The Central Pacific Railway Company donated 21.15 acres of land and the people of the town of Elko erected a brick building at a cost of $18,000. October 12, 1874, a preparatory department was opened with David R. Sessions as principal. The attendance was seven, and the next year sixteen began their work in the institution. In 1878 Mr. Sessions was succeeded by William C. Dovey as principal. In 1881 Mr. T. N. Stone became the head of the school, and in 1883 he was followed by E. S. Farrington, now United States District Judge of Nevada. Then A. T. Stearns, a veteran educator of Nevada, was placed in charge of the institution just before it was moved to Reno. October 4, 1882, Mr. Jules E. Gignoux, a graduate of the University of Freiburg, started the first class in mining and assaying. In 1885 a law was passed moving the institution to Reno, provided Washoe county would pay Elko $20,000 and donate to the Board of Regents $5000 to be used in putting up a suitable building, and this sum with the $10,000 appropriated by the Legislature was the working fund of the board. They bought from J. N. Evans a tract of land for $1250, with the privilege of buying another ten acres for a like sum. A contract was let to the Burke Brothers, for the main building, now known as Morrill Hall, at a price of $12,700. The building was finished February 11, 1886. Prof. J. W. McCammon was engaged as principal and Mr. A. H. Willis of Virginia City was placed in charge of the mining and assaying. Only one floor of the building was in use and it was poorly equipped. 19 £EaEIElEMI££ A plan of reorganization was adopted by the Regents, the board con- sisting of Governor C. C. Stevenson, John M. Dormer, Secretary of State and William C. Dovey, Superintendent of Public Instruction. Leroy D. Brown, School Commissioner of Ohio, was engaged as Presi- dent of the University in 1887, and a faculty consisting of Hannah K Clapp, a veteran teacher of Nevada; Walter M. Miller, as professor of Natural Science; Robert D. Jackson, a graduate of the University of Cali- fornia, as professor of Mechanic Arts and Mining; Kate N. T. Tupper as principal of the Normal School; First Lieutenant Arthur C. Ducat Jr U. S. A., as Commandant of Cadets, and William B. Daugherty as In- structor in Accounting, was appointed. The attendance the first year was fair, and showed seventy-five students. Among the well-known names in the list we note: Henry C. Cutting and Nott Leete, who were studying mining; Miss— on second thought we will not name any of the young ladies who were here then. However, we will name George F. Brodigan, present Secretary of State, who was helping Samuel W. Mozingo study business In the School of Liberal Arts Judge Frank H. Norcross was absorbing Latin for future Suprement Court decisions. The Old Experiment Station 20 rMIxSlA . m In 1889 two buildings, the old Experiment Station, which has since been destroyed by fire, and Stewart Hall were commenced. Two new members of the Faculty were appointed, Professor J. Warne Phillips in Chemistry, and Professor Fred H. Hillman in Botany and Entomology. President Brown ' s energies were directed to the organization of the best institution the circumstances permitted, and his work shows clean-cut progress. It is true that the course outlined in the School of Liberal Arts looks somewhat out of joint according to present standards, but it was a good course for its day. January 6, 1890, Stephen A. Jones, M. A., Ph. D., became President of the University and devoted four years of painstaking labor to the upbuild- ing of the institution. During his incumbency the University came into its own in the shape of the Agricultural and Mechanical fund given by the Federal government " To be devoted to the maintenance of at least one col- lege where the leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts in order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- sions of life. This fund commenced with $15,000 a year and increased a thousand dollars a year until it amounted to $25,000 annu- ally. It was afterwards increased to $50,000 a year. President Stephen Alfred Jones was born in China, Maine, March 21, 1848, and was a graduate of Dartmouth, re- ceiving his A. B. in 1872 and his A. M. in 1875. During his incumbency he pursued a steady policy of putting the existing plans in working order. His policy was successful in establishing the University on a firm basis so that future develop- ment was possible. After leaving the University in 1894, he went to San Jose and for a number of years did some teaching in pedagogical lines in the San Stephen A. Jones 21 iteffi MiaiA Jose Normal School, but devoted the major portion of his time to business. He died in 1915 in San Jose. In 1890 the first dormitory for the use of students was established and the enrollment reached a total of 143, divided among the schools of Liberal Arts, Mines, Agriculture, Normal and Preparatory. The largest class was enrolled in physical geography and failures were so numerous in that branch that it was popularly known as the " Physical Impossibility ' " class. Professor Jackson was working hard to get the mining department on a definite and practical working basis, but had to do most of the work in the basement of Morrill Hall. Steps were soon taken to put up a •: : ;! ,- i Stewart Hall Hatch Station Morrill Hall modest mining building, and the present Experiment Station was built and furnished at a cost of $12,000. A training school was established for the education of teachers and was kept up for a number of years until the school board of Reno made it possible to do this work in the public schools. Lieutenant A. C. Ducat was succeeded by Captain John M. Neall of the Fourth U. S. Cavalry, who was a splendid disciplinarian. He established a firm basis for the military work and his four-year detail is a pleasant- recollection to the old-time students. In 1891 Prof. T. W. Cowgill was made Professor of English and his strong personality made its impression on all those who came under his influence. He was a graduate of Harvard and was in charge of the depart- ment until failing health made it impossible for him to stay in the class room. Prof. Nathaniel E. Wilson, a graduate of the University of Maine, was placed in charge of the chemical work in the Experiment Station and was 22 later in charge of all the work in chemistry. His long and faithful service in the department is remembered by a host of friends who benefitted by experience, and who learned to know their chemistry in an eminently practical way. The same year saw kindly Dick Brown appear on the campus to begin his work in the mechanical department, and to take charge General View from the Northwest of the varying fortunes of the host of young men who passed through Lincoln Hall in its pioneer days. In October, 1891, Professor Henry Thurtell took charge of the department of mathematics and mechanical drawing and continued this work until he was appointed State Engineer many years later. In June, 1891, the first class was graduated from the University and the three receiving the A. B. degree were Fred A. Bristol, Frank H. Norcross and Henry C. Cuting. Fred Bristol was for many years a very successful mining engineer in South Africa and died in Cali- fornia a few years ago. Judge Norcross went into the legal profession and after serving as District Attorney of Washoe county, was elected to the Lincoln Hall and Chemistry Building 23 ■Mt% m%M:mi: : Supreme Court, and six years later the people of Nevada encored him. Henry C. Cutting went to Tonopah in the early days and accumulated enough to become a large land-owner in Richmond, California. The next year Albert M. Lewers completed the mining school work and became the pioneer graduate of that school. He is now in charge of the chemical division of the Patent Office in Washington. The first graduates of the School of Agriculture were William E. Barney and Fred Stadtmuller, one of them followed mining, while the other looks after the rural credits in a local bank. In the years that followed, the graduates of this school be- came mining men, army officers, or followed trades. When John Chism walked right out of the graduating class and became a successful farmer, the department picked up hope and has had no reason to complain since. The year 1894 witnessed a change in the policy of the University as the time had arrived for expansion. Recognizing this, the Regents sought the service of the best talent they could find in this country, and appointed Joseph Edward Stubbs of Berea, Ohio, president. Dr. Stubbs was born at Ashland, Ohio, March 19, 1850. He received his B. A. from the Ohio Wesleyan College in 1873, and his M. A. in 1876. He was a graduate of Drew Theological Seminary, 1875, and received the D. D. degree from the Ger- man Wallace University in 1890. He was a student in the University of Berlin in 1890-91. He was president of the Bald- win University at Berea, Ohio, from 1886 to 1894, and while there placed that in- stitution on a firm financial basis. He was president of the Ohio Association of Colleges in 1891, and in 1899 served as president of the American Association of Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations. During his twenty-year service as president of the University of Nevada, Dr. Stubbs devoted his every energy to the upbuilding of the institution, and from personal knowledge of the facts the writer can say that he did not spare his own purse in the same service. He found Dr. Joseph E. Stubbs 24 MMIA the institution on the eve of getting Federal aid and the State beginning to see the necessity of the larger training for its students. During the administration of President Stubbs, twelve buildings were erected on the University grounds, the crowning one being the magnificent Mackay School of Mines, acquired through the generosity of Mrs. John W. Mackay, and her son, Clarence Mackay. This endownment was given in honor of the late John W. Mackay of Virginia City, and his statue in front of the building shows him looking toward his old Comstock home. To the Mackays Nevada is indebted for the Mackay School of Mines building, the fine Athletic building on the Athletic field, the fine campus lawn and the Athletic field itself, the grandstand, and the museum, and for the upkeep of the school an endowment of $150,000. The total benefactions amount to over $300,000. During the early part of Dr. Stubbs ' administration he devoted him- self to providing dormitories for the accommodation of the students from a distance, and Lincoln Hall and Manzanita Hall are the results of this move. The establishment of these and of the dining hall have kept the liv- ing cost down for students and, as the average Nevada student is either making his own way or is drawing upon people who have to work hard for a living, the foresight of Dr. Stubbs and the acts of those in authority who made possible the accomplishment of this purpose, are returning dividends every year to every student living in these halls. Manzanita and Lincoln Halls were built in 1895 and the gymnasium was started the same year by donations from students and faculty, and the public. When it was nearly completed the State appropriated enough money to finish it in good shape. The Chemical building and the Hospital were built in 1897 and 1907, and the Electrical and Mechanical buildings were added later. In 1914 a dairy building and equipment were provided, as well as a small Library building. In 1906 Congress increased the fund for investigation of agricultural problems by an additional $15,000 a year and this fund is known as the Adams fund. It is used strictly for investigation and is used in conjunc- tion with the Hatch fund. In 1907 Congress increased the Morrill fund from $25,000 a year to $50,000 and the additional fund is known as the Nelson fund. Part of this is to be devoted to preparing teachers for agri- cultural subjects. In 1913 President Stubbs went to Europe to study at Oxford, and 25 H later in the year he was appointed a member of the commission to investi- gate rural credits and agricultural problems in Europe and traveled over that continent with the Congressional commission. President Stubbs was suddenly striken and passed away on May 27, 1914. He died literally in the harness and his whole soul was wrapped up in the success of the institution he loved so well. With his administra- tion ended the building of the University as an institution solely for the Manzanita Hall under-graduate and the resident student. The policies of institutions change and the time had arrived for extending the work out into the vastly greater field among the people of the State. The passage of the Smith-Lever act by Congress appropriating $10,000 for agricultural extension work in the field and not in the uni- versity class rooms, made it possible at last to meet the everyday problems that vex the citizen. The Board of Regents, consisting of Dr. H. E. Reid, president ; Asha- ton A. Codd, James W. O ' Brien, Charles B. Henderson and Walter E. Pratt, sought for a successor to Dr. Stubbs who had not only the educational 26 mMmmnr stt- m training, but also the business qualifications for the larger work entailed on the university, and on September 14, 1914, appointed Archer W. Hen- drick of Portland, Oregon, president of the university. President Hendrick was born in Frankford, Ontario, June 26, 1871 ; was prepared for college at the Owen Collegiate Institute and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1897, finishing the work in three years. He was the winner of the Alexander MacKenzie scholarship in history and political science, and an honor man in language and mathematics. He pur- sued graduate work in Queens ' College, and is a graduate of the Ontario Normal College. In 1902 he became the head of the English department in Whitman College, Washington, and served as Dean of the Faculty and Secretary of the Board of Overseers. During his service at Whitman Col- lege he was instrumental in raising the major portion of $500,000 endow- ment fund for that institution. His skill as a business manager and as a progressive educator is evidenced by the strong indorsement of scores of the most prominent empire builders of the Northwest. The University is on a strong basis and is doing good work, and the intimate relationship it must bear through the Smith-Lever extension work to every community in the State is going to make it, not a distant institution set on a high and cold pedestal of classic myths and highbrow culture, but one with human sympathies that every man with red blood in his veins can welcome to his fireside, and feel that it is bringing efficiency to the service of the people. 27 1 ARCHER WILMOT HENDRICK President of the University A.

