The Past EOR uiuuimhercJ years Nebraska l.iy on the bed ot an immense sea. Then, thmugh ai es m ealculable, this sea-bottom rose and sank, accumulating the slow deposits of sea, lakes, and rivers. The rocks thus formed, covered with glacial gravel, the wind-blown loess, and finally the black alluvium of the rivers, became the physical Nebraska we know. The land for a long time teemed with animals of many species, far more varied than those of today. Finally, man appeared. We find grave-mounds and extensive flint-mines, evidences of an energetic though primitive race. Perhaps they were cousins of the mound-builders; we do not know. Nor do we know whence they came, or what became of them. More knowledge of these first Nebras- kans must come from careful study of the remains that are frequently being found. Here there is a gap in the record; then we find the aborigine displaced by the Indian. The largest tribe in this region was the Pawnee, which had attained a fairly settled life in the Loup, Platte, and Republican valleys. The Sioux family was represented by the Otoes, Omahas, and Poncas, and by the much wilder Brule and Ogalala bands farther west. A third group, the Chcyennes and Arapa- hoes, were Algonquins who had wandered far from their native lands in New York and New England. What white man first set foot upon Nebraska territory? The question has been warmly argued and still is undecided. The honor is often accorded to Coronado, but it is quite possible that his expedition of If 41 did not penetrate so far north. For two hundred years after him there was little knowledge of the Nebraska region, save from the memoirs of " explorers " who out-fabled Baron Munchausen. The first travelers who un- doubtedly visited the region were two French- men, the Mallet brothers, who led a party across It in 17. 9. Politically, Nebraska was a part of New France until 1762, when it was ceded to Spain. It was ceded back to France in 1800, and finally, in 18 ' 4, was brought under the American flag. From that year until 1 82 1 , it was first under military government and then attached success- ively to the territories of Indiana, Louisiana, an 1 Missouri. The first American explorers, Lewis and Clark, passed up the Missouri River in 1804, held councils with the Indians, and noted the character of the land. The most prominent Nebraskan of that early time was Manuel Lisa, a fur-trader. His post. Ft. Lisa, was established about ten miles above the site of Omaha in 1810 or 1812. During the War of 1812, Lisa ' s influence over the Nebraska Indians was sufficient to keep them loyal to the United States. An- other fur-post later developed into Bellevue, which is thus the oldest town in Nebraska. The first army post on the western plains, Fort Atkinson, was established in September, 1819. From 1821 to 18. 4, Nebraska was an unorganized wilderness. The main interest of the time was in the cut-throat competition of rival fur companies. This lawless period was terminated by the incorporation of the territory into the new " Indian Country, " from which white men were to be excluded. For twenty years settlement was debarred, but in the spring of 1854 the famous Kansas-Nebraska bill opened the gates, and settlers flcxided the Territory of Nebraska. Towns instantly dotted the east- ern border, and the rival villages of Omahi and Bellevue, with Florence, Plattsmouth, and Nebraska City close behind, began to clamor for the territorial capital. Omaha out-generaled her neighbors and for years thereafter the favorite legiskitive sport of the territory was the attempt, never successful, to remove the capital from Omaha. The year 1856 was one of speculative insanity. Embryo town-sites elbowed each other on the map, and " wild-cat banks, " with no equipment except beautifully lithographed notes, sprang up in every village. There was $750 in bank capital for every person in this territory on the edge of civiliza- tion. When the bubble broke, in 1857, poverty seemed more bitter than ever.

In 1859 the principal topic of conversa- tion, besides Pawnee thievery, was secession; for (he South Platte region, exasperated by Omaha ' s tenacious hold on the capital, attempted to join Kansas. Kansas refused, however, and Nebraska remained intact. Until 1858, almost all the residents of the territory were old-fashioned Democrats. In that year the Republicans organised and elected Samuel Daily to Congress. J. Sterling Morton •md Dr. George Miller were among the pn)mm ent Democrats of the time. From time to time there were sporadic move- ments to form a state constitution and secure admission to the Union. Such proposals were rejected in 1860 and 1864. In 1866 a third proposition for a state constitution, with Republr cans for and Democrats against, earned by a nar- row margin. It happened in this election that the party strengths in the legislature were very close and the outcome hinged upon the election in Cass county. A democratic majority in Rock Bluff precinct was thrown out on the ground that the election board members had locked the ballot box while they ate dinner. As a result Cass sent Republicans to the legislature, which in this way became Republican and elected Republicans as United States senators. The state constitution was approved by Congress on condition that it should not be construed so as to prevent negroes from voting; and, on March 1, 1867, Nebraska became the thirty-seventh state. The young state immediately reopened the venerable capital dispute by appointing a commis- sion, which selected a new site in a salt basin at least forty miles from the Missouri. The aggrieved representatives of Omaha sought to discredit the new capital by fixing on it the name of Lincoln. The first state capitol building was built under difficulties, for no railroad reached Lincoln until 1872. A con- stitutional convention, called in 1871, spent months formulating a new constitution which the people rejected; a second convention, in 1875, was more successful. The most exciting event of 1871 was the impeachment and conviction of Governor Butler on the charge of misuse of $16,000 of the state ' s funds. The tremendous increase of population from 1867 to 1880 was materially stimulated by the State Board of Immigration which in countless pamphlets expatiated on the resources and the future of Nebraska. The decade was also distinguished by the growth and political power of the Grange and other farmers ' organ i::ations. In 1876 the remnants of the Pawnee, Ponca, and the Otoe Indians were removed from their ancient lands to Oklahom. , leaving the Omahas and a few smaller tribes in Ncbrask.i. The political history of the state ran quite smcxithly with the increase in population and prosperity, until 1890. That year was one of crop failures and there was a tre- mendous defection of farmers from the old parties. The Farmers ' Alliance, with 50.000 members, entered politics and secured majorities in the legislature and in the Con- gressional delegation. Then the panic of ' 93 burst iipon Nebraska, bringing with it a depression that lasted until 1900. In the election of 1896 the state became the cynosure of the nation ' s eyes, as the residence of William Jennings Bryan and the center of free-silver agitation in that hot campaign. Political and economic upheavals kept the Republican party out of power until 1900. For the Entrance to Morton Mansion.

The principal feature of the state ' s political histor ' since 1900 is the number of reforms it has adopted. Railroad res ulation was tried several times, notably in 190 . Other measures were the direct primary, the bank ijuaranty law, the initiative and referendum, reform in legislative procedure, workmen ' s compensation, " blue sky " anti-speculation laws, and, in 1916, state prohibition. Any sketch of such a state as Nebraska must necessiirily place heavy emphasis on its basic occupa- tion, agriculture. It is interesting for citizens of such a fertile state to note that for as long as thirty years it was considered a desert. Major Long, who led an expedition across Nebraska in 1H20, re- ported that outside the streams the land presented " an aspect of irreclaimable sterility. " Despite the Major ' s unfavorable observations, the first agriculture by white men in Nebraska was probably carried on that same year, at Fort Atkinson. The first real settlers evidently had little faith ;in the soil or believed themselves mere transients, for they attempted ver ' little farming. These first settlers were all squatters, and had no legal title to their land. They protected themselves, however, by forming claim clubs which registered claims and properly entertained " claim-iumpers. " After the complete failure of speculation, men turned to the more dependable pursuits of the farm. Corn was the only staple crop until 1860, when wheat became a rival. Yields of 70 to 100 bushels of corn per acre were recorded in 1S60. Yet of 28,S41 residents of the territory that the census listed that year, only 5,982 were farmers, and many of those only nominally. The first farming was done along the Missouri river, but settlers soon began streaming westward along the streams. There were farmers along the Platte as far as Fort Kearney by 18 8. This rapid settlement was accelerated by the absence of forests to be cleared, the uniform fertility ol the land, the great numbers of immigrants ready to come, the building of railroads, and by the homestead law, which went into effect January 1, 1863. At a few minutes after midnight on that day, Daniel Freeman, of Gage county, filed on the first homestead in the United States. It was a day of log cabins and sod houses. Comforts were exceptional. Many farmers wore skin clothing and ate corn bread and " rye hominy " because they had nothing else. Even with homestead, pre-emption, and timber-claim opportunities, hard times were more common than good. The pioneers felt keenly their dis- tance from supplies and physicians; as well as the visitations of the two frontier scourges, prairie fires and grasshoppers. The " hoppers " were a recurrent menace. Their first formal visit to the territory occurred in ' 56 and ' 57. Then, gathering confidence they returned in ' 65 and ' 66 and again in ' 7. ' and " 76. Farmers became accustomed to seeing clouds of grasshoppers literally swallow their fields. The climax came in ' 74 when Nebraska was almost swept clean, and destitution was so terrible that state aid, federal aid, and popular sub- scription were unable to relieve it all. It was during the grasshopper years that farmers ' organizations first acquired considerable prestige and influence. In the next decade a great wave of immigration carried agricultural settlement into western Nebraska. Hot warfare ensued between farmers and cattle men, who were the first inhabitants, and who were finally driven from their ranges. By the end of that decade, the ' 80 ' s, pioneer Nebraska had gone the way of the pioneer, dead to all but memory. They had been hard times but merry ones, and, justly, the first settlers made the largest profits from the land. In the drought years of " 90 to ' 9J, the farmers, having no crops to harvest, turned to politics with the result already mentioned. But politics do not raise crops. The lesson of those years, supplemented by the work of the College of Agriculture, induced farmers to diversify their crops. Alfalfa, winter wheat, and sugar beets gained favor, as did dairy farming. The buying and feeding of livestock for the yards developed into a profitable business. With the extension of agriculture into western Nebraska irrigation and dry farming became valuable if not indispensable methods. This extension was also aided by the Kinkaid homestead law which permitted a homesteader to file on a whole section, and by the reclamation act of 1906 which furnished state aid for a dam and canals in the North Platte valley. In recent years two most promising movements have got under way—the farmers " co-operative unions by which the farmer s secure the advantage of collective marketing, and the appointment of county agricultural agents. Page 7 Old Indian Schoollu Pawnee Countv i ■ xumjm.lr.ilrl ' The development of industry in Nebraska has paralleled rather closely that of agriculture. The census of 1860, which was incomplete, listed 107 " estahlishments, " of which forty-eight were lumber mills. Evidently there was no thought of conserving what little timber the countr ' possessed. For some years the young territory was obsessed with two golden dreams, coal and salt. The hope of pay- ing coal mines died fairly soon but there was a persistent belief that the salt beds near Lincoln were an inexhaustible source of wealth. They had been worked sporadically since the beginning of settle- ment. Numerous companies were formed to realize this wealth, and equally numerous were the peti- tions for state aid but with small result. In 1869 and 1886 borings proved that there was not enough salt present to permit of competition with the eastern sources of supply, and so the project was reluct- antly abandonetl On the other hand, the state acquired valuable industries when the shops of the Union Pacific, Burlington, and other railroads were Itx-ated. In 1S74 Omaha had the Union Pacific shops, flour mills, smelters, factories for farm implements, bricks, and linseed oil, and was already a wholesale center. Yet the State Board of Immigration deplored the lack of industry and called the attention of manufacturers to the advantages of proximity to the farm. In 1884 a group of Omaha business men founded the union stock yards, the beginning of the greatest single industry ' in Nebraska. Omaha became the great- est distributing point for " feeder " cattle in the world. In 1900 the value of packing products was S71, 018,399, and Nebraska took third place in meat-packing from New York. The census reports of 1902 list the chief industries of the state as meat-packing, flouring, printing, railroad shop work, the creamery business, and leather work. One of the first laws passed by the legislature of the Territory of Nebraska was an act establishing free public schtwls and prescribing their personnel and administration. At first school advantages were largely nominal, as may be inferred by the fact that in 18 9, of 4,767 children only 1,300 attended school at all, and that seven counties reported no schools whatever. Most of the district school houses were of sod, built by the labor of the patrons. Such an edifice was often school, church, meeting-house, and auditorium. But those schools were centers of learning, for, by 1890, Nebraska had reduced its illiteracy to . .11 pjer cent of its population, and stood at the forefront of the states in literacy. In time the state could boast of a number of authors, widely known, who wrote on the most varied subjects: Dr. George L. Miller, J. Sterling Morton, Dr. Charles E. Bessey, A. L. Bixby, W. J. Bryan, H. W. Caldwell, F. E. Clements, Roscoe Pound, Louise Pound, and Hartley B. Alexander, to mention a few. In more recent years such writers as Willa Gather, Dorothy Canfieid Fisher, and John G. Neihardt have made prominent a literature that seems worthy of Nebraska. When America ' s entr ' into the World War came suddenly on Nebraska, v. ' ar activity began im- mediately. Three regiments of the National Guard were called out. A special session of the legislature convened, passed an act prohibiting foreign language instruction in the public schools, and established a State Council of Defense. This council engaged in numerous activities, and, like its national counter- part, used numbers of " four-minute speakers " to keep the public in touch with its activities. The state food administration regu- lated the sale of food and en- couraged city dwellers to plant gardens or work on farms. In the Liberty loans, Nebras- ka greatly oversubscribed her quota of $240,000,000, and she bought more war savings stamps per capita than any other state. Nebraska sent 47,801 soldiers to war, and, as she considers it, supplied them with their gen- eral. Base Hospital Unit 49, consisting of four hundred Ne- braska doctors and nurses, had the best record of saving life of any American hospital in Europe. And foremost and most solemn of all, one thousand Nebraskans died upon the fields of France. State Capitol. Dismantied in 1925 Page 8 I 1 r » 1 I IT- II. The Present QEBRASKA, m January, 1919, was a changed Nebraska, one that had knuwn bereavement and sacriticc. For two years the state had been workint; tirelessly for the nation, had given men and money, had sent grain and meat. And a Nebraskan by residence and schooling, John J. Pershmg, was the commander-in-chiet of the American Expeditionary Forces. Nebraska was glaJ to give, so men and grain were sent from clean agricultural fields to a land where the sky was smoke- clouded and the fields were bloody with the horrors of war. During these two years, Nebraska thought of nothing but war, and lived for nothing but war. Then, at the end of it, the fighting men returned, and " Do your bit to help win the war " became a discarded slogan. But m a country whose duty it is to aid her broken neighbors, Nebraska still had a share of the work to do. Starving nations had to be fed and Nebraska ' s agricultural resources could produce a large part of the necessar ' suppl Slowly, the state has recuperated and today industry is mi longer at a standstill. Farm production is increasing; unrest has almost disappeared. Other states boast of greater wealth, they have silver dollars instead ot copper pennies, they have valuable mines or factories, but Nebraska has agricultural land and grazing plains. Nebraska is an overalled, blue-shirted state — a working state — but it has the ruddy brownness of health. One hundred and twenty-five thousand farms, covering an area of forty-two million acres, are included in the fifty-five million acres of the state. Corn and wheat are the principal grains raised in the region. Corn is grown on about one-half of the cultivated area with a total production of one hundred and eighty-four million bushels last year. In 192?, Nebraska, ranking third as a wheat pro- ducing state, brought sixty million bushels to the markets of the world. Besides these grains, alfalfa is raised extensively and nearly every farm has a small plot of rye, oats, barley, and buckwheat. In the western part of the state where the rainfall is light there are two thousand four hundred miles of irrigation canals. Here potatoes and sugar beets are raised. At present, about twelve million Tlie I ' laltt Riit-r from Blujfi South of fremoiit Page 9 . Omalia i ;vlme KEARNEY MIDWAY CITY " );733™ " " FRISCO 1733 " " BOSTON ' ' bushels ot potatoes and one hundred .md twenty-seven milhon pounds of sugar are produced yearly. Closely related to the cultivation of the soil is the livestock industry. Every good farm has its herd of cattle. Some are kept for dairy purposes, some are raised for meat, some are petted animals which our proud breeder exhibits at county fairs as pedigreed stock. Swine are being raised to such an extent that Nebraska ranks second in the industry with two million head of hogs in 192. . Sheep are becoming more numerous and last year ' s report stated that there were about three hundred thousand scattered over the farms. It is in the western part of the state, however, that livestock raising becomes an industry-. The dry plains are especially adapted to supporting great numbers of cattle and a thou- sand head are often found on one ranch. Recent reports state that the annual shipment of beef cattle from the ranches to the packing houses and livestock markets averages about two million three hundred and seventy-five thousand head. This brings a need for transportation. There are seven rail- ways operating in Nebraska with six thousand seven hundred forty-two miles of track to carry this burden of traffic. Omaha, the leading city of Nebraska, is the blue- ribbon dairy produce market of the world. It ranks second as a livestock market and third as a meat curing and packing center with an annual expenditure of five million dollars in the packing houses alone. Nebraska has not become distinguished in other indus- tries. There are no mines, and the potash industry which flourished during the war has been shut down because of high cost of production. There are about four thousand factories in the state, the largest of which are the packing houses. Besides these there are flour mills, creameries, sugar refineries, candy factories, and bakeries. Clay beds also furnish material for the brickyards and for the tile factory in Lincoln. Then, there are factories turning out a variety of commodities. For instance, shoe strings and spark plugs are manufactured at Omaha, index tags are make at Exeter, and Kearney is the home of the dandelion rake. The cities are small, and numerous towns are scattered through the cultivated fields. The highways are being improved by state and county appropriations so that the automobile is the com- mon torm of .small scale transportation. The laborers of Nebraska arc well treated. They are not consumptive city dwellers, or " pale men who go forth from gray huts with dinner buckets to the depths of dark mines. " There is no menacing " scx)ty mantle " hovering above the heads of the people.

While It IS true that th e state affords no small p.irt of the world ' s food supply, it makes a con- tribution to the professional and education.il world as well as to industry ' and agriculture. Today, Nebraska has noted representatives engaged in law, medicine, education, the arts — in all fields of professional and educational enterprise. In 18 4 The Jiehrask a ?iews was first published in Nebraska City.- During the seventy years that h.ive passed since this first newspaper appeared many important papers have com-e into being. At present, nearly every town with a population of a thousand or more has its own publication, and some of these smaller papers are noted for their maintenance of the highest journalistic stand- ards. In Omaha and Lincoln, there are several large daily papers and some of the finest editorial writers in the countrv. Before the world war the Nebraska State Medical Asso- ciation had a thousand mem- bers, but since, the membership has ■expanded to thirteen hun- dred. About nineteen hundred Great Western Suj; ' " ' Beet Factory physicians are licensed to practice in the state. As a result of the activity of the American Medical Association, medical schools and hospitals have set higher standards for achievement. In Nebraska the hospitals are classified according to their equipment and the kind of service for which they are equipped, and fifteen have been rated " Class A. " Constant elfort is being made to enlarge this class. The state maintains four institutions for medical and surgical care of the ptxir. At Lincoln, Norfolk, and Hastings there are hospitals for the insane. The total capacity of the three is about four thousand. The Orthopedic hospital at Lincoln accommodates a hundred crippled children. Since the time of the first Indian schools, Nebraska has made steady educational progress until, at present, but 1.4 per cent of the population is illiterate. Sixty-two per cent of the children of school age attend school daily, and an average of forty-three dollars is expended annually on each child. There are five hundred eighty elementary and secondary schools in the state. Scene on William F.

The Protestant denomina- tions are represented in the educational life of the state by eleven colleges and many secondary and elementary schcx)ls; the Catholics maintain tour large institutions, aside from elementary and secondary schools. Nebraska has four universi- ties, Nebraska Wesleyan, a Meth xlist University at University Place; Creighton, a Catholic Uni- versity at Omaha: the University of Omaha, and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. The last named is the state ' s greatest institution of learn- ing, with a st udent body of si.xty-five hundred, and a faculty of three hundred fifty. From this intellect- ual center come many of the men who enrich the name and state of Nebraska. The past few years has witnessed extensive legal reform. A constitutional convention in 1920 rewrote the constitution of the state in order to make it less cumbersome. Legislative efforts have been directed to repealing useless laws and enacting only necessary ones, to raise efficiency and lower the expense to the taxpayer. There has been no great growth in Nebraska along the line of the arts, although many Nebras- ka writers, artists and musicians are coming to fame. Interest in the arts is fostered by numer- ous organizations. In Omaha there is the Society of Fine Arts, and in Lincoln, The Nebraska Art Association. Both of these societies have annual exhibitions at which noteworthy paintings from all over the country are displayed. The state is producing not only painters who have been recognized by American and European art gal- leries, but artists following other lines — commer- cial artists, interior decorators and cartoonists. Court House Ruc South of Bridgeport Music lovers are constantly attempting to secure a higher standing for music in Nebraska. In Omaha and Lincoln there are artists courses which bring great artists before the public. The Matinee HI Musicale in Lincoln is one of the oldest and largest musical organizations; it has been in existence for more than thirty years. In Omaha there is a symphony orchestra. The State Music Teachers " Association is also playing a great part in the musical development of the state. What has been accomplished up to the present time in the way of art is indicative of what the future may bring. The building of a new state in a country which was well-known to the Ponca, Pawnee, C " )toe, and Sioux Indian but strange to the white man was not an easy task. The early settlers toiled a half century to make Nebraska a full- fledged commonwealth. But the pioneers, :n fighting hardships, developed a spirit of resolu- tion and courage which is a lasting heritage of true Nebraskans.

And behold! — a lonely expanse of wind-swept plain and softly tinted hill! And silver mists gather over the scene, and clear away to reveal ragged tepees on the once desolate plain. Threads of smoke rise from feeble fires, and fade into a hazy sky, pierced by the Beams of Dawning Knowledge. The curtain falls. It rises with a breath of wildly urging martial music, and enter the adven- turous tradesmen of an older civilization. Now, all is confusion. The stage is filled with rough-clad traders, bartering with half-bewildered, half-insouciant Red men. The turmoil dies, and a sweet peace breathes over the plains. The scene is a voiceless appeal to the strong souls who can dream of the state as it may become, and labor to make it a reality. Prophetic forms and mists move ever before the eyes of the Dreamer, and he sees the Land of the Future. To him, the plains are teeming with events, and crowded with greatness. And he bravely remains and faces the silent emptiness of the prairies, so that he may bring his vision to life. He builds for himself a rude sod shelter. On wintry nights his lamp sends paths of diamond radiance over drifted snows that circle his miniature kingdom to the honzon. And the deep-set stars gleam down and carve out the unadorned loneliness of the scene in bold relief. Then follow summer scenes of barrel fields and straggling flock and toiling pioneers. But Ceres smiles kindly upon the fields. And the reluctant plains release their treasures, and golden fields of grain usurp the place of bar- barian grasses. Orchards flower, and splash their perfumed color upon the scene. Herds wander over the once forbidding hills. And the prairies which had known only savage tribes or slaving settlers, are efflorescent with the product of man ' s Ideals and Labor. Shaded lawns and gardens surround the pioneer ' s home. And presently the decrepit little hut has vanished. It has given way ) o its vigorous heir — a stately home, so much a stranger to its predecessor. Wagon trails widen and form highways which lead the rural life to the infant cities. Now, church spires stamped against the sky call to travelers to behold about them a new civilization. And other massive buildings pro- claim the growing cities, and, lo — where once July winds scorched unhalted, and wild drifts of winter played free havoc, tall buildings, drawn up thinly, shoulder each other. The wraiths and mists of Dreams have rolled back over the stage, and gathered themselves into Page 13 ■ ■tllltlflltll I I t I f V r I 1 I [ 1 1 I 1 I T I 1 I I I I I I I m I 1 »i n 1 1 I m 1 1 1 1 H A Majestic Portrayal of the Spirit of the Plaii s — ' H.ehrask.a ' s ' H.ew State Capitol pulsing monuments to man s advance. Another trumpet call, — and from chaos emerges a well-or- dered government. And the destinies of a state once ruled only by winds of chance, are moulded by wise and judicial legislation. The Drama continues, and there come yet greater scenes. For the Spirit of Progress rules. The voice of the Future speaks, and the Mists of men ' s visions gather again, and fantastic fig- ures resolve to form yet grander Images. The mighty sweep of prairie and rolling hill impress themselves upon the heart of the native architect. And the visions of sublime architecture crystalize and live in great temples and monuments to progress. Stately halls and cathedrals lend dignity to the expanding cities. The first sod hut be- comes but a dim memor ' , in this new reign of Beauty. And the iridescence of sunset and dawn breathe their message, and find their reflection upon the canvas of native artists. The call of open prairies, and the untamed music of living things re-echoes and fl ows out upon the composer ' s score. And lands which knew neither pen nor book, yield of their history and romances to the song of native bards. The call of the unknown and unexplored is answered by the rising of greater fountains of learn- ing. And every hamlet boasts of its superior wells of knowledge, where the youth of the state may learn of the wisdom of all time. Enchanting, shaded road-ways and parts un- wind and lead to beauteous parks and pleasure spots. The villages of the state are bound to- gether by these highways, and become more closely related units of a harmonious state. Then come splendid scenes of harvest festivals on golden autumn days, with recognition to the brave pioneers through whose labors their Dreams have been made to live. And the youth of the state, living within the reach of things inspiring, in time lends his shoulder to the Wheel of Progress. His power and knowledge guide his own state, and touch the mightier- pjhases of his nation ' s history. The curtain does not fall again.

The Beginning 1869-1888 " W - ' HE CornhHsl{er ot 192 is the Cuni nu er of service; so in presenting a history of the University l J ot Nebraska, the place filled by the school in the organization of the state should not be for- gotten. The University was established when Nebraska was admitted to the Union and it has continued to grow, just as its foster parent grew, in popularity and in p -)wer. When Congress authorized the formation of a state government in 1864, Nebraska was granted seventy-two sections of land as an endowment fund for a university. Three years later the legislature appointed a commission to pick a spot, suitable for a campus in the new city of Lincoln. On February 15, 1869, an act approving the establishment of a state university was passed by the legislature. This act authorized a College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, an Industrial College, a College of Law, a College of Medicine, and a College of Fine Arts, the government of which was vested in a Board of Regents. The cornerstone of University Hall was laid Thursday, September 2 J, 1869, and the University was ready for students two years later. The new building was indeed a stranger in a strange land. It was set in the middle of a prairie; sunflowers and plum bushes grew up under the very eaves. The sidewalks leading to the doors were only dirt paths; there were but few trees to shade the barren architecture of this new institution of learning. Chancellor A. R. Benton directed the destiny of the University of Nebraska during the first five years of its life. He was careful and conservative — held closely to the old conceptions of education. The three members of the faculty, on the other hand, were already beginning to show the influence of the foreign mind upon educational ideals. During the second year of Dr. Benton ' s administration the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, with Dean S. R. Thompson at the head, was opened at the farm, " one and one-half miles northeast of Lincoln. The achievements of this college were meager at first. Most of the students registered in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. The courses oifered were divided into three classes, scientific, classical, and Latin-scientific. All students were required to register for one of these courses and there were no electives u ntil 1880. The primary purpose of the founders was to establish a school which would provide a liberal education for the youth of the state. During the first years of its life the University of Nebras- ka was the seeker and not the sought. There were few students who could present full entrance requirements, so, for several years, the " prep, " or Latin school, had the larger enrollment. In 187. J. Stuart Dales and William H. Snell re- ceived the fisrt degrees granted by the University of Nebraska for the completion of a college course. University Hall v fas the only building on the campus until 1886. To the student of 192 ' who rushes madly from Bessey Hall to the Law building and back to Social Science Hall, having all ot his classes in one building would seem noth- ing short of ideal. University Hall contained the language and literature recitation rooms, the library, the science laboratory, and for a time the boys " dormitory was smuggled away under the eaves. Classrooms were heated, at first, with stoves and many were the impoverished boys who carried bucket after bucket of coal for the sake of a few pennies a day. A Shad;, i x.i . unh uj the Admimstrauon Bmldiny Page 15 The library was of little importance during the early years. It was first located in University Hall 202 and was available only a few hours a day. It contained, in 1S81, only two thousand eighty-one volumes and seven hundred pamphlets. The students recited in the morning; there were no afternoon classes. Hours for study were specified; the curriculum was a mechanical routine of reciuition and study. Under the new state constitution of 1875, the Board of Regents was reduced from twelve to six members to be elected by the people for a six-year term, with no reimbursement. In 1876 Edmund B. Fairiield was elected chancellor. He was somewhat more aggressive than Dr. Benton, but he was too conservative in his policy of education. The military department was organized in the same year under the direction of S. R. Dudley. The College of Agriculture was reorganized in 1877 and was called the Industrial College. Courses in agriculture, practical science, engineering, and mechanic arts were offered. Chancellor Fairfield retired in 1882 and Prof. H. E. Hitchcock, one of the faculty members, was acting chancellor until 1884, when Dr. I. J. Manatt was placed in the official chair. Chancellor Manatt was able and scholarly, and the University improved under his direction in spite of the fact that there was a growing unrest among faculty and students. He was the first chancellor to appreciate the advantage of co-ordinating the public schools of the state with the University and the first to take definite steps in that direction. During his administration the first chemistry building, now known as Pharmacy Hall, Vw-as built. At the same time an Agricultural Experiment Station was established, and Grant Memorial and Nebraska Hall were erected. The Medical College was opened in 1885, but after five years of struggle it was closed because of state criticism and lack of funds. Graduate work was begun in 1882 when two young women decided to continue their work in history, but definite courses were not established until 1888. IH On the retirement of Chancellor Manatt on January 1, 1889, Dr. Charles E. Bessey, whose name is of lasting significance in the history of the University of Nebraska, became acting chancellor. At this point the school entered upon a new period of development that was to bring it great popularity in the West. It is impossible to pass this early period in the history of the University without a glimpse of the student life of that day. The institution v.as a pioneer scho il in a country not far from the frontier, and the students were pioneer students on the frontier of a new educational experiment. One would suppose that they were serious, studious individuals with no dreams except classical dreams, with little inclination for things outside the classrtxjm. But it takes more than hardship, poverty, and loneliness to dampen the ardor of a youthful spirit. The first society on the campus, and one which still exists, was the Palladian Literary Society, organized in 1871. In 187? a number of students seceded from Palladian and formed the Adelphian Literary Society. In order to " get the best of " the Palladians, it admitted women to membership. It was reorganized in 1876 into what is today known as Union Literary Society. The first year book of the University of Nebraska contains an interesting account of campus activities in 1884. In spite of poverty, the students seemed to find time to participate in social affairs sponsored by the college. Besides the traditional literanes, all kinds of societies were prominent. There were three secret fraternities, one sorority, a Y. M. C. A., and a Y. W. C. A. There was a University of Nebraska bicycle club, a University orchestra, a cadet band, a chapel choir, and a German society. Two organizations which existed in 1884, and are now unknown, were the W. G. I. A., which trans- lated means, " We go it alone — No young men need apply, " and the anti-hugging association. Imagine the ceremonial occasion of Arbor Day and Charter Day! Imagine the glee manifested at a Thanki- giving picnic! The first student publication of the University was the Hesperian Student, which was begun about 1871 and had its office in the attic of University Hall. Its contents varied from student items to original serial stories. The Button Buster, sponsored by the Palladian Society, was published in the early eighties, and the first annual, the Sombrero, appeared in 1884. Copies of these publications, which have been preserved, show in those early years of establishment how the University progressed, step by step, with the state, until, at the beginning of 1889, it entered upon a new period of more rapid growth. f: i IL A Seat of Learning— 1888-1905 =:; ' HE period from 18,ScS to 190 has often been called the golden age of the University of Nebraska. J It was a period of departmental growth and campus extension. Up to that time the faculty conssted of ten or fifteen members and all work was carried on in the four buildings. University Hall, then called Mam Building; ( " hemistry Laboratory, now Pharmacy Hall; the Armory, or Grant Memorial Hall; and part of the present Library building. In 1888 the cornerstone of Nebraska Hall was laid. At the same time the left wing of Grant Memorial Hall was built. The campus included only the ground bounded by " R, " " T, " Tenth, and Twelfth streets. At that time it was a barren, unprotected prairie. In the blizzard of 1888 a man nearly lost his life in crossing the campus. At this time cows and horses were picketed on the campus at night. A little later, when plants and shrubs were placed on the grounds, an iron fence was built to keep the townspeople off of the campus. In the morning when people who lived north of the campus came by on their way down town, they found the north gates locked. At about 1 1 o ' clock these were opened, but the south gates were closed to keep off the returning citizens. And about this time the electrical engineering and manual training laboratories were constructed. Instruction in electrical subjects was offered in the department of physics under Dr. Dewitt Brace. The first two students who specialized in this work were graduated in 1891. In September of that year the electrical engineering department was established under the head of Prof. R. B. Owens, who now holds the position of secretary of the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia. In the next year the department of manual training was formed. This later became the department of mechanical engineering. As long as the campus had only five buildings, the museum was located in Nebraska Hall. No interest seems to have been taken in it until in the early nineties. Chancellor Canfield, in a public address in 1891, described the museum as consisting of only the mounted skeletons of the domestic cow and horse. But with the selection of Professor Barbour as the curator, the museum began to grow. Hon. Chas. H. Morrill v -as the first patron of the Nebraska State Museum, lending financial support in 1892 and in subsequent years. The museum was overloaded by 1893. In 1888 was laid the foundation of the present College of Law. Twelve young men who were reading law in the offices of Lincoln lawyers organized a class under Prof. C. A. Robbins, who is still on the faculty of the college. As an outgrowth of this class. Prof. W. H. Smith organized the Central Law College in 1889. By the spring of 1891 the University faculty, realizing the need for such a school, recommended the establishment of a University a. v college. In that year the College of Law began active operation in the botany room of Nebraska Hall. At this time the law library consisted of a few dozen volumes in the corner of the main library. Chancellor Canfield often traveled in different parts of the state speaking to create interest in the state university. Through his activity, the attendance was increased to nearly a thousand students. Among those who were in school at that time were Samuel Avery, Amanda Heppner, Louise Pound, Clara Conklin, Willa Gather, Dorothy Canfield, John J. Pershing, and others of state and national fame. Important changes were also made in the organization of the military department. In 1891 Lieu- tenant J. J. Pershing succeeded Lieutenant Griffiths as commandant. In the national competitive drill of 1892, held in Omaha, the Cadet Battalion under the leadership of Pershing carried off the maiden prize. In 1893 he organized the Varsity Rifles. The organization is now called the Pershing Rifles. In 1894 there was a girls ' cadet corps, directed by the head of the military department. As the University devekiped and grew, University publications appeared. The Sombrero, the predecessor of the Cornhus}{er, had up to t% this time been neglected, — only one volume had ' f f " - ' " V. ITieRv - - - ' £ ' " published. The second volume was pub- lished in 1892, and from that time it was pub- lished by the junior class every two years. In the literary section of the volume for 1895 is a story written by Willa Gather and Dorothy Can- field. The seniors also published a volume each year, call the Senior Tear Book,, in which all of their activities were described at length. Until 1893 there was only one other student , ,, „ publication, the Hesperian. In that year a small Agricultural Hall Page 17 i S ' Vs monthly publication called The ' Xlebrasl an entered the field The nickname of The Rag was given to ' f this publication by " Rag " Riley, who was one of the editors in 189 . There was great rivalry and antagonism between these two papers. In 1899 the two papers combined into a four-column, eight- page publication called The J lt ' bras}{ci-Hfspcridn. The name was later changed to The J lehra.sl{an. It became a daily in 1901 but it was not until 190S that it, was purchased by the Board of Regents and placed under faculty-student control. In 1900 the Scarlet and Cream was first issued. It was a weekly but was not published many years. The Cornhus er Countryman, and the TSjebrasf a Blue Print were first published in 1901 and 1902 respectively. With the increase in the attendance, new departments and schixils were added to the University. The Graduate Sch(X)l was organized by Chancellor McLane in 189i and Dean Edgren was placed at its head. Its gn wth has been very rapid. Among the first graduates were Roscoe Pound, Samuel Avery, T. E. Clement and H. N. Allen. The College of Agriculture was definitely organized at about this time. For the first few years the course consisted of twelve weeks work from December to April, which later v as extended to three terms of twelve weeks each. The department of domestic science was established in 1898 with Miss Rosa Bouton as director. The work was done in the Mechanic Arts building. The progress of the department of physical training and the achievements in the field of both men ' s and women ' s athletics are equally interesting. The Hesjperian of 1890 contains glorious accounts of the first football games played by the University team. The first track meet was held at Crete in 1891. The Scarlet and Cream, or the Old Gold as it was then, met Doane, Cotner, and Wesleyan and won nine out of ten places. Walter Booth, formerly of Princeton, came to Nebraska as coach in 1891. For two years Nebraska held the Valley title in football. At that early period bicycling was at its height as a sport, and the Wheel Club was formed. Gradually other sports were introduccvl. Even a hiking club was formed. In 1897 Nebraska joined the State Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Athletics for the women of the University had their beginning in the early nineties. The only outdoor sport was field hockey. Track came a short time after. Basketball was, however, the most popular sport for women. In 1900 the Board of Regents ruled that every man and woman in the University must have a physical examination and everyone, unless physically unfit, must take two years of physical education. In 1897 the freshman-sophomore field day was first held. Charter Day programs were begun a short time later. It was the class of 1898 which originated the Ivy Day tradition. In 1901 it became " Senior Day " and the exercises were expanded to include an Ivy Day oration. The year 1900 opened a new era in intercollegiate debating. In the early nineties debating clubs were formed by the literary societies to perpetuate this activity. The Maxwell Club was also formed to stimulate the interest of the students in intercollegiate debate, as was the University Debating Asso- ciation, in 1892. Prof. M. M. Fogg came to the University in 1901 and took charge of this activity. He reorganized the entire system, and the Nebraska team met and defeated other college teams and won three interstate debates in 1902. The College of Medicine was not established by the Board of Regents until 1903, although pre- medic work had been given at Nebraska as early as 1893. Dr. Henry B. Ward was the first dean of the college. The first two years of the medical course were given at the University in Lincoln and the last two years at the college in Omaha. A few years later a five-year course was instituted. Scholarship had always been recognized in the University and many honorary scholastic societies were formed — Phi Beta Kappa, Arts and Sciences honorary scholastic society, in 189i, and Sigma Xi, honorary scientific body, in 1897. Alpha Zeta, honorary agricultural fraternity, was established in 1904. The Vikings, honorary society for the junior men, was organized in the spring of 1902. The Innocents, honorary society for senior men, was organized April 24, 1903. The first meeting of this society was in the belfry of historic University Hall. In the Ivy Day program of 1903 the Innocents " tapped " the thirteen junior men who were to succeed them. Two years later Black Masque, senior women ' s honorary society, was organized. Later the society obtained a charter from the national organization of Mortarboard. In 190 they combined their ceremonies with those of the Innocents on Ivy Day and the custom has continued. The seventeen years from 1888 to 1905 saw five new buildings erected near the original five " on a barren prairie. " The enrollment increased from less than five hundred to approximately three thou- sand students. With this expansion, five new schools were organized and a number of new depart- ments. This period was in truth a " golden age " of department and campus expansion and is noted as well for the number of now famous names which were then connected with the University — in the student body and on the faculty. Scholars of national and international fame taught, and in some cases are still te;iching, at Nebraska. Students of equal fame as lawyers, writers, soldiers, and men of affairs were members of the classes of the years 1888-1905. PaKO 18 111. The Transition— 1905-1914 - HE period 190 -1914 was one of steady, though not always spectaeular growth. These nine I ) years witnessed academic improvement, a change of chancellors, expansion in number of stu- dents and buildings, a considerably greater prominence in athletics, and gradual changes in modes of student life. The academic structure of the University was extended in 19()S by the creation of the Teachers " College and a College of Pharmacy. In 1909, the old Industrial College was resolved into its own elements, which became the Colleges of Engineering and Agriculture. The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts was renamed the College of Arts and Sciences. The first two years of the College of Medicine course were moved to Omaha in 1911, where the advanced courses had been located for some years. A School of Commerce appeared in I9!,i. The University also raised its scholastic standards during the period. It cannot be justly said that the students of twenty years ago were less scholarly than are their successors, but the entrance requirements had been rather loose, and students were admitted who had less than four years of high school training. In September, 1911, 24 points of high school credit were demanded for conditional admittance. The next year the requirements were raised to 28 points for conditional, and 30 for complete admission. On Januiry 1, lt 09, E. Benjamin Andrews resigned the chancellorship. His loss was regretted by both faculty and students, who had known him as a classical scholar and a gentleman. Samuel Avery, head professor of chemistry, tentatively succeeded him and on May 20 became chancellor. The elevation of standards noted above had an appreciable effect on registration. Total enroll ' ment had increased from 2,914 in 1905-06 to 4,624 in 1910-11; the next year it dropped to 3,657, but by 1913-14 it had again risen, this time to 4,133 students. The progress of University expansion and building during the period, though steady, was usually a few steps behind the increasing registra- tion. Administration Hall was finished in 1906, as was the first section of the great museum that was to have been built the same year. The Temple was completed in 1907 at a cost of $95,000, of which two-thirds was donated by John D. Rockefeller, and one-third was raised by the literary societies. In 1908 the Mechanical Engineering Building was finished, as were the Women ' s Building and the judging pavilion on the agricultural campus. The legislature of 1909 appropriated $20,000 to extend the campus of the College of Medicine, and in 1912-13 a suitable laboratory was built there. At about the same time the College of Law building was erected on the Lincoln city campus. At least $520,000 was spent for the construction of these major buildings. The culmination of much talk of University expansion and of a greater University came m 1914. The legislature was at least tolerant of the idea, and agreed to submit it to a referendum. Accordingly, House Roll 345, levying a tax of three-fourths of a mill on the grand assessment roll of the state was submitted to the people who were also to choose between expansion of the city campus and unifica- tion of the University (except the College of Medicine) at the agricultural campus. Several plans for future buildings were proposed for each alternative. In the fall of 1914, the bill, with the city campus retained, was approved. In the field of athletics only a few times, notably in the football season of 1902, had Nebraska won tame up until 1905. But in the nine years thereafter the University won six Missouri Valley football championships as well as national prominence in basketball, and moderate success in the minor sports. The first football championship came in 1905, the last year of " Bummy " Booth ' s coach- ing. In 1906, the new rules concerning the forward pass and the open game went into effect. Nebraska won her first championship under them in 1907 and the second in 1910. Finally, in 1911, the " imperial " years began. Ev -ald O. Stiehm, better known as " Jumbo, " became the first all-year coach, and the " Stiehm roller " stxin began to function. Football champion- ships rolled in annually: basket- ball fared as well, for Nebraska stood at the head of the con- ference in 1911 and 1912, and at the head of the northern divi- sion in 1913; and Nebraska en- joyed the almost-forgotten taste of victory over Minnesota. In those years the University be- came more widely known than ever before. , rrrrm f«« b IIIIBSIB Bill M p kitMiiJM n il J II I " , .-4 ' ™ The Hospital.

