Our faculty is quite a crowd
Never noisy, never loud
CExcept Wilcox at cafeteria
His monstrous voice and laugh would cheer a
Wailing student.D Miss Zimmer's gigglew-
How she does it'-that's the riddle.
Thru classrooms Miss Loughridge dignifiedly walks,
Mrs. Watson-Newell, she' just talks and talks!
Mr. Dickson is the ladies' man,
And chickens are his hobby.
Mr. Young's as busy as he can be,
And his clothes are neat and nobby.
Miss Odell is one of our very best teachers,
At a football game you'll find her on the
Miss Peters, to whom all the girls thanks are
Knows the seniors have something to do besides
She says, "Take this assignment and get what
You can't say that of Davis, the botany man.
Mr. Smith makes you work, but he's pleasant
Miss Bullock's an angel-who among us would
The boys all call Coleman an O. K. Prof.,
Bradford sometimes does things that make us all
laugh Csee joke sectionj.
Now the few Faculty members mentioned here
Are the ones among us whom we hold most dear,
And also the ones who lay down the law.
"Less noise and more study"--"Don't stand in
"The class bell has rung, girls"-i"You owe me
"l'm surprised at the number of times you skip
And so on and so forth from morn until night,
From a faculty member you can't get out of sight.
ln looking thru this book you'll note
Not much about the faculty we've wrote.
And the reason this isn't done by us,
ls because they are so inconspicuous!

Everybody loves the Seniors, that's why we are feeling gay
Happy Seniors! Happy Seniors!
And we are the bestest class in all the whole S. of A.,
Happy Seniors! Happy Seniors!
Won't the other classes miss us when we are so far away
And they'll shed tears all the time.
Oh, we are the loyal Seniors of the dear old S. of A.,
Happy Seniors! Hurrah!
Timid, bashful, and green,
Scared at everything we saw,
Always said, "That's what I seen,"
And "I want to see my Ma."
This is a little history book. Not the kind of history that Miss Denny teaches, but the
history of our school life in the dear old S. of A.
In the fall of 1913, on Monday, the thirteenth day of October, students gathered on the
State Farm Campus and after the confusion of registration, 126 of us reported to classes on
Wednesday morning. , ,
We will confess that for a few days some of us felt what is known as homesicknessg however,
it vanished in a very short time, as we immediately organized and formed a class.
On October 21 we had our first class meeting. Professor Young was appointed to act as our
sponsor, and the class officers elected were: Donald Tracy, president 5 Mr. Anderson, vice-president,
Miss Wilson, treasurer, and Miss Hyers, secretary. Mr. Anderson was appointed yell leader for
the first football game.
At the third meeting of the class Mr. Anderson was elected class reporter and Mr. Corby
elected representative on the athletic board. Also plans were made for our first party and the
social committee, consisting of Misses Kleine, Nelson, Clausen, and Mr. Rivett, was elected.
At our fourth meeting the class chose maroon and white for the class colors. Mr. Young
designed a pennant which was adopted by the class.
The first social function was a barn warming, which originated with our class. The class
decided that it should be made an annual affair. It was held November 22 in the Judging Pavilion.
On February 24, Ray Cullen was elected class president, to take the place of Donald Tracy
who left school. A
Our second class party took place in February.
The latter part of April the class disorganized and we went to our homes, scattered thruout
"Growing braver and more contented,
Enjoying school life as we should,
For our bashfulness we've repented
And decided that we'd be good."
After a seemingly short vacation we again gathered on the campus to take up our second
year's work. Many of the old students were unable to return and we numbered sixty-five. The
first class meeting was held October 16, for the purpose of electing officers. The elections were as
follows: Ray Cullen, president 5 Metta Nelson, vice-president, Arvilla Kleine, secretary 3 Novia
Preston, treasurer, Harley Nelson, sergeant-at-armsg and Louis Osbourn to represent the class
on the athletic board.
The class sweaters were decided upon October 26 and ordered.
On October 31 the class gave a reception to the Freshman class, which was well attended
by both classes. This was the first reception ever given to the Freshmen by the Sophomores.
On November 4 the constitution and by-laws were read and adopted by the class.
On November 16 a special class meeting was held for the purpose of electing a committee to
represent the class in selecting an alumni pin for the school.
The second annual barn warming was held December 12.
Altho we were few in number some of our deeds will long be remembered, especially by some
of the faculty members. On a bright, sunny morning, shortly after Thanksgiving, our class colors
were seen floating proudly in the air, just below the U. S. flag at the top of the flag pole at the

Few went to classes, but either took part in the scrap or watched the excitement which
immediately took place. i Several brave boys ventured to climb the pole, but none could reach our
flag. Some one pulled on the cable and drew the Hag into the pulley at the very top of the pole,
fastening it so that no one could get it down.
After about two hours the Juniors, thru awkwardness, broke the cable. Prof. Bradford
took action and called all boys who had been engaged in the affair to the assembly room for a
special conference. After about two hours of hot discussion it was decided that the Juniors and
Sophomores pay for the cable. Concluding that the fun was Worth 87.50, we paid our half.
O bln April We again departed for our homes, with the expectation of seeing each other again in
"Boosters and workers' were we,
In every thing agoingg
Boosters, now don't you see,
For we were wiser growing." V
In October, 1915, We gathered as "Jolly Juniors" on the campus. We had again lost some of
our old members, but many new students joined our ranks to take their places, making the class
Our first class meeting was held October 19, and the class officers were elected as follows:
Floyd Rivett, president, Richard Rowe, vice-president, Frances Walter, secretaryg and Walter
Nelson, treasurer. '
The second meeting of the Junior class was held October 27. 'Earl Humphries was elected
athletic representative and A. B. Worthman sergeant-at-arms.
At the third meeting of the class Metta Nelson was elected assistant associate editor and
Richard Rowe was elected assistant manager for the 1916 SHUCKS.
On January 20, the new school paper was launched. It was entitled f'The Aggie Tattler"
and published by the Junior class.
The class chose for its motto: "If we rest, we rust" and as class flowers, maroon and white
The Junior Prom was held February 12 in the Music Hall.
One morning shortly after vacation our class colors mysteriously appeared on the top of the
supply tank, and also on the top' of the new standpipe. They waved proudly in the breeze until
nearly noon. The next morning the Sophomores pennant was found suspended from the cables
across the campus. The Juniors immediately proceeded to take it down. Bob Corby removed it
from the cable and dropped it to the crowd below. In the scrimmage which followed one of the
Junior boys had the misfortune to get his arm broken. V
The Junior basketball team won the inter-class basketball championship by trimming the
Seniors to the tune of 9 to 5, and the Freshmen 22 to 12.
The Junior class also won the 1916 basketball banner, which was awarded for being the
best basketball boosters.
On Monday evening, April 17, the class gave a reception in honor of the Seniors and their

