CLARK - The Artemisia 1921 i FOREWORD |HIS University year has been a year of records. It has recorded far the largest enrollment of the University ' s history, largest enroll- ment in grand total, 709, in total for the regular University year, apart from all short courses, 556, and in the total of students for the regular University year from Nevada ' s own schools, 336. Each of these figures records in its class that appreciable but not overwhelming growth which our University needs. If the same absolute growth is continued, September of 1 922 will bring the enrollment limitation policy of the University into opera- tion, for it will bring an enrollment of 6C ' 0 or more regular students for the semester then beginning. The year has recorded the completion of two important new campus build- ings. No other year of the University ' s history has ever dedicated two main buildings or has ever witnessed the expenditure of so large a sum in permanent buildings. The beautiful Education building suggests clearly the new west line of the academic quadrangle and stands as a fair model for the other three buildings which will eventually come to complete the west and east sides of this academic quadrangle, as the Regents are now planning it. The Mines Experiment building completes the housing for the expanded mining work of the campus, affording as it does ample space for experimental work in rare and the precious metals for the whole United States. The year records the arrival upon our campus of two new and nationally important Federal agencies, the Mining Experiment Station and the Federal Wireless Station. The Experiment Stat ion staff of experts will serve not only Nevada but the whole nation through their researches into the mysteries of rare and precious metals. The quality of the Staff is evidenced by the fact that their leader, the Superintendent of our new Station, is one of the nation ' s three or four greatest experts in radium; the perfection of the equipment of the new Station is evidenced by the fact that six box car loads of specialized machinery is now being placed in the new building. One little but mighty item of this unusual equipment consists of a small case containing six tubes of radium valued at over $60,000. Such men, with such equipment, will be sure to add lustre to the University ' s crown. The year in which the National government sent such a rare combination to our campus is made notable by this event alone. Not satisfied with such honor won, the year also drew the Federal Wireless Station to our campus hill. Every day magic messages defy space as this ,. — 4. The Artemisia 1921 V " — — 1 I wireless plant cooperates with the government air service. The wireless labora- tory being installed in connection with this station gives another campus open door into a new field of science — an open door for both students and faculty members prepared to enter this realm in which men of daring imagination are weekly achieving new impossibilities. The year records steady upward scholarship trend. With the rising en- rollment and the continuous betterment of University plant and equipment, faculty and students unite in believing that the main work of the University should steadily improve. Higher and more exacting standards for scholarship measurement have been established during the year and the standards already set have been more relentlessly en forced. Certain progress has been made toward that early coming time when good scholarship will be the rule and the shame of the slacker will rest on every student who neglects his main job. Not the least significant event of this great University year was the placing of Nevada ' s University on its approved list by the Association of American Uni- versities. Word of this approval of Nevada ' s rising scholarship standards by America ' s most exacting standardizing authority came last December. In every college of the University this year records definite progress. Arts and Science is alive with plans for more definite work requirement for its diplomas and for its special pre-professional courses and is proud of the rising standards of thoroughness in teacher training which are being set during this first year of its newly reorganized School of Education. Agriculture has widened its offerings of thorough courses scientifically grounding agricultural leaders and calls attention to the strengthening of its homemaking work for the women students enrolled in its School of Home Economics. Engineering, too, moves and moves rapidly. This is the first year in many that the Staff of this College has been complete. Some new equipment has been installed and shops and laboratories have been put into far better working condition than ever be- fore. This College has received special benefits from the coming of the Min- ing Experiment Station and the Federal Wireless plants. Strong as has been the Engineering division of the University in the past years, this division records its highest tide in this year. The general University faculty and its committees have been unusually active and plans are afoot still better to adjust curriculum offerings to the new needs. The year records another Champions-of-the-West Varsity Basket Ball five, a Varsity football season that won general favorable recognition and climaxed with special matched games with America ' s farthest-west University and with Hawaii ' s selected athletic club team, and a Women ' s Varsity basket ball team which made a most creditable season ' s showing. In addition to these unusual achievements in athletics, the year records the first step taken in a program for completing the physical education work of the University. When +,.- + " — " — " —— " ' The Artemisia 1921 «r 4.„_.._. „ xhe Artemisia 1921 — ' — ■ ♦ fully developed, this program will schedule all men and women of the student body to receive both such theoretical and such practical training in the sane laws of body-building as will give them right health habits and will make them effective citizen promoters of family and of community hygiene. The Military training is being developed most ably to cooperate wher ever it touches this phy- sical education program and the Hospital Association is most successfully com- pleting the second year of applied hygienic service to the whole student body. Along with the hard work and in the reasonably frequent intervals between stretches of straight work, the Campus generally has enjoyed life. Class, fra- ternity, sorority, dormitory and faculty social events have been happy, red- letter affairs. The many student organizations have been alert and busy in plans to better the campus conditions and the college life. Another national fraternity has established a chapter in our University. The debaters, the actors and actresses of the University plays, the editors and managers of the college publications, the Block N and Gothic N hosts and hostesses of the largest num- ber of visiting high school teams in our history — all have contributed to enrich the campus life. There have been some mistakes but they have been errors of exuberance and not outcroppings of either unsocial or anti-social spirit. On the whole, we have been happy, cooperant, friendly in all our relations. Yes — he who runs may read and reading, know that this has been a record year at our University. WALTER E. CLARK.

The Artemisia 1921 -»— ALUMNI ASSOCIATION HAT is the University of Nevada Alumni Association doing in 1921 ? This question comes to the mind of every old " grad " who takes the last Artemisia in his hand and begins to turn the pages. For his thoughts are harking back to the " good old days " when he was one or the fellows going to school and things were done " right. " And he finds himself picturing the campus as it " used to be " and then of the changes which the years have wrought. But in his heart is still the love for his Alma Mater and a pride in the knowledge that he is one of her sons. Well, what has the University of Nevada Alumni Association been doing? First of all, trying to solve a great big problem — a problem that for the past five years has been growing more and more significant — the problem of the lack of cooperation and coordination among the members. In 1894 four people met, formulated plans, drew up a constitution, and founded the University of Nevada Alumni Association. Today its member- ship exceeds six hundred and they are scattered far and wide throughout this old world of ours. The members, living in Reno, because they feel more vitally the need of a closer organization, met in April, 1 920 and took what they believe to be a pro- gressive step and one which will ultimately benefit the institution. At this meet- ing they organized a branch association to be called the University of Nevada Alumni Association of Reno. The following officers were elected: Mrs. Prince Catlin, president; Mrs. Albert Cahlan, vice-president; Miss Laura Ambler, secretary; Mrs. Albert Saxon, treasurer. These officers, in addition to the duties regularly imposed upon them constitute a general executive committee. The objects of this branch organization are three-fold. Primarily, the aim is to promote thorough cooperation with the genera! alumni association of the University of Nevada, the welfare of the University by forming a closer fellowship among the alumni living in this district. The second aim is to form a closer bond between the alumni and the students, particularly the seniors. And the third, by active support, both financial and moral, to further all undertakings of the University. In order to fulfill this last provision the organization took steps to organize a campaign for funds to be used as a sinking fund for the general association. This is a vital issue and one which deserves the consideration of each loyal +...- - — " — » ' The Artemisia 1921 alumnus. Every organization needs funds, and surely the University of Nevada Alumni Association can build up such a fund so that the organization can operate successfully in carrying out its policies. Early next fall a big carnival is to be held down town and the proceeds will constitute the begmnmg of this sinking fund. So — " grads old and young — by your interest and support let us make 1921 the beginnmg of a new era in the history of the Alumni Association at the Universitv of Nevada— our Alma Mater.

ALUMNI jOLLEGE days are much the same for all of us whether they were days in the nineties or those just a year past. We have all gone through similar pranks, studied, more or less, in the same way, played the same games, and cheered or fought with the same un- dying spirit for good old Nevada. Then after graduation our classes have been scattered to four directions, we have all gone out to serve, few have returned, but all remember and give credit to sacred Alma Mater. We would all like to have a reunion, or the next best thing, a roll call of all graduates from the Class of ' 9 1 to the Class of ' 2 1 , but time, space and lack of information prevent us from checking up on all of our classmates in this way. There is a fine big family of Nevada graduates and we point with pride to the University of Nevada for the excellent men and women it gives to the service of the State and United States, beginning with Frank H. Norcross of the Class of ' 91, down on thru to the members of the Class of ' 20 where we find them just beginning to help solve the problems of the times. Nevada is not narrow in her training for we find her graduates in every field of life, scattered to many of the far countries. There is Albert Lewers ' 92 in the U. S. Patent Office in the Department of Chemistry in Washington; James F. Abel ' 01 who is Chief Clerk in the Bureau of Education in Wash- ington ; David W. Hays ' 00 who has been very successful in an irrigation pro- ject in Canada; Tom Lawrence ' 99 a Mining Engineer in Mexico; Anna Martin ' 94 who is noted as a Suffrage leader, and who is taking an active part in politics, and Emmet D. Boyle ' 99 who has made one of the most progres- sive and prominent Governors Nevada has ever had. Besides those already mentioned, those who have been active in the field of politics are: Delle B, Boyd ' 99 who was Republican Presidential Elector for the State of Nevada ; Harry E. Stewart ' 94 who is now the Mayor of the City of Reno; William Kearney ' 04 who ran very well for Republican candidate for Governor, is now practicing law in Reno. Irwin W. Ayers ' 01 and Harold Louderback ' 04 are both prominent lawyers on the coast. George Spring- meyer ' 02 is practicing law in Reno and is a strong supporter of the University. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Peterson (nee Helen Fulton) ' 07 and ' 10 are in Illinois where Mr. Peterson is working for the Holt Manufacturing Co. Robert Ostrof f ' 15 is in business with his father, practicing medicine in Reno, and is the doctor employed by the Associated Students to attend all cases at the PAGE 27 T i Artemisia 1921 University. Fred Delongchamps ' 04 is one of Nevada ' s most prominent archi- tects and has designed our new buildings on the campus. Charles A. Norcross ' 08 is the Director of the Agricultural Extension work for Nevada. Of thooe who have distinguished themselves m educational work are Bertha Kneymeyer ' 06 who is principal of the High School in Elko, and Tillie Kruger who is a County Superintendent of Schools in California. We find Nevada graduates on the Faculty. They are Cecil Creel ' 11, Agricultural Extension Staff; Walter Palmer ' 05, Professor of Minmg; Stanley Palmer ' 09, Professor m the Electrical Engineering Department; Miss Margaret Mack ' 10, Dean of Women and Professor in the Biology Department; Miss Katherine Riegel- huth ' 97, Professor in the German and English Departments. Among those who have distinguished themselves m mining activities are: Dudley Holmes ' 10; Fred Linscott ' 96; Tom Lawrence ' 99; Marcus Bradshaw ' 03. These are only a few of those who have kept in touch with the University. We wish we could give a complete record for Nevada graduates are superior comrades and we hate to lose track of any of them. In calling the roll of the Class of ' 20 we find more have followed the pro- fession of teaching than any other. Avis Lothrop is teaching at Yerington; Adele Armstrong at Lovelock ; Marion Hotten in New Mexico ; Salome Rilej ' at Franktown; Jimmie Odbert at Cedarville, California; Marie Sweetman in Idaho; Rachel Sprague in Colorado, and Phyllis Brown in Virginia City. Six of the class were married : Helen Cahill to Tom Jones, both of the Class of ' 20; their home is in Toledo, Ohio, where Tom is working for the J. P. Dough- erty Electrical Co.; Harold O ' Brien was married and is now working in Mc- Gill; Veva Campbell Davis was married before graduation, her home is now in Reno; Alice Kincaid Jones has her home in Seattle since her marriage last summer; Mildred Griswold Scott was married during the summer, her home being in Elko. Lee Scott, Vernon Organ and Andrew Aitkens are with the General Electric Company in New York while Tom Jones, Al Cahlan and Kenyon Olmsted are with the J. P. Dougherty Electrical Co. " Al " is in Oklahoma and Olmsted is in Colorado. John Belford is finishing his law course at Harvard. Harry Capper is getting a degree in mining at Nevada this year. Paul Hornaday is attending Stanford. Herbert Bruce and Bill Shearer are both working for electrical companies — Herb is in Connecticut and Bill is in Northern California. Ameglio Andrucetti is in the bakery business in Reno. Nels Carlsen is working for the Pacific Gas and Electric Co. m Oakland. Morris Badt is in Las Vegas during road construction work. Earl Borchert and John Patterson are farming. Earl in Fallon and John in Elko. Nellie Mc- — " " — " " — " " - The Artemisia 1921 - Williams is attenting a secretarial school in Los Ang eles.

The fight has been long and hard and many have fallen by the wayside, but the class of nineteen twenty-one has struggled for- ward and, victorious, is about to emerge, fullfledged, to assume the duties of life. Four years ago we received our registration cards in Morrill Hall and be- came fully established and accredited Freshmen. Looking back from our present vantage point we can see the mistakes that we have made and that, although we thought different at the time, we were as green as any Freshmen class which has ever entered the University. We made up for our short comings with an added amount of pep and spirit that has always mad e the class of nineteen twenty-one a leader on the Hill, In accordance with tradition we engaged in our street fights, the dummy rush, the poster fight and the cane rush with the Sophomores. Success seemed to follow us everywhere, for we emerged victorious in every encounter. With the end of the class battles we settled down to the more sober work which was our purpose here. We continued victorious, however, and completed our series of victories by winning the inter-class championships in basket ball and track. The next year our ranks were somewhat depleted by the great war. Many entered the army training camps and navy while others entered war work. Even with such a handicap we proved more than a match for the Freshmen and in the cane rush we won the right to disport canes and white vests; the first PAGE 33 _.._„_.._.._.._ 77r Artemisia 1921 " —-— •— «- — — ■■-+ time in many years that the privilege had been won. We still bear the dis- tinction of being the only class on the Hill which has this honor. During that Fall a unit of the S. A. T. C. was established at the University and every male member of the class not physically disqualified immediately enlisted. The quarantme cuased by the influenza epidemic hindered our campus life consider- ably. This quarantine lasted for several months, and when it was finally lifted it seemed that we were being let out of prison. At last, when the clouds of war were over and sun shined once more upon the earth, we began to settle back to our pre-war status. Durmg the Junior year our ranks once more began to fill with men who had answered their country ' s call and entered the army, and with their aid coupled with our two years experience, we were able to carry on the work which we had begun as Freshmen. Now, more than ever, the class of nmeteen twenty-one upheld the traditions of the University and instilled into the incoming classes the spirit and ideals for which Nevada has always been noted. Throughout our entire University career the class of nineteen twenty-one has been a leader in all activities on the Hill. We are extremely proud of the members of our class who have excelled in athletics. Through their own skill they have brought honor not only to themselves but to the University. The class of nineteen twenty-one has placed more men on varsity teams than any other class now in school. Socially, too, our class has always been a leader and has been the host of many affairs that will live long in the memories of those who were fortunate enough to be present. We set the precedent when we were Freshmen that our formal dance was better than that of any other class and we have finally adhered to that precedent and each dance that we have given has bettered all that have preceded it. Perhaps the most memorable dance that the class has ever given was the forty-nine dance given in our Sophomore year. And now as Seniors, we are happy that we have reached the goal toward which we have been working for the last four years and towards which we have been looking for many years. But this same happiness is intermingled with the regret that we must leave the friends and surroundings which have meant so much to us during our years spent here at the University. We feel that we have done credit to the University and although our class yell will be silent and our deeds will be but memories, we sincerely hope that the classes of the future will point with pride to the achievements of the class of twenty-one. +»_,. - The Artemisia 1921 Noble Waite Frances Rainier Arthur Harms FRANCES RAINIER .

' 22 was a " war class, " being largely composed of men m the S. A. T. C, who left college when that body was disbanded, so that the class has been a very small one, but has made up for its lack of size by its pep and loyalty. Much to our disappointment, by a ruling of the Upperclass Commit- tee, the dummy-rush and tieups were eliminated during the first year; but as the cane-rush remained the class concentrated on that. In spite of our efforts the superior knowledge of the Sophomores concerning cane-rushes won the day for them. The class almost recovered its lost glory in a football contest, for the final whistle blew just as the ball neared the goal of the second year men. The second semester is remembered by the battle over a mule painted with the numerals of the Sophomores, in which green paint seemed to be the main method of defense. The Frosh Glee was one of the biggest social events of the semester, having been surpassed by none since. As Sophomores the class of ' 22 returned to college, small but enthusiastic. Might overcame right and the superior numbers of the Freshmen class won them the cane-rush. However, the superior mentality of the Sophomores se- cured them a draw in the dummy-rush. The posters distributed around the campus were to be classed among the seven wonders of the world and the Frosh gamed a liberal education through reading them. In the second semester the class basketball championship was won by ' 22, - The Artemisia 1921 the Seniors forfeiting the final game, but ' 22 was confident of victory had it ever been played. This last year the class reached the height of the upperclassmen, corduroys and stove-pipe hats being prominent. ' 22 has had representatives in every activity. Several of the most prominent athletic men are members of ' 22, and socially the standard set in the Freshmen year has been well kept, for the Junior Prom of this year will long be remembered as one of the most success- ful dances held in the gym. In looking back over the record of the Junior class we are proud to see how much we have accomplished. In looking forward we see the large amount of work that there is yet for us to accomplish before finishing the last lap of the race. We hope that next year the class of ' 22 may look back on as successful an ending to their college as the beginning. ■f-,,,,- • PI NN— RH— The Artemisia 1921 Robert Griffith Hazel Murray Editha Brown Philip Frank ROBERT B.

