THE FORWARD LOOK " T ' is the sunset of life gives me mystical lore, And coming events cast their shadoivs be fore. " CAMPBELL ' S lines have always had for me a fascination that I would not change if I could. If these be true, then the following quotation from Tennyson show the spirit of the age : " Through the ages one increasing purpose runs, And the nations do but broaden with the process of the suns. " When the writer first saw the University it had but one building, now known as Morrill Hall. It was the old-fashioned structure, high ceilinged and mansard roofed, that was deemed peculiarly fitted for a college acces- sory. You will see the same style in far-off Maine. It is perhaps well that students are active young athletes so that they can climb the steep stair- ways to third stories, and so use the illy adapted structure. It is unfor- tunate that a careful study of the architecture of college buildings has not yet been made. The public school buildings are receiving needed attention in this respect and there are many splendid examples of what school buildings should be. The coming of the gracefully efficient Mackay building promised a complete change in the building plans of the Nevada institution, and the suggested plans for the future expansion of the campus group of buildings, mark a welcomed change. This beautiful building has been and ever will be an incentive for better architecture and for more efficiently arranged buildings for University work. The student who passes through the portals of the Mackay School of Mines receives an inspiration that means better work, and more respect for things educational. Other buildings may be useful, but if they are dingy and ugly, they do not appeal to young or old. The casual visitor to the University gets his first impression from the older buildings that occupy the front positions, and he is not impressed, but when he gains the first sight of the beautiful lawns in front of the Mackay building, he changes his mind and thinks the effort worth while. When in the rear of all the structures he gets a glimpse of the Mackay athletic field and building, he is sure the last shall be first in his remem- brance of the University. It is almost impossible to rebuild or reform the older buildings on the campus, because they serve their purpose in sufficient degree to warrant thirteen their retention; but the more good buildings erected the sorrier the old ones look, and the sooner they will fade away. The general appearance of the old buildings could be tolerated if they served their purpose well. Four walls and a ceiling do not make a school room, for these may be accom- panied by bad lighting and poor appointments for the particular work to be done. The general plan that has been suggested for the University of the future calls for a large administration building in the foreground over- looking the Truckee valley and the magnifient mountains in the distance. Its enduring stone pillars will give it the appearance of permanence and solid worth. In this building will be housed the administration offices, the library, and many class rooms, all adapted and contrived for efficient instruction for the young people who will come in increasing numbers as the years roll on. I see in these class rooms all the apparatus that can be used to make clear the principles of art and science, and I can see rooms specially arranged for moving picture demonstrations of useful and inter- esting subjects so that the lectures and demonstrations used by the leaders in educational work may be heard in many classrooms outside of their own particular ones. Then too, I see on each side of the administration building two grace- ful buildings devoted to university work, adding their individual im- pressiveness to the scene, and promising an opportunity to every Freshman that may come. Somewhere on the grounds I see a building devoted to physical culture for young women, and containing a magnificent swimming pool and proper appointments for athletic work and for all work that may come under this head. In this building I can see a fine auditorium for the meetings of the young women, and also study rooms and rest rooms. In this building also would be rooms that the graduates might call their own and where they might meet the co-eds who are still in the University and tell of their experiences as co-eds in the long ago. Of course I must see the same thing for the young men of the future, because it makes life a little more pleasant and work a little better, and gives the older student a better opportunity to give sound advice to the younger students. And above all that it makes the real life of the Uni- versity. One part of the education the students get is from the professors and the books ; but the most impressive parts comes from their experience in dealing with one another. The first chemistry classroom and laboratory, provided for the teach- ing of the new science in this country, was put forty feet underground so fourteen as to guard against explosions that might disturb quietude of the campus. This was the wisdom the governing board of Harvard manifested in a practical way to start Professor Stillman in a great subject. Perhaps they thought it was a deep subject, and again they may have been unwilling to take the uncanny manipulations too fa r away from their natural home. From the standpoint of the future we have put our cellar above ground just for convenience, and have not made much improvement in the appoint- ments. The laboratory that I see in the future chemistry building is a real working laboratory and so arranged that it is kept pleasant and com- fortable. The only criticism of the present building that I have to make is like Gen. Wm. T. Sherman ' s criticism of the Pension Office building in Washington. When Gen. Raum, its architect, showed the marching worrior through the new structure Sherman looked at all the parts of it very solemnly, and when asked his opinion he turned to Raum and said, " Raum, the only criticism I have to make is that the thing is fireproof. " Each generation builds as best it can, but the discoveries and inven- tions of the day show the shortcomings of the methods and contrivances of the past. Very often not enough study is given to the plans to get the best out of them. Travel and diligent hunting for information from those who have done and are doing things, reveal the light that should guide the work. The man who sits down and tries to build his business according to the advice of the local wiseacres, finds that he has no building material equal to that found in the great centers where things are done, and where men reside who are equal to the tasks set. Somewhere in the north is a cottage set on a brown and barren moun- tain side, and every time I see it, it seems to call for green lawns and flowers and trees, for it is that kind of a cottage. Fine buildings without green lawns and shrubbery do not carry out the impression intended. So, to carry out my dreams of the University of the future, I see the grounds of the southwest corner of the campus extended all over the grounds till " every prospect pleases. " The student who spends four years on such a campus simply cannot be content with a house that has not trees and lawns around it, and so the education brings with it a train of things that make life worth living. In countries where there is plenty of rain, and where the grass and trees grow without special care, they are blessings in dis- guise, because people do not know how to appreciate them ; but in a country where water is scarce, and grass and trees hard to grow, they are blessings undisguised. Nevada ' s great hope lies in the young people, for they are the builders of the future. The better they are trained, the better they will build, and fifteen the richer in all senses will Nevada be. If you want the results you will have to pay the price. If the children get the goods, they will deliver the results, and the parents know this. Each generation will demand more of the University and get more. Changes come slowly because a slow public must be convinced, but come they must. Intelligent direction by the wise men of the time will accomplish much, and it is hoped that the united will- power of the alumni of the University will be aimed at the accomplishment of the things that go to make the greater University of the future. George Bancroft, in his memorial to Abraham Lincoln, had this to say : " That God rules in the affairs of men is as certain as any truth of physical science. On the great moving power which is from the beginning, hangs the world of the senses and the world of thought and action. E ternal wis- dom marshals the great procession of the nations, working in patient con- tinuity through the ages, never halting and never abrupt, encompassing all events in its oversight and ever effecting its will though mortals may oppose in madness, or slumber in apathy. Sometimes like a messenger through the thick darkness of night, it steps along mysterious ways, but when the hour strikes for a people or for mankind to pass into a new form of being, unseen hands draw the bolts from the gates of futurity ; an all- subduing influence prepares the minds of men for the coming revolution ; those who plan resistance find themselves in conflict with the will of Provi- dence rather than with human devices ; and all hearts and all understand- ings, most of all the opinions and influences of the unwilling, are wonder- fully attracted and compelled to bear forward the change which becomes more an obedience to the law of universal nature, than submission to the arbitrament of man. " The time has come to follow definite plans in placing proper buildings on the University campus, and to harmonize the setting so as to get a unified result. The writer was once called upon to say a few words when the Washoe County court house was remodeled, and, viewing the new work in the front and the old building in the rear, said that he did not approve of having Queen Anne architecture in the foreground and Mary Ann architecture in the rear. In the University plan as used in the past, we have reversed this order, but in the end the queenly structures are bound to prevail. The temporary need of the present should not be the per- manent blot of all time. This is not said in a spirit of malice, for it is easy to criticise where no gray matter is needed, but it is meant as record of advancement. We begin in humbleness and advance by struggles. Our best endeavors will not meet the needs of the future, and we should make special efforts to lead in the right direction. Those who were concerned sixteen with the erection of the present structures, did the very best they could under the conditions to be met, and much of their work will stand the test of time. They paved the way amid opposition, and they gained in the race. The coming of better buildings has been a little too much by way of con- trast for the older buildings, but the fight is won by steps. The new day will bring better things if the fight is steady and for a definite purpose. In this betterment the useful and the efficient features must be con- served, but the sincere beauty of the architectural side must ever be put forward. On the grounds the expert in landscape gardening must have his way if we are to have a harmonious setting for the buildings. Buildings need not be costly but they should certainly be tasteful in design. eighteen THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE |l[|{|||||1||||||{||||l|{l!l![||{|[INllll[ll!IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1lll|[[1llll!Nlllll[lllllllinill![[llllll[ll!lll[[ll1lll THE College of Agriculture of the University of Nevada is located in the Truckee Valley, one of the richest agricultural districts of Nevada. Its situation is unsurpassed for the observation and study of all phases of practical agriculture, such as irrigation, farm methods and practice, field crops, truck farming, fruit growing, dairying, livestock breeding and management. The people of Nevada fully realize that the future of the State depends largely upon the development of its agricultural resources. The large majority of our agricultural students are going back to the home in Nevada to build up these resources and increase the efficiency in farm practice and household management. With the rapid increase in regis- tration in the College of Agriculture in the past eight years the State has felt the great need for a well equipped Agricultural Building for the proper housing of the various branches of instruction. During the last session of the State Legislature the issuance of bonds for $80,000 was authorized for establishing an educational home for the College of Agriculture. This building will provide for more and better training in all phases of agricultural practice and household management, and will be a great incentive in creating a much stronger sentiment among the boys and girls of the rural districts for higher education in agriculture. In order for the College of Agriculture to give greatest service to the State it is very essential that the theory and science of agriculture taught in the class room and laboratory be supplemented by proper application of those theories on a suitable agricultural farm. At the recent session of the State Legislature the issuance of bonds for $43,000 was authorized for the purchase of a University Farm of over 200 acres which is located about three miles south of Reno on the Virginia Road. The University of Nevada is very grateful to the farmers and ranchers of the State for their sincere interest and cooperation in the establishment of the University Farm. The University Farm will serve as a field laboratory for demonstra- tions in methods of crop production, irrigation and drainage practices, successful farm management, livestock judging and management. It will also furnish to the livestock owners of the State breeding animals of the highest type for the development of their herds and flocks. The University Farm is now stocked with 212 animals of the different breeds valued at $20,740.00. In the agricultural districts of Nevada where intensive farming is largely practiced, dairying has become one of the mcst important types of farming, not only by increasing the profits of the farm, but also in keeping the soil in a high state of fertility. During the past year the College of Agriculture has greatly enlarged the dairy herd with the following pur- poses in view : To operate the dairy on a more economic basis ; to increase the efficiency of instructional work in dairying; to increase the value of demonstrations on the feeding, breeding and general management of dairy stock; and to furnish the dairy products used at the University Dining Hall. cJL . j , di Propof- ' cd Asrioultural Building twenty iiiiiliiiiiiiiiiliiiiiiiiaiiiiiiniii ' iaiirJiiiiiiNiiliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiliiaiiiilliiiiminiliiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING ACCORDING to an eminent engineering authority, the functions of the mechanical and electrical engineer may be divided into two J j general divisions: first, the designing of the machinery and tools of industry; and second, the operation of that machinery and those tools, including administration of the operating organization. In the past, technical schools have usually considered that their province was to impart knowledge to be used primarily in designing, and their courses were shaped accordingly. However, the engineering world is rapidly coming to a realization of the fact, that regardless of how well a machine was designed its final economic value depended upon its efficiency of operation. Knowledge and efficiency in the field of design does not necessarily imply an equal knowledge and efficiency in the field of operation. In devoting their energies to the study of the laws of materials and forces and the methods of applying them to practical problems, the technical schools have almost entirely disregarded the human or psychological element which is so essential for the successful utilization of machinery in industrial practice. During the past few years the courses of study in the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of the University of Nevada have been gradually modified to make provision for imparting this latter knowl- edge which is becoming recognized as necessary for the highest success of the technical graduate and for the best welfare of the State and country. In other words, less time is being devoted to technical speciali- zation and an increased effort is being made to develop character, judg- ment, eflSciency, and executive ability. For advanced students courses in Industrial Organization and Man- agement and Commercial Engineering are being oflTered and connections are being established with various engineering works whereby proper laboratory facilities can be obtained. In line with the modifications which are being made in the various courses, it is the policy of the department to urge that the technical requirements for entrance to the Engineering College be lowered rather than raised, that preparatory schools be encouraged to give more attention to teaching good English, and that applicants for admission as special students be judged as to their initiative, practical preparation, and general make-up, rather than on any hard and fast age limit or scholastic require- ments. twenty-one During the next year it is planned to add newly developed machinery to the mechanical and electrical laboratories in accordance with the estab- lished custom. The Electrical Engineering department now has under construction a 2 kilowatt, 500 cycle radio-telegraph set of latest and most improved design. It will have a maximum sending radius of app roximately two thousand miles. Power will be derived from a generating apparatus just manufactured for the University by the leading builder of this type of machinery. The switchboard, starting panels, power transformers and condensers are being built in the University shops and an overhead phosphor bronze aerial will soon be erected near the Mechanical building. Arrangements are being made for communication with the high schools at Tonopah and other points and with a number of electric power gen- erating plants. In the Mechanical Laboratory, in addition to the regularly scheduled laboratory courses, it is planned to conduct a number of experiments on crude oil engine pumping equipments, in cooperation with the State Engi- neer ' s office and the U. S. Bureau of Irrigation Investigations. A bill introduced by Senator Newlands is now pending in Congress which aims to create a system of engineering experiment stations in the Land Grant Colleges of the country. If the measure is passed, the exper- imental work of the Engineering College of the University of Nevada will be greatly expanded. X --- k Wo .-.