Of greatest importance has been the creation of a new office in the University, that of Dean of Women. The forming of this office was brought about by the increasing activity of women in college affairs. With the importance of the duties of a dean of women in view, the officers of the University have selected to fill this position, Miss Louise Fargo Brown. Miss Brown took her A. B. degree at Cornell University in 1903, and in 1909 she received her Ph. D. degree at the same institution. She has been in- structor in history in Wellsley and Vassar colleges, and is highly recommended by the leading educators from these colleges and Cornell University. Another important appointment is that of Dr. George Francis James to the chair of Dean of Education. Dr. James comes from the University of Minnesota where he has been Dean of the College of Education for the past ten years. In the Department of Romance Languages, Mr. Charles Goggio has been selected as assistant. Mr. Goggio is a graduate of Harvard. In Miss Zilla Mills, a graduate of Cornell, the Department of Home Econo- mics has received an able assistant. Besides Dr. James, the Education Department has had its Faculty staff increased by two new members, James Reed Young of Stanford and Fred W. Traner of Beloit University. Louise F. Brown 35 Ai Ei ife i In the extension work there has been several changes, among which was the appointment of C. A. Norcross as Director of Agricultural Exten- sion and the selection of Dr. R. H. Mullen to succeed Dr. M. F. Boyd as Director of the State Hygienic Laboratory. Prospectors ' Short Course THE first Prospectors ' Short Course at the Mackay School of Mines was held in February, 1915, and met with such success that it was repeated in February, 1916. The object of this course is to aid the prospectors of Nevada by teach- ing them such subjects as will be of use to them in their work. In this manner they become better prospectors, and thus of greater value to themselves and to the State. The work taken up in the prospectors course consists of lectures and laboratory exercises upon the following subjects : Prospecting, assaying, mineralogy, geology, chemistry, hygiene, sanitation, first aid to the injured, and mining law. In addition to the regular work in these courses a number of special lectures are given. In the short space of one month it is, of course, impossible to cover all the subjects listed fully, but an attempt is made to acquaint the members of the class with as many practical points connected with these subjects as possible, and whenever questions are asked, the regular course of the work is stopped until these questions have been fully answered. In this manner the prospectors have an opportunity to discuss the problems they have met in their past work which puzzled them and to have these difficulties solved. An examination of the registration figures in the Prospectors ' Short Course show certain interesting facts. Thus, it will be noted that the course reaches those for whom it was designed since the greater proportion of the men attending these courses have been prospectors and mining men. although there has been a considerable scattering of men from other fields. Also it will be observed that the course is more than locally popular for barely one-half of those registered come from Reno, most of the remainder coming from other Nevada towns, and a few even coming from other states. The prospectors have expressed themselves as greatly pleased with the work given them and at the conclusion of both seasons have presented resolutions stating their appreciation of it. This appreciation is further shown by the fact that two of the men who attended the first course re- 36 turned for the second season, although the ground covered was practically the same in both cases, and a number of the members of this season ' s course are expecting to return next year. Agricultural Experiment Station " •HE Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station was founded in 1887 by action of the Federal government. It is sup- ported almost wholly by the Adams and the Hatch funds which amount to $30,000 annually. The station was founded for the purpose of investigating problems which come up in the farming industry of the State. A farmer cannot spend his time in experimenting. He must use methods which he knows to be good. When disease breaks out among sheep, cattle, or other domestic animals, the stockman needs expert assist- ance in its control. When insect-pests appear in the fields and ravage crops it is necessary to know the whole life history of the insect. When range forage grows more scanty every year there is need of expert study of means to restore the ranges to their original carrying capacity. All these needs and problems suggest lines of experimental work and investigation. The Experiment Stations were founded for the purpose of studying these problems of agriculture in the various States. Nevada has many peculiar problems. For years the Nevada Station has been studying along the lines spoken of in the last few paragraphs. We have projects for the study of the use of water in irrigation on the farm, with studies of the best strains of wheat, oats, and barley, studies of new alfalfas, and studies of the stages of growth in which plants are most in need of water. Under Dean C. S. Knight, ably assistetd by J. B. Menardi, all these lines of work are making solid progress. Then, in the great mountain basin at the head of the Truckee River the Station has in progress a most difficult series of investigations of snow — the source of irrigation water in the late summer. At Lake Tahoe, and on the Summit of Mount Rose the Station has observatories where this dif- ficult and dangerous work is carried on under conditions which make it heroic. These projects were founded by Dr. J. E. Church, and have been carried on for years by Dr. Church and Prof. S. P. Ferguson. In bacteriology and veterinary science, the Nevada Station is carrying on some most interesting and important studies of diseases which destroy 37 livestock. Dr. W. B. Mack founded this line of work in the University and carried it steadily forward alone for years until the growing importance of his work became recognized by President Hendrick and the Board of Control of the Station, who have since given the work all possible support and encouragement. The Station has studied for years the chemistry of alfalfa and of pois- onous plants. This is intensely difficult work of a highly technical char- acter, demanding all the refinments of modern chemistry. It is all the more difficult because its importance is so little understood by the public. Still, the work is making sure and conservative progress under Dr. C. A. Jacobson. The newest line of work undertaken in the Station is the study of range plants. For some years it has been evident that the carrying capac- ity of the ranges was decreasing, even the famous old white sage which has meant so much to stockmen was growing scarcer. So the Station has under- taken to study the range plants of the State, and to experiment with methods of management of stock on the range which will let the grass and weeds be used without destroying them. This new and promising field of work is in the hands of Mr. C. E. Fleming. Mr. Fleming came to Nevada from the Forest Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. For years he has been in charge of the great Jornada Grazing Reserve of 250,000 acres in New Mexico. Mr. Fleming is a graduate of the sheep range and the cow camp, later of the Agricultural College of Utah at Logan, and later still of Cornell University. President Hendrick, the Board of Regents and the Director of the Station are united in an effort to make the work of the Station a vital force in the development of Nevada agriculture. Agricultural Extension AGRICULTURAL Extension in Nevada is carried on by co- operation between the College of Agriculture and the U. S. Department of Agriculture, under the provisions of the Smith-Lever Act of Congress. The work is in charge of a director, with state leaders in charge of the various depart- ments, and with specialists of the College of Agriculture subject to assignment for extension work from time to time. When fully in operation it contemplates placing County Agricultural Agents in each 38 7tBfflg§ LMMIA of the agricultural counties for the immediate supervision of county exten- sion work in agriculture and home economics. The purpose of Agricultural Extension, as provided for by the Smith- Lever Act, is to bring the technical and scientific knowledge of the Depart- ment of Agriculture, of the agricultural colleges and of the experiment stations to the rural population, in order to make farm life more attractive and farming more profitable. Three distinct fields of work are presented, namely: (a) Instruction and practical demonstrations in general agriculture (agronomy, horticul- ture, animal husbandry, and animal disease control) to those engaged in farming and stock raising; (b) instruction and practical demonstrations in home economics to the farm women of the State, and (c) the boys and girls club work. While work is being conducted in all the above lines, the most import- ant work the present year is in the boys and girls club work. Nevada is the first State proposing to unite the boys and girls club work in agricul- ture and home economics with the rural school system. A satisfactory be- ginning has been made and it is believed that next year, when fully in operation, its success will attract the attention of other States to its advantages. 39 The Engineering College A LTHOUGH some engineering courses were taught at the A University of Nevada as early as 1887, the definite organi- zation into the various departments did not come until nearly ten years later. The University catalogue for the year 1896 is the first to record the present classification into the divisions of Arts and Science, Agriculture, En- gineering, and Education. The Engineering Department was then sub- divided under four heads: Mining Engineering under Professor -R. JD Jackson, Civil Engineering under Lieutenant E. W . Hubbard, U. S. A., who was also the Commandant; Mechanics under Professor Henry Thurtell and Practical Mechanics under Professor Richard Brown In 1899 the four divisions of the University were first called colleges, the Engineering section appearing as the College of Applied Science with the same organi- zation as above except for the addition of a new departmen o Mechanic Enginering under Professor G. F. Blessing. In January 1900, Professor C P Brown was put in charge of the School of Mines. Upon his death six months later, Professor L. F. J. Wrinkle was appointed Professor of Min- ing Engineering and he in turn was succeeded in 1902 by Professor G J Younff The first Electrical Engineering Course was offered in 190o b Professor J. G. Scrugham. The department of Civil Engineering was in charge of Professor B. A. Etcheverry from 1903 to 1905, Professor H W. Baker fr om 1905 to 1907, and Professor H. P. Boardman from 1907 to date At this time the equipment of all of the technical schools was of a very modest character. The substantial growth of the engineering courses was greatly accelerated by special appropriations of the legislatures ot 41 «-, :( z?. MffimM Mi iik: 1905 and 1907 and the increase of the Morrill Act Appropriations from $25,000 to $50,000 per year. The splendid gifts of Mr. Clarence Mackay in 1907 and 1908 placed the School of Mines in the foremost rank of well- equipped schools. Owing to the growing importance of electrical engineer- ing subjects the legislature of 1911 appropriated the sum of $40,000 for the erection and equipment of an electrical building. The departments of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering now possess about $30,000 worth of steam, gas, electrical and other machinery including measuring instru- ment s and similar apparatus. In 1913, Professor G. J. Young resigned as head of the Mining Engineering Department and his place was filled by Professor D. B. Huntley during the following year. In 1914, the present director, Professor F. C. Lincoln was appointed and the Engineering Col- lege organization now in effect was adopted by the Board of Regents. The outlook for Nevada engineering graduates has never been better than at the present time. Beginning with the financial stringency of 1907, the past eight years have seen comparatively few new industries created. However, the enormous flood of money put into circulation by reason of the European war orders has caused expansion and creation of new enterprises in every branch of the engineering profession. There is a growing oppor- tunity for two separate types of technical graduate, one of the commercial type, and the other the designing or laboratory type. The characteristics of the former are initiative, resourcefulness, understanding of human nature, tact and ability to think chiefly in terms of results. The character- istics of the latter are a strong sense of physical values, regard for past experiences and ability to plan details of the machinery of accomplishment. Engineering is the most inclusive of all professions. Practically every industry which can be practiced in Nevada requires the service of engi- neers. For the designing or laboratory type of engineer there await the problems of electro-chemistry and metallurgy, the development and con- servation of water supplies, the electrification of railways, the design of power plants and transmission lines to supply energy for the mining, smelt- ing, agricultural and other industries, and perhaps constructive invention along lines of engineering not yet developed. To the commercial or busi- ness type of engineer is alloted the principal task in the conquest of the vast expanses of mountain and plain in our State. The opening of mines, the construction of highways, railroads, reclamation projects, the super- intendance and operation of manufacturing plants, and the sales of ma- chinery are are all within his province. Population will await upon his 42 3 -ff!:; MMiimMtmM progress and the tide of immigration will mark his successful mastery of our resources. . Most industrial corporations employing Nevada technical graduates have some system of monthly grading which covers the following points: Technical Knowledge, Reliability, Tact, Initiative, Industry, Enthusiasm, Thoroughness and ability to use English. While the primary object of the Engineering Courses of the University of Nevada is to develop the first named qualification, the training given is planned to develop all of tne characteristics mentioned and to give the student opportunity to bring out the best that is in him. School of Mining Engineering " HE Mackay School of Mines ranks among the foremost minino- schools of America. This is not due to its size, but rather to its location in the State of Nevada— where min- ing is the paramount industry -its fine equipment, and the high character of its instruction. The Department of Mining and Metallurgy at the uXS3t7o7Nevada " was established in the year 1882. It has been in charge of the following professors : J. E. Gignoux 1882 to 1886 A. H. Willis 1886 t0 1889 R. D. Jackson , 889 to 1899 C. P. Brown I 899 to 19 ™ L F. J. Wrinkle 1900 to 1903 G J Young 1903 t0 1913 d. bhX:: i ° f t 4 F. C. Lincoln - 1914 to date In 1882 the University was at Elko and there were nine students registered for the mining course. The following year the registration in- creased slightly, but in 1884 no mining students registered. The University moved to Reno in 1886, and in 1887, the first classes were held with an attendance of four in the Mining Department. This attendance increased as the years passed until in 1907 it reached 73. From that time on there was a decrease in attendance, reaching the lowest point in 1914, while m the last two years the attendance has again increased, the registration f or the first semester alone of 1915-6 having reached 41. There have graduated from the School of Mines 136 students, many of whom now hold high positions in the mining world. Less than one-half of the alumni are at present in Nevada, less than one-quarter in California, and one-tenth are in foreign countries ; including Canada, Costa Rica, Sal- vador, Ecuador, Gold Coast, Java, and South Africa. Thus it is evident that the work of the school has been of benefit not only to the State of Nevada, but to neighboring states and to foreign countries as well. On June 10, 1908, the Mackay School of Mines, given to the University of Nevada by Mr. Clarence H. Mackay, and his mother, Mrs. John W. Mackay, was dedicated, and the departments of Mining, Metallurgy, Geology, and Mineralogy, took possession of their new quarters. The building is a beautiful one and contains fine offices and classrooms, a spacious museum, and well-equipped metallurgical, assay, chemical, and mineralogical laboratories. The first two years of the course in mining are arranged to give the student a good basal training in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and drawing, while a beginning is made in subjects directly related to mining, by courses in mineralogy and geology. Regular work in both mining and metallurgy begin in the junior year and continue through the senior year. The mining subjects which form the backbone of the work are four three- hour lecture courses on the elements of mining, placer mining, lode mining, and economics of mining, and the principal metallurgical subjects are ele- ments of metallurgy, fire assaying, ore dressing, metallurgy of gold and silver, and metallurgy of copper, lead, and zinc. In addition to these sub- jects, during the senior year the students are given instruction in mining and metallurgical design, current mining, metallurgical and geological liter- ature, mining law, and mine rescue, first-aid, and hygiene. Mining, metallurgical, and geological excursions are made, and these together with the required practical work in mining during the summer, and the summer school in mine surveying, give the students a most desirable familiarity with actual mining work. The course as a whole is thorough and well- balanced, and the student who graduates from the Mackay School of Mines is well prepared to take up mining work in Nevada, or in any other mining state or country. The work carried on at the Mackay School of Mines is not confined entirely to the instruction of young men in mining and allied subjects, but includes numerous other activities undertaken for the purpose of develop- ing the mineral resources of the State. Numerous letters are written, and 44 bi-weekly press bulletins are published, giving information on mining mat- ters. A State Mining Laboratory determines the value of samples sub- mitted to it by citizens of the State, and a short course for prospectors gives assistance and instruction to those who are interested in prospecting. Moreover, two secondary mining schools in Nevada, the Tonopah School of Mines, and the Virginia City School of Mines, whose object is to give in- struction to miners, are under the supervision of the Director of the Mac- kay School of Mines. The attendance at the Mackay School of Mines is improving, having been larger last year than in the three preceding years, and larger the first semester of this year than the whole of last. The alumni are holding positions of increased importance, and the Mackay School of Mines now has the honor of counting among its graduates the Governor of Nevada. The mining course has been improved by commencing the instruction in mining in the junior instead of the senior year, and adding to the number of hours spent upon this instruction. Extension work through the pros- pectors ' course, bi-weekly news bulletins, and control of secondary mining schools was instituted for the first time last year. The recent progress of the Mackay School of Mines has therefore been such that students, alumni, and instructors may well be proud of it. School of Civil Engineering T HE School of Civil Engineering of the University of Nevada stands well toward the front in the ranks of civil engineer- ing schools of the West. Aside from its complete equip- ment and extensive course of instruction, in its location it is particularly fortunate. Nevada, although the most , _______ _ sparsely populated State in the Union, has a great wealth of undeveloped resources. Within the next few years, in keeping with the present impetus toward colonization and development, these resources will be exploited, projects of every kind will spring up, construction work will be plentiful, and the demand for men trained in every branch of civil engi- neering will greatly increase. The graduates of the School of Civil Engineering of the University of Nevada hold high recognition among the engineering profession at large, as it attested by the responsible positions held by them, not only in the United States, but in foreign countries, including Mexico, the Philipines, Canada, and South America. 45 The scope of the course of instruction is indicated by the following sub- jects : Surveying, map drawing, highway engineering, structural engi- neering, — including steel bridges, — railroad engineering, sanitary engi- neering, comprising public water supplies and sewerage in all its phases, hydraulics, irrigation engineering, and water power engineering. An in- teresting feature is a study of current engineering literature which serves to interest the student in actual engineering work in progress and show him how numerous and practical are the applications of the very subjects he is studying in college. The course in mine surveying is especially complete, comprising a four weeks summer trip to some mining district of Nevada. Both under-ground and surface surveying are carried on and all surveying operations com- mon to mining engineering are practiced. In addition, each year the en- gineering students visit various projects within the State, in order to be- come familiar with details of practice and design. The equipment of the department consists of a complete assortment of different kinds of surveying instruments, a cement laboratory with facilities for conducting the many tests common to cement aand concrete construction, a 200,000 pound capacity Riehle testing machine for testing steel and other materials used in engineering structures, a drafting room well lighted and equipped, and many of the more expensive drafting instru- ments and devices in general use in large commercial drafting rooms. It is the aim of the department to emphasize the practical side of civil engineering to the fullest extent, at the same time giving proper weight to theory in order that its students may upon graduation, be fitted to take their places in the engineering world and to reflect credit upon the Uni- versity of Nevada. College of Agriculture THE College of Agriculture of the University of Nevada is located in the Truckee Valley, one of the richest agricul- tural districts of Nevada. Its situation is unsurpassed for the observation and study of all phases of practical agri- culture, such as irrigation, farm methods and practice, field crops, truck farming, fruit growing, dairying, live- stock breeding and management. The college itself is well equipped with all modern facilities for giving thorough instruction in all agricultural subjects. Its equipment includes 46 M mmM mM a 2151 acre farm, livestock of various breeds and kinds, a modern dairy plant, etc. The instruction is the same as that given in other high class agricultural colleges of the country, and is especially adapted to meet the educational requirements of our western farm practice. Four-Year Undergraduate Course. The College of Agriculture offers primarily four-year courses leading to a degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. These courses give the student the fundamental training in the agricultural sciences and their application to the production of crops and to general farm management. During the freshmen and sophmore years all agricultural students are required to take the same schedule of work with the exception of eleven credits which are open as electives for the choice of the student. In the junior year the agricultural work is divided into three groups, viz., Agron- omy-Horticulture, Animal Husbandry-Dairying, and Agricultural Engi- neering. The student enters that group in which he plans to specialize. During the freshman year of the four-year course, one period a week is devoted to forms of practical work in agriculture, horticulture and ani- mal husbandry not included in the laboratory courses. The practicums are chosen from week to week with reference to the needs of the individual student, and when possible, supplementary to the courses being taken in the class room and laboratory. Regular Course in Home Economics. The regular course in Home Economics is intended to give the young women of Nevada a comprehensive understanding of the household sciences, including both Domestic Science and Domestic Art ; to raise the ideas of homemaking and housekeeping ; to impart to them the technical skill and knowledge necessary for the proper management of a household ; and to give a broad, scientific training as well as a general culture. This course calls for the same entrance requirements as the four-year degree course in Agriculture. Farmers ' Short Course. This is a ten-weeks ' course planned for the large percentage of boys of the rural districts who find it impossible to take the four-year course in agriculture. It does not cover the more technical phases of agriculture, but treats chiefly on the practical application of scientific principles to farm practice. The subjects taught cover as much as can be given in the time 47 er MmmmM i iM and are made as practical as possible. It is open to those students who have completed the eighth grade or its equivalent, and who are eighteen years of age. Students under eighteen must present recommendations from their parents and the District Superintendent of Public Instruction. Short Course for Housekeepers. This is a ten-weeks ' course designed especially for girls who have not the time for the longer course but who still wish for some scientific train- ing in matters pertaining to the home. The more technical phases of the work are omitted ; special attention being given to the practical application of the scientific principles of household management. The entrance re- quirements are the same as for the Farmers ' Short Course. Farmers ' Week. In connection with the Short Course, a Farmers ' Course is held for oils week each year. During this week the farmers of the State and their wives meet at the University to discuss the important problems of the farm and home. The time is devoted chiefly to demonstrations by the various departments ; talks and discussions by the farmers themselves and addresses by specialists on the most important problems of rural life. The farm women take up the preparation of foods, the various phases of household management, and plans for social betterment in rural districts. College of Arts and Science DURING the first five years when the University was situ- ated in Reno the number of students registered in the Col- lege of Arts and Science was small and growth was slow. In 1894, however, a period of rapid growth began, the number of students in the college increasing from 38 in the calendar year 1893 to 70 in 1895. This increase was probably due chiefly to the lessened demand for labor and the consequent decrease in wages because of the financial troubles of 1893. With more prosperous years and an increased demand for labor, the growth of num- bers in Arts and Science ceased, the number registered remaining almost stationary during the twelve years 1896 to 1908. In the academic year 1908-09 there was a small increase, registration in the college being 79. But this small increase was the beginning of a much more rapid growth, which, except for a slight recession in two years, has continued and is still 48 AMgl fltfai in progress. From 71 in 1907-08, the number registered increased to 169 in 1914-15, and to 220 in the first semester of 1915-16. In this growth a gratifying fact is the rapidly increasing number of young men in Arts and Science. In 1909-10 twenty men were registered, and the same number in the following year, one man receiving an Arts and Science degree each year. In 1914-15 47 men were registered, five of whom received degrees. During the first semester of 1915-16, 57 men were registered, and this number has been increased to more than 60 by the registration for the second semester. The total number of Arts and Science students has trebled in nine years ; the number of young men has trebled in five years. The curriculum has varied about the same as in other colleges of Arts and Science. At first it was almost wholly prescribed, the only elective being between French and German. Then seniors were offered a further choice between biology and history. In 1895 about one-fourth of the work of the first two years, and from one-half to three-fourths of the work of the last two years was made elective. By a further extension in 1903, nearly half of the entire number of units required for degrees was left to the student ' s choice. In 1911 the prescribed units were reduced from fifty to six, with a corresponding increase in the number of free electives. Composition and Rhetoric is now the only course prescribed, though addi- tional courses in designated groups of subjects are required amounting to from twelve to eighteen units, the number depending upon the subjects offered for admission by the individual students. So far as possible, the College of Arts and Science aids students and graduates in finding suitable occupations and employment. Its chief pur- pose, however, is not to prepare students especially for professions or voca- tions, but rather to give them such knowledge and to implant in them such habits of work and thought as make possible the greatest success in any occupation and give life itself a deeper meaning. It offers training, not primarily because its students intend to enter the professions and voca- tions, but because they are men and women. It believes that one ' s vision should include many things not directly connected with his sustenance, and that personal efficiency is increased by enjoyment of the finest expression of thought. It believes that appreciation of the world in which we live is scarcely possible without some knowledge of the elements composing it, the physical laws governing it, the forms of life it contains; that a correct estimate of one ' s own country and its institutions, of one ' s own times, of one ' s own language and its literature, is measured in part by his knowledge 49 ■t:,. A -T Si flvB lA of other lands, other times, and other tongues; that, so far as knowledge is possible, error is without excuse, and that it is as much one ' s duty to reason correctly as it is to perform a mathematical computation correctly; that mind and spirit are real as matter. Department of Education TMES change. In our colonial days any one, worthless for other occupations, was reckoned good enough for teaching. A little later it was considered that if one had a fair schooling himself, he was qualified to " keep school " . The idea that a teacher needs not merely knowledge, but knowl- edge of how to teach spread very slowly in this country, although nearly 300 years ago the Society of Jesus organized a great army of skilled instructors and full two centuries ago Francke started at the newly founded University of Halle his teachers ' seminary, from which Prussia has gradually developed the most scientific professional education of teachers, which the world has seen. For two generations the training of elementary teachers has increased among us since Horace Mann established the first normal school in Massa- chusetts, but even now we have only made a beginning. It is less than a generation since we first gave special thought to the preparation of high school instructors and today we are incomparably behind the western countries of continental Europe, although we have appointed teachers of education in 350 colleges and universities. Nevada has done something, but so far not very much for the training of her teachers. She spends according to State Superintendent Bray ' s last printetd report $450,000 annually on the salaries of public school teachers, who come in large part from other States. Two hundred each year come in from the outside, mostly for just a year, and Nevada offers her children to their inexperienced hands because she is training only one-fourth of the new teachers she needs at the annual opening of the schools. These young women from our sister States are industrious and conscientious workers but they have no special knowledge of our conditions and usually no inten- tion of staying with us. From her hundreds of high school students this commonwealth could easily select and prepare sufficient teachers for her needs and the expendi- ture would be amply repaid by increased efficiency and by the fact that the money would be spent in training Nevada teachers for Nevada schools. 50 i-ri «lB tai E We Need: (a) more county normals so that every capable and am- bitious Nevada girl who wants to teach shall find the chance of training within her reach; (fo) a better equipment at the State University, especi- ally an up-to-date department of rural education, which will directly pre- pare teachers for the country schools and enable the University effectively to help the work of the county normals in every part of the State; (c) a practice and observation school on the campus to afford to prospective rural and secondary school teachers the practical facilities which the pros- pective elementary school teachers now enjoy by the courteous cooperation of the school boards of Sparks and Reno; and (cl) a development of the University summer session to give fuller opportunities of vacation study. What Nevada needs, she will have. 51 to C 0) o3 £ S O 0 — a) e + D to « S .S 3 K fe o3 o ] ' (:: % W l ' . z TE3 cM£g£ Department of Military Science and Tactics VENTS which have transpired abroad dur- the past year and a half have aroused a new and increased interest in matters mili- tary in our own country. More than ever has the realization been brought home to all that, while men by the millions may be K CssJj j a j mjyiffl j Major Jackson found to fight for their country ' s defense, the matter of obtaining officers to direct these men is a problem that is far more difficult, and without these trained officers suc- cess cannot be achieved. In all the schemes for prepared- ness which are being proposed, this is the question which confronts the country. It is the same question which con- fronted it in 1862, when on July 2nd of that year Congress passed what is now termed the Morrill Act, which Act made possible the establishment of the " land grant col- leges " throughout the country. The purpose of that Act was to establish in every State at least one institution whose object should be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach those branches which are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts. The idea upper- most in the mind of the author, as shown by his speech at the time of the passage of the Act, was to provide a means whereby each State would have the means within itself to officer any force which it might be called upon to raise. It was this Act which made possible the establishment of the Univers- ity of Nevada. For many years the support received from the government under the Morrill Act, and succeeding acts adding to the fund derived under that Act, furnished the main source of income for our University. The basis for military instruction lies in the words " and including military tactics " . It has always been the intention of the War Department that the course of military instruction should be such as would qualify the grad- uates of this and other land grant colleges to hold a commission in the Volunteers or National Guard. Sometimes, among students, this idea has been lost sight of, and it has been thought that only a means of physical exercise was to be provided. At the present time, however, the possi- 55 .r " i « »:, _ 5B»as»» s o o ! An o u PQ MkaiA bilities offered by the military department are being appreciated. While sufficient time is devoted to the actual drills and field maneuvers to thoroughly acquaint cadets with practical military work, at the same time the theoretical courses which are given throughout the four years offer cadets the opportunity of obtaining that knowledge which is not obtained on the drill ground, and which is absolutely necessary to fit them for the positions of officers of the Volunteers or the National Guard. Cadet Band Our battalion of cadets is reaching a high state of efficiency. Each year sees an improvement and an increased interest among cadets in the military department. Our graduates who go forth each year are being grounded in that knowledge which an officer should have, and should any emergency ever arise which would make necessary the raising of a volun- teer army, among these graduates of our University would be found ma- terial to officer any force which this State might be called upon to furnish for the national defense, and the force raised and thus officered would-be the equal of that sent forth by any State. 57 Batallitm Officers Major— ALBERT JACKSON.