That of track was usually good, and especially so in the seasons of 1909, MO, and ' 14. Similarly, Nebraska won the intercollegiate cross-country meets, held in Chicago, for three consecutive years, beginning in 1906; but cross-country later was almost abandoned because of lack of interest. Baseball also died quietly from lack of support. Tennis and virestling interested numbers of students, who sometimes brought honor to the University. The student life of the University, at that time, may have been less extensive than today, but it was not less lively. SiKial life was already beginning to tend away from the campus. Fraternities and sororities, class " hops " and proms, and even clubs, had not quite the old intimate connection with the University. About 191. " " the dance question, " precipitated by the " tango " and " cactus, " was a vital topic of discussion. Some fields of student activity had excellent claims to the name. Among these was class politics, especially at the beginning of the period. Would-be class officers sometimes announced their candi- dacies as early as registration week. There followed a hot campaign, replete with tense meetinj;j, charges and counter-charges of graft and machine politics, and suspense. The situation was further complicated by the " paternal " tactics of the upper classes, for each class constituted itself unofficial guardian of those below. Particularly was this true of the sophomore organizations which yearly assumed active superintendence of freshman affairs. It passed judgment as to whether the freshman might meet or not and jR usually was present at these - meetings to assist and advise. |3l Nor was the advice always meekly accepted. On a few occasions the Chancellor was obliged to preside in order lo preserve decorum. The Aus- tralian ballot was at first un- known in class election, but stuffed ballot-boxes were hard- ly so. Class feeling was not con- fined to politics. The kidnap- ping of prominent personages just before class functions — meetings and " hops " — was highly enjoyed, and the strategy employed did credit to its users. Class spirit, moreover, was manifested in smaller affairs and individual encounters, which were often violent and seldom entirely harmless. Saner elements of the University began to demand some r efo m, and a single fight, with unnecessar ' roughness eliminated, was suggested. The name Olympics was the idea of Dean Bessey. The first successful Olympics was held in 1908, under the direction of Professor Condra, and thenceforth class spirit ran in calmer channels. At the beginning of this period the University was troubled with an over-supply of student publications. The " Rag " was indispensable, but there were three annuals: the Sombrero, or junior annual; the Senior class book, and the College of Law publication. The students who were asked to subscribe, and the merchants who were asked to advertise, agreed in deeming the field too well- covered. A combination was effected, and in May, 1907, the first volume of the Cornhns}{er appeared. There was no further addition to the roster of major publications until 1912-1. ' , when Awgwan first rippled the sea of laughter. Until 1908 Ivy Day was a senior class affair. In that year the Innocents opened it to all classes and in following years the program was augmented by the selection of a May Queen and the mask- ing of the Mortar Boards. University Night, with its convulsing " stunts " has been held once a year since 1911. The first Girls ' Cornhusker party was in 1913. The general University expansion already noted was accompanied by the formation of dozens of new student organizations. The old literary societies were still in the field, but the field had extended beyond them on every side. Students were drawn together by study in the same depart- ments, expectations of following the same careers, and by the bonds of common nationality, religion, or native place. Page 20 East Driveway. College of Agriculture Campus H IV. Rapid Expansion— 1914-1919 y K; ' HE University, in the period of 1914 1 19, was affected by three distinct influences. These C J were the norm.il current campus hfe, the expansion and extension program, and the sudden and brief activity of the war. In an academic way, the University was almost complete within these years. The Schcwl of Pharmacy was made a college in I ' . l ' ). A Graduate College of Educa- tion, in addition to the Teachers College, was maintained from 1914 to 1918. In the latter year a School of Dentistry was established, which in March, 1919, was made a college. In the same year the Schcxil of Commerce became the College o f Business Administration. This development was almost all in the technical and professional branches, and is representative of the tendency toward specialization. There was a very natural increase in registration, an increase which was checked only by the war. The total enrollment was 5,40 in 1916-17; the next year it fell to 4, ' ilO; but in 1918-19, despite the fact that the war did not end until November, registration was greater than ever — 5,617. The course of student life throughout most of the period was not tempestuous. The first All- University party, November 1 . 1914, drew a startlingly large attendance, and foreshadowed a long Ime of such affairs. The first Farmers " Fair, that of 1916, also was unexpectedly successful. In the spring of 1917 there was much talk of reform. The " single tax, " levied upon every student for the support of student activities, was proposed, but not adopted. The Student Council, instituted May 25, 1917, was the result of similar agitation. In 1916 was seen the last of the Cornhusker banquets, old style, imperil- ing life and limb. The next year a Varsity banquet was substituted, and in 1918 the old name was revived, hut minus the association of hurling missiles and rowdyism. Athletic success was varied in this period. The first two football teams were all-victorious, except for a tie with South Dakota in 1914, and with Rutherford and Chamber- lain won the University ' s fifth and sixth Missouri Valley championships. Nebraska was also basketball champion ;a 1915. But in 1916 Stiehm, the miracle coach, left. His successor, " Doc " E. J. Stewart, did not immediately perfect a victorious system. There were no championships, but there was plenty of Cornhusker spirit. " Doc " Stewart in- stituted the policy of playing larger institutions. In 1917, though all athletic teams were depleted by enlistment, Ne- braska was again football champion of the Valley. The season of 1918 was a veritable nightmare. The government assumed control of Valley sports, players were leaving con- stantly, and schedules were made and remade within a week. Basketball was more tranquil, hut neither team gained a championship. In 1914, at the beginning of the five years, the people of Nebraska had voted for University expansion, and the institution found it.self with its first definite expansion program. By 1916 the size of the campus had been trebled, from 11.9 acres to . ' 6. Before new buildings were begun. University Hall, which had again been pronounced unsafe, was braced with the celebrated " corduroy effect. " The following year, 1917, Bessey Hall was completed, a memorial to Dr. Charles E. Bessey, who died December 25, 1915. Building progressed rapidly thereafter, despite the war. Chemistry Hall also was finished in 1917, and the Teachers College building in 1919. Two buildings were erected on the agricultural campus, the Dairy Industry building in 1917, and Agricultural Engineering the next year. The long-awaited hospital at the College of Medicine was completed in 1918. Beside these Pliiiit Industry Building Pase 21 structures, the cost of which was $1,055,300, construction was begun on two more. Social Sciences " ty " Hall and a new laboratory at Omaha. Concurrent with physical expansion, and partly resulting from it, was University extension. The legislature approved plans for a great building program: in return, two duties were pointed out: thr.t of the University to serve the state as much as possible, and a mutual duty to become better acquainted. The extension department was already performing much of the first duty by such means as boys " and girls " clubs, demonstrations, and crop study. In pursuance of the second, an extension or University Week had been proposed, a chautauqua tour of the state by University organizations. This was tried in !91i. These two currents, then, of normal life and expansion, were flowing smoothly when in the spring of 1917 they were disrupted by the cross-flood of war. The building program was carried on with little delay, but campus life was revolutionired. Almost immediately large numbers of undergraduates volunteered, and more were drafted. From that time forward the ranks of faculty and students were being thinned constantly. Chancellor Avery became a Major in the Chemical Warfare Service, and Dean Hastings of the College of Law temporarily succeeded him. At least twelve faculty men were commissioned majors or captains, and several faculty women went overseas. Students withdrew daily to enlist or to work in factories or on farms. Most of the staff of Base Hospital 49 were from the University. The number of stars on the University service flag grew to 2,300, and by November 11, 1918, forty-four of them had turned to gold. The University went forth to war not only abroad but also on its own campus. The military department, in 1917, became a part of the Reserve Officers Training Corps. Even though military ' discipline was more stringent, the improvement in cadet spirit was noticeable, now that there was a definite goal. In the fall of 19 IS the organization of the Students " Army Training Corps was completed. The relation of the S. A. T. C. to the University was rather anomalous, but in principle it was a detach- ment of the United States Army using the University plant to train men of college grade. The Uni- versity was to furnish general instruction, for which it was paid by the government for the whole unit. Any male student of more than 18 years might enlist in this corps, and so become a bonafide United States soldier. His courses would be elective, except for drill and three hours of war aims. The enlistment was about 2,000, much greater than had been expected. In October, the unit was learning discipline and fighting influenza, and in November was beginning to find its stride when at one stroke the armistice removed its purpose and its impetus. The unit was finally mustered out in December. The unanimity with which the University turned to " ' winning the war " " is little short of amazing. Students were few, and faculty members fewer, who were not busy in this affair. A Patriotic League was formed, patriotic convocations were held, and always there were " drives. " " Liberty bonds, Belgion relief fund. Red Cross, Syrian relief, Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., and others followed each other in swift onslaught. The students " endurance, however, was noble: the " Red Triangle " " cam- paign was especially successful, the $15,00i) quota being oversub. ' ;cribcd by more than $10,000. The Nebraska Four-Minute Men, a division of the Commission of Public Information, attained, under the direction of Prof. M. M. Fogg, an efficiency among the highest in the country. The making of bandages occupied the time of many Nebraska co-eds. Most campus talk was of war. All this extra-normal life went on at the expense of the normal. Many activities, especially clubs, were virtually " suspended for the duration of the w.ir. " " The 1918 Cornhus}{er was a war manual in which classes and clubs were relegated to the back. There was as much khaki as white on Ivy Day. In the fall of 1918 especially, Olympics, mixers, banquets, almost all the campus traditions were tem- porarily abandoned. The University of Nebraska v.-as at war until November, and not until 1919 were the ways of peace fully resumed. rsRi- T-, ■ I 11 H I I 1 I f-TT- »m. V V. A Greater University— 1919-1925 — I " RIFT came in the clouds cast by the war, and the activities and festivities of the campus began 1 I to emerge vi. ' ith renewed hfe and added ;cst. May, 1919, was a signal month, for it marked ■ - — the end of growth from a single building of literature, science, and arts to a cluster of build- ings for ten colleges. Fifty-one years before, the chancellor and six professors comprised the faculty, while on this semi-centennial anniversary, the rostrum listed two hundred fifty men and women of professional standmsj alone. The first graduating class was composed of two men, in contrast to the approximate four hundred members of the class of ' 19. In thinking back over the milestones of the University ' s progress, the center of attention may well be focused upon the expansion which has taken place, because continued growth is character- istic of vitality ' . Social Science Hall was formally dedicated January 14, the Teachers College building on Januar ' 16, and Chemistry Hall in May. The architectural plan of the buildings of the city campus, although somewhat obscure, was showing itself in Bessey Hall, Chemistry Hall, Teachers College, and Social Sciences Hall. The development of a separate agricultural campus kept pace. The new agricultural buildings may be well compared with any similar structures in the world. The dream of the five corps of physicians and surgeons, who made up the faculty of the College of Medi- cine at Omaha, had become a reality. Here were two well-equipped laboratories, and a hospital to serve the indigent poor of every county in the state. Late in 1919 a small committee was entrusted with the duty of considering a memorial for the students who had served in the war. It was decided to erect a stadium, to be dedicated to all Nebras- kans who had responded to the country ' s call. This was a monument to high endeavor, a forum for the expression of community effort, spirit and activity. The expansion policy was carried forward through 1920, with an increased registration and addi- tions to the faculty. The beginning of a dormitory system under supervised control was made in this year. Student activities and student enterprises involving the expenditures of money were being brought under systematic management. The office of the Executive Dean now kept accurate accounts of the current records of students, where in the past the professor ' s grade-book had sufficed. The material gams in number of buildings and students was accompanied by greater emphasis upon strength- ening scholarship. In February, a special home, Ellen Smith Hall, was formally opened for women ' s activities. One of the red letter occasions which characterized the calendar for 1921-1922 was Nebraska ' s gridiron victory ' over Notre Dame. Also important was the election of the head coach of Columbia University, Fred T. Dawson, to a similar position at Nebraska. For the first time the freshmen cele- brated their winning of the Olympics by burning their green caps. In the midst of such a march of progress traditions dear to any college must pass to the realm of cherished memories. So it was that Jack Best — well-loved — skilled Huskcr trainer since the days of 1888, went to his rest. Drizzling rains and lowering skies which darkened April 26, 1923, could not keep away more than a thousand spectators who gathered at the site of the new stadium. They witnessed the breaking of the first s(iil with Chancellor Aver - follow- ing the plow. The University of Nebraska, under the direction of the Board of Regents, is entrusted not only with the higher instruc- tional work of Nebraska, but carries on much of the research, survey, and extension activities of state development.

UAvenir— 1925-On y -ZHE University of Nebraska today is a monument of the past and a prophecy for the future. J The facuhy and students are transient beings, but the body of them is continuous, for as soon as one professor leaves a chair vacant, another is chosen to take his place; as soon as a student lets the material doors of the institution close behind him, another student, standing on the doorstep, is ready to open them. Every year several thousand new students come; every year several hundred arc graduated and leave for all parts of the earth. Each June, sorrowful seniors look across the campus, green with i spring carpet of grass and with trees whose leaves are not yet old. The walls seem to croon to the graduates, in their loneliness, a song — " For fifty years we have seen summers come and go; we have been covered with the chill snow of winter; we have seen you, students, pass in and out of the doors during your youth; we have heard your laughter and listened to your farewells. Then, we have seen some of you return to us when you were old both in years and in wisdom. We have outlived all of you and we shall go on living until we crumble away into dust. " " Such IS the prophecy of University Hall, that old-fashioned first building, the grand-sire of the campus. Its walls may be cracked and braced by rods of iron and steel; the bricks may be crumbling; it may sway in the wind; the rooms may be drafty; the seats in the classrooms may be cut with the letters of many fraternities and the initials of many students, but the building is loved for what it signifies — the beginning of the University. The first building was erected because of a faith and an idea that the new state needed an in. ' titution of cultural learning; it was built for the farmers and frontiersmen who sought for their children the culture which the centuries had accumulated. Today the University of Nebraska is no longer an idea, but a reality. It is known from coast to coast, and its former students are in all parts of the globe. T(xlay there are nearly forty buildings on the city and agricultural college campu.ses, housing ten colleges. Materially it is still growing. People vitally interested in the welfare of the schcxi! are trying to secure a state appropriation for addi- tional building and improvements. If the state is to be a center of culture, it must have a University that is worthy and capable of intellectual leadership. It must carry out the conception which the founders of the liberal arts college had when they decreed that a cultural education was one of the first things to be sought, even on the barren prairies. The future University of Nebraska is more than an ideal, more than a vision. The future of the institution, is being outlined definitely. The city campus now occupies four city blocks, but the Uni- Pasc 24 , fY-rnrmxmrr rr ' :5 3 versity :one extends from Tenth street east tn Sixteenth and from R street north to the railroad tracks. One day this is to he a beautiful campus. The streets and campus w.dks will he shaded by rows of trees; all fraternities and sororities will he built about a square block m the zone and the campus will become the centralized unit of University life. Another building which is expected to contribute to the social life of the University is an auditor- ium, to be the civic center not only of the schixil, but of the city as well. Today, granite, like that used in the columns of the foyer at the capitol, is being sought, and the plans specify a structure just as distinctive in its own way as that symbolizing the state. The buildings housing each college will be grouped. Some departments will be enlarged. There will be a new building for the dental students, one for the College of Pharmacy, and probably the Museum and the Librar ' will some day attain quarters that are less stifling. The athletic field will be extended north and east. Such is the material dream of a future university, a dream of a beautiful campus with adequate provision for students. But there must be more than the material, there must be an ideal which will not be defined in dollars, in bricks, or physical equipment. No prophet on earth can tell how many students will be attending the University fifty or one hundred years hence. But if the future can be interpreted by the past, if the growth is as steady and convincing as it has been, then it is possible to prophecy great numbers. But growth of the student btxjy alone does not signify a great and powerful university. Before a school can he truly great, it must seek, just as any famous personality must seek, that ideal — progress — which alone can bring success. The University of Nebraska must grasp those higher conceptions which will make it a master among the universities of the nation. Culture, it should always pursue. It should have high scholarship standards and ideals, and it should inspire the students with the value of those ideals. It is true that " the mills of the gods grind slow " and such a prophecy as this may seem to be vague fancy. The conception of a master university may be a dream today, but tomorrow that living reality may come, and the University of Nebraska be sought and not seeking.

Wit i the new methods and modern devices of machinery, the operation and conduct of every business and every enterprise is upon an unusually scientific basis. In order to be prepared to embrace opportunities and to enter the field of industrial and professional activity, it is particularly necessary now for every man and woman to be fortified with an education that will especially fit them for the line of endeavor for which they are most adapted. In each line of endeavor also we must have leaders, not only leaders in the various active business and professional departments, but leaders in civil and public affairs. The State of l ebrasl a is particularly fortunate in having the splendid, well-equipped University at Lincoln in which to prepare the young ynen and ivomen of the state with an education which will fit them to carry on the mo.st successfully their life wor}{ and adapt them with the nowledge required for leadership in commercial undertakings and in the affairs of the State and the Klation. — Carl R.

It is second highest in percent- 1 J age of literacy among all the states in the union. It believes in the church and the school. Each is essential " to a high standard of citizenship and both are essential to an evenly developed and dependable state. The father and mother who provide their children with the blessings of a christian home life, surmounted, if possi- ble, with the advantages of a college education, need do nothing more. They may rest secure in filial devotion and they may feel reasonably safe that they have reared sons and daughters who will live morally, who will succeed materially, and who will strive to make good citizens of themselves. But after being graduated from an educational institution like the University of Nebraska, no alumnus should permit himself to forget the obligation he owes the state for the education he has received. He should retain such a sincere interest in his Alma Mater that her legitimate needs will never suffer through his indifference or lack of proper concern. He should not forget that it is the alumni who make the college. Its standing can be no higher than the standing of its graduates. If the graduates of a college lose all interest in its welfare after they receive their diplomas, then the college itself is sure to lead a precarious existence. It will lack spirit, tradition and stability — and more than likely it will generally lack funds. The University of Nebraska ranks second to none. Her graduates arc loyal, generous, high-minded and proud of her record. Some of them arc the sons and daughters of former graduates: some of them have sons and daughters now in the school. Let us all continue to uphold the institution that has meant so much to us so that it may mean even more to those who are to follow. _-— , Pace 3C The Chancellor of the University CHANCELLOR SAMUEL AVERY XT is always a pleasure to greet those students who are going forth to make a better Nebraska. The University has had a long and honorable part in building a great commonwealth. It is now well started on its second half century of service. The population of the state in the past fifty-six years has increased ten-fold, while our student body has increased about ninety times — nine times as rapidly as the population of the state. Can anyone say that this will not have a powerful effect on the development of the state? In the past half century our material resources have increased beyond our fondest expectations. But today the pioneer days are gone and Nebraska is on the eve of a great development of its intellectual and spiritual resources. Throughout these fifty-six years the chief mission of our University has been to serve Nebraska. Its thousands of graduates in the various communities and in the various professions are powerful influences in the life and in the development of the commonwealth. In more specific ways the University has always sought to promote the good of its citizens, as through the agricultural experimentation and exten- sion of the College of Agriculture, through the University hospital and dispensary of the College of Medicine, and through the many other branches of work which it supports. I hope students will not forget to continue this spirit of service to Nebraska and to remember that their first ambition should be in some measure to repay with service the cost of the education which y A , ■ l. y the state has given them. L lA O ' May success crown your every effort. ( Page 81 11 1 w ] I I II I 1 I r I im I I T.ii iiiifl l ■y:? Earl Cline Lincoln F. J. Taylor St. Paul Harry D. Landis Seward W. P.

" We are quick to recognise in each of our friends and associates positively identifying charac- teristics through which we are attracted to them or by reason of which we seek to avoid them, and even so our own Nebraska has a personality peculiarly her own, and she too has positively identifying characteristics that cannot be confused with those of any other student body. My thought is that we are all contributing, through each act of our lives, each utterance of our lips and each thought of our minds to Nebraska ' s personality, and by this token we will strive to do her honor and contribute to her glory in proportion as we love her, and I venture that the more we love her, the more generous we will be in our judgment of her, the more considerate of her problems, and the more sportsm;inlike in both victory and defeat. In common with all the human kind, we are quick to form opinions of others and may not be too generous in our estimate, especially of those that conquer us in a field wherein we have grown proud or arrogant; but both victory and defeat are " good medicine " and both properly interpreted will help to build for Nebraska a personality that will command the affectionate ' ard of all the world. Dean of Men , a -iy lfCzf. gNOTHER year has passed. It has been a year of profit ,ind pleasure. I hope, for most of us. a year spent in the development of hody. mind and soul. Have we, however, partaken to the fullest e.xtcnt of the good things the Llniversity has in store for us. and have we given in return that which from us is due? The athlete who listlessly goes through the motions of athletics achieves nothing. The hunter who shoots aimlessly seldom bags anything worth while. In like manner, the student who fails to keep a definite end in view, rarely derives from his opportunities more than a fraction of what is properly his due. In view of these facts every man should at the beginning nl his course set before himself a goal to be reached or an ideal to be attained. A man may never enter the business or profession he chose in his freshman year. He may. likewise, fall far short of the ideal, which at the outset he placed before himself. An earnest effort, however, to prepare himself for a definite purpose in life, or to wring the greatest profit from his investment of time and money carries with it its own reward in an enlarged vision and a greater ability to cope with the problems of life, whatever they might be. Incidentally, scholarship will take care of itself. But while profiting from the opportunities so freely given, it should not be forgotten that we owe the University a debt; a debt which we are in honor bound to discharge; but a debt of such nature that the more we pay the richer we become. Let us. then, do all we can for the glory of the school we love, and, in so doing, not only will the University prosper, but our own success in life will be assured. Dean of Women BPPROXIMATELY twenty-five hundred undergraduate and one hundred graduate women are registered in the Uni- versity this year. The office of the Dean of Women looks after their needs and assists them in their adjustment to the college environment and college demands. The training re- ceived in the intra and e.xtra curricular activities should prepare the student for proper college citizenship and for the larger and more effective citizenship in after-college life. The attitude to- ward opinions, traditions, and principles, of the college world may determine ones attitude towards life in the larger world. The scholastic, ethical, moral, and spiritual standards will, in a measure, be responsible for the nature of the precepts and of the character of the matured individual. The majority of the college women maintain fine standards and ideals, and are amen- able to further suggestions which will guide them towards a higher goal. The office stands ready at all times to render such service as the needs of the college women may require. Counsel and in- formation, dealing with the varied problems and perplexities ol women students, will be gladly given. No matter that is ol vital concern or interest will be deemed too trivial for considera- tion. In all of this work the Dean receives the efficient aid and loyal support of her assistants and the many student organiza- tions, especially of such larger groups as W. S. G. A.. Y. W C. A., W. A. A., and the Senior Advisory Board. There has been a steady and notable improvement in the desire to promote superior scholarship. In spite of the fact that the requirements have been made severer, the numbers of re- cipients of Phi Beta Kappa honors has been increased. With the enlarged enrollment, the high-minded and right-thinking leaders will need to stress constantly the importance of excellent grades, honestly obtained, and help to direct the ir more con- fused or misguided classmates towards the worth-while achieve- ments which represent the real meaning and purpose of Uni- versity life.

Ellen Smith Hall IS very dear to the heart of each girl who has worked or played within it. But even aside from that interest, there is a history surrounding it, which gives it a sort of glamour and unusual interest. Mr. Frank Sheldon, at that time a Lincoln broker, built it to be his home. This was in 1887. Shortly after that time his business interests called him to New York City where he resided until his recent death. In about 1890 the building was sold to L. C. Richards. It never changed hands again until taken over by the State in 1915. Even after Mr. Richards died, his daughter, Mrs. L. A. Ricketts, made her home there. In 1913, the legislature passed a hill to extend the city campus two blocks east, that is, over to Fourteenth street, thus including the present site of Teachers " College and this large residence which was to be the Women ' s Building. Two years later it was officially taken over by the .state, and was for a short time rented to Alpha Sigma Phi as their fraternity house. In 1920 the Advisory Council of the Alumnae Association became interested in the matter of a name for the building. Their request to have it called Ellen Smith Hall was presented to the Board of Regents in March, 1920, and accepted very shortly thereafter. The original plan ' of the house was brought from Italy by Mr. Sheldon. In appearance the build- ing differs from modern edifices in that it is not absolutely symmetrical. Approaching it from R Street, one notices the graceful curve of the turret at the right, the sharp gable of the roof at the left, and just between these, two dormer windows jutting out at an angle to the sloping roof. The porch is not large, but upon mounting the broad, worn stone steps, the massive carved doors bring an impression of spacious comfortable rooms within. Nor is that impression to be dispelled. The reception hall opens into the drawing room, a parlor and the court. Both the parlor and drawing room are large and inviting rooms, but the court attracts one involuntarily. The floor here is paved with mosaic tile fr om Italy and in a pattern at once simple and ornate. It has been worn by thousands of feet, but still it retains a peculiar lustre which is never seen in American tile. The woodwork in the court as in the rest of the building is beautifully carved. Now, Ellen Smith Hall houses the University Y. W. C. A. and the office of the Dean of Women, and provides for every woman of the University a home-like restful atmosphere in which to read or think or meet other women in a social way. In the court, facing the door from the hall, hangs a picture of Ellen Smith, for whom the build- ing was named, and whose spirit certainly must hover about every generation of University girls. She was the first woman member of the University faculty, coming here in 1877, and serving it faithfully until 1901. She was loved by all who knew her because of her strong personality and her conscientious performance of her tasks. ' Pase 31 {jT a L:itt r .

L Candy) C ; ' HE term " arts, " or " liberal arts, " as applied to certain studies, IS of Roman origin, and was used n some of the European schools at a very early date. At iirst there were only three of these studies, grammar, logic, rhetoric. These were called the " Tnvium. " Later, four more subjects, music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy, were added. These were known as the " Quadrivium. " Thus there were seven in all of these liberal studies. Then when the universities of the Middle Ages were established the term " Faculty of Arts " was used to denote the instruction in philosophy and science as distinguished from the faculties of law, medicine, and theology. In like manner, the discipline derived from the study of these liberal arts has come to be designated as a " Liberal Education " as distinguished from a professional education, or mere technical training. During the last century the development in all lines of scien- tific work, and the increase in scientific knowledge, have been both rapid and extensive. At the same time the social organization has become more complex, and human interests and needs have become more diversified. As a result of these sweeping changes, the number and contents of the liberal arts that are now admitted to the curriculum of this college have both been very much in- creased. The branches that are now considered as belonging to the liberal arts may be put into four rather distinct groups. The first group will include all of the natural and physical sciences. The field of study and in- vestigation in this gniup is the aggregate of material things, animate and inanimate, organic and m organic, of which man himself is an important part. This realm of material things, from the atom to the whole universe, is included in the purview of these sciences. The second group is the so-called social sciences. These deal with the origin, history, develop- ment, and functions of our various civil, legal, educational, and religious institutions, such as the state, the courts, the schools, and the church. The third group consists of philosophy and mathematics. These are sometimes called the abstract sciences. In this group the attention is fixed essentially on man himself, not as an animal, as in the first group, but as a rational, intelligent, sentient, spiritual being; not on man the creature, but on man the creator, the study of whom has been aptly called " the proper study mankind. " The last, but not the least, group is composed of all of the languages and their literatures, includ ing the mother tongue. The scope and importance of these studies is so well known that no comment is need. Thus we see that in the field of education a very large part of the realm ot human interests tails within the domain of the liberal arts. Pase 36 A. L.

In the first place, it must give adequate instruction to its students in the vast fund of knowledge which it has already accumulated in its wide and ever widening field. It must also, — and this is no less important — seek to ascertain new facts, and to discover and formulate new laws which obtain in each and every one of these liberal arts. In short, it must search out the truth wherever it may be found. In this way, an ever growing body of knowledge is made available for use, in the practical arts. In another respect, this college has a two-fold responsibility. There are always two distinct groups of students registered in these liberal arts courses. The number of students in each of these groups is appro.MiTiately the same. The first is composed of all those students who are matriculated in one of the professional or technical colleges, and hence are not considered as belonging to this college, but who nevertheless do a part of their work in the liberal arts, and the remainder in the college in which they are matriculated. In some cases, the number of hours that are required to be taken in the liberal arts is a large percentage of the total number of hours required for the professional degree. From the point of view of the instruction given to this group of students, this college should not be considered as an entirely independent college, but as a fundamental and necessary part of each of these colleges which it thus serves. Since it collaborates in the training of these students, this college should be given at least part credit for the services rendered to the state by the professional and technical colleges. If it were not for this plan of co-operation, it would be necessary for at least some of the professional colleges to maintain their own departments in the liberal arts. The other group consists of those students who matriculate in the College of Arts and Sciences. These take all, or nearly all, of their work in the liberal arts, and at the end of their course are granted the degree of Bachelor of Arts, or Bachelor of Science. The service which this college renders to the state through its work with and for its own students, can neither be measured nor adequately expressed. Its product is educated men and women, a price- less contribution to the state and society. These men and women are prepared to render service of the highest order wherever the disciplined mind, rather than the trained hand, is the essential qualification. They will be leaders in the intellectual and best social life in the community in which they live. They will eventually be called to positions of trust and responsibility in the schools, the church, the state, and commerce. In all places where it is character, rather than wealth, that counts, these men and women will serve their generation, often with no thought of reward. In fact, the most valuable asset the state possesses is its liberally educated men and women. For by virtue of what they are, rather than what they do, they become the architects of the si)cial order. Without them, civilization must languish. ■ " Without a vision the people perish. " But the final goal which this college holds before its students is not the achievement of the practical, but the realization of the ideal. Its chief purpose is not to make them skillful in the art of making a living, but to teach them how to live an abundant life; not to train the hand, but to open the under- standing, to quicken the conscience, to enlarge the vision, and to increase the appreciation of and reverence for the beautiful, the noble, the true. And finally, it seeks to cultivate all the finer qualities of both mind and heart to the end that its graduates may be fitted for complete fellowship in the asso- ciation of educated and cultured men and women. The diploma from the College of Arts and Sciences is the passport that admits the holder to membership in this noble company. What higher service could the state require? Life is more than raiment. c Morford Walker Rohwer Rosenquist Davis Beadle Linieinan Butts Johnson Thyseson Sturmer Walker Samson Schmidt Brenke Searson Anderson Pool Andersen Tullis Harris Hayes Botanical Seminar y HE Botanical Seminar was organized in the autumn ot 1886 by seven students who had V J hccn brought together by a common interest in field work in botany.

For many years the seminar has been known as the ' " Sem. Bot. " ' In the early years the " onginal seven " met in secret s ession for the reading of papers and for the discussion of things botanical. The first open meeting was held in 1891 when the first new member was taken in. The Seminar has published Parts of the Flora of ' N.ebras a and Reports of the Botanical Survey of J ebras}{a. From time to time it has brought lecturers of note to the University whose ad- dresses were printed. The membership is divided into five grades or ranks, each with a particular degree. These degrees are Socius, Honorarius, Ordinarius, Novitius, and Candidatus. Admission to the Degree of Candidatus, the first or lowest degree, is obtained only after the receipt of a summons from the Lord Warden and a submission to an examination before the Lord Warden in council. Pro- motions from Candidatus to Novitius and from Novitius to Ordinarius are made after additional examinations by the council. Admission to the degree of Honorarius and Socius are not preceded by examinations, but much higher prerequisites are required of the candidate for these degrees. At present the meetings of the Botanical Seminar are of two classes. A convocation is held whenever members of all grades sit together with the Lord Warden in the High Place. The Chapter of the Seminar consists of the Candidati, Novitii, and some Ordinarii, ruled over by the Vice-Warden under the direction of the Lord Warden. OFFICERS Keeper of Rolls Edc..

" Sigma Gamma Epsilon is a national professional fraternity, founded at the University of Kansas in April, 1915. The purpose of the fraternity is the social and scientific advancement of students in the three kindred sciences, geology, mining, and metallurgy. There are now six- teen active chapters located in universities and scientific sch«ils with recognized high standing in the United States. For membership in Delta chapter of Sigma Gamma Epsilon the student must be majoring in geology and have a high scholarship average. Delta chapter has a widely-scattered alumni group. Professional work along geological lines has taken Nebraska members to nearly every part of the globe. Particularly have they gone to the Latin countries in the western hemisphere, where there has been increased activity in oil and mineral production. Sigma Gamma Epsilon sponsors many student activities to increase interest in geology and mining. Seminar meetings, held every other Thursday, do much to instruct and entertain the student member who is interested in the application of science. The men meet at dinner and hear reports and speeches by members of the geology department and prominent men in this field. The fraternity also sponsors the activities of the geology department during Engineers " Week, when the department and the museum are opened to the public. OFFICERS First Semester Second Semester B.

The liKal chapter has been quite active in carrying on the work for which it was organized. The purpose of the society is to further interest in the biological sciences, and to encourage a free discus- sion of, and investigation into, these sciences. In the bi-monthly meetings of the chapter numerous papers have been presented by various members dealing with research problems in which they are interested. It is through meeting to hear and discuss such papers that the members gain a clearer conception of the magnitude of the sciences of botany and zoology. Membership in Phi Sigma is limited to those men and women who show outstanding ability in the study of some branch of biological science. Such men and women must also have completed at least two years of collegiate work, a considerable portion of which must have been in biological subjects. Election to membership is also based on scholarship, per- sonality, and faculty recommendation. It IS the aim of the society to encourage undergraduates interested in either of the two biological sciences, and to provide a means of recognizing any outstanding ability that a student may demonstrate in the study of such sciences. It makes membership in an honorary ' scientific society available to the undergraduate, and to those elected it gives encouragement and enthusiasm such as only association with others deeply interested in scientific work can give. Members of the faculty and graduate students are also included among those eligible to membership in the society. OFFICERS President John A. Cameron Vice-PresideTit Raymond H. S v, llo v Secretary-Treasurer C. W. LL. c;E BucK Page -13 Pre -Medics B III n Dr. Franklin D. Barker Pre-Medic Advisor S early as 189? the University of Nebraska listed twelve students in a group preparing for a course in medicine. Three years later a preparatory course was outlined so that a student, upon completing it, was ad- mitted to the third year of the leading medical schools. It was at this time that a society was organized by students taking the preparatory course to medicine for the purpose of encouraging the development of a medical school in the University at some future time. In May, 1902, the Omaha Medical College became the College of Medicine of the University of Nebraska. A six-year course was offered, the first four years, including the pre-medical and pre-clinical years, being given in Lincoln, and the last two years, clinical years, being given at Omaha. Upon the completion of the first four years a Bachelor ' s degree was granted and at the end of the last two years the student received his M. D. degree. In 1913, in order to secure better clinical facilities and to better organize the College of Medicine as a unit, it seemed desirable to move the pre-clinical courses to Omaha. This left but the pre-medical courses in Lincoln and marks the real beginning of the Pre-Medic work. Since 1893 the pre-medical section of the College of Arts and Sciences has grown from a small group of twelve to more than two hundred and fifty. In other years the first year class has always been much larger than the second year class, but this year the reverse is the case. This may be accounted for by the fact that students from other colleges are coming to recognize the advantage of a year of preparation at Nebraska before entrance into the College of Medicine at Omaha. Another change is that the number of young women taking the pre-medical course was nearly doubled in the last year. The leading medical colleges of the country have found it necessary to extend their influ- ence into the academic work in order that they may relieve the already crowded and over- burdened medical curriculum, at the same time insuring adequate preparation in the basic bio- logical and physical sciences. Thus the preparatory ' and medical courses are better correlated and the pre-medical course becomes fundamentally a part of the medical education. A number of pre-medics plan to become medical missionaries, following in the footsteps of those already in the foreign lands, saving life, aleviating pain and bringing comfort to all races of man. The pre-medics endeavor to create an atmosphere of good fellowship and to stress the high calling and great responsibility resting on every man and woman preparing for the medical pro- fession.

Barker chapter, named in honor of Dr. F. D. Barker, the pre-medic advisor, was installed at the University of Nebraska, May 20, 1922. The purpose of the fraternity is to promote high standards among the pre-medics and especially high scholarship. Election of members to Theta Nu takes place twice each year, once immediately after the close of the first semester and again just before the close of the second semester. Membership to the fraternit) is based on several standards, among which are scholar- ship, personality, leadership, and general ability. OFFCERS ?-resid.mt Wm. E. Hay V ct-¥y !, de-at R.

' M ' ■ Nu Meds Sheldon GAlRDNtR XN 191?, the first two years of medical work, making up the pre-clinical courses, were transferred to Omaha, leaving two years of academic work to be taken in Lincoln. It was at this time that the group of students taking this preparatory work became an entity, m a way marked off from the rest of the students in the College of Arts and Sciences, and became known as the Nu Meds. This pre-medic society has grown with the rest of the University. Membership in the Nu Meds is open to all students taking academic work preparatory to entering the College of Medicine in Omaha. The aim and purpose of the society is to better acquaint the students witn the real medical .itmosphere and to bring about a clo. er friendship among the pre-medics them- selves. Two years of work in the College of Arts and Sciences, with a total ot sixty-five hours, ar? required for entrance into the College of Medicine. These requirements follow the recommendf-. tions of the American Medical Association and include courses especially advantageous to the professional physician. The Nu Meds hold monthly banquets for which they secure as speakers medical men of prominence, visiting doctors, alumni faculty members of the College of Medicine and of the College of Arts and Sciences who arc particularly interested in the pre-medic courses. These meetings are intended to emphasize the imp irtance and seriousness of the medical vocation. Two events in the year ' s activities are of particular importance to the Nu Meds. Twice a year, at the monthly banquets, occurs the tapping of members of Theta Nu. Theta Nu is an honorary pre-medic fraternity, the members of which are selected on the basis of scholarship, leadership, personality, and participation in student activities. Paw 46 t 1 r 1 1 II i.L.LL The other event is Pre-Medic Day at Omaha, late in April, when a trip of inspection is made to the Omaha College of Medicine in the morning and the college is inspected under the guidance of medical students and major operations are witnessed. In the afterncwn various sorts of entertainment are provided, usually a ball game for the men and teas for the women. In the evening a smoker is held at the University Club, to bring together the students and faculty ot the College of Medicine and pre-medic students. Members of the faculty are the speakers and medical students assist in the entertainment with a musical and humorous program. Many stay for the rest of the week to attend theatre parties and dances given by the medical fraterni- ties. The pre-medics are, in this way, given an insight into the work which they are to follow for the coming four years. OFFICERS First Semester President John W.

