TEN YEARS HAVE PASSED: a decade of steady progress toward the realization of a dream, the fulfillment of an ideal. At this point in our development, we pause for a backward glance at things accomplished and for a vision of things to be achieved. We. the Editors of the Ibis for 1936. have striven to record something of this evolution and growth: to present the story of the metamorphosis of a small college into the future great Pan-American University of America: a link between two cultures: a span across two continents.

TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI, to those members of the early faculty, to the first Board of Regents, to those pioneer students, and to those friends who have made possible the growth and development of the University during the past ten years: to its courageous past that dared to lay a foundation of culture on the edge of a frontier, to its progress through ten difficult years, and to the realization of a great and auspicious to-morrow we dedicate the Ibis for 1936.☆

if When you arc graduated, the University will be just ten years old. In the history of the institution these first ten years will no doubt be spoken of as pioneering years devoted to the work of establishing a university in this territory. You have had a part in this pioneer work.
★ Some later classes no doubt will have the advantage of greater equipment and material resources, but there are also advantages in pioneering. You and your predecessors and colleagues have built and established with the University many of its codes, traditions, institutions, and methods. I hope that the strength and independence of character and judgment which you have developed in this pioneer work will more than make up for the lack of material resources which we would have liked to place at your disposal.
if We wish for you great success in carrying out all of your high resolves and purposes.

Out of the roar of a JjSfcJ T hurricane it was born.
3 And as the devastating
wind-ball twistednorth-5 ward, the papers carried
the brief but sufficient statement: "The University of Miami will open as planned."
The University was conceived during those exhilarating, pipe-dream days of the late lamented boom. Things were done in a grand and sumptuous manner in that get-rich-quick time, and the University was to throw open its doors with some ten million dollars in endowments behind it. The people of Miami, and especially of Coral Gables, had rallied behind the proposed University, and contributions were abounding. It was quite the thing to give half a million or so to tin institution that was to do so much to transform pioneering Miami into a cultural nuc teus. Parties and concerts and rallies were held, and the money-flushed populace was generous. It is not surprising to note the enthusiasm and lightheartedness of the founders in those days.
Southern Florida has long been vaunted as one of the last remaining frontiers of the United States. In those exciting boom days. Miami must have been the twentieth-century equivalent of a mushroom mining town of the forty-nine era. Every one was crazed with the thought of more-money and plans for the erection of bigger and better buildings. The unfinished sky-scrapers, apartment houses, and hotels which were left stranded after the boom tidal wave had subsided stand, jagged upon our skyline, as mute testimony of the brain fever that ravaged this section of the country.
Naturally, in those fast days, the conception of culture was badly neglected, and it was only in a comparatively few. far-sighted, and wise civic leaders that the idea that a univer-
sity could give this community life a deeper meaning was nurtured.
Those hardy souls fought great opposition. "Miami is essentially a sport town, a vacation center.” people scoffed. "The climate is more conducive to basking in the sun than to studying and scholarship.” But pioneernig skin is tough, and these men and women, with their ideal, fought on.
It was in 1925. at the height of the building prosperity, that the University passed from a talking stage and was placed in the hands of a committee. A charter was obtained.
In 1926 things began to move. A Board of Regents was created. It was composed of outstanding attorneys, authors, artists, jour naiists. musicians, bankers, economists, contractors. agriculturists, and financiers. The men and women who composed the first Board of Regents deserve mention here for their fortitude and vision. They were: Judge William E. Walsh. Dr. Ruth Bryan Owen. Crate D. Bowen. Frederick Zeigcn. Thomas J. Pancoast. George Merrick. Clayton Sedgwick Cooper. Mitchell D. Price. Frank B. Shutts. James M. Cox. Bertha Foster. Victor Hope. Henry S. Hubbell. Telfair Knight. Burdetter G. Lewis. John B. Orr. J. C. Penney. Charles F. Baldwin. Edgar P. Fripp. Vance W. Helm. Hamilton Michelson. and Joseph H. Adams.
Then it passed from the committee stage to the action stage. On a hundred and sixty acre site, ground was broken for the administration building January 14. 1956. On February 4. the corner stone was laid with impressive ceremony. A crowd of 7.000 people assembled for this momentous instance.THE FIRST TEN YEARS of A U N I V E R S I T Y
Judge William E. Walsh, member of the Board of Regents, faced the future:
"Hard upon the heels of a retreating wilderness we are today planting the institution of learning, an event which will loom large a hundred years hence, when other things you and I have done will be forgotten."
Into this high resolve, extravagant plans, and great dreams whirled the intruder from the southern seas. Upon the heels of the devastating winds came the pricking of the boom bubble with tlx subsequent depression that turned rich men into poor ones — and rich schools into poor schools.
The story of the next ten years is not to be obscured in secret shame. It should be exalted with pride of achievement. The tale of how the leaders of our school, greatly handicapped by general lack of money and by deflated promises and pledges which could no longer be fulfilled, dug in and nursed the baby university on its way amidst the greatest of adversities, and the memory of how these same leaders clung tenaciously to their high purposes in the face of the lashing of the worst depression our country has ever known, cannot but excite with pride those who turn, now. and pause to look back over those first ten years. It is a story of courage and determination in the face of discouragement and difficulties that would have floored lesser men.
Facing the fact, realistically, that endow ments had vanished into thin air. the heads of the school abandoned temporarily the site originally projected for the University and moved into the Anastasia Hotel. The building. at that time, was nothing but an incom-pleted skeleton, and the school opening a bare six weeks off! Hordes of workmen and carpenters were turned loose. I hey fell over one another in their frantic attempt to whip things into shape for the seven hundred students who were waiting opportunity for en-
trance at the beginning of the school year.
The beat of the hammer and the hum of the saw were still echoing down the halls when classes began in October. 1926. The seven hundred students represented 14 states. Seventy per cent, were from Florida, sixty per cent, from Miami. Four hundred were enrolled in the School of Music, two hundred and fifty in the School of Liberal Arts, and fifty were freshmen in the School of Law. The faculty of all schools aggregated sixty.
Those who were present at the birth year of our school look back now in half -humorous recollection upon the trials and hurdles that confronted them. The side walks were not yet laid, and the patio became a slushy sea of mud after each rain. The school had less than one-half of the equipment it now possesses.
Soon, however, things were functioning more or less smoothly. On October 19th. the first social function of the school was held with the regents as hosts at a reception given in the Coral Gables Country Club for the faculty and the students. The football team, which had been quickly whipped into shape by H. B. Buck, then coach, was on its way to an undefeated season. The Footballers had been spontaneously and defiantly dubbed ■■Hurricanes." The Student Council had been formed and had passed its first law. a ruling prohibiting students from smoking in the corridors. On November 4th. the first University section appeared in the Riviera. This was the grandfather of the Miami Hurricane. On November 3rd Dr. Ashe, who had been executive secretary, was unanimously chosen President of the University of Miami. He has filled this office with distinction and dignity. Fraternities were established. The University was finding difficulty in locating living quarters and work for students. In those early days, the upperclassmen were greatly troubledTHE FIRST TEN YEARS of A UNIVERSITY
by the Rats. On October 24th. indignant sophomores, juniors, and seniors met en masse to take up tin problem of the obnoxious freshmen. They drew up a list of restrictions and "musts." sticking green dinks on the frerhmen's heads and seizing paddles in their own hands, determined to show the Rats who owned the school. On October 30. the theme song. "Hail to the Spirit of Miami U" was introduced in assembly by the orchestra.
It was out of this rather chaotic, confused, hectic, but determined first year that the University evolved. It must be a hardy school with a destiny that could survive, in its infancy. the blow of a hurricane and the crush of a nation-wide depression.
The rest of the story is one of a steady but certain development, the creation of tradition and conventions, the introduction of new courses and feature that make this University distinctive among the colleges of the country. It has been a steady, uphill fight. But it is rather obvious reasoning that to achieve height and distinction, one must strive uphill.
The personality of a university is a fabric woven out of many threads through many years. In 1927. for instance, was established the tradition of Junior Proms. On the evening of May 7 it was held at the Miami Bilt-more with 500 guests attending. In 1928 Latin American students were first brought here on the scholarship exchange plan. In 1926 the Symphony orchestra, under Arnold Volpe. was organized. In 1930 the symphonic band was founded under the direction of Walter Sheaffer. May 23. 1928 saw the first Field Day at the University. In October of the same year, the first marine zoology class was formed. In 1926 the theatrical department was launched on its distinguished career by one major production.
So. too. were founded the Winter Institute of Literature, bringing, as it does, outstanding literary figures of the country: the Pan American Forum, encouraging, as it does, the free discussion and the more complete understanding among the Latin American countries: and the recently reorganized student chorus. These were varied threads out of which the personality of our school has been woven.
Gradually the University has developed into a strong cultural force in the community. It is fast marching toward its place as a Pan-American University. Under progressive and intelligent administration that has conducted such experiments as the quarterly system, and concentrated courses, it is moving toward assuming its place as one of the outstanding universities of this section of the country.
Ten years is not a long time. Much water has flowed under many bridges in that time, it is true. It is only a breath compared with the life span of most of the universities of our country. Tradition and purpose are not yet cemented. In the finest sense of the word we students today are still pioneers. It is within our hands to aid in the molding of the destiny of our school. It is within our power to vindicate the shrewd foresight and courage of those who founded this institution.
On October 13. 1926. there appeared an editorial in the Miami Daily News:
"During the next ten years the soul of the University will be formed, the tradition will be made, and the dominant spirit and outlook of the institution will take on a new aspect. —These years will determine the future of the University.”
And so. from tlx height of our ten years, we look backwards, note what strides we have taken, inhale a deep breath, and turn determined faces toward a distant horizon.★ As president of the student body for the past year and a member of the Graduating Class of 1936. I wish to extend to the faculty and to the student body this farewell message. It is a message of appreciation and gratitude for the inspiration that we have derived from the University, both by instruction and by example. But more than that it is a message of loyalty: a promise that by our lives in the community we shall endeavor to reflect by word and reputation that for which our University stands.
PRESIDENT OP THE STUDENT BODYCollege or Libera 1 Arts
SlNCF. THE FOUNDING of (he University of Miami in 1926. the central unit of the whole University, the College of Liberal Arts, under the able and progressive guidance of Dean Henry S. West, has expanded steadily. Nearly every year new courses have been added and the scope of the College has been correspondingly widened.
In this, the tenth year, it is possible for a student to make selection from more than triple the number of courses ofTered in the first year. Then tlx College of Liberal Arts consisted of English. Education. History. Dramatics. Psychology. Language. Mathematics. Chemistry, Physics, and Natural Science. Each of these departments offered a limited number of courses. Now the English department alone offers thirty-two courses, among which are Criticism. Contemporary Continental Literature. Shakespeare, and many other special courses, as well as the usual foundation courses in composition and literary history.
One of the features of the school year is the Winter Institute of Literature which has brought to the University many literary personages, including Robert Frost. Padraic and Mary Colum. Carl Sandburg. Zona Gale, Bernard de Voto and Hervey Allen.
Educational courses have been, since tlx school's inception, under the capable supervision of Dean Henry S. West. The work is so arranged and conducted that students are prepared to go directly into teaching positions. Furthermore, graduates who have fulfilled the Florida State requirements are awarded the official State certificate without the requirement of passing the special State teachers' examination. Nearly four-fifths of the teachers holding degrees in Dade County have obtained them at the University of Miami.
The History department has been augmented by the addition of a number of new courses. They include the study of European History. United States History. Latin American History, and a unique course in Florida History.
The Psychology department has grown from two courses to nine. Several of the outstanding activities in this field are the psychological tests beinggiven all pre-medical students, the experiment now being conducted by Dr. Max Meyer with deaf mutes, and the cooperation of this department with the Psychological Association in New York City.
One of tin- most noteworthy successes in the University work has come in the language department, where it is now possible by means of concentrated courses to cover in one college year the work of three years in other universities. The foreign language library now consists of nearly three hundred volumes. A new feature of this department is the presentation of foreign films.
In the field of Mathematics the University offers seven pre-engineering and science courses. University of Miami Mathematics credits arc accepted in many leading Universities all over the country. The department plans to add five courses especially designed for Liberal Arts students.
In the realm of science much has been done in the ten years since the founding of the University. Thirteen courses arc available in the department of Physics alone, while five years of undergraduate Chemistry may be obtained. In the field of Chemistry, one of the outstanding projects has been a soil survey of Dade County. The Natural Science department is the possessor of the University of Miami Herbarium and the Charles T. Simpson Shell collection. In February of this year the University of Miami Science department joined with other scientific colleges and organizations to form the Florida Academy of Sciences. In the past few years one of the most interesting features of the Science department has been the course offered in the spring in Marine Zoology.
The Dramatics department and the University Players, in spite of material handicaps, have made considerable progress since the founding of the University. Whereas one play was given in the course of a year, now the department offers full-length plays in five-week intervals throughout the year.
The division of late afternoon, evening, and Saturday classes was formed primarily for the benefit of instructors in South Florida who wish to continue courses toward an A.B. degree. However, its classes are available to undergraduate students. The regular classes are supplemented by radio talks, prepared by professors of the various departments, and by playlets given by the Dramatics department in the University Classroom of the Air.
The College of Literal Arts has been a moving spirit in the march of progress of these first ten years.School of B iisi ness l elm i nistration
At THE launching of the University back in 1926, the School of Business Administration offered a few fundamental courses in Economics and Government, taught mostly by Dean John Thom Uoldsworth. who previously had been connected with some of the older universities in the North.—Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh. Princeton, in addition to having had several years' practical experience. He thought he knew, therefore, what the business world wanted or needed in the way of training for its younger executives. Through the years the program of the School has been steadily expanded until today it affords the student planning to enter any department of business as broad and thorough preparation as it is possible to obtain anywhere. The staff of instructors teaching economics, accounting, business organization, etc. has been steadily augmented by specialists in different fields. Thus, this year Mr. Leon Henderson, formerly research director for the Russell Sage Foundation, and more recently assistant to General Hugh Johnston of N.R.A. fame, has given courses in advanced economic theory and in government and business. This latter course was supplemented by special lectures given by labor leaders, trade journalists, employers and others. Similarly, specialists in insurance, marketing, advertising and accounting, practical men daily engaged in these business activities, have been brought in to supplement theory with actual practice.
One of the outstanding features of the School's program is the Department of Latin-American Relations, begun under the direction of Dr. Victor A. Belaunde. the distinguished Minister from Peru to several European governments and now Minister to Switzerland, and later continued by his brother. Rafael Belaunde. now Peruvian Minister to Mexico. For the past two years this department has been under the direction of Dr. J. C. Zamora, assisted by Mr. Rafael Belaunde and others, and now is offering some dozen courses in Spanish and English. Under Dr. Zamora there has been established the Latin-American Exchange plan through which some two dozen students from Cuba and other Sranish-speaking countries are enrolled in the University. This exchange plan gives both English-speaking and Latin-American students at the University the opportunity to broaden their cultural and social contacts and experiences in their formative years, and to lay the base of a better understanding among the young men who tomorrow will be the business executives and leaders of their respective countries. Sponsored by this Department also is the Latin-American Forum held annually for some years. Though omitted this year, plans are being made for its continuance.
Recognizing that the world of business and affairs is ever changing. Dean Holds-worth is planning future development for the School. He hopes to continue and expand the exchange of students with Laiin-Amcrica and other countries, and to strengthen the Pan-American Forum. He is considering plans for a Winter Institute of Business. This contemplated institute or forum would bring to the University as lecturers and counsellors many of the leading business executives of the nation, and other leaders in business, government, and world affairs who visit in Miami during the winter months.
Established as one of the University's major departments at the time of its founding. the School of Business Administration has kept, and will continue to keep, pace with the steady, progressive march of the University.ion
HE School of Education offers the degree of Bachelor of Science in Educa-
tion. All those who plan on entering the teaching profession, be it
elementary, junior high, or senior high, enroll in this branch of the University. A special two-year curriculum is also offered that terminates in graduation with the normal certificate. (Licentiate of Instruction). the "L.I. Diploma" of Florida.
The student who takes courses in education, psychology, sociology, including child study, elementary school teaching, adolescent psychology, high school teaching, and the principles of education, obtains a professional training of a finished and rounded nature. Through certain required and selected courses chosen from the other colleges of the University, the student is able to acquire a command of the subjects to be subsequently taught by him in the schools.
The Adult Education division is placed under the direction of the School of Education. Courses offered in this division arc intended primarily to give an opportunity to teachers in active service to revise and extend their professional equipment. These couries are offered late in the afternoon and in the evenings. They arc open to University students who are given full credit for their work in this Division.
Under the deanship of Henry S. West, the school is fortunate in possessing a capable and qualifying faculty.
Each year since the opening of the University in 1926 the work of the School of Education has been given official recognition by the Florida State Department of Education, so that graduates with the University of Miami dcgr:e or certificates have received, without further examination, the Florida Graduate State Teacher's Certificate, and are thereby legally qualified to teach in any of the public schools of the state. Nearly four-fifths of the teachers in Dade county holding degrees today obtained them at the University of Miami.Scl
The conservatory of the University was founded in 192! as the Miami Conservatory. With the opening of the University in 1926 this became the Music School of the University.
Under the guidance of Bertha F:oster. Dean of the School of Music, a decided improvement has been made each year, not only in affording greater opportunities to music students, but also in playing a more important part in the advancement of music culture in Miami. A series of Symphony orchestra and Symphonic band concerts were presented during the past year with many of the world's most distinguished musicians appearing as soloists. The faculty string quartet has been enjoyed by hundreds in a series of Sunday afternoon concerts in Miami homes. Members of the Music School have been prominent in recitals, opera, choir, radio, and instrumental work. A unique woodwind quintet has brought much favorable comment. The new University Chorus has developed admirably under the direction of Edward Clarke. Bands have been formed in public schools under the direction of some of the advanced students and through this activity several Miami school children are becoming fine instrumentalists.
Those who were fortunate enough to attend the concerts presented by the School of Music during the past year will always cherish the memory of the Westminster Chorus. Elman. Grainger. Chasins. Lhcvinne. the Franck. Beethoven, and Brahms symphonies played by the Symphony orchestra under the direction of Dr. Arnold Volpe. and the majestic playing of the Symphonic band under the direction of Walter Sheaffer.
The University of Miami School of Music, during its period of development has been confronted with obstacles which seemed insurmountable, and the fact that it has successfully overcome these difficulties and forged steadily ahead can be attributed to the leadership and faith of Miss Foster. The true value of the activities of the School of Music cannot be summarized here in the praising of its work. If its influence has tended to mould higher ideals and if it has afforded thousands the opportunity for pleasurable enjoyment, its worth will be apparent in its continued edification.j'dW
WITH THE OPENING of the University of Miami in 1926 the School of Law was organized which offered the first professional courses of the University. The first Dean of the Law School was the late Richard Austin Rasco. whose son now occupies that office. Its consistent growth under competent leadership has made it one of the foremost law schools in Florida.
A degree from the University of Miami Law School is recognized and approved by the Supreme Court of Florida. This enables a graduate student to practice anywhere in the state upon presentation of his diploma and eliminates the necessity of a bar examination. The students are required to cover a three years' course by tin case method. In addition to this, there is a weekly moot court held in a downtown courtroom which is presided over by one of the prominent local judges. The law students must participate as jurors, witnesses, prosecuting and defending attorneys. This phase of training is invaluable to the student for it familiarizes him with tin’ procedure of the various courts, giving him the experience necessary to practice law confidently and successfully.
The school teaches the fundamentals of American and English law placing special stress on Supreme Court decisions.
Integrity, honor and the principals of good citizenship are emphasized as being of great importance to the lawyer of today. Living by these standards leads to a high code of ethics which reflects credit not only on the graduate's name and his profession but also on the institution from which he received his degree. The stressing of these ethics in this school is a credit to the University and a tribute to its founders.
The course required of those who have satisfied the pre law requisites in first year are sixteen in number, including Torts. Contracts, and Common Law Pleading. The second year requires eighteen courses, including Bills and Torts, and Evidence. The third year numbers twenty courses among which arc Admiralty and Admiralty Procedure and Constitutional Law. In addition there are two courses in Insurance and Air Law which may be selected.
The success of the Law School is an indication of the part that professional schools will play in the University in the future. Its growth is assured by the progress of the past.THE FACULTY

