The 1945 Kangaroo is dedicated to you . . . to you who
make up the present student body and to those of you who
were once on the campus but are now serving with Uncle's
armed forces ....
Because you have gone ahead through this war period to
build our University and our country . . . because you have
demonstrated that you can think beyond the next coke ....
It is dedicated to the many of you who have died for your
ideals, and to the many more of you who will live and work
for them ....
Because you are the University . . . because without you
there could be no

Although the University's buildings are still shiny with a new-
ness the ivy cannot hide, many customs, traditions, and legends
have already become firmly established. Take the ivy itself on the
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
"3. Ivy from the grave of Patrick Henry planted s
here in Austin in the yard of one of the professors
who is a descendant of Patrick Henry."
Dr. Clarence R. Decker, presi-
dent of the University.
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
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
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.

Artist-in-residence, joseph A. 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
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 Department of Social Science is fortunate
in having Dr. Henry Bertram Hill return to the
faculty as professor of History and Political Science
and assistant to the Dean. 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
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.

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
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.

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
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.

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

charter was transferred to the University of Kansas

University. There is also a Kansas City Alumni

Phi Delta Delta was organized November 11,
1911, at the University of California. 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.

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

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,

It takes three years to complete the School of
Nursing. 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-
Nurses are gravely needed for the war effort and
there is a dangerous shortage in the United States
today. The University is proud to have these Cadet
Nurses on the campus.

Then there is the bell in the Liberal Arts Building. 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

With the filling of upper-class representative
vacancies and the freshman election, a complete
Council was assembled to plan the traditional all-
school dance, the Quadrangle. 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.

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

Marv Lou Cunningham, president, Lyn Weatherbie, vice-president, Beverly Gott, secretary, and Dorothy Wise,
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
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.

The junior year is by far the happiest year in a
student's college life. We've passed through the
Prosh year of amazement and yearning to be an
upperclassman, the know-it-all attitude of the so-

with its trials of comprehensives and the appre-
hension of serious life after graduation. Q

We again have the traditional Sophomore class,
bored with the freshman antics and their enthu-
siasm for new college life. 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.
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-
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-

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.

The past year has been a very favorable one for
the freshman student body. 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
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
war, the frosh settled down to hard work, looking
ahead to the peace that will eventually come.

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
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

Less ancient than these is the fountain on the quadrangle. ln
1939 the Seniors were induced, it is alleged, by President Decker
to present a campus fountain to their alma mater as their parting
gift. 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

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.

Mu Phi Epsilon is a national music sorority
which promotes musicianship and friendship
among women students and graduates of Amer-
ican colleges and schools of music throughout
the country. 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
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.

block instead of engaging in less destructive ac-
tivity are discussed.
There are twenty-four members, many of whom
have done practice teaching in the various grade
and high schools near the University. There they

This spring the University Music Club can look
'back upon one of the most successful years in its
career. Both membership and attendance have
been larger than in previous years, and everyone
felt that the programs lived up to the club's ideal,
"to further appreciation and knowledge of music
through use of campus talent."
The programs this year have included talks on
"Musical Therapy" and discussions of operas, as
well as talent programs. Pauline Peters, Joan
Rodgers, Betty Phillips, Maynard Pappenfort,
Margaret Custaveson, Norma Jean Knox, Doris
Cranfill, Marjorie Walthall, and Estelle Mallon
were among the students appearing on the programs.
The Music Club is looking forward to an even
more successful year in 1945-46 under the able
guidance of Dr. Robert Adams.

This spring the club sponsored a series of movies,
including pictures filmed from 1929 through 1936.
They were brought to the campus so that students
interested in the history of films could study them.

We might as well mention the murals while we are on this
subject of traditions. 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?

The Women's Pan-Hellenic Council is composed
of two representatives from each sorority on the
campus, one of which is the sorority president.
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-
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.

Beta Zeta began its ninth year as a leader in
campus activities by pledging twenty-five girls,
making it the largest sorority on the campus. The
pledge class, headed by Joy I-Ierdan as president,
was introduced to K.C.U. social life at the sorority
Open House held November 17, in the Browsing
room. 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.
Beta Zeta has not only led in social life, but has
distinguished itself with campus offices. 'Lyrn

Chiko, the oldest sorority on the University
campus, was organized in October, I933. Since its
founding, members and pledges have taken an
active part in campus activities. 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. Chiko is well repre-
sented in Student Council, and has five class of-
ficers: Lyn Weatherbie, vice-president of the
senior classg Cloriajayne Van Allsburg, secretary of
the junior class, Beverly Smith, vice-president and
Lois Nelson, secretary of the sophomore classg and
Eva Ableson, freshman Student Council represent-
ative. Members of Chiko have also been active in
the departmental clubs and on student publications.
The club colors are red and gold, the chrysan-

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. Mary Lou Cunningham was
editor of the University News.

Sigma Beta began its eleventh year of activities
on the campus by a round of rushing, climaxed by
its two important rush parties, an Hawaiian party
at the home of Trilby Burks, and a dinner at the
Hotel Bellerive. The end of silent week found
Sigma Beta with one of its largest pledge classes -
sixteen girls. Honor initiates were Margaret Ryan
and Ann Fuller.
Heightening the holiday spirit, Sigma Beta held
its traditional Christmas dinner-dance, December
26, in the Windsor ,room of the Hotel Phillips.
Music for an unusually delightful evening was
furnished by Harry Kaufmann's Diplomats. Now,
anxiously awaited is the spring formal planned
for late in May.
Sigma Beta was not only prominent in social
activities but also held outstanding honors in the
campus activities. Ruthann Beyer held the offices
of both president and vice-president of Student
Council, and was also on the University News
Board of Control, secretary of International Rela-
tions Club, and treasurer of the Pan-Hellenic
Council, Jeanne Wagner was vice-president of the
Art Club, president of the junior class, business
manager of the University News, junior editor of

of the Student Council, Mable Bernard held the
offices of secretary and treasurer of Easy Chair,
while Myrna Powell was president of the Psy-
chology Club, Jeanette Kaufmann was secretary-
treasurer of Asturias, and secretary of the Newman

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
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."

Bounders, the first fraternity to be chartered by
the University, was organized in 1938. 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-
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. Those who remain are carry-
ing on the traditions of Bounders for the absent
brothers until the day comes when all their voices
will be joined in singing "Bounders, Hail to Thee!"

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-

"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.
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

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.

Our annual Hobo Day was held April 27 this
year. 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
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
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-
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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

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

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

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
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.

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.
