With no traditions to fail hack on, We have been forced to make a large number ot important decisions that ordinarily do not fait upon the shoulders ot yearioooic staffs. But this same tack of tradition made it possiioie for us to eliminate any ideas, found in many yearhootcs, which only time would honor. As a result ot extensive study, the staff felt that many annuals left much to he desired. So We deter- mined that the first Crataegus, unhampered toy Hthat monster Cus- tom, Whom ati sense doth eatf, should he a yeartoooic which would give you real pleasure in reading, coupled with a pictoriai record ot the school year as you saw it. The enjoyment which you get from the possession oi this hook Witt he ample evidence ot the success ot our project. ' Page 4 CO Dedication . Board ot Trustees . The President-Elect .

This hook is the portaioie evidence of a strong educational institution that is the direct result of Mr. VoH4er,s never-ending activities to give to the people of Kansas City the fruits of a hountiful life. The people of Kansas City have many times expressed their gratitude for his helpfulness in increasing the cultural ioenefits of the community.

Jones, Executive Seeretary Counsel The President-Elect FTER three years of educational and spiritual growth, the Univerf sity of Kansas City feit qualified to enlist the services of a nationally known educator to guide its destinies. The University demanded leadership of a vigorous, progressive scholar, as Well as a practical educator. A strik- ing personality emhodying hoth of these essentials was asked to hecome the first president of the University of Kansas City. It was a great day in the history of this institution when Dr. J. Duncan Spaeth accepted this invitation. A' native of Philadelphia, Dr. Spaeth graduated from the University of Pennsylvania hefore taking graduate work at the University of Leipzig, in v By HORACE KIMBRELL Germany, where he received his Ph. D. degree. He continued his studies in France and Italy before returning to this country, Where he began a long and hrilliant educational career Which has carried him to positions in many of our country's outstanding schools, including Gustavus Adoiphus Col- lege, University of California, Univer- sity of Qregon, University of Southern California, Reed College, and Prince- ton University. He has received the honorary degree of Doctor of Literature from Muhlenberg and the University of Pittsburgh, and for many years has been an outstanding author and con- trihutor to periodicals. In the field of physical endeavors fcontinued on Page 50, A Woird from ur President-Elect HIS A annual, published by the first class to graduate from the Uni- versity of Kansas City, is an account of the life' and activities of the Uni- versity by the students themselves. They are the charter members of what will some day constitute a large and influ- ential body of loyal alumni of the College of Liberal Arts, the first unit of the University to be fully estab- lished. At the invitation of the editors, I am happy to contribute a few words by way of commending it to all who are interested in the University which, like Kansas City,s Orchestra, its Nelson Gallery of Art and its art schools, is of, for, and by Kansas City. 1. It is of Kansas City. Cities, like countries and like individuals, have their own character. Kansas City is not just another city. Its geographical position, its trade connections with east and west, and north and south, its history, its civic spirit, give it a peculiar and unique position among the cities ot the Union. The University of Kan- sas City is not to be just another uni- versity, but will foster, develop and express on the background of our com- mon national and cultural heritage what is best and most worthy in the spirit of the city and the region of which it is the commercial and in- tellectual center. 2. The University is for Kansas City, primarily and immediately for the young men and women of Kansas City and its contiguous region, to give to them the opportunities and train them in the responsibilities that a university education affords, without compelling them to seek these advantages at a dis- tance and weakening the ties that bind them to their community. Local and national universities both have their place in our educational life. Both are necessary to a healthy and normal de- velopment of all our faculties as a peo- ple and a nation. But educational standards and the ideals of scholar- ship, among students and teachers, can be and must be as high in a local as in a national university, if it is to be worthy of its name. The University is not only for the undergraduates, but for all the citizens who wish to avail themselves of its opportunities. We be- lieve in University Extension and Adult Education and shall, so far as our means and standards permit, offer opportunities for advancement to all who are willing to work and capable of profiting by the instruction offered. The University of Kansas City will be for Kansas City because as it continues it will in increasing numbers send into the professional and business circles of the community, citizens not only skilled in their vocations, but trained to recog- nize those deeper human values on which all enduring social and indi- vidual welfare depends. 3. The University is by Kansas City. It is voluntarily supported, de- pending on the tuition fees of its stu- dents, and the free gifts of its weli- wishers. As its service is directly local fContinued on Page 202 Page 11 A HILE the organization and cle- velopment of the University of Kansas City has loeen an important civic movement gaining momentum as the years have passed, the worli of one man has heen singularly outstanding in its growth. Ernest l-lenry Newcomh was among the first to sense the need and visualize the possibilities of a Uni- versity in this locality. Born in Virginia and educated in Missouri, he loegan an educational career at a very early age. At eighteen he hegan teaching in the rural schools of southern Missouri. Soon thereafter he hecame principal of the grade puh- lic schools of Neosho, Missouri, and later was graduated from Springfield State Teachers College and the Uni- versity of Missouri. At the age ol: twenty-four he was elected Superin- tendent of Schools of Newton County, Missouri. l'le was the organizer of the r The Executive Secretary K By HORACE KIMBRFLL lVlissouri Methodist Foundation, Co- lumloia, Missouri, and is a former president of Central College for Women. ln 1925 he is found in the midst of activities to estahlish a Uni- versity for Kansas City, and for three years thereafter served as Executive Secretary and outstanding leader ol The Lincoln and Lee movement. ln 1928 he was chosen Executive Secre- tary of the University of Kansas City movement in which capacity he served through its period of organization and continues to the present time. His capacity lor Worlc and construc- tive planning amazes all who lcnow him. A veritalole dynamo of human energy, his leadership permeates every phase of University activity. The Uni- versity of Kansas City exists today a splendid trihute to a man who has dedicated his life to a dream now heing fulfilled. Page 12 Dean anford By HORACE KIMBRELL N THE formation of the College of Liberal Arts in the University of Kansas City, no greater decision pre- sented itself to the Board of Trustees than the choice of a dean to huild and lead the college. A careful study was conducted to consider qualifications, experiences and personalities of many educators. Among these, the record of Grin Grover Sanford was outstanding, and he was asked to become the first dean of the University of Kansas City. Dean Sanford is a native of Missouri and a graduate of the Kirksvilie State Teachers College and the University of Missouri. After concluding further graduate study at the University of Colorado, he hegan a long and hrii- liant career as an educator which led him to the highest offices in the State Department of Education of Missouri., and to the place of Assistant State Superintendent of Public Schools of Missouri under the subsidy of the Gen- eral Education Board in New York City. From this work he was called in 1953 to his present position, where he took over his new duties hy help- ing in the selection of the first faculty. His career at the University of Kan- sas City has more than justified the faith and responsibility placed in him hy the Board of Trustees, for the steady growth of the University presented many problems which required vital decisions. His pedagogical soundness, his practical progressive nature, and his power of cooperation have helped to establish firmly a full four-year Col- lege of Liheral Arts. Page 13 cc By HARRY J. KAUFMANN, JR. HAT is the caption a headline writer lor a local newspaper gave the story of the dedication ol the Uni- versity of Kansas City nearly three years ago. It was a singularly appro- priate description ol the occasion. The University, as it toolc shape in the prophecies ol the speakers at the open- ing convocation, October 1, 1955, was indeed a newusun rising to help dis- perse the fog that had long enshrouded the city,s cultural life. There never had been a university in Kansas City in all its near-century of history. For higher learning native youth was forced to turn to out-ol-town institutions. Par- ticularly those unable to go outside the city suffered from the laclc of a university. Even though the University ol Kansas City was offering only the first two years ol college worli as it opened, a four-year college of liberal arts was only two years away, and further develop- ment ol schools which malqe up a true university was a del- inite goal. It was an event to be looked upon as the realiza- tion of the ,dreams of many civic-minded persons, the fruit ol many years, preparationg r but also as just the first step in a new and infinitely longer taslc. Kansas City again was on the pfoneer trail. That the university movement tooli hold in the city at the same time the other cultural ventures were suddenly materializing indicated Kansas City was awakening to a side of its life never before emphasized so strongly. An art gallery comparable to some ol the worlds greatest in size and endow- ment was the gilt of William Roclchill Nelson and others. It was dedicated only three months after the University ol Kansas City opened its doors. A philharmonic orchestra with a conduc- tor ol international status emerged simultaneously. ln the same year, Kan- sas City began to progress in art, in music, and in education, despite the fact that the nation was in the depths of the depression. Why the University of Kansas City should appear on the scene at this time is a story that spans many years ol struggle by men ol vision against discouraging obstacles. For a long time a university had been a euphemistic Hprojectn in Kan- sas City. Somehow it never came out of the realm of discussion until the post-war decade. ln 1922 a Chamber Page 14 of Commerce committee, headed by James E. Nugent, started some of the first tangiiole Work on the problem. A few yearsiater plans for 'Lincoln and Lee Universityf' an institution to be maintained by the Methodist Church, made definite progress. At approxi- mately the same time proponents of time proposal to have a non-political, non-sectarian university became active. E. H. Newcomb, who had been execu- tive secretary of the Lincoln and Lee movement and later of the original University of Kansas City, Missouri project, ioecame executive secretary for a united university plan, combining time efforts and assets of both groups. The first Board of Trustees of tile Uni- versity of Kansas City, headed by Ernest E. Howard as ctrairman, con- sisted of: H. T. Abernathy Jesse Andrews I Charles L. Brokaw J. A. Harzfeld Albert R. Jones L. L. Marcell George Melcher A. VV. Peet Sigmund Stern H. P. Treadway George R. Collett VV. T. Grant Lester VV. Hall Vviiiiam B. Henderson Arthur Niag Waiter S. iWcLucas Frank C. Niles J. Swift Mr. Howard Even after the merging of the two groups, the university backers pro- ceeded cautiously. A definite amount in financial assets was set up as a goal to be reached before the institu- tion was to open. Yet the University still was only a iiope to most people of Kansas City. Too many times had First Convocalion October I, 1033 Page 15 X 77 1412A n 1 1 ? 5 I . I X . , b Q- - ff ff V -xr. ff-.- - :1: i ie l il V A .pfcfr 3 14- - Q 3 S N ' 5 Q L!!