School of Law of the University has instituted the Moot Court.
Every Monday afternoon finds the students of the Law School assembled in one of the downtown court rooms. One of the local judges presides to give the proceedings a final touch of authenticity. A senior law student takes over the functions of prosecuting attorney, another of defense attorney, while the rest fill the shoes of witnesses and other satellites of the court room. The junior and freshman law students are placed in the jury box or make up the audience.
Out of this raw material a case is synthesized, and the major participants take charge in an atmosphere that simulates the real law court.
The results thus far have been gratifying, and so the Moot Court has become a regular feature of the Law School.

At THE beginning of the season you found yourselves facing an almost im possible schedule. The difficulties were

The beginning was slow, but as the weeks dragged along you found your- selves learning to execute your plays
Jr __________________________successfully. Your small squad re
coach tubas sponded gamely, and at the end you
presented a formidable football team. Your season, as percentages go. was not glorious: but it was a success.
It was a pleasure working with you. We wish you graduating men all had several more years, but all things must end. You have played the game hard and cleanly. It is our hope that you continue to play the game of life in the same manner.
You were in on the beginning. We hope you are as proud of your pioneering as we are proud of you. May you stand by as we endeavour to keep the teams of this institution, which you have started, growing.
DIAF.CTOR OF ATHLETICSTHE 19 5-1956 school year at the University marked the inauguration of a new intramural athletic program. It is the aim of this department to offer a program that will give every student an opportunity to participate in some healthful and recreational activity. The carrying out of this program this year has indicated a widespread and growing interest among the students, and the spirit shown by the various groups and individuals participating is indicative of the demand for intramurals among students other than those who participate on our athletic teams. With a continuation of the present interest and growth, intramurals will be established as a fundamental and integral part of the educational benefits offered students attending the University.
The intramural department greatly appreciates the splendid spirit of cooperation and willingness on the part of the various organizations and student assistants. Helene Couch and Marvin Black, and it is with the keenest interest and anticipation that we look forward to another year.

BEGINNING their first season in the midst of n terrific tropical storm, the gridmen of Miami found they were rightfully nicknamed Hurricanes.
Ten short but eventful years have passed since the first University of Miami football team took to the gridiron in search of glory for their young Alma Mater. Progress has been slow, but at last they are ready for a shot at the big-time. Good football teams are not built in a day, but now the colors Orange, Green, and White are flying high, and before much longer they are destined to be tops.
In the past decade Miami teams have been good, bad and indifferent. This uncertain progress has been due to unhappy experiences in finances for athletics. The hurricane of 1926 turned what was to have been a dream school into an almost disastrous nightmare, but the loyal and fighting administration has carried on under the toughest financial conditions imaginable. The fight has been a winning one, and the future looks bright. From here on the Hurricanes are "ready to go."
Miami's first grid mentor was Cub Buck, a hard-boiled coach of the old school. The footballers this year were all freshmen. They played baby clubs such as Stetson, Rollins, Furman, etc., without tasting defeat.
In 1927, these same gridsters, then sophomores, attempting to play a varsity schedule with this green material, won six out of ten games—an excellent record considering the circumstances.
In '28 a new coach took over the destinies of the still very young institution His name was Rix. a fine gentlemanly coach. He had as his assistant Tom McCann. This year proved to be something of a success, the Hurricanes chalking up seven wins against three defeats.
In '29 the depression hit the whole of the United States and Miami's football team followed suit.
Finances hit such a low ebb in 1930 that the school could not afford to carry on athletics. However. a bunch of loyal downtown business men formed an athletic committee so that Miami could continue football. As head grid mentor they h'red Krnie Brett. Attempting to carry on with no assistants, he failed.
In '31. the committee, now better organized, brought Tom McCann back as head coach, and hired Goldy Goldstein as line coach. This season was totally disastrous, the Orange, Green, and White warriors bowing in defeat seven out of nine times.
The 1932 season saw McCann back with a new line coach in Olin HufT. This year the Hurricanes won five out of nine tries, but brought Miami to the attention of the eastern football world by defeating the Chick-Meehnn-coachod Manhattan club in a New Year’s classic.
in '33 Miami enjoyed the best season in her history. In her regular schedule she went undefeated, only a 0-0 tie with Stetson marring the record. The committee, thinking the team was better than it really was, brought down Rimer Layden's Duquesnc Dukes for the New Year. As a result, after holding them even for three quarters, Miami was snowed under 33-7.
1934 finds the Athletic Committee disbanded, and the destiny of athletics once more back within the school. McCann and Huff are still in the pilot house. This year the team lost three out of eight and tied one for a fair average. The Stetson game ended in a 6-6 tie. Miami lost to Tampa by one point and to Rollins by two touchdowns. This year the strong Bucknell Bisons were brought down on New Years, and Miami suffered a 26-0 defeat.
Now comes '35, the turning point in Miami's football history. Doctor Ashe, realizing the value of a good football team, employed two men who in their first year ignited the spark that will soon put Miami near the top in the football world. Irl Tubbs was appointed head football coach and athletic director, with Pat Boland as line coach and intramural director. These two men, with a new system of play to install and with a small squad of new and unknown material to work with, faced the most difficult schedule ever attempted by a Miami football team. Winning the first, and then losing three straight, the drugstore coaches were having their laugh. Then the schedule called for the Wake Forrest Deacons, one of the strongest teams the Hurricanes hnd ever faced. Miami surprised everyone, even themselves, by stopping them 3-0. From here on, for the first time in her short h'story, Miami looked like a high class football team. They won the remaining three games, one of those being over the large and classy Boston University team. With this sensational ending and these sulendid coaches back, the Hurricanes are ready to attempt a very difficult 1936.
In Miami's short football history, quite a number of outstanding plavers have represented her. here is our choice for the All-time Hurricane team:

STATISTICALLY, Miami’s '35 football season can not be called glorious. With five wins against three losses, the average stands an even 625. The last half of the season was sensational. After losing three straight games the fighting Hurricanes came back to win the last four in a row. two of these being against big-time clubs. This year’s squad was small, both in number and physical make-up. The entire schedule was played with practically 15 men — 60-minute or iron men. they might be called. The team spirit was better than ever before, and undoubtedly will become a tradition.
Out of 18 letter men. eight are lost through graduation, leaving only 10 experienced men to form the nucleus around which to build a team to meet next year's difficult schedule. However, with the material available and the ability of the coaching staff, the '36 Hurricanes should be a smooth-working machine. The '35 season was opened officially on October 12.
Miami 2 — Southeastern Louisiana 0 Played in a drenching rain, making it impossible to attempt anything but straight football, the game was miserable for the players and uninteresting for the spectators. The ball see-sawed back and forth for three quarters, with neither side able to gain an advantage. Early in the fourth quarter Southeastern was pushed back to her goal line by a Miami kick. Here a Louisiana back, attemptingCo-Captain dt t Nat Glogowski. Captain Denny Leonard; Co-Captamdat Whitey Wolcufl
to punt, fumbled. He recovered but was tackled behind his own goal line by Wolcuff and Masterson. giving the Hurricanes two points which proved the margin of victory.
Miami 0 — Georgetown 13
The Tubbsmen next journeyed to Washington for their first adventure in big-time. Outweighed, outnumbered and finally defeated, the boys nevertheless displayed their wares in an admirable way.
During the first period the Miami men pushed the heavier Hoyas all over the field and twice threatened to score. Soon, though, the weight and pounding began to tell. The Georgetown field general chose the right play at the right time, sending one of his scat backs around the weary Hurricane end for 23 yards and a touchdown. This ended the scoring for the first half. Georgetown 7 —Miami 0.
The opening of the second half saw a determined Miami eleven take the field. Receiving the kickoff, they carried the ball. Cook skirting the ends, and Boney pounding the line, to the Hoyas’ 19-yard line. Here the Miami as yet unpolished offense bogged down and the Hurricanes lost their last opportunity to score. Georgetown scored her remaining six points in the last quarter.
Miami 7 — Tampa 13
In her third game, one snaky-hipped, high-stepping lad completely ran Miami off the field. The team from across state called themselves Spartans, but they should have been named Rodiquez.
The Hurricanes received the opening kickoff and on a sustained drive put the ball across Tampa's goal line. Seven points in the first three minutes looked pretty big. but at this time Rodiquez put in an appearance. On the second play lie carried the ball for 40 yards and the score. Tampa failed to convert and Miamistill enjoyed a one point lead. This slim margin was shortlived as Tampa scored again in the second quarter.
Neither side could threaten during the second half. Thus the game ended. Miami suffering her second straight defeat.
Miami 12 —Stetson 13
Against their biller and traditional rivals. the Hurricanes were off to a flying start. Taking the opening kickoff they drove 90 yards to chalk up a lead of six points. AI most before the stands had quieted. Cook entered the game and scampered for the second score. Both goal tries were missed.
Taking the kickoff at the half, the Stetson team drove to the middle of the field, and here with fourth and nine they completed a pass for a touchdown. Miami led 12-6. Wolcuff's brilliant punting forced Stetson back to her 15-yard line. Smith skirted end for 80 yards before he was finally dragged down from behind by Cook and Boney. This put the ball on Miami's four-yard line and in four tries they bucked it over. They kicked the point, and what a big point it turned out to be.
Miami 3 — Wake Forrest 0
Miami came out out for this game with all the squeaky parts oiled and hitting on all eight. The Deacons, who had just defeated George Washington and held North Car olina to two touchdowns, probably were a little cocky. They brought with them a potential All-American in their quarter back.

