It has been deemed advisable, with the return of control of the annual publication to the junior Class, to revert to the name t'The Key." And now may the pages which follow speak for themselves, and may they remind us, in the future, of the spirit of old Du- buque, that invincible spirit that will overcome all obstacles and strive on to the realization of its aim4 A GREATER DUBUQUE. ..- 07 '1"fJr'w1 "HH TO 'l'l IIC Xl ICM!

So it is with us. Our college years have witnessed our growth not only in stature, but also in mental breadth and spirit- ual vision. Some of our ideals have been attained, some have been put aside or lost, but most have been transformed into something higher and nobler. The worth of our ideals will be measured by the success of our efforts in the service of humanity. The class that entered the college in 1916 has passed through varied exper- iences, some common, some otherwise. VV e neither claim superiority nor admit inferiority to other entering classes. ' The Class of 1920, however, has shown its spirit from the start. On a cool spring morning of the Freshman year the paint and brush were skilfully used, and the noble symbol "l920" still stands on the main university walk. VVhen men were needed, many of the class served in the United States Army as offi- cers and enlisted men, to return later to take up their preparation for service in other capacities. The class has won the epithet of "Bolsheviki Classl' on ac- count of its inability to issue a year book, owing to the absence of many who were in the service. Our ideals are not necessarily any the worse for our name. and our creed is essentially the same as that of other Christian folk. We have had our fortunes and our misfortunes, as all must in this great game. We have lost one member of our class-a noble, pure, lovable boy, and his memory is all that can take his place. We have taken in other members from the outside and from lower classes, who proved themselves our equal. The Class of 1920 has designed and caused to be adopted a college ring which each outgoing student of the university will wear. In cooperation with the Class of '21, the Seniors have been instrumental in bringing about the first annual Fresh- man-Sophomore Rush. In athletics we have had some excellent representa- tives, and in scholarship some of the best men of the institution. All these college activities do not amount to a great deal, in themselves, but they do show that there exists a spirit of activity. The real worth will be known when this activity is applied to the life work for which each of us has so long prepared. We assure all, that whenwe are entered upon our calling and have served some ten, twenty, or more years, not one of us will be slow in recognizing an- other as a classmate. As we have acquired a knowledge of life, we now go out to impart this knowledge to others, and in whatever place, in whatever field, in whatever capacity we serve. we know that we are paying the greatest tribute to our Alma Mater by serving humanity. - Theodore G.

There it is, neither the highest nor the lowest, enjoying none of the privileges and immunities of those two blessed estates, and burdened with multifar- ious obligations not of its own begetting. Theirs is a hard lot indeed, between the upper and nether millstones of senior superiority, ffreshman folly and sophomore self-satisfaction. But, like thevwheat in a sim- ilar position--bruised, crushed, pulverized,-the victim takes consolation in the promise of the far-away future, when it may yet be of a little service in allaying the hunger of the world. VVe, of the Junior Class, have caught this gleam of ser- vice, and meantime make shift to be as optimistic as possi- ble, conliding in the assurance of' the poet- 1 "That even the weariest river Winds somewhere safe to sea." ' ' In discharging the aforesaid burdensome responsibil- ities, the class has undertaken several projects of magni- tude." The Fortune Hunter" was given at the Grand Opera House on April 9, and folks said they did well, well--the other major one is the issuing of the Year Book, to 'the furtherance of' which this spasm is dedicated. - Needless to say, each grain of wheat between the mill- stones is of Hnest quality, and promises a product of unique Havor and lasting satisfaction.

Of course we have had our faults, made our mistakes, done things we should be sorry -for, over-stepped limits, 'but our aim is to prolit by our errors. . The complexion of our personnel is not varied enough to warrant or excuse narration of our individ- ual accomplishments. It pleases us to think we are accomplished. It is enough to say that we are well represented in all phases of college life, intellectual, social, religious, and athletic.

I -U0fD eFre.shman Class History The Class of 1923 had its beginning last Septem- ber, being composed partly of the Academy class of 1919, partly of graduates 'from High Schools in var- ious parts of the country. The class is deficient nei- ther in number nor in capabilities. During the year it has maintained a scholarly and high ethicalstandard. As students, the Freshmen were able and constantg in the other activities of college life they were heartily concerned, apt, and well-represented. They were an integral part of all the four sports. They were a congenial group. Their hikes, steak- fries, and parties were entered into with an enthus- iasm characteristic of the class, were heartily enjoyed, and served to make it a more cordial unit. Thru all the troubles and vexations which Freshmen must en- dure, they calmly and resolutely held their own. However, this is not the height of their ambition. In their possibilities and in the purity of their hopes, they are perhaps the most promising class in the insti- tution. What less can be expected of a class, the consummation of whose ideals lies in its motto, "Fol- low the Gleam"? -By Jackson C. Smith.

Gloom hung in black clouds upon the brow of Faculty and Board, in solemn conclave assembled to consider matters. PF :if PK :sf :sf 4: :sf :sf Pk How different the atmosphere upon the day when the infants toddled up to the Registrar, and with pudgy, jam-stained lingers sealed the destiny of this institution ! Memorable indeed, the occasion when these representatives of the new era trundled into Peters Commons and, in compliance with shrilly-piped commands, were served with lVlellen's food and oat meal gruel! From the very beginning the little tots gave evidence of intelligence, a fact which they themselves admitted, and a most unusual case in the history of the school. Was it coincidence alone that professors went around with the haunted looks of those who, heretofore confident in their own powers, have come face to face with a superiority which they are conscious of, but dare not acknowledge? In purity of hopes and high ethical standards these darlings of Fortune have quite over-stepped their age. 'llhey have blazed a new trail and have put to shame those older and more sophisticated, who have been content with trying merely to help their fellowmen. Many interesting statistics prove the mental and moral precocity of the babes, a very few must suffice-9370 aspired to be sophomores, D721 expressed their intention of giving their lives in the noble work of bringing Greek culture to the Orang-Utans of Africag 3076 aim to humanize war by imposing the pen- alty of death for any violence more severe than spanking the sub-spinal regions of one's adversary. Indeed, it is said that this procedure already has been tried with startling success. One little chap is girding his loins for a desperate battle with the Bolsheviki menace in Spitzbergen. A scientific prodigy has isolated the lumbago bacillus, and by persistent inbreeding has succeeded in greatly improving the stock, thus rendering a mighty boon to humanity. Another child has gained literary pres- tige as the author of testimonials for Groan's "Extract of Moth Balls." Already she is recognized by critics as the most marvelous intellect that has ever lived between New Diggins and Spillville. But "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boyn, and. so these serious studies are broken up by frolics and simple games. To see the infants scamper down the field with the terrifying cry, "Mellen's and We, And Victory," fills one with admiration 'for their spirit and physical prowess. Farewell, little friends! We have felt your influence. You have been a lamp to our feet. You have given us new standards of honor, of courage, of truth. You have taught us to love modesty, and to abhor self-righteousness. VVe acknowledge the gift, and thank the givers. But one gift we shall cherish above all others. We had lost it for a time, but you have given it to us again. VVe in our worldly wisdom had begun to de- spise it, but you have restored it to us. You have once more awakened in us- Faith, Faith in childhood, Faith in the innocent childhood which you have so beautifully exemplified during your short sojourn among us. VVe thank you.

The Seminary The Universit f Dubuque had its origin in 1852, in the house of Nicolas Van V liet, who received into his home two young men in order to prepare them for carrying on religious work in this territory. The homelike spirit in which the institution was founded has been preserved, even with the growth of Du- buque into a standard school with accredited departments. The divinity school, which in the truest sense embodies the original aim of the institution, -is a department with a standard three-year theological course, which prepares its gfaduates to meet the requirements of Presbyterian ordina- tion examinations. ts graduates are numerous, and have found their way into all parts of the globe.iwhere they are living out the ideals which Dubuque has taught them. This yeartthe .Seminary has received a new impetus. As a result of the Seminary Drive for S150.000, a new building is to be erected, and the depart- ment is to be separated more completely from the other parts of the university. Fittingly enough, the building is to be named Van Vliet Hall, after the man who first caught the vision of Dubuque. l39l THE KEY. "".i -.'U 0fD l PAUL BUCHHOLZ, A.B.

Modesty forbids mentioning any names, and it would indeed be presumptuous to do so ere fame has found us out. We realize that all great men must needs pass through a period of obscurity before they enter upon the stage of public activity. And in order to secure our identity we have even with-held our pictures from this worthy publication, lest by chance our distinguished features draw unexpected attention and we be discovered ere our time be fulfilled. Thus far we have managed to escape any marked degree of distinction as a class, although as individ- uals we are well represented in various departments of college and seminary activities. Appreciating the fact that this is an age in which all great things are done through the agency of effic- ient organization, we are planning on correlating our forces next year and making a united effort to real- ize, even more completely, our cherished dream of world reformation.

A large number of the young men and-women who come to us are strangers in this land, who have not yet had the longed- for opportunity of contact with the ideals and spirit of the best in American life. Anotherfthough smaller, portion of your stu- dent-body consists of those born or reared in this country, who, for various reasons, have been deprived of the educational and cultural advantages which they crave. It is significant of the part our institution plays in the na- tional conscience, that these young men and women are directed to Dubuque, withcconhdence in its all-embracing welcome. To turn them away with an embittered distrust of our national in- stitutions and a distorted perspective of our national aspirations, would be to deny the mission of our school and of America. For the benefit of those young people,-the iinest blood of twenty nations-this department has been established. It is a serious responsibility,-the interpretation of the principles of Christian democracy to those who one day will leaven the entire world. But this our institution conceives to be her high dutyg with steadfast eyes she presses towards her goal. K' l57l g,j5g,,aIa .

