They arrive on the dot at 8:25 a.m., just in time for first hour classes, and stick around the campus till about 4:30 p.m. The GOPHER tells how they spend this time at school. Vii)}]... at Minnesota was different from other years in its own particu- lar way. Although World War II was being waged to the full- est extent and its effect on the University significant, the general campus atmosphere was more settled and down-to-earth than it had been since Pearl Harbor. This " settled " condition was brought about in the main bv two factors. First, the number of servicemen stationed here was greatly decreased. The University changed from a semi-mili- tary campus to a civilian one in a few months. The other factor that gave this character to the University in 1945 was the in- creasing number of veterans who returned to college. Sobered through their military experience, most of these men knew what they wanted to do in college, and were here for business. Minnesota women, who outnumbered the men nine to one, held the majority of campus offices — with the exception of the Page 4 YMCA, fraternities, and Veterans Club, in which fields alone men remained dominant! Realizing that they would never have had such opportuni- ties in normal times, the co-eds felt that they proved themselves capable of college leadership. The purpose of a yearbook is not only to record events of the year, but also to denote trends and changes which occur during that time. We felt that this could best be accom- plished by dividing the Gopher into two logical parts called " The People " and " AVhat They Do, " or the cast of characters and the action of the play. These divisions leave something to be desired in the form of background material to bind the book together as well as supplement the two parts. Therefore, we decided to begin with a longer than usual opening section, called an introduction, which contains history, campus views, and a general review of the most signifi- cant trends and events of the year.

The building was for ROTC training during peace years, but has been in much more extensive use since the beginning of World War II. It was an atmosphere building to yesterday ' s students, but a military headquarters to students of today. through an eminent faculty and administrative staff, there is the long and glorious tradition of liberalism which has ever been a source of in- spiration to students and non-attending persons alike, and which has brought young men and women from every country in the world to it for study. Folivell Is First President The University of Minnesota was established in 1 85 1 under the Territorial Act, prior to the admission of Minnesota as a state into the Union. But it was in 1869 that the actual continuous history of the University began as William Watts Folwell, its first president, assumed his duties. The following fifteen years were marked by many storms among the regents, faculty, and president, as Dr. Folwell attempted to realize his educational aims, particularly his intense inter- est in fostering instruction in the sciences. This lack of harmony between Dr. Folwell and the regents caused him to relinquish the presidency in 1884 and to accept a professorship in political science. Until his death in 1929, at the age of 96, he was a familiar figure on the campus. No account of the history of the University would be complete without mention of John S. Pillsbury, a past president of the Board of Re- gents, who not only made generous gifts in money to the institution, but served it devotedly for many years. Northrop Expands Curriadnm Under Cyrus Northrop, who began his admin- istration in 1885, the University under ' ent rap- id and extensive growth. In an effort to make the University more widely useful. Dr. Northrop pushed the establishment of the Medical School, the Law School, and the Central School of Agri- culture. It was under Dr. Northrop that the Uni- versity made its greatest academic expansion, with the important curricular additions of the Page 8 PORTRAIT of Lotus Delta Coffman is located in the main lounse of the Union which bears his name. Under President Coffman, the Uni- versity took its place among the larger schools of the country. College of Education and the Graduate School established in 1905. Edgar Vincent, a distinguished sociologist and humanist, succeeded Dr. Northrop in 191 1. After an administration of six years he retired and was succeeded by Marion LeRov Burton as the First World War began. Hampered by the serious interference with educational work which the war provoked, the University, under the vig- orous leadership of Dr. Burton, thrived again during the vcars of 19 18 to 192 i, and began a period of tremendously rapid growth in enroll- ment which continued until 1 94 1 . The University Grows Up In 1 9 1 1 the University entered into an exten- sive building program. Within the next eighteen years the University Hospital, Experimental and A Iain Engineering Buildings, the Anatomy Build- ing, Millard Hall, the Chemistry Building, the Stadium, the Lib rary, the Field House, and Northrop Memorial Auditorium were erected. Between 1934 and 1940, new buildings included the Museum of Natural History, Coffman Me- morial Union, Murphy Hall, the Continuation Center, State Board of Health Building, Vincent Hall, and Comstock Hall. FATHER OF THE UNI- VERSITY, John S. Pills- bury was one of the strongest and most gen- erous presidents of the Board of Regents. His statue stands in front of Burton Hall. ( Page? THE DORR FOUNTAIN — ideal waiting spot for the inter-campus car. Coflma is Influence Is Great Under Lotus D. Coffman ' s cightccn-vcar pres- idency, which ended with his untimely death in 1939, the University expanded to such an extent that he has been called " The University Build- er. " The campus was virtually rebuilt; the stu- dent body was doubled; the University achieved academic ranking among the first ten in the na- tion; state appropriations were raised by two million dollars annually. University leaders agree that President Coffman ' s distinctive achievement can best be found in University College, the General College, and the Center for Continua- tion Study. Since Dr. Coffman ' s death, the Board of Re- gents has been attempting to find a successor. THE STEPS of Folwcli Hall arc especially nice because there are no traffic rules. Arts College students run into anyone and everyone — just trying to get into or out of the place! NORTHROP AUDITORIUM is the home of Thursday Convocations and Symphony concerts.

Coffey ' s last one. His secretary, Miss Marie Mousseau (right) introduces a fSv faculty member to him, and he then introduces the guest to his wife. New faculty members and old faithful ones gather together as they look forward to another year. Guy Stanton Ford, and Walter C. Coffey, vet- eran deans of the University, have held the office for short periods. Dr. Coffey, the incumbent, reached retirement age in the spring of 1944, but was appointed for an additional year at that time until tiie Regents were able to decide whom they would invite to succeed him. James L. Mor- rill, president of the University of Wyoming, accepted the post in November and will take of- fice July I, 1945. Freshman Week Starts Year ivith a Bang Freshman Week, that period designated each year for integration of new students, got off to its usual start. 2,090 eager youngsters stood pa- tiently in registration queues, listened to " wel- come " addresses or counseling speeches, arranged their programs, took entrance exams, or, wearied of this, generally disported themselves in the Union lounge, ballroom, and other places where there was entertainment aplenty. The Freshman Week committee spared no ef- fort to arrange a full schedule of activities. Prior to the actual beginning of the Week ' s activities, the YWCA and YAICA sponsored Freshman Camp at Ihduhapi which was attended by 120 THE OLD MEN ' S UNION was used for a time as a Naval Training School, but has been empty again since November. k . m - i M 1 fl " MS ' W i 1 B.BIBKB T ' jb,| ■. r %r t: f ' ) ■• ' . •P ' lU Page 12 SANFORD HALL for freshmen girls reopens again after being occu- pied by the Army ASTP for over a year. In view of critical wartime housing conditions, the dormitory opened just in time. representative members of the class of 1948. On Monday, September 25, 1,000 enrollees were present at " Meet Minnesota Night, " where rep- resentatives of various student organizations en- listed recruits to their ranks and explained their activities. The program for the rest of the Week included open houses in the Unions on both Ag and main campuses, Church Night, teas, smok- ers, and Ag Frosh Frisk, all ending with the big Freshman Dance held in the Union Ballroom. Veteran Enrollment Up Many veterans enrolled at this time, bringing the total number of returning servicemen to ap- proximately 300. These students, two of whom were former WAVES, came under the provi- sions of the government Vocational Rehabilita- tion Program or the GI Bill. The administration expected the number of veterans to rise sharply during each succeeding quarter. The concert season appeared promising. The Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Univer- sity Theatre, and the University Artists Course all advertised interesting programs, and the new Department of Concerts and Lectures entered its first full year of activities. INTO THE LIFE of every Minnesota student comes the time when he must fall in line — and stand and wait. During Freshman Week, the line with the reputation for being the longest can be found before the " FEE PAYMENTS " window in the Administration Building. If it isn ' t a formation for cigarettes, the line usually leads eventually to the pay- ment of bills. Enthusiasm for the football team, under the direction of head coach George Hauscr during the absence of Bernie Bierman, was at its usual high pitch. Smijord Hall Reopens Rooms for students, especially co-eds, were at a premium. This condition was only a little alleviated when the ASTP moved out of San- ford Hall and 378 freshmen girls reoccupicd the famous old dormitory. The Housing Bureau was swamped with applicants, and an appeal was issued to citizens of the adjacent neighborhood for additional facilities. Sororitv rushing began with customary fan- fare on Saturday, September 30, when 1,100 rushces met in the Union Ballroom for a mass get-together. After ten days of teas and dessert dinners, 334 girls were pledged. Study University Labor Problems In an effort to effect a final settlement of the controversies between themselves and the Build- ing Service Employees Union, the Board of Re- gents voted to " obtain the services of some com- petent organization to make a comprehensive survey of wages and working hours of non- academic employees. " This action came as a re- sult of a recommendation by Frank Gallagher of Waseca, impartial investigator appointed by Governor Thye to study and make recommenda- tions on a group of recently appealed labor cases. Student interest in the presidential election was noted as the Campus Committee for Roose- velt and the Republican Club drew the lines of battle. Both groups violently protested the ad- ministration ' s ban of political speech notices from general delivery in student postoffice boxes. In a heart breaking contest, the Michigan Wolverines defeated the Gophers, 28-13, for the first time on Minnesota ' s field since 1932. On October 9, the Naval Training School for electricians ' mates was closed and the entire staff PROBABLV MOST VIVID in students memory of Freshman Week is that grueling experience at the Health Service.

The invitations are given the once-over, and accepted, regretted, or declined. In the meantime, rushees and members try to fit this complicated process into their class schedule for the first week of school, and have quite a time of it. ordered out. This materially reduced the num- ber of servicemen on campus, and once again the old Men ' s Union stood starkly empty. In sharp contrast to the all-time high of troops stationed on campus last year, the remaining contingent, quartered in Pioneer and Shevlin Halls, seemed small indeed. War Chest Falls Short Organizations cooperating in the Campus War Chest began their annual fall drive for funds by setting a goal of $4,500. The funds were to be divided among the World Students Service Fund, which helps former University students who are prisoners of war; SWECC, which allo- cates its funds to service organizations on cam- pus; the Twin Cities War Chest, United Sea- man ' s Service; War Prisoner ' s Aid; and a new scholarship called the Dean Nicholson Fund. Regretably, the Chest closed its 1944 campaign more than $1,000 short of its goal, notwith- standing the fact that the length of the campaign had been extended in an effort to reach the quota. Political Notices Barred from PO ' s 150 copies of a student petition protesting the barring of political speech notices from student P. O. boxes were placed in circulation by mem- bers of campus political organizations. With na- tional elections a month away, all shades of po- litical conviction were expressed in debates, for- ums, and lectures. The encouraging war news on the European front prompted President Coffey, along with others throughout the nation, to issue a state- ment to the student body urging a sane celebra- tion of VE Day. Hopes had been raised too high, however, and there was no need for worry over the celebration so soon. Page 15 PRESIDENT ELECT James L. Morrill, now president of the Univer- sity of Wyoming, smiles as he strolls out of the Union with Jack Gillette, Ruth Christenson, and Sue Parkins of Wyoming University. Fraternity rushing, which opened the second week in October, was more intense and a little more in pre-war style than last year. Although most of the fraternities were still ithout their houses, the program was carried on in grand style when a larger than expected number of boys turned out. Bierwan Returns Lieutenant Colonel Bernie Bierman was re- leased from the United States Marine Corps, hav- ing served 2 i months. On October 1 6 he again took his place on the football coaching staff — but only in an advisory capacity to Dr. Hauser for the balance of the season. He will resume his duties as head coach during the 1 945 football sea- son. Discussion pro and con on the ban on political notices continued to wax hotly. The Daily edi- torialized, students wrote letters, argued with each other, and interviewed members of the ad- ministrative staff. Malcolm M. Willey, vice presi- dent in charge of academic administration, stated PANORAMIC VIEW of the Ag Campus: At the left of the picture are Haeckcr Hall (dairy husbandry and agricultural economics), the Ag Engineering Building, and the Administration Building, which is a center of Ag Campus life because the post office is located there. In the center are the Veterinary Medicine Building and the Dairy Barns. Between the smokestack of the power plant and the water tower when interviewed by an All-University Council committee that the University Senate regulation prohibiting general circulation through the P. O. boxes was not made as a means of censorship, but to protect students from outside advertising and to prevent any serious janitorial problem from arising from literature left on the Union floors. Seven members of t he Campus Republican Club were thrilled to meet presidential candi- date Thomas E. Dewey on October 24. Homeco?mng Week-eitd Draws Crowds Festivities for Homecoming Week-end began with the judging of sorority house decorations. Pi Beta Phi won first prize, and Alpha Gamma Delta came in second. Button sales, placed in the hands of campus organizations, resulted in a sizeable margin for Pi Delta Nu. In a special ceremony at the Homecoming game, Barbara Nordstrom of Delta Delta Delta was chosen queen of the Week-end and presented with a trophy.

L k m -AV. i n THE HOMECOMING BONFIRE burns brishtly as a fitting background for the post-Varsity Show celebration. Made entirely of unsalvageable i ,s material, the bonfire was burned two days earlier by Halloweeners, but was rebuilt to burn again at the proper time. Homecoming dance, all traditional features, were celebrated with much enthusiasm. Religious Emphasis Week began Sunday, No- vember 12, with a general meeting for students and faculty in the Union Ballroom. Dr. Edwin Espy, executive secretary of the national divi- sion of the YMCA, was principal speaker. The Reverend George Fetter, chairman of the steer- ing committee, stated that the purpose of the Week was to emphasize the place of religion in the lives of college trained men and women. During the following week various campus groups held informal discussion meetings, and the Week wound up with a general faculty-stu- dent reception, a radio panel discussion, and other similar affairs in which prominent figures of all faiths took part. " factions, " as organization of the group got un- der way, centering mainly on the interpretation of the word " liberal. " Ruth Cole Nash was elected president, Lee Bond was made vice presi- dent, and the fight between factions was on! Unusually large numbers of students attended the first meetings of the liberal group amidst a great deal of wrangling over organization. The attempt to formulate a definition of a liberal creed precipitated the factional split led, on the one hand, by James Borreson, and on the other, by Lee Bond. Dissension was so great that the Daily was constrained to editorialize consider- ably. Bitterness reached its climax when Borre- son, along with President Nash, withdrew from the organization, followed by approximately half the membership. Liberal Arguments Violent Probably the greatest single campus issue of the year was the formation of a liberal organiza- tion. Its purpose, as stated by its organizers, was to provide an organization for students holding liberal views to take action on specific issues be- sides educating themselves on social and political questions. This was to touch off a lively battle of Football Seasoji Successful The end of the football season saw the Go- phers finishing in the first division, having done better than even the most enthusiastic support- ers had believed possible. Led by the inspiring performance of halfback " Red " Williams, the team, after a rather disappointing start, finished the season brilliantly.

Chair- man Bob Rydholm lends William Pels the mike. Page 19 Campus participation in the Sixth War Loan Drive began, with the goal set at $36,000. With AWS sponsoring the campaign, all campus or- ganizations cooperated. However, despite the valiant efforts of the many students who con- • tributed their services and several large subscrip- tions, the University fell approximately $ 1 0,000 short of its quota. Library Lighting Facilities Poor A great deal of ink was spilled on the subject of lighting facilities in the library, with the usual facetious references to myopic students blindly groping their ways about in the reference room. Letters and editorials appeared in the Daily but the hullabaloo was silenced by a statement issued by Everett W. McDiarmid, head of the library. He explained that the lighting situation would become even worse before improving, because wartime shortages made it impossible for the University to obtain the proper lights for read- ing rooms. The liberal group, having lost much of its membership and no little prestige, elected Ruth Salzman as president and prepared to take up its real work. PICTURESQUE SCENE can be found behind Folwell Hall. Located in the older part of the campus, it is seldom seen by other than Arts THE AG UNION DOOR looks like home to Farm Campus students. " Little Red Oil Cafi " to Harden As finals approached, the general atmosphere began to savour of Christmas. The Ag Campus started things off with their annual Christmas Assembly — a full evening of ent ertainment and holiday festivides. The " Little Red Oil Can, " traditionally presented to the most outstanding person on the Ag Campus, was awarded to Leigh H. Harden, assistant to Dean Henry Schmitz of the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Home Economics. Hundreds of students thronged the main lounge of the Union to sing traditional Christmas music. During final week, the Senate Committee on Student Affairs, after long deliberation, decided Pase 20 College students. The building with the tower (left) is Eddy Hall, home of the testing bureau. The School of Social Work is located in Jones Hall (center). At the right, in Folwell Hall, can be found most of the departments of the College of SLA. that circulation of all materials through the post- office would be determined in the future by the Student Activities Bureau. Winter Quarter Begins On January 4, winter quarter began and stu- dents, many of whom had been shaken to the core by their marks, were seen to be resolutely bent upon doing more studying this term. The languor induced by the beautiful fall weather and the full schedule of extra-curricular activi- ties had diverted more than one mind from the stern routine of academic endeavor. But as new and more interesting activities flowered, scholas- tic achievement gave way to the easy convivial- ity of campus life. The Newman Club, religious foundation for Catholic students, became active again after a five-year lull. Newman Hall, adjacent to the campus, was decorated and reopened for the use of all Catholic students. Veterans Resent Non-Resident Fees In response to charges that several veterans had withdrawn from the University in protest against payment of non-resident tuition fees. President Coffey issued a statement setting forth the a dministration ' s point of view in the matter. Mr. Coffey said that the University was follow- ing the policy of approving non-resident fees in the same manner all other state and municipal universities had done. This policy had been ruled Page 2!

It ' s mainly just a fine place to lounge. Page 22 fair and reasonable by the Veterans Administra- tion, and, he further stated, an " onerous double taxation " burden upon the citizens of the state was inevitable unless the system continued in force. In order that publication of the Technolog might continue and in an effort to induce stu- dents to join its staff, the Technolog Board voted to begin a policy of paying the staff members for the first time in its 2 5 -year history. Mayo Memorial Plans Laid Materially adding to the grandeur and beauty of the campus will be the proposed Center of Research Building which the founders commit- tee of the Mavo Memorial will erect in honor of Doctors Charles and William Mayo. It will be located in the center of the University Hospital quadrangle with wings connecting the center memorial building to the out-patient department to the west, the Elliot Hospital to the south, and a future addition to the hospital group to the east. Private and public donations were solicited by the committee to finance the two million dol- lar structure. Reflecting the decrease in war tension on the campus, the first Comstock-Sanford formal dance since 1941 was held. The annual Navy Ball, sponsored by Anchor and Chain, was at- tended by approximately 300 couples. Wage Problems Solved Temporarily Students planning an unscheduled respite from classes were disappointed as it became apparent that there would be no strike of building service employees following the end of the thirty-day CAME THE CIGARETTE SHORTAGE, and new lines began to form. This campus drug store required an empty package from the purchaser and claimed that it made cigarettes last longer. Many students fell casually into line without knowing what they waited for.

A wage and hour settlement was pronounced ac- ceptable bv the Union following an investigation of University-Union labor trouble bv a five-man committee of the Minnesota House of Repre- sentatives. Two University requests for appropriations totahng $10,872,000 were presented to the State Legislature; in addition to this, a request for a $1,000,000 appropriation contingent upon the raising of a similar amount by gift and public subscription was requested for the iMavo Me- morial. Of the two bills placed before the Senate, $4,546,000 was designated for new buildings, additions, and completion of other projects. The remainder, $6,326,000, was to be used for main- tenance and special equipment. Appropriations were also made for the followii g buildings: Col- lege of Education, Ag Campus Library, Animal and Poultrv ' Husbandry, Chemical Engineering, heating plant. Home Economics, Physics, and Veterinary Medicine. Page 24 ■ rjjtikMM: " m: ' jr ± i;r: men was more spectacular than usual — complete with rockets shot into the air. Despite the war and mediocre Minnesota teams, the foot- ball games have continued to attract capacity crowds throughout the season. The Winter Holiday program was held Janu- ary 27. Events, which began with a bean feed, included exhibits, field contests. Union open house, a sleigh ride, a torchlight parade, and the Winter Whirl dance. Lyla Mary Worden was crowned queen of the Holiday at the dance. Arts Classes Dismissed Early A notable change in the curriculum was begun as the Arts Intermediary Board voted to suggest that two extra days be given students for study at the end of each quarter prior to final exams. This was subsequently approved by the faculty committee. The " Dome, " University Observatory located atop the Physics Building, was closed to the gen- eral public following a week of brisk business. Many persons came to look at the planet Venus which had been glowing with more than its ac- customed brilliance. The observatory was re- served exclusively for classes. MALCOLM M.

M I H I Post-War Plans WHILE THE UNIVERSITV continued on its full wartime schedule, the University planners were lookins ahead to the post-war era. Here are plans for four of the future buildings: upper left, Mayo Memorial; top center, the new Theatre; upper right. Men ' s Dormitory; and, bot- tom, Mechanical-Aeronautical Engineering Building. It must be stressed Page 26 TTTTTn ' !.{ Kit— » ' i;{irti 4 if, -9 that these buildings are still In the planning stage, and the finished products will not necessarily look like these drawings. The much- discussed Mayo Mennorial will be twelve stories and cost $2,000,000. The Theatre Building will be equipped with two separate theatres, one of which will have a revolving stage and will be a great improvement over the Music Building which it may replace. The Men ' s Dormitory will help to relieve the housing shortage. The proposed Mechanical- Aeronautical Engineering Building, to be attached to the Main Engi- neering Building, will take care of the expected increase in Aeronau- tical Engineering students. P age 27 COMMANDING OFFICERS of the campus Army and Navy, Colonel Harry L. King and Captain John W. Gates, discuss problems of the armed forces. Captain Gates was replaced by Captain J. W. Tuthill during the year. THE STAR of " Porgy and Bess, " Etta Moten, came to the University to sell war bonds during the Sixth War Loan Drive. Union Rations Cigarettes A plan to cope with the cigarette shortage was announced by the Union Board. It consisted of a rationing system whereby each person was sold three cigarettes for three cents; thus continuous sale with more far-reaching effects was assured to fag-famished addicts. The University administration presented a resolution to the Minneapolis City Council post- war progress committee opposing reconstruction of the Washington Avenue bridge at its present site, and urging that the bridge be rebuilt south of its present location. The Board of Regents pointed out that rebuilding of the bridge at its present site would prevent completion of the unified group building plan; that new and dan- gerous traffic conditions would result; and that increased noise and vibration would hamper re- search workers in their use of delicate instru- ments. In January the Panhcllcnic Council voted to hold formal rush week before Freshman Week next fall instead of after the beginning of fall quarter as it has been done in the past. Page 28 Housmg Conditions Exposed Campus political parties became active again as the Progressive Party released a blast at Uni- versity housing conditions. They charged that students were forced to live in crowded, unsani- tary, and insufficiently lighted rooming houses. The exposure in the Daily was taken up by Min- neapolis and St. Paul papers, and the Dean of Students office promised an investigation. Most of the campaigning of both Commonwealth and Progressive Parties centered around the housing issue. In the meantime, a joint committee of the YWCA and YMCA was working to form a Rooming House Council which would organize the various houses into one group and bring more of these students into campus activity.

Union Dances E?id Earlier In conipHance with the WPB order prohibit- ing dancing after midnight, the Union Board of Governors decided that the Saturday Night Dances should end at 1 1:45 p.m. Much commotion was caused by a drive to prohibit the sale of 3.2 beer in the Second Ward (in which the University is located) which was backed by various religious organizations and church groups. A ballot was advertised in the Daily to determine how students felt about the sale of beer, but declared illegal bv the Senate Committee on Student Affairs. The next day the City Council approved 38 beer licenses in the Second Ward. Election Day for the All-U Council, Union Board, Board of Pubhcations, and Intermediary Boards was set for April 13. Campaigning began late in March, but became more heated as Elec- tion Day drew near. Stasseji Speaks at Northrop Commander Harold E. Stassen spoke at North- rop Auditorium after a dinner in his honor in the Union on March 7. In his first speech on international affairs since he entered the Navy two years ago, the former governor outlined seven steps toward world peace which he pledged to support at the San Francisco confer- ence April 25. Members of the Veterans Club were active in opposing a bill before the State Legislature to erect an office building on the capitol grounds as SOLEMN, SERIOUS, AND FEMALE are the faces of graduating seniors of the Class of 1945. V- .• i-i a war memorial. They lobbied and appeared be- fore the Legislature, proposing that the memorial be in the form of housing facilities for the Uni- versity or facilities for a veterans hospital and medical research center. They also suggested that the Legislature wait till the war was over before thev made plans for the memorial. Whiter Sports Seasons Close Winter sports ended their seasons with vary- ing results. The basketball team finished up rather poorly with eight wins and thirteen losses. The hockey team, however, had a terrific season, winning seven games, losing two, and tying one. The swimmers completed their season with four wins and two losses; and the wrestling team came through with three wins, two ties, and one loss. This review of the events of the year indi- cates that Minnesota students, faculty, and ad- ministration are looking to the future. They en- deavored to solve some of the problems in 1945 which might become real issues after the war. In the fields of curriculum and activities, the group at Leaders ' Camp brought out the major problems and stated in a resolution how they felt about them. The housing inadequacy was no- ticed particularly at the first of the year, publi- cized greatly later on, and attempts to improve conditions finally came. The University admin- istration ' s fight with labor during the strike crisis was settled temporarily. Post-war plans for en- larging the campus were already underway. And the Veterans Club action on the Memorial Bill clarified the attitude of those returning from service. Let ' s hope we continue to look ahead!

Green, first dean of forestry in 1910, ever dream that a building like Green Hall would bear his name. Here forestry students are shown studying in the small but complete departmental library in the building. Since the Ag Campus library is overcrowded, many departments have set up their own specialized libraries to re- lieve the situation. Dept. of Agriculture Students on Ag claimed that their campus was a much more home-like and friendly place than Main Campus. Being smaller and more compact they all knew each other. Renowned for experimental work throughout the State, the Department of Agriculture ' s fame recently achieved international heights. Citizens of the state were familiar with signs labeling plots of ground as University experiments. One of the de- partment ' s most important functions was to help Minnesota farmers get the most from their land with the least amount of effort. Farmers appreciated this service, and dropped in occasionally to discuss their problems. Included in the Department of Agriculture were many divisions and sub-divisions. The Ag Campus consisted of a closely knit but extensive system of courses which terminated in a variety of degrees. The College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Home Economics had a broad curricular field DEAN BAILEY is leaving after a hard day at the office. Dean and Director, and professor of agricultural biochemistry, Clyde H. Bailey keeps up the high standards of the farm. which had been modified from time to time to ad- just to changes in agriculture. A science specializa- tion course trained students for research, agricul- tural instruction, and industry. A food technology course provided training in industrial fields such as meat packing, processing, storage, distribution of Page 39 fruits and vegetables, canning, and packing. In- struction in wildlife management included artificial propagation of game and fur species and manage- ment of non-game species. The Agricultural Experimental Station was the research unit for agriculture, forestry and home economics. The Experiment Station was made up of thirteen divisions at University Farm and seven branch experiment stations located at Waseca, Mor- ris, Crookston, Grand Rapids, Duluth, Cloquet, and Excelsior. All research in the Experiment Station was organized into research projects of which there were about 250 at any given time. Research was roughly classified as either applied or fundamental. Applied research was directed to- ward an immediate solution of a particular problem, utilizing the main basic information already known or easily obtainable. Fundamental studies were de- signed to ferret out basic principles underlying the problem. It was on these basic researches that the application to a particular problem must rest. Often the most direct approach to a particu lar problem was through fundamental research. Some examples of accomplishments may be given in illustration of research accomplishments. As one of these may be cited the accomplishments in plant breeding. Varieties of grain and corn hybrids were THE LITTLE RED OIL CAN, awarded each year to the person who has contributed the most to the Ag Campus, is presented by Dean Henry Schmitz to Leigh Harden, assistant to the dean.

These new varieties owed their success in no small part to years of painstaking research into fundamental laws of inheritance of both the crop variety and the nature of resistance to the diseases to which they were subject. The Latham raspberry, produced by this Experi- mental Station, was grown more widely than any other variety in the United States. More than 60 varieties of fruits and vegetables were developed by the Experimental Station and distributed for grow- ing to the people of the State. A new method of breeding swine based on genet- ic principles and utilizing relatively close inbreed- ing was developed and tested.

The School of Agriculture was a non-degree school to train boys and girls to work on farms. They spent six months a year for three years at the School. The other six months were spent on their own farms. This was one of the few schools of its kind in the country and enjoyed great popularity. School of Bus. Admin. There was a pleasant surprise awaiting anyone who ventured through the door marked DEAN in Vincent Hall. Instead of the proverbial dean, one was greeted by a smiling man who looked as if he not only had the time but would even like to chat with a student. This was Richard L. Kozelka, acting dean of the School of Business Administration. In Page 42 AFTER SERVING as the Aciins Dean for part of the year, Richard Kozelka was made full Dean of the Business School in March.

Just look, not ONE of those students is looking out of the window! spite of the appearance he was one of the busiest men on campus. Besides being on the Northwestern Research committee, he and Professor Roland S. Vaile worked on a detailed post-war planning pro- gram. The University co-operated with business men in conducting post-war surveys, mainly by the use of questionnaires and the personal interview meth- od. The purpose of this post-war planning was to stimulate business men of the state to an awareness of the problems they will face at the end of the war. The " Albert Lea Plan " and the " Red Wing Proj- ect " were two examples of the type of work be- ing done. Working in co-operation with the Red Wing Chamber of Commerce, a survey was made of purchasing power in the community, anticipated post-war purchases of consumer goods, measure- ments of the labor force, and the economic oppor- tunity for full employment of the labor force. Surveys similar to these two were carried on in several of the large cities in Minnesota. Although the University has no official role, the Northwest- ern Research committee requested Mr. Kozelka to make state wide summaries and asked the Univer- sity to summarize the results in a series of commu- nity studies of the entire state.

Thus it was that the School of Business Ad- ministration was doing its utmost to assist the busi- ness men to reconvert their industries for the most efficiency in the post-war world. The information that has been gathered concerning wartime produc- tion will be of significance in the future and may serve the purpose of solving many conversion prob- lems. School of Dentistry Those who admired a strong antiseptic odor and had a slight passion for drills went into dentistry. The School of Dentistry, located in the Medical Sciences Building, offered its students opportunities in all branches of dental work. It operated on an accelerated plan of dental education whereby stu- dents were required to attend school during sum- mer quarter. As a result, dentistry students were able to complete a four-year course in three calen- dar years. Until September, 1944, the Army assigned men from active duty to dental schools for training, but when the ASTP was discontinued, students in the dentistry program who desired to do so were granted deferments by their Selective Service Boards to enable them to proceed with their dental education. The quota of Navy V- 1 2 students con- tinued in its original status — the boys were given their education and maintenance through the Navy program. The course in dentistry was open to anyone — man or woman — who had completed the prerequi- sites, which consisted of a two-year course in the College of Science, Literature, and the Arts. Teach- ing in the School was closely integrated with the medical science laboratories and. the clinical and hospital facilities of the Medical School. The Aiedical Sciences Building boasted of some of the most modern equipment for the teaching of dentistry that has been developed. A highly special- A MINUTE TO SPARE, Dean William F. Lasby checks up on the new- est development in dentistry. His extensive library was a fine retreat from the many duties that befall deans. ized teaching staff, headed by Dean William F. Lasby, was maintained in both the medical science subjects and in dentistry. Instruction was given by lectures, laboratory courses, demonstrations, and clinical practice in the infirmary. Enrollment in the School dropped considerably this year because of the war, and some of the former Army students sought training elsewhere when the ASTP collapsed. At the beginning of fall quarter the School was made up of 28 per cent Navy men and 72 per cent civilians. Most of the civilian graduates of the School ' entered the Army or Navy Dental Corps upon graduation. Post-graduate courses were offered to men al- ready in practice who returned to the school for further training. The minimum training was one Page 44 full day a week for two college years. In this course, regular seminars and conferences were given. Men were given short advanced courses be- fore they attempted work in the infirmary. This year approximately 90 students in ortho- dontia, working in the dental infirmary, gave treat- ment to 350 children between the ages of six and sixteen. Students have observed these cases for about three years. The historical data gathered from these cases were used for statistical research in the study of specific problems in metallurgy, mechanics, and biological research. This year one of the major problems studied was root resorption under me- chanical strain in the treatment of malocclusions. This division of research in orthodontia was di- rected by a combination committee composed of medical and dental men and biologists. Under their IN THERE PICKING is Carl O. Flagstad, professor of dentistry, as he examines the nnouth of a prospective patient. All mouths have a thor- ough examination before dental work is done. supervision any department of the University be- came available for the teaching of subjects pertain- ing to orthodontia. The School of Dentistry also offered from time to time a series of courses in crown and bridge work, denture prothesis, operative dentistry, oral diagnosis, oral surgery, peridontia, and other similar subjects. Clinical courses in restorative dentistry were also given during the school year. These courses were open to practicing dentists. Page 45 Internships were available to graduates of the School of Dentistry in the School itself, in the Army and Navy, and in several other hospitals and health institutions throughout the country. Recom- mendations for these positions were passed on by the faculty committee. After graduation dental students who received commissions in the Dental Corps of the Army and Navy were assigned to active duty. Upon comple- tion of the usual period of training in camp, they were ordered to do dental service in the Army and Navy throughout the areas where the war was be- ing waged. The prospects regarding freshman students next year looked rather bad to the School. Judging from what had happened in the preceding few years it seemed that the classes would decrease until the war is over. Immediately after the war is over, the School expects an increase in the number of stu- dents registered in dental school. Regularly en- rolled students, veterans returning from service, and graduate dentists returning from service in the Dental Corps of the Army or Navy will want a variety of courses. Veterans will want to take up where they left off and the dentists in service will want to refresh themselves in dental practice pro- cedures before re-opening their offices. Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national honorary dental fraternity, was represented on the campus by the Beta Beta chapter. Twelve per cent of the stu- dents were elected to membership in their senior year by the faculty. DR. LEE MARKER reveals the mysteries of the teeth to potential dentists. Adrian Sorenson, Jacic Sewell, James Seifert, and Irving Schloner look as though they think those teeth might bite! PROFESSOR GEORGE DAMON talks to a class of dents on some topic concerning gold inlays in bicuspids, or maybe the removal of an impacted wisdom tooth. A course for dental hygienists was also offered by the School of Dentistry. The course, which has been accelerated because of the war and the great- er demand for hygienists, required two years of 3 3 weeks each instead of the usual four-year training period. These students were trained for assisting in den- tal offices, industries, public schools, and hospitals. Dental hygienists had to be versatile in both scien- tific and cultural subjects. The laboratories and equipment used by dental students were at their disposal, and cooperation between future dentists and their assistants began early. Two senior members of the faculty will be re- tired at the end of this year. Dean W. F. Lasby, who has been the School ' s guiding light, and Pro- fessor A. S. Wells, one of the favorites among the students, both will refinquish their positions. Several members of the faculty of the School served in the Army and Navy. Lyle A. Brecht is a captain in the Army Dental Corps. Henry E. Colby served in the Navy as lieutenant senior grade. Earl W. Nelson held the top position among the faculty members, being a lieutenant colonel in the DENTAL HyGENISTS are learning the preparation, care, and treat- ment of casts.

College of Education Did you ever wonder why the College of Edu- cation resided so smugly in Burton Hall?

