TO Woobroto WBil on THE TWENTY-EIGHTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, AVHOSE LIFE AND CHARACTER HAVE PROVED HIM THE IDEAL UNIVERSITY MAN, THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED. Hail to thee, Nevada, with thy hair Entwined with living green; thy dew-moist lips A-murmnr mth bloom-giving stream that slips Through yielding lands ; thy beaiiteous bosom bare Unto the sun ' s red kiss; thy loins, snow- fair. Begirt with jeweled gleams ; thy finger tips Stretched to a million stars where sky space dips Into the desert vastness, hushed in prayer. Around thee stand, invincible, rock walls Of ancient splendor. O ' er thee plays strange light Of an enchantress ; dowered e ' en thy blight With gold and silver. Perfumed beauty spills On thy flower-sandled feet and Peace distills Through the tranquilities of moon-paled Night. Hail to thee, Nevada, Mother, wise, Of stalwart sons and daughters. We would be Soul fashioned in kin-likeness unto thee. Teach us the magic power that in thee lies To make life ' s deserts rainbowed with surprise. Lost in vast sweep of Thought ' s immensity The sand-grain of our fret. Futurity With aching hopes unroll before our eyes. Give us they passion for great Freedom ' s sway; Give us thy love which makes thee bounteous-kind; Give us the understanding which will bind Our present morning to the distant day. Yea, as we dwell with thy wild charms we pray Give us the largeness of the visioned mind. —Sarah Bard Field Ehrgott.

AS any old fellow got mixed with the boys? " — Time was when this issue in the Alumni of the U. of N. seemed very far off indeed. But the calendars of the years are piling up. Gray heads and bald heads now make a dignified sprinkling with the auburn and russets and tow heads in any gathering of the " Rah-rah-Nevada " — " 92 " — " 14. " I hasten to qualify that this statement does not apply to any Alumna. For the girls — God bless ' em! — are today as of yore. No Alumnus will ever be able to discover that the years have done other- wise than mellow the perennial loveliness of a co-ed. That is the spirit of our chivalry. We ' ll stand by it, though the heavens fall! And — If any old fellow gets mixed with the boys, And doesn ' t come through with an " Amen ' s noise. We ' ll souse him deep in the old Orr ditch, Boots and collar and gusset and stitch ! Now with Tom and Dick and the balance of the old boys, we can note the sagacious expansion of forehead between the eyebrows and back collar button with appropriate levity. And where the frosts of Time have touched the once ambrosial locks of Joe, and the crow ' s feet have marked geometrical designs on Bill, well— it ' s a bally joke on old Father Time, for he ' s made a mistake. We ' re all young yet, and will always be. each blessed Alumnus and Alumna. And here ' s to the U. of N. ! and to the Doctor, and the Faculty, and to Our Class, and to all other Classes, and to the Alumni, and to the undergraduates, and to the Co-Eds — and last, but not least — to Her whose hand we used to hold in the good old summer time. The years have only softened the lingering sweetness of her memory — that Manzanita girl of — what year was it? and, let me see, what was her name? Well, anyhow, dates and names are unimportant, for if it is not Her hand that we still hold in the twilight, it may be well not to mention any names. They say that ours is a young University! What of it? It has stored in its treasuries the wisdom of all the ages. What more has Harvard? What more Yale, or Princeton? They are all young, as times goes, and so are we young! It is this generation and the thoughts of this generation, not the past, that rules them; and the same generation and ideas rule our Alma Mater. They have no edge on us. We no edge on them. Out of the great common fount of acquired knowledge, we are as free to take and make use of what is best as the oldest university on earth. It is not the school that really makes the 22 man or the woman. One ' s Alma Mater can go but so far in perfecting her graduates ' fitness as social factors. The largest contingency is the degree of capacity for university culture innate in each human entity. , , , ,, . . , Now perhaps some bumptious individual will rise up to declare that we old bald and gray-headed Alumni are unduly biased in favor of the institution where we struggled with the pons asinorum and managed, goodness knows how to get across And where we burned the midnight oil, dim by comparison with the flame within our breasts, while we chucked d Calculus and dedicated a lyric to that rapturous divinity we danced with seven times at the Junior Prom or the Military ball. There you have it-poetry! It ' s out at last! It is our eonfession-we old boys-to our successors; and there is no shame m it That midnight oil was not consumed in vain. Not a drop of it! For, after all, did not Dan Cupid leave something divine in our souls quite as valuable as the knowledge we acquired from old Euclid, with all his angular positivenes.s 1 I guess he did, and then some! And, really now, did we not go to college to get the acute and obtuse angles rubbed out of (,ur sy ems - - . gg g hat of the Alumni of the U. of N. ? But what of them, I say? Each class, since " 92, " has gone about its business to perform some striving part in the workshop of life. They ' ve rubbed elbows and rubbed minds with the classmen of Yale and Harvard, Stanford and Berkeley, Princeton and Cornell, and bless me! I guess, without too much indication of bias, that they ' ve held their own! I guess they have, indeed! u x. A Rioht here let me say to that bumptious individual that no state, or nation, or single hemisphere is big enough to hold the endervor of OUR BOYS! They are, today, the wide world over. Beyond our sagebrush boundaries and beyond the eternal seas in other lands they ' ve made good. And that is a fine test-the crucible of the world! The story of South Africa cannot honestly be written without the names of Bristol, Hardach, Frey, Henry, Leadbetter, Kinkead, Luke, Gault, Bruette Arnot and Linscott. ' And there is Berry in Costa Rico; Higgins, Kelly, Schraps and Wolf in South America; Sears m Manila; Lawrence and Quinn in Mexico, Segraves and Taylor in Alaska, and others that I can ' t .just now recall who are m other lands. Haven ' t they held their own with the best human timber that other universities have shaped and fitted and turned out? I guess they have! Where is that bumptious individual now? Biased ' There is no bias to it I It is cold-blooded fact! Let anybody try to convince one of the old gray heads or batd heads of he Nevada Alumni that our boys are nat a neck ahead of Berkeley and Yale and the whole kit and caboodle of the Alumni of other universities! That ' s the spirit! And it is not simulated, it is sincere. It is not pretended, but glows as an unquenchable fire in the depths of our hearts. These boys and girls of our Alumni are the salt of the earth and are active leaven in the world ' s progress. x mi. There is Hays up in British Columbia building a mighty irrigation reservoir for the Canadian government, there is Cutting making a new city on San Francisco bay. There ' s one Lewers keeping a great railroad system withm the law, and 23 another Lewers head of a patent office department. There ' s Kearney supreme over the waters of his state and Boyle supreme m Its matters of taxation. There ' s Norcross and McCarran, Justices of the Supreme Court, if you please. There ' s Stubbs managing railroads, and Doten director of the Experiment Station, and Frandsen mighty in biology, and Creel chasing the alfalfa weevil to its lair, and Tobin entrancing thousands with his music, and Durl ee experting lands, Wright and Stadtmuller profound in finance, and Finlayson inventing processes to reduce ores, and Longley, Magill, Jamison and Carpenter and a dozen others of our boys operating mines, and McBride harnessing electricity, and Mack an authority on metes and bounds, and Peterson in the Berkeley chair of machinery, and Caine pleading and practising, and Brambilla preparing his country i:or war, and Case, Payne, Stewart, Smith and Miller settling water rights, and Peckham the modern potato king, and Keddie, Walts, Patrick, Maekay and others making nine blades of grass grow where none grew before, and so on ! These are only a few of our boys. Those only, that I can recall on the spur of the moment. There are dozens of others of them invading all the professions and avocations requiring trained minds and high abilities. Now, lest anybody may think that I am going to overlook our girls in this discourse on the Alumni, I am going to set at rest that uncalled-for apprehension right here. The girls have too warm a place in the hearts of us bald heads ever for one moment to be overlooked. They are IT— the sumnium bonuni of us all ! I wonder, if the truth were known, how much THEY have contributed to the success of some of our boys? I wonder! In our college days, did not they instil in us the boundless incentive to get somewhere in the world so we could show them of what real metal we were? And afterwards some of us, at least, can thank some dear co-ed that we did not entirely flunk in the lessons of life. Like the beys, Our Girls are playing honest and useful and noble parts in the service of the world. They have made good in many professions and avocations, and in those highest vocations of all— wifehood and motherhood. There is Lena Joy, principal of schools in Los Angeles, and Kate Reigelheuth, professor of languages in the University, and Mabel Stanaway, instructor in the Boston Conservatory of Music, and Agnes Bell, the linguist, and Bess Evans, the historian, and Francis Frey and " Bob " O ' Neil, the Montessories of Nevada, and Louise Blaney, secretary of the Alumni, and Ann Martin, getting votes for women in England and America, and many, many others of Our Girls I could mention if I had more space allott ' ed me. They have realized, in the after years, all our adolescent dreams and ideals— these girls of the U. of N. ! Here ' s to you— Our Girls, forever ! And — If any old fellow gets mixed with the boys And doesn ' t come through with an " Amen " noise, We ' ll souse him deep in the old Orr ditch. Boots and collar and gusset and stitch. — C. A.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY TSITORS at any public institution, travelers who grace with their presence some remote country-side inn, voyagers to distant unexplored regions, all on departure leave some testimonial of their impressions and achievements. We, a band of not thirty toilers, have tramped over ways of knowledge in realms of dust- covered volmnes and often discouraged by the mystic mazes of subjects ranging from INIilitary Tactics to Calculus and Home Economics, at last sight a safe harbor and with beaming faces set down the log of our tempestuous four years ' trip. It has been a struggle for mere existence from the time when, four years ago, a.s young things fresh and green our boys rushed and wrestled and fought in vain for an empty right — a coveted cane. Sadness overshadowed ' 14 with its great dark wings, and a week later when a few venturesome Freshies suspended from the perilous heights of the flagpole the chief skeleton in the Biological " Lab " and decorated its form with the enemy ' s numerals, ' 13, the Faculty sternly tabooed such childish cond uct. Further, the " powers that be " manifested their contempt for the babies by fining them fifty round dollars to pay for poor " Bones, " now a heap of broken and various sized particles which a rapid and ungraceful descent from the lofty pole had caused. Now followed a lull in Freshman exuberance. The class settled down to regular work-a-day existence, broken by a few class struggles, a ball game and then the most thrilling of all, their first class party, early in the second semester. Care- fully and well did a half dozen wee " Baby " coeds mix and bake quantities of wonderful luscious cakes, with frosting inches thick. These were to grace the festive board; but the eagle-eyed Sophs, still cruel and fiendish, stole into the hiding place where the goodies lay and at one fell swoop carried all far beyond the Babies reach. That same night saw a wonderful Sophomore party with the cakes the center of the banquet board. The Fresh had been trapped, blindly ensnared, Init their honor could not be brought so low and go unavenged. With forty brave and bold, they stormed the Sophomores and laid ' 13 ' s colors in the dust. The dawn of ' 14 ' s Sophomore year brought a new series of events to this still youthful class. Cupid Math his artful cunning had singled out several of the students and th ?y left the sheltering fold of college life for the " ranks of the blessed. " New members came, liked the place, and stayed on. The " Rush " took place, and with victory nodding smilingly on ' 14 ' s shoulders, life again seemed suffused with rosy tints and mu?h joy. It was as Juniors that ' 14 really asserted itself, and as upper-classmen maintained lordly dignity and splendor. Again 36 the lures of matrimony proved too strong and one young- lady of Noble name entered the realms of a Castle bold. Many victories on the gridiron, successes in the classroom and many defeats had tried and tested thefee hardy Juniors, and when they proposed publishing the Artemisia, the idea won approval, and the book we hope, was a " thing of beauty and a joy forever. " Still not to be outdone by any other class, and in order to inaugurate a new era in Nevada spirit, the Juniors, under McPhail ' s and Webster ' s guidance and with the combined efforts and physical support of the entire male student body, planted a wonderful " N " on Peavine Mountain. Whitewash and cement are not alluring objects to carry three or four miles up one high hill, and at times the college youths wearied in " well-doing, " but ' 1-i ' s persistency won, and the " N " in all its splendor casts its watchful eye over the surrounding city. Then who does not remember the Mackay Day which through Junior boosting was inaugurated last spring The picture of all the men in college cleaning up the track, the co-eds busily preparing mighty tasty " eats " still lives with us and again we proudly remark: " This was due to ' 14. " Oh, yes, we must not forget the noble work of our men in football, track and basket ball. Some have been on the college teams four years and have proven to be pillars of strength as well as " some " athletes. The Junior Class as Seniors have come " into their own. " The year has been rich with events and as the beckoning finger of time indicates that but a few short months remain before all must step out into real matter-of-fact, humdrum life, little remains to be entered in the log before we disembark after our four years ' voyage, but if the time has been shortened by the happy hours spent queening in Mr. Layman ' s sacred domain or in the frequent walks around the Quad, then may we all sav in chonis, " ' 14 has not lived in vain.