Late in the last quarter Boney. who had been held out all night because of a bad leg. entered the game. His brilliant plunging and a pass put the ball on the Wake Forrest five-yard line and here Pctrowski's good old right toe split the uprights for the necessary three points and victory.
Miami 29 Rollins 0
f:earing a let-down after the Wake Forrest win. the coaches put on pressure and had the Miami boys in shape. Rollins took the opening kick and on a series of passes and runs carried the ball to the Miami 12-yard line, but here Miami held. Charlie Baker tore the Tar line to shreds, and the now famous Tubbs basketball pass was completed five times. Baker scored twice and Petrowski once during the first half. The conversions were good.
In the second half Miami's scoring was limited to nine points. Captain Denny Leonard intercepted a Rollins pass and. realizing a lifetime ambit ion. ran fora touchdown. Pete Petrowski booted his second field goal in as many games.
Miami 17 — Boston 0
The boys from Boston U. were big. and they ran and blocked hard. The Hurricanes managed to withstand the pummelling in the first half, and in the third quarter Boston began to slow. In the last quarter Miami worked the ball to the Terrier's five-yard line and when they could not gain. Pete kicked the goal, "three in three games.” tieing the all-time record for field

Desperately attempting to score, the Terriers began to fling wild passes all over the field Ott grabbed one of tlie.se and ran it back to score, putting the count at 17-0.
Miami 21 —Oglethorpe B After the strain of three straight victories over large and rough opponents, the Hurricanes faced the Petrels considerably hampered by injuries. There was a decided let down. Miami started off well. Captain Leonard snagging a short pass for the first score. After this the boys seemed to take it easy and during one of the siestas. Oglethorpe scored on a long pass, making the score seven all. In the second half, the Hurricanes snapped out of their coma and scored twice to win the season's final game.

THE COMING YEAR
★ Coaches lrl Tubbs and Pat Boland will send the 1936 Hurricane eleven against some of the leading football teams in the nation next fall. Under the leadership of co-captains Nat Glo-gowski and Nick Wolcuff. the Miamians face strong teams from the North as well as the South. Northern opponents include such squads as Georgetown University. Boston University and the nationally known Bucknell collegiates.
Formidable Southern aggregations already on the Hurricanes '36 schedule are Mercer College and the Mississippi University of Orange Bowl fame.
Despite the fact that the Hurricanes will be meeting some of the "nations great." they have an excellent chance to finish the coming season with a fine record. Playing material is better than it has been in many years, and the spirit shown in spring practice is very encouraging.I RISHMAN Squad. BACK ROW. Ull to tight Catch Courtney Mtnlcy. Maloney. Ricci.

THE Freshmen footballers, under the leadership of Eddie Grac .yk. played two games during the 1935 pigskin season, winning from the Stetson yearlings I 4 to 7. and losing to the Rollins eleven by a 13 to 6 count.
Grac .yk's squad consisted of 44 huskies, the largest roster ever to represent the University of Miami on the yearling gridiron. The outstanding linemen from this group, who are being counted on to make good varsity material in future years, arc: Bolash. Duncan. Hamilton. Monk. Hanley and the Boyles. This group, along with several other line prospects, will report to Coach Boland in the fall with hopes of making the grade in the varsity line. The backfield men who show promise arc: Dunn. Schepis. Sech. Quinn and Dolan. These boys are all hard-driving backs and should make some varsity men step to hold their positions.
The 1935 Baby Hurricanes are a young and inexperienced bunch, but they are having a chance to learn during the spring practice. Coaches I ubbs and Boland are putting them through their paces.
MEXICAN jumping beans and aerial acrobats have nothing on the cheer leaders who led grandstand enthusiasm for Miami's team this season. The united backing they helped put behind the Hurricanes had a lot to do with the success of the 1935 season, which will go down in history as the dawn of a great era for Miami football.
Head Cheer Leader Jimmy Thayer and his three assistants. Jack Burr. Tommy Lee and Lee Huffman, were ready for every game with a series of elaborate stunts. They kept the crowds amused between the halves. Such antics as the donkey race and the complicated ceremony of burying Stetson in effigy will long be remembered by the fans who saw them.
The cheering this year was the best Miami ever has had. These fellows seemed able to keep the crowd yelling for their team, winning or losing, and it was mostly winning.

A DECADE OF BOXING | BILLY TELLS WHY
SELECTING THE CHAMPS DENNY AND TOBY BEST
---- toy IKto lWII V■ =- »
More than 100 boxers have represented the University of Miami in Intercollegiate competition during the past 10 seasons. For a good number of these years Billy Regan has "seen them come and go” in Hurricane fistiana. His nominations for the Hall of
Fistic Fame are:
1 1 5 pounds George Manley '34
1 25 pounds Billy Evanson '32
1 35 pounds "Scotty" McLachlan '38
145 pounds "Toby” Tobias •39
155 pounds Johnny Bates ’33
165 pounds Denny Leonard ’36
1 75 pounds "Whitey" Wolcuff •37
Heavyweight Bill Kimbrough •33
★ Billy Regan, serving as student assistant in boxing for the 1936 Hurricanes, has been a student at the University of Miami for a few years, and boxing is one of his favorite sports.
We always regarded him as one of the finest authorities on the manly art in the school. We were anxious to get his all-time nominations, and a little curious about them too.
Here is the way Billy Regan classifies his nominations:
George Manley was 3 great boxer. He could make the other fellow do the things he wanted him to do.
Billy Evanson did everything right. He was fast and shifty.
"Scotty" McLachlan—a good right hand puncher.
"Toby" Tobias — clever, game, a hard
hitter, and should be rated as an outstanding counter-puncher.
Johnny Bates was undoubtedly a great fighter. He could punch with paralyzing force.
Denny Leonard — the greatest collegiate middleweight that ever laced on a glove. A cool boxer with lethal power in cither hand.
"Whitey” Wolcuff— a good boxer for a big man. He was game and a very fine puncher.
Bill Kimbrough was a great heavyweight. He was big. strong, courageous, and could hit hard.
★ We think Denny Leonard and "Toby” Tobias would beamongour own nominations.
Denny boxes in two different weight classes, the 155 and 165 pound divisions. He fought two college boxers who held coveted championships one. the Southern Conference title, and the other the Eastern Intercollegiate crown. Leonard out-pointed the Conference title-holder, and knocked out the Eastern champion.
Toby is a great little 145 pounder. He bolds decisions over the National and Southern Intercollegiate champions in his division, and is the amateur welterweight champion of Florida. We doubt that this record has ever been equaled in any College ring in the country.
★ If any boxers are entitled to be listed among the all-time greats of Hurricane Fistiana. they are Dennis Leonard of Savannah, and Maurice "Toby' ’ T obiasof New York, called Denny and "Toby."

Miami's 125 pounder, held the more experienced Maryland featherweight to a draw. Then Scotty McLach-lan and 1'oby Tobias scored successive wins for the Hurricanes by virtue of their splendid victories over Schwartz and Capt. Webb, respectively. Leonard and Wolcuff also defeated their Eastern
rivals to give Miami the margin of victory.
Columbus 5 — Miami 3
Whitey Wolcuff. Miami heavyweight, got up off the floor, after being down twice, to stop Wolfe of Columbus University. in the final match between the two schools. But Wolcuff s victory was in vain, for in the earlier bouts the battling Columbus mittmen had amassed a lead that could not be erased by Whitey's performance. The score was 5 to 3 in favor of the Washington lads. The Columbus scrappers took a commanding 3 to 0 lead as they turned backBOXING

The Miamians were defeated in these two meets by a more experienced Franklin and Marshall College squad. 25 to 8: and then tasted defeat from Ohio State Teachers College after a gruelling match.
The team consisted of Jimmy Abras. Charles Girtman. George Lowd. Capt. Eggie Sudlow. Henry Sudlow. Johnny Scch. Charles Shinn, and Dave James. Evan Lindstrom. former Miami star, coached the wrestlers.
The outstanding wrestler on this years team was the 1 15 pound sensation. Jimmy Abras. Besides remaining undefeated in
lindstrom tlx two dual meets. Jimmy reached great heights by advancing to the finals in the national A.A.U. meet held in Chicago.
Abras and Sudlow are the only grapplers who will be lost through graduation and the prospects for a fine mat team in 1937 arc exceedingly bright. A schedule is being planned that will enable the team to face some of the outstanding college clubs in the nation.LEFT TO RIGHT: Bclu. J. Hendrix. Capt. Mulloy. A Hendrix. Tarplcy. Mgr. Black.
THE 1936 tennis team is the finest the University of Miami has ever had and one of the finest in all intercollegiate history. Its members have made wonderful records during the past year and especially in the 1936 spring tournaments.
Every nationally known player who has entered a tournament in which the Hurricane players participated has been defeated by one of them. These players include Wilmer Allison. National champion and No. I player in U.S.: Bryan “Bitsy” Grant. National Clay Court champion and No. 3 player: J. Gilbert Hall. No. 8 in America: Hal Surface, No. 12: Charles Harris. No. 17: Martin Buxby. No. 19: Barney Welsh, National Public Parks champion: Ricardo Morales, champion of Cuba: Marcel Rainviiie, champion of Canada, and others.
Gardner Mulloy. the lean panther, is playing his third year on the team. He is winner of the Cuban International Championship in Havana, by defeating Morales. Harris, and Hendrix: victor over Hall and Surface at Orlando: semifinalist in the Eastern Intercollegiate last year. Gar is a splendid player with ablistering forehand, fine serve and smash, steady backhand and volley, and a slow phlegmatic manner on the court. He is a distinct threat in the National Intercollegiate this year.
Arthur Hendrix. Sugar Bowl champion by victories over Allison. Hall and Welch, defeated Grant and Mulloy in the Miami Biltmore tournament, and is winner of the Southern Florida title by beating Mulloy and Buxby. This is his first year under the orange, green and white. Equipped with a fine collection of strokes, with the exception of a poor forehand, he and Mulloy are the big guns of the team.
Hendrix and Mulloy have been highly successful on a doubles team. To date, in six weeks, they won four doubles titles, the Dixie championship, the Cuban International Championship, the Southern Florida, and the Surf Club Invitation. They comprise probably the most formidable team in the South today.
Melvin Tarpley. possessing what Wilmer Allison once styled, "the most perfect game in the world." has been out of competition for three years. He is coming back fast now and will be a mighty cog in the tennis machine.
John Hendrix has potentialities to become one of the country's finest players. With a free, easy style and a splendid competitive spirit, he needs only experience and seasoning to be one of the best.
Jack Behr was one of the ranking Junior players of the East last year. Both in appearance and manner on the court, he resembles Sidney Wood, the Davis Cup player. With a little more fire and a little harder hitting. Jackie would be vastly improved.

The team was capably coached by two of the leading swimming instructors in the country, namely: "Pop" Burr and Steve Forsythe.

Despite the fact that the golfers finished the present season without garnering a victory, their prospects for a good golf team in 1937 are very bright. Next year the squad will probably consist of an all veteran group built around the 1936 team.

Men s Intramural Athletics At the beginning this tenth anniversary year, the Intramural department was completely reorganized. Assistant coach Patrick Boland was placed in charge of all intramural sport activities. Then an Intramural board was created, to be composed of Mr. Boland. Mr. Tubbs and Mr. Lindstrom. Another step taken in the reorganization was the separation of tin fraternities and the independents into separate leagues. The six fraternities arc represented in the former, while the independent league includes all other campus organizations participating in Intramural athletics.
With the spacious court in the patio for volleyball and basketball and the varsity field for touchball and the high arched handball courts, the University has ample playing facilities for those who wish to compete in athletic events. Throughout the program, students have officiated in nearly all contests. This practice offers training for students in this field.
Director Boland has compiled an Intramural Bulletin for the aid of athletic managers and students. All contests were played under National Intercollegiate rules.
Women's Intramural Athletics It is obvious to all interested in the University that a new step has been taken in the furthering of athletics for women students on the campus. This has been due almost entirely to the efforts of the new Intramural director. Under Mr. Boland the girls have found a stronger incentive for participating in intramural events through the new system of keener competition and rivalry.
It is needless to say that a growing interest of the girls in sports will aid in the better development of the University. With our climate in which sports are conducted all year round, there is no doubt that in a short while our school will be noted for its physical as well as cultural and educational advantages.
The Women’s Athletic Council sponsors the following cs’ents for girls: tennis, volleyball. basketball, bowling, swimming, ping pong, golf and diamond ball.

Eileen Pharmer. Betty Lou Shafer. Gertrude Thompson and Jeanne Thurtle, organized the Lambda Phi Sorority on January 22. 1927. They selected coral and blue as their colors and the coral vine as their flower. From that time until the present. Lambda Phi has stood high in scholarship, athletics and social activities. During the first year of its functioning a Lambda Phi was chosen to represent the University at the State YAV.C.A. Conference and in 19 3 the University delegate to the Presidents' Conference of Southern Colleges was also a Lambda Phi. Aside from the many important class offices which the sorority has held each year, two of its members have been Presidents of the Student Body, one Vice President, and one Secretary-Treasurer.
The sorority has won many trophies for tennis, captain-ball, volley ball, diamond ball and golf, always participating in every event. For eight years a Lambda Phi has led the Junior Prom and for five out of six years has won the Queen of Clubs cup.
Among the social entertainments of the year Lambda Phi gives an Annual Autumn Formal for the Student Body, holds Open House during the Christmas Season and later presents a Shipwreck Dance.oigm a

THE fifth annual meeting of the Winter Institute of Literature, outstanding cultural offering of the University of Miami, met with gratifying success in the winter term of 1936.
The purpose of the Winter Institute is to present to people who are interested in literature both the authors who are making literature today. and those people who are well-informed on the makers of literature of another day. All speakers who appear are authorities on their subjects.
The Institute is primarily for the benefit of the student, who may receive credit for regular attendance of the session. It is in addition open to visitors who may be interested in literature. The course may be regarded as a forum as well as a series of lectures, so informal is the contact between speaker and audience.
This year's lecturers represented the extremes in geographical location as well as philosophical conceptions.
Robert Frost, the foremost American poet of today, and one of the most famous, came here on leave of absence from Amherst college, where he is Simpson professor of literature. He left Miami to deliver the Charles Eliot Norton lectures at Harvard University. This is the first time that honor has been bestowed upon 3n American. Robert Frost is the author of five volumes of poetry, from which he read at various times during his talks. His was the contribution of the American mind of an American poet dealing in American poetry.
In startling contrast was Dhan Gopal Mukcr-ji. the very breath of the Eastern civilization. Mr. Mukerji was born near Calcutta, of Brahmin parentage. He has written many books

dealing with the life in India, among them being Gay-neck, the Newberry prize book of 1927. As a lecturer his charm is unsurpassable. His meditation of the East is opposite to the do it' of the West.
Bernard De Voto. recently made Editor of the "Easy Chair” of Harper’s Magazine, is an authority on the history of the American frontier and on crank religions. He has published many novels and various historical texts. He leftWINTER INSTITUTE OF I.ITERATUR E
Harvard, on whose faculty he is a lecturer, to be present at the Winter Institute for his five lectures. Mr. De Voto is another representative of tin American mind.
Mary Colum ( Mrs. Padraic Colum) is among the outstanding literary critics of today. She is literary editor of the Forum Magazine, and regular contributor to the SeiV Statesman. Scribners's. The Yale Review. Saturday Review of Literature. The Sation and the Sew Republic. She is on the Board of judges for the Pulitzer Prize Awards in drama for 1936. It was the University of Miami's privilege to have Mrs. Colum on its faculty for the Winter term as associate professor of continental literature.
Padraic Colum. a native of Ireland, has lived in America for several years. He is known in the field of letters not only as a poet, but also as a playwright, a writer of tales for young people, and a member of tlte group of men who created the Irish National Theatre, later known as the Abbey Theatre. Quiet wisdom characterizes him. Mr. Colum was included on the faculty of the University of Miami for the Winter Term as professor of Anglo-Irish literature.
Hervey Allen is poet, novelist, biographer. In biography Mr. Allen is the author of I sea f el. a scholarly study of Edgar Allan Poe. His later work. Anthony Adverse, has been, since its publication. a best seller both in the United States and Europe, and is a distinguished contribution to the literature of the world.
The Winter Institute of Literature was or ganized in 1932 under the direction of Dr.
Orton Lowe under whose guidance it has remained for the years that followed.
At the first session of the Institute appeared Edward Davison. British poet, critic and lecturer: Percival Wilde, playwright and critic: Zona Gale, distinguished novelist, dramatist, and journalist: Padraic Colum. who has appeared at many sessions of the Institute: Vachel Lindrey had been engaged, but died a month before: he was replaced by Carl Sandburg, poet, biographer, and journalist.
The second session included such people as Sylvanus Morley. archeologist, author and lecturer: Jessie Rittenhouse Scollard. poet and anthologist: Eunice Tietjens. poet and writer of children's books: Walter Pritchard Eaton, dramatic critic and essayist, now professor of drama at Yale.
F:or the third session the new lecturers were Hervey Allen: Marjory Stoneman Douglas, short story writer and journalists: Cloyd Head. American playwright, who was lecturer on dramatics at the University in the year of 1935: and Virgil Barker. American art critic.
During the fourth session the Institute was fortunate in having Robert Frost: Whit Burnett, short story writer and editor of Story magazine: and William McFee. novelist and critic.
With the continued support and interest of the students the Institute will become a permanent attraction of the University of Miami which may claim as its lecturers the foremost contemporary writers and authorities in the field of literature.nl r