At once you will recall your past experiences--some of which have been transformed from sorrow into joy, and the once unknowable ideas have actually been manufactured into realities of to-day. This can certainly be applied to the manifold clubs and societies of the Dubuque College girls, which are now blooming forth in the Y. W. C. A. of Dubuque University. Two years ago not one of us would have allowed herself to think, that 'we to-day wouldnbe bearing this name, Thus our hopes of yes- terday are realities to-day. Please do not assume that the name is all we possess-far be it from that-we are a living manifestation of that name. We are con- scious of the fact, that we have accomplished but merely a part of that which we had hoped. But our ideals are high and with Emerson we say, "Hitch your 'wagon to a star."' Our loftiest ambition as a Y. W. C. A. is to have every girl in this institution become a true follower of Christ, and that in turn these girls may be radiating sun- beams of Him, wherever they may go and with whomsoever they may come in contact. Every girl possesses a healthful vitality, and dormant possibilities are tingling within them. Our hope for the ex- tension of His Kingdom thru them cannot be abandoned. Cn 'another page in this book is printed a program, which is an informing feature of our activities of this year. Merrymaking for companionship has-also not been amiss. Hal- lowe'en, Christmas, February 29, and Easter have been observed with appropriate parties. The experiences gained in this association will be of future benefit and can never be purchased with material means. We have learned to know, to help, and to love each otherg and pleasant memories, which are sacred to us, will ever linger in our minds. "Onward, ever on- ward" is our hope and prayer to the sublime ideal of Christ our Savior. l63l' THE KEY, 1920 -'l.l""'.U0fD UofD Van Vliel Society Third Row-Prof. Kaupp, P.

But when, within the walls of our own beloved institution, there transpires a phenomenon, revealed only to a few members of a select group, it behooves us in the name of the common cause, to make known to such as may be interested in psychical research the secret of our wonderful experience. Three times during the last school year seances were held in the Par- lor of Severance Hall, all of which proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that the spirits of the departed return again to the haunts of the living, and make themselves known to those of kindred mindf These really had their beginning at a previous meeting which met in the upper room of Peters Commons, Friday evening, january 16, 1920. Here it was unanimously decided to try the experiment of reviving the spirit of the departed which had lain dormant during the first semester. A noted Doctor of Philosophy, who has since left our institution agreed to ofliciate at the first meeting which was called on Friday even- ing, january 30th. The experiment was a tremendous success, and even a Sir Oliver Lodge would have appreciated the message brought. It was virile with new life and gave promise of developing into something really remarkable. Two weeks later the second seance was held under the able leadership of one of our most hopeful and promising young Seminary graduates, and again all thirteen present felt thrilled with the strangeness and novelty of the meeting. It almost seemed as though the impossible had been accom- plished, and that that which had been dead had come to life again. But, alas! our hopes were soon to beiblasted by bitter disappointment. For but one more meeting was held, andthe poor unfortunate who guided the spirit at that session little realized at the time that it was to be his first funeral service, and that the spirit of the departed corpse which had so recently been resurrected was again to claim its own. And thus, gentle reader, we come to the close of our story, and fol- lowing the advice of expert psychologists, we leave to your own interpreta- tion the moral and its application. But for your own information and future peace of mind, we close with this epitaph: "Here rests in peace the spirit of the departed Van Vliet society." L. T.

The purpose of the society was to create an opportunity for its -members to become efficient in oratory and debate. ' Oratory is the well-spring of eloquence, and gushing up as the waters of life, it quenches the thirst of myriads of men, like the smitten rock of the wilderness, reviving the life of the desert wanderers. But, kind reader, do not think that oratory is our only enter- tainment, but to avoid monotony we render programs every Fri- day evening, which provide for various numbers, such as ora- tions, readings, musical numbers and debates. The aim of the society, however, is not only to develop the literary and musical abilities of the members, but to develop the social side of life. i Years will not deprive us of the pleasant memories of hikes, parties, and the annual banquet. Commencement will' deprive us of some of our active mem- bers, but we feel confident that at .the beginning of the new school year a large number of new students will be attracted by the integrity and enthusiasm of the organization, to fill the va- cancies left by the graduates, and that they will help us to keep up the spirit and the ideals of the society. l69l i-i'U ofD UofD.i'..'i THE KEY, 1 920 Columbia Literary Society Fourth Row-O.

The perpetuation of ideals, the establishment of tradition, the desire of far-sighted young men to accomplish great things. these were the elements that brought about the birth of Liceo Literario Cervantes. In the past the society has flourished in its undertakings. From the very beginning our members have shown signs of life and during the term of 1919-.1920 the steady stream of enthus- iasm ran high with all the f'Cervantofilos." There is something in the name "Cervantolilos," for with it the culture of a glorious past is linked with the present. And as we endeavor to achieve in active work the literary ideal so well accomplished by Cervantes, we refresh our programs with up- to-date and interesting subjects such as will be helpful in gain- ing a practical insight into the life of our era. Thus, not only contented in keeping alive a golden past, we pride in nourishing the spirit of modernism. Q "Be honest if you would be eloquent" serves well to give an idea of our programs, for all the "Cervantofilos" are earnest in their work, striving to develop a clear, forceful oratorical style, but, above' all, an honest and intelligent acquaintance of facts. We hope that in the future the new Spanish students will come into our society and keep up the good work that so far has been accomplished. l73l THE KEY, 1920 U of D U ofD Kossuih Oraiorical Socieiy Second Row-Kiss, Farkas, Jacob.

So in order to keep both societies alive and continue the literary work where. they left it, we united our forces, and by working together we were able to pro- duce very interesting and profitable programs. Since all of our members speak the Slavic tongues, we have arranged' our work so that one week is en- tirely devoted to the English and the other to the Slovenian. Our programs consist chieily of literary work. Special attention is also paid to the discussion' of the social problems of to-day in Which all the members are greatly interested. VV e have been benefited by the talks given in our weekly meetings by some members of the faculty. Through the aid of the Slovenian Literary Society and the faculty, we have been able to organize the Slovenian classes.

THE KEY. 1 920 La Tribu Hislory La Tribu is an organization existing among the girls of this school who are not living in the dormitories. It was established for the purpose of promoting fellowship and sociability among these girls, to bring them into closer touch with each otherg and further to do away with problems such as homesickness and the like which confront the girl not established with others in a dormitory. We were organized in February 1919 and the following persons were elected to office: Olive VVharton, Presidentg Marguerite Bech- tel, x"lCC-Pl'C'SiflCIltQ Florence Brunkow, Secretary and Mary Paisley, Treasurer. , The following social events took place during this administration: A progressive dinner. beginning with light refreshments at Miss Wharton's, dinner at Helen Skemp's, was followed by a hike to Bech- tel's at which place a demonstration of Delsarte was given and two mediums foretold the future of our clan. On April 2. we entertained the Benjaminites by a Hard Time So- cial at Helen Skemp's. Birthday parties were held on the birthdays of the members, Florence Brunkow, Sophia Apel, Frieda Albrecht, and Hulda Hepperle. Then in October a reunion of our charter members occurred at the Albrecht home at Sherrills, Iowa. The initiation of the new members took place at our Hallowe'en party at Miriam Barta's. This affair was sadly interrupted by two ghosts. In February a swap-and-grab bag social was held in connection with the annual election. A i ,Our present officers are: Marguerite Bechtel, Presidentg Helen Clarke, Vice-President, Frieda Albrecht, Secretary, and Helen Skemp, Treasurer. We wish to say with our vigilant mascot, "Mr, Owl," that we have had a very successful year and we look forward to a coming year of progress.

The .13 Club, an outgrowth of what was formerly known as the A. D. P., was organized some live years ago by a small esoteric group of men with a definite purpose in view. That purpose may briefly be summarized by Christian fraternity,- implying general helpfulness as well as a closer sociallrelation- ship between its several members, not only for the better shap- ing of their own individual character, but also for the enhance- ment of a deeper, truer and more virile college spirit. To ac- complish this end a varied group of college men banded them- selves together, knowing that numbers and unity of purpose would make them strong. But similarly as every ship of state must needs weather both stormy, treacherous anddangerous seas as well as the pleasant sunny calms, so must every' organization, whatsoever its nature, encounter treacherous shoals as well as the smooth deep chan- nels. Having more of less successfully weathered all seas dur- ing the past few years, the 13 Club has come to a place where it is desirous of changing from a two-master to one of several masts, and where in the past it was only possible to spread one or two sails, it nowmdesires to throw out to the breezes a fuller set, namely, by affiliating itself with some good national frater- nity and thereby benefitting not only itself but also the univer- sity as a whole. This brieliy is the ego of every member of the brotherhood, and to that end no efforts are being spared. In fact several committees are at present 'busily engaged in enrleavoring speed- ily to consummate the Club's aims. With the materialization of present plans the 13 Club stands at the dawn of a new day. lS5l -- ... THE KEY, 1 920 UofD UofD maj 5 A' I gr ,'?'5' L X :f I, ' 'I 'E ,l'15f:H f,,, I I 4' 'L f .