A 'iting story Student Government By V1Ro1N1A Comms VEN though the students were unorganized and without social functions, the University had one great asset-a spirit of pioneering to which every student could be thrilled as he went about his own particular task and school work. Therefore with this spirit as the basis, and with the assurance of the administration that student activities would not only be permitted, but en- couraged, a number ol projects were started upon immediately. A repre- sentative student group was elected by the school at large, called the Consti- tutional Committee of a Council. This committee consisted of Dan Dennis, Robert Torbert, Farel Swanson, Don White and James Sorency. For more than two weeks this com- mittee worked on a constitution, which was finally adopted by the student body with much disputing and wrang- ling, on the part of the freshman class. An election took place March 16, 1934, and in an informal assembly a few days later, the following officers were installed: Robert -lqorbert, presidentg Margaret lDinkyl Ramage, vice - presi- dentg Annette Meiler, secre- taryg and William Abernathy, treasurer. An early activity of the council was an effort to pro- vide some 'entertainment for the students and to give them an opportunity to know people outside of the small group with Page Z7 whom they had laeen associated all during their high school days. Early in lVlay came a student strilce. The council was deeply concerned in tnis, and endeavored to have three ol the professors who had been dis- missed hy the administration rein- stated. Upon finding that this could not loe accomplished, the students Went loaclc to their school Work after a short vacation of four hours for some of the more radical students. Last year's council, although headed hy the alole Honoralale Roloert Torhert, did little that was of material value. The vice-president and secretary re- signed, and no one Was particularly interested in the intricate details of running the government of the school. This year, however, the council has been most active and its Worlc has been highly successful.

This in itself is an accom- plishment which should not he over- looked as insignificant. This money was put in a fund, and the various recognized ciuhs on the campus may draw from it. Another accomplishment has heen the setting up of the Board of Con- trol. The purpose of these boards is to act as advisers to various extra-curric- ular activities, which include the Cra- taegus, the University News, the Uni- versity Piayers, and the Forensics group. These boards have been the subject oi much controversy, particu- iariy the annual and newspaper. Start- ing Iate in the year, they have not as yet had a fair triai. Vvith more time and study the causes for controversy will doubtless fade away. These hoards derive their power from the Student Council and are suhject to any acts or regulations passed hy the latter hody. This year's edition of the councii was first headed hy Charles fvveivet Eyesi ixiyers, choice of the efficient Co-op vote getting organization in last springss elections. Wir. Myerisiresigned in December for reasons hest known to himseii. After Christmas vacations it was decided that Vo-Camps ieader, Uncle Horace Kimhreii was hest quali- fied to take over the reins. Qpposed hy Co-op majority, Mr. Kimhreii, with a Hair for puioiicity and investigations rivaiing that of a senate committee, proceeded to instigate some much needed reforms. in all these activities the council was aided hy the aioie counsel of Dr. Trimhie. Other officers were: Farei Swanson, vice-presidentg Virginia Collins, secretary, and Jim Vvehh, treasurer. Representatives, two from each class, were Hubert Mcin- tosh and Howard Stout, seniors: Cath- erine Luhy and Sheiioy Storcic, juniors: Marty Burge and Jane Everest, sopho- mores, Niary Harhord and Gene Black, freshmen. Much effort and co-opera- tion has been evidenced and a definite step has heen taken toward the im- provement of social activities, friendli- ness, and last, hut certainly not least in importance, discipline. Page 19 A Word from Gur President-Elect fcontinued from Page ll, and only indirectly national, so its sup- port must come largely from the city whose name it hears and whose faith in learning and scholarship it ex- presses. it has already henetited hy the generosity of far-seeing citizens, hut its future usefulness and growth will depend on the extent to which all who pride themselves on being citizens oi no mean city express their loyalty and pride in tangible form. Let me give you for Kansas City and its University these words of an American poet, who Ioetter - than any other voiced the American dream: What Do You Think Endures? Do you think a great city endures? Gr a teeming manufacturing state Gr hotels ot granite and iron? Away! These are not to he cherished for themselves. They fill their hour, the dancers dance The musicians play for them The show passes, all does well enough of course All does very well, till one Hash of defiance. A great city is that which has the greatest men and women. Where the city of the cleanliness of the sexes stands Vvhere the city of the healthiest fathers stands Where the city of the hest-bodied mothers stands There the great city stands!

