Take the ivy itself on the Geology-Physics buildings: Back in April, 1934-the first year of the University -Pro- fessor T. U.. Taylor, a friend' of Mr. E. E. Howard, Chairman of the University's Board of Trustees, presented the University with three kinds of ivy. This ivy had adorned the main building of the University of Texas for many years. This building was at that time being torn down. Professor Taylor sent the following notes on the ivy presented to the University: V ful. Ivy taken from the grave of Thomas Gray at Stokes Poges, England, replanted on the campus f of the University of Texas in the spring of 1884 2. Ivy from Kennilworth Hall, England, where the Duke of Leicester made love ,to Queen Eliza-N beth and where Amy Robsart met her untimely death. T KC "3.

Decker, presi- dent of the University. R .fdcfminidlfrafion The University- of Kansas City has made phenominal progress during its twelve years of functioning. From the mere beginnings of a faculty of eighteen and only a two year Liberal Arts course, it has expanded personnel, added new buildings, new facilities and a wider range of courses. The University is now divided into three schools: Liberal Arts, Law, and Dentistry. The Liberal Arts College, in turn, has four divisions: Arts, Langu- ages, and Literature, Biological Sciences, including the Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy: Mathe- matics and Physical Sciences, and Social Sciences. Dr. Clarence R. Decker, president of the Uni- versity, is the point around which the University revolves, and through which it is co-ordinated. Dr. Decker joined the faculty twelve years ago as Chairman of the -Department of English, Language and Literature. l-le has served as president since 1938. The young college president has the gift of wit and good humor that makes him popular with all. New to the campus this year is Dr. Robert Haun, Dean of Students. Dr. l-laun has been active in organizing the students' activities. Student leaders met at his home this spring to discuss campus affairs and they have had several other joint meetings with the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs. .Dr. Robert Mortvedt, Dean of-the Liberal Arts College, is indeed a busy man. In addition to his other duties he finds time to meet with the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs and to discuss campus problems. All applications for student aid are filed through Miss Nancy C. Uebelmesser. She also is a member of the Committee on Student Affairs, and she and Dean I-laun meet with the Student Council. Miss Uebelmesser's office is the scene of many "bull sessions" about student problems. Left: Dr. Robert R. I-Iaun, Dean of Students and Registrar. Below: Miss Nancy C.

Fleck, completed his portrayal of the seasons by painting two more murals, one of spring and the other -of summer. Mr. Fleck, began his series of seasonal murals last' year when he painted those of fall and winter on the walls of the third floor of the Liberal Arts building. Paintings by Mr. Fleck and Dr. Burnett Shryock were displayed by the Missouri Exhibition in the an Olifmfw y St. Louis Art Museum. Dr. Shryock also painted portraits of Mrs. Decker and of Helen Hayes, who posed while' she was in Kansas City for "Harriet" The music department presented Estelle Mallon in graduation recital, this spring. Miss Evaline Hartley and Coenraad V. Bos gave a joint recital. Mr. Bos will teach in the summer session. Miss Elizabeth Supplee became adviser for the student publications.

Dr. Hill was in Wash- ington and London with the O.S.S. Dr. Lynn I. Perrigo also returned to the faculty after a leave of absence during which he served with the Midwest Inter-American Center. Students are brought into close contact with mem- bers of the faculty through the Advisory system. Upon entering the University, each student is as- signed to an individual advisor with whom he dis- cusses curricular problems. He is then responsible to hfis advisor and to Dean Mortvedt. When he choses his field of concentration, he is switched to an advisor in that field. Dr. Lynn I.

Freshmen women were required to take a semes- ter of Body Mechanics and a semester of Pxhymthics. For the men in 'physical education, however, the Army-Navy Physical Education Program was aban- doned and the pre-war program of two weekly classes plus one extra for intramural sports was resumed.

L we 6,660 MIAAJAOIQ f The Radio Workshop of the University was started in the fall of 1944. Under the direction of Dr. Charles F. Hunter, assistant professor of Eng- lish Language and Literature and director of Radio, the Workshop included a course in the principles of radio. The radio students had ample opportunity to put into practice much of what they learned in class through the actual broadcasts the Workshop presented on local stations. The students wrote many of the scripts and were the source of talent. One ten-minute program, aired every Friday night, gave, in skit fonn, the latest campus news and gossip. It saluted special groups and organizations at the University, such as the returning veterans, the dental students and the University News. The scripts were written by committees from the class, aided by Dr. Hunter. Another series, presented the third Sunday of every month, was a fifteen-minute documentary salute to the various organizations of the Council of Social Agencies of Creater Kansas City. Several of those scripts were published and made available to social agencies throughout the country. The Workshop also ran a thirteen-week series, "The Kansas City Story," dramatizing the work of the various departments of our city government. Still other programs were done from time to time. During October, five shows were done for the War Chest campaign. In class, radio students made recordings of their voices and heard transcriptions of some of their broadcasts. They also practiced using the micro- phone, Wrote scripts, and aided in the production of some of the programs. All this was in addition to study of the general field of radio broadcasting. The Workshop is housed on the third floor of the Administration building. Besides an office, it includes a newly installed studio and control room. The large studio was built by well qualified acous- tical engineers with advice frorn an expert radio technician. It is equipped with fine microphones, monitoring equipment, and playback turntables. With ample funds to back it up, the Radio Workshop is planning increased expansion with the possibility of an PM station after the war. New courses will be added and new programs developed. I D ROY J. RINEHART, Dean of the School of Dentistry. ,7lLe 3400! of lZ5enfi5lfry p For the second consecutive year, the dental stu- dents from the Kansas City-Western Dental Col- lege have attended classes on the University campus, as well as at Tenth and Troost. The School of Dentistry is ably led V by Dr. Roy Rinehart. . Some of the students are in the Navy V-12 program, while others are civilians. All civilians must have at least two years- college work. The Navy has made it possible for dental students to continue their training while members of the mili- tary service. The training is carried on while the men are on active duty in uniform, receiving pay and under general military discipline. Up to Sep- tember, the Army also provided such a program, but at that time, the Army dissolved its unit and gave those men their choice of going into the regular Army, continuing the training as civilians, or dropping out and being drafted. The students are required to study on our cam- pus two semesters, studying dental technology, dental anatomy, gross anatomy, bacteriology, his- tology, and physiology. Classes are held on the ground floor of the Geology-Physics building and the Biology-Chemistry building. Upon the successful completion of eight sixteen- week semesters, the dental student receives his degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, and under the present military plan is commissioned Lieutenant Uunior GradeD in the Dental corps of the U. S. Naval reserve. g , ,, rl ' EDVVARD D. ELLISON, Acting Dean of the School of Law. ,748 s2i..,f,,f J.. The Kansas City School of Law, founded in 1885, merged with the University of Kansas City in 1938, becoming the School of Law of the Uni- versity of Kansas City, with classes and offices in the Administration and Law building. It has grad- uated nearly 3,000 students with the degree LL. B., which is conferred after the successful completion of six semesters of work. Due to the war, all classes this year have been held in the evening from six to ten o'clock. The enrollment this semester is 9 women and 43 men, including 7 honorably discharged veterans taking advantage of the C.I. Bill of Rights. The graduates of the School of Law are now established in nearly' every state in the Union, the District of Columbia, and our insular possessions. A considerable number of these graduates hold judicial positions as judges of state courts, including members of supreme courts of various states, and as judges of United States courts. Also, many are members of state legislatures and of the Congress. The legal training received in the School of Law enables the graduates to become outstanding citi- zens and leaders in business and industry. Because the law courses are taught only at night and many of the students work during the day, it was impossible to take a picture of the entire School of Law. - -Un..-.-.4.a..,t.-.ra '- ,..-is .

