We mourn the loss of two distinguished citizens of our State, members of the Board of Regents, Dr. A. C. Olmsted of Wells and Judge George S. Brown of Reno, each of whom gave many years of faithful, unselfish service to the University, continually watchful of its interests and ever zealous for its continued development. . . . On August 27th, 1943, the State of Nevada was shocked by the sudden death of our President, Leon Wilson Hartman, while on vacation at Palo Alto, Cali- fornia. It is fitting that on these pages should be recorded, on behalf of the Regents, Faculty, Alumni, and Students, the profound appreciation of the long and efficient services of this beloved scholar, gentleman, friend, and their heartfelt sorrow that a life so distinguished and so useful to the State of his adoption has been brought to a close. He loved this University and, in the enthusiasm of his devotion, literally gave his life to its service. . . . The war has brought many problems to our campus. Our enrollment dropped from 787 men and 480 women, normal registration in the pre-war days, to 165 men and 322 women for the year 1943-1944. Of these 165 men, 66 already have entered the armed forces. . . . Sixteen mem- bers of our Faculty are on leave from the University, and are engaged in war work, a majority of them in the armed forces. ... At the present writing our service flag bears 1558 stars. Of these 22 are gold, representing those of our Alumni and Students who have given the " last full measure of devotion. " . . . In February, 1943, a special program of instruction was inaugurated for the Army Air Forces. A detachment of approximately 500 Aviation Students was enrolled in this program. A period of approximately five months was required to complete this course and as classes were graduated other Aviation Students were sent as replacements, so that the detachment was kept at full strength. In September, 1943, the Army Specialized Training Program was inaugurated in addition to the Army Air Force program. Approximately 100 Students were enrolled in this course. . . . Early this year both programs were terminated by the Federal government. . . . The Army Specialized Training program has been entirely liqui- dated. As the Army Air Forces Aviation Students are graduated no replacements are sent here and, by June 1st, 1944, this program also will be closed. A total of approximately 1877 students will have been graduated from these Army courses. It is a source of pride to the Regents and Faculty that this University was selected CHARLES H. GORMAN, acting President and inspirational leader MISS ALICE TERRY, Secretary to the President JOHN O. MOSELEY, new administrative head of the University of Nevada as one of the training centers for these detachments and was thus enabled to do its bit in the war effort. When it is considered that, in addition to these war programs, the usual peace-time courses for civilian students were in no way curtailed, the self-sacrifice and the patriotic devotion of our greatly reduced Faculty in carrying out this immensely enlarged University program proves our State to be not just words but a living thing: " All for Our Country. " . . . No other period in the University ' s history has witnessed the expenditure of so large a sum on permanent construction. Through the action of a far-seeing legislature and a sympathetic and understanding Governor, the University was provided with a new gymnasium that cost $300,000, an engineering building that cost $175,000, and in addition $75,000 was made available for the modernization of the heating plant. . . . The Regents and Faculty have no easy task as builders of this University. Doubts and disappointments will often arise to haunt them. In these hours of doubt and disappointment they shall often ask themselves, " What is all this building for? " " Why do we spend our money ' for that which is not bread, our labor for that which satisfieth not ' ? " " Why all this demand for books and teachers, for halls and funds? " Nor are they alone to ask these questions. . . . The State, before renewing its appropriation — the parents, before sending us our students — will often ask, " What for? " Let us have our answer ready. The ideas and ideals of this University are to fit our young people for careers, satisfactory to themselves and useful to mankind; to bring before the society of today the successes and failures of societies of the past; to dis- cover and make known how the forces of nature may be made to serve mankind; to hand to those who come after us the torch of experience by which we have been enlightened. Let us enable this University to endow the young people of our State with the power to distinguish the useless, the false and the fragile from the good, the true and the lasting. Standing for these ideas and ideals, let the University render grateful recognition to the citizens of this commonwealth for the generous provision they have made, enabling us to expand the University ' s sphere of usefulness. . . . May the University in its lite and work be their eternal justification. ... To the Students and Alumni this University should be as a family ' s glorious old mother, to whom you are always anxious to return and by whose hearth you always love to sit. Love her. It does one good to love noble things, to attach one ' s self to noble allegiances and so it is good to be loyal to the University which stands in our lives for the loftiest ideals. . . . And so I say cheer for her; love her; it will do your heart and life good. REGENTS Biggest task facing Board of Regents during the past year was the selection of a new president to succeed the late Dr. Leon W. Hartman. Chosen to serve as president is Dr. John O. Moseley of University of Tennessee. Silas E. Ross served as chairman of the board. JEANETTE C.

Wood ARTS AND SCIENCE Arts and Science students still outnumber those enrolled in the colleges of engineering and agriculture, the other two on the Nevada campus, although war has had great effects on this college as well as the others. Classrooms found engineering students in civilian classes, much to the delight of coeds on a practically manless campus. In line with the war effort, a course for nurses ' aides was offered and accepted enthusiastically as a way in which coeds could aid the war effort in their own community. Several professors were called from the campus, with substitutes filling in until such time as college life returns to normal. Realizing the importance that a good educa- tion can play in a successful life, Nevada students have continued their schooling despite wartime curtailments in both curricular and extra cur- ricular activities. We are the ones who shall have to build the world of tomorrow on a firm foundation, who will have to bring order out of chaos, and education will aid in reaching that goal. BENJAMIN F.