Many students who had three years of training were given permits to teach until the situation is relieved. The College ' s dean, Wesley E. Peik, had many years of educational experience and outstanding achievements to his credit. He worked on several national surveys of institutions , and continually engaged in campus educational activities and state surveys of educational institutions. iMarcia Edwards, assistant dean, was another ac- tive person on campus. She worked with student co-ordinating activities, and was very interested in YWCA work. The College ' s staff also attended nation-wide conferences and conducted national surveys. A new addition to the faculty was John Rood, an internationally known sculptor. He displayed only his statues in wood, but did work in other ma- terials for his own pleasure. One of his theories was that all cultural fields were related, and besides his sculpturing, he has written a novel and composed several musical selections.

By educating large numbers of men and women for the teaching profession and by conducting sur- veys of educational institutions, the College of Edu- cation made contributions to the University and the community as a whole. The Institute of Child Welfare was estab- lished to serve four separate functions. The most important of these was that of teacher training. Graduates and undergraduates were given a four- year course in child training which included three quarters of practice training in nurseries and out- side schools. Next to teacher training was the parent-educa- tion division, in which counseling and teaching courses were offered to parents. A board of lec- tures served to give advice to parent groups all over Minneapolis. Another important function was that of research in child development. Almost all the graphs and books seen around clinics or offices telling " what- to-do-with " or " what-to-feed " babies were ex- amples of what was published. Page 49 SUPERVISING THE PLAV of nursery school children, Nancy McCabe Leib holds the door of a toy shed In the nursery yard while the children put their toys away. The division of childhood education was de- signed to give pre-school education to children from two to five years of age. Undergraduates re- ceived experience in story telling, plastics, and clay modeling through this function. This day nurser ' served as a blessing to working mothers and a good training center for both students and children. Inst, of Technology And many went into IT — despite great rumors floating about campus as to the character of en- gineers! Under Dean Samuel C. Lind, the Institute of Technology included the School of Chemistry, the College of Engineering and Architecture, and the School of Mines and iMetallurgy. During winter quarter a new curriculum was added to the Institute — a two-year terminal course of pre-professional training for technical aids. Stu- dents were trained for such jobs as draftsmen, ana- lysts, and management work, and at the end of six quarters, a certificate was awarded to students com- pleting the course. x lthough designed especially for veterans, it was open to anyone. OPERATING THE MACHINES in a shop course are Bill Reiser, James Wolff, and Howard Lennire. In spite of a decreased number of stu- dents, this year, the machine shop lab has almost returned to normal. Since the equipment is no longer needed for special war production, the machines were once again put to good use by the students in the classes. Page 50 Single war training courses were offered to the general public under the Engineering Science Man- agement War Training. These dealt with subjects useful for practical work in war plants, and some forty different ones were offered. Several thousand people took these courses with tuition paid by the government. Enrollment decreased greatly in the ESiM VT courses this year due to the fact that most potential workers were employed in industry. Students in the Institute published their own magazine, the Technolog. It was written by tech- nology students and overseen by a faculty board. The College of Engineering and Architec- ture was subdivided into eight classifications. A student could major in electrical, chemical, aero- nautical, architectural, civil, mechanical, agricul- tural, or pre-business engineering. However, IT students spoke of the three largest classifications — chemical, electrical, and aeronautical. Enrollments in these fields gradually decreased up the class scale. Of course, emphasis was placed on wartime proj- ects this year, as it has been for the last four years. The college worked on problems facing the armed forces, trained Army and Navy students, and ac- celerated their courses so some were able to gradu- SAMUEL C.

At the end of this summer the college completed the cycle of acceleration. A beginning class will start next fall for the first time in three years. The faculty took great pains to iron out the problems of the engineering students. They have found that, for their cases, the faculty-alumni rela- tionship was more important than a student-faculty intermediary board. The reason was that the stu- dent in such a technical field had no idea of what was the best course for him. But the graduate out using the information he got in school was better able to judge the more valuable courses. Plans were being laid for a five-year course after the war which would require students to take one year of pre-engineering. This was a scheme to eliminate " uncultured " engineers. Statistics, how- ever, showed that engineers were better informed in the arts than arts students were in the sciences. So perhaps some of those accusations everyone heard were fallacies! Other statistics showed that the most important phase was mathematics. The School of Mines and Metallurgy, a divi- sion of the Institute, was established in 1891. It, too, participated in war training; and members of its staff took part in government research. T. L. Joseph, head of the School, was a member of the War Metallurgy committee. In this School the fields of geological engineer- ing, metallurgical mining, and petroleum engineer- ing were covered. The geological engineer dis- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR of drawing and descriptive geometry, Ivan Doseff explains a detail of geometrical design to a student in one of his classes in engineering. covers ore deposits; metallurgical engineers con- cern themselves with the conversion of ore to metals; mining engineers have charge of the actual ore production; and the petroleum engineer does just what the name implies — has charge of the find- ing and development of petroleum. The School of Chemistry was under the direc- tion of Administrative Assistant Lloyd H. Reyer- son. There were five divisions within the School: inorganic, which gave the foundation for all other types of chemistry; analytical, which studied the quahtative and quantitative composition of sub- stances; organic, which developed in this country in the last thirty years (previous to that time all organic chemistry was German); physical, which had to do with the generalizations and theories of chemistry; and chemical engineering, which dealt PROFESSOR THOMAS L JOSEPH is the acting head of the School of Mines and Metallurgy.

Research on war projects was being carried out by the School of Chemistry on a rather extensive scale. There was some " big research on synthetic rubber " according to L. H. Reyerson, but the details could not be disclosed. Other projects in- cluded two in the division of physical chemistry. These were undertaken under the National Defense Research committee, a branch of another agency, the Office of Scientific Research and Development. Page 52 Five members of the staff, had research projects: R. S. Livingston, T. I. Taylor, G. H. Montillon, A. Madden, and E. J. Aieehan. The School also trained some servicemen under Army and Navy programs. Robert S. Livingston was on a leave for a physical chemistry research project near Wash- ington, D. C. T. Ivan Taylor directed war research at Columbia University and in Washington. G. H. Montillon did special research for the TVA at Knoxville, Tennessee. In addition to these men there are Professors W.

After the war the School planned to have a two- year course to train analysts for industrial posi- tions.

The college was a pioneer in the field of general edu- cation; its popularity continued to grow in spite of low wartime enrollment. After hitting a bottom enrollment of 300 last year, a tremendous increase to 550 students occurred t his year in the General College. Courses were carefully planned to help students adapt their educational and vocational plans to war- time conditions. The most popular courses this year were literature, human biology, physical science, psychology, human development, and a wartime refresher course in mathematics. The writing lab was the only one of its kind on campus. Another popular class was photography in which darkroom techniques in composition, developing, and taking pictures were taught in Murphy Hall ' s seventeen individual darkrooms. Nearby commercial photog- raphers hired students on the basis of their experi- ence in this class. Art courses under the direction of Mrs. Lucille Fisher had academic and practical ap- proaches. Metal work, poster painting, and wood sculpturing helped to acquaint students with many forms of art media. Post-war plans have been worked on for over a year to adjust the program to serve the needs of returning veterans and to provide terminal educa- tion at the college level. Terminal education con- sists of a complete college course in less than four years.

Justice was upheld by judge-professor Wilbur Cherry, and law seniors got some practical exper- ience in pleading three cases a piece while the jury of stern-faced first year students listened attentively, and weighed the evidence pro and con. .Meanwhile, as Minnesota ' s law students plugged away, graduates were ever distinguishing themselves as well as their school. Five of the seven members of the State Supreme Court were A innesota grad- uates: Julius J. Olson, Thomas Gallagher, Harry H. Peterson, T. O. Streissguth, and Chief Justice Charles Loring.

For Dean Everett Fraser, this marked his twenty- fourth year as head of the Minnesota Law School and the beginning of his term as president of the Association of Law Schools. Ninety-five law schools of high standing were members of this association. It was through Dean Eraser ' s determined efforts that the Law School secured an Intermediary Board and the honor system. Medical Sciences Another of the University ' s traveling deans, Dr. H. S. Diehl, dean of jMedical Sciences, commuted between Minneapolis and Washington, where he was chairman of the Committee on Allocation of Aledical Personnel. Besides this. Dr. Diehl was a member of the civilian training program, medical education, and Association of American Medical Colleges Preparedness committees. Dr. Diehl was proud of the distinguished visi- tors the University had this year, Major General Norman Kirk, surgeon general of the United States Army, and Admiral Ross T. Maclntyre, surgeon general of the United States Public Health Service. Page 55 MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIST Dorothy Bennett separates various types of hormones in a medical experiment representing fractional distillation in one of the University Hospital labs. However, he was even prouder of the fact that Minnesota was one of the first universities in the country to accelerate its program — even before the war began. The AIedical School had a total enrollment of 461 students this year. With three women in the senior class and 1 1 in the freshmen class, it seemed that women were at last working their way into the field of medicine. Most of the men who remained in civvies held commissions in the Army or Navy, but took advantage of the fact that they had a choice of being on active or inactive status. A deciding factor for many prospective interns to come to Minnesota was Dr. Owen H. A ' angen- steen. His work in intestinal surgery has often been called the greatest contribution to surgery of this generation. Since his invention of the intestinal sec- tion pump, deaths due to intestinal obstructions dropped from 60 per cent to less than 1 5 per cent. It has been used successfully on battlefields. Within the past year the Cancer Research Pro- gram, under the direction of Dr. John Bittner, was expanded into one of the most active research pro- grams in the country. Dr. Diehl explained that they PIPETTES AND TEST TUBES make a dramatic background for a typical scene in the main lab at the University Hospital.

In addition to this, the National Foundation for Infan- tile Paralysis granted the University of Minnesota Medical School $320,000 to be used for infantile paralysis research. A recent innovation in the Medical School was the development of an intensive program in the physical medicine field. War Medicine and Tropi- cal Medicine were added to the senior curriculum as a result of this new trend. Minnesota was the first school in America to offer a college course in Medical Technology, graduating the first student in 1923. The depart- ment of medical technology, headed by Dr. Gerald Evans, director, and Lucille Holland, instructor, graduated an average of 60 women in the last few years. Three different courses were offered in the de- partment of medical technology: a course in medi- cal technology, a course in X-ray technology, and a combined course in medical and X-ray technol- ogy. All students spent the first two years in the College of Science, Literature, and the Arts, with special emphasis on chemistry, zoology, and bac- teriology.

During their senior year, which consisted of twelve consecutive months, students worked as interns in the laboratories of the Univer- sity Hospitals and its affiliates. Medical technologists did laboratory work for doctors, assisting in various diagnostic procedures. Upon graduation, the " med tech " was qualified for a position requiring general or specialized labora- tory experience in a clinic, a physician ' s office, or a hospital laboratory. The Medical School faculty contributed sub- stantially to the war effort, with 107 members on leaves of absence while serving with the armed forces. These men were stationed in Italy Hospital No. 26; the thirty-first Station Hospital in New Caledonia; and in an Oak Ridge, Tennessee 700 bed hospital associated with a special War Department project. The School of Nursing admitted a larger-than- ever-bef ore class in September, 1 944, with 3 1 o new students enrolled. The total enrollment of 8,87 students in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps at the University of Minnesota January 1, 1945, made this the largest unit of the Corps in the country. Page 58 DIRECTOR of post-graduate medical education, Dr. William A. O ' Brien, is a giant in medical management, stature, and personality. He has emphasized points for future post-graduate medical courses to be held in the Center for Continuation Study . . . JUNIOR MEDICAL CLERKS, Anthony Ourada and Andreen Midthune, work feverishly on an experiment in the Medical School ' s laboratory. With the aid of funds from the Lanham Act, additional residence space was provided at the Charles T. Miller, Minneapolis General, and Uni- versity Hospitals to take care of the increased en- rollment in the School of Nursing. The first Work Shop for graduate nurses at the University of Minnesota was held in the summer, 1944. Miss Virginia Henderson from the Teachers College faculty at Columbia University was in charge of the program. While every other school was trying to establish better student-faculty relations through Intermedi- ary Boards, the School of Nursing had its students and faculty chatting over tea cups. The Faculty- Student Coffee Hour at the Union sponsored this event at the Campus Club on March 14. Celibacy among the nurses was on the down-fall. A larger proportion of student nurses than ever be- fore were marrying, either before entering the school or while enrolled. The members of the United States Cadet Nurse Corps who began the Senior Cadetship during the year were assigned to army hospitals, veterans facili- ties, rural hospitals, and ward administration in hos- pitals connected with the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. USE OF THE MICROSCOPE comes in often in the work of the med tech. These girls are taking turns looking at a blood smear of a person suspected of anemia. Page 59 STUDENT NURSE PHVLLIS DVORAK gets practice for the days when she, like hundreds of other student nurses, will be on regular hospital duty by charting essential observations of the day. Not to be left behind by the other schools the School of Nursing kept up-to-date by carrying on numerous projects of a research variety. In co- operation with the Bureau of Educational Research the School of Nursing faculty began work on a project for studying evaluation in Schools of Nurs- ing. A study of the selection of students for the School of Nursing, carried on jointly by the Stu- dents Counseling Bureau and the School of Nurs- ing, was continued through this year. The phase of this study dealing with personality inventories as tools in selection and guidance of student nurses was carried on with the assistance of clinical psy- chologists at the University Hospital and General Hospital. Miss Katharine J. Densford, the director of the School of Nursing, was elected president of the American Nurses Association in June, 1944. In this position Miss Densford participated in the national activities of the nursing groups directed toward meeting the demands of the war emergency. Miss Thelma Dodds, assistant professor of nurs- ing and superintendent of nurses at Charles T. Miller Hospital, was on leave of absence for one year to act as consultant in the Nurse Education Division of the United States Public Health Service. She was to return July i, 1945. Miss Jean W. Taylor was on leave for part of the fall quarter to assist in the national recruitment of college students under the National Nursing Coun- cil for War Service. Major Cecelia Hauge, on leave from the faculty of the School of Nursing, was chief nurse of the continental advanced section of the medical section headquarters, French Coastal Command. The rapid growth and the acceleration of pro- grams was responsible for a variety of new problems for Aliss Densford. Lack of adequate housing facili- ties for the swelling ranks of student nurses made it necessary for additions to the Nurses ' homes at University, Miller, and General Hospitals to be con- structed. NECESSARY FIRST-HAND INSTRUCTION in patient care, a nurse ' s foremost duty, is given by Miss Kinutella to a student nurse training at the University Hospital. Also in this connection a more over-all system of counseling was inaugurated. The new position of student counselor for the School of Nursing, held by Phoebe Gordon, was a result of the defi- nite need for closer personal association between faculty and students. Through group and individual conferences, freshmen are aided in working out satisfactory program schedules. For five-year nurs- ing students careful coordination between the Col- lege of Science, Literature, and the Arts, and the School of Nursing in the pre-nursing period was very important. Each girl was assigned to an ad- visor from the hospital staff who remained in close contact with her until she graduated. Opportunities for nurses have expanded. The University trained graduate nurses in special fields Page 60 of their profession such as public health work, child health and guidance, and instructorships in nursing schools. Positions as anaesthetists, X-ray, labora- tory technicians, or physiotherapists were new branches of the field for which the University de- veloped excellent technical programs of training. At the request of the Nurse Education Division of United States Public Health Service, two " Trainer " courses and one " Trainee " course were given for graduate nurses at the Continuation Cen- ter in the fall quarter. The purpose of the " Trainer " courses was to train nurses to qualify as instructors for special nurse training courses and " on the job " classes for head nurses, supervisors, and instructors in hospitals and schools of nursing; the " Trainee " course was to assist head nurses " on the job " to meet special demands made upon them. KATHARINE DENSFORD, director of the School of Nursing, finds tinne to look up and smile between tasks. Getting enough nurses to fill the quota and keeping the cadet nurses in line kept her busy. During 1944- 1945 the School of Nursing experi- mented with the integration of public health aspects of nursing in rural hospital experience as a substi- tute for six weeks ' public health experience for de- gree students majoring in public health nursing. Three new positions as public health coordina- tors were created on the School of Nursing faculty for the purpose of better integrating the social and public health aspects of nursing for those majoring in public health nursing. Page 61 Everyone worked hard and dreamt of the day when she would graduate and join the services. Oh, for the simple life of Paulette Goddard in " So Proudly We Hail! " The Board of Regents this year saw fit to estab- lish a new school to take the place of the former de- partment of preventive medicine and public health. No sooner was the School brought into existence than plans were begun for expanding it. A post-war building was planned to house the School which was expected to have a huge enrollment in the post- war period. The School of Public Health served the north central section of the United States and adjacent areas of Canada as a center for the training of medi- cal officers of health, public health engineers, pub- lic health nurses, health educators, and other public health personnel. During the past year students came from 25 states. Lieutenant Colonel Gaylord W. Anderson, di- rector of the School of Public Health, was on leave, serving as Director of the Division of Medical In- telligence in the Office of the Surgeon General of the Army. Dr. Haven Emerson, professor emeritus at Co- lumbia University, was in residence as a professorial lecturer during the winter and spring terms. Dr. Emerson had a long and distinguished career in public health work. He was awarded the Sedgwick IMemorial Medal in 1935. He was president of the American Public Health Association in 1934 and of ONE OF THE MANY LOVES of the Minneapolis General Hospital is Willie Witherspoon, who just sits back calmly and looks querulously into the eyes of his new nurse. the American Epidemiological Society in 1941. This year he was chairman of the American Public Health Association Committee on Local Health Services, and was the editor and author of many professional articles and books. This new school was developed in cooperation with the College of Education. A course for health educators, under the direction of Ruth Grout, assist- ant professor of public health and education, was offered this year. Last year 343 nurses received special public health training, a large number of whom were on stipends granted by the State Department of Health. Other nurses were at the University under the provisions of the Boulton-Bailey Act providing federal scholar- ships. Until the missing faculty returns. Dr. Ruth Boynton, acting director of the School of Pub- lic Health, planned to carry the School of Public Health through its embryological development. College of Pharmacy Sh!

WATCHING OVER all the activities in the Phar- macy Building was not a simple job, as Dean Charles H. Rogers well knew.

The phytochemical, pharmacognostical, pharma- cological, and other investigations in synthetic or- ganic therapeutic agents by the researchers enlarged tlie armantariuni of those engaged in the prevention and cure of diseases. (This is printed for the benefit of those pharmacy students who understand it! ) Minnesota ' s College of Pharmacy ranked among the leading colleges of its kind in the country. The faculty, with the aid of good equipment and an outstanding working library, was able to cooperate fully with the war effort. College of SLA And the rest of the students were in SLA. The College of Science, Literature, and the Arts covered a lot of territory, with about thirty departments directly under it and numerous others that were listed in the SLA bulletin but affiliated with other colleges. Even then there was no place for some courses that were offered so a new department was created to harbor these orphan courses. The department of general studies emerged from a feeling among fac- ulty members that a curriculum which prepared people to be better citizens was an important phase of education overlooked by SLA. To answer this DEAN OF SCIENCE, LITERATURE, AND THE ARTS, T. Raymond Mc- Connell came to the University in 1936 as chairman and director of the Committee on Educational Research . . . J. M. THOMAS, assistant dean of SLA in charge of senior college, is finishing his thirty-sixth year here and will retire July I, 1945. William H. Bussey is another SLA assistant dean, in charge of junior college. Page 63 ARTS INTERMEDIARY BOARD MEMBERS, Joan Clark, Dean Johnson, Sally Rumble, Mary K.

Hu- manities alone delved into the fields of history, phi- losophy, literature, and fine arts. These ere all inter-departmental courses which had no depart- ment up to that time. Research was done on the problem of building a curriculum for the superior students who anted a general education. This work was handled pri- marily by the Arts College Committee of General Education, which consisted of Professors J. W. Buchta, Tremaine McDowell, Evron Kirkpatrick, Raymond W. Brink, Alburey Castell, Ernst C. Abbe, and Donald G. Paterson. The group served as a nucleus for many sub-committees working on problems such as what the prerequisites for humani- ties should be and what should be included in a gen- eral education. Under Edward H. Sirich, professor of romance languages, and Hubert G. Meessen, assistant profes- sor of German, the language and area Army stu- dents learned by a new method. They spent more time in classes speaking the language and had less emphasis placed on grammar and reading.

World War II made faculty and students alike aware of their inadequate knowledge of our civili- zation in these times. As an outgrowth of the ASTP foreign language and area program, a new course was set up by Harold S. Quigley, professor of po- litical science, on the environment, peoples, and cul- tures of the Far East. This year the Arts Intermediary Board was set up to conduct studies and discussions of curricular mat- ters, teaching practices, and student-faculty rela- tions. They brought their suggestions to an advisory committee or the faculty. The School of Social Work underwent many changes as new fields opened up. There was a cry- ing need for social workers in personnel counseling, housing management, and social insurance adminis- tration. A loud call came from the various war agencies: Red Cross, USO, Army, and Navy. The armed forces suddenly discovered social workers and began asking for people trained in the fields of medical social work and psychiatric social work. iMany workers were summoned by public welfare agencies.

The American Board of Psychi- atric Social Workers acclaimed the University of Minnesota an accredited school in this specialty. The School of Journalism was not to be out- done by progressive movements in the other schools. A research division was established with Professor Ralph O. Nafziger as director and Ralph D. Casey, director of the School of Journalism, as chairman of the advisory committee of the division. The pur- pose of this division was to stimulate and conduct fundamental and applied research in the field of communication and communication agencies, to secure grants for research, and to encourage promis- ing research workers to come to the University for advanced graduate training. University College " . . . and now I ' m in University College! " was the beautiful ending to a long hard luck story. Al- though no change was made in the requirements for entrance into University College, this year more students than ever before applied.

In this college they could take courses in any college of the University, making up their programs with the advice and approval of the University College committee. The committee was headed by Dr. J. W. Buchta. When a student completed the approved curric- ulum he received a degree of bachelor of arts or bachelor of science. This procedure allowed him to obtain a degree although he did work in several different colleges. Most of the new recruits for University College this year were veterans returning to college or regu- lar students preparing for special war work. The eager, academic maladjusted, and some normal people, too, found this college the answer to their diploma dreams. Graduate School The Graduate School harbored those who were reluctant to leave college and go out into the cold, cruel world. Students came from all corners of the globe to take advantage of the graduate opportuni- ties here. The most popular fields for foreign stu- dents were medicine and agriculture. The School was divided into seven departments, each headed by a faculty committee: agricultural GRADUATE STUDENTS enjoy one of the first attempts at socializing and integrating students above the four-year college level. Mary Horan worked hard planning and putting on the party, which was held in the Union. A large number of the graduate students attended the affair, proving that even they break away from their books occasionally for a get-together. Page 67 science, biological science, languages and literature, medical science, physical science, social science, and one other department which included educa- tion, child welfare, philosophy, psychology, speech pathology, and music. Special Departments Included under the heading of special departments are the Summer Session, Extension Division, and the Center for Continuation Study, which are impor- tant parts of the University. Summer Session was for those who didn ' t know when to stop. The 1 944 session wasn ' t very different from the regular " fws " schedule. With women stu- dents predominating again, regular faculty members taught four thousand students their advanced ABC ' s. Convocation came every Thursday, and all of the Union facilities were open. The greatest difference between the regular ses- sions and summer session was that it was hot! Then, too, finals came much sooner than anyone expected. But students weathered the heat quite well by escaping into the air-conditioned " Varsity. " Unique to summer school were the refresher courses for teachers. They learned in six weeks LABORATORY WORK Is a " must " in the curricula of most graduate students. Darrel Harris, Ruth Goodhope, and Beth Kay Fields do some lab work before returning to write their theses. enough to teach courses which they had had no experience in for years.

The future of Summer Session seems certain, as there will be veterans wanting to complete their edu- cation quickly, medical and dentistry programs will probably continue on the accelerated basis, teachers will want summer courses, and there are always stu- dents who need a few credits. The Extension Division took in several new departments that needed a shelter for the duration. The Key Center for War Information provided in- formation for the public through what they called " Reading for Wartime, " a monthly digest of im- portant war literature. They also sponsored the WLB program, " The World We Want, " which presented professors and their dreams for the future. They kept the War Information Room at the library supplied with interesting literature from Washington. These publications were distributed throughout the state. The Center for Continuation Study per- formed most of its work by holding short courses in highly specialized subjects for carefully selected professional or vocational groups. The courses usually lasted about one week, starting Monday morning and ending at noon on Saturday. If a course required more than a month it was not of- fered in the regular school. Educational courses were most popular, with medical courses hitting a close second. A STAR GAZING CLASS offered in night school gave working people and regular students especially interested a chance to observe the wonders of the heavens, and learn a little astronomy on the side . . .

Administrators Hardly a newcomer to Room 1 05 Administration was True E. Pettengill, who for three years has held the two-fold position of recorder and acting direc- tor of Admissions and Records. Recently Mr. Pet- tengill ' s main job had been interviewing returning G.I. ' s in order that they might receive credits due them from military training. This and the increased number of women students kept him busy, but he still found time to take part in Campus Club activ- ities. " Jack of all administrative positions " was Laur- ence R. Lunden. He was executive secretary of the Board of Regents, Comptroller of the Univer- sity, and held the academic rank of associate profes- sor. Under his direct supervision were accounting, field ordering, purchasing, investments, and inven- tory departments. Mr. Lunden also staged an an- nual bankers ' convention at the extension study division during the year. This project attracted men from all over the Northwest to the University.

As graduates and faculty members gathered on the knoll to begin the procession towards Northrop, the traditional mist appeared over- head, but other than that, the weather was perfect. The color guard proceeded all the academic big-wigs, marching in time with the Band on its heels. The Senior Cabinet and Cap and Gown Council presidents headed up the class which marched in order of the found- ing of each college — SLA students taking the front seats. During the Cauldron ceremony, sponsored by the Minnesota Foundation, $206 was col- lected from the seniors as they m arched into the auditorium. This money was divided be- tween the senior class and the Foundation. During the ceremony, Bob Carlson pre- sented the class to President Coffey, who in turn announced awards of the year. Following this, AWS put on a luncheon at which new Mortar Board members were pre- sented to the public. Later in the afternoon, President Coffey gave a reception for the seniors in the Union. GRADUATING SENIORS file by the cauldron (a larse pot as in MacBeth) and drop their pennies, thus contributing to the general welfare of the class and the University as a whole. A DESSERT LUNCHEON was sponsored by AWS on Cap and Gown Day for senior girls and their friends. At this event, honors were mentioned and new Mortar Board members were announced to the public.

We weren ' t so sure when we first came to college — we thought we needed a yellow and purple convertible, a five-figure bank balance, and closets of flashy clothes to belong to a Greek organization. Not so, however. We found that we didn ' t need 100 kopeks a month. More than that, we found the values of fraternity life, in supplement to ordinary curricular study. Wandering down sorority row last fall, we saw flocks of trim shapes come charging out of their respective houses to welcome new pledges with shrieks of joy. And fraternities looked more normal again as the brothers moved back into the houses relinquished by the Navy. Fraternities resumed activities. Sororities approved of that. On the pages to follow, you ' ll find a recounting of Greek affairs. Page 108 BACK ROW: Landb erg, Wing, Doeringsfeld, Chernausek, Jensen, W. Dreher. THIRD ROW: Anderson, Wold, Powell, E.

Lcacia 1206 Fifth Street Southeast University of Michigan, 1904 Minnesota, 1906 Acacias always did like the location of their house. For years they ' ve had a reputation for playing pranks on their neighbors, the Fifth street sororities, and it seemed that this year was no exception for them. The boys took time out from teasing the girls to lead a full social life and had two formal dances during fall quarter. The year ' s ac- tivities were climaxed by their annual canoe trip on the St. Croix River. In the last eighteen years, only one year has passed by that an Acacia hasn ' t be.en business manager of the Daily. This year the honored position went to El Dreher who worked so hard that he all but lived in the office in a courageous effort to balance the budget. Well known Acacias about campus were Johnny Dablow, past editor of the Gopher Log and master of ceremonies at the NROTC " Dream Drag " Dance, and Bill Peterson, chapter president who was also treasurer of the Board of Pub. In between activities and big parties, the Acacias managed to sandwich in quite a few picnics at which they usually sang, " Walk- in ' by the River. " In the local Acacia chapter this year were: Theodore Anderson, Evert Blom- berg, Dwight Chernausek, Tom Clareson, Gerald Compton, John Dablow, Arthur Davis, Karl Doeringsfeld, Eldridge Dreher, William Dreher, Jack Fox, Robert Fulton, James Jensen, RoUie Jorvig, Albert Jurgens, Curtis Landberg, William Peterson, Robert Powell, John Smith, Lauren Smith, Stanley Von Drashek, Bob Wilcoxen, Dodge Wing, and Clark Wold.

Alpha Chi Omega 514 Eleventh Avenue Southeast DePauw University, 1885 Minnesota Alpha Lambda, 1921 The Alpha Chi O ' s planned for themselves a well rounded pro- gram ranging from social events to chapter support of the national organization ' s War Nursery for children of defense workers. Na- tional Alpha Chi Omega sponsored two such nurseries. In addition to the customary winter formal, Alpha Chis threw an energetic barn dance, complete with agriculture, at Eaton ' s. Guests traveled to the party in moving vans. Notable on the campus were Ruth Svendsen, who served on the Board of Pub and was active in the University Flying Club, along with Norma Christenson; and Kate Worrell, who headed the War Chest last fall. The Pan-Hel banquet wheezed with mirth as Marge Chant did her Spike-like rendition of the chapter ' s favorite tune, " Cocktails for Two. " Active members of Alpha Chi Omcgj were: Corinne Abel, Karen Anderson, Cynthia Andrist, Marjory Arends, Vcrle Bakke, Donna Bartley, Dorothy Battin, June Bedford, Charlotte Boener, Olene Bolstad, Patricia Bonner, Marion Bran- don, Marion Caldwell, V itginia Caldwell, Margaret Chant, Mary Chickering, Jean Chrisler, Norma Christenson, Jean Cropsey, Mary Dixon, Alice Eisner, Al ice Estes, Marion Fischer, Helen Gonnella, Elizabeth Gould, Gloria Hagen, Ruth Henry, Ruth Holmquist, Jtiann Jaquith, Rosemary Jarvis, Lois Ann Johnson, Marilyn Johnson, Elinor Kroemer, Barbara Martin, Jean ' Maxwell, Audrey Mc- Culloch, Patricia Meier, Jean Muth, Norma Patrick, Mary Peterson, Mary Jane Rehder, Lorraine Selvog, Kathleen Stanwood, Louise Stocke, Margaret Strand- berg, Ruth Svendsen, Barbara Swanstrom, Lois Thompson, Barbara Van Duzee, Maxine Van Guilder, Angela Walsh, Helen Wangen, Beverly Williamson, Pa- tricia Wood, Kathryn Worrell, and Marilyn Zweigart.

Pase no Alpha Delta Phi 1725 University Avenue Southeast Harrtilton College, 1832 Minnesota, 1892 ' hen the Navy moved out, the Alpha Delts repossessed their house and got a taste of what spring housecleaning was Uke. To add to their oivn enjoyment, the boys invited sorority pledges over to give their walls and dusty corners the feminine touch. Then they claimed their house had atmosphere. Besides being bombarded by sorority cleaning women, the Al- pha Delt house had its share of date luncheons, pledge parties, and many other informal gatherings throughout the year. Men about campus from the Alpha Delt chapter were Looie Lick, ace pianist and also this year ' s national golf champion, Bob Rydholm of the All-U Council, and red-haired Chuck Bell, who presided over the Commonwealth Party. Wally Carpenter was vice president of Foundation. Not to be different, the Alpha Delts had many members of the armed forces stationed on the Minnesota campus. Outstanding was Frank Sinatra ' s rival, medic Bob Maxeiner, whose singing made coeds swoon at the Varsity Show. Alpha Delts discussed plain liv- ing and high thinking and harmonized on " Ain ' t Misbehavin ' .

Girls hke Feme Crispin of Mortar Board and AWS and Edna Marie Burrill of prac- tically everything helped to keep things lively. They also pointed to Gloria Dickson of the Daily advertising staff and Lois Benson, who worked heart and soul for the Liberal party. The ADPis held a formal fall quarter, and later on gave an old-fashioned barn dance complete with a professional caller shout- ing out steps for square dances. Candy was passed almost every Aionday night as a sudden splurge of engagements brought numerous diamonds to the house. The majority of the gals took lots of time out from studying, madly playing something called the " Penny Game " and shouting merrily about " Pennies From Heaven.

H L Page 112 Alpha Epsllon Phi 928 Fifth Street Southeast Barnard College, 1909 Minnesota Alpha lota, 1939 AEPhis accomplished much this year. On the serious side, they supported the national group ' s war relief program in England and aided in the national gift to the Red Cross of two ambulances. Carnival and raffle proceeds also went to the Red Cross. They studied too, and Jean Levy got the award for the highest average. On the fun side, AEPhis gamboled at their annual pledge dinner and dance. The initiation banquet was combined with a party at- tended by campus GI ' s. Initiation period itself found a pajama party in progress, featuring flying pillow feathers. Among the activity people were Prexy Swiler, Union Board member and Pan-Hel treasurer, Myra Mersky of the Arts Inter- mediary Board, Inette Cohen of the Fomm Board, and Connie Yager, the chairman of Pan-Hel Greek week. AEPhis saw the manless campus and sang, " Remember?

Their October open house drew throngs, but nothing like the Homecom- ing open-door policy featuring most of the Northwestern team. Biggest laugh came when Rosie Bergstrom and Pat McRoberts got lost on the way to sell Governor Thye a Homecoming button and wound up in the St. Paul Cathedral with a funeral in progress. Serious activities included bandage rolling, blood donating, and Minnesota Foundation work, and featured big guns like symmet- rical Dorothy Dugas of the Varsity show, Eleanor Rothenberger of the Union Cabinet, and Barb Sexton of the Senior Cabinet. Good Alpha Gams denied playing tricks on the Phi Delts, smirked slyly, and sang, " It Ain ' t Necessarily So!

Alpha Omicron PI 1121 Fifth Street Southeast Barnard College, 1897 Minnesota Tau, 1912 Despite frayed nerves because of campus shortages, the AOP!s invaded activities this year and did right well. Jeanne Crahan, as- sisted by Eleanor Frisch, took over Ski-U-A4ah ' s finances, while Alice Anderson and Betty Weissinger did some snooping and poetry for the magazine. Corinne Holt spent most of her time in the University Theatre with Jeanne Mitchell and Pat Ross — future Barrymores all. Also well known were Aiadeline Holt of the Spanish Club and WLB, and Charlotte Brokaw and Cecile Eckhoff of the YWCA Board. In addition to their activities, hardworking AOPis still found time for numerous open houses and parties. They did assorted war work too, and, in what was left of their time, they sat around in their mammoth house humming happily, " This Is the Life.

" Alpha Phi 323 Tenth Avenue Southeast Syracuse University, 1872 Minnesota Epsilon, 1890 When the man famine set in for the duration, the Alpha Phis turned to other activities and entered the War Bond Drive with a vengeance. After unloading some of their famous charm on the right people, they chalked up one-third of the campus quota. The Fees weren ' t out of the party habit, however, and so they entertained girls like the Pifis and the Thetas at coke clambakes this year. And, from all reports, the annual Fall Brawl was a stagger- ing success. Alpha Phis won the Intersorority volleyball title, and acquired a stuffed animal trophy for the house mantle. Good Fees boasted of BWOC ' s Donna Lou Anderson and Jean Northrop, the beauteous Briscoe of Board of Pub, and fifteen cute pledges. And they sat in their house and scornfully sang, " A Good A4an Is Hard to Find.