- CHAPTER 1V
"Ready for the last year's run,
The race that is hard to beat,
The race that we surely won,
And the race that was complete."
It was with high spirits and ambitions that we took up our last year's Work. The first Senior
class meeting was held October 16, 1916, for the election of class officers.
H. D. Boyer was elected president, E. T. Winter, vice-president, Hilda Clausen, secretary,
David Way, treasurerg Novia Preston, representative on the athletic board 5 Genevieve Morris,
member of advisory board for Tattlerg and Metta Nelson, class reporter.
The Junior dance was held December 9 in the Music Hall. About thirty-five couples were
The usual custom of Senior slouch day was changed, as some of the Faculty stated that in
former years the matter had been carried to extremes. The class adopted in its place, "Shirts and
Middiesf' All of the girls wore boys' shirts, collars and ties, and the boys wore middies. This
Plan was highly approved and commended by the Faculty.
S The fourth and last annual barn Warming was held in November. Several members of the
other classes tried to make a raid on the "eats" but received a good Hroughing up" instead.
The Senior basketball team Won the inter-class basketball championship. The fight was
much easier Won than last year. The class also Won the Booster basketball banner again.
A special class meeting was held February 21 for all Senior girls. The purpose of the meeting
was to decide on the style of graduation dress. A uniform dress was adopted for the occasion.
This movement is new and highly approved by good authorities.
During April we sluffed for one whole day and who can say we didn't make the most of it?
After many other good times which were crowded into the last of the school year, we received our
diplomas on April 20, and left for our homes.
As time rolls on and our interests roam far away, We will carry with us memories of happy
days spent together during the four years of our school life.
Now as we Work, or roam, or rest,
No matter how long the years may seem,
We'll not forget the School We love best,
And the class of nineteen-seventeen.

The play takes place an evening in Richmond during the war of the Rebellion, at a time when the northern
forces were entrenched before the city and endeavoring by all possible means to break down the defenses and capture
the Confederate capitol. .
' Two brothers, northern spies, enter Richmond. One pretends to be a southern captain, and calls himself Captain
Thorne. He comes to General Varney's home trying to get hold of the telegraph lines of the south so that he can send
messages to the northern lines. He becomes very much attached to Edith, the general's daughter, and she to him.
She hears that he must leave Richmond, so she gets a commission from the President putting Captain Thorne in charge
of the southern telegraph lines.
Mr. Arrelsford is a suitor of Miss Varney's, and a southerner with a great deal of authority. When he finds
Edith is interested in Captain Thorne he tries, and finally succeeds in proving that Captain Thorne is a spy.
Old Jonas, a servant at the Varney home, is taken prisoner for carrying a message from the other brother to
Captain Thorne. The brother then comes, himself, to give the message to Thorne. He finds they are being watched!
and shoots 'himself in order to clear his brother.
When Thorne finds he is caught he tells Edith what he is, wanting her to understand everything before he is
gone. They are going to shoot him for sending a message unfavorable for the southern army. At the last minute
they find he didn't send it, and with the promise of Edith's love, he is taken as a prisoner of war. I
Wilfred Varney and Caroline Mitford are the comedy relief. They were engaged, but Caroline breaks the
engagement because he doesn't go to the front. He was too young to go, but just when he decides to go anyway, his
father sends word that he is to come. Before he gets to the front he is wounded slightly and brought home, but he is
Caroline's hero, and the play ends with themiloving each other more than before. The cntirc cast is as follows:

On the morning of October 12, 1914, a dull green
spot was seen on the campus. At first it was thought
to be a new variety of plant, but closer investigation
revealed the fact that it was the new Freshman class,
the Class of '18. In order to conform to all traditions
and maintain all precedents we retained our verdant
hue thruout the year. We cheerfully sacrificed our
interests to the upperclassmen whenever occasion
demanded Cas in the inter-class basketball gamesj, but
in our own sphere we were very active. We carried
out successfully several parties, thus becoming
acquainted with each other and sowing the
seed of future class unity. Among other achievements
we dismissed a dairy class with the aid of a bent pin,
and were the first Freshman class to give a class play.
As Sophomores we began to lose some of our verdure,
but only to reveal the buds from which were to spring
the blossoms of class accomplishment. Four football A's
were awarded members of the Class of '18 in the 1915
season. Our Sophomore banquet was the first of its
kind in the school and was only one of the many things
which went to show our originality as a class. '
Thus from a humble beginning we have grown and
"blossomed as the rose" until now as a Junior class we
have a record of which we feel proud. Six football A's
went to Juniors. Four basketball A's went to Juniors.
A Junior is captain of the basketball team. The Juniors
won in the Olympics. More than half the working force
of both literary societies is made up of Juniors. In
fact there are more 1918 Juniors in the limelight of
school activities than of any Junior class in the history
of the school. We are the Hrst class in school to adopt
a constitution and set of by-laws as Juniors, fthe
other classes adopted theirs as Sophomoresb the first
class to dare lock an instructor out of the room, the first
class to take a hayrack ride Cand incidentally hog-tie an
intruding underclassmanl, and we are the last class to
back down on anything we start. Truly we are a great
class and one which lives up to its motto: "Deeds-not

Junior originality was manifested in a hayrack party
which was held November 25, 1916.
Three hayracks carried them from 33d and Holdrege
to Bethany Grove. A "peppier" or more lively bunch
you never saw nor heard. Better chaperones could not
be found than Miss Odell and Mrs. Watson.
After firewood was gathered and a large bonfire
was blazing, the Juniors realized how hungry they
really were. The provision barrels were ransacked and
each Junior brought forth a half dozen wieners, a dozen
pickles, and a cup for coffee. The odor of boiling coffee
and the sizzle of the sputtering wieners was a call to
The feast' was well finished when the Junior girls
passed baskets of candy. H
We must not overlook the poor Sophomore who
tried to pass himself as a Junior. Oh, how he failed!
He was tied hand and foot and placed under guard of
three stalwart sentinels.
The class vociferously gave their yells and were
taught a new one by Mrs. Watson, the new sponsor.
After the president, Alfred Thomsen, had made his
usual earnest talk to the class, the fire was extinguished
and the mules were headed for home. Altho every one
was tired, the enthusiasm did not lag until they were
deposited at the entrance of dear old S. of A.
Beauty and good cheer were in evidence on the
evening of February 10, 1917, when the Juniors gave
their first class dance at the Temple. The class colors,
blue and white, and class pennants were used effectively
in decorating the room. Forty-five couples danced to
the music of Scott's Hve-piece orchestra. The words of
praise heard on all sides made the Juniors feel that once
again they had done something of which they could be
Rosengren-"Will you go to the dance with me?"

The Class of '19 met October 13, 1916, to reorganize
and elect officers for the ensuing year. Baker, the
secretary and treasurer, took the chair in the absence of
both the president and the vice-president. The meeting
was called to order and nomination and election of

consented to continue to sponsor the class.
The class is not as strong in numbers this year as
last, but the quality of the class counterbalances the
deficiency in numbers. To the school the class has
presented a slow, calm exterior. The Niagara River
below the Canadian Falls presents a comparatively
smooth surface which conceals a tremendously powerful
under-current-no human power can resist that mighty
stream-rising to the surface far below. Oh, ye Aggies!
Watch the Class of 1919.
We might start don'ting, we suppose,
But still we guess we won'tg
For everywhere a fellow goes,
He runs against a don't.
It's don't do that and don't do this,
The way with dont's is fraught:
But hardly one worth notice is,
Excepting, "Don't- Get Caught."
As barriers the dont's are set
To hinder me and youg
We never saw a don'ter yet
Who got there on the do.
At all the dont's its best to smile,
The whole pestiferous gang
Just keep on doing all the while,
And let the dont's go hang.
The Sophomores have a quiet way,
Altho at times they're blithe and gay 3
Their every move is most entrancing,
There's mischief in their silent glancing
Even tho they're garbed in Quaker gray.