Lhevinne. and Chasins would not be an easy one. He knew that patient, understanding, able leadership would be necessary in order to guide a student orchestra successfully through a year of the greatest of music. Students of the University and tlx- people of Greater Miami know that Dr. Volpe's efforts were not in vain, and in the not too distant future when the University of Miami Symphony orclx'Stra will have attained national recognition. the "Little conductor" will look back on this season with a great deal of pride, knowing that tlx- orchestra's most ambitious work was admirably performed during this year. The hours of patient rehearsing will be forgotten by tlx- man whose sole thought has been for the betterment of the student Symphony orchestra.

Mr. Chasins was so impressed with the orchestra that he arranged a concert at the Hollywood Beach Hotel for the establishing of an endowment fund to aid the orchestra. The artist assured the financial success of the concert by donating his services as soloist.
DR ARNOLD VOLPCs
A FEW years AGO Walter Sheaffer presented a plan to the University officials. He believed, if he were allowed to carry out his own plans as to instrumentation and personnel, he could build a band that would be one of the greatest in college circles. His plan was sanctioned and lie immediately interested many outstanding young musicians in the University of Miami. Pupils of Symphony men were favored, and one of the first boys to forsake the March snows of Detroit was Charles Stallman. He returned to Detroit in June with Don Quixotic tales about Miami and the University, and the result was that fourteen boys migrated south the next winter. Young local musicians were quick to grasp the opportunity of playing under the baton of Mr. Sheaffer. and a group of Miamians combined with the Detroiters in forming what is now rated not only one of the greatest college bands in America, but which is proclaimed one of the world’s outstanding concert organizations. The band numbers 70 at the present time with 16 States represented.

The praise of such famous musicians as Percy Grainger. Arthur Pryor. Abram Chasins. and the press, is proof that Walter Sheaffer's plan has been highly successful.
"This band it what many of in hat been longing tar for years: a band with all the technical skill of a veteran professional band plus that enthusiasm, elasticity, and freshness of outlook that it possible only in youth. Miami has tound reason to be proud of it great conductor and his magnificent band—orjf of the world's loveliest."—PERCY GRAINGER.

"HER MASTER S VOICE"
IT is a lime-honored custom for theatrical seasons in college or Little Theatres to open with a comedy. Possibly, because if it is successful, it creates a seasonal mood which is light, pleasant and indicative of an enjoyable ensuing session. Certainly, comedy isn't the most desirable material from a professional angle -it requires more individuality, subtlety and technical finesse than does most tragedy. Its subject is more limited, its style more changeable, its scope more focused.
"Her Master's Voice" gave an invigorating freshness that set a splendid pace for its followers. It was a new. modern sophisticated comedy, with a crooner for a hero, and a depression for a setting. Claire Kummer built her humorous slice of American life around the familiar theme of a man-wife-mother-in-law conflict.

MISS LULU BETT"
☆ Our Pulitzer Prize presentation of the season was Zona Gale's powerful and dramatic portrait of the middle class entitled "Miss Lulu Belt." Miss Gale, who lectured in 193 3 at the Winter Institute of Literature was invited by Dr. Lowe to attend the performance personally, but being unable to be present, she was kind enough to send the players a personal letter, expressing her appreciation and regrets, and suggesting possible effects that could be developed outside the stock script.
This was the second play of the season, and one of the most difficult. Miss Gale, it might be said, won the Pulitzer Prize for so clearly chiseling a well-rounded, middle-class American family. Each player had to draw a character, and for this reason, the best material of the department was drawn into action.
The Herald said: "We applauded the entire cast. and must admit that the players did evoke the illusion."
THE News said: "... a thoroughly delightful surprise: an outstanding achievement in good taste and imagination."

☆ SPINDRIFT, the unique show of the players' season. It was a challenge in every sense—to the director goes a medal for so successfully staging a different play: to the actors, a wreath of laurels for so skillfully delineating such a rich and vastly different assemblage of characters. They were, on a whole, the most difficult technically, the deepest psychologically, and the most puzzling and variable emotionally, of any presentations to date. To the technicians an orchid for creating so convincing a setting as greeted the audience at the opening curtain: namely, the rustic and beautiful garden of Peter Doremy's California home "Spindrift”—it was a true work of art technicians, and the players feel deeply indebted for having been given such an environment in which to work.
Although it seems to have been a unanimous preclusion that "Spindrift" was a better reading play than a playing one. we seem to have broken the axiom since is was a marked success!
SPINDRIFT literally means the spray-like foam from the crest of a wave. To Martin Flavin, the author, it is interpreted into his play to be "the foam of life cast up by the wind, and blown away into nothingness."
To say the least. SPINDRIFT is a drama—raw and biting—subtle and moving. It employs the best foils of the art; firstly. Nature's most dramatic show—the earthquake: Life's most dramatic notes- Death, suicide, accident, love, and temperament. The author chose to call his play a comedy. It was a comedy only in the strictest sense—a play that ends happily for the leading love interests. From all other angles, it was real, dramatic, and tragic!
The play closes in the same drab gray mood in which it opens—its entertainment value being that several weeks of poignant, emotional dramatic episodes from the lives of the cast areDRAMATIC PRESENTATIONS
sandwiched between its opening and closing curtain.

PEG O' MY HEART"
.1 Comedy of Manner by .1. Hartley Manners V The cast was very fortunate in having as guest director Miss Laurette Taylor, the New York stage star who was the original "Peg." and who did such an immortal characterization twenty years ago. She was the wife of the author and the inspiration of the play.
Miss Taylor coached Miss Paulk (our Peg), and seemed well pleased with her work, rewarding her with a summer stock assignment. She attended a rehearsal personally, and commended Mrs. Motter and the cast on their work.
One might say that the audience went home with smiling Irish eyes- the humorous, pathetic Peg. winning her way thoroughly into their hearts—a memorable theatre evening.
THE HERALD SAID: ". .. even Laurette I ay lor was agreeably surprised with the work of Jac-queline and the cast."

•£? "Barbara Freitchic." the fifth production of the season, proved to be drama within drama. More unforeseen, dramatic, behind-the-scenes action occurred during this show than in any other. From the "peanut butter" tobacco to the "phantom shot finale." the production seemed dogged by the "Breaks." However, despite the few accidents. Barbara Frcitchic proved to be one of the most impressive, colorful, and thoroughly charming shows in the University Players' itinerary. The show supported a cast of twenty-five, and presented Mrs. Motter with a real problem in mob-direction, the playing stage being a trifle small. The sets were complicated and difficult, the lighting intricate and tricky, but as a complete unit, the play was a consistent and convincing whole.

The Classroom at Sea
Marine Zoology, as interpreted by the zoology department of the University, means class work in zoology which is accompanied by underwater field trips in diving helmets. No other school in the United States carries such a course in its curriculum and no other university has the advantages which permit the offering of such a course.
The first class-diving began in the late spring of 1928 and continued at intervals through 1929. Selected students from the elementary zoology classes took part in this work. A regular course in marine zoology was carried in the bulletins of the university for the next two years, but no formal course was actually given until the spring of 1954.
If we trace the history of the work back beyond the first class diving, we must go back to the year of the founding of the University. 1926. when Dr. Jay Pearson accompanied Dr. William Beebe as member of his "Arcturus" expedition to the Sargasso Sea and the Galapagos Islands. In the cold waters of the Pacific, off Tower Island. Dr. Pearson dived with Dr. Beebe, making numerous trips below the surface, joining in the first experiments that Dr. Beebe made with the Miller-Dunn "Divinhood." From these beginnings. Dr. Beebe went on to carry out extensive studies beneath the seas, which he has so admirably described in numerous publications and lectures, culminating in his striking voyages down into deep water in the now well-known Bathysphere.
Dr. Pearson felt that if scientists could use the helmet with safety and with productive results, it could also be made a teaching instrument to
be used in the instruction and stimulation of students of Zoology. The work at tlx University of Miami followed.
The first regular class in Marine Zoology included eighteen students. The routine included two lectures weekly, an afternoon of laboratory, and a Saturday field trip, with diving. scheduled for each week of the spring term that the weather permitted.
The first class required the use of two boats each day. and with Mr. Miller in one boat and Dr. Pearson in tlx other, two helmets were used by the students of each boat, with excellent results. On one trip ten helmets were used at once, all operating from one large boat, and nine students were under water at one time with their professor.
Artists have painted fascinating pictures of the possibilities of lectures under water with students seated on chairs about an underwater blackboard. Such methods are possible, but arc not worth the effort involved. Ground swells, tidal changes, and other movements of the waterTHE MARINE ZOOLOGY COURSE
make it almost impossible to remain seated on tile necessary metal chair. Corals do not make comfortable seats, and blackboards are too hard to handle beneath the sea. Moreover, ten air lines tangle too readily, and each helmet requires at least three people for effective operation.
In 1 H5 a smaller but more enthusiastic and better qualified group of students achieved excellent results during a term's diving. Numerous stations were made throughout the outer limits of the Bay. around Soldier's Key. at Fowey Light, and down at Turtle Rocks, near Carys-fort Reef. Numerous observations were made on living specimens in their natural habitat, new methods of preservation were developed, and many interesting forms were added to the Biology Museum for study and record.
In 1936 a larger group of students, including a number taking advanced work in marine zoology, have lifted tin quality of the work to a still higher level. Work of graduate calibre has already been done by several students, and the future possibilities of the course are very bright indeed. Students and instructors of biology from other colleges have accompanied the class on its trips, and are enthusiastic about the possibilities.
A Day't Haul
A thousand problems await study in the waters off Miami and further south, and the present course offers only an introduction to these studies. Students learn the general principles of oceanography, and the types of animals that are to be expected in these waters. The principle problems facing present classes are the development of an accurate knowledge of the various types of ocean floor, the different ecological situations, the animals to be found in each varying habitat, the breeding season of the various sea creatures, the rate of growth, the influence of various factors of the environment upon these different animals, and the food habits of each form that is encountered. Each group of animals, in fact each species, presents its own problems for study.
The student taking the course is astonished by the difference in the appearance of the living specimen, as seen beneath the sea through the glass of the helmet, as compared with the same animal brought up on deck, living or dead. Through this first-hand experience as a visitor to this strange new world beneath the surface of the water, each student of marine zoology gains a stimulus and an enthusiasm that are hard to equal by any other method of instruction.an American

BECAUSE of ITS location at the most southeast point of North America.
the University of Miami was established primarily as the first Pan American Institution, to act as a clearing house for the intellectual interests of North and South America. It was thought that through education the peoples of America could be brought into closer relations. To this end many courses are offered at the University in Latin-American subjects. Professors who are natives of South America and authorities on their subjects teach the students. The exchange of students of this university 3nd many of the South American universities is practiced.
In addition in 1928 there was inaugurated a Pan American Forum, at which many noted Latin-Americans appeared for a definite lecture period. Here the political and academic life of our neighboring republics are discussed by leaders.
Dr. Victor Belaunde. now a member of the League of Nations, and a man who has traveled around the world, conducted the first Forum.
Again, in 1931 tlx Forum was renewed under Dr. Victor Belaunde. The attendance was gratifying and the interest was manifold.
After a three year interval, the Pan American Forum was revived in 1934 by Juan Clemente Zamora. The speakers for that session were:
Dr. Luis A. Baralt. who among many other things of note was Secretary of Education in Cuba in 1934.
Dr. Antonio S. dc Bustamente. secretary of the American Institute of International Law. and author of many works dealing with philosophy and law.
Dr. Raul Maestri, who came to Miami from Washington where he is Secretary of the Cuban Embassy.
Dr. Alberto del Junco. a lawyer who teaches legal procedure in the Uni versity of Havana.
It is the desire of the University to establish the Pan American Forum as an annual meeting, each year, devoted to one certain country with speakers to present all sides and thus give a complete picture of the country.o n o r