Alpha Xi Delta IMS Fifth Street Southeast Lombard College, 1893 Minnesota Mu, 1907 Famous on campus this year were Alpha Xi Deltas like Editor Gerry Sohle of the Daily, Eleanor Edwardson of the Minnesota Foundation, and Gloria Feickert of the University Theatre. The national project for Alpha Xi Delta was buying pianos for use overseas, so the Minnesota chapter saved pennies like mad to contribute. As a special project, the girls filled stockings with food and fruit for the St. Cloud Veterans ' Hospital at Christmas. Long remembered will be the reducing sessions which were held nightly in the upstairs hall. Seems the gals got the urge to take off a few pounds every now and then. Twelve Alpha Xi Deltas went to the Madison game and had themselves a whee of a time. The rest of the chapter concentrated their efforts on the spring formal which is an annual event. The gals spent the year having millions of open houses, at which a gay time was had by all, natch! In February they held one with a Gay Nineties theme — complete with a floor show, full costumes, and old songs. ' Tis said that the cast rehearsed for weeks until the whole chapter was singing, " Mademoiselle from Armentieres.

Beta Theta Pi 1625 University Avenue Southeast Miami University, 1839 Minnesota Beta Pi, 1889 Before reopening their house, the Betas held their meetings in the Union. The Navy moved out in time for them to hold their Homecoming party in the house, however, and when the kitchen opened February i, everything returned to normal and regular fraternity life was resumed. It wasn ' t quite a normal chapter, though, for the Betas had a large number of servicemen — five men in V-i 2, four in the ROTC, and several returned veterans going to school under the Army col- lege program for discharged veterans, making the Betas quite con- scious of the war. Heading the chapter this year were Bill Huskins, Frank Altman, Martin Croze, and Fred Adams. Most everybody on campus knew playboy John Mclntyre and dentist Dick Steiner. And Jack Ste- phens won ' t soon forget that shooting craps with the Dekes is a quick way to lose money. Beta parties carried on as usual this year, with the sleigh-ride winter quarter and the annual barn dance in February. So, with their house back and a large active chapter to fill it, the Betas again sat on their front porch humming, we ' re " On the Sunny Side of the Street. " Members were: P ' red Adams, Frank Altman, Robert Appel, Lvnn Augustine, John Barry, James Bureau, Martin Croze, Charles Cunningham, Edgar Derrig, Philip Hill, William Huskins, Justin James, Robert Jamison, Richard Jesperson, John W.

Page 118 Chi Omega 315 Tenth Avenue Southeast University of Arkansas, 1895 Minnesota Pi Beta, 1921 Anyone remembering this year will naturally remember the Chi O ' s ' cuz they were really loaded with BWOC ' s. President Betty Cudworth was also president of the Board of Pub. Ginny Kuck was vice-president of Pan-Hel, Marge Eustis served on the All-U Council, and Pam McCarthy was bigtime in the University Theatre. Gals like Schaffer, Robertson, Duenbostle, and Thorp got in on everything. Always in line for a party, the Chi O ' s had a big gathering out at Eaton ' s. They had planned to go riding, but it seems that they had such a good time that they never got to the horses. For excitement around the house, the Chi O ' s all gathered in their living room and thought of fraternity row while they sang " Street of Dreams.

Chi Psis BMOC was God ' s gift to the women, Dick Murphy, of the two convertible fame. (Funny, he kept saying one was his brother ' s!) On the athletic side, the Chi Psis bragged about Bob Carley of the hockey, football, and golf teams. Those admitted into the lodge ' s inner sanctum up on third floor saw, (if the view was not too obstructed by Lyle Gelhaye ' s pin-up girls) what could have been the whole chapter ' s wardrobe, but what in reality belonged to " L.G., Esquire. " A striking comparison could have been made between L.G. and Hugh Murphy by enter- ing the " V " any hour of the day or night and viewing " Trapper Huge " in great coat and large lamb-skin hat. The Chi Psis were the first fraternity to get their house back and in spite of the more serious air which pervaded the " lawdge " most of the time, still had fun and their share of parties. This year, as always, good Chi Psis went around singing loudly, " Don ' t Fence Me In. " The Chi Psi roster included: William Atniore, Larrv Brown, Robert Carley, Robert Carter, John Childs, Kent Christopherson, Richard Farshon, Lvle Gelhave, Henry Haverstock, George Hilgerman, George King, George Miner, Thomas Moir, Hugh Murphy, Richard Murphy, Sam Prest, MacDonald Richards, Richard Spurzem, Robert Spurzem, and Thomas ' anderpool.

Their roster included people hke Kathryn Weesner of Phi U, A4arilyn Noper of HEA, Evelyn Harne of the Ag Christian Coun- cil, and Doris Neldner of the Social Coordinating committee. And then there was Lois Dennstedt who kept the Ag honor system run- ning. Founder ' s Day was celebrated fall quarter with a banquet at the Curtis, when the gals entertained two visiting members of the Kan- sas chapter. Winter quarter thev organized a chapter party and went to see the Ice Capades. Hell night the actives sent the pledges across the street to enter- tain the Farm House boys. After making the girls line up, the boys put makeup on for them. ' Tis said that Farm House still smells from the liberally applied cologne. Clovia members had trouble with their heating system, which re- sulted in heatless sleeping porches. So the gals went to bed in ski pants and heavy socks and shivered while they sang, " Keep the Home Fires Burning! " Members of Clovia were: Mary Anderson, Dorothv Arnold, Betty Brakken, Catherine Dasovich, Lois Dennstedt, Bcttv Dittnier, Lucille Ednian, Ruth Ewert, Marh ' s Fearing, Lucille Fitzsinions, Gloria Groth, Evelyn Harne, Theresa Hick- ner, Edith Johansen, Helen Johnson, Lucille Lerud, Violette Loija, Jean Morkassel, Betty Myhr, Ilene Nalev, Doris Neldner, Ella Nelson, Margaret Nelson, Mary Jean Nelson, Marilyn Noper, Elizabeth Norton, Frances Peters, Judy Potter, Lola Raine ' , Edith Sehl, Elsie Skaar, Margaret Skaar, Kathryn Weesner, Wilnia Weich- mann, and Jeanette Western.

Delta Delta Delta 316 Tenth Avenue Southeast Boston University, 1888 Minnesota Theta, 1894 This year the Tri Dehs rolled bandages, donated blood, worked on activities, and had fun. BWOC ' s included Mortar Board Joy Nissen who pounded the gavel for Union Board, Barbara Barton who was on the All-U Council, Jean Waite who slaved for the Gopher, and Lois Peterson who handled circulation matters for Skum. Then, of course, there was Barbie Nordstrom, who won the cov- eted title of Homecoming Queen. On the social side, the Tri Delts played at their fall party at Eaton ' s and their winter formal at the Curtis. A slumber party along about February found the gals sleeping on the floor and get- ting in shape for the spring vacation houseparty on the St. Croix. Good Tri Delts went around madly crooning, " Are You Having Any Fun?

Delta Gamma 1026 Fifth Street Southeast Lewis Institute, 1874 Minnesota Lambda, 1882 The DCs really hit an all time high this year in their participa- tion in world affairs. Emmy Lindgren dashed off to talk to Mrs. Roosevelt about the Youth Federalist Movement, and what was more, the whole chapter was backing Ruth Bryan Owen Rhodes for the National Peace Conference project. On campus the Delta Gammas were represented in many an or- ganization what with Maryann Krecklow on the Ag Union board; Betty Prosser, Mary Meier, and Nancy Critchett on the Cap and Gown Council; and June Richardson as president of Tarn O ' Shanter. On the lighter side of the picture, Rita Ann Rotering was queen of the Navy Drag. Mary Dill and Jean Bollman organized a plan whereby each DG had to pay five cents for every class cut. So the Delta Gammas sat around singing " Plenty of Money and You. " At the DG house this year were: Charlotte Anderson, Antoinette Baglev, Ehza- beth Bell, Jean Bollman, Peggv Brainard, Cynthia Brooks, Kathryn Brown, Ruth Caustin, Nancy Critchett, Annabelle Diehl, iMarv Dill, Athalia Dulebohn, Gwen Gilbert, Louise Graner, Laura Haverstock, Patricia Hegnian, Marcella Hegtvedt, June Herrick, Adelaide Hustad, Janet Jacobson, Marjorie Jacobson, Peg Johnston, Ann Kimball, Maryann Krecklow, Joyce LaLone, Marv Ellen Leighton, Emmy Lou Lindgren, Margaret Lowrv, Camille A4artineau, Claire Martineau, Mary Meier, Nancy Neal, Patricia Neuman, Constance Nickoloff, Barbara Olmsted, Harriette Orlady, Ruth Otterstein, Virginia Pickhardt, Betty Prosser, June Rich- ardson, Persis Robertson, Rita Ann Rotering, Margaret Roth, Barbara Samuelson, Marjorie Seybold, Barbara Ann Smith, Ann Taylor, Virginia Taylor, Annabelle Teberg, Ruth Tjossem, Muriel Townsend, Andrea Ueland, Cynthia Wahl, Mary Wallace, Mary Webster, Marian Weigel, Margaret Wilkins, and Virginia Wood- ruff.

Delta Kappa Epsilon 1711 University Avenue Southeast Vale, 1844 Minnesota Phi Epsilon, 1889 The Dekes tried hard to forget their age-old rivalry as they moved in with the Psi U ' s. Naturally this arrangement led to endless crap games which helped the Dekes pay their rent. The fellows raved about Tom Wilson of the hockey team, the only Democrat in the bunch. Tom got married in May and so left the Dekes with a strictly Republican chapter. Biggest laugh came each time Tom Hartzell parked his old jalopy next to Bill Whitaker ' s block-long Buick. As if it weren ' t enough to make the Dekes laugh, something fell out each time Tom took the car out. And then there was Jack Saidy. After going out with the boys for ages and hanging around the Deke house for years, he finally decided something had to be done and grabbed himself a pledge pin. Pledges included Bill Smith, who loved to shoot craps. Bob Grif- fiths, who left for the army after winter quarter, and Lyle Ehren- berg who knew almost every girl on the campus. Dekes organized a girl friends ' club and let the lucky gals sit in on their meetings. And then they held meetings, parties, parties and a few more parties. Beside the Deke song, brother Dekes carried on the old tradition and shouted merrily something about " Rum and Coca-Cola. " Dekes this year included: Lyle Ehrenberg, Bob Griffiths, Tom Hartzell, George McGeary, Bill Remole, Don Riley, Jack Saidy, Bill Smith, Charles Waldron, Bill Whitaker, and Tom Wilson.

Delta Tau Delta 1717 University Avenue Southeast Bethany Collese, 1859 Minnesota Beta Eta, 1883 The Delts carried on a full program this year with their war work, activities, and beer parties to help keep life on the brighter side. " hile the Navy occupied their house, the Delts lived with the Phi Delts, and as soon as they got back in their house, the Kappa Sigs rented the third floor front. Needless to say, this arrangement led to endless poker parties and crap games, but no consistent win- ner was ever determined. BMOC ' s included Ralph Wohlers who was a big gun in the Vet- erans Club and Paul Samuels who led cheers and played some trumpet in the Navy band. And then there was President John Harker who almost lost his mind assigning pictures for the Gopher. The boys also talked about athletes Red Baumann and Tom Mc- Govern. Vinter quarter the Delts held a huge party with the Kappas — complete with twelve cases of beer and hot dogs roasted over the fireplace. During the rest of their time, they enjoyed beer busts at the house and the Bridge Cafe. The Delts started out the year with a small chapter and since then have initiated many boys — including several veterans. Good Delts sat around and sang merrily, " Little David Was Small but Oh, My[ " Delts this year were: Arniin Baumann, William Droege, Willard Hafdahl, Charles Hamilton, John Harker, Al Hilliard, Douglas Hunt, Victor Leeby, Rich- ard Leekley, Thomas McGovern, Oscar Quamme, Paul Samuels, Jerome Smersh, George Thompson, Pierce Thompson, Jerome Wicklund, and Ralph Wohlers.

Delta Upsilon 921 University Avenue Southeast Williams College, 1834 Minnesota, 1890 Hardly a week went by that a returning serviceman didn ' t knock at the door of the DU house, which was operating in full swing. Not all of them were Minnesota DU ' s either. During the Homecoming week-end last fall, the boys played host to fifteen brothers from iM.I.T. who dropped in to get in on a little of the cele- brating. DU ' s made frequent visits to the Blood Bank and were justly proud of the fact that they sold more War Bonds than any other fraternity on campus during the campus Bond Drive during fall quarter. Big guns from the DU house included George Wright of the Union Board and Tom Peterson of the Veterans Club. Alusically inclined, all but two of the members played musical instruments, and pledge Bob Corbett had his own dance orchestra with which to entertain the boys. They did more than play, however, and had themselves a time at the annual spring formal and house party. The traditional DU scoreboard was in evidence during sorority rushing in October, and we quote the boys themselves as saying, " Gee, we wish we could have more of this impersonal observation! ! " Due to their proximity to sorority row, good DU ' s had fun. No wonder their theme was " Down the Road a Piece. " This year ' s DU ' s include: James Broker, Robert Corbett, Ward Duell, Lance Fraiser, Robert Hanev, Fredrick Hickler, Robert Hutchison, Arthur Ives, War- ren Kelvie, William iMcNult -, Robert Parker, Roger Patch, Thomas Saul, Robert Shirley, John Smith, Richard Sturre, Clarence Syvertson, and George Wright. Page 126 Delta Zeta 519 Tenth Avenue Southeast Miami University, 1902 Minnesota Gamma, 1923 When the Delta Zetas moved into a new house this year, it was fairly bursting with BWOC ' s — people like Peg Olivier, guiding light of the Lutheran Students Association, president of Eta Sigma Upsilon, and secretary of Pan-Hel. Mary Lynne Connor, Pan-Hel war efforts chairman, had plenty of support from her sisters who put in many an hour rolling bandages and packing boxes for Rus- sian War Relief. But the Delta Zetas were proudest of the fact that they ' ere the originators of the en masse blood donating idea on the campus. The annual Rose Dinner, held in the fall, was the big social event of the year as far as the gals were concerned. But life had its sad moments, especially v " hen their two pet goldfish died. The gals were plunged into deepest despair, and they held funeral services in a most appropriate manner to give the dear departed a Christian burial. Biggest excitement came when the Delta Zetas had a fire just be- fore Christmas and were " forced " to take refuge in the Delta Sig house. Since then, good Delta Ze ' tas have been whistling " Flamin ' Mamie " as they strolled from the house to the campus on the way to class. Members were: Jean Abbott, Jean Anderson, Gloria Bear, Betty Bullock, Mary Lvnne Connor, Bettv Crawford, Bett ' Dunning, Dorothy Geddes, Arlene Girg, Barbara Glidden, Mary Gustafson, Jane Hanft, Rosemary Harding, Carol Jen- toft, Jane Johnson, Edith Kelly, Marjorie Kelly, Barbara Knutson, Billie Lundy, Dorothy Matson, Barbara Mills, Pegg ' Oliyer, Man ' Preston, Marilyn Redeen, Ruth Ristau, Joan Schiefelbein, Florence Sinionelli, Margaret Slifer, Joyce Snow, Margaret Thomas, Margaret Wipperman, and Ruth Wolff.

Besides activities, the Gamma Betes managed a full social calen- dar including a colossal open house last fall that attracted all the campus bigwigs, including President Coffey himself. The fall house party was a howling success and when they added war work to all this, Gamma Betes quite naturally sang the " Weary Blues.

They initiated twenty pledges winter quarter — the largest group in many a year. Thetas pointed out Patty iMcKeon of the All-U Council and Louise Smith of the Board of Pub as their outstanding members. Also well-known around the campus were tall, dark, and lovely Peggy Sweeney and the much photographed Gracie Hurd. Thetas claimed credit for the second verse to Dubuque, which E. C.

The house was full of BWOC ' s — including people like Sally Rumble of the Intermediary Board, Bobbie Wilson of AWS, and Trevy Hugo-Smith of Pan- Hel. And then there were politicians Janet Miller and Weez Caley of the Commonwealth and Progressive Parties respectively. Usually found down in the depths of Murphy Hall was Frannie Ahern who worked like mad taking pictures for the Daily and the Gopher and doing a little reporting, too. The Kappa ' s national organization supported a war orphan this year — a little English boy — and each chapter contributed to his support. The Kappas also filled kits for the Russian War Relief and bought books to be sent to the Merchant Marine. And they entertained their mothers and fathers at lunch and sang merrily, " Sophisticated Lady.

Kappa Sigma 1125 Fifth Street Southeast University of Virginia, 1869 Minnesota Beta Mu, 1901 Still without a house, the Kappa Sigs were far from being an inactive chapter. The boys took over the third floor of the Delt house, and every Alonday night Herb Shane ' s familiar blue Ford coupe was seen in front of Smith ' s Tea Roo m where the boys had dinner. Herb was a BMOC, too, what with being treasurer of nearly every organization he belonged to, including the Interfraternity Council and the Commonwealth Party. Publications claimed a large number of Kappa Sigs — Daily sports editor Chuck Sweningsen, and columnist Julius Duscha who managed to get away from their jobs on the paper to drop in at the house occasionally. Then there was Bob Gordon who braved the feminine offices of Ski-U-A4ah to become assistant editor. He did well, and he did have fun! Big parties were ruled out for the Kappa Sigs this year, but the boys kept up their social life with smaller, informal parties and smokers. After living in the Delt house for a year, and watching their par- ties, the Kappa Sigs marched around the campus singing, " Get Thee Behind Me, Satan. " Kappa Sig members this ear were: Anthony Bianco, Julius Duscha, Robert Gordon, John Hodges, Kenneth Knutson, Robert D. Powell, Robert Rankin, Herbert Shane, Charles Sweningsen, Keith Thompson, George Van Senden, Ar- thur Wickstrom, and Donald Winter.

Phi Delta Theta 1027 University Avenue Southeast Miami University, 1848 Minnesota Alpha, 1881 Phi Delts spent a successful year with a series of highly success- ful beer parties. Fall quarter found the boys enjoying the Old Heidelberg party, winter quarter came the Ditch Digger ' s party, and an equally stupendous party came during spring quarter to make the boys completely happy. There were i66 men from the Minnesota chapter serving for Uncle Sam, and the national Phi Delt organization boasted 40 gen- erals and admirals in active service. Phi Delts were well known on the campus, especially in athletics. They pointed out Howard Johnson who wielded a hockey stick, Walt Wilder who slaved for the track team, and John Ludwick who played football. The door of the Phi Delt house disappeared one day winter quarter and the house was filled with sub-zero breezes for almost a week. Finally some one thought to look down in the basement — and sure enough, there it was! Those Phi Delts were really on the beam. The boys blamed the theft on the Alpha Gams, with whom they have a perennial feud, but the Alpha Gams wouldn ' t own up, con- sequently the Phi Delts sat and peered out the windows and won- dered and worried, " What Will They Think of Next? " Phi Delta Theta members were: Oliver Andresen, James Bandelin, George Beck, William Branch, Walton Clevenger, Daniel Eich, David Johnson, Howard Johnson, John Kelly, John Ludwick, Samuel Pelstring, David Prosser, William Roell, Lee Spangler, Edward Swenson, Kermit Turley, Philip Whittaker, and Walter Wilder.

Campus big men this year were Ed G elf and and Norman Ravich, Technolog staff, and Al Gold- stein, in charge of the Navy Ball. Campus activities were right up their alley. And students seeing a gigantic black camera walking in and out of campus buildings knew at once that it was followed by Phi Ep Jimmy Ginsberg, its constant companion and trusty Gopher and Technolog photographer. Things managed to stay pretty lively as their New Year ' s Eve house party, winter quarter sleigh ride, joint stag with the SAE ' s, and famous Cabaret party indicated. Rugged Phi Eps won academic fraternity football championship with six straight victories and the academic bowling championship fall quarter. He-men Silverman, Saxon, Freeman, and Pill were the shining lights. We know that ' s good but why toon ' t they stop sing- ing, " We Just Called Up to Tell You that We ' re Rugged but Right " !

Both boys were much in demand as the Phi Gams received daily lessons from them, and then amazed the campus by spouting Turkish phrases at the drop of a hat. Active on the campus, the Phi Gams talked of people like Bill Battersby of Ski-U-iMah, Gordon Handevidt of the University Theatre, and Ralph Nevins of the University Band. Athletes in- cluded Tom Metz, who played hockey; Jack Gauldin who wielded a wicked tennis racket; and Joe Whitney and Dennis Lane, who were active on the track team. The old Phi Gam house was taken over by the WAVE ' s this year so they made their headquarters the Delta Chi house. Numer- ous visits to the present WAVE ' s quarters to get a few remaining cups, etc., were especially enjoyed by members of the local Phi Gam chapter. Phi Gams have a soft spot in their hearts for the old house, how- ever, and so for a while, we hope not too long, we acknowledge their right to the song title, " Till Then.

Page 136 Phi Kappa Psi 1609 University Avenue Southeast Washington and Jefferson College, 1852 Minnesota Beta, 1886 Back in their newly furnished house, the Phi Psis beat the man- power shortage by inviting girl friends over to help wash dishes, paint the living room, tack carpeting, and even cook a few meals. Taking care of the gas shortage, they provided the laugh of the year when they arrived at the Interfratemity Ball in a moving van and almost caused a riot. Pride and joy of the active chapter was their pledge class. Be- sides having Dan Burns, the boy who looks like an Johnson, and J. D. Lane, the boy without a name, the Phi Psis had their own bobby-sock brigade following little Bobby Ranseen, the boy with the voice. As proof of the fact that the Phi Psis did more than play this ' year, Jim Whalen pointed to the 25 pounds he left in the Interfra- temity office this fall when he was chairman of Interfratemity rushing, activities, social, and scholarship committees. Social highlight of the year was the traditional Miner ' s party in February, and as the rest of the parties were better than ever, most Phi Psis were hummin ' " Having a Wonderful Time. " Phi Psi members were: Richard Anderson, Robert Berglund, Richard Bos- worth, Lowell Brekke, Daniel Burns, John Childs, Gage Colby, Howard Feldmann, Robert Fink, Rex Heinell, John Hopkins, Lee Johnson, James Kelly, Robert Klass, Harrison Kost, Jav Dee Lane, Neil McGraw, Willard Morse, George Nel- son, Robert Nevin, Robert Otte, Allen Poehler, Robert Ranseen, Gunnard Rey- nolds, John Ryan, Wayne Seymore, John Street, Edward Sullivan, Matthew Sut- ton, Clayton Swanson, Raymond Tharp, Robert Warner, James Whalen, Richard Whitney, and Scott Winn.

They pointed with pride to people like Margaret Ann Peterson of the Student Religious Council, Betty Stewart, the Pan-Hel rush- ing chairman, Joan Lundeen of the theatah, and Alice Brown of the League of Women Voters. Then there was Sally Haxby, who hung around the Gopher for quarters on end, and finally decided to get on the Board of Pub. On the social side, the Pi Phis gave a barn dance at Christmas Lake in Loie Tufty ' s bam last fall, an informal party winter quar- ter, and a formal dinner dance in the spring. As the Pi Phis went on madly chanting about how they are the Pifis, the Pifis are they, the rest of the students were heard to mut- ter, " There Goes that Song Again!

SAE social life was wide and varied this year. Not only did they practically buy out Duffy ' s, but they held parties and parties. Fall quarter came a party at the St. Paul Casino, a Homecoming party and a Christmas party for the Pillsbury boys. They solved the meat shortage when they went out hunting around the block one day and brought back a deer and some ducks. War activities consisted of watching men go into the service. Three hundred men have left since Pearl Harbor, but passersby still look at the SAE house and sing, " There ' s a Small Hotel.

Sigma Alpha Mu 915 University Avenue Southeast City College of New York, 1909 Minnesota Kappa, 1915 Besides being loo per cent blood donors and selling war bonds, the Sigma Alpha Mus also made clothes collections for the Russian and Greek War Relief societies. Another war activity was their monthly letter to their boys in the service. After their kitchen was reopened this fall, they went in for social life in a big way. Between their annual parties, they serenaded the AEPhis and the SDT ' s and skated on their private skating rink. In campus activities, the SAM ' s were paced by veteran Marv Korengold and his brother Stan. Marv was on the Senate Commit- tee for Student Affairs and the Minnesota Foundation, and was a leader in the Progressive Party. Stan was the student director of Hillel and on the Law Review. Chubby Stu Cohen worked off a few pounds when he was vice- president of Hillel, chairman of Union dances, and a member of the Hillel council, too. The Sammys also held frequent beer busts and parties and when asked for details, coyly sang, " I Was Watching a Man Paint a Fence. " Members of Sigma Alpha Mu were: Milton Bellis, Lawrence Berger, James Ber- nian, Milton Bohard, Sheldon Brooks, Stuart Cohen, Michael Couplin, Arthur Davidson, Burton Gindler, Pat Green, Calvin Gross, Harold Grossman, Theodore Hanson, Harold Kapelowitz, Jerome Kaufman, Marvin Korengold, Stanley Koren- gold, Harold Kudish, Leonard LaBelle, David Laurie, Merle Mattenson, Chester Oksner, Richard Pritikin, Robert Putterman, Morris Rosenfield, Arthur Rubenstein, Sheldon Rubenstein, Melvin Sachs, Arnold Savitt, Louis Schandler, Arthur Schwartz, Sheldon Scliwartz, Allen Specter, Stanley Strimling, Jerald Toberman, Norman Warshaw, Arthur Weisberg, James Weiss, and Murrv Wiszner.

Sigma Chi 1623 University Avenue Southeast Miami University, 1855 Minnesota Alpha Sigma, 1888 Short of coal one unhappy day, the Sigma Chis borrowed an armful or two from the kindly Betas next door. The boys may have tried to squeeze each other out during rushing, but came Old Alan Winter and they all hung together or most assuredly they ' d all have frozen separately! They even threw the Sigma Nu eagle into the roaring blaze, but the old bird was obtained by rather spurious methods and had noth- ing at all to do with the brotherly love or charitable feelings of the Sigma Nus. In the Sigma Chi hall of fame were found Dick " Trig " Tregilgas of the i ll-U Council, Harry Buetow, president of Xi Psi Phi, an d Bill Muesing, president of AKK. Among the newer men were Bob Rickbeil and Alden Eiland, both transfers from North Dakota University who, with Hank Egan, spent enjoyable extra moments as Alpha Gam houseboys. Obviously the boys had finesse — not only with the food, but also with the " femmes, " for both Bob and Alden were pinned to fair Alpha Gams. Their stock of men evidently looked extra special to Uncle Sam, judging from the large number of Sigma Chis now in the service, and the boys were quite used to singing " Farewell Blues. " Leo Bantle, Harrv Buetow, Richard DeVVall, Henry Egan, Alden Eiland, Louis Farr, John Koch, William Muesing, John Newman, Richard Osterberg, Donald Porter, Robert Rickbeil, Ernest Sewell, and Richard Tregilgas were Sigma Chis this year. f LIGHTING A CIGARETTE for Leo Bantle is Dick DeWall, while Gordie Coldas and Did Tregilgas look on rather hungrily.

Other special events included a fall party at the Nicollet, a special party for servicemen, and an ultra successful open house after pledging.

Not content with serving the food on trays and paper napkins like Charlie Hall ' s, the Sigma Kappas even got the famous chicken. Well known around the campus was Marge Brandt, whose favor- ite greeting " Howdy-doodv " got to be a password around the house and the Y office. Joyce Striemer and Janet Johnson worked on the variety dances and other Union committees. And who didn ' t know Kappy Girton who slaved for the Daily in all her waking moments. In addition to their regular bandage rolling and blood donating, the Sigma Kappas worked on the national organization ' s project of making scrapbooks for the USO. In the social line, the gals included a party out at Kappy ' s lake home and a winter quarter dinner dance at the Athletic Club.

Sigma Nu 307 Sixteenth Avenue Southeast Virginia Military Institute, 1869 Minnesota Gamma Tau, 1904 In addition to being scholars and athletes, Sigma Nu men were well represented in campus activities. Men like Murray Butts, presi- dent of the Interfraternity council, and John Christianson, presi- dent of the YMCA and active in several organizations, helped to keep the Sigma Nus in the public eye. Athletically inclined, the Sigma Nus talked about boys like Arnie Holland, the wrestling champion of New York State; Tom Smith, Gordon Quist, and Dick Schmitz of the football team; Tom Aamodt of the hockey team; and Phil Ryan who got into every- thing under the sun. The Sigma Nus were in their house all year and mighty glad to be there. After all, it helped to have a house when entertaining — or being entertained by — such celebrities as June March and Johnny Long who happened to drop in on the boys for a visit during the year. On the fun side, Sigma Nus had a formal spring quarter and, of course, their annual shipwreck party. The latter was quite the deal with nothing but moonlight and hula skirts.

Pase 144 Theta Chi 315 Sixteenth Avenue Southeast Norwich University, 1856 Minnesota Alpha Pi, 1924 Starting the year with only four actives, and one of those a trans- fer from Missoula, the Theta Chis did a lot of good rushing and wound up the year a chapter of about twenty-five. Best known of them all was the " old man " of the chapter, Phil Rosendahl. There were a lot of journalists among these boys, as usual, what with Harry McCarthy as the copy editor for the Daily, and Ed Niebuhr reporting sports and an old Theta Chi tradition was upheld. Not limited to writing interests, the Theta Chis bragged about Bill Johnson, their football playing, music majoring pledge, and Dick Cox, who really pounded the piano. Also, they pointed with pride to Marsh Pollock, who was reported to be the only man on the campus who knew all four verses of " Poor Lil. " Handlebar moustaches and barbershop quartets highlighted the annual Rogue ' s party held early in February — as this year it had a Gay Nineties theme. But the most memorable party, at least to three of the members, was the fall quarter initiates party. They ' ll long re- member the tags they got— just ' cause they were in such a hurry to get to the party. Since then the whole gang has been singing, " There ' s a Tear in My Beer Tonight. " Members were: Leeds Baunian, Jack Beach, Robert Buckley, Richard Cox, Walter Dokken, Joseph Eikenberry, John Erickson, Robert Evans, Donald Gun- derson, Chadwick Haberstroh, Arnold Johnson, William Johnson, Willis Mark- ham, Harry McCarthy, David Miller, Carl Myron, Ellerth Overboe, Robert Park, Herbert Pijan, Phillip Rosendahl, Lee Rupprecht, and Gordon Wintheiser.

The Zetas also got into activities this year — with a bang. Dor- othy McNeill was Pan-Hel president, Marion Scudder and Ruth Koplitz slaved away for the Y, and Jeanne Mack, Pat McNary, and Trudy Gorman were almost always in the Daily office. Parties for servicemen highlighted the Zeta ' s social calendar, what with numerous open houses for soldiers and sailors and an extra- special party for the Fort Snelling OCS. And then there was the night that two Acacias had to play second-story men to unlock one of the doors. (Annually the Zeta Tau Alphas have trouble with their doors.)

FRONT ROW: Steinman, Taylor, Dunsworth, Berde, Crispin, Mortar Board For leadership, scholarship, and unselfish service to the University — that is how Mortar Board mem- bers were chosen. Mortar Board girls always have been big women on campus, but this year ' s chapter had more than its share of prominent people. For instance, there was Nancy Reid, the president of the YVVCA and the chairman of the Mortar Board survey; Jean Danaher, president of the All-U Council and a member of the Senate Committee on Student Af- fairs; and Mary Englehart, the president of the Ag Union Board, and a member of Phi Upsilon Omicron. Then there was Gerry Sohle, the editor of the Daily, Joy Nissen, the president of Union Board, and Kathryn Dale, the president of the Radio Guild, a member of Masquers, Zeta Phi Eta, and the National Collegiate Players. Two of the girls, Irene Berde and Bea Caley were assistants in the political science department. Bea, who was a graduate student, was formerly the chairman of the Campus Chest. Irene was student director of Flillel Foundation and active on the Campus Committee for Roosevelt. Active on the farm campus were Edna Marie Burrill, Kathryn Weesner, and Feme Crispin. Edna Marie was active in AWS and Phi Upsilon Omi- cron, Feme was vice president of AWS and a member of Beta Gamma Sigma, and Kathryn was on the Ag Student Council and the president of PhiU. Dona Simpson was president of the Inter-Pro council, Sara Steinman was president of Hillel, president Reva Jean Dunsworth was on the sopho- more coordinating council of AWS, and Mary Teberg was chairman of Freshman Week. Then there was Virginia Paulson, who was on the All-U Council and a member of Phi U. Graduates included Mary Liz Preston who was doing field work in public health. Marge Benson, past business manager of the Gopher, and Virginia Taylor, now in the W AC, who was formerly on the Union Board and the AWS Cap and Gown Council. As their project for this year. Mortar Board members worked on the problem of a better advi- sory system to help students find out about avail- able jobs. They again held the traditional breakfast on May I , discontinued since the start of the war.

Beta Gamma Sigma One of the outstanding events of the year for Beta Gamma Sigma was the initiation of Richard Kozelka, Acting Dean of the Business School. Dean Kozelka was initiated at a dinner given for the ac- tive members and all of the alumni in the Twin Ci- ties. The dinner was held during fall quarter in the Union. In addition to their regular meetings once a quar- ter, Beta Gamma Sigma members held their tradi- tional spring picnic at which they elected the officers for next year. The fraternity also backed the Business School Day which came around in the spring. Winter quarter most of the members went out to do their practice work as accountants with Twin City business firms, so social and campus activities were somewhat curtailed. Howard Jensen got his practical experience right on the campus, however, as he was the officia l bookkeeper for the Campus Club. Besides being active in the Business School affairs, many of the members were prominent in campus activities. Beta Gamma Sigma was proud of people Honorary commerce University of Wisconsin, 1913 Minnesota Alpha, 1921 like Feme Crispin and Bea Caley who were elected to A4ortar Board; Dick Lundquist, who was oh-so- active in the Lutheran Students Association; Ann Curran who was well-known in the Flying Club; and Kyle Petersen, who pounded the gavel for the Business Women ' s Club. Beta Gamma Sigma originated with the consoli- dation of three local honorary clubs — the Econom- ics Club of the University of California, Delta Kappa Chi of the University of Illinois, and the original Beta Gamma Sigma fraternity of the Uni- versity of Illinois. The members of Beta Gamma Sigma thought they were most outstanding for their lack of activity. They felt that they were strictly an honorary so- ciety and left the activities to other organizations. Among the student members of Beta Gamma Sigma were: Julian Anderson, Harriet Caley, Feme Crispin, Ann Curran, Rosemary Jarvis, Howard Jensen, Robert Kelber, Ruth Lindgren, Richard Lundquist, Kyle Petersen, and George Suzuki. The Minnesota chapter included many faculty members who are active in war work. They were: Eugene Altschul, Roy Blakey, Francis Boddy, Ar- thur Borak, Hamilton Chute, Catherine Crowe, George Filipetti, Frederic Garver, Ernest Heilman, Richard Kozelka, Aurelius Morgner, Bruce Mud- gett, Edmund Nightingale, J.

Needless to say, member- ship in this fraternity placed a mark of distinction upon the undergraduate. With a large percentage of their alumni in the armed forces and the size of their chapter greatly depleted by the war, the Chi Epsilons continued to hold professional meetings during the past year. Under discussion at these get-togethers were the civil engineering problems. Members were: Don Billing, Carl Chloupck, Lloyd Duscha, Richard Evans, Gene Holdhusen, Kenneth Hoyt, Louis Huset, John Jensen, Charles Peterson, Robert Rosene, Elmer Thiesse, and Wil- liam Walsh. Honorary civil engineering University of Illinois, 1922 Minnesota, 1923 Delta Phi Delta Aiembers of Delta Phi Delta went out to the art colony at Stillwater twice this year — once on Hal- loween and once on Lincoln ' s birthday. In fact, they held pledging out there. The gals also held a tea for John Rood, the artist in residence at the U, and raised fi2o by selling Christmas cards.