September Sth, 1919, was the first call and a large number of men reported for the team. Some of our veterans had not as Y ii yet finished their sum- mer's contracts and at A Hrst were not avail- . i able, but nevertheless the practice was be- gun in earnest by our coach, Mr. John G. Chalmers. There was quite a problem pre- sented to the coach by the loss thru gradua- tion of Sol Butler, the greatest foot-ball player that ever donned the moleskins at Dubuque. But there was a star in embryo and, before the season was half over, we realized that we had a second lfutler among us. Shortly before the first game, .lohn De-Berg and Sherman Arends reported and we were once again assembled. Quite a number of promising candidates re- ported. and within a week the first scrimmage was held. Our first game was with the LaCrosse Normal School. the same team that smirched a clean record the previous year, and we were out for revenge. In a slow and uninteresting game, made so by the extreme heat, we trounced the in- vader. Our next game was one of the most important of the season, with Coe College. We invaded Cedar Rapids and in one of the most sensational and exciting games ever seen on the Coe field, we defeated Coe l2-10. "Armyf' Bessemer, Krebs, Lowe. Carman and Hook played exceptionaly well in this game. and all the others were in there fighting with all they had until the final whistle. Gur next game was with Cornell College. A victory in this game would have given us a clear claim to the Conference title. Alas, we were not to wing the hand of Fate was against us. Altho we made two touchdowns that were not allowed, on forward passes out of the goal zone, and tho we made twenty first downs to our opponents' two, we could not 'fbring home the bacon." In the last minute of play we had a chance to win, but just as the ball was about to be passed the whistle blew. ending the game and our immediate chance at the Conference title. Coe College however defeated Cornell the next Saturday and it all ended in a three-cornered tie. Our next game was with Parsons College, another of the Conference teams They were reputed to be strong, and with our fellows not in the best' of condi- tion we invaded Fairfield County. "Army', was in bad shape and it was doubt- l93l THE KEY, 1 920 fF00ibn!!-C011ti111wd.j ful if he could start. Ilut, with the grit that made him famous all years, he went into the game crippled, and led to a 20-6 victory. The game was very rough, but our boys all came thru the ordeal in good style. VVe now began preparations for Luther College. The "Swedes" had again started foot-ball after a lapse of a cou- ple years. Big and husky, they were not . , - if . to be lightly reckoned ' ' -' e with and Coach Chal- mers gave the men hard work all week. Our machine was in the pink of condition and we trounced the Lutherans 50-7. The schedule now called for an invasion of the Missouri Valley Conference, supposed to be of a higher class than the Iowa Conference. Grinnell was the opponent and, flushed with our recent vic- tories, we left for Grinnell. To the surprise of all our most ardent admirers we simply ran away with the home team. Our team played with all the snap and pep that they were capable of, and when the dust of the battle cleared, the score- board showed us the victor, 31-14. This was quite a feather in our cap, and the critics of Iowa began to notice the machine that Coach Chalmers had built up. "Army" again showed that as a quarter-back and field-general he was with- out peer in Iowa colleges. As our farewell encounter of the season we stacked up against the Chicago Y. M. C. A. College of Chicago, Illinois. They had an excellent record and contained in their line-up some stars of the First magnitude, also men who had been stars at other colleges before entering the training school. The hard work of the week previous and the prime condition of our men were the deciding fac- tors and we overwhelmed the Wfindy City team, 50-O. Captain Krebs played a whirlwind game and every time that "Arrny', ran with the ball it was a large gain for Dubuque. Hook, Dellerg and Dirks, playing their last game for Du- buque, showed the same iight and stellar play that has characterized their work thruout their foot-ball career. Taken as a whole, the foot-ball season was a decided success and a monu- ment to the coaching ability of Mr. Chalmers, the greatest foot-ball coach in Iowa. He devoted his time unsparingly,.and the results of his efforts could be seen in every game. XYe are indeed fortunate in having a coach of his ability. and we sincerely hope that he will be turning out winning teams at the Univer- sity of Dubuque for many years to come. Next year we hope to win the Con- ference title without the shadow of a doubt, and at present writing the outlook is very bright. l94l l ofD UofD"l"-' .-1 1,.a,n-34.-yy y THE KEY, 1 920 UofD UofD FOOTHA LL LETTER MEN CAPTAIN PAUL KREBS "Tilly" played a hard aggressive game all season. His tackling and off tackle smashes were of the -highest orderg his style of aggres- sive play cannot be excelled by any player in the State. Ut is worthy of notice that in the Chicago Y. M. C. A. game Captain Krebs took the ball straight thru the line for a touch- down 85 yards away.J We will have "Tilly" for another season, and next year his name should grace the All-State mythical eleven. CORNELIUS HOOK The best center in the State. Hook in all his foot-ball has never been outplayed. He al- ways passes the ball with uncanny accuracy and then proceeds to take two men out of the play. We certainly will miss "Con" next year and we will always remember him as one of the greatest centers that ever played at the Delhi institution. R. VERE LOVVE Another of our boys from the State of Kan- sas. It was our sturdy halfback that gave us the lead in the Coe game, and it was this same lad who threw the enemy back when our fleet ends had spilled the interference. Lowe had honorable mention for All-Conference, and if he had been a punter would undoubtedly have made the Hrst team. STEPHEN BESSEMER "Bess" played the game that made him fa- mous in 1916. We had been waiting for "Bess" to come thru again and he did it with a ven- geance this year. The Coe game was Besse- mer's bestg his tackling and off-tackle smashes were spectacular. "Bess" received honorable mention on the All-Conference team and we are looking for him to place higher next year. i951 . T. THE KEY. 1 920 UofD UofD FOOTBALL LETTER MEN CAPTAIN-ELECT JOHN ARMSTRONG "Army" has won so many letters in all sports at the University of Dubuque that it is a hard matter to pick the sport in which he scintillates the most. At the beginning of the season we were without a quarterback, but up comes "Army" and plays sensational ball all season, ending up with selection for All-State and All-Conference elevens. Defense and of- fence, Johnny was always there and his selec- tion of plays merits praise. - THOMAS PARKER A Tommy set out to make a name for himself on the gridiron, and he succeeded. When our line was faltering in the Coe game, he put in the needed pep and played a large part in our victory. OLE CARMAN One of the surprises of the season was fur- nished by this lanky Swede. After trying hard t.o win a place in the back-field he was shifted to end. After a week "Ole" was playing at top speed. The honor of scoring the winning points in the Coe game fell to the lot of our stellar end. His tackling was good and his breaking up of interference was of the highest order. We look for great things from Carman 'next year. SHERMAN ARENDS One of the veterans of the squad, his play- ing this year shone with the same lustre as of old. This being his last year, Sherman play- ed with all the dash and pep possible, and when he hit the line he certainly was good for from 10 to 15 yards. His play attracted the notice of the critics and helwas picked for All- Conference. i961 - .,..f.4,a' THE KEY, 1 920 UofD UofD FOOTBALL LETTER MEN JOHN DEBERG It was with grief and joy that we were able to announce before the LaCrosse game that our star tackle had returned to school. Without any practice Jack stepped into the game and played with all the vigor of old. He did a great deal in helping us to defeat the Normalites and in all the games to follow. For four long years he has been one of the stars of our team, and it is with regret that we see John's foot-ball career come to a close. ' EVERT DIRKS Dirks played a hard consistent game, and whenever an off-tackle smash was called, the hole was always there for the man You sim- ply could not move our "Rock of Gibraltar" on the defense. This marks the end of "Old Reliable's" foot-ball career, and we can but hope that Conn will play as hard a game as Dirks always did. ELMER BAKER The "Homesteader," just back from the Marines, whose tactics come to good use in football. He never let anything get over or under him. It was a delight to watch him throw the opposing guards and tackles around. This is Felix's last year and his position will be a hard one to fill. SIMON LAY Another of the "old guard" and one of our trusty line-men. "Si" gave us his best which is some game. Lay di tinguishedlhimself in the Coe game, turning back the invader on numerous occasions. Aggressive, hard, clean foot-ball make Lay one of our most feared line-men. l97l THE KEY. 1 920 UofD UofD FCJOTBALL LETTER MEN VICTOR A. HARDER Three ends, each as good as the other, was our good fortune last year. "Pop" completed the list. Altho he had never played college football and little at high school, the "old man" reported for the squad. In a week "Pop" was "mowing them down", and we could soon see that he would be a regular. Altho handi- capped by bad legs, Harder played a smashing gameg when the pile was cleared "Pop" was always on the bottom. We have him with us next year and we are predicting great things for him. PAUL J. FARLEY "Pete" never played foot-ball at Dubuque, but had made quite a reputation at Atlantic City High School, N. J. When Coach Chalm- ers heard about this, he soon had "Pete" out. Farley developed into the best end of the sea- son on our team. Altho very light, "Pete" made it up in speed and iight. He tackled hard and low. Next year Farley should be a cracker-jack end, and if he can take on a lit- tle weight should break into the honor roll. WILLIAM SCHNECK "Wild Bill," as we are wont to call him, was everything his name implies. The hard- est problem of Coach Chalmers was finding out where to play "Bill," He starred as a center, guard and tackle. He was the bone of contention of the Scrubs. "Bill" will be with us again next year, and we are predicting in him a second Hook. l93l THE KEY. 1 920 UofD Uofn BASKETBALL Captain Lowe 901 THE KEY, 1 920 UofD ' UofD"'l The .Squad Second Row-Armstrong, Farley, Harder, Taber, Parker, Peterson fCoachJ First How-Duke, Lowe, Lennox, H001 THE KEY, 1 920 T-lU of D .U of D The Season Coach Peterson issued the call for basket-ball as- pirants in December, but as the Christmas holidays were upon us we were not able to do much. , The outlook was very bright for a winning team as i we had Captain Lowe, Armstrong, Taber and Parker , from last year's team. Qf the new men that reported Farley, Duke, Harder, Lennox and Yoo showed the most likely to clinch the vacant position. After trying various combinations, our coach decided on Armstrong and Taber, forwards, Parker and Farley, guardsg and Captain Lowe, center. This combination worked with snap and precision, and with Coach Peter- son's system working on all cylinders, we won our first game with Luther. VVe then met Des Moines College in a Conference game and they fell easy victims to our team. Next came the Cornell team, flushed with three straight victories over the lowa University team. Our team exhibited its best brand of basket-ball that night, and we simply rained goals in the second half, smother- ing the visitors, 42-26. This was our biggest victory of the season and the dopesters had us figured for first Ctvach Peterson place in the Iowa Conference. Now comes the sad part of the story. Vile started on a trip to Des Moines, for the purpose of meeting Des Moines College in a return game, Drake Uni- versity, and Simpson College, in three nights. The first named fell an easy vic- tim, Captain Lowe scoring more points than the entire Des Moines team. The next- night we played the Drake team, they got off to a wonderful start and we were trailing at the end of the hrst half, 13-8. Qur team came back with the old pep and, with one minute to play, we were within one point. Secretary Taylor, the official of the game, was decidedly off color. and was unable to handle the teams, so the game became a little rough. Not being able to cope with the situation, he began calling fouls without any reason, and he became so excited that he called a foul on Captain Lowe for asking what a previous foul had been called for. The Drake forward converted this foul into the tally that beat us. The next night we set out for Indianola to play Simpson, in a game that would decide the Conference Championship. VVho should we see but Sec- retary Taylor alighting from the train to officiate. VVel1, Coach Peterson ex- plained where the team stood and that no partiality would be tolerated. In the fastest game the writer has ever witnessed the Dubuque team went down to de- feat. lt was a good game and the Simpson players deserve all the credit for fC'0ntimicd on page IO.,l.j fioii THE KEY., 1920 ' UofD UofD 11021 THE KEY, 1 920 U of D. , -U ofD Basketball Leiter Men TABER "Red" played his best game in the Parsons melee when he caged fifteen bas- kets. The combination- Lowe to Armstrong to Ta- ber-was like the Sl,000,- 000 infield of Connie Mack and worked with the same precision. Taber will be back again next year and should break into the select list of All-Conference. ARMSTRONG Our four-sport man lived up to his reputation as one of the best shots in any Iowa college, and the crit- ics placed him on the first All- Conference team, at forward. "Army" played a fast game, especially at Cor- nell, where he had Sander- son dizzy in his efforts to guard him. "Army" led the team in scoring. A PARKER "Tom" played the same steady game that he has shown for the past two years. He did not confine his activities to guarding alone, but was a valuable cog in the scoring machine. Tom made the record of scoring in every game we played. Besides his stellar ability as a guard, his ge- nial disposition made him one of the most popular men in the Conference. FARLEY "Pete" was the surprise of the season. Having never come out for basket-ball at Dubuque, we were sur- prised to see the fast game he exhibited. There was a secret, for "Pete" was a star in his high school days at Atlantic City, N J.. Tom and Pete formed a formid- able pair of guards, and with both of them back next year the victories should be numerous. CAPTAIN Lowa Formerly a guard, Lowe was converted into a center and outjumped every man but Hendrickson, who tow- ered six inches above him. Lowe ran wild in the Des Moines game, caging ten field goals, and thruout the season played a hard con- sistent game. Lowe should have had a place on one of the Conference selections. H031 '-'...-lUofD UofDl...."""' THE KEY. 1 920 The Season I fBasketbalI--Continuedj g the fast, clean battle they put up. They were the best team that ours was called upon to face, and they made good their reputation as speed merchants. A re- turn game in Dubuque would have been worth going miles to see. YVe lost to Cornell, at Mt. Vernon, in one of the slowest games of the sea- son. It was anybody's game, but we lost it thru inability to convert our chances into goals. The opportunity was presented, but we lacked the scoring punch. The next game, which marked one chock full of excitement, was played at Cedar Rapids against Coe. It was one of those occurrences that are bound to occur now and then. A policeman, an angry mob, a couple of lights that would make Jack Dempsey turn green with envy, all helped to make the game one to be long remembered. We started with live regulars and finished with three. Harder and Len- nox were substituted for Parker and Armstrong, and altho it broke up the team- work, they both played good games individually. VVe lost the game, and again we had no chance to play a return game. Now out of the running for the Con- ference Championship, we started out afresh and trounced our rivals in all the remaining games of the schedule. Our season was not as successful as it might have been, but the boys were in the game all the time fighting hard, and not for one moment did they forget the Dubuque spirit. With our team intact next year we will profit by our losses and expect to see the Conference banner flying on Delhi street. 559 ll04l UofD 1' 1 ,.

