬ tion, the Rootin’ Rubes, and gives the boys a rousing send-off. In pre-war years, when transportation was abundant, the Boosters Club sponsored special trains for the Arkansas rooters and the fancy stepping Razorback band. Pep rallies in the Greek amphitheater and the introduction of the football team is another function of the club. Practically every organized house on the campus is represented in the club. Mem¬ bership comes after a period of “orientation” in which the “hog” or the candidate for membership goes through everything from an egg throwing contest to catching a greased pig between the half of the first football game. Dr. W. S. Gregson is permanent secretary of the ABC and through his efforts the club has grown to prominence among the honorary organizations of the school. Honor¬ ary memberships have been given many outstanding boosters of Arkansas. The club first made its appearance on the Arkansas campus in 1919. Dick Duncan Jack Pierce . Lan Williams W. S.

The A Club limits its membership to those who have won a varsity letter in any major sport. The club was organized in 1922 with only a few members, one of its found¬ ers being J. C. Futrall, former president of the University. The membership of the club grew until in pre-war days there were forty members every year. However, this year only one active member returned, Ben Jones, who received varsity letters last year in both football and basketball. When the football and basketball letters were awarded for 1943, twenty-eight men received their first A, and thus became members of the A Club. Some of the A Club members received wide recognition for their athletic prowess. Harold Cox led the nation in punting with an average of forty-three yards per kick while Roxie Rankin was fifth in punting with an average slightly over forty yards. Leon Pense threw more passes than anyone else in college football, Ben Jones was third in the number of passes received, and Alton Baldwin was in the top six in yards gained by receiving passes. Leon Pense was placed on the All-Southwest football team, and Alton Baldwin received honorable mention All-American. Deno Nichols, Ben Jones, and Bill Flynt finished three, four, and five respectively in the Southwest Conference baskteball scoring race. Deno Nichols and Bill Flynt were selected by the conference coaches for the All- Southwest basketball team, and Ben Jones was placed on the second team. Flynt also received honorable mention All-American. An annual affair on the campus is the A Club dance which is held every spring. It serves as a spring Homecoming, for old members usually come up to join the fun and enliven the party. OFFICERS James Young .President Ben Jones.

When the school year started in June, the Military staff was made up of six men, Colonel White, Captain Greathouse, Lt. Brown, Lt. Mohrhusen, Lt. Hardie, and Lt. Wilder. These officers were in charge of a depleted ROTC unit of three hundred men. When the AS I P arrived, Lts. Mohrhusen and Hardie were detailed to work with them, Major Jefferson D. Smith and were raised to the rank of Captain. During the course of the year Lt. Brown was also promoted to Captain. Colonel J. M. White was retired in September, and Captain Greathouse took charge un¬ til Major Jefferson D. Smith arrived in December to command the post. Major Smith is a graduate of Texas A. M., and received a reserve commission from the ROTC there. Un¬ til he was called to active duty in De¬ cember of 1940, he was employed by the Agricultural Adjustment Adminis¬ tration in Dallas. His first military as¬ signment was at the Ft. Sill reception center where he remained for two years. From December ’42 until June ' 43, he was commanding officer at the Army Ad¬ ministration School at Jonesboro. Later he was personnel adjutant and com¬ manding officer of the STAR unit and 1892nd ASTU at Arkansas State Col¬ lege also in Jonesboro. Fie was pro¬ moted to Major in November of 1943 and came to the University of Arkan¬ sas on December 26, 1943. MILITARY STAFF Page 85 Left to right: Harrison, Sheffield, Moses, Swift, Eason. Since this time last year the ROTC has been in a constant state of change. In May of 1943 there were between 700 and 800 men enrolled for ROTC, basic and advanced. Seven companies were set up, comprising two units, one Infantry and one Signal Corps. With the calling up of all enlisted reserve men in June, the unit lost all of its junior and senior officers, seniors going to Ft. Benning and Ft. Monmouth for officers training and the juniors reporting to Camp Maxey, Camp Crowder, and Ft. Knox for basic train¬ ing preparatory to Officers Candidate School. The latter men were returned to the cam¬ pus under the Army Specialized Training Program to await openings in OCS. Sopho¬ mores who ordinarily would have gone into advanced ROTC were drafted, and so the ROTC started the accelerated program in June with an enrollment of 300. Following Army decrees, all advanced courses in ROTC were dropped and the regiment was reduced to one unit called a Branch Immaterial. Basic training common to all branches of the services was the only course offered. The unit was organized as a Battalion, and was headed by a cadet Major, assisted by a Battalion Ad¬ jutant. Company Captains were added to the cadet staff, this making a total of five where last year there were seven. CADET STAFF Vaile Harrison. Cadet Major Archie Sheffield. Battalion Adjutant Bill S.

Five girls were chosen as sponsors by members of the ROTC battalion staff. High¬ est honor went to Frances Harrison who was acclaimed the “Major’s Lady.” Following the example set by last year’s cadet commanding officer, Cadet Major Harrison picked the Battalion sponsor, and she was really the Major’s Lady, for she and Vaile were mar¬ ried last summer. Battalion Adjutant Archie Sheffield chose Cornelia Cazort as his sponsor. “Corky is a member of Chi Omega and was picked as one of the campus beauties by Judge John Robert Powers. Lorene Alby represented Company A as Captain Bill Moses’ sponsor. Lorene is a Kappa Kappa Gamma from Van Buren and wore Bill’s Kappa Sig pin. Mrs. Vaile Harrison The Major’s Lady Captain John Swift picked Betty Torrans, Arts sophomore from Texarkana, as sponsor for Company B. Betty is a member of Coterie and Mixed Chorus. Betty Hendrick was sponsor of Company C, chos¬ en by Captain Alcuin Eason. Betty is a Pi Phi from Texarkana, and a member of Fix, Kappa Pi, Boots and Spurs, and Blackfriars. The annual Military Ball was held January 21 in the Union. Music was furnished by Pfc. A1 Gannaway and his orchestra. A1 was a former ROTC man at the U. of A. and was stationed on the campus with the 3875th ASTU. Just before intermission Major Vaile Harrison and the Major’s Lady led the grand march. An exhi¬ bition drill platoon in charge of Cadet Captain Swift performed during intermission. The dance was for ROTC men and their dates only, but an invitation was extended to members of ASTU’s Company D who were former RO I C officers.

That has been the case with the ROTC organization for the past year. As explained before, the regiment formerly located on the A. U. campus was re¬ duced to a battalion of Branch Immaterial. Advanced ROTC was abolished, and so the staff and officers commanding the three companies were all Freshmen or Sophomores. Draft Boards and Army and Navy Reserves changed the civilian status of the boys into a military one so rapidly that a yearbook could not hope to keep up with all the changes; it could only preserve one phase of the transition. At the time pictures were made for the Razorback, all the above men were lieutenants in the various companies with the exception of Archie Sheffield who served as Battalion Adjutant. However, the pictures were made in January; by the time the book went to press in April, only two of the boys were still in school, and both of these had completed their military training. All of the others had been called to active service with the armed forces. CADET OFFICERS Page 88 W. S. MOSES Captain OFFICERS R. N. MADDOX W. H. BROOKS First Lieutenant Second Lieutenant J. A.

At a meeting held at the first of this school year, Guidon, women’s military organiza¬ tion, passed a resolution that in the future the membership would be limited to sophomores and juniors only. This was done in the hope that when the senior women were relieved from their duties, the organization would become more active. Last year the organization held open house for the soldiers, visited the United Service Organization, rolled bandages, marched in the Homecoming parade, and sponsored a drive for the Red Cross. Known as “The Guards” until it petitioned Guidon in 1934, the group is a national auxiliary of Scabbard and Blade. The organization was originated at South Dakota Uni¬ versity and Company 1) is the local company, which follows its national with its similar purpose of upholding policies of our nation in times of peace and war. Meetings are held twice a month, on the first and third Tuesdays, in the Blue Room of the Student Union. New members are taken into the organization twice a year, in the spring and fall. Five girls from each organized house are eligible for membership, and the houses represented by the girls elected to major offices are entitled to an additional member. Captain Ann Lawson, now serving for the second year in this capacity, is also presi¬ dent of Pi Beta Phi, has served as society editor of the Traveler , and is a member of PIX, and of YWCA.

The Army Specialized Training Program sent 809 men to the University of Arkansas between June 13, 1943 and March 11, 1944. These “Engineers,” as they were called, were to receive six terms of college work under the first set up, but the program was terminated before any of the men had a chance to complete more than three terms. Just exactly what the purpose of this training was still remains a little indefinite, but this is a mechanized war, and the Army needs trained technicians. The ASTU program was an attempt to provide just such men. Dean Stoker, head of the Engineering College, was in charge of scheduling the boys’ 60 hour week. All of the Engineers took three terms of English, Physics, History, Geography, and Mathematics. By the time the men reached the fourth term, they were supposed to be ready to specialize in civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering. It was an intensive program 24 contact hours being the average carried by each man. This combined with drill, physical training, and the scheduled study halls added up to 60 hours per week, a hard schedule as any college student can testify. In November the campus welcomed back the “Old Guard,” a shipment of Arkansas men who had been in the enlisted reserve in 1942-43 taking advanced ROT C. I hese boys had been called up in June and sent to Fort Knox, Camps Maxey and Crowder for basic training before going to Officers Candidate School. I hey were sent back to school under the ASTU as there were no openings in OCS when they finished basic. All but about a dozen of the men were enrolled in the regular AS I 0 program; these others, who were advanced engineering students, took up where they had left off in June. Two men, Penix and Hutchinson, were “area language” students, and studied languages preparatory to becoming members of the Armies of Occupation. Men were housed in Razorback Hall, Mary Ann Davis Hall, and Hill Hall. Be¬ hind Razorhack Hall a peculiar building was erected to house the returning Arkansas men; it was 200 feet long and 20 feet wide, and the boys nicknamed it “The Sad Shack,” reasons being obvious after one look at the structure. ASTP Page 94 AIR CORPS On March 8, 1943, the first contingent of the 305th College Training Detachment of the Army Air Corps arrived at Fayetteville. Five days later the second three hundred and seventy-five were brought in, bringing the group up to its full capacity of 750 men. By April of 1944 two thousand six hundred and forty-two men had gone through the col¬ lege training program at the U. of A. Most immediate problem was that of housing. The boys were finally settled in the Field House, Mary Ann Davis Hall and Razorback Hall. By the time the ASTP ar¬ rived in June, Camp Neil Martin had been completed and the majority of the Air Corps moved into it. Some were left in the Field House and some in the N. Y. A. Hut. The camp was named after Arkansas’ famous basketball ace who joined Chenault’s Flying Tigers and was shot down over Burma. The Aviation Students started their college training almost immediately. Dean H. M. Hosford, vice-president of the University and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, was in charge of scheduling the classes and upon his shoulders fell the heavy task of coordinating civilian and army classes. Finding enough instructors for all of the Physics classes, he says, was his greatest problem. While at the University, the cadets received 80 contact hours of Mathematics, 180 hours of Physics, 60 hours each of Eng¬ lish, Geography, and Flistory, 20 hours each of Medical Aid and Civil Air Regulations, and 10 hours of actual flying. Social life of the trainees was, naturally, somewhat restricted, but the weekends were proclaimed play days, and the Arkansas co-ed gladly cooperated. Saturday night Air Corps dances came once every five weeks and, in between, organized houses welcomed the cadets at open houses. In the spring the boys took over the old Boys 4-H House, refur¬ nished it and established a “Cadet Club”. Big argument for the first few weeks was “Wine or Women?” The question was finally settled to everyone’s satisfaction by allow¬ ing dates every other weekend, and keeping it strictly stag in the interim.

For the second year, Panhellenic’s quota system, had its intended result of doing away with a little of the rush week confusion. By the new rules, inaugurated by the group last year, hot-boxing, financial extravagance, caravans, and summer house parties were all abolished, and rushees received much gentler treatment. Regulation of inter-sorority problems is the main function of the Women’s Pan- hellenic Association, for every national sorority on the campus is governed by this group. It is composed of two representatives from each of the five sororities, and its chief trial and tribulation is rush week. By promoting closer cooperation among the sororities, and by instituting a system of compromise, the various disagreements which often arise are soon settled. Chief headache of the year was the forming of the new constitution. The girls were astounded to discover that, legally, they were being governed by four constitutions, and immediately appointed a committee to set up the fifth and final one. It is hoped that this new constitution will carry into effect its purpose of establishing definite rules for future good will and better understanding among the members. Panhellenic and AWS were the co-sponsors of the ‘Big Dog Stuck had her hands full women’s vocational conference held this fall, when sev- end women representing different fields of work and various branches of women’s military services, spoke to all the women students. The last week in April, Pan I 1 ell held their annual retreat, at which all the old and new members met and discussed the part that sororities will play in the career of a college girl. The presidency of the group rotates among the representatives of the sororities, and the other officers are also selected according to the rotation system. Miss Jeannette Scudder, Dean of women, is faculty advisor, and the group meets with her every two weeks. OFFICERS Connie Stuck. Virginia Shamei. Mary Ella Crook .... .