Eta Kappa Nu Although it is an honorary, not a social frater- nity, Eta Kappa Nu managed to have at least one social event per quarter. Initiations, climaxed by the formal initiation banquets, were held in August and again in February. The big party of the year came fall quarter when they all saw " Othello. " Meetings were short and snappy, as the Navy boys could only be out from 6:30 until 7:15. So, the boys just had time to discuss how the money in the treasury could be spent. Members of Eta Kappa Nu this year included: Gerard An- derson, Dennis Angland, Victor Beck, Edward Carlson, Ran- dolph Houlton, Douglas Johnson, James Lippke, John iMonson, George Olson, David Schmidt, Paul Senstad, and Laurel Udden. Eta Sigma Upsilon The members of Eta Sig kept themselves busy during the year with thr ee important projects. Fall quarter they sponsored several student-faculty cof- fee hours in the women ' s lounge of the Union. One coffee hour held with Phi Lambda Theta was a great success. According to the annual tradition, the Eta Sigs sold Christmas carol books put out by the College of Education. The members partially were responsible for the organization of the Inter- mediary Board in the College of Education.

' • ' A STREET As was the case with most of the engineering so- cieties, Pi Tau Sigma was composed of a majority of V- 1 2 students. Two civilians. Bob Anderson and Ed Decker, however, held down the responsible positions of president and treasurer, respectively. Although missing from the group picture, J. R. DuPriest deserved special mention. As the faculty advisor for the chapter. Professor DuPriest and his office served as headquarters for the fraternity. All official mail came through his office and his advice gave the chapter a crutch to lean on, especially during the war. The chapter felt particularly at a loss at the recent death of J. V. Martenis, professor of me- chanical engineering. Professor Martenis served as the national president of the f raternity from 1932 until 1940. A recent addition to the chapter was A. B. AI- gren who returned to the campus this fall. Professor Algren was faculty advisor three years ago, prior to a leave of absence from the University. The iMinnesota chapter of Pi Tau Sigma was founded in 1922 by senior students in mechanical engineering. It was first set up as a local fraternity called Eta Mu Sigma and later incorporated into the national Pi Tau Sigma. The Minnesota chapter originated the idea of an Honor Roll inscribed with the names of the two sophomore students in mechanical engineering hav- ing the highest grades. This chapter also awarded a prize to the mechanical engineering sophomore who had the highest record for his first two years. This prize usually takes the form of an engineering handbook. Needless to say, all of the sophomore members were out to rake in these honorary distinc- tions. The competition was severe, but three of the members made the grade. National Pi Tau Sigma was founded in 19 15 at the University of Illinois, as an honorary fraternity for mechanical engineering students. Its purpose is to furnish an organization " to foster the high ideals of the engineering profession, to stimulate interest in coordinate departmental activities, and to pro- mote the welfare of its members. " Members were chosen on the basis of scholastic standing, faculty rating, and the members ' opinions. Active members of Pi Tau Sigma this year in- cluded: Robert Anderson, John Barry, John Borry, Edward Decker, Robert Granum, Robert Jamison, Robert Kulp, William MuUenmiester, and Robert Turnacliff.

Sigma Epsilon Sigma Sigma Theta Tau The members of Sigma Epsilon Sigma, honorary national sophomore women ' s sorority, got together once a week during the year for noon meetings in the Union. During the spring quarter the class room discussions of the post-war planning week were under the direction of the group, headed by Gerry Stoner. The gals took charge of the collec- tion end of the relief for Holland, sponsored by SWECC. To complete their activities the Sigma Epsilon Sigmas filled Russian war relief kits. Members of Sigma Epsilon Sigma included: Dorothy Bab- cock, Margaret Brant, Catherine Chadwick, Joan Clark, Martha Corey, Jane Cox, Gloria Fessler, Muriel Gustafson, Rosemarie Henley, Marjorie Kirschner, Dorothy Kutz, Patricia Meyer, Helen Paulson, Jean Rubin, Gerry Stoner, Betty Swanson, Lor- raine Toms, Barbara Visscher, and Bayle Zurovsky.

The annual Founder ' s Day banquet was held fall quar- ter and the initiation dinner rolled around spring quarter. In addition, Sigma Theta Taus held in- formation meetings when they listened to book re- ports and speakers. Among the speakers was Dr. Joseph Cochran who spoke on medicine in Iran. Members this year were: Hazel Anderson, Helen Bacon, Mar- tha Boyle, Dorothy Christison, Ruth Clemetson, Dorothy Cochran, Helen Hatlelid, Helen Johnson, Joan Kunny, Lois Martens, Lydia Mitlyng, Miriam Morgan, Harriet Oxley, Jean Peterson, Dorothy Putnam, Alma Sparrow, Virginia Watters, and Helen Webber.

The organization, an honorary society for engineers, took in fellows from all of the branches of the engineering field. When the members of Phi Beta Kappa decided that engineers could not belong to that fraternity, the men in the engineering field got together and founded Tau Beta Pi, which corresponded in all respects, scholastic and otherwise, to Phi Beta Kappa. The members of the local Tau Beta Pi chapter decided that the library in the engineering building was somewhat on the technical side — so they de- cided to establish -just an ordinary literature corner in the library. All the books in this section were purchased or donated by Tau Beta Pi. Not only did the boys buy the reading matter, but they also bought cases wherein such works of fiction were stored. The Tau Betes were also proud of the fact that they purchased a large globe to be used in the building. The members of Tau Beta Pi went in for the social life in a big way — yes, they had one party during the year. From all reports it seemed that the treasurer was rather tight with the bankroll — so the lack of parties was not due to the lack of in- terest on the part of the members. However, the actives showed the new initiates a good time at the dinner held at the Leamington Hotel. The presence of President Coffey made the event a big success. The members of Tau Beta Pi got together for very informal meetings — not once a week, not once a month, not once a quarter — just whenever they felt like calling a meeting. Certain persons — might as well be specific — John Barry and Don Billing, kept insisting that the Tau Beta Pi honorary en- gineering society did not have a very active year. Guess they knew what they were talking about. The members of Tau Beta Pi this past year in- cluded: James Anderson, Robert Anderson, D. W. Angland, John Barry, John Beck, V. Beck, Don Billing, Robert Boiler, John Borry, Russ Brait, Robert Burtis, Glen Fevig, William Gallup, Robert Granum, John Gruenfelder, Thomas Harrington, James Holdhusen, Robert Holl, R. L.

Theta Nu Theta Nu was a brand new sorority, as it was formed only last year, so most of its meetings this year were given over to organizational work. It was also the only band sorority in the country. Among their projects, the girls in Theta Nu redec- orated the band lounge, sponsored a band mixer fall quarter, and gave a sleighride winter quarter for the servicemen in the band. The girls also sent repre- sentatives to other universities to organize chapters of the sorority.

Alpha Epsllon lota After being homeless for a few years, the girls in Alpha Epsilon Iota finally found a few rooms across from iMillard Hall. So, this year, they spent most of their time painting, slip-covering, and cleaning their new home. The lucky gals managed to snare some furniture from the alums and associate members. Aside from being handy for meetings, lunches, and parties, the rooms were in great demand for the frequent bridge games. Although being in Medical School took up a lot of their time, these girls still managed to have fun. Highlight of fall quarter was the informal dance at the Curtis after initiation. Winter quarter. Alpha Epsilon Iota celebrated Founder ' s Day with a banquet at the Leamington. The party had a case history as its theme, tracing the progress of the sorority. Then the freshmen put on an anatomy quiz, acting out the answers with charades in an effort to stump the omniscient upper- classmen. One of the traditional events at these banquets was the presentation by the junior class of proph- ecies for the seniors. This year, forecasts were read by a girl dressed as a fortune teller— complete with crystal ball— and were written in poetry. Spring quarter was the farewell banquet for the seniors before they left for their internship. This was also a traditional affair, with gifts for each graduate from the chapter. Every wife of the head of a department in the Medical School was made an associate member of Alpha Epsilon Iota. These associate members gave a party for the active chapter each quarter and the gals reciprocated by throwing one for them. Through these parties the girls got acquainted with the faculty. Studying for an MD didn ' t leave much time for campus activities, but Alpha Epsilon Iota claimed such well remembered people as Helen Peik Stev- enson of Mortar Board and Mary Teberg of AWS, as well as Cherry Cedarleaf, a member of the All-U Council. Members this year included Florence Bouthilet, Terry Brey, Cherry Cedarleaf, Anne Cotter, Eliza- beth Craig, Priscilla Day, Lois Eil, Ruth Eldred, Ethel Erickson, Roberta Follansbee, Jane Gum- precht, Mary Jane Jensen, Betty Jolly, Ruth Jolly, Doreen Martin, Elaine McKenzie, Lenore Nimlos, Jeanette Opsahl, Madelaine Scatterday, Helen Stev- enson, and Maxine Taylor. 305 Union Street Southeast Professional medicine University of Michigan, 1890 Minnesota Epsilon, 1901 Page 157 BACK ROW: Jakobsson, Heney, Jewell, HIniel, Burgess, Peterson.

Alpha Chi Sigma Professional chemistry 613 Oak Street Southeast University of Wisconsin, 1902 Minnesota Beta, 1904 Beta chapter of the national professional chemical fraternity, Alpha Chi Sigma, really was hit hard by the draft board. However, the active members, who for the most part were Navy boys and graduate students, carried on in high style. The calendar in the Al- pha Chi Sigma house was kept filled with numerous activities during the year. Two highlights of the summer months were boat parties on the " S.S. Donna Mae " — which incidentally were most successful. Fall quarter found the actives giving many rushees a good time at a smoker and giving themselves a good time on a gay hayride. During the months of December and January the Alpha Chi Sigs took life easy, but in February they blossomed out again with a formal initiation banquet and another rushing smoker. It was understood around campus that in normal peace time the social events of the Alpha Chi Sigs occur more often — did the members ever find time to study? Thanks to two of the members the record collection at the house grew by leaps and bounds during the year. It seemed that a certain Cooney Carlson and a certain Gerhard Hass signed a pact whereby each member of the agreement had to buy an album of records every time he took a drink. Along about spring quarter the other members wondered if they should buy extra record cabinets. Alpha Chi Sigma members were: Robert Burtis, Curtis Carlson, Gene Erickson, Gordon Gorecki, Tom Harrington, Gerhardt Hass, Lvsle Heney, Lloyd Hinzel, William Jewell, Kerniit Moskop, Ralph Myhre, Leonard Norcia, Edward Parry, Paul Rebers, Herbert Schroeder, John Streitz. Pase 158 Alpha Kappa Kappa Professional medicine 1021 East River Road Dartnnouth, 1888 Minnesota Psi, 1898 The members of Alpha Kappa Kappa studied hard this past year but every Saturday night the books were banned at the " 102 1 Poker and Social Club " and light refreshments were served to add to the enjoyment of the evening. Among the high spots of the year to be remembered were the formal dance held last summer and the Founder ' s Day banquet at which Dr. William T. Braash of Roches- ter was the principal speaker. Redecorating the house was a big job, but the work was shared enthusiastically by all the members — after slight twisting of arms. However, it was worth the effort because the Alpha Kappa Kappa mansion was one of the show places along the River Road. AKK sent teams into almost every type of intramural contest which was held this year. The outcome was not exactly what they had hoped for in most cases, but if there were a runner-up cup, it belonged to the AKK ' s. The fame of Psi chapter of Alpha Kappa Kappa spread far and wide, not because of their crack teams, but because of the nicknames tagged to the members — Denver Jim, Congo, Big Black — just to mention a few. Members of Alpha Kappa Kappa this year were: Robert Christenson, Al Fre- theni, Richard Gaard, David Gilbertson, John Glaeser, Julius Gutekunst, Donald Hauser, John Hayes, Harold Henry, Joseph Henry, Robert Hodapp, William Hunt, Robert Koller, William Miller, William Muesing, Vernon Neils, Kenneth Nimlos, Donald NoUet, Charles Peluso, Alphonse Pontrelli, Anthony Rozycki, John Run- quist, Richard Salk, Harold Solvasan, Larry Swanson, William Watson, and Tom Wright.

Meetings were held every Tuesday night in the Union, and two dinner meetings were held, one for active members and one for alums and actives combined. Then they held parties — for instance, the formal in the Italian Room at the Radisson on December 15, which gave them a chance to drag out long dresses and silver slippers and have a fling in gay old pre-war style. Founded in 1922, Alpha Kappa Gamma cele- brated Founders ' Day in iMarch. This year they held a big banquet at the Minneapolis Athletic Club, at which they had fun, needless to say. The gals cooperated with the Interprofessional Sorority Council when the Council sponsored a party at the Pillsbur ' Settlement House in Decem- ber, and donated gifts besides helping with the games and refreshments. Still they found time for war work, and rolled bandages conscientiously, to say nothing of donat- ing blood. An extra war activity was the packing of boxes for the Russian War Relief — said boxes were filled with food and clothing. Lots of people from Alpha Kappa Gamma were prominent on the campus this year. Among them were Virginia MacMillan who swam for the Aquat- ic League, Barbara Tucker who was vice president of the Inter-Pro Council, and Margaret Maser who was the chapter ' s candidate for Homecoming Queen. Margaret won a place among the first ten candidates through her high powered tactics in the button sales contest. During Hell Week, the actives decided to be tough on the pledges, and so they cooked up a proj- ect for the about-to-be members. Said plan in- cluded giving a skit at the Delta Sig house, which the actives thought would embarrass the poor kids to death. They ivere surprised when the pledges came home hours later after having a wonderful time at the Delta Sig party! They really fooled the actives.

Delta Sigma Delta Professional dentistry 525 Tenth Avenue Southeast University of Michigan, 1882 Minnesota Theta, 1894 Theta chapter of Delta Sigma Delta was at last free of all mort- gages and debts. The mortgage was burned and, in addition, quite a lot of money was saved this year for the construction of a new house after the war. A party in honor of the graduating seniors was held at the Com- modore Hotel in St. Paul. Fall quarter, the active members invited all the alumni to the annual Homecoming party held at the house, but the really big event of the year was the winter formal held at the Radisson Hotel. With most of the members in the fraternity engaged in part-time work after school, only a limited number of the fellows were able to partake in the intramural sports. Some of the boys went out for basketball, softball, and touchball, however, and the bowling team copped the IM championship for the Delta Sigs. Act ive in Delta Sig tliis year were: Wallace Acton, Donald Backlund, Mel- vin Baken, George Bartlett, Milton Bartsh, Lambert Benson, Douglas Blesi, Robert O. Carlson, Robert W.

Delta Sigma PI Professional business 1029 Fourth Street Southeast New York University, 1907 Minnesota Alpha Epsilon, 1924 With 135 Delta Sigs in the service, the local chapter carried on under the leadership of president Art Carlson. The brothers spent much of their time preparing the Delta Sig scandal sheet, known as the Tattler, which was sent to all alums, both at home and over- seas. It seemed that the alumni chapter was very active — in fact, they met once a week for lunch at the Covered Wagon for great discussions. Every month throughout the year the Delta Sigma Pis had a pro- fessional meeting to which they invited professional men to talk on various business organizations, sales, and marketing in the Twin Cities ' area. About twice each quarter the members visited the local industries — for why. ' To learn about big business, of course. Each year the business faculty awards a Delta Sigma Pi key to the senior who maintains the highest scholastic average in the com- merce courses. The Alpha Chis and Alpha Gams were big attractions for the boys, the latter especially for Bud Friskey. An extra smooth char- acter among the " haunted house " boys was none other than Warren Johnson, stellar pianist with Bob Hewitt ' s band, who often enter- tained the chapter. Since the war began, the boys have missed the ' swish of fomials and grass skirts at their annual spring dance, but plan big things for the future. A-t embers included: Arthur Carlson, John Friskey, Rudy Janzen, Warren Johnson, Frank Leekley, Lloyd Prochnow, Carl Sand, and James Thueson.

Nu Sigma Nu Professional medicine 429 Union Street Southeast University of Michigan, 1882 Minnesota Epsilon, 1892 The Nu Sigs got some new furniture for their house this year, bright red leather stuff, but six hours after they got it, some coy soul put his foot through one of the chairs. Nothing daunted the Nu Sigs though, and they carried on with bigger and better parties. Fall quarter they had a dinner-dance at the house — with girls, natch! Winter quarter they had a sleigh- ride which they insist was for the alums. They really did have their annual banquet with the alums on February 21 when they cele- brated the burning of the mortgage. Seems the actives turned over $606 to the alums and paid off the darn thing, and then immedi- ately began the plans for the new house to be built after the war. Nu Sigs will long remember the day when Don McGeary tried to take a sun-bath on the roof, and fell through it. This year ' s chapter included many boys in the Army, among them president Jack Saidy, who thought turning in copy for the Gopher was a helluva good joke. Members this year were: Martin Adson, John Alden, Mark Anderson, William Atmore, Edward Bauer, Jaines Bovsen, Robert Carter, Donald Derauf, Robert Drake, James Fearing, James Fox, Richard Frey, John Galligan, Edwin Gomsi, Fred Havens, Jav Hoyt, Riciiard Johnson, Sheldon Kavute, Jerome Keefe, Wil- liam Kelly, Richard Kline, William Kucera, Charles Lindeman, Joseph Mann, William Maloney, Thomas Martin, Robert Maxeiner, John McDonald, Donald McGeary, William McKenna, Wallace Miners, John Newman, William Nuessle, William O ' Brien, Ben Owens, William Remole, William Rvan, John Saidv, Fran- cis Schnugg, David Utz, John Watson, Matthew Weir, Theodore Wilson, and Thomas Young.

Phi Beta PI Professional medicine 329 Union Street Southeast University of Pittsburgh, 1891 Minnesota Xi, 1904 The Phi Betes had nothin ' but parties this year, provin ' that medics have fun — as if any one didn ' t already know it. The Home- coming party took the spotHght with the house decorated as a gambhng casino. Add to this two dances, numerous facuhy-alumni informal suppers, and frequent sleighrides and skating parties, and you have the recipe for a gay season. The Phi Betes also had bi-monthly " Sangerfests " at which they sang some of their well worn songs. Members of chapters in other states were frequent visitors, including boys from Temple U. Teams from Phi Bete entered most all of the interprofessional athletic events during the year. Other Phi Betes sponsored a pro- gram to familiarize freshman and sophomore members with hos- pital procedure.

Phi Chi Professional medicine 325 Harvard Street Southeast University of Vermont, 1889 Minnesota Kappa Chi, 1920 In addition to the regular quarter parties, the Phi Chis held vari- ous impromptu gatherings proving that the average medical student didn ' t neglect the social aspect of his education. Fall quarter the Phi Chis played at a formal at the Francis Drake. The boys had two basketball teams in the Intramural race this year. One played for Phi Chi and the other played " just for fun. " The Phi Chis tried again to capture a new trophy for their mantle and boasted of Jim Wild of the hockey team. Continuing to maintain their " in " with the Allies, they pledged Ray Read, a verbose, bubbling English transfer student. And Daily music critic John McFie was a Phi Chi too!

The rest of the time, they sat around and bragged about their new wallpaper, their new chairs, their new couches, and so on. Socially minded, the Phi Dexes had fun at a big Homecoming party at the Leamington f all quarter and at several stag parties at the house. Leisure time, when they had it, was filled with incessant card games — the favorites being whist, poker, and hearts. Also popular were the frequent jam sessions with the phonograph. The Phi Dexes had to spend a lot of time with their gals as most of them were go- ing steady. The active chapter wasn ' t very large this year and so alums Spike Linner, Dick Anderson, Bob Doerge, and Ray Reichert moved into the house to help keep things lively. And they did have fun, too! Active members this quarter included: James Berscheid, Robert John Faust, David Harries, W. E. Hegstrom, George Paulson, William Trumm, and Roman Zweber. Faculty members of Phi Delta Chi were Gustav Bachman, F. K. Butters, Earl Fischer, Ole Gisvold, C. V. Netz, Charles Rogers, Taito Soine, and Frederick WuUing.

Phi Rho Sigma Professional medicine 317 Union Street Southeast University of Chicago, 1890 Minnesota Theta Tau, 1905 To lower the student-faculty barrier, the custom of informal bi-weekly dinners was continued. At these affairs, the profs and the Phi Rhos get together for conversation on economics, sociol- ogy, and — well, just talk. The fellows discovered that the profes- sors were only human.

' f : ft t f ft I f . f. % Past 169 Phi Delta The members of Phi Deha were kept plenty busy during the first part of the year what with a pro- longed series of rushing parties. After all of the rushing events were out of the way, the active members gave a picnic on the Mississippi River banks for their newly acquired pledges. It was a blue jean affair and the gals all carried little brown paper bags filled with things along the food line. This great entertaining of the pledges did not last very long, however — much to their sorrow. The sixth annual Founder ' s Day banquet was held during the fall quarter at the Leamington Hotel and the pledges really did a colossal job of provid- ing the necessary entertainment. The last meeting before vacation the gals got together for a festive Christmas party at which they exchanged many a gift and everybody went home oh-so-very-happy about it all. The Phi Deltas didn ' t seem to have enough gaiety during the fall quarter, so early in January they had a theater party at the Lyceum. It was in honor of the new initiates and from all reports they did en- joy " Ramshackle Inn. " Professional business 1 1 10 Fifth Street Southeast University of Minnesota, 1938 The business meetings were held every Monday night and were proceeded by dinner at Bryan ' s Tea Room. The Phi Deltas did not have their own house but they rented the entire downstairs of a private home for their Monday night get-togethers. Several faculty members were invited to dinner, among them Dean and Mrs. Koselka. Later in the quarter the alums and the active chapter had a joint meet- ing with Miss Donaldson and Miss Poison as guest speakers. The pledges provided all of the entertain- ment and whipped up some good food for the re- freshments for the members. Ah, for the easy life of an active! The members of Phi Delta really went in for din- ner parties in a big way — during the spring quarter, under the sponsorship of Inter-Pro, the sorority had an exchange dinner with Alpha Delta Theta. Members of Phi Delta included: Jane Adams, Peggy Barker, Marilyn Barnett, Betty Bohmert, Norma Bradley, Vivian Carlson, Margaret Foley, Glennes Gunhus, Betty Ann Heinrich, Mary Jo Holm, Elsie Kartarik, Doris Laine, Lois Martin, Mary Beth Mee, Joan Murray, Mary O ' Keefe, Irene Ortman, Bernice Page, Kyle Petersen, Donna Peterson, Mary Lou Prendergast, Lois Quinehan, Joyce Raiter, Eileen Rogge, Janet Simons, Bema- dine Stiegel, Jane Strigel, Barbara Weidenfeller, and iMary Youngquist.

Phi Upsilon Omicron To carry out one of Phi Upsilon Omicrons main purposes, the promotion of home economics, the so- rority sponsored three professional open meetings during the year. During fall quarter a representa- tive of the Minneapolis Gas Light Company spoke on the opportunities for home ec majors in the busi- ness world. Another meeting was held winter quar- ter with Omicron Nu, honorary home ec sorority. The girls really had a chance to put their training into practice since the main professional project of the year was to teach a cooking class at Pillsbury Settlement House. The class was composed of girls ten to twelve years of age. Each member of Phi Upsilon Omicron took it upon herself twice dur- ing the quarter to help the girls at the settlement house whip up a good meal. Phi U ' s gave a recognition tea fall quarter for all home economic seniors, juniors, and third-quarter sophomores who had an honor point ratio of 1.5 or above. The tea was held in the Fireplace Room of the Home Economics Building and faculty mem- bers were invited. Other social events included a tea for graduate and transfer students, the purpose of which was to promote friendship among graduates, transfers, and regular students. During spring quarter the tradi- tional Cap and Gown Day breakfast was served to all the seniors in home economics. Founders ' Day was celebrated February 10 with a banquet in the Junior Ballroom at Coffman Union. This occasion has always been quite an affair be- cause the Minnesota chapter of Phi Upsilon Omi- cron is the oldest of the 29 chapters in the United States. The principal speaker at the dinner this year was a Phi U alumna, recently returned to Minne- sota from Hawaii, who told the girls about the be- ginning of the war and how it had affected the life on the islands. On the Phi Upsilon Omicron roster this year were: Olene Bolstad, Edna Marie Burrill, Phyllis Carlson, Lois Dennstedt, iMary Engelhart, Audrey French, Jeanette Grant, Jean Griebenow, Elizabeth Hemmersbaugh, Lorene Holl, Jean Holmgren, Edith Klammer, Karolynn Knauf, Audrey Kraus, Lois Lynch, Alargaret Maland, Ruth Mandell, Elea- nor Mayne, Mary Mehlin, Jean A4orkassel, Mary Musburger, Ilene Naley, Marilyn Noper, Borghild Onstad, Virginia Paulson, Phyllis Shannon, Doris Swinborne, Gloria Trantanella, Shirley Trantan- ella, Shirley Trovatten, and Kathryn Weesner.

In fact, they started the fun last spring when they had a wiener roast for the seniors down by Minnehaha Falls. Naturally it rained, but the girls didn ' t mind, especially the seniors who were presented with silver sugar spoons engraved with the letters of Pi Delta Nu. Two seniors, who had been married shortly before, were also presented with gifts — silver plates, for them, also engraved. During the summer, the girls held a houseparty out at Forest Lake, complete with all of the usual inconveniences. For instance, there were three beds in the cottage, and eleven girls, but then — they really didn ' t mind sleeping on the floor! Fall quarter started with rushing parties and in- cluded Halloween and Christmas parties for the actives only. The Pi Delta Nu candidate for Home- coming Queen, Betty Ordahl, won first prize for selling the most buttons, and copped herself a $50 war bond as a prize. During Christmas vacation, they worked with the Inter-Pro council and sponsored a party at the Professional science University of Missouri, 1921 Minnesota Beta, 1925 Wells Memorial Settlement House for the children there. The pledges planned a Valentine party for the actives winter quarter. And then there was the ill-fated pajama party. Seems when the hostess got home on the afternoon of the party, she discovered that the water main in front of her house had broken and nary a drop of water was to be had. So the party was called off, but two weeks later it went off according to schedule. Other social events included the initiation dinner when the girls to be initiated gave a skit entitled " The Life of a Pi Delta Nu Pledge. " After seeing it, the actives decided that maybe the gals hadn ' t enjoyed the hazing as much as they thought they had. Spring quarter they gave a luncheon for their mothers. Pi Delta Nu ' s project for the year was getting their scrapbook up to date and tracking down alums. Members this year were: Virginia Counter, Jeanne Crosley, Rita Curtio, Elaine Daughenbaugh, Catherine Evertz, Lorraine Gonyea, Ruth Halvor- son, Lorna Henderson, Jean Hugos, Betty John- ston, Lucille Lindgren, Dorthey Loritz, Carol Nel- son, Connie Olson, Betty Ordahl, Phyllis Sather, Grace Spees, Betty Stuber, Colleen Sundry, Mari- lyn Tucker, and Jane Wilsey.

Theta Sigma Phi Theta Sigs were active in publications, as would be expected. Daily Editor Gerry Sohle was a Theta Sig and so were other Daily big guns like Geri Hoffner and Jeanne Mack. Gloria Dickson slaved away on the business staff, Pat Maloney worked and worked for WLB, and Louise Smith did some copy-writing for the Gopher. Theta Sig was one of the most active of the pro- fessional sororities. Big project of the year was the traditional J-Day banquet, when the journalism professors and students got together to play awhile. The students presented skits kidding the faculty and the faculty responded with take-offs on the stu- dents. Winter quarter the gals put on a Dogwatch which served as a Meet-the-Faculty night. And then there was the gala luncheon at the Nicollet after fall quarter pledging — complete with cock- tails and the gala Gay Nineties Review. Of course, there were troubles — things like pub- licity for the Dogwatch. Chairman Nora Boyd will never forget the afternoon she and two of her co- horts barked over the public address system in an effort to entice sophomore reporting students into buying tickets. But the highlight of the year came when the girls entertained visiting newspaperwomen from South America. As the guests didn ' t know much English and the girls ' knowledge of Spanish was limited to courses i through 4, sign language came into wide use. They had fun watching alum Betta Ann McGinn try to explain that she had danced one summer in Alexico City. Pride of the chapter was Rose Ettesvold whose father was chosen the typical midwest farmer. Rose shared an apartment with Harriet Schilling which Theta Sigs found very handy for cram sessions and parties. During what was left of their time, Theta Sigs assisted the journalism faculty at meetings and con- ventions. They passed out cokes at the annual high school journalism convention and did other good deeds. Theta Sigma Phi is both an honorary and profes- sional journalism sorority. Active this year were: Nora Boyd, Evelyn Storberg Buetow, Gloria Dick- son, Rose Ettesvold, Geri Hoffner, Jeanne Mack, Pat iMaloney, Pat McGowan, Harriet Schilling, Louise Smith, Gerry Sohle, Jean Sommer, Kather- ine Stickney, and Helen Wenberg.

PsI Omega Professional dentistry 1829 University Avenue Southeast Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, 1892 Minnesota Zeta Kappa, 1918 During the past year Psi Omega had a most active and inspiring time. By the end of spring quarter the Psi O ' s had walked off with the Intramural championships in bowling, track, and basketball. The Psi O Quartet appeared at the Varsity Show and numerous other campus and city functions — in fact, they made an overseas broadcast. The Psi Omegas carried on extensive social activities of wide variety. Entertained at 1829 University avenue have been most of the sororities and the dental hygienists. Summer quarter found the Psi Omegas and their dates golfing and swimming before their dinner dance at the Hotel del Otero.

Page 175 Theta Tau Despite the drastic effects of the local draft board, Theta Tau made a valiant stand and man- aged to survive another year of war and the man- power shortage. A few of the old time members were still around, but the greatest percentage of names on the roll call belonged to Navy men. Weekly business meetings were held at the house — some of the members got around to coming and again some of the members did not. The general trend of events at these meetings was an engineer- ing discussion — only these did not last long and the next thing the boys knew they were in a serious poker game. So the year rolled past and so did the dice. One, and only one, social event was on the calen- dar for the fall quarter — a Founder ' s Day banquet which was held at the YMCA. However, winter quarter the boys of Theta Tau went out for social life with a bit more enthusiasm — at least they went out for it. x long about the nineteenth of February a most gay and successful dance was given at the Leamington Hotel. After that event many a gal sat around wondering why the Theta Taus limited Professional engineering 324 W alnut Street Southeast University of Minnesota, 1904 themselves to one dance during the quarter. Really must have been quite a party! Of course, the Theta Taus turned out in full force at both the Inter-Pro and the Tri-Tech dances which were held later in the year. The fraternity went in for athletics in a moderate fashion, but they had some good material and as a result, ended up with a fair average. The whole chapter entered the Intramural basketball games and brought home the second place award. Carl Selmer helped the Minnesota football team out of many a tight spot and Richard Evans did his part on the swimming team. And so Theta Tau carried on throughout the year under the leadership of Delbert Collinson, re- gent; Frank Peters, vice regent; Willis Lutz, secre- tary; Frederick Teske, treasurer; and Donald Wil- fahrt, marshal. Bill Ruene was Theta Tau ' s repre- sentative on the Inter-Pro Council. Members included: John Beavens, Remus Bretoi, George Burton, Delbert Collinson, Thomas Conroy, Chester Dekko, Lloyd Duscha, James Frakes, Louis Huset, Willis Jennings, Willis Lutz, Theodore Mo- ravec, Joseph iMorgan, Frank Peters, Herman Pe- ters, Robert Rosene, ' illiam Ruene, Carl Selmer, Frederick Teske, Robert Touhey, Williard West- phal, and Donald Wilfahrt.

Page 176 XI Psi Phi Xi Psi Phi, a purely professional dental fraternity, carried on in high style this past year, under the able advisorship of Dr. Frans Larson. Weekly busi- ness meetings were held every Monday noon in the Union, and about twice a month large alumni din- ners were on the schedule. The alums, dentists in the Twin Cities, really turned out in full force for those get-togethers, and both students and alumni felt that the meetings were a good thing. The dents saw to it that their reputation as party boys did not lag during the year. Every quarter was filled with some type of gay social life. Fall quarter found the boys whooping it up in Wood- ruff Hall in Saint Paul — and from all reports the event was of the less tame variety. Along about February 8, the Xi Psi Phis left their dates behind and stumbled down to the Radisson Hotel for a Founder ' s Day stag dinner. During the spring quar- ter the party-loving dents threw a huge annual dance — and with all the gay trimmings included in the deal. The Xi Psi Phis were proud of the fact that they took part in a good share of the intramural sports. However, they were not too proud of the fact that they did not bring home any of the coveted IM championships. It seems that they did wind up with one prize — a keg of beer — but the game involved was purely ad-libbed. But in spite of all these outside activities, the group kept up with their serious study of dentistry. Xi Psi Phi could be classed with the really big- time professional fraternities what with chapters all over the United States and in Canada as well. As a matter of fact, it was the first dental fraternity organized on an international basis, the boys proudly related. On the never-to-be-forgotten list were Jimmy Jensen and Al Liedl who did their share in keeping the members entertained — each in his own manner. Jensen spent countless hours plucking away at the old guitar and Liedl was responsible for many of the laughs around the house. By all reports Al was the funniest man in the world — in the opinion of the Xi Psi Phis. Members included: Bob Baker, Douglas Bong, Harry Buetow, Spencer Burrington, Richard Cooper, Alvin Davis, George Geist, Stuart Hag- lund, James Jensen, Robert Johnson, William John- son, John Koch, James Larson, Alphonso Liedl, John Peterson, Philip Samuelson, Clayton Swanson, Howard Swanson, and Charles Waldron.

B usiness W omen s Club In spite of the fact that speakers were hard to get and the boy friends were always coming home to upset plans, the Business Women ' s Club carried on a full program this year. First on the list of activities was the membership tea held fall quarter in the Union. Later on, they held a dinner meeting at which Vetta Goldstein, assistant professor of home economics, spoke on architecture and interior decorating. One of the highlights of fall quarter was the scavenger hunt which was held at the Kappa Delta house. On the list of things to find were many odd articles, including a dead mouse. Nobody thought that this one would be taken seriously, but some bright souls went to work and accumulated three of them. It ' s rumored that one of them was " talked out " of the lab in Millard Hall. Winter quarter there were two more dinner meetings. A-Irs. Konrad Reisner, a German refugee, spoke at one of them, telling of her experiences in a concentration camp. In the spring, the Business Women ' s Club had their traditional banquet for alumni and graduating seniors. This year the girls worked hard, reviving the old Business School Day. It was held spring quarter and included a coffee hour, a faculty -student bowl- ing match, and a banquet for students and alumni in the Union. The business women held meetings twice a month and got together at other times in their club room in the basement of Vincent Hall. This room came in handy for lunches, naps, and the constant bridge games. And for studying too, of course! The Business Women ' s Club advisor, Miss Helen Connoyer, left for Washington this year and so they were advised by Mrs. Margaret Bentson. Members were: Jane Adams, Marian Austin, Peggy Barker, Marilyn Barnett, Lorraine Bennett, Betty Bohment, Norma Bradley, Marjorie Brandt, Vivian Carlson, Ann Curr an, Norma deRubeis, Helen DeVries, Mary Alice Dietrich, Jane Erickson, Margaret Foley, Helen Gomsrud, Glennis Gunhus, Ruth Anne Haker, Gita Handlousky, Betty Ann Heinrich, Mary Jo Holm, Inez Karibalis, Elsie Kartarik, Betty Krueger, Doris Laine, Betty Latick, Louise Lindblad, Lois Martin, Mary Beth Mee, Delores Merchant, Virginia Mogg, Charlotte Nelson, Mary O ' Keefe, Marian Olson, Bernice Page, Marion Parker, Joan Patten, Helen Paulson, Kyle Petersen, Mary Jane Petersen, Donna Peterson, Virginia Peterson, Donna Piche, Mary Lou Prendcrgast, Jane Rademacher, Joyce Raiter, Muriel Reuben, Pat Richards, Eileen Rogge, Betty Jane Shaughnessy, Idelle Sher, Joyce Snow, Dorothy Sogn, Maalfried Solberg, Frances Sorg, Lily Steinberg, Bernadine Stiegel, Jane Strigel, Adele Walker, Barbara Wei- denfeller, Mary Youngquist, and Sylviette Yugend.

