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 'll 1 i Q Q l l It l 0' Q Cldy. 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 from outside. The third general method is the hand signal method, best used during a true-false exam. One extended finger-true. Two extended fingers- false. 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 guilt.

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. .. O1.-1.- 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 Page Eight . . .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 is doomed. .l-O-ll 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 I I 0 Q UQ 0 O Q' O U! 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." . -T-O- Candid Camera 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 body."j .....O,.. 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. lo-1. 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. MOM.. The Significance 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" MO...- 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 summer cabins. 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 Deadf' -Allan E. Paris Page Nine First Quadrangle Completed 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 the campus. 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- Pugc Toni 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. -Jllary Harbord I 1 .sew-611 --'iff -, :H Q a ,Q ,vt ,, L y. .

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.

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. T,.T .

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 6 friends by treating them to an occasional dance. 1 -O- - 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. .Ti..T..O 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. O 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. if I ' m DA -"' WC fit QD! 9 1. 9 ' -J M1250 Analysis - - - Order Please! 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. .MOM 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. o 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 points. 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 it won. 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. .1 O- Nominated for Outstanding Members of: zz.. V. ,,,--v ---v - , . -'- - fn.:-gA11:'f" w BETA BETA DELTA 2 2 22 cw ' . .

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 half semesters. 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- tion. To prove his ability, Frank be- came an Eagle Scout in the mini- mum time of a year and three months. 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.

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. fl C if gi Man of the Year 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 ' fWCQ 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 intervening months. -Hoaurci Gossage Page Thirty-one f-ifffiziiz-fggjffi-5ff' ,,:Yjg'-,gjg fp: f .-jlnfj ,Akai V Y, I . ! . . . ' . ' .V . - - .f I I 1 .1 1 p 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- field. 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. -Howard Gossage ggi Top Row: Lois Friedabach and Jean Blackburn seeming- ly intent on making their class on time. while Rex Morgan flashes past.

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 Student Body. After all the amendments were passed and the meeting was closed, Mr. Allan Paris eloquently re- marked that the student council could have passed any measure it could think up at that particular meet- ing. The entire student body seemed to be agree- ffm-- able and willing to vote ar' "fy ,'f,9yw ,if-' E' :',ffiff,gfp1f:,f': . 'f f 515' 1 A'3IffQ1,g!",1' lf? fffwijfi A if . . yes. Few students outside the f ., :fi -, actual council really know 'A af the amount and importance of the council work. Each Monday at 4:00 P. M. the twelve members and two faculty members meet and solve the problems that are under their jurisdiction. The most outstanding work of the Council for this year is the chartering of all the organizations on the campus. The Council held meetings with the Boards of Control of these organizations so that they might help them if possible. The Council also did much work in preparing for the Decker-Day Ball. Various committees s en t out announcements, decor- fa -. ated, prepared and served food, arranged for entertainment. and served on the reception committee. A slightly informal problem was settled when the Freshmen and Sophomore Enforcement Com- mittee differed on the mere matter of wearing Freshmen Caps. This argument was settled by de- creeing a Freshman-Sophomore Bag Race. This didn't settle much for they both still claim to have won. 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 the college in one piece on HoBo Day, May 6. The Council still has much of its work confronting it. Page Tliirfy-four WRU? Kill XYhile Mr. Glen Whitaker, president, is doing his 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 year with nothing left undone. The entire council wishes to express their thanks to Dr. Mahoney and Mrs. Clancey as faculty ad- visorsg to Mr. Don Krueger for his work on the honor-point systemg to Mr. Charles Povlovich for his work in revising the constitution, and to all those who have cheerfully cooperated with the Coun- cil in its work. The Student Council us- ually functions as a gov- erning body to the group that it represents. Previ- ously, the councils of the University have been more or less taken for granted and merely tolerated as figureheads. Elections were based on the personality and strength of a candi- date to carry a political ticket. The council of '38 sur- prised even itself with all its work. lt even began be- fore the term opened in PM the fall. It maintained a standard of in t e r e s t throughout the year, aid- Wii.t.fOll 'lilo ed by radicals Harry Mc- Donald, junior representa- tive, and Bill McDonell, s e n i o r representative, whose droll comments on H momentary problems kept the council from settling into a placid problein-solving machine. Perhaps the most important motion that was passed was that one to the effect that the Student Council meet on Saturday night at twelve o'clock in the jubilee Room. The motion passedg but came the night and XN'illard Wlarner was the only Coun- cil member who showed up. The Council always knew that Mr. NVarner was the most dependable member of them all. -fmzznzefte .S'pc'a-rs GLEN LEROY VVHI'l'AKERIHB0SS,' llf'l1ifakm', majrwing in His- tory and Pllllilliftll .Slt'l.f'1ll.'F, has been on tlir' Volker CEIIIIPIIS for four j'0lH'.S'.