HE graduating class of 1915 were banqueted at one of the prettiest functions of the year, given by President and Mrs. A. W. Hendrick. They decided on the happy plan that on April 16, 1916, and every year following, each one will write President Hendrick. He in turn will start letters to different members. In this way each will hear from all his classmates at least once a year. April 23, 1915. " Frolics of 1915, " the Senior farce, was written by Laurena Marzen, Dorothy Bird and Tom Walker. This, the fhrst play to be written by members of a class, and also the first play given by University students since 1912, scored a tremendous success. Characterization of different instructors on the Hill brought to the foreground latent abilities of the students. April 30, 1915. This evening the University Girls ' Glee Club gave their Spring recital in the gymnasium. The friends of the University look forward to this each year with great expectation and enthusiasm.

Reverend Raymond Cummings Brooks, pastor in the First Congre- gational Church in Berkeley, gave a most wonderful baccaleaureate ser- mon. In the evening the Mandolin and Glee Clubs, safely embarked on the lake, serenaded the host of people who had gathered around the banks. May 11, 1915. Today was Class Day, which ended so beautifully with the Senior ball. Many of the alumni were present, who danced as merrily as on the night which closed their four years ' active residence at the University. May 12, 1915. Honorable David Snedden, commissioner of education in Massachu- setts, delivered the Commencement address. The conferring of degrees immediately followed. 61 R,T;CTmMIA At 2 o ' clock the Alumni had luncheon together at the University din- ing hall. August 30, 1915.

