The this of 1940 utterly fails the fulfillment of these two requirements. There is neither theme nor dedication lurking anywhere among these pages. Early in September, theme-thoughts l egan jumping around in the minds of the editorial staff members; however, none of those themes were any more real than the dream of an opium-eater. Since November, the problem of dedication has been batted around by all with no results. Many individuals were mentioned, but none could be agreed upon; many ethereal subjects were broached, but all were fantastic. After much serious pondering on these two questions of supreme importance, the Ibis simply decided not to have either. The Ibis respects tradition and custom and is not trying to be different. The absence of theme and dedication will not ruin the book. So, what if there is a deviation from the customary? Perhaps lack of ingenuity on the part of the editor is responsible for this transgression. but. nevertheless, the Ibis, without theme or dedication stands alone.THE UNIVERSITYTRUSTEES JOHN' THOM HOLDSWORTH BOWMAN' F.

WESTTO THE CLASS Of 1940: This is the largest graduating class in the history of the institution. You come from homes more widely distributed geographically than those of any other class. As you take up your life work, that too will be more diversified than has ever l een the case with any other class. Hut you do have much in common. You have s|K nt four years at the University of Miami. You have a code which must l)e a synthesis of all that has been said and done in the classroom and on the campus. You are intelligent or you would not be here. You are reasonably industrious and will become more so. You have mental and moral integrity. You will be successful because intelligence, industry, and integrity are by far the most important elements that make for success in any business or profession. The world will not turn over its most important work to you at once, but as the years go on you will have a more and more important place in the operation of affairs. In the meantime you have the priceless possession called youth. Don't fret and fume about tomorrow and next year. Exercise your intelligence by industry, guard your natural mental and moral integrity, and you are sure to have a useful, interesting. happy, and contented life. And this above all is what we desire for you. 8. F. A SHE, PresidentTHE COLLEGES ■ The University of Miami is a whole, whose parts consist of the various colleges. I.inking the colleges is tremendously advantageous to the student who desires a greater knowledge in all fields, rather than a one-sided, more limited education. Through its curriculum and with the full cooperation of the faculty, the University of Miami is striving and will continue to strive towards unity. The College of Liberal Arts has progressed and expanded under the guidance of Dean Henry S. West. Founded in 1926, the demands of a rapidly growing student body have forced the Liberal Arts College to offer new courses and new types of courses. bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees are offered by the Liberal Arts college. The courses (calling to these degrees include general and survey-type courses, and more advanced research and specialization work. 'The varied program of collegiate work includes the following: English, History and the Social Studies. Modern Languages, Psychology, Dramatics, Journalism. Mathematics, Philosophy, N'atural Sciences. Art. Public Speaking, and Education. Two-year curricula in Pre-Law, Pre-Medical, and Pre-Engineering may be arranged. A Marine Zoolog)' course is offered by the Science Department. This course is indeed unique, as very few universities in the United States arc prepared to present the student with a course in marine life. Tropical Forestry is also offered, and proves a splendid opportunity for the layman to learn something concerning the subject. Specialized courses in the various scientific fields are amply cared for, and interest the technically minded students. The Psychology Department of the University of Miami has been progressing steadily under the capable leadership of Miss Georgia M. Barrett. A well-equipped laboratory will In ready for the first group of psychology majors next semester. A major will be offered by the Psychology Department, in addition to several fascinating new courses. Next year’s students will be able to study Experimental Psycholog)', Clinical Psycholog)', and a course in Tests and Measures; and the varied studies already part y’ifmrtc reoipto r'' t nin "v. rjV- t» ni cv: Mu Jnf(. , j., lhter£SJu of the Psycholog)' Department s curriculum. The Dramatics Department of the University continues to lie as distinctive as it has in the past. It is constantly growing, achieving new heights, and receiving new acclaim for its accomplishments. Students not only learn to speak their lines, but also receive training in actually putting on plays. Original one-act plays written by students in Mr. Fred Koch’s playwriting class were produced this year and presented in the ( ardlward Iheatre. Practical experience is also gained by students engaged in designing and constructing sets and costumes. The art of make up is acquired by all dramatic school students, to further their already extensive opportunities for knowledge and exj ericncc in the dramatic field. The Winter Institute of Literature, a feature of the English Department, was founded by the late Professor Orton Lowe, and has been ably carried on by Walter Scott Mason, jr. for the past three years. The Institute has brought many outstanding literary figures to the University, to the delight of both students and faculty, and also residents of neighlM ri ng communi t ies. The long awaited, much planned for, major in Journalism will be given next year. More courses will lx offered, and students will Ik given the opportunity for practical work in newspaper writing. I his will hi accomplished through the cooperation of Miami newspapers, for which our students will 14Mlw Hrrihn F'nlrr, l r. John Tlx Mil Il l,l w«r1h, I r. Ilfliry S. Wo I, und l r.

Bachelor of Science degrees and two-year normal school certificates are offerer! by the School of Education, headed by Dean Henry S. West. I)r. West has capably led the School of Education to great heights in the past, and continues in charge of this expanding section of the University. The work of the School of Education is recognized by the Florida State Department of Education for issuance of teaching certificates without state examination. The School of Business Administration was limited to a few courses in Economics and Government in 1926, when John Holdsworth became Dean. Previously connected with such universities as Princeton, Pittsburgh, and Pennsylvania, Dean Holdsworth 's exjKTiencc in the business field has enabled him to know what the business world desires in its younger executives. During his administration, numerous courses have been added to the curriculum, and provision has been made for students interested in specialization. Discussions and lectures by representatives from local concerns enlarge the regular program of text book study and class room work. This has given students a practical outlook, by permitting them to become acquainted with members of the world they will become part of after graduation. The Law School is credited with the distinction of offering the first professional courses at the University. Organized in 1926, the I.aw School gained recognition from the Supreme Court of Florida, after concerted efforts made by the first dean—Richmond Austin Rasco. The present dean. Russell A. Rasco, has been carrying the splendid work of his father on to even greater heights. Today. graduates of the School of I .aw of the University of Miami will l e licensed and admitted without examination to practice law in the courts of Florida, provided they arc 21 years old, and are of good moral character. The Law School of the University aims to give the students a broad conception of law. a thorough historic liackground. and a knowledge of basic, technical legal procecdure. The fame of the Music School of the University has spread across the country, so that the excellent work carrier! on by Dean Bertha Foster and her assistants is not by any means overlooked. Begun in 1926, the Music School has developer! rapidly and affords the music student superb preparation for both concert work anrl teaching. An atmosphere of deep respect and sincere love for music has l)een instilled so extensively, that a fine appreciation for music has pervaded throughout the University and affected all students. Under the remarkably capable guidance of Miss Foster, the Music School sturlents have come to take pride in their work and have derived enjoyment and encouragement for their life's undertaking. 15Administrators ■ The administrative functions of the University of Miami are ably performed by the administrators. These officials are Dr. Jay F. W. Pearson, Secretary of the University and Dean of Administration; Miss Mary B. Merritt. Dean of Women; Dr. John 'thorn Holdsworlh, Treasurer and Dean of the School of Business Administration; Mr. Harry H. Provin. Registrar; Mr. Foster E. Alter, Assistant Registrar; and Mr. U. J. Hiss, Business Manager. Although Dr. Pearson’s work now is mostly concerned with administrative duties, it is he who attracted so much attention to the University by starting the Marine Zoolog)- course here. As Secretary, he acts as an intermediate between Dr. Ashe and the faculty. He works with the faculty committee, supervising its progress. Included in his work is the scheduling of courses, and solving problems of appointments, the bulletin, interviews. University correspondence, and coordination among the departments. Miss Merritt has proven to Ik one of the most important persons in the lives of the women students at the University. Her understanding and guidance has helped to solve many of the problems of the girls. She very carefully supervises the academic work of the women students. Her vocational guidance has aided many girls to choose a suitable program and then follow the program successful’)-. Mr. Provin is an important contact between the University and prospective students. Inquiries con- cerning the University and its entrance requirements are handled through his oftice. He does not lose contact with the students after they have enrolled, as he is responsible for the credits and grades earned by the students, and supplies them with information about the courses and requirements necessary for obtaining the various degrees offered by the University. The finances of the University have l een entrusted to the care of Mr. Hiss. Business Manager. Mr. Hiss is well-qualified for that position as he was assistant treasurer and auditor for six years. The budgets of all the departments are the responsibility of Mr. Hiss, who prepares them and then offers them to Dr. Ashe and his staff, by whom they are modified or approved. His task is a large one, including supervision of the accounting of the expenditures and income of the University. Abovr, VKn Mat)' H. Merritt. V. J. Ills , and l»r. J« F. W. I’mrson. 11 low.

The dictators are the prosecuting attorney. The counsel for the defense is making every sacrifice not only to convince the world’s conscience (which is the jury), but the prosecutors themselves. The success of this effort is dependent upon more than military success; it is dependent upon democracy’s successful operation in every endeavor. We. the active participants, must know what democracy does mean, and what it should mean. Is it idealism or is it practicalism ? Neither theory is an answer to the democratic system: idealism is beyond the reach of man's imperfection and weaknesses; practicalism falls short of the goal; it is chaotic and formless; therefore, applied democracy is a fusion of the two. Democratic government, to be efficient and to fulfill its purposed objectives, must be rendered the guidance of intelligent and open-minded persons whether in a college or in a national state. Only when the most gifted individuals in the University are selected for the Student Association offices can the student body direct, improve, and enjoy the activities of college life and Itecome more enlightened in regard to the responsibilities they must assume in their respective communities a few years in the future. It is common knowledge that all | eop1e are prone to neglect many of their im| ortant functions and entirely disregard their very pertinent privileges. Only through a practical as well as theoretical participation in affairs may people justify themselves. In the forms of democratic government this is especially true, and an excellent place for young people to learn how to play an intelligent | art is in the colleges and universities. All senate meetings are open to any students who may wish to attend. In this way, the students are given the opportunity to ascertain just how well their representatives are functioning. While students at the University do show an interest in student government, there is still a lack of real interest in many cases. If conduct of the student officers and the association is to improve. the students must have an active part and see that there is improvement. An interest in a knowledge of student government affairs intensifies one's enjoyment of school. It brings the students closer together and causes them to work for the benefit of all students. A student should know the powers and duties of the various departments of the student government, for knowing what is right will create a desire for a strong and efficient government. By taking advantage of our democratic system of government the students 18can secure training and experience in self-government. Here, at the University of Miami, student government is the manifestation of that great ideal. The student body, since 1926. has conducted its own affairs in an efficient, democratic manner, and has, with minor exceptions, constantly sought to raise the standards of this government. Those minor exceptions were a result of the part played l y practical politics: it is impossible to do without this phase. To have the political sjmils system grip on whatever lies within its grasp is practically a foregone conclusion; to realize that the system does much to lower the efficiency of an organization is almost as readily recognized: but to take politics out is a serious question. The practical application of democracy is the most tangible, and sometimes the faultiest, part of the system. Nomination for election to Student Association offices is by | etition. The president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer are then elected in secret ballot from and by the student body at large. These officers make up the executive department. The judicial department is the Honor Court, composed of six associate justices from the school at large, a chief justice and prosecuting attorney from the School of Law, and a clerk appointed by the chief justice. The associate justices, chief justices, and prosecuting attorney are elected in the same manner as the executive officers. The legislative department is the Senate, composed of three senators from the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior classes, representing the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Music, and the School of Business Administration: and three senators representing the School of Law. All are elected from and by the members of each class. The duties of the executive officers are identical with the duties performed by those officers in any governmental organization. The duties of the Honor Court are divided into two phases. The penal jurisdiction of the court includes the hearing and determining of all cases arising out of a breach of the Honor Code and violation of laws made by the Senate or members of the executive department. The civil jurisdiction is to pass U| on the constitutionality of any law of the Student body, Senate or decree of the President. The chief work of the Stu- dent Senate is the allotment of the student activity fund. This year, the Student Association succeeded in obtaining a permanent senate room for meetings and holding elections. This senate chamber has now been furnished with files, desks, and chairs. The Student Association is a member of the Florida Student Government Association, composed of similar bodies in the universities and colleges of the State of Florida. This year, the University held the office of Alternate President of the organization, which ratified a new constitution at the 1940 convention. The 1941 state Student Government Convention will be held at the University of Miami. This will afford our student body as a whole the opportunity for more acquaintance with Student Government affairs. If the student body is to continue to have the free power in governing its affairs that it has had in the past and holds today, the students must continue to show an ever-increasing interest in the student government. Ray Fordham served as president of the student body this year; Charlotte Meggs was vice-president; Dorothy Ashe, secretary: and Hob Hillstead, treasurer. Associate Justices of the Honor Court were: !.cwis Dorn. Hill Varrington. Hetty Lou Baker, Jane Johnson, Lloyd Whyte, and Harry Jacobsen. Hny Ford hum, I'rcuUImt 19Assnriatrb ffiribgiat Jfrrss uf 5J.

The Hurricane ■ This year ihe Hurricane reached an all time high in Hurricanism — more errors, more good stories muffed, more inefficiency, more enemies, and more fun. A general view of the Hurricane reveals that it took on the usual small quota of students who really intended to do something about it. Once this year the Hurricane came out by 12:30 Friday. It suffered through an abnormally long period of adjustment; after two months of juggling, the masthead finally settled down. Regular contributors were so preoccupied with enchanting each other with “sharp” remarks and actions they scarcely had time to prepare their choice humor for publication. So the Hurricane as it is. Mechanical changes also took place this year. A nice, neat hole was cut in the office wall so the Ibis could share the phone. It is kept on the Hurricane side mostly because notices from the business office requesting that the number of personal calls be reduced are addressed to the Hurricane. In spite of all notices it is purely a communistic phone. Half the words spoken in the office are in explanation of the phone situation; half the words spoken arc ignored. Some day the Hurricane is going to awaken its crusading spirit and campaign to exterminate phone moochcrs. Then what will the music school do? The walls of the office have increased in value for they have become a source of student opinion (biased). The numerous pictures have been fully captioned and annotated; the bulletin board has l een well marked with sage bits. Along with mechanical additions we might as well add sound effects. These are produced by Al Collins. Since Al has devoted his all to radio there has been no peace in the Hurricane office. He goes there to practice and collect news briefs for his scripts. He tries to glean criticisms and pointers for his announcing. Now for the stories during the year that showed possibilities. First off there was the Hospitalization plan. The Hurricane really went crusading for a few issues, but the plan and story just fizzled out. The election story would have been swell meat but it came in the Hooeycane. We had some fun with Gracie Allen and her "Surprise Party." But if only the Senate had impeached the student government president that would have lx en the story. There's only one way to attempt to understand how the staff achiever! the new degree of Hurricanism. Take any week of the Hurricane year and analyze it. After picking the week apart one is amazed that the amazing Hurricane ever makes an appearance. Monday, the entire staff looks chipper and has intentions of getting things off early this week. The first day is devoted to getting into the mood. Corky Corrigan, managing editor, spends by far the most time getting in the mood. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday he spends three solid hours of the morning in the office translating two pages of French. He is there to receive, with special Corrigan grace, all visitors and phone calls. He calmly sits by and watches the Hurricane public dash in and out (mostly out) while he absorbs the atmosphere that is most conducive to his type of work. Monday morning, Franklin, editor, wheezes into the office, gasps out what he thinks alx ut it all, and wheezes out again. The office is deserted at an early hour in the afternoon. A few staff meml ers move over to the Ibis office to attend an imitation of a Monday staff meeting. Thus Monday goes by uneventfully in the way of copy (except for B.S.U. news). By Tuesday, maybe three staff members are in the mood to produce. If these three exert enough pressure they can force a little copy out of numerous writers. Late Tuesday afternoon the office is in 20rjnuil CorriKun growl Into Ihr telephone ait Jim Jeffrey ■iinlUnli- on the pouilbllltlr of IKiroth) livin' lntr l production an wu trba»krt lining. a fury of activity. Both typewriters, the Hurricane veteran and the one snatched from the Ibis office, are being battered. From 2:30 to 6:00 Corky sits close beside one, swinging his keys and waiting for inspiration (he's strictly an inspiration guy). The ever busy typewriters furnish a legitimate excuse for columnists when they hand their copy in on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. By five o’clock Corky has definitely decided what his contribution to the editorial page will be. notes the time, and decides to write it on the morrow. On the whole Tuesday ekes out a fair number of frail bits of editorial copy. Once all the copy for page two was turned in Tuesday. Wednesday is still the great day of activity. Things remain unchanged in the office. The copy basket serves its purpose while Corrigan does his French. This is the day Red Estersohn, dubiously dubbed the "man with the green mustache." darts in and out getting reactions on his latest music criticism. After one of his concert reviews has lieen blindly slashed his artistic feelings are soothed by the declaration, “You'd be music editor if we had one.” Wednesday afternoon from 1:30 on the staff members remove themselves to the print shop. Franklin s countenance beams and beams through the hours until he is forced to realize that some people just won't get copy in. Then activities on his fingernails becomes furious. He puses every few minutes to liounce his head between his hands and wail. Freshmen Preston and Levin take their journalism seriously and really apply themselves when they reach the shop. When things get a little slow Dotty devotes some time to cmbc|lishing Webster’s work. She concocts most grandilixjuent words. Her pet duty is reviewing plays; sloe's drama critic junior. Also she is a minor whiz at writing heads that fit. Elaine and Dotty work as a pair. They seem to think of the same thing at the same time. If Dotty needs a word or an idea Elaine supplies it and vice versa. Elaine writes her own stories and re-writes other people’s contributions. Between them they turn out a fair portion of the pper. Desperation crowds Linrothe, co-sprts editor, into a corner. Always there is not enough sports copy written. Girls intramurals is the most consistent delinquent on the page, not to mention I.inrothe's column. Linrothe’s sidekick. Jim Jeffrey, is always on hand to do an odd job. He is the one who maintains the friendly relationship between the Hurricane and the load papers. Each Wednesday afternoon he takes a jaunt to town and politely extracts necessary cuts from the morgues of the daily ppers. When the editorial page is a few inches short Jeff is ready to slip into any role and produce a letter to the editor about anything. His official capacity is Circulation Manager. He hauls copies of the Hurricane from the print shop to places where no one can find them. Charles Chester Baake. our rosy, burly business manager, usually drops in the shop to inform Mr. Ilurrlcanluii at II bright a Ihr »tnff lulu action twenty minute nflrr Ihr paper I »lippo c ! lu havr gone to pre ». 21Franklin that he will l e after him at two to take him home. Baake is a self-appointed nursemaid to Franklin. However, not even Baake's tender care can keep Franklin from eating nothin ' hut pastry with pineapple tilling for Wednesday supj er. Besides his caretaking job Baake also is in charge of advertising copy for the Hurricane. Just after the weekly Hurricane social hour is Over Helene Putnam buzzes into the shop. She's all business and turns out copy double-quick; that is, after waiting two hours to nab a typewriter. She lingers long enough to type Seymour Simon’s, honorary co-sports editor, latest plea for baseball. Another Hurricane convert is Margaret Klotz, who holds down the glamour job. She’s scenery and romance. She writes features and gets called “Maggie” in the headline every week. After calling Franklin six limes on Wednesday afternoon to assure him he has a big scoop for the front page, Jacques Wilson swoops in about 10:30 and lustily declares that he has not even the ghost of a story. Having heard Wilson's choice explanations. one by one the staff members depart, and leave Franklin to bounce his head alone and to give vent to his passion for paragraphs. We’ve heard that this goes on until two or three in the morning. ViMlirr version at Hurryvtrriu; Ihlv lime with tire Impot-ftlblr otnfte u-ltinK "f almost the entire »lulT gathered urouinl the vtonr. Thursday is devoted to odds and ends and mechanical details: make up, heads, proofs, and filling up holes that will sneak in. Twelve-thirty ticks by unnoticed; it is no longer a significant time in Hurricane production. Everyone relaxes and the pper goes leisurely on. By 4:30 the first copies are off the press. Corky and Jeff, after groaning over glaring errors, station themselves in the rear of the shop and insert the chocolate filling. So the Hurricane makes it appearance approximately at 5:30. Friday the staff steels itself to withstand the verbal blows of student readers. No week goes by without some mishap that won't be overlooked. This public reaction doesn't effect the staff seriously. Rather late additions to the Hurricane staff this year were Richard “Bubblenose" Paige, Fred Nesbitt, and John I). Kendall, the first and last being sports writers. Paige played junior varsity tennis and was on Mr. Head's softball team; therefore, he wrote those two events consistently. Kendall took over football and boxing when the remainder of the staff became reluctant about frequenting the gym and athletic office, while Nesbitt was publicity director for the TKPs and the Debate Council. 22Futile Forensics ■ A flexible membership system and an extensive schedule of debates made the competitive spirit of the varsity deleters stronger than usual this year. Guided by debate coach Dr. Charles Doren Tharp, the inter-school and practice debates were hard-fought battles. According to the new system members were eligible to try out for the varsity and freshman debate teams throughout the year. At any time members of either team could be challenged for their right to remain on that team by an applicant for the position. The contest for the place then would ! e held at the next practice debate and the winner would take the contested place in the team leaving the loser the chance to challenge again. The varsity debate team remained almost intact throughout the year. The memliers of the first squad (of whom four were selected to go on the barn-storming tour) were Irving Lebowitz, junior; Hen Axelroad, Jr., sophomore: Claud Corrigan, sophomore; Lloyd Whyte, junior; Jerome Weinkle, senior, Law School; and Lawrence Ropes, senior. On the affirmative team were Axelroad and Corrigan, while Lebowitz and Rojh s took the negative. at the majority of the home debates. Contracting for debates with other schools using this same subject, planning the trip, and acting as chairman of all home debates was Jack Madigan, varsity debate manager. First debate of the year was with an affirmative team from the University of Richmond, in which Irving Lebowitz. and Laurence Ropes. Miami’s speakers for the negative, were defeated. The contest was held in this year's debate headquarters, the assembly room of the administration building, February 29. Miami's negative team took on and defeated St. Petersburg Junior College Friday. March 15. Debaters for this contest were Jerome Weinkle and Lawrence Ropes, the latter a substitute for Irving Lebowitz. The next week. March 18, two non-decisions were debated with Rollins College. Hen Axelroad, Claud Corrigan. Jerome Weinkle. and Lawrence Ropes were the speakers for Miami. Axelroad and Corrigan were again the sjieakers for Miami at the debate lto| c , OirrlK»». Ubowlti, Wrinkle, m»l xrlro il »lun l Ml thr debater ' en garde poxltlun. with the University of Pennsylvania. Miami won this debate. Another decision debate which went against the varsity was the one held on March 29 against a girl’s team from the University of Vermont. Irving Lebowitz, who took Claud Corrigan's place on the affirmative team, and Hen Axelroad were adjudged the losers. Vermont was the last home debate before the barnstorming tour which is a feature of varsity debating every year. The schedule included colleges in the southern states, with four in Florida, two in Alabama, and three in Georgia. The first debate of the trip was with Rollins College which was held April 15. The debaters then went to Gainesville, to battle the University of Florida. Next stop on the schedule was Atlanta, where for the only time during the trip, the debaters met two schools in one day. During the afternoon of April 18, they went to Athens, where their foe was the University of Georgia. That evening they spent in Atlanta debating a team from Kmory University. April 19 the Squad met Hirmingham-Southern University, in Hirmingham, and from there trekked on to Tuscaloosa where they battled the University of Alabama. April 20. They spent a day in travel and met Florida State College for Women at Tallahassee, April 22. The remaining two debates of the trip were with Florida-Southern College, Lakeland, and St. Petersburg Junior College.

At the University there is a black sheep. One so black that it presents a more than usual depressing picture amid so much color and scenic beauty as there is in Mi-ami. This poor, unwanted bird is one of the official publications of the University- The his. Shunned and scorned by all—until about the 15th of May when it is demanded by everyone—the Ibis has a hard struggle. No one has a kind word for it. Faculty and students avoid any connection with it. The Ibis is just a necessary evil; something to struggle for itself; something the Univerity seems to feel it must have but with the least possible trouble. This must lx? true if one can judge from circumstantial evidence. Never has there been anything to equal the working facilities given the Ibis by the University. One of the better rooms on the second floor of the Main Building, from which there is a splendid view of one angle of the triangle facing on the patio, is for the exclusive use of the staff. This room was very simply but adequately furnished. One battered desk, gotten from the Hurricane in a trade; four chairs, one with no back and another with only three out of four legs: a long table: one wastebasket ; and a filing cabinet. By the way, the cabinet is a very tricky contraption. It is made out of cardboard with some brown-painted tin on the front. There were quite a few puzzling hours of work involved in putting this thing together. The cardboard had to be folded into shape and held that way by metal plugs and adhesive tape. In addition to this office furniture two typewriters were in use—one in the Hurricane office and one in the Ibis. The University couldn't supply the machines so the Ibis rented them. The Ibis couldn't even get ribbons for the typewriters from the University. This problem was solved by taking the ribbon from the machine in the Hurricane office; some slight confusion resulted from the arrangement. Then, another feature of the office was the lighting system. The staff never knew when the light would lx gone entirely. Many times ambitious people tried to work in the office only to find that the University had sent someone to lift the light fixture; but they were kind enough to leave the wires in their place. The Business staff was very pleased to find that a bulletin board had been put on the wall outside the office door for its use; however one could always go to the board and find a note from “The Black Hand” right in the middle of the list of business firms who use the invaluable Ibis for advertising. “The Black Hand” was peculiar. He turned up in the telephone, typewriters, desk, and wastebasket. There is strong evidence pointing to the identity of “ The Black Hand” but the Ibis docs not care to expose the individual. If not scared away, he'll turn up next year to gleefully haunt another staff. The question of money for publishing was an involved set-up. The Student Senate actually came through with a fine appropriation. So no kick is coming about that, but the interest shown by students in solicilating advertisements was a remarkable thing to behold. Ira Bullock, business manager, had one of the most capable, hard-working group of students ever seen. The staff wasn’t large and unwieldy at all since there was just one member— Bullock. After issuing form books to a fine bunch of confident salesmen. Bullock sat back and waited. After waiting unusually long even for a thing of this kind, he decided to call in the hounds and get a £ 24report. He issued the call but no one came. In fact, for several weeks he couldn't catch those people long enough to get his bocks back. After snagging a few books he got on the trail himself and was on it by himself the rest of the time. Now for the degree of perfection that is seldom reached on a staff from which there is no reward other than a very heartfelt appreciation for any small item of work done. This perfection was achieved by the editorial staff. The staff was divided into departments, and each one functioned with a rapidity and precision of a highly geared machine. This is how it worked. Xo one did a single thing until two weeks after it should have been. Then, a diligent student would literally bleed from some source—faculty, students, etc., the desired information. write it out madly, and turn in a delightful piece of work, oddly remindful of the days when jig-saw puzzles were in style. All joking aside, every item in the yearbook was produced in just that way. The staff would refuse to do a thing on time, the faculty and students would renege on talking for publication, and the whole thing ended up by being slammed together. Xaturallv, there was a remarkable attendance at staff meetings throughout the year. Two weekly meetings were held during the second semester until the book was on the press. When the editor finally quit going to meetings—he had to. no one else went—all pretense was over and everybody was happy. One meeting ten people attended but after Above: llopkiii and Hlnghlom debate seriously whether or not to eorrret a Rlnrlnx error In Ibis copy. Below: .1 Inrun-section of the stair works out a make-up detail. that the editor had a strange interlude with himself, since there was no one else around, twice weekly. The Ibis would like to express its appreciation to the Hurricane and its staff. From the first issue of that organ of the student body, the Ibis received some excellent publicity. If there is anything to the idea that keeping something in the public eye will attract attention, then the Ibis should be in the eye of every University student. What an inspiration those Hurricane staff mem-bers were! In the first place. Ibis staff members 25Tt»U I nut n plrturr of irrnlnl menial it rtopni«nt. All nlllon ■! like IhU vounrr or latrr. Itnpkiu I making a paper alr-plunr. were simply Hurricane workers without their leer in a great many cases. Hut perhaps the greatest inspiration that can come to man is the sight of other men working hard every minute of the day; and this was certainly true of Hurricane slaves. Yes. the year has been full of strife and scrubble. Scrubble for copy and people to work. Copy in its original form was j erfect. Of course, most of it still is that way but the beauty of those originals! Never written on but one side of the paper: plenty of margin on all sides; even,’ mistake erased neatly ami not one word or letter tyjx-d over: and all the things that go to ease the labor of copyreaders was done by each contributor. N’o one knows what the Ibis would have done without those contributors though. The)' were always generous with their time and anxious to write everything they could. Many made excellent suggestions about extra work they could do. Source writers, copyreaders. proofreaders, student photographers. in fact, every member breathed Ibis stuff from January to May. The black sheep, or more correctly, the black bird of the University has had a tough flight. However, the Ibis thrives on rough meat and refuses to lx completely grounder!. Obstacles have slowed up its trip, have caused it not to make an unsettled deadline. Hut there has been a lot of fun in an off-angle way. Inspired, would-be genius was the subject of day-to-day observations: easily hurt fee-lings showed up occasionally demanding the smoothing of ruffled feathers; ami the soothing effect of those who never worked, but watched others in such a contented way, was a Itoon to shattered nerves. One of the most awe-inspiring sights ever witnessed by Parker Art occurred on the day when the Ibis came flapping into the shop with all of its trainers. Prior to that day the shop could figure on a few days a week when there wasn't a University publication on hand, but thereafter, ever)’ day was just a fresh attack of trouble. Regardless of how little attention the students pay to the Ibis during production or to what purpose they put the Ibis after getting it. how could they and the faculty get along without the party tossed by Parker Art in celebration of another finished yearbook ? 26THE COLLEGESArt and Artists ■ High up on the third floor of the Main Building are two large rooms with great northern skylights. They are fdled with tables, easels, art supplies, a motley array of model stands, jugs, drapes, and students. To the side is a smaller room Ixxtsting a press and the smell of acids and inks. All this is the art department. The University can l e proud of its art department as a well-established and progressive unit. It was begun three years ago and since has grown in enrollment and importance. There are two divisions, directed by Denman Fink and Richard Merrick. Mr. Fink, well-known muralist and illustrator, conducts classes in life and still life and principally criticizes the mediums of charcoal, oil paint, and pastel. Mr. Merrick’s class is concerned with etching (the complete process is taught) and landscape water-coloring. This year facilities have been improved. A second studio was opened to Mr. Fink’s students for the benefit of those working in oil; they are permitted to erect their own set-up of fruit, flowers, bottles, etc. and spend as long as they like on their interpretations. Additional shelves have been installed in both rooms partially to provide space for a number of valuable art magazines. A new hallway was cut in order to direct the flow of student traffic in a channel other than the art room. The library has been enlarged with several new books. The greatest importance of the year was attached Mn lrt mill rlan Mini) rurh otltrr «hllr plmtnftrii|ilirr gr! a plrlurr of n jtroop puliillli 11 picture. to the state exhibit of the Four Arts Club in Palm Beach in December. The University was represented for the first lime with admirable results. The work of students received general acclaim in an exhibition comprised of the l est of colleges all over the state. Prizes and ribbons were bestowed as follows: Naomi Anderson, still life, first prize; Julia Arthur, portrait, second prize; John Maglcy, still life, honorable mention; Helen Spach, water color, first prize; End I Benson and Arnold Newman, etchings, honorable mention. When the operetta The Geisha was presented by the dramatics and music departments in January, Mr. Fink designed the effective backdrop. It was painted by some of the students under his direction. In March, Burdine’s store cooperated with the school by putting at Mr. Fink's disposal space for displaying the student's work. Oil paintings, including the state prize winners, by the following students were shown: Naomi Anderson, Daphne Pullan, John Maglcy, Phyllis Parman, and Julia Arthur. Students in the art department are there for several reasons. Some of them are intent on a career in one of the many fields of art and have come to gain a solid background in anatomy and media. Others are majors in academic subjects and enjoy art as a sideline or enter it to gain an appreciation of fine art. There are special students from outside the University who come for pleasure or profit. Mr. Fink allots an equal amount of time to each of his students and takes a personal interest in the individual’s technique, improvement, and ambition. The classes of Mr. Merrick are on location a considerable portion of the time drawing from the natural scenic beauty of Miami. Plans for the future of this department are constantly under way. Providing an art major and minor for those who are interested is an immediate problem, and it will be solved by the fall term of 1940. This may mean the offering of additional courses. At present the University provides a course in history of art under Mr. Merrick; several classes of educational art directed by Mrs. Adalinc S. Don-ahoo; and etching, life, and still life classes. 28The Cardboard Theatre ■ Making their first appearance this year were several new stars on the dramatics horizon. Not merely new actors were these stars, although during this year the stage has seen several, but real new features of the department including a new professor and courses pointing to the establishment of a dramatics major. The Cardboard Theatre, while not exactly a new star, made its first appearance in its new name and costume this year. A class in playwriting was inaugurated and presenter! two bills of original one-act plays to the student body. An operetta which required the talents of both the music and dramatics department was produced. More than five major plays, all of them formerly Broadway productions, were presented. The new assistant professor of dramatics and director of the Cardboard Theatre is Frederick Koch. Jr., who has A.B. and M.A. degrees from the University of North Carolina. Mr. Koch has been responsible for the introduction of a new playwriting course in the curriculum, has directed several major productions, and produced with Henry Gregor the first operetta in the history' of the school. Mrs. Opal Euard Motter is instructor in dramatics. A member of Theta Alpha Fhi. honorary' dramatics fraternity, she directs not only her quota of University players productions but also her quota of the honorary group's performances, which also appear in the Cardboard Theatre. Named by a conference of the two directors after many suggestions had been made, the “Cardboard Theatre” was a sudden inspiration of Mrs. Motter's which met with instant approval. The newly-named auditorium is the same as has been used in previous years, with many improvements. The floor at the rear of the room has l een raised making the stage completely visible from almost any angle and forming a lobby at the ! ack which accommodates intermission crowds. Among the most important, although they were "You Can't TuWr It with Yon" »« n revival hit In the f'-ard board Theatre.

Members of Mr. Koch’s class in playwriting selected the best and most practicable productions completed during the year's work and presented them at admission-free performances inviting the audience to participate by criticizing the play between the acts. The Green Dragon, written by Walter Ficldhouse and directed by Jack Madigan, and She’s a-Gonna Be a Boy, written and directed by Edith Rosencrans. were two plays featured on the earlier bill. Starring in The Green Dragon were Arnold Kay as the bartender and Myra Atkins as the former sweetheart of a night club proprietor. The scene of this play was a Miami night club. She's a-Gonna Be a Boy was set in a hospital and had as stars Robert Zeeman as Papa Chiarello and Milton DcVoe as the college professor. The Geisha was another new venture for tin-dramatics department of the University. Ojtera had come before and so had light comedy but operettas were unknown. The musical comedy by Sidney Jones, an Englishman, who. as in Giil»eri and Sullivan's Mikado, placed his libretto in Japan. The musical portion of the | erformance was directed by Mr. Henry Gregor and the acting was guided by-Mr. Koch. Dramatic and singing leads in this production were taken by Mrs. Charles M. Moon as O Mimosa San; Edwin F. Ginsburg as Reginald Fairfax; Dean Russell A. Rasco of the Law School as the Marquis Imaru: Jean Godard as Juliette: and William Gore as Wun-Hi. Delicately painted adits and delicately tinted music highlighted this production. 'fhe dramatic season oja-ned this year with You Can’t Take It With You, a revival of last year's hit. The cast was headed by Maxwell Marvin as Grandpa Y’anderhof; Adele Rickel as Penelope Sycamore; Maybelle Cohen and Eddie Baumgarten as Ed and Essie Carmichael: and George Dawkins and Irm-gard Dietcl as Tony Kirby and Alice Sycamore. C. H. Motter, who played the jxirt of Mr. De Pinna in this production, acted as technical director for every production of the Theatre this year. Directed by Mrs. Motter. this production, returned by pop-ular demand, was an outstanding success. Next in line came Our Town, Thornton Wilder's philosophic drama without scenery. Again effective was Maxwell Marvin as the stage manager whose llripltr II lilt hriii.it lea I li.ickBr.iuml ■hole KrrJrrlck It.

Mr. Koch directed the play which featured George Greer and Jean Small as George Gibbs and Emily Webb, the young sweethearts of the village. Not only was the scenery left to the imagination, according to the directions of the author, but many of the props and a few of the characters were invisible, producing an intense and ghostly effect. Theta Alpha Phi's production of The Women as directed by Mrs. Motter, was one of the hits of the year. It starred Adele Rickel as Mrs. Sylvia Fowler; double-casting Phyllis Salter and Sylvia Locke as Mrs. Stephen Haines; Jean Arnold Small as Miriam Aarons; Mabelle Cohen as Crystall Allen; Rebekah Parham as Peggy; Denise Penchina as Edith; and Man,- Alice Kirton as Nancy. The play had thirty-live actresses in its all-feminine cast. Almost even-girl in the University with serious intentions had some part in the production, and some members of the cast appeared in more than one part. The director, as a member of the honorary’ dramatics society, also took a small part in the production. Her Maggie was, of course, the outstanding bit jxirt of the year. Runner-up for that prize was Maxwell Marvin's careful delineation of Mr. Doolittle in Pygmalion. Double-casting was employed in this production too, with Grace Berg and Jean Small alternating in the | art of Eliza. George Dawkins took the role of Professor Higgins and Evelyn Auslander that of Mrs. Pierce. Carefully accented in attempted Cockney English the play was fascinating to the ear as well as to the eye. Outward Hound was the next play on the list. The play was directed by Mrs. Motter. Heading the cast was Maxwell Marvin as Tom Prior, Adele Rickel as Mrs. Midgett, George Dawkins as The Reverend Duke, Barbara Willock as Mrs. Cliveden-Banks, and Sydney Head as Scrubby. A few other plays will l e used to till the dramatic schedule for the year. Theta Alpha Phi is also making its tentative plans for the annual Follies which utilizes student talent in all forms of the theatrical arts. So far, this year has ! een one of the most important in the history of the dramatics department DRAMA CALENDAR Xovembkr Vou Can't Take It With You, by- George S.