Tke Kissed Elk
By JONAS ROSENFIELD, Jr.
It wouldn’t be being a sissy if he did it. His mother said it was like being in a play. It was acting, only you weren’t on a stage, and nobody knew you were acting.
‘‘You’re going to be my little girl,” she explained. “I have just adopted you. We’ll fool everybody. It’s going to be great fun.”
He wondered about adopted. He didn't look like his mother or his daddy. “You belong to the iceman,” people would say, and his daddy would cough and scowl. But sometimes he thought he was an orphan who had been adopted when he was a baby. A little doorstep baby, like in a fairy story.
Now, they were on their way to the church. Sitting in the car, his Mother told him he must keep his dress down. Girls were sissies to wear dresses. A shiny blue purse dangled from his arm. He felt the pressure of tiny blue earrings. They had hurt when his mother had screwed them into his lobes.
He was wearing Miriam’s blue dress. “We can use a complete outfit of Miriam’s,” his mother had told Mrs. Comer, “she’s just about his size.” But he was wearing his mother’s shoes. His feet were big. The heels felt funny and stilt-like.
He wished he were on stilts now out in his liackyard walking through mud without getting his feet wet. But he was going to a banquet. A Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet at the church. And his mother was taking him for her daughter. “It isn’t being a sissy,” she had assured him. “It’s just like acting in a play.”
He used to stand in the school yard and watch the girls bouncing balls, skipping rope, and playing house under the hedges, and he sometimes used to wish that he'd been born a girl just to see what it felt like. He wondered if his feet would have been so large or his ankles so thick. You didn’t have to fight when you were a little girl. And your daddy didn’t make you box Pork Chops, the little son of the colored cook, out in the backyard every Sunday morning to make you tough.
“Yes,” his mother was saying, “She's our new little girl. We adopted her this morning, just so
I could come to the Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet.” And everybody laughed. Some of the ladies laughed as if they knew he was playing girl. And some laughed as if they thought it was a good idea, because they knew how badly the Sterlings wanted a little girl.
“If this next baby is a boy,” his mother had threatened before he was born, “I’m going to throw him into Whinncpaw Lake.” He had two brothers and his mother wanted a little baby girl. He used to shiver at the thought of being thrown into Whinncpaw Lake. He thought about it a lot. One day he told his mother that God must have made him such a very nice little boy so she wouldn’t throw him into the lake and drown him like a little kitten. And his mother hadn’t laughed her full and happy laugh, but instead had swept him into her arms, strong, capable arms, and had kissed him. Her eyelashes had been wet when she set him down.
The dinner was served in the Thomas Sterling Hall. It was named for his grandpa who had helped build the church when Dalton was a little town and the red fire trucks were drawn by horses that blew smoke through their noses. Sterling Hall was where they used to have Sunday assemblies, but now the rows of dark, creaking chairs had been displaced by lines of white covered tables; just as they had at congregational dinners.
They sat along the tables, mother and daughter, mother and daughter. The mothers leaned across their daughters, who sat silently with big eyes, or squirmed nervously, to gossip with neighbors. Some of the smallest girls cried and had to be taken from the room. Caroline Flowers was sitting next to him. In Sunday school he hit her in the back of the head with spit balls. But she didn’t recognize him now .And she asked him what his favorite doll was. He replied disdainfully that he didn’t play with dolls any more. But then he said his favorite was a rag doll, because he remembered that he was an actor, and that nobody was to know that he was playing at being a girl.
Mrs. Schauer, in white, appeared at the door with a large aluminum tray pillowed against theTHE KISSED ELBOW
fullness of her bosom. Some of the older girls were helping her serve. The food was in one paper plate. The plate had little walls on it; so, in one part there was chicken, in another, potato, and in another, beans. All the ladies told Mrs. Schaucr what a wonder she was, and smacked their lips over the food.
The chicken was cold and he didn't know whether to pick it up in his fingers. His mother was talking, so he couldn't ask her, and he couldn't cut it. The boiled potato was crisp and raw. The beans were too salty. So he sat there with his food before him, cold and sodden. The plate had puffed with the water from the food. He munched nuts from the little basket on the table before him. He drank the lukewarm water and was stifled by the confusion of clashing silver on china and the haze of murmuring conversation that suffocated the room.
“Now, ladies,’’ Mrs. Coleman said, standing and tapping her glass with her knife, “Let us dispense with the refreshments and get on with the program." He liked the tinkle of knife on glass. He tapped his glass. Then he tapped his mother’s. They made different sounds. That was because hers had more water in it than his. He reached over to get Caroline’s. Hers was full of water. He tried to play a song: ding, dong, dang; dong, dang ding. His mother covered his hand in hers and shushed him with her mouth.
Dorothy King made a speech to the Mothers for the Daughters. A very, very fine speech, his mother said. And all clapped with the tips of their fingers on the palms of their hands. Dorothy sat down red and smiling. Her mother kissed her, and everybody clapped and laughed again. Mrs. King got up heavily to answer the address of the Mothers. Beaming brightly, she spoke of how happy and how proud she was to have a daughter. Then she spoke sadly and solemnly of the responsibility that must fall upon the rising generation. And Mrs. Hart dabbed her eyes with her napkin. Mrs. Hart was emotional, his mother remarked. She liked to cry.
Everybody fingerclappcd for Mrs. King. She sat down, red and smiling, and turned to kiss her daughter. She touched her eyes with her handkerchief, just like Mrs. Hart. Ladies got up and shook hands with her. And she bowed and smiled and kissed Dorothy.
Then Mrs. Coleman tapped her glass again. The glass turned over, and he watched the water sodden the table cloth and spread as on a blotter.
“And now, ladies,” announced Mrs. Coleman, “we come to the surprise of the afternoon. We all know, love, and respect Mrs. Sterling, but you must be wondering why she’s here with us, since the Lord has seen fit to bless her with no daughters and three sons. But,” and she shrugged her shoulders and waved her hand in a vague gesture, "I’ll let her tell you about it, herself—Mrs. Sterling.”
His mother stood up with slow poise, pushing her chair back as she rose. She braced her fingers firmly on the table. She looked around the room, and with a half-smile that lifted one comer of her lips, said,
“The most marvelous thing happened to me the other day, my dear friends. My little son, Joseph, fell out of a tree and broke his arm.” She paused and everyone laughed doubtfully. “But wait a moment. He fell out of the tree and broke his elbow. Now comes the marvelous part. We found that he could kiss his elbow. You all know that when a person kisses his elbow he can change sex. Well, that’s just what happened to Joseph. He kissed his elbow. And, behold, we now have Joan!” and she pointed to Joseph dramatically, and beckoned him to rise.
His legs were cold under his dress. The car-rings hurt his lobes, and the necklace burned into the perspiration that trickled down his chest. A gasp of amusement swept over the hall. A thousand eyes bore into him, discovering his fraud. Gosh, he’d been crazy to come to a Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet. He looked like a girl and really was a boy. He was being a sissy to come. His mother shouldn’t have brought him. They were snickering. Everybody was snickering because Joseph Sterling, dressed up like a girl, had come to the Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet. And Caroline Flowers poked him in the ribs with a sharp elbow, whispering savagely, “Stand up, Joan.” He looked into her eyes and saw a mocking laugh.
“Hey, I hear you dressed up like a girl yesterday and went to the Mothers’ and Daughters’ banquet,” they would yell at him.
“Hiya Joan," they would call him tomorrow. And Alfred and Leonard and David wouldn’t let him play ball with them, but would send him over to the girls to play dolls and house.
His mother took his hand and whispered urgently that he must stand up and bow.
He shook his head frantically and jerked his arm back into his chair. His eyes brimmed withTHE KISSED ELBOW
hot tears that stood poised to tumble down his face. His mother released his hands and turned again to the ladies. “The change seems to have been a little too sudden for Joan,” she smiled. “She doesn’t quite know what to do in a dress.” He slumped low in his chair. His lower lip protruded red. He wound the red-rusted, worn napkin tightly around his wrist. It wasn't fair. And none of the other boys would have done it. None of the other mothers would have done it.
It wasn’t right telling him he wouldn’t be a sissy if he did it. It wasn’t playing; it was being a sissy, too. Being a girl might be all right if you were born that way like Caroline Flowers, but— Well, just you wait until next month came. He’d go to the Fathers’ and Sons’ banquet then. He was going to sit right next to his daddy, and he’d kick shins with Alfred and Leonard and David. And he’d play tit-tat-toc with them on the tablecloth.