It seemed that some had wandered too far for only a handfull of the first year members answered " here " and our ranks were as depleted as the German hordes after the St. Mihiel drive. But, even though we could not bring back all the same old crowd, we did bring back the same old spirit, the same old desire to do our " derndest " for our class and for our University. Our battle cry was " let ' s go! " and we did. From the start of the first night rushes to the end of the school year, ' 23 has been on the jump, has put its shoulders to the wheel and has done its level best to make Nevada the top stone of the pyramid of western universities. Our little handfull of warriors gathered at McKinley Park on the night of September 8 and brought with them three things, five hundred posters, a bucket of white paste and a carload of determination. It was a big night and a big job that we had to do but before the grey streaks of early dawn, the thing was done. Sidewalks, bridges, window panes and even the roofs of the campus buildings were plastered with the baboon features of the inflooding Frosh and the quad in front of the Engineering Building was reeking with the blood and with the tattered bits of the clothing of the valiant warriors who had met there. The odds were four to one in favor of the " babes " but, with superior stratetgy and better organization, ' 23 succeeded in keeping the enemy so engrossed in the lust of battle that not one of the Frosh had the time or inclination to desert their comrades and tear down the hundreds of gay colored posters which so artistically decorated the campus. On the following Saturday we again met our rivals, but this time the odds were too great and we were forced to suffer defeat beneath an overwhelming -.. - The Artemisia 1921 ..-+ mass of first year men who swarmed over our fallen ranks. Although we lost this fight, the cane rush, we did not loose a single ounce of the old ' 23 spirit and on November 6 we had a chance to exemplify it. It was between the halves of the Nevada-Utah Aggie gridiron struggle. The excited crowd in the bleachers was cheering lustily for the home team, auto horns were rendering a wierd melody of discord, and the brass band was trying to play " Yankee Doodle " to the tune of " How Dry I am. " Everybody was happy and chuck full of the spirit of " give them hell Nevada, " when suddenly two strange and screeching processions raced onto the field. One was leading a wall-eyed, raggy-haired looking bag of bones of the jackass variety whose sides were decorated with the emblazoned numerals of ' 23. The other was in mad pur- suit of a diminutive pig whose greasy back flaunted a smeared ' 24. The gangs howled defiance at each other, the jackass brayed, the pig squealed and the light was on. For fifteen minutes torn neckties, ragged shirts, trouser seats and what-nots were flying like feathers. On Saturday night, October 23, we gave our formal dance — the Sopho- more Hop. The big barn of a gymnasium looked as though a fairy god- mother had touched it with a magic wand in which were stored all the ancient splendors and the fantastic glories of the Orient. A medley of green, blue and white streamers was interspersed with gorgeously hued lanterns, Nippon um- brellas and mellow colored lights. A pale moon dappled the floor in shifting beams, and brought to the dancers the tone and the thoughts of romance. On February 12 of the new year, just when the advance guard of spring was chasing the ice and snow toward the north pole, and into the hearts of youth was creeping the first faint whispering of his royal highness — Sir Daniel Cupid — ' 23 joined in the rollicking spirit of the day and threw a wicked skid — the " forty-nine " dance. Did you ever hear of it, or rather can you ever forget ! it? The hall with its saddle-strewn corral; the old prospector ' s tent; the ancient j guns, relics of Indian war days; the Apex Bar, where rough hewn cow- punchers downed red " licker " to the health of the bar maids; the noise of the six-guns; the smell of sagebrush mixed with pungent powder smoke; the yells of the shot and the half-shot, the cheers, the holdups, the weenies, the bullet holes in the floor — remember them all? — Oh, boy, I ' ll say we do! That ' s what we ' ve done socially and we ' ve done as much otherwise. Sophomores were on the Varsity Eleven and the Varsity Quintet. Sophomores will be on the track squad; Sophomores beat the B. Y. U. in the intercol- legiate debates, and Sophomores will represented Nevada against the College of Pacific. In our every endeavor we ' ve tried to live up to our motto and we proudly but not boastfully say that we believe we have, for in our words and in our actions its always been " let ' s go.

Like young owls, and in spite of the foolish dinks we had to wear, nothing has escaped our learning. We ' ve virtually made the old school stand on end with astonishment, and the wise and near wise suffered tremendous shock when they found a percentage of our babes on the honor roll. At last, having reached the very discreet age of one college year, we are allowed to do some of our own thinking (which will unquestionably prove to be of the highest in- tellectual order) . The distracting days of registration were hardly over, and we had scarcely had time for a peaceful contemplation of the campus when marked hostilities began between the Sophs and ' 24. The fighting continued for days, and at last culminated in the pitched battle called the " cane rush. " Although it would have shown brotherly love on our part to have allowed the Sophs the victory, we couldn ' t altogether disregard our self respect, so Mackay Field witnessed the fall of the mighty (?). It was a glorious victory for ' 24, it brought out several future gridiron heroes, was a decided boon for Lewis Lukey and other downtown merchants who sell shirts, and our class spirit re- ceived such a terrific charge that we were kept running on high for quite a long time. Thus ended one of the world ' s decisive battles, and every one was satis- fied except the Sophs — they grieved for months over the trampled lawn. Each semester we have performed the worthy act of electing a class presi- dent and other officers — each in due season being conceded the honor of serving our most excellent class as guides and guardians of our " Ship of State " . The first siege of presidency was ably weathered by Harold Hughes, assisted I ..—.4. m +. — - The Artemisia 1921 — ...+ by Vice-President Merle LeMaire, Treasurer Ogden Monahan, and Secre- tary Letitia Sawle. Though the second semester was somewhat less strenuous than the first, the offices were quite capably filled by George Duborg, president ; Hortense Haughney, vice-president; Tom Griswold, treasurer, and Dorothy Middleton, secretary. At the first important meeting under the trusty steerage of Hughes, we planned our " hay-ride, " the success of which was the second great blow to our arch-enemies — the ' 23 ' s. The V. T. " yellow peril " was chartered for our special demolishment, and one Thursday night we, having cleverly outwitted the drowsy Sophs, secretly boarded the train and howled triumphantly away on our trip to Bower ' s Mansion. With us, bound and shackled, several " snoopy " Sophs stormed helplessly, while behind us, com- panions of these " near-wise " clawed the air and bit their nails in deepest anguish — foiled again ! We had scarcely been back overnight when the upper class committee descended upon us with stern commands to white wash the " N " , so away we went again, and did a very fine job of it according to all authorities — particularly ' 23. Socially we have been quite a success, even if we do say it ourselves. Our Frosh Glee was almost worthy of place in history, and we displayed re- markable ability in dramatics, for five of the cast of " Bunker Bean " were of ' 24 extraction. We ' ve dabbled considerably in basket ball — both boys and girls — even to the extent that we started George Duborg and Dewey Goodwin on their way to national fame, and put Helen Cordes and Genevieve Morgan on the girls Varsity. We have been represented in everything! We must have eaten at least one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four yards of hot dogs and consumed all of twenty-four hundred gallons of coffee and as many dozen greasy doughnuts. We ' ve spread an awful lot of red paint, done a lot of rough- housing, and caused a lot of entertainment by deliberately being thrown into the duck pond for the amusement of the upper-classmen, so now, with everything before us and a glorious " rep " behind us we live in expectation of what we will do next year. ■= ■ I - The Artemisia 1921 ' W Si W - ' S ' ' ' - ' • ' ' ' S- . .:;:;-- --:. i ® +._..

From nearly every state in the Union and from many foreign countries, men have come to attend the University and to make their home in Lincoln Hall. It is indeed a home, and a pleasant one, for those who are not fortunate enough to have their family with them, here in Reno. Everything has run very smoothly in the Hall under the guidance of Mayor Harker and Professor Turner, with a few exceptions when the tub had to be filled for the chastisement of some un- ruly Frosh. The Hall has been filled to its capacity throughout the year and there have been men on the waiting list ready to take the place of any who might possibly leave. Among the men in the Hall there is a great deal of talent which evinced itself stunt night when the older men were entertained by the new men with music, songs and other festivities. Stunt night is always looked forward to with expectation, as it is one of the nights of the year in which books are cast aside and hilarity reigns supreme. The social activities of the Hall this year have been much better than in preceding years, due to the greater number of men. The second annual dance was given November 6 and proved to be one of the most successful affairs of the season. This date was also the first annual homecoming day, during which the alumni of the University returned to the scenes of their college days to renew old acquaintances and form new ones among the later classes. The big affair of the second semester was the annual Hall party, given to the girls of Manzanita by the men of Lincoln Hall. On this night all the rooms were thrown open for prying eyes of the girls and needless to say they would have passed a strenuous military inspection. After everyone had been shown +-.. PAGE 75 - The Artemisia 1921 i through the rooms, a short entertainment was given. The floor was then cleared for dancing and the Hght fantastic was tripped to the music of a jazz orchestra until a late hour, when refreshments were served. This ended one of the most enjoyable hall parties given in many years. In years to come, as we follow life ' s pathway, we will look back upon the years spent in Lincoln Hall, and wish that we could live them over again. We will think of the " sessions " and " feeds " and perhaps of the pipe fests, and wonder how time passes so rapidly and if ever such enjoyable years will come to us again. In a day to come, where ere you may roam You will think of the days of yore. And thoughts again of a brick red den Will knock at your memories door. As your thoughts return and your heart strings burn For the days that were best of all You will think of the fests, with their jokes and jests In dear old Lincoln Hall. ♦— — - The Artemisia 1921 «— " -♦ LINCOLN HALL Edward Benson William Carter Leopoldo Abad Rolph Brown James Byrkit Soren Christensen Dewey Conrad Francis Walsh Lyn Arnold Francis Damrell Evan Davies Harold Eraser George Gooding Howard Westervelt Elliott Adams Henry Ahlers Richard Barber Jacinto Batungbakal James Brennan Frey Brown Raymond Carroll Harry Clinton Lloyd Coates Walter Cox Foster Curtis Edward Dollard William Eccleston Theodore Elges Frank Fanning William Fong LeRoy Fothergill SENIORS John Gottardi Ernest Metscher JUNIORS John Donovan Earl Hammond Ernest Harker Arthur Harrison John Philbin SOPHOMORES Ellis Harmon Walker Havens Orren Oden Hans Lohse Eric Otto FRESHMEN Leo Gloster Dewey Goodwin William Green Bernhard Hammert Lewis Hardy Earl Hearne Ira Herbert John Horn Ock Jee John Jepson Ennis Kinselli Willard Larson Merton Lyster Murdock McLeod James MacDonald Julius Molina Stillman Magee Robert Pierce Gavin Yater Eldon Wittwer Woodfred Romig Lynne Ronnow George Smolak Noble Waite John Wall Charles Witter Lawrence Quill John Ross Melvin Sanders Harry Steele Louis Titus Ned Martin John Miller Carl Nelson Edgar Norton Ray Parker Ottoway Peck Robert Plaus Walter Reimers Leslie Sanford William Sawle Chris Sherrin Clinton Smith Mathew Speck William Thomas William Thompson Carl Wahlund Dewey Wheeler PAGE 77 .._.+ The Artemisia 1921 ■— " — ,1, „n im im „|| ,,!„ „„ ,„ ,„„ j, _ . — The Artemisia 1921 MANZANITA HALL ASSOCIATION Helen Fuss.

Life at Manzanita is something that the members of L. F. G. will never forget and will always be cherished among their many happy memories of college days. The Manzanita Hall Association is carried on for the purpose of governmg the students in the hall. The students make their rules and regulations and the executive committee sees that the rules are carried out. The executive committee is ably advised by Miss Margaret E. Mack, Dean of Women, and Miss Helena Shade, her assistant. Thirty-seven new members were initiated into L. F. G. last semester and seventy-two girls in all call Manzanita home. Manzanita hospitality made it possible for the members of the visiting high school basket ball teams and tennis teams to be kept and entertained on the campus during the State high school tournaments. It also opens its doors to all the students and faculty at its regular Friday afternoon teas which are given by the classes in rotation. The Association may always be depended to back loyally all college under- takings and activities. graduates Margaret E.

Upon registration and the payment of the athletic fee, every student automatically becomes a member of the association with full voting power at all meetings, which are held monthly for the transaction of business. The or- ganization has direct control of all student body finances and property, and besides governing athletics and other student activities, is responsible for the publication of " The U. of N. Sagebrush, " the weekly newspaper, " The " Arternisia, " the college annual, and the " Handbook. " The powers of the association are vested in an Executive Committee, con- sisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the A. S. U. N., the Women ' s Athletic Manager, and one representative each from the Junior and Sophomore classes. These officers, together with the Ath- letic Manager, Editor and Manager of " The Sagebrush, " Editor and Man- ager of the " Artemisia " are elected at the close of the college year by the mem- bers of the Associated Students, and take office at the beginning of the Fall semester. The year 1920-21 has been a remarkable one for the A. S. U. N. in a great many respects and has seen the fulfillment of many cherished hopes and aspirations. Membership in the association was the largest in the history of the University, and the enthusiastic attendance at meetings and rallies was but a forecast of the splendid support to be given by the students in all movements for a " bigger and better Nevada. " The football and basketball seasons just passed have proven, without a doubt, Nevada ' s ability to produce athletic teams which rank with the best in ♦_,. " " - The Artemisia 1921 the country. From west to east, the Varsity teams have appeared, and at every place, have made a name for themselves. The football trip to the Ha- waiian Islands and the basketball trip to the national championships at Kansas City, aie notable examples of the standing of Nevada teams. Dramatics, de- bate, social affairs and other phases of college life have added their share to the season ' s success and made this year, one long to be remembered by all. The revival of the traditional student body visit to the State Legislature, the State High School basketball tournament, the miniature reproduction of football games from play by play telegraph reports, and the construction of a first class football scoreboard, are but a few examples of what has been accomplished by the students of the University of Nevada during the past year. +» ..

Chatfield Vice-President Dewey Conrad Secretary Russell Boardman Treasurer I A. E. or the American Association of Engineers has enjoyed a phenomenal growth since its comparatively recent organization in 1915 — its membership now being something over thirty thousand. The organization is technical and non-technical in character and embraces the five main branches of engineering, namely : the chemical, the civil, the electrical, the merchanical, and mining. Its activities are devoted to im- proving the social and economic welfare of all engineers. At practically every university in this country having an engineering college, there is a chapter of the A. A. E. The charter for the local chapter was granted by the national chapter in December 1919. We can look back on a number of interesting and educational meetings provided for by our executive committee. This committee consists of one repre- sentative from each of the departments of chemical, civil, electrical and mechan- ical, and mining engineering, and the president of the club. The present com- mittee consists of Marc LeDuc, Richard P. Bryan, Oliver Layman, Ernest Marker, and John R. Bryan. This committee endeavored to have each depart- ment take charge of one evening. A number of local and out-of-town engi- neers addressed us on technical and non-technical phases of the engineering profession and on recent engineering problems and developments. We were also fortunate in procuring a number of films from large engineering concerns in the East. The annual Engineers ' Day was celebrated this year and the whole of the University was invited to participate and make merry with the members of the engineering college. The day is now a permanent tradition and is one to which the students look forward with pleasurable anticipation. More energy, en- thusiasm and pep was shown this year than ever before. As in the past, the engineers club has been a permanent organization on the campus ; so in the future will this club continue to grow and progress under the new name of the A. A. E. and under the slogan : " Cooperate and Advance. " PAGE 87 The Artemisia 1921 + " — The Artemisia 1921 1 COFFIN AND KEYS Founded at the Ur liversity of Nevada in 1916 Thomas Buckman V V V John R.

Their annual dance, the Aggie Ball, held in the early part of the first semester, was the first big dance of the college year. As usual it was a redletter affair. The gymnasium was decorated to represent a barn with mountains of hay and shocks of corn that lent a rural aspect to the dance. Good old hard cider and Ma ' s homemade doughnuts in large quanti- ties were consumed by the guests. During the second semester several social meetings were held in the new Agricultural Building.

Because of its membership in the Nevada Federation of Women ' s Clubs, the women students were represented at the State conference of that organization held at Minden, Nevada last October. The University was able to send four delegates, Helen Fuss, Gertrude Harris, Erma Hoskins, and Mary Shaughnessy, to represent it and decided that the time and money spent was worth the while, for the girls became acquainted with the leading club women of the State and saw the qualifications which they must strive for in order to make their after college life more successful. Immediately following this conference, the Associated Women Students, with the assistance of the Y. W. C. A., were successful in raising enough money to send two delegates to a western conference of Associated Women Students held at Pullman, Washington, November 1 1-13. This undertaking was a large one for the University, for the expenses were very heavy as Nevada was quite a distance from the meeting place of the conference. It was only through the sturdy cooperation and untiring efforts of the girls that the feat was accomplished. Margaret Barnes and Evelyn Walker represented Nevada at this conference and did all in their power to obtain suggestions from the other colleges to help them on their own campus. The problems discussed pertained not only to the women ' s organizations but to all of the organizations and activities on the campus. An intercollegiate exchange bureau was organized and an exchange office created in every Associ- The Artemisia 1921 ated Women Student ' s organization. Through the bureau the women students are hoping to be able to assist one another and to work collectively for common ends. This conference was responsible for the change of the name of the Ne- vada organization of women students from the Women ' s League to Associated Women Students. The work of the Associated Women Students is expanding into all of the phases of a girl ' s life in college. Through the conferring of a scholarship, setting up of ideals, working for common purposes, assisting the freshmen in becoming acquainted with and adapted to college life, and in backing up the women students in all of their undertakings, the Associated Women Students are attempting to make the girls ' college life bigger and more successful. The work of an organization of this character is of unlimited importance and its upbuilding means the fuller development of women and better prepara- tion for their life work after college days are over. 4. .. . . ., — Xhe Artemisia 1921 - " " — HOME ECONOMICS CLUB Anne Underwood President LoUELLA Murray..

Beemer ..Secretary -Treasurer SSOCIATED Federal Students of the University of Nevada was organized by men taking vocational training. The organization was planned along the same lines as similar organizations in many other universities, and has for its purpose the securing of co-operation of ex-service men and the Federal Board for Vocational Traming. Twenty-eight men are now taking courses at the University under the Federal Vocational Act. The men, although having a separate organization, are members of the regular student body and have proved a welcome addition to it, having taken an active part in the furthering of the various organizations on the Hill, in encouraging athletics, and have contributed greatly to the famous Nevada spirit. In addi- tion the men have sponsored a drive for the American Legion, securing the en- rollment m that organization of a large part of the University students eligible. They are also greatly interested in securing the passage of various bills now before the state and national legislatures relative to securing adjusted compen- sation for ex-service men. A large number of the men are affiliated with fra- ternities on the Hill and take an active interest in the social side of University life. Meetings of the organization are held twice each month, one of which is a social evening. An active interest has been shown by the members and the organization is well on the road to success.

The basis of membership of the Y. W. C. A. was changed last Spring at the Cleveland Convention from a church basis to a personal basis so that now the Y. W. C. A. can include members of any and all Christian religions. The University of Nevada Y. W. C. A. now includes nearly three-fourths of the women students enrolled in college. The University Y. W. C. A. has been somewhat handicapped this year due to the fact that a town organization was being formed and needed a great deal of support. The Y. W. C. A. has been very successful this year in raising money to send delegates to Y. W. C. A. conferences. Through hot-dog sales at football games, regular dues and the candy store it has raised enough money to assist the Associated Women Students in sending delegates to a Woman ' s League Conference at Pullman, Washington, and to send seven delegates to the Y. W. C. A. Mid- Year Conference at Mills Collge. Nevada was represented at this conference by Agnes Riddell, Mar- ienne Elsie, Erma Eason, Louise Grubnau, Virginia Higgins, Beulah Booth and Vera Wickland. Plans are now being made to send delegates to Asilo- mar, the Y. W. C. A. summer camp, in June. Anne Underwood and Vir- ginia Higgins represented Nevada at Asilomar last summer. On the whole, the past year has been a very successful one for the Nevada Y. W. C. A. and it i? hoped that next year will see one hundred percent of the women students of the University enrolled in this organization. _HH— NH- H PAGE 101 The Artemisia 1921 - " UNIVERSITY FIVE " N the Fall of 1 920 five University men organized an orchestra that is now known as the " University Five. " The need of such an or- ganization has long been felt for there has been none on the Hill since the war. Since its organization, the " University Five " has played for the majority of the college dances and their jazzy melodies have been welcomed by the students and faculty. Their playing has not been confined to the Hill, but they have played for many of the delightful fraternity and sorority affairs in town. The " Five " has also been liberal in donating its services for charitable affairs.