JUNIOR JOTTINGS Once upon an Autumn ' s day, Fifteen toddled up the hill, High-school credits in our pockets Sight of Fourteen made us ill. Strange things happened to us shortly Tie-ups kept us from our beds. But, though victory crowned our banners. Blue caps crowned our little heads. Hay-ride gave we, and Glee and Party. Thus the year we ambled through. Kept our colors always waving Showed them what the " Fresh " could do. Sixteen next year filled our places, Read our posters, wore our caps. Plucky youngsters, fighting bravely, Often meet with such mis-haps. Then, of course, they lost the cane-rush, Freshies always do, — ' Tis so. Sophomores must discipline them. That ' s what happened to us, you know. 54 Junior days came all too quickly, Brought us plugs and corduroys. White vests and canes upon occasions, We were tasting Junior joys. Responsibilities showered upon us Juniors all, alas must toil. Over Math and Chem and Physics, We ' ve burned quarts of midnight oil. In athletics, too, a place we gained. Met all comers, fair and square; With Abbott, " Big Chief Rich " and Hylton, Of winners we sure have our share. Baby Seventeen we ' re guiding With a wise and steady hand, That they may be a credit to us, No one ' s boasting, understand. Fifteen now has grown to manhood. Shown U. N. that we ' re alive. Through future years shall ring the echo Rah ! Nevada, Rah ! One-five ! — M. P., ' 15. 55 SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS COIN CAZIER, President JACK PEARSON, Vice-President MARY RAITT, Secretary FRANK FAKE, Treasnrer HARRY HOVEY, President GLEN ENGLE, Vice-President VERA LEMMON, Secretary IRVING VAN DALSEM, Treasurer i 58 SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY IXTEEN has passed from the infant stage and has come to be quite a factor in college life. We always were rather famous, even if fame once consisted merely in ferociousness and pers.everance. But our very beginning was auspicious; for we entered our strenuous Freshman year with numbers that caused the newspapers to write glowing accounts of " The largest class in the history of Nevada. " Now, don ' t say that newspapers always exaggerate. Sometimes they do, but these newspapers were perfectly nice ones and they told the straight truth, until they began to devote a column a day to our successes and our grand failure in our dealings with the Sophomores. Well, what if " they, " — once upon a time that " they " was spoken with withering contempt, but now all is peace, — did win the cane rush? We fought every morning battle valiantly, we brought our enemies to defeat in more than one pitched battle, and, doubt it not, we would have struggled all day for that cane if " they " had only given us the chance. They were teeming with strategy and they worked it well. We lost the cane, but we gained the best lot of spirit that you ever heard of and we used it, too. We suppose that the football game that followed close on the rush, and before we had ever regained our bearings, is still funny to our older friends. We insist, that in spite of the score, it was a good game, and we put our spirit to the test. Our athletes have been numerous and tremenduously successful. McCubbin ' s kick on the football field is far famed, and he has made some visitors sit up and take notice. And what of Henningsen? He ' s quite famous himself. So is Jepson, and not only in athletics, for he is going to Oxford next year, and you don ' t get there without brilliant work. Fake, too, has made a name for himself and his class. But if we named any more, or all, of our heroes we would leave the impression that we played football and did the high jump and a few dashes all the time, and studied and had social events on the side. Oh, yes, the Sophomores stud.y. We have several shining lights who have established most interesting, even flattering- records. And yet we are still guilty of plenty of frolicsome spirit, which, we are informed, we should have laid aside with our Freshman badges and memories. As Freshmen we were serious enough to learn several things and to plan nice parties. Our first party was a hay ride which was thoroughly enjoyable and very much all right, much to the disappointment of our then hostile pursuers, who not only caused a hay-rack to vanish, but made electric lights an impossibility. They waited up till the " wee sma ' hours " with a garden hose, perhaps trying to wash away the odorous powders which they had sifted over the dance floor. And can we forget the Glee? No, it will never be forgotten and we feel that though others may equal,, none will ever excel it. So this year when we started happily on our second year of college life, we already had an interesting past which 59 CUB spurred us on to greater activity. When we had tormented the new arrivals with midnight contests and cold plunges, and had tested their power of endurance to the utmost, we had another cane rush. This was much more exciting than the one of the previous year, and we came out of the pile of wriggling arms and legs with the cane. Then, you might believe our purple and gold flew high, and we thought " we were pretty smart. " As flags of truce we sent out our bids for the Hop, and on a certain night in November we made everybody happy. Our second dance was every bit as pleasant as our first, and our social reputation was established. With our turbulent Freshman days over and our superior Sophomore ones fast coming to an end, we are looking ea-erly toward the placid future as Juniors. As yet we are afraid to look further. Senior responsibilities have still to gam chirm " before appeal. But until ' sixteen, we shall go on with the same old spirit and do the same good things. It . . — M. J. R. looks promising. I i 60 FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS jFirgt Semester DEAN BRYANT, President GARDNER CHISM, Vice-President AGNES CONSTABLE, Secretary CHARLES SHORT, Treasurer DEAN BRYANT, President A ERNON ORGAN, Vice-President ELSIE FARRER, Secretary EDWARD NEASHAM, Treasurer 62 FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY T is safe to say that during their first week the Freshman Class of 1913 made people aware of their presence. They entered to the number of about seventy-five and immediatel.y were the objects of comment because of the size of their male members. The Juniors immediately adopted them as their children and proceeded to instruct them in regard to the rushes and street fights, and the use of green paint and the ditch. Profiting by this instruction, the Freshmen, to the number of about twenty, sallied forth to look for victims. They met their match, however, and, having struggled with the " Sophs " for a half-hour and aroused the ire of a certain body of worshippers, who sent for the police, they agreed to call the matter even. A few mornings later the Seniors hung up the dummy for the- Sophomores to defend, but no " Sophies " appeared, their hearts being weak. The dummy was cut down and thrown ignom- miously into the ditch. The next morning the dummy was again hung up. The Freshmen, having stayed together that night, attacked the defending Sophomores. They cut down the dummy, tied up the " Sophs " and hustled them across the line in a way that was precision itself. Next week the cane rush settled the differences. The Sophomores in four minutes and twenty seconds won the event, which they lost in fourteen seconds the year before. Of social events there were two : the hay ride given to the Juniors, and the Sophomore Hop. The hay ride was marked by an exchange of water, seltzer, eggs, tomatoes and rocks, the last marring somewhat the beauty of some Sophomore automolfiles. By the time the Sophomore Hop arrived hostilities had been forgotten and the Sophomores gave to the Freshmen and to the University a dance and good time which was only equaled by the Freshie Glee, concerning which modesty prevents my writing except to say it was the best dance of the college year. The Freshmen have caught the Nevada spirit and our word to the upperclassmen is " Watch us grow. " —J. H. 63 A GIRL ' S A GIRL FOR A ' THAT (With Apologies to Robert Burns) Is there, for lacli of beauty, That hangs her head, an ' a ' that? Ah, foolish girl, ye must not cry. But dare look sweet for a ' that. For a ' that, an ' a ' that. Your shape may be lean or fat; Your hair may not be, and one eye may not see; Gain beauty in spite of a ' that.