" .f 1 f . 4 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- cil representatives. 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 tennis. 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 Needle." 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. -Doroflzy Carter Page T11z'1'fy-sewn 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- tives. 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 victory. 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, Foster. 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 Pugh 7'lzi1'fy-r'z'gI1f 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. -Dorothy Carter lnnninrjr' B' ' nr 4-1 X , Page Ifurty lwrx!

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: President-Lloyd Doolittle Vice-president-Charles Povlovich Secretary-NVill Mansfield Treasurer-jack Kinzy Student Council-jeanette Spears Harry McDonald 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 scholarship. 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 department. 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! -lVz'Ibur .Mansfield Page Forty-onc X4 Top Row: Helen Senter Jewell Ferguson Beverly Nixon Doris Jean Bramley Scfond Row: Thelma Monsees Mary Alice McKay Betty Macoubrie Ann Jedlieka T!zz'1'a' Row: Rita Keating Madge Johnson Mary Ellen Stewart Marjorie Heimhrook Page Forty-rizvo Kangaroo Quad Queen . . .

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 combination. 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 Plaza." Billy ,Reed and jane Martin can be seen around in his gray Ford sedan. Hal Mather's car is the tan convertible Chevrolet with the unreadable license, Swiss, if we remember right. Howard Speer, of geology fame rolls around in a very large Buick 8 sedan, while Allan Burr does equally as well with a LaSalle sedan. Marjorie Heimbrook is a peachy contrast with her silver gray Chevrolet coupe. John Bender and his green Ford sedan has had three accidents in a row, after having none for five years. Yvonne Foree rolls her blue 'Nash coupe into the parking lot every morning and Bob Johnson can be seen driving his car more than he is on the cam- pus. Faculty members often seen driving are Dr. Ny- quist with his Ford coupe, and Mr. McDermott with his blue convertible roadster, Dr. Sigley with a Chevrolet sedan, and a very fitting car to a person- ality, Dr. Decker with a streamlined DeSoto sedan.

They were the first to initiate the ballot box on election day. Can it be that Mary Ellen suspects ,lack of stuffing the box? Fashion Note: Notice the high-water pants that -lack's wearing. b l 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 to know. 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- pendent Party. 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- litllljl' ffliffj'-f'zi'0 ..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 to vote. 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 ballot counting. 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 Warner. 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. Fl U Q Q 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- ing off names and giving out ballots for part of the day. Standing in front of the table from left to right are: Lewis Baker, Harry Baker, Hiram Blomquist, Bill Campbell, 'Mike De- Feo, Bob McLaughlin, Charles Pov- lovich Chat and shoulder onlyl, Ann Etzenhouser and Johnny Redman. certain individuals out. They did no harm, but it was just the principle of the thing. As far as the election committee could tell, there was no electioneering going on inside the voting room. There were irregularities, of course, but nothing could be actually proven. 'fThere was not enough dirty work to swing the election one way or the other," said Harry McDon- ald. He should know-for he was in the voting room most of the time, and welll take his word for it.

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. O 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. O -. 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 Page Fifty-four lack of imagination and subtlety in the methods of cribbing used. 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. . ..1 This University is Your University One of our operators reports seeing Mr. Ted Chamberlain down at the Barstow School around recess time surrounded by a Covey of palpitating females.

Students please see Mr. Baker today" mean that another part of their tuition is checked off and that they have worked another month of their stay through the U. If it were not for the N. Y. A. scholarships and others, many students would not be able to attend the U. It is surprising what the difference of a few dollars makes. 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- Prnfe liiufiy-51'.v 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.

P Top Hatters to Have A New UNews Planned All-Star Cast for Fee Fie Faux Pas .... Reorganization Show to Be Put On Sometime Soon Gadzooks! That little bombshell of concentrated energy, Glenda Speechman, burst through the Tophatters' door the other day, bringing with her her radiant personality, sauve, syncopating voice and radiant personality. "Little tid-bit" as the Tophatters call her, is going to be one of the big numbers in the forthcoming Tophatter production, "Fee Fie Faux Foeey," Paul Millson, student production manager told ye scribe the other day. Other leads in the forthcom- ing production, are: Bill Muf- fe, Gody Lions, Ernest Beerl- in, Lil Lurch and others of the same high quality. Paull Milson told ye scribe the other day Mr. Millson is the student producer, he told ye scribe. Glenda, . aul Milson said, just returned from an ex- tended tour of non-credit courses at K. U., K. State and others. She will play the part of Foogey, an Eskimo girl lost in the South Sea Is- lands, having started to walk home from a sleigh ride, ac- cording to Paull. Tophatters are very glad to have Glenda among them, because, in addition to her radiant personality, she will make one more to add to the bunch that every day lunches at some of the better places in the Plaza. Paul Wilson said 400 let- ters have been sent out to people, who, although they don't know it yet, are going to buy two tickets apiece to the forthcoming production. Paul said he wrote the let- ters. Several members of the business staff gave indispens- ible aid to me in licking the stamps, Mr. Millson told ye scribe. Betty Thorpe, publicity managerv, reported to Mr. Wilsson that she was about to launch her campaign which W. said consisted of the fol- lowing: a poster in the ad.