The total enrollment in the college for the school year 1 920-2 1 was about 1 60 students. Over a hundred courses in various branches of engineering are given by the ten instructors with several student assistants. All the instructors are experts who have had practical experience in the lines that they teach and the comparatively small numbers enrolled in most of the classes enables them to come into intimate contact with the students whom they teach. This close relationship between the teacher and pupil is one of the great advantages of the small college as against the greater universities where it may be possible for the student to have more and better facilities for pursuing his studies but where he necessarily gets much less individual attention and where originality in his work is to some extent limited. MECHANICAL ENGINEERING The School of Mechanical Engineering was the second one of the group to be organized, although the original Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862 pro- vided for a School of Mechanic Arts. For some years previous to 1 92 1 the school has been combined with the School of Electrical Engineering which has grown up with it. The same course of study has led to a degree from either school according to the choice of the student. After the present year, however, the two schools will be or- ganized separately, each having its own course of study which the student may elect and specialize in the kind of work that suits him best. This school occupies a part of the Electrical Building and nearly all of the Mechanical Building. In the Electrical Building, besides offices an d class rooms, is a laboratory which contains steam and gas motors and most of the other standard equipment to be found in laboratories of a similar kind. In the Mechanical Building are the shops for iron and wood working, forging and foundry practice. The work in the shops is so planned that the student works under the same bonus system to be found in many commercial shops in the country with the difference that here instead of receiving compensation for meritorous work in money he gets his pay in college credits. Students in Mechanical Engineering study the design, construction and +,_. — ... PAGE 1 05 4.,,_,._„ . Xhe Artemisia 1921 operation of machinery and usually take positions after graduation in some of the commercial manufacturing establishments where building of power equip- ment, shop tools, automobiles, textile machinery, etc., is ea rned on. Every year graduates in Mechanical Engineering are sought after by these great manu- facturing concerns and students are watched from their freshman year on, for their fitness to enter some one of these industries. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING The School of Electrical Engineering is also housed in the Electrical Building and here all the literature and equipment may be found for a first class education in this branch of engineering. This school is the most popular one in the college as evidenced by the number of students seeking its degree. The laboratory of the Electrical School is unique in being combined with the mechanical laboratory in such manner that the machines of both are con- nected together so each has its proper load or motive power and the student has the advantage of working on complete power units. Graduates in Electrical Engineering generally follow one of two main branches of the profession. They become operators of steam, gas or hydro- electric power plants or take positions with concerns manufacturing the equip- ment for such plants such as the Westinghouse Company or the General Elec- tric and Western Electric and representatives of such companies are on the ground every year looking for available graduates to fill up their apprentice- ship courses. CIVIL ENGINEERING The School of Civil Engineering has its temporary home in the Electrical Building where it has offices, class rooms, a fine equipment for surveying and appaiatus for testing materials of construction. Students in this school follow three mam branches of study: Surveying and its relation to railroads, highways, mine location and public improvements. Structural design and its application to the building trades, and hydraulic engineering dealing with matters of water power and irrigation. Graduates in civil engineering readily find employment in these or allied branches of under- taking. The demand for men is increasing year by year and with the public awakening to the advantage of good roads, the great irrigation projects, forest and water conservation which mean so much to the development of the great west and Nevada in particular, the outlook for graduates to find profitable service in their own state is increasingly bright. It is hoped and expected that before men now in college are ready for graduation that the " Civils " will have a home of their own in a building that ..— .+ PAGE 1 06 The Artemisia 1921 will prove fit for all their needs and also for an experimental laboratory that will give better opportunities for research work. MACKAY SCHOOL OF MINES As would be expected in a great mining state like Nevada, the School of Mines is the best equipped school in the college. It was also the first of the group to be organized, the first courses being offered in 1 888 and the first stu- dent graduated in 1892. Its home, the gifts of the Mackays, and designed by one of the foremost architects of the county, probably has no superior anywhere and the Mackay School of Mines is known the world over among people interested in mining affairs. Besides adequate class and study rooms, it contains metallurgical, assay and mining laboratories and a museum, having displays and exhibits I where the student may study the geology and mineralogy of the state and also I the equipment used in metallurgical and mining processes. A visit to this I museum which is open to the public throughout the school year, will well repay 1 the time spent by the casual visitor as well as the student. The new rare metals 1 laboratory of the U. S. Bureau of Mines will also be open to students under ! certain restrictions and will offer the best opportunity to be found anywhere in 1 the country for the study of the precious metals. 1 To a native of Nevada this school offers perhaps the best opportunity of | any in the college to prepare himself for service in developing the vast resources of his own state. The school is growing rapidly and yet more can be accom- modated. While enrollment in other departments of the University may after a time have to be limited, it is not expected that any qualified student will ever be denied admission to the School of Mines. PAGE 107 4 The Artemisia 1921 — 4. PAGE 1 08 1 The Artemisia 1921 I COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE NUMBER of important changes have occurred in the College of Agriculture during the past year, both in the faculty and in the course of study. The resignation of Dean Charles S. Knight took effect on July 1 , 1 920, the writer being selected to succeed him. Miss Sears resigned as Professor of Home Economics on September 1 , 1 920 and Miss Sarah L. Lewis of the Oregon Agricultural College was selected as her successor. The courses of study in Agriculture and Home Economics have been materially strengthened by the elimination of certain courses and the addition of others. It has been recognized clearly that the purpose of an agricultural college education is to train leaders of agricultural enterprises. It is the pur- pose of the agricultural faculty to prepare young men for leadership in farm life. It is recognized clearly that modern farming is a mode of life which must be made profitable, permanent and happy if American civilization is to endure. Agriculture is the basis industry of the nation and must be so recognized if we are to have permanent prosperity. " Public prosperity is like a tree: Agriculture is its roots; industry and com- merce are its branches and leaves. If the roots suffer, the leaves fall, the branches break and the tree dies. " This ancient bit of Chinese philosophy admirably sums up the situation confronting the American people today. It is recognized clearly that the public welfare of the country requires a prosperous, contented, happy, country life. This agricultural course in the University of Nevada has therefore been designed to prepare young men well trained in the scientific and business principles underlining their profession in order that they may successfully play their part as leaders of agricultural thought in all country life movements. Likewise it is fully recognized that successful country life can- not be achieved without the aid of the women. The course in Home Economics has therefore been thoroughly revised so as to prepare the young women for their part in the leadership of the new economic and social structure of country life. This 5 ' ear seven young men and one young woman will receive their degrees from the College of Agriculture. Most of them have already been selected for positions of leadership in connection with the various positions of agricul- tural leadership at excellent salaries. The minimum salary accepted by these graduates is $2100 per year, which is certainly an excellent recommendation for the work offered by the College of Agriculture of the University of Nevada.

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION HIS year has been a very significant one for the School of Education. There have been a number of changes all of which indicate a more extensive, and a more effective service. By action of the Board of Regents, in March, 1 920, the Normal School and all other courses in Education were officially grouped under the title of the School of Education, given its own dean, and placed in the College of Arts and Science. The number of instructors of all ranks giving work in the School of Education, required for either the elementary, or the high school teacher ' s diploma, is now twenty-two. Eleven of these are on the University staff. The other eleven include the Superintendent of Schools and ten mem- bers of the staff of the Reno High School who have accepted large responsi- bility in the practice work. Next year one more of the University staff and three from the elementary school corps of teachers will be added, making a total of twenty-six instructors co-operating in the required professional work in Education. The most significant change in the required work has been the one doubling the requirement in practice teaching and drawing the High School teachers in to share the responsibility for it. More actual teaching has been done by our students and more obvious growth in teaching power has been observed than ever before in the same length of time. A plan to re-double the amount of teaching by the Normal School students, and to secure co-operation from se- lected elementary teachers has been approved by the University faculty for next year. Another change of almost equal importance to the prospective elemen- tary teachers is the one increasing the number of credits for graduation from sixty-four to sixty-six, making all of them required, and shifting the emphasis to the subject-matter phase of the work. It is thought that the increased prac- tice will make up for the loss to the method side. In the High School program the required subjects are distributed from the Sophomore to the Senior year. The School of Education occupied the new Education Building January first. This building is easily the most beautiful one on the campus. It is com- modious, well arranged, and, when fully equipped, will be what the people of Nevada intended it to be, a physically perfect institution for the preparation of teachers. It is typical of the exalted part the School of Education should play in the solid progress of the state. Every graduate of the University, whatever department, should take a leading part in the development of the community in PAGE 1 1 1 + f — , I I I ! — — The Artemisia 1921 • which he comes to reside. Since the education of her children is the most vital function of the state, it is imperative that every one of these leaders that the University sends out into service should have an enlightened judgment on the more pressing educational problems. Every indication is that this consideration is impressing itself more and more upon the student body. 1 I PROPOSED NEW CAMPUS + ._.. PAGE 1 1 2 4, The Artemisia 1921 -« College of Arts and Science INCE the last Artemisia appeared there have been no fundamental changes in the field of work or policy of the College of Arts and Science. In a small university the various colleges are so closely related in both personnel and organization that any factor affecting one group affects all. The marked progress which has characterized the Uni- versity as a whole during this year has been reflected in all the Colleges, and the general spirit of optimism has pervaded every department. The students have shown an unusual willingness to co-operate in building up the standards of the school. The Arts and Science College must always take the lead in promoting cultural standards. All the colleges should feel an equal responsibility in maintaining moral and scholastic standards but we are justified in expecting the students in Arts and Science to lead in developing an appreci- ation of art, music, and literature, and in fostering the spirit of social service and public responsibility. In a new state where material achievement is of paramount importance and where success is measured largely in material terms, it is no easy task to de- velop those elusive qualities which are included in the broader meaning of the idea " college spirit. " A college man or woman should not only possess knowl- edge and power to achieve but also possess cultural refinement and personality, which should at once mark the college graduate. One of the prime functions of the College of Arts and Science is to give this touch. There is no comprehensive curricula or efficacious pedagogy guar- anteed to impart culture or confer refinement. These qualities can be achieved only through indirect means. There have been a number of changes planned for next year which we hope will strengthen the purpose of the College. The course of study has been more fundamentally remodelled than at any time during the past ten years. The first two years of college work have been outlined as a prescribed course with just enough free electives to allow the student opportunity to prepare for his major work, which comes in the succeeding years. It so often happens that a student entering college from a high school where his choice of subjects has been limited is confronted by a grave problem, when a complete schedule of free electives is placed before him, and he fails to choose wisely. Later in his college course he finds many of the most desirable courses closed to him be- + — , .. " ♦ PAGE 1 1 3 + " - - The Artemisia 1921 1 «i akMjmt,M jKjyrAAJ 4. PAGE 1 1 4 +,,_..

The newly adopted course will allow considerable choice on the part of the student within definitely defined fields. For example, each student will be required to select work in social science, yet he may choose one course from any of several college departments which are included in this group. The faculty of the College of Arts and Science hope through the new course of study, and by the close supervision of the student ' s work, to continue, even with a considerably increased enrollment, to offer unusual opportunities to all students who desire a thorough college course. During the past year the United States Government has established an ex- periment station here as a part of our University organization. Many of its activities are closely related to engineering, yet in its research work and the gen- eral spirit of its aims, it injects its influence at once into the College of Arts and Science. Its methods of work and its ideals of achievement will prove, at least indirectly, an inspiration to every student who studies in the University. This new influence as it spreads through our school shows most convincingly how closely related and intra-dependent all parts of our school are, and how im- portant it is for all colleges, faculties, and students to work together for the unified development of our University. Only in this way can we assure the development of the future virile university which the next college generation has a right to expect as an inheritance from us.

MILITARY ASED on experience gained by the War Department in preparing to take our part in the great World War, military trammg at our educational institutions has assumed a new and mcreased import- ance in the plans for National Defense. The creation of the Reserve Officers Training Corps has given add dignity to the cadet organizations and assigned to them the definite function of pro- viding a reserve body of young men who will be equipped to assume the duties of junior officers for the citizen army which would be called together in the event of war. The presence at the University of many students who had service in the army or navy during the war has been helpful in providing needed assistance m special lines of instruction and in bringing home to the cadets the value and need of military training. The liberal appropriations now made by the Congress for the R. O. T. C. makes it possible to carry on military instruction with little expense to the student and the pecuniary allowances made by the Government to students taking the advanced military courses constitute military scholarships amounting to two hundred dollars per year. The number of students receiving military instruction has increased from forty in January, 1919 to one hundred forty in September, 1920. As quite a number of the students now registered at the University are excused from mili- tary duty because of equivalent military training in the army or navy during the war, it is probable that the normal enrollment in the next school year will be from 1 75 to 200. With the growth of the Nevada unit it was found that the old quarters under Morrill Hall were inadequate and the military department now occupies the entire lower floor of Stewart Hall. Much new equipment has been added during the last year and the students are now given instruction with machine guns, trench mortars, cannon, and hand and rifle grenades. A new indoor rifle range has been constructed in the old S. A. T. C. bar- racks for use with sub-caliber rifles and a rifle club has been formed by a num- ber of the students and cadets. That this sport is gaining headway amongst the students is shown by the fact that the Associated Students have voted that it shall become a recognized university sport for which a circle " N " shall be -.. PAGE 1 1 9 +. — . The Artemisia 1921 i granted to those participating in recognized meets. The members of the R. O. T. C. have already participated in one match, competing with the teams from fifteen other colleges in the Western Department. Three general inspections of the Nevada R. O. T. C. unit were held during the year by the inspecting officer of the Western Department, the first was held in November, the second in March and the third in May. According to reports received from headquarters the inspection of the Nevada unit was eminently satisfactory to the inspecting officer. The hopes expressed in the 1 920 Artemisia are now in a fair way of ful- fillment and the Military Department is rapidly getting into shape where it will be able to do its share in carrying on this great national purpose.

QuilICI Business Manager Our college song aptly expresses the fundamental ideas of the Artemisia: In a day that rvill be by and by We ' ll often thinly of a by-gone day. I O matter what your school. Arts and Science, Aggie or Engineer, you will some time in the future pause for a few moments in the everyday routine of life, to think over some period of especial interest in your college days. To enliven your memory and help bring back the days of yore, the Artemisia is published each year. Unlike most books which are read over and then placed in the discard, the year book will be a permanent decoration in your home, no matter whether it be a stately mansion or a cozy cottage. The staff has worked hard and faithfully to put out a book worthy of the greatest year that Nevada has ever seen. Typewriters and adding machines by the score have been wrecked and junked, but out of the chaos of papers, pictures, adds, and jokes has come the Artemisia which is now in your hands for criticism. Be lenient with our mistakes; to err is human, to forgive divine. 1 here will be parts of the book that do not appeal to you, but perhaps there are portions that you approve of. To the former turn a blind eye and to the latter give your attention. It has been the aim of the staff to place in the Artemisia all the big hap- penings of the college year, from the Soph-Frosh cane rush to the graduation exercises of our stately Seniors. Taken all in all the Artemisia is the summation of the college year and " in a day that will be by and by " when you have wandered far from your Alma Mater, you will often think of the good old days at Nevada; then bring out the Artemisia and live again the days at the college where enthusiasm, deter- mination and pep are personified.

Bryan Editor John M. Douglas Business Manager HE U. of N. Sagebrush, the " Student Newspaper of the Uni- versity of Nevada " is, as it has been for many years, the official newspaper and mouthpiece of the students of the University, Its aims has been not only to record all the interesting events that may occur during the college year but to promoote any worthy activity of the University, and furthermore, to keep the students in touch with the activi- ties of other colleges and universities throughout the country. Each editor has striven to make his paper better than that of his predecessor, and better than any exchange weekly or semi-weekly that may come to the files. With this as an aim the Sagebrush has advanced and grown, not only in size and quality, but in circulation until now the Sagebrush is recognized as one of the best of the Western college weeklies. The university year just passed has been a momentous one for the Sage- brush, and many things have been brought about that tend for a far greater paper, even than has yet been published. First of all is a change in the style of make-up of the editorial page and an addition of a column of picked edi- torials from the college newspapers throughout the country that show the stu- dents of Nevada somewhat of the problems that beset other student bodies and means of solving similar problems at Nevada. Secondly is the fact that the Sagebrush is now established in a permanent office of its own, an office in one of the main buildings of the University where all who wish may read the ex- change files, secure information of any sort, or rest for a few moments between classes. In this office is a place for all of the hundreds of cuts that have appeared in the pages of the Sagebrush and Artemisia for many years past, desks and all the equipment needed for editing the paper. Thirdly, the Sage- brush was instrumental in organizing the Southwest Intercollegiate Press Association. This Press Association is to its college newspaper members what the Associated Press is to the newspapers of the country. Nine western col- leges and universities are members at the present time, with some half dozen more who no doubt will be admitted before the end of the semester. Hun- dreds of news items have been sent out since the first of the year by the Sage- brush to each of the S. I. P. A. members. These news articles appearing in PAGE 1 27 I .,,4. The Artemisia 1921 the western college newspapers advertise the University of Nevada far more than could ever be gotten through the big dailies. Plans are under way for the consolidation of the three university press associations into one large Western Intercollegiate Press, and this combination bids fair to be accomplished before fall. Important events occurring at any of the campuses of the papers that are members, such as results of conference athletic contests are sent by wire to each member, and those events of lesser importance are sent out weekly, semi- weekly and daily by mail. It was thru the S. I. P. A. that the Sagebrush was able to get many stories on the coast games the results of which never appeared m the big coast dailies. In chronicling the events which have happened on the Hill, the Sagebrush has striven to get the facts, all of them, and to boost Nevada at all times. Athletics and every activity on the Hill has been covered by a Sagebrush reporter at all times. A Sagebrush reporter took the play by play account of every football and basketball game with the exception of two contests. A Sagebrush man was at the other end of the wire at the football games with U. C. at Berkeley and with Utah at Salt Lake, and sent back the telegrams which were translated onto the miniature games shown in the Gym. The re- ports of the games in Honolulu were gotten through the help of the reporters of one of the big Honolulu dailies, and even the National Basketball Cham- pionship games at Kansas City were covered by a Sagebrush reporter in the person of a man on last year ' s staff. The Sagebrush has a reporter in each of the larger high schools in the state, and their weekly reports, covering all ath- letics at their particular school were filed, tabulated and a record gotten of the strength of each of their teams. In the High School basketball tournament this year, eleven members of the Sagebrush staff were on duty practically at all times and an accurate record of each game was secured. Every address given at the University during the past year has been covered by Sagebrush men, and a word for word account of everything that was said was secured. From the above facts can be seen the work done by members of the Staff during the past year, and the value of that work to the University. The circulation of the Sagebrush has increased materially and at the present time many papers are going, not only to practically every state in the United States, but to many foreign countries, and in time, with the help of the student body and plenty of good hard work on the part of the editors and staffs to come, the Sagebrush will become the greatest college newspaper in the West.