This is due in part to its location in the Silver State where mining is a paramount industry, in part to the fine equipment presented to the school by Mrs. Marie Louise Mackay and Mr. Clarence H. Mackay, and in part to the high character of the instruction imparted. On June 10, 1908, the Mackay Schools of Mines was dedicated, and the Departments of Mining, Metallurgy, Geology, and Mineralogy, took possession of their new quarters. The building is a beautiful one — the design of Stanford White — and contains fine offices and class rooms, a spacious museum, and well-equipped metallurgical, assay, chemical, geo- logical and mineralogical laboratories. During the past year important additions in the form of gifts have been made to the collections in the Museum and to the equipment of the metallurgical laboratory. A new course in mining has just been introduced at the Mackay School of Mines. This course was prepared after a thorough study of the mining courses given in different American mining schools and a thorough con- sideration of the requisites of the Nevada mining industry, and is believed to be as good an undergraduate course in metal mining as can be obtained anywhere. The main changes which have been introduced are: An increase in the number of hours from 18 to 21 in the Junior and Senior years, a rearrangement of the subject s taught in such a manner that ele- mentary mining instruction may begin in the Freshman year, an enlarge- ment of the courses in Mining, Metallurgy, and Geology, and the addition of courses in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering wanting in the old curriculum. Thus the present course is a much stronger one than was formerly given and has the further advantage of bringing the students of the Mackay School of Mines into direct relation with the director of the school in their Freshman year, instead of in their Junior year as here- tofore. While the instruction of young men in mining and allied subjects is the principal work of the Mackay School of Mines, it carries on numerous other activities for the purpose of developing the mining industry of the State. Numerous letters are written and bi-weekly press bulletins are twenty-three published g iving information on mining matters. A State Mining Labora- tory determines the value of samples from Nevada submitted to it by citizens of the State, and a short course for prospectors gives assistance and instruction to those who are interested in prospecting. Secondary mining schools at Virginia City and at Tonopah are under the supervision of the Director of the Mackay School of Mines. Thus the Mackay School of Mines is making every effort to assist the development of the mining industry of Nevada. rc d{ U i A l cort " Mackay School of Mines twenty-four Jl:l ll»lllllllllllllllllllllllllllnlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll THE SCHOOL OF CIVIL ENGINEERING !!! " lE!1155 " " !!lll!i " l!)™:™;:;:™™l " SI!!Ei " iEil!ll!!;!!S IN the early days of this republic there were no engineering colleges and engineering as then practiced was learned by the apprentice system, young men either paying for the privilege of working with older, experienced engineers, or giving their services for a time in return for the information and experience acquired through association with the practical engineer in actual work. In those days the field of engi- neering work was very narrow as compared with the present. The under- lying principles were not well or completely formulated in shape for pre- sentation in schools or colleges. Surveying was taught along with mathe- matics and physics, then more commonly called natural philosophy, and many of the early engineers had the benefit of college educations including the above subjects. As time progressed principles were developed and information accumulated until it became easier and more economical to teach the fundamentals of engineering in technical schools and colleges than by the earlier methods. The abundance of information today available on engineering sub- jects, not merely in the whole field but in every one of the separate branches of engineering and even in the separate specialties of each branch, makes it a difficult matter to select what is considered best to include in the cur- riculum for a given branch of engineering. There is no question but what every successful engineer spends a great deal of time in thought and study along the lines in which he becomes successful, after he leaves college. For the engineer who works into the lines of management and administration, that " post graduate " practical study will finally drift away from technical details and will broaden out and at the same time concentrate on the special field of his work. But the majority of engineers are actually engaged for most of their working lives or at least for the first ten or twenty years after leaving college, in strictly engineering work. If they become skillful and efficient during these years of technical work it will be because they realize that college days should not and do not end their study period. Some technical subjects can be studied better and more thoroughly in connection with practical work than in college. Some other subjects are much more easily mastered, at least in the early stages, in college with the assistance of the instructors and laboratory facilities. twenty-five The writer ' s conception of the aims and duties of an engineering col- lege include the following : To be of the most possible real assistance to the students in college; to help them to suitable employment for which they are fitted, whenever this is possible; to help alumni solve their prob- lems when they come or write for assistance and to encourage them to come to their alma mater, for assistance and to render assistance, or impart valuable information to their alma mater and to its instructors. Many of the alumni go deeper into their special lines of work in practice than their college professors have time or opportunity to do. Gen- erally the latter welcome valuable and up-to-date information from their former students as they do from any other source, and are apt to give it special attention. In line with the first of the aims mentioned, the School of Civil Engi- neering endeavors to lay particular stress on those subjects and those phases of subjects which are difficult of mastery without the aid of college instruction and facilities. This will account for the stress laid on the solution of varied problems and on systematic methods of making com- putations, in such subjects as surveying and hydraulics. The department expects to have an additional instructor next year, who will very likely teach the drafting courses and most of the subjects in the line of structural engineering. These days are witnessing rapid development in highway building and in municipal betterment wi th increasing recognition of the engineer as the proper man to place in charge of both. A good general course in civil engineering is probably the best kind of preliminary training for both of these lines of work. The department, by means of assigned readings and discussions, tries to emphasize the need of the engineer keeping abreast of the times by reading and studying economic and civic problems and preparing to help solve them, not only in his capacity as an engineer but as a good citizen. The next few years will probably see marked development of under- ground water supplies in Nevada and civil engineers will have some part in that development. Civil engineering work has not been of much promise for a number of years but the outlook for the future seems bright. , : rlfr1fcv-3z twenty-six ii[iiiiitiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii;[i[iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiuiiii THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCE niiiiiiiiiiiniiii[[iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!i:iiiiii!iiniiiiiiiiNiii|iiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiii|m PROBLEM now confronting the College of Arts and Science, and one in which its students should be interested, is the proper housing of its departments. In relative registration, including the Normal School, the college has increased in recent years until at present it has about sixty per cent of all the students in the Uni- versity. Furthermore, it provides a large portion of the instruction given students registered in Engineering and Agriculture. Including only courses recognized as belonging primarily to Arts and Science, this college gives from 48 to 73 per cent of the curriculum in Home Economics, from 18 to 39 per cent of the curriculum in the School of Agriculture, from 42 to 46 per cent of the curriculum in the Mackay School of Mines, from 30 to 42 per cent of the curriculum in the School of Mechanical and Elec- trical Engineering, and from 30 to 45 per cent of the curriculum in the School of Civil Engineering. In each of these schools the range in per- centage depends upon the manner in which the students choose their free electives. In view of these figures and of the greater registration of the College of Arts and Science, it is probable that this college provides at least three-fourths of all the instruction given in the University. Any inadequacy in the housing and facilities of its departments can have only one effect upon its students, an effect only less unfortunate in the case of students who have or are soon to have adequate facilities in their own colleges. The problem, therefore, touches not only Arts and Science, but the entire University. Students in technical engineering courses are already well provided for, and within a few months this will be true also of students in technical agriculture. The time has now come when the needs of students in Arts, Science, including the Normal School, must be considered. Certain of the laboratories are already overcrowded. Through readjustment of the schedule of hours, it will likely be possible to distribute laboratory work over the day, thus affording closer supervision and accommodating a larger number of students. Ultimately, however, each of the great laboratory departments. Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, should have exclusive control of a building suited to its purposes. Most inadequate at present is the housing of the lecture departments in Arts and Science, nearly all the work in the languages, in History, Economics, and Political Science, in Mathematics, and in Education, being twenty-seven seriously hampered for want of proper room and facilities. In a number of instances a lecture room is used by several instructors, a condition which, in the want of office room for many of the faculty, makes it im- possible oftentimes for students to find them for advice and conference. Arts and Science has no building which it can claim exclusively as its own. It has expanded in the past by occupying quarters vacated by departments in other colleges. Its preponderance in numbers and the fundamental nature of its work prompt the hope that its needs will now gain precedence, and that either through private benefaction or public appropriations it will be given buildings with suitable facilities.

