KMM —37— m When Chancellor Avery accepted a major- ity in the army, his position was left vacant. The regents elected Dean Hastings of the Law College to the position of acting chan- cellor during the ah:ence of Chancellor Avery. The war conditions of the University were very difficult, and much credit should he given to Dean Hastings for the excellent manner in which he handled the situation. The stand taken hy Dean Hastings on the situation of securing uniforms for the S. A. T. C. won for him the esteem of the student hody. Among the officers detailed to the S. A. T. C. unit at the University of Nebraska was Lieut. Geo. N. Foster. At the time the United States entered into the war, Foster was a professor in the College of Law at the University. He entered a training camp and received a commission in the Person- nel department, being detai led to the S. A. T. C. His work here was very efficiently executed. At the close of the war, he was discharged and he has again taken up his duties in the Law College. PROF. GEO. R. CHATBURN At the entrance of the United States into the war, there immediately came a great de- mand for college-trained men far officers. This demand was so great that educators thruout the country feared the colleges would soon be depleted of men. Professor Chatburn foresaw the conditions that were rapidly ap- proaching and became the early advocater of the " Enlistment of the College Man and De- tailing Him Back to College for Training. " At a convention of waif officials and edu- cators, to which Professor Chatburn was a representative, the S. A. T. C. was organized and adopted by the War department. To Professor Chatburn goes the credit of securing and directing of the S. A. T. C. at the University of Nebraska. —38— a T ii-19l9:g j Cdi fcSsker Capt. Uuck The establishment of the S. A. T. C. at the University necessitated the assignment of officers to this unit. Capt. E. J. Mclvor was assigned as commandant and remained in charge until the middle of November, when he was withdrawn and succeeded by Capt. Leslie Drake, who presided until the demobilization of the unit. Upon the Headquarters Staff were Captain Buck, Medical department ; Lieutenant Hotch- kiss, Quartermaster department ; Lieutenant Aldritt, Dental department, and Lieutenant O ' Neill, Adjutant. During the influenza epidemic at the unit. Captain Buck extended every effort to check the spread of the disease, keeping the men in the best possible physical condition. The enlistment in the S. A. T. C. was much larger than expected, therefore the work of the headquarters was greatly hampered. How- ever, the situation was met very well by the construction of additional barracks and equip- ment, and the headquarters should receive some credit for the success of the S. A. T. C. Capt.

Orders were sent to each company for men that could play instruments, and the organization of a forty-piece military band was soon brought about. Professor Quick was made instructor and, under his efforts, an excellent band was trained. Nebraska University has always held the record of having one of the best college bands in the west, and the S. A. T. C. band upheld this standard. Besides their duties in the S. A. T. C, they were an attraction at the football games and all other University functions. When the S. A. T. C. was mustered out of service, the ranks of the band were greatly depleted, but with the return of many students, this difficulty was overcome, and the University still has an excellent musical organizaion 41 1 919 1 |, Cdi fcsifcgf[ j i Companp Lieutenant Bassett, Company Commander Meyer Beber, First Sergeant Sergeants ' G. E. Pratt B. R. Tool C. E. Allen Cullen Root A. L. Jenson QCIje tubent rmp draining Corpg At the entrance of the United States into the war, April 1917, there immediately came a great demand for college-trained young men for ofincers. So great was this demand that educators throughout the country feared the col- leges would soon be depleted of all physically fit students and became greatly alarmed lest the schools would have to go out of business. Many school men especially from the endowed colleges in the east, rushed to the Govern- ment with plans for the exemption of college students. As a result, deferred classification was granted to students pursuing certain technical hues of work, such as chemistry and engineering, the completion of which was of more importance to the Governn ent than immediate entrance into military service. But for keeping up the attendance of the schools this proved to be a failure. The young men being red-blooded and patriotic refused to accept exemption; they did not even desire it; they wished to avoid the very appearance of being slackers, and the quicker they could get to pumping cold lead into the Huns the better they would be pleased. (On the other hand, there were many —42— • m ffir-i9ig g LCahSkttsiei- felS —43— G a in[5 " i9i9: i — " — -- Companp Lieutenant Sundstrom, Company Commander Orville Ellerbrock, First Sergeant Sergeants Kenneth Hawkins Ralph Ford Lawrence Metzger Floyd Paynter Sam Brownell educators who would not think of asking exemption for their students. The writer was one who early advocated the " enlistment of the college man and the detailing of him back to college for special training. " All this agitation brought strongly to the attention of the Government the needs of the schools; meantime the War Department saw in their organizations the machinery ready at hand for the training of industrial technicians who were greatly needed in the army. A committee consisting of representatives of various branches of the war service and civilian educators was appointed to organize and administer this work. Contracts were entered into for the utilization of the organization, plant and equipment of the several colleges; also for the housing and subsistence of the soldier students under most rigid sanitarv regulations. The instruction thus contracted for was largely along industrial lines and later became Section B of the S. A. T. C. It proved to be so satisfactory that the Government thought it worth while to expand the scheme so as to take in all university men- There were, therefore, estab- lished in colleges registering 100 or more men, units of the S. A. T. C. proper. Under the regulations selected, young men who where physically fit for mili- tary service, IS years of age or over, and had been accepted as students in a m ' » 5 1 CdUkkb or Company P ' f ' - U H i Hi i y Ti illi is jfife ' i. -45- j]8i CatSteiskgi- G.

Blain college requiring a high school preparation or its equivalent for entrance, were to be allowed voluntarily to enlist in the S. A. T. C. and thus to become bona fide soldiers of the United States. Before this could go into effect, however, the draft age was lowered to 18 years, but the War Department wished to continue S. A. T. C. for registrants because the Government looking ahead to the possibility of a long war needed trained men to fill important positions in the army, and later, educated men to carry on the work of readjustment after the fighting had stopped. The colleges having units of the S. A, T. C. were, in other words, to serve as reservoirs from which a constant supply of officer material could be drawn as needed. They furnished splendid places for the trying out of these men. Arrangements were under way for psychological examinations which would determine the character of work for which the student soldier was best fitted, and his future training was to be modified accordingly. In order to popularize the movement and.indiyre young men to offer them- selves for voluntary induction, it was decided that a publicity campaign should be inaugurated. This was assigned to the American Council on Education, an organization composed of some twenty national educational associations 5 ($ -46— .5 rt6r,»4 ¥«»-- -. :•-:• %iL j»Jt «J S Lr- ' ffilj 41. iulHtJ —47— ejl 115 919 1 , Coi ditislsei ' I Companp M Lieutenant Glass, Company Commander Paul Seidel, First Sergeant Sergeants Robt.

The council made an estimate of the probable enrollment, distributed this to the several states and began a drive to secure the students. The estimate for the whole United States was 111,097; for Nebraska, 1,752. The actual enrollment was in excess of 250,000 and 2,500 respectively, of which about 1,500 were in the University of Nebraska. When the students came in at the opening of school, it was necessary to arrange for their housing and subsistence with the greatest dispatch possible. The new Social Science building, though uncompleted, and the Armory were transformed into barracks; at the state farm two large wooden buildings were constructed for the same purpose; Nebraska Hall was continued as barracks for Section B ; while commodious mess halls were constructed and operated on each campus, with T. A. Williams, Student Activities Agent, in charge. Theoretically the time of the soldier was to be divided between " educa- tional " and " military " work so that the former should receive 42 hours per week as follows : War Aims, three hours recitation, six hours study ; free elective, three hours recitation, six hours study; the other 24 hours out of the 42 to be selected from the following allied subjects: English, French, German, f —48— i if wrr ' i9i9W... :m coHiKsswis : —49— w ' . ■ ' - ' Fh-i ■Jt .t-.J ' s.-.rfL Companp 3 Lieutenant Goodell, Company Commander Stanley Hall M.

This was considered to be sufficiently liberal for most any class of university students. The military authorities had charge of the students the remainder of the time and were to give technical military instruc- tion and drill about six hours per week. During the summer and fall the personnel of the military staff underwent many changes. The first commanding officer was Capt. E. E. Wheeler; he was followed by Capt. E. J. Mclvor; and he, in turn, by Capt. L. G. Drake. 1st Lieut. D. B. Miller was Adjutant to Capt. Wheeler and for a time acting commanding officer; 2d Lieut. F. J.

C. move- ment will be, written by someone capable of setting forth its good and bad points in a systematic, concise manner. Nebraska will then be proud of the fact that she had a part in it, that she rendered every help possible to make a success of the greatest educational experiment ever attempted, an experiment stopped by a great world blessing, the signing of the armistice. Organization had not been completed ; military men inexperienced or not wholly in sympathy with the educational side were in command ; and the influenza epidemic and various other causes prevented a fair try-out. Educators, as a rule, were glad to give it up, but some there are who yet believe there is much good in the principle of having students, especially in the lower classes, under rigid dis- cipline ; that eventually the dormitory system will take the place of the military barracks and that facilities for supervised study will greatly enhance the effi- ciency of our educational institutions, that, though seemingly put to death by the ending of the war, its good points may still live and influence the world ' s education for all time to come.

J. Morrison, Field Artillery. He is the highest rank- mg officer that has ever been on duty at the University, and this assign- ment IS a compliment to the Military department of Nebraska With the comnig of the colonel, the Military department begins a new era which will doubtless surpass the pre-war record. Colonel Morrison is a western product, and western trained He was born at Iowa City, Iowa, February 6, 1881, and attended the public schools there. He entered the University of Iowa in 1896, attending two .years, and leavmg there to accept an appointment to the United States Mili- .• tary Academy m 1898. A graduate of the Academy in 1902, he was assigned as a second lieutenant in the Artillery Corps. In 1907, he was attached to the Field Artillery arm and raised to the grade of first lieutenant Field ' ' Artillery. In 1912, he was raised to the rank of captain, Field Artillery ' and at the opening of the war in 1917, he was raised to the grade of major Field • Artillery. In August of the same year, he was transferred to the National Army as a heutenant-colonel, and June, 1918. he was again raised, attaining his present rank of Colonel, Field Artillery. The record of rapid promotion indicates the scope of Colonel Morrison ' s abilities. The particular aptitude of the colonel for instruction work is well ■ indicated in his assignments. He graduated in 1905 from the School of Application of Cavalry and Field Artillery, Fort Riley, Kansas. He com- pleted the School of Fire for Field Artillery at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in 1912. In the interim. 1906 to 1910, he was detailed as instructor in the Department of Philosophy at the United States Military Academy hold- ing the position of assistant professor from 1909 to 1910 He was the in- structor, Mil.tia Course, for the School of Fire, Field Artillery in 19P During the war period, he held the positions of instructor, assistant directo ' r and director at the School of Fire. In this work, he instructed in the Departments of Firing, Topography and Reconnaissance. In addition to these various assignments, he has twice been on active service in the Philippines and has been stationed at nearly all the important military posts in this country. Vith the personality of Colonel Morrison in the department and his very able ability and qualifications for the work of the R O T C Nebras ka may well look forward to a successful future along military lines m -57- e0 i9i9 ii , C tetskey sigisitant Commanbants; CAPTAIN C. J. FRANKFORTER Captain Frankforter, Chemical Warfare Serv- ice, was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. October 30, 1885. In 1903, he attended the University of Ne- braska, where he received the degrees of B. Sc. and A, M. He was then assistant professor in chemistry until August, 1917, when he entered the Second Officers Training Camp at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. After receiving his commission as captain, he was transferred to Camp Grant, Illi- nois. In March, he was made acting battalion commander in the 341st Infantry. He was then appointed as co mmanding officer of Company A, 311th Military Police, 86th Divisipn, Camp Grant. Illinois. On July 3, he reported to the Edgewood Arsenal. Maryland. From here, he was trans- ferred to the University of Nebraska as professor of military science and immediately began the re- habilitation of the R. O. T. C. To the work of Captain Frankforter is due the good start that the Military department had after the episode of the S. A. T. C. CAPTAIN C. M. HARRIS Captain Harris received his first military training while attending Louisiana State Uni- versity. , He spent a year at the United States Military Academy and for the next three years was a lieutenant with the Philippine Scouts. He was commissioned captain of cavalry in April, 1917. In October, he was transferred to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where he remained until his transfer to the R. O. T. C. at the University of Nebraska. CAPTAIN J. G. FAES Captain Faes was a member of the Nebraska National Guard from January, 1914, to October. 1917. In June, 1916, he went to the Mexican border, as first sergeant in the F ' ourth Nebraska Infantry. He was commissioned first lieutenant of the National Guards in August, 1916. At Fort Sill, Oklahoma, he was commissioned first lieutenant in Oc- tober, 1916. At the School of Fire for Field Artillery he was commissioned captain. CAPTAIN BRIAN O ' BRIAN Captain O ' Brian attended the University of Nebraska from 1914 to 1917. On May 15, he en- tered the Officers ' Training Camp at Fort Snell- ing, Minnesota, and was commissioned as first lieutenant. Field Artillery, in August. At Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where he was instructor, he was promoted to captain. Field Artillery. He was then transferred to the University of Nebraska. Field Artillery unit. LIEUTENANT W. G.

At no time since its early history has the spirit of the Pershings been better. The competition each year has been keen and the selection of the past year has only amplified the con- test for places on the crack company. The history of the Pershing Rifles dates back to the time when our great mili- tary leader. General John J. Pershing, was commandant at Nebraska. The spirit of the Military " department dates from then. For, on September 25, 1891, Lieutenant Pershing reported for duty, bringing with him that ability and enthusiasm that was to completely change the Military Department of Nebraska. From the very first, the new commandant instilled into the cadets an appreciation of discipline and accomplish- ment. The commandant soon knew the personnel of the cadet regiment minutely and with this knowledge the following year we find the University entering a crack company, Company A, in the grand National Competitive Drill, which was held in Omaha. This Company had been picked with care; with a care that only a hard-working and well- informed officer could apply. Pershing was determined to have the best drilled com- pany in the competition and so infectious was his energy and enthusiasm that early in the morning before classes and after dinner in the evening, found the pride of the department at work. The first public appearance of the Pershing Rifles, then known as the Varsity Rifles, is a piece of familiar Nebraska tradition. The Varsity Rifles took part in both the " Grand National " and the " Maiden, " and failed in the former simply because they drew first place. However, they were successful in the latter and, as a result, drew .$1,500 and the Omaha cup. The entire state was swept with admiration for these achieve- ments, and Pershing had won his first battle. From that day to this, the Pershing Rifles, for the name " Varsity Rifles " was short lived, due to the appreciation of the man who had made them successful, have been the honor of the Military department. Competition is the basis of membership, and the cadets are only too glad to accept any place, however humble, in order to be a member. -60— jej) TSe l919 ' ;:ii I ifle v.

The part of America in this war is one the entire nation likes to look back upon with pride. The University of Nebraska looks back with perhaps more pride than average for her members and former members have done a lion ' s share of work. With war and its demands, the eyes of the world rested upon America to see whether or not she could deliver. And Amer- ica, taking stock of herself, knew that the question was not, " Can I de- liver? " but was, " How much more can I deliver than is expected of me? " To all the students and grads of the University of Nebraska this appeal came and the way was cleared for a " Rush Order " from Nebraska. The ones who, while at college, had put their faith and work in the creed of preparedness were in a position to make the delivery a good one. The result of the hours of pavement pounding and squads right and that unconscious obeying of commands that instilled discipline, was to make the former cadet in a far better position to give all his abilities than the man bf equal ability who had not passed through the rudimentary training. And so -the Military department points with pride to the number of stars in the college service flag that owe their early training and no small part of their success to the Military department of the University. A glance at the names and ranks of those who three or four short years ago were the cadet officers and non-coms and privates will serve better than any other argument for the success of military drill in college. It is with this background of accomplishment that the new Military department is being built. The war has completely erased the organiza- tion of yesterday and in its place a new and stronger system is being built. While the war erased the organization, it also erased that petty prejudice that had so forcefully and so continuously hindered the growth of the department. That misinformation, or lack of information, that has in the past caused people to unthinkingly condemn that which they do not under- stand, has been done away with and in the light of accomplishment their doubts are scattered. The work of war has added to the public senti- ment back of the Military department. Its friends are firmer for having seen their contentions proven, its enemies are fewer, and the great mass of uninformed who looked with disfavor upon its work has dwindled and made place for the more friendly element. With a new start, public opinion behind and much at hand to accom- plish before, the Military department, with a corps of instructors never before equalled and a spirit never excelled, will build on the foundations of achievement, a stronger structure than before. 1 . —64— % Reverently we lift the IDEA from its musty, dusty hiding place in Nebraska ' s attic of memories. We blow the cob-webbed accumulations of years from its dissembled parts. In our diligent search we find portions of this hallowed symbol of the institution ' s life, hidden in forgotten and forsaken crannies — rusting and rotting from non- use. Other bits we find have been carefully preserved in the lavender of the yearly calendar — only to be brought forth on gala occasions for a brief period of hom- age and then laid away until another twelfth month rolls around. We have assembled the scattered por- tions. We have brought together the little bits that have fallen by the wayside in the triumphant march of the years. Patiently we have fitted the parts together. And now the Cornhusker presents them to you, students, alumni, faculty and friends of the University. May they arouse in you the sympathetic response that the portraits of your mother instigates. May the picture of them revive tender, haunt- ing memories of your University Life. And when you have gone over them one M Cnrnkiiskofi Tf Mofl • -65— CoPSksSkoi- by one may your Idea of the Traditions of your University be merged into a deeper love and reverence for your Alma Mater. You say — What is this IDEA appelled Traditions? It is an illusive thing which may not be confined to a definition, but might be ensnared in reminiscent metaphor. Tradition has the same intangible rela- tion to an institution that age has for the Bacchusian delights of old wine. The rarity of its value depends upon its num- bered days. Time furnishes the essence of the color — the sparkle the haunting memory, which both enjoy. To be sure definitions have been approached. A scientist might dub it the evolution of an event. The rhetorician might insist it, the poetic expression of a repetitive idea. An artist might appel it in terms of a colorful portrayal of a concrete subject. The engineer would say it was the show display of the working plans of the insti- tution. The home economist finds it the syn- thesis of college ingredients. The agriculturist would define it as the fertile part of college life containing ele- ments which are conducive to the growth of college spirit. But to the University of Nebraska stu- dent — whether living on the campus or continuing studies in the school of experi- ence — the idea, College Traditions, is the binding string that holds the Nebraskan heart to its Alma Mater. The exigencies of the past year — the war program of the University — the up- heaval of all routine and traditional pro- ( —66- 1 B i ■qM W-1919 ' S m I grams, has made the celebration of most of the special occasions endeared in the collective heart of the University, impos- sible. To the first year students on the Cam- pus, university life has meant little more than an attendance to classes. Even second year students are stunted in their appreciation of true college spirit. They have scarcely witnessed enough of the traditional exercises of the campus to inoculate them from the same idea, that the Campus is a place where one attends classes. They have not breathed in the elements that form the basis of college atmosphere. They have not been made aware of the compounds which have made the insti- tution what it is today. Of course S. A. T. C. could find no place for Olympics, and traditional caps for the Freshmen this year. Uncle Sam ' s khaki would book no intrusion of the verdant green upon its claim for popularity. Nor could military discipline find a place for interclass scraps. There was one para- mount issue before all students. That was to win the war. All energies — efforts — enthusiam was placed at the service of that idea. War impetus necessitated the sweeping aside of class — aye — even school spirit. The Farmers ' Fair was a luxury which the University gave up as a conservation measure last year. Also the tradition of University Week which was designed to take a little college life over the State of its birth. Home Coming Day last fall became just an open house for Fraternity members. It made a nice little week-end party, but scarcely quickened the general campus pulse. With four thousand of the Nebras- ka boys in service a home-coming spirit I, CofSkSsketr ' B ' ltloft —67- li CMSfeaskei " TrodMott v ci ' ' « .-. could scarcely pervade the halls in which they once dwelt. Most of the spring festivities were held after a fashion during the 1918 season. Ivy Day was the great impressive event of the year. The military spirit was domi- nant to be sure, and the great service flag vied with the queen for homage, but the traditions of the day were maintained. The Senior picnic and Phi Beta Kappa Day were held as usual. But the martial drums of war drowned their sweet toned chimes of the festive season and only the few were cognizant of their happenings. The spring of 1919 will be kinder and the mellowed traditions will once again be heard. Charter Day — this time a semi-centen- nial celebration — will ring the bells of the golden anniversary of the institution in May. The Cornhusker banquet experi- enced a resurrection in its old familiar form. University Week will again gladden the hearts of communities and quicken the drowsy pulse of the State where the carrying forces of the University would not otherwise circulate. Ivy Day, Fete Day, the Senior picnic, Phi Beta Kappa Day, Compet with its accompanying shirt tail parade will again grace the Campus. With their return will come the old glow that has come to its Halls of Learning. With them will come the old expression of love and rev- erence for our College Halls, with them will come the chords of harmony and union that attune the heart of the Ne- braskan forever. I —68- " Olympics " is an artificial name which was dedicated by Professor Bessey to the annual class scrap between the Freshmen and the Sophomores of the University. The school is indebted to Professor Condra for successfully organizing and carrying into effect the plans of the first class scrap in the fall of 1906. Up to the year 1906 there had been only athletics to awaken the spirit of theCorn- husker men, and it was a common sight in those days to see two or three Sopho- mores wait for an innocent Freshman and assail him, pull several buttons from his vest, run away and call the incident a fight. Several upper classmen asked Dr. Condra to help them put a stop to these unsportsmanlike acts. As a consequence a free-for-all scrap between the classes was suggested to settle all disputes. A Committee composed of members from the Senior and Junior classes was appointed to establish the contest. Judges and referees were picked, whose duty it was to look after the fairness of the fight and decide on the winning side. The Committee chose a day in November on which the event would be staged. School was dismissed the day on which the Olympics took place. Two opposing lines were formed, one Sophomore and one Freshman. A pistol was fired and the two lines rushed together, grappling with one another. Soon they separated into groups of twos and threes. Bull-pens had been provided in which the men were taken when they were captured by the other side. On account of the large num- ber of Freshmen, they finally defeated the Sophomores after a hard fight. Persons who have witnessed class scraps since I; CoiSfcaStGi- ■ ItodMoA — 9— Tig 1919 [gg TrodMoii m I C P kaskei ' j J5 then claim that the first fight has been the best one up to the present day. In the last few years the Olympics have been modified and several different ath- letic stunts have been added to the origi- nal program. Slugging, which marked the first fight, has been barred. The contest- ants on either side have the same number of men. Pushball, boxing, wrestling and the pole-rush have been introduced to make the event more exciting and inter- esting. The results from this first event were so encouraging that it was given a place in the traditions and has grown in size each year until it now holds one of the highest places among school festivities. Boxing and wrestling are direct outgrowths from Olympics. The men of each class were seen in their true colors, and several athletes who have attained gridiron fame were first noticed by the coaches, because of the ability they displayed in partici- pating in this event. The Innocents were first organized to take care of the Olympics and in later years they have gradually come into con- trol of all the school festivities. This annual get together for all class scraps is probably one of the best means of getting the boys acquainted and also it instills in them that spirit which every student should have; to honor and love the U. of N. first, last and forever. The last class scrap was held in 1917 and the Freshmen were whipped for the first time in years. They were forced to wear the green caps, the punishment in- flicted on the Freshmen class if they are beaten. This idea was taken from the Eastern colleges whose traditions require the wearing of green caps by all Freshmen. The system of Olympics as carried on by the Nebraska Uni versity has been copied by Universities and High Schools from the east and west part of the country. This is one of the most successful stunts ever put on by the student body in the way of promoting the school spirit. a —70— tj m Jf armers jf air The Farmers Fair was given a place in the university traditions by the school of Agriculture in the spring of 1916. The first ideas and fundamentals of the fair came from the University of Missouri, where it has grown in size and importance year after year. Towns people and farm- ers from different parts of the state at- tend the Missouri fair by the thousands and it is claimed that the fair is the best advertising means enjoyed by the uni- versity. Committees for the Nebraska 1916 fair were appointed and organized in May. On the Fourth of April work was com- menced and the farm campus was trans- formed from a scholarly atmosphere to a world of frenzied barkers, nature ' s freaks, acrobats and brass bands. The fair was held on the tenth of April. The farm buildings, class rooms and lab- oratories were thrown open to the inspec- tion of the visitors and many took advan- tage of the opportunity to become ac- quainted with the farm work. Professors explained the utility and purpose of the different departments. The Home Economics Girls supplied the visitors with sandwiches and pink lemon- ade and had on display some of their products. The fair was one of the most successful events of the school year considered not alone from the financial and educational side, but it indirectly brought the people of the state into direct contact with the work of the University. The interest the people of the state took in the Agriculture college as a result of this fair is shown by the fact that the fol- —71— I CdPt SSkBTJ M lowing fall a great increase in the number of students enrolled in the School of Agri- culture was noted. The Agriculture college is growing rap- idly, and to awaken our rural population to the value of the college and higher education, this fair serves as one of the best instruments in bringing the tax payers of the state into direct touch with the university work. This service is of the greatest importance to the University as a large per cent of all students come from the farm and should this tradition die out, without any effort on the student or faculty part, it will be considered a hin- drance to the complete success of the Agriculture College. —7a— 1 1919 jgg llomecomms Bap Homecoming day. The very words stimulate a glowing warmth about the heart regions. They sound cozy and hos- pitable and intimate. They whisper of eternal friendships and everlasting mem- ories. They carry with them a welcome — a warm hand clasp — a responsive sym- pathy. Their very innotation brings to mind the words of Browning: Come back with me to the first of all, Let us lean and love it over again, Let us now forget and now recall. Break the rosary in a pearly rain, And gather what we let fall! Thus the day means a time of retrospec- tion. It is the day when Nebraska ' s stu- dents go back and gather up the broken and lost threads of friendship. It sets aside a time for reunions about the cam- pus hearth. Long separated friends meet again at the same board and once more break bread together. Active students exert themselves in providing as big a taste of the old " U " spirit as the alumni Husker lover can swallow in one day. Homecoming day usually falls in Nov- ember, when the frost is on the pumpkin and the football team ' s in trim. The first official day with the banquet and every- thing was held November 6, 1912. There were 2000 visitors to enjoy the day-long program prepared through the efforts of G. W. Kline of the State Alumni associ- ation. The Olympics were staged in the morning and the Kansas-Nebraska game booked for the afternoon. 500 attended the banquet in the evening. —73- CSRifaiskei- Mr. T. F. A.