PAGE 1 32 The Artemisia 1921 ' FOOTBALL jVEN with three defeats out of twelve games played, Nevada passed through a successful season in football. Coming out of a period of decided slump which can be traced to the time when the style of play was changed from Rugby to American, the sport is well on its way to recovery. The demoralization of athletics caused by the war is now over. Nevada was one of the first to start the period of reconstruction. The 1919 season was passed through with but one defeat and paved the way for including some of the fastest teams on the coast on the 1 920 schedule. The schedule arranged was one of the hardest a Nevada team have ever played, a large percentage of the games being played away from home. The season was also unique in that two games were played in Hawaii, the longest journey that a Sagebrush team has ever taken and the first time in history that a college team from the mainland has ever played in the islands. In order that Nevada would not be handicapped by lack of practice be- cause of the late start of the school year, workouts were started nearly two weeks before the college convened. This was made necessary by the fact that many of the coast colleges started their regular training three weeks or a month before Nevada was scheduled to begin hers. Sixteen letter men from last year reported for the squad together with much new and promising material. The proposed trip to the Hawaiian Islands drew many into football suits and it was not long before the varsity was well under way with a promising season in sight. The first few weeks were spent in teaching the men the rudiments of the game and on September I I the first test of the caliber of the Varsity came in nature of the annual Varsity-Alumni battle. The Varsity showed the effects of their two weeks of training and romped through the old-timers to the tune of 20 to 6. Every man on the squad had a chance to show what he could deliver in this game and it looked as if the coach was going to have a difficult time choosing the eleven best men for the first game. The first real game of the season was with the Davis Agricultural College, Nevada emerging victorious with a score of 7 to 3. It was a hard fought game from beginning to end, and it was only by the narrow margin of four points that Nevada came out winner, although a touchdown was made in the first quarter by the Varsity that was not allowed because both teams were off side. Several chances for scores were lost by Nevada; on three occasions the ball PAGE 133 - The Artemisia 1921 - was on the Aggies ' 10 yard line, but the necessary push, coupled with num- erous fumbles, seemed to be a stumbling block in the way of a larger score. The Davis team which faced the Varsity was a far different team than the one which the Varsity had defeated the year before by a score of 56 to 0. Davis was the first to score. They worked the ball within striking distance of the Nevada goal early in the first quarter but the Nevada defense tightened and the farmers tried a successful place kick from Nevada ' s 33 yard line. Nevada did not score until the third quarter, although several chances pre- sented themselves. Recovering a fumbled ball on Davis ' 27 yard line, the Varsity used straight football tactics and sent Captain Eddie Reed over for the only touchdown of the game. The following Saturday the San Francisco American Legion team, reputed to be the best team of its class on the coast, went down to defeat before the Silver and Blue pig skin artists by a score of 47 to 7. The Legion team was composed of stars from many colleges and fought gamely, if ineffectively, throughout. The result of the game was never in doubt, the Nevada offensive penetrated the Legion line at will. Thrilling plays were not lacking for several long runs were made. In the second half practically the entire second team replaced the first squad, but the scoring continued undiminished. The Legion recovered a fumbled ball in the third quarter on Nevada ' s 20-yard line and in a series of determined line bucks, placed the oval across the line for their only score of the game. On October 9 the Varsity romped through the Mare Island sailors for their third win of the year, the score being 28 to 0. Contrary to reports from the coast, the Gobs proved to have a heavy, well balanced and smoothly working lineup. The game was played on a cold, biting day with a strong wind blowing which prevented either team from using open play and slowed the game con- siderably. Straight football tactics were used by both sides with Nevada having the advantage in nearly every play. What was perhaps the stellar play of the season was made in this game when Ted Fairchild in the last two minutes of play recovered a fumbled navy ball on Nevada ' s one yard Ime and ran nmety-nine yards for a touchdown. The games played thus far had in reality been little more than practice games. The teams, which Nevada had met, while being composed of excep- tionally good players, were not of the class of the stronger coast colleges, and it was with some misgivings that the Varsity, accompanied by over half of the University, journeyed to Berkeley for the big game with California. University football enthusiasts who had visions of a Nevada victory over California on the Berkeley had a decided setback when the Bears emerged vic- torious in a hard fought game on the long end of a 79 to 7 score. Despite the score the game was hotly contested throughout. The California team ran true PAGE 1 34 — The Artemisia 1921 - .«— « Kenneth Reese — Right Guard. Although this is Reese ' s first year on the Varsity he proved himself an indis- pensible line man. He is a stonewall on defense and has a powerful drive on of- fense that opens wide holes in the enemy ' s line. Considering that this is his first year of football he made a remarkable showing. Assistant Coach Williams — One of the big items which contributed to Nevada ' s successes this year was the able coaching of the second team by Coach Williams. It is an undeniable fact that a good second team adds greatly to the success of the Varsity. Before each game the second string men were drilled in the tactics of the opposing team in order to give the Varsity a chance to prepare a defense. MahlON Fairchild — Right Guard. " Tiny " needs no introduction to Ne- vada football fans. As captain of the 1920 Varsity he proved himself a player of merit and a leader whom men will fol- low. " Tiny " has for three years been one of the mainstays of the Nevada line. Al- ways fighting he never gives up until the last whistle blows. »_.+ PAGE 1 35 - The Artemisia 1921 —— ' (S VS j Tom Buckman — Lejt Guard. Long Tom has played four years on the Varsity and each year his playing has been better than the previous year. This year has been the culmination of his foot- ball career. Always a stonewall on de- fense, his ranginess enables him to meet his opponent in a manner much to the latter ' s discomfort. He easily opens wide gaps in the opposing line. Homer Johnson — Left Halfback. " Windy " has the honor of being the hardest hitting back on the Nevada team. Although injuries received at the begin- ning of the season kept him out of several of the games he was responsible for a large part of the yardage accredited to the Ne- vada team. " Windy " invariably has the grandstand on its feet when he starts down the field with the ball tucked under his arm. Jack Heward — Center. Heward ' s work in the center position is without criticism. He is an accurate passer, a hard hitter, and has a drive that carries his opponent before him. His work on the defensive is especially good and time after time he is able to break through the opposing line and break up the play before it is started. PAGE 1 36 - The Artemisia 1921 ..—4. Willis Church — Quarterback. Church ' s work in the quarter position leaves httle to be desired. An able gen- eral, he was able to outguess his oppon- ents. He IS an excellent forward passer and his passes always reach their mark. A shifty runner, if he was given an open field, a large gain can always be counted upon. Playing safety he always stops his opponent. William Martin — Right End; Cap- tain-Elect. Martin ' s stellar work at end often contributed to a Nevada victory. He is equally good on offense or defense and can always be counted upon in time of need. He has an uncanny ability to get under a forward pass. The choice of this year ' s team for next year ' s captain cannot be too much commended. Emerson Fisher — Left Tackle. " Fish " proved himself one of the most capable members of the team. His drive and stamina brought him into every play. He is a tackier of ability. Few plays ever went through the part of the line that he was defending. His speed and endurance coupled with his tacking ability would win him a place on any team. PAGE 1 3 7 The Artemisia 1921 | ' — ■ " — Tom Grant — Right Guard. Tom ' s work in either the backfield or the hne is one of the potential factors in Nevada ' s successes. His gameness and tackhng abihty have made him well fitted for either place. Tom is a mountain of strength to the line and it is seldom that the opposmg team succeeds is opening a gap in his territory. Bernhard Hammert — Right Half- back. Hammert ' s small and stocky build lent itself admirably to line plungmg and his speed in the open field made him a hard man to catch. In addition he is a brainy player and one who can be de- pended upon at all times. Vincent Dunne — Fullback. Vince is one of the star players of the team. His specialty is line plunging and when called upon never failed to gain ground in this manner. On end runs he is the key man of the Nevada interference and oftentimes enabled the runner to make large gains by his brainy work. I .4 PAGE 138 ' " - The Artemisia 1921 Noble Waite — Left End. This is the first year that Noble tried for the Varsity. Starting with the second string he was soon advanced to the first squad and before the season was over proved himself an indespensible member of the Varsity. His speed in breaking up plays and in getting down the field under a forward pass made him invaluable in both offense and defense. James Bradshaw — Quarterback. Besides bemg an able pilot he was the mainstay of the backfield. His wide end runs could always be counted on to gam ground when other means failed. His left- hand passes went straight and true to the mark — forty yard passes were not uncom- mon. His shiftiness in an open field won for him the name of " Rabbit. " Ed Reed — Right Halfback; Captain. Eddie was a real leader for the team. The men caught his spirit of fight and it was largely through his ability to make the men work together that the team was so successful. His name of " Flash " was earned by his speed in getting through the gaps opened in the opposing line. He was responsible for the major portion of Ne- vada ' s scores this year. PAGE 1 39 The Artemisia 1921 - Tom Middleton — Fullback. Tom is another of the men who made the Varsity their first year out. His speed coupled with his grit and fighting abihty won him a place on the squad. He was always ready in a pinch and could be counted upon for yardage. Tom ' s spe- cialty was line plunges and few of the opposing team were able to stop him. Mark Colwell — Right Tackle. Mark came to Nevada with four 3 ears high school football experience and a repu- tation that was hard to beat. That he lived up to his reputation goes without saying. He has over two hundred pounds of brawn which he can send hurtling into the midst of his opponents play, breaking them up with ease. On defense his brawn also stands him in good stead; he is im- movable. Ted Fairchild — Left End. This was Ted ' s second year on the Varsity and the showing he made last year was far eclipsed by his playing this year. Ted ' s speed served him equally well m getting behind the opponents defense and nailing the runner before he was started and in going down the field to retrieve a long forward pass. PAGE 140 The Artemisia 1921 Herb Foster — Right Halfback. Herb Foster ' s playing at halfback won for him a place on the first team. Although this is his first year at Varsity football he proved himself one of the best players on the field. In line plunging, in end runs, or in forward passing he can al- ways be counted upon to perform his share of the work. He is a hard tackier and when he hits an opponent it is as if a stone- wall were blocking the way. Coach Courtright — Coach Courtright has been with Ne- vada two years now and it is mainly through his painstaking work that Nevada teams have been so successful in the past two years. Football is one of his pet hobbies and he puts his heart and soul into the work, instilling into his men the same spirit, the spirit for which Nevada has long been noted. As a coach he has the happy faculty of understanding the game in all its twists and turns and of being able to drill his men until they form a perfectly working machine. .. — 4. PAGE 141 +.— ..

PAGE 142 The Artemisia 1921 - ..-+ to form, as sports writers had pictured them, a wonderful scoring machine and probably the strongest aggregation ever assembled at the coast institution. Their line appeared to be almost impenetratable and their backfield worked like a smoothly oiled machine, which once gotten under way, was impossible to stop. California took the field a 4 to 1 favorite over Nevada, on the showing previously made against coast teams. A win from St. Mary ' s to the tune of 127 to 0, and an 88 to victory over the Mare Island Sailors together with other similar scores run up during the season, their total in three games being 236 points against their opponents 0, and it was the consensus of opinion among the coast fans that they would go through the season without a single score chalked up against them. The Nevada eleven blasted their hopes of accom- plishing such an end. As the two teams lined up at the start of the game Nevada proved to be somewhat the lighter, the Bears outweighing the Sage- brushers probably ten pounds to the man, and having a considerably heavier backfield and the same ratio of weight was carried out even when several sub- stitutes had been sent into the game. Both teams used their first string lineups to start the game. Injuries to several Nevada stars placed them under some- what of a handicap but the majority of them managed to last out most of the game. The game itself was confined largely to scrimmage and flank plays with numerous end runs and a small number of completed forward passes. Nevada hopes went down glimmering in the first three minutes when a fluke gave the Bears the first tally. After the first tally it seemed that the Bruin backfield took turns in chasing through the Nevada line for large gains. The Sagebrush team fought gamely to stem the tide of the Bears attack, but it was in vain. It was in the third quarter that Nevada made its only score of the game. Nevada kicked off to California and Muller recovered the ball, but was heavily tackled by Martin and in falling the ball shot out of his hands and was recovered by Tiny Fairchild for Nevada. An end run by Bradshaw and a perfect forward pass to Martin for 25 yards placed the ball within 1 5 yards of the Bear goal. Another pass to Reed was completed and the Varsity captain, after shaking off a few tacklers, carried the ball 14 yards and over California ' s line for the first score against the Bruins this year. Incidentally the sting of the defeat is somewhat relieved when account is taken of the fact that but two teams were able to cross the California line during the entire season, and that Nevada was one of those teams. Even the highly touted champions of the middle west in the New Years game at Pasa- dena failed to score against the California " wonder team. " One of the notable inc idents about the game was the great interest shown in it by the people of Nevada as a whole. Nearly everyone who could get away was at the game and the trains and roads leading to Berkeley were PAGE 143 ! 1 The Artemisia 1921 U DO an PAGE 144 f ' jPfig Artemisia 1921 crowded with the people who went to see the game. When the game started, the Nevada rooting section was nearly as large as that of California despite the disparity m the sizes of the two colleges and if a final count could have been made it would have shown that Nevada supporters outnumbered California ' s by two to one. It was one of the most remarkable demonstrations of school spirit that has ever been shown on the coast. During the two weeks that followed the California defeat the Varsity settled down to the hard grind of practice, determined that the defects de- veloped in the Sagebrush defense should be remedied. The effect of the gruelling workouts was shown when on October 30 the Varsity journeyed to Salt Lake City to play the University of Utah. In a hard fought struggle the Mormons fell before the attack of the Silver and Blue by a score of 1 4 to 7. Sport writers in doping out the game beforehand, gave Nevada a slight edge on the Mormon team, partly on the basis of Nevada ' s score against Cali- fornia, which they considered quite a feat, in the face of Utah ' s white-wash at the hands of the Golden Bear. From the time the starting whistle blew until the finish it was evident that neither side would be able to gain victory by merely bucking the line. Utah was unable to penetrate the Sagebrush defense and in like manner Nevada failed to break through the Utah line. During the first quarter neither team made first down once, although the advantage lay with Nevada, the ball remaining in Mormon territory practically the entire period. In the second quarter both teams tried the forward pass with success. The forward passing of the Utah team resulting in its first and only score of the game. Forward passes coupled with line bucks carried the ball back and over the Utah line tying the score. The ball seesawed back and forth in the third quarter and it was not until Nevada recovered a fumbled Utah pass that either team got within scoring distance. A long forward pass across the Mormon line gave Nevada a second score and clinched the game. The ball remained in the center of the field during the rest of the game. The victory over th e University of Utah, the strongest contender for the championship of the Rocky Mountain Conference heartened the Nevada team and the following week when the Utah Agricultural team arrived in Reno, the Varsity treated them to a 21 to drubbing. The first half was a battle from start to finish, and from all indications at the start it appeared as though the game might end with a to tie. During the first quarter the ball was in Nevada territory a large part of the time. Fumbles at critical moments prevented the Nevada team from getting within striking distance of the Utah line. Nevada received a big scare when Utah recovered a fumbled ball on Nevada ' s 32 yard line and then completed a for- ward pass which placed the ball within two feet of a score. Nevada ' s line PAGE 145 " -| The Artemisia 1921 ■i. V hll- NH— «ll — 11.1 PAGE 146 77 Artemisia 1921 held, however, and the ball was soon placed safely in the middle of the field. In the second half the Sagebrush team opened up with a series of open plays and forward passes which completely mystified their opponents and which netted three touchdowns before the final whistle blew. The victories over the University of Utah and the Utah Agricultural Col- lege, both of whom had defeated all the other teams in the Rocky Mountain Conference, showed that the Nevada team was one of the best in the country, notwithstanding the stinging defeat met at the hands of California. " Corky " Courtright ' s huskies tasted their second cup of defeat when they met the speedy University of Southern California Trojans at Los Angeles, and went down to defeat 38 to 7. Despite the figures the game was hard fought throughout, and although clearly outclassed, the Sagebrushers kept the southern boys constantly on the jump and threw many a scare into them before the final whistle. Again it was a fluke play which netted Nevada ' s opponents the first score after but a few minutes of play. Several times it appeared that Nevada would score, but each time some unfortunate incident occurred which prevented it. The defeat by the southern team was not unexpected when it was considered that the Trojans were considered to have nearly as good a team as California. In the last contest before the team sailed for Hawaii for two post season games Nevada was again forced to take the short end of a 24 to 21 score from Santa Clara at San Francisco. Opening up with a spread formation in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter, with the score standing Nevada 2 1 , Santa Clara I 7, the Santa Clara team turned the tables and put across the winning touchdown in the last 25 second of play. Following the Santa Clara game practice was held twice each week to keep the men in shape for the two post-season games at Honolulu during the Christ- mas vacation. On December 1 4 seventeen men of the Varsity squad accom- panied by Coach Courtright left for the Islands. In the first of the games the Sagehens emerged victorious, defeating the University of Hawaii on Christmas Day by a score of 1 4 to 0. Then followed a week during which the players were treated to the sights of the Islands. The last game of the season with the Outrigger Club, the champions of the Islands, resulted in a scoreless tie. In conclusion it might again be emphasized that while the season was not one of the most successful that a Nevada team has gone through, yet it indicates that the University is again assuming its high place in coast college athletics.