It consists of over sixty members, while the next department is Agriculture, whose enrollment is twenty- nine. The enrollment last year was fifty-four, making an increase of over twelve per cent since that time. This Department, along with the Civil Engineering Department, whose enrollment is eleven, takes up the entire space in two buildings, each of whose floor space is seventy-five hundred square feet or more. The Mechanical building, which is the older of the two, contains the Wood Shop, Forge Room, Foundry, and Machine Shop. The machinery in use is all up to date and this College turns out men who are no mean machinists. The Electrical Building contains, besides its laboratory, a large room some thirty by eighty feet, offices, classrooms, and drawing rooms. This building is as yet new, and so the machinery used in it is necessarily newer than some of that in the Mechanical Building. While the electrical laboratory is directly under the supervision of Professor Scrugham and Mr. Powers, the lechan- ical Building is managed somewhat different. Mr. Preston, the instructor, has inaugurated a system entirely new. He is giving a course which is known as M. E. 29, and is called shop management. He himself could not cover all of the shops, so the various students taking- this course do it for him. There is always one or more of these student assistants, as they might 6f; be called, in each shop, all of the time. In a business shop they might be called foremen, but here they are not quite that. They give instruction in the various courses, help the students, besides keeping them busy. At present when the men come to work they take a time card from one case and mark down the time, not returning it, but placing it in another case. These cases are locked ten minutes after the commencement of the the period. At the close of the period, the cases are again opened, and the cards are filled out and returned to the original case. This keeps a good record on the men. This, however, is to be done away with next year, and a time clock will be put in its place. Then each man will stamp his card on entering and on leaving the shop, and the times will all be kept in a neat orderly manner, and will give absolutely correct time. Next year also, there will be an entirely new set of exercises to be done, all of which are useful and can be put to practical use. This will reduce the running expenses of the University, for it will use what was before thrown away. Along with these improvements will come a new set of instruction cards showing each and every different movement used in the making of an article , which will give the student the right way of going at a thing. As before stated, the different shops are very complete, and new machinery is continually coming. The Machine Shop contains a Gray Planer, a Universal Milling Machine, a Shaver, Five Lathes, a Mechanical Hack Saw, two Emery Wheels, two Drill Presses, a Drill Sharpener, Benches, Bench Vises, and a Tool Room stocked with all necessary tools. Of these, two of the lathes and the drill sharpener have arrived this semester. The power for the machinery and also for the blast in the Forge Room, is furnished by a 15 H. P., 220-volt, 60-cycle Wagner Motor. The Forge Room contains Air Blast Forges, Vises, an Iron Cutter, Bench, and has all the necessary tools. The Foundry contains a Whiting iron melting, air draft motor driven cupola, and a small cupola for brass, babbit or any such metal. Here the castings are made which are machined in the next room. From here are turned out anything from lathe beds to axle bearings. The Wood Shop on the second floor contains two dozen benches with lockers. The tools are all first class. Besides the Jig Saw ,Band Saw, a Universal Wood Working Machine and the several Wood Lathes, there is a new Crescent Universal Wood Working Machine, which has just been installed, and with it anything can be done from ripping vip a piece of raw lumber to boring a square hole. In the Electrical Building the laboratories are just as complete. The steam and gas equipment consists of a 100-H. P. Return Tubular Babcock and Wilcox Boiler, a 100-H. P. Corliss Engine, a 30-H. P. Buffalo Forge Engine, and a smaller 15-H. P. Engine. Also a Curtis Turbine, a De Laval Turbine and a large three-cylinder Standard Gas Engine, a Fairbanks- and Morse Gas Engine. The Buffalo Forge Engine is equipped with an Alden dynamometer and there are indicators, gauges, guage testers, a Sargent gas colorimeter, pyrometers and many other pieces of apparatus that help to make the course useful. This year we have received a new Swedish Crude Oil Engine, which has been set up. One of this year ' s Seniors worked it up as a thesis, and has finally gotten it to run perfectly smooth. It is a powerful machine for its size, giving out 15 H. P. It is a one-cylinder engine, and looks a great deal like an ordinary marine engine. 67 The electrical part of the laboratory contains machines of all types. There is a large switch board upon which may be seen ammeters, volt meters, a Tirrell regulator, a G. E. syneroscope, and a converter with transformers. The voltage that is at hand vary from as low as five or six volts to as high as four thousand volts. Here may be worked out problems of any commercial work. There are both high and low potential transformers, rheostats and all sorts of apparatus used in the study and practical work of electricity. At present there are two pieces of interesting machinery under construction in the Machine Shop. One of these is a gas engine, an invention of someone who has not the use of a machinev shop. As far as the work has proceeded, none of us seem to be able to determine as to how it will run. The other point of interest is the little locomotive which has been under construction for the past two or three years. We have at last gotten to the point where we know it will run. The locomotive is designed for a 5-H. P. boiler to carry 250 pounds pressure. At present the boiler is uuder construction, but the engine runs smooth under 50 pounds of air pressure. Its length with tender will total between six and seven feet, and completed it will weigh near 800 pounds. This will be our best yet to put out, and we hope to have it on exhibition at the World ' s Fair in 1915. Besides doing work at the University, the men are taken to different places in or out of the State as the chance happens. The first week in IMareh ten of the students went to Carlin, Nevada, to run a test on the power plant at that place. They found that it would pay to install a new plant, which idea will be carried out this next summer under the supervision of this department. On the 23d of April two of the men left for Bewawe to run a test upon the locomobile power plant at that place, which supplies power for the Buckhorn JMining Company. They will ascertain where and how to raise the efficiency of the plant, and also how to prevent the corosion of the engines. Although there are several plants of this type in America, this is the only one at present that is in use. About the 12th of i Iay, a test will be run on the water power plant at Lanville. Nevada, to determine whether it be accepted or not. There is one other thing which comes under the same supervision, and that is the Electrical Section of the Nevada Safety First Association. The last meeting v.-as held in the Electrical Building on the 20th of April. A constitution was drawn up and officers were elected. Superintendents from all the power plants in Nevada, save two, are members of this association. Several papers were given, and among those present were a good many U. of N. Alumni who have risen in the electrical world. These meetings will be held semi-annually and as has been shown will he snceessfiil as is every other enterprise of the Mechanical and Electrical Department of the University of Nevada. — O, W. L., ' 16. 68 nmm O the prospective mining student, the Mackay School of Mines offers many advantages. The facilities for the course are complete to the minutest detail. The Mackay Mining School is a commodious building of two stories, built in the colonial style and designed by the artist, Stanford White. The first floor contains the geological lecture room and mining library, the geological and mining museum, the weighing room, assay- ing laboratory and metallurgical and mining labratory. The second floor contains the mineralogical and research laboratories, drafting room, mining lecture room and offices. The northwest wing houses the collections of the departments connected with the School of Mines, and includes maps, models and pictures illustrating some of the famous mines and mining camps of Nevada. Besides a general collection secured from the mining congress at Goldfield in 1909, the museum contains the United States Geological Survey collection of the rocks and minerals of Goldfield, the collection formerly in the State Capitol, the famous Cole collection and the Malcolm McDonald collection presented to the department at the death of Mr. McDonald. In addition to the regular class work, which is divided into mining and metallurgical courses, the mining students visit some of the famous mining districts of Nevada. The famous Comstock mines have been the subjects of their visits here- tofore, but it is probable that next year they will include in their trip Tonopah and Goldfield. The classwork of the mining course embraces two distinct divisions, practical mining methods and metallurgical methods. Under the first division excava- tion and transportation, timbering and pumping, lighting and draining are emphasized. Under the metallurgical division, the processes used in treating, amalgamating, concentrating, eyaniding and smelting gold, silver and copper, are taught. 69 HE College of Civil Engineer, while not attracting so much attention as some of the others, is, nevertheless, contributing its own share toward the activities of the University. To the average student Civil Engineering means surveying, but surveying while very important, is only one phase of civil engineering work. This department offers courses in structural analysis and design, reinforced concrete and masonry design and construction, hydraulics and water power engineering, railroad engineering, highway engineering, irrigation and water supply. The equipment of the Department consists of a complete assortment of surveying instruments of various types and makes, a completely euipped cement laboratory and a Reihle testing machine, as well as a number of such drafting instruments as student cannot provide for themselves because of their cost. During the year trips are taken for the purpose of visiting engineering pro.jeets under way in the neighborhood. Several such have recently been made to Lahontan Dam now being built on the Carson River by the United States Reclamation Service. The opportunities for graduates of this college are particularly good. The Southern Pacific railroad is doing a great deal of improvement work lately and besides is building a new branch line. Also, there are nearly always new power plant projects being carried out somewhere in the state calling for competent men. Nevada men who are taking Civil Engineering are particularly fortunate in securing positions with Nevada companies as people are beginning to realize more and more the value of Nevada men on Nevada jobs. 70 HE Department of A,rieulture has spoken tcr itself during the past year. Its ame has ' J f t state because of the work that it has done and the benefits that the farmers m he surroundu g eonntr, have derived from the short courses that have been given and the tests that have been l ' ' ere lZl ment has ,ust been completed with the building of a large and spacxous _ da.ry ' J ' J models in farm machinery and dairy work have been installed. The opening of tins budd ng x a heralded with a grand cafeteria lunch, at which the " Aggie boys " were hosts to all the students nd -Ity- The Experiment Station. Farm is well known. Here the students get a hrst hand l- ;; ; ; " gating and growmg farms and gardens. The farm animals consisting of high bred cattle fine bred -« " ' ' ' ' - ' ' ■ are excelled by few western colleges. Many of the animals drew blue ribbon prizes at the « f f j;; . ,,,,,,,tive The short courses are of the greatest significance to the community and to the people of the state.

Despite this fact almost half of the faculty is engaged in teaching in the College of Arts and Science, and almost half of our students receive at the end of their senior year the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The course as it at present stands is composed largely of elective subjects although a certain amount of the work consists of required subjects, each student ' s course is guided by the nature of his major, and the advice of his major instructor. This allows the student considerable latitude but at the same time insures his receiving a well balanced course, and one fitted to his peculiar needs. The Junior College consists of three divisions. The first of these consists of the language group, the second of social science, and the third consists of the scientific group. The first division offers both the classical and modern languages; the second embraces economics, sociology, psychology and a wide range of work in history, while the third division includes the study of mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry and geology. Much of the work in the last two groups is arranged in such a manner as to furnish the pre-medical and pre-legal student with all the prerequisite work preparatory to a course in medicine or law. In recent years so much emphasis has been placed upon practical work that the schools of classical education have lost some of their popularity. In view of this fact almost all the universities have reorganized their liberal arts course, making it more elective and more adaptable to the needs of the present day. 72 HE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION has grown to be one of the most important branches in the University beeanse it trains the graduating students to be modern teachers. The courses offered by this school are many and are exceedingly well arranged. The " History of Education " course gives a broad view of education as it has developed. The study of success or failure in the past gives the student a rational attitiide toward modern problems. The course in " Child Study " gives the student a chance to see the child ' s point of view. These two courses are taken up after the student has a thorough basic course in general psychology. The students upon completing these courses are prepared to take the teaching course which comes in the last year of college life. In this course, students often substitute for the public school teachers as well as teach classes of their own. The teaching course is divided into theoretical and practical work. The former deals with the solution of schoolroom problems, while the. practical work is application of the theories. There are four teaching units in the course, two each semester; namely reading and language or geography, the first semester, and arithmetic and history the second. For the first two weeks of each unit the student observes the regular teacher conduct the clas, " . For the remaining five weeks of the unit the observer takes over the class and conducts it as her own. In addition to the above courses, the students are given special training in lusic and Art. These courses are given to meet the requirements of the State law which demands that music and art nnist be tauyht in every public school of the State. — F.

CHORUS : On! Nevada, win that score today; we will back you ev ' ry time. See the team is pushing down the field, now steady they hold the line. So on, Nevada, keep our colors high, while the hills send back the echo — Rah rah Rah-rah, Nevada ; Rah-rah, Nevada, we have won ! Berkley may be famous, and so may Stanford, too. But when it comes to loyalty, Nevada ' s sons are ever true. For still we love that college, which stands upon the hill; Our football band plays every man for the silver and the blue. 74 i OFFICERS OF THE BATTALION Major— hESTEU HAERIMAN.

The organ- ization at Nevada consists of a battalion of two companies and a band. The band turns out once a week for review or parade and the drilling always shows an improvement on these days, as the martial music adds life and vim to the work of the men. Almost without exception the Cadets are interested in the military work, but once in a while some- one becomes absent minded and allows three cuts to be placed against him. The guilty party is then given a day ' s vacation at reduced pay, after which he returns to duty, sadder and wiser, with many good resolutions, and a Docket- book depleted to the extent of two dollars. A high degree of efficiency has been attained by our battalion, which always receives praise from the inspecting officer. This year, the different military schools are to be graded according to their merits, the ten receiving the most favorable reports from the inspecting officer, are to be known as distinguished institutions. It is the commandant ' s fondest dream and the desire of all the Cadets, that Nevada shall rank among the excellent ten. Every year at inspection, the rival companies " A " and " B, " drill their best in competition with each other to win the honor of possessing the flag for a year. This honor was won last year by " A " company, but the " B " company men are not yet convinced that they were not better than their opponents and claim that they will reverse the decision at the next inspection. 78 If SAGEBRUSH STAFF EOBEET P.