Following this first event came the party after the Homecoming game, and then the fall Eleusinian. Christmas found faculty members gathered at the chapter house for a Christmas tea. Later in the month the annual formal was held in the Union ball¬ room. Fraternity men flocked to the Chio house for a Valentine open house, and in April there was a spring Eleusinian to celebrate the founding of Chi Omega. Chio sisters didn’t just major in society however. President Margaret Stockley, a member of Mortar Board, along with Connie MacChesney and Mary Ann Hoyle proudly displayed Phi Beta Kappa keys, while Mortar Board prexy Dorothy Zeek was featured in ho’s Who. Virginia Patillo was elected president of the House Manager’s Organization, and cheerleader Joy Johnston helped to build up A. U. spirit at the games. Business Manager Eula Nell Edwards and Society Editor Jean Carroll were faithful members of the Traveler staff. Cornelia “Corky” Cazort was chosen by John Powers as one of the Razorback beauties. “Bat” Patton and Sarah Ann Barham were the first of the sisters to make a trip to the altar, but Sis Clement followed their example in April. En¬ gagements were announced by four of the girls, and fraternity pins are very much in evidence around the Chio do¬ main. Considerable speculation around the campus was aroused as to the landscap¬ ing of the Chio yard this year, but the Chi Omegas still insist it’s grass.

The girls of the trident and crescent took the campus by storm this year with five queens to their credit, hirst queen to be chosen was frosh Janie Brainerd who was selected by the fraternity men to reign over the Inter- fraternity Ball. In February Dean Stoker’s engineers crowned Jane Nichols St. Patricia and June Harlan was named a campus beauty by Judge John Robert Powers. Late in March Ruth Taylor was chosen “Sweetheart of Sigma Chi,” and in April Arkansas sent June Adams to the Texas Roundup. First social function for the Deltas was the Home¬ coming party for members of the football team. In October a dinner dance and a sweater hop were held for the pledges, and in November came the annual formal. Faculty members were received at the Delta Delta Delta house early in February, and fraternity men Hocked to an open house on another February day. Youngest sorority president on the campus was Tri Delts’ Louise Scurlock. “Scurlock” is a sophomore in the College of Business Administration. Virginia Shamel, one of the Deltas’ best, is editor of the Guild Ticker and was elected president of AWS in the spring election. She is a member of Panhellenic, Guidon, the Student Senate, and is vice- president of the Arkansas Delta Delta Delta chapter. Another campus figure at the ‘‘Delta Shelter” is Betty Farmer, pianist deluxe. Betty was accompanist for Mixed Chorus in addition to serving as president of Sig¬ ma Alpha Iota.

Within the chapter, pledges and initiates enter¬ tained each other on several occasions, the most riotous of which was the pledge walk-out, ending with jail for the culprits and headaches for the initiates. D. G.’s also participated in “Morale boosting,” doing their share of entertaining for the local Air Corps cadets and ASTU trainees by holding open house four times during the fall. At Christmas, Mother Pettus and Delta Gamma alumnae gave the girls a Yuletide party with the usual Christmas tree and presents for everyone. A formal in January after which the D. G.’s went serenading, a faculty tea in February, a Founders’ Day Banquet in March, and an alumnae luncheon in April completed the Delta Gamma social chapter. A snack bar is the latest addition to the local chapter house. Golden anchors adorn the walls of the new play room to harmonize with the Naval motif. The words “Delta Gamma” are spelled out in signal flags and navy blue curtains with white tie-backs frame the windows. Delta Gamma prexy, Mildred Whistle, is an Arts senator, a member of Panhellenic, Boots and Spur, and Y. W. C. A. Delta Gamma also houses Virginia Taylor, vice-president of the Senior class; Fritzie Truesdale, Junior class secretary and secretary of Boots and Spur; W. A.

Food was served from a silver and gold table built in tiers with lights tucked under each tier to simulate a Christmas tree. The formal was held in February at the usual place with a breakfast afterward at the house. Later in the year the girls loaned their house to Sigma Alpha Iota for a tea, and when Mrs. Brandstetter, their new house¬ mother arrived, the Kappas themselves gave a tea. I he pledges—God bless ’em—gave several after-date parties for the initiates, and these, with the usual roster of open houses for fraternity men and the army trainees, completed the Kappa social calendar for the year. B. W. O. C.’s abound at the Kappa house ... to name a few: Carolyn Jones, president of Y. W. C. A., vice-president of Mortar Board and of Phi Upsilon Omicron, and member ol Who’s Who in the College of Agriculture; Virginia Arnold, business manager of the Razorback, and member of Phi Alpha Theta; Jane Nichols, ASTU queen; and Mary Ella Crook, Razor- back cover girl, and “Sweetheart ol the Detachment” at the 54th AFTTD of Madison, Wis. The Kappa house was known this year as an abode for homeless Sig Alphs, and the girls broke away from the New Deal¬ ers to join the famous but losing Opposi¬ tion party along with the boys from the Alph house. Latest Sig Alph-Kappa combine was a Sig Alph Auxiliary, found¬ ed by Sig Alph pin holders, Virginia Ar¬ nold and Catherine Rightsell, complete with pledge ribbons and the weekly “gen¬ eral benediction,” administered just like the boys on Whiskey FI ill.

They had the highest grade-point on the campus, and the pledges won the scholarship cup for the second consecutive year. Two Pi Phis were added to the Phi Beta Kappa roll, and sisters Mary Jane Stormont and Maggie Spikes were chosen Razorback beauties one and two by John Powers. Following the annual after-rush stock show, the girls of the wine and blue entertained with a tea for faculty members, and several open houses for fraternity men and army trainees. Lynnette Wilson was elected editor for the coming year, thus giving Pi Phi two straight years of editorship. Caroline Roberts, Connie Stuck, and Kathleen Gammill brought glory home to the “sistern” by being selected for Who’s Who in American Colleges and Univer¬ sities. Ann Lawson In October the Arrow Lodge was converted into a night club for the girls and their dates to do a spot of honky-tonkying.

Brain child of Tri-Delt’s Virginia Shamel is Junior Panhellenic, little sister organ¬ ization to the big girls’ Panhellenic. Meetings are held twice a month in the Blue Room and at that time two delegates from the pledge class of each sorority meet to promote good fellowship and friendship between the pledges of each sorority. “Get ’em young and train ’em right” could well be the motto of Junior Panhellenic for it is hoped that by thus establishing friendly inter-sorority relationships between the pledge classes, some of the cut-throat competition may be eliminated from frat life. Following their big sisters’ example, Junior Panhellenic contributed to the war effort by rolling bandages at the Red Cross rooms. They also answered Mrs. Lawrence’s plea for dancing partners for lonely soldiers and spent Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights at the Union dancing with the boys stationed on the campus. Thursday night is guest night, and the Junior Pan-Hell girls arranged for each sor¬ ority house to have as dinner guests one pledge and one active from every other house. Membership is comprised of the president and one delegate from each sorority pledge class. The president is a permanent member for one year, but the delegate, if she is initiated, must resign in favor of the president of the new pledge class. The presi¬ dency rotates as in Panhellenic; each sorority receiving it in a pre-arranged schedule. To determine the first president, names were drawn out of a hat, and Kappa’s Martha Mc¬ Crary served for 1944, initial year of the organization. OFFICERS Martha McCrary. President Billie Langston.

The Interfraternity Council has had more than its share of troubles this year, since Uncle Sam needed the boys for more important activities. The council is composed of the president and one other representative from each of the six fraternities on the campus, and its chief aim is to keep peace among the members of these fraternities. The quota system, which caused so much disagreement last year among the boys, was not in effect this year, for the decreased number of male students has done away with the need for a quota upon the number of men in fraternities. Main accomplishment of the council this year, was the changing of the Constitution, which was formerly based on the semester plan, to apply to the quarter system now in effect. Highlight of the year’s activities for the group was the Interfraternity Dance held early this spring. Janie Brainerd, Tri-Delt, was chosen queen from girls nominated by each sorority on the campus, and was crowned at the dance. President Carter was between a rock and the well known hard place when the Dean and frat men disagreed on the quota. OFFICERS Gerry Carter. Tommy Moseley .... Jimmie Jones. Jack M. Pierce.

No¬ vember brought a freshman dinner dance. Then, when December rolled around, the local crescent and stars hit an all-time high with their annual beautiful Christmas formal, complete with cedar forests, snow, and hundreds of lights. Kay Zee entertained next with a spring formal in March. Pins and a relief of freshman duties went to Ed Dillon and I hompson Hargraves for being “best freshmen.” Mike Scroggins, erstwhile president of Kappa Sigma and one of the campus politicians, also is a member of the Student Senate and of Y. M. C. A. Jack Pierce, noted this year for his lusty yelling as one of the cheerleaders, is vice-president of the scarlet, green, and white. Jack takes that same office in ABC and serves as treasurer of the Interfraternity Council. Dural Hutchins made himself known right at the first and was elected president of the freshman class. He also played on the football team. Bill Lee is a member of Phi Eta Sigma and of AED. Other AED’s are Bruce Robbins and Ernest Fox. I. E. Moore, chairman of the social committee for the campus, was elected Business Manager of the Traveler in the spring election. Moore has served as Kappa Sig house manager. Mrs. Ethyl C. Driver of Little Rock has served as housemother since the fall of ’42. Her son, John, is a Kappa Sigma.

The local chapter, Gamma Chi Zeta, was organized on the Arkansas campus May 24, 1925. Lambda Chi has 109 chapters in the United States. Page 120 cjcuntna chi zeta chapter In October all the members and the pledges went out for the traditional Lambda Chi stag party. Almost every night the boys keep up another old tradition of hav¬ ing an “after hours” cup of coffee with singing and “shoot¬ ing the Bull” about current morsels ol campus gossip. The war hit the local chapt er pretty hard, but Lambda Chis like Jimmie Jones and John Ragsdale kept things moving. Jones was president of the chapter at the be¬ ginning of the year and is a member of A1EE, IRE, and ABC. Ragsdale is a member of ABC and of Black friars. “Rags,” as they all call him, is pinned to Dora Dean Johnson, Tri Delta. Several other members are in ABC, Blackfriars, A1EE, and ASCE. Governor Homer M. Atkins was made an honorary member of Lambda Chi in 1942. Faculty members and other men affiliated with the University who are members of this fraternity are Dr. D. M. Moore, Henry L. Coch¬ ran, Wade Kitchens, Dean John Clark Jordan, and George Stubblefield. Lambda Chi colors are purple, green, and gold; their flower is the white rose. The Cross and Crescent is the official Lambda Chi publication. After living in their present location for five years, the boys of Lambda Chi had their house on 340 Arkansas re¬ modeled this fall. Mother Varner is serving her first year as housemother. John “Rags” Ragsdale Page 121 PI KAPPA ALPHA OFFICERS MEMBERS Gerry Carter Charlie Williams J. D. O’Hara .

For years the Pikes have had the “friendliest fraternity on the campus.” In Intramurals, PiKA won first in bas¬ ketball. They were also rated at the top in the wrestling and boxing tournaments. Inspired by Mother Payne, the Garnet and Gold boys kept working throughout the year and as a result, com¬ pleted one of their most successful years in fraternity history. I he boys started the social ball rolling by giving a din¬ ner dance. In October they turned the chapter house into a gambling casino for their Monte Carlo party, and in November they put on their best Gay Nineties garb for a Bowery party. Next came a Founders’ Day ban¬ quet and the Senior banquet. In April they took their dates and went on a hayride to Lake Wedington. The annual spring formal completed their social activities. Outstanding men in the chapter were Gerry Carter, president of Interfraternity Council, member of Theta I au and the Publications Board, and a RAZORBACK pho¬ tographer; and Deno Nichols, the leading scorer of the Razorbacks in conference basketball who won the Neil Martin trophy, an award for the best athlete in the state of Arkansas, lie was also chosen as an All-Star in the southwest. PiKA was organized at the University of Virginia, in 1868. The local chapter was organized in 1904. Gerry Carter Page 123 First row: Atkinson, Bailey, Barham, Barnes, Brians.

In spite of frequent elections of officers to cooperate with the draft boards, the Sig Alphs played their usual good game this year with prexy “T” Moseley at their head. Co-ed diaries mark never to he forgotten the SAL s fall dinner dance, and the buffet supper and formal in February. On April Fool’s Day the boys gave their an¬ nual Honky Tonk party, decorating the house to resemble some of the more notorious places of entertainment. The Sig Alphs celebrated their founding with a ban¬ quet at the Washington 1 lotel in February. An outing in early April and a spring dance completed the SAE social calendar. With the aid of Ransom Jackson, Grim Locke and other Sig Alph athletes, Alpha Upsilon won second place in intramural volleyball. Per usual the Sig Alphs politically opposed the New Deal, and this year the chapter boasted the only Opposi¬ tion candidate to be elected, Jack West who was elected senator from the Law School. Jack modestly claims to be the minority leader of the senate, in addition to his other duties as chairman of the War Memorial Drive, vice-president of Blue Key and student manager of ath¬ letics. The Sig Alphs have lived in their pres¬ ent location for fourteen years, and pop¬ ular Mother Jodie has been with them all those fourteen years. The Arkansas Alpha Upsilon chapter was organized in 1894 . T. Moseley Page 125 First row: Baker, A. Bonds, B. Bonds, H. Bonds. Second row: Cabler, Campbell, Dickerson, Duncan.

Taking over the gavel after jack’s departure for med¬ ical school was Robert Gibson, who is intramural man¬ ager and president of next year’s Senior Class. In October the Sigma Chis and their dates put on kindergarten clothes and turned their house into a tod¬ dlers paradise for their annual kid party. I he fall din¬ ner dance featured, as usual, more of Mother W itts good food. Khaki-clad Sigma Chis stationed on the campus flocked to the Friday night “drop-in-and-bring-your date ’ affairs which the Skec boys originated this year. At their spring formal on the last day of March, Ruth Taylor, a I ri-Delt, was named “Sweetheart of Sigma Chi,” and all the girls took home crested Sigma Chi rings as favors. Jim Penick and Merrill Shue led the Sigma Chis to top position in intramural touchball and volley ball. 1 he Skees leave all financial matters in the capable hands of Jim Sloan who is a member of Blue Key, Phi Alpha Theta, Commerce Guild, the Student Social Committee, chairman of the Board of Elections, sen¬ ator from the College of Business Admin¬ istration; and a member of the publica¬ tions board.

