MEL KOONTZ was schooling a "big cat' for a new movie
when Penn Phillips got to talking cigarettes with him.
Perhaps, like Mr. Phillips, you, too, have wondered if there
is a distinct difference between Camels and other cigarettes.
Mel Koontz gives his slant, above. And millions of men
and women find what they want in Camels. Yes, those
costlier tobaccox in Camels do make a difference!

"Let's A11 Go Bavarian"
This business of c ribb i n g,
Qcheating, copying, etc.j, can be
divided into three general ways
of doing the dishonorable thing.
Qlj Uninspired peekingg QZQ
whispering, and Q35 hand signals.
Peeking, the method used by
the uninspired, is the simplest.
Also there are three sources of information open
to you: your neighbor's paper, your C1858 'CCX'C, 01'
your crib Qprepared notesj. W
A helpful neighbor might slide his paper closer
and aid you if you're stuck on a question. Of
course, you can cover your eyes with your hand
and take a quick glance at the closest paper. For
a cover-up, a pencil can be dropped accidentallyg
then, as you bend to get it, a hasty look might
prove beneficial. There are several ways to ma-
neuver around and get a better lookg rearrange
your books, coat or possessions around you, reach
for a handkerchief and, if you must bend over to
reach it, so much the better.
To crib by using the textbook is a method de-
manding arduous practice and highly developed
technique. The textbook placed under the chair
may be used to advantage by leaning over after
dropping a pencil.
A skilled cribber is able to open a textbook in
front of his chair vvith his feet. This is a tough trick
for it is hard to find the right place in the book.
The next two methods depend upon the prof. lf
his back is turned for a few moments, the text may
be quickly slipped from under the chair, opened, and
slipped back again. If the prof is very careless, as
some are, the open book may be placed on a chair
beside you. Advanced students of the noble art of
cribbing are disdainful of this method.
The third method by perceptual aid, is by look-
ing at your crib. There are many places where a
crib can be hidden. The pockets are always good,
but too common for most cribbers. The crib may
be slipped up the sleeve Chard to work during
spring exams when sleeves are rolled upj. Cribs
can be kept in purses and noted when getting a
handkerchief or eraser.
The Blue Book is a fine place for inserting notes
or they may even be written in the back of a Blue
Book. Some profs have caught this trick and remedy
it by trading the Blue Books. The smart cribbers
remedy this by keeping an extra book Qcontaining
the cribj and passing another in, then exchanging
the one they get for their prepared one.
Notes can be put in a desk drawer or printed on
the bottom of a desk drawer. Be sure and try the
drawer before the exam, they often squeak, and
sometimes stick. Fat people should not try this one.
Certain names, dates, etc., may be printed on the
hand or arm in ink or pencil . . . but this is risky!
You'd have a devil of a time explaining it.
Small cribs can be put inside socks, cuff of pants,
shoe, fold of turned-up sweater, inside shirt and
numerous other places.
The second general method of cribbing is whisp-
ering. The conventional way to get info is by
whispering behind the hand or handkerchief. The
few words one gets by dropping a pencil are usual-
ly too brief to be satisfactory. An individual with
an unblushing, naive countenance may ask for an
eraser and get some information with it. The best
way is to take advantage of a general commotion
such as outbreak of laughter or an interruption
The third general method is the hand signal
method, best used during a true-false exam. One
extended finger-true. Two extended fingers-
Some prerequisites for professional standing in
the Cribbing Association are:
1. Good standing with the prof.
2. No blush.
3. Naive face.
4. Certain minimum of dashing courage.
5. Ability to rationalize that uneasy feeling of

IN THE UNION STATION
V , A Things To Come
, ' J Recently we were admitted to
, that sanctuary adjoining the front
office, called the "plans" room.
There were several hundred draw-
.- ings. About two hundred of that
i number had been piled in a corner
for the janitor to collect in the morning. These
were "old" plans, being drawn about two or three
weeks ago. The man in charge of the room showed
us the most recent, which had been struck off
about an hour before. It was the future University
of Kansas City. Down at the bottom of the draw-
ing was a legend, identifying the numerous squares,
etc., among which were "Union Houses," "Profes-
sional Rowf' "Business Circle," and "Forestry
Village." The man pointed to the map at a place
which at the present time is the Plaza District.
"That will go," the man said. "The Forty-eighth
and Troost community will also go," the man said.
"VVhere the Sixty-third and Brookside district is
now located will be Professional Row," the man
said. There was a very small dot that interested
us. "That,', said the man. "is the storage houses for
grounds equipment." At the present time it consti-
tutes the university buildings. just then, a man
rushed in with new plans. The Thirty-ninth and
Main district had gone.
A Didactic Essay
By the time this is published, the election will be
over. That is deplorable, since the subject is im-
portant to the point of crucial. Under ordinary
conditions, we should have remained silent, but
the recent student assembly opening the election
campaign clarified a matter which, we, in true
K. C. U. spirit, had not thought about. The point
is, that the student council is too powerful a body
on the campus. It was evident that Glenn Wfhitaker
and his henchmen could have passed a motion to
shoot Dr. Decker, and when any student body gets
that powerful, it just isn't right. No sir. VVho wants
to see Dr. Decker shot, just because Glenn VVhit-
aker asks people to signify their approval by say-
ing "Aye"? In view of the apparent danger, it
would seem the election would be more spirited.
At the present writing the only sign of life is an
effigy of Vllhitaker hanging from the flagpole. Very
effete. Now we would propose a few fist fights,
setting fire to the gymnasium and a few virile tricks
of that order. You see, with the university ex-
panding to a point where it threatens to wipe out
the whole south-side business district, the student
council wields an alarming influence. And the best
you can do is to pull that old effigy gag. Absolutely
no interest in the election. The only explanation
. . .BETWEEN
we can reach is that the students want to be domin-
ated. You enjoy a dictatorship. Now, if the Fascist
boys heard of this, where would we be? You would
just think it lovely if we had another Hitler in
this country, wouldn't you? That's the trouble with
this whole country. Can't see the danger until it's
already here, and then itis too late. Then you
couldn't step out on the street without having a
storm trooper watching you. That would be nice,
wouldn't it? The founding fathers of this country
weren't like that. I'll say they weren't. VVhy, at a
time like this, they would be right in there fight-
ing every minute of the day. It just goes to show
you what this country is coming to. Democracy
A Peculiar State of Affairs
Dr. Decker the other night commented in a
speech that he had never known a school in which
the students took such a lively interest. There is
a vein of hidden irony here. On several occasions,
Dr. Decker, after hoarding an administration secret
with great assiduity, has revealed it with evident
expectation of seeing the news fall like a bombshell
among the unsuspecting students. At first, he con-
tributed their lack of emotion to a high degree of
urbanity. By now, however, he has learned that
students are already aware of all secrets. In fact,
they know all the details. "Deck,', with typical
good-naturedness, laughs it off and converts it
into a compliment for his lively-minded student
body. Secretly, he is quite discouraged.
The Tragedy of Growing Up
It is with a great deal of sorrow that we see the
university growing into the respectable age. Col-
leges, in their evolutionary processes, go through
three stages: First, radicalism, second, conserva-
tism, and third, assurednessism. Obviously, we are
passing into the second stage. In the first years
of this university, there was never a week went,
by without the birth of some controversial subject,-
to which our young satirists gave their best efforts.
It was a golden age. Today, the student body views
such movements with a fine in-
difference, engendered, they belive,
'U by the increased sophistication of
N a more mature institution. This, of
f course, is a form of decadence, re-
sulting in insipid student elections,
"X half-hearted support of Student
the BEERS . . .
activities. It will be some time be-
fore we go into the final stage in
which there will be a renaissance
of the original enthusiasm, based
on the conviction that whatever
.I our school does is right. Then will
come an end to those enervating comparisons with
"larger and older schools."
It is an interesting peculiarity of human nature
that it is impossible to know what it will take up
next. In 1933, it was minature golf, in 1934, yo-yo
tops, 1935, tree-sitting contests, 1936, bucket beer,
1937, frozen suckers, and today Q193SD candid
cameras. Candid cameraing, as the name implies,
is the art of getting candid shots of people. Favorite
candid camera shots are, people bending over,
people eating, people making love, people with their
mouths open, people with their dresses up, in gen-
eral, people who don't know their pictures are be-
ing taken. The successful candid cameraman is
a combination of the Deerslayer and Robinson
Crusoe. He stalks his quarry with consummate skill,
taking advantage of all available coverage, some-
times creeping under an old armadillo shell and
sometimes rolling about like a tumbleweed-finally
bursting forth clicking his camera. Itis something
like playing Indian, except more fun. And no one
gets hurt. As Plato said:
Ec forsec tu scabsecet rox matec forsud,
C"The candid camerman has more fun than any
The Middle-Western Culinary Art
The word "salad,', we have learned, is about as
all-inclusive as "romantic" That was borne out
when we purchased a sandwich at our local cafe-
teria labeled 'Kham salad," which contained, as far
as we could ascertain, the following: marshmallows,
a variety of deep-sea fish, mayonaise. ground
pickle and a strong odor. We young middle-west-
ferners, as our mothers have long since learned,
thrive on very simple fare. The fundamental foods
such as meat and potatoes, done up in no disguised
forms, are what we call good eating.
How To Be Popular
XfVe would like to think that it was our influence
that de-popularized "driving like hell to the Plaza."
VVe get a lot of fun out of ruining people's good
time. But today, instead of piling the car so high
with assorted students and off to the Plaza. we
find there is another criterion of social popularity.
XWe will call it "fooling around in the browsing
roomf' The technique follows: gather up several
boon companions. Enter browsing room and select
a few likely-looking girls therein. It is much better
if girls are young. Approach girls and begin to
tease them. Pull their chairs about the room, pull
them down on the floor. Laugh loudly and talk
fast. VVatch Marshall Lovett and do what he does.
Shove girls around and laugh. After you get tired
of shoving them around and talking loud, chatter
loudly and push them around. Also watch Marshall
Lovett and do what he does.
By adopting the above technique you will gain
a two-fold reward. You will be popular and in
addition will attain that Valhalla of college men-
among the girls you be known as a "case"
Now That Spring Is Here
In a very few weeks the summer season will be
with us and everyone will become hysterical about
going to Colorado or spending a couple of weeks
in the Gzarks. Now the subject of resort vacations
is too extensive to be covered in a paragraph or
two. As a matter of fact, a complete dissertation
on the great American vacation should include
anticipation, preparation, departure, the vacation
proper, sunburn, homecoming and collapse. We
want to reflect on a minor point, the names of
Now we are the last people in the world to cry
out against suspected foreign propaganda. We have
had very little to say concerning "Moscow gold,"
"the Yellow Peril," "the Rome-Berlin-jersey City
Axis," or the "Nazi-American Build," but let's use
some common sense. If a certain foreign govern-
ment Cwhich we would rather not mention herej
doesn't name these cabins, then who does? It is our
opinion that this is subversive propaganda through
which this certain government wants to tear down
our self respect, and then when we get so we just
don't give a hoot, send in a million robots to kill our
men and carry our women and children off to a
fate worse than death itself.
For example let me call your horrified gaze to
Kamp Kill Kare, Kumfy Kozy Kabin Kamp, or
Lake Hopanchugarsquameag Qin Mainej. At these
hot beds of radicalism and espionage one may find
such appellations as "All Inn,"
f'Cfeorge's Roost," and the in-
evitable "Dew Drop Inn."
If we ever build a cabin, we
are going to call it "Dew Drop

The new Liberal Arts building, constructed dur-
ing the summer and opened to classes this fall,
completes the first quadrangle of the University
of Kansas City. This latest addition to the campus-
three stories of native stone, red tile and copper
drain pipes-is the gift of an anonymous donor. An
impressive structure of Hcollegiate gothic" style,
the new building dominates the southeast corner of
University facilities are greatly enlarged by the
Liberal Arts buildingys twenty recitation and con-
ference rooms, numerous faculty offices, large,
sound-proofed lecture hall, little theater and cafe-
teria. The building at present houses the depart-
ments of psychology, mathematics, social sciences,
modern languages, economics and art.
The new building is as attractive inside as out.
Its well-polished composition floors, recessed door-
ways set in pointed arches, walnut woodwork and
many windows make a pleasant environment in
which neither beauty nor utility has been sacrificed.
The "pink and blue" ceiling of Spanish inspira-
tion in the entrance hall was at first viewed with
a degree of suspicion by the students taking posses-
sion of the building. But todav our colorful ceiling
has been accepted by even the most critical.
An important addition to campus history and our
meager fund of tradition is the bell hanging in the
Liberal Arts tower. The big, sweet-toned bell,
which rings the hours, is a relic from an old Miss-
ouri River tug. Classes were considerably discom-
posed by the old bell's erratic habits during its first
weeks with us, but it now seems to be well under
the control of an automatic system, and has been
sounding out with admirable accuracy.
The large and modernly equipped cafeteria on the
first floor. west wing, was enthusiastically wel-
comed by the student body. Filling a long descried
need for a campus jelly joint, the cafeteria is never
empty of students lingering over the eternal "cig-
arette and coke." Venetian blinds and well-placed
tables help to make loafing agreeable, and there
is still hope that more ashtrays and a nickelodeon
will find a home there soon.
Next year the Liberal Arts building will no long-
er be "the new buildingf' Already it is so much a
part of the campus that it is hard to recall the
time when the ground it occupies was tall grass
and quail nests. Landscaping and connecting walks
integrate it with the older buildingsg well-planned
architecture make harmonious relationships.
The Liberal Arts building completes the first
quadrangle of the campus. But in rounding out the
educational facilities of the University and giving
new opportunities for recreational companionship,
it has completed even more importantly, we feel,
a quadrangle of student life.

Each sorority and fraternity soon assumes a
definite personality. From the day of its founding,
it takes on certain traits just as an individual
expresses his own innate characteristics. The so-
cial groups at K. C. U. have had only five years
to develop-in fact most of them are considerably
younger than that-yet they have already achieved
vastly different personalities.
Do A Good Deed Daily
Alpha Phi Omega is the Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde of the campus. It may be for a time at group
of serious-minded boy scouts, while several days
later it suddenly becomes the 'fglad-to-see-you-outu
frat which demonstrates its evil powers by nabbing
up a loin's share of the prize rushees. Never try
to forecast the actions of A. P. O.

extra chapter at Junior College.
The Case of the Missing Co-eds
This is the sorority of mystery. It is somewhat
secretive, giving many private affairs. Rather large,
its girls always go around together. Beta Zeta is
the name-the Madame X of K. C. U. This
sorority is the youngest on the campus, having
been here for only two years.
Hide-Here Comes a Bentonian
Bentonian-it makes you think of dancing. This
club dances constantly. It is the jig-a-boo of the
campus. It's Friday night at the Pla-Mor, Satur-
day at the script dance, and Sunday afternoon at
the nickleodeon dance. Every member is loaded
down with tickets which he thrusts on the unwary.
They are the flashy boys of the school.

Tliiii There Were Ten Pretty Girls-
If any sorority could be called
the "vamp" of K. C. U. it is Cho-Chin. This club
bears heavily of physical pulchritude and swing
dancing. Its only reason for existance seems to be
to give its members a chance to pay back some boy
friends by treating them to an occasional dance.