On this first day of regis- tration, the University abounded in cheerful, busy and earnest men and women. August 31, 1915. The traditional fight between the Freshmen and Sophomores broke forth when early m the evening the Freshmen defiantly led a submissive 1919 Before the Rush 62 donkey, with numerals " 18 " painted on his sides, about the main streets. Meanwhile the Sophomores had not been idle. They had filled every con- spicuous place with posters bearing instructions by which the Freshmen were to diligently breathe, eat and sleep. Under the flagpole on the campus they eventually met to settle a few grievances. And it was not until shortly before dawn that Sophomore brains triumphed over Fresh- man brawn. September 3, 1915. A football rally and a smoker was held in the gymnasium. Great enthusiasm for the old game was shown by the speeches given and the manner in which all the men responded. The Cane Rush September 4, 1915. Intensely interested spectators filled the bleachers in the morning to see the Cane Rush, the annuel clash between the Sophomores and the Freshies. The Freshmen, stationed in the center of the Mackay Field, watched every move of the Sophomore group at the north end. The sound of the referee ' s gun set both sides in motion. Immediately the Freshmen plowed into the middle of the Sophomores. However, when in fifty sec- onds the report of the gun was heard, and every Sophomore began jump- ing and yelling, the spectators knew white vests and canes would bedeck Sophomores — not Freshmen. September 10, 1915. All the students and faculty, as guests of Delta Rho, gathered at the gymnasium for the first jolly-up dance of the season. Every new student was made to feel he was indeed a part of the student body. 6 Tffi J MIBIA September 11, 1915. The football men started training in earnest the beginning of this week. A game between the first and second teams in the afternoon re- vealed the fighting Nevada spirit for an exceptionally strong team this year. September 17, 1915. The faculty and students made merry at a dance the Agricultural Club gave in the gym. Alfalfa wafers, the unique feature of the evening, proved the most popular refreshment. September 24, 1915. The Freshmen hayride, on which only Juniors were invited, met with the usual disastrous attempts of the Sophomores and Seniors. Not until news of an injury to a Freshman did peace and quiet reign sufficiently for them to proceed with the dance. October 2, 1915. The Nevada football squad went down to defeat before the Sacra- mento Athletic Club, which was composed chiefly of men who had played the game for years. Following the game the Block N society held their first social dance of the season. October 8, 1915. A big rally down town tonight, with red fire in the streets, stirred the enthusiasm and aroused the best support for the game with the Olym- pic club. October 9, 1915. The game with the Olympics closed with the score 7 to 6 in favor of the visiting team. Good, clean, square playing on both sides kept the right sort of rooting evident. October 14, 1915. A goodly proportion of the student body assembled at the train to see the football team depart for Utah. The town resounded with college songs and yells. October 16, 1915. The experience and extra weight of the Utah Agricultural football team compelled Nevada to take the small end of the score in the game played this afternoon at Logan, Utah. 64 ifSL ?,i •ART -B l T MKSIA In the evening all the men of the University welcomed town alumni and prominent men of the State with a smoker and banquet in Lincoln Hall. October 19, 1915. Secretary of the Treasury W. G. McAdoo was the guest of honor at the University assembly. He, with Mrs. McAdoo, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Newton and Mr. Cookson, the Treasurer ' s private secre- tary, was escorted from the Riverside Hotel to the gymnasium by the University batallion. Secretary McAdoo addressed the assembly on the importance of mili- tary training at the University. Freshman Gym Class October 23, 1915. Davis Farmers defeated Nevada squad by four points. The game was exceptionally exciting from the beginning, for it seemed very prob- able that Nevada would score ahead of the opponents. October 28, 1915. All the rooters were at the depot to give a cheery send-off to the football squad as they boarded the train for the University of California. November 13, 1915. The local organization Delta Rho was granted a charter by the Pi Beta Phi fraternity, the oldest national college organization for women. Mrs. Ford J. Allen, national vice-president of Pi Beta Phi, with the as- sistance of Pi Phis from the Universities of California and Stanford, initiated eighteen active members and ten alumnae of Delta Rho into the secrets of Pi Beta Phi at the home of Mrs. P . A. Hawkins on Court street. 65 MlBlMtMA November 18, 1915. A rally and football show proved tonight that Nevada has the right sort of spirit whether winning or losing. The football team felt more than ever the power which will back them in the game Saturday with California. Today the second varsity played Sacramento Athletic club at Sacra- mento. November 20, 1915. California football team proved much too experienced for our men, who put up the best kind of a fight. Between halves of the game, the Sophomores supplied unexpected entertainment by releasing in front of the rooting section a pig, bearing the Freshmen numerals. After a lively chase, Freshmen, Sophomores and pig all landed in a heap. November 23, 1915. The Sigma Alpha fraternity accepted the football challenge of the " Wandering Greeks, " and bravely fought it out this afternoon on the Mackay athletic field. Although the Sigma Alphas are good fighters, thev know how to take defeat gracefully. November 24, 1915. The Sophomore class chose this Thanksgiving Eve to entertain their friends at the annual " hop. " They are to be congratulated on the success of their dance. November 25-29, 1915. A recess of these few days was given as Thanksgiving vacation. A number of the students, living near Reno, availed themselves of this op- portunity to visit home-folks. December 3, 1915. The Delta Delta Delta entertained most charmingly with a dancing party in the gym. Quantities of flowers and ferns formed an artistic background for the handsomely gowned ladies. December 7, 1915. In student body meeting, plans for a social hall, a meeting place 66 AKTW WM.ISIA particularly for the alumni, were discussed. President Hovey was em- powered to appoint a committee who would meet with the alumni com- mittee to formulate plans in raising a fund, in order to finance the con- struction of a building. The student body feels this is an extremely important movement. Dinner at the " N " December 9, 1915. Thomas Edsall and John Heard, representing the University of Ne- vada, met the debating team of the College of Pacific at San Jose. They graciously left their hosts a taste of defeat in return for the happenings of last year. December 23, 1915 — January 10, 1916. The Christmas vacation came as a happy rest immediately following the final examinations. The campus was deserted so far as students were concerned. January 12, 1916. . Miss R. Louise Fitch, national president Delta Delta Delta, will be the guest of the local chapter for the week. Many delightful parties have 67 ■i AK F B rMKSIA been planned and the campus is looking forward with great pleasure in becoming acquainted with Miss Fitch. January 19, 1916. The students majoring in mathematics and the mathematics staff of the factulty manifested a decided step in the right direction by organizing the Math Club. January 22, 1916. Tonight Nevada won from the Davis Agriculture team her first basketball game this season by a score of 27 to 24. As this suggests, the game was fast and shows possibilities of wonderful development. February 4, 1916. By way of their originality, the gym was transformed into a winter scene, and with the Junior Prom, the class of 1917 entertained faculty, students and down-town people. February 5, 1916. In the gym, Nevada basketball team won from the College of Pacific by a score of 53 to 18. Our team is rounding out remarkably, and hopes run high as to the final outcome of the season. February 12, 1916. Only with a narrow margin of 30 to 27 did Nevada outplay the Y. M. C. A. Quintet. From start to finish it was a hotly contested game. February 16, 1916. Tonight a crowd of interested students bade the Nevada basketball team " goodbye " and did their best in cheering them on to victory during their three games on the coast. February 17, 1916. At the University of California the Nevada team lost by only two points. Our boys played against great odds in that the hall was about half the size of our gym. February 18, 1916. Prominent people from all over the State participated in the jollities of the Military Ball. In fact, the dance registered an unusual success. 68 .. MA - ARTHlTMIvSIA And while all were making merry at the ball, a fight was raging in the Oakland gym between St. Mary ' s basketball team and ours, which ended sadly for us. February 19, 1916. Aroused by the defeat in the two previous games, Nevada ' s Quintet rallied unusual strength in the game with Stanford. This showed direct results by rolling off a score for us of 42 opposed to Stanford ' s 23. February 25-26, 1916. The third annual meet- ing of the State Welfare and Development confer- ence was held at the end of Farmers ' Week. A well- planned program made the campus an exceedingly live- ly scene for both University and town people. February 26, 1916. Nevada basketball fi v e displayed their real skill in the game with Santa Clara. As the score shows, 43-30, it was a big victory for us. Painting- the " N " March 3, 1916. Originality, team-work and genuine hospitality on the part of the Freshmen was evident at their Glee. The students and faculty regard them as decidedly promising material. March 4, 1916. Phi Kappa Phi, National Honor Fraternity, elected to membership Mary Raitt, Ruth Miller, and Ethel Winger. March 5, 1916. Miss Bertha Conde, National Student Secretary of the Y. W. C. gave a lecture at a Mass Meeting held in the Y. M. C. A. Building, large number of both University and town people were present. A., A 69 ARTBl f MlvSIA. March 6, 1916. Miss Mary Bentley, Student Secretary of the Y. W. C. A. for this field, is visiting the Nevada Y. W. C. A. this week. March 7, 1916. This week ' s issue of the Sagebrush was edited by the Y. W. C. A., with Margaret Kemper the Editor, as the " Special Y. W. C. A. Jubilee Edition " . This is the fiftieth year for the Y. W. C. A. and the Jubilee has been celebrated everywhere. March 10, 1916. Mrs. A. W. Hendrick was the charming hostess at a reception for Miss Bentley this evening. All of the young women of the University and the Faculty wives were bidden. March 17, 1916. Rivalry between the Aggies and Engineers manifested itself this afternoon and evening with a celebration for all the Campus. The Engi- neers started with a parade, followed by a baseball game between the two clubs. A dance finished this eventful day, and all the friends hope this scheme will be a precedent for the two clubs. March 31, 1916. Thomas Edsall and John Heard, as representatives of the Nevada Debating Team, proved worthy opponents of the Brigham Young Uni- versity on the negative side of the question " Whether the United States will abandon or adhere to the Monroe Doctrine. " April 7, 1916. Everyone responded with an inexhaustible supply of pep to Mackay Day. The various committees, upon whom the success depended, deserve no small amount of praise and credit. 70 $ « ARTTOLMISIA A. S. U. N. Harry H. Hovey ' 16 — President.

" " HE students of the University are organized into an association for the purpose of controlling college athletics a nd other student activities. This association, which is limited to the students who have paid their athletic fee, meets monthly to transact the business which comes before it. The powers of the Associated Students are vested in an executive committee which is composed of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the A. S. U. N., the Graduate Manager, Manager of Women ' s Athletics, and Representatives of the Junior and Sophomore classes. These officers are elected at the end of each year and assume office at the beginning of the next semester. The " Sagebrush " , a student weekly, is under control of this organi- zation, as are all other matters concerning student welfare. The Debating Society Henry Wolfson ' 16 — President. Vera Lemon ' 16 — Vice-President. Ethel Winger ' 16 — Secretary. John Heard ' 17 — Manager. The Debating Society continues to make progress. It has grown in numbers and in interest. From an experiment it has become a pronounced success. Under the able leadership of Faculty Director, Prof. A. E. Turner of the Department of Public Speaking, this society has made rapid strides and promises to become one of the dominant influences in the University. The history of the Society is brief but sparkling with interest. In 72 MX mMlSIA the beginning it attracted only the students in the college of Arts and Science; to-day it draws its strength from every department of the University. Interest in Inter-Class debating has been revived by the encourage- ment of the Board of Regents and the attractive prize offered by them to the winning class. Although our boys went down in defeat twice last year, we were not discouraged and renewed Inter-Collegiate activities this year with the grim determination to win. In the contest with the College of Pacific in December, this school was represented by John Heard and Thomas Edsall who scored a signal victory and won the unanimous decision of the judges. The victory was particular gratifying to the students of the U. of N. as it proved our strength against that of an able and experienced contestant. Tryouts for the Brigham Young debate are being held. The question for discussion is : Resolved, That the United States should abandon the Mon- roe Doctrine. The Nevada team will debate the negative and seek to uphold the Monroe Doctrine. More than a dozen debaters have entered the contest and the forensic battle promises to be an interesting one. Block " N " Society Frank C. Fake ' 16— President. John L. Kniffen ' 16— Vice-President. W. E. Melarky ' 17 — Secretary. H. G. Moore ' 17 — Treasurer. The Block " N " Society, which is composed of the men who have won their " N " in some athletic sport at Nevada, has been growing in promi- nence since its founding in 1912 until the present time, when it is con- sidered one of the most active organizations on the hill. Its chief aim during this time has been to keep a guiding hand on the college athletics. To accomplish this purpose and to get some idea of the athletic material in the state high schools, the society has obtained control of the State Academic Track meets. Formerly these meets were in the hands of the State Academic League officials, but now they are entirely under the control of the Block " N " Society, all the officials of the meex being " N " men. Since the inauguration of this society, the standard of athletics has been raised, competition has become keener, and under its guiding hand we hope to put forth teams worthy of representing the Royal Blue. 73 O C ' 5c e W 0) fMIvSIA The Engineering Club Lloyd L.