Iw lr«w» the danln Lit. Gymnasts ■ Once more .Mr. John Erskine seems to have walked off with the popularity prize of the Winter Institute of Literature. He completely delighted his audience. The lectures were well sprinkled with his bantering, rather satirical humor. Since Mr. Er-skine’s specialty is retelling old stories in modern settings, he was on home ground speaking about The Acncid, Odyssey, Iliad, Tristram and Iscult, and Don Quixote. With his tongue in his cheek Mr. Erskine gave us his interpretations of the stories. He reached the heights in talking about The Acncid; it was by far the best lecture of the entire scries. If everyone could find in those classics what Mr. Erskine has obviously found they would not be musty classics but present best sellers. Mr. Carleton Smith found his way onto the platform again this year. How. we don't know. Last year, since he was substituting on the spur of the moment for a tardy lecturer, he was easily forgiven for the amusing drivle he spoke. He was, in fact, a pleasant surprise. However, when deliberately planning a lecture scries for an institute of literature it seems that Mr. Smith is a good man to leave out. He managed to say nothing of consequence in either of his lectures, and even his humor (?) bogged down on him. The records he played that represent samples of music’s forgotten byways are (to put it mildly) best just left to be forgotten. Mr. Smith would do well to stick to his business of writing music criticisms for Esquire. First impressions of I)r. Henry Seidel Canby were definitely not good. He was quite a sudden change and letdown from Dr. Erskine. He lacked the warmth and twinkling platform personality of his fellow lecturers. But after acoustical difficulties were cleared up we realized that here was a man who had something to say and knew exactly how he was going to say it. Mr. Canby certainly must have been a boon to students of American literature. He spoke about thinking, feeling, imagination, and values. He did not speak of vague nothings, but gave tangible information and concrete examples. He never strayed from his subject but stuck strictly to business. All this makes Mr. Canby sound terribly dull. The amazing thing is that he wasn't at all dull. With hands dug deep in his pockets he said, in a quietly explosive manner, what he hail to say in record time. Perhaps it was this regard for time that endeared Mr. Canby to the audience (students). However, a man who knows his subject as well as CjirlftiMi Smith . . . Hw|uirrS Rift to iiuimo rrlltrlMii 32Henry Selilrl 'unity . . . concrete. Inti not lull Mr. Canby evidently knows his would be an asset to any literary series. The last week of the Institute was devoted to poetry. Mr. Joseph Auslander started off the first day by hilariously amusing the audience with an anecdote about Amy Lowell. With each succeeding lecture he became less and less amusing and more and more serious until by Thursday we were ready JnM'ph Auilnmlcr nml Audrey Wiirdetnniin . . . they emote with mournful utiilerlonev Waller Scot I Mnwxi ... hr dlrrrlrU Ihr Initltutr untl Ihrtt IrU town. to weep for the lost cause of poetry. Mr. Auslander seemed to be desperately trying to convince his audience that they couldn't live fully without poetry. Almost it is the one thing that remains that can save the world from utter ruin. At times it seemed as though Mr. Auslander had to wrestle with his audience to hold their attention. His invariably, hesitant groping for a fit word to end a beautifully artificial sentence became a bit tiring. He did. indeed, emote eloquently in dramatic poetic prose. Miss Audrey Wurdemann read some of her own works. After getting accustomed to her mournful monotone we settled down to enjoy her truly lovely poetry. Mr. Auslander as reading was better than his wife’s but his jx etry didn't approach hers. After reviewing the whole series of lectures in our mind we've come to the conclusion, and we hope it is just, that this year's Winter Institute was unimpressive and not up to par. It is difficult to put a finger on the exact trouble: we are disturbed by a subtle dissatisfaction with the whole business. Although still a favorite Mr. Erskine and his constant twinkling began to get tiresome. Mr. Smith has already been dispensed with. Mr. Auslander and Miss Wurdemann were real meat for poets, but it is almost embarrassing for a layman to see and hear a fellow-being express himself so passionately in public. Mr. Canby stands out as the redeeming figure and he went far in raising the Winter Institute of Literature to a higher level. 33English ■ English and American literature arc Niagaras of knowledge pouring the cultural accumulation of generations past to countries thirsty for an understanding of their heritage. Through tracing the course of intellectual development the very life of these countries is revealed. In the University of Miami's English Department forty-four courses are offered all serving to give an understanding of ages past. Over 50'A of all students in the University are enrolled in the Department of English. 800 students are taking courses offered by the English faculty, headed by Dr. Clarke Olney. Freshmen arc listed on the rolls of English courses in over 400 cases. A faculty of eight professors teach courses ranging from Old English Language and Literature to Scientific and Research Writing. Literature serves the peculiar function of backbone to history. History by itself is a coldly factual and objective account of men and events. But we must realize that the story of our civilization is more than a series of political and military episodes. There is something deeper and far more potent which has shaped—and is shaping now the destiny of our country. It is the great mass of cultural accumulation which has molded thought to its own will. When we study history, men and events become hazy shadows in a distant past. We jump from one period to another with such rapidity, absorbing facts Mr .

We learn the facts but lose the warmth and vitality of the period. To understand an age we must understand the thought of that age. Literature bridges the gap between past and present. Consider the American Revolution. The history liook calmly tells of the numerous battles, military and fHilitical leaders, and fails in the process to give a full appreciation and understanding of the period. We turn to literature to secure the human interest of history. Through biography we study the character of such men as Washington. Franklin. George Ml. and Edmund Burke. From the prose works we read such documents as the Declaration of Independence or Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and they define the emotional turbulence of the time. From oratory we get the heat of the struggle: Patrick Henry’s “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" shows the fierce determination of the colonists. Satire slashes at the colonial ties in the poetry of such a man as Philip Freneau. In England Edmund Burke pleads vainly tor a settlement in his Speech of Conciliation before an adament cabinet and an insane king. The whole age becomes an epic, boiling cauldron of hate, bitterness, bigotry, and oppression. It becomes a living drama and we can gain an understanding and appreciation of it. 34Journalism ■ Journalism at the University of Miami will he considerably expanded next year when a completely equipped laboratory will be put into operation. Classes in the past have progressed without full workshop facilities, but with the addition of a special Journalism room in September advanced laboratory studies will become possible. Four new courses are therefore scheduled for 1940 41, bringing the total of credits offered to thirty-four semester hours. New courses include advanced news and reporting, advanced copy editing and make-up, editorial writing, and publicity methods. These will supplement the present curriculum, which includes principles, history, feature writing, literary and dramatic reviewing, secondary school publications, news and reporting, copy editing and make-up, and law of the press. In time classes in advertising will l e installed. Although the course of study was first planned in its present form in 1937. the University has offered Journalism through a restricted program since 1927. except for a lapse from 1932 to 1935. Up to now, no close tie-up between the Journalism classes and the University publications, the Hurricane and the Ibis, has existed. Some of the students, however, have expressed the hope that the future will see more direct affiliation between classroom work and staff writing on the publications. Such co-ordination would la? desirable because of the increased motivation that exists when articles written for class credit are published; besides, the burden now shouldered by small publications staffs would l e lightened. When the laboratory opens next year, feature stories, editorials, and news articles written for class will be submitted to the student editors for possible publication in the University newspaper and yearbook. Even now, much of the work done on class assignment is published. Students in literary and dramatic reviewing regularly write book reviews for publication in the Sunday Miami News; this year a number of the feature articles appearing in the 1940 Ibis were produced as classroom projects; and other Journalism class assignments appeared in the University Alumni Record. In April the Journalism classes had complete charge of preparing editorial 1‘lntfnrm vlrw of JouniallMii 201 In action and advertising copy for a special University section of the Miami Daily .Vetvs; during the past two years similar sections were published by the Miami Herald. Practical application thus accompanies theoretical training. The purposes and methods of teaching are described in a recent report by Simon Hochberger, instructor in charge of the courses: “At least three philosophies may govern college instruction in Journalism: (1) Journalism may be taught as a vocation; (2) it may be taught primarily as a problem in English composition; (3) it may be taught primarily as a social science. The first of these implies inadequate recognition of social responsibilities; the second and third leave unsatisfied the demands of prospective employers of graduates. Journalism instruction at the University of Miami attempts to solve the problem in the following manner: Courses numbered 200 emphasize economic, political, and social aspects of Journalism, and serve the needs of students who take no further work; others are for the most part composition courses stressing disciplined, factual writing and editing of news, feature articles, and literary and dramatic reviews. Some indication that our courses do not fail to meet the requirements of realistic employers is shown in the fact that during the past three years present and former students have found places with no fewer than ten publications in the Miami area." 35“Friends, Iloninns. Countrymen” . . . Here U ibe toodrm equivalent. Orators ■ The purpose of a course in public speaking is not to train students for a political career. Rather, its purpose is to give them more self-confidence and greater ease in expressing themselves logically and forcefully. At the University of Miami, the Public Speaking Department offers courses teaching the principles of speech, correct interpretations of great poetry, and debating. Johnny Q. Public suffers much at the hands of unskilled speakers. It is roughly estimated that enough gas is generated annually by such speakers to raise the national debt from its present cellar spot to a height of respect and have enough left over to blow Congress out of business. With the present political campaign gathering momentum. “Speech Gas” stock will hit a new high. It is a pity public speakers don't consider more carefully the principles and arts of their profession. At the University the public speaking student first learns the necessity of projx r breathing. You probably think that is strange. After all. if you learn how to inhale and exhale, then nothing more is needed. Hut proper breathing means voice control. We go to hear a so-called orator. His voice is harsh and high-pitched. He inhales audibly and then speaks slowly to give emphasis; then he becomes alarmed as he realizes that the end of his voice and the end of the sentence are not going to meet. He skids from one word to another, gulps an adjective, chews a noun, and. after splitting the period, gasps for the pulmotor squad. Exhibitionism, which is a compensation for lack of material, appears. He glares at his audience, shakes his fist at them, waves his arms and yells until a talent scout from Chattahoochee gives him a contract to star in “The Squirrel Cage.” Such things, the student learns, are wrong. A master)’ of the voice is essential for the public speaker. It means a calm, well-modulated voice— one that conveys the subtle impressions and emotional colorings intended. “Say what you mean and mean what you say” is the motto of the successful speaker. The audience comes to hear you; don't waste their time with tirades and exhibitionism. Frequent platform appearances dispel nervousness, and Dr. Charles Doren Tharp, who is in charge of public sjx-aking and debating, offers constructive criticisms to the students. Xot only how to speak but what to speak is learned. Getting “audience contact” implies certain tricks of sj eech development. Logic marked with simplicity and naturalness make the effective speech. After the student has mastered the fundamentals, he may take a course in interpretative speech. Here he learns how to give poetry the delicate shades of meaning and impressions intended by the poet. To read poetry correctly is a severe test for any sjxaker. Then the student may take debating. Whether he has profited by his courses in fundamentals will be determined here. Usually it is loss, not profit. Verbal barrages are laid down so heavily that debaters become tangled in their own rhetoric, and, failing to find an opening, wave their arms to detract attention from the speech. Then they jump to the next point. Hut debating at the University teaches students to think logically and to think on their feet. 36I n Any Language ■ "In Spain they say si-si!"—so go the words of a popular song; while in the classrooms of the University of Miami, language students learn the proper manner of "parlcz-vousing" with the French, Germans, Portuguese. Italians or the Spaniards. At any time during the day a stranger wandering through the halls of the Main Building will hear classes chorusing the words of some old folk-song in its original language. It is rightfully lielieved by most professors of languages that by learning some of the folk-songs of a country students develop a more active interest in the language. In the more elementary courses, which students generally take to obtain a cultural background of a particular country, light novels, short stories, and poetry are read besides the accomplishment of the day’s grammar lesson. Founded with the avowed purpose of furthering the ideals of Pan-Americanism, the University marked off another milestone in its progress in becoming one of this country's outstanding institutions of Hispanic-American studies when it added courses in Portuguese to the language Department curriculum. Brazil is the largest South American country with a population of fifty million people who speak Portuguese exclusively. It is apparent for this reason that to lx thoroughly equipped to further one's studies in the field of I.atin-American affairs, it is necessary to have a knowledge of Portuguese as well as of Spanish. Among the other additions to this department are new courses in Italian to lie offered next fall. These courses will give an introduction to Dante and the great Italian classics. A major is obtainable in all languages except Portuguese and Italian. The latter arc excepted since they are comparatively new and students at the present have not had time to obtain enough background to take courses leading to major study in these languages. In addition to general grammar and composition classes; literature courses and courses in the civilization of the resj ective languages are offered.

Not to boast to an undue extent about the language department, yet, there is this interesting fact to state, and that is. that the University has more courses and a wider diversity of languages offered in its curriculum than any other college or university of comparable size. All the members of the language department faculty are graduates of prominent American universities and. in addition, have studied abroad. The Universities of Heidelberg, the Sorbonne, Madrid, and Mexico are but a few of the institutions at which these scholars have studied. Hager in their quest of knowledge, these five gentlemen and a lady yearly continue their studies in the summer months either privately or under renowned authorities in their respective fields. Besides teaching a language and introducing students to a neighboring culture, these six scholars are agreed that by a study of a people and their language prejudices towards these same people are broken down. 37Illrrclun of I lie Intrriiiilluiml M-mliur »rr l»r.

In many respects the 1940 Hispanic-American Institute complementer! that of 1030 because the Institute of last year presented the American point of view as expressed by American scholars and acknowledged authorities. Juan Clemente Zamora, our first speaker, is a product of in ter-American education along lines which he has sought to make available to all intelligent Americans. Due to the advanced culture of the United States and its well developed jxilitical and social institutions there has been a great tendency on the part of I .atin-American countries to adapt the more successful institutions to their own local conditions. There has been an intensive building and reconstruction of various national institutions adapted both from the European and North American models. However, there is a great difficulty at the present time for North Americans to understand these composite institutions. To better understand and know our neighbors to the south it is essential that we read extensively in their literature. Dr. Zamora illustrated this statement by saying that one can always depend on help from a known neighbor, whereas an unknown one walks by "cold and unemotional." In his second lecture Dr. Zamora demonstrated that because of the political division of the various European countries there is constant economic friction on the tariff question, while the North American states have the advantage of free exchange and trade among themselves. The restoration of free trade among all nations but more specifically those of the Western Hemisphere is probably tin-only sensible solution to our present economic problem. As a result of our present effort to “cram" Latin-American markets with products from the United States without buying our quota of raw materials an artificial attempt to stay the natural balance of trade is set up. Until this balance of trade is established between the Americas we cannot hojK- for complete inter-American economic stability. In his final lecture at the Institute Dr. Zamora demonstrated how what in practice is an approach to free trade between the United States and Cuba is a successful experiment of his own trade ideas Little doubt is left in the mind of the intelligent student after this series of lectures by Dr. Zamora what the ideal course is that should lx- followed to arrive at our Pan-American goal, economically, socially, and culturally. The Honorable Victor Lascano, present minister of the Argentine Republic to Cuba, was the second speaker of our Institute. In his three lectures on the Argentine Foreign Policy in the Americas, Dr. Lascano traced the diplomatic role that the land of the pampas has played in Latin-American diplomatic intercourse. His main effort was to prove that there is an Argentinian foreign jxilicy which assumed two distinct aspects in two consecutive periods of this nation's growth. From the declaration of independence to the downfall of the Rosas dictatorship, this policy merely endeavored to consolidate the indejH-ndence and the internal unity of the country. During the second period from 1852 on. it was a conscious and reasoned policy, seeking to define national characteristics and to reach a definite establishment of boundaries. The policy rested upon respect for the treaties entered into by Spain and Portugal concerning their territorial acquisitions in 38America; and the renunciation of the shifting of boundaries by force. The name of the third speaker is known and revered wherever the Spanish language is spoken. Juan Ramon Jimenez, the greatest living Spanish poet, is noted both for the simplicity of his literary style and his unassuming manner of approaching his ever appreciative audiences. Scholars flock from near and far to hear the words of this living oracle of Spanish poetry. Miami scholars were indeed privileged as Juan Ramon Jimenez in his lectures for the first time defined his concept of poetry and of great literature. In addition to the honor of having this great figure at our Institute, the directors were fortunate in being able to persuade Don Jimenez to join the faculty of the University and teach a seminar on contemporary Spanish poetry. The versatility of true Latin-American scholars is the never ceasing wonder of the Anglo-Americans of the United States. Victor Andres Helaunde is a typical example of this particular type of versatile genius. Author, orator, diplomat, and teacher are but a few of the accomplishments of this renowned Pan-American scholar. Educated in Peru Dr. Hel-aunde has taught at the Sorbonne and has in addition lectured at some of the leading educational institutions of the Americas. Trustee of the University of Miami and guiding spirit of the Department of Studies of Latin-Amer-ica, Dr. Helaunde has attempted to bring this school closer to the La tin Americas by sending students there to study the people and their culture. The basic theme of the three lectures of Dr. Helaunde was that he believes an ethical renaissance is necessary to revive what appears to lx a breakdown of the moral foundation of all civilizations. This is particularly true in Europe where ethical disorientation is causing the present disorganizing situation. While moral antagonism and skepticism continue to exist we cannot hope to escape its consequences. The adherence to Christianity and Christian philosophy has brought our world to its present high state of civilization. Unless we continue to abide by their philosophies of which international law is but one of its many manifestations, we cannot hope for the continuation of civilization as we understand it now. Economic, political, and cultural relations between the United States and the Greater Antilles were traced by Dr. Rafael Pico, the fifth lecturer of this year’s Institute. Dr. Pico, a native of Puerto Rico, has studied both in his country and the United States, completing his university training at Clark University. Now a professor at Catholic University, Rafael Pico is also President of the Inter-American Forum of Washington, D.C. An outstanding geographer. Dr. Pico has published numerous basic works on the Antilles. The final lecturer of this year’s Hispanic-Amer-ican Institute. Dr. Emilio Carlos LeFort, was born in Argentina. Although Dr. LeFort began his studies in his homeland he completed his graduate university work at the University of Minnesota, where he is now Assistant Professor of Romance Languages. Dr. LeFort is known not only as a scholar in Spanish and Spanish-American letters, but also as a poet in his own right. His poetry has appeared in the leading literary periodicals of the Americas. Throughout his lectures Dr. LeFort traced the effect that political policies have exercised on Spanish-American letters. There has developer! on both continents an American motif. This is an undefmable. distinguishing factor in letters characteristic of the people of both the Americas. This is undoubtedly the literature which will endure as the typical American literature. Sociology ami literature of the Americas were the subject •UvuMrt! by lecturers Dr. Hafnel Pico and l)r. Victor Hcl-aundr at the Institute. 39Hispanic Studies ■ “Queror cs poder.” That’s an old Spanish saying! It means "to wish is to be able.’’ We students and the professors in the Hispanic department at the University of Miami aren't so easily taken in! We realize very well that, although the desire or motivation is half the battle, there's still work to be done. We aim to do it! Well, what's all this about? Almost every day from September to June more than a thousand students daily go through the main entrance of the class building and pass a plaque they never see. On that plaque can lx? found the key: it is a dedication of the University of Miami. The gist of the Spanish and English words inscril ed there, is: “Come on you nations of the New World, let’s get together and be friends. Or better yet, brothers I” We're the ones who aim to carry out that dedication! It's our job. The football team has games to play, the orchestra has music to make, the science department has science to explore, and we. well, we have the dedication to fulfill. There's no use being narrow-minded about it. We know we aren't the most important group in school, but. at the same time, we insist on claiming equal importance with any or all other departments and activities. Now the problem's always been "How to go about fulfilling the duties implied by the dedication?” The answer is, and you've heard it a hundred times before, that we've got to make friends with Latin-Amcrica. Sounds simple, doesn't it? But don't be fooled. It has difficulties. First off, we've got to speak their language. Otherwise we'd feel as much at home among them as a doctor at a bricklayer's convention. There’s no getting away from it: We've got to speak their language. Well, we do, now. It's taught at the University in a manner that gets results. We read their newspapers. their novels and listen to their broadcasts. Now we understand what they're saying. That's a big beginning. The next is to find out what they're thinking. Wc don't speak in the psychic sense. We mean "What do they think about this problem, and why do they think in that way? What is there in their traditions and customs that makes them lean towards this idea and shy away from that one?" There's more than learning a language in solving that. We read and read and read. Philosophy, Literature, Geography, Diplomatic Relations. Those are the subjects that hold the Spanish and Latin-Amer-ican ways of thinking. That takes care of the language and the thought. Now we are really ready to go ahead and make friends. But even that still presents serious problems. We must look for a common ground, a bona-fide reason to lie friends. Let’s see now, what have wc got in common? Latin-America is predominantly Catholic, we are predominantly Protestant. They're Mediterraneans; we're Anglo-Saxons (culturally at least). They like Khumlia; we like Swing. They're always late; we're too punctual. Say. it seems like we’ll never get along together! But wait, let's not go so fast. There are two kinds of meat in a sandwich, but they're both meat. In other words we've overlooked something here. We are human lx-ings and so arc they. That doesn't mean much in Europe, but that's all the more reason why it means so much more here. We are neighbors. That's reason enough to l e friendly. Just because neighbors are something to fear in the Old World is no reason why they can't be the object of admiration in the New World. So here we have two points: they're humans and our neighbors. They are rich and poor, good and bad. educated and ignorant. They are. well, now. darn it. doesn’t that sound pretty much like a description of ourselves ? Then there’s that matter of government. We believe in a thing called Democracy. We won't even try to define it; we know what it means to us; we have it; and we arc going to keep it. Some so-called civilizations of today hate it: but in all the Western Hemisphere it is the ideal, even if we don't always attain it. Thai’s something important. And something in common. A historical accident and geography have made us neighbors—our intelligence and culture can make us friend. This is our goal. 40Fair Exchange ■ In all the economic history of man dating from the first prehistoric that ever passed a sea shell for a pair of mocassins, that thing known as money has been called the medium of exchange. Came the depression and people began to say that money wasn't everything anyway, and how about reverting to that ancient practice of barter? Maybe there was something to it after all! Here at the University of Miami it used to lie that money was as much the unknown element as X is in Algebra. So to begin with, exchange was based more ujx n students than cash. However poor the school was financially, its natural resources of real students have always been rich. Well, student exchange has never been just a small part of the scholastic program. They've come from Peru, from Colombia, from Porto Rico, from Curacao, from the Dominican Republic, and from Cuba. Next year they'll come from Venezuela. And the year after that, well, just watch our smoke! The whole idea behind this business of exchanging students is pretty elementary. It’s called “intellectual co-operation." Don’t let that scare you. All it means is that the best way to learn something about the other fellow is to pal around with him. (Jet him to write your Spanish lesson; do his themes in Knglish 99 for him; enter the typical bull-sessions on life, politics, and such: and then, well darn it. if you don't begin to like the guy. you wouldn't have under any other circumstances. The chances are, however, that everything will work out just as it should and everyone all the way around will profit. He’ll lie a credit to the school, the school will give him something invaluable, and the bonds of the Americas will be just that much more secure than they were before. You can see the ideal behind the whole thing. In theory, it's a thing of perfection. In actual practice, it has a long way to go. The selection of students, both domestic and foreign, must be systematized. Special courses to attract these foreign students must be instituted. A more personalized treatment of their problems must be developed. The number SloildlDK: Faust o I'cruso, Antonio Ollvum, VI full In J.u .urilo, Annul" Frrn.nulr . Sratcd: Srn. OirUImt Uulntunn. Sin.

It seems that while we’re anxious to teach them our way. we re not so enthusiastic alxiut taking a few lessons from them. However, when we try to evaluate the exchange student plan of the University of Miami, we must conclude that it is as good, if not better, than any other in the country. Other institutions with more money and less enthusiasm or initiative could well take cognizance of the spirit with which we work on this phase of scholasticism here. We have set a higher goal, and it will take us longer to attain it. but if and when we do. we will have accomplished something of which we will lie rightfully proud. Behind any so ambitious an undertaking lies a driving force. The success is directly proportional to the ability and industry of those forces. In this instant, Drs. Owre and McXicoll deserve the applause, for they're the ones who have done the work. It wasn’t easy. Things like this never are. It took time and energy and inspiration, and they willingly supplied it. So, if in the future anyone asks who was responsible for the University of Miami becoming the great Pan-American University that it is, don't look around for a contemporary and say it was he. Better look back and rememlier. 41Social Sciences Tlx- family of micluI xclruces lix k Ju»l Uiih sternly at l rolilrm% of world ulTuIrs mnl cluv discipline. ■ Monitors of the? social science faculty at the University of Miami are Dr. Harold E. Briggs. Dr. I.ouis K. Manley. I)r. Robert E. McNicoll. Dr. J. Paul Reed. Dr. Charlton W. Tebeau, Dr. H. Franklin Williams, Dr. Reinhold P. Wolff. Mr. Robert B. Downes, Mr. Paul E. Eckel. Mr. Ernest McCracken. Mr. Arturo Morales, and Mr. Otho V. Overholser. ■ The importance of economic education in a democratic state, where the burdens of citizenship must be equally shared, is greatly emphasized by the economics department of the University. Courses, stressing a practical approach to an understanding of this field, are taught by Messrs. Ernest McCracken. Otho V. Overholser. Robert B. Downes, and Dr. Rheinhold P. Wolff. Preceding the initial course in the principles of economics is a survey of business activities and their relation to conditions in America today. These beginning courses acquaint the student with the background of industry, agriculture, and trade, as their ini| ortancc grows with the increasing inevitability of the problems of competition, monopoly, unemployment, and taxation. The advanced courses offer a comprehensive study of economic policies, their ideals and responsibilities. A Ixasic knowledge of the subject strengthened by the consequences of early American economic history, the student is able to key his mind to the task of evaluating these | olicies in such a way as to bring them into close harmony with the present day sociological and political problems. For those who expect to take direct participation in the economic life of the nation, these courses are especially necessary. It is not enough to know merely the general liackground of our present economic system, but also such information as the following courses offer: Economic Problems, Marketing, Salesmanship and Advertising, Real Estate, Principles and Practice. Public Utilities. International Economic Relations, and Advanced Economic Theory. ■ Realizing the importance of history as an interpreter of modern civilization, the University includes 32 courses, a total of 80 semester hours, in its curriculum. A candidate for a B.A. or B.S. in Education must complete at least 5 semester hours. 12 hours constitute a minor, and 24 hours a major. 42In agreement with the professional historians who state. “Fruitful specialization must be fertilized by generalization,” the detriment offers survey courses in world civilization and in American history, which are prerequisites for all specialized studies. More than 200 students are enrolled this year in each of the survey courses. Among the advanced studies in the University's historical field are Age of Renaissance, History of the Caribbean Area, Development of the British Empire. Hebrew Civilization, French Revolution. History of the American Frontier, and History of the South. Courses in historiography and thesis writing were recently introduced as required courses for history majors. After studying the development of history as a written subject, students learn the rules of historical research and apply them to a definite topic. The faculty emphasizes the role of history as a basis for intelligent citizenship. By teaching students background and a sufficient consciousness of the past, it hopes to combat the danger once pointed out by Frederick Harrison, a recent historian, who said “It is sheer presumption to attempt to remodel existing institutions without the least knowledge as to how they were formed or how society arose; to construct a social creed without an idea of fifty creeds that have arisen and vanished before, few men would intentionally attempt so much, yet many do it unconsciously.” ■ An analysis of political science, not only of our own government, but of other nations, is particularly useful when such knowledge is necessary for an appreciation of our democratic status in contrast to the undemocratic state of affairs elsewhere. Through the courses it offers, the Political Science Department strives to instill in the student a more logical sense of reasoning in political affairs so that he may more efficiently employ his influence as a citizen. The head of the department, Dr. Louis K. Man-ley. is a newcomer to the faculty. Dr. Manley was Dean of the School of Business Administration at the University of Pittsburgh for ten years. During that time he was ap|x inted by President Hoover to represent the United States at the International Convention of Commercial Education at Amsterdam, Holland. More recently he was associated with the Studebaker Corporation in the ca| acity of General Sales Manager, which position he resigned to resume the teaching of political science. Mr. Ernest McCracken, assistant professor of (Mditical science, and Dr. Reinhold P. Wolff complete the faculty. Dr. Wolff specializes in the economic and legal aspects of government and business. The elementary course, Political Institutions, has proven to be one of the most popular in the school, with one out of ever)’ four students registered in it. It covers the development of national, state, and local government structure, including the basic principles and theories of the party system and its effect on administrative, legislative, and judiciary Specialized courses offered by this department give the student a great opportunity to investigate more thoroughly the material surveyed in the elementary course. The advanced courses include: Local Government. Comparative Government. Government and Business, American Political Parties. World Politics, and Political Theory. ■ Sociology is concerned with the analysis of the Cultural heritage and the social processes. This social science is also interested in human nature and the relationship of the individual to society. Throughout man's world there are multiple variations in the products of social interaction. Through sociology we may study not only the processes of social interaction but also the nature of social movements. The more immediate value of sociology to the student is the appreciation of our own social situations. This year the University through its Department of Sociology initiated a more extensive service to the community. Under the joint sponsorship of the Council of Social Agencies and the University of Miami, the first annual Institute of Social Welfare was begun. Representatives of local agencies outlined their objectives and described their services. The speakers were all professional social workers in the local community. The first Institute of Social Welfare was concluded with a presentation of goals, machinery, needs, and limitations in the attempts to further human welfare in Dade County. The Department of Sociology is loginning a health survey over the Dade County area for the local Council of Social Agencies. This is more than a community service. It provides practical exper-ience for the research student. 43Concepts of Life ■ The connection between philosophy and religion is definite but is hard to bring clearly into view. Treatment of such a question fully requires volumes, but here only a general idea of the subject can be given. Hocking, in his book. The Meaning of God in Human Experience, seems to sum up the modern view of philosophy and religion. He says, "Our current science of religion may assume without too much discussion that the grounds of religion arc super-rational, or subralional: and we find Philosophy trying to define what these other-than-rational-grounds are- -grounds moral perhaps, or psychological or social, or historical; grounds pragmatic or even mystic. Various and variously combined as are these several philosophic trends, they agree in accepting the judgement that religion lies close to the primitive moving forces of life: deeper then, than reason or any work of reason.” This idea of Hocking's and many more eminent philosophers seems to hit the relation between philosophy and religion right on the head. Philosophy, which tries to figure life from the tangible evidences of it. is more or less at a loss trying to figure life from the intangible evidences of it. That is why it is having so much difficulty in attempting to define the mind and its relation to man’s thinking. As it has been said that reason is not incapable of recognizing and confessing its own limits, it will be difficult for philosophy to figure out religion on a concrete basis, and it is made even more so by man’s finite knowledge. Vet, this consistent modern trend of philosophy will indubitably go on, and some day, perhaps we will have a complete philosophy of religion, which will bring man’s relation to religion within his finite knowledge. Philosophy at the University is taught by Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan, lecturer in philosophy. Dr. Kaplan offers a total of four hours in the courses, Introduction to Philosophy. In these courses there is an evaluation, unification, and justification of the higher cultural interests of man. Students are taught to use philosophy as a means of meeting the problems of the meaning of life and the world. A total of four hours is also ofiered in Ethics which is taught l r. K:i| tnn mul llr. MrMmilrr by Dr. Kaplan. The application of reflective morality to the problems of modern life in economics, politics, and society in general is stressed. Dr. William H. McMaster, professor of religious education, is in charge of all courses in religion offerer! at the University. Six semester hours are given in the courses, The Bible as Literature. Biblical literature is studied and is given a literary and historical approach. The King James Version of the Bible is used as a textbook in the courses. Readings in the classic selections from the King James Version are studied, as well as a study of the history and chronology of the Hebrew people. A course in the Comparative Study of Religions is offered and four semester hours may be taken. This course is a study of the dead historic religions and the eleven religions of the world today. Comparison of religious phenomena is made. There is also an attempt to discover the essentials of a mature religion. The philosophy and religious sections of the University are run as two separate units. However, the intimate relation between the two subjects makes it necessary for there to be a discussion of the connection between them. As the University grows, the number of courses in philosophy and religion will be increased. In the future, the possibility of having a complete department in both philosophy and religion will be enhanced, and someday there will be complete departments in both subjects. 44Psychology ■ “Someday we hope to have a laboratory.' That quotation is taken from last year’s Ibis article on the psychology department. This year equipment is being imported and plans arc l eing made for a psychology’ laboratory which will begin to function before the school is a year older. A major in psychology will be offered next year. The professors who have worked and planned to make hist years dream come true are Miss Georgia May barren, associate professor of psychology: I)r. Max I’’. Meyer, professor of psychology, whose work with the application of Alexander Graham Hell's theory of teaching the born-deaf to talk by first teaching them to write phonetically is well-known: and Mr. George Lehner, assistant professor, an importation at mid-semester who is to take charge of all the new-born laboratory courses. Mr. Lehner hopes to lie Dr. Lehner at the end of this year: he is working for a Ph.D. from Brown University, where he received his M.A.; his A.B. came from the University of South Dakota. Among the new courses which are to lx? offered next year will be Clinical Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Psychology of Learning. Psycholog)’ of Personality, and Tests and Measurements. The present introductory course in General Psycholog)’ will lx lengthened to two semesters and will be given es|x cially for majors. These courses have not been offered previously lx cause the lack of laboratory equipment preventer! their inclusion in the curriculum. The new laboratory now being planned will provide for experiments on learning, perception, sen-sory physiology, so-called emotional reactions, and in testing procedure. Incoming freshmen will be given special orientation tests. Beside the usual printed test forms, special machinery has been provided for the testing of reading speeds. Actual camera photographs showing the s|x cd at which the eye travels a line of type will l e made and developed in a special dark-room adjacent to the laboratory. These pictures of eye-movements cannot lx made with an ordinary camera. Special machinery must lx used. The ophthalmograph is a combination lighting and camera arrangement which will test the span of recognition. Small lights are focused on the eyes and reflected by them onto a strip of film moving downward as they read standardized material printed on small cards. Since it has lxen proved that reading is only done when the eye is motionless, the straight line recordings of reflected light on the film represent actual reading done. Thus when the film of the camera is develo|x?d it can actually lx determined how many stops are made in reading and therefore how much is taken in at each stop: in other words with the one simple operation the new machine can record how fast anti efficiently a student reads. Another new piece of equipment is the metrono-scope. which goes into use when the ophthalmograph has diagnosed the trouble. A shutter device on this machine permits as few or as many words printed on a roll to lx exposed to the vision of the reader as needed. At first the roll moves as slowly as is convenient for the reader. As it is gradually speeded up the perception of the reader's eyes is quickened. Practice with this machine will actually produce greater speed in reading. Tests have shown that many college freshmen enter school with a reading ability usually found in elementary school students. If the ophthalmograph shows that such is the case with entering University of Miami freshmen, the metronoscope will be used to correct this defect. Virginia H the special student, well known lu l r.

New Math Courses ■ Helping the University a step further toward becoming one of the outstanding academic institutions of the south, the mathematics department has, this year, entered on a new program of expansion. With the addition of another member to its faculty, there have also l een added many new courses to further supplement the work of the science student and to give the math enthusiast opportunity to secure a major. At the head of the department is Professor Warren B. I.ongeneckcr. who. during the year, has taught the Arts Calculus, Differential Calculus, Graphics, and the Science Algebra, Trigonometry, and Analytical Geometry. The science mathematics courses are designed for the science or pure mathematics student, while the arts courses are meant for the Liberal Arts student who desires to secure some understanding of the basic mathematics. Mr. Longenecker holds degrees in Science and Engineering from Pennsylvania State College and has taught at various technological institutions. He has been associated with some of the large commercial companies such as General Electric and has Ixien here at the University since its beginning. Added to the staff as assistant professor has l cen I)r. Samuel S. Saslaw. Dr. Saslaw took his undergraduate and graduate work from M.I.T. and holds their B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees. He is a member of Sigma Xi, has done mathematical work in England. and taught at Cornell before taking his present position. In his first year, he has taught Mathematics of Finance, Science Calculus, dvanced Calculus, Vector Analysis, and the Arts Algebra. Trigonometry, and Analytical Geometry. Dr. Saslaw is also actively engaged in pure mathematical research and is a referee of the American Mathematical Society. A link between the faculty and the students is the student assistant who is available for help on assignments which may be difficult. This year's assistants have l een Eugene Eley for Mr. Longenecker and David Abrams for Dr. Saslaw. For the first time, the department has, this year, made it possible to obtain a major in mathematics. This, combined with the plan of offering both Arts and Science courses, is designed to give all students the opportunity to obtain valuable mathematical instruction. Included, of course, is Mathematics of Finance where the Business Administration student may obtain a knowledge of compound interest and discount, annuities, perpetuities, amortization and sinking funds, valuation of bonds, and mathematics of life insurance among other subjects. Next year a total of 26 hours will lie added to the curriculum. These courses are Algebra anil Geometry; Introduction to Modern Algebra; Introduction to Mathematical Logic; Differential Geometry: and Advanced Applied Mathematics. In addition to these new courses, the department will add several volumes to the mathematics and science library which should prove of interest to the general reader and student of philosophy. At the present, there is an NYA project for the construction of mathematical models for both elementary and advanced work. These models are of great aid to the students. An example of this is the Galton hoard. This lx»ard illustrates the normal law of distribution and statistics. The board clearly demonstrates that application of the normal law to less than at least 500 samples leads to erroneous results. The aims of the department, in general, coincide with the fundamental practical, disciplinary, and cultural aims of all mathematical instruction. 46Navigation ■ Realizing their early boyhood dreams, the dreams of someday becoming a pilot, the students of the University can now receive flight instruction under the federal government's nation-wide civilian pilot training program. At the University, the would-be pilots receive instruction in navigation, meteorology, and related aeronautic ground work. At one of the Miami Hying schools, they are able to receive actual flight instruction, leading to solo and a private pilot license. The program of the national government in training college students, is manifold. It aims, for one thing, to prepare a reserve of pilots who may in some time in the future prove necessary in staving off a naval attack aimed at the United States, but at the same time, this course is not for the special purpose of training the students to enter any military organization, nor do they receive a reserve commission. Their training does not subject them to call in case of a war, but they are merely considered by the government as private pilots. The program is also to encourage aviation in the United States, and is to aid the public to become air-minded, to realize the importance and growth of the industry. It also is to aid the student choose a vocation. The aviation classes are conducted at the university by Professor J. H. C louse, head of the physics department. The lectures and instruction are given by experts from nearby airj)orts and commercial airlines. Such men as J. R. DeHart, Eastern Air Lines meteorologist; J. J. Tigert, Pan American engineer; John Martin, machinst mate at the Opa Locka Naval Reserve base; T. ( Brownell, University instructor in navigation; and S. C. “Jiggs” Huffman, chief flight operator, have all addressed the students. After the student has successfully passed in the ground schooling, he is allowed to further his ambitions by having practical flight instruction and training. To the beginner, it is a series of take-offs, turns, banks, and landings. Each done with precision and grace. After at least eight hours of instruction in duo flight, the students who qualify may solo and apply for their solo license. After 35 hours of solo flight, the student may apply for his private pilot license. The University of Miami is also fortunate in having a telescope donated to them by Harry Rich-man. Mr. Richman gave it to the astronomy department of the University. Plans have already been made for the use and practical application of this telescope. It is to be placed out on the roof of the building on a platform. The platform will be built so it will hold 25 persons. When not in use. the telescope will lie placed in a small room, and rolled out on a platform each time it is to be used. In the past years, astronomy classes were held twice a week, and only two credits were given in this subject: also, it was only given once during the year, and then in the spring. Starting next year, it will l e given each semester and will be open to all students. Harry Rlchmnn lirrr prc»ttt» !he Irn of hl» gift Irlrsropr to l»r. Bowman F. A die with J. It.