OF N. SAGEBRUSH HE SAGEBRUSH is Nevada ' s weekly student publication. It is eight pages long and five columns wide and its circulation is probably greater than that of any newspaper published in the State of Nevada with the exception of the Reno dailies. The Sagebrush is a member of the Nevada Press Association. The Sagebrush has gone by that name for only four years. Up to that time it was called the " Student Record. " Any college or prep-school can have a " Student Record, " but only Nevada can have a Sage- brush. The Student Body changed its name and as " U. of N. Sagebrush, " it is known to the hundreds of old students of Nevada, to the Rhodes scholars at Oxford, to engineers in Canada, and to mining men in South America. With the authority of the Board of Regents of this University, the Sagebrush goes into every High School in Nevada, to some of the more important ones in Utah, and to every accredited High School in California. It is by this medium that old U. of N. each week carries her influence to the students of this State and her neighbors. There is much that could be written about the Sagebrush; were it written the length of this account might not attract the reader of these pages. However, at the risk of adding one or two lines, an appeal to you alumni of Nevada will be placed here. It is simply this: " Write of your doings and your whereabouts to the Sagebriish. These are the reasons: First, your friends at college are interested in you; second, your name will be communicated to the Secretary of the Alumni Association that her record may be kept up to date; third, your success as a graduate will serve as inspiration to those in college now; and the Sagebrush, reaching your old college mates, will acquaint them with that which you are doing. Sincerely to you. Alumnus of Nevada, this appeal is made. Take, therefore, your pen in hand and let your Alma Mater know what you are doing for her and for yourself. — R. P. F. 82 o m Mm THE BIG DANCES HEY say, and they are the unknown but never the minus quantity, and whose word we have come to regard as law, that dancing is a lost art. They say that it has been superceded by the graceful or the ungraceful, which all depends upon the point of view, gyrations which South America has sent us labeled " tango. " They can say what they wish, but we maintain that dancing is still an art very much admired and extremely popular. For evidence gaze upon the chandelier or the curtains of the college student ' s room and you will see countless multi-colored dance cards, many fancy and artistic ones, and very many little white sheets that speak eloquently of basket ball informals, to say nothing of Artemisia benefits. This year the white cards have been numerous and the decorated formal programs will number five as always. Early in November, the fourteenth to be exact, the Sophmores were hosts at their Hop where timid little Freshmen were given their one grand and golden opporutnity to make their formal bow to society. And no prettier surroundings for a debut could have been desired. The Sophomores, when quite young and still novices at the art of entertaining, won enviable honors by the success of their Glee a year ago. Now they are experienced, w hich was demonstrated by the Hop. The old 83 Gym never looked prettier; the rafters and balcony rail were hidden under billows of dainty pink crepe paper and the big lights were softened by flower shades of the same hue. The music was screened otf by pink ' lattice work, and on either side of the rostrum was a table laden with punch bowl and plates of tasty wafers. From this party, the dancer took one more trophy to hang among his collection of relics of former " best times ever. " It was a little purple booklet with gold ribbons and lettering to remind one of the colors of sixteen, inclosing i etween its covers the twenty-four perfect dances. " Then in December came the Prom, when the Juniors provided the best time imaginable and sent us on into the new semester with pleasant memories. This time we danced under a canopy of pine boughs, ferns and red shaded lights. The atmosphere was full of CJhristmas decorations and good cheer, and we sighed happily as the orchestra played " Aloha, " and reluctantly we prepared to hang away the red and white cards that marked another jolly time. The Military Ball is entirely in the hands of the Cadets and their invariable success always speaks well of their ability. Again the Gym is transformed from, well just what it is, a bare old gym, into this time a place alive with patriotic decorations. Not only are the national colors much in evidence, but the blue and silver of Nevada is conspicuous, and sort of ' thrills you when you see the combination. This is really a brilliant affair, as all military functions are, for there is a dash of color and an atmosphere that simply can ' t be acquired at any other dance. It is distinguished, too, by the presence of the Governor and his staff. Next, the infants are given their first and only chance to cover themselves with glory. As yet we have only promise of what the Seventeen Glee will be, but we have had proof of their aliveness ever since they entered college and we are looking for something very much out of the ordinary. The Glee is always a happy party and always original. " It requires a vivid imagination to picture the dignified Senior Ball following right on the heels of the merry informal Glee. There is generally a lapse of time between the two sufficiently long for the graduates to assume the dignity and appear quite grov.rn up and devoid of foolish tendencies. The ball will start, it always has, and we guess it will this ' time, with a stately air. The Seniors will smile superciliously, the girls will cast furtive glances at their trains and try to appear accus- tomed to them, and for at least six dances things in general will be constrained. But soon all formal barriers will be broken down, the Seniors will find that in spite of the fact that yesterday they wore their cap and gown and received their sheep- skins with all the privileges thereof, they are still full of fun and spirits. Another program is hung on the curtain, and another year is done. Can " they " still say that dancing is a lost art? jyf jj ' - S.| YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION MYETLE NEASHAM RAYMOND, President CLARA ISABELLE SMITH, Vice-President LAURENA MARZEN, Secretary CARNA DAMI I, Treasurer WINIFRED WYGAL, General Secretary MAUDE PRICE, Social Committee RACHEL RAND, Bible Study Committee GERTRUDE SHADE, Association News Committee ZOE GOULD, Social Service Committee MARJORIE I IEADE, Tokyio Committee LYSLE RUSHBY, Membership Committee 8() YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION HE Social Movement, the Woman Movement, Modern Study upon any subject which involves people or progress, brings one no matter where the starting point, to these phrases. If you go into politics, into business, ' into social service either actively or through the medium of books, you will find society at large recognizing that this is the era of the woman. Because the activities of the Young Women ' s Christian Association fall entirely within the range of the social movement and because it sounds the note of service in a time when service is the slogan m every sphere of thinking, it justifies its existence as an organization; because the Y. W. C. A. is doing a social work by means of scientific methods, it holds the modern interest and attention; because the one perfect social order depends upon the regeneration either mentally or morally of the individual, the Y. W. C. A. may be recognized as a force working to reconcile the one to the many, the unsocialized being to the group. As it is now organized the Y. W. C. A. is but eight years old, although its principles and aims were embodied as much as twenty-five years ago in a similar organization. It is an interdenominational order. Its activities are directed by a national board of directors and are carried out by women who are experts in their line. Miss Blanche Geary, who at the head of finance and buildings, came to the National Board from one of the largest designing and model home contracting firms in the country. There are a great many others who are internationally renowned. The student department is but one part of the association plan and operation. City work, travelers aid, factory clubs, rural branches and foreign work all enter into this social program of women for women. ' In the University of Nevada the Association is but comparatively new. Like every other State University in America it has a State Secretary who is a welfare worker employed to serve in any way at any time. At Nevada as elsewhere the Y. W. C. A. offers an opportunity for the development in girls of the big sister spirit and the spirit of active service. Lessons of leadership, responsibility, altruism and democracy are taught by the Association. The present membership includes sixty-five, who bear more or less relation to the purpose and ideals for which the Y. W. C. A. has been organized. The work of the girls who belong is physical, social, mental and spiritual in that the Association seeks to bring out and develop these traits in each individual. That they have so earnestly and successfully joined in this national betterment movement for girls, is a subject of congratulation to the women students of the Univer- sity of Nevada. 87 " L. F. G. ?5 F. G. ! " It was almost the first thing I heard when as a green — oh very green — and unsophisticated Fresh- man I came to Manzanita Hall and learned to spear olives with a hatpin and eat tamales with a shoe bone. " L. F. G. ! " We Freshies nsed to come upon little groups of girls mysteriously whispering and giggling in the corridors, little groups that invariably broke up and scattered when we approached, and to all our eager inquiries about the meaning of those letters we received the unsatisfactory reply, " Oh, you ' ll find out soon enough, all right! " accompanied by maddening winks and grins. It bothered us a lot more — this mystery — than did the impending entrance ex. in English. In sheer desperation I hazarded the guess that it meant a " lot of fool girls " ; then they made me carry three arm- loads of wood from the basement up to second deck, and I decided that " L. F. G. " stood for a " lot of fierce gorillas. " That guess was nearly confirmed by an ordeal technically known as the " initiation, " a function which we attended in fancy dress and undress, representing among our numbers everything from angels to his satanic majesty himself. Yes, it was every bit as bad as it is advertised ; our hostesses of the mysterious order of L. F. G. marched us blindfolded upstairs to throw us out of the window; they branded us with curling irons, and dashed our ever-rising hopes with ice water; they put angle worms down our necks, and marched us barefooted over kernels of rice. Then they read us the riot act, and laid down the law, which as L. F. G. members, it v as our privilege to obey, and we ended up with a feast of ice cream, cake and bon- bons, and a regular rah-rah rough house. Oh, we all survived, and paid down our ten cents per month and joyously looked forward to getting it back on the new girls next year. But, seriously, it ' s great. I can ' t tell you what L. F. G. means, for I ' ve taken a solemn vow by all that ' s holy to keep it a profound secret; — to have something mysterious with which to impress new girls in years to come, you know. But more than anything else it is the " L. F. G. " that starts the new girls to saying " we " instead of " I " in their letters home. It gives us that " one of ' em " feeling of sisterly comradeship, for we all belong to it — have to, of course, — but are, never- theless, just mighty glad to belong. And no, dear reader, L. F. G. doesn ' t mean a " lot of fool girls, " nor yet a " lot of fierce gorillas, " but if you ' re really curious come live at Manzanita and we ' ll let you in on everything — head first. — R. A. 88 TENNIS HE past year has brought no improvement in tennis, that is in the courts and the number of people interested in it. During the past year the control of this game has passed from the Faculty, the Girls ' and the Boys ' clubs, into a single organization known as the University of Nevada Tennis Association. This organization desires to establish tennis as a recognized branch of athletics and to produce a tennis team worthy of representing Nevada. For ten or fifteen years tennis has existed in some form at Nevada. The difficulties confronting the early tennis enthusiasts were chiefly those concerning the court. However, by donating their time and money a court was built. This court was succeeded by several others, until the Mackay Athletic Field was constructed, when three oil courts were built. The Faculty Tennis Club had control of one of them, and it put up the present backstops around all three courts. The girls and boys each had charge of one of the other courts and they each formed a tennis club. Last year two of the courts were changed to cement while the third was turned into an outdoor basket bail court. The three tennis clubs still continued as separate organizations even though there were only two courts. Shortly after the beginning of this year a meeting was held of all those interested in tennis. It had been proposed that the three clubs be merged into a single organization, and a committee was appointed to draw up a constitution. The constitution was adopted and the University of Nevada Tennis Association became the successor of the three older organizations. The Tennis Association hopes to be able to build up the interest in tennis, to make further improvements on the courts and to have a regular tennis team. When Nevada produces a team which can successfuly compete with the teams from California Universities, there will be no difficulty in sustaining the student ' s interest. To produce such a team will be the work of years since a good tennis player must have experience and the skill which comes only from continued practice. In the meanwhile there will be a series of tournaments and perhaps some outside matches. By this means it is hoped to stimulate interest and train the players to be sure of themselves, in short to be worthy of representing Nevada. — T. L. W. 89 DEBATING SOCIETY ITH the establishment of the Public Speaking Department under the able leadership of Professor A. E. Turner a new impetus was given to a hitherto neglected yet sorely needed college activity. The Regents, in instituting this new course could hardly have conceived of the great intluenee that this department was destined to wield upon the college activities. No sooner were the classes in the department organized than Mr. Turner set about with inde- fatigable energy to effect a permanent organization, whose work would be to foster debates and other literary activities. His work bore fruit. The society has been organized and the permanency and influence thereof depends upon those men and women who will enlist in its ranks and devote their time and energy to make it reach an ideal state. The history of the Debating Society of the U .of N., since it is in its infancy, cannot fill pages. It cannot boast of ' " scalps " which it has attached to its belt, nor can it at this time boast of its accomplishments. However, a brief sketch of its organization may not be amiss. On January 19, 1914, a meeting was called for the permanent organization of the society. A committee was appointed to draw up a constitution, which was adopted at the following meeting. The officers chosen to lead it through its adolescent period are: Henry Wolfson, president; J. I. Cazier, vice-president; Jean Bartholemew, secretary; T. L. Withers, manager; Professor H. E. Turner, faculty director. The Intercollegiate Debate with the Brigham Young University took place in the Gymnasium on April 10, with Adel- bert Pflaging and Henry Wolfson representing the U. of N. Debating Society. The debate was a good one, but the Utah men were stronger in argument and experience and the Nevada boys went down to defeat. Their defeat taught them a great many points, however, which only experience can bring, and our boys will profit by it. The presence of the members of the Supreme Court as officers of the evening, and the interest that was shown in the debate foretell the permanency of debating as a University activity. — H. W. 90 BIG " N " SOCIETY S early as 1910 there was talk of organizing a society, composed of the men who had won their block letters, to fnrther the interests of the University of Nevada and to promote athletics in particular. It was not until January, 1912, however, that at a meeting of the Block " N " men presided over by Lester Harriman, a committee consisting of Silas Ross, William Settlemeyer and Mortimer Charles was appointed to draw up a constitution and by-laws for the proposed organization. On February 7, 1912, this committee presented to the " N " men the result of their work which was formally adopted and the " Block N Society " formed. As the first officers of the society Eric Reay Mackay was elected president, Lester Harriman vice-president, V. M. Henderson secretary and William Settlemeyer treasurer. In order to get in closer touch with students of the state high schools and forward the idea of increasing the attendance at this University the " Society " immediately approached the State Academic League regarding getting control of the State Academic Track Meets. This object was accomplished with very little trouble and now the Academic Meets are under the control of the " Block N Society " and all the officials on the field are composed of men who have won their " N ' s " in some athletic sport at the University of Nevada. In April, 1912, officers for the coming year were elected, the only change resulting in the choice of Harvey MePhail as secretary. The following year under the leadership of this set of men and chiefly due to the work of the president, Reay Mackay the society advanced until it became, with the exception of the Associated Students, the leading organization on the hill. The " Block N Society " at the present time has about twenty men as its active members and bids fair to have its most prosperous year. As its officers it has Harvey McPhail, president ; Clarke Webster, vice-president ; George Ogilvie, secretary, and Joe McDonald, treasurer. Meetings are held monthly and matters brought up, discussed and acted upon that are deemed to be helpful to the University, and the society does its best in every way to carry out its motto, " The University of Nevada first, last and always. " 92 WOMEN ' S " N " SOCIETY HIS year marks the first organization of the women of the University to promote athletics for women. On the 6th of April the girls who made the basket ball team last season met and formed themselves into a body for the purpose of increasing the interest in women ' s athletics and to give greater force to all rulings in basket ball. The membership is to include all those who have earned their Gothic " N " pin by participating in a game with either Berkeley or Stanford. Heretofore, there was no tie binding together the girls who had worked to make the basket ball team successful. Now the women in the society hope to become an efficient working organization both for women ' s athletics and a power for the promotion of the Student Body. Next year the girls are going to get the Freshmen girls interested in basket ball in order to get more out for practice and lay the foundations for a team that can win from Stanford and Berkeley. The officers elected were as follows : President, Dorothy Bird ; Vice-President, Francis Smith ; Secretary, Ethel Brown ; Treasurer, Lysle Rushby; Members, Lelia White, Grace Mahan, Georgia Young, Lydia Colyer, Florence Nelligan, Lucille Gallagher, Ruth McKissiek, Edith Taylor, Ruth Woods. 94 THE ENGINEERING CLUB HE ENGINEER ' S CLUB is a society composed of undergraduate students and the engineering faculty of the University. Professor Scrugham, acting as Supervising Engineer, directed the club during the college year of 1913 and 191-4. It was through the efforts of P. E. Raymond, the club president, and Professor Scrugham that the club reached its highest efficiency during the present year. In fact the work carried on by the club during the ye ar was greater than that of all the previous years combined. At this time, the great " Safety First Movement " was just becoming a popular topic. The Engi- neers realized that this was a fertile field in which to direct their efforts. This thought was discussed at various meetings, and committees were appointed to develop the movement. These committees accomplished their work with " exceptional ability and efficiency. The days set for the conference were January 26 and January 27, 1914. During these two days many meetings were held. The opening meeting, presided over by Mr. W. E. Wallace, of the Nevada State Industrial Commission, was held in the Gymnasium at 2:00 o ' clock, Monday, the 26th. In this meeting, the relations of the employer and employee were freely discussed along with the " Safety First Movement. " Monday evening at 7:45 o ' clock, motion pictures were shown of the manufacture of steel, miners at work, and mine rescue, and safety first on the Union Pacific. Professor Hartman of the Department of Physics of the University gave dem- onstration of the wireless telegraph, and the discharge of high potential electricity through gases. H. C. Neeld, of the execu- tive committee of the Engineers ' Club, presided. Tuesday morning was set aside for the representatives of the different railroad apprentice schools. The railroads send- ing delegates were: The Union Pacific, Oregon Short Line, Southern Pacific, and Santa Fe. A. W. Preston, Superintendent of the University Shops, acted as presiding officer. From 1- to 2 o ' clock, the College Graduate Course as offered by the Southern Pacific was ably presented by Norman Collyer, the head of that department. At 2 o ' clock the second general meeting was held, with Governor Tasker L. Oddie in charge. Professor Scrugham gave a very forceful address on the advantages of the Nitrogen Lamp, the coming illumination for all railways. Repre- sentatives of the different labor organizations gave short addresses on headlights from their point of view. " Safety First " from the standpoint of the civil engineer was presented by Professor H. P. Boardman, head of the 95 Department of Civil Engineering at the University. Accident prevention in mining was ably discussed by Edward Ryan, Inspector of Mines for the State of Nevada. In connection with his demonstrations of the pnlmotor and oxygen helmet, he explained how the safety of the mine had been taken into consideration. At 6 o ' clock the Engineers ' Club held their annual banquet. The leading representatives of labor organizations, mine owners and railways gave short addresses on their respective trades. Mr. Codd, of the Board of Regents of the University, presided as toastmaster. and welcomed the many visitors. Covers were laid for two hundred and fifteen. After the banquet the diners boarded a special train, which was equipped with the headlights to be tested. When the results of the tests were made public, it was found that the nitrogen lamp was far superior to the arc. Among the best exhibits shown at the conference was that of the Southern Pacific Company. This booth was shipped from New York City, where it was awarded the first prize in " Safety First Conference. " All in all, the Engineers ' Club has placed itself foremost in college circles. Through its etforts the Safety First ] Iove- ments was recognized in Nevada. The University of Nevada is the first educational institution to recognize the needs for this movement. Fruits of this conference have begun to ripen in the short period of one month. Already Governor Oddie has Mppointed a permanent committee on safety first regulations in the State of Nevada. Officers of the club are : P. E. Raymond, President. ■ P. G. McKinley, Secretary and Treasurer. Executive committee : H. C. Neeld, Chairman. D. D. Dessar. P. S. Cowgill. 96 AGRICULTURAL CLUB HEN the great mining excitement spread over the state several years ago many new activities were begun in in the state. The spirit of the great organizers seems to have had its influence even on university life. Societies and clubs were brought into existence which have since added life and zest to the departmental life. Foremost among these was the Agricultural Club. One is prone to think of Si Billings, the village constable, and his cronies sitting on the cracker boxes in Josh Perkins ' store discussing " craps " whenever an agricul- tural club is mentioned. Far from such! The Agricultural Club is an organization of bcosters for their de- partment, who gather every once in a while to listen to talks from scientific farmers. Aside from the technical discussions the Agricultural Club as an organization has taken a leading place in the club life of the University. They have won the club championship in football, having defeated the representatives of the other departments in 1912, and by mutual consent no game was played in 1913.