Iota Sigma Pi was founded at the University of Nebraska in 1912 and united with a similar group at the University of Washington in 1914. The national organization originated from the union of these two chapters. There are now sixteen chapters in the leading universities. The last chapter was installed at the University of Kansas by the Nebraska chapter in November, 1924. Many of the former members of the local chapter are doing outstanding work in chemical fields. Among these are Ruth O ' Brien, widely known in textile chemistry: Dr. Lila Sands, instructor at the University of Arizona, where she is continuing research work; and Dr. Frances Long of the Desert Laborator)-, Tuscon, Arizona, who is engaged in an interesting line of work involving botany and chemistry ' . The year 1 924-2 ' i has been the most active in the history of Nitrogen chapter. Each member has given a scientific paper on such subjects as " Chemical Strategy in Peace and War, " " Dyeing of Silk, " " Wool and Cotton, " " Chemistry of the Blood, " " Chemical Indus- tries of Nebraska, " and " Insulin.

Fogg, Director ' HE purpose of tlie youngest division of the University, the School of Journahsm, organized May, 1923, is to serve the state by equipping writers, editors, publishers — prepar- ing students to meet the opportunities and responsibilities of leader- ship. This it seeks to do, first, by requiring a sound, liberal educa- tion — including knowledge of those fields in which the writer and the interpreter of news needs to be well grounded; and, then, by giving practical, professional training (comprising about one-fourth of the four-year course leading to the Certificate of Journalism with the degree of Bachelor of Arts) . The school especially premiums character (honor, courage, will power, social conscience — service) ; mentality (alertness, straight and fair-play thinking, sense of values, studiousness, imagination); keen power of observation; ability to record ac- curately, lucidly, interestingly what one observes and thinks; per- sonality (address, language, tact, ability to win and hold the confi- dence of people) ; efficiency (initiative, resourcefulness, dependa- bility, business judgment, concentration, working power under pressure) . The school was given national recognition in December by election, on the basis of the work its first year, to the American Association of Schools and Departments of Journalism, membership in which is now confined to fifteen institutions (thirteen state and two private) among the over 200 giving instruction in journalism. The first Journalism Week at the University, with the School of Journalism as host, was held February 17-21 — the fifty-second and largest convention of the Nebraska Press Association, the first annual meeting of the Nebraska Writers ' Guild, and a series of addresses, to journalism students especially, by representative Nebraska editors. These addresses, reported practically in full m The Daily Jiebrask an , were reprinted as a bulletin of the School of Journalism - " Journalism-Week Addresses by Nebraska Editors, 1925 " — and dis- tributed among editors and publishers of the 425 newspapers of the state. A survey of newspaper conditions in Nebraska — editorial, business management, mechanical — was made by the School of Journalism. The analyzed facts and opinions as to practice and problems will be made the basis of reports — bulletins —aimed at practical .service, especially to the weekly press. The Typography Laboratory is the school ' s outstanding new-equipment feature this year. Students there get practical instruction, in conjunction with the new course in Typography, in the fundamentals of printing: they are handed printers ' tools and they learn to use them; they learn the idiom of the craft. To equip students for the weekly and the small-city-daily newspaper fields especially was the course launched. Not the production of printers, but the training of newspaper workers with an understanding of the merchanical aspects of their profession, is the aim. The Daily Tsjebrasi an office was equipped last summer and its regulations and procedure revamped to facilitate its operation as a School of Journalism laboratory. The ' ) lebras an (established in 1901) v. ' as made a seven-column paper. A separate office was secured for the business staff. Practical laboratory training in writing and selling advertisements was started in co-operation with the economics course in advertising. Page . 0 k.E.JL lit L . I r rr T-rT rr-n-i -T .

The fraternity unites women in journalism s(t they may work together as a unit in an endeavor to raise the standards of the profession. It confers honor upon women who distinguish themselves either as under- graduates or as professionals and it seeks to accomplish definite achievements by improving work- ing conditions for women in the profession and by inspiring the individual to greater effort. Upperclasswomen, who have distinguished themselves as students in journalism at a college or university where there is an active chapter of Theta Sigma Phi, are eligible to membership in the fraternity. Lambda chapter of Theta Sigma Phi was organized at the University of Nebraska in 1916. Today the active chapter has a membership of ten young women, seven of whom were initiated last fall. All are either registered in the School of Journalism or are majoring in that line of work. Meetings are held twice every month. While the chapter this year has done little to publish tlie fact that a women ' s journalistic fraternity exists at the University of Nebraska, the greater part of the year has been spent in organizing and in building up the chapter, and in teaching the new members the working of the organization. The present Theta Sigma Phi is working toward a future Theta Sigma Phi which will be one of the best known and one of the most influential professional organizations on the campus. There is not a woman in the organization who does not feel that with the fraternity stand- ards behind her, she will be able to accomplish greater things.

OR very many years, there has been an interest in the de- velopment of art mstruction in Lincoln. A group of public spirited citizens organized the Hayden Art Club in the early days in the city of Lincoln. Later this was reorganized as the Nebraska Art Association. Through the influence of these two societies a certain amount of art instruction was kept alive in the University during the early years of its existence. At critical times these organizations even contributed to the fund from which the salaries were paid for our instructors. In 1912, the school was reorganized with its present constitution and has shown remarkable growth both in the enrollment of students and in the scope and range of the study and development of the arts. It IS an autonomous sch(X)l v ' hich is affiliated with the College of Arts and Science and the Teachers College. It recommends vari- ous certificates and graduates its students through these colleges. Students may major in the School of Fine Arts and take the regular degrees of the college, or they may specialize more in- tensively and receive the degree of the Bachelor of Fine Arts, or the degree of the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Education. Although offering specialized courses, the school is not exclusively profes- sional, as each of the three departments is composed of tvi ' o divisions, one devoted to theor) ' and the other to its application. This makes it possible to lay a more adequate foundation in art without sacrificing the academic standing. From a rather small beginning in 1912, the sch(x)l has t ' rown at a very rapid rate. Class registra- tions for the current year show an increase of ,0 ' } over the preceding year. The school is divided into three departments: Drawing and painting, dramatics, and music. Since its reorganization, the school has greatly amplified all of its courses. In drawing and paint- ing a large department has been developed, including cast and life design, interior decoration, and illustration. It has added perspective, pictorial composition, artistic anatomy, pottery, modeling and sculpture, commercial art, lettering, and state design. In the ownership of the University is a splendid collection of original and excellent copies of paintings and statuary. Profes.sor P. UL H. Grummann Director PaKe 54 rSBBSr! ' .: i iiixxiitiiiii rm In elocution and dramatic art a large number ot courses are maintained eovenng the subjects essential to the development of dramatic technique. The work has been expanded to include all the essentials of a thorough dramatic training, a part of which is proper work in makeup and stage con- struction. In addition to the various literature studies in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Schouf of Fine Arts maintains a department of dramatic literature which supplies theoretical instruction to students of dramatics. A course in phonetics under Dr. Louise Pound, and one in the history- of the theater closely relate to this work. The Dramatic Club and the University Players are organizations which inspire more interest and offer practical laboratories for the application of the principles of acting. The University Players under the name of the Temple Stock Company annually present a series of plays. Probably the largest development has come in the department of music, where the theoretical work is taken care of in the history and theor ' of music. Courses in counterpoint, composition, musical orientation, musical interpretation, instrumentation, and composition have been added. The system of accredited teachers has provided musical instruction of the first order. This system gives the student a large measure of freedom in the selection of teachers and safeguards the work accomplished by a careful system of checking on the part of the school. In each of the divisions of the School of Fine Arts, three public school methods courses are pro- vided, giving candidates adequate instruction for public school work. The School of Fine Arts, through each of its departments, serves the University generally by furnishing free art exhibitions during the year, by supplying dramatic performances, and by furnishing musical convocations through the University chorus and University orchestra. Students of the school frequently play under its auspices for the radio stations. The honorary organization of the School of Fine Arts is Alpha Rho Tau. Its members are elected from the faculty and from the senior class on the basis of scholarship and general proficiency in the fine arts.

Its purpose is to create an appreciation of classical music and to maintain a knowledge of musical history, as well as to promote interest in the associated arts, such as painting, drawing, and dramatics. Yearly examinations are held in order that a high standard of musical knowledge may he maintained. Early in the fall Delta Omicron gave a tea for all women majoring in music. A musical program was presented by alumnae. Delta Omicron has given monthly programs each year for members, alumnae, and friends. These programs have been organized artistically and given by the members. A costumed cycle from the Japanese opera, " The Mikado, " was staged by Mrs. Maude Fender-Gutzmer and Mrs. Charles Matson early in the year. Christmas carols sung around the tree composed the December program. Vocal and instrumental compositions by old masters were on the January program and a costumed playlet, " Old Songs, " was given in February. " April Showers " and " Irish Blarney " in April were followed by opera selections in May. Discussions and readings supplemented the programs. Members of Delta Omicron and the group as a whole serve the University, Lincoln, and the whole state. Several radio programs have been broadcasted. The Delta Omicron Trio gave a program at Aurora. Membership in the .sorority is extended by invitation to students in the School ot Fine Arts who show musical ability. OFFICERS President M.

At this time the School V, J of Fine Arts had just begun its growth, and was still struggling for recognition. Almost all of the studentsi knew each other and there grew up among them a fine spirit of comrade- ship. It was to perpetuate this spirit and to promote the love and understanding of art that the Art Club came into existence. Because of the rapid growth of the School of Fine Arts, the Art Club is increasing in mem- bership and in activities. The standards for membership are being raised to meet the growing number of students in the department and the organization is becoming confined to those who are strictly interested in art. Art Club encourages work among the students by giving a student exhibition annually. The work exhibited is done without the aid of an instructor. It includes work m dr.iwing and paint- ing, modeling, design, and ceramics. OFFICERS President LouiSE Austin Secretary Velm.a H.ATCH Treasurer , Fr.

This growth has called into being various organizations whose purpose has been to relate that type of interest and activity to other professions and activities on the campus, as well as to sponser a closer social and pro- fessional relationship among the students of that department. It was for this reason that Beta chapter of Sigma Lambda, national art society, was estab ' li. hed on the Nebraska campus in 1924. Miss Stellar, head of the department of drawing and painting, acts as adviser to the group. The sorority devotes several afternoons in the year to social meetings for the purpose of bringing all the women m the department together. Sigma Lambda entertained at the annu.il art exhibition by giving a tea for all visiting art instructors. Together with the Dramatic Club and Delta Omicron, Sigma Lambda plans to entertain all the v. ' omen in the School of Fine Arts, in an effort to bring those women whose interests are in music, painting, and drama into contact with one another. Every two weeks Sigma Lambda holds meetings at which members discuss topics that are of interest to the group as a professional organization.

Benefit performances of plays have been given; plays have been presented out-of-town: various readers have been brought to the University; and in 1902 a play was produced every third week. This year the club has brought to the University public Bess Gearhart Morrison in her reading of Channinf Pollock ' s play, " The Fool. " and Ellen Van Volkenburg of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, who gave an imitative interpretation of Maude Adams ' production of the Barrie comedy, " What Every Woman Knows. " Besides this, the club has been called upon to direct many plays and furnish entertainment on numerous occasions. OFFICERS President Neva Jones Vice-President ' . DwiCHT Merriam Secretary-Treasurer Pauline Gell. tly University Players Professor H. Alice Hov.ell QROFESSOR H. ALICE HOWELL, head of the Dramatic Department, has placed the Univer- sity of Nebraska Dramatic Department upon a basis that no other University has obtained. Nebraska was the first University to establish an fndividual dramatic department. Miss Howell, when a mere girl, came to the University to teach dramatic art, which was then part of the rhetoric department. Through her untiring elforts the Dramatic Department has .ittained a high degree of excellence and fame throughout the United States. In 1912, the School of Fine Arts was organized in- to its present form. This enabled students to take forty hours of dramatic work in addition to the academic courses. As a result, the course of the department it- self was greatly expanded and it became possible for Miss Howell to do much more work of a technica character. Miss Howell ' s lovable character and splendid de- votion to her work has served the true art of acting, and the elevation of the depart- ment. Miss Howell As Joan of Arc Page 60 .M ypET?

Miss Howell can not sustain the successful department which she has built without assistance. The assistants are Mr. Herbert A. Yenne, Edwin Hart Jenks, and Fern H. Hubbard. Herbert Yenne has an unusual distinction. To be liked by many people is very delightful, but to be liked by all is a rare tribute. Mr. Yenne belongs to the latter class. He is assistant director of the University Players and author of the " Son of Setewa. " He was acting head of the Dramatic Department during Miss Howell ' s absence. Mr. Yenne has played in professional stock companies and with the Mountain, Desert and Forest Players in California. After his season of work in California, he was highly praised in the Los Angeles Times. Mr. Jenks has been in the Dramatic Department for four years and has played in stock companies and in pictures in New York. He takes a personal interest in developing the personal- ity of each dramatic student. Mr. Jenks adds a strong force to the department. Miss Hubbard is a new instructor in the Dramatic Department. She received her B.A. in 1924 from Nebraska. When in school she was a member of the Dramatic Club and the Harold Sumption, stage manager for the Players, and Harold Felton, electrician, have aided much in the production of this season ' s plays. Mr. Sumption is not only an efficient stage man- ager but an actor of remarkable ability. Mr. Felton, who is well known among the patrons of the players, is generally cast for juvenile parts. He is always a popular spirit among lovers of the Players. Page 61 University Players y HE purpose of the University Players is to keep the spoken dr.ima alive. The Players V J offer to the public intellectual and artistic entertainment. They produce annually a Shakesperian play, some bright comedy, and one or two plays which have been successful in New York and which have not yet reached the west. In choosing these plays, they are examined for their true merit and the opportunities within the plays for real interpretative work to be done by the Players. Through these plays, dramatic students are given the opportunity to test their powers, to interpret intellectually and dramatically all various characters and situations, to acquire the ease, power, and grace that comes from practical stage work. The players are chosen from the third and fourth year students of a department containing almost four hundred and fifty students. On November 3, 1915, the University Players became the Temple Stock Company. They have produced countless plays each year and are assured a full house for four performances of the same play in Lincoln. These plays are later taken on the road and presented in nearby towns. PaKc 62 Wedding Scene from " Much Ado About Aiotlnng " University Players HE Players opened their tenth annual season with " RoUo ' s Wild Oats, " by Claire Kummer. V J Strong parts in the play were carried by Dwight Merriam, Pauline Gellatly, Martha Dudley, and Hart Jenks. On November 21, a myster y play " Whispering Wires, " a three-act mystery drama by Kate McLaren, was presented. Delia Weatherhogg added much to the atmosphere. The work of Neva Jones was also good. Male leads were taken by Hart Jenks and Darrell Starnes. The play deals with a rich man who has been threatened with death. The action of the play was stirring and not until late in the last act does the mystery become solved. ■■Ltiyalties, " one of the best of Galsworthy ' s plays, was produced during the Christmas sea- son. The movement of the play grows out of a bitter clash between Jew and aristocrats, and introduces a situation which gives an opportunity for all London classes to voice an opinion. One of the most unusual characteristics of the play was that there was no technical hero of the play to whom sympathy might have been offered. Darrell Starnes played the part of the Jew. Court Scene from " Much Ado About 7 (othinj; " Page 63 =S?£: Son of Setewa University Players gN unusual program, an evening (if four one-act plays and an interlude, was presented in February. The plays were: " Judge Lynch, " by John W. Rogers; " The Silken Bully, " by M. J. Phillips; " It ' s Time Something Happened, " by Arthur Doyle; " The Valiant, " by H. Hall; and " The Son of Setewa, " by Herbert A. Yenne. Three of the plays had never been staged before. " The Son of Setewa, " a premeire production, was based on one of the historical incidents collected by the author. The play deals v -ith the naming of Corn Rock. Starving Hopi Indians were forced to trade their children to the Spaniards for corn at the foot of this rock. The annual Shakesperian production, " Much Ado About Nothing, " was given in March. The colorful costumes along with the unique stage settings added much to the beauty and spirit of the play. Coleita Aitken, Delia Weatherhogg, H irt Jenks and Harold Fclton were outstand- ing characters. The LIniversity Players produced " The Masquerader " in March. The dramatic interest of the play centered on a dual role which was taken by Hart Jenks. The Players concluded a most successful season with the " Devil ' s Disciple. " The play was exquisitely costumed and the stage settings were true to the period of the play. The play was based upon true historical incidents of the Revolutionary war according to the author of the play, Bernard Shaw. The plot ot the story v. ' as based upon a young man roared m a Puritan community at which he rebells and leaves home. Brought home for the reading of his father ' s will, he is mistaken for a lawless minister and taken away to be hung. He accepts the masquerader but is saved at the crucial moment by the return of the minister. Paup SI t Phi Beta Kappa QHl BETA KAPPA, honorary scholastic society, was founded at William and Mary College in 1776. At present there are fifty-two chapters in as many American colleges and uni- versities. The Alpha of Nebraska chapter was founded in 1896, Phi Beta Kappa seeks to promote good scholarship among university students. Each year the chapter elects from one-tenth to one-sixth of the graduating class. Election is based upo.i scholarship averages throughout the university course. The annual Phi Beta Kappa address is an established custom at Nebraska. A speaker of note is secured for this occasion and the public invited to attend. The annual address before the joint meeting of the Nebraska chapters of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi was delivered on May 1 , 192i, by Dr. J. W. Garner of the University of Illinois on " Education and International Affairs. " OFFICERS President M.AURICE H. Weseen Vice-President Mrs. R. N. Westover Secretary A. R.

Selection, even of under- graduates, is not based upon classroom grades alone, but upon the combination of qualities of mind and character which give assurance that the candidate can become a fruitful member in the fields of science. Membership is of four grades, associate, active, alumni, and honorary. Chapter activities are carried on by the active membership. These activities are of a sufficiently broad scope to be of benefit, not only to all grades of membership, but to the University as a whole. Chapters in various schools have developed several kinds of useful activity. Some emphasize mutual encouragement of research, others the interpretation of science to non-technical audiences, and still others social fellowship among scientific workers. At Nebraska the habit has been to combine these different functions. During the current year the chapter has been guest of the Colleges of Medicine and Engineering and of the department of animal pathology. It has wit- nessed demonstrations of work and listened to accounts of new researches. It has also sponsored a non-technical lecture on the structure of the atom. OFFICERS President W. L. DeB. UFRE Vice-President J- E. Weaver Secretary E. N. Anderson Treasurer M. G. G.ab. ' H Councillor R- H. WOLCOTT Page 65 ' W ' College of Agriculture (By E. A. Burnett, Dean) J ' -HE College of Agriculture has a three-fold responsibility to the state. Education, experimentation, and extension make up the three E " s of its program. The college teaches the science of agriculture, the business of farming, and the art of country livmg. It trains both men and women for the business of life. The experiment station works out new problems in agri- culture, applying scientiiic methods to farm practice. The Agri- cultural Extension Service makes contacts with farm communities, .iJapting the results of investigation to their local needs. Two types of instruction are offered — agriculture for men and home economics for women. In the Schools of Agriculture at Lincoln and at Curtis secondary courses are also offered. The college courses for men have two things in common. They require sufficient general training to furnish the elements of a liberal educa- tion. They require good general training in the sciences relating to agriculture and in farm practice, with additional training in tome closely related technical group. To illustrate, students must complete the required courses in English, in economics, history and sociology. All must become reasonably proficient in chemistry, biology and physics. All must complete general courses familiaris- ing them with the broad field of the business of agriculture. Be- yond this each must become proficient in a special line such as soil fertility, animal nutrition, or rural education. Students may also specialize in the applied sciences which relate to agriculture and may become proficient in one of the fields of agricultural research. Many students specialize in farm community organization. A student at the Agricultural College enjoys all the privileges of the University in societies, fraterni- ties and athletic sports. There are organized physical training and athletics on the agricultural campus. Proficiency in football, basketball and track, lead to places on the University teams. Twelve agricul- tural students won letters last year. The instruction in physical training is being greatly increased. What better choice can be made by the young woman who is entering college than a course in home economics? Her education, in the main, will not be so different from that of students who choose the classical courses. She may study language, literature, sociology, economics, history and psychology. She will study the principles of biology, chemistry, and physics and their application to human nutrition, per- sonal health, and the practical arts. In addition she will acquire a knowledge and appreciation of the principles of design and color as applied to the selection of clothing and home furnishing. The train- ing received in a home economics course prepares a young woman for one of several vocations. She may become a homemaker, teacher, costume designer, hospital dietitian, tea-room or cafeteria manager, community or social worker. From the standpoint of economics she will be fitted for wise management of the income and for placing the home on a sound financial basis. E. A. BURNIiTT b.. The experiment station is organized for agricultural research. It has contributed more than any other agency to the body of teachable knowledge now in use by the Agricultural College. The experi- ment stations, state and federal, have worked out and introduced or refined most of the present-day farm practices. Frequently the source of discoveries has been forgotten by the farmer, even though the state profits by millions of dollars annually. A recent publication estmiated that the increased wealth of Nebraska through the efforts of the experiment station amounts to $26,000,000 annually. Many of the station ' s problems are difficult and do not readily yield to control. For example, hog cholera was studied for more than twenty years before a satisfactory control measure was found. More than a million dollars were expended in this investigation. During this period the losses amounted to many millions of dollars annually. Finally a remedy was found and no epidemic can now occur under proper control measures. The maintenance of soil fertility is made possible through agricultural research. The use of nitrates, potash, phosphorus and lime in soil fertility has been worked out b ' the experiment stations. The maintenance of crop yields measures prosperity. Crop failures spell poverty. Hundreds of new crops have been tested by the experiment stations. New crosses and selections of superior hardiness or quality arc .mnu.iUy produced from which improved strains may be developed to replace the older variety. In animal production the dairyman has profited by more productive anim.ils and better feeding methods introduced through systematic study of these problems. Standard rations are now calculated for the dairy herd based upon careful experiments. Likewise the effect of heredity and selection in economic production has been proved. By such means costs are lowered, profits increased, and indus- tries developed. The Agricultural Extension Service is the third arm of the college. It is the distributor of new methods. It adapts the results of the agricultural experiment station to the individual farm. It organizes groups of farmers to work out their own special problems. It introduces new labor-saving devices to lessen the drudgery of the farm household. It organizes clubs for different farm groups, study groups for women, clubs to discuss farm organization, production, and marketing for men, and junior clubs for boys and girls. All these develop interest in the life of the rural community. The county is the unit in extension work. The county agent is the circuit rider of rural com- munity improvement. He organizes the different farm communities with a township leader wherever possible. Every county must have a number of definite projects or problems on which to work. Among them are such projects as hog sanitation, purebred sires, baby beef, cow testing associations for the dairy- man, the study of soil fertility and soil erosion, more legumes for the farm (sweet clover and alfalfa), variety tests of grain, orchard management for the fruit farmer, drainage of wet lands, and prevention of soil washing on hilly lands. For women they include the accredited farm flock, clothing construction, the care of children, home care of the sick, selection of food and balanced rations, labor-saving devices for the kitchen, study clubs, and many other projects, some one of which is selected by a group as sufficient interest to warrant a systematic study. The Agricultural College offers a type of education which brings personal success in life and develops high ideals of public service. Through its practical and scientific research it seeks to develop Nebraska ' s agricultural industries and wealth-producing power. Through its extension service it seeks to act as friend and adviser to every rural community. " . -t?- ! Moi ' fuid Fuute Cux Engel R.

It was organized during the school year of 1909-1910 and since that time it has grown steadily. At present the club numbers most of the men in the college as members. A number of convocation programs are p resented by the Ag Club each year to all Ag College students. One of especial interest this year was the occasion of presenting medals to the judging teams that had represented the University of Nebraska at the lead- ing livestock shows of the nation. Three team.s, the fat stock team, the dairy team, and poultry team were honored in the program. The Nebraska team won first place in fat stock judging at the International Livestock Exposition at Chicago with the highest team score; one of its members won individual honors with the highest score made in the con- test since it was first held. The Ag Club also manages several " ' mixers " during the year. These are open affairs and students of the city campus attend them along with the Ag students. The overall- apron party is an annual affair, one of the main social events of the Ag College calendar. The one given this year was especially well attended. Each year the club holds a " stag " oyster feed for all Ag College men. This year the program was made up of two rounds of boxing, a series of toasts, and a medical consulta- tion in which the patient got ' " soaked " for his fee. The climax of the activities of the year is Farmers " Fair. This event, planned and presented by the Ag Club and Home Ec Club together, is attended by people from all over the state. It serves to advertise the College of Agriculture and incidentally, the whole University. The program is well balanced, combining circus, vaudeville, and educational divisions. The day begins with a mammoth parade through the main streets of Lincoln, and the carnival continues through the afternoon and evening. Through these activities, Ag Club tries to develop its members ' qualities of leadership. This work is calculated to fit the men for places as leaders in their own community activities after graduation.

The business meetings of the club are held the iirst Tuesday of each month. A social meeting, planned to meet particular needs of the students, is held each month. The purpose of the cluh is to create a greater interest in home economics, to promote acquaintances, to advertise the College of Agriculture, to support all student activities that make for a greater University, and to develop the social side of college life. Officers are elected before the close of the academic year for the succeeding year. The president, vice-president, and treasurer are chosen from the junior, sophomore, and fresh- man classes respectively. At the opening of the new academic year a secretary is elected from among the incoming treshmen. The club ' s social activities are many. They include picnics, parties, teas, and the spon- soring of Agricultural College " mixers. " The Home Economics Club has become interested in many campus activities.

The Nebraska chapter was founded in the year 1904-0 ' i, with eight active members, but soon increased its membership to nineteen. The eleven newly-elected men were very active in the College of Agriculture, in University activities and in addition had attained high scholarship. At the time of the announcement of these elections a gold medal was presented to the sophomore who had attained the highest ranking in scholarship in his freshman year. This was done to stimulate interest in scholarship among the students and especially among the incoming freshmen. Rufus Henry Moore was awarded the medal this year. The annual banquet was held in January, with fifty-two members present. This num- ber included active and alumni members and alumni of other chapters. After the meal was served the evening was spent in recounting the history of the fraternity and in hearing pre- dictions for its future as they were presented by the s peakers and the toastmaster. Alpha Zeta was also instrumental in assuring the success of Organised Agriculture Week. The active men helped to some extent in the advertising of the program and in preparing for, and entertaining the visitors. The active chapter also sponsor a banquet m April for all students of the College of Agriculture. The purpose of this banquet is to get the students better acquainted with each other, with their college, and with Alpha Zeta and its aims. OFFICERS ChanceUor ViROiL MiCH.

Zeta chapter has engaged in a variety of activities this year. In the fall Omicron Nu presented a scholarship cup to Miss Alice Slama, the sophomore woman with the highest scholastic average for her freshman year in the home economics department. This cup will be presented annually and is expected to encourage young women to achieve high scholarship from the beginning of the college course. A two-act play, " Clothes and the Woman, " was sponsored by Omicron Nu for Organized Agriculture Week on the agricultural campus in January. The play was part of the entertainment arranged for the women from Nebraska farm homes who visited the campus that week. Every year Zeta chapter gives a party for all home economics women. This year the party was held at Ellen Smith Hall on Valentine day. In February the active and alumnae chapters of Omicron Nu held an open meeting at which Miss Frances Zuill, head of the home economics department at Iowa State, spoke on " Objectives in Home Economics Education. " Miss Zuill also spoke to some of the regular classes. A " better posture " campaign was sponsored by Omicron Nu in the home economics depart- ment. Posters were collected and placed in the halls and a large mirror was set in a conspicuous place so that the women could " check up " on their postures often. Each member of Zeta chapter has been assigned one or two professional periodicals in the home economics field to review before one of the regular chapter meetings. This is expected to give all members a chanje to become better acquainted with a large number of such periodicals.

It is an organisation formed for the promotion of interest in the animal industry, both in the college, and on the farm, and for the betterment of educational facilities of the industry. To be eligible for membership, students must have completed three semesters in the University and have specified their intention of majoring in animal husbandry. Activities of the Block and Bridle Club arc extremely varied and have been chosen because of the training they afford the members. The club assists in the entertainment and educational programs of the department on Feeders Day and during Organized Agriculture Week. Its members prepare a program for University visitors from South Omaha on the forenoon of the day the homecoming football game is played. In addition to these activities the club directs two Ag College mixers during the year and accepts a full share of the work of Farmers ' Fair. Each year appropriations arc made to help send the University judging teams to their contests. Three contests are conducted on the campus, and appropriate awards are made to the winners. One of these series of contests is for Ag College freshmen, a second is for all Ag College men, and a third for animal husbandry students of the Smith-Hughcs high schools of the state. The chief activities of the club is the Baby International Livestock Show presented in October, at which the students compete for prizes on their ability as herdsmen and gnxims. OFFICERS President N.

The purpose of the club is to unify and so make more effective the efforts and interests of dairy students in promoting and directing those college activities which are of special interest and value to dairymen. The club also attempts to create a greater interest in dairying and to promote acquaintances and good fellowship among students interested in dairying. The club began its work this year with the annual dairy maids ball, held in the Agri- cultural College gymnasium. All freshmen were invited as guests since the ball is given primarily for new students entering the College of Agriculture. During Organized Agricul- ture Week the Dairy Club operated a cafeteria lunch stand in the Dairy building and each day " Dairyland " became more widely known. The proceeds from " Dairyland " go to help defray the expenses of the dairy judging teams at the National Dairy Show. Other college activities directed and managed by the club are: A dairy judging contest held for breeders and students in Organized Agriculture Week; the state high school dairy judging contest held in the spring; a dairy cattle exhibit for the Baby International Stock Show; and a number of dances to which all students are invited.

The purpose of the 4-H Club is to develop g(X)d fellowship among students of the Univer- sity who formerly have been members of 4-H Clubs, to encourage the enrollment of present club memb ers in the University, to help club members get acquainted when they come to the University, to create a desire for a longer college course among the " short-course " men, to advertise the University during Boys " and Girls " Club Week, and to promote and create interest in club work among high school students. The 4-H Club has been prominent in the activities of the College of Agriculture. Each year at the State Fair it assists in caring for the boys and girls in club work. In October the annual " mixer " " is given for the new members. Later in the year the 4-H Club entertains the men who are taking short courses in the College of Agriculture. It also assists in conducting several high school judging contests in the spring of the year. Each year it sponsors a " mixer " for all agricultural students of the University, and builds a float for the Farmers " Fair parade. OFFICERS First Semester President Leon.a D.

The purpose of this club is two-fold: first, to keep abreast of current economic questions which affect agriculture; and second, to advance the interests of the department. Men who are especially well informed are brought to the club meetings to speak on agricultural problems. Other problems that are of particular interest to the club and department are also presented and discussed. In recent years the number of students majoring in rural economics has increased rapidly. The economic problems of the farmer during the years following the late war have been such that students have wanted to learn more of the principles of economics. The membership in Oikia has increased proportionately to the number of .students major- ing in this department.

It is composed of juniors and seniors who are definitely preparing to teach, and men who are at present teaching vocational agriculture under the provisions of the Smith-Hughes law. The purpose of the fraternity is to foster the highest standards and ideals in agricul ' tural education and to promote a more intimate relationship among men who have chosen the profession of teaching agricultural subjects. The organization attempts to discover and develop teachers of agriculture who will be efficient rural leaders in their communities. The organization is young. It represents a comparatively new field of professional endeavor. It rests not on the record of past deeds, but justifies its existence in its attempt to meet and solve some of the pressing problems which confront those in the field of voca- tional agriculture. The Nebraska chapter of Alpha Tau Alpha was organized in February, 192 , with eleven charter members. Professor H. E. Bradford and Assistant Professor C. C.

Allen Gamma Sigmia Delta y HE honor society of a;4riculturc, Gamma Sigma Delta, came into existence as the union of V j two organizations whose names are combined into one. The honor society of agricuhure was organized in the University of Minnesota College of Agriculture, under the name, ■ " The Agriculture Honor Society of America. " It expected to extend at once to the leading col- leges of agriculture. Gamma Sigma Delta was already established upon an honorary basis with a history extending back to December 1, 1905. One chapter house had figured in that history, but since May ?, 191, i, all chapter house relations have been discontinued. The united society in 1917 ratified a constitution drafted for it by a committee consisting of Prof. W. F. Coover of the Iowa State College, Dr. R. W. Thatcher, until recently, director of the New York Agricultural Experiment Station and a member of President Coolidge ' s agricultural commission, and Dr. E. M. Freeman of the University of Minnesota College of Agriculture. This constitution provides that the object of the society shall be " to encourage high standards of scholarship in all branches of agricultural science and education, and a high degree of excellence in the practice of agricultural pursuits, by the election to membership of those students of the graduating and post-graduate classes in agricultural colleges who have shown exceptional ability during their undergraduate or graduate work, and of those alumni and faculty members who have rendered signal service to the cause of agricultural development. " The national organization consists of chapters in leading land-grant colleges of agriculture, a national executive committee, and a legislative council in which the college chapters are repre- sented. A charter has been granted to an alumni chapter at Washington, D. C, where many members are connected w ' lth the United States Department of Agriculture. Membership is of three types — student, faculty, alumni. Student members may be elected from the upper one-fourth of the graduating class when they are within one semester of gradua- tion. Graduate students must have shown striking ability to carry on research work or advanced study in agriculture. Faculty members must " have been engaged in work in agriculture or in science related to agriculture for at least three years and have shown exceptional ability as teachers or investigators. " Eligibility to al umni membership depends upon signal service to the cause of agricultural development and cannot be conferred within five years after graduation. In practice, elections to membership are in the hands of faculty members. It has not been the practice of the Nebraska chapter to elect all whose grades render them eligible for member- ship. Personal character, a vital interest in agriculture, and promise of leadership in some phase of agriculture are considered. OFFICERS President E. E. Br.u:ki;TT Vice-President F. D. Keim Treasurer A.

Bhosalk) ONEY spent in supportintj the Colleije of Agriculture is an investment that returns milHons to the state. During one year the value nt work done by the Nebraska College of Agriculture is more than twenty-six million dollars. Some of this work is here outlined. Growing of winter wheat was a failure in Nebraska at first hut improved methods of seed-bed preparation, better knowledge of dates and rates of seeding, proper crop rotation, and use of manures have all been extensively promoted in the state by the college. Use of superior varieties of winter wheat, including Nebraska No. 60 and Nebraska No. 61, increases the wealth of the state each year by $4,000,000. Nebraska No. 60 and Nebraska No. 6 wheat were developed at the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station. Use of Kherson and other early varieties of oats, developed or introduced by the College of Agricul- ture, increases the wealth of the state each year by $2,800,000. Kherson oats were originally introduced in the United States by the Nebraska Agricultural Ex- periment Station. Poultry raising on many Nebraska farms has been greatly improved since the establishment of poultry work in the college. Practical demonstrations show- ing how to increase greatly the poultry profits of the average farm by culling, improved methods of feeding, breeding, grading, and shipping are held at many places in the state. In 192.1 and 1924 the College of Agriculture opened Hessian fly field observation stations to deter- mine the " tly-free date " for all Nebraska counties, and conducted a campaign for late wheat sowing to corres- pond. By means of a publicity campaign the farmers were instructed in this method of fly control. The result was a saving to them of $750,000. The Agricultural College department of engineer- ing tests various makes of tractors in order to deter- mine their adaptability to farm use. In the last few years many run-down orchards have been reclaimed and put on a paying basis through the work of the college. The college is now working especially to develop small home orchards and to extend the fruit-growing regions. Growing of certified seed potatoes in northwest Nebraska and the use of certified seed potatoes in the irrigated districts of the North Platte valley now bring a net gain of $100,000 to the farmers each year. Growers who raised seed potatoes, instead of table stock, according to instructions from the college, gained $40,000, on an average, in 1922 and 192. ' ' v Growlers in the irrigated dis- tricts are learning to depend on these same certified potatoes for seed, instead of using their own stock and so are increasing their yield approximately 100 bushels per acre. Before the college be- gan work m this problem Ne- braska growers were importing seed potatoes and now they sell them to other states. The college plans about sixty farmsteads a year. The value of this work per year is appro- ximately $ion,ono. PaKe 81 Buck .Scrivner Bushnell Freidli Lingo Kiltz Ag Y. M, C. A, HE College of Agriculture Y. M. C. A. is a branch of the University Y. M. C. A. %. V It was organized in the spring of 1924, and became active on the agricultural campus in the fall of the same year. All men registered in the Agricultural College who subscribed in the University Y. M. C. A. financial drive, are members. This branch of the Y. M. C. A. was organized because both agricultural students and faculty members voiced a need of an organization to promote good fellowship and to aid in building a more Christian- like spirit on the agricultural campus. This campus is so far away from the University proper that the agricultural students find it difficult to take part in the activities of the University Y. M. C. A. The College of Agriculture Y. M. C. A. undertakes to carry out some of the work of the University Y. M. C. A , such as distributing the N books and student directories. It has, with the help of the Agriculture College branch of the Y. W. C. A., sponsored a convocation every month on the Agricultural campus and has promoted several Agricultural College mi.xers. The organization is working toward still greater usefulness to the College of Agriculture and the University of Nehrask.i m the future.

The purpose of the fair is three-fold, to advertise the College of Agricuhure, to bring the students of the college closer together, and to give students an opportunity to take part in the management of a large enterprise. Every man and woman registered in the college plays a part in making the fair i success. Early in the second semester the committees are selected by the board and prepara- tions begin in earnest. Every student is placed on some committee where he is best fitted to serve. From the time the committees are appointed work goes steadily forward. About a week before the fair all available space in the buildings is filled with em.bryonic floats and exhibits. The day before the fair all Ag students gather early in the morning and convert the beautiful campus into an attractive carnival ground. The day of the fair finds the commit tees putting the finishing touches to the product of their endeavors. In the afternoon and evening the carnival grounds are opened to the crowd, ten thousand strong. Among the most interesting features of the fair are a pageant, Follies, Snorpheum, Wild West, Barbecue, and the dance. The educational exhibits are designed to appeal to the more serious-minded and illustrate the work of students in the College of Agriculture. THE BOARD Manager Joseph Culbertson Assistant Managers N.