Southwest of Miami there are numerous islands of vegetation known as tropical hammocks. These particular hammocks arc composed of a dense growth of hardwood trees mainly of tropical origin. A five-year study conducted by I)r. Walter S. Phillips, with the aid of advanced students, was made of Castellow Hammocks. One hundred and twenty-eight different kinds of plants were found in this hammock, and 82'« of them belonged distinctively to the West Indies and not to the United States. Only S'" of the 128 were kinds to be found in the United States outside of south Florida. The classes in Field Botany and in Mosses and Ferns find such hammocks as Castellow Hammocks an excellent outdoor laboratory, along with mangrove swamps, cypress swamps, and beaches. Glance back through the old University Bulletins to the year 1926-27. Now look into next year's bulletin. Wc now have a bigger and better curriculum. Pay particular attention to the four science department. Notice the steady development. E. T. MtuHtmin, T. C Brownell, Dr. K. V. Iljorl. W. S. Phillip-.. Goor f 1-rhnrr, l r.

One year of general inorganic, one year of organic chemistry. The four years of our seniors' memory can recall a complete chemistry course, from general inorganic, organic, analytical, physical, to problem courses for advanced seniors. There is a total now of 63 credits offered in 19 courses. The departmental faculty has long realized the need of an elementary laboratory course for stu- 48dents wanting to make their required laltoratory science chemistry. This desire on the part of students has probably been nurtured by the ever growing demands of chemistry to supply needs of daily life. A course, for Liberal Arts and Education students. called The Chemistry of Daily Life has been added; lectures, three hours: laboratory, four hours. The lecturer will try to give an intelligent student an appreciation, partly technical, of the great applications of chemistry, together with a well-rounded background of the science. ■ In keeping with the steady upward trend in the enrollment of the University, the physics department has shown a considerable increase in number of students. In consequence of this fact, new equipment and added facilities were necessary to accommodate the physics students. Indications are that in 1940-41 activity in this department will be greater than ever. Adequate working space is essential for the accomplishment of the experiments in the laboratory. Next year the lab will be expanded to provide this room. An advanced laboratory course in the fields of mechanics, heat, electricity, and light extending over two semesters is l eing offered next year. While this course has been given before, it has been three years since it was last offered : and it is exjH'Cied that a large class will take advantage of the op| ortunity to enroll in this course. Dr. W. A. Reuse, graduate of Case School of Applied Science and Ohio State University, has l ecn engaged as assistant professor of physics for next year. Professor J. H. Clouse, in addition to his duties as head of the department, will continue his work as director of the Civilian Pilot Training Program of the Civil Aeronautics Authority. No further work was carried out on the copper chromate crystals which Professor Clouse has succeeded in growing. While considerable information concerning these crystals was collected last year by Clarence Froscher. but he did not return this year and no student has continued his work on the project. ■ Field trips are one of the most interesting and instructive phases of zoological study. It has always been difficult for students to get a comprehensive knowledge of invertebrate animals merely from lectures and from studying preserved specimen in the laboratory. Hut when this study is supplemented with observation of living animals in their natural habitats, a clearer conception can be gotten. Because of the location of the University of Miami, conveniently near the natural environment of animals valuable for observation, it is possible for groups of students to make frequent field trips. These field trips are usually taken by a group of about fifteen, composed of students, laboratory assistants, and one or two professors. Most of the specimen can lx found across Biscayne Hay on the “flats." The equipment is usually a silk net. which can be dragged behind the boat to catch the many small organisms that live near the surface of the water; long-handled dip nets; spikes; and wooden tubs and pails to keep the animals in until they can be transferred to the laboratory aquarium. Large glass water jugs are user! to bring back salt water for the aquariums. Few other universities and colleges in the country have tin same opportunity for such a supplementary study as the University of Miami.Education ■ Headed by Dean Henry S. West, the School of Education prepares students for the profession of teaching. Sitting in the soda shop with endless sheets of ovals and copies of the alphabet spread l cfore them; methodically checking simple objective reading tests in the patio; or putting on a dignified manner as they rush off to the Merrick School for an afternoon of observation, are all in the routine of our future teachers, although a great deal of their time is spent in classes pertaining to educational theory and method. The School of Education enrolls all students who arc preparing to enter the profession of teaching, whether in the elementary school, the junior high school, or the senior high school. The four year curricula, including both liberal and professional courses, is planned to lead to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education. Definite professional training is given through courses in education, psychol- ogy, and sociolog)’, including child study, elementary school teaching, adolescence, high school teaching, and principles of education. The work of the University of Miami has been given official recognition by the Florida State Department of Education, so that graduates with the University of Miami degree receive, without further examination, the Florida Graduate State Teachers Certificate, and are legally qualified to teach in any of the public schools of the state. THE MERRICK DEMOSST RATIOS SCHOOL The Merrick Demonstration School is sjxmsored by the Dade County Public Schools and the University of Miami. The teachers are chosen from the teaching force because of their special fitness for this type of work. The principal of this school is also Assistant Professor of Education at the University. The pupils come from the area surrounding the Demonstration School. It is the aim of the school to have an average, unselected group of pupils. The school is not intended as a school for remedial pupils and problem cases. Tourist children arc not admitted since this school must measure the results of its program, and such measurement is impossible when pupils are present only a part of the school year. The enrollment is limited to thirty-five pupils per teacher, the average enrollment of classes in the elementary schools of Dade County. This school uses a modified activity program. It is a demonstration, not experimental, school. To a large extent, activities in the classroom are such as may be carried on by any teacher in any classroom in the county. At present, the Demonstration School is open for observation by teachers and students from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Students in Education courses in the University are invited to visit the school and to become acquainted with its entire program. 50I trim llriirj S.

During the second semester of the year, juniors and seniors in the School of F lucation were per-mitted to register for a course in Observation and Practice Teaching. These students had first a period of observation in all six grades in order to get a preview of the elementary school program. This was followed by a | eriod of observation in a single grade. The students then took charge of the grade and taught under the guidance of the regular teacher. The students are required to spend a minimum of three hours a week observing classes, and are encouraged to teach all day toward the end of the year. Each student must choose a ‘‘unit of work" and supervise the work of the children on various projects. such as making health posters, soap carving, and artistic paintings of cocoanuts. Recently, the Merrick School participated in the celebration observing the fifteenth anniversary of the founding of Coral Gables. The children put on a scries of tableaux tracing the historical development of Coral Gables as a school program. This demonstration school is a valuable aid in preparing the students of the School of Education for their profession, by giving them the opportunity to gain practical experience in applying the methods and theory which they have learned. In obtaining the groundwork for a teching career a student is expected to include in his course a history or development of education in the United States. Through required and elective courses chosen from the Liberal Arts program students obtain advanced command of subjects to Ik. taught in the schools. A student may make his choice from 36 subjects in following his education course. For those who wish to teach elementary grades detailed courses are offered for the purpose of training students how to teach various elementary sub-jects. Materials and methods for leaching the nature and elementary science units found in modern courses of study are offered. Students of public school art spend their time on manual work in clay, wood and in drawing a design. Both the practical and theoretical aspects of children’s literature are presented. One course is devoted to the study and demonstration of principles and procedures in teachings of the basic elementary subjects. Since one of the main and mast important problems of a beginning teach is classroom management, instruction is given in classification and grouping of pupils, organizing supervised study, and reconstruction behavior.Business School ■ Organized as a separate School with the opening of the University in 1926, with a few students and three or four faculty members, the School of business Administration has grown steadily in numbers and in favor. This year over 400 students were registered, including 47 pre-Law students preparing for the professional work of the Law School under the six-year combination plan, while the faculty numbered nine full-time instructors. Practically all regular courses of instruction offered in this School are open to students registered in the other schools of the University. Reciprocally, all freshmen and to a lesser extent sophomores and upper classmen are enrolled in many liberal arts courses, in which the instruction is given by members of the College of Liberal Arts faculty. Upper classmen have the privilege also of electing courses in the School of Law. By this cooperative arrangement students in the School of Business Administration find opportunity to explore various fields of knowledge. Vet. while the course permits and encourages this wide election of so-called ‘•liberal" or “cultural" studies, it keep steadily in mind the fact that under our economic and social system all able-bodied adults must “make a living.” Students who plan to take the six-year combination Business Administration-Law course ordinarily devote all their senior year to Law courses, which providing all other requirements for graduation have been satisfied, are accepted as the equivalent of the senior year in the School of Business Administration. Upon certification from the School of Law these students are entitled to graduation with the degree, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Having thus completed his freshman year in law the student who has chosen to pursue this six-year combination course continues the prescrib'd Junior and Senior courses, and upon their successful completion is awarded the degree. Bachelor of Laws. Since its establishment fourteen years ago. the curriculum of the School has been broadened and enriched by additional courses as carefully considered advances seemed advisable and as increased facilities, faculties, and finances became available. In the last two years the addition of new faculty members has permitted expansion in various specialized fields. Dr. Louis K. Manley, after several years as professor and administrator and several more years as an executive in one of the country's largest corporations, was appointed professor of political science: Dr. kheinhold Wolff, after broad academic training in foreign and American universities, engaged for several years in teaching and research work and is a recognized authority in the field of consumption economics; Dr. Stewart (lir-riel, likewise trained in foreign and American universities, and for several years special lecturer and organizer of industrial study groups in salesmanship and advertising for some of the largest industrial corporations in the country, brought to the teaching of these and related subjects a rich fund 52of practical information and personal experience. The writer pauses to lay a wreath oj affectionate memory upon the grave of Dr. Girriel who in his short hut abundantly full and aide service to the University endeared himself by his unselfish devotion and personal charm of character to all his associates and to every student who came in contact with him. Students will long remember him as "the students' friend and counsellor"—and that is how he would like best to be remembered. Several new faculty members will be added next year. Dean Holdsworth's classes in finance have l ccomc so large that they must lx divided and an assistant appointed. This will permit the Dean to give the new course. Introduction to Business, required of all freshmen. A new instructor will lx appointed in the newly-consolidated department of Commerce, giving courses in Economic Geography, Economic History. Foreign Trade, International Economic Relations, and in Marketing. Salesmanship. Advertising, etc. Mr. Ovcrholser will be on absence leave next year to pursue further graduate work, and a new instructor will have to be appointed to carry on his courses in Insurance. Real Estate, and Business Law. The work in Accounting has reached such proportions that an additional instructor will have to lx appointed for next year. An entirely new department will be established, that of Secretarial Courses or Studies, including Shorthand, Typewriting and Office Management. This new department, like Accounting or Insurance or Economics, is an integral part of the full four-year course, and not a special short course to train stenographers for office positions. We do not specifically prepare students to lx bookkeepers, nor to lx stenographers. This latter is the proper field and function of the private commercial schools with which we in no sense compete. We do recognize, however, that by furnishing students in the course of their four-year training with such "tools" of business as accounting and shorthand we shall have widened their availability as assistants in various advancement to positions of responsibility and trust. For next year it is planned to limit enrollment in these new Secretarial Studies to upperclassmen. With the new departmental set-up for 1940-41 it is now possible for the student to major in any of the following departments: Accounting. Commerce, Economics, Finance, and Political Science.

Girriel ■ When the densest crowd around a soda shop table broke to let a newcomer in an onlooker expected to see in the thick of it Stewart W. Girriel. He was the supreme guardian of the soda shop. Instead of going to his office between classes he spent his spare time there sipping coffee and listening to student problems and whims. He stayed in the soda shop for just one reason—to lx with his students. He was always three deep in people, rarely alone, and still more rarely without a smile. Mr. Girriel had an intense love of living and this spirit he instilled in his classes. His lectures on economics could have passed for lectures on life and living. He believed in humanity and he preached humanity. He was himself a true human being. The only way to do justice to the memory of this man is to relate some of the things he did that were typical of him. He user! to bounce down the hall, hat in hand, beaming and singing out. ‘ Hello sweetheart." He sjK)ke first whether he knew a student or not. The customary way for Mr. Girriel to dismiss his classes was. “Come on down to the soda shop and have a cup of coffee with me." And he meant it. Dan Cupid never had a more active agent than Mr. Girriel. He was always interested in the progress of young romances. Last year one of his boys was broke at the time of the Junior Prom. When Mr. Girriel found this out he bought tickets to the prom and instructed the young man to take his girl. One of the best tales about Mr. Girriel is this: One morning in the depths of one of his lectures which was obviously boring (for he was that human) he tossed a challenge to his class. He bet five dollars that notxxiy could get up ami write on the Ixxtrd what he had been talking about. Two boys arose, walked up to the board and wrote the figures on it. Girriel stepped off the platform, handed ten dollars to a student, said "Pay them off." and walked out of the room. It is consoling to note that Mr. Girriel once remarked to one of his classes that he would like to die without warning when he was in the midst of the work and activity he loved. This desire he realized. Although Mr. Girriel is gone it will lx a long lime before some students forget what he taught them about living (the economics they probably have already forgotten). He left joy behind him and we feel that we re happier, fuller people for having known this man.School of Law ■ It is Baruch de Spinoza who inspired the following definition of law, which contains in large measure the answer to the problem of law and the democratic society which we are ever striving to create both here in the United States, and in the larger world of the human family: “Law is not the mere absence of anarchy, but rather a positive quality, which arises out of an attitude of justice." At this time, when the whole of our human society has lost the attitude of justice, out of which the true mental approach toward law develops, it is of most significance that we here and now dedicate ourselves anew to the tenets of our faith in law. To the end that here in the United States, in the State of Florida, in the more immediate neighborhood of Greater Miami, there shall continue to emerge that democratic way of life and living for which our ancestors have sought since the dawn of conscience. To this end, the School of Law of the University of Miami seeks to train the mental habitudes of its several students. Under the early guidance of the late Dean Richmond Austin Rasco. responsible for the early recognition of our school by the Supreme Court of the State of Florida, the trend was inaugurated. Under the able leadership of our present Dean, Russell A. Rasco, this tendency has been continued. We may now call it the basic underlying philosophy of our training. That the law is the one means whereby the progressive society in the spirit of our common American tradition, seeks to modify itself and to change itself to the greater service of the people, who are the sovereign in the democratic concept of government. It was Dr. Lester Ward, the great sociologist, who set forth in his Dynamic Sociology the theory that it is the basic, underlying philosophy of a society, in the persons of its individual members, takes in order to adapt itself to the changing times and situations. Hence, it is the basic, underlying spirit and outlook of the schools of law of our country, which may, in no small way, determine the decisions of the courts of last resort, which in turn often affect very intimately the lives, customs, and habits of our people. Hence, when we look about us in the world of today, we return with a humble and deeply appreciative feeling to the schools for the teaching of the law in the land of the free and creative human spirit. It is a profound feeling, almost one of religious awe that we approach the majesty of the law. our hearts and minds open to the subtle influences, which shall in turn lead us to the realization of the 55power of the law for good, and unfortunately, also for evil. Hence, the deep and abiding significance of the proper spirit of a school in the transmission of the proper and responsible outlook of the students who come under its influence. You may wonder just how. in concrete manner, a school of law conveys to the community in which it is situate, the detonation of this connotation of the philosophy of law. Under the aegis of our Dean, Miami's School of Law makes available to the legal and lay residents of this area a vast store of legal learning in the fourteen thousand odd volumes, which all are welcome to use and study. It is in th's connection, that early in the autumn of the current academic year, the Dean, with the aid of our School of Law's first member of the House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States, the Hon. A Pat. Cannon, secured the designation of our school as United States Government Depository for all public documents and publications of the government of the United States and its several agencies, bureaus, commissions, boards, etc., for the Fourth Congressional District of the State of Florida. The exact significance of this important honor conferred upon our university may be realized when one notes that the United Stales government annually in this country publishes more lxx ks. pamphlets, papers, etc., than any private publishing house in the commercial field. All these vast stores of historical, documentary, sociological, legal, and At u r: limn ltu»M-ll A. Itnwn mui William llratrr rvumlnr n book of I hr law library. Ilr low: Urorgr K.

It will be practically necessary for the School of Law to acquire its own separate quarters, in order that these materials may be given proper space and storage room. It is hoped that by the opening of the University in the autumn of 1940, that the School of Law will be housed in its own building, as evidence of the steady growth in service and in significance of this important branch of the field of learning proper to a university 1111111 i I i 11 i 11 f 111 liHMlIiff mm Mllll 56of the scope and meaning of the University of Miami. Our faculty does all in its power to better enable our students to secure the best possible training both in material and in method that is available. Mr. William J. Hester is spending the current academic year at the School of Law of the University of Michigan working on his Doctor of Juridical Science. During the ensuing academic year. Mr. Rol ert McKenna will Ik- on leave of absence doing further graduate work in the Held of law. because of this, our students have been fortunate in having Capt. Lemuel A. Haslup associated with the School of Law. It is of interest to note that among our faculty members are the following: Hon. George E. Holt, Representative for Dade County, in the Legislature of the Slate of Florida at Tallahassee; Hon. John M. Flowers, outstanding practioner in the field of civil law; Prof. Lauffer T. Hayes, Master of Laws from Harvard University, Assistant Professor of Law; Mrs. Herberta Ann Leonard)-, our new law librarian, formerly State Liaison Officer for the State Hospital at C'hattahootchee; and Hon. L. Karl Curry, Referree in Bankruptcy. The cosmopolitan outlook of our school is further illustrated by the roster of its students, who haii from as far west as Texas, as far north as New York, and from all points intermediate. In this connection, we might mention that during the year, on an average of once a week, institutes are held, at which time outstanding members of the Ix-nch and bar lecture to the audience on various phases of the law. These have been conspicuously popular. It was the late, eminent Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Hon. Benjamin N. Car-dozo. who said that the Law is a jealous mistress. She deserves to Ik . For upon her broad, yet shapely shoulders, rests the responsibility for the stability and the progress of our society along paths to ever greater and ever more democratic service to our country and to all humanity. The law is the guardian of this philosophy. 57Music School ■ Of all the departments of our University, the School of Music has probably the best right to sit back, congratulate itself complacently and say to itself. “We have arrived." Our football team may not l e the best college team in the country, but our band and orchestra are just that. Our choral organizations are rapidly beginning to assert themselves. Our alumni hold the best music teaching jobs in the county and the state. Indeed, we have arrived. Hut we have not reached our present position by basking in the glory of our success. The keynote to future progress must be not “What’s right with our school?" but. “What’s wrong?" This year has l een an important one in consolidating our position as one of the leading music schools in the South, and in increasing our scope. The first steps have been taken in the establishment of an opera school. Under the joint direction of Mr. Henry Gregor and Mr. Koch of the Dramatics de- partment, two operatic productions were presented during the year. In addition to furnishing an invaluable source of experience for our vocal and instrumental students, these operas were highly successful with the audiences. The Music School faculty has decided the time opportune for several vital curriculum changes. The catalog for 1940-'41, with its revised course of study for the degrees of Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music in Education, will comply with the standards set by the American Association of Music Schools. It may take a long time to assimilate these changes but in the long run. they will prove an important step in putting us on a par with the finest music schools in the country. One of the most heartening developments of the past year has been the increased interest in contemporary music on the part of our music students. This is due largely to Mr. Steunenberg’s influence. Our students are being taught to understand the modern idiom. The possible results of such understanding are as yet indeterminate. Its possibilities, however, are boundless. We have already attracted one of the greatest contemporary composers. Carl Ruggles, to our midst. At present, plans are being formulated for a course on modern musical trends to be presented by Dr. Ruggles. The demands for this course came directly from the students. Its purpose will be to study and discuss the works of contemporary composers. The musical organizations of the school have had a very busy and successful season. The band, always busiest, was busier than ever. It played at all the football games and even accompanied the team to Tampa and South Carolina. It played three formal concerts and participated in every parade and rally in town, from the welcoming of a new Streamliner to the D.A.R. convention. The symphony orchestra played its usual subscription series of six concerts. In addition, it played a series of five children’s concerts with Mr. Edward Clark as commentator. One broadcast and five postseason concerts rounded out the schedule. The several choral organizations received a year of intensive training. Our choristers appeared in a giant presentation of Rossini’s Stabat Mater on Easter Sunday and look part in the two operas. Mr. Reinert’s Double Quartet of male voices was es- 58pecially popular. At the rate our chorouses have been progressing, we may expect great things from them in the coming season. The Student String Quartet, under Mr. Collins’ direction, made its annual round of the broadcasting studios and the formal teas. The woodwind quintet though popular was shortlived. Our music school has tremendous potentialities for the future. Next year will be one of the most important in the school's history, for next year, some of these potentialities will be developed. Heretofore. the stress has been on developing musical organizations rather than a music school. Music, like any other form of art, is a direct outgrowth and manifestation of the time and place of its origin. Therefore, no artist, be he painter, poet, or composer, is “ahead of his time." This does not mean, however, that great art is always understood and appreciated in its own epoch. On the contrary, something radically new requires the perspective of time to be generally understood. Contemporary critics called El Greco “astigmatic” and Beethoven "ignorant of the rules of Harmony.” Today, general musical understanding stops with Debussy. Recently, one of our students, not a music student but. nevertheless, a student genuinely interested in music, said, “I can understand Tschai-kowsky or Debussy, but when it comes to these modernists, I just can't get them straight. I've listened to Sibelius for hours at a time, but 1 still can't make head or tail of some of his symphonies.” This young man would have been greatly shocked to hear that musical thought had already left Sibelius far behind. If enlightened music lovers cant understand Sibelius, it is small wonder that they laugh at Ruggles. But. how can music, which is unknown today, survive to be understood in the future? Fortunately, there are men who understand the transition from the old to the new. Fortunately, some of these men. Mr. Steunenberg and Dr. Ruggles, for instance, arc in a position to influence music students and show them the steps in this transition.

Hi net's Band With his ytandchildten in 10)7.Concert Series ■ The 1939-’40 season of the University of Miami Symphony Orchestra was marred by the death of its beloved founder and conductor, I)r. Arnold Volpe. In his 14 years at the University, Dr. Volpe built what is probably the best University orchestra in the country. His passing was a great loss to the orchestra and the school. However, under the leadership of his assistant, Mr. Joel Belov, the season was completed in a manner which was a credit and a tribute to his memory. This year was a busy one for the orchestra. In addition to the six concerts in the regular subscription scries, which boasted the greatest array of talent in the organization's history, the orchestra played five children’s concerts in the local high schools, broadcast a memorial concert on February 11, played a special concert for members of the exclusive Surf Club on March 24. and played three post season concerts at Ft. Lauderdale. The season opened on December 11, with Dr. Volpe conducting. The orchestra player! Tschaikow-sky's 5th symphony and Richard Strauss' Rosen-kavalier waltzes. The evening's soloist was the famous Metropolitan basso, Alexander Kipnis. Mr. Kipnis. accompanied by the orchestra, sang two Verdi arias. lacerato spirito from Simon Bocca-negra and Ella Giammai m'amo from Don Carlo, and Wagner’s famous “Song to the Evening Star” from Tannhausrr. So well was Mr. Kipnis receiver! that he gave five encores. They were Schumann's Two Grenadiers, Beethoven’s Ich liebe dich, Into lr Blnfrr Klpuit. Ilnroltl Kiurr, and Jiwph S lfrll rrr xilaliU with I hr Symphony Orclw»lra. the Sight by Clara Edwards, a Russian folk song, and Little Jack Horner by J. Michael Diack. His accompanist was Evelyn IMagman Jones. Joseph Szigeti. one of the world's greatest violinists, was the soloist on the January 22 concert. Mr. Szigeti played the Beethoven concerto. This was the last concert that Dr. Volpe conducted. He left a sick-bcd to direct the final rehearsal. He conducted the overture against the orders of his physician. He had to relinquish his baton to Mr. Belov for the reading of the symphony. However, he insisted on coming back after the intermission to direct the accompaniment to the concerto. After the concert, he was confined to his bed where he remained until his death, two weeks later. Mr. Belov, who was appointed to finish the series in Dr. Volpe’s stead, conducted the third concert on February 19. The orchestral portion of this concert was devoted to provocative works by two contemporary American composers, Howard Hanson, director of the Eastman School of Music, and Mr. Henry Gregor, of our own music school faculty. The assisting artist was Harold Bauer, world famous pianist, who played Beethoven’s Emperor concerto. In response to enthusiastic applause, he played the first movement of Beethoven's moonlight sonata (dedicated to the memory of Dr. Volpe) a novel-lette by Schumann, and his own arrangement of the Bach chorale Jesu, Joy of Man's Desire. Gregor Piatigorsky was the guest artist in what was probably the l)est received concert of the season. The chief item on the program was Mozart's G 62minor symphony. In this, as well as in Von Weber’s Obcron overture, the orchestra played as it had never played before in this writer's memory. Mr. Belov’s transcription of a Bach Prelude and Fugue, and Mr. Piatigorsky’s rendition of the Saint-Sacns cello concerto rounded out the program. Mr. Piati-gorsky was accompanied by Mr. Gregor in four encores. They were Variations by Von Weber, Ravel’s Habanera, Hora Stacatto by Dinicu-Heifetz, and Romance by Debussy. Mr. Piatigorsky also played the unaccompanied Prelude in C Major by Bach. The 78 year old Moriz Rosenthal was the piano soloist on the April I concert. Mr. Rosenthal, a former student of Liszt, played Chopin’s piano concerto in E minor and Minuet Waltz, and Liszt's 2nd Hungarian Rhapsody. The orchestra portion of the program was devoted to Wagner’s Ricnzi overture, Dvorak’s New World symphony, and Von Weber’s Invitation to the Dance. The final concert of the subscription season was played on April IS. The program was of a rather light nature, more on the order of a "pop" concert. The orchestra, under Mr. Belov, played the fantasie-overture Romeo and Juliette, by Tschaikowsky, and Debussy’s Clair dc Lune. The evening s soloist, and the only woman to appear with the orchestra this season, was Mrs. Mary Hughes Call. Mrs. Call gave a musicianly performance of the Schumann piano concerto in A minor. The orchestra then closed the series with a bang with Liszt’s Les Preludes. There is a move afoot to establish an Arnold Volpe Memorial Fund to insure the permanency of the orchestra he founded. Aside from this, no plans for the orchestra's future have been made public. Several weighty matters of orchestra policy will have to l e decided by the Administration before the next season starts. Foremost among these is the appointment of Dr. Volpe s successor. Mr. Belov finished the season after Dr. Volpe's death, but no such appointment has yet been made. The question, however, is safe in the Administration's hands, and we can rest assured that the decision will lie for the best of the school. In the meanwhile, we can look forward to an even brighter concert season next year. Above: Joel llrlov. Symphony Orchestra conductor.

In attempting to find the basic reason for this development, we have found that everything points to the establishment of voice classes in the curriculum. These voice classes, which are taken care of by Robert Reinert, have opened up a new field for a multitude of students. The .Men's Chorus, under the direction of Robert Reincrt, started the year off with a series of weekly broadcasts known as the "Pep Meeting of the Air." These broadcasts on Thursday evenings at 7:15 preceded the Friday night football games and served to acquaint the listening audience with not only our team and their opponents but, also, with the work of the Quarterbacks' Club. It is estimated that these broadcasts had a listening audience of some 30,000 people which indicates to some degree the excellent work l eing done by the Men's Chorus. On January 25. 26, 27, the Mixed Chorus served as a nucleus in an all-university cast in the production of the musical comedy. The Geisha by Sidney Jones. Mr. Henry Gregor and Mr. Fred Koch, Jr. were in charge and presented a very delightful musical comedy, featuring several student soloists, namely, Edwin Ginsburg, Rill Gore, and Dean Forth man. Immediately following this presentation, the Mixed Chorus resumed rehearsals under its regular conductor. Robert Reinert, in preparation of Rossini's Stabct Mater. This difficult work was j er-formed with a cast of 250 voices of which the university chorus served as a nucleus at the Holly wood Reach Sunrise Service on Easier morning. A pro- fessional band played the accompaniment. The Mixed Chorus gave an excellent performance causing a great deal of comment among the other groups present in regard to the work being done in the chorus department. So successful was the performance of the first musical comedy The Grisha, that another production was planned by Henry Gregor and Fret! Koch. Jr. This time they presented Mozart’s comic-opera The Magic Flute, with another all-university cast. This mixed chorus again played a very important part in this presentation. It seems that with these two performances this year, opera in the university is definitely here to stay. Recause of frequent requests by various clubs and organizations, a double quartette of the best male voices in school was organized under Rol ert Reinert. This smaller unit of the Men's Chorus, during the course of the school year, sang on numerous occasions for the Lions Club. Town and Gown, Miami Women s Club, Southern Association of University Women, Bayfront Park, and radio stations WIOD and WQAM. One of the most effective appearances was made at the reading of Dickens "Christmas Carol" at the University, by Mr. Koch previous to the Holiday Season. Carols were sung as incidental music and proved to be most effective. Another group of experienced vocal students, the University Singers have formed themselves into an ensemble group called the University of Miami Singers for the purpose of making records and for radio singing. One of the newest additions to the chorus department has been the latest thing in recording machines. Much interest has been developed because of the vast number of things that can be done with this type of machine. ? ? ? 9 ' BOOLwi - 65Waller Shea (Ter, r.Miilurtor; Arthur I’rjOT, tiurst comluclor: Or. Carl ItuKKlrv. KUest romluctor Symphonic Band ■ For over a | eriod of eight years, the University of Miami Symphonic Hand has developed into a noteworthy 75-picce organization under the leadership of Walter E. Sheaffer. It is a far cry from the small fifteen piece unit that was first organized in 1933. Nevertheless, there is one thing that first group had in common with the group today: they all lived and loved good music. The spirit, that Mr. Sheaffer embodied in that first unit ten years ago. has been carried over each succeeding year through the present band. Continuing the good work of last year's marching unit, the band went out and conquered new fields this year. Although it was hard for the boys to get used to getting up at 6:30 for drill, they soon found it necessary in order to perfect the intricate drills as formulated by Walter Cunningham and drum majors, Vernon Hoff and Frank Sesslcr. As a reward for their work, the administration sent the band on two trips with the football team, one to Tampa. Florida, and the other to Columbia, South Caro’ina where they created a sensation with their snappy and colorful drills. Upon the close of the football season, the band began to settle down in earnest for the coming concerts. For the first trip, the students were given the privilege of playing under Arthur Pryor, one of America’s best band conductors. For more than two months, Mr. Pryor conducted the band, talked to it as a group, individually, and gave the band students valuable in- formation regarding the concert field. As a result of this special study, the symphonic band was prepared for the first concert of the season on February 12, 1940. Arthur Pryor, the guest conductor, directed the band in such well-known concert numbers as the overture Semiramide by Rossini. Excerpts from Carmen by Bizet. The Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner, the 2nd Polonaise by Liszt. The feature of the evening was the rendition of the cornet solo by Herbert Clarke entitled Showers of Cold, as played by Norwood Dalman, the solo cornctist of the band. In this season’s inaugural concert, there were no noticeable rough spots mainly due to the conducting by Arthur Pryor who. in the short space of two months, won the admiration of every music student. For the second concert of the season, the band again was privileged to have I)r. Carl Ruggles as guest conductor. Dr. Ruggles, who is one of the foremost of contemporary comjwsers. arranged all of the music for this program which he dedicated to Walter Sheaffer. A few of his arrangements were: Canon from the 95th Psalm by Mendelssohn; Under the Linden by Massenet, which featured Florence Geschwind and Larry Tremblay in a duet for cello and clarinet. Arturo de Fillipi, a member of the music faculty, was the guest soloist of the evening, singing the Prelude to CavaUeria Rusticana by Mascagni and the air La Fleur que tu Mavais from the opera, Carmen by Bizet. On May 6, the symphonic band brought its regular subscription season to a close with the return 66of Walter Sheaffer to the podium. Evelyn Plagman Jones, an alumna of the university, was guest soloist, playing Franz Liszt's Hungarian Fan task and Tom Stcunenbcrg, another member of the music faculty, was guest conductor. Along with Mr. Sheaffer's return to the podium, came some of the alumni. Sam Head,Chuck Bue-hur. Bill Bennett, and Harry Mc-Comb who played in the concert. A few numbers included the overture Sakuntato by Goldmark; Finale from Andrea Chcnilc by Giordano: Woodland Sketches by Mac Dowell, and the favorite, I'm, Hr Have So Bananas, compiled by-conductor Walter Sheaffer. James Politis displayed good technique in his rendition of the piccolo solo. Souvenir of Miami written by Walter Sheaffer. Upon the close of the concert season this year, one cannot help reminiscing a little, because this year marks the end of eight years of musical development in the field of symphonic band work here at the university. During that time, many famous names in the musical world have come and gone. Likewise many music students have come and gone. The noticeable factor is that eight years ago Miami projK-r and Southern Florida were practically barren of music at all. Now they have it. The school does not state that its graduates are pioneers in the field, but it can point to the record of the graduates. A few of these are A1 Wright at Miami High. Felix McKernan at Miami Beach, Carl Fieri at Ponce de Leon. Stan Dulimba at Andrew Jackson. Stan Beid-ron at William Jennings Bryan. Bill Bennett at Coral Gables Elementary School, Harry McComb at Ft. Lauderdale, Charles Stallman at Melbourne, and Kenneth Snapp at Cross City. These records indicate the work the music department is doing in training its students. The work shows a thoroughness of band experience, which in itself is a tribute to Walter Sheaffer. who keeps looking ahead each year for a more perfect band than the preceding year. left: Arturo 11 Fillppl. !U«ht: Mrs. Evelyn I’Iuk'iuiii Jours, iu iiluninx.

Still maintained principally for the convenience of teachers in the area who are working for the county school board's degree requirements, this year’s courses branched out into other fields of service. Education courses have been of paramount importance in the Adult Education section since it was first founded. It has been conducted according to forms identical with those of the day division, using the same faculty and offering the same courses wherever the demand of adult students is sufficient. Grading systems and periods are also similar. ' It is natural that the local people would find the night and afternoon classes conveniently-timed and useful in their work. Especially in recent years, when the county school board has raised and reraised its degree requirements, has the adult session come to be considered as almost entirely a teacher’s training school. That the University of Miami Adult Division has done fine work in training teachers is recognized all over the state. Requirements of the Dade County school board are the most stringent within the boundaries of Florida. A large percentage of the teachers in the county schools at present have completely filled these requirements; and a large majority of these teachers received at least part of their training from the University of Miami. In spite of this fine record the Adult Division is looking forward to the time when it can serve more generally the people of this area. One of the signs of the trend toward wider service is the course, offered during the first semester in a special four-weeks session, in Hotel Accounting, which was established with the cooperation of the State Department of Instruction and the County Vocational Board. Sessions in this practical course were held both here and in office buildings in Miami. A more cultural form of civic education was shared with the day division when the Winter Institute of Literature and the Hispanic-American Institute attracted many citizens to enroll in the evening sessions. The course in the rudiments of navigation, which was offered in the day section this year, will probably be presented again to the adult division next year with the emphasis placed on the operation of sailboats. Thus the adult division is gradually spreading its scope. Dr. Jay F. W. Pearson, Dean of Administration, has been responsible for the Adult Division this year. He and the other members of the faculty have visualized the ideal aims of this section of the University for a broader application oi its curriculum. Culturally the adult division will be much more versatile; more lectures and programs of adult interest will be presented. Winter visitors will find the same sort of intellectual entertainment here as was available to them in the colleges of the North. Generally informative science courses for the layman will be featured. Not credit-earning, these courses will be offered to supplement whatever students feel they lack. In the same way people who find that they have need of a vocational skill will be able to turn to the University’s adult session and find courses in whatever they need, whether it be mechanics or bookkeeping. 68■ Varsity let ter mens’ organization at the University is the M Club, which supervises the wearing of athletic letters and awards, sponsors dances after each varsity football game, and holds the annual M Club Field Day.

Hart Morris, and Eddie Dunn, break even against ten of the nation's finest teams. It saw basketball established firmly by a long road trip. It witnessed the Hurricane netters gain more national glory, and the boxers complete a long, tough schedule successfully. It saw swimming in another successful year, and biggest of all. it saw varsity l aseball return. Coach Harding's Hurricanes, slated for their biggest season after only five men had been lost from the 1938 team that won the state and S.I.A.A. championship, made a big mistake when they chose Wake Forest for their opening game, for the Demon Deacons performed at will to make hash of any plans for a great year. So. the footliall fans had to be satisfied with a five out of ten record, highlighted by wins over Texas Tech, Drake, and North Carolina State. The Hurricane grid boys also beat Rollins and Tampa to take the state Little Four championship for the second straight year. Stetson, the other member of the historic little league, was not on Miami’s schedule this year, but was beaten twice by Rollins, who fell before the Hurricane onslaughts. Harding's gridders also tasted defeat at the hands of Florida. Georgia, South Carolina, and Catholic. Miami cagers. coached by Hart Morris, were handicapped by inexperience and went through their second bad year, winning but four out of sixteen games. Basketball requires a certain length of time to get itself settled at any school, and the 1940 outfit felt the lack of finesse and talent. Billy Regan turned out another band of expert boxers, captained by Bunny Lovett who went three years without an intercollegiate defeat. The mitt-men won four matches against two losses, beating Florida, Clemson, Columbus, and Southwestern Louisiana, while losing to Catholic and Wisconsin, as Captain Bunny, Joey Church, and Red Cameron came out with best records and were rewarded with trips to the National Intercollcgiates at Sacramento. California. April 4-7. Lovett and Cameron lost close decisions to exprienced boxers in the first round, but Church, a former Olympic boxer, went to the finals of the 127-pound class liefore dropping a close three-rounder to Sewele Whitney of Loyola of the South. Regan was elected vice-president of the association of intercollegiate boxing coaches. Gardnar Mulloy, one of the nation's few amateur tennis coaches and the country's eighth-ranked singles star, took his netters on a tour of the Mid-West and came home with a fine record after meeting such teams as Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, and Northwestern. Sophomores Billy Gillespie and Lewis Brownstein, along with Captain Bill Hardie and George Pero, were mainstays of the Hurricane rac-queteers. Mulloy's tennis aggregation was rated one of the finest intercollegiate outfits in the country. Baseball was back at the University for the first time since 1930. and Coach Jack Harding had plenty of good material to work with. The Hurricane nine had trouble filling out its schedule among Southern teams willing to come here, but baseballs first year was inaugurated successfully. Swimming had another good year, coming out victorious in three out of five meets under the tutelage of ‘‘Pop” Burr. A1 Collins and Grant Slater led the mermen to easy wins over Tennessee and Emory. The swimmers also participated in an international dual meet with a team representing Nassau. Prospects for next year are bright, since a fine frosh squad is coming up. The freshmen won the state Junior A.A.U. crown in the meet held in Lake Worth. Other sports, freshman football, junior varsity tennis, and golf had good years; the Frosh winning the state title with a resounding victory over Florida’s Baby Gators.