To start the season we had Butler, Bregman, Duke, Arends, Arm- strong, Krebs and Rogers. Out of this galaxy of stars a relay team was to be picked for the Drake Relays. Our Coach, Mr. Harry Smith, a former Olym- pic champion in the dashes, had a big problem ahead as all the men were good track men. The only man sure of a place was Captain Butler. ' Three days before the meet Coach Smith picked the quartet that would represent the Blue and White at Drake. The team consisted of Captain-elect Duke, Bregman, Ar- ends and Captain Butler. In one of the most sensational-races of the meet, in which Captain Butler had to pick up twenty yards before he was on even terms with Frentress, the Coe flier, Dubuque was victorious. In.this race Sol ran one of the most remarkable- quarters of the year. Off with a good start, the school had high hopes of a Conference championship. Due to injuries and scholastic difficulties our team was not represented by its full strength, and in the meet with Coe we .did not do as well as expected. Our team of ten men ran against thirty-two Coe men, and the Cedar Rapids men captured the meet. Butler and Duke were the shining lights- of the meet. The next meet was the Conference meet, Duke entered five men in this meet and in a remarkable come-back won second place in the meet where such col- leges as Cornell, Des Moines, Coe, Simpson and Parsons were entered with full teams. Captain Butler was the star of the meet, accomplishing what no man has ever done in a Conference meet, winning Eve first places for a total of 25 points. He was crowned Conference champion inthe hurdles, dashes, shot-put, broad-jump. Joe Duke, our popular captain-elect, won thepchampionship in the running high jump, and placed in several other events, as' did Armstrong. "Army" wouldhave captured the pole-vault, but he had suffered a pulled ten- don the week previous and was not in shape. Bregman showed up well in the events he took part in. - ' Taking into consideration the shorttime and preparation we had, and the loss of several of our men, the season was 'a remarkable success, the men all worked hard and all they won was by dint of hard work. Our Captain, Sol Butler, was the shining light of all the track men in Iowa, and defeated the cream of the United States at the University of Pennsylvania relay races, in the 100-yard dash and the broad jump, in the latter breaking the records for this event in the Pentathlon. Armstrong and Duke have the makings of great track men, but they were not noticed so much because they were in the shadow of the greatest track man that ever donned the spiked shoes at this institution. 11111 THE KEY, 1920 ""l'.. -U of D U Of 1 Academy Fooiball Third Row-Buchholz, Patrick, Jansen, F.