No other function of the University is more important than that of preparing teachers for the public service. The number of young men and young women who are fitting themselves for this occupation is constantly increasing. In the past three years the number of candidates for one grade or another of teacher ' s cer- tificates or diplomas has grown at the University more than three hundred per cent. Even this increase does not represent the needs of Nevada, for at present not more than one-fourth of the new teachers required each year in the system of public instruction are prepared within Nevada. If the University is properly to fulfill this responsibility a building must be erected for the State Normal School, and additional instructors provided. A year ago a similar statement was made in the Artemisia in regard to the needs of this department of the University; since then the situation has materially changed and an even greater responsibility has devolved upon the institution through the provisions of the Smith-Hughes Act, recently passed by our National Congress. The approval of this Act by the President of the United States marks a new era in public education in America. In the storm and stress of our Civil War Congress laid the foundation in 1862 of a great system of higher education through all the States of the Union by the endowment of advanced vocational training in the Agricultural and mechanical colleges authorized by the first Morrill Act. In the days of the greatest conflict which the world has ever seen, and into which in one way or another our own country is inevitably drawn, Congress has again affirmed its conviction that education lies at the basis of free institutions, and that practical preparation of each rising genera- tion for the duties of life is the supreme responsibility of society and of government. As the United States has subsidized on an ever increasing scale agricultural and mechanical training in colleges, so it now proposes, on a scale which may presently surpass our imagination, the subsidizing of vocational work in elementary and secondary schools. Trade and commerce and industry will alike profit by this new policy, but to make it a success new types of teachers must be developed and that with the greatest possible promptitude. Recognizing this situation the Federal Congress has not only made available for Nevada a new appropriation twenty-mne ■I annually of $5,000 for the training of vocational teachers, conditioned on the allowance of a similar sum by the State, but it has gone further and affirmed that neither Nevada nor any other State shall after 1920 profit by the large annual subsidies for vocational teaching unless the necessary teachers are prepared at least in part within each commonwealth. The Smith-Hughes Act is the last and convincing proof that the next building provided by the Nevada Legislature for the University should be erected for the State Normal School and the Department of Education. i --;- i e Library Chemistry Building thirty A-COMPAi r ELROD POHL, First Lieutenant and Acting Captain JOHN HURD, Second Lieutenant JOHN DONOHUE, Second Lieutenant r tR, 4 " vWai .

Second Lieutenant thirty-two DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE WITHIN the last year there was established at the University of Nevada an Infantry unit of the Senior Division of the Reserve Officers Training Corps. The object for which the Reserve Officers Training Co rps is established in this and othor universities may be summed up as follows : To qualify by systematic and standard methods of training, students at civil educational insti- tutions for reserve officers in the United States Army. The system of instruction prescribed presents to these students a standardized measure of the military training necessary in order to prepare them to per- form intelligently the duties of commissioned officers in the military service of the United States, and enables them to be thus trained with the least practicable interference with their civil careers. The military policy of the United States is at present undergoing a Heard Capt. McClure, Pohl U. S. A. Snell Rice Crennen Wo ' .ford Maj. Moore Melarkey thirty-three radical change. The first step forward was the establishment of a reserve of enlisted men, privates and non-commissioned officers. This was made possible by increasing the term of enlistment and providing a certain length of time for actual service and the remainder of the enlistment in the reserve of the army, subject to call only in case of actual or threatened hostilities. The next step is to provide a reserve of commissioned officers to command the new units consisting of the enlisted reserve and volunteers called in case of necessity. The University Cadet Band The question arose as to the best method of obtaining the commis- sioned personnel of this reserve. The brightest and most patriotic young men of our country are found in the universities and colleges throughout the land. If we can train these young men in the duties of commissioned officers of the army and by appeal to their patriotism and obligations to their country induce them to make application for appointments in the Officers Reserve Corps after graduation we will have available in time of war the best material in the land, well trained to command the newly raised companies, battalions and regiments. .

The initial plan was to incorporate throughout the book a conventional design of the sagebrush, the characteristic state plant, after which this annual has been named. Unfortunately no such design could be found, and the plan was abandoned. In its stead we have tried to get a cover which resembles Nevada skies in color — and here we acknowledge the vanities of dyes — and in some of the art engravings, the artists have introduced in miniature a view of a typical Nevada scene. In one case it is the profile of the Sierra Nevadas as seen from the campus, in another the profile of buildings upon the campus. We have tried to secure a certain degree of uniformity throughout the Artemisia. All the department heads, not including those announcing athletics, have been kept in uniform style ; the printing in the art engrav- ings has been done by one man ; the articles have kept the same optimistic tone that so characterizes student activities. The Artemisia staff wishes to thank the various members of the Student Body who, either by pen or by contribution of art-cuts or snap- shots, have given us the material which would otherwise be unavailable in a university of our size. Especially have we felt the lack of representa- tive snap-shots, because continued unsettled weather during the past year has offered but little opportunity for securing camera pictures. But we believe that our book shows the best of them. If the Artemisia pleases you, we are glad ; if you find that we have made mistakes, remember that such is a privilege common to all of us; if any part makes you angry, believe us when we say that your viewpoint is mistaken. thirty-seven THE U. OF N. SAGEBRUSH iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!ii[iiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiii]iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiii FOUNDED under the name of the Student Record through the pri- vate initiative of students of the University and later adopted by the Associated Students under the pres- ent designation the Sagebrush has be- come the mouthpiece of the University in the chronichng of the campus news and in the expression and molding of student sentiment and endeavor. The publication is recognized in the constitution and is directly under the control of the Execu- Rufu.« Ogilvie John Heard five Committee. The editor and business manager are chosen in the same manner as the remaining student officers. The Sagebrush staff strives to realize that a most important task is placed in their hands for accomplishment, that in large measure the con- tents of the weekly editions mold student opinion and furnish the facts upon which action calculated to benefit the institution is built. At times the effort is only to crystallize feeling which is already in existence; in other instances a step ahead of the general status is cautiously taken and through open discussion and a frank facing of the facts some more advanced change is advocated. Within the four pages of the paper the campus news is placed and in addition an occasional effort at literary expression. A possible advance which would undoubtedly raise the standard and number of the contribu- tions is the inclusion with at least one of the editions each month a sheet, the purpose of which will be to offer an avenue for the publication of student literary creations of merit. A small additional fund to meet the cost of the extra printing would make possible the realization of the suggestion. thirty-eight iQaKiz ioK thirty-nine mit jmr jM |K V.

Melarkey, President Vernon C. Organ, Vice-President Eva Walker, Secretary Charles Gooding, Treasurer Joe McDonald, Graduate Manager of Athletics Elsie Humphreys, Women ' s Athletic Manager Joe Hill, Junior Class Representative Clay Willis, Sophomore Class Representative THE year is over, and the time has come to consider what we have accomplished. Through it all we have been moved by what we thought would be best for the student body. We have done our best for the welfare of the university and the strengthening of the university. The first important act consummated by the executive board was the adoption of the percentage basis for the sports in which the university engages. A great deal of time and thought was spent in working out the proper proportion of money to be set aside for the respective sports. The treasurer ' s books from the previous year furnished the data upon which the percentages were based. The following apportionment was made : Foot- ball, 33 per cent; men ' s basketball, 16 per cent; girl ' s athletics, 10 per cent; track, 10 per cent ; baseball, 6 per cent ; revolving fund, 23 per cent. The idea of the system was to find out exactly how much money was being expended on the various sports, and, if possible, to stay within the amount specified in the budget. The idea was all right, but there was one flaw in carrying it out, namely, that the executive board permitted borrow- ing from one fund to another. Since the separate funds were not carried along independently, football, being the first sport of the season, drew more than its just share. Every student has a right to know why the football season was too heavy financially. The large number of contracts which we had to fulfill and the $600 guarantee to the Utah Aggies made a big hole in our bank account. Another difficulty has been in the use of athletic equipment. Many articles have disappeared from the stock room which have had to be replaced from the A. S. U. N. treasury. forty-one The problem of financing the spring sports was presented to the student body at a meeting early in the semester. The executive board did not want to take the responsibility of plunging the student body deeper into debt in order to carry through these sports. It was decided to finance track and baseball by popular subscription, for this season, and next year by decreasing the football percentage to increase the revolving fund per- centage. In that way old indebtedness might " be paid off gradually. It is hoped that in the course of two or three years the A. S. U. N. can start in with a perfectly clean slate. The plans for track and baseball were, however, interrupted by the war, and the big meet on the coast made impossible. We are pretty well pleased with the success of the year. The attend- ance at Associated Student meetincs has been good, and the executive board has felt that it had the support of the entire student body — men and women alike. student IJudv Alii ' ;iii,i; on the Bleachers forty-two CLIONIA illt!!!,!!!!S!!