SENIORS PICK RINGS The Seniors have picked their rings. The rings will be of a design using purple onyx, imitation white gold and red rubies of a glassy nature. The motion made at Senior meeting that instead of rings the Seniors should choose lockets to wear around their necks this year was overruled and discarded. The Senior President says, "We feel that these are distinc- tive rings which will make 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 forever. In this month's issue, as in others, the Kangaroo staff is doing its pitiful best to ape the style of "Esquire'i and the "New Yorker." Well, all we can say is that we don't think these two need worry about their circulation falling off because of the Kangaroo. Our campus magazine, of which we are so proud, con- tinues to thumb its nose at everyone and everything about the school, but it does- n't have a very pretty nose. Perhaps it has been deform- ed by trying to avoid the un- wholesome stink arising from its pages. "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. Pooey! 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.

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 schools. 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 Menn.

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.

The little man turned his head to look at ye scribe and said, "What ho, my good man?" 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 the campus and ex-editor of the UNEWS. "Is it true, Mr. McKibben, that you are planning to Write a novel?" "Yup, that's the dope, son. Anytime I have a week-end without anything to do I'm going to get started. I've got a couple buzzing around in my head right now." Ye scribe looked at the future famous novelist's head but could see nothing un- usual. "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 of American life and the eternal problems of man- kind." "Even your first novels, Mr. McKibben?" "Oh, I may toss off a few popular best-sellers to get a little dough ahead, but after that it's going to be art and nothing else." "I hear you already have 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 novels?" "Not for me, son, not for people like me. By the way, who's the dame in the green sweater?" 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.

Playing a fast game of combined Jacks and Mumble- ty Peg the Juniors narrowly won over the Seniors yester- day afternoon in the game held on the mats in the gym. Final score as it stood was Juniors 18 run, 0 hits, 12 errors, the Seniors 12 runs, Outstanding star of the game was Glen Stebbins who has made a name for him- self being forward. Leaping the cracks between the mats, Flash Stebbins crashed? in with final runs giving the game to the Juniors. At a crucial moment Coach Spaht sent in Ira Wilbur- force to rally the fading se- nior team. It was a success- ful maneauver, and if Flash Ira had been sent in earlier the Seniors felt they might have finished out on top. This was the third game in the round-robin match be- ing in inter-murals right now. The players in yesterday's game follows: Juniors Keller, f. .rrrrr 3 5 7 9 Satterlee, f --1O 2 4 0 Anderson, f ....

I A l A l WI 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 enough ll' 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 Page 5'i.rty-sewfz 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. -M ary Harbord O 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- lished. The staff is made up of those people who want to work on it and no work, no credit. Those who have contributed to the issues of the book are, Con- tributers, VVilbur Mansfield and Dorothy Carter. Art Editor, Paul VVillson, and Lorraine Stith. Class Editors, Jean Dunham, Lucille Southard, jane Mar- tin and Bill Dow. Organizations Editors, Betty Page Sixfy-eiglzt Boutell and Ann Jedlicka. The business staff in- cludes, lYillard NYarner, john Redman. Jeanette Spears and Roy Stout firmly believe that the yearbook will never return to its old formal style. O ,T, 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- partment. 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- erstine, and others.-iwary Harbord O .

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 editor's chair. 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 dailies. 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- ly. Three editions were published before the adminisl tration realized that Mr. Glenn was once more in office. The next day it announced that publication was suspended until the finances were straighten- ed out. This was to have been the major purpose of the reorganization. So once again the not much read but much in the red University News was bankrupt. Sighed vener- able four-year staff member Kenny Birkhead, "His- tory repeats itself."

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 Page .qC'UC11f3Y 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 popular band. 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 Cozzfilzzzed 011 page 85. Fl Nl 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 apparel. 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. Become Crearnjouffs 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 C07IfIil1llCfI1 011 page 85. Page Scvczzfj'-0110 W 1 1 i i i v I w 5 I F U. An Gzark Gal Visits K. C. U .... Dear Rebecca, 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- pus. 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- ing me. 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 C011lLIlI'LlCd 011 page 84.

Pam' SC'1'f'lIf-X'-fl1l'I'f' 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. Page Scwzzty-fain' I . 4 4 l l 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 success. 'WO MO Oil U0 FACULTY . . ROBERT D. NV.