The two members who were in the house at the beginning of the year “manned their stations” and new pledges moved in in time to welcome brothers Jack Lewis, Blue Key and ex-editor of the Razorback, and Billy Phillips, Blue Key and past president of Sigma Nu, back to the campus. Sigma Nus from 17 different col¬ leges came to the campus with the ASTU. Sweetest Sigma Nu memories of 1943-44 include the annual Sadie Hawkins Day, which the Sigma Nu’s origin¬ ated at Arkansas; the hayride to Lake Wedington; stag parties on Christmas and New ear’s—the latter to cele¬ brate their 75th anniversary; and the orchid formal in the spring. Bill Oglesby, who served as president during the first quarter, is president of the Senior class, a member of the International Relations Club, and of the Commerce Guild. The Sigma Nus moved to a new house on Shady Ave¬ nue, Mother Smyer came as house mother, and Leroy “Brushwood” Nelson was given control of the gavel. Serenades were made famous by the crooning of George “Sinatra” Gearhart and Barry Hawkins. Gear¬ hart vied for top honors among campus entertainers until Uncle Sam interferred. Ronald “Pete” Gardner and Ford Gar¬ vin left their pins at the Tri-Delt house in the keeping of Jean Richards and Helen Bohe, while Mac Howington pinned Pi Phi Hervey Lee Wallace. Sigma Nu is represented in all scholastic and social organizations on the campus. This is the 40th year for the Arkansas Gamma Upsilon chapter. Leroy Nelson Page 129 Ir J H 0 U s E S B. Hfck nt CARNALL HALL Since Carnall Hall was opened early this September to house the rushees, it has had a long and active year. Just to prove that making good grades and having successful parties and dances weren ' t their only accomplishments, the girls kept up their tradition of being tops in sports, and won first place in the annual Intramural Basketball and Softball tournaments. Pajama parties were held each month, and on Valentine’s Day a skit, entitled “Dr. Cupid’s Heart Hospital” was presented with Judith Loomis as Dr. Cupid and Kirby Lee Hill as her assistant. The “heart troubles” of the different girls were diagnosed and sure cures were prescribed. Doughnuts and apples were then served to the “patients.” Each new Air Corps squadron arriving on the campus was, while still restricted, en¬ tertained with an open house at the hall. The squadrons attended in a body on Sunday afternoons for two hours of dancing, games, and other entertainment. It is the purpose of the Carnall Hall Governing Board to promote good will and friendship among the girls and to guide the house in making decisions. The Board also serves as a discipline committee to enforce the dormitory rules. President Alice Houston is the newly elected vice-president of the Student Body, and she is also treasurer of Phi Upsilon Omicron, vice-president of the Llome Economics club, Rural Work chairman of AWS, social chairman of W. A. A., and last year a member of the Sophomore Council. Kirby Lee Hill, vice-president of Carnall Hall, and Mary Mar¬ garet Mollica, treasurer, are both members of Mortar Board.

Secretary-Treasurer The newest house on the campus, Baker House came into being in the fall of 1943. In addition to being the newest, it is also the most democratic, for it welcomes all men who desire to move into 326 Rollston. Its purpose is to provide a home and wholesome fel¬ lowship for University Men. Housemother Mrs. C. A. Baker is known as “Stell” to all of the boys, and charms them with her excellent cooking. Six boys have previously served in the armed forces of the United States, and now have medical discharges. These boys are being sent back to school by the government at government expense. Two of these are entitled to wear overseas ribbons. The boys are divided into two groups, those that have had previous college work, and those who have not attended college before. The ones who have had college work are being allowed to take courses of their own choice, after receiving the approval of the university, but the others are taking a prescribed course which will prepare them for gen¬ eral college work. Paul Mingo was with the Medical Corps at Camp Barkley, Texas, for eleven months before receiving his discharge. Clarence Wilson served as an aerial gunner for a year until he too became a veteran of World War II. Almost a shavetail is the story of Morris Vanderbilt, for he was in Ordnance Offi¬ cers Candidate School when he was discharged. Rhody Nicholas, Razorback football star, was stationed with the Coast Artillery for almost a year before he entered the University of Arkansas. Two of the Baker House boys have overseas service on their record. Walter Rod¬ gers was on Anti-Submarine patrol duty with the Air Corps in the Gulf of Mexico. John Murphy was a Marine Paratrooper and saw action in the Solomon Islands. An injury received in a parachute jump while in the states warranted his medical dis¬ charge.

President this year is Robert Oates, Senior Engineering student from Russellville. Robert has proved himself an outstanding student on the campus, being a member of Tau Beta Pi, honorary mathematics fraternity, and Omicron Delta Kappa, honorary for Senior men. In the spring Robert was chosen for membership in the Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. lie is now waiting his call to the Navy. In fact by the time this is published, it will have come and he will have gone. Notwithstanding the influence their intellectual prexy must wield, Baker House boys don’t neglect the more athletic side of their college educations. In fact they really went to town there. There are seven members of the U A” Club in the house: Alton Baldwin, Lamar Dinglar, John P. Carpenter, Marvin Lindsay, Melvin McGaha, Rhody Nicholas, Billy Ray Randolph. Alton Baldwin made honorable mention on the All-American foot¬ ball team, and Lamar Dinglar was co-captain of the Razorbacks this year. Baker House also competed in the Intramurals, going to the finals in the basketball tournament, only to be beaten by the PiKA’s. The number of boys living in the house dropped from twenty-three to eighteen when Dale Bumpers, Wendell Smith, J. U. Reynolds, J. P. Carpenter, and Billy Ray Randolph answered their call to Uncle Sam’s armed services. Alton Baldwin Wilbern E. Bobo Dale Bumpers John P. Carpenter Elmer B. Church Lamar Dinglar MEMBERS Joe W.

President Dee Patterson .Vice-President Harlan Holmes .Secretary Carl Gamel .Treasurer Organized in 1939, ECHO (short for Engineers Cooperative Housing Organiza¬ tion) is now in its fifth year and still on the same old corner of Arkansas and Maple. Founded by Harold Engstron and Charles Hogan at the University, this is the only house of its kind in the United States. The purposes of ECHO are to secure for deserving young men the advantage of cooperative efforts in providing room and board; to foster a spirit of fellowship; and to promote social activities within the group and on the campus. Prospective members are selected by the boys who choose them on the basis of grade point and personality. They must have a majority vote. Strangely enough, twenty-five per cent of them are not engineers. High in scholarship, the boys have an average grade point of 3.5. They were tops in grades among the boys’ houses for the year, with the exception of one quarter. Honor senior in Engine school was Francis Strabala. President Jimmy Brown has held many important positions on the campus. Elected St. Pat, honored patron of the Engine school, he has also served as editor of the Engineer this past year and will continue to do so next year until Uncle Sam calls. In his spare moments he was student manager of the Union. Joe Weisiger also attained prominence as president of the Associated Students, AIEE treasurer, and owner of a Blue Key. Other outstanding men in the house were Dee Pat¬ terson, president of the Engineering Council and AIEE, and also a member of Blue Key; and Clifford Koger, house manager, who was president of AlChE, and treasurer of the Engineering Council.

They have had a finger in just about every campus pie this past year. Right off the bat they went in a body to the Homecoming game to honor Queen Marjorie Evans. Marjorie was also president of Rootin’ Rubes, assistant ADA manager, and one of the four members of Who’s Who in the College of Agriculture. After the game the girls held an open house dance. When November 14 rolled around they had another dance, this time just for the heck of the thing. From December 3—15th they observed Pollyanna Week in which they made a point of doing nice things for secret friends. On January 15 they rolled up the rugs again for another house dance, and on February 12 the pledges entertained the initiates with a Valentine party. The University of Arkansas’ Women’s 4-H House was the first of its kind in the United States, and was also the first cooperative house on this campus. It was organized on September 10, 1932 for the purpose of giving girls from rural communities an oppor¬ tunity to attend college at minimum expense. It is now in its twelfth year. To be eligible for membership a girl must be a former 4-H Club member and must be recommended by the Flome Demonstration Agent and the County Agent. House mother Mrs. Caswell McRae is the senior house mother on the campus, in terms of service, for she is completing her 21st year as a house mother. Usually good for at least two marriages a year, this year the girls have bettered their record, celebrating the weddings of Trade Lee Nicks and Dick Kendrick, Bobbie Nail and Dan Elliott, and Arlene Marshall and Jack Keeling.

President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Theta Taus hold the unique honor of having the president of associated students for two years in succession. Joe Weisiger held the office this year, and Jack Berry is the president-elect for the coming year. The slide rule boys were not lacking in social activities this year. They opened the fall quarter with an initiation ceremony on Saturday, September 18, followed by a drop- in at the chapter house after the football game that afternoon. The annual Founder’s Day banquet was held on October 12. Later in the fall was a combination hayride and weiner roast at Lake Wedington. In the spring, Wedington was the scene of another hayride for members and their dates on Saturday, April 22. Theta Tau boasts a full house of outstanding members. Jimmie Brown is assistant manager of the student union, editor of the Arkansas Engineer , president-elect of ASME and the Engineering council, was Saint Patrick on Engineer’s Day, and is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, organization for outstanding men on the campus. Joe Weisiger is president of associated students, member of Blue Key, and is listed in Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. 11 is successor as president of the student body, Jack Berry, is a member of ASME and of Omicron Delta Kappa. Robert Duncan was president of ASME, member of Engineering council, and served as Theta Tau house manager and president before going to work for Westinghouse. Tom Logan, called the u EE’s gift to the Kappas,” is a member of Pi Mu Epsilon, Engineering council, student senate, ODK, Arkansas Press club, and was editor of the Arkansas Engineer last year. Tom graduated in March, and besides going to work for Westinghouse, went to the altar with Kappa Ruth Horton. In addition to these BMOC’s, Theta Tau boasts two members of Tau Beta Pi and five Pi Mu Epsilon members.

Theta Taus claim that they have further proof of the engineer’s edge over the agris. Theta Tan house mother, Mother Kate, who was Alpha Gamma Rho house mother for ten years, is now considered a full-fledged engineer. They say that it took only one year to convert her from agri to engineer, proving that the engineers have odds of ten to one over the agris. Theta Tau is a national engineering fraternity with membership not based upon scholarship. Members, however, are proud of their scholastic record for this year and for years in the past. Fhe organization was founded as “Hammer and Tongs” at the University of Min¬ nesota on October 15, 1904. The Greek letter name was adopted in 1911. Upsilon chapter was established at the University of Arkansas in 1928, and has been active both in affairs of the Engineering school and of the University as a whole ever since. It was from the first intended to be a professional fraternity to inculcate high ethical and professional standards and to foster close fraternal relations among its members.

Heading the list of honors taken by girls this year is Lucy Belle Bledsoe, Senior English major, who made Phi Beta Kappa. Millie Young, house president, is vice- president of the Junior Class. Millie leaves in April for Medical School in Little Rock. La Donna Bird, Senior Social Welfare major, is House Manager this year. Jaunice Smith is a member of Sigma Alpha Iota, honorary music fraternity. Big events of the year: Mary Jean Scobee and Jaunice Smith wearing new diamonds —third finger, left hand. Exemplifying the high scholastic standing of the house on the campus, twenty-five per cent of the girls are on the honor roll this year. In spite of the high grade points, social activities have not been overlooked. Start¬ ing things off in October was the annual Hallowe’en party. In November Mrs. Scott treated the girls to a very special Thanksgiving dinner. The highlight of the year was the Christmas dinner party. The dining room was decorated with streamers from the light to each corner of the table, and the centerpiece was of cut flowers. After dinner the girls gathered around the Christmas tree in the living room to exchange gifts, sing, and have a memorable evening. On Valentine’s Day, the house was decorated in the Valentine motif, and a party was held after dates were called. Organized fourteen years ago by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Scott, Scott House, for the past six years, has occupied the blue and white colonial frame house on Storer Street.

When work started on the book last summer, no one thought we would at some time be able to write “thirty” to it. Time, however, made a liar out of us, for which we are eternally grateful. Life on “Publications Row” is more than a little hectic, and as a steady diet would be too exhilirating. WcVe enjoyed our dose of it, though, and hope that the product of our effort is to your liking. The staff has been small this year, and everyone has had to work harder than usual. It was difficult to assign staff positions at the end of the year, for everyone did double duty. Virginia Arnold and Marianne Wertheim of the business staff turned in some of the best of the copy, and associate editor Joan Dorris w r orked hard rounding up wayward organizations who forgot to send in their twelve-fifty per page. An editor can do nothing without a reliable and enthusiastic staff, and we were fortunate this year in having just such a one. Bill Brown, Charles Jolliff, and Hal Lockman did a splendid job on the sports section, and Johnny McAdams squeezed the last nickel out of the up-town advertisers. Bill Heerwagen drew half of the cartoons before he left to become Midship¬ man William R. Heerwagen at Annapolis, and Betty Hendrick finished them. Hers are the clever figures at the bottom of the class-panels, too. Photogs Charlie Johnson and Gerry Carter spent half of their waking hours snapping, developing, and printing the candid shots found in the book. Jimmy Brown wrote copy for the Engineering organizations, Betty Teeter for the Agri ones, and Ellen Wadley the Deans.