From a membership of ten at the first of the year it rapidly increased in numbers to twenty-eight. The society carries on all debating tryouts and contests, both inter- class and intercollegiate, and holds social and literary meetings. Its members are recruited from every department in the University. The Debating- Society The steady growth of the society and its large enrollment have made possible this year a heavier schedule of debates than has been entered upon in the past. forty-three The College of the Pacific met Nevada in the opening contest. The Nevada team, consisting of Thomas Edsall and Everett Layman, made a splendid showing, winning an unanimous decision over the visiting team. Thomas Edsall and Laurence Hansen, representing Nevada, visited the University of Utah for the second debate. Lacking the experience of their older opponents, the Nevada boys had to be satisfied with second honors. The final contest was held with the Dixie Normal College of Utah. The Nevada representatives, Everett Layman, and Chester Brennen, closed the season in splendid fashion by earning a two to one decision over the visitors. The club is to be commended for the excellence of its efforts in develop- ing forensic talent, and for its work as an advertising medium for the University. forty-four |||||(1III|||)|I|I|||IIIIIIIIIIIIII{|||||IIIIIIIIIIIIIIINIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1IIIIINIIIIIIIIIIIII THE AGRICULTURAL CLUB iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiimii Frank Harriman, President Francis Martin, Vice-President Ferney Snare, Secretary-Treasurer DURING the past year a new method of administration has been tried out, and has proved satisfactory. A board of directors, con- sisting of the Dean of the College of Agriculture, the officers of the club, and three lay members, was appointed. This board con- trolled the affairs of the " Aggie " Club, and discussed all plans for club activities. Early in the first semester the Aggies gave their annual ball to the student body and faculty, maintaining as always their reputation as excel- lent hosts. Through the efforts of the agricultural faculty the services of tho Reno Commercial Club were enlisted to secure for the agricultural students a trip to the State Fair held in Fallon. It was an opportunity much appreci- ated and enjoyed by the students, opening the eyes of many to the possi- bilities of Nevada. THE CHEMISTRY CLUB James W. Rice, President Dorothy Mahan, Vice-President John Luce, Secretary-Treasurer THE purpose of the Chemistry Club has been to foster interest in the science of chemistry. Semi-monthly meetings were held through- out the year, and at these meetings technical and popular papers were presented by club members and visitors. A wide-awake body of officers arranged informal banquets following several of the meetings, thereby keeping up the interest of the members and offering inducement to new members. Although small, and restricted in scope, the club has the proper spirit of co-operation, and for that reason is successful. forty-five iiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiNiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiN m THE ENGINEERING CLUB Tom King, President Louis Meyer, Vice-President Henry Hart, Secretary-Treasurer BEYOND a doubt, the Engineers ' Club is the livest organization of its kind in the University of Nevada. Starting the year with a bad deficit, the club has not only cleared up its debts but has closed its year ' s activities with untangled finances. By consistent work and commendable team-play, the members have established for the club a reputation for energy, and for successful completion of any task it might undertake. The annual Engineers ' Day celebration was of more than ordinary importance this year, inasmuch as the members of the Nevada State Legislature were the guests of the club. Following the day ' s demonstra- tion of engineering equipment, came the annual Engineers ' Ball. Through the efforts of Dean J. G. Scrugham and the courtesy of the American Transcontinental Telephone Company, an unusual treat was afforded the visitors at the ball. The service of the transcontinental line was suspended for one hour, and during that time, the Nevada representatives in Wash- ington, D. C, conversed with prominent Nevada people who were guests at the ball. Three hundred individual receivers enabled the remaining guests to hear the conversations over the line. The first auto show ever given in Reno stands as a tribute to Engi- neering enterprise. The gymnasium was given over to the different auto- mobile agencies in Reno, and the latest models of cars were placed upon exhibit. The club arranged a special program of music, and dancing, and set aside the closing night of the show as " Society Night. " And now, at the close of the year, the Engineering Club looks back over its work, and with just pride commends itself as being a wide-awake, truly actively-earnest organization. forty-seven iiiiiiiiiiiiiii|iiiiiii|iiiiii]|iiiii]]iii|iii]iiiiiiiiiii|im THE CRUCIBLE CLUB iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiii«iiiiiiin]ii|iraiii|iiiiiii|iijiii]m Frank Silva, President Harry Moore, Secretary EARLY last fall the mining students of the university reorganized the Crucible Club, which, since 1906, has been the official organization of the mining men. Meagre enrollment in the mining school and continued lack of interest on the part of those who were enrolled have previously checked its activities during the past few years. However, the recent boom in the mining industry, communicated to the campus, has inspired a newer and better organization, comprising the Departments of Mining, Metallurgy and Geology, and including in its membership both students and faculty. The object of the club is to promote interest in mining problems by having well-known mining men present in short talks, certain fundamen- tal principles of the various types of mining practiced throughout the world. The students are thus put in touch with the work of mining com- panies, are able to better select a field of definite study, and in addition are given opportunities for employment upon graduation. forty-nine Juanita Frey Lai la Baker Helena Shade Y.

Through her efficient service many improvements have been made in carrying out the purpose of the association which is to unite the women of the University in loyalty to Jesus Christ, to lead them to accept Him as their personal Saviour and to build them up in the knowledge of Christ through study and christian service. The work of the association is carried on by a system of nine commit- tees, presided over by chairmen who, together with the elected officers, president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, and annual member, com- prise the cabinet of the association. It is the duty of the cabinet to transact the business of the association, to discuss plans for the work during the year, to keep in mind every means for the furtherance of the purpose among the members, and for helping and serving others. The Y. W. C. A. manifests itself in many ways on and off the campus. Every Wednesday afternoon is held the regular meeting with a greatly varying program each week. Through the work of the Extension Com- mittee there is a thriving Girls ' Club at the Reno High School. At Christ- mas time an effort is made to help some of the needy families in town, and this year the association succeeded in rendering a small service to five families. Every summer the association in the Pacific Coast field, including California, Nevada and Arizona, send delegates to a ten-day conference at Asilomar, California. For the last two years Nevada has had a fine delegation of twelve or fourteen girls. Asilomar is no longer just a name. Every Nevada girl longs to be one of those chosen to go. The association, confident that it is of growing service to the campus community, has a place for all girls, and is coming to have an important place in the state, whose future betterment can only arise out of the worthi- ness of the present. fifty-one J I MEN ' S GLEE CLUB lll{!IINIIIIIllllllllll!IIINniilllllllilillllllllllllNI1llilll1{illlllllllltl{llllli{ll!lililllllllll!lllllll!lllllllllllillllllllHIIIIIIII1lllliilllllllllNlllllllll{lll[llllllllllll! TO the average student of the University of Nevada the word Glee Club is synonomous with good times, many entensive trips taken with care free abandon, and in general an exceedingly long round of pleasure, a veritable sugar-coated pill of joy supersaturated with highly efficient saccharine to be taken only on tours. There are many abstrusive reasons why this fallacious understanding should be corrected. Primarily the Glee Club is a university organization working toward defini te ideals to perpetuate the good name of Nevada among the citizens and high schoois of the state. This they do gladly and without any financial assistance ftom the university, and all they have ever asked from the student body is a slight interest in their efforts and the moral support of the university in general. To make the Glee Club is not as easy as it would appear to the casual observer. It means long, hard hours of practice and self denial with no greater or grander or more magnificent a recompense in view than the knowledge that it has served the university well and made possible, by its short trips through the state, a closer acquaintance between the good people of Nevada and the university which their beneficence has made possible.

Harris, President HULDA Shartel, Vice-President Grace Fuss, Treasurer LORA Lamberson, Secretary A T the beginning of the year Manzanita Hall was in a state of partial ruin as the result of fire, but J[ material gloom was amply dispelled by a hearty welcome extended the girls by Miss Brown, Dean of Women, and Miss Kempton, newly elected Mistress of the Hall. And so throughout the year the un- flagging interest of Dean Brown, who has resided in the hall, and the capable and comradely direction of Miss Kempton have assured the girls that co-operation and companionship learned through dormitory life is no small portion of the many important subjects one attains in a college training. Edith Haiii.s The traditional L. F. G. Association has been maintained with some modification to promote a cooperative hall administration, and regular business meetings have been conducted monthly. The officers of the associ- ation consist of a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer, with a definite system of committees. In a material way the Hall has witnessed a gain this year, for through repair of fire damages every room in the dormitory has been renovated, new lights have been put in the halls, a new system of showers has been installed, the laundry has been remodeled, a spacious sleeping porch has been added and the reception rooms have been made much more attrac- tive. A late addition to these last named rooms is a set of wicker furniture brought from the Nevada building at the San Francisco Exposition. A homelike spirit has been lent to the Hall by the frequent use of the parlors for group parties, and every Friday afternoon Miss Brown and Miss Kempton have been hostesses to the university girls at tea. Besides the smaller social activites the Hall entertained the men of Lincoln Hall at an informal dance the first semester. fifty-seven The registration at the Hall has this year numbered seventy, thus representing half of the women students. Manzanita Hall Association is established as a potent fatcor of ITniversity life.