A record squad of men answered the call and although little can be said of the track men at the time of this writing, the prospects are excellent for one of the best track years that Nevada has yet had. Although but one letter man. Captain Bradshaw, returned from the team last year, there is a wealth of promismg material. One regular meet has already been scheduled, that with the Davis Agricultural College at Davis, California, and there is a possibility of a second, either with the Olympic Club or Santa Clara on the home track. In addition to the intercollegiate track meets there were several inter- school meets, notably the Inter-Frat-Lincoln Hall meet, the Inter-Class meet, and the Inter-College meet. Due to a revision in the requirements for letters it was announced that any man breaking a record in any meet other than the intercollegiate meets would be granted a letter. This will give the men a greater opportunity to obtain the highest award that can be received at Nevada for participation in athletics. Last year the only scheduled meet that Nevada had was the one with Davis Agricultural College at Reno. Although it ended with Nevada on the short end of a 68 to 63 score, the showing made by the Nevada runners was remarkable when the fact is considered that it was the first track team that Nevada had put out since the beginning of the war. The Nevada team entered the meet a totally untried quantity, but from the marks that the men had made in practice a close race was promised with the more experienced Aggie students. Davis took the lead at the beginning of the meet and had a good margin of points before the Nevada team started working. Slowly but surely the Nevada team caught up with the farmers and passed them, only to weaken and let the farmers resume the lead again. Just before the relay was run the score stood 63 all, the result of the meet lying in the final race. In the relay the Aggies got off to a good start and were never headed. The Nevada runners pushed them so closely, however, that they were forced to break the record established in 1915 in order to win the race. Nevada was somewhat handicapped in the meet by the loss of Waite ?nd Hammond, neither of whom were able to participate and both were considered sure point winners. 4,11 „„ ,„ I ■4 PAGE 149 .{. — , ._,._. „. — 1 xhe Artemisia 1921 - " Two records were broken in the meet while a third was equalled. Schlopp of Davis by his leap of 22 feet 6 inches broke the broad jump record estab- lished by Lloyd Root by two and a fourth inches. The time of the relay was four and two-fifths seconds better than the record set by Randall, Hylton, Mc- Phail and Bringham in ' 15. Brown of Davis equalled the record of Randall in the century dash when he stepped the distance in ten seconds flat. Buckman came within a foot of smashing the shoot put record established by C. C. Smith in ' 05. In the mterclass meet Decker unofficially slashed six seconds from the two- mile record by negotiating the distance in 10:43 4-5. Because of very bad weather late in the spring, and to rumors that the Davis meet would not be held as scheduled, interest in track work slackened. Due to i.he inability of the farmers to meet the expenses of the trip the meet was post- poned until April 30. Word was finally received that the meet would be held as scheduled on that date. Track work was once more resumed with vigor and at the time that this book went to press the interest was nearing fever heat.

The girls athletic manager, Hallie Organ, scheduled several games on the coast, one in Oregon and two on the home floor. The first game was played in the University Gymnasium on February 1 3, against the Zellerbach team from San Francisco. The team work and basket shootmg, which were perfected under Coach Somers ' instruction, won the game by a score of 68 to 3 in Nevada ' s favor. Adele Clinton and Rose Mitchell played their usual fast game at center. Captain Organ and Erma Hoskins found the hoop without any difficulty, while the Nevada guards, June Harri- man and Gen Morgan had a hard time trying to keep warm while waiting for the ball to come within their reach. On February 22 the team, consisting of Captain Organ, Erma Hoskins, forwards; Adele Clinton, center; Rose Mitchell, side center; June Harriman, Genevieve Morgan, guards, and Margaret Barnes, Helen Cordes substitutes, left for the Coast to play a number of games. The first game on the trip was played with Dominican College at San Rafael. Although played on a slippery floor, the game was fast from start to finish- At one time the score was 32 to 3 1 in Nevada ' s favor, but this was only for a moment, for the Sagebrush players soon increased their lead and when the final whistle blew they were on the long end of a 41 to 36 score. The second game was a return game with the Zellerbach Girls in the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium in San Francisco. It was merely a repetition of what happened on the local floor. The final score stood in Nevada ' s favor 53 to 5. The final game played on the trip was with Oregon Agricultural College at Corvallis. After a two days trip from San Francisco the team arrived at Corvallis in the early hours of Saturday morning, February 26. The game was scheduled for that afternoon. Except at the beginning the Nevada team lead throughout the entire game until the last few minutes of play when Oregon gained the lead by converting the fouls Nevada made. The score ended 24 to 26 in Oregon ' s favor. This was no doubt the fastest girls game ever played in Oregon and the hardest team that Oregon had met. The Oregon coach and referee made the statement immediately following the game that the Nevada team was the fastest they had seen for a good many years. PAGE 1 5 9 w I The Artemisia 1921 The trip all in all was a wonderful success and will be long remembered by the girls who went. On March 12 the varsity met defeat at the hands of the Young Ladies Institute team of San Francisco on their home court by a score of 27 to 19. The fact that Nevada ' s guard, June Harriman, was injured on the coast trip and was unable to play in the game, and the addition of an extra side center handicapped the Sagebrush team considerably. This was an out-of-season game for the Nevada varsity while the Y. L. I. ' s were in the best of condition and outsized the Nevada girls in everyway. The game was slow but was hard fought. The girls who played were : Captain Organ, Helen Fuss, Erma Hoskms, Adele Clinton, Rose Mitchell, Justine Badt, Genevieve Morgan and Margaret Barnes. The substitutes were Kenny and Stephens. The team regrets seeing Hallie Organ and Helen Fuss leave as they have been staunch supporters of the varsity for four years. As the team now stands it has a strong varsity ready for next season, not mentioning the new material that may come in. Adele Clinton and Rose Mitchell will be ready to increase their speed in center. Erma Hoskins and Helen Cordes will perfect their posi- tion as forwards, while June Harriman and Genevieve Morgan will be ready with speedier team work and more accurate guarding. All left to be desired IS a good schedule for next season. The girls awarded their letters this season are: Forwards, Captain Organ, Erma Hoskins, Helen Fuss and Helen Cordes; centers, Adele Clinton, Rose Mitchell; guards, June Harriman, Genevieve Morgan and Margaret Barnes. I I I ! 1 PAGE 1 60 I - The Artemisia 1921 BASKETBALL ♦:♦ ♦ ASKETBALL at the University got away to a late start due to the fact that the majority of the members of the team, together with the coach, were on the football team that went to Honolulu. Less than a week of actual practice was held before the first league game of the season, and this fact was in large measure the cause of the only defeat that Nevada received in the league. Besides the regular league games, Nevada played a number of extra games, notably with the Olympic Club of San Francisco and with the Los Angeles Blues. The showing made in these games aroused the enthusiasm of the students and the merchants of Reno with the result that a subscription was taken up to send the team to the National championships at Kansas City. There the team met and defeated two of the best teams in the middle-west before it was defeated by the Kansas City Athletic Club which won the championship. At the start of the season the outlook for a championship team was bright with six men from last year ' s varsity back in school and a record squad out for both the freshman and second teams. One of the noticeable facts was that for the first time in years the squad had to be cut. In addition to this a squad was started to learn the rudiments of the game. The basketball season opened on January 22 when Nevada played St. Marys in the gymnasium. The final score was St. Marys 21, Nevada 19. Nevada ' s lack of practice was shown in the contest, the old time flash of action being absent. The game started rather slowly with St. Marys taking the lead. Toward the end of the first half they made a spurt and their star center dropped several baskets from the center of the floor. The score at half time stood 19 to 8 in favor of St. Marys. In the second half the contest turned into a real basketball game. Nevada came back strong but the offensive started too late. The score gradually piled up for the Sagebrush quintette, the St. Mary ' s team started stalling and the final whistle blew with Nevada two points behind St. Marys. Nevada men, determined to overcome the defeat, put in a strenuous week of practice and the following Friday left for the coast to engage St. Ignatius College of San Francisco and the College of Pacific at San Jose. Both teams were beaten decisively, and since both teams were considered strong contenders for the coast championship, Nevada followers again took heart. These two victories coming as they did after the unfortunate Nevada-St. Marys hoop +_., PAGE 1 61 .«_.+ w The Artemisia 1921 PAGE 1 62 „ .4. I ' " -| The Artemisia 1921 contest, were sooihing tonics for the doubtful pennant winning aspirations which were generally shared after Nevada ' s defeat in the first league game. The St. Ignatius game was hard fought and interspersed with heated argu- ments over fouls. Field goals were few and far between in the first half while foul throws afforded Nevada her greatest chance to score. Nevada ' s peculiar five-man defense chaffed the loose playing tactics of the St. Ignatians. Unable to break past even the first line of defense they repeatedly fouled the Nevada players. At the end of the first half the score was 7 to 6 in favor of Nevada. Nevada opened the second half with a fast pace, and the old time accuracy in shooting baskets became apparent in the number of times that the ball rolled through the basket. The game ended with Nevada on the long end of a 22 to 12 score. The game against the College of Pacific was very different from the one at St. Ignatius, though none the less hard fought, in the matter of the spirit shown by the rooters and players at decisions by the referee. As in the pre- ceding game Nevada led at the end of the first period the score being 21 to 16. An interesting defensive battle progressed throughout the contest. Pacific using five man defense the same as the varsity, and for this reason practically all the field goals made by the preachers were from outside the Nevada defense. Nevada was far more successful with this style of play than their opponents, the forwards working the ball well within the San Jose defense and tossing the leather pellet from easy throwing distance. The following week Nevada took the Sacramento American Legion team into camp by a score of 39 to 27. The Reno American Legion team suffered a like defeat at the hands of the Varsity, the score being 25 to 1 3. Several members of the varsity were out of this game on account of injuries. On February 1 4, Nevada met the Santa Clara Missionites and emerged victorious after a thrilling and hard fought game. The result of the game was never in doubt although the visitors several times spurted and almost succeeded in catching Nevada. Nevada ' s reverse turn and five-man defense proved too much for the visitors and only occasionally were they able to break through with success, the final score standing Nevada 29, Santa Clara 1 I . On February 18 and 19 Nevada met the crack Olympic Club team in a two-game series emerging victorious from both encounters. Both games were replete with stellar guarding, spectacular baskets, and speedy floor work. The first game started off with a snap, the Olympics working the ball down the floor to the Nevada defense and after a few minutes of strenuous work scored the first goal. From then on the game was nip and tuck with the baskets being divided. The score at the end of the first half standing 14 to 13 in favor of Nevada. The second period opened with Nevada playing a far different style PAGE 163 — .«—.. The Artemisia 1921 - Ed Reed — Forward. Eddie ' s speed and accurate basket shoot- ing readily won him a place on the Varsity. His endurance kept h im going at top speed throughout the game. In the style of play that Nevada has used for the last two years. Reed ' s ability to cover a large portion of the floor contributed largely to Nevada ' s suc- cesses. William Martin — Guard; Captain 1920. This IS Bill ' s last year at the game. For four years he has been the mainstay of the team. As a standing guard he has no equal. He is a clear thinker and oftentimes suc- ceeded by his quickness in preventing what seemed to be a sure score. It will be diffi- cult to find a man to replace him next year. Noble Waite — Forward; Captain. Noble is undoubtedly one of the best players that Nevada has ever had. For the past two years he has been All Pacific Coast forward. His stamina and lightning-like quickness brings him into every play. He is seldom more than a few feet from the ball. His accuracy in basket shooting is shown by the fact that he accumulated the major por- tion of Nevada ' s points.

His height serves well in procuring the ball at center and in shooting under the basket. His playing is consistent and he can always be relied upon in an emergency. Tom Buckman — Center. " Long Tom " proved equally good on both defense and offense. He never missed under the basket and his great height enabled him to shoot with freedom. Nevada ' s style of play called him back to play defensive center a large part of the time. His playing of this position is without criticism. He was chosen All-Coast center for two years. Jimmy Bradshaw — Guard; Captain-elect. Jimmy was easily the fastest man on the floor. His speed and trickiness often enabled him to carry the ball the length of the floor unaided. He is an accurate shot and aided greatly in swelling Nevada ' s score. He also had the honor of being chosen on the mythi- cal All-Coast team. He will prove a good leader for next year ' s team. PAGE 1 6 5 - The Artemisia 1921 of game. Dribbles were infrequent, being replaced by short speedy passes. The defense was practically inpenetrable and only one basket was garnered by the Winged O players. The final score was Nevada 30, Olympic Club 1 8. In the second game the Olympics resorted to the same style of play that the Nevada men used with such success that the result was in doubt until the final whistle blew. Up until the last few minutes of play the Olympic Club players managed to keep the lead although closely pressed by Nevada. In the last two minutes of play Nevada made a spurt tying the score and just before the whistle blew tossed the basket that decided the game, the final score standing Nevada 22, Olympic Club 20. The following week the Los Angeles Blues played a two-game series with Nevada, the Silver and Blue winning the first and the Blues taking the second. The first game was a decisive victory for Nevada, the Sagebrush players run- ning up nearly a two to one score on the visitors, while in the second the Blues evened up the series by coming out on the long end of a 23 to 19 sc ore. The first game was fast throughout and the Nevada men clearly outplayed the Blues. In the second game first one team forged ahead and then the other. The score at half time : Los Angeles 8, Nevada 7. In the second half the Los Angeles ieam opened up with a whirlwind of playing that gave them a good margin of points which Nevada was unable to overcome. The entry to the National tournament was made at the last minute and the team arrived at Kansas City the day before the meet was scheduled to start, drawing a bye for the first day. On the second day Nevada tangled with the Osage Athletic Club, winning 35 to 25. Nevada took the lead at the start and although the Osage team used the five-man defense, the Sagehens suc- ceeded in breaking through and finding the basket, the first half ending with the score standing Nevada 18, Osage 8. The club men tightened up in the second half, the baskets being evenly distributed and each team coined seven- teen points. Both teams were weak in converting fouls. In the second round of the tournament Nevada met and defeated University of Tulsa by a score of 25 to 2 L The outcome was in doubt until the final whistle sounded. Tulsa was a team from which a great deal was expected, having won the champion- ship of tile Missouri Valley Conference. In the third round Nevada met the famed Kansas City Athletic Club whom the sport writers had picked to win the tournament. Although all agreed that K. C. A. C. would win they expected a hard battle, and for once the prognostications were fulfilled. Although outclassed, the Nevada team fought gamely, but were unable to stem the tide of the heavier and more experienced clubmen. The score of the game was 40 to 19 but it no way indicates the fight that ihe Sagebrushers put up. It was the lowest and closest score that the Kansas City team was held to during the tournament. I PAGE 1 66 The Artemisia 1921 - " — " ' ■ BOXING ' Molly " Malone NE of the little known championships of which Nevada is justly proud is that won by George Wilson Malone last Fall when he won the amateu : boxing cham- pionship of the Pacific Coast in the middle-weight division. The bouts were held under the auspices of the Olympic Club of San Francisco as one of the regular championships of the P. A. A. division of the A. A. U. Boxers from a number of coast colleges together with representatives of many clubs were present at the tournament. " Molly " was the only representa- tive that the University of Nevada was able to enter. " Molly ' s " first bout was with Tommy Marlowe of the Olympic Club, considered one of the fastest and cleverest amateur middleweights on the coast. Although " Molly " could easily have registered a knockout in either of the last two rounds, he was ad- vised by his seconds not to extend himself and was content to win on his large margin of points. His second and final bout was with Harold Fmmel, also of the Olympic Club, and the man in whom the clubmen pinned their faith to win the middle- weight championship. That this bout was much more difficult than the first was evidenced by the fact that an extra round was necessary to determine the winner. In it " Molly " opened up with a whirlwind of rights and lefts that dazzled his opponent and had him clinching desperately when the final bell sounded. Although " Molly " was unable to go to the championship tournament this year due to the press of work and lack of training facilities, he will in all proba- bility leturn next year to defend his title and uphold the honor of the University. PAGE 1 67 ■■■ +„_., The Artemisia 1921 — " " — « — ♦ FRESHMAN BASKETBALL SQUAD FRESHMEN BASKETBALL URING the past year Freshmen athletics have been developed to a far greater extent than in any other season in the history of the University. Particularly has this been true in regard to basketball. Early in December preliminary practice began under the guidance of Assistant Coach C. B. Williams. Excellent material turned out and a squad was soon whipped into shape for the first games with Sparks and Reno High School. Following the holidays, the squad again turned out, so as to be ready for the Varsity, when it returned from the Hawaiian Islands. Many times the Freshmen battled with the Varsity sometimes resulting in very close scores. Too much cannot be said of the work of the Frosh team in preparing the first five for its schedule with the best teams on the Coast. It became Nevada ' s second varsity and it will be mainly from this material that Nevada will build up her " fighting varsities " of the coming seasons. PAGE 168 ■ " - The Artemisia 1921 -..-+, MINOR SPORTS HILE there are but two activities at the University which are regu- larly recognized as minor sports and for which Circle N ' s are granted — debating and rifle shooting — there are a number of others which may be justly considered under this head. In debating this year Circle N ' s were granted three men, Howard Westervelt, John Harrison, and Carroll Wilson, for participation in the two intercollegiate debates on Nevada ' s schedule. In rifle shooting, although the University has partici- pated in one recognized meet, there have been no recommendations for letters as yet. Under the head of minor sports is included baseball which, although no intercollegiate games have been scheduled, has aroused a great deal of interest among the students. There was considerable talk of again making it a major sport, but due to the fact that it was impossible to put out both a track team and a baseball team at the same time, baseball was dropped in favor of track. The work in baseball was largely confined to inter-fraternity and inter-organi- zation games. From the enthusiasm aroused in these games and with the growing size of the school it should not be long before baseball is agam a recognized major sport. The next in importance in the minor sports is tennis. Here again no inter- collegiate matches were scheduled, but an interclass meet was held. The new courts thai were installed last summer have been filled to capacity and more are now needed. A lot of talent has been developed on the courts this year and it is probable that matches with coast universities will be arranged in the near future. Among other minor sports that might be mentioned in passing are volley ball, indoor baseball and interclass basketball. PAGE 1 69 ..— . MH - The Artemisia 1921 RENO HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM •}• ii vii PAGE 170 The Artemisia 1921 - INTERSCHOLASTIC MEETS IGH School basketball and track meets are again an established tradition at the University. For a number of years it has been the custom to hold the interscholastic meets under the direction of the Block " N " Society. This practice was discontinued during the war due to the inability of the high schools to meet the expenses of the trip to Reno, but was re-established this year. Only the interscholastic basketball meet was held by the Block " N " Society this year, the track meet being held under the direction of a committee appointed from representatives of the various high schools. The date set for the track meet is May seventh and eighth, and, as in the past, it will be held in the University oval. In the basketball tournament this year the largest number of competing high schools in the history of the school were the guests of the University. The tournament lasted for three days, during which time the members of the various teams were housed in Lincoln Hall, Manzanita Hall, the fra- ternity houses and in the homes of the university students. The teams were given their meals at the University dining hall. One of the main purposes of holding the meet was to show the high school students w hat the University of Nevada had to offer them, both in the line of studies and entertainment, and it was with this purpose in view that the en- tertainment committee of the Block " N " Society arranged the programs for the days the high schools were here. It has been found that this method is most successful in obtaining new students at the University. Reno High School again emerged victorious in the boys ' tournament, making the second straight year that they have won the championship. In the final game of the tournament they defeated Carson City High School by a score of 24 to 1 3. The game was fast and hard fought throughout, the Carson players contesting the game until the last minute, but were no match for the more experienced Reno team. In the girl ' s tournament, Fallon defeated Winnemucca, last year ' s cham- pions, in the final game, in what was perhaps the most exciting game of the series. The teams were neck and neck until the final whistle blew, first one team taking the lead and then the other. The final score was Fallon 3 1 , Winnemucca 29. The games were well played throughout the tournament and, while the material developed in the teams was not above the average, much good work PAGE 1 7 1 1 „ — I ThQ Artemisia 1921 ..- was shown. Since this is the first year that a number of the smaller high schools have been entered in the tournament, it is felt and hoped that the experience they received will enable them to put teams in the field next year that will be strong contenders for the championship. Followmg the tournament all state teams were picked by the members of the sports staff of the Sagebrush. They are as follows : Boys ' First Team — Forwards: Hood, Reno; Clock, Gardnerville. Cen- ter : Christenson, Carson. Running Guard : Harrison, Reno. Standing Guard : Brown, Carson. Second Team — Forwards: Foote, Sparks; McKenzie, Carson. Center: Gibbons, Reno. Running Guard : Grobli, Elko. Standing Guard : Clay, Reno. Honorable Mention — Forwards: Young, Reno; Byrne, Tonopah; Hug, Tonopah; Preston, Lovelock. Centers: Randall, Dayton; Rix, Tonopah. Guards : Organ, Winnemucca ; Van Meter, Carson ; Donney, Sparks. Girls ' First Team — Forwards: Mills, Fallon; Lowry, Winnemucca. J. Center: Groth, Fallon. S. Center: Humphrey, Reno. Guards: Sebbas, Lovelock; Travis, Fallon. Second Team — Forwards: Riel, Winnemucca; P. Johnson, Elko. J. Cen- ter: Van Reed, Lovelock. S. Center — Bonehan, Sparks.