Under the Table
Although this frat is sometimes called Kegon,
it is known to many as the "Thank God it's Fri-
day" club. They groan through the week to come
unexpectedly to life on Friday about 2.00 P. M.
From then until Monday they go around with
"some of the boys" really enjoying life. But then
comes Monday and again rthey hibernate.
The Most-Members Sorority
May we now present the sophisticates of K. C. U.
The little girls who think they know their way
around. The Sigma Betas. However, this sorority
is slipping, for every now and then one of its
members can be seen actually acting natural. VVhen
not occupied with dazzling the males, the Sigma
Betas spend their time joining and dropping out
of Girl's Pan-Hell.
Get In There and Pitch
The Sigma Chi Psi's are really nice guys when
you get beneath that "what's it to you" shell. These
are the boys who can take it, for no pledge is admit-
ted who cannot stay out every night for a week
without weakening. Their girls are select and few.
Having A Wonderful Time
One club at K. C. U. has definitely reformed. Last
year 90 per cent of the members of U and I Sorority
went steady. This year, according to the president,
none go steady. However. it does happen that 90
per cent of the members accept dates with only one
boy. They are the clinging vine type and lucky
is the one to whom they cling.

Analysis - - -
The Inter-Fraternity Council and the VVomen,s
Pan-Hellenic Council are the two groups consisting
of the two best arguers from each sorority and
fraternity. Their excuse for holding meetings is
to solve their problems and promote general good
feeling among the various groups. In reality they
hand out tickets, pay dues, and argue for positions
on the political tickets.
A New Order
Have you heard of the Bounders' Club? just
organized this year, it claims the distinction of be-
ing the first social group to be officially recognized
by the school and chartered by the Student Council.
There is much secrecy and mystery in its origin.
First Sorority and Fraternity Awards
The Student Council was generous this year
and gave awards not only to sixteen outstanding
people, but to the two social organizations that
had the highest percentage of extra-curricular
Alpha Phi Omega received the highest ranking
percental with an average of 14.5 per member.
U and I sorrority received the highest of the
feminine organizations with an average of 7.6 per
member. The awards take the form of a black and
gold plaque on which is engraved the A. S. A.
Sorority and Fraternity award, with the name of
the organization winning and the year in which
The organizations must have the highest per-
centage the next year also or the plaques will be
taken away and given to the organizations which
do have the highest ranking.
The A. P. O.'s and the U and Ils are already
visualizing how nice the plaque will look hanging
on the wall of their clubroom in the building to
be started in the near future. But looking at the
treasurys of all the clubs it seems as though they
will have nothing to put in the clubrooms, that is,
excepting the two -winners of the awards., and they
will have only the plaques. Anyhow, it was a good
idea and the organizations like it.

As each sorority and fraternity has its own char-
acteristics, so does it have its outstanding members
and leaders, There are those individuals that help
their organization along by their very activities
and connections around the campus. As the old
saying goes "there must be all kinds of people to
make up the worldf' so it goes for the sororities
and fraternities, "there must be all kinds of people
to make up these groups."

It is only necessary to talk with Frank Collins,
a familiar figure about the campus during the past
year. to convince one that he is a man extraordinary.
I"rank prefers to make his bid for fame as a con-
noisseur of tobacco and horseflesh, but these abili-
ties are only two of many.
Frank seems to have worked miracles in the way
he has triumphed over his blindness. He has been
blind since he was thirteen.
He is an expert automobile mechanic, a radio
technician, an Eagle Scout, and operator of a first-
class broadcasting station.
Since finishing high school, Frank has steadily
continued his education. He attended Idaho's Lewis-
ton State Normal for four semesters, then en-
rolled in the University of Idaho for one and a
He became deeply interested in radio while still
in high school, and he received a station license
from the Federal Radio Commission
after undergoing a stiff examina-
To prove his ability, Frank be-
came an Eagle Scout in the mini-
mum time of a year and three
Frank is continuing his technical
training at First National Televi-
sion. His station is now VYQQBT.
He also conducts an International
Code Class at First National.
Frank's pet invention is a gadget
used to tune a transmitter to a de-
sired wavelength without the use
of cumbersome, and hitherto neces-
sary, equipment. He says it works,
so the name "Collins" may some-
day be listed among the immortals
of the broadcasting fraternity.

Versatile is the word for tow-
headed Arthur England of the Ala-
bama Englands. He is only a freshman at the U. yet
he is also pastor of the Tower Grove Methodist
Church in Gverland Park.
Any Saturday afternoon, Art might be found
on the football field, nailing opposing football lug-
gers with precision, and Sunday morning, he will
be in the pulpit of his church, delivering the sermon
with the same skill and energy. A

"I have always preferred the major sports, Sufih
as basketball, football and baseball," Art declares.
In the Alabama high schools, where he played, Art
won numerous letters for his athletic ability.
Contrary to the usual athlete, Art kept a high
average in schoolastic work. He was offered a foot-
ball scholarship by Birmingham Southern College.
He almost accepted, but was offered the pastorate
at the Tower Grove Church, and he immediately
accepted this post instead.
His work keeps him busy, for he delivers a
sermon twice on Sunday, conducts Sunday School
class in the morning, and conducts an Epworth
League meeting during the week.
Enthusiastic about his profession, Art aspires to
a diploma from the theological seminary at Emery
University at Georgia, or from Central College,

WHAT MAKES OUTSTANDING PEOPLE?
It is not always great popularity that makes out-
standing people. Individuals who hold many offices
or attain high popularity honors are not always
the real outstanding personalities of the campus.
The editors of this yearbook are endeavoring to
bring you those individuals who we feel are deserv-
ing of appreciation and honor for their ambition.
Dr. Clarence R. Decker, as a hun-
dred-minute biographies have told us, A -
is thirty-three years of age, was the
youngest man ever to receive a Ph. D.
at the University of Chicago, was form-
erly head of the English department of
the University, is at least a genius,
has done wonders in making the school
something to be proud of, never uses
an ash tray, spent a night in a Cana-
dian jail standing on a stool Qbecause
of the rats and other wild-life on the
floorj, is perhaps the youngest uni-
versity president in the country, went
to Europe on a cattle boat, was known
as "Clawncy" while in college, has a
charming wife with whom he once
collaborated on a novel. All of this
information is frightfully irrelevant
but has a very definite effect on the
community, which is beginning to re-
gard Dr. Decker as a combination child
prodigy, sleight-of-hand artist an d
prophet, none of which he will deny.
Admired by the student body, re-
spected by his associates, and beloved
of the womenls clubs, Dr. Decker's
background and great personal charm
have aided him in his meteoric rise.
He has been compared to President
Hutchins of the University of Chicago,
who at the age of thirty became head of that in-
stitution. Dr. Decker, we feel, more generally
resembles in qualities and ambition, the great build-
er of the University of Chicago, Dr. Harper. In
his short term as head of the University, he has
accomplished more in a concrete and satisfactory
way than had been accomplished since the school
opened its doors five and one-half years ago.
As examples of the advances that the University
of Kansas City has made under Dr. Decker's ad-
ministration, we could cite recognition by the North
Central Association of Colleges and Universities,
ranking of the faculty, establishment of a substan-
tial and far-reaching program for expansion, and
the many other positive moves that augur so well
DR. CLARENCE R. DECKER
for our future, However, the greatest single triumph
of the new era is the changed attitude that is so
evidently pervading the campus. The University
has become to the student body not a makeshift
secondary choice as it was to so many of us, but
actually a school that it prefers to attend. This
feeling of pride has been engendered largely in the
last few months.
Dr. Deckerls popularity was at such a high point
when he became executive of the University in
january, that continuation of it seemed rather in-
conceivable. However, this popularity seems to
have been enchanced rather than diminished in the

We lust Gotta Dance
The last few months have seen "swing', rise to
what many observers believe to be its apex. The
University has seen an unprecedented crop of
"jam sessionsf, fraternity and sorority dances and
impromptu affairs. The jam sessions were thrown
by the Tophatters' club previous to their show,
"Fee Fie Faux Pas,', with Countess Johnson and
her group doing the honors. One of these gather-
ings is shown on the opposite page.
There were the customary number of subscription
dances with nearly, but not quite, the number of
bazooned stags. The most popular ones seem to
be those given by the Bentonians, the Cho-Chins
and the Sigma Betas. Possibly this is because they
usually hold more of these affairs than do the
other social groups.
One of the obvious differences in the clambakes
of this year as compared with those of the past
was the prevalence of more wierd and distorted
steps than one usually has the misfortune of watch-
ing. Prominent among the offenders were the
Bentonian Club, Roger Atzenweiler and Will Mans-
The "Nickleodian,,' or record machine, marked
the most prominent trend in music for the year.
The second semester saw the advent of prodigious
numbers of 'fdog trots" or "rat races" at which
the Nickleodian provided the music of nationally-
known bands at a price many times smaller than
the price for which one could hire a local band.
The local band leaders, namely Royce Stoenner,
jack Thompson, Les Copely and I. L. Russell to
name a few, of course, complain that the machines
hurt their business, however, the harm is not as
great as one would imagine, since a good many
more dances are given because of the difference
in cost between the nickleodian and the real thing.
On duty, as in past years, to see that no sordid
note crept into our little soirees, was Mrs. Clancy,
Dean of VVomen of the University. Occasionally,
though, Mr. Richardson or Mr. Hilken of the
business department, appropriately escorted by
their respective wives, took over the arduous
duties of the chaperone, which consist chiefly of
trying not to appear bored stiff, and smiling pleas-
antly at the boys and girls as they lurch past.
At one or two of the dances there was a bouncer
on duty. So far as is known, no one was actually
thrown out of a dance, especially if he had paid to
get in, but it made a very nice gesture and suggest-
ed opulence, which was also very nice.

Student Government . . .
At the All Student Association meeting on April
22, the student body passed an amendment to the
constitution to the effect that only a second semes-
ter junior could be elected to the office of Student
Council President. The student auditor was also
made a member of the Council by the vote of the
After all the amendments were passed and the
meeting was closed, Mr. Allan Paris eloquently re-
marked that the student council could have passed

Few students outside the f
actual council really know
the amount and importance
of the council work. Each

The most outstanding
work of the Council for
this year is the chartering

The Student Council had the difficult job of see-
ing that the student elections were conducted fairly
-without stuffing the ballot box. They had to keep

level best to graduate and fulfill all his duties that
pile up day by day, the rest of the Council endeav-
ors to help by doing all they can to wind up the

THIS YEARS CROP
As the school year opened, back in September,
upperclassmen were both amazed and pleased with
the incoming crop of freshmen, nineteen of whom
were scholarship winners. QThat,s one way of get-
ting them to come U
The sophomores, traditional caretakers for the
frosh, immediately assumed command, and by the
first of October most of their charges were stuinb-
ling along under the weight of hair bows and caps.
To make the freshmen feel really welcome, Octo-
ber 29 was set aside for them. Their election of offi-
cers was first on the list of events, then they en-
gaged the sophs in a touch football game fthe
latter winningj, and last came the dance in the
U hall, with the announcement of the class officers.
The victorious candidates included Dick Brown
president, Marjory Heimbrook, vice-president, Jean
Dunham, secretary, Roger Atzenweiler, treasurer,
and Ted VVeiss and Shirley Johnson, student coun-
This list of executives later was enlarged at
one of those exclusive class meetings, when Dick
announced to the five people present that Dorothy
Carter and Robert VVright, aided by Mr. Staebler,
would comprise the board of control.
Athletically speaking, the freshman dominated
the year. Ray Loman enjoyed the distinction' of
winning the golf and horseshoe tournaments, jim
Gant tied for first place in tennis with Bob Ander-
son, a sophomore, while freshmen Newbury and
Sackin took third and fourth place honors in table
Continuing to win points for his class, Sackin
was high point bowler. Charles Young, who bowls
with various city leagues, initiated an idea for run-
ning off 'bowling tournaments which has proved
very satisfactory. Young and Thomas each set
records in weight lifting.
Not to be outdone -by the boys, the freshmen
girls. paced by Berniece Ross and Fay Saunders,
went through their basketball schedule without
losing a game, to occupy first place.
Proving themselves brainy as well as brawny,
most of the U-News cubs turned out to be fresh-
men. The paper would have been much deader
if f'Bonuie Bettv' Boutell's billious bantering had
been omitted: and lwe hate to admitj it would
have been much, much more decent if "Dashing
Donn Kreuger hadn't dished quite so much dirt.
On Kangaroo and Crataegus staffs, the fresh-
men names also appear. Much of the success of the
former was due to Betty Macoubriels artistic en-
deavors, Dorthy Carter as literary editor, Lorraine
Stith, art staff, and Jean Dunham as freshman class
editor, are struggling to help with the latter.
The male population of the university received
a shock at the reception for Dr. Decker, when
Eileen Kowalsky so ably gave a reading concerned
with what a girl thinks about while dancing with
a boy. Continuing along dramatic lines, Eileen and
"Bonny Bettyu had parts in "C-ammer Gurton's
As their most recent activity, the freshmen and
sophomores held a script dance late in February,
with Stoenner's orchestra swinging it. The 32.40
profit was split between the two classes.
Thus, with their first year at the University
almost ended, the freshmen, by their achievements,
have proved their worth.
The class of '41 is worthy of more fame than
it realizes. It will probably go down on record as
the last freshman class that was regarded with
deference. Because of the very nature of things
at the University of Kansas City in the last few
years, any newcomer was regarded as worthy
of attention. The sorority and fraternity groups
attempted to curry his favor, and the school was
largely his oyster.
But all that is changed now. The sophomore
classes are coming into their own, or at least try-
ing to do so. The sororities and fraternities are
beginning to get the idea that the freshmen are not
to be rushed pell-mell into pledging and member-
ship. One fraternity already has rules that there
will be no pledging until second semester. Before
next year all other fraternities and sororities will
have the same rules, and the freshmen will find that
they are not the proverbial pearl in the oyster.
Formerly, the freshmen had formed a majority or
a very strong minority, without which the upper
classes could not very well get along. VVe now have
a fairly permanent population in all the classes.
so that the freshman class is not much larger than
any other class. So with all these factors influenc-
ing the case, the freshmen will come into his right-
ful place as lowliest of low.
THE SCDPHCDMQRE SET UP
Finding themselves with several vacancies among
the class officers. one of the first acts of the sopho-
more class was to elect Ace johnson as presi-
dent and "Beef" Satterlee as vice-president. Secre-
tary Georgia Lee Hupp and Treasurer Mary Lou
Stocks were elected last spring, as were Ann Corbin
and Thelma Monsees, student council represnta-
G11 the classls board of control are Jim Consi-
dine, lim Rawlings, and Mr. Hilken. The same two
boys were on quite a different "board of control"
as they and Brothers Keller, Stoenner and Satter-
lee formed the sophomore enforcement committee,
which tried to keep ribbons and caps on the fresh-
men. Betty Muehlschuster, Marty Randall and
the two student council representatives helped by
disciplining unruly freshmen.
VVhen Freshmen Day rolled around, the sophs
trounced the frosh in touch football, thus winning
the right to attend the latter's dance.
For some reason, the youngsters wouldn't admit
the mastery of the sophs, so a bag race between the
two classes was held toward the last of November.
As might be expected, both sides claimed the
If the freshmen dominated the field of athletics,
then certainly the same can be said for the sopho-
mores along dramatic lines. In "The Pot Boilers,"
presented before an enthusiastic audience in the
U-hall, three of the actors in particular gave ex-
cellent performances. Helen Kaminsky as the lisp-
ing ingenue, Lucille Southard as the woman of
mystery, and Bob Keller as the distraught play-
right-producer were well liked.
Included in the sophomore's were Doris Jean
Bramley, beauty queen candidate of this year. Last
year's first place, Southard, and second place,
Although peas were hung in the halls to adver-
tise "The Late Christopher Bean," there was noth-
ing phoney about the characterizations given by
Lil Burch, Morley johnson, and Jim Rawlings. For
two nights, November 22 and 23, the show was pre-
sented at the Center to large audiences.
Included in the "Gammer Gurton's Needlel' cast
were still more sophomores: Getty Laridon, Aim
Corbin. Helen Kaminsky and Bob Keller.
Cn the publications the sophs were prominent
throughout the year. Armand Glenn- and Hleepl'
Jedlicka held down the news and society editor-
ships for the first semester, with Armand becoming
editor-in-chief and Considine editorial editor for
the second term. This, of course, was before the
staff shake-up, when the shake-up settled down
the same two emerged in the same positions. Ann
Coen. Seymore Globus lonly one in captivityj, and
Bob Stauffer remain star reporters.
XN'ith Sophomore Paris editing it, the Kangaroo
has become an outstanding college magazine.
After all, the class didn't exactly disgrace itself
in sports, for versatile Bob Anderson was co-champ
in tennis, and Marvin Anderson and Bob came in
first and second respectively in table tennis.
Two of the five scholarships given to university
students were won by members of this class. Eldon
Newcomb and Edwin Robbins, with straight A
grades last year, were the honor winners. '
On February 25, after heroic work on the part
of Dick Brown and Ace Johnson, the Freshman-
Sophomore script dance was held, with the sopho-
mores reaping exactly Sl.2O. They shouldn't be
censured though, for they may actually be without
funds. Several were caught contributing mills in
the charity drive.
But as a whole, this year has been highly success-
ful for the sophomores, who are already beginning
to assume that junior swagger.
The sophomore class is finding itself in a predica-
ment not unlike many other sophomores have found
themselves. Like other classes they were called up-
on this year to prove their ability to dominate the
freshmen and enforce the freshmen rules. They
succeeded in influencing the election of the fresh-
men officers. They were aided, too, by older, more
experienced upperclassmen political leaders, who
once dominated the sophomores.
The sophomores of this year wavered, however,
when it came to the real test of enforcing the wear-
ing of freshmen caps and ribbons. They even de-
scended to actual primative actions, such as fist-
cuffs in the front lobby of the Ad Building. The
dispute was supposedly settled by the Student
Council decree of the bag race. lt really did noth-
ing more than slightly appease the sophomores, who
claimed they won. They were merely rationalizing
their failure to subdue the freshmen by means other
than physical force.
Until the sophomore classes discover the secret
of how to reduce the freshmen to their place, they
will never gain the supremacy that they think they
deserve. And yet to maintain their intellectual
standing, they must discover the way to do it by
force of will.

