N PRESENTING to you the tirst yearbook oi this Universityg
the staff ot the Crataegus teeis that a statement and explana-
tion ot our aims will materiaity add to the enjoyment which you
have a right to expect from the possession oi an annual. 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. '

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
A' native of Philadelphia, Dr. Spaeth
graduated from the University of
Pennsylvania hefore taking graduate
work at the University of Leipzig, in
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.

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-
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

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
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
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.

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
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.

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

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,
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
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. Included in its list
ol accomplishments is the arranging of
a student activity lee which is, given
.,L. . ,
ixiyers Torhert fd Kimhreii , i
to the Student Council hy the admin-
istration. 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.

was first headed hy Charles fvveivet

SALMONS, GEORGE B.
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
With reference to the senior class
gilt, the gamut of suggestions reveals
the loibles ot this group of nascent
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
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
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.

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:

cer as a sophomore, Crataegus Queen

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

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
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.

HIS yearls freshmen have loeen re-

originality as well as scholastic aloility.
From the first clay they have had lead-

men have slightly resented some too
aggressive moves. -

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

The night was entrancing and the
scent of gardenias filled the air as we
danced hy each loving pair. in this

world to see.
Not to he outdone hy the stiff shirts
and flowing skirts of the Sigma Beta,s

few nights later, tossed an eiahorate

a dead stop. The A. P. 0.'s contri-

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
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.

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
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
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,

When the weather hecame too cold

cage hail, volley hall, handhall, and
remedial gymnastics. Of ali the games
mentioned ahove, cage hail was un-

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

tural dancing. Fencing has also heen
offered as an elective under the direc-
tion of Dr. E. H. Hoicomh. I

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,

first extra-curricular athletic activity
was a series of haslcethall games played
in the Barstow gymnasium. Archery.

is that unity and closeness of relations
that larger universities do not olotain.
The recently completed outdoor fields

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
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

HE University News, for the aca-
demic year 1955-36, has striven to
maintain, if not gain, its proper place
of importance in the sphere of the
University,s campus life.
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
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

N A iew more days we will he 'shon-
ingn for the final exams. Whatever
the results, summer will come, hring-
ing a welcome rest to students and
teachers alilce. Some will continue in
summer school, others will worlc in
order to continue next fall. The seniors
will, we sincerely hope, he relieved oi
the necessity of talcing a Hvacationf,
find good positions, and settle down to
the business of loeing Johnny K.
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.
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

NE oi the familiar ligures on the
campus the past year has been
that of Yut Vvai Young, an ambitious
student from' our neighbors across the
Pacific. lVlr. 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-
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

acity some sagacious epitomist has
deciared that the theatre should he the

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 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

formance a convincing illusion of

versity Players presented for their sec-
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

the supercilious Julia and the curtain
fell upon a group of socialites with

tumaciously determined to have the
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.

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

ager discovered his voice and pro-
moted him to loe a singing waiter . . .

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.