The membership roll at present includes 112 engi- neering students. Several prominent speakers, of varied engineering fame, have addressed the society. W. L. Ryan, the exposition lighting wizard, and A. E. Saunders, president of the American Institute of Mining Engineers, are two recent speakers who delivered enjoyable and instructive lectures for the benefit of the club members. As guests of the Reno Commercial Club, the Engineers did their enthusiastic best to make the opening ceremonies at the new quarters most successful. The spirit of cooperation shown by the local business 75 H 2 u u wAiittilfMMIA men has added greatly to the support of the club ' s activities, and due appreciation and support has been given in return. With the present interest, the club will continue to grow and prosper, and to work for the greater good of the University. The Crucible Club W. H. Stickney ' 16— President. H. G. Moore ' 17 — Secretary. A few years ago an organization called the Crucible Club nourished among the students of the Mackay School of Mines, but as general lack of interest in mining became manifest throughout the State, interest in the club also waned and for several years there was little or no interchange of ideas and experiences between the mining students. Realizing the need of a " get together " organization, a number of the students and faculty of the Mackay School of Mines, met Sept. 29, 1915, and formed the present Crucible Club. The old Crucible Club confined its membership to Seniors and Juniors of the Mining Department, but the new organization embraces not only all mining students but geology students as well. The meetings are open and anyone who is interested in the subjects under discussion are wel- come. Papers upon mining or allied subjects are read at each meeting which are held every two weeks. In view of the fact that Flotation Concentration has attained such world wide attention, the Crucible Club has taken up some of the problems in connection with this process. At present the plan is to collect all data and articles pertaining to the question while later, volunteers may be called for, to investigate research problems connected with Flotation. The primary purpose of the club is educational with a view of obtaining new students in the Mining Department and of interesting prominent mining men from all parts of the State in the character of work that is being carried on at the Mackay School of Mines. 77 5 bo bo — :jl ,.:_ " 1 ' u rfl 1 mmmmmmiz. The Aggie Club Dave Abel ' 16 — President. L. D. Riley ' 16— Vice-President. Rufus Ogilvie ' 18 — Secretary. Frank Harriman ' 18 — Treasurer. The " Aggie " Club is a society composed strictly of students registered in the College of Agriculture and the professors of this college. Its purpose is to promote interest in agriculture in the State and to study various agricultural problems which arise from time to time. In order to do this, men, prominent in the agricultural world, are asked to bring before the society their experiences in their special line of work. The club also has a social side to it. Each month the members of the club have a feed in the Dairy Building. During the first semester the society entertains the college at its annual dance, and near the end of the second semester the members meet to partake of the " Aggie " banquet which is open only to the " Aggie " students. Following this working plan, the club has grown in numbers and efficiency to an astounding degree. The Mathematics Club For some time past there has been considerable talk of organizing a club consisting of the students majoring in mathematics but it was not until the last semester that, through the efforts of Dr. Haseman and Mr. Nyswander, the present Mathematics Club was formed. At the first meeting of the society, the membership of which is limited to those majoring in mathematics, a constitution was adopted and the following officers elected: Dorothy Morrison ' 17 — President. Magdalena Bertchy ' 18 — Secretary. Chester Brennan ' 17 — Chairman of the Program Committee. The purpose of the club is to develop a better understanding of this important subject and to become acquainted with those mathematical problems which are not touched upon in the class room. To accomplish this, a series of lectures by the different professors, the members of the club and those interested in this work have been arranged. Several very interesting phases of this study have been given and many others are to be brought up in the near future. 79 ■F?si ..efi:: Mt mWMimM Y. W. C. A. Vera Lemmon ' 16 — President.

The purpose of the organization and of its employed secretary, Miss Winnifred Wygal, is to s erve at any time and in any way the women of the University, and to initiate and devise means of serving the townspeople where it is desirable. In this way two ends are gained: service where service is needed and the awakening of responsibility in those students who carry out the association policies. As a part of its work on the University Campus, weekly meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon. The type of these meetings vary greatly. Some are devotional and inspirational, others are discussional, 80 01 e IS a d . ■■ ; and still others are purely entertaining. They are led by the students and the program of each meeting is in the hands of either student speakers, faculty speakers or outside speakers. For the last four years the association in Nevada has been repre- sented at the summer conference, held for ten days during the first two weeks of August, at Asilomar, California. Last summer fourteen Nevada girls were present and it is the wish of every one of them that every girl in the association might be able to go there sometime. The growth of the Nevada Y. W. C. A. has been greater each year. Four years ago there were just thirty-three members. The present mem- bership totals one hundred, and each one of these girls has grasped in some way or another the spirit of active service which the Y. W. C. A. stands for. Every one of them is thinking, in a more or less degree, of what the association seems to be saying to all : " The world is beginning, We must go and help the King.

The club furnishes suitable music for every occasion of the University life and it is often in demand by downtown organizations as a dispensor of harmony. On the trips through the State, the club and the individual members try always to uphold the good name of the University and continually work to interest prospective University students. " The Warblers " is the name of the real organization of the club. Men who have sung at least one season are eligible to membership in " The Warblers. " The badge is a lyre enclosing a tiny N and holding a pearl for each year of membership. An interesting event of Commencement Week is the Glee Club ' s serenade to Manzanita. The club floats around the lake in canoes and sings dreamy love songs accompanied by stringed instruments while the fair co-eds listen in the twilight.

DEFINITION of a University was once given thus, that it was a factory for turning raw material into calm-eyed hardened athletes, kid-finished society leaders and future members of Who ' s Who. The Alumni then of the Uni- versity of Nevada are its finished product and it may be interesting to know just how this raw material has turned out. Twenty-two years ago the Alumni Association of the University of Nevada formed itself with four members; there are today four hundred and fifty -four living members; twenty-four have answered the last roll call. Many of these four hundred and fifty have wandered far from their Alma Mater, and we find them carrying the vision and message of this University into Canada, to the East Indies, to South America, to Central America, to England, to Africa, into the Philippines, and in our own United States to Alaska, California, Arizona, Washington, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, Montana, Illinois, Utah, Wisconsin, Oregon, South Dakota, Maryland, District of Columbia, Texas, Idaho, and Massachusetts. In all these countries and in many of the States they are filling high places and are leaders. Of the four hundred and fifty-four living graduates, carrying the degrees and honors of the University of Nevada, there are two hundred 93 jymfi fMl lA and eighty men and one hundred and seventy-four women. Let us see what they are doing. Nine we find are adding to their knowledge and are students in other Univertisies ; twenty-nine are following agricultural interests, livestock raising, dairying and tilling farm and field. Sixty-one are practicing mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering and its allied branches; seventy-three are mining men, managers and superintendents of mines, foremen, surveyors, assayers, and filling other places in the mining field. Of judges and lawyers there are ten; chemists three. In mercantile and commercial corporations in which they hold a share we find twenty-one; three are hotel men. In clerkships and clerical places Mrs. Louise Blaney Secretary-Treasurer ALUMNI OFFICERS. Melvin Jepson President Miss Dell Boyd Vice-President there are nine men and eight women. Four are in real estate and insur- ance ; one is a governor and fifteen are state and federal officials ; of these, two are women. Four are in the United States Army ; two are architects and contractors; one is a transportation official; six we find in a large railroad ' s land department; two are doctors. Eighty -three are teachers, of these twenty are men and sixty-three are women, and they range from the college professor aand instructor through the successive years of the high and elementary schools. Of the one hundred and seventy-four women, eighty-four are married, or forty-eight percent, making this quite the favored profession for the women. Of the 280 men, there are one hundred and sixty who are known to be married, or fifty-seven percent — 94 :. ■■■■■ ' - £3S WM12dA and we know of several no longer open to engagement. There are about twenty-five whom we find in a variety of places, one is a public speaker, one a public singer, another in the oil business, a few we have not been able to learn about, and another few who are still at home with father and in the lap of luxury. With this record before us who can say that the " factory " had not true pattern and shaped its material well, for wherever they have gone Nevada ' s men and women have become powers to translate into the social forces and into practical life the vision of their University and the hope of their leaders.

Doten, accompanied by his brother, Alfred Doten of the Flanigan Warehouse, climbed Peavine mountain — the old gray hill northeast of the University. The only thing remarkable about the climb is the fact that both gentlemen are inclined to be just a little stout, and as the mountain is something like eighty-five hundred feet above the sea level, excess baggage is mighty important. Both Dotens are old U. of N. men, which accounts for the persistence of their " pep " . While Prof. D. was looking around under the rocks for bugs on the extreme summit of the mountain, his brother rummaged around in a heap of stone which looked like a prospector ' s corner monu- ment until he found a little tin can which he opened. He was a little more than surprised to find in the can a nice clean sheet of paper with perfectly fresh writing on it. His surprise was due to the fact that the writing was his own and he had written the message some nineteen years before, at the end of his Freshman year in Nevada, when he was feeling all the enthusiasm of the young fellow who has just finished a successful Freshman year and now feels that he is really at last that most exalted being a Sophomore. This was the writing on the paper. " We the undersigned students at the Nevada State University were here on the 30th of June 1896. We made the trip in safety thanks to the county commissioners and the holy horn spoon. Wah! Hoo! WahM! Zip! Boom! Ah!!! Pvah! Rah! Rah!!! NEVADA ! (Signed) : Jason M. Libbey, N. S. U. Mines, ' 99. Alfred Doten, Liberal Arts, ' 99. The expression " the holy horn spoon " was such a favorite byword of Freshman Emmet Boyle (now Governor of Nevada) that it became a sort of slogan with the entire class of ' 99. 96 ©ana C ftltng August 26, 1915 M Jjopljomore in tfje College of engineering arolb a rtnsteafc Hanuarp 9, 1916 a ipreslnnan in tfje College of £nginprring SEN 1 ORS ' SESE m?TWWMmt Vera Lemmon 1916 OFFICERS First Semester Vera Lemmon — President.

" Dave " Abel ♦ QIXTEEN began much as every other class began, strong in ►»-) numbers and fired with the desire to " show those Soph- mores what was what. " Valiancy, persistence, and inde- scribable fervor were not lacking, but knowledge of the strategic points of rushes was not for the Freshmen ; and on the fateful morning that was to decide the destiny of the infant class, and ordain who should wear the white vests and twirl canes, the coveted cane in the twinkling of an eye was carried acr oss the line, and the Sophmores wildly yelled in victory. But we were undaunted, for we were young and ahead stretched four years in which to redeem our- selves and make a name. And so now it is to look backward and see what those years have done to wipe out the memory of the first unsuccess- ful skirmish and to establish ' Sixteen permanently as a real class. The Freshman year, after recovery from ignominious defeat, bright- ened perceptively, and on every side opportunities beckoned and the young Frosh answered, with the result that on the football squad, in the basket- ball team, and in other activities ' Sixteen was noticeably " among those present. " And what of the social side? Did we lament our hayride, on which feminity and masculinity alike were initiated into the mysteries of an early morning raid in which garden hose and cold, cold water played important roles? We forget it as soon as the Sophmores let us, and 102 ARTHirMI IA planned in joy for social glory. To the Freshmen, social glory means the Freshman Glee; so early in the second semester all of ' Sixteen ' s energy- was directed toward that, and many were the parties where decorations were made, and plans formulated, and dancing done on the side. Even at this late date Sophmore schemes did not lie dormant, and it was only by secret and cunning that these parties ever occurred successfully. As a reality the Glee was all that could be wished for ; as a memory it stands for the spirit of ' Sixteen, big and successful. Sophmore days were calm and uneventful, as Sophmore days most always are. First, we won the cane rush, regained our honor and white vests, and flounted on the well earned canes the purple and gold of our victory. Still were we in football and this year won in inter-class basket ball. Frivolity was with us yet, and the library saw us often — but not for studious purposes. This year in the gym aglow with pink streamers, fittingly symbolic of Sophmore joy, the Hop took place with ' Seventeen as the guest of honor ; rushes were forgotten, and all the merriment of last year ' s Glee was experienced. Responsibilities were many, but to the giddy Sophmore the world is too bright and rosy to take responsibilities seriously; so we advanced with customary swiftness and not much worry to the Junior year. With Junior days came dignity belonging only to upper classmen, and with all the gravity attendant on the wearing of the Junior plug and corduroys the Juniors supervised the rushes, and maintained a lordly atti- tude. Classes became serious matters, and individual distinction was attained ; the gridiron and the basketball court tested our valiancy again, and for the third time we planned and gave a dance. No one big thing stands out with any prominence, no single undertaking, but during these busy years ' Sixteen has always been on the alert to do its share, and, with fitting modesty, we feel we may be missed. So we have come to the very last chapter of the history. The first semester was marked only by class meetings and craming for ex ' s. And now we wait for the Senior play, for Commencement Day, for the cap: and gown and all the dignity thereof, for the Senior Ball which means our last college dance, and above all for our coveted degrees. Shall we say we have been established as a real class ? The achievements of four years seem to say so. And so we stand " the world all before us, where to choose, " and say with the poet, " Drummer, strike up, and let us march away!