' amma Deiti Gamma Delta held meetings every other Friday this year— sometimes in the YAdCA and sometimes at the Amigo Club. In addition, they managed to squeeze in lots of social activities. The Mothers Club sponsored smorgasbords for the chapter every quarter. These were also held either at the Amigo Club or at Mrs. Bryan ' s. Food, the home cooked variety, was donated by the tender-hearted mothers, so everyone had plenty to eat. Members of Gamma Delta played at a roller skating party fall quarter and at a tobogganing party winter quarter, and had a gay time at both affairs. And then there was their big annual ban- quet on February 13, which was held in the Union. Extra-special was the vesper service Christmas party, when Lorraine King played a harp solo. Lorraine was the guest artist with the symphony at concert winter quarter. Most members of Gamma Delta worked in other activities. For instance, there was Laura Mae Ber- dan, who bought pencils and cokes in her job as office manager for the Daily business staff. Also outstanding was Ann Saggau, who slaved away up Lutheran organization University of Minnesota, 1935 in the Homecoming office getting ready for the big week-end.

The main purpose of the sorority was to promote friendships among the girls on campus and they really went in for parties in a big way. During the fall quarter Kappa Kappa Lambda celebrated its twenty-third birthday with an elaborate Founder ' s Day banquet. Along about the same time of the year the members donned blue jeans and took off for a hayride. Just to keep themselves busy during the winter quarter the members of Kappa Kappa Lambda or- ganized a Mothers ' Club which since that time has proved very successful. Shortly before the Christ- mas vacation the children from the Lutheran Friends Society were entertained like royalty at a festive dinner. The Kappa Kappa Lambdas had a good time playing Santa Claus to children who in turn went home mighty happy. By the time spring quarter rolled around the girls were all set for the annual house party which was held this year at Lake Aiinnetonka. From all reports this was another success to be chalked up on Lutheran sorority University of Minnesota, 1921 the social record of Kappa Kappa Lambda. The members stopped long enough to catch their breath and to decide that they had not had enough fun for one year. Whereupon they threw a huge formal dance late in the spring quarter — that too was quite a gay, gay affair. During the month of April the Kappa Kappa Lambdas were more than busy what with the open- ing of the new Lutheran Student house. Everybody turned out for the cheerful open house on the sec- ond of April. Since that time the headquarters of the sorority have been located at 1813 University. The members of Kappa Kappa Lambda were: Grace Anderson, Rosemary Bentson, Corrine Carl- son, Betty Christiansen, Jeanne Dahl, Donna Dal- quist, Janet Dressier, Marian Erickson, Jean Gart- land, Marjorie Golie, Helen Gomsrud, Violet Hal- len, Alice Hansen, Marge Hersleth, Mary Lou Hes- sel, Paula Hjortsberg, Eunice Ingman, Ethel Israel- son, Audrey Johnson, Helen Johnson, Virginia Jordahl, Lolly Leithe, Mary Long, Lorraine Lund- blad, Katy Markhus, Doris Mattie, Bette Mindrum, Marjorie Mindrum, Virginia Mogg, Norma Nelson, Audrey Olson, Kathryn Olson, Ann Rank, Susan Ringoen, Lorene Silcher, Juliet Starheim, Adele Stone, Lorraine Sunnarborg, Betty Swart, and Ann Young. Page 182 Masquers The members of Minnesota Masquers were so busy during the fall quarter whipping together the Varsity Show that they didn ' t have time to pro- duce any plays. Everybody remembered the suc- cess of the Varsity Show — thanks to the very able direction of Audrey Kiekenapp. The Masquers worked day and night in the preparation of the show, but the result was well worth all the struggle. The A4asquers more than made up for lost produc- tion time — winter quarter they turned out " La Lacomiera. " In fact, it was so successful that it ran for three nights. Later in the year the group spon- sored " There Is Always Juliet " at the Womans Club in Minneapolis. The last quarter of the year the iMasquers took life easy — and produced one three-act play. As a side line project and for practical experi- ence many of the members of the group went to several of the Saint Paul and Minneapolis high schools to do the lighting and make-up work for the plays produced by the high school students. Meetings were on the schedule for every Sunday evening at the Theatre or at the home of some member of the Masquers. What was more to the point — everybody appeared for the business get- togethers and really got things accomplished. The Masquers were well represented in many other campus organizations. Their own president. Richard Spear, was a member of the Union Board. Corinne Holt didn ' t seem to have enough to do in Masquers so she held down the job of president of both Zeta Phi Eta and of the National Collegiate Players. Just as if these positions weren ' t enough to keep her more than busy, she found time to work with Dr. Frank Whiting on " Huckleberry Finn. " As a special interest project Norma Jean W anvig took it upon herself to d irect the French play that was given during the spring quarter. The rest of the Masquers directed children to the special matinees held often during the year. No definite predictions could be made, but such names as Corinne Holt, Gwendelyn Cerney, and Grace Krause may some day be in lights on Broad- way. The members of the Minnesota iMasquers in- cluded: T. Owen Andrus, Gwendelyn Cerney, Lillian Ericsson, Gloria Feickert, Lorraine Flesher, Gordon Handevidt, Marvin Hannibal, Corinne Holt, Audrey Kiekenapp, Grace Krause, Mary Lou Leonard, Joan Lundeen, Jack Mezirow, Esther Ol- son, Vivienne Rice, Richard Spear, and Norma Wanvig.

Page 183 LSA The biggest event of the year as far as the Lu- theran Students Association was concerned was the gala opening of the Lutheran Student house at 1 8 1 3 University Avenue on the second of April. The organization celebrated the occasion with a huge open house — which was quite a success. Another activity along the social line was the " Ashram " held early in the fall quarter. This event was a unique thing for any religious group in that it was an edu- cational and religious retreat. The " Ashram, " which took place fall quarter, was such a success that a repeat performance was held during the winter quarter at Camp Ihduhapi. Along with the not-too- serious discussions the members of the Lutheran Students Association found plenty of time for ski- ing and playing in the snow. Still another social activity was the mass attendance of the members of the organization at the Metropolitan Opera — ' twas a most formal affair. In addition to the regular Sunday afternoon meetings. Cabinet pancake suppers were held sev- eral times each month. Between the mouthfuls of food the members discussed the weighty problems faced by the Lutheran Students Association. During the school year three outstanding pro- grams were held. An all-student musical talent program was given early in the f U quarter. At the next get-together the members listened to a talk THE LSA CABINET meets every two weeks to discuss projects and make plans for new activities during the year. given by Professor George Stephenson of the his- tory department.

Republican Club Even though Governor Thomas Dewey didn ' t win the presidential election, the University Re- publican Club had a successful year and took an active part in politics — even though some of the members couldn ' t vote! When Governor Dewey stepped off the train in Minneapolis October 24, he was met by a delega- tion from the Club. The group rode in a decorated car in the parade and, in the evening, they went as a body to hear the Governor ' s speech. President Saralou Mather and a delegation from the Club also met Governor Earl Warren of Cali- fornia when he was on his speaking tour and showed him through the Union. The Republicans took part in the big campus rally on November i when Democrat Hubert Humphrey and Republican Desmond Pratt debated issues. The straw vote at this rally gave the Re- publicans a clear victory of 168 to 128 — indicating that the Club got its members there. Social events included a big party at the St. Paul Hotel on election night. It was a gay party despite election results, and quite a few people didn ' t make their appointments for the Gopher picture the next day!

PaSe 185 Veterans Club With an enrollment of more than 300 World War II veterans, the University of Minnesota had a larger number of veterans than any university in the United States. In the fall quarter, 1943, there were approximately 20 veterans on the campus, and at the beginning of fall quarter, 1944, there were more than 300 registered. Of this total number, 52 belonged to the Veterans Club which had its be- ginning in the fall of 1943. The Veterans Club, still a very new organization, carried on throughout the year under the leadership of Thomas Peterson, commander. Other officers of the group were Robert Stenger, vice commander; Richard Murphy, adjutant; Stan King, treasurer; and Paul Qualy, sergeant-at-arms. According to the members of the Veterans Club themselves, they were a very conservative organiza- tion — so, they spent many an hour slaving over the books, and gave a few parties and friendly get- togethers in various and sundry places — more fre- quently the latter. The social life of the year began with an outing during the fall quarter. This event was sponsored by the YMCA and was held at Camp Ihduhapi. Winter quarter the boys really took life easy, but come spring — back into circulation went the members of the Veterans Club. Along about the first of April they did themselves up big at the formal dance — and from all reports the event was far more than an ordinary success.

Two of the most outstanding speakers were from the University — President Walter Coffey and Bernie Biemian. The Veterans Club was more than well repre- sented in campus activities. For instance — Bob Baker, Bob Rydholm, and Dick Butler had a hand in almost every type of University organization. Frank Ryan had the distinction of being the first JUST BEFORE the special meeting begins. Bob Rydholm, Bob Stenger, Bernie Bierman, and Maurice Woolf take time off for a slight chat about the veterans and their problems. i veteran to graduate from Law school — not only did he graduate, but he was admitted to the Minne- sota Bar. Throughout the year the Veterans Club worked in close cooperation with the advisors — Harry J. Burtis, Leigh Harden, and Maurice Woolf. Be- tween these three men were divided the problems of all the veterans on the campus. Each professor said that the problems of the veteran came to the front more often as the number of returning serv- icemen increased. Mr. Burtis, Mr. Harden, and Dr. Woolf did the very best possible to help the vet- erans.

Most of the training took place at the University Airport which was near New Brighton. A clubroom was located very conveniently. The really outstanding feature of the Club was the " Dawn Patrol. " Several times each quarter four or five cub planes were flown in loose formation from the University airport to Saint Cloud. Flying Club members included: Joseph Debord, Violet De- bord, Karl Doeringsfeld, Grace Emery, Helen Gomsrud, Jay Groves, Lorraine Hammell, Hazel Henriei, Gloria Johnson, Jean Kusnerek, Lucy Luck, George Moore, Harriet Schmitt, Mary Spencer, Colleen Sundry, Ruth Svendsen, Laurie Tiala, Lloyd Toberg, and Barbara Visscher. International Club Sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment for In- ternational Peace, the International Relations Club, in turn, sponsored campus discussions on foreign affairs.

" Fall quarter brought an unexpectedly large number of fennale students to campus, and they spent most of their first week trudging after elusive " Rooms for Girls " signs. Sanford Hall was returned to the University by the Army and promptly filled. Comstock Hall also had its walls bulging from inmates. The cadet nurse program stretched the housing capacities of Powell, Miller, and General Hospitals. Campus males, with Pioneer Hall used by the Navy, found refuge in private homes, co-ops, and some fraternity houses. The Students ' Co-op, alias the Amigo Club, housed men in co-operative style — every resident a stockholder. We envied those who had come early, avoided the rush, and were housed. Let ' s just see what residences did this year . . . Page 190 STUDENTS anxious to live on cannpus fill the office of the Housing Bureau, especially during the fall quarter. Mrs. Helen Croft, director of the Bureau, discusses the housing facilities with students and tells them of the possible openings. Girls are often put on the waiting list for Comstock and Sanford Halls, and placed in rooming houses for the time being. Housing Bureau After years of efficient silent service, the Hous- ing Bureau came into the hmelight this year and the community was at last made aware of the diffi- culties of housing so many people. Due to the problems of wartime inconveniences, many Univer- sity students had to be housed in sub-standard habi- tations. Airs. Helen Croft, director of the Student Hous- ing Bureau, said, " This is a full-time job. " The Stu- dent Housing Bureau ' s main duty was to assist in locating living facilities for students, employees, and faculty members. This job included many major tasks. The Hous- ing Bureau prepared lists of available rooms, and issued information about cooperative cottages, dormitories, and rooming houses. They also took it upon themselves to check that each student was living in an approved building, and that all disputes between householders and students were settled correctly. The service was free to anyone who wanted to make use of it. The major problem that the Student Housing Bureau dealt with during the past year was to find approved rooms for the cadet nurses and service- men ' s wives. The housing problem assumed serious proportions last fall due to the large increase in University enrollment. A possible solution that was considered was to rent rooms on or near the campus to University students only, but this step was not necessary. The Bureau did feel, however, that the housing conditions on this campus were no worse than those on other wartime campuses. Because of the acute housing problem on the campus this year, almost everyone became vitally interested in the situation and wanted to see every student adequately housed. The campus Progres- sive Party had housing as one of the main planks of its platform, and did a great deal of investigation of rooming house conditions. Another campus group stirred into action by the housing situation was the Veterans Club. They opposed a bill pending in the legislature to erect an office building as a memorial to the veterans, sug- gesting that the memorial be something useful to a greater number of people, such as a hospital or a dormitory for University students. The Housing Bureau is located in 1 1 8 Administra- tion Building. All students, faculty members, and employees of the University may use its facilities. Page 191 Comstock Hall COMSTOCK COUNCIL members Eldena Eilers, Ann Hamilton, Mar- leen Bergren, Lorraine Baker, Ruth Wolverton, Ann Saggau, Barbara King, and Shirley Mansfeldt rush off for a meeting. Comstock Hall Half of Comstock ' s 378 residents could stretch themselves this year without kicking a roommate in the face, due to the dormitory ' s semi-reconver- sion to a pre-war basis. But Comstock was still far from its original peace time self — double-decker beds were much in evidence in a number of the rooms, bus boys were scarce, and Mrs. Blanche Doran, head dietician, worked hard to juggle ration points satisfactorily. To Mrs. Leora Cassiday, who directed not only Comstock but all women ' s residences on the cam- pus, placing girls in Comstock last fall from an ap- plication list of 1200 was a " real nightmare. " The result was a waiting list all out of proportion. The social program was planned with an eye to the acute shortage of what makes a girl ' s life inter- esting, but nevertheless, Comstock managed to put over an informal dance during fall quarter and a successful winter quarter semi-formal. A Hallow- een hayride, pajama party, skating party, numerous separate corridor gatherings, ar)d a Winter Week- End at " Uncle John ' s " removed the danger threat- ened by " all work and no play. " Comstock demonstrated its athletic prowess by winning the championship of both the WAA and Page 192 Independent League volleyball tournaments. Inter- domi bowling teams were strong throughout the year, and there was participation in basketball and kittenball. Directly responsible for rooms being cleaned well once each quarter were the open-open houses on which occasions men were allowed to visit girls in their rooms. The fellows always looked a trifle oversized under Comstock ' s low ceilings, but they were usually impres sed with the compactness and modernism of the dormitory. As a special feature of the Christmas open-open house, the Comstock chorus and orchestra gave a concert. Every Monday night, long lines formed outside of head counselor Theda Hagenah ' s room to await trial by the judiciary committee, the most neces- sary, most sincere, as well as most disliked commit- tee at Comstock. Here, before a tribunal of solemn faces, guilty co-eds waited to explain why twelve o ' clock (and even two o ' clock on week-ends) was too early to come in. And here they received pen- alties for their tardiness. This year, for the first time, the judiciary committee met every week so that the girls had a chance to defend themselves instead of merely receiving notice of arbitrary pun- ishment. The year went smoothly under the leadership of Eldena Filers, president; Dorothy Pietila, vice- president; and Ann Hamilton, secretary. The ex- ecutive committee of the Comstock Council also included heads of committees. " EVERY NIGHT about this time " — Phyl Parker, Midge Spooner, Kath- leen Lovett, and Katie Busse get together before retiring. In the lower picture, Mrs. Leora Cassiday smiles at a boy friend ' s picture. DORM PRESIDENT Dena Eilers greets the crowd at a Comstock pajama party — where the elite meet to greet — and eat! This was the first of Comstock ' s many social events held for the purpose of get- ting the 400 residents acquainted with each other. Page 193 LODGERS at Sanford eai their meals family style — all for the pur- pose of making first year students feel more at home. Tables are small enough to permit group conversation. Sanford Hall Girls came into their own again this year when 274 freshmen women moved back into Sanford Hall just before school started. With the departure of the ASTP students who lived there last year, every trace of Army occupation disappeared and the rooms were once again filled with such feminine things as sweaters, bobbie socks, and perfume bot- tles. Everyone seemed to be curious to see just what the inside of Sanford looked like, so the girls started the year off with an open house during Homecom- ing Week-end, inviting parents, servicemen, and others who were " just interested. " It was such a success that another open house was held later in the year. Assistant director of women ' s residences and di- rector of Sanford was Mrs. Grace C. Nelson. She was aided by graduate student counselors who acted as chaperones and helped the girls solve some of their many problems. Under the system of self- government, a judiciary committee to enforce the dorm rules was elected by the girls. The Sanford Council, led by Carol Holm, took charge of recreational and social activities. They organized skating and horseback riding parties, hikes, sleighrides, and even basketball and football Sanford Hall Page 194 SANFORD COUNCIL: Standing: Nancy Olds, Virsinia Irgens, Chris Rueter, Joanne Mehne. On Couch: Lois Lindsay, Carol Holm, lone Page, Gertrude Bednorr, The Sanford Council sponsored and coordi- nated all dormitory activities. games. All the girls had to do was to show interest in an activity, and if it were at all possible, a group was formed. Some of the residents who were especially inter- ested in journalism prepared and edited a weekly house organ called the " Sanford Scribe. " Editor Sally Churchill claimed that the dorm was absolute bedlam on the nights before the paper came out. Greatly appreciated by the girls were the evening snacks served every once in a while at lo p. m. They claimed that these lunches made them much more efficient in their studying! Another little con- venience was the Sanford library which lent out newspapers, magazines, and light novels. The biggest social affair of the year, as far as the girls were concerned, was the joint Comstock- Sanford formal. dance at the Leamington Hotel in January. Another highlight was the Halloween party which was strictly for the ferns. Everyone had a wonderful time, especially when the coun- selors entertained with a hilarious skit. After wear- ing themselves out doing square dances, the weary Sanfordites settled down to drinking cokes and eating popcorn for the rest of the evening. The girls held a county fair during fall quarter which was most successful. Gayly decorated booths, a fishing pond, and side shows were very much in evidence. Other social events included the traditional East-West Party in February, when both sides of the dorm competed for the best stunts and prizes; and the all-dorm birthday party, with everyone celebrating birthdays at once.

The girls rotate the various chores involved in the meals. Co-op Houses American tradition demanded that a street called Beacon be lined with notable dwellings. Minneapo- lis, being a patriotic American city, planted all the cooperative cottages there. The twelve houses lodged 148 women who stretched their budgets with a share-the-work and shoulder-the-upkeep philosophy. The enterprise grew to include houses on Washington, Harvard, and Union Streets, but still they all congregated at the " board " in 523 Bea- con. In the dining room the intricate division of labor, supervised by dining room hostess Evelyn Hager Vrtacnik got the tables set, the meals served, and the dishes washed with little more than an extra half-hour of everyone ' s time. They had fun while working, too. The rooms of the cottages truly become the castles of their occupants, for no one needed to sup- press her flair for self-expression in the decoration of her room. Any number of rooms had pastel walls and bright draperies which could have graced the pages of an interior decorating journal. In addition to house-keeping, the residents found time to throw parties. Once a week a faculty guest came to dinner and stayed for informal talk after- ward. They gave a party for those just turned 21, SPENDING A QUIET EVENING in their room are Phyllis Stukke, Mar- joric Youngquist, Teena Bruich, and Maethel Deeg.

NEW ADDI- TION to Powell Hall is being supervised by Annette Arneson, Betty Freeman, and Kathryn Haglin. Powell Mall Hospital duty 42 hours a week plus academic work was a big assignment, but the nurses loved it and had fun besides. Nursing assignments gave them operating room duty (frequently an all night job), a six- week rotation in the psychiatric ward (interns and orderlies were within earshot for difficult cases), public health duty in the Twin Cities, and a sojourn at Glen Lake Sanatorium. There was plenty of atmosphere in the nursing school: crisp, rustling, white and blue uniforms, clean shoes — rush and hustle, but silence. The United States Cadet Corps increased its en- rollment so much that a new dormitory was neces- sary. Housewarming plans for this building were being made before school was out, although it wasn ' t to be ready until late summer. When the rest of the students were home at Christmas time, there was no vacation for the nurses on duty, so they planned their own celebrations. These included a big get together to decorate trees in the main lounge and a more formal Christmas party with amusing presents for all. Most famous of their holiday traditions was their Christmas morn- ing caroling. The nurses started at five o ' clock in the morning and went through the hospital singing carols for the patients and later claimed that they enjoyed it as much as the patients! Page 197 1 klH STUDYING and writing letters in their room at General Hospital are Marie Renner and Shirley Bowers, while Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy look on warily. General Hospital Sleepy-eyed General Hospital nurses foggily be- gan their day ' s routine at 6 a.m. to the tune of wildly clanging alarm clocks. With the shortage of nurses even shorter this year, and the armed forces claiming all but five of the senior cadets, work was strenuous and overtime lengthy for the student nurses. The influx of cadet nurses was so great that five new floors had to be added to the General Hospital Nurses Home. The girls could hardly get used to the silence again after weeks of noisy sawing, ham- mering, and riveting. However, they were most thankful for the addition, which alleviated the shortage of rooms. Even the older part of the build- ing was redecorated practically beyond recognition at this time. Another innovation this year was the monthly publication of " P.R.N., " which, when translated, means " As Necessary. " It contained hospital news as well as current gossip of interest to the General Hospital girls. Despite the nurses ' heavy schedules. General ' s social life strode blithely forward. Impromptu pa- jama parties were all the more enjoyable with their revised record library which included a variety of classic, semi-classic, and swing music. A bridge club was formed, with an instructor to conduct it " Ac- cording to Hoyle, " and helped to fill in those all- too-frequent quiet evenings at home. The girls went in for athletics, too, carrying off the inter-hospital baseball championship last sum- mer and later participating in the basketball finals. They also bowled at the YWCA to keep their figures trim. Toys were bought from the proceeds of a silver tea and given to the younger patients in the con- tagion ward for Christmas. They also started work on wall murals for one of the larger wards in the hospital. All in all, it was a very busy year. CHORUS made up of General Hospital nurses gets ready to burst into song.

First there were several all-day picnics, then hayrides, followed by skating parties, and finally just plain ordinary parties. Miss Myrtle Gagnon, in her capacities as social director and director of residences at Miller, organ- ized the social and recreational activities of the stu- dents. In a little more serious vein, interest groups were formed. The most popular of these groups AROUND THE PIANO in one of their " off " moments are Leone Drappo, Lynette Hjerpe, Pat Wright, Mary Anderson, Lucille Rowell, and Shirley Ofstie.

Relatives of the nurses were probably pleasantly surprised with many an original creation. iMany of the nurses blessed with angel-like voices formed a glee club. The group first appeared pub- licly December 5 at a banquet given by the mem- bers of the Minnesota Hospital Association at the Radisson Hotel. A library committee was organized under the chairmanship of Lois Aiartins. Books in the medical library were catalogued following instruction in library methods by a local librarian. Students as- sumed complete responsibility for library supervi- sion. Every student had the opportunity to direct the library for one evening. A second library of books for recreational reading was organized. Many new books were purchased through Book Club memberships. The sub-council of NSGA, with Helen Hatlelid at its head, was especially active in student affairs this year. House rules were revised, and student committees were appointed to handle disciplinary problems. 100 per cent cooperation of the student group was evidenced by the Big Sister Organization headed by Frances Engesather. They directed a very success- ful orientation program, climaxed by the capping ceremony. I Page 199 Pi loneer Mall WOLFING on the Union steps are three V-12 ' s and three girls. It isn ' t quite clear who ' s wolfing who, but it looks like fun. Things like this happen in the spring. " Barracks " was what the boys in V-12, Naval ROTC, and ASTP called Pioneer Hall. To the de- light of nine-tenths of the students, the coats of Navy blue or khaki were still on campus in 1945. Signs of military life were noticeable from one side of the campus to the other, although most of it centered around Pioneer. Rows of Navy hats adorned many a booth at the " V, " indicating that the Navy had arrived to have coffee, chat, and make a general review of the women in the place. The V-12 ' s and Naval ROTC ' s (the latter called Xrotcy ' s in campus jargon) had a rugged schedule with which to keep up. There were dire conse- quences in store for those who didn ' t keep up to par, so all the bovs were quite eager. They studied hard, but played just as hard when they had an op- portunity. For the most part, the V-12 ' s were engineering students who dwelt in a world of geometric designs and shde rules. Also in the barracks were a few V-12 pre-meds and pre-dents. A versatile lot, they held dances, entered into intramural sports events, and organized the groovy V-12 Band. Such methods of relaxation were a fine way to offset the CHOW TIME is not the social hour of the day for the V-12 ' s.

Page 200 bookworn complex which could easily have devel- oped as a result of their scholarly life. The Naval ROTC battalion stationed at Pioneer Hall was composed of three companies, each headed by a company commander. The battalion commander was supreme, while the three com- pany commanders were next in line. Nrotcy ' s spent between 27 and 31 hours each week in classrooms, on the drill field, and in physical training classes. (The last mentioned item has been called no end of other names.) It must have been the calisthenics that put such a spring into the fellows ' steps. Work- ing on the theory that these men would be put on active duty immediately upon graduation, the bat- talion at Pioneer was self-disciplined and self-ad- ministered. The Nrotcy ' s kept Pioneer Hall telephone booths filled as they lined up their dates for the Dream Drag Dance during winter quarter. It was a formal ball, much to the delight of University girls who thought that formals, like the dodo, were extinct. Out of the galaxy of glamorous coeds there, Rita x nn Rotering of Delta Gamma was officially lab- eled the Navy Dream Drag. The Radisson Hotel, at which the- dance was held, came through it all very well — with no mars on its walls or reputation. (One of the results of self-discipline, no doubt.) CHECKING OUT their coats after an eventful evening at some event- ful dance are Frank Bertelson, Colmin Boice, and Kay Ingebrightsen, V-12 ' s stationed at Pioneer. AT THE SIXTH NAVY BALL, Bob Larson, Skipper of Anchor and Chain, and John Dablow, Master of Ceremonies, look on as Rohland Thomsen, Battalion Commander, presents Rita Ann Rotering with a bouquet. By choosing her Dream Drag, the boys felt that she was the most attractive girl present, except for their respective dates. The Navy Ball is the highlight of the NROTC social season.

The boys salute, take the diploma, and shake the hand of their CO. The V-I2 Band ' s contribution to the evening was a repertoire of mellow tunes and solid jive. Again this year, the Red Cross sponsored a Christmas party for the servicemen stationed at Pio- neer Hall, and again it was most successful. In addi- tion to the Yuletide atmosphere provided by the Red Cross in the form of Christmas presents for all, a number of singers and dancers presented a " allreet " floor show. Needless to say, it was given a hearty reception — as were the refreshments that followed. The V-12 Band was on hand at this party, too. Plebe Day — a tradition in the Navy carried over from Annapolis — was held this year about a month before graduation. On that great day, the tables were completely turned. For twenty-four hours, the seniors (first classmen) and the freshmen (fourth classmen) changed places, and then the fun began. Proud seniors snapped to attention and braced against the wall at the command of the once-humble plebes. At dinner, the seniors ' table etiquette was scrutinized by the freshmen who avidly sought a chance to catch a senior off-guard. Should a senior, in an unpleasant mood, have failed to obey a plebe ' s command, he got the " thumbs down " signal, and ate the rest of his chow in lonely solitude — beneath the table! Seniors usually had some " housework " to do on Plebe Day, too. Any menial labor to be done was given to them. However, the plebes ' fun couldn ' t last forever, and they hated to see the evening sun go down at the end of that heavenly 24 hours. Another time when the underclassmen got a chance to show the seniors what they thought of them was on the day of the great Plebe Stag. Seniors and staff officers, humbly resigned to their fate, sat by helplessly and watched the freshmen ex- hibit their ideas of what the seniors and staff offi- cers were really like. ' Twas claimed to be a most enlightening affair by those seniors bold enough to attend the festivities. Special sports events were popular with the Navy groups at Pioneer — those who survived claimed that their skill and endurance were in- creased immeasurably after physical fitness classes. Amateur boxing matches, aptly nicknamed " smok- ers, " were held in the field house. It was the V-12 ' s against the Nrotcy ' s, and oddly enough, the matches Page 202 TOP: Mrs. S.

Other sports events in- cluded intramural baseball and basketball games. In addition to the Dream Drag Dance, probably the biggest NROTC social event during the year, there were two dinner dances at the Commodore given by the seniors. Another time the battalion took its choice of campus beauties to an informal dance at the iMarigold, where a gay time was had by all. About the other parties, let it suffice to say that all of them were right up to Navy par! ASTP boys felt that the bulletin board in the company room of Pioneer was an absolute " must. " Usually the only feature was a well folded note with the name of a GI on it, but now and then their attention was attracted by such a well-phrased notice as the following: " Sorority wants five men for a sleigh ride. They must be between 20 and 25, and not under six feet tall. " On one such occasion a Charge of Quarters had written: " Fellows, this is really good. Twelve men are sought for a Hallow- een party. They ' re really knockouts. Everyone a beautiful blonde. Sign below for an evening of hilarity and beauty. " The mess hall " rat race " was another feature for the Army boys. About three times a week, the line for food extended from the counter through the lengthy mess hall and wound up in the company room. It was generally called the " rat race " because soldiers, reluctant to wait for food, dashed out of their 1 2: 30 p. m. classes and rushed along the streets in order to be first in line. They madly tossed books, coats, and other excess baggage on their beds and dashed downstairs to the line. But if " they also serve who only stand and wait, " these fellows were doing their bit for their country. Navy officers for the groups stationed at Pioneer were: Captain J. W. Tuthill, Lieutenant Com- mander C. A. Walker, Jr., Lieutenant Commander T. O. Hasbrouch, Lieutenant W. A. Reinhard, Lieutenant J. Leicht, Lieutenant J. H. Ritter, Lieu- tenant J. D. Pickard, Lieutenant George C. Bliss, Lieutenant junior grade F. W. Patrick, Lieutenant junior grade R. H. Treselle, and Lieutenant junior grade Harold Simpson. Army officers were Colonel Harry L. King, Cap- tain J. S. Harney, Captain P. M. Schroeder, Lieu- tenant John R. Weddle, and Lieutenant Milton Rotenberg. I Page 203 ASTP REVIEWS on the second floor of the Armory.

From 6: 30 a.m. reveille to 1 1:00 p.m. bed check, the Japanese language students were on the go continually — just ask their Com- pany Commander, Captain Goodeze. The boys had long, hard days preparing them- selves for the important work for which they were training. They attended classes up to seven hours a day, studying not only their major subject, Jap- anese, but also Japanese history, world geography, gym, and, strange as it may seem, English. But Sat- urday night and Sunday was a different story. It was free time, and much of it was spent at the YiMCA on campus. In fact, three soldiers from Shevlin, Frank Jordan, Joseph Hartley, and Her- man Ward were on the YMCA cabinet. Shevlin also boasted of its contributions to the winning ASTU basketball team, namely, Schuyler Jenks, Robert Beihler, Travis Boggs, Stanley Pil- shaw, and Herb Fisher. Other soldiers went in for wrestling and formed matches between each other. Musically-minded soldiers joined University music organizations. There was Joe Duke of the Univer- sity Chorus, James Taylor of the University Sym- phony, and Michael Bernkops who played in the University Band. Ralph Greenhouse, who played the cello in the University Symphony, was com- monly called " cha-iro-no-hana " or the " Little Brown Flower " because he was the " spittin ' image of Mayor La Guardia. " Shevlin Hall boys really seemed to enjoy their program at the University. In fact, they thought it would have been perfect, what with comfortable beds, a good cafeteria, and fine social opportunities, if they hadn ' t had to study so hard! According to Cadet Commander George Cadre, howev er, the unit was pretty successful scholastically, too. Since most of the fellows were just out of high school, it was difficult at first to adjust to their heavy schedule. Page 204 I f.

Greek organizations have their own administrative bodies — Pan-Hel for the sororities and Interfraternity Council for the fraternities. Publications are advised and influenced by the Board of Publications. And nurses have something to say through the NSGA. These government groups are almost all-student in composition, with faculty members advising. And the students, for some strange reason, are known as leaders. For a glimpse of the leaders in action, let ' s have a look at Government at Minnesota. Page 214 LEAVING THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING tosether for a change are Ray yamamoto, George Risty, Barbara Clark, and Theron Johnson. Dean of Students E. G. Williamson, that nnan who made Minnesota famous with his plan for or- ganization of a student ' affairs office under one dean, was one of the busiest men on the campus. Not only did he keep a watchful eye on the six bureaus in the Dean of Students office, but he also served on many campus committees. Directly under Dean Williamson was the Stu- dent Counseling Bureau headed by Gordon An- derson; the Student Activities Bureau, with Theron Johnson directing, and Barbara Clark as his assistant; the Bureau of Loans and Scholar- ships under George Risty ' s guidance; the Bureau of Foreign Students headed by Ray Yamamoto; the Housing Bureau, under Mrs. hHelen Croft; and the Speech Clinic headed by Bryng Bryngleson. George Risty, director of loans and scholar- ships, aided many students with their financial problems. Some who would not have been able to do so otherwise were able to continue their education because of Mr. Risty ' s expert advice. Theron Johnson and Barbara Clark in the Ac- tivities Bureau had their hands full keeping the student activities out of trouble. In fact, the job was so big that the details were attended to by student assistants, Joyce Fritter, Ruth Cole Nash, and James Borreson. They were kept busy help- ing with the hundreds of interviews, telephone calls, and letters that came to the Bureau each month. But the staff had a philosophy. " Have faith in student affairs, for students can handle things efficiently and wisely if they are given a chance. " This theory kept most of the people DEAN E. G. WILLIAMSON has his hands full with student housing plans. Page 215 COUNCIL OFFICE COMMITTEE members: Standins: Carol Haugen, Eliiabeth Reynolds, Sybil Stephens.

While the students and faculty criticized the existing system of activities, the Students Activities Bureau made surveys and investigations in an attempt to improve conditions by more thoroughly understanding them. Chief gavel-rapper on the All-U Council this year was President Jean Danaher, whose greatest problem was luring the members away from their tasty Wednesday night dinners in the Union Cafe- teria so that weekly meetings could start as sched- uled. A second problem was stopping the ha- rangues of Raeder Larson, who, after getting a job with the Minnesota Legislature, felt that all of their procedures could well be applied to the Council. Slaving away as chairman of the harried by-laws committee was Vice President Louise Miller, who always seemed to have either another term paper to write or a speech to make. Easy going Jim Hazen kept a close check on Council expenditures while Patty McKeon, as secretary, kept the office staff in line. Soft-spoken Dick Tregilgas left the Council fall quarter when he found out that Med School wasn ' t the cinch he had thought it was. Bob Ryd- holm was appointed to fill the vacancy and raised the Council ' s " prestige " no end by putting out a publicity pamphlet to let the students know why GINNy PAULSON hangs another event on another day on the social calendar. Such is the work of keeping social activities straight. COUNCIL MEMBERS Louise Miller, Patty McKeon, Marge Eustis, Barb Olmsted, Nancy Way, Jean Danaher, Jim Hazen.