The win- ners of last year's tournament played thru the entire tournament. Aalderks, the champion of last year, again came thru with flying colors and, paired with Qliver Ohmann, won the doubles.. Miss Florence Brunkow won the Ladies' Singles, and Homer Kaupp won the Academy singles. Tennis is getting to be a very popu- lar sport at our institution, and some day we hope to have it officially recog- nized by the school as a minor sport. Last year in the in- door championship our doubles team defeated the city champions gaining prestige for themselves and the school. A Tennis Club has been organized and is gaining many new members. Next year the membership should include the entire school and a schedule with other schools will be drawn up. Q I Some good players were developed, notably Charleson, Beebe, Roberts and Patrick. With Aalderks, Charleson, Ohmann, and Beebe back in school next year, a good team is assured. rnsy THE KEY. 1 920 SOL BUTLER I ""'i Conference champion, State champion, Inter- . Allied champion, all in one year, was the record j achieved by our Captain, Sol Butler. Never before in the history of the school was such a record achieved by any man, and the laurels for the vic- tory go to our colored youth. Vvfhen the United States government decided to send a team across the pond to compete with the best of the teams of other countries, the selection of men who had been in the service of the country began. Butler, of the University of Dubuque, Harry VVorthington, the Dartmouth star, and others prominent in track ath- letics were mentioned. Butler was the unanimous selection from men of this country to go over, by virtue of his victories in the 100-yard dash and broad jump at the Penn Relays. On his departure for France, Sol was given a rousing send-off by the college band and all the students proceeded to the station to give our champion a rousing farewell. The next news we heard of Sol was his defeat in the 100-yard dash by Eddie Teschner, the ex- Harvard flier, and Paddock, the California star. But we were not counting on Sol in the hundred as . much as in the broad jump. Our hopes were not in vain, for the cablegram brought us the news of his remarkable jump and vic- tory, attaining a new French record and nearly smashing the world's record. His actual jump was 24 feet 9 inches. In this event he defeated the stars from France, Belgium, United States, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and other countries. As a reward he was presented with medals from the Government of France, the United States, with a certificate by General Pershing, and the King of Montenegro, not to be outdone, made Sol a Knight of the Third Order of Danilo. Wie are proud that a man from our university should gain such prominence and honors, and it is a credit to our institution that we are possessor of men of a calibre which can compete with and defeat representatives of nations all over the world. VVhen Sol hangs up his track shoes for good, the records he achieved while he was at the university will live on as long as the walls of the buildings are standing. All credit to Sol, and may he be as successful in life as he was in Athletics.. VVe are looking expectantly for him to break the world's record in the broad jump at the Olympics at Antwerp this summer and, a little tip from the Editor, I think he will. fum illll of D .U of 1 IVXXISIC X Xf 'AJ THE KEY. 1 920 l-U of D. . -U of D MUSIC D PAR TMEN T The music department of our institution has assumed a position of commanding' importance, not only in the school itself, but also in the life of the community. Under the capable and whole- hearted guidance of Mrs. Leman, director of vocal music, and Mr. Bremicker, director of instrumental music, this department has grown until it now boasts of half-a-dozen organizations which compare favorably with any similar organizations in the State. Mrs, Leman, as head of the vocal department, has an inspiring personality which accounts for the success attending her work. The glee club, the mixed chorus, the girls' glee club, the university quartet, and the classes in vocal music all bear testimony to her genius for things musical. The instrumental department has made an enviable record un- der the direction of Mr. Bremicker. The enthusiastic reception accorded the orchestra on its recent tour stands as witness to his tireless efforts. The large class of piano students receives instruc- tion from teachers at the Kleine School of Music, through special arrangement with our institution. During the first semester, and throughout Mrs. Leman's leave of absence, Mrs. Minert took charge of the vocal work in an effic- ient and successful manner. Miss Ethel Grundy, as assistant and accompanist to Mrs. Leman, deserves great credit for the faithful and skilful manner in which she discharges her duties. The music department plays a vital part in the life of the school and community. May it continue to flourish and to make itself felt as an agency of beauty and progress! 11171 THE KEY., 1 920 UofD UofD THE BAND H181 'lWi.-'U of D -U of D.'i""i' THE KEY, 1 920 University Band T he University Band, formerly known as the Dubuque College Band, under which name it existed up until the change of the institution's name, is growing steadily, and sees a bright horizon to be realized in the near future. This organization has surely been blessed with favor in its striving for success. Within a year we can look back and see a disorganized group of would-be musicians striving hard every Monday evening 'to blend their efforts into harmony, and then we see the Spring come with a new vigor and inspiration, with a tour in viewg and then, and only then, did -the boys start to hustle. NVith his little nucleated group, the Director commenced conscientiously to have a band of polished musicians by May Ist. He had achieved this end when, on April 27th, the band had the distinguished honor of leading the parade at the annual celebration of Gen. U. S. Grant's birth- day at Galena, Ill. The management was now confident of success and urgedthe tour to its uttermost. The following towns cordially entertained us to the very utmost of their ability, for which we offer our hearty thanks: In order they were, Grundy Center, Dyke, Wellsburg, Ackley, Applington, and Parkersburg, six live, progressive, little towns in the heart of the State of Iowa. ' ' The band boasted of being the best musical organization. that ever went out to represent our institution, and praise from these districts surely confirms this report. I The band this year is not up to par, due to the graduation of some of the more important members and the absence of others, but those that are left are doing their best for the attainment of their ideal. Many of the boys are learning their instruments, this being their first year, but the older members are doing their best to hold the "ship" together until next year, when we predict a better band than ever. The band went with the orchestra this spring as a supplement to their concerts and traveled in the State of Wisconsin, and.all members speak very favorably of the good times and cordial treatment they were permitted to enjoy. The institution has most promising material for the band, and is laying plans for the best organization it has ever had. For all who can play an instrument, the band offers a great opportunity to receive valuable train- ing and to advance the interests of the school at the same time. 11191 THE KEY, 1920 UofD UofD U niversiiy Orchestra h fe Third Row-Petersen, W, Johnson, Rockwell, Plucker, Sprang, Bird, Loeniker Drees man, Nelson, Berger, Klauser.

This town is just dandy, only we are not doing as well socially as we might. Some of the boys are faring real well, but we older fellows, that have learned to stay away from fickle women, have not met many peo- ple yet. Guttenburg turned out fine last night and we had a very apprec- iative audience, and they were not all that turned out, for this morning we all turned out at 4 o'clock to go over by ferry to Glen Haven, and thence here. Highland is a dandy little town and has lots of nice-looking girls, but of course none of them bother me. My friend, that is the singer, is a rather passive youth and. as he will take care lest I stray from the path of recti- tude, I fear not. Vt7ell I will look for your letter at Lone Rock. Hope you got my card from Guttenburg. I I remain very affectionately, Yours, I Muscoda, Wis., May 7th, 1920. My ,dearest ----. o So glad to hear irom you this afternoon. One oi the boys brought your letter to me. How kind of you to drop me a line of encouragement. VVe are surely getting along line. Highland opera house was packed to over- Howing and they surely had an appreciative audience. The concert went off as usual. Rev. Bremicker gave a little party for some of us. Some school teachers were there, but only a few, and the boys took them home. I lived next door, or rather near there, so I was home early. Many, or rather two or three, of the boys report a good time at the "jitney." I don't know what it was, but suppose it was some kind of a roller skating coaster or bus ride or something. VVent from Highland to Lone Rock and played to a small azidience, but gave them a good concert. Lone Rock was hit by a cyclone last year and most of the town left. We played for the rest. Two of the boys report very favorable social progress, but I think they're just kidding. Some of the fellows dropped over to Avoca with us to-night on the way to Muscoda, I think they stopped with relatives. Arrived in Muscoda this noon,--that is I mean the rest of the boys,-so that we were all together here this noon. The boys are all at their various places enjoying themselves.

A Glee Club History D The University Glee Club has just completed na most successful year, both from the standpoint of concerts and that of increased membership. Although it was predicted that the Club would this year work under difficulties, because of lack of material, it has nevertheless shown itself to be one of our strongest and most popular musical organizations. The Club consists of twenty members, each possessed with a well-trained voiceg and their knowledge and vocal effect and technical efficiency are phases of their art which have advanced them to so high a position among Iowa's foremost Glee Clubs. The success attained by the Club during the past year is due to the efforts and cooperation of each member, and to-its capable director, Mrs. A. W. Leman. It has been the ambition of the organization and its director, to make the year's work be an asset to the University, and no stones have been left unturned to accomplish this end. However, the Club was handicapped during the year, be- cause of the absence of Mrs. Leman, who was obliged to leave for California for the betterment of her health in early December and did not return until late in March, but the work of the Club progressed as usual. The organization gave its annual concert in this city in early December. Mr. Louis Kreidler, baritone, of the Chicago Gpera Company, was elected as their soloist, and a very interesting program was presented. The concert was a decided success in every way In spite of the fact that the young men had had but a few. weeks' coaching, under the careful direction of its leader, it was successful invairfranging concerts, four of which were given out of town. V. The whole number applied themselves to such good effect that many favor- able comments upon the rendition of their program greeted their appearance, which took place at the Third Church of this city.

VVe have come at last to Qlet us pronounce the word with awej the Drama, which has Finally come into its own at Dubuque. For years the histrionic muses have been crowded into the shadows by the other activities of student life and have retired in mute despair. seeing no rift in the clouds which shut them from the sun of popularity. But their time has come! The "buskin'd stagei' has busted into popularity, and, judging from the plans that are being made, bids fair to become an attached hxture in the complicated mechanism of student activities. Thalia and Melpomene, clad, it is true, in the garments of commercialism, are basking in favor-and, sad to say, all ranks of students: athletes, scholars. and neither. are furnishing many who are eager to play Romeo to their Julietsfk i This is how it started. Although for several years Prof. Ficke has been urging that someone in the English department woo hckle Inspiration and at- tempt to write a modern play, to be produced by college players, no budding playwright has as yet undertaken the task. Inspiration proved too mild a stim- ulant: it required the goading lash of stern Necessity to start the comic sphere a-rolling. It was agreed that the Y. M. C. A. and Y. XV. C. A. should send represen- tatives to the Student Volunteer Convention held at Des Moines in December. How this was to be done without money was a grave problem indeed. In fact no answer presented itself until our Dean of VVomen, Mrs. Skinner, suggested that money was a necessity, and that some of it might be obtained by giving a Vaudeville Night, with a one-act playlet as the More dv rvsistazzcv. CWell, any- way, you know what we meanj The idea spread and rehearsals soon began. A humble beginning, perhaps, but it contained the germ of something greater, as we intend to demonstrate if we ever find our way through this thing. VAUDEVILLE NIGHT The show as it was finally presented on the evening of December 1, had anything we have seen lately at the Majestic simply Hbackd off the stage," even if we do say it ourselves.