SOPHOMORE CHRISTMAS PARTY
A rousing Christmas party was held December 16
in rooms 305 and 306. At the door each person was
given a slip of paper on which was written the name of
one member of the Santa Claus family. After some
difliculty each member of the family found his relatives
and began planning some way in which each member
Cof the family foundj might show his wisdom, wit, or
humor. After the program, which was very clever, a few
games were played. We then adjourned to room 305
to see what new mystery was there awaiting us. In the
middle of the floor was a large Christmas tree, decorated
with snowballs and many other bright ornaments:
beside the tree stood jolly old Santa. Last, but not least,
each one received a Christmas gift and two full stockings
of the goodiest homemade candy and popcorn. After
romping a while we were contented to say, "Good
night," and we did.
In football we, the Sophomores, certainly did shine.
Three of our men made the team and won sweaters.
Troxel, a burly right guard, was the terror of the opposing
team. Dick Cornell, swift left end, beat them all at
catching forward passes, and was a hard and sure
tackler. Harry Johnson, the speedy left halfback, was
one of the best on the team.
At the Olympics we did not make much in the races
or tug-of-war, but when it came to the big ring fight,
we simply swept the other classes off the field, coming
out second place with a score of seventy-five to the
Juniors ninety, showing the Seniors who's who.
During basketball season we had another chance
to win glory and we surely did, for three of our men
again made A's. Leslie Johnson, altho not quite
eflicient for first team, was a speedy man and could hold
his own with any of the others. Linn, a new member
of the class of whom we are very proud, was a shark at
throwing field goals. ,
Harry Johnson sure has pep. He was the swiftest
of any man on the floor. '
Of course we will have to admit we made a poor
showing at the inter-class games, but there's a reason.

One Saturday evening, in November, a reception
was given to the Freshmen by the class of 1919. A
short program was the first feature of the evening and
following this games were played. The Freshmen
responded very well and were in for a good time. In
room 305 the eats were served, consisting of brick ice
cream and wafers. One might think this a very cool
reception, but just you ask the Freshmen.
Miss K.: "Miss Francis, what is the best way of
Miss F.: "Why, to cat it."
Miss K.: "Miss Southworth, what two kinds of
vertebraes have we?" '
Miss S.: "Crooked and straight."
The purpose of our constitution is to force the
members of the Sophomore class to obey the following:
1. All talk at once.
2. Set while you yell at the chair.
3. Chew gum until your jaws are tired.
4. Speak before you're spoken to.
5. Settled business should be unsettled at once.
6. Keep on the grass. ,
7. Kick down all signs opposing above.
8. Stand in the hall during class hours.
9. Go home for lunch when there's going to be a
class meeting. I
10. Fall down stairs.
11. Follow the "Chocolate Path."
12. Borrow money for candy and chewing gum to
drive OIT starvation in sewing, cooking and

On October 10, 1916, the railroad stations of Lincoln
poured forth a body of pulchritudinous students, whose
duty it is to make the class of 1920 larger and better
than that of any preceding year. They are doing their
utmost in every conceivable manner to accomplish the
seemingly impossible expectations of their seniors.
Their First class meeting was held on October 17, and
was Hooded by interested and enthusiastic students.
Our capable and very accommodating sponsor, Prof. C.
W. Smith, was appointed by Prof. Bradford, thus
saving the class much debating. There was then need
of other oiiicers and at the next meeting the cream of
the class was skimmed to furnish substance to fill the
vacancy. The following students were elected: Edd
Harris, president: Helena Nelson, vice-president: Her-
mina Albers, secretary and treasurer, and Willard
Dover, yell leader.
Owing to the death of a close relative Mr.'Harris was
forced to leave us, the departure causing a gloom to fall
upon his fellow students. At the next meeting, Harold
Vincent was elected to the chair and has proven himself
to be a most worthy successor.
The next fork in the road was the contest for the
bleachers for the football game. The class worked in
cooperation, but owing to their unacquaintance and
the sudden change from farm life, they were defeated
by one of the upper classes.
At the inter-class basketball games they won over
the Juniors, which shows that they possess both skill
Recently our unlucky president was called away and
once more the chair was left vacant. A meeting was
called and the honor of being Freshman president was
bestowed upon Arthur Pierce, whom the class looks upon
as a most worthy leader.

HELPFUL HINTS TO HOUSELESS WIVES
If we were a woman and did all the milking and then
had a husband who doled out spending money in two-
bit pieces, we would meet him at the front gate some
placid summer evening and separate him from his
pocketbook with a rolling pin. A woman of our acquaint-
ance who had a husband addicted to this habit laid for
her liege lord with an axe helve as he tip-toed around
the barn and before she said, "thus endeth the reading
of the first lesson," he looked as if he had been pawed
over by a traction engine.
The next morning he arose at four A. M., built the
fire, chased the clothes thru the wringer so fast that
he set fire to the tub, scrubbed the Hoor and got break-
fast with the apologetic and conciliatory air of a man
who had dropped his teeth in the consomme at a church
supper. There are times when a well-planned swat
across the bridge of the nose with the bed slat, as a
gentle hint to take his feet off the center table, and get
busy about the premises, is effort well spent. We do
not advise violence except in cases of extreme provoca-
tion and then only with consent of the county attorney.

Patrick, lately over, was working in the yards of a
railroad. One day, he happened to be in the yard
office when the force was out. The telephone rang
vigorously several times, and he at last decided that it
ought to be answered. He walked over to the in-
strument, took down the receiver, and put his mouth
up to the transmitter, just as he had seen others do.
"Hello," he said.
"Hello," answered the voice at the other end of
the wire, "Is this 86159?"

Company E was organized in 1905 and was the first
military organization in the School. The present organ-
ization is the outgrowth of the original Company E.
Since competitive drill became an annual event in the
School she has taken her full share of first prizes. This
year the company is made up entirely of men who have
had one or more years of drill. This, with the able staff
of officers to lead them, should make a very good show-
ing in the coming compete.
Right face! Left face!
We're the boys that set the pace.

Company F was the second company to be organized
in the department of Military Science at the S.of A.
dating back to 1906. Last year she won first place in
inter-company competitive drill, and not stopping there,
won both first and second prize cups for individual
merit, this leaving her with nothing more to gain. This
is the only instance on record when one company took
all offered prizes. More promotions were made to com-
missioned and non-commissioned ofiicers from this
company than from any other. This year with her
efiicient oHicers she expects to keep up her standard in
competitive drill and also make a good showing in the
inter-company gallery meet for both of which the out-
look is favorable.