Barb OInnsted felt the call of the East and left for New York to try her hand at advertising. Carol Ringstrom took her place and fought a losing battle trying to out-talk the " senator from Minne sota. " Barb Barton took a deep interest in student spirit, and was responsible for the setting up of the Rally Squad; and Marion hlolbrook spent nnost of her time in James Lombard ' s office trying to see that famous man and find out if the stu- dents couldn ' t have some say in the selection of Convocation programs. Along with Marion, the knittingest members of the Council were Marion Harvey and Ginny Paulson from the " always for- saken " Ag campus. Ryd always said he would re- sign if another member started knitting — but he never did. The wit of the Council and the " pride " of the Dental School was Roger Fredsall, who was gov- ernment chairman on the side; and Cherry Cedar- leaf worked hard at the problem of setting up or- ganizations for independent women. Marge Eus- tis spent most of her time going to committee meetings, and Mae A nnexton was responsible for Rog Fredsall, Marion Harvey, May Annexton, Bob Rydholm, Marion Holbrook, Raeder Larson, and Cherry Cedarleaf Page 217 RITA ANN ROTERING models an ideal outfit for skiing while Gloria Swanson describes what she ' s wearing.

Nancy Way broke all kinds of tradition by getting engaged to a medi- cal student, and kept tab on the Post-War Con- ference at the same time. Right along with everyone else, the Union Board of Governors had a shortage of men this year. The ratio of men to women members was five to ten, as compared with the pre-war ratio of nine to six. Labor shortages, mounting cost of mainte- nance, and lack of materials with which to repair and redecorate were just a few of the wartime headaches with which the Union Board was faced during 1944-45. In fact, they liked to reminisce over their " bout with the broom, " when all loyal Board members donned blue jeans and sweat shirts to clean the office last fall. First woman president of the Union Board was Joy Nissen, who ruled the fifteen student mem- bers, elected at large, and five faculty members, appointed by the president of the University. An executive committee, consisting of Union Direc- tor G. Ray Higgins and two program consultants, Alan W. Giles and Margaret Nelson, helped to direct the work of the five standing committees composed of Board members. Beneath these corn- Page 218 sm ■WiHUUHRnm UNION BOARD members relax after a dinner meeting. Standing: E. B.

Seated: Ann Voung, mittees were 27 social committees made up from the general student body. Each member of the Board sponsored one or more social committees — appointed the chairman, acted as an adviser, and reported its activities to the Board. In this way, the social, recreational, and cultural pro- grams of the Union were under the direction of the students for whom they were given. " Co-ed Night " was a new activity sponsored by the Board this year. All women on campus were invited to spend their dateless Saturday nights, during fall quarter, and their dateless Fri- day nights, during winter quarter, in the Union. Bowling, billiards, card playing, and dancing were just a few of the diversions offered the frustrated co-eds. The Union Board began a new series of war mov- ies showing different branches of the service and their jobs in the war. The movies were free of charge. A series of faculty-student coffee hours was begun because so many students complained that they hardly knew their professors since they saw them only in class. Although the first coffee hour was for students and faculty members in all col- leges, those held later in the year were for sepa- rate colleges. Everyone agreed that the coffee and doughnuts served were most delicious. To give students a chance to try their skill in Sherm Cole, Saralou Mather, Burt Deason, Ginny Taylor, Kay Tobin, Ginny Butts, Joy Nissen, Estelle Hagen, Marian Ebeltoft, Margaret Nelson, Pat Maloney. leathercraft, woodwork, clay modeling, and sculp- turing, the Union Board made plans for a craft shop to be located in Room 50 of the Union. A recognition dinner for chairmen and mem- bers of committees and members of the Board was held spring quarter. Guests were presented with recognition keys for the work they had done during the year. The Board seemed to go all out for dances this UNION BOARD and Union Cabinet of Chairmen members don old clothes and pick up paint brushes to tackle the job of putting into condition the veranda furniture at the Union.

The Wednesday Twilight featured dancing to records, from 4 to 6 p.m., and the V-12 Band, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The Beginners Dance and Instruction by Al Wiklund was held Thursday eve- nings. One night last fall the Union Board invited members of the All-U Council to a wiener roast on the river bank. Under the light of a bright fall moon, the two top student government bodies of the University consumed numerous wieners, sang " old favorites, " and pledged undying friendship. ;4 Student MHCii Always ready to carry out a tradition, the Ag Student Council put on the Student-Faculty Re- ception and the Christmas Assembly fall quarter. At the Assembly, Leigh Harden, assistant to Dean Schmitz, was awarded the Little Red Oil Can which has been given annually to the person who has contributed the most outstanding service to the Ag Campus.

MAKING NEW PLANS with enthusiasm are Ag Student Council of- ficers Millicent Thorson, Shirley Trantanella, Jeanette Grant, and Clar- ence Olson. Something really ought to come out of this conference. With the acute manpower shortage, it was decided not to hold Foresters ' Day or Ag Royal Day separately, but to pool the efforts for an all- campus sports ' day and call it Winter Holiday. Sponsored by the Council, the Holiday started off January 27 with a bean feed at noon, and snow- shoe, log-sawing, pie-eating, and toboggan races in the afternoon. The great day was finished off with a sleigh ride and dance, called Winter Whirl, THE CIGARETTE SHORTAGE in the Ag Union is alleviated when Vic Clausen and Jeanette Grant lead a discussion on whether to sell three cigarettes for three cents or five cigarettes for four cents! Page 220 - - w at which Lyia Mary Worden, Gamma Omicron Beta ' s candidate, was crowned queen. But the Council had more serious work at hand, with its four main sub-committees doing overtime. They were the social co-ordinating committee, which put out the calendar of social activities for each quarter; the honor case commission, in charge of the honor system; the Board of Elec- tions and Eligibilities; and the Ag Intermediary Board, which was set up last year as a clearing house for curriculum problems. Chairmen of these sub-committees were Doris Neldner, Lois Denn- stedt, LyIa Mary Worden, and Audrey Krause, re- spectively. The annual tree planting ceremony held on Sen- ior Day on the Ag Campus brought to a close the work of the year for the Ag Student Council. Uppermost in the minds of all Ag Union Board members were the plans for the new Union to be built as soon as the war is over. In keeping with their motto, " No use letting grass grow under- foot, " they asked organizations to submit plans for the amount of space they thought they would need in the new building. This fall the Board began operating under a new constitution. It was drawn up by a constitutional AG UNION BOARD: Standing: Leigh Harden, Owen Hullberg, Harry Carskaden, Barbara Clark, Kathleen ieary, Howard Kernkamp, John Taylor, Hlldegard Nypan, Ray Higgins, Jeanette Grant, Margaret Shaddick.

Not the least of the Union Board ' s duties was forming policies concerning the use and mainte- nance of the Union. With the critical cigarette shortage, it became necessary to set up some EVERYONE GATHERS around the piano to give out with their best voice at the Ag Union songfest. With Miss Chapman at the piano, the students give their utmost attention to the songs.

It was also the Union Board ' s de- cision to require orders at the lunch counter to be written out in order to avoid the noon hour rush — they hoped! Ag Fun Fests once each quarter were a most successful Union Board activity. Students swann or played volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, or bridge in the Ag gym in the early part of the eve- ning, and danced to records from 10 to 12 p. m. Beginning activities rather meekly this year — partly because the election was held later than usual and partly because they were burdened with a large debt brought about by an unsuccessful dance given two years ago — the Cabinet of the Class of 1945 gradually developed confidence WINTER QUARTER GRADUATION BANQUET in the process of huge success. Sponsored jointly by the Senior Cabinet and the Union Board, the graduating seniors and their families and friends enjoy them- selves before going over to Northrop for the ceremonies. and turned into a most active group by the end of the year. Even before the Cabinet had a chance to elect its officers they were at work nnaking plans for fail quarter graduation activities. The members rallied around, however, and appointed Laura Mae Ber- dan and Saralou Mather to work with Virginia Tay- lor of the Union Board on the graduation banquet. Then the Cabinet felt that it had time to elect its officers — Dorothy McNeill, president; Roger Fredsall, vice president; Phyllis Wilkes, secretary; and Bob Beebe, treasurer. At the beginning of winter quarter, the Senior Cabinet started to worry about the Senior Prom, which was to be held May 26. Great questions such as: " Should it be formal? " " Can we afford a name band? " " hlow can we get senior girls to ask dates? " came up and were immediately turned over to George Rachie, Prom chairman, to solve for the moment. Other Senior Cabinet activities included selling announcements, under the direction of Nancy Critchett; Cap and Gown Day convocation speech by the president of the Cabinet; the Cauldron Ceremony, with Lois Peterson in charge; and as many senior banquets as there were graduations. The Senior Class was the only one of the classes SENIOR PROM GRAND MARCH is led by Roger Fredsall and Dorothy McNeill, Bob Beebe and Phyl Wilkes, George Rachie and Nancy Critchett, Kay Ingebrigtsen and Sally Bruno, and Bob Oemcke and Jean Trout.

And everybody thought that there was a shortage! to have a cabinet, since the All-U Council abol- ished the orsanization of the underclasses last year. The Senior Cabinet justified its existence by the fact that it carries on the business and ar- rangements for graduation activities. Fraternity row this year made a great leap toward regaining its pre-war complexion. Novem- ber found the Navy releasing houses used by the NROTC and the individual fraternities once again assuming control. After a week of frenzied house cleaning and moving, the chapters began to roll. Plaques, pictures, and rugs reappeared, as if by magic, along with house men whose lives had been blighted by absence from fraternity activi- ties. Formal rushing was brought back during fall quarter. The period began with the Interfraternity smoker, held in the Union during " Meet Minne- sota Night. " Following the smoker, fraternities opened their houses and hearts to the rushees while trying vainly to convince cooks that points really weren ' t important. Results were good, for later many freshmen scampered about campus, BACK ROW: Bill Huskins, Jer- ry Compton, Lew Reeve, Harry McCarthy, Dick Murphy, Fred Schletty, Murray Butts, John Harker.

Those beam- ing faces are too numerous to identify, so you ' ll have to hunt for yourself. Or were you in the Viking Room at the time? caressing shiny new pledge pins and crooning sweetheart songs. Over all fraternity activities stood the Inter- fraternity Council, governing body for academic fraternities. President of the Council was Murray Butts, Sigma Nu; Jim Borreson was administrative advisor to the group. Other officers were Lew Reeve, SAE, vice president; Herb Shane, Kappa Sig, treasurer; and Dick Murphy, Chi Psi, secre- tary. Under this leadership the Council accomplished a number of things which contributed to stabiliz- CLOCKWISE AROUND the circle are Council officers Herb Shane, secretary; Dick Murphy, treasurer; Lew Reeve, vice president; and Murray Butts, president. ing the position of fraternities on campus. Winter quarter found the new Council constitution adopted. Important among the additions to the old constitution were: first, the establishment of an Interfraternity Court, to be composed of three undergraduate and two graduate students, to act upon all disciplinary matters brought before the Council; second, the establishment of a definite house average, 1.25, which must be met each quarter by each member chapter; third, the incep- tion of the right to expel any member fraternity from campus for due cause with the consent of the Dean of Students and the Senate Committee on Student Affairs. These and other changes gave the Council more teeth and added to general fra- ternity strength. During the year Sigma Alpha Mu and Phi Ep- silon Pi joined the Council, bringing all academic fraternities for the first time under a single juris- diction. Socially the fraternities did all right, too. On December 9, the big Interfraternity Ball was held in the Radisson hlotel. Nat Towles ' fine colored band and the prospect of a large party brought dancers in droves. The droves added up nicely in the cash register, too, which rang raucously throughout the evening. The Interfraternity Council, however, had a few thorns in its bed of roses. The fall quarter rushing session previously mentioned was an energetic affair on the parts of the various fraternities, and the Council had a somewhat strenuous time re- straining the member fraternities from scalping Page 225 SIPPING COKES at the Interfraternity Ball soft drinic bar are Red Bauman, Eileen Beier, Dolly McQueen, and Ray Tharp.

Things came out in the wash, though, and the fraternities were strengthened by the influx of new talent. Homecoming night found most of the chapters settled in their houses again. Fine parties blos- somed all up and down the row. Doors of all houses were open, and a great amount of visiting was done. Those attending the parties weren ' t " in " until they had given their blessings to at least two or three other gatherings. All in all, the future of fraternities at Minnesota looked much brighter to everyone than it did a year ago. The Council presented a solid picture to other colleges whose fraternity systems are not so well established. Turn a sharp eye to the future, for fraternities are coming back! Under the direction of vivacious Dorothy Mc- Neill, the Panhellenic Council worked for the " wel- fare of each member sorority " through integration and co-operation. 1945 saw Pan-hiel carrying out ATTENDING an Alpha Phi rush party are Charlotte Hemberson, Nan Power, Gertrude Blumienlacher, Shirley Jenson, Prudence Whiffletree, Betty Wyman, Persis Robertson, Mary Doele, and Marge Boberg.

Having as its purpose the presentation of so- rority problems and aims to the new initiates, as well as getting everyone better acquainted, Greek Week opened with exchange dinners fol- lowed by discussion groups. Coke hour open houses were held later in the week with a repre- sentative from each chapter visiting other sorori- ties. The Week closed on the following Monday in the Union Ballroom with the first Panhellenic banquet since 1942. But Greek Week wasn ' t the only time that Pan- Hel was active. All through the year, the girls rushed madly about campus, hot on the trail of some activity. ' Instead of each chapter holding a tea for its housemother, the Council in October honored all nineteen housemothers at once at a tea. In November they got up enough nerve to in- vade the Dean of Students office for a conference on co-operation between the administration and sororities. General hints and bits of advice were given by actives at a Pan-hHel pledge meeting just before the annual pledge walk-out. In addition to regular sorority exchange dinners held throughout the yeaT, exchanges were made with dormitories. Page 227 Winter, Ellingson, Neale, Johnston, Woodruff, Krecklow.

Panhellenic gave six $50 scholarships to Univer- sity girls during the year. President McNeill re- vealed that although no restrictions were placed technically upon the sex of applicants, men have never invaded this domain! Not neglecting the war effort, Panhellenic spon- sored blood donations for the Red Cross in co- operation with SWECC. An average of 150 per- sons a week were found with the required pint of blood, and so did their bit. Although biood dona- tions were the only war activity sponsored by the Council, individual sororities conducted their own programs. And so Pan-He! spent another busy year. Its members supported drives, promoted sorority unity, made plans for next year, and never once discussed men officially! After several years of inactivity, the Interpro- fessional Sorority Council got back on its feet again during the spring of 1944 and began to make up for lost time immediately. The girls started social activities with a dance at the Columbia Chalet last spring. This year they played Santa Claus at Christmas with a party for settlement house children. When the Council constitution was first drawn up, eight professional sororities participated, and mapped out plans for the future. This year the group included eleven professional sororities: Al- pha Alpha Gamma, architecture; Alpha Kappa OFFICERS Dona Simpson, Virginia Counter, and Claire Ingemann of the Interprofessional Sorority Council get together at dinner before meet- ing . . .

Exchange dinners among the member sorori- ties were held frequently throughout the year, and once each quarter the council sponsored a dinner get-together in place of the regular meeting. In this way, members of the professional sororities were able to gather and discuss their mutual problems. In addition to its other activities, the Council took a poll among the members to find how they felt about an Interprofessional Sorority house, but decided to drop the idea for the present. Barbara Clark, Dean of Students office, and Ruth John- ston, Testing Bureau, were Council advisers. Official governing body of the Gopher, Daily, and Ski-U-Mah, the Board of Pub had the jobs of approving policies, electing editors and business managers, and approving staff members and sal- aries.

With the by-laws finally complete and the legality of Its existence firmly established, the Board spent a busy year seeing to It that publi- cations were editorially profound, as well as financially sound.

Highlight of the winter schedule of the Reli- gious Council was Brotherhood Week, with the emphasis on the World Day of Prayer, which is an annual occurrence on the third Sunday of Febru- ary. Dick Gebhardt was chairman this year. Rob- ert Johnson wrote the WLB radio script, " The Ne- gro in America, " for the World Day of Prayer program. Dr. Huntley Dupre, executive secretary of the World Students Service Fund, was guest speaker of both the Ag and Main Campus re- ligious groups. Palestine Night wound up the events of Brotherhood Week. Both the YWCA OFFICERS AND ADVISORS of the Religious Council are Carl Lundquist, advisor; Dick Gebhardt, treasurer; James Boran, advisor; Margaret Ann Peterson, president; Phyllis Broude, secretary. and the YMCA were active in planning of activi- ties of the Week. Religious Emphasis Week brought Dr. Edwin Espey, the national student director of the YMCA, to the Campus. He spent four days going to teas, coffee hours, and discussions. All the fra- ternities and sororities held discussions on " Re- ligion in the Life of a Student. " The Council sponsored a play entitled " The Human Link. " The money earned went to the World Student Service Fund. It was held in the YMCA and no one who came to see it was disappointed. Coffee hours seemed to be the fad on campus and the Religious Council, being up to the minute on everything, held one, too. The object in view was to get the professional and the regular coun- cils acquainted. The paid church workers who counseled the campus groups in the various de- nominations formed the professional council. Rep- resentatives from each group composed the Re- ligious Council. The groups represented on the Council were: Wesley Foundation, Northrop Club, Lutheran Students Association, Canterbury Club, New- man Club, Hillel Foundation, Westminster Club, YWCA, and YMCA. Page 232 g£i]VJD5 2) ' s ssoe Fresiman Praaa After long and deliberate thought, we decided that Service organizations are those which give service! Although we ' re utterly exhausted after such grueling mental strain, we ' d like to nanne a few of the service groups. AWS incorporates all women students and steers them into worthwhile activity, often under duress. Union activities are mostly services to those making use of Union facilities. SWECC exists to promote needed war work on campus. Foundation promotes University public relations and cajoles the alums. Last, but not least, come the publications. Everyone has heard of the Minnesota Daily — it ' s one door down from the GOPHER office. South of the GOPHER office is the Ski-U-Mah, a self-styled humor magazine which appears spasmodically. After the Skum comes a bearded publication known as the Technolog, which is shipped in by rail from Moline. If you doubt these things, make way for the Service section. Pasc 234 Whether as a playhouse, activities center, or dining hall, the Union was the liveliest place on campus. Students congregated there fronn the time they registered as bewildered freshmen until they said good-bye as proud graduates. All the way up from the commuters ' lunchroom and the bowling alleys in the basement to the Fine Arts Room and the Junior Ballroom on the third floor, students gathered at any hour of the day to meet their friends. Almost everyone has fond memories of cokes in the Gopherette, filling meals at the cafeteria, and grilled cheese sandwiches and malts at the Grille. Women, women, and more women became the main theme of Union activities this year. Empha- sis was placed on stag events and girls were given a chance to forget that there was a man shortage — at least for a while. The most obvious activity for women was the " Saturday Night for Women " at which most of the Union facilities were opened to the girls. This included a free line of bowling, billiards, card room entertainment, and refresh- ments. Anyone walking through the Balcony Lounge would have noticed that indoor river-banking was just as popular this year as before, but according to those who keep tab on such things, the popu- larity of the sport seems to have declined. Since MEMBERS of the Union Cabinet of Chairmen got together once a week in their office for bag lunch discussion meetings. Since they were all chairmen of one Union committee or another, they were re- lieved to hear that others had problems, too. the comfortable chairs and couches still remain, the decline has been attributed mainly to the campus man shortage. Those servicemen still left, however, kept up the old tradition! The job of running Union activities smoothly was left to the Union Cabinet of Chairmen, for- merly known as the Junior Union Board. Members of the Cabinet were chosen as committee chairmen by the Union Board of Governors. With an office all to themselves this year, they met for bag lunch meetings regularly and discussed their mutual DOWN THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW goes another ball at the Union Bowling alleys, tossed by a lithesome lass who discovered, along with other women on campus, how to keep in good form.

SATURDAY NIGHT DANCES were typical Union affairs. They were special in that each week the dance had a different theme — variety was the keynote. Everything from hobo night to formals were staged, and what ' s more, the committee has yet to have a failure! BELOW, the Union balcony lounge, which is far from the madding crowd that mills about in the main lounge. Far below, students enjoy the Music Listening HHours in the Terrace Room. problems. All of the committee chairmen aspired to be members of the Union Board in the future. The gameroom on main floor was a center of beginners ' bridge instruction and tournaments. Other card games continued to be popular, but none could compete because of the enthusiasm of the bridge fiends. Morning, noon, and night, co-eds and servicemen battled to see who would be the next to trump his partner ' s ace. " One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four, etc. " through the Lindy, rhumba, conga, and fox- trot went the beginners ' dance instruction. Classes met every Thursday afternoon in the Ballroom An- nex. Al Wiklund, dance instructor for the Union, taught the steps to beginners and explained intri- cate techniques to the more proficient members of the class. Other Union dances included Football Frolics, held during fall quarter after the football games; Saturday Night date dances; and late afternoon Twilights. Besides furnishing wonderful opportu- nities for practice, the numerous dances were a fine place for servicemen stationed on campus to take their dates — especially near the end of the month. Aside from publications and the YMCA, almost every campus activity had its headquarters in the Union. Next to the women ' s lounge on the second floor were the offices of two strictly women ' s ac- tivities — AWS and YWCA. Both organizations were renowned for their PO stuffing ability. Down Page 236 at the other end of the balcony were the offices of the Union Board, Union Cabinet of Chairmen, All-U Council, Minnesota Foundation for Student Public Relations, Interfraternity Council, SWECC, and one vacant office which was used as a general clearing house for Freshman Week and hlome- coming activities. Students using one of these of- fices could almost always be found in one of the other offices hotly discussing how to get more stu- dents interested in their activity. On the third floor were located the Panhellenic Council, Cos- mopolitan Club, Forum Board, and Veterans Club offices. These groups could always be counted upon to rush down a flight to discuss their prob- lems with the second floor activity members. COMMITTEE MEETINGS help to keep Union activities lively. Here the Sing connmittee, Beverly Lofthus, Helen Bjellaness, Warren Carter, Alice Ferrey, and Hugh Merritt, gets together for ideas. Other rooms on the second and third floors were used by various organizations, not fortunate enough to have offices of their own, for meetings. " Meeting changed from 343 to 346 Union " al- most became a password during the year, but everyone managed to find the right room sooner or later. SPLASH PARTIES in Cooke Hall were an unusual Union activity. Marge BaDour and Peg Leary keep the boys happy at one of the quarterly swimming parties. n y f?

After the retreat of a large part of the service units stationed on the campus, the Union began to look a little more like a student hangout in- stead of a USO. Regular students were once Pase 237 MORE BILLIARDS, to the left, this time with men involved.

Even the hours the Union was open were changed back to normal, after a year of the " Open Door " policy at almost any time of day or night. But students took advantage of the Union and enjoyed themselves. ;4 7{kco 4ctiMtce4 On Ag Campus it was said that " All roads lead to the Ag Union. " No wonder Doris Chapman, di- rector of the Union, spent so much time making sure that all organizations had a chance to make use of the Union facilities. Just to give the fellows a chance to realize that there were members of their own species still in existence, the downstairs lounge of the Ag Union was completely redecorated and tagged " FOR MEN ONLY " from I 1:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. And for the sake of students who objected to bag lunches of cold sandwiches, hot soup was added to the regular fountain menu, thus better prepar- ing them to face the cool Minnesota breezes. To keep the Union open for the use of more people, organizations were encouraged to hold their meetings in the lounge after 3:30 p.m. and in the evening, with reservations made in advance. Thus more people, such as Farm and hlome Week visitors, were able to enjoy the Ag Union. WITH ITS RIGID EATING MORES, the Ag Union seems to push girls into a corner. Here a group huddles in »n alcove remote from the forbidden territory, FOR MEN ONLY. The girls are Laverne Weicott, Lucile Nelson, Connie Sawyer, Mary Lou Mixell, and Peg Brown. Page 238 The Union held bi-weekly coffee hours, spon- sored by Hiidegard Nypan and Joyce Spear. A bridge tournannent sponsored by the Ag Union during fall quarter had no lack of contest- ants. Possibly this enthusiasm could have been caused by the fact that the prize carried off by Nancy Snnith and Jules Kubier was not just a package, but a whole carton, of cigarettes! 470S BANG! That was the way the Associated Women Students started out the year, with 2,000 new students attending the Campus Sister ' s Tea. With the program following the theme of the College Issue of Mademoiselle, the Tea attracted so many girls that not even the Union Ballroom was large enough to accommodate them. Luckily, Ann Bosanko and E. C. Colle had worked out an intricate registration system for the tea and realized well in advance that they would have to divide the mob into two groups. 1 ,000 of the girls came at 1:00 p.m. while the rest came at 3:30 p.m. Although the traditional receiving line was a wartime casualty, the freshmen met in THE AG UNION game room is a good refuge for people who want to play without going too far away.

Later the presidents of lead- ing organizations were introduced in a style show by Bobbie Robertson, while an obnoxious chorus sang derogatory rennarks about the -modeling queens. AWS activities for the freshmen didn ' t stop with the Campus Sister ' s tea, however. All fresh- men were interviewed and given specific informa- tion about organizations. These interviews were followed up by a Cram Session, in which a panel of bright upperclassmen, including Mary K. hlard- ing, Ginny Taylor, and Lyia Mae Anderson gave answers to important questions such as how to study and still have fun while attending the Uni- versity. After all that emphasis on the freshmen, AWS realized its obligation to the other women on campus and created many projects to attract up- perclassmen. The fall quarter marriage course fea- tured three lectures, by a psychologist, a minister, and a doctor. This project was put on by the Cap ' n Gown Council in the Museum of Natural His- tory, with the cooperation of the YMCA. Empha- sis in the winter quarter sequel to the marriage course was placed on the aspects of homemaking.

" President Katy Markhus spent a most busy year keeping up with all the various AWS activi- ties and trying to maintain an " A " average so she could graduate from University College. She was assisted by Feme Crispin, who served as vice president. All through the year AWS was forced to keep an eagle eye out for money in order to sponsor so many activities. First a candy sale was put on by Pinafore, the sophomore class council; then hlome- coming buttons were sold, and brought AWS the second prize in number of sales; Bib ' n Tucker, un- der the leadership of Lorraine Espeseth, sold Go- phers; Eunice hiaried and Marge Stevens of Tam O ' Shanter Council managed a most successful rummage sale; and Cap ' n Gown Council swelled the exchequer with exhibits of sterling silver. But all AWS work was not so serious. The Board and Councils had several gay parties. The AWS version of breakfast at Sardi ' s featured carrot, radish, and celery hats on every head, and — you guessed it! — the winner was presented with a real radish corsage as a prize.

The campus came through with bond purchases to the tune of $25,000. Special projects chairman Eleanor Colle went all out for making everyone aware of the need for Russian War Relief boxes. All campus organiza- tions were contacted, and as a result over 100 boxes were filled with everything from condensed milk to cigarettes. The AWS Board, too, was on a wartime basis. Anne Bosanko left for the WAC early in October, and Ginny Taylor followed her in January. Joyce Clark, the efficient office chairman, hopped on a plane to spend two weeks with her Navy man in San Francisco. But the Board didn ' t let such things stop their weekly meetings, which were sometimes held at noon and sometimes in the evening at the homes of Board members. Once each quarter the Board invaded Advisor Barbara Clark ' s apartment for a gay dinner meeting. They claim they accom- plished a lot, too.

At right is the entertainment for the Recognition Dinner. Carrying out AWS projects for the year took committee members and chairmen; therefore, during fall quarter class councils took over the co-chairmanships of projects. They drew their committee members from the famous " eager beaver " committee sheets (preference sheets for committee workers). But during winter quarter, after a combined Board-Council dinner meeting, a change was made, according to the democratic principles governing AWS. It was the decision of the group that co-chairmanships should vanish, and they were replaced by the allocation of big projects to the whole class council, while the smaller projects were taken care of by a single Council member and her committee members. Al- though this system was still in the experimental stage, no decision was made as to its success, but it seemed to be working quite well. National correspondence kept President Katy up in the air for several weeks hoping and plan- ning for the national AWS convention to be held in Minneapolis.

Then we ' ll show the campus that we ' re big — nationally! " Starting activities in a slightly different way this year, Ag AWS sponsored a get-acquainted hour for both fellows and girls, instead of the usual " Big Sister " party. Upperclassmen and faculty members turned out in large numbers to welcome new freshmen. Always interested in helping students adjust to campus life, Ag AWS gave another party and in- terviewed freshmen girls on their hobbles and spe- cial interests in activities. Social life on the Ag Campus was well taken care of by AWS officers Ann Thompson, presi- THAT SERIOUS LOOK could mean just one thing: " We owe some- body money, " say Audrey French, Ann Thompson, Jean Griebenow, and Edna Marie Burrill, Ag AWS officers.

They also did their bit for the war effort by sponsoring the War Bond Drive on Ag Campus and contributing work- ers for bandage rolling. The " Foundation for Student Public Relations, " more easily identified as the ex-Minnesota Foun- dation, made sweeping reorganizations this year under tfle leadership of President Barbara Maurin.

THE COMMITTEE IN CHARGE of sending out Dailies to servicemen are Bernice Page, Marilyn Nelson, Doris Schwani, Sally Scherven, and Joan Lowe. The original Minnesota Foundation was built upon a general basis with no definite assignments to the members of the Board. Now all has changed. It was decided that the activities for- merly sponsored by the Foundation as a whole should be divided. In this way, each person on the Board sponsored a certain function or phase of a function. But each person had to do more than be a mere sponsor. Besides supervising the committees, members had to make chairmanship recommenda- tions to other Board members, help appointed chairmen run their committees smoothly, and keep the Foundation Board up-to-date and informed about the activities of committees. Activities sponsored by the Foundation this year were many. Vice president Walt Carpenter kept his eye on Freshman Week; Eleanor Edward- son, secretary-treasurer of the Board, handled all off-campus activities, until winter quarter when Louisa Weatherby took over the job; Pat Maloney bossed the radio programs; and Katie Worrell kept tabs on all on-campus activities. Another FOUNDATION PRESIDENT Barbara Maurin takes time out to give the public a quick smile. Page 246 FOUNDATION BOARD members, Kate Weesner, Walt Carpenter, Eleanor Edwardson, Barbara Maurin, Katie Worrell, and Barbara Clark, hash over the problems of Minnesota public relations. The Board co- ordinated all activities of the group. winter quarter change was the appointment of Ruth Little to publicity sponsor. By far the gayest activity sponsored by Foun- dation this year was the Campus Carnival, which took the place of the once-annual Foundation Ball. There was side-show entertainment, a street dance, and — in true carnival spirit — conces- sions, set up by campus organizations. Along with its change in name and functions, the Board this year became more than a fund- raising body. Now it is chiefly a public relations bureau, intent upon promoting loyalty within the school. One of the finest things Foundation has done, according to President Barb, has been the establishment of a scholarship fund which has in- creased to $2,000 since 1941. NO, THEY ' RE NOT CRAZY!

Even the colored movies of University students may be traced back to the Foundation. sTosee " Student War Efforts Coordinating Council " was a large name for any organization, but since SWECC had charge of all campus war activities, the title was most fitting. Its duty was to make the University a strong participant in the war effort, as well as to make the campus more conscious of the war. With LyIa Mae Anderson as its guiding light, SWECC did everything from teach- ing boys how to roll bandages to sponsor- ing campus blood donating. Various campus organizations directed the specific activities of SWECC. AWS, in charge of Russian War Relief, set its goal at 200 boxes of mittens, sugar, soap, and towels. Another project of AWS was to keep current the Union service flag and the roster of Minnesota alums now in the service. »■ " It ' s Your War, " a series of six movies shown in the Union Ballroom, and the War Bulletin Board, which contained city, state, Page 248 PACKING OF BOXES for Russian War Relief is done by Barbara Jordan and two cohorts. The boxes contain cookies, candy, cigarettes, towels, warm gloves, and other articles. and national information pertaining to students in wartime, were sponsored by the Union Board. Military contacts were maintained by Minnesota Foundation of Student Public Relations which sent Dailies, Technologs, and Ski-U-Mahs to former Minnesota students. WAA ran the Greek War Relief Drive for an ur- gent collection of warm clothes, while the YWCA took over knitting sweaters and afghans for mili- tary use. In addition to this, hospital service at the University Hospital with a well trained coun- selor on duty, was also sponsored by the YWCA. The YMCA took care of letters written to former members now in the armed services.

Registration of Minnesota coeds for one or more of the nine Red Cross activities offered on the campus was January 24-26. The ultimate goal was that every girl on campus sign up for at least one course. Other organizations worked on smaller projects or contributed to the work of larger groups. The Panhellenic Council, for instance, worked through sororities in conducting a blood doning campaign. On the Ag Campus, the Student Council set up special committees to take care of the various STUDENTS INTERESTED in the Red Cross flocked to the Red Cross exhibit table in the main hall of the Union. There they picked up information about this organization and its worthy work. Page 249 projects. Activities sponsored by SWECC on nnain campus were done on a smaller scale on Ag Cam- pus. Last SWECC activity of the year was the Post- War Conference sponsored by the All-U Council. Also up SWECC ' s sleeve were Red Cross courses for summer quarter, such as Home Nursing, Nurses Aide, Motor Corps, and Canteen instruction. i Toe i Behind the door of 2 1 5 Union, many coeds bustled with activity under the direction of Nancy Reid and her YWCA cabinet.

Other interest projects included " Let ' s See the Town, " created for out-of-town coeds who wanted more than a speaking acquaintance with the Twin Cities. Camp counseling courses, handi- craft projects, and a glee club were activities de- signed to increase the range of interests of Univer- sity girls. Volunteer social work, instigated by the YWCA, spread throughout the campus. Settlement houses had the assistance of University girls in teaching, playing games with nursery children, and leading giris ' clubs. Other girls devoted afternoons or eve- nings relieving hospital shortage of help situations by carrying trays, delivering mail and flowers, and making charts. y girls contributed to the war effort in a great many ways.

The war service comnnittee ' s slogan for afghans donated to the Red Cross was " Knit a square everywhere. " Projects were often sponsored jointly with the YMCA. Together they fornned a Roonning House Council, designed to organize students living in these groups as the Panhellenic Council organized sororities. The intercultural commission congre- gated to discuss minority problems and to prac- tice racial equality. United Nations Festivals were also sponsored in conjunction with the YMCA. However, " all work and no play makes Jane a dull girl " didn ' t apply to YW girls, who may have worked hard, but had fun while doing it. " ifMe A stranger entering the YMCA this year would have had a most difficult time deciding where he was, for there were usually twice as many girls as boys around the place. However, returning veter- ans and ASTP ' s from Shevlin Hall began to join the y, and the situation was slightly relieved. Be- cause of these veterans, they felt strong enough to reactivate the Minnesota Commons Club, the only independent fraternity on campus.