Physics, Mathematics Page 38 First Grads E, THE erudite members of the p class of '56, prognosticate with alacrity the elfulgent future of the omniscient first graduates of the Uni- versity ot Kansas City. We shall essay to ameliorate the incubus of our eco- nomic system, to decide the moot ques- tions of voracious boondoggling, to offer panaceas tor the vagaries of science, and to reveal to the world how it is possible to get through college without selling magazine subscriptions. In contrast with the endeavors of the underclassmen, the members of the senior class had their lingers in every- thing. The criminal records beside the senior pictures is sufficient evidence of this fact. ll it were not for the altru- istic nature ol the seniors, the under- classmen might have been able to study in the library, to pass the front steps without feeling like a Swiss mountaineer, to ascend the baclcstairs through clouds of smolre which would do justice to Dante,s lnlerno, to go to a mixer without being eradicated by some senior who had mixed too many, to apple-polish the prols without feel- ing that the upperclass competition was too great. The genius of the senior class was represented by Robert lVlyers, presi- dentg lVlary May lxflessenger, vice-presi- dentg Norman Nexxfcomb, secretary, and Earl Lee Moore, treasurer. lt might be well to state that these were not the only members ol the senior class who were active, yet it is some- By EARL LEE Moons what equivocal that the brain cells ol these executives functioned at all times. They were. however, sulliciently gifted mentally to appoint a business com- mittee to do all the work. This Senior Business Committee' was composed of Jane Darling, Carl Balsiger, Kenneth Banks, and Samuel Ellison. Sanguin- ary plots against the underclassmen and administration were contemplated in the weekly meetings ol the commit- tee. lxlr. lVloore,s brain progeny resulted in the enrichment of the treasury through the rattling of two copies ol the Crataegus. With reference to the senior class gilt, the gamut of suggestions reveals the loibles ot this group of nascent Myers lVl6SSCIlg6I' Newcomb lx!IOOI'6 Page 39 philanthropists. lVlr. Balsiger, a friend of the canine World, suggested the plant- ing ol eighty saplings. These would represent the memhers of the senior class, accorcing to Balsiger. Mr. lVlyers showeci his chivalry loy suggest- ing an electric elevator to replace the rope-pulled Hjumh Vvaiteryn, now in the lihrary. Nr. Moore showed a love for the esthetic when he hrought in several co-ecis that he considered would he satisfactory models for a nymph statue fountain. Miss Messen- ger postulated a Woven glass rug lor the new social room as a protection against the ravages of misplaced Nsnipesf, Miss Darling, close friend of the dean, thought a silver plated whistle would not he amiss. ln order that no time should he lost, the class set aloout the organization of an alumni organization While there was still consideralole douht as to whether several memhcrs of the class would loecome alumni. Plans for senior vveelc call for a formal dance, and an informal gatheririgi of some sort, per- haps a lorealcfast. The faith of the mem- hers of the class in the aloility of the officers and the Senior Business Com- mittee is evidenced loy the fact that, after the first class meeting the first Page .40 weelc ol school in the fall, it Was prac- tically impossilole to get enough people to meeting to Warrant the expenditure of enough energy to read the commit- teeys report. Lack of quorum rules placed Bolo Myers in the emloarrassing spot of not knowing whether the per- sons present Were sufficient to pass any resolutions or adopt any suggested plans. Another distinction possessed hy these First Grads is the fact that they have all done vvorlc at various other schools. These schools range all the Way from the larger universities on either side of us, to small schools scat- tered throughout the middle vvest. This condition is due to the fact that the University has heen in class sessions for only three years. A large majority of the students have done vvorlc at K. Cfs Junior College, and most of them vow that Worl: there is not a Whit harder than that imposed hy the younger U. profs. ln the matter of faculty advisers, it seemed that all the classes Wanted quiet, good-natured Dr. Bartle, geology chairman. But the seniors claimed they should have first call, and proceeded to annex Dr. Bartle and Dr. Hill. ex SOB 3qMo'e- N15 93 ' ation 355 51 X399 Kas 5 iixo xr 135 cngmk 5 ffffff X!

The Class of '37 HE class of 1937, better lcnown as the junior class will be the first class to contain members who have attended the University of Kan- sas City for the full four years. We are proud of this fact and proud of our class. During the past three years the junior class has been one of the most active at the University. For class activities remember the picnic in the spring ol ,54 when we were fresh- men? Anyone that was present will never forget it, never. For active stu- dents, we could name most of the students ever found in any activity: Farel Swanson, president of her class as a freshman, Student Council offi- cer as a sophomore, Crataegus Queen as a juniorg Virginia Collins, assist- ant editor of the Crataegusg Ray Holland, president of the junior class and business manager of the 1956 Crataegusg Shelby Storlc, twice editor of the University News: HBeau" Jar- BY RAY HOLLAND vis, tennis lcingg Vvilbur Phillips, vice- president of the junior class and on University News Staff: Jimmy Vvebb, treasurer of the Student Councilg John Carl Junior, "Politicianf, This could go on indefinitely.

The officers of this yearls junior class are as follows: Ray Holland . . . . President Wilbur Phillips . . . Vice-President Patricia Porterfield .... Secretary John Chaney . . . .

Page A7 'CA New Sun Rises" fcontinued from Page 161 pervaded the activities of students and faculty members. Yet there were prob- lems to be soived, especially that of the estabiishmentuof educational poi- icy and relations between the faculty, administration and board of trustees. In the second year, registration nearly doubled. There still were many unsettled issues concerning both the student body and the faculty. But ex- pansion of the physical plant con- tinued, with the completion of Science Hall in the spring-of 1955. It was the first structure to be built expressly for the University. The third year saw one of the most important moves in the establishment of the University of Kansas City. From the time its doors opened, the trustees had been planning for a man who should take the helm of the Uni- versity and guide the institution through its difficult days of develop- ment. In Gctober, 1955, the board named that man. Dr. J. Duncan Spaeth of Princeton University was appointed first president of the Uni- versity, to assume the full duties of his post at the start of the co11ege,s fourth year in the fall of 1956. Other important events in the third year were the awarding of bachelor of arts degrees to the University,s first grad- uating ciass of some ninety seniors, the addition of the second new struc- ture to the campus, the iibrary build- ingg and the decision to establish a summer school, first sessions coming at the close of the regular 1955-1956 academic terms. Such, then, in brief and sketchy summary, is the story of the Univer- sity of Kansas City up to the close of its third year as a iiving institution. What 1ies ahead for this great en- deavor is Iargely a matter of prophecyg but this much may be safeiy said: If the history of the University of Kansas City thus far may be taken as an indication of the guidance it will receive in the future, this 'anew sun" will never set over Kansas City.

The first half of the word comes from the Greek Hsophosf, meaning Hwisef, The last half likewise comes from the Greek and means Hfoolishf, The name is more applicalole to high school stu- dents, for students in the second year in college have certainly advanced he- yond the stage of laeing Hwise foolsf, Vve, of the U. of K. C., showed con- siderahle originality in rejecting the offer of the freshmen to sulbject them- selves to hazing, with the result that after their first orgy of self-imposed martyrdom, with its accompanying no- toriety, their caps were thrown into discardg hut not lnefore the loookstore had disposed of most of their stock, at a slight profit. Although one of the largest classes in the school, only one of the officers elected last spring returned. Quickly the vacancies were filled, leaving Betty lvlills as president, and installing lVlar- garet Riclge, lVlunson Howe, and Glen By EMILY WATSON Whitaker as vice-president, secretary and treasurer. These officers were peo- ple who were already prominent in various organizations on the Volker campus. ln the field of dramatics Ruth Vvar- rick and HDinkyH Ramage have led the way, not only for the sophomores, lout for the whole University. Redman Callaway has loeen acclaimed as one of the foremost formal deloaters, while .lane Everest and lwarty Burge, as Stu- dent Council representatives, have held up their end in the informal debates in which that august lyody indulges. Active in journalistic circles are George Charno, Harry Mather, Celia Redmond, and Betty Phillips, serving on both newspaper and yearhook staffs. with such a large group of intensely active students the sophomores are looking confidently toward the next two years and the things which they feel they will accomplish . . . things which will loe very loeneficial to the whole University.