Ed Neacham 1 1 ' T is most difficult to write of the exploits and honors of the Class of ' 17 with that modesty and diffidence of style which is considered so essential when writing the history of our own class. But we would fain set aside such con- vention and instead tell you with perfect frankness, the heights to which ' 17 has risen. What if we were the greenest class of Freshies that had ever struck the Hill ? Our deeds but shine the brighter. Previous to this time there had been a few Preps among the Frosh to put the babies wise to a little of the strategy practiced by the Sophs. But we were the very first class not to own a single Prep, and consequently we drained the cup of experi- ence to the dregs. Our college life begins in some such fashion as this. We had heard tell of things that were done to children when caught out alone at night, so the fellows banded together in a bunch and sallied forth one evening. It was a Sunday and we think the Frosh were bound for church, but their progress was intercepted and their good intentions scattered to the four winds. Sophs and Frosh met in front of the Congregational church and proceeded to mix it. The services within were somewhat annoyed by the disturbance without, but that wasn ' t the fault of ' 17. It had been 114 AT?.TCTrMISIA their desire to swell the volume of those hymns, had not the hardened and caloused Sophs interfered. To make a long story short the arrival of the Reno police prevented a fight to the finish, and the affair was called a draw. Wednesday evening the Frosh gathered together in the barn of one Eddie Neasham, there to spend the night in comparative safety, while they kept their eyes pealed for ' Sixteeners. Word reached them that the One on Us posters were up, so they sallied forth and tore them down, and just by way of showing the stuff that was in them, they hoisted a dummy. But the Sophs failed to appear. Two nights later the regular dummy rush took place, it was a close fight, but the Sophs went down to defeat and ' Sixteen tasted, for the first time, the sweetness of victory. The following Monday morning the taste was a little bitter for ' 17 lost out in the cane rush. However they held the Sophs for four minutes and twenty-seven seconds and put up a regular fight. About this time the Juniors began to hint around and tell us that it was the " customary thing " for the Frosh to show their appreciation of 115 : ; the existence of their big brothers and invite them to a hay ride. So ' 17 did the " customary thing " and gave a hay ride and dance at Huffakers, and incidentally they received the " customary thing " — eggs, chemicals, and the gauntlet of garden hose. But why dwell on details? Next in order of events came the all absorbing football, here Fresh- men dinks were conspicuous on the field and at yell practice on the Bleachers. And in this sport as also in the later ones of basketball, base- ball and track, ' Seventeen was never without representation on the Varsity teams of each one of them. Of course not all the Frosh were win- ning laurels on the athletic field, many were cheerfully building bonfires and painting the N and yelling themselves hoarse at rallies, just to help the cause along. At the rally just before the Nevada-All Black Game, ' 17 quite distinguished herself by putting on a stunt in the program given at the Majestic. But the Sophs thought that was one honor too many for their rivals and, green with envy, they rained cabage bouquets on the per- formance. But the precedent had been established and later, as Juniors, ' 17 saw to it that the Freshmen kept up the custom. As Spring came on the social feeling became so strong in the Fresh- men that they decided to give a party. A Thursday night was chosen on ' 17 Before the Cane Rush 116 9 r ft I A aJffMt l A which they were to trip to syncopated time, down at Beebe Hall. But alas, experience had not yet taught the Frosh that there were too many " social functions " and that that sort of thing had to be confined to week- end nights. ' Seventeen retreated in good order but not before she had attended various class and faculty meetings and listened to the predica- ment of one who " was between two fires. " Backed by all this notoriety ' 17 Winning the Cane Rush the Frosh pulled off a wonderful glee a little later in the Spring, which even Seniors confidentally told us " was the best yet. " When ' 17 organized as Sophmores, they found that many had not returned and the mob of Freshmen would outnumber them two to one. But with a spirit that never says die, we got out a bunch of posters that had never been equalled for stinging sarcasm. It was in the dummy rush that ' 17 won renown. The deeds of glory of that chill morning recall Bunker Hill and show that the hearts of the forefathers of our country still beat valiently in the breasts of ' 17. Of course we lost, we were out- numbered two to one, but it took the Babies seventeen minutes to tie us up. Next came the cane rush and here we proved the undeniable truth 117 MKSIA -m that brains are mightier than brute force, and we carried the day by strategy. And now comes the Junior year when once more ' 17 gathered its numbers together. As upper classmen it seems fitting that we should stop and take stock of our achievements as Freshmen, Sophmores and finally as Juniors. We have mentioned ' Seventeen ' s valor on the field of battle, her " pep " in athletics and her ability to stage good dances. But ' 17 early discovered that there were other things to be done in college. Her record in scholarship during the first two years showed that ten had received honors at the hands of the University for excellancy in that direction, and who can tell how many more will be likewise distinguished at the end of our Junior year. We have been represented also in debating, one of our number having made the Varsity team. Throughout her entire his- tory ' 17 has stood behind every progressive movement on the Campus, and the offices held by Juniors today are a witness of the strength and reliability of the class.

The " Colonel, " unlike most Southerners, seems to think that there are other Belles in the U. S. besides those from the Blue Grass. In fact, he is attracted a great deal by the Sagebrush variety. Outside of learning how to run a Mitchell car, Moorman ' s chief interest seemed to bend toward debating. As the former editor of the Artemisia, he did a great deal toward the success of the book and we are indeed sorry that he was unable to continue the work so well begun.

" comes from more than half a dozen at once. But that is not all, for " pep " really expresses her best of all! It is extremely dangerous if anyone lets fall the slightest word of criticism about the Junior class. " It ' s absolutely the best class that ever happened, " she asserts, and for the next hour she puts forth statements to substantiate her loyalty. VERNON C. ORGAN " Organ " 2 A Reno, Nevada Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Class Vice-President (1); Class Football Team (1), (2); Class Basketball Team (1), (2), (3); Color Sargeant (3). Vernon dances divinely; he whirls and dips at just the proper moments; his rythm and glide is the marvel of the fair sex, and the cause of worry to the men. He studies, sometimes, with dreamy eyes fixed on space, while the prob lems of Calculus lie unsolved and unraveled on the pages before his eyes. 119 Ejntii V7m. Stickney Elsie Humphreys Wm. Melarkey " Hard-Rock Bill ' WILLIAM H. STICKNEY T. H. P. O. New York City Mines Varsity Football Team (1); President Crucible Club (3). As a Freshman, Bill made the Varsity Football Team but has not found time for athletics since. He is an earnest student and a consistent burner of the mid- night oil. He has been something of a globe trotter, and on the rare occasions when he can be persuaded to talk about himself, he tells queer and interesting stories of life in different parts of the world. Every now and then he tears him- self away from his studies and steps forth into the social world where he is a particular favorite with the ladies. ELSIE HUMPHREYS " Elsie " AAA Reno, Nevada Arts and Science Secretary Y. W. C. A. (2); Varsity Basket Ball Team (1), (2); Captain (3); Class Basketball Team (1), (2); Captain (3). Basket ball seems to be Elsie ' s joy and despair for a few months in each year. One may hear her saying to almost anybody: " Well, are you going to come out to-night? Come on, we need you. " The person may sometimes say yes but usually she says: " I ' ll try, but I don ' t believe I can. ' Mother told me not to play very much. " Elsie keeps right on and stops the next girl, with no better luck. WILLIAM E. MELARKEY " Bill " s A Reno, Nevada Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Secretary Block " N " Society (3); First Sergeant Company B (3); Varsity Track Team (2); Class President (3); Executive Committee (3); Class Football Team (1), (2), (3); Class Track Team (2), (3); Artemisia Staff (3); Secretary Engineers ' Club (3). Bill is one of the noisiest individuals on the campus. If you wish to locate him, find some convenient place, take a seat and wait till his gentle voice is heard. You won ' t have to wait long. He is every one ' s friend, and it is hard to find any one who is so generally well liked. 120 JIM eOShj s Ruth Pyle Chester Brennan Clara O ' Neill " Rufus, " " Ruthie " Honor Student (1), Scholarship (1); Y.

(3); Artemisia Stag (3). Ruth Ann is known by various nicknames in and about the University bul down at Walker ' s house " Fat " calls her " The National Board of Censorship. " Needless to say there are not many things that can get passed Ruth. Her life at the college has been characterized by splendid scholarship, prominence in student affairs and an absorbing interest, up until May 12, 1915, in the Men ' s Glee Club. A winning friendliness of manner, together with an unusual amount of businesslike efficiency, have combined to make her not only a real force in the life of the Campus, but also one of its most popular girls. Elko, Nevada CHESTER BRENNAN " Chett, " " Bingle Brennie " A T Arts and Science Class Football Team (1), (2); Sergeant Company B (3). He is one of the astute 1917 supporters. He began like all freshmen with a conscientious idea of hard studying. There seems to be no exception in his case for he cast aside his earnest ideals for the real college life, and now he takes to the fox trot like a camel does to water. The card machines weaken when " Brenny " appears on the scene. His loyalty, however, makes him a valuable man for his college. CLARA O ' NEILL " Connie " II B Reno, Nevada Arts and Science Clara is very fond of athletics. In fact she is very anxious to have Hockey introduced at Nevada, as a recognized sport for women, because of its close resemblance to shinney. Connie has the gift of keeping a straight face when every one else is laughing, and laughing when another would be downcast over the worries of the world. Her greatest accomplishment is dancing and she has the honor of being the first to introduce the immortal fox trot on the Hill. ■ EZ1 ■- ' ■ 121 Et33 Carl Kemper Dorris Taylor Arthur Hood Auburn, California CARL D.

Bart knows everyone and everyone knows him, many to their sorrow for he is an expert in his own line. He is for anything that comes along and some- times doesn t wait but starts things for himself. He likes to have things go his own way and when he does give in he does it in a manner which makes the other feel ashamed of himself. ' However Bart is a good fellow and everyone likes him, and we only wish he would stay with us instead of finishing his education elsewhere as he intends doing 122 ■ ca «■ « Elrod Pohl Dorothy Morrison Charles Gooding I Reno, Nevada ELROD POHL " Pooly " Reno, Nevada Electrical Engineering Class Basketball Team (2); Class Football Team (1), (2); Sergeant Company A (3). As a fusser swell, this Pooly boy takes great pains, in fact great joy. Like all Frosh he was prone to forget the lowly clink and so got wet. But now as a T mior bolcl does he brave Manzanlta with great glee, steps out with Fresh- man girls galore and in Campus " makes miles " for sure.

She has never been known to be lacking in cofleee " Pep " or Iver to have missed a dance, when a pia no and drums were ; Resent T?uly it may be well said that if Shakespeare had known Dot he would hITe said of her, as he did of Miranda, that modesty is the jewel m her dower.

Immediately after entering the University, Isabel delved deeply into the intricacies of Latin. The gold medal loomed bright before her, for Isabel had been some student in High. But less and less she studied, and now she is going the same pace as the rest of us. Last semester she taught school — made a fine school ma ' am, too. She is very artistic. You should see her paint. Why, everything she draws is so lifelike and real, that it seems that it might be picked from the paper. Her work is really quite wonderful. Oh, that I had that temperament, so artistic; that demeanor, so mild. WILLARD W.

The reason is apparent, a truant officer was said to be about and he might have arrested her, and taken her back to kindergarten. Thus the University would have suf- fered an irreparable loss.

During the rushes that fol- followed registration we easily defeated the Sophomores but lost our our pride at the cane rush. After we had become thoroughly organized, plans were made for the Freshmen hayride, and although the Sophomores did all within their power to spoil our evening, they were unsuccessful and we had a wonder- . Reminiscence ful time. During the first semester we were well represented in the college teams as well as in other activities. Soon after the holidays we started planning our first big dance and in April, 1915, our hopes were realized in the Freshmen Glee, which was undoubtedly the best dance of the year. Again we were represented in athletics, in fact most of the baseball team consisted of Freshmen, who further demonstrated the ability of the class of 1918. Also we did credit to ourselves by winning the Interclass Track Meet. On the whole we considered our first year a highly successful one. 139 WSmm ■MZ SWMm$ih Our Sophomore year began very auspiciously. Although our num- bers were fewer, we still had the same " pep " and by winning the cane rush, we started our second year in the right manner. The next thing in which we took active part was the spoiling of the Freshmen hayride, a task which seemed highly successful. Then we started working on the Hop and on Thanksgiving Eve the gym. was the scene of the 1918 Hop, one of the best class dances given. So far this semester we have done nothing, but soon expect to start plans for the 1918 Artemisia. i NOTICE NASTY NURSLINGS OF NINETEEN OBEY vomL S D Ls TC R SOPHOMORES 1918 ' s Poster 140 FREsrn s 1919 OFFICERS First Semester John Woods — President.