It has chapters in forty-six of the leading American law schools and thirty-one Alumni chapters in the larger American cities. The total membership of the fraternity is approximately 16,000. ln March, 1907, five students at the Kansas City School of Law were admitted to Phi Alpha Delta and the Benton chapter was chartered by the national organization. The chapter WaS flamed after Thomas Benton, famous United States sen- ator, lawyer, and judge of'iMissouri. The chapter charter was transferred to the University of Kansas City when the law school was absorbed by the University. There is also a Kansas City Alumni chapter with several hundred members. The official fraternity colors are old gold and purple, and the flower is the red carnation. The pledge pin is a keystone with the scales of justice super-imposed in gold upon a purple field. The badge is an oblong hexagonal shield of gold with concave sides displaying in vertical order a balance or scales of justice, and the Creek letters '15 A A.

She now has chapters' in every important Law school in the United States, with seven associates in foreign countries, and an illustrous alumnae. Psi chapter was welcomed into the Kansas City School of Law on May 2, 1925. Many members of Psi chapter have attained prominence in the legal profession both at home and elsewhere. There's Jennie Cochrum in Baltimore, Mabel Dil- lon Balboa in New York City, Jane Johnston in Los Angeles, lane Palmer in Washington, D. C., and Mary Louise Ramsay in Chicago. We are equally proud of the larger group here in Kansas City Who likewise are high in the profession. The friendships formed are true and the social pleasures are many, but these joys do not make us forget that the ultimate purpose of Phi Delta Delta is professional excellence and Psi chapter will ever strive to maintain this high standard. DR.pT. T. DITTRICH, Director of the School of Pharmacy. I we 5300! of pdarmacy The Kansas City College of Phannacy merged with the University of Kansas City in 1943 and since has conducted training under the competent supervision of Dr. Theodore Dittrich, in the modern Biology and Chemistry building. The pharmacy laboratories are the pharmacist's dream for desirable places of training. Each Cl6Sli is equipped with 65 of the commonly used pre- scription chemicals, 125 liquid galcniCalS, individual poison lockers, and a reference library. The com- plete desks and the spotless cleanliness of the equipment lends an atmosphere of professionalism. Upon those who successfully complete eight semesters of intensive work, which require about two years, the School of Pharmacy now confers the degree of Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy. Under the well-balanced curricular program, the phar- maceutical student pursues such courses as modern language, mathematics, economics, business man- agement, and jurisprudence in order to prepare the student not only for work in his profession, but also assist him to take his proper place in his community. I 1 1 ll we SAM! of Warming The University of Kansas City has offered a special curriculum of study for student nurses during the past several years, under the supervision of Miss Grace Frauens, chainnan of the Depart- ment of Nursing. This year students from Cen- eral, Research, and Trinity Lutheran hospitals have attended classes in the Biology and Chemistry building on our campus. The majority of the students are in the United States Cadet Nurse corps, which means the fed- eral government provides for their training as nurses for the armed forces, government and civilian hos- pitals, health agencies, and war industries, by Act of Congress passed in June, 1943, Q:fea,rcA .J41Q4,oifaf FIRST SEMESTER ANN ARD CAROLE FRANCES FOWLER VIRIGINIA LOUISE HARVEY ELIZABETH BANKS ELIZABETH GRIFFITH MARY ALBERTA HAWTHORNE JEAN KATHRYN BROVVN WINONA GRIFFITH VIRGINIA RODENBERG MARY LOU ESCHENBRENNER MARY ELLA HANLON VIRGINIA TAPP ,S fib- L! g23f1eeSWhX2iugiCE?i'in?0Eg:ZPPISHI Ere: Ehirley Kathryn Boley, Mary Louise Dake, Barbara Daley Barbara Lee , , ty oo er, etty Lee Kl k, E ' L , L '11 ' rlijeify .lean Mallaf, Anna Margaret Parker, Jean A.

One semester of intense study is spent on our campus, which includes anatomy, physiol- ogy, chemistry, bacteriology, nutrition, and physical education. Nursing arts, professional adjustment, and drug and solutions are studied at the respective hospitals. The student nurses .like our campus. The majority of them are from outstate. There are more from small towns than from the city. Some of the states represented are Arkansas, Mis- souri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Wash- ington.

Cast in 1876 in the little village of Cincinnati, Virginia, it sounded signals for many years on the ferry boat "Warsaw," which plied the waters of the Mississippi below Quincy, 1l1inois. Later it became the "watch bell" of a Cumberland river boat, the "lo Horton Fallf, When the "Io Horton,13all" was renamed the i'Val1ey Queenv and transferred to the' Missouri, this same bell "told" the hours for excursionists up and downrour own river. 1n 1933 the "Valley Queen" struck a snag at Cmaha and sank. Salvaged from the river's muddy bed, the bell resumed its travels on the towboat "1-1. P. Treadwayf' which still operates on the Missouri out of Kansas City. ln 1937 Captain Probert lngersoll Gilliam was at long last persuaded, after many mis- givings, to give the bell, then in its sixty-third year, to the Uni- versity. Captain Cilliam was much attached to the bell and it was only after he was finally convinced that the belliwould have a useful and permanent home that he was induced to part with it. The pond, too, has become a tradition. First formed, we are told, out of a quarry from which rock was taken to build part of the Administration Building, the pond was later filled with water. 1n addition to its scenic interest, it is used by Professor Stone for his algae supply, by students for their annual tug-of-war, by neigh- borhood boys for fishing, catching crawdads, and, we have heard, for the "lover and his lass" in the springtime, "the only golden ring time."