DOUGLAS W. REYNOLDSonquere
By GRETCHEN KRAMER
A mbrosk was a smallish man., with a mind that fitted his body. He had been one of those unfortunate persons whom Fate
-A. A.had placed in a life quite alien to his desires. For, although Ambrose was pale in his personality, he had a strong imagination. In truth, he was an incurable romanticist, who had been forced to pour over ledgers, instead of novels, which were far more to his liking. It had been years since he had been allowed a vacation; and he awoke to the strong realization that he needed one.
Going to his young employer, he weakly asked for a rest, apologizing that he knew he shouldn’t be so presumptuous; but that it would be very kind of his employer, Mr. Wilkens, to allow him one. Mr. Wilkens was a good natured, curious, young man, who, before answering Ambrose’s question, asked:
“Well, Ambrose, there is no denying you should have a rest, but what would you do if you had it?” “I’d like to read, sir." Was the plaintive reply. “Read, Ambrose! Read what?” asked Mr. Wilkens, who was a bit aghast at a man’s wishing to take a vacation in order to read.
“Oh, I don’t know, sir, just read. I don’t dare take time when I’m working, because I get so interested in a book that I will sit up all night, finishing it. Then the next day, I’m too sleepy to know what I’m doing."
“Well, Ambrose, I was thinking of taking an apartment in the city, so that my wife and I could take in a few plays. How would you like to come out to our place for two weeks? We have a huge library, first editions and that kind of stuff, you know. You could have the house to yourself, and the servants would look after you.” Mr. Wilkens smiled at the quivering flood of gratitude that came over the older man’s face. That, he thought, must have been a swell idea.
Ambrose arranged his ledgers carefully, giving minute instructions to his assistants, before he left for his vacation. It was a lovely day when he arrived at the Simpson home, which was the largest he had ever been in. The house was open and Spring was flooding through it. The long rooms and the open French doors did not register with Ambrose, neither did the dignified butler,
who took his bags, and left him to wander through the rooms alone.
If Ambrose was not impressed by the splendid display, he was certainly overcome by the library. It was a heavily curtained room, with book shelves lining the four walls. Ambrose went to one of the windows and drew back the drapes, letting the half-light come into the large room. He had never felt such an engulfing delight; the shock of finding this room of high walls and undisturbed peace left him so weak, that he had to consider his good fortune sitting down.
Then he began to figure, from force of habit, the number of hours he would have to spend sleeping and eating. There were twenty-four hours in a day, and he would be there exactly fourteen days. This allowed him three hundred and thirty-six hours; he deducted from this three meals, and eight hours for sleep. It became very confusing to Ambrose, and he got quite worried at the way his beautiful holiday was dwindling to a matter of hours. He decided that he would have to be systematic about it, in order to read as many books as possible in the short amount of time that he had.
Whereupon, he began to scan the shelves seeking out the books that caught his eye. Balzac sounded interesting, although he feared he might be a bit risque, for he was looking at A Harlot's Progress. Ambrose didn’t know a great deal about books, except that he liked to read them. He took down the Tale of Two Cities and The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, because the names appealed to him. Vaguely he remembered having heard of these books in circulating library pamphlets; he wished he had some with him now, so that he could tell what he should read.
By dinner time he had a large pile of books stacked around his arm chair. The butler came into the library to find Ambrose precariously balanced on the top of a wall ladder, at the far corner of the shelves.
“Shall I serve dinner in the dining room or bring a tray to you in here, sir?" asked the butler in a loud voice, as he stood at the bottom of the ladder eyeing the figure at the top.
“It would be very kind of you if you would bring it in here,” said Ambrose, “if it wouldn’t beCONQUERED
loo much trouble,” he added quickly.
“Not at all, sir”
Ambrose did not notice the tray when it was brought in, because he had by this time acquired the balancing power which enables one to become preoccupied at the top of a ladder. When he finally came down, he was loaded with heavy books, which held the glorious mystery of gold and purple bindings. He ate a cold dinner, ascending the ladder hastily when he had gulped it down. He was not conscious of the fatigue that running up and down the ladder h3d caused him, until about midnight. All this time he had spent in getting down, from the high shelves, books which held the awful attitude of objects out of reach. The time had not been wasted, he decided, consoling himself; he had to make a careful study of the books, before he dared settle down to any one of them.
With much apologizing to the butler, Ambrose conveyed to him that he would like to sleep in the library on the sofa, if it wouldn’t be too much trouble. Also, could he ring for the butler, instead of being interrupted?
“Very good, sir. I will come when you ring.”
That night was a fitful one for Ambrose, because he kept waking up with the feeling that valuable time was slipping through his fingers. Several times he got up and began to pull out books from the stack on the fioor; but he became too sleepy to read more than a few pages.
The next few days he spasmodically remembered to ring for meals, which he considered a great waste of time. Then, with running up and down the ladder frantically, without settling down to any one book, Ambrose forgot to ring the bell for breakfast. He likewise forgot to do so for luncheon or dinner. With the panicky fatigue of constantly going from one shelf to another, fearing that he might overlook an invaluable masterpiece, he was unconscious of the passing of time. He would suddenly stop in the middle of the room, and, quickly looking about at all the books he wanted to read, realize how little time he had to do so; at such moments as these he l ecame positively glassy-eyed with the thought of the pages he wanted to pour over, before he could let his hands slip on this holiday. Then. with the vision of the end drawing
nearer, he would scuttle up the ladder again to get down another book to see if it would be anything he wanted to read.
He would collect a set of books on the desk before him and try to read them all at once, the first page, the middle page — and the last and look at all the illustrations.
The butler became worried about the little man who was tearing up the library, because he had not rung for his meals and he could hear no stir of life. He went to the door, but it was locked.
Then he tried to peer in the library windows, that looked out onto the terrace, but the drapes had been drawn. Ambrose had done this to keep the day out, and the racket of the birds bothered him. This perplexed the butler greatly, so he called Mr. Wilkcns on the telephone.
“It appears that Mr. Ambrose does not desire to eat, for he hasn’t rung for his meals in the last few days. I can't get into the library door and the window drapes are drawn. I wish you’d come, sir. He was acting very strangely when I last brought him his tray. Hardly touched anything on it.”
“I’ll come as soon as I can." said Mr. Wilkcns, who had no desire to take time off to fish Ambrose out of his library.
That was precisely what he did, too. For when he arrived, letting himself into the library by his own key, he could see no sign of Ambrose. A light by the armchair was burning dully; but, aside from that, only the naked shelves looked down from the high walls on a room of utter disorder. When his eyes grew accustomed to the gloom, Mr. Wilkens saw a pile of books toppled in a stack before the chair. But no Ambrose.
“Ambrose. Hey, Ambrose! Where in the devil are you?" he shouted, but got no reply.
Then, going over to the pile of books, he saw, much to his amazement, a pale hand protruding from the stack. One by one they lifted off the books, until they found Ambrose expired at the bottom of them. Apparently the tall stack had caved in upon him, because he was completely covered by the disarranged volumes. In his other hand he vic-troiously grasped a book with violent red and green covers. It was evident he had read most of it, when the catastrophe had come upon him. The book that Ambrose was holding was, His Mistress’ Scarlet Garters.Etkiop
By ISABEL HANSON
The Italian armies were coming down into the foothills now. It was early autumn and the air was clear and clean near the hills, in spite of the steady sun.
The troops had left the transports ten days ago and there had been no fighting yet; a few skirmishes now and then, when suddenly out of the underbrush a volley of small shot would kick up the dust before them, and a handful of ragged natives with parched skin and old faces, with the thin brown legs of their race, would harass the troop with a babel of wild voices and a brandishing of thin swords.
Pasquale hadn’t seen any fighting, though. None of their troop had lost a man. Luguichi in the fourth flank had a bullet wound in his thigh, but, transferred to the motor hospital, they hadn’t heard him, and so, in their careless way had forgotten. When news filtered through that Lugichi had lost a leg, it was an impersonal thing like hearing that old Godolchi had indigestion or that the prisoners were being sliced up generally. A man couldn’t tell about a thing he’d never seen or felt.
And so the troop swung on under the bright sun; the rhythm got inside of you, like the music did sometimes on the canals at home, and you swung along and there was Nichi always on your right, whistling through puckered lips. Nichi was young, a year younger than Pasquale, short, but thick and strong, and he had a man’s chest. Nichi was always on his left and tall Alonzo, restraining his long stride, kept pace on the right. Alonzo came from the hills, in the north. He’d tended sheep there, since he was eleven. He spoke in a strange Italian, and he didn’t speak at all most of the time, but laughed a lot easily, happily. This was a good life for Alonzo. Plenty to eat, three times a day, and no bother; new shoes if you needed them too. These thick-so'cd, high-laced shoes would last a long time. The best shoes they had ever had, well made and comfortable; the leather creaked in even rhythm while they marched, left, left.
Sometimes one of them would curse, softly, pleasantly, and slip his haversack farther up on his shoulders, or tighten the broad leather belt,
and all morning the march would swing on down through the foothills and the smell of leather and the creak of the shoes would blend in the far off snoring of the motor trucks and keep in time with the heavy tread, left, left, and the earth would tremble in the great marching surge, left, left, and you didn't get tired because you were swung along with the others, with Nichi and Alonzo and the others.
One morning, about seven o’clock, when the march began and the new light shone on helmet and musket and the dew sprinkled against their leggings as they trampled the tall grass, a trail of black birds crossed the sky over their heads.
A shot rang out, the flying formation was broken; the whir of wings increased, and the shot bird fell at his feet, beating its wings, violently, then slowly, then scarcely mover! at all.
Pasquale knelt down and picked up the bird, missed a step then caught up with the others. He could feel the heart beats in the palm of his hand and the warmth of its body. Then the blood flowed out of the wound and he stopped a few paces later to lay it aside in the grass; but the light was dimmed, and there was an omnimous rhythm in the martial tread. “Why were they marching here in a strange land?” Pasquale thought. Life! Wings soaring and then a shot, that was the end of flying, the end of the wild cry and the song, and it was not right that it should be so. Pasquale mused on these things as the army cut through the foothills until midafternoon.
In the afternoon they were switched to the trucks, still in that same group, Nichi and the others, and rumbled across the plains under the fading light, over the bumpy, rough-tracked roads, and sometimes they sang. The farm seemed a long way off to Pasquale now, and a long time ago; he looked up and blinked at the light, and stretched a little and yawned.
It was a few weeks later that the troops were halted suddenly. There were a few scattered cries and then the whole wild babel of the natives was upon them, deafening them.
Pasquale, Nichi, and the others, loaded, fired. A few men fell near them, and the voices in-P. T II I O P
creased, a strange tongue; but the excitement, the exhilcration, they could understand. Pasquale saw one of the thin-legged, white-robed figures spin around and drop over in the dust about forty feet away, screaming like a native priest. Blood stained his tunic and trailed across the sand; it poured out faster and faster in sudden spurts until there was dark sand all around the swart, wrinkled face and the shrill cries dwindled to a muffled whine. He had watched the scene for a long time, it seemed, when Nichi, pushing him aside, shouted something in his ear, and the loading, firing, reloading, went on again. “I am Pasquale Ludvino,” he thought, “we’re fighting for Italy, the Holy Mother will protect us,” and his ears were pounding with a strange excitement as though his brain would burst, and his legs felt light, but after awhile he could load his musket with steady fingers.
That night when the marching stopped, their
commanding officer addressed the troops, and praised them and explained the next day’s campaign.
Later, Pasquale lay in his tent a long time, thinking, thinking; he heard the beat and whir of wings, and the hum of motors; planes crashed, men fell in battle, and a bird came falling down to earth, but these were little things. Life was for the strong, for the future, “a broader view,” the commander had said. Nations must be cut down that nations live. If you couldn’t keep your land or mine your own gold, a stronger arm or a keener brain wrested it front you, and he, Pasquale, belonged to the strong. They must think ahead, and see before them the great upward sweep of civilizations ; machines, great buildings of white stone shining in the sun, halls of science and of governments. These were the things that mattered; what did it signify that a man fell in the dust, or a bird’s flight was broken?
I like a winding railroad track, The swing oj steel around a curve, The look of never coming back— Of endless journey into space.
The urge to travel anywhere,
With hope of never getting there I
KEVA ALBURYTke Opera
People talk about love. I only listen to them, or try not to listen, because it is the one topic on which they seem peculiarly insane. They do not sec in love their own replacement and death. People spending their whole lives getting old—what do they know of love?
I fell in love last night. I never want to sec her again—never remember her name.
The Smiths said they could not afford to go to the opera. Seats were five dollars in the orchestra. They let me off early so that I could go. I was to be an usher in the gallery. I was able to hear Spalding and Tibbctt that way. There was no pay for it, of course, but an usher could bring a girl. Dick Norris knew that I did not have a girl —everyone knew that. He wanted to bring his sister. It was simple and convenient; they met me outside and I went in with Dorothy Norris. She sat with Dick's girl and we went about our work. He would go over to talk to them at slack moments, leaving me at the door to read ticket stubs and send people to the right aisle.
It was important to be given that job even for a minute. People were impressed. I would read the stub, a pair of figures on a card, and then I would tell them where to go. I wished that I could be doing this on one of the lower floors. Office girls and ten cent store clerks come to the gallery After an opera I like to mingle in the long lobby among young women who wear white coats cut short at the waist, and dresses that look like anything but cloth, draped to the floor. They look at me intently—as if to wonder who I am, as if they imagine my face and my long thin nose to be interesting. It is one of my conceits. When I have the Pierce-Arrow out alone I take off my chauffeur’s cap and act the part of a gentleman —someone they ought to know but can not place.
Once in ten or twenty people someone of intelligent appearance would come through the door, and it made the job worth while.
The orchestra gathered in its pit. Most of our seats were filled. The lights dimmed. The San Carlos Opera Company was ready to present Gounod’s Faust. Dick motioned for me to draw the curtains at the door. He had a seat with the girls. There was another seat there, but I did not
take it. I decided to stand. If one loved the music, it did not matter if he had to stand. Dick could have his girls.
Faust—I had never heard it given so well. The basso they had for Mcphistopholes, he was not a man, he was an organ.
At the end of the act I was a hero. I was the man in the gallery for whom they were playing. People clapped, but I did not need to clap. I was there to listen—to drink in the souls of the gods there that sang the destiny Gounod had given them.
I stood erect, indifferent; my eyes bitter, my lips polite. People went out for a smoke. I did not need to smoke. The ceiling was high — we were the fourth balcony. From this aisle I could touch the roof. It was the same roof that held the immense chandeliers above the five dollar seats.
Intermission over, I went out on the stairway, officially, to see that everything was in good order. Dorothy was out there, perched on the top step. She said she was not feeling well, but that it would be all right. I was sympathetic, and she, appreciative.
She decided that it would be as well to go in for the second act. I took her hand to help her to her feet, and she smiled a thanks. I sat with her, then, through the rest of Faust.
She handed me her opera glasses and soon I handed them back. The gesture was repeated. It was something to keep us from forgetting each other in the music. I had helped her in; that made her mine for the evening. Her body, so near, gave the scenes on the stage another dim-mension.
Now it is gone. I have been driving, today, for an autocratic old lady. I am afraid of her because of something inside of me that will not be a man while I have a cap on my head. Last night I was a hero—last night I was in love.Old Safko
By JOHN’ ESTERLINE
Lrnny did it because they said he was yellow. You would have done it, too, if they had said that about you. Besides old Safko - couldn't catch you anyway, and now Lenny could call that new kid a sissy till he did it.
Old Safko had run after Lenny screaming, "Police, Police, Police, Police.” And Lenny ran with the apple held against his school books as fast as he could go. Safko quit running and wiped his red face and yelled that he would kick those kids in the pants.
All the guys that Lenny liked were at the corner waiting for him. He gave Gus and Louie and Joe a bite of the apple. Lenny said he guessed he wasn’t yellow anymore and maybe could he go around with Gus and Louie and Joe now? They were in the fifth grade and Joe was so smart he even knew how to get from Woods Run to the Sixth St. bridge that went across the river to the other part of Pittsburgh. And Gus was bigger than any of the guys in the fifth grade. He was the first guy to steal any apples. He started when he was in the fourth grade. Lenny said, “IH get hell if my Mother finds I snitched an apple.” But he was glad he could say that now. Lenny felt good and he said to the gang, "Where shall we go now?”
They started down by the railroad and when they were beside the Pressed Steel Car Company, Gus said he wished like Hell his old man wouldn’t be late that night for supper. You could see Gus’ old man with a big pair of gloves on his hands dragging iron pipes around on the inside of the barber! wire fence by the side of the factory. Lenny said, "My old man works the night shift and he swears at my mother if she makes any noise during the day.” Lenny felt even better now. This was more fun than playing around with those younger kids. Louie and Gus and Joe could take a licking from the sisters or anything and he could go around with them now ’cause he wasn’t yellow.
Louie kicked a stone from the roadbed down the bank and into the river and they went on down the track. Louie said, "On the other side of the bridge over the river there’s no factories. How do the kids’ fathers get along with no factories to work in?” Joe said there was enough offices there for all the fathers and they didn’t need any factories. Lenny wasn’t very sure about it but he thought that Joe was right. He had to know about those kind of things to hang around with Joe and Louie and Gus.
Pretty soon they came to the Pen. That’s what Joe and Gus and Louie and all the guys called the big Jail. Its real name was Western Penitentiary but everybody called it the Pen. Joe’s father worked there. He was a carpenter. Lenny remembered how Joe’s father told his father all about the Pen one night. And Joe’s father was the only guy on the block who knew what went on inside the Pen. He told Gus and Louie and Joe about it too. Lenny hoped they’d tell him how the guys inside got electrocuted.
Gus said his Uncle Francis Kovak pretty near went to the Pen once. Lenny said “Why?” And Gus said he guessed it was for putting that guy in a tub of water that left only his teeth after a month or two. Lenny said to Gus he wished his uncle would stab old Safko.
They tried to peep in through the gate of the Pen, but the guard told them to beat it damn quick. Then Gus got mad and threw a rock at the guard. It hit the little house where the guard stays when he doesn’t walk around behind the gate with a gun on his shoulder. Then Gus and Louie and Joe ran around the corner and started to giggle. Lenny ran after them. He said he’d throw a rock at the guard if Gus wanted him to but Gus said he couldn’t throw that far. Lenny said to himself that he would learn to throw even farther than that. He wanted to do everything that Gus and Louie and Joe could do.OLD SAPKO
The guys said they guessed they would go home and Lenny said so long to them. They said so long, too, except for Louie. He was throwing rocks at a street light.
Lenny walked home fast because it was getting dark and he didn't want a licking. All the rest of his family were eating the supper when he got there. His mother told him in Slovak to wash his hands. When his father came into the room with his dinner bucket like he always did before going to work in the evening, he asked Lenny, “How was school today?” But Lenny couldn’t even answer for a minute because he saw that his Father was mad. Finally he said school was all right. Then quick as anything he said to
Lenny, “Mr. Safko came here and said you stole an apple from his store.” Lenny knew he couldn’t get out of it because he could see that his father had really talked to Old Safko; so he said he took the apple from in front of the store.
Then Lenny's old man licked him good and hard right in front of Lenny’s whole family. His mother started to cry and kissed him after his father got through licking him. His mother said said she knew her Lenny wouldn’t steal. Lenny’s father said she didn’t know what a tough little brat Lenny was becoming. And Lenny stopped crying and almost grinned because he knew he was really getting tough now just like Gus and Louie and Joe.
Brown men with no endurance on their lips Or in their eyes.
With no disguise
To belted trousers hanging off their hips, Nor to the signs that plead for work to do. How troubled we would be if they were new.
What do I, the gifted, know of hunger. Governmental anger,
Parades, or the asking of a parson for a dime? I know of places I can go To eat and do
A little mopping of the floors.
Some polishing of doors,
So that I hold along a little longer.
What do I, the gifted, know of hunger?
Ten years ago these men were drawing pay And paying foreign autocrats To lend a little liquor to the way,
To lend a little colour to the wines.
Ten years ago they didn’t believe in signs. Ten years ago didn’t know Of places I could go To work a little food into my arms.
And so, I sat divinely on my youth.
And passed a bit of bread across my teeth, And my alarms
Were literary, and they were profound— Concerning bodies in the ground.
And worms annoyed to find No meat along the skeleton (A funny thing, a mind,
Calling its frame a skeleton And signing it to dust).
I’ve never felt so much alive Or tipped with glad, theatric lust,
As—very young, gnawed on bread And signed my flesh to dust.
ROBERT RICHARDSA St
Our first step, was one often overlooked by the rank and file of investigators. Was Thomas Stone the murdered man ? We ascended fifteen stories above New York by courtesy of Bruccrather apartments and the Otis elevator company.
Mrs. Ferguson, the chamber maid, let us in. Coffins, my assistant, ushered the bewildered chamber woman to a seat directly facing Stone. “Now tell us,” he said gently—
“Of course,” said Mrs. Ferguson, “of course. I was astonished as you gentlemen may imagine, to find the windows open, the door unlocked, and everything natural except for the fact that Stone was dead—the poor man.” She produced a bandana and began to weep. “My perceptions,” she assured us, “are accurate, because I was trained as a young girl to write Short Stories by the S. S. Salesmanship Course in Selling Saleable Short Stories.”
“That,” said Coffins, “will do. You may scram.” “One moment,” I counseled the worried woman. “Tell me, did Stone have any enemies who would have been likely to plot this deed ?”
“As I said,” she replied, “the door was open, the windows were open, everyone hated the man and would have been glad to get him out of the way, there was no evidence of a struggle. Even the Down City Club—whom I venture has put you on this case, hated the old duffer to a man, and is anxious to find the murderer so that it may properly reward him.”
“You have a keen mind, Ferguson,” I told her. “Too keen. Now scram. There is a man’s work to be done and you are but a woman.”
“Alas,” she said. “I go, but don’t take any wooden Indians.”
My assistant, Coffins, I call him, had been an undertaker, and knew death in its every form. He affirmed that this was not suicide. “People do not inhale gas with a grin on their mug," he said.
“How do you know.” I asked him, “that it was gas which caused the deceased to decease?” “Number one—I smell something fishy. Number two—there ain’t nothing wrong with him. He
just stopped running, like a car when it’s out of gas.”
“Yes,” I agreed. “When a car starts to inhale air instead of gas, it stops running. The opposite is true of the human machine.”
“Except a car’ll run when you give it gas, but pump all the air you want in a corpse and it will just sit and look at you.”
I assured him that this fact had not escaped my attention.
“And number three,” he concluded, “the homicide dept, said it was gas and those homicide boys know their stuff.”
This was a baffling mystery; it would take a minute to solve it. Go out of the room for a minute, Coffins, I said. He went out of the room for a minute. When he came back I told him how it had happened.
I pointed to a thin black chimney outlined against the white of a neighboring skyscraper. “Do you see that smoke?"
He could not help seeing it and grunted as much.
“Very well. Gasses, invisible gasses, often will escape from tall chimneys such as that one. A breeze could very easily bring sufficient carbon monoxide gas into this room to kill off old Thomas and six of his grandchildren as they slept cozily in that armchair, and never in the least disturb that satisfied composure. Sign painters with their scaffolds in the wake of a whiff of these poisonous gasses have been known to succumb and fall dozens of stories. In no cases has one of them ever escaped death.
The undertaker shuddered unashamed. We might ourselves be on the verge of collapse. “Let’s get out of here,” he pleaded. “I feel shaky.”
Seeming slightly dizzy myself, I assented.
He was to learn from the homicide boys if carbon monoxide could be considered a possibility. I was to question the weather department as to what their winds were up to on the first of the month.
We met in the Brucerather lobby two hours later. His downcast expression was disheartening. “No go,” he announced gloomily. “They wereA STONE FOR STONE
surprised even I didn’t know carbon monoxide never screwed up the liver.”
“The wind, on the second,” I informed him, “was from the northeast, and strong. It couldn’t have been that.”
“And I was hopin’ for a round of golf this afternoon,” he sighed.
“Oh Hell, Coffins, let’s announce that result to the down city lads and collect our lucre. They are likely to embrace it as the solution of the century. Come—” and he came, I went, and we went.
The club secretary was a grouch, but an amiable one. “Gasses,” he exclaimed. “Gasses of the stomach! Piffle!”
“Carbon monoxide gasses.” Coffins explained. “Oh, left his car running in the room with the window closed?"
We told him about the chimney. We admitted that it was an unusual case. That was why it was necessary to hire a special investigator.
The rat dialed the Homicide bureau. They told him about the liver clause. “O.K.” we said. “You win.”
He laughed. “Keep at it boys you’re doing fine he said. By the way that’s a good plot for a story—I write short stories, you know.
We hurried out and down to the street. We comfortably settled ourselves on a curb by a fire plug and defied motordom to park on our toes. “What are we going to do now?” Coffins wanted to know.
“Confess,” I said slowly.
“Confess we murdered Stone.”
“But we didn’t.”
"Of course we didn’t, and there will be no evidence with which to convict us when we plead not guilty later. But in the mean time we can rake in a lot of dough from the down-city boys.” “How we gonna get the money if we’re in jail ?” he asked. “We gotta be two places at the same time.”
I was willing to admit that the objection was not a trifling one. "The only thing to do” I told him, “is to have you confess while I hang around and collect the fee.”
“Like so much I will. What’s the matter with you confessin’?”
“Someone intelligent has to be on the outside to handle the technicalities.”
"Oh! I ain’t intelligent?”
“Let us say that you lack experience.”
“I also lack experience for confessin’ murders I didn’t do."
“And here,” I pointed out to the rat, “is an excellent opportunity for you to gain that experience."
“I’ll tell you what." he said, “We’ll flip for it." I lost.
I picked a way through the human debris to the Police Station. They were elated. Sergeant Bones tripped over a full cuspidor in his hurry to get to the “unsolved murder” list and scratch off Stone.
He hurried out to the back of the station to get the captain.
The captain came in looking like an English bull. He hardly glanced at me. There were some officers in a corner at a table. “What are you doing ?” he growled at them.
“Writing saleable short stories ,sir,” they replied in chorus.
“Where do you send them ?”
“To the Mad Hatter, sir.”
“Never tried it." He looked at me. “What do you want?”
“I murdered Thomas Stone, —sir.”
“Then stop asking foolish questions and get out.”
There seemed little else to do. I walked out on the street. “By God,” I exclaimed to myself. What strength. I must be strong. I will find the murderer.”
I went up to Stone’s room again. There might be some hidden clue. I found a man in the room. “Didn’t I tell Mrs. Ferguson to keep this door locked?” I asked him.
“Of course you did.” he replied. He was a dark man and he did not wear any make-up.
“Who are you ?” I demanded to know.
“I,” he said “am a writer.”
“And what are you doing here ?”
“I forgot some details about the room. I am writing about the deceased Mr. Stone."
“Why are you doing that ?”
“Because I decided he would be better dead in a story than ali%’e and in other people’s way?” “So what?”
“So I killed him.”
“Read my story,” he said.
“Try and make me,” I said.
That got him.Anne
By GRETCHEN KRAMER
It was a golden day of wine and sunshine, Anne thought, as she scuffed up the white lime road that made a silver ribbon through the brilliant green foliage and undergrowth to the pale, still bay at its termination, where the small sailboats held their masts erect and motionless in the afternoon air. It was strange that while she was walking back to the house with John, whom she hadn't seen in two years, John, whom she had thought was like the gold tropic days, necessary to her existence, that she should listen to the throbbing sunshine and the stillness that comes cither before dawn or sunset, before the stirring breezes have come to make motions of shadows and half-lights over the small, peaceful world. This wasn’t the same man, she told herself, who had played through ten laughing days with her, when she had been a lonely temperamental child. Those days had made her realize how foolish it would be to try to force anything in her life. She had been, and always wanted to be somehow, as though she enjoyed the pain of carrying it, the honor of being one of the few: lonely. There had been that line “I am the cat that walks alone;” her mother had called her that. Sometimes her loneliness had been soft and comfortable, making her become an independent, living person, who could move easily among her books and music, unhindered and uninterrupted;
That was the loneliness that had been hers before she was conscious that her life was different, that other girls her age were going to parties, or being taken to the movies by boys. Then a new experience had come to her, sweeping up all the threads of rest and enjoyment and tieing them into a hard, taut knot, of white loneliness. Anne always thought of it as ‘white loneliness,’ as she had reasoned the color scheme out for this abstraction long ago; but somehow, while the thoughts were going through her mind as she went up the road with John beside her, she could not recall. Perhaps it was because ‘whiteness’ was the utterly blank, colorless existence that one feels when there is something inside her on the verge of breaking, or snapping, but never seems to do either. Listening to her radio in the dark, when a chorus of voices had been singing the first days of Creation from Genesis, she had been
conscious for the first time that her mind, instead of seeing notes and melodies in music, could detect the color of the notes. That night she could see the great clouds of purple, mass voices rolling their notes from the depths of the song in smooth, vomitings of shaded purple; then the soprano had separated the purple clouds, and shot up between them, dividing the mists with her light, silver voice. It had been silver, and other voices had followed her with red tones, but the only pastel shade was the silver blue, like a fountain, shooting up among the clouds of purple at intervals, shattering the dark shades into small, living particles of song.
Seasons and weather had as direct a personality for her, as people and animals. This golden afternoon, with its poised ripeness of living and fruits in the fragrant, liquid air, brought back similar afternoons. She had heard people say that one missed the changes of seasons when in the tropics, but to Anne there was a feeling more subtle, more pleasing in finding that suddenly, on coming out of doors, that instead of a slight coolness and lightness in the air, the tempo of nature had slowed down to a long, hot lazy summer morning, with the ground breathing with its voluptuous, warm earth under a brighter, longer sun.
Anne suddenly felt her mind grow hard and restricted by the consciousness of John’s presence, knowing that she had not been thinking of him, and fearing that he knew it, too.
“Where’s the uniform?” she asked. The carriage of John’s head had changed, it wasn’t so arrogant and sure now. There was a certain twist to his shoulders that was defeat.
“I’m out of the Navy, Anne.” His voice gathered no animation, as one giving forth a piece of news which he thinks uninteresting.
She feared that somehow she was to blame for his being out of the Navy, and on this particular afternoon, she had no desire to be the determining factor in anyones life.
“My God, John, why?" She asked this with certain dread of the answer in her voice.
“Why—?” he shrugged his shoulders, as though throwing off an unanswerable question. “I’m not quite sure. I haven’t been for months. First I thought it was because of you, but now I don’tANNE
Anne had an odd sensation of relief, as though his last admission had let her off easier than she expected. Their ten days came back more clearly now than they had when she was living through them years ago. It seemed like the veil of ages had lifted, revealing herself and John on a primitive stage acting parts that both of them had dimly forgotten.
Hearing John’s voice was making her wonder if she knew this man at all, or if he didn’t just look like someone else she had known vaguely, years ago. This new person was blotting out with his familiar presence, the image of a sparkling, happy individual whom she had always cherished as being one of the few people she had ever known who was happy, one of the few that belonged.
When he had met Anne, he had taken her like he took everything else: good naturedly and easily. Could she love a person, she had often wondered afterwards, because that person had made her the kind of girl she really wanted to be? Anne had thought about it, but when school and the other events had rushed in, like an avalanche of powerful destroyers, she gradually slipped back into the comfortable, eccentric character that made her not only individual, but sometimes disliked. Sometimes she felt a wave of sorrow, because she was not able to retain that certain quality which John had brought out in her. She had been so deeply impressed by this new, unknown quality in herself, which John had revealed, that she wanted vaguely to hold on to her more peaceful self. When he had left, in a little while, she returned to the same vehement, debunking person.
They talked in restrained questions and answers, on the cool porch, knowing that there was something missing, but not being able to change the inevitable. Anne realized, now as she talked with John, how foolish it had been for her to try to break the mold she had been cast in. She realized that she could never really change from her sensationalist self into a more balanced, tolerant person. Nor was she sure she wanted to change.
"I won’t ever, ever come back to school, ever again," she had said, standing behind the kindergarten piano, because the teacher said she wouldn’t obey and must be punished before the class. The small chains of conventions, which had made her unhappy and uneasy when she was in the presence of other people, bound something wild, and untamed within her, twisted that wildness, until now she had lost the quivering sweetness that was inherent, for a hard, sophisticated
sense of worldliness, with a negative argument for everything. It was entertaining to herself and others, this blatent, flashing personality of hers, but seldom more. Climbing up on a lamp post, and refusing to come down, when she had been so drunk that it really hadn’t mattered whether she did or not, had been fun, for her, in its way; but after doing that for so long, after breaking conventionalities and little rules, she was not able to slow down, was not able to get herself into control when she desired it. When she had met John, he had made her think it was pleasant to be conventional, to be nice, to have people approve of her. But when he had left, she had put on the old costume, pulled it tight over her angular shoulders.
The sunlight came in long, threads of silver through the porch screens from the misty green bamboo trees in the garden. Blue Jays darted wildly from the oleanders to the eaves of the house, and back again, cutting the quietness and peace of the fading afternoon with their sharp calls and swift, hurried motions. Someone was calling to another boat out on the still bay, and the voices came up to her. She tried to hear what the other voice was saying, but John’s words drowned it.
John had been speaking, and when he finished he got up, without looking at Anne. She felt a sudden shock when she realized that he was leaving, for fear he might have been saying something important and she had not been listening.
“Well, I guess I'd better be leaving. I’ve got to change these clothes, or I'll melt.” He looked down at his dark traveling clothes in disgust, as he walked to the door.
Anne watched him go out into the hot afternoon, with his heavy shoulders bent forward and the derby sitting loosely on his head. She stood for a long time in the doorway, watching the shadows of the rubber trees casting green patterns on the uneven, broken walk of lime stone. The walk was a pattern of fitted, closely knitted stones connected with threads of green moss, and the shadows made another, moving pattern on the stones, until both were fused together.
“Christ, what are patterns for?”
Anne said this, as she turned from the door, thinking of John and herself, and the leaves and the broken walk, all diffusing and moving into a living heterogeneous mass. She saw her mother come into the room, but her presence did not seem to change her mind’s vision or the strange, sad emotion she felt.Song of Youth
Steel-keen and unafraid; a swift-hooved cavalry, IVe gallop up the steepening hills Catching the ’wind against our breasts.
We free-hearted, shall fly our falcons high , Unloose them, knowing they shall return.
When the oaks lock dark branches above us, Bereft of leaves; when the music is gone And only the dead trees sighing;
We shall remember how wc crushed the sweet grass Lying with our white-throated loves,
Knowing no fear, no future.
Only the dark fire of our bodies’ need.
We shall not hoard our days, close-fisted, like coins, But fling them, shining, into the air.
Though they fall in dust and ore trodden, lost, We shall remember the free sweep of our hands And the swift scattering of bright gold.
Ours is the song of the morning;
Ours, the swift-hooved cavalry of splendid dreams. We ride in the milk-white moonlight, calling, And we thunder over the plains at noon;
Till in far dust, we become dust :
Till our falcons have soared too high for returning, And our echo is louder than our songs.
There might be something Like a purgatory That Annie Spoon is in And if it be God offers her The choice of Heaven Or Sin.
She won’t knenv which to choose At all.
She’ll say, "How Annie. ’Kid,’ Would wings, up there, look better Than white legs down in hell?"
DOUGLAS W. REYNOLDS
O’ youth I would not ever cling to thee,
For tho I’d live, and love, and laugh, and jest I would taste life in its entirety,
And gladly, growing old, lie down to rest.
With what gentleness you brush the trees
And make them rustle
With a soft murmuring tusscl
Of leaf with leaf
And with what ease
You blow these vapor clouds across the stars. Between the trees.
I found a silver threaded web— Impulsive fingers scattered it,
Then picked a termbUng fragile rose— My clutching hand has shattered it.
I ran to catch a falling star—
It only fell the faster,
And even wooed a moonbeam maid— She gave me but her laughter.
In vain I try to capture beauty—
She is so wild and fleeting,
cannot still her fluttering wings— They will not cease their beating I
Justice in New Jersey
Disgraced, accused in many an alien tongue Ilis fate has forged the steel about his wrists. Humanity’s brutality insists That by a life alone, can there be wrung A just atonement . .. futile recompense. Gaunt-eyed and grim, and strung too taut for tears His face of quiet coldness there, still wears The mask of guilt or strength of innocence.
And thirty days shut in, from beauty, words
Of love, and human kindliness; from all
That makes the spirit swell, like scared night-birds
That shun the snare, those twelve do not recall
The agony endured to create breath
And life; and so, like gods, they mete out death.