The Iowa-Nebraska game was held in the afternoon per schedule, but a mixed and varied program was planned for the evening. At seven o ' clock there were a band concert and fire- works. At eight dancing began in the Armory. The old gym was decorated in corn stalks and pumpkins for the occas- ion. 200 gallons of cider were consumed that night, along with barrels and barrels of apples, and bushels and bushels of doughnuts. At the same time the faculty were hold- ing a reception in Art Hall and refresh- ments were served there also. A moving picture show was staged, showing films of the Lincoln pageant and pictures of vari- ous activities on the campus. Over in the Temple Theatre there was more dancing in the various halls and the Dramatic Club staged " Believe Me, Xantippe " to all that could be packed into the Temple Theatre. It was a most gala occasion, and the 2000 and more visitors who represented seventy-five of the ninety-three counties of the state felt the strings that bound —74— G ) TfgU9lQ; II their hearts to their University vibrate with a new thrill. It was their school. They knew it, for they could return there and find a welcome as they could return home and find a ready chair. During the fall of 1918, there was no real homecoming celebration. The many vacant chairs that must have been would have robbed the day of its joy. One did not have to journey to the campus to send his thoughts to France. To be sure the day was observed in name. All of the fraternities held open house for any that might have been drawn back to the old haunts by the succession of the sea- sons. But at best it was a sad homecom- ing. The men on the campus were in barracks. The girls were in their last season ' s suits. There was only the elo- quent service flag to greet the home- comer in many, many places. Even some of the old professors were not at their posts. The war had called them for a greater service. There was no time for refreshments and dances and festivals. But next year! Then our soldier lads will have returned. What a homecoming it will be! How much closer the ties will have become for the sufferings and heart aches and sorrows of the past year. And when students and alumni gather about for this renewed opportunity of being together — all together again they will raise their eyes to their Service Flag with its 73 gold stars gleaming among the 4000 blue ones on the field of white, their smile will become a little sweeter, their hand clasp a little tighter, their hearts a little warmer and their thoughts a little more tender. The homecoming will have taken on a deeper significance. They will leave the presence of that Flag, humbled in spirit and with ambition mellowed in thoughts of a greater ser- vice, for " Greater love hath no man than this — That he lay down his life for his friends. " i Cdt5li5Skei-| c Hon —75- 3 lS 9i9jc odMotx f Coi fesiker W t Cornbusfeer panquet The flying lump of sugar, the wadded napkin, and the smack of chopped ice on cheek and forehead, bring visions of tempestuous riot and confusion to the mind of those fortunates who have at- tended the Cornhusker Banquet of ye olden times. The older Nebraskan well remembers the time when his life was far safer under the table ' s protecting roof, than above it, when the air was charged with flying missiles, and a man offered a prayer to get out alive. Such were the good old days of yore that have now passed into history; their memory still fresh with us, but their reality gone, never to return. The Cornhusker Banquet boasts an existence of some thirty years. The first meetings were held back in the days of Dr. Roscoe Pound, who is now Dean of the Harvard School of Law, and many of the incidents connected with the early banquets are linked with his name. Dr. Pound, with other citizens and alumni of the University, conceived the idea of the Cornhusker banquet, and held the first meetings, which were informal, at some down town hotel. The purpose of the Banquet then, as well as now, was to boost for the football team, and to adver- tise the successes of the team to the State and to the Middle West. In these days the business men of Lincoln took an inter- est in the successes and failures of the Cornhusker football team, and never failed to add their financial and moral aid when called upon to do so. This active interest of Lincoln business men in Ne- braska football has survived the changing —76— ■A Tg 9l9 is circumstances of the last thirty years, and even today we see them " turn out " for the Cornhusker Banquet at the close of the football season. For about fourteen years the Corn- husker Banquet drifted along without definite organization, the meetings being held regularly, but beyond the reach of student control. In 1904 the management of the Banquet was taken over by the Innocents society and by them, was made a great annual affair, with elaborate cab- aret and entertainment features. A long toast list was arranged of speakers drawn from all over the State. It was at this time, that the student body first took active interest in the annual event, and by the weig ht of student opinion, made it a breach of Cornhusker loyalty to be absent from the Banquet. The hilarities of the Cornhusker Ban- quet which had been steadily on the in- crease for ten or twelve years, reached a climax in the Banquet of 1916. In this year the number of casualties was un- usually high, and more than one enthusi- astic Cornhusker awoke the following day with a blue swelling over the eye. Some had grown welts on their heads overnight, and others were nursing sore and sprained fingers. The toast master of the evening barely escaped losing his scalp, when a coiled napkin, filled with ice, skimmed over his head. Football warriors, who were veterans of many a hard-fought battle of the gridiron, freely admitted that they would rather go through three games with Michigan or Minnesota, than risk their lives at another such Cornhusker Banquet. As has been said, this memorable battle- feast capped the climax of the traditional Banquet of high explosives and machine gun bullets. Dean Engberg issued a proclamation soon after, stating that there Comkbisker H ' iodidoti -77- sy el Tg 93L9S (sSMoh ll C6tSte(skei-| would be no more Cornhusker Banquets. A blow was thus delivered to the hearts of Nebraskans who had come to treasure the delights of the annual Banquet. True to his word, the next year (1917), Dean Engberg forbade the students to give the annual celebration, but acquiesced in so far as to allow them to hold a banquet which should be called a " Varsity Ban- quet. " This was held last year at the city Y. M. C. A. and proved to be quite a success. The usual spirit of rowdyism was dead, and with the fine talks that were given and the excellent program of stunts, everyone was agreed that the evening was as enjoyable as any that had gone before. This year the traditional Cornhusker Banquet was revived, and a great assem- blage of loyal Cornhuskers met at the Commercial Club banquet room to pay tribute, not only to the football heroes of the past season, but also to all Cornhuskers who were taking an active part in the affairs of the University. Guy E. Reed was toast- master, being supported by an exception- ally good list of speakers, among whom were Mayor J. E. Miller, Chancellor Avery, Dr. George E. Condra, Senator J. E. Wea- verling, and Prof. Cochran. These men, everyone of them imbued with a love for their Alma Mater, gave inspiring talks to the enthusiastic Cornhuskers assembled. A new spirit was injected into the tradi- tional conception of the Cornhusker Ban- quet. A spirit of dignity took the place of the ancient, and now dead, memory of rowdyism. A great future lies ahead of the tradition of the Cornhusker Banquet. A powerful influence for good, it will always take prominent rank among the majo r tradi- tions of our school. The Banquet is the fountain from which flows the true spirit of Cornhusker loyalty, and as the years go on and each succeeding generation of Cornhuskers adds its sentiment to the occasion, the influence of the Corn- husker banquet will become of paramount importance in the life of all Nebraskans. I —78— a ■ ' ' " fftY (§itl Cornljugfeer Here is one tradition whose memories are fresh. One does not have to dig down into the nineteenth century to find out what a Girls ' Cornhusker Party is. The freaks and froHcs of that first Cornhusker night in 1913 are still as yesterday to its many participants. Here is how the idea started : For a number of years the boys of the university had worked up so much enthu- siastic energy during the football season that it was a dire necessity for them to let off steam. They found that the best way to do this was by giving the team a jolly good banquet, seething with Ne- braska spirit. Then the girls became jealous. If anyone had the Nebraska spirit, they had, and they wished, in fact demanded, to share in its distribution. Naturally the boys could not resist the requests of these fair co-eds and the next banquet table in 1911 beamed on multi- tudes of rosy cheeks and charming curls mingled with the usual array of neckties and dark suits. The success of this party was so evident that it was repeated the next year and probably would have continued annually if something else had not happened. Away back in somebody ' s brain occurred the thought why should not the girls be as original as the boys and give a party of their own to show their spirit. The thought traveled like fire. A costume party! That was the thing! Before they realized it, the girls of 1913 were gathered in the Armory, 480 strong, playing and dancing in costumes ranging from Cleopatra to Jack Horner. Little I; Camkoskei- cdMon —79— boys ran around the room breaking up the tete-a-tetes of young lovers. Dean Engberg appeared in full dress suit and utterly disgraced himself by playing ball with the girls. Dignity, snobbishness, kill- joys were put out in the cold with the boys while the stunts, refreshments, and dancing added to the merriment inside. Only the striking of midnight was able to bring an end to the party. The next year a little scandal occurred which, however, was not revealed until afterward. Among the fair ladies who watched the festivities was a good-looking, flaxen-curled damsel in a regulation middy blouse and skirt. Delicate pink cheeks, blue eyes, and a lavalier completed the camouflage. Several days later, however, the beauty was unveiled and lo! it was a boy! There never were so many chatter- ing girls on the campus as on that day. The matter quickly came to a head, end- ing in the dismissal of the culprit along with several girls who had been his tools. For the next three years the party was continued with increasing popularity until it is now the most democratic, looked- forward-to party of the year. The party in December, 1918, was a roof raising celebration of the football season and the close of the war. Early in the evening they started streaming in — Hula girls, bums, harem favorites, dominoes, Japanese maidens, Indians, society belles and beaux, clowns, waiters, Columbias, coons and Robin Hoods. Jackies and Yanks were conspicuously present. An elaborate program presented some unique and fascinating personages. Achoth opened the bill with " Rainbow Division, Camouflage. " Theta Sigma Phi, in " Bel- inda ' s Beaus, " gave a satire on life in the S. A. T. C. Three boys and three girls, the " Alpha Delta Pi Babies, " sang melo- e ! Ti6 i9i9:i dies backwards. Chi Omega pictured registration day, rush week, and other red-letter days. Alpha Omicron Pi de- picted a reversed humanity in " Looking Backwards. " Pi Beta Phi burlesqued " The Girl on the Magazine Cover. " Gamma Phi Beta put on " The Peerless Sideshow, " and Kappa Kappa Gamma produced, " When Johnny Comes Marching Home. " Alpha Xi Delta gave " The International Rag " in costume and Delta Gamma, led by Captain Mclvor, portrayed the first week of school in the S. A. T. C. Alpha Phi ' s " Seemfunny Orchestra " completed the program with a number of melo- dramatic selections. Then Don Juans and chorus girls, navy lads and colonial maids, villainous clowns and Miss Muffets joined hands and jazzed away the happy hours, until refreshments were served. Realizing that this was the one party of the year when real men were absolutely prohibited, the girls made the most of their time to vent their pent-up spirits and become acquainted with each other. No laws could have held them down. No thoughts could have made them sober. And when the time for the Cornhusker Party rolls around next year it is to be hoped that no girl will miss this time of all times to get the real Nebraska spirit, with the other girls of the university. —81— i Coaifeko.-:g9g Cijartcr Bap The University of Nebraska was char- tered by act of the State Legislature in 1869, two years after Nebraska had been admitted to statehood. No sooner was the territory raised to the rank of state- hood than our forefathers took it upon themselves to assure the benefits of higher education to the generations of Cornhusk- ers that were to come. We owe a great debt to those generous pioneers who wasted no time or effort in setting in motion the giant wheels of knowledge. To them, who, a half cen tury ago, laid the corner stone of University Hall, we do honor this year. Charter Day has always been celebrated in some form or another at the University of Nebraska, with the exception of the year 1919, its semi-centennial year, when the celebration was postponed until June. For many years it was customary for all departments of the University to keep " open house " on Charter Day, to the general public. All departments gave exhibits of their work for the students and for visitors from the city. In the early days there was great interest mani- fested in these exhibits, and they were well attended by students. Faculty ex- pected to spend the day on the campus. Departments vied with each other in trying to put on the best exhibits of work. The tradition of the " exhibit " lingered longest in the gymnasium. The indoor track meet on Charter Day was a fixture until the outbreak of the War. The Quarter-Centennial, in 1894, was a time of great rejoicing. Professor George E. Howard was brought from Leland Stanford to give the Charter Day address. IS —82— A K S t otpW A special edition of The Hesperian, (The Daily Nebraskan), was issued, containing reminiscences and historical sketches. Students and faculty joined in the felici- tations on the growth of the institution in the first twenty-five years of its exis- tence. In this year the total number of students reached about 1309. On September 7, 1871, the University of Nebraska opened with an enrollment of seventy-five students. That was a promising event for a state only a little more than four years old, with a popula- tion of about 130,000 people scattered along its eastern border, with practically no schools above the primary or common grades. The ratio of students in atten- dance at the University for the first year, to population, was about one to seven- teen hundred. Today it is about one to 416, showing the great gain in popularity made by higher education in the last half century. An eminent Nebraskan speak- ing at the opening of the University said: " Here is free education. If these facts be appreciated and these precious advantages be improved, THIRTY YEARS from today the alumni of this institution will have made their impress for the good, the true, and the enobling upon every statute law in the state, upon every school district in the county; and the ripened fruits of this system of edu- cation will cluster richly in the legislative, executive, and judicial departments of the entire Commonwealth. " The custom of holding Commencement exercises on Charter Day, omitted this year, is a comparatively new one. It did not belong to the nineteenth century life of the institution but is a matter of the last ten or twelve years. February fif- teenth, nineteen hundred and nineteen was devoid of any excitement whatsoever. No comm encement exercises, no holiday, or any observance of the day was held. All ceremonies were postponed until the great Semi-Centennial program of this Spring. ' B adMofl ' —83— c- TfadMott i; Cdiafa5W|g] g Mniljersiitp J isllt Scandal Hall! Slam Quarters! Gos- sip Parlors! What could not the audi- torium be called on University Night? Then ' s when the lid is off! Then ' s when the veil is lifted! Then he who has dared give utterance to a noble thought is made full sorry for it. Then he who has reached or aspired to the realms of political office or campus ruler would give up his life to be one of the unassuming little freshmen about him. Then Ye Grand Professeur is fatally exhibited under the strong lens of the students ' microscope. For nine years the students have taken this opportunity to light the flames of their ever-burning desire to raise a laugh. This is the one time when no laws are binding. Here the darkest secrets of the campus are brought to light. Here the prominent characteristics of the faculty are played with unmercifully. Here in great crowds come the entire student body and faculty to gaze into the mirror of the unknown. They literally see them- selves as others see them and good naturedly accept their impersonations in the spirit that they are meant. The university is indebted to the Y. M. C. A. for the origination and propagation of this annual event. In 1911 the first University Night was held for the sole purpose of having a good time. As no admission was charged, great numbers were turned away for lack of seating cap- acity. Such success surely warranted a repetition, so University Night took its place in the list of Nebraska traditions. Minstrel shows, musical numbers, skits and take-offs have predominated in the evening ' s entertainment, vieing only for popularity with the little pet peeves of !l i II m m the year along with their originator. " The Evening Shun, " a super-edition of newspaper, which is distributed free to everyone in the audience, is also one of the leading features. This year the most conspicuous target was Dean Amanda Heppner ' s anti-rouge campaign. No skit could resist the temp- tation to fire a shot at it and anyone who had not previously taken notice of the campaign could not but be impressed with the notoriety that was given to it. Nearly 2000 students and faculty mem- bers filled the auditorium, full of the spirit of fun and of appreciation of the plans for their merry-making. The Engineers opened the program with a marvelously clever presentation by means of mechan- ical ingenuity and a camouflaged back- ground. People and things appeared mysteriously out of space. Human heads rose spookily off their shoulders and floated around in the air. " The Live Awgwan, " by the Art Club, presented live people in characteristic poses against a background of special Awgwan covers designed by Dwight Kirsch. The university band and orchestra pro- vided the music of the evening and were well enjoyed as a contrast to the many skits. Oz Black, the chalk-talk man, brought down the house by his pointed cartoons and equally pointed jokes. The lady journalists of the university, in other words, Theta Sigma Phi, dis- played its right of organization by the way its members got news. During the intermission which followed, " The Evening Shun, " the annual pro- duction of Sigma Delta Chi, was distrib- uted. The audience found its startling revelations and its campus illuminations so enticing that they were loath to stop reading when the lights went off for the I, Co iikSskoi ' c£Liiloh 1 -85- I co k -m ;i! ' ujj Law Skit. This skit, however, soon con- soled them by its hilarious take-offs on the students and faculty and by the superb acting of Herbert Yenne in the role of the heroine. The " Ag " Club and the Pre-Medics presented playlets in line with their departments, the latter pulling tonsils and catching new specimens of bugs with equal celerity and skill. The University Players, under the direc- tion of Miss Ethel Hartley, gave a realistic picture of well known campus figures which were readily recognized. Palladian Literary Society closed the program with a three act portrayal of the death and after death of the present cam- pus hobbies. They were assisted by their own orchestra and by original songs sung by their members. S-r ' |j Coi feaskei- II ll)t IBeta Eappa Bap ' BM tti Phi Beta Kappa Day, the one day in all the four years in college to which the conscientious student looks, and the one about which his fondest dreams of schol- astic triumph are woven, has developed into one of the settled traditions at Ne- braska. On this day the be-spectacled grind, white of cheek, and unkempt in appearance, (such is the historical and bromidic conception of the P. B. K.), comes forth from his rendezvous of dusty books and study table, to accept the honors bestowed upon him at that time. One day is given over by the University to the praise of those who have seriously battled with their lessons for four years. We envy and honor the football hero every day in the year; one day only do we set aside to honor the student. The apparent injustice is a part of the nature of things, and until human nature undergoes a fundamental change, the student cannot expect to be extolled to the same degree as the athlete. Phi Beta Kappa was founded at William and Mary College in 1776, and has for its prime object the promotion of scholar- ship among the students and graduates of American colleges. A charter for the Nebraska Alpha chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was secured, through the efforts of Chancellor James E. Canfield, in 1895. The chapter was installed on Charter Day, February 15, 1896. Since that time there has been regular annual or semi- annual elections of new members. Among those on the faculty . ' who were charter members were George E. McLean, from the Williams chapter, L. A. Sherman, from the Yale chapter, T. M. Hodgman, Rochester University, J. T. Lees, Western ' E aditioti " (j fitifcSsk ?r E Reserve, W. G. Langworthy Taylor, Har- vard, A. H. Edgren, Cornell, E. W. Davis, Johns Hopkins, and the late Charles E. Bessey, Michigan Agricultural College. It was the custom of the fraternity until 1902, to hold two elections each year. The six students having the highest aver- age by the end of their junior year, were elected to membership in December, and were initiated to membership at the annual meeting on Charter Day. In May a second election was held, and the stu- dents elected then were initiated at a meeting and banquet in June, to which it was the custom to bring some orator of national note. For the June meeting in 1897, the orator was Edward Everett Hale, who also conducted the initiation. Ex-Chancellor J. Irving Manatt gave the Phi Beta Kappa address in 1902. The first initiation ceremonies, followed by a " collation " to members, were held at the home of Chancellor G. E. McLean. Later, until numbers became too great, initiation programs and dinners were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Sawyer. Of late years these have been held at the Lincoln Hotel. Twenty years ago, the membership in Phi Beta Kappa was comparatively light as only six or eight members were taken in each year. At present the average number elected each year is about thirty or forty, making it impossible to hold initiations at a private home. At the present time elections to Phi Beta Kappa are made the week before Easter recess, and announcements are made at the last convocation before the adjourn- ment, the occasion of late years of the inter-class debate. The day is now re- ferred to as " Phi Beta Kappa Day. " The annual initiation takes place in April, sometimes early in May, at which time the fraternity alternates with Sigma Xi in bringing some speaker for a joint address. WT moM j Coi lvti kei- The Phi Beta Kappa scholar of the twentieth century has done much to dis- pel the time-worn conceptions that have forever been associated with the name of the fraternity. No longer do we associate the Key with the eternal grind and the campus-recluse. The Key has taken its place in the world of affairs. It has been said that more Phi Beta Kappa charms are found on Wall Street than in any other part of the country. Phi Beta Kappa men are men who have applied the habits acquired in college to the conditions encountered in the world beyond the university body politic. Athletes claim membership in the order, and others who have found time while in college to ex- tend their activities beyond the narrow confines of the text book. It is such things as these that add prestige and honor to the name of Phi Beta Kappa. ' frodMott —89— Wr ' im M mr mnibersitp Wttk Certain patriotic and self denying souls take the time set aside for a vacation in the spring of each year to go out over the golden rod state and inject a little of the Cornhusker fluid into the veins of com- munities that might become anemic to the Nebraska spirit because of their very isolation. No attempt is made to give the stimu- lant to them all in one dose. The treat- ment is spread out over a week. One night the community is made to swallow liquid music provided by the University band or some other aqueous stocked organization. Perhaps the next night they will have to take the powders of a University Players ' performance or a skit by the dramatic club. One night they are forced to take the pill, sometimes sugar coated sometimes bitter, of a professor ' s address. It is usually administered dry, yet on certain occasions they are permitted to wash it down with a few limpid selections from the Glee Club. The course of treatment always includes a hot debate on some gullible subject. The cure has never proved fatal since the first year of its application in 1916. The spring before, there had been a feeble attempt to make some such admin- stration to the well being of the state in general, but the plans never materialized and the concoctions were never mixed nor labeled. The operation has been performed twice. This year will see the " charm-ed " per- formance for the old axiom of the " third time " will have a chance to prove its veracity before the Cornhusker goes to bed. Seriously, University week is a sort of a Chautauqua circuit which makes a limi- ted number of towns during the seven nights of the spring vacation period. The ©, —90- m T iru9i9; I CoffiktSlc -ilSB I li bookings are made so that each commun- ity gets some sort of a performance each night. The first trip in 1916 included a band concert, conducted by D. T. Lane and R. J. Saunders; a debate Resolved, that the United States should immediately and substantially increase its armament; a glee Club concert under the manage- ment of Roy Young; the play " Believe Me Xantippe " by the University Players and a lecture by Professor Persinger. The general program has remained the same, with simply a change in the person- elle of the organizations taking part. The work has been systematized after that first attempt. A general committee formed of three members each from the Black Masques, the Innocents and the Faculty, form the executive board of the whole affair. Of course the " self-sacrificing " students who give up the vacation receive a sort of recompense for their self denial in a wonderfully good time. There are trains to run after, all types of theatrical dis- asters to live through, and a constant danger of meeting the unexpected. And the community that acts as hostler to the bunch from the capital city, runs a risk of being jarred from the placid equilibrium of its undisturbed life. Yet the experiment has proved itself to be the best means of keeping a sparking contact between the city campus and the state that supports and makes possible that life. We can scarcely call an event two years old a tradition, and yet when the war economy of last spring made the Univer- sity week an impossibility, both students and state suffered pangs of regret. The week had touched the heart of so many people in those two seasons, that the omission produced a more poignant re- gret than anyone had supposed possible. University week was revived this season, and the old state again was shown that it needs the regenerative spirit that comes from an up-to-date, wide awake university. -91— TtcBMoti I ' W mM ' S aU ' Senior ncafe Bap For one day, along the late spring of the year, the SENIOR lays away the four- cornered hat of learning, dons a rakish cap at a most rakish angle, picks up a swagger stick, and makes an attempt — successful or otherwise — to elude the underclassmen, for a day ' s unsophisti- cated sport in the open. It is his farewell tour of playville. For soon he must face the Commencement bar, and then — the burdens of the world will rest upon his black-clothed shoulders. The day is one of sunshine and showers. It is pathetic to see with what childish glee and wistful joy the SENIOR plays his last play — takes his last recess period in school. To be sure the vacation is a stolen one. Therein lies half of its joys. To be sure the games are played with more vim and less skill than displayed in under- classmen frolics. Therein lies half of the sorrow of the occasion. For it must be confessed that the years ' dignity as upper- classmen in the University has already had its effect in numbing the sportative wits, and preparing the individual for the serious business of life. Senior Sneak day has been an indul- gence since the twentieth of May in 1898. On that memorable morning, the class of ' 98 nearly broke up the institution by marching into morning chapel where Dean Davis was conducting the morning exercises. They took charge of the pro- gram without invitation, announced that the SENIORS would be excused from classes for the rest of the day and went forth on a merry-making tour. The Faculty, according to hopes and expectations, were horrified. The under- classmen, ' in accordance with desires and ffl —92— • gjl Tii l9l9 i£c I CoJ fegskei- I appraisals, were chagrined to tears. The SENIORS, according to tradition, were delighted. The Stunt, in all agreement with the laws of supply and demand, became an annual affair. The committee to whom the SENIORS since ' 98 have been indebted to for the bright idea of a farewell play feat was made up of a group of four: J. E. Pearson, chairman; Lucy Green, Edna B. Carscad- den and Charles Hendy, Jr. There is not much that can be told about SENIOR sneak day. It must be lived to be appreciated. The time and the place of the festivity is usually kept a secret until the event is past history. Then no one has much interest in the affair except those who have insertions to make in their memory books. Until the spring of 1909, the picnic was always held at Milford. Since then, senti- ment has rather vascilated between there and Horkey ' s Park at Crete. Probably the most excitement of the whole day is experienced in the " get away. " Usually some Junior gets a case of suspicions. And the fun begins. Last year wild tales of underclass co-eds lock- ing their senior sorority sisters in third story rooms floated promiscuously over the campus. There were thrilling rescues staged by gallant troubadores in cord- uroys and high calf boots. Intrigue and plots, counter plots and conspiracies, frame-ups and close-ups abound. From the time that the successful ones make the train until they return in the evening, the tradition remains a closed book to the general public. It will always be " strictly senior business. " But the celebration of the " last play together " will continue to be scribed among the Nebraska traditions. IrcSMoa rz ( —93— w Wr ' ImDK TfodMon CdSSfaiskei- Compet antr fjirt ail arabe " Compet " is the student ' s popular designation of the annual competitive drill maneuvers held in the late Spring of the school year, usually between April 15th and May 10th. The archives of Ne- braska history tell us that this tradition dates back to the year 1895, a year or so before most of us had yet seen the light of day. The Pershing Rifles claim the honor of having inst igated the custom, and through their oversight and attention, it has been fostered for the last twenty • four years. The competitive drill is the culmination of the year ' s rivalry and emulation be- tween the several companies of the cadet regiment. All the pent-up feeling that has accumulated during the year is given an opportunity for expression on this day. In the afternoon the entire cadet regiment assembles for inspection, after which each company is taken through drill man- euvers, consisting of the manual of arms, and company formations. The last thing on the program is the individual compet- itive drill, in which the banner men of all companies compete with one another for first honors. The contest is one of elimination in which the man standing longest is the winner of the cup. In the evening of " Compet, " the win- ning company parades the streets of Lincoln, forming in a long line and march- ing back and forth through the business district. It was in the late nineties that the shirt tail parade was conceived. As far as is known, the first pulling of the shirt tails started spontaneously. The story goes, that in the evening of a par- T —94— . " - II eji Tfi iQio 1 ticularly warm day, the prize winning com- pany was marching down the main thor- oughfare, dressed in the unmercifully hot khaki. They were strung out in a long line, and were bravely trying to as- sume an attitude of comfortable dignity. At last one of the perspiring and extremely discomfited soldiers reached for the man in front of him and drew from sacred hiding the tail of the fellow marcher ' s shirt. This created havoc. The chagrined one was quick to retaliate and in less time than it can be told, the entire company was engaged in mortal combat for the purpose of extricating shirt tails. The idea of the flowing shirt tails made an impression on the whole student body, and the following night all the male members of the University marched en- masse through the city, visiting all the theaters and candy shops. When Lincoln was yet a small town, the activities of the paraders reached their height. In the old days the winning company passed through all the show houses, stopping the performance, and in defiance of the managements, went capering and yelling across the stage. As a rule the audience enjoyed the spectacle immensely, so that before long, the theater managers made no objection to it, and it is now the settled custom that the merry-makers shall visit all the theaters during the evening. The confectionery stores treated the boys kindly and treated them to candy and drinks. All would have been well and good had not some of the boys carried the thing too far and stolen some of the merchants ' wares. When this practice became prevalent the store keepers of the city appealed to the University authorities asking that they put a stop to the law- lessness. The faculty, after a long investi- gation, ruled out the shirt tail parade. Two members of the University were t Ca»ifca il9 jg Tffl tioti 1 -95— mn mow I CoiSfaisfcef adiHoix expelled. The latter incident aroused a great deal of discussion, and a new in- vestigation was demanded. The investi- gators asked the merchants if they wanted the shirt tail parade, and they answered that they did. Then after the investi- gation committee talked the matter over with the boys, and they pledged them- selves to see that the old practices were not repeated, no more trouble was had. The Innocents held several heated meet- ings, discussing the expulsion of the two students, and after some time they were reinstated in the University. For a time the big bonfire was associated with the shirt tail parade, and an immense conflagration of all the inflammable mater- ial available was held on the football field. Along with this, the winning company painted upon all walks, and buildings, of the University, the symbol of their organization. This caused the faculty great concern, and after much pleading and protestations, the custom was aban- doned. The shirt tail parade has had an exciting history, at times its very existence hanging in the balance of faculty goodwill. Some things have been done by thoughtless students that were, perhaps, not strictly justifiable, and which have aroused undue sentiment against the tradition. But through all the years of its life, the shirt tail parade has been nothing more than the exuberant expression of youthful enthusiasm. Chocolate creams have been purloined maybe, and trollies have been pulled, but nothing worse than this can be brought against the fair, white escutcheon of the shirt tail parade. ' : I! —96— G) ' e l Tg-i9ig .g I, CottSko tei- Hill -mil Bap High School Fete Day is the day set aside in the late spring when the high school students from all over the state, assembling at Lincoln for their annual track meet and final debates, receive their first welcome to the institution that will soon become their home. It is then that they first catch a glimpse of the campus, the spirit and the associations which will soon become endeared to them. It is then that the university gets its first peep at those who are soon to carry out its ideals and uphold its honors. These young athletes and ambitious debaters, representative of the most promising material that Nebraska university will have, are on this day tendered a royal reception by the supporters of the scarlet and the cream. How long this custom has be en in exis- tence remains a mystery. The track meet and entertainment were a thoro- oughly established event more than fif- teen years ago. In 1907 the final state debates were added to Fete Day. By May, 1909, the affair had become so im- portant that two days were devoted to it. On the first day the visitors were con- ducted through the campus. They were even allowed to visit some of the classes. At eleven o ' clock there was a program in Memorial hall consisting of a musical number by a quartet and addresses of welcome by Chancellor Avery, Governor Shallenberger, State Superintendent Bish- op, J. L. McBrien, director of the univer- sity extension bureau, and Professor G. E. Condra. This was followed by a luncheon at which more than 250 guests were pres- ent. Then came the track meet. At that time the track meet was held at the fair grounds. Each school could enter ten men but no more than two men in each event. Silver and bronze medals (3. ' B adMcMi —97— :» - - " ' I, CotSfeaSfcei- 1t aditi(Mi !l m I! were given to the first and second place winners of each event. A silk badge was given for the third place. A gold medal was presented to the winner of the greatest number of points. Besides these honors, banners were awarded to the winning relay team and the champion team. The banner of the champion team became the property of the school winning it three times in succession. When the meet was over the visitors were highly entertained at a banquet under the auspices of the Innocents and the " N " Men ' s association. In the even- ing the final high school debates took place. There were representatives from each of the eleven districts of Nebraska. Even all this excitement was not too much for the youthful spirits. Many a pillow came to its doom in the pillow- fights which took place that night and many a tuft of hair was floated out on the breeze before sleep held its sway. Of such endurance, indeed, was the future energy of the university. The second day of festivities opened at half past eight with an inspection of the cadet battalion by Captain Lockridge of the general staff of the United States army. The cadets were inspected indiv- idually as to equipment, posture, and knowledge of things military and the battalion was put through marching movements and manual of arms. At nine o ' clock there was an assembly in Memorial hall to present the medals to the winners of the meet. This was fol- lowed by an exhibition of the gymnastic team in the armory. At half past ten the Drake-Nebraska base ball game at Antelope park furnished an hour ' s amuse- ment. When the visitors returned home after such an enjoyably busy two days they could not have been without some idea of the true meaning of Nebraska Univer- sity, of its spirit and its traditions. Since that time Fete Day has become a bigger event each year. Each year it has meant more to this institution and it is to be hoped that Fete Day, 1919, will not leave a stone unturned to make Nebraska university seem inviting to the hundreds of students who will be its guests. —98— I ■q tB Qi IP 3tip Bap Ivy Day — its pristine origin marked on the yellowed leaves of the 1898 calendar — has become one of the most endeared of the Nebraska traditions to the hearts of her students. For twenty-one years, time has mellowed and ripened the sentiment that clings to the day ' s observance. For twenty-one years, the poetic spirit on the campus has unfolded its treasures under the warmth and influence of the day ' s conception. And when the muggy earth is opened to receive this season ' s contribution of the smooth, shiny, green-leaved slip of ivy, the day will take upon itself another degree of reverence. The records of that first Ivy day have almost become obliterated by time. The distinctive features of the day have become melted together, and the whole occasion glows through the vista of years like a far off field of Nebraska ' s goldenrod — the individual blooms being lost in the delight of the vibrant color of the whole. We do know that the occasion was strictly a black-gowned senior affair. Underclassmen were not permitted to witness that first Ivy Day innovation. Even the resting place of the first ivy that was planted to dedicate the growing hopes of a class spirit has been lost in the annals that chronicle the events of that year. But the great boulder that rests on the heart of the campus has withstood the rigors of the years that have passed since that day. It still stands — a mute testi- mony to the presence of the early class who gave us the first Ivy day. It was their memorial gift to their Alma Mater. The first known location of the ivy planted by members of the senior class, is that on the south side of old U Hall, ' B ' adMoft —99— TrcdMoh I CdttSfeSskei- ;l ? planted by the Senior class of ' 01. Until that year, the planting of the ivy had been a ceremony unto itself. The day became " Senior Day. " The simple ceremony of planting the ivy was elaborated to include an Ivy day oration, the reading of the class poem and the announcement of the class gift. After the " planting, " the senior class presi- dent, R. W. Harbor, handed down the trowel to Sherman E. Black, junior class president. The tradition took upon itself a more social aspect. In 1903, the first May Pole dance was given. In the introduction of this spring- time element, there came a regeneration in the poetic expression of campus ideals. More students became inflamed with a desire to add something to the custom and to have a part in its fitting celebration. It was during this year ' s ritual that the Innocents first tapped those who were to take up their obligations as upper- class leaders in school activities. The first " rush for colors " was held on the 1903 Ivy day. Two years later the Black Masques made their first " tap " on Ivy day. It was not until the spring of 1908, that Ivy day became more than a strictly senior affair. The Innocents made it possible for all classes to be excused and the day became an all-university holiday. The events were increased to include a " daisy chain drill " and the crowning of a Queen of the May. A track meet was scheduled for the afternoon. And so it continued. Each year left its influence upon the day. Each celebration increased the mossed surface of a tradi- tion that has become hoary with mem- ories. By 1916, the day had accumulated " twenty hours of stunts. " The usual exercises were held the morning of May a i V ' ,. ' -100— m T«ri919 ;Kc ■ils ' ' flS tenth on the campus. Guy Chambers, the orator for the day spoke of " Democ- racy Our Heritage. " It is unfortunate that a list of the young orators who have voiced the school senti- ments on that day of days has not been kept. Our searches Hfted the curtain only as far back as 1910.