It was held in October in the gym with Bill Trumbaur furnish- ing the music. A few weeks later the Council cooperated with the Administration in giving an All-School bar- becue. In spite of war-time shortages, enough food was secured and the barbecue was served on the campus between the Chemistry-Biology building and Fifty-first street. All the corn and talent of KCU was discovered for a talent program later. Community singing around a large bonfire ended the evening. Students have been watching the rapid trans- formations taking place in the old greenhouse all semester. Finally in December the new student rec-room opened, complete with a snack bar. Bridge and dancing to a juke box purchased by the Council were permitted. In a Council sponsored contest, the rec-room became officially the "Kangaroost". As a last gesture, the expiring Council ended its series of "mixers" with a "post-final fling" in the Browsing room. The new Council took seat the second semester without opposition. The long-advocated amend- ments to the All-Student constitution were at last passed - making it easier to pass amendments, and requiring the president and secretary of the Student Council to be full time students on the main campus. Mike Denney was appointed chairman of Hobo Day, and plans were made for Hobo Day on April 27, with the song contests and the Kangaroo hop in the evening. SENIOR OFFICERS Marv Lou Cunningham, president, Lyn Weatherbie, vice-president, Beverly Gott, secretary, and Dorothy Wise, lII'CaSl.lICl'. i Well, we made it. It seems like only last week that we were foolish little freshmen worrying about getting to class on time and other such inconsequential matters. And then suddenly we were sophomores, and we had our chance to get back at the new freshmen for the terrible indignities of freshmen rules. By the time we had become juniors, the war, declared when we were Frosh, had definitely stepped in and changed our lives along with every one else's. The boys were leaving practically every day, and those who were still here could never be sure for how long. However, some of the dental students moved to the campus and things became a little brighter for the lonesome gals left at home. Now, at last, we are seniors, leaving school to make our marks in the world. We feel we are equal to the task if our past performance means anything about our future. Many of us have made very good records for ourselves here at K.C.U. There is Mary Lou Cunningham who has been on the campus only two years, and yet managed to eniom be president of the senior class, editor of the U-News, and a member of Cap and Gown. For vice-president, we have Lyn Weatherbie who also has been here for only two years. She was treasurer of our junior class, too. Secretary of our class this year is Beverly Gott who has held offices in Cho Chin and the mathematics club, is president of Easy Chair, and a member of many other organiza- tions. Another one of our seniors of whom we are especially proud is Marilynn Williams. She has been president of the Student Council, editor of the U-News and of the Kangaroo, a member of Cap and Gown, Whois Who, and a participant in almost all of the U-Players productions. We have done our share of griping about rules and regulations, but when we look back, things were never as bad as we thought at the time. ln fact, we're going to miss those rules, and the pro- fessors and the administration who helped enforce them. We'll also miss the friends we have made here. All we can say to them is good-bye and thanks for four grand years. Pri dei Lit ure un Ei M4 Ea Clw S4 5.

We've passed through the Prosh year of amazement and yearning to be an upperclassman, the know-it-all attitude of the so- phomores, and we haven't reached the senior year with its trials of comprehensives and the appre- hension of serious life after graduation. Q Though the quantity of the junior class has de- creased this year due to Uncle Sam's call of duty to foreign fronts, certainly the quality remains as fine as ever, and the junior class members have taken an active part in departmental clubs and campus activities. This year's junior class was ably led by Jeanne Wagner as president. Helen Romer was vice- president, Betsy Moody was secretary, later re- placed by Gloria Van Allsburg, and Bill Petting was elected treasurer. Ruthann Beyer was vice-president and president, Maynard Pappenfort, junior representative and vice-president, Dolores Tiefel was junior represent- ative and treasurer, and Ruth Riggs and Marianne Dorizzi were junior representatives of the Student Council. Maynard Pappenfort and Jeanne Wagner held the office of business manager of the U-News for their respective semesters. Other juniors on the U-News staff were Dolores Tiefel, feature editorg Mike Denney, news editor and head of the U-News Board of Control, and Bill Petting, sports editor. Buthann Beyer is also a member of the.Board of Control. Jeanne Wagner was junior editor of the Kanga- roo while Buth Biggs, Helen Romer, and Bill Petting were members of the Kangaroo Board of Control. J Marianne Dorizzi was president of the Pan- Hellenic Council, Ruthann Beyer was treasurer and secretary, Martha Pitzmaurice was treasurer, and Jeanne Wagner and Gloria Van Allsburg were representatives. Holding sorority and fraternity offices were Gloria Van Allsburg, president of Chiko, Dolores Tiefel, secretary of Chikog Marianne Dorizzi, pres- ident of Cho Ching Jeanne Wagner, president of Sigma Beta, and Joan Kaufmann, rush captain of Sigma Beta. Mike Denney and Bill Petting were presidents of Bounders. The A.P.O. service fraternity was reorganized last fall by Larry Jaben, having become inactive for the first time in its history on the campus in May of '44. Departmental club offices are held by Buthann Beyer, secretary of the International Relations Club, Alma Lee Broud, president of Prench Club, Mike Denney, treasurer of the Kangarocks, Jeannette Kaufmann, treasurer of Newman Club and secretary-treasurer of Asturias, Joan Kaufmann, vice-president of Spanish Club, Ruth Nugent, pres- ident of Newman. Club, Maynard Pappenfort and Bill Petting, presidents of Kangarocksg Jeanne Wagner, vice-president of the Art Club, and Dolores Tiefel, secretary of Sigma Pi Alpha. The members of the Class of '46 are looking for- ward to their senior year and are leaving to the history of the junior class an eventful and suc- cessful record.