☆ Since this is the Tenth Anniversary Edition of the Ibis, it seems only fair that we include some recognition of the past nine graduating classes. Here we give you their colorful reminiscences of the University when . . .c
L ' luc
REMINISCENCES SOUND PRETTY SILLY UNLESS THEY HAPPEN TO BE YOUR OWN. THESE ARE OURS
THF. seniors who arc "Coming Om Into the Great World" will understand what we mean. The freshman won't. They have three years more. But everybody who went to college when we did will remember the following, a kaleidscope of things we won't forget.
I.et'sstart with thesongs. There was "Moanin' Low." and "The Moon and You." and "Oh. oh. oh. would you like to take a walk." and "Stardust." and "Love me or leave me or let me lonely." and "You're Driving me Crazy.”
There was "Hittin' the Ceilin' " and "I'm just a sentimental Gentleman from Gawgia" and “Did you ever hear Pete go tweet-tweet-tweet on his piccolo." and "I may not do the things I should, but whatever I do I do good. How'm I doin' hey. hey. tweet, tweet, tweet, twa. twa." And "Was that the Human Thing to Do?"
There was Bee Smith and Bubbles singing “My Sin.” and Clint and Grant warbling "Oh. keep our campus clean." and there was "St. James' Infirmary." and "Never Swat a Fly." And there was Peter White knowing more verses to "All my sins are takUN a-way." And Mary Jane Mortenscn and her mandolin. And there was "Betty Co-ed." and Katie Bostwick singing. "Never try to bind me." And Betty Shafer going down to Hupp s with her shorthand pad and playing the records over and over so she could gel all the words to all the songs. And there was "Body and Soul" . . . and of course. "Tiger Rag." "St. Louis Blues." and "Some of these Days,” "Mood Indigo." and a lot more, including memories of Hal Kemp and his Harvest Moon and his whiskey-bottle number. And "Sing, you Sinners."
And—last but not least. Guy Mitchell, telling us sorrowfully and in many verses, that "You can tempt the upper classes with your hellish demi-tasses, but Heaven will pro tect the woik-ing goil."
When we had a girls' basketball team and a boys' for that matter.