In the afternoon the whole University adjourned to Electric park. There " the candy, the canine;, the kiddies, the cops and the cotillion crushed cruel cares. " There were games and athletic contests. All concessions were wide open. There was dancing both afternoon and evening. At three thirty, the Innocents tapped their men. The tapping cf the Black Masques followed. Everyone stayed for the big picnic supper. In the evening the dra natic club pre- sented a number of sketches for the delight of their fellow students. A carnival spir- it pervaded the crowd. Fifty women chosen from the upper classes served as police women. Dr. George Shidier, an eminent orator from York, gave an ad- dress. An " wuxtra " edition of the Daily Nebraskan was distributed after the " tap- ping " affair. The rest of the time, and the in-between time, and most all of the time, was given over to the Terpsi- chorean art. . i —101- •W " CaRnkuskei- cdiikm II i! ill m War brings about many changes —even in traditions. When the sprig of Ivy that was to commemorate the 1918 class had traveled all of the way from bleeding France to Nebraska ' s campus, it brought with it ' an_ insiduous minor chord which sounded repeatedly throughout the lighter fantastic strains of the " war year ' s " celebration of Ivy Day. Herbert Reese and Marcus Poteet sent the memorial from Nebraska ' s boys who were bending their backs under the great war machine in its effort to rid the Land of the Lily from the Hun. Under the directorship of Dr. H. B. Alexander, the many observances that have come to be a part of the Ivy day program were united into a coherent whole and given as a pageant. A chorus of junior, sophomore and freshman girls heralded the opening of the day. Two bugles announced the entrance of the queen — whose identity by the way must always be kept a secret until she makes her way to the dais to be crowned. The queen, Miss Edith Young- blut this year, was preceded by members who were to take part in the daisy chain drill. Following the reading of the Senior poem, the Ivy was brought to the queen, who in turn presented it to the Junior class president for planting. Many eyes were dimmed as the tribute from France was planted beside former memorials on the northern wall of the Administration hall. Many thoughts sped across the intervening land and waters where, at that moment, Nebraska sons were fight- ing for the traditions of the civilized world. Six cadets marched in with the Allied flags followed by six nurses bearing Ne- braska ' s service flag that then held 1,400 stars. Some of them had already turned to gold. -102- NV « 9i As the nurses knelt before the queen with their symbol of Nebraska ' s " perfect trib- ute, " Everett Randall took his place upon the throne and delivered the Ivy day oration to the flag before him. A strictly girls ' track meet was intro- duced upon the city Athletic field the fore part of the afternoon. At 3:30 the Uni- versity body adjourned to Capital Beach. A band concert and a number of Dram- atic club skits filled in the time until the tapping of the Innocents and Black Masques. Supper and an evening dance concluded the program. Ivy Day this year will undoubtedly be colored with the rejoicing hues of a victorious peace. The cloud has been lifted and many of the boys who have traversed the tortuous ways of war fields will be here to help plant the twig that stands for the reverence, the holiness, the blessedness of associations and memories and traditions.

WOLFE —106— K Si l wG) w f I •4 !: ?I " " " b l9 HARRY KIRK WOLFE The life and character of a university is, in the long run, made up of the lives and characters of the men and women who are identified with it as students, as alumni, as teachers. Every institution sooner or later acquires a tone which it transmits from generation to gener- ation, and which it imparts to those who have come within its in- fluence, so that in speaking of an Oxford man, or a Princeton man, or a Yale man, or a Harvard man, we have before us the image of a type of character which reflects that of the institution, while this, in its turn, is but the composite of the ideals of those who have passed through its gates. Such a type character is easy to detect in the case of old and long-seated universities; it is not so easy to perceive at once where the institution is comparatively young, as Nebraska is, and the type is still in formation. Nevertheless, observant thought will see in Nebraska, too, the character that is being shaped by its students and teachers and is coming to realization in Nebraska ' s own type of col- lege man. What that type is at its noblest was shown in the rich and dear personality of Harry Kirke Wolfe, student, alumnus, and for many years, teacher, who was taken from the University of Nebraska in the quiet of death on July 30, 1918. He was born in Illinois, in 1858, but most of his life was spent in Nebraska, where he was reared and (save for his doctorate work in Germany) educated, and to which he eave in service the fruits of his rearing and education. His years in the University, wholly unselfish, wholly devoted, brought many and many student-folk under his influence, there to receive the impression which they were to carry away and in some fashion blend into their own lives —so that It were idle now to attempt to say how far and wide his ima«re has been borne by the men and women who learned to love him But M K " ° va « nor ' die to recall again, for all who knew him and for all Nebraskans, the fine upstanding figure of the man, his clear, kindly eye, the ready smile, the quizzical, fun-loving word; nor yet those deeper traits which acquaintance made so evident, his cheerful cour- age, his love of truth, his faithfulness to all things righteous, and his ever great and generous humanity. No one could pass from his class! room without a deepened confidence in the better side of human nature, nor from his instruction without a strengthened understand- mg of all that is fine and fair. Dr. Wolfe was wholly simple in hTsmanI bu ' t ' tbrh " °f " unaffected and knew nothing f consc us sTyle; i uu pntfrom h,m all the clear true blue of the June heavens and he had in him all the rich and abundant life of the June fields ' r„ N. i° " i to out-of-doors; he belonged to the prairies; he belonged lersonln " . i Tu " l " belongs to them; for his is a life and hfs a personality which has already made its impress upon the character of his Alma Mater, and which will be carried on and preservedTn the highest type of the Nebraska university man. P vea in tne H. B. Alexander -107— m 9 9 i i Cijancellor Samuel berp -108— m wl Coi ifcaslcei- Jforetoorir Two years ago 1 wrote in part as follows: " This year at Charter Day we seem to be standing with the black clouds of war approaching us. We still hope that like some of our Nebraska thunder storms they may pass us by and we may be spared participation in the world ' s struggle; but it quickens the blood and gladdens the heart to know that our students are just as brave, just as patriotic and far better trained than were the American youth who responded to the call of Washington or of Lincoln. " The w ar came and the students responded to the call of the country far beyond the fondest ex- pectations of those w ho love the University most. The sacrifices at home, and especially the supreme sacrifices in France, have w on for the Cornhuskers imperishable glory. It is the special purpose of the 1919 Corn- husker to honor the University soldier. United w ith this should be an unfaltering purpose to make the University in all respects w orthy of those who have borne so honorable, and in many cases so glorious, a part in the greatest struggle of the w orld ' s history.