NE morning in late August we, the Class of ' 19, trooped up the Hill with bright and smiling faces. Over one hundred strong we were, some from the city and many from the farm, and each happy in the consciousness of a high school diploma abiding safely at home. We had come to college still blushing with our high school honors, and we intended to make something of a splash. During the first two days we strode about the Campus with firm step, registering under the kind direction of the condescending Juniors, and disregarding utterly the malignant glances of the lean and hungry Sophs — we gave them to understand in more ways than one, that, though green and untried, we were nevertheless a power to be reckoned with. We soon organized, and, when night had fallen, set forth to meet the foe. Ten o ' clock of the first night ' s campaign beheld us marching courageously up the street, escorting in our midst the Sophomore class in effigy, a lazy gray donkey, with staring ' 18 ' s painted on his sleek sides. Through the gates we led him, and even to the flag pole, but no Soph showed his face. We disposed of the burro and scoured the town for our enemies. On Mill street we met them at last, and there ensued a battle which will be long remembered. When the war cloud passed, the Sophs, bound hand and foot, littered the ground on all sides. We were the victors. In the small hours of the morning, after more than half our number had drifted homeward, thinking it was all over, we met the enemy again 142 MMyb: at the foot of the flag pole. We were battle scarred and weary, and they proved too strong for us. But when at last we were tied, the Sophomores showed in their careworn faces that they had earned their rest. The dummy rush also went against us. Superior numbers and more sleep on the part of our opponents finally overcame the class of ' 19. Fortune had doomed us to defeat. Again in the cane rush, we were outnumbered. Sheer strength com- bined with strategy, learned only at the cost of an overwhelming defeat the year before, won the day for ' 18. The Sophs romped away with the cane, much to our chagrin. The Freshman hayride saw the tables turned. Though armed with eggs, vegetables, and chemicals in squirt-guns, our Sophomore foes were unable to break up our party. After a furious struggle, in which much blood and punch was spilled, our revelry resounded far into the night, while the members of the class of ' 18 trailed homeward one by one, cursing our indomitable spirit and the Sparks police force, whose rest they had disturbed. From the first we have done well. We have learned the college yells, and worn our dinks and sent forth our victorious athletes, like any patriotic class whose heart is with the school. At the football rally we staged a play that was the delight of the town, and which bred dis- comfort only in the bosoms of the Sophomores. Under our liberal minis- trations of white wash the block N on the hillside took on a resplendent coast that was the marvel of the upperclassmen for many weeks. Great credit is due the Freshman girls for the generous part they played in pro- viding lunch on the occasion of the painting. Our history is short, for, as a class we are young. But this year marks only the beginning of our achievements. - 17tTn8 ' itf7B3BST OT amymtro of fissvw w . •$ Rs io - oc root a - M iooo ,$ y » f .J| A» H AWtfY rtOOY • A- }JKA TOT WlSft A Panel Over Fireplace in the Training Quarters THE old players looked for- ward to the season of 1915 with a great deal of anticipation. Nevada was fc ill|!Ill= |P§ changing from Rugby to JL Mm lllllllllilllll American football and the result was awaited with much interest. It was at this game that we, in years past, had held our own with both Stanford and California, and had even gone as far as Seattle and Vancouver to show our pow- ers. What would be the result after nine years of another game? Everyone agreed that it would be hard to " come back, " but everyone said that at least we would have the crowds behind us, for the general pub- lic would attend a game of American foot- ball where they wouldn ' t a game of Rugby. The critics were right in one respect. It was hard to " come back. " But the crowds did not come to support the men in their efforts. Under the direction of Coach Glascock and Prof. Haseman, the men were put at work learning the fundamental principles of the game and the season was well advanced before the men could intelligently grasp what they were doing. In the first practice game of the season, Captain McCubbin received a broken ankle which put him out of the game. This was a serious handi- cap for his sure foot and head work would have added greatly to the strength of the Nevada team. Lloyd Root was elected to fill the place of captain and as a fast and hard hiting halfback, he showed his ability to fill the position. Nevada met the Sacramento Athletic Club in the initial game of the Capt. McCubbin Capt. Root. 147 Coach Glasscock Prof. Chas. Haseman MIxSIA t season. The Sacramento aggregation was composed of veterans who after strenuous effort finally triumphed over Nevada ' s untried men. Candland, playing quarterback, received a broken shoulder and was out of the game for the rest of the season. In the second game, the heavy Olympic Club team won by only one point. The playing of the Nevada men was a surprise to all and the way they stood up under the continued line plunging of the 200-pound backfield showed their undaunted spirit. The Olympic ' s attack was like a steam roller in the first half and then something went wrong and the steam roller rolled back with Nevada pressing it hard. The second half was Nevada ' s but repeated attempts to make another score led to fumbles and the whistle blew with the ball close under the Olympic goal. In the game with the Utah Aggies at Logan, Nevada showed a marked reversal of form and met defeat again. The game was played at Logan on a very poor field, which was disastrous for our men who were used to a smooth turf. Nevada ' s speed was lost and she couldn ' t work her rugby plays while Utah did effective work in the old style line bucking. The Davis Farmers were our next opponents and although Nevada Carson Indians and Second Varsity 149 p C m S =1 U. C. versus Nevada Bucking- California ' s Line «] £r s «y? ;: l fM fete outplayed the visitors, Davis won by a small margin. Nevada played good football but made several bad fumbles which let Davis through. Nevada ' s next game was in Berkeley where they played the U. C. Freshmen. This time we had no excuses to offer, because Nevada ' s playing was a disappointment. The Freshmen played a fast open game which we were unable to break up. Nevada scored one touchdown when Kniffen scoped up a blocked kick and crossed the Freshmen ' s line. In this game the crippled list was increased by two, Root and Donovan. After resting two weeks, the Varsity went into their big game with Cal ifornia, expecting to take a beating but resolved to die game. The score was overwhelming in California ' s favor but it doesn ' t tell how the Nevada men fought; of the severe beating they took or how every man, gave all that was in him to hold the score down. The forward pass to- gether with the speedy California backfield were the cause of our down- fall. Nevada lined up as follows : Donovan, left end ; Kniffen, left tackle ; Lintott, left guard; Kimmel, center; Baker, right guard; Jensen, right tackle; Stever, right end; Fake, quarterback; Captain Root, right half- back; Hill, fullback; Martin, left halfback; Greenwood, Crowley and Hawkins, substitutes. During S. A. C. Game 152 6AC H tart ASKETBALL as a boys sport attracts more attention at the U. of N. than any other form of atheltics. For the last few years the game has grown in favor until now, when it is on a par, and even sur- _ passes, football. The season of 1916 was looked forward to with great expectations, for the show- ing that the Nevada five made last year entitled them to a prominent place in coast basketball and according to the " dope " they should have lead the coast league. Several of the old men were back in the game. Capt. Henningsen, who was out of college for a semester, re- turned ready to take up his position as center. McCub- bin, who had been the mainstay of the team for the last four years, and Trabert, another man who has grown up with the Nevada five were both back in the game, and with these were several new men, with high school records behind them, anxious to prove their worth. We met most of our old enemies during the season, starting off with a victory over the Davis Farm team after a week of practice. The fol- lowing week two games were won from the local Y. M. C. A. five. These games gave the men a good work out, preparatory to the first league game. This was with the College of Pacific. Nevada outplayed her rival at every stage of the game and won by an overwhelming score. The team ' s trip to the coast during the last of February proved dis- astrous to her standing in the league . The men did not seem able to hit their stride and were defeated by the narrow margin of two points by U. C. The next night something was again wrong for St. Mary ' s won an overwhelming victory. However Nevada was able to " come back " when she met Stanford and doubled the score on her in a fast, clean game. The remainder of the games were played in the Gym. Santa Clara Capt. Henningson 153 MW MMfe£ came up with as strong a team as ever, but Nevada was back in her old time form and was too much for the coast men. Nevada ' s final game was with St. Ignatius, who proved an easy vic- tory. Winning these last two games left Nevada tied with U. C. for second place, each having lost two games. St. Mary ' s won first place, having lost only one game. Nevada ' s success was due in a large measure to the work of Coach Wentworth and to the steady game both Capt. Henningsen and McCubbin played during the entire season, for it was around these two veterans that the entire team was built. The men who played in the California game were: Capt. Henningsen, center; McCubbin, forward; MacKenzie, for- ward; Trabert, guard; Buckman, guard; Pennel and Cessna, substitutes. 1916 Varsity Squad 154 1915 RACK at Nevada is always looked upon in a very favorable light. Perhaps this is because the number of meets held on the Mackay Athletic Field are not sufficient to make one tire of the sport, or perhaps it is the lure of the struggle of man against man ; for in track the individual plays a more important part than in any sport where one team meets another. But whatever the reason, the season of 1915 bid well to be a most successful one. More than 40 men appeared for work and among these were many new men with high school records behind them. These new men combined with the men of the previous year, gave promise of a com- bination which would make a fast and well balanced team. Capt Ogilvie was back and in him we had a man well able to take care of the mile run, and with Hovey in the half, Rose and Hancock in the hurdles, Root in the sprints and broad jump and Kent in the two- mile run, Coach Glascock had a fine foundation upon which to build. In Hardin, an Alameda high school man, was the material for a fast sprinter and quarter man who would be hard to beat, besides he was doing well over twenty feet in the broad jump. Meyer, another California high school performer, had a quarter record behind him. These, together with Martin and Clifford of Reno, composed a group of Freshmen capable of making our rivals take notice. The early part of the season was devoted to working the stiffness out of the men and in short workouts. No one was required to do his entire distance, but from the showing made in the short trials everyone appeared to be living up to expectations. Capt. Ogilvie was in the hos- pital during the first of the season and seemed rather weak when he finally appeared in spikes, but this quickly wore off and he was soon in, his old time form. 155 «iSSiitt Mackay Day was the first Coach Glascock a very good line meet with the Davis Farm team between the Freshmen and the team proved too strong for the the narrow margin of 50 to 43, far behind, winning only 11 and real workout the men had, and it gave n the men in training for the approaching The Mackay Day class meet was a fight Juniors, but the well balanced Freshman upper classmen, the former winning by while the Seniors and Soph mores trailed 10 points respectively. 1915 Varsity Team On April 13th, Nevada met the Davis Farm on Mackay Field. The Farmers were outclassed at every stage of the meet, Nevada winning by the score of 93 1-2 to 28 1-2. Some very good time was made and things began to look very promising for the five cornered meet with St. Mary ' s, Santa Clara, Davis Farm and the California Freshmen at Berkeley on April 24th. After the Davis meet the coach kept the men hard at work, each man doing his distance twice a week, and each night showed marked improve- ment. Gentry, a freshman, was showing a great deal of form in the low 156 i L±j : Mtffl K hurdles, but unfortunately tripped and injured his knee which kept him off the track for the rest of the season. From this time until the latter part of April there was a constant light for several places on the team to represent Nevada at Berkeley. Several of the men were sure of their places, but the others still had to win theirs, with the result that everyone showed the best he had in him. The five cornered meet was a disappointment to Nevada for the Cali- fornia Freshmen easily carried off the honors, as they had a team made up of some of the best material on the coast. Several of their men were well known for their performances, so perhaps Nevada had less cause for dissappointment, but still the Nevada men seemed to loose their confidence and fell far short of what they were capable of doing. Melarky furnished the surprise of the day when he appeared from a place far in the rear and by a beautiful sprint, placed second in the mile run, close behind the winner. Nevada ' s real contest was with Santa Clara, but the latter were able to fill in places with strong men, where the California Freshmen were weak and thus Nevada only placed third. Those making the trip to Berkeley were: Capt. Ogilvie, Hardin, Root, Wolford, Meyer, Melarky, Chism, Hovey, Kent, Rose, Clifford, Mar- tin, Hancock, Watt, and Hill. Of these the following made their letter by winning a point in the meet: Melarky, Hill, Clifford, Kent, Root, and Hardin. IT. of N. Track Records EVENT HELD BY TIME 100 yard dash R.

There has always been a great deal of interest shown in the class games but now that Nevada is developing a large number of stars, the interest of the student body in the sport is becoming more and more pronounced. Unfortunately, the number of intercollegiate games was small last year, owing to the unusually shortened season and the lack of open dates on the part of possible opponents. Early in March some thirty men ap- peared on Mackay field for the first practice and under the able leader- ship of Captain Ted Bacon the team gradually rounded into shape. Nota- ble among the new men who early found places on the team were Young, Talmage and Holtham, the baseball artists from Modesto. After a series of practice games with the local nines, the intercollegiate season was opened on March 20, when Nevada clashed with the California Aggies from Davis. Davis Farm 0, Nevada 8. Nevada took the game in easy style. The infield worked smoothly and accepted the hardest changes with only one error as compared with the eight muffs made by Davis. Ferris pitched the first five innings, allow- ing two hits; Holtham finished the game, allowing two hits and striking out eight men. 17. C. Freshmen 2, Nevada 5. On March 28, Nevada walloped the California Freshmen by a 5-to-2 score. The game was not so fast as the Davis game and at times the 158 ■ -ARff ¥MfSf± play was slow, the Freshmen making five errors and Nevada three. Holtham and Capt. Bacon were the stars of the game. The team left on Friday, April 2, for Modesto, where they were to play the Modesto Reds, but rain prevented the game and the team was forced to lay over for two days before playing the California Varsity at Berkeley on April 5. U. C. 5, Nevada 2. Our defeat at the hands of California is accounted for by our loose playing, seven errors being made by Nevada. Holtham pitched a good game, allowing only two hits, and making one of Nevada ' s three hits. Clarke made the other two hits, scoring from one and tallying Sheehy with the other. Bacon, in center field, gathered in five flies without an error. The team that lined up against California was : Catcher, Talmage ; pitchers, Holtham and Ferris; first base, Abbot; second base, Moore; short stop, Sheehy ; third base, Young ; left field, Fake ; center field, Capt. Bacon ; right field, Clarke. Taking everything into consideration, the season was very successful since two out of the three games played was chalked up to the credit of the Blue and White. 159 INTERCLASS basketball which has been substituted for Intercollegiate basketball this year started with a rush January 10th. Twenty-one girls reported for practice under the efficient coaching of Miss Mack. The girls have been practic- ing twice a week and the different class teams are round- ing into shape for the interclass finals. The winning team will have their class numerals engraved on the silver loving cup now being displayed in the library. The present senior class has enjoyed this honor for the last two years but are out of the running this year, as their interest has gradually subsided until now there is but one basketball enthusiast in the senior class. Although the Junior and Sophmore teams are made up of girls older in the game, yet the members of the Freshman team are showing up like veterans and ought to give the others a close race for first place. The girls are not only prac- ticing in the Gym, but are using the outside court whenever the weather permits. Frequently one of the class teams ventures down to Reno High and plays against Miss Mack ' s team there. Next year the girls are planning on making tennis their major sport. The outdoor basketball court will probably be converted into another tennis court, with the addition of two new courts north of the present ones. Tennis will then be intercollegiate and Nevada will probably send a team to Southern California and also " down around the bay. " HP Elsie Humphreys 160 Wrestling SEVERAL attempts to make wrest- ling a minor sport at Nevada has been made, but it was not until Coach Glascock started his wrestling- class in January, 1915, at the local Y. M. C. A., that it was recognized as such. The class, which consisted of some ten men, worked diligently learning the various holds and breaks of the game and their success was so great that it was decided to send a representative from Nevada to the P. A. A. tournament in San Fran- cisco on March 25. After several tryouts, Howard Browne, a 115- pound man, was selected to make the trip and it is well that he was, for " Brownie " sure put Nevada on the map of wrestling fame. In the trials, Browne was matched against Gonenberger, whom he threw in 2 minutes and 50 seconds. In the finals, he threw De Chene of U. C. in 3 minutes and 15 seconds, thus winning the P. A. A. championship of the 115-pound class. In the A. A. U. tournament, " Brownie " was wrestling in the 108- pound class and did not fare so well. He was thrown, after wrestling for 7 minutes, by Benson of the Swedish-American Athletic Club, Brook- lyn, New York, who in turn wrestled the A. A. U. champion for 20 minutes before being defeated.. This year the wrestling class are working to send a man to the next P. A. A. tournament, where they intend to again distinguish themselves. Howard Browne 161 5«i «! ft Afetim roM Tennis F ALL the minor sports, tennis is, I believe, unparalleled. This seems to be true because from the very start, all thoroughly enjoy the game. The beginner, waving his racquet wildly in the air, feels a thrill of pleasure as he makes a well placed stroke. The seasoned players find no less joy in sending the ball skimming over the net as a curved under-hand drive. The tennis spirit at Nevada is growing rapidly. In fact the two courts will not accommodate all the players. The regents furnished the material for these courts two years ago and the boys did the work. At the present time there is petition being sent to the regents and it is hoped by this means to acquire two more. Last year Lyster Withers and Moorman Parks represented Nevada in tennis and although defeated by the U. C. Freshman, score 4-6, 5-7, and 3-7, the game showed that the spirit of Nevada was there. Several tournaments have been held this year and at present plans are being formed for one that is expected to prove very interesting. 162 ' W4W ;A fe1l:S i fMi iA: Block " N " Men FOOTBALL Chester Paterson, ' 16 Lloyd McCubbin, ' 16 Frank Fake, ' 16 Edward North, ' 16 Basil Crowley, ' 17 Bourke Healy, ' 16 William Stickney, ' 17 Lloyd Root, ' 16 Joe Hill, ' 18 Francis Martin, ' 18 Andy Hardin, ' 18 John Kniffen, ' 16 William Pennel, ' 16 Archie Trabert, ' 16 Chester Barton, ' 16 Ceorge Henningsen, ' 16 Henry Lintott, ' 18 Carl Stever, ' 18 Lyle Kimmel, ' 18 Walter Hawkins, ' 19 Bob Donovan, ' 18 Fay Baker, ' 17 Chester Greenwood, ' 18 Jens Jensen, ' 19 BASKETBALL Waterfield Painter, ' 16 Donald Stewart, ' 18 Harry Hovey, ' 16 Gardner Chism, ' 17 William Powers, ' 16 TRACK BASEBALL Linford Riley, ' 16 Harry Moore, ' 17 Arthur MacKenzie, ' 19 Thomas Buckman, ' 19 William Melarkey, ' 17 Louie Meyer, ' 18 Oscar Clifford, ' 18 Wilson Malone, ' 17 Earl Holtham, ' 18 Ted Bacon, ' 16 3 63 MiaiA Phi Kappa Phi Nevada Chapter, Established May 4, 1912.