The band blew its way through a wild chaos of chords and otherwise, that loosened the bricks in the walls. With Grimm's assistance, Ce- lander shoved a medicine ball, a base-ball bat, and three beer bottles down Eitzman's neck, a feat which we are inclined to believe the screen and shadows made possible. fRemarkable thought, indeed lj And of course, it may pass un- mentioned that when the fair dancers finished everyone applauded for more.

It took place on April 9th and was in the hands of the Junior class, whose success once more proves its versatility. The occasion was widely heralded, and New York critics failed to come only because they did not know about it. QSO they say, but Dame Gossip whispers that they did not have enough superlatives to describe it.j The cast was well chosen and nicely balanced, and under the direction of Miss Bliss, every member interpreted his role with professional finesse. The play is not the easiest to stage, from either the dramatic or the scenic point of view, but every difficulty succumbed to the tireless assaults of the Thespians. The theme of this famous comedy illustrates the fact that the course of true love is quite as rocky as the straight and narrow way, but is promptly and well paid in the end. fCf. Al B'remicker.j The victim of "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortunei' who, after all, does not fare so badly, was impersonated by Mr. Adalbert Bremicker. This agreeable gentleman qualified 1-A as Brewer of the Brimming Bowl, and Mr. Farley entered the same rank on the other side of the counter. Betty, in the person of Miss Florence Brunkow, was the bone of contention C pardon the metaphorj between the two dogs of' Love and Lucre, until they compromised and in a most undog-like way walked off together with the bone. Josie, the heiress, otherwise known as Miss Minnie Meyer, broke all prece- dents by marrying in accordance with papa's wishes. Angie and Tracy gave a reproduction of the old-time courting days which made grampaw and grammaw pinch themselves to see if they were dreaming. The other members of the cast acquitted themselves nobly of their several parts. An appreciative audience filled the house, and several victims of insomnia reported that they had passed a most beneficial evening. The cast was presented with a box of lemons by the "Society for the Promotion of Misery" and invited to come again. vs p at Pk if ak wk wk wk The damage has been done. Giving a Nay is becoming a fad at the Uni- versity of Dubuque. About six of the college and academy classes have been planning to display their dramatic ability next year. A strong dramatic club is proposed. Inspired by the success of the Juniors, the Academy graduates de- cided to try their hand at the gentle art. How they fared we have yet to learn. Their efforts seem to be directed into classical channels, for in spite of the sec- recy observed, suggestions of Bill Shakespearels famous graveyard scene between Thisbe, Pyramus, the lion, and a chink in the wall have Hoated around. For them we can but wish success, and for the drama Cwhether or not that name seems presumptuousj many years of happy and prosperous existence at our Alma Mater. H301 ' THE KEY. 1920 SOCIAL Each individual is the product of his social environment. Vlfhile at college we meet new friends continually. Our acquaintances are happy remembrances which will linger long in our minds. The first social of the year was the annual President's Reception at Peters Commons, which was indeed enjoyed by all. This is always a real 'iget-togetheru affair. "Have you met Miss -1-P" "Meet Professor -- and his wife", and "Pleased to make your acquaintance" were heard throughout the evening. Dr. and Mrs. Steffens are excellent hosts and to them are due many of the friendships we have in college. Soon after the opening of school, an out-of-the-ordinary social was held on our college campus, the students and professors being entertained by the Y. M. C. A. A delightful evening was spent and frolic, after which we were treated with watermelon. Everyone experienced again the days of his youth. HALLOVVEEN PARTY Who would have recognized the Commons in all its glory of Hallowe'en decorations on the night of October 31? Ghosts to tell your fortune as you en- tered, and ghosts to give you the cold and deathly hand of welcome as you went into the reception hall. And more than this, ghosts who insisted on being part- ners to certain young ladies during the grand march. ' Corn shocks as symbols of autumn were the chief decorations. Grinning jack-0'-lanterns served to light up the room, and it may be added that all the guests were thankful for this modest invention, as the electric wires were disconnected during the course of the evening by someone .seeking I-Iallowe'en fun. There were fortune-tellers ga- lore and very few guests escaped without knowing their fate. When the or- chestra began to play, everyone dropped into line for the grand march, and appropriate games followed. Last but far from least was the serving of a de- lightful lunch. CHRISTMAS PARTY The Y. W. C. A. did a bit of social service during the Christmas season by entertaining fifty children at Severance Parlor. The children were taken from the poor and needy families of the city and were given a bit of real Christmas enjoyment. A short program was given by the girls, through which the true meaning of Christmas was explained, and the birthday of our Savior was dwelt upon. But the climax was reached when the children were introduced to a huge Christmas tree and old Santa appeared on the scene with his bag full of toys. And what a pleasure it was for the girls to fill the little stockings with candy, nuts, and pop-corn! It not only brought joy to the little tots, but' it also created in the Y. W. C. A. a new joy in giving and service for others, We hope that this may continue to be an annual event. - ' SOCIETY PARTIES The Philophronia, Webster, and Columbia Literary Societies all did their best to make the year 1919-20 a sociable one. Each society, at various times 'during I1311 flll 0fD UofD-'l' THE KEY. 1 920 "....i'l.1U 0fD UofD'l-."' the school year, gave a social for its members and friends. These socials were held at Severance Parlor, and ordinarily consisted of a short snappy program given by some of the most talented members, after which the social committee took charge of the entertainment. The rest of the evening was then spent in games, contests, and refreshments. In addition to this, the Philophronia wiener roast last fall aroused considerable comment, and Webster promises to break all records in her annual banquet which is to take place in the near future. LEAP YEA5R PARTY ' February Z9 was the date. Eight o'clock was the time. Severance Hall was the place of one of the biggest and best social events of the year. The price of admission for every young lady was the presence of a gentleman. The reception committee stood near the door, and no young lady was admitted who had failed to carry out the leap year custom. For several weeks the different committees had been busy endeavoring to make the social a success and to carry out the different leap year customs. The program consisted of the grand march, conversation, cupiditea, circle promenade, proposals, supper march, and hot cof- fee. After this a very delightful lunch was served, and the young ladies es- corted their guests to their various homes, in regular leap year style. THE 13 CLUB' The 13 Club entertained about thirty friends at a delightful sleigh-riding party. The guests gathered at Peters Commons from which the group started in bob-sleds. After a long ride and several mishaps, supper was served at Lore and the happy party returned. Great preparations are on foot in anticipation of the chow fest, the crown- ing event of the year in 13 Club history. The affair promises to be one of Lu- cullian splendor. However, owing to the food scarcity, the members have pledged themselves to pay not more than S10 a plate. The evening augurs an old- fashioned 'fmorning after." MRS. STEFFENS' RECEPTION Mrs. Steffens gave a reception for the young ladies at Severance Parlor. All the co-eds were present, and it is needless to say that the evening was a most delightful one. Mrs. Steffens was assisted by Mrs. Leman in making the evening pleasant. An informal program of music and readings was rendered. The remainder of the evening was spent in games, after which refreshments were served. CLASS PARTIES The evenings on which the Freshmen and Sophomores have their socials are always funny and exciting. On the evening of the Sophomore social, two of the boys were delegated to carry the refreshments from Peters Commons. But for fear that the Freshmen would pounce upon them and attempt to share the goodies, the two unfortunate Sophs were surrounded by the rest of the class as a body guard. The Freshman party was conducted quite peaceably, but the results that en- sued were far from pleasant from a pacifist point of view.

Captain Kidd promenaded with Dolly Madison, and the powdered exquisite so far forgot himself as to pass the time of day with old Uncle Tom. Farmer jenkins Hirted with his farmerette, and the constable con- descended to chat with the Romany girl. Though so very diverse in rank and temperament, all were as one when it came to the grand finale, which was staged as only waiters know how. THE JUNICR-SENIQR HANQUET Classes may come and classes may go, but the junior-Senior banquet goes on forever. Even though the Class of 1921 is a very busy one, it has found time to give the graduating class a rare treat by placing before them a square meal. The banquet was held on May 19, at the banquet hall of Peters Com- mons. The decorations were carried out in the class colors. The most inter- esting feature of the evening, however was the witty toasts proposed by mem- bers of both classes. A four-course dinner was served and it was pronounced the apogee of epicurean fastidiousness. Besides the major social events, under the auspices of the various organiza- tions, there have been private outings and house parties too numerous to men- tion. Societies in the different churches of the city have extended a most cor- dial welcome to our students, and have endeavored to make them feel at home. All of these social activities help in relieving the routine of study, knit the bonds of good fellowship and make for well-rounded culture, and the good times we experience are by far not the least of our education.