There was needed first, by students holding diplomas from our under- graduate colleges, a convenient and uncostly means of securing the master ' s or the doctor ' s degree without the loss incident upon a change of laboratories or instructors. There was also the need of enabling college graduates in Nebraska either to extend their specialization or to enlarge the breadth of their aca- demic training. The growing disposition to supplement the traditional four years of college study with ad- vanced or allied courses is bringing a constantly in- creasing number of applicants each year to the grad- uate schools and colleges of the country. Along with the tendency to shorten preparation for law and medicine, by counting the last two college years as both academic and professional, there is a counter tendency to prolong the usual term of resi- dence at a university to five or even six years. At the close of the Spanish- American war there was an extraordinary boom not only in production and trade but in general enterprise. The intellectual life of the country underwent a marvelous intensification. The close of the present vastly greater war will occasion a similar transfer of aroused national energy to civic and social forms. The throngs hitherto seeking admission to colleges everywhere will be doubled and perhaps quadrupled. The studies sought will not all be technically vocational. The Graduate College of our University expects to serve the State, under the new conditions, more fruitfully and inspiringly. L. A. Sherman.

The demand for early specialization and the consequent birth of new technical colleges seemed to many educators to spell the death of the Arts college. Recently, however, there has developed a decided trend in the other direction. Colleges of Law, Medicine, Dentistry, etc., are requiring more and more of a cultural education as preliminary to entrance. Colleges of Agriculture, Commerce, Fine Arts and others, are building more and more on a foundation of cultural subjects. In the motives back of this change are to be found the aim and function of the Arts college of the future. Lead- ers in the various professions, as well as heads of the col- leges where the training for these professions is given, have come to fee! an increasing need for the foundation of a cultural education. As the basis of efficiency both in se- curing the technical training and in its application in the practice of the profession. Besides tlieir cultural value, the courses offered in the various departments of the Arts col- lege provide the proper mental equipment and the best possible basis for specialization in technical studies. The courses of this college are of prime importance to the student who has not yet decided on his special line of life work, giving to him an opportunity to test his tastes and his capabilities as an aid in reaching the correct decision ; they are of equal importance to the student who, sure of his ultimate goal, whether professional, industrial, or scientific, wishes to lay a sure and broad foundation for it. The Arts college thus becomes the school where the student learns habits of perseverance and industry, where his intelli- gence and honesty are developed, where his natural aptitudes are discovered, and where he is trained to enter upon his vocational course with his faculties trained to accom- plish maximum results. In short, the Arts college provides the courses fundamentally necessary for successful prosecution of the technical work of the other colleges. To some this has seemed a lowering of the Arts college to the position of nurse for the vocational colleges. To me it is rather endowing the Arts college with that most sacred of functions, the care of the wise and loving mother who, after proper training, sends her children forth to make the world better and nobler. This function of the Arts college, to lay the foundation for the training of the pro- fessional man and woman, merges into its larger function, that of training its students in the ideals of efficient citizenship. The world conflict through which we have just passed, while it has accentuated the demand for technical education, has also been a most power- ful factor in awakening mankind to a greater realization of the value of high ideals given ' by a study of the humanities. For instance, the demand which was so insistent before the war for a technical training " uncontaminated " by any contact with the purely educational courses of the Arts college, has, since the war, been replaced by the earnest advice that the curriculum be made to include as much as possible of history, mathe- matics, philosophy and literature. People are coming to a clearer perception of the mean- ing of Solomon when he said, " Get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding. " The problems of the new democracy and the vast labors of the reorganization and recon- struction of society, commerce, and industry .require, not merely technical skill and knowledge, but also a profound understanding of the human heart and mind, coupled with an idealism that will strive to replace the selfishness of the past with a practical altruism in the future. The Arts college thus will continue to be the guardian of the University ' s tradition the inspirer of a love of knowledge for truth ' s sake, the exponent of high scholarship and high ideals. Here our young men and women arrive at an understanding of human na- ture and of the problems of life that will enable them to play their part in the world with understanding, faith and courage. The Arts college then is to be the training school for officers in the army of hurnanity, the school which is to teach the students not only to be better farmers, lawyers, or merchants, but to be leaders in the fight for better and nobler living in the era upon which we are entering.

Its chief purpose has been to make it possible for college stu- dents to pursue the fine arts adequately as part of a liberal education. It has, there- fore, developed the opportunity to study drawing and painting, dramatics and music as major studies in courses for the A. B. degree. In addition to this aim, the school pro- vides an opportunity for students to pre- ]3are more intensively for careers in the fine arts- With this in view, it has de- vised special courses leading to the Bache- lor of Fine Arts degree. On the assumption that students will become better artists and better men and women if they acquire a broad culture, these courses are not ex- clusively technical, but include a liberal amount of traditional academic work. The aim of the School is not to confine its influence to its special students, but to serve the entire University within its field. It, therefore, provides exhi- bitions of art free to all students. It produces plays of approved merit at a nominal cost. It maintains a University Chorus and a University Orchestra, which provide training and entertainment for the student body. Under the able management of Mrs. Raymond, it provides a series of weekly musical convoca- tions and supplies the musical features to University functions. Paul H. Grumann.

One of these is that agricultural education is the herald of opportunity — that science yoked with labor will multiply the fruits of toil. The graduates from this college have gone out with a good degree of technical education and with a feeling of obligation to the state which made their education possible. They have felt the responsibility resting upon them to repay the cost of such education and have made good. As an evidence of the growth of the college, it may be pointed out that all of the important buildings of the present Farm campus are the growth of twenty-two years, by far the largest part being the growth of the past six years. Permanent and modern buildings have been erected, until now excellent facilities are available to the students pursuing special lines of education. Administration, Agronomy, Horticulture, Animal Hus- bandry, Dairy Husbandry, Agricultural Engineering, Rural Economics, and Home Economics all have been housed in substantial quarters. Laboratories have been built and equipped, land has been added to the college farm, experimental farms have been organized to adapt the work of the central station to local conditions. The Agricultural Extension Service which touches the farmers in every locality has been established. Where once six college professors gave all the necessary instruction, sixty are now required. Where once instruction was mainly to short course students in secondary work, the work of college instruction is now the largest and most important activity. Where once the college professors did the farmers ' institute work, which carried the college to the farmer, a large corps of trained specialists is now employed ia: this purpose. Instruction has been greatly specialized to meet the requirement of technical lines of industry. Field and forest, orchard and garden, feed lot and stable furnish the laboratories in which science is applied to production. Agricultural Engineering has been developed to include instruction in the care and operation of farm machinery, gas engines, automobiles, power farming, carpenter and forge work, farm drainage, rural architecture, and road construction. Animal industry has been organized to include a study of practical live stock manage- ment, the feeding, breeding, and development of animals, of milk production, butter and cheese making, ice cream and dairy manufacture, and the control of animal disease for the promotion of the farming industry. Technical studies in soil fertility, crop rotation, varieties, crop management, and orchard and garden specialties are constantly being made which enrich and give practical direction to farm practice. Students who register in Agriculture have a rich and most interesting course of study in which applied science and agricultural practice give technical efficiency while general studies are required to prevent too narrow specialization. The demand for men and women who are qualified along technical lines has been so great that new opportunities open to the student even before he is qualified to accept such responsibility. They are so varied as to fit different types of men. The Government service calls for agricultural men well trained in science. Station and college workers are needed. County agents and extension specialists are in demand. Vocational schools call for teachers. Practical farmers and farm managers are wanted in unlimited numbers. It is impossible for any student to become a specialist along all agricultural lines within the four years allotted to a college course, but by following the plan laid down he may secure a good general education with a more thorough study of one or two special branches. He may also lay the foundation in his undergraduate work for further specializa- tion. The immediate call seems imperative to the recent graduate but the door of oppor- tunity stands ajar and the student is free to follow the line of his greatest interest. You are invited to become partners with us in this new and inspiring field of education. E. A. Burnett.

At the National Western Stock Show at Denver, in January, Nebraska ' s team won first place. As this was the third consecutive year that Ne- braska has won the Denver contest, the big silver trophy came back to Lin- coln to stay. J. A. Shepherd, not shown in the picture above, was on the Denver team, D. V. Stephens and O. H. Jensen not participating. —142- el 115 919 1 jj Coi SfaSskei- n Bairp Jubging QCeam Prof. Frandsen (Coach) Spencer Lawritson Duncombe Powell The Dairy Judging Team of the University of Nebraska attended the National Dairy Show for 1918, held at Columbus, Ohio.

The first Fanners Fair at Nebraska was held in the spring of 1916 and was pronounced a success in every way. One of the big features of the Farmers Fair was the big parade, which created a great interest through its course from the Farm campus to O street and up around the city campus. In this parade, the different departments of the College of Agriculture were repre- sented in a characteristic manner. During the afternoon and evening, the Farm campus was the scene of interesting attractions and in general an " open house " for university people and the public. The University and Farmers Fair boards did not find it best to hold these fairs during the last three school years, because of the World War. Yet, agricultural students have kept the Farmers Fair movement in their minds and have appointed a Farmers Fair board, which is already making plans for a booming Farmers Fair next year. The main purpose of this Farmers Fair movement is education. It is hoped that through this medium the people of the state and also other colleges may become acquainted with the Agricultural College at Nebraska University. We hope that some day the Farmers Fair will be one of the most helpful and pleasant traditions at Nebraska. —144— rig 9i9ig Jfarmcrs Jfair Poarb Christensen Borcherding Hearn Thomson Lowritson lilil J -145— Tiieal919 Cdi? tdiaskei ' fe DKAX DAVIS Dean of the College of Dentistry College of Bentigtrp The Board of Regents, on September 23, 1918, established a dental department under the title of " The University of Nebraska, School of Dentistry. " At the same meeting, the Board accepted the Lincoln Dental College as a gift from its owner and founder, Dr. W. Clyde Davis. By the act of the legislature in March, 1919, the title was changed to " The University of Nebraska, College of Dentistry. " The Dental College was organized in 1899 as an affiliated school with Cotner University, un- der the name of Lincoln Dental College of Cotner University. In 1904, it was reorganized as the Lincoln Dental College, and in April of that year became associated with the Univer- sity of Nebraska in an educational way. which association was maintained till 1915, when the students of the first two years of the dental course became University students, the senior students having no University connection. This condition obtained at the time of complete ab,sorption, when the equip- ment was taken over and the present quarters rented for an infirmary. During all these years, the school has maintained the highest standards and at the present time has the highest possible rating by the National Associa- tion of Dental Examiners. It is a member of the National Association of Dental Faculties and the diplomas of the school have been given full recogni- tion wherever an American diploma is received. The students will continue to attend the same departments in the University which they have attended in . the ])ast, with the added advantage of having the classes in these departments adapted more specially to their needs as prospective dentists. There is offered a four-year dental course looking to the degree of D. D. S., also a six-year course looking to the degrees of B. Sc. and D. D. S. The first two years of the six-year dental course is identical with that of the first two years of the six-year medical course- By this arrangement, students starting out on the six-year schedule may, at the end of the first two years, choose either the medical or dental course at their option, or may even abandon the profes- sional courses altogether and by two more years of attendance receive the B. Sc. only. This is of great advantage to those young men who desire ad- vanced education as preparation for a professional life, as well as to those who desire to take university work and have not fully decided as to the profession they wish to follow, for after two years of university work, they are then able to choose or change their mind as to medicine or dentistry or abandon both and complete the B. Sc. course without a single hour of lost work. It is planned, at no distant date, to prepare or build quarters for the in- firmary on the University campus. There are forty-three candidates for the degree of D. D. S- in the 1919 class. There will be a marked increase in the number of freshmen at the beginning of the next session. -r ., Clyde P.

For n:any years the older graduates have occupied re- sponsible positions in the engineering world. During the recent great emergency they have stood with the best from larger institutions of the country. The war activities of the University have tended toward a disorganization of its normal activities. In the College of Engineering this is looked upon as not wholly a disadvantage, inasmuch as it affords excep- tional opportunity for some reorganization. For a number of years engineering educators and practi- tioners and employers of engineers have been dis- cussing the merits of certain proposed modifications in the scheme of engineering education. It is apparently fairly well established that at least some of these have merit. Such modifications can best be intro- duced at a time like the present, when it will additionally derange the schedules of the least number of individuals. It seems ix)ssible to effect changes which will increase the popularity of the engineering courses, will adapt them to those who have natural aptitude in the lines of construction and production but lack the ability to make satisfactory grades in the present courses, and at the same time will make possible the more complete and effective training of the high grade professional engineer. Progress in the direction noted will, however, be attended with caution and care will be taken to avoid a situation equivalent to having the work of the College as a whole on an experimental basis. The College of Engineering expects to be identified closely with the de- velopment of the state, not only by training men to direct this developmient as employees and as independent operators, but also by assuming tasks of investi- gation and record regarding resources that can be developed. Finally, and by no means least important, it proposes to discharge com- pletely and in most cordial spirit its obligations of sympathy and cooperation with other parts of the University. O. V. P.

" It is a federation of the various departmental societies of the college in the University of Nebraska Society of Engineers. The American So- ciety of Mechanical Engineers, the American Institute of Electrical Engi- neers, and the American Society of Agricultural Engineers. The last three named are the student branches of the national organizations of the same name. The society is governed by the Board of Control, which is composed of the president of the Engineering society and the president of the various departmental societies. This board appoints all committees and elects the officers. This year a new scheme is being tried out, the idea being to increase the attendance of the meetings. The meetings of the Engineering Society are held on the third Thursday afternoon of each month, and the depart- mental societies hold their meetings on the first Thursday of each month. The first meeting of the year is devoted to a general business meeting, and the following ones are in charge of the departmental societies in turn. In addition to the meetings, other activities and fun fests are held, such as the Engineers ' Hop, smokers, theatre parties. Engineers ' Night, at which time all of the laboratories are in operation and thrown open to the public.

It is a pertinent request. The College of Law in requir- ing, as it formerly did, the same degree of school preparation as do other colleges of the University, was already a year in advance of the requirement in our statute book which must be accepted as the one made by the profession. The law relating to admission to the bar only requires that the applicant shall have had three years of high school or its equivalent. The University, of course, in all its colleges, requires four. It was found, however, that this was not enough. Our experience shows that under this requirement, lads were coming up from the high schools and taking the somewhat strenuous and discouraging work of the Law Col- lege ' s first year, which seeks to lay a basis for the entire legal course, without having any definite vocation towards the pro- fession, or ambition for proficiency in it. It became clear that at least a year of college work was necessary for the high school graduate to find himself and settle upon a farther course, and more than that year is ordinarily needed to give a command of at least the English language, and of history, out of which our legal system has grown. The iresult is that the College of Law is requiring two years more of time for entrance upon its course than does the standard fixed by law in this state. Under these conditions, it is not surprising that a somewhat increasing proportion of admissions to the bar are through the examinations prescribed by the supreme court based upon office study, or upon study in the schools, for a much shorter time than is necessary for the obtaining of a degree. But this state of affairs is not new. From the beginning, the school has required at least four years of preparatory study. Since 1911, it has required the additional year of col- lege work. Under this requirement, the attendance had but slightly diminished and there seemed every prospect that it would even be augmented in the course of a few years, when in the spring of 1017 our country engaged in the war. The immediate result of the announce- ment of the training camps, and the taking of enlistments for both naval and military work in them , was the emptying of all college classes to a great degree, and of the law classes almost in toto. As far as can be learned, the desire to finish on the part of those who have an incom- pleted course in law is universal. Of course, more or less of such students will acquire inter- ests in other parts of the country where they have been stationed and will finish their courses there. But it is clear that the great majority of them will return, and with only an increased ambition to fill out creditably the career of their choice. The fact that we require one year of college work and somewhat urgently advise the taking of much more than that on the part of all who can possibly afford the time and ex- pense of doing so, may operate in some degree to reduce the numbers in our classes ; but the University authorities, as well as the faculty of the Law College, confidently expect that the policy will be as steadily supported under post war conditions, as it was previously. They venture to think that that policy is going to prevail although some of the figures of attendance in other states show a much stronger tendency to leave out the preliminary train- ing, than they do with us. Meanwhile, the American Bar Association, the State Bar Associations, and the higher type of lawyers everywhere, are recognizing fully, not merely the .reasonableness, but the indispensibleness of maintaining the requirements for preliminary education and even of advancing them. The future of the law college, as of every other branch of this institution, depends upon the general recognition of the indispensible importance of a high standard of general education. It would seem out of the question for any man of common sense, who has lived through the events of the last few years and has seen what a factor in those events the current opinions of the masses of our people have been, should underrate the vital importance of general education for citizenship at large, and most certainly for mem- bers of the legal profession. If Burke was right in saying that the study of the law furnishes the best system of secular education, the future of the colleges of law ought to be bright, indeed. W. G.

The organization of the School of Pharmacy was au- thorized by the Board of Regents in 1908, and was at that time made a part of the College of Medicine. In 1915, the School of Pharmacy was erected into a col- lege by legislative action- The growth of the institution has been very rapid. This has been made possible be- cause of the high standing of the University of Ne- braska among teaching institutions. The College of Pharmacy was a pioneer among the institutions teach- ing pharmacy in demanding the same requirements for entrance as are required by all other colleges of the University. This placed Nebraska in a unique posi- tion, and her leadership has been followed by prac- tically all state universities west of the Appalachian Mountains. All institutions outside of state univer-; sities require but two years high school work for entrance. Because of this the majority of students who enter pharmacy get their training in privately owned schools. At the same time this condition brings the better class of students to the State Universities. It is not the ideal of the administrative officers of the College of Pharmacy to bring to the University a great body of students and turn out on the public a great number of poorly trained, so-called professional men. The ideal is to prepare a smaller group of men more thoroughly, so they will be able to undertake the problems of scientific and professional pharmacy. The work of the pharmacist requires an exactness which is demanded of few other professional men. And the chief problem which has confronted the University was to obtain in the College of Pharmacy students with ability equal to that of students enter- ing other professional lines. This end has been attained. When the School of Pharmacy was organized the buildings on the campus were so crowded that suitable quarters could not be obtained for the new department of pharmacy, and it was necessary to house it, as well as the executive offices, in the basement of old Nebraska Hall. Here the work was carried on under extremely adverse conditions. During this time, however, there was developed the Drug Plant Garden, which has attracted the most favorable comment throughout the country and has done much toward placitig this institution in its present class. With the completion of the new Chemistry building, the old Chemistry laboratory was turned over to be used exclusively by the departments of Pharmacy, Pharmacology, and Physiology, and to house the executive offices of the College of Pharmacy. The building has been re- modeled at considerable expense, and the laboratories are admirably adapted to the needs of the various departments. The war has called the attention of the world to the importance of the pharmacist in civil and public life. It has shown us what may happen to a nation that is unprepared to supply its own medicinal products, whether they be derived from plants or by synthetic processes. It has shown that a country may be flooded by great quantities of adulterated medicinal products with few men adequately trained to protect the public against such adulteration. The scientific breeding and production of drug plants is in its infancy. The pro- — ice— 1 919 ( CoiStfeaSierl duction of synthetic drugs for both medicinal and industrial purposes offers a field of unlimited possibilities. Today immense salaries are being offered men who are trained in a knowledge of the drug markets and drug geography of the world. The pharmaceutical manufacturing interests are now seeking scientific men who have been adequately trained to solve the problems of those interests. These are the problems that the College of Pharmacy will attempt to solve. It is hoped in the near future a number of scientific men of national reputa- tion may be added to the staff. The basement of the new building will be occupied by a fully equipped pharmaceutical manufacturing plant and a laboratory to be used for physiolog- ical standardization of drugs. The first floor will be devoted exclusively to pharmacy, and the top floor to pharmacognosy, pharmacology, physiology, and the executive offices. In the roomy attic of the building there will be built a plant for the curing and preserving of crude drug plants. This location is ideal because of the lack of moisture. With the clearing of the campus, the pharmaceutical garden will be in- creased in size, and plans are being laid to develop it in such a way so that plants may be grown under any and all conditions, thus making it a great living drug plant laboratory. In doing this work, the University will not for- get what it owes to retail pharmacy in the state and will constantly seek to prepare young men and women in the best ix)ssible way for the professional work in the retail store. The College of Pharmacy must broaden its field of action and concern itself with all phases of pharmaceutical endeavor, whether scientific, professional or commercial. RuFUS A.

All pharmacy students are members of this society. A banquet usually given in the beginning of the school year serves as an initiation for freshmen. At the regular meeting papers and talks are given on topics and events of pharmaceutical interest. All the activities of the college are carried on through this society. Chief among these activities are the University Nite program, Pharmacy Annual and Pharmacy Week. We are the only college editing a representative Year Book. Pharmacy Week is held at state board examination time, the second week in May, at which time the Pharmacy flag flies above " U " Hall.