Of course these "old" hands at the game couldn't have acted like these "'kids" one long year ago. They, however, lost their boredom during Freshman Week, came out of the cafeteria for a change, and threw everyone unpro- tected into the pond. This year's sophomore class, in spite of boredom, continued to add honors to those obtained during its freshman year. The oldsters welcomed the new students and were very congenial-until the so- rorities and fraternities gave bids. Twelve weeks of pledging is the one thing a sophomore remembers with the joyful thought that the next sophomore class will be equally impressed. The first big event of the year was sophomore class election. Bob Taylor, who was the most active freshman last year, again led his class as president. Beverly Smith replaced Ieanne Iones as vice- president. liois Nelson was secretary, and Ann Reisner was treasurer. The class was represented on the Student Council by Maxine Mayes and Bud Bryant. Betty Weiser served as treasurer and then secretary of the Council. -281 Student campus activities have been actively engaged in by sophomores. They hold many posi- tions on the staffs of the U-News and Kangaroo, and have many officers of sororities, fraternities, and departmental clubs. Pat Dundey is president of the International Relations Club, while Arliene O'Dell leads the 'Music Club and University Players. Betty Weiser is vice-president of the Pan- Hellenic Council. The second-year students have whole-heartedly participated in dramatics and sports. -They have appeared in a number of U-Players productions. Don Coplin and Pat Osborne have satisfied the actor shortage splendidly. Don, Pat and Arliene C'Dell appear practically every Friday on the Uni- versity of Kansas City Radio show on KCKN. All-in-all, the sophomore class has had a very successful year. It is true, some of our class have left for the armed forces and jobs in essential in- dustries, but the rest of us will keep on plodding through college until we graduate with the wisdom only seniors can have. We'll never forget, however, our old pals who have left, nor the friends we've made this "boring" sophomore year of college. DAV D4 ILE! GQ DCE Fi BAA I L hd! ..4"' I IO 4 x 1....'--"V r - " ... .

Even though our country is still at war, and more and more young men are being called to the colors, the freshman enrollment was larger than ever. A number of discharged service men were also among those enrolled. The Frosh started the year in the limelight as usual. What with Freshman Week, fraternity and sorority rush parties, and friendly campus get- togethers, the self-conscious freshman found that he or she was getting quite a bit of attention. They realized that they were the new blood of the Uni- versity -the upperclassmen of tomorrow. The newness of the University soon wore off, though, and in the background of our mounting victories in the Euro wean and Pacific theatres of I war, the frosh settled down to hard work, looking ahead to the peace that will eventually come. P655 VVLQVL ' The freshman class was well represented by George Sullivan, honorably discharged Navy vet- eran, as presidentg Barbara Haynes was vice-presi- dent, replaced by Martha Goleman later, Gladys Miller was secretary, and Alice Schmall was treasurer. Freshmen representatives to the Student Gouncil were Eva Ableson and Shirley Goughlin, first semester, and Margaret Ryan and Shirley Goughlin, second semester. We are proud to list here the names of men of the freshman class who have left for duty in thc service of our country. They are Glaude Horning, Kenneth Baldwin, and jay Smith. These men were not just freshmen, they were our friends. May they return soon to the University of Kansas City. We've had a swell time this first year of college with play and work, too. We are looking forward to the next Freshman Week -when we have the upper hand. ' A ' """'-'frfwmw-1-:Lu1-.-.-,fp-,. 1 - , . - - ' :.

The story has it that rnost of the Seniors thought they were giving a drinking fountain when, lo and behold, they returned later to find what is officially called "the three gracesy' and what campus Wags call the "nude niftiesf, It has proved a delight to the undergraduate and something of a problem to the Dean. Campus Puritans each year drape the Ugracesl' in modest attire, little boys sail their boats on its calm surface, little girls Csome in collegel go wading-all of which is on the Deanls forbidden list. The gold fish and the Chinese lilies find a pleasant home, in its waters, and students, lolling under the nearby maples, find it a delightful place to study - and loaf. The sculpture was done by Wallace Rosenbauer, Director of the Kansas City Art Institute. A Back row: Marian Duncan, Dorothy VVise, Maynard Pappenfort, Delores Tiefel, Mari- lynn Williams.

Z8 .j65LlfLg6Ll"00 Say Well, we've finally gotten to the last page we have to write for this book, and it is with a sigh of relief that we sit down to say "thank you" to all those of you who have contributed to the Kangaroo this year. A whole carload of white orchids to Jean Messick who kept after us to see that the book came out in the black instead of the red, and to her adver- tising manager, Maxine Mayes, who also worried with us about finances. To our two assistant editors, Betty Weiser and Gloria Van Allsburg, another carload of choice white orchids. They turned out to be not only efficient worriers, but. hard workers, too. And to Maynard Pappenfort, Jeanne Logan and Virginia Westfall a carton of cigarettes Cwish this were truell, at least, for their efforts! Maynard ended up being everybody's right hand man. Jeanne strug- gled valiantly all year with priorities, and string pulling to get most of the pictures that we used. Virginia took over the senior section and had all her copy typed and in on time. A And to Bud Wooden and Bosco Blando go our heartfelt thanks for getting us out of an awful mess. Both of them worked all day one Sunday to finish the pictures of Hobo Day that are on our final pages. Thanks to Bud, we were able to retake many pictures that had been ruined by a broken camera, and to include many more.. And to our other contributors Barbara Thelen, Joyce Miller, Beverly Bowers, Wendell Johnson Call the division pages are his handiworkl, Ann Fuller, Bill Sutherland and Mike Denney, thank you! So here it is, the 1945 Kangaroo, finally off the presses due to a combined effort over a period of eight months, and in spite of shortages, priorities, and non-existent necessities. - LYNN.

Membership elections are based upon scholarship, musicianship, character and personality, with faculty recommendation in the major subject. Initiations may'take place from the sophomore through the graduate classes. This chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon was installed at the University the latter part of April. Charter members include: Opal Foster, Betty Funk, Margaret Custavson, Rosemary Creife, Lila Knox, Maree Murlin, Della Willson. I K 1 The Art Club of the University of Kansas City was organized in the spring of 1944 under the leadership of Dr. Robert Hubbard, director of the Art department at that time. A charter was drawn up by a group of art enthusiasts under the first president, Carolyn Leininger. Dr. Shryock's enthusiasm as new chairman of the Art department stimulated the opening of the Little Callery on March fourth. Most of the exhibit pictures are for sale and a commission is charged for handling. The proceeds go to the Art Club, establishing a fund from which other ex- hibitions can be brought to the campus. Another accomplishment of the Art Club is the two murals in the Kangaroost, painted by Andy Saffas with the assistance of Bob Bailey.