Company G, organized in 1906, was the third com-
pany of the School of Agriculture Cadet Battalion.
Altho she has never won first place in competitive drill,
she has won other honors more highly prized. Com-
pany G has furnished more commissioned oflicers for the
battalion than any other company.
Last year she easily won first place in the inter-
company gallery meet, and again this year is well able
to hold the honored position. This year, with the
efficient work of the officers and the cooperation of the
men in ranks, Company G can and must hold her own
and announce the victory with:

the fall of 1907. As a baby Company H has taken high
honors, leading the other companies in first competitive
drill, having five in all. The first three years after her
organization she came out first. This year, with H.
Boyer, captain, E. Humphries, lst lieutenant, and W.
Rolofson, 2d lieutenant, as oflicers, and a good group of
new men, we hope to duplicate Company H's past accom-
plishments and take due honors in Compet to the tune of:

The Workizer'Rifles were organized in the school year of 1907-08 by C. J. Frankforter, who
was then cadet major of the battalion. They were named after Capt. John G. Workizer, who
was then the commandant.
The "Workizers" are made up of men in the School of Agriculture who have had at least one
year's drill, and they are usually officers and non-commissioned officers of the battalion. We have
an enro'lment this year of foursquads and with the old time ginger we expect to give our com-
petitors the worst drubbing ever heard of.
The purpose of this organization is to make drill more perfect and interesting for those who
take part. They also hold a competitive drill with a similar company known as the "Pershings"
at the city campus.
Drill is held once each week and it is very necessary for every man to be out, or he is apt to
lose his place in the company. Interest has been very keen this year, owing to the fight for
major, and it is known that the membership of the "Workizers" is taken into consideration in the
With Major A. B. Worthman as our leader, we expect to give the "Pershings" a race they
will long remember. ,

The Commissioned OfTicer's Ball was held in the Rose room of the Lindell Hotel, Saturday
evening, March 3, 1917. No social affair in the history of the School has been so Well attended and
highly appreciated as was the Commissioned Of'Hcer's Ball of this year.
At 6:30 the guests were ushered to the banquet board which was adorned with daffodils and
smilax, displaying the school colors. A row of lighted candles down the center added to the
splendor of the banquet table.
Toasts were given by Commandant Parker, Principal H. E. Bradford, and Major A. B.
Worthman. Lieut. E. E. Humphries was toastmaster. It is regretted very much that the speeches
were not printed so that they could be reproduced here.
The speaking was followed by a grand march, led by the regimental and national colors.
The rest of the evening was given over to dancing. Those who did not dance were entertained at
a theatre party. Q

The Davisson Literary Society was the first society in the School of Agriculture. It was organized by the
students onilanuary 9, 1906. It is named in honor of Prof. Davisson, the first principal in the S. of A. The object
of the society is to provide entertainment for the students and to give them an opportunity to develop their literary
talents. During the past year the society has given a program every other Friday night, alternating with the Ophelian.
In the programs we have endeavored to give a Variety of literary advantages, consisting of debates, readings, music,
sketches of the lives of people of note, histories of our holidays, plays, dialogs, and pantomimes. ,
Aside from the regular programs the society organizes a debating team each year to compete with the Ophelians
in an inter-society debate. ,
Our motto: Of the Students, by the students, for the students.

The organization of this society took place in the school year of 1907-8. The word Ophelian means "Friend-
ship." During the past year this society has very successfully lived up to its name: also in a general way it has tried
to follow the lines laid out by it, both in literary and social purposes. In this it has keen helped a great deal by
Miss Flora Bullock, sponsor of both literary societies
' The advantages which are given to every member in the way of valuable training in public speaking, debating,
reading, etc., have been well demonstrated thruout the year. ,
At the beginning of the school year a joint social meeting was held with the Davisson society,'at which a good
program was rendered, followed by a mixer in which everybody took part and had a good time. The Ophelian held
open meetings every two weeks on Friday evenings, which were, well attended. The programs were very interesting.
. Each year a debating team is chosen to represent the society in an inter-society debate with the Davissons.
This has been a custom for seven years. The Ophelians have won live of these debates.

The Young Men's Christian Association has been one of the most prominent and prosperous organizations in
the School of Agriculture during the past year. It was turned over to the new cabinet March 15, 1916, after which
plans were made for getting delegates to go to Estes Park for the summer conference. Thru the efforts of the State
Secretary and those who went last year three members were induced to go.
When the school opened October 13, 1916, the whole cabinet came back ready to put their shoulders to the wheel
and make the organization a success.
In the course of the year the following things have been done for the benefit of the student body: The new
students were assisted in finding rooming placesg a stag party was given in the new horse barn: a joint Y. M. and Y. W.
mixer was given in Ag. Hallg a football banquet was given to show the appreciation of the school for the good work
done by the team: a football carnival was given with the aid of the other organizations and classes 'in the school: the
Shorthorns were initiated in the Judging Pavilion.
During the Hrst semester a Bible study class was conducted, and the second semester Sunday afternoon
meetings were held.
The organization gave a supper once a month in the cafeteria, and these meetings were well attended and appre-
ciated. Interesting speakers were engaged to talk on these occasions.
We wish the coming cabinet success during the year 1918.

THE AGGIE TATTLER was introduced into the School of
Agriculture last year by a few enthusiastic members of the Class
of '17. They decided that such a progressive school as this
should be represented in the high school world. The most
appropriate means was thru the columns of a real live paper.
The paper was also intended to create school interest and to
furnish news to the members and alumni.
At the beginning of the present school year, the Work of
editing the paper was taken up by a staff chosen from the Class
of '18. The loyal support of the Faculty and students has enabled
this staff to put out a volume which they trust has accomplished
in a measure some of the things which they have desired it
The paper now has a prominent place in the school, and it is
the sincere hope of the staff that it may continue to increase in
excellence and interest. .

Now it so happened that in a seat of learning, known as the State Farm, where flows the
Dead Man's Run, there were those who were blessed with the far sight of the Prophets of Old.
Now these who dwelt in the land of milk and honey were a goodly lotkstout men and fair
maidens----so when they gathered together in the council chambers there were a goodly number.
And one spake in this wise----men and brethren is it not mete that we invite these foreign
tribes to dwell among us? Let us bid them welcome.
Let our young men and maidens learn to speak their tongue that when they come to us they
can hear every man in his own tongue.
So thus it came to pass that the band became a conclave, known as " Der Deutsche Vereinf'
They sent out mighty runners of men of great valor searching the highways and byways to
find a leader who would be able to teach them the tongue and customs of the incoming tribe, known
as Germans. She must have the knowledge of King Solomon. She must have the grace of
Pavlowa that she may teach the dances. She must have the voice of Schumann-Heink that she
may teach their songs and music. And they traveled far and wide until they came to the house
of one known as Denny whose daughter had a countenance like unto the rising sun, whose feet
were swift to do and light to dance, and whose knowledge made Solomon look like thirty centsg
she was comely to look upon and always a lady.
And much has been the success and profit of her teaching.