This change will be of advantage to higher business training in many ways, and it is safe to prophesy that the new college will always be closely associated with the Arts College because of the fact that the business world needs men of liberal education as well as technical training. As heretofore the work in general eco- nomics will be the backbone of the course in business administration. While not less theo- retical than formerly, it will become more practical, and the inseparable connection which should subsist between theory and practice will be more closely perceived. Accountancy, of course, will retain its primacy among the more strictly professional courses, not only because it gives the student an insight into the inner workings of the business machine, but because it leads directly to the profession of public accountancy. Of almost equal value are the courses in business organization and management, mar- keting, salesmanship and advertising. It used to be thought that these subjects could be learned only in the factory, the shop, or the office; but now it is well established that they may be taught in schools, if only the right sort of teachers can be found. This problem has been solved by schools of law, medicine and engineering, and the higher schools of busi- ness are working out their own solution in a very satisfactory way. The work in insurance is to be improved by the addition of courses in actuarial mathe- matics. In the new building there will be a statistical laboratory, equipped with calculating machines, which will make it possible to do very satisfactory work in the mathematics of insurance, as well as in the courses of statistics. The tine service which the College of Agriculture has rendered to the farmers of Nebraska suggests by analogy that the College of Business Administration might stand in a similar relation to the business men of the state by investigating the many problems that con- front them, and by extension work of various kinds. Both faculty and students might en- gage in work of research, which, like the study of plant and animal pathology carried on by the College of Agriculture, might easily return to the people of the state many times the cost. Before the beginning of the coming ac ademic year the School of Commerce will be established in its new quarters on the third floor of the Hall of Social Sciences. There will be offices for all the members of the faculty, splendid class rooms, a seminar room for advanced students, a commerce museum, a statistical laboratory, and the finest accountancy laboratory that has ever been seen. There will be plenty of room for all the students who may come, and both students and faculty will work together to make their ideals and standards worthy of the new building and of the state. If this is done, the University of Nebraska will have one of the best colleges of Business in the country.

It was organized under the direc- tion of Doctor Stewart, Director of Athletics, for the purpose of assisting in improving athletic conditions at Nebraska. Due to war conditions, many of the " N " Club members left school, and the Club was not at its best. However, it was reorganized at the beginning of this year, and at the present time every letter man in school is a member. Its value was shown during the state high school basketball tour- nament, when " N " Club members managed it entirely. President Paul Dobson acted as superintendent, and under his direction, the entire tournament was officered by " N " Club members. Those interested in the 1919 tournament pronounced it the most successful in the entire tournament history. The pin worn by " N " Club members is a small gold and enamel " N, " with the word " Varsity " engraved upon it. -240- m ■qM Tlg-1919 ;£c |j CafiHifasilcei ' -E ®nibersitp " iS " Cluti Bryans Fuchs Mackey Young Lanphere Stephens Pickett Troendley Graf Gerhart Neuman Jackson Hubka Spear Yort McMahon Flood Reynolds Hoyt Swanson Shellenberg Dobson Shaw Munn Ross Lyman —241— 18 919 g c S CoRSteiskei- Dr. E. J. Stewart this season completes his third year as Nebraska head coach. Coming to Nebraska from the Oregon Agricultural College, where he was successful in turning out teams of championship calibre, he has continued his work here, placing Nebraska on a footing unequalled from an athletic point of view by any team in the United States. Doc takes on all comers, the bigger they are the better. Last season, games were scheduled with the teams who were leaders the previous year in every section of the country. Teams with such reputations as Southern California, West Virginia, and Syracuse were all on Nebraska ' s schedule, but owing to the unprecedented condition caused by the war it was found imperative to cancel the games which involved long trips. Stewart is never content to play teams of medium ability and uncertain prominence, but believes that even defeat at the hands of a team of unques- tioned prominence is better than a victory over a smaller school, which means nothing to a team which has established itself in the athletic world as our Cornhuskers have done. Doc has taken active charge of every major sport and directed his teams personally through the entire season. Few realize what a gigantic task this is for one man to undertake and carry to a successful end as Doc has done. Other schools generally have a coach for each of their major sports, but Stewart be- lieves in being in p ersonal touch with the personnel of each team and, through his keen judgment of men, has succeeded in winning the confidence of all his ath- letes in a way which no coach at Nebraska has ever before accomplished. Last spring Doc felt the call for men, qualified as he was, to direct the work of Y. M. C. A. Accordingly, he applied for a year ' s leave of ab- sence and was accepted for " Y " work at once. He went immediately to the Y. M. C. A. training station at Columbia University, New York, and after com- pleting his overseas training there was given his overseas transportation for August 10- However, on August 5 his arm became infected from a vaccination, and he was confined to the hospital for nearly a month. At one time it was thought that it would be necessary to amputate his arm, but through unceasing care it was saved, and after a long rest he was again put on active duty. At this time the need for athletic directors in our own army camps was so urgent that Doc ' s overseas orders were recalled, and he was sent to Camp Gordon, at Atlanta, Georgia, where he remained until the armistice was signed in Novem- ber. He realized then the urgent need of his services at Nebraska, and secured his release from the army, returning here the middle of December. As coach, Stewart has won the respect of every man who has come in contact with him and has received the unqualified support of the students and faculty of the University of Nebraska. He stands first, last and all the time for clean athletics, and has instilled in his men this spirit so firmly that the first requisite of an athlete is self-control and complete self-mastery, that Nebraska ' s teams have had a personnel which has been equalled by few schools in the country.

R. D. SCOTT, Manager. Early last fall it was realized by the Athletic department that Nebraska would be seriously han- dicapped, even though a new coach was secured to succeed Dr. Stewart as head coach, for a new man coming into a new place would not or could not be expected to be familiar with the conditions at Nebraska. To help overcome this obstacle which would confront the new coach. Professor Scott, who ever has manifested an active interest in all things pertaining to the good of the University, offered his services as Director of Athletics. Scott ' s knowledge of in- side conditions proved invaluable assistance to Coach Kline in taking care of much of the routine in connection with the coaching work. It was through the effort of Scott that the schedule was reorganized when the War Depart- ment issued orders prohibiting the long football trips, and it was he who secured the teams to meet Nebraska after the Spanish influenza had completely dernoralized football teams over the country. COACH W. G. KLINE The work of Coach Kline has long been known to Nebraska, through his ability to turn out teams at Nebraska Wesleyan. When Dr. Stewart was called for; service in the Y. M. C.. ., Kline was secured to fill his position until Doc ' s return. Consequently, upon him fell the burden of bringing a footliall team out of chao3. With the captain-elect in I ' Vance and only t ve old men back, around which to build a team, the outlook was indeed gloomy, especially for a new man. Kline, however, was never a man to let gloom of any kind keep him pessimistic, and so, as soon as school opened, he took active charge of the squad and began whipping them into shape. The conditions were very discouraging to any coach this year, but in spite of them he turned out a team which is generally felt to have been a credit to Nebraska and deserving of greater recognition than it w;i ' accorded in the Valley. ASSISTANT CO. CH PAUL SCHISSLER With all the work that was to be done last fall, it was apparent that it would be impossible for one man to begin to accomplish it, so Paul Schissler was called from Hastings high school to assist Kline in developing his football team. " Schiss " has long been a prominent figure at Nebraska high school basketball tournaments, having for the last three years entered teams here, and as a hard worker in athletics he is without equal. Not only does he spur his men on and on to the game, but he put on the mole- skins himself and many a Husker varsity man was detailed to the gym with a wrenched shoul- der or well-developed " charley horse " after try- ing to stop " Schiss " when he was playing in the freshman or " scrubs " lineup. Paul ' s fight was invaluable as an example to every man on the team, and it is rumored that his command of English is unlimited.

I u Captain ubka Ernest Hubka, captain of the 1918 Wartime Cornhuskers, bad the honor of leading the team which will probably always be known as the Cornhusker S. A. T. C. ' s. " Hub " hails from Beatrice, made Varsity for the first time in 1917, playing tackle and fullback, and in the latter posi- tion did some of the greatest line plunging ever done by a Nebraska fullback. He has two more years to play and should be a wonderful strength to future Cornhusker teams. —249- m T 5-1919 ,g c ) CohSliustef :q PAUL DOBSON, fullback, third year Paul Dobson, ' 20, captain-elect of the 1919 Cornhuskers, was a regular on the ' 16 and ' 17 teams, played two games on the ' 18 team, and Nebraskans are expecting him to play the best football of his college career as leader of the Nebraska Varsity in the hardest schedule ever. Dobby ' s specialty is punting, forward passing, open- field running and drop kicking. His rec- ord in these departments of the game is not surpassed by any former Comhusker. ELMER SCHELLENBERG, halfback, second year Schelley was one of the four old men around which this year ' s team was built, and those who saw him play last year know the fast, shifty brand of football which seems to come so natural to him. There was not a man in the ' alley who was more clever on his feet and at ad- vancing the ball than Schellenberg, and as a ground gainer he was second to none. Schelley made an enviable name for him- self as a halfback, and with two more years of the game left to play he will, without doubt, rank along with Nebraska ' s greatest gridiron heroes. HARRY HOWARTH, quarterback, first year Harry Howarth learned the gridiron game at West Point, Nebraska, playing there three years and captaining the team his last year. Harry played quarterback and ran the team with all the experience and cleverness of a veteran. His ability to return ])unts was one of the features of the whole alley and with a season ' s experience behind him, he will undoubted- ly be second to none at his quarterback job next year. —250— • gjil T t i9i9;-eg RICHARD NEWMAN, end, first year , ■ " Ditch " Newman is a Columbus prod- uct, fast, shifty and with worlds of speed. He played an end position and was al- ways down under Nebraska ' s punts, hold- ing his opponents in their tracks time and again. " Ditch " won his first letter this year. sec- HAROLD McMAHON, halfback, ond year Harold McMahon played four years with Lincoln High School, and there es- tablished his record for speed which he has upheld against all comers through his two- seasons of X ' arsity football. He was un- fortunately injured early in the season and was unable to play but few games. Mac plays a halfback position and with his speed and ability to lug the ball will do much toward keeping the ' alley cham- jMonship at Nebraska in his two remain- ing years. ROY LYMAN, tackle, first year Roy Lyman came to Nebraska from MacDonal, Kansas, and after a year ' s hard work with the Nebraska freshmen, developed into one of the most depend- able and strongest tackles in Nebraska ' s " stone wall. " As well as a tackle, he had the ability to hit the line from the back field, and on many occasions was pulled back to drive the ball through the line for the coveted yards. —251— ' e l Ti5 " i9i9 :K ' CdJ ttfcSslo ler M CLARENCE SWAN SON, end, first year Swanson came to Nebraska from Wake- field, and after a hard season with the freshmen last year, in which his collar- bone was broken, he stepped into an end position and held it creditably all year. " Swanie " is fast, shifty and completes forward passes with an uncanny degree of skill. RAYMOND JOBES, halfback, first year Raymond Jobes played two seasons with Tecumseh High School before com- ing to Nebraska. He made an enviable record as halfback during his freshman year here and won his spurs in the Var- sity game when he carried the ball for a total of 72 yards against Kansas, a record not equalled by any other man this season in a single game. He was compelled to give up the game before the season was over on account of injuries received in the Balloon School battle. Jobes has two more years in which to complete his record. EVERETT LANPHERE, end and center, first year Lanphere played his first football at York and was making good at the Var- sity pivot position when an early season injury put him on the sidelines for the majority of the season. He has two more years, however, and should prove a valu- able man in Doc Stewart ' s 1919 machine. -252— III! i i ' tnw i CoT kaiter BURCH REYNOLDS, fullback, first year Reynolds, although a senior, played his first college football this year with Ne- braska. He is a powerful back field man, with the rare ability to put exceptional fight into the game and yet not lose his head. He is a hard hitter and with more experience would rank with the best of line plungers. 1 EDWARD HOYT, guard, first year Hoyt played a guard position and was one of the hardest working and most con- scientious men on the squad. Handicapped by a lack of high school experience, he put all of his efforts into learning the game from the ground up, and through his ability to master the new and difficult, he won his first letter this year. EMMET ROSS, guard, first year Ross played his first year with Nebras- ka this season, and in spite of 260 pounds and five feet eight inches, made his op- ponents look slow.

He started the season at a guard position, but was called to a training camp before the season was fair- ly started. Cyp has fight to spare and is a conscientious, hard worker. His name will undoubtedly become more familiar in Nebraska athletics before his career is com- pleted. —254- HERBERT DANA, guard, first year Dana played a regular guard positiori until kept out of the game by a broken arm, when Nebraska met Notre Dame.

MONTE MUNN, center, first year Monte Munn played one year with Lin- coln High, establishing a name for him- self as an excellent tackle, being concedea all-state honors at that position last year. On entering the University of Nebraska, he was one of the five freshmen who had the unusual honor of playing ' arsity foot- ball his freshman year. Munn played every minute of every game at the center position and was a tower of strength on both offense and defense. " JIMMY " BEST " Jack " Best, known to more universit} men as " Jimmy, " has undoubtedly won a warmer place in the hearts of Nebraska ' s many athletes than any other man con- nected with the university. " Jimmy " has for twenty-nine years taken care of sore muscles, skinned shins and bruised knees for the heroes of the football gridiron, basketball court and cinder track and through his loyalty and genial smile he has endeared himself to every Nebraskan who has had the pleasure of forming an intimate acquaintance with him. —255— ml CoPSissSk - ' Dm easion EetJicb) Nebraska ' s football season can be considered a success in spite of the constantly changing conditions under which athletics were conducted this year. The old men who would naturally have expected to come back were scattered in Training Camps all over the United States, and many were fighting the battles of freedom in France when the first whistle sounded, inaugurating the 1918 season. The most serious loss and one keenly felt by the student body came, when Roscoe Rhodes, captain-elect, was called to Camp Funston in April, 1918. Rhodes received his training there and was sent across within three weeks after arriving at camp. After making several successful charges over the " top, " he was killed in action October 25, 1918, just sixteen days prior to the signing of the armistice. Word of his death hit the student body and the football team in par- ticular with an awful force, and made them realize fully that Nebraska was contribut- ing her best to defeat the Huns. Only three old men were back, around which to build a football machine. Captain Hubka. McMahon and Schellenberg alone represented last year ' s returns, all others being in military service at distant camps. Doc Stewart, Nebraska ' s all-year coach, had also been called to assist in keeping the boys physically fit through the work of the Y. M. C. A., and so, under this handicap of having only three old men back and no coach, Nebraska started her football season. Pref. R. D. Scott was elected to assume the responsibilities of athletic director, and to Coach Kline, as head coach, with Paul Schissler as assistant, fell the gigantic task of bringing a successful team out of the chaos. Late in September, the first call for practice was issued, and some sixty men re- ported, thirty of these being freshmen and at least fifteen of the remainder, men who were eligible to play under the conference rules, had had practically no football experi- ence. The hard grind began immediately with no preliminary conditioning work for the first game was scheduled for October 5 with the Iowa Hawkeyes. The task looked hopeless tintil just five days before the game, when the ban prohibiting freshmen from playing Valley football was lifted. It was agreed by the moguls of the Missouri Valley Con- ference that as conditions were so abnormal and that all schools were handicapped in the same way through loss of players that freshmen, for the first time in many yearsi would be permitted to participate in athletic contests until things again became more normal. This action naturally brightened the Cornhusker prospects, but did not come ( 3 s. -256— r i m I Tlw 919Si soon enough for the coaches to whip the freshmen into the Varsity hneups and give them the fundamental training .required to play the Varsity game. Were alibis necessary, Nebraska could claim, along with every other school in the Conference, that the unprecedented influenza epidemic made serious inroads on their team ' s progress. This plague caused an element of uncertainty in every game. Not alone in the personnel of the team, where changes were constantly being made necessary through the claim of the " flu " but also in the student body and in the other devotees of the game, was there an element of unrest and lack of interest. It was never surely known even on the eve of a game whether the teams would clash the following day or notj for bans on public gatherings were being enforced and lifted at all hours of the day and night. ' In spite of these difficulties and handicaps, Nebraska ' s wartime football team kept plugging away, preparing to uphold the justly earned title of Missouri Valley Champs, and due to the constant and untiring work of the coaches, along with the conscientious efforts of every man on the squad, the team began to assume shape and speed. Just prior to the lifting of the freshman ban, the Government took over the con- trol of the Valley sports, and so cut the Nebraska schedule, in order to eliminate the trips and curtail expense, that it was hardly recognizable after it was returned to us. The Syracuse game and the one scheduled with Morgantown, West Virginia, were both barred, and so the team had only one trip to look forward to through the entire season. The trip allowed was made to St. Louis, where Nebraska mixed with Dick Rutherford ' s Washington Pikers, December 7, 1918. THE IOWA GAME On October 5, Nebraska inaugurated her 1919 football season in a battle with Iowa. A-fter many shifts in our lineup and constant depletion of the ranks by men leaving for training camps, Nebraska had, by the middle of the preceding week, perfected the machine which was expected to meet Iowa. The next unusual circumstance to upset the dope proved a pleasing surprise to the coaches. Four days before the game, the Valley Conference ' Committee on eligibility decided, on the recommendation of the War Depart- ment, to abolish the rule prohibiting the participation by freshmen in Conference games. This necessitated another shift in the lineup, and in the space of a few days the fresh- then were whipped into shape, and the team was ready to meet the Hawkyes. The first half opened with restless playing on the part of both teams, but in the second half the veteran team from Iowa opened up their offense and pushed the ball over Nebraska ' s goal twice. These were the only scores of the game, and the referee ' s whistle closed the game with Nebraska on the short end of a 12 to score. In the first quarter, Ne- braska carried the ball to Iowa ' s 2-yard line, but the green team lacked the necessary push to put across the counters. Iowa punted out of danger and was never seriously threatened again. B -257- a 115-1919 [g CdSttkttskei- :q • THE BALLOON SCHOOL GAME The Omaha Balloon School met our gridiron warriors after a long rest of nearly a month caused by the inroads of the Spanish influenza. School was closed, and all games during the period were cancelled. On November 9, however, the Balloonists were de- cisively defeated by Nebraska by a score of 19-0. The first touchdown came in the first quarter, after thirteen minutes of play. Howarth, playing quarterback, carried the ball over the Balloonists ' goal from the 1-yard line. The second time Nebraska scored, Schellenberg, in the second quarter, after carry- ing the ball fourteen yards to the 1-yard line, plunged over the goal. The last touchdown was the most spectacular of the whole game. Schellenberg, from the middle of the field, carried the ball eighteen yards. Lantz added five more, and Newman completed a perfect pass from Howarth for twenty yards more. Here Nebraska was held, and an exchange of punts found the ball on the Balloonists ' 18-yard line. Hubka and Jobes, in two line smashes, carried the ball to the 5-yard line, and a pass from Howarth to Swanson, behind the goal line, raised Nebraska ' s tally to 19 points. The referee ' s whistle closed the game without the Nebraska goal being seriously threatened. THE KANSAS GAME In a sea of mud and a cold, drizzling rain, Nebraska continued her victorious march through the defense of the Kansas Jayhawks and defeated them, 20 to 0. The field was one mass of slimy, black ooze, and three minutes after the start of the game, the opposing players were indistinguishable from the stands. The first score came in the beginning of the second quarter on a touchback, when Kansas, in an attempt to punt, was thrown behind her own goal. After the kickoff inaugurating the second half the two teams exchanged punts, and the Cornhuskers rushed their opponents back to within one yard of the goal post, where the Jayhawkers punted out of danger. The Nebraska team was not to be stopped, however. They started a charge down the field which terminated when Jobes was ih ' i m: —258— ..-UJ Tiie l919 I CodRitSsfc :Gr NEBRASKA ON NOTRE DAMe ' s 3-YARD LINE pushed over the goal, bringing the count up to 8 to 0. Ten minutes later, after con- sistent gains by Jobes, Reynolds and Hartley, Swanson carried the ball over the Jayhawk goal for the second touchdown. In the last quarter, the ball was put in play on the Kansas 30-yard line. Nebraska was unable to get within striking distance for ten minutes, and then Kansas weakened under the merciless hammering of Nebraska ' s back field, and Reynolds and Jobes carried the ball to the 7-yard line. Here Kansas stiffened their defense, and for three attempts, Nebraska was unable to gain. However, on the fourth down, Swanson plunged through the Kansas line for another touchdown. Howarth ' s return of the Kansas punts was remarkable on a wet field with such a slippery ball. He hardly ever failed to retrieve from fifteen to thirty-five yards on the Jayhawkers ' kicks. THE CAMP DODGE GAME On November 23, Nebraska battled her way down an icy field to the very shadow of the goal posts on three different occasions, only to ram into a stone wall, meeting defeat at the hands of the Camp Dodge soldier team by a score of 23 to 7. The Huskers carried the ball for a total of 387 yards as against the " Dodgers ' " 180. The game was one of fumbles throughout, which proved only too costly to the Cornhuskers. The first touchdown of the visitors came on a fluke. Howarth, playing safety, dropped a punt, which rolled behind Nebraska ' s goal line and was recovered by Lunch, the Camp Dodge halfback. The second touchdown was negotiated by Coughlin, the visitors ' speedy quarter, after completing a 15-yard pass and sprinting forty-five yards through Nebraska ' s defense to the goal. The third and final touchdown was also credited to the midget quarter after a 62-yard run through an open field. The Nebraska counters came on a fumble when Dodge attempted to punt over the goal, and Swanson recovered, netting the Huskers 6 points. Howarth kicked goal, raising their total to 7. The last three points scored by the visitors came when Movald made a beautiful drop kick from the 35-yard line. THE NOTRE DAME GAME On a field which was nearly as wet as it was in the long-to-be-remembered Jayhawk- Cornhusker battle, Nebraska, in their Thanksgiving Day fray, held the far-famed Notre Dame eleven to a scoreless tie. A light snow had fallen during the night, and the crowd was not up to the usual Thanksgiving standard. m -259— : Cd ikSsker Nebraska played a strictly defensive game, punting out of danger rather than at- tempting to advance the ball by line plunges or end runs. Dobson practically alone de- fended Nebraska ' s goal with his punting. He kicked the ball in Nebraska ' s defense fifteen times during the game and clearly was far superior to Gipp, who did the kicking for the visitors. Nebraska only carried the ball sixty yards as against 177 for the Catholics, and nearly half of these were by the aerial route. The ball was kept in Notre Dame ' s territory practically the whole game by Dobson ' s accurate kicking. THE WASHINGTON GAME In the last game of the season, Nebraska bowed to Dick Rutherford ' s Washington " Pikers " at St. Louis on December 7. Nebraska jumped into the lead early in the second quarter, but was unable to maintain its advantage long, suffering defeat by a score of 20 to 7. The Piker players got going after this taste of blood by the Huskers and crossed Nebraska ' s goal three times, twice in the second quarter and once in the final frame. The most spectacular play of the game came late in the second quarter, when Simpson, the Star Piker quarter, shot a perfect pass to Feuerborn, who raced 73 yards through the Husker defense far a touchdown.