Cutter y HE keynote of medical practice is " Service. " A college of medicine J must have for its primary object the training of young men and young women to serve suffering humanity. The mere administration of relief from pain, while important, is not, however, the sole end in view. Service from a medical and surgical point of view implies, in the largest sense, instruction of the people in the prevention of disease and the relief of suffering, and real thought directed toward progress in medical science. A little over ten years ago, the University formally took over instruc- tion in medicine by the establishment of the College of Medicine in the city of Omaha. From time to time there have been added to the original building, additional buildings housing laboratories, an out-patient depart- ment, the University Hospital, the Nurses ' Home, etc. The University Hospital, the central building of the group, was opened for the recep- tion of patients in the late fall of 1917. Since that date more than six- teen thousand patients have been received and cared for. These patients have come to the hospital from the counties of the State of Nebraska upon the application of a qualified practitioner of medicine and surgery, coupled with the affidavit of the patient that he or she is without sufficient funds to employ competent medical assistance. Sixteen thousand persons gathered together in one community would make a city of reasonable size. Not all of this large number have been restored to perfect health. Some have died, some have been considerably improved, but the largest number by far have been restored to health and to earning capacity. This immense task has been accomplished with a hospital of small bed-capacity (one hundred and thirty) and through the untiring efforts of the staff of the institution, busy practitioners of medicine, who have given their time and service unstintingly and without one dollar of money compensation. These clinical teachers have placed upon the State of Nebraska a debt which it is hardly possible for the state to pay. Not only have the best physicians of the city of Omaha cared for this large number of hospital patients, but they have given liberally of their time in addition to the teaching of medicine and surgery — this m order that competent men and women may be trained to serve the people of the state. In the out-patient department patients who do not need hospital care but who are ill and need the advice of a competent physician are seen, the disease condition fully diagnosed, and the proper advice given. In the period since the hospital was opened, in addition to the hospital patients, the dispensary has received and cared for over tv. ' o hundred thousand patients ' visits. This does not mean two hundred thousand individual cases, but it does mean that over thirty thousand individuals who could visit the dispensary have been adequately cared for. In addition to the training of men and women in medicine and surgery, nurses ' training is offered by the University Hospital to a group of select young women who pursue the nurses " training course for a period of three years. Many of the students in nurses " training h.ive h.id more than the required four-year high school education. To those who have had two or more years of university or college work in certain required subjects, the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing is awarded. It is a matter of considerable pride to the University authorities that each year a splendid group of young women are graduated in nursing who are thoroughly trained in their profession and who constitute a large factor in conserving the health of the people of the state. V:w SU The dissemination to tlie lay piihlie ot intormation upon medical tacts, hcallh and hygienic meas- ures, and the like, has not been adequately cired for because of a lack of funds. It is hoped that i public health bulletin eman.iting from the College ot Medicine and widely distributed, may be made possible through appropriation at some future time. As it is, inquiries are answered for the larger part by letter, and the advice given usually leads to contact with some competent practitioner in the vicinity of the patient ' s home and the desired relief. Graduates of the College of Medicine are rapidly taken up by Nebraska communities requiring the services of competent practitioners. That they are successful and imbued with the idea of rea ' service is attested to by the high regard m which they are hekl by their respective communities. The enormous responsibility resting upon the physician requires th.it before graduation he receive the most careful training and instruction. To this end, great care is taken as to the type of students received. They must be sincere and this sincerity is tested by their willingness to work and to profit by the instruction offered. They must have a high sense of responsibility and this is fostered and de- veloped, insofar as it is possible of accomplishment, in the under-graduate years of medical instruction. Those competent to judge feel that this is being done at Nebraska with a reasonable degree of success and that the State of Nebraska may be proud of the products of its College of Medicine. Conducted at a low cost per student, its product is comparable in the highest degree with the product of institutions heavily endowed and with an operating cost many times that of Nebraska. The relation of the people of the state to the College of Medicine is constantly becoming closer, and with a somewhat larger hospital, now greatly needed, post-graduate instruction will be easily and adequately supplied to practitioners. Medicine is a progressive science, progressive to the extent that new facts and new discoveries compel the physicians to remain always a student. These new facts and discoveries can best be brought home to the busy practitioner by a post-graduate course designed to serve him and, through him, his community. Such courses have been maintained by the College of Medicine for several years and have been taken advantage of by a group of reasonable size each year. The newest thought in various phases of medicine and surgery, technical procedures, and im- proved method of treatment have been presented to this group of practitioners in a brief, concise manner. The continuance of such post-graduate courses is of the greatest importance to communities where the local physician cannot leave for a year or more of advanced study. The physician who is not willing to serve to the very utmost betrays the investment made in him by the state. The amount paid by the student in fees is but a fraction of the cost to the state of his training. The state, therefore, has a right to expect every graduate in medicine to return to the people, in the highest type of service, a liberal interest upon this investment. That the state is glad to jnake the investment is evidenced by the continued maintenance of the school; that the state is reasonably satisfied with the investment may not be gainsaid. Young men and young women, recipients of medical training at the hands of a beneficient state, can have no higher goal than that of discharging their debt by rendering real service to humanity.

It is the purpose of the scho il to institute and maintain a type of nursing educa- tion that w-iU prepare young women to meet community needs, such as administration and teaching in schools of nursing, public health work, and the nursing of the sick in the hospitals and homes of the community.

College of Medicine Plii Rlio Sigma BasJ(etball Team — College of Medicine Jntei rateniitv Champions Pase lOS College of Law (By Dean Warren A. Seavey) E ' HE general purpose of the College of Law is the improve- V V nient of the administration of justice in the state. It does not exist primarily to enable those who attend it to make .1 better living than others; it does not exist for the purpose of placing its graduates in a superior position which they may utilize tor their own advantage. Receiving the bounty of the state it IS under an obligation to return to the state, as a whole, the bene- M. ' i -- H tits of a public nature which the state has a right to expect from ■ -J3- J the expenditure of the public money. It must, therefore, not take ,1 narrow view of its duties and it must subordinate all other efforts to its primary object of causing justice to be accurate, speedy, and universal. In accomplishing this object the college expends its energy in three directions: in the education of those who will take part in the admin istration of justice: in assisting the bench and the bar of the state upon whom rests the immediate obligations of seeing ,, , , J, that the laws are enforced; and in doing what it can to improve W . A. ShAVhV . ' the general concepts concerning lustice. In the education of future lawyers and l:iw givers, the college first .seeks to find a fairly w-ell educated and homogeneous group w-ho show some special fitness for the work to be done. To accomplish this it has made a requirement of two years of college work and has suggested certain lines of preliniinar - work which will enable a student to ascertain for himself whether or not he probably has the qualities which will make, him successful in his chosen work. The two years requirement is made not because it gives to the student all the education w ' hich he should have, but only because at the present time it seems o be inadvisable to require more. As a matter of fact the study of law requires a maturity of miiid which makes it highly important that a student should have had considerable experience in intellectual pursuits. One of the plans for the future is to act as other schools have done in requiring either more academic work or more experience in business affairs which will tend to assist in the understanding of the complex problems which present themselves in law. Pace 106 In keeping with the single objective of benefit to the state as a whole, it is obvious also that the college must maintain the highest possible standards during its courses. With this in mind, it must eliminate all those who show any trait ot dishonesty — and hence the rule summarily dismissing those who are found guilty of any cheating. It must eliminate those who are either unwilling or unable to give the time or make the effort to understand legal reasoning. At the same time it is the function of the school to give enthusiasm to those who can and will learn and to render every assistance to its students. In this direction its future lies only along the lines of better teaching. This year the college is lending especial and individual aid to the freshmen. It is also, through its law quarterly, endeavor- ing to assist Its students to learn to do a finished piece of work by themselves and without more than the advice of the instructors. In future ye.ir.-i it is hoped that the library may be made more and more the center of student work with a professional law librarian who will be able to render assistance in the search for materials, with a more complete selection of books, and better facilities for using them in small groups. In the minds of the faculty there is also the dream of a dormitory m which all law students will be housed and in which for a period of a few years they will forget pretty much all except the wonderful dramas filled with human hopes and woes which are contained in law books. In the tithcr aspects of the vi ' ork of the College of Law it hopes and expects to continually do more in assisting the state, both directly and indirectly. A part of the function of the faculty is in mak- ing investigations of Nebraska law, both for the purpose of more definitely ascertaining what it is and for the purpose of making it better. With this work will naturally go the writing of general law treatises, the compiling of case books, and other works which will assist the profession over the whole country. This work, so far from preventing good instruction, furnishes an incentive to the instructor to learn all there is to know about the subject he teaches and the students directly gain the benefit of this stimulation, as in the days when Roscoe Pound laid in Nebraska the basis of his work. In conclusion — and this is the result to which all efforts tend — the college hopes that in the state and throughout the country it will be known as having honest, courageous, and hardworking graduates, of value to the communities in vs ' hich they live. Pane 10 " Dunlap Gasser Obermann Baisch Christman Hanson Nelson Paterson Cain Weltmer Ciosier Delta Theta Phi OELTA THETA PHI is .i professional fraternity for men in the field of law. The organization was founded at Baldwin University, in 1900, and now has fifty-five active senates and twenty-one alumni senates. The aim of the fraternity is to unite in a group students of the law who intend to enter the legal profession. It fosters high scholarship and each year the national organization awards scholarship keys to the members ranking in the highest fifteen per cent of the graduating class. Among other activities are the bi ' monthly meetings, at which speeches are given by eminent jurists on the higher topics of the law. The organization encourages the trying of moot-court cases, from which is gained knowledge of the practical application of the law. The fraternity keeps in touch with its alumni through The Paper Boo . its official publication, issued quarterly by the national senate. OFFICERS President Robert W. P.aterson Vice-President Fred T.

Since then the numlxT of members has grown to about 800. Phi Delta Phi exists to heneiit the legal pro- fession by inculcating proper ideals in those who are preparing for the practice of law, and to supplement the curriculum with practical suggestions calculated to prove of benefit to the student lawyer. The Inn selects its members twice yearly from the outstanding, representative men enrolled in the College of Law who give promise of becoming of service to the state and country in the practice of law and in the promotion of legal study in all its branches. At the bi-monthly meetings the members gather for dinner, and as many alumni members as possible are brought to them so that special practical difficulties may be pointed out to the students. Each year the Inn is host to its alumni members at a luncheon given at the place and the time of the State Bar Association meeting. The last one of these luncheons was given in Omaha on December 28 and many active and alumni members were present. Along with its endeavor to raise the standards of the profession by entering upon its rolls men thoroughly imbued with the ideals of their calling, Phi Delta Phi constantly strives also to promote loyalty to the college and University by selecting men representative of all University activities.

The academic prepara- tion of a teacher pertains to his general knowledge. It consists of acquiring a knowledge of the main branches of learn- ing, such as literature, history, science, mathematics, music, art, and similar subjects. Important as is the academic training, it does not constitute the teacher ' s only preparation. Teaching is now regarded as a profession which requires technical or special preparation of those who follow it in precisely the same sense that doctors or lawyers must have special training. The professional training consists of such things as a study of educational psycho- logy, philosophy of education, methods of teaching, and an oppor- tunity to put ideas and principles into actual practice in student teaching. Teachers College of the University of Nebraska prepares students for the profession of teaching. Here one can learn to teach kindergarten-primary, elementar ' , high school, or one can specialize in any line such as commercial, home economics, normal training, English, mathematics, languages, fine arts, journalism, and so on. The professional work is given in eight departments and the academic work is carried on in eighteen different depart- ments. Lower primary education includes the work of those preparing to teach in the kindergarten, first, and second grades. The schools of Nebraska not only need classroom teachers for the elementary schools, but they need supervisors and principals. The course in elementary education offered in Teachers College is intended to fit students to fill these positions, and in addition to prepare critic teachers for training schools. Another feature of the work in this department is the four-year course offered to those students who intend to teach normal training classes in the high schrmls. Commercial arts is now a well established part of the work in Teachers College, an important branch being the training of commercial teachers for the high schools of the state. The college turns out teachers who are well qualified: they have not only studied btxiks, but they have had actual teaching experience. The co-operative spirit which exists between the Teachers College and the public schixils of Lincoln is evidenced by a successful system of cadeting. Those who are specializing in kindergarten-primary work or in elementary education assist in the grade and junior high schools, thereby gaining practical experience which is of great value to them, as well as being of service to the Lincoln schools. Students working for a Junior Certificate cadet in their sophomore year, while those working for a degree do so in their junior and senior years. The students thus come into contact with well trained teachers, and are not only able to observe but actually to put into prac- W. E. Sealock, Dean PBKe 112 ticc the working out of various methods. Because of this tr.iiniiiL; they go out into the state better quahlied in their special hne of work. With the help of the Bureau for Recommendation of Teachers hundreds of students are placed every year in schools throughout the state, and in other states of the Middle West. This bureau selects candidates according to their qualifications, experience, and ability and places them where they will be of the most service. Some students teach after completing the two-year course. However, many of these students return to finish their four-year course and secure a degree. The Teachers College gives to its gr.iduates the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Education, Bachelor of Arts in Education, or Bachelor of Fine Arts in Education, and grants to each the University Teachers Certificate, a profes- sional certificate, the equal of any certificate granted in any state of the Middle West. The summer session of the Teachers College is planned to ofi er unusual opportunities to the teachers of the state. The college is doing all in its power to aid in preparing a body of properly qualified teachers to meet the needs of the state. The possibility of securing six or twelve hours of credit makes the summer term well adapted to the professional needs of teachers. Practically the entire staff of the Teachers College is on duty for at least one term. In addition many other instructors are secured. Dunng the coming summer session Dr. Strayer and Dr. Engelhardt of Teachers College, Columbia University, will give work in school administration. These men are the leaders in their field and are known in every country in the world where schools are being improved and education is making pro- gress. The quality of instruction is thus equal to that of the regular semesters and in some depart- ments superior advantages are offered. The Teachers College High i School is also in operation during the summer session and offers an excellent opportunity for the study of supervision and the practical phases of teaching. Not only are students given training in actual teaching in the Teachers College High School, but they are also given an opportunity to do experimental work and thus develop a scientific attitude toward the problems of teaching and of education in general. In the future there will be an increased amount of this experi- mental work which will not only give an added interest to the work ordinarily done in the high school, but will prove of marked interest to superintendents and others in the state. The great increase in attendance in recent years has made it necessary to add new departments and to increase the number of courses in departments already represented, besides making provision for a superior instructional staff. During the present year the department of school administration has been organized with Dr. Henzlik as the head. New courses have been prepared and an unusual oppor- tunity offered to men and women who desire to enter the field of education as superintendents or principals. To the department of educational and mental measurements has been added educational psychology and the name of the department changed to the department of educational psychology and measurements. This work, so vital to the training of teachers, is thus being improved and made in- creasingly valuable. The members of the faculty of the Teachers College are often called to give of their time to public service, such as institute work, dedications, and high school commencement addresses. The state sup- ports the Teachers College and in turn the college gives to the state the best and most worth while of its efforts and service. By virtue of his position the teacher is the educational leader in his commvinity. But education.il leadership involves more than teaching classes. Today a teacher is an important factor in the improve- ment of the community in gen- eral. Great progress has been made in education during the past decade. More and more in- sistent has become the demand for adequately trained teacherN. The Teachers College is meet ing this demand and givi ng t the schools of Nebraska well trained teachers — teachers win have a vision of the possibilities of their profession and a :e,il to realize this vision. Pace 113 Hawson liarnioii Kindergarten Club ; :; HE Kindergarten-Primary Club was organized at the University of Nebraska in the fall of _J 1919. It IS a departmental organization and is a branch of the National Council of Primary Education. The purpose of the organization is both social and professional. Ever ' girl specializing in kindergarten-primary ' education is a member. Ever ' year the club gives one or more social functions. The " kid party " has become an annual affair. About two hundred and iifty attended the party this year. Prizes were awarded for the cleverest costumes. In De- cember the club held a joint meeting with the Primary ' Council of Lincoln, at the Bancro ft schixil. Eighty-one students entered the department this fall from other institutions, including Ober- lin. University of Colorado, Montana State Teachers College, South Dakota University, and the University of Wyoming. Officers of the organization are chosen by popular election. The president and at least one member of the advisory board must be an upper classman.

Accordingly, the Nebraska chapter was formally installed May 2 , 1923, by the national president, Ella Victoria Dobbs of the University of Missouri. Before the granting of the national charter, the organization was known as the Senior Girls ' Honorary Society of the Teachers College. The goal of the fraternity has been the same, both for the local society and the chapter of the national to promote and foster educational progress, to dignify woman ' s status in the profession of teaching, to raise standards of scholarship, and to evolve a friendly and efficient co-operation between students and faculty. Pi Lambda Theta invites women to membership upon consideration of scholarship, college activities, personality, and professional spirit. Any innovation intended for the improvement of existing educational practices receives the serious consideration of the society. At one time a study and trial of the honor system commanded liberal attendtion. Pi Lambda Theta was founded in July, 1917, by the fusion of seven charter chapters, each of which had, as its impetus, similar educational ideals. At present there are eighteen active chapters, in addition to eight composed of alumni members. Field membership is Pi Lambda Theta ' s provision for those who arc unable to maintain contact with a ch.ipter. OFFICERS President Robert.

It was formed in 1910 by the consolidation of educational organiza- tions that had been formed in Columbia University and the Universities of Indiana and Missouri. The society seeks to foster research and to render service in the field of public education. Membership is limited to senior college and graduate students in educa- tion who have obtained high academic standing and who give promise of professional leader- ship. Members of the faculty are eligible to associate membership and to participate in the activities of the organization. Nebraska (Omicron) chapter of Phi Delta Kappa was established at the University of Nebraska in 1914, the fifteenth chapter of the fraternity in order of formation. The charter members were Charles Fordyce, C. K. Morse, A. A. Reed, W. W. Stoner, V. L. Strickland, and C. W. Taylor — three faculty and three student members. The chapter has been conservative in selecting members and has had steady growth in numbers and in influence. One hundred ninety-four names have appeared upon the chapter roll. The members are widely scattered, though the great majority have at some time been engaged in educational work in Nebraska. The list includes ninety superintendents of city schools; forty-two instructors in universities, colleges, and normal schools; fifteen principals of high schfKils; twelve teachers in high schools and eight executive officers in higher educa- tional institutions.

Rosenlof Sponsor Dean W. E. Sealock Page 117 College of Engineering (By O. J. Ferguson, Dean) CHE major industry of Nebraska is agrieulture and its diversified activities will remain dominant in our state. Frequently the importance of agriculture is presumed to imply that other occupations are relatively in- considerahlc. A little reflection, however, serves to put this matter in its true light and we discern that the intrinsic value to us of other occupations is also very great. Engineering is one of these significant elements in the life of Nebraska. In some of its aspects it is closely asso- ciated with agriculture, which is developing more and more of engineering content. Farm machinery ' and power devices, farm drainage, management of large farms with their in- creasing dependence upon machinery, all point toward suit- able occupations for men with engineering ability and train- ing. Large scale transportation, railway or highway, is a great problem in a state like ours. Our varied staple products must be exchanged for our much needed supplies of ma- terials and goods from without our borders. This transac- tion involves further development of our public carrier sys- tems and our highways. Several million dollars will be spent on highways alone during the next biennium. It may be wisely spent or injudiciously dissipated with results having far from the maximum value. Great engineering skill is required to see that the work is done well and economically. At present a large part of our raw products is carried elsewhere for manufacturing processes and refinements. Our factories, great as they are in some particular lines, such as sugar, cream- ery products, flour, meat products, brick and tile, still fail to take full advantage of Nebraska ' s opportunities to prepare manufactured articles for sale and distribution. Instead of this, we pass much of our material on for others to work into usable forms. Here, again, we must im- prove our practic e by putting our materials through the refining processes of manufacturing and then marketing them in more valuable form. Such developments await the application of engineering knowledge. The proper construction of buildings, bridges and other structures is also an engineering job. The planning of cities is another. In neither of these particulars has Nebraska very clearly realised its needs, though recognition i.s now developing. Why should we not have school houses O. Ferguson Page 118 and court houses which do not look like t.ictoncs or cracker bo es? Why should not our dwell- ings have individuality and our bridges architectural appeal? Our new capitol sets a pace that It will he difficult to keep, and yet, in its effective joining of beauty and grandeur with utility, it IS an indication of possibilities and a prediction of attainment. Communication systems, the results of engineering progress, are fast reaching into every urban and rural residence, and business would be at a standstill without their proper maintenance. It is these systems, coupled with modern transportation, which have shrunk the world during the last half century from a sphere one hundred days in circumference to a mere neighborhood. The universality of power distribution is recognized as one of the problems of today. It is only partly solved so far as our rural districts are concerned. Electricity makes its accomplish- ment possible and it remains for the engineer to work out the economics of the process. Our small towns have their lighting systems and their water works and they may well look forward to a time when small factories will give employment to their citizens, when power for the opera- tion becomes available. There is even now a recognized tendency toward development away from the present practice of increasing the size of factory plants and toward the establishment of numerous, scattered, small units. The massing of industry into large scale production may give place to decentralization. Certainly, many of our communities can take advantage of this course of events. Water supply, sanitary engineering, sewage disposal all relate to public needs and public health and are daily becoming more important as our population increases, our villages grow, and our standards of living advance. The responsibility which modern civilization puts upon the engineer demands one hundred per cent of his efforts. These great duties and opportunities are ever ' where present and the engineer of Nebraska faces them every day. Our engineering students, forty per cent of whom remain in the state, are needed in the solution of Nebraska ' s problem and Nebraska may con- fidently look to them for the development of its engineering progress and the establishment r,{ reliable engineering practices. ifii Pasc 119 n Pi i 1 lixbt-rls Soiilt Custalsnn Gerber Sandstrvim Yoder Edgerton Pelz Marshall Slayniaker Bryan Caster Reed Nies Trivlcy Lammli Rees Turnbull Beckord Schoenbeck Olson Miille Edison O.H.McKenty G.McKenty Soi enson Phelps Madsen Cutler Pollard Soul h well M White Nebraska Engineering Society y - HE Nebraska Engineering Society was formally established in February, 1924. Before this V,_ V time several organizations similar to this society had appeared on the campus but none of them were satisfactory. Notable among these were the American Association of Engineers, a national organization of professionals incorporating student chapters at colleges throughout the country, and The Engineering Society, a local group founded at Nebraska in 1900. A committee appointed by the American Association of Engineers started work in 1920 on a local society. In February, 1924, the plans were completed and formally adopted by the local student members of the A. A. E. It was decided that the name of the new organization should be The Nebraska Engineering Society, and the official publication, The J ebras}{a Blue Print. Unlike other campus publications the Blue Prnit staff is elected by the society, rather than appointed by the Publications Board. The principle object of the society is to unite the different departments of the College of Engineering. Smokers, dances, and athletic meets are held each year and the climax of the activities is Engineers ' Week, which is sponsored by the society each spring as a means of show- ing the public and the students from the other colleges the work and equipment of the college. Engineers ' Week is one of the big events at Nebraska. Engineers, prominent in the engineering world t(KJay, come here at this time from all parts of the country to give lectures to interested groups of alumni and students of the college. Many graduates return to Lincoln .md are shown the developments and progress made since they left school. The affair lasts for five days and Page 120 TT Hai-Uiiian C;c-mmel H.iwe Shoemaker Kiche I ' ' iliii|)i Griess Cuulson Deeter Salsbiiry Harris Kchindler Jolley Jolley Sjogren Brown Campbell Johnston Moseman Hobson Wickham Deresseau Andrews .Millscm Boucher Mace Davison Collins Nebraska Engineering Society during this time nothing is left undone in the way of exhibits and amusements. Engineers ' Night, probably the most important event of the week, is very interesting. Every machine in the college is in operation and students are on hand to give explanations. Throughout the past school year the N. E. S. has been very active. During the week of April 22-26, 1924, it presented Engineers ' Week, with several convocations, a parade. Engineers " Night, field day, a banquet, and a dance. Early in the fall the society held a barbecue on the Agricultural campus as a means of getting acquainted with the new engineering freshmen. The organization has engaged in many other minor activities at different times throughout the year. Membership in the Nebraska Engineering Society during the college year of 1924-25 was 250. Ninety-two of these are in the electrical department, thirty-two in the mechanical, seventy- four in the civil, four in the agricultural, seventeen in the architectural, and thirteen in the chemical. By means of this representation and the various activities which it has sponsored, the society has created and fixed a bond of fellowship among the engineering students of Nebraska.

As part of the entertainment for them, the delegates attended the Illinois-Nebraska football game in a body. The three requirements for eligibility to membership in Sigma Tau are: sociability, practicability, and scholarship. These are all qualities which a successful engineer must possess. Statistics show that a larger per cent of Sigma Tau ' s members are successful in their chosen line of work than are the members of those societies which base their member- ship on scholarship alone. Of itself, Sigma Tau engages in but few activities, but it is active in the support of all engineering affairs, such as Engineers ' Week, acting somewhat as an advisory body for all of the engineering societies. The annual initiation and initiator ' banquet were held in the Lincoln Hotel, Decem- ber 6. The principal speaker was the national president. Prof. J. B. Davidson, of Iowa State College, a Nebraska alumnus and one of the founders of the fraternity. The picture presented this year to the Nebraska " Hall of Fame " in the Mechanical Engineering building was that of the electrical wizard, the late Dr. Charles P. Steinmet:.

Soon afteru ' ard they affiliated with the American Society of Engineers, which is the largest of all national engineering organizations. The purpose of the organisation is to keep abreast of the times in regard to current engineering principles and improvements. The aims of A. S. M. E. are to render the maximum of service to the college through unity of action, to give engineers a more potent voice in public affairs, and to secure greater recognition of the services of the engineer. The advantages of membership are many. Graduates are assisted m obtaining posi- tions, engineering publications are offered to students at reduced rates, prizes are offered for technical papers prepared by student members, and students are represented ,it the society ' s annual national meeting. The activities of the organization are not confined to lectures on engineering, but are varied occasionally with open m eetings and smokers where all the mechanical engineers get together. The last meeting of the year is a farewell banquet for the graduating seniors. OFFICERS Honorary President Prof. W. L. DeB.xufre President E. T. GuST. FSON Vice-President W. W. Arnold Secretary S. E.

This number is necessarily small due to the recent development of the field of chemical engmeering. At the present time there are less than thirty of these students enrolled in the University. The purpose of the organization is to promote the interests of chemical engineering in the University, to provide a means of becoming better acquainted with others who are doing the same type of work, and to act as an adjunct to the Nebraska Engineering Society m the promotion of the profession as a whole. Regular meetings are held throughout the schcxil year. Topics of general interest to engineers, hut more particularly to chemical engineers, are discussed. An occasional social meeting is also held. These usually take the form of smokers held at the home of some town member. The society represents the chemical department in the events of Engineers " Week. On Engineers " Night it assumes the responsibility for the exhibits in the Chemistry build- ing. All laboratories are open to inspection under the supervision of members and lectures are given, illustrated by some of the more spectacular reactions of chemistry. The future of chemical engineering is not one of conjecture, but one of reality. The world is leaning more on the chemist. Thus the application of his laboratory discoveries to industrial life becomes highly important. This is the job for the chemical engineer. It is still a comparatively new job but one that is constantly growing. OFFICERS President Herbert H. Ulrich Vice-Pre.sident P. UL W. Soherberg Secretarv-Treasure ... Rex M.

The chief aims of the society are to promote fellowship among the students, encourage scholarship, and sponsor all activities of the civil engineering department, such as smokers, social events, speakers for convocations, and exhibits for Engineers " Night. Regular meet- ings are held at least once a month. It is usually arranged to have some prominent civil engineer speak. An event of unusual interest was the " Round Up " breakfast at Antelope Park early in the fall. Its main purpose was to get acquainted with the new men and make them feel at home. A smoker was given by the society shortly after Christmas vacation and proved to be a decided success. OFFICERS Presidevit Willard J. Tirnbull Vice-President DoNALD P. Roberts Secretary Donald H.

The national organization is composed of both college and profe ' ssional men. The student branch of the society was organized at the University of Nebraska in the fall of 1913. The membership is composed of students who have six hours credit in agricultural engineering. One afternoon last fall the society visited some of the well-equipped farms in the vicinity of Lincoln. That evening the men went to Denton, where a demonstration in the adjustment of many farm implements was given before an audience of farmers from that neighborhood. Members of the society have charge of the floats from the department which are in the Farmers " Fair parade and in the Engineers " parade. They assisted in showing four hundred Omaha Technical High School students through the Agricultural Engineering building and ex- plaining to them the work conducted in each department. The society held open house during Organized Agriculture Week for the farmers who came to participate in the activities of the week. At times projects of agricultural engineering interest are visited in order to give the students knowledge of practical application of their studies. Monthly meetings are held regularly. A contest is sponsored during the year, the winner of which is to represent the local branch at the national convention. Last June the society enter- tained the national convention in Lincoln. at OFFICERS First Semester Second Semester Orve K.

Lyman, Dean HE drui; store h;is hecome so commnn tlwl the layman and V _ V the professional man alike fail to appreciate the important part it plays in the community life. But when the drug store ceases to exist, the average citizen realizes the loss to the community. Recently just such a situation came about in a small Kansas town located in a rich agricultural country. The local druggist was in poor health. The store building and part of the drug stock were damaged by fire. The remainder of the stock was to be removed to another town. Not until the packing was begun did the townspeople realize that the village would soon be without ■I drug store. As the packing proceeded every passerby asked, " How can the village get along without a drug store? " It was ,1 question which patron was more concerned — the town loafer who insisted that a dozen boxes be opened so that he could get a Ixix of aspirin to relieve an incipient cold, or the village banker who declared the loss of the store was a real blow to the business and social life of the community. So keenly did the banker feel the loss that immediately he purchased the lot upon which the store had stood for twenty years. He tore down the damaged building and is erecting a new brick structure which will be oc- cupied by a drug company. His own statement is that he could have invested his money where it would have given him a larger financial return, but he considered it for the welfare of the town that a drug store should occupy the most important corner. In his mind the service feature of the drug store was the most important feature, and next to the church ,ind the school, it was the most import- ant center of village life and activity. We have come to kxik upon the drug store as an all-purpose store. Someone who has recently made a study of the subject finds that the average store carries about 10,000 different sorts of articles. Many of these are foreign to the drug line; yet the layman does not realize that more drugs and chemi- cals are used by intelligent people today than ever before in the history of the world. Formerly, the druggist was thought of as the " handmaid " of the physician. It is true that the compounding of a prescription is an important part of the druggist ' s work — in fact more important than ever, because, contrary to the popular belief, more medicines are being taken today. The doctor now has at his command hundreds of valuable drugs and biological products that were unknown a generation ago. At the same time dentistry and veterinary knowledge have reached a high stage of development, and this has greatly increased the work of the scientific druggist. But the largest field has been opened up in agriculture, horticulture, and industrial science. With the development of scientific agriculture and horticulture it has become imperative, if more crops are to be raised, to treat seeds and plants with chemicals in order to destroy pests. Even in the shipping of grain and livestock it is necessary to fumigate to prevent the action and spread of parasites and Page 130 disease. Even the protection of forests has become a pharmacist ' s prolMem. For instance, for a num- ber of years the chestnut trees of the Appalachi.ui mountains have been threatened by various parasites; the entire cotton crop suffers from the bo ' .l weevil. Finally, there has been placed upon the pharmacist by the j overnment of the United States responsibility for the distribution of alcohol and narcotics for legitimate uses. The most stringent laws ever passed are those that apply to the sale of these drugs, which are essential in medicine, in the arts, and in certain industries, but which are the most dangerous of all drugs when they are placed in the wrong hands. It is evident, then, that the druggist must receive increasingly better training. The service which the College of Pharmacy performs for the State of Nebraska is that of training druggists such that ever ' community will have a better pharmaceutical service.

Its chief object is to promote good-fellowship among the students in the College of Pharmacy. This society provides means of establishing acquaint- ances and friendships for all pharmacy students At first the Pharmaceutical Society was concerned solely with pharmaceutical affairs. Month- ly meetings and occasional picnics or similar social functions proved sufficient for the students at that time. This was because of the fact that the college was young and the students were few in number. But as the college grew the .students felt a desire to take an active part in student affairs, as well as pharmaceuical activities. In 191? the first year book of the College of Pharmacy was published and in the same year the pharmaceutical Society took part in University Night celebration, the skit which they presented winning second place. The following year the skit of the Pharmaceutical Society won first place, but since then because of lack of interest in dramatics the Pharmaceutical Society has not taken part in the University Night performances. In 1914 Pharmacy Week was introduced by the Pharmaceutical Society under the leadc- ship of Martin Chitick, who is now a professor of pharmacy at the University of Minnesota. During Pharmacy Week it has been the custom to have a banquet, hold open house, and to give a special convocation at which some leading pharmaceutical educator or someone interested in pharmacy makes an address. It has also been customarj ' to hold a college picnic. In 1921 the efforts of the Pharmaceutical Society had been concentrated upon making Pharmacy Week, and especially Pharmacy Night, when open house is held, a great success. The great interest shown by the public in the training and workg of the pharmacist was a revelation to the students and the work and co-operation necessary for the success of the exhibits has served to knit the members of the college more closely together and has developed a sense of loyalty to the college and an " esprit de corps " that is truely remarkable. The primary purpose of the Pharmacy Night exhibit is to acquaint the public in general with the kind of instruction and training required in the practice of pharmacy. It has been felt that there has always been a gulf between the layman and the pharmacist due partly to the lack Page 132 K MacMillan K.

Johnson Ward Lewton Koehler Oleinik Fernow Stewart Percival -FVl Pharmaceutical Society of understanding on the part of the layman, of the scientific nature of the work of the pharmacist. The tendency in pharmaceutical legislation and education has been to raise the standards of the profession and it is believed that before pharmacy can take its proper place as a profession in the eyes of the public, a closer relationship between the pharmacist and his patrons must be established. Pharmacy Week is the one big event of the year in which every student of the pharmacy college takes great pride in having a hand. It is carried out solely by the students of the college, who elect a general chairman to plan all of the events and take charge of things in general. The main events of the week are Convocation, and the Banquet. Convocation is held the earlier part of the week and consists of various talks from people who are interested in the ad- vancement of pharmacy. The chief purpose of the Convocation is to bring the students of the college in closer relation with each other and to impress upon the new men the important part which the pharmacist plays in his community. Pharmacy Night is probably the biggest event of the week. At this time the building is thrown open to the public with the idea of letting the layman see just what the pharmacist really is and of what his v fork consists. There are exhibits of the various drugs used in medicine and illustrations of how they are collected and prepared by the pharmacist. If the effects of the Pharmaceutical Society have contributed, even in a small measure, toward this end the organisation will feel amply repaid for their endeavors in this connection. During the war the Pharmaceutical Society suffered the same cessation of activities that other societies did. Since the war the Pharmaceutical Society has grown in numbers and it is felt that each year has seen some advancement over the preceding one. At present the Pharmaceutical Society is making plans for the publishing of a monthly journal. The purpose of this journal will be to provide a means of communication between pharmacists in this state, to keep the pharmacists in close contact with national and local prob- lems and to increase the influence of the University of Nebraska and the College ot Pharmacy in the practice of pharmacy in this state.

Elby, Antonius A. Larson, Thomas J. Laners, Raymond Baur, Elmer M. Hansen, William G. Wallace, and Paul M. Rogers. The above group of students, realizing the necessity o( a professional pharmaceutical fra- ternity at Nebraska, formed in 1911 a local, naming it Alpha Sigma Rho, and in 1912 secured a charter from Phi Delta Chi. Phi Delta Chi is the oldest national pharmaceutical fraternity in existence, having been founded at the Lhiiversity of Michigan, November 2, 1883. Recognition of the necessity of, and the mutual benefits to be derived from an organization devoted to the sciences of pharmacy and chemistry, a careful investigation into, and a free dis- cussion of subjects relative to the same, are the principles upon which Phi Delta Chi was founded, having with it an aim to advance the sciences of pharmacy and chemistrj and to foster and pro- mote a fraternal spirit among its members. Originally Phi Delta Chi barred from its membership those affiliated with academic fraterni- ties, but at the last conclave, held at Indianapolis during February, 1925, this ban was lifted and membership is now secured upon a scholarship and professional basis from the college enrollment of men. There are twenty-seven active chapters in the fraternity located only at schools of pharmacy that are members of the American Conference of Pharmaceutical Faculties. The fraternity publishes a quarterly known as the Communicator. The pledge pin is a red triangle with gold border. The pin is a pearl jeweled triangle with ruby points displaying the Greek letters of Phi Delta Chi. OFFICERS President H. RRY Rife Vice-President RiCH. RD L. Curran Secretary Will.srd R.

It was nationalized at the College of Pharmacy at the University of Minnesota, the same year that it was installed at Nebraska, by a group of pharmacy students under the leadership of Miss Zada M. Cooper. Miss Cooper is at the present time; a member of the faculty of the College of Pharmacy at the University of Iowa. The aim of the founders in organizing a professional sorority among pharmacy students may be said to have been three- fold: first, to co-operate with college authorities in maintaining high scholastic standards; second, to promote good fellowship among the students of the college; and third, to provide a means by which pharmacy, as a profession for women, might be made more attractive. From a local organization Kappa Epsilon has grown to be a national sorority with chapters in several of the larger universities of the United States. Although the Nebraska chapter is young, it has become a factor in the life and spirit of the college. Eligibility for mx mhership, in addition to high scholastic standards, includes general initia- tive in work and character. The associate members arc the wives of the professors in the College of Pharmacy and other women who are interested in the activities and progress of pharmacy. One of the outstanding n.itional functions is the celebration of Founders " Day by each chapter. The Nebraska chapter annually fulfills this requirement with a banquet given in honor of Its founder, Miss Zada M. C(X)per.

Few at- tempts were made to improve the quality of the drug plants growing in the native habitats. Their cultivation was not undertaken with any purpose of improving quality or increasing pro- duction. Ignorant, wasteful, and destructive methods were used by drug collectors and the supply was fast becoming exhausted. The world war came and the most important drug plants were declared contraband of war and America was left helpless, with the source of supply cut off. We then realized that a drug plant in- dustry must be developed in this country. We must, at all times, have a source of supply within our own borders. To develop such an industry on a scientific basis it was necessary to establish experimental drug plant gardens. Not only must drug plants be produced in quantity, but the quality and the amount of active principles v. ' ithin the plant must be increased. The whole industry must also be placed on a paying basis. In order to solve these problems the United States government, through the Department of Agriculture, established a number of experimental gardens throughout the country. The leading state universities and other institutions teaching pharmacy have d ine likewise. The garden at the University of Nebraska is one of the pioneer gardens and every year since its establishment the Department of Agriculture has co-operated in certain experiments. It is evident that such a garden is a necessary part of the equipment of any institution teaching pharmacy, as it is a laboratory which is used not only in the study of drug plant cultivation but also in the study of pharmacology and physiological standardization. Past- 139 9i College of Dentistry C G. A. Grubb, Dean HE yrowlh of the Collcije of Dentistry, like the growth of iinything else, eunnot he considered entirely upon its numerical advancement. The environment under which It grew must he considered. Its numerical growth will depend upon its origin, its handicaps, its aims, its goaU, Its relation to the community, its opportunity for service, lor opportunity tor reward, and its opportunity for mental training. In fact, if we study its growth from a numerical standpoint only, we are doomed to disappointment. The truth is that it has done well to hold its ov -n in the im- mediate past eight years, because two years has been added to the curriculum since 1917. Its growth can best be measured by its opportunity for mental training and its op- portunity for better service to the people of the state. Dentistry, as it is practiced today, is the culmination re- sult of approximately one hundred twenty-five years growth. It is the youngest of the professions by many centuries. Ancient history and relics record a form of dentistry which has become a lost art. Modern dentistry had its origin a little over a century ago, as tOoth pullers in a barber shop. Dentistry as it is today is distinctly an American evolution and has reached its highest point in this country. The recognition of dentistry as a health service has come since nineteen hundred. Not being awarded a place in the health service program in its infancy, it was compelled to develop under its own tutelage. This means they came into existence as private schixils. Those interested were not able to endow them. University ideals were absent. This had its effect upon the curriculum, and it m turn had its effect upon the type of student attracted to it. Up to the inaugural of the twentieth centun, ' the practice of dentistry was considered a highly specialized mechanical art. It is only in the last ten years that the present significance of the medical aspect of dentistry has been given serious consideration. It was a three-year course until 1917, at Vv ' hich tune it went to a tour-year basis. In 1921 a year of pre-dental work of college grade was added. The course is now attracting students with both the mechanical and medical type of mind. This medical advancement has also had its effect upon the mechanical development. It has come to be fully reeognined that the mechani- cal aspect affects its medical aspect. Therefore, this appreciation of the medical aspect has brought, and will undoubtedly bring in the future, distinctive changes in the mechanical side for better health considerations. Dentistry is not a fixed science. Its evolution has been mo.st marked the last twenty-live years, especially the last ten. What form of evolution will the next quarter of a century take? What v. ' ill that of the next decade take? It is a very interesting question and a very highly important one, both to the dentist and the recipient of his services. In the consideration of the growth of dentistry, the question Wis up: " Do we wish more service or do we wish a higher type of service? " " If the latter half of this couplet is to be our Page 1-10 answer that higher type must be one ot prevention. Whenever the eollege is housed in its own quarters, a new and modern huilding on the campus, it will render preventive service in a larger and better way. Dentistry is reaehinu for the door to the prevention of dental ills. There are but tw-o limitations to a student ' s or practitioner ' s progress in this search. These are his financial and mental ability to carry on research in any one of the several problems before the profession. It is a problem worthy of the best minds. The Dental Clinic offers dental services to the University student body at a nominal fee. Many students each year are served in this way. This service will become greater when we are housed in our own quarters on the campus. The col lege serves a regional need. Ninety-six and a half per cent of its graduates since 1918, at which time it became an integral part of the University, have located and are practicing in the State of Nebraska. They arc thus returning that service they owe to the state. This service will continue to grow in proportion to the measure in which the dental profession is able to solve the problem of prevention of dental ills. Dtntiitry Ldbv atury Pago 141 Dental Student Association ' HE Dent.il Student Association was organized in 1921. Since that time the organization has grown until it includes all the students in the College of Dentistry. The primary purpose of the association is to foster better fellow- ship between the students in the College of Dentistry. The members have an oppor- tunity to become better acquainted. This is especially true of the under-classmen with the upperclassmen. The association also seeks to develop its members in a non-professional way. At its meetings topics of interest to all the members are studied and discussed. The faculty, through this association, has an avenue of approach to the student body which is very valuable. Socially, the association has been very active, sponsoring the All-Dent dance and several other social functions. The success with which the association has met is apparent in the fine group spirit which has been bmlt up wtihin the college and which is unexcelled anywhere on the campus. The activities on the campus have been somewhat limited, due to the fact that the college is some distance removed from the other colleges. However, it is the sincere hope and desire of the association to have our college moved in the near future to a new building on the campus. PaKe 142 Miner DeFurd Khinehart Klint Cuts G. Albrecht H.