THIS AND THAT ABCDUT TUNTQRS .
NYhen a little boy is called "junior" it means
simply that he is named after his father. But when
a college student is called a junior, it means that
the fortunate individual has managed to reach his
third year of college. It is the turning point-the
place where the general field of knowledge has
been narrowed to a specialized course. It is the
stage at which the formerly flippant freshman and
sarcastic sophomore has become a jaunty junior.
The Class of '39 started a program of activities
early in the school year with a script dance, held
in the U-Hall. All but one of the class officers had
been at K. C. U. for three years, so they were able
to help make this first event quite a success. The
officers are as follows:
Student Council-jeanette Spears
However, in back of the officers was a well-
balanced class. First of all, there was a good
measure of brains. Laurabel Ashley and Mary Har-
bord received scholarships for their past work at
the University, while Lloyd Harris was given the
K. C., Kansas junior College award, and Alice
Violet earned the K. C., Missouri, junior College
In the field of athletics the juniors were un-
usually strong. Despite the small size of the class,
they finished the football season in second place,
thanks primarily to the work of Harold Myers,
Ross Vl'ilhite, james Gatchell and Art Charvat.
Then Bob Noll placed third in the golf tournament.
But the great suprise came when the junior basket-
ball team, captained by Harold Myers, captured
the coveted championship after winning the play-
off from the favored Freshman team. Bill Berner,
Bill.Harder, Russell Hall, XYill Mansfield, Lloyd
Harris. and Ross VYilhite made up the squad.
Ted Goodale, the strong man of the campus, in-
structed classes in weight lifting and during the
year Leonard Roland, a former Golden Gloves
champ. played the part of a meek little pledge of
A. P. O.
But the juniors' have achieved their greatest
prominence in extra-curricular activities. The edi-
tor of the annual, jeanctte Spears, the business
manager of the L'-News. Rex Morgan, and the busi-
ness manager of the C-Players, john Hughes, have
proved this point.
There are many interesting personalities in the
class, impassive Bob Grafrath, president of A. P.
O.: sweet little jane Martin, president of U and Ig
Charles Povlovich, the Einstein of K. C. U., saucy
little Mary Frances Scott, Glen Stebbins, the
"jig-a-boo" of the campus: sedate Margaret Mon-
etteg good-looking Terry Statham, vivacious Betty
Crain, Nina Gene W'ilkins, an artist to be, and
Edith Ann Pierce, the lone girl of the geology
The Tophatters placed Ernie Berlin and Bill
Buffe in leading roles in their production of "Fee,
Fie, Faux Pas," while Margaret Cochran was one
of the dancers. jane Baldwin aided Producer Will-
son in writing a song. As a happy ending to the
year, on Sunday, May 22, the class will have a picnic.
The typical junior is a quiet person of many
moods. He has had enough experience to sober
him and yet he is a leader in activities because of
past training. He is not as busy as the poor Senior,
struggling to graduate, and yet takes work more
seriously than the underclassman. He is in the
favored spot of college life.
For some reason the junior class is always the
smallest, the most sluggish, the hardest working,
the least responsive, and the generally dull section
of students of the college group. They rebel at
all of this, of course, but can never offer any ex-
cuse for these actual facts. Soon the juniors will
have to wake up to the fact that the seniors are
resenting this and that they are gradually and
slyly shoving their heretofore heavy burdens in
the direction of the junior class.
The greatest out-and-open step that has been
made so far was the All-Student Association amend-
ment to the constitution that the president of the
Student Council must be a second semester junior.
juniors, beware! If the students are pushing the
major work of the campus toward you, you canlt
tell what they might do next.
Someday, it may be the great juniors of the
campus who have replaced Forrest, Emmett, jesse
and Bones. Even Kurtz might go.
juniors, rebel! Shall you quietly accept all this
work that is being piled on you? Are you going
to defend your favored spot in the loafing life of the
campus? All this work will necessitate having more
junior meetings and conferences. No junior likes
to go to class meetings, so do you realize that this
will mean that you wil lhave to attend? Shall you
come down to that? Never!

Kangaroo Quad Queen . . .
The students' choice of the twelve prettiest girls at the
University of Kansas City give the favor to freshmen. There
are seven freshmen girls, tour sophomores and one special
student, leaving the upperclass girls out altogether.
Each sorority was well represented with at least one mein-
her. Sigma Beta totaled most with four.
Seven of these twelve will he eliminated to leave the Quad
Queen and her four attendants.
The contest was conducted through the Kangaroo maga-
zine and each person with a ballot was able to vote for the
twelve girls he thought the prettiest.

Perhaps the best known car at the campus is the
Blue Packard sedan belonging to Alma Jane VVirth-
man. It is the most evident, being often parked in
the driveway beside the no-parking signs. Very
blond Alma jane and very blue Packard make a nice
Bud Hites with the dark green convertible Ford
is another well known combination. Patsy Tilford
used to complete this group . . . but no longer. The
tall aerial and the little flag atop it was a sign of
Hites plus Ford.
Betty "Glamour" Tharpe and her blue Plymouth
coupe are getting to be well known. For awhile
we thought something would happen. Wasn't there
a small matter of a thirty eight dollar gas bill?
Bill Buffe and his tan convertible Ford roadster
specialized in a varied assortment all year. It may
be seen at any place on the campus at any time.
Sara Newby, driving the black Studebaker sedan,
parks on Charlotte and fifty second street. And
how familiar the sight of Russell Slocum and his
blue Ford sedan has become. Fords seem to have it
for have you noticed the neat job that Alma .lane
Evans herds. It is a creamy gray Ford sedan
trimmed in red, and with white sidewall tires. Then
there is Margaret Smith and her black Ford that
always looks as though it had just received a wash
and polish job.
Lou Southard and her gray and red trimmed
Chevrolet sedan can be found in the parking station
with Bill Berner.
"Dapper Dann McKibbin races his Dapper Tan
Ford Coupe down Rockhill in the morning. Mary
Harmon drives her green Plymouth Sedan from
way over in Kansas each morning.
You can't miss Ernie Berlin and his very dark
blue Ford Coupe. Then there is Paul Hess in his
gorgeous blue Hudson.
,Don Armacost has a Studebaker Qnaturallyj, and
Frances Daily sports a gray Plymouth sedan which
received about four parking tickets. Patty Power
fills her car with girls and 'cdrives-like-hell-to-the

around in his gray Ford sedan.
Hal Mather's car is the tan convertible Chevrolet

very large Buick 8 sedan, while Allan Burr does

Wie had an election. And what an election! Not
very many of the students really know what goes on
at an All Student election. But the ones on the in-
side know plenty that they wouldnlt care for others
There was not very much campaigning this year.
In comparison to last year, the campaigning was
very mild. Some of us remember the good old days
when there were three parties, everything was
scrambled and we even had a car driving around the
campus, blaring music and the virtues of the Inde-
Most of us missed the riotous assembly that
should have been, and that highly competitive spirit.
The only real excitement came when illegal bal-
lots were discovered in the pile of legal ones. Roth
parties immediately accused each other.
The Student Council Election Committee, com-
..We Haol An
posed of chairman, Jeanette Spears. and Bill Mc-
Donell and Ann Corbin did their best to make the
election a straight one. Miss Spears claimed to be
neutral, Miss Corbin cheered for the Co-ops, and
Mr. McDonell was a leader of the Yo-camp party.
Political leader Roy Stout, Co-op, kept an eagle
eye and a worried face toward Harry McDonald,
Student Council representative, who watched the
ballot box. Roy Stout watched Harry McDonald,
Armand Glenn watched Roy Stout, Charles Povlo-
vich watched Armand Glenn and around and around.
Clever Vo-camps stood at the door of the voting
room and collected propaganda sheets. Only stu-
dent council members were allowed in the voting
room with the voters. There were to be no politi-
cians in the room. However, Mike DeFeo managed
to remain in the room for one hour and a half, on the
pretext of not being able to make up his mind how
Mr. Glen Wlhitaker, now president of the All Stu-
dent Association, grew gray with worry and anger
after discovering the illegal ballots. Wlhen these
ballots were checked by the Dean. there were only
five of them, and the markings were so varied that
they were not discarded. Dean Sanford and Dr.
Kenneth Mahoney, Council advisor, supervised the
In previous years there has been much ballot-box
stuffing. The greatest number of ballots folded up
and put in together as one has been thirteen. There
were no ballots folded together in the entire box in
this year's election.
Principals around the election polls all day were,
Vlfilbur Mansfield, Harry McDonald, Mike DeFeo.
Armand Glenn, Goodie Lyons, Bill McDonell, How-
ard Gossage, Calways protestingj and Rex Morgan,
-all Vo-camps. Those representing the Co-ops
were big Charles Young, Charles Povlovich, Ann
Corbin, Harold Meyers, Jack Casper and Wlillard
The poll keepers suspected everyone. even Forrest
who went in and out emptying the wastebaskets
which rapidly filled with political propaganda, dis-
carded by those who had finished voting. They even
suspected Mr. Baker, who chanced to happen in
once. They couldn't very well throw him out so
.-Xrmand Glenn watched him with a wary eye.
The browsing room proved to be excellent for
the voting room and also for students who got tired.
Election . . .
For they would bring the cushions from the easy
chairs outside the doors and sit on them, just to
make electioneering a little more comfortable.
It is a known fact that certain irregularities were
carried on in the election. A certain Co-op member
of the Student Council managed to pull ballots out
of the box while no one was looking, change them
and return. This could be done because many of
the ballots were not pushed completely down in the
box by the voters who put them in.
A certain Vo-camp candidate for a Student Coun-
cil office inserted a blank blue sheet in the box in-
stead of the regular junior ballot. He then carried
out his ballot-and thus the illegal ballots.
Another clever gentleman, Vo-camp candidate
pointed to the checking lists with his finger under
which he had wedged a piece of lead, Many names
of potential Co-op voters were checked off this way.
There were Co-ops officiating at the table where
the lists were checked, and many Vo-camp names
were checked off before they actually voted. Eddie
Schuett was one unfortunate who didn't get to vote,
because his name was checked off. jack Casper
voted early in the morning, but his name was still
unchecked in the middle of the afternoon. Three
people claimed that they saw Royce Stoenner vote,
but each at a different time.
There was to be no electioneering inside the
browsing room: however, it was not possible to keep
Seated at the table with backs turned,
are Ann Corbin, Sophomore repre-
sentative of the S'udent Councilg and
Shirley Johnson, Freshman repre-
sentative. They had chargeof check-

STUDENT COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES
BETWEEN the BEEES . . .
Post Mortem, As It Were
We had been intending to do up a parody of our
eminent contemporary, the University News, all
year long, but we just didn't get around to it until
now. VVhat makes the whole thing seem so unfor-
tunate is not that we were late, especially, but that
the News is not with us any more. VVe learn that
the News for some reason or other will not be pub-
lishing anymore this year. We are sorry that they
are in no shape to retaliate with some pretty neat
comebacks, and we are fully aware that this is in a
way sort of speaking ill of the proverbial dead, but
we have four pages already set up and are in no
mood for substituting anything in its place, so there.
This Thing Called Love
A young chap of our acquaintance is in love. He
dates the young lady as often as possible, eats lunch
with her every day, calls her up a couple of times
every evening, is rather irked when she is out with
somebody else, and just worries hell out of himself
in general. No meaning to be philosophical about
the foibles of human nature or anything like that,
but is is rather peculiar to watch love in its percola-
tory stages. The aforementioned youth fancies him
self to be quite a smooth customer. the kind that
likes to tell the boys how its done. He advises the
hard-to-get routine of lovemaking as being ex-
tremely effective, and yet, there he goes shagging
after that girl, a complete contradiction of all he
advocates. I think he'd really like to try that hard-
to-get line except for the fear that maybe she doesn,t
want to try that hard and she probably doesn't.
VVatching this self-imposed torture, we wonder
if there isn't a more satisfactory way to live. Per-
haps we ought to give up this age of dates and form-
alities, and hie ourselves back to the golden age
when the entire chase was physical. You picked out
a biddy that looked good, then chased her till she
either dropped from exhaustion or a well placed
missile between the shoulder blades.
The Honor System
Not that we feel any impulse to help along the
proposed honor system by editorializing in its be-
half, but we can't help commenting that this last
session of final exams undermined what little faith
we have in our dear colleagues-the student body.
Never in our lives have we seen such a complete
lack of imagination and subtlety in the methods of
It always made a pleasant interlude in our own
exam when we could watch the complicated maneu-
verings of the fellow down the aisle trying to
maniuplate a crib scroll wound on match sticks.
The near genius of some cribbers in former years
really made us feel inferior that we had always had
to learn the stuff instead of being able to invent
some breath-taking. fool-proof system. But this
year we were disappointed to find only the old and
worn out tricks being pulled. lNe also found that
the engaging air of secretiveness of the cheater had
vanished. It always thrilled us to find ourselves
seated next to a cheater. He hadthe glamour of a
war spy about him, and we felt like regular hellers
just watching him work. Now notes are passed
around casually in classes, or the studes rush out
en masse "for a drink of waterl' and return still
talking about the answer to the fifth.
If for no other reason, we'd almost like to see the
honor system put in just to see if it would stimu-
late a little ingenuity on the campus in some new
direction. Maybe it would produce a super stream-
lined race of stool-pigeons. But even that, we feel,
would be a relief from the apathetic monotony of
the open cheating existing at present. XVe admit
that it looks as if the Golden Age of Cheating is
coming to an end simply from the lack of talent,
but we hate to think that this means we are never
again going to have the cozy feeling of watching
someone buffalo the faculty. It isn't a healthy
sign to have a faculty that isn't buffaloed once in
awhile. If the honor system will bring out some
new talent in another direction-we're all for it.