They were up against Texas Tech and Drake, and down against Florida and Wake Forest, but they had a tough schedule and not a few bad breaks. No alibis are being offered for an outfit which was conceded a splendid chance of going through an undefeated year. After a two-week training period at Camp Pinnacle in North Carolina to avoid Miami's late summer heat, the l oys came home to play their first game. If it hadn’t been for that opener, which ended so disastrously before a tremendous opening game crowd, the team might have fulfilled expectations, but it took the Hurricanes three games to get over that five-touchdown loss. By then, the best that could be salvaged out of the season was an even record—five won, five lost.

The most sensible suggested that may Ik- we didn't have last year's luck, and besides, there was nothing disgraceful about this season. The season went like this: after the Wake Forest debacle, the Hurricanes turned in ragged but decisive wins over Rollins and Tampa. Then Catholic t , which went to the Sun Howl later on, came down here undefeated and went back the same way The two best games followed, as Miami smashed Texas Tech and Drake, an old foe. Homecoming came next, and the Hurricanes although favored over Florida by virtue of their victories the past two weeks, couldn't get going and dropped another. Outplayed, South Carolina got a one-point decision, and the next Friday, Miami smothered a weak North Carolina State eleven. Georgia proved too fast and smart for the Hurricanes in the season's finale. There were bright spots too. though. The fullback plunging of Johnny Noppenberg and Terry Fox featured many of the games. Two sophomores stood out in the line, Joe Krutulis and Kutch Kearns, while four others, Bill Steiner, Dave Wike, Red Tobin, and Lefty Schemer frequently broke into the lineup. Don Salisbury, Joe I )ixon. and Chuck Gui-mento were standout performers in a veteran forward wall, and most of the senior backs saw plenty of action.Wake Forest ■ Twenty thousand citizens of Miami jammed into the Orange Howl on the night of October 6, the largest opening clay crowd in the history of Miami foot-hall. to see the Hurricanes open what was to have been their greatest season. Instead, they sat stunned through four quarters as a black-garbed band of Demon Deacons from Wake Forest College turned loose a trio of sj ecdstcrs that ran up a 33 to 0 score. It was quite a shock to the good people to witness their heroes bewildered by the capers of Messrs. Tony Gallovich, Red Mayberry, and John Polanski. Hut perhaps they had expected too much. The Deacs, who had the nation’s best sophomore ball club last year, had played three games before coming here, while the Hurricanes are notoriously rusty in their openers and proved it in a big way. This Gallovich, whose middle name is “Elusive,” scored three touchdowns, on runs of 18, 44, and 88 yards. The last was the one that rankled the most, for it really was a shock. The Hurricanes had charged out of their dressing room set to go places, and had traveled 77 yards to the Deacon 12 before losing the ball. On the very next play. Terrible Tony cut inside end, whizzed by the secondary and ambled down to the goal line 88 yards away. After that, the Miami fight was none too evident. Polanski, touted as a really great sophomore full-back, did the most for his team by not doing much of anything. Of course, he was very effective when he chose to hit the line, but the Carolina boys preferred to let their speed merchants step. And step they did. with Red Mayberry taking the hall over for the other two scores, once from within the 10-yard line and the other time from the 22-yard stripe. Defensively, as you have probably guessed, the Hurricanes couldn't do much. Sucker plays and delayed bucks continually fooled the line and secondary, who weren’t expecting that kind of football in their opener. That was the real difficulty. Wake Forest would have been a worthy opponent for the last or next to last game, and they’d have been -ik- V 4. f $ ■ Sophoinorr mil Mrlurr l» off for VMlir of I hr M-urvr yuriluK pickr«l up In I hr Woke l-’omt lUdtUdt. plenty tough then, for Duke had its hands full in winning 6-0. The offense was slightly ! etter, with sophomore Bill Steiner and big, blonde Johnny Xoppenberg leading the other backs. Despite bad timing, missed plays, and entangling interference, Steiner averaged five yards a try and Xoppenberg four. Terry Fox and Carl Jones came next with a three-yard gain for every ball-carrying try. Well, that was just about the story of the Wake Forest game. Chances for another great year went glimmering as those Deacon points were mounting. Hurricane inexperience, and maybe just a touch of overconfidence, had taken their toll. The irony of the whole situation is that Krskine had originally been scheduled for a warm-up encounter : instead, we get one of the finest teams in the South. There was no questioning the fact that the Demon Deacs were "on.” They had beaten South Carolina two touchdowns, walloped Elon 34 to 0, and then were caught on a bad day by a strong North Carolina eleven that beat them 32 to 0. Instead of collapsing. they came back strong, played their l est game of the season, and we had the misfortune to be their opponents. We caught Wake Forest on the wrong night. 73Tampa Downed ■ Tampa used to have a jinx over Miami teams. The Hurricanes would be sailing along, winning games and then they'd play Tampa. And the pesky Spartans, no matter how weak they were supposed to be. either won or got an annoying tie. Last year, the jinx was broken for the first time, and this year the Hurricanes did it again in a big way. Close to 500 fans boarded the Seaboard Special to travel upstate and watch Johnny Xoppenberg lead Jack Harding's boys to a 32 to 7 victory. Rejuvenated and on the rebound from the Wake Forest crackup. the Hurricanes left no doubt as to who won the game at Tampa. A greatly improved offense functioned well, and, except against passes, the defense was clicking too. The whole trip was a picnic for team and fans alike. Xoppenberg and Steiner were the big guns in the jinx-smashing Miami attack, although Corcoran, Grimes, and Jones turned in some neat ball-handling. Steiner's 28-yard punt return in the first quarter set the stage for the first Miami score, and Xoppenberg hit the line six times to finally go over for the first Hurricane touchdown of the season. Johnny Oespovich converted the extra point, as he did many times in the games that followed. Early in the second quarter. Steiner, the most promising Miami back since Eddie Dunn, slanted off tackle and dashed 63 yards down the sidelines to the Tampa 5 before he was tackled from liehind. Speedy hull buck Carl Jones ulmo t brruk away from » group of Tampa Spartan , but the upstate boy brought him ilown for a short gain. Two plays later, Hill lugged the ball over right tackle for the second marker. It wasn’t long before the Hurricanes were again on the march, this time with Xoppy, Grimes, and Jones alternating in a 71-yard drive. Xoppenberg finally slammed over the third score, and Oespovich again kicked the extra point. A few minutes before the half, the Spartans' frantic passing attack finally clicked, as Hatch heaved one to Patton down the center to chalk up Tampa's only score. The Spartans used a pocket defense around the passer and a fan-spread of receivers that bothered the Miami secondary considerably and gave Tampa its only offensive power. Shortly after the half, Steiner ran a Tampa punt back to their 34, and with Xoppenberg and Corcoran worked the ball to the Tampa 9. Mike banged through right guard to score the fourth touchdown. The Hurricanes scored for the last time early in the final quarter, when Steiner faded back to mid-field and tossed a pass into the arms of little Bobby Grimes who out-ran the tired Spartans to the goal line. The play covered 51 yards. Some 500 Miami fans, mostly students and Quarterback Clubbers, had a grand ami glorious time on the trip, although a large minority could not remcm! er many details of the game. Very few missed the train home. 74Tars came close ■ Jock McDowall brought his Rollins Tars down to Miami October 20, primed to take the Hurricanes. Rollins had its l est team in years, was undefeated, and. except for the Miami game, went undefeated the rest of the year. Hut Jack Harding’s Hurricanes managed to turn l»ck the Tars, 14 to 6. after a bitterly-fought battle. The fine play of Rollins' Justice, Daugherty, and l.ingerfelt made the game seem a whale of a lot closer than the score indicates, and Hurricane fans never could heave a sigh of relief until the final whistle blew. I-ate in the first quarter, Bill Steiner returned a Tar punt 24 yards to the Rollins 41 to set up the first Hurricane score. Successive line plays with Johnny Xoppenberg, Mike Corcoran, and Steiner carrying the l»ll took the Orange. Green, and White to the 10-yard line. Three line smashes could get no further than the 3, so the Hurricanes took a chance and it worked. Carl Jones' fourth-down pass to Corcoran was good for the score, and Johnny Oespovich kicked the extra point to make it Miami 7, Rollins 0. The Sailors from Winter Park came right back a few minutes later, when a pass-lateral play, Justice-to-Daugherty-to-I.ingcrfelt, mover! the ball down to the Miami 37. A couple of line plays put the Tars on the 8-yard line, and then Justice, who was half the Rollins team, tossed a pass into Daugherty's waiting arms tor the touchdown. On the conversion, the Tars fumbled, so Miami was lef» -,.ith a slim one-point lead at the half. In the third quarter, the Hurricanes got rolling, with Jones, Xoppenberg. Corcoran, and Steiner supplying the power plays. A first down on the Tar 3-yard line gave X'oppy the chance to smash over in two plays for the second Hurricane score. Johnny Kurucza kicked the extra point, and the evening's scoring was over. Hut the game was far from over. In the last | cr-iod. the tireless Justice and his mates battled their way down to the Miami 5. When the Hurricanes tightened up, Justice pitched one to l.ingerfelt, a really great sophomore end, who caught it just out- side the end zone, ir at least the officials called it outside the end zone. No one will ever know whether that was a score or not, but it was Rollins last threat after a stubborn fight. Rollins came down here without the services of Sammy Hardman, supposedly their fastest and liest back, and Clyde Jones, another regular back, both having been injured in previous games. With those boys back in there, the Tars had about the best offense in the state, and went on to smother Stetson twice and hand Tampa the worst licking in its history. Miami was outstanding on the defensive throughout the game, with Guimento, Dixon, Krutulis, Kearns, and Kichefski doing the sparkplugging. Those boys stopped the Tars when they had to. but the pass defense was still none too strong. It was Miami’s second win of the season, and left them in a tie with Florida for the state title, each with two intrastate victories. Rollins came just a little too close for comfort, though, and a couple of breaks the other way might have made it a Tar ball game.

Although Miami really got going for the first time of the season, an expensive fumble ami a heartbreaking interception were turned into scores by the Cards, who were one of the two teams able to beat the Hurricanes last year. For the first time, Miami had a Grade A offensive, and the defense was clicking better than usual. Hut Lady Luck had refused to smile on the Hurricanes. The game had barely started before a bad pass from Don Salisbury at center, who played sixty minutes of fine football, hit Terry Fox in the shoulder and bounced away to be pounced on by an alert Irishman on the Miami 22. Tough and slippery Cardinal backs, Brostek, Moutenot, and Pirro smashed their way to the Miami 2-yard line, from where Pirro slipped through left tackle to score. The conversion was good. From then on, neither team could get anywhere during the first half, but the Miami defense was certainly stopping the boys from Washington just as surely as the Miami backs were l eing stopped. In the third quarter, the Hurricanes came out with their usual rush and started going places. Corcoran, Fox, and Nopjienbcrg were hitting the line for plenty of yardage but couldn't get into scoring position: but even so, it looked as if Miami was back in the ball game. The third quarter made things pretty rosy, but when the Hurricanes opened up a passing attack in the final period, along came Catholic’s second break and the gloom settled blacker. Steiner hurled a nice pass, but instead of a Miami receiver, red-shirted I’ete Sachon was under it when it came down. That boy could run. and run he did! Right down the sidelines 65 yards for the score that smashed Hurricane ho|)es. It was quite a run, for not a Miami man laid a hand on him. Again, the Cardinals made the extra point good, and led 14-0 the rest of the way. A real hero of the game was Don Salisbury, who played the entire game against the rough Irishers l ecause he was the only regular center available. The hard-charging Miami line completely outplayed the heavy Catholic forward wall and was able to stop the fast Cardinal backfield in its own territory most of the time. Tom Kearns. Joe Kru-tulis, Walt Kichcfski, George Pittard, Bill Moore, Stan Raski, and Chuck Guimento played great ball in the line. Mike Corcoran paced the Miami running attack, closely followed by Nopj)enl crg, Fox, and Steiner. Constant fumbling and poor choice of plays kept the Hurricanes from clicking when they got into scoring position.

We beat Texas ■ The fighting Hurricanes of Jack Harding came into their own on the night of November 3, and moving with the precision of a machine rolled over a rugged band of Red Raiders from Texas Tech, 19 to 0. Yes, it took quite awhile, but the Hurricanes finally got rolling, and how they did roll! Miami's two great fullbacks, Terry Fox and Johnny Xoppenberg spent the evening running through holes in the Raider line opened by hard-charging Hurricane linemen. Walt Kichefski recovered a fumble on the Tech 44-yard line to set up the first Miami score. Nop-penlierg passed to Joe Krutulis for a first down on the 25, and Terry smashed to the 5 in four plays. Bill Steiner slammed through tackle for six points, and Johnny Oespovich ran in and proceeded to make the extra point good. You know, every play is a theoretical touchdown, but when a fullback sets out to pick up a few yards, he doesn't expect to find himself ending up at the goal line, 55 yards away. That's exactly what happened to Johnny Xoppenberg, when, early in the third quarter, he broke through guard and into the clear. Ten Texas players had their hands on him, but Joltin' John just kept going and finally staggered across the double stripe with three would-be tacklers on his back. A weak Hurricane punt that went out on the 28-yard line allowed the Red Raiders to make a real threat. McKnight's pass to Bingham placed the ball on the Miami 7, and in two plays Tech was on the 3. Joe Dixon slammed through on the next try to set the Texans back a yard, and the threat ended when Terry Fox intercepted a fourth-down pass on the goal line and brought the ball back 31 yards before being stopped. Getting up steam again the Hurricanes drove 69 yards in 15 plays for the final score. Fox, Corcoran, and Steiner led the drive, which culminated in Terrible Terry scoring from the 2-yard line. The Hurricane offensive was at its best, with Xoppenberg, Fox, and Steiner leading the way. Lefty Schemer turned in a good passing performance and looked his best so far. From end to end. the Miami line was a thing of perfection, every unit working smoothly and efficiently. Tackling and blocking had none of the shoddiness that was present in earlier games. Real standouts in the forward wall, if it becomes necessary to pick individual stars, were George Pittard, Walt Kichefski, Frank Paskewich, and Chuck Gui-mento. 1 lard charging linemen sure came in handy. 77Johnny Kurucxo t about to pounce on n tumbling Drake hull currier. Drake Jinx Finis ■ Top form of the season was reached on the night of November 10. when our Hurricane eleven avenged two former hitter defeats by pasting a 33 to 6 licking on a strong Drake University eleven beneath the lights of Burdine Stadium. The heavy Drake line was completely outplayed by the Hurricanes, who smashed Drake hopes for a third consecutive victory over a Miami team. Drake had won in 1937 and 1938 in close games, but was barely able to score on the Hurricanes this time. Last year, up in Des Moines. Iowa, Harding's boys dropped an 18-6 decision to the bulldogs when injuries to Eddie Dunn and Terry Fox and the bitter cold gave the northern boys an advantage. In '37, Drake managed to beat a largely sophomore Miami eleven 7 to 0. Coach Jack Harding used just about every player on the bench, so plenty of backs got a chance to show their stuff. Carl Jones. Red Tobin. Bill Steiner, Hob Grimes. Lefty Schemer, Grant Stockdale. Dave Wike, and Jimmy Curran were plenty of help to the game's three stars. Johnny Noppenberg, Terry Fox. and Mike Corcoran. Almost every combination of backs picked up plenty of yardage, and the Drake boys could never come close to scoring until the last few moments when they completed a 55 yard pass play for six [joints. Until that pass, which was completed while the fans were leaving the stadium to avoid the rush, the Bulldog offense had been able to get nowhere. The Bulldogs came down here with a supposedly stubborn defense and a tricky offense. The hard-charging Miami line, paced by Don Salisbury. Jimmy Poore. Stan Raski, Chuck Guimento. and four ends. Walt Kichefski. Joe Krutulis George Pit-tard. and Frankie Paskewich. completely smeared the razzle-dazzle before it could get started, and the Drake line was outcharged from start to finish. Early in the first [leriod. a Drake fumble set up the opening score. Corcoran picked up 20 yards, and three plays later. Mike scored on a reverse. Johnny Oespovich converted. And it wasn't long before the Hurricanes were rolling again. Red Tobin intercepted a Bulldog pass a little later and ran 45 yards for a touchdown, but the ball had to go back 20 yards because of a penalty. It took five plays this time, but the Hurricanes chalked up another score as Xoppenberg passed to Schemer. Oespovich again kicked the extra point. Terr)' Fox was the big gun in the next touchdown, which came early in the third period. The boys went 57 yards with Terry’s fullbacking doing most of the work. He finally went over from the 7. and the extra point try was unsuccessful. It wasn’t long before Carl Jones intercepted another frantic Drake pass and the Hurricanes racked up their fourth tally. F'ox. Jones, and Stockdale led the way for 53 stormy yards before Terry Iwnged for his second touchdown. Jimmy Curran’s extra point kick was good. The Miami reserves added the fifth score. Red Tobin stepping over from the 3-yard line. 78 Kox ernOio to earth after a twelve-yard twin again ! Drake.Sad Homecoming ■ Florida’s Gators, who didn’t show much promise last year, came up with an underestimated attack and a powerful defense to beat the Hurricanes in the last half before 26.000 fans a really tremendous crowd — for the state championship and the Lou Chesna Memorial Trophy. The score was 13 to 0. Last year, you remember, the Hurricanes went to Gainesville and whipped the Gators 19 to 7 in their own back yard. And it appears that the Gator has a memory like an elephant, for the thought of revenge must have motivated him very strongly. Much too strongly for a gay crowd celebrating Miami's biggest Homecoming. The Gators did a pretty good job of wrecking Miami’s Homecoming in that second half, after the opening periods had ended scorelessly. Two fine defensive stands by the Hurricanes following costly fumbles saved them from going further in the hole. The Hurricane power plays, which had functioned so well against Drake and Texas Tech, couldn’t get going against the Florida forward wall, led by Ferguson. Goff, Battista, and Hull. Gator quick kicks, strategically placed, kept the Miami eleven bottled up in its own territory most of the time. Miami's biggest threat came in the second quarter when Joe Krutulis blocked Tex Walton’s punt and recovered on the 21. Lefty Schemer’s long pass to Red Tobin slid off Red’s fingers into the end zone on fourth down, and the Gators came out unscathed. Dave Wike did some fine punting in the first half, getting off kicks of 57 and 63 yards. Three other sophomores stood out in the Miami lineup, Bill Totterdale, Krutulis. and Kutch Kearns, the latter two exhibiting some fine defensive play. Terry Fox was the Hurricanes' outstanding ground-gainer, but that isn’t saying a great deal because no one could get much of anywhere through that Florida line. Florida’s first score came a few plays after the second-half kickoff. Red Harrison, who spark-plugged the Gators throughout the game, passed to Ferguson, who was brought down on the Miami 25. On the next play, another pass. Harrison to Srnoak, scored for the Gators. Beno’s kick for the extra point was no good. In the last quarter, a sustained drive from mid-field netted the Gators another score. Harrison. Fate, and Houston led the way through the weary Miami line, with Tate finally going over. Tate kicked the point that made the score 13 to 0. Florida exhibited its l est offensive play of the season, and managed to stop most of the Miami backs in their tracks. Itcre'» n hrart bmikrr.

South Carolina's Gamecocks managed to beat a Hurricane eleven for the third time in four years, as they scored a 7 to 6 win at Columbia, S. C. on November 25. Outstanding performance of the day goes to the Miami band which drilled and played before the extremely small crowd. Had not several thousand soldiers from a nearby training camp attended, the hardy band of Miami rooters that made the trip would have constituted the bulk of the spectators.

Sophomore backs Tobin and Schemer looked the best for Miami, although Terry Fox and Mike Corcoran were in there when it counted. Lefty’s passes were one of the features of the game, as he slung them all over the field. It was here that the Hurricanes felt the blow of poor strategy. Instead of continuing Schemer's devastating passes, the Miamians chose to stick to the ground, and although they pushed the birds around the field, they couldn't manage to score with line plays. The first half was clearly Miami’s, as the Hurricanes continually threatened and kept the Gamecocks in hot water. Xo matter how close they got to the Carolina goal, the boys just couldn't seem to get it across. Carolina scored in the second half, after Steiner’s kick went out of bounds on the Gamecock 46-yard line. Stroud threw two 26-yard passes, and South Carolina led, 6 to 0. Grugan kicked the point which decided the game. Miami came right back when Noppenberg's pass to Corcoran was good for a first down on the 21. Tobin picked up 7. Noppenberg got a first down, and three plays took the ball to the 5. Schemer faded back and pitched one into the arms of Frank Paskcwich for the lone Hurricane touchdown. Oes-povich missed the crucial conversion. Co-captain Chuck Guimento led the Hurricane linemen, turning in a 60 minutes performance along with Walt Kichefski. Joe Dixon. Don Salisbury, and Tommy Kearns also played good defensive ball for the Hurricanes. 80State Bows 27-7 Pox »ho»v his victory grin iihuIii i » hr uninshrs through tlir Volf|Mirk 11 nr for a score. ■ Miami flashed back to brilliancy again following the South Carolina upset by whipping North Carolina State's Woifpack 27 to 7 in Roddey Burdine Stadium the night of December 1. It was the first athletic contest between the two Southern schools. The “1940” backfield of Fox, Schemer. Tobin, and Wike opened the game with a startling touchdown drive. In thirteen plays, never relinquishing the ball, they marched 87 yards for their initial score. With Wike calling signals. Fox, Tobin, and Schemer rambled through big holes in the State line ojxmed by the hard-charging Hurricane forwards. Terry finally slammed over for tin score, and Johnny Oespovich kicked an extra point that would have been very nice to have against South Carolina. The Woifpack roared right back, however, after recovering a fumble on the Miami 35. Fehley and Rooney fought their way to the Miami 7. and when the Hurricanes made a determined stand, the Wolves executed to perfection their famous "hip-flicker" play to score. That play, the big gun in State attack, came very close to scoring on Duke, and it caught the Hurricanes flat-footed, although they had been warned that it would appear. At the half, the score was tied 7-all. Miami's second score came after Johnny Xoppen-berg sent a 56-yard punt out of bounds on the Stale I-yard line. Bill Steiner took the return punt Iwck to North Carolina's 25, and Noppenberg and Fox worked the line until Xoppy finally banged his way over. Oespovich did not convert, but the Hurricanes had a lead that they never relinquished. Two touchdowns and two conversions in the fourth quarter brought the score to 27 for Miami and 7 for State. Paskewich recovered a Wolf fumble on their 37, and Fox smashed into the line until he scored 7 plays later. Steiner kicked the extra | oint. A little later. Fox. Noppenberg, and Steiner drove 72 yards for the final score, with big. blonde Johnny going over. Terry converted the extra point. Outstanding back on the field was Terry Fox, since the State boys just couldn't seem to stop him. Noppenberg was not far liehind, and Schemer. Tobin. and Steiner turned in fine performances. Whenever any ground was needed, the Hurricanes sent Terrible Terry into the middle of the tired Wolf-pack line and he usually came up with nothing less than a first down. He ran at about his best of the season against the Staters. The Hurricane line played a better-than-average game, as well. It opened plenty of holes among State’s 200-pounders, and very few times was it caught off guard. Outstanding for North Carolina were Ty Coon. All-American tackle in 1938, and Artie Rooney and Pat Fehley, a pair of speedy backs. In all justice to the State boys, we must add that they were finishing a heart breaking schedule of losses. The Miami defeat brought their total to eight games in which they were beaten. 81Crackers, 13-0 ■ Seventeen Miami seniors closed their college grid careers December 8. when a band of invaders from the University of Georgia turned back the Hurricanes 13 to 0 before a crowd that numbered over 16,000. A 70-yard pass play that struck out of the night gave the Crackers their first touchdown. Midway in the first half, C liff Kimsey hurled a 30-yard pass to Captain Vassa Cate, and that speed merchant burned up the yards to the Miami goal. Kldredge's placement went wild, and Georgia led 6-0 going to the half. Miami had a fine scoring opjKirtunity in the first half when Frank Paskewich recovered a fumbled punt on the Bulldog 31. but three passes, one which resulted in a 19-yard loss wrecked the chance. Neither team threatened seriously again until the second half. The Hurricanes came back after the kickoff, and battered their way 45 yards to the Georgia 20 with Xoppenberg and Steiner leading the way. The Bulldogs took over and moved the ball back down the field to the Miami 17 before Don Salisbury intercepted Kimsey s pass to halt them. In the final quarter Georgia engineered another score. Mims passed to Cate for 15 yards, and Fordham slipped through the weary Hurricanes for a 20-yard dash to the goal. The placement was good, and Georgia had a 13-0 win sewed up. Noppritlx-rg.

Big Jim Fordham, Kimsey, Cate, and Allen sparked the Bulldog offensive play, which was one of the smoothest seen here this year. Johnson and Witt were defensive mainstays for the Crackers, and sparked the big, tough Georgia line which gave Hurricane backs plenty of trouble. Johnny Xoppenberg and Bill Steiner did most of the ground-gaining for the Hurricanes, while Don Salisbury and Terr}1 Fox stood out on defense. Closing their football careers in Miami uniforms were Co-captains Walt Kichefski and Chuck Gui-mento, Grant Stockdale. Don Salisbury’. Steve Mc-Crimmon. Verdun Airies, George Pittard. Johnny Xoppenf erg. Jimmy Poore, Stan Raski. Bob Grimes, Carl Jones. Frank Paskewich, Mike Corcoran, and Johnny Oespovich. Joe Dixon did not play in the final game because of a chest injury’ receiver! at South Carolina. It was Miami's second defeat in three tries against the Bulldogs. In 1937, the Crackers invaded Miami's new stadium and climaxed a year of bringing "big-time" football to Miami by whipping the Hurricanes 26 to 0. Last year, Eddie Dunn led his Hurricane mates to a fitting finish to their greatest season by stopping the Georgians in the second half. 13-7. The contract with University of Georgia extends for two more years, and the Bulldogs expect one of their finest teams next year because of a very powerful freshman squad coming up. 82Sixteen Depart ■ Of the sixteen seniors of the University of Miami varsity football team, Johnny Xoppenberg and Cocaptain Walter Kichcfski received outstanding honors. Xoppenberg was awarded the Frank O. Spain trophy for the most valuable back field man, and Kichefski got the George Washbish cup for the most outstanding lineman. These trophies, as well as twenty-six varsity letters were awarded at the annual football banquet given by the University and the Quarterbacks Club at the Coral Gables Country Club. January 7. No captain was elected at the dinner, as has been the usual custom, since the team had decided to elect a game captain just before each encounter. The fifteen seniors awarded varsity letters were Co-captains Chuck Guimento and Walt Kichefski. Bob Grimes, Verdun Arries, Don Salisbury, Stan Raski, George Pittard, Mike Corcoran. Johnny Oespovich, Grant Stockdale, Carl Jones. Steve Mc-Crimmon. Johnny Xoppenberg. Jimmy Poore, and Frank Paskewich.

The yearlings also whipped Gordon Military Academy of Barnesville. Georgia. October 28, the little Hurricanes opened their season, as Bus Unick and Red Bogart led them in outplaying Stetson's Baby Hatters 8 to 0 in Roddey Burdine Stadium. The Stetson yearlings never threatened as the Miami line kept them bottled up in their own territory. Paul Carifeo’s pass interception and run-back to the Hatter 9-yard line set up the first Hurricane touchdown. After an exchange of penalties, Unick circled left end behind Russ Coates' and Carleton Lowe's blocking to score from the 6-yard stripe. At the half, the score was 6-0. In the third quarter, a Stetson punt was blocked and downed in the end zone for the Hurricanes' other two points. Joe Crum. Lowe. H. J. Lee. Frank Lchn, and Carifeo turned in outstanding performances for the Miami first year men. Ronnie Shaffer's 96-yard touchdown run started Ormiston's yearlings on their 18-6 defeat of Gordon Military Academy November 4. Fullback Ronnie grabbed a fumble in the second quarter and kept running until he crossed the double line, tying the score 6-all. Gordon's Stasica had rambled 77 yards in the first period to give the Cadets an early lead. In the fourth quarter, the Babycancs opened up the scoring again when Bogart's passes to Lee and Kucab placed the ball on the two-foot line. Bus Unick went over for the touchdown. It wasn't long ! efore the frosh had another score, set up by a penalty on Gordon for having an ineligible receiver past the line of scrimmage on a fourth down pass. Reddic Harris passed to Johnny Reid from the Gordon 31, and Johnny carried it across. Unick, Bogart, Reid, Gorman. Lee, Lehn. and Carifeo looked best for the little Hurricanes, while Stasica easily stood out for the Cadets. The Baby Tars of Rollins College could make but two first downs and never once had possession of the ball in Miami territory as the Hurricane frosh rolled to a 13-0 victory November 25. The Red IbiKuri l» olT on a icnln asulnsl Stetson’ Itaby Haller a I hr little Iturricaiiry open Ibelr season. 84Miami yearlings were constantly in scoring position but could cross the double stripe but twice. In the first half, the Babycanes pushed their way to the 5-yard line after recovering a fumble, and Hus t.'nick slipped around end for the touchdown. No more scoring was done until the third quarter, when L'nick again slammed over, this time from the 8-yard marker. Despite many thrusts and chances, the yearlings could score no more, and the final count remained 13-0. Howie Plasman, l’nick. Russ Coates, and H. J. Lee looked best for the frosh who showed much improvement because they had had a chance to practice their own plays while the varsity was in South Carolina. Three last half touchdowns enabled Ken Ormis-ton's boys to beat the Florida frosh 25-6, finish an undefeated season, and take the state freshman football crown in Burdine Stadium December 2 for the benefit of the Empty Stocking Fund. The Baby Gators looked plenty good, as they scored easily on a pass in the first quarter after pushing the Hurricanes around a bit, and Miami fans l egan to fear another 54-6 debacle as was last year's frosh contest between the two schools. But Red Bogart had different ideas about the matter, and after passing to his old Miami Edison teammate, H. J. Lee, to put the pigskin on the 26-yard line, he slithered around end to the 6. Russ Coates cracked into the line to the 2, and went over on the next play. The half ended with the game tied up, 6 to 6. Florida started out like world-beaters again, only to lose the ball on the Miami 26 when Carifeo stole it from a Gator back. After that, the Gators never did get the ball past the 50-yard line. In the last quarter, the Hurricanes got busy on the score and broke the tie.

Coach Ken Or-liilston tutored the tiilr rhiimplon ycarllnjn. Bogart’s passes, I.ce’s receiving, and the running of Coates and Reid, the yearlings finally punched over and led 12 to 6. A few minutes later, Joe Crum came up with a fumble on the Florida 13, and Coates kept trying till he got it across. Jack Rice accounted for the one and only extra point of the evening. A spectacular multiple play led the final score, after Johnny Reid had made a first down on the Gator 36. Harris hurled a pass to Crum, who Int-eraled to Roy Bass. Bass hung onto it for a second fumbled, and the ball bounced into Reid's hands Before the yearling Gators knew who had the ball, Reid was over for the final six | oints. Lueddcke, Carifeo. Wood, and Lehn played well in the Miami line which held the Florida boys scoreless the second half. Some twenty freshmen will be held over for varsity service next fall, and Coach Jack Harding expects to rely on his sophomores a great deal. Graduation stripped the team of sixteen veterans, many of them first stringers and the rest first line reserves. Freshmen linemen who show plenty of promise are Paul Carifeo, Frank Lehn. H. J. Lee, Ray Gorman. Joe Crum, Joe Kaldor. Bill Wood, Nick Miller, Nick Broker, and John Ciavarra. while the backs are Roy Bass. Red Bogart, Ronnie Shaffer, Roy Lewis. Reddic Harris, Carleton Lowe, Russ Coates, and Alex Bazil. Bus l'nick, most promising of the frosh backs, will probably not return next year, much to the regret of Harding and his staff, who had counted on the little 160-pounder for a great deal of action. Andy Csaky, dependable first string quarterback on Harding’s 1938 team, was assistant to frosh coach Kenny Ormiston, former Pitt All-American. 85Basketball ■ Basketball was back for the second straight year as a major sport, and the 1940 team completed a fair season under the guidance of Coach Hart Morris. The team won only four of its regularly scheduled games, but captured the annual Gold Ball Tournament sponsored by the Y..M.C.A. by whipping the University Freshmen. The cage team, which was composed of Captain Tommy Hilbish, Howie Davis. Chuck Guimcnto. and Duke Boyle, from last year’s team, and newcomers Joe Krutulis, Red Tobin. Dick Tucker, Davie Konel, Art Tracy, and David Wike, oj ened its season against the Stetson Hatters in the Miami High gym on the nights of January II and 12. The Hatters, paced by Vincent Shaeffer's sharpshooting, won a close one Friday, 33-29, and took the Saturday game. 39-27. Tobin and Krutulis looked good for the Hurricanes. Two weeks later, on the 26 and 27 Morris' bas-keteers dropped two more decisions, this time to the Rollins Tars. The play of Hilbish and Krutulis made the games close. both ending in narrow margins, but the second game saw the Hurricanes l eaten 51-50 in an overtime period.

February 3. the orange-clad quintet began its ill-fated road trip through North Carolina and Florida, during which it played eleven games; of these eleven, the Hurricanes won three. Initial loss of the tour was to North Carolina State at Raleigh by a 37-31 score. It was Miami's fifth defeat of the season and State’s first win. Captain Hilbish paced the Hurricanes against the Wolf pack. February 5. the Hurricanes lost 46-17 to a fast Wake Forest five, with Hilbish still leading, and the next day dropping a 35-26 decision to Eton. Thursday, Red Tobin and Hilbish came very close to beating Florida, but the Gators pulled away in the last few minutes to win 36-23. The following night, Florida turned on the heat and easily won, 53-26. February 10, the Hurricane cagers won their first 86game, chalking up a 39-31 win over the University of Tampa, and followed that victor)’ with another, this time a 43-42 thriller over a stubborn Florida Southern five at Lakeland. The going was easy at Tampa, but the Moccasin encounter was settled by Hurricane foul shots. Rollins manages! to get its third win over the Hurricanes, as the Tars' towering center, Tiny 1’hil-li| s, led them to a high-scoring 56-49 decision. The next night. Miami came back to win 50-49 in the second overtime | eriod. The road trip ended with a pair of defeats at the hands of Stetson on the 16 and 17. The first game ended 48-43, as Krutulis and Tobin made the Miami five a constant threat. Joe alone accounted for 21 points, while Red chalked up II. Saturday, the Hatters had an easier time of it, as Hilbish fouled out, and Stetson was able to go on to a 46-37 win. Final game and fourth victory of the season was against Florida Southern in Miami. February 23, as the Hurricanes, led by the scoring of Krutulis and Tobin beat the Mocs by a comfortable margin. A home contest with Tampa had originally been scheduled, but the Spartans were unable to come down. Throughout the season, sophomores Joe Krutulis and Red Tobin were mainstays along with Captain Hilbish. Tommy's scoring was not as sensational as last year, but the sharpshooting of Joe and Red made up for that. Chuck Guimento played a rough and ready guard post, as did Dick Tucker, former star at Miami High School. Duke Boyle, Howie Davis, Davie Koncl. and Art Tracy made capable reserves for the Hurricane quintet. Sophomore Dave Wike showed plenty of promise at the first of the season, but injured his back and was forced to drop off the team. With the exception of Guimento and possibly Davis, these players will be back next year to play on Hart Morris’ five. Miami was able to put an outstanding freshman quintet on the court, however. The frosh, coached by Kenny Ormiston, went to the finals of the Gold Ball tournament, where they lost to the Hurricane varsity, as well as losing to the Triangles for the second-half championship of the Y.M.C.A. FZast ('oast League. Outstanding among the Baby Hurricane cagers were Red Bogart, Tom Scott, II. J. Lee, and Jimmy Two Hurricane C.iKrri o up nflrr a rrltouml a n Strt»on ln l wall . pol r l for action. Kees, local high school graduates, as well as Bus Unick and Alex Basil. Other frosh were Carleton Lowe and Steve Crist. Outside of league play, in which they were runners-up, the frosh beat West Palm Beach Junior College, 36-29, Riverside Baptist, 46-29, and Hazelwood Boys Club. 48-37. In league competition, their two outstanding and most important games were with the Triangles. The first game they lost 30-29, and the second, for the championship, they lost 35-29. Against the varsity in the Gold Ball, they came out losers by a 44-39 count. 87Boxing ■ Coach Billy Regan's fighting Hurricane boxers compiled a fine record of three wins, two losses, and a tie in 1940, and sent three leather-pushers to the National Intercollegiate boxing tournament, where they made a fine showing. The team, which was one of Regan's best, was made up of Captain Bunny Lovett, little 120-pounder who did not lose a match in three years of varsity competition; Jerry O'Connell, veteran 127-pounder; Joey Church, former Olympic boxer who fought in both the 127-pound and 135-pound classes; Georgie Back, 135-pounder; Nick Seminoff, 145-pounder; Bud Stern, who fought at 155 pounds; Joe Bonanno. 165 pounder; Red Cameron, light heavyweight; and Tommy “Kutch" Kearns, heavyweight. Billy Ouerrard was varsity manager. January 10, in Clomson, South Carolina, the Hurricanes fought their way to a 4' to 5% decision over Clemson's Tigers as they opened a ten-day road trip through the East. Three days later in Washington, D.C., the Miami mittmen dropped a 5 -2 j. encounter with a powerful band of Catholic University boxers. Lovett won on a forfeit, O'Connell lost to Barton, and Church scored a T.K.O. over Tedder to send the Hurricanes into the lead. Back and Hughes fought to a draw, Bonanno lost to Bunsa of Catholic, Stern was knocked out. Cameron also was K.O.ed, and Kearns dropped the last fight to Turner. Columbus University, also of Washington, was beaten 4 to i' i by the roving charges of Coach Regan. January 16. Captain Lovett won his third fight of the year by beating Attel of Columbus, Church easily outpointed Lehrner, Back whipped Stephenson, and Miami forfeited the 145-pound division to take a 3-1 lead. Columbus' Cox beat Bonanno, Stern was the victim of a T.K.O. when Crump opened a cut over his eye. Cameron outpunched Hay men, and Kearns and Lane fought to a bruising draw. The Hurricanes won the state championship as well as plenty of self-satisfaction when they beat Florida’s Gators 5J4-2J4 February 10 at the Miami Beach Arena. Lovett made short work of Florida's Stewart, knocking him out in one minute and 37 seconds of the first round. Gator Graham decisioned O'Connell. Church and Joca battled to a draw, and Back dropped a close three-rounder to Mammon.