" Jack " as he. is familiarly known by his team mates played at Lincoln High, made Varsity in 1917 and as a sophomore was elected to lead the 1918 team. He ranks as one of the best forwards in the Missouri Valley, being second highest scorer with a total of 148 points to his credit. It was this showing which olaced him on the all-valley team. —264- Td msi W ELMER SCHELLENBERG Captain-Elect " Schelly " this year played his second season with the wearers of the scarlet and cream jerseys and proved to be the most adaptable man on the team. He started the season as a guard, was then shifted to center and worked equally as well as a forward when occasion demanded it. His speed and ability to work the ball down tjhe floor was of invaluable service to his teammates and time after time he drib- bled through all of his opponents and put the ball through the hoop himself. " Schelly " has one more year on the wax floor. CHARLES L. GILLILAN " Gilly " is a graduate of last year ' s freshman squad and has been one of the hardest workers and the speediest players on the Cornhusker five. His high school experience also put him in shape to step into varsity shoes when he became eligible. For four years he played with Hardy, Nebr., and in 1917, as captain of the team, came with his flippers to the state tourna- ment and entered Class B. Hardy won the cup after defeating West Point by a 26 to 11 score, and Gillilan was the star of the game. He played forward this year and has two more years to complete his record at Ne- braska. RICHARD NEWMAN " Ditch " Newman with his ready-made reputation as a basket hurler came to the university from Columbus, Nebr., two years ago. His reputation was established when he brought his quintet to the state tournament and fought up to the semi- jfinals against Omaha Central. He played three years on the high school team and was honored with the captaincy in his senior year. He flashed such a brilliant brand of basket shooting that he was placed on the all-state aggregation at the forward position. He has been playing a fast, heady game this year and has guarded his opponents like a hawk. His two more seasons in school should develop him into a world beater. -265- m T«g-1919 i C ot feSsta RUSSEL M. BAILEY Bailey has been taking his initial shot at varsity basketball this year and has been exhibiting some high class work. He played on the freshman aggregation in 1918 and was ripe for the first team this year. He was a member of the city league Armstrong quintet in 1917 along with ' Dick Newman and Schellenberg. Bailey played two years of basketball and two years of football and was captain of the track team at Hebron before he came to Nebraska in 1917. BURCH REYNOLDS " Buck " Reynolds donned a Cornhusker suit late in the season last year and proved his worth in the last two games of the season. He stepped into a regular berth this year in a guard position and was un- doubtedly one of the best basket guards in the Valley. He could always be counted upon to hold his man to a low score no matter how fast or how accurate a shot he was. He came to Nebraska from Madison where he had played three years of basketball. This is Reynolds ' last year. JESSE PATTY " Jess " from his showing with the fresh- men last year was expected to step into the varsity lineup this year. He played a fast and consistent game either as for- ward or center. Patty ' s early training was with Omaha High School where he played four years, being honored with a captaincy his last year. He has two more years of varsity basketball ahead of him, and is ex- pected to fill Captain Jackson ' s place next year at forward. -266— u a Tfs-1919 :g i OLDYN KACER " Swede " was also a member of last year ' s freshman quintet, coming to Ne- braska from Crete where he played three years of high school basketball. He han- dles the ball with extreme ease and clever- ness and should prove of valuable assis- tance in bringing a championship to Ne- braska in his two remaining years here. Kacer plays either at center or forward position with equal efficiency. WALLACE SPEAR " Wallie " is another basketball veteran who left for service with Uncle Sam and returned for the second semester. He im- mediately started working with the tearn upon his return and proved a valuable utility man, playing either forward or guard as occasion demanded. His home is in Genoa where he played two years of high school basketball. This is Spear ' s last year. JOHN PICKETT Pickett is one of the late additions to the Cornhuskers having returned to school the middle of February from the army. This is his second year on the varsity basketball squad. He played center and guard and could always be relied upon to add new fight to the game when he was sent in to relieve an exhausted man. Johnny comes from Scottsblufif where he played three years of basketball. He has one more year at Nebraska. -267— eas on Eebieto When " Doc " Stewart returned to resume his work at Nebraska he stepped immedi- ately on to the basketball court and began pointing the Cornhusker quintet for a valley conference championship. With Captain Jackson, Schellenberg and Reynolds, from last year ' s team, and the five promising freshmen of the previous year, Patty, Kacer, Newman, Bailey and Gillilan, the outlook for a successful season was very bright, indeed. There was no lack of material and practice started strenuously the first of December. All men were familiar with " Doc ' s " style of play and soon a classy looking bunch of aggressive fighters were bidding for places on the varsity team. With such men as Captain Paynter, Budd Smith, Youngmeier, Munn, Russel, and Austin Smith playing on the freshman team, there was the stififest kind of competition for the varsity in their daily practice. In fact the older men had to exert every effort in their practices to keep the yearlings from romping away with the long end of the score. The first game played by the varsity five was won from the Y. M. C. A. All Stars on New Year ' s eve by a one-point margin. This game was one of the five pre-season games which were played to prepare the Cornhuskers for their trip into Iowa. " Doc " Stewart ' s proteges took on the Omaha Balloon school and Camp Dodge quin- tets in four practice games prior to their opening Valley number, and they had no trouble in disposing of the Balloonists both times by 24 to 5 and 22 to 11 scores. The Dodgers were of a superior caliber, however, and the soldiers marched home with both games to their credit, winning the first by a score of 25 to 18, and the second, which was a terrific tussle, resulting 25 to 24 for the invaders. OPENING GAME TO HUSKERS The regular Missouri Valley season opened with a swing through Iowa territory, including two games with Drake and two with Grinnell, the baby member of the con- ference. January 22, the Huskers opened with a victory over the Drake Bulldogs by a score of 34 to 13. The lowans were outplayed in all departments of the game and stood no chance of winning. The following day, Nebraska took on the Grinnell basketeers, who had just recently been admitted to the Valley conference, and trimmed them by a safe margin of 24 to 14. Brilliant passing on the par t of Jackson and Gillilan accounted for the victory. The Grinnell youngsters came back in the second game with a surprising burst of speed and turned the tables on the Huskers, winning by a score of 16 to 15. Such a set- back was not the most encouraging thing that could have happened to the Huskers so early in the race, but the following day they again met the Drake Bulldogs and won handily 24 to 14. OPENS SEASON HERE Drake followed the Nebraska boys home and helped usher in the home season on January 30. The Bulldogs took the Huskers by surprise and grabbed the first encounter by a margin of six points, but lost the return number by ten points. A big effort was made to resuscitate the fast-dying Nebraska spirit at the Washing- ton-Nebraska games the following week and with the help of over a hundred legislators the gym was stuffed to the cobwebs with howling supporters. The Huskers took both games from the Missourians, the first 35 to 25 and the second 28 to 13. Two hard fought games against the Missouri Tigers on February 14 and 15 resulted in a double victory for Nebraska. She climbed from third to second place in the stand- : kj:2222i) -268— l Qtp ITC i ings and shoved the conference leaders down to third. The score of the first game was 28 to 26 and the second was 21 to 14. Ames refused to play in the Nebraska gymnasium and the games set for February 21 and 22 were cancelled. The Huskers took a lay-off until they invaded the Kansas country on March 5 for two games with the Jayhawkers and two with the Kansas Aggies. Cornhusker hopes of a valley championship began to fade when the Jayhawks took the first game 31 to 17, but revived somewhat when they handed the second to Nebraska by a 29 to 24 score. Said hopes bumpe d into oblivion when the Kansas farmers took the last two numbers 34 to 33 and the second 30 to 21. The last pair of games on Nebraska schedule were played at home on the Armory floor during the state high school tournament with Grinnell college of Iowa. The high school boys packed the old gym to watch the varsity game and saw Grinnell decisively defeated the first game by a score of 27 to 15. Nebraska played fast snappy ball work- ing the ball down the floor by dazzling accurate passing and playing it through the hoop. The second game found Grinnell with two changes in her lineup and these proved effective for the Cornhuskers lost the game by a single point. The score being 22 to 21. NEXT YEAR ' S PROSPECTS In considering the prospects for next year Nebraska ' s outlook is particularly bright. Of the old men Captain Jackson and Reynolds are the only ones who have finished their varsity careers, and with such men as Paynter, Youngmeier, Smith and Russel to take their places it will be necessary for the old men to show some real class to hold down their jobs next year.

Lincoln and Omaha, former contenders for Class A honors, were eliminated before the finals were reached. In Class B, Sutton defeated the Arlington team which had been con- sidered by many to have more than an even chance to win Class B.

Twice he has broken the Nebraska high hurdle rec- ord, setting the mark at 15 3-5 seconds while he was Conference champion last year. It is to be hoped that he will return from overseas service in time to take his place on the team of this year. MERLE TOWNSEND Captain in his second and last year of varsity track, proved to be one of the most consistent men on the team. As a point maker, he was one of the two most dependable members of the squad and could always be depended upon to place in his event. He was a member of the mile relay team which won first place at the K. C. A. C. meet. ERNEST HUBKA On Hubka depended a great part of Nebraska ' s success in the discus and shot events. He scored with the discus in all meets, winning against Ames with a throw of 116 feet. GLEN GRAF Graf was all but unsurpassed as a two-miler in the Missouri Valley and showed himself to be the strongest miler in the Valley by winning that event at the Conference meet. Because of his efforts in this event he was forced to take second place in the two-mile run that same day, losing first by a narrow margin. He is the only two-miler on the present squad, and his performances are looked foward to as a feature of the 1919 season. HARRY KRETZLER Kretzler won his letter by winning the mile from Ames and Kansas and by scoring points in prac- tically every race he entered, even the two mile event in some instances. HI —275— 1 919 1 |j CdJSduiiW E u. WILSON BRYANS " Billy " is another man who has been on the var- sity squad for two years and is known as a consist- ent runner. His strong point lies in the relays, but he is also something of a sprinter. HAROLD GERHART " Buzz " won his first track letter last season. He is the first Nebraska pole-vaulter for several years to do 11 feet 6 inches. With this experience, he should be a leader in the Valley this year. CHESTER GRAU Grau, a veteran of two years, ran his last for Ne- braska during the past season. He was one of the fastest half-milers in the Valley and was also a member of the mile relay team which won at the K. C. A. C. meet. D. V. STEPHENS " Steve " sprung one of the sensations of the 1918 track season at Kansas City in March when he raced into second place in the quarter-mile open race against a field of veteran stars. He was prevented from much further participation by illness until late in the season when he was a member of relay teams. WAYNE MUNN " Big " Munn came through fast in the weights at the end of the 1918 season winning the shot and discus from Kansas and taking second and third respectively in these events at the Missouri Valley meet. . o —276— m: m i BYRON McMAHON The strongest half-miler of this year ' s squad, " Mac " is also something of a quarter-miler and will undoubtedly come through noticeable in the coming season. His best feat of 1918 consisted of the sur- prise which he sprung at Lawrence in the Kansas dual meet by winning the half-mile from Murphy, the veteran Jayhawker. ARTHUR YORT " Art " was a valuable member of the mile relay team although handicapped by an injured knee from brilliant performance in the quarter. Yort was a member of the winning mile relay team at the K. C. A. C. meet last spring. HAROLD McMAHON The work horse of the 1918 team, he won the 100 and 440 in all dual meets of the season and was never behind second place in the 220. Coupled with these events, he ran either in the mile or half-mile relay in all meets and occasionally ran the low hurdles. He was second at the Missouri Valley Conference meet in the 100 and 220, pushing Scholtz to a mark of 9 4-5 seconds in the 100. ELMER SCHELLENBERG The past season was " Schelly ' s " first as a trackster and his work was mostly along the line of weights. However, he was a member of the half-mile relay team which won second place at the Conference meet. FRANCIS FLOOD In the high hurdles Flood was second to Finney in several meets and he took third in this event at the Conference meet.

P. Troendly 125 class, Captain The wrestling season was limited to one intercollegiate dual meet with the Ames Aggies. Owing to utter lack of funds in the athletic department, Dr. R. G. Clapp coached the team free, devoting a great deal of time to the team, and accompanying them to Ames. The Athletic department as well as the members of the team take this means to express their appreciation of Dr. Clapp ' s work in coaching the team. The Cornhusker team invaded the Aggie camp, February 21, and lost by a score of 7 to 32, although the score is one sided every match was closely contested. Ed. Hoyt in the heavyweight class lost to Breeden of Ames, after a hard tussle. Paul Dobson met with Schaulk of Ames, one of the Valley ' s best 175 pounders, and fought so well a defensive game against him that the much tooted Aggie Captain was never near beating " Dobbie. " This is the first match in several seasons in which the Ames Captain has not won by falls. Rudy Fuchs lost the first bout of his match by a decision but came back and pinned his man in fine fashion in the second bout, only to lose the third bout and his match by a rather questionable decision from the re feree. George Salter, a new man this year, lost his first bouts, and his match by decision. H. P. Troendly beat Jillson, the Aggie 125 pound man, in two straight falls, one in 4:50 minutes and the other in 6:50 minutes. As there was no 145 pound man on the Cornhvisker team, Troendly was substituted in this weight, and was matched against Thompson, one of the Aggies best men. Troendly, altho being outweighed 20 pounds, did not lose to Thompson by falls, but lost by decision after the fall periods had been used- ■ —280— i t Oi —281— )t mMni itviitv Wrestling tournament The Wrestling Season closed with the big All-University Wrestling Tourna- ment in which twenty-one contestants took part. The meet was open to any uni- versity man, but Captain Troendly and " Rudy " Fuchs voluntarily withdrew from the tournament. Both had won wrestling letters and decided to stay out and leave their classes open to the new men. The winners of the All-University Tournament were : 135 lb. class. 145 lb. class. 158 lb. class. 175 lb. class. . Salter Varsity . Wertz Freshman . Bates Varsity . Perry Freshman Heavyweight Munn, Monte Freshman prospects for 1920 Next year promises to be the real bumper year in all lines of sports, and wrestling is coming in for its share. There will be an abundance of material out next year, including every member of this year ' s team, except Fuchs, and a world of excellent men who are now Freshmen. There will be a good supply of heavyweights, with Ed. Hoyt back, Monte Munn and J. Pucelik, the two latter being Freshmen who won medals at the Nebraska State Amateur Tourna- ment, held in Omaha, March 29- Monte Munn looks like a future demon while Pucelik has a good working knowledge of the game, as he has spent many a workout with the famous Stecher, of Dodge, Nebraska. In the 175 pound class Dobson will be back, with Gayle Pickwell, who won second place in that class at the Omaha tournament. Perry in this class is a strong prospect, having won first honors in the All-University tournament. In the 158 pound class a big hole will be left by Fuchs. There were several promising wrestlers in this class however this year who were eclipsed by Fuchs. Chief among these was John Gibbs, who showed considerable strength and skill in the try-outs in which he was runner — up to Fuchs. Other strong contenders in this class are Slater, Sandstedt and Bates. In the 145 pound class there will be no lacking of material next year as there are two candidates at this weight who were Freshmen this year, Wertz and Brock. Wertz won second place in his weight at Omaha and is a sure comer. In the 135 pound class Salter will be back to meet the competition of several others who showed up quite well this year ; the two strongest of these probably being Eaver and Ingham. Troendly will again compete for the 125 pound class. —282- M Wr ' i iQ c Uir ATHLET C lii Ai lcfi HZ -283- 7 ' ' T% W « ' 3liA MBMMMMaMMIMIIIIMMIMiMtHiH)i ' M ' ' l M| Womtn ' tljlctic sisiociatton DeSautelle Surber Brigham Springer Hostetter Fenzel CuUen Story Hoagland Stephens Girard Barstow Maloney Members of the Women ' s Athletic Association Marjorie Barstow Eleanor Bennett Ida Berquest Fae Breese Ruth Brigham Margaret Cowden Irene Cullen Helen Curtice Gertrude DeSautelle Jeanette Doyle Emma Fenzel Madeline Girard Donna Gustin Marjorie Haycock Martha Hellner Gertrude Henderson Helen Hewett Ethel Hoagland Doris Hostetter Ruth Hutton Rose Kastle Katherine Kohl Opal Lintz Patricia Maloney Julia Mockett Helen Morris Harriet Muneke Annabell Ramslam Pansy Read Lesa Richards Elizabeth Rose Alice Schott Mary Shephard Irene Springer Mary Stephens Lillian Stprey Josephine Strode Sara Surber Ruby Swenson Ruth Swenson Marjorie Temple Janet Thornton Mary Waters Mary Witherow Lucile Woods Helen Black Basse Cram Ruth Dubois Grace Dobesh Ruth Fickes Erma Quesner Mary Hardy Margaret Henderson Martha Krogman Ruth Lindsay Genevieve Loeb Lucile Mauck Eleanor Snell Marvel Trojan Ruby Wolfenden —284- m M The Women ' s Athletic Association, which has proved to be so stimulating in building up enthusi- asm for women ' s athletics, was Oirganized March 29, litlT, and had for its first officers: Camilla Koch, president; Daisy Parks, vice-president; Beatrice Uierks, secretary-treasurer, and Lillian Wirt, record- ing secretary. The a sociation was organized under the influence and with the help of Dorothy Baldwin and Jessie Beghtol Lee, instructors in the depart- ment of physical training. The point system of awarding honors, which has proved so successful, was worked out for Nebraska women with their as islance. In the spring of 1917, delegates from all over ihe United States called to the University of Wisconsin for the purpose of founding a national woman ' s athletic association. Nebraska wished to be represented alongside the many leading and minor institutions making provision for delegates and mem- bership. When encouragement and assistance were to be found nowhere else, the help of Professor Louise Pound of the department of English litera- ture and of Dr. H. K. Wolfe of the department of Mrs. Jessie Beghtol Lee philosophy, who was a member of the University athletic board, was enlisted. Dorothy Baldwin was sent to represent Nebraska at Madison. On her .return, the local organization was founded, athletics for women placed on a firm basis. The W. A. A. has elected two " life members " , Jessie B. Lee, to whose power of inspiring enthusiasm, zest for work, and efficiency as a coach for all types of sports, the organization owes much, and Professor Louise Pound whose help it has several times suc- cessfully enlisted. Mrs. Lee is a skilful tennis, golf, and basketball player, a good skater and swimmer, and is unusually adept at liaseball. Miss Pound has an athletic record easily explaining her election to life membership. Beside holding many minor championships, in men ' s as well as women ' s tennis events, she has held the ' varsity championship in men ' s tennis, hai been state cham- pion, and when a student at the LIniversity of Chicago, she won the woman ' s Western championship in singles, having to defeat the national champion of that year to do so. She has also held firsts in women ' s doubles in Western and Central Western competitions. She has long been local golf champion and she won the state golf championship in the years in which she competed. She skates, has a string of century bars from the days of cycling, has been captain, manager, and coach for women ' s basketball, and — with Mrs. Lee as catcher — has pitched successful ball games between alumna teams and the victoriou; interclass baseball teams. The following are the women ' s records established by the W. A, A. in the two years of its existence, and their holders : 25 yard da h — 3 4-5 seconds. Florence Simmons. 50 yard dash — 6 4-5 seconds. Camilla Koch. Baseball throw (official league ball u;ed). 2C7 feet and ?. inches, Helen Hewett. Running high jump. 4 feet 2 inches. Hazel Robinson.

The inter-sorority tournament was played off the same day with sixty girls representing ten of the fourteen Greek letter organiations in the university. The Delta Zetas carried off the honors and won the si lver loving cup awarded by the W. A. A. The inter-class tournament was the last to be played off and repre- sented the best co-ed basketball ma- terial in the university. The sopho- mores, after a close game, won the final round from the freshmen by a twenty-four to twenty score and were the first to place their class year on the new championship lov- ing cup awarded by Mrs. R. G- Clapp, head of the woman ' s phys- ical education department.