Ever since the beginning of history the Scandinavian people have been known for their bold and daring habits:
there never was a task so hard or daring that the people of Scandinavia would think it unconquerable. They have
come to this country and made it their home to represent the descendants who centuries ago explored the northern seas.
It would be found that in the districts of our country where there are Scandinavians, there is a community of
peace and happinessg this will be found true in Nebraska. V
The School of Agriculture has a good representation of this bold and daring blood, and inlthem can be seen the
characteristics that they had centuries ago. They are always leaders in 'school activities and in the classroom the
equal of any.
The organization is not an old one and was organized by the class of the term of 1914-153 since that time they
have been progressing very rapidly. The club consists of Danes, Swedes, and Norwegians. The plan is to have
meetings every half semester, or four meetings a term, to have programs consisting of readings, songs and sketches
of Scandinavian life, some of which are to be in the Scandinavian languages.
Our motto: "Wit, Wisdomhand Fun."

The S. of A. orchestra has been one of the big features of the school this year. With a leader by the name of
Horn, one would expect nothing else but a success. Some one would probably "blow" him up if he didn't produce
some good music. As it is we are sure this "Horn" ought to be tooted far and wide, for without him the orchestra
would never have reached its high place of excellency. Two old and nine new members were turned over to his tender
mercies at the beginning of the year. With this material be has turned out the finished product of all stars whom
you have had the pleasure of listening to so many times this year.
Maybe the reason for the phenomenal success of the orchestra was the lack of feminine aspirationists. This is
one field of student activities which the girls have yet to conquer. Until they wake up you can expect good music.
SAVE THE ORCHESTRA BOYS ! !
The violin section, consisting of George Pearson, Emmet Cashen, Clements Alger, Willard Dover, and Walter
Troxel, was very ably filled and many of the sweet sounds-ff-and some of the discords --can be attributed to their genius.
Emil Osterloh and Meade held down the cornet parts with ease. Carl Ruegg was the only elarinetist but he made
up for a thousand. The bass section, with Ernest Bartz and Wm. Wiedeberg at slide trombones, did justice to both
themselves and orchestra.
The orchestra appeared before the school and public several times, the first time being at the Xmas Convocation.
The next was the week of Organized Agriculture, when they played for several of the meetings, and also the State
Horticultural Society. They were on the Historical Pageant program, and also played for the Senior Class Play, as
has been the custom for ears.
The pleasure of sucli an organization in our school cannot be over-estimated. lt is one of the things that bring
the students together and helps to manufacture school spirit and "pep,"
To music lovers it has been a real treat, or at least we hope so. Everybody boost for an even better orchestra
next year. 'I7

The School of Agriculture Glee Club was reorganized at the beginning of the school year, with Mr. Chas. Lively
as its leader. About thirty-five fellows tried out and Mr. Lively selected eighteen. Practice began at once. At a
business meeting, held shortly after the members of the club were selected, the following officers were elected:
President ..................... . ,.,... W. A. NELSON
Vice-President. . . .... FRANK EVANS
Secretary .... . . .PAUL PATMORE
Treasurer ..... ......,............. H ASKLE BOYI-JR
We practiced every Monday and Wednesday evening. We also made some rules. A fine was placed upon each
member who did not appear at every practice without a good and sudicient reason for his absence.
We were soon able to take part in a Convocation program and later able to produce a full Convocation program
of our own, which seemed to be fully enjoyed by all of the students and'Faculty members who listened to us.
During the week of organized Agriculture we had the pleasure of being on the program for severalof the meetings,
one of which was a banquet given at the Commercial Club for the County Fair representatives. You may trust us
for being there on time and singing our very best, for we never were known to be bashful when there was a good feed
I The good times we had together and the new songs that we learned from time to time served to make a true
and lasting friendship for all. We shall never forget those days when we could all meet together with such laughter
and joy. l
We fully appreciated and wish we could thank our leader enough for his patient work and valuable time rendered
for our benefit. We also owe a great deal to Mr. Havlicek, who was our assistant at the piano. Their names will
never escape our fond memories of "Old Glee Club Days."