None of the commercial photog¬ raphers were able to get enough film to take the thousand odd class pictures, so Mr. Green was persuaded to make pictures of the new students and to furnish, for a nominal fee, prints of last year’s pictures of the upper-classmen. Strangely enough the boys ob¬ jected more strongly than the girls to having the old pictures used. Candid photographers Johnson and Carter found Speed Graphic and Argus film hard to obtain, and flash-bulbs almost non-existent. 1 hey finally cornered a shipment of small bulbs, but were never able to get the focal-plane ones necessary for the quick action basketball shots. None of the Fayetteville studios were able to develop and print Charlie s and Gerry’s pictures, so the boys set up a darkroom in the basement of the PiKA house and did all of the work themselves. The book was produced on a shoestring budget due to the smaller enrollment. In¬ stead of the usual three hundred pages, this year’s Razorback has only two hundred, paper shortages and fewer organizations contributing to the need for the decrease. Be¬ cause cuts are the most expensive item in publishing a yearbook, there are only twelve pages of features. Theme this year is “The University at War,” and to our knowledge it is the first year that a Razorback has been dedicated to the school itself. Our thanks to Mr. R. C. Walker and Mrs. Paul E. lard of Southwestern Engrav¬ ing Co. who never turned down a call for help. “Smokey Joe” T halheimer and Bunn Bell were always present to counsel and build morale. Without these four people, the 1944 Razorback could never have gone to press. RAZORBACK Page 141 EDITORIAL STAFF Connie Stuck. Editor-in-Chief Lynnette Wilson. Assistant Editor Jean Carroll.

Head men on the staff (or should we say “women”) were Connie Stuck, editor, and Eula Nell Edwards, business manager, who served in these same capacities during the ensuing school year. Something new in the way of columns produced during the summer quarter were: “Shipwreck Slants,” by George “Shipwreck” Kelly, a column of comment on various cam¬ pus activities; “Around the Campus,” which gave news of students at home for the summer, and told of the chio Edwards had a Pi Phi editor, but “comings and goings” of summer visitors. One of the biggest jobs undertaken by the Traveler last summer was the sponsorship of the Uni¬ versity War Bond Stamp Drive, held in direct connec¬ tion with the nation-wide program to raise funds for building the Shangri La. Their program heartily en¬ dorsed by the University War Council, students sold stamps and bonds every day in the Union from 8 a. m. until 4 p. m. Results of this work topped all former records of war bond and stamp sales on the Arkansas campus, as a net profit of $2,045.85 was realized, the highest previous record being $2,000, established by Associated Women Students last February. The last summer issue of the Traveler came out on August 25, and beginning on Friday, September 24, editions for the regular school term were issued weekly. she managed to keep happy. TRAVELER Page 142 With Editor-in-Chief Stuck at the helm, the Traveler progressed smoothly on its way, taking into due consideration two noticeable shortages—first, of paper, and second (no less important), of men and staff workers. However, the staff managed the regular four- page issue each week, and, on occasion, put out a six-page edition. The fact that “women definitely have possibilities” is heartily agreed upon now by University journalists, as women writers, of necessity, carried on most of the regular duties. Considerable comment about comings and goings of Junior RO TC officers at the Uni¬ versity afforded front page stories for many an issue. The story goes that certain re¬ porters had ways of obtaining “inside information,” and many were the times that army authorities and aspiring journalists disagreed as to the printability of such information, which, we might add, usually found its way into a column or two on the front page. During the school year, several more new columns appeared in the Traveler , each one adding more student interest to the paper. While the Junior Officers were on the campus, a column called “Sad Shack Scribblin’s” gave us an idea of how army life agreed or disagreed with some of our former University men. A column called “Damosel,” written by Joan Dorris, gave femmes the latest information as to “what was being worn where and by whom.” Later in the year, this column was replaced by “Seen on the Cam¬ pus,” still for the gals, and describing fads and fashions of all kinds being displayed by Arkansas co-eds. “Personality Parade” was the Traveler’s latest “new” column. Each week an out¬ standing student was interviewed for the column, and his or her picture was run with the write-up. Soon after its first appearance, this column aroused student interest and might be called one of the paper’s most popular features. TRAVELER Page 143 ARKANSAS AGRICULTURIST STAFF Janive Segraves.

Assistants For the first time in the history of its publication, a girl has been in the editor’s chair of the Agriculturist, student publication for the College of Agriculture. Room 308 on “Publications Row,” editorial office of the Agriculturist , felt the impact of the feminine element into journalism, as Editor Janive Segraves and Business Manager Helen Louise King assumed their duties for the year. The publication contains news and feature stories from every corner of the college combined with facts and figures from agricultural research, items of interest in the field of agriculture, and accounts of Agri college activities. A traditional feature of each issue, The Betty Lamp, contains news and items of interest from the Home Economics De¬ partment. On its two pages you may read of the trials and tribulations of life in the Home Management House, reports of the Home Lc Club meetings, op¬ portunities in the field of Home Economics and help¬ ful household hints. A new feature this year is the column “Active Agris,” personality sketches of students selected from the college for their outstanding records and participa¬ tion in college activities, written by Glen Pye. Each issue carries a monthly letter from the Dean of the College concerning some timely topic of direct interest to those majoring in the various phases of agri¬ cultural work. The news articles in the publication this year covered a variety of topics, all related to agricultural or IT ome Economics work. P acts and figures furnished by U. S. Government Bulletins, converted into a more readable style, formed the basis for some very interest- Helen Louise wore a Navy pin, but managed to keep her mind on her work. Agris also chose her for their queen. AGRICULTURIST Page 144 First row: Aldridge, Davenport, Edwards, Evans, Foley, Foreman, Gallegly, Hearnsberger.

A series of articles “Agriculture in World War II " kept the readers up to date on agriculture’s contribution to the war effort. Perhaps the most popular page of all was the monthly feature devoted to those funnybone ticklers . . . “Grunts and Squeals.” The issue on which more time, more energy, effort, and worry is concentrated is the traditional pink Agri Day edition distributed at the Agri Day convocation. This year’s Agri Day edition was appropriately dedicated to the boys from the College of Agriculture in the armed services, with special tribute being paid to those four who have lost their lives. Having as its central theme Agri Day, Agri Day, and more about Agri Day, the special Agri Day edition contained the program for the day, history of Agri Day on the campus of the University of Arkansas, and pictures of the various organizations connected with Agri School. This issue contained the news that all Agris are always anxious to read . . . announcement of selections of Agri Queen and Who’s Who in the College of Agri¬ culture. A look at the staff as compared with that of years gone by shows a decided increase in the numbers of girls selected to fill the positions ... in fact, the co-eds have an estab¬ lished monopoly. Despite the manpower shortage, paper shortage, and ink shortage the Agriculturist has met every publication date, although somewhat reduced in size. This publication is not only a popular source of information on the campus, but has a wide state circulation being sent to colleges, high schools, farms, and agricultural workers throughout the state.

Assistants After two record years of thirty-man staffs, the Arkansas Engineer started its thirty- second year of publication with a much smaller force, due to the great number of engi¬ neers called out of school by the ERC, the advanced ROTC, and the draft. Heading this year’s Engineer were Editor Jimmy Brown of Rogers and Business Manager Durben Miller of Paragould. Big complication was getting to press on time—all the feminine editors, business managers, and staff members running by the door of the only all-male staff on Publications Row were too distracting to the boys. Most of the articles this year were devoted to the correlation of engineering and the war effort. The best seminar paper from each of the departments was again printed in the Engineer’s Day edition. These papers, selected by the department heads were: Gas Turbines by Buron Owen from the Mechanical department; Grand Coulee Dam by Robert Oates from the Civil department; Selsyn Control by J. C. Mallett from the Electrical department; and Chem¬ ical Products and Testing, prepared by Carl Gamel and Charles Oxford. “Sluggo” never said an unnecessary word, but he met every deadline. Most of the old features again appeared in the pages of the Engineer , and some new ones were started. Tom Wheat, senior ChE, wrote Engine-House News- Record, a two-page spread devoted to news coverage among the various engineering organizations. The Dean’s Page appeared in several of the is¬ sues, though the rushed registration of the Army engi¬ neers kept it out once or twice. In this page, Dean Stocker published an editorial on any timely subject he wished to choose. Most of the editorials were on Selective Service system, although regulations changed ENGINEER Page 146 First row: Allman, Austin, Bonds, Brown, Duncan, Hester, Hill.

Due to laxity of censorship (or none at all), Cracked Retorts, the most widely read page on the campus, was in lull swing in all issues. Ben White, junior ChE, now in the Navy, prepared the Retorts, but where he got them is a deep, dark secret, known only to the engineers. New this year was the cover of the magazine, which was changed to a full-page pic¬ ture of some timely engineering device. Colors were plentiful, and comments usually ran from u What a beautiful baby pink” from Ticker Editor Shamel to “Gad, where did you get that?” from the staff. The publication schedule also had to be changed due to the quarter system, so that the magazine is now published in the months of January, April, July, and October, or about the middle of each quarter. When the schedule was changed, almost all of the national advertising was lost for the first issue, and Business Manager Miller went around in tears for three months. However, he made up for it by getting as much as possible for the subsequent issues. His staff even got so many ads for the Engineers’ Day edition that one of the scheduled pages of jokes had to be cut at the last minute. Due to transportation difficulties and lack of funds, only one delegate was sent to the annual ECMA convention, which was held this year at Marquette University in Milwau¬ kee. Editor Brown reported that “the beer that made Milwaukee famous” was still only five cents, and much more plentiful than at George’s. At the convention, the Engineer was given an award for Honorable Mention for Best Student Articles for the year 1942 and 1943. This brings the number of framed awards on the wall of the office to six. ENGINEER Page 147 GUILD TICKER STAFF Shamel worked long and late getting the Ticker to press.

Advertising Assistants May fifth was a big day for the “white collar gals” and future business men as on that day classes were dismissed and students celebrated their third annual Commerce Day. The Guild Ticker, official publication of the College of Business Administration, made its first appearance of the year on that date. The Guild Ticker went to press this year with almost a complete absence of men, Cabler, 1 larrison, and Wunderlin being the only men on the staff. Lack of men didn’t seem to bother the staff, however, because the largest magazine of its history was distributed to over seven-hundred people. The general layout was changed and improved with some new features added. The ever popular “Ticker Ticklers” edited by Hugh Harri¬ son held a major interest for some while others were more interested in “Who’s Who,” the “Commerce Queen,” and “The Dean’s Pen,” written by Dean Paul Milam. The Business School’s recognition of students now in the armed services was written by Kathleen Gammill in a new feature article entitled “Salute to the Services.” Senior Commerce student Dickinson got practical experience financing the Ticker . The Commerce Guild financed the expense of send¬ ing a copy of the Ticker to every ex-business school student whose name was on the mailing list of Busi¬ ness School’s News Letter edited by Mrs. Pearl Green, faculty member. The general theme of this year’s Guild Ticker was “The South and Arkansas in the Post-War World.” Doris Cook made the stabilization Fund Plan surprisingly simple and understandable. Kirby Lee Hill answered many of the questions of “Why Choose Arkansas” in preference to other states upon graduation. Betty Brown discussed labor’s view-points GUILD TICKER Page 148 First row: Brown, Cabler, Cook, Dickinson, Dukeminier, Embury, Erhart.

Beverly Behl explained the South’s prospects for profit in the postwar world and Betty Gary was the author of “What Arkansas Has to Offer.” Ann Dukeminier did a splendid job statistically explaining the effect of the war on retail sales in Arkansas department stores. After looking over varied colors and hues Editor Shamel chose the Commerce School’s official color, blue, for the Comerce Day edition. An inset of Old Main dis¬ tinguished it from past Commerce Day issues. Heading this year’s staff were Editor Virginia Shamel, of Eittle Rock and Business Manager Ann Dickinson, of Fayetteville. Editor Shamel’s chief worries were whether copy would be too long or too short and if cuts, copy and ads would meet the press dead¬ line. Staff members unanimously agreed that Shamel was every inch the capable editor, and that she successfully scattered the illusions that men are more efficient than women. Business Manager Dickinson bit her nails wondering if out-of-town advertising was ever going to reach Fayetteville. Kathleen Gammill of Washington, I). C., was a valuable assistant on the editorial staff and helped share the worries and responsibilities while Lou Alice Wright helped sister Ann from the beginning in securing the Fayetteville ads. Key charms were awarded to the four outstanding members of the staff. These were presented at the convocation May fifth and recipients were editor Virginia Shamel; associate editor Kathleen Gammill; business manager Ann Dickinson; and assistant busi¬ ness manager Lou Alice Wright.

Activities of Alpha Epsilon Delta, honorary pre-med fraternity, consisted for the most part of monthly dinners at the Washington hotel. At these dinners, members gave reports on the club work—and then, of course, they ate. At one of these dinner-meetings, Dean Robertson, of the University med school at Little Rock, made a speech. Members Marty Nemec and Billy Lee, also gave talks at different meetings. Requirements for membership in Alpha Epsilon Delta include having a three point grade average and being a pre-med student. Members were entertained after one of the weekly meetings by a party at the home of Dr. Samul C. Dellinger, zoology professor. The purpose of the club is to encourage outstanding pre-medical work, and to help prepare pre-med students for the spirit of the medical school. President Nancy Hill doubles as president of the Pre-Med club, and secretary of mixed chorus, to mention but a few of her many activities. BWOC Hill has also been elected vice-president of the Association of Women Students for next year. Members met every Thursday afternoon at 5 o’clock in the chemistry building where Austin Doren, campus wit, entertained everyone with fantastic tales about his 20-room apartment. The local chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta was founded in 1938 as Arkansas Alpha chapter. Other chapters of this national organization are to be found in pre-med schools throughout the country.