From the first clay they have had lead- ers, although at times the upperclass- men have slightly resented some too aggressive moves. - They started this history-making year hy voting to wear freshman caps: however, their strealc of tenacity showed up, when, after the cap regu- lations were not strictly enforced, they stuhloornly refused to wear the pesliy things. The Frosh elections were the second proving grounds, for lo and hehold, they revolted at the established party practices of conducting halloting. An lnclependent Party, in a rapid growth, threatened to overthrow the supreme leaders, lout moderation finally re- sulted in a compromise. However, the Co-op Party swept its candidates into office through the Student Council, and the freshmen elected were Lloyd By WILBER MANSFIELD Doolittle, president, John Hensyl, vice- presidentg Hpunlcyn Vanderhoof, sec- retary, and Bob Vvillits, treasurer. Wlary Harloord and Gene Blaclc were chosen to represent the class in the Student Council. A new staclc of beginners has force- fully entered into all the existing ac- tivities, and many new endeavors have been greatly promoted hy this active group. A freshman hasehall team sturdily hattled for honors, while even the well-rooted fraternities tool: on new life with the advent of such quan- tities of new lolood. As the second semester slipped in, a lbetter organized class went forth to loattle. ln the mighty reformation that swept over the campus, the lowly un- derclassmen played a leading part. After all has been said and done, it will he seen that this year,s freshmen class is original and, most of all, com- posed of leaders. Page 60 The Social hirl By BETTY PHILLIPS S HE smooth rhythm ol Chuck- Donn and their lads swept the ac- cumulated dust and cohwelos from hetween the spokes of our HSocial Vvheelf, as it hegan turning with the first hig party of the year, sponsored hy the Faculty and Student Council of the University. The attendance was almost too good, and the capacities of the gym floor and the reception hall of Ad were more than reached helore the end of the dance. Fall styles were in full hloom, as new and old students exchanged greetings. We noted that the summer vacation had not dimmed the ardor ol our Student Council President, Charles Myers, for HDinky', Ramage, his lady lair. Glances strayed as the dancers swayed and the turn of the wheel should hring new affairs ol Cupid to gladden the heart ol man and maid. Vvhen the strains of UHome Sweet Homen pro- claimed the time ol departure, everyone lelt in a good humor, so it must have heen quite a shindig. As the lall season progressed, par- Page 61 ties ol varying lorilliance lollowed in swift succession. The eerie Eve ol Halloween found the "campus couplesw in full attendance at one of Dr. Sarkiss,s novel contrihutions to the social whirl. Alter the fashions ol all walks of life had heen appraised, hon- ors went to Lee Welch and Roy Beach for their costumes of gunny sacks. picnics, steak-lrys and treasure hunts seem to he gaining popularity, they kept the old wheel spinning during the autumn weeks. But the higgest turn to the wheel came Nov. 15, when the lVlen,s Pan-Hellenic threw a real party. We weren't ahle to attend, hut, ol course, we heard all ahout it, even to HHow handsome Don McDonald lookedgw HHOW Jimmie Herndon was too cute lor wordsgn and Hthe music was too, too devinef, And speaking ol music, looks as though Chuck Rouse is having things his own way in orchestra circles this year. The Sigma Beta party held Decem- her 23, at Mission Hills, really started the Christmas season off with a hang. Martin Every, formal occasion hrings forth many new dressesg this time red, sym- hoi of the Xmas spirit, held full sway in the world of colors present. Mfhe Lady fs, in Redn noticeahie were Patsy Porterfieid, Lillian Mercer, iwiiidred Vanderhoof, Marjorie Reed, Mary Ei- Ien Edstrom, and Betty Phillips. And did you notice the crepe formal fash- ioned hy Virginia Collins? It was an exquisite example of evening dress. The night was entrancing and the scent of gardenias filled the air as we danced hy each loving pair. in this romantic setting, James Vveioio placed the ring upon Uhern finger, for all the world to see. Not to he outdone hy the stiff shirts and flowing skirts of the Sigma Beta,s and their Hdatesf, Beta Beta Delta, a few nights later, tossed an eiahorate dance at the Hotel Baltimore. Louis Kuhn,s Qrchestra from K. U. furnished the music for the affair. Everything was just perfect! Margaret Ridge in ther rose taffeta and Berenice Drumm in her hlue, made a stunning contrast. URed howsn and Hheausn were in abundance. It was said that, HThe party was a howling successf, Cho-Chin added their hit to the Xmas whirl with a dinner dance at the Grill on December 26. Isahei Bash was looking very extra special in a red gown that was as cheerful as that tricky message over the door of the hallroom. The holidays really drew out the parties. When, on the night of De- cemher 27, we peeped in on the excep- tionally fine dance given hy the Chicicds at the Hotel Baltimore, Mary Agnes Kiughartt was coming through with flying colors. Quite a gracious hostess, we,d say. And as for U. and I., "W-Ei' heartily place our stamp of approval on the Usnappyn and fast moving evening shown us hy these Ugaisf, Said party was held at the Kansas Citian on December 25, and petite Jane Martin fiitted here and there certainly doing her share. But let the men have the wheel for awhile. The Kegons went very Hultra ultram with a private party of fifteen couples at Southern Mansion on Jan- uary 7. Another very exclusive affair was given hy the Delta Chi,s, along about the same time at the Muehie- hach. Ray Holland may he quoted as saying, "All the lads and all the Iassies had a high and hilarious timef, The wheel was rumbling along quite nicely when all of a sudden there came a dead stop. The A. P. 0.'s contri- hution to the Xmas HStompsH was sort of a fade out, in that their orches- tra failed to appear. No Music! No Dance! But in contrast these good sports pulled down a prize for having one of the swellest whiris of the year at the Plaza Hall on Fehruary 7. "The iiviusic Really Went Round and Roundf' and Glen Whitaker, one of our fanciest trippers of the light ian- tastic, who was doing his darndest on the fast numhers, could hardly keep up. But space is getting 'Bless and Iessn and the parties are growing Umore and moref' so it seems as if some of the more deserving affairs as Pan HeHs,, Qpen Houses, Buffet Suppers and Teas will have to he skipped with no insults meant. Page 62 So the wheel rolls onll Leap Year came, and it gave the Ugalsn a chance to turn the tables on the men. Who were the wallflowers on February 29? Hot Holt We lcnowl Revenge was sweet. But Hmumn is the word and we won,t mention names. Qn this night the Beta's and Sigma Beta,s both gave parties. Each was well at- tended and a novel and amusing time was enjoyed by all. At the Sigma Beta gathering, Nlr. Funk was a very popu- lar man, but very graciously stepped out of the picture when Bernard Jar- vis, Annette lVleiler,s favorite, was crowned HBull of the Ballf, The wheel goes on . . . we are get- ting most dizzyll The final burst of speed which the Vollcer Campus So- cial VV'heel put on this year was caused by the Spring Party sponsored by the Student Council on url-he night ol June I5th,'-but waitl our mistalcel We meant March 20.