Dick Sturges, vice president; Perry Copeland, sec- retary; and Jerry Ustruck, treasurer. Under these boys were numerous committees, all dealing with specific activities such as post-war plans and vet- erans, freshman programs, religious emphasis, public affairs, and military service. A bi-weekly paper was put out this year for the first time, with hHerbert Julien as the editor. Firelight dances proved to be most successful so- cial affairs. The propaganda spread before these dances was really true — the only light in the place was from the firelight. With more men than women present, the Valentine ' s Dance really had a claim to fame! And then there was the Snow Shuffle held in December with Ed Bossing and his orchestra. The Campus Chest swept the decks clean and started out anew this year, with John Taylor at the helm as president. After the " Back G.I. Joe Drive " last fall proved that either the students had failed the Chest or the Chest had failed the students, members accepted the latter viewpoint and decided on a new committee system and a whole new set of by-laws. They enthusiastically Page 253 CHEST MEMBERS: Standing: John Heller, Harriet Schaeffer, Ernest Heilman. Seated: Ann Duenbostle, Ann Young, F. John Taylor, Marge Eustis.

On hand this year to see that the Campus Chest was reorganized into an effective, campus-wide pro- gram were members Harriet Schaffer, Ann Duen- bostie, Edna Mae Snead, Ralph Wohlers, and Paul Williams. Marge Eustis, All-U Council sponsor, fought side-by-side with Campus Chest members to get things back on their old footing. Theron Johnson of the Bureau of Student Activities was executive secre- tary. Representing the faculty at Campus Chest meet- ings were Ernest hieilman, professor of accounting, and John hieller, assistant professor of classics. Leigh Harden, instructor and assistant to the dean of the College of Agriculture, resigned during the year to take over the Veterans Bureau. The reorganized and inspired Campus Chest hopes to bring all campus drives back under its jurisdiction once again. Freshman Week this year brought over 2,000 neo- phytes of the proverbial green to the University. This unexpected number, a 3 I per cent rise over 1 943, gave bundles of temporary woe to both the student planners of Freshman Week and the administration. Girls slept eight in a bed or sat forlornly on suitcases waiting for someone to erect a new dormitory. Things turned out all right in the end, ho wever, and the University began its seventy-sixth year with a committee composed entirely of women planning Page 254 FRESHM lri WEEK Q ( QU( MARY TEBERG, Freshnnan Week chairman.

The committee, under the chair- manship of Mary Teberg, spent the few odd mo- ments not employed preparing festivities of the week in comparing sun tans and discussing the horrible girl to boy ratio. Freshman Week opened on Saturday, Septem- ber 23, with the usual Freshman Camp at Ihduhapi. Aged seniors reported amazement at the number of representative freshmen.

Campers were recognized the next week by the suitcases under their eyes, as they arose at 5 a. m. on Monday to catch a train back to school. Ag leaders planning their part of Freshman Week were caught unaware by the large turnouts, and went scurrying for " STANDING ROOM ONLY " signs. The well atterided Ag Frosh Frisk had its program thrown out of gear when Bruce hiarding, Ag senior, needed only ten minutes of the allotted hour for the treasure hunt to find the hidden treasure, a box of candy cunningly placed in a tree. And there were so many students at the Ag Barn Dance that con ga lines were given up for fear of participants maiming those in adjoining lines. The Ag picnic held on the flats in back of the Ag Union took place under mechanical diffi- culties since repairs had just been started on the sewer running underneath the flats. Overflow crowds attended all the freshman ac- tivities held in Coffman Memorial Union. The Freshman Week committee ran out of pins, rib- bons, and song sheets long before they had planned. The large gathering at " Meet Minnesota Night, " scheduled for the women ' s lounge, had FEMALE LEADERS, E. C. Colle, Nancy Reid, Joy Nissen, Barbara Rob- ertson, and Ann Bosanko, become Mademoiselle smoothies at the Freshman Week Campus Sister ' s Tea.

Festivities started Friday, November 3, with the selection of Tri-Delt Barbara Nordstrom as Home- coming Queen. Queen Nordstrom was presented with a cup by Chairman Young between halves of the Minnesota-Northwestern game. This ceremony was accompanied by a private display featur- ing Queen Earl Mahachek and his zany associates. Queen Earl rode in dubious state around the track and then disrobed down to his cheerleading garb to the tune of " Strip Polka. " The Varsity Show, run by Dorothy Dugas, jammed Northrop to bursting. Campus talent was featured, augmented by Bob DeHaven as a jocose master of ceremonies and Bob Hewitt ' s band. Saturday night brought the dual dance in the Union. Fletcher Henderson blew flaming riffs in the Main Ballroom while Bob Hewitt swung out up- stairs in the Junior Ballroom. Another sardined throng watched the intermission introduction of Barbara Robertson, dance head, and other com- mittee participants. The entire Homecoming program featured huge numbers of enthusiasts.

Dean Everett Fraser reviews on the Dumbarton Oaks plan for the Liberals. Campus political parties began the season when the chairmen were elected sometime during fall quarter. As the competitive spirit gained mo- mentum, each chairman tried to get a head start on the other one. The Commonwealth Party began its second great year with an eight dollar debt held over from last year ' s campaign. Full of political pas- sion, the members completed the season with spirit and money. Chuck Bell, chairman, was re- sponsible for both the money and the spirit. He worked hard against time and tried to get all can- didates into office before he had to leave for the wars. The Progressive Party triumphed when it ex- posed the poor housing conditions of students. COMMONWEALTH LEADERS, Perry Copeland, Janet Miller, Bob Pill, Lib Koop, Dick Murphy, Chuck Bell, Carol Ringstrom, Sherm Cole, and Jane Cox smile at the prospect of a victorious election. PARTY CONVENTION for the Progressives was held in the Union to start off the campaign season with a large bang. With F. John Taylor at the helm, the enthusiasm of the group was at a peal as the new candidates were introduced. The candidates had been interviewed and selected by the party nominations committee, but still had to win the approval of the party as a whole. This issue victory was envied in the political cir- cles, because of its publicity value. F. John Tay- lor spent all his spare time trying to convince strong Comnnonwealth sororities they should turn Progressive. The rest of his time was spent find- ing " sure " candidates and digging up a platform. The cream of the current crop of campus lead- ers was brought together to discuss pertinent campus problems at Leaders ' Camps held by the All-U Council. Those awed by the appearance of these important personages were surprised to see how normal they looked while dashing around Camp Ihduhapi in blue jeans. Also amazed were faculty members, who reluctantly came to speak to the " leaders " and expected to waste their time, but returned to the campus singing the praises of " those interested students! " Everyone agreed that relations among organizations were much more friendly the week immediately follow- ing Leaders ' Camp.

Amazing as it may have seemed to some, the con- fusion of having senior activity cards, organiza- tion ' s work sheets, hundreds of candid pictures, and stray copy all piled up on top of Assistant Editor Jean Waite ' s desk gradually assumed some semblance of order and became a book. Real work on the Gopher began In the middle of July when Business Manager Carol Ringstrom and Editor Peg Maplesden journeyed to Chicago to discuss plans for the book with the engraver, as well as to have a fine time seeing the town with Phyl Kremer, 1944 Gopher editor. They returned to their offices in the basement of Murphy hiall and spent the rest of the summer making trial budgets and layouts. By the time school started " WHERE WILL IT COME FROM? " and " Where does it go? " are problems for Sherm Cole, Shirley Daniels, Leone King, and Ann Curran of the business staff. in the fall, staff heads had been chosen and every- thing was lined up and ready to go — they hoped! During Freshman Week and for a few weeks thereafter the Gopher office was filled with willing freshmen workers, anxious to round out their col- lege life by working on an activity. Everyone was a mite puzzled, however, about the 57 editorial staff workers who showed up right on time when the group picture was taken, but were conspicu- ously absent as heavy deadline dates came up! The fourteenth of every month was a hectic one for Jean Waite as she worked far into the night mounting pictures to sneak under the en- graving discount deadline. What perturbed her BUSINESS MANAGER Carol Ringstrom slaves over account books. ■jjaHJii was that " outsiders " never could understand why anyone wanted to start work on a yearbook be- fore March or April. When staff photographer Frances Ahem took Jean ' s picture, Jean actually broke the camera! Lucky Fran got a week ' s vaca- tion from her tasks while the camera was being fixed. Jean also loved crawling out of the window and by the business office window to " borrow " a few cokes from the carton Carol had cooling out- side her window.

Carol was usually delving into a bag of bakery goods at this point, and failed to notice the slight theft. During working hours she worried especially about advertising sales and where paper to print the Gopher was to come from, hier assistant, Louise Miller, became the pride of the office in November when she sold the first full-page ad to the Coca-Cola Company. Louise could always be counted on to don her black-rimmed harlequin glasses to type out a few late term papers. The business office actually looked clean after efficient Leone King became office manager. She and Sherm Cole, senior pictures manager and gen- eral office repair man, exchanged bag lunches dur- ing the noon hour. There were probably more visitors than workers in the office most of the time, but they undoubt- edly helped to raise the morale of the staff. Once in a while an unsuspecting copy writer such as Bob Rydholm found himself pushed into a corner at LO AL PHOTOGRAPHV STAFF MEMBERS, John Marker, Arline Steiner, and Jim Ginsberg, make with the artistic eye at another pic- ture — which must go to the engraver immediately, natch! the point of a pair of scissors and forced to cut out engraving proofs for Peg. And Chuck Swening- sen of the Daily occasionally read proof. Bubbling Dottie Thorp, office manager on the editorial side, blew into the office early in the morning to write lengthy instructions to her staff, only to return later in the day and bitterly do the work herself. hHer faithful staff, Ruth Miekoday, Orlean Antonson, Jane Chamberlain, and a few others, filed, typed, drew duplicate layouts, and checked spelling of names with the address book. Photography Editors Arline Steiner and John Marker spent half their time assigning pictures and the other half rushing around being in the pictures. (The back of their heads, of course!) John kept himself alive but lost twenty pounds by eating half of Peg ' s bag lunch every noon. Arline became engaged in December and actually passed candy at one of the weekly staff meetings.

Bob Fulton, Ray Tarleton, and others associated with various Murphy Hall publications floated in and out of the office at regular intervals to chat and bum cigarettes, but the deadly hush that set- tled over the headquarters around deadline time scared them away from a while. They returned, however, when they discovered that the only way to open coke bottles without an opener was to use the edge of a desk in Carol ' s sanctum. Ann Curran, accountant, and Loey Fakler, in charge of organizations, did more than their share by collecting money and handling business affairs in general. Nancy Critchett corralled all her friends and put on a whale of a book sales campaign. And Mary McClanahan, super - ad salesman, dropped in every few day demanding a check. Copy for ads sold by McClanahan was assembled by Donna Reasoner.

She started the year with a good-sized crew from last year: Kappy Gir- ton and Jeanne Mack took turns at the city desk; Barbie Olmsted and Michael James Harry Mc- Carthy split the copy desk work; and Rod McQuary and Chuck Sweningsen ran the sports office.

After a day or two, it was claimed by some neglectful fraternity, and the staff was rid of a source of constant con- sternation. Round, glowing Julius Duscha worked on the copy desk and turned in an irregular humor column when the spirit moved him.

WOMEN CITV EDITORS may sound a little queer, but Jeanne Mack and Kappy Girton did a fine job of ordering the reporting staff off to their assignments. the aerial. One day it fell from a precarious perch, and McQuary, undaunted by the possibility of its entrails falling out, picked it up and turned it on. But all it gave out with was Mozart, so " Si, " an ardent Tschaikowsky fan, had to drop it again to stop it. Lis Johnson, who often came out of the wom- en ' s office to lie on the copy desk while her nail varnish dried, presented the Daily with an object which lighted matches on demand. It was ru- mored, however, that it blew up just as the match shortage reached serious proportions. Connie Wurst ' s losing battle for the newsreel programs ranked among the Daily ' s most glorious crusades; while Pat McNary found her duties as military re- porter a bit too heavy when she had to appear as a witness at a military trial just because she hap- pened to be present at the Bridge military brawl. Being a bright girl, she forgot most of the details. And music reporter Kay Stickney committed a grave social error by smoking her first cigarette during the shortage. Round the rim of the copy desk were Alayne Roberts, whose parental connections with a cigar- ette firm helped the staff along; Alta Smith, who stood alone in seeing the point of the sports staff ' s jokes; and Jean Halverson and Mary Shou- weiler, who were ever silent in the face of dis- aster.

The sharp decrease in enrollment put such a hole in the budget that balancing it became a financial im- possibility. Betty Lou Bank started the year as office mana- ger, but eventually exchanged her nightmare of a job (charts and records) with Laura Mae Berdan, who had been in charge of salaries and supplies up to that time.

Page 268 A business staff party down at the shop in January was the highlight of the year. Lunch was served at Peg Ryan ' s ' house afterwards. In line with the general trend towards nnore de- partments and offices, a publicity bureau was started on the Daily. Its aim was to keep the pub- lic happy and acquainted with campus activities. Bev Berkovitz, was made head of the bureau, and launched it with a coffee-hour for representatives of campus organizations. Editorially, most memorable was the vigorous crusading spirit shown on the back page. While Gerry stuck firmly to her position " on the fence, " editorial director Geri Hoffner definitely pulled no punches in tackling such issues as the new Liberal group, the tasks of the new president, lighting in the library, veteran ' s tuition fees, and the Univer- sity ' s housing problem. Bob " Lightning " Kerner flashed into the edi- torial office about the time the housing campaign started swinging, and showed no signs of slowing down since then. Invaders of the back page of the Daily were hedge-haired, Danzig-born Lee Bond and tousle- headed, Oxford-born, Cambridge-bred John Mc- Fie. The presence of Lee, as book critic, during the growth of the Liberal group, inspired someone to splash red paint upon the walls of the office and label it, " Liberal hieadquarters. Journalists of the world, ignite! You have nothing to lose but your brains. " Besides beating out a music column and an occasional editorial, John enthusiastically took to reading copy down at the shop, ostensibly on the lookout for split infinitives. As he said, " You have to have good English in the Daily, on ac- count of because it ' s a college newspaper. " All these campaigns, and many more personal notes, took a beating in the Daily staff ' s contribu- tion to the annual " Dogwatch " party in the jour- nalism library — a skit entitled " Red Herring, " which gave a behind-the-scenes picture of what went on in the Daily ' s ivory sewer.

Steve Donohue, city editor in 1942-43, came back to the office while on leave from Texas, and showed himself still adept at his old job. Not sur- prising, when he told the staff that he worked behind a typewriter for the Army! One of the rousingest parties at the shop gave him a good send-off. Among the other parties was the one on Gerry ' s birthday. In spite of everything, the next day ' s Daily didn ' t have as much of a hangover as the staff! The Daily was put to bed for another year by journalism ' s future notables. The office felt that it had played its great part as the foundation, both architectural and spiritual, of Murphy Hall. Filling Rooms 13 and 14 Murphy hHall with cig- aret butts and crumpled copy paper was the Ski-U-Mah staff, headed by Marilyn Wolf, editor until she hauled off and got married at the end of fall quarter; Sue Sayle, editor for the rest of the year; and Jeanne Crahan, business manager. The humor magazine ' s greatest claim to fame seemed to be that it always sold out before regu- lar subscribers managed to come around and col- lect their copies. This brought nothing but dismay to the staff, as well as to the Board of Publica- tions, and left circulation manager Lois Peterson literally tearing out her hair. The Homecoming issue was so popular that the editor ' s own copy — the last one on hand — was filched from her desk. Fifteen cents and a polite " thank you " note were left in its place. After that disastrous experience, however, an extra 500 copies were ordered for the rest of the year, and the problem was pretty well solved.

In spite of the fact that women steered the magazine, subscriptions from servicemen, overseas and In the country, flooded the office, proving that the Skum hadn ' t lost its " Esquire " appeal. Part of the popularity might have been due to the curvacious pin-up girls which appeared in each is- sue. It might have been, too, that former Univer- sity men wanted to catch up on local grapevine- gossip, reproduced in the " Lowdown " column. One worried soldier sent a V-Mail letter from Eng- land, begging the " Lowdown " reporter to warn campus wolves away from the girl he ' d left be- hind. Local lads and lassies, less anxious to break into print, continually burst into the office wailing, " Please don ' t put in anything about me. I ' m sup- posed to be going steady with someone back home! " Bob Gordon, gag-man and wearer of Gien-plaid suits, worked as assistant editor and helped to de- cide which jokes should get into print and which ones should remain the exclusive pleasure of the Ski-U-Mah staff. Just the same, a few of the rarer jokes managed to sneak into the magazine, until University powers-that-be made their perennial threat to discontinue publication unless the maga- zine was cleaned up.

But innocent-appearing paper cement was occa- sionally smeared on the crackers and offered to strangers who wandered unwittingly into the sanc- tum. Despite difficulties brought on by sell-outs, late arrivals of the covers, printers ' labor shortages, ad- vertisers ' vacillations, and stolen typewriters later found in the offices of other publications, the business staff managed to see to it that the Ski- U-Mah not only broke even — an accomplish- ment in itself — but actually made a profit. ec utoia After going so far as to work overtime during the summer sessions and put out an issue, the Technolog staff started off with a bang and put out a silver anniversary issue in October in cele- bration of their twenty-fifth year of publication. Heading the larger-than-ever-before-Technolog staff were hHarry Brenner, editor, and Raymond Tarleton, business manager. When Ray left in January, Al France took over the job.

" On the business side, Winifred Ensdahl was office manaser, and the majority of magazine salesmen were girls (a clue to the large number of sales this year!). Great crises were faced by the Technolog this year. The most important one came January 6 when the staff met with the Technolog Board to discuss what to do about the shortage of student workers. Together they decided to pay regular staff members for the first time in the history of the magazine. This seemed to be all that was needed, as the Technolog came out regularly for the rest of the year. The shortage of staff situation came about mainly because many Technologgers left school to go into the armed forces or essential indus- try. Business Manager Tarleton, Ann Bennett, and Flora Palmstein took war jobs, while Harry Lowen- stein, managing editor during fall quarter, and Ed Gelfand went into the Navy. Handling the business end of the greater Tech- nolog were Karl Doeringsfeld, circulation mana- ger, and Bob Stenger, advertising manager. They saw to it that smashing ads and good publicity ap- peared in the Daily before monthly sales began. The striking cover design used on each cover this year was a product of the genius of Glenn Hanson, former editor of the Ski-U-Mah. Glenn won first prize in the original Technolog cover de- sign contest.

Staff members and friends of staff members filled the headquarters, which was already overcrowded because of a large stack of Varga drawings.

Jimmy Ginsberg, staff photographer for the Log, was kept busy at all times since he also took pictures for the Daily and Gopher. Another staff member was Roger Frigstad, who had the time of his life as official joke editor. The office was equipped well in order that eager staff members could better enjoy their work. Outstanding was their radio, reported to be the only one permanently located in Murphy HHall. Editor Brenner and Bob Fulton represented the magazine at the annual Engineering College Mag- azines ' Associated Convention at Northwestern University in October. They exchanged ideas with other engineering magazine editors, many of whom turned out to be girls. Both had a " bang-up time, " and reported that life in Chicago was most enlightening. They also enjoyed the association with other engineering magazine staffs.

We were dubious about this year ' s Gophers, but Dr. Hauser allayed our fears with a good team. We sat in the stands, munched our hotdogs, purchased at great risk to personal safety, and roared. Basketball games found us confused, as Coach Nordly never quite knew from one game to the next whom his players would be. Cagers breaking for the basket found draft officials waiting with papers. We laughed last fall at the antics of the rooter king and his weir d associates. As we wandered from one athletic event to the next, with cokes and candy making us restless, we sang the Rouser and tore up last quarter ' s fee statements with gusto! Page 276 Administration More and more difficulties beset the athletic administration as Cooke Hall went into its third year of wartime activities with shortages of mate- rial, manpower, and experienced athletes all prov- ing headaches. Part of the burden carried during the previous year was dropped as the bulk of the army and navy trainees stationed here left when their programs ended last spring. The discontinu- ance of their intensive physical program lifted some of the load from the shoulders of Athletic Director Lou Keller, who did an irreproachable job of co-ordinating the various activities falling un- der the classification of athletics. Undoubtedly the biggest event last fall in the minds of many Gopher fans was the return of Ber- nie Bierman, the Silver Fox of football. When he came back, most people felt easier about Minne- sota ' s chances in the remaining games. But such an attitude detracted from the credit due Dr. George hiauser, who carried on during Bierman ' s two years of absence in a manner worthy of high- est praise. Minnesota produced no national cham- pionship elevens during the last three years through no fault of Dr. hiauser, but because of the trouble most schools had — no experienced grid- ders. Dr. hiauser completed the season this fall as head coach. ENSIGN FRANK PATRICK, Navy athletic director. TO LOU KELLER, athletic director, fell the task of coordinating all the functions of athletic events — financial and administrative, as well as all the other little tasks that come up. But Dr. hHauser was not alone in receiving praise from the fans, for he was assisted by a loyal and hardworking coaching staff, led by Red Dawson. Other members of the 1944 gridiron staff were Jim Kelly, Ensign Frank Patrick, and CPO John Scafide. W. R. Smith worked steadily for long days all year managing intramural sports. He also handled the Gopher golf squad. Marshall Ryman, successor to Les Schroeder, served tirelessly in his capacity as ticket sales manager for athletic events. Carl Nordly started out what looked like a fairly good year with his Gopher basketballers last fall, but was unable to be in on the finish. Leaving Minnesota suddenly in January, Dr. Nordly was re- placed by Weston V. Mitchell, former basketball coach at Minneapolis Central High School. " Mitch " carried the team on, picking up the job when Dr. Nordly was forced to drop it, and com- pleted the year with an admirable record. In addition to working as Dr. Hauser ' s assistant last fall, Jim Kelly had his own track squad to worry about this year. Stripped of nearly all his veterans, Mr. Kelly nevertheless looked forward to Page 277 MARSHALL RYMAN, athletic ticket director, talks over sales matters with Joseph N.

Larry Armstrong finished the hockey season thoroughly satisfied with the team ' s record. Build- ing around a nucleus of a few veterans, his power- ful squad rammed their way to the top of the heap. C. R. Osell, wrestling coach, and Phil Brain, ten- nis mentor, faced a tough year, but both coaches brought their squads through better than the pre- season dopesters had supposed.

Dr. George hiauser and his staff felt that their squad would remain fairly con- stant throughout the season. Of the 68 men that showed up for the opening practice sessions, only 14 were gridiron veterans, but there was an influx of line weight and power that looked good to the Gopher coach. Sounding the Seahawks The first clash of the season was September 23 when the doughty Iowa Seahawks came North to test Minnesota ' s strength. Although no t the steamroller it was in previous years, the pre-flight school was still a tough opponent to be reckoned with. Gopher fans were not too optimistic about this opener, but they looked forward to a battle and got just that. The Navy men managed to draw first blood to- ward the end of the period, but the scrappy Page 279 managed to plough off a 15-yard gain on this one.

Cornhusker Clash Second opponent on the Gopher roster was Nebraska. Lacking the support of Navy players and forced to depend entirely on civilian gridders since the start of the war, the Cornhusker school was no match for the Minnesotans and dropped to the tune of 30-0 score. This was Dr. Mauser ' s first chance to see just what his reserves could do, and he was pretty pleased with the results. RECEIVING the coveted torch at the annual recognition dinner is Bill Aldworth, while Vic Kulbitski, former Gopher star who returned from the Marines this year, looks on.

Finding a weak spot in the left side of the Minnesota line early in the second quarter, they slammed at it again and again to pile up four touchdowns. But the Gophers were far from powerless against that onslaught. Four times they drove to within the Wolverine ten-yard stripe, and twice they pushed across into the promised land. One tally followed a Nolan punt that put the Gophers only 36 yards from the double stripe. It took just five plays to cover the remaining distance. The other came on a Williams-Lundquist reverse after re- ceiving a punt. Taking the leather from his pal, Red galloped 66 yards to touchdown territory for the final Gopher score of the day. The gun sounded as the tally still came to 28-1 3, Michigan.

Finally returning to his beloved Min- nesota from the Marine Corps, the great Silver Fox of football declined to accept any position but an advisory one for the remainder of the sea- son. FHowever, it made a difference in Minnesota morale just to have him back. Tiger Tales The Gophers looked forward to the Missouri tilt as a breather after Michigan, and at the end of the first half it looked as though that was just what it would be. Dr. Mauser ' s men had rolled up four tallies at the end of that session, and left the field confident that they had the game sewed up. But they hadn ' t convinced the scarred and scrappy Tigers that this was the case. Led by their wing-footed back.

Minnesota did not leave without some Buckeye blood spilled, however, for the Gophers racked up two scores themselves, and clicked for the extra points. When the game ended the score stood 34-14, in favor of the Big Ten champs. Wildcat Woes Figured to bow to the Gophers by at least two touchdowns, Pappy Waldorf ' s Wildcats proved to be no pushover. Twice they dragged them- selves from where a fast-moving Gopher attack had hammered them into the turf, and managed to come from behind to gain a 14-14 tie with the gold-jerseyed Minnesotans. A Homecoming crowd of nearly 50,000 got the surprise of their lives when they saw the fighting Wildcats roll over no ess than four touchdowns, two of which were called back by the referee.

Scrappy half- back Red Williams, playing the whole game in a special harness because of his injured back, ran wild during the first part of the third quarter, but had to pull out before the gun sounded.

Most of the Indiana attack rested on the shoulders (and in the arm) of that fabulous pitcher, but Bo McMillan had mapped out a tricky Page 284 ground offensive that left the Gophers gasping. At the end of the first half, Minnesota trailed on the sad end of a 14-13 score. The next period and most of the fourth passed without any tallies, but in the last minutes of the game Red Williams un- corked a long toss into the arms of reserve end Dick Schmitz, who danced past a horde of Hoosier tacklers right down next to the promised land. Hockey Mealey smashed center to sew it up. The Gophers could not rack up that extra point, but still stood five points to the good.

Then buttery-fingers spilled the leather again, and Bob Jensen started a Gopher drive that ended up in you-know-where.

Tommy Gates drove from the ten for the sixth tally, and Bud Gullickson twisted and squirmed 19 yards to chalk up the last one of the day. Madigan, it was ru- mored, was not happy.

The Gophers got right off to a flying start at the be- ginning of the first quarter, with Red Williams traveling 48 yards right off the bat. A fumble ended that streak, but tackle Bill Aldworth cap- tured the leather on the Iowa five and Kulbitski cracked the tall corn for first blood.

In fact, it was a knock-down drag-out battle. Both teams were absolutely determined to close their season with a win. The Gophers drew first blood, racking up seven points in the first quarter. The Badgers came right back with a tally to make it 7-6. Then Min- nesota struck again, shoving their score to 14, then again to move it to 2 I . The Badgers came back, and it moved up to 21-12. Then it really started. In the first part of the third period Wisconsin pushed another tally across to- move the score to 21-19. Minnesota was getting very anxious, and, sure enough, the Badgers rammed home another score to move it up to 26-2 I . Then, just like in the movies, two reserve backs wrote a thrilling finish to the game. Bob Kasper let fly with a 37-yard Page 288 pass to Bill Marcotte in the last half of the fourth quarter that sewed up the ball game, and Minne- sota went home on top of the heap, thanks to the two freshmen. Finish of Fourth War Year That ended Minnesota ' s fourth year of wartime football, with the scores standing at five wins, three losses, and one tie. Three of the victories were conference games, as was the tie. Only two of the losses were to Big Ten opponents.

Purdue Blood Minnesota had its first victory over Purdue in three years on January 8. Credit for the 49-44 vic- tory went mainly to newcomer Walt Rucke, who slipped in seven field goals. Next came the North- western contest, and the Gophers dropped back into the secondary with a 52-33 loss. Wisconsin followed up the next night, to take the men from Minnesota again, 46-37. Then Indiana and Purdue slapped two more on the defeat side, 48-46 and 54-45, respectively. Next Illinois rapped the Go- phers to the tune of 57-35. Northwestern fell before the Minnesotans on February 17, 43-37, as the Gophers went into the last rounds of the seasons. Then Illinois chalked up her second win, edging out Minnesota 49-48. Iowa tripped the Gophers for her second win of the series, 55-48. The regular season closed on a good note, however, as the Gophers romped to a 54-50 win over Wisconsin. Then the playing sea- son closed, and Minnesota felt one last bitter taste from another Seahawk win, 49-30. Page 293 X J I) fi Coach Larry Armstrong optimistically pre- dicted a good season for his Minnesota puck squad during the first team practices, and his heavily-laden one month schedule proved him right. Out of seven games played, the pucksters won six and tied one. Much of the power of the team rested in veterans Bob Carley, Al Opsahl, Bob Graiziger, and Jim Wild. Fast Beginning The season opened January 5 in a two-game se- ries with the St. James ' quintet. Rivals of the Go- phers for years, the Winnipeg men promised to be tough opponents. When the Gopher squad chalked up a 9-3 victory in the first game of the series, dopesters revised their opinions of the Minnesota men. The second game of the series netted Armstrong ' s men another scalp to the tune of a 3-0 score and the season was off to a flying start. Next on the schedule was a clash with the Michigan Wolverines, who came to Minneapolis all set to dump the Gopher applecart. Something must have gone wrong with their calculations, for the score ended with a 10-0 victory for the Go- phers. i1 y Proceeding with their packed schedule, the Go- phers met the semi-professional Bermans on Janu- ary 19. Armstrong ' s men had born down in a week of practice and it paid off for a 3-1 win. Led by hard-hitting Bob Graiziger, who scored both in the first and last periods, the Gophers swept the Bermans onto the defensive in the first few moments of the game and held them there LEFT HOLDING the bag is the Michigander behind the Gopher nets as Bill Klatt sweeps the pucic out of dangerous territory.

Canadian Competition Larry Armstrong was a little worried about his squads chances the following week, for again they were bucking some tough Canadian competition, this time from Fort William, Ontario. Opening practice on Monday after the Berman game, Armstrong put his pucksters through the most strenuous week of drill they had yet experienced, slacking off a little toward the last to ward off possible practice injuries.

Up until that time, the only penalty of the evening had been against Minnesota, but then both teams pulled out the stops. First Graiziger was lost with a cut eye, then Fort William ' s Walt Fedoric knocked himself out on the sideboards. Then Al Opsahl nicked his eye. But despite the ferocity of the last two periods, neither squad proved its superiority that night, and the question was left open until the playing of the second game the next night.

Anxious to make up for their whipping in their first appearance at Minne- sota, the Wolverines came to Minneapolis primed to take Coach Armstrong ' s men. But again they were sadly mistaken, and the Gophers romped gleefully through Michigan defenses time and again to roll up a 15-2 rout. Along with that win came the mythical " Big Ten Championship. " Their regular season over, Armstrong and his men played one more city game, with an All-Star squad made up of the cream of the Honeywell and Berman pucksters. Showing some brilliant de- fense play and led by defenseman Bob Graiziger, the Gophers romped to a 6-3 victory over the semi-professional outfit.

Iowa State Slaughter The first three contests, Augsburg, and two with Iowa, were rained out, and just when the Go- phers were expecting to sprout web feet, they got in their first tangle of the year — an 11-2 slaugh- ter of Iowa State.

Minnesota was behind, 3-1, for nnost of the game until Kelly, hitting for right fielder Ed Schaller, singled in Nolan and third baseman hlowie Peterson to knot the score. The Gophers also took the second game of the series the next day, 10-2. It was in this game that right hander Kelly was lost for the rest of the sea- son with a sore right arm. Ralph Holmberg, how- ever, filled in admirably. Minnesota out-hit the Badgers, 13-7, and Tom Wainwright, first base- man, touched the Wisconsin hurler for three for four. Tuesday, May 9, Camp McCoy brought in a soldier team that took the Gophers, 5-4, in a see- saw battle. The lead changed hands no less than five times. Although the MacMilian men out-hit the soldiers, 7-6, a bad fourth frame made the dif- ference. Edging Past Illinois Southpaw Mutzy Nolan won his second straight game the following week-end when Minnesota eked out a 6-5 win over Illinois to keep a perfect Big Ten record clear before dropping an 8-4 deci- sion the next day. In the first game, all five of the lllini runs were unearned. It was one of the best contests of the year from a spectator ' s standpoint because both teams came very near to locking horns on several occasions. Several Minnesota hurlers were unable to find the plate the following day, and Illinois put a nick in the Gophers ' title hopes. No less than 12 men were left stranded on the paths by Illinois, bring- ing the total to 38 in four games. A big improve- ment was noted in the play of footballer Wayne " Red " Williams, however, who clouted out six for ten in the two contests. Hits, Runs, and Butterfingcrs May 16 found Minnesota flattening a weak Gustavus Adolphus crew, 16-6, and every man on the Gopher roster who could lift a bat got a hit. The Gusties booted almost as many grounders as they picked up, being charged with 10 errors hHowie Peterson, hot-corner attendant for the Minnesotans, banged out five for six.

Diaz, flashy Gopher first saclcer, Jim Demos picks the ball out of the air. Demos made it this time, but during the course of the season plenty of sluggers went down on the first count because of Diaz. He nailed plenty of those line drives com- ing his way before they ever got out of the infield, and proved an all- round topflight first baseman. Curvester Nolan won his third ganne of the sea- son against Chicago, May 19, 14-2, and then hit a honne run in the second game Saturday to polish off the Chicagoans, 5-4. An important Illinois double-header with Michigan was rained out, leaving the Wolverines still in the Conference lead. At this point in the season, shortstop Lehrman was pacing the hitters with .400 followed by No- lan with .359. In a return game at Gustavus, the Gophers and Nolan clipped the Gusties, 9-1. More arguments were in order and the two teams held the errors down to a total of nine. Ft. Snelling furnished the next opposition May 24, and Ralph Holmberg scattered six hits to show the Gophers the way to a 5-2 win. An Act of God Iowa State was scheduled to play two return tilts on Northrop field. May 26 and 27, but flood conditions around Ames caused all Navy passes to be cancelled. After this, the Gophers had a chance to tie for the Big Ten title. The Gophers had a 5-1 record while Michigan was purring along at 6-0. If the Maize and Gold had been courteous enough to drop one of their two remaining tilts, Minnesota, winning both ends of a double-header from Northwestern, would make an extra series necessary to determine the top team. Page 299 Unfortunately, Michigan wasn ' t considerate and Northwestern proved to be too much for the Gophers in the two games played June 3. The Wildcats took the first contest, 3-1, and then moved over the prostrate Minnesotans to cop the second, 6-3. The twin dumpings dropped the Go- phers to fourth place as the season closed.

The minor sports ended their seasons with wide- ly differing records. The track team had three wins and seven losses. The swimmers chalked up a three-win, two-loss season. The wrestling season ended with three wins, two ties, and one loss. The tennis team got only one victory out of their eight-match schedule, and the golfers lost only one of their five matches. racd What started out to be a gloomy season for the Minnesota track team wound up being far more of a success than Coach Jim Kelly had antic- ipated, for the Gophers finished with three vic- tories in the Big Ten Conference against five de- feats. With Bruce James, veteran quarter-miler, the only letterman back on the squad, Coach Kelly be- gan the indoor track season by bowing to North- western, 55l 2-47 ' 2. Chicago was the next squad on the indoor calendar, and the Gophers com- pletely overwhelmed the Maroon, 47 ' 2-l6. DOWN THE CINDERS come the hurdlers, heading toward the tape at the end of the 100-yard stretch. Gopher hurdler Bill Inglis is right in the middle of it all. HARRY JOHNSON, far left, really pours on the coal as he spurts for the tape. It looks like Harry will have to settle for a second on this one, though. GETTING AWAV to a fast start at the beginning of the century dash is Mark Brownstein. The cindermen went through ' three meets in the outdoor season which followed, winning only one, that against Iowa, 30-19, and losing two, 62-30 to the Iowa Seahawks, and 53%-45 ' 4 to Northwest- ern before they got the much-needed help of dashman Mark Brownstein. hHe ran second only to Page 300 Buddy Young of Illinois in the 100-yard sprint in the Central Intercollegiates.