Most of these men are working their way through college ; and the existence of Lincoln Hall, with its splen- did accommodations at practically no expense to those who make it their home, is one of the reasons why these men are attending the University of Nevada. A man who works for an education is appreciative of its benefits. It follows that he is conscientious in his studies. Such are Lincoln Hall men. Yet they are not " grinds " by any means. They are a jolly crowd, would " Brow " Gooding rather be in good spirits than bad, and if left alone, would rather sleep than eat, especially in the mornings. But it ' s a hall tradition that the cold tub or a visit to Manzanita in pajamas awaits the man who slumbers late. The men are organized under the name of the Lincoln Hall Associa- tion. The Mayor of the hall is the presiding officer at all meetings. Few rules are in effect, but those few must be rigidly observed. Gambling and strong drinks are absolutely " tabooed. " Noise in the halls must cease at 7:30 p. m. so that men who wish to study, may do so undisturbed. An annual custom is a house-warming partj to the members of Man- zanita Hall. The rooms of the men are thrown open to inspection by the visitors. Games, music, dancing, and a tasty banquet constitute the evening ' s program of entertainment. Another custom is the Lincoln Hall Smoker. This is a purely " stag " affair, attended by all faculty members, all Lincoln Hall members, and invited guests. State notable are always present, either as Hall alumni or as guests of honor. At the close of the evening, the guests are requested to write their names in the " Guest Book " as a memoir for future Lincoln Hall inmates. The big study-table is fitted with a soft-pine top, and in an alotted space, the upper-class members are permitted to carve their names, if they have satisfied certain requirements of the association. sixty-one The hall is under the supervision of Mr. Turner, who has secured the friendship and respect of the Lincoln Hall men by his sympathy and understanding.

W. Hill ' s class in Shakespearean drama. The purpose of the society is not only to develop histrionic talent among the young women of the University, but to awaken an apprec- iative interest in dramatic interpretation by the presentation of standard plays. New members are elected from the Sophomore and Junior classes at the end of the school year. The requirements for membership are a major or minor in English as well as a genuine aptitude for dramatic expression. It is the intention of Delta Alpha Epsilon to present two plays a year, a modern one the first semester, and an Elizabethan drama during the second semester. The first formal appearance of the society was in the Shaw comedy, " You Never Can Tell. " The entire performance was carried through with gratifying success. The proceeds from the play are being used to purchase costumes and properties for " Twelfth Night, " the second presentation for the college year. sixty-five Dorothy Higgins Dorothy Morrison Myrtle Cameron Magdalena Bertschy Lavira Rain.s Wilfii-d Wylio Che.sler Hi ' eiiiien George Oailvie stxty-stx iiiiiiiiiiiiimiiimiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiniiiiiiii MU ALPHA NU iniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiniiNniiiNiiiiiiinmiiiiiiiiimiiiiniiiiiiuiiiiNiii " " ' i™ ' i " " ™i " i ' ' i ' iiii " ' i " " i ' ' ' ii " i ' ' ' i " iii!iiiil ' |i ' l " ;wi!

We felt that the subject had too long been unjustly termed a bugbear, impossible for a mind not gifted with mathematical talent to master. It seemed to us that with organized cooperation the science could be made of practical value to all students and might attract greater numbers to that field of work. Under the direction of Dr. Haseman the club was organized as the " Math Club " with the majors and minors in the department as members. The meetings however were open to all, and consequently, since the talks were either too elementary to benefit the members, or too technical to be understood by the visitors, the club was not entirely successful in satisfying its purpose. The fall of 1916 found the nucleus of the Math Club endeavoring to continue under the old constitution, but feeling that to succeed, they must reorganize with a new purpose and a definite aim. On March 4, 1917, the Math Club was entirely reorganized as a Junior, Senior Mathematics Honor Society and duly baptized Mu Alpha Nu. The society will annually issue its publication " The Colybedian " which will deal with the problem of mathematical instruction in the High Schools of Nevada. Through this publication the society and the Department of Mathematics will endeavor to be of some practical value to the instructors of High School mathe- matics and to students intending to extend their knowledge of the science. stxty-seven _ PI i W t%x l BB K mBm H Bi . mH I nY M % ' 9Hmi l l k. « Jl l w wji (••••• . iH -a j ' WSmm B HbHHHh - cc } ' bs} n!

The motives which underlay the formation of the society strongly appealed to the group of men who later constituted the complete membership of the group and the leaders in the student life of the school, combined for the purpose of securing the realization of the aims of the organization. The presence of certain unsatisfactory conditions in the Student Body, the lack of the fullest possible support to university activities, the failure of the campus to unite in hearty effort for the upbuilding of the institution suggested certain changes, and the belief was realized that an organization of men from all the groups of the university, who had given evidence by their endeavor and achievement that they held the needs and growth of the institution in highest regard, might result in real improvement and satis- factory progress. Through the standard which it sets for members the society not only becomes a group of men who, through discussion and public action, can render service to the university; but election to membership in its ranks assumes the character of recognition of loyalty and real endeavor intended to promote the welfare of the campus. The purpose of Coffin and Keys is to secure and render efficient the complete cooperation of all students by combining in organized form the men of the university who are considered leaders in student life and activity. Men who combine the qualities of sane leadership and enthusi- astic loyalty are sought and bid as members, with the idea that combined effort and full discussion are the best methods of solving problems and promoting progress. Membership in the society is limited to Seniors and Juniors. Professor Jones, head of the Department of Geology, is the faculty member and adviser of the organization. sixty-mne KimiMlllllllUllllllllMllMllllllllllllll PHI KAPPA PHI :ll{|INli:iltllli:ill{llllliliiiuliiililJiillullii!nlillii{lilill)llllliiiiui!lllin!llllllllliiiiliniiiiiii:iinnilllliiill)liilllllllliinilw seventy Nevada Chapter, Established May 4, 1912 ROMANZO Adams, President Katherine Riegelhuth, Vice-President L.

McDonald, ' 15, Member Executive Committee KEEPING ever paramount the one idea — the welfare of their Alma Mater — the members of the University of Nevada Alumni Associ- ation during the past year took the most progressive step since its organization and it is now in a position to give material and concerted aid to the upbuilding of the University. By popular vote, in which a large part of the membership of the association took part, the old constitution under which it worked for many years was discarded and a new one given its place. The association broad- ened its scope by admitting graduates of the Normal School, on the same basis as regular graduates, and thereby settled a question that has been discussed at every alumni gathering for the past ten years. The grad- uates of the Normal School have taken a keen interest in the University and their cooperation with the association, it is believed, will create a broader interest in all University affairs and will ultimately greatly benefit the institution. The most important and far-reaching provision of the new constitu- tion is the creation of the Alumni Senate and the placing in the hands of this Senate unlimited power. The Senate is to be composed of fifteen members, each member serving for a term of five years. It will take up questions relating to the internal affairs and policies of the University; the relation of the University to the people of the State ; the relations of the people of the State to the University ; and will consider and pass upon all questions with which the University and the Alumni are in any way interested. Three members of the Senate are to be elected each year and no graduate is eligible for election until three years after graduation. This provision assures the Alumni that the Senate will, at all times, be composed of men and women who have had some experience in the world out of college and can be depended upon to give each and every question affecting the University the most careful consideration before taking action. seventy-three The plan is a new one and will have to be tried out for a year or more before final judgment can be passed upon it, but it no doubt will fill a gap that has long been felt in the relations of the Alumni to the University. Above all it will p lace the Alumni of the institution — the men and women who should be most interested in its growth and welfare — in a position to help shape its policies and extend its influenc? throughout the State in which it should be and is fast becoming the greatest factor for the up- building and development of the resources. seventy-four seventy-five CLASS OFFICERS SENIORS Fall Semester Spring Semester Agnes Constable, President Gardner Chism, President Gardner Chism, Vice-President George Malone, Vice-President Dorothy Mahan, Secretary Juanita Frey, Secretary Carl Kemper, Treasurer Carl Kemper, Treasurer JUNIORS Fall Semester Spring Semester Rufus Ogilvie, President Lyle Kimmel, President Lester Jones, Vice-President Adelle Norcross, Vice-President Myrtle Cameron, Secretary Nellie Wilkinson, Secretary Harry Day, T) ' easurer Francis Martin, Treasurer SOPHOMORES Fall Semester Spring Semester Clay Willis, President Thomas Edsall, President Zelma Francis, Vice-President Isabel Slavin, Vice-President Lola Hanna, Secretary Zelma Francis, Secretary Pearl Dekker, Treasurer Harry Stephens, Treasurer FRESHMEN Fall Semester Spring Semester Ernest Tam, President Tom Jones, President Catherine Kemper, V. -President Blanche Garrison, V.-President Margaret Queen, Secretary Leila Ogilvie, Secretary August Berning, Treasurer Donald Hutson, Treasurer ievenly-six r{icDr screnty-seven iiiiiiit iiiiiiiii itiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiijiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiii II II I I mill iiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iii;iiiiiiiiiiiiiii[tiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiiiimiiiii!ii!iiiiNMiiiiiiiiiiiiiii{iiiiiiimiiiii!iiii IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINIIIIIIIIII SENIORS n!lll!IIIIIIIIIINIIIIIIItl{l|l![llllllllll{IIIIINIlill!Hli!l!lll1llllllllllllllllllllll[ll!llll|lllllllll[1lll!lllllllllllllllllllll SEVENTEEN is on the last lap of her four years race. It has been a glorious race, too, even the Fac- ulty tell us how much the Univer- sity will miss us. And it must be borne in mind that they see many Senior classes. Four years ago, in the fall of 1913, the greenest class of all registered with Miss Sissa. This was the first class to enter without a single " Prep " and so wc Asnes Constable had nO One who knCW the ropes. Gardner Cliism College opened with the usual rush. Our first fight was held in front of the Congregational Church. Seventeen had started down town together and at that corner were met by the Sophs. There was A battle — the Reno police pronounced it a draw. On Wednesday evening the Frosh gathered in Eddie Neasham ' s barn, and in the darkness sallied forth and tore down Sixteen ' s posters, and just by way of showing their " pep " they hoisted a dummy. Two nights later the regular dummy rush took place. Seventeen came off successful in this scrimmage but lest in the cane rush the following Monday morning. About this time the Juniors began to hint and tell us that it was the " customary thing " for the Frosh to show appreciation of the Juniors existence by inviting them on a hay ride. So ' 17 did the " customary thing " and gave them a hay ride and dance at Huffakers, and incidentally they received the customary greeting — eggs, chemicals, and the gauntlet of garden hose. With the opening of the fall athletic season Freshmen appeared eagerly upon the field. In football, as in basketball and track, ' 17 was never without representation on the Varsity teams. At the rally, just before the Nevada-All Black game, ' 17 put on the first Freshman stunt ever g iven by the " Babies " in a football rally. This was only one of the many good customs she has started on the hill. Later, as upper classmen, she has seen to it that each Freshman class has carried on the good work. As spring came on the social feeling became so strong among the members of this class that they decided to give a party. Thursday night seventy-nme was chosen for a dance at Beebe Hall. But the powers that be, had said, " There are too many social functions, " and that sort of thing must 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 " Polly ' s " complaint, of being " between two fires, " as it were. Backed by all this notoriety the Frosh were enabled to give an unusually original and successful Glee. The Sophomore year was one of achievement through the standing together of a small number. For the Freshmen were a mob and many Seventeeners were unable to return. The dummy rush was a terrific fight and as the Frosh numbered two to one of the Sophs the outcome was easily prophesied. However, the rush lasted seventeen minutes, an unusual time for such a tie-up. Seventeen carried the day in the much more spectacular cane rush two days later. The third year of our college life opened, and we banded together more firmly than ever, with the fixed resolve that our class would leave nothing undone. Accordingly a stafi " was immediately appointed to edit and publish the college year book. The Artemisia of 1917 stands as a fitting monument of the spirit of this class. The time has come to take stock of the individual achievements of the members of this class. We find in athletics the record shows the fulfillment of the promise shown as Freshmen. Ability has also been shown along other lines. The record in scholarship during four years show that fifteen have received honorable mention from the University, five have been elected to Phi Kappa Phi Fraternity. The last sad, happy, days of the Seniors are at hand. " Peppy " to the last, the class is working hard to stage the " Senior Farce, " and to make it the best play of them all. We are looking forward to many things: honors, degrees, and just plain fun together. But underneath it all runs the quiet strain that has held ' 17 together through four years. Let ' s hope it will unite her for twenty times four years more — it is the strain of true friendship, so let ' s work to keep it among us, and even though we are widely separated, never to let it die. eighty Elsie D.