Those simple signs saying "All N. Y. A. Students
please see Mr. Baker today" mean that another part
of their tuition is checked off and that they have

The arrangement for students to work for part
of their tuition has been a boon to many aspiring
scholars. There are many, many things that the
students do to receive their scholarships.
Perhaps the first to be noticed are the girls at the
office desk. There is a different girl almost every
hour of the day. She does such things as talk to her
friends, read new copies of magazines, study, etc.
Of course, on the side, she does work for the office
which consists of answering the switchboard, giv-
ing out all sorts of information to people who call.
and doing lots of typing for the office. She is ex-
pected to know where each professor is each hour
and where he can be reached, if he is giving a quiz
that day, or almost anything she is asked.
There are a number of girls who work in' the of-
fice, especially during enrollment week when there
is a great amount of typing to do. These girls get
to talk to all the incoming students and generally
have a good time. Once in a while they type.
Then there are the girls who work in the library.
Everyone complains about these girls. The slow-
ness with which they get a book, only increases
their coinplaints. The students feel that the method
by which the books are obtained is a slow and labor-
ious one. The library is willing to change if some-

The Seniors have picked
their rings. The rings will be

of rings the Seniors should
choose lockets to wear around
their necks this year was
overruled and discarded. The

feel that these are distinc-

us stand out together."
Kangaroo Won't Give Up
Again it is our painful duty to inform you that the
extra amount of trash Forrest's crew has had to clean up
this week has consisted chiefly of gawdy, bawdy bits of
"Kangaroos" that irate students have torn up when they
read what they had paid fifteen cents for.
Personally, we of the UNEWS have never been able to
get the point of the existence
of the "Kangaroo," and if all
the students are as thick-
headed as we are, we can
cheerfully expect that this
obnoxious magazine can't last
In this month's issue, as
in others, the Kangaroo staff

don't think these two need
worry about their circulation
falling off because of the
Our campus magazine, of
which we are so proud, con-
tinues to thumb its nose at

ed by trying to avoid the un-
wholesome stink arising from
"Between the Beers" is the
usual stale stuff. The article
"How to Hold Your Man" is
excellent advice for any girl
not to follow. "Under the
Table with Herman" certain-
ly could be improved by a
little careful study of the
gossip column in the U-
NEWS. The jokes are as
funny as the cartoons-and
we sure didn't laugh at eith-
er of them. In fact, the "Kan-'
garoo" is a flop as usual.
Our slogan for this Week
is: What this school needs is
a good five-cent magazine
that sells for five cents-in-
stead of fifteen." Your witty
and appreciative reviewers
will now rush for a bottle of
Listerine to Wash the bad
taste out of their mouths,
after having done their duty
in the field of criticism.

Up Some Ethics
Things have reached a deplorable
state of affairs around here. It seems
that certain of our fine young students
around here, are somewhat misinform-
ed about tht way things are done in
the big colleges like Princeton, Harvard
and Yale. It seems that certain stu-
dents have the deplorable habit of not
exactly playing fair on tests, like they
do at the big colleges, like Princeton.
Now we have no complaint about
cheating on tests, except that we feel
sorry for those people themselves. They
can't realize, as we do, what all this
really means. You know, it doesn't
make much differenct whether you
look at what the person next has put
down so you can get perhaps a little
higher grade. It's simply the principle
of the thing. It isn't playing the game
like they do at much older and larger
Much larger and older schools, like
Princeton, Harvard, Yale and Western
Reserve, all have their honor systems.
The students simply discourage cheat-
ting by letting the cheater know that
they fthe other studentsj simply don't
approve of that sort of thing and it
isn't playing the game like we do at
these older and larger schools.
Now here at our school, we could
have some volunteers volunteer to watch
if other people are cheating. They
would simply report to teacher that a
certain person is cheating, and al-
though they do not care what grade
that person gets, they think it is un-
fair to others, especially to me, who
am sitting next to that certain person.
The student council could help out
Page .Siirly four
by also watching for cribbing Kas they
call it in the older and larger schoolsj
and report same to whoever is inter-
ested. The person or persons caught
cheating could be brought before the
student council and told if he doesn't
stop cheating, the student council will
do something about it. With all stu-
dents working together for the same
purpose, cheating could be brought to
a halt. At least it would be cut down
where we could compare favorably with
Princeton,Harvard and Ohio State,
where cheating has become a thing of
the past, due to the splendid efforts of
everyone in the school to watch and
keep certain persons from cheating.
So let's bcild some ethics around here.
I'm sure we would be a much better
school if we could do it. And we would
soon have a reputation for what we
are doing from coast to coast.-Harold

This cliche is credited to the Chinese
Emperor Foo-Foo the Foorst, who,
when strolling one day by the banks of
the yellow Yank-Poo, observed a Man-
choo maiden bathing in a secluded cove
of thestream. Struck with delight at
the lyric beauty of the scene, Foo-Foo
exclaimed: S'ai feyen thieng!" Natural-
ly, the Emperor, a pronounced stutter-
er, meant to say "S'ai theyen feeng,"
which is Manchoo for "Holy Gee!" but
he got his consonants twisted. A Coolie
swineherd who happened to be near
by was amused by the novelty of the
phrase, and he sent it in, accompanied
with a box-top from a "Koochee-Li-
chee Rice" carton, to a bright-sayings
of children contest being run in a cur-
rent weekly. Naturally, such a wittic-
ism was not ignored by the magazines,
and "Hulabaloo" and "Essquyre" ran
the gag simultaneously in the next
edition. Frequent repition of the phrase
since that time has served to fix it
firmly in our vernacular.

Ye Scribe Gets Interview With
By Robert Stuffer
The little man with the Murad mustache fnonchalantj
was lying in the grass on his back, watching the sun go
Jy in the sky. Ye scribe approached respectfully and squat-
ted beside him to wait until the future famous man wanted
to be interviewed.
The little man turned his head to look at ye scribe and
said, "What ho, my good
By this time you have prob-
ably guessed that the little
man with the Murad mus-
tache was Frank Q. McKib-
ben, leading literary light of

"Yup, that's the dope, son.

a couple buzzing around in

Ye scribe looked at the
future famous novelist's head
but could see nothing un-
"What kind of novels are
you going to write, sir?"
"Well, son, my novels are
going to be significant, they-
're going to be vital studies

eternal problems of man-

popular best-sellers to get a

that it's going to be art and

a title picked out?"
"Yes, I'm going to call my
masterpiece "Out of These
Years." But I'm not going to
write that until I've lived
and seen the world and done
years of research. Besides
I've got to get a plot for it."
The little man with the
Murad mustache turned over
on his tummy in the grass
and stared moodily at the
weary ants threading their
tedious way through the
jungle of grass blades.
"You know, Stuffer, we're
all just a bunch of ants lost
in the world. That's the mes-
sage I want to bring to the
people, and make them see
the real tragedy of life."
"Mr, McKibben, do you
think it is hard to write
"Not for me, son, not for
people like me. By the way,
who's the dame in the green
Ye scribe, perceiving that
even future novelists were
human, concluded the inter-
view abruptly and walked
away, leaving the little man
alone with his mustache, and
the ideas in his head, and the
ants in the grass.

The Humor Mag-And How lt Grew . .
It all lc about a year ago in that barren waste,
'i the Ad building. At that time it
. haste but Cafeteria No. l-and an
hist c spot, if you will believe us. For there in
the midst of the hungry, milling mob Qand they def-
initely milled in those daysj Gossage, Paris and
lVlcDc'nell had an idea.
The idea turned out to be a plan for a campus
humor magazine-to be known as the Kangaroo.
Of course, this in turn called for other ideas, but the
three and their intimates felt that by pooling their
resources they would have at least enough genius
for one issac. And so they gave it a try.
After surmounting the first difficulties of selling
advertising for a non-existant publication and get-
ting contributions for the same, the editors were
able to introduce their first off-spring from the
bridge-table in the front hall, March l937. Now,
from the long view, we can say charitably of that
first issue. "lt was an interesting experiment," but
even from the long view we would hesitate to ven-
ture much more.
lt was a pretty under-nourished little Kangaroo
that made its debut on the campus last spring.
Brought out on the proverbial shoe-string, and
rather sadly resembling it, the humor mag showed a
confusing lack of editorial purpose. Although it
declared itself a "humorous magazine", most of the
contributions were oh so very, very literary from
the English major crowd.
For the moment the newcomer made a faint stir
in the usual apathy of Qur Student Body. Most of
them read the first issue tby means of the good old
K. C. U. custom pass-it-over-to-me-nextj but they
were only mildly enthusiastic. Disappointed Eng-
lish majors who failed to find their own contribu-
tions in the pages. condemned it as "rotten writing."
The locker room gang complained "it isn't dirty
And the Unews, thinking of all the value it offered
for five cents, declared indignantly, "NVell, all we
know is that it isn't worth any fifteen cents."
However, the second issue showed that the shoe-
string had somehow grown to be a boot-lace, and it
can be recognized as the direct ancestor of the Kan-
garoo we have known this year. Slick paper re-
placed newsprint, the cover had taken on color, and
the editors had been successful in wringing a little
more humor and a little less literature out of their
contributors. Circulation doubled, on this issue,
and the Kangaroo no longer felt itself an unwel-
come step-child on the campus. It felt that it now
Had the Courage to Go On.
The original triumvirate-Allan Paris, Howard
Crossage, and Bill McDonell-has continued to car-
ry the chief burden of the Kangarods publication.
However, they have been seconded in their efforts
by Mary Harbord, Bette Macoubrie, Bob Grafrath
and Ernest Berlin. Cf course, beyond these there
have been staff members, and there have been staff
members. But staff members of any college publi-
cation are like the shifting sands of the desert-and
we won't go into all of that right now.
Allan E. Paris, known locally as Hbright-eyesn and
Hthe little mann, was the first editor of the Kanga-
roo and steered it successfully through the first
six issues. Allan gained renown as the originator
of the phrases "drive-like-hell-to-the-Plaza" and
'fpush tables together and just take the place overn.
His specialty was the column "Between the Beers"
where he commented with a sprightliness which was
neither heavy-handed sophistication nor too blase
juvenile yawning-thank heavens! But V Allan
turned professional and left the amateur ranks.
Howard Gossage, who with Bill McDonell had
been handling the business end of the magazine
with one hand tied behind his back, now untied the
other hand and took over the editorship. Howard
maintained the standard of high comedy which Al-
lan had helped the magazine achieve, and he brought
the Kangaroo to a place among other college humor
magazines. of which the University need not be
ashamed. Despite our natural bias in favor of our
own magazine, compliments from other magazine
editors and favorable comment from other sources
assure us that we have a humor magazine which
ranks extremely well with those of 'folder and larg-
er schools" lto use a phrase bitterly run into the
ground by the Kangaroo for satirical purposesj
The Kangaroo is a member of the National Asso-
ciation of College Comics, and of the Board of Edi-
tors, College Humor magazine. National adver-
tisers buy space in its pages. Excerpts from the
Kangaroo have been reprinted in the magazines of
every large university in the United States. Copies
are exchanged with numerous other schools, and the
magazine has a sizeable circulation in Kansas City
outside the campus.
While the Kangaroo would be the last to admit it
has had any function other than that of supplying
K. C. U. with a humor mag, it may well be pointed
out that the Kangaroo is doing a great deal to create
interest in the University among outsiders, and to
inform students all over the country that College
Life is also taking place in Kansas City. Published
primarily to amuse the students on the campus, in-
directly it is a record of the attitudes, personalities,
speech and school life of these same students.