Uf course we refer to the caricature kind, who has been pictured from time immemorial in the so-called comic supplements of our best newspapers and magazines. The you11g man who appears before the financial magnate immediately after casting aside his cap and gown, the large-headed, over-optimistic type who assures him in a rather condescending manner that he will consider taking over the cares and worries of his business and guarantees just as a side issue to inject a little pep into the concern. As far as we can see, this person exists in but mythical form. Take the average Senior class at graduating time and, we ask you, is there anything more sad, more pathetic, more depressing? VVe see a group of long-faced young men clad in freakish mourning garb, trying by reason of tradition to look their dig- nilied part, but in reality appearing frightfully and ashamedly self-conscious. lf we look close. we shall see tremors of doubt, fear, or terror. which each countenance is vainly trying to suppress. Pitiable? Surely, and why not? The average college man, with nothing but a college education at graduation time, realizes to some extent just what he is up against. The momentous obstacles which he sees blocking the way of his future, unperceived by the golden dreams of his Freshman year, have now force- ably come before him. lle takes a general survey of his equipment for life and this is what he finds: he has a knowledge of a smattering of subjects which should enable him to carry on a fairly good conversation, he knows something of the literature and authors of the Elizabethan period, etc., but in this day of llolshevism on the one hand, and Ring Lardner and George Barr McCutcheon on the other, he finds that to talk about such things is not only to be behind the N351 THE KEY. 1 920 times, but to be boring to the average audience. If he has been mathematically inclined, he has come all the way along the line from Trig to the Calculus and mayhap higher, but he finds that these are only elementary aids when it comes to adding up his living expenses according to the present standards and the high- er cost of living. Then he knows something about Chemistry or Physics and can tell you off-hand what a basic is, or a microforad, but his knowledge of the hammer and saw, the pipe wrench and pipe die has been derived from hearsay alone, and hearsay will not admit him into the realms of the carpenter, the plumber, and the other moneyed men of our day. He can teach. Oh surely he can teach, and with the present scarcity he Finds many openings, but when there is a scarcity there is always somewhere a hitch, and the colored gentleman in the woodpile in this case turns out to be the stipend offered for his servicesg and we are using stipend advisedly. Perhaps we have left out a few things in our inventory of the capabilities of the Senior, but if so we could trace them to- ward a conclusion in much the same way. Wliat. then, is the advantage of a college education outside of the four years of pleasant associations and good times connected with it. Are we pessimistic? Are we advising against college and its results? Are we arguing against the accepted theory that knowledge is power? Emphatically no and decidedly not! We are merely setting forth the gloomy outlook which the average graduate of to-day thinks is before him. Vtfe are trying to put in print the feelings that each graduate has experienced, and by recalling them to his mind cause a slow grin to spread over his face as he reflects upon himself and the success which fol- lowed, and thus by dedicating this space to our Alumni we hope to alleviate the worriment and fears of the present Senior class. -J.

There was a feeling of un- rest and of intense expectancy among the college students, for was this not the day appointed for the- upper classmen's banquet, and was it not a custom of four years' standing to kidnap the powers of the senior class on that day? This year especially, the little Freshmen had been very active and had given promise of things that were to happen. And the day before, Sol Butler had wagered five ironmen that he would not be ab- sent from the banquet. The frosh commenced their activities early. Already before breakfast the chugging of mo- tors, slamming of doors, the sounds of a struggle on the middle section stairs, and the clanking of shackles roused the slumbering neutrals from their dreams. At breakfast the chairs usually occupied by the Senior president, Sisler, and by Butler were vacant. During the forenoon a car drove up to the Main Building and bore away three more of the dignified class. Speculation as to the hiding place of the seniors was rife, ru- mors were as current as in the prehistoric days of the S. A. T. C., but authoritative information was at a premium. Freshmen straggling in from the scene of activities uttered mysterious things about Epworth, Galena, and Maquoketa, towns as scattered as the four winds themselves. e Hut there are Haws in the most carefully constructed machine, and the exact hiding place of the unfortunate Seniors at last became known and reached the ears of those who were eager to hear it, chief of whom were the Sophs. The - gg flag pole incident of sev- eral weeks before still rankled in their hearts, as the odor of putrid grease still clung tothe trous- ers of some of them, and they were resolved to thwart the designs of their foes if at all poss- ible. It was certainly an ex- citing day for that holiest of hamlets, Epworth. At about tive o'clock two cars 11391 THE KEY, 1 920 "'T..4..1'UofD UofD'l bearing the blood-thirsty Sophs sped down the main street. The village smith dropped his glowing iron and gaped, the postmaster stopped in the midst of a most interesting post-card and stared, while the constable nearly swallowed his teeth in the excitement. But not for long. The rescuers drove to the home of Sisler, pulled him into a car, and raced on for their next Held of operation. Meanwhile the Freshmen had located in a meadow at Kidder. There they were spending the time taking pictures of their captives and playing cards with them. Suddenly into this tranquil scene rushed the vehicles of destiny. Things began to happen in a hurry. The fresh- ies jumped to their feet and made a show of resistance, but wisely retired when they say the superior number of the enemy. Then came the pleasant task of immersing the victims in the pond near which they had so obligingly made camp. The Sophs were efficient, even to the ex- tent of removing the trousers of one who re- monstrated that they were the best pair he had. The return journey was made in three differ- ent ways. The Sophomores, victorious, bore with them the rescued Seniors and, after several more adventures, hustled them to the scene of the banquet, where their Flannel shirts and soiled breeches bore mute but elo- quent witness to the story they told. The Freshmen, wet and forlorn, withdrew to Kidder and boarded a freight.-All but one, who was constrained to make his leisure way along the Hawkeye, clad in the dazzling glory of his B. V. D.'s. All agreed that certain aspects of the day showed college spirit of the highest form. The Class of '22 carefully guarded all pho- tographs of the day, with the result that a few have been preserved for repro- duction on these pages. And now the event and, we hope, the custom itself has passed into history, -one of the memories which those who partook in its will cherish when- ever bthey think of Du- buque. 11401 -""'-'1"'U ofD UofDi..l , . .-.. .,,..,,1..:',.4 .--5 THE KEY, 1 920 The Proc-Rush That the hue art of hating one's enemy is not entirely dead, was indis- putably proved on April 7, when the Freshmen and Sophomores furnished the wind-up to the big card recently staged on the European arena by several world-celebrities in honor of their patron, Mars. That bewhiskered gentleman, when all was over, asked which was supposed to have been the main attraction, and after being politely informed, shook his head and repeated the old saw about the cart and the horse. The occasion, indeed, was worthy of the heroic stand made by both par- ties. It came about in this way. The nestlings of '23, just feathering their pinions, and intent upon higher altitudes, grew "cocky", according to reports from Sophomore headquarters. This so outraged the Sophs' sense of the eternal uniitness of the Freshmen, that they deemed it their fore-ordained duty to carry the gospel of humanity to the aspiring sinners. They went about the job with commendable single-mindedness, and with the self-assurance and thoroughness of Old Dutch. The one plank which they swung over the heads of the Freshmen was, that every member of the clan use only the western door of old Main, and the other portals were seal- ed with the seven seals of Anathema. Now the Freshmen were exceedingly wroth with this well-meant med- dling, and devised retaliatory measures. The next night the hand of a mysterious visitant foretold the doom of the Sophomores. The Freshmen went out with their shirt-sleeves up-rolled, And their brushes were dripping with green, I am told. And the pride of the Sophies, unsmote by the Est, Hath vanished like snow in the summer, I wist. The Sophomores, uncowed by the omens which so plainly testified against them, seized some of the rebellious tribe, and gave them the privilege of eras- ing the ghostly warnings. And then they proceeded to use the rod in a manner that must have brought a grin of approval to the face of Solomon's mummy. Following this revolution and counter-revolution, a sort of guerilla war- fare set in, and woe to him who fell into the hands of the enemy! His hair- I1411 THE KEY. 1 920 l ofD UofD "-" less scalp bore horrible testimony to the fiendish cruelty of the foe!

A 4 The appointed time found Freshies and Sophs out to a man. A set of rules had been nailed to the goalpost on Kane Heights and was defended by the Sophomores. The Freshmen were given twelve minutes to tear it down. Many were the deeds of valor witnessed by gods and men that day! For the warriors had cast aside their,Sabbath garb, and went at it with bare hands. Fierce was the light, great was the din, many were they who bit the sacred dust of a score of battles. To the hawks circling overhead it must have looked like two roving bands of army ants. contending for the privilege of cating the goalpost. Like the Spartans at Therlnopylae did the Sophomores defend their postg and like the Greeks at Marathon did the Freshmen charge them. Greek met Greek and the result was a gambler's choice. Petersen, the attenuated shadow of a tooth pick, had ripped a corner off the paper, but otherwise little damage had ensued. Suddenly Charleson leaped for the pole, grasped the prize,-and victory! d Such was the siege at the goalpost as recorded by eye-witnesses of the affair. Peace was immediately concluded, and with it the warlike spirit melted away, and the Freshmen were again at liberty to pursue their harm- less pleasures. Such is class spirit!