Having outgrown the childish activities of our first two years, — the rushes, the duck- ings, the wild hay-rides, — we have now turned our attention to the more im- portant business of university life. 1 Mit ri iqj s mtm i j " Rufe " Osilvie Lyle Kinimel With the dignity and condescension that come with more mature years, we now regard with amused tolerance the interclass brawls of the Sophomores and Freshmen, and when occasion demands, step with firmness upon exuberant underclassmen. Although we have outgrown the frivolities of our earlier years in college, we have retained the habit of doing things vigorously and well. In athletics, in scholarship, in social functions and all the varied activities of the campus, the Class of 1918 has more than held its own. Our record in track especially deserves mention ; for three successive years we have won the inter-class track meet. Several of our men have made their " N ' s " in football and basketball. A member of the class has participated in two winning intercollegiate debates. Our dances have been marked by originality and will be remembered by the campus community as being successfully staged. ninety-three In addition to having a lot of enthusiasm for these extra-curricular activities, the Juniors have not lagged in scholarship, and have more than their proportional share of good grades and classroom honors. Of course the crowning achievement of this year is the publication of the Artemisia. The staff has had the loyal assistance of the class in making this Junior year-book one of the best that has ever been issued. We don ' t expect to rest on our laurels, and with the success of this year to quit fighting. With the unity that comes with pulling together, and the organization which we have effected in the course of our three years in college, we intend to make next year the culminating period in a class history that has been replete with deeds and dreams. ety-four A.

' all IN AUGUST, 1915, we entered the University of Nevada. Since that time the college has never been for- getful of our presence. We have not allowed it to. We began our career in a blaze of glory, on the night when we vanquished the Sophs in the historic Mill Street fight. From that time till now the blaze has followed our trail, and has never flickered. Nevada will not soon forget our battles with the ' 18 class during those hM W: Clay Willis first nights of our Freshman year, nor our hayride, from which the Sophs trooped silently home, soaked with punch, and smarting with the bitter memory of defeat. Nor will history forget to save a page for our Fresh- man Glee, which the college praised as the best dance of the year. Besides, .A 4,S-:»i mf:,SWf ' . a A " f2 i( JS -?

We set a standard which Freshman classes of future years will do well to imitate. As Sophomores our light has shone even brighter. Seldom has a Sophomore Hop equalled ours. Never, to our knowledge, has a class made for itself an athletic record such as we have made. Our football team met the best the school could offer, and emerged from the interclass tournament with colors flying. Basketball season was only a repetition of the long list of victories. Buckman, the next year ' s varsity captain, is one of us. Now our track men are pounding around the cinder oval, and, if we know any- thing of track men, the other classes will run far and fast if they beat us. We are going to keep right on making good. We have never yet been found wanting, and we are ready whenever the U. of N. needs us.

We took things seriously and lost sleep over the matter. We couldn ' t help our- selves — the Sophs kept us so busy that our idea of solid comfort was one hour of peaceful sleep on the soft floor of Morrill Hall. We first exchanged greet- ings on Maple street. In our pleasure at meeting we forgot ourselves and raised our voices to such an extent that the police were dragged into the discussion. Somebody overslept the morning of the dummy rush and as a result the Sophs had an easy time in tieing us up and carrying us across the dead line. They were so jubilant over the fact that they told us in two sets of posters just what they thought of us. We expressed our opinion of them in a counter poster — the first of its kind ever produced so far as we know. Our hatred for each other had reached its climax by this time and we finally settled all our grievances in the annual cane rush. The com- bined effect of our numbers and organization resulted in our breaking an eight -year record by keeping the cane from crossing the line for twenty minutes, the required limit of time. Since our first strenuous week we have met the Sophs in both foot- ball and basketball, being defeated in both events, but the fight our teams have shown has made us proud of them. We feel that our class has been imbued with the real Nevada fighting spirit. We have already added four men, Harker, Hutson, Tam and O ' Dowda, to the Block N Society, and in the future hope to furnish material for every sort of college activity. That our success in our first semester was in a great measure due to the willing aid of the Juniors, we realized and expressed our appreciation by a " hayride " in their honor. Our " racks " in the form of two coaches and an engine left the V. T. depot for Washoe at eight o ' clock amid a shower of tomatoes, eggs, etc. The girls had kindly furnished a light lunch which was served during a successful dance, unmarred by intruding one hundred nineteen Sophs. Then someone told us about Mackay Day, and someone else told us that the " N " must be brightened before that day arrived. Our " puri- fication " fund rose slowly until ' 20 ' s girls decided to superintend the work and provide a feed. Then the fund took an im- mediately enormous rise. All credit is due the girls for encouraging us by their presence and their " bully " feed. We finished that day of glee only to start upon another one. Friday, the 13th, didn ' t sound gleeful — it wasn ' t — but our dance was and our " 20 " smiled down from the ceil of the big gymnasium upon a large and jolly gathering of college men and women. We gave this, which was our first big college dance, as the crowning event of our Freshmen year, and as a measure of our sincere appreciation for the many favors tendered us by the school. The success of the oc- casion was therefore unusually gratifying to every member of the Class of 1920. one hundred twenty j i5J £jW| . one hundred twenty-one PATRONESSES ROWN, ex-officio Mrs. a. W.