Craiaequs . . .
The yearbook of the University of Kansas City
was christened Qwithout champagnej "Crataegus",
three years ago, by Dr. Kenneth L. Mahoney of the
Biology Department. Crataegus is the scientific
name for the hawthorne, flower of Missouri.
Two editions of the traditional, academic type of
yearbook have been published in the past by editors
George Attebury and Virginia Collins.
Jeanette Spears, a junior, and Roy Stout, a senior,
were selected as editor and business manager of
the yearbook for 1938. Feeling that something should
be done about the disinterested and lethargic atti-
tude of the students, they decided that some sort of
a change should be made. Also there was a small
matter of the debt of the previous year's annual,
and from all aspects, the annual of l938 was headed
in the same general direction.
After much arguing and wrangling, the Cratae-
gus-Kangaroo merger became known and estab-

The University Review
Four years ago the first issue of the University
Review appeared-a small, green-backed pamphlet
of thirty-two pages. Keeping pace with the devel-
opment of the University, the Review now appears
in quarterly editions of 152 pages, and brings to the
University community and a rapidly growing pub-
lic, articles, poetry, stories and drawings of regional
and national interest.
Dr. Clarence R. Decker founded the Review and
edited the magazine until his executive duties this
year forced him to resign as editor. He was suc-
ceeded by Dr. Alexander Cappon of the English de-
Reflecting the aims of the University itself, the
Review is helping to stimulate intellectual activity
in Kansas City and call attention to cultural oppor-
tunities near at hand. The consistently high stand-
ard of writing and ideas in the magazine has called
forth enthusiastic approval from critics and edi-
tors all over the United States. Although the Re-
view is a regional magazine, primarily concerned
with the Middle-West, its scope has not been limited
to the immediate community it serves.
Faculty members, students, local writers and
scholars contribute to the publication, and, in addi-
tion, the cover of the Review has borne the names of
many distinguished persons in the world of litera-
ture and art-Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart
Curry, John Cowper Powys, Edgar Lee Masters,
John Gould Fletcher, Diego Rivera, VVilliam Ellery
Leonard, Pearl Buck, Lord Dunsany, Donald VVith-

High-handedness, criticism and reorganization
made this year a hectic one for the University News
staff. In March, soon after Armand Glenn and Rex
Morgan took over the editorial and business reign
of the financially bankrupt paper, the administra-
tion stepped in and backed by years of vast ex-
perience gained from reading the Kansas City Star,
announced that open competition for all offices on
the staff was to be held. The paper was to become a
second A'New York Times,', a real gem among
college publications. Richard B. Fowler, editorial
writer, reporter, and minister of propaganda for
the University totalitarian state, stationed at the
"Kansas City Star" and Harry Kaufman, one-time
Star correspondent, one-time U-News editor, who
flunked out in l936 and '37, were to give profes-
sional advice and sow the seeds of their vast repor-
torial knowledge in the fertile brains of all entrants.
Students applauded and thought it was a marvel-
ous idea, each secretaly confiding in himself that
he was the undiscovered genius needed for the
About twenty-five Hslumbering genii' applied
and the contest mill ground finely. Among these
were Bill jackson, former staff member, and Jim
Considine, associate editor under the Glenn regime.
Mr. Glenn himself was conspiciously lacking from
the assembly. It was rumored that he had been
assigned to cover the chemistry classes, a beat
equivalent to the obituary department of the large
Students waited with bated breath for the first
"New York Times" edition of the new, better writ-
ten, better edited, better proofread, better head-
lined and more amazing University News.
The time approached and Harry Kaufman and
Allan Paris, were seen rushing madly about with
immensly famous personages like Messrs. Fowler
and Decker. The News office was liberally stocked
with yellow pencils labeled "The Kansas City Star"
and reams of yellow paper was used, lending a
professional atmosphere to the scene.
The first paper appeared, a fine example of repor-
torial ague. It contained every style of type from
the oldest Harper's VVeekly to the latest thing in
the Kalamazoo Gazette. The campus was amazed
at the Decker, Fowler, Kaufman representation of
the 'fNew York Timesf' Also remarkable was the
freeness from typographical errors. Only fifty-four
were counted on the front page.
A large and smiling group of staff members await-
ed in News meeting to congratulate the profession-
als on their achievement. In the resulting melee,
Mr. Fowler endeavored to the best of his ability to
prove that retrogression is essentially progress.
After four weeks of endless progress, downward,
Mr. Glenn reappeared as the 'WVhite Hopef' and
once more resumed office. After some persuasion
Mr. jackson and Mr. Considine consented to act
as assignment editor and editorial editor, respective-
Three editions were published before the adminisl
tration realized that Mr. Glenn was once more in

was suspended until the finances were straighten-

Now that the second annual Tophatters' Club
show, "Thing and Stuffl' is history, now that we
have seen a really fine musical comedy, presented
on a big-time scale by our own confreres of the
University, now that we have put on a much better
show than many another "older and larger" school
flike Princeton for instance, Messrs. Hilken, Pindar
and Staeblerj, our lethargic student body is a bit
prone to nod in its customary indifferent approval,
and then sink back into its primeval ooze. All of
which is just a verbose way of saying that their is
a Cquoting Paul Willsoiij "whole helluva lot more
to putting on a show than going through your
paces on the opening night."
Before quoting Mr. Wfillson further, let me tell
you something of the history of the Tophatters'
club of the University of Kansas City. To begin
with, last year someone or ones thought it would
be a good idea to put on a show, so they did. This
initial attempt was called "Things ,N Stuff," and
was so amazingly good that it was decided to start
early in the year 1937-38 to put on something of a
gigantic nature. The first meeting of the new year
was attended by more than a hundred people, all
of whom seemed to be genuinely interested. Plans
were discussed for the coming year, and the rhythm
choir was organized. Mr. Nyquist and Mr. Mc-
Dermott of the Art department spoke briefly, and
help of all types was enlisted in the cause. Shortly
after Christmas the book was completed and cast-
ing had begun. The Christmas dance of the club
saw the first public presentation of the songs from
the show and several of the cast.
Along about this time the now historic jam ses-
sions began in the Tophatters' office, on the fourth
floor of the Administration building, which had
formerly accommodated the cafeteria. The sessions
were held to the music of Countess Johnson and her
VVith the approach of "Fee Fie Faux Pasf, re-
hearsals moved from the University to the Music
Hall of the Municipal Auditorium, which was
furnished through the kindness of Mr. George
Goldman, without whose help the show would have
never been produced. Day and night rehearsals

Qur Students Have
It is sad but true. Our valiant male students
have degenerated into cream-puffs. The proof? It
is simple-just glance at the present male wearing
Among the various garments today worn by the
college student, there is one prize offender. It is
that sissified bush coat Calso known as beer jacket,
sport coat, etc.j It changes its wearer from an or-
dinary human being into a floating ragbag.
To begin with, most bush coats were designed
to fit either Primo Carnera or jim Thorpe. VVhen
the average young man is placed inside one he prac-
tically disappears, except for a slight protuberance
corresponding to the head and bits of flesh extend-
ing from the sleeves, which are taken for fingers.
The overly padded shoulders, along with the young
man's slender hips and legs, give a gorilla-like ap-
pearance. Add to this four large pockets, built to
hold anything from a Model T to a Mack truck,
sewed on the ample front, and a belt drawing the
hetergeneous mass together and you get an impres-
sion of this garment.
Robert johnson, weighing some l25 pounds, NVELS
the first to step out in one of these elephant coats,
but jack Kinzy and jim Clark were quick to follow
suit. Since these early bush coats were made of
heavy corduroy, you may imagine how the occu-
pant felt. It was just like taking a daily twelve-hour
steam bath. Not to be outdone, jim McVey often
marched to school wearing a sweater under his beer
jacket and an overcoat on top of the whole bundle
for protection against the nippy morning air.
We will, however, have to admit that conditions
have improved somewhat. The haberdashers, tak-
ing pity on the poor customers, this spring got out
a new line of beer jackets. These new arrivals were
made out of a light sackcloth, thus being much cool-
er to fit the season. Students by the droves flocked
down to 'obtain these new models, never stopping
to consider that they would be much more comfort-
able minus these jackets entirely, and would at the
same time look more like human beings.
These new creations were at least a change. Some
individuals, lost all winter, finally reappeared upon
putting on one of these lighter coats. But even these
had their shortcomings. They held their shape
about like a rubber balloon, and resembled a worked
over gunny sack drawn over the wearer's head.
There were no padded shoulders to conceal the in-
mate, but of course, the yards of extra material hung
down somewhere around his knees.
jack Gereke was one of the first to blossom forth
in this new garment, but Bob McLaughlin and jack
Casper were not far behind. After seeing them we
were convinced of the hopelessness of the situation.
Our real objection, however, comes from another
angle. These bush coats have much the same effect
as wearing a bustle would have. They take from
our manhood the dominant, virile quality and make
it weak and helpless. This winter several bush coat
sufferers attempted to engage in a game of basket-
ball, but the poor fellows played as if they were en-
cased in strait-jackets. They could hardly manage
themselves, let alone helping win the game. Thus
we say that our males have become cream-puffs.
Moreover, in the field of men's fashions there are
many other equally atrocious customs. We should
like to point out these conditions, with the hope that
next year may see an improvement.
Harold Myers is the first offender. He has the
habit of wearing a sweater to school without a shirt
-thus giving a half-done appearance, similar to a
peeled banana. Luckily, there are no other young
sportsmen who follow his example. Then there is
the matter of bow ties. Perhaps these at one time
looked fairly decent on some people, but when 5
foot 5 inch Glen VVhitaker jigs around the dance
floor sporting a loud new bow tie and Mary Lou
Stocks, it is too much.
Bill Campbell not only wears flashy bows, but he
gets them already tied, since he is not himself pro-
ficient in the art and Don Stein went to a dance in
his Tux without his bow being tied when he could
find no one to do the job one night. Even conserv-
ative Roy Stout has been converted to their use.
But, all in all, Armand Glenn is the worst of all. He
consistently wears them, and usually has a knot re-
sembling a four leaf clover. Perhaps Mr. Glenn
dresses in the dark, but that is no excuse.
It is necessary here to criticize Mr. Gereke again
for his fashion views. He is in the habit of wear-
ing a suit coat but no necktie. To conceal this ir-
regularity, he wears a muffler neatly knotted and
tucked in under his coat. This not only makes him
look like a movie actor, but also a damn fool.
Among fashion pace-setters on the campus is a
group that insists on wearing riding habits. They
look quite sporty for the time being, but lead dogs'
lives while so decked out. About every other person
they meet insists on inquiring, "XYhere's your
horse P" At first the sport lover makes some snappy

An Gzark Gal Visits K. C. U ....
This is your old friend, Euphemia joggler Pish,
just dropping you a line. Since we moved into the
city from down in the Qzarks, I have been awfully
busy, but I still prefer the good old country life
Qhay-necks, hoedowns, pitch parties, etc.j.
Believe me, Rebecca, I certainly have been hav-
ing some big times up here. The other day I had
an especially wild spree. I thought I'd go over and
give the University of Kansas City the once over
on account I may go there next year-just getting
lined up, you know. Vtfell, early one Friday morn-
ing, May 6, to be exact, I toddled over to the cam-
VVell siree, that certainly is a nice school. I saw
more well-dressed people! You know a lot of these
city folks don't know how to wear clothes, but at
that school they shore prettied up. They all looked
just like the folks down home, with ragged overalls
and loud handkerchiefs, and pretty colored shirts.
I liked one fellow especially. His name is Mike
DeFeo and he had the prettiest yellow hair and a
big derby hat. He shore was nice. Roy Beach had
the same color hair but he didn't have a bottle of
cider like Mike did.
A lot of the fellows had stickers on their backs
saying "Hobo Day" but I didn't want to but right
in, rude like, and ask somebody what it meant. May-
be it was some holiday like St. Valentine's Day. All
the kids were wandering around the quadrangle, they
called it, so I joined right in without anybody notic-
Pretty soon Graveyard, Dick Blume, Bill Buffe,
Bob Noll and Bill Abercrombie came tearing around
on some little scooters with real motors. In fact,
they were scooting around all day getting in every-
bodyls way. Then I saw one of those tough teach-
ers, by the name of Mr. Hilken, who was strutting
around the campus in some rags, and Burr Com-
mons was sporting a real, honest-to-goodness red
beard he had taken a week to grow. Three girls,
Cecile King, Beverly Nixon and Helen Senter ran
around showing off their ducky outfits, but all the
while clinging tightly to one another. I think they
were afraid of getting lost.
Finally, at 9:15 a lot of studious-looking bums
came dashing out of the buildings and everyone
rushed toward the assembly hall. Patty Powers,
Dona Anderman and I had quite a fight to see who
would sit on jack Casper's lap, but I finally won
out, and does he have hard knees! I would much
rather have sat on Charlie Young.
There was a real "hum dingeri' of a program in
the assembly. Ann jedlicka brought out a bunch
of bashful girls called Chikos who tried to act out
'Snow VVhite and the Seven Dwarfsf, The only
acting they did, however, was looking embarassed.
Not to be outdone, Lil Burch and some Beta Beta
Deltas trucked on out to give the news. It seems
that the Vo-camps have been in some kind of an
election, and the gals pretended like they were read-
ing the U-News, only they didn't have anything to
read. It must be a transparent paper.
In the meantime, Bob Poindexterls band was
making a terrible racket. But the hit of the day was

Who Did What
Cn Hobo Day .
George Goellner, Bob Poindexter and Alma Jane
VVirthman should be given credit for the work that
they did on planning Hobo Day. If you are won-
dering who made all the arrangements, planned the
program, purchased the prizes, called on the City
Manager to obtain permission for the parade, ob-
tained the police escort, arranged for the food to be
sold, the assembly program, the broadcast-then
look no further, for those responsible for all this
are the three mentioned above.
This is the second year that Bob Poindexter and
George Goellner have been in charge of Hobo Day.
They say themselves that they have stayed up
nights, neglected their lessons and term papers to
plan this great celebration. Bob Poindexter pulled
the band together for the second time and got a
truck for them to go downtown with the parade.
George Goellner was master-of-ceremonies for the
second time. Both these boys express their appre-
ciation to the Student Council and the student body
for their cooperation.
Alma Jane VVirthman obtained the official car for
the day. The LaSalle convertible sedan was given
by Greenlease Motor Car Company. The impor-
tant people rode in the car which headed the parade,
driven by Miss VVirthman. Those riding in the car
were Mr. Hilkin, best faculty hobog Burr Commons
and Charles Tupper, who tied for best man hobog
Betty Heyrman, best girl hobog and Sally Richard-
son, daughter of Hayes A. Richardson.
The judges of the best hobos were Mr. Harper,
Mr. McDermott and Glen VVhitaker. If we remem-
ber correctly, Mr. Harper should have been in the
running for the best faculty hobo.
According to Bob Poindexter, the only thing that
was out of order was the fact that the hobos lost
the sound truck when they got down town. The
KMBC Broadcasting Station was stationed at llth
and Grand. The line of hobos expected to see it
at llth and VValnut. After a short delay, the broad-
cast was made and a recording of it was taken and
rebroadcast at five olclock.
Bill Buffe and Bill Abercrombie helped lead the
parade with their motor bikes.
Betty Tharpe had a great time back at the Uni-
versity when she got several rides on the back of
the policemen's motorcycles. Io Duffy and Bud
Hites were driven round and round the Quad by
the youngest and best looking policeman. The red
light and the siren were both going.
I . 4
NVaiting to start the parade from the University are the
two most popular cars of the day. The highly decorated
one won the prize for the best hobo car. Part of the time
it went under its own power and part of the time it
was pushed. Loaded with student hobos it went round
and round the quad until all were dizzy.
There were some unusually funny things that hap-
pened that day. One was when Robert VVright's
pants were torn off during the assembly. He was
in a small crowd with Billy Reed, Clyde Norton and
several other freshmen boys when suddenly his
pants were gone. He managed to get out with some-
one's coat around him.
The Chiko's skit was very funny in one place.
One! They threw a fish from the stage into the
audience. It hit Ted Goodale. He didn't think it
was so funny.
Some of the Tophatters came dressed as the Yo-
cum family. Paul Wlillson was Lil' Abner, Betty
Tharpe was Daisy Mae, Joe Duffy was Mammy Yo-
cum, and Bud Hites was Pappy Yocum. They also
brought along a horse and buggy which pranced
all over the Quad.
All in all the students had quite a day. They
should know that through the efforts of Bob Poin-
dexter and George Goellner the whole day was a