Conques won a very close decision over Bonanno, Cameron edged Williams, and Kearns grabbed the glory by taking tin- tying match with Campbell. A close match at Madison, Wisconsin, although the score reads otherwise, gave the powerful Wisconsin Badgers a S' i-l' i victory over the visiting Hurricanes March I. Bunny Lovett remained undefeated for the year by drawing with Sachischalt after a cut over his eye was opened. Church also was unbeaten, as he whipped Hogan. Back lost a close one to Jollymore. Crocker was awarded a T.K.O. over Norm Wayne, and Swanicutt got a T.K.O. over Stern in the first few seconds of the opening round. Bonanno dropped a referee's decision to Roth. Cameron drubbed Kramer, and Kearns lost a very close match to Lee. The Badgers publicly voted the Hurricanes their best opponents in four years. Joey Church, little Miami 127-pounder, came very close to national glory April 6 out in Sacre-mento, California, when he dropped a very close decision lo Sewcle Whitney of Loyola at New Orleans in the finals of the National Intercollegiate boxing tournament. Joey, who boasts a fine amateur record, scored a three-round knockout over Mike Cooper, a Penn State boy, in the opening round of competition, and drew a semi-final bye to enter the finals against Whitney. Idaho. L.S.U.. Wisconsin, Florida, Miami, and Southwestern Louisiana were the schools competing for the team championship. Team championship of the tourney went to the Vandals of the University of Idaho, with Wisconsin and L.S.U. trailing. Captain Bunny Lovett faced the same opponent in the first round who Ixarely beat him in the semifinals last year at Sujierior, Wisconsin. The oppon- Abovc: II. II.

Big Red Cameron also met an opponent that he had fought before. This time it was Louis Williams, big Southwestern Louisiana light heavyweight, whom Red beat in a close three rounder here around the last of February. The Louisiana I oy turned the tables this time, however, and eliminated Cameron by another narrow decision. 89Another Great Tennis Year ■ Undefeated for the second straight year, the tennis Hurricanes of the University of Miami strengthened their claim to the national intercollegiate title this year by whipping the finest net squads the East and Mid-West could offer. Coach Gardnar Mulloy, a former Hurricane tennis great himself, and now ranked eighth in the country, and his squad ran up a victor)' streak of 2.5 consecutive wins. In practically cinching the nation’s net crown, the Miami tennis stars were only following a tradition begun in 1937, when the Hurricanes mopped up Eastern colleges for their first unbeaten year. In 1938. the racqueteers met the finest teams in the West and Southwest on an 8,400 mile road trip, and drop|K‘d but three matches. East year, Mulloy’s boys swept through their season, winning ten matches and losing none, as they trounced Georgia, Mississippi, Auburn, Emory, Harvard, Yale. Dartmouth, Williams, Army, and Pennsylvania. 'Phis year, despite the loss of last season’s No. 1 singles star. Charlie Mattman. the Hurricanes won nine matches and lost none. Two scheduled matches, with Notre Dame and Ohio State, were rained out by the frequent showers the netmen met in the Mid-West. While compiling this outstanding win record, the Miami lads covered over 5,000 miles, and were gone for close to three weeks. In subduing their nine foes, the Orange, Green, and White netters chalked up a total of 56 individual matches, won, doubles and singles, while losing but 12, and definitely establishing themselves as the nation's top team. Taking leave of Miami April 20. the Hurricane racquet-swingers won their initial match on the 22, downing the University of Pennsylvania, 7 to 2, at Philadelphia. Louis Brownstein, playing the top singles position, lost to Izzy Beilis, ace Quaker netter in a two set duel, but Captain Bill Hardie, Billy Gillespie, Lew Duff. George Parks, and George Pero won their matches, l’ero and Hardie. and Brownstein and Duff captured their doubles contests, while Gillespie and Parks lost. At West Point, April 24, the rampaging Hurricanes subdued the Cadet racqueteers 7-1, with Gillespie the only losing Southerner. Brownstein and Duff had outstanding matches as they defeated their Army opjionents. The ancient and revered Ivy League was shown no mercy by the sacrilegious Miami tennis players, who slapped Yale down 6-3 April 26 and unconditionally conquered Harvard 9-0 the next day. Against the Bulldogs at New Haven, Brownstein won a tough three-set victory, while Billy Gillespie and Lew Duff were falling before Eli racquets. Hardie. Pero, and Parks scored wins, and the Miamians dropped but one doubles encounter. Although Harvard couldn't win a match, the Crimson put up a grim battle before a large crowd in Divinity Stadium in Cambridge. Both Gillespie and Brownstein were extended to three sets by their opponents. Pittsburgh's Panthers heard the roar of the Hurricane April 30, as the Mullovmen scored an easy 9-0 victory. Pitt's largely sophomore team was unable to stand up beneath the experienced play of the Hurricanes. Ohio State, Big Ten champs last year, was next on the Hurricanes’ list, but the weatherman stepped in and called a halt to the proceedings. Rain halted both this match and the one with Notre Dame, scheduled for May 4. May 3. the Hurricane netters, using a four-man team, tackled one of the toughest outfits in the North, little Kenyon. The sterling play of Pero, Gillespie, and Hardie enabled the Miamians to win 5-1 and snap Kenyon’s consecutive win streak of sixty-two victories without a defeat. Don McNeil, No. 3 ranked in the nation, played No. 1 for the Ohio lads, and beat Brownstein after a hard-fought second set. Just before heading Southward, the netmen met another powerful Big Ten team. Northwestern, and emerged with a 7-2 victor)’ after several bitterly-fought singles duels. Outstanding for Miami were 90Duff, Parks, Pero, and Brownstein. May 8, the Hurricanes met Vanderbilt, a tennis power in the South, dropped the first two singles matches, and went on to win 6-3. Joe Davis and Frank Hyden were the big guns in the Commodore battle line, as they subdued Gillespie and Brownstein. Pero and Hardie lost their first doubles encounter of the season. The Miami net season closed May 9 in Atlanta, when the Hurricanes swamped little Emory, 9-0. Though wearied by their road-trip, the Mulloymen swept through the Emory' outfit without much trouble and headed home. A day later, when they reached Miami, they were greeted with a reception on the steps of the Dade County Courthouse, which saw Mayor Alexander Orr, Coach Jack Harding, the band, and the Quarterbacks' Club officially welcome them. Following a parade down Flagler street, the netters were escorted to the University. Sophomores Billy Gillespie and Lewis Brownstein headed the Hurricane attack, alternating at the No. 1 jiosition. Gillespie is a hard-hitting netter with a strong net attack, while Brownstein relies on steadiness and a fine backhand. Captain Bill Hardie played his last season for the Hurricanes, and will be missed next year. Con- II.1% U tlir I ruin lh.it 11 imlr Miami an liitcrrollcRlule nrt puwr.r for llir fourth trnlRht year.

Hardie was a hard man to beat because no part of his game showed any great weakness. George Pero and George Parks, both juniors, boast tine tournament records as well as steady games and powerful forehands. Pero played No. 6 and Parks occupier! the No. 5 slot most of the season. Red-headed Canadian Lew Duff showed a great deal of improvement over last year and advanced to the No. 4 position. Duff, a senior, has a well-rounded forcing attack. Campl e!l Gillespie, veteran senior and older brother of Billy, was eliminated in the pre-season round-robin after a hard light, and did not make the trip. Hardie, Duff, and Cam Gillespie will be lost to the team next season because of graduation, but Dick McKee, former Miami Beach scholastic star, and Jack Waters, both freshmen, are expected to bolster the outfit next year. 91Baseball » For the first time in twelve years, baseball took its place as a varsity sport at the University of Miami. Coach Jack Harding's boys played five intercollegiate home games and went on a road trip late in May. despite the fact that most of the players were hampered by lack of practice because of jobs and spring footlxdl. The season, for those reasons, was not successful from the viewpoint of wins and losses, since the Hurricane nine could win but one of its home contests. Newberry College, intercollegiate champion of South Carolina last year, was the opening Hurricane foe. and the only foe to fall before Miami bats at the home diamond, Miami Field. March 26. the Indians played here, and were beaten in a wild 13-12 game that saw plenty of hits and innumerable errors. "Doc" Sapp. “Chick” O’Domski, and Gcorgie Hack were called to the mound for the Hurricanes, while the Miami batters slugged DeHruhl. Newberry's highly touted pitcher, to the showers. April 6. after another week of practice for the Hurricanes, a ninth-inning Tampa homer broke up the game and gave the Spartans a 7-5 victor)- over the Miami nine. “Chick" O’Domski had pitched his slow ball for eight innings, the score was tied 5-all, one man on base when Arnold Holmes homered. O’Domski and Red Tobin hit home runs, and Johnny Douglas and “Sonny" Lcalherman accounted for two hits apiece, although the Hurricanes were outhit ten to eight by the Spartans. More than 400 fans witnessed the game. Five Florida home runs, a small part of the twelve hits the Gators garnered from the offerings of four Miami pitchers, gave the Gainesville boys a hectic 18-13 victory over Coach Jack Harding's basebaliers April 9. Two Gator pitchers gave up thirteen hits to the Miami sluggers, but the Hurricanes couldn't score when they needed it the most. The Gators scored eight runs in the first inning, as "Doc" Sapp couldn't find his control and had to be replaced by “Chick" O'Domski. With this commanding lead, they proceeded to chalk up one in the second, five in the fourth, three in the fifth, and one in the sixth. Miami, always in the hole after that eight-run splurge, accounted for two in the first, five in the fourth, two in the fifth, and four in the seventh. The game was called at the end of the seventh, after three hours of the wildest playing seen on Miami Field in many a year. The number of errors made by each team was still undetermined at the last reckoning. Rollins sent a jwiwcrful nine down here April 19. and the Tars won two games from the Hurricanes, the first 16-2 and the second 13-5. In both games, Miami pitchers weakened in the closing innings and allowed deluges of winning runs to come pouring in. In the opener, the Tars led 3-2 going into the seventh, but collected thirteen markers in the last three frames. The score was tied at 1-1 at the start of the sixth in the second game, yet the Rollins boys had thirteen runs by the time the scorekeeper was through. Johnny Douglas was consistently the best hitter the Hurricanes had, and did very well at first base, although several times he was called on to relieve a troubled pitcher. Davie Koncl played second base and showed brilliant early-season fielding ability. Johnny Kurucza was a steady, hard-hitting third baseman, while Georgie Back was a ca|»able shortstop and relief pitcher.

Grant Slater and Al Collins were the mainstays of Coach “Pop" Burr’s swimmers, who splashed their way to aquatic victories over Emory, Tennessee, Shoreham A. C. of Nassau, and Havana. The water Hurricanes were sunk by Florida and Clemson. Slater swam in the 1 SO-yard breast stroke events, along with Larry Kaplan, and did part of the diving. while Collins specialized in the 220 and 440 free styles. Captain Bill Reynolds and Dave Andre swam the SO and 100-yard sprint events, and sophomore Jim Gilmore did most of the team's diving. Jack Huguelet swam the back stroke division, and along with Slater, Reynolds. Andre, and Gilmore made up the relay teams. February 8 and 9, the Hurricane mermen invaded the Bahamas to swim against the Shoreham Aquatic Club of Nassau and brought back a silver trophy to represent their 43-14 win. Collins set new island records in the 220 and 440, and Slater broke the old marks in the 100 and 200 breast stroke. Huguelet won the ISO back stroke, Collins captured both the 220 and 440 with his record-smashing swims, and Reynolds and Andre placed first and second in the sprints. Slater naturally was first in both breast stroke divisions with Kaplan second. Gilmore, Andre. Reynolds, and Huguelet won the relay events. At Clemson, February 26, the Hurricanes fell 46-29 before the strong Tigers in their first loss of the season.

Two days later in Atlanta, Burr's boys swamped Emory University 57-18. Collins. Slater. Huguelet. Gilmore, and Reynolds won firsts, and Collins set a new pool record in the 220. March 1, Tennessee's Volunteers fell liefore the strokes of the Hurricanes by a 45-30 score. Alligator Al won two first places as the Miami mermen took the medley relay, the 200-yard breast stroke, the 150 back stroke, and the relay. Other first place winners were Slater and Huguelet. Florida. Southeastern Conference champions for three years, won their forty-fourth consecutive victory at the expense of the Hurricanes. Miami could get but three second places as the Gators triumphed 61-14 at Gainesville. Grant Slater was defeated for the first time in intercollegiate breast stroke competition as Florida’s sophomore Billy Van Clief set a new pool record in the 200 yard event to whip him. The Gators also set records in the relay and 100-yard sprint. The Hurricanes won their lone home meet of the year March 23 in the Venetian Pools, as Al Collins won the 220 and 440 to pace them to a 41-30 victor)'. Slater, Gilmore, and Huguelet also won their events. Jack Burr’s freshman team won 72 points and 27 medals in taking the State Junior A.A.U. meet at Lake Worth March 3. Members of the frosh aquatic squad were Karnes Lipscomb, Carl Alles, Johnny Born, and Bob Minervini. 93 Girl’s Tennis ■ For the first time in its history the University of Miami had a girls’ tennis team. The idea of the team was conceived by Tennis Advisor, Gardnar Mulloy. The team of five girls consists of: Wilma Kesnikoff. sophomore, who. although she hails from New York, was former holder of the state championship of Arizona for three years. Along with a good steady game. Wilma possesses an outstanding serve which frequently baffles her opponents. Marcella Kaufman, freshman, who is a Miami beach lassie, has been prominent in local tennis activities for a number of years. She made quite a notable reputation for herself on the Miami Beach High School tennis team. For the past three years Marcella has been runner-up in the Girls' Florida State High School Tennis Tournament. Ruth MacDonald, sophomore, a Miamian, started her tennis career as a member of the Girls' Tennis Team of Miami Senior High School and has played in local tennis tournaments. Louise McKee, freshman, also from Miami Beach, carved a niche for herself in the tennis world by playing a consistently good game while on the Miami Beach High School tennis team. Louise has Tbrv |mi|i|r, rxerptliiK llir mriiibrr of thr malr spftln. rrpmml part of the University? Ilrst sports troni composed of jtlrls r rlu lvrl)-. Girl’ Irnnl tram Rood In its first year of competition. also participated in many local tournaments. Mae Weisiger, freshman, from Virginia, who has not yet had a real opportunity to show her ability, but who shows a promising future if given a little more experience. Gardnar Mulloy arranged the schedule and made plans for the trip, which included Tampa University, St. Petersburg Junior College, Florida Southern College, and Rollins College. Only three of the girls, Wilma, Marcella, and Ruth, made the trip. The first stop was Tampa University where the Miamians conquered their hostesses, 4-0, in the first match ever held between feminine representatives of both schools. St. Petersburg Junior College also met defeat at the hands of our feminine raqueteers, who had a comparatively easy time trouncing the west coasters. At Florida Southern the team almost met its “Waterloo’’ when Southern's Collier twins took the doubles match away from Marcella and Wilma, after one of the twins had defeated Wilma in one of the singles matches. The Miamians once more regained their stride when they defeated Rollins College 4-0. The team also played one out of state team. Mercer College of Georgia, whom they defeated 3-0. Considering the fact that the team was hurriedly organized late in the season, and that the girls had very little practice as a team, we believe that the team made a very creditable showing. Inasmuch as all the members of the team are underclassmen, the possibilities for a stronger team during the next year or two look very bright. 94Intramurals ■ This year a new system was adopted for running men's intramurals. Each fraternity was in charge of one sport, having full authority and being assisted by a student director of intramurals, John Homko. Intramural competition reached its zenith this year, competition among the various teams being very close. Real ball playing was witnessed in all sports and ail games were well attended. In football, the Lambda Chi Alpha won the tournament going undefeated throughout the season. Putting a hard lighting, aggressive, and fast team onto the field they marched through all the other teams. The oustanding players for Lambda Chi were George Hack, with his passing and Whitey Kelly, with his pass catching. TEP was second, its only loss being at the hands of Lambda Chi by the score of 25-0. Pi Chi placed third. Cooper and Konel stood out for the TEP's while Bunny Lovett. Johnny Lake, and Jimmy Munley were Pi Chi's liest men. A humorous sidelight on the tournament was the fact that TEP played more games than any other team. Its games with Phi Kps and Kappa Sig had to be replayed localise the first ones were protested. This year as in past years, the All-Star team picked by the Hurricane, played a picked alumni team. The alumni won due mainly to Gardnar Mulloy's perfect passing. Volleyball followed football as the next sport on the schedule. Due to the fact that the games were |K stponed for a long period, there was very little interest when they finally did start. Lambda Chi finished ahead of Schlitz Bros, while Pi Chi was third. Nice weather heljotl the basketball tournament get started right at the beginning of the second semester. Right at the outset it could be seen that no one team would l e outstanding, competition lieing very intense. TEP led all the way. leading the league with only one loss. In their final game with 95l i Chi they were beaten, causing a four way tie for first place. The teams tied were Lambda ('hi. TEI Pi Chi. and Phi Mu Alpha, and Lambda Chi Alpha emerged victorious from the playoffs. Paul Carifeo easily stood out way above the rest of the cagers. Good ball handling and fine retrieving off the backboard were the qualities that made him outstanding on the All-Star team. N’ormie Rout of the TEP, Stan Weiss for the Phi Kps. Vinnie McCormick for Lambda ('hi, and Charlie Wood for Phi Mu Alpha all played good ball for their respective teams. The funniest sight of the season was Phi Alpha Hob Rigney playing ball three hours after he had given a blood transfusion, a dark brown iodine smear on his arm. At the present the ping-pong tournament has just begun. There are four teams that are tied for the lead. They are: TEP. Pi Chi. Independents, and Phi Eps. Wrestling was abandoned this year because of too many injuries to participants last year. Horseshoe pitching has not U-gun as yet. The pits are still in poor condition and are undergoing a repair process. GIRLS’ INTRAMURALS ■ The fact that the University of Miami has no physical education department does not hinder the co-eds from participating in athletics. The University provides for a student assistant of athletics, who acts as chairman of the Athletic Council. The purpose of the council, which meets once a week, is to plan the schedules, to discuss any problems, or to present any constructive suggestions for the athletic program. The Athletic Council this year is composed of Charlotte Meggs. director, and one representative from each group which enters into competition. These representatives for 1939-1940 are: Wilma Resnikoff. Alpha Epsilon Phi; Irene Cropp, Alpha Theta; Beryle McCluney, Beta Phi Alpha: Lynn Bullard. Chi Omega: Sylvia Raichick. Delta Phi Epsilon; Ann Lockwood, Delta Zeta; Mae Weisiger. Kappa Kappa Gamma; Anne Sarget, Sigma Kappa; Patty Hollarn, Zeta Tau Alpha; Eleanor Gardner. Independent. A new system for managing women’s intramurals was installed this year, which provides for a manager and three assistants for each sport. This enables 96a larger number of girls to officiate at games and to prepare for the director's position. Next year's student director will l)e chosen from this year's managers: the managers will lx? selected from the assistants. The managers for 1939-1940 who are also members of the council are: Dotty Lightman, Alpha Epsilon Phi, bowling; La Rose Arrington, Alpha Theta, ping jxing; Harriet Foster, Beta Phi Alpha, tennis: Ruth McDonald, Chi Omega, horseshoes; Laura Green, Delta Zeta, basketball; Betty McMahon. Kappa Kappa Gamma, golf; Ann Graver, Sigma Kappa, badminton: Nancy Dobbins, Zeta Tau Alpha, volleyball; Independents, handball. Volleyball, the first major sport, was played off in the fall and had the largest number of girls participating with ten teams in competition. Chi Omega, by playing nine games without a loss, well deserves the championship. Kappa Kappa Gamma placed second, losing only one game, while Zeta Tau Alpha finished third with three losses. The next major sport was basketball, played off in a double elimination tournament. The fighting Chi Omegas rang up another first place as the undefeated champs. In second place was Kappa Kappa Gamma while Zeta Tau lpha ran a close third. Bowling was run off in one week at the Lucky Strike Alley. Three girls composed a team. Alpha Epsilon Phi ran away with the championship and a loving cup presented by the manager of the alley. Their final score was 1114. Kappa Kappa Gamma placed second; their score being 1001: and Chi Omega, with a score of 876. finished in third place. Tennis, golf, and badminton are still to be played.

Tliof. the function of the bin br»iv section. Between halves, the March Band ■ Sometimes 1 wonder if any of us realize just how much the University is publicized by the marching band. Perhaps only a few persons among some odd 300.000 realized that when they heard the University of Miami band this fall, that they were hearing an organization which has a fair chance of some day reaching right into the hearts of their homes, tapping their little boy or girl on the shoulder, and saying “How would you like to play an instrument in your school band?” Of course, the answer is obvious, so we need not go into detail on that point. Quite often, we overlook the good things that lie around us while casting eyes wayward for ideals to follow. To explain this may we cite as an example the remark made last year by the National American Legion Commander in Washington, D.C. After reviewing the University Hand at Griffith Stadium he said, “This is not only the best marching unit that I've ever seen in Griffith Stadium, but it is also one of the finest sounding bands I've ever heard anywhere.” Naturally this report reached Miami and this vicinity and made many people sit up and realize that another true representation of South Florida had been organized, thus bringing more fame for one youthful university. Now this matter of the band reaching into the hearts of homes and affecting them in a musical way, we have this to point out. A great many young- sters are thrilled to the very core upon seeing the smartly executed maneuvers of the band. Upon securing their parents permission to shirt taking lessons they look around for a good teacher; who do they finally get? Yes, you guessed it, a graduate of our own university. Thus, we have two methods whereby the public at large is affected by the marching band. In the Miami area, we have band-leaders: Stanley Dulimba, ’39. at Andrew Jackson High School; Felix McKernan, ’37, at the Beach; Alfred Wright, '38. Miami Senior High; Carl Fien, ’38, is at Ponce de Leon: Bill Bennett, ’38, is at Coral Gables Elementary, and Stanley Biedion, ’39, is beginning a band at William Jennings Bryan. In other parts of Florida we have Harry McComb. ’38. at Fort Lauderdale Central, Charles Stallman, ’37, at Melbourne High School, and Kenneth Snapp, ’39, at Cross City. Outside of Florida we arc ably represented by Bob Hance, '39, in Ohio. Mac Mehlman, ’38, in New York; Kex and Harold Hall, '38. in Michigan, and many others. This year another batch of competent kind men will be graduated from the University ready to step into our public schools to build bands fashioned after our own University band. This is just another step taken by the progressive music department in establishing itself as one of the leading music schools of the country.

Panhellenic composes the rush rules, bidding system, sets the date for pledging, gives advice, helps to maintain high standards of social life, and encourages scholarship. The Panhellenic Council, in conjunction with the Co-ed Council, will publish a handbook. This handbook will contain rush rules, a short history of all sororities, and a general insight to University life, which will be sent to all freshman girls. A quota system arranged by the Council will be put into effect at the University of Miami for the first time next fall. Congratulations to the University of Miami Panhellenic Council for their splendid work and cooperative spirit; and many thanks to Lucille Lefkowitz, president, for her wise leadership and hard work, and to Miss Merritt under whose guidance the Council has so successfully operated all these years.

I NT ERF R A TERNITY COUNCIL ■ This year marks the completion of thirteen years of service which the Inter fraternity Council has given to the University of Miami. This Council which was founded for the purpose of bringing about constructive working relations among the fraternities is among the pioneers of the school, for they started the foundation for intcrfratemal relationships. But only through continued good will and co-operative working can the Council continue to be a success for the University is still in a growing stage, and needs complete cooperation in all its undertakings. Due to the fact that six of the fraternities on campus arc now national of high standing and only one remaining local, much attention will be focused on the Interfraternity Council from now on because new problems will constantly arise. The Interfraternity Council officers for the past year were: Jack Madigan, president; Hal I.eviton, vice-president; and Buddy Cohen, secretary-treasurer. Representatives from the Universitys' seven fraternities to the Council were: Kappa Sigma. Eddie Grubb, Bob Olson; Lambda Chi Alpha. Bud Stern, John Hom-ko: Phi Alpha (Pi Kappa Alpha), Jack Madigan.

Audrey Rothenberg was Alpha Eta's first president. Other girls who became charter members were: Freila Speizman, Selma Lee Philips. Estelle Kasanof, Lucille Lefkowitz. Bernice Simpson, Rita Bornstein, Sylvia Locke. Jo Carol Weinstein and Thelma Maremont. However, during the same school year Edith Pearl, June Hvams, Selma Bronston. Beatrice Dresher, Kathryn Morris. Barbara Neufeld, Denise Penchlna. Wilma Resnikoff. Rose Segal and Ethel Wolfe were also initiated to help fulfill the duties and receive the pledges of Alpha Epsilon Phi. Previous to February. 1938, Alpha Eta Chapter was known on campus as Theta Chi Omega. Audrey Rothenberg, Cecile Alexander, Harriet Kahn, Evelyn Korn, Rhode Lichtman, Sylvia Upton, Lucille Walters and Edna Wolkowsky were the enthusiastic girls who first formed Theta Chi Omega in October, 1934. Each girl has co-operated to the greatest extent to do her best for her two most vital interests: Alpha Epsilon Phi Sorority and the University of Miami. They have individually and as a group been prominent on campus. They are active and well represented in such honorary organizations as Nu Kappa Tau, Lead and Ink. Panhellenic. Theta Alpha Phi. Athletic Council and Honors Literary Society. Their prominence has not been limited to the local campus but nationally as well with their representation in the national Who’s Who in American Colleges. They have offered their services by contributing to the University Library, entertaining the entire student body, and other contributions such as | ersonal and financial aid to unfortunate Americans and Europeans. The Alpha Eta chapter members have l een well known in literary circles of the University living on staffs of publications: they have made memorable positions in the music department: they have been active and victorious in the intramural activities. October 7. 1939, was a gala day for Alpha Epsilon Phi girls. Pledge service was held in their chapter room after which initiation was held for the previous pledges. This was followed by their traditional banquet. Since that day they have been hostesses at other dinners and dances for their actives, pledges, and the entire student body of the University. They were also afforded the pleasure of a visit from their National Province Director Mrs. David Gordon of Columbia, Tennessee for whom the girls extended their usual courtesy and hospitality. This year has l een an eventful and happy one for Alpha Eta chapter. Its members look forward with great anticipation to the coming years. I.urlllr Ufkowll .

During the three years of the Sport Club's existence, its members emerged undefeated in ever)’ intramural activity, including volleyball, basketball, bowling, tennis, and swimming. On the University campus, they received high representation scholastically, politically, socially, and athletically. Being formally installed as Alpha Theta sorority in September of 1938. the Sport Club joined the ranks of Greek letter organizations on the campus. As sorority women, the Alpha Thetas, although a young group, have achieved many triumphs. The position of “Varsity Girl" was held by members of the group three successive years; recognition in the Queen of Clubs contests has been granted members of the sorority. Various editorships on the two publications, the Hurricane and Ibis, have been held by members of the group. Associate justices of the honor court, vice-presidents of the student body, class officers, student senators, Xu Kappa Tau initiates, and organization heads have been selected from this group of sorority girls. Who’s Who in American Colleges ami Uni- Hilda IMitgtilum, Ij llo»e Arrington, Irene C.ropp, livalyn Daniel, June llurr. versifies has listed three Alpha Theta members. With “Sportsmanship is our aim" as the motto of Alpha Theta sorority, fair play and good sportsmanship is stressed in all fields of conquest. Participation by each girl in intramural activities is urged. Interest in extra-curricular activities is encouraged by requiring each member to engage in at least two varied fields. Selectness in rushing and pledging is observed. Recognizing the outstanding pledge in each group of initiates, the active members annually award a trophy to the deserving recipient of this honor. Alpha Theta's annual Spinsters' Stomp gives the girls an unusual opportunity, as the order of dating and breaking on dancing couples is reversed for the one night. Thanksgiving and Christmas charity work and the sponsorship of a faculty tea are other annual activities engaged in by the group. While the cornflower is the floral emblem of Alpha Theta Sorority, royal blue and gold rank as the group's colors.

Beta Phi Alpha is one of the twenty-three national Panhellenic fraternities for women, being founded in May, 1909 at the University of California in Berkley. Beta Phi Alpha was the first sorority founded on the Pacific coast of America. Since its beginning chapters have been installed in many of the leading colleges of the United States. The purpose of Beta Phi Alpha is to maintain high scholastic standards as well as high social standards at the various universities. and to encourage its members to enter and cooperate in school activities. In an endeavor to maintain these purposes the Alpha Iota chapter has cooperated with members of the student body in all activities. Many of its members have held responsible offices and have done exceptional work in various student organizations. This chapter has also endeavored to maintain above average scholarship, having in its permanent possession one cup offered by the Miami Panhellenic for su| crior attainment in scholarship and have had the second cup in its possession for two years. The national also offers a scholarship plaque to the chapters who rank in the upper ten percent on their campus in scholastic average. One of these plaques was awarded to Alpha Iota chapter, one of only five chapters to win this honor. In connection with the national sorority, the chapter offers to its members the Mary Gordon Hollaway Fund. This is the form of a scholarship for graduate students desiring to do further study in some particular field. Alpha Iota is proud that one of her charter members now holds the scholarship fund and is working on her doctor's degree in chemistry. As rewards to its members, the national offers several rewards for outstanding work. Among these is the Service Award, given annually to the girl who has served her chapter and school in an outstanding way for the past year. Among its more important activities Beta Phi Alpha boasts that it has led the way in the movement for weekly programs in fraternity chapters. In connection with this a cup is presented to the chapter which sjxinsored the best program for the year. Beta Phi Alpha holds its conventions bi-annualiy. The convention was held last year at Asilomar. California, with the Alpha chapter, including the six founders acting as hostesses. The fraternity magazine is known as the Aldebaran, and is published quarterly. The local chapter besides cooperating with the national social activities holds its annual Mother’s Day breakfast, as well as Founder's Day ritual and banquet: and as its welfare project entertains a large group of underprivileged children with an Easter Party. All of these activities are combined to provide development of the individual as well as to promote friendly relations with other groups. Jimmie Anne Thomas KIlaKrnr llorr.

IllKappa Kappa Gamma DELTA KAPPA CHAPTER ■ On November 18, 1938, a new chapter was added to the seventy-two chapters already existing in Kappa Kappa Gamma fraternity. This baby chapter. Delta Kappa, was installed in the University of Miami shortly before the sixty-eighth anniversary of the founding of the fraternity at Monmouth College in 1870. In the course oi its existence. Kappa Kappa Gamma has l een first to initiate important measures which other fraternities have since followed. Kappa Kappa Gamma called the first National Panhellenic Convention. representatives of the seven women's fraternities meeting in Boston, April 16, 1891. During the World War, through the interest of Dorothy Canfield Fisher, a dispensary was established and maintained in the little town of Bellevue-Meudon in France. It was carried on for several years after the close of the war, until it was taken over by a local organization. The fraternity magazine, The Key, was founded in 1882, and was the first of such publications undertaken by a women's fraternity. Beginning with the fall of 1929, Kappa was the first women's fraternity to use the system of co-organizers, sending to her new chapters girls versed in fraternity matters, who help the members of a newly installed group to adjust themselves to the methods and requirements of well-organized chapter life. Dorothy Ashr, Winnie Wood, llflwcn Parltnni. Joan Ellis, Mary Llnrawcavrr, Hrvrrly hack, The most important action made by Delta Kappa chapter was the step taken last fall to obtain a house, one of the first sorority houses on the campus. ’ Among the honors won by the Kappa Kappa Gammas this year is the 1938 Panhellenic scholarship cup, with the highest scholastic average ever attained by any sorority at the University of Miami.

Sigma Kappa is the fifth oldest among all Creek Letter Societies and it has been a member of National Panhellenic since 1904. At one time the chapter membership was limited to the number of twenty-five, but has since l een extended to forty. Beta Delta Chapter, along with its sister chapters, contributes annually to the National Philanthropy of Sigma Kappa, the Maine Seacoast Missionary Society at Bar Harbor, Maine which was founded in 1905. The chief purpose of this mission is to give religious and benevolent aid to the neglected communities and to the isolated families along the coast and on the islands of Maine. The aims of Sigma Kappa are intellectual. spiritual, and social leadership which are to the utmost, upheld by all of the members of Beta Delta Chapter. The University of Miami Chapter has. in just the year since its installation into the national fold of Sigma Kappa, taken an active | art in the affairs on and about the college campus, whether they have l een social or included in the regular college curriculum. Since last March, Beta Delta of Sigma Kappa has taken two honorary initiates into its group. Those initiates were Vivian Veiser I-aramore, the poet laureate of the state of Florida, and Eunice Tietjens. noted poet and author. In October, Beta Delta Chapter was honored by the visit of Mrs. Edna Parker, the National Traveling Secretary of Sigma Kappa Sorority, and many affairs were given in her honor. Sigma Kappa Sorority is continuously growing in recognition of the good that it is doing and in the number of girls who join its ranks, and it is the aim of Beta Delta Chapter at the University of Miami to contribute all that is possible toward the future growth of the sorority.

Sigma Phi sorority, which was founded by Ruth Hryan Rhode and was the first sorority at the University of Miami, became the seventy-seventh chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha and the third National Panhellenic Congress fraternity on the campus. Today Zeta Tau Alpha has eighty chapters in the United States and Canada, eighty charterer! alumnae groups, and many unchartered clubs. The membership totals approximately 14,000. Zeta Tau Alpha, one of the oldest Southern born organizations to bear a Greek name, was founded October IS, 1898, at Virginia State Teacher's College, Farmville, Va. It was the first fraternity chartered in Virginia, and the first woman’s fraternity charterer! by a special act of the legislature. In size Zeta Tau Alpha is the sixth largest of the twenty-two National Panhellenic Congress fraternities for women. In seeking to help those outside its circle Zeta maintains one of the most widely known philanthropic projects, Zeta Health Center, in the mountains of Virginia. Here a registered nurse is on duty at all times. Zeta Tau Alpha maintains a national scholarship fund which was established in 1912. Since that time over 300 college girls and non-Zetas have been assisted. Themis is the official magazine and one Martha Dora, Kathleen Wilson, Betty Lou Baker, Patricia Hollara, Virginia Spaulding of the highest rated publications in the Greek world. Other publications include a two-volume history, the first two-volume history to be published by a woman’s fraternity: a song book; technical manuals and directories: and the Chain and Link, secret publications. Zeta Tau Alpha has a threefold interest in scholarship, athletics, and social activities, and the members of Gamma Alpha have successfully carried out this aim. Members this year have held such outstanding offices in the student organizations and classes as associate justice of the Honor Court, secretary of the Co-ed Council, treasurer of the sophomore class, freshman senators, vice-president of the Panhellenic, vice-president of the Y.W.C.A., positions on the staffs of the Hurricane and Ibis, and have had leading parts in the dramatic productions and the operetta. A member of Zeta was “Varsity Girl" and named in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. Six Zetas were sponsors for the football games this year, and three were candidates for “Kappa Sigma Girl" selected at the Kampus King Kapers. For the second successive year Zeta Tau Alpha won the cup for the most beautiful float in the third annual Georgia-Miami football parade. Throughout the year the chapter has had a series of social events. A Christmas formal at the Royal Palm Club, buffet suppers, a tea for the alumna; and patronesses, bridge parties, and a luncheon during Christmas for the actives and alumna; were held. Zeta Tau Alpha has participated in all women’s intramurals, and many of its members have been athletic managers and assistants. Phi Mu Alpha's third annual Song Fest on April 26th was won this year by Gamma Alpha chapter. On April 27th we gave a benefit bridge party at the Venetian Pools. There were 75 tables and the entire affair Was enjoyed by all those present. 116Sigma Alpha Iota Top row: Beatrice Collins, president; Catherine Pinder, vice-president; Audrey Thomas, secretary; Helen Nielson, treasurer.

On April 5, 1895. the ('hi Omega Fraternity was In-gun with the aid of Dr. Charles Richardson, a Kappa Sigma. Organized on a national basis, it has grown to comprise 94 active chapters in practically everj- state of the Union. Chi Omega is not merely a social organization. but includes in the history of its growth, many worthwhile accomplishments. Each year a National Achievement Award is presented to a woman outstanding in the field of business or finance, professions, arts, letters, public affairs, or education. Some of the recipients of this award have been: Judge Florence E. Allen. Frances Perkins. Josephine Roche, Katharine Cornell, Dr. Florence R. Sabin, Cecelia Beaux, Beatrice M. Heinkle, and Rachel Crothers. The open motto of the fraternity is ‘‘Hellenic Culture, Christian Ideals." The local chapter of Chi Omega had the distinction of being the first national fraternity on campus. The installation of the Upsilon Delta chapter took place on December 17, 1936. Chi Omega now has the largest membership of any fraternity on campus with 54 active and pledge members. This year will long be remembered in the history of the Upsilon Delta chapter, lie-cause a chapter house has l cen maintained successfully. The Chi Omega house is one of the first sorority houses to exist on this campus for the convenience of out-of-town members. Chi Omegas believe in their policy of participation in campus activities. Their members are to be found as officers in woman’s organizations, the student government association, language clubs, honorary fraternities, religious groups, and campus publications. This year, Chi Omegas have been: vice-president of the student govern- ment, president and vice-president of the Y.W.C.A., vice-president of the Newman Club, president of the Spanish Club, vice-president of the sophomore class, secretary of the freshman class, vice-president of the Co ed Council, president of B.S.U., sorority and statistics editor of the Ibis. Members are to lie found in Snarks, creative writing club: Nu Kapjxi Tau. woman's honorary; Debate Council; and Lead and Ink. Chi Omega had four candidates for Kappa Sig Girl, and 4 candidates for May Queen, one being crowned Queen and another runner-up. Upsilon Delta captured the woman’s intramural crown for volleyball, basketball, baseball, and the Athletic Trophy for 1939-40 and participated actively in all other sports. Chi Omegas were in the social whirl throughout the year. The annual Christmas dance was given on December 29 at the new chapter house with a midnight buffet supper. During Homecoming week-end Chi Omega held open house, and won the skit presented at the street dance. Several buffet suppers, teas, and showers were also enjoyed. In March, a dinner was given for Mrs. Chase Woodhouse, Director of the Institute of Women's Professional Relations with a round table following. The Chi Omega Carnival dance, held on April 5, at the Coral Gables Country Club, was a highlight of the social season. The general air of hilarity and revelry prevailed in games of chance and skill, climaxed by the presentation of a Carnival Queen. Another of the policies which was fulfilled was that of social and civic service. The chapter chose a group of 50 underprivileged children in December. Three functions were given for these children for the remainder of the year: a Christmas party, an Easter egg hunt, and a picnic at Greynolds Park. With the end of such a happy and successful year, Chi Omegas are united in interests as well as in spirit. 119Top row: Mollic Connor, president; Charlotte Meggs, vice-president; Catherine Hefinger, treasurer; Jacquelec Blue, secretary: Virginia Allen, pledge adviser.

