Dnarph AVhen James Joseph Trickey was buried in the cemetery at Iowa Falls, the final chapter was written in the life of one who was a real man among men. It is difficult to describe adequately the imprint of this one life upon the lives of the under- graduates and alumni of the University of Iowa. " Jim " gave the best that was in him to his school, whether in the Young Men ' s Christian Association, the classroom, or on the gridiron. Trickey was a real man; he had real character; he possessed real friendships; he had real courage; he was real in every sense of the word. In every branch of life, Trickey showed genuine manhood. When the Iowa team left the gymnasium for the Indiana game, Coach Hawley left this parting word: " Men, whenever you feel you are all in, that you have given all you ' ve got, and can go no further, look over the line at old Jim Trickey, a man who never has and never will quit, and I believe it wiH encourage you. " It was this indomitable, heroic spirit which made it possible for Trickey to work his way through college and yet devote the long hours to football necessary to training on the squad for four years. At the same time, Trickey never neglected his spiritual development, and he found time to enter every wholesome activity. The students ' recognition of his sterling character was shown in his unanimous election as president of the Senior Class. The Iowa River, which passes Trickey ' s grave at Iowa Falls, carries this message down to Iowa field, the gridiron where his spirit will always remain: " ' Jim ' Trickey was a real man among men, and he lives as an inspiration to the men of Iowa for ever. " 57 1915

fraternity tried to outdo every other one in decorating. Perhaps the most noticeable success was achieved by the Nu Sigma Nus. They had erected a huge " I " on their front porch and had it blocked out with electric lights, making a splendid showing in the evening. The girls were not to be outdone either, and so on several of their houses they had stretched huge banners bearing characteristic mottoes. As an aid to alumni and visiting guests the old union rooms were fitted up for their headquarters and a general information bureau. Cadets acted as guides, showing the guests places of interest around Iowa City and the University. The number of alumni who registered was a splendid showing for the loyalty of the Old Grads to their Alma Mater. About seven hundred names appeared on the roll of honor kept at the headquarters. Signs had been put up in front of all the buildings telling what important things were found in each one and the engineers, believing in " See America First, " had established a red ball route through their buildings. During the day the Hawkeye staff had a table reserved in the Union headquarters, where subscriptions for the 1915 Hawkeye were received from alumni. It was impossible to estimate the number of people here until time for the game Saturday afternoon. The wooden bleachers on the East side of the field had been extended and tem- porary ones erected at the end in order to accommodate the immense throng. Ames had sent a large representation for whom Mr. Kellogg reserved a large share of the east bleachers. Never before had such a crowd witnessed a game on Iowa Field. Before the game, the Freshmen put on a pageant. Each college had a float representing their own college and characteristics of their work. Not only the Freshie men but also the Freshie women took part, the L. A.s marching in a body and the two Freshie law girls playing a prominent part in the law float. At 2.30 the Iowa team ran on the field, followed a few minutes later by the Ames team. From the time of their appearance until the end of the game, when the score stood 45 to 7 in favor of Iowa, there was a continual uproar of rooting both on the side of Ames and on the Iowa side. As a fitting close to such a day, the usual bonfire was held down near the machine shops and a " Varsity Val de Vire " was staged by the University talent at the Englert Theater. On the next few days the Alumni gradually dispersed, and the University settled down to the usual routine. But the Alumni carried away with them memories that will cheer them many times, and the students received an uplift and inspiration which will make the 1913 Home-coming an event long to be remembered. Another strong evidence of the interest of Alumni is noted in the banquets held during the holidays, known as " Reunion Fortnight. " In order to make preparations for these a mass meeting was held the week before vacation where each county in the State was represented. An organizer was selected from each county whose duty it was to take charge of the banquet. Close to twenty rousing meetings were held in different counties of the State. A notable feature of the two weeks was the increased number of gatherings where Iowa Spirit had never before been much in evidence. Wherever the banquets or receptions were held they were a marked success, and many had the advantage of having the moving pictures of the Uni- versity at their meetings. Besides the movies several sets of slides had been sent out by the Alumni Association and prominent university men were also called upon to deliver speeches at various places. The Glee Club was present at some of these banquets. Each meeting was not only characterized by reminiscences but also by boosting for Old Gold. Many High School Seniors were present and heard of the excellent qualities of Iowa. Over 1,000 people attended the S. U. I. banquets and 20,000 saw the moving pictures and heard the Glee Club. Prominent among the banquets and receptions were those at Dubuque, Sioux City, Daven- port and Burlington. 56 1915 =

A. Chester A. Corey was one of the most brilliant alumni of the State University of Iowa, standing at the head of every line of work he undertook, and graduating from high school, col- legiate and law departments with highest honors. Besides winning distinction as a debater, he won second place for the State University in the contest of the Northern Oratorical League in 1912. He was one of the five honor graduates of the Law College in 1913. Mr. Corey was a man with exceptionally high ideals, and that he lived them was evidenced by the many tributes and eulogies paid him on every hand when the news of his sudden death became known to his friends. He was a good example of a clean, moral manhood, possessing many of the characteristics which brought to him an enviable reputation. Had Mr. Corey lived he undoubtedly would have had a career of usefulness equaled by few, for he combined natural ability with long and thorough educational training. Corey represented the type of students who are ambitious, who constantly strove onward and upward, who do things, who are public-spirited, who love their alma mater, and who are pointed out as leaders. He gave every indication of filling the same place in the great outside world that he held in the university world, and his sudden death ended a life full of possible service to his fellow men. 58 1915