QUESTICDNS of the
The editors have selected five questions which
they consider to be of importance to students at
the University of Kansas City. XVe have submitted
these questions of two members of each class, hop-
ing to get a cross section of the students' opinion
of these matters. No doubt there are many and var-
ied opinions about these points, but we feel that
each student here has candidly voiced his opinion.
After you have read their answers, ask yourself
honestly just how you would answer them. If you
feel that you do not know enough about them to
answer, it is your duty as a student of this Univer-
sity to find out about them. It is only through the
student body that we are able to discover what they
think of activities and questions of the school.
1. What is your opinion of the recent stu-
2. Do you think that the Student Council
does any good on the campus?
3. Name' one thing you dislike about the
4. Do you think the school should adopt
the compulsory activity ticket?
5. Woud you attend any other University
if you had the chance?
BY ROBERT VVRIGHT, '4l
l. I was at least satisfied with the way it turned
out, but-I don't think the Vo-camps can stuff the
ballot box as well as the Co-ops can. Anyhow they
are all swell fellows.
2. Maybe. QNO elaboration on this question.j
3. In the first place, we get too much homework,
and in the second place, when we go to the library
"Peaches" makes us study. If we don't study as
all serious minded University students should, we
-well-it's rather embarassing to be kicked out
twice in the same day.
4. Sure. Thatls what this school needs. NVith the
expansion we're having, such an idea is in keeping
with the times. Besides, if we tack the fee for such
a ticket onto the enrollment cost, maybe we can get
our old man to pay for it.
5. Never in a million years. I've had that chance,
but as for me, I'll take K. C. U. in preference to any
school in the country: K. U., Chicago, Illinois, Tas-
mania's School of Technology and Junior College
1 BY JEAN DUNHAM, ,4l
l. I believe that the Co-op party presented the best
candidates for the various offices-and that the stu-
dent body realized this.
2. The average student does not realize the impor-
tance of the Student Council. This organization
acts as a student governing body and has been an
important factor in the development of the Uni-
3. The thing I dislike most about the school is the
lack of school spirit. Perhaps this is due to the fact
that the students do not associate as closely as in
other universities where they live together in
4. I think that the compulsory activity ticket is a
very good idea. The students would naturally be-
come more interested in school activities and give
these activities the support they have always de-
served but never received.
5. A school in Kansas City offers me the oppor-
tunity of staying at home for two years and pre-
paring for specialized study at some other school.
I believe that the advantages obtained from attend-
ing an out-of-town school are indispensible in later
BY TXTARSHALL LOVETT, '40
l. I think that the choice of candidates by both
parties was, taken as a whole, very wise. The elec-
tion itself, with a few exceptions, was managed and
completed about as well as anyone could expect.
Z. Of course. The students need someone or some-
thing to act as a go-between for themselves and the
administration. Qur council performs this function
admirably and should continue to be supported by
all individuals on the campus, whether members of
social and departmental clubs or not.
3. There should be more student interest in all
types of student activities, be it sports, dramatics,
social affairs or student government. Taken from
the standpoint of the athletic department, for exam-
ple, there should be more student support of all in-
tra-mural sports. Until this cooperation is shown,
we can hardly hope for a successful intercollegiate
4. If the administration and student council really
include everything they say they will on the 1938-39
activity ticket, I would very gladly and willingly
give my support. Both last year and this, I have
felt that the money spent for the A. A. ticket was
given to support the Student Council. As much as
this financial assistance is needed, I feel that the
activity ticket is an investment and as such, should
be worth while.
5. I don't believe that I would. I like to feel, un-
founded as this feeling may be, that I am helping
the University to grow and expand. In addition, in
years to come, when and if I graduate, I will be
proud of the fact that once I was a "student" at this
University during its earliest formative years.
BY ANN CORBIN, '40
l. I think the recent student election was one of
the best we have had except for the unnecessary
electioneering at the polls and the surrounding ter-
ritory. There was a greater student interest than
formerly and more students voted, although the
number of voters is still small in proportion to the
student body. Each party should have eliminated
its petty jealousies and there would have been few-
er remarks and hurt feelings with the result of
the returns. May the party in power live up to its
2. The Student Council is becoming more power-
ful as it should. It is a representative body of stu-
dents who are willing to meet and try to secure the
things that the students desire most and need if
we are to witness the development of a fine insti-
tution. Formerly, perhaps, the Student Council was
not getting results. Interest was not centralized,
activities were not centralized, the need for a stu-
dent governing body was not felt. This year, and in
years to come, the duties of the Student Council in-
creased and will continue to increase. Yes, the Stu-
dent Council is necessary and it does do good.
3. I find no strong dislike for anything about the
school either in the administrative department, the
curiculum, or the social activities. My one sugges-
tion might be that the freshmen be given a little
more freedom in their choice of subjects, either by
way of fewer required subjects, or by choosing from
a larger group ones which will apply to their major.
4. I think there should be a compulsory activity
ticket. I donit imply copying other schools just be-
cause they have one, but if the greatest number of
students is to participate in the greatest number of
activities to the students' advantage, then the com-
pulsory activity ticket is the solution. It is more
economical for the students and requires an all-in-
clusive activity program.
5. I haven't had the chance to go to another
school, but if I had I wouldn't go now. Last year I
might have, but the last year's progress has changed
my opinion as it has that of many other students.
There is a future for the University of Kansas City
and I'm staying right here to watch it develop and
to enjoy the freedom of attending college while liv-
ing at home.
BY Cllzcilsm IQEDMOND, ,38
l. There was not as much enthusiasm as there
has been before.
Z. Very little. The Student Council hasn't taken
advantage of the power invested in them. They
could make the campus the most popular spot in
3. The lack of cooperation between students, Stu-
dent Council and organizations.
4. Yes. This might bring about cooperation be-
tween the Student Council, organizations and stu-
dents. It would also take care of financial difficul-
ties of the publications.
5. No. I have gone here four years and enjoyed
each one of them.-

l. From an unofficial and Houtsideri' point of view
everything looked as if it were on the level and con-
ducted fairly for both parties.
2. Undoubtedly the student body needs an official
and representative organ.
3. There still is a tendency for the students to
'fgroup up',-forming what may be called a "Coun-
try Clubu atmosphere. School life is bearable for
those 'ion the inn but for the outsider there is a
rather monotonous existence. This system has be-
come better in the four years that I have been here,
4. A compulsory activity ticket would go far in
bringing about a more representative student body
in our various campus activities-and we certainly
need that representation!
5. No. The University has developed for the
Greater Kansas City area, it has its natural "grow-
ing pains", but they should be recognized for what
they are, the University, without any doubt, some
day will have grown into colleges of educational
and academic life which will be the pride of any
city, no matter its size. I am glad I chose the Uni-
versity of Kansas City four years ago!

l. The last student election seemed to go off pret-
ty fairly for both sides. There was, of course, too
much electioneering near the polls, but I guess that
can't be helped as long as there are politics.
2. Yes, indeed, the Student Council does do good.
It is a good representation of the student body
which is working for the good of the student body.
It acts as a clearing house for questions that arise
concerning the university, the faculty, and the stu-

What Will They
From the top of your head to the tip of your toes
youyre different this season.
Curls have gone from the top of the head to the
Gibson role, then to just pin curls clustered at the
nape of the neck. Remember the spit curls of a
generation past? They returned this season in the
modified form of a long flat pin curl role at the tem-
ple. Many of the beauteous co-eds fell for the page-
boy role-all sizes, shapes and descriptions. Among
the most outstanding of the year were, Mary Ellen
Stewart's lovely blond page boy. Jewell Ferguson's
equally as lovely. but black hair, done in a page
boy all the way around. jean Bramley and jean
Miller, charming Cho-chins liked this style, too.
Evening wear brought bouquets instead of single
flowers to the hair. Also the ostrich feather made
its appearance in the hair.
Make-up is not exotic but lends the tone of sub-
dued brilliance, and powder was less rough and natu-
ral tones were discarded. Eye shadow is out-and
the jiffykits that cut down on the time of make-up
ordeal have full sway. jo Duffy has a clever one.
Earrings are outmoded except when one wants to
put on the dog. Can you remember when we had
a pair for each day in the month?
The old string of beads has been brought up to
the heavy metal chain, dog collar, or what have you.
Joyce Amluxen has a heavy gold chain on a rose-
colored dress. Crosses are in vogue for all occa-
sions and are done in gold, silver, jeweled or com-
bined with religious figures.
Charley McCarthy has appeared on many things
as have Snow VVhite and the Seven Dwarfs. During
the past year we have been infested with Donald
Duck, Mickey Mouse and Pluto the Pup. Now its
Charley on pins, clips, compacts, etc.
Dish water hands? Never, because then the nail
polish couldn't even be a feature. British tan, Vkfind-
sor, copper, cherry, mahogany, smoky, suntan, laven-
dar, have all appeared in the era. Claw-like nails
are being tapered to meet the tip of the finger. Ar-
tificial nails spoke at Christmas dances, but warm
weather is coming and bringing naturalness of tones
Grandmother wore a long swishing skirt, and be-
fore the crash of '29 mother wore dresses to her
knees. Almost immediately they dropped to 7-9 in-
ches from the floor. Last fall they began to climb

till they reached the high of 238, centering around
l4 inches. Short dresses are boons to people like
Patsy Tilford, Laura Nickerson and jane Martin.
A few years ago everything was pajamas. They
soon evolved into slacks, which were much in evi-
dence on hobo day. Slacks evolved into culottes.
They strike the happy medium between shorts and
skirts. Lou Southard wears a dubonnet colored pair.
Girls are wearing suspenders of multi-hues of
leather, elastic, or sacking. They came in with the
lamb of March. Mannish suits are in the vogue,
with wide, wide shoulders and slim pencil skirts.
Very fancy frills are worn with these suits.
Head bandanas sprang forth next. They very
nearly resemble the neckerchiefs worn so much this
winter. Many of them have baseball scores, auto-
graphs, famous speeches and stuff printed on them.
Kay Dominick and Timmy Monsees are often seen
in this peasant headgear.
Doodle bugs, spiders with long legs and colorful
bodies were pinned to lapels. Mary Lou Stocks
had a black one that everyone was trying to brush
off. Sue Hines sported a great jeweled one. New,
tiny shoes on suit lapels are in the spotlight. Like
the ones that Miss Score, in the office, wears.
Hopsacking, for summer, is here. Gaudy prints
didn't make such a splurge this year because win-
ter stayed so long. Alma jane VVirthman looks
very smart in a striking wheat-colored frock of very
rough weave. It is trimmed in bright red.
Chiffon dresses with an undergarment of a differ-
ent color infested with bows of a complimentary
color are being worn. Full skirts still hold sway
for evening wear and the most popular type or dress
is the simple, but striking, printed cotton. There
were many of these dresses seen at the Beta Zeta
Dance recently. Margaret Smith wore a white one
with gaily colored flowers. It had a very clever
short removable jacket.
Shoes have gone crazy this year-with wedge
heels being the latest inovation. Mary jane XYish-
ropp's tiny white ones are the cleverest that we've

A possible answer to the preplexing problem why
apparently normal young men should want to be-
come teachers occurred to us the other day. As we
recall it, one of the local big minds made a slight-
ing reference to our intellectual capabilities and
to same of all undergraduates in general. We
thought it very whimsical at the time and remember
saying to ourselves: "Old 'I' 4' Sf .I-Ie's sure a case,
all right, all right." .Upon arriving home and slump-
ing into our best dour mood we took a more ration-
al view ofthe whole matter. The upshot was: if any-
one but Dr. "' tl' if had said the same thing we would
either have punched him in the nose, or stalked off
in our very highest kind of dudgeon. And there you
are. Teachers are willing to be underpaid, laughed
at, and etc., for the pleasure of insulting undergrad-
uates with impunity. Which is a pretty poor reason,
but as good a one as we can think of for becoming
a member of the faculty. Unless it could be that
they are so damn lazy.
Taking It Qui In Trade .
QC01r1ti11ued from page 56D
one will submit a more efficient and systematic
method. The girls who work in the library up-
stairs, have the job of keeping all records straight
and all magazines picked up and racked. They at-
tempt to keep quiet in the room, which is often im-
possible, especially at the A. P. O. table Cpossession
is nine tenths of the lawj. Students who have never
been in the long, long racks of books downstairs,
should see them. There would be much less com-
plaining if they could see all the books. Then they
would realize that it takes more than a few seconds
to find a book that is probably written very indis-
tinctly on the call slip.
Perhaps those students who really have a job
are those who assist in laboratories, or those who
grade papers, and exams for professors. The labor-
atory assistants have to put up with everything.
They are expected Qby the studentsj to know just
as much as the professor himself. The students
take advantage of the student assistant and have
him do as much of their work as possible. The
student who grades papers, cannot be discussed
easily. It depends upon the student himself. I-Ie
surely does his work thoroughly, too thoroughly,
is the complaint of some students.
The students who work in the bookstore are
known by every student at the campus, for some-
time or another, the student finally gets into the
bookstore to buy something. Often a belated text-
book, just before the finals. The bookstore sells
almost everything, including tobacco and pipes.
The students who work in the cafeteria really
work. They get pretty tired of carrying coke bot-
tles around all the time, because that seems to be
the main diet of all students on the campus.
The students who can be seen working, especially
at certain times of the year, are those who work
in the yard, clearing dandelions and cutting grass.
Qnly girls are allowed to work in the infirmary,
which has been moved this year, and has obtained
the gift of three wonderful hospital beds.
Students who work their way through the Uni-
versity are to be admired and respected. To them
perhaps it doesn't seem hard work, for "you get just
as much out of your education as put in it."

a skit put on by the Sigma Betas. It seems that
Georgia Witter as Queen Isabella had a crush on
Christopher Columbus, Allene Ragan, so they sailed
over to America. On the shore they found Virginia
Gatchell, who played like she was a toughy by in-
haling a cigar, and she told them that they had bet-
ter sail back to avoid thedepression. I just hope
Virginia didn't get sick on that cigar. Then Ernest
Berlin, Mike DeFeo and Bill Buffe were in some
kind of a crazy skit. But there was one good spot
when the cutest little freshman by the name of Pet-
ersen came out and acted just ducky.
Next everybody rushed for their cars to join the
parade. jim jones, Bill Dow and Harold Myers,
all asked me to go with them, but I was too tricky
because I just climbed up on the band truck. VVith
a sure enough police escort the long line of cars
wound back and forth around town, finally ending
up at the Municipal Auditorium. Then Roy Stout
led a snake dance all through down town, blocking
traffic and finally ending up in the middle of Grand
Avenue, between lOth and llth streets.
Then KMBC broadcast the celebration. Dean
Kavorinis and his gal said Hello to all the radio
listeners, and George Goellner told them about Ho-
It seems that the first Hobo Day was just an ord-
inary school festival, but the second one, three years
ago, was a riot. Someone had suddenly suggested
going down to junior College, so the whole gang
drove down and marched through the halls. Some-
one called the fire department and then the K. C. U.
bunch formed a snake dance through the heart of
town. This suggested the program for the next
year, which was more orderly, being planned in ad-
vance. Now, this year it seems they had a bigger
time than ever.
But as I was saying, the various students were
talking on the radio. Glen YVhitaker, who was
next, said, "Nushelup ot sorprstrive-accredited-
zzzzzzzz. Sulvtmup enrptivmga tuou k oru antuens
vagenfiebakrjaialv Then everybody rushed back
to school. That afternoon the seniors under the
pitching of Byron Bell trimmed the faculty in base-
ball, and a mixed game was just starting when it
began to pour rain. I would have liked to see some
of those ladylike gals play ball.
That night there was a dance. Some of the kids
were dumb enough to put on those awful clothes
again, but the dance was swell anyway. It ended
at 9:00 o'clock, and since it was raining too hard for
the bonfire, Hobo Day was officially over. It was
shore too bad it rained, but I know I had a perfect
time anyway, and I believe all the poor, overworked
students loved it. VVell, I'll be seein' you, Rebecca.