Painted in 1941 by the famous Spanish artist, Luis, Quintanilla, there is still considerable controversy as to whether they are really art! But all are agreed that they do provide a colorful, if startling, lobby for the second floor. of the Liberal Arts building. Students of those days will never forget the headaches enjoyed by all during the days Quintanilla was here as artist-in-residence. Speak- ing little English, as temperamental as artists in the cartoon strips are alleged to be, Quintanilla had the entire University in a state of high tension. But the expected explosion never came off, and the project was brought to a successful conclusion. The murals are painted in true fresco, after the manner of Giotto. Students watched with interest as the walls were strengthened with concrete eighteen inches thick and then plastered over with three thin layers of especially prepared' fresco. Quintanilla used as models members of the faculty, student body, and staff. See if you can identify some of them: President and Mrs. Decker, Professors Cappon, Buschman, Perrigo, Wallace Brown, Ekblaw, Stone, Crain, etc. In the third floor lobby of the Liberal Arts building are two murals by joseph A. Fleck, artist-in-residence. Painted last year, they represent scenes from college life. The one to the north is called "Indian Summern and the one to the south "Winter on the Campusf, The figures were drawn from students, many of whom are still here. We'1l leave it to you to identify them. Then there is the triangle at the north end of the campus where the annual bonfire is held. The Freshmen gather the wood and guard it over night. 1t has been burned by "outsiders" on several occasions and near riots have ensued. Until 'the war, each new Freshman class attempted to build a bigger pile than the one of the preceding year. At midnight, as the flames rise into the sky, the hoboes snake dance, sing, and argue through the hours of night and early morning-and are properly chaperoned by the Dean and faculty, and the Kansas City Police and Fire Departments. These are a few of the traditions. New ones are born every minute. What will come, we wonder, from the year of our Lord 1945? Y' I First Semester.

Miss Nancy Ueblemesser serves in an advisory capacity to the Council. The prime function of the council is to direct the related activities of the sororities which will be advantageous to their common interests. The council has jurisdiction over all sorority activity. The officers are rotated among the sororities represented. For the first semester Helen Kilmer, Chiko, served as president, Beverly Cott, Cho Chin, vice-president, ,lean Messick, Beta Zeta, secretary, Buthann Beyer, Sigma Beta, treasurer. This fall the Pan-Hellenic Council closed the summer rushing period with the traditional Pan- !! n ef enic oomci Hellenic tea in the Browsing room on September seventeenth for entering women students. On Thanksgiving eve, Pan-Hellenic in cooperation with the Inter-Fraternity Council sponsored the annual Turkey Hop, giving it in the name of Alpha Phi Omega. Officers for the second semester are: Marianne Dorrizi, Cho Chin, president, Betty Weiser, Beta Zeta, vice-president, Ruthann Beyer, Sigma Beta, secretary, Martha Fitzmaurice, Chiko, treasurer. Since there were only two active fraternities on the campus this year, the lnter-Fraternity Council consisted of the two Presidents. They met with Miss Uehelmesser whenever any difficulties arose. They set up the rules of rushing, and joined with Pan-Hel in giving the Turkey Hop.

The pledges, in turn, gave a party in honor of the members at the Young Kansas Citian Club. The theme was that of a carnival, and it was a party to be long remembered. On December l, Mrs. Clarence R. Decker, ad- visor, gave a dinner at her home for the girls. This event was followed by a Mothers' Tea, held De- cember 3, in the Browsing room. Christmas vacation was climaxed by the annual holiday dinner dance in the Windsor room of the Hotel Phillips. Plans for the spring social season include a reunion with the sorority's numerous alumnae, and also the annual spring formal to be held in May.

After a successful season of rushing, ten girls were pledged at the beginning of the fall term. They elected Ruth Biggs president of their pledge class. Five more girls were pledged at the six-weeks. Social activities have included a formal tea, buffet suppers, a bowling party, and a dinner given for members by the pledges. The Christmas dance was held in a pine-decked Browsing room with Dutch l-lolland's band furnishing the music. A Mother-Daughter tea, a spring dance, and picnics concluded spring activities. Chikos have been active in campus affairs. Helen Kilmer and Dolores Tiefel were elected to VVho's Who. Special honors go to Helen Kilmer who was also secretary and senior representative of the Stu- dent Council, president of the Pan-Hellenic Coun- cil, president of Paoic, and a member of Cap and Cown, as is Lyn Weatherbie.

V irginia Peck Again one of the leading sororities on the campus this year, both scholastically and socially, Cho Chin has carried on her high traditions through eleven years at the University. Bushing was concluded with a dinner in the Trianon Boom at Hotel Muehlebach. Sixteen girls, who pledged at Beverly Cott's home, chose Laurette Lamme as their pledge president. The new pledges had their first taste of University social life November 3rd when Cho Chin held Open House in the Browsing room. The second big event of the year, the annual Christmas dance, found the Cho Chins dining and dancing to the music of Bill Trambaur's orchestra in the newly decorated pink dining room at the Hotel Brookside. Because Cho Chinls colors are pink and silver, the setting was perfect, to say nothing of the dance. Each year, since 1941, the girl with the highest grade average in the pledge class has been awarded a jeweled Cho Chin pin, this year the honor going to Louise Haines. Last year a Cho Chin reigned as beauty queen at the Kangaroo Hop and the song contest was also won by Cho Chin. Not only has Cho Chin been active in social affairs but also in scholastic and leadership activities. Mary Lou Cunningham and Beverly Gott, members of Who's Who and Cap and Cown, honorary senior women's society, served as president and secretary of the senior class respectively. Marianne Dorrizi, presi- dent of the Pan-Hellenic Council, was president of the sophomore class. Other positions held by Cho Chins were president of Easy Chair, representative on the Light Opera Board of Control, and treasurer of Student Council.

With the traditional Bentonian prayer, this fra- ternity began its ninth year of organization glori- ously. Throughout the year the fraternit made great strides unhampered by the war. Poiitically, athletically, and scholastically, Bentonian has suc- ceeded most admirably. The first semester had Bill Sutherland as presi- dent, Dean Storey as vice-president, and Kenny Baldwin as secretary-treasurer. First semester social activities were numerous with such functions as hay rides, picnics, stag parties, the New Year's,eve party, and the annual winter dance. The Bents won the mythical basketball championship of KCU under the able leaders: Sutherland, Baldwin, Storey and Wooden. Bentonian pledged the following men the first semester: Claude Horning, Lloyd McPherson, Clif Parrish, Andy Saffas, lay Smith, and Don Watson. Since last semester Kenny Baldwin, Claude Hom- ing and Jay Smith have entered the armed forces. Bill Sutherland and Dean Storey are at present working to aid the war effort while Bud Wooden and Dale Ewing are in dental school. The second semester officers that were elected are: Bob Bailey as president, Clif Parrish as secre- tary, and Lloyd McPherson as treasurer. There was no rushing the second semester, although the activities carried on as usual. "ln later life regardless of the miles apart Bentonian will always be in our heart."