After this he studied Oriental languages at the University of Kazan, and a year afterwards he began to study law. He received his diploma in 1848. He lived on his es- tate until 1851, when his brother, an artillery officer, induced him to visit the Caucasus. Charmed by the life there, he joined an artillery regiment, and in 1853 was attached to the army of the Danube during the Crimean cam- paign. During this period,'he published the autobiography of his boyhood. He took part in the battle of Sebastopol, .and later put his experiences into written form. These sketches immediately placed Tolstoy among the few great masters of the day. He pointed to the horrors of war, in the spirit of that cruel cold-blooded realism which is the chief trait of his logic. At the end of the war Tolstoy resigned from the army and went home. In 1857, he went abroad and sowed the seeds of his disappointment in modern civilization, and was protesting against the ignorance and poverty in modern society. Then he settled on his estate and devoted himself to educational problems among the peasants. In Yasnaya, Polyana, he organized educational circles of young teachers. He opened several schools,ppublished an educational review in which he ex- pounded his theories of instruction and gave accounts of his own work as a teacher in elementary schools. He explained that the greatest impediments to the development of popular instruction are preconceived theories and their arbitrary imposition on the people without examining the people's needs or the suitability of the theories to those needs. In the conclusion of his argu- ment he states that the sole educational method must be experience freed from preconceived ideas, whilst the only guide must be liberty, as without it no experiment of any value can be accomplished. ' To these free experiments Tolstoy devoted himself in his own school at Yasnaya Polyana. He asserted "that reading and writing are not the first and consequently most important steps in education. There are many illit- erate people with experience, and much useful and even technical knowl- edgeg while, on the other hand, there are literate men who do 11ot possess any of those qualities." Concerning the ways of teaching, Tolstoy found that method best which requires the least effort from the childg but he considers the principal re- quirements in teaching to be individual talent and art in the teacher. "Teach- ing is an art, its development and improvement have no limits, but perfection is unattainable." Tolstoy draws a sharp line between education and instruction. Educa- tion is more or less an enforcement of will on the childg instruction leaves it comparatively free. For the first he finds no efficient justification. "There exist no rights to educate. I do not recognize it. No where and never have I N471 THE KEY. 1 920 the young generation recognized, nor will recognize it, that is why they are always in revolt against the compulsion of educationf' After this he an- alyzed his idea, and he found that regulations of popular instruction pro- posed in the project represented a drawback to the existence and expansion of free education. In the spring of 1862 Tolstoy felt exhausted by his labor as a teacher, editor, mediator, and many other occupations to which, with his impul- sive nature, he devoted himself always so whole-heartedly. After 1862, Tolstoy was inspired by the teachings of Christianity, and he wrote many books on this subject. His idea about Christianity is shown by the following quotations: "Christianity is great in the very fact that it was not invented by Christ, but it is an eternal law which humanity obeyed long before this law was formulated, which it always will obey and which it obeys now in the person of those who neither know nor wish to know Chris- tianity. The difference consists only in this, that for those who know the idea of Christianity, life is full of stimulus and joy." 1 "The Christian life consists not in obeying commandments, nor even' in following its teachings, but in the movement toward perfection, toward a cleaner and clearer understanding of this perfection and an ever nearer ap- proach to it. The strength of the Christian's life consists not in any definite degree of perfection fall degrees are equal because the road is endlessj, but in the acceleration of the movement, the swifter the movement, the more power- ful the life. This idea of life gives especial delight, when it is shared with all men though they stand on the most varied degrees, and not dividing them as the evil-doer does. The murdered on the cross and Zaccheus live more Christian lives than the Apostles." Tolstoy is called an artist of humanity, a philosopher, psychologist, soc- iologist, and a teacher of Christianity. In 1910 he left his home secretly with a desire to live alone, but on the journey he was taken ill and was forced to stop off at a little railroad sta- tion. He desired death, for it was a solemn thing. Tolstoy said, "Life is a dream and death is an awakening," the greatest of mysteries of which he had no fear. Eight years have passed since his death, and the civilization which he condemned, whoseveneer he detected, has suffered the fate which he pre- dicted for it. Science and the arts, schools and churches seem bankrupt. The "fruits of civilization" deserve the ridicule which he heaped upon them. One thing the world may learn when it is almost too late: That Tol- stoy was right, and that we who trust in brute strength, in man-made laws, made and broken by man, are wrong. -D.

Indeed it seemed the zero hour of all things melancholy, but never- theless the above quoted adage held true, for somewhere east of Durango in a tumble down shack 'mongst the hills, where the same rain rained and where the same gooey gobs of mud gobbed, shimmered a brightness which betokened the "hint of light" which we have quoted. Around a roaring, crackling fireplace, and what is more to the point, a roaring, crackling cook-stove, were assembled eleven of the donghtiest of the Clan of the Cat, who, undaunted by the elements, had hiked to the wilder- ness in their annual "back to natnrew affair.

The early bird gets the worm, but thru long experience "Pop" has learn- ed that the still earlier bird gets the bird, and to prove it we were awakened in the chilly dawn by two sharp cracks of a riiie. Peering out of the win- dow, we discovered Victor come swinging down the road, rifle over his shoul- der with two chippies slung over the end of the barrel. From cook, K'Pop" had become provendor. Hastily dressing, that is, quickly drawing on our shoes, we rushed dow11 to see the trophies, found a tire going, a new table made, and the place looking spick and span. Truly "Pop" is worthy of his sobriquet. XN'ell, we breakfasted, swung a wicked axe, wielded a dirty dish- cloth, snapped a couple of pictures and then drew lots to discover our cooks for the noon meal. NYhile the cooks began preparing, the rest hoofed it to Durango. Coming around the bend of the road, their ears were greeted by jingling, jangling jazz. Prof. Arends was leading a small procession in sin- gle file, blaring away on his trombone. He and his cohorts were immediate- ly welcomed with a shower of oatcn cakes aimed only too well. The weaker brothers, who came via the choo-choo route were then relieved of their luggage and led by the two old men and the boy, Mencer, they tacked thru Field and mea- dow to avoid the still gobbish mud. and arrived in time for the steak and- lyonnaise. In the afternoon the camera league came into full force. The clicking shutters reminded one of the crickets in springtime. Honest jawn DeBerg, Richards, Frog, and Otto then disappeared indoors and the aroma from fry- ing pan and kettle soon hlled the air. But disappointment of disappoint- ments, the star meal of the day proved to be a FIHSCO due to the honest one's cooking. Those fried potatoes of jawn's-well, more about them later. I don't think any of the sixteen will ever forget the evening's fun that followed, and we certainly missed the Redhead, who was hurling the spher- oid in Texas, and Buck whose duties kept him away. It would take a vol- ume to set before you all the happenings, and so I'll just touch the high 11521 U0fD UofD'1"' -,r ': gf. - THE KEY. 1920 Y.......U ofD - L U0f1 spots. "Pop" was wound up, so were Mence, Hook, "Bess," Arends and the rest. l The music, which must at least have sounded harmonious when soft- ened by distance, included everything from "Sweet Adeline" to the one about the farmer who lived by the creek, and Christopher Columbus. The terpsi- chorean antics of the Rev. Arends, who frisked about as the friskiest of spring lambs, brought forth the plaudits of all. ,lawn DeBerg told the one about "The Latest Out," and every second of those speeding hours was punc- tuated by mirth. However, all good things must end, and while Baker, Rosy, Arends, and LeRoy stayed with the pasteboards the rest climbed up into the loft, It was then that Frog passed around the dessert. Things were get- ting nice and quiet, when Hook arose to get a drink. Unthinkingly he threw the dregs of the creek water through a crack in the floor. Howls arose from below. The deep bass of Felix and the surprised squeal from Lee pro- claimed that all was not well, but how should Hook know that the two were directly beneath the crack wherein the water flowed,-we ask you how? Anyway the battle was on, and between deluges of water, DeBerg's ques- tionable potatoes and dire threats the cabin was soon in an uproar. Then affection moist and audible was shown by "Pop" and Hook for Arends, who reciprocated in kind. Finally disorder was quelled, interrupted only by the night walking of our "Tillie" Morning came, and with it thoughts of the jaunt home. Blankets were rolled, the shack was cleaned, a supply of wood brought in and then, after a feast of everything that was left, the rice pudding included, we sorrowfully started the journey home. I use sorrowfully advisedly, for if ever a bunch had a howling, successful, rig-snorting time, we had, and the home-coming brought with it the realization to many of us that it was the last time we should accompany the bunch on our so-called annual "prowl"g and-to the rest that next year's would find the faces of the aforementioned missing. The hike shall always be remembered, and we can only console ourselves in the thought that- Oft in the stilly night, Ere slumber's chain hath bound us, Fond memory will bring the light Of other days around us. f.

Beneath her hat glowed wealth Of beauty and rustic health. Falling, she wrought with a merry glee As if a mock bird echoed from his tree.

Have you ever stopped to consider what a large part some people's feet play in their make-up and activities?

Fortunately for us all, this is only a picture. 11731 'THE KEYQ1920 UofD UNIVERSITY INN CONFECTIONERY Students' Lunch Counter Ye?,.-x fir nm Q7 4f5E? 4 ik 'xfirx Also BAKERY GOODS.

We can -but hope that these pages have accomplished the purpose for which they were intend- ed, and that they will be cherished as mementos of the year that is past. It remains for the Editor to acknowledge the services of those who have helped to make this volume a success: A To the entire staff, whose assistance has made the work of editing the Annual a pleasure rather than a duty. Particularly to the Business Manager, whose work in gathering advertisements has made the publication possible financially in spite of the in- flated prices of material and labor. Also to the Literary'Editor, Mr. Paul Grieder, who devoted much time to the correction of manuscripts and proofs. - r To Elmer Loemker and Francisco Bas, who provided the wood cuts and pen drawings used. p To all contributors of articles and- material. Only through the publication of such articles can an Annual become truly represen- tative of the entire school. A To the jahn 81 Ollier Engraving Co., who- prepared the en- gravings promptly without sacrifice to quality. To the Telegraph-Herald Co., who had charge of the printing and binding of the book, and whose workmanship speaks for itself. Finally, to the merchants and business men of Dubuque, whose willingness to advertise in these pages shows that, with few excep- tions, they are interested in our institution and are solicitous of its welfare and success.