These were a few of the remarks heard on the athletic
during the first few nights of practice, and the answers
to the questions were, "Where did they all come from?
Why didn't you know Mr. Bradford wrote to all old
men to be sure and be back and be here early." "That
tall fellow, why that's a new guy, Harrington, and you
sure must be a Freshie if you don't know Osbourn, and
we sure are going to win some games this year and
we sure will have to yell some. Believe me!"
It had been the earnest wish of football enthusiasts
that this year would bring forth a wonderful team, and
lo, their prayers were answered! This statement needs
no written proof, since we have all been eye witnesses
and know our team made a wonderful showing in every
game. There are many reasons for the good record and
it is difficult to say which is the greatest, but here are
a few that need to be mentioned:
First, we must mention the wonderful training
received at the hands of Coach Lantz and'his assistant,
"Broddy" Proctor. Second, the superb material with
which the coach had to work: and, last, the man who
led the team, Captain Osbourn. l
The season, as a whole, has been a record of which
every loyal Aggie is justly proud, and this book would
not be complete without a more or less detailed record
of each game. Thus, with pleasure, we erect the follow-
ing verbal monument to our living warriors.
With our first game only a week ofl, there was no
time to spare for training, as the team had to be ready
to meet University Place. As luck would have it, it
rained the day wc were to play and the game was post-
poned for a week.
. Fairbury Game
On October 27, Fairbury invaded our territory and
met with defeat by the powerful Aggie squad.
This game started off with a rush, the Aggies
putting the ball in Fairbury's territory. Fairbury failed
to find themselves and as a result failed at line plunges
and punts. They were penalized several times during
this quarter. The next quarter started and Osbourn
got the ball and ran half the length of the field for a
touchdown. Wheeler kicked goal. During the second
half the Aggies' powerful machine kept the ball in
Fairbury's territory almost all of the time. Our old reliable
Osbourn received the ball and over he went for another
touchdown. Wheeler put his toe to the ball and over
it went.' With just a few minutes left to play our
speedy little end, Dick Cornell, received a pass from
Osbourn and made another touchdown. The whistle
blew and the Aggies were victorious by a score of 33 to 0.
University Place Game
The following week came University Place, which
had again been postponed on account of the weather. This
game was one that had been hanging fire for sometime
and both teams were anxious for the whistle to blow.
Wheeler kicked off for the Aggies. He kept right on
going with his line plunges until suddenly University
Place staged' some fancy plays and then the real scrap
began. Osbourn caught one of their forward passes
and ran over a hundred yards for our touchdown.
Wheeler's never failing toe put the ball over and
the score stood 7 to 0 in the Aggies' favor. The
Aggies were penalized and with good work on
University Place's side Cummings made their touch-
down but failed to kick goal. The second half started
and University Place staged some good gains and worked
the pass to good advantage. When the Aggies were in
possession of the ball they made some good gains and
placed them in University Place territory. During the
last quarter the Aggies braced up and made some
excellent gains and they were in several yards of goal
when the final whistle blew. Final score: 7 to 6,
Nebraska City Game
On the week of November 7, Nebraska City entered
our campus, confident of victory. They had won four
games previous to our game, but as usual the Aggies
were determined never to lose a game on their grounds,
so they succeeded in downing Nebraska City.
As usual Wheeler kicked off and placed the ball in
Nebraska City's territory. The Aggies recovered the
ball and Wheeler made the first touchdown but failed
to kick goal. The quarter was made up of mostly line
plunges on both sides and the quarter ended with the
Aggies several yards from goal. Nebraska City started
the second half with a penalty and they seemed to be
unable to gain by end runs or line smashes.
Nebraska City recovered a fumble and they staged
open plays and landed in the Aggies' territory. The
Aggies were in the center of the field using their line
plunges to great advantage when they fumbled and lost
the ball. Osbourn finally caught one of Nebraska City's
passes and ran half the field. The Aggies failed at line
plunges, but they staged successful end runs. Smith of
Nebraska City caught one of the Aggies' passes and
seeing an opened field before him he made Nebraska
City's first and only touchdown. The Aggies came back
with line plunges and Phillips, our slippery little quarter,
slipped thru and added another touchdown to our credit.
Wheeler failed to kick goal. Osbourn rushed thru for
another touchdown and goal kick but failed. The
game ended within three yards of the Aggies' goal with
Nebraska City in possession of the ball. Final score:
Aggies 18, Nebraska City 7.
On November 10 the Aggies and most of the school
made a trip to Beatrice to battle with one of the strongest
teams in the state. The Aggies went down in the
morning and the school arrived just as the team was
entering the gridiron. The Aggies played successfully
and continually tore Beatrice to pieces. Wheeler caught
one of Beatrice's passes and ran forty yards for our
touchdown. This made Beatrice look up and they soon
found out that the Aggies were no green bunch. Finally
Beatrice by successful line plunges placed their first
touchdown and the score stood 7 to 7. The teams
played very good football and finally in the last two
minutes of play Beatrice placed a successful place kick
over and the score stood 10 to 7 in favor of Beatrice.
As our season was drawing to a close Tecumseh was
yet to be met. The Tecumseh boys look like real
football men, but their looks had nothing to do with our
deadly machine. The game started with Phillips kicking
off and Tecumseh punted right back. The Aggies lost
on a fumble but recovered the ball on one of Tecumseh's
passes. Finally the Aggies staged some successful line
plunges and made many good gains. Tecumseh by
means of fancy plays carried the ball into the Aggies'
territory but lost the ball on downs. During a line
plunge the Aggies fumbled but regained the ball and it
stopped in about ten yards from goal. Osbourn put
forth all he had and made a touchdown. Wheeler failed
to kick goal. The Tecumseh boys strengthened and the
Aggies failed at line plunges, but Osbourn made a place
kick. The half ended with one of Osbourn's long end
Tecumseh kicked off and Osbourn played his long
runs and he soon placed the ball in Tecumseh territory.
Osbourn made his second place kick. Then both
teams strengthened and they remained in the center of
the field for some time. Osbourn broke the spell and
he let loose with a long end run. Tecumseh gained
possession of the ball and they showed many fancy
plays but failed to make the required gains. The Aggies
regained the ball and Osbourn took it thru for another
touchdown. Wheeler kicked goal. Again the Aggies
came back with line smashes and end runs and this
placed them in the Tecumseh ground. Higgins carried
the ball to within five yards of goal and Wheeler fumbled
when Phillips gained the ball for a touchdown. Wheeler
kicked goal. Final score: Aggies 26, Tecumseh 0.
Finally the long looked for trip to Norfolk was at
hand. Our band of thirty pieces and the football men
were all on deck when the train left at 7:30 for Norfolk.
The trip was long but not tiresome, as the band kept
things moving. At Fremont the band displayed what
it knew and all of Fremont knew the Aggies were in
town. Our train left soon, so we no more than got
settled when orders were given for the team to get off
at South Norfolk and ride up to Norfolk in cars. The
band went up on the train. A small feed was given to
football men and they were immediately rushed to the
dressing quarters. All were dressed and carried to the
field in autos. Norfolk started the game by kicking to
the Aggies. The Aggies went down the field and Phillips
made our first touchdown. This surprised Norfolk and
they strengthened a little but Osbourn, after being
tackled three times, made the second touchdown. After
this Norfolk put forth still more energy and tried to
hold, but Troxel, opening up holes for Wheeler to
run, sure surprised the Norfolk boys. After the Aggies
made line plunges to a great advantage Norfolk braced
and took the ball fi om one end of the field to the other,
caging two touchdowns but failing to kick goal. The
last quarter was evenly matched and the ball was in no
one's territory when the final whistle blew. Final score:
Aggies 19, Norfolk 12.
This was not all, for in the evening a reception was
given for the boys and everyone enjoyed himself.
Every football man had a date and what's more it took
till Sunday noon to rid the town of Aggie players.
Our last game of the year was played on Thanks-
giving Day with Aurora. The Aggies went up there a
little too confident and as a result left the town with
bacon split. The Aggies could not find their old style of
playing and as a result the Aurora boys played end
runs and line smashes to a great advantage. The Aggies
seeing 7 to 0 staring at them, braced and made a
touchdown. Phillips carried the ball over and Osbourn
kicked goal. A general fight was on from then on and
the ball shifted from side to side and when the whistle
blew it was in the center of the field. Final score, 7 to 7.

an opponent's teeth.
Both sides will be frisked for weapons before the actual time of play.
Not more than twenty-one players shall loiter on the runner's face at one time.
Plows may be secured from the National Harvester Company and will- do the work
much better than the fullback's nose.
No contestant may leave the field during the time of play unless identified by some

BOYS WHO HAVE WON THE SCHOOL A, HTHE HUB ov THE WHEEI, OF SCHOOL SPIRITH
ARTHUR B. HILTNER, Coach
RALPH R0o'r, Captain
Ralph Root, right forward and captain of the team.
This was Root's second and last year on the Aggie
team. He plays a good game all the time, and stars
a good share of the time. Root is enthusiastic about
all athletics and has done a great deal for the School
along that line. His hobby, however, is basketball.