The spirit of the affair was in fact the spirit of a home- coming — welcome and greeting to old friends and new friends alike ; happy laughter over still more happy reminiscences ; " peppy " music and a smooth floor promoted jolly spirits that presaged well for the coming social season. DELTA DELTA DELTA September 2, 1916 Delta Delta Delta were charming hostesses at a reception given to the Faculty and Student Body at the home of President and Mrs. Hendrick. The delighted appreciation of the guests assured the hostesses that their efforts had been highly successful. THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA ORCHESTRA September 29, 1916 The University of Nevada Orchestra, carefully developed and directed by Mr. A. W. Preston, announced itself to the Student Body by a formal dance in the gymnasium. Everyone heartily enjoyed the affair, not only because the music was excellent, but because so many surprises were pro- vided the guests in the way of concessions for hats, coats, chairs, punch, standing room and breathing space. THE " AGGIE " BALL October 13, 1916 Everybody came to the " Aggie " ' annual dance, for the " Aggies " are famed for being jolly hosts. The decorative scheme was rustic in the extreme. Bales of hay, dried corn stalks, a harvest moon and even a little live stock made the affair assume the appearance of a real barn dance. The committee in charge of the evening ' s entertainment was Coin Cazier, Elmer Knight and Lester Quail. one hundred twenty-three DELTA DELTA DELTA October 20, 1916 Delta Delta Delta invited all the women students of the University to a track-meet at which many extraordinary records were made, including that of a fine time. The bicycle race, the shot put and the football game were thrilling events of the evening ' s program. THE SOPHOMORE " HOP " November 24, 1916 For the first time the campus tradition for holding class dances in the Gym was broken, and the Sophomores held their " Hop " at Wilsonian Hall in the city. Dainty hearts and arrows formed the programs, and punch was served during the evening. The dance was a tremendous suc- cess. The chairmen of committees were : Fern Wright, Philip Frank and Earl Wooster. THE JUNIOR " PROM " January 19, 1917 The first important social event of the second semester was the Junior " Prom, " which drew a gay crowd of dancers to the Gym. Streamers in gold and black, with many alluring cozy corners, and a miniature cabaret under one of the balconies were the chief decorative features. The chair- men of committees, who may be congratulated on the success of the dance, were Phoebe King, Lyle Kimmel, Adelle Norcross and Ferney Snare. ENGINEERS ' BALL March 11, 1917 The annual celebration of Engineers ' Day was concluded by a dance in the Gym which was preceded by a transcontinental telephone demon- stration. Some three hundred telephone receivers had been installed in order that students and friends of the University miglit hear the conver- sations carried on between prominent citizens here and Nevada ' s repre- sentatives in Washington. This successful demonstration and the pleasant dance which followed earned for the Engineering students the reputation of being excellent executives and hosts. one hundred twenty-four " JITNEY CRAWL " March 16, 1917 The " Jitney Crawl " which the A. S. U. N. tendered proved to be one of the most fantastic and original dances ever given on the campus. Every- body came in costume, and prizes were awarded to the best, or perhaps, worst dressed pair. The general good time proved that dress suits and evening gowns are not necessary for the success of a dance. Earl Wooster was chairman of the evening ' s entertainment. " HE-JINKS " March 28, 1917 There were great things doing in the Gym the night the men students and Faculty men assembled there for the annual " He-Jinks. " Smokes and eats and clever stunts made the evening pass all too soon. Coin Cazier was chairman of the stunt committee, and Elrod Pohl of the refreshment committee. Ea Sl MACKAY DAY DANCE March 30, 1917 The Gothic-N Society, the girls ' basketball organization, arranged the dance which followed the Mackay Day celebration. Everyone enjoyed the informality of this pleasant occasion, and the committee, of which Juanita Frey was chairman, is to be congratulated on its success. DELTA DELTA DELTA CONVENTION April 5, 6, 7, 1917 A fraternity convention was held at the University for the first time when Delta Delta Delta girls were hostesses to the delegates from the Pacific Coast chapters of Seattle, Washington ; Eugene, Oregon ; Berkeley, and Stanford, California. The convention was concluded with a reception and dance at the Century Club, to which the entire Student Body and Faculty were invited. one hundred twenty-five FRESHMEN " GLEE " April 13, 1917 The Freshmen proved to be most charming hosts and hostesses at the annual " Glee, " and credit must be given them for the admirable way in which the Gym was transformed by their clever decorating. In the center of the hall was suspended a large " 20 " illuminated with electric lights, and from this hundreds of purple and white streamers reached to the corners and sides of the balconies, while a huge American flag was draped over the archway. The strains of the Star Spangled Banner swept the couples into the grand march, and a patriotic atmosphere was felt throughout the evening. Those in charge of the delightful event were : Tom Jones, chairman ; Jack Frost, Malcolm Watson, Leo Bartlett, Donald Hutson, Katherine Kemper, Margaret Queen and Geraldine Clayton. one hundred twenty-six O.

With nothing but the most rudimentary knowledge of the game the team entered the first contest of the season against the Stewart Indians. At no time was Nevada in danger of losing the game, although unfamiliarity with signals was a great handi- cap. A strong wind caused many fumbles but the game was not without its thrills. The Indians made one very clever play scoring on a forward pass from the 3-yard line after failing to buck Nevada ' s defense. The game ended with a score of 36 to 7 with Nevada on the long end. The following Saturday the Varsity met the Sacramento Athletic Club. Although we won by the huge score of 77 to 3 yet the victory meant little to us as the opposing team was unworthy of our recognition. After a two weeks ' rest we went up against the Olympic Club on October 14th. In the opening quarter Nevada seemed to have the advan- tage and the Olympics were kept on the defensive. With the start of the second quarter, however, the marvelous machine of the winged " O ' s " started working, and slowly but surely Nevada was driven backward. On the one-yard line Nevada stiffened and the Olympics lost the ball only to once more hammer a slow progress down the field. Nevada put up a good defense but three times her opponents forced their way through. Kicking two of the touchdowns gave the Olympics a total of twenty points. The feature of the game was a 60-yard run by Root but Nevada was unable to score. It was a good game and well played. The following week the Sagebrush warriors left for California to test the mettle of the California Frosh. Nevada blundered often throughout the game. The kicks were invariably bad. The feature of the game was the score after a 60-yard run by Kai Kee, the end of the Frosh team. We were beaten to the tune of 34 to 0. We had been beaten but not discouraged. On October 28th we met the Utah Aggies on our own field and beat them 9 to 7. It was a fast and snappy game and wonderful from a rooter ' s standpoint. Nevada started down the field with a rush after the whistle blew. Her steady attack one hundred thirty-one Head Coach, Jack Glascock Capt. Lloyd Root Capt. -Elect " Fran " Martin Prof. Charles Haseman one hundred thirty-two brought the first score, but it wasn ' t converted. Throughout the remainder of the first half Nevada had the advantage but was unable to score. In between halves the rooters serpentined the field to renew their enthusiasm for the coming struggle. In the early part of the second half each team gained but seemed to lack the final punch necessary for a score. In the last quarter Utah by a series of bucks scored and converted. Score, Utah 7, Nevada 6. Nevada came back strong and after an exchange of kicks started through to the other end of the field. The Aggies defense stiffened. Buckman drop kicked and the score stood 9 to 7 in our favor. The play then remained in the middle of the field, Utah making one sensa- tional attempt to score, but failing. Full of enthusiasm we met Davis on the following Saturday. The game started out with a bang but the Davis men had us outclassed and we lost, 26 to 7. Many forward passes were tried but all excepting two failed to be completed. This defeat put a damper on our spirits when we bucked up against the California Frosh on November 11th on Mackay Field. The game was replete with thrills and full of good football. Nevada ' s one score was made in the beginning of the second half. Two open runs, followed by two short runs, and then the quarter carried the ball over through center. We were no match for the California Babes and the game ended 36 to 6 with Nevada on the short end. The intercollegiate season ended November 18th when we again met Davis, this time on their field. The Davis men again outclassed us and showed their superiority by the score of 27 to 7. Nevada went into the game with a determination to win and did win the first half, making a score of seven to Davis ' nothing. Between halves the coach for Davis raked his men over the coals and accomplished something wonderful with the Davis team. Anyway they came back and fought with a viciousness that took our men off their feet and won the game for Davis. And so our football season ended with its victories and its disappoint- ments. We learned much, a great deal to be used in future struggles, but we learned it at the cost of defeat and sometimes that is hard to take. The team that played the big game : Quarterback, Martin ; right half- back.