The found- ers of the Kangaroo, Howard Gossage and Alan Paris, were among' the charter members who estab- lished. the precedent of leading socially, politically, and' scholastically which the members still follow. Although activities are limited, the Bounders are proud that theirs is the only fraternity that has not been forced to become inactive since the war. It is at present the largest fraternity. The returning members began the year with a hayride followed by a .barbecue and a dance for the rushees. Besides picnics and stag poker-busts, a stag dinner and formal initiation was held at the Plaza Royale. The Christmas dinner dance was at the Hotel Muehlebach. Bounders was the only fraternity with represent- atives to the Student Council, on Who's Who, and with class offices this year. Some of the activities of members were associate and freshman editors and member of the Board of Control of the Kan- garoo, business manager, advertising manager, news and sports editors, and chairman of the Board of Control of the U-News, vice-president, junior and sophomore representatives to the Student Council, presidents of the freshman and sophomore classes, and treasurer of the junior class, president of Delta X and two presidents of Kangarocks, chairman of Hobo Day, U-Player's Board of Control, U-Player productions, Light Opera association, and intra- mural sports. Members are scattered all over the world serving their country. Among the present active members are several veterans and many awaiting call. Bill Petting was in the Navy Air corps, Pat Osborne, the Army Air corps, George Sullivan was in the Navy, and Larry Ballentine, the Army. Pete Purdy and Dick Reinhard joined the Navy this year, and Bob Taylor and Don Merrill are awaiting call into the Army Air corps.

Dr. Bruce Trimble This organization, composed of veterans of World War II who have served a period of at least ninety days in their respective services, was acti- vated February 22, 1945. The preamble of the charter reads: "We who have served in the armed forces of the United States of America, and who have been honorably discharged from service organize to dedicate our- selves to the great task remaining before us - 'that from our honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave their last full measure of devotion, that we are highly resolved that our dead comrades shall not have died in vainfi Active as a laison between the veteran, the Uni- verstiy, and interested government agencies, the organization was founded for the purpose of aiding in the rehabilitation of the veteran returning to finish or begin his college education. To help the veteran re-establish himself in civilian life, the association also provided social contacts, employ- ment, and housing. The veterans established themselves on the cam- pus through their promotion of such projects as the Alpha Phi Omega Red Cross drive, the 7th War Loan student talent show, the Eagles Nest, a weekly column in the U-News written about and by the veterans, and a conference of veterans, or- ganizations from universities and colleges in Kansas and Missouri to discuss and centralize problems that confront veterans on their return to univer- sity life. i i I 5 Y x Z E l 2 2 E ng tO he he ny- m- as 'th , a nd or- sas ITIS 'Cf' jA8 wfefdnd 05204 af C6'Ll'l'Ll9lflff5 "lt's a pleasure to be a student at the University of Kansas City. Life is full, interesting and not too hurried. The campus is beautiful, the profes- sors helpful and understandingg in fact, almost everything about the University contributes to the student's joy of living." Sound like a paid testimonial? Or a sorority girl of sixteen gushing on a spring day when all is right between herself and her boy friend? It's neither, the statement was made by an ex-service- man, who by all outward appearances would im- press you as being anything but a softie. The majority of the veterans on the campus concur in this opinion although we might not express it in such flowery terminology. We like it here, and why shouldn't we? Oh, we have our gripes and sore spots, and sometime to listen' to one of our bull sessions you would think we wanted to re- make the entire campus program. The person who takes that sort of thing seriously is making a grave mistake. ,In the service, griping is considered a normal outlet for peeves and dissatisfactions, and it is only natural that the habit will linger on into civilian life with a great many Glfs. Sometimes we veterans may seem a little dis- dainful of extracurricular activities. We're not really. It's just that the scene that greets us on the campus is so often incongruous with the life we have been living. Our service experience has been built around serious issues, it lacked a great deal of the froth that adds to life's enjoyment. Sometimes we think of buddies still in the thick of it and almost resent the fact some people have escaped or seem untouched by the war. At first we may not be able to understand the importance attached to who is to be Red Cross Queen, or which combine is going to win the current campus election, but give us time, most of us want to really fit into University life. We're sometimes just a little unsure of ourselves to begin with, and some of us are over-serious or have almost com- pletely forgotten how to relax and play. Sometimes people get the idea that we think we are a little better than the other students. We don't. On the other hand we do think we are equal to anyone. We heard a great deal of talk about democracy in the service and many of us came out firm believers in it. Not only in theory, but in the practical application to everyday life. Most of us do bitterly resent snobbery in any form and are merciless in retaliation when we encounter it. Occasionally you may encounter a veteran with a superior, condescending attitude, we wont say that there aren't a few like that. When we, of the Order of the Golden Eagle, hear of a veteran who is behaving in this manner, we look him up and have a talk with him. Sometimes his attitude is justified. He may have encountered, during his first few days in school, one of the half dozen or so students who look upon the. veterans as inter- lopers upon their own little sacred preserve, or the veteran may be suffering a reaction from his ex- tended service. ln any event we do our best to straighten him out. Friendliness and understand- ing go a long way. A S We have tcussed and discussed the administra- tion plenty. Some of the academic requirements and restrictions seemed foolish to us, but when we think it all over we can realize that most of them are a result of a sound policy and, while they might not always be to our absolute liking, there is gen- erally a pretty good reason behind them. The ad- ministration has been good to us in many ways. They have taken into consideration our service records and admitted several of us on special status. They have shown understanding and considera- tion where physical disabilities prevented the dis- abled veteran's following to the letter attendance or preparation requirements. The instructors have al- most toua man gone out of their way to make us feel at ease and to help us help ourselves over the rough spots. t , - There isnothing mysterious about us, actually. You know we are normal, everyday guys who de- cided -that we had to have a hand in the war, or who couldn't outrun our draft boards. All of us didn't volunteer and not all of us believe in this war. Some of us feel thatcompulsory military serv- ice is un-American, -and un-democratic, others of us believe that only by keeping America strong, can we keep ourselves secure. We all agree that war is hell and are firmly resolved there will never be another one if we can prevent Most of us are darned glad to be out of uniform and back in civilian life. The few who aren't are generally conscientious guys who feel like they didn't do all they should because they didn't see foreign service. Among ourselves we hold no barriers because' of this. We realize that where a man goes in the service from the day of his induction to tlielday of his discharge is not a matter of choice but a matter of orders. Yes, we really like it here, we enjoy all of the beauty of the campus. We love the beautiful women and we have found hosts of good friends among the faculty and the student body. For our money, KCU is the TOP. Ax f X ai ,K RUTHANN BEYER ruled as Queen of the traditional Kangaroo Hop this year. She was chosen by the four judges who voted once from pictures and once from personal appearance, making eight ballots cast. The judges were Joanne Taylor, fashion co-ordinator for John Taylorg Nell Snead, woman's page editor of the Kansas City Starg Landon Laird, columnist of the Kansas City Star, and Wallace Rosenbauer, sculptor and artist at the Art Institute. Ruthann has often been referred to as "the most typical KCU girl" by her classmates. President of the Student Council and ex-editor of the Uni- versity News, Ruthann and her blond streak are an essential part of KCU. Whether she's in her jeans and sweat shirt or wearing her sexiest date dress, Ruthann is still queen of the campus. She is a junior and a Sigma Beta. Dr. Raymond Stone, voted the campus' most fascinating man, escorted Ruthann to the Coronation. JK an yahoo ueelz Jdffmlanfa ANN FULLER, blond freshman Sigma Beta ran a close second. This tall lovely adds a touch of sophistication wherever she goes. She was escorted hy "fascinating" Dr. Wal- lace Brown. MARY FRANCES S C OV I LL E, inde- pendent, placed third. Her quiet charm and quick witehave won her many friends. Art Dugoni placed third in the "fascinating man" contest to escort Mary Fran down the flower- decked stairway. f W .