The Artemisia 1921 THE QUAD IN WINTER LINCOLN HALL IN WINTER PAGE 1 74 - The Artemisia 1921 CALENDAR September 9 — College is again convened for another year. Many old faces are seen on the campus and a multitude of new ones. The registration is the largest in the history of the school. Work has already been started by the members of the Nevada V arsity football team and the outlook for a winning team is bright. Coach Courtright has announced that, in addition to the regular schedule, football games will be played with the University of Southern California and with the University of Hawaii at Honolulu. The largest football squad that Mackay field has ever seen is out for a chance for the Island trip. The faculty is complete for the first time in many years. Members of the new government mining experiment station have arrived and are already at work solving some of the problems of the rare and precious metals. All in all it looks as if this will be the greatest year that Nevada has yet had. September 16 — Enrollment has been completed and a new record established. There are now 418 students enrolled of whom 198 are Frosh. Night rushes have re- sumed their popularity and pre-war enthusiasm is being displayed by the two lower classes. Sic ' em Frosh ! Give ' em hell Sophomores. The Sophomores are so greatly outnumbered that the Freshmen have easy victories. Twenty- three ' s hopes of canes and white vests were shattered when the Frosh captured the cane lush. The second year men came back though and succeeded in plastering the campus with posters despite the efforts of the Frosh. The Frosh are also resplendent in new " dinks " , noble emblems of indignity. The Uni- versity band has again been organized. The Varsity football team has started to fulfill tlie predictions for a successful season by defeating the Alumni team by a score of 20 to 6. Coach Courtright ' s stars showed the effects of the short practice and performed like veterans. Social events occupied a prominent place this week ; fraternities and sororities were giving reunion parties. Sigma Alpha Epsilon entertained with a dance at the Riverside Lanai. PAGE 175 II ' — UM nr.- — an aa— an— ' -iiH — nN Haf " — — " The Artemisia 1921 - September 23 — Announcement has been made that the government will establish a large radio plant on the University campus to co-operate vs ith the new ly established aeroplane mail service. This is one of the most important acquisitions that the University has made in some years and coming together with the fact that the government will establish here the only rare and precious metals experiment station in the United States makes us feel proud of the honor that we are re- ceiving. The football team is practicing for its first real game of the season with the team from the Davis Agricultural College. Miss Mack was hostess to the entire student body at a get-together dance. Boy, some skid. We sure got together. Phi Delta Tau entertained at a delightful dancing party at the Riverside. Open season has been declared on Frosh and the motto, " Give the lake the benefit of the doubt " has been adopted by the Sophs. Splash, splash, and again splash. September 30 — Davis Aggies have gone home again on the short end of the score. Seven to three tells the tale. The first student body meeting of the year was held and the good old Nevada spirit was manifest in the actions of the large number of students present. A student body election was held to fill places left vacant by students not returning to school. Noble Waite was elected Junior Represen- tative and Leslie Bruce was elected Assistant Editor of the Sagebrush. Lin- coln Hal) initiates. The Frosh all have the blues. Charles Chatfield of the class of ' 21 has been selected as Nevada ' s next Rhodes scholar. The Uni- versity band was one of the features of the football game. The Block N Society gave the first big campus dance of the year in honor of the Davis team. October 7- — The San Francisco American Legion team was unable to withstand the onslaught of the Nevada warriors and was forced to accept the small end of a 47 to 7 score. The third varsity took the Reno High School into camp with a score of 12 to 0. Lincoln Hall had a memorable shooting scrap. Fat Harker was badly scared but suffered no other ill consequences from his hair raising adventure. The Gobblers are again active on the campus, the Nevada PAGE 176 4., .._. „_„_„_,,_ Xhe Artemisia 1921 ,«_„._.. — THE QUADRANGLE MANZANITA ._.._..

The Woman ' s League gave a dance in the gymnasium to raise funds to send delegates to the western convention at Pullman, Washington. The dance wrs a huge success. Delta Delta Delta entertained at a tea dansant and Pi Beta Phi at a party at Bowers Mansion. October 14 — Nevada Varsity again proved victorious, trouncing the Mare Island Sailors by a score of 28 to 0. The exodus for the California game has already started. The Freshmen hay-ride was given at Bowers Mansion. The Frosh proclaim it a great success; Sophs claim it a frost. Few upperclassmen present, the rest proclaim it a decided frost. Phi Delta Tau purchased a new fraternity house on University Avenue. Phi Sigma Kappa entertained at its annual picnic at Bowers Mansion. October 21— Nevada fell before the onslaught of the California " wonder team " by a score of 79 to 7. At least Nevada has the credit of being the first team to score on the Blue and Gold this year. The bleachers at Berkeley looked like an assembly of the A. S. U. N. Nearly the whole of the University and a large part of Reno were present to see the battle. The students commandeered every available means of transportation in order to reach the game; broken down lizzies, side door pullmans and the monkey deck of locomotives were in demand, and for a week before the game places h ad been reserved. The trip pioved a huge success even though the Sagebrushers were forced to take the bitter pill of an overwhelming defeat. For the students and townspeople who were unable to make the trip to the bay city a miniature football game, based upon telegraphic reports, was shown in the gymnasium. Its success was so great that it was decided to operate the miniature chart for every game that Nevada had away from home. Games scheduled with the Pacific Fleet team and with St. Marys College have been cancelled. Ye gods, cinch notices are out; a third of the semester is over already. I. O. A. O. entertained at a J: panese tea party during the week. ... 4. PAGE 178 + 1 j- Artemisia 1921 October 28 — Laggards from the California game are still drifting home. Snow offers a good excuse to miss school once in a while. Tin lizzies are still stalled at the summit. The Frosh have finally given the big block N on Peavine its semi- annual coat of whitewash. The big letter on the hill is again resplendent. The Associated Students is erecting a large new score-board. Delta Delta Delta entertained at a clever " stunt " party at the home of Miss Editha Brown. November 4 — The Sagebrushers journeyed to Salt Lake and succeeded in trimmmg the Mormons 14 to 7. The game was shown on the miniature chart in the gym and as much pep was displayed as if the game had been played on Mackay Field. Nevada is going to put in a strong bid for the championship of the Rocky Mountain region. Sigma Nu was host at a Hallowe ' en dance at the Riverside Lanai. Delta Delta Delta entertained at a party at the home of Mrs. James Nyswander. I. O. A. O. was hostess to the faculty and student body m its annual hard-times dance in the University gymnasium. November 11 — The fighting Nevadans defeated the Utah Aggies, the acknowledged champions of the Rocky Mountain Conference, in a hard fought game on Mackay Field by a score of 2 1 to 0. The last two victories have evened the I stinging defeat received from California. During the halves of the game when I attention was relaxed and cigarettes and pipes were lit and the girls vended ! huge cargos of hot-dogs, there suddenly appeared headed toward one side of j the field a mob of Frosh escorting a Nevada canary and from the opposite | duection appeared a gang of Sophs herding a porker. These apt specimens I of mammalia bore the numerals of the opposite class. Then ensued a free- for-all which rivaled in ferocity the attack of the Nevada team. For ten min- utes the football field was a seething mass of struggling underclassmen. Hope- lessly outnumbered, the Sophs furnished good material for the future football stars of the Frosh class to practice on. The referee ' s whistle ended the hos- tilities and probably saved the second year men from extermination. The big football rally at the Rialto Theater preceding the game proved a great success.

This marks the disappearance of local fraternities from the Hill and marks the appearance of the fourth national organization on the campus. In a blaze of magnificence and flare of music Lincoln Hall entertained the student body at its annual dance. Pi Beta Phi entertained at a delightful dinner party at the home of Miss Edna Short. Sigma Nu held a stag party at the home of Roland ' illiams in Sparks.

Block N Society is making arrangements to stage the annual Interscholastic Basketball Tournament. Delta Delta Delta celebrated the annual Founder ' s Day. December 9 — The Sagebrush team leaves for Honolulu and a large crowd was present to give the boys a rousmg sendoff. Interclass debates are in progress. Exams loom near; are we or are we not? Mostly not. Pi Beta Phi entertained an informal dancing party at the home of Miss Carr Gardner. January 13 — Grades are out. Yet gods our average is 5 minus. Word has arrived that " Wild Bill " Martin has been selected to lead the Nevada gridiron warriors for the coming year. Phi Sigma Kappa is now installed in its new fraternity house. Sigma Nu started the new semester with a rousing old time smoker. January 20 — Nevada Varsity Football team has returned from Hawaii and basketball practice has been started. Less than a week remains before the first league game. T. he team on its return from Honolulu was met by the entire student body at the station and a real old time welcome was given the men. An old time Nevada stage coach was procured and with the men students in the traces in place of horses, the team was driven through the town. Registration for the second semester is complete and the figures show that 439 students are regis- tered at the University. The Seventh Annual Prospector ' s Short Course, in- augurated by the Mackay School of Mines, has opened and will continue for a period of four weeks.

Too little practice was the main cause for the defeat. Dedication exercises for the new building to house the United States Bureau of Mines Experiment Station were held. I i I February 3 — Nevada Varsity journeyed to the coast and won two decisive victories, the first from St. Ignatius by a score of 22 to 12, and the second from College of Pacific with a score of 38 to 25. Both teams were considered strong con- tenders for the league championship. These two victories more than neutralized the defeat by St. Marys and point the way for Nevada to again become the league champion. Sophomore class entertained at what was perhaps the best dance of the yeai with their ' 49 skid in the gymnasium. It was a bit of the old West and will long live in the memories of those who were there. February 10 — The Varsity basketball squad took the widely known Sacramento Ameri- can Legion squad into camp with a score of 39 to 27. The Sophomore de- bating team won a unanimous decision over the Freshmen team in the first de- bate of the interclass series. The He-jinx has been once more and everybody voted it one of the best ever held, including three inquisitive co-eds, who added a little excitement to the evening. Grads old and new were present at the affair and aided in the evening ' s entertainment. One of the features of the evening was the examining committee of the American Association of Uni- versities who pronounced the mentality of the Freshmen of a high grade while that of the Seniors was remarkably poor, and deduced from these facts that the faculty was in the main responsible for the decrease in knowledge. The fact was also developed that an illicit still had been in operation for a considerable period in ihe chemistry building and that the students of chemistry paid more attention to the formulae for making home brew than to the regular curicula. Following the examination the evening was devoted to entertainment and just before the party broke up the gang passed in review of the buns, hot dogs, pickles, coffee and doughnuts. It was announced that the University of Nevada 4.. — . PAGE 184 I The Artemisia 1921 would be represented by a team in the rifle shoot held among the R. O. T. C. units of the Ninth Corps Area. The second stunt night of the year was held at Lincoln Hall and this time there was no shooting scrap to mar the festivities. Delta Delta Delta entertained at a dance at the Riverside Lanai. Fehruar ' 17 — Nevada Varsity was again victorious, defeating the Reno American Legion team to the tune 25 to 1 3 and trimming Santa Clara 25 to 1 L The Women s Varsity also emerged victorious in their game defeating the Zeller- bach team from San Francisco by a score of 68 to 3. John Harrison and Howard Westervelt were selected to represent Nevada in the intercollegiate debate with Brigham Young University. The Nevada R. O. T. C. rifle team competed in a rifle shoot with other teams representing colleges in the western R. O. T. C. department. February 24 — That Nevada has one of the best basketball teams on the coast was shown by the two defeats registered against the crack Olympic Club team from San Francisco, the first by a score of 30 to 18 and the second by a score of 22 to 20. Track practice has started in anticipation of the meet with Davis Agri- cultural College. Rifle shooting has been made a minor sport by the action of the student body and a circle N will be granted for participation in the sport. Delta Delta Delta entertained with a dancing party in honor of its new initiates. The Women ' s Varsity was entertained at a dinner by the members of Alpha Tau Omega. March 3 — Nevada again proved its mettle by taking an even break in two games with the Los Angeles Blues, winning the first game with a score 36 to 19 and losing the second by a score of 23 to 1 9. The Blues were on their way to enter the National championships at Kansas City and the showing made by the Nevada players was considered so good that the merchants of Reno started a subscrip- tion and raised enough money to send the team back to represent the state. Twenty-five high school basketball teams are now on the campus battling for PAGE 185 " - The Artemisia 1921 " the annual championship of the Nevada Interscholastic League, held each year under the auspices of the Block N Society. The women ' s varsity has returned home after a hard trip to the coast, winning two games and losing the third by the scant margin of two points to the Oregon Agriculture team of Corvallis, Oregon. " His Majesty Bunker Bean " was played before a packed house at the Rialto Theatre, the play being seen by the members of the visiting High School teams. According to a telegram received from the University of Cah- fornia the " Bruin " varsity will forfeit the final intercollegiate basketball game of the season, again sidesteppmg a victorious Nevada team. The green waters of Manzanita Lake are now graced by the presence of a pair of large white swans, a gift from Ely. A dance was given in the gymnasium by the Block N Society in honor of the " Blues. " An informal dance was given by the Stray Greek organization at the Century Club. March W— The Varsity proved that Nevada was well represented on the basketball map at the national games at Kansas City. Entered at the last minute the team made its way to the third round before being eliminated by the fast Kansas City Athletic Club, the winner of the tournament. In the first game Nevada met and defeated the crack Osage Athletic Club team by a score of 35 to 25 and in the second game won from Tulsa University 25 to 2 1 . In the last game they were defeated by the K. C. A. C. 40 to 1 9. Reno High School again won the Nevada interscholastic basketball championship, defeating Carson City High in the last game of the tournament by a score of 24 to 13. The Fallon girls were also victorious, defeating Winnemucca, last year ' s champions, in the final game by a score of 3 1 to 29. Three hundred University students made the pilgrimage to Carson City to see the State Legislature in action. The Car- son trip, while not a tradition or custom of the University, bids fair to become one in a few years. An enjoyable day was spent in the capitol city and the rerurn trip was made in a special train late in the evening. Sigma Alpha tL,psilon celebrated the 65 th anniversary of the founding of the national I fraternity. I PAGE 1 86 - The Artemisia 1921 .

Forced to play a different style than the one they usually used and coupled with this the fact that one of Nevada ' s star players was out of the game due to illness, the women were outplayed and took the short end of the score. Ten new members were elected by Phi Kappa Phi, honor fraternity for students whose grade through- out the university course was ninety per cent or greater. Seven delegates from the Nevada Y.W.C.A. attended the mid-year conference at San Jose. The Gobblers bid fair to become an national organization. A new chapter has been formed on the Stanford campus. March 24 — The first big intercollegiate debate of the year was won by Nevada from the team representing Brigham Young University by a unanimous decision. The members of the Nevada team were John Harrison and Howard We?ter- veit. The 32nd annual Social Hygiene Conference was held under the direc- tion of the U. S. Bureau of Education and the Public Health Service jointly associated with various colleges and universities throughout the United States was held in the Educational Building. An inter-fraternity council has been formed at the University with members from the four national fraternities and with the pjurpose of unifying and controlling the fraternity activities. The University faculty is making important changes in the courses that will be taught next year. Requirements for graduation in the College of Arts and Science and the courses in the College of Engineering have been remodeled. The courses of the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering which have been grouped under one head will now become two separate and distinct schools. Each will have its own prescribed course of study, which will differ materially from that given in the past and allow the students following the electrical branch to specialize more in its kindred subjects than has been possi- ble before, and the same will be true of the mechanical engineer. Greater stress w;ll be laid upon some subjects not strictly technical, such as economics, psychology, and others which are konwn to be important to the engineer. - " + PAGE 188 - The Artemisia 1921 Word has been received of the death in Oakland of Dwight B.

The Sagebrush is making preparations to receive wireless press reports sent out by other members of the Southwest and Pacific Intercollegiate Press Associations. Plans are under way for the formation of a new dramatic society. A joint meeting of Delta Alpha Epsilon and Clionia was held for the formation. April 7— Alpha Tau Omega ran true to prediction by winning the first track and field meet of the season between the Nevada Greek letter fraternities and Lincoln Hall, The meet developed some good men for the meet with Davis. The big Block N on the hill received its semi-annual coat of whitewash from the Freshmen. Major A. H. Bailey has been appointed to assist Col. Ryan in the Military Department. Gladys Dunkle was chosen by a vote of the stu- d- -nt body to act as the sponsor for the Reno Aerial Mail Hangar. At a meet- ing of the Board of Regents it was decided that a tuition fee of $30 per semester will be charged students who are not residents of the State of Nevada. Plans for the summer session are approaching completion. The center of in- terest will be the demonstration school and in addition there will be courses in psychology, history, socialogy, literature, economics and languages. Clionia has decided to give us its policy of promoting dramatics in favor of the newly formed dramatic society. The Military Ball given by the Reserve Officers Training Corps was the last formal ball of the semester and was one of the most successful of its nature ever given in the gymnasium.