Freshman women who have a five point accumulative grade average during the first two quarters are chosen for membership in Alpha Lambda Delta, national honorary freshman woman’s fraternity. This chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta was installed two years ago on the campus through the efforts of Dean Scudder in the interest of higher scholastic standards among Freshman girls. The twelve selected from the freshman women for Alpha Lambda Delta comprise the largest group to be pledged during its two years of existence on this campus. At the formal pledging ceremony in April, the following donned their pledge ribbons oi red and gold: Jane Lee Bankson, Patricia Bliss, Dojelo Crabaugh, Mildred Crenshaw, Shirley Hawthorne, Patsy Poindexter, Charleen Reid, Jo Anne Sears, Nancy Lou Spurgin, Gladys Taylor, Jean Thomas, and Helen White. In September Alpha Lambda Delta entertained all freshman women at a coco-cola to acquaint them with the standards of Alpha Lambda Delta as an incentive for bigger and better grade points. Alpha Lambda Delta is a national Fraternity having forty-seven chapters, in twenty- seven states. The society was founded at the University of Illinois in 1924, and two years later when the second chapter was installed at Purdue University it became a national organization. The group is a sister fraternity to Phi Eta Sigma, national honor¬ ary scholastic fraternity for freshman boys.

Requirements for membership in the organization are a cumulative four point aver¬ age, junior or senior standing, a specified number of hours in the College of Education, and outstanding personal qualities. Each year Kappa Delta Pi presents a scholarship award to the highest ranking junior in the College of Education. This organization was founded at the University of Illinois in 1911 for the purpose of encouraging intellectual and scholastic standards among education students, and to recognize the year’s outstanding contributions to the educational world. Kappa Delta Pi came to this campus in 1924 when a petition was granted to the Education Club. Outstanding affairs of the year are the initiation banquets held at the beginning of each quarter. Pledges are required to provide the program for the initiation banquet. Favorite subject of the neophytes is the Education faculty and many a time have Messers. Hotz, Cross, Kronenberg and Bent squirmed under the friendly ribbing. Because of the loss of students during the war, the activities of Kappa Delta Pi have been somewhat curtailed during 1944.

The purpose of Lambda Tau is to further an interest in the composition and appre¬ ciation of literature, and to establish closer contacts between students and faculty who share a common pleasure in literature and its creation. To be one of the fifteen eligible for membership, women must make a four point in all English courses and at least a three point five in all other courses. Each spring an initiation banquet is held, at which each new member must present an original composition on any subject in which she is interested. Another annual affair is the contest, held each year in some phase of writing. This year’s contest is in the essay field, and cash prizes are being offered. Lambda Tau was founded at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, and the local chap¬ ter was established in 1913 by Miss Jobelle Holcombe, present sponsor. The Arkansas chapter is the only remaining active one in the United States. New members who were pledged this spring are: Ellen Wadley, Eula Nell Ed¬ wards, Betty Farmer, Lucy Belle Bledsoe, Juanita Wahl, Alice Henderson, Melba Wag¬ ner, Mary Clair Blair, Freda Stafford, Gail McWilliams, Lucille Welch, Jean Thomas, and Patricia Bliss.

Mortar Board, honorary organization for outstanding senior women, was founded on the University of Arkansas campus on May 18, 1940 by Octagon, then a local honor¬ ary women’s society. The purpose of the group is stated tluisly: u To provide cooperation between honor societies, promote college loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship among University women; to maintain a high standard of scholarship, to recognize and encour¬ age leadership, and to stimulate and develop a finer type of college woman.” Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and service, the annual “tapping” of newly-elected girls taking place at the annual AWS spring festival. In addition to its other duties, Mortar Board also acts as an advisory committee for women transfer students, and joins with Sophomore Council in giving a party for all new women students at the beginning of each year. As an outside activity, this year the group gave a series of parties, entertaining wives of servicemen. These functions were held in the University club rooms. Mortar Board holds its regular meetings once every two weeks, in the Blue Room of the Student Union, at 5 p. m. Advisers for the organization are: Mrs. Daisy Hol¬ comb, Miss Lesley Vinal, and Mrs. A. L. Venable. Dorothy Zeek, Chi Omega, from Little Rock, was president of the organization this year. Each year, as a special award, Mortar Board gives a $25 war bond to the freshman girl making the highest grade point; this year, however, the award was not given. The Towle Silver Survey was carried out this year per usual. Senior girls feel that this is the only dignified way they have to raise money, but profits were smaller this year as there were fewer senior women.

Chio-Pi Phi rivalries look pale beside the gentlemen’s disagreements. Be that as it may, ODK membership comprises some of the better known campus figures, the organization being to most of its members the crowning achievement to a suc¬ cession of honors. Bids are determined on the point system. With important positions such as Traveler or RAZORBACK editor counting only three points, it takes a big man to accumulate the 15—20 points in activities necessary for membership. The five phases of campus life recognized by ODK are scholarship, athletics, social and religious activities, publications, and dramatic, musical or other cultural activities. Membership is limited to juniors and initiation is held with fall and spring banquets. .The main purpose of Omnicron Delta Kappa is to recognize men who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities. Other purposes are: to inspire stu¬ dents to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines; to bring together the most representative men in all phases of college life and thus create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of their institution on questions of local and intercollegiate interest; and to bring together members of the faculty and student body of the institu¬ tion on a basis of mutual interest and understanding. A member of the Association of College Honor Societies, Omicron Delta Kappa confers membership solely on the basis of character and leadership, irrespective of mem¬ bership in, or affiliation with, other organizations. Founded at Washington and Lee University on December 3, 1914, ODK now has 46 chapters in as many universities. Beta Circle was founded at the University of Arkan¬ sas, June 2, 1939.

Since that date, chapters of the fraternity have spread to various colleges and universities all over the country. The local chapter was revived in 1941 after a slumber of several years, and since that time has made rapid strides to take its place as one of the most active groups on the campus. Its requirements are 12 hours of history with a “B” average, and a k ‘B” average in two-thirds of the remainder of class hours. Programs for many years have featured round table discussions ot current topics and literature. These programs were continued this year, and a new practice of having out¬ side speakers give talks and book reviews was inaugurated. Discussions this year have been on the general theme of The United Nations , the group realizing the importance of knowing our allies better. Guest speakers have been both from the faculty and from the student body. Open forum discussions with vigorous argument have added much to interest in contemporary history. The national fraternity magazine, The Historian, is published quarterly. Last year an article by Dr. Dorsey Jones was featured in the fall issue of the magazine. President Raymond Trammell, Jr., is a member of Phi Alpha Delta, honorary Law fraternity. Freeland Romans, instructor in the Chemistry department, who received his Master’s Degree last June is one of the outstanding members of Phi Alpha Theta.

The intellectuals who wear that coveted Phi Beta Kappa key are among the most out¬ standing students on the campus, being known primarily for their achievements along the scholastic line. Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest fraternal organization in the United States, and the pre-eminent honor society. Membership is restricted to those liberal arts students who are candidates for a B. A. or a B. S. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences. Members are selected from a chosen few because of their outstanding character, attainments, and scholarship. Prospective members must have a four point grade average, but a four point five is the average accumulative among Phi Bete students. Among those elected to the fraternity in 1943-1944, the lowest grade average was four point nine. This honorary organization was established at the College of William and Mary in Virginia on December 5, 1776, and made its first appearance on the Arkansas campus with the founding of Alpha chapter on April 4, 1932. New members are elected twice a year, and you ' ll find a long list of campus activities trailing each of their names in the Razorback, as well as imposing cumulative grade points caused by that super-abundance of gray matter.

Phi Chi Alpha, women’s professional business fraternity, is one of the more recent organizations of the College of Business Administration. Formerly the Women’s Com¬ merce Club, Phi Chi Alpha was organized in April, 1942, under the leadership of Helen Price, first chairman of the Governing Board. There were thirteen charter members, all interested in the furtherance of business and professional activities among the women stu¬ dents of the University of Arkansas. The purpose of Phi Chi Alpha is primarily to encour¬ age scholarship and friendliness among women students in the College of Business Admin¬ istration. Candidates for membership are selected by invitation on a basis of scholarship, leadership, and personality. At the end of each quarter, initiation was held for new members and a party followed. On Commerce Day, May 5th, a breakfast was held for members, faculty advisors and sponsors of Phi Chi Alpha. Dean Paul M. Milam and Dr. George E. Hunsberger are the faculty advisors of Phi Chi Alpha for 1943-44. Mrs. Paul M. Milam, Mrs. George E. Hunsberger, and Mrs. Edgar Bethell are the sponsors for this school year. Mary Flo Henry, senior from McAlester, Oklahoma, is the present Chairman of the Governing Council. She is also on the executive council of A. W.

Coveted awards are not limited to the Seniors . . . freshmen too can wear honorary keys, and one of the most outstanding of these is the Phi Eta Sigma key. Only the sharpest of the sharp can sport one, for before a man is initiated into Phi Eta Sigma, he must make a five point average the first quarter of his freshman year or a cumulative five point for the first three quarters. Phi Eta Sigma is a national honorary for freshmen; it was founded in 1923 at the University of Illinois. Its purpose is to encourage scholarship among freshmen. The Arkansas chapter was founded in 1931 by the late Dean Ripley, making the twenty-fourth chapter in the United States. Dean Allan S. Humphries is now the sponsor of this organ¬ ization. Phi Eta Sigma has two annual parties. The first is held in the fall, and those men making the highest grades on the psychological entrance exams are invited. Requirements for initiation into Phi Eta Sigma are explained to them, and the values of scholarship in general are stressed. The second party is held later in the year to honor the new initiates. It is an informal affair at the home of Dean Humphries and the new members are required to make short impromptu speeches on subjects of their own choosing. In order to help freshmen get off to a good start, a booklet entitled Hints on How to Study is published by the national organization. This booklet is distribute d to the various chapters, and last year over thirty thousand copies were given out. OFFICERS Willie Joseph Lee Arthur Bonds .... Roland Waters .... Melvin C. Tucker .

Baby organization on the campus, Phi U has successfully completed its first year at Arkansas. It is both an honorary and a professional organization for outstanding Home Economics girls. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship and Agri activities. In 1929 the local honorary Omicron Delta was established, but since 1940 the girls have been petitioning for a Phi U charter. It was granted last April, and 20 were initiated into the new Alpha Delta chapter. To the christening came national officers and president of the LSU chapter. Arkansas girls put on their best bibs and tuckers in honor of the visit¬ ing firemen, gave a banquet and a tea in their honor. In September only five of those initiated in April were still on the campus, but with a strong national behind them to give inspiration and guidance, the girls started out undis¬ mayed. First on the calendar was the annual tea given with the Home Ec club to introduce freshmen and new students to the intricacies of the Home Ec Dept. In November Phi U girls initiated nine new members and promptly voted them into offices to fill all the vacancies. Outstanding feature of Phi U is the professional work project. This year the chapter decided to get the alumnae files in order and up to date and to edit a news letter to be sent to all the recent graduates of the department. Founders Day was celebrated with a dinner at the home of sponsor Mrs. Warren Gifford. OFFICERS Caroline Roberts. President Carolyn Jones . Vice-President Frances Harrison ....

It goes without saying that a wearer of a Pi Mu Epsilon key has yet to he found be¬ wildered by those change slips the Union is featuring this year, for they are the wonder- boys who make Bs in Algebra, Trig, and Calculus. This honorary Math fraternity re¬ quires for its members a 4 point in all Math courses and a 3 point in other courses. In addition the candidate for membership must have completed Integral Calculus. B. W. (before the war) it was customary to have talks given at the meetings by ad¬ vanced math students on some interesting people or interesting phases of mathematics. But since the war started, said students have gone to greener fields to give the Axis a taste of the more fascinating side of American Mathematics. Big social shindig of Pi Mu Epsilon this year was a Bridge party last fall, held in the blue room of the student union. Prizes and refreshments abounded. Prexy Sonny Keller, math genius par excellence, forever disgraced the organization by winning the booby prize. Jack Hine and date Mary Helm each won a traveling prize, and Pete Bragg won the door prize. The local chapter was organized in May, 1931. Meetings are held in the Engin building about twice a quarter. Initiations are held about twice a year. Sponsor is Dr. V. W. Adkisson. Also before the war a prize on honors day was awarded the student writing the best theme on mathematics. OFFICERS Walter Keller Dan Whelchel Roger Harris . Carl Gamel . . President Vice-President .

On the second Sunday in every month, members of Psi Chi, national honorary psy¬ chology organization, meet to have debates and hear papers on the newest happenings in their field. Purpose of the group is to advance the science of psychology, and to encourage, stimulate and maintain scholarship of the individual members in all academic fields, partic¬ ularly in psychology. To be elected to membership, a student must be in the upper half of his class in all subjects, and in the upper third in all psychology courses. In addition he must have completed or be registered for at least twelve hours in psychology. Grade point average of the group is usually between a three and a four point. The local group was organized in 1929 and was one of the nineteen charter members. Pleasantest tradition of the organization is that each meeting be also a Sunday night dinner party. I he meetings are usually held at the home of Dr. Waters, members taking- turns preparing the food. Papers given this year include one on Retro-Active Inhibitions by Mary Lewis, Extra- Sensory Perception by John Taylor, and Scientific Method by Albert Vitale. New initiates were required to give short papers at the initiation banquet. These were: The Effect of Carrots on Near-Sightedness by Virginia Pasley, and a Survey of the Attitudes of High School Students on the War by Fred Reinmiller, Loretta Amley, and Arlene Miller. New members initiated this spring are: Loretta Amley, Virginia Pasley, Barbara Hunt, Arlene Miller, and Fred Reinmiller. Dr. Waters is the faculty sponsor of the group. OFFICERS Mary Lewis.