Mike Denney was appointed head of the Hobo Day Committee by the Student Council and did a grand job of planning. The Kangaroo staff took over the responsibility for the Kangaroo Hop, held once again in the Browsing Boom. Students danced to music by Harry Kaufmann's "Aristocrats." Mike Denney and his helpers gathered enough wood for a roaring bonfire, and the Student Council served weiners and cokes on the eve of Hobo Day. i Eleven a. m. saw the "hobos" gathered in front of the library waiting for Dr. Decker's proclama- tion.. Skits followed, the U-Players' and the Vets' skit of a take-off on a faculty meeting being one of the best. Maynard Pappenfort took a bubble bath and crooned for us as a result of losing in the Truth and Consequences game. Lynn Williams and Lois Scott were crowned King and Queen of the I-loboes. Lynn wore a Vigaro sack for a dress, with' her feet tied in gunny sacks. Lois came ,as the traditional Hobo. ln the afternoon the students defeated the faculty in the annual baseball game. Because of the drizzling rain in the evening the song contest wasiheld in 117 L. A. The Chikos carried off first place and Beta Zeta second. Helen 'Kilmer led the winning Chikos who sang "Whisper- ing" and a sorority song to "Ramona" Arliene O,Dell led the Beta Zetas, who sang "Remember the Night," and a sorority song. All in all, from the bonfire at 9:00 p. m. on Thursday evening, till curfew at twelve, after the Kangaroo Hop on Friday night, it was a wonderful Hobo Day! 1 -54e- -1 Liv X YI in EDITORS OF THE KANGAROO HAVE never been given to indulging ,in the garden variety of heavy-handed editorial. The we-point-with- pride or the we-view-with-alarm style of writing does not seem to suit Kangaroo Eds. But this year has seen atleast one addition to the Quad that should be spoken of with a little editorial pride to temper the undergraduate glee. And that addition is, of course, the Kangaroost, the remodeled greenhouse that is serving as a student union building. Early in the first semester, Dr. Decker began showing ,off theiblue prints at the drop of a hat. The Student Council members nudged each other and whispered, "Do you suppose we'll really get to play bridge there?" A few students who couldn't wait to see the inside found that they had brought a good bit of bright blue or yellow paint out with them on their clothes. Then the first of December, the Kangaroost was open for business. It has stayed open for business Cand' business is goodD every day from I p.m. till 5:30 p.m. and on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings from 6:30 till about 9:30 p.m. Students play bridge, drink cokes, eat ice cream or hot dogs whenever the Kangaroost is open. They even dance to the juke box Cwhen the Student Council has it in running orderD. And once in a while, they stand in line for the popular brand cigarettes the machine boasts. Mr. Chuck Weggener first opened the Kanga- roost. Then when he left for Florida, where he was manager of a resort hotel, Mrs. Mary Ruth Streck, better known as "Rusty", took over. The greenhouse was christened "Kangaroost" as a result of a contest. Mrs. Childers, Dean Mortvedt's secretary, submitted the winning name. The very nice lady then made a gift of her five dollars prize money to the students. The Council spent the money on records that were broken Cas how many weren'tPD in trying to fix the nickel- odeon. The art students hustled around and finally painted murals. Andy Saffas designed them and managed the job. The bookstore moved into the other half of the greenhouse the first of January. I EflfU9ZlfL fA8 E810 MIKE DENNY WENT TO BED WITH the flu and discovered that at last he had time to turn out a feature for the U-News. The same article was used in one of the KCU campus news broadcasts over KCKN, and we decided to reprint it here. I G 0 "The news that Capt. Glenn Miller is missing, which appeared in the papers around Christmas, may mean little to some people, in view of the thousands of men alread missing, but to many of us who are now coflege undergraduates, or to those who would have been had there not been a war, this news delivers an almost final blow. Glenn Miller was the sign of a time, of a great era, in our lives. Several years ago, before the war, Glenn Miller's band was a real influence. He was to us what Sinatra is to the high school bobby socksers of today. Glenn Miller, Ray Eberle, Tex Beneke, the Pied Pipers, made the sweet music that we danced to in past years . . . we crowded the Auditorium when Miller appeared, saw his pictures, "Sun Valley Serenadel' and "Orchestra Wives," several times, and, yes, swooned to the mellow music of his trom- bone over the radio and juke boxes in our favorite little joints. You see, we remember him as the art of a peace- time world, of little Model A's with yellow fenders and blue ladies, plenty of gas, nickel hamburgers, swimming in the summer, parties, lots of fun - and, most of all, no worries about the future. That was our world. Now, since Pearl Harbor and Bataan, our world, the one world we knew and loved, has come tum- bling down around our heads. And Glenn Miller, Captain Glenn Miller, is missing. It is a shock 'to us because he was a symbol of the greatest time we can remember. Maybe Harry Iames or T. Dorsey can take his place in the musical hall of fame, but it seems to us that our guys, the ones we went to high school with, were fighting for a world back to normal, with more jalopies, nickel hamburgers, sweet swing - and Glenn Miller." WE LOVE TO CO TO PARTIES, AND ONE of the best we've ever attended was the ball given by Dr. and Mrs. Decker in February. Although it was a costume party, many people came in evening clothes or street clothes Cpublic service transporta- tion, you knowl, and such a motley crowd we have never seen. Miss Uebelmesser took first prize for women with her costume. Miss Nancy said she was "disguised as the dean of women." She wore a black sleeve- less chiffon dress of the roaring twenties period, black hose, red shoes, and a moth-eaten hat. The prize for the man's most original costume went to Andy Saffas and Bill Sutherland, who tied. They were dressed as buccanneers. -Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Manhein, in Tyrolean costumes, and Tommy White and Virginia Marshall as Chinese received honorable mention. Next to Miss Uebelmesser, ranked