HE advisory hoard, the editors, the students at large, and anyone else who happened to he interested had heen racking their collective hrains for four months in what looked like a hopeless endeavor to pick a name for the yearhook. Every few days Mr. Nyquist would make a remark to the editor to the effect that a name was needed. The editor would counter hy asking if Mr. Nyquist knew of a good one. Then they would dig out the names suhmitted in the contest, and go over them carefully for hidden mean- ings, hut they didn,t seem to work. One day the editor was telling Dr. Nlahony of this difficulty, and sug- gested that a man with a knowledge for names of plants should he ahie to think up a good one for a yearhook. Day or two came the result. To Dr. Mahony goes the distinction of sug- gesting name for University of Kansas City,s annual. To him also goes the hest wishes and hearty thanks of ad- visory hoard and editorial staff. Crataegus, pronounced kra-te-gus, is derived from the Greek kratos, mean- ing strength, and is the genus name Page 81 He named it. of the state flower of Missouri, the Vviid Hawthorne. It is appiicahie to the yearhook puhiication of the Uni- versity of Kansas City, in that this puhiication is the evidence of what is done hy the students in a strong insti- tution, situated in one of the leading cities of the Show-Me state. What im- piications this name may carry in the future we cannot attempt to forecast. That it is a very fitting name we are quite certain. We firmly heiieve that it will meet with your hearty approval, and that in future years the name Crataegus will hring instantly to mind outstanding yegfbooks from an even more outstanding University.

Howard, con- vocation speaker, stressed tile fact that everyone sbouid remember the Uni- versity wben making a will. immedi- ately afterward tile first semester opened and tiiat made tile tirird time in succession it bas, witirout a single variation in procedure, done just tbat. Tile Student Council announced its intention oi collecting tile all-student association lee and 560 University of Kansas City students immediately made known officially tile fact that tlmey were of auld Scotcii descent. lxrtlr. E. H. lvewcomb, executive secretary, "f'f1Y'f"11!" -J- VT? Cramer announced tbat tlle new library build- ing would be open sometime in Oc- tober. lvlr. J. Gillette Kibbey, informal member oi tbe Student Christian Asso- ciation, denied tbat be bad ever de- claimed against Elmer Gantry. All fresbmen were oriented by buge vats of talk on scbooi spirit, poured in ten- gallon syrupy kegs over their uncom- mon beads. ,According to time Kansas City Star, Dr. J. Duncan Spaetb ot Princeton University was appointed by tlle Board of Trustees to tlwe office of President of tbis University. Tire news tbat iresbmen were to be burdened witlr tlie task oi wearing stale old green Page 83 caps went side by side with the news that psychology department tests re- vealed 90 to Q5 percent of all freshmen were color blind. lVlr. H. Roe Bartle, Kansas City Chief Boy Scout Execu- tive, trumpeted for exactly one hour before 200 students at assembly, and immediately alter Dean 0. G. P. U. Sanford gave lor the first time his reading ol that line old ballad: Hvvhat a nice university my university would beg if all of its students were just like me. Colonel F. C. Whitten addressed the International Relations Club and brayed his disapproval ol pacilism, and though his speech was not so hot the snake dance with which he accom- panied it was not bad at all. Four freshmen and Horace Kimbrell told the Student Christian Association that what was wrong with this University was that there were not enough pen- cil sharpeners hanging on the walls. Mr. E. H. Newcomb, executive secre- tary, announced that he expected the new library building to be open some- time in November. Mr. William C. Troutman, new addition to the Dra- matics department, stated in an official bulletin that he was certain no other dramatics instructor on the lace of the globe could possibly equal him in powers and technique. Mr. E. H. New- comb, executive secretary, announced that he expected the new library build- ing to be open sometime in December. The University Review, competitor to the University News, received favor- able comment from University of Kan- sas' Chancellor Lindley, who in turn received unfavorable comment from the assembly he addressed in Decem- ber. Mr. Charles Myers resigned as president of the Student Council, and alter one week spent in suitable grey mourning Mr. Horace Kimbrell, oi- licial oxygen tank ol the debate squad, was indillerently selected to succeed him. Mr. Vvm. C. Troutman trotted out his initial opus, Mldhe Cradle Songf, and a tremorously sympathetic audience shed sporadically exactly six tears. And there was never at all in the minds ol any students a single doubt of the incontrovertible lact that the Student Council is Your Council. The campus lake froze over and skaters came and made use of it, and that's probably the only use ever made of it that didn,t involve leaving some- thing there. The Student Council de- cided that shucks we haven,t legis- lated a thing for darn near two months, and thus the Boards of Con- trol act was passed. The University News staff was just oh so delighted with the selection of Mr. Roland VV. Funk, the accounting department's biggest add and subtract man, as its adviser, and his latherly smile and firmly guiding hand was just such a big help that the News came out live more times before it went broke. Mr. Horace Kimbrell and Mr. E. H. New- comb got together secretly and co- operatedg with the result that New- comb agreed to pay one or two of Kimbrelrs activities' expenses, some day, some time, some how. The De- bate Squad migrated to Columbia, lvlo., and tornadoes swept that sec- tion of the state. Dr. Harry J. Sarkiss fcontinued on Page 120, ' Page 84 Women's Athletics HIS year, under the direction of lVliss Violet Boynton, the girls' physical education department has had a well organized program consisting of hockey, soccer, archery, ring tennis fdeclc tennisl, hasehall, volley hall and rope jumping. There was adequate equipment for ali the games. The out- door program was not complete due to the fact that the fields were not fin- ished. When the weather hecame too cold the girls turned to haslcethaii practice, cage hail, volley hall, handhall, and remedial gymnastics. Of ali the games mentioned ahove, cage hail was un- douhtediy the favorite. A tournament was held after school hetween the up- perclassmen and the freshmen, with the upperclassmen defeating the fresh- men two games out of three. At the heginning of the second semester, cage hall and volley hall tournaments were held in all of the classes. As electives, tap dancing, natural dancing, and fencing were offered. AI Spaht in- structed the classes in tap dancing and lwiiss Boynton instructed those in na- tural dancing. Fencing has also heen offered as an elective under the direc- tion of Dr. E. H. Hoicomh. I During the spring, hasehall, archery, tennis, volley hall, ring tennis and fencing were offered. Swimming was given four days a weelc at the Steuhen Cluh under the supervision of lVlrs. Charla Vvilson, Boh Grafrath and Boh Clemenson. At the end of the first semester there was By CELIA REDMOND a swimming meet followed hy a dinner at the Ricardo Hotel. Horsehaclc riding is taught as part of the athletic program at Meadow Lake Riding Academy. At a meeting shortly hefore Christ- mas, a committee, consisting of Jessie Carracciolo, chairman, Gretchen Al- lenhach, Patricia Clarlc, Emma Jane Pearson, and Janice Taihot, was formed to gather information concern- ing athletic associations in other uni- versities and to write a constitution suitahle for a Vvomanys Athletic Asso- ciation to he formed on this campus. The first meeting of the new organiza- tion was Fehruary 15. There was a small but enthusiastic group present which planned the first social activity, a slcating party followed hy a tea. The first extra-curricular athletic activity was a series of haslcethall games played in the Barstow gymnasium. Archery. swimming, horsehaclc riding, tennis tournaments, steal: fries and various other social and athletic activities have heen planned hy this group. The VV. A. A. intends to he organized and he- come a memher of the American Fed- eration of Coiiege Vvomen hy the end of spring. lVliss Boynton is the ad- viser of the VV. A. A. If there are to he any orchids given away we suggest that they go to Miss Violet Boynton, for huilding up the girls' physical education department in one year with so iittie enthusiasm to huild with as she had at the first of this year. Page 85 Mens Athletics MPROVEMENT . . . this has loeen the lceynote word for the 'Physical Education Department during the last year, as the completed loloclc of new courts and the numerous activities in- troduced for the first time on the cam- pus will amply prove, however, the physical changes do not accurately tell the story of gym worlc at this college. There is an omnipresent feeling of goocl-fellowship and sportsmanship permeating the atmosphere, and there is that unity and closeness of relations that larger universities do not olotain. The recently completed outdoor fields and courts are part of a program that will, within a year or two, include a large gymnasium, lout even without these additions fit is true that until the second quarter of the second semester the equipment was quite limitedi there would still have loeen that invaluable spirit. Practically every type oi exercise is offered 'to the energetic student wish- ing to develop himsellg footloall, has- lietloall, loasehall, tennis, horsehaclc rid- ing, handloall, volley loall, looxing, wrestling, swimming, tap dancing, loadminton, and golf. ln fact, the group By VV1LBER lx!IANSFIELD of some 150 pupils in the various classes have had troulole in choosing loetween the many equally attractive sports. Dr. Kennedy, director of the menls athletics, is a Doctor of Medicine and has a masteris degree, in Physical Edu- cation. It is a never ending jolo lieep- ing the wild lounch of shouting young men corralled, yet he never seems to lose his jovial good nature. Doc oc- casionally talces a hand himself in some lagging game, just to Ushow ,em howf' It is his aim to give the school the high- est type ol intramural athletics. The square stone huilding at the north end of the campus with its ad- jacent courts is the field house head- quarters for the divers activities and at present a partial gymnasium. Although the ceiling is not high enough for a spectacular hrand of loaslcetloall, loud sounds indicating an exciting game usually are issuing from this small lout mighty edifice. The University oi Kansas City may not loe a leader in the sports field for the surrounding countryside, hut it ol- fers plenty of good, clean fun and ex- ercise to its students. Vvhatls more, plans for the future are even hrighter. Page 86 'Q 14: Activities By WILBER MANSFIELD T IS late in the afternoon, long after classes have been dismissed, hut in some small room in the University of Kansas City there is a resolute group of young men and Women indus- triously discussing one phase of college life. Perhaps in some other near-hy- room, equally firm and interested stu- dents, helonging to a different ciuh, are dehating prohlems of utmost interest to each listener. These organizations, along with many other cluhs, con- tribute a vital portion of college spirit, and K. C. U. is well supplied with such hodies, since there is one for prac- tically every field of endeavor. Considering first the purely ac- ademic groups, we find the many as- sociations for specialized study in some particular line fthey often consist al- most entirely of majors in that depart- mentf. The unlearned spectator does well to veer away from these traps of learning, for it takes a considerable knowledge even to keep oneis self re- spectg however, the memhers, those t ?'?'ffz.. QMNK demons of classified Wisdom, are really fine fellows with good horse sense. The Circle Francaise is one of the oldest of the first type, what is more, in the period of its existence the treas- ury actually has huiit up a surplus. Many social functions, such as plays, teas, and parties are held and the un- usual thing is that no language hut French is spoken . . . quite interesting, hut a hit involved at first. When one comes to that old science of mathematics, it would seem natural to find an equally old hody pondering on the intricacies of figures, hut the math ciuh, Delta X, is less than a year old, although even now quite active. New and unusual proofs of theories are presented hefore each session, to he ahsorhed, reflected or entirely hlasted. In one respect is it diametri- cally opposite to the French Club, for there is an unusual dearth of girls. Juniors and seniors majoring in husiness are all present or prospective fcontinuecl on Page 1041 i A Page 87 --W-wx FRONT ROW: Baisiger, Beach, F. KHVOliHOS, Sariciss, Reicilmeier, D.