The Gophers lost to Wisconsin in the next meet. Bau- mann showed that he had the stuff which was go- ing to make him the top high jumper in the Big Ten before the season was over, hie cleared six feet, two inches to take the event easily. Mean- while, Brownstein was holding up his end of the TRACK COACH Jim Kelly worried and worried, but in the end his squad did better than he had hoped.

Reinforcements During this mid-season time, several other tracksters, previously unheralded, began to come to the fore. Marsh Potter received a medical dis- charge from the Coast Guard and joined the squad to augment the services of Brownstein in the dashes. hHis stamina in the distance sprints, especially the 220-yard dash, added several ex- tra points to Minnesota ' s total for the year. Two More Additions As the basketball season drew to a close, a couple of cagers, Gordie Emerson and Bill Inglis, joined the cinder team. Inglis was the squad ' s only hurdler for a while, and Emerson ran Baumann a close second for high jump honors. Page 301 The weight divisions remained a problem all season, as only two men were entered in the shot put and discus. Icelandic Haraldur Magnusson and Gil Gaarder had to hold up this department throughout the year. Edison High School in Min- neapolis furnished Kelly with the team ' s best broad jumper, Harry Johnsen, while Bob Turnacliff came in second in that division. The Gophers lost the next meet with Wisconsin, 5l ' 2-45 ' 4, but this match served to introduce two new hurdlers — - Harry Dam and Bob Cran- ston. Cranston went on to win his letter, and Dam became a jack-of-all-trades, running in most of the distance events as well as hurdling. The team closed out the season with three de- feats, two of them to the strongest track teams in the Conference — Michigan and Purdue.

SuUmmc Swimming five meets in a competitive schedule of only a month this year, the Gopher mermen under Coach Niels Thorpe managed to take three of the matches, dropping two to teams rated the strongest in the Big Ten. When Thorpe opened his practice season in December one star veteran, diver Vern Routsalainen, returned to his team. By the middle of January, however, the swimming Page 302 mentor managed to locate and whip into compet- itive shape an above average group of swimmers. First meet of the season came January 27, when the Gopher tankers met Iowa State. Anxious to see how his untried newcomers would act in col- lege competition, Thorpe gloomily predicted an Iowa victory. During the first part of the meet, his ROUTSALAINEN AGAIN, as he planes down toward the water In the Iowa State meet.

Toward the end of the meet Routsalainen and his diving partner, Wayne Perrault, copped first and second place in their competition. Johnny Hollingshead and Bob Gorgan also took first and second in the breast stroke division to ease the Gophers into last-minute victory.

But the Go- some LAST-MINUTE DOPE goes to swimmers Ojampa, Jones, and Hollingshead as Gopher Coach Niels Thorpe hands out a few final tips to his men just before the start of a meet.

It was a game try by the Gopher tankers, but there was too much experience on the scales against them in this one. phers plunged into a week of intensive and strenu- ous pre-nneet practice, determined to stop the high-powered Northwesterners. It was a game try, but the Minnesota freshmen and few veterans were snowed under by Wildcat talent, and found themselves looking up from the bottom end of a 46-38 score at the end of the meet. Paced by fast-moving Art Koblish, veteran Wildcat tanker, the Northwestern squad moved in to cop the victory that all the dopesters had predicted for them. Of the few bright lights on the Minnesota horizon that day, the outstanding one was Routsalainen, who came through with his diving first place as regularly as clockwork, on that day and in every meet all season. Michigan Might It looked as though even darker things were in store for the Gopher tankers the following week, for their opponent was the mighty Michigan, acknowledged top team of the Big Ten. Knowing that the Michiganders had whipped the Wildcats 54-29, did not make Gopher backers any happier in the frenzied week of practice before the meet came off. True to reputation, the Wolverine swimmers chalked the second defeat on the Gophers sea- sonal record on February 10, outswimming the Minnesota men to score a 50-34 win. Again it was a victory of experience over new talent, and Thorpe ' s men resolved to break their slump the next week when they met Iowa — and kept their resolution. Holding the Hawkeyes In this Iowa meet the Gophers climbed back on the winning bandwagon, trouncing the hiawkeyes 46-38 in a somewhat precarious meet. Although the Minnesotans held a fairly substantial lead all the way through the competition, Iowa managed to be a constant threat, never quite getting ahead, but always trailing closely until the end of the final event. In some ways, it was the most in- teresting meet of the season. The last meet of the season was the triangular one with Lawrence College and Wisconsin. The Appleton school, which was fairly loaded with swimmers in 1944, pulled down only a third in this SWIMMERS Grey, Besel, Thoreson, Rotering and Lager sit one out on the sidelines at a meet while they rest between their events and watch the divers doing their sting in the tank. meet, while Wisconsin trailed with a second.

Al- though the supply of middleweight grap piers was plentiful throughout the season, Osell expected to have trouble in settling his men in the heavyweight class, too.

On January I 3, the Gophers were barely beaten by Indiana, 15-13, after scrapping it out in every event. It took one fall, but that was enough. Next week came a tussle with the doughty Iowa preflighters, who were tough, but not the steam- roller squad they had been before. Battling it out all the way, the Gophers held the preflighters to a tie score of 14-14. In this meet. Lister continued his unbroken record of victories.

The Irish golfers were later rated among the top stick-wielders of collegiate competition. SLUGGING TRIO of Gopher golf — Jerry Milner, Louis Lick, and Vic Rotering — headed for the University course on one of the few prac- tice sessions that they were able to have outside. These three were key men in the four Gopher victories during their five-match schedule last spring. Lick later went on to sew up the National Collegiate cham- pionship for himself during the summer. This year Coach Smith looked forward to a fair season, but knew he would have to depend large- ly on new men from high school competition. Louis Lick, national champion after last summer ' s victory, will be the central threat around which the Gopher squad will be built, but the rest of the team is as yet fairly liquid, according to Coach Smith. CHHC Coach Phil Brain and his tennis squad suffered blow upon blow even before the season opened, losing veteran players one after another until the team was stripped to practically no experienced men at the start of the season. To make matters even worse, the schedule the team had drawn was a tough one, with six matches on the calendar. Brain expected a very dark and dreary year. Tipping Chicago First meet of the season was with Chicago. Worried to the point of distraction, Brain gloom- ily forecast a beating at the hands of the Illinois men. Minnesota was green and lacked polish, while the Chicago boys, although not the top Big Ten outfit, were way ahead of Minnesota. But the Page 309 Gopher racqueteers had their own ideas about this meet, and, determined to get their season off to a good start, edged out the Chicagoans, 5-4. Michigan Too Much Brain was pleased at the opening, but he real- ized that the next opponent, Michigan, would be quite a change from Chicago. It turned out that the Gophers took their worst drubbing of the sea- son at the hands of the Michiganders, losing 8-1. Next came the second half of the Chicago se- ries, and this time the Chicago team was out for TOP — Ted Herman and John Adams pair off for a hot session of doubles with two other Gopher racqueteers.

Football A shortage of referees and competing teams kept IM touchball from opening until October 12, with the teams divided into two leagues — aca- demic and professional fraternities. Phi Rho Sigma sounded the opening gun of the year in the professional league, tripping Phi Chi, 13-0, on the first night of the season. Nu Sigma Nu B team was stopped by Psi Omega, 6-0, and Alpha Kappa Kappa went down before the Nu Sig A team attack, 6-0.

Page 311 Academic fraternities opened competition a week later with SAE tramping over Acacia, 25-0, and Phi Beta Pi stopped Phi Delta Epsilon, 23-0. From there on in, the lid was off, with four and five games being played every night, keeping all of the University touchball fields occupied. From time to time one team or another moved to the fore and dropped back again, but several squads stayed consistently in the limelight all the way through the season. Chief among these were Nu Sigma Nu A team and Phi Rho Sigma in the professional league, while Alpha Delta Phi and SAE kept close to the top in the academic league. During the second month of the season, only five teams were in the unbeaten class: Phi Ep, SAE, Phi Rho, Nu Sig A, and Psi Omega. In the professional league. Phi Rho kept moving up to the top. At this time, several new teams joined IT ' S A LONG PASS — too long, in fact. If you look closely you ' ll see the receiver is out of bounds.

A week later Phi Rho followed through to smash the way to a 20-0 victory over Psi O to cinch the pro- fessional IM crown. Alpha Delt lost to Phi Ep in the academic league and thus gave them the aca- demic IM title. The all-IM championship game between the two league winners on December 6 favored the Phi Rhos because of their unscored-upon record.

Three plays Kelly cracked through the defense to nail Gene Saxon behind the line and the game ended, 9-7, with Phi Rho Sigma, professional medical fraternity, carrying off the all-IM touchball championship. Basketball W. R. Smith and his staff went right into prep- arations for the opening of the basketball season at the beginning of winter quarter. Navy teams opened competition even before the end of the fall session, and by the beginning of January there were two divisions organized in the V-12 league and an NROTC league. The fraternities, late in registering for competition, were slower to get un- derway. During the first ten days of January, two title contenders loomed in the Navy loops. In the NROTC league, Squad 2 tripped Squad 6, 29-27, to inch toward the crown of the league, while V-12 Squad 5 stripped three successive teams to lead Division I. Squad 10, title holders last year, also got off to a roaring start by downing Squad 14. Interfraternity games started just two days later, as Phi Beta Pi downed Theta Tau, 25-24, in the professional league opener. On the same night Phi Chi stopped Psi Omega, 57-27, and Gamma Beta Gamma rolled over Phi Delta Chi, 18-15. Navy competition went on with Squad 5 still holding the lead when it whipped Squad 8 for its fourth consecutive win. V-12 Squad 16 moved on to pound Squad 13, 43-21, and Squad 8 stopped Squad 5, 29-27. In the academic fraternity leagu-e, Phi Ep just edged by Theta Chi, 24-23, in one of the hottest games of the year, with Phi Ep Mel Fishman chalk- ing up 14 points for the winners unassisted. An independent league also opened up January 16, with an Army PMG squad nudging the Bears, 20-19, the AST five clipping the Wesley Founda- tion crew, 21-14, and Slipstickers, an engineering team, downing Alpha Phi Omega, 28-19. Second round of l-M competition got under way January 17, and within two days all leagues were hot at it. Phi Chi stopped Theta Tau, 25-24, then went on to take Delta Sigma Delta, 17-14, while Nu Sigma Nu, rated a strong contender, went down before a rugged Phi Rho Sigma B squad, 53-12. Psi Omega then tripped the doughty Delta Sigs, 24-19, to move toward the top of the heap. Page 313 JUST A BUNCH OF ALLEY CATS. Competition ran hot and heavy in the Union bowling alleys all winter, as four leagues vied for the l-M bowling crown. Slipstickers headed for the top of the independ- ent league by skidding past the fast and tricky Wesley Foundation five, 16-12, on January 30, while Beta Theta Pi, SAE, Delta Kappa Phi and Sigma Chi all scored wins the same night. Psi Omega added another scalp to its belt February I, when it trounced Alpha Kappa Kappa, 22-16. The Fifth Monarchy five, an independent team, suddenly leaped into view as a crown contender when it stopped the Blueprint team, 52-18, add- ing one more win to an undefeated record. With the final playoffs only a week away, Theta Tau upset the applecart again by tripping a lead- ing Phi Rho A quintet, 37-35, with Phi Chi, Psi O A and Phi Psi all tallying the same night. Two days later Fifth Monarchy did it again, rollicking to a 44-24 win over Army PMG, and looming large in the independent title field. Final standings at the beginning of the All-I-M title race found Phi Ep leading Division I of the academic fraternities; Alpha Delt headed Division 2, Phi Chi A led the first division of the profes- sional fraternity league; and Psi Omega, led Di- vision 2. Army AST headed the independent Di- vision I, and Fifth Monarchy was at the top of Division 2. In the playoffs, Alpha Delt clipped Phi Ep and Psi Omega to take the all-fraternity champion- ship. Fifth Monarchy took first place in the inde- pendent group, topping an Ag campus Farm House, 48-12. A week later, the Fifth Monarchy ran away with the civilian title, knocking off Al- pha Delt, 33-15. Next came the All-I-M crown clash, with the Monarchy five meeting powerful NROTC Squad 5. The Navy took the count in this one, 28-19, and Monarchy reigned supreme. Bowling Slow to get underway this year, intramural bowl- ing was divided into four leagues before long, as more and more teams enrolled. Even a faculty keglers ' group joined the competition before the season ended. The teams met nearly every night in the Union alleys for their matches.

Ac- cording to Darwin ' s theory, this was where the future of the race hung out. hlundreds of girls went all out to make the Women ' s Athletic Association more active than ever before this year. They were most successful, because girls suddenly became aware of health during the strain of the war. By the end of the year, 500 girls were listed as members in the files of WAA, and most of them were actively participating in one or more of the variety of sports offered on the weekly program. During fall quarter alone, the organization interested eight per cent of the University feminine population in women ' s athletics, and proved to them that this was the answer to their extra-curricular problems. Mjoset Leads Association This year the Women ' s Athletic Association operated under the guidance of President Elaine Mjoset, with various officers and committee chairmen who aided in the planning of programs, special events, and drives throughout the year un- der her. Other officers were: Evelyn Storberg Bue- tow, vice president; Mary Jane Johnson, secre- tary; and Joanne Tumquist, treasurer. A special committee headed by Juanita Schu- macher presented the WAA Board with a brand new constitution this year which started the ac- tivity ball rolling. Prizes for Winning Teams Competition between the various leagues par- ticipating in WAA tournaments always has been keen, and this year was no exception. The little stuffed animals offered by the WAA Board to the winning teams in each event have long been con- sidered a prize well worth winning. The basketball champs walked off with a stuffed chicken, while the winning swimming team received a miniature horse for its efforts. This year the Pi Phis won a panda for taking top honors in bowling, and Dum- bo, the elephant, passed from the Zeta Tau Alphas to the Alpha Phis for the volleyball cham- SERViNG IN A BADMINTON GAME involves hand-to-eye coordina- tion, intricate footwork, and long hours, as Pern Johnson and Dottie Sonnmer will undoubtedly agree.

Horace, the horse, went to the newly or- ganized independents. The WAA ' ers thennselves earned awards, too. Maroon and gold " M ' s " were given each quarter to mennbers most interested in athletic activities. The most cherished award came at the end of the year when a few of the outstanding " M " winners were presented with the seal of University of Min- nesota. Ag WAA Formed Mary Lou Walker led in the formation of an Ag Campus WAA, which was the first to be or- ganized in many years. An independent league, composed of girls from dormitories, cooperative houses, and rooming houses, was organized to correspond with the sorority league. Dorothy Sommer was elected president of the new league, while Barbara Schmidt took charge of the sorority league. The Women ' s Athletic Association went out- side the athletic department this year to sponsor one of the most successful war drives of the year. As a result of careful planning and enthusiasm, the WAA ' ers were able to exceed the quota of 8,000 warm garments, bedding, and shoes that was set up as the goal for the drive which was held during winter quarter. PERFECT CONFORMATION on the walk is executed by three mem- bers of Pegasus. They look even better on the bridle path on the rack, trot, and canter, but appearance also depends upon how much the horses have been ridden before the gals from Pegasus get to them! Despite all the other outside activities, WAA was able to carry on an effective program among its own members also. Every ninth hour was open for such activities as basketball practice, ' archery, and the newly organized fencing program. " Play Night " Proves Popular Mermaids had the Norris swimming pool at their disposal, and dancers were able to use any of the gyms for practice. Tuesday night was looked forward to as " Play Night " by loyal WAA ' ers. The gym was open to members who cared for practice in exhibition skills or participa- tion in a little friendly competition in any sport from volleyball to badminton. Still not satisfied with this well rounded sports program, WAA also offered free figure skating to members every Friday afternoon at the Arena. The only thing lacking was bowling, and the Union took care of that. This was a wonderful sport for reducing, the girls found out, for not only did they get plenty of exercise by bowling, but they were often forced to set their own pins. Orchesis Gives Spring Recital Sub-divisions in the WAA program were the various organizations for the more skilled mem- bers. Orchesis, the national modern dance soror- ity, gave members a chance to formulate their tal- ents along that line, with emphasis placed upon grace and poise. This year Orchesis was headed WAA BOARD: Standing: Virginia Arne, Barbara Schmidt, Jean Denn- ler, Beverly Backlund, Ruth Jones, Alice DeBower, Dorothy Sommer, Arline Danley, Delores O ' Keefe, Virginia Brooks.

Orchesis also spon- sored Junior Orchesis, an organization made up of aspiring hopefuls, practicing for future mem- bership in the senior organization. Aquatic Leaguers Work Hard Members of the Aquatic League met every Thursday night to practice swimming strokes and routines for their spring " Swimphony. " League President Ruth Jones agreed that the work was hard, but that the girls were loyal and proud to be Aquatic League members. Female cowboys and bridal-path riders found enjoyment and companionship by joining the campus riding club, Pegasus. The meaning of the name, " flying horse, " was taken literally by some of the girls, as well as the horses, for many of the members claimed that they " just couldn ' t stay on! " But most of the members managed quite well, according to Marjorie Thomas, president of the group. WAA Attempts to Interest All Students And that was the way it seemed to be with the entire Women ' s Athletic Association — it was bigger and better than ever before. Sponsored by Miss Alice De Bower of the Physical Education department, the WAA was way ahead of the other women ' s organizations on the campus.

" The Minneapolis Symphony played again in Northrop Auditorium under the wand of Mitropoulos. The University Band was most evident at athletic events throughout the year, while the University Symphony gave us a concert. A limited number of students took part in plays and sketches over WLB.

" Page 320 ui]jVKJ jrv inu jfi The music department broke into big time last year with as many prominent names under the words, " Sponsored by the music department, " as any other group of its kind in Minneapolis. Fred Waring ' s Bob Shaw started off the year with a Saturday night Convocation at which he directed 500 University and high school students in a program of the songs which he and the Col- legiate Chorale of New York had made famous. Both the students and the audience were enthusi- astic about the human dynamo in slacks and sang their best for him on the chorus of " The Battle hlymn of the Republic. " Nearly all of the music students had a chance to perform at least once, since there were weekly music hours and broadcasts over WLB, the senior f - » READY TO BEGIN one of his pre-convocation recitals is Arthur B.

Besides these, the combined music department-University Theatre production of " Babes In Toyland " and the annual Univer- sity Singers concert in February kept many stu- dents busy. Faculty members were very active this year, too. William Lindsay played piano concerts all over the state, and Paul M. Oberg, chairman of the department, got two conventions of very dif- ferent types to meet on the campus. One of them was for choirmasters and organists, while the other featured industrialists who wanted to know what music could do for their production lines. University Band One of the big events for the University Band this year was a genuine initiation of new members. Pledges went wild trying to find " good " cigar- ettes, after-dinner mints, and red, white, and blue gum drops for their dictatorial stooge masters. JUST TAKING A BREATHER between lessons is Donald N. Ferguson, professor of music and pianist par excellence. Lower left, Earle G. Killeen, another professor of music and director of the University Chorus, runs over some new music for the next Chorus rehearsal. Page 32! Said pledges came through with flying colors, though, and 58 of them were initiated with appro- priate ceremonies. Numerous performances took up a lot of the Band members ' time. The inevitable football games nearly every Saturday during fall quarter called for long sessions on the practice field each day. Three formal concerts at Northrop Memoria Auditorium, five Monday afternoon broadcasts over WLB, pep bands for the basketball games, and a ship launching at Camp Savage kept Direc- tor Daniel L. Martino on his toes all year. A recreational band was set up this year for students and faculty members. With a member- ship of over 50, the group played only for the love of playing and gave no concerts. Loyal Band members were rewarded for their hard work with a semi-formal dinner-dance at the Curtis hlotel February 3, complete with a grand march and everything. The list of patrons included Governor and Mrs. Edward J. Thye and President and Mrs. Walter C.

Beethoven ' s " Eighth Symphony " was presented as the major work on the program. The annual commencement recital in May fea- tured the cream of the music department talent playing show pieces for the general public. Registration zoomed in the practical music classes — lessons for those not in the department. The large number of students kept both instruc- tors and professors tearing out their hair in an attempt to get all their pupils in for lessons once a week. Audiences waiting for a first glimpse of the Minneapolis Symphony members of the 1944-45 season saw four women walk onto the stage when the orchestra assembled for the opening concert in October. A manpower shortage had hit the Symphony. With thirteen members of the orchestra in the armed forces and several resignations on the books, conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos selected as new members: violinist Jenny Cullen, cellist Hen- riette de Constant, flutist Julia Denecke, and harp- ist Stella Seidenberg. There were also a new con- certmaster, Louis Krasner, and a new assistant conductor, Yves Chardon.

Mr. Mitropoulos started out the season with a good solid program of Bach, Brahms, and Bee- thoven, and then branched off in later concerts to give the Twin Cities ' customers premieres of works by Aram Khatchatourian, Alban Berg, Darius Mil- haud, and Robert Casadesus. Pianists were in the majority on the list of guest artists appearing with the Symphony — Casade- sus, Serkin, Kapell, and Malcuzynski — to mention a few. And then there were concerts by violinists Fritz Kreisler, Jascha Heifetz, and two Metropoli- tan Opera stars, Dusolina Giannini and Ezio Pinza. At two of the programs, Mr. Mitropoulos turned guest artist and played the piano while directing the Symphony.

" However, when Sanford hiall opened again, most of them were able to find a place to unpack their luggage — at least for a quarter — and really enjoy the University ' s bona fide visiting per- sonalities. Their first chance came when a stunning Span- ish dancer in a gown of white lace, Teresita Osta, strolled onto the stage of Northrop Auditorium on Thursday, October 12, to open the year ' s regular Convocation series. Not many freshmen knew one of the guests who dropped in during fall quarter. Captain Ger- Page 325 aid R. Prescott, director of the University Band, took a swing back to the campus on his first leave since he went into the Army almost three years ago. He thought that the Band was coming along very well under the direction of Daniel L. Mar- tino, and told all his old friends and pupils about his work in musical therapy. Lieutenant Colonel Bernie Bierman of the Ma- rines returned to the campus to stay, but he said that until next year he would serve only in an ad- visory capacity to present coach George hiauser. Etta Moten, who was playing in a downtown engagement of " Porgy and Bess, " came out to the University for the Bond Rally. She sang some of her famous songs, sold some bonds, and bought one for herself. On her heels came Paul Robeson who spoke to some 350 students at a meeting of the intercui- tural commission of the Y. hie told them that he had come to speak because " the University had a tradition of liberalism, " and warned students that the disappearing stand of liberals today de- manded the unification of all working together against fascism. To pull in the dollars for the Ag Campus War Chest drive, Ricky Sorenson, the first Minnesotan to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, spent several hours out on Ag giving students a good sales talk so that they were able to push over the top on their goal. About I 100 potential foreign correspondents swarmed from one end of the campus to the other early in December in an attempt to learn how to make all of their high school papers and yearbooks award winners. They hung over the counter of the Daily office to watch the " World ' s Largest College Newspaper " get ready to go to press, and stared with popeyes at the big busi- ness going on in the Gopher office. And there were visiting personalities by the dozen booked by the University Artists Course.

Mr. Lombard called railroad ticket offices from Minneapolis to New York and finally managed to pick up a stray reservation, so Mr. hlorowitz played his concert here — and on the day it was scheduled, too! It was a sell-out house, with peo- ple even sitting on the stage. When hielen Jepson gave a concert with Mr. Kullman in November, the stage of Northrop sud- denly grew trees and flowers as a background for the operatic excerpts which the two artists sang. And when the American Ballad Singers made their Minneapolis debut they were accompanied by a spinet piano and sat around a big table to sing their program. In February, the Budapest string quartet came to Minneapolis for the Artists Course and put on a program of chamber music for the really elite music public.

SMEARING ON THE GREASE PAINT good and thick for their appearance in " Candida " are, from back to front, George Ebeling, Kenneth Little, and Dean Almquist. Students and faculty members had a hard time not being Theatre conscious this year because of the whooping campaign put on by publicity direc- tor, Minnie Brill. Not only did the regular run of plays bring out the " SRO " signs, but the chil- dren ' s shows, " Huckleberry Finn " and " Mary Pop- pins, " packed the young drama critics in at a rate of 580 a matinee. Drafted into doing most of the dirty work and in there plugging at every production were the Masquers, a group of students who had to put in 150 hours of work during the Theatre season be- fore they could even j oin. With Dick Spear as president, they turned in an ambitious record of activities — ushering at all the regular plays, sponsoring a matinee of " Candida, " and putting on Poldoni ' s comedy, " La Locandiara, " with much success. In March, they took time off from painting scenery and doing odd jobs for forth- Page 328 coming productions to hold a big party for them- selves and to initiate a few new members. Some of them practically hibernated down in the base- ment of the Music Building, with only an occa- sional sally out for " more hot coffee. " The full season of comedy promised by the Uni- versity Theatre for this year began with a gay per- formance of an old favorite, " She Stoops to Conquer, " by Oliver Goldsmith. While the play held true to the story, Frank M. Whiting, director of the production, streamlined the script by cut- ting out excess verbiage and rewriting lines. The plot of " She Stoops to Conquer " was based on Goldsmith ' s experiences while a student. IN THE PROCESS of being lured into the colossal spider web is Gene Podany, a butterfly fairy in " Babes in Toyland.

Page 329 He stopped at a village overnight and asked at the alehouse for the way to the best hotel. A lo- cal wit directed him to the house of the leading citizen, and naturally there were complications. Said complications kept the audiences roaring and the players on their toes. All was not gaiety and laughter backstage, though, as leading lady Marie Backlin McPherson fell over a railing just before opening night. She managed to pull herself together, however, and was shrewd enough to catch her Young Marlowe every performance. When two women have their hearts set on the same thing, there is bound to be war, and that ' s exactly what happened at the Dayton and Kauf- man play, " First Lady, " in November. Full house WASHINGTON INTRIGUE is at Its highest pitch as the two ambitious females use their wiles on the " Peace, Purity, and Patriotism " presi- dent and a green young senator. audiences watched two women plow into the politics and intrigue of Washington, upset a na- tional election, and still come out of it all un- scathed. Playing the parts of the two ambitious women with their eyes glued to the White hlouse were Joan Lundeen and Corrine hlolt. Their husbands had something to do with the play since they were the presidential candidates, but Ralph Mof- fatt and Arthur Peterson, Sr., wandered off and on the stage — mere pawns in the game of poli- tics being waged by their wives. Practically driving the audience to hysterics was the firmly corseted Mrs. Creevey, played by Ruth Peterson, who was president of the " Peace, Purity, and Patriotism League. " Figuring that even University students like plays with fairies, come-alive toys, and villains, the Theatre and the music department got together to present " Babes in Toyland " in December.

THE TWO JUNIOR MISSES themselves, Grace Emery and Mary Lou Leonard, discuss the gay problem of finding a man apiece for the New Year ' s night dance. It was a tough struggle, but they won! make the play more professional, an orchestra played from the pit and ballet dancers waltzed, across the stage at intervals. Although there were plenty of University stu- dents at the performances, the real fans were the hundreds of children who screamed or laughed as the scenes demanded from the beginning to the end of the show. One little patron nearly broke up the play when he screamed out, " hHey, don ' t drink that. It ' s poison! " to John Christiansen, the villain, as he was about to die the death of all villains — by drinking a glass of poison. Leaving the audiences howling in their seats, " Junior Miss, " by Choderov and Field, swept through University Theatre for four days in Janu- ary with each performance a mad success. It was every man for himself because each one of the characters chalked down at least a fraction of a stolen scene to his credit. Delwin Dusenbury was thoroughly convincing as long suffering Papa Graves, and his lovely wife, played by Joan Lun- JOAN LUNDEEN as Mrs. Graves (above left) presents her daughter, Grace Emery, with a doll the boss sent her for Christmas while Del Dusenbury, the father, looks on . . .

But what kept the show really humnning were the Junior Misses themselves, two teen-agers at that difficult stage, played by Grace Emery and Mary Lou Leonard. The problems they had in keeping Grace ' s home from collapsing and getting a man apiece for the New Year ' s night dance produced top-notch entertainment. AtcUct NORMA JEAN WANVIG and Helen Marie McPherson, from the cast of " Candida, " look at the script as they hear a few tips from Director Dusenbury. After obtaining a stained glass window, a morn- ing coat, and various antiques, the Theatre was in fine shape to present George Bernard Shaw ' s " Candida " in February, despite much difficulty in getting Victorian props together. The play concerned a young English minister whose beautiful wife, Candida, always seemed to be attracting other men, unintentionally, of course. hHer affair with an eighteen-year-old boy wouldn ' t usually bother a married man, but before the last curtain rang down, the young minister was wondering if his wife still loved him. However, she convinced him that she wouldn ' t desert him for a young boy, and all ended happily. In the University Theatre production, Candida was played by two actresses. Norma Jean Wan- vig and Helen Marie Backlin McPherson.

Kay Dale was a riot as the minister ' s secretary. Ken- neth Tuttle played the part of the capitalist father-in-law, and Dean Almquist was the min- ister ' s assistant in charge of making official calls. Carrying on the old tradition of one Shake- speare play a year, the Theatre presented a run of the " Taming of the Shrew " with Minnie Brill and Dick Fliehr playing the leading roles. It was a reunion for them, because until last year they had always played together in at least one show. Shortly after rehearsals went under way in Febru- ary, Minnie was black and blue from giving her all to playing the part of Kate. With a fine stage setting designed by " Doc " Frank Whiting, there were very few problems ex- cept for building a realistic horse for the famous riding scene. Dick Spear was convinced that if the Lunts could have a real horse on the stage on Broadway, the University Theatre could at least have a Shetland pony, but he lost out in the en- suing argument. The old problem of " What are we going to do for men? " came up as usual when casting for parts was going on, but there were enough to go around for the whole play, and the " Taming of the Shrew " went on as scheduled in April. DICK FLIEHR has a good hold on Minnie Brill while they rehearse steps for " Tanning of the Shrew.

Engineer Glen Sundberg waits his cue to cloud up and thunder. 70 " B The voice of Minnesota on the air, the school of experience, or the place where there was al- ways a laugh — that was WLB, the University Ra- dio Station. It was here aspiring students got ex- perience in every type of radio program from the news broadcast to the children ' s hour — as well as a bit of impromptu work because of last minute slip-ups. Only Radio Guild members could be on the air over WLB, but there were always plenty of hopefuls hanging around ready to help out and earn Radio Guild points. And it was worth the hard work, because the WLB ' ers had a great time. One night they had a party in Studio 3, and everything was arranged perfectly by the social chairman, Mary Lou Leon- ard. The only thing they hadn ' t counted on was the punch bowl, which collapsed after one glass had been filled. They still kid Mary Lou about how she was marooned on the other side of the punch bowl and practically had to swim back! Acting director of WLB, " Ez " Ziebarth, took care of the business end of the station. All prob- lems were taken to him, but one he hadn ' t counted on occurred when he was interviewing Mr. Nolte of the Extension Division. Mr. Ziebarth said, " We have just a few minutes left on the air. Is there anything you ' d like to add? " and Mr. Nolte replied, " Yes, in confusion I ' d like to say — Then there was Del Dusenbury, radio program director. When the Guild members temporarily took over his job for a few weeks, they found that holding try-outs, choosing a cast and sound effects, arranging rehearsals, and putting on the show was no easy matter. In fact, they were pretty confused, but claim that they were never as confused as Del was at the time he said, " Time " SLOW DOWN to a trot, " cau- tions Ruth Swanson, just in case Corinne Holt lets those hoof beats get out of hand.

Most of all, however, the credit for putting out the Gopher goes to the loyal staff members, who not only gave up their time to work for its completion and success, but also insisted upon having a good time while doing it!

Mass production copy writers included Libby Koop, who (under pressure) saw to it that all copy was written, and Louise Smith and Thanna Weid- lein, who stuck strictly to organizations ' write-ups — and also made their group picture appoint- ments on the side. Harry McCarthy wrote the sports section for Libby, while Kathryn Stickney struggled with same for fine arts. John hHerriford spent hours pouring over books on Minnesota his- tory as well as every copy of the Daily to find background material for writing the introduction. And Bob Rydholm always managed to be around when things became too tough for anyone else to bear — so he wrote the sub-division pages. Dot Thorp, super-efficient office manager, man- aged a large staff of willing workers, while Betty Johnson saw to it that the art work was produced. Those clever gopher sketches were done by Alice hHanson. The difficult task of keeping up-to-date on the Index was handled by hard-working Audrey Ol- son, who through the negligence of the editor, was forced to do almost half of her job without quite knowing what the score was. On the never-to-be-forgotten business staff was Ann Curran who kept track of the incoming and outgoing cash as it slithered around the huge figure of $16,000. Sherm Cole contacted every senior and forced them to be in the senior section, while Lois Fakler as Organizations manager talked the " inactive " fraternities into taking space in the book. In charge of selling the Gopher was Nancy Critchett. Leone King, the over-efficient business office manager, worked with Jean Rogers, Mary Jane Meisen, Shirley Daniels, and Ellen Engum in send- ing out bills. hHelping to make our initiation into the adver- tising field a success were Louise Miller, Donna Reasoner, Jane Perlich, and Mary McClanahan. The Board of Publications and Advisor Fred Kildow got us out of all sorts of jams, and kept us from getting into many more during the year. Engraving for the Gopher was done by Jahn Oilier Engraving Company, with special help from Gordon Brightman, E. W. Hill, and Bob Ihrig. Art Segal of the Bureau of Engraving helped in this line, too. Mr. W. O. Lund, Bill Lund, Jr.,.Nels Lundell, and Etta Miller of Lund Press kept us on our toes with the cry of " More copy. " The covers were made by Kingsport Press, with design suggestions from Harold Beckett. Group and senior pictures were done by New- burg Studios, while most of the fine large pictures were taken by Bruce Sifford. Athletic team pictures came through the courtesy of Photo-Lab; and football action shots were borrowed from the Minneapolis Times and the Minneapolis Star Journal Tribune. SJT pictures were taken by George Luxton, Wayne Bell, Russell Bull, and Ray Swan. Without the help of these people — and the Student Address Book — production of the 1945 Gopher would have been impossible. Our thanks to each and every one.

Foresight in the completion of a re- _ __ _ _ — habilitation program and the complete modernization of the Weber equipment line months before our country entered World War II, placed Weber in a posi- tion to supply modern, down-to-date, dental appliances to our government for urgent dental clinic use. Today, Weber manufactures one of the most complete lines of scientific equipment offered the dental profession . . . Motor Chairs, Foot-Pump Chairs, Shock-Proof X-Rays, Scientific Lights, Cuspidors, Units, i — — — — - — Engines and Stools ... all embodying the last word in electrical and mechanical ingenuity, appearance, and utility.

Maritime Conimission Photos of the great United States Merchant Marine are being trained in one of the nation ' s most unusual officer training programs. In every mighty convoy moving over the oceans of the world, engineer cadet-midshipmen of the U. S. Merchant Marine Cadet Corps are serving their six months of actual sea duty below deck in the powerful engine rooms of tankers, Liberty and Victory ships, and vessels of every type and description. This action-packed sea school training is only part of the two-year course leading to licenses as Third Assistant Engineers in the U. S. Merchant Marine and to commissions in the U. S. Maritime Service and in the U. S. Naval Reserve. These engineer cadet-midshipmen will find many jobs awaiting them ashore in the post-war period — jobs which require their specialized die- sel and steam engineering training. Thousands of future deck and engineer officers of the merchant marine are today earning their officers ' licenses and their war zone bars while serving in the U. S. Merchant Marine Cadet Corps. The program, both ashore and at sea, is operated by the Training Organization of the War Shipping Administration.