Pinky Peck in our opinion. She came as "George" in a too- large manis suit and escorted Shirley Quade. Mary Holmes in too-small black satin, Marilynn Morris as a ballerina, Jay Cunnels as Confucius, Jeanne Wagner as a cow girl, were a few of the more interesting guests. Dr. Decker was a gypsy and Mrs. Decker was a mandarin. We even got our- selves decked out in a bustle and some false hair and made like Susie Parkington all evening . . . complete with white gloves, and ostrich fan. A group of Croatians entertained at intermission with native songs and dances and their version of some American favorites. Johnny Coon played for dancing. There were bridge and chess games going all evening. All in all it was a lovely party. The big dances have been far more successful this year than last. The Quad and the Turkey Hop both had fine turnouts. The costume ball even boasted a small stag line. Perhaps now is the time to mention the Turkey Hop. Our hearty congratulations go to Pan-Hel and the Inter-Frat Council for putting on the Hop this year and thus carrying on the APO tradition. And speaking of tradition, reminds us that we are growing up. Although KCU is not yet in its teens, it has many cherished traditions. Hobo Day, the Turkey Hop, pond dunking for frosh, and many more. This year was the first year for the all school Bar-B-Q, which will probably grow into a tradition, judging from the enthusiasm it aroused. Yes, we're growing nicely, thank you. Better keep your eyes on us. There's no telling what we can do. O O O THE KANCAROO EXTENDS ITS HEART- iest welcome to Dr. Henry Bertram Hill, upon his return to this campus. Dr. Hill was once faculty advisor for the Kangaroo, and we feel that our personal welcome is in order. We hope he will be proud of how we have grown. . Dr. Hill returns to the campus after two and a half years in Washington, D. C, and England, where he served with the OSS. We sincerel ho that Dr Hill's return to this Y Pe ' . campus is a sign of things to come. The Univer- sity has done an admirable job through this war period. But it has been with heavy hearts that we have watched our day economics department and law school vanish. True, the night courses have served a definite purpose. But we look forward to the time when once again weill have a full econ department, a day law school, and are back on a peace-time basis. O O O THIS BOOK COULDN'T CO TO PRESS without some mention of the production of "Tar- tuffe" presented at the Community Church last fall. The, U-Players presented this seventeenth century play of Moliere five nights, with a double cast in the women's parts. Miss E. Melba Johnson directed. Dr. Adams, as Orgon, and Marshall Hughes as Tartuffe were outstanding in their roles, while Pat Redding and Arliene O'Dell looked the loveliest we've ever seen them as the two Elmires. Miss Johnson has made tentative plans for the production of ,Noel Coward's "Tonight at Eight- thirty" this spring and later in the second semester she plans to do "There's Always Juliet." Which adds up to a fine season for the U-Players. The Light Op,era's production of "Martha" had everyone working hard as this went to press. We feel that four productions really gave' us our money's worth on our activity ticket, in addition to the dances our money paid for. A 0 0 0 WE THOUGHT FOR A TIME THAT perhaps the War had put a damper on our "college spirit." But when the Student Council's recom- mendation for a cut system brought forth such a storm, our faith in the Student Body was restored. Many a bull session dealt with either the cut sys- tem or peacetime conscription. We had two assemblies, one for each side of the question, to hear about and discuss peacetime conscription. The U-News Ed. Marian Duncan wrote an editorial, that brought in lletters to the Ed, and so we feel that perhaps the students at KCU are thinking in adult terms. We knew they could do it! O O O JUST A WORD ABOUT THE POLICY OF this Kangaroo. We have tried to cover all campus events and organizations in this volume, as we should do in our capacity as a year book. However we can't forget our early origins as a humor mag, and so the last few pages have been devoted to features. Perhaps this distracts from the dignity we tried to achieve in the first pages. Or perhaps the first pages distract from the light touch we've worked for in the end of the book. However that may be, We have tried to put out a book that the campus would like. You don't have to tell the Kangaroo staff that there's a war on. With restrictions on paper, film, and printing costs rocketing skyward, we have had our difficulties. Besides that, two of our pet editors got married. But we have struggled through. This is the result. We hope you like it. The old Mulberry Bush again rears its ugly head after a short absence. And for all you modest new students, we suggest that you read no further than this comma, unless you revel in sexy chatter. The Mulberry' twig to the Cho Chins for the best open house of the year. That was the eve Padrutt gave Horning the spark that created such an after charge. Also the eve Wooden paraded around with two parallel red smudges on his forehead. Funk was following him around quite proud of 'her handiwork. In response to many in- quiries, Betty said, "I always start at the top and work down." ls that the way she got that Bounder key? Some of the K.C.U. babes' greatest desire is to visit the Follies. Peck ought to be able to explain the territory pretty well to them. Cf course you remember the Turkey hop given in the A.P.O.'s absence. Hop minus the turkey. We have no idea who borrowed it, but we think the organization begins with a HB." Could we mean the Bents, eh Baldwin?

Could it be because he looks like the jerk comedian at the Tower, or because he wants to double with Maggie on girl's shower role call? T Warning to the Sigma B's: Nancy Morrison is headed your way after her one year term of exile. Hat's off: To "Speedy" Pappenfort who finally kissed OiDell after two long years. Betty Weiser is getting round shoulders from lugging around her diamond. Speaking of rings, we're glad Lynn Williams finally made up her mind which man. Quade has been dating an unruly Sigma Nu from M.U. lately. The poor boy was kicked out of the frat for giving it a bad rep. On questioning Quacle she said innocently, "He hasnit changed a bit."