The prof who had all his classes in history and sociology and debating write papers on "marriage" the first term, got married between semesters, then gave for the second term topic "Birth control."
When everybody went to Hupp s for toasted ham sandwiches at noon, and bumming a ride down was the hardest assignment of the day.
When Doc Lincoln Gibbs would stand like Ichabod Crane, arms and legs dangling, and jerk the light off and on as he lectured.
Dr. C. C. Peters who gave double plusses and double minuses and caused the office plenty of work making out cards.

Campus Politicians Reconnoitre
Sept. 26. 10:30 a.m.
I Old cronies and adolescent aspirants convened in lower patio for casual discussion of current school afiairs today. Charles Ansil Luehl was the chairman pro tern of what may be a significant beginning to a turbulent political year.
Samuel Pierce Monroe, newly elected senator, pointed out to the group that several of last year's political antagonists had not returned to school This fact, pointed out Mr. Monroe, “will have a decided effect upon policies which 1 intend to bring to the wore during the current school year.” When pressed for an answer as to the manner in which the changes mentioned by Monroe would affect his plans, the senator elect declined to comment.
Embryo Politicians Souyht
Sept. 30, 8:45 p.m.
From authoritative sources it was learned today that fraternity lenders of the school are more determined than ever before to pledge likely candidates for prominent campus positions.
At both the Phi Alpha and Pi Chi headquarters, eager escort attempted to make rushecs feel at ease during what is thought to have become one of the most hectic scries of rushing activities ever experienced at the University of Miami. Lawrence Krlandor Lewis and William Rogct Shillington, political bosses of the respective organizations were active participants in the formalities, publicity representatives said.
C Phi Epsilon Pi’s Harry Feller (the man who never went through a pledgeship) and Delta Sigma Kappa’s Marvin Stanley Black were quoted as being highly satisfied with developments along each of thoir fronts.
Pi Delta Sigma, at its new stronghold on Columbus Boulevard, is expected to be a strong contender for the political gravy because of having landed one Robert Alvin Iba, Miamian and a freshman at the University.
"Iba will be real competition for the campus wisenhiemers," said John Hanley Yates, Secretary of the Organization.

Class and Senate Officers take Seats
Oct. 15, 12:30 p.m.
I! Student body officers from president Harry V'etter down to Senators elect took office today amid a great show of officious dignity. Complaints were widespread at the apparent lack of information demonstrated by the "M" club in the preparation of the Freshman Manual. Alleged mispelling of names of the officers in the pamphlet were described as showing gross carelessness mixed with the ardent labors of the footballers.
Conspicuous ubsence of senators elected last spring and who failed to return to school this fall, prompted student president Vetter to call for quick notice elections by the classes to fill the vacancies. Results will be announced at a future date.
Senate Convenes Under New Leader
Oct. 15, 12:30 p.m.
First meeting of the yet unregimented senate took place, in rather flattering manner for that usually violent body, under the inexperienced gavel of 1936 student leader Harry Vetter.
Lack of furious arguments between the various members of the group was explained by one veteran senator as being due to the great number of new senators who have not yet learned the rudiments of the occupation.
From all appearances, Denny Leonard, leader of much discussion last year, will continue to be the floor leader.
Behr Becomes Boss
Oct. 17. 12:30 p.m.
C Long promised, the freshman elections took place at noon today. Jack Behr of the Delta Sigma Kappa aggregation, an odds on favorite, captured the position of president of the freshman class.
Lack of effective organization in other groups brought on a landslide toward the popular New-Yorker.
C John Qunicy Lambeth, product of the Phi Alpha syndicate, was the other candidate to go into office with even a comfortable margin of votes. Lambeth Is to be one of the freshman senators.Managed by officious upper classmen and the entire repetoire of the Honor Court, the elections proceeded in u manner quite different from last year when order was impossible.
Already, however, discontent over the results is brewing.
Belated Bomb Bursts
Oct. 17. 2:30 p.m.
4 Robert Pcrcivnl Callaghan, star political advisor of the Pi Chi aggregation, made a flat statement today accusing the student officer with having run off the Freshman election on the spur of the moment without giving him a chance to organize his forces within the ranks of Pi Chi.
Surrounded by hi cohorts. Robert Hiram Wente and Robert Derby Doster. Mr. Callaghan announced, "we didn’t even know the election was to be run off this week and consequently half our fellow weren't there."
Accompanying Mr. Callaghan and his vociferous plea were several young hopefuls which he had been diligently preparing for participation in campus politic . They, according to Mr. Callaghan, could easily have routed all opposition put up to thwart them if they had been informed of the election in time to have presented themselves.
Several Phi Alpha brothers, when approached by Mr. Callaghan on the subject, vehemently denied that they had agreed to any kind of political alliance against any other group. Callaghan based his suspicion on the fact that the Phi Alphu machine had come off a good deal better than his own in the recent election.
Developments in the case are promised within the next few days. In the meantime Mr. Callaghan and his assorted yes men, to nil appearances, will continue their campaigning up and down the halls in an attempt to stir up student opinion on the outcome of the always scandalous Freshman elections.
Representatives of Lambda Phi, Delta Tau, .eta Phi and other female political juggernauts, as well as those of Delta Sigma Kappa, and Pi Delta Sigma, the male associations for the advancement of political affiliations, had not been contacted at a late hour today.
Venerable Harry Vetter, mogul of student government, refused to comment on the affair.
Oct. 21, 12:00 noon.
(! From the officinl channels of the student senate word came unexpectedly today that all discussion and protests on the Freshman election were to be dropped without further delay.
The senate, in formal meeting, declared the

flections valid because notices had been distributed to the various professors asking them to notify the Freshman class of the mooting that resulted in the victory of a new crop of Freshman and their subsequent introduction into the realm of University politics.
General consensus of opinion seems to agree with the action taken by the Senate.
Senate Sits in Solemn Session
Nov. 21, 12:30 p.m.
After a reading of the minutes of the last meeting which consumed at least five minutes of the valuab.e time usually used by the irate body for its lunch, David Hugo Hendrick was officially inserted as Business Manager of the 1036 Ibis by the student Senate.
Deliverance of rather vehement opinion by the various scholastic legislators on the business at hand marked an otherwise placid approval of Mr. Hendrick's application for the position of money handler of the annual publication.
This action pluces the entire responsibility for the success or failure of the Annual upon the shoulders of the aforesaid Hendrick and Miss Mao Louise Dorn who was selected some time ago by the Senate to the position of editor-in-chief of the book.
"I will do my best to scrape together enough money to put out a decent book," said Mr. Hendrick. To which one of the senators replied, "He ought to with a fund of almost $2,000 as a starter." The "fund" in question is that which the student body at the suggestion of Harry Feller, the Hurricane Man, voted to voluntarily give to the Ibis staff. A total of three dollars or, one dollar at the beginning of each semester, is charged each and every student who registers at the University as a result of the landslide of votes received in favor of this procedure at the General Student Body elections last May.
Hanson Has Honor
Jan. 8, 12:30 p.m.
Failure of Mary Louise Dorn to return to school this term brought about the election of I.-abella Thomas Hanson to the office of editor-in-chief of the Ibis. The election was conducted at the regular bi-monthly meeting of the Student Senate today.
"Mary Louise did not want to slight us," said president Harry Vetter, “she merely received a better offer somewhere else."
There was no one to oppose the approval of Miss Hanson and she was voted in unanimously.

4 Floor lender Dennis Michnel Francis Leonard of the Senate almost caused the regular meeting of that body to be broken up in n riot of lnughter today when he loudly demanded adjournment of the meeting ho he could go to lunch.
Staring moodily out of the window, which is quite unlike his usual behavior during a prolonged Senate meeting, Mr. Leonard suddenly boomed forth a motion for adjournment. The motion, because of the manner in which it was delivered, was considered out of order by the body but not before an explosion of merriment shook the well attended meeting and well fed legislators.
Mr. Leonard, upon the failure of his motion, lapsed back into his disinterested study of the surrounding landscape.
Senators Severely Chastized
Mar. 4, 12:30 p.m.
€i Late and absent Senators were severely reprimanded today by president Harry Vetter of the Senate for their continued lack of attendance which has, in the recent past resulted in a subsequent poor attendance at Senate meetings.
Hereafter, according to Mr. V'etter, members who are absent for three consecutive meetings without a valid excuse will be automatically suspended from active affiliation with the body.
Feb. 2. 12:30 p.m.
f Hurricane’s Harry Feller was today summoned before the senate to answer charges that the Hurricane, student publication, was not being circulated in the proper manner.
When pressed by senator John Charles Girt-man as to the reason for this defect, Mr. Feller told the body that he did not have active charge of distributing the paper.
He was immediately given full charge of and responsibility for the weekly distribution of the organ.
Mr. Feller further testified that, due to certain unusual circumstances, he and his staff have not been able to print the paper on time on several occasions.

Miami's Oldest Daily Newspaper''ortrait a Student at llu inter Institute
I—I Ihk student comes in early and walks up towards the front of the Auditorium, so that Dr. Lowe will lx certain to see him.
-I He sits down in the second row and turns four seats up to reserve for someone whom he will choose later. He turns around in his seat to scan the audience at two minute intervals in order to see and lx- seen by new arrivals. Time drags tin and the student turns his mind into creative channels. "Why don’t they have the Melodians" come in and play. “The Music Goes Round and Round," or something before the lecture? ... Why can't the dramatic class put on a skit during this period . . . why doesn't some one suggest it ?" he says to himself.
He gets up and goes over to chat with a friend, when he is sure that the friend isn't coming over to him. They tell each other how good the last lecture was and how chilly it is now; then after agreeing that Hauptman should lx killed they separate. Our victim returns to his seat and adds two more seats to his reserve collection to make up for one that has been taken during his absence. He has noted that l)r. Hriggs has seated himself several rows back, so he opens his history liook. which is brought for just such an occasion and peruses it with diligence for three minutes. A large society-looking woman has taken one of his seats, another is soon wrested from him by his Economics teacher. The student searches frantically through his possessions for his liook on Accounting, and fails to find it. He turns hi head around and nods in desperation at everyone who comes down the aisle in hope of attracting them to the remaining vacant seats before his Chemistry instructor gets one of them. He does manage to land a pretty co-ed who sits next to him. He forgets about the other seats while playing game after game of “tit-tat-toe" with her: (on her paper).
He sees the Lecturer go in at the stage entrance with Dr. Lowe and says, "Well, the lecture is due to start now within an hour or two 1 suppose." He sees the Lecturer and Chairman seat themselves on the stage. He hears the introduction, laughs, then automatically flutters the pages, and clicks the clasps on his notebook, and scrambles
around in his pocket for a pen. He poises the pen above a page and leans forward slightly, to catch the ‘golden words of wisdom' which he knows will not issue (in the first sentence) from the speaker's lips. After five minutes more of the lecture he draws a little flower on the border of his page and writes down the title of the lecture, very carefully. Three minutes later he writes the Lecturer's name down decisively. He examines the curtain behind the speaker, his shoes, and socks, and goes into a reverie about socks. He wonders why men must wear socks when girls don't. The Speaker is telling a joke. The student wakes up in time to hear, and copy it. N’ext he draws small sketches of the Speaker's nose here and there on the page. More lecture: while the student finds his English Instructor, Mr. Leary. (It's funny how Instructors stand out in a crowd, if you have not done well under their supervision.) The student observes Mr. Leary's attentive countenance. “Gee. what concentration!" he says to himself. "All these Instructors arc learning new stuff to spring on us tomorrow ... He turns back around in his seat and looks at the notes of the girl who sits next to him, and compares their length with his own. He i; debating with himself whether her finger nails would look better with less red polish on them, when he notices that everyone has begun writing. He grabs a few stray words coming from the direction of the platform as they go flowing by his tired ears, and copies them down. "Gosh. I've •gotta' either get more notes down or copy somebody's elses," he thinks, “I wonder if Dr. Lowe reads those darn papers we have to write?” He next tries to determine how many lectures he can afford to miss, and yet pass the course. “Well, the Speaker has two more jokes to go, it's about quitting time. Ten minutes and we will be dismissed and will stand around on one leg and chew the ‘rag’ al out how dam good the Iaxrture was.”
He rivets his attention on the Speaker and says to himself. “Well, I suppose most of these people get a lot out of it -it’s worth twice the money just to see these big shot but for me- "
The student turns over a page and writes the composition that you have just read.PRINTERS OF THE IBIS FOR NINE SUCCESSIVE YEARS PRINTERS OF THE MIAMI HURRICANE PRINTERS O F T H E A L U M N I Q U A R T E R L Y.

The college 'Dink' is a conspicuous piece of highly colored impudence in the form of a cap, administered to freshmen to cure cases of pride. One ‘Dink,’ taken before, and after breakfast (and at all times in between) is guaranteed to cure all cases of conceit and dignity any fresh-mnn may have formerly possessed.
The 'Dink' is a badge of inexperience, a symbol of ignorance, it is a ‘caste’ indicator, labeling the wearer as one of the members belonging to the species of the humble.
The freshman, upon entering school on the first day is told that he must secure a ‘Dink’ and wear it night and day, for an indefinite period of time. The freshman on the first day is a proud creature, a haughty human, who will not be tied to the post of tradition and will not be haltered by any ‘Dink’ (until the next day). The freshman enrolled in the school to work—not to clown—he will not submit to the indignity of donning the fatal and inevitable ‘Dink.’
He finds, upon entering school the next day that his resolutions have been shaken somewhat. However he sees that there are other freshmen whom have not assumed the stamp of the ‘Frosh’ and he gains courage. How fine it is for him to walk down the hall, and into the rooms with a dignified and intelligent air—submissive to no one—while all around, the ‘Dink’ wearing ‘Rats’ are scraping, bowing, and lighting cigarettes for the 'Upper Classmen. How glorious it is to be mistaken for a senior, both by ones fellow freshmen and the 'Upper Classmen’ as well.
At this point in the chrysalis development of a ‘Dink’ wearer all murmurs of a ‘Vigilance Committee’ seem weak and far off. But soon these sounds grow louder, they increase in velocity, and significance, until suddenly the winds of fateSTAFFORD CALDWELL

hurl tho unfortunate ’Non Dink wearer into the jaws of the stern court of the ‘Vigilance Committee’ where he is met with open arms—and ammunition in the form of swinging paddles. He does not see the ‘boiler in the boiler-room, but he feels the heat and Sees the steam arise from burning paddles.
This ceremony initiates the ‘Non Dink wearer' into the ranks of the ‘Dink wearers.’ He decides, that, after all he doesn’t object to the ‘Dink' so very much; and. besides, the ‘Dink’ does keep the hair out of one’s eyes.
Yes, the ‘Dink’ is a mighty ruler, a severe taskmaster, and a powerful subjector. but it has also, a grand sense of humor.
CLASSROOM OF THE MR
There arc not many universities that can boast a radio program. But for five years our university has presented an ether-picture of the work we nre doing to the public.
The classroom of the air began with the broadcast in room 280, padded to improve the acoustics. With the exception of one musical program it consisted of talks by the professor And, of course, the theme song was the Alma Mater played by Evelyn Plagman Jones. Miss Jones has been with the Classroom of the Air since shortly after it first went on the air.