Harry Johnson CCapt-elect and One of the Best Guards
Jonnie played a fast and furious game and always
had fight until the whistle blew. Jonnie, with your
nerve and fight you should develop a strong team
next year. Go to it, the School is for you.
Linn COur Little Guard from Kimabll Countyj
Linn was our speedy little guard and could be
depended upon to stop one man and sometimes
more. Linn, if they raise basketball men out in your
county, bring some back to don an Aggie uniform.
Harrington COur Little Center from C0l0rad0D
Harrington was only 6 feet 4 inches tall and could
put the ball where no one else could reach it. He
played a good defensive game all the time. Shooting
baskets with two or three men on his back was his
Hoagland CThe "Dark Horse" of the Teamj
"Hoagie" was not recognized by the coaches as a
player until almost too late. He played a good
game at Uni. Place and kept up the good work until
the end of the season.
Harley Nelson C"Nellie," the Old Reliable Centerj
"Nellie" could hold the ball and his passes were
sure. Nellie has not a long list of goals to his
credit, but he kept his opponents on the same level.
Nellie always played a good defensive game.
L. Johnson QThe Little Shark' from Lyonsj
This is the last of the Johnsons, but not least.
E. Johnson CThe Cowpuncher from Sidneyj
Earl could play basketball when he wanted to and

should be a comer next year.
Basketball this year was very successful considering
the many things that handicapped the team. In the
first place, coaches were changed early in the season:
second, only two old men were out making about five
new men coming in, and we all know how hard it is to
work with new people, and have perfect work with only
two nights a week for practice.
The success of the season was due to coaches Hiltner
and Rutherford, who seemed never to tire of pushing
the Aggies along. They were ably assisted in this work
by Ralph Root, captain of the team. We are sorry to
hear that he will not be back next year, but we are
mighty glad to hear that a good man has been chosen
to fill his place, Harry Johnson '19. Let's hope that
all good basketball material will be back next year to
make 1918 a banner year-and Aggies, let's be ready to
give our support.
LOOKING BACK ON THE SEASON OF 1917
' The Aggies started off the season by taking on the
fast Crete five. Crete invaded our territory and they
-had a hard time carrying away the honors, as the Aggies
were almost sure to win. The first half ended in the
Aggies' favor by a three point margin. The second half
showed a spurt by the fast Crete five and Dredla, the
Crete boys' star forward, shot baskets at will. This
game was fast and free from roughness all the way
On January 18, our old friend Beatrice came sailing
into town, expecting an easy victory but to their dis-
appointment the Aggies took their measure by a lop-
sided score of 30 to 9. Beatrice played a fine game in
team work, but when it came to shooting baskets they
had nothing on the Aggies. E. Johnson easily was the
star for the Aggies.
Nebraska City Game
The next games were played away from home and
as usual when away from home the team lost. Nebraska
City was the first team to be met. The Aggies landed
strong on Nebraska City, but were unable to hold on
that account and Nebraska City won on fouls alone.
The game showed roughness and hard fighting all the
way thru. The final whistle showed the Aggies on
the short end of the rope with a score 14 to 12. H.
Johnson and Linn played a stellar guarding game for
South Omaha Game
On the following day the Aggies piled out of bed and
took a train for Omaha. They engaged rooms at the
Keen Hotel, and after lunch the bunch were busily
engaged looking at Omaha's tall buildings. When time
came the Aggies boarded a street car and invaded
South Omaha. As the Aggies were almost played out
they endeavored to play a slow game. The first half
was slow and ragged, but the last .half was fast and
furious. The Aggies piled up their score to 18 while
South Omaha had 26. The game was the roughest of
the season and only four fouls were called all thru
the game. L. Johnson played a fine guarding game for
University Place Game
After a week of strenuous basketball the Aggies
tried to stop the Uni. boys, but their team work and
close guarding were almost perfect. The Aggies played
a slow game as a result of four previous games the week
before. The score stood l6 to 5 in University Place's
The Senior class team showed their talent by defeat-
ing the Sophomores and Freshmen. The games were
attended by a good sized crowd from each class, and
class yells and spirit were ata high pitch. The Shorthorns
were out in good style and after the Seniors had
played two games previous the Shorthorn team took
them into camp by a large score.
University Place at University Place
After the defeat by University Place once the Aggies
were determined to win, so into University Place they
went accompanied by a large delegation of rooters. The
game started and the Aggies were in the lead thruout
the battle. One time during the game the Uni. boys
tied our score but three baskets followed in quick
succession and the Aggies kept well out of danger. The
final whistle showed the score 26 to 18. This was the
first time in five years that the Aggies won a game
away from home.
Lincoln Game '
The first time in history the Aggies picked up nerve
and met the Lincoln five. The first half was slow and
Lincoln played all the game. The second half stood to
show what the Aggies could do. By close guarding and
good basket shooting the Aggies climbed up and set the
score 27 to 16. -A crowd that was hardly ever equalled
at varsity games was out to witness this battle. Both
of the school bands were out and the spirit that makes
a school was sure shown there.
Fairbury High School
Fairbury seems to like to take a drubbing from the
Aggies, for they were beaten in football and suffered a
great loss by the Aggies basketball team. The Aggies
were never in danger and the score stood 30 to 0 in
their favor. Harrington and H. Johnson played a
stellar game of basketball.
The Norfolk boys defeated University Place the
Friday before our game and they thought that the Aggies'
game would be easy. They sure thought differently
after a few minutes of play. The Aggies started scoring
and kept the lead for a while. Then Norfolk spurted
and led the Aggies by one basket. The lead was not
kept long, as the Aggies soon overcame it and kept it
till the final whistle blew. The final score stood 20 to
16. The Aggie team as a whole played a splendid game