Members of Sigma Alpha lota, national honorary music sorority, were fortunate in having as their sponsor this year Mrs. Esther Garlinghouse, internationally known pianist. The one big musical of the year was held at the Kappa house in January for SAl members, music faculty, and special guests. At this musical, Betty Farmer sang, and a string quartet played compositions by John Glasier, music professor. Smaller musicals were held monthly for members and the music faculty. At these, members entertained with piano and vocal selections. Miss Annelle Chandler, Zeta province president from Tulsa, visited the local chapter on March 15. She was honored with a dinner at the Washington hotel. To become a member of Sigma Alpha Iota, a girl must show exceptional music ability, be a major or minor in music, and have a high scholastic rating. To prove the last qualifi¬ cation, the grade average of the organization this year is a four point. The purpose of the organization is to strengthen the bond between music lovers, and to promote an understanding and a love of music. Pianist Betty Farmer served as accompanist for mixed chorus and did general enter¬ taining at the Tri-Delt house and at several gatherings in the Union with her interpretations of “Pistol Packin’ Mama” in the styles of Bach and Mozart. Doubtless, these worthy musicians would have risen from their respective graves had they heard Betty’s “solid” interpretations. Sigma Omicron chapter is a member of the campus Honor’s council.

An intensive program of training for future sophomore counselors in order to bring about a more effective system of orientation for freshman women has been outlined by this year’s Sophomore Council. Sophomore Council, an honorary organization, is composed of 20 girls, elected to membership at the end of their freshman year on the basis of leadership, scholarship, and activities. It is the duty of these girls, as counselors for the next year, to help freshman girls on the campus become better acquainted with each other, and with University life as a whole. Each girl on the Council is assigned as adviser to a specified group of freshman women. She contacts the girls personally, arranges individual “coke” dates or parties within her group at which she may talk over with the girls any problems that they may have, or she may help them in any aspect of their campus life. She is in charge of this group for the whole year, and, at the close of her term, turns in to the chairman of the Council a written report of her work. An annual affair of the Sophomore Council is a party, given at the beginning of each year, in co-operation with Mortar Board, for all freshman women and transfers. The party is given for the specific purpose of helping new students know each other and become acquainted with the older girls as well. Sophomore Council is known as the “little sister” organization of Mortar Board, which, by the way, chooses the counselors. Eula Nell Edwards, Chi Omega from Fayetteville, has served as chairman of the Council this year. OFFICERS Eula Nell Edwards . Christine Graham Jane Rowland ....

Membership in this organi¬ zation is based not only on scholarship, but on leadership, character, personality, and par¬ ticipation in campus activities. To be asked to join, the prospective member must be a male student enrolled in a regular engineering course; he must have attended the university for at least one year; and he must be either a senior in the upper fifth of his class or a junior in the upper tenth of his class. An engineer must continue to work hard to make Tau Beta Pi even after satisfying the scholarship requirements. He must pass an all-night examination covering every sub¬ ject while in college, write a 500 word theme on a non-technical subject, and make an intricate bent or key of walnut with the Greek letters of Tau Beta Pi inlaid in white maple. Each year Tau Beta Pi awards a slide rule to the honor freshman engineering student and a handbook to the runner-up. The war has caused Tau Beta Pi’s membership to drop slightly, but with the help of the faculty members it has managed to stay active. President Charles Oxford also heads Alpha Chi Sigma, and Omicron Delta Kappa, and is listed in Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. He was selected the outstanding senior in Chemical Engineering and was awarded a year’s membership in the American Chemical Society. OFFICERS Charles Oxford .... Tom Wheat. Wallace Leth ....

Assistant Manager Francille Killion.. . Secretary Mary Emma Linn. Treasurer Ruth Marie Matthews .... Publicity Manager “ADA” looks like a New Deal bureau, but it really stands for Agri Day Association, organization of the College of Agriculture which plans all social activities of the College in general and Agri Day in particular. Fees are paid as a part of registration, and all stu¬ dents of the College are entitled to participate in the Association. First shindig put on by the Agris was the “farmer’s formal”, the traditional gingham dress and overall dance held each fall. Usually a closed dance, this year because there are fewer boys in this college than in any other, the dance w T as open to all Agris and their dates. Biggest activity of the association and the one to which all others point is planning Agri Day, blowout of the College of Agriculture. Each year the future farmers and home¬ makers declare a holiday and paint big white feet on the town sidewalks, following the custom of the “Big Boy” whose footprints are found leading from all parts of town to the Agri building to see what the other “farmers” are doing. The first Agri Day appeared on the Arkansas campus on the Wednesday preceding Thanksgiving Day in 1915, and was heralded as the “Harvest Festival”. Since then it has become an occasion for the Homecoming of all Agri alumni. In 1920 the name was changed to Agri Day and the date set as the last Friday in April. This year, because most of the seniors graduated with the March class, the date was moved up to February 25th. Past Agri Days have been elaborate affairs with a parade sometimes composed of as many as 45 Boats, a livestock show held at the University Experiment Station Farm, exhib¬ its from each of the departments of the College, a rodeo or a picnic at the farm, and a luncheon prepared and served by the Home Ec girls, all topped by a dance. This year due to the war the program was simpler; students gathered in the game room of the Union for their convocation in the morning, went to a free moving picture show in the afternoon, and danced in the game room that night. AGRI DAY ASSOCIATION Page 168 Evans, Gallegly, Killion, Linn, Matthews At the convocation Mr. Aubrey Gates, associate director of the Arkansas Extension Service, spoke to the Agris, and Queen Janive Segraves was crowned by Dean Horlacher. Keys were presented to ADA manager Manon Gallegly; Janive Segraves, editor of the Agriculturist ; and Helen Louise King, business manager of the Agriculturist . Queen of Agri Day is one of the greatest honors that can come to a senior Home Ec girl, and, since it is one of the few queens not drawn out of a hat or controlled by campus politics, really represents the most popular girl in the College of Agriculture. Queen for 1944 was Janive Segraves, who has been president and vice-president of the Girls ' 4-11 House and was editor of the 1944 Agriculturist . She is a member of the Home Ec Club, Wesley Foundation, Wesley players, YWCA, and was a member of the Arkansas Traveler staff last summer. Agri Day was established on the campus for the purpose of cooperating with those in the field toward promoting a better agriculture in the state; of advertising the College of Agriculture and all it stands for; and of uniting more completely the students in the College. Probably it has done more than any other one factor to build the fine school spirit found in the College of Agriculture. The Agri-Engineer feud is of long standing, and it ' s all good clean fun. But it still galls the Agris to recall the year that their livestock show was almost spoiled when the slide rule boys painted the carefully tended cattle a beautiful Irish green. Memories of long Engineers with short haircuts do something to relieve their ire. Eagerly awaited announcement is that of Who’s Who in the College of Agriculture, the news traditionally breaking on Agri Day. It has been customary to have four boys and four girls as members, but the ADA constitution states that it shall be composed of outstanding senior students and since there were no senior boys, four girls were elected by the committee. These were Marjorie Evans, Homecoming Queen, Rootin’ Rubes presi¬ dent, two year vice-president of the University 4-1 1, assistant ADA manager, and assistant editor of the Agriculturist ; Carolyn Jones, vice-president of Mortar Board, president of YWCA, and Junior Danforth Award winner; Martha Lou Foreman, president of the Home Ec Club, freshman Danforth Scholar for 1942, librarian of Phi Upsilon Omicron, house manager of the Girls’ 4-H house, and editor-elect of the Agriculturist ; and Caroline Roberts, freshman Danforth Scholar in 1941, president of Phi Upsilon Omicron, and editor of the Razorback.

Installed on the U. of A. campus in 1935, the student branch of A. I. Ch. E. has grown greatly in the past few years. A professional organization for the promotion of chemical engineering, A. I. Ch. E. is one of the most exclusive national professional societies. Student membership is not restricted as much as membership to the parent society, since any student in chemical engineering may become a member. Regular meetings are held twice a month, and a social get together is planned occasionally. Senior Ch. E.’s are the only ones who give seminar talks, and these are supplemented by films and general discussions of technical nature. At the smokers, talks and original skits provide the entertainment, and cigars, cigarettes and apples the refreshments. The boys enjoy themselves at these smokers, but the janitors always complain about the apple cores strewn around the room. At the first of each year, Dr. Harrison Hale, head of the chemistry department, and a member of the parent society, entertains the student members with a smoker at his home. This is always a gala occasion for students and faculty alike. As a reward for four years of successful study, Dr. 1 I a 1 e also gives a banquet for the graduating student members. Mrs. Hale’s food is always the best, and this year’s seniors are still wondering where the ration points for the steaks came from. Mr. O. S. Jenkins and Dr. Hale served as faculty advisors for the past year. OFFICERS Cliff Koger. Hen White. Charles Oxford .... Carl Gamel.

The student branch of A IKE was organized to help bring students of electrical engi¬ neering closer together socially and in their school work. The meetings of this organiza¬ tion, which are held bi-monthly, provide a means of acquainting the student with some of the problems and methods of industry that will be encountered after graduation. Chapter meetings are held in A. C. laboratory, and during the year, several motion pictures of electrical engineering interest have been shown; seminar talks on timely engi¬ neering subjects are given by all of the seniors; and round-table discussions of various cur¬ rent topics have been held. Due to transportation difficulties, the local chapter did not send representatives to the annual A. I. E. E. convention which was held this year at Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Arkansas chapter is in the Southwest District which is composed of Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, and New Mexico. To keep the EE’s from getting too dull, several social activities were carried out during the year. Most notable of these was a hay ride and picnic to Lake Weddington during the summer quarter. Several smokers were also held during the year, at which time the seminar talks were presented. Refreshments were served at these smokers, and cigars, cigarettes, and Logan’s pipe provided the smoke. Prof. W. B. Stelzner is the faculty sponsor of the chapter, and the rest of the EE professors act in advisory capacities. OFFICERS Bill Thomas. President Dee Patterson. Secretary Joe Weisiger.

Although the war has called many of its men to active duty, Alpha Chi Sigma has still been able to carry on its social functions with an excellent membership. This year the chem¬ ists held their traditional lab banquet and cooked their own food over bunsen burners. The founders would have turned over in their graves had they known that the tradi¬ tional Founders’ Day banquet had been moved up to February 19th from April. The members felt that they were justified, however, in changing the date for most of the senior members graduated in March instead of the usual June. Bi-monthly smokers usually are held at which Dr. and Mrs. Flale are host and hostess; quantities of apples are consumed; chemical games are played; and bull sessions continue far into the night. Alpha Chi Sigma makes an award each year of a membership in the American Chem¬ ical Society to its outstanding senior in chemical engineering. Charles Oxford was the 1944 winner. The chemistry manual for the outstanding freshman this year was given to Mac Howington. Dr. L. F. Porter, Dean A. S. Humphries, and Dr. Edgar Wertheim, founders of this chapter. Alpha Sigma, changed the local membership in Gamma Chi to national standing in Alpha Chi Sigma. This national was founded in 1902 at the University of Wisconsin. Alpha Chi Sigma is a national professional chemistry fraternity; it now has 52 col¬ legiate chapters and is the strongest chemical body of its kind. Besides the collegiate chapters, professional groups have arisen in the majority of the larger cities in the country and have become an integral part of the fraternity, comprising about 90 per cent of its members. Alpha Chi Sigma strives for the advancement of chemistry as a science and a profes¬ sion, and for the assistance of its members in the attainment of their ambition as chemists.

In the meet¬ ings, construction films were shown, and student seminar talks were given. Even though they had the smallest class in Engine school, ASCE was very active during the past year. East spring, the CE’s held their annual chapter banquet. At this time, Mr. N. B. Garver, head of the design section of the Arkansas Highway Department, gave the principal address. Several very successful smokers were also held during the year. Unlike the other professional societies on the campus, programs in ASCE deal with other things besides strictly engineering subjects, talks on current events being given at the first of the year. Later the regular seminar talks were presented by the junior and senior members. Membership requirements for ASCE are that the men shall be juniors or seniors in civil engineering, although sophomore civils are allowed to attend meetings. This year, the senior members, all four of them, elected themselves as a sort of Board of Control of ASCE, their principal action being to agree to wear ties to all classes. They spent many an enjoyable hour in the fountain of the Student Union hiding from Prof. Ray, their instructor in steel design. Prof. W. R. Spencer, head of the CE department, and one of the outstanding civil engineers in the state, served as faculty sponsor. Other CE instructors acted iiran advisory capacity to the group.

The student branch of ASME has been set up in practically all of the engineering colleges and universities of the nation by the parent organization in order to help prospec¬ tive mechanical engineers become acquainted with industrial problems and procedures. Like the parent society, the student branch provides a means of becoming acquainted with fellow engineers, also sponsoring certain social functions and recreation for its members. Membership in the student branch provides students with a means of meeting practicing engineers, and the right to inspect industrial plants. After graduation, student members are allowed to transfer their student membership to junior membership in the parent society. Meetings of the local chapter are held bi-monthly in the Engineering building, with an occasional smoker in the Blue Room of the Union. At the meetings, seminar talks are presented by the members. Several industrial films have also been shown during the year to better acquaint the members with industrial procedure. Although the regular meetings are usually interesting, the MB’s enjoy the social activ¬ ities more. Highlighting the social activities of the Society was the annual student-faculty picnic at Lake Weddington last spring when the ME’s wiped off all the grease from labs, forgot their slide-rules, and had a fine time. The annual award to the student who had done the most for the promotion of the student chapter during the year was awarded to Bob Duncan, who served as president of the chapter. Mr. F. J. Daasch, a member of ASME, served as faculty advisor.