produced an outfit of very dissipated-looking in-
dividuals and audible murmurs of disapproval from
the Dean's office.
The night of April 16, whatever fears that might
have been held for the failure of the show were
dissipated. Fee Fie Faux Pas was presented as a
rounded. well-planned and executed show. The
Rhythm Choir, Dance Chorus, ballet and the leads.
lfrnest Berlin, Bill Buffe, Lillian Burch, Bill and
junie Fisher, Glenda Speakman. Goody Lyons,
jack Gereke and Virginia Sanders, all filled their
parts more than adequately. The success of the
show was due in no small degree to the work of
Bert Buhrman of K. C. M. O. with the rhythm
choir and of Della VVillson with the dancers.
Dwight Newton's really fine songs have been
presented to jim Noll, and N. B. C. orchestra lead-
er who selected three of them for publication.
The Tophatters' Club feels that it has done much
for the University in the matter of stirring up out-
side interest in the school, and in the advertising
which it has brought it, besides the obvious ad-
vantages of display of our talent and the provision
of an outlet for it.

comeback, but this invariable question asked time
after time becomes monotonous. However, Bob
Kelly, Roger Atzenweiler, Howard Speer, Gene
Friedman and Russell Hall are among those strong
enough to withstand the terrible beating they have
Lloyd Doolittle introduced a novelty this spring
and several "half-brains" followed suit. He, one
morning, appeared at school with a shirt very much
resembling a "sweat shirt", but much fancier and
dyed a bright yellow. This style looks fairly well
on Mr. Doolittle, but Jim Gatchell and Ralph Taylor
just naturally look a little undressed when so attired.
Dr. Trimble sets the pace for the faculty "dress-
ers" by bringing us those Kentucky customs. Doc
has at some time or other procured a battleship's
anchor chain, which he wears as a watch chain. This
causes him to list a little in walking, but a very loud
pair of socks usually conceals that fact.
It is an admitted truth that white coats look nice
on young gentlemen. It also is nice for these young
gentlemen to display these coats by cutting as many
girls as possible at a dance. However, when these
same lads try to show off for the whole world how
many girls they have cut, it is no longer "cricket".
That is often what happens, nevertheless, for just
look at john lVIcNelly, Roland Bierly, or Bill Dow
at the next dance. You will see a separate and dis-
tinct lipstick mark for each girl they have danced
with. These marks range from high on the collar
to near the waist, and add greatly to the appearance
of the outfit.
In a late issue of Esquire an announcement was
made that summer Tuxedo coats will soon be ob-
tainable in all colors. It will be interesting to wait
and watch for some young gallant to appear at a
spring dance in a baby pink coat with a green bow
tie. It is quite likely to happen, considering the
trend in men's fashions this last year at K. C. U.-

dents. VVithout it the democratic policy on which we

3. My main objection is to the seeming lack of

activities. These activities cannot be successful with-
out the wholehearted cooperation of all the stu-
4. A compulsory activity would do much to help
out the student activity question. In this way every-
one would take part in everything. These different
activities are here for the good of the students and
cannot go on without the financial backing as well
as cooperation. A compulsory activity ticket would
assure the financial side, and, I think since everyone
will be taking part in them, the activities will gain
5. No, I wouldnlt go to another school if I had the
chance. Perhaps I would have two years ago, but
most of the troubles seem to be ironed out and we
are progressing rapidly. Almost every day some-
thing new happens that aids in the growth of the
University of Kansas City. Itls quite an experience
to be in on the ground floor of the development of
an institution such as ours is going to be.

l. I think that something should be done in those
cases where question was raised about the example
of several people going to vote and finding their
name scratched off for having voted when such was
not the case. There is no earthly reason for cheating
at a Student Election. If students cannot get to-
gether and function for what is for the good of the
majority and for what the majority desires then
there is something radically wrong. I would like to
see a more regulated and supervised election. I
know there have been attempts at just this in past
years and they have failed, but in the future some
such scheme must be adopted for full satisfaction.
f2. For one thing I do not like to see the campus
all painted up during various campaigns. The effect
is certainly ugly and disgracing to the supposed
mentality of college students. Also I would like to
see more wholesale support behind the athletic de-
partment and the Intra-Mural sports. This should
be one of the most important branches of extra-
curicular activity on our campus. I do not like the
apparent lack of interest of all concerned.
3. In regard to the Student Council I feel that lit-
erally they accomplish very little if anything at all.
But I think that we should keep a Student Coun-
cil. A Student Council is needed, but just how much
they actually accomplish is questionable.
4. I think that we should have a compulsory ac-
tivity ticket. This would add support and backing to
various activities and we know that all our extra-
curricular activities need the students' wholehearted
5. I am satisfied with the University of Kansas
City and if I had a chance to go somewhere else,
that would depend upon the school-but I have no
other school in mind.- .
Personal Analysis Chart . . .
After watching the campus leaders and carefully
noting their little peculiarities, the editors have
compiled the following personal analysis chart. Give
yourself ten points for each item that you honestly
feel is a part of your personality.
l. VVear loud socks like jim jones without hav-
ing someone call the fire department?
2. Chew a whole package of gum like Dr. Nyquist,
and deliver an oration at the same time?
3. Nonchalantly park on the wrong side of the
street next to a no-parking sign, like Hal Mather?
4. Use the same line sucessfully on more than one,
like Eddie Vaughn?
5. Smoke Dr. I-Ioecker's mixture and still keep
6. Wlear your hair as long as Charles Tupper does
without paying a dog tax?
7. Do without the family bus and still be seen
everyplace, like no one on the campus?
8. VVrite f'April Fooll' on blank test papers, like
Patsy Tilford does?
9. Pass Armand Glenn without making some
crack about his shirts?
l0. Crash all the spring parties, like Patty Power?
If your score is l00, subtract 50 for being a pre-
varicatorg if it is from 90 to 40, we predict a great
future for you at Saint joe, if you score 30 to 0, there
is some hope for you, you will probably be a campus
leader in spite of your abnormality.

The editor, publisher and business manager of
the yearbook of the University of Kansas City,
feel indeed proud that they are the first to publish
this type of annual on the campus of the University.
Vve have, at one time or another, related its dis-
tinct advantage over the old type. Xwe feel, how-
ever, that its main advantage is in the financial
standing of the magazines. Since it is easier to
get advertising for a book that is edited in two or
more issues. the problem of keeping the publica-
tion out of the "red" is aided immensely.
The editors of the book have found that students
will willingly work on such a publication with
much more spirit and enthusiasm. Editors of other
magazine yearbooks report the same spirit and
interest. They also have found this type of magazine
makes it possible to put the publication on its feet
and keep it there.
The staffs and assistants of this yearls year-

book deserve both praise and credit for the work
that they have done. For instance, Paul VVillson,
who designed all three covers, gave much of his
valuable time from that immense job of trying to
pass seminar and graduate. to do the covers. Much
credit goes to Eddie Schuett, without whom there
would be no snapshots of the students. Snapping
shots day after day and chasing people around to
obtain their pictures is no fun. Eddie also developed
and printed all the pictures he took.
The editors cannot thank the class editors enough
for taking off their hands that great job of getting
students to have their pictures taken at Leo Sterns.
Jean Dunham, Lucille Southard, Jane Martin and
Bill Dow were the freshman, sophomore, junior
and senior editors, respectively.
Also, on the art staff were Lorraine Stith, whose
lineoleum cuts brightened the first issue no end.

lf an average student attempts to take in every
dance given during the spring season, it usually
takes the entire summer to catch up on that extra
sleep and rest. needed for complete recouperation.
As each sorority and fratenity battles to pull itself
together along with cramming for last-minute suc-
cess in the finals in order to keep the "cn average
of good standing, so do stags battle for bids and
then sneak in the back doors anyhow.
Formerly it was the custom to have the spring
formals later than the middle of May. Often they
stretched as far into June as the l5th. Une dance
followed on the heels of another and by the time
the season was over you had been trotting to
Quivera every night for a week, leaving you de-
claring, "l never want to see Quivera again as long
as I live." Possibly it isn't so much the Quivera
part as it is the hectic rush and long, often boring,
drive, the slight dissepation Qwhich most won't
admitj and the same people again and again.
The A. P. Ofs began the spring season this year
with an early dinner-dance at Hillcrest Country
Club on May 5. Long before finals, the boys and
girls had a really good time without that pretense
of worry that all began to sport later. The private
dinner of the members was saved from monotony
of the same faces by admitting guests with biqls for
the dance later. All in all, the dance was considered
a hugh success by those who attended.
Dances were arranged in the unoriginal manner of
coming about one week apart, or at least there was
one dance a week. Following the A. P. O., dance
about a week was the Beta Zeta formal on Friday,
May 13, at Quivera. Still too cool to walk out on
the boardwalk over the water tone of Quivera's
main attractionsj restless dancers had to be con-
tented to anible along the adjoining porch. Stags
have always been a little reluctant about taking
that long drive to Quivera. Most of the boys like
dances with fewer stags, even if the girls do not.
Perhaps this is the reason for the growing preval-
ence of private dances.
The Sigma Beta Spring Formal was the next to
appear on the list and held at Quivera, too, it seized
the next Friday and took over in fine style. In
spite of the still cool weather there was an ex-
cellent crowd and the usual dazzling femmes out-
doing each other in dancing frocks. As yet un-
known. the Quad Queen was at the dance unan-
nounced and unknown even to her sorority sisters
The newly organized and youngest club on the
campus took the night of May 26, to have their
private dinner dance. The select fifteen with their
select ladies, Dr. and Mrs. Decker, and Dean and
Mrs. Bartle had a delightful dinner and dance at
the Kansas City Club. The Bounders like their
name and don't give a damn what anybody thinks.
Those "smooth" Chikos were the next to enter-
tain with an invitational party at Quivera on the
night of May 27. The dance was well represented
by K. C. U. students as well as distinguished faculty
members and their wives. There were a noticable
number of dresses with no shoulder straps, which
kept a number of boys wondering what held them
up. There almost was an embarrassing accident
when following a young lady with such a dress
down the steps a young gentleman accidently step-
ped on the trailing skirt of the dress. He just
stepped off in time.
On June 3, the Cho-Chins of the University and
those at Junior College celebrated at Quivera by
giving a usual Cho-Chin spring formal. Ask an out-
sider how the dance was and the answer will be
Hcrowdedli' Ask a Cho-Chin the same thing and
she will seriously say, "It wasn't as crowded as
usualf, And for the life of anyone how can they
tell. Qverheard a remark of a prominent biggy of
the campus, "They don't think they're having a
dance unless they've got the whole school theref'
june 3 ended the actual school term. Graduation
was held on June 6 and everyone called it quits ex-
cept those waiting for summer school to start.
Unprecedented as it was, there were two dances
scheduled for the night of June 7. Through a
mixed-up scurry for dance dates and a little stub-
bornness the two sororities held their dances on
the same night. Both were offered competition by
the fact that Orrin Tucker made a one-night ap-
pearance at Fairyland Park. It seemed to bother no
one however and both dances were a success. Even
so, there were no hard feelings and there are compli-
ments to that affect.
The U and l's celebrated the evening for them-
selves by beginning with a private dinner at Hill-
crest Country. Club. Later, Chuck Donn's orchestra
swung out for them in a ballroom decorated with
silver leaves and big purple balloons. In spite of it
being a bid dance, its effords at making it so were
foiled b ythe entrance of stags through the back
doors. The weather was still cool, but not too cool
for a short walk to the ninth green, the scene of
a lightening tragedy about four days before.

Teaching Design and-Representation and Ancient
and Medieval Art is VVilliam A. McDermott, with
an A. B. from Carnegie Tech. Last year he was
Regional Art Director for the VVPA in the Penn-
sylvania district. Married at Christmas time, back
in Pennsylvania, he and his sculptress wife are set-
tled comfortably near the U. You will find his
name in VVho,s Wlho.
XYilliam Hotchkiss, a new instructor in history,
received training at Qhio State and got his Ph. D.
at the University of Chicago. He teaches Wlestern
Civilization, English, History, Rennaissance and
Everything has happened at the University in the
last year, even to getting new faculty members. Not
to be content with having seven new additions, we
had to have a guest instructor in the English de-
partment. The guest was John Gould Fletcher who
was with us for the first semester only. Mr. Fletcher
is an internationally known poet.
Alexander Cappon is the new member of the Eng-
lish Department. He received his Ph. D. from Chi-
cago University. He has taught at Montana State
University. Here, he instructed in Freshman Eng-
lish and conducted some of the lecture courses. Re-
cently, he became editor of the University Review
when Dr. Decker was forced to resign because of
Henry Hilken, a l937 addition to the campus, is
well liked by the students, especially in the eco-
nomics department. He received his A. B. and his
M. A. at Princeton University. He is now working
on his Ph. D. at the University of Chicago. He
teaches principles of economics and the social con-
trol of business.
Mr. Robert Shubach, the object of admiration
of many of the beauteous co-eds, is working on his
Ph. D. at the University of Chicago. He is teach-
ing Accounting lll and -ll l. He received his A. B.
from Chicago. lt was a long time before a lot of
the students realized that he wasn't a good-looking
student, but an instructor.
Q. Sd1'1fOI'd, Deon of Men
Besides being the Dean of Men, Dean Sanford
teaches several classes in education. His practical
progressive nature and his pedagogical soundness
have done much in helping the steady growth of the
University's efficient curriculum. His brilliant ca-
reer as an educator proves him to be fully capable
of his office. He cooperated with the Inter-Frate1'n-
ity council in their rushing season this year and bid-
ding was conducted through his office.