Her efforts were rewarded by an enthusiastic club of over twenty-five representative girls and several of the Faculty ladies. Th personal charm of Miss Whitney created a high opinion among the students in general as to the wonderful influence and worth of such an institution. Miss Clara Smith was unanimously elected president of the league, and under her direction, equal suffrage was given prominence in every possible way. The ladies assist the ' ' downtown ' ' club at their teas and other activities, and have been present at some vount of the more important suffrage gatherings. Regular meetings have been held monthly, and each semester one open meeting to which the entire student-body is invited, is given. At these last-named gatherings, interesting papers tracing the growth and present movement of suffrage are presented and tempting refreshments are served, thus indicating that the trend of suffrage IS not entirely away from women ' s natural element. At some of the recent meetings, several of the downtown club members delivered splendid articles on this vital subject and Miss Anne Martin has lent valuable assistance on all occasions. The Club performed its most noteworthy deed in staging a snappy little skit entitled, " How the Vote Was Won. " The cast consisted of members of the League and two daring college youths. The play, which was a screaming portrayal of English life, depicted the clever manner in which our English cousins succeeded in reaching their goal. The initial per- formance, which was given as an opening of the new auditorium in the Reno High School, encouraged the Club members and made them venture forth to the neighboring towns of Carson and Sparl s where equally successful productions were the results, to say nothing of a substantial sum which was placed in the treasury. The Club is fortunate in possessing a traveling library which is exchanged with those of other colleges, and the affiliation with otlier university leagues is made closer. Two of the college girls were delegates to the last Washoe County Suft ' rage session and did splendid service. At present, the finances do not permit a delegate to attend the National Conference, but with a few more successful plays bringing in neat proceeds, the delegate is a possibility. 102 MEN ' S GLEE CLUB LOUIS ROSE ARTHUR CLARKE LESLIE JOHNSON HOWARD FRAZEE AMOS ELLIOTT OLIVER LAYMAN TOM WALKER paritones; EARL ROSS CLARKE WEBSTER GEORGE McCREERY ALTON GLASS CURTIS MILLS LEHMAN FERRIS IRVING RIVETT PETER McKINLEY WILFRED WILEY director PROF. CHARLES HASEMAN 104 MEN ' S GLEE CLUB HE GLEE CLUB, from its first organization under Professor Haseman in 1911, has taken upon itself the the task of making music a popular element in the activities at the U. of N. That it has done this, is attested by the applause accorded it at each appearance. Last season, to further its influence, the Glee Club planned and made numerous trips to nearby cities. These trips were considered a success in that they created a wholesome interest in student life at Nevada ' s only University, and were as a whole, self- supporting. This season again marks a step toward more efficient attainment of purpose viz. : The organization of the " Warblers. " The " Warblers " are men who have sung with the Glee Club at least one season. It ' s purpose is to govern all matters of policy for the Club, to arrange all schedules, and in general to be an efficient machine in working out the destinies of the Club. A pin has as yet not been selected, but one significant of the purposes of the " Warblers " is being designed. Seven members of the Glee Club are now " Warblers. " These are: Director Charles Haseman, President Louis Rose, Secretarj and Librarian Clarke Webster, Manager and Treasurer Tom Walker, Lehman Ferris, Leslie Johnson and Peter McKinley. The total membership includes all those who have sung with the Club during its last two seasons. 106 H Dress Suit Is a Great Institution! .