The Baptist Student Union was organized on the University of Arkansas campus for the purpose of directing the religious activities of the Baptist students. The organization strives to reach all the Baptist students and to link them with the local church, in the hope of providing for them some sort of religious activity and some social activity. The Baptist Student Union Council is at the head of the work and it is the part of the organization which is actually on the campus. The officers of the council are elected by the members of the Union. At the beginning of each quarter, the members of BSU hold a reception for the new students on the campus, and these receptions have also included each new Air Corps squad¬ ron as soon as it was released. Vesper services are held by the BSU in the Blue Room of the Student Union every week, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights from seven o’clock until seven thirty. Recently the Union began the publication of a paper, The Ambassador y which will be issued every two weeks. Copies of this publication will be distributed to all Baptist students at the meetings of the Union on Sunday mornings. Miss Mary Jane Redwine, new student secretary of the organization, came to Fayette¬ ville in February, in the employ of the church here and the Baptist denomination to work with the students on the campus.

Boots and Spur, organized in 1938 on this campus to create interest and to increase skill in horseback riding, meets every other Wednesday in the Blue Room of the Student Union. Mrs. Joy Pratt Markham, sponsor of the group, has led the club in a year of varied and interesting activities beginning with the annual spaghetti supper at her home for this year’s newly initiated members and members of the Air Corps and Engineers who are interested in riding. This was followed by several sunrise breakfasts, early morning rides, and the gala Barn Dance later in the spring. Besides a genuine interest in horsemanship, requirements for membership in Boots and Spur consist of attaining a certain degree of excellence in riding as determined by Mrs. Markham, and also a majority vote of the members. Membership in Boots and Spur is limited strictly to the feminine gender, but it is a sister organization to Saddle and Bridle, the boys’ group. Man shortage forced the dis¬ bandment of Saddle and Bridle, but Boots and Spur has been working hard for its re¬ establishment. A new project begun this year by Mrs. Markham, assisted by Boots and Spur, was the establishment of the Engineers and Cadet Club. This is composed of a group of the army ASTP men and Air Corps students who are interested in horseback riding and w T ho by membership in the club are entitled to ride, swim, or dance at Mrs. Markham’s home during the week-end where the entertainment is furnished by members of Boots and Spur.

Since 1942 the Univer¬ sity Women’s Class has met with the men’s though still maintaining its own organization. Emphasis has long been placed on regular attendance. To be a five point man is the goal of every member—such rating being attained through attendance for five consecutive Sundays. Attendance for the fall term averaged 93. The percentage of university men in at¬ tendance is probably the highest, although for the four preceding years the average has been over one hundred.

A small but hard-working group of cheerleaders tried to urge a little pep out of a lethargic student body at all the home football games this year. Chief worry of said group was Uncle Sam who found a better use for Jim Baker early in the football season. And to make things worse, the army boys in the bleachers had their own ideas about yelling, as all the Texas GI ' s cheered for the wrong team, much to the annoyance of the Arkansas gang. Due to transportation shortage—and we’ve heard that ditty previously—cheerleaders attended only one out-of-town game in full force this year. But at Little Rock, all were there, calling the Hogs lustily. In spite of cheerleaders praising Allah fervently and jumping around wildly, the teams didn’t do as well as the cheering squad. They did win a conference game, the first in three seasons, but the cheerleaders weren’t there to celebrate. Led by peppy Jean Pitcock, the squad tore its hair and gnashed its teeth trying to work up a little enthusiasm with a student body that doesn’t seem to care whether the team wins or not. Rosemary Weis helped boost morale by turning handsprings, and Jackie Pierce did his bit by being generally noisy. Greatest worry at this point is for next year, when the cheerleaders fear they will be an entirely feminine group. But if such a tragedy occurs, the remaining members are pre¬ pared to just keep on yelling.

Seven years ago the faculty and students of the College of Business Administration decided that an organization was needed to express and provide for the needs of the Col¬ lege; out of this decision arose the Commerce Guild, a group interested solely in promoting the College of Business Administration . . . bringing speakers to the campus, giving publicity to the College, and uniting more firmly the faculty and students. Membership in the group is voluntary, and all Commerce students are eligible. In 1942 the first Commerce Day was held, and since then, planning the activities of this day has come to be one of the major responsibilities of the Guild. A queen is elected, member¬ ship in the Guild being the only qualification for voting. To promote greater interest in Comm erce Day, membership has been opened to all students in the University, thus allow¬ ing them a chance to vote for the queen. Festivities began in the morning with a convocation at which Mr. William Shepherd, acting chairman of the Arkansas Economic Council, spoke to Business students, and at noon a luncheon was held for the guest speaker, officers of the Guild and the Guild Ticker staff. Copies of the Guild Ticker , official publication of the College, were distributed. Instead of the usual dance, Commerce students were treated to a free picture show that night. After the show they adjourned to the Union for refreshments, dancing, and the crowning of Queen Jenny V. Sharp. The Commerce Guild is an organization of students managed by the students. Taking an active part in the administration of its affairs provides opportunity for the development of executive capacity and experience in directing and handling pe ople. The Guild is gov¬ erned by an executive council composed of four members from each class and the four Guild officers.

Coterie, an organization for outstanding unaffiliated girls, was founded on the Uni¬ versity of Arkansas campus five years ago this fall. Membership was intended originally for only town girls, but the organization gradually grew to include all unaffiliated girls, being limited, however, to 30 members. A purely social group, the Coterie girls sponsor parties of all kinds at various intervals during the school year, often with their “dates” as guests. This year they have given a “come as you are” party, a weiner roast, and a chili supper, in addition to their annual affairs which include a Valentine dance, a Christmas party, and a banquet commemorating their founding. Coterie holds regular rush parties during the year, and girls receiving invitations to join are pledges to the organization for a four-week period. During this term, the pledges are asked to write a Coterie song and are given other assigned duties. There are now 15 members of Coterie and 10 pledges. Mr. and Mrs. Julien R. Tatum are sponsors of the organization this year. The annual Coterie Christmas party, held at the Tatum home, was one of the group’s outstand¬ ing activities. Gifts were exchanged and then given to the University Women’s Club to be turned over to soldiers and needy children. Regular meetings of Coterie are held once a week, on Monday afternoons at 5 p. m. in the Student Union. Helen Louise King, Agri Junior from Fayetteville, is president of the organization. She served as business manager for the Agriculturist and is chaplain of Phi Upsilon Omicron. OFFICERS Helen Louise King Virginia Edwards Betty Brown. Sarah Aldridge ....

Mr. and Mrs. Van Howell have been the very popular teachers of the University class for the last eleven years, alternating each Sunday. The devotional programs are carried on by the class. The class carries on Christian Service projects in the church, at the Veteran ’s Hospi¬ tal, and at the outpost at Harris. The students also conduct a Fellowship Group which meets for supper and discussion on topics of their own choosing every Sunday night. This group has its own officers and council. Attendance here is stressed too, and individual certificates are given at the end of each school year for Perfect and Excellent attendance. The class and fellowship objectives are: To sponsor and assist in carrying on Chris¬ tian activities on the campus; to foster the spirit of Christian fellowship among University students; to offer a cordial church home especially to all Southern Presbyterian students, and to train them for future Christian leadership; and to use the teaching of the Bible as the basis for everyday living.

The principal duty of the Council is the planning and executing of Engineers ' Day. The fifteen-man Council is com¬ posed of: two representatives from each engineering department, the editor-in-chief and business manager of The Engineer f the Engineering representative to the Student Senate, and four members from the College at large. The first activity of the Council was the planning of the annual fall dance, which was given the last part of October. This dance was the first of the fall quarter to have no¬ breaks, these being the Diesel Dig, the Test Tube Toddle, the Transit Trot, and the High- Tension Hop, in honor of the four departments of Engineering. Elerb Hannah and his orchestra furnished the music for this dance. The Council also purchased several magazines this year to be put on the shelves of the Engineering library. Most of these magazines were technical in nature, but Esquire was added to the list to keep the boys from getting too dull. It has been the custom of the Council in years past to keep up certain magazine subscriptions and to add to these as often as possible. With only 12 Agris this year, the Engine boys had no resistance on Engineer’s Day, and carried out the festivities in fine style. Due to the fact that the seniors, in whose honor Engineers’ Day is held, were graduating March 8, Engineers’ Day was held January 28 instead of on St. Patrick’s Day as is the custom. Festivities began on January 27 with a banquet at the Washington Hotel where mem¬ bers of The Engineer staff received keys for their work. At this banquet, the usual quips were read about the Engine faculty members. Tom Logan acted as master of ceremonies. ENGINEERING EDUNCIL Page 182 First row: Allman, Aus¬ tin, Brown, Holmes, Howington, K o g e r, Leth. Second row: Logan, Mil¬ ler, Patterson, Price, Rankin, Smith, White. After the banquet, the Engineers and dates attended “Facts and Fatalities”, a quiz show deluxe at which Herb Allman was master of ceremonies. Outside of the fact that “zombies” Bob Price and “Doc” Ware ran the master of ceremonies across the stage sev¬ eral times and Atlas Lilly’s “baby” got shot, there were no serious accidents at the show. Other events at this time included the announcement of the Engineering royalty and the settlement of the beard question. Jimmie Brown, ASME, was announced to be St. Patrick, and Jane Nichols, Tri Delt, was acclaimed the Engineers’ dream girl, St. Patricia. The four candidates for St. Patricia judged Ed Lilly as having the longest and thickest beard, and a kiss from the queen as his well-earned reward. Marvis “Gundar” Sanders, who was a close runner-up in the contest, almost lost an ear when date Nancy Hill tried to shave him with a straight razor while blindfolded. After the quiz show, the Engineers painted the campus and town green with sham¬ rocks, raised their shamrock banners above most of the buildings on the campus, and sang below sorority windows. The only trouble came when Ed, the night watchman, accused some of the boys of trying to make Old Main fall down by walking around it seven times. However they convinced him they were only trying to hang a shamrock on the building. On Friday, official Engineers’ Day, the men emerged from behind their beards, ate break¬ fast together in the Union, and received the special edition of The Engineer. St. Pat Brown and Queen Nichols led the procession of graduating seniors to convocation in Main Auditorium at ten o’clock. Following the traditional rites of the Engineers, each gradu¬ ating senior was knighted by St. Patrick and kissed the Blarney stone. Prof. J. M. Conrad of the Civil Engineering Department of Kansas State University spoke to the Engineers at the convocation. Most of the Engineers slept Friday afternoon, since it was impossible to obtain the usual picture show at the Uark. The annual Engineers Ball ended the celebration Friday night. Saints Patrick and Patricia reigned during the ball, and led the Knights of St. Pat¬ rick and dates in the grand march. ENGINEERING COUNCIL Page 183 “Music in the Hanna manna” provided by Herb Hanna’s group of musicians fur¬ nished the university students with music every Saturday night, until the boys split up when the Army called. The orchestra played for all the student dances and also for all the sorority and fraternity functions. The boys rehearsed usually every Wednesday night for three hours or more. The majority of the arrangements were stock, but Bitsy Mullins, whose trumpet is known to everyone on the campus, worked up a few of them himself. Eva Jo Denny, vocalist, also doubled on the piano when her brother left for the Navy. When they returned to the uni¬ versity for a visit, former members of the band “sat-in” with the other boys at the dances. Aside from rehearsals and dates, the boys managed to get together occasionally for a jam session. In fact, the Uark apartments, where most of them live, fairly rang with music when the fellows had a little time on their hands. The orchestra, which operates on a cooperative basis, made several trips to Ft. Smith to play for dances there. The orchestra lost many members during the course of the year, and finally broke up entirely when Herb himself received the familiar “Greetings”. Herb insists that the majority of the pieces played were slow and sweet, but the jitter¬ bugs on the campus had ample opportunity to “go to town”. MEMBERS Saxophones Herbert Hanna.

This group is called the Newman Club, named after Cardinal Newman, famous Catholic theologian. The club is national and was founded late in the last century at the University of Pennsylvania, the Arkansas chapter being established in 1937. Th e usual social activities of the group, Sunday night banquets and an annual break¬ fast, were not held this year, but many interesting discussions were held. At one meeting the problem of evolution was debated, and different theories on the subject were presented. At another time the members discussed the 16th century problem of indulgences, with ref¬ erence to Martin Luther and his break with the church. The Newman Club was organized in order “to deepen the spiritual and enrich the temporal lives of its members through a balanced program of religious, intellectual, and social activities.” In carrying out this purpose, the Newman Club fills a vacancy in the university program for it is to the biweekly club meetings that perplexed Catholic students carry their problems of social customs versus church decrees.