Upon closer examination, it was discovered that the creature was one of those uncommon freaks of nature known as the lowly pledge, in a state of “hell week.” • Hell week" is that transitional jxriod in the life of every fraternity man immediately preceding initiation. As his period of ordinary pledgeship might have been insufficient to prove his worth to the fraternity, he is subjected to a final series of tests. It is during this time that one is liable to encounter usually normal persons wandering around with eyes closed, hair on end. clothes looking as if the victim Training for Hell Week by guarding a bonfire. A V.C. 'warms up for Hell Week. 122 True Hell Week sufferers rest.had slept in them all week (as indeed he had), and a general demeanor of helplessness. During “hell week" classes attain a new significance. They are no longer dull sessions which must lie endured. They are blessed havens of repose, during which the pledge may peacefully sleep, uninter-ruptd by actives, classmates, or even the professors, who prove to be understanding people. The ingenuity of the actives is never exercised as much as it is during "hell week." It takes a good deal of thought to keep the pledges continuously busy, right from early morning to early morning. After all, pledges and actives alike soon tire of midnight treasure hunts, long hikes back from the wilderness. relay races and nights spent in jail. New diversions, such as reading tombstones in a lonely graveyard in the moonlight, frequently enliven the routine. The unusual part of "hell week" is that it is never appreciated until after it is all over. It's fun to look back and remember when you counted all tin railroad ties on Dixie Highway between Red Road and Ponce de Leon boulevard. Although at the time you may not enjoy pushing match sticks across a floor or collecting autographs, it will all make a great story to tell the folks back home. Sometime during "hell week" each pledge solemnly swears he will be more lenient with the next group. He keeps his promise until it is his turn to put through the next class, then—watch out!

Of these men. William Grigsby McCormick, George Miles Arnold, Edmund Law Rogers, Frank Courtney Xicodcmus and John Covert Boyd. William McCormick is the only living founder. The fraternity absorbed the local fraternity, Pi Delta Sigma, and was installed by the Worthy Grand Master of Kappa Sigma. Allen G. Ritter, on September 9, 1939. But this was not accomplished before much hard work and effort had been expended by the local president. Robert Olson, the members of the local fraternity, and the Kappa Sigma Alumni Association of Miami. Part of the French Village was taken over and renovated by the members and now the chapter operates a house at 3616 Le Jeune Road. The Epsilon Beta Chapter, the 113th Chapter of Kappa Sigma, has always taken an active part in the social, athletic, political. and scholastic activities of the university. Members of the fraternity have held important spots on the varsity football and swimming team. The present co-captain of the varsity football team and the past captain of the varsity swimming team are members of the fraternity. And through the past year a member of the fraternity has captained the wrestling squad. The fraternity is well represented on the freshman athletic squads. In intramural participation the fraternity always ranks high, participating in every sport. This year the director of intramurals came from the chapter. The members are well represented in the student government of the university. The president, treasurer, a senator and two members of the Honor Court are included on the chapter roster. Two members have distinguished themselves in the University Symphony, Band, and Glee Clubs. The fraternity is well represented in the Sigma service and honorary organizations on the campus. Three are members of Phi Beta Gamma, honorary law fraternity: four arc active members of the University Chemical Society; the president of the Lead and Ink wears the Crescent and Star; APO claims another member: six of the members are studeni assistants in the various departments of school. This year's managing editor of the Ibis belongs to the local chapter while the faculty advisers for a couple of the literary organizations are alumni of Kappa Sigma. Since the organization of the local, Kappa Sigma has had at least one man in the Iron Arrow every year; this year there arc two, one of whom heads the organization. The Epsilon Beta Chapter of Kappa Sigma is the sponsor of one of the biggest social events on the social calendar, the annual Kampus King Kapcrs. This year it was held at the Miami Biltmore Country Club for the benefit of the Lou Chesna Memorial Fund. The chapter chose Helene Putnam as the Kappa Sigma Sweeteheart of 1940. A free dance was held for the students of the university to conclude festivities on class day.

LOS-OMEGA 7. ETA CHAPTER ■ On February 3, the national fraternity of Lambda Chi Alpha installed Delta Sigma Kappa as a subordinate Zeta to be known as the Epsilon-Omega Zeta of Lambda Chi Alpha, with its house at 405 Viscaya Court. The local fraternity, which was known as Delta Sigma Kappa, was founded in 1927 by Carl Starace, Edward Starr. Gil Brom-aghim, Leonard Bisz, and Robert McDonald. These men adopted the ‘‘Lamp of Knowledge" as their symbol. With additional men acquired through a choice system of pledging, the fraternity won the Julius Dammenstein Scholarship Trophy which, on its own merits, symbolizes the highest scholastic award attainable. The founders were beginning to realize their ideal while the fraternity was still in an embryonic stage of growth. Inspired by this early success and the desire for University recognition, the local society entered athletic competition and won the Balfour Intramural Trophy exactly four years after its founding. Keeping pace with this rapidly moving external progress, was the group of the complete. compact ritualistic organization of fraternal character. A financial program was set up to meet all possible situations. Pledgeships were ruled with a firm hand. CmrRr Hack. John llomko. Pul Welland, Frank Pn»kr«lch but guiding and constructive hand. These primary requisites have been carried down through the fraternity's history to the present time with definite adherence to the founders' policies of formal order and high standards of efficiency. Under the onslaught of an economic decline. the local group was obliged to curtail activities somewhat. Membership was reduced but through the energetic efforts of Robert Turner, a mathematics assistant, and Robert Manley, boxing team captain, membership was soon built up again with men of high caliber such as Gardnar Mul-loy. captain of the tennis team, Marvin Black, intramural director. J. J. Varner, and Harold Brion. These men and their associates built upon the foundation of idealism established by the charter members. a fraternity which, during the years extending from 1933 to the present, has attained the acme of prestige and achievement. During the mentioned span of time the local was responsible for the retirement of a throe year intramural trophy, the Song-fest plaque, held important offices, including student senators, class presidents. Hurricane staff writers, student body presidents, captains of three football teams, a l oxing team captain, captain of the tennis team, captain of the golf team, three officers in the Iron Arrow, ten student assistants in various scholastic departments, a member on the swimming team, two men on the wrestling team, an assistant intramural director, a holder of Intercollegiate National Tennis Titles, and the 8th ranking man in the National Tennis singles. Early in 1938 the local group obtained as sponsors, two faculty members, professors Walter Scott Mason and Otho V. Over-holser, both Lambda Chi Alpha men. Through their associations and those with Mr. Tom F. Smith, president of the Lambda Chi Alpha Alumni Association of Miami, members of Delta Sigma Kappa realized the importance and value of having national affiliation. 127Top row: Sydney Kline. superior; Paul Epstein, vice-superior; Harold Leibman, treasurer; Morton Herman, Ernest Stern, secretary.

Seven young men. representing ever)’ field of university activity, joined together to form the first national fraternity on the University of Miami campus. Since that memorable day, Phi Epsilon Pis at Miami have always been leaders and willing workers in every scholastic and extra-curricular field. Aaron Farr, one of the founders of this chapter, was largely instrumental in the organization of the University band. Many of the alumni have their names recorded in the annals of many of the school organizations. The fraternity has had men playing on the varsity football squad, and participating in basketball, tennis, swimming and golf. Phi Epsilon Pi has grown along with the University of Miami. Side by side the fraternity has increased its enrollment until it now numbers 50 men contrasted with the original seven. All sections of the country are represented in the roll .New England, mid-west, far west, Middle Atlantic and Deep South have sent men to join our group. 1939 was a banner year in the annals of the fraternity. Reaching the climax of a successful social season, the chapter gathered once again at the Coral Cables Country Club to commemorate the 10th anniversary of allegiance to Phi Epsilon Pi. Many notable members of the administration and prominent business men in the Miami area attended the banquet. This year. Phi Epsilon Pi has risen to great heights on the campus of the university. The fraternity is represented in the Student Covernment of the university by Alfred Lane, who holds the position of Associate Justice of the Honor Court. The man- ager of the varsity football team, Phil Opt-ner. is also a member of the brotherhood. The fraternity also has the distinction of having one of the brothers on the varsity football team. Michael Schemer, called by experts the outstanding passer in the South, was a sophomore of whom much was expected. With the appearance of Lefty into the game, the crowd immediately sensed that an aerial attack was about to be launched. A great disappointment was experienced by all when Lefty signed a contract to play pro baseball with the Jersey City Ciants, leaving the Hurricanes without the ambidextrous forward passing star. In the world outside of school, Phi Epsilon Pi has maintained an enviable record. The chapter house at 3914 Le Jeune Road has l een the meeting place of fraternity men and independents alike. The climax of the season was a dinner dance given in the honor of the fraternity at the home of Stuart Allen Cohen. Phi Epsilon Pi has always endeavored to maintain a standard of high scholarship and good sportsmanship in accordance with the spirit of a rapidly growing University. I’uul KpMrln.

Under the leadership of MacMehlman, Sigma Phi Zeta petitioner! the largest national music fraternity, and on March 5, 1937, this local group was installed as Beta Tau chapter, with twenty-six charter members. After a year, Beta Tau claimed forty-five actives, making it one of the largest chapters in the fraternity. Although a professional honorary fraternity, this chapter engages in many extracurricular and intramural activities, including touch football, basketball, and diamond-ball. Beta Tau holds the Coffin Trophy, has provided varsity basketball players, presidents of the student body, and dominates the music scene as a group. Serenades of the chapter are well known, as are the annual “Swingfest"; and “Song-fest” which it sponsors every year. Sinfonians have contributed many songs to the “traditionals” of the school, not to Ray Cml, Vie Tantiito, Win. Knock e, Tony Vniulenbcrtf. Dick III . KiMir RauniKorlrii mention they are among those who make the nucleus of almost any dance band for school events. Brothers of the Red and Black who have graduated may be found conducting bands and directing music both in the schools of the Miami area and in schools of northern cities. Three have found places on the University faculty, besides six honorary faculty members. This year Beta Tau added to the brilliant list of honoraries an outstanding band conductor and composer, Arthur Pryor; along with the conductor of the University Symphony, Joel Belov. Beta Tau started the ’39-'40 year with thirty-two actives and did not pledge until after Christmas when five were taken into the group. Several banquets and smokers were held during the year, but because many of the members worked besides going to school, full participation until recently was limited. The annual “Songfest” was presented this year for the third time, with an almost complete participation of campus groups. The Sinfonia Plaque, presented to the winners of the Songfest, went this year to Pi Chi (for the second successive year) and Zeta Tau Alpha. As usual, a free dance followed the evenings’ vocal efforts. An annual concert this year will inaugurate the first “Memorial Concert” by Sinfonia. in honor of Brother Arnold Volpe, whose memory lives on in his music. The concert will also differ this year in musical make-up. Featured will be Arturo de Fil-ippi. with small groups, such as, string quartets, brass ensembles woodwind quintets, and the Sinfonia chorus. Much of the music presented will be that of Mr. Volpe's. 130Top row: Anthony Vandenburg, president; William Knoche, secretary; Ray Creal. treasurer; Richard Hiss, historian; Victor Tantalo. warden.

Over 50 active members and alumni of the Miami local were initiated into II K A. Founded at the University of Virginia on March 1, 1868. Pi Kappa Alpha is one of the oldest and largest national fraternities in existence. Gamma Omega became its 80th chapter in leading colleges and universities throughout the entire country. Attended by Or. Freeman H. Hart, national president. R. M. McFarland. Jr., executive secretary. Horace S. Smith, district president, and other national officers, initiation ceremonies were held on Saturday, May 18, at the Country Club of Coral Gables.

Representatives from the University of Florida. Georgia, Emory. Mercer, and Georgia Tech chapters and members of the Miami 11 K A Alumni .Association also participated in the installation services. Phi Alpha's history dates back to July 8, 1926 — the fraternity being founded before the University of Miami came into being. The first enrolled student at the University was Francis Houghtaling, the first charter member and president of Phi Alpha, and its other eight charter members were all leaders in the early development of the college. The fraternity was founded with the aim of furthering the friendliness of true college spirit, to aid in the embetterment of the college of which it is a part, and to promote the type of brotherhood and friendship which denotes the highest and truest bonds of fraternalism. It has always maintained high scholastic and cultural standards, as well as active participation and leadership in extra-curricular activities, and membership to the fraternity has always been highly selective. For the | ast eleven years the chapter has maintained a house, and at present it is located at 1428 Avenue Sorolla, Coral Gables. Highlight of the year's social events is its traditional closed Easter Formal, an annual Open House. Homecoming party in honor of old grads, and many other social affairs are also held during the school year by the fraternity. Of the present body of 36 active members, Pi Kappa Alpha has the Editor-in-chief and Business Manager of the Hurricane, President of the Interfraternity Council, four members of the Student Senate, Chairman of the Junior Prom. President of the Religious Council, five student assistants. President of the Junior Class, Managers of the debate and varsity football teams. Vice-President of the YMCA, five members of the University of Miami Aviation Club, four members of the “M” Club, representatives on the football, basketball, tennis, swimming, baseball, and other athletic teams, and members in every extra-curricular activity. The fraternity colors are garnet and old gold, and its publication is the Shield and Diamond.

It was formerly a local fraternity, Delta Epsilon Phi, and it was the only local to go national in so short a period. Since its inception, many noteworthy events have come to pass for the organization. A fraternity house has always been maintained in close proximity with the main part of the campus. At present the home of the TEPs is located at 1121 Andalusia Avenue in Coral Gables. The chapter has just completed three years on the University of Miami campus. It is proud to look back on these past years which have flown by all too soon. Many precedents have been established by the Tau lips, including, among others, the annual Thanksgiving day dance and the Anniversary dance. In extra-curricular activities Tau Epsilon Phi has come to the fore in many fields. The organization has participated in dramatics, debating, and journalism. Three of the four men on the varsity debating team are TEPs. The TEPs have been the leading contenders for the Coffin Trophy ever since its existence on the campus. In intramural athletics the organization has always been known for its mighty teams. The fraternity ranks second in intramural football and is tied for first place in basketball. They hold last year’s ping pong championship and are at present in good condition to win it again. The frater- nity has placed men on the All-University football and basketball teams. In varsity athletics the TEPs are proudly represented in tennis, football, basketball, baseball, swimming and cheerleading. The organization also holds the managership of the baseball team, the junior varsity tennis team, and the fencing team. This year Tau Epsilon Phi is going to lose six of its brothers by graduation. It is to them that we wish to dedicate this page. To you who arc about to leave the shelter of our fraternity, we say farewell. May you always profit by the experiences that you have acquired from the University of Miami and our fraternity. May you always live up to the Creed of Tau Epsilon Phi. To the last of our charter members and to our graduating Chancellor we say thank you for all that you have taught us, thank you for leaving us with a chapter of which we may all be proud. We who are left to carry on our task and to continue in the path of learning shall always strive to profit by your experiences and to uphold the name of Tau Epsilon Phi. Tau Epsilon Phi We sing to thee, Tau Epsilon Phi, At thy shrine so sacred and grand. We bring to thee, Tau Epsilon Phi, Our heart, our soul, and our hand. For brothers we in our fraternity Together we stand till we die And for ere free from shame To the world praise the name Of our men Tau Epsilon Phi. 134Top row: Harold Leviton, chancellor; Stanley Blackman, vice-chancellor; Stanley Segal, bursar; Alfred Xesbitt, scribe; Seymour Simon, Irving Lebowitz.

Beacher Thornton.Pi Chi ■ There has been a Pi Chi fraternity as long as there has been a University of Miami. On November 4, IQ26, immediately following the inception of the University, a group of campus leaders met at the San Sebastian Hotel. After much discussion and serious thought, Pi Chi fraternity was founded. These charter members were Roger Ashman, Ted Bleier. Albert Bell, William Horton. William Edwards, Hermon Lyons, George Lins, and J. R. Burkhalter. The first president of the student body, the first captain of the football team and the first captain of the basketball team were all Pi Chis. Since then. Pi Chi has continued in its high caliber of men and has had many campus leaders. Included in this years membership list: Mel Patton. Pi Chi '40. who so successfully presided over the junior class, was elected president of the senior class. Bunny Lovett, Pi Chi ’40. who has captained the Hurricane boxers during two successful seasons was elected president of the “M” Club, and has l een active in the position of senior senator in the Student Government. Pi Chi's newer members attempt to equal or even better the example set by the older members. It is therefore lilting that Keith Philips. Pi Chi '43. is the president of his class. Other Pi Chis who have served the University this year are: Harry Parker, manager of the basketball team; Billy Guerard and Jack Kendall, managers of the boxing team; Randy Dickens, manager of baseball; Bobby Suddeth, freshman football manager. Pi Chi numbers such memlwrs as John Douglas, John Xop| enberg, Carl Sapp, William Totterdale, Matt Borek. Jimmy Poore, Joe Dixon, Johnny Oespovich, Jolly Snowden, Bill Steiner, Thompson Kent, Dave Wike. and Terry Fox, who were among the driving forces of the Hurricane football team. Pi Chi men also participate in basketball, golf, swimming, tennis, and boxing. 138 It is, and always has been, the policy of Pi Chi to be as diverse in its activities as possible. The intramural aim of the fraternity is participation on the part of all the members with emphasis upon fair play and good sportsmanship. Socially, Pi Chi is most active. The ninth annual (jueen of Clubs ball given at the Miami Bill more was one of the most popular dances of the school year. Proceeds of the dance were given to the University library as a memorial to Donald Grant. Pi Chi also gives an annual Founders’ Day Ixtnquet, Pledge banquet and dance. Thanksgiving Day banquet and dance, Spring Formal. and an Easter dinner and dance. Official publications of the fraternity are the “Church Creeper," a humor magazine, and “The Pi Chi Advocate,” a fraternal newspaper. Dr. John Thom Holdsworth is Pi Chi’s faculty adviser and its list of honorary members include William Fenwick, Harry Frie-mark, Arnold Grote, Edward Hanford, Richard Schlaudecker, Sumner Wilson, Dr. F. E. Kitchens. William Stribling (deceased), Herbert Pape (deceased). Pi Chi was the first fraternity on the campus to occupy a house. Since 1927 it has kept a residence and has served meals for the benefit of its members. For the past nine years the chapter has been located at 1032 Coral Way.

His life leas one of toil ami strife He stayed in college all his life ! ■ Joe Bio was the son of a very wealthy man who thought that the best was none too good for his boy. When Joe graduated from prep school, his father chose for his son the college that he himself had attended. But, sadly enough, Joe didn't like this school because the football team lost every game. However, his father insisted that Joe attend for awhile, then if he still didn't like it, he could transfer. Joe packed his three trunks, swung his golf sticks over his shoulder, and, with a sticker on his suitcase, started out for a college career. True to his first opinion, the school did not appeal to him. In fact, he hated the place. He hated it so much that he persuaded his father to let him change. And his father, being a man of little will-power, said all right. The next college was a wonderful place until Joe found out that the chemistry professor had a grudge against him and flunked him on purpose. The dean tried to convince the father that, after all, flunking a mid-term and final was enought to make any professor dislike a student, but Mr. Bio could not l c convinced. Couldn’t the dean see that Joe’s health had been undermined by the terrific strain of studying chemistry? The only thing left to do was to move Joe to a southern college. Both agreed that the University of Miami was the only place to send him. On January 8, Joe added a sweat shirt and slack suit to his three trunks and hit the road. After a talk with the registrar. Joe found that while he had lx en going to school for a long time he was still a freshman. Transferring had played havoc with his credits and there was nothing to do but start over. The Miami season was in full swing and after all Joe had never gone to any races, Jai-Alai games, night clubs,—and that was—well, part of anyone's education. When he was called in for overcutting, he couldn't understand it. Shucks, he had only missed two or three classes a week and that was to go to the l each when he wasn't feeling well. The first semester he got a “G” in two classes and had missed three final exams, but then he could make those up later. When the next school year rolled around Mr. Bio thought that he should send Joe back down to Florida since he had enjoyed it so much. Back came Joe. Football season was under way, and it was a lot better to sit around at night and "buH” with fellows about plays n’ things than do American history. When the dean called him and said he’d better drop History 201. Joe was surprised, but that was O.K. 'cause he was carrying 14 credits anyhow. Mr. Bio wrote to his son saying that the dean had written that Joe's only excuse for missing morning classes was sleeping overtime. Mr. Bio wanted to know if this was true. So Joe wrote him and said, yes, that every morning he felt so tired he just couldn't get up. The truth revealed that Joe was going steady with a curb girl who never got off work till two p.m. Joe kept up at this rate through two and a half years in Miami, and then the year of graduation rolled around. Why certainly, he wrote his father, 1 11 graduate. I’ve been in college four years and a half, haven’t I ? So Joe went blithely along his way having a super time and thinking that college was quite the place to l e. Then the fateful day arrived: he received notification that he wasn't eligible for graduation. This was horrible, and yet worse was composing a suitable explanation for his father. This little ditty could go on indefinitely until Joe Bio was lieing pushed to class in a wheel-chair. However, I'll stop now and say that the last I heard from Joe, he was transferring to a California college. He hail convinced his father that a freshman was the only thing to be. 140Soarv C. A. A. ■ On a dear day early last winter a light seaplane moved slowly away from the Kmbry-Riddle seaplane base ramp on the County Causeway. Motorists, hurrying to the beach, and occupants of a nearby fishing boat, took little notice of the tiny plane. To them an airplane taking off was a commonplace occurrence. To University of Miami student Jim Pollard, at the controls of that plane, this was one of the biggest moments of his life for he was starting on his first solo flight. On the base ramp were instructor Bob Johnston, check pilot "Jiggs" Huffman, and other awed members of the aviation class. This was not only the first solo of the University class, but it was the first solo of a seaplane under the United States Civil Aeronautics Authority. The University of Miami was selected last fall as one of the 300 American colleges to receive complete aeronautical training through a government appropriation of §4.000,000. Aside from a negligible fee, paid by the student, the program was to lie financed entirely by the government with all supplies, instruction, and equipment to be handled through the appropriation. Many students registered for the training, but a stiff physical examination soon cut the group to the desired size of 20 students. It was then up to Dr. J. H. Clouse, director, and T. C. Brownell, instructor in navigation, to shape these green fledglings into a Instructor IliifTninn »how» Pupil Wayne which way lit up. portion of the group representing the pick of American youth. First on the training schedule was 72 hours of theoretical instruction. This training entailed study of such courses as history of aviation, practical air navigation, meteorology, parachutes, aircraft power plants, instruments, and the uses of radio. Upon the completion of this training the students were given a ground-school test by government inspectors. Then, they were divided into land and sea groups, according to their choice, and actual flight training was commenced. Although the seaplane students got off to a head start, the landplanc trainees lost little time in getting under way. Under the guidance of ‘ Shorty" Hall, Karl Vocl-ter, and Don Beardslee at the Municipal Airport they too soon had soloed, and were flying daily to obtain the specified 35 solo hours necessary before applying for a private pilot's license. By now the majority of both groups were ready for the inspector. At present, the course has been extended to include 795 colleges, and there are now approximately 10,000 students throughout the nation taking advantage of it. Only a small percentage of these have had the benefit of a year-round flying climate, or as favorable a location allowing land and sea training as has made possible the "Army" and “Navy” squadrons at the University of Miami. Proof of this is seen in the fact that there are only five colleges in the entire country offering seaplane instruction. Of the other four, two are in the State of Washington, and the others are located on the Atlantic coast. 141Kick the Shop ■ If, as you arc strolling through our cloistered halls one day, you chance to meet a silver-haired, stoop-shouldered gentleman who looks as though the cares of the world are upon him: if you greet him with a cheer)' “Hello" and he replies in a stream of good English words which make no sense whatsoever—it's Franklin Harris, esq., musician, exnewspaper man, and director of publicity. "Hello, hammerhead.” he's likely to say. "Shoot the blue goose at two-thirty: I'm off to the other side.” And the amazing part about it is this. We have come to the weighty conclusion, after years of study of Mr. Harris' dialect, that he actually does know what he's talking a! out. No one was more surprised than we. For example, the translation of the statement above reads as follows: "Hello. Mr. Smith. Tell them to send the blue bus at two-thirty. I'm going over to the other building.” With the aid of Hubert’s International Code Analyser, Journalistic Slang, and some of Mr. Harris' intimate and intelligent friends, we have managed to compile a brief vocabulary. This should be carefully and closely studied by anyone desiring speech with him. It omits perhaps the most picturesque parts of his picturesque speech. His famous similes—“Hotter than downtown hell,” “Busy as a chocolate milk factory," etc., etc.—and his appeals to our Maker for | eace and guidance have been left out to save space, and the morals of the student body. Still and all, it contains a good working framework, we think, for study. And if it helps one little soul in his struggling way. we shall be content.