Among the exhibits have been the works of Marion Root, John Stoll, Walter Swan, members of the Reno Latimer Art Club and University art classes. Several tryees gualified for membership during the year by sitting at exhibits, poster or publicity work, and were initiated at informal ceremonies.

Frances, Isabel and Dorothy busily type out stories. This year found the journalism department starting out on its own, as a separate school and no longer a part of the English department. In becom- ing a school, the department will gain wider recognition throughout the United States, former students garnering a higher standing and future graduates will be recognized for what they are. Enrollment in journalism jumped at a time when University enrollment was dropping fast, although by the middle of the semester, most of the men were gone. This past semester enrollment was again fair, showing an increase over last. Junior- senior classes are all-girl aggregations, although there are a few sophomore and freshman men in other classes. This year. Prof. A. L. Higginbotham_, head of the journalism department, compiled a news- letter that was sent to journalism alumni telling of the activities of fellow students. ALFRED HIGGINBOTHAM, Head of Department of Journalism JOURNALISM ENGINEERING War has greatly curtailed activities on the engineering side of the quad during the past year, as engineering has primarily been for men students and they are few and far between othe campus this year. Along with the regular classes, the social end of engineering life, including the Associated Engineers, Nu Eta Epsilon, honorary fraternity. Civil, Electrical and Mechani- cal Engineers, all found themselves in practically a state of non-existence. Greater emphasis was placed upon the importance of engineering in the war. Members of last year ' s graduating class found themselves in imme- diate demand, but mostly, of course, by Uncle Sam, who was most anxious to obtain their services. Engineers practically have a side of the campus to themselves as east side of the quad is known strictly as the engineers ' side. Electrical Engineering building, focal point of interest lor engineers PROFESSORS Newest building on the engineer side, which is " down in the hol- low, " had class meetings, although it is not yet fully equipped. To add a definite tinge of variety, a group of army specialized train- ing program trainees were sta- tioned on the campus and were enrolled in engineering courses. A large class of the group grad- uated at ceremonies this spring, and were then sent on to other training schools or army camps. FREDERICK L.

Jack Layson at work at his drawing board. When the army engineering training unit was disbanded on this campus this spring, trainees who had not yet graduated were sent to other colleges conducting similar programs, to complete their courses. In Mackay Science building, civilian students shared their labs with both engineering trainees and aviation students Stately architecture of the new engineering buildinrj adds to campus beauty ENGINEERING Members of the engineering sguadrons attended classes along with civilian students, while sepa- rate classes were conducted for the aviation trainees. Because of the great interest in engineering, and the excellent school on this campus, it is believed that many under-graduate students will re- turn to complete their engineering courses at the end of this war, as they did at the end of the last war. Engineer Boudwin puts his knowl- edge to practical application at the lathe in the engineering lab Prof. Oliver and mechanical engineers make inspection of an airplane engine AGRICULTURE As hard hit as other colleges on campus during the past year was the college of agriculture, which found that tho majority of its students were women registered in the home economics side of the college. However, many students enrolled in the related subject classes, which includes such things as animal husbandry, botany, biology and agronomy. Most of the classes are held in the Agriculture building, which also houses the herb- arium, soils laboratory, dairy experiment lab, and other science labs. On the second floor of the building, one can hear the whirl of sewing machines or smell cooking food, while, down at the other end of the hall, students are meeting " Mr. Bones, " and are finding out just how he ' s put together. Included among the home economics room is a homey dining-room that is often used by other groups on campus as a meeting place. View of Aggie building across Manzanita Lake PROFESSORS In all, seven buildings on campus are devoted to agriculture, includ- ing, besides the Aggie building, the Hatch, in which the experi- ment station is located; at Morrill hall are found governmental of- fices relating to such things as irrigation, erosion and state plan- ning; in the Extension Service building other government agen- cies and bureaus are found. A greenhouse, a farm east of the. campus and an experimental farm near Fallon are also a part .of the agricultural set-up on the campus. PHILIP A.

In Aggie labs, tests are made by students, so that they can have a complete understanding of what they ' re working with. They really ■ learn what makes things tick. HELENE BATJER: " Batch " ; first woman pres- ident of A. S.U.N. Her pleasing personality and efficiency proved women ' s ability to lead campus affairs Assemblies have been few and far between this year. Of real in- terest was Homecoming when we stood in a moment ' s silence for the late Dean of Women, Mrs. Lucile B. Benson. On National Students day, Dr. Wiederhold re- minded us of the sacrifices of the European students. The Freshmen- Sophomores presented a novelty assembly hour in January. March featured the Junior-Senior classes on the stage. Last good one was the Mackay Day assembly, which was quite different from previous Mackay assemblies. Our year was closed with installation of new officers and the departing students wishing them " best of luck.