LeRossignol " NIVERSITY schools of business are comparatively new in the educational system of the United States. The first was the Wharton Sch(xil of Finance and Commerce of the University of Pennsylvania, founded in 1881. For twenty years thereafter, the more conservative universi- ties held back from this innovation, but in 1900 New York Uni- versity and Dartmouth College again broke the ice. Since then many others have followed. At the present time there is scarcely an important university in the country that has not its college or school of business, or a department doing practically the same work. The list is a notable one, including such universities as Penn- sylvania, New York, Dartmouth, Harvard, Columbia, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, North- western, Chicago, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Washington, Oklahoma, Te.xas, Tulane, California, Oregon, and many others. The fact that all our state universities have entered this tield IS significant, showing that both ta.xpayers and university authori- ties believe that young men and women looking toward a business career need special training for their life work; that the business world needs people who have had such preparation; and that theory and practice, science and art, must work together to produce the best results in business as in every other sphere of human thought and action. Formerly, there were only three " learned professions, " so every university had four faculties: the faculty of philosophy or liberal arts and the three professional faculties of theology, law, and medicine. But now we have many professions, each with its bcxly of knowledge. Therefore, in addi- tion to the ancient and honorable four, we now have schools and colleges of education, engineering, pharmacy, dentistry, the fine arts, agriculture, journalism, and business. In other words, the university is coming to epitomize and reflect the whole life of the people. There was a time when clergymen, lawyers and physicians could see little good in such sch(xils, for the idea was prevalent that all the professions could best be studied by novices under the supervision of e. perienced practitioners But times have changed and now cadets in all of these lines attend the schools, because it is there that they can best get the scientific training which is the basis of successful practice. The work of such schcxils is theoretical, as well as practical; but a man who has a foundation of science and sound theory can easily learn practical details, whereas the mere practitioner can never ma.ster the theory that he needs. And so it is in the practice of business. Most of our successful business men have entered their chosen field by the gate of apprenticeship, but in view of the rapid changes which are continually going on, there is need of a new kind of training. PaKc 148 This is not to depreciate the achievement of the business men of past generations, hut rather to recognize and commemorate them. They have accumulated a vast body of valuable knowledge which IS being worked over, sifted, and arranged in such a way that it can be taught to the younger genera- tion, so that they may begin where their fathers left off. " ■TT Formerly, such knowledge was handed down by word of mouth, but now it is assembled, digested, ?.] and published in books, magazines, and reports. But it is so vast m volume that active business men a cannot keep up with it. It must, therefore, be presented by experienced teachers to the student in his ' early years. 3 The College ot Business Administration, then, is rendering a service to the state hy training its H young men and women for their future work. And although some may become privates, rather than officers, in the industrial army, there can be no question but that all will help to carry on the business of the state and the nation better than ever before. Efficiency is the securing of a maximum return at a minimum of cost. To this end, business re- search will contribute in a marked degree and our college has made a g(xid beginning along this line. Already we have published ten numbers of The 7 ehras}{a Studies m Busviess, giving the results of investigations into such subjects as stock turnover, control of retail credits, operating expenses, and financial statements in retail stores, and as many more reports on other phases of business are in course of preparation. In this way the college is carrying on a work similar to that ot the H.irvard Bureau of Business Research and other organizations, which has been recognized by business men as one of the most promising developments of recent times. Moreover, because of the central location of the University of Nebraska, the results obtained here will be of unusual significance as applying, with slight modifica- tion, to conditions throughout the Middle West. Of course, in carrying on its work of teaching and research, the college does a special service tn the students by giving them both general and specific training for their future vocations. And yet, the curnculum of the college is not narrowly vocational. On the contrary, it requires a broad cultural training through the study of language, mathematics, and science, while laying much stress on political science, history, sociology, and economics, which have been well called the " new humanities. " Through such training we are trying to develop a business man of a high type, who shall be dili- gent in business and yet have a scholarly attitude toward his work, a broad view of the economic world, and an ambition to contribute toward the wealth and welfare of the state as a whole. The college is also doing good work in the way of inculcating higher standards of business ethics. Business is based on the principle of fair exchange of goods and services and, as such, is fundamentally ethical in character. As this basic principle of service for service is more clearly recognized, there will be less striving for profit at the expense of service, for it will be generally understood that " he profits most who serves best. " There is, of course, a higher principle than this — that virtue is its own reward and that business men should place service first and take what profit or loss may come without undue satisfaction or com- plaint. Many pastors, physicians, teachers, and others thus cultivate the true professional spirit, plac- ing the welfare of their flock, their pupils, and their patients before their own, thinking much of the service which they render and little of their own remuneration. This spirit is growing in the business world and we believe that our graduates will do much to make it spread. If so, the investment which the citizens of Nebraska have made in the C.ollege ot Business Adm ' nistration will be returned to them a hundredfold.

Broun University Commercial Club t HE University Commercial Club was organised shortly after the College of V,_ V Business Administration was founded. The club was organized to secure united, co-operative action among the stude nts of the college, to aid in the development of a true college spirit that would serve as the basis for the formation of lasting friendships, and to help students get some contact with the practical business world. The club is a truly democratic organization, open to any Bizad student who wishes to join. Its membership is now several hundred. The club attempts to fill somewhat the same place in school life that the commerci.il club fills in the business community. It binds the individuals and the numerous smaller organizations of the college together for the securing of common ends. In accomplishing its purposes the club sponsors many important activities. The two outstanding ones are the Bizad banquet and Bizad Day. Both of these events are for all students in the College of Business Administration. Another all-Bizad activity that the club sponsors is the holding of Bizad convocations. The purpose of all these events is to unite the student body, and to instill it with a spirit of loyalty and friendliness. In meeting its other purpose of providing a contact with the business world the club holds occasional meetings and dinner? at which business men are the speakers. These men are able to give the students a business man ' s view of the field of business activity. They present a sort of introduction to the ditferent lines of business thit one may enter. Meetings of this sort serve to show the student the need of securing and maintaining a proper balance between the theoretical and the practical. In all of Its activities the club has met its purposee so well that it has grown to a place of real influence and importance in the college.

Any woman enrolled in the College of Business Administration or in the Teachers College who is taking business ad- ministration subjects is eligible for membership. The club is managed by an executive board composed of the officers of the club and the chairmen of standing committees. There are six standing committees — membership, program, publicity, entertainment, finance, information, and social service. The membership of the club has grown from some dozen or so charter members to eighty The primary purpose of the club — to bring women of the same vocational interests into closer contact and intimacy — is being kept constantly in sight. The club is in touch with the women ' s business clubs of Lincoln and the state and has had helpful addresses from officers of these clubs and from other women who are actually in the business world. The social service department of the Girls ' Commercial Club is just developing, but much CTOod is expected to result from it. Some vocational experiments have been made by members of the club. For example, two active members worked in the summer of 1924 in the industrial center of Chicago, living the life and experiencing the difficulties of the ordinary shop-girl. From such experiences members have come to a better understanding of the machinery of business, the hardships which the woman vv-orker faces, and the problems which confront the business world in general.

In 1905 the name was changed to Alpha Kappa Psi. The fraternity fosters scientific research in the field of com- merce, accounts, and finance, and attempts to build up higher standards of business ethics. It is both honorary ' and professional in character, for a student must have an average of over seventy- five per cent m his university work to be eligible for membership. Membership is also based upon participation in campus activities, general initiative, and interest in the activities of the College of Business Administration. The chapters of Alpha Kappa Psi, of which there are now forty-two, are located in the lead- ing colleges and universities of the country where courses are offered leading to degrees in com- mercial sciences. Through the efforts of Professor O. R. Martin, of the economics department, Zeta chapter was installed at Nebraska in May, 1914. The fraternity has seven alumni chapters located in the larger cities. Dean Everett W. Lord of Boston University is at present head of the national organization and Dwight Bedell of Zeta chapter holds the ofiice of grand secretar ' - treasurer. TJie Diary, an official quarterly magazine, is published by the national offices. The Miss iuri valley district convention of the fraternity was held in Lincoln in October, 1924. Alpha Kappa Psi is endeavoring to build up the spirit of the College of Business Administra- tion and to support the work of the University Commercial Club, " Bizad " day, the college holi- day, and the annual " Bizad " banquet. Several Alpha Kappa Psi men are the holders of scholar- ships given for work in the Bureau of Economic Research. Monthly dinners are held during the year and the annual banquet for alumni and active members is given in the spring during Round-up Week. OFFICERS President Willard LJsher Vice-President.... M.

The rapid growth of the College of Business Administration had brought the need of an organization of this kind to augment and supplement the work of the organizations already existing in the college. Accordingly, a number of students in the college, interested in its welfare, organized and petitioned Delta Sigma Pi. Members are chosen upon the basis of scholarship and general college activities. The fraternity is particularly interested in raising and upholding scholarship standards. To stimulate interest and effort in this direction the fraternity offers each year the Delta Sigma Pi key. The key has been in other colleges one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a student of economics. This year a key was given for the first time at Nebraska. Its award was made upon recommendation of Dean LeRossignol. Delta Sigma Pi is an international commerce fraternity organized for the furtherance of scientific study and research in the field of economics and commerce and for the building up of a higher standard of commercial ethics. The fraternity publishes a quarterly magazine called the Dtltasig, at the national offices in Chicago. The chapter sent as its delegate to the 1924 congress of chapters at Chicago its present president, Bennet Martin, who brought back many suggestions for extension of the chapter activities. Delta Sigma Pi was organized at New York University in 1907. There are at present about thirty-five chapters. OFFICERS President Bennet M. RTIN Vice-President Wilber K. Sw.anton Secretary I. J.

Alpha Gamma Pi, at Columbia, and Phi Sigma Chi, at the University of Washington, joined Gamma Epsilon Pi and tixik its name and pin. The sorority now has .seventeen active and six alumnae chapters. Active chapters are composed of junior and senior women in the college of commerce or business administra- tion who rank high in scholarship. Mu chapter was installed in the University of Nebraska in the spring of 192?. Be- cause of restrictions on membership only three new members were chosen this year.

Larrivee - HE Campus Studio, where the photographic work of l ) the University is done, is a combination ot a modern commercial and portrait studio. It began operations on its present extensive scale in the autumn of 192 J. The work of the studio is carried on under the direction of Mr. A. F. Larrivee. Pictures are taken at the studio of any- thing which is of interest and value to the state or to the University. Not only are group pictures and portraits taken but also exterior photographs about the University and of interesting events which take place in the academic year. These pictures are furnished to the student publications, and newspapers throughout the state, and to faculty members, at cost. The equipment of the studio is ample enough to cope with any problem m photography which may present itself. There is a Belle-Howell camera for the taking of moving pictures. For use in making still pictures the studio has cameras which will make prints ranging in size from three by four inches to eleven by fourteen inches. To make pic- tures even larger than this, the studio is equipped with a $7iO projection machine which is capable of enlarging pic- tures to a size six feet long and four feet wide. The cameras owned by the studio include several ot the Graflex type which are used in taking pictures of moving objects. In all of these cameras the best lenses that can be bought are used. The studio als 5 owns an electric drying machine which dries photographs in three minutes. In the operating room of the studio, where the portraits and the group pictures are taken, there is equipment which compares favorably with any studio in the country. This year a new velvet curtain for a background and some new furniture was provided for this room. Cooper- Hewitt mercury tubes — the same kind that are found in moving picture studios — are used in the taking of portraits. There are also several large spot and flood lights equipped with 1500 watt globes, so that pictures may be taken at night as well as in the day. Two dressing rooms have been built in this department of the studio for the convenience of persons who are to be in group pictures or sit for portraits. Other rooms in the studio include one for developing the moving pictures, one where the moving pictures are print- ed, and one in which the still pictures are printed and developed. All of the films, both moving and still, are stored in a fire- proof vault in the studio. The fact that all of the group pictures for the 1924 and the 1925 Com huskier were made in the Campus studio is evidence of the magnitude and the quality of the work it is capable of doing. Page 159 Graduate College G ' HE Graduate College offers several hundred courses carryint; credit towards advanced degrees. From this college one may he graduated as a Master of Arts, or of Science, or as a Doctor of Philosophy, or as Engineer. Many graduates, on receiving their hachelor ' s degree, feel the need of further study in some specialty, and con- tinue their work, either with or without reference to an advanced degree. Other graduates, on competing for the positions which they hope to fill, discover that they are still deficient from one to four semesters of standard preparation. The Graduate College exists primarily to supply advanced instruction of this kind. Some of the teachers in our accredited schools hold the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. A considerable num- ber have taken the degree of Master of Arts. The high school teacher of mathematics often finds that he needs to know something of the higher theory of his subject. The teacher of history finds it important to be acquainted personally with the process of research. The instructor in Greek, Latin, German, French, or English, will have in mind to know something of the histor ' and philosophy of the language which he teaches. The teacher ot composi- tion, to strengthen his confidence in his critical judgments, will generally desire to study under a master who has written approvabiy for the public. The students intending ultimately to practice medicine will commonly plan to be broadly trained in science. The young man who has invested in a bachelor ' s degree in preparation for the study of law will probably wish to work in |-H)litical science and economics. The student of theology will desire to know something of applied psycho- logy, with the historj ' of institutions and society. Secondary teachers generally will wish to study experimental psychology and the history of education. Many students of the three " learned " professions will forsee the importance of giving some attention to philosophy. And especially, in present times, when the trend of high sch x)l training is strongly towards the various branches of engineering, the physics teacher will feel the need of broad preparation in applied mechanics, electricity, and mathematics. The Graduate College of the University of Nebraska w.is founded to serve the men .md women of the state, inexpensively and conveniently, in ail these needs, and is open to students holding diplomas from reputable collegiate institutions, whether intending or not intending to become candidates for advanced degrees. The bulletin of the Graduate College shows, by de- partments, the subjects and facilities offered. L. A. Shkrman. De PaKP 160 University Extension Division a A. A. Reed, Director ' NIVERSITY extension has been an activity of the Uni- versity of Nebraska since 1.S96. At that time a few de- partments made provision for an informal type of extension work based upon lectures. From six to tvi-elve lectures constituted a course. The lectures were to be given at intervals of from one to two weeks, each one followed by discussions. Formal reading lists accompanied the course, and provision was made for grant- ing college credit upon successfully passing formal examinations. The formal organization of University Extension Division work was in 1 90S, when J. L. McBricn was called from the office of the state superintendent of public instruction to become director of the University Extension Division. Soon after, the present general plan of organization was developed. The present director took charge of the department in 1911. Correspondence study has always held a prominent place in the extension program since the reorganization of 1909 made a place for this type of instruction. In the years that have followed, instruction by correspondence has grown in importance. Now thirt departments offer over a hundred courses, nearly all for credit. The total registration to date has been 7,896 college and 764 secondary courses. Twenty-eight per cent of these have been in English, twenty-three per cent in education and fourteen per cent in history. Since correspondence instruction has been offered by the University, 2,.iJ8 students have completed courses carrying 9,525 credit hours. Generally but a few hours are needed by any one student. Provision is made, however, for recognizing a liberal amount of work of this nature. One student has a record of tifty-two hours, one of thirty hours, five of twenty-five or more hours, and eleven of over ten hours extension work. When approved by the authorities of the local schcxil, students may apply, toward graduation from high school, credits earned by correspondence study. A full high school course of thirty credits is now available, so that students can prepare for full admission to college by correspondence study. High school graduates who are unable to enter college at once can keep fresh in their work and can shorten the time necessary for graduation by means of home study. Teachers can meet many of the certification requirements by correspondence study, such as com- pletion of the high school course, renewal of certificates, and securing credits necessary for a life certificate. Several departments in different colleges of the University of Nebraska are co-operating with the Extension Division in offering instruction by means of evening classes, some courses for credit and some without credit. This work is given both on the Lincoln campus and in Omaha. It includes courses in engineering, business administration, in the Teachers College and in the College of Arts and Sciences. Where college credit is desired, correspondence study is combined with classroom work as a means of insuring the quality of instruction. In the last five years in which work of this nature has been offered students have registered for 4,101 courses. The University Extension Division is assisting in the nation-wide movement to improve the physi- cal condition of public school pupils. To that end, the division is working with the department of physical education and athletics in holding schools for training coaches of athletics. These schools are held at Lincoln at the time of important athletic events and at such points in the state as will best serve the convenience of the school authorities. In order to aid in preparing competent leadership for the Boy Scout movement, the Extension Division conducts schcwls for the training of scout masters. Several such schools have been held in Lincoln and in Omaha. University extension is for the benefit of all the people and is comprehensive, including the work of all departments of the University proper, so far as practicable, and covering the widest possible range of study of all questions that concern the people. Its purpose is clearly set forth in Professor Caldwell ' s report to the Chancellor and Board of Regents, made April 18, 1908: " To investigate all problems, artistic, literary, historical, social, industrial, moral, political, educational; problems of sanita- tion, city lighting, banking, crises, money, divorces, etc. — in fine, all problems that may concern the citizens of Nebraska.

Condra ■HE conservation and survey work of Nebraska was started 1908 under Governor Sheldon. Part of this was duected from the University, but not as an official de- partment. This arrangement continued until 191 J when the Lejjislature created the Conservation and Soil Survey of the University and defined its duties and purposes. The Legislature ot 1921 increased the scope of the work and changed the name to the Conservation and Survey Division of the University. The Division as now constituted includes research, survey, and other departments relating to the state resources and their develop- ment. It performs a comprehensive service for the state and University as shown by the following departments. State Soil Survey. This department, co-operating with the U. S. Bureau of Soils, completes four to six counties of the state a year and has finished to date fifty-two counties. The iield work, drafting, transfer work, and bulletin writing are directed by the Division at the University but the publication of county reports is done by the U. S. Department of Agricul- ture at Washington. State Geological Si. ' RVEY. This survey studies, maps, and describes the topography, geology and geography of the state. It secures the logs of deep wells drilled in the state and preserves the rock specimens encountered in the same. During the past few years considerable time has been given to a survey of the geological structures in view of their probable oil and gas production. This survey, and especially the part relating to geography, has prepared an accurate sectional base map lor the state. Data were secured through the land classification, soil survey, and other first hand sources. The map is now available for use in compiling data on topography, drainage, soil regions, geology, forest distribution, road materials, water resources, and the diifer- ent cultural features. In I act. a set of maps for the state, made along these lines, is well under way. Road Materials. The road-building materials of the state are surveyed and described by the Division, and the College of Engineering tests these materials in order to determine their fitne.ss for the different kinds of con- struction. The state ' s sand and gravel, subsoil and stone used in road making have been described in bulletins of the Division. Water Resources. The Division is required to investigate the ground waters and surface waters of the state and to advise regarding their development. Technical assistance is offered farms and towns in securing and im- proving their water supplies. The water power resources of the state have been studied quite closely for publication. State Forester. The work of the forester is in this Division. Professor A. J. Pool, chairman of the Depart- ment of Botany of the University, has for some time served as state forester without compensation. Various reports have been made on the forest resources. Town and Institutional Planning. Assistance is given the towns and cities of the state in planning their streets, parks, water supplies and in zoning. Kearney, Hastings, and other places were a,ssi.sted last year. Some help is offered state and private institutions in better planning. Professor M. I. Evinger, who is employed jointly by the College of Engineering and the Conservation and Survey Divi,sion, is in charge of this work. Survey of Indi ' stries, Although the statutes require the Division to study and describe the state ' s indus- tries, this work has been neglected for other activities. The beet sugar, butter, and a few other industries have been investigated with considerable detail and a general survey of the manufacturers is now under way. A bulletin on the resources and indu.stries of the state is published every two years. Several professors of the University and pcnsons connected with state departments and organizations collaborate in the preparation of articles for these reports. Bulletin No. 16 was the last one issued in this scries. Photixirapiuc Work. The photographic work of the state departments, including the University, is done by the Division at cost. It includes both still and motion pictures. The " Campus Studio, " known to most students of the University because of the Cornhus er groups that were made there, is one of the best equipped of its kind in any university. The Division has many still picture negatives from which prints are used in publications and lantern slides arc made. About one hundred motion picture reels showing the resources, industries. University, Legislature, and other features of the state have been produced. These slides and films, together with films secured from Federal Depart- ments and other sources, are circulated generally in Nebraska and to some extent in other .states. Information Bureal ' . This department serves the state as an information bureau in regard to its resources, industries and development, and investigates and reports upon foreign realty sold or offered for sale in Nebraska. The service relating to inquiries about Nebraska is based upon our surveys and that touching the foreign realty is based upon the Federal and state maps and reports covering the areas in question. In cases for which reliable in- formation is not available in published form and for which data cannot be secured from state and Federal depart- ments, persons are sent from the Division to make inspecti ms and reports. The projects (land, mineral and oil) found to be fraudulent or misrepresented are reported to the attorney-general for action. The work of the Information Bureau is appreciated by the citizens of the state because it is a practical safe- guard against fraud, and tends to conserve business. PaKe 162 ALUMNI " ? [o people can he bound to ac- knowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step bv which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some to en of Providential agency. " — George Washington Paee 163 J[ Work of the Alumni Association M (By Harold F Holtz) C5 Harold F. Holtz Secretary ' Aliainii Association VC graduates, carrying Bachelor ot I ' hilosophy degrees, walked out of University Hall fifty-two years ago this June, and the University of Nebraska had Its first alumni — the first degrecAvinning students .itter the granting of a charter to the University of Ne- braska, fifty-six years ago last February 1 , by the state legislature. Since those first two students proudly walked from the University campus, degrees in hand, nearly twelve thousand young men and women from Nebraska and surrounding states have won degrees at Nebraska. Besides these students, more than twenty thousand others have been students of the University at some time or other. This makes a total of thirty thousand young men and women, with a common purpose of fitting themselves to live better lives, who have come and gone from the University of Nebraska. With the natural ties formed by memories of happy days and years at the University, it was inevitable that some permanent bond should be established among those who had spent what they chose to call the happiest years of their life on the Nebraska campus. Memories of the past were too strong to allow these former Nebraska class- mates — scattered to the four corners of the earth — to forget, and to lose their friendship for each other and the University of Nebraska. Spontaneously, a demand for a connecting link between these alumni and the Univer- sity arose. The Alumni Associ.ition of the University of Nebras- ka was created to meet this demand for the sons and daughters of the University of Nebraska. With the primary purpose of keeping alumni in touch wirn one another and with the University, the Alumni Association has grown and prospered until now t is more than fulfilling its original purpose, for it is playing a vital part in the development of a gretaer University of Nebraska. At the agricultural campus on June 12, 1907, the first AUinini Association meeting of which an ' record can be found was held. Tlie late Prof. Harry Kirke Wolfe, A.B. ISSO, A.M., Ph.D. 1.S86 Leipzig, presided. Prof. H. W. Caldwell, who received his degree from Nebraska in hSSd, definitely outlined at this meeting the influence which the alumni should have on the University. He spoke of the University and its increasing needs, its demands upon the alumni, and the duty of the alumni in helping to secure the appropriations from the state for the University — all tasks in which the alumni ever since have been busily engaged. The officers chosen to direct the efforts of the alumni were: E. P. Brown, president E. H. Clark, secretary-treasurer Lucy Green, first vice-president O. J. Fee, chairman of the executive committee N. Z. Snell, second vice-president Reminiscences form the best source of record of the early wt)rk of the Alumni Association, for no definite written records were kept. Almost the only acts of the association were to meet at com- mencement for discussion and for election of new officers. Dues of the association were five dollars a year, but the assessment was rarely paid and the treasury was consequently us ually empty. By 1911 the activities of the association had .so grown and multiplied that it was found necessary to employ a tull-time secretary, and George W. Kline, ' 00, now of the Kline Publishing Company of Lincoln, was chosen for the place. A lack of funds, however, soon made the employment of a full- time secretary financially impossible, and Guy Reed, ' 11, then graduate manager of athletics at the University, now with the Harris Trust Company of Chicago, was chosen to act as secretar ' in con junction with his work in the athletic department. Annis Chaiken, ' 08, now Mrs. C. A. Sorenson of Lincoln, succeeded Mr, Reed iii 1916 as a tull-time secretary. The first definite organization work of a permanent char.icter was begun under Paite 164 R. E. Campbell President AIidthii Assocmtum the direction of Miss Chaikcn who served until October, ' )2 , when the present iccret.iry, H.irold F. Holt;, ' 17, .issiinied the office. A publication dcsisjned to give news ot the Univer- sity and alumni was necessary to cement and vitalize the ties between the alumni and the University. In 1900 the e.irliest forerunner of The J ebras}{(i Alumnus was printed. It was a monthly bulletin, edited by H. G. Shedd, " 97, now president of the Shedd Investment Com- pany of Omaha. The rci ularity of its appearance and the date of its decease are unknown, because no file of this pioneer publication was kept. In October, 191?, printer ' s ink again became the tool of the Alumni As- sociation, when Mr. Reed originated The Tvjebrasl a Alumnus, a monthly magazi ne of thirty-two pages and cover. Lack of funds brought an untimely end to this publication in the spring of 191 ' !. The ne.xt publication experiment of the association was the alumni edition of The Llniversny Journal, published quarterly. By May, 1922, the growth of the University and of the interest of the alumni in University affairs had been so rapid that it was necessary to publish a monthly alumni magazine, and The Journal was issued monthly. Since then the magazine has been improved and enlarger until the publication, given back the old name of The Klehraska Ahimnus in September, 1924, is now a forty-page well- illustrated magazine of instructive articles and news briefs. Keeping the correct addresses of alumni is perhaps the biggest office .service rendered by the asso- ciation. The sons and daughters of the University of Nebraska, a family of about thirty thousand members, are constantly moving about, and the alumni office is constantly checking up on the where- abouts of all former Cornhuskers. Every day dozens of changes of address are sent to the office by Nebraskans always in touch with the University through the alumni office. Communications from the office to alumni are often returned by the postoffice marked " moved, left no address. " Then an information letter is sent to parents or friends of the " missing " Nebraskan in order to secure the new address. These persistent eiforts rarely fail to bring the new address into the alumni files. The magni- tude of this address-keeping service can be more easily appreciated when one learns that about five hundred changes of address are made by Nebraska alumni each month. When the new address reaches the office, the not-easy task of recording it in the different files is quickly but carefully done. Each of these changes in address is recorded in the addressograph nxmi, where all out-going mail from the alumni office is addressed. The addressograph operator is kept busy not only keeping the address files up to the minute, but also sending out almost daily large shipments of mail and once a month The Alumnus. Another duty of the operator is notifying subscribers of the expiration of thcr subscriptions. Nebraska ' s great Memorial Stadium was made a reality through the work of the Alumni Associa- tion, which is now faithfully engaged in collecting the pledges made for the building of the structure. One office worker and other assistants are engaged in collection of these funds, to be used in paying the bonds by means of which the stadium was built. Monthly statements must be mailed, changes of address kept, and receipts sent to the subscribers. Hundreds of letters must be written each month to keep payments from falling behind. Memories of happy college years are brought back to Nebraskans all over the w )rld on February H each year, when classmates located thousands of miles apart " li.sten in " on the Charter Day radio program broadcast by the Alumni Association. Preparation for this event keeps the alumni office busy for weeks in advance, securing a fitting program and carrying on an extensive campaign tor a large " listening in " attendance by alumni clubs and individuals. The last Charter Day program was given by more than one hundred and fifty persons-- students, and faculty members around whom Nebraska traditions center. Two long distance telephone lines carried the program to the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company at Hastings, where the program was broadcast thousands of miles in every direction by the great radio sending .set there. That gladness and happy memories had been brought to the hearts of thousands of Nebraskans by this program was evidenced by the hundreds of Pat-e Iti. ' i ¥ telegrams and letters received at the office ackno vleds;int; .md praising the prosjram. Club meeting reports of that night came in by the score. Before the memories of Charter Day have faded away, the alumni office is preparing for another big event of the year — Round-Up. This three-day celebration, when hundreds of alumni pack their grips and come back to Lincoln to live their college years over for a few days, calls for a great work of program preparing and organizing by the alumni office. The issue of a Directory of Alumni, published for the service it can give to alumni everywhere and to different departments of the University, is a task performed by the Alumni Association every three or four years. The last directory, published in 192.i, represented the achievement of months of work. The magnitude of this task, requiring the careful and absolutely accurate recording and re-recording of information concerning all alumni since those first two graduates left University Hall, is hard to realize, but the result, the 650-page directory, is daily serving thousands of alumni and University folk. At various times the alumni office is called upon to perform other services to the University and to Its alumni. Many times the alumni office has started graduates on the road to success by placing them in positions of opportunity. Frequent inquiries come from business concerns for information concerning the record of some graduate who is seeking to establish a new business connection. The alumni office is nearly always able to supply the desired information concerning the applicant. Classmates and friends of bygone years frequently make use of the alumni office in getting in touch with one another. Requests for addresses come almost daily to the office, and so complete are the alumni address files that rarely is such a request not fulfilled. The organizing of al umni clubs in distant localities is often carried out by means of the alumni office, where lists of alumni living in a community are prepared and sent to one in the locality who is anxious to organize a new club. Dur- ing the football season the alumni office acts as a clearing house for tickets, and requests come in by the score. With these services constantly being performed by the alumni office, it is necessary that it have an efficient organization, a capable personnel, and modern equipment. Six persons, full of a con- sciousness of the importance of their services to the University and to the alumni, form the regular staff of workers in the alumni office. Besides this force, several part-time workers are employed to help out when the duties of the office are especially heavy. A modern, roomy, well-arranged office in the Temple building houses the alumni organization. Modern steel filing cabine ts, various mechanical devices for speeding up and making more efficient the routine work of the office, are kept m operation most of the time. A home-like visiting corner with a comfortable and appropriate atmosphere is provided for the convenience of visiting alumni. In the daily life of the University little is said of the work that the Alumni Association performs, for it makes no public boast of its accomplishments. It is an information bureau, a publication office, a collection agency, a visiting place and a recording bureau, all combined into one. Its greatest serv- ice, performed by means of these agencies, is in serving those who have left the institution, and in building, through them, a greater Nebraska.

Mr. Nielsi-n was a plenipotentiary delegate of the United States at the International Conference, helil in Chris- tiania in 11)14. He attended the peace conference in Paris to deal with matters relating to treaties, and he was the pi ' ineipal t ' presentative of the Uniteil Stales on a commission which sat at Paris in 1919 to consider the revision of tlie treaties of lS:i9. He served as a membei- of thi- board of examiners for entrance til the diplomatic service of the United States, and acted as a chairman in the Conference on the Limitation of Armament.

In the election of November. 192 1, he was elected governor of Utah. Another Nebraska man is E. H. TAYLOR. He is Associate editor of The Country GcntJcman. In his letter to the COKX- Tii ' SKER. Mr. Taylor says, " Seeking has always been the chief ac- tivity of many, partly for self gratification, partly out of an inordinate amount of curiosity. Until the day of our- jiioneer fathers closed, this impulse commonly concerned itself with the search for- new and iicher- and more congenial lantls. There arc no more new lantls. So those of us who have inherited the anci- ent urge have had to turn to something else. In my case it takes the form of seeking the truth about some of the interesting tendencies of life, of seeking new writers, and new ai ' ticles and stories of oi ' iginality and worth. " In the jiost script he adds that his college associates will probably remember him as Zach Taylor. MISS MARY SULLIVAN has an inter-esting line of occui a- tion.

I ' cplacing elect ric light bulbs, and insi ailing teli-phones. to have inter-views with parents who cannot urrdeistand wby their- sons have failed in examinations, to hear api eals fi-om students who seek credit foi- good int ' ntions in default of knowledge, to g ' t up at four o ' clock in the mor-ning to r ' rovido bail for stu- dent violators of traffic regulations, and to argui ' with the su- perior authoiit ' os that in an academic institution, money is bet- ter spent upon books than upon paint.

" Tiventy years furni.sh much evi ' dence to those who can profit by experience, and modern life is such a flutter of pre.

In these days that can produce such extreme phenomena as Loeb and Leopold, that fill our prisons with youthfid offenders against society, that pile up a hill of ten billion dollars a year against this nation as the cost of its crime, we must see further for life ' s true objectives than those most tangible and materialistic values that represent the com. ' mon motives of men — power, fame, wealth, ease, luxury. Real worth persists in what we are — not what we can mal{e our neighbors thin}{ we are — not in what we can acquire of power or wealth. Our value of life goes on and on — character. It alone — trith its affects upon others — 15 eternal. The college man. the college woman, are too often deceived. Training, ability, effi- ciency, power to acquire — all necessary — all minor goals — deceive and mislead. J one of these lead to ultimate and final success unless their development has meant the build- ing of sincere and genuine character — habits and attitudes of life that include a purity that is more than self-control, an honesty of mind that is more than reliability, an initiative that is more than defensive courage, a spirit of service that is more than passive unselfish- ness, a desire for co-operation that is more than a willingne. is to he charitable, a sense of loyalty to a great cause, a power to assume responsibility . Fellow Cornhusl{ers, our college life is an open door to leadership — if we ma}{e the goal of our college career life ' s real value — character.

Weir Sampson Woodard Vikings Vikings, honorary ' junior men ' s society, is composed of junior men selected from various fraterni- ties on the campus. The Vikings attempt to promote and sponsor worth-while student activities and traditions. Each year the Vikings are in charge of Dad ' s Day, a day set aside for every " dad " to visit the University. The only social event of the year is the annual dinner-dance, held soon after the initiation of the members for the coming year. The active Vikings, the members of the previous year, and the new members all attend this affair. Silver Serpent Silver Serpent, honorary society for juni or women, has as its purpose the promotion of friend ' ship and co-operation among the various groups on the campus. It works particularly among junior women. The organization was founded in March, 1906, one year after the founding of Black Masque. The society serves as a representative body to consider and promote measures concerning junior women. This year its policy has been also to discuss questions of campus-wide importance and to place the decisions of the organization before the women of the groups represented.

The organization is composed of forty women, one from each sorority, and an equal number of non-sorority women. The membership is limited to freshman and sophomore women. The purpose of the Tassels is to promote school spirit and to give the girls an active in- terest in the presentation of athletic events. In 1924 stunts were arranged for most of the games by the Tassels, either alone or in conjunction with the Corn Cobs. They also presented short skits at the women ' s Cornhusker party and at University Night. The uniform is a white skirt and red sweater. OFFICERS Mortar Board Chairman NEV.

J University Y. M. C. A. secretary, with a mere handful of the members of the class of 1928, a small circle of freshman was assembled early in the fall of 1924, to discuss the possibility of forming an organization to promote the spirit and activities of the " Y " among the men of the class. After several preliminary meetings the Freshman Council was officially established. Eighteen men, including representatives of Greek letter societies and non-fraternity groups, comprise the membership. This number may be increased or de- creased in the future. First among the noticeably important events sponsored by the council was a freshman stag party, followed a few weeks later by a well attended freshman Hallowe ' en stag. From the beginning the council worked for attendance at the World Forum luncheons and thus came to support discussions of the New Testament led by Dr. Curry of New York. At present the meetings are devoted to informal discussions concerning the interpreta- tion and application of Christ ' s teachings. This body strives to bring before all members of the fre.4iman cl.iss the ideals and practices ot the world-wide Christian student movement. Analogous to the women ' s Freshman Commission is the men ' s Freshman Council. For several years the former has existed, and observation of its usefulness encouraged the crea- tion of the latter. Although the Freshman Council has hardly yet found itself, present members have so profited from the organization that they believe it will prove instrumental in advancing Kith the mora! and scholastic welfare of Nebra ka men.

At present, from twenty-five to twent ' ' seven women are chosen each fall as representative of all the freshman women in University Y. W. A. activities. The event which has come to be a part of the work of Freshman Commission, which has given it a recognized place on the campus, is held each fall soon after the term is begun. Freshman women are invited to go on a tour of inspection of the campus and to a " get- acquainted " party afterwards. Another .itiair, for whose success Freshman Commission is resfxinsible, is the annual " kid party " held at Ellen Smith Hall in the spring. Then all freshman girls go back to their childhood days once more before resuming the responsibilities of a sophomore. The regular meetings of Freshman Commission arc devoted to discussion of the prob- lems which affect all freshman girls on the campus. A senior w-oman from the Y. W. C. A. cabinet directs the work of the groups. OFFICERS President HELEN GuTHRlE Secretaries Helen Reynolds Mari.an Eimers Page 299 i-si L ' -}}Zik ' : iik j ' iir:-. v! .

The proposition of forming such a Kidy was put to a student vote and adopted, almost unanimously. May 2 5, 1917. A constitution was drawn up with the following preamble concerning the duties and purpose of the organization: " It shall have the purpose of relating of all extra-curricular activities to one another and to the University as a v fhole; the creation of some other expressions of student life to supplement those already established: the direction of such other matters of student interest as shall be initiated by or referred to the Student Council. " The Council is composed of seven junior men, one each from the College of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Law, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Business Administration; four junior women, one each from the colleges of Agriculture and Arts and Science, the School of Fine Arts, and Teachers College; four seniors, two men and two women, chosen from the council of the preceding year and designated as the nucleus for the succeeding year.

Fogg HE organization, in the early years of the University, of four debating societies — Palladian, Union, Dehan, and Maxwell — begins the history of debating at Ne- braska. In 1S95 a team from the University met three men from the University of Kansas in what was Nebraska ' s first intercdllegiate debate. In 1901 Prof. M. M. Fogg, vv-hose training in the Eng- li.-h department of Brown and H.irvard Universities eminent- Iv fitted him for the task, came to the University and re- organized this all-University activity. It is from this date that the " Nebraska System, " with its insistence on clear, analytical thinking, an appreciation of the truth, and pleas- ing, forceful, and effective speaking has trained the inter- collegiate debate representatives. In the " Think Shop " — University Hall 106A — are col- lected posters and momentos of the intercollegiate forensic contests since 1902. To this " Think Shop, " in which 165 students of Nebraska have weighed and sifted evidence in preparation for intellectual battles, return, at " Round-Up " time, the former debaters. Known as the only class on the campus with an alumni association, the seminar binds its members together with memories which are emphasized and refreshed every Christmas by the annual news letter which is sent out by Professor Fogg ' s office. High scholarship has been one of the distinguishing characteristics of the seminar members. One-third of those graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences have been members of Phi Beta Kappa and two-thirds of those who hold degrees from the College of Law are members of the Order of the Coif. Four of the seminar members have been Rhodes Scholars from Nebraska. From nineteen contestants two teams for the 1 92 5 season were selected on Februarj ' 1 1 . The question was, " Resolved: That congress should be given the power to overrule, by a two- thirds vote of both houses, supreme court decisions which declare acts of congress unconstitutional. " The affirmative team was pitted against Iowa in the debate in the Temple Theater on March 19. George Johnson, ' 22, Lincoln; ' Volta Terry, ' 26, Aurora; Alexander McKie, ' 25, Omaha, and Edward Jennings, " 26, Lincoln (alternate) represented Nebraska in the Iowa contest. The negative team debated South Dakota at Vermillion on the same date, with David Sher, ' 28, Omaha; Ralph G. Brooks, Law ' 27, Lincoln; Lloyd J. Marti, Law ' 27, Lincoln; and John A. Otley, ' 25, Waverly, (alternate) for Nebraska. Paul Haberlan, ' 27, Lincoln, and Douglass W. Orr, ' 27, Lincoln, were made members of the seminary to share in the work of preparing the issues and the arguments on the question. With the selection of these teams and members of the seminary, seven names were added to the roll of those who have made their mark in University debate — of whom many have subsequently made a very definite mark in the fields of activity beyond that of the University.