T nderstanding fully the art of conducting and training voices, the Girls ' Glee Club under her direction has accomplished wonders. The cantata which was given by both Glee Clubs in Reno and in Carson was perhaps the first of its kind to be giver, at the University. This was given under the leadership of Professor Haseman, and the full house that greeted the singers was repay for the work and time which had been spent in the prep- aration of the cantata. The Glee Club has done more than merely teaching the girls music and harmony. It has brought them in contact with good music and has broadened them in an intellectual way which is invaluable. Self-confidence has been gained by all of the girls in their frequent public appearances. The many invitations to sing have been evidences of the public ' s appreciation of their singing. At Commencement, the two Glee Clubs are again going to unite and sing. Both are preparing special music together and apart and the college folks are expecting a treat. 110 V ' ' £ ' ' i ' - U. OF N. BAND LOSELY connected with the Military Department, yet even more closely connected with the social life of the TTniversity, stands the Band. Inspired by their leader they are at all times ready to turn out for rallies or at football games to encourage our athletes. Members of the band practice while the privates of the Military Department drill. At the beginning- of each semester the Band makes itself prominent from the upper story of Morrill Hall. Toward the last of each semester the rough edges are worn off, however, and the man that pushes the slide trombone is able to come in with the beat of the bass drum. The social side of the Band is evidenced year by year by their playing at the Military Ball. The military bearing of its members and the precision of execution lend a military atmosphere to a very formal occasion. 112 » PHI KAPPA PHI The Nevada Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi was instaHed May 4, 3912.

It did not seem right that Nevada spirit should show itself less plainly than either California to the West of us or Utah to the East where coUeo-e letters had already been constructed. At last, m the spring of 1913, due to the persistent boosting of some few students, it looked as though all things were favorable to starting the enterprise. It was with the idea in their minds of making this start that two Juniors, Clarke Webster and Harvey McPhail, neglected to stop one afternoon at the place appointed for the surveying class, but continued on with transit and stakes, to the southeastern side of Mount Peavine. Here on a slope of the — - ;; ;[ j;; : ' bu Truckee meadows, a block " N " of such gigantic size was laid out as to look almost impossible for the students to build, these two fellows knew the stock of Nevada spirit and were willing to take a chance. News of the start on the " N " and plans for completing it, when broached at the following f J ' were received with enthusiasm which did away with any doubts of the completion of the letter. Harvey McPhai was named to take charge of the work, and the following Sunday was appointed the day on which the T . f Q ' lock that Sunday, March 13, 1913, turned out to be such a day as to put enthusiasm into anyone s blood . O; c l f morning the hills were dotted with students. The side of the huge letter having been laid off by ™eans of -J e hand, i? became the main object this day to pile the entire enclosure with as many rocks as possible, le When th enthusiastic over the work and thousands of rocks of all sizes were brought from withm easy carrying distance. W en t e upply was partially exhausted some of those with excess " pep, " climbed farther up the mountain and with cries of warning ZZL below, started several rocks, weighing tons, down the mountain. Luck seemed to be with ' I2rl o Z: the boulders stopped some place on the " N. " At the close of their work that day the letter had taken shape and could plamh be seen from the campus, over a mile distant. whitewash A week later work began again, the work of rock piling was completed and ever, _hing was rea ly he - it In a few days the fellows were again seen headed for Peavine, this time armed with whitewash sprmlders and material. Water was hauled in barrels from a ditch about half a mile distant from the foot of the ' ' ' l2ZeT alel frl rested. From here a human chain was formed up to the " N " and buckets of water, ime ana - " Jf f ,f one fellow to the next and so to the scene of operations. The only pauses, during the day ' s work were those caused b. 129 J H investicrators of the refreshment bucket, which came at regular intervals. The work was fast an d furious, and what was looked upon as an impossibility came to be an accomplished piece of work when operations were stopped. Just as fell, the good old Nevada spell yell was given as a signal of the works ' completion. The following morning residents of the Truckee meadows were treated to a rare surprise when they awakened and saw the huge " N, " white as snow, glistening against the dark backgroimd of the mountains. The letter can plainly be seen for miles and stands without an equal as the largest college emblem in the world. It measures one hundred fifty feet in height and one hundred forty feet in breadth, each leg having a thickness of twenty feet. It covers about thirteen thousand square feet and is geometrically perfect in every detail. — H. McP. 130 i MACKAY DAY RIDAY, April 4th, 1913, was the first local holiday ever celebrated at U. of N. and the wherefore of the celebration was unique. Mr. Clarence H. Mackay has lono- been the good friend and benefactor of our College, but no one had ever before thought of giving our gratitude a public and tangible expression. Last year, however, someone had the brilliant inspiration to set aside a day called " Mackay Day, " and to devote it to the pursuit of happiness. When April 4th came, Old Sol saw fit to give us a dry warm day somewhat encumbered with wind. Early in the morning the boys clad in their old clothes worked on the track. They really labored and by noon the entire track had been raked and rolled into good condition for the coming Santa Clara meet. Thus a considerable item of Student Body expense was eliminated. In the meantime the girls had been cooking a colossal feed, and at noon everybody gathered around the long tables in the Gym. There were a few impromptu speeches and several songs by the Glee Clubs. At 3:00 o ' clock the scene of action was transferred to the Mackay Field. Until dark the Sophomores and the Seniors strove mightily to defeat a track team from the Freshmen and Juniors. The teams were uncommonly well matched, and after all their efforts the score stood noncommittal, sixty-one to sixty-one. In the evening an informal Jolly-up was held in the Gymnasium. Dress-up clothes were again tabooed, and the easy-going spirit of the day was continued far into the night. Dancing was a fitting and .joyful end for this, the best of good times. April 4th, 1914, has come and gone, and with it has passed the second celebration of Mackay Day. The program was essentially the same as last year, except the plan of the track meet. The plan of an interclass meet was carried out instead of a two-team meet. Under this scheme the Sophomore classes won the day. The second Mackay Day has come and gone, the celebration and its underlying motive has well been carried out. It remains for the future Nevada students to carry out the spirit of Mackay Day; to show the students ' appreciation of the great gifts of Clarence Mackay and his mother, and at the same time afford the student body an opportunity to show its enthusiasm and loyalty in a tangible and beneficial way. -N.

Light practices and lectures on the science of the game were features of the e arly season ' s work. The football spirit of the squad was excellent and except for a few hitches over the strict discipline all was serene until the arguments between the first and second teams started. Then the Nevada spirit showed. It was fight, fight, fight from 5:00 till 6:00 o ' clock every night. The competition for places on the team was keen but throughout the season the best sportsmanship within the squad and with other colleges was evidenced. This is not an unusual thing at Nevada, nor does it deserve special mention; yet it stands out prominent up°on the football field when some teams from the coast contest. The spirit of fair play, the discountenancing of fault-finding with officials has long been emphasized, and the doctrine is deely instilled. We were unable to arrange for a game with the Alumni this year, and consequently our first game was played with the Sacramento Athletic Club on September 27th. SACRAMENTO ATHLETIC CLUB— 3. NEVADA— 24. In this game we had a chance to discover the merits of our new football men and to " size up " the team. Considering the short practice the outlook for a winning team was very promising at this time. Although Sacramento scored first on a penalty kick, the game was all Nevada ' s from the start. It was really a preliminary game of the season in which the Sage- brush lads had a chance to get together and really see what they could do. UNIVERSITY OF PACIFIC— 0. NEVADA— 12. One the next Saturday, October 4th, we met and defeated the University of Pacific on the Maekay Athletic Field. Due to an extremely cold wind, the game was very slow and uninteresting from the spectator ' s point of view. Nevada had the wind to her back during the first half and should have piled up a big score. As it was, U. of N. only made three points and the visitors almost scored. The second half was better. The Nevada players used their heads better, kept the ball low on account of the wind, and had the U. P. team on the defensive during the rest of the game. Tries were made by the follow- ing men, but due to the high wind, none of them were converted: Jepson, Hamilton, Menardi and North. ST. MARYS— 8. NEVADA— 0. This game contrasted greatly with the one of the previous week. The day was a perfect one and the game was surely worthy of the day. Prom start to finish the game was full of clever plays, hard fighting and spectacular runs. The teams .1.38 were well matched, although the score does not show it.

Ihe Sagebrush lads showed up well m the scrum and took the ball more than half of the time In the second half we had the ball in U. C. territory nearly all the time. We held it on their ' one-vard line for ten .nmutes but ailed to make a try. In fact, Mills had the ball across the California line once, but the referee niled t the baU was pushed along the ground and gave a five-yard scrum. Menardi, the Nevada half-back, .ot the ball from th scrum an rossed the line again, but was forced back with the ball still in the air. One line out and two more scrums were tlen a at T ' T. ' ' ' ' t e coveted try for Nevada. Later in the game, both Trabert and McPhail made clever run which almost resulted m a score. They failed in each case because of lack of support California made three tries and converted two of them in the first half. In the second half, she made two tries and converted one, making the total score 21 to 0. ALL BLACKS— 55. NEVADA— 0. Nevada made a creditable showing against the experts from Australia. The superior weight and skill of the Blacks was offset to some extent m the first half at least, by the gameness of the Nevada pack. Nevada has been fav rably cri cM lor holding her opponents to a smaller score than Stanford did in their first game. criticizea I ' SJ There was no score for the first six minutes of play — a remarkable -showing against such players. Nevada held her own, fighting manfully, and indeed it looked for a time as if she might be able to score. But it could not be. Before long the heavier weight and superior ability of the visitors began to count. Then the scores began. The slippery New Zealander ' s eluded the Nevadans with ease and try after try was made until at the end of the first half they had scored 21 points. In the second half, after about two minutes of play, the All-Blacks had things all their own way. The final score was 55-0 in their favor. SANTA CLARA— 21. NEVADA— 3. The last game of the season and incidentally the combat with our chief rival — Santa Clara — occurred at Nevada on November 8th. We were certainly disappointed by the outcome of this game. We went into it firmly believing that the fruits of victory were ahead. However, on account of the heavier weight of our opponents and their phenomenal luck, Nevada was able to make but one try during the entire game. Nevada played circles about the Santa Clara boys at the beginning of he game. The first score was made by Harriman and Delahide of Nevada. The try was not converted. Encouraged by this success, the Nevada boys went back into the game fighting harder than ever, and with such good success that they began to gain again. Then Nevada fumbled, and Santa Clara gained. Wlien the ball was close to the Santa Clara goal, Nevada was penalized for an ofi ' side play, and Voight kicked the goal, thiLS evening up the score. Near the end of the half, Santa Clara made a fluke play which seemed to take the heart out of Nevada. With both teams struggling hard near the center of the field the ball rolled to Bert Hardy of Santa Clara. He dropped, left-footed, and it sailed squarely over the goal posts. Score, Nevada, 3 ; Santa Clara, 7. The gun was fired shortly after, and although the visitors made a stubborn fight for another try, they were unsuccessful. Santa Clara came back strong in the second half. Before long another try was made and several clever runs were brought to grief by the reliiable work of Captain Delahide. Santa Clara was penalized for an ofi ' side play and McCubbin made a drop kick for the goal. The ball went close — so close in fact that it was hard to believe that it had not gone over. The next try was made by Watson of Santa Clara. He fell on the ball after it rolled over the line. It was easy work for Fitzpatrick to make the next try. The ball was placed squarely beneath the goal and was converted. The score now stood 18 to 3 in favor of the visitors. The la st try of the game was made by Stewart. He crossed the line after making a neat run fully four minutes after the gun was fired and thus increased Santa Clara ' s points to 21. This game was the hardest fought game of the season. The following men played for Nevada that day : Settlemeyer, Hamilton, McDonald, North, Henningsen, Mills, Harri- man, Dessar, Menardi, Fake, McCubbin, Trabert, Delahide (captain), McPhail, Sheehy, Healy, Stickney, Crowley. — E.