Drawn together by common interests . . . learning to sew a straight seam, drawing blue prints for that dream house, learning the gentle art of dishwashing, or how to get the most for your sixteen points a week . . . the members of the Home Economics Club meet every second Wednesday in the Home Ec Building Living Room with Miss Cannon as sponsor. All girls enrolled in Home Economics courses are eligible to join and the club includes over fifty girls who are interested in promoting fellowship among the Home Eco¬ nomics girls, between students and faculty, and cooperation with the other campus organi¬ zations. Miss Cannon, sponsor of the club, has met with the girls at their monthly meet¬ ings and has had some valuable pointers for Prexy Foreman and her cabinet. A joint meeting of the Home Ec Club with Phi Upsilon Omicron was the first event on the calendar of this year’s activities. As an inspiration for the members, Sarah Curtis Aldridge, who received the Freshman Danforth Scholarship, and Carolyn Jones, winner of the Junior Danforth Scholarship, gave reports of their trips to Camp Miniwanca the pre¬ ceding summer. These two scholarships are awarded the most outstanding Freshman and Junior girl in the College of Agriculture each year. The schedule for the year included a varied and interesting group of programs con¬ sisting of discussions of Post War planning, travel talks, book reviews and discussions of other topics of direct interest to Home Ec students. Miss Cannon aroused the club’s inter¬ est in seldom-heard-of Guatemala by her unusual collection of that country’s native cos¬ tumes, customs, jewelry, and accounts of her visit there. Mrs. O. T. Osgood brought the club up to date on what’s new in the post war plan¬ ning world, and as a special feature of the February meeting, to which all girls on the campus were invited, Miss Jobelle Holcombe reviewed “Jane Eyre”. A rare treat for those attending the March meeting was Betty Lou Duncan’s rendition of several groups of popular and semi-classical favorites on her harp. Foods Chairman Sally Lou Sawyer was on hand for all these occasions cheerfully passing cookies and pouring tea. HOME EC CLUB Page 186 First row: Johnston, Jones, I. E. Jordan, M.

In keeping- with the yearly tradition, the Home Ec Club entertained with a Christmas Tea in the living room of the Home Economics Building honoring all faculty wives, faculty women and club mothers. The highlight of the spring season was the annual Installation Bauquet at which the new officers were installed. A style show presented by the proud creators of their recently finished garments fresh from the clothing lab was the highlight of the evening’s entertainment. In the Betty Lamp, the Home Ec Club’s own two pages of the Agriculturist, devoted to activities and interests of the clu b, you may follow the true to life accounts of the trials and tribulations of the Home Management House family, what goes on in those neat white Home Ec labs, glimpses into the various phases of life in Home Ec school, and general news in the field of home economics.

Largest organization on the campus, Mixed Chorus warbled its way through another highly successful year. Directed by popular “Pop” Shultz, the chorus met every Tuesday night in the ball¬ room of the Union to chirp and make noises for an hour. Qualifications for Mixed Chorus are practically nil. Anyone with twelve hours of passing grades who can so much as get out a croak is signed up by secretary Nancy Hill and classed by “Pop M as soprano, alto, tenor, or bass. The annual Christmas concert was given this year with the added strength of army boys. The GPs also helped out unofficially by cheering the girls from the balcony every Tuesday night. Betty Farmer, the girl who can do wonderful things with a piano, is the Mixed Chorus accompanist this year. Onlookers sometimes wonder why there are so many people at the University with such a great interest in singing until they discover that members receive an hour’s credit for the weekly workout. What the onlookers don ' t realize is that this credit is well-earned by hard-working chorusers. Due to the army, navy, marines, air corps, and various and sundry other branches of the service, boys were forced to drop out at intervals throughout the year. This shortage of male voices did not deter the Mixed Chorus, however, which practiced long and faith¬ fully.

Every Monday afternoon and Thursday night the terpsichorean artists of the campus don their leotards and gather at the Women’s Gym to limber up their muscles and to im¬ prove their figures. After a few minutes of exercising and getting in the mood, the girls settle down to business. Music is played by an accompanist, and the girls express their ideas about the various pieces by m ovement. This modern dance organization is comparatively new, having been organized in 1938, but it is not a national organization. Orchesis has a twofold purpose: to further interest in the dance, and to give students an opportunity to participate in group work in the dance. Girls majoring in Physical Education, or those intending to have a career on the stage, receive valuable instructions in this group. Members are chosen after tryouts held in the fall, but they must have had previous work in modern dance, or at least dance experience. Each year Orchesis sponsors a spring dance program, and early this spring, a modern dance trio, composed of William Bayles, Jane Dudley, and Sophie Maslow, nationally known dancers, visited the university and presented a program of interpretative dances. The trio gave instructions to the modern dance class, and also gave Orchesis a few pointers on interpretation of the dance. Orchesis is sponsored by Miss Lesley Vinal, Assistant Professor of Physical Educa¬ tion for women. OFFICERS Mary Martha Cook. President Peggy Lou Kerr. Secretary-Treasurer Billie Hayward.

Habla Ud. espanol? Spanish students have made Pan Americana the star for which they reach and stretch. If you have a B average in Spanish, it’s time that you too started reaching. According to ye old ancient adage—“the third time’s the charm”—but we’d venture to say that the second time isn ' t half bad, judging by Pan Americana’s very successful second year of affiliation with the National Pan American League. Having as its purpose the advancement of cooperation between the United States and the Spanish speaking countries, Pan Americana has encouraged an understanding of the cultural relations of our country and our sister nations south of the border. Faculty members have been guest speakers on subjects of customs and national characteristics of the people of the Americas and the two men students from old Spain have added many interesting and significant details. Each year Pan Americana has a formal initiation ceremony for new members. The organization meets twice each month, on Thursday night at 7 :30 in the Blue Room of the Student Union. There are bred a small, but important part of the future national friend¬ ships which will lead to better understanding among the countries of the Americas. The programs are presented alternately in Spanish and in English. The members themselves have contributed much to these programs through their own personal knowledge of Spanish customs.

After losing members steadily all year, the Pre-med club nevertheless wound up the year successfully. Movies on medical subjects were shown at most of the meetings of the organization. These movies ranged in content from one on the digestive tract to another about circula¬ tion. In between were included, among other things, endocrinology, reproduction, and the skeletal system. At one meeting, Dr. Frank Gordon of the Veterans hospital gave a talk on the new sulfa drugs and penicillin. Club membership was quite unstable as members went to work for Uncle Sam or to med school. Warren Murray, who started the year as president, went to the army. His job was taken over by Nancy Hill. This club is open to all pre-med students. Its purpose is to help pre-meds and to encourage and further medical discoveries and study. Members meet in the auditorium of the chemistry building every Wednesday night to discuss new phases or problems of medicine. Dr. Carl Hoffman sponsors the club, which includes faculty members of the chemistry and zoology departments as honorary members. President Nancy Hill keeps her Chio sisters guessing what she will be president of next. President of both the Pre-med club and of Alpha Epsilon Delta, honorary pre¬ medical fraternity, she holds office in almost every club what am.

Probe and Scope is a semi-honorary organization for biology majors, which has as its purpose the promotion of interest in biology among the students on the campus. Require¬ ments for membership specify that a student must he a major in biology, must have fifteen hours of credit in that subject, and that he or she must have at least a 4k B” average in bio¬ logical science. The regular meetings of the organization are held once each month. Club programs include guest speakers, talks given by the members themselves, and occasional field trips. Dr. Carl E. Hoffman is the sponsor for Probe and Scope. Probe and Scope was founded five years ago on the University of Arkansas campus by Dr. Hoffman, who is assistant professor of Zoology, Dr. Delbert Swartz, associate professor of Botany, and Dr. Samuel C. Dellinger, professor of Zoology, as a club for those who were interested in biological sciences. Probe and Scope is not national, but at present the organization is petitioning Phi Sigma, national honorary biological fraternity, for a charter. Social activities of the organization have been curtailed this year due to the war and to the lack of male members. President Weldon Larrimore is student assistant in the entomology department, and for the past several years he has spent his spare time in the University labs doing research on birds, snakes, and mammals.

Haven’t you enjoyed the games on the baseball diamond, the hockey field, the basket¬ ball and volley ball courts played in a spirit of friendly rivalry between the various organ¬ ized girls’ houses? Haven’t you enjoyed seeing a slightly be-draggled group of once glam¬ orous girls chasing a small ball over the field? The organization behind all this . . . the organization that arranges and sponsors these tournaments is W. A. A., Women’s Athletic Association. Only requirement for membership in the Association is the earning of one W. A. A. credit which is awarded for practice or participation in at least one of the tournament sports. W. A. A. has as its main objective the promotion of interest in campus sports and the encouragement of intramural activities among girls. On the social side, W. A. A. sponsors two play nights a year, one in the fall and one in the spring at which time members and their dates meet in the Gym for dancing, fun, games and an evening of entertainment. Opening the current season of intramural sports, softball held the interest for about three weeks until the Town team held first place with Delta Gamma second and Carnall Hall third. Following softball, hockey claimed the attention, interest and anxiety of all. Carnall Flail emerged with the title, with Pi Phi and Town ranking second and third. Basketball proved equally exciting with Carnall Hall capturing another first place followed by Kappa Kappa Gamma and 4-H. Rosemary Weis was proclaimed best of all on the badminton court in the individual tournament, and Mildred Earp was winner of the ping pong match with Muriel Ray a close second for the honors.

I hough formed for Methodist students originally, any student is welcome to at tend the church services and to participate in the activities of this organization which holds as its aim the promotion of fellowship and understanding among the Methodists. On Sunday mornings two different classes of Sunday school services are given, each designed to appeal to the varying interests of the students. One service is conducted on the Bible, the other service is along the lines of subjects of current interest, and students may attend the one which most appeals to them. Every Sunday afternoon at 5 :00 the group meets for an hour of games after which the ever popular “dine-a-mite” holds sway. Later, songs are sung and there is a worship program. Parties which the Wesley Foundation has sponsored during the year include a Kid party, Christmas party, Valentine party, and Hallowe’en party. Annually the members go on a weiner roast to Ghost Hollow. Miss Madge Franklin is the Wesley Foundation director and Brother Galloway supervises the activities of the organization.

The Kappa chapter of the National Society of Wesley Players, a religious dramatic society, is sponsored by the Methodist church for any University students who are inter¬ ested in religious drama. The plays which the Wesley players have presented during a very active year include four one-act plays: “The Other Wise Man” which was given as the Christmas play; “The Summons of Soriel” and “The Bond Between” which were given, with all girl casts, for an evening service at the Wesley Foundation; and the play presented as the Easter play, “The Alabaster Box”. The first group of pledges this year produced “The Lost Church”. The National Organization of Wesley Players was founded in 1924 by a group of Methodist students at the University of Illinois. The Kappa chapter was established on the Arkansas University campus in 1931. Before becoming a member of this organization, students must serve a period of pledgeship and be passed by a unanimous vote of the active members. Initiation of pledges is held twice each year. New members who have just been initiated are: James Foreman, Mary Ellen Hill, Virginia Cochran, Patsy Harrison, Viola Callahan, Mary Lou McConnel, Lewis Barefield, and Sue Speigle. Each year, on April 28, the organization holds a Founders’ Day Banquet. OFFICERS Manon Gallegly .... Kathryn Trussell Margaret Baumez Frances Tyler ....

The Young Men’s Christian Association is a world-wide organization to promote re¬ ligious. interest, friendship, and professional insight among its members. It has had a marked success, and has produced many leaders, both nation and state-wide. The Y. M. C. A. in Fayetteville was organized March 22, 1887, and one of the earlier presidents was Frank Shuler, for whom Shulertown is named. Within ten years the Y. M. C. A. was well-established on the Arkansas campus, and has continued through the years to promote its ideals and principles among the students. During the first World War there was a Student Army Training Corps for the sol¬ diers on this campus, and Mr. W. S. Gregson was sent to the University to act as the General Secretary of Y. M. C. A. and to assist the soldiers. Mr. Gregson liked the Uni¬ versity so well, that he is now serving his twenty-sixth year as General Secretary, and is again active in doing all he can to help the soldiers stationed on the campus today. He serves as chaplain, and during their quarantine period he holds services for the soldiers in the Student Union. Last year with over 150 members the Y. M. C. A. had one of its largest groups, but most of these men are now in the armed forces. The Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, which helps in planning all the programs, lost all but one of last year’s members, and due to reduced number of men on the campus the entire membership is smaller this year. OFFICERS John E.

A. started the year with a bang-up counter-attack aimed at the Axis. In collaboration with the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. furthered its war activities by spon¬ soring the annual Red Cross drive on the campus. Vesper services on Thursday nights in the Student Union building were held for soldiers stationed here and for students. Y. W. set out immediately to make all the frosh and transfer students feel at home on the AU campus by sponsoring the Freshmen orientation program in the Fall. Entertain¬ ment included an hilarious informal get-acquainted party in the Student Union where games, quizes, and dancing were the order of the day. The Y. W. C. A. holds regular meetings on the third Wednesday of each month in the game room of the Student Union. The programs have included conferences, discussions by students, and lectures by members of the faculty and ministers from various Fayetteville churches. In addition to being prexy of Y. W. C.A., Carolyn Jones also serves as vice-president of Mortar Board and Phi Upsilon Omicron, and as a member of the A. W. S. executive council. Beginning in England during the Industrial Revolution in the form of a boarding house for girls who worked in factories, the Y. W. C. A. spread to this country and in 1906 became known as the Y. W. C. A. of the United States. OFFICERS Carolyn Jones. President Marie Sullivent. Secretary Sara Aldridge. Treasurer CABINET MEMBERS Sara Aldridge Carolyn.

Over 80 per cent of the unprecedented electric power demand in war is produced by privately-owned, business-managed, tax-paying electric companies.

At first we thought that a 1944 RAZOR- BACK was an impossibility, due to priori¬ ties, lack of material, and higher prices, but we found that our engravers and printers took care of the priorities and material shortages for us and the adver¬ tisers helped us to cope with the high prices. To those of you who have been our loyal and faithful supporters for many years, again we say " thank you " , and to our new advertisers of this year, let us welcome you. We hope that we may find you listed in the RAZORBACK for many years to come. VIRGINIA ARNOLD, Business Manager Dougherty Wallpaper Co.