To be eligible for membership one must have participated in at least one intercollegiate forensic contest. Serving as judges and presiding officers at the state high school debating tournament, judging high schcwl debates out in the state, assisting in the staging of the interclass debate tournament at the University — these have been some of the activities of the Nebraska chapter this year. Every year the chapter also holds a reunion for former members of the inter ' collegiate debate seminar. The society was organized at Chicago on April 13, 1906, by eight of the middle western universities, one of v hich was Nebraska. The other charter members v. ' cre Chicago, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, and Wisconsin. The fraternity is governed by an executive committee which is composed of the gen- eral officers and district vice-presidents. The present president is Stanley B. Houck of Minneapolis.

Alpha chapter of the fraternity was founded at Nebraska in 1912 by Everett Lanphere, Luther G. Andrews, and Boyd Edwards and the fraternity was nationalized in 1920. Gamma Lambda aims for closer fellowship and co-operation among the members of the band, handles business affairs of the band, and sponsors the concerts given by that organization each year. The members of Gamma Lambda are chosen annually from the incoming members of the band on the basis of the interest they have shown in the band and their ability as musicians.

In the winter of 1910-1911 several members of the junior class conceived the idea of presenting a play. The class president, W. L. Bates, appointed a committee which chose the play " A Message from Mars. " Under the direction of Prof. R. D. Scott, this play was produced at the Oliver theater (now the Liberty), Saturday, March 18, 1911. The success of the play led the committee members to believe that such an organization as Kosmet might succeed. Henry F. Wunder suggested the idea and asked the rest of the charter members to go in. J. F. Mead named the organization Kosmet Klub and although it is supposedly a dark secret as to its derivation, the name was taken from " cosmetics ' " if the truth were known. The plan on which the club operates is that each year an original musical comedy, written and produced by students of the University of Nebraska or by parties connected with the Uni- versity, shall be produced. A prize is offered annually for the best manuscript submitted. The progress of Kosmet Klub has been rapid and its strength is known to the student body whose patronage has made Kosmet productions .successful. The growth of the club is shown by plans now being discussed tor taking the shows to several of the larger cities besides Omaha, to create a permanent endowment fund and to present an annual muscial farce in addition to the spring comedy.

I ' laliu-i Dougan Women ' s Self Government Association y EC HE Women ' s Self-Government Association is the one organization on the campus to which all C J girls in school automatically belong upon matriculation. Through a representative executive " body they manage all campus alfairs which pertain particularly to women. This executive body is a board of fourteen members elected in the spring of the year, consisting of six seniors, four juniors, and four sophomores. This board is assisted in the making of rules by a legislative body, the council which is formed from representatives from every organized rooming and sorority house on the campus. With the increase in law-making powers each year, this organization became in 1919 a unit of the National Self-Government Association giving it the right to make all laws governing women students during the school year. The W. S. G. A. is an outgrowth of the " University Girls ' Club " which was founded fourteen y«ars ago. At first it merely sponsored fellowship among the girls through frequent parties and social activities. Soon it became the most active women ' s organization on the campus, taking charge of the " Big and Little Sister " movement. During the iirst year the tradition of the Girls ' Cornhusker Lunch- eon was founded, a twenty-cent luncheon in the basement of the Temple building serving as the first celebration of the tradition which has grown in popularity until this year the Cornhusker Luncheon had almost one thousand girls at its tables. During the second year, the W. S. G. A. started another activity which has since become a Nebraska tradition — the Girls ' Cornhusker Party, an activity which will in all probability become a tradition was initiated by the W. S Morning Breakfast. Aside from making laws the chief duties of the organization are: 1. To manage a vocational guidance week for girls. 2. To maintain a loan fund for needy girls unable to make their own way through school. 3. To sponsor the Girls ' Cornhusker Luncheon on Home-coming Day, the Girls ' Cornhusker Party the second week in December, and the May Morning Breakfast the first wvek in May. 4. To sponsor and support the Big Sister Board. Because of $. 00 support from the Board of Regents for this year ' s work, it is possible to plan for next year an undertaking which will doubtless be W. S. G. A. ' s greatest achievement. A system of co-operative nx)ming houses for girls is being worked out and will be put into practice next fall. OFFICERS President B.arb.

Its purpose is friendly y and social, although its organizers, before the advent of the Women ' s Athletic Asso- ciation, had in mind that it seek to promote enthusiasm for women ' s athletics. Valkyrie draws its membership from those who are within forty-five hours of graduation. It is traditional that on Ivy Day the society presents an award to the senior girl having the highest average in scholarship for her senior year.

STIMULATION of thinking on the religious and social problems of the day has been the end to which the University Y. M. C. A. has directed its greatest efforts during the school year of 1924-2S. The " Y, " by inspiring clear, careful thinking, and loyal discipleship, exerts no little influence on the campus. Under the guidance of the Cabinet, composed of students, and the Advisory Board, composed of faculty and business men, and the officers, a gradually expanding program has been promoted. The World Forum, sponsored jointly by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A., has been one of the helpful and popular projects of the year. The relations of Christianity to the urgent problems and dommating ideas of the present day are frankly discussed at these weekly luncheons, which an average of more than one hundred and fifty men and women attended. Many noted speakers ad- dressed the Forum and lively discussions followed e ach presentation. Dr. Bruce Curry of New York City came to the University under the joint auspices of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. in February to lead a series of discussions on the New Testament and its rela- tion to modern problems. At the request of Dr. Curry the attendance at these discussions was limited to 175 men and women. Earlier in the fall, Paul Blanshard of New York City, Secretary of the League for Industrial Democracy, led a series of discussions in which the ideals and motives of the modern labor movement, in relation to the consumer, the capitalist, and to organized religion were considered. A Freshman Council, to promote effectively the activities of the Y. M. C. A. among the first year men, was organized this year. Co-operation with the various churches and other Christian organizations in efforts to solve the moral and religious problems of the University is another field of the " ' Y ' s " work. The usual service program, including securing rooms and employment for hundreds of students, and the publication of the " N " Book and the Student Directory, in collaboration with the Y. W. C. A , was carried out this year. Spacious study and reading rooms are provided in the Temple. The fun fest of the college year, " University Night, " presented at the Temple and Orpheum theatres on February 28, was sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. General direction of the affairs of the University Y. M. C. A. is in the hands of the General Secretary, Mr. Arthur Jorgensen, " 08, an able leader with long experience in religious and social work. A budget of approximately $6,000, contributed by students, faculty members, alumni, and citizens of Lincoln, is required to cany on the activities of the year. 7, OFFICERS Pre.sident , Alex McKie Vice-President Robert Sl.

Cabinet QERHAPS the most active work of the Young Women ' s Christian Association this year was carried on through the World Forum committee, which is composed of both Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. members. At the weekly luncheons arranged by these committees, stu- dents are enabled to hear series of lectures on the most vital questions of the world. The groups mcluded political speeches, presentation of the ' views of life of the various civilisations, and mili- tary discussions which ranged from pacifism to staunch preparedness. The v. ' eekly vesper service held each Tuesday at Ellen Smith Hall is an opportunity for University women to hear speakers who are well up in the world in religious work. The two associations co-operated in bringing Paul Blanchard and Dr. Bruce Curr ' to the campus for the purpose of carrying on student discussions. The former, who is secretary of the League for Industrial Demcxrracy, dealt with the labor movement as it affects the consumer, the capitalist, and organized religion. Dr. Curry held classes in the study of the New Testament and the application of Christianity to modern life. The cabinet of the organization is composed of the officers and the chairmen of the com- mittees through which the work is conducted. The committees are membership, world fellowhsip, Bible study, conference, social, social service. Vesper service, posters, rooms, office-church rela- tionship, freshman commission, student friendship, Grace CoppcKk, Vesper Choir finance, and publicity. A budget of $18,000 was raised this year for the support of the various projects. One thousand five hundred and fifty dollars was contributed to the Grace Coppock campaign for the maintenance of Vera Barber in China as recreational secretary. Americanization work is carried into the Mexican homes where the newcomers are taught the rudiments of the English language and English customs. Night classes at the city schools are maintained for these natives of other nations who are unable to attend day school. The publication of the " N " Book and the student directory has been the work of the publicity committees of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. for some years.

The aim of such parties when they were begun was to provide parties for all members of the University, regardless of scholastic or social class, and to develop democratic ideals and a friendly atmosphere among all students at the University, The attendance at the parties has easily made such expectations a reality. Five parties are given each year: the Fall party, the Thanksgiving party, the Christmas party, the Valentine party, and the Spring party. The decorations and amusement are in accordance with the par- ticular time the party is held. The evening is mainly devoted to dancing, with appropriate amusement and refreshments during a short intermission. They are one of the greatest factors in promoting true democratic spirit.

M. C. A. The show was presented at both theaters simultaneously, the acts being transferred from one to the other. Spreading of " scandal " about prominent students and members of the faculty and satire on campus institutions was carried out in verse, songs, pictures, and skits. A scandal sheet, The Shun, di.stnbuted immediately after the show by Sigma Delta Chi, had been the climax of the evening in former years, but a ruling of the Student Publcations Board halted the publication of any such sheet this year. Slides projected on the screen took the place ot the publication. The program this year was short and well staged. Bill Norton appeared first in his " prologue. " The acts which followed were: " A Representation of Eva Faye, " by the Engineers; " Mike and Ike -They Look the Same, " a curtain skit by Judd Crocker and George Johnston; a take-off on the Student Council by the Dramatic Club: a series of songs, skits, and dances by the Corn Cobs: " Where Men Are Men, and So Are Women, " a group of songs and dances by Frank Mielenz and Lyle Holland, with Lois Butler at the piano; the " Major-Minor Review " with Harnett Cruise, Al Gould, Maurine Champe, and an orchestra, a program of songs and dancing; and a take-off on University notables, " Is We or Ain ' t We, " by the Tassels.

It is the aim of the organization " to estahUsh a basis of real individual friendship between the women of the freshman class and the upperclasswomen by giving thought to their college life and making plans to meet their needs; calling on them in their homes; taking them to college meetings and to church; and attempting to give the little sisters some true ideas of their relations to the University, the Y. W. C. A., the Women ' s Self-Government Association, the Women ' s Athletic Association, and to other student activities. " The Board maintains a list of about 300 active big sisters, and about 600 little sisters. The big sisters are organized into groups, with a board member acting as an advisor. Meetings are held to discuss the work. For the first time during the history of the hoard, it has maintained a major position. The president automatically becomes a member of the W. S. G. A. Board because of associated sup- port. The new members of the board are elected by the old board members. The sophomore and junior members serve two years in order to maintain a standard of efficiency in the work. This year the special work of the board has been the formulation of a new constitution, and the arrangement of big sister convocations and big and little sister Vespers, dinners, and parties. Feeling the need of advice and council an advisory board has been elected to serve next year, consisting of one faculty member, one mother, one alumnae, one church, and one Y. W. C. A. advisory representative. OFFICERS President ..M. bll Lundv Vice-President Edith Cook Secretary Mary Creekp. um Treasurer.

Ten women came together under the direction of Miss Amy Martin. The group was organized to furnish music for the vesper services held each Tuesday in Ellen Smith Hall. The choir, however, met with such approval that it grew in size and now furnishes music for a number of affairs. The choir not only sings for the weekly Vesper Services but also at the City Mission each month and occasionally at the city Y. W. C. A. It provides the music for the annual early morning prayer service, Christmas and Easter carols, the May morning breakfast, and the installation of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet, of which the choir leader is a member. The members of the choir are picked by means of competitive tryouts. The forty are chosen from seventy-five or more competitors. The purpose of the choir is to promote the spirit of worship and reverence at vesper services and at any other services for which it sings.

Forty men are chosen each year by competitive tryouts to make up the membership of the club. From this membership a group of twenty-six or thirty men are picked to make the sprint; tour. The Glee Club won third place in the first Missouri Valley Glee Club contest, held in Kansas City on February 9th. The winner of this contest was sent to New York by the National Association of Glee Clubs to take part in a national competition. The Glee Club made a tour of ten days over the southern part of the state during the spring vacation. Several week-end trips were also made. The musical program upon these ap- pearances was varied by instrumental selections and by operatic sketches. The club has the policy of including in its repertoire only selections of the highest type and in this way it gives to the people of the state only the best music on all its appearances.

It has appeared before various clubs in the city. Selections were given for the Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, University Club, and various other organizations in the city. In all these appearances the quartet has tried to bring to the people of the city the appreciation of good music. It has represented the high ideals of the University, of which it is a part and which it represents.

At this same meeting. The Hesperian Student, the original LIniversity newspaper, was established and its publication was managed by the Palladians until the following year, when the Hesperian Asso- ciation was formed. The earliest meetings of the society were held in the north wing of University Hall. The pro- grams then consisted of essays, orations, and recitations with occasional musical numbers. Since that time the purpose of the society has gradually broadened so that the aim is now not merely to encourage literary activity, but also to provide social life and advance interest in high scholarship among its own members. In addition, the society has always worked toward stimulation of a democratic spirit among all members of the University student body. With only a few exceptions, the weekly meetings in the society ' s own rooms in the Temple are open to all students, and society members seek to extend to visitors an enjoyable .social evening. In 1904 when the drive for the Temple building was begun the Palladians tocik an active interest and in return for the sum v. ' hich they provided were given the present hall, which v. ' as ready for occupation in the autumn of 1907. Another recent activity of the society has been aiding in the establishment ot the Harry Kirk Wolfe fellowship. The Palladians pledged $J,000, nearly one-third of the entire amount necessary for this memorial, which is to a former member of the society. In 1924 the active members of Palladian devised a plan for establishing a closer relationship be- tween the alumni body and the present society. The Palladian 7 lews Letter was planned and the first i.ssue appeared at the close of the last academic year. This publication received strong support PaKi- 138 ' :■( 5 I ilnisti ' d V.Morrison Richards Tollman W. l iindy Dunniire De Ford Melick A. Pardee Bell M. I,undy Hunt Allen R Pardee Kinney McVey N.

Saxtun Hac Jones Rowher MacLaren Spark.s Palladian Literary Society from the alumni and the quarterly issues which have appeared thus far promise fulfillment of the plan of uniting the interests of active and alumni members by publishing news items of interest to both groups. The year ' s activities of Palladian include the traditional boys ' banquet at the Lincoln Hotel, the girls ' banquet in the form of a progressive three-course dinner, the Christmas party and numerous special programs by the new and old members and by the society ' s representatives from the different colleges of the University. Joint meetings with the Union and Delian societies are held several times during the year and a spirit of co-operation among the three organizations is always fostered. During its fifty-four years of existence, Palladian has counted among its members more than one thousand five hundred Nebraska students. Although the average length of an individual ' s active membership is but little more than two years, the unity of spirit is never lost and the standards of P.illadian are permanent.

Friday night finds the Union Hall open to visitors who wish to take advantage of the programs offered and of the social evening given afterward. In addition to the ordinary, general programs, Union has traditions which call for special programs. Among these are the new members ' program, boys ' night, girls ' night, the alumni program, and " Follies. " The annual banquet is held at the end of the first semester. At that time all of the active members and many of the alumni gather to tell of their experiences and to bid farewell to the seniors who are to leave at the end of the first semester. This year the banquet was held on January 10 in the main dining room at the Lincoln hotel. With the coming of spring. Union members look forward to the Crete picnic. Then every member gets " out in the open, " to row up the Blue and tramp through the woods. Union strives to maintain the high standards of scholarship that have been established by preceeding members, to develop ability in leadership, and to promote gcxid fellow.ship among all its members.

Its membership is composed of both men and women students of the University. " " Social meetings held every Friday evening are open to any University students wishing to attend. The evenings are devoted to both recreational games and stunts and to programs furnished by the members themselves. Through the social hour, the members develop group leadership in games, stunts, and contests. Through programs, they exercise their abilities of co- operatively entertaining with songs, plays, skits, and readings. Annual traditional events which bring back many alumni are the " Chautauqua Night " when Delian is hostess to Palladian and Union, the Thanksgiving home-coming dinner at the hall, and the formal banquet when the annual Prevaricator is distributed, and, as a final funfest, the all-day picnic at Crete. Delian has furnished many a lonesome, homesick freshman a pleasant evening playing games and entertaining himself. It has afforded to these freshmen and the older classmen a chance to develop their inclinations toward group organization. Its bonds have grown .so strong that alumni scattered in our state and in other states find nothing more enjoyable than a party together when- ever they can meet. Graduates have profited by these friendships and by the training m fellow- ship and leadership of party games and social gatherings ot all kinds.

The aim of this organization is: " Every Methodist woman in the university world today a leader in the Church of tomorrow. " The Kappa Phi Club is organized to form a closer association among Methodist women students; to make work among student women of the Methodist denomination more effec- tive; to maintain a more serviceable organization to take care of incoming freshmen each year; and to provide, in a college woman ' s way, religious training and wholesome social life. A national Council of Chapters is held yearly to which each chapter sends two or more delegates. The seventh Council of Chapters was held at Lakeside, Ohio, and the eighth, in 1924, at Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota, with Delta chapter as host. Three members and the sponsor of Zeta chapter, Nebraska, attended this council. The ninth Council of Chapters will be held this year at a summer resort in Mis.souri with Thcta chapter of Oklahoma entertaining. The Candle Beam is the nation.d publication of Kappa Phi and is is. ucd quarterly dur- ing the academic year. Meetings of the local chapter of the club are held twice a month. Topics related to the religious life of students are discussed. The program theme for this year is " Fruits " and the motto " Others. " These form the basis for the programs and discussions. Social life is provided through parties and mixers. The local membership of Kappa Phi is fifty with thirty-nine pledges. Pledging and initiation are held each semester. Miss Luvicy Hill, instructor m the Tcichcr- College, is the sponsor of Kappa Phi.

A president and a secretary are the only officers and it has no standing committees. The council originates and carries out its own program. For each event new committees are selected to lead the entire council in carry- ing out the project. The council is reorganized each spring for the following year, and holds one meeting, with the new members present, before the close of the winter term. Last spring the council prepared the program for 1924-25 and set the date for each event. Early in September this program was gone over carefully and a few necessary revisions made. It was then printed and mailed to about twelve hundred Methodist students. The program has been carried out as published. At the opening of the present academic year members of the Methodist Student Council tried to call on all Methodist freshmen. Students, freshmen especially, were invited to the church receptions, Sunday School classes, and Epworth leagues. Just before church .iflilia- tion Sunday, members of the council visited many students and in February they assisteJ in the annual Life Service program. This year there have been five general banquets, three all-Methodist parties in the Armory, and one outdoor picnic. OFFICERS President.. Secretary.. Id.

The Wesley Guild strives to develop leaders, both laymen and professional men; acquaint them with the church history, activities, and organization: promote a study of the Bible; and carry on wholesome social activities. This has been a very successful year for the organization. The Guild has met semi- monthly for meeting and dinner together. At the first meeting of each month, a prominent faculty member was the speaker and guest of honor. At the second meeting of each month. Dr. Harry F. Huntington, the Methodist student pastor, has led the discussions which have been based upon the Sermon on the Mount. Questions of vit.il importance to lives of the members have been discussed. The Guild now has twenty-five active members and two honor.iry members. At a number of state universities throughout the country tlicre are similar organiza- tions. Several of these local groups have felt that there should be a national organization. As a result, ten of these groups are to send delegates to Lincoln, April 6, to complete a national organization. Since the other groups bear names other than Wesley Guild, the national organization will probably be known by another name, and the Wesley Guild it the University of Nebraska will be called by the national name next year.

It has two V V specific functions: First, it seeks to assemble each semester of the academic year a large group of the students in order that they may become acquainted, and to hear a message from some outstanding Christian leader as to the place and program of the church and Christian service in the lives of men; second, it endeavors to co-operate with other Christian groups upon the campus in the promotion of all University religious interests. The club has promoted and directed in March of this year a three-day campaign among students belonging to the Christian Church in the interest of Christian life-service programs among young men and women who are receiving a university training. Dr. Royal J. Dye, for ten years a missionary- at Bologne, Belgian Congo, and Africa, Professor Glenn MacRae, the religious educational secretary of the Christian Church for the north central district of the United States, and Miss Minta Thorp, a missionar ' in India for five years, delivered addresses and held conferences. Among the specific purposes of the membership of this club are the following: The cultiva- tion of the habit of church and Bible school attendance on Sunday: the endeavor aKvays to aid in the promotion of Bible study classes and other lines of Christian educational effort in the University: the development of noble and uplifting ideals and practices in social life; and the prac- tice and defense of the highest standards of honor in the field of study, with the realization that university opportunity has as its end, not only self-development, but equipment for social service through the home, the church, the state, and other social institutions.

Cluh was recognized hy the committee on student organizations in November, V V 1924. It was organized to meet the growing need for closer union and fellowship among University women of the Christian church and to remedy the lack of co-ordination be- tween the church and the university life of the women. The purpose of this organization is to establish and maintain a friendly relation among women students of the Church of Chnst, through social and religious activities: to maintain, as individuals, a high standard of scholarship: to strive for sympathetic interest in human activities: and to develop a rich and gracious personality. Any woman of collegiate standing who expresses a desire to take part in the activities of the Church of Christ and proves herself worthy of initiation is eligible to active membership in the club. Luncheons are given at the Grand Hotel every other week for which prominent speakers arc secured. Social functions are held in private homes during the academic year.

The meetings, held regularly on the first and third Thursdays ot each month, are patterned after the Wednesday evening meetings in all Christian Science churches. Aside from a yearly reception for new students the meetings are purely of a religious nature. They are designed to provide those who are interested with opportunities of becoming better acquainted with other Christian Scientists in the University. The most important activity of the society is its promotion of an annual lecture given by a member of the Board of Lectureship of the mother church. University students and faculty members are especially invited to the lecture, but others in the city are welcomed. The members and their friends often hold unofficial gatherings at the homes of Lincoln members. These Sunday afternoon " song fests " have proved an excellent means of form- ing closer bonds of friendship and fellowship in the organization.

The first event of the year was a " get acquainted " meeting held early in the Fall, which was well attended. The first social gathering w-as the annual reception of the Knights of Columbus for all Catholic students. This reception has become a tradition in the history- of the Catholic Club. The reception is followed by the students " semi-annual initiation and party at the Knights of Columbus hall. This is one of the largest parties of the first semester. The first part of the evening is spent in administering the degrees of the initiation by the president and his staff, and the initiation ceremonies are followed by a dance in the ball room. The first party, this year, was the most successful held by the club since its establishment at the University in 1907. About three hundred attended and over one hundred and fifty took out membership cards. The membership this year has been double that of any previous year. The next gathering was at the regular monthly Communion breakfast. The students attend the 8 o ' clock services and take breakfast together once a month. At these breakfasts the work of the executive committee is submitted to the students for approval or rejection. This method obviates the necessity of the former bi-monthly meetings. The executive com- mittee of seven members is composed of the officers of the club and two members selected by the president from the club at large. As the Knights of Columbus give their annual reception, so the Daughters of America have an annual Hallowe ' en party for the club. This year about two hundred attended. Favors, refreshments, and entertainment were all in keeping with the season. The next two parties were regular club dances for the members and their friends only. These were fol- lowed by a Communion breakfast. The social season for the first semester v -as brought to a close by an elaborate Christmas party at the Knights of Columbus hall shortly before the Christmas recess began. Two hundred couples spent the evening in dancing. The last gathering of the semester was the monthly br eakfast in January. ra ' .:e 448 El .Mt-ston Mcn ' iil l " im h IvutlhT WVcUbacU Byrnes Hnbza McEelh Kelly Viftiuain Sweeney McLaughlin Rnonoy Granzrr HillrrbccU Sleffes Good Kr.ehnk.- Hart Goodson Billerbeck Schlecl Hunt Hunt Lohmeier O ' Brien ) " Hol!aren Perlin.«ki Catholic Students Club The second semester of social activity is always more or less dormant tor the six weeks of the Lenten season. This year, however, this period was bridged by a series of lectures to be delivered by prominent men of the city. The Friday following Easter Sunday the club held its annual spring party at the Knights of Columbus hall. The spring party is an even more elaborate affair than the Christmas party. Eight committees are needed to work out the plans for the party. A regular club party is held in the early days of May. At the last monthly meeting, about the middle of May, the election of officers for the coming year is held. The last social function of the year, just before the final examinations, is the club picnic at the Auto Club park. The students go to the park in cars in the late afternoon and play games until time for the picnic lunch. The evening is spent in dancing. The policy of the club provides that its social functions shall be held, not only for Catholic students, but shall be open to any friend of a member of the club, regardless of his religious creed.

Meetings of the club are held every three or four vv ' eeks during the sch«il year, at the home of some of the twins. Programs of various kinds are prepared for the entertainment. Stunts, games, and dancing, followed by a luncheon, always make up an enjoyable evening. Picnics and hikes also furnish many enjoyable times. Several meetings, programs, dinners, and hard time parties were held at the Barr, Croft, Chapman, and Brown homes this year. It is through this organization that the twins and triplet. nt the University may meet to- gether and enjoy various social functions, and it is for that purpose that the club maintains its existence.

Its purpose is to encourage higher education and especially to interest high school students of McCook in the University. The officers of the club are: Margaret Fahnestock, president; Doris Russell, vice-president; Justin Sommerville, secretary-treasurer. Lincoln meetings are held every month at the Fahnestock residence and, for the most part, are social. The club occasionally sends messages to McCook High School students to indicate its interest in their activities. A party was given at McCook last Christmas vaca- tion tor the 1925 seniors of McCook High School, by the club in co-operation with the local University club. Topics relating to University affairs were a part of the program.

This became the charter society of the Federation of Komensky Clubs of America which numbered, before the war, thirty chapters with a membership of 1,200, comprising for the most part Czechoslovak students n the prominent colleges and universities. The purpose of the Komensky Club is to bring to the Czechoslovak student a more intelligent understanding of the contribution of the Slav to the arts and sciences, to bring him better comprehension of his duties as an American citizen, and to prepare him for cultural leadership among his own people in the commonwealth. The Komensky Club ot the University of Nebraska is an informal organization wel- coming all students of Czechoskwak extraction and meeting fortnightly for the enjoyment of student fellowship and cultural entertainment.

The frontispiece design was used through the courtesy of the Red Book Publishing Company, and was designed by Franklin Bixith, one of the most eminent of American commercial designers. The remaining pages of the opening section and the Ex Libris design were worked out by the art staff of the Bureau of Engraving at Minneapolis. The three color process work in the Campus Scene Section is the work of the Bureau of Engraving artists from photographs made by Mr. A. F. Larrivee of the Campus Studio. The pen and ink drawings in black and white were designed by the Cornhusker Art Staff. In addition to these designs the Art Staff was consulted frequently by the editors in working out the general art theme of the book and in selecting designs for the cover, borders, and division pages.

It was revived this year after a year ' s absence from the campus. Awgwan began work under a slight handicap, due to its absence last year, but after a strenuous subscription campaign, which the Pi Phi ' s won, got away to a flying start with the " Comeback " number. Various other special issues were called the " Faculty, " " Sneak, " and " Prom " numbers, respectively. Then the idea of special motif for each month was abandoned.

The " Rag, " as it is known on the campus, has come to till other requirements besides those of a news origin, and Prof. M. M. Fogg, director of the Schixil ai Journalism, hopes to make it a daily Lincoln paper as the School of Journalism grows. The ' hlebras}{an was first published in 1892 under private ownership. It was a small, monthly magazine, replacing The Lassoo, a former college paper. The paper began as a semi-monthly in its second year. Almost immediately it was made a four- column, weekly paper, and the circulati on increased materially. It was published every Friday noon. The first editor of The Jslehras an was R. E. Johnson. H. T. Whitmore v ' as the first business manager. New editorial and business staffs were appointed each semester, but as the paper was under private control it is not known who made the appointments. In 1899 came the end of a " newspaper feud. " The T ebrasfjan and The Hesperian, formerly bitter rivals, consolidated and published a new paper called The ' } [ebras a ' Hesperian. The paper size was made eight instead of four pages. The 7 [ebrax an became a daily on September 18, 1901, and started on its career as the recognized University daily. At first it was owned by the Hesperian Publishing Company, with an initial capital stock of $1,500 in three hundred shares. Share holders included faculty and students of the University. It was four years before the paper came under University control. This was near the end of the college year 1905-1906, when the Board of Regents bought the stock of the Hesperian Company and put the publication into the hands of a Publication Board. The size of The J lebras an varied from four to five columns during the next few years of its existence. The staffs, tcxi, were smaller or larger in size, compared with the size of the paper. For a few years from 1906 to 1908, credit in rhetoric was given for reportorial work on The ' Xlebras an. In 1916 the paper became a six-column sheet and remained so until the last semester of the year 1919-1920, when it was shitted back to five columns because of lack of funds, Later it was again changed to six columns, but it was only at the beginning of the fall term of 1924 that The J ebrasXan was expanded to seven columns. A variety of styles have been used in writing for the paper and at last it is believed a true news style is being used. Some of the " news " stories of early days arc amusing to the journalist of today, .so quaint are the phrases. From 1901 to 1905 the old style of heading was used to a great extent — small. . hort heads with- out much distinction as to the relative importance of the stories. The other extreme was reached when the paper came out with four glaring doublecohimn heads on the front page, and this style was continued for more than a year. The staff of The ' N.ebrasXan at one time consisted merely of an editor, a business manager, and ri few reporters and assistants. In the year 192. -1924 the staff was made up of the editor, managing editor, and five news editors and a regular staff of reporters.

The increased size and service of The 7 ebras}{an demanded an enlarged staff. Reportorial work on the " Rag " is voluntary and serves as a journalism lahorator ' for students in the School of Journalism. The offices of The 7 ehras}{an were first at 2 " ) 6 North Eleventh Street, in 1892. Later they were moved to the University Puhli.shing Company, when The Hesperian and The 7 ebras}{an combined. Now, after numerous moves about the campus, both the editorial and business offices of The Daily TvJebrasJ an are now in the basement of University Hall.

Dawson, director of athletics and head football coach at Nebraska for the past three years, was forced to give up his duties at the University the early part of March or account of ill health. Dawson came to Nebraska in 1921 and during his three years of football coaching at the Husker institution has turned out grid teams that have ranked among the best in the country. Coach Dawson has played an im- portant roll in bringing Cornhusker athletics to their present high plane during his period of directorship here and has been largely responsible for the growth of University of Nebraska athletics to national promin- ence and recognition. Page 471 Contribution of Athletics to Good Citizenship 1 r : fi By Coach Ernest E. Bearg lELDING H. YOST, athletic director at Michigan, in a recent address said: " ■Primarily physical education and athletics serve to develop and maintain in all the students bodily health, strength and endurance, to the end that they may lead more useful lives. It is, however, further believed that in the measures undertaken for this end an avenue of approach is provided through which the students are influenced for good in mind and character as well as in body. Athletics bring out in those that participate many of the fine qualities that lie at the root of gcxid citizenship. In fact, in his athletics a boy learns citizenship. In his class room he may learn about citizenship when he studies political science, parliamentary law, history, etc., but in the various team games that he plays he learns the thing itself. " A candidate for an athletic team actually experiences the essence of citizenship for he is merely a part of a larger whole and must conduct himself to be the most good to the team rather than to himself. He must act in situations which teach him self-sacriiice, co-operation, loyalty, devotion to cause, discipline, determination to play by rule, and to win without boasting and lose without crabbing, at a time in his life when they are vzxy real and when they set their stamp indelibly upon his mind and character.

Seaton John K. Selleck Dr. A. J. Co.xt.s Herbert D. Gish Geori.e Holmes The Policy of the Athletic Board By Profe.ssor R. D. Scott • EFORE the Stadium was huilt, all athletic receipts and expenditures were treated as regular vIL University matters of finance and were handled without distinction through the University Finance Secretary. With the building of the Stadium, new and complicated problems arose. All athletic receipts as well as the Stadium itself formed a part of the security behind the bonds which were issued to provide building funds while pledged money was being collected. In addition to this, interest on the bonds as well as the expense necessary for the collection of stadium pledges became items to be deducted from athletic receipts. Since the Stadium had not been built through tax funds and since these financial obligations on University athletics seemed to be apart from ordinary University finances, the Board of Regents deemed It advisable to create a b - ard for the administration of University athletic affai rs. The Athletic Board of Control created by the Board of Regents is made up of eight members who serve without pay. Six of these members are University officers: the other two members represent related interests. The Uni- versity officers are the Executive Dean, the Finance Secretary of the Board of Regents, the Conference Representative, the University Purchasing Agent, the Manager of Student Activities and the Athletic Dirctor. The other members are the representatives of the Alumni AsstK ' iation and an officer of the trust company which issued the Stadium bonds. The men who constitute the membership of this board are all deeply interested in athletics, and as a means of promoting the v.-elfare of the University of Nebraska and Nebraska athletics, have formulated a well-defined athletic policy. Furst, It IS the belief of the board that proper athletic training and discipline is a large factor in the development of vigorous physical and moral character and that such training and discipline should be extended to the greatest possible number of students. In conformity of this idea, the board favors the expansion of intramural athletics to the greatest extent possible under existing conditions. Second, it is the opinion of the board that properly conducted athletic contests encourage participa- tion in these intramural sports and, in .iddition, help to develop a spirit of self-reliance, good sports- manship, courtesy and in the end, good citizenship, not only with the participant but within every member of the student body. The board, therefore, favors strongly contested and well-officered games played by bona fide students. It firmly opposes anything that is contrary to the spirit ot real amateur athletics in the strictest sense of the term. Regardless of customs and usages elsewhere, such, accord- ing to the policy of the board, is the standard for athletics at the University of Nebraska. It is furthermore the opinion of the board that the maintenance of this standard of athletics ' s largely dependent upon the character and the personality of the coaches in the various sports and upon the stability of their positions. The board therefore proposes to use every effort in an attempt to see that the right man is in each coaching position. It further proposes to make that man, as far as possible, a fixture in Nebraska athletics. PaKe 47.3 !8i I- ' l liTH P JW — Blaclx. M..lz n. lO. I. arm. Krk?:troni. Krii-mclmt ' yer.

The club publishes annually the Tales of the Cornhusl{er, sending it to all prospective Varsity material throughout the state, besides publishing a monthly news letter which is sent to over 650 " N " men. The organisation also publishes football and state high school tournament programs as well as presenting gold trophies to each member of a high schcxil championship team. The " N " Club has successfully completed one of the most active programs in its history during the past year. The fourth Tuesday of every month the club holds its regular meetings along with a get-together luncheon at the Chamber of Commerce. On this day every " N " man wears his sweater in memory- of Jack Best, Nebraska ' s Grand Old Man, who passed away the fourth Tuesday in January, 192. . The ideals of the " N " Club are to foster athletics at Nebraska, to bring the wearers of the " N ' closer together, to create true Cornhusker spirit, to promote fair play, to assist the coaches, and to encourage high school material to attend Nebraska. ■N " ROLL, 1924-1921 Football Elbert BIocxIkoo ' I Willart) Burnham Melvin ( ' ollins I.a l linn_-r Hubka Hiiirild Hutchinsnn JiohuKJ Locke Htty Mandaiy Avjird Manciary Cfcil Molzcn Doui las Myers Warren OKtien Frank Pospisil •John Rhotius Walter Scholz Edwin Weir, Capt. .Joe Wfir Joe Westoupal Eddie Steniun, Mgr.

STUDENT MANAGER SYSTEM Nebraska has used the Student Athletic Manager System for the past three years. The system provides for the election of one senior manager and two junior managers in each of the Major Sports by a managerial board composed of the Director of Athletics and his business assistant, coach and manager of the sport, and chairman of the University Eligibility Committee. At the opening of each sport season the manager calls for sophomore candi- dates for the position of assistant manager in that sport the following year. At the close of he sesaon the man- agerial board selects two assistant managers from these sophomore candidates for the following year. In the middle of the sport season the board selects one of these assistant managers to become junior manager for the remainder of that year and to act as senior manager the following season. Managers, assistant managers and sophomore candi- dates arc governed by the same eligibility rules as the athletes themselves.

The organisation was founded in 1921 for the purpose of promoting spirit and pep for all Husker athletic activities as well as to create a closer relationship between competing universities. The Corn Cobs during the past year have met and entertained every football team playing in Lincoln, besides fostering large attendance at the grid rallies by pre-rally sorority and fraternity house visits. The Corn Cobs staged stunts between the halves of every home football game and several of the comic entertainments met with much approval. The organisation is self-supporting and the members contributed to the athletic treasury by selling programs at football games, the basket- ball tournament, and the track meets. Every member made the trip to Kansas when Nebraska played the Jayhawkers on foreign soil and assisted the Kansas chapter of Pi Epsilon Pi in carr ' ing out their stunt during the half rest period. With the returns being exceptionally large during the past year, the Corn Cobs expect to accompany the football team to Illinois early next fall. Besides the athletic spirit-building, the Corn Cobs exhibited their stage talent by giving a short dramatic act in the nature of a three-part comedy University Night.

" — Theodore Roosevelt. ii Vmhv ni The New Coach Head Football Coach Ernest E. Bearg yr CET Coach Ernest E. Bearg, newly elected head JL toothall coach at Nebraska. Coach Bearg, who hails from the University of Illinois, where he was first assistant to veteran mentor Bob Zuppke, comes to Nebraska upon the resignation of Fred T. Dawson as football tutor. Bearg is a capable coach, a man of sterling character, and a real leader of men. While at Illinois Bearg had full charge of the Illini backfield. It is the renowned " Red " Grange that gives Bearg credit for the major part of his phenomenal suc- cess on the gridiron and other Big Ten gndsters are equally enthusiastic in their unlimited praise for Ne- braska ' s new coach. Bearg ' s athletic record is a noteworthy one. He at- tended Washburn College where he made his football letter for four years. Following graduation he took coaching courses at Chicago and Harvard. In 191 S he was chosen coach and athletic director at Washburn and the following year he began his work at Illinois where he was freshman coach for but one year before being named assistant to Zuppke. With Coach Bearg at the helm, Nebraska followers expect the Cornhusker grid to overflow with perfection and accomplishment. Spring Practice Coach Bearg arrived in Lincoln the middle of February to make preliminary plans for spring practice. The spring drills were launched early in March and continued until spring vacat on. During the spring workouts the new tutor in- troduced many new methods which met with favor among the candidates. Bearg is a strong believer of aerial play mixed with straight foot- bail, thus a strong running attack, and from the daily spring exhibitions it appears that the new mentor will develop a fast and dangerous back- field combination as well as a strong forward wall from v ' ing to wing. At the close of the spring practice, which was perhaps one of the toughest introductory periods ever staged at N • braska. Coach Bearg announced that the f.ill training would start about September H — but three weeks before the opening game with Illinois.