Periods of spasmodic success have dotted the life of the News. Friction, both internally and externally, has kept it from gaining the place it might otherwise have reached. In spite oi financial difficulties and the ridicule of persons who were maimed by vari- ous articles, the News was managed to give a rather creditable account of itself. The determination of the editors to propound their theories, although never reconcilable to some, has reaped certain converts, and the battle of view- points rages less fiercely than at the opening of school. The manipulation of responsibilities, powers, and the staff itself has brought the result, in the opinion of many, that great strides of improvement are being made in the content oi various issues. The tendency is to mold student thought by wholesome, constructive interpretation and criticism. By ROLAND VV. FUNK Considerable credit must be given those scribes whose deep interest in the existence of the school paper has caused them to focus their undivided attention to tha task at hand. Mast venerable of cohorts are James Hall, Shelby Storck, and Harry McDonald. These have been aided by many others. Editorials, news stories, and feature articles by these fellows struck many a sore spot in campus affairs, fre- quently drawing scorn, occasionally investigations by Student Council. Nevertheless, true to their convictions. but yielding to wisdom, the contents of the University News carried before the students the issues of import. The mission of the News is being attained, namely, recording the de- tailed events of student life and the reflections of student thought. As a re- sult of publicizing many students and faculty members, with their peculiar idiosyncrasies and characteristics, as well as memorable events of the school year, the University News lives and contributes to the traditions of a great university-to-be.

From this institution we will carry memories of the things that we have done and said. But as we get farther away from school it loecomes increas- ingly hard for us to recall those things ,-4 things which at the time seemed un- iorgetahle. rl- he Crataegus is to help you recall those things. Who are the persons responsilole for the Crataegus? Let us talce up iirst the husiness staii. Originally headed loy Howard lVlay, it was talcen over by Ray Holland in mid-year, and to him goes the gold medal fRay says it was hrassi. Without money there could he no yearlooolc. Ray, with the help oi Dan Dennis, Diclc Straier, and Bolo lVlyers, has done a monumental joh oi raising the money for this hook in the minimum oi time availahle. Ray has also made valuahle suggestions on the treatment oi certain events with which he was more familiar than the other memhers of the staff. Un the editorial side first laurels go to Virginia Collins and Jane Darling. These two have done an immense amount of worlc and done it well. To Virginia went the worlc oi dogging emloryonic authors to get in their copy, and then she had to checlc for mis- talces and proofread loeiore and after printing. To Jane fell most oi the worli of mounting the individual pictures. Page 102 Exacting, with iittie chance to exercise that creative touch that the true artist loves, this joh was done with a mini- mum of errors, most of which were due to my crude attempts to help. Earl Moore had a joh cut out for him in compiling the activities of the senior class memhers, hut he did it weii. Mar- garet Happer, Gordon Suor, and Hpunkyu Vanderhooi did a swell joh of checking spelling of names, and names against pictures and classifica- tion for the other classes. Annette Meiier drew the heart-rending task oi listing and checking all organization pages. To her goes our verhai orchid. To the writers whose names appear with their articles, many gardenias. To the artists, who patiently created with no assurance that their work could he used, due to financial limitations, my sincere thanks. Betty Cramer, Betty Mills, Ernestine Smith, Jane Martin, Jeanette Spears: all these did plates. Clark Biocher, who did the end sheet, a section head or so, and innumerahie excellent posters, is a hoy you should keep your eyes on. He is going to he extremely vaiuahie to future editors, and should really get along in the ar- tistic worid. Boh Higgs, who did the last plate in the hook, is a commercial artist. He is a chum of Pat Dunn,s and did the joh gratis. Wish we could have used some of his murals. They,re swell. My secretary is Dorothy Qwings. She hroke me in to the joh of dic- tating a letter. Some fun. The office staff and officials of the administration have been invaiuaioie. Mrs. Score par- ticularly could he counted on to do anything requested in the shortest possihie time.