Smiling Glen G. Bartle, chairman of the Geology
Department, is one of the best-liked professors of
the campus. Quiet and easy going, with an infec-
tious laugh, he still conducts his classes in geology
and performs the duties of Dean of the University.
Appointed shortly before the second semester of
l938, he slipped into his official duties with no fuss
and bother. Before he came to the U. he taught
at Junior College. Students will tell you that he is
a swell fellow and takes his advanced classes to field
trips in the Ozarks. Likes to spend a week-end
with Lyle Stephenson who is a close friend of his,
and whose hobby is geology. Like all outdoor men
he likes to hunt. -

Cigarettes and Cokes .
Cigarettes and cokes-this very title speaks of
friendships, of long bull sessions, of interesting sto-
ries, of delightful memories. Somehow while sipping
a coke and enjoying a cigarette a person gradually
becomes aware of the true inner self of his compan-
ions. New and closer associations quietly and natur-
ally are formed.
The University cafeteria is an interesting place
to observe these new associations. It is more than
a mere eating place g--it is a pleasant spot to relax
and talk. From S o'clock in the morning until late
in the afternoon students partially fill the many ta-
bles. The cafeteria is the first place to observe bud-
ding romances or true companionships. VVith the
hum of the motor of the coke machine in the back-
ground, the buzz of many conversations constantly
In one corner there is usually a carefree, loqua-
cious' couple. It is Mary Alice McKay and Howard
Gossage. Many a professor would find two of his
absentee members only by looking in this corner
during the class period.
The center of the room is the hang-out for a trio
of pretty girls, still sincere and unsophisticate'd.
They are Beverly Nixon, Cecil King ond Helen
Senter, who come to the cafeteria only when class
work is done. Buzzing around them is vociferous
Johnny Redman with his inevitable grin, while Bill
Dow is sitting back and enjoying both Redman
and the trio.
At an adjoining table sits a quiet, red-headed boy
and a girl fairly effervescing with energy. lt is Ber-
nie Koehler and Dona Anderman. She is uncon-
sciously playing a tune with her hands while vi-
vaciously telling a story. Not far off is a group of
boys bunchecl around one man. They are wittily dis-
cussing deep problems but not without a humorous
side. Of course it is Dr. Decker with his colleagues,
Bill McDonell, Allan Paris and perhaps Bob Graf-
The adjoining table is much more contained and
sober. Madge Johnson and Roland Bierly are half
studying, half conversing, but jim Gant and Jean
Bierly are even more quiet. Then we see a table of
girls. They seem to be entirely U and l's. jane Mar-
tin, Jeanette Spears, Margaret Smith and Alma Jane
Evans are conducting a lively bull session while
daintily eating lunch.
Mrs. Burge is maternally watching over the room
from her perch behind the cash register like a hen
with a flock of chickens. Here and there a student
is deep in study, however, a variety of wild sounds
emanate from one spot. lt is Patty Power bouncing
up and down and violently waving her arms to em-
phasize an incident she is relating. Bill Hensley, Bill
Campbell and Roger Atzenweiler are watching with
mingled interest and amusement.
Harold Myers, Bob Noll, Nina Gene VVilkins and
Shirley johnson are in another corner. Harold
seems perturbed that the pickle with his sandwich
was too small, besides being a little dizzy from in-
haling a cigarette. In the very center of the room is
an interesting foursome-Jack Gereke, Virginia San-
ders, John McNeely and Mary VVinkleman. Jack has
assumed his usual movie actor pose, and is trying
to smoke a cigarette nochalantly, without suc-
Iean Marie Downey, Nancy Glover and Allene
Ragan lend a pleasant atmosphere to the scene, as
do the quieter Berniece Jewell, Marjorie Lovejoy
and Barbara jean VVarner. They probably are dis-
cussing the exciting happenings of the past week-
end and their respective dates. Not far away is a
romance that has been going for four years. It is
between next year's president, Lloyd Doolittle and
his naive Georgia Witter.
One student seems to be making a speech. He has
half risen from his chair, eloquently to gesture while
stumbling along vocally. He is small, curly-headed,
with rimless glasses. Cf course it could be no one
but Prez Glen Vlfhitaker. Among his listeners and
admirers are Mary Lou Stocks, Bob Roepe and Wil-
lard VVarner, who let Glen do most of the talking
In the teachers' section is Mr. Baseman who is
doing mental gymnastics trying to calculate how
many students he will give BW' double dot CMr.
Baseman has his own original grading systenrj A-
cross from him sits Dr. Bassett with his mind far
away, probably thinking of some fossil he discov-
ered in Colorado. Mr. Harper is yawning between
bites of lunch, and Dr. Bartle is busy turning on
Gur cafeteria is always an entrancing spot to vis-
it. It boasts not of its food, but of the constantly
shifting scene passing before the alert observer's
eye. The next time you drop in, look around more
closely. There is a wealth of various types of per-
sonalities and discussions. K. C. U. is showing an-
other side besides that of scholastic learning. VVith
cigarettes and cokes the students are becoming ac-
quainted with fellow classmates-in fact becoming
acquainted with life itself.

of the University oi Kansas City
The orchestra has been in existence only a short
time. It had its beginning under Sir Carl Busch, and
was continued under Dr. Robert D. VV. Adams, and
is now under the direction of Mr. Harold Newton.
Mr. Newton is a most able conductor and the
University is fortunate in having him for the di-
rector. Equipped with both natural talent and good
schooling he fills a position which is an important
one. The orchestra itselt has set the high standard
that it is endeavoring to maintain.
Their goal is to form an orchestra of symphonic
proportions and performance and to do this in a
l'r1,1fv Um' lf1n1u'1'r'r1'-ffi'rl1"w
year. An orchestra of this kind. ot amateur stand-
ing, is needed by Kansas City, to give students
an opportunity to play in a symphonic orchestra
and to attract friends of the University to concerts
which would be presented each year.
The orchestra has in the interest and cooperation
of the University and has all the available resources
with which to work. It is through work and en-
thusiasm that the orchestra expects to achieve this
goal. They also hope to attract more musical stu-
dents by having an enlarged music department.

Athletics . .
NNith inter-collegiate athletics definitely not to
be considered for five more years, K. C. U. buckled
down to a program of intra-mural activities by far
the most successful yet tried.
This year there was an especially tight race in
the inter-class sports. The Juniors and Freshmen
tied for first place with 94 points each ,the Sopho-
mores were third with a score of 78, and the Seniors
had Sl. Especially to be commended are the juniors.
since they stood third at the end of the first
semester with only 20 points, compared to 46 for
the Sophomores and 4l for the Freshmen. This
rapid rise is due in large part to Harold Myers,
who captained the victorious junior basketball
team and the second-place Junior baseball team.
Since at the first of the season the race appeared
to bc between the Freshmen and Sophomores this
unexpected victory is particularly noteworthy.
The scoring was as follows:
Fr. So. Jr. Sr.
Football 3 30 18 9
Golf 13 6 1 0
Tennis 8 10 1 0
Horseshoes 17 0 0 3
Score end of
lst Semester 41 46 20 12
Basketball 18 9 30 3
Bowling 12 2 20 6
Swiming 20 12 6 0
Baseball 3 9 18 30
Total 94 78 94 51
For group sports the scoring was 30-18-9-3, for
bowling and swimming it was 20-12-6-25 for in-
dividual sports, 10-6-3-1. The second semester
tennis, badminton, handball and horseshoses were
not completed because of the unusually rainy spring.
However, the indications were that the Juniors
and Freshmen would have kept their respective
positions. Volleyball and soccer were not played
because of lack of interest.
Opening the year's games in the early fall came
football. The ceded Sophomore team went through
as expected, under the leadership of Charles Satter-
lee and Ace Johnson but the Freshmen fizzled out
after their imposing start, and finished in fourth
place. The Juniors barely nosed out the Seniors
for second place after Art Charvat and James
Gatchell snagged long passes in the closing minutes
In the golf tournament Ray Loman easily man-
aged to win. After the tennis competition dragged
on for several months and still was not finished,
Bob Anderson, Soph.. and James Cant, Fr., were
declared winners. Since several of the best tennis
players in the school were not entered this proved
an unconvincing victory. The horseshoe tournament
was a sweep for the Freshmen. They won first,
second and fourth.
VVith the beginning of the second semester, and
worry about grades over for a time, athletics took
on a new vigor. The basketball tournament, held in
the Boulevard Manor gymnasium, was unusually
popular. Again the Soph team was the favorite.
but the junior squad, playing most of their games
with only four men, trounced the Sophomores twice
and allowed the erratic Freshman team to capture
second. Harold Myers was high scorer of the league
with an average of 18.66 points per gameg Barney
Rawlings was second with 13.505 and Jim Gant
Page Ont' Hzrlzclrm'-f0111'fc'wz

ability and sportsmanship are:

Bowling as usual was a popular sport. The
Juniors. led by Ross VVillhite, captured first. while
the strong Freshman team, with Charles Young,
Sam Thomas and Eugene Sackin, was second. Bill

scorers but their team failed to stand up well be-

The swimming meet proved to be very close. The
Freshmen won first place with 20 points after Sam
Thomas had taken the diving contest. The Sopho-
mores, who had led during most of the meet be-
cause of the swimming of Ace johnson, were
forced back to second, with 18 points. The Juniors
were a close third with 16 points after the relay

team combination of Bob Grafrath, Jack Mullen
and VVill Mansfield got to functioning.
The spring tennis tournament had far more en-
trants than did the fall tourney, partly because of
the better condition of the courts. Many exciting
matches were played but the siege of rainy weather
prohibited its completion. Bill Dow, Harold Myers,
Jim Gant and jack C-ereke were the favored competi-
Baseball provided a thrilling climax to the intra-
mural sports program, The games nearly always at-
tracted excesses of players, besides some twenty to
fifty spectators. The Senior team was not highly
regarded until they produced a true discovery in the
person of Byron Bell, star pitcher. Bell practically
won the championship for his class singlehanded.
The Juniors led the league until Bell appeared, but
were forced to be satisfied in the runner-up posi-
tion. The all-stars are

The University Players .
The students on the campus have certainly been
aware of Mr. Carl Johnson during his first year
here. Beginning early in Gctober with play try-
outs, Mr. Johnson has led the University Players
through a successful year. The first production of
the mighty Johnson art players was the highly en-
tertaining comedy f'The Late Christopher Bean."
Contrary to previous efforts, the advertising cam-
paign used for this play was a swell idea. Beans
Cin reality peasj were strung and hung around the
Ad building, Probably some of the happy students
didn't know the differenct. Tickets really sold and
the play was presented in the Center Playhouse.
The cast was as follows:
Dr. Haggett .,..L....Le... - Henry Efferts
Mrs. Haggett L.,.s,...a Edith Ann Pierce
Susan ...,........e,....., Lillian Burch

Tallant .,,...e....e L--- ee....e Bill Dow
Davenport s...e,....s, .. .se,. Bob Nelson
Rosen s.a.L....e,...e, ...ee. Al VVorrel
The students enjoyed the performances of the
cast immensly. The acting of Jim Rawlings and
Page Our Huildrfd-i'zw111'y
Lillian Burch was, in places, very real. Those close
to the stage enjoyed Edith Ann Pierce's determined
efforts not to laugh-she didn't either. The entire
cast was excellent and the first play was a hit.
Soon after the students returned from the Chirst-
mas holidays there was an assembly in which Mr.
Johnson surprised the worn-out and holiday-weary
students by presenting to them a hilarious melo-
dramatic comedy the "Pot Boilersf' The plot was
goofy and the characters inane but the audience
liked it. This one-act satire was written by Alice
Gerstenberg, and the setting was a partially set
stage portraying a morning rehearsal in a large
theatre. Bob Keller, Lucille Southard, VVilliam
Ruluva, Lloy Harris, Helen Kaminsky and Arthur
Charyat were the honorable yet" crazy cast.
Early in February it was announced that the
University Players had selected their spring play,
"Gammer Gurtonis Needlef and early English
farce. It was first presented at Christ College,
Cambridge, in 1566. The costumes, scenery and
properties were all designed and executed by the
members of th production staff. Those in charge
of manufacturing the properties were Lloy Harris,

The costumes were selected and fitted by Celia
Redmond, Jane Crawford, Josephine Duffy, Eileen
Kowalsky and Ann Corbin. Those who took charge
of the properties were Arthur Charvat, Margery
Ditzen and Helen Kaminsky. Paul Babb was stage
manager and johnny Hughes was the all-important
Paul Snider, a special dramatics student, com-
pletely lived the part of Diccon the Bedlam. He was
ably supported by Al VVorrell as Hodgeg Ann
Corbin as Tybg Betty Lairdon as Gammer Gurtong
Eileen Kowlasky as Dame Chatteg Willie Kuluva
as Dr. Rat, and Bob Keller as Master Baylye with
Paul Babb as his sleepy servant.
Betty Boutell was cast as Doll, a part being all
giggles and hiccoughs and Betty certainly made
the most of that part. She nearly killed the audience
with her awful wig and her blacked-out teeth.
Helen Kaminsky as the yellow-haired boy of all
work and errand boy was excellent.
Most of the characters seemed to completely
forget that they were college students giving a
play. Diccon, especially was perfection. His mouth
and its motions was a thing to behold. Al VVorrel's
characterization of the stupid Hodge, at times was
screamingly funny. Eileen Kowlasky, padded to
perfection, was sharp and clever in her dialogue.
VVhile Gammer Gurton, Betty Laridon, suffered
with a very bad cold, she trouped like a veteran
and gave an excellent performance. VVillie Kuluva's
first appearance on the stage really set things go-
ing and from then on the farce became bedlam.
Such explosive dialogue and rowdy action as
presented in this pre-Elizabethan comedy is far
removed from the subtle sophisticated comedy that
seemed to be preferred at the present time. It was a
great change for the University students and it
went over in a large way. Gur congratulations to
the University Players and all those who helped in
the play, but especially to Mr. Carl Johnson, who
has really shown us what the students can do.

Then they trust it brings them luck
If they just look it over.
But Billy Reed's a careful chap,
In the grass all day he'd sit-
And when he found a four-leafed clover,
He'd simply swallow it.

Her excellent cutting brought praise from both
printer and engraver. George Wade must be thank-
ed for the quick work on a hurry-up cartoon. Four
hours of straight work with no time off is no
joke, and George did a swell job.
There are always certain people on a staff who
are the pride and joy of the editor. Two such people
are Mary Harbord and VVilbur Mansfield. Wihen
they are told what is wanted and when, they can be
depended upon to do the best possible and to get it
done and in.
Dorothy Carter gave fine accounts of the fresh-
man and sophomore classes, while Barney Rawlings
wrote biographies of two of our outstanding people
on the campus.
Those who have cut and mounted pictures to be
engraved know the amount of work in this. Credit
for mounting the class panels, both under-class-
men and seniors goes to Alma jane Evans who
spent several Saturdays at the U. working on them.
All of the students know Allan Paris and there is
no need to tell how indispensible he is to the book.
His "Between the Beersw is famous on the campus.
Un the business end of the book, were such
notables as VVillard VVarner, Rex Morgan, johnny
Redman, Bill McDonell and Glenn Stebbins, who
sold subscriptions to the book. William Gilbirds
suffered as auditor for the publication and the en-
tire publication wishes to thank Roddy Osborn,
the Student Auditorg the Student Council, and Mr.
Baker for their cooperation in making this year-

On the same evening of june 7 the Beta Beta
Delta sorority of the University and junior College
held their spring formal in the Little Theatre of the
Municipal Auditorium to the tune of Red Black-
burns' orchestra. Crowded with noteworthy's from
junior College and the University it was a swell
dance in spite of it being a little warm.
The flashy Bentonians of Junior College and
the University climaxed the season with their final
formal at the Elms Hotel in Excelsior Springs. Al-
most a tradition now, at least one group must give
a dance at the Elms, and it is usually the Benton-
ians. If they give bids to all those upon whom
they thrust subscription tickets during the year
they must have had an overwhelming crowd.