Word has finally been received from Davis Agricultural Col- lege that the Davis-Nevada track meet will be held as scheduled. A aril 21 — Mackay Day has come and gone. First on the order of events was the transportation of the gow-house to the gym. A continuous caravan of chair- laden men moved from the gow-house to the gym and before nine it was ready to receive the five hundred people who would be present at the annual Mackay Day dmner and festivities. The ' abor battalion then descended upon the athletic field where it ma- neuvered until noon. Jumping pits were rejuvenated, hurdles mended and a hundred other things attended to. Under the determined attacks of these knights of labor the track took on a new appearance. The score board near the bleachers, long since a victim of some particularly playful Washoe zephyr, was transported to its rightful place near the training quarters. The bleachers shed their winter ' s accumulation of leaves, papers and back issues of the Sagebrush. A hundred brooms tickled the concrete terraces until Dutch Cleanser could have done no more. The fairest woman of Manzanita could gurgle over the exploits of her hero with- out worrying about soiling the borrowed dress. In addition to the workers there was a battalion of rooters who con- scientiously avoided any activity that might be termed plebian. One man, over- come by his strenuous attempts to escape work, collapsed when a friend pre- sented him with a shovel. This, fortunately, was the only casualty of the day. At 1 o ' clock the rumor that the " feed " was being put out completely de- moralized the hungry horde. A stampede for the gym followed, rakes, hoes and shovels all being left on the field of honor. The final windup of the day was the interclass track meet, won by the Freshmen with a large margin of points. The Senior class started a new tradition by holding a cut day and going on a picnic to Bowers Mansion. PAGE 1 91 " " - The Artemisia 1921 — 4.

PAGE 1 9 6 - The Artemisia 1921 " HIS MAJESTY BUNKER BEAN " j LION I A Society chose as its dramatic presentation this year t he four-act comedy " His Majesty Bunker Bean, " by Lee Wilson Dodd from the novel by Harry Leon Wilson. Following the suc- cess of last year when the society presented " A Pair of Sixes, " it was decided to have practice that the play might be staged at an early date for the benefit of the visiting high school students at the Basketball Tournament. With this in mind the cast put in six weeks of hard practice before March 3rd, on which date the play was presented at the Rialto Theatre before a crowded house. The success of the play and the future of Clionia dramatic productions lay not only in a well chosen cast, but was due in no small part to the excellent work of Professor Turner as director. It is difficult to give just credit to the director as his work is unseen by the audience, however, the work of Professor Turner in this respect was fittingly commented upon in an article in the Sage- brush when it said, " As Coach Courtright put the boys on the floor and left victorious so Professor Turner put the cast on the stage and carried off a mar- velous success. Too much cannot be said of his splendid coaching. It is to him that this great success of the play is due. His untiring efforts and his never failing interest, supplementing his capability for carrying out this enterprise and his skill as play director has assured Glioma success in its dramatic under- takings. " The plot of " His Majesty Bunker Bean " revolves around the offices of J. B. Breede, a traction magnate, who has in his employ Young Bunker Bean, a stenographer. Young Bean, a simple sort of chap, thru the powers of Ram Tah, a certain " once was " Egyptian King, suddenly becomes possessed of self-confidence. No matter that his office mate Max Bulger and the psychics Balthazar and Countess Casinova have connived to part him from ten thousand dollars left him by his aunt. Bunker Bean with childish credulity believes all and takes Ram Tah into his heart. With Ram Tah behind him Bunker Bean is no longer the shy stenographer at fifteen per — with each hour his self-confi- dence grows until he " puts over " a four hundred thousand dollar deal on Pops, his employer, and adds to this his daughter, the Flapper, as Mrs. Bunker Bean. As a sub-plot, walking hand in hand with the courtship of Bunker Bean and the Flapper, is the romance between Bud Matthews the " greatest left- hand pitcher in the world, " and Gwendolyn, eldest daughter of " Pops " ♦_,. PAGE 1 97 .. — 4. I ♦«.. The Artemisia 1921 Breede. Bud Matthews, a pal of Bunker ' s, stands behind and helps Bunker when he discovers Ram Tah is only " breakfast food " and Bunker in turn is responsible for the meeting of Big Sister and the Greatest Pitcher. Ernie Whepple, a lizzie boy, is renounced by " Gwen " and in the end both parties are married by the " Very Young Minister " who has never married anybody before. The play thruout was filled with Wall Street life, with big business, with complex situations and with a sprinkling of laughs to keep up the spirit of the play. The cast of the play, which was particularly well chosen, consisted of the following: THE CAST Pops — J. B. Breede, a traction magnate Earl Wooster Bulger — A sporty stenographer in Breede ' s employe Harlow North Larabee — A business associate of Breede ' s Francis Walsh Flapper — Marie Breede, Pop ' s younger daughter Dorothy Harrington Mason — Head clerk in Breede ' s offic e Laurence Quill Bunker Bean — A very efficient stenographer, but lacking in confidence in himself Philip R.

Howard Westervelt -+ i PAGE 1 98 ! 1 — " — " — " " — " " - The Artemisia 1921 SENIOR PLAY FOUR-ACT melodrama, " Under Cover, " was chosen this year by the Class of 1921 as the Senior play. The plot is built around a certain Stephen Denby who smuggles a pearl necklace from Paris. Taylor, the customs official, allows him to go thru uninter- rupted and then follows him to the summer home of the Harringtons. Ethel Cartwright, a friend of the Harringtons, is at the house and she and Denby form the basis of the love scenes in the play. Amy Cartwright, sister of Ethel, has pawned a necklace to secure money to pay a gambling debt and has re- ported it as stolen to secure the insurance money. Taylor has trapped Amy and through a threat to send her to prison, forces Ethel to help him capture Denby. In the end everything co mes out well as Denby is a secret service man on the trail of crooked customs officials — and Taylor, not Denby goes to prison. The last curtain falls upon the picture of Ethel and Denby in a typical movie close-up. Under the able direction of Professor Turner the play was produced at the Rialto Theater before a very good house and was very well received giving proof both of the ability of Professor Turner as a coach and the ability of the class to stage a modern first rate production. The cast was made up of the following members of Class of ' 2 1 : James Duncan — Assistant to Daniel Taylor..... John Knight Harry Gibbs — A Custom Inspector John Douglas Daniel Taylor — A Deputy in the Customs Arthur Harms Sarah Peabody Helen Fuss Ethel Cartwright Enola Badger Amv Cartwright Emily Burke Michael Harrington Morris T.

PAGE 200 •fvH— Nir— The Artemisia 1921 DEBATE ogica EBATE and oratory are becoming more important in the University with each passmg year. A reahzation seems to have come to the students that their education is not complete unless they have learned to present their thoughts to an audience of people in a pleasing and manner. The result of this realization has been an mcreased interest m debating and in Clionia, the organization fostermg debatmg. A number of years ago, the first successful debatmg club m this University was formed. Prior to the organization of this club , several societies had been formed only to die out for lack of support from the students. The new organi- zation had its periods of weakness and several times failure was in sight. Nevertheless the debating club struggled along, reorganizing itself under the name of Clionia, and has so firmly established debating as an inter-coUegiate activity, that the University now sets aside a sum of money each year for the use of the society in defraying the expenses of Nevada ' s inter-collegiate de- baters. During the year nineteen twenty-one, Clionia formed two debating con- tracts which specified that the question to be argued should be of present-day interest. One of these contracts was with the Brigham Young University of Provo, Utah ; the other, with the College of the Pacific of San Jose, California. The debate with Brigham Young University was held at the University of Nevada. The question discussed was: " Resolved, that Congress should pass a law prohibiting strikes in public utilities. Constitutionality granted. " The repre- sentatives of this University upheld the negative side of the question. The speakers for B. Y. U. were E. W. Parkinson and Frank B. Newman, while John Harrison and Howard Westervelt spoke for Nevada. Nevada was unani- mously awarded the decision. The second inter-collegiate debate was held in the auditorium of the Col- lege of the Pacific. The negative side of the question: " Resolved, that the Constitution should be amended to provide for the nomination of Presidential candidates by nation-wide direct primaries, " was supported by John Harrison and Carroll Wilson. In the inter-class debates, the same question discussed with the College of the Pacific was used. The speakers for the different classes were: Earl Wooster and Margaret Barnes, Seniors; Francis Walsh and Norma Brown, Juniors ; Carroll Wilson and Howard Westervelt, Sophomores ; Sidney Robin- son and Cecil Green. Freshmen. 1 +_„_.._.. PAGE 201 +._., The Artemisia 1921 .. — I ! T. Braun H. Fuss G. Dunkle E. Badger V. Higgins N. Brown . Dallas A. Humphreys M. Elsie E. Steinheimer E.

W. Hill ' s class in Shakespearian Drama. Its purpose is to develop histrionic talent among the young women of the University, and to awaken appreciative interest in dramatic interpretation by the presentation of standard plays. It is the intention of Delta Alpha Epsilon to present two plays a year. " Overtones " was staged at the Century Club in March and plans are under way for another play that will be presented in the new auditorium of the Edu- cation Building some time near the end of the semester. New members are elected from the Sophomore and Junior classes at the end of each year. The requirements for membership are a major or minor in English, good scholarship, and a genuine aptitude for dramatic expression. PAGE 203 TW f — ,_.,_. Xhe Artemisia 1921 - R. Moyer C.

Dramatic Manager Anthony Zeni Debate Manager Professor A. E. TuRNER....Facu ii; Advisor Howard Westervelt .....Publicity IGHT years ago there was formed on the Campus an organization called the Debating Club. The mam purpose of the society was the furthering of debate among the college students. With the growth of the University this organization likewise expanded. Four years ago the Debating Club was reorganized and assumed the name that it now bears, the Clionia Society. Under the constitution of this latter society, debat- ing, dramatics, and literary work were to be fostered. That the society has suc- ceeded in fulfilling the original ideas of the organizers is shown by the large membership which it now enjoys. The word Clionia is taken from the Greek. It means the proclaimer of the truth, and it has always been the aim of the officers and members to uphold this and all that it symbolizes. When the society was reorganized. Professor A. E. Turner became the faculty advisor. He was one of the leaders in the work of reorganization from the time he became a member of the faculty, and he has been untiring m his efforts to make Clionia a bigger and better society. Both in dramatic and de- bating work. Professor Turner works unceasingly, and much of the success along these lines may be attributed to him. During the year nineteen twenty-one, Clionia fostered interclass debates, and intercollegiate debates with Brigham Young University of Provo, Utah and with the College of the Pacific at San Jose, California. The debating team from Brigham Young came to Reno and lost to Nevada, while the College of the Pacific debate was held at San Jose. In the spring, " His Majesty Bunker Bean " was played successfully in Reno, and its success was sufficient to warrant the cast m playing at Virginia City and Carson City. PAGE 20S - The Artemisia 1921 — - — 4. A keener interest in debates is one of the aims of the society and it is hoped that in time the work fostered by CHonia will be one of the features of the student body activities. Although debating was the main issue of the organiza- tion at the time it was formed, dramatics now plays as important a part in the work of the society and much interest in this latter art is being shown by the students. Plans have already been completed for much of the work of the society for the coming year and if but a small part of the present plans mature, nineteen twenty-two should be the most successful year that the society has yet seen. I PAGE 206 The Artemisia 1921 - DRAMATIC SOCIETY T a meeting on March 3 1 st, called by committees from Delta Alpha Epsilon and the Clionia Society, a University Dramatic Society was launched. This society, according to charter members made up from those who have taken part in the different plays staged m the last two years, will combine the dramatic features of the two organizations for the purpose of study, discussion and presentation of dramatic productions. As the constitution of the new organization rounds into form big things are seen for its future. The charter membership has made any student, graduate or undergraduate, eligible for membership and has allowed the admission of faculty members who are particularly interested in the drama. It is the hope of the society to present several one-act plays each year for the student body as well as to stage one large production to tour the state as did the plays re- cently produced by the Clionia Society. With the completion of the stage in the Educational Building it should be short time until this society can become not only a part of but an active factor in student life at the University. The charter membership of the organization is made up of the following: FACULTY Professor H. W. Hill Professor A. E. Turner STUDENTS 1 I Evelyn Walker Lois Codd Margaret Barnes Virginia Higgins Ethel Steinheimer Helena Shade Adelaide Humphreys George Duborg Willis Pressel Jack Ross Laurence Quill Ruth Moyer Gladys Dunkle Enola Badger Earl Wooster Philip R.

It was very successful for a while, but after a year or so went out of existence. The next organization and the one that is at present in existence, was organized in 1913 under the direction of Professor Haseman. The next year Miss Denny came to the University and took over the direction of the club. Under her direction it has continued to grow, until now with Miss Diehm as director, it is one of the recognized activi- ties of the campus. Those girls who are interested in music and who have voices suited for chorus work are encouraged to join the organization. They are not only trained in music and harmony but are brought into contact with the very best types of music. They also gain a large measure of self confidence by frequently appearing before the public. The Glee Club sings at many functions throughout the year — at Y. W. C. A. services, faculty functions, and at Baccalaureate and Commencement services. Christmas carrols were sung at the Century Club this year and a performance was scheduled at the University but because no dates could be obtained the latter appearance was not given. The annual spring recital of the Club will be given on April 22 in the audi- torium of the new Educational Building. The following night the organization will go to Carson City and give a recital there.

The need for such a body has long existed and has at last met with response. Its purposes are to promote the wel- fare of the University, to bring about a better understanding between fraterni- ties and members, and to constitute a clearing-house for all fraternal affairs. It will seek to raise standards of scholarship, to see that all college competition is fair, and to prevent the rise of " politics. " Impartiality must be the watchword of selection in student body and athletics: " The best man for the place, be he your man, my man, the Hall ' s man, or a town man. " Besides equalizing op- portunity, the Council will endeavor to promote friendly and social relations, discuss all questions of policy which may arise, and lay down the rules of good sportsmanship for fraternities. The first meeting was held in February, 1 92 1 . Membership is composed of two representatives from each of the four member fraternities. A faculty member is to be elected, who, upon his acceptance, will serve in an advisory capacity. Each fraternity has granted to the council sufficient power that it may fulfill the functions for which it was created. A constitution has been adopted and fraternity representatives are now prepared for the big task of establishing precedent. I PAGE 21 3 The Artemisia 1921 ■- C. Oliver T. Middleton H. Luce J.

When at last the semester is over, And our pens are twisted and dried ; When our exes are horrors past and gone And our hopes have faded and died ; We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it ; Lie back for a week or two Till the master of awesome cinches Shall start us to worry anew. And then the bad shall be punished ; Their bodies of clothes they shall bare; In the water cold they shall struggle and gasp. For strong arms shall hold them there. And, as they stagger away, Their comrades their wrongs they shall tell And shall curse the master of cinches To the furthermost corner of hell.

" ONE WEEK RIGHT IN LINE There was once an editor who was knotvn and beloved throughout the whole country. One tveek he received a neiv suit, two chickens, a blushing bride, a gro- cery order, an efficient maid, a ntod- ern home, the latest automobile and a legacy. But they were only titles to stories ambitious authors had written. So the editor is still single. Old Robinson (inspecting young R ' s " personal expense " account for last term) — " What do you mean by $40 for tennis? " Young R (easily) — " Oh, that ' s for a cou- ple of rackets I had to have. " Old R (severely) — " Yes, I understand, but I think we used to call them bats. " WELL, WELL! " Great excitement at the country club. " " Over what? " " A countryman tried to join. " ♦ ♦ ♦ THECAUSE " They say there is going to be a general rise in bread. " " Dear me! What is the cause of it? ' " I suppose it is the yeast they put in the dough. " " If Shakespeare were here today, ivoidd he write for the movies? " " Sure he would. He tvas a practical man. And he ' d have ' em throiving venison pasty, too. " SONNET TO A FLIVVER (After Shakespeare XVIII) Shall I repair thee on a summer ' s day? I might use language too intem- perate : Rough roads do shake you up, as well they may, And guarantees have all too short a date : Sometimes too loud your little engine whines. And often is your paint by n.ud bedimm ' d : To buy yet more new parts my purse declines, By this and that garage too often trimm ' d ; If thy installments long remain un- paid, I ' ll lose possession of thee that thou knowest: Some day shall junkmen take thee for their trade. When all to pieces finally thou goest ; So long as autos speed where cops can ' t see. So long, dear Flivver, I ' ll not part with thee.

" Wooster starts raving ♦ ♦ ♦ THE NEW ORDER The late W. D. Howells believed in votes for women and all that sort of thing, but at the same time he be- ieved that women ought to cling to the home in the good old-fashioned way. He chuckled one afternoon over an anecdote about two new women. " At last, " the first of these new women said — " at last I ' ve found out where my husband spends all his eve- nings. " " Where does he spend them? " said the second woman excitedly. " At home, " said the first new woman. " You see, I had to stay in myself last night. " ♦ ♦ ♦ YOU SAID IT The game is done; the cheering crowds retire. Soft twilight blends the evening and the day; While hostile flags glint in the sunset ' s fire The murmur of the shouting ends away. Calm night ensues; the placid stars appear — A thousand happy-hearted throng- the street In victory ' s carousal; comes a cheer For those who felt the .otinging of defeat Around the supper-board the men recall Each varied play in all its close detail — With " That was great the way you snagged the ball. " " We gave ' em hell, " and " Jack, you couldn ' t fail ... " So games will pass, while foe contends with foe And Time still spins the swift recurring days; While Vanquished long.s for the avenging blow And Victor seeks a greater share of praise. Oh, victory itself, or fair defeat! — How little matter in the sum of things. If to their foes the men show no retreat. If with themselves their resolution clings — To win, and in the winning, gain esteem Of those, who fighting, find them unafraid; To lose, and still in losing, leave their team Though vanquished, yet undaunted — undismayed! Wooster — " Don ' t you think she has a rare complexion? " Frank — " Rather well done, I ' d call it.

" Your written references seem to be all right, but tell me more about yourself. " " Well, my wife kept a household ac- count for thirty days. One night after supper I sat down and in less than an hour found out how much we owed our grocer. " " Hang up your hat and coat, " said the employer, with a glad smile. " The job is yours. " CROOKED BOSTON Mr. Penn — They say the streets in Boston are frightfully crooked. Mr. Hub — They are. Why, do you know when I first went there I could hardly find my way around? " That must be embarassing. " " It is. The first week I was th rre I wanted to get rid of an old cat we had, and my wife got me to take it to the river a mile away. " " And you lost the cat all right " " Lost nothing! I never would have found my way home if I hadn ' t followed the cat. " NO FOOL THE PESSIMIST The pessimist ' s a funny man. He always looks around. He never sees the pretty girls, But he only sees the ground. nd when he goes to see a girl He wrings his hands and cries, He always sees the freckles, But he never sees her eyes. And when he sees a picture He almost makes me faint. He never sees the picture, But only just the paint. There was a sweet baby named Buhla Whose beau was employed by a juhla. He gave her a ring. Diamonds, pearls, everything. And now the poor guy ' s in the cuhla. Gnaggs — I want you to understand madam, that I am no fool. Mrs. Gnaggs — For once I agree with you.