Since membership is quite limited and there are almost fifty students eligible, there is a keen rivalry for admission. Si-nguiariy distin- guished from the other groups on the campus, it is composed entirely of boys. After a poor start and a period of very iean times, the University Players, nucleus of all schooi dramatics, reor- ganizedg in fact, it completed a memor- able year with two plays, classed by the theatre-going public as Hhitsf' This association became active only during the Hbuiid-upu for piays, but has many ioyai supporters. Beionging to a slightly different category is the international Relations Club . . . a big titie, but donit iet it frighten you away . . . for it includes students specializing in various fields of learning, yet all interested in present day history. Nationally chartered, and presenting interesting and distin- guished speaicers bi-weekly, it probably leads the pack for actual strength ot numbers. Members of the National Honor So- ciety in high school, who desire to re- tain their iofty position above the com- mon horde, have, with a modicum of successbeen trying to form a college chapter to promote the principles of in- tensive study. A body that has declined somewhat in the past year but which is stiii strong, is the Student Christian Asso- ciation. it is practically the same as the Hi-Y of preparatory school and as the Y. M. C. A., by whom it is spon- sored. Interesting speakers on timeiy subjects are monthly presented to an eager and attentive audience. Sponsored by a wiiiing faculty, en- couraged by a progressive administra- tion, eniivened by the problems they present and made firm and solid by the groups that organized them, these or- ganizations present a type of extra-cur- ricuiar work that is as heipfui as the schooiroom work itself: they are the basis of harmonious cooperation be- tween tacuity and student.

Young was horn in Can- ton, China, in May of 1907. He was educated entirely in his native coun- try, receiving an A. B. degree in Polit- ical Science from the National Chi- Nan University of Shanghai, in 1950. Chi-Nan is considered one ol the fin- est governmental universities in mod- ern China. lVlr. Young worlced in the Depart- ment oi Education oi the Canton local government during the two years fol- lowing his graduation and was an as- sistant editor on a Shanghai news- paper for another year. Still seelcing to realize his amlmition of a higher education, Young came to this coun- try to continue study in some graduate school. His first choices were Colum- hia University in New Yorlc City or the University oi Missouri. However alter an examination of his transcript, it was found that the differences in re- quirements lbetween Chi-Nan Univer- sity and our schools created a gap in his Political Science degree. On the advice of his uncle, Dr. C. B. Young, he entered this University to complete his Political Science course luefore en- tering the Columlaia University. Young is well satisfied with his worlc here and thinlcs the University uvery modern." ...,1i1-l Undergraduate students from other countries are Crisanto Qchoco Cachero, Naguilian, La Union, Philip- pine lslands, who is a freshman.

Though in the iast stages oi hyperneurasthenia, the cast presented with pardonaioie pride its maiden production. Virtue f- or was it industry -I gained its just rewards, for success was theirs. in extenuating support of this gascon- ade we point with pride to the pages of that iustian hit of journalism, The University News. Hpiay Scores Hitn admits astounding headiine. in in- creduious oioiuscation we continue the articie to its conclusion, finding not one trace of its usuai acrimonious sar- casm. HHam Ahsent From Drama" it further testifies. Friends, We suhmit Page 110 to you this elucidating interrogationg. HFor what other event of local, na- tional, international, or cosmic impor- tance has The University News set aside for so much as the space of a number three news article its holocaus- tic policy?H In reverence and adulation we can only say-hoys, it must have been good! The play is designed and directed at the very vulnerable pericardium, and a good cry was enjoyed hy all those who hrought handkerchiefs fthe other two dozen of the crowd of 500 persons resorting to sniffling, furtive dahhings, or out-and-out tricklingj The unpre- tentious story concerns the rearing of a foundling in a convent of Dominican nuns. At this point the writer feels constrained to mention fwith apologies to Dr. August'-wonder if this will make the APU the marked develop- ment of criminal tendencies which ap- peared in the youngest memher of the cast. Master Willie Bill Sarkiss, infant son of our own HDoc,H while portray- ing the role of the hahy Theresa fmay he forgive his parents for this indig- nityj maliciously and ingeniously stole the show! The identification of the other mem- hers ofthe cast, swathed as most of them were in the ennohling garh of Dominican sisters presented a perplexing prohlem. An expeditious consultation of the program proved that the consecrated young novice whose religious devotion, though sincere and heautiful, could not still the inherent maternal yearn- ings for a child to love and care for, was really Ruth Vvarrick. The majestic Mother Prioress was Mary Gilchrist, the sweetly soiicitous Mother Mistress of Novices was Janice Talhot the acrimonious Sister Crudification was Vera Gregory, the pusiilanimous Sis- ter Inez, Stella Shea, and the indus- trious Sister Tornero, Rosalea Newton. Among the novices Geraldine Reed was shrinking, Elsie Kratchman was mischievous, and Mildred Vanderhoof was Ianguishing and love-sick. -John Adams as the doctor and only man permitted within the convent was hearty and joviaig Barbara Montrose and Georgette Liston as the monitors were accommodating and Joe Cas- tagno as HA voice from afarn was Hsat- isfactoryf, The youthful lovers pre- sented pleasing contrast, hringing vi- tality and the joy of living into the serene surroundings. Margaret Ram- mage was the petite and playful Theresa, so beloved hy both Sister Johanna and Antonio. Pat Dunn was the attractive, verile young suitor with whom life in the World promised to he an exciting adventure to the naive maid of the convent. Barring printers' mistakes these were certainly the names of lo, these many of our fellow students, each of whom is to he congratulated for a strictly expurgated portrayal of character with a minimum of suhjective personality projection which secured for the per- formance a convincing illusion of reality. . In answer to puhlic demand faha we fooled you - there is onej for some- thing Hmodern and funnyn the Uni- versity Players presented for their sec- Page 111 ond opus, Philip Barry,s uHoliday.,, The results were gratifying and the play enjoyed a successful run of two nights in mammoth Epperson Hall, play- ing to practically capacity audiences. The play offered much food for serious contemplation aside from the purely ephemeral and slightly inebriate mad- ness of the gay and amusing people it introduced. Dick Barnes as Johnny Case had a difficult time convincing his fiancee, the beautiful and charm- ing Juiia Seton, of the merit of his Hdesign for Iivingf, wherein he pro- poses to take his leisure at this end ,- Hplay young, work oidu is his motto. Ruth Vvarrick as Julia was strongly seconded by phlegmatic and pros- perous Papa Seton played by John Hensyl. Joe Castagno as Ned Seton was mildly philosophical, and usually slightly inebriated as a protection against boring society life. Linda Seton tEmma Jane Pearson, also fed up with the life she finds very empty stated succinctly that money is the god of the Seton family. Mary Agnes Klughartt and George Charno as Laura futoo too divinenf and Seton fumind it we talk a little businessuf Cram were two par- ticularly obnoxious cousins who added good bits of comedy of manners. Nick and Susan Potter were the witty and carefree couple whom Linda designates as her Hmodeisn and about whom most of the madcap comedy and scintillating humor of the play hinged. Kenny Spry as Nick stopped the show with a par- ticularly choice bit oi burlesque on the big business man,s usuccess storyu and Dorothy Barnett as his wife played up well to his gag lines. It was vivacious Lin a w 0 Y took matters into her own hands, ked off with the discarded suitor oi the supercilious Julia and the curtain fell upon a group of socialites with d h finall wal veneer slightly cracked each con- tumaciously determined to have the last laugh. The play is a succession of delight- ful absurdities with a generous dish of intelligent contemporary commen- taries - the resulting potion proving pleasing to the sophisticated university audience. As final attestation of the remarkable reputation of the Univer- sity Players may it here be observed that without benefit of aid or abetment from the University News fsaid organ- ization being in another state of pe- riodical hibernation, the production was nevertheless and notwithstanding, a success fputting it mildly as it were, your reviewer having gradually lapsed into plain ordinary English, the brand preferred by all but the ubiquitous Mr. Kimbrell on the University campus., As is customary we consumate this bit of balderdash with cursory conjec- tures concerning the future of the Uni- versity theatre. lts culmination may be still to be reached as a final production is promised before the end of the term. At this point however it is appropriate and well-merited that the esoteric Uni- versity Players and their competent conjurer, Mr. Troutman, receive the conglomerate congratulations of the critical coterie as wen as the spontane- ous sanction oi the mundane masses.