Weir, one of the country ' s outstandinj, ' linemen of the year, the 1924 University of Nebraska football team made a most commendable showing, considering the fact it was defeated in its first two struggles of the season. In fact the only real black mark on the season ' s record was the 14 to 7 de- feat by Oklahoma, but such was to be expected as the game followed the opening struggle of the year with Illinois. The Cornhuskcrs were defeated by the Orange and Blue. 9 to 6. and again went down in defeat on the following Saturday by Oklahoma. It was then that Nebraska showed that indominable fighting spirit which has made its teams famous in foot- ball annals. Colgate, one of the strongest elevens of the east during the early stages of the season, journeyed to Lincoln and just when the majority of football enthusiasts thought Nebraska was in for a trouncing Captain Weir and his teammates rose to the occasion and won from the easterners. 34 to 7, in one of the biggest upsets of the year. Following the unexpected but welcome victory over Colgate. Coach Dawson took his team toi Lawrence and Kansas fell victim to the driving attack of the Cornhuskers, 14 to 7. It was a bitterly fought but cleanly played game with Kansas threatening all the time in the last half with long forward passes. On the following week-end. Nebraska was put to the supreme test by meeting Missouri, which had run rough shod over its opponents and numbered among its victims Chicago, which was beaten 3 to 0. Again Captain Weir and his fellow players rose to the occasion and romped off the field on the long end ot a 14 to 6 score. Nebraska ' s next opponent was Notre Dame and the team which afterward was acclaimed the National champion and completed its season without defeat, was victor over the Cornhuskers. 34 to 6. It was no disgrace to have been beaten by a team of Notre Dames caliber and it is a well known tact Coach Rockne ' s eleven had been pointed for this game throughout the season. Special stress had been placed upon winning from Nebraska because of unexpected defeats administered to Notre Dame in other years. Coach Dawson and his splendid players soon forgot the Notre Dame game, prepared for the Kansas Aggies with the old Nebraska spirit, with the result the Aggies were defeated, 24 to 0. On Thanksgiving day. the Oregon Aggies were beaten 14 to in the final game of the season. There are many Nebraska alumni living in and near Chicago who claim Nebraska was entitled to an equal share of the Missouri Valley Conference championship along with Missouri. No effort is made by this writer to settle the argument as it is a matter for the contending students and alumni to debate. Generally, however, Missouri was recognized as the champion and went to the Pacific coast as the title holder. The Nebraska eleven was composed of some sterling warriors. Aside from Captain Weir, who was practically the unanimous choice of ' all critics for the All-Aiiierican eleven, Rhodes was a splendid halfback. It was his straight dash through the line that gave Nebraska its only score against Illinois. For a time it looked as if this brilliant performance would wm the game, but a successful forward pass and place kick by Britton turned the tide in Illinois ' tavor in the second halt. Bloodgood was an excellent quarterback and Myers a dependable fullback. Robertson and Collins held down the flanks in a satisfactory manner, while the general play of the five middle men was consistent most of the year. The team was efficiently coached by Fred Dawson, who has done a lot for not only Nebraska football, but athletics in general as well. Dawson received some valuable assistance from Henry Schulte, the successful Cornhusker track and field coach. With Ernest Bearg taking over the coaching position in 1925 and with Nebraska meeting Notre Dame at Lincoln on Thanksgiving day, a great Cornhusker football year should result. Caliber of football as played by Ne- braska is a credit to the game. The players are gentlemen on and off the field. They conduct themselves in a sports- manlike manner in the heat of struggles and when their playing days are over they have learned that some of the things taught in a football game are worth while after all.

The charging Nebraska forwards and backs persistently smothered the Illinois back during this contest, driving through the interference and dropping the notorious " Red " of the Grange family to the turf ere he reached the line of scrimmage. It was during this contest that Nebraska waged a superb defen- sive fight — one that is seldom excelled on any gridiron. Had the attempted dropkick by Bloodgotid in the third period been true, the denial of a win might have resulted in a knotted final tally.

Outclassing the Huskers in weight and gridiron experience, the Sooner gladiators overlooked nothing in encompassing Nebraska ' s defeat. Oklahoma scored during the early first quarter when an Indian wingster sifted through the lighter Nebraska line, blocked Bloodgood " s kick, and downed the ball back of the Husker goal line. Trailing on the zero end of a 14 to score at the intermission, the Cornhuskers rallied during the third period and crossed the Oklahoma goal, but in this invasion the Huskers shot their bolt and were unable to repeat. Oklahoma reeled off eight first downs during the mix and Nebraska accounted for six. The contest was an upset indeed and costly for the losers, since it deprived Nebraska of its otherwise Valley supremacy. THE BACKFIELD Oklahoma Fails at Place Kicif Bloodgood Myers PaKo 184 Rhodes Breads Through the First Line Nebraska 33, Colgate 7 QEBRASKA spoke its piece and did its stuff on October IStli against the Colgate University football eleven from Hamil- ton, N. Y., when the Huskers ran rampant over the east- erners and copped a final reckoning of 22 to 7. The game was replete with thrills, with the Cornhusker runners planting the oval on the scoring side of the Colgate goal on five occasions. John " Choppy " Rhodes accounted for two of Nebraska ' s touchdowns, scoring each by dint of sensational sprints from beyond the middle of the rectangle. Collins scored when he intercepted a Colgate pass and spurted sixty yards, while Bloodgood raced twenty units for the fourth marker. It was in this contest that Roland Locke electrified twenty thousand when he intercepted a pass from Tyron. the spectacular Colgate halfback, and darted 90 yards across the final chalkline. Two additional pointers were added when Center Westoupal blocked an opposing kick which resulted in a safety. In the fourth period Eddie Tyron, the whole show for Colgate in the ground gaining department, wriggled his way through the Husker forward wall punctuating the score sheet. Nebraska decisively outclassed the invaders " » •» ' in virtually every department of the great fall pastime, yet the top heavy score was due chiefly to the individual work of the Husker backfield.

The forward passing tactics featured the play of both teams throughout the mix and kept the final reckoning in doubt until the final pistol shot. The defeat of the Jayhawks added one more to the long string of reverses which Kansas has sustained in its battles with Nebraska on Lawrence soil. Kansas has yet to win from the Huskers at home. After two pointless periods Nebraska scored when Robertson scooped up a Bloodgood punt fumbled by Hodges, and ran thirty yards for the first tally. A long pass, Rhixies to Collins, was responsible for the winning score late in the third period. The line defense by Nebraska was too powerful for the K. U. eleven to make progress by straight football so Kansas sv itched to the overhead play, which netted them their only touchdown late in the final period. While Kansas waged a strenuous battle for final honors, Nebraska ' s victory was clean-cut and quite decisive enough to silence all e.xplanations intending to cast discredits on the merits of the Corn- husker success.

It was the Cornhuskers who displayed superior prowess on the grid on the afternoon of November first against the Missouri Tigers and who exhibited enough fighting ability to outlast the Bengals and battle to a 14 to 6 win over the 1924 Valley pigskin champions. Heralded as the greatest of all Missouri elevens in ,1 score of years and looking that part during the first period of the tense combat, the Tigers literally tore through the Nebraska line and charged across the Cornhusker goal for a well earned touch- down before the initial stanna closed. The Tiger flash soon be- came intoxicating and Nebraska gladiators battled their way out of the depths of threatening defeat, plunging and driving their way to a thrilling triumph. John Rhodes and Elbert Bloodgood were the dazzling performers for the winners. Bloodgood ' s forty-yard return of a Missouri punt enabled Nebraska to score, after a series of irresistable plunges by Rhodes and Myers, and knotted the count before the close of the half. Rhodes repeated the touchdown ac- complishment in the final quarter and the educated toe boosted the total to 14 counters. Captain Bond was the bright light for Missouri. Doubtless the thrilling situation during this contest was unequalled m the Memorial Stadium during the entire 1924 season. It was a gruelling twist and both teams displayed exceptional football. fiB ' 9=53»-M, Bloodgood Aiitl, the Tryfor-Point OcDEN.

When Ne- braska journeyed hack to South Bend on the fourteenth of November, the Rockne men, with the noted Four Horsemen, up- held their season rating and romped away with a decisive 34 to 6 victory in easy fashion. The Huskers saved their pride only by scoring first when successive fumbles by the Irish seconds, who started the contest in the usual Rockne mysterj ' -system fashion, enabled Myers to lug the oval across and smear the Notre Dame score sheet in the first quarter. Following the initial moments of play in which Nebraska scored, the Irish backfield literally ran rings around the western opponents, taking sweet revenge for the two reverses handed them by the Cornhuskers the two years before.

A series of aggravating fumbles and penalties at the outset per- sistently balked the Nebraska offense until late in the second period when the Huskers gained possession of the ball and Quarterback Bloodgood ' s educated toe neatly executed a forty-yard dropkick, sending the spheroid through the uprights for Nebraska ' s iirst counters. Fol- lowing the inaugural of the scoring, Locke dashed seventy yards for the first touchdown before half time. During the second half Nebraska opened up a clever aerial attack which netted two more touchdowns through passes from Rhodes to Collins and Bronson to Rhodes. Collins raced twenty-five yards to score while Rhodes dogged the turf fifty-five units to the goal zone ♦. . . 1 3: J. Wfir, Guard R.

The invaders pitted a powerful, hard-fighting eleven against the Nebraskans and it was only superior speed of the Husker backs that was the deciding factor in the curtain contest of the re- cently deceased grid season. Nebraska and the Aggies playeJ three periods of hard fcxitball without scoring before Roland Locke and Elbert Bloodgood of the red-jerseyed aggregation were able to plant the leather in the end zone. The first score came when Locke broke for a sensational run and the second immediately following when Bloodgood snared a pass from M.mdary and galloped to the tally line. With this win Nebraska closed the victories and a trio of reverses. Considering the tough schedule and the fact that Coach Dawson worked with comparatively green material, the season was successful from every viewpoint.

T r Tnrr r r: • Season of 1925 ¥ n ' Andruson Guard ' ITTLE needs to ne said about the brand of basketball that Nebraska cagesters exhibited during the 1 92 5 hoop season except that the Husker quintet could not be omitted from titular consideration from the start, and that Nebraska was feared by every court aggregation in the Valley. The season was unusu ally successful with the Husker basketeers turning in a final slate of fourteen wins and three conference defeats, the fourth reverse being at the hands of the Hillyards of St. Joseph in a pre-season test. Praise for the Cornhusker ' s commendable show- ing should be bestowed in even measure upon Veteran Coach W. G. Kline, vv ' ho developed a court combination that brought positive results. It might be mentioned here that had Nebraska been able to break even with Kansas, a Valley title would have been in dispute between the two sch(X)ls; but, as it is, it seems that Kansas is the ol " man of the Jinx family when it comes to Nebraska winning basketball games from the Jayhawkers. There was no lack of material when first call was sounded earl) ' in December and with seven letter men from last season the outlook was indeed bright for a winning season. Coach Kline faced a task supreme in picking his regulars and a differ- ent lineup started each of the opening contests. However, Cap- tain Volz and Tipton cinched the guard berths early in the season and Captain- elect Goodson held down the pivot post regularly, leaving the forward positions in question throughout the season. Usher, veteran forward from 1924, and Eckstrom started at the forwards most frequently while Klepser, letter man of ' 23 who re- turned to school, and Smaha, a sophomore promise, alternated in the foremost shoes. Black, Beerkle, and Andreson answered the substitute roll during the season while a handful of candidates afforded the Varsity plenty of competition throughout the entire season. During the holiday recess the Klinemen journeyed to St. Joseph, Missouri, to meet the fast HiUyard five in a pre-season mix and were set back by the show-me crew. By the time the regular conference scramble opened, the Huskers were in top shape and copped a trio of encounters before meeting the seemingly invincible " Fog " Allan five from Kansas. The next quartet of tests was a repetition of the first with the Jayhawkers again breaking a triple win streak. The following night Washington downed the Huskers on the foreign court 24 to 20 for the third and last defeat of the 192 ' conference card. From then on Nebraska was unbeatable. The Klinemen made an enviable record, finishing up the season with a string of eight victories, five of the wins coming on an eight-day road trip the latter part of February. With seven letter men back to start the coming cage season Nebraska .should again undergo a winning season. In 1923 Nebraska finished the Valley in third place, this year in second, and who knows what next? Captain-elect Goodson, Klepser, Eckstrom, Andreson, Black, Beerkle and Smaha will again be seen in the abbreviated uniforms in 1926. However, the services of Captain Voh, Tipton and Usher will be a decided loss to the team when the next campaign opens. Bl-I-RKLL Forward Black Forward Page 497 FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Curnhusker basketball fans admire the Varsity with its clock-like perfection, and its display of a smashing offense and tight defense, which is feared and respected by all Missouri Valley teams and coaches. Yet. this same perfection was only acquired after hours of coaching, training, and opposition. Most of the enthusiasts know who does the playing and coaching, but few get a chance to see the men who help the Varsity to acquire this endurance and perfection, the Frosh. Under the coaching of Owen Frank the Freshmen have worked nightly and have afforded the Varsity tough medicine in numerous scrimmages. Over a hundred freshmen responded to the call of Coach Frank at the begin- ning of the season. After about three weeks the squad was cut down to about twenty-live men. Among the personnel of the 1925 freshmen cagesters were several former all-state high school basketeers and with such luminaries to augment the list of men back next year, Nebraska should again rank high in the Conference standings. STATE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS Omaha Technical high school wrote its name on the Nebraska high school athletic scroll as interscholastic basketball champions for the third time in the past five years at the close of the 1925 cage tourney when the Book- keepers defeated Lincoln high 13 to 12 in the final Class A contest on the Coliseum floor. It was the first time that Lincoln has ever been defeated in the championship tilt. The Tech victory came in the final minutes of play after the Capital City lads had led most of the titular mix. The following are the Class champions: Class A. Omaha Technical; Class B. St. Paul; Class C. Indianola; Class D, Arlington; Class E. Stockham: Class F. Halhim.

Schulte, more commonly known as " Indian " in Valley athletic circles, needs no introduction — his track records and accomplishments speak for themsleves. Schulte is recognized as the greatest track and field coach in the Missouri Valley an d considered as one of the greatest tutors along those lines in America, having developed some of the greatest track performers in recent Olympiads. Coach Schulte came to Nebraska in 1919 after a successful career at Missouri, and during his six years of tutorship has turned out the Missouri Valley outdoor track champions for the past four seasons — the first time in the history of Valley sports that any school has copped titular honors four consecutive times. During the recent indoor season the Schultemen won the Valley indoor championship for 1925 besides taking a goodly share of indoor laurels at the Illinois Relay games the latter part of February. The secret of Coach Schultes success has been attributed to his methods of creating interest in daily competition. It might also be added that when Nebraska was defeated by Stanford University at Palo Alto during the spring recess, it was the fourth defeat in dual compel for Schulte in his twenty .seasons of track coaching, and two of these defeats have been administered on the Pacific coast. 1924 Mi. .sonri Valley Conference TracJj and Field Cliampions Paee 500 Hatch Leaves the Board ■Red " Layton Bloodgood Track and Field Record Holders 100-yard dash— Ed Smith, 1922: 9 8-10 sec. 220-yard dash— Ed Smith. 1922: 21 3-10 sec. 440-yard dash— Byron McMahon, 1919: 49 8-10 sec. 880-yard Relay — Smith, Noble.

During the indoor seaso n NcHraska contested for honors in the K. C. A. C. invitation meet, the Illinois Relays and the Valley Indoor. Individual tracksters came to the front in both the introductory twists and Nebraska landed second place after scoring heavily in the sprints at the Valley indoor compet. being headed only by Missouri. After a long rest period the outdoor season opened with the Kansas Relays in which Turner established a new Varsity high jump record by clearing the bar at 6 feet 3 inches. Besides taking a goodly share of cups and medals homeward from the Kansas affair Nebraska forced Northwestern to break a two-mile record to win that relay event. The Husker half mile relay team composed of Cntes. Hatch. Hein and Locke won first honors and the same sprint combination took second in the 440-yard relay headed only by Occidental of California. The following week the local tracksters hit the rattlers to compete at the Drake Relays where the relay teams composed of Locke, Hein, Bloodgood. Hatch, Crites. Whipperman, Higgins and Gardner took their share of the spoils in the four relay events. Nebraska ' s first dual meet ended 9(.i to 41 over Kansas and the second dual affair resulted in another one- sided score over the Kansas Aggies. It was in the latter meet that Irwin clipped the century in 9:08 and the 220 within 1-10 second of the world mark. Locke ran second to the Aggie sprint phenomenon in both dashes. In the Aggie dual test Gleason broke the Varsity pole vault record and established a new mark at 12 feet 3 5-4 inches. The curtain dropped on another most successful track season the latter part of May when Nebraska was again crowned Valley track champions. Nebraska entertained the Valley tracksters in 1924 with the conference meet being held on the Stadium track. The discus and javelin were the only events that Nebraska failed to score in while taking its fourth consecutive title.

KHne returned to that business of tutoring Nebraska baseball artists, the Cornhusker diamond performers developed a system of team play which brought positive results. The veteran coach developed a fast fielding aggregation of sandlotters, but for the most part the performers were unable to hit at the necessary times. The Klinemen finished the season at a balance, winning eight games and losing the same number. How- ever, during the spring recess trip to the southland the Huskers were somewhat handicapped on account of the climatic advantage of the opposing schools. It cannot be denied that Coach Kline developed a fast college nine during the 1924 season and with veteran material to work with, Nebraska should finish the coming season near the top of the upper division in Valley standings. iS PaKC .

Coach Clapp started the season with but three eligible letter men, Highlcy, Blore and Captain Skinner. Skinner was unable to take part in but three meets and was forced to remain idle for the remainder of the season with a bag leg, while Highley was unable to start the first match, being entered for the first time against the Iowa Staters. With the exception of these three performers, who worked but part time, the entire squad was composed of green material. Coach Clapp developed several new- comers into clever artists on the padded canvas by the end of the season, but these comers lacked experi- ence and were easily eliminated in the championship meets. Four letters were awarded at the close of the season. The quartet qualifying for the recognition being Captain Skinner, Captain-elect Highley, Blore and Lundy. It is likely that one more dual meet will be added to the Husker slate, making six dual meets and two championship contests for 1926. With a wealth of material in the ranks and interest gradually increasing in the wrestling game, Nebraska should again have a well moulded mat squad for next season according to veteran mentor " Doc " Clapp. Bl URl Ll ' NDY K 7 iebras}{a vs. Minnesota — Start oj 5 Pound Match PaKC 511 - ' r f-r-tr . : .

The feature match of the championship meeting was in the final 158 pound group. Lockabaugh. Olympic finalist and Oklahoma Aggie captain, was pitted against Prunty, Iowa State captain. Lockabaugh used a variety of holds on the Ames pilot, but was unable to pin his opponent to the canvas, taking the match on a time advant- age of more than eight minutes.

Coach Frank Hunton conducted the training throughout the swimming season and developed the first winning team that Nebraska has had in the four seasons ot swimming competition at the local institution. At the start of the past season the Husker tutor was unable to get candidates out for the team, due to the handicap of being without a university pool, and was forced to develop the available material witli but three letter men as a nucleus. Swimming IS rapidly increasing in popularity as an indoor winter sport at Nebraska and it will doubtless con- tinue to meet with favor m the future. The Nebraska tank representatives had a sjhed ilc of four meets at the start of the 1925 season, but w ' ere forced to cancel the dual alfair with ihe Omaha Athletic Club on account of amateur rulings and were unable to partake in the Missouri Valley champion- ship swim at St. Louis on account of insufficient funds to send the contestants. However. Nebraska did win the two dual contests against Ames and the Kansas Aggies. An unusual happening took place in that both these dual meets ended in a knotted score, 34 to 34, and Nebraska was awarded the meet in both cases by winning the Relay event. The A. A. U. ruling states that in case a dual meet ends in a tie, the meet .shall be awarded to the team winning the relay and. thanks to Plate. Kirk- bride, Hunton, and Laughlin, the Nebraska relay artists, both contests were won through that ruling. Four letters were awarded in swimming during the past season. Frank Hunton. who acted as tutor of the swimming squad, won his recognition for the third time by swimming the da.sbes and on the relay team. Captain Norman Plate won his letter in the plunge for distance, breaststroke and relay: Kirkbride by swimming the 220 and 100-yard free style events and on the relay team, while Laughlin qualified m the breastroke. 50-yard free style and the relay. Prospects look brighter for .swimming at Nebraska in the near future, due to the winning season in 19 25 and with the Inter-Fraternity swim being fostered, interest in the tank sport should be greatly stimulated Coach Fran Hunton t k Captdin ' S.orman Plate iP 1925 Sit ' iiiiiniiig Team Page 514 Buck Ilgen K ' lr bride Meet Summaries KANSAS AGGIES VS.

Liiug iliri I The tencers Fencing Nebraska fencers failed to partake in any inter-collegiate competitive meets during the 1925 season and hence no Varsity letter awards were made to the duelers. However. Coach Clapp maintains that Nebraska will be strongly represented next year with several bright prospects showing class during try-outs during the past season. Among the most outstanduig fencers are Mcrriam. Reed and Clendenin, while Krieg showed promising ability in the saber matches late in the season. The Huskcr fencing mentor debated upon sending several representatives to the Western Inter-collegiate contests at Minneapolis the latter part of March, but decided that the entrants were too strong for green material. With several performers Irom 192 ' back next year fencing should stand out among Huskcr minor sports in the near future. Boxing While boxing has not been recognized as an official Varsity sport at Nebraska and no letters are awarded to those participating in the manly art. there is much interest manifested in the mitt shoving game. This is shown bv the fact that there were nearly a hundred men registered in the boxing instruction group during the past year and from the ranks of those prospects several individuals developed into good ringmen. At the time of this writing there is some talk of staking a University boxing tournament and crowning campus champs in the several weight divisions. Nebraska is fortunate in having an excellent boxing instructor in Harry Reed. Through the efforts of Coach Reed. Nebraska was represented in the A. A. U. ring mee t at Omaha in 1924 and Husker mittsters furnished strong competition in the classes in which they were entered. Although boxing is barred from inter-collegiate competition bv Missouri Valley rules, it is hoped that Nebraska will have a regular squad and gain recognition in the fistic game 111 the near future.

No letters were awarded in tennis during the past season and the only letter man on the 1924 squad was Cap- tain Don Elliott, who was forced to remain idle most ot the season due to ilhiess. Elliott won the Nebraska State tennis crown in the singles in 1923 and paired with Bob Russell, also a University racqueteer, won the doubles title of the state. During the past tennis season Nebraska was able to keep but one booked dual meet and that, with Ames on foreign soil, proved fatal. Ames ttwk all the matches from the Husker netsters and due to weather conditions Nebraska was unable to attempt a home reverse in the form of a return meet at Lin- coln. Due to the unsuccessful season there were no tennis letters made. In the Missouri Valley tennis tournament, which was won by Kansas, Nebraska representatives were all eliminated in the opening rounds of play. Husker courtmen entered in the Valley compet were Elliott, Shallberg, Colby, and Schildneck. The Valley singles artists entering the semi-finals included Rogers and Glaskin of Kansas, Bierman of Washington, and Young of Ames. In the doubles finals Page and Young of Ames met Rogers and Glaskin of Kansas Golf Those Nebraska challengers of " Old Man Bogey " finished a most success- ful golf season in 1924 by winning second place in the Missouri Valley golf tournament for the second consecutive time. The Valley meet, which was held over the Lincoln Country Club course the latter part of May, went to Kansas with a team card of 1,380 points, with Nebraska a close second and Drake, 192 3 champs, finishing third. The Husker golfers participating were Captain Whitten, Vette, Henkleman and Ready. Besides landing the rupper-up position in the Valley affair, Nebraska decisively downed Drake in a dual meet held May 16 on the local turf. The final count was in favor of Nebraska 16 to ' . Fred Vette, new member of the Varsity squad, was high point scorer with a card of 161 in and out with Whitten a single stroke behind. Four letters were awarded in the minor sport with Captain Whitten, Captain-elect Vette, Henkelman and Ready qualifying for awards. Golf is gradually coming into its own at Nebraska and with plenty of promising candidates in school the 1925 season will doubtless be highly successful.

Keen competition and rivalry marked the Inter-Fraternity sport year of 1925 and interest in the ntra-mural athletics sponsored by the " N " Club is rapidly increasing at Nebraska. The annual basketball tourney for the first time held at the opening of the cage season, was a near repetition of the 1924 tourney with the Delta Upsilon quintet defeating the Delta Tau Delta five in the finals for the second consecutive time. Sigma Phi Epsilon decisive- ly won the annual baseball tourney last spring by defeating the Phi Alpha Delta nine in the finals 6 to 1 after shutting out three teams in earlier rounds of play. The annual fraternity wrestling meet was won by Pi Kappa Alpha, being forced in the titular matches by Alpha Gamma Rho, who finished in second place. Fraternity tracksters were afforded plenty of competition on the cinder path during the past spiked shoe season with three titles being decided — Pi Kappa Alpha winning the outdoor track meet. Delta Tau Delta copping the first annual Relay Games, while the cross country run ended in a knot between Sigma Phi Epsilon and Pi Kappa Alpha for high honors. The track meet was perhaps the closest in years with the three top teams holding po.sitions throughout. Pi Kappa Alpha, the winners, piled up a total of 18,199 points, but 123 points ahead of Delta Tau Delta who finished in second place. Four new fraternity records were established during the carnival, with Daven- port of Delta Tau Delta being high point winner of the meet.

Women ' s Athletic Association s ' HE school year of 1 924-2 i has been a year of growth and development for the Women ' s J Athletic Association of the University of Nebraska. The National Conference of A. C. A. C W., held at Berkeley last year, gave definite expression to the modern tendencies in college women ' s athletics. The Nebraska Association is only one of a great number of associa- tions throughout the country experiencing a like incentive this year to put into practice the pro- gressive movements of the National Conference. At the Central Sectional Conference of A. C. A. C. W. held at Urbana, Illinois, in April, the Nebraska delegation was proud of their contribution when they were able to display their new constitution. For Nebraska this new constitution embodies all the progress of the National Con- ference. The women of Nebraska who are participating actively in sports, feel a certain responsibility for the establishing of athletic standards for women. When the college women of America succeed in establishing standards for women, up to which they can be held, with the participation of all women made possible, and not limited to a few super-women who can take men ' s standards as their own, they will have accomplished something of permanent value for all women. For a great many years v omen have been handicapped in athletic participation by having only men ' s standards to govern their activities. With this realization, the college women of America have developed a nation-wide movement to establish athletic standards for women. The Nebraska W. A, A. hopes to make its gymnasium and athletic fields here in the Uni- versity a laboratory in which standards for women participating in athletics can be developed. It hopes to be able to give to the women of the state of Nebraska something of definite value as the result of its activities. Only as it fulfills its responsibility to the women of the state of Nebraska, can it hope to contribute anything of value to all the women in athletics in the United States. PaKC .120 Officers Eleanor Flatemersch President Our president is a junior in the department of physical edu- cation. She comes from MJIford. Last sprinjr she was elected vice-president of the organiza- tion and this fall, when the piesident-elect could not leturn. she assumed the duties of that office.

The progress and development of the Nebraska Association are the result of the interest and helpful advice given the girls by the members of the Women ' s Department of Physical Education. Mabel Lee, director of the Department of Physical Education for Women, is an authority on inter-collegiate athletics for women. It was Miss Lee ' s careful work on the question of Varsity Competition for Women that made the Athletic Conference of American College Women in session at Berkeley last year, go on record as opposed to all varsity competition for women. Another one of Miss Lee ' s many interests centers around dancing. She has directed many lovely pageants dur- ing her career as a college physical direc- tor. This year she very generously took time from her many other duties m the direct the dance festival given by W. A. A. Miss Lee is a graduate of Coe College in Iowa, and received her pro- fessional training at Welle.slev. Mabel Lee. Director department to plan and Dllla Marie Clark A. .si,sta7it Director Delia Marie Clark, assistant director of the Women ' s Department, dates her interest in women ' s athletics at Nebraska from her under- graduate days here. She won her " N " in the days when the Chancellor presented all letters to the lucky winners at a special convocation. Each year Miss Clark offers a silver loving cup to the winner of the apparatus contest, which she sponsors. While this is not a W. A. A. activity, a W. A. A. girl always wins the cup. Miss Clark holds her A.B. degree from Nebraska, and she has attended summer school at Columbia Uni- versity. Mary R. Wheeler has the official title iif Director of Women ' s Sports. She is greatly interested in W. A. A. ' s. She has been president of one and has attended the last two national conferences of A. C. A. C. W. as ,1 delegate from Beloit College in Wisconsin.

A. during the short time that she has been here. Miss Wheeler comes from Beloit College, where she received her B.S. degree. The Women ' s Athletic Association is greatly indebted to these women of the Department of Physical Education, who so unselfishly devote themselves to the cause of the athletic interests of the women of Nebraska.

Page 529 Schiu-bfl Wright Safford Kess Chapman Kiciwell Roberts McFerrin Abbntt Heinianik Schaefer Zuibauyh Fullmer Hockey nOCKEY was the initial sport of the fall season. Late last September the familiar cry of " ground, sticks " could be heard on the bully-off as the teams were warminij into action. Soccer was shifted into second place on the sport calendar because it was decided that it was a more appropriate cold weather game. It is hard to control the hockey clubs with gloves on or with cold hands. The prevalence of knocks and bumps, especially shin bumps, made it neces- sary for the association to purchase shin guards for the fullbacks and big cricket guards for the goal keepers. Ester Robinson held the position of hockey manager on the W. A. A. board. A new type of coaching was brought to Nebraska for this sport when Miss Wheeler brought her ideas from Beloit College, Wisconsin. The teams were put through stick drills, drills in dribbling, long clean shots, trick turn.?, and . tick work which would fool the opponent at the beginning of each practice. The sophomore team, following the start they made the previous year in winning champion- ships, were true to form and took the honors by winning two games in the tournament and tying a third. This was by no means an ca ' ily won championship for the freshman team also made a good record when it tied two games and won one. A new type of tournament was tried out this year. Instead of making drawings, each class team played every other class team. The one winning the most games was the champion team.

It was a real elfort to give a mighty kick and still retain one ' s ctiiiilibrium on the slippery ice or snow. This cold -eason saw an increased number of sport enthusiasts, however. Indeed, most of the feminine sportsters looked as if they had been the original inspiration for the Indian chief ' s name. " Five Coats. " Coats, sweaters, mufflers, stocking caps — they had them all — and, bundled in great quantities of them, they threw themselves into the face of nature, a cold blizzardy one. and fought for their class teams. These girls deserve honorable mention for their fortitude while suffering from broken toes, iced noses, and aching ears. This year there were enough girls for four first teams and two second teams. In addition to that number, about eighteen girls received squad points tor getting in their required ten practices. This is Nebraska s best record. Credit for this goes to Miss Wheeler for her excellent coaching and to Ella Nucrnberger for her splendid management of her sport. The class tourney was a close tight. In the semi-finals the seniors won from the juniors . -4 and the sopho- mores from the freshmen 2-0. In the tinals the seniors tied the sophomores 1-1. HermaneU Zorbauj;)!

The freshmen were not far behind them in good material, however, for five of their members made the honor squad and they were de- feated in only one game — the one with the champions. The honor squad was a squad of the most excellent players in basketball. They were judged for their technical skill, sportsmanship, spirit, and improvement of playing during the season. This squad gave an exhibition game during the High Schixil Tournament for all persons in the state who were interested in basketball for women. Training rules were introduced for this sport. The players gave up eating between meals, drink- ing coffee or tea, and staying up late nights tor long hours of sleep, three regular meals each day, and general hygienic living. The three-court game replaced the two-court method of playing. Miss Wheeler spent the six weeks practice in perfecting the passing and improving the technique of the players. Tentative class teams were chosen before the class tournament and after the tournament the awards for first team points were announced. This gave the coach an opportunity to judge the tournament work of the players in choosing the first team members. Second team members are always used for substitutes on the first team, and, should they show unusual ability under tourney competition, they may be then awarded first team points. The drawings for the class tournament were so arranged that each team played every other team. ra c .i3i tuiiinaif s • ..•; {f.

West ■ Baseball - HE baseball season of 1924 gave the freshmen of that year their first chance at champion- V, J ships. Since that time it has been practically impossible to stop them. The only thing that has kept them from running away with all the honors was a tie game in soccer last fall. Now they are sophomores and more dangerous than ever for they are becoming accus- tomed to playing together. To return to our baseball, we might again bemoan our fate at having to play on a diamond with a mere twenty-seven foot baseline. Every other hit is a home run. This spring we are playing our indoor baseball in the gymnasium and the fielders will not be required to run to the Teachers College building for balls while the batter makes a home run. It will be harder to run up large scores. Later in the season we want to have an outdoor tournament using a larger diamond, a small ball, and mitts. Of course there are some girls who are skeptical about this kind of baseball, but, in the main, they are anxious to give the real American game a fair trial. The prospects are excellent with Louise Branstad for manager and almost a hundred women interested in the sport. ipi oun f -0. Page 533 Dancing OANCING as a major spurt at Nebraska lias developed during the past four years until it ranks as one of the most popular activities of the Women ' s Athletic Association. The Dance Festival, the annual perlorm- ance of the W. A. A., has outgrown the narrow confines of the Temple Theatre .and foi " the first time the performance has been planned for out of doors. The Festival this year is offered as a part of the Commence- ment Week program. Natural dancing has been introduced this year as a part of the physical education program. The introduction of natural dancing has made it possible for women with no previous technical training in dancing to take part in the sport. Barefoot dancing is a very lovely form of dancing, and for the first time, our Nebraska women have been made to realise its appeal. A spring story, the " Awakening of the Crocus, " furnishes the theme for this year ' s festival. The life of the Crocus is followed through a whole year; the spirit of summer is danced out in the story by stately summery girls, and the Crocus falls asleep. An autumn Elfin comes to scatter leaves on her. The winter comes, and the snow buries the Crocus. Spring at last is ushered in. and the Sun comes dancing in to wake the Crocus with a kiss. The Festival ends with a celebration of the coming of Spring. Dorothy Dougan is the dancing manager of this year. Miss Mable Lee of the physical education department will direct the festival with the manager ' s help. The Women ' s Athletic Association hopes that this festival can be given a permanent place on the Commencement Week program each year. Psec 334 Chapman ZnihaULili Ke-ss WriKtit Abl)c.it Safford McFcnin Hennanek Volleyball VOLLEYBALL is a new sport with us, having been started as a minor sport in the spring of 1924. The year previous it was played, but no W. A. A. points were awarded for activity in the games. During the first season that it was offered for points, there were about fifty girls out for the new sport and, due to the enthusiastic coaching of Miss Clark, much interest was aroused. The tournament was played during the month of May, the class of 1927 carryini; off the victory. This year plans are being made to carry on the practices out of doors as the temperature of the gymnasium in the late spring is not inducive of much physical activity. This year ' s volleyball manager is Dorothy Taylor. fi Tennis UTH WRIGHT won the University Women ' s Singles Tennis championship when she defeated Grace Modlin 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 in the finals last fall. Do rothy Supple, who was last year ' s cham- pion, could not return to Nebraska last spring and, as a consequence, there was much interest and wonder as to who would be champion. This year tennis was put on the same basis as the major sports. This, in addition to the fact that tennis was taught in the women ' s gymnasium classes and will be taught again this spring, is ex- pected to bring an unusual number of girls out for this sport in the spring. The sport is being man- aged by Kathro Kidwell. She plans exciting class team matches for the spring. Page 535 Track m ' - ' ' ' - ' ' M F Three Nebraska University records were broken in the women ' s track meet held in the Mcmorid Stadium last spring. Florence Steffes broke the University state record in the hop-step-jump by four inches. The high jump record was broken by Helen West who cleared the pole at four feet five and three-eights inches. Pearl Safford went over her own pole vault record by nearly two inches, but this record she lost to Irene Mangold when Irene nearly tied the world ' s record in that event in the Alumni Medal Meet held in June, 1924. If the plans of Mildred Armstrong, track manager for this year, are successful, this spring ' s meet will be the biggest ever. mmiii -- ' ' -. i Swimming The annual swimming meet which is held by the W. A. A. had to be cancelled this year because the Lincoln School Board closed the High Schixil pixil to the University women. Until the women of the University have a swimming ptxil of their own, this sport will, no doubt, have to be abandoned. This is one of the reasons why the women students of Nebraska are anxious tor a new gymnasium. Last fall Pearl Safford, an alumna of this institution, instructed the women in swimming. She was a member of the class of ' 24 which carried off the honors in last spring ' s meet. Her sister, Hazel, is swimming manager this year. Pave 53S . I f M I r t Hiking and Skating Hiking IS one ot the most popular sports offered by the Association. Many girls receive points which count towards their " N " s each year by liiking. Girls in knickers may be seen on many high- ways and byways around Lincoln on lovely spring and fall days, but even snow and rain do not stop the enthusiasts. The association awards twenty-five points for forty miles and five points for each additional ten miles up to ninety miles. During the short skating season this winter the rink was crowded with enthusiastic girls who flocked there for a few hours of good, hard exercise. Skating was adopted as a minor sport in January of this year. Points are given for this sport on much the same basis as for hiking; one hour ' s skating is equivalent to five miles of hiking. Alice Pfeiffer had charge of these sports. J «— TT Concessions tT Apples! Candy Bars! Pea- nuts! The old familiar cry! Is there anyone who has not heard It? Attractive girls dressed in .scarlet and cream climb up and down the aisles of the Stadium calling their wares. These girls are representatives of the Women ' s Athletic Association. " What does the Women ' s Athletic Association do with the money? " Fifty per cent of the net profits are given to the Stiidium Fund each year. The balance is used to send representatives to the sectional and national conferences of A. C. A. C. W., to purchase athletic equipment for the sports, to purchase the " N " sweaters which the organization awards, to do philanthropic work, and to defray expenses necessary for the mainten- ance of the W. A. A. So it is that concessions is an important activity of the Women ' s Athleti; Association. Rifle Marksmanship Ritlc marksmanship is gaining popularity with the Nebraska Co-eds. Last fall when about fifty girls were shooting, great interest was shown in the sport. It was started two years ago with barely twenty girls out to practice. W. A. A. purchased three light weight rifles at the begin- ning of the year in order that the women could shoot the kneeling, sitting, and standing positions as well as the prone. The Women ' s Rifle Team completed its inter-collegiate rifle sh(X)ting season with eight and eleven defeats. The highest score of the season was recorded when Nebraska, using highest averages of the prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing positions, registered a total o Mable Dickinson was the manager of the team Abbott Cox T)auei- McCarthy .icn.seii Dickin.son (Mgrr.)