SHORT COURSE: COMMITTEE
JOHN DALE J. B. Hormocxs O. w. ARMSTRONG
-H lliillklii ' li
Zllibe winter Clinurse
One hundred-sixty "sons of the soil" and sons of "sons of the soil" who were eager to absorb all the scientific
methods of agriculture possible in six weeks, appeared on the University State Farm Campus January 2. One woman
also registered for the course. Thevmen were of all ages, from sixteen to the age indefinite.
The first day, registration, finding room and board, and sightseeing took all our time. Several Shorthorns found
it difficult to find the place to register, but very few had any difficulty in discovering the treasurer's office.
The Shorthorns had the distinction of being the first students to have classes in the new Dairy Industry building.
Here Prof. Filley gave his series of lectures on Farm Management. He taught us the proper methods of putting the
farm on a business basisg how to compute the cost of productiong what to debit and credit the farmg and how to manage
the numerous marketing problems. His lectures made one realize that farming is a real business proposition. Numerous
farm surveys wherein the business side of farming had been thoroly investigated made Prof. Filley especially competent
to give this series of lectures.
Prof. Hopt was our instructor in Crops. Here we found a man of the "rapid-fire" nature who never lost any
time in introductory remarks, a man who always took up each lecture exactly where he left off with the preceding
one. Prof. Hopt knew of the varied climatic and soil conditions of Nebraska in their relation to crops. He presented
his subjects in a way that appealed to the practical farmer. The open discussion of the subject by the students should
be especially mentioned. Interesting and valuable points were thus brought out. It was always a pleasure to attend
this class. Q
Prof. Young gave us a series of lectures on Soil, which dealt with the everyday problems regarding the relation
of soil to crop production. He gave a brief survey of the different soils of Nebraska, the subject of soil moisture, soil
erosion, drainage and irrigation, and such problems.
Prof. Bruner came before us with many apologies as to the sanity C23 of the "Bug-man." After a few lectures
however, we realized that the "Bug-men " were rendering the human race, and especially the farmers, a service for which
they should be given higher recognition . He gave us many interesting and valuable facts about the life and the
control of insects. We all wished that we could have heard more of his lectures.
Prof. Wilcox seemed to be cut for a chautauqua rather than a class room lecturer. His lectures on Plant
Pathology seemed chiefiy to be based on a plant known as the "Nebraska Gink." This plant seems to be afiiicted
with a disease of not being able to distinguish between common things and higher artsg of not knowing how to properly
spend his moneyg and of always wanting "something for nothing." For example, he mentioned a case of a Gink who
wrote in for information that would require ten dollars worth of work to obtain and enclosed a stamped envelope for
a reply, After going over the shortcomings of the "Nebraska Gink" the professor showed us several lantern slides of
other plants, their diseases, and then gave us literature on the methods of controlling these diseases. On the whole
his lectures were very interesting f?J and rather restful, as they were quite a change from our daily work,
'A lffllllx li is
Prof. Dixon spoke chiefly on Chickens, basing his lectures on the utility side of the subject. He covered each
point clearly and thoroly. If any came from his lectures without getting a touch of "chicken fever" they must. have
slept thru the entire period. Some misunderstood him, however, when he invited us to go and sec thc chickens.
A number of the boys went down town. -
Fruit Growing, Vegetable Growing, Ornamentation of the Home Grounds, and Forestry were covered by
Professors Howard, Hood, and Nicolet. They covered their subject by lectures and the use of lantern slides, bringing
out some very interesting points. .
The Dairy work opened the eyes of a good many students, as the profit, pleasure and possibility of this industry
in Nebraska is greater than one imagines. The work was covered by lectures, demonstrations and trips thru the dairy
barn. We were convinced that this industry is going to make a rapid growth in this state.
Doctor Gain took up the subject of Animal Pathology. While he could not cover much of this subject during.,
the six weeks, he discussed the cause and prevention of digestive troubles-the teeth, contagious diseases, and emerg-
The subject of Animal Husbandry covered ten hours per week of judging and four hours of the care, management,
and feeding of live stock. In the judging work the students were given the chance to place the animals and then the
instructor led an open discussion. More knowledge was obtained in this class than in any subject we were taught.
Assistant Professor Warner held a meat-cutting demonstration during one period.
The subject of Agricultural Engineering was conducted by Prof. Baer and Mr. Reynolds. They lectured on
the subjects of Woodwork, Use of Tools, and Blacksmithing.
Prof. Gramlich had charge of the subject of Feeding. All questions were thoroly discussed: Much interest
was shown in this class. Q '
Taking the course thruout very little can be said in the way of unfavorable criticism. All of the lectures
were clear and to the point,-covering only that which interested the practical farmer.
The instructors were always willing to answer any questions we might ask at any time. All of the regular
students tried to make us feel at home.
We first realized we were in the "limelight" when a number of Senior girls invaded our class room, armed with
basketball Senior tickets. We had not considered basketball as yet, but could not withstand the attack of the ambitious
and willing Seniors. We duly purchased the tickets. A
One student became so enthusiastic over Agriculture Engineering that he asked the Principal if he might take
a course in "forgery." The student escaped.
Prof. Gain -"Boys, on Saturday afternoon we will take up rope splicing and knots, etc. Don't make any dates
for that time." V
Student-"Can't we bring our girls up here?"
Prof.-"Sure thing-they're always interested in the right kind of a knot."
Prof. Hopt-"Why is northwestern Nebraska warmer than northeastern Nebraska?"
Baboon-"Because it is closer to the equator."
Prof. Bruner-"Now how many know how a chinch bug tastes?"
"Well it tastes just like a bedbug, so now I suppose you all know how it tastes."
"Millionaire", with his fur cap, doesn't seem to appreciate the honor bestowed upon him by the frequent
applauding of his worthy colleagues.
Rowdyism and Agriculture are not synonymous according to Prof. Wilcox. However, the statement was not
made until the last week of the term.
The Shorthorns adopted the bandana handkerchief as the flag most becoming to the "sons of the soil."
Somebody must have inoculated the Shorthorns with college spirit, as they appeared in class room with handker-
chiefs around their necks and an unintelligible yell that ended "Yea Bo! Yea Bo! Yea Bo!" l
No. Those Shorthorns who are yelling aren't doing it under the impression that they're driving cattle. They're
only trying to imitate the cadets answering the roll call.
W9'll admit it WHS Quite 2 t9mPti1ti0N to keep from scratching our heads when Prof. Bruner was telling about lice.
SHORT COURSE BASKETBALL TEAM
This is the first year the Winter Course has picked out a basketball team from
among its' members. The team played in the inter-class games and won from
the Seniors, who had previously defeated the other classes of the school. It all
goes to show what pep and practice can do.

THE QUICK-WITTED WAITER '
A downtown restaurant has made its reputation
upon one waiter who was never yet found wanting to
translate an order into a language of his own, and he
and the cook understand each other perfectly.
"One order of pea soup," one customer will say.
"A plash of split peas," cries the waiter.
"Couple of doughnuts and a cup of coffee, without
cream," another will order.
"Two submarines and a mug of murk-no cow!"
orders the waiter.
"An order of ham and eggs," says the customer.
"Roast two on a slice of squeal!" the waiter shouts.
"Beef stew and a cup of tea for me," says a new
"Bossy in a bowl-boiled leaves on the side!" sings
"A dozen raw oysters," orders a busy business man.
"Twelve alive in the shell!" shouts the waiter.
"Where's my eggs on toast?" complains a man
who has been waiting. '
"Rush the biddies on a raft!" cries the waiter.
"I want a rump steak rare," orders another man.
"Slab of moo-let him chew it!" the waiter calls.
"I want a bowl of tomato soup," ordered one man,
"a plate of beans, bread and butter, a piece of apple
pie, and a glass of water."
The waiter seemed puzzled for an instant: then he
shouted into the tube as follows:
"One splash of red noise, platter of Saturday nights,
dough well done with cow to cover, Eve with a lid on,
and a chaser of Adam's ale!"
"Everett," said his mother sternly, "you should not
fight with that Nicholson boy."
"I know it, ma," said Everett penitently.
"That's right, and when did you find it out?"
"About a minute after I hit him."
'Neta-"Did you ever read 'Looking Backward?"'
Dorothea-"Yes, once. In a test and I nearly got
canned for it."

A few days ago a prominent young man took his
best girl a bouquet of fiowers. The young woman' was
so pleased that she threw her arms around his neck and
kissed him. He rose and started to go.
"I'm sorry I offended you, Dick," she said.
"Oh, I'm not offended, Happy," he replied, "I was
just going back after more flowers."

Zin Qlllnsing we wish Ulu Sap Zllibis
We know there will be mistakes in this book, and we expect, even tho we dread, criticism.
We shall not apologize for anything, for we have done the best we could-and one's best needs
no apology. Our most sincere hope is that this book will be to each who owns one a pleasant
reminder of days spent at the S. of A. in 1916-17.
We wish to thank all those people with whom we have had business relations for the kind-
ness and courtesy shown us. We also wish to mention especially the kind assistance given us in
the preparation of SHUCKS, by Mr. W. W. Marshall and Mr. L. Husted. I
It's been a lot of work,
But it's been a lot of fung
Now we bid you all farewell
And thank goodness, we are done!