Without undue boasting or prejudice we can justly say that we have one of the best college basketball teams on the Pacific coast. The Oakland Golds were our first opponents in an early season game on January 12th. Handicapped by a lack of team play due to the earliness of the season, and opposed by a team of championship calibre, Nevada lost to the tune of 47 to 27. The Oakland Golds are a crack team, and although it was a defeat, under the circumstances we are inclined to judge it lightly. The following week we played our second game of the season with the Acorn Club of Sacramento and hit our season ' s stride by winning easily, the score being 37 to 27. The season started in earnest when we played the first game of the California-Nevada League with the crimson-jersey ed quintet from St. Mary ' s. This team came up from Oakland with a fine record and the backing of the whole coast. Nevada sent them back, beaten in the greatest game that it has ever been the Nevada rooters ' good fortune to witness. The lead changed times just nine times during the game. The second half ended with a score of 40 to 40, Moy of St. Mary ' s tying the score just before the whistle blew. Then the rooting section re-lived its agonies of suspense while the two teams fought an extra five minute period. During a whirlwind finish Nevada ran up 8 points to the visitors ' 4. Capt. McCub- bin and McKenzie playing with coolness and accuracy as forwards, big Buckman picking ' em out of the ceiling as center, and Tam and Brown as guards playing St. Mary ' s best men off their feet, were the men respon- sible for this great victory. The next game was with Davis and our team gathered it up in easy form, 62 to 14. Although Davis furnished a good game last year, this time their team was a toy for our men, who ran up the score at will in a rather listless exhibition of basketball. However, it gave Coach Ross a chance to try out Leap and Gooding at guard and forward, both men showing up well. one hundred thirty seven The real test came when our boys went to the coast to play the last four games with College of the Pacific, Santa Clara, Stanford and St. Ignatius. We were to play the four games in five days, and to win all four would require almost super-human energy and endurance. We expected to win easily from St. Ignatius and College of the Pacific, but we knew that Stanford and Santa Clara would be hard to beat. The men selected to make the trip were Captain McCubbin, McKenzie, Buckman, Tam, Brown, Leap, Baker and Jones. First came Pacific, and the Nevada boys wired home a 66 to 18 victory. At no stage of the game was the result in doubt. Nevada played like a m_achine, every man steady with McCubbin as the biggest factor in rolling up the score. The game with Stanford had been scheduled for Friday night, but since Stanford had a conflicting date with the Oregon Aggies, Nevada agreed to play on Wednesday, the night after the Pacific game, Stanford took the lead and made 16 points while we made 14 in the first half. Then in the second half Nevada spurted until we had a total of 27 to Stanford ' s 17. Then it was Stanford ' s turn to spurt and five minutes before th e end of the game they started throwing a remarkable series of freak baskets, and won the game by a close score of 33 to 30. Then Nevada met Santa Clara in a second disastrous game and lost by the score of 33 to 30. The first half came to an exciting close with our boys 2 points ahead. In the second half both teams took up the struggle with determination, and fought to another tie — 29 to 29. Five minutes more and the score stood 33 to 30. The following night Nevada came back and defeated St. Ignatius 44 to 17 in an easy game. Summing the season up, Nevada played a wonderful game of basket- ball throughout the whole season and if conditions had been at all equal for us we would have won every game easily. As it was, we tied for first place in the League championship with California, Santa Clara and Stanford. But by our last game, in which we defeated California, we feel entitled to first place. The last game was played with California on our home court on the third of March. It was to be the big game of the season and we were dis- appointed that California did not send her best men. Of her team only three were Varsity men. As it was, we triumphed in a slow game, 53 to 23. The line-up for the California game was as follows : Forwards, McCubbin, McKenzie; center, Buckman; guards, Tam, Leap, Brown. This game made Nevada ' s total season score 333, to her opponents ' 182. one hunared thirty-eight FOR a college of our size we consider ourselves particularly strong in track, and last year we justified this opinion. We were fortunate in possessing a well balanced track team with some stars worthy of note and a reliable proportion of veterans. The first of March found the candidates for track honors out on Mackay field getting the winter stiffness out of their bones and limbering- up in easy little jogs around the oval. Thirty athletes of all sizes and description were out at the first call, among them several of the old point winners: Melarkey in the mile and two mile, Hovey in the mile and the half. Greenwood in the hurdles, Hill and Wolford in the weights, and Captain Root in the broad jump and sprints. Altogether the squad promised excellent material from which Coach Glascock was to build the 1916 track team. The first opportunity for a tryout came in the Interclass meet on Mackay Day. The day was perfect, the track in fine condition, the men 1916 Track Team one hundred thirty-nine Nevada vs?. Davis Aggies. Stever leads at start ct ' 44U - Nevada vs. Davis Aggies. Stever leads at finish of -140 one hundred forty exceptionally fit for so early in the season. It was a good fight, with the Sophs and Seniors nip and tuck for first place, and the Juniors a dangerous third. It ended at last with victory for the Sophomores with a score of 42 points to the Seniors ' 33, the Juniors ' 33, and the Freshmen ' s 21. Green- wood was the largest point winner, with Stever, Wolford, Buckman and Hovey tied for second honors. Stever nipped one fifth of a second off the record for the 220-yard dash, and Greenwood took two-fifths of a second from the high hurdle record. Unfortunately for " Chet " his time was not allowed because he knocked down a hurdle. The meet with Davis Agg ies on April 15th followed. They sent 15 men against our men on Mackay field but succeeded in collecting only 80 points to Nevada ' s 92. A high wind in the face of the runners slowed up the time in most of the events, but the meet as a whole was very exciting and interesting. Two more records went by the board when Root jumped 22 feet 8 8-4 inches, beating his old record of 22 feet, 1 8-4 inches, and Greenwood ran the high hurdles in 16 1-5 seconds. Although the meet was one-sided it furnished a good tryout for the big four-cornered meet on the coast. After putting the team through two weeks of hard training with competition tightening, Coach GlascocK selected the following men to represent Nevada on April 29 against the California Freshmen, Davis and St. Mary ' s in the final meet of the season: Melarkey, Hovey, mile run; Pennel, Root, Healy, 100 yard dash ; Hopkins, Martin, Stever, 440 dash ; Greenwood, 120 yard hurdles ; Melarkey, Organ, Brown, 2 mile run ; Hovey, Chism, 880 yard; Pennel, Jones, 220 yard hurdles; Stever, King, Healy, 220 yard dash ; Hill, Wolford, hammer throw ;Wolf ord, pole vault ; Buck- man, Hill, Wolford, shot put; Buckman, Greenwood, high jump; Root, Greenwood, Pennel, Hill, broad jump; Stever, King, Martin, Hopkins, relay team. With full confidence of victory up to the last moment the team missed first place by only a few points. The little god Luck seemed to be against them at every turn. Two or three of the men were not up to form, and others were unfortunate in drawing poor positions at the mark. The meet was marked by a spectacular run made by Hopkins in the relay race when he brought Nevada colors from the rear and almost beat the first man out in a fighting finish. The score was: California Freshmen, 53 1-5; Nevada, 47 8-5 ; Davis, 15 1-5, and St. Mary ' s, 6. one hundred forty-one Two years ago, Coach Glascock started his first wresthng class with six men enrolled. The training hours were difficult and the squad small, made so by the interference of basketball and track. The six men worked hard, but only one man, Howard Browne, was sent to the Coast to represent Nevada in the P. A. A. Conference. When Browne returned, he brought with him the title of Champion in the 115-pound division. The first match with De Chene, Browne won in eight minutes, fifteen seconds. In the finals with Grindowsky he held his man to the floor for fifteen minutes, thus winning the P. A. A. gold medal. The squad for this year has been small with Browne the only man showing intercollegiate ability. The P. A. A. Conference will be held in San Francisco again this year, and Browne is working hard to get in proper shape. The matches will be difficult because wrestling has taken a big step forward in Coast sportdom. The A. A. U. Championships will be held in Portland and Browne intends to enter. With the experience he will gain in the P. A. A. matches, he feels sure of success. Howard Browne t one hundred forty-two liiiMii ' Wom ns De sk l Da.ll iWIIIHiiHiHii illB A LTHOUGH, in 1915, the A. S. U. N. voted " no women ' s intercollegiate basketball, " this year the co-eds gave such promise of a good team % that a game was scheduled with Mills College. An experienced coach was engaged and practice began early in January. From the first, material was plentiful, rivalry keen, and practice hard. The interclass games served as try-outs for Varsity aspirants. A complete series could not be played because full Junior and Senior teams could not be obtained. In the Sophomore-Freshman game, the second-year 1917 Women ' s Basketball Team one hundred forty-three girls were victors, duplicating the previous year ' s performance. The series went to the Sophomores by default. If the series next year is won by the Sophomores they will get possession of the girls ' basketball trophy cup. February 21, the team left for Mills College, in no wise confident of success. A strong team and a strange court leave little room for hope, but Nevada pluck gave us the game, 18 to 6. And the six points were scored by Mills on fouls only. The girls taking the trip were : Capt. Hulda Shartel, center; Mary Martin, Lora Lamberson, forwards; Isabel Slavin, Catherine Kemper, guards; May Kimball, Helen Mitchell, side guards; Jimmie Odbert, substitute. By the success of this year ' s team and the abundance of material for another team of equal or better calibre next year, women ' s intercollegiate basketball is once more established as a minor sport, with the promise of a larger and better schedule of games for 1918. WOMEN ' S N SOCIETY The Women ' s N Society was originated five years ago by those women interested in basketball and members of the Varsity team. Any person became a member who had played through one-half of an intercollegiate basketball game. When women ' s intercollegiate basketball was discontinued, this ogan- ization became inactive. But this year ' s enthusiasm and success demanded a renewal of existence of the society. With four old members as a nucleus, the society reorganized with the following officers : JUANITA Frey, President Elsie Humphreys, Vice-President Edith Taylor, Secretary Ruth McKissick, Treasurer The members entering this year are: Hulda Shartel, Mary Martin, Lora Lamberson, Isabel Slavin, Catherine Kemper, May Kimball and Helen Mitchell. one hundred forty-four Thomas Edsall Lawrence O ' Rouike Eugene Bell Edward Berg- Herbert Bruce Henry Rhodes August Berning, Jr. Clay Willis George Malone Edgar Caffrey George Ogilvie Tom Jones Frank Harriman Howard Cameron Jack Wright Albert Cahlan Howard Browne Alec McKenzie Francis Martin Jens Jensen William Stiekney Fred Winegar Clement Caffrey Rufus Ogilvie one hundred forty-six SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON Founded at the University of Alabama in 1856 Nevada Alpha Chapter — Established in 1917 FACULTY Richard Brown GRADUATES Frederick F.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: All students are created with an abhorrence for work and an insatiable love for clean sport, and they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among: which are, that no student shall be required to drudge, out of mere compliance to a profes- sor ' s will, and that every student has a right to have 100 per cent pleasure for a period of four years at this institution. The history of the present Faculty at the University is a history of re- peated insults, exactions and in- juries, all having as a direct object the establishment of absolute tyranny over our pleasures and pas- times. To prove this, lets facts be submitted to a candid world: They have refused to allow over three cuts in any one subject on penalty of suspension. They have refused to serve refreshments to the cadets while on long and arduous tramps over the hot sands of Nevada. They have condoned the action of one of their number, who has refused us the use of the Library for any other purpose than that of mere study and reading, and even this paltry privilege has been de- nied to those of us who have at- tempted to use our inalienable rights of free speech and laughter, without which any group of people may as well be dead. They have imposed taxes upon us to an enormous amount, and even though the Laboratory courses for which they have been used have been flunked, those taxes have in no instance ever been returned to us. They have, on Fridays, given us lessons to pi ' epare for the follow- ing Monday, when they have abso- lutely known that the intei ' vening time social duties. has been taken up with our one hundred eighty They have ruled that no man student can visit with his lady friends at Manzanita Hall after 8:00 p. m. This one act in itself is enough to drive loving souls to rebellion. They have incited domestic insurrection among those of us who live at the Commons by not allov ing more than six grains of coffee in one gallon of water. They have combined with the Board of Regents for suspending our own legislature and declaring themselves invested with the power to legislate for us in all matters of vital importance to the University. They have refused to abolish the Chemistry Department and as a direct result our aesthetic sense of smell along with our mucous membranes have been permanently injured. A Faculty whose character is thus marked by everv act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free body of students. We therefore make this solemn declaration of our final separation from our former Faculty and cast our defiiance in their teeth. Co-educational Racing!