But fortunately success isn ' t rated that way. The U. of N. basketball girls acquitted themselves well under the leadership of their captain, Ethel Brown, and they did their best under the existing- conditions. For the first time in years, the girls came out for practice during the first semester. Three weeks after college opened, basketball was in full swing. The ladies of the Facility donated a silver trophy to go to the class winning the cup for three successive years. The Juniors had a full team out, as did the Freshmen, and when the final game came between the two classes, there was an even chance of both classes for the victory. The Junior five, Ethel Brown, Francis Smith, Gertrude Shade, Lysle Rushby and Dorothy Bird, won it for the class of ' 15, and were honored by having the class numerals engraved on the cup. The Juniors can never claim the trophy as their own, l)ut the Freshmen have an opportunity to do so if they prove them- selves the winners next year. The girls worked hard. They worked conscientiously, but when they went down to Stanford, they met a heavier team and a quicker one. The score Avas 23-13 in favor of the scarlet and white; but the spirit that the Stanford girls took their victory in and the entertainment which they accorded us girls, entirely obliterated the sting of defeat except to remind us that we must strive to do better next year. Soon after the sorry return from Stanford, the girls entertained the Faculty women at a combination card and sewing party in the Gym. The afternoon served to bring the women students and the Faculty women closer together. Then came the big game with California. It took place in the Gym on March 14th. We have loads of excuses to offer for our second defeat, but we can ' t deny the superb teamwork of the California women. The score was 27-7. The score stood 6-6 at the end of the first half, but in the second Claifornia played better and we played worse. A dance followed which the boys were allowed to attend (there was no masculine element at the game) and our spirits revived. The Freshmen brought forth fine material this year, and next year the team should be a fine one. The Freshman girls are now planning to raise money for the purchasing of their " N " pins. At the last meeting of the team, Lelia White was elected captain of next year ' s team. Lelia is one of our " star " players, and we ' re sure of having a splendid team with her as captain. 144 . MEN ' S BASKETBALL Nevada has made an enviable record this year in basket ball by the work of her victorious team. The term " victorious " is used advisedly, for had she not been forced to play such a hard schedule in the Intercollegiate Series, her showing would have been even better than the present record. Five intercollegiate contests in six days is an almost prohibitive handicap, and to gain three victories on the trip is a just basis for an enthiisiastic prophecy of the score had an easier schedule been arranged. The University was particularly fortunate in beginning practice with a squad consisting almost entirely of men who had had previous basket ball training, either preparatory or college, so the main work of Coach Ross consisted in developing speed and team work in his men. The first contest was that of STOCKTON MERCURIES VS. U. OF N. The game was played on January 17th in the University Gym. In a few minutes of play it was plainly seen that superior passing and skill in handling the ball would bring the game to Nevada. The result w ' as never in doubt. The final score stood Mercuries, 30 ; Nevada, 44. Y. M. C. A. VS. U. OP N. During the following week U. of N. opposed the local Y. M. C. A. twice, once on the Varsity court and once on the Y. M. C. A. court. Victory seemed to favor the home court in each case, though the size of the Y. M. C. A. court doubtless was an inducement for the " old bird " to camp there for an evening. U. of N. won the first game by the score of 53-28, and lost the second by the score of 47-28. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA FARM VS. U. OF N. On January 31 Nevada played the California Farmers on the Nevada court. Our veterans lost no time in hitting their stride and an easy victory was the result. Throughout the game the play was exceedingly fast and some of the best teamwork ever seen in the Gym was exhibited. The first tally read University of California Farm, 25; Nevada, 41. UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA VS. U. OF N. Nevada has always taken particular delight in opposing Caliifornia, for the showing of her representatives has always been creditable against those of the larger university, hence a victory over California is a double victory for Nevada. On February 14 the largest crowd to attend a varsity basket ball game was present in the Gym. The game started with a rush. 146 It was zip-zing-swish— two points for Nevada. The Californias fought gamely, but the pace was too swift for them. They seemed unable to get their teamwork started, while our boys at all times displayed the co-ordination and precision of a delicate machine. The pace told on the Calif ornians for they had to use all their substitutes while Nevada only replaced one man. The referee announced the final score as University of Nevada, 33 ; University of California, 14. Nevada had triumphed again. INTERCOLLEGIATE SERIES On February 17 the team left for the coast. The college felt that the work of the team had already justified its confi- dence, so when the train started it took not only Nevada ' s team but Nevada ' s heart, confidence, and pride as well. The games of the Intercollegiate series were covered by delegate representatives of the Artemisia. U. OF P. VS. U. OF N. The game game between U. of N. and the University of Pacific was held in the gym at San Jose, where an enthusiastic audience of ' students had gathered to witness the contest. The game was called a few minutes after 8 o ' clock by the referee, Rev. P. O. Bell. U. of P. made the first goal followed by a deafening applause. Nevada immediately retaliated in the next play, when Sheehy dropped a long one into the basket from near the side lines. The game was now on in earnest. Nevada ' s score climbed steadily, due to the fast and accurate team work on the part of the forwards. McCubbin ' s wonderful passing and long-distance shots brought sorrow to the hearts of U. P. time after time. The U. P. forwards were closely covered by the Nevada guards, giving them very few chances to even take a shot at the basket. The score at the end of the first half stood 22-10 in favor of Nevada. In the beginning of the second half U. P. came in strong, playing good fast ball for about five minutes, but it seemed merely a spurt, for Nevada again took the game into her own hand and played it according to her own ideas. Without boast- ing, the Nevada team could have won by a much larger score if they had played their usual game. They were greatly handicapped on account of it being the first game off of their own court. The Nevada men seemed to have much better condi- tion than their opponents, who took time out at every opportunity. The Nevada guards deserve great credit for their great covering, and Henningsen at center for getting the ball fully two-thirds of the time. SANTA CLARA VS. U. OF N. In one of the fastest contests ever seen on the Santa Clara court, Nevada vanquished her rivals by the close score of 34-32. The first half was started with a rush by the Red and White five, and in a few minutes they had a lead of five points over Nevada. Towards the end of the half, however, the Nevada forwards found the basket a little oftener and the half ended 19-18 in Santa Clara ' s favor. As in the first half, the Santa Clara quintet started the second half with an awful pace, and soon had 147 run up nine points to their opponents none, making the score 28-18. It looked bad for Nevada at this stage of the game. About this time Trabert took Painter ' s place. Things started now in earnest. Every man on the Nevada team fought his heart out and a couple of long shots by McCubbin pulled Nevaaa up on even terms with her rivals. The game at this stage was exceedingly rough. Baskets by Henningsen and Sheehy gave Nevada a four-point lead, which, however, was short- lived as Santa Clara shot a couple of fouls and a field goal a moment afterward. Then came the real fight in the last five minutes of play. The Santa Clara rooters were on their feet yelling for their men to make a goal, but they could not. Jepson and Trabert were glued to their men and they had not a chance in the world to get another goal. Then McCubbin shot an- other one, giving Nevada a two-point lead and a minute and a half to play. Needless to say that minute and a half seemed like an hour and a half, but when the whistle sounded Nevada was still fighting and when the score was announced they gave all the " pep " they had left in them to a Nevada spell yell. Score, U. of N., 34; Santa Clara, 32. STANFORD VS. U. OF N. In one of the most bitterly fought contests which ever took place in the Stanford gym, the Stanford five managed to nose out Nevada by a score of 25-24. " When the game opened it looked like a walk-away for Stanford, not because they were outplaying Nevada, but because the Nevada men could not hit the basket. In the matter of teamwork Nevada played rings around her opponents at time. The first half ended 17-5 in favor of Stanford. The Nevada men, after having a little heart- to-heart talk with Si, came back stronger than ever. Trabert and Painter were playing their men to a standstill, and Sheehy, McCubbin and Henningsen were finding the basket much more regularly. Both McCubbin and Sheehy dropped two each in the basket from the center of the floor in this half. This seemed to take all the " pep " out of the Stanford men, who were tiring under the strain. The Nevada team had hit their stride too late, however, and when time was called Stanford led by one point. Score, Stanford, 25; U. of N., 24. ST. MARY ' S VS. U. OF N. Monday night at 8 :30 a great crowd gathered in the St. Mary ' s gym to witness what was expected to be the best game of the Intercollegiate Series. Nevada, still smarting from the one-point defeat at the hands of Stanford on the previous Satur- day, was confident of retrieving her lost laurels, but she could not put up her usual brand of ball. The hard schedule was showing its efi: ' ects and every man on the team seemed dead on his feet. St. Mary ' s led from the start, and playing a fast game, wound up the first half 17 to 5. The second half was repetition of the first, though the Nevada team took heart and scored twenty points to their oppon- ents ' 24. Final score, St. Mary ' s, 41; Nevada, ,25. Without making any excuses, if the St. Mary ' s game had been our first, the result would have been very much in doubt 148 as the teams were very evenly matched. Nevada conld win on her own court. In this game Nevada used all of her sub- stitutes. , ST. IGNATIUS VS. U. OF N. Tuesday night on the Rice Institute court in San Frac ciseo, Nevada with a worn out team, won an easy victory from St. Ig-natius college. The game was the easiest of the tournament and at no time did the St. Ignatius team threaten our boys. The score at the end of the first half was 17-7. Final score, Nevada, 44; St. Ignatius, 14. When the percentages were tallied by the officials of the Intercollegiate League, Nevada was found to be tied with Stanford for second place. Additional honors were brought to the Blue and White when the All-Coast team was selected. Nevada ' s forwards, Sheehy and McCubbin, were chosen for berths on the first team, and Henningsen center on the second team. The team will lose none of its m-embers by graduation so here ' s to an easier schedule and even greater success next year.