B a The star of Wliown Hall Tonightu was born in Cambridge, Ylassachus- etts about forty years ago and was christened John Florence Sullivan. l'le first aspired to become a juggler and while doing stack-boy work in the pub- lic library he touched not at all the volumes of classic lore and instead delved into huge tomes on juggling . . . both lay and professional juggling. At length, after much perturbation he was able to keep three individual oranges aloft at once . . . a feat of promising possibility. These three fruity pellets, says Fred Allen, were the turning point of his life for-not long afterwards the library gave a benefit vaudeville and the lean lrish boy stole the show. Other ama- teur theatricals followed. 'Gln those daysf' spake Allen, Hamateurs got the hook. Today they get the hook-up. Haln With the above observations on human machinations Fred Allen is more than vicariously acquainted, for on divers occasions he has received both treatments. As Fred James he toured success- fully in vaudeville, billed as Ml-he VVorld's Worst llugglerf, His act was an exhibition of poor juggling and good wisecracks. His fame spread as far as Australia and he toured in "Down Undern for a season. Un re- turning to New York he changed his name to Fred Allen for a single per- formance at a New York theatre, made a hit, and decided to remain Fred Allen. Broadway opened her doors to luim in the Hpassing Shown of 1922.

The whole thing went oil splendidly except for one minor mishap. Climhing the -steps to receive the first prize ol fifteen dollars, Pat was so excited that he tripped over his long slcirt and fell full length on the floor, slcinning his nose and winning further applause lrom the audience who thought it was part ol the act.

Two years ago the Dunn family moved from Anderson to Kansas City to give Pat a loetter chance with his singing. But times were hard and no- loody was paying money to hear an un- lmown looy sing. Pat got a jolo as lous hoy in a local night clulo. The man- ager discovered his voice and pro- moted him to loe a singing waiter . . . hut with no raise in salary. Then a local drug company spon- sored a series of amateur contests at Fox theatres throughout the middle west. Contests were old stuff to Pat and he entered confidently, sure of suc- cess. Pat sang in the preliminary tryout in his neighborhood theatre and won easily. He sailed through the semi- finals the same way. Then came the finals. Pat sang again and sat haclc contentedly to await the judgels de- cision. Alter several days the win- ners were announced. And the name of Roger Patriclc Erin Dunn was not among theml Pat was surprised and humiliated. But most of all he was mad. Fighting madl And when the lrish get mad, they do something aloout it. l'le,d show lem, determined Pat stuloloornly. l-le,d enter a contest that would malce the one he,d lost loolc like thirty cents. lvlaior Bowes, Amateur l-lourl That would loe something worth while. With the aid ol friends who were interested in his singing he was ahle to malce the trip. Pat wasnst nearly so sure ol himself this time. The hours he waited with three hundred other hopeful aspirants for an audition made him less certain. But he passed the audition. And then came the loroad- va cast. g nl was scared to death when l got out theref, he confesses, Ulout lVlajor Bowes was liind and encouraging. And then l rememloered losing the Kansas City contest, and it made me so mad all over again that l forgot aloout loeing afraidf, The Dunns are a musical family. Patls father died twelve years ago, lout his mother, lVlrs. Jennie Dunn, plays the piano and sings. A lorother, Elallas Dunn, is a saxophonist in a St. Louis orchestra, and his sister plays all his accompaniments. Pat,s musical future loolcs bright now, and his amhition to malce a name for himself seems assured. He has a regular engagement singing over WDAF, the radio station ol the Kan- sas City Star. This, with other local engagements, is enahling him to worlc his way through the University of Kan- sas City and to continue his vocal training. He was one of the entertain- ers on the Will Rogers lvlemorial pro- gram, featuring many prominent Hol- lywood stars, which was held recently in Kansas City. Pat himself may loecome a screen actor. His tall figure and engaging lrish smile showed to such advantage in a lvlajor Bowes movie short that a Hollywood studio is negotiating for his services, and he may he offered a con- tract.

Dean Q. Cv. P. AU. Sanford lelt Kansas City for the Qzarlcs, where they don,t smolce anything but corn- sillc and where he could thus rest his olfactory organ. lvir. E. H. Newcomb, executive secretary, announced that the new library building would be open sometime in January and 450 bacteria issued a bulletin stating their intention of occupying the University pond whether or no University officials liked it. When the University News stated in print the indisputable fact that the front steps were cool in the morning, were sat on by Beauty Queens at noon, and then gave off steam in the even- ing, mothers of children in all lands irately issued rebuttals. fThere,s a pun there, Mr. E. H. Newcomb, executive secretary, announced that the new li- brary building would be open some- time in February. Dr. E. C. Kennedy asserted openly and vigorously that he didn't lcnow if the University intended to enter a Golden Cvloves team. The VVomen,s Athletic Association was formed and boy have we got big mus- cle. The Student Council announced its intention of going to worlc, and whether that means on a road gang, outfitted with chains, sledges and striped suits, has as yet been undeter- mined by general censure, and it was much remarked upon that the pleated pants oi a council member were much remarked upon. Mr. Frank K. Kelly, publicized scrivener of this University, received five inches of publicity on page lour of the Journal-Post and NumberlX5546, escaped from Lansing, received 80 inches on pages one and two. The zoology department was pleased with the arrival of two new frogs, who were lax about expressing their own pleasure. More and more dogs became seen on the campus in greater numbers and more varied poses. Dr. L. M. Birlchead announced in as- sembly that war and fascism were hard upon the nation, and University of Kansas City students went home and read Vina Delmar. Hitler entered the Rhineland and the University of Kan- sas City entered the new library, and both events were news-worthy because both were unexpected. Dr. J. Duncan Spaeth came baclc for more in his sec- ond visit to the University oi Kansas City, and Senor Diego Riviera came bobbing up for more in the University Review, and it was firmly established that the Student Council is your council. As we go to press the election egg is being prepared, which will certainly decay by the last of April and be thrown at the student body by the middle of May.

I I Throne Room of MBIBED hy university students this year was a conglomeration of art, literature, music, politics, epigrams, platitudes, threats, warnings, etc., at the weekly Wednesday assemhiies. Convocations were situated originally in the institution,s renovated garage and later, with the appearance of the Iihrary, in the second floor loft of that edifice. Never were the surroundings delicate or conducive to artistic tem- peramentsg never was the attendance gratifying to the administrators, never did the speaker or entertainer on the platform receive full approval from cynical college youth, hut the atmos- phere made little difference. There was ever present that sanctified air trans- pired hy esthetic souls, that glorious spirit of pure ohjectivity, that ephem- eral iight which exists only when cre- ative minds have coincided, produced their sparks, and emitted their scin- tillating rays. Hence was the assemhly room ever a Holy of Holies, a sanctum sanctorum, a chamher of culture. Highlights: Sept. 18'-Executive Secretary E. H.