S., a national organization of undergraduate women, sponsored two main speakers, in the fall Nurse Newton, a representative of the cadet nursing program, and, in the spring, Mrs. Kent Wallace, A. A. U.W. president for the state of Nevada. The annual spring fashion show, scholarship money- maker, was another highlight of spring. A Women ' s War Council tea was held at the A.T.O. house to incorporate war work on the campus. The campus Red Cross chapter found many activities to supply the girls with war work. To maintain closer cooperation among the women ' s groups and campus organizations, a recrea- tional program was installed, con- sisting of voluntary competitive outdoor exercise.

An alumni magazine was issued by the asso- ciation, with Ty Cobb serving as the editor and Tom Wilson as the business manager. Taking over the duties of graduate manager was Prof. Leonard Chadwick, who worked in close cooperation with the students and various campus organizations. :harles D- roeder Alum President PUBLICATION . . . FINANCE Biggest problem facing the Publications Board during the past year was the selection of new heads for both the editorial and business staffs of the Sagebrush. For the first time in the history of the University, an all-woman staff took over activities. Members of the Finance Control Board passed on budgets presented during the year. Dr. Ernest L.

Unable to secure dinks for the men students, punishment could not be meted for failure to wear them. . . . As usual, the committees checked on the attendance of freshmen at the annual painting of the " N, " and punishment was devised for those who failed to put in an appearance or present an excuse.

We presented a panel to the Board of Re- gents with the qualifications we felt a new University President should possess. Or- ganizations were classified, and seventeen were put on the inactive list for the dura- tion. The War Council and Bond Drives were approved and encouraged. Sompli- mentary student body cards have been sent to High School Student Body Presi- dents, to further a closer feeling between Nevada high schools and the University.

Aided by the senior class, a joint assembly was sponsored, and had as its theme a take- off of popular radio shows. It was declared one of the hit assemblies of the year. During senior week, the juniors came to the fore to play hosts to the prospective grads and entertained them at a picnic. Class activities of the juniors, as with all other classes, were at a minimum during the past year, however, due to the decreased enrollment.

ACKAY DAY ARTEMISIA STAFF BETTE POE, Editor Obstacles developed in every path we took, until finally we had to cut the size of the book and go ahead on our limited budget. We decided to abandon the theme idea and place full emphasis on an issue designed to appeal to the campus mind and dedicated to the ideals for which we are fighting this war. . . . Staff worked sporadically but somewhat effectively. Orchids go to Viola Sorensen who willingly wrote most of the write-ups, Jane Dugan who mounted almost all of the panels, Florene Miller who did most of the essential office work, Virginia Olesen who did the filing, and Lucile Brown who had charge of the senior histories, and the rest of the staff who helped out in the pinches.

Prospects for a football team looked quite promising when the Wolf Pack was combined with the team from the Reno Army Air Base to form the Flying Wolf Pack, and it was as such that the season was com- pleted. Came spring and time to have a basketball team, and again the Wolf Pack came through with a team. During both the football and basketball seasons, most opponent teams were from some branch of military service.

HARRY FROST, Chairman of Athletic Board FOOTBALL Blocked on all sides with a manpower shortage and other wartime limitations, a 26-man foot- ball squad turned out last fall to romp around the gridiron as the 1943 University of Nevada Wolf Pack. Before the first game was played, the war department sent greetings to two of the fellows, and others were taken from the team by injuries. . . . After two games, the Wolf Pack squad, whittled down to 18 men, journeyed to Kezar Stadium to play a 50-man University of San Francisco Dons squad that outweighed the Pack 15 pounds to the man. Battling valiantly, the crippled Pack held the Dons to a 0-0 score and returned home short one more man. ... In order to keep football going at Nevada, Coach Jim Aiken found it necessary to merge with the Reno Army Air Base squad coached by Lieut. Dayton Doerler. The combine was titled the Nevada Flying Wolves and went to Salt Lake City for a 27-19 win over the University of Utah eleven two weeks later.

Merlin Shea, Roger Parker Iim Aiken and Al Dockey, four itaileis in the lineup FOOTBALL The Homecoming game rolled around, and the Flying Wolves faced the Salt Lake City Wings on Mackay Field for a 0-0 score. . . . However, the following week only 13 men turned out for scrimmage. Two of the univer- sity men had been injured; two received calls into the service. Some of the air base gridders were injured, others transferred, and a few on fur- lough. Coach Aiken cancelled the last game, which was to be played with the Alameda Coast Guard eleven. ... At the coach ' s reguest, the Board of Athletic Control formally ended football when it became evident that even the combined Wolf Pack-Reno Army Air Base sguads were too small to finish the season. . . . Out of six games in the season, the Wolf Pack and later the Flying Wolves came out with four wins and two ties, probably to end the pigskin parade at Nevada for the duration of the war.

Nevertheless, sports were offered for the women students, although there was no gymnasium space available for such activities on campus.