They trained faithfully and if success was measured by determination and perseverance the bo.vs deserved to win. The game was played on Maekay Field on April -ith. For Nevada, Ferris pitched a good game. Coach Elliott, to find Johnson ' s qualifications for a next year ' s twirler, put the latter in the box in the ninth. Johnson made good, striking out two of the three men up and finishing the inning with a perfect score. Santa Clara found Nevada easy, but game, and the boys of the Red and White lived up to the enviable reputation they have gained on the Coast. Many extra base hits were made. Harwood and Casey, for Santa Clara, and Ferris and Abbott, for Nevada, proved the best men at the bat. The final score stood 12 to 1 in Santa Clara ' s favor. Nevada lined up as follows: Boggs, first base; Abbott, third base; Moore, second base; Sheehy, shortstop; Bacon, center field; Malone, left field; Reilly, right field; Ferris, pitcher; McCubbin, catcher; Johnson, pitcher; Fake, right field. — T. R. vj v " 152 ■BSi TRACK 1913 Encouraoed bv the results of the track activities of the previous year, Nevada took up track work in the spring of 1913 with renewed vlo:or. Practice began on February 3 under the capable leadership of Captain Robert Bring-ham and Coach " " " The Mackay Day of 1913 accomplished its purpose. An eager crowd of students went to work on our athletic field that mornino. and by " noon they had the track, 220-yard straight-away, and the jumping pits in first class condition for the mter- class meet that afternoon. The result of this meet was a tie between the Senior-Sophomore and Junior-Freshman teams each side scoring sixt.y-one points. „„„iu. However, the score did not matter. The fact that the track squad was augmented and encouraged was what realh counted Active practice began in earnest and continued throughout the season with an average of thirty men out for Practice each day. We arranged for only one meet during the season. This event between Santa Clara and Nevada was held on the Mackay Athletic field April 26th, 1913. . . This was a spirited contest from start to finish. Nevada had a good team but many of its members were inexperienced and were therefore outgeneraled by the Santa Clara boys. , , -.o i The two-mile ra e was especially exciting. Reynolds easily placed first, and broke his previous record by 13 seconds. The fight for second place was hotly contested between Kent of Nevada and McCarthy of Santa Clara Kent proved to be a fighter to the last and beat his opponent in by a neck. Ogilvie won the mile in as pretty a run as his L. of N. supporters would care to see. In fact, Nevada had reason to be proud of her distance men that day, for they won all of the events from the half-mile to the two-mile race inclusive. Bringham ' s fight for first place in the quarter-mile will long be remembered. Due to a poor start and a pardonable, although fatal error in judgment, he lost the race to Momson. Haskamp was the one individual star for the visitors. He took first place in four events, thereby winning nearly one- third of the points made by the Santa Clara team. The score tells the rest of the story: RESULTS no-yards— Haskamp (S. C), first; Best (S. C), second; Powers (N), third. Time— 10 seconds. One ' mile— Ogilvie (N.), first; Hovey N.), second; Benneson (S. C), third. Time— 4 minutes, d4 seconds. 154 120-.yard high hurdles— Haskamp (S. C), first; Rose (N.), Fitzpatrick, tie for second.

As a result of the meet the following men won their letter and became eligible for membership in the Block N Society: Reynolds, Kent, Hovey, Hylton, Powers, Hancock, Rose, High, Ogilvie, Patterson. E. W. k W 155 TRACK 1914 Nevada began track work this year with one idea in mind, to beat Santa Clara. Active training was begun under the leadership of Captain Hjdton. The team, however, soon lost his services through an attack of typhoid fever which kept the popular runner in the hospital for three weeks. Under Coach Ross, the men trained faithfully, and some credit for Nevada ' s victory is due to the coach who gave much of his time to conditioning the men and advising them as to their work. The meet with Santa Clara was held on the Mackay Athletic field, April 25th. The day was fine and a large crowd of townspeople traveled to the hill to see the big contest. The arrangements for the meet had been well planned and the events were run off practically without any delay. Dr. Haseman was referee, and at his decisions no one was heard to murmur, even though there were a few protests carried to him for adjustment. The mile was the first event. Three men started, and the order in which they passed the bleachers at the end of the first lap presaged the end of the race. Ogilvie (N.), first; Trabert (N.), second; McCarthy (S. C), third. Time— 5 lOi. The century dash was a surprise to Nevadans, for it brought out a new Nevada track star, Root. From a field of six he spurted like lightning and breasted the tape but a fraction of a second behind Hardy, the Santa Clara crack. Hardy (S. C), first; Root (N.), second; Mills (N.), third. Time— 10 2-5 seconds. The high hurdles netted Nevada four points and Santa Clara five. Fitzgerald (S. C), was first over the bars; Rose (N.), second; North (N.), third. Time — 16 2-5 seconds. The quarter-mile has been run ma ny times since the day of the meet, for whenever track is discussed someone is sure to give his opinion of the race that day. Suffice to say, there was crowding for the turn, in the crowding Hovey was spiked, probably without intent, and forced out of the race. Mills, getting away from a very poor start, ran a gruelling race and captured second. Healy beat his man for third. Time — 54 2-5 seconds. In the low hurdles Hardy of Santa Clara registered first again, Hancock and Rose of Nevada taking second and third respectively. Time — 26 1-5 seconds. The two-mile event was conceded to Nevada before the race, so the formality of running the race was gone through. Kent (N.) finished yards to the good over McCarthy of Santa Clara; Farrar (N.), finished his race, taking third. Tirae-- 11 minutes, 2 seconds. The two-twenty was another pleasant surprise to Blue and White. Root (N.), first; Hardy (S. C), second; Powers :N.), third. Time— 23 3-5 seconds. 156 Hovey (N.) romped away with the half-mile, and his mates. Chism and Trabert, registered second and third for Nevada. Time — 20 minutes, 7 seconds. Healy started the relay for Nevada, and beating his man to the pole, increased his lead in the back stretch, " ivinj Mills at his touch-off a lead of several yeards ove;. ' the second Santa Clara runner. Hovey and Ogilvie finished the stDr-v. Time — 3 minutes, 34 seconds. Clark of Nevada brought in five points with a vault of 10 feet 6 inches. Donohue (S. C), McCubbin (N.), and Bacon (N.), tied for second. Distance — 10 feet, 6 inches. Kiely, the Santa Clara giant, heaved the lead 39 feet 6 inches for the Red and White, taking first by several feet. Lane of Santa Clara, second, and Harriman (N.), third. Kiely took first again for his college in the hammer throw with a cast of 112 feet 6 inches. Jepson and Pflaging (N), second and third respectively. Inthe high leap, Leonard of Santa Clara took first; Watson and Luce of Nevada tied with Hardy of Santa Clara for second. Height — 5 feet 6 inches. In the broad jump Root, the star Nevada man this day, captured first ; Soto of Santa Clara, second ; Hardy of Santa Clara, third. Distance — 21 feet 7 inches. It was still early in the afternoon when the announcer called the final score: " Nevada, 70 2-3; Santa Clara, 51 1-3. " The second intercollegiate meet was history. By their performance that day, Root, Ogilvie, Hovey, Mills and Kent were chosen to represent Nevada at the Conference Meet at Berkeley May 2d. Ogilvie, track captain elect, brought honor to Nevada and credit to himself by taking second in an exceedingly fast mile. 357 ' (1- ' .1 . . . - , . ■■» Ssfi. fi- ' Kf HP. U. OF N.

The fact that you are not fat should not hinder you from winning a wife. (See our hints to broken hearts column.) You have written .just in time. You have not a moment to lose, my dear Miss Hussman ; your case is critical. Follow these instructions carefully and there is hope for you. Daily plunges, long walks by moonlight, less potatoes and beans, silent meditation and your supertiuity of cor- pulency will disappear. Miss White, I regret to inform you that death alone can cure you of your affliction. Sticking plaster and tight bandages over the offending member, however, will prevent you from annoying other people. We make no pretences at trying to insert new vocal organs or cultivating old ' nes. Messrs. Trabert and Hobbins, you will find that white- wash will as effectively as anything, when applied abun- dantly, hide your mutual disfigurement. Freckles are sent by a higher power and this agency can only help you to disguise yourself so that you can appear presentable to yourself. As long as a few spears of hair remain on your pate there is hope for you Mr. Stickney. Use good glue to keep the remaining ones with you, and if you have a feminine friend have her massage your head nightly under the electric light with the following preparation : Salty tears, two sniffs mixed with sobs. This shovdd be rubbed in while wet.

If it has shown you that here at the smallest University on the Coast and on the finest athletic field in the West is the best place for you to work and play, this book has not been in vain. If it has shown you in part the serious, as well as the lighter side of University life, the Artemisia staff has been rewarded. The success of this book, if you term it a success, is not due to the efforts of the staff members alone, but rather to those friends of the Universit.y who realized the benefits of a book of this character. The kindness of those invaluable friends of the University is firatefully acknowledged, and with this acknowledgment the r ecord of 1915, as written by the Artemisia is complete.

COLLEGE will be one of the most important factors in the fnture development of the. agricultural interests of Nevada. This is readily conceivable when one stops to think of the six million acres of land that may be placed under cultivation and supplied with sufficient water for profitable farming. In the past few years many large stock ranches have been subdivided and are now being operated under systems of diversifled farming. Also several large irrigation j)ro.iects are in the course of establishment all of which means the introduction of thousands of new settlers from various sections of the country. It is quite evident that the maiority of ne-w- eomers will know little about the most profitable methods of farm practice in Nevada, and to be most successful they must receive authora tive information in connection with their important problems. No source can so accurately supply them with the necessary information as the Agricultural College, through its various departments or through its graduates. The majority of students who have attended the Agricultural College have had more or less experience in actual farm practice in some branch of agriculture. After receiving four years of scientific training and applying the same to their practical experience the graduates are well equipped to enter the field of agriculture on their own behalf or instruct others in the most profitable methods of farming Students graduating from the College of Agriculture are given instruction in many subjects, some of which do not treat ' on agriculture directly, but which bear a close relation to the same. In the Department of Agronomy instruction is given on the soil,— its formation, texture, requirements, moisture and tillage- the plant- its relation to soil and climate, its propogation, growth and cultivation; farm crops, including cereals, forage crops, grasses and legumes- labor- atory work on all classes of farm seeds and obnoxious weed seeds: irrigation— the application of water to the staple crops under various soil conditions. Farm management, including the evolution of farming, relation of capital and labor to farming; equipment; ownership versus rental of lands; choice of farm; problems; advertising; system of farming; the keeping of farm records and farm accouunts; laving out of fields- planning rotations; management of the soil to maintain soil fertility. " ' In Horticulture the students are instructed on the location, cultural methods and most modern methods of handling an orchard- on the important phases of floriculture, vegetable gardening, landscape gardening and plant breeding. ' The courses in Animal Husbandry include the origin, history, an judging, feeding, marketing, exhibiting and general care of the same, has gained a reputation as representing exceptional quality among the v The Department of Veterinary Science and Bacteriology gives in ries, infectious diseases and farm sanitation.