Two years ago Nebraska girl athletes brought English soccer football into our midst. The girls as a whole took up the game with vigorous en- thusiasm and developed a high grade of proficiency. The first fall, two excellent teams were developed, an upper and a lower class team. Three match games were staged between these squads and each of them, after a fierce battle, ended without a single score on either side. The second year, the soccer season was so frequently interrupted by the unfavorable health conditions that it was impossible to develop teams. The girls, however, kept up their practice and are waiting only for another season to renew the game with added interest and more ability. The game was first played in America in 1880, when it was intro- duced by Englishmen. Since this time interest in it has grown rapidly, and the prospects are that soccer football will become the most popular athletic sport in the world. Nebraska is among the first schools to develop the game for girls and she has succeeded in setting a splendid standard. m —290— ya ta igiQ I Tennis; In 1918, the Women ' s Athletic Associa- tion conducted a spring tennis tournament, in which there were more than twenty girls entered. Of this number, the four who reached the semi-finals were : Ruth Welsh, Ruth Brigham, Ruth Swensen, and Ruby Swensen. Rulh Brigham defeated Ruth Welsh, and Ruth Swensen defeated Ruby Swensen. The finals were several times postponed on account of wet courts, and at the time finally set for them, Ruth Swensen failed to appear, an;! the championship went to Ruth Brigham. All the matches were very well played, and a great deal of interest was shown by university students as a whole. The tourna- ment has become one of the annual events of the Nebraska association. II ©racfe Ruth Brigham ■ Grace Nichols Helen Hewitt Blanche Higgins At the girls ' track meet, held May 11, 1918. Grace Nichols, ' 18, carried off first honors with four first places; Blanche Higgins, ' 18, held second place with three first places and one third place; and Helen Hewett, ' 19, ranked third with three first places. The senior relay team finished first with the fol- lowing runners: Nellie Bloodgood, Beatrice Koch. Christine Hanson, Grace Nichols, Blanche Higgins. and Beatrice Dierks. The sophomores finished second with Sue Stille, Martha Hellner, Patricia Maloney, Ruth McKenney, Doris Bates, and Janet Thornton. The freshmen finished third with Donna Gustin, Margaret Cowden, Emma Fenzel, Sara Surber, Louise Pedrett and Gertrude Henderson. -291— W M l m tuimming f? The 1918 swimming meet was the second annual girls " meet conducted by the Women ' s Athletic Association. It was held in the Lincoln high school pool, and each of the four classes was represented by a team of six girls. The contest included competition in the various strokes as to form, races, plain and fancy diving, and endurance swimming. Some splendid swimmers were entered in the meet, and the results of the various events were close. The members of the class ' 20 team won the entire meet with 42 points. The following girls were members of the winning team : Harriet Holly, captain, Irene Springer, Ruth Hutton, Patricia Maloney, Ruth McKenney and Ruth Brigham. Helen Curtice, ' 19, won the first individual honors, and Eleanor Frampton, ' 18, held second place. i —292- ■.t.. ' .stJ -iy ;-f.,r«i ' ' yfi aei !» ■■ e| " Tiiri9i9 ; " G HONORARIES i !

They are representative of the men who have shown the greatest interest in the welfare of the school, in the underclasses. The society was organized April 24, 1903, as the result of four or five years of deliberate consideration of the needs and place of .such a body. Form er Dean Roscoe Pound, present dean of Harvard Law College, said : " The very purpose of its existence was to furnish a compact corps of harmonious workers, where college spirit and enthusiasm might be generated; to give a body of men who would be pledged to put their shoulders to the wheel in all University undertakings ; to be a guiding central body to lead in those things that fail in the University of Nebraska, because, being left to the student body in general, the old maxim applies, ' What is everybody ' s business is nobody ' s business ' . " This standard the Innocents have since attempted to follow. They have aided in getting valuable athletic material ; have been in charge of football rallies and torch light parades, and have chosen the cheer leaders to lead in these celebrations. It is the Innocents who conduct the Freshman Convocation ■ at the beginning of each school year and present to the new men of the Uni- versity their first ideas and conceptions of student life. They supervise the annual Olympics between the Sophomores and Freshmen, and manage Corn- ' husker banquets. They have aided and co-operated with both faculty and stu- ident body in a number of diflferent enterprises such as War Work campaigns. War Camp Community Service parties for soldiers, Cornhusker mixers. Sneak Day, the annual shirt-tail parade. Fete Day, Omaha Day, University Night and University Extension Week. They have gathered statistics from all the larger schools of the United States concerning the operation of Single Tax and have tried to formulate it into the best possible working plan for Nebraska. They have also taken steps toward working out a feasible plan for the operation of a Student Council. It is their purpose to perpetuate and strengthen all the worthy activities and traditions of Nebraska, and to advance University interests at every possible point. Once a year, on Ivy Day, they show themselves to the public in the robes of their offices, at which time they go out among the student body and tap their new members. They have always maintained the strict policy of " no advertising, " always attempting to make it appear that the movement came from the student body rather than from the Senior society.

All of these societies were or- ganized for the purpose of encouraging research among students of education. Phi Delta Kappa is a fraternity founded upon educational principles and supports the highest academic and professional ideals. Its aims are : To bring about the co-operative endeavor of a body of men for the promotion of education as a profession. To lead to a wholesome inter-action between theoretical and practical education. To foster a fraternal spirit between departments of education that may encourage the training of men for leadership. To inspire social efficiency through reaction to the problems of applied education as brought about by the various agencies concerned with the promotion of skilful service in the schools of the state. The Nebraska chapter of Phi Delta Kappa with a present membership of ninety-five men was organized June 12, 1914, supplementing the list of chapters existing in nearly all the great seats of learning in America. —802— s p:)oi oi ± Px si Tfi l919 i liitUii.liiliiliHJir Mttv-Soxovitp Council Miss McPhee, Chairman Miss Helen Dill, Vice-Chairman Alpha Chi Omega Winifred Williams Alpha Delta Pi Louise Enochs Alpha Omicron Pi Margaret Perry Alpha Phi Katherine Newbranch Alpha Xi Delta Augusta Kibler Chi Omega Helen Edgecombe Delta Delta Delta True Jack Delta Gamma Janet Thornton Delta Zeta Mabel MacAdams Gamma Phi Beta Sarah Heitter Kappa Kappa Gamma Helen Curtice Kappa Alpha Theta Helen Dill Pi Beta Phi Dorothy Pierce -303- m m .Q w [ fctiifcpi ' E cfjotf) Tourtelot Mackprang llutton Ream Reed Porterfield Snethen Beaumont Parsons Bayley Newmeyer Rhoda Begley Mote Muzzy Johnson Phillip Curry Brown Davison North Nuss Steiger .. fl f —304— TfS 1919 ; m j Cm flioslfcei cfjoti) Founded at Nebraska University, ipio Aleph Chapter, Established igio MEMBERS IN CITY Mrs. Mrs. Miss Miss Miss Mlss Mrs. Miss Miss Ethel Stone Benst Miss Aural Scott Burr Miss Frances Chatburn Mrs. Roberta Chipperfield Miss Clara Belle Green Mrs. Edna Green Mrs. Mable Daniels Gramlich Miss Alice Humpe Miss Gretchen Mackprang Mrs. Elsie Mathews Valentine Minford Florence Sandy Schafer Ruth Sinclair Inez Viele Santon Dorothy Good Wood Etta Yout Llly Yout Cleo Gather Young MEMBERS IN UNIVERSITY POST-GRADUATE Margaret Lewis, College of Medicine, Omaha SENIORS Nina Baker Gladys Beaumont Hazel Snethen HuLDA Steiger Opal Ni ss JUNIORS Ruth Hutton Alfreda Mackprang Loy Ream Margaret Tourtelot SOPHOMORES Ruth Begley Marian Mote Bernice Bayley Ruth Brown Ethel Curry Dorothy Davison Mildred Johnson Hazel Muzzy Helen Newmyer Eva Rhoda FRESHMEN Katharine North Marjorie Parsons Myrtle Phillips .7 ADA PoRTERFIELD Florene Reed ii5iKer F?r?

This unique club has grown from an original membership of fifteen to the present number of twenty-eight Although purely social in character the Twins " Club has for the last two years supported a pair of French orphan twins. As a club they con- tributed to several other war activities. The size of the club is limited by fate. But those who by fortune or misfortune are twins are privileged to enjoy membership in this most exclusive of clubs. -3S3- Wr m W m allabian Hilling Wilson F. Caldwell Lowry A. Buchta Freeman Nettleton E. Jones R. Jones E. Caldwell Allen Sturdevant Kingig E. Adams Stahl Taylor Palladian, Nebraska ' s oldest social group, was organized in October, 1871, a week after the University first opened its doors. It might very properly be called the " Big Sister " of all the societies which have since flourished on the campus, from Phi Beta Kappa to the Golden Fleece. There are Palladians scattered all over the world. They include three Chinese missionaries, civil engineers in South America and India, college professors in Hawaii and Turkey, a Boy ' s -Work director in India, and a judge in Shanghai, to say nothing of soldiers in France, Germany and Russia. Palladian stands for the best in college life, for loyalty toward the school and the group, for activity in both, and for fellowships unspoiled by sentimentality. Like other university societies, Palladian has had to spend most of this year in recovering from the shock of the war. We have had time, however, to develop a male quartet and an orchestra worth listening to. The " freshmen, " who outnumber the old members three to one, are show- ing their nettle, and we expect great things from them in the years to come.

Its members are looking forward to active missionary .service in foreign lands. It is interdenominational in scope, and has for its aim the uplift of the unfortunate peoples of the world. Never before have opportunities been so numerous and alluring. Not only every phase of educational and medical work are demanded, but agriculture, engineering and forestry. Most important, however, is the evangelization of the world, which requires evangelists and Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. secretaries. Trained specialists and experienced men and women are becoming leaders by answering these urgent calls. They believe in world democracy and plan to inculcate its principles. Vice-President Fairbanks made the statement that a well equipped mission sta- tion is worth a whole fleet of war ships in preservation oi the peace of the world, which was substantiated by Rear-Admiral Mayo of the U. S. Navy. Out of thirteen members of our branch organization, three expect to sail this fall, Mr. and Mrs. Stanhope Pier, for Japan in the interest of the Y. M. C. A., and Nelda L. Grove who goes to Korea to engage in educational work. (2 —398- m 1B5M919S : !l —899- e | THe QlQ ics t k r m 1 1919 Cornftusfeer H " ] ROBERT S. WENGER Editor-in-Chief NEIL T.

A new custom was started this year of picking six freshmen to work on the Cornhusker stafif, with the idea that one of them would become editor-in-chief in his senior year. Thus with four years ' experience, they will be more familiar with the work and will be able to put out a better Cornhusker because of the knowledge they have gained. Of the six freshmen, Bruce McCullough, Morley Cassidy, Mark Hooper, Benjamin Lake, Sago Ross and Leonard Cowley, all of whom have worked very well, I am glad to recommend : Morley Cassidy, Benjamin Lake, and Sago Ross, who have shown themselves to be more dependable and better fitted for this position. !l tf] —401— 1) CafSkaikei-E CO. i;f)e Bail? £thvaiUn The Daily Nebraskan rt, it. r . rr;u.

This organization at the University of Nebraska, crystallizing its ideals of the national press, is made up of men who are fundamentally interested in the press and at the same time of men who have been most active in juornalistic lines at Nebraska. The fraternity is national, being supported by twenty-eight active chap- ters and two alumni chapters, including such notable schools as DePauw, Michigan, Purdue, Leland Stanford, Wisconsin and Grinnell. The organ- ization was ten years old on the seventeenth of April and is supported by such alumni as Albert Shaw, editor of Review of Reviews, and H. H. Windsor, publisher of Popular Mechanics and Cartoons. The purpose of Sigma Delta Chi at Nebraska is fundamentally to pro- mote the interests of journalism. However, they are the publishers of Awgwan, the Nebraska college comic, which is printed every month of the college year. The staff of this magazine is selected by members of Sigma Delta Chi and from members of this organization. Membership in the fra- ternity is by invitation and invitation is a natural result of efifort and energy put forth for the better interests of all school publications. The organization is exclusive, but only exclusive to those who have not portrayed an untiring efifort for the advancement of one of the greatest arts, journalism. Mtmhtva in igma JBtlta. Ctt Osw.

Should there be those among you who do npt feel that we have given you justice, name the alley and the weapons, and the reception committee will be glad to listen to your grievances. There may be puns and spasms of deep-seated wit which many would think had best been omitted. We cannot blame those who may so believe, for before we began this section, we, also, were human and chewed gum. But we have fallen, to the subtle ban of humor and have gone forward with never so much as a falter or a regard as to when we shall die. Our policy ' has been to leave the likes and dislikes to the subscribers, whom we have earnestly endeavored to protect. We have been gentle, to the point of martyrdom, in our treatment of the faculty, not because of back papers, semes- ter grades or because of the board of censors, but rather because there is that atom of love and reverence which will not die and which defies us to cast the stone of slander or gossip upon that body. We have striven in these dead columns to please the vanity of our subscribers and their love of notoriety and should there be those among you who should resent, it should be remembered that in our waste basket is a pile of material which had to deal with better folks than you and yet we spurned it. Why? Be- cause we are just to a fault and printed only that which we thought you would like and write and tell your mother about. The inside lights of college life are not easily obtainable, but we have spared no efforts and we shall introduce to you both the inside scandal and the outside gossip, but we do it with a fervent hope that what we say shall remain with the hearer and that you shall consume the content of the famous poem which we have printed upon the following page. Should there be any disciple of publicity whom we have omitted, we shall be glad to kneel on our bended knees and crave indulgence, for no man or woman is perfect, and we are composed of both men and women, of which a large majority expect to attend school elsewhere the coming year, for obvious reasons. We salute the board of censors. We hope that they will see the labor and the effort that we have squandered upon these pages rather than upon our mid- semesters. If you like it, boost it, and if you don ' t like it, compare it with the picture of the freshman class and you will eventually like it. With mallets toward none, we offer you this department of the Victory Annual — the Cornhusker of Cornhuskers. -412- e l Tfg-1919-.g »ii m I I It ' s funny when the world ' s so large That it can be so small ; That little things count heavy And the big ones not at all, That tho ' you thought you ' d covered Little sidesteps that you ' d done, The world ' s a soul of countless ears And it uses every one.

You don ' t know " Dobbie? " Well, he isn ' t very well known around this here school — he ' s never done much exceptin ' to play football a bit, and to wrestle a little, and to buy diamond rings with thirty-seven stones, and to run the " N " club, and a few little things like that, but now he ' s well on the road to fame by the musical comedy route. Sing? Boy, that Dobson has a voice that would make any bird that ever had wings shed his feathers from sheer envy ! Well, as I said, he ' s busted into opery. It seems as how them Delta Gamma girls, what live in the white stucco house down there on Fourteenth street, de- cided to earn some kale for the Belgian Babies, and they figgered as how they ' re a pretty keen-looking bunch, and that they could rake in more cash by putting on a song and dance act for the admirin ' public than any other way. Then they figgered as how they needed a man to sing with them, and after a long and heated conflab, they decided to ask " Dobbie. " Now, " Dobbie " is sort of violet-like, modest and unassuming, and he was not at all enamored of the idea of becoming the matinee idol of the town, but the dear sisters were undaunted. On bended knees, they implored him to lend his vocal efforts and charming presence to the scene, telling him that they always thought of him as a brother (I don ' t know why) and that it was his duty. " Dobbie " did. Yeah, you know he did, and you should have seen him — dress suit, and listen, Mandy, " Dobbie " had rouge on him, all over his cheeks, and lots of bluish stuff around his eyes — he was enough to make Miss Conklin ' s heart go flop. Sing? Gee whiz, but he sang, and all of those twelve pretty and versatile Delta Gammas around him ; well ! ! ! ! ! And those girls ! Never to my dying day will I forget the way old Kath and that Harrington girl, and she that goes with Glen Hopkins, and the rest of the gang danced and sang. The Winter Garden had nothin ' on the Rialto in those days. The Alpha Sig ' s all sat on the front row. They told me it was to make " Dobbie " know that his friends would stick by him no matter what he did — but after I saw that show — and I had to sit in the back row — I guess " Dobbie " wasn ' t the only reason that they did ! -416— I Cofifeil lg] Remember how different were the Heaven and Hell our mothers used to tell us about? Well, she didn ' t have a monopoly on such ideas; just look at the stellar lights on our campus. Well, now, Walter Blunk, for an example of the difference of opinions as to the con- ception of Heaven. Walter thinks that Heaven is the final reward for those who, during their stay down here among the wicked, directed the world (trafficly speaking) either to the left or to the right — a sort of a huge ball game in which he is the pitcher, catcher, the infield, the outfield, the ticket seller and taker, the guy who peddles the pop and brick ice cream, parks the autos and chases the foul balls. Well, that ain ' t no job for Walter, because somebody has got to write the press account, and if he don ' t do it, then it ain ' t Heaven. And now comes our old friend of the unadvised and undecided women — Ernie Graves. Dear Ernie, how the women love to hear him give to them the advice which he can so truthfully give because it was this same advice which wrecked Ernie ' s life when he was still young. Now we shall pass on to the Pi Phis, whose idea of Heaven is a place where there are no house rules and where they are allowed to entertain their fellers out on the front verandy until way after ten-thirty and the bats have given wing, as it were. I know how hard it is for a few of the dear girls to say : " Lemuel, though I would rather have my tonsils taken out than to tell you this, it ' s after ten-thirty, and the rules say that all gentleman callers shall be looking for their hat at about a quarter after ten, so as to be two blocks nearer home when the clock on the mantle cuckoos. " The down-rightedest idea of Heaven comes from the Phi Psis. Now the Phi Psis are perhaps the keenest gang in school. Not that I say this because of activities or ac- tions, but because they admit it themselves. Now, can you imagine their idea of Heaven? Well, the truth about it, just between you and I, is they look at Heaven as sort of a town or city in which the mayor, city council, police force and important offices are held by the Phi Psis. You see what I mean? A kind of " The world is mine " place, and well — you know what I mean. But the sad part of this eulogy is seen from the vision of the Beta ' s. You see, the Betas were hard hit by the call of old man war, and we respect ' em for that but regard- less, they have an idea of Heaven that cannot be left from this here scribble of the quill (that was well stated, wasn ' t it, George?) Well, the Beta ' s idear of Heaven is a chapter with a charter and a house in which all the radiators from the basement to the attic are all het up and there is more than one bed and where there is a house table with food for every meal instead of meal tickets at Nick ' s chili parlor on Fourteenth and O. That ' s them as they is, folks, the important decisions of various parties on the con- ception of Heaven each in their own words and, of course, it ain ' t my place to say anything i —417— rr isM CoS Sfeaikei- about what has already been said, yet I will say that I think these ideas of Heaven ain ' t legal, inasmuch as St. Peter, who stands there with enough keys to unlock all the prisons in the world, wouldn ' t accept them as passin ' , but I have writ and I cannot detract what is writ, so, good friends, take counsel and endeavor to see the true light of these prejudiced decisions. Although these ideas probably wouldn ' t pass old St. Peter ' s censor, they are really no farther apart than the various campus ideas of the place where there is fire and water and all the inhabitants work overtime. For instance, look at Leonard Kline, so long a Bushnell Guild celebrity and now a Phi Delt back number. His idea of Hell, " From what I hear. " is where he has opposition in every political campaign, and the opposition always wins, so he sayeth. Or Frances Bartlett, who, intimately speaking, rates himself as about the slickest slicker with the women that ever inhaled Nick ' s greasy chili. Bart has Hell figured out as- a place where there are no women to take him to the " Sun, " let him chew the Literary Digest a while in the parlor and ask him to come out again next month. And so we could go on and tell others — but what ' s the use? We will simply say like the brakeman on the soda fountain — " What ' s Your ' s? " We may boast Nebraska ' s men who fought the Hun, These men, so praised, deserve it, every one ; But curly heads brave many kinds of curls. And — there ' s quite a bit oi credit due the girls.

ODE TO JOE DOUGHERTY Once on a time, a Phi Gam man, Was asked to a Kappa tea. And he was just as men always are, As pleased as he could be. And he was a man who had always bragged That nothing could make him quail ; And that a summons from the Dean Would not even turn him pale. In football he was simply great — He always took tickets at the gate — But he never thought that he would be At a Kappa Kappa Gamma tea, The only, only man. When the day arrived, he dressed him- self. In a way both fine and neat. And with a rose in his buttonhole, Tripped blithely down R street. Now, all you Uni men beware ! If you ever get a bid. To a Kappa tea, be sure and see If any other did. Do you think that you could face the fate Into which our hero ran. And be among some forty girls. The onlv. only man? [QJP Qo.VN -- ' —420— I m Tfg " 1919 Coi fcaskei- £9] " KING ROLLIN THE FIRST " Listeners, this is not a fairy tale. This is the truth, s ' help me, Letty, about a feller right here in school who became so attached to the Alpha Phis that he felt the awful oppressiveness of being held down in the bunch when it was only just that he pay his dues and sit in the scandal sessions and have the privileges of full membership, so when it came time to outline the distribution of their Formal bids, why Ike was there with boots on, a pencil in his hand and a smile like a goldfish. Of course, I have never seen a goldfish smile, but the point is that Ike had a smile on his cognomen which was beautiful to behold, it was. Well, Ike took the situation in hand, so as to remove the worry from the girls ' hands, for he ' d been around considerable and seen a lot of life and was the very man to say what should be the course of action. Just as I have said many times before what I say here, I say as one man to another and I really would rather you keep it to yourself, because I told the party who knew about it and told the person who told me, that I wouldn ' t let it out because it didn ' t affect me and I like Ike well enough to kind of be mum about it. But the funny thing about the whole deal was the fact that Ike had the situation so well in hand that Joe Dougherty thought that he was the sponsor, see? Well, popular-like Joe got a bid, you know, and he sends his acceptance to Ike. See the point? He thinks that Ike is the mainspring of Alpha Phi. And, confidentially, Ike did feel at the time that Alpha Phi owed him a little bit for handling the affair, because he really handled it. Brother, he did nothin ' else but that, and I wouldn ' t be surprised if when the May Queen is selected that Ike, as King of the Alpha Phis, should be selected as King of the May for, though this is all hearsay on my part, they think he would make an admirable king. And, knowing Ike as I do, I feel safe in saying that he would, and yet at the same time I say this in a spirit of great friendliness and with the sole purpose of putting Ike out before the public eye, for as manipulator of the affairs elite I should feel warranted in putting a medal about his neck and showing him to the world as " King Rollin the First, who was the best Alpha Phi who ever hung around Kath Newbranch, " but at the same time, let me ask that what I have said here will go no farther than it has, although some- body like your mother or father or some close friends would keep it in its proper place. A FRAT MAN ' S WAIL Well do I remember the room where I was born, Where the sun came peeping in so early in the morn.