Then he breathed a prayer to heaven For the courage he did not feel, And with a mighty effort Broke open the fateful seal. He thought of all the lectures Through which he had peacefully slept, And the host of " Not prepared, sir ' s " Because of the dates he had kept. But it had come — here before him, On this his day of days, What! Lord, is it true — sixteen hours And everyone of them A ' s? His blood began tingling wildly. He could hardly endure the shock — And then with a yawn that was half a groan He awoke — and turned off the clock. " How come you to get that gang of city fellers to come out and spade up your farm? " inquired Clem Jeter of the grizzled old farmer. " When I drove by there a while ago they was a spadin ' all over the place. " " Well, I wasn ' t feelin ' like workin ' my- self, " replied the old farmer, " so I sorta insinuated down at the postoffice tuther day that I had seen a feller burying some- thing that looked like a gallon of likker tuther night.

For his overhead expense was very low. Oft his neighbors came deploring How the rents in town were soaring. But the Prophet prophesied that they would fall. All their apprehensions fearful He dispelled with omens cheerful, And predicted great prosperity for all. As he sat one day foretelling To a client, in his dwelling. It was given over to an auctioneer. And, despite the tenants clamor. It was sold beneath the hammer To a pompous, plutocratic Profiteer. Bright and early on the morrow, To the happy Prophet ' s sorrow. Came the Landlord, and he said, " It comes to pass From to-day all rents are doubled. " And the Prophet, sorely troubled. Watched him mount and ride away upon his ass. Then he cried, " It is a pity. For throughout this mighty city There are scarcely any rentals half so dear. Yet it is to be expected That we all shall be ejected If we dare attempt to flght this Profiteer! " All the neighbors gathered near him. Very much displeased to hear him. How he prophesied calamities galore. And they cried, " We ' re being- swindled! " And the Prophet ' s profits dwindled. For they all refused to pay him as before. When the Landlord, unsuspecting, Came upon his ass, collecting. Cried the Prophet: " Wicked Profiteer, repent! Thanks to you, I ' ve grown so gloomy That my clients come not to me, And I cannot raise the money for iny rent! " " You would find it profitable If, as Prophet, you were able To declare all other rentals will increase Far beyond the modest flgger Which I ' m asking for the bigger. Brighter, better flats which I desire to lease. " As he grasped the situation. Cried the Prophet, with elation: " Hold! From Allah I have just received a hunch That the Bagdad rents are rising In a manner most surprising! Let us talk the matter over while we lunch. " And he gave that information As a heav ' nly inspiration. All his neighbors paid him for the sage advice; Then, for fear of new increases. Hurried off to sign their leases And were glad to pay the Profiteer his price. So the Prophet was provided With the flat where he resided Free of rental, and it also came to pass That his neighbors, never hearing Of the Prophet ' s profiteering. In their gratitude, presented him an ass. OOR COtAPLEy- OKi CHROMATIC It sore disturbs My addled head Why blue laws make us All see red. Quoth the Landlord, unrelenting: " There ' s no profit in repenting. Yet I badly need an able Prophet here. To correct the strange impression Which amounts to an obsession That my rentals are unreasonablj dear. We confess to much disappointment at the way things are going. We never dreamec that as soon as we got men sober most of them would go to stealing.

Its appeal to the olfactory, gustatory and gastronomic senses are admitted by every one. Its aesthetic appeal, however, is not generally recognized. This little ballad is written to the exposition of the little known beauties of our beloved Onion. THE BALLAD OF THE BEAUTIFUL ONION AN OBJECT LESSON In the spring, when all men ' s fancies. Fondly turn to things of green. And the groceries brighten As each week new stuff is seen. Nothing gives us greater pleasure Than we get when first we sight Onions — tied in bunches slender — Symphonies in green and white. How anticipation thrills us. Moves us to our very core. When we know, that with the Springtime, Onions have returned once more. There they lie, their fresh, young beauty Shining in the market place As a maid, in soft, green garments. Holds aloft her white, sweet face. And, as in a maiden slender. Curves are soft and gently sweet. So we know our onion ' s tender When its curves are fine and neat. While its crisp and spicy fragrance Wafted through the balmy air Carries with it youth and springtime. Just as does our maiden fair. But when maid becomes a matron. Luscious curves replace straight lines. So our Onion, growing older, Added girth and substance finds. But its beauties never lessen. Th ough expressed in other ways; For a steak in onions smothered Is a lovely sight always. Thus we find that all about us Beauties little known may be, If a touch of inspiration Clears our eyes that we may see. So we sing the noble Onion, Loveliest of all that grows! Universally appealing To the eye, the tongue, the nose. — W. P. ' 23. A member of the medical faculty of the University of Michigan was sent to a small town in the state as an extension lecturer. He was to be introduced to his audience by one of the town fathers, a veteran well known for his passion for oratory. Accordingly, it was arranged by the lecture committee that he should be allowed only a limited time for his introductory remarks. The G. A. R. veteran, as usual, be- gan his speech with a few reminis- cences of the Civil War, and grad- ually worked his way through the succeeding periods of our history. One idea led to another until he finally hit upon the subject of graft. " Graft is everywhere! " he roared. " You will find it in big business, in our Senate, in our House of Repre- senttaives — you will find it in our ed- ucational system — " A pause and a hasty glance at his watch.

She charged him when he stole a kiss with petty larceny. A moment he was quite abashed and then he squeezed her hand. " You ' re wrong, quite wrong, dear, " he replied. " Not petty. That was grand. " Pull many a race is lost Ere even a step is run. And many a coward fails Ere even his work ' s begun, Think big, and your deeds will grow. Think small, and you ' ll fall behind.

I ' m going, I ' m going To a place that ' s not so slow I hear the Cubans gaily toasting Good Old Crow. Why should I stay when my throat is full of pain.

If your income is $2400 a year and you have a diamond ring and an automobile and are married to a brunette girl 26 years old, you take the amount of your income and add your personal prop- erty, subtract your street number, multiply by your height, add your wife ' s height and divide by your telephone number. " If you have a child in the family you subtract $200 from your income, add the amount to your personal property, multiply by your waist measure, subtract the size of your collar and the child ' s age, multiply by the amount you have given to the church the past year, and divide by the number of your automobile license tag. " If there is a second child, you deduct $400 from your income, add the weight and age of your child, divide by the date of your birth, multiply by the size of your mother-in-law. " A teacher tvas explaining to a small boy the difference between the words " concrete " and " abstract. " During the explanation she said that any- thing which was concrete could be seen and that anything which was ab- stract could not be seen. She then asked the little boy to give an example of something that tvas concrete. After scratching his head a second, he re- plied, " My trousers. " She then asked him to give an ex- ample of something that vms ab- stract. He hesitated some time before replying, but finally brighte ned up and burst forth with the answer, " Yours. " A crowded elevator in a downtown office building was nearing the bot- tom of its descent when it suddenly dropped a few feet, recovered, and continued its trip at a normal rate. " It ' s all right, " said the elevator boy reassuringly. " If it had fallen, it would only have meant a couple of stories. " " That ' s all, " replied a portly gen- tleman, casting a solemn eye upward. " Just two — one in the Gazette and one in the Journal. " " I will not be responsible for any debts contracted only by myself, " advertises Mr. Barker of Gary, Ind., who appears to have no confidence in his shopping ability.

In the Land of the Swinging Door. Oh, the shiny rail with its brassy wail.

THE WAY OF IT Sudden shortage — Prices rise. Greet our eyes. Next day scare-heads. Sudden surplus — Prices shot. Do we read it? We do— NOT! " Are caterpillars good to eat? " asked little Tommy at the dinner table. " No, " said his father. " What makes you ask a question like that while we are eat- ing? " " You had one on your lettuce, but it ' s gone now, " replied Tommy. Father — " Tell me child, has that young man of yours any money? " Mary— " Money, father? Why he has just given me a cluster diamond ring, studded with pearls. " Father — " Yes, I know, but has he any money left? " There was a young man so benighted, Who never knew when he was slighted. He went to a party. And ate just as hearty As if he ' d been really invited. ' MIKE ' S ' SINCE JULY THIRST " Mercy me !

She kissed me today Who will kiss her tomorrow? ♦ ♦ ♦ When the years were but infants tossing In the ancient cradle of time, Man wandered the earth like a lost thing, Groping and blind in the slime. And the high gods saw with sorrow, They had only fashioned a slave; So they said: " We must give him a tyrant. If his soul we are to save. " Then they made them the strangest creature Ah! the high gods they were wise! — With heart of brass and hair of gold, And two twin stars for eyes. They filled all her years with beauty. They filled all her hours with fun. But her head they left as empty As the sounding kettle-drum. Oh! they made them the strangest creatiire. And man to her yoke has been bent; Smiles are her cruelest weapons, Her weakness is her strength. She charms by display of slim ankle, She concealeth her ears and her toes; And they gave her red paste for her featui-es And dust to put on her nose. Her talk is an outlander ' s jargon, Given with pouts and with sighs; Her talk is of love and of lovers, Of stars and of moons and of skies. Yes! they made them the strangest creature, And she conquered man with a glance. Yet her day is a yawn or a simper Between a dance and a dance. +-.._..

And the muscles of his scrawny arms Stand out like rubber bands. His nose is sharp, and red, and long. His face not like a man; His head is dense for lack of sense But he learns whate ' er he can. He looks the whole school in the face For he knows not any man. Week in, week out, from morn till night, You can hear his bellows blow; The Sophs, they swing a wicked stick With measured beat and slow. Like the janitor ringing the college bell When the morning sun hangs low. The Students coming back from school Glance in at the open door; They love to see the threatening Soph ' And hear the Freshman roar. To watch the stinging paddle fly Propelled by a Sophomore. He goes on Sunday to the church . And sleeps with all the boys; Hears not the parson pray or preach. In his deep sepulchral voice, And the final songs by the village choir Makes his heart rejoice. Thanks, thanks to thee, my worthy fresh For the amusement thou hast brought; But in your mad career of life. Your joy we count as nought. For on the burning paddle shaped Each Freshman ' s name is wrought. If the girls continue wearing their snappy styles — the low neck and the high skirt will soon be within hailing distance of each other. " Don ' t you think Mildred has perfectly wonderful teeth? " " Yes, but they ' re false. " " How do you know that, my dear? " " Why she told me she inherited them from her mother. " ' JUST SOME ADS " J.

NEVADA ,„_„+ 1 RENO I 1 I I •4 PAGE 33 1 The Artemisia 1921 —■ As usual, during the Lincoln Hall party, the fair maidens from Man- zanita purloined all of the movable knick-knacks that were not fastened down with chains. Souvenirs were all the rage, but when one shy maiden who, when no one was looking, re- moved the picture of a gallant senior from its resting place on the wall, this excuse would not answer. A diabolical plot was in the formation. The young maiden, however, has re- gretted the act and has returned the photograph to its owner. Due to the mitigating circumstances of the case we omit the name of the young lady. Her own account of the case is given below : Once a week at Manzanita Different girls inspect the rooms, Then you see a lot of fussin ' Flourishing of mops and brooms. Then they post the grade they give you Right in public in the hall. Where it ' tracts a lot of ' tention And is duly read by all. Now I have no time for cleanin, ' So I figured out this plan : I would try and fuss these maidens With the picture of a man. So I picked one, tall and handsome, Swiped his picture, placed it there — But, alas, when they inspected, ' Stead of " good " they gave me " fair. " Now you can have your picture back, I ' ll devise another plan, And from this I ' ve learned a lesson — Never place your faith in man. When you ' ve studied half the nig-ht, And you have your lessons right, Who asks you to recite? NOBODY. The way it sounds when the " Varsity " band plays. ♦ ♦ ♦J ♦J THE TACKLE ' S LAMENT The once a proud tackle Much given to cackle, I ' m thru, and my back ' II Be twisted for years. My hinges are rusted. Which makes me disgusted; My beezer is busted And so are my ears. A tackle they called me Till Doc overhauled me And how it appalled me To know I am spent. For now that my back ' II Be tivisted, I tackle No football, but cackle This Tackle ' s Lament! ♦ ♦ ♦ " Don ' t you know that the use of to- bacco shortens your days ? " " Yes, I ' m sure it does. " " Then why do you use it? " " For that very reason. I once tried to quit it and the days were about a week long. " ♦ ♦ ♦ ON THE HIGH SEAS The bashful petty officer was on leave and was having a hard time making conversation. " I suppose you ' ve been in the Navy so long you ' re accustomed thoroughly to sealegs, " she suggested. " I wasn ' t lookin ' at ' em at all, " he blurted, blushing. ..»- PAGE 332 - The Artemisia 1921 •..4. 1 I JAMES D. FINCH Attorney at Law Clay Peters BIdg., Reno, Nevada , ._„4.

She was admiring recently the new jeweled pin that he had given her (and by a process of elimination you may be able to guess who she was). It bore engraved upon it " From A. B. to X. Y.

Just imagine a quart of hooch at fifty cents a bottle. " Thirsty Stranger — " S ' sh! Where can I get it? " Kid — " don ' t know. I said, " just imagine it. " LAMENT OF A FROSH Half in earnest, half in joke. Tell me, maiden, ere I ' m broke, Buying booze and lunch for thee. Tell, oh, tell the truth to me, Ere my cash is all turned loose. Sweetheart, is there any use? LEGGO! Ex-Private Schnapps: " If a flask car- rier ' s wife picks his pocket what does a bootlegger ' s wife do?

" Come de Jedgment Day and St. Peter ' ll say, ' All yo ' dead men come forth. ' Den dey ' ll all come forth. Den he ' ll say, ' All yo ' dead ladies come forth. ' And dey ' ll come forth.

Grabbed the bottle from his pocket — " Empty? Go and get some more! " The melancholy days have come. The saddest of the year; It ' s much too warm for moonshine, And much too cold for darned near beer. -« PAGE 336 - The Artemisia 1921 DJER-KISS? Bill ' s got an awful hang-over from that dance last night. How can you tell? He ' s smellin ' his coat lapel every half minute. • • Girls may carry concealed arms, but many of them surely do not carry concealed legs. ♦ ♦ ♦ IS IT STILL COFFEE? Two young- men walking- along- Chestnut street the other evening- met two girls, recent acquaintances, dressed in the height of fashion — fur coats and hats, expensive looking shoes, and invited them to go to a high-class restaurant. The girls agreed and after they had finished eating, they were asked if they would enjoy a demi-tasse. " Is it some sort of sundae? " inquired one as though there might be some hidden joke in the invitation. " I don ' t think it would go good after a hearty meal, " said the other. The young- fellows gave it up. " Would you like some coffee? " asked one of them. " Sure, " replied the girls in chorus, " that ' s what we was waiting- for youse guys to ask us. " A VITAL QUESTION Co-ed — You cad! Is it true that you bet that you could take me out to din- ner tonight? Stude (haughtily) — Well, are you coming or aren ' t you? Co-ed — How — How much did you bet first? ♦ ♦ ♦ The skeeter is a bird of prey, Which flies about at night, About three-eighths of it is beak. And five-eighths appetite, And fifteen-eighths or so is buzz. And nineteen-eighths is bite. NO SUCH LUCK Janet Marshall (entering music store) — " Have you ' Kissed Me In the Moon Light! ' ? " Clerk — " I don ' t think so; I ' m new here. May- be it was the other man. " Jimmy was a footballer, Jimmy was a back — ' Jimmy hit another guy. Made an awful whack; Jimmy made a bad mistake For the selfsame scout That Jimmy poked upon the nose Quickly stretched him out. WE NEVER DID Money talks, but you ' ve got to get pretty close to it to understand what it says. ♦ ♦ ♦ Schoolboy Conceptions: Etc. is a sign used to make believe you know more than you do. The equator is a menagerie lion running around the center of the earth. The zebra is a horse in a bathing suit and used to illustrate the letter Z. A vacuum is noth- ing shut up in a box. Tessie — " Agnes always finds something to harp on. " Bessie — " Yes; I only hope she ' ll be as fortu- nate in the next world. " Fresh — " What became of that shimmy dancer you used to go with?

Pulse ain ' t hitting only now and then. Tongue is kind o ' dry. Fish-Ilke is my eye. I ' m the most miserable of men. As is often said, AVine, when it is red. Makes you feel as pepful as can be. When its joy has fled Feel as though you ' re dead. That is what is happening to me. IT ' S AN ILL WIND— The wind was blowing an awful blast As down the brick lined walk there passed A maid, who we. could plainly see Wore stockings rolled below the knee. Of course we did not see her face She ' s therefore safe from all disgrace, But this we ' ll say with zest and vim She had some pretty dimpled limb. — Kismet. Queenie — Have you ever ki.=sed a girl? Oswald — Is that an invitation or are jathering statistics? In its men-tal appeal, the narrow one- piece short skirt of the winter season is on a parallel with the snug-fitting one-piece bathing suit of last summer. If the Dean ever puts his arm across your shoulder and murmus, " My dear boy, " you may as well pack your trunk. TO GENEVIEVE Did the shimmy On thin ice A crack, a splash Paradise. AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW Water is a wondrous blessing Good for washing necks and ears. Just the thing for making rivers And surrounding ships and piers, Nice to park beneath the bridges. Swell for making rain and ink. Water is a wondrous blessing. But it makes a darn poor drink. Hunt — Are you dry yet? Bunt — Not by a cellarfulL Finals, finals, everywhere With drops and drops of ink. And never a Prof, who ' ll leave the room And allow a man to think. GENIUS?— PERHAPS " Yes, dearest, " he gushed softly, " in your face I find strength and character, no- bility and devotion, all that is finest in a woman ' s soul. " " You only say that, " she teased, " how do you know? " And like a flash of genius he sparkled, " I read between the lines, my dear, between the lines. " Frosh — Surveying a little? Engineer — No! Surveying a lot. ♦ ♦ ♦ It ' s a long skirt that causes no turning. +.„»- PAGE 348 I The Artemisia 1921 JAMES DANIEL L. W.

N the foregoing we have tried to give a truthful re sume of the events of the last college y ear. We have made mistakes yet we believe that they are no greater than those of our pre- decessors. The staff of the Artemisia has Worked faithfully and to them be- longs the small measure of credit which this book n ' perhaps receive.