Gooding, Secretary-Treasurei Glenn Engle, Mayor. ' HE good old days when Prof. Brown was supreme in the Hall are now only cherished memories to a few of us who lived there during that time. The whole Hall and each fellow individ- ually was Prof. ' s charge. Many were the times when Prof, was forced to quell a near-riot in some fellow ' s room, but after sending the men to their various rooms, he would go away smiling, for he always saw the sunny side of things. After Prof. Brown ' s regime, came Scott Jamison , and with his arrival the order of things changed in the Hall. An association was formed and Scott entered into the affairs of the Hall as one of the fellows and before he left he was respected and honored fully as much as Prof. Brown. Now Lincoln Hall is a little republic in itself. The men are organ- ized under the name of the Lincoln Hall Association, with a constitution and by-laws. The officers, mayor and secretary-treasurer, are elected annually at the close of the second semester and are chosen from the junior and senior classes. The affairs of the Hall are conducted by com- mittees appointed by the mayor. Prof. Turner, now master of the Hall, is an able adviser at all our meetings and does all in his power to make the Hall comfortable and home-like for the men living there. Charles Gooding Glen Engle 183 M WW The men have started the plan of cutting their names on the table top in the reading room, so that they may leave a record behind them. A heavy cover of soft pine has been made for the reading room table, and on this cover each man has a space assigned him in which he is to carve bis name. When the names are carved the cover will be inlaid and pol- ished so that the names will not be destroyed. Among the social functions of the Hall is the annual entertainment of the girls from Manzanita Hall. This generally consists of an open house, followed by a dance in the gym, with a feed to end the affair. Another time when the Hall enjoys itself is on the stunt night. On this night all the new members have the privilege of entertaining the old men before they sign the Lincoln Hall book. On the whole Lincoln Hall is rather an enjoyable place to live when you consider the disadvantages one has to undergo when knocking about the world. LINCOLN HALL Dave Able Glenn Engle W. 0.

Vivian Engle — Vice-President. Frances Heidenreich — Secretary. THE girl ' s dormitory has this year been the college home of sixty-one congenial enterprising young women students. Under the able guidance of Miss Louise Fargo Brown, the new dean of women, the hall, as a body, has been able to establish itself as a very influential factor on the campus. This year the residents organized into the Associ- ated Women Students of Manzanita Hall, and adopted a constitution which in addition to clearing defining the rules of the house, vested the governing power in a house council. This council, composed of house president, vice-president, and secretary, all the upper classwomen living in the hall, two representa- tives of the Sophmore class, and one of the Freshmen class, having the power to establish new house rules when necessary, and to see that all established rules are obeyed, meet regularly to punish ofFnders and dis- cuss problems in house government which arise from time to time. The girls as a whole meet once a month when all matters pertaining to the hall are laid before the body, discussed, and voted upon. Distinct from this organization are the house committees which direct certain phases of house management. The committees and their chair- man are: Fire, Magdalena Bertschy; laundry, Edith Taylor; order, Elsie Farrer; telephone and door bell, Frances Heidenreich; cleaning, Edith Harris ; general utility, Jo Damm. In addition to the chairman, each corn- Ethel Winger 187 S3 ■ ' ■,; mm. ARTM fMMfote mittee consists of two members who assist the chairman in making her particular phase of house management, orderly and systematic. The old L. F. G. so long connected with Manzanita Hall has not been suspended by this new organization, but where it was formerly both a social and governmental organization, its function is now purely social. This year, in addition to the L. F. G. initiation for Hall girls only, Man- zanita Hall entertained all the University women at a Hallowe ' en party and gave a series of Sunday evening musicales to which the men of the University were invited. Also Miss Brown has regular " at homes " the first and third Thursday of every month, to which all University and town women are invited. The spirit of Manzanita Hall seems to grow as its numbers increase, and as even more girls are expected next year, much can be expected of this large per cent of the University women.

Brow and Rufus went to ' Frisco. That city looked so much larger than Elko that they decided to call up a mutual friend to pilot them around. This friend told them to come right up to the hotel and make themselves at home in his room until he returned, as he would be out when they arrived. After staring at the tall buildings until their necks ached, these boys REINFORCEMENTS ENROUTE " 1fr Y£ BRAVE SOPH SENPINC VV7 ?£ -E " 5S CALL FOR RE NFORCE t4£NTS. zVise ' 1 HONORABLE WROSH rfiKIHG- Wf TBR ¥ CURE ywiixiuj. CAUSE. EFFECT. CURE betook themselves to the hotel, asked for key 1803, were shown to the room and began making themselves at home. The smoke of the snow sheds still clung to them, so they decided to use the funny looking bath tub (one like they had never seen before). After experimenting with the pretty fixtures of said tub for a length of time they got the water turned on. While they were disrobing a noise ' in the street attracted their attention and while deeply absorbed in a moving electric sign across the street, the tub ran over and they were ' brought to their senses by the gurgle of water as it flowed across the room. Rufus went in search of towels to clean up the mess. The top bureau drawer yielded nothing but hairpins and beauty spots. Vaguely fearful, 201 mt?j ?: m m frmm® he opened the next drawer, and before his astonished gaze lay layers of fluffy things no man would ever wear. Meanwhile Brow had explored the clothes closet and came back with the astounding information that no man could wear the things therein contained. Blushing deeply, they pondered on what to do. Here they were far from home in a strange and cruel city and no telling when the owner of the room would return. The speed with which they jumped into their clothes and got out of that trap has never been equaled. After getting a safe distance away from the room of their discom- fort, they examined their key and found they had been in room 803. Now if you don ' t think that this is a true story and that a " teen " makes a big difference, ask these boys, if you can find them. SPECIAL BOOKLETS ON SPECIAL SUBJECTS.

Places and Chaperonage. — All parties are to be held at the gym, and are to omit chaperones (for they are considered nuisances on all occa- sions). Time. — These dances are to be held on any night, preferably on school nights, in fact on any night that is convenient. There have been a few suggestions that examination periods would be a most desirable time to hold these, as a little recreation is needed at this time to serve as a rest between " crams. " Hours. — All parties must never close before 2:30 A. M., and if the student participants have eight o ' clocks, the dances may be held later, so as to give them ample time to get to their classes. This rule is submitted because it would obviate tardiness due to oversleeping. The Expenses. — This is a mere detail, and hence does not bear much U. of N. Movies 210 .:r;.;,::..jy ra i K [iaiA:: weight. One can not spend too much on parties, as we believe them to be a splendid form of amusement. Taxicabs. — There shall be a special form af taxi that shall be official. The committee has been influenced into this opinion because we recog- nize the true philanthropic spirit of Henry Ford. Flowers. — This is the last rule, but the one to be most closely ad- hered to. All flowers worn must be of the domestic variety and must have been grown in hot houses, as wild flowers at this time are especially dangerous on account of the prevalence of mad coyotes and other wild things. THIS CAUTION MUST BE TAKEN. Nipped in the " Bud " Willie P.

In the last few months a surprising number of new organizations have come into our midst. All are in thriving condition, and although none are of sufficient age or prestige to be granted much space, we gladly mention their existence, together with their presiding officers. Th Vampire Club; President, The Goof. T. G. C. ; President, Dow ; Vice-President, Boiley ; Treasurers, Squeak- Olie. The Rising Dramatic Society; President, lb. The Harem; Sultan, Bob; President, Lola. 217 TWENTY IRON MEN. Said Little Joe, " I like to go Where I can see the Janes. In Salt Lake City, where girls are pretty, I should worry about missing the trains. " Said gentle Lyle, " I like to smile At the Mormon girls so fair And you may know, if trains must go, I simply won ' t be there. " The train came in ; it was a sin. The train went out again. And the Mormon ' s smile cost Joe and Lyle Just twenty iron men. Youngster of ' 19 — Do you know why Sophs are like Mohammodans? Wise Fool of ' 18 — No, Frosh. Frosh — Because they make daily pilgrimages to the " Mecca. " Note (with flowers to McQuiston on night of Leap Year dance) — " I am sending these to you with the hope that by wearing them you will be made more beautiful than God ever made you. " — Dot M. 218 If I © ' MISIA AT MANZANITA Breathes there a man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said " Blankety, blankety, blank, blank, blank? " As he leaned on the Manzanita bell, And begged some kind friend to tell Why his presence was so calmly ig nored When he knew very well that his " only adored " Was within those portals tearing her hair Wildly, frantically, wondering where In the wide, wide world her swain might be! " Has he kicked the traces and forsaken me? " Must he suffer out there in his painful plight, And his hair grow white in a single night? Ah, no, here the guardian angel comes, Shows him in where the parlor hums With the angry mutterings of waiting men, And he pitifully cries, " Must I camp again? " Finally, the last fond hope seems gone, And " ye Gods, " quoth he, " must I wait till dawn! " When lo, in the door his lady appears, Calms with a smile his horrid fears. AMBITIONS I do not ask to be as rich As Croesus, or to have such power As Bonaparte once claimed, and which Was taken from him in an hour. My wish is simply this — no more — To have such wisdom and such merits As yonder strutting sophomore Is satisfied that he inherits. S. E. K. 220 ]M!MBMMl k TO U. OF NEVADA. The appearance of this suue of the Artemisia is due largely to the support of the advertising men of Reno. If you have been amused or have had any sentiments of pleasure aroused in looking through it, please bear in mind that it has been made possible by the support of these men. In this Artemisia we have incorporated the advertising section into the joshes, knowing that the readers would look to this section for amuse- ment, and we want you to become just as interested in the advertisements. These ads represent the investment of men interested in the welfare of the University, and in return it is the duty of every one connected with the college to reciprocate by patronizing their business whenever pos- sible. Patronize them and keep their spirits aroused. When you buy from them let them know that you saw the interest that they had in the University, that you read their ad in the 1917 Artemisia and that you will look for another in the next Artemisia. You will find the remaining part of this book worth while. Read on. Copies of the 1917 Artemisia can be secured from Arthur J. Hood, Manager, 55 Mill Street, Reno, Nevada. $3.00 postpaid. 221 •j msMmmi OH! THAT GLEE CLUB.

Kemper — I have with my usual self sacrifice laid aside my accustomed timidness and will, contrary to my nature, intrust my judgment to you. As I remarked, I have laboriously prepared for the benefit of this body, several ideas (prolonged applause), and I am now ready to present to them the results of my wild nights of thinking. When the honorable President of this class appointed me to fill the important mission of col- lecting the Junior assess- ment I appreciated the honor and decided to fulfill the duties to the best of my ability. I have since found that the duties are more than one person can accomplish and I have taken the liberty to make a few appointments to act as my assistants. I have appointed Dorothy Mahan and Elsie Farrer, and Dot Morrison appointed her- self. As nothing but gasps could be obtained from the class after this strik- ing speech, the meeting was adjourned indefin- itely.

For the most part they are confined to men. A sorority is a female fraternity. Fraternities are called frats. Frat coming from the Latin word frater meaning: " We ' ll all drink together. " The same lan- guage is responsible for sorority and means " Do others before you are yourself done. " To conceal the real pur- pose of a fraternity meetings are held. Many hea ted arguments occur. The members decide Lincoln Hall Board whether of not they are going to pay their bills. A man who belongs to a fraternity is called a frat man. Sometimes be is called other names which do not appear well in print. Frats have members, blackballs, and dances. Members to pay dues, blackballs for freshmen and dances for sororities. Frats have initiations which closely resemble the reign of terror. The Barbs are content with a less hardy inquisition. How- ever, no one minds these except the freshmen and co-eds. The aim of a fraternity man is to get money from father. Frat men wear little gold pins over their hearts. Manzanita Bulletin Board Q= --B A Standard A of S ervice Reno Power, Light Water Co.