Thus Miss Bertha Foster, dean of the Music School, describes the Sunday evening recitals, which have become an established part of the activities of the School of Music. If you should happen to be strolling near the bandroom any Sunday evening, you might be startled by the sound of music and voices breaking the quiet of the University’s Main Building. It would be one of the weekly recitals which are held throughout the school year, except during the symphony concert season. These musicals are informal gatherings of students, members of the faculty, and other people who are interested in music. They get together Sunday evenings to hear and discuss music, much as folks interested in the theatre form theatre groups tor their own enjoyment. One of the main purposes of these gatherings is to give the students an op| ortunity to perform publicly. Novice composers are given an opportunity to display their efforts before an audience and watch the reaction. Begun by Miss Foster, the recitals have attained a great measure of success. "I started them," says Miss Foster, “because I enjoy seeing young people relax to music and be free to express themselves. I wanted the students to meet each other more intimately. I try to create an informal and friendly atmosphere where | cople who arc interested in music can come and enjoy themselves.” The recitals were first given in the bandroom of the Main Building. At the beginning of this year a large reception was held for music students in the lounge of the Administration Building. Later a few recitals were offered there, but this change of locale proved unsuccessful, and they were moved back to the bandroom. “When we gave them in the Administration Building,” Miss Foster declared, “we often got a great number of people who were not genuinely interested in music. They came because the locale was attractive, and they considered it highbrow to attend a Sunday evening concert. But we’ve gone back to the old bandroom because we like the atmosphere. It’s like an old attic, and we feel more at home there. Besides, we are sure of getting an audience that is truly interested in music and in what we are doing. Otherwise, they would not take the trouble of seeking us out." The audience that regularly attends varies greatly in number. It consists of anywhere from ten to two hundred persons. A surprisingly large number of them are Miamians. One of the best Sunday concerts ever given was offeree! l)cforc an audience of ten, according to Miss Foster. The course of events at a Sunday evening recital is unpredictable. Just what will take place, no one knows. Sometimes there is a planned program; more often there isn't. Anything may turn up on these occasions. There may l c discussions led by faculty members, or again there may be a number of tryouts of original works by students. “There have been a few numbers written expressly for these concerts which have l een very creditable," says Miss Foster. Students often bring up certain pieces for discussion—a piece of jazz | erhaps or a new interpretation of an old classic. Faculty performances at these gatherings arc sometimes an unexpected “treat." The great variety of performances has attributed mostly to the success of the recitals. Among the concerts offered have l een string quartets, violin solos, vocal solos, piano solos, cello solo, flute solos, woodwind quartets, two-piano recitals, vocal ensembles and even swing and jazz. 144Surprise Party ■ Surprising how a Surprise Party can surprise a campus. Hedwig Ringbiomand David Eisasser came forth from a “bull session" in the Hurricane Office with a Surprise Party to support Gracie Allen in her campaign for the presidency. Not wishing to waste time in startling the world i.e., mice in the office, with their supper. David and Hedwig wired Gracie. Expensively the telegram ran along these lines: "Our club is willing, even anxious, to support your campaign for a four-year lease on White House. How do your relatives compare with those of present tenant ? Can you come here to address the suq»ris-ing number of Surprise Party members? “Please wire mis-statement for Thursday meeting. -What this country needs it good five cent scare— your Surprise Party can supply it. None of the members are eligible voters." In the rapid exchange of telegrams that followed, it was discovered that Gracie wondered if anybody could use George. Her fears came out prominently in her reply to club members. Gracie did say. however, that there was nothing she would like better than to appear personally in Miami to scare a surprising number of Surprise Party candidates. The only hitch in the matter seemed to concern her uncle. Gracie and George were living to Washington. D.C., and she had a premonition that if they let her uncle pilot the plane they'd pass over Miami cn route. Charter members, by this time, were being sucked into the club proposition with Ruby Beery, Helen Schaller, Alice B. Magruder, as a few of the original backers, who each paid forth the tremendous sum of ten cents for membership. One eager soul even parted with two cafeteria tickets to aid such a worthy cause. But even this rabid support could not finance more telegrams, so special delivery letters were substituted as a means of communication with headquarters. To these a reply came to the effect that Gracie was tickled silly, she thought that sounded funny, when she heard we had formed a Gracie-Allen-for-president-club. She firmly believes everyone must do his duty to keep the country safe for Femocracy. Gracie thinks a charter is something you hang on the wall over the pictures of other presidential candidates so she urgently requested that our club members form a charter, send her a copy, and maybe—just maybe —she would have an announcement to make. Meanwhile, as an aid to our school's curriculum, she suggested in a spirit of helpfulness, we form a class in ballot-box stuffing. She cast a warning with her suggestion, to the effect that we become skillful in this or we will make a mess of the job. National conventions are in order for every jhjI-itical party, and far be it from the Surprise Party to do otherwise. Gracie and her surprising number will convene in Omaha, Nebraska, May 15 through 18. David Eisasser set the watchword for the club in one statement. "On to Omaha I” Grade’s mascot. Laura, a kangaroo, sent her best picture to members, and her likeness greets them from the Party stationery, which is a brilliant red. white, and blue. To get their candidate off on the right foot, the Miami club sent Gracie a huge fish hook attached to a white thread, and as another necessary presidential occupation, a two cent stamp to begin her stamp collection. As a final encouragement and mis-statement for the election Gracie says, "It’s in the bag!" 145T ropical ,phooey! ■ It's a pretty sad state of affairs when someone who has been around Miami has to resort to talk of the weather, but I s'pose even Emily would sanction it, had she been here through January. February, March, April.—and well, you know the other eight. Itut there was really nothing else to talk about. Some of the people are so used to having the sun do all the work for them that they just sat and froze and talked about how they sho‘ nuff never saw nothin’ like it ’fore. Vacationists looked longingly at the ocean, crawled back on the train, and probably told all their friends back home never to come to Miami; that this stuff about sunshine was one horrible lie, and that they didn’t have a hot shower all the time they were in Miami. As for the farmers, well, something’s always happening to them, so they don’t count. But the students! Ah. that was a different proj o-sition. They crept into corners looking with fiendish glee at the green icicles dripping pitifully from the trees. Every night they piled their wardrobe on their head to keep warm, and snuggled smugly down praying for the cardboard walls to “stay as damp as you are" so that glorious voice would call in the morning and say “.Vo School.” Those were the good ole days. Xo snow to shovel, no furnace to fix, nothing to do but break up the porch furniture and build a fire to toast marshmallows and talk about what fun college used to be. Of course, I might add that some stooges wasted away the time by studying for exams, but, as in most cases, the majority ruled, so the studying issue can be flicked aside without further comment. Aside from the fact that nobody was seen downtown in Iwthing suits or shorts, the cold “snap” brought some very amazing results. That laundry became so embarrassed that they changed their “Stay Thru May” signs to something or other about blackouts. The Pi Chi’s, poor guys, found themselves without gloves, and resorted to shaking hands with the Phi Alphas—just to keep warm. Not to be outdone by the inevitable season prices, students working their way through school, put on earmuffs, wrapped blankets around themselves, and went in wild search of kindling which they sold at five cents a splinter. Somewhat of a slap in the face was Life’s eight page pictorial presentation of the cold facts about the weather. Their toe-nail depiction of the situation may be summed up thusly: “Cold winds rendered fishing impractical, porch-sitting unpleasant, swimming preposterous and even ‘slepperty-hunting’ difficult.” And not contented with that, the photographers practically put Miamians in the class with the frozen Finns. Now that spring has sprung, electric shops are laden with heaters, heaters, and more heaters. That's how life goes. Take an umbrella with you and it never rains. So it is with heaters. Four months ago | eople would have pawned their daughter to buy a heater, electric pad, or anything guaranteed to take off superfluous goose-pimples. Thousands of natives of the tropics clamored at the door of their favorite druggist, starving for heat, and were bitterly disappointed to find there were no heaters south of Chicago and no electrical parts south of Atlanta. Several days later when the sun at last reared its glowing head, you couldn't turn around but what someone was trying to stuff a heater down your throat. A most uncomfortable feeling, to be sure. I was sorry to see the cold wave wash back into the ocean. School started, for one thing. The streets were again thronged by half-naked tourists, pounding their chests and breathing the sunshine. A lull in conversation became noticeable; there was nothing to gripe about—except the heat. And most evident, the members of the Chamber of Commerce were looking much too smug again. And why should they? While the whole of Miami was shivering in corners and under carpets, they were warm. In fact, they were burned up!The saga of the Dane from the wilds of North Dakota who has done more than her share to sell the Hurricanes. ■ A tall blonde is usually associated with the front line of the chorus, rather than the front office of an athletic department, but then, tall, blonde Margie Christenson is definitely an unusual type. outdoor sports. Swimming and cycling are her choices. Her favorite sport from the viewpoint of a spectator is boxing. She gets a big kick out of the leather-pushers. Margie is the right hand "man” to Mr. Jim Heusse, graduate manager of Athletics of the University. and in addition to this, the Hurricanes' No. I Female Fan. One hundred and thirty-two thousand satisfied Hurricane fans can thank bespectacled Miss Christenson that they were able last season to sit in comfort and enjoy the ball games for it was Marge who handled ticket sales for the season. Try yourself to seat 132.000 people on the fifty yard line and you'll appreciate Margie’s task. No matter how great the rush and activity in the athletic department, the competent Margie never loses her patience or temper. Ever pleasant, all arc greeted with a big infectious grin. Everyone likes Margie and Margie likes everyone. A rabid sports fan, she spends her spare hours in Margie, who graduated in '35, has seen every home game the Hurricanes have played since then and can recall many exciting incidents. "My greatest single thrill occurred in 1936, when Coach Irl Tubbs had me sit on the players bench and take notes,” related Margie. "It was the Tampa game, played at the old Miami Field. A three inch rain fell during the contest, and the field was converted into a sea of mud. There may have been more exciting games, but this topped them all. I guess it was because I felt I was actually helping the Hurricanes." The entire time we talked to her. she was busily engaged in fixing the files and answering a barrage of questions from other office members, but the ever helpful, ever working Margie never lost that famous grin. 147■ Oh Kay, before I leave, call George Pittard and have him deliver a coke. Auntie just lives on them. When you’re finished, call Joe Title, too, and find out if he can give brother a clarinet lesson tomorrow. Someone's at the door. Look, it's Mannie Fein-bcrg collecting for the morning paper. Wasn't that a swell story Luther Evans wrote for the Herald sports section yesterday? Who’s that coming up the walk with a brief case under his arm ? It's AI Cohen, the census man, coming to climb our family tree. I'm off at last. First to the travel bureau. Auntie will insist on going to Havana again this year. She's crazy ateut those good coca colas they have there. Dave Kohler can help me compile the data for her. Charlie Franklin will take care of the insurance. I s'pose if I were any kind of niece I’d get a welcome gift. Maybe Jane Williams has some jungle jewelry that would suit Auntie’s personality. To the airport pronto, Joe, if I’m going to meet my future fortune. Yoo-hoo, there's Matt Borek. He’s working here at the airport now. We made it just in time, didn't we? Hello. Aunt Effie, I'm so glad to see you. We haven't time to talk now; I've planned some wonderful things for us. We ll go to the dog races. Most of the football players are working there. A water show? Oh yes, Jackie Ott does the loveliest dives. . . . We shouldn't have been in such a hurry. Here comes Zomps Zelesnick. one of the Coral Gables cops. Sure, he's a student, too. I wish we hadn’t come to this movie. Can't see a thing it's so dark. An usher will help us; in fact two of them — Paul Miller and Morton DuPree. Don’t you adore French actors Auntie? You want to learn to speak French? I know of a good French tutor. His name's Jacques Wilson. Now that the movie's over, I’m terribly hungry. Here's a restaurant. Norman Koul is the doorman, and John Ilomko and Rocco Flamigheiti are bus boys. Fifi must be fed too. Red Noppenbcrg is just the butcher to see; he'll give us some bones. This car must be running on air by now. Joe, stop at the filling station ahead. Mel Englander works there. You’re right, we've seen my classmates every place we've been. At the dog track we ll see a lot more. They park cars, lead out dogs, work at the mutual windows—and look, there’s Johnny Noppen-berg, Verdon Arries, John Douglas, Art James, and Don Salisbury. Don't they look handsome in those uniforms? Did you say where’s the ball? These are dog races, Aunt Effie, not a football game. See those good-looking boys modeling hats? 1 know them too: Campbell Gillespie. Johnny Oespovich, Duke Boyle and Paul Gustafson. Something tells me it isn’t the novelty of nightlife that that intrigues Auntie. She takes to it much too easily. She couldn’t believe that the bouncer in the last club was Chick O'Domski, and that University boys play in so many of the local bands. Why, in Hem Olsen’s orchestra there are Freddie .Ashe, Don Chadderdon, Vic Tantalo, and Paul Barbuto. I hear they’ve signed up for a summer tour, too. Well, if it isn’t Al Lane crooning away into the microphone. Aunt Effie, what are you screaming about! Someone stole your necklace? Quick, call Don Sapp, the F.B.I. man. Oh look, the excitement was too much for her. An ambulance! Paul Gustafson, you really get around. This evening I saw you modeling a hat. and now you're driving an ambulance. Now that you feel tetter, Aunt Effie, well check you at the hotel. Norman Conley works there, and Cromwell too. Poor boy, he works from nine at night to seven in the morning: then makes his eight-thirty class. No, he never sleeps. What, you wonder how these working students have time for an education? Fiddle-dee-dee, Effie, let’s go to ted and discuss that tomorrow. 148Children’s Hour ■ Broadcasting over a nation-wide circuit was added to the extra-curricular activities of the University this year. More than 200 students took part in a one-hour broadcast, which is quite a feat, even for radio. Kay kvser had the "College of Musical Knowledge" in Miami, and he teamed up with the University for an evening's entertainment. Kvser furnished the "Makes You Wanna Dance” music while co-eds and eds came forth with questions and answers. Entrance requirements tor participation were stiff. Using Franklin Harris, University publicity director, as a go-between, two questions per student were submitted to Kyser. After much deliberation and study, the “ole professor" announced the 200 best sets of questions; and the students who submitted them were given passes to attend the broadcast. The cavalcade for the theatre started about eight p.m., March 13. And what a procession! Two-by-two those lucky people formed a line that blocked the heavy traffic in the Grove. Finally ending up in the theatre for the exclusive University program, students were irritated to find that at least several dozen outsiders had crashed the gate. Then it happened. Onto the platform pranced Kay Kyser dressed in a blue silk robe with a yellow mortarboard perched on his head. After a few preliminaries, such as introducting the announcer, technician, band, and stars: Ginny Simms, the “careless" girl; Harry Babbitt. "Little Fox"; Sully Mason with the foggy voice: and Ish Kabible, general handy man; the rehearsal for the program starter]. A large blackboard with audience parts written on it was brought on the stage. After the routine had been explainer! carefully, a trial was called. Neither the boys nor the girls got things right the first time, so it was repeated. Most of the students are firmly convinced the gate crashers were the ones who tried to mess things up. When the body of listeners with minor parts such as yelling “Yeah team" and “No” had been drilled to perfection, attention was shifter! to the stars of the evening, the question answerers. Betty Goff and Robert Anthony were said to have submitter] the best sets of questions. Betty Goff chose Alma Jane Walker and Betty Roth by lot from a group of four girls who were runners-up: the other girls were Connie Caravasios and Virginia Veach. Robert Anthony had to choose two men from a group of four who had tied for the second and third spots from Bunny Lovett, Robert Thomas, Alfred Holt, and John Galbraith; Holt and Galbraith made up the team with Anthony. After a stirring battle Alma Jane Walker and John Galbraith talked their way into the final round. Kyser did a splendid job of heckling under the guise of helping. While the two first round winners were preparing for a final shot at a diploma worth $35, the Kyser outfit got in the groove in the "Grove” for a few numbers. After the “professor” had armed himself with the final exam, the two contestants glared at each other and got set for the grind. When the final questions had been asked and a messenger had bounced back with the judge’s decision, it was found that Alma Jane Walker had soft-talked herself into first place. With professorial dignity Kay Kyser presented Miss Walker with $35 for her effort and Galbraith with $20 for his valiant attempt. After grabbing a pack of free cigarettes from an usher, the students Hooded the Grove proclaiming the greatness of Kyser, his band, and his program. 149Radio Bleats ■ Between housewives' dramatic serials and the recorded dance music which make up radio's afternoon bill of fare were sandwiched this year three different series of University radio programs. “Classroom of the Air,” a pioneer in college broadcasts, celebrated its tenth anniversary. When this fifteen-minute “classroom" was in session three afternoons a week, it brought student work to the attention of hundreds of South Florida listeners, “Critics Circle” brought professors before the mike once a week to swap judgments on the latest books, plays, and moving pictures. “What’s New at the U?” was a midweek summary of University news, and usually featured an interview with some newsworthy student. Work was more ambitious this year than previously, with greater variety in programs, and a greater number of student and faculty participants. Of the ISO programs aired, including weekly concerts by the school of music, many were of more than passing interest. Last fall a special broadcast was arranged from the Orange Bowl, on which our first football opponents, Wake Forest, were interviewed. Hlaf-hour short wave programs to South America were broadcast over WDJM (WIOD’s short-wave outlet) featured two Hispanic-American Institute lecturers. Dr. Victor Belaunde and I)r. Emil LeFort. Music and English departments cooperated for a series. "Music in Shakespeare’s Time, which presented authentic Elizabethan songs and instrumental music as they were heard in Shakespeare’s plays. One Sunday afternoon in December, the symphony orchestra played Dr. Yolpc's favorite compositions in a 45 minute memorial concert. A new feature of the School of Music broadcasts were the bi-weekly illustrated piano lectures about various comj»osers by Mrs. Hannah Asher. Other music faculty broadcasters were Arturo de Filippi, tenor; Henry C.regor, composer; and Joseph Tar-pley, pianist. Alternating with faculty broadcasts were student programs featuring the glee clul»s, the string quartet, and soloists. Outstanding performers were Irving Laibson. William Gore. Phil Ribet, Isabelle Lloyd, Xitabelle Scarboro. Eddie Rram-bach. Dean Forthman, Jack Bower, Peter Buon-consiglio. Louis Luini, Harry Estersohn, and Bernard Sokolow. Smoother functioning of the radio department this year was due largely to the apjiointment by the administration of a Committee on Radio Education. Previously, radio has been the stejxrhild of some administrative officer. Now that responsibility is carried by Sydney Head, chairman; J. H. Clouse, Mrs. Natalie Lawrence, Fred Koch, Jr., Franklin Harris, and Miss Bertha Foster. Announcing, script writing, and acting is done by students. Especially active this year were A1 Collins. Bob Geist, Leo Stein, Hank Meyer, Bob Anthony, Dick Paige, Phyllis Salter. Marvin Englander, and Grace Berg. Recording equipment, the property of the radio department, has been much used by languages, music and literature classes, as well as by individual students. Students made personal records as gifts and letters back home. Music students tested their skill, and let a record play back to them their weak points. Sororities ami fraternities preserved their Songfest numbers for future rush parties. For class use. a collection of records was started. Some are professionally made recordings: Evan's Hamlet, and Frost, Lindsay, and others reading their own verse. Others were made during Winter Institute with the supplementary equipment from Robert Flink a student. Recording equipment will lie even more useful when another turning table and cutting head is acquired, and an acoustically good studio set up. Radio work in the University is stimulated by the fact that all stations must carry a certain number of non-commercial, educational radio programs. While the University of Miami wants to be among the leaders in broadcasting work, it is now seriously handicap|K'd by lack of equipment. It looks forward to the time when it will have not only a suitable studio, but courses in radio speaking, writing and production. 150Old Grads, New Style ■ Besides the dorm girls who are under her wing, “Mom” Koch takes care of about ninety adult students who live in the dorm. They call themselves “Mom's” big children. In past years the spring croquet tournament was the main event of the season to many of the visitors. Silver cups were awarded to the champions. This year spring moved in early and caught the second story folk unawares. They talked about the tournament, mused over past heroes of the green, and guessed who would l e this year's winners. They discussed it thoroughly but never got around to organizing the elimination contests. Nevertheless, every afternoon after the sun left the patio, they were out there knocking balls around. All was not smooth going on the court; there were humps and bumps (they call them hazards and blame them on the waterworks) that had to be surmounted. Some of the players were dead serious about perfecting their form and increasing their skill. They delighted in executing amazingly tricky shots. On such occasions the arm chair gallery shouted encouragement and advice. Popular opinion conceded Mr. David Walsh the championship of the men’s croquet team. Mrs. Mary R. Toby swung a mean mallet for the women. Anyone who licked these two stars got very much excited. No silver cups were awarded this year, but here was plenty of fun without the strain of earnest competition. Most of the second story people attended a good number of the 185 (first semester statistics only) teas, parties, and social meetings held at the dorm this year. One of the attractions was the spiced tea; they all expressed a fondness for it. They also drank unspiked punch and talked about the wonderful stuff they had last year. In keeping with collegiate surroundings, a few of the people enrolled in University courses. They studied music appreciation, English literature, dramatics, and Spanish. The entire group attended the Institutes religiously. The symphony concerts never had more enthusiastic supporters. Mr. Walsh, in addition to his flare for croquet, is a pianist. To give expression to his other musical inclinations, he took lessons on the clarinet. He was getting along fine being an apt pupil, but he started receiving the usual complaints. His interest waned when his associates and neighbors began objecting to his practice sessions. The affair that stands out is the Christmas party “Mom” gave for her brood. Along with the girls who stayed in the dorm for vacation, they helped decorate the tree. Santa Claus was there to distribute the presents. The men who were first year visitors each received a frosh cap. Mr. Sam Baldwin was given a paddle and the position of chairman of the second floor Vigilance Committee. The men wore their green dinks, and Mr. Baldwin kept the second floor tenants in line. Without presenting justifications for his action, the head vigilante paddled the first year men just any time he took a notion to do it. Racing forms stood up under the wear and tear in the hands of this group. Everybody went to the races some of the time, but a few devotees journeyed out to the track each racing day. They’d come home all pepped up and swap stories over dinner alxiut a certain horse they wanted to bet on but didn’t. Needless to say. the horse always paid. For weeks a horse name of Foxy Maud monopolized the conversation. The big children were always doing some nice little thing for the little children of the third floor. They entertained the girls at Christmas. Mrs. Brooks gave the girls a radio for the penthouse. Numerous things such as these were done so unpretentiously they have gone unnoticed.■ If the dream of Jose le Seabra, slender Portuguese and Spanish instructor, materializes, not many years will slip into the annals of the past before jai alai will take a place alongside of football, baseball, basketball, and other sports at the University of Miami. A newcomer to the University, Mr. de Seabra has already injected a surprising amount of interest into faculty members and students concerning the Spanish game. In fact, seldom a day passes but what some incident or tale of jai alai slips into Mr. de Seabra's lectures. At least one faculty member and two students have already tried their hand at jai alai and found it much to their liking. William Lebedeff, of the School of Music, Art Tracy, Hurricane basketball player, and Jerry Weinkle, debating team member, are trail blazers of the game on the campus. Often during the | ast season of professional competition at the Biscayne Fronton, the four enthusiasts visited the court and practiced. Even Mr. de Seabra admits that there is no particular hurry about forming a team at the University, for it would be impossible to find competition. Miami is the only place in the United States where jai alai is played today. However, it was introduced last year in New York City and was enthusiastically received. Since New York has such a cosmopolitan population, fame of the game has spread surprisingly, and Mr. de Seabra is convinced it has a promising future in this country. Even if there were no teams to meet for the next few years, it would be something to have the first and only jai alai college squad in the nation. Learning how to play has not proved expensive to the local youths. Cost of a cesta runs around eight to ten dollars, and this is all the equipment necessary to purchase. Balls are furnished at the fronton for a one dollar rental fee which is returned when the ball is given back. Use of the court has been free, and the students were invited to play as often as they like. According to Mr. de Seabra, professional players who live in Miami during the off season are interested in starting a school for amateurs at the Biscayne Fronton. This, they believe, would greatly stimulate interest in the game. The University students have been offered an economical proposition by which they will be given lockers, have experts take care of balls for them, and have their cestas repaired for a small monthly sum. Despite his natural love of the game. Mr. de Seabra admits he is far from an expert. One day, he explains, he can take the most difficult rebounds and caroms off the front and side walls; the next he can do nothing right. In fact, after a few minutes conversation with Mr. de Seabra. watching his eyes and features brighten as he talks of jai alai. it is not difficult to believe that if he had possessed the necessary skill he would be one of the professionals and not a teacher. Tracy and Mr. de Seabra have practiced together often this year and the tutor is convinced that Art has a natural ability, which might be developed greatly through proper coaching and training. The only American playing professional jai alai today is Federico, who was born in Philadelphia. He was one of the outstanding players of the past local season. 152ORGANIZATIONSFop H onors ■ Iron Arrow, the men’s honorary organization, has the two-fold puqjose of combining outstanding scholarship with outstanding activity on the campus. It was started in 1927 by Dr. Ashe, who selected the eight most outstanding men in their respective fields to form the charter group. Chief Tony Tommy of the Seminole Indians added greatly to the organization by giving it a colorful ceremony, symbolical in itself of the unique position Iron Arrow maintains among all the other campus organizations. Each year the men who have attained prominence in the various fields of campus life, and have at the same time maintained high scholastic averages, are honored by induction into Iron Arrow. Their reward is well earned, for it is they who used their talents to build a greater University; they have been and are its leaders. Members of the faculty are similarly honored for their unusual contributions to University life. Public tapping is conducted at a general student assembly in the spring semester of each year. The impressive ceremony proceeds to the beat of Indian tom-toms, and is made extremely picturesque by the Seminole costumes worn by the active and Bark row: Porllrlo Prrrz, Charles l.urhl.

Phillips, Seymour Simon, Grant G. Slater, Lloyd Whyte, and from the faculty, Dean John Thom Holdsworth. ■ Nu Kappa Tau, the highest honorary organization for women at the University of Miami, was founded on May 7, 1937. The charter group consisted of nine girls who were selected by the deans of the various colleges and the chairmen of certain faculty committees. Membership in the society is limited to second semester juniors and seniors who have had at least two years’ residence at the university. No more than nine new girls are admitted each year. The girls arc admitted upon the basis of scholarship, citizenship, leadership in campus activities, cooperation, character, and service to the University. The unanimous vote of the active members and the approval of the faculty organizations committee is necessary for selection. The purpose of the organization is to honor those girls who are most outstanding on campus for fostering school pride in intellectual pursuits, for advanc- 154ing tin ideals of the University of Miami, and for promoting fellowship. Public selection of the new girls is made at a general assembly of the student body in the second semester of each year. The active and alumnae members of N'u Kappa Tau wear academic caps and gowns and indicate the new girls by placing orange scarfs about their necks. Members selected this year are: Mary Creel, ’40: Adele Rickel. '40; Martha Dorn, '40; Mary Reed. '40: Virginia Allen, '41; Betty Lou Baker, ’41; Laura Greene, '41; Catherine Heftnger, '41; and Berthe N'eham, 41. ■ Besides clubs, sororities, fraternities, athletic and social events there is the matter of books involved in college life. It takes a pupil a few months, perhaps years, to realize that books serve a purpose and that college has an ulterior reason for being. Pleasure of the moment is not reason enough for going to college; there should be some cultural desire or practical reason for attendance.

The society, which was established several years ago, is open to those members of the freshman class who distinguish themselves by achieving an outstanding scholastic record. Learning docs not come easily to all, but everyone has the opportunity to work for knowledge. These students who are honored for their scholastic standing are not to be scorned as “grinds.” Certainly their achievement represents hard work, but they are to be commended for their earnest effort and their foresight. To be eligible for membership, a freshman must earn a grade of “A” in at least fifty percent of credits earned, no grade below “B,” and must carry a minimum of twelve hours each term in residence at the University. Members of the Freshman Honor Society arc: Class of 1940: Bernice Milliman, Algerine Price. J. J. Glickman, Sara Butler. Mary Creel, Sylvia Raichick. and Hilda Ringblom. Class of 1941: Catherine Hefinger, Seymour Simon. Ronald Kerfoot. Phylis Salter, Clarice Schnatter-beck, William Feldman, and Laura Green. Class of 1942: Claud Corrigan, Evalyn Daniel, Margaret Wyant, John Quimby, Earl Smith. Jo Thomas, and Hedwig Ringblom. 155Srutnl: Martha Dorn, Juiir Burr, Adrlr llickrl, Iturulliy . »he.

Who’s Who ■ Who’s Who in American Colleges anil Universities, an annual publication giving the biographies and college achievements of outstanding college students of the country, this year listed fifteen members of the University of Miami student body on its rolls. Hob Hillstead. Martha Dorn, Walter Kichefski, Hob Olsen. June Burr, Chuck Guimcnto, Jack Mad-igan, Mel Patton, Adele Kickel. Dorothy Ashe. Selma Phillips. Mary Reed. I.ucille Lefkowitz, Hill Hardie, and Bunny Lovett are the honor students. Selected by a committee composed of faculty members. the representatives were judged on the basis of character, leadership in extra-curricular activities, scholarship, and potentialities of future usefulness to business and society. Hob Hillstead. treasurer of the student l ody, held the presidential title of Alpha Phi Omega, service fraternity in the University, during the current year. He is a member of Kappa Sigma social fraternity and of Iron Arrow, men's honorary organization. A senior, Hob was an assistant in the accounting department. Martha Dorn, 1939-40 Varsity Girl, was guard of Zeta Tau Alpha social sorority. Walter Kichefski. co-captain of the 1939-40 var- sity football squad, is a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity and of the “M” Club, honorary athletic organization. Grand Master of Kappa Sigma during the first semester was Hob Olsen. Bob also directed boys’ intramurals and was senior Y.C. adviser. June Burr was vice-president of Alpha Theta sorority. Other co-captain of the football team was Chuck Guimcnto, also a member of the “M" Club and of Lambda Chi Alpha social fraternity. Jack Madigan. 1939-40 president of Phi Alpha social fraternity, is included on the membership lists of Theta Alpha Phi, honorary dramatics fraternity, and Rho Beta Omicron, honorary debating fraternity. He was a senior senate member and manager of the Debate Council. Mel Patton was president of the senior class and is a member of Pi Chi social fraternity. The president of Theta Alpha Phi, Adele Rickel. was a member of the Debate Council and is a senior in Kappa Kappa Gamma, social sorority. Dorothy Ashe, secretary of the student body, was alternate president of Florida Student Government Association and is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Alpha Epsilon Phi's Selma Phillips is a member of Xu Kappa Tau, women's honorary fraternity. Mary Reed, assistant in sociolog)’, is a member of Beta Phi Alpha social sorority. Y.W.C.A. and the International Relations Club also listed her as a part of their groups. President Lucille Lefkowitz, of the Panhellenic Council, was dean of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority, and a staff member on the two student publications, the Hurricane and the Ibis. Bill Hardie captained the Hurricane tennis team and is a member of the “M'' Club. President of the M” Club and captain of the boxers was Bunny Lovett, senior senator. Bunny is also a member of Pi Chi fraternity and of Iron Arrow. 156Alpha Ph i O m ega ■ Alpha Phi Omega, National Service Fraternity, was founded at Lafayette College. Easton, Pa. in 1925. In 1935, a group of University of Miami students. interested in participating in a national program of service and friendship, established Alpha Pi Chapter on this campus. Soon after the chapter was formed graduation depleted its membership and in the fall of 1935 only six members were left. The fraternity then became inactive but was reorganized through the efforts of Larry Lewis in the spring of 1938. With a completely new membership, the fraternity elected Ray Fordham as its president and initiated a constructive program of service projects. The first project of the fraternity after its reorganization was to sponsor a University of Miami open house program for all graduating high school boys of South Florida. The program met with such success that it is now an annual event and has ! een effective in attracting many new students to the University. APO next undertook the publication of the "M” book, the handbook for freshmen and transfer students. This project kept the members busy during the summer and the ! ook made its appearance at registration in the fall of 1938. It was said then to be the best yet put out. Still more improvements were made in the 1939 edition. The 1940 “M" book, on which work has already l cgun, will be better than ever. Alpha Phi Omega strives constantly to develop through its program the ideals of friendship, leadership. and service. It welcomes all those who wish to adhere to these principles and to work in helping to build a greater University of Miami. Its projects are concrete examples of the application of its ideals. APO has executed such projects as organizing "get out and vote" campaigns, erecting "no parking" signs, caring for the bulletin boards, painting class You cun get wrvlcr. with or without «intlr», from thev members of Alpha l"hl Omega.

May Mayer, and Hurry O'Dell. rooms anti offices, and furnishing identification badges to freshmen. Last fall APO sponsored a unique "Plain Jane" contest: a penny-vote contest, the proceeds of which went to buy a new school banner to replace the ragged one then living above the rotunda. Lynn Bullard won the contest and received a free trip to the Miami-South Carolina football game and. in addition, several gifts from a Miami department store. Alpha Phi Omega is proud of its members who are active in all university activities. They may lx seen as leaders in student government, in scholarship. in the university publications, in debating, in athletics, and in social affairs. Now. two years after its reorganization, Alpha Phi Omega is steadily forging ahead as one of the most constructive organizations on the campus. Its program this year has done much toward building a foundation for future growth and a program of greater service to the University of Miami. 157Lead and Ink ■ Students who show an active interest in Journalism and perform outstanding creditable work on one or both of the University student publications are eligible for membership in Lead and Ink. Election to this honorary fraternity may l e based not only on writing, but also on photography, advertising, editing, or staff administration. Although Lead and Ink is an honorary organization. it attempts to l e of service to the school. Its latest service project is an annual Lead and Ink Journalism Scholarship, which will be presenter! for the first time next year. Seniors in all Florida high schools may compete for the $100 award by submitting news, editorial, and special articles on assigned subjects. The entries will Ik grader! by prominent Florida newspaper men. and announcement of the recipient will be made before the close of the spring semester of 1940-41. The first winner will then enter the University in September, 1941. The Scholarship contest will lie publicized throughout Florida. Another service project of Lead and Ink is binding copies of The Hurricane. No other complete, printed record of University activities is available, so that permanent preservation of the student weekly becomes of high importance. Among llir member of honorary Journalistic society for this year arc John llo|ikli». Molllr Connor, l-c ! Ihirti, llonk Mrycr. Martha Dorn, anil I'Juirlc Franklin. Still another project of Lead and Ink is its attempt to stimulate school-wide activity in the Hurricane and the Ibis. I .cad and Ink believes that too few students have been interested enough in the student newspaper and yearbook to do the intensive work required to produce these publications. Also among the plans for stimulation of interest in Journalism now lwing considered is establishment of a series of public lectures similar to the Winter Institute of Literature, the Hispanic-Amcrican Institute, and the Social Welfare Institute. Well-known journalists who spend their vacations in Florida would lx among the speakers. Lead and Ink members for 1939-40 are Mollie Connor. Lewis Dorn, Martha Dorn, David Elsasser, Charles Franklin. John Hopkins, Ralph Nelson, and Cliff Hendricks. Faculty members are Simon Hoch-berger. instructor in Journalism, Lewis Leary, assistant professor of English, and Leonard Muller, assistant professor of Romance languages. Newly-elected members are Virginia Allen, Ira Bullock, Claud Corrigan, Nancy Dobbins, Jeanne Girton, Selma Phillips, Helene Putnam, Hcdwig Ringblom, Betty Mae Serpas, and Seymour Simon. Lead and Ink was founded in 1932. It holds monthly meetings at which round table discussions of journalistic problems are participated in by the members. 158Theta Alpha Phi ■ The Florida Beta Crapter of Theta Alpha Phi, National Honorary Dramatic Fraternity, was installed at the University of Miami on April 25. 1936, supplanting the former University Players club. Membership to this body is highly selective, open only to students of at least sophomore rank, who are outstanding actors or actresses, or who have contributed something to the advancement of the dramatics department. It is the highest honor a student player can receive. The purposes of this fraternity are to increase interest, stimulate activity along creative lines, and foster artistic achievement in all of the allied arts and crafts of the theater: in other words, to advance the art of dramatics in the colleges and universities of this country. There arc some sixty-five chapters in almost ever)' state of the Union. In the state of Florida there are three chapters, one at Stetson. Rollins, and Miami. The local branch of the fraternity presents two annual productions to the student body. One. a full length play in which members and alumni of Theta Alpha Phi take part. This year the show was Claire Boothe’s smash hit The Women, presented March S and 7. The other show, the Theta Alpha Phi Follies, is an old-time vaudeville show of approximately twenty acts, in which any organization or individual on the campus may participate. The outstanding feature of this show is usually the Hurri- cane chorus, a group of rather hefty football players doing a ballet dance. The Follies is now in rehearsal and will be given April 19. The present membership includes the following students and faculty members: Adele Rickel. president; Mabclle Cohen, vice-president; Phyllis Salter, secretary; Edward Baumgarten. treasurer: Sylvia Locke, historian; Mrs. Opal Euard Motter, advisor: Maxwell Marvin. Dan Satin, Jack Madi-gan, Joyce Christiansen. Becky Parham, Bill Pro-basco, George Dawkins, Elton Rosenblatt. Stuart Cohen, Jean Small, Bea Collins, Denise Penchina, and C. H. Motter. faculty technician. Mr. Walter Scott Mason and Mrs. Natalie Grimes Lawrence and W. H. A. Maloney are honorary' members along with Paul Green, famous playwright and lecturer at the University of North Carolina. Mr. Green was initiated two years ago while lecturing at the Winter Institute of Literature. The publication of the fraternity is the Cue. The pin, or badge, is in the shape of the conventional theater laughing mask, with the Greek letters Theta Alpha Phi forming the eyes and nose. The National convention is held each year, and it is hoped that within the next few years it may be held here in Miami. The future of the dramatics department is largely dependent upon the activities of this theater fraternity. It is the hope and aim of Theta Alpha Phi that there may some day be a complete School of Dramatics at the University of Miami. 159B. S. U. ■ The Baptist Student Union is unique in its organization in that every Baptist student who attends Sunday School or Training Union is automatically a member of the organization. It is also unique in requiring only Council members to attend the regular weekly meetings. Broad programs during the year included devo tionals and prayer meetings, study courses, talks by outstanding religious speakers, and socials. The Council and all Baptist students in the University were eligible to attend. This year begins with a drive for interesting new Baptist students. Those students interested signed up at the B.S.U. table during registration ior the first semester. A get-together party was given for the new members and “Join the Church " week followed. For a period of several weeks B.S.U. had a Baptist preacher to speak each Thursday afternoon on some student problem. This was brought to a climax with a “chalk talk” by the world famous speaker on youth problems. Mrs. J. O. Williams. Three study courses were offered this year. Miss Billie Ruth Curran, student secretary for B.S.U. at Florida State College for Women, was the guest of Miami B.S.U. for one week. During this week she spoke on student problems in meetings which were interdenominational; held special conferences for B.S.U. Council members and other campus re- ligious leaders; and also conducted a study course in B.S.U. methods for Council members. A study on “Winning Others to Christ" was conducted by the devotional chairman assisted by Rev. Jack Burkholder. The third study course, which was in vocations, was conducted by J. Roy Robinson, state head of the Baptist Student Union. Several events highlighted the devotional services of the year. A Thanksgiving Sunrise service at Sunrise Point was held. Student night programs were given in which members of the Miami B.S.U. took over church services at five of the larger Baptist churches in greater Miami. Interdenominational noon day prayer services were instituted, and a musical program for the West Flagler Baptist Church was conducted twice a month. The slogan of the group for the year has been: “Above all Christ." B.S.U. sends delegates to three conventions: State-Wide Convention, Spring Retreat at Camp Olena, and Southwide Convention at Ridgecrest, North Carolina. At the State Convention this year Lloyd Whyte was elected State vice-president; Alfred Long also attended. Enis Johnson. Clementine Smith. Leland Rees, and Lloyd Whyte were chosen to represent Miami at Spring Retreat. The social program for the year included a welcoming party, a Christmas Ixmquet, a banquet following installation of officers, and two beach parties, one which was in honor of the seniors. This year the Union also entertained for B.S.U. members from the University of Florida who were here for the Miami-Florida football game. 160Campus Citizens ■ It's one year old. the baby organization at the University -one year old and one year strong! Its not made of the stuff of manhood yet, for it has just learned how to take its first steps, and these tottering. Hut they are forward steps, and determined ones, motivated by the will of the students to help build the University of Miami into one of the finest universities in the country. Before school closed last year, the nuclei of students who had met to organize Campus Citizens set uj some plans for an orientation program which was to Ik carried out in September. Accordingly, letters of welcome were sent to each prospective University entrant. A welcoming committee composed of mem-! ers of CC met every train, bus. boat, and plane during that week in September when the students were arriving, and took them to their residences. The first few days of registration, ordinarily a nightmare for new and old students alike. Campus Citizens did much to facilitate matters. They were stationed at different |M sts in the registration room —always ready to help with some word of advice or a friendly smile. They tried to make the new students feel that their new home at the University was going to be a pleasant and friendly one. After the first weeks of hectic orientation, during which time C.C. worked closely with the V.C. and the Administration, a routine for the organization was established. A number of permanent committees were set up, and CC, with a membership of nearly one hundred, began to be truly representative of the student body. During this year they have done lots of things yet to ! e evaluated in perspective. In keeping with their aim to establish the University as the friendliest university in the South, a permanent greeting committee met every incoming football team with gifts of grapefruit, oranges, ami coconuts, and arranged for their entertainment during the days they were guests here. In January, Campus Citizens sponsored one of the most successful dances of the year, and proved that they had a working social program, too. Then there were the dreams, hopes and ambitions, perhaps beyond the scoj e of the infant organization. but not yet lost from sight. They thought to listen to the pleas and complaints of fellow students, and of trying to help them; they thought of working for better lighting facilities, a larger, more adequate library, of trying to keep the campus clean of rubbish, of spreading the culture of the University throughout the community by sending our students to local schools to lecture, sing, or play instruments — to demonstrate concretely what the University can offer young people. Yes, Campus Citizens has its dreams. And these things are not so far away. Next semester Campus Citizens will l»egin its second year. Perhaps then, with a representative student body backing this organization built primarily for the expression of their collective ideas—Campus Citizens will come to the realization of more of its dreams and ambitions, and will continue to help make the University of Miami one of the liest schools in the country. 161Chemists ■ The University Chemical Society was organized on November 22, 1934 by Walter O. Walker, at that time professor of Chemistry at the University, and a group of Chemistry students, interested in studying subjects of a chemical nature which are not included in the usual course of a chemistry major. Membership in the society is strictly honorary. Members arc chosen from majors in Chemistry who have completed eighteen credits in Chemistry, and who have maintained a general average of not less than “C” with a “B” average in Chemistry. However. unless the student shows a particular interest in Chemistry and modern developments in science outside the lecture room, he is not considered eligible to membership in the group. Membership is limited to twelve active members and elections are held only to fill vacancies in the group. The by-laws of the society require that each student member present to the group at least one lecture a year upon any subject of his choice pertaining to chemistry. In this way the student benefits from the research connected with preparation for presentation and from the opportunity to speak to a group of fellow scientists about a technical subject. A wide variety of subjects have been used for lectures some of which are “Enzymes,” “Cellulose." “Glass Manufacture,” “Tanning of Leather,” “His- tory of Chemistry," “Textiles," “Drugs," and “Explosives.” Student talks arc supplemented by lectures of professors and other scientific speakers. At one time the society was most fortunate in having as guest speaker I)r. Baekeland, discoverer of bake litc. Visitors are always invited to attend lectures. Since this organization is strictly honorary, compulsory dues have not been adopted; however, most members have contributed in a small way toward establishing a yearly fund used to purchase equipment and books for the chemical department of the school, which can not be secured on the limited budget of the department. The members feel that by doing this they are contributing in a small way to the advancement of science. Recently the yearly fund has been used to pay for subscriptions to the Chemical Review. Members of the society may be recognized by the gold key which has been accepted by the group as its symbol. The key bears designs of chemical apparatus. Honorary members who may also wear the key are Mrs. E. V. Hjort. Mr. Richard Harrison, and Mr. Harry Miller. Since Dr. Walker’s resignation from the University faculty. Dr. E. V. Hjort and Mr. Evan T. Lindstrom have supported the group and acted as sponsors of the society. Officers of the group for 1939-40 are: Frank Berg, president; David Abrams, vice-president; James Anderson, secretary-treasurer; Daniel Mayer, historian. 1 162Co-ed Council Sponsor Mary B.

Kathryn Davis PURPOSE AND CREED We, the members of the Co-ed Council, stand ior the wholehearted cooperation with the University ideals for student life, for the maintenance of fine social standards, and serving to the best of our ability the University and community. We shall stand for an active, sympathetic interest in the life of our classmates, and for the loyal support of the ideals of our Alma Mater. It shall be our aim to make college life happier and more profitable. We shall endeavor to promote the spirit of mutual happiness, service, and personal responsibility among the students and promote more unity among the women students and promote such functions as shall enable the women students to meet together in fellowship. ACTIVITIES This was the first year that such an organization h;ts been active on the campus, and it has been difficult to do anything spectacular enough to make the students realize the value of such an organization. The Council has devoted the past year almost entirely to service. The officers have acted as hostesses and have helped to arrange for any University function in answer to any S.O.S. call. At the beginning of the semester the Council sponsored a very successful friendship tea for the Murir Norcn- ». werrtury; Ailrlr Kickrl. prrsldcnt: uiul Vlitflttlii Allrn, vlcr-pmlilriit, stroll nrmxs llir patio lo «mr ••f Ihr • o- sl Council' mr.-liiiK . which nrc Uxunlly hrlil In • hr thralrr.

The Council held meetings twice a month, once featuring Miss Nancy Adams, who lectured on "The Theatre and Women"; and at another occasion were honored by the presence of Mrs. Chase Going Woodhouse, prominent among women Vocational Guidance directors. The Council has made plans and has outlined a booklet of Do’s and Don’ts for the benefit of all women students, which will be in circulation in the fall. The Council has a Courtesy Committee whose duty is to lend a sympathetic hand in case of illness or death in a family of some University woman. This is only the beginning. The road has l een paved for much progress in the future. Ever)' girl automatically l ecomes a member when she enrolls in the school, and it is her duty and opportunity to give service to the University bv cooprating with the Council officers, and helping herself by abiding by the rules set up for the purpose of helping her obtain happiness and success in her college life. 163English Honors ■ Hack in the very early days of our university a small group of students decided they wanted to meet occasionally and informally for discussions of literature. Before very long the group had organized itself along informal lines and had taken the name of English Honors Society. In the years that followed English Honors Society prospered and met reverses as interest in literature rose and fell. But there must always have been a latent interest in literature among the students, even if at times that interest seemed almost to have died out. because in spite of periodic setbacks the Society never died in spirit. As the University grew there was a growing place in it for such a society as English Honors. Thus English Honors progressed and overcame many obstacles. Today it is more alive and energetic than ever before. The current year has indeed been a successful one for English Honors, for this year the Society for the first time adopted a formal constitution. Although English Honors was founded in 1926, the first year the university was open, making it one of our oldest campus organizations, its past history has been anything but smooth and calm. Twice the Society dropped out of existence, only to be revived by a few persistent souls a year or two later. A great deal of credit is due to the late, beloved Dr. Orton Lowe for his help and encouragement in keeping bright the flame of interest in the Society. In his hands English Honors was nursed through its adolescence and brought to its present adulthood. The new constitution states the purpose of the organization. It is. ‘To encourage, foster, and develop an active interest in literature among students of the University of Miami.” That is certainly a worthy purpose for a society in an institution devoted to the promotion of culture and knowledge. This year, under the provisions of the new constitution. the Society elected George W. Rosner president, Jo Carol Weinstein vice president, and Jimmy Ann Thomas sec re tar)’. The membership of the Society totals twenty-eight. Members are elected by an executive committee, must be juniors or seniors. and must maintain an average of at least “B" in literature courses. Mr. Lewis Lear)’ and Dr. Clarke Olney are faculty advisers and help in many ways by virtue of their experience and knowledge of literature to guide the society along progressive paths. The society does not maintain itself aloof from active participation in university life outside the boundaries of its own membership and meetings. In addition to its 0| en meetings it finances and maintains in the library of the university a small rental library where all students may rent at nominal fees contemporary books of merit selected by the Society and placed upon the library shelves. 164I. R. C. ■ With last year's threats of war now a sad reality, with the rumble of machine guns almost perceptible, with the blessings of liberty l eing brought ever-more to our minds, we of the youth of today have been abruptly startled out of our day dreams and rev erics. The business of living selfishly, individually, has been brushed aside like some childhood toy, and we are grasping the bitter truth of manhood and womanhood with strong, unswerving faith; we are bracing our morale and optimism -griting our teeth and hitting things hard. For we know that complacent youth is duped youth, parasitical and unhealthy, and these must have no part in our scheme of life. Inquisitive, eager to learn of the world heritage that is ours, we have looked about us ior enlightenment and an intelligent approach to the problems with which we are faced; we have looked about for an exchange of opinion, for we feel that through an unbiased consideration of world affairs we will discover new perspectives. In the International Relations Club we have found such a common stamping-ground. At semi-monthly open meetings we have discussed the entire scope of world affairs. We have heard the opinions of people older and wiser than ourselves, and we, not so old and not so wise, have expressed ourselves equally freely. Often we have disagreed, but as the trend of thought of the twenty million young people of today is in one direction, so did the general concensus of opinion unify itself at IRC meetings. We heard our professors hold forum discussions on the European war, and, then, as now. the youth of America, of which we in the International Relations Club are a cross-section, does not want to go to war! Rather, we want the chance to find jobs and security; the chance to receive an education; the freedom of open assemblage such as the IRC fosters, and on which it is built; the right to pursue the happiness our Constitution guarantees us. From the lips of prominent civic leaders we heard of the vital role which youth is expected to play in government. We recognized the democratic rights which are now being threatened by those who would put a gun instead of a diploma and a pay envelope into our hands. And through the medium of an intelligent interchange of opinion, the International Relations Club examined these problems. As the individual is variable, so is his approach to a problem. On examination of the present world conflagration, some of us looked to the underlying causes as a probable basis for remedy. Others believe that only by a more tolerant understanding of one nation for another can we hope to achieve world | eace. Combining these and various other approaches, we turned to South America, not only to strengthen the bond of friendship between the two great American continents, but to examine our social, economic, and cultural differences as a lead towards greater harmony. Too, we presented a series of three foreign films in order to broaden the scope of our understanding. 165Language Clubs (IRC VIA) II ISP a.wo ■ Helen Syman founded the Circulo Hispano, often known under its sub-title as the Spanish Club, in September of 1939. By bringing together the Latin and North American students in its fortnightly meetings, this organization attempts to promote better understanding between the two groups resulting in a practical application of the idealistic doctrines of Pan-Americanism. Its meetings conducted in Spanish are quite formal. Topics of Hispanic interest are discussed, and everyone from the eager freshman to the senior Spanish major takes part. In addition to these meetings, there have been this year a banquet, beach party, and a free Spanish motion pictures. The Spanish club is still in its infancy, but it has The SikiiiWIi dull cmwils itsilf onto n «tunr bench while llw French club paan urouml a couch.