Yeah, Mandy Heppner — Real nice lady, Mandy — rather set-like in her ideas, but pretty nice for all that. Now, she sort of figgers that beauty should come from within and not from without ; that is, she does not have much time for the brand of blushes that are applied with a brush from a can of Sherwin-William ' s red — which " covers the earth " and alsoa multitude of faces. Somehow, she has it doped out that the blushes of seven or eight of the sweet young things around here are of that variety. Funny, isn ' t it? Wonder why she doesn ' t test some of them with turpentine instead of soap and water. Maybe, nine or ten would respond to such treatment. And do you know, that there are one or two girls around here who pluck their eye-brows? S ' eah, that ' s what I said, they pluck ' em. You ' d never believe it, would you? Must be true, though, ' cause Mandy said so. She said they pluck ' em with Botany tweezers, if they can ' t find anything else, and that even some of the most bush-mannish eyebrows have diminished to finely penciled lines. Now, ain ' t that simply scandalous? An ' you know, Mandy isn ' t strong for this bareback stutf — no, I ' m not talking about circuses. I mean party dresses. She reckons that a party dress should fit close up under your chin, and that the sleeves should be long and awfully non-transparent. To tell you the truth, I don ' t quite get her idea — it seems to me that the war should have taught us the value of conservation, and where can you conserve in making a dress like that? She ' s all for these low- phys-ed heels, too. Now, just feature yourself trying to " shim- mie " in a pair of flat-heeled, silver — what would you call ' em? Not pumps, nor moccasins, either — in fact, I don ' t know what you would call the derned things — embellished tennis shoes, I guess ! I don ' t know where Mandy got all of these ideas. Must be caused by the approach of silver threads among the gold, and yet — don ' t tell anyone I told you this, for I wouldn ' t have it go back to her for worlds — I have heard from a very reliable source, that she puts her tresses up on kid-curlers every night ! ! ! —42a— ea -n i iats ♦i FAVORITE QUOTATIONS " On his own merits, modest men are dumb.

" BITS OF INTEREST At a meeting of the University Sen- ate, it was decided that all professors should get t heir spring hair cut at once or suffer a fine. Although it was urged that many students would be unable to recognize their professors, the motion was carried by a majority of one. Some of the minority claim that undue pressure was exercised by representa- tives of the Barbers ' Union, and in- sist that there is nothing in the action taken that will prevent them from hav- ing their wife cut their hair as usual. HOW COULD YOU, BENNY? Not long ago, Carolyn and Benny went down town in Carolyn ' s Ford. Benny went into a store, leaving Caro- lyn in the car, but when he came out she was gone. To his excited inquir- ies, a man standing nearby replied, " Gee! I guess carburetor.

Time — 5 o ' clock Monday afternoon. Action — Fair Greek maidens gathering for Pan-Hel struggle. Much confusion of many voices. Girlish giggles. Miss Heppner and Miss McPhee enter unnoticed. The conversation waxes louder and louder. Suddenly the door opens, and one Miss Florence I. McGahey, Registrar of the University of Nebraska, and loyal alumna of Pi Beta Phi, enters. All becomes silent, and the maidens rise in homage to the Great Lady. She Speaks — " Be seated, lowly ones! " Miss McPhee (chairman of Pan-Hellenic) — " Oh, Sovereign Queen, we, your humble and adoring subjects, are here this afternoon, to submit for your august approval, the names of those girls which certain sororities wish to pledge at the next pledge day. " Miss McGahey — " Read the names to me. I shall consider their eligibility with- out prejudice or partiality. " Miss McPhee reads a number of names which the Supreme One majestically ratifies or vetoes as she sees fit. A few feeble objections from Miss Hepp- ner were instantly over-ruled. At length, a certain name is read, to which Her Mightiness responds that the girl ' s grades are excellent, and adds, " By the way, what sorority did you say that she was to pledge? Miss McPhee — " Kappa Alpha Theta. " Miss McGahey — " Theta! Let me see her grades again. No, she cannot pledge. Her grade in chemistry is only 88. I consider that a flunking grade in such a subject. Miss McPhee — " I crave your pardon, most Noble One, I was mistaken. The girl is desirous of pledging none but the great and glorious Pi Beta Phi. " Miss McGahey — " Pi Phi! Woman, do not make another such fatal mistake! When one considers the difficulty of chemi stry, 88 is a grade of which to be proud. I, myself, shall be delighted to pin the colors on such an intelli- gent girl.

" So runs the old nursery rhyme, but times have changed since that was written, and now it reads, " John, John, the son of a gun. Stole a pig, but he hod to run! " At least, we heard he had to run pretty fast to catch that pig! Haven ' t you heard about it? Well, it was just like this. Once upon a time, John Fike and little " Babe " Crawford saw a pig ambling along Sixteenth street. No, we haven ' t the faintest idea how the pig happened to be strolling along Sixteenth street, but we ' re not at all surprised, since a lonely calf once mistook our campus for a pasture ! Anyway, the youths saw the pig, and straightway decided to capture it for the dear brothers. They approached the pig and spoke kind words to it, but it heeded them not, and increased its pace to a trot. Also John and " Babe. " The pig then started to run. Also John and " Babe. " Never was a pig so gifted with the power of locomotion as was that pig. It fairly burned up the earth. Also John and " Babe. " They sped across peoples ' lawns and porches, they bolted into startled pedestrians, and rushed madly in front of trolleys and cars. The fellows lost their breath but not the pig. On and on they sped ! Finally, they reached the vicinity of the State Farm, and there the poor pig swooned, and fell over in a piggish heap. The captors swooped down upon the wrecked pig. How should they get it home? John looked at " Babe, " and " Babe " looked at John. " Let ' s carry it, " says John. " All .right, " says " Babe. " However, the pig was heavy, and at the end of a block, they decided that it was not a bit of fun to carry it. " We should have a wheelbarrow, " says John. " That we should, " says " Babe. " And they got one. Now, we don ' t know exactly how they got that wheelbarrow, but we sort of have it figured out that they saw one in somebody ' s back yard, and that " Babe " went up to the house, and chatted with the lady therein, telling her he was taking subscriptions for " The Ladies ' Home Journal, " or something like that, while John spirited the wheelbarrow out of the back yard. We need not tell you about the trip back to the Phi Psi house. You can easily picture two weary youths pushing a wheelbarrow load of pig through the streets. After a time, the pig began to revive a bit, and to writhe about, necessitating the sacrifice of two gorgeous neckties, to be used as hand-cuffs, or perhaps we should say pigs ' -feet cuffs.

Be it understood that by " leading " we mean that they lead up to various things as, sluffing, etc. But our star writer called upon the Kappas and had an interview with one of the sister- hood. Our reporteir knocked at the door and had to wait, as usual. We had happened to have paid the reporter his monthly wages, and he was rattling the four bits in his pocket. A shutter softly clicked in the door and an eye looked cautiously forth. Our reporter, having keen ears, heard the following conversation : " Well, it isn ' t a Delt because he has some money in his pocket ; it isn ' t a Phi Delt because he don ' t smell like Blue Bell hair tonic, and he isn ' t a Phi Gam because he waited to knock before coming in. " Immediately the Sigma Chi password escaped his lips, and the voice within was heard to say, " It ' s pro- fane, therefore, a Sigma Chi; run upstairs, Marion, and then come down to welcome him. " In half an hour or so the door opened, and with a gladsome smile and a " hello " that would make Caruso ashamed of himself, she bade our reporter a hearty welcome. After a few commonplace words, our reporter told her his unusual mission there. He told her that it was always our custom to give their organization space in our book. The hostess agreed heartily and invited him to sit down on the floor. After a few minutes she began her story. " In the days that have gone by we have been called ice bergs and our house a refriger- ator and have been accused of being very exclusive, " began Marion. " But this year, we have tried to outlive that, and, do you know, we succeeded so well that we are now afraid that we have become of the proletariat class, that we have sunk to the depths of Democ- racy. We started all right this year to overcome our past reputation, but, you see, the trouble is that we went too far. It was on this basis that we pledged the beautiful little Risser girl. She was beautiful yet she was very democratic. " Here, our reporter almost exploded but managed to keep his poise while she continued. " And so we thought that with a combination of the two that she would be about the most popular girl in school. We positively knew that she would lead all the dances and that she would be one of the leading beauties and that the only thing that would keep her from being May Queen would be the fact that she is a freshman. But, of course, she went too far; she allowed Phi Delts to go with her and even went so far as to date with a Phi Gam. Of course, this got out on us and you see the result. " We instructed our Alumni to put a pledge ribbon on every girl that was coming to school, and then if we didn ' t like he.r, we could tell her it was a mistake. But, you know, the Thetas put three of them wise and now we have them on our hands. But we are going to try again next year and, with the aid of all the girls and with Sarah to help us and with my three cars. I think we will get the cream of class, don ' t you? " But I must get back to my main story. We are going back to our old policy. We passed it in Frat meeting just last night. We are going to pledge only class girls from now on. Of course, Buss Wehr and Peggy Mathews are a little peevish about it, but we told them that they ought to be able to stand it if Helen Overstreet can, so they have decided to subside somewhat, and anyway, they are merely freshmen. But, mind you, we are going to ascend to our pedestal again. It is the only safe plan. " Our reporter looked at his watch and begged leave, took his hat. bowed and slowly walked out. After rescuing his bicycle from some playful Phi Gams he hurried to the editorial parlors of the Cornhusker and wrote the story. We are forced to say that the censor on our annual forbids us to mention any names of persons or organizations. This takes some of the snap out of the story, but we have made it over and believe it still retains a little material to " Keep to Yourself.

FIRST VESPER MEETING The " N " Club held the first of a series of ' esper meetings on the top of U Hall, last night. Paul Dobson gave an enlightened speech on " How to Be and Act Beautiful ; " Lum Doyle talked on " Why I Am So Popu- lar; " Art Yort spoke on and for " The Ladies, " and Cable Jackson pro- nounced the benediction.

A new cook every month, is Pro- fessor Hood ' s new slogan. OH! THOSE MASCULINE SKIRTS! Once upon a time, our friend. Merlin Springer, who. as you know, was just about the gobbiesi gob that ever ate chow in the S. N. T.C. mess, decided to step out to Antelope Park with a lady fair. They stepped, lady fair being all a-flutter at the idea of being with such a handsome sailor. Really, Merlin in a middy was a sight no feminine eye could ever gaze upon and forget ! And that cunning little white hat ! Too bad, he could not wear it while dancing, for it did look so bewitching cocked over his left eye. Well, as I said, they danced, but, strange to say, the look of joy soon faded from lady fair ' s face. No, it could not have been because of Merlin ' s dancing, ' cause, you know, that Springer boy surely can dance. In about five minutes, lady fair beat a hasty retreat to the dressing room. Again they danced. Again lady fair looked unhappy, and hastily departed, leav- ing Merlin standing m the center of the floor in amazement. And again they danced, and soon lady fair looked pained. She attempted to de- part hence, but Merlin clutched her by the arm and inquired as to the meaning of her mad flights. She blushed. The longer they stood there, the more she blushed. " Why-er-er, " she stammered, and then sud- denly looking at Merlin ' s feet, she ex- claimed in joyful tones, " Why, Merlin, it ' s just those funny trousers flapping around mv ankles " ! -429- e Tii Qig ENGBERG AND McIVOR Engberg and Mclvor.

The campus felt a thrill. The public never knew the facts, Of how the two men fought; It thought that things were smooth as grease, But that ' s just what they thought. The scrap went on for many weeks. And things from bad to worse. Until the war department heard Conditions were adverse. They promptly sent a telegram To th ' little Irish cap, And he packed up and left the post Without the farewell slap. But things have settled down again. And Engberg is the chief.

All of the school ' s bud- ding young aviators celebrated the day and fooled each other by digging their uniforms out of the moth-balls. The Governor was there to go up in the air with the kids, but rumor has It that he developed a pair of cold pedal extremities after having listened to some of the wild tales of Brooks Harding. It was announced that membership in the club included $10,000 worth of life insurance and an empty stomach every time you take a trip. The club motto was announced as " Heaven, or Your Money Back. " The meeting was closed with the song: " Oh; for the Wings of a Dove. " MINUTES OF THE STUDENT PUBLICATION BOARD The meeting was called to order by Professor Alexander.

JJJy i -430— vQ I i " i 919 ROY AL AFFAIR INTER-FRATERNITY SPOOFING CONTEST ENDS IN RIOT Final Contest Ends in Scramble Before a large audience of Spoofers and Spoofees, Arthur Yort, of the Phi Delts, won the Inter-fraternity Spoof- ing Contest and will be the Champion Greek Spoof er for the year. The final round, between Yort and Haley of the Delta Tau house, was a gruelling af- fair. Yort, having been the victor of so many Inter-fraternity Spoofer Con- tests at the Pi Phi house, had Haley somewhat handicapped. These champions had defeated all comers in the preliminary contests and each showed that he felt the grave responsibility resting on his shoul- ders. The betting was 5 to 4 on Haley, and as a result the Pi Phis got all of the Kappa ' s finery and valu- ables. Yort ' s fiance backed him heav- ily and now has more clothes than any girl in school or in the Pi Phis. In the final round the entire local chapter of the Pi Phis was used as Spoofees and then the Delta Zetas were resorted too. Haley, in the midst of great excitement, slapped Yort on the wrist, and broke his crys- tal. But Yort suffered equally when he told his only joke twice to one girl. After the liberal education re- ceived at this meeting, it is expected that sorority porches and cozy cor- ners will do a rushing business. I am the Awgwan. I am the comic monthly on the University. I repre- sent all scandal, crack jokes and can compare with any comic throughout the country. But, at the same time, I have a fallacy. I am tardy in my appearance. I am so tardy that my promise of appearance has become a matter of public laughter. They say that I shall be out next week, but when next week comes, I am not out. Then I must surely be out the next week. But the next week, the printer who composes me has relatives at his .home and I must wait. When I fi- nally do make my appearance, I am so late that I am almost pvmctual for my next month ' s debut. The Awgwan longs for punctuality, and who am I to ask it ? I am the Awgwan.

My education depends on this job, because if I don ' t get it I won ' t have the money to fuss the women, and if I can ' t fuss, there ' s no use being here. This job means $450 to me.

Oh, say, if Mar- garet doesn ' t stop going to so many formals with Walter, Sarah Margaret Heiter will be getting jealous. That is a choice bit of recent gossip.

Yet speak it I must, for the story is true, The judgment for which I shall leave here with you. There was music, the sliding of dancing feet. In a low-brow joint on a dark side street; Where the hashers and tough mugs from all over town Meet and shimmie each night till the moon goes down. Well, I stopped in to lamp at this Bevo throng, Where there ' s dancing and soft drinks and plenty of song; When I stood still, astounded, surprised to the core. As I gazed at a couple a-ways down the floor. Says I to myself, it ' s my eyes that are bad. For I knew well ' twas not any liquor I ' d had; So I looked again; friends, you may not believe me, But ' twas Slater, the last man I ' d reck- oned to see. And the smile that he peddled was quite to the taste, To the blond thing he gripped by the hand and the waist ; As they shimmied their own way with never a care, Little knowing that I, little Albert, was there. To write more, my pen balks at even a word, In fact, it ' s enough that you ' ve already heard ; But of all things that happen, I ' ll lay up a bet, And I ' ll wager that this is the hottest one yet. ' V; THE LAW BANQUET Although the Lincoln Hotel ' s sup- ply of tobacco was exhausted early in the evening, the Law banquet was a howling success. Although the neigh- bors turned in three riot calls, the management succeeded in keeping the police away from the meeting until J. E. Miller was thrown over the transom. The " piece de resistance " li IUl»i ' Herbert Yenne entertaining the S. A. T. C. on Sunday night (French stuff) was horse meat, but this almost proved fatal when some one yelled " Whoa, " and Dr. Maxey almost choked to death. One fellow finally remembered a story no one else had heard and was awarded a cement bicycle as a prize. Many new dents were made in things general, and the waiters said it was the most complete holocaust since the late lamented Cornhusker banquet. A collection plate for tips was passed around, but every fellow, as he tossed in his own little dime, took out the one put in by his neighbor, so the tipping was far from being one of the real events of the evening. The rest of the evening was spent in kidding the rest of the university and telling us Laws how good we were. Rodman and Parry arrived late; it had taken them four days to explain to Dean Engberg the jokes pulled in the Law skit, Univer- sity Night, and they haven ' t complete- ly got caught up with things as yet. Three of the men attended 8 o ' clock classes the next morning. —437— jtM W. i ■ " ' ■ ' • ■■ » ' ' »k.4Bfc«»fl!iik —- £1,4 |1l ' ff(rlC( 4k«?tr .. » ?

We wonder if any of the other chapters could suggest something fitting for our purpose which they couldn ' t copy so easy. At our last weeklv meet- ing, we adopted the following motto: PHI DELTS SHALL ALWAYS LEAD.— Phi Delta Theta Scroll, February, 1919. " Our chapter takes pleasure in announcing that we have more automobiles than any other fraternity in school. We have the prettiest house. Our men are the best dancers.

THE SIGMA NU QUARTERLY Xebraska Chafter Dear Brothers : It is with a great feeling of personal pride in Sigma Nu that prompts me to write and inform the brethren that this year is smiling upon the best chapter that Sigma Nu has ever had in Nebraska for years and years. With but very little material from which to pick, we decided at one of our meetings, at which all present were brethren, that we would give the boys from the corn regions a chance to hold their heads among the aris- tocratic, with us as their guides. Since we have taken them into our amongst, they have become able Sigma Nus, and almost every night they change their collars and ties and park themselves over in the parlors of the Kappas, Thetas or Delta Gammas. Brethren, we are taking the country out of the boys and making them citified to the extent that, since becoming one of us, they have thrown their boots away and are now wearing tan shoes and a handkerchief in the outside top coat pocket. And a red tie. I shall close with greetings and with a brotherly hope that the other chapters over the country have had as marked a year as we have had here. I have mare to write for the next quarterly, but for the present I remain. Yours in the bonds. Jack Landai.e. -439— Cd kor M " I DON ' T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING, BUT— " . Like a girl told me yesterday: " Now, don ' t say anything about it to anyone, please, but sometime when you get a chance ask Marj. Temple to tell you about the good times that she and ' Stew ' Hadley had out in Estes Park. " Of course, the matter was safe in my hands, because L wouldn ' t think of letting little confidential thinks like that out. Why, not for the world, be- cause I might have lots of little personal things that have helped me to smile when I wanted to bite my nails, that I would lots rather just myself knew about it. Lots rather. ' _ And then you know Frances Aldrich. Well, I don ' t want this to get out publicly, but I saw her wearing a Phi Delt pin around here the other day,. and as far as I know, the Phi Delts have not pledged her, although they have a few rushees and quite a large number of prospects, but as far as Lm con- cerned, even if I should know, I wouldn ' t think of telling anybody about it because I ' m just naturally a hard feller to get to talk. But the funny thing was that a girl right here in this school asked me the other day if I thought it proper if she should take a tramp through the Robbers ' Cave. Of course, it was none of my business, so I told her to go right ahead, but it seemed funny to me that a girl in the university should wan to hang around with some common tramp. Not that I care in a way, because the girl is no special friend of mine and personally, so far as I know, the fel- low might have been all right, but it was the idea of it and besides the fact that there is always capable young men like Billie Bryans and others that she could just as well have taken along, and it would have looked a little better, that ' s all. But it will never get any farther than me because I like to knovy these little things and then keep ' em right with me — you know, just feel that you are the only one who knows about it. " We are very very good And we are also clever, That ' s the reason that we stand so high. So if you are a regular man And just about the best ever You can be a Delta Chi.

Never iron without using one of our chairs on which to rest the ironing board. We just painted said chairs for fun, and enjoy seeing the paint knocked off. 4. If you don ' t see what you came to borrow, ask for it. We strive to please! Please do not take our very last hairpin. Our Le Trefle toilet water cost $2.75 (aren ' t we the sports?), and we beg of you to please leave the bottles. By way of helping you, we would announce that Helen ' s fancy hairpin is in the upper chififonier drawer, and that Esther ' s fur coat hangs on the left side of the closet. Under no condition, return what you borrow for at least a week — it is one of our favorite indoor sports to guess who has this or that of our possessions. When you find that any of the clothes you borrow need cleaning, please notify us, and we will see that they receive immediate attention. 5. If you happen to be in any of our classes, don ' t buy any books. Use ours. We have them " Bought and Paid Far. " Please do not return them as " Damaged Goods. " 6. If the freshmen do not care for our manner of house-keeping, tell our friends — preferably at the table when there is company — but don ' t bother us with your troubles. 7. Why use your own towel when we have plenty of the them? This same question applies to soap and hair-hrushes. 8. If the freshmen happen to be busy or tired, we will gladly do any little odd jobs for them, such as answering the telephone or doorbell. We are never busy, and never get tired ! 9. If we are asleep when you enter, don ' t let it bother you. We enjoy all of the noise possible when we are trying to sleep, especially on Sunday mornings. 10. Do not use our blue blotters — their only purpose is to camouflage the table. II. If you should chance to use our purple ink, please leave the bottle in an upright position and see if the cork will lit. 12. Use our waste basket. We will empty it. 13. Don ' t get rough with our ukelele. Since Esther sat on it, " she ain ' t what she used to be " — meaning the uke, not Esther. 14. In short, make our room your little Y. W. C. A.

To such an extent that what scandal remains I shall deal out the stuff till it waxes and wanes.

Masqtierading as Phi Psi Fraternity The city of Lincoln was greatly shocked yesterday when Chief Isadore Murphy of the United States Department of Justice discovered that a band of Bolsheviks of the most virulent type had been operating under the name of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. It had been noticed that various meml)ers of the Phi Psis have been going without shaves lately, and it was this clew that put the sleuths on their trail. Last evening, the detectives broke into their meeting just as the desperate band was swearing its oath of alle- giance over a copy of " Snappy Stories. " In the basement of the house there was found a large store of weapons, including three razors, a package of pins, four machine guns, a paper knife, two cartridges, a rusty sword and a large number of hat pins from the Alpha O house. The young men were exceedingly rough and stoutly announced their principles. They declared themselves to be in favor of public dance halls, rouge at any cost, publication of all examination papers, no flunks and a soft jol) for all of them. University authorities were greatly surprised, for they had always considered the Phi Psis the meekest little boys in school. Even the Bushnell Guilds were considered tougher than they. The Phi Psi house will probably be confiscated by the university and converted into a cat hos pital for the Pre-Medic College. —455— i m m M.J Ti5 i919 FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF THE 1919 CORNHUSKER Published to fill space, give us a clear conscience and show up some of our solicitors.

Do you wish to become an educator, a scientist, an agricultural expert? Do you intend to pre- pare yourself for life ' s keen competition by thorough spe- cial training in ANY line?

Poor printing is, after all, the most costly. This new era in the art of printing shows notable triumphs in the rewards won by conscientious ef- fort, while the careless product is daily losing.