By means of this corps, the well educated young men who are naturally community leaders have been fitted into a defense scheme in which such leadership will become immedi- ately available to the government in time of war. The Reserve Officers ' Training Corps deserves, and has re- ceived, the continuous encouragement of the War De- partment. I am happy to say that, on the whole, it has received the cordial and patriotic support of the college students of the country. In rendering that support, the University of Nebraska has, beyond any question, done its full share. I wish to thank you, and especially to congratulate you on your rating as a distinguished college. The scattered college cadet corps which were trans- formed by the Act of 1916 into the Reserve Officers " Training Corps have, under the definite policy and program of the Act of 1920, secured a clear and con- crete mission. Formerly their members were given general military instruction: now they are specifically trained and fitted for reserve commissions in the army of the United States. Formerly they were graduated without definite tasks or opportunities for immediate service: now they arc invited to ally themselves with Guard or Reserve units located near their homes and to apply their fundamental training to the practical problems of the units supported by their home com- munities. The Reserve Ofiicers " Training Corps, con- sequently, has achieved a new dignity and an increased value in the defense plans of the nation. It aims to develop and utilize the natural leadership of the youth of America, upon who.se ability, intelligence, and skill will eventually depend at first hand the raising and training oi America ' s emergency citizen defense forces. The Reserve Officers ' Training Corps is materially as- sisting us to save coming generations from the perils of nci. ' lcct and indifference. Pagf . ' ■.12 Major Sidney Erickson Major Sidney Erickson is compIrtinK his last year as Pro ' " L ' ss)r of Militaiy Science and Tactics at the University of Nebraska. During his foui- years here he has made the military department av vell-orj;;anizeri and well-tirilU-d unit. While under his comman i the Nebraska R. (). T. C. received the Kold star rating last year fur the first timi- anti will make a strnnK bid to receive that hiv:h honor a ain Ihis year. The Major has made many friends duiiny his four years here and his leavinj will he a severe loss to the military depaitmont. An order sen iinff him to the Infantry School at Ft. Benninn. Ga.. is expected by Major Erickson any time. After a yeai ' at the Infantry School, he expects to spend a year at the Command and General Staffs School at Ft. Leavenworth. Major Erickson first entered the service in Febi ' uary. 1907. at Ft. Totten. N. Y. He received his first, commission as a sec;)nd lieutenant in U)l ' .i and was commissione i first lieutenant in 1! 18. His captaincy came in 1!)I8 and he received his permanent commission as major July 1. 1920. He Is a Kraduali- of the Coa.st Artillery School at Fortress Monroe. Va. He served seven years in the Philippines. He was born in Lakefield, Minnesota, and received his hiKh school educa- tion there. He came to the UnivtMsily of Nebraska In September. 1021. and served one year as assistant P. M. S. and T. In the fall of 1922 he became Commandant. The R, O, T. C, By Maj(1r Sidney Erickson ] - HE year is 1X62. The Civil war is on. The Gov- l ) crnment at Washington is frantically endeavoring to raise troops to put down the rebellon. It is ex- tremely difficult to find leaders. The college man, who is the natural leader in civil affairs, knows practically nothing about things military. Sensing this situation, Senator Morrill introduced a bill in Congress, which is now known as the Morrill Land Grant Act. The Morrill Land Grant Act provides that certain moneys derived from the sale of lands should be devoted to the endowment, support, and maintenance of one college, in each state, that includes military tactics in its course of study. It has been said that this Act does not provide for compulsory military training. True, it does not specific- ally provide that each student must take military science. The framers of this Act did not forsee that a college might some day have elective studies. In 1 S62 there were no elective studies in any college. If English, Chemistry or Military Science were included in any college course, then those courses would have to he taken by the stu- dent. He had no choice. It can readily be seen, therefore, that the Congress that passed this Act had no other thought except to provide for compulsory military training in the schools accepting the terms of the Act. Right thinking people perceive the strong moral obligation upon land grant institutions to continue military training as a mandatory course. Any institution that attempts to evade .1 moral obligation by a doubtful legal technicality, is certainly not setting a worthy exam|-)lc for the youth of America. Page 543 Under the terms of this Act it became the policy of the War Department to detail an army officer, at each land grant institution, to conduct a military department. The course of study and methtxls used to present the course did not develop a very large number of trained leaders. In 1916 Congress passed the original National Defense Act authorizing the establishment of the " OT Reserve Officers ' Training Corps. This Act enabled the War Department to provide sufficient in- 9i structors and to place the military- departments of colleges on an equal basis with other departments. 3] The function of the R. O. T. C. was stated to be for the primary purpose of developing trained leaders ;i to serve their country in a National Emergency. L Universities and colleges that maintain R. O. T. C. units have two courses, a basic course and ■jl an advanced course. The basic course requires two years and, at Nebraska, is compulsory for all tjl physically fit males. The advanced course is elective and is offered only to those students who have fl; successfully completed the basic course (or its equivalent), and show qualities of leadership. u ' It has been said that the primary ' object cf this training is to develop reserve officers. Now what 5 about the by-products? What are the immediate benefits, if any, to the individual student? Military training in no sense implies training to murder or developing the lust to kill. On the _; contrary, the student of military history learns what war really is. He learns that Sherman was right. 3 He learns that war is something to be avoided as long as ' possible — but never to accept " Peace at Any Price. " Certainly never to accept it at the price of National Honor, National Integrity or National 3. Existence. H The student learns the meaning of discipline. Is it not true that more souls are lost and bodies S ruined by a lack of discipline than from any other cause. 2 Individual responsibility is stressed and this factor is one of the predominating requisites for good- ie ' citizenship. America will endure only as long as she retains a virile and responsible citizenship. ;j The physical benefits received in military training are assets that should not be passed over too lightly. A correct posture, an erect bearing and a proper carriage of the body is demanded. A cer- ;j tain time is used exclusively for physical exercises, and the drills are, in themselves, excellent and 5 helpful towards building a sound body. Students are urged and encouraged to enroll in courses in rj the athletic department of the University. .1 The student learn. ' ; obedience; not only obedience to his superiors but obedience to himself, which 4, is more important. No man can ever hope to demand and secure obedience from others, unless he -• can fully appreciate the position of the subordinate. " i The value and necessity of team play is stressed; and after all. the ability to co-operate is of more value to the human being than the ability to compete. Football and baseball teams, composed of . mediocre players, but working as a unit, invariably defeat all-star teams that cannot function as one ;; machine. , " The leadership training that the student receives in the military ' department is of inestimable ' - value in civil pursuits. Our graduates testify to this fact. The individual is taught to " estimate the situation. " He is taught to weigh all factors, favorable and unfavorable, with respect to his mission ; ' Then he is taught to reach a clear, definite and logical decision, and to vigorously pursue his plans : with all available means. We find, of course, in connection with the training in the R. O. T. C, that all do not respond to the same degree, but the majority show a marked improvement in physical bearing, neatness, energy :; and endurance, a greater interest in their school work with an increased capacity to make use of M what they learn and the ability to grasp understandingly and to plan intelligently to overcome diffi- culties. We find, also, that many develop splendid qualities of leadership. They are self-reliant, have initiative, determination, spirit of loyalty, and the ability to co-operate with their fellow students and also to organize and direct them in various schixsl activities. From the standpoint of character, we are especially impressed with the development of the quality of reliability, sense of obligation to duty, courtesy, perseverance, service, and general helpfulness. ,, Throughout the R. O. T. C. course the instructors give short talks on " Citizenship " and no oppor- ' J tunity is neglected to inculcate in the student a reverence for the Constitution and the laws enacted !. ' pursuant thereto, a respect for proper authority and the obligations implied by citizenship. Personal contiict with the student is sought, through the medium of perstmal conferences, with the end in view of assisting each and every cadet to overcome his individual handicaps. It has been noted that objections towards the R. O. T. C. have been decreasing year by year, until now the number attempting to evade the course is almost neglible. I can ascribe this to no other q reason than the fact that the young men of Nebraska are beginning to realize more and more the 3 important function that the R. O. T. C. plays in the defense plans of our Government. A man PaKC .-)l-l that prepares himself to answer his Nation ' s call in the time of a national emergency is certainly a better citizen than one that refuses or neglects to receive that training. After all. National Defense is a question that every person can decide for himself by honestly answering the question, " What does America me.in to me? " If the individual is without gratitude to those who have gone before him, if he feels no responsibility to those who come after him or if he does not realize what this country has meant and is meaning to millions, then, probably, he is not interested in the R. O. T. C. But on the other hand, if he does appreciate these things, if he does enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- ness, you will find him activelv supporting the things for which the R. O. T. C. stands — TRUE AMERICANISM, CIVIC RESPONSIBILITIES AND A VIGOROUS MANHOOD. Commissioned Officers IP H Captain N Albert D.

Pershing, then Commandant of Cadets, under the name of Varsity Rifles. It was primarily a special drill company. When Lieutenant Pershing left the following year the company was reorganized slightly and renamed the Pershing Rifles. In Its early days Pershing Rifles took several trips to compete with other units and usually won such events. One trip to Omaha was particularly successful. Later, during the World War, the company dwindled in strength, and finally the group was disbanded and the ritual and rolls burned. After the war Pershing Rifles was revived and has grown steadily. Several important changes have recently been made in the method of electing members. At present only men taking the basic course in military science are eligible to active membership, and only men in the advanced course are eligible to hold office. When the men arc graduated from the basic course they cease to drill but are still eligible to vote in meetings. Thus the organization is not merely honorary nor are the members all advanced-course men, as was once the case. New men are selected by a " spell down " in manual of arms, and those vi. ' ho excel are placed on trial for several weeks. During this time they are instructed in the manual of arms, close-order drill and the Butt ' s manual. If they perform this work satisfactorily they are voted upon for membership. At present the organization is striving to regain its former position and is carrying out plans to extend organization to other universities whose military departments come up to required standards. Its purposes are those set forth by the founder. General Pershing: To foster a spirit of friendship and co-operation among the men in the military department and to maintain a highly efficient drill company.

Scabbard and Blade attempts to raise the standards of military training in American colleges and universities, to unite in closer relationship their military departments, to encourage and foster the essential qualities of good and efficient officers, and to promote intimacy and good-fellowship among the cadet officers. A group of cadet officers who felt the need of an organization in the military department to bring the officers closer together and to take charge of certain military activities, succeeded in getting C Company, Third regiment, established at the University of Nebraska in 1920. C Com- pany attempts at all times to aid in the promotion of activities beneficial to the military depart- ment. Scabbard and Blade has charge of the military carnival, one of the biggest events of its kind in the school year. It also stages an annual dinner dance and various banquets and lunch- eons for visiting nd inspecting officers. OFFICERS Captain C. C.

Rifle Team finished about even this season, winning twelve matehes and losing J thirteen out of the total twenty-five fired. The firing for the season was consistent and all of the meets had about an equal number of wins and loses. In this corps-area the team won about as many matches as they lost also. This IS the third year of recognized telegraphic shooting and this sport is now coming to be an established activity in the United States. Nearly all of the state universities have teams as have several of the other schools of the country. The matches fired this year were from coast to coast and from Canada to Mexico. The men averaged about the same for the entire seven weeks of firing and no bad break- downs occurred to the team as is so often the case when firing for so long at a time. There will be no letter awards this year as at least half of the games have to be won to earn letters for the team. The six high men for the season were; W. Lammli, D. P. Roberts, R. M. Currier, H. Shafer, E. L. Plotts, and D. F. Kossek. W. Lammli won individual honors with an average score of ?71.86 out of a possible 400. D. P. Roberts, captain, was next high with an average for the season ot . 67. 56. Under the leadership of Captain Roberts and the coaching of Captain L. W. Eggers and Sergeant W. L. Richardson, the team had a fairly successful season and with most of these men back next year and several promising freshmen that will be eligible then, one of the best teams in the country should be developed.

(v HL S into every avenue of life and character Wit darts its porcu ' - pine quills. — pinching the pompous, abasing the proud, brand- ing the shameless, }tnoc}{ing out the teeth of Pretension. The foibles and crimes of men. indeed, afford perpetual occasions for wit. As soon as the human being becomes a moral agent, as soon as he has put off the vesture of infancy and been fairly deposited in trousers, his life becomes a }{ind of tragi ' comical caricature of himself.

Let us be just to mirth. Let us be thanhjul that we have in Wit a power before which the pride of wealth and the insolence of office are abased; which can transfix bigotry and tyranny with arrows of lightning; which can stride its object over thousands of miles of space, across thousands of years of time; and which through its sway over an universal weakness of man, is an everlasting instrument to ma e the bad tremble and the foolish wince. — Edwin P.

It is not offered with the idea of reforming any persons or organizations. Our critics have accused us of many things but never of being reformers. If any unorthodox things are said, it is not for the purpose of waking anyone up. It is only for your amusement and our own. Some of the contributions may contain a little thought. Most of them don ' t. The worst ones will attract the most notice and the best ones will be considered " dumb. " However, after reading the copy that was presented to us we have abandoned our previous nme-months-old intention to depart for Borneo the night before this book IS released to the student body. With apologies to Robert W. Service, let us say that: We have no doubt at all the devil grins. As seas of ink we spatter; Ye Gods forgive our " literary sins. " The other kind don ' t matter. —THE EDITORS. THE GREEK LETTER SORORITY: In the pre-country club days of American education and before the country at large was cursed with co-education, someone at a girls ' school organised one of these things. Once started their birth rate exceeded that of the men ' s organizations. The better of these organizations are composed, for the most part, of girls w-ith little manners and less intelligence. Some of the inferior ones have a few intelligent members — that is why they are inferior. Those of us who have an atavistic Puritanical streak believe that these inflictions w ere sent as a punishment for our sins. There can be no other adequate explanation. Membership in these women ' s marriage bureaus is ob- tained on a basis of personal appearance and a savoir faire in the wearing of clothes, wealth in the family( nouveau riche or parvenu prospects are always welcome), or a pre- viously demonstrated " swinging " ability. Sometimes an intelligent girl slips by the ever-watchful shifting committee or gets in as a compromise to keep the hairpulling from going on beyond two o ' clock. In that case the sorority tolerates her or she soon divorces herself in disgust. Each fall under a system of preferential bidding (really a means of enciiuraging pre-seasonal cut-throat spiking) these groups take unto their numbers an additional batch of twenty to thirty prospective co-eds. In order to insure the initiation of six or eight of them, these fresh- men are pushed into the Kindergarten Course of the Teachers College. (For proof e.xamine the Freshman lists of the four or five " best " sororities with respect to their colleges.) Thus they tie themselves to the arduous task of getting educated ' till marriage doth them part. DEAN OF MEN One hesitates to discuss the Dean of Men tor fear of offerng some really constructive criticism, and, of course, a .student (providing the writer is a student) must not presume to do other than make pleasantries or " diirty cracks " about the Dean. The Dean is a benevolent soul. He is fond, in his way. of the children in the University. He calN them, when they are good, " kids. " " youngsters. " or " children. " " Sometimes they get into trouble or cause a rumpus on the campus: then the attitude of the Dean is summed up in these three words, " ' They pesky kids. ' " The Dean has his own conception of the University as a public institut:iin which doubtless may be applied to the whole school system. He is the Dean of Men in a day nursery in which the kids are good most of the time. Fifteen years ago they were terrible and the brewery wagon backed up to the doors of the fraternity houses once a day. Now, .since the Dean has been here, his chil- dren are subject only to periodic outbreaks caused by the effects of an aftcr-the-war jazz age, automobiles, too much money, and too little hard work. Unfortunately, to main- tain the good record we have here and not to degenerrate into a Wisconsin where the girls can stay out all night, the Dean finds it necessary to kill any signs of immorality in the bud. Under his classification comes petting, womens smoking, late hours on week nights, asking too many questions, making students intellectually restless. " smokers (see Centurians, Daily l ebrasl{dn, and the word " blacklist " in connection with what the people out over the .state will think), etc. It may be added that the Dean IS especially solicitous about the condition of student health, frequently sending students home because of trouble with their eyes, caused, no doubt, by overstudy. Our feeling is, however, that one should not complain too much. As the Dean of Men in an institution which is perfectly conventional, which is growing gradually into a bigger and better social-athletic circus, which has an exterior that is never broken by bursts of intelligence, and, thanks to the Dean, rarely gets into the papers for any- thing else, what more could be desired than King Carl (as he is so affectionately called) with his card tricks, his speeches, and his Scandinavian temperament, surrounded by his " youngsters " and " pesky kids? " THE TASSELS Women never can leave bad enough alone, so when the Corncobs commenced their rah-rah activities in front of the grandstands the women had to show off too. The Tassels organization resulted. The Tassels thrust themselves on the University official- ly, at one of the football games. Capitalizing an existing fad, these young ladies put on silk stockings and bloomers and paraded on horseback in front of the stands. Just what connection this exhibition of poor taste had with the " old team " is hard to see. Of course, it is natural — this love of self-display. But things have their proper place: and the spirit of the revue does not exactly connect with that of football. This organization came a little nearer to its function when it endeavored to amuse the public on University Night, but the skit was so insipid that the Tassels " record is a complete blank for this year. When they lose Har- riet Cruise, the Tassels will not even plea.se the jazz-boys of the University. They might as well toss up the sponge now! THE CORN COBS An organization of male morons. It is strong for the " old School " ' and is always there with plenty of " the old fight. " The average intelligence of the members is little better than that of the Tassels — har.sh words, but true. « THE MAY QUEEN Pulchritude was formerly the principal criterion in the choice of the Queen of the May, but with the growing complexity of life in general, particularly in the centers of learning such as this purports to be, other matters have come in for their share of consideration. Sorority politics has now practically usurped the exalted places at one time held by beauty and brains. The innocent young woman, whose stay on the campus has been devoted to acquiring an education instead of studying Greek-letter social standings, probably thinks that the May Queen election is held in some such fashion as this: The campus is suddenly shocked and surprised to hear that today the May Queen will be chosen. The senior women stampede to cast their votes, and a list is provided Pane 57S) t»l II llT-r " t. -. so that their names may he checked off as they vote. There must be no corruption. When the voting is over the ballots are counted and the winner is a young women who has a regal bearing, a splendid record in activities, and who is an embodiment of everything which young womanhood should be. Such is the person who is chosen to represent the Grand Old School. It is cruel to shatter such childish dreams, but the truth must prevail. The way in which the election actually takes place follows: Every sorority which wants to run one of its girls for honor sends a representative to every other sorority on the campus, begging its votes and promising to reward such support by making one of its girls Maid of Honor. They then return to the chapter house and count the number of votes available. The Mortar Board member returns presently to announce the date of the election which is, by the way. never known in advance — no never! The votes are cast. Those who have no personal animus, probably, do not vote at all. If the voting is exceedingly dull the Mortar Board members who guard the box may, if no one of the opposing faction is watching, stuff the ballot box. The votes are counted at a meeting of Mortar Board held that evening. One member is told to referee the tight between the two highest contestants. The girl who gets the second highest number of votes and is, therefore. Maid of Honor, goes home to weep on her pillow or on a masculine shoulder if one is available. The other twelve women nish to tell their friends about the election " in strictest confidence, my dear, you mustn ' t breathe it to a soul. " :: THE COLLEGE STUDENT According to the newspapers he knows too much; he knows too little: he is immoral: he is too good: he is too independent: he is too subservient; he flouts tradition: he is too much bound by convention. Heaven help him. HShere we have, however, four examples of what he may be. We submit them for what they are worth: The Big Man There is nothing to the Big-Man Myth on this campus — it is a reality. Witness the big little giant who does the pole-vault stunt. His other activities include the Y. M. C. A., the Campus Rotary Club, and a good-looking young lady who lives in a twenty-odd room house with three other persons. Surely he is a Big Man on the campus and will inherit the earth — or marry it. If he were a football man. he would doubtless he devoid of intelligence. As it is he will grow up and be a leading citizen, a pillar in his church, a successful business man. and may be sent to the Senate. In other words he is perfectly conventional, will make a good Republican and will iceep cool with Coolidge and the rest of the party ' s candidates for the rest of his life. If he turns out well. we hope never to see him in the bald-headed row at the Follies! ThK ATHLtTE Here we have a football player whose skull is so thick that the inner side of one ear touches the inner side of the other ear. He is dumb without being beautiful and cannot keep up his hours even in the House of Bizaduca- tion. having tried the Law College first. This tall, lank country lad slid through high school because his head was so hard that opposing football teams got out of his way. He came up to the University and the world has owed him a livin ; e -er since. If he is able to play football next year, it will be because he has devised some combination of a Bizad-Kindergartcn-Coaching s:hooI course that will allow him to get credit for sleeping. The Intellectual This chap may be represented by a mind of doubtful value surrounded by a mass of hair. He is an Intellectual. It is not because he knows he is an Intellectual that he does not cut his hair, but becau.se he is too much occupied with the better and higher things in life to get his hair Pace .57B cut. The world is too much with him! Whence cometh such another? The accomplishments of this chap are many and varied. To list them all would be impossible. He likes the " big blonde beast " of Nietzsche, but also likes the gentle, leis- ure of the Greeks; he is a professed individualist-humanist, but his humanitarian breeding crops out at every turn: he scorns the American Magazine and H. L. Mencken as well; he talks of the booboisie in contemptuous language, but expects to find Chopin on the Victrolas of country cafes and college town tea-rooms; he sets himself up as a final authority on tea, ankles, belleslettres, gracefulness in feminine smoking, les beaux arts, tobacco, and Oscar Wilde. This chap also wrote a colyumn. Requiescat in pace! The Ordinary Stident This inoffensive person with the meek look is the ordin- ary student. He has no Greek-letter pin and he leads no revolutions. He came to college for an education. He will be disappointed. :;: SIGMA DELTA CHI This group is Exhibit A in the case to prove that the fabled leopard can actually change his physical appear- ance and come forth glowing with that light that " never was on sea or land. " Not so long ago the puzzle editor of the Youths " Com- panion could find not a trace of journalistic atmosphere in the organization; it was a sort of glorified Theta Nu Epsilon for all the successful boy-politicians. who were promptly made members. Among other things it elected Awgwan officials and once a year put out the Evening Shun. Then the last Shun and the Great Catastrophe broke together in one terrific blinding flash, and the mem- bers ran in circles trying to keep their charter and them- selves in college. So great was the agitation that they reorganized with the Director of the School of Journalism as their advisor, faculty member, and general Guardian Angel. No one gets in now unless he is registered in the school of journalism. This has resulted in all of the school politicians taking journalism. It is said that the meetings are opened with hymns and short prayers by each of the members. The popular hymn is " We Shall Be Whiter Than Snow. " But. notwithstanding the far-famed whitewashing, all is not white that prays and glistens. There are still Awgwan editors to be elected, and some of the dear boys actually are said to pull strings in order that the favored son may get the place. The reformation is too sudden to be con- vincing. We recall the little rhyme: " When the devil is sick, the devil a monk would be. When the devil is well, the devil a monk is he. " DEBATE This activity is sacred and we. therefore, leave it un- touched. The temptation to indicate its real character. however, is so strong that we cannot resist it, and we accordingly reproduce what is a duplication — or, rather a near-duplication — of its advertising methods: " A swift system of intercommunication, an efficient ma- chine for the sifting and weighing of evidence, has been set up and is now in motion in the " Think Shop " (Uni- versity Hall 106A) where, for twenty-three years, selected students of argumentation, economics, history, and political science — four of them have been Rhodes Scholars: twenty- iiix. members of Phi Beta Kappa: twelve. Order of the Coif — have received training in straight thinking, succinct speech, and the logical formulation of argument, and where ten representatives of the University are now en- gaged in sifting, arraying, and weighing evidence in prep- aration for the annual forensic contests with Iowa and South Dakota (Tri-State League), when, at Nebraska, thcv will tangle in an intellectual prize-fight in Memorial Hall with three representatives of the Univer.sity of South Da- kota. They will be " at the switch ' on the deadline hour. " W. A. A. AS IT REALLY IS Chuck Warren, after his fiasco in affairs, of the heart, has now turned politician and is the Alpha Sig bid for an Innocent. Well. Usher got away with it. « After reading that Ward Wray only had a part in the chorus of the Kosmet Klub show rather than a lead, most of us bought a ticket. Someone should tell Nick Amos that a coonskin coat looks out of place on a street car. Also that one should not try to drive Ford cars through plate glass windows. That patriarch, Tudor Gairdner, still hangs around the Sigma Nu house and tortures a banjo. The neat way in which he made Choppy Rhodes football captain deserves a pension. THETA SIGMA PHI This IS an alleged Journalistic society for women which meets once a year and elects members. It is honest enough not to pretend that it amounts to anything. Always deca- dent as far as activities are concerned, it has now descended so low that it raffles off lin- gerie in order to raise money. It is one ol the three organiiations for women on the campus not founded by Miss Louise Pound. THE GREEK-LETTER FRATERNITY If you have read the enlightening outburst in this section on the Greek letter sorority you have an adequate idea of the correspond- ing organizations for men. Most of them have imposing rituals, copied after those of the Masonic order, and an elaborate system of secret handshakes and recognition signs which are well known to every one. A dazed and vacant facial expression, a pair of very wide trousers, a pair of yellow shoes, a slicker of the same color, and hair which is so pasted with toilet preparations that it looks as if it were varnished makes up the equipment which is the sina qua iioii (which means " without which not " ) of the fraternity man. He is one man the University cannot touch. His education was stopped when he put on the pledge pin. ■■i ' :!: Y. M. C. A. See the writeup of the Y. W. C. A. and think of something which is weaker and more ineffectual and you will have a vivid mental picture of the importance of this organization. It is a combination of hide-bound Presby- terians and Methodists and young radicals who don ' t go to church at all. Oh, Longfellow — " With thy turned up pan- taloons. " Oh, Mathias — " Volz wears nickers and dis- cards the balloons. " WONDER if they ought not to start a school of floristry? LOOKS as if they had from the way the cast went out to pick lilacs at the Kosmct re- hearsals. VALKYRIE Valkyrie is a society organized in 1917 by Miss Louise Pound, who, pausing from her study of the American vernacular, found a few spare moments on her hands. So, of course, she organized Valkyrie. It IS not libel to say that the members are a motly crew. They include the left-overs from the Mortarboard elections: deserving young ladies whose social duties have left them so little time for the Y. W. C. A. and the W. S. G. A. that they have no hopes for a Black Masque; an occasional young intellec- tual, whose unorthodox ideas have estranged her from the regulars, and Miss Heppner. The society has no purpose, and. indeed, accomplishes it very well. There was a time, a few years ago, (before Sigma Delta Chi hit the sawdust trail and came out beautifully whitewashed) when the members could spend their time passing lusty resolutions damning the publications for operating beauty contests and popularity contests. Now even that rather futile function has faded away. We would be the last, however, to say that the Valkyries have no message to the world. Two years ago, in the w. k. Cornhusker, they announced that their purpose was " raising the standards of student life, and in promot- ing deserving enterprises. " Since that time nothing has been said about the matter, and perhaps it is better so. One can find real, unadulterated humor in this group — a trifle delicate and ironical, but unpremeditated. They really take themselves quite seriously, and members have been known to be proud of their election, or se- lection. The organization is much like its humor — entirely unconscious.

FOLSO.M Secretary Pace 582 COMMERCIAL CLUB In the fall of every year a freshman in the Bi:ad Cullefje receives a special invitation tell- ing him that he has been singled out to be- come a member of the University Commercial Club. When he gets down to the meeting- place, he discovers that every other freshman has also received a special invitation. The younglings are then told to line up and hand five dollars to the treasurer for an initiation fee after which they are taken into another room and paddled. This is salutary training for embryo business men, helping them to re- frain from ever again being so gullible. THE WOMEN ' S SELF-GOVERNMENT ASSOCL- TION is a group of girls who pur- port t o represent the University. One may become a member by paying a fee into the coffers of the organisation. Membership en- tails the right to vote for the president, vice- president, secretary, treasurer, and members of the board. This board may then bask in its honors. The Girls " Cornhusker party, which pro- vides an opportunity for girls to play together until after the men ' s banquet is over and then go downstairs, scantily clad, to meet their dates, is sponsored by this organisation, which states its purpose as the moral oversight of the feminine cohorts on the campus. Except for this mission, the association has no visible excuse. What can one say of Viking and the kin- dred organisations? There was a time when the Vikings held an annual " beer-bust. " Then there was some excuse for the outfit; now the weaker-hearted, including a present Innocent, vetoed the plan last year, and all possible ex- cuse for existence promptly passed. Instead they hold " dinner-dances. " One can imagine only with the greatest difficulty a group of the Norse vikings in dinner dress. There is this much to be said favorably: The lambs who arc led to the slaughter, under the " honor- ary " bunkum, are socked fifteen dollars a head; which socking they richly deserve, else they would not be lambs. ::: ;!! ATHLETIC BOARD Here is a board made up of angels, saints, and political Sir Galahads. It is a constant watch dog to see that the political purity of the campus is left untouched. The meetings are opened with prayers and the singing of " Onward Christian Soldiers. " Some of the more cynical are inclined to wonder why this board never has elected to investigate a foot- ball election until this year. It may be, these insidious persons point, because never before has the defeated candidate had a fraternity brother in the legislature. There are also those who wonder why some of the members of this board always get to make trips with the football team. But persons who ask ques- tions like these are crude and sadly lacking in school spirit. They will certainly not go to heaven where we may expect to find this board gaily pursuing its crusades. Oh Ida (No, not Ida Clair) Spring is here — the boys are going without their hats and IDA has plucked her BUD. " Phi Kappa Psi Forever " she shouts as she raves on about California and that southern clime. Now, really Bud, we can ' t see how you fell for that diminutive Alfalfa Hee. We are glad that she at last did rope in one harmless " psi psi " man who doubtless swal- lowed her giftgab about southern California. Did she get it from the Alpha Phis? Ah, we thought you would ask that question. Judge for yourself, ye that have had an eve- ning spoiled by her field chatter. Oh well. Nelson, pin on your Egyptian in- cense burner and call it.

Yet every boy in the chapter is not only courteous and kind to his fellow men, but is of the ambitious, " Go-getter, " two-gun type. Notice their last chapter publication pre- sented at the fiftieth anniversary celebration held some time ago (the fifty years includes the ten or twelve in which they were inac- tive). According to their extensive line of " dope " seven men were out for football with at least six of them sure of varsity letters. The.ie included " Conk " Cameron, the boy with the eastern accent, and Jack Boyer, that would-be politician since winning the sopho- more chair (by what was a landslide, accord- ing to the publication). And besides these, numerous other hopes were quoted, including Brinkerhoff ' s success in the Iron Sphinx and on Publications. All in all the Phi Delts have a real good chapter, a bunch of nice boys. Our only hope is that sometime they will drag themselves up out of last place in everything so that they will at least equal Alpha Theta Chi and Phi Sigma Kappa. ANOTHER campus genus, which should not be overlooked in any classification, is one to which may be applied any number of names. " Young intellectual, " " nineteen-year-old phil- osopher. " or " campus radical " are terms any one of which will fit the case. What arc the requirements needed by one who would be- long to this set of individualists who tread our campus with haughty scorn for anything be- low the horizon and whose remarks are com- posed of half-cynical, half-sceptical blurbs on anything and everything upon which more than two students are able to agree? The fir.st thing essentia! quality for mem- bership is an affectation in some pseudo-in- tellectual field. One must assume a deep love for verse, usually for that of some remote na- tion such as Chinese; or one may assume to advance the cause of some remote political school of thought if it were actually applied would make a mess of any .state or nation; or one may pretend to " have a general interest in things " and with wise looks and a knowing air refrain from making any but cynical re- marks on any subject. Thus is the reputation gained, the name " intellectual " earned, and membership in the cognoscenti established. A discriminating and critical selection of dress is necessary to members of this order. None but shabby, baggy clothes are per- mitted, flowing neckties are encouraged, a monocle or a cane (called " stick " ) may be approved. Uncut and unkempt hair is im- perative. Hats are worn only in the best weather, but never in winter or in the rain. Should the members see. however, that all are trending in this direction they put on slouch hats to prevent anything approaching con- formity. In going to the theater, the " intellectual " skips the moving picture. One was caught once coming out of " The Perfect Flapper " and that member appeared chagrined for life. All foreign-language grand opera is attended as are all questionable plays from New York, but they are criticised afterward with that haughty superiority which puts all suggestive or profane parts beneath the notice of the critic. Thus we have the member of the class of the nineteen-year-old philosopher group. Cri- tical, cynical, haughty to all convention, a species of which there are a few examples in all society. They expect to rock the world with their learning, but most of them will turn out to be second-rate college instructors. 4e OUR prayer is that Faculty cyclists won ' t get arrested for " peddling without a license.

From every path and pursuit of life Youth turns at eventide to the worship of its God. The day of toil is over. No longer to tread the noisy halls of hijjher education, un- til the next week starts, the sons and daugh- ters of their alma mater cast off all thoughts of how to sell and how to go and get — vital in preparation for life in the world without — and turn, in reverent manifestation of their deepest thoughts and expression of their medi- tations, to the worship of their idol, in the dance before their God. From the halls of Bizaducation to their dwellings repair the youths, bearerrs of tomor- row ' s burdens, and the maidens who will help one day to guide our fortunes, and there in eagerness prepare themselves for the worship. The maidens with the keener judgment clothe themselves with flimsy garments, which are cool and refreshing to the eye. The youths, blinded to all by tradition and convention, don stiff, stilted, and uncomfortable apparel. Thus engarbed they go in pairs to the tem- ples and shrines of their worship. The din of frenzied music, beating, moan- ing, throbbing, clashing — greets the ears of entering Youth. Once within, they start the dance. The music is mans highest mental tribute to his God; and in his dance, man ' s physical being w-orships. The dance con- tinues; it is the worship of Youth. Each pair of dancers vies with every other pair in sub- limity of expression. How pleasing they must be in the eyes of their God! Suddenly above the sound of the crowd comes the call to prayer. A beating of the drums, a chanting of the priests — the music- makers — calls to the shrine of the Prophet the worshipers. The music is softer — the crowd is expectant — the Prophet appears! He stands in silence, waiting! With almost smil- ing features and with eagle eye he surveys the crowd. Then from his lips bursts forth his message to the Youths and Maidens — " San Domingo Land of Limbo. " Ah! there is but one God — And that God is Jazz. And Orville Andrews is his Prophet! » ■FAR QUHAR ' S SAKE Greetings and salutations to you — grrrr — ye organizers of the collegiate knickerbocker .society. Tell me, how do those supposed rep- resentative Cornhuskers get away with it? And the organizers? Why, the charter mem- bers include Ray Janda, Arthur Latta (yes, the Fee Gee), Barty Egan, " Doc ' Campbell, " Ted " Crofoot, " Booze " Holland, Major Ar- ries, " Mutt " Volz, Mel Collins, Duke Glea- son, and our own Marion Woodward. Oh, yes, they are organized. After a stren- uous political campaign the reknowned Egan of Beta fame was elected to the position of Old Ell. President Egan made the statement shortly after his successful campaign ended that all spindles would be kept out of the group. Why didn ' t Woody get any office? I thought you would ask me that question. ' Tis strange, but as the poets said, " Stick to your horn, " and " Blow bugle, blow. " " Mutt " Volz was unanimously elected vice- president by the co-educational admirers chiefly because of his Venician calves. Ray Janda will hold the reigns of secretary and treasurer for his ability as jockey, while Hol- land takes the settee as sergeant at arms for his riding and bouncing possibilities. " They all look just heavenly — so cunning and sweet in their new knickers. " say the girls about school as they fall into dreams just too wonderful for words. Just another worth-while organization is this Knickerbocker group. Toss your hat in the ring and hail to the donners of the abbre- viated trow. RUN, Caldwell.

THE HOOP AND THE CRESCENT The Armory was filled with breathless silence — in walked Emmett V. Maun and David C. Richardson, the two Cornhusker " sportsmen " ' who have attempted to enter the realm of Spaulding and Reach, as far as com- posing Missouri Valley sporting rules is con- cerned. Now these two Nebraskans have risen to the heights of the athletic halo through their cleverness in writing anonymous letters to those renowned members of that Ne- braska Athletic Board which has risen to exceptional prominence during the past school year. Maun and Richardson have the school at heart and would like right well to see Ne- braska be crowned Valley cage champs in 1926: but. however. Kappa Sigma Forever stands out above. These two sing " The Crescent and the Star " before each confer- ence period in which they talk concerning the need of keeping Nebraska athletics clean and away from professionalism. And what do you mean by professionalism? Simply, ac- cording to Maun and his field marshal, the playing of basketball games. This committee of two has been self- appointed to watch our " N " men every time thev leave town and when Husker cagesters visit the " tall corn " fields why not notify the public for our own good, say the two underwriters.

At the time of this writing we wish you luck but the mystery of the " clean sport yarn " should have borne your signa- tures. Now. don ' t you think so? Your names have been attached to so many papers of civic bearing during your rise in collegiate sportdom. We admit Fred played a great game — great as the fare place — but why upset that container that prooved so costly to the Crimson and the White. You have yet to gain your end. although your finish has re- sulted. Sorry that this couldn ' t be handled through the Student Council — but success. CROSSED WIRES. Number, please! Just give me Maun. Well, that ' s different. Hello, Maun Yes. The password? Tabor. Iowa. Continue. This is Dave. Dave? Dave Richardson. Oh. I thought it was David the stone thrower, ha, ha! It is. Ha-a-a-a-ha. How ' s it lining up? Well, the letter ' s written; last class, note- book paper. Good. He ' ll never hold that pilot ' s post if I have anything to say. Now Fred should land all right. Yea. Black thinks so too. Well, Kappa Sigma and clean athletics. No professionalism or whatever you want to call it. That ought to get away in itself. Yea, they played, now bring it into Valley rules (Who sneezed) and get that sixth and decisive vote. (Strive hard). Well, the brothers will back us I ' m sure. Sure. Eck is logical and now — probable. (Note the Maun. Richardson, Black, Eck- strom stronghold.) Celebrate tonight. Where? At Tabor? Ha, ha. No. over at the polls. Beta House, Good- son ' s or anywhere.

And what ' s more, the advertising comes from his own mouth. We can ' t figure it out. but he manages to hoodwink every Daily Ncbraskan reporter into including in the news articles every activity he ever participated in at Nebraska with a few personal quotations added. His title appeared in the Nebraskan at least ten times last year, but he has .slowed up a little this year since becoming an Innocent and he has been card-indexed only seven times. He still has several weeks though. ' e can ' t comprehend how he couldn ' t get to the Military Ball and yet is one of the leaders of the University Y. M. C. A. We would like to know why the Phi Psi ' s broke Junior Branch ' s pledge. We know at least fifteen in that organization of " would-be-men " that arc worse than Junior Branch. Honestly, we feel like congratulating Juny on his good fortune of not hav- ing to wear that little soup ladle in the lapel of his coat anymore. We have noticed a decided improve- ment in him since he has left that club. The Phi Delts have announced to the world that they arc going to become the leader of fraternities at Nebraska. Right now they are the leaders at the wrong end of the list. It takes good men in a chap- ter to make a good chapter, .so we can hardly sec how they are going to come up from their lowly position. With such fellows as Boyer. Reavis and Rucklos. wc believe they would come nearer being leaders among a bunch of paper-hangers than fra- ternities. Of course, if Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon were the only fraternities on the campus we would grant them the honor of being the leader now. « Bill Wright — bow your heads, folks, for here collies the man who tries to imitate Dean Seavy. Wake up Bill, you are not Chief Justice of the Su- preme Court! You are just a Law j tudent trying to bluff your way through the Law College. You can .stick your head up in the air. Bill, and pass everybody by and try to look intelligent, but your countenance gives you away. So. just come down to earth and try to be a man among men and per- haps some day you will achieve the notoriety that ou .iro now trying to achieve.

I Let others tell of the heroes Who fight where the sabres gleam, Where the blood of the thousands fallen Doth redden the flowing stream; Let others tell of the courage Displayed in the clash of war, Where armies mingle in battle And the cannons belch and roar; But mine is another message Of those whom my heart reveres, I sing of a nation ' s heroes, The dauntless pioneers. There were lonely days on the frontier, Times when the world seemed drear. Tasks that were hard to master And dangers that thrilled with fear; But this was a band with a purpose, With a courage that never fails, And the long line never wa vered As it followed the western trails. Many the tributes we owe them, Men of a passing age; They leave us a hallowed mem ' ry, The richest of heritage. Men with the pioneer spirit! Blazers of western trails! Resolute, dauntless, loyal. Never your courage fails. And out from your ranks shall issue The brave and noble and great; The builders of future empires, The future leaders of state. And they shall win fame and honor That will live undimmed through the years; For they are the scions of heroes, The fearless pioneers. UNION STOCK YARDS CO.

A list of members of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Kappa Sigma fraternities who have been requested, by the Dean, to leave college in the last three years was compiled for use in this section. Its length, however, made its publication impossible. Fateplays queer tricks. Once Miss Bell was the pride of the Theta house and Emmett Maun was a lowly barb about to lead a revolution against fraternities. . . Then Mr. Maun pledged Kappa Sig ( the way all promising barb leaders do) and the situation changes. We should not forget Clayton Goar, the understudy of the brilliant Martin, and the last hope of the Sig Chis for a place in the Thirteen. One of the amazing things on the campus is the ease with which Ladd Hubka thinks up these remarkable political deals right out of his own head. La,st year there was that brilliant Publication Board deal; this year there was the football captaincy. This boy ' s mind is not only a single-track mind, it is also of the one-cylinder variety, In a mention of parasites we should not forget Nemo Millson and Gish, They hang around the Delta Gamma house and talk to the girls until their " dates " come and then they stay a while longer and play the Victrola. One of their pet stunts is to go into the Silver Moon, eat with some unsuspecting girl, and then walk out. leaving the check. They are, nevertheless, good Delta Gamma rushers. You should have seen them jump up and down when the girls took Marian Horner away from the Kappas. .iii tiniiiiinniiimniiiiiiii i.TT-rr: HTHF FIRST NATIONAL BANK of Lincoln, Nebraska This Bank is proud of the fact that it has handled the Banking Business of Students of the University of Nebraska since the Year 1871.

No man handicapped by an Alpha Theta Chi pin can get very far. Investigators for the Humane Society discovered that the Delts still had Ballah chained to the furnace in the cellar. It is about time they turned him loose and showed him to some of their rushecs. It is not remarkable that the Kappa Sigma chapter suffers from internal dissension.