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. QUAD 1. What is your opinion of the recent stu- dent election? 2. Do you think that the Student Council does any good on the campus? 3. Name' one thing you dislike about the school. 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 included. .lO T. 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- versity. 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 dorms. 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 life. . 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 athletic program. 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 Page Scticzzfy-iziize 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. ....i..O.l.1. 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 platform! 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 Page Eighty and I'm staying right here to watch it develop and to enjoy the freedom of attending college while liv- ing at home. KU, 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 Kansas City. 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.- T01 BY MUNSON Howiz, '38 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, however. 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! o BY JANE IXIARTIN, '39 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- C0llffllll0d O11 page 86. i. lvl 9 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 and style. 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 Do Next? . . . 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 seen yet. Almost every day, something new is shown, so we can't promise you that all these things will be in style when this article is published.

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. O 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 Page Eligl1fj"f'01!T 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." O An Czark Gal Visits IC. C. U. QC01rzz'i1med from page 73D 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 fl Q0 i l Q9 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- bo Day. 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. Your dear girl friend, Euphemia joggler Pish. O Tophatters . . . CCOllffl11lCd from paAge.7Oj 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. o Our Student are Creampuffs CC01lzz'1'1lzued from page 7lj 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 taken. 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.- lfl'z'Ibz11' llfdllifl-Cfd Prvgr' ffllfjllfj'-fluff' Questions of the Quaol . CC01Ifl.IlllCd from page 80D dents. VVithout it the democratic policy on which we pride ourselves would be lost. 3. My main objection is to the seeming lack of interest of the students with regard to the school activities. These activities cannot be successful with- out the wholehearted cooperation of all the stu- dents. . 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 more "umph',. 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. -Oi BY ARTHUR CHARVAT, '39 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. Page Eiylify-si.r 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 support. 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.- . o 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. DO YOU: 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 your friends? 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- I I -" 4 pq :lg I5il'i"?' K'5':'f"-p--.

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. CC0lIfZ'1IllClf 011 page l22j Page lvlillffj'-IPIIC' r e L.

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 and herself. The newly organized and youngest club on the U I QQ Calendar . 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.

New Faculty' Members 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 Latin. s 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 executive duties. 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. Page gvfllff-X'-llfllf' 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. Page One Hundred Dean Barfle 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. - 'P .

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 goes on. 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- rath. 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- cess. 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 the charm. 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.

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. Page OHL'A-H1llldI'8d-fI1iI'fL'C1l 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 of play. 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 third with 13.22 per game. The all-stars selected for ability and sportsmanship are: First Team Second Team Charles Satterlee Bob Anderson Bill Harder NYillard Warner jim Gant Hoyt Nelson Harold Myers Joe King Barney Rawlings XYill Mansfield 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 Hurst and Bob Anderson were consistently high scorers but their team failed to stand up well be- hind them. In Table Tennis Marvin Anderson again captur- ed the championship from a field of some fifty hopefuls. The strong men of the campus, after train- ing all year, finally held their contest. Ted Goodale found he had developed an unusual 'crop of weight- lifters who set a string of new records. The cham- pions are: Sam Thomas-148 lb. class. A Burr Commons-165 lb. class. Marvin Anderson-181 lb. class. Charles Young-Heavyweight. 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 Proteges of Dr. Kenneclys manly arty of boxing. 6. Q Q tl 3 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- tors. 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 First Team Byron Bell, p. George Charno, c. Bill Campbell, l b.

This year's competition has given everyone a chance to play, whether a star or not. lt has de- veloped good rivalry and true sportsmanship.

Right: Girls play tennis on our wonderful courts, too. Dorothy Dabbs, Beta Beta Delta, getting a tan. and the Sophomores and Seniors provided some close competition. Next year the tournaments promise to be better than ever. Dr. Kennedy and Al Spaeth have done a good job.

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 Ada ...........ee..see.. Morley johnson VVarren Creamer .L,..eL,e -Jim Rawlings 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, qC0lII'I.lIllC7lf 011 page l2Zj r , Kangaroo and Yearbook Staffs .

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 business manager. 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. o PRECAUTIONS FOR EXAMS Some students go to great extents To find a four-leafed clover, 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. Page Om' If iuldrm'-ffcfrli fx'-two We Three . . . CC07lfZ.lIZlGd from page Qlj 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- book possible. o Spring Calendar . . . fC0111'1'11zzca' from page 93D 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. it C 9 The 19-iewel Lady Elgins! s-f1ayE1ginC10Ckf0fh , fl 7 travel, or ojicc. 522mg - ld lSN'N'llf""',2gTlQ'?':a'awivf1i::.t,""-ima-"L -are .