'Hits kind of society makes other languages seem more rent. ambitious plans for the next scholastic year. Due to the present war there will probably be an increase in the enrollment of Latin-American students, and the need as well as the advantage of a social and cultural organization of this type will lie even more widely felt. Next to being in a foreign country, students rate membership in clubs where the foreign language is required exclusively as the surest way to develop conversational powers. The professors say that language clubs can explain the use of the subjunctive better than any textbook and less painfully. CERCLE P RAW A IS ■ Language students learn the essentials of grammar and conversation in their class work. The cultural heritage of the people is stressed in civilization and literature courses, yet students of this university. following the precedent of students in other institutions, have formed language organizations for the further development of their linguistic talents. The Cercle Framjais established at the beginning of this school year, through the participation and interest of its members, has risen to a place of high importance in supplementing the work of the French department. Meetings have been held monthly. Guest speakers have addressed the group, and students have participated in the discussion. Although the cafeteria is scarcely reminiscent of a Parisian cafe students have congregated there under the direction of this organization and held weekly luncheon forums. At this time only an embryonic organization, this group plans to continue its studious yet social gatherings to new heights next year with the ideal of creating further interest in the diplomatic language of the world. 166Newman Club ■ The Newman Club is an organization of Catholic students attending non-Catholic colleges and universities. It is a club of Catholic culture and Catholic fellowship, established to strengthen and fortify the spiritual life of the students, to stimulate and increase their interest and knowledge of their religion, and to bring about their mutual acquaintance through proper social contacts with students of their own age. all of whom have the same faith and same Catholic ideals. Cardinal John Henry Newman has l een chosen our patron, because his ideals, namely, love of truth, intellectual honesty, humility, courage, and aversion to vulgarity and coarseness, are the Catholic ideals for which we stand. The first Newman Club was formed in 1S93 at the University of Pennsylvania by five students. This group progressed rapidly and gradually several other schools took up the same idea, 'rhe Newman Club was established on this campus soon after the University was founded, with Father Comber as Chaplain. This year has seen seventeen new members initiated into the club, with the initiation services being held at the Church of the Little Flower, Coral Gables. The Newman Club meets In ii Doo-Cntbollc school, lliey work earnestly In keep lium-Inft the Home of Uielr religious Ideal . twice a month, on the first and third Wednesdays, in the assembly room of the Administration Building. While the meetings arc open, full membership is enjoyed only through initiation. This year, as usual, the Newman Club sponsored a booth at the Chi Omega Carnival. All proceeds made from this project have been placer! in a fund for the purchase of a complete set of the Catholic Encyclopedia to be presented to the University library. The Miami Chapter of the Newman club will lie represented at the annual Federation Convention, which will be held in New York, July 5, 6, and 7. This is the first year the chapter has sent a delegate to the national convention, and Milton De Voo has been chosen as the representative. Each year, one member of the group is chosen as a member of the John Henry Newman Honorary Society. This is the highest honor a chapter can confer upon a person. To qualify as a candidate for this honor, the member must have done outstanding work in furthering the Newman Club and bringing greater honor to the name of our patron, John Henry Cardinal Newman, through exemplary conduct and activities, both on and off the campus. We have chosen Elizabeth Wylie to receive this honor for her enthusiastic interest and efforts in her work with the chapter. 167Religious Clubs ■ The Methodist Student Organization of the University of Miami was organized this year under the guidance of Reverend Harry Waller, sponsor, and Mary Ola Reynolds, adviser. Reverend Waller is pastor of the Coral (inhles Methodist Church, and Miss Reynolds is director of Christian Education at Trinity Methodist Church. The Methodist young jH-ople groups of Greater Miami have also helped sponsor the organization. The officers who served this year were: Dot Lowe, president; Mary Reed, secretary; and Royce Courtney, treasurer. Ezra Sellers was originally elected president, but upon his resignation, the vice-president, Dot Lowe, was elected president. The M.S.O. or Wesley Foundation is organized on campus all over the nation. It is present in six of the Florida colleges, presenting a program of religious activity and service for college students. The purpose is as follows: to provide a fellowship of Christian students, to present a program to help them meet and solve their problems, to further Christian ideals upon the campus, to encourage students to be active members of local churches. The officers who have been elected to serve next year are Dot Lowe, president; Earl Rinehart, vice-president; Kathleen Wilson, secretary; and Wallace Penny, treasurer. The committee chairmen are Laura Greene, worship: Gladys Tubbs, program; Margaret Griffin, social service; Elaine Preston, publicity; Ruth Pressett and Ed Langston, social: Betty Lou Shelley and Royce Courtney, arrangements; Jimmie Dixon and Earl Rinehart, music. ■ The Presbyterian students of the University of Miami organized the College Presbyterian Organization at the lieginning of the semester this year, with the puqwjse in view, to make Christ real in the lives of their fellow students. They have held meetings ever)' Thursday since their organization. The first meeting of each month is devoted to a business session; the second meeting is devotional; the third is social, and the last meeting is taken by a guest sjieaker. On February’ 28, the Westminster Presbyterian Church, interested in seeing a Presbyterian group organized on the campus, invited the 112 Presbyterian students to a Ixtnquet. It was at this time that the first plans for the organization were laid. A committee was appointed with Bill Hallman, chairman and Eunice Stripling, secretary: committee members were Alan West, Bill Yarrington, Mary Devore, Bib Hess, and Dick Harvey. The committee drew up a Constitution which was adopted at the first meeting of the group. Officers for the rest of the term were also elected. Bill Hallman was chosen president: Dick Harvey, vice-president; Eunice Stripling, secretary; and Harriet Foster, treasurer. These officers will also serve next year. The faculty adviser for the group is Mrs. T. C. Brownell. One of the main aims of the group is to get religious chapel programs at the university. I( 8The Snarks The Snark of fiction is that very elusive and very interesting, strange animal in Lewis Carrol's famous poem, The Hunting of the Smirk. The Snark of real life is also a very strange animal, to most common. ordinary people. The Snark has been observed ever since he first made his appearance on the campus in 1934. He disappeared and then reemerged a short time thereafter. His habits are nocturnal ; the Snark tends to Ik very fraternal, and to meet with others of the species at appointed intervals, usually once every month. A curious bond of unseen sympathy seems to exist between all Snarks. Aside from this community of spirit possessed by each Snark for all his colleagues, the distinguishing mark of any Snark is his preoccupation with paj er and pencil, pen and ink, or typewriter. But enough for the overt behavior of the Snark. Let us assume a more sympathetic attitude and take a look at the Snark as an individual much like one of ourselves, for that is what he is, an ordinary human being, albeit he lives his life under the domination of the most extraordinary conception of the importance of creative writing. The puqjose of the Snark Club is to provide students who are seriously interested in creative writing. and who write themselves, with a forum of similarly interested students in which each student may present his work for the criticism of all other Snarks. The Snarks have found this system to lie very efficient. The system provides for a furious lining about of the critical and creative ball. Each Snark who attends a meeting is required to bring with him a creative contribution. In this way no Snark may escape the acute critical probings of his brother or sister Snark. Woe be it to the Snark who fails to bring with him his creative production, for he is soon relegated to the status of Boogem, a disgrace so ignominious in its implications that the offending Snark will not long suffer it, and soon makes amends by presenting for Snarkian approval a literary masterpiece, or thereabouts. For example, in a typical meeting of Snarks such or such a Snark reads his poem or play. Immediately he is the object of merciless critical attack Ttir Smirk at rot.

Then another Snark reads his short story or essay, and the first Snark reaps his gleeful revenge by criticizing the second Snark’s work. In this manner every Snark gives and takes in the true spirit of literary endeavor. Cooperation and mutual helpfulness are a first Snarkian principle. The Snarks are a small group, and they have no formal organization. A person who is not a Snark may well ask what it is that is the guiding spirit of the Snarks and what has held the Snark Club together and united through the five years of its history. Perhaps only a Snark himself could answer that question. He would probably say. “We Snarks. however different we may be from each other in other ways, have a common vital interest in literature that we want to create it ourselves. And we have a deep understanding of each other through literature. We have a common knowledge of literary problems. And literary problems are life’s problems.’’ To Mrs. Natalie Grimes Lawrence and to Mr. Lewis Leary, the Snarks wish to extend their thanks. The part played by these two faculty members in building up the Snark Club cannot lie overemphasized. 169The Y’s Have It ■ Two of the most influential organizations on any campus are the students' Christian associations, 'they are voluntary religious organizations, furnishing a common meeting ground for all Christian students. While various other groups are necessarily restricted as to members and activities, the “Vs" are open to everyone and take an important part in all school functions. They are devoted primarily to the maintaining of the highest standards and ideals, and to the promotion of all campus activities. The Y.W.C.A. of the University of Miami has made an impressive record during the past year. Under the capable leadership of Charlotte Meggs. president, they carried on the “Big Sister" tradition in the fall by appointing an older girl to act as “big sister” to each new girl; aided in the sale of tuberculosis seals and also gave a party for fifty underprivileged children at Christmas; and enjoyed a series of social events throughout the year. Included on the social calendar were a three-day Camping Retreat at Grevnolds Park in September: the annual Friendship Tea for all new women students, and a buffet supper in the penthouse in October; a supper meeting for the cabinet given by the Advisory Board in November; a joint YAV.C.A.-Y.M.C.A. spaghetti supper in February'; the annual membership banquet in March, at which elections of officers and the Advisory' Board were held; and "The Last Round-up,” a miniature retreat at Matheson Hammock in April. In addition to these social events, the Y.W.C.A. took part in the "Hanging of the Greens,” the World Fellowship Vesper service held annually at the local Y.W.C.A. in December: sent delegates to the State Christian Youth Conference in January anti to the Florida Area Leadership meeting in April, at which there were delegates from six colleges, negro and white; and provided at their meetings such interesting speakers as Dr. McMaster and Jimmie Pless, boys’ secretary of the Miami Y.M. C.A., who gave a rejx rt on the World Youth Conference in Amsterdam, Holland. To conclude a very successful year, the Y.W.C.A. will select four girls as delegates to the Blue Ridge convention this summer. With such a varied and interesting year behind them, the members of the Y.W.C.A. can sincerely say that they have lived up to their purpose: "We, the members of the Young Women’s Christian Association of the University of Miami, unite in a desire to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task, we seek to understand Jesus and follow Him." Y.W.C.A. members include: Charlotte Meggs, president; Betty Lou Baker, vice-president; Bernice Milliman, treasurer; Laura Green, secretary; and Dorothy Lowe, social chairman. The Young Men's Christian Association of the University of Miami, was not quite as active as the Young Women's Christian Association this year, but after reorganizing in the middle of the year, they have made very promising plans for the future. Lloyd White was elected president of the group, and he is well supported by the following officers: Leslie Mann, vice-president; Bill Holman, secretary: and A1 Lang, treasurer. 170SOCIAL LIFEApf ir lntl«r Klitn trW«l III HI M»h ami injn) ll » Junior I’iomi at Ilir umr turn.

This year freshmen swarmed over the school in greater quantities than ever before. Don Child-derdon's V.C. got them pretty well lined up those1 first few days and then did something new in V.C. history by sponsoring a tea dance for the poor, bewildered group. At the President s reception at the Biltmore, the freshmen were given their first real chance to go social. The Biltmore is the perfect setting for the natural formality of this dance which has come to lie one of the pet traditions of the U. Rush week came as scheduled and with it the usual whirl anil mystery that surrounds it every year. Sororities and fraternities put on their best bib and tucker ami lacked the novices in. Football season with all its trimmings started with a history making bonfire complete with snake dances, cheering, and spirit put on by the up and coming freshmen. The Wake Forest “incident" of the next evening ended up with friends and foes alike having a big time at the M Club dance at the Country Club. The Soph-Frosh Jinx dance started the week c:id of the eventful Tamp game. Everyone hail to w. Ik under a ladder to enter the dance, and then it was up to them to jitter away the jinx. Half the student body trouped with the team up to Tampa and pot a chance to gloat over the 32-7 score. A quick fla'h to the dance and then onto the train again, and the weary students "roared" their way home. Next game and another victory and another M" Club dance. This time a full moon was the added attraction, and even Bol ins forgot their troubles as Mem Olson swung out in the beautiful Country Club ptio. "Dancing, singing, apple-bobbing, ping-png. croquet, marshmallow and wrinie toasting, apple cider drinking in the lantern-lighted gardens of the Ashe estate -if you don't remember you must be an upper classman ticca use none of the Freshmen will forget their big day at their Halloween party. Costumes were the rule of the day. and Sadie Haw kins and Dotty Lamour lioth managed to be at the party. The ‘M" Club dance after the Catholic U game was given at the Biltmore because of "unavoidable circumstances." The new setting gave the dance an unexpected formality, and. all in all, the gang was glad to troop back to the Country Club after the Texas Tech • Miami game the next week-end. The freshman victory over the Gordon Military Academy put everyone in good spirits for the "Frosh Football" in the cafeteria after the game. Margaret Klotx and Keith Phillips were co-chairmen, and they put on a really swell dance. The women all got together one morning and decided to have something of their very own. They organized a Coed Council; elected Adele Rickel, president; Virginia Allen, vice-president; and Rosemarie N'orcross. secretary and launched their program for the year. They started something new by sponsoring Monday and Wednesday teas given at the penthouse of the Administration Building. You Can't Take. It With You was a memorable prformance. Speed Marvin's Grandfather Sycamore 172was noted tops by even the Hurricane's most dyseptic critics. Something new in contests this year—Plain Jane. Everyone voted and everyone speculated, but Lynn Bullard won it. Yes. the title, despite its rather unappealing connotation, was a much coveted one. because Plain Jane was to have a real treat and all on Burdine’s. Lynn certainly wasn't in need oi any improvement, but she did look unusually lovely when she was presented at the Homecoming Dance as a Burdines “product.” The introduction of Freddie Ashe's Lonesome and Blue was a special feature of the Drake “M” Club dance. The rainy night seemed sort of appropriate. “Sadie Hawkins" dance at the Pi Chi house and all of the Yocums were there—Elaine Devery and George Hamilton won the honors for being the most authentic Dog Patchers. The Phi Alphas had their jungle dance the same night, and the Lambda Chi's had a beach party—all in all that ought to account for a large per cent of the party goers. Homecoming! Everybody could have a different story of what they did on this eventful week-end. and still they'd Ik telling the truth. There was so much doing even,’ minute that you can hardly pick the high spots. First there was an extra special l onfire with sky-rockets, and a street dance with something new in floor shows. Sororities and fraternities all said “Welcome" to the old grads in the most original way they could. The KKG's and the Kappa Sigs took the prizes for the best decorated houses. The Homecoming dance after the game was something special and to dorm girls | articularly it was a night to remember three o’clock permission would make any occasion gala. Eddie Baumgarten kept the crowd at the Old Mill for a few extra hours playing Florida and Miami songs on the Novachord. I he first concert featured Alexander Kipnis of the Metropolitan, and the students packed the bal-conies. The fourth who could see had the added enjoyment of watching the people arrive in their best bib and tuckers: the others enjoyed the music. Thanksgiving and the trip to South Carolina— the cold weather gave a real thrill to the shivering crackers, and the army men gave our own band some competition. Freshman - Sophomore Day was climaxed by a dance at the cafeteria where all were invited as guests of Kappa Sig. The North Carolina game, the “M" Club dance, and the Frosh game, and their dance gave us a packed week-end with everyone in sort of a football haze. Sometime during the activities Larry Long, V.C., was taken for a swim in the patio pool by some resentful freshmen—the worms turner!! The Georgia game terminated the football season. Martha Dorn. Varsity Girl 1939, and June Burr, Varsity Girl 1938, were sponsors. The patio of the Country Club was the rather chilly setting for the last “M" Club dance of the year. Christmas holidays and the l i Chi Queen of Clubs—Beverly Lack was selected by the group of judges and was crowned in the traditional service at midnight as the Queen of Hubs. Helene Putnam and Dottie Lightman were princesses. We had our share of parades this year. The University showed Miami just what a football parade should look like; floats and everything were in the Georgia parade. Zeta Tau Alpha’s “Gone with the Wind" float won first prize. The Orange Bowl parade was given a University touch by the presence of freezing co-eds on almost every float. Football gave way to basketball enthusiasm and two games a week-end didn't slow up the ardent fans. Boxing CJil OiiH-Kd Atm« Jane l.indftrcn. took t»i - Kappa crown Tor May Ourcn.

Joseph Szigeti brought his violin to our next concert and students held hands in the balcony. Exams were coming up and •’cramming” dates were becoming popular. Lambda Chi Alpha came on campus and the Delta Sig's had reason to feel proud. They celebrated with a dance at the country club—the first dance since Christmas. The school attended and congratulated the ribboned Lambda Chi’s. After the boxing matches at the Beach Arena the Campus Citizens honored the “sluggers” at their Hollywood Premiere dance in the cafeteria. Contestants in a “movie-double” contest had been selected during the day. but no one ever bothered to pick the winner. Elizabeth Ann Biggers as Shirley Temple was someone's original thought. Kay Kyscr became the Wednesday night fad and Univcrsityites packed the Grove theatre. They seemed to have the knack of being selected as contestants on the broadcast. One night Elaine Dev-ery and Harry Jacobson tried and failed! Jim Orr. the “All American Boy,” took second place one night without much prompting from the audience. Robert Ripley came right to our own Cardboard Theatre for his broadcast; so on Friday nights we clapped or cheered as the signs directed and felt very much on the air. The new term and a miniature rush week. The fresh prey was quickly stalked and taken, and the sorority gals relaxed. The Sinfonia Swingfest which ought to l»e a success just for its name, gathered the crowd on a Friday night just after exams were over, but not forgotten. Everyone had to step through a musical note to enter the cafeteria, but once this feat was over no other acrobatics were required. She’s A-Gonna He a Hoy and The Green Dragon, gems from the minds of University students, were presented in the theatre to an audience which didn't throw the tomatoes that some had predicted. On the contrary, the plays were well received, and everyone The PI Cl»l Queen of Club ; Beverly l-»ck Rot the erown.

Ken Ormiston was named “Hull of the Ball,” and he really kept the spinster stags busy. The Women came to the Cardboard Theatre, and the Theta Alpha Phi’s proved their ability. Even the Hurricane critic could do nothing but rave. The student audience was on its good behavior and restrained from its usual participation in the performance. Dorm girls got together and gave themselves a dance al out the first week in March. The dance was in the card room of the Administration Building, and Hob Reinert’s orchestra supplied the rythmn. The dramatics department came through again with their extra special presentation of Pygmalion. George Dawkins seemed to prefer Shaw’s Professor Higgins to that of la?slie Howard and so rather baffled the movie conscious audience. The Kampus King Kapers- the Kappa Sig's did a spectacular job of advertising, since you couldn’t look out a class window without seeing an invitation to come ami dance at the Miami Biltmore on Friday evening. Tommy Hilbish took the title and was crowned by Helene Putnam, the 1940 Kappa Sig Girl. Elections came and everybody worried. Everyone wanted to l e a “Boss Tweed" and the poor candidates tried to ignore them. The perennial campaigners got into swing and had a big time for themselves. The adult students were bullied into voting and fraternity pledges worked way into the night (a slight exaggeration) giving out handbills. After all this we still had to have a run off vote, and, finally, a president was elected. Tommy Hilbish. The sophomores, perhaps still nursing a high school yen, took over the Ponce gym for their Stable Session.

Enoch Light at the Junior Prom—at last the big name band! The beautiful country club patio was 175a perfect setting for a dance to be remembered. Humes Lasher, prom chairman, led the Grand March, twice around. The balloons and confetti gave the affair a gala appearance. The Hurricane Chorus stole the show in their traditional fashion at the Theta Alpha Phi Follies. The sororities and frats gave their all in a dramatic way. and everyone enjoyed his own act l est! The Song Fest went social this year and moved to the Country Club. The new setting proved really effective, and the singers seemed to respond. Each group sang two songs of their own selection, and everyone agreed that as a whole we re improving. The Phi Mu Alpha's then supplied their own inimitable music, and the dance was on. There may be more to school than just fun, but looking back over this program one could hardly find a place to squeeze in it. Next year will bring another "green" group, another football season, more cheering, more dancing, but until then let's just stop to remember. Walt Klcliefskl "llh his cui JuM to prove (hat aren't tli» m»I ones to win trophies. 176CLASSESFreshman ■ If anyone ever fell that he was anything but an individual, his complex was ascertained beginning September ISth on University Drive. Green dinks swarmed the slop shop, the classrooms, the halls, and anything but the patio. It didn't take us long to learn that we were no longer just plain John Brown, but “Rat" Brown from “Ratville" and here to sing "Hail to the Spirit." Being the largest Freshman Class ever to enroll in the University, we felt that our aims should measure accordingly. We got a swell start as Keith Phillips took over to make the first bonfire one of the biggest the school had ever witnessed. The following week, elections made a bow and campaign signs from nowhere adorned even,- tree. wall, nook and corner, in school, to bring about the election of the ambitious officers. After this, the class was better organized, and we began the numerous tasks which we had mapped out for the class to accomplish. This was the time the "All-American Boy," Jim Orr, took his position as chairman of the Card Cheering section. After weeks of unsuccessful attempts to put the Card Stunt over, and after weeks of biting editorials in the Hurricane from our upperclassmen, claiming that we were callow freshmen, Jim Orr blew his victorious horn, and the Card Stunt was a success. This was at the Catholic U. game. For weeks Jim beamed incessantly. However, all was not so smooth during football season, for the Vigilance Committee made it plain to us that we were not yet masters of our souls. A MarKnrrt Klot . Keith Phillips. Lucille Jane certain group of aspiring young freshmen decided to revolt against their dominant reign, and tacked signs up all over the bulletin boards challenging the bully V.C.'s. But all was forgiven and forgotten, and Ned Turner returned placidly to his throne. Athletics in the Freshman Class reached a new peak as the freshman footballers won the title of undefeated state champions of Florida, as they conquered foes. Gordon Military Academy, Stetson, Rollins, and Florida. The class sponsored dances in honor of the visiting teams after each game in the school Cafeteria, and although the financial success was not brilliant, we were able to brag about the social success of the "hops." We attributed our good luck in winning these games to the sponsors, girl members of the Freshman Class, who were chosen by the Sponsor Committee of the Frosh team. Class representatives at the meeting were, of course, as is the tradition, scarce. But this time, thank goodness, we can blame the first month of non-cooperation to the fact that we had to meet outside on the intramural court, because of the renovation of the Cardboard Theatre. Goodness knows what happened to them after the theatre was completed I Anyway, Field Day was quite a success, as the Freshmen battled the Sophomores to decide whether dinks should be disregarded. Well, we lost by one point, but the local newspapers received a freshman's side of the story, and the next day our emancipation day was splashed all over the sports section of the Herald. However, Don Chadderdon. Soph l’rexy, mended that and we suffered for another two weeks, at which time he wrote a convincing letter in the Hurricane, proclaiming the end of Freshman Hazing. Oh Happy Day! Our strange independence had us reeling at first, but soon we were able to walk in the patio without being accompanied by another freshman (who was brought along for protection) wear orange clothes to our uttermost content. and snap our fingers at any upperclassman who even hinted that he wanted a match. What a life! After the Christmas holidays were over and Jim Orr had snapped back to normal and come hack down to earth, freshman meetings were few and far between, as the activities of the class were comparatively few during the first part of the year. But 178soon the blaring reality that Freshman Frolics would have to come some time dawned upon us, and a meeting was called to get a little action on it. President Phillips appointed Nathalie Lowe and Louise Miller as co-chairmen for the affair, and everything was off to a good start. Meetings were held in dear old 218, and. surprisingly enough, were well attended—for the first month. However, after repeated attempts to secure a date for our frolics, and incidcntly repeated faihires, the whole thing was beginning to look like a lost cause. Finally, on May 10. everything was ready to go. and the actors who were going to supply entertainment for the floor show, were going around with jittery nerves plainly written on their faces. Snuffy Smith and Don Angel 1 wrote a new song for the show and Babs Morley did it justice with her su-preme warbling. It was a great success, anti everybody was satisfied that the "rats” had finally put something over big. We were mighty proud of our Frolics, which were held at the Sky Dance Club, because we had worked so long and so hard (and in vain we had thought) for it to be a success. And, of course, there was that money we had borrowed from the Senate! Yes, the Class of '43 was a great class, we thought. The sororities and fraternities made a great rush for the desired individuals the second week of school, and everyone was quite satisfied with the results after pledging the last day. We were literally swept off of our feet by the very evident ‘•niceness” of the group, but everything was normal again after peldging, and once more we were just plain, dumb Freshmen, who didn't know anything and thought we knew everything. The class was well represented in the music school, as the members fo the band helper! us out with comic acts for all of the Freshman games. These acts during the half were a great success, and this is mainly due to our freshman band memlwrs. who were always there to be called on. 179Sophomores ■ Just two very short years ago, the class of '42 came to the University of Miami filled with various ideas regarding college life. Some came just to study and work; others came for the fun; but essentially all were here to do the best we could in a scholarly way and receive as much from college as we could. As freshmen, we were taken in hand by the traditional Vigilance Committee which taught us the school songs, yells, and the fast growing traditions of our young school. Under this strict, but constructive. criticism of the Vigilance Committee, we, as a class, were closely knit into a unit which has worked together cooperatively for the best interest of the class and school. Of our freshmen days, it must Ik said that we regret the passing of those days of fun. frolic, etc. We really enjoyed them; we realized that it was up to us. as sophomores, to help the new frosh get started in college as well as we could. At the beginning of the year, wc formed our Vigilance Committee with this thought in mind: Let’s guide the frosh rather than push them with a paddle, although, even then, we found it was quite necessary to resort to the old custom of using the paddle in a few cases. So we brought into effect the traditional rat court headed by Ed Turner, who did a thorough job in d monstrating the proper attitude for the frosh to take. One of the things that the V.C. did this year was to help the Campus Citizens in the installation of Orientation Week at the University. Orientation Week served to acquaint the new students with our buildings, classrooms, faculty, etc. We l elieve sincerely that is is a splendid idea, and we are only proud to have helped a little toward its establishment in our school. To climax Orientation Week, the V.C. gave a “Get-Acquainted Dance” for the frosh in the auditorium. So successful was the dance in bringing the frosh closer together, that we hope next year’s sophomore class will give a repeat dance for the new freshmen, thus establishing another precedent for the University. Later in the fall, a joint Soph-Frosh dance was held for two reasons: One being to establish better relationship between the classes; however, the main reason was to aid financially the frosh in their efforts to promote the card stunt at the football games. This splendid idea, while in its infancy, has proven its worth by the unusual amount of interest taken by the student body. Hearty congratulations are in order for Chairman Jim Orr and his coworkers for the progress made in this project. Just before the Christmas holidays, the V.C. revived the traditional field day. a battle between the frosh and the sophomores. The freshmen were fighting for their freedom and the sophomores for their honor. The battle raged on and on but in the final test, the sophomores won out. A good time was had, and we can't help but feel that a close bond of friendship was formed as an outcome. While our part in assisting the frosh to know the school better was comparatively small, we did our level best to carry out what was required of us. In turning over the job of the Vigilance Committee to next year's sophomore class, our only hope is that l orutli I.OWC, l)mi 'li.i 111rr I hi. H;unlv Mrtiunr. Ilow Murk Nnrcro . 180they have as good a frosh class to work with as we had this year. For our annual dance, it was decided by the class that we should have another Barn Dance, thus, repeating last year’s highly successful affair. This year's dance was just as well-accepted as it was last year. Thus, as the year draws to a close, we can t help but regret its passing. Time has | assed too quickly over the past two years, two enjoyable years that we won’t have again. Our sophomores are well-represented in every activity in school—student government, Hurricane. Ibis, dramatics, debating, sports, music, and many other things. In other words, we believe we have found ourselves. Much has been accomplished but much lies ahead. The class officers for this year have been: Don Chadderdon, president; Dorothy Lowe, vice-president; Randy Mebane, secretary; Rose Marie Nor- cross, treasurer. Our sophomore senators elected to represent the class included Billie Gillespie, Helene Putnam, and Charles Lovett. Officers who were selected this year to head next years’ Junior class and put the magnificent plans generated by sophomores into effect are Don Chad-derdon, who was re-elected to the presidency; Ruth McDonald, who was chosen as vice-president; Patty Hollarn, who will be the class treasurer; and Rose Marie Xorcross who was re-elected to the post of treasurer. Senators who will represent the class in the student governing body arc James Munley. Charles Lovett, and Dorothy Lowe. As for next year, we realize that we have a difficult job in promoting an even bigger Junior Prom than the excellent one provided for us by this year’s class. Work has already been started on the dance, and, if our plans work out, we promise the student body a pleasant surprise. So, with this in mind, we leave the year 1939-40 behind with regret in its passing so quickly. 1S1Juniors ■ The largest freshman class in the history of the University met in the old auditorium to elect officers in September of ’37. Brow-beaten and almost scared to death by Bob Olson and his Vigilance Committee, they gathered and. after a hectic meeting, elected Jolly Snowden as their first class president. Promptly, said election was called unconstitutional by the Honor Court. It seemed that there were 340 ballots and only 179 freshmen present, which for some reason was a little irregular. Result: another election. After three more, all declared unconstitutional because of slight discrepancies in the vote total and the number of “rats" within the confines of the auditorium, this got to be a habit: so as a result, the freshmen ended up the year with no class president. Paul Brick served for a while, and in his brief administration, the class staged its Freshman f rolics, which was quite a show. However, just to keep up their record of a president-a-week. Paul dropped out of school. This left only vice-president Ethel Roger and secretary-treasurer Peggy O'Donnell in office again, and that’s the way it was when June rolled around. Putting two and two together, you can see that the freshmen gave all indications of being an unusual class. Charlie Franklin, who had wandered down from the Tennessee hills in the meantime, was elected president in ’38. He was president all year, completely wrecking all traditions set by the class the year Indore. A miracle had happened! Ethel Roger was elected again as vice-persident; Winnie Wood, secretary: and Matt Borek. treasurer. Dotty Ashe, George Hollahan, and Dan Satin were named to the Student Senate. ‘Tuffy’ Hollahan headed the V.C., and the sophs got revenge by whaling the dickins out of the freshmen. One class member even sold Hurricanes to the greener freshmen for a nickel apiece. A Spring Dance at the Coral Gables Country Club early in May climaxed the year's activities, and a surplus of almost fifty dollars was in the sophomore treasury as a result of the dance. The class named Charlie to head them again in '39-’40, and Peggy O'Donnell was elected vice-president. Justine Rainey and Elton Rosenblatt were secretary and treasurer respectively, and George Hollahan, Dan Satin and Winnie Wood were chosen to represent the juniors in the Senate. With the 13th Annual Junior Prom staring them in the face, they started to work. As was mentioned a few paragraphs back, the Class of '41 was unusual. So just to prove it, they got Enoch Light’s orchestra, the first "big-name" band in history to play at a University of Miami dance, for the Prom and on Friday evening, April 12, presented the biggest, best, and most enjoyable dance ever seen on the campus. With the seniors as guest of honor, over five hundred persons packed the Coral Gables Country Club to hear Enoch. Peggy Mann, and the famous •Light Brigade.' The palm-fringed, star-lit patio was lieautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns and hundreds of balloons for the only tropical college prom in the whole country. At midnight, the traditional Grand March took place, with Prom Chairman Humes lusher leading the procession of over two-hundred couples, which was climaxed with the presentation of favors—tiny blue and silver dance programs — to each girl. A special number was then dedicated to the seniors, with only members of the graduating class permitted on the dance floor ; and was followed by one for only juniors. Proclaimed ‘‘the best Prom we ever had” by all, the dance ended at two. Patrons for the annual affair were Dr. and Mrs. Bowman F. Ashe, Miss Mary B. Merritt, I)r. and Mrs. Jay F. W. Pearson, Miss Bertha Foster, Dr. and Mrs. John Thom Holdsworth, Dean and Mrs. 182JuMIiif Rftlnry. wcrriury; (3mrlm Franklin, preiUtaat; IVmo o'lKitiurll, vlrr-pmhlrnli Kllwi llufiiblnll, Irrtraurrr. Henry S. West, and Mr. nad Mrs. U. J. Hiss. Chaperones were Mr. and Mrs. Poster E. Alter, Lieutenant and Mrs. Thomas C. Brownell, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Downes, and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Ormiston. Members of the Prom Committee included Humes Lasher, chairman; Charles Franklin, class president ; Robert Rigney, Irving Lebowitz, and Thomas Hilbish. band; Elton Rosenblatt, Winifred Wood, and George Litchfield, tickets; Elaine Devery and Catherine Hefinger, favors; David Andre, Crumpton Snowden. Pat Weiland, Fred Hawes, and Gilbert White, decorations; and Gene Cone, Sid Kline, Jacques Wilson, and Paul Barbuto, publicity. In looking back upon the past three years, the Class of ’41, like all other classes before it, has gone through a period of development—first a group of green freshmen, then as sophisticated sophomores, and finally into a class with a seriousness of purpose. Those past three years have been enjoyable ones —years in which the class has seeped of the spirit and traditions of the University of Miami. It has played an integral part in the school's growth, progress, and development. The class has representatives in every activity on the campus—sports, student government, the Hurricane and Ibis, debating, dramatics, social fraternities. honor organizations, and the various religious clubs—and it is actively taking part in every branch of college life. Terr)' Fox, Johnny Douglas, Matt Borek, Jolly Snowden. Johnny Kurucza, and A1 Cohen have been outstanding football players drawn from the ranks of the junior class. Dave Andre, Jack Huguelet, Larry Kaplan, and Bill Reynolds make up a large part of the swimming team. Joe Bonano liesides being a former president of the Y.M.C.A. is a boxer. George Pero and George Parks are both varsity tennis players. Seymour Simon, besides being a scholastic whizz, is a new member of Iron Arrow, next year’s treasurer of the student government, and co-sports editor of the Hurricane. Jacques Wilson will be president of the International Relations Club next year, and he writes a column for the Hurricane. Lloyd Whyte, tapped for Iron Arrow this year, was president of the B.S.U. and will be the leader of the Y.M. next year. Eleanor Gardner distinguishes herself in English Honors. The music department boasts of many juniors. Peggy O Donell and George Dawkins have made their presence known in dramatic circles. Philip Optner and Ted Jackson have been managers of the varsity team for years. Tommy Hilbish worked up to his job of student government presidency. He was the leading man in basketball and has played in the band. Only one more year at the University of Miami lies ahead for the class. In that time, it hopes to continue as it has in the past, and to broaden the many heritages and ideals that have been instilled in every member throughout these past three years. Officers for the senior year have changed only slightly. Franklin will continue as president, Justine Rainey will Ik secretary, and Elton Rosenblatt will hold down the treasurer’s job for the second year. Dan Satin, Winifred Wood and Humes Lasher will serve as senators. 183Top row: Virginia C. Allen, David C. Andre, Robert Appleget, Dorothy Ashe, Betty L. Baker, Maxine Baker. Paul F. Barbuto.

It was the largest freshman class in the history of the University, and we were uneasy because we were all strangers, but the green “Dinks’' soon gave us a feeling of unity. Grant Stockdale was elected president. Shrinking from Sal Mastro and his henchmen as all freshmen shrink from their V.C., we were herded like sheep, harassed and pestered by the menacing V.C. paddle. Hut all were filled with eagerness, ambition, and ideals (as are most freshmen), and we went about our first year duties with an earnestness which most had never before possessed. Bonfires were built . . . we filled the stadium, rain or shine, and cheered madly for the team we had so quickly adopted and taken to our collective hearts . . . we took English 101 and Survey of European History . . . we wrote home even,' week to our families and high school romances . . . we pledged a fraternity . . . some decided on their majors. In the spring, our treasury surplus allowed us to present the cafeteria with a very official looking big. black clock, and we left school feeling that the past year had seen the most successful freshman class the University had ever l een fortunate enough to have. The next fall, 1937, came our turn at the insignificant freshman, and we resolved to subject our victims to the same tortures which we had endured. We were able to go through the football season with less madness. We had learned that saddle shoes were as much a requirement as English 202 and that class cuts did not mean the end of the world. We entered into all activities and consciously felt that all of them revolved around us. Last year we slipped more quickly back into the groove of college life. A pseudo-dignified air was assumed, and we looked indulgently upon freshman and sophomore antics. Science requirements were finisher!, and the hunt for missing credits began in anticipation of our senior year. We pondered long upon the problem of “What shall I major in?" We wore our clothes more casually, and college slang flowed more readily and unconcernedly from our lips. All of the tricks of apple-polishing had berm well-learned and most knew all of the cut alibies by heart. Politicians blossomed in ever)' section of the class. Most of us by now had learned to take our romances not too seriously, l ecausc we had seen so many come and go. We had forgot our habits of coo|H ration and slipped into a state of unconcerned disorder. Soon after Harry Hayward, our president, left school, we elected Mel Patton to take his place. We decided, as does every Junior class, that we must give the best Junior Prom yet given. It was held at the Country Club, and all were justly proud of it. Our last year, ISO of us returned as seniors, a little awed at the fact that only one year was left, and we resolved to make the most of it. We came back thoroughly saturated with traditions and serious ambition. Up to the last our interests had been chiefly personal—all completed their requirements, and we l egan planning our futures. Mel Patton, president, saw to it that our senior week was packed with activities for our pleasure . . . picnics, dances, concerts, and banquet. Then came Commencement at the Biltmore. It was with regret and reluctance that we walked up in our long black robes to get diplomas from a faculty that had become a very important part in our lives. 190 Kay Oral.

PHONE 2-3330 215SIGNPOSTS OF OPPORTUNITY To you who are now leaving schooldays behind - who are starting on the highway of Life-seeking your rightful place in the world, your "Golden Opportunity "-we say, "Look around you!" • Just twenty years ago your Alma Mater did not exist. Coral Gables was a pinewooded wilderness. Miami was less than a 216third of its present size. Miami Beach had scarcely emerged from its mangrove flats. Miami's title as "The Magic City" has been well earned through a remarkable past. • Yet the future is even more brilliant. The past three years have seen the flowering of the greatest period of sound growth and development in Miami's history. Even now that expanding force is driving on to new highs-in increased population, in building, in business prosperity. • We invite you to share that future. Whether you come from afar or nearby, it is reasonable to believe that you may well find your opportunity-your "acres of diamonds"-spread out around you right here. • Miami's towering skyscrapers are signposts - symbols of a living, growing, progressive city-your city, where you have been welcomed during your college days - where you will be welcome for the rest of your life.